    Ep 284 | 'How to Run Wars' | Guests: Christopher Coyne and Abigail Hall

    Ep 284 | 'How to Run Wars' | Guests: Christopher Coyne and Abigail Hall

    Making war is one of the things that government does best, but sometimes even the deep-state elites need a little help figuring out how to invade other countries, kill their people, and plunder their resources, all while propping up American defense contractors and keeping the voting public complacent. Thankfully, a handy how-to manual for all your global domination needs has just hit the shelves. Matt Kibbe sits down with authors Christopher Coyne and Abigail Hall to discuss their new satirical book, "How to Run Wars," which uses humor to shine a light on the bellicose evils of the perpetual war machine and those who seek to profit from it.

    Episode 283 | Sassy with Massie (Part 1) | Guest: Thomas Massie

    Episode 283 | Sassy with Massie (Part 1) | Guest: Thomas Massie

    Apart from being one of the fiercest defenders of liberty in Congress, Rep. Thomas Massie is also one of the most frequent and engaging guests on Kibbe on Liberty. In this special two-part episode, we’re going back through the years to showcase some of Massie’s best conversations with Matt Kibbe. From his sustainable, off the grid farm in Kentucky and his background as an MIT-trained engineer, to his willingness to incur the ire of his colleagues for standing on principle and fearlessly opposing COVID lockdowns, the congressman represents a rare bright spot of hope in the otherwise dismal land of Washington, DC, where the shadows lie.

    EP 282 | Dr. Fauci Tortured Cats | Guest: Anthony Bellotti

    EP 282 | Dr. Fauci Tortured Cats | Guest: Anthony Bellotti

    It’s long been established that cats are libertarian individualists with a distaste for big government, but it turns they may have done more to preserve American lives and freedom than even they realize. Matt Kibbe speaks to Anthony Bellotti, president and founder of the White Coat Waste Project, about how an investigation into feline animal abuse in government labs led to a surprising discovery about the origins of the COVID-19 virus. It turns out that U.S. tax dollars were being funneled to a lab in Wuhan, China, to conduct dangerous gain-of-function research on bat viruses, one of which escaped, causing a worldwide pandemic. Without Bellotti’s vigilance and compassion for animals, we might never have learned the truth about Anthony Fauci’s lies and deceptions. 
    Free the People’s original docuseries, The Coverup, is available now on BlazeTV. Matt Kibbe is uncovering the truth behind the origins of Covid-19. Watch now: https://www.faucicoverup.com/

    EP 281 | Both Republicans and Democrats Love War | Guest: Tulsi Gabbard

    EP 281 | Both Republicans and Democrats Love War | Guest: Tulsi Gabbard

    There was a time when the Democratic Party marketed itself as a home for the anti-war Left, with protesters routinely showing up at Republican events to condemn American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, with the election of Barack Obama, those voices fell silent, and since then, both major political parties have demanded more wars, more drone strikes, and more military spending. Tulsi Gabbard, author of “For Love of Country: Leave the Democrat Party Behind,” rose to national prominence as a veteran and presidential candidate bold enough to stand up to the war machine, and for her efforts she was demonized as a traitor and a Russian asset. In this conversation with Matt Kibbe, Gabbard explains why she parted ways with her old party and what Americans can do to take back their power over the political elite who are supposed to work for them.

    Ep 280 | Independent Creators Can’t Be Stopped | Guests: Joseph Keatinge & Matt Battaglia

    Ep 280 | Independent Creators Can’t Be Stopped | Guests: Joseph Keatinge & Matt Battaglia

    In the debate about cancel culture, it’s become cliché to claim that the powers that be won’t permit certain types of entertainment anymore. Matt Kibbe and Matt Battaglia challenge this conception in a conversation with comics writer Joseph Keatinge, co-founder and chief creative officer at Vast Vision Publishing. Keatinge talks about the freedom and flexibility that comes from cutting loose the corporate bureaucracy and taking control of your own art. Through independent publishing, creators don’t have to answer to moral guardians or timid HR departments. This means that they can focus on telling compelling stories, not checking boxes or enforcing quotas.

    Ep 279 | States Are Laboratories of Liberty | Guest: Eric Brakey

    At the New Hampshire Liberty Forum, Matt Kibbe sits down with Maine state Senator Eric Brakey, who talks about his legislative accomplishments and his transition into the role of executive director of the Free State Project. Brakey explains that state governments are in the best position to be leaders on building mainstream support for new and seemingly radical ideas. Just as Democrat-led states have shifted the Overton window on certain progressive policies, states like New Hampshire and Maine are positioned to demonstrate that liberty-oriented laws can not only pass but can work to improve the lives of American citizens.

Kibbe on Liberty is Saving the World

When the end of the world comes, it will be brought about by a government or governments. Kibbe is helping people recognize the cost of letting liberty be eroded. We need a million more like him, but I’m glad he’s putting it out there.

If you want a libertarian perspective this is the best

Kibbe is like Reason magazine in that he is for the little guy having freedom from government force and coercion.
