Politics / America’s Hamiltonian Empire of Lies . . .
« on: Today at 06:03:22 am »

Here's DiLorenzo's review of the new book How Alexander Hamilton Screwed Up America authored by Brion McClanahan.   

Republicans and modern Democrats are both Hamiltonians - or you can call both of 'em Lincolnites.

Politics / The Problems of Today's Black Americans
« on: Yesterday at 06:01:37 am »

The most damage done to black Americans is inflicted by those politicians, civil rights leaders and academics who assert that every problem confronting blacks is a result of a legacy of slavery and discrimination. That’s a vision that guarantees perpetuity for the problems.

Politics / Alt Right vs Cultural Marxism . . .
« on: September 19, 2017, 06:33:42 am »
Both the left and the right claim to be the torchbearers of the American experiment. But neither side cares about what the Constitution says, Paul said. Furthermore, both sides banded together to support the Bush doctrine, a willingness to countenance foreign interventionism that persists across the modern political spectrum. Leftists and conservatives take advantage of superficial differences to divide people – the left via identity politics and the right via their racist views.

“Both sides claim patriotic loyalty and ownership of the American tradition. Neither group cares about what the Constitution says both sides support America’s world Empire its militarism the military industrial complex and horribly dangerous Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war. Neither side condemns our aggression or foreign interventionism.

Politics / Price Gouging and Property Rights . . .
« on: September 16, 2017, 06:36:50 am »

Price-gouging laws grossly violate property rights.

None of this means that raising prices on essential goods in the midst of a natural disaster is always moral, just, and right. But that is a matter of conscience, religion, and ethics, not law.

Politics / We're All to Blame . . .
« on: September 14, 2017, 07:21:13 am »

Today’s Americans have little appreciation for how their values reflect a contempt for those of our Founding Fathers.

You ask, “Williams, what do you mean by such a statement?” In 1794, Congress appropriated $15,000 to help French refugees who had fled from insurrection in Saint-Domingue (now Haiti). James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution,” stood on the floor of the House to object, saying, “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article in the federal Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” Most federal spending today is on “objects of benevolence.” Madison also said, “Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.”

Politics / You'll be made to care . . .

In the liberal view, a society isn’t free until the last breadcrumbs of bigotry are swept away. A sincere leftist accepts no moderation.

Politics / Forty-Five Years of White Supremacy at the SPLC . . .
« on: September 11, 2017, 06:50:40 am »
SPLC = Southern Poverty Law Center

Where the highly-paid executive staff has been all white for all 45 years of its existence.  Apparently, no black leftists need apply for one of these plumb jobs at the Left’s preeminent hate group.

UPDATE:  Mark S. writes that the median family income in Montgomery, Alabama (where the SPLC is located) is about $44,500, so “these cats are living high on the hog.”  It was also recently reported in The Weekly Standard that, according to their 2015 IRS 990 form, the SPLC’s total salary bill was around $20 million, but they only spent a measly $60,000 (in a year) or so on “law.”  So these turkeys hate the South, do nothing about poverty, and rarely practice law.

Politics / Are There Any Conservative Government Schools? . . .
« on: August 29, 2017, 06:36:25 am »

If there is to be any state involvement in education, it must be limited to the state level. The federal government has been given no such authority by its Constitution. But this is only because every state has a provision in its constitution for the operation of K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, not because it is libertarian for the states to do so.

Politics / Was the ‘Civil War’ Fought Over Slavery? . . .
« on: August 26, 2017, 06:11:05 am »

The same is the case with the War of Northern Aggression. Lies masquerading as history have been institutionalized for 150 years. An institutionalized lie is highly resistant to truth.

Education has so deteriorated in the US that many people can no longer tell the difference between an explanation and an excuse or justification. In the US denunciation of an orchestrated hate object is a safer path for a writer than explanation. Truth is the casualty.

That truth is so rare everywhere in the Western World is why the West is doomed. The United States, for example, has an entire population that is completely ignorant of its own history.
-Paul Craig Roberts
