    International Man: In practically every country, the allowable limit for cash withdrawals and transactions continues to be lowered. Further, rampant currency debasement is lowering the real value of these ridiculous limits. Why are governments so intent on phasing out cash? What is really behind this coordinated effort? Doug Casey: Let me draw your attention to three truths that my friend Nick Giambruno has pointed out about money in bank accounts. #1. The money isn’t really yours. You’re just another unsecured creditor if the bank goes bust. #2. The money isn’t actually there. It’s been lent out to borrowers who are...

WINDSOR, Ontario (LifeSiteNews) — A Canadian police officer who donated $50 dollars to the Freedom Convoy last year was told by an adjudicator he must work 80 unpaid hours as punishment. Last Thursday, Constable Michael Brisco of the Windsor Police Service in a penalty hearing was given his sentence by retired Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Superintendent Morris Elbers. Elbers said the $50 donation was a “serious” violation and that the hours will be worked on vacation or rest days. “As a police officer,...

    I am a libertarian. To me, freedom looks like the essential glue or fabric for society. Freedom needs discipline. I speculate that my poet’s etymological analysis of the word “freedom” can give us both freedom and discipline in the one word. To do this, I first suggest that the roots of the word “freedom” can lead us to call it the home or homes where we can feel free. For me today, the word "freedom" combines the adjective "free" with the Latin word "domus" or home to mean a home or homes where someone can feel free. This is an...
  • ‘Ambitious’ Biden regulation would 'force' most Americans out of gas cars, critics say

    The Center Square ^ | 5/17/23 | Casey Harper
    (The Center Square) – Will the Biden administration’s latest energy regulations force Americans out of gas vehicles and into more expensive electric cars? Lawmakers in the U.S. House held a hearing Wednesday tackling that key question. The hearing, held by the Oversight Committee’s Economic Growth, Energy Policy, and Regulatory Affairs Subcommittee, focused on newly proposed Environmental Protection Agency tailpipe emission rules that the federal agency itself called “ambitious.” The EPA projects the proposed regulation would mean that fully electric vehicles make up two thirds of all new "light duty" and 46% of new medium-duty vehicle sales by 2032. The EPA,...

    The president hates America. No? Then why is he, and his Democratic Party, systematically taking down this nation? Leaders who love their country don’t try to leave it on the ash heap of history. Konstantin Kisin, a Russian-British satirist, recently said on Bill Maher’s show that “people in other parts of the world are not teaching their young children to hate their own country.” Maher, a man of the left, agreed. “This country,” he said, “is better off than a lot of people who are native to it” are willing to admit. It cannot be argued that there is not...

    There's a scene in the Liam Neeson movie "Taken" where he's on the phone with his daughter. Men are there to kidnap her and she's a world away from him in Europe. As a former intel agent, he knows what's going to happen and realizes there's no way to stop it. As much as he'd love to come up with a way for his daughter to escape or fight off the assailants, he knows the best thing he can do is to prepare her by telling her the truth. "Now, the next part is very important — they're going to...

    Margaret Thatcher became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom forty-four years ago today on May 4, 1979. She fully understood how freedom is at the core of the many factors we must consider in protecting national strength. Her words prove it: "I love argument. I love debate. " “……… no government can do anything except through people, and people must look after themselves first. It is our duty to look after ourselves and then, also, to look after our neighbours.” ” …….. we must build a society in which we encourage rather than restrict the variety and richness of...

    Denver Gazette ^ | Apr 30, 2023 | Jon Caldara
    If you’ve opened your property tax assessment you’ve already had your coronary. Your property value has gone up between 30% and 70%.. That means because the Legislature, under Democrat Gov. Bill Ritter, froze mill levy rates (preventing them from lowering) and because voters foolishly repealed the Gallagher Amendment in 2020, your property taxes are going to go up some 30% to 70% next year. But don’t worry. The same people who have put you in this bind are going to pantomime rescuing you just as the clock runs out on their legislative session. What heroes. The Colorado state Legislature, with...

    Hello Mr. President, The key to the continuation of MAGA after your 2024-2028 term will be your Vice President for your 2024-2028 term. Because your term will be successful, your VP will be almost a shoo-in for the President in the 2028 election. As I've said, your VP for the 2024 election doesn't have to be a RINO like Bush or Pence to capture a part of the vote. You will win 2024 in a landslide. Your VP MUST be a TRUE PATRIOT who is in your administration for only one reason: TO MAGA BY RECOVERING AMERICA'S FREE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC....

Ahead of the event hosted by the Syracuse College Republicans in partnership with Young America’s Foundation, students destroyed fliers and posted messages critical of Park and the College Republicans in an online forum. Park, who delivered her speech on Apr. 5, “has criticized concepts like political correctness, trigger warnings and ‘woke culture’ in her career,” according to the student newspaper, The Daily Orange.

    Homeowners across Colorado are bracing themselves for a hefty increase in their property tax bills. This is the year county assessors re-value homes and properties. On Wednesday, those assessors warned homeowners that the values are increasing from 30% to more than 60% in some counties. ... "The fact is that there is no reprieve for homeowners this year. From corner to corner of Douglas County and probably the state, all values have gone up quite significantly. If it's rural, if it's suburban, if it's large, if it's small, if it's expensive or inexpensive, all properties in Douglas County in the...

When asked to rate Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) performance in the first hundred days, Pelosi said, “You had seen us move to expanding freedom on our country. We were very proud in the last term to have marriage equality with the Respect for Marriage Act passed. Then you see the Supreme Court reversed freedom and go back.”

    Even in many pro-gun counties, government employees who aren’t law enforcement don’t get to carry guns at work. In many cases, it’s not a huge deal. Many workers are in protected buildings and they wouldn’t carry a gun anyway. Others have to travel for work, often in sketchy parts of town while being responsible for a lot of expensive equipment. They’re a target. Yet one Florida county is looking to possibly change that. The Manatee County Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to adopt a new policy allowing county employees to carry firearms at work. Commissioner James Satcher first made the proposal...
