Much to the chagrin of Paul and other civil libertarians, Section 702 was reauthorized in 2012 with no changes occurring to the FISA Amendments Act. “We’ll do anything we can to try and… Keep Reading

New WikiLeaks #Vault7 Disclosures Shatter Claims Of Russian Interference In Presidential Election

Julian Assange and Wikileaks are continuing their dump of #Vault7 documents, a treasure trove of information that is displaying the true hacking capabilities of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Antifa sympathizer Jeffrey Tucker has really taken it on the chin this time. Despite being a self-professed anarchist, Tucker clearly likes his state deep. Wikileaks’ Vault 7 disclosures have made Tucker’s already indefensible position regarding the deep state look even more abhorrent. In a recent Daily Caller article, Tucker lamented the rise of Trump and floated the idea that the deep state might be better than the Trump administration. The shattering of the neoliberal consensus on global trade seemed to be his primary lament: “As much as we might hate the deep state…and I’ve written plenty against it…, we would… Keep Reading
