Robert Wenzel, R.I.P.

Libertarian economics writer Robert Wenzel has died. His two blogs, EconomicPolicyJournal.com and TargetLiberty.com have for years been among the go-to blogs for libertarian-based economic analysis and libertarian philosophy and commentary. The loss definitely will leave a void, for sure.

Wenzel just put it all out there, his criticisms of the Black Lives Matter movement and Marxism in general, the modern cultural Marxism movement, Keynesian “economics” and socialism, and the present-day Covid scamdemic, as well as his promotion of the libertarian non-aggression principle and the private property society. Such commentary will surely be missed.

And regarding his death, it was apparently unexpected. At least, it was a shock to me, given that he had not mentioned on his blogs any recent illnesses or serious conditions. Tom Woods noted that Wenzel had “died peacefully in his bed.” And then I saw on Murray Sabrin’s blog the same thing, that he had died in his sleep, according to Wenzel’s daughter-in-law. And supposedly he was only 63.

Wenzel didn’t really say much about his personal life. I had the impression that he was either a single bachelor, or divorced. He may have mentioned an ex-wife, but I am not certain about that. So now we know that he had a daughter-in-law, and obviously at least one son. There really is no information about him, no particular obituary (so far), etc. He apparently had died around May 25th, a week ago.

He had been living in San Francisco or the greater SF area, and had given frequent updates on various situations there, such as how Walgreens had to close multiple stores because of government-approved shoplifting, for example. Wenzel had described how security guards or police are only allowed to make shoplifters give back the stolen merchandise at the door, but with no arrests if the merchandise is less than $950.

And he had described over this Year of the Covid Scamdemic how most of the sheeple in SF were masked, even outdoors, on their bike, or walking alone with no one around, or in the car alone. And he described and had video of one confrontation he had with a young male mask-stasi in the elevator yelling at him for not wearing a mask. The elevator stasi guy was hysterical (and I don’t mean “funny” hysterical). I found the post.

Wenzel’s first blog Economic Policy Journal included a lot of informative posts and articles on economics with analysis and commentary. Here is his 2018 book Foundations of Private Property Society Theory. And here is his most recent video from his series “This Week in Economics,” An Introduction to Austrian School Business Cycle Theory.

Also, you might be interested in hearing Wenzel’s 2012 interview with Gary Johnson when Johnson was running for President the first time as a Libertarian (sic) Party candidate.

And I was proud to have my own article, Libertarians for Socialism, on Wenzel’s Economic Policy Journal.

After years of EconomicPolicyJournal.com, Wenzel decided to put the more political, social and philosophical news and commentary on a new, separate blog, Target Liberty. It was there where his thought-provoking commentaries on issues like BLM, criminal justice and government police, the political class, and the insanity of Covid policies are located. He covered many issues.

On the right sidebar toward the top of Wenzel’s Target Liberty, he has a list of links to the “most popular posts in the last 30 days,” including MIT Researchers Infiltrated a Covid-19 Lockdown/Mask Skeptics Community: This is What They Found, and State Department Memo Authorizes and Encourages the Hanging of BLM Flag at All US Diplomatic and Consular Posts. A similar list is at the top right sidebar of his Economic Policy Journal.

Of course, I read Wenzel’s two blogs each day for years, and it’s hard to believe that such blogs will not continue. It is hard to believe that he actually died, without any advance notice. Perhaps someone can let us know what exactly the cause of death was. And if that’s too personal and invasive of me to ask, then never mind. But this really is a shock.

Libertarian, Bitcoin Enthusiasts Indicted by FBI in the “Live Free or Die” State

Several mostly libertarian activist bitcoin enthusiasts were arrested and indicted by FBI in Keene, NH for “wire fraud and participating in a conspiracy to commit wire fraud,” according to Robert Wenzel. Those people indicted include Ian Freeman of the Free Talk Live radio show, Colleen Fordham, Renee Spinella, Andrew Spinella, Nobody (who had changed his name from Rich Paul to “Nobody”), and Aria DiMezzo (a transgender former candidate for Cheshire County sheriff). Freeman is charged with “money laundering and operating a continuing financial crimes enterprise. Freeman and DiMezzo also are charged with operating an unlicensed money transmitting business,” according to Wenzel.

Now, I’m sure that FBI, one of the most corrupt and dishonest government agencies in Amerika, is aware of many, many people, maybe hundreds or even thousands of people, all across the country who could theoretically be charged with some sort of financial disobedience, bitcoin-related or otherwise. As Harvey Silverglate would refer to, most people unknowingly commit “Three Felonies a Day,” and all that. But clearly in my view FBI are targeting these activists for solely political reasons.

I think they are getting Freeman for his Free State Project involvement as well as otherwise in-your-face protests and demonstrations against the State. For example, Freeman’s and Nobody’s protests in front of Governor Chris Sununu’s house and the state attorney general’s house regarding Covid restrictions. They have had demonstrations or protests several times in recent months outside those horrible bureaucrats’ homes. And also, Nobody had a run for governor challenging Sununu, along with Karen Testerman. And Aria DiMezzo ran a losing campaign against the Cheshire County sheriff. I’m not familiar with the other names. So, I’m seeing some connection here. Did Sununu in some way contact crony pals associated with FBI to instigate this action? I’m not accusing Sununu of anything, only asking.

But since when do Swamp-entrenched politicians use the State apparatus, especially the national security apparatus, to go after their political opponents? I’m being sarcastic, of course. We know why the FBI went after Mike Flynn and especially Roger Stone, yet actual criminals like James Comey and John Brennan get away with their crimes.

But, sadly, that’s life here in USSA, Amerika.

OMG, I’ve been very critical of Chris Sununu, especially here and here. Does that mean that he or FBI will go after me now? No, I’m not saying that Sununu is responsible for the FBI’s bogus indictments of some local anti-State activists. I’m just saying that we know Sununu has a lot of clout, especially given his father’s connections with the Bush family and so on. I hope I’m wrong, of course.

The Sununus and the Bushes are a couple of terrible Swamp families, in my view, in addition to the Kennedys and the Clintons. Yech.
