The Camp of the Saints
Jean Raspail’s novel is unfolding before our eyes. The Russians and Chinese do not need to do anything about Europe and the US. The West is self-destructing at a rapid pace.

I Ain’t Got No Quarrel With Them Russians
The entire anti-Russia brouhaha has reminded me of what Mohammad Ali stated after receiving notice from his local draft board that he was being forced to serve in the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. Ali declared. “I ain’t got no quarrel with them Vietcong.” Ali had a point. After all, what had the Vietcong done to him or any other American? No Vietcong had ever come to the United States and attacked civilians, soldiers, or CIA or NSA agents. No Viet Cong had ever expressed any interest in invading and conquering the United States and taking over the federal...

What Can We Expect Will Happen To Gun Control With The New Congress?
Column by new Root Striker Sam Bocetta. Exclusive to STR Now that the 2018 midterm elections are over and almost all of the results are in, a major question that people on both sides of the aisle are sure to have is this: What can we expect to happen in regards to gun control once the new Congress is sworn in in January? Since the Democrats will control the House and the Republicans the Senate, your quick answer may be nothing.  Even if the House were to pass every piece of gun control legislation they wanted to, from bans on “high capacity” magazines...

The Bizarre Viral Story Of The Professor Who Hired Mercenaries To Rescue A Student From ISIS
An epic and unheard of story of a rescue operation to free a graduate student from ISIS captivity is grabbing world headlines after it was revealed that a professor at a Swedish university financed and put together the whole plan by hiring mercenaries for the high risk venture of entering Islamic State territory.  In 2014 a chemistry PhD student named Firas Jumaah returned to his native Iraq while on break from Lund University, located outside of Malmo, Sweden. He returned in order to help his family escape ISIS, which at that time was sweeping northern Iraq, especially decimating the ethno-religious Yazidi community,...

Psychoanalysing NATO: Schizophrenia
Authored by Patrick Armstrong via The Strategic Culture Foundation, NATO sorrowfully explains its problems with Russia on its official website: For more than two decades, NATO has worked to build a partnership with Russia, developing dialogue and practical cooperation in areas of common interest. Cooperation has been suspended since 2014 in response to Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine but political and military channels of communication remain open. Concerns about Russia’s continued destabilising pattern of military activities and aggressive rhetoric go well beyond Ukraine. None of this – of course – is NATO's fault: on the contrary NATO is concerned that Russia’s military activities, particularly along...

Escobar: How The New Silk Roads Are Merging Into Greater Eurasia
Authored by Pepe Escobar via The Asia Times, Russia is keen to push economic integration with parts of Asia and this fits in with China's Belt and Road Initiative... The concept of Greater Eurasia has been discussed at the highest levels of Russian academia and policy-making for some time. This week the policy was presented at the Council of Ministers and looks set to be enshrined, without fanfare, as the main guideline of Russian foreign policy for the foreseeable future. President Putin is unconditionally engaged to make it a success. Already at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2016, Putin referred to...

Bad News for the Empire
It is increasingly clear that global economy is slowing down.  And a few months ago the epicenter for that slowdown was Turkey. The Turkish Lira melted down as fears over its massive pile of corporate debt, most of it denominated in dollars, began selling off.  And that had contagion effects into Europe since yield-starved banks went looking for some thanks to the ECB’s negative interest rate policy. So, at the time everyone was losing their minds.  The very public tiff between Presidents Trump and Erdogan over geopolitical issues became acute. Days later Turkey’s currency is under extreme pressure. At the...

E-Verify Threatens Us All
By: Ron PaulIn addition to funding for a border wall and other border security measures, immigration hardliners are sure to push to include mandatory E-Verify in any immigration legislation considered by Congress. E-Verify is a (currently) voluntary program where businesses check job applicants’ Social Security numbers and other Information — potentially including “biometric” identifiers like fingerprints — against information stored in a federal database to determine if the job applicants are legally in the United States.Imagine how much time would be diverted from serving consumers and growing the economy if every US business had to comply with E-Verify. Also, collecting...

Remembering Burt Blumert
By: David GordonToday would have been the 89th birthday of Burt Blumert, one of the greatest personalities of the modern libertarian movement. Burt was the indispensable man behind the scenes and was a key figure in the Mises Institute, the Center for Libertarian Studies, and LewRockwell.com. He was one of Murray Rothbard’s closest friends; and when you met him, it was easy to see why Murray liked him. He was a genial and kind person and a source of wise counsel to all those fortunate to know him. Burt was the founder of Camino Coins and a principal figure in...

Mark Thornton: Is the Bust Here?
By: Mark Thornton, Jeff DeistWith stock markets in turmoil earlier this week, the Mises Institute's resident expert on booms and busts joins Jeff Deist to make sense of it. Will new Fed Chair Jerome Powell do everything possible to prop up markets, or will he be more hawkish than Janet Yellen? What kinds of indicators does Mark look for to predict trouble (hint: it's not the VIX). Why does the volume of margin loans matter, and why is the Russell 2000 Index a better predictor than the Dow or Nasdaq? Are cryptocurrencies now bound up with macro trends? And is Austrian...
