The Reckless US Worldview

THE CONFRONTATION BETWEEN the U.S. and North Korea has cooled off slightly with Kim Jong-un’s announcement that, at least for the time being, he will not attack Guam with an “enveloping fire.” So since we have a small breather before Armageddon, let’s take the time to understand what this conflict is all about. A good place to start is with the repeated comparisons U.S. politicians have made between the situation with North Korea and the Cuban missile crisis in October 1962. For instance, Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, recently said, “This is analogous to the Cuban missile crisis.” According to … Continue reading

Sleep More, Weigh Less

By Dr. Mercola Nearly 71 percent of U.S. adults aged 20 and over are overweight or obese. Among children, nearly 21 percent of 12- to 19-year-olds are considered obese, along with 17 percent of 6- to 11-year-olds and 9 percent of 2- to 5-year-olds.1 Exercise and, particularly, diet, definitely play a role in this epidemic, but there’s another often-overlooked factor that may help people to keep their weight in check with little added effort. In fact, it requires nothing but getting more sleep. Like overweight and obesity, insufficient sleep is a public health problem in the U.S. — and it could be … Continue reading

What Afghanistan Looked Like

In 1967, Dr. William Podlich, an amateur photographer and college professor, took a leave of absence from his job at Arizona State to work with UNESCO in Kabul, bringing his wife and daughters along with him. It was here that Podlich documented Afghanistan, at a time before the U.S. invasion, Russian war, and Marxist revolution had touched the land with its power and destruction. The photos expose a place that once looked healthy in its nature, strong in its structure, and flourishing with free people. But soon the Soviet invasion of 1979 would open the doors to the destruction of the … Continue reading

The 2nd US Domestic War

“They had found a leader, Robert E. Lee — and what a leader! … No military leader since Napoleon has aroused such enthusiastic devotion among troops as did Lee when he reviewed them on his horse Traveller.” So wrote Samuel Eliot Morison in his magisterial “The Oxford History of the American People” in 1965. First in his class at West Point, hero of the Mexican War, Lee was the man to whom President Lincoln turned to lead his army. But when Virginia seceded, Lee would not lift up his sword against his own people, and chose to defend his home … Continue reading

Nice To Have an AK-47 Handy

A Florida woman in Panama City Beach heard the sounds of three men breaking into his vehicle early Sunday morning. She woke her husband to tell him, the moment so many gun owners secretly dread. He then reportedly got up, had her secure their children, and went out to confront the three men who were breaking into their car outside. However, this Florida man wasn’t the dolt that has become synonymous with the phrase “Florida man” in recent years. He knew there was a 9mm pistol in the car, and he went out to confront the burglars armed with AK-47. The … Continue reading

My history with Christopher Cantwell

When I wrote recently that libertarianism and fascism have a complicated relationship, I was thinking specifically about people like Christopher Cantwell, who represented the grassroots movement for violent white nationalism in the VICE documentary on Charlottesville. The SPLC (which which I have my grievances) has a good history of Cantwell’s libertarian thought leadership and activism. My history with … [Read more…]
