“A home might be a pretty little house Filled with people and things Comfort and ease A home might be a lean to on the beach Nothing but waves rolling in The sun on my skin A home might a tent filled with friends And wherever I go I’m home with them A home might be nothing at all Just the trees up above Songs and the stars I love Don’t tell me what my life needs to be All that I need to be home Is to be me and be free I just want to be free Living free “  Freedomcat – “Living Free” Myths are not real.

US, Allies Seek to Boot Russia From G20 in Ongoing Effort to Isolate Moscow

2021g20

The White House is placing sweeping sanctions on Russia and pressuring every country to follow America's lead, but the effort to isolate Moscow does not end at economic warfare. Western states are seeking to remove Russia from the Group of Twenty - G20.  The G20 - 19 countries and the EU are members - was formed in 1999 to allow the nations that made up 90% of the world's global product to work together. Reuters reports that several Western officials are looking to remove Russia rather than attempting to use the organization to facilitate diplomacy.  One source from a Group of Seven (G7)...

Is NATO the Old Man of Europe?

While geopolitical commentators are fixated on Russia’s border with Ukraine, a more interesting development is slowly boiling underneath the surface of the Russo-Ukrainian conflict that could potentially reorder international relations—namely, the death of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Founded in 1949, NATO began with only twelve member nations. Presently, NATO counts on thirty member nations, with national security elites in the Anglo-American sphere wanting to bring Georgia and Ukraine into the fold. In both countries’ cases, NATO membership is in limbo. Despite calls...

The Federal Government Is Whipping Companies Into Enforcing Vaccine Mandates

pexels rfstudio 3825529 (1)

Advocates for vaccine mandates—led by the Biden Administration—are apparently unconcerned that the mandates are likely to drive down total employment and reduce access to government services. In many cases these are the same services that mandate-pushing politicians have always insisted are utterly “critical” and must be expanded. Instead, the party is taking the position that the drive for vaccination must be placed before all other values in society, including public safety and employment for working class Americans. The whole affair helps illustrate, yet again, the problem of allowing...

Protectionism: Morally and Economically Dumb

pexels tom fisk 2226458

Protectionism is reviving in Washington on both sides of the political aisle. Democrats are cheering proposals to restrict trade to benefit labor unions and save the environment while some Republicans are reviving Smoot-Hawley style salvation schemes. Protectionist advocates routinely seize the moral high ground—at least as it is scored in Washington—by promising that restricting imports will magically produce fair trade. Thirty years ago, in my book The Fair Trade Fraud (St. Martin’s Press), I sought to drive a wooden stake into both the intellectual and moral pretenses of American...

Down With Fraudulent ‘Fair’ Trade

11595158125 4990f90246 o

The Biden administration is embracing the same flawed “fair trade” mantra that previous administrations used to sanctify protectionist policies. Biden’s team has “largely dispensed with the idea of free trade as a goal in and of itself,” the New York Times reported. U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai recently touted the Biden administration’s plans to “shape the rules for fair trade in the 21st century.” What could possibly go wrong from such a lofty aspiration? Thirty years ago, my book The Fair Trade Fraud was published by St. Martin’s Press. That book was translated into Japanese...

When Barack Obama Got Away with Murder

245932367 10113985228876021 4433470289295551759 n

[Yesterday was] the 10th anniversary of the drone killing of Abdulrahman Al-Aulaqi, a 16 year old born in Colorado and killed in Yemen. He perished as part of Obama’s crackdown on terrorist suspects around the world. His father, who was also an American citizen, was killed two weeks earlier by another drone strike ordered by Obama. I wrote a piece condemning Obama’s assassination program for Christian Science Monitor in 2011,  “Assassination Nation: Are There Any Limits on President Obama’s License to Kill?” I derided the Obama administration’s claim that the president possessed a “right...

That Time I Swiped the U.S. Tariff Code

jpb fair trade fraud secret tariff combo #2 untitled 2

"Nothing so diminishes democracy as secrecy,” as Attorney General Ramsey Clark warned in 1967. As a journalist, I have battled federal agencies for decades to try to discover the sordid details of how Americans’ rights and liberties are being shafted. Most government cover-ups succeed because the game is rigged in Washington to blindfold citizens to most federal abuses and boondoggles. But sometimes I found ways to penetrate bureaucratic iron curtains. A few decades ago, trade policy was one of the hottest issues in Washington. Pat Buchanan was revving up his presidential campaign and...
