John Fund & Libertarians


John Fund and the Truth: On Trial in New York

July 13, 2006

On Friday morning, in the Superior Court of Manhattan, John Fund will face the consequences for his own actions. John Fund lied, slandered, libeled, and used his power in concerted attempts to destroy those who refused to be silenced. He is practiced in the skills of deception having studied under a master of that political art form, Karl Rove. Our trust in justice does not die all at once, it seeps out through hundreds and thousands of small wounds over a long time. The process of Justice in America has not been swift;... MORE


Fund Trial starts in Manhattan Supreme Court

July 13, 2006

The long awaited trial arising from the accusations that John Fund, then and still, the mind behind the editorials pumped out by the Wall Street Journal, convened to impanel a jury on Tuesday, July 11th and today is expected to begin hearing evidence. The trial, which Fund told associates would never happen, is expected to run until Friday of this week but may stretch out longer. Fund was charged with abusing his long time live-in girl friend, Morgan Pillsbury, in early 2002 and managed to evade prosecution on criminal charges... MORE 


How the Libertarians lost Liberty: John Fund, Justin Raimondo, and the history of the Libertarian Party

April 27, 2006

In Justin Raimondo’s article titled, John Fund vs. the Truth, online yesterday morning at antiwar.com, Justin illuminates the many failings of Fund, former WSJ editorial page editor and now columnist for that increasingly questionable publication. If you examine the publications that have been used as tools for planting opinion and values useful to NeoCons for the past 50 years the WSJ will always be high on the list. In the first paragraph of his article Justin links to an article by John Connelly titled, Sex, Lies,... MORE


The Enemy Within: Cato and its Covert Agenda

October 6, 2007

No one at Cato does anything without an agenda. Over the last 30 years Cato has positioned itself as a major ‘think-tank’ in DC, becoming a proponent for policies that further the agenda for federalization when all is said and done. For months the institution behind the white marble walls in Washington DC has remained mostly silent on the Ron Paul Campaign, discussing the ‘real’ candidates and ignoring Dr. Paul. Ask yourself why all of a sudden David Boaz at Cato and the gang at Reason would suddenly... MORE


Libby. Coulter. John Fund. DeLay: Are the NeoCons Toast?

March 11, 2007

I read Mary MacElveen’s article this morning, sent to me by three different buddies who knew I would be interested because of the linkage to John Fund. Just so Ms. MacElveen knows, as does the rest of the world by this point, CNN has no intention to employ Tom DeLay. Gene Gaudette of American Politics Journal called and ascertained that directly and duly informed me of the fact hours ago. He knew I would want to know right away. It is important to remember that John Fund is not a journalist. He is a NeoCon Operative.... MORE


Bob Poole and Privatization, Enemies of Freedom

April 15, 2008

Terri Hill founded TURF, Texans United for Reform and Freedom, to fight for the rights of all Americans. She along with other Texans had been shocked at the move to turn the highways paid for by tax payers in Texas over to corporations, to be operated for corporate profit, on a lease that would last longer than most Texans expect to live. Located in San Antonio, Terri and TURF continue their battle against the looming specter of what is variously known as the Trans Texas Corridor, the North American Union, and the Security... MORE


Why You Should Nominate Mary Ruwart

April 10, 2008

If the Heartland’s 5-state straw poll is any indication, the LP has sadly lost its way and forgotten the core values that brought it into existence nearly two generations ago now. Some few of us still remember the tears that welled in our eyes when we came together to work for the vision that is America. Like no other nomination in our history this one matters and this is why. The original idea was freedom for all of us, man and woman, every race, every kind and part of that cantankerous collation of living, beating spirits... MORE


Freedom Warriors continue the Battle for the Constitution and the Soul of America

February 14, 2008

Ernie Kicks Butt in Arizona: Mark Kicks Butt in Oklahoma We need to defeat the Real ID and we have only until May 11th of this year to keep the states out of participation. Despite what you have heard little has been done until recently to ensure that states pass the legislation that stops the Real ID for their citizens. Now, that effort is in fast forward. The impact of the Real ID is worse than anything you ever heard and billions in profits to the most corrupt corporations in America are riding on its implementation using... MORE


Stealing Truth: The John Fund Back Story

January 16, 2009

If the media had followed the clear rules they had written for themselves, would we now be on the express down elevator to a meltdown of global proportions? Likely not. We would have problems, but we would have seen them more clearly. We needed the truth. We did not get it, for perhaps as many reasons as there are individuals in journalism. The first problem was that journalists so blithely ignored the standards of their profession. The Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) has established a code of ethics. The tenets... MORE


Stealing Truth: The John Fund Back Story (updated)
