Shocking stories exposing the rampant corruption within the Federal Bureau of Investigation have emerged week after week, but few have permeated into the highest level of public discussion. With the recent revelation that the FBI uncovered bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering related to the Obama Administration’s Russian Uranium deal – the hypocrisy of the leftist “Russian Narrative” has been further exposed.
In the aftermath of the Las Vegas Shooting, the calls for gun control, increased regulations and the repeal of the second amendment were loud and vociferous. Bill Whittle joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss common misconceptions related to gun violence, how to know if somebody is willing to have an honest conversation about gun control and the true purpose of the second amendment.
After it was determined that the Las Vegas coward used bump fire stocks on his rifles to murder innocent Americans, the media proceeded to muddy the water in terms of putting out very inaccurate data regarding the specifics of bump fire stocks and how they are or aren’t related to fully automatic rifles.
This video is not intended to defend nor to degrade owners of bump fire units. (Except the Las Vegas shooter. He is an A-hole.) It is simply meant to educate people on what a bump fire device is and how it works. It’s also meant to dispel the myth that a bump fire stock transforms an AR-15 into a super weapon. The bump fire is no magic pill or silver bullet.
NOTE: Modifying a legal rifle with a bump fire system is legal to do, to own, and to shoot. It does not create a fully automatic rifle by definition, its action, or by the ATF’s ruling.
As many in the news media continue to get it wrong, we continue to try to spread truth. An AR-15 modified to fire with a bump fire stock is not and never is considered a fully automatic rifle per the BATFE.
With President Donald Trump’s approval, Speaker Paul Ryan has formed a task force to create legislation to grant amnesty to those impacted by the unconstitutional era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) program. Congressman Steve King joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss how President Trump’s actions have strayed from his campaign promises, the immense danger of amnesty, the importance of culture and the demographic future of the United States of America.
Congressman Steve King was elected to Congress in 2002 and currently represents Iowa’s Fourth Congressional District. Rep. King serves on many committees – including the Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee.
On May 11, 2011, then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reintroduced the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors [DREAM] Act into the Senate. The DREAM Act would have given conditional residency and more to non-adult illegal immigrants – but it failed to pass. On June 15, 2012, President Barack Obama announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] – an executive order which bypassed lawmakers and offered similar legal status to an estimated 1.7 million illegal immigrants.
In June 2017, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and others announced plans to challenge DACA in court if the Trump administration has not agreed to phase out the program by September 5th, 2017. On September 5, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that DACA was being repealed – and that implementation will be suspended for six months.

Pathway to Citizenship?

Larger vs. Smaller Government
The DREAM Act was originally introduced [and actually passed the House] in 2001 and different versions of the bill have been regularly reintroduced in the Senate and House.
This heavily pushed amnesty bill would legalize illegal aliens brought – or claiming to be brought – to the United States as minors and provide them with a path to permanent legal status. A path to outright citizenship is also being discussed.
The DREAM Act very different from DACA – and pro-amnesty sophists purposefully conflate the two for propaganda purposes.
There are two active versions of the DREAM Act right now – one in the Senate and another in the House. While very similar in language, they contain different criteria for eligibility.
According to the most recent numbers, approximately 690,000 illegal aliens are protected under DACA. Another 100,000 or so qualified for DACA previously, but failed to renew, were deported due to criminal activity or used an immigration law loophole to gain a green card. How do these numbers compare to what is proposed under the DREAM Act?

With instances of deplatfoming and internet censorship on the rise, Stefan Molyneux looks at the origin of what drives such behavior and the foundational weakness displayed by those who are unable to tolerate different perspectives.
While many people point to specific problems in society and demand they be addressed – the failure to understand how and why incentives run the world prevents true progress from being made.
One of the most important discussions taking place in the world today relates to human inequality. While many people view outcome inequality as a problem in need of solving, others strive to increase the equality of opportunity instead. Stefan Molyneux breaks down the struggle between equality of outcome and equality of opportunity.
