Pentagon to Send Troops, Air Defense Systems to Saudi Arabia and the UAE

So this is how President Trump is getting the U.S. out of the Middle East quagmire---by sending more equipment and troops to the area.

The U.S. is preparing to deploy troops to the Middle East as a response to what officials have deemed an Iran-based attack on Saudi Arabian oil fields last week, Defense Secretary Mark Esper told reporters Friday in a Pentagon briefing.

If You Want to Know What the Masses Look Like....

Multiple updates below.

...check out those that are taking to the streets today to "for a day of global protest over climate change."

It is doubtful that anyone in the crowds understands the complex nature of climate. These people just ride the "in" fads. Though this is an extremely dangerous fad because the fad includes demands for laws and other regulations that will distort the economy based on weak scientific grounds. Not to mention that the Green New Deal is a socialist plan that goes well beyond "fighting global climate change."

Here is how you can show you stand independent and against crowd madness. Wear this:

This Not a Good Sign


Mark Zuckerberg was in the White House on Thursday.

Since there are reports that President Trump wants to use social media to "detect" those who should not be allowed to own guns, this meeting is downright scary.

From Vice in early August:

This is a Real Sick Copper

Back in July, Zachary Wester, a Jackson County, Florida cop, was caught planting drugs on multiple occasions during traffic stops. He has been arrested on felony charges after his own body camera revealed him planting drugs during traffic stops for at least a year.

 This is video is pretty incredible:

DISCOVERED: New Rothbard Lectures on American History


Murray Rothbard
By Chris Sciabarra
As Jerome Tuccille famously wrote: “It usually begins with Ayn Rand.”
For me, it began in my senior year of high school. I took a year-long “Advanced Placement” course (for college credit) that offered an in-depth survey of American history, from the colonial period to the modern era. My early political views, shaped by both relatives and influential teachers, always tended toward a pro-free market stance. Invariably, the contentious discussions I was having in class were shared at home with my family. One afternoon, after listening to my tirades concerning the current events of the day, my sister-in-law told me that she’d been reading a novel called Atlas Shrugged, and that a lot of what I was saying seemed to echo the themes in this book. When she showed it to me, I took one look at it and saw that it was more than a thousand pages and said: “I have homework. I’ve got no time for that! No way!”

It is only 10 days away!

The Block-Wenzel debate "Resolved: Humans Are Hardwired Against Freedom" will take place at the Chancellor Hotel at 433 Powell St. in the heart of the San Francisco shopping and dining district, so make a weekend of it.

Trump Names New National Security Advisor - Bolton Without The Mustache?

Robert O'Brien
Daniel McAdams, Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, writes: 
President Trump has named Robert O'Brien, who served as foreign affairs advisor to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, as his replacement for fired National Security Advisor John Bolton. O'Brien is cut from the exact same neoconservative cloth as Bolton and represents, at most, change in style and physical appearance. 
The New York Times appears to concur:

BREAKING: Jordan Peterson Film Cancelled in Canadian Movie Theatre






The Rise of Jordan Peterson, the feature-length film by Patricia Marcoccia has been removed from its scheduled, week-long run at the Carlton Cinema in Toronto after “one or more” staff complained, reports The Post Millennial.

Indications US Attack on Iran Coming

This doesn't look good to people who think the United States should not be meddling in the Middle East.

Multiple reports indicate that Saudi Arabia is claiming to be increasingly confident that Iran directly launched a complex missile and drone attack from its southwestern territory on Saturday that severely damaged some of the kingdom’s oil facilities.

Oh Yeah, Corey Lewandowski Has Some Fun in Washington D.C.

Oh, this is good.  I never realized Corey Lewandowski was this sharp.

Joey Rothbard and the Donkeys

Murray and Joey Rothbard
David Gordon writes today at LRC:
Today would have been Joey Rothbard’s 91st birthday. She was Murray Rothbard’s “indispensable framework. ” She was a scholar in her own right, but she devoted her life to helping Murray. She was a wonderful friend, and I miss her very much.
This brings to mind a story Justin Raimondo once told me.

Big Moves for Williamson and Gottfried

The Independent Institute has announced that education policy scholar Williamson M. Evers, Ph.D., has joined its staff as Director of Independent’s Center on Educational Excellence.

Evers joins the Independent Institute after over two decades as a Research Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.

Back in the day, Evers was very close to Murray Rothbard, although they moved in different circles in the latter years of Rothbard's life.

Also paleo-conservative Paul Gottfried, also a Rothbard friend, has assumed the position of publisher at Chronicles.

Will Trump "Bomb, Bomb, Bomb" Iran?

Multiple updates below. Tulsi Gabbard reacts.

By Robert Wenzel

This is getting mad and unfortunately predictable, global actors are playing with the US like a cat with a ball of yarn. The actors pull out a new colored ball of yarn every time they want the Empire to jump in a different direction.

Just a few days before President Trump was to hold a secret meeting with Taliban leaders at Camp David, a suicide car bomber in Afghanistan plowed into a group, killing 12 including a US serviceman, Sgt. 1st Class Elis A. Barreto Ortiz of the 82nd Airborne Division’s 3rd Brigade Combat Team.
