The incredible cruelty and folly of forced vaccines finally came home to roost. The vaccine mandate backlash has been bubbling just under the surface, but now it has spilled out into the open, threatening to completely derail an already crumbling economy and to obliterate a deeply unpopular US President and Administration. Seemingly out of nowhere what appears to be a Southwest Airlines rebellion has taken flight this weekend. According to media reports, scores of pilots and other Southwest employees have coordinated the taking of “sick days” to use them up in advance of a Southwest Airlines mandate to get the jab or lose the job. Over Saturday and Sunday more than 2,000 flights have been cancelled, with airports experiencing full-on mayhem. The Southwest Airlines Pilots Association is suing the airline over the imposed vaccine mandate, bolstering the claim that there is a “sick out” underway among angry Southwest pilots. The mainstream media is doing its best to keep a lid on the expanding rebellion against the vaccine mandates, and Southwest Airlines itself is blaming the cancellations on bad weather and a lack of air traffic controllers. However, the weather problems that Southwest claims to be experiencing seem unique to that carrier: no other [...]

During last week’s Virginia gubernatorial debate, Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe promised that as governor he would prevent parents from removing sexually explicit books from school libraries, because he doesn't think “parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” McAuliffe's disdain for parents who think they should have some say in their children’s education is shared by most “progressives,” as well as some who call themselves conservatives. They think parents should obediently pay the taxes to fund the government schools and never question any aspect of the government school program. School officials' refusal to obey the wishes of parents extends to the anti-science mask mandates. Mask mandates are not only useless in protecting children from a virus they are at low risk of becoming sick from or transmitting, the mandated mask-wearing actually makes children sick! Yet school administrators refuse to follow the science if that means listening to parents instead of the so-called experts. Replacing parental control with government control of education (and other aspects of child raising) has been a goal of authoritarians since Plato. After all, it is much easier to ensure obedience if someone has been raised to think of the government as the source of all wisdom and truth, [...]

It’s going to be a busy week on the Hill. On Thursday, the House will likely consider H.R. 3684, the $1.2 trillion “traditional” infrastructure bill. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had planned a vote on H.R. 3684 yesterday, but it was delayed when it became clear the progressive wing of the Democrat party would continue to oppose the bill unless the vote is held in tandem with the $3.5 trillion “human infrastructure” bill, as Pelosi had originally promised. The original plan had to be scrapped when at least two Democrat Senators -- Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) and Joe Manchin (WV) -- insisted the $3.5 trillion boondoggle needed to be pared back. Without both of their votes, the bill cannot pass the Senate. At the time of this writing, progressive support remains unclear. Last night, Speaker Pelosi told the Democrat caucus the traditional infrastructure bill will be voted on this Thursday even though there is still not a deal in the Senate on the $3.5 trillion bill. The House Budget Committee did mark-up a version of the “human infrastructure” package this week. The bill increases spending to expand government’s role in health care (by expanding Medicaid, Medicare, and Obamacare), childcare, and new [...]

Following revelations that Federal Reserve officials made trades in financial assets while the Fed was taking extraordinary efforts to “stimulate” the economy, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell ordered a review of the Fed’s ethics rules. While these trades appear problematic, they pale in comparison to the biggest Fed scandal — the Fed’s impoverishment of ordinary Americans, enrichment of the elites, and facilitation of government debt and deficits. The depression induced by coronavirus, though really caused by so-called public health actions government took in response, was the official reason for the Fed’s increased asset purchases last year. However, the Fed actually started ramping up its money creating activities in September of 2019, when it began pouring billions a day into the repo markets, which banks use to make short-term loans to each other, in order to keep repo market interest rates low. Coronavirus was just a convenient excuse for the Fed to do more of what it was already doing. Now, the Fed is using the limited reopening as a scapegoat for rising prices. Of course, anyone who understands Austrian economics understands that rising prices are a symptom, not a cause, of inflation. Inflation is the very act of money creation by the [...]

The big event in the U.S. Senate this week is the cloture vote on S. 2747, the “Freedom to Vote Act.” This is the latest version of H.R. 1/S. 1. Like its predecessors, this bill nationalizes elections. It also imposes new regulations on groups like Campaign for Liberty that would cripple our ability to communicate vital information about your elected legislators’ positions on key liberty issues. Today, the House will vote on H.R. 5304, legislation funding the government until December, providing billions in aid to those impacted by the recent natural disasters, and “suspending” the debt limit into next year. The House will vote on H.R. 5304 at around 2 p.m. even though text of the bill was not available until after 9 a.m. this morning. Once again, we see how the rule requiring legislation to be made available online three days before being voted on is ignored for the really significant bills. You can read more about the debt ceiling here. [...]

A few dozen protesters showed up to last weekend’s “Justice for J6” rally in Washington DC, but that did not stop the authoritarian Washington Beltway establishment from spending millions to again turn the area into a fortress, complete with a militarized Capitol Hill Police force and an army of undercover FBI agents. The protesters were easily outnumbered by reporters desperate for another “insurrection” story and by police officers who looked like they were ready for military combat. Of the reported four people arrested at the event, one turned out to be an undercover FBI agent who was then escorted to “safety” by police after showing his badge. As conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza Tweeted, the comedy of the event was that “there were so many undercover cops they were arresting each other by accident.” Earlier, former President Trump warned that the rally was a set-up by an FBI, Homeland Security Department, and Capitol Hill Police Department eager for more trophies in their war against “insurrectionists.” He advised people to avoid the event and it appears their advice was taken. They did not get their “Second Insurrection.” In fact, as we know from the FBI itself, they did not even get their First Insurrection. Though [...]

With the multiple crises of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, Hurricane Ida, and continued COVID authoritarianism, it may seem understandable that the latest report from the Medicare and Social Security Trustees was largely ignored even by conservative and libertarian media. Sadly, these reports are also being ignored by most members of Congress, when it ought to keep them (and us) up at night. According to the report, starting in 2026, the Medicare Hospital Trust Fund will only be able to pay 91% of its bills. This means Congress will either have to reduce payments to hospitals and physicians, raise the payroll tax that funds the hospital insurance program, or allow the hospital fund to draw revenues from the “general fund,” which would require raising other federal taxes or increasing debt. The problem with cutting payments is not just that Medicare pays less than private insurance, it is that many small and rural hospitals receive the majority of their funding from Medicare. A cut would put these hospitals in financial jeopardy. This is not an argument for continuing or increasing Medicare spending, instead it is an argument for unwinding the welfare state in a systematic way that ensures the government does not harm those reliant [...]

Nothing upset the Washington Beltway elites more than when in a 2007 presidential debate I pointed out the truth about the 9/11 attacks: they attacked us because we’ve been in the Middle East, sanctioning and bombing the civilian population, for decades. The 9/11 attackers were not motivated to commit suicide terrorism on the Twin Towers and Pentagon because they dislike our freedoms, as then-President Bush claimed. That was a self-serving lie. They hated – and hate – us because we kill them for no reason. Day after day. Year after year. Right up until just a few days ago, when President Biden slaughtered Zemari Ahmadi and nine members of his family - including seven children - in Afghanistan. The Administration bragged about taking out a top ISIS target. But they lied. Ahmadi was just an aid worker, working for a California-based organization, bringing water to suffering Afghan village residents. This horror has been repeated thousands of times, over and over, for decades. Does Washington believe these people are subhuman? That they somehow don’t care about their relatives being killed? That they don’t react as we would react if a foreign power slaughtered our families? Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright famously suggested in [...]

Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s withdrawal of the nomination of professional gun control advocate David Chipman to head the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms: “President Biden’s withdrawal of former Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) Agent and professional anti-Second Amendment advocate David Chipman is a victory for every Campaign for Liberty member who let their Senators know a vote for Chipman was a vote against the inalienable right to keep and bear arms.  This is another example of why I am grateful for Campaign for Liberty activists' tireless defense of the Bill of Rights. “While we celebrate today’s victory, we must be prepared for President Biden to nominate someone with the same anti-Second Amendment views as Chipman, but without the same history of aggressive advocacy for gun control. We must also continue to oppose all of the Biden administration’s gun control agenda.” [...]

Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s vaccine mandate on all businesses with 100 or more employees: “President Biden’s executive order forcing companies with 100 or more employees to require COVID vaccination or weekly testing has no basis in science, the Constitution, or the principles of a free society. It also sets a dangerous precedent that can and will be used to justify future federal mandates on businesses and their employees. “My Campaign for Liberty group will mobilize pro-liberty Americans to resist these mandates and other abuses of power in regard to COVID by authoritarian politicians and bureaucrats to expand their power and shrink our liberties.” [...]
