Did GAB’s Kevin Kennedy break the law in John Doe talks with Lois Lerner?

Part 289 of 290 in the series Wisconsin’s Secret War

MADISON, Wis. — The state’s political speech police and their prosecutor partners early on referred to their joint John Doe investigation into conservatives as the “Badger Doe.”

But documents obtained by Wisconsin Watchdog indicate Government Accountability Board director and general counsel Kevin Kennedy early on sought the involvement of federal agencies — including Kennedy’s “good friend” Lois Lerner at the Internal Revenue Service.

The documents raise some serious questions as to whether the GAB violated its own confidentiality statutes as well as the John Doe secrecy

Congress must enforce the First Amendment on IRS targeting

Share

By Dustin Howard at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

The Left’s fervor and furor against their enemies is pervasive. There exists a multi-front war, in which speech, cultural and social institutions and faith are being reviled, marginalized and even silenced. This serves to polarize our country, and empower an alien ideology that strives for cultural hegemony, as they wield intolerance as a sword, ironically, in the name of tolerance itself.

As we see histrionic Mizzou student protesters creating safe zones that reconstitute segregation, communications professors openly threaten student journalists and watch as state governments persecute long held religious understandings of marriage, we must ask: Who has the moral authority to halt these egregious acts? While the solution

With Mass Shootings, the State Makes Us Less Safe

Share

By— Justin Murray at Mises Daily

 

In the wake of last month’s shooting at Umpqua University in Oregon, national debate has once again been sparked over the role of firearm controls. Gun-control laws must be passed, we are told, that target these events and reduce or eliminate their frequency. However, much like most debates in the political realm, convenience and sound bites take the center stage over understanding root causes of violence itself. The debate is further confused by improper data comparison and information gathering techniques, mainly to drive a pre-designed political agenda and not to attempt to solve the homicide problem.

Before we get into the issue of general homicide, it is important to clear a few

Rothbard: Where the Left Goes Wrong on Foreign Policy

Share

By from Mises Wire

Originally published in Inquiry, July 1982.

With every passing year, as memories of the Vietnam War fade from our nation’s historical consciousness, the calls for America to reassert itself in the world arena grow more insistent. A proliferation of national-security think tanks and conservative publicists issue daily proclamations that all the world is a battleground between the United States and its Soviet adversary. The infrastructure of intervention, from Carter’s Rapid Deployment Force to Reagan’s 600-ship navy, forges ahead, unmindful of the legacy of our past interventionistfollies.

Who is there to remind us of those follies? Now that neoconservatism has captured so many of America’s liberals, it seems at times that the left, which can still

How Michigan’s Welfare Population Declined by 70% in 4 Years

Share

 

By Sara Jones /at The Daily Signal

Since Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder assumed office, the number of welfare recipients in the state has declined by a staggering 70 percent, according to a news report.

A total of 64,492 individuals received cash assistance from the state this past August, down from 227,490 in 2011. Snyder, a Republican, took office in January 2011 and was re-elected in November 2014.

Michigan Capitol Confidential, a news site, reported that the decline in welfare recipients could be due to new enforcement of limits on cash benefits. The state has begun enforcing a 48-month lifetime limit for its cash assistance program and a 60-month federal time limit.

White “Privilege” Has Nothing on State Privilege

Share

By at Mises Daily

Cultural Marxism enjoyed a victory last week when University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe resigned after members of the Missouri Tigers football team joined a student movement calling for his resignation. While I fully support the rights of these players to leverage their athletic ability to advocate a cause — as I would support their university if it decided to pull their scholarship — what is concerning is the actual list of demands shared by the cause they joined.

The top priority of the #ConcernedStudent1950 movement was not the resignation of University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe, but that he “must acknowledge his white male privilege.” While I have little sympathy for Mr.

Can the US Dollar Face Down the Chinese Yuan?

Share

By at Mises

[Editor’s note: Yesterday the International Monetary Fund designated the Chinese yuan as one of the global currencies used to calculate the value of Special Drawing Rights. This event may portend a significant reordering of the world’s monetary system, and serve as a recognition that the US dollar’s ongoing status as the world’s reserve currency is not guaranteed. Jim Rickards terms this a “political decision” by the IMF, and discusses what it means both for China and the US.]

Membership in the exclusive SDR currency club has changed only once in the past thirty years.

That change took place in 1999, and was purely technical due to the fact that the German

Economics Is About Scarcity, Property, and Relationships

Share

By at Mises Daily

The other day I was having coffee with a new friend, a retired businessman who had customized luxury cars in California. I mentioned I had recently retired from owning an investment firm and had studied economics for many years, especially Austrian economics.

Like so many people, he said, “I really don’t understand economics and always have been confused by it.”

To which I surprised him with, “Of course you understand economics; it is the thought process you use every day to deal with three things: scarcity, property, and relationships.”

His eyes got big and he said, “Whoa! Say that again.”

“OK,” I said, “Everything in human life is organized around how we make decisions
