Wanted: Marijuana Freedom

In my May article “A Pantry Full of Marijuana,” I pined for the day when “governments across America will consider it none of their business how much marijuana people have in their homes, cars, purses, or wherever.” Such has long been the situation with legal alcohol. However, while the momentum for marijuana legalization across the Untied States remains strong, the marijuana legalization that materializes continues to have many burdensome strings attached, including limitations on how much marijuana a person can legally possess.

Students for Liberty Director of Alumni Programs: Just Ending Sanctions on Venezuela ‘Would Be Foolish’

On Saturday, I wrote about Students for Liberty Chief Executive Officer Wolf von Laer and Director of Alumni Programs Jorge Jraissati’s Foreign Policy article focused on promoting that the United States government tweak the use of its sanctions against Venezuela to make those sanctions more effective in achieving changes in Venezuela that von Laer and Jraissati desire. I noted that promoting this policy change while not even mentioning the merit of just dropping the sanctions on Venezuela is peculiar for leaders of an organization that touts itself as the “largest libertarian student organization in the world.”

Leaders of ‘Largest Libertarian Student Organization in the World’ Say Sanction Venezuela

You would likely expect leaders of Students for Liberty to oppose the imposing of sanctions on Venezuela. After all, the organization claims at its website that it is the “largest libertarian student organization in the world” and libertarians are known for their support for a noninterventionist foreign policy. That noninterventionist approach includes opposition to imposing sanctions on other countries to bring about “regime change” or to force changes in government policies in those countries.

Injunction on President Biden’s Vaccine Mandate for Medical Workers Goes Countrywide

Writing Monday regarding a United States district court that day ordering, in the case of Missouri v. Biden, an injunction on the implementation and enforcement of President Joe Biden’s mandate that millions of health care workers take experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots, I suggested that that order that applies in ten states may be a step toward a countrywide suspension of the mandate.

Another Court Knocks Down a President Biden Vaccine Mandate, Enjoining the Mandate on Employees of US Government Contractors

Earlier this month, in response to a United States appellate court’s preliminary injunction order, the US government suspended implementing and enforcing President Joe Biden’s mandate regarding employees of companies with 100 or more employees taking experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots. Then, yesterday, a US district court issued a preliminary injunction order against the implementation and enforcement of Biden’s mandate that millions of workers in the health care field take the shots.

Court Enjoins Enforcement of President Biden’s Medical Workers Vaccine Mandate in Ten States

On Monday, Judge Matthew T. Schelp of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri issued an order of preliminary injunction barring the United States government from implementing and enforcing President Joe Biden’s mandate, enacted via Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services regulations, that millions of workers at facilities that participate in Medicare or Medicaid take experimental coronavirus “vaccines.”

World Health Organization Opposes Travel Bans Purportedly Imposed to Protect Against ‘Omicron’

Omicron is the newly named type of coronavirus that governments are using to spread fear and to impose new restrictions on people’s activities in the name of protecting “public health.” Among those new restrictions, national governments are banning the entry of people who have been in certain countries. For, example, United States President Joe Biden unilaterally declared on Friday (no congressional approval sought or obtained) that most people, with exceptions for US citizens and some others, who have been in any of eight listed countries in Africa over the previous 14 days may not enter America.

Mexico’s Different Take on Giving Experimental Coronavirus Vaccine Shots to Children

United States President Joe Biden, a coronavirus crackdown enthusiast, appears to have no qualms about promoting that every American take experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots and even threatening millions of people with loss of their jobs if they refuse the shots. In contrast, south of the border, Mexico President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has distinguished himself by speaking out against an array of violations of liberty governments have undertaken in the name of countering coronavirus. Refreshingly, López Obrador has also taken a more reasoned approach to whether people should take the experimental shots.

OSHA Stops Implementation and Enforcement of Coronavirus ‘Vaccine’ Mandate for Companies with 100 or More Employees

Here is some good news for many Americans being threatened with the loss of their jobs if they do not take experimental coronavirus “vaccine” shots: The United States government’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced on Wednesday that it has “suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement” of OSHA’s vaccine mandate applicable to employees at companies with 100 or more employees.
