New FCC Ruling Gives The Government Control Over 5G Internet Rollout, at zerohedge.com. Excerpt from the article: “The rollout of 5G is expected to herald the beginning of Smart Cities, where driverless cars, pollution sensors, cell phones, traffic lights, and thousands of other devices interact….This push towards ‘Smart’ Surveillance cities has the FCC approving a new rule limiting the power of local authorities.” This means the Federal Government has the ability to use 5G for its own purposes.

Google Employees Quit Over Controversial China Search Engine Project, Report Says, by Chris Ciaccia, at foxnews.com. Google would never do anything like this in the US…Would they?  Google is helping China develop the search engine app called Dragonfly.

A $240 Gallon Gas Tax To Fight Global Warming? New UN Report Suggests Carbon Pricing, by Michael Bastasch, at dailycaller.com. CO2 is not a pollutant. You don’t have to be a “scientist” to know this fact. Global warming is being used by politicians and tyrants (is there a difference) to control individuals, increase the amount of money taken by government and make certain people wealthy. It has nothing to do with saving the planet.

WTI Slumps To 2-Week Lows After Biggest Crude Build In 20 Months, at zerohedge.com. When I see an article lamenting the falling price of oil. I have to ask: Why is a lower price for oil a bad thing? The price is neither bad or good in and of itself. Of course producers want to be able to sell oil at as high a price as possible. And Consumers want to purchase oil at as low a price as possible. Prices send signals through the oil market to producers and consumers. A high price incentivizes producers to supply more oil while at the same time it creates an incentive for consumers to consume less. Lower prices do just the opposite. Prices are how scarce resources are rationed in a free market. No Government central planning board could  possibly do this job as efficiently as prices accomplish this task in a market.

$15 Minimum Wage Disrupts NYC’s Car Wash Industry Leading To closings, Automation, Job Losses And Black Market Lawbreakers, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. Minimum wage laws are price controls on labor. Free market prices  ration the scarce resource of labor to it’s most productive use. Interference in the pricing system distorts labor markets. Business closings, job losses, automation and black markets are the unintended consequences of interfering in the price of labor.

Yes Inequality Is A Problem – When Caused By The Government, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “Government regulation as a means of increasing inequality has a long history. Historically, favoring some groups over others via government regulation has been called mercantilism, corporatism, crony capitalism, and other names. These regulations included government restrictions on trade, government corporations founded to exercise monopolies, private firms receiving subsidies, government restrictions on private businesses, and money printing. The effect of all of these policies has always been to increase the wealth and privilege of some groups at the expense of others.

80% Of Americans Think Political Correctness Is A National Problem, by Joy Pullmann, at the federalist.com. Excerpt from the article: “Contrary to a common cultural narrative, the poll finds large majorities of Americans of all ages, income levels, and racial backgrounds oppose political correctness, even while 82 percent also think “hate speech” is a problem. This may suggest Americans believe thought and speech censorship is not the best way to address rude and discriminatory behavior.”

Kavanaugh Casualties: The Left, Never Trumpers, #MeToo, by Victor Davis Hanson, at nationalreview.com. There are consequences of the attack on Kavanaugh are far reaching. Another great article by VDH. Excerpts from the article: “The new progressives recently have come to believe that they gain traction by the theater of disrupting senate hearings, cornering senators in elevators, stalking them on the way to work, doxing their opponents on the Internet, ane during the hearings throwing out the concept of due process. Any means is deemed permissible to enact visions of social justice, given legislative and executive power is lost for not – and as if proverbially ordinary Americans who watched the televised circus might applaud the performers………And if here was any stereotypical lesson to be had, it was that many on the senatorial panel and the legions of advisers and lawyers on the Ford Team, as well as Ford herself, by their class, education, and comportment, increasingly seem quite different, quite more privileged, and quite more well-absorbed than most average Americans of all backgrounds who have little sympathy for the psychodramas of a pampered and professional class.”

Is Cultural Marxism America’s New Mainline Ideology? by Antony Mueller, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “Another name for the neo-Marxism of increasing popularity in the United States is cultural Marxism. This theory says that the driving force behind the socialist revolution in no the proletariat – but the intellectuals. While Marxism has largely disappeared from the workers’ movement, Marxist theory flourishes today in cultural institutions, in the academic world, and in the mass media……the Marxist concept of the “proletariat” as a revolutionary force was an illusion. At the example of the Soviet Union, one could also see that socialism could not function without a dictatorship. These considerations brought the leading Marxist thinkers to the conclusion that a different strategy would be required to establish socialism. Communist authors spread the insight that the socialist dictatorship must come in disguise. Before socialism can succeed, the existing culture must change. Control of the culture must precede political control.”

“Because of the character of this movement as a promoter of group conflict, neo-Marxism is ineffectual to serve as an instrument of gaining coherent political power as it were necessary for a dictatorship. Yet this does not mean the the neo-Marxist movement has o impact. On the contrary: because of its inherent contradictions, the ideology of cultural Marxism is the main source of the profound confusion that has grabbed almost every segment of the modern Western societies and which is about to swell into even more dangerous proportions.
