Dr. Birx Praises Herself While Revealing Ignorance, Treachery, and Deceit ⋆

The story of the lockdowns is a tale of Biblical proportions, at once evil and desperately sad and tragic, a story of power, scientific failure, intellectual insularity and insanity, outrageous arrogance, feudalistic impulses, mass delusion, plus political treachery and conspiracy. It is real-life horror for the ages, a tale of how the land of the free became a despotic hellscape so quickly and… → Read More

The Origin and Operation of the US Administrative State ⋆

The emerging economic crisis is going to unleash the administrative state as never before. Genuine change is still a very long time away. → Read More

CDC Wants Its Covid Regime Made Permanent ⋆

What the CDC pushed on the country, even the world, was without precedent. The resulting disasters are everywhere present. → Read More

Elections Won’t Fix This ⋆

It’s been going on for our entire history. As a people, we believe our elections are what keep the people and not the dictators in charge. → Read More

The Loss of Trust Is Well Earned ⋆

Are we really supposed to forget about what happened to the world, to go on with our lives and fully trust the elites to manage our future? → Read More

When Haircuts Were Illegal ⋆

Let us not forget those months when the haircut was illegal. When governments finally allowed them, it didn’t allow blow dryers and made customers follow arrows on the floor and use only “touchless” payment methods. That’s pandemic control in a nutshell. What a disgrace this entire period was to science, rationality, human rights, and freedom. → Read More

Two Weeks to Flatten the GDP ⋆

The National Bureau of Economic Research defines a recession as two consecutive declines in GDP. We are halfway there. → Read More

The Unmasking of America ⋆

It turns out that the mysophobic control freaks who wanted the entire population masked had become a tiny minority → Read More

The Inflation Disaster Is Collateral Damage from Lockdowns ⋆

Persistently high inflation is a tragedy for the poor and working classes. But it is especially awful for savers. More collateral damage from the lockdowns two years ago → Read More

How Public Opinion Ended Covid, and Started the Next Thing ⋆

One-half to two-thirds of the public believe that the pandemic response was an enormous flop, that their liberties are far less secure now → Read More

Now is the Time for Mass Resignations from Within the Ruling Class ⋆

The obvious answer to the current instability is mass resignations within the administrative state and among the class of politicians that gives it cover. In the name of peace, human rights, and the renewal of prosperity and trust, this needs to happen today. Bury the pride and do what’s right. Do it now while there is still time for the revolution to be velvet. → Read More

Slouching Toward Endemicity ⋆

The ambition to wipe out the virus in two weeks or permanently “slow the spread” only prolonged the pain. Slouching toward endemicity. → Read More

A President Betrayed by Bureaucrats: Scott Atlas’s Masterpiece on the Covid Disaster ⋆

Atlas’s book has exposed a scandal for the ages. It is enormously valuable because it fully blows up what seems to be an emerging fake story involving a supposedly Covid-denying president who did nothing vs. heroic scientists in the White House who urged compulsory mitigating measures consistent with prevailing scientific opinion. Not one word of that is true → Read More

The Truth About Tyranny ⋆

Every tyranny in history depended on recruits from within the culture. The desire to cleanse society of enemies compels compliance. → Read More

They Considered and Rejected Pandemic Closures in 1957 ⋆

Newspaper reports at the time offer no record of widespread public event cancellations much less forced closures. Sometimes college and high school football games were postponed due to illness absences. Some conventions were cancelled by organizers. But that is all. → Read More

YouTube Censors Florida Governor DeSantis and His Science Advisors

"The pulling of the roundtable video comes a day after the total humiliation of 60 Minutes in many stories that defended the governor. Its deletion of the most viewed version online denies viewers the opportunity to observe DeSantis’s impressive knowledge on the subject of the coronavirus and... → Read More

When Your Intellectual Heroes Let You Down

"The case against lockdowns is the obverse of the case for freedom itself. It seems unconscionable for any liberal mind to be wrong on this point. That so many have gone silent or even shown sympathy for lockdowns reveals just how tremendously confusing these times have been." ~ Jeffrey Tucker → Read More
