This is one of those “through the looking glass”/red pill pieces which come from Mises.org periodically.
The credibility train has long, long left this White House. Michelle Obama goes to Hollywood, hustles for campaign money, and then complains about how much money is in politics. It’s just bizarre. Politicians are a weird breed but the disconnect seems to be getting bigger and bigger these days.
(From The Washington Times)
“There is something you can do right now today to make a difference, and that is to write a big, fat check. I kid you not,” she said. “I’m going to be honest with you. That’s what we need you to do right now. We need you to write the biggest, fattest check that you can possibly write.”
“I’m going to be honest with you?” As opposed to what? A standard dishonesty?
It is time to do a comprehensive audit of the Pentagon. It’s supposed to have been audited long ago, and on an ongoing basis but brass has said that such an audit just can’t be done. The military is just too big.

Washington and the Fed think they can plan out society. That they can manipulate the levers of the economy to elicit positive outcomes (mostly for them). That leaving the world to the “whims of the marketplace” is madness. That dispassionate managers (no one is dispassionate, especially political managers) can and will make the world anew. There is no God. Government is God and it will giveth and taketh as it pleases.
Strange new battle lines are being drawn in Washington. It’s probably the most interesting bit of realignment in my lifetime. Things are changing, especially in the GOP, and it appears irreversibly so.

Another for the “surprise, surprise” file.
Even though the governor of New York created the commission with much fanfare in 2013 to “clean up Albany” it was dead by 2014. The commission was looking into things a little too closely.
Nine. I wonder what Mr. Moore’s carbon footprint is?
First the kerfuffle at UNLV over Ms. Clinton’s $225k 1 hour speech, and now this from the student body at UCLA. Looks like at least the students are waking up to the scam.
