Caution or Catastrophe: Public Health’s COVID Response

fauci

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, proponents of lockdowns, shelter-in-place orders, mask mandates and other coercive government interventions have characterized these measures as benevolently “erring on the side of caution.” Now, as the grim toll of those public health measures comes into ever-sharper focus, it’s increasingly clear those characterizations were terribly wrong. What’s less readily apparent, however, is how the very use of the “erring on the side of caution” framing was injurious in itself—by thwarting reasoned debate of public health policies, diverting attention from...

The ‘Black Bloc’ Anarchists Who Might As Well Be Working For the Republicans

I feel sorry for the black people from the neighborhood who just want the cops to stop murdering them but who -- at least in many major cities -- cannot have a peaceful protest without white anarcho-communists coming and turning the place into a live-action Trump commercial. I used to know some of the left-anarchists who went to Seattle in 1999 for the WTO protest and such. They were good kids mostly, but they don't know what they're talking about or what role they're really playing. But they never started major riots or set fires the way these people are now. And of course the worse the...

I’m Sorry, But Most Don’t Have Access to Private Protection Services

Many may not want to hear this but if local or state police in certain cities aren't willing to protect life and private property (I know, I know, my first podcast episode detailed Warren vs. District of Columbia), they will beg for Trump to send in federal forces and this will open the door for even more overreach or even a federal police force. Some may ask whether that's Constitutional. At this point, does it matter to the power elite? And can you blame the average citizen? They have been thrust into a situation where not only can their possessions and wealth be destroyed, but their...

Supreme Court Rules Against Fourth Amendment

2018 Roberts Court

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 license. Glover entered a motion to suppresses evidence gathered during the stop, arguing there was no reasonable suspicion of an actual crime. The deputy stopped the car based on the assumption that the registered owner was probably driving. The...

Now, We Get Local. Now The World Gets Real

Get Local Get Real Tre

"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. Then I understood that there was only one way this economic and political system ended, badly.  And I knew then that I was woefully unprepared for the challenge. When I started building my house I could barely drive a nail straight. By the time the first part of it was finished I could lay a square of asphalt shingles with the best of them…. if only until about 10 am or so.  I could now solve...

2/14/20 Cliff Maloney on the Defend the Guard Movement

Cliff Maloney of Young Americans for Liberty joins the show to talk about the "Defend the Guard" movement popping up in state legislatures around the country. The legislation on which the movement is based calls for an end to the calling up of states' national guard troops to federal service without an explicit declaration by congress. These "Defend the Guard Acts" are one avenue by which Maloney's organization hopes to reduce the scope of the federal government's abusive overreach and help build a grassroots antiwar movement among American conservatives. Cliff Maloney is President of...

Foreign Policy Focus #162 – Congress Moves on War
