Big Brother Is Here: Twitter Will Monitor Users Behavior 'Off Platform' "In perhaps the most intrusive move of social media platforms' efforts signal as much virtue as possible and appease their potentially-regulating government overlords, Twitter has announced that it is cracking down on what it defines at hate-speech and...

Charles Manson
It is strange how close we are to people we have never met. It is no more than six degrees of separation in most cases. There is a parlor game on this: the Kevin Bacon game. Name a movie. Then get to Kevin Bacon within six steps. Sometimes it is far fewer than six. A www.GaryNorth.com site member posted this. As a member of the BMW Club of Northern California, I met some unusual people. Dick (Richard) Van Dusen was among them. He invited me to visit his home to meet his family. He did so with this invitation, “We don’t have much,...

The End Is Near
The storyline began with Weinstein and moved, as sure as day follows night, to Clinton. And now this: Bill Clinton Faces Sexual Assault Accusations From Four More Women …the women allege the former president assaulted them in the early 2000s, when Clinton was working with playboy billionaire investor Ron Burkle. They say there is no evidence that Burkle knew anything about the alleged assaults.  I say that there is: Clinton and Burkle used to travel together on Burkle’s private jet, which earned the reprehensible nickname “Air F*** One”. All of the women are former employees of Burkle who said Clinton took advantage of his power...

Zimbabwe Military Says Mugabe Impeachment Process Has Begun
Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe baffled his country and the world last night when, instead of publicly announcing his resignation, he reaffirmed his intention to stay on as the head of state in Zimbabwe, and admonished members of his ruling ZANU PF party for their “arbitrary decision making” and “victimization.” Mugabe’s defiance immediately spurred conspiracy theories, including one where military commanders who flanked Mugabe during his speech smuggled him an alternate version following the review of his initial draft.   Y’all need to watch closely. They legit switched #RobertMugabe ‘s speech or did something hella fishy. Smh. #mugabe #Zimbabawe #kmt pic.twitter.com/twdrfMUZtt — Loye Olatunbosun (@loyeloves)...

Is A Saudi-Israeli Friendship Driving The Rest Of The Middle East Together?
Authored by Federico Pieraccini via The Strategic Culture Foundation, Through its top official, Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS), Saudi Arabia continues a wave of internal arrests, having seized nearly $800 billion in assets and bank accounts. A few days later, MBS attempted to demonstrate his authority by summoning Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri to Saudi Arabia, where he was forced to resign on Saudi state TV. Trump tweeted support for Bin Salman's accusations against Iran and Hezbollah, and the future Saudi king even obtained Israel's secret support. Iran, meanwhile, denies any involvement in Lebanon's domestic affairs or involvement with the ballistic...

Doomsday Preppers Are Switching Allegiance From Gold To Bitcoin
The gold versus Bitcoin debate is complex, nuanced and still in its embryonic stages when put into the perspective of gold’s known 2,700-year use as money versus Bitcoin’s very modest eight-year track record. From a pure investment perspective, as the following Bloomberg chart shows, Bitcoin has obviously “wiped the floor” with its esteemed rival and, no doubt, has absorbed a considerable volume of funds that otherwise might have found their way into gold investments. One subset of gold investors, which is both over-stated and over-ridiculed in the mainstream media, is the “preppers”, or those preparing for a catastrophic disaster to occur...

Your Lower and Lower Standard of Living
Several times over my 29 years in Congress I have wondered whether there are any fiscal conservatives at the Pentagon. It seems that the Defense Department is just like every other gigantic bureaucracy. When it comes to money, the refrain is always “more, more, more.” On November 14, the House passed what one Capitol Hill paper described as a “$700 billion compromise defense bill.”  It was $80 billion over the budget caps and many billions more than even President Trump had requested. I opposed almost all the major initiatives of the Obama administration. But it was false to say that...

Drie  opmerkingen over global warming
Deze opmerkingen plaats ik, uitgaande van de hypothese dat deze opwarming onder invloed van menselijke actviteiten inderdaad plaatvindt. 01. Global warming lijkt precies wat wij nodig hebben. De omvang van de gebieden waar in de toekomst mensen zullen kunnen gaan wonen en landbouw uitgeoefend zal kunnen worden, is ten minste honderden keren groter dan de […]

Freedom for Television and Radio
By: Murray N. RothbardThere is one important area of American life where no effective freedom of speech or the press does or can exist under the present system. That is the entire field of radio and television. In this area, the federal government, in the crucially important Radio Act of 1927, nationalized the airwaves. In effect, the federal government took title to ownership of all radio and television channels. It then presumed to grant licenses, at its will or pleasure, for use of the channels to various privately owned stations. On the one hand, the stations, since they receive the licenses...

Ik denk dus ik besta?
Artikel eerder gepubliceerd op overbeterleven.nl. Dit artikel is een beetje ‘meta’. Het heeft eigenlijk geen praktische betekenis. Maar ik vind het soms wel leuk om over dit soort dingen na te denken. Al was het maar ter ontspanning. Waarschuwing: Sommige mensen vinden het niet leuk om over het bestaan na te denken als dit het […]

<div>Lyndon Johnson's Terrible Legacy</div>
By: Patrick BarronRecently my wife and I spent a morning at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Texas. The damage done by this big bully is incalculable. His library reminds us of the start of the blizzard of government expansion during Johnson's presidential term, which lasted from the Kennedy assassination in October 1963 to his decision not to run for a full second term in 1968, which usually is attributed to his failure to end the war in Vietnam.Johnson was an admirer of FDR and was determined to revive and complete what he believed should have been integral...
