“Who is this Mueller guy? Should I be concerned?” Overheard at a cafe in my hometown on April 18, 2019, the day the Russia report by the special counsel was released and the news generated a rare Washington, D.C., headline on the web site of our Gannett-owned daily newspaper in rural northern California.

FREEDOMFEST 2019 | JULY 17-20, 2019 | LAS VEGAS
JOIN US for the BIGGEST liberty conference of the year where free minds meet to celebrate
“great books, great ideas, and great thinkers” in an open-minded environment.
200 SPEAKERS. 120 EXHIBITORS. AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE....JUST LIKE YOU
OUR 2019 THEME:
The Wild West...Manifest Destiny...Western Expansion...The Gold Rush...
Hollywood has given us romantic images of the "Wild West"...the rugged individualist making his fortune in a vast wilderness...cowboys riding their steeds across the plains...fearless pioneers forging across the country in covered wagons and handcarts...stagecoaches and the Pony Express....the "Wild West" is seen as an incredible period of personal freedom and opportunity to pursue self-interest...
But there was also danger, violence and oppression...Bloody battles between settlers and Native Americans, the latter ultimately oppressed and pushed from their lands...Robberies at banks, stagecoaches and trains, with tales of vigilante justice, outlaws and gangs, duels...Marshalls and their deputies forming posses to round up the "bad guys"...Saloons where people gathered to drink whiskey, play poker, visit the brothels...
Was the Wild West a time of liberty and opportunity? Or a time of anarchy and violence? Or both?
We'll visit this exciting theme at FreedomFest this year, explore the real history with experts, learn what are the "Wild Wests" of today, plus how we can benefit from the positive lessons of the Old West.
All this in addition to our famous lineup of sessions that go beyond politics (though we do have plenty of that!) into economics, investing and personal finances, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, education reform, taxation, criminal justice reform, healthcare and healthy living, science, technology and digital privacy, not to mention the Anthem Film Festival - a full film festival INCLUDED in your FreedomFest registration.

“It's Burning Man for Libertarians, or a Gathering of the Lost 10 Tribes. It's a ‘Jerusalem dig’ for agnostics and God-seekers alike. Or a World's Fair for Alternative Answers...but always fun.”

Floyd Brown, Western Journalism
“I’m counting the days until next year’s festival. Literally. 360 to go….”

He called himself a “progressive,” supported the New Deal, and in 1944 campaigned nearly full time on his own dime for Franklin Roosevelt, but Orson Welles probably had more in common with Howard Roark, protagonist of Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead than FDR and his public works projects. Like Roark, Welles was a genius, a visionary,…
