Young Americans for Freedom, an organization founded by William F. Buckley Jr. that boasts a presence on college campuses across the country, has lost its Baylor University chapter over their perceived protection of corporate interests at the expense of the American people.
Zachary Miller, former chairman of the Baylor Young Americans for Freedom, believes that YAF has lost its way by advocating for policies that harm the American worker and the cause of liberty.
According to a letter written by Miller and sent to YAF Executive Director Kyle Ferrebee, the board of the Baylor YAF voted unanimously to disassociate themselves from the national organization and will now call themselves the “Baylor Bull Moose Society.”
“This decision is the result of discussions which preceded but were ultimately concluded by your revocation of my YAF membership on January 8, 2021 citing ideological differences,” Miller says.
“When I started this chapter, I committed to making it a place where conservatives could learn about and express ideas that served to further the common good of the American people. In light of your recent acts of aggression against our chapter, it has become clear that YAF has no tolerance for conservatives concerned with the furtherance of said good.”
“Our goal is to promote conservative ideas which aid the American worker, preserve and promote the American family, uplift the poor and downtrodden, and ensure that Americans of traditional Christian faith can freely serve God. We have no interest in promoting a corporatist conservatism which is chiefly concerned with protecting the interests of wealthy progressives intent on destroying this sacred American way of life.”
“In this period of unprecedented agglomeration of corporate power, YAF has decided to advocate for the protection of said power and profits to the detriment of working Americans and the common good of our polity. Any conservative who dares to object is attacked and ostracized.”
“The future does not belong to those who cling desperately to the dead consensus,” Miller continues. “We will not return to the days of free trade absolutism, unrestricted immigration, endless foreign wars, and stagnant wages. We will not return to a corporatist conservatism which openly disdains the very Americans it relies on for power. The future belongs to those conservatives who understand that the chief aim of our movement ought to be the preservation and promotion of the liberty and welfare of everyday Americans.”
The entire letter can be read here. The name “Bull Moose Society” is based on a nickname for Theodore Roosevelt, whom Miller quotes in his letter as follows: “Our aim is not to do away with corporations… we are merely determined that they shall be so handled as to subserve the public good. We draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth.”
Roosevelt famously said after losing the Republican presidential nomination in 1912 that he felt as “strong as a bull moose.” The Progressive Party, on whose ticket Roosevelt ran for president that year, was nicknamed the “Bull Moose Party.”
SLEEPY? Biden Yet to Deliver First State of the Union Amid Confused Public Appearances
Are they keeping him out of view?
Joe Biden is yet to give his first State of the Union address as President, disregarding precedent and conventional timing for the presidential address.
Presidents usually deliver the speech to Congress in February. President Donald Trump gave the latest first State of the Union address delivered by a President since 1977 when Jimmy Carter declined to give a SOTU address, with Trump speaking on February 28th, 2017.
Nothing on President Biden’s public calendar advertises a State of the Union speech. It’s likely that a speech, if it even occurs at all, would occur in March, but it’s unclear if Biden even intends to give one.
The snub of the extended public speech comes as recurring questions regarding Biden’s mental acuity and sharpness reemerge. With Biden generally appearing sharp and fluid in an extremely limited schedule of public speaking appearances as a candidate, some of his recent speeches have featured the President stumbling over his words and appearing to struggle cognitively with his delivery.
No wonder they are putting off the State of the Union.

A first State of the Union address could present President Biden with an opportunity to make the case for the payment of $2000 in Biden Bux to every middle class and poor citizen, and outline a policy agenda for his term in office he’s been reluctant to discuss. Instead, it appears likely it won’t occur.
Some have even speculated if Biden is taking medication to speak as sharply as possible. This isn’t uncommon at all for Americans of his age, but it’s fair to question his acuity and cognitive state now and in the years to come, considering his recent history of persistent confusion and verbal gaffes.
