The Plot to Kidnap Michigan’s Governor

COI_Logo

On Conflicts of Interest #18, Will and Kyle look at an alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in order to try her for "treason," which the FBI claims to have unraveled with help from a number of confidential informants and undercover agents. The United Nations Security Council recently blocked testimony from the first director-general of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), who was set to speak on the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria in 2018. Several OPCW whistleblowers have challenged the organization's reporting on the...

Getting the Police Issue Right

Now that folks are coming around on the idea that law enforcement needs serious structural transformation in this country, let's make our argument a little more robust. The tiniest fraction of people get killed by police. It is not useful to think of this problem as one in which there is any real likelihood of being gunned down. At least from the perspective of intellectual integrity (whether it's useful for the masses to see it that way, is another question). The problem with the term "police brutality" is that it has multiple meanings. From a police officers perspective, something that...

Here Come the Waco Massacres

Jim Bovard in the Hill on gun control in practice: President Trump declared last week that the law enforcement should “take the guns first, go through due process second.” But the history of federal firearms enforcement shows that due process is often a mirage when federal bureaucrats drop their hammer. Before enacting sweeping new gun prohibitions, we should remember the collateral damage and constitutional absurdities from previous federal crackdowns. Gun control advocates have called for prohibiting possession of AR-15 rifles — a ban that could create five million new felons overnight,...

Prohibition Does Not Work

CNBC does a recap of the consequences of the prohibition of alcohol 100 years ago. Don't worry though. This is totally an isolated case. There are no lessons to learn about any other thing here.

You See, Government is Not Your Security Force, They Are Your Deadly Enemy

Washington Post: DEA seizes life savings of senile old man without the slightest pretext of a suspicion or belief that the money was involved in any crime at all. Every dollar Terry Rolin had saved over a lifetime was stacked in a large Tupperware container: $82,373. At 79, he was aging and worried about keeping so much cash on hand, his daughter said, so during one of her visits he asked her to open a joint bank account. Rebecca Brown was catching a flight home from the Pittsburgh airport early the next day and said she didn’t have time to stop at a bank. She confirmed on a government...

Pennsylvania Aims To Move Forward Both On Medicinal & Adult Use Cannabis Programs

Pennsylvania Considers New Recreational Cannabis Legislation A new effort to legalize recreational cannabis is coming to the Keystone State. Pennsylvania lawmakers Daylin Leach and Sharif Street are hoping to build support for their latest proposal, Senate Bill 350 which they introduced on October 15th. The bill would allow for both home delivery and the automatic expungement of many previous criminal convictions related to marijuana. The bill’s supporters estimate it will generate $500 million in tax revenue within twelve months. In contrast to the approach of many other states, Senate...

A Beer City Drowning in Regulations

On a recent outing to Odell Brewing’s new brewhouse and taproom in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood, a burgeoning part of town filled with breweries, coffee shops and twenty-somethings, I’m reminded of just how pervasive government is when it comes to influencing what can be built and where. This place seemingly has it all: plenty of seating and bars on two levels, a rooftop patio and a grade level patio. It’s kid friendly, dog friendly and there are plenty of unique beers only available at this particular location. One beer of note is The Real Dill Pils, a surprisingly delicious and refreshing...

State of Illinois To Wipe Arrest Records for Marijuana Convictions

Matt Agorist at The Free Though Project. On June 25, 2019, Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed HB 1438 into law which ends cannabis prohibition and replaces it with a system to tax and regulate cannabis for adults 21 and over. But the bill didn’t stop there, it also includes an automatic expungement process for those whose lives have been ruined by the state who kidnapped and caged them for possessing marijuana. Unlike the previous measures in other states, which fell short by requiring people with marijuana convictions to file forms and requests within arduous bureaucratic restraints, HB 1438 is...
