Must Reads For The Week 8/19/17

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Speculates That Barcelona Attack May Be “Copycat” Of Charlottesville, at zerohedge.com. He really didn’t say that did he? Running into crowds of pedestrians with vehicles (preferably trucks) has been the new modus operandi of the terrorists for quite some time now (read here).

Before “Fake News”, America Invented “Pseudo Events”, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “Rather than attempt to supply a detailed look at who was at the event, what was done, and what the participants – from both sides – have to say about it, we are instead exposed primarily to what people in Washington DC, and the political class in general, think about the events in which they were not directly involved. This focus illustrates …. a bias toward focus on the national intellectual class rather than on events that take place outside the halls of official power. Note, however, that those quoted rarely have any special knowledge about the events themselves. Their opinions are covered not because they are knowledgeable, but because their quotations fit easily into a narrative that the media wishes to perpetuate.

Why Isn’t Communism As Hated As Nazism? by Dennis Prager, at Prager University.

Privatize The Public Monuments, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org. “Public” ownership via tax payer dollars means there will always be bickering because agreement on what should be erected is impossible. Private ownership means one person has the right to decide.

America’s Right To Self-Government Is Under Attack, at theburningplatform.com. The intellectual elite has always thought they can run our lives better than we can. The election of the outsider Trump has put them in a position they won’t accept. They have no real positions of power in the federal government but what they are really afraid of is they are about to lose political power. Political power is all about verbal sleight of hand. It is an illusion, a narrative if you will, created by propaganda and lies. Most people are figuring out that the media narrative is fake. Without the illusion, it is easy to see though the political game. I would say Trump is Toto pulling back the curtain on the Wizard of Oz, but Trump isn’t that subtle. He is more like a pit bull creating such a ruckus ripping the curtain down, we have no choice but to look.

Why Do The Super Rich Promote Socialism, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Socialism (government intervention into the economy) does not redistribute wealth more evenly. Socialism allows wealth to be controlled by individuals at the top. There is no middle class. Only the haves and the have-nots.

“The Maduro Diet” – Venezuelans Suffer Drastic Weight Loss As Hunger Crisis Strikes, at zerohedge.com. This is where socialism (government planning of an economy) leads to. Why isn’t this a bigger story…….? Because it doesn’t fit the narrative of the media when it comes to socialist central planning.

We Have A  Single-Payer System, And It’s Killing Veterans Like Me, by Jonathan LaForce, at thefederalist.com. When Obamacare collapses and politicians talk about implementing a single payer healthcare system. Tell them the VA is a single payer system, that has failed. Why would we want to try the same failure on a much bigger scale?

Wasserman Schultz IT Staffer Indicted By Grand Jury On 4 counts, at zerohedge.com. Hmmmm!

FBI Reopens’ FOIA Case On Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting After Getting Caught In Lie, at zerohedge.com. Hmmmm!

‘Inconvenient’ Fact: Morgan Stanley Says Electric Cars Create more CO2 than They Save, at zerohedge.com. Excerpt from the article: “The carbon emissions generated by the electricity required for electric vehicles are greater than those saved by cutting out direct vehicle emissions.”

Trans Juggernaut Wants Your Kids. Public Schools are Just The Beginning, at thefederalist.com. Excerpt from the article: “….”Nature…tends to strike back, with the likely victims in this case being vulnerable and impressionable youngsters who, as confused adults, will pay the price for their elders’ fashionable fantasies.” This is likely why the transgender movement is targeting the young: They are vulnerable and impressionable, prepuberty pose better as either sex and therefore look less terrifying than adult transgenders, and once locked into the trans body morph will never truly be able to escape. devastated people are prime candidates for exploitation by their pretend advocates. Also, locking in trans-policies now is a way to preclude debate before more extensive data and personal experience can fuel the inevitable backlash. Of course this is bad for kids, but it’s not about kids. they’re just pawns, as usual. It’s about politics.

Why Did The Democratic South Become Republican? By Prof. Carol Swain, at Prager University.http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-08-17/wasserman-schultz-it-staffer-indicted-4-counts
