The vacuum is the source of the CMB, which is energy that was lost when light is redshifted. At least according to that idea.
That idea is wrong, and obviously so. We have been over this before. Tired light fails, and this is just another version.
"As long as it is admitted that the law may be diverted from its true purpose -- that it may violate property instead of protecting it -- then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself against plunder or to use it for plunder.

There will be fighting at the door of the Legislative Palace, and the struggle within will be no less furious." - Bastiat, The Law
