Defense Spending: Do Presidents Make a Difference?

It’s generally taken for granted in the press and by the "Defense Cognoscenti" that the election of a president is a major determinant of  the size and shape of the defense budget.  It is also conventional wisdom that Republicans have been more pro-defense than Democrats — with the degree of being pro-defense measured by the size of the defense budget.  If these assumptions were universally true, the historical record would bear this out.  But the historical record is mixed, to put it charitably.

In Dallas, Drone Wars Just Came Home

The Dallas shootings have ushered in a very new world for US citizens. For the very first time, drones have been used on US soil to kill Americans without trial or charges. The suspected shooter in yesterday's tragic killings, US Army veteran Micah Xavier Johnson, was, according to police and press reports, holed up in a parking garage and would not give himself up. After hours of what police claimed were fruitless negotiations with Johnson, a weaponized robot was sent to where he was hiding and blown up, taking Johnson with it.

Ron Paul: Afghanistan a Failure Whether Washington Likes it or Not

As President Obama was announcing today that he would be leaving 3,000 more US troops than planned in Afghanistan, Ron Paul told Fox Business it would be best to bring all the troops home. Drawing down from the current 9,800 US troops to 8,400 instead of the planned 5,500 "is not going to make any difference," said Dr. Paul. "He needs to bring them all home and change the policy."

Blair’s Lies On Iraq Exposed. Is W Next?

The Chilcot Report has now been published in full. Tony Blair wanted to be a billionaire. But all that money can’t buy his reputation back. He is thoroughly disgraced. The shame fairly reeks.

Blair, dressed for a funeral, denies, denies, denies. He knows no shame, but he has been shamed.

Curious that the Brits were willing to do what an American bipartisan War Party refused to do: doggedly pursue the truth and then publish it all.

The Latest TSA Horror: This is How They Protect us!

A partially blind, partially deaf young woman returning home from treatment for a brain tumor was brutally smashed to the ground by goon tug TSA “security” while her mother, a nurse, was shoved away.

The good tugs responsible should get at least 30 years in a maximum security prison for assault with intent to kill. But nothing will happen to them. Their corrupt bosses always cover up for the psychopaths who occupy so many “security” and police positions from which they exercise unaccountable brutality over those of us forced to pay their salaries.

What the Istanbul Attack Reveals

Imagine my surprise. The government solution to prevent attacks at airports has done nothing but moved the point at airports where crowds gather---that is, it just movies the location of the optimum soft target for terrorists.

Also, of note, but not mentioned in this video about the incident, the airport terrorists in the Istanbul attack entered and attacked through the exit gates where passengers leave the airport. This area was less protected versus the arrival area.

As horrific as these attacks are, in the grand scheme of things the casualties from the attacks are not significant in number. More people die in the United States each year from falling out of bed.
