I was on Jack Thompson's Political Badger for a half-hour interview that covered events of the last few weeks in Ferguson, Missouri, police reform, the role of too many laws in police violence, as well as foreign policy and national security issues, reviewing the growth of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Russian aggression in Ukraine, and what constitutes a threat to national security.

You can listen to the whole thing here.

  1. Reviewing the growth of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)

    Look, if you war mongers in the US federal government and the media want to stir up more war mongering sentiment from the sheeples, as it has been apparent is happening lately with all the polls and pundit talk, then you are going to have to drop this silly sounding ISIL and stick with ISIS.

    ISIL sounds like it might be some sort of women’t baking club, but ISIS sounds really scary, you know dreadful like and EVUL! Just that name difference could mean a rise or drop of 15% in those valuable war mongering polls.

    1. Well ISIL is run by a woman, Mary Ruwart, but I think her claim to fame is not baking cookies.

  2. Oy…I read the headline and thought you were talking about police reform in Ferguson because they had to worry about ISIL and the Ukrainians were working with the Mexican drug cartels.
