Survivors of Communism Warn About America’s Future: ‘Americans Became Soviet’ Through Cowardice, at justthenews.com. “From the article: “Survivors of communism are concerned about America’s future as they see Marxism spreading”

“Tatiana Menaker, a refusenik who escaped from the Soviet Union after not being allowed to emigrate, said that when she attended San Francisco State University, she “found such brainwashing machine of Marxism, which I even didn’t have in Russia, in the Soviet Union. American professors are all in delirium of Marxism.”

“Menaker also recalled how she “was kicked five times from Facebook, seven times from Quora. Actually, censorship in America reminds me of my old Soviet Union.”

“I feel I am at home now, finally,” she also said, laughing.”

“Menaker later added: “Americans used to be nations of brave. Now it’s a nation of cowards. [I]t’s not tyrants who create slaves. It’s slaves who create tyrants. And Americans became slavish. We do whatever we’re told to do. They give everything we’re asked to give. It’s Soviet Union.”

What is sad is that many Americans who have lived here their whole lives don’t see this move toward Tyranny.

Secret Service Agents Knock Jen Psaki’s Response To Attacks By Biden’s Dog, at justthenews.com. If a press secretary would spin or lie about something as unimportant as the presidents dog biting a secret service agent. Do you think they would spin or lie about things that are more politically important?

Palm Springs Looks To Create A Universal Basic Income Pilot For Trans Residents. at NPR.com. I may be nit picking but, “Universal” mean everyone. Doesn’t it? This is an example of socialist central planning being accepted as a great idea, without any rational thinking.

AG Committee’s Cammack: ‘Out of Touch’ Dems Ignore Food Crisis, Fixate On ‘Tesla Charging Stations’. at justthenews.com. Democrats are marching down the green energy road to serfdom. Just another example of Socialist economic central planning. Great idea! Lets exchange the decisions of some “experts” for the decisions of 100’s of millions of consumers.

Political Propaganda? Look At The Time Line Of These Articles.

Biden Wants Congress To Slap Fees On Oil Companies Not Using Drilling Permits On Public Lands, at justthenews.com. This article was published on March 31 2022 at 12:46 PM. –Biden Announces Release Of Oil From Strategic Petroleum Reserve, Blames Putin, Oil Companies, at justthenews.com. This article was published On March 31, 2022 at 2:56 PM. –Oil Execs Defend Selves Over House Democrats Claims Of Profiteering, Gouging At The Gas Station, at justthenews.com. This article was published on April 6 2022. –Biden Administration Will Open More Public Land To Oil Drilling, at justthenews.com. This article was published on April 16, 2022.

Blaming the oil companies for not drilling on land that doesn’t have oil under it, is like giving me a permit to fish for Blue Marlin in the Ohio River.

Then the administration decides to release 1 million barrels of oil a day from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to ease rising gas prices. Which means they do understand the law of supply and demand. But, all of the energy policies put in place by this administration from day one, have caused less oil to be produced in the U.S. So, since they understand supply and demand, can we assert the administration wants the price of oil to go up? The Strategic Petroleum Reserve was set up for emergencies. Not for politicians to save themselves from the consequences of their policies. Tax payers are going to get stuck refilling the Reserve with oil that cost around $100 a barrel. Instead of filling the Reserve with lower priced oil like Trump wanted to (read here). Buy high sell low only works when tax payers are paying the bill.

Blaming Putin is spin. The price of oil was in the high 90’s before Putin stepped foot on Ukrainian soil.

And as sure as night follows day, oil executives will be dragged in front of congress every time the price of oil sky rockets. I’ve seen this happen over and over again. Once again this is political theater to find a scapegoat for the consequences of government intervention into the economy.

And now the Administration is going to open up more land for drilling.

Why would we believe anything a politician or bureaucrat says? History tells us not to trust individuals who have the ability to wield government power (aka politicians and bureaucrats).

Biden Infuriates Environmentalists, Oil Refiners By Allowing More Ethanol In Gas To Lower Prices, at zerohedge.com. Let’s try to sift through the BS.

The overriding point is, Politicians are not “public servants”. They are self interested actors playing on a political stage.

Biden needs lower gas prices to survive the upcoming election cycle. So he (the EPA) will do away with regulations which disallow high ethanol gasoline being sold during the summer months. Higher ethanol content lowers the price of these blends. But the reason high ethanol gasoline is disallowed during the summer months is because it causes smog. So Biden is willing to sacrifice his beloved environmental and climate change issues on the alter of his parties political future.

Senators Grassley and Ernst, Republicans from Iowa, praised this news. Why? Iowa is the leading corn producer in the U.S. and 33% of our corn crop is used to produce ethanol. So it helps Grassley and Ernst, politically, and everyone involved in the ethanol industry, financially, at the expense of millions of consumers and tax payers who are paying the cost of the ethanol scam.

But let me ask you, does it makes sense to use carbon based fuels to plant, cultivate and harvest corn (which is food), truck it to an ethanol plant, then turn it into fuel used to power cars. Put simply, we use diesel to produce food which is then turned into fuel. Now factor into the equation that a molecule of ethanol produces less energy than a molecule of gasoline or diesel. So even if you pay less for ethanol, you are getting less miles per gallon than what you would get if you used gasoline.

Why are we are going through this whole ethanol charade? We are wasting time, land, labor and resources to produce less energy. It would cost less if we paid everyone involved in the ethanol industry to do nothing. They would be like welfare recipients leaching off the tax payer. But it would be better because we would save all the time, land, labor and resources being wasted on ethanol production. And we would use higher energy gasoline and diesel in our vehicles, all being a net gain.

And what about the potential grain shortage because of the Ukrainian Russian war. We could use the resources to produce ………….. uh………food.

Huh…………

Soros-Funded Prosecutor In St. Louis Admits To Wrongdoing In Greitens Case, at justthenews.com. Here is an example of using the legal system for political purposes. Just like the Russian collusion hoax.

In Shadow Of Hunter Biden Probe, Democrats Grapple With Corruption Scandals Galore In Own Ranks, at justthenews.com. Corruption and abuses of power happen to both Republicans and Democrats. But you don’t hear about the corruption on the Democrat side as much because of the cover up by the main stream media. Here are some examples.

Secret Service Agents Bribed By Men With Iran, Pakistan Visas Pretending To Be DHS Agents, at saracarter.com. Should this be an important story? –Judge Declines To Jail Two Men Accused Of Impersonating Federal Agents, And Giving Gifts, at justthenews.com. I guess not!

Dozens Of Disney Employees Have Been Arrested For Child Sex Crimes, at thenationalpulse.com. Excerpt from the article: “Amidst Disney’s opposition to Florida’s falsely monikered “Don’t Say Gay” bill – which aims to protect children from exposure to harmful gender ideologies and activism – the company’s long history of employing individuals arrested for a variety of child sex crimes has come under scrutiny.”

Hard to believe that sexual predators and pedophiles would gravitate to a profession that caters to children (their potential victims).

In a totally unrelated article –NYT Writer Admits Schools Are Grooming Children Into LGBT Identities, at thefederalist.com. They are grooming children to be future victims of sexual predators and pedophiles.

The Left Is Freaking Out Over Elon Musk Because Twitter Rigs The Game For Democrats, at thefederalist.com. Tyrants don’t want any arguments against their ideology. They hate free speech because their world view can’t stand up to scrutiny.

Robert Reich Goes Full Orwellian: More Freedom Is Tyranny, at zerohedge.com. Excerpt from the article: “Reich explains that it is not about freedom by tyranny. More free speech means less freedom.”

It is the type of argument commonly used in China and other authoritarian nations–and an increasing number of American academics and writers. Indeed, his column is reminiscent of the professors who have called for the adoption of the Chinese model for censoring views on the Internet.”

Reich tells people not to be lured by freedom of speech: “Musk says he wants to ‘free’ the internet. But what he really aims to do is make it even less accountable than it is now.” What Reich refers to as “accountability” is being accountable to those like himself who can filter out views and writings that are deemed harmful for readers.”

They can’t lose control of the narrative because their ideology can only survive if it isn’t scrutinized.

(EXCLUSIVE) Experts: ‘Omicron Covid -19 Likely Came Fro A Lab, Too‘, at sharylattkisson.com. Excerpt from the article: “Now, some scientists examining the virus have concluded “vast” genetic mutations that likely occurred in a lab setting are what makes Omicron spread so quickly.

“Omicron was first detected in Botswana, South Africa, reported to have been brought by a foreign delegation from a country officials will not identify, making it more difficult for outside observers to track its origin.”

“To many scientists, the genetic differences that made Omicron so quickly transmissible caused it to immediately stand out as unlikely to be a result of a natural evolution…

Read this article. There is a lot here.

FDA Panel Mulls COVID Booster Issues Despite ‘Insufficient’ Data, at medpagetoday.com. Excerpt from the article: “Monto backed up his support for an 80% vaccine effectiveness threshold by saying that with the “development of antivirals and therapeutics, you can’t prevent everything with an evolving virus.”

“The need for revaccination will be dictated by the virus more than by us,” he noted.”

Marks said that VRBPAC would meet again in early summer to discuss “more specific detail” regarding the composition of future boosters to “stay ahead of future variants and outbreaks”

There is a lot to digest in this article. But this sounds like they are chasing all the COVID variants instead of getting out in front of the mutations. It seems like the “vaccines” and “boosters” are more like flu shots. And flu shots have varying degrees of effectiveness, if any at all. But antivirals and therapeutics work to fight the symptoms, so the individual can survive and create natural immunity.

Shouldn’t individuals be given the information and then be allowed to decide what coarse to take? Of course they should!

Must Reads For The Week 8/6/19

August 7, 2019

“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

 

PEOPLE ARE PUSHING BACK AGAINST THE RULING ELITE

Moscow Police Use Force To End Election Protest, Arrest 600, at politico.com.    Excerpt from the article: “Police cracked down hard on an unsanctioned demonstration in Moscow for a second weekend in a row, detaining about 600 people protesting the exclusion of some independent and opposition candidates from September city council elections.”

“The issue taps growing dissatisfaction with a political environment dominated by the Kremlin-aligned United Russia party, in which dissenting voices are marginalized, ignored or repressed.

Hong Kong Protesters, Police Clash As Demonstrations Target Chinese Traders, at reuters.com.    Excerpt from the article: “Sometimes violent, the protests have drawn in millions of people, with hundreds even storming the legislature on July 1 to oppose a now-suspended extradition bill that would have allowed criminal suspects in Hong Kong to be sent to China to face trial in courts under ruling Communist Party control.”

“Critics see the bill as a threat to Hong Kong’s rule of law. Chief Executive Carrie Lam this week said the bill was “dead” after having suspended it last month, but opponents vow to settle for nothing short of its formal withdrawal.”

Iranians Manage To Surf The Web Despite Tide Of Censorship, by Mehdi Fattahi, at apnews.com.    Excerpt from the article: “Before Nazilla Akbari can check out the latest offerings on Twitter or YouTube, she scrolls through an array of icons on her smartphone, searching for the right workaround to bypass state censors.”

“It’s a cat-and-mouse game that has become second nature in Iran, where the clerically-led government restricts access to popular social media sites and where U.S. sanctions create other barriers.”

“Every day I struggle for 40 minutes just to get connected to uncensored internet,” Akbari, a 30-year-old software developer, told The Associated Press. “Even after I do, the internet is so slow that I have difficulty even watching a short video.

Can Boris Turn A Hard Brexit Into A Tax Cut? by Alasdair Macleod, at mises.org. The people who voted for Brexit are going to win. UK bureaucrats who want to remain in the EU, and EU bureaucrats in Brussels don’t realize it yet but they have lost.

Our Ruling Elites Have No Idea How Much We Want To See Them All In Prison Jumpsuits, by Charles Hugh Smith, at oftwominds.com.    Excerpt from the article: “Our Ruling Elites have no idea how many of us already want to see them all in prison jumpsuits, and they also have no idea how fast the moral revulsion with their corrupt “leadership” might spread. Scanning the distracted, consumerist rabble from the great heights of their wealth and power, they reckon the capacity for moral outrage is limited, leaving them safe from any domestic crusade.”

“They also trust that the citizenry can be further fragmented, further distracted, and so they will continue to be invulnerable. Or worst case scenario, a few especially venal villains will need to be sacrificed, and then all will return to the bliss of Neofeudal exploitation.”

“But they may have misread the American citizenry, just as they’ve misread history.”

 

THE POLITICS OF GUN CONTROL

Media Focus On Mass Shootings Shows Disconnect From Actual Crime Trends, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org.    Excerpt from the article: “…mass shootings are but a very small part of larger crime trends. And, the overall trend has been downward for decades.”

The Myth Of Political Inaction On Gun Control, by Tho Bishop, at mises.org. We don’t want one size fits all Federal laws related to guns. Let each state decide how it wants to deal with gun violence. The Roe v. Wade one size fits all decision didn’t solve anything. It just helped erode civility.

Excerpt from the article: “If half the country views the right to bear arms as a natural right that serves as a vital bulwark against government tyranny, and the other views it as an immoral defense of normalizing weapons of war, there is very little room for compromise. Instead, these political disagreements become a battle of the politically powerful vs. the politically vanquished, with the sides being determined every two years. Control over the senate or the judicial system becomes a matter of self-defense. The result is the saying of “politics as war through other means” taking on a very literal reading.”

Why Red Flag Laws Are Not A Good Solution To Mass Shootings, by Dana Loesch, at thefederalist.com.   Excerpt from the article: “The people who report your Twitter account and your Facebook pages because they dislike your opinion want you to trust a government-run system where people can, without serious penalty of law, report you and have your property confiscated before you’re allowed to defend yourself in court weeks, even months, later.”

“Politicians refer to law-abiding, gun-owning Americans as “domestic security threats,” yet want you to trust them with implementing such a system. I’m talking about red flag laws and the risk they pose to due process—you know, those other rights after the Second Amendment in the Constitution.”

Chicago Sees Most Violent Weekend Of The Year With 55 People Shot, by Tristan Justice, at thefederalist.com.   Why does the media ignore the 1600 shot this year in Chicago? The answer obvious?

The Dirty Secret About Gun Control In Latin America, by Jose Nino, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article:   “By just glancing at Latin America’s current gun policies, we see a region that is in desperate need of more pro-gun laws. Countries like Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela offer lurid accounts of what happens when most of the population is effectively disarmed when facing real criminal threats.”

“Although the U.S. has work to do in restoring gun rights, Americans take their right to self-defense for granted when we look at other countries like Mexico, which have prohibitive gun restrictions in comparison.”

“Gun control laws only keep the law-abiding from defending themselves against criminals. If we’re being honest, these types of laws should be viewed as criminal empowerment schemes. No amount of virtue signaling, or demagoguery will change that.”

Mexicans Are Safer In El Paso Than In Mexico, by Ryan McMaken, at mises.org. The Mexican government has stated it may take action against the US because Mexican nationals weren’t protected in the recent shootings in El Paso. We know this is a political play.      Excerpt from the article: “…it’s hard to believe that Mexican politicians are truly indignant about the deaths of Mexican nationals in the US when Mexico’s homicide rate is nearly five times that of the US, and among the worst in the world. Moreover, Mexico’s homicide rate in 2017 rose to the highest level ever recorded, climbing to 24.8 per 100,000. Preliminary data suggests 2018 may be even worse.”

“More than 30,000 homicide investigations were opened in Mexico in 2017. In the US, which has 200 million more residents than Mexico, homicides total around 17,000.”

You Never Let A Serious Crisis Go To Waste.” at austrianaddict.com. I wrote this article in 2012 after the Sandy Hook shootings. Since then whenever there is a “mass” shooting in the US, this article always gets a lot of hits.

Always remember politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists and activists operate in the political world. Politics is the lens through which they view everything. Lobbyists and activists are paid to influence politicians and bureaucrats who have the power of Government behind them enforcing their edicts. Because of this underlying reality, you should never trust what these people say or do, and always question their motives.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL STUFF

Plastic Bans: Imaginary Benefits, Real Costs, by Robert P. Murphy, at mises.org.   Excerpt from the article:     “The Canadian proposal to ban single-use plastics is yet another triumph of symbolism over substance: The measure will do virtually nothing to reduce plastic waste in the ocean and it won’t “help the economy.” However, what it will do, if enacted, is increase greenhouse gas emissions, increase the spread of disease, and greatly inconvenience consumers.”

Recycling: Wasting Resources While Claiming To Conserve Them, by Lee Friday, at mises.org.   Excerpt from the article:      “Profits tell us that a firm has taken various factors of production (labor, raw materials, land, buildings, machines etc.) and combined them to produce products that are valued by consumers, i.e., the products are worth more than the sum of their parts, which means these resources have not been wasted. In contrast, losses tell us that a firm has taken various factors of production and combined them to produce products that are worth less than the sum of their parts, which means these resources have been wasted!”

“Therefore, in order to determine the viability of a recycling enterprise, a free market firm must estimate the cost of committing resources (labor, trucks, machines, recycling plants, fuel etc.) to the task of collecting and processing recyclable materials. It must then estimate the revenue it expects to receive for its recycled products. If it believes the enterprise will be profitable, it will proceed. The firm will have decided that it is cheaper to make certain products from recycled materials than to make the same products from raw materials. In this way, resources in the ground are conserved.”

“However, if the firm does not believe the enterprise would be profitable, it will not proceed with recycling. But resources in the ground are still conserved, because a determination has been made that it is uneconomical to extract resources from the ground to build and maintain the trucks, plants, and machinery necessary for recycling.”

“This is the point constantly overlooked by the public when governments involve themselves in recycling. In our rush to conserve resources, we forget that resources are required for the task of recycling, and we just assume the government is doing the right thing. We must remember that the government operates outside the marketplace, and therefore does not concern itself with profits and losses. When it wants more revenue, it simply takes it from us. Thus, the government has little incentive to minimize costs, which means it has little incentive to conserve resources.”

Non-Renewable Resources Never Really Run Out, by Joakim Book, at mises.org.   Excerpt from the article:     “In 1944 the world’s amount of proven oil reserves were 51bn barrels of oil. In 2018 the world’s proven oil reserves were almost 1,500 bn (BP estimates 1,730bn), i.e., about thirty times that of 1944 — and this despite humanity’s pretty voracious appetite for oil during the seven-odd decades in between. Anyone immersed in the naïve resource depletion theory has to incredulously ask himself — how can this be?”

“Simply put: we found more of it.”

“Markets with well-defined property rights use prices and profit motives to guide the allocation of resources — including, in this case, the investment resources that go into prospecting for oil or digging up metals in the ground. Markets use prices to convey information about the present and future availability of raw materials — with innovation allowing us to find, extract, and use them more efficiently and substitution regulating our want for them.”

Must Reads For The Week 5/4/19

May 6, 2019

“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

 

Freedom Or Government Control – There Is No True “Third Way“, by Bradley Thomas, at mises.org.  The above quote by Hayek begs the question; Which direction are our politicians attempting to force us? On the one side you have the new socialists in the Democrat party who aren’t afraid to tell us the direction they want to take America. Along with the establishment of the Democrat party who won’t admit the direction they want to take America. Along with the establishment of the Republican party who tell us they want to go in the direction of freedom, but whose policies take us in the opposite direction. Along with citizens who work for the administrative state and citizens who receive the largess of the administrative state. On the other side are citizens and some politicians who want to shrink the size and scope of government which would take us in the direction of freedom and plenty.

The middle of the road third way is chaotic. As we are witnessing in the America today.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“The defining difference between socialism and capitalism, as described by Ludwig von Mises is “the substitution of public control of the means of production for private control.” More properly understood, socialism would eliminate the private ownership of the means of production by capitalists.”

“So efforts to impose “more aggressive regulation of markets” – which typically amount to more confiscatory taxes and stricter government regulations – may fall short of actual socialism, but erode the defining characteristic of capitalism, namely private ownership over the means of production.”

“It is important here to note that ownership implies the right to utilize, trade or otherwise dispose of property as the owner sees fit, as long as his actions don’t infringe on the rights of others.”

“Any restrictions on the owner’s use, therefore, represents an erosion of private property rights over the means of production, and a step in the direction of centralized, or public, control over those means.

The First Taste Of Freedom, by Eric Peters, at ericpetersautos.com. Excerpt from the article:

“A bicycle was once upon-a-time a kid’s first taste of real freedom. This appetizer tended to instill a hankering for more. An expectation. An awakening.”

“Those who grew up before the era of helicopter parenting commenced in the ’90s will remember it because they lived it. Saturday morning came and as soon as you were finished with breakfast, you bolted outside, got on your bike – without putting on a helmet-  and took off.”

“Cycling is mostly an adult activity now. It’ rare to see kids out riding their bicycles – especially by themselves.”

Venezuelan Socialism Victims Send Message To American Socialists, by Cabot Phillipps, at campusreform.org. Video of people from Venezuela telling what the socialist paradise is really like.

Why Social Democracy Is Failing Europe, by Alastair Macleod, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article:

“The point missed by most analysts is that social democracy is failing because of the contradiction between personal freedom and state control.”

“As a form of mild socialism, it fails for the same reason as did communism. It all plays into the hands of the communists, for whom the failure of social democracy is an opportunity. They encourage the rank and file to blame capitalism. The collapse of capitalism is inevitable, as Marx wrote. And its collapse hastens full-blooded communism. Communism is a broken philosophy, as has been clearly demonstrated. But ruthless leaders still see it as the means of obtaining power over their fellow humans.

MEDIA NARRATIVES

How Media Narratives Become More Important Than Facts, Sharyl Attkisson, at theepochtimes.com. Excerpt from the article: “I believe I was among the first to really pay attention to the increasingly effective operations to shape and censor news – the movements to establish narratives rather than follow facts – and to see the growing influence of smear operations, political interests, and corporate interests on the news.”

“It’s not that I’m smarter than my peers …. but my particular brand of off-narrative reporting happened to draw the intense attention of the smear operators and propagandists, so I began to study it.”
