Tulsi Gabbard is a socialist, and no libertarian would support her, so stop inviting me to events for her. What’s in the News with stories on drug war good news times two, bad boys times two, and heroes times two. Finally, an Ask Me Anything where I answer your questions on prostitution decriminalization, voluntarily funded public schools, what podcasts I listen to, Game of Thrones predictions, and eating endangered species.

This episode is brought to you by Health Excellence Plus, a health share that has saved my family thousands of dollars, and can save you money too. Also, brought to you by ForkFest, the third annual decentralized libertarian camping event that happens right before PorcFest, with no tickets and no one in charge.

WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

I knew that as soon as Ron Paul talked positively about Tulsi Gabbard, we would see supposed libertarians coming out of the woodwork in support of her. And, I’ll be goddamned if I wasn’t right.

WHAT’S IN THE NEWS

In drug war news, Denver fired a shot across the bow at the drug war by decriminalizing psychedelic mushrooms by approving a ballot measure on the issue.

In more drug war news, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker says he’s reached an agreement with key lawmakers on a plan to legalize recreational marijuana in the state starting next year.

In bad boys news, a suburban St. Louis police officer who says she meant to use her stun gun but mistakenly grabbed her service revolver was indicted on a second-degree assault charge for shooting a suspected shoplifter outside a grocery store.

In more bad boys news, a 69-year-old great-grandmother whose doctor suggested she use CBD oil to alleviate pain was arrested for carrying it at Disney World during a trip she and her family had planned for two years.

In heroes news, we have a new hero to thank. Daniel Everette Hale, 31, of Nashville, a former Air Force intelligence officer, has been arrested and charged with espionage for leaking information to the press detailing how the U.S. government uses armed drones for secret assassination missions in foreign countries.

In more heroes news, Chelsea Manning was allowed to leave the federal detention center in Virginia. She had been held there since early March in an attempt to compel her testimony to a grand jury about Manning’s 2010 release of a huge cache of government documents to WikiLeaks.

Also, Swedish prosecutors have reopened an investigation into a rape allegation made against Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange in 2010.
