Governments Will Impose New Lockdowns If they Think they Can Get Away with It

by Ryan McMaken This year’s stay-at-home orders and lockdowns imposed by governments on their populations represent a watershed moment in the history of the modern state. Before March 2020, it is unlikely that many politicians—let alone many ordinary people—thought it would be feasible or likely for government officials to force hundreds of millions of human beings to “self-isolate.” But, it turns out governments were indeed able to force a sizable portion of the population to abandon jobs, religious practices, extended families, and community life in the name of “flattening the curve.” Whether through fear manufactured by the news media, or through outright threats of punishment, business owners shuttered their shops and offices, churches closed down, and schools abandoned th...

After Defunding the Police, Minneapolis City Council OUTRAGED by Rise in Crime & Lack of Police Presence

by The DC Patriot Remember when the Minneapolis City Council voted to disband and defund the police? Now they’re upset that there are no police. You can’t make this idiocy up anymore America. Now that the George Floyd charade has passed, and it’s came out that his death was the result of a drug overdose, it looks as though Al Sharpton and the gang no longer have a need for the Twin Cities. Their riot-ravaged neighborhoods and crime-ridden streets don’t fit the preferred narrative, so they’re being ignored. Enter a city council meeting where the Police Chief was being questioned, here you go America. Enjoy the shit show. Council members pressed Police Chief Medaria Arradondo about the uptick in crimes that included daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults, shootings and str...

2021: The Year of the Deadliest Vaccine

By: Gary D. Barnett “There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good.” “There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them, anyway.” Dr. J. Anthony Morris, former Chief Vaccine Control Officer and research virologist, U.S. FDA In this country, the mass vaccination of children at voluminous levels is nothing short of unmitigated child abuse or worse. In addition, vaccinating the old by introducing toxic viruses through vaccines that also contain poisonous and dangerous brain-altering adjuvants, is certainly criminal, but also borders on the concept of premeditate...

Debt is the Real Pandemic

Written by Ron Paul According to the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest “Update on the Budget Outlook,” this year’s $3.3 trillion federal deficit is not just three times larger than last year: it is the largest federal deficit in history. The CBO update also predicts that the federal debt will equal 104 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) next year and will reach 108 percent of GDP by 2030. The CBO update also shows that the Social Security, Medicare, and highway trust funds will all be bankrupt by 2031. This will put pressure on Congress to bail out the trust funds thus further increasing the debt. This year’s spike in federal spending was caused by the multi-trillion dollar coronavirus relief/economic stimulus bills passed by Congress and signed by the president...

The Siren Song of Social Security and Socialism

Written by Jacob G. Hornberger This month marks the 50th anniversary of the democratic election of Chilean President Salvador Allende and President Richard Nixon’s order to oust him from power. From that point on, the CIA did everything it could to ensure that Allende did not make it to the next presidential election. The CIA’s efforts ultimately resulted in the 1973 military coup that left Allende dead and that gave Chile a new ruler — the brutal unelected U.S.-supported rightwing military dictator Augusto Pinochet. Why did U.S. officials deem it necessary to destroy the democratic system of a country thousands of miles away from the United States? Socialism. U.S. officials were convinced that socialism was enveloping the world and that it threatened to ultimately take over ...

The Evil of Fiat Money and the Fed

Written by Jacob G. Hornberger The headline of a Washington Post article last June read, “She Was the Last American to collect a Civil War Pension — $73.13 a Month. She Just Died.” The article was about Irene Triplett, a daughter of a Civil War veteran who had just passed away. That, of course, is pretty shocking in and of itself. Who would ever think that a child of a Civil War veteran would still be living in our time? But what also struck me was the amount of the monthly pension she was receiving — $73.13. That doesn’t appear to be a very generous pension, except that it was — and would have been through the rest of her life had the Franklin Roosevelt regime not have destroyed the monetary system that the Constitution established. Let’s go back to 1907. The U....
