Must Reads For The Week 1/21/17

The End Of The Obama World Order, at zerohedge.com. Are these years worth saving? Excerpt from the article: “The Obama years brought us the Arab Spring, Benghazi ISIS, civil war in Syria, civil war in Ukraine and the Iran nuclear deal. On the home front, we have had to deal with Obamacare, “Fast and Furious”, IRS targeting conservative groups, Solyndra, the VA scandal, NSA spying and the worst “economic recovery” since the end of World War II.” That is quite a list of accomplishments.

President Obama’s Final Message To The Press, at mediamatters.org. The President made these remarks to the press about how they should act towards the President elect: “You,re Not supposed to be sycophants, you’re supposed to be skeptics, you’re suppose to ask me though questions, you’re not supposed to be complimentary, but you’re supposed to cast a critical eye on folks who hold enormous power and make sure that we are accountable to the people who sent us here and you have done that.” Obama has a skewed sense of reality. The press was never skeptical about Obama, they were sycophants for Obama. We are about to see how the media is supposed to treat anyone who has a position of power, and that is a good thing.

Golfer-In-Chief Obama Plays More Rounds Of Golf Than Any Other President Since Eisenhower, at zerohedge.com. 306 rounds of golf in eight years. I wish he would have played 36 holes of golf everyday for 8 years.

Church Won’t Utter Trump’s Name In Prayers Since He’s ‘Literally’ A Trauma Trigger To Some People, at theblaze.com. I don’t know what is worse. Being so mentally weak that they can’t handle hearing Trumps name, or enabling these people’s mental weakness.

Anti Trump Protesters Hold ‘Cough-In’ At Trump Restaurant In NYC.

Regular people can’t relate to this. Can They?

 

Fake News, Fake Politics, And Fake Policy, by Robert Higgs, at blog.independent.org. Excerpt from the article: “Where government, politics, and policy implementation are concerned, we would be wise to remember that just as in the realm of often-fake news, things are rarely what they purport to be and, indeed, they are often the exact opposite.”

Report: Schools Teach Kids To Hate America Under The Guise Of “Civics“, by Joy Pullmann, at thefederalist.com. We didn’t need a report to tell us this. We’ve known this has been happening for decades.

Loretta Lynch Parting Shot At Your Individual Freedom, at lewrockwell.com. Excerpt from the article: “Attorney General Loretta Lynch secretly signed an order directing the National Security Agency…… to make available raw spying data to all other federal intelligence agencies, which then can pass it on to their counterparts in foreign countries and in the 50 states upon request. She did so, she claimed, for administrative convenience. Yet in doing this, she violated basic constitutional principles that were erected centuries ago to prevent just what she did.” This is not shocking news is it?

Chinese Province Admits It Fabricated Economic Data For Three Years, at zerohedge.com. It’s hard to believe government officials would fudge data in order to distort economic reality. This isn’t happening in the US, is it?

Free Market Economics and Crony Capitalism, by Hunter Lewis, at mises.org. Businesses love free market when they are competing for market share with larger competitors. But when they become the larger business they try to get government to pass regulations that make it harder for upstarts to compete for the market share they currently supply. Big business loves big government because it is the only thing that can keep competitors out of the market.
