  • Scientists Criticize Lockdown Strategy in Great Barrington Declaration

    "In March we panicked," said Dr. Jay Bhattacharya. "Not just in America, the world panicked and threw out the old plan." Dr. Bhattacharya teaches medicine at Stanford University, where he researches the health and well-being of vulnerable populations. With 135 articles published in top peer-reviewed journals, his credentials are impeccable. "The old plan" relied on the time-tested public health measures that successfully eradicated diseases like polio and smallpox, not the total lockdowns implemented in 2020. In response, Dr. Bhattacharya and colleagues from Harvard and Oxford authored the Great Barrington Declaration, which expresses "grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental...

    The Great Barrington Declaration offers a way forward, but do most Americans have the courage to risk their sense of security to maintain enduring liberty?In an era in which every dubious decision is “due to COVID-19,” we hear policymakers repeating the same mantra: “If just one life is saved,” it’s worth relinquishing our freedoms, our sanity, and possibly our future. More often than not, this ethical dilemma is presented without mentioning the obvious trade-offs or long-term consequences.Imagine you’re an administrative dictator. If you could “save just one life” — or even thousands — by crippling the youth, vaporizing a million...
  • Freedom vs. Liberty: How Subtle Differences Between These Two Big Ideas Changed Our World

    Ammo.com ^ | 10/7/2020 | Brian Miller
    The terms "freedom" and "liberty" have become clichs in modern political parlance. Because these words are invoked so much by politicians and their ilk, their meanings are almost synonymous and used interchangeably. That's confusing and can be dangerous because their definitions are actually quite different. "Freedom" is predominantly an internal construct. Viktor Frankl, the legendary Holocaust survivor who wrote Man's Search For Meaning, said it well: Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms to choose ones attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose ones own way...

    XYZ ^ | August 9, 2020 | Mark Moncrieff
    A week ago, on Sunday the 2nd August 2020 at 1:43pm the State of Victoria was declared to be in a State of Disaster. This was of course due to Covid-19. Between the start of February and the 2nd August, 123 people have died with Covid-19 in their body in Victoria. 123! A State of Disaster basically means that the government can use all government resources, including financial to help to alleviate any disaster. Are we in a disaster? In 2018 there were 158,493 recorded deaths in Australia, that works out to 434 deaths a day. As of the 6th...

    Blog and Mablog ^ | 5 Aug 2020 | Douglas Wilson
    Say it with aphorisms. Free men will fight for their liberty, but slaves will not. So if a slave fights, he is already free. Liberty is not porn and pot. Liberty is much praised and rarely treasured. True liberty is greatly praised, and not at all understood. When Mammon is the master, the people are slaves. When liberty is master, then mammon is a servant. The slaves were brought out of Egypt long before Egypt was removed from the slaves. Pharaoh offered a rigorous full employment program. Christians drift into slavery because they have allowed slaves to preach to them....

    House Republicans were asleep at the wheel this week and missed a major piece of gun control legislation buried deep in the original text of H.R. 6395, a $740.5 billion National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) on Tuesdaylegislation they had unanimously voted out of committee. While the House Armed Services Committee vote to move the bill to the Floor of the House of Representatives two weeks ago went swimmingly for interested parties, the road to the finish line was brutal. Hundreds of amendments were proposed, and the parliamentary proceedings to sort through the mess forced members to physically stand on the...

    Its Blaz the impaler. A banner unfurled over the Staten Island Expressway Tuesday shows New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio smirking in a Che Guevara shirt while holding up Lady Libertys severed, bloody head. Its what hes doing to New York, hes severing the head of the greatest city on earth, said the artist behind the eye-grabbing work, Scott LoBaido. The Staten Islander was spurred to take a stab at Hizzoner over his response to the Black Lives Matter protests raging in the Big Apple. New York has turned into a shhole because of this guy, LoBaido said...

    ...Previously polite, law-abiding citizens must unmask themselves and let their voices be heard. Unlike their oppressive opposition, they have little interest in vilifying those who choose to wear a mask for their own reasons. In the 1982 film Gandhi, Ben Kingsley portrayed Gandhi as saying, 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate. Its time to stop cooperating.

    The Pennsylvania Assembly ordered it to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Quaker leader William Penn founding the Colony in 1701 and writing the Charter of Privileges. Quakers were the first and strongest voices to end slavery.  In 1751, Pennsylvania's Assembly declared a "Year of Jubilee" and commissioned the bell to be put in the Philadelphia State House. Speaker Isaac Norris read the Leviticus chapter 25 verse 10: "And ye shall make hallow the fiftieth year, and PROCLAIM LIBERTY THROUGHOUT ALL THE LAND unto all the inhabitants thereof; it shall be a jubilee." "Jubilee" in the Israelite calendar was, after...

    I cannot believe I missed my own anniversary. I joined FR 22 years ago, during the height of the Clinton Impeachment. So many great memories. Met Henry Hyde with some local Illinois Freepers, protested Clinton when he was here in Chicago (He turned around and looked at us when I yelled "How's Monica's throat?") and so much more. Hoping some fellow Class of '98'ers chime in and let me know they're still here.

    Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D-Portland) convened the Oregon legislature into emergency session on Wednesday, which is expected to last two or three days. The agenda has several bills, including HB 4212. That bill includes a clause written by Martha Walters, the chief justice of Oregons Supreme Court, at the request of Brown. This clause will allow Walters to suspend due process for up to sixty days if she deems it necessary during the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of the legislature reining Gov. Brown in after her illegal orders under the CCP coronavirus pandemic, they have proposed to expand...

    How Beautiful We Were by VANDERLEUN on JUNE 23, 2020 A short list. In no particular order. We told our children that any child could grow up to be President. And then we made it come true. We had car shows, boat shows, beauty shows and dog shows. We ran robots on the surface of Mars by remote control. Our women came from all over the world in all shapes and sizes and hues and scents. We actually believed that all men are created equal and tried to make it come true. Everybody liked our movies and loved our television...

    By now you've heard about this week's decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court. Conservative Review's Daniel Horowitz sums them up well in a piece entitled, "Conservatives get massacred by fake 'conservative' SCOTUS": Within 35 minutes today at 10 a.m. Eastern, what some thought was the most conservative Supreme Court of all time concocted a fundamental right to transgenderism in the context of labor law, erased the Second Amendment, and interfered with a state death penalty case, but declined to interfere with a California law that criminalizes law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration agents. Taken in totality, the “conservative” legal movement,...

Granted, this was 2018, but blackface was extremely taboo then. Thats what Schafers joke was about: how Megyn Kelly got herself in a world of trouble by suggesting that blackface was not that big a deal....

    Using the COVID pandemic as an illustration, unsuccessful presidential candidate Hillary Clinton boasted that "women are superior leaders. Out of all the governors called upon to deal with the virus the one who stands head-and-shoulders above the rest is Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan. She is my hero." "Gov. Whitmer was quicker than anyone else to recognize that ordinary people are incapable of making wise decisions on their own," Clinton asserted. "She was the first to neutralize individual self-reliance and the most thorough in establishing the widest authoritarian control ever seen in America. Her ruthless enforcement of her executive directives is...
