The Washington Post’s Latest (and Lamest) Attack on the Mises Institute (And liberty itself)

For the record I am deeply proud of The Mises Institute and all it stands for. It is the heart of libertarianism, standing up for what is right against forces that are much larger than it, with much larger budgets, and much more power.

This is me at the Mises Institute standing next to a bust of the brilliant (though not infallible) Murray Rothbard.

The Mises Institute is one of the leading lights of liberty and a standard bearer for the only successful libertarian revolution in history (to date),

Hillary Clinton Thinks Moral Of ‘1984’ Is That We Should Trust The Government And Media (And Trump’s the “authoritarian”?)

“Are you reading Against Crony Capitalism again? Report to the commissar!”

She has checked out. Let’s not forget that she collapsed right before the election and had to be lifted into her traveling poli-wagon after passing out.

But don’t you wish you could blame this idiocy on physical decline? I do. Sadly she probably has long thought this. Don’t question authority and “experts.” They know best.

We as a country are very fortunate that this woman is not running the show.

End Warrantless Deep State Spying: Don’t Renew 702 (VIDEO)

16 years ago today the world went nuts. And it hasn’t recovered. Things have basically been crazy ever since.

Perhaps the saddest thing to come out of the September 11th attacks is the degree to which this country abandoned long held principles in a climate of fear. It was on 9/11 that the surveillance state was really birthed on a domestic level. It was in the wake of the attacks that many Americans just gave up their birthright to dignity,

Watch UC Berkeley Cops Literally Take Money Out of the Wallet of an Unpermited Hotdog Vender (VIDEO)

Yeah, yeah, health inspections blah blah blah. Do you think you are any more likely to get a food borne illness from this guy than from a permitted vendor? I seriously doubt it. It’s a hot dog and street meat has its dangers permitted or not. (Most of the dangers actually come from what the hot dog is made out of. Not how it was handled.)

Bitcoin up sevenfold since Warren Buffett warned digital currency was a ‘mirage’

I am not one of the “Buffett has lost his edge” people. But people can make mistakes and even if Bitcoin crashed tomorrow this was a huge misread from the man in Omaha. Of course Bitcoin also directly challenges the banking system as we know it and banking “as we know it” has served Mr. Buffett very well. It’d be kind of a bummer (for Buffett, not us) if Bitcoin started really eating into Wells Fargo.

Ban Fish Oil Imports?

That is what a Pharma firm lawsuit seeks to do. It also opens up a novel front in the war on natural products by asking the US International Trade Commission to help create a new monopoly by knocking out imported EPA, the most anti-inflammatory kind of fish oil. Urgent Action Alert!

Forget Wall Street – Silicon Valley is the new political power in Washington

You would think that tech people would know to fight statism, but no. Of course crony capitalism is tantalizing and as such tech has followed the siren song just like other industries. It didn’t – at least not whole hog – for a while.

But those days are long gone. Then add the scourge of political correctness that infects the Bay Area and one can see the problem. This is where the thought police – or at least their enablers –
