Are Chickenhawks Afraid of Ron and Lew?
Buried deep inside the just-passed defense budget is a small amendment, which could lead to a ban on broadcasting RT in America. The architects of the provision, Senators Graham and McCain, may recall that in their youth such practices formed what was known as the ‘Iron Curtain’. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the fiscal year 2018, which was passed by the US Senate earlier this week, is stuffed with provisions that have little to do with US national defense. This is a tactic that US lawmakers have traditionally used to ‘piggy-back’ legislation which would have little hope of adoption as...

Alzheimer’s Disease
No, the substance of this report doesn’t emanate from Harvard Medical School and is being ignored and will predictably be dismissed by uninformed physicians whose livelihood is threatened by such a discovery. Denial and ridicule is the first phase of any scientific discovery, followed strong opposition and finally self-evident acceptance.  This discovery hasn’t even reached the first stage as it goes ignored. The acronym for the National Institutes of Health — NIH – more accurately means: “not invented here.”  The covert mission of the NIH is to block any remedy outside of synthetic molecules from gaining FDA approval.

The Danger Of Patriotism
Authored by Bob Livingston via Personal Liberty blog, My friends, it is frightening how simple we are and how easily we are manipulated simply because we are intellectually lazy. The U.S. establishment has confused cause and effect by and through a flag-waving mania in America. "Patriotism" throughout history has covered a multitude of mischief. We are seeing it now! Phony patriotism is strong leverage against a population ignorant of the ways of treason by its own government. I also have no doubt that U.S. history is full of wars "for democracy" killing millions under the propaganda of patriotism with the majority support of...

<div>U.S. B-1B Bombers Fly Just Off Coast Of North Korea: 4 Reasons Why This Time It's Different</div>
Just before North Korea’s foreign minister was due to address the United Nations, the Pentagon announced that U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers escorted by fighter jets flew in international airspace over waters east of North Korea on Saturday, in a show of force which "demonstrated the range of military options available to President Donald Trump." The flight was the farthest north of the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea that any U.S. fighter jet or bomber has flown in the 21st century, the Pentagon added. B-1B Lancer prepares to take off from Andersen AFB, Guam, Sept. 23, 2017 According...

Spain found itself on the verge of a full-blown sovereign crisis on Saturday, after the "rebel region" of Catalonia rejected giving more control to the central government in defiance of authorities in Madrid who are trying to suppress an independence referendum on Oct. 1. As tensions rise ahead of the planned Catalan referendum on October 1, and as Madrid's crackdown on separatist passions took a turn for the bizarre overnight when as we reported Spain’s plan to send boatloads of military police to Catalonia to halt the referendum backfired with dockers in two ports staging a boycott and refused access, on...

William Stanley Jevons: help, de steenkolen raken op (1865)
Om doemscenario’s van uitputting van de grondstoffen in een historisch perspectief te plaatsen dit artikeltje. In 1865 publiceerde William Stanley Jevons zijn boek “The Coal Question“. Hij voorspelde de eindigheid van de economisch winbare steenkool reserves en koppelde daaraan een economisch doemscenario voor het Verenigd Koninkrijk. Ik laat Jevons zelf aan het woord, en citeer […]

Genghis Trump
NEW YORK – Not since Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev banged his fists and waved his shoe at the UN in 1960 has a world leader made such a spectacle of himself as President Donald Trump did this past week at the world organization. Trump vowed to ‘totally destroy’ North Korea, a nation of 25 million, if it dared threaten the US or its allies.   To do so, the US would have to use numerous nuclear weapons. The president’s Genghis Khan behavior seemed to take no account that a US nuclear strike against North Korea would cause huge destruction to neighboring...

Week in Review: September 23, 2017
By: Mises InstituteAlmost a decade later, the Federal Reserve this week announced it will begin reversing quantitative easing. Slowly. Very slowly. The balance sheet currently stands at $4.5 trillion and they will begin allowing $10 billion in assets to roll off their sheets next month. Given the unprecedented nature of QE, even this modest reduction has many market observers on edge. Of course, the fallout from the Fed's actions are still being felt, while the Trump Treasury is making threats that it would have disastrous consequences if acted on.On Mises Weekends, Jeff is joined by Dr. Mark Thornton to get...

The Supreme Court Failed Us On Vietnam
By: Jacob G. HornbergerWith last weeks’s beginning of Ken Burns’ new documentary about the Vietnam War, the war will be brought back to the front burner for national discussion and debate.There is one thing that is crystal clear and indisputable about the U.S. intervention into Vietnam’s civil war: The intervention was illegal under our form of government. That’s because it was waged in violation of the U.S. Constitution, the document that sets forth the powers of U.S. officials, including those in the military and the CIA.When the federal government was called into existence by the Constitution, its powers were limited...

Mark Thornton: Can the Fed Unwind?
By: Mark Thornton, Jeff DeistFederal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen announced the bank would begin selling assets it has relentlessly bought since the Crash of '08. The financial press, including the Wall Street Journal, dutifully praised Yellen for her steady hand. But our guest Dr. Mark Thornton has a different take on what it all means for stock markets, investors, and the US economy. Can quantitative easing—a roundabout form of monetizing debt—actually work? Can monetary policy make us rich? Or, are Fed officials just groping in the dark, putting off a day of reckoning? Jeff Deist and Mark Thornton unwind the narrative....

Soms zit het mee, soms zit het tegen
Het leven is niet altijd even simpel. Soms zit het mee, soms zit het tegen. Het gaat er uiteindelijk natuurlijk om hoe je met die tegenslag omgaat. En dat is niet altijd even makkelijk. Zoals bij sommigen bekend ben ik vorig jaar vrij plotseling naar Dubai vertrokken, na een even plotselinge scheiding. Er waren even […]
