Advocate Jared Published in The Washington Examiner on Keystone XL

Advocate Jared Meyer was published in The Washington Examiner on the economic effects of approving the Keystone XL pipeline.

President Obama has three new reasons to approve the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline. The pipeline would bring 830,000 barrels of Canadian crude oil per day from Alberta to U.S. refineries, which would lead to economic growth and job creation in the United States.

Advocate Matthew Published in The Hill on Republican Attempt to Block Norwegian Air

Advocate Matthew La Corte was published in The Hill on an ongoing attempt to prevent Norwegian Air from offering low-cost flights in the US.

If Republicans want to remain relevant, they must differentiate themselves from the crony capitalism and government favoritism that led to the GOP debacles of 2006, 2008, and 2012. Sadly, not enough seem to be heeding that lesson. With House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s (R-Va.) stunning primary loss to an opponent who ran on an anti-cronyism platform, maybe more Republicans will honor their stated principles. The Senate minibus is the first test.

Editor Casey Published in C4SS on Privilege

Editor Casey Given was published by the Center for a Stateless Society responding to Kevin Carson’s critique of his previous article on privilege.

As pleasing as it may be for libertarian anarchists to pat themselves on the back for being aware of their privilege, the state will continue to oppress. Anarco-capitalists may conjure up an ideal world in their head where such oppression does not exist, but the real challenge for any activist is implementing their vision in reality.

Advocate Matthew Published by CEI on TSA’s Body Scanners

Young Voices Advocate Matt La Corte was published by the Competitive Enterprise Institute on the FCC’s proposed rule to allow in-flight cell phone use.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) uses more than 700 full-body imaging scanners in 160 airports nationwide. In addition to the empirical evidence that shows they don’t actually make us safer and the questions on the intrusion of traveler privacy, the TSA is violating the federal Administrative Procedure Act. Next Tuesday, June 24, marks the one-year anniversary of the public comment deadline on body scanners and the TSA is still failing to comply with federal law and a federal court’s order.
