Nancy Pelosi… Five syllables consistently associated with charm, style, and absolute care for the downtrodden. When one hears the House Minority Leader’s name, one never thinks, “smarmy, unctuous, elitist, faux populist.” In fact, it’s often depressingly illuminating to see just how hypocritical those other paladins of the “underclass” are, while Ms. Pelosi continues to walk the righteous path…

It seems as if more and more state legislatures are taking small steps to push back against federal tyranny and reassert what were supposed to be constitutionally-protected state purviews. In April, the governor of Tennessee signed a bill into law that would establish a gold repository in the state, paving the way to allow for a state currency based on the precious metal. In May, the…

When is a fish not a fish? Don’t worry, this isn’t the set-up for a bad joke. The answer is simple. A fish isn’t a fish when the political authorities say it’s not. A recent piece by Veronique de Rugy for Reason and an excellent article by Patrick Mustain for Scientific American just brought this issue to the fore, and, as the internet click-bait meme goes, “you won’t believe the secret…

Hiding in the almost impenetrable shadow of the massive “Brexit” news is a US Supreme Court ruling that is not only important, but also reflects how far afield the members of the court and many US citizens have strayed from the original rationale for government embraced by most of the Founders. On the 23rd, the justices ruled 4-3 against plaintiff Abigail Fisher’s suit objecting to the…

One would be hard pressed to overstate the seismic political import of what happened in the UK last night when the supporters of “Leave” edged “Remain” by 51.9% to 48.1% (17,410,742 to 16,141,241,) handing “Brexit” supporters a monumental victory of shockingly historic proportions. On the vast political stage, the vote shakes the EU to its fiscally bankrupt, crony bankster core; on the local…

The rusty old saw, “What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander,” seems perennially applicable in political-economic circles. Take drones, for example. On June 21, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued its long awaited “rules and regulations” pertaining to the private, commercial use of drones (also known as Unmanned Aircraft Systems, or UAS) over soil in the United States…

After five years and half a billion dollars consumed, the federal government has finally admitted in a new study that it has failed in its Quixotic attempt to eliminate so-called “food deserts." What are “food deserts”? And why did the feds shake down taxpayers to the tune of $500 million in a predictably useless attempt to change them? To answer this Scooby Doo mystery, we need to time-…

    On June 9, the Senate Judiciary Committee, featuring such constitutional luminaries as Senators Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Richard “Dick” Durbin (D-Ill), and Patrick Leahy (D-VT), among others, gave a big high-five to S. 356, a bill that will claim for the US government new, sweeping powers to puree what’s left of the Fourth Amendment faster than an expensive blender…

In a new press release, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) chose to vilify a product that appears to be helping people quit, and avoid, smoking. Their agenda appears to favor power over public health. Less than a month ago, MRCTV reported that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had begun spreading the lie that electronic cigarettes were “tobacco products” - and, thus, should be “…

It sounds like an action movie. Armed police and federal agents bust into a criminal hideout, weapons drawn, bellowing commands; bad guys scramble like eggs. Trouble is, this scenario isn’t the stuff of movies or television. It is a case of the federal government invading private property in order to crush the voluntary sale and purchase of raw milk and food. Since the swearing-in of…
