Conspiracy 3/20: Russia Responds

Nuclear war must remain unthinkable By Mark Luedtke Thank Putin. Again. Just a couple of years ago Russian President Putin saved President Obama from outright invading Syria à la Iraq, a move that would have killed many more Americans and Syrians than are already dying in that undeclared and unconstitutional war. Putin recently announced the […]

Conspiracy 3/13: Doing Evil

Google’s Creepy Censorship By Mark Luedtke In order for a republic to work, the people must be educated and informed. The free exchange of ideas, even unpopular ones, is also required. Rulers, because they lie, cheat, steal, and kill for a living, can’t survive those things. That’s why they use government’s power of coercion to […]

Conspiracy Theorist 3/6: Don’t Cry for the FBI

Watchers hate being watched By Mark Luedtke The good news is Americans are losing faith in the FBI following two recent scandals. The Strzok texts, the FISA court memo, and the Nunes memo exposed FBI malfeasance before and after the 2016 election. The FBI purposely and corruptly exonerated Hillary Clinton for her crimes while lying […]

Conspiracy 2/27: Ban socialism not guns

Leftists don’t want safe schools By Mark Luedtke I’m sick of thoughts and prayers too. After every mass killing, whether the perpetrator uses knives, poison, bombs, or guns, rulers respond by saying something like “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims.” Leftists politicize mass murders with calls for gun control before the bodies […]

Conspiracy 2/20: The Bust is Coming

Bust stories overtaking boom stories By Mark Luedtke Boom-bust cycles are caused by an artificial increase in credit. When interest rates are held artificially low, like the Federal Reserve (Fed) has done not only since 2008, but since the 1970s, it confuses entrepreneurs into believing more real resources have been saved and can be borrowed […]

Conspiracy: 2/13

No Good Samaritans The battle for Good Sam isn’t over By Mark Luedtke Everybody has heard the news: Premier Health is closing Good Samaritan Hospital. It’s the talk of the town. In a peaceful society, one ordered by property rights, that would be the end of the story. But we don’t live in a peaceful […]

The Next US War Situation may lead to action against NATO ally Turkey By Mark Luedtke Turks, Syrians, Kurds, and Americans. One of these things is not like the others. If you picked Americans, you’re right. The Turks, Syrians, and Kurds control territory that overlaps in the Levant. They share history, cooperation, and conflict that […]

Conspiracy Theorist: 1/30

I’m sure you noticed the recent kerfuffle about President Trump supposedly calling certain chronically poverty-stricken countries a bad name. Propagandists jumped on the story like starving Venezuelans on a stray dog. Whether he said it or not, it was fake news. Whenever some worthless story like that takes over the news, our rulers are doing […]

Flu-mageddon Bad flu meets government vaccine By Mark Luedtke Government is making Americans dumber. My parents and grandparents knew government was bad for your health. The common wisdom about government was a joke: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” There was no punchline. That was the whole joke. It’s funny because government […]

Hey, Republicans Spending is the problem By Mark Luedtke I’m sick of hearing about the Republican tax cuts. Granted, cutting the business rate from 35 percent to 21 percent is good. Lower taxes are always better. Competition will force companies to lower their prices. Some companies, which fled overseas to avoid high US taxes, will […]

It’s freezing again But that doesn’t stop global warming frauds By Mark Luedtke It seems like we’ve set records for cold the last dozen winters. This deep freeze gripping the country as I write continues the trend. An unbiased observer must consider the climate is cooling, not warming. Real scientists predicted global cooling years ago […]

Flipped script Mueller’s investigation of Trump is under attack By Mark Luedtke Two months ago, special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s assault on team Trump’s fake pre-election collusion with Russia looked like an unstoppable juggernaut. Mueller stacked his team with Clinton supporters and loyalists, and anybody who wanted to oust President Trump. Everybody in power, the press, […]

Perpetual war Institutionalized mass murder all around the world By Mark Luedtke   Many people would say war is the worst thing in the world, but there’s one thing worse: perpetual war. US rulers have not officially waged war since invading Afghanistan in 2001, but if you count South America, Somalia, and other unofficial, undeclared, […]

ICBM launch North Korea tests another missile By Mark Luedtke   The situation with North Korea keeps getting worse, but we only hear half the story. Back in September the New York Times reported on Kim Jong Un’s latest nuclear test. “The underground blast was by far North Korea’s most powerful ever. Though it was […]

Hurricane aftermath The wrong lessons learned By Mark Luedtke   Hurricane season ended Dec. 1. after three major hurricanes devastated Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. Every year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), to promote the great global warming fraud, predicts a higher than normal hurricane season. For the first time since 2005, NOAA […]
