Your ‘Expectation of Privacy’

Last month, researchers at Stanford University announced they had developed software that was able to accurately predict a person’s sexual orientation. Drawing from photos on a popular dating website, their program was able to correctly distinguish self-identified gay men from heterosexual men 81% of the time. It had a 71% success rate in distinguishing gay women from heterosexual women. When the algorithm was given five images of the same person to examine, the accuracy rose to 91% for men and 83% for women. Given that the individuals whose photos were analyzed had already self-identified as straight or gay, you might … Continue reading

CIA Wants Trump To Keep Hiding 3,000 Documents

More than 3,000 never-before-seen documents from the FBI, CIA, and Justice Department on the assassination of John F. Kennedy are scheduled be released, with many experts fearing that such a large release of secret JFK assassination documents will spur “a new generation of conspiracy theories.” According to Roger Stone, the CIA is urging President Donald Trump to delay disclosing some of the files for another 25 years. Roger Stone said in a post on his website… “They must reflect badly on the CIA even though virtually everyone involved is long dead.” Newsmax reports: More than 3,000 never-before-seen documents from the FBI, CIA, and Justice Department … Continue reading

Who Pays What in Taxes?

Politicians exploit public ignorance. Few areas of public ignorance provide as many opportunities for political demagoguery as taxation. Today some politicians argue that the rich must pay their fair share and label the proposed changes in tax law as tax cuts for the rich. Let’s look at who pays what, with an eye toward attempting to answer this question: Are the rich paying their fair share? According to the latest IRS data, the payment of income taxes is as follows. The top 1 percent of income earners, those having an adjusted annual gross income of $480,930 or higher, pay about … Continue reading

Iranian Genocide

With his declaration Friday that the Iran nuclear deal is not in the national interest, President Donald Trump may have put us on the road to war with Iran. Indeed, it is easier to see the collisions that are coming than to see how we get off this road before the shooting starts. After “de-certifying” the nuclear agreement, signed by all five permanent members of the Security Council, Trump gave Congress 60 days to reimpose the sanctions that it lifted when Teheran signed. If Congress does not reimpose those sanctions and kill the deal, Trump threatens to kill it himself. … Continue reading

Indian Chiefs

If you live in the United States (and even if you don’t) you’ve probably heard about a number of the country’s prominent historical figures. But what about the history of those who were there before? Even many Americans know very little of Native American history. One of many overlooked aspects of Native American history is the long list of exceptional men who led various tribes as chiefs or war leaders. Just as noble and brave as anyone on the Mexican, British, or American sides, many of them have been swept into the dustbin of history. Here are ten of the greatest Native … Continue reading

The American Tradition

Two recent seemingly incongruous events present symptoms of a larger disease in the American polity. First, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has promised to nuke the United States, and according to recent testimony before Congress, a North Korean EMP attack could kill 90% of the American population within one year. Second, on Monday, October 16, the National Infantry Museum in Columbus, GA dedicated the “Global War on Terrorism” memorial. Highlighted are the over 6,000 American soldiers killed since 2002 in the modern campaign to “make the world safe for….” The world wasn’t too safe for them or apparently for the … Continue reading

How To Heal Your Leaky Gut

I am pleased to announce my newest book, Heal Your Leaky Gut:  The Hidden Cause of Many Chronic Diseases.  This is my fifteenth book.  I wrote this book to offer hope and a plan to those who suffer from poor health. In my daily practice of medicine, I see so many people suffering from a myriad of illnesses.  One of the first things I do with my patients is educate them about the importance of eating a healthy diet.  You see, eating the standard American diet (SAD) leads to gut and immune system problems.   The largest concentration of immune system cells … Continue reading

US Policy Against Iran

The State Department and President Trump have been spitting out curses against Hezbollah and Iran – this could lead us to fear a break in the 5+1 agreement. But for Thierry Meyssan, while the worst may still happen, it is far more probable that, once again, Washington is staging a phony quarrel in order to better manipulate its Israëli and Saudi allies. he US President’s speech on Iran was preceded by a Press conference at the State Department accusing Hezbollah of exporting terrorism all over the world on behalf of Teheran [1]. To show that the US was ready to put … Continue reading

Fred S. McChesney, Rest in Peace

I first met Fred McChesney (1948–2017) at the Federal Trade Commission in the early 1980s. Ronald Reagan had just been elected to the presidency and had appointed James C. Miller III as the FTC’s chairman. Robert Tollison had been confirmed as the Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Economics. I am not sure how…
