Joseph Ladapo: Hero of the Pandemic

What we learn from Joseph Ladapo’s book “Transcend Fear” is that he has been a warrior against pseudoscience from the very beginning of this pandemic.

The Covid/Crypto Connection: The Grim Saga of FTX and Sam Bankman-Fried

FTX, founded in 2019 following Biden’s announcement of his bid for the presidency, by the son of the co-founder of a major Democrat Party political action committee called Mind the Gap, was nothing but a magic-bean Ponzi scheme. It seized on the lockdowns for political, media, and academic cover. Its economic rationale was as nonexistent as its books.

Gone Viral: How Covid Drove the World Insane

I would rank Justin Hart’s book among those that should be considered a staple reading on the covid epoch. It’s as much a medical and political history as it is a psychological study in mass hysteria.

Judge Orders Fauci to Cough It Up

At issue is whether and to what extent the government itself has had a hand in encouraging tech companies to squelch speech. If so, this is unconstitutional.

A Deeper Dive Into the CDC Reversal

Two years later the CDC has embraced the Great Barrington Declaration rather than doing a “quick and devastating takedown” as Francis Collins and Anthony Fauci called for the day after its release.

Mozart, Mediocrity, and the Administrative State

Every highly productive person – we don’t even have to speak of geniuses here – often ends up surrounded by resentful and mediocre people who have too much time on their hands. They use whatever limited talents they have to plot, confound, confuse, and ultimately wreck their betters. The demand to “comply” is always the watchword: it’s a tool of destruction.

The Astonishing Implications of Schedule F

The gradual rise of the 4th branch of government (the administrative “deep state” bureaucracy) which is very much the most powerful branch – has reduced the American political process to mere theater as compared with the real activity of government, which rests with the permanent bureaucracy. 

Why Is CDC Trying to Put a Mask on Your Face Again?

The massive political power for unelected bureaucrats to arbitrarily dehumanize Americans with mandates, fines, lockdowns, and prison at whim is what the Biden Administration, DOJ, and CDC are now fighting for.

The Unmasking of America

In my lifetime, I’m not sure I can remember a single other time when a federal government rule imposed upon an entire country, one that affected so many people on a daily basis, was suddenly declared to be completely illegal – not just newly illegal in light of new data but illegal all along.

Elon Musk’s Big Move on Twitter

Elon Musk’s exciting and dramatic move represents a bold attempt to overthrow the regime of control, propaganda, and enforced opinion as manufactured by the administrative state.

Is Liberalism a Lost Cause?

Were those of us who, after the end of the Cold War, the rise of the Internet, and the turn of the 20th century, celebrated the inevitably of progress and freedom similarly wallowing in a negligent naivete about the evils that were waiting for the right moment to unleash themselves on the world?

Fauci’s United Front Is Collapsing

Eban’s article adds tremendous detail about the great lengths to which our Fauci-led cabal of officials worked hard to suppress dissent on the question of lab-vs-natural origin.

How Coercion Compromised the Vaccine

The vaccine for this virus should never have been mandated. Having done so, public health has done itself deep harm. One wonders if the reputation of vaccines in general can recover.
