Must Reads For The Week 1/30/16
THE BREAK DOWN OF THE RULE OF LAW
The rule of law defined as, 1) general rules, that are 2) known in advance, 3) which apply to the rulers as well as the ruled.
Before you read the next three articles think about this definition, and remember these examples of this breakdown. 1) Nothing happened to the IRS (Lois Lerner) when agents used their power against liberty groups. 2) Hillary promised to bring the person who made the Youtube video to justice. Although blaming the video was an out right lie, the government did put ‘this person’ in jail, but not for the making the video. They put him in jail for a probation violation. 3) Hillary Clinton broke the law by conducting government business on her private e-mail server. The fact that some of the e-mails were classified or top secret only adds more illegality to the original illegal activity. Do you think she will spend any time in jail? Not a snow balls chance…! She is probably trying to find someone who will take the fall for her.
There are so many laws on the books, we can’t possibly know all of them. Each of us can be found to have broken a law if we’ve run afoul of a motivated government agent or agency. Our betters never have to follow the laws that we, the benighted masses, have to follow. This breakdown has been happening for decades, and the push back is about to boil over. The rise of anti establishment candidates in both parties is proof of this.
Grand Jury Indicts Planned Parenthood Video Filmmaker For Organ Trafficking, Issues No Charges Against Planned Parenthood, by thefederalist.com. Pro-Life activist David Daleiden, who made the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood employees trafficking in baby parts, was indicted on trafficking in baby parts. I like the statement from Daleiden, “We respect the processes of the Harris County District Attorney, and note that buying fetal tissue requires a seller as well.” Who might that seller be? Unfortunately for Mr Daleiden he is on the wrong side of political correctness when it comes to the lefts sacrament of abortion. Read more in this article, Now We Indict Whistle Blowers, Not Oppressors, at the federalist.com.
Deny “Climate Change”? Don’t Live In California! by Russ Helper, at thefederalistpapers.org. The California Attorney General has joined the Attorney General of New York in trying to prosecute Exxon Mobil for supposedly lying to its shareholders and the public about global warming. If people aren’t allowed to talk about a scientific ‘theory’, we’ve lost our right to free speech. Exxon Mobil is on the wrong side of political correctness when it comes to the lefts sacred scripture about global warming.
Jury-Nullification Activist charged With Felony By Mecosta County Prosecutor, by Bob Unruh, at wnd.com. Keith Wood passed out pamphlets about jury nullification to members of a jury pool. Although jury nullification is legal, the judge didn’t like it and ordered that he be arrested. Mr. Wood was on the wrong side of people who were in positions to bring the full force of government down on him.
MORE GOVERNMENT MISCHIEF
How Government Poisoned The People Of Flint, by John Counts, at mlive.com. The city switched its water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River in 2014. In spite of residence complaints about the waters smell, they were told to keep drinking it. Nothing will happen to the people who brought about this disaster. Just like the EPA poisoning the Animus River in Colorado.
The Supreme Court Backs Electricity Fascism, at economicpolicyjournal.com. The Supreme Court is allowing Government intervention into the pricing system for energy via the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, (have you ever heard of this commission?). Even the Court wants the government to circumvent the decision-making by individuals in free markets.
Common Core To Cost CA. Nearly $10 Billion, And The Nation $80 Billion, by Joy Pullmann, at thefederalist.com. You will pay through the nose so the elite can brainwash the next generation into thinking that everything flows from “benevolent” government.
THE WORLD ECONOMY
Dallas Fed Survey Crashes To 6-Year Low As D Word Is Uttered, at zerohedge.com. Economic forces are in the process of correcting what all the money printing brought about.
Bubble Watch: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles (OK Just Planes And Ships), by Paul-Martin Foss, at mises.org. There is an over-supply of planes and ships compared to the demand for them. More monetary mischief.
Central Banker Warns Of Coming Financial Collapse, by Joseph T. Salerno, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article; “Debts have continued to build over the last eight years and have become a potent cause for mischief. It will become obvious in the next recession that many…. will never be serviced or repaid, and this will be uncomfortable for a lot of people who think they own assets that are worth something.”
Want To Know What The S&P 500 Does Next? Just Look At The Fed’s Balance Sheet, at zerohedge.com. Amazing how the S&P 500 tracks right along with the electronically printed money the Fed has injected into the financial markets through the process of purchasing mortgage-backed securities and government debt. Is this causation or correlation?
Brazil’s Easy-Money Problem, by Lucas Vaz, at mises.org. Brazil’s economic problems were brought about by central planning monetary intervention in the form of bank credit expansion. Aka money printing.
Norway’s Largest Bank Proposes A Raid On Cash, Joseph T. Salerno, at mises.org. Say hello to fees on cash holdings, negative interest rates, and bail-ins.
This Is Why “Everyone Was Shocked” By The Bank Of Japan Announcement, at zerohedge.com. The BOJ followed the ECB and the central banks of Sweden, Denmark, and Switzerland in adopting negative interest rates. This is an attempt to incentivize people to spend cash to stimulate the economy,instead of holding it as savings. When will they ever learn that injecting money into the economy is a short term benefit that creates a long term problem.
Allowing Transgender Olympians Is Unfair To Women, by Brandon Morse, at thefederalist.com. Ladies; how does it feel to be ahead of men but behind gay, bisexual, and transgender people on the value scale of the politically correct elite? Don’t complain about it or you will be labeled a transgenderphobe, bisexualphobe, and a homophobe. Remember when the elite used to pit men against women, and we were the ones who were called sexists? Oh the good old days!
