  • Donald Trump: The 'Fascist' Who Cuts Taxes And Deregulates (Whose policies are closer to Nazis?)

    IBD ^ | 08/23/2017 | Kerry Jackson
    Evverybody knows by now that President Trump is a fascist. He's a Nazi just like the white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12. We know this because the mainstream media, a host of dimwit celebrities, various Democratic politicians and the highly reputable antifa tell us he is. What we really know, though, is these groups don't know anything except how to shriek louder and longer than everyone else. A few also well know how to break other people's property and set things that don't belong to them on fire. But they don't know their history, and therefore...

    Ever since the 2016 primaries, the Warren/Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wing of the party has become more vocal, more active, and completely blinded with rage over Donald Trump’s 2016 win. Many are saying the moderate, centrist path that kept Bill Clinton in the White House for two terms is over, and that Jon Ossoff, who lost the most expensive House race in Georgia, lost because he took a middle way in messaging. They’re gung-ho about making single-payer the new litmus test. First, they’re having a fight about abortion and whether backing pro-life Democrats is akin to making a deal with...
  • ‘The Economist’ Says Open Borders Could Make World $78 Trillion Richer: Here's Why That's Wrong

    National Economics Editorial ^ | August 18, 2017 | Spencer P Morrison
    Economics is an intellectual tool that can help us make better decisions, but it should not make these decisions for us. There are many rational reasons to sacrifice economic expediency for principles of far greater value—things like family, freedom, art, science, nature, or God. One of the reasons Singapore is so rich is because political dissent, and the uncertainty it creates, is extirpated. Likewise, China’s economic rise was made possible, in part, due to its ability to bulldoze villages, pollute rivers, and silence critics—all in the name of “progress.” Economically justified? Certainly. Rational? Perhaps—for Bentham’s most ardent acolytes. But for...

    "Keep the pressure on. Never let up». Saul Alinsky, "Rules for Radicals", Rule #8August 15, 2017 there were two seemingly unrelated events. Israel marked the 12th anniversary of the voluntary withdrawal from Gaza. And in New York, President Trump once again, for the third time, condemned all the participants in the brawl in Charlottesville. It seems that Trump did not learn the lessons of Gaza. And continues to attack the same rake. Under the pressure of the world’s “progressive humanity” in 2005, Israel decided to withdraw troops and forcefully withdraw the Jewish population from Gaza. Thus, a springboard was established...
  • Climate Change Threatens Sea Turtles, Researchers Say

    The Weather Channel ^ | August 14, 2017 | By Ada Carr
    Migrating sea turtles encountering cold waters around Cape Cod are being rendered unable to swim and are becoming stranded on beaches. Researchers believe warming temperatures on the beaches are posing a threat to the turtles' nests. Researchers believe climate change is playing a role in stranding the animals by creating warmer waters in the North Atlantic that attract the turtles. Global warming is also creating potential threats to the turtles on land. Scientists are concerned that beaches where turtles go to lay eggs will erode, and intensifying storms will wipe nests out. They are also concerned that warming beaches will...

    The Evil of the Scarcity Meme In order to avoid misunderstanding, let us make clear from the outset that scarcity is an unavoidable fact of life – it is the very thing that impels economic activity. If all material human wants were satisfied and we were living as immortals in the Land of Cockaigne, there would no longer be a reason to plan for the future, to save and invest, and to weigh the opportunity costs of different choices. In this hypothetical scenario, people may for a while engage in the pursuit of various pleasures, many would probably indulge in...

    When Americans think of Communism in Eastern Europe, they imagine travel restrictions, bleak landscapes of gray concrete, miserable men and women languishing in long lines to shop in empty markets and security services snooping on the private lives of citizens. While much of this was true, our collective stereotype of Communist life does not tell the whole story. Some might remember that Eastern bloc women enjoyed many rights and privileges unknown in liberal democracies at the time, including major state investments in their education and training, their full incorporation into the labor force, generous maternity leave allowances and guaranteed free...

    Just when you thought all the possible microaggression scenarios humanly possible had been called out, more pop up. The latest offensives to avoid come courtesy of The New School, a private university in New York City. It has published an extensive list of “microinsults,” “microassaults” and “microinvalidations” to avoid, including ones specific to academia, like this one: “Seats in the classroom / auditorium / office are too small for many people.” Additional “academic setting” micros on The New School’s list include “food sold in the cafeteria does not include options for those with limited food budgets,” “being called ‘overly sensitive’...

On dealing with North Korea, President Trump must rely on the millions who voted for him. as there no backing for his strong and reasoned stand on North Korea from the Pentagon.

    llegals living in Los Angeles County were handed almost $1.3 billion in welfare payouts between the months of 2015 and 2016, Fox News reported, citing data. That’s billion with a capital “B.” That’s a quarter of what the county distributed to its entire needy population in those same months. Liberals and government elitists always like to make the case that citizens ought to support some cheap-sounding fee- or tax-paying cause by grandly pronouncing, “It’s just the cost of a cup of coffee,” or “If everyone just gave up their Starbucks lattes, it’d pay for itself.” Well, guess what $1.3 billion...

    To pay for the Big Apple’s crappy subway, he proposes a new tax on people who don’t use it. In the 1980s, Bill de Blasio supported the Sandinista National Liberation Front, whose regime of Marxism terrorized and impoverished Nicaragua. He worked as a political organizer for a group of communists and socialists called the Quixote Center in Maryland, traveling down to Nicaragua to participate in its “revolution.”

    A Mexican federal court has made an unusual ruling that bans the import of U.S. potatoes on the grounds the imports violate Mexicans’ right to food sovereignty and a healthy environment. A group of Mexican potato growers had sought a constitutional injunction on the imports, claiming they threaten to spread agricultural diseases. The court said Mexican agricultural authorities had failed to use methods like radiation treatment of imports to prevent diseases. But because federal injunctions are intended only to protect constitutional rights, the ruling had to break some new ground. The court ruled the ban must be implemented to preserve...

    The Reproducibility Project, meanwhile, swelled to include more than 270 researchers working to reproduce 100 psychology experiments—and in August 2015, Nosek revealed its results. Ultimately his army of volunteers could verify the findings of only about 40 percent of the studies. Media reports declared the field of psychology, if not all of science, to be in a state of crisis. It became one of the biggest science stories of the year.

    **SNIP** Democratic leaders shared few details to preserve suspense around the plan, which is scheduled to be unveiled Monday at an event in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, where the party hopes to defeat incumbent Rep. Barbara Comstock (R). But some lawmakers, aides and outside advocates consulted on the new agenda said that it is expected to focus on new proposals to fund job-training programs, renegotiate trade deals and address soaring prescription-drug costs, as well as other issues. It is also expected to endorse long-held Democratic principles, including “a living wage” of $15 per hour and already unveiled spending plans for...

    Some people say capitalism and alligators have much in common — both eat their young. While the rich get richer (and will get richer still if the #FakePresident has his way), ordinary schlubs who are working one, two, or sometimes three jobs to make ends meet are finding they can no longer afford to buy average new cars. That’s according to a new study by Bankrate.com. It finds that people living in 24 of the 25 largest metropolitan areas in the US cannot afford the average price of new cars, which was $33,000 in May according to Kelly Blue Book....

    I first heard the term “basic income” in the socialist magazine Dissent in 2005. I was a 15-year-old leftist with a taste for weird, radical plans to restructure society: say, having the government buy up majority stakes in every company and then distribute them equally to every American; converting all companies into worker cooperatives; trying a planned economy where the planning is done by decentralized worker and consumer councils rather than a government bureaucracy. Basic income, wherein the government gives everyone enough cash to live on with no strings attached, struck me as an idea in that mold: another never-going-to-happen...

    The “Socialism 2017” conference is rolling into Chicago next month and more than 1,500 professors, authors, students and activists are expected to attend and strategize systems to “fight the right” and resist the “political system that spawned Trump,” and build the left from a “Marxist perspective.” Some of today’s most controversial anti-white, anti-Trump professors are headlining the event, which boasts more than 100 workshops committed to tearing down our country, “building a socialist society,” and covering the debates on the left along with the hidden history of working-class and socialist struggles. In layman’s terms, the conference is predicated upon stripping...

    A new minimum wage study suggests Seattle's quest for a $15 minimum wage may not be completely painless. Not all is rosy in Seattle as the city gradually pushes to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour, according to a new study that suggests hiring and the number of hours worked among lower-wage employees took a hit last year as minimum pay rose. The National Bureau of Economic Research unveiled a working paper on Monday that found the number of hours worked in low-skill professions dropped more than 9 percent in Seattle during the first three quarters of last...

    A teacher at a public high school in Alabama sent his students home with a summer reading list chock full of conservative authors from which to choose, including Ann Coulter, Ronald Reagan, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and libertarian John Stossel. But parents became concerned that it leaned too far right and so now, the kids don’t have to read anything over the summer.
