Unfortunately, no single news source tells the whole truth, so I have been forced to use articles from libertarian and leftist sources to get to the truth. I urge readers to go through the articles, read them for yourselves and come to your own conclusions. I am presenting stuff you can’t get in mainstream news here at my blog.

  • Three Ways the Coronavirus Is Benefitting Political Decentralization
    The coronavirus pandemic, and resulting government response, has created one of the greatest disruptions to daily life in modern American history. With much of the country now focused on “reopening,” pundits and policymakers have focused their attention on what the “new normal” of a post-COVID America looks like. Although much of the attention has been […]
  • Danny Makki to the ‘Dark Side’? Joins Charles Lister At Middle East Institute
    Sun Tzu, or if you prefer Al Pacino as Michael Corleone in “The Godfather” gave the wise advice: Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer. There’s much more going on under the surface than meets the eye regarding Danny Makki’s joining the Middle East Institute’s Syria Program as a non-resident fellow. Of course, the […]
  • TGIF: Replace Your Divots
    I am not, nor have I ever been, a golfer. I did golf once, just before the turn of the century, and I disliked it. Nevertheless, I live by a cardinal principle in golfer etiquette: Replace your divots. A divot, of course, is a chunk of turf that is dislodged by a golf shot, leaving […]
  • Do Lockdowns Save Lives?
    Appearances are of four (4) kinds: Things are as they appear to be; Things neither are nor appear to be; Things are, but do not appear to be; Things are not, but yet appear to be.      ~ Epictetus, Phrygian Philosopher Despite what seems to me incontrovertible data that lockdowns not only did not help, […]
  • New York Times Hurts Survivors With Falsehoods About Domestic Violence
    The dominant narrative on domestic violence (DV) during COVID-19 hurts survivors, like me. Decades ago, I was blinded in my left eye by a man who said he loved me even as his fist hit my face. I’ve tried to make sense of that insanity ever since. Why did he do it? Why did I […]
  • Pennsylvanians Pushback Against Overbearing Coronavirus Lockdown
    As in the rest of the country, life in Pennsylvania has been greatly disturbed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the chaos that has resulted from the state government’s attempts to handle the situation. On March 16, Governor Wolf ordered that all “nonessential” businesses be closed for at least two weeks. They are still closed today, and as a […]
  • Federal Regulations Are Obstructing Development of Coronavirus Tests
    With inconsistent rules getting in the way of COVID testing, America’s dysfunctional regulatory system has made it more difficult for America to cope with the Coronavirus. While laboratories face the nearly impossible task of complying with two different sets of regulations, shady companies with little real expertise are selling kits that don’t actually test for the Coronavirus. […]
  • The Statist Origins of Modern Health Insurance
    With roughly 36 million people having filed for unemployment across the country in the last two months in the wake of the coronavirus shutdown, one issue receiving more scrutiny from some quarters is the issue of employer-based health insurance. With so many laid off temporarily or permanently out of work, there is increasing concern about […]
  • When the Government’s ‘Cure’ Aids the Disease
    Remember all of the government bailouts and stimulus in response to the 2008 financial crisis? Conservatives threw a fit. The Tea Party movement grew out of worry about the impact of all of the stimulus, money-printing, and the taxes they knew were coming down the pike. My, how things have changed in 12 short years—and […]
  • How Members Of ‘Gun Culture’ View The Ahmaud Arbery Killing
    There has been another controversial shooting of an unarmed man. The Ahmaud Arbery case is currently being litigated on social media by the usual suspects who plan on using this to further their “pet” agenda. Whether it be the “law and order” crowd who have their statistics at the ready to copy and paste, or the “race-baiters” […]
  • It Only Gets Worse From Here
    How bad is it? That is the question on everyone’s mind as we come to grips with the economic carnage caused by global economic shutdowns, supply chain disruptions, and ongoing quarantines of million of people. Do we face another Great Depression, or simply a deep recession more like 2008? And equally important, are soft Americans prepared for either? […]
  • How New York Turned Nursing Homes Into ‘Slaughter Houses’
    At an April 23 press conference, Gov. Andrew Cuomo sounded indignant when a reporter asked if anyone had objected to New York’s policy of forcing nursing homes to admit recently discharged COVID-19 patients. “They don’t have the right to object,” Cuomo answered before the reporter finished his question. “That is the rule, and that is the regulation, […]
  • Donald Trump Is Complicit in a Catastrophe for Christians
    While the world is busy fighting COVID-19, Israeli political parties have reached a government coalition agreement. Benjamin Netanyahu has succeeded in bringing annexation of occupied Palestinian territory to the table, setting a provisional timeframe—less than two months from now. He can thank the Trump plan for the confidence to push annexation so hard and so […]
  • Twin Pillars of Russiagate Crumble
    New House Documents Sow Further Doubt That Russia Hacked the DNC House Intelligence Committee documents released Thursday reveal that the committee was told two and half years ago that the FBI had no concrete evidence that Russia hacked Democratic National Committee computers to filch the DNC emails published by WikiLeaks in July 2016. The until-now-buried, […]
  • No Evidence That Domestic Violence Is Rising Due To COVID-19
    A media blitz declares domestic violence (DV) is soaring during COVID-19 because stay-at-home orders have trapped women and children in close proximity to abusive men. Flawed evidence and assumptions underlie this claim but, with the panic of the crisis, it could be embedded in public policy, nevertheless. A headline in Vice presents the perceived problem: […]
  • Supreme Court Rules Against Fourth Amendment
    The Supreme Court handed down another opinion eroding the Fourth Amendment in a case that should have never gone to the federal court. Kansas v. Glover revolves around a traffic stop by Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Mehrer. He pulled Charles Glover over after running his license plate and finding that Glover had a suspended driver’s […]
  • What Did Society Benefit By Social Distancing?
    “To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.”- Pierre-Joseph Proudhon Despite the fact that there has already been ample writing, both in the mainstream […]
  • America Should Be Done With Afghanistan
    The Trump administration is edging America toward the exit in Afghanistan, nearly two decades after President George W. Bush intervened in the aftermath of 9/11. The U.S. quickly dispersed Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda and ousted the Taliban, only to spend the following years failing to build a stable, liberal democracy centered in Kabul. America’s extended […]
  • Foreign Aid Can’t Fix Bad Economics
    Some myths in politics die hard. We are constantly reminded by the managerial classes that foreign aid is crucial to lifting the developing world out of poverty. With the magic wand of public spending, money is sent to the developing world in hopes of pushing these countries out of their economic stupor. We’ve seen this story […]
  • Using Bad Math, Media Claims No State Has Met the Reopening Guidelines on New Cases
    As the debate over lifting the lockdowns in the US intensifies, key data points on testing and infections are routinely mischaracterized. Consider this summary from Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday on May 3: As we said, about half the states — more than half the states have started in some way, shape, or form, […]
  • 50 Years Of Unhinged, Televised Presidential Warmongering
    Fifty years ago, President Richard Nixon popped up on national television on a Thursday night to proudly announce that he invaded Cambodia. At that time, Nixon was selling himself as a peacemaker, promising to withdraw U.S. troops from the Vietnam War. But after the sixth time that Nixon watched the movie “Patton,” he was overwhelmed […]
  • Coronavirus Lockdown: The Political Versus The Voluntary
    The government lockdown is mandatory. Re-opening is not. The contrast is stark and worth exploring as it underscores the difference between political and voluntary means of organizing society. Most states have imposed mandatory “stay at home” or “shelter in place” orders, confining citizens to house arrest, save for ‘essential’ purposes like buying food or prescription […]
  • Israel Expected to Seek Double U.S. Aid, Early Delivery of Funds
    With the coronavirus pandemic putting the US in potential economic crisis, Israeli officials are keen to get as much military aid out of the Americans, and as quickly, as they can. The requests seek the aid delivery well ahead of schedule, and potentially double the agreed amount. Israel is expected to present this as their own coronavirus-related need, […]
  • The Salafist Roots of the Syrian Uprising
    In the mainstream view, the Syrian conflict began in the Spring of 2011 with a period of peaceful, pro-democracy protests, which were then brutally suppressed by the Assad regime. As the liberal-left Intercept describes it, “Syrian civilians rose up to demand political reform. That protest movement soon turned into open revolution after government forces met […]
  • This Bust Wasn’t Caused by a Virus
    On February 10 the stock markets were at all-time highs, with the Dow 30 at almost 30,000. The unemployment rate was at an all-time low and interest rates around most of the world were at all-time lows. With interest rates near zero for an entire decade, the value of stocks, bonds, real estate, land, and virtually […]
  • The Heroes And the Statistics
    Recently in the Australian state of Victoria, four police officers died in a tragic crash.They will forever be mourned. As police officers, by default in death, they are heroes. The news finds a moment to report on the event with sorrow. They are human beings, sons, brothers, a sister, a daughter, mates. Their uniform and […]
  • Duncan Lemp’s Parents Threatened With Jail For Protesting His Killing
    It has been six weeks since a SWAT team shot and killed 21-year-old Duncan Lemp in a 4:30 a.m. raid at his family’s home in Potomac, Maryland, an affluent and sedate suburb of Washington, D.C. Montgomery County Police have thus far refused to provide any evidence on how or why they killed Lemp. But a […]
  • Three Friends And Their Divergent Paths In Life
    This recollection is based on a true story. There were three friends, each were a little different to the other. As young boys the three began to mature into different people; John was lazy and he grew rounder as the others began to grow broad shoulders. While they played sport he would watch and criticize […]
  • This Market Never Closes
    It is perfectly fine to be afraid that you or a loved one will catch a potentially life-threatening virus, and at the same time deride the government’s reaction, especially when it comes to shutting down a significant portion of the economy. That section consists of mostly the service sector, but even then, the government has chosen […]
  • The Oklahoma City Bombing Archives: An Introduction & Recommended Reading List
    When I began compiling material for what eventually became “The Oklahoma City Bombing Archives,” I was simply doing background research for a book. Over a period of several years I used commercial databases, libraries, and services that allowed me to scan newspaper and magazine reports, transcripts, and other sources for relevant material. In addition to […]
  • If Face Masks Are Mandatory, Then It’s Time to End Mask Patents
    President Trump is convening with governors to reopen the economy, which will likely mean some sort of compulsory face mask order. Now is the time to seriously consider scrapping the patents on masks such as the N95. Government at all levels has severely overreacted to the COVID-19 pandemic, but at long last there is political will […]
  • We Don’t Need a Cure to Reopen
    Back on March 19th, 2020, I pointed to this piece by Pierre-Olivier Gourinchas at my blog – Coordination Problem — where he states very clearly the reality constraint in public policy deliberations in the current coronavirus crisis. Without committing one way or another on the debate over the epidemiology models being used, I thought, and still think, this way […]
  • Essential, Yet Illegal?
    The U.S. federal government does a bunch of things that mystify me. They cannot discriminate in conferring benefits based on race, oh, unless it is affirmative action. Government agents cannot search you or your home without first earning a warrant, unless they think they should. I’ve even accepted there is alternative truths: you can keep […]
  • Big Tech Firmly Embedded in the War State, DoD Report Shows
    The Department of Defense inspector general has released a damning report on the DoD’s massive “JEDI” cloud computing project, exposing a revolving door between Amazon and the Pentagon. The DoD’s September 2017 announcement of JEDI (a catchy acronym for Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure) sparked a frenzy in the US tech sector, with the country’s largest […]
  • Pandemic Hospital Layoffs Reveal the Prevalence of Wasteful Healthcare Spending
    Aside from a few hotspots like New York City or Detroit, hospitals across the country are at such low capacities that many are laying off staff and seeing their bottom lines threatened during the current coronavirus pandemic. For instance, in my home state of North Carolina it was reported “After hospitals and doctor’s offices across […]
  • Joint Law Enforcement Task Forces are Creating a National Police State
    Through the proliferation of joint law enforcement task forces, the federal government is creating a national police force that operates in a legal twilight zone with little or no oversight. Law enforcement officers from various state, local and federal law enforcement agencies make up these joint task forces. The concept evolved out of the unconstitutional […]
  • TGIF: Is Self-reliance a Libertarian Ideal?
    An Associated Press article published a few days ago reported on disagreements among libertarians over what, if anything, the government may properly do about the coronavirus pandemic. My purpose here is not to comment on the quotes from the various libertarians. I prefer to focus on just one sentence by the author, Hillel Italie. It’s […]
  • Central Banks around the World Embrace Unprecedented ‘Quantitative Easing’
    It feels like it’s been months, but it’s only been a few weeks since the world’s central banks started forcing down their key interest rates to historical lows around the world. In those places where rates weren’t reduced, the central banks have adopted vast quantitative easing plans. In some places, central banks have both reduced […]
  • Lock Out Below! Lockdown Economy Plunging
    Mike Shedlock crystallized the Lockdown Nation catastrophe at hand by focusing on the unemployment claims numbers for Michigan Wednesday morning. And it doesn’t get any more transparent than a staggering 25% of the state’s work force already having filed unemployment insurance claims under the existing Federal/State UI program—only to have its computers crash and burn […]
  • Reform Title IX Now
    The Department of Education’s (DOE) reform of Title IX — the law that bans discrimination based on sex at federally-funded schools — has been a long time coming. For three Senators, it has not been long enough. They strenuously object to the impact on how colleges handle accusations of sexual misconduct. No longer will an […]
  • How Agorism Evolves Past The State
    Agorism, in all its various forms, promotes self-reliance and independent entrepreneurial ventures. It is a process that is evolving past the State and making it obsolete. We cannot disregard the State completely; we have no illusions about this. But evolving past the State is very much in our power. Today agorism is rapidly growing and […]
  • Finding Accountability for Captain Crozier
    There is a sickness in the United States Navy, and it goes beyond the coronavirus pandemic. It’s a disorder of irresponsible political leadership, and a high command more focused on expediency than maintaining the confidence of the sailors in their care.  The latest symptom of this disease was the abrupt dismissal of Captain Brett Crozier, […]
  • New Lawsuit Asks Whether State Agents Can Trespass and Place Cameras on Private Land in Tennessee
    Camden, Tenn.—Terry Rainwaters lives, farms and hunts on the 136 acres he owns along the Big Sandy River in rural Tennessee. It’s clear that the farm is private property, with a “no trespassing” sign on the gate. Yet agents of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) ignored that warning, entering his property to set up […]
  • FDR, Demagogue Champion of Leviathan and War
    Sunday was the 75th anniversary of the death of Franklin Roosevelt.  Roosevelt was sainted by the media even before he died in 1945. CNN last week trumpeted FDR as “the wartime president who Trump should learn from.” A 2019 survey of historians ranked FDR as the third greatest president. President George H.W. Bush praised him […]
  • That Didn’t Take Long: U.S. National Debt Exceeds $24 Trillion
    The U.S. national debt pushed above $24 trillion on Tuesday. The U.S. government was already running massive budget deficits long before the coronavirus pandemic and the debt was piling up at a dizzying pace. Response to the outbreak has put spending and debt in hyperdrive. The Trump administration has added $1 trillion to the national debt […]
  • The Biggest Heist in Human History
    As he valiantly tried to get a recorded vote on House passage of the $2.2 trillion coronavirus bill (the CARE Act), Rep. Thomas Massie learned once again last month the chief difference between the members of Congress and the inmates of a maximum security prison: Supermax prison inmates have better character than members of Congress.  […]
  • Risk? We don’t Need No Stinking Risk!
    We’ve crossed the monetary Rubicon. There is no going back to the way things were. With the creation of a series of Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) the Treasury Dept. and the Federal Reserve have fundamentally altered the financial landscape of the United States. We are no longer a country that tolerates the risk of capitalism. […]
  • Why Central Planning by Medical Experts Will Lead to Disaster
    A great deal of the coverage of the COVID-19 crisis has been apocalyptic. That is partly because “if it bleeds, it leads.” But it is also because some of the medical experts with media megaphones have put forward potentially catastrophic scenarios and drastic plans to deal with them, reinforced by assertions that the rest of […]
  • Timothy McVeigh, Suspects, Visit Strip Club in Weeks Before Bombing
    Saturday, April 8th, 1995, Timothy McVeigh and two other men paid a visit to a Tulsa strip club called Lady Godiva’s. The three men were reportedly there for several hours, from around 8 or 9 until around midnight.  The club’s owners were Floyd Radcliffe and his wife, Julie. They had an audio/video security system in […]
  • Evil Blossoms Where Conscience Shrinks: The Unforgivable Tragedy of Bush’s Iraq War II
    During Iraq War II (2003–2011), in addition to thousands of American soldiers and contractors who died, more than 100,000 Iraq civilians were killed. This number is consistent with independent counts as well as leaked Pentagon data (sources available at Wikipedia). However, more sophisticated studies which combined data sets and methodologies from multiple independent efforts have […]
  • Why Do We Trust Politicians to Run Our Lives?
    I became a journalist because I love to write. In fact, most people tend to pursue career paths related to things that interest them if they have any choice in the matter. A person who likes to bake might become a baker. A person who likes numbers might become an accountant. A person who loves […]
  • Anarchism and Pandemics
    Anarchists face the question: Without nations and states wouldn’t a free society be especially ravaged by pandemics? Who would enforce quarantines without rebuilding a centralized institution of violence? It’s a fair question. Anarchism isn’t about a finite goal, but an unending vector pointed towards increasing liberation. We’re not in the habit of “good enough” compromises, we […]
  • How the CARES Act Will Delay Economic Recovery
    The economic fallout of the government’s shutdown in response to the coronavirus pandemic has been unprecedented. Nearly ten million people have filed for unemployment benefits in just two weeks. The 6.6 million claims from the last week of March doubled the previous week, and both weeks smashed the previous one-week record of 700,000 claims in […]
  • Crisis Exposes Devastating Consequences of Fed Policy: Americans Have No Savings
    Two weeks ago, during a March 17 address to the nation in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, President Donald Trump asked that Americans work from home, postpone unnecessary travel, and limit social gatherings to no more than 10 people. And last week, on March 27, Trump signed a stimulus package of over $2 trillion dollars […]
  • Airline Bailouts Destabilize the Economy and Inflate Asset Prices
    In the end, after all of the political posturing and all of the speeches and exhortations for Congress to “do something,” a $2 trillion “coronavirus stimulus” bill landed on the president’s desk for The Donald to sign. And sign he did, uttering all of the platitudes and everything else that comes with “historic” spending legislation that never should […]
  • Judicial Engagement & National Emergencies
    A Curious Quote & A Historical Lesson “We repeat what was stated in Block v. Hirsh, as to the respect due to a declaration of this kind [an emergency] by the Legislature so far as it relates to present facts. But even as to them a Court is not at liberty to shut its eyes to […]
  • How Z-pak Could Slay COVID-19
    Z-Pak, also known as azithromycin or Zithromax, could be a critical tool in preventing and treating COVID-19 coronavirus, according to Professor Michael P. Lisanti, MD-PhD and Chair of Translational Medicine at Salford University in the UK. I recently spoke with Professor Lisanti to unpack his hypothesis and call for immediate clinical trials of Z-pak and […]
  • Less Driving Amid Outbreak is Hurting Red Light Camera Revenue — Which is Great
    Since states began locking down in mid-March, unemployment has skyrocketed, businesses have shuttered their doors, and these uncertain times have grown more worrisome by the day. There is one industry that is hurting, however, that shouldn’t bother many of us and that is the Red Light Camera industry. Anyone whose been self-quarantining over the last […]
  • Warren Harding and the Forgotten Depression of 1920
    It is a cliché that if we do not study the past we are condemned to repeat it. Almost equally certain, however, is that if there are lessons to be learned from an historical episode, the political class will draw all the wrong ones — and often deliberately so. Far from viewing the past as […]
  • Why Demographics is not Destiny
    “Demographics is destiny” is a phrase uttered in some rightwing circles and quietly believed in some leftwing ones. In political terms, the phrase suggests either cultural or genetic determinism, or both—namely, that people of a particular culture, ethnicity, or race will (statistically) vote in a particular way. Although the highly politically incorrect words won’t leave […]
  • The Fed Is Running Out of Bubbles to Create
    The Fed came out with a series of unprecedented measures on March 22, 2020. They announced the Fed will buy an unlimited amount of Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities (MBS), or as Peter Schiff refers to it, “QE infinity.” This has been very positively welcomed by many in the mainstream media and by businesses. Yet, what many are […]
  • Coronavirus Being Used to Scare You Away From Using Cash
    Cash has been the target of the banking and financial elites for years. Now, the coronavirus pandemic is being used to frighten the masses into accepting a cashless society. That would mean the death of what’s left of our free society. CBS News, CNN, and other mainstream outlets are fearmongering again. Alarmism is nothing new in the […]
  • America, We Have To End the Wars Now
    The Coronavirus Crisis Makes It Clear Can anyone think what our society might have spent six and a half trillion dollars on instead of 20 years of war in the Middle East for nothing? How about the trillion dollars per year we keep spending on the military on top of that? Invading, dominating and remaking […]
  • Yemen Is Shattered And The U.S. Helped The Saudis Break It
    Five years ago the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia invaded neighboring Yemen. The conflict was supposed to be quick and simple, over in a few weeks. Now the once-haughty Saudi royals have offered a ceasefire, after their opponents, Houthi irregulars, captured the province of al-Jawf. The conflict has created a horrific humanitarian crisis. Yemen, which has […]
  • The Crisis Has Exposed the Damage Done By Government Regulations
    As we watch in real-time how governments respond to the novel coronavirus pandemic, some of the most predictable forms of state overreach—from restrictions on the freedom of assembly to the suppression of regular commerce—have been rolled out. Thankfully, there is no unified world government, so there exist various examples of how certain countries are dealing with the […]
  • How Uncle Sam Will Spend $2.3 Trillion on Coronavirus Relief
    Before the coronavirus pandemic and the response to it triggered an economic meltdown, the U.S. federal government was planning to spend nearly $4.8 trillion in its 2020 fiscal year. Last week, President Trump signed a $2.3 trillion relief package aimed at mitigating an economic disaster. How the government will be spending such a gargantuan sum of money via the CARES Act […]
  • Will Coronavirus End the Fed?
    September 17, 2019 was a significant day in American economic history. On that day, the New York Federal Reserve began emergency cash infusions into the repurchasing (repo) market. This is the market banks use to make short-term loans to each other. The New York Fed acted after interest rates in the repo market rose to […]
  • Liberty and Slavery
    Among the common beliefs of libertarians, opposition to slavery is one of the least controversial. Yet, the moral argument against slavery is one of libertarian philosophy’s most enlightening topics. Considering the “why” of libertarian opposition to slavery is profoundly instructive. Libertarianism approaches the question of individual rights in a unique way.  In my opinion, the […]
  • US Supreme Court Will Hear Police Accountability Case
    Arlington, Virginia—This morning the U.S. Supreme Court announced it would review the case of James King, an innocent college student who was savagely beaten in 2014 by a police officer and FBI agent in Grand Rapids, Michigan, after being unreasonably misidentified as a fugitive. The officers were working as members of a joint state-federal police […]
  • Outraged at Thomas Massie? You Shouldn’t Be
    Thomas Massie, U.S. House of Representative from Kentucky’s 4th District, took a lot of heat for trying to force a voice vote on the House floor to pass the $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.  In a glorious show of bipartisanship, both sides of the aisle poured out their vitriol on […]
  • The $2 Trillion Stimulus Package Is Funding Your Own Surveillance
    From corporate bailouts to endowments for art, the $2 trillion stimulus package signed into law last Friday has been roundly criticized as a smash-and-grab robbery perpetrated by the country’s elite. And rightly so. However, there is another provision in the 1,000-plus page legislation that should concern Americans just as much as any of its negative […]
  • Stimulus Bill Lets Fed Operate in Complete Secrecy
    I guess we’re just supposed to have faith that Jerome Powell will do the right thing. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have that kind of faith in anybody when it comes to passing out billions of dollars in cash or creating government policy. -Mike Maharrey, TAC Last week, Congress passed a $2 […]
  • Police, Military Begin Door to Door Searches to Hunt Down New Yorkers Seeking Refuge
    Rhode Island — In perhaps the most unprecedented attack on the Constitution on which the Free Thought Project has ever has ever reported, the governor of Rhode Island has announced that the National Guard will begin conducting house-to-house searches to hunt down New Yorkers seeking refuge in their state. Not only will cops be violating […]
  • Without A Bottom Line, Government Is Not Only Blind – It Is Destructive
    In the present pandemic panic, a great many are calling for bigger, stronger, and more brutal government to deal with the coronavirus. Thus, they cheer as the political decision-makers, never wanting to let a good crisis go to waste, scurry to get themselves ‘emergency powers’.  A common assumption among both common people, the intelligentsia, and […]
  • Capitalism Makes No Sense
    Few things are so confusing as the term capitalism. The definition itself appears clear enough, with the Oxford Dictionaries saying it is “an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.” Both proponents and opponents of capitalism would likely agree […]
  • Panic Buying, Medical Rationing Underscore Importance of Free Markets
    The recent coronavirus panic has provided a stark reminder about the scarcity of economic goods. From people hoarding and stockpiling common household items like toilet paper and hand sanitizer to the downright morbid reports of doctors in Italy and Spain having to pick and choose who should receive medical care, the issue of resource scarcity […]
  • TGIF: Libertarianism in Emergencies
    Libertarians have always acknowledged that emergencies — severe extraordinary conditions of limited duration — can justify actions that would be unacceptable under normal circumstances. This doesn’t mean that all the rights-based rules disappear, only that some measures are deemed permissible that otherwise would be beyond the pale. Danger, however, lurks in this principle, requiring eternal […]
  • States Lifting Regulations to Help Business During COVID-19 Shows How Useless These Laws Are
    From the start of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, state and local governments responded in various ways from issuing emergency orders⁠—citywide shutdowns⁠ to school closures and beyond⁠—but it’s the suspension of various laws and regulations that is exposing the unnecessary regulatory web that burdens businesses. As often happens during emergencies, governors and mayors […]
  • The Deep State’s Demolition of Democracy
    “Thank God for the Deep State,” declared former acting CIA chief John McLaughlin while appearing on a panel at the National Press Club last October. In 2018, the New York Times asserted that Trump’s use of the term “Deep State” and similar rhetoric “fanned fears that he is eroding public trust in institutions, undermining the idea of […]
  • Politicians Have Used This Crisis to Remind Us They’re Mostly Wannabe Dictators
    The virus has unleashed petite tyrants to haunt their tiny jurisdictions, using the cover of crisis to arrogate powers belonging to the people. Witness Robert J. Taylor, mayor of Ostrander, Ohio (population: 643 in the 2010 census), who just declared his village to be in a “state of emergency.” Along with this declaration, the self-righteous mayor instructed […]
  • Amid COVID-19 Outbreak, Arrests Plummet, Departments Close and Chaos Does NOT Ensue
    As TFTP reported last week, prisons across the country are facing potential massive outbreaks inside their walls and are being forced to make the decision to release non-violent offenders to stave off catastrophe. Thousands of non-violent prisoners have been released and there has not been an uptick in criminal activity. What’s more, according to multiple reports, arrests […]
  • No Bailouts
    That adroit member of the British Parliament Enoch Powell once said that “the supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils.” This duty, incumbent upon politicians endowed with wisdom, is made difficult because “by the very order of things such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred.”  Well, the market crash has […]
  • Australian War Criminals
    Australia has a proud military history, even before it was a federation in 1901 it had sent men abroad in service of Empire. Still a new nation while the British fought bitterly against the Boers in South Africa, the Australian military identity was slowly forged in incidents of undeniable heroism and controversy. Famously, the Australian […]
  • Like Freedom? Then You Won’t Like the FREEDOM Act
    Last Monday, a bipartisan group of Senators and a coalition including libertarian and progressive activists thwarted a scheme to ram through the Senate legislation renewing three provisions of the USA FREEDOM Act (previously known as the USA PATRIOT Act). The bill had already been rushed through the House of Representatives, and most expected it to […]
  • The Fed’s Massive Injection of ‘Liquidity’ Also Benefits Uncle Sam
    There’s a lot to be said regarding the Fed’s surprise announcements—including its Sunday surprise of $700 billion in renewed QE and the complete elimination of all reserve requirements for banks—but here let me just focus on one element: the tendency for Fed officials and all the pundits to treat injections of “liquidity” as if they don’t count as much […]
  • Now, We Get Local. Now The World Gets Real
    “Reality is that which when we stop believing in it doesn’t go away.”    – Philip K. Dick In March of 2003, we broke ground on the first real thing I ever built, the house I currently live in.

  • The Unseen Consequences of the Coronavirus Response
    While sicknesses and death mount from the coronavirus pandemic, the responses by all levels of government have been overwhelming.  School closings, business closings, cancellations of sporting events and concerts, “stay in place” orders, hysterical panic spread by the corporate press, and massive government “stimulus” and bailout plans have all been justified as a means to […]
  • Why We Need Free Markets To Fight Pandemics
    The natural response in the face of a pandemic like the one we are experiencing today with COVID-19 is to take immediate and direct action to curb the crisis. We are told we need to have extensive quarantines, citywide lockdowns, and shelter-in-place orders. We supposedly need to limit the number of goods people can buy so […]
  • No! ‘We’ Are Not the Government
    During a speech in Asheville, North Carolina, in 1902, Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed, “The government is us; we are the government, you and I.”  Most people believe this. And it’s a bald-faced lie. Fernandina Beach, Florida, shut down all of its public beaches this evening in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Anybody caught on the beach […]
  • This Martial Law Will End, and End Badly
    First, let’s get the three principles for the post-COVID-19 world out there: If you think COVID-19 is fake, or not really scary, you don’t know science and are an ignorant person. If you post cavalierly about frolicking socially with your friends, you have no empathy for the elderly and other vulnerable populations and are a […]
  • To Kill Markets Is the Worst Possible Plan
    Momentous events usually leave strong memories on those who have lived through them, and those memories often become passed on to later generations in the form of historical interpretations of why and what had happened in the past. This has certainly been so in the cases of the Great Depression, the Second World War, the […]
  • TGIF: Despite Appearances, ‘Price Gouging’ Helps People in Distress
    [This article originally appeared on the American Institute for Economic Research website on September 12, 2017.] Critics of the free economy often complain that the market fails to “behave” as economic theory predicts. Hence the voluminous literature on “market failure” (which sparked a substantial public choice literature on “government failure” and the need for comparative institutional analysis). […]
  • Turning the Handle on the Door They Can’t Breach
    Space monkeys, art exhibits, Operation Latte Thunder – that was the plan anyways.  Nameless members of Project Mayhem set out to destroy a piece of art and a coffee bar.  It was all part of Tyler Durden’s plot to begin, as Caitlin Johnstone aptly puts it, “disintegrating patterns.”  Things were going as planned until a […]
  • Police Stole $225K in Cash and Coins, and the Court Said “Okay”
    Arlington, Va.—Seven years ago, police officers in Fresno, California, executed search warrants on the homes and business of Micah Jessop and Brittan Ashjian, who owned a business operating and servicing ATMs. Police were investigating a report of illegal gambling. Although neither was ever charged with a crime, police seized nearly $275,000 in rare coins the […]
  • Family Who Says They Do Not Have COVID-19 Under ‘Forced Quarantine’ by Police
    Nelson County, KY — A family has been forcibly quarantined in their home this week with police officers keeping them under 24-hour surveillance because a man in the home is accused of having the COVID-19 virus. According to multiple news reports and even Kentucky governor Andy Beshear, this man fled the hospital after being diagnosed […]
  • The Money-Printing Gods Have Failed
    Hooray! Finally even the robo-machines and day traders are puking, not BTFDing. Today’s 3,000 Dow Point Dump says even they have had enough of the craven dolts who occupy the Eccles Building. You do not need a PhD in economics—or even a night school survey course—to see that COVID-19 is temporary supply side shock which […]
  • The Mystery Deepens Over The Pre-Dawn Police Killing Of Duncan Lemp
    Five days after shooting 21-year-old Duncan Lemp in a predawn raid, the Montgomery County, Maryland, Police Department announced Tuesday that the killing was immaculate.  Under pressure by media criticism, the police department issued a detailed statement this afternoon purportedly exonerating itself. But that statement—the third revision of their official account of the fatal raid—is contradicted by multiple eyewitnesses. […]
  • Direct Payments From Government is Not the Way to Stimulate the Economy
    The latest in the Federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic is President Trump’s announcement of a “stimulus package” estimated between $850 billion to $1 trillion. The plan reportedly includes $50 to $100 billion bailouts to the airline industry, $200 to $300 billion in small business assistance, and at least half a trillion in “direct […]
  • SCARE!
    It has arrived, a pandemic. It swept the world, we watched, laughed and ignored it. Memes were made, media excitedly reported and millions speculated. It was fun to tinker inside of our minds what we would do should the zombie hoards arrive. We had seen the movies, but more honestly we had witnessed it on […]
  • Could the Coronavirus Be Fatal for the EU?
    Since the EU’s debt crisis over Greece in 2009 and the subsequent problems with Italy, Spain, and Portugal, eurozone banks have dedicated their balance sheets to financing government deficits. At a cost to the commercial banks’ own cash flows, negative deposit rates at the ECB have ensured that no material losses have arisen from holding short-term government […]
