1776. . . That's what the dollar price of gold hovered at over the recent 4th of July Holiday. With headlines like one from Bloomberg recently stating "A Crash in the Dollar is Coming," it shouldn't be a surprise precious metal values are rising. But seeing it -- on such a special day for our country -- it burns me up how shameful it is our Republic is closer than ever to being driven over the edge of a cliff. Especially since it could be avoided. I believe it's not too late if I can count on enough patriots like you to step up today. Will you please complete Campaign for Liberty's Audit the Fed petition at once that I've prepared to go to your U.S. Representative? You see, the National media elites blather on about COVID-19 and tell us this pandemic and "racism" are the culprits behind the economic and social disaster our country is careening toward. But the truth is, the Federal Reserve and the fiscal house of cards politicians in BOTH parties have built over the years is what's brought our country to the brink. Now it's up to liberty-loving Americans like you and me to avert disaster by taking the battle to the heart of Washington, D.C.'s Big [...]

Since mid-May, the House of Representatives has been using “proxy voting.” Proxy voting is a way to allow the House to vote on legislation when many Representatives are unable or unwilling to come to D.C. because of the coronavirus, or more accurately, the overreaction to the coronavirus. The House passed a change to the House rules implementing proxy voting on May 15 by a largely party-line vote of 217-189. You can see that vote here. So how does proxy voting work? Whenever the Speaker declares there is a “novel coronavirus” emergency, the representatives may vote by proxy voting up to 45 days. The speaker can then extend the time for proxy voting if she feels it’s necessary. In fact, she has already extended proxy voting to August. A member who is unable to travel to D.C. can give another member their proxy by submitting a letter to the Clerk of the House. Representatives can revoke or alter their proxy at any time. A representative may have up to ten proxies. Representatives holding a proxy must obtain instructions on how to vote before casting the vote. Votes will be recorded as by proxy, but the website of the House does not list what votes were cast by [...]

On July 2nd, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order mandating the wearing of face masks across the state, whether indoors or outdoors, when six feet cannot be maintained between people. In the governor’s decree, he cited a rise in Covid cases, a rise in test positivity, and a rise in hospitalizations as justification to force people to cover their faces in public. The move is not only a violation of the civil liberties of all Texans. Abbott may have based his executive order on inaccurate information about a “rise” in Covid cases due to the Texas State Department of Health Services changing the definition of what constitutes a “Covid case.” Thanks goes to Collin County Judge Chris Hill for blowing the whistle on what appears to be a move in mid-May to redefine what was a “Covid” case to open the door to a massive increase – all to match the mainstream media line that a “second wave” was on the way. In a Commissioners Court hearing for Collin County on May 18th, it was revealed that while previously the determination of a Covid “case” was a confirmed test result, the definition was suddenly changed to count “probable” cases as “cases.” [...]

For months, the Washington Post and the rest of the mainstream media kept a morbid Covid-19 “death count” on their front pages and at the top of their news broadcasts. The coronavirus outbreak was all about the number of dead. The narrative was intended to boost governors like Cuomo in New York and Whitmer in Michigan, who turned their states authoritarian under the false notion that destroying people’s jobs, freedom, and lives would somehow keep a virus from doing what viruses always do: spread through a population until eventually losing strength and dying out. The “death count” was always the headline. But then all of a sudden early in June the mainstream media did a George Orwell and lectured us that it is all about “cases” and has always been all about “cases.” Death, and especially infection fatality rate, were irrelevant. Why? Because from the peak in April, deaths had decreased by 90 percent and were continuing to crash. That was not terrifying enough so the media pretended this good news did not exist. With massive increases in testing, the “case” numbers climbed. This is not rocket science: the more people you test the more “cases” you discover. Unfortunately our mainstream media is only [...]

You may have seen them in your town. . . Police armed with grenade launchers. . . Driving around in militarized vehicles. . . Drones flying through the skies keeping a watchful eye on the people. And you may have wondered why your local police look (and increasingly act) like an occupying army. The answer should not surprise you --it’s the federal government and their war on terror. In 1997, Congress added Section 1033 to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) authorizing the transfer of military grade weapons to local police agencies. The program really got ramped up when the “war on terror” began. Today, even small towns that are highly unlikely to suffer a terrorist attack are using Section 1033 to obtain tanks, grenades, tear gas, and even weaponized drones. And Section 1033’s “use it or lose it” provision incentivizes local police to use the military equipment obtained under 1033 for routine police work! Fortunately, you and I have a chance to start rolling back police militarization, but we need to act fast! You see, this week, the U.S. Senate is considering the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Senators Brian Schatz (D-HI) and Rand Paul (R-KY) are offering an amendment that would forbid the use of Section 1033 to provide [...]

In a sign that the Federal Reserve is growing increasingly desperate to jump-start the economy, the Fed’s Secondary Market Credit Facility has begun purchasing individual corporate bonds. The Secondary Market Credit Facility was created by Congress as part of a coronavirus stimulus bill to purchase as much as 750 billion dollars of corporate credit. Until last week, the Secondary Market Credit Facility had limited its purchases to exchange-traded funds, which are bundled groups of stocks or bonds. The bond purchasing initiative, like all Fed initiatives, will fail to produce long-term prosperity. These purchases distort the economy by increasing the money supply and thus lowering interest rates, which are the price of money. In this case, the Fed’s purchase of individual corporate bonds enables select corporations to pursue projects for which they could not otherwise have obtained funding. This distorts signals sent by the market, making these companies seem like better investments than they actually are and thus allowing these companies to attract more private investment. This will cause these companies to experience a Fed-created bubble. Like all Fed-created bubbles, the corporate bond bubble will eventually burst, causing businesses to collapse, investors to lose their money (unless they receive a government bailout), [...]

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) introduced legislation last week that would end the use of no-knock warrants, a battle Campaign for Liberty has been waging for years at the state level. Senator Paul’s bill (S.3955), the “Justice for Breonna Taylor Act,” would end violent, unannounced entry of a suspect’s home by federal law enforcement officials, and it would ban no-knock warrants by state and local police that receive federal money. Breonna Taylor was an innocent victim of a no-knock raid in Louisville, KY in March of 2020. She was an Emergency Medical Technician in Louisville. The actual target of the investigation had dated Ms. Taylor at one time and was being investigated for allegedly selling controlled substances from a drug house over 10 miles away from her home. Ms. Taylor’s boyfriend, who was licensed to carry a firearm, shot first after mistaking the police as criminal invaders. In the end, Ms. Taylor was shot eight times and died at the scene. Sadly, this is not a unique situation. There are literally thousands of other stories like these, dating back to the ’70s when no-knock raids first came on the scene in the U.S. Initially, the tactic was used only in extreme situations, such as active [...]

Just a week or so ago the mainstream media and thousands representing the “medical community” told us we must throw out the “stay-at-home” orders and go to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police. The Covid-19 virus will not bother people who are protesting this injustice, they said. The virus only attacks people leaving their homes to protest the stay-at-home orders. Now, after thousands of businesses – many of them black-owned – have been reduced to rubble and innocent people in the inner cities no longer have anywhere to shop for the basic necessities of life, the mainstream media has backed off of its non-stop coverage of the protests. Suddenly last week they all simultaneously embraced a new fear story to terrify the masses: a “second wave” of coronavirus was among us. It was targeting those states that dared to “open up” their economies and begin a return to relatively normal lives. Texas, Florida, and California were singled out to scare the rest of the country into thinking that if you dare leave your homes you will catch coronavirus and die. There was a “spike” in coronavirus “cases” they claimed. Funny, just a month [...]

It seems like only yesterday. Americans were denied the right to go to their churches. They were denied the right to visit their loved ones in the hospital. They were denied the right to open their businesses and go to work to provide for themselves and their families. They were denied the right to go to restaurants, to bars, to hair salons. No laws were passed denying these rights. Even that would be illegal and immoral. But what happened was worse. They were denied these basic rights by governors, county judges, and even local mayors who used the coronavirus outbreak as an excuse to rule by decree. They stole power that was not theirs to take and wielded it at all levels to force America into three months of house arrest. Then, in the midst of stay-at-home orders across the country, the same governors and local officials who locked Americans in their homes suddenly came around with their keys and threw open the doors. Suddenly not only was it OK to go out into the street, it was required to go out into the street! What happened? A cure? A miraculous vaccine? No. The officials who locked Americans up found a cause they [...]

The House is not in session this week. The Senate is in session and considering nominations and may pass a motion to go to conference on H.R. 6172, the bill reauthorizing the USA FREEDOM Act. So today, we will look at the suspension bills from last week: 1.    S. 3744—Imposes sanctions on any individual found to be involved in the Chinese government’s oppression of the Uyghur Muslim minority. As Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul often points out, sanctions are an act of war. Therefore, any representative voting for this is voting in favor of carrying out an act of war against China and doing so after only 40 minutes of debate. Of course, few representatives think about the consequences of an act of war against China, they simply accept the government propaganda regarding China’s treatment of the Uyghur. Even many who understand the danger of this legislation will vote for it for fear of being attacked as “soft on China” or “enabling China’s human rights violations.” So, kudos to Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY), who showed true political courage by being the only member to vote no. Representative Massie showed true commitment to non-interventionist foreign policy by willing to stand alone against the mad rush [...]
