Angina Patients Pay the Price For Cardiologists’ Preference For Problematic Artery-Propping Stents Over An Old Standby, Nitroglycerin Tablets
With clot-busting aspirin tablets having fallen from grace, heart researchers are now having second thoughts about stents that prop open narrowed or blocked coronary arteries. For inexplicable reasons, the FDA approves medical devices like stents before they are fully vetted. With the coronary artery stent business predicted to reach the $8 billion/year mark by 2025, Wall Street maybe ought not to count future profits too fast as a newly published study may have just foiled the marketing plans for these wire props that are placed within coronary arteries where blockages, narrowing or clots occur. A landmark study conducted by New...

Unspeakable Memories: The Day John Kennedy Died
There is a vast literature on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who died on a November 22nd Friday like this in 1963.  I have contributed my small share to such writing in an effort to tell the truth, honor him, and emphasize its profound importance in understanding the history of the last fifty-six years, but more importantly, what is happening in the U.S.A. today. In other words, to understand it in its most gut-wrenching reality: that the American national security state will obliterate any president that dares to buck its imperial war-making machine. It is a lesson not...

Mood Sours After Global Times Says "Tariffs Rollback" Needed For Trade Deal; China Will "Fight Back" If Escalation Seen US equity futures started sliding around 6 am est. when a Global Times tweet was published detailing how China wants to work towards a "phase-one" trade deal with the US, but outlined how Washington needed "some tariffs rollback" to complete the deal.

Furious China Shadows Two US Warships Sailing Through Disputed Waters, Warns Them To Leave
Furious China Shadows Two US Warships Sailing Through Disputed Waters, Warns Them To Leave China is again furious after the US sailed several warships through the heavily disputed waters in the South China Sea, military sources told Reuters.  The move by the US has escalated tensions between both countries, already tense as the latest round of trade talks have fallen apart, and the signing of the phase one trade deal has likely been delayed.  The USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS-10), an Independence-class littoral combat ship, on Wednesday sailed within 12 nautical miles...

Putin: Scientists Killed In "Mystery" Radiological Blast Were Developing "Unparalleled" Weapon Three months after a major and still somewhat mysterious rocket explosion in Russia's far north which caused radiation levels to spike at least sixteen times above normal, President Putin confirmed in statements Thursday that his military is developing a weapon that has "no equal in the world," according to Interfax news agency. “The very fact of possessing such unique technologies is today the most important reliable guarantee of peace on the planet,” Putin is reported to have said while meeting with the families of...

Rethinking National Security: CIA and FBI Are Corrupt, But What About Congress?
The developing story about how the US intelligence and national security agencies may have conspired to influence and possibly even reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election is compelling, even if one is disinclined to believe that such a plot would be possible to execute. Not surprisingly perhaps there have been considerable introspection among former and current officials who have worked in those and related government positions, many of whom would agree that there is urgent need for a considerable restructuring and reining in of the 17 government agencies that have some intelligence or law enforcement function. Most would...

Hub spreekt: Politici durven waarheid niet onder ogen te zien
Hub schreef het volgende nog steeds actuele artikel over de zinloze strafbaarheid van drugshandel in 2008:  Politici durven de waarheid niet onder ogen te zien. Dat zegt ten minste Hans van Duijn, de voorzitter van de Nederlandse Politiebond. En “hij denkt dat ook de hoofdcommissarissen er ook zo over denken”. Maar durven ze dat inderdaad niet? […]

Geleerden zeggen met stelligheid KLIMAAT WORDT KOUDER
Leeuwarder Courant 15 oktober 1970: (Van onze weerkundige medewerker) We zullen de komende tientallen jaren vermoedelijk niet kunnen bezuinigen op de brandstoffenrekening. Het wordt voortdurend kouder. De afkoeling, die sinds 1960 op aarde geconstateerd wordt – tussen ’40 en ’60 daalde de gemiddelde temperatuur met 017 gr. C. – vindt nl. verder voortgang. Deskundigen geloven […]

Why Are Most Socialists Anti-Semitic?
Column by L.K. Samuels. Exclusive to STR Ever since a horde of Democrat Socialists became the darlings of the news media in recent years, the specter of anti-Semitism has again reared its ugly head. This is no accident. Many of these Democratic Party politicians, especially Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, have embraced the ideals of socialism alongside those of anti-Semitism. And the reason for their virulent racism is that socialism and anti-Semitism are closely related worldviews. In fact, anti-Semitism and racial bigotry are in the very DNA of socialism, constructed around the hatred for Judaism and its merchant culture that promotes prosperity,...

Greta Thunberg vs. Boyan Slat
Column by Alex R. Knight III. Exclusive to STR Ever since August of 2018, the world has been hearing a lot about Greta Thunberg, an autistic teen from Sweden who began skipping government school classes (an admirable action when taken by itself) to stake out the Swedish Parliament building in Stockholm in order to demand “action” on the subject of “climate change.” As emotionally-charged phenomenons are often wont to do, this one went viral globally, prompting all kinds of school walk-outs around the world in order to “raise awareness” about and to protest so-called “climate-change.” Thunberg then went on to give a...

E-Verify Threatens Us All
By: Ron PaulIn addition to funding for a border wall and other border security measures, immigration hardliners are sure to push to include mandatory E-Verify in any immigration legislation considered by Congress. E-Verify is a (currently) voluntary program where businesses check job applicants’ Social Security numbers and other Information — potentially including “biometric” identifiers like fingerprints — against information stored in a federal database to determine if the job applicants are legally in the United States.Imagine how much time would be diverted from serving consumers and growing the economy if every US business had to comply with E-Verify. Also, collecting...

Remembering Burt Blumert
By: David GordonToday would have been the 89th birthday of Burt Blumert, one of the greatest personalities of the modern libertarian movement. Burt was the indispensable man behind the scenes and was a key figure in the Mises Institute, the Center for Libertarian Studies, and LewRockwell.com. He was one of Murray Rothbard’s closest friends; and when you met him, it was easy to see why Murray liked him. He was a genial and kind person and a source of wise counsel to all those fortunate to know him. Burt was the founder of Camino Coins and a principal figure in...

Mark Thornton: Is the Bust Here?
By: Mark Thornton, Jeff DeistWith stock markets in turmoil earlier this week, the Mises Institute's resident expert on booms and busts joins Jeff Deist to make sense of it. Will new Fed Chair Jerome Powell do everything possible to prop up markets, or will he be more hawkish than Janet Yellen? What kinds of indicators does Mark look for to predict trouble (hint: it's not the VIX). Why does the volume of margin loans matter, and why is the Russell 2000 Index a better predictor than the Dow or Nasdaq? Are cryptocurrencies now bound up with macro trends? And is Austrian...
