Ron Paul and Jimmy Dore Explore Their Common Ground on Big Issues

Jimmy Dore, in his interview last week with libertarian communicator Ron Paul at the Jimmy Dore Show, pointed out that, while Dore calls himself a progressive and Paul is considered a libertarian, the two men “agree on the big things, meaning free speech and noninterventionism — ending our foreign wars and regime change wars.” Continuing, Dore states, “we agree on liberty and we agree that someone like Edward Snowden is actually a hero.”

The Libertarian Party Chairman is Denouncing Ron Paul Again


You may recall United States Libertarian Party Chairman Nicholas Sarwark, in a December of 2016 interview, denouncing prominent libertarian communicator Ron Paul’s support for states’ rights. In that interview, Sarwark said Paul, who ran three times for US president including once as the Libertarian Party nominee, “had policy prescriptions that were straight-up wrong and anti-libertarian.”

Ron Paul: Watch Out for the Effort to Lie Us into War with Iran

In a new interview with host Scott Horton at the Scott Horton Show, prominent libertarian communicator and peace proponent Ron Paul discussed how Secretary of State Mike Pompeo presenting a “gross distortion” purposed to blame Iran for the harming of two ships last week in the Middle East fits in with a broader effort to “lie us into war” against Iran. “We should be awake from all their shenanigans,” Paul advises.

New York Ends Religious Exemption for Vaccinations


On Thursday, the New York state legislature passed and New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law legislation (S2994A) eliminating the religious exemption parents in the state have been able to exercise to refuse state-mandated vaccinations for their children as a condition for their children attending school. This legal change leaves parents with only a narrow medical exemption given that New York had already barred use of a philosophical exemption.

Making 911 Call Responses Safer


Calling 911 is marketed as a means to obtain help and safety when danger arises. But, when cops arrive in response to a 911 call, they can make a dangerous situation more dangerous and even make it deadly. This can especially be the case when the individual who makes the 911 call or is the subject of the call has a disability or a mental health issue.

Rutherford Institute President John W. Whitehead expressed the problem pithily in his October of 2017 editorial “Don’t Call the Cops If You’re Autistic, Deaf, Mentally Ill, Disabled or Old”: “Trained to shoot first and ask questions later, police pose a risk to anyone with special needs whose disabilities may not be immediately apparent or require more finesse than the typical freeze-or-I’ll-shoot tactics employed by America’s police forces.”

US Libertarian Party Chairman Promoting Video Calling for Venezuela Regime Change


You might hope that at least the United States Libertarian Party could be counted on not to support the US government’s effort to install its chosen politician as president of Venezuela. Oh well. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Earlier this month, a “Dear Libertarian” letter from party chairman Nicholas Sarwark appeared on the Libertarian Party’s website in which Sarwark promotes viewing a video by Kyle Varner — described by Sarwark as a party member — in which Varner delivers the US government’s regime change line in regard to the South America country.

Mike Gravel Says Legalize All Drugs

The support for marijuana legalization is so strong among Democrats that there may be no hope for any United States presidential candidate who supports marijuana prohibition to achieve the party’s nomination. Indeed, we have witnessed Democratic candidate after candidate express support for legalization. Even long-time drug warrior Joe Biden, though he has held back from endorsing legalization, said through a spokesperson last month that he supports several significant marijuana law liberalizations.
