Butler Shaffer, R.I.P.



We mourn the passing of our good friend Butler Shaffer, who died Sunday afternoon at the age of 84. Butler was a libertarian at a time when there were very few libertarians in the world. Like many supporters of the free market, he was first attracted to the Republican Party. He supported Barry Goldwater for President in 1964, but he soon came to realize that limited government was a chimera and that the State was by nature opposed to liberty.

Keeping Green Party Candidates Off Ballots


The United States Green Party issued a press release Thursday announcing it is seeking “to get ballot lines for all 50 states and DC and the U.S. territories in 2020.” This would be an improvement over the 2016 US general election. The press release states that the party had ballot access in 47 states then, with access in three of those states just for write-in votes.

Swalwell: Failing To Turn Over Documents Is Proof Of Guilt


Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., has made sensational statements into a signature style over the last couple years. However, this week Swalwell appears to be contesting the touchstone of due process: the presumption of innocence. On Tuesday, Swalwell declared that, President Donald Trump refuses to give Congress the documents and witnesses that it has demanded, he is clearly guilty of all charged offenses. Swalwell declared “We can only conclude that you’re guilty.” Trump has gone to the courts to challenge the demands under presidential immunities and privileges.

WikiLeaks Exposes OPCW Chemical Attack Report Truth

Wikileaks has blown the lid off of the bait & switch scandal at the Organization for the Prevention of Nuclear Weapons (OPCW), the UN agency tasked with investigating and reporting on the alleged chemical attack at Douma in Syria last year. With its latest release, Wikileaks has given us an insider view into what was going on as the investigators who had been in Douma were shocked to find that their analysis and conclusions were not only ignored in the final report (which was written by those who had not been on site), but actually the final report issued conclusions that were the opposite of their findings. RPI Director Daniel McAdams joins Tyrel Ventura on Watching the Hawks to discuss the enormity of this scandal - and why the mainstream media won't touch it with a ten foot pole...

Removing Marijuana Restrictions for Baseball Players


Some American professional sports organizations, such as the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB), have served as auxiliary enforcers of the United States government’s marijuana prohibition, testing players for marijuana use and imposing penalties on them if it is determined they have used marijuana. On Thursday, MLB, along with the Major League Baseball Players Association, announced a reversal of that policy for baseball players, starting with the 2020 spring training.

Edward Snowden Speaks Out for Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning


Julian Assange of WikiLeaks has been silenced. Assange was prevented from communicating with the outside world in his final 13 months at the Ecuador embassy in London, where he had obtained sanctuary from extradition to the United States. The silencing has continued in a British prison where Assange has been detained pending extradition to the US since British police forcibly removed him from the embassy in April.

Leaving Half The Country Behind: Poll Shows Majority Now Opposes Impeachment


During the testimony last week, I expressed various concerns with the artificially short period allowed for the impeachment investigation due to the Democratic pledge to impeach President Donald Trump by Christmas. Not only will that abbreviated period leave a thin and incomplete record, but it will leave “half of this country behind.” That appears to be exactly the right estimate. A new Monmouth poll shows that 50 percent of the country now opposes impeachment. The polling in some swing states is even worse. In other words, this impeachment is playing to the Democratic base and little beyond it — precisely what Speaker Nancy Pelosi pledged that she would not allow to happen.
