It is outside the routine to hear an interest group publicly claim it drafted legislation that has been passed on the floor of the United States House of Representatives. An interest group may let it be known that it worked with the sponsoring representative on preparing legislation or that the sponsoring House member drafted legislation in part due to the organization’s request. But, an organization publicly declaring it drafted legislation approved on the House floor is a bigger and less usual claim.Continue reading
Joe Biden hit the ground running in his effort to use his presidential powers to ensure traveling in America is tedious, demeaning, and uncomfortable.
On Biden’s second day in office, he signed an executive order mandating travelers wear masks on all modes of public transportation — airplanes, trains, buses, etc. As if in a cruel joke, the executive order starts off with “By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered …”.
Now comes word that Biden administration officials are planning a mandate that, for anyone to travel by airplane in America, he must first have a long stick stuck up his nose to undergo notoriously inaccurate testing for if he is infected with coronavirus.Continue reading
One of the most disturbing developments over the last few years in big money media in America is the blanket characterization of people who disagree with the big money media’s narrative on important matters as liars.Continue reading
Anthony Fauci, the director of the United States government’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told reporters Thursday that he was “knocked out” for about 24 hours after, on Tuesday, taking the second dose of experimental coronavirus vaccine. Fauci has thus joined the large and growing list of people who have suffered serious harm from the injections that he and other government officials have been encouraging Americans to take.Continue reading
J.D. Tuccille released a video this week at Reason that, in just three minutes, powerfully communicates the danger from big increases in government power being sought in the wake of conflict on January 6 at the United States Capitol.Continue reading
A Monday article at the Children’s Health Defense website provides a rundown on some of the latest regarding worries that experimental coronavirus vaccine shots may be causing deaths and injuries across America and the world.Continue reading
Across the world, people have been suffering because of coronavirus crackdowns marketed as means to limit or even stop the spread of coronavirus. Yet, looking around, many people have observed that it seems there is little to no benefit from oppressive measures such as stay-at-home and business closure orders given that coronavirus spread and dangers appear not to be significantly reduced in countries that impose harsh mandates as compared to those that maintain greater respect for liberty and commerce.
The same seems to be the situation when comparing state and local governments in America that have adopted policies justified as reactions to coronavirus that range from draconian to rather limited.Continue reading
Interviewed Wednesday by host Stuart Varney at Fox Businesses, libertarian communicator and former United States House of Representatives member Ron Paul shared some of his thoughts about Facebook’s “absurd” blocking of Paul from using his Facebook account, as well as about the related threat of fascism.Continue reading
There were delays and some people were turned away at San Diego’s new “Vaccination Super Station” near PetCo Park on Wednesday after, in a short time period, six people had allergic reactions after receiving their experimental coronavirus vaccine shots.
In addition, the unused portion of the lot of the vaccine from which the shots came was pulled from distribution. That suggests thinking that there may be something particularly dangerous about that lot.
This gives a whole new meaning to “drawing lots.”Continue reading
When you do not have a good case supporting taking an action, one tried-and-true strategy of persuasion is to pile up a mountain of trivial and ridiculous assertions and point to it as proof that you are right. If someone diligently digs through the mountain, he will find that there is nothing of substance there. But, many people will just see a mountain of accusations and figure there must be truth behind the assertion.
That deceitful persuasion strategy appears to be at play in the resolution (H.Res. 21) the United States House of Representatives voted to approve Tuesday evening. Through the resolution, the House calls on Vice President Mike Pence to use immediately executive branch procedure described in the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution to make Pence the acting president, removing President Donald Trump from presidential powers.Continue reading
