“The coordination of men’s activities through central planning or through voluntary cooperation are roads going in very different directions, the first to serfdom and poverty, the second to freedom and plenty.” – F. A. Hayek

 

THE GUN ISSUE

The Dangerous Urge To Do Something, by Judge Andrew Napolitano, at townhall.com.        Wanting the government to “do something” after a tragic situation, almost always leads to a “ready, fire, aim” government solution.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“The government’s job is to preserve personal liberty. Does it do its job when it weakens personal liberty instead? Stated differently, how does confiscating weapons from the law-abiding conceivably reduce their access to madmen? When did madmen begin obeying gun laws?”

“The concept of a “red flag” law — which permits the confiscation of lawfully owned weapons from a person because of what the person might do — violates both the presumption of innocence and the due process requirement of proof of criminal behavior before liberty can be infringed.

The Republican proposal lowers the standard of proof to a preponderance of the evidence — “a more likely than not” standard. That was done because it is impossible to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that an event might happen. This is exactly why the might happen standard is unconstitutional and alien to our jurisprudence.

Red Flag Laws & Mass Shootings: Wrong Solution, by Thomas Massie and John Lott, nationalreview.com.       Remember the false accusations brought against Brett Kavanaugh? What about the false Trump Russia collusion accusations? When an issue becomes politicized, the rule of law goes out the window and the only rule is, win by any means necessary.

Since nothing is more politicized than your Second Amendment right to own arms in order to protect yourself against tyrannical government (not your right to hunt); Do you want the give anyone on the anti-gun left the power to take away your arms on a knowingly false accusation? A false accusation they pay no consequence for bringing?

Individuals in government are attempting to take away your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. As well as your Fifth Amendment rights of due process, the presumption of innocence, as well as taking property without compensation.

Does the fact that individuals in government are attempting to violate your rights, constitute tyrannical actions? Our Constitution is what protects the individual from the tyrannical actions that individuals wielding government power wish to place on us. This is the reason for the Second Amendment in the first place. Our founders understood that government will become tyrannical unless its power was constrained. And arming the people is a constraint on tyrants.

Excerpt from the article:

“While Trump emphasized mental health in last week’s speech about the Texas and Ohio shootings, red-flag laws are not specifically about mental illness. Indeed, only one state law even mentions the term. It’s about figuring out who is going to commit a crime (or suicide). This is the realm of science fiction, and is the theme of the Tom Cruise movie Minority Report. At least the Future Crime division in the movie had the help of psychics.”

“Everyone wants to stop mass public shooters. But we haven’t previously punished people on the basis of little more than a hunch, without any specific guidelines in place. Stopping “future crimes” didn’t work in the movies, and it doesn’t work in real life.

Armed Firefighter Stops Gunman At Missouri Walmart, at firefighternation.com.     Did you see this covered by the main stream media? Neither did I. A good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. When the $#!+ hits the fan, you are the first responder. Cops are second responders. The quicker a good guy with a gun can respond to an active shooter situation, fewer people will get killed or injured. Read (New FBI Data On Active Shooters Shows The Importance Of Armed Citizens, by David French at nationalreview.com.)

SCOTUS Is Considering Hearing This 2A Case…. Dem Senators Aren’t Happy, by Beth Baumann, at townhall.com.      Excerpt from the article:

“The Senators who signed alongside New York City include Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), Mazi Hirono (HI), Richard Blumenthal (CT), Dick Durbin (IL) and Kirsten Gillibrand (NY).”

“According to the group, the Supreme Court should not take up this case because the plaintiffs – gun rights advocates – are looking to “thwart gun safety legislation” and have the desire to “expand the Second Amendment.” The other argument they make: the Second Amendment and gun control is a political issue and the Supreme Court is supposed to be impartial, not a legislative body.”

“Democrats can argue that the Court shouldn’t get involved in political issues, but it’s the dumbest argument they can make. Pretty much every single case the Supreme Court hears is a political issue of some sort. There’s a question of Constitutionality that needs to be addressed. If there wasn’t, the Court wouldn’t get involved.”

“Gun control proponents, like these Senators, are backtracking because they’ve realized they put their foot in their mouth. They’ve realized this case is a big loser for them and it can actually harm their cause.”

 

ECON STUFF

The Rise Of Capitalism, by Ludwig von Mises, at mises.org.   Lets let the great von Mises explain. Here is an expert from the aricle:

“The precapitalistic system of production was restrictive. Its historical basis was military conquest. The victorious kings had given the land to their paladins. These aristocrats were lords in the literal meaning of the word, as they did not depend on the patronage of consumers buying or abstaining from buying on a market.”

“On the other hand, they themselves were the main customers of the processing industries, which, under the guild system, were organized on a corporative scheme. This scheme was opposed to innovation. It forbade deviation from the traditional methods of production. The number of people for whom there were jobs even in agriculture or in the arts and crafts was limited.”

“Under capitalism private property of the factors of production is a social function. The entrepreneurs, capitalists, and land owners are mandataries, as it were, of the consumers, and their mandate is revocable. In order to be rich, it is not sufficient to have once saved and accumulated capital. It is necessary to invest it again and again in those lines in which it best fills the wants of the consumers. The market process is a daily repeated plebiscite, and it ejects inevitably from the ranks of profitable people those who do not employ their property according to the orders given by the public. But business, the target of fanatical hatred on the part of all contemporary governments and self-styled intellectuals, acquires and preserves bigness only because it works for the masses. The plants that cater to the luxuries of the few never attain big size.”

“The shortcoming of 19th-century historians and politicians was that they failed to realize that the workers were the main consumers of the products of industry. In their view, the wage earner was a man toiling for the sole benefit of a parasitic leisure class. They labored under the delusion that the factories had impaired the lot of the manual workers. If they had paid any attention to statistics they would easily have discovered the fallaciousness of their opinion. Infant mortality dropped, the average length of life was prolonged, the population multiplied, and the average common man enjoyed amenities of which even the well-to-do of earlier ages did not dream.”

“However, this unprecedented enrichment of the masses was merely a by-product of the Industrial Revolution. Its main achievement was the transfer of economic supremacy from the owners of land to the totality of the population. The common man was no longer a drudge who had to be satisfied with the crumbs that fell from the tables of the rich.”

“There is a second important difference. In the political sphere, there is no means for an individual or a small group of individuals to disobey the will of the majority. But in the intellectual field private property makes rebellion possible.

The Triumph Of Socialism, by Lew Rockwell, at mises.org.    Excerpt from the article:

“A new BBC poll [reported November 2009] finds that only 11 percent of people questioned around the world — and 29,000 people were asked their opinions — think that free-market capitalism is a good thing. The rest believe in more government regulation.”

“That news must lift the heart of every would-be despot the world over. And it comes as something of a shock twenty years after the collapse of socialism in Russia and Eastern Europe revealed what this system had created: backward societies with citizens who lived short and miserable lives. Then there is the China case, a country rescued from bloody barbarism under communism and transformed into a modern and prosperous country by capitalism.”

“What can we learn? Far from not having learned anything, people have largely forgotten the experience and have developed a love for the ancient fairy tale that all things can be fixed through collectivism and central planning.”

“….. as Rothbard has forcefully argued, free-market capitalism serves no more than a symbolic purpose for the Republican Party and for conservatives. Economic liberty is the utopia that they keep promising to bring us, pending the higher priority of blowing up foreign peoples, jailing political dissidents, crushing the left wing on campus, and routing the Democrats.”

“Once all of this is done, they say, then they will get to the instituting of a free-market economic system. Of course, that day never arrives, and it is not supposed to. Capitalism serves the Republicans the way Communism served Stalin: a symbolic distraction to keep you hoping, voting, and coughing up money.”

“All of which leaves true capitalism — a product of the voluntary society and the sum total of all the exchanges and cooperative acts of people all over the world — with few actual intellectual defenders.”

AOC’s Top Aide Admits Green New Deal About The Economy, Not Climate, by Adam Shaw, at foxnews.com.    This is an admission of what we have known for decades. Socialist central planners have been using the environmental movement to push their collectivist ideas on the masses. They are green on the outside and red on the inside.

What Student Loans And Health Care Have In Common, by Nicholas C. Anderson, at mises.org.   When a third party pays there is no true price discovery.

Money Printing Can’t Replace Saving And Production As The Real Engine Of Economic Growth, by Frank Shostak, at mises.org.    Money printing is supposed to stimulate demand which in turn will lead to economic growth. But consumption doesn’t come before production. A specific something has to be produced before that specific something can be consumed. Production is the increase of wealth. Consumption is the destruction of wealth. Money facilitates the exchange of goods. Excerpt from the article: “money is not the means of payment but just the medium of the exchange. Payment is always done by means of goods and services.”

You Should Totally Trust Our Elite Institutions …. Not, by Kurt Schlichter, at townhall.com.   Excerpt from the article:

“Basically, the best-case scenario here is that our government is unbelievably incompetent, not a particularly soothing thought. But the alternative is that it is corrupt and criminal in ways we can barely imagine. There’s an even less soothing thought. I can’t wait until these Einsteins take over my health care and are no longer restrained by the citizen veto of the guns we bitter normal people have, so far, wisely clung to.

The Road To Hell Is Paved With Virtue-Signaling, by Charles Hugh Smith, at oftwominds.com.    Excerpt from the article:

“Virtue-signaling goes hand in hand with the only “solution” that’s politically correct: throw a borrowed trillion dollars at the “problem”, dance the humba-humba around the bonfire at midnight and hope that magic will resolve the underlying issues.”

Hence the calls for Medicare for all, Universal Basic Income, and free college for all, all paid with borrowed money, despite the virtuous bleatings that “taxes on the rich/robots” will magically pay for trillions of additional dollars to be squandered on corrupt, self-serving cartels.”

(VIDEO) Hong Kong Protesters Sing US Anthem, With US Flags, Against Chinese Tyranny During Airport Occupation, at americanmilitaryews.com.   America is still the beacon of freedom for the rest of the world.

The Dream Team Loses To The Nobodies, by Victor Davis Hanson, at amgreatness.com.    Excerpt from the article:

“… the comical effort to destroy President Trump was a bad replay of the cultural cluelessness of a haughty Hillary Clinton in the last days of the 2016 campaign—the Ivy League prima donna, ensuring her “landslide” to come by futilely campaigning in Georgia and Arizona, fueled by the “analytics” of her whiz kids, while the orange, combed over, and uncouth Trump at her rear played the fox in her blue-wall henhouse. Was it Ivy League smarts to label roughly one-quarter of the country “deplorables” or to go to West Virginia to tell the impoverished they would have no more coal jobs?”

“There is always a civilizational elite of sorts, one based on merit, and it is often divorced from its counterfeit counterpart predicated on aristocracy, credentials, titles, and privilege. Real elites from all walks of life are rewarded for their singular achievement not for their empty reputations and media hype.”

“The last three years have been a painful relearning of that most obvious but forgotten truth that it is what we do rather than who we say we are that truly matters. That the lesson was lost on self-described egalitarians and social justice warriors is the most ironic lesson of all.

Cruz Unloads On The New York Times After Leaked Report Shows They Allegedly Planned To Push Trump-Racism Narrative, by Madison Dibble, at ijr.com.    More proof of main stream media bias. But we’ve known this for years.

Ignorant Liberals Need To Go Visit America, by Kurt Schlichter, at townhall.com.    Excerpt from the article:

“Locked up in their largely child-free urban playgrounds, our garbage elite is utterly unaware of the real America and of real Americans themselves. And it is dangerously unaware of – even actively hostile to – our true history. There are lessons there they need to learn as they continue to bully and provoke the mass of Americans who just wish to be left alone. Anyone who causally suggests confiscating millions of weapons from millions of American patriots and who has not walked through Lexington and Concord is a fool. And, sadly, our blue elite is full of fools.

El-Erian Admits The Era Of “De-Globalization” Is Here, at zerohedge.com.    Excerpt from the article:

“The U.S. economy is strong; however, the multinationals on Wall Street – invested overseas – are exposed. Thus there’s a disconnect and accompanying market volatility.”

“There is nothing that China and the EU can do to stop the de-globalization process: and efforts to stimulate their economy, more quantitative easing (pumping money) while the global supply chains are being shifted, are futile.”

President Trump has purposefully stalled the process of globalization, and is resetting global supply chains. This is bringing massive amounts of wealth back into the United States.”

LET’S LOOK AT CALIFORNIA FOREST FIRES

Humans are in a constant battle for survival against the planet aka the forces of nature. In this instance the planet has won. Unfortunately bad policies by humans have made the planet’s victory more devastating than it should have been. Let’s take a look.

Who Or What Is Really Responsible For The Huge Forest Fires In California, by Bruce Bialosky, at townhallcom. Excerpt from the article: “Let us start with this simple aspect. Forest fires are a normal thing. Often caused by lightning or other natural causes, they are God’s way of clearing forests. In those natural forest clearances, the wildlife that exists in them are threatened or their habitat is destroyed. What has changed is mankind’s intervention in the natural process.

If you believe that global warming is making life more challenging for forest management, then you should support proper forest clearance. Otherwise we will be left with even more intense fires.”

“….what is needed is more active forest clearance and clearance of the underbrush. More controlled fires when the risks are minimized. Budget restraints are why Forest Service is not doing these things now…..The Forest Service was spending 85% of the budget on forest maintenance and 15% on fire suppression. Over the recent years …..they began to spend more money on fire suppression and less on clearance causing a vicious cycle of less money on clearance.”

“While doing the clearance the Forest Service is controlled by a myriad off federal laws which limit their actions. These laws include The Clean Air Ace, Natural Forest Management Act, Endangered Species Act and National Environmental Policy Act to name a few. The Forest Service must put information out to the public before they do their clearance work. They are not always questioned but quite often interest groups jump in armed withe legal briefs to stop the planned work.”

“Just a thought: If you have concern about destroying the natural habitat and thus limit the proper clearance of the areas in question, what do you say about what happens to the improperly cleared forest during a major fire when the habitat is destroyed and the animals’ lives are put at risk?

California Wildfires Destroy Homes And Lives. Why Do Regulators Encourage Building In Fire Zones?, by Christian Britscghi, at reason.com. The true cost of insuring against risky activities is revealed when the price of insurance is allowed to rise in accordance with risk assessment. When individuals in government pass laws, or voters pass ballot initiatives, that suppress the true cost of risk, it incentivizes the risky behaviour. Putting more people at risk.

Blaming Climate – Ignoring Incompetence, by Paul Dreissen, at cfact.org. Excerpt from the article: “Do the bureaucrats (and environmental groups) make any attempt to factor in the horrendous air pollution and utter destruction from the monstrous fires their decrees cause by delaying or blocking brush clearing or controlled burns? Let no one forget that these pressure groups and government employees share the blame...”

Green Policies Fanned California’s Raging Wildfires, by Bonner Cohen, at cfact.org. Private land owners have to navigate the maze of the state’s bureaucracy to obtain permission to use fire prevention measures on their land. Should these individuals really be considered the property owners if government restricts what they are allowed to do or not do with their land? And should individuals in government be responsible when a persons property is damaged?

26 Photo Proofs That Nature Will Take Over Anyway, at brightside.me. Check out the pictures in this post. They show how dynamic the planet is. Here are a few examples.

 

GOVERNMENT IS IN ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL SCAM

Government policies are a quest for power, money and control disguised as environmental do-goodism.

The Economic Fall And Political Rise Of Renewable Energy, by Robert Bradley Jr, at masterresource.org. Excerpt from the article: “The modern history of wind power and on-grid solar power can be summarized in four words: economically incorrect, politically correct. U.S. companies invested heavily in renewable energy technologies in the 1970s/80s only to suffer losses and, in most cases, to exit. Only massive taxpayer and consumer subsidies in the 1990s reversed these market verdicts, leading to today’s government dependence.”

Exposing The ‘Regulatory Groupthink’ Of California’s Rooftop Solar Mandate, at zerohedge.com. Why would you mandate using higher cost energy instead of lower cost energy? This reminds me of a statement by Robert Bradley Jr. ““When Government tries to pick winners and losers, it typically picks losers. Why? Because the free market consumers pick winners to leave the losers for Government.”

Government Motors’ Proposed 50-State Standard, (Once Federally Saved, GM Seeks More Aid), by Donn Dears, at masterresource.org. In a free market, GM can’t force consumers to purchase electric vehicles. So instead of trying to create a better mouse trap that consumers will buy, they are going to get government to that force taxpayers to subsidize the purchase of EVs. This will bring down the price, but not the cost, of these vehicles that are proven market losers. Once again government intervention in the market props up a non productive activity, by shifting the cost to taxpayers.

This Election Mattered, by Eric Peters, at straightlinelogic.com. Excerpt from the article: “If you don’t think elections matter, wait about five years. Then go shopping for a new car. The government is doing to force us into its vehicles of choice whether we like it or not, and with the Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives, there’s not much we can do about it.”

France Suffers Anti-Carbon Tax Revolt: Massive Road Blocks Against Macron’s Diesel Tax, at zerohedge.com. Finally the French people think government is too intrusive and are willing to fight back.

Never Snow In Texas? Experts Warn Decreased Solar Activity Will Shatter All Global Climate Models, at zerohedge.com. There are many variables involved in climate and weather. Man can’t possibly know everything needed to take on the task of controlling the climate of the planet. Let alone implement changes if he did know. Sun spot activity is one of the variables affecting weather and climate. And it is in a cyclical decline. Less solar activity means cooler temperatures. So in order to counter act the lower temperatures associated with lower solar activity should we pump more CO2 into the atmosphere by letting our cars run all the time. This would warm up the planet according to the “experts”. Would it work? Lets hope the sun gets more active so we don’t experience a ‘mini ice age’ like we did in the 17th century. A colder planet is worse for man than a warmer planet. Gentlemen start your engines!

Politicians & Police Set Tyranny’s Perfect Example: Gun Confiscation, at zerohedge.com. Although these new “red flag” laws were passed to protect people from themselves, they are going to get some of these people killed at the hands of the police.

As Brexit Options Dwindle, New Momentum For A 2nd Referendum, by Stepen Castle, at mytimes.com. Theresa May as well as other EU type bureaucrats don’t want Brexit to take place. They are lying about the need for an agreement to get out of the EU. They want to stall taking action long enough to get another vote on Brexit in hopes that will go down this time. Here is my simple Brexit agreement. The laws that existed before the formation of the EU are back in existence. Here is my trade agreement with the EU: Individuals in Great Britain can trade with individuals in the EU without government interference through taxes, subsidies and regulations. That’s it.

Lawmakers Leak Plan For $3 Billion Pension-Fund Bailout, at zerohedge.com. Who do you think bails out all of these ponzi scheme pension plans? We the tax payers will pay for this bailout. I have said that at some point someone will have to pay for this retirement debt. Either the retirees will pay in lower benefits, or tas payers will pay in higher taxes.

New York’s Subway Riders Are Going Galt, by Monica Showalter, at americanthinker.com. When the quality of a product declines as the price of that product rises, there comes a point when consumers look for a substitute. The subway thinks it has a monopoly just as the taxi cartel did. But as alternatives to the subway become available (think Uber), subway ridership is declining. But we’ve seen this movie before. Tax payers will subsidize any loss in revenue, just as our tax dollars subsidize Amtrak and the post office.

ESPN Loses 2 more Million Subscribers In 2018, at zerohedge.com. Here is an example of “the creative destruction of the market”. This is happening to all cable channels, not just ESPN. Internet TV alternatives like Hulu, Sling, PlayStation and Netflix etal, are taking market share. Cable will adjust. This adjustment is a market reality and a good thing for the economy as a whole.

Clinton Foundation Donations Plummet 90%, at zerohedge.com. As the Clintons lost their power to pass out favors via Federal government largess (tax payer money), donations to their money laundering scheme dried up. Who is shocked by this?

White House Press Pass Has Nothing To Do With The First Amendment, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “….the very premise that a White House press pass is a critical component of a free press is questionable at best. After all, the press room, the communications staff, and the entire White House media apparatus exists to make the president look good…..not to divulge any information the White House doesn’t want released.

The Difference Between An Obama Judge And A Trump Judge, at zerohedge.com. John Roberts made a statement saying there is neither Obama judges or Trump judges or Bush judges or Clinton judges. We have an independent judiciary. If this is true why do leftist try to bring their cases before the 9th Circuit? The Supreme Court overturns the 9th Circuit court 80% of the time. If there is no difference, why are leftists trying so aggressively to stop Trump from appointing conservative judges? Remember the Brett Kavanaugh circus?

 

THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS

For These Gifts We Are Truly Thankful, by Kevin Williamson, at nationalreview.com. Let us be thankful for property rights and free markets. Here is an excerpt from the article: “Charity is honorable and necessary. We all – but especially those of us who have been blessed with so much – have a positive moral obligation to help the poor. But when we speak of the distribution and consumption of goods, we ignore the more fundamental question of how those goods get produced in the first place. God may have given us the Earth as a gift, but He does not plant potatoes or raise pigs or build the refrigerated trucks that keep people far from the farms and ranches from starving to death. He leaves that to us, one of many ways in which we share in His creative work.”

Here is a truth that almost never is spoken: All of the money that ever has been saved and invested in profit-seeking productive business enterprises has done incalculably more for the poor – more by many orders of magnitude – than has all of the money that ever has been put to charitable users, formal or informal, mainly by preventing them from ever being poor in the first place. That Saving and investment, and the innovation and labor that have gone along with them, are the only thing in the history of this little blue planet that has make its inhabitants less poor. Of course we invite the hungry to our table. A hell of a lot of good it would do if we didn’t have anything to put on their plates other than nice intentions or sanctimonious sentiments.
