The Great Ron Paul, Smeared Again

So a staffer working for Ron Paul made a terrible mistake today and tweeted out a picture which included very ugly stereotype caricatures of Jews, blacks and I'm not sure who-all. They deleted it immediately after followers replied pointing out the caricatures at the...

4/8/19 Joanne Leon on the Principled Russiagate Skeptics

Scott talks to Joanne Leon of Around the Empire about all the left-leaning journalists who were skeptical of the mainstream “Russaigate” narrative all along, which, as opponents of President Trump, went against their interest in a certain sense. These people held an unpopular opinion because they believed the principle was right, and they deserve recognition now that it’s pretty clear there’s no evidence of collusion with the Russians.

4/4/19 Ryan McMaken Explains the Real Cause of Economic Instability

Ryan McMaken joins the show to explain the economics of central banks—specifically the way our Federal Reserve destroys people’s savings by inflating the money supply and causes the boom/bust cycle through its manipulation of interest rates. People will often object, says McMaken, that without a central bank unbridled capitalism would take the U.S. back to the economic dark ages, but he points out that we have had one for most of America’s worst financial crises, including the great depression and the crashes of the 70s and 80s. Central banks are the cause of the problem, not the solution.

Discussed on the show:

Ryan McMaken is a senior editor at the Mises Institute. He has degrees in economics and political science from the University of Colorado, and was the economist for the Colorado Division of Housing from 2009 to 2014. He is the author of Commie Cowboys: The Bourgeoisie and the Nation-State in the Western Genre.

4/4/19 Matt Agorist on the Political Tactics of the New Zealand Terrorist

Scott talks to Matt Agorist of the Free Thought Project about the recent shooting in New Zealand and the tactics used by the killer to intentionally sow political division. The point of radical action is often to provoke an equally violent political backlash, explains Scott, as it surely was in this case. Is it any wonder, ask Scott and Matt, that America’s killing of civilians abroad has done nothing but cause an increase in terrorism?

3/30/19 Aaron Maté Was Also Right About Russiagate

Aaron Maté discusses the aftermath of the Russia investigation and what it’s revealed about mainstream American journalists. In addition to seriously undermining media credibility, the obsession with possible Russian influence over the president has made it next to impossible for Trump to do anything that might be seen as helpful for Putin, like pulling troops out of Syria or pushing for nuclear detente.
