Matt Kibbe is President at Free the People, an educational foundation using video storytelling to turn on the next generation to the values of personal liberty and peaceful cooperation. He is also co-founder and partner at Fight the Power Productions, a video and strategic communications company. Kibbe is the host of BlazeTV’s Kibbe on Liberty, a popular podcast that insists that you think for yourself.
He was senior advisor for a Rand Paul Presidential Super PAC in 2016, and later co-founded AlternativePAC to promote libertarian values.
In 2004 Kibbe founded FreedomWorks, a national grassroots advocacy organization, and served as President until his departure in 2015. Steve Forbes said: “Kibbe has been to FreedomWorks what Steve Jobs was to Apple.” Newsweek pronounced Kibbe “one of the masterminds” of tea party politics. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann called Kibbe “The second worst person in the world.”
Dubbed “the scribe” by the New York Daily News, Kibbe is the author of the #2 New York Times bestseller Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto (HarperCollins 2014), and Hostile Takeover: Resisting Centralized Government’s Stranglehold on America (HarperCollins 2012). He coauthored Give Us Liberty: A Tea Party Manifesto (HarperCollins 2010). Kibbe has appeared frequently on national television, including FOX News, HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS.
Before launching FreedomWorks, Kibbe served as a congressional Chief of Staff and House Budget Committee Associate. He was also Budget Director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and Senior Economist for the RNC under Lee Atwater.
Kibbe did graduate work in economics at George Mason University and received his B.A. in economics from Grove City College. He lives in Washington, DC with his awesome wife Terry, and their three objectivist cats, Roark, Ragnar and Rearden. Kibbe is also a fanatical DeadHead, drinker of craft beer and whisky, and collector of obscure books on Austrian economics.
