BOOK RELEASE: Libertarian Dialogues: Ten Years at FreedomCocktail

Essays of Eric Wojciechowski over the first ten years of the FreedomCocaktail blog. Available in print for the first time at Amazon! From the Forward of the book: FORWARD In the beginning, there was a friendship that found itself in the hound-halls of Malow Junior High in southeast, Michigan. I can’t quite remember the first… Continue reading BOOK RELEASE: Libertarian Dialogues: Ten Years at FreedomCocktail

The party of “trust the science” sure likes to ignore it a lot

Today we look at the party who is always first to cry, "Trust the science," yet they always seem to be the first to ignore it when the facts run contrary to their preferred narrative. After all, they think men can become women (and vice versa) just be declaring it, a vaccine that doesn't work… Continue reading The party of “trust the science” sure likes to ignore it a lot

Left in an all-out war

The Left is in an all-out war with Constitutional-minded Americans

For today's show, I decided to provide a continuing mountain of evidence that the Left, led by the Biden regime, does not want to see the Constitution win in November. They are in an all out war with Constitutional Americans solely to retain their power and to keep lining their purse-strings. I start with the… Continue reading The Left is in an all-out war with Constitutional-minded Americans

Leftist rhetoric and violence

Leftist rhetoric and violence continues to build in the Biden regime

Today's show is why you should be tuned in every day to The Alan Sanders Show. We get hit with so many individual news stories each day, it's hard to keep track of them all. It's even hard, then, to keep the context of the overall narrative fresh in our minds when we are hit… Continue reading Leftist rhetoric and violence continues to build in the Biden regime

No smoking gun in Martha's Vineyard

There is no smoking gun in Martha’s Vineyard plus emergency powers should cease

Before I get in to the meat of today's show, I open with some of our fine friends across the pond who wanted to acknowledge the presence of President Joe Brandon in London. Mentally unwell Leftists will have you believe Joe Biden has restored respect for the office of the Presidency around the world. Well,… Continue reading There is no smoking gun in Martha’s Vineyard plus emergency powers should cease

Biden on 60 Minutes and more fallout from Martha’s Vineyard

Today we open with some of the sound bites from last night's 60 Minutes show with President Joe Biden. Remember when 60 Minutes would ask tough questions and have even tougher follow-ups? Those days are no longer here, ate least while a Democrat is in office. First, President Biden has been allowed to redefine what… Continue reading Biden on 60 Minutes and more fallout from Martha’s Vineyard

Martha's Vineyard

Who knew Martha’s Vineyard was such a deplorable wasteland of cruelty?

Who knew Martha's Vineyard was such a deplorable wasteland of cruelty? Listening to Leftists and elitists over the last 48 hours has me so confused. I thought it was funny to see them lighting their own heads on fire yesterday, but it's gone to ULTRA levels, now. We start off with Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre,… Continue reading Who knew Martha’s Vineyard was such a deplorable wasteland of cruelty?

Sanctuary Cities in crisis

A border so secure Sanctuary Cities are declaring emergencies

On today's show, we deal with the ongoing crisis related to our open southern border and the ineffectual leadership we have in our Democrat-run cities and in the White House. After years of trying to get some resolution, the governors in Arizona, Texas and Florida and showing us that folks who declare themselves as "Sanctuary… Continue reading A border so secure Sanctuary Cities are declaring emergencies

Biden takes a victory lap

Biden and Democrats take a victory lap while the economy keeps cratering

Well, I guess I should be happy to say I was right on target with my prediction at the close of yesterday's show. President Joe Biden, with a disastrous core CPI number for August and a tanking stock market, took to the White House lawn and gave himself and democrats a collective high-five! He really… Continue reading Biden and Democrats take a victory lap while the economy keeps cratering

Inflation is worse, but the White House is holding a celebration

We open today with the monthly inflation report and it is not good. Before I dive into the numbers and bring you the reality of just how bad it is, I remind you through a montage of soundbites what the "Wizards of Smart" in the Biden regime have been trying to tell us since May… Continue reading Inflation is worse, but the White House is holding a celebration

No one made you take it
Current Events, Just musing

Very soon public health will say, “No one made you take it.”

Today's show returns to a discussion over public health and the one-size-fits-all approach they took in dealing with the pandemic. It's obvious, by now, we were sold a bill of goods. Websites are being updated. Therapeutics which were mocked even earlier this year have been quietly added to the NIH and CDC websites. Fact-check statements… Continue reading Very soon public health will say, “No one made you take it.”

A series of unfortunate events for Leftists including Dr. Fauci and Karine Jean-Pierre

To wrap up the week, I wanted to hit several stories that all share a somewhat common thread. Each news items reveals how the Left is dealing with a series of unfortunate events. First up, and to continue illustrating the harm caused by a media no longer interested in truth, I share a piece revealing… Continue reading A series of unfortunate events for Leftists including Dr. Fauci and Karine Jean-Pierre

4th Estate

Division happens when the 4th estate abdicates their responsibility

Today I wanted to talk about the 4th Estate and how they have abdicated their responsibility to tell the truth. Our Founding Fathers were so concerned about keeping the government honest, they literally carved out a protection for the press to be able to report on government without fear of reprisal. But, when the Legacy/mainstream… Continue reading Division happens when the 4th estate abdicates their responsibility

More Biden DOJ leaks and a media still conflating news to fit their narrative

Before I get to the meat of today's show, I did have to open with more examples of the dangers of magic-thinking on behalf of our elected (or appointed) leaders. The EU, after embracing short-sighted energy policies, are asking people to limit their use of electricity or gas in order to (where have you heard… Continue reading More Biden DOJ leaks and a media still conflating news to fit their narrative

Dangers of magic-thinking in politicians and a Special Master granted

Today's show opens with a review of term I use often when dealing with Leftists – magic-thinking. It goes hand-in-hand with another phrase I often use to describe the juvenile thinking and behaviors in the current regime. While magic-thinking is great for actors and for young children who engage in make-believe, it is dangerous when… Continue reading Dangers of magic-thinking in politicians and a Special Master granted
