    Shutting down InfoWars may not be the actual goal here, but Free Speech. Regardless of what is shown in the videos, what is being normalized is the assaults on the mental images of people who use Free Speech to expose Lies of the Govt. If the real target was Free Speech itself, they would not attack the popular thing to say. Having control of the narrative can be exploited to change the mental perceptions of people who are not Liberal or Liberal leaning, while simultaneously validating existing perspectives. By attacking InfoWars, they are also attacking the perceptions of everyone else who does not believe their narrative. I must consider that it is very plausible that the real goal is not InfoWars itself, but everyone else by using InfoWars as a scapegoat. Once you convince the people to change their perspective on a given subject, they will openly support change that further restricts freedom. There are Four sides to an argument. There is always a Speaker and there is always a Listener. Another perspective is Agreement opposed by Disagreement. The Four sides are a Matrix by combining those two categories. Listeners can choose to either Agree or Disagree with any given narrative. Speakers will also lean toward expressing ideas they only Agree with, so Speaking your own idea that is Disagreed with rarely ever happens without manipulation. With nearly full control of the Narrative, what youre hearing seems to be universally supportive of one idea, which is Big Govt. What theyve done with the Narrative is to create an Illusion of Choice by saying "support this point of view" or "support that point of view", but both points of view end with the same result, which is Bigger Govt. The way the MSM works is to control "who" is allowed to speak. If an opinion is expressed that supports either Trap of Big Govt, then the opinion is allowed. So its what is not said here, as usual, that is more important. For the majority of Listeners, they hear one side of the argument, which silences their own opinions, and further reinforces the cycle. That leaves the majority of Listeners with a set of arguments that end up supporting one idea. They hear no other perspectives which would support Smaller Govt, which is why the Internet is so important to Freedom. They control the masses by telling people what to think, which means they must not tell people what they do not want people to think at the same time. The latter being MUCH more important than the first. Thus, in order to control the Internet the same way as one way MSM works, every major communication platform must incorporate Self Censorship and exploit Private Property to control that Narrative. The way to control the Narrative on the internet incorporating the previous ideas of silencing specific opinions is to create and support major platforms that choose to Self Censor, or heavily bias the way information is presented to people. I think we all know that Google and Twitter and the likes of the major platforms that reach a broad spectrum of people is very very Left Leaning, while the Right Leaning are only supported if the Narrative is for Big Govt, thus maintaining the Illusion of Choice. The reality is there is no difference between MSMs brand of Left and Right as both sides call for Big Govt, and the ones that are constantly shut down is anyone who supports Smaller / Less Govt.

    What The Hell? Congress Steps In To Shut Down InfoWars InfoWars Link: https://www.infowars.com/what-the-hell-congress-steps-in-to-shut-down-infowars/ Even if you dont like Alex Jones / Infowars, do you think he has a Constitutional Right to exercise Free Speech and Free Press? Is it not more important to protect the Rights of people to express statements we do not agree with rather than only protect expressions that we do agree with? Is it only the "popular" thing to say that deserves the protection of the First Amendment? Alternatively, do you think Alex Jones abuses his Free Speech by yelling Fire in a crowded theater, since its the most common example of what "not" to say? Does Alex Jones bully people? Does he lie? Does he misconstrue the information to distort perception? Whats your take?

    Exactly...could have blown the lid off the whole stinking mess. ALLExit! That's why the system had no choice but to shut it down...even if only symbolic, the repercussions to the superstate were too great. Maybe a few people will wake up to who is really running the show here.

    I'm with Rand. Trump is either going to imperfectly push for peace or embrace interventionism, he has flirted with both. Criticizing his performance if you support diplomacy doesn't push him more into the Amash camp, it tells him to listen to Bolton if he wants to be popular. If Ron or Rand were president they would have met with Putin and received this same flak. About time to err on the side of humility in foreign relations.

    Indeed. If only the South had nicely asked permission to secede, many lives could have been saved. The blood of that war is on their hands, for not filing the necessary permits.

    ?? What the hell are you talking about? I live in Ohio and my family is in Western PA. The under $50K white people are my crowd. lol Sure, many of them like Trump, but they HATE Hillary! They didn't go to the polls over immigration - they went to make sure that bitch wasn't in the White House. They would have voted for Lucifer if he had a chance to keep her from winning. We don't have immigrants taking our jerbs - we were losing our coal and steel jobs to regulation. Immigration was an issue, but it was way down the list. Top of the list??? Keeping out the Hildabeest. ETA this link: https://www.migrationpolicy.org/programs/data-hub/charts/us-immigrant-population-state-and-county Click on Total in the "Select Country/Region of Origin" box and look at the numbers by state. The states I listed are barely impacted by immigration. If you click into the states, you'll see it's even more localized and the areas most heavily impacted actually went for Hillary.

    So, I must live on the Amash planet, then. I, too, thought Trump did the exact right thing, but masterfully f'd it up. And to make it worse, he looked like a hostage reading his backtracking statement. I thought Ron and Rand were right to give Trump praise for doing the right thing, but they ignored the mistakes he made. Glad to see Amash isn't doing that. You don't go into a press conference looking like Putin's lapdog. You don't let him off the hook for "meddling" in the internal affairs of our country. If anything, you say, "Putin and I discussed ways to get the nations of the world to stop meddling in the affairs of other countries - something that ALL of our intelligence agencies do. Putin says they didn't do it?? Pfft. We ALL do it!" Would he take heat for that statement? Of course. But it's FAAAAAARRRR more accurate and it would prevent this ridiculous "rally 'round our intel community" thing you've got going on. In total, I think this is a big nothing and on the whole, it was a good thing if you take the long view. But it could have been so much better. Kudos to Amash for giving the praise and the concern.

    Wait a minute, Bernie Sanders is upset that he believes the Russians hacked emails that showed Hillary Clinton stole the election from him? He is another one who should be thanking the Russians.. I mean, really he should thank Seth Rich, but if he believes it was the Russians he should be thanking them. So weird.

    I'm not sure why they think they can just vote to determine who governs them. They would need a state constitutional amendment, and also US congressional approval, if thats what they want to do. If they are serious about this, they should really start to call up each and every congressman in the country to start asking them for permission to vote on this.

    Looking into Puerto Rico and the no capital gains a little more, is interesting. I don't think Zippy's articles quite gave us the whole story.. I believe that if you go to Puerto Rico with investments acquired before the move, you have to pay a capital gains tax as much as 15%, but I think you pay it to Puerto Rico as opposed to the Federal Government. So instead of giving money to the criminal US Govt, you can give money to the criminal Puerto Rican government, which is definitely a plus I think. Now, if you went to Puerto Rico, sold your bitcoin, and then invested the money in other investments and asset classes, which would be easy since EuroPacific Capital is located there, then you could then take advantage of the 0% capital gains tax. That in and of itself may be a good reason to move there.

    Nah. No other state has the same issues as California that could justify being broken up into 3 states using US constitution logic. You could get there with Anti-Federalist or some other type of extra-constitutionalist logic or principle, tho.
