In a recent interview the newly resurgent Covid guru Dr. Anthony Fauci laid down the iron fist: I know we have an independent spirit in the US, he said, but now's the time to do what you're told! That is always the refrain from authoritarians. President Trump's coronavirus advisor, Dr. Scott Atlas, takes a very different approach. Also today, the unbearable coronavirus hypocrisy of our "leaders." And...vaccine news: should we cheer?
20 million Americans are collecting unemployment, and Joe Biden wants a nationwide lockdown to battle a virus that has a 99+% survival rate. There is one immoral and unconstitutional institution that enables this kind of authoritarian madness: The Federal Reserve.
Former vice president Joe Biden has been declared president-elect by the mainstream media and he is wasting no time making good on his promise to lock the country down in the name of fighting Covid. His Covid task force member Dr. Michael Osterholm is recommending a four to six week mandatory national lockdown, paid for by a massive money-printing operation. Will doing the same thing again bring different results? Also today...here's how they are going to force you to take the Covid vaccine. And...election update: Giuliani claims 650,000 illegal ballots cast in Pennsylvania. Is he just blowing smoke?
President Trump's efforts to ensure a fair election process have been demonized by virtually every mainstream media outlet. Even Republicans have by and large abandoned him. But are the legal challenges in places like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania starting to gain traction? Also today, globalist Klaus Schwab tells us we can never have normal again. And...what will Biden's foreign policy look like?
Over-and-Over Nature Creates Uniqueness ... Yet Politicians & "Experts" Want To Rule Over Carbon Copies
By Chris Rossini
This morning, Luke Rudkowski published a great Tweet: "There’s two types of people out there 1. that want to be left alone and 2. others that refuse to leave other people alone. Which one are you?"
That statement encapsulates the seemingly never-ending struggle between Liberty and tyranny. It also places the responsibility precisely where it belongs, on each individual.
'Which one are you?'
Each of us must decide for ourselves.
Should you choose to live a life centered around voluntary and peaceful interactions with others? Or, will you live a life that is centered around aggressive force against your neighbors?
The argument for why a voluntary and peaceful life is far superior cannot be more logical, rational and compelling.
Let's break it down.
First of all, let's consider the physical aspects of our beings. The form. The matter. The seen.
We are each exquisitely unique in our physical selves. There are no carbon copies, we have individual boundaries, and each of us occupy our own individual space in the universe. Wherever we each happen to be at the moment, it's exclusively for us. Where you are, no other human being can be, and vice-versa.
This physical setup appears to be custom-made for individuality and a world of individuals. It's not made for some amorphous blob.
Now let's consider the limitless -- our mental and spiritual selves. The non-form. The unseen.
Once again, we are each exquisitely unique here as well. This is where we are each the masters of our domain.
What you think from one second to the next is all you. What you choose to focus on ... What you choose to attract into your life ... What you want ... What you believe ... It's all yours, and yours alone.
When an event happens in the world, you interpret it and explain it to yourself. Your explanation to yourself may cause you to cry.
But the same event can mean the exact opposite to your neighbor. He may explain it to himself in a way that makes him jump for joy.
A third person can witness the event and not care one way or another.
It's the same event!
Others can attempt to explain what events mean to you, but it is up to you to decide whether to believe them, or not.
You can't place blame on the many modern-day professors, or the media, or the politicians for constantly lying to you. Why did you believe them? You didn't have to believe them. The responsibility is yours alone on who to believe.
We are individuals. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually.
Now, considering all of this, wouldn't it be strange to try to turn this world of individuals into some kind of amorphous blob? Wouldn't it be odd to attempt to force one to be like another? To try to force one to think like another, or act like another?
Over and over, Nature creates uniqueness and you want to create carbon copies?
You're going to try to overturn Nature?
Fortunately, such an idea is impossible. It's very deadly, as history keeps showing us, but impossible nevertheless.
There would obviously no longer be a humanity if it were possible. It's a foolish goal to attempt to try to force something to be something that it is not.
Yet, this anti-human goal occupies the minds of many individuals, and has since at least the beginning of recorded human history.
You can tell, right away, when you're around them. They'll start uttering the words:"There should be a law..." That's the first tell-tale sign that you're dealing with a self-styled re-maker of others.
They're also are very attracted to blob-like diktats:
"Universal" mask mandates.
"Universal" health care.
"Compulsory" government schooling.
These blob-like diktats lead to the creation uneconomic and artificially-created "jobs".
Legions of martinets are unleashed on everyone:
"Fill out these forms."
"Where's your paperwork?"
"Where's your authorization?"
"Do you have a license for that?"
"What about a permit?"
"Is that FDA-approved?"
"No more than 25% capacity."
The martinets are never satisfied. How can they be? Everyone is unique. They're trying to create carbon copies. They've set themselves up for never-ending dissatisfaction.
The attempted invasions proceed right down to the core of every individual life:
"You can't think that!"
"You can't say that!"
"You can't do that!"
This anti-human fantasy imagines some individual "experts" standing high above a universal blob of humanity with the sole authority of making proclamations. Everyone else in this blob must then follow. The "experts" imagine everyone else acting in unison like a school of fish, or as members of an ant colony.
If the "experts" say that XYZ is true, then it's true simply because they said it.
If they say that XYZ is "science," then it is science, simply because they said it.
The "experts" say. Everyone else is to obey.
Those who choose not to obey are to be ostracized. They must be the defective ones. There must be something wrong with them. They must be "re-educated" to obey...without question.
That's the fantasy at least.
Now, considering the aforementioned reality about our individual physical, mental and spiritual uniqueness, is it any wonder why the fantasy can never become a reality?
This fantasy of "rule by experts" goes way (way) back. It's not anything close to being a new idea, despite always being presented as one.
The piles of corpses that have been left in the wake of attempts to implement it have reached the level of 'uncountable.'
Yet no matter how many corpses are piled up, the "experts" never seem to stop coming, and neither do those who want to be ruled by them.
Freedom means the ability to choose. Evidently, there are always those who choose to not leave others alone.
Nevertheless, the questions remain the same for each of us individually: 'Which will you be? Voluntary or force? Liberty or tyranny?'
Liberty is the far superior choice.
The announcement that the US Justice Department would be looking into some aspects of last week's election has elicited screaming and wailing from those convinced that Biden's win is a slam-dunk. Would the mainstream media resistance to investigating possible fraud be the same had Trump appeared to pull off a second term? Also today, is Biden breaking the law by speaking with foreign leaders about what a Biden Administration foreign policy would look like? The answer might surprise you...

The mainstream media has declared former Vice President Joe Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election. However, this does not mean the 2020 Presidential campaign has come to an end. President Donald Trump is continuing his legal challenges to the vote counts in some key states.
The emotional investment of many Americans into the race between Trump and Biden would have shocked the drafters of the Constitution. The Constitution’s authors intended the presidency to be an office of strictly limited powers that would not impact most Americans. The Constitution authorizes the president to administer laws passed by Congress, not create laws via executive orders. The president serves as Commander-in-Chief of the military following a Congressional declaration of war, with no authority to unilaterally send troops into foreign conflict.
The Founders did not intend for the president to set the “national agenda, “ and they would be horrified to see modern presidents assume the authority to order American citizens indefinitely detained and even killed without due process.
The idea that the president should exercise almost unlimited powers is a legacy of the progressive movement. Progressives, who are responsible for the rise of the American welfare-warfare state, have an affinity for a strong Presidency that is not surprising. A government that aspires to run our lives, run the economy, and run the world requires a strong executive branch unfettered by the Constitution’s chains. The Cold War also provided a boost to presidential power, as it justified presidents assuming more unchecked authority in the name of “national security.”
The concentration of power in the executive branch does not mean presidents are all-powerful. For example, even though presidents are judged by the state of the economy, the unelected, unaccountable Federal Reserve Board typically has greater influence over the economy then the president. Presidents often must tailor their economic policies to deal with the consequences of the Fed’s actions. This is why presidents spend so much time and energy trying to influence the “non-political” Fed. Fed Chairs usually, but not always, reciprocate by attempting to tailor polices to be “useful” to the incumbent president.
It has become cliché to say that “politics stops at the water’s edge.” This means no one—not even Members of Congress, should ever oppose or second-guess a president’s foreign policy decisions. However, this rule does not apply to those comprising what has become popularly known as the “deep state”: the military-industrial complex, the national security bureaucracy—including the CIA— congressional staffers, and members of the media. This deep state serves a permanent government and has an agenda it pursues regardless of the wishes of the president or the American people.
The deep state has derailed President Trump’s (modest) efforts to fulfill his campaign promise to pursue a less interventionist foreign policy and end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Members of the deep state were instrumental in the Russiagate hoax and the impeachment of President Trump. Many supported impeachment because President Trump’s actions contradicted the DC “consensus” on US -Ukraine relations and the need for a new Cold War with Russia. President Trump is not the first president to be undermined by the deep state and he will certainly not be the last.
The 2020 election has awoken many Americans to the corruption of the modern welfare-warfare state. These Americans are ripe for the message of liberty. They can help with the vital task of demystifying the US Presidency, destroying the deep state, restoring our constitutional republic, and regaining our lost liberties.
The markets are euphoric over news that a new Pfizer vaccine might have 90 percent effectiveness. Meanwhile, Joe Biden has doubled down on his threat to instill a nationwide mask mandate if he prevails in the ongoing election dispute. Even as Biden assembles his transition team, serious doubts continue to persist on the accuracy of the November 3rd vote. Will Trump get traction with his swing state vote count challenges?
New York Times bestselling author Charles Goyette joins today's Liberty Report to talk about his new book, "The Last Gold Rush…Ever!: 7 Reasons for the Runaway Gold Market and How You Can Profit from It," and about the coming big economic crash. What to do? Watch the program!
With the election results still in limbo two days after the vote was held, and widespread charges of vote fraud, America faces a crisis of confidence in the electoral system that is on the verge of unleashing the mob onto the streets. A delegitimized occupant in the presidency is not the worst thing from a libertarian perspective, but the mob gathering steam is a danger to all. How will it all play out?
