Congressional Incompetence in Its Trump-Shooting Investigation
Future of Freedom Foundation

1h ago
Members of Congress are besides themselves over the testimony of Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle regarding the near-assassination of former president Trump. They are upset that Cheatle was unable to provide them with adequate explanations as to what appears to be incompetence at best and willful blindness, conscious indifference, or complicity at worst on the part of the Secret Service. But if incompetence is the right explanation, it is matched by the incompetence of Congress in its supposed investigation into the shooting. After all, Cheatle wasn’t even there. Therefore, anything t ..read more

Why the U.S. Secrecy Surrounding Evan Gershkovich?
Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger
1h ago
Last Friday, a Russian court, operating in secret, convicted Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich of espionage and sentenced him to 16 years in a Russian penal colony. Ever since Gershkovich’s arrest in March 2023, I have written extensively about the case: https://www.fff.org/?s=Gershkovich The Journal and U.S. officials have responded to the verdict and sentence in the same way they have responded ever since Gershkovich’s arrest. They deny that he is a spy and say that he was simply doing his job as a reporter when he was arrested. They also say that Russia is simply engaged in taki ..read more

Living with Perpetual Violence
Future of Freedom Foundation

Notwithstanding the near-assassination of former President Trump, I could not help but find a bit of humor in the response of Republicans, Democrats, and mainstream-press commentators to the shooting — the response that says that there is no room for political violence in American society. Are they kidding? How can any reasonable person not guffaw at that statement? Ever since the U.S. government was converted into a national-security state form of government after World War II, perpetual political violence — as well as the threat of political violence — has formed the basis of America’s gove ..read more

Why Did They Immediately Shut Down the Investigation into JFK’s Assassination?
Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger
5d ago
Given the attempted assassination of former President Trump, I can’t help but think back to the assassination of President Kennedy — and, specifically, to how determined U.S. officials were to immediately shut down any investigation into the assassination. An NBC News article dated October 27, 2017, stated that FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover issued a memo on November 24, 1963, only two days after JFK was killed, that stated, “There is nothing further on the Oswald case except that he is dead. The thing I am concerned about, and so is Mr. Katzenbach, is having something issued so we can convince ..read more

Biden’s Delusion of Running the World

Note: FFF will be at FreedomFest in Las Vegas starting tomorrow (Wednesday) through Sunday. Therefore, there will be no FFF Daily or my blog published for the rest of this week. We will resume publication on Monday, July 15. ***** While Biden’s critics are focusing on what appears to be some major cognitive issues for the president, very few of them, if any, have focused on the following statement in his interview with George Stephanopoulos: “I’m running the world.” Running the world? Sounds pretty delusional to me. But apparently not to the mainstream press or Biden’s statist critics. To the ..read more

The National Security State Was Immune for Its Assassination of JFK
Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger
2w ago
No one should have been surprised over the Supreme Court’s recent ruling of absolute immunity for official acts carried out by a U.S. president. The federal judiciary has long held that the U.S. national security state — i.e., the Pentagon, CIA, and NSA —  is immune from civil or criminal liability for its illegal acts, so long as such acts are ostensibly intended to protect “national security.” Given the national-security establishment is immune in such instances, it would have appeared somewhat unusual for the Supreme Court to not accord the president with the same privilege. Consider ..read more

The Perfect Solution for the Presidential Race

I have the perfect solution for the presidential race. Owing to President Biden’s obvious diminished mental faculties, many people have concluded that it would not be in the interests of the country for him to be reelected. I think that deep down Biden agrees, but he doesn’t want to drop out of the race because he feels that he would be handing the presidency to Donald Trump, which, he believes, would be worse. For his part, Trump surely must realize that despite Biden’s diminished mental faculties, Biden could still end up winning the race, given that so many Americans are convinced that a T ..read more

Does Biden’s Degraded Mental State Matter?
Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger
3w ago
Most everyone, especially Democrats, is expressing alarm over President Biden’s mental state after his debate performance last night. Biden, who later said that he was suffering from a cold, displayed attributes of severe mental decline. Many Democrats are even saying that Biden needs to drop out of the presidential race now so that the Democrats have plenty of time to promote a new candidate before the November election. While critics are focusing on the political ramifications of Biden’s apparent mental decline, the real issue is the fact that he will still be president for the next five mo ..read more

Tonight’s Debate Is Over Power, Not Freedom
Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger
3w ago
Make no mistake about it: tonight’s presidential debate between President Biden and former President Trump is simply about power. Who is going to wield the reins of power over the welfare-regulatory-warfare state? Will it be Biden and the Democrats or will it be Trump and the Republicans? Which ones will wield the power to tax, regulate, control, direct, command, conscript, sacrifice, torture, or assassinate us? Equally important, which ones will wield the power to give us tax-funded welfare largess, including Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, educational grants, subsidies, ba ..read more

The Right of Private Property in a Healthcare Crisis
Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger
3w ago
During the Covid crisis, the federal government and state governments imposed mask mandates, vaccine requirements, and lockdowns on private businesses. Such measures were, of course, illegitimate exercises of governmental power. As I have long pointed out, however, the ultimate solution to such measures lies not in playing an endless game of whack-a-mole against them but rather to constitutionally separate healthcare and the state entirely at both the federal and state levels, just as our ancestors constitutionally separated religion and state. Once federal and state governments are prohibite ..read more
