The Patriot Act

Biden’s Vaccine Mandate, and State Power Over Your Life

The Biden administration on Thursday announced sweeping new mandates. The new mandates require that all employers with more than one hundred workers require workers to be vaccinated or to test for the virus weekly. The mandates also require covid vaccinations for the 17 million workers at health facilities that receive federal Medicare or Medicaid. Moreover, vaccines are mandated for all employees of the federal government’s executive branch, and for all contractors who do business with the federal government. There is no option to test out in these cases. The new mandates extend an...

The Old Patriot Act Didn’t Work, and Neither Will the New One

President Biden, congressional Democrats, and much of the media are clamoring for a new law against domestic terrorism. Before enacting a new law, Americans should recognize how “terrorism” has spurred deluges of political and prosecutorial malarkey for almost 20 years. Any new crackdown on terrorism will turn into a numbers game in which justice and fair play don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell. In the six weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the feds rounded up 1,200 people as suspected terrorists or terrorist supporters in the United States. All that was necessary for an Arab...

‘Libertarian Terrorists’

John Brennan 2018

The Department of Homeland Security issued on Wednesday a nationwide terror alert lasting until April 30. The alert warns of potential terrorist attacks from Americans who are “ideologically motivated” and have “objections to the exercise of government authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives.” The language used in this alert suggests that millions of Americans are potential terrorists. Second Amendment supporting, antiwar, anti-tax, anti-politics, anti-militarization, pro-life, and anti-Federal Reserve activists certainly...

5/18/20 Trevor Timm on FISA, the Patriot Act, Chelsea Manning, and Julian Assange

Scott interviews Trevor Timm about a recent U.S. senate vote that would grant the government access to Americans' browser history without a warrant. This shameful vote is surprising to those who thought that even Washington insiders would have stood up to a civil liberties violation this egregious. Timm and Scott also discuss Julian Assange's extradition case, which has the potential to set a dangerous precedent not just for iconoclasts exposing scandalous government secrets, but for anyone who does investigative journalism as we know it. Discussed on the show: "The US Senate voted to let...

Matt Taibbi: Democrats Have Abandoned Civil Liberties

I know. It's hard to believe the guys who hired the Delta Force to burn the Branch Davidians to death, banned AR-15s, voted for the PATRIOT Act, colluded with Bush on spying and torture and war, let Obama get away with deliberately murdering American citizens and launching wars without any sort of authorization at all would finally give up the pretense that they care about civil liberties just because of partisanship against Trump, but here we are. (And hard disagree about Obama using FISA against Israeli agents in the U.S.. If it has a legitimate use, that's...

Like Freedom? Then You Won’t Like the FREEDOM Act

Screen Shot 2020 03 24 At 12.32.21 Pm

Last Monday, a bipartisan group of Senators and a coalition including libertarian and progressive activists thwarted a scheme to ram through the Senate legislation renewing three provisions of the USA FREEDOM Act (previously known as the USA PATRIOT Act). The bill had already been rushed through the House of Representatives, and most expected it to sail through the Senate. But, instead, Senate leadership had to settle for a 77-day extension. Senate leadership was also forced to allow consideration of several amendments at a later date. Included is Sen. Rand Paul’s amendment that would...

NATO Is a Mess. It Is Time to End the Outdated Alliance.

On FPF #425, I explain why NATO should be dissolved. NATO leaders are meeting in London and there are plenty of issues among the members. Turkey is recently purchased Russian made air defense systems and is refusing to sign off on defense plans unless other countries label the Syrian Kurdish militia as a terror group. France is accusing Turkey of using terror proxy groups against the Kurds in Syria. The French president recently called NATO brain dead, identifying the alliance lacks an enemy. Trump said he would not be surprised if Franch leaves NATO and is threatening sanctions on...
