The Empire Strikes Back: Soldiering and Brain Injury
The Libertarian Institute Blog
by Bill Buppert
19h ago
Whatever empires do abroad eventually comes home. Yet another unintended consequences come home in a tidal wave. This is personal; I was diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury in 2019. I spent nearly a quarter century in the US military. I know there’s a connection. This isn’t isolated to the military, concussion in amateur and professional sports is real along with a number of blue collar jobs. The downstream effects of so many soldier deployed overseas in combat theaters for the first two decades of the 21st century will resonate through American society for generations and even on the margi ..read more

US Surface Navy is No Longer a Global Force
The Libertarian Institute Blog
by Bill Buppert
1d ago
The US Navy may credibly dominate the Atlantic but the Pacific Ocean is no longer an exclusive US naval domination calculus. The Arctic is still dominated by the Russians and will remain so. The US Navy’s ability to build functioning surface ships is compromised beyond repair due to a lack of proper planning, enormous maintenance backlogs, and global “commitments” taking the remaining surface fleet endlessly steaming circles in hulls with limited lifespans. Do hulls have an expiration date? Yes, they do hence the Navy retiring all 22 remaining cruisers in the fleet by 2027. Not to mention the ..read more

US Government Teachers: The Overseas Army of Marxian Educators
The Libertarian Institute Blog
by Bill Buppert
1w ago
When I was active duty and deployed overseas, we thankfully home educated our children because the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) is just as rancid and immoral as the government schools in CONUS. They lied, the DoDEA did not cancel their IED propaganda in the DoD schools. They shifted the funding to a less visible place. As you can imagine, it may be even worse than the NEA/AFT Marxist madrassas that soil the landscape of America in government schooling. The DoDEA refuses to disclose the individual salaries of its staff, unlike government schools nationwide and almost every ..read more

Interview: Julian Assange Freed + Palestine’s Ancient History
The Libertarian Institute Blog
by Jeremy R. Hammond
1w ago
I recently joined Mike Leavitt again on his show And If Love Remains, this time to discuss the release of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from prison as well as my new free e-book (and audiobook) A Brief History of Palestine: From Canaan through the Mandate Era. Bullet-Point Summary Topics we discussed include: How Julian Assange was long persecuted by the US government for exposing its criminal activities. Why Assange’s release from prison is fantastic news, although the downside remains that the US government has effectively criminalized the practice of journalism. How WikiLeaks’ rol ..read more

They Will Want Boys and Men again… Anti-War Blog
The Libertarian Institute Blog
by Kym Robinson
1w ago
The war pigs mount one another in squeals calling for blood as the drums of death beat to their cries. They want your boys and men…again. As war looms and imperial ambitions swell, the non-binary, obese, depressed, expecting mothers (or baby carrying persons) and furies never swelled to the recruitment centres, despite expensive advertisement campaigns. That was for the sort of peaceful times, the progressive facade of corporate government. Technology is not quiet there for the machines to operate themselves or a full force of distant controllers manipulating drones. Meat in uniforms and men i ..read more

Military Education and the Zampolit Parade Through the Institutions
The Libertarian Institute Blog
by Bill Buppert
1w ago
The professional military education systems and the academies have been captured by the Inclusion, Equity and Diversity (IED) zampolit cadres in a detailed and comprehensive way. In the military a zampolit is a political commissar or political officer (or politruk, a portmanteau word from Russian; translated as a political leader or political instructor); a supervisory officer responsible for the political education (ideology) and organization of the unit to which they are assigned, with the intention of ensuring political control of the military. The report below is filled with citations and ..read more

Boeing, Boeing, Gone

There is nothing new here but the corruption is deep at Boeing: “It comes after an unnamed parts supplier uncovered small holes in the material from corrosion, The New York Slimes reported. The FAA is looking into both the long and short-term implications for the aircraft equipped with the faulty parts. It’s not clear how many planes have used components made from the fake titanium.” Metal behaves differently at altitude and underwater.   Fake metallurgy. No maintenance workers at the airline that received these fake airplanes verified and validated metallurgy.   The cha ..read more

Regime Apologists Continue to Insist the Carrier is Useful
The Libertarian Institute Blog
by Bill Buppert
1w ago
They misspelled disposable.   There is nothing hard to target about a very large ship traveling at very large ship speeds with very large wakes in the modern era by air breathing and non-air breathing detection assets. What this means is that all the carriers deployed (you’d be fortunate to get four of the eleven US carriers underway at once due to refitting and refueling maintenance cadence) can’t get near contested coastlines of sophisticated militaries like Russia and China but then again the Houthis in Yemen recently chased off a carrier battle group out of the Red Sea with no Na ..read more
