The United States of America has an illustrious history in large part due to a free market economy. So why is it that when we prop up a government in another country, we make sure it is some type of single-crop dictatorship? Hodey Johns and Rhinehold explore how Honduras went from a fertile land of plenty to the most deadly place on earth thanks to your tax dollars.
Sarah Brady Wagner and Rhinehold discuss President Trump’s recent comments on ending birthright citizenship. What is it and how does his idea jive with the 14th Amendment?

Chris Spangle warned months ago that Alex Jones was the canary in the coal mine and that mainstream libertarian voices would be next. Today, Liberty Memes was banned. He discusses the ramifications. Since Facebook says they are cracking down on “inauthentic voices,” we replay our interview with the admins of this Facebook page. Neither are Russians. Neither are dangerous.
