The Obama Administration Violates the First Amendment

In an earlier post, I related the story of Frontline's piece, "The United States of Secrets"... truly a MUST-SEE film for anyone who loves Liberty. This past Sunday, 60 Minutes essentially re-told a portion of that same piece in a story entitled, "The War on Leaks". Show More Summary

Libertarian for Bobby Shriver

Two progressives are running for Los Angeles County Supervisor in the 3rd District -- Sheila Kuehland Bobby Shriver. As a libertarian, I endorse Shriver. Both Kuehl and Shriver are longtime Santa Monica residents, as am I. So I have watched their political careers for many years. Show More Summary

AB 2351 Assures California Libertarian Party's Ballot Access

Los Angeles Libertarian Party activist Ted Brown sent out the following news item from Richard Winger of Ballot Access News:"On September 30, Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB 2351. It makes it easier for a group to qualify as a 'party.' It changes the registration test from 1% of the last gubernatorial vote, to 0.33% of total registration. Show More Summary

Obama's Wars = NeoCon, Kabuki Theater

On Democracy Now!, Jeremy Scahill (author of the NYT bestseller, Dirty Wars) described Obama's drone wars as "Kabuki Theater". He implicitly referred to the Iraqi-Syrian ISIS War as the same. Mr. Scahill is right on the money. Let's also include the War in Afghanistan, the present purpose of which is unclear to just about everyone. Show More Summary

Obama, George Orwell, Propaganda, and War

If I didn't know better, I'd say that Barack Obama is channeling the spirit of George Orwell. Remember Orwell's classic, 1984? That book easily could be re-issued with the title, 2014. In the dystopian 1984, we have "doublethink", the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously... Show More Summary

Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County's 2014 California Ballot Proposition Suggestions

Here are the Los Angeles County LP's recommendations for the November 2014 statewide ballot propositions for California.

Obama's Latest War Propaganda

On 60 Minutes this past Sunday, Our President essentially said this (paraphrased) about the current ISIS war: it's not really a war; instead, it's counter-terrorism. The unmitigated gall of the man finally has surpassed that of Dubya Bush & Dick Cheney...which I didn't think was possible. Show More Summary

Obama's Lies Increase in Size and Number

https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/09/28/u-s-officials-invented-terror-group-justify-bombing-syria/If it weren't so tragic, it would be absolutely comical.1. A President decides that he alone can launch a war.2. Problem: The Constitution says otherwise.3. Show More Summary

Obama Should be Impeached for...

violating the Constitution and his Oath to preserve, protect, and defend it. Finally, a Law Professor and the editorial board of the NYT agree with my assessment of the Constitution. At least now someone does... publicly. So, why aren't the Repubs all over this? Probably because they want the same illegal power that Obama has. Show More Summary

Fanatics, Oligarchs, Propaganda, and What's Really Important

Below is my Reply to a friend's email & an article he attached. Another attempt to paint all Muslims as terrorists. Mohammed was warlike because when Islam was founded, polytheistic beliefs reigned supreme at the time in that region of Arabia, & their adherents all attacked Muslims...attempting to run them out of the region or kill them.

Rand Paul Is No Ron Paul

Because I'm a pessimist, I never had much hope for Senator Rand Paul. Unless and until a politician proves otherwise, I assume he'll support the politically safe, mainstream positions.Ron Paul earned his reputation as a maverick. Rand...Show More Summary

The Third Iraq War, Terrorism, and Common Sense

Let's set aside the U.S. Constitution for the time being. Instead, let us view the current war situation from the standpoint of common sense...simple logic. Query: why would anyone believe any of the following to be true???1. The U.S. Show More Summary

Problems with Obama's War Actions, and War Propaganda from the State-Corporate Complex

1. The White House (via their Press Secretary) declared war on ISIS; this despite the fact that the Executive Branch has no Constitutional authority to do so.2. As in the period leading up to the Second Iraq War (2003), the public essentially is presented with two choices: do nothing, or go to war. Show More Summary

Federal Organized Crime and War - A Partial History

1. Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution directs Congress to regulate the value of our money. A cabal of mega bankers managed to ram through the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. Under that Act, the Fed Board of Governors assumes the task of regulation of our money's value. Show More Summary

Obama Says He's Using "Existing Authority" for...

sending war planes into Syria. Really, Mr. Obama? What exactly is that existing authority? The military cannot be used legally to avenge the murders of journalists; that's a matter for Law Enforcement. In a previous post, I've explained the Constitutionally permitted uses of our armed forces, and the current scenario definitely is NOT included. Show More Summary

Saudi Arabia, Extremism, and Jihadis

It would do we Americans well to be aware of a few facts regarding Saudi Arabia, especially given that they supposedly are our ally.1. In the last couple months, there were 113 beheadings in "The Kingdom". They were executions of criminals. Show More Summary
