Meet the hosts

Matt Kibbe is the President and Chief Community Organizer at Free the People, an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty. We reach the “liberty curious” through social media, video, and storytelling. Kibbe is also an Executive Producer at BlazeTV, where he produces the Kibbe on Liberty podcast as well as The Deadly Isms, a documentary series about the dangers of all flavors of authoritarianism. He is the Co-Founder and Partner at Fight the Power Productions, a strategic communications firm focused on video production, social media branding, and compelling storytelling. He is also a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Austrian Economics Center in Vienna. In 2004 Kibbe founded FreedomWorks, where he served as President for 11 years. Steve Forbes said, “Kibbe has been to FreedomWorks what Steve Jobs was to Apple.” Against his better judgment, Kibbe occasionally gets involved in politics, serving as Senior Advisor to a Rand Paul SuperPAC, and creating AlternativePAC to support liberty candidates. Back when Yoda was a teenager, Kibbe worked as Chief of Staff on Capitol Hill, as Budget Director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and at the Republican National Committee. Dubbed “The Scribe” by the New York Daily News, Kibbe is most recently author of the #2 New York Times bestseller, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto. In his spare time he appears on Old Media, including FOX News, MSNBC, CNN and HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. Most of his best material is lifted from his three liberty-minded cats, Roark, Ragnar, and Rearden.

  • Incidents of abuse by National Park Police spark outrage, demands for probe http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2557025 If motels issued guns to their maids, I’m sure the maids would handle unapproved late checkouts in the same manner! Oh wait…maybe they wouldn’t. Unlike how people empowered by government treat serfs, the hotels would have to worry about losing their (voluntary) customer base and going out of business!

  • A new TV show coming out next month called “Colony” shows some promise.  It takes place in Los Angeles in some unknown future.  A large wall envelopes the city, and inside it is a police state.  The story surrounds a man and his family trying to make ends meet.  Society has been split in two:  those who collaborate and those who resist.  Collaborate with who?  They have yet to be revealed, but the evidence provided is some alien race. (I assume, hence the name “Colony”). When one character was asked about the need of the police state, he says, “You have to have some controls, otherwise there would be anarchy.” It shows promise.
