Just 10 days ago, I cited Director Terry Gilliam’s film “Brazil” for its dark-comic depiction of a dystopian world so overwhelmed by government bureaucracy and diktats that even the home heating and cooling system of the protagonist was run (and very poorly, at that) by the central-planning authority. And a mere three days after that, I reported on Pennsylvania's Democrat Governor Tom Wolf…

Sure, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez says that men who pose as women are “patriots,” but might there be something out of place in the United States Air Force hosting a drag queen show at their legendary Langley base? On a Sunday, no less. Tim Pearce reports for Daily Wire: “The U.S. military is hosting a drag show at a family-friendly festival at Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE) at the end of July…

Evidently a big fan not only of Chinese authoritarianism, but also of the Cuban gun-grabbing committed by his spirit-animal Fidel Castro, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in 2020 had his bureaucracy “ban” the sale of what he and his leftist allies called “assault-style rifles” -- those seeming to be anything the politicians think look scary. At that time, the actual ownership of said scary…

If you’re one of the many who quickly noticed and took offense to collectivist politicians and their cartoonish media fluffers scrambling to redefine “recession” so it won’t be associated with the insane, immoral, aggressive political decisions that started before Biden took office and which he, the Fed, and politicians nationwide made even worse, imagine being a person who teaches or has taught…

In a new study that offers answers about the negative effects – but avoids the inverted ethics -- of Universal Basic Income, researchers at Harvard University and the University of Exeter (UK) actually present readers with one big, umbrella question: “You needed a study to figure this out?” Entitled, “How Effective Is (More) Money? Randomizing Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) Amounts in the US…

As government systems and government-influenced systems increasingly break down and reveal their predatory, special-favor, immoral and inefficient gangland nature, creative people are starting to do the jobs themselves, and they’re getting things done without – shock! – forcing other people to pay for the things they want. Case in point, the increasing number of reports about Oakland, California…

  From the fall of the Roman Empire to Mao’s Cultural Revolution and FDR’s insane and cronyist “New Deal,” central-planning has been shown to be both immoral and economically disastrous. But politicians measure success differently than we do. For them, it seems that success is about increasing control and influence. And the U.S. Senate offers us a new example of this pathology, in the form…

Hey! Ya know how the competitive market, based on respect for private property and private contracts that are not supposed to be infringed by government, has helped increase food productivity to such an extent that billions of people have been saved from starvation and U.S. agricultural output nearly tripled between 1948 and 2017? Ya know how eastern states such as New Hampshire, the one in…

A recent Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling sheds light on how a media-lauded arm of Leviathan continues to swing its suckers, despite a separate 2020 Supreme Court of the US (SCOTUS) finding that this bureau’s Director was too insulated from removal and represented an unconstitutional violation of the separation of powers doctrine. The recent court decision claims the insulation of the CFPB…

    On June 13, I reported for MRCTV that Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) was floating the idea of a 1,000-percent tax on so-called “assault rifles” – an idea that faux “American Indian” Sen. Liz Warren said she could get behind (despite disarmed Indians being slaughtered by the U.S. government at places like Wounded Knee, SD). Now, we have a follow-up, and some media-related “wrinkles” to…
