Expletive Included
In my youth, one of the biggest political events was the Watergate scandal that included the release of tapes of Oval Office conversations. A surprising and appalling aspect of President Nixon’s conversation was his use of foul language, so much so that it was edited from the public transcripts with the words “expletive deleted.” The brilliant comedian George Carlin had a classic skit during this period about the seven words you cannot say on television. Carlin was more than funny, but also extraordinarily astute, so it was years later and a bit of a shock to me the first time...

<div>Poland's Disgraceful Denial Over Holocaust Commemoration</div>
Poland's Disgraceful Denial Over Holocaust Commemoration Via The Strategic Culture Foundation, There was good reason why Polish President Andrzej Duda was prevented from addressing the Holocaust memorial event in Israel this week. The organizers anticipated he would use the event to make ugly and foolish accusations against Russia for having alleged complicity in the Nazi genocide. On being refused the opportunity to make such a speech, Duda then decided to cancel his attendance altogether. Such is the thin-skin of Polish sensitivity. Nearly 50 world leaders participated in the fifth World Holocaust Forum...

U.S. Presidential Partisan Divide Hits Record High
U.S. Presidential Partisan Divide Hits Record High With an 89 percent approval rating from Republicans and 7 percent approval rating from Democrats, President Trump has set a new high for partisan divide in 2019 with an 82-point gap between Republican and Democrat approval, according to Gallup.

Bush in 2004 rounding out the top five. There’s no question Trump’s...

<div>How China Overtook The US As The World's Major Trading Partner</div>
How China Overtook The US As The World's Major Trading Partner Authored by Iman Ghosh via VisualCapitalist.com, In 2018, trade accounted for 59% of global GDP, up nearly 1.5 times since 1980. Over this timeframe, international trade has transformed significantly - not just in terms of volume and composition, but also in terms of the countries that the rest of the world leans on for their most important trade relationships. Now, a critical shift is occurring in the landscape, and it may surprise you to learn that China has already usurped the U.S....

Wat betekent tolerant zijn nu eigenlijk?
Tolerantie is het kunnen omgaan met mensen met ander gedrag en andere meningen dan jij. Als iemand op de PVV stemt, of op FvD, dan zie je hem nog steeds als een mens. Als iemand van mening is dat man made global warming bewezen is, en je bent zelf niet overtuigd, dan accepteer je dat. […]

Davos Man – Misbegotten Progeny of Keynesian Central Bankers
There are a reported 119 billionaires attending the Davos confab this year – plus (allegedly) the Donald, who took a day off from Impeachment to address this august gathering of the world’s movers and shakers. There is also 1500 private jets crowding the surrounding airports – plus the notable train-traveling 17-year old expert on planetary climate science, Greta Thunberg. Also, among the 10 billionaires in attendance from communist China is Ren Zhenfei, founder of Huawei and father of its CFO, Meng Wanzhou. Even as dad courts the rich and famous on the slopes, daughter languishes in a Canadian jail waiting...

Blame Leviathan, Not Us
Finally! The Twitterverse is actually chiding a racist who happens to be black! Eric Adams is not only a black supremacist but a politician, too—and a particularly pointless one at that (pardon the redundancy): he’s president of the Borough of Brooklyn in New York City. Yes, that would be the same City already cursed with more “public servants” than rats per square mile. So what does the “borough president”—and there are five of ‘em, one each for Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island—find to do in that toxic stew? Not much, as even Pravda—er, the New York Daily...

Was WWII a Battle Between Capitalism and Socialism?
Column by L.K. Samuels. Exclusive to STR The little hidden secret about World War II is that it was a giant struggle between two opposing economic ideologies—capitalism and socialism. Unfortunately, the public is mostly unaware that the Nazi and Fascist ranks were chock-full of hardcore socialists and Marxist-lite ideologues. This was no accident. For decades the public had been indoctrinated by socialist academicians who falsely claimed that Fascist leaders were the captains of industry, controlling the people like puppet masters pulling the strings of Hitler and Mussolini. This notion is purely pseudo-historical nonsense with no basis in fact. So, how do we know?...

Questions to Consider Regarding Mass Shootings
Column by Dr. Douglas Young Exclusive to STR To prevent more mass shootings, many demand more gun control laws. But do these laws prevent such massacres or address their root causes? Here are 11 questions to ponder. First, why do almost all U.S. mass shootings occur in "gun-free zones”? Indeed, it’s hard to name any that have not. The 2015 Charleston mass-murderer apparently targeted a church instead of a school partly because the school had security – but South Carolina banned guns in church. Would any of us put a sign in our yard saying, “This is a gun-free home”? Second, can an evil...

Wederom een bankenrun op komst, edelmetalen in de lift?
In Duitsland begint het al langzaam door te dringen bij de bevolking dat er een systeem crisis aan zit aan te komen groter dan in 2007-2008. Er begint al een run op edelmetalen, en mensen vinden het niet erg om uren in de kou te staan voor een staafje goud zilver of platinum. Ik ben […]

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...
