DOJ: SPEECH MIGHT NOT BE SO ‘FREE’ IF IT’S AGAINST ISLAM

Thought your free speech rights, those given by God and protected by the U.S. Constitution, were assured in the United States? Well, maybe. A representative of Barack Obama’s Department of Justice has refused – over and over – to answer a question from a member of Congress about the agency’s dedication to freedom of speech. It was during this week’s hearing by the House Constitution subcommittee…

Sneaky Dems Attempt Gun Control In CyberSecurity Bill

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is backing away from his call earlier this week for an illegal strike by police officers, saying now that he didn’t mean a “literal” strike.

1) Obama vs. Individual Achievement

“You didn’t get there on your own,” President Obama told successful Americans last week at a speech in Roanoke, Virginia. For this he has received a flood of criticism—and deservedly so. His words seem calculated to justify higher income taxes on the wealthy. If so, his logic is faulty. As Independent Institute Research Fellow John C. Goodman argues in his latest op-ed, it doesn’t follow that if you didn’t earn your wealth, then Uncle Sam is entitled to it. READ MORE

2) Pentagon Profligacy and Propaganda

Last Wednesday, defense contractors testified at a House committee about their worries concerning the $55 billion automatic defense budget cuts that are slated for January. Spokesmen for Lockheed-Martin, the Aerospace Industries Associations, and others asserted that the cuts would devastate their employees (one called the advertised layoffs “Armageddon”). Some even suggested political reprisals at the ballot box if the cuts weren’t avoided, citing an obscure law—the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act—they claimed would require the contractors to send out lay-off notices to their workers days before the November election. Their claims, however, were disingenuous, according to Independent Institute Research Fellow Winslow T. WheelerREAD MORE

3) The Failing Drug War

The federal War on Drugs continues to focus on drug-interdiction efforts in Latin America, even as the number of drug users in the United States has fallen. There is change at the margins, however. The Drug Enforcement Agency, for example, has created “tactical diversion squads” to investigate prescription drug abuse. And the U.S. State Department has shifted its anti-drug budget toward more legal training and community building in Latin America. READ MORE

The friends of freedom face an uphill battle: they must convince the public that voluntary institutions are superior to the state, that trade is better than extortion, and that peace is morally superior to coercion. Yet it is freedom’s friends who are put on the defensive: the statist status quo is viewed as the given baseline, deviations from which must be justified in the court of public opinion. To many of us, this reality is strange indeed. Why shouldn’t the burden of proof fall on the statist coercers? History and logic would seem to dictate that it should, according to Independent Institute Senior FellowRobert HiggsREAD MORE
