Brickbat: For Services Rendered

When drivers get into an accident in Newburgh Heights, Ohio, the city bills them or their insurance company hundreds of dollars for police services, even if the cops never respond. And the city continues to send them bills until they pay. It’s…

Prepared for the unknown… I thought

The last three months have been a difficult and challenging time for me. One of the most difficult things I have had to try to wrap my brain around has been the fact that there are things that I have never considered when it comes to my family’s preparedness. I have always felt that I had a decent grasp on the scenarios that my family and I were likely to face. Of course, since that Murphy guy seems to really exist, I have since learned otherwise.

Libertarian Thought in Colonial America

[This is chapter 33 from Rothbard’s 4-volume history of colonial America, Conceived in Liberty. Listen to the audio version.] We have touched several times, especially in dealing with religious doctrines and institutions, upon the growth of libertarian views in eighteenth-century America. This extremely significant development was not a full-blown giant suddenly burst upon the European and American scenes. J. H. Hexter, in his brilliant Reappraisals in History, warns us of the dangerous temptation toward a linear view of history—a view adopted in different ways by “Whig” and Marxist alike. The linear view assumes a steady march from past to present; Hexter cites the … Continue reading

Love the Reformation

I hate self-deluded experts who won’t make an effort…. I offer the following exchange, with some additional color thrown in by yours truly: a ware November 17, 2017 at 3:31 PM I resisted commenting but here goes. You should have stuck to your first instinct. I admire your writing and mostly agree with your analysis, though I am an anarchist rather than libertarian. Wow! A real anarchist and not a mamby-pamby libertarian!  Thanks for sharing. Time to buy old US gold coins Why this is relevant, we are given not a clue.  In any case, whenever someone who has never commented here … Continue reading

The Nuclear Button

William Binney is the former National Security Agency (NSA) official who created NSA’s mass surveillance program for digital information. He says that if the Russian government had conspired with Trump, hacked the Democratic National Committee’s computer, or in any way influenced the outcome of the last US presidential election, the National Security Agency would have the digital evidence. The fact that we have been listening to the unsubstantiated charges that comprise “Russiagate” for more than one year without being presented with a scrap of evidence is complete proof that Russiagate is entirely fake news. The fake news originated with CIA … Continue reading

The Great Retirement Con

The Origins Of The Retirement Plan Back during the Revolutionary War, the Continental Congress promised a monthly lifetime income to soldiers who fought and survived the conflict. This guaranteed income stream, called a “pension”, was again offered to soldiers in the Civil War and every American war since. Since then, similar pension promises funded from public coffers expanded to cover retirees from other branches of government. States and cities followed suit — extending pensions to all sorts of municipal workers ranging from policemen to politicians, teachers to trash collectors. A pension is what’s referred to as a defined benefit plan. The … Continue reading

US Trained Syria’s Al Qaeda ‘Rebels’

This article was first published in April 2017 following the accusations directed against the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against its own people. The issue is now once more before the UN Security Council. Read carefully. The Western media refute their own lies. Not only do they confirm that the Pentagon has been training the terrorists in the use of chemical weapons, they also acknowledge the existence of a not so secret “US-backed plan to launch a chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime”  London’s Daily Mail in a 2013 article confirmed the existence of an … Continue reading

Arrogant, Embarrassing, and Stupid

After getting thoroughly outmaneuvered at the U.N. Security Council meeting this week, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley apologized in advance to the Syrian victims of the next chemical weapons attack. The sheer arrogance of this statement is staggering. As an American, Haley is an embarrassment and unfit to represent my interests at the U.N.  Her outburst was in response to Russia vetoing the latest attempt by her to bully the UNSC to accept a resolution extending the investigation into the April chemical weapons attack at Khan Sheikhoun in Syria. This investigation, known as the JIM, is a complete joke.  In … Continue reading

The Attack on RT

This week the US Department of Justice Criminal Division forced the Russian-funded television network RT (formerly Russia Today) to register as a “foreign agent” under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). Failure to comply would have risked arrest of RT’s management and seizure of its assets. The move comes on the heels of Senators’ recent demands that terrified tech giants Twitter, Facebook, and Google act as ideological filters. With no discernable defenders among America’s media establishment, RT rightly denounced the selective FARA mandate as an attack on media freedom – which it is. But more ominous is what the move against RT says … Continue reading

The Demise of Dissent

In other words, we’ll be left with officially generated and sanctioned fake news and “approved” dissent. We’ve all heard that the problem with the web is fake news, i.e. unsubstantiated or erroneous content that’s designed to mislead or sow confusion. The problem isn’t just fake news–it’s the homogenization of the web, that is, the elimination or marginalization of independent voices of skepticism and dissent. There are four drivers of this homogenization: 1. The suppression of dissent under the guise of ridding the web of propaganda and fake news–in other words, dissent is labeled fake news as a cover for silencing critics and skeptics. 2. The sharp … Continue reading

25 Most Shocking Medical Mistakes

By Dr. Mercola Hospitals are typically thought of as places where lives are saved, but statistics show they’re actually one of the most dangerous places you could possibly enter.1,2 Each day, more than 40,000 harmful and/or lethal medical errors occur, placing the patient in a worse situation than what they came in with.3 According to a 2013 study,4,5 preventable medical errors kill around 440,000 patients each year — more than 10 times the number of deaths caused by motor vehicle crashes. A 2016 study6 calculated the annual death toll to be around 250,000. Medical Mistakes Are the Third Leading Cause of Death in … Continue reading
