    I think it is too early to be handing out bouquets to Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Here
    is a man who says that his most important finding is that "war is just one damn thing
    after another," (Duh!), defends Private Manning, believes that war can be waged transparently and admits that the "Press can't funciton unless it gets new information."
    By "new information" he seems to mean ANY information, regardless of its effect on
    the safety and security of this country. And what about your good buddy Justin Rai- mondo of antiwar.com? Check these "antiwar" groups closely and you will usually
    find that they are NOT against war at all–unless the capitalist West is winning!

    Judge,
    this show is more like the internet version, but i think you have too many guests. it would be better to give a longer monologue with less guest so the issues can be discussed in more than a few minutes. my opinion for what its worth

    Did Justin Raimondo or antiwar.com object with equal vigor when the Soviet Union
    invaded Afghanistan? Or is it only when the (capitalist) U.S. does the "invading." And
    regarding judge Bolton's gutting of the Arizona law, Arizona's native population is only
    a little over 2 milion and they now have an illegal immigrant population aproaching
    500,000! They are being invaded while the U.S. government shirks its responsibility to
    protect the livesand proprty of its citizens. Arizona should have the right to ask ANY-
    ONE–white, black, brown, red, yellow or green–for "their papers." And you, judge act
    as if all is peachy-dandy so long as "Free Speech" and the Feds right to "regulate"
    immigration is not questioned! This is a farce! No wonder they bring their own flags!

    Judge, you sound as if you are more concerend with the Feds having the right to
    "regulate" immigration (which they utterly fail to do) than you are with the safety and welfare of U.S. citizens. Ever hear of the dirty bomb? Not only can it kill housands, it
    makes large areas uninhabitable for decades–and we don't even know who is cross-
    ing our borders! Lincoln was not wrong when he suspended habeus corpus during
    the Civil War and I don't care at all if I am asked for "my papers" when in Arizona! In
    fact, I would think that the government was finally doing something smart.. And re-
    garding Free Speech and our military, please stop sounding as if you can't wait to
    be appointed to head the Department of Politically Correct War.

    The government should just exercise competence. While I am not a fan of the prospects of presenting any papers to some government employee to verify my citizenship, I do think we should enforce various measures to prevent illegal immigration. These freeloaders should be required to leave the country or formally process for proper citizenship. Stop providing health care to illegals! Stop providing education to illegals! I have no interest in supporting these people given that they only pull from the “pot” rather than contribute to it. As for Assange, Cheers! I am glad to see individuals of integrity still left in this world. The government wants to wage an illegal war? Then the government can damn well tolerate individuals and organizations exposing the atrocities and failures of the governments occupation of Afghanistan. **You know we never really hear whats going on in Iraq anymore these days…** I hope the day comes soon… Give me Liberty! Or give me death… because this country is going to hell at present.

    George:

    You're wasting your time. People smart enough to watch the Judge are not going to be fooled by your government-loving, neocon-worshipping propaganda. Specifically:

    1) Assange and Bradley Manning are both heroes who are trying to make it possible for the American people to see what their government is doing that causes the rest of the world to hate America. Idiots like yourself, however, seem to believe that we can't handle the truth and it must therefore be kept from us by our "superiors" in the District of Corruption. This paternalistic mindset is the same as that used by men like Hitler and Stalin to justify their own censorship.

    2) Your insinuation that since he's opposed to American Empire, Raimondo must therefore hate capitalism or be some kind of secret supporter of Soviet Communism is beyond absurd. Justin Raimondo has a long history of opposition to not only war in general, but to the state as well. Furthermore, men like Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan are also strongly opposed to the Empire. Does that mean that they are also secret supporters of Soviet Communism?

    3) No government, federal or state, has the "right" to ask anyone for anything. Govenrments don't have rights; only people have rights. As for the people of Arizona, if they hate "illegal" immigrants so much, they have the right to refuse to hire them, or refuse to rent to them, or refuse to do business with them at all. What they do NOT have the right to do is to use the guns of the government to prohibit other, more open-minded citizens from choosing to do business with whomever they please, regardless of where they happened to be born.

    4) Abraham Lincoln was a brutal butcher who used anti-slavery rhetoric to justify countless acts of murder, theft, and tyranny. In fact, Lincoln hated black people and openly stated that they should all be rounded up and sent back to Africa! Anyone who doubts this should read the excellent books "The Real Lincoln" and "Lincoln Unmasked" by Thomas DiLorenzo. If more Americans today knew the truth about Dishonest Abe, perhaps he would finally be recognized as the villain that he was, rather than revered as the Great American Hero.

    I was pretty shocked at the lies about the Arizona law and it's enforcement RINO Connie Mack {R Florida] spewed on Freedom Watch with Judge Napolitano. You don't want illegals to provide ID, when I have to do that to fly, cash a check, drive, apply for a job, get medical care, etc etc.
    He also makes conclusions about Police activities he apparently know nothing about [ I'm a retired Police Detective]. What color is ilegal immigration? What color are criminals? I have a right to ask criminal suspects for information based on suspicion alone. I don;t even need prior suspicion like the Arizona law requires. [ any officer not wanting to enforce it does not have to by simply saying there was not sufficient suspicion to his mind. ] Shame on you. .
    Federal Law does require ALL ALIENS to carry ID, to provide it, and that they can be stopped for ANY REASON, including the color of their skin. . If you don;t like the law, that is fine. Don't falsely accuse the police of things that are not true, relevant, or realistic. I generally agree with you, but you are off on this one.

    Actually, We The People should just exercise competence — for We The People are the "4th branch of government" — it is OUR JOB to change government when it is outside the bounds of liberty and the Constitution…

    I was disappointed with the judge for misrepresenting the Arizona law when he said police can detain people because of the color of their skin. This has never been true. The law is less intrusive than the federal law.

    Freedom Watch used to be a pure show driven by the principle of freedom. Why now this "debate" format, where one gets to hear such specimens as Gasparino? Doesn't the Judge see that he is of the same material as the gang in government? I really hope this is the first and the last time that he appears on this show. Otherwise, its reputation comes into question.

    the reason there is a debate format is because thats what the network wants. they think it increases ratings to have two people argue with each other. i agree. its not working.

    Love the show. Thanks for giving Mr Assange a long segment. I would like to see longer more in depth segments where individuals get a chance to explain their thinking.

    Julian Assange is my Hero. It’s sad when Amerikans accept whatever wars the government says they should pay for without doing due diligence. Perhaps JFK shouldn’t of stuck his neck out for Amerikans.

    You're right. The debate format doesn't work. That's because there simply isn't enough time to debate issues in any depth, especially with so many guests appearing each week. And let's not forget that the Internet show was a full hour long, but the TV version only lasts about 45 minutes, after taking out the commercials. So there's even less time to get into the meat of any single issue.

    I wish the judge could go back to the more lengthy internet format but I guess some things just cannot be done what with the limitations of television.. :-/

    Judge,
    Best show yet. Content reminded me of the internet version (Get rid of the fed segment and wikileaks). However, the debate format is worthless. The socialists get too much air time as it is. Maybe do a show for the masses on TV with the debate and a show to expand on the same topics during the week from the freedom view on the internet. You already have the freedom guest talking. They could expand on the freedom view and detail why their opponent is wrong. Thank you for your efforts!!!!!!

    What a horrible show it was. Julian Ass -ange is a vile Leftist jihad enabler crackpot who should be arrested the minuet he sets foot on US soil. As if Ass -ange wasn’t bad enough the judge brought on the show the twisted Justin Raimondo from Anti-America.com who went on with his usual repulsive stew of lies, smears, and juvenile twittery.

    @ J. Galt, and you aren't a juvenile twit with your "Julian Ass-ange." As for me, I side with the majority of intelligent folks that applaud the idea of a Mr. Assange's Wikileaks exposing the military-industrial-complex for the immoral Godless entity that it is. I pray the day comes before the dollar collapses when young Americans stop joining because they realize that an offensive military makes the US less secure. No doubt Wayne Simmons loves the smell of napalm in the morning, especially when it's been dropped by drone bombers on the school yards of Afghani children.

    I know that since I was 16 yrs old, (now 45) that if I was pulled over, or asked for ID by LE, if I didn't show "my papers", in the form of a valid driver's license, I would be hauled off to jail. Just because they have a document of "paper", doesn't mean they shouldn't be required to show them. So it says Cert of Naturalization, does that mean a US state DL can be given to anyone regardless of citizenship?

    I loved this show because it wasn't polluted with the views of lying, neocon, bloodthirsty, warmongering, warfare-state, civil liberty hating cowards and marxist, liberal, morally inconsistent, welfare-state, economic liberty hating thieves. We see enough of that in EVERY other news show.
