What happened when Mexicans adopted the American diet?

When the NAFTA free trade agreement passed in 1994, 10.8 percent of Mexican children were underweight. Now as adults, 72 percent of Mexicans are overweight or obese. They’ve exchanged one form of malnutrition for another… and done so in greater amounts… all because NAFTA ushered in an American diet.

The Sparkling Revisionist

I recently ordered and am now eagerly devouring the anthology of David Gordon’s reviews and essays An Austro-Libertarian View published by the Mises Institute. Gordon belongs in more than one way to the institute that brought out this volume. Indeed in his Foreword he lets the reader know that when he first read Man, Economy and the State in 1962, he became a “convinced Rothbardian,” and “it is from this standpoint that I have written my articles.” This may understate the relation described. David was a close friend as well as disciple of Murray, who returned David’s admiration by describing … Continue reading

Lies, Damned Lies

At a time when the United States is convulsed by anti-Russian hysteria and demonization of Vladimir Putin, a trove of recently declassified Cold War documents reveals the astounding extent of the lies, duplicity and double-dealing engaged in by the western powers with the collapsing Soviet Union in 1990. I was covering Moscow in those days and met some of the key players in this sordid drama.   Ever since, I’ve been writing that the Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Foreign Minister, Eduard Shevardnadze, were shamelessly lied to and deceived by the United States, Britain, and their appendage, NATO. All the western … Continue reading

Does Vitamin Therapy Work?

According to modern medicine, vitamin therapy is hocus pocus.  It relies on a mixture of voodoo plus the placebo effect.  A report published in the Annals of Internal Medicine says unequivocally, vitamin and mineral supplements are a “waste of money.”  A noted professor of medicine says multivitamins just create “expensive urine” as they are rapidly excreted in urine (pssst… water soluble drugs suffer the same fate).  But is modern medicine just protecting its income stream derived from its own lack of preventive medicine and reliance upon prescription drugs to keep office appointment books full? Vitamin D in dietary supplement form … Continue reading

A Century of Change

Remnant Review My mother was born on December 15, 1917. She died just shy of 98 years old in 2015. These time-marking dates got me thinking about the world that she entered. Public health policies had overcome most pandemics by 1917. There was only one pandemic still ahead, the flu epidemic of 1918. That was the last one the West ever saw. While there have been tremendous developments in medicine since 1917, most notably penicillin and the development of sulfa drugs, the great breakthroughs in terms of increased life expectancy had been made by 1917 in the West. They were … Continue reading

All-Out War

Klein is basically an investigative reporter who has written a great book on the efforts to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election. It is an old fashioned type report based on facts with little opinion. He details how three major institutions have banded together to destroy the Trump presidency. These are the Deep State (the permanent bureaucratic government in DC), Congress, and the “streets.” There is also most of the media which acts as the propaganda department for these institutions. On Inauguration Day in 2017, the Washington Post announced that the campaign to impeach Trump had begun and … Continue reading

16 Facts 16 Years After 9/11

There are still many people who instantly place those who question the official narrative of  9/11 within the conspiracy realm. They do this automatically, without ever investigating or questioning for themselves, simply trusting in whatever narrative is provided to them via mainstream media. This is partly due to fear — it’s easier, and more comfortable, and less frightening to believe there are enemies far from home who wish us harm than to consider that the people we chose to put in positions of great power here in our own country are manipulating us, and lying to us. It would definitely bring up some … Continue reading

What Happens After the Next 9/11?

Is a police state in the US possible? Absolutely. That’s because people are essentially the same the world over, regardless of their culture, religion, race, or what-have-you. A certain percentage of them are sociopaths. There is a standard distribution of sociopaths across time and space. It’s a function of Pareto’s Law, better known as the 80-20 rule. 20% of the people do 80% of the work. Another 20% are responsible for 80% of the crime. 20% of the population always winds up with 80% of the wealth. And so forth, through all areas of human endeavor. This observation can be … Continue reading
