School Closure: A Careful Review of the Evidence

– February 19, 2021

“Why have these school closures gone on for so long? What was the reason for this very flawed policy, as it surely is not based on available research data or even common sense for that matter? This is tantamount to sabotage of our children by government officials, Teachers’ unions, seemingly unskilled medical experts, and public health agencies, the latter charged with the health and well-being of our societies.” ~ AIER Contributing Authors

Elites Gone Wild

– February 19, 2021

“With an approval rating that is already abysmally low, Congress may have calculated that keeping its members alive is more important than keeping America’s democratic traditions alive. This is, after all, an age where no death can be tolerated, even if saving one person from something salient, like Covid-19, means another must die from a different, less important cause, like freezing to death.” ~ Robert E. Wright

Lockdowns and the Texas Power Disaster

– February 18, 2021

“That one of the results is the loss of power and water for millions of people, endangering lives across the whole state of Texas, is fully in keeping with the Medieval approach to pandemic management.” ~ Jeffrey Tucker

The Abuse of Emergency Powers and Lockdowns

– February 18, 2021

“Without significant efforts to push back and reclaim our liberties, lockdowns can and will leave a permanent mark on our system of limited government. What should keep every freedom-loving citizen up at night is not Covid-19 but the disease of authoritarianism that is slowly killing our liberal democracy. Pandemics come and go, but a free society is almost impossible to retrieve once it has been cast into the abyss of subjugation.” ~ Ethan Yang

Anatomy of the Nursing Home Death Warrants

– February 16, 2021

“The buck does indeed stop with the elected leaders who made the fateful decisions to send sick COVID patients into nursing homes, lock down their states, and mask up their citizens in perpetuity, but that’s only half of the story. The bad data they used almost exclusively came from the Gates network, which has trafficked in pseudoscience and has demonstrated complete incompetence and reckless forecasting since the beginning of last year.” ~ Jordan Schachtel

Kevin Durant’s Genius Vivifies the Abject Stupidity of the Lockdowns

– February 16, 2021

“This tragic imposition of command-and-control by politicians means progress against career-ending injuries for athletes will likely slow, the discovery of what will eventually render the internet primitive will similarly be rendered a more distant object, and then progress against diseases that still kill us will have been relatively suffocated. All so politicians could ‘do something.'” ~ John Tamny

Sovereignty Still Rests with the People, Not Congress

– February 12, 2021

“No amount of selective quotes from the Constitution by Raskin and other righteous legislators will curb the contempt that politicians have richly earned. Many Americans instinctively recognize that, as Thomas Paine declared, ‘the trade of governing has always been monopolized by the most ignorant and the most rascally individuals of mankind.'” ~ James Bovard

Would You Support the Lockdowns If It Meant Losing Your Own Job?

– February 11, 2021

“Belief in the corona-religion is thin, but much worse, it’s gutless. People believe as long their jobs and their businesses aren’t being destroyed. Twenty or one hundred years ago they wouldn’t have been so sanguine. Let’s never stop reminding them of this truth.” ~ John Tamny

Why the UK Government Now Must, But Won’t, Abandon Lockdown

– February 11, 2021

“Were it to be capable of learning from its ‘achievement,’ the Government should now self-consciously abandon the policy aimed at the entire population, the most important part of which would be to end lockdown, tiers, and all such general restrictions. But this would require the Government to acknowledge that its policy has been a mistake from the outset, and the general lack of capacity the Government has shown includes a lack of capacity to make such an acknowledgement.” ~ David Campbell

Life After Burma: The Saga of Bo Bo Nge

– February 11, 2021

“When Suu Kyi won her reelection early this year in a landslide, Myanmar’s generals had had enough. They reassumed power and on February 1 dispatched five soldiers to arrest Bo Bo at his home in Myanmar’s new capital Naypyidaw. Commented a banker in Yangon, ‘It’s a circular firing squad around here.’ Free Bo Bo! Free the world economy from zero sum generalists.” ~ George Gilder

The TSA’s New Mask Mandate

– February 8, 2021

“Can the TSA reform its searches and other procedures so that its own employees avoid getting denounced as ‘Typhoid Marys?’ Is ‘social distancing’ from boneheaded enforcement agents asking too much? Alas, it is difficult to expect reasonable policies from an agency that still seems inspired by one of its first mottoes: ‘Dominate. Intimidate. Control.'” ~ James Bovard

The Uyghurs as Victims of Chinese National Socialism

– February 8, 2021

“The Uyghurs and Tibetans are alien and subversive bodies in the Chinese nation that must be absorbed or eliminated. Beginning with Mao and now with terrifying single-mindedness by Xi Jinping, the irradiation of these foreign elements are to be ‘neutralized.’ This truly makes the Chinese political system an ideology of national socialism in the footsteps of others that have preceded it.” ~ Richard M. Ebeling
