An Orwellian Nightmare: Patriotic Veteran’s Constitutional Rights Revoked After Criticizing Liberal Rag

The Orwellian nightmare is unfolding all throughout the United States, but the state of Michigan just might be leading the pack. After a former Christian pastor was sentenced to prison time for distributing jury nullification pamphlets in June, a patriotic military veteran now faces a day in court for merely having the gall to criticize his local paper. Jim Chiodo of the West Michigan Republicans has been a long-time tea party leader in the state of Michigan. He is especially concerned with media bias, and has been working diligently to expose his local newspaper. For doing so, a reporter levied a restraining order against him which included a gag order and the revocation of his concealed carry permit. The proud military veteran can no longer even hold guns in his own home. Allies of Chiodo, who organized a GoFundMe page on his behalf, are calling the measure a strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP) designed to intimidate a pesky activist out of holding public figures accountable. This happened after… Keep Reading

Anti-Trump Leftists More Big Brother Than Trump

Back in January, a two-word phrase uttered by Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway gave George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four its biggest sales boost in years. In response to White House secretary Sean Spicer’s assertion that, contrary to the mainstream media’s head-count, citizens who attended the Trump swearing-in represented the “largest audience” ever to appear at an inauguration, Conway defended his claim, stating that he was merely giving out “alternative facts.” For many on the anti-Trump left, this phrase was evidence that Big Brother had arrived in the White House, and, perhaps to understand the nature of the “beast” in the oval office, (one purchaser called Nineteen Eighty-Four the “Perfect Primer for Potus 45”) purchased en masse copies of Orwell’s 68-year-old novel, making it a best-seller on Amazon. Pundits went further in the comparison than merely Trump abusing language. For mainstream media journalists, the administration was trying control information rather than sharing it. Keep Reading

Facebook As Big Brother: The Liberty Conservative Gets Censored By Thought Police

On Friday, we published an article titled ‘Cato VP Attacks Ron Paul, Calls His Ideas a “Hideous Corruption Of Libertarian Ideas”‘ written by senior contributor Alex Witoslawski. As the article was beginning to gain traction and go viral, Facebook decided to censor it—issuing temporary bans for anyone who merely shared the writing. Dozens of people have reported being censored immediately after sharing the article. Some of the error warnings suggested that malware could have been involved, but that was a deception. Rather than admitting to their practice of muzzling speech, Facebook apparently gives random error messages to baffle users and throw them off the trail. Most of the people afflicted were put out of commission for two days, unable to share links to content on the social media platform. From a strictly libertarian perspective, Facebook has the right to act in completely abhorrent and disgusting ways. Conversely, we have the right to expose the truth about this entity and work to build consumer pressure against their reprehensible policies until… Keep Reading
