Canada Declares War On Truckers

The mayor of Canada's Capital, Ottawa, has declared a state of emergency over the "Freedom Convoy" that has protested for ten days against Covid mandates. He has instructed his police to arrest anyone bringing fuel or any other kind of assistance to the truckers - essentially freezing them out. It is not working. What will they do next? Also today, Rep. Massie lays it on the line over vaccine mandates. Watch today's Liberty Report:

GoFundMe and the Nag’s Head Light: How Crowdfunding Has Become The Latest Battleground Over Free Speech

undefined

GoFundMe’s suspension of millions to support protesting truckers in Canada shocked many, particularly when the company initially announced its intention to distribute the money to other charities. It was less of a surprise for those of us who have criticized the company for years over its use of the platform to target and block funds for conservative and libertarian causes. Indeed, the company has revised an old practice known as the “Nag’s Head light” in luring the unsuspecting into what has become a liberal lockbox on funds.

In the Carolinas, locals would sometimes tie a lantern under the head of a horse to lure ships to their doom. Thinking the light was a ship in deep water, the ships would unwittingly sail into the shore rocks where they would be stripped of their cargo. That is how the resort town Nag’s Head, North Carolina got its name.

GoFundMe is the ultimate Nag’s Head operation. It draws conservative and libertarian causes to its shore with promise of being a neutral crowdfunding site. At its creation, the founders pledged to change the world by “disrupting giving” by handing control to average people in supporting others with common values and views.

Homeschooling Can Save Children from Critical Race Theory and Masks

undefined

The introduction of politicized education ideas like “critical race theory” into the curriculum of government schools is a major reason for American public school systems’ decline. In many schools, political agendas have been crowding out what many parents understand as the primary purpose of schools — educating students in core subjects such as reading, mathematics, and science.

The Media War on Canadian Truckers: Is Freedom Public Enemy Number One?

undefined

The denigration of the Canadian trucker protest convoy exemplifies how freedom is now the biggest villain of the covid-19 pandemic. A Washington Post cartoonist portrayed the trucker convoy as “fascism” incarnate while another Post column derided the “toxic ‘Freedom Convoy.’” Anyone who resists any government command is apparently now a public enemy.

The trucker protest was spurred by the Canadian government’s sweeping covid vaccine mandate. Many truckers believe the risks of the vaccine outweigh the benefit and, more importantly, that they have the right to control their own bodies. Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau declared on Monday, “There is no place in our country for threats, violence or hatred.” Except for the hatred Trudeau whips up by denouncing vaccine mandate opponents as “racist” and “misogynistic.” And except for the “threats” and “violence” used by government enforcement agents to compel submission to any pandemic decree issued by Trudeau or other politicians.

Since the start of this pandemic, many people who boasted of their trust in “science and data” also believed that absolute power would keep them safe. According to their scorecard, anyone who objected to government commands was the equivalent of a heretic who must be condemned if not banished from every place except the cemetery. North of the border, Quebec epitomizes this intolerance with its new edict prohibiting unvaccinated individuals from shopping at Costco or Walmart.

Regime 'Libertarians' Call for Cato Blood

undefined

We have been long critical of a "libertarian international" (think of it as "LIBINTERN", like the old COMINTERN)  that has emerged (with lavish funding from the US government, as well as from the various hydra heads of the George Soros world, the shadowy Atlas Network, and elsewhere) to invariably chime in for US "regime change," sanctions, and militarism overseas. These "libertarians" are critical allies of the neocons and the US deep state, which needs validation for its destructive policies from all ideological corners - especially "non-interventionists." 

The foreign policy goals of these soi-dissant "libertarian" advocates for "freedom" overseas coincidentally always align with the foreign policy goals of the US government, as I pointed out in a 2019 speech to the Mises Institute. Isn't that funny? Libertarians for global US empire?

In the latest push to war with Russia by Obama flunkies like Nuland, Blinken, Sullivan, et al, these bought-and-paid-for fake libertarians could again be counted upon to come out all hands on deck for team war.

And so they did.

Attack of the Transphobic Putin-Nazi Truckers!

undefined

And, in light of the exposure of Putin’s plot to produce a “very graphic” false-flag video “involving the deployment of corpses” as a pretext to invade the Ukraine and set off nuclear Armageddon, or at least a raft of economic sanctions and DEFCON 1-level bellicose verbiage, it’s possible that the entire “Covid pandemic” was an elaborate Putin-Nazi ruse designed to bring down the Trudeau government, and sabotage the implementation of the New Normal global-segregation system, and the compulsory mRNA “vaccination” of every man, woman, and child on earth, and “democracy,” and transgender rights … or whatever.

What I Would Have Said to Newsy

undefined

I got cancelled. It's not for anything I said, but for what I might have said. I might have told the truth about the Biden Administration's insane push to war over Ukraine to an American audience steeped in mainstream media gaslighting. I might have mentioned that there is zero US national interest in who governs Ukraine. This crook or that one...who cares?

Let me back up a bit. Earlier today I got a message from the gentleman who helps us out with media bookings. A nationwide news outlet is looking for someone to do six minutes live on Russian President Putin's remarks about the US response to a Russian security proposal, he wrote. Was I interested?

Washington and its obedient lapdog press have been pushing war with Russia over Ukraine for weeks and I thought I might be able to provide just a couple of gentle counter-points to the narrative. While Newsy, the requester, is not a network I was familiar with, it is owned by the E. W. Scripps Company, which is a billion dollar media organization. So I said "yes."

The hit time was coming up. I set up the camera and the lighting and changed out of my gym clothes. And waited.

And waited.

Don’t Be Too Emboldened by the Poll Saying 70 Percent of Americans Want to Accept Covid and Get On With Their Lives

undefined

Opponents of coronavirus crackdowns have found encouragement in the results of a new Monmouth University poll in which 70 percent of surveyed Americans responded that they tend to agree with the following statement: “It’s time we accept that Covid is here to stay and we just need to get on with our lives.” Supermajority agreement with this statement does seem to be a good sign for freedom. But, considering respondents’ answers to other questions in the poll suggests that a substantial portion of people saying we need to “get on with our lives” are actually supporting doing so in a “new normal” manner that incorporates significant aspects of violations of freedom that government has imposed in the name of countering coronavirus.

The poll results show that 43 percent of surveyed individuals say United States President Joe Biden has “done a good job” in his “dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.” Hmmm. This is the president who has imposed, in the name of countering coronavirus, major restrictions of the exercise of freedom. These restrictions include a national mask mandate for transportation related activities and on government property. Biden also imposed national vaccine mandates upon many Americans — those working for companies with 100 or more employees, for many health care related companies, for the US government, and for contractors or subcontractors of the US government.

But, maybe most the overlap of the people who say we just need to get on with our lives and also say Biden has done a good job dealing with coronavirus can be explained away. Some of these individuals may be ignorant of what Biden has done in regard to the matter and have just given him the benefit of the doubt. Some of them may know the anti-freedom actions Biden has pursued but are happy he has not gone further to, say, send people to coronavirus concentration camps or require people to show vaccine passports to go about their daily activities — other than working at a job.

Biden's Free Masks Are Here! Do You Want One?

When government promises you something for free, it's a good idea to look that gift horse in the mouth. Now that the free government facemasks have arrived in stores, this advice is doubly important.
