The Michigan flavored vape ban is in full effect. Anyone residing in the state, regardless of age, can no longer buy electronic vape flavors other than tobacco. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer looks to protect children from these nicotine products at the expense of everyone else, especially those attempting to quit smoking. Over the weekend, I ran into Steve Johnson, the Republican state representative from the 72nd district of Michigan. He made clear that he is working against the governor to restore sensibility and liberty to this vape ban.
The Hong Kong protests rage on, but the media is mostly quiet. The slow demise of the territory’s liberty evades headlines for weeks on end. However, the situation only continues to heat up. Freedom is dying in Hong Kong, slowly but surely. The Chinese government speeds up the process with its deployment of 6,000-8,000 new troops.
The nanny state is back again, swinging its cudgel of liberty-hating prohibition as forcefully as ever. This time, it’s coming for your Juuls to combat the so-called “vaping epidemic”. Hide your pens and hide your pods because America will soon be going full 18th amendment on your electronic nicotine devices. Online news is all over the phenomenon, but their reporting on the six vaping deaths is far from accurate. Rather, it’s a horrendous misrepresentation that will cost Americans a basic human right.
The American gun control debate rages on, hot as ever. Liberals show no sign of relenting when it comes to taking away the rights of Americans to defend themselves against the state. However, thanks to the miracle of 3D printing, gun control is dead in the water. The most recent blow to gun control via 3D printing takes the form of a 30 round Glock magazine made completely out of plastic.
After about a week of questioning the official story of Jeffrey Epstein’s final moments, Americans faithfully moved on to far less important stories. The Epstein case has fallen into the abyss of old news and only resurfaces to confirm the mainstream narratives that, yes, the guards fell asleep, the camera footage outside the cell is completely unusable, and Epstein signed a will only two days before his death. Yet recent drone footage of the Epstein’s island in the U.S. Virgin Islands is leading some to believes that Epstein may still be alive.
