    Reminds me of when Pence changed Hebrews 4:12, which says to fix your eyes on Jesus, into an encouragement to fix our eyes on Old Glory. Trumper evangelicals are going to eat this up. They love it when their favorite politicians repurpose the vernacular of scripture so that Christ might decrease so they can increase.

    Your reference to Obama, who has been out of the WH and the news for 4 years and was more ambivalent than Trump on the gay agenda even when he did have power, was not a problem. It's still ok to blame everything on him. It's bringing up Trump, the guy who was still president 6 months ago and who is arguably the front runner to get nominated by the GOP again in 2024, that was your faux pas. It may be true that this website's mission would warrant giving Trump the same treatment here that Romney and McCain got (moreso, since they were never president). But be that as it may, there are those here, including some with a measure of sway over the administration of site policies, who won't have that.

    Maybe that was the best picture they had with two NFL players in the foreground in that particular posture? On a more freudian level, the resemblance of the Titans logo to flaming phalusses could also have subconsciously influenced the decision.

    Although it seems like this variant still mainly gets called the Delta variant, it is interesting to observe that it also gets called the India variant, and there doesn't appear to be any moratorium in the media of attaching a geographic descriptor to it that way, like there is for such terms as the China Virus or the Wuhan Virus.

    What's something they said that invokes that language? Their exact words. And they have to be words that people who don't adhere to CRT would never ever use. That's the thing about your paranoia about this. It's always based on the most tenuous extrapolations. I keep seeing you do this over and over. I think there's plenty of room to criticize what Garland is doing, along the lines that CaptUSA uses above, just based on what Garland actually says, without needing to leap to any conclusions like yours.

    But you're the one who said that "white supremacists" means all white people. Do you have a source to support the conclusion that Garland was referring to all white people (himself and Joe Biden included)?

    I haven't seen it discussed. But the question must come up of how they can keep capitalists out of their territory. They can't just let them come in and start entering wage labor contracts with one another there. Some anarcho-communists are pacifists. But some definitely aren't, and are ok with using violence in the cause of overthrowing capitalist institutions. I can't see them saying, "Yes, we can kill them. But no, we can't deport them."

    Come to think of it, maybe those defendants' attorneys could get some mileage out of capitalizing on that rhetoric. "Members of the jury, the prosecution has openly admitted to you that their case rests on a mere conspiracy theory!"

    Do I understand correctly that their reasoning for the lack of standing is dependent on the removal of the fines attached to the individual mandate, i.e. that the individual mandate doesn't harm anyone since there's no punishment for violating it? If so, then at the same time as ruling in favor of the mandate, it's also a rule in favor of keeping the mandate unenforceable. I'm not sure if this is really a win for the mandate if it comes with that string attached.

    Breitbart is a sea of contradiction. Monday: "These people came here illegally! They should have done it the right way, like my ancestors did, and come legally! I have no problem with immigration! I'm no xenophobe! But when it's done illegally, that's unacceptable." Tuesday: "Biden made it possible for these people to come here legally! That's unacceptable!" Yeah, the taxpayer dime part is definitely wrong. But something tells me that taking that out of the equation wouldn't change anything for the article's author and readership.

    This is what the mask mandate is for. It's so they can say, "Get the vaccine so that you won't have to wear a mask anymore." Granted, it's not a very effective stick, since people who don't want to wear a mask or get a vaccine will just go on doing neither. And those who are going to listen to that instruction will have already gotten the vaccine. But regardless of its effectiveness, it's one tool in their tool chest, and that's what its purpose is. I don't know if that's what the mask mandate was for originally. But that's what it had become by some time well before the vaccines were available in anticipation of them. Stopping the spread of the virus, or reducing the number of people who will get sick from it on the way to achieving herd immunity, are not things that masks can do.

    Cole labors to paint the actions of the rebelling soldiers about which he writes as foolish and without just cause. He doesn't mention whether or not those soldiers were drafted. I assume that as a rule they were. And if that is the case, then that is a very relevant datum that should be considered when passing judgment.

    I just found a trove of articles Jeffrey Tucker has written this year, including a bunch since the last one that appeared on the AIER website. So it looks like he's still pretty much just as active in writing. I guess I would have known about this if I used Twitter. https://www.realclearmarkets.com/authors/jeffrey_tucker/

    That's the thing. If the GOP ever does try being a party of smaller government, those folks will just flip right back to being Democrats again.

    This will not slow or reverse radicalization. It will drive more people towards radicalization and entrench those who are already there more deeply. This is obvious enough to me that it makes me wonder if that's the actual point.

    I not only don't know you're right, I think your idea is ludicrous on every level. Who could possibly benefit from paying anyone to post here? Unless it's spam with a link where maybe they get pennies every time someone follows the link. Are the Illuminati worried about Ron Paul running for president again in 2024, and they think they can shut him down by throwing cold water on the two dozen people who still frequent this site?

    How long is your list of people you think are getting paid by someone to post here? It seems like pretty much every time you disagree with someone about something that's the reason. Nobody could possibly have a different viewpoint than you unless they have some ulterior profit motive. And if they do post something you disagree with, that's going to ruin this website. Because the success of an internet forum depends on the total unanimity of its posters on the issues discussed. Heaven forfend you actually have to back up your viewpoint with reasons aimed at convincing those who don't already share it.

    I get that protectionists think this way. But that doesn't make it any better. Other countries having protectionist policies is never an excuse to support America having them too. It doesn't matter if there's a level playing field. Protectionism is always bad.

    The point wasn't to compare Trump to anyone else. The point was that protectionism is always bad and that the Jones Act should not just get temporarily lifted, but repealed altogether. Defending protectionism because it ostensibly puts America first is misguided. Protectionism doesn't help America. It hurts us. As for Trump, whereas a lot of people here (including you, if I'm reading you right) see his "America first" protectionism as a selling point, Ron Paul's view is in line with the view of Reason Magazine that you criticized, that this is one of Trump's most serious problems.

    I don't think this is accurate. There is constant arguing of right libertarians among themselves about immigration, with the majority of them being against state restriction of immigration, and a vocal minority of them being in favor of it. But as far as I have seen, this is an in-house debate among right libertarians. When it comes to the differences between right libertarians (what we here typically just call "libertarians") and left libertarians (what we here typically just call "communists" and would never consider libertarians) the distinctions are much more basic issues of whether or not private property and capitalism are ethical. But I think that within communist (i.e. left libertarian) thought, immigration policies are debated there as well. But to take repurpose the term "left libertarian" for those right libertarians (i.e. free market capitalist libertarians) who oppose state restrictions of immigration, is to muddy the waters of both debates.

There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.
