Congressional Hypocrisy and the Crackdown

– January 13, 2021

“It is possible to condemn both the protestors who rampaged in the Capitol and the career politicians whose perennial abuses have destroyed Americans’ faith in the federal government. It would be especially unwise to confuse last week’s buffoonery with a bona fide coup attempt – which could happen if Washington continues disdaining too many angry Americans.” ~ James Bovard

The Abuse of Science in the Corona Crisis

– January 11, 2021

“The role of science must not be the one of state religion in pre-Enlightenment times: in the present case as in all the other previous cases, there is no knowledge that can be employed to justify a central state planning of society that overrides the freedom of individuals and their constitutional rights.” ~ Michael Esfeld

Cooperation, Not Retaliation, Can Restore Social Order

– January 11, 2021

“We have agency and reason and can see that the current cascade of retaliation and retribution is ‘unsustainable.’ A great statesman focusing on first principles could, perhaps, cut the chain of retaliation and restore widespread cooperation. I don’t know if such an American exists, but I know it isn’t Donald Trump or Joe Biden.” ~ Robert E. Wright

“The Market” Can Deliver Pho and Spring Rolls. It Can Deliver Vaccines.

– January 11, 2021

“I doubt we would be in this mess if we had left vaccine production and distribution to Walmart, Amazon, Grubhub, and Chick-fil-A. In the middle of a global pandemic, it’s too important not to.” ~ Art Carden

Thwarting the Next Attack on the Capitol

– January 10, 2021

The Liberal-Left Has Gone Fully Illiberal

– January 9, 2021

“Human rights are negotiable under this new ideology. I am not certain what this political theory should be called – perhaps left-wing authoritarianism – but it bears no resemblance to liberalism whatsoever. To the extent we have not gone quite as far as China in violating human rights in the quest to suppress the virus, the consensus on the liberal-left is plain: we have not gone far enough.” ~ Jenin Younes

Where is Jack Ma?

– January 9, 2021

“The disappearance of Jack Ma demonstrates the truth that economic freedom and social freedom are not mutually exclusive. While we should condemn the Chinese government’s actions, we should also be cautious of rising authoritarian tendencies here at home, whether it’s towards our civil rights or our economic freedom.” ~ Ethan Yang

The Playoffs Are Coming to Buffalo. Fans Don’t Want Andrew Cuomo There

– January 8, 2021

“Here’s to hoping the governor will learn an important lesson: His contradictions are becoming increasingly obvious, and people are growing less tolerant of his questionable pandemic logic. Without rhyme, reason, or adherence to restrictions among the political elite, the compliance of the public will undoubtedly waver.” ~ Fiona Harrigan

How the White House COVID Task Force Sank the Trump Presidency

– January 8, 2021

“For reasons that remain unclear, Fauci, Birx, and the gang remain on the COVID Task Force, and to this day, the White House is still delivering corona panic to states across the nation. The Task Force will live on, and to the not-so-hidden delight of its members, President Trump is president no more.” ~ Jordan Schachtel

The Charge of Treason and the Danger to Democracy

– January 6, 2021

“The surest recipe for curtailing political vitriol is to reduce political power so elections will no longer be demolition derbies that doom losing sides. And if presidents and members of Congress choose to openly scorn their oaths of office and constitutional constraints on their power – well, many Americans would consider that to be treason.” ~ James Bovard

What’s Up with the Great Reset?

– January 6, 2021

“At some point, it’s not unreasonable to observe that this is no longer about public health. It’s about a new political vision, one hatched by a private few in order to rule over the many. It is unlikely to be shared by most people, thus setting up what is likely to be an epic battle in 2021.” ~ Stacey Rudin

The West Is Responsible for Its Self-Destruction

– January 6, 2021

“If we want to maintain our republic, and Western society as a whole, we need to remember the principles that we stand for, and reject the dictates coming down from maniacal politicians and bureaucrats who seek to slowly chip away at our individual liberties.” ~ Jordan Schachtel
