Robert Shiller Is Shilling for Socialism / Politics / Social Issues

By: MISES

Peter St. Onge writes: The Nobel Prize just gets cheaper and cheaper. Recent laureate Bob Shiller graces the New York Times with his latest rant that free-markets stink, bolstering his argument by making stuff up.

For starters, Shiller writes that America’s wealth “can be attributed” to regulation. Well, sure, it “can be attributed” to Zeus. Or sunspots. In the real world, America became the richest country long before the regulation age, and that position has been eroding ever since. Maddison (2007) estimates that by 1913 — before the New Deal regulatory explosion — the US was at $5,300 per person PPP (purchasing power parity), against $3,500 in Western Europe, $1,500 in Latin America, and $700 in the rest of Asia and Africa.

Tea Party is Drinking Too Much Decaf / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_Pento

On December 16th, 1773 the Sons of Liberty in Boston, in protest of the Tea Act, destroyed an entire shipment of tea sent by the East India Company, in a political protest referred to as the Boston Tea Party.

Following the Wall Street bail-outs in 2009, a political movement also protesting their lack of representation in government sought a reduction of the U.S. national debt and deficits by reducing government spending and lowering taxes. They were referred to as The Tea Party, named from the aforementioned Boston variety.

U.S. Debt Ceiling Debate: Don't Mention Warfare/Welfare State! / Politics / US Debt

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The US Treasury's recent announcement that the government will reach the debt ceiling on November 3 means Congress will soon be debating raising the government's borrowing limit again. Any delay in, or opposition to, raising the debt ceiling will inevitably be met with hand-wringing over Congress' alleged irresponsibility. But the real irresponsible act would be for Congress to raise the debt ceiling.

Peter Schiff on Death of a Patriot / Politics / Social Issues

By: Peter_Schiff

My father Irwin A. Schiff was born Feb. 23rd 1928, the 8th child and only son of Jewish immigrants, who had crossed the Atlantic twenty years earlier in search of freedom. As a result of their hope and courage, my father was fortunate to have been born into the freest nation in the history of the world. But when he passed away on Oct. 16th, 2015 at the age of 87, a political prisoner of that same nation, legally blind and shackled to a hospital bed in a guarded room in intensive care, the free nation he was born into had itself died years earlier.

Homo Sapiens Rationalensis Diverging From Revelation to the Apocalypse / Politics / Evolution

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This article continues from Part 1 - The First Prophet - Homo Sapiens Shrinking Brains Diverging Species, that covered the period from the emergence of Homo Sapien Religious some 75,000 years ago, their journey out of Africa and the role religious myths have played in bonding tribes of humans together, eventually settling down and farming some 10,000 years ago. However, the consequences of which has unfortunately been for the shrinkage of average human brain size by about 10% as 99% of humans along with many animals and plants were domesticated, slaves where a religious elite made all of the major decisions for them, hence reduction in the requirement for a large energy hungry brain.

The First Prophet - Homo Sapiens Shrinking Brains Diverging Species / Politics / Evolution

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Before I plunge into the main topic of this analysis, here's a quick update of where the stock market trend currently stands. We are now half way through October, which is THE month for stock market doom and gloom! The month when the stock market crash proponents are at their most vocal as its 1929, 1987 and 2008 all over again so a stock market crash is imminent. Though this time its worse than usual because even those who may have been 'mostly' bullish apparently have thrown in the towel several weeks ago to at least conclude that a stocks bear market had begun.

The way you treat your elderly today is how you will be treated tomorrow / Politics / Social Issues

By: Michael_T_Bucci

The fact that there will be no COLA (Cost of Living) increase in 2016 for 65 million recipients of Social Security will be acutely painful in Maine, which hosts the oldest population in the nation; and in Lincoln County, Maine, the second oldest county in Maine where public transportation is non-existent, community outreach is at best minimal and in which 25% of the population is age 65 and over. (1) Furthermore, 30% of Medicare beneficiaries — an estimated 17 million Americans — could see their Part B premium and deductible rise 52% because of provisions in the Social Security law.

Israel Anti-Palestinian Viciousness Rages / Politics / Palestine

By: Stephen_Lendman

Israel bears full responsibility for premeditated violence and brutality, unleashed without mercy against defenseless Palestinians - reminiscent of how Nazis persecuted Jews.

Decades of vicious Israeli persecution explains the root cause of ongoing turmoil. People take so much before reacting in self-defense. 

The trigger for things exploding now is multifold, a combination of:

Climate Change, Renewable Resources and Economics / Politics / Climate Change

By: Frank_Hollenbeck

Many socialists have conveniently repackaged themselves as environmentalists and latched onto climate change as a convenient means to preach the standard socialist agenda of planning and control.

These socialists will talk about glaciers retreating and the need to force farmers in Normandy, for example, to stop running their tractors on Tuesday. Anyone who questions the basic precepts of climate change are instantly viewed as ignoramuses who deny the overwhelming scientific evidence that climate change exists.

          I have three step kids. Two are generation X. The youngest is generation Y.

Just looking at them, you can tell a clear difference in their personalities and aspirations.

My older step kids are more individualistic. The younger one is more oriented to the group and collective interests.

Daily Israeli War Crimes in Palestine / Politics / Palestine

By: Stephen_Lendman

Israel is attacking defenseless Palestinians with lethal force and vicious propaganda - reflecting state terror fueled by longstanding racist hate, wanting maximum land for Jews only, and having Palestinians confined to isolated ghettoized bantustans, deprived of all rights and resources. 

Israeli and Western media support this hideous agenda, long ago abandoning any sense of objectively, siding now with Netanyahu and likeminded fascists, terrorizing Palestinians unaccountably.

An Introduction to Technofeudalism Ascending / Politics / Social Issues

By: BATR

The future of the planetary Reign of Terror has never been clearer. The pattern for global governance has been set into motion and operates under a model that has been used throughout much of history. The modern day version of command and control can be effectively described as Technofeudalism. The purpose of this introduction is to provide an outline of the arguments used by Steven Yates, Ph.D. The link to this significant treatise is provided below. In addition News With Views maintains an extensive archives of Dr. Yates’ work. Invest the time to read the entire essay for a full understanding of the linkage behind Technofeudalis and the course for top down dominance.

U.S. Politicians Exploit School Shooting While Ignoring Bombing Victims / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Following the recent Oregon school shooting, many politicians rushed to the microphones to call for new gun control laws. President Obama even called on gun control supporters to "politicize" the shooting, while some members of Congress worked to establish a special commission on gun violence.

The reaction to the shooting stands in stark contrast to the reaction to the US military's bombing of an Afghanistan hospital run by the international humanitarian (and Nobel Peace Prize winning) group Doctors Without Borders.

Netanyahu Unleashes Settler Terror Attacks, Targets Palestinian Hospitals and Patients / Politics / Palestine

Netanyahu-ordered state terror continues raging with no end in sight. Heavily armed soldiers, militarized police, border guards and other security forces are systematically terrorizing Palestinians - beating, wounding and murdering them in cold blood.

Police states operate this way, Israel one of the vilest, run by Arab-hating fascists, criminal thugs by any standard, unrestrained brutality their mode of operation - fully supported by Washington.

Putin’s “Endgame” in Syria / Politics / Russia

By: Mike_Whitney

Russia doesn’t want to fight a war with Turkey, so Russian generals devised a simple, but effective plan to discourage Turkey from taking any action that could lead to a clash between the two nations.

Last week, Russian warplanes intruded into Turkish airspace twice. Both incidents caused consternation in Ankara and send Turkish leaders into a furor. On both occasions, officials in Moscow politely apologized for the incursions claiming they were unintentional (“navigational errors”) and that they would try to avoid similar intrusions in the future.

Obama Abandons Scheme to Train Nonexistent Syrian Moderates / Politics / Syria

By: Stephen_Lendman

On Friday, Defense Department publication Stars and Stripes (S&P) headlined “Pentagon plans new approach to train Syrian rebels.” More on this below.

Fact: None exist. Anti-Assad forces are virtually all imported death squads from scores of other countries - US armed, funded, trained and directed, including ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Jabhat Al Nursa elements among others, used as proxy foot soldiers to terrorize Syrians, part of Washington’s scheme to replace Assad with a pro-Western puppet.

S&P lied claiming the Pentagon plans “a new approach to equip Syrian rebels…relying more on…Kurdish forces in” northern Syria.

The Real Reason for the Refugee Crisis You Won’t Hear About in the Media / Politics / Syria

By Nick Giambruno

There’s a meme going around that the refugee crisis in Europe (the largest since World War II) is part of a secret plot to subvert the West.

I completely understand why the locals in any country wouldn’t be happy about waves of foreigners pouring in. Especially if they’re poor, unskilled, and not likely to assimilate.

How Our Aversion To Change Leads Us Into Danger / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

The deeply embedded, genetically determined aversion -or resistance- to change that we are all born with is an important survival tactic. Since change equals potential danger, our aversion to it keeps us out of danger.

We are ‘programmed’ to prefer familiar surroundings, to first look at what we recognize, and to ignore what we do not until we feel comfortable enough about what we do know.

Why the Iran Nuclear Deal Will Never Achieve Peace in the Middle East / Politics / Middle East

By: Katherine_Smith

The latest development that the experts claim is undermining the Iran deal is Russia’s move to cement its alliance with Iran in Syria during last week’s meeting of 200 world leaders.

The Iran Nuclear Agreement is good for Middle East peace but neither the agreement nor the international unity forged in Vienna will be able to resolve the deep-rooted regional problems in the region.
