    Published on Jul 31, 2019 It was the Scottish author Charles Mackay who spotted that human beings go mad in crowds and come to their senses slowly and individually. One place to see this madness in action is in financial markets - especially when those markets have been juiced with cheap money. But manias’ never last, and in fact, daily, more and more people have stopped drinking the Kool Aid and have started joining the dots the reality of how the world really works… Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by the author Charlie Robinson to discuss how far the tentacles of vested interests really reach to maintain the status quo.

    Anti Federalist While I have a lot of respect for Lew Rockwell, and reference his site often, his personal view is not in-line with mine and other libertarian economists who have studied this. This is where Lew and I respectfully agree to disagree. You will also notice that as often as Ron Paul and Lew engage in conversation, Ron never, afaik, raises the issue of borders with him. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I posed this question in the Milton Friedman thread: . . Aside from the fact that restrictionism is WRONG from both an economic and freedom standpoint. If the gubermint, in its history of blatant and multiple lies and abuses, really did want to preserve freedom, liberty and fiscal responsibility (which it doesn't), and actually believe (however falsely) that closed/walled in borders are the solution (which it isn't), riddle me this: Why build a wall or any other barrier 30 miles, 100 miles, 200 miles in, when all that would be required is to have "Border Patrol" patrol the Actual Border which is the Rio Grande, far-and-away from rightful property owners, so that Private Property and Businesses would NOT be affected, Americans would NOT have to show papers please, and eliminate the "Constitution-Free" Zone?

    Ron Paul Liberty Report By Jacob G. Hornberger Washington Post columnist Robert Samuelson is worried. He thinks that maybe — just maybe — the U.S. government is not spending enough on defense. In a column entitled, “Here’s Why We Could Be Under-Spending on Defense,” Samuelson has come up with a complicated formula that has caused him to fear that China and Russia might actually be spending more money on their militaries than the United States. Bringing to mind the famous missile-gap controversy during the Cold War, Samuelson wrote, “Our reputed military superiority might be exaggerated or a statistical fiction.” I won’t delve into Samuelson’s complicated formula for arriving at his scary conclusion because, well, it is complicated, a point that even he concedes:

    By Patrick J. Buchanan August 21, 2019 Friday, President Donald Trump met in New Jersey with his national security advisers and envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who is negotiating with the Taliban to bring about peace, and a U.S. withdrawal from America’s longest war. U.S. troops have been fighting in Afghanistan since 2001, in a war that has cost 2,400 American lives. Following the meeting, Trump tweeted, “Many on the opposite sides of this 19 year war, and us, are looking to make a deal — if possible!”

    August 21, 2019 • Robert P. Murphy A recent article in the Guardian trumpeted the findings of a new study published in Science that found massive tree planting would be — by far — the cheapest and most effective approach to mitigating climate change. Ironically, the new thinking shows the pitfalls of political approaches to combating so-called “negative externalities.” The good news about tree planting disrupts the familiar narrative about carbon taxes that even professional economists have been feeding the public for years. The whole episode is an example of what Ronald Coase warned about, in his classic 1960 article showing the danger in the traditional approach of using taxes to fix alleged market failures. Ronald Coase vs. A. C. Pigou on “Externalities” Coase’s “The Problem of Social Cost” is one of the most frequently cited economics articles of all time, but it can be difficult for a newcomer to absorb its lessons. In this revolutionary piece, Coase challenged the standard approach to externalities that had been developed by economist A. C. Pigou.

    08/21/2019 • Chris Calton When Paul Hayes was arrested in Kentucky for writing a fraudulent check, he faced his third felony charge. At the time, Kentucky had a law in effect known as the Habitual Criminal Act, which imposed a life sentence for any third-time felony conviction. The prosecutor in the case, however, was at liberty to decide whether or not to charge Hayes under the Habitual Criminal Act. He offered Hayes a deal: either plead guilty and accept a five-year sentence, or go to trial and risk life in prison. Hayes rolled the dice on a jury trial and lost. But he appealed on the grounds that the wide disparity between the plea deal and the threatened sentence for a jury trial violated his rights to due process. The case went to the Supreme Court, where Hayes lost again. The disparity in charges between plea bargains and trials were irrelevant; as long as the facts fit the case, prosecutors can pursue whatever charges they like. Bordenkircher v. Hayes, as the case is known, reveals a great deal about our criminal justice system. Most importantly, it demonstrates how the legal system enables and encourages unhealthy prosecutorial practices. Incarceration rates have skyrocketed since the 1970s, and that trend has continued even as rates of violent and property crimes have fallen substantially.1 The drug war explains the rise in arrests for non-violent crime, of course, but even drug laws fail to explain prosecutorial trends.

    By Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr. August 20, 2019 Writes Atilla Sulker: “Happy 78th birthday to my dear friend and mentor, Dr. Walter Block! I first began emailing Dr. Block in June of 2018, and met him for the first time at the Mises Institute, in Auburn, Alabama, last year. Since then, Dr. Block has been an inspiration to me, both in the realm of scholarship, and the broad brushstroke of life. His desire to not only stretch, but completely redraw the boundaries instantly caught my attention. Dr. Block comes up with ideas that may seem “crazy” at the superficial level, but upon further examination, they are borderline genius. His methodology in creating ideas is something that I have adopted myself- come up with the craziest ideas, then logically distill them until you have something of substance. Dr. Block continues to produce prolific amounts of literature all the time, all very fascinating to read. Check out his massive archives here!” https://www.lewrockwell.com/political-theatre/happy-a-birthday-dr-walter-block/

    By David Stockman August 21, 2019 You would never know that the GOP won the last presidential election based on what emanates from the vocal chords of the Trumpian inner circle and the keyboard of its top banana. This stuff is just plain politicized economics, statist pretense and Keynesian hogwash. The Donald’s keyboard is bad enough. Still, after a lifetime as a leveraged real estate speculator who apparently skipped Econ 101, why would he know any better? But chief trade advisor, Peter Navarro, who supposedly has credentials, showed this weekend exactly what flavor of statist economics now reigns in the White House: “I can tell you with certainty… we’re going to have a strong economy through 2020 and beyond with a bull market,” he told ABC News in an interview on Sunday morning. “The Fed will be lowering rates. The ECB will be engaging in monetary stimulus. China will be engaging in fiscal stimulus.”

    I crossed the Canadian border with the flu and a few Canadians caught it from me. I am sure glad they didn’t consider me life below maggot and threaten to kill Americans on sight. Who knows what strain I had, I didn’t get vaccinated from the medical industrial complex, certainly not when Romney I mean Obamacare went into effect.

    Yes. For starters, Trump is a life-long shill for Eminent Domain, which Ron Paul clearly is not: Snip: It is not only Libertarians who value Private Property and Contracts Rights, but also always part of the Republican Platform... until Neocon entered the mix.

    I am a volunteerist, just like this guy, who explains everything in detail where Ron and Walter Block have not taken the time to do so. I am pretty confident that any change in policy that Ron and Walter would advocate would encompass what is contained in the video. It is an extremely tough pill for people filled with nothing but hate, but so is standing for each and every Bill of Right among those who do not care about them. I do pick my battles very wisely, which is why I stay out of trouble and still effective at the same time. Libertarian is a philosophy, Agorist is the practical approach to applying Libertarianism on a day to day basis.

    “Permits” do not ensure that people burn safely - personal responsibility does that. “Permits” do not pay the damage if smoke enters your next door neighbors house - you/insurance does that. If the “permit” is to only burn logs on Saturday but the bonfire for the kids birthday is on Sunday, why did my relative deserve to be fined by the government when no damage has occurred? Do you support gun permits, perhaps for open carry, since the fire-arm is exposed? Do you support the NRA, or the GOA? Great video, btw. When I told Ron about the burn permit thing, he got a pretty good chuckle out of it. Not that I was asking permission, because I wasn’t ;-)

    What I find very disappointing and completely repulsive is the fact that many of us agree on most issues, but one single issue where I disagree, and advocate Private Property Rights and alternative fiscally responsible solutions, has a handful of members spew complete and utter hatred and Negative Reps every post that I make. Is that what Ron Paul, or you for that matter would promote, in order to achieve peace through prosperity, and bringing people together?
