The spike in Coronavirus cases in the United States and government orders to keep Americans at home during the crisis is apparently having a side effect that probably everyone could see coming: alcohol sales are exploding. According to USC News, alcohol purchases rose 55% in late March. And there is evidence that marijuana purchases are also on the rise.  What should the government’s response be to Americans with time on their hands taking a deep dive into alcohol and drug abuse?

The brazen U.S. military attack in early January that killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani continues a pattern that puts America on a war-footing with Iran. While conservatives across America cheered the assassination of Soleimani and seem eager for an escalation of tensions with Iran, The Future of Freedom Foundation’s president Jacob Hornberger urges caution. In his latest LibertyView podcast, Hornberger says that those who blindly support the conflict need to learn more about the complicated history between the U.S. and Iran before jumping aboard the war bandwagon.

Perhaps one of the most astonishing aspects of the Trump era has been his rock-solid base of support from self-identifying conservatives who don’t resemble the historical standard of what we know about conservatism. It appears that President Trump’s supporters aren’t concerned about America’s record budget deficits or ballooning national debt. And they don’t seem to care about promoting free trade. For this new generation of conservatives, all that matters is that Trump is the leader of the Republican Party and they are loyal members of his tribe. In our latest podcast, Bart Frazier,...
