American counternarcotics policy in Afghanistan has been senseless, as growing opium poppies remains the only source of income that keeps rural areas alive. Meanwhile millions of US dollars pumped into the country end up in the pockets of warlords expe…

The Establishment is setting up Donald Trump.
The mainstream media hates him. Hollywood hates him. The “Intellectual Yet Idiot” academia class hates him.
Most critically, the CIA hates him. So does the rest of the Deep State, or the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy. They did everything possible to stop Trump from taking office. None of it worked.
I think the CIA hates Trump for a very simple reason: he’s threatening to take away their livelihood.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (July 31, 2017) – Yesterday, an Arkansas law went into effect that will help facilitate healthcare freedom and set the stage to nullify federally run healthcare in practice. Rep. Justin Gonzales (R-Okolona) sponsored House Bill 2240 (HB2240). The legislation specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not…

General Raymond Thomas, who heads the US special operations command, says the US is in Syria illegally and could be forced out by Russia
The commander of the US Special Operations Command, Gen. Raymond Thomas, has dropped a bombshell in an intervi…
Mike Pompeo sounds increasingly unhinged when talking about Russia, Wikileaks and the media.
- In a tirade against Russia based news outlets RT and Sputnik, Donald Trump’s CIA Director Mike Pompeo blasted Russia for interfering not only in the 2016 US Presidential election but “the one before that and the one before that”. This would imply that Russia helped install Barack Obama in the White House even after his severely anti-Russian foreign policy became well known.
HARRISBURG, Pa. (July 24, 2017) – A bill introduced in the Pennsylvania House would ban the use of “stingrays” to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications without a warrant in most situations. The proposed law would not only protect privacy in Pennsylvania, but would also hinder one aspect of the federal…
President Trump gave an interview to his favorite newspaper, the NYT. He allowed that he wouldn’t have appointed Jeff Sessions Attorney General had he known Sessions would recuse himself from the Russian allegations. Meanwhile A.G. Sessions has been busying himself by renewing the federal asset forfeiture program. Cover Your Asset Forfeiture Program A little pithier
