  • Panetta Expects Iraq to Extend U.S. Presence

    The Wall Street Journal reports that the U.S. government will extend military presence in Iraq, almost a year after Rachel Maddow declared the war’s end: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta voiced confidence Friday that Iraq would agree to some continued U.S. military presence beyond the official American withdrawal at the end of the year. Mr. Panetta …

  • Rachel Maddow and Nullification…

    Rachel Maddow is a curious brand.  She often lets her interview guests speak uninterrupted in a manner rare for television and is by far one of the most leftist talking heads around these days, but she rarely seems to be more interested in principle than partisan hackery.  In her worldview, if it’s Right, it’s wrong. …

  • Announcing the Winning on Principle Newsletter

    Just as Jeff recently reprinted from the first edition of Young American Revolution, we recognize that political success is only honorable if we stand for principle, and that liberty will only prevail if we win politically.  To embody this axiom, the mission of Young Americans for Liberty is to train, educate, and mobilize youth activists committed …

  • The Ongoing Revolution and Rand Paul

    While it’s hard not to agree with Milton Friedman and Preston, it would be an act of wanton neglect not to comment on the revolution and counter-revolution at hand and the trivial sideshows anti-liberty statists (redundant) are creating.  I say “revolution” because we are in the midst of the the Obama Revolution, which is but …

  • In May, Obama proposed indefinite preventative detention. What happened?

    Rachel Maddow is obviously not great on everything, but in this video she gives a sweet monologue the “indefinite preventive detention” Obama proposed in May.  What exactly does this detention mean in practice?  Maddow explains it well, but here’s another example of how it could work: Imagine you are picked up off the street for …

  • Ron Paul Still Making the MSM Rounds

    He does a solid job  in this interview of addressing some legitimate criticisms of the “Tea party movement” (and some frivolous snark from RINO Lindsey Graham) as well as promoting the broader libertarian philospophy. After watching Ron Paul do so many interviews, it should become apparent to anyone that he is simply a sweatheart.  As ridiculous and/or …

  • Ron Paul on the Rachel Maddow Show 5/5/09

    This is an excellent interview with Dr. Paul from Tuesday’s Rachel Maddow Show.  Though Congressman Paul isn’t the most articulate or charismatic politician, there are times when he hits a home run, and this was one of those times.  It also helps that Ms. Maddow allowed him to speak and finish his thoughts instead of …
