3.  Barbara Honegger presentation,

Barbar Honegger: Exposing the Deep State.  In this video, researcher Barbara Honegger will present the compelling evidence for why: 1) The Pentagon attack is the central attack of 9/11, without which there could not have been a ‘War’ on Terror; 2) The Real Story of 9/11 is pre-placed explosives at both the WTC and the Pentagon; 3) The Pentagon attack, like the WTC attacks, cannot have been executed by any foreign terrorists; 4) The Official Conspiracy Theory Lie of who attacked this country on 9/11 has been for 15 years, and still is, the ‘legal’ pretext for all U.S. invasions, occupations and deadly attacks in the M.E. and N. Africa. Concerning 911, Barbara’s authoritative work is “Behind the Smoke Curtain: What Happened at the Pentagon on 9/11, and What Didn’t, and Why It Matters.

Barbara Honegger worked as a researcher at the Hoover Institution before joining the Ronald Reagan administration as a researcher and policy analyst in 1980. She was the Director of the Attorney General’s Anti-Discrimination Law Review at the Department of Justice. After leaving Washington, she became the Senior Military Affairs Journalist for the Naval Postgraduate School.

While working for Reagan she discovered information that convinced her that George H. W. Bush and William Casey had conspired to make sure that Iran did not release the U.S. hostages until Jimmy Carter had been defeated in the 1980 presidential election.

In 1987 Honegger began leaking information to journalists about the Reagan administration. However, it was not until Reagan left office that Honegger published October Surprise (1989). In her book, Honegger claimed that in 1980 William Casey and other representatives of the Reagan presidential campaign made a deal at two sets of meetings in July and August at the Ritz Hotel in Madrid with Iranians to delay the release of Americans held hostage in Iran until after the November 1980 presidential elections. Reagan’s aides promised that they would get a better deal if they waited until Carter was defeated.

In the years since October Surprise was published other sources such as Ari Ben-Menashe, an Iranian-born Israeli businessman, security consultant and author, who was previously an employee of Israel’s Military Intelligence Directorate from 1977 to 1987 and an arms dealer; premier investigative journalist Robert Parry, who has authored numerous books and articleson the October Surprise; and Gary Sick, who served on the staff of the National Security Council under President Carter, have come forward to confirm Honegger’s story. Sick is the author of a book also entitled October Surprise. He was the principal White House aide for Persian Gulf affairs from 1976 to 1981, a period which included the Iranian revolution and the hostage crisis. After leaving government service, Sick served as Deputy Director for International Affairs at the Ford Foundation from 1982 to 1987, and is the executive director of the Gulf/2000 Project at Columbia University (1993–present), which has published five books and numbers many of the leading scholars on the Persian Gulf among its global membership. He is an adjunct professor of International Affairs and a senior research scholar at Columbia’s School of International & Public Affairs, where he has been voted one of the top professors. He is emeritus member of the board of directors of Human Rights Watch, and serves as founding chair of the Advisory Committee of Human Rights Watch/Middle East.

CHRISTIANITY
1.  “The Next Christianity,” The Atlantic, 2002.

“The original Reformation was far more than the rising up of irate lay people against corrupt and exploitative priests, and it was much more than a mere theological row. It was a far-reaching social movement that sought to return to the original sources of Christianity. It challenged the idea that divine authority should be mediated through institutions or hierarchies, and it denied the value of tradition. Instead it offered radical new notions of the supremacy of written texts (that is, the books of the Bible), interpreted by individual consciences. The Reformation made possible a religion that could be practiced privately, rather than mainly in a vast institutionalized community.

This move toward individualism, toward the privatization of religious belief, makes the spirit of the Reformation very attractive to educated people in the West.”

SEPARATION of CHURCH & STATE

CIA & SECRET GOVERNMENT
1. CIA & Secret Gov’t, Edward Curtin on David Talbot’s book on Allen Dulles, 2015.  Talbot’s book is titled The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government, 2015.2.

5. This confession made the alternative media circuit in the spring and summer of 2015. It is quite revelatory.

This is awful. Dr Udo Ulfkotte, the former German newspaper editor whose bestselling book exposed how the CIA controls German media, has been found dead. He was 56.

6.  The “Russia Shaped American Elections” is a push-back from the CIA after Trump appoints so many anti-CIA, military men.  Great assessment from Target Liberty.  Had no idea that the Electors of the individual states can recast their vote on December 19.  So the president isn’t confirmed until this date or even later on Inauguration Day of January 20. Quite an involved process.

COMMUNISM
1.  “The Man Who Prevented World War III,” EricMargolis, Dec. 2011.  “Instead, Gorbachev ended the Cold War and the threat of nuclear war. He terminated the Soviet credo of international revolution.”
2.  Karl Marx as Religious Eschatologist, Murray Rothbard.
3.  Marx’s Religion of Revolution, by Gary North, 1989.  You have to love comments like this:
One third of the world’s population today lives under tyrannies that call themselves Marxist. No other worldview commands this many people. Yet a hundred and fifty years ago, there was no philosophy called Marxism. Karl Marx was then and undergraduate university student who specialized in pubs, taverns, cafes, and desperate letters to his family asking for more money.
4.  Anti-Communist, Fred Schwartz.  from Wikipedia:  Doctor Frederick Charles Schwarz (15 January 1913 – 24 January 2009) was an Australian physician and political activist who founded the Christian Anti-Communism Crusade (CACC). He made a number of speaking tours in the USA in the 1950s, and in 1960 moved his base of operations to California.[1] He was the author of the international bestseller, You Can Trust The Communists (to be Communists), Prentice Hall, 1960. Dr Schwarz worked with his wife, Lillian Schwarz, from abroad and, in his later years, at their home in Camden, near Sydney, in the Australian state of New South Wales.

In 1940, Dr Schwarz, in the aftermath of a debate with an Australian Communist, became compelled to study Communist ideology, and was subsequently recognised as an expert on Marxist-Leninist philosophy.[2] He founded and was the chairman of the not-for-profit Christian Anti-Communism Crusade (CACC), based originally in Sydney, and subsequently in Long Beach, California, and remained in this position until the late 1990s. During his time with the CACC, Schwarz gave many lectures and seminars across America on the subject of Communism, placing an emphasis on the role of education in understanding Marxism-Leninism from the source documents of that movement, by Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Mao Zedong and others. Under Schwarz’s leadership, for some decades the CACC also paid for an orphanage in India, for underprivileged children.

His Southern California School of Anti-Communism filled the 16,000-capacity Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena from 28 August – 1 September 1961. According toMorrie Ryskind, writing at the time in The Los Angeles Times, “The evening sessions, featuring nationally known speakers, were televised, and those who should know tell me that some three million people listened in nightly. At any rate, I can honestly say that in my 25 years in Los Angeles I have never known a local event that so completely captured the enthusiasm of the city.”

5.  Dorothy Day was a communist who admired both Marx and Lenin, Lila Rajiva, September, 26, 2015
6.  Mass murdering of Che Guevara.  Though this article is informative and contains images appropriate to the obscenity of mass murder, I really prefer the reading of Humberto Fontava’s book, Exposing the Real Che Guevara and the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him, 2008.  I first heard of the title from G. Edward Griffin’s site, FreedomForceInternational, which changed its name to
7.  The Myth of Monolithic Communism, Murray Rothbard, 1979.
8.  Christians and the Communist Bogeyman, Laurence M. Vance, 2014.
9.  Communism for Conservatives, Gary North, 2010.
10.  Republicans and Communists, Lew Rockwell, 2009.

How could such a transformation of the world take place so rapidly? Why have Communist revolutions swept the face of the earth? And why did they occur only in regions where Marx had insisted that they could not in theory take place until the rest of the world had already turned Communist?

The greatest myth of Marxism is that the Communist revolution is inevitable. The second greatest myth is that it is proletarian. The third greatest myth is that it is the product of industrial poverty. Nothing in the lives of either Karl Marx or Frederick Engles, his partner, suggested that any of these myths was true. Marx and Engels, the bourgeois sons of bourgeois religious families, never did a day’s manual labor in their lives. Engel’s only connection to industrial capitalism was as the son of a factory’s owner. Marx’s only connection was his lifelong subsidies from Engles.

Why, the, has Marxism been so successful in capturing the minds of men? Because it is a religion, the most powerful rival of Christianity since the rise of Islam in the seventh century.

The nature of Marxism as a religion has long been recognized by its critics. But what has not been generally recognized is Marxism’s unique fusion of both ancient and modern heresies. It revives the most ancient of religious themes-social regeneration through systematic chaos-yet it defends this view in the name of modern science. It appeals to the basest motives of mankind-autonomy from God, institutionalized envy, and bloody revolution-yet it defends itself as being simultaneously the most moral and the most scientific of systems.

Gary North has assembled the evidence to prove that Marxism has been a success because it is the most perverse imitation of Christianity ever invented. It was invented by two men who had been baptized as Christians, had affirmed an evangelical faith in their teens, and had turned in fury against God in their early twenties. Few people know that Marx wrote a satanic play and wrote satanic poetry in his youth. But anyone who has read his early writings knows that his avowed enemies were not the capitalist but the Christians and the Jews. He hated God more than he hated capitalism.

CONFEDERACY
1.  from Charles Burris.  I like this video and song:

2.  What Was the Confederacy After All?  Kirkpatrick Sale, Novemeber 26, 2015.
3.  Here is the civil war song used by Ken Burns for his series.

It’s titled Ashokan Farewell, named after a reservoir in upstate New York. Wikipedia explains that the song was written in 1982 and that “The piece is a waltz in D major, composed by Jay Ungar in the style of a Scottish lament. . . .”
a. When Johnny Comes Marching Home, written by Patrick Gilmore. Show notes state that the song is the same as “Hohnny I Hardly Knew Ye.”  “Noted Bandmaster Patrick Gilmore wrote the lyrics for this tune when his band was attached to the 24th Massachusetts Infantry. The tune is the same as the Irish songJohnny, I Hardly Knew Ye” but there is some dispute as to which came first.”

CRITICISM
1.  On Dealing with Giants and Pygmies, Gary North, March 31, 2016.  An excerpt, a delicious tidbit:

In keeping with the military analogy, let me identify a serious player: Col. Billy Mitchell, U.S. Army Air Corps.

The popular Colonel Mitchell was facing a court-martial for his controversial remarks to the press on September 5 [1925], blasting two military disasters: a bungled flight during which three Navy seaplanes failed to make it from the West Coast to Hawaii; and the crash of the Navy airship USS Shenandoah while flying over the Midwest on an ill-advised public relations tour. “These incidents are the direct result of the incompetency, criminal negligence and almost treasonable administration of the national defense by the Navy and War Departments,” Mitchell stated. “The bodies of my former companions in the air moulder under the soil in America, and Asia, Europe and Africa, many, yes a great many, sent there directly by official stupidity.”

He was convicted by the Army. He was removed from command.

Seventeen years later, in World War II, the Army Air Core named the B-25 bomber “the Mitchell.” He broke ranks. He lost his case, but won the battle. He was an insider who was kicked out.

A woman on the faculty discovered a book in the college library: David Irving’s Hitler’s War. It is a good book on Hitler’s military planning. When first published, it received mixed responses by historians, but the major military historian of our generation, Sir John Keegan, praised it. So did another expert on World War II’s history, Hugh Trever-Roper. But then the author crossed a forbidden line. He denied that six million Jews had been executed by the Nazis. His reputation did not recover.”
14.  From Gary North on homeschooling:

I have no doubt that these stories are true. I also have no doubt that most parents don’t care. The parents could pull their kids out of school this afternoon. They could buy a few cheap Chromebook computers, and enroll their kids online for free in the Khan Academy. Here is what the Khan Academy does not have:

In the interview he makes reference to conservative educator, Fred M. Hechinger of the New York Times, to John Goodlad’s book in 1984, A Place Called Schools, to Charles Silberman’s 1971 book, Crisis in the Classroom.  Says there was never a time when students graduated from school as good writers, good readers . . . that never happened.  One of his books is How Children Learn: Classics in Child Development, John Holt, 1995.  His dates are 1923 to 1985.

25.  Standard forms of school violence.  The intention may not have been violent, but the results are disastrous.  Drudge posted a report a month or so back about how kids who are associates all it takes is for 5 to 10% of them to believe violence to be a justifiable ends to a means and the rest of the group’s penchant for violence rises.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
1.  James Comey, FBI Director, fired, May 2017.  But this action doesn’t seem particularly controversial.  Clinton fired FBI Director nominee, Jeff Sessions, the current U.S. Attorney General.  “In its 109-year history, only one F.B.I. director had been fired — until Tuesday, when President Trump fired James B. Comey. In July 1993, President Bill Clinton fired William S. Sessions, who had been nominated to the post by President Ronald Reagan in 1987. Mr. Clinton said his attorney general, Janet Reno, reviewed Mr. Sessions’s leadership and concluded “in no uncertain terms that he can no longer effectively lead the bureau.”  Okay, so this is not the same thing as firing a standing FBI Director.  So there’s that.

7.  Know who Valerie Solanas is.  She wrote the SCUM Manifesto and cited it in her defense for murdering Andy Warhol.  Funny how his murder went sort of untalked about.  His work and art was celebrated ad-infinitum post mortem but not a word about his murderer.  It’s not just that feminists want equality; they’re actually clinically crazy.

Here are just a few examples:

Almost any source will tell you that the definition of feminism is the effort to achieve equality between both genders.

Then it’s time to upgrade your sources. Let the feminists speak in their own words:

“I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig.” — Andrea Dworkin

“Feminism is the theory, lesbianism is the practice.” — Ti-Grace Atkinson

“All sex, even consensual sex between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman.” — Catherine MacKinnon

Interviewer for “What is Englightenment” magazine quoting Sally Miller Gearhart: “At least three further requirements supplement the strategies of environmentalists if we were to create and preserve a less violent world. 1) Every culture must begin to affirm the female future. 2) Species responsibility must be returned to women in every culture. 3) The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately ten percent of the human race.”

Mary Daley, responding to preceding quote: “I think it’s not a bad idea at all. If life is to survive on this planet, there must be a decontamination of the Earth. I think this will be accompanied by an evolutionary process that will result in a drastic reduction of the population of males. People are afraid to say that kind of stuff anymore.

Miller-Gearhart is on record for advocating male infanticide. The late Mary Daley concurred.

The late Valerie Solanas also agreed.

“Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex.

. . . a few more . . .

Betty Goldstein aka Friedan: severe borderline personality disorder; frequently abused and assaulted former husband Carl Friedan. Read his account “Life with Insanity”
Kate Millet: lesbian, schizophrenic; frequently trips to psych ward
Andrea Dworkin: lesbian, borderline personality disorder
Robin Morgan: lesbian, borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, sociopathic personality disorder
Gloria Steinem: pretends to be heterosexual but had a relationship with Flo Kennedy (and presumably other women too). Neurotic and narcissistic. Mother was schizophrenic.

Why list this and these names?  Because of what these monsters do their familyoriented men.  Because too many of their actions are all about castration literally or symbolically, like when a woman needs to hyphenate her name: it is a partial rejection.  Give this a listen:

8.  Gary North writes on abortion, one of the tenets of feminism:

The prophet must identify the fundamental evil of his generation. He must also identify long in advance the most likely specific evils that will consume the society and bring God’s wrath.” There is no doubt what this evil is in our day: abortion. Rushdoony, virtually alone among Protestant evangelicals, warned against it publicly in 1970; [Rushdoony on Abortion: Distant Early Warning, ICE, 1989.] No one paid any attention. This is normal.

Then the U.S. Supreme Court issued Roe V. Wade in 1973. What did the evangelical seminaries say in response? Nothing. What have all but one or two small ones said ever since? Nothing. The academically certified theological leaders of our generation cannot make a moral distinction between an abortion and a caesarian section. These are both just surgical procedures, as far as their academic theology informs them. As a result, spiritual leadership has shifted to those who have not attended seminary or who did attend but refused to take it seriously. They are rarely ecclesiastically ordained people.

When Beverly LaHaye came to Tyler, Texas, a few years ago to speak at a meeting protesting abortion, she admitted publicly that she and her husband Tim had paid no attention to the abortion question for almost a decade after Roe v. Wade. Then they saw the light and got involved. She now runs the largest Christian activist organization in the world: Concerned Women for America. This tells something very important. In the land of the spiritually blind, the first person to receive a spiritual eye transplant became queen.

GANGS
The End of Gangs,” Sam Quinones, Dec. 2014.  Sam Quinones is the author of two books of non-fiction growing out of 10 years he spent in Mexico: True Tales From Another Mexico and Antonio’s Gun and Delfino’s Dream: True Tales of Mexican Migration.  “The End of Gangs,” Sam Quinones, Dec. 2014.”Trouble in Lakewood,” Joan Didion, 1993, July 26.  The New Yorker.  This was one of the greatest articles I’d ever read.  It was about the Spur Posse gang in Lakewood, CA.  Didion had written other articles on California, one in particular that I liked was hers on San Bernardino, CA, titled “Some Dreamers of the Golden Dream.”  It was stunning in its flow and shocking in its brutal detail.

IDENTITY POLITICS
1.  Truth Behind Transgender, via Lila Rajiva, at MindBodyPolitic.com.  Rajiva writes:

Some radical feminist bloggers have spotted “transgenderism” accurately as an attempt to erase the notion of biological women in favor of male autoerotic sexual obsession—autogynephilia—a condition that is associated, apparently at alarming rates, with sexual offenses ranging from public exhibitionism to rape and murder. 

For Lila, she finds autogynephilia plausible, but not as a medical condition so much as a moral condition.

She believes that “there are no such fixed identities as homosexuals, autogynephiles, etc.”  But instead that these “are reifications of acts chosen by human beings, under more or less erotic compulsions.”  That makes sense to me too.  People self-identify based on what sexual acts or preferences they want.

“As a Christian,” she continues, she “consider[s] such acts disordered or immoral on the basis of their non-conformity to the injunction to regard our bodies as the temple of God, who appears to favor the missionary posture and reproductive sex over everything else.”

“Despite the language of “feminine essence” employed by political activists, it is not female brain sex” but male fetishism—autogynephilia—that is behind the large majority of transgender cases that develop in adulthood. 

“Taking testosterone or estrogen immediately after blocking puberty will make a teenage patient sterile.”  Ooh, that’s got to hurt.

Transgender therapy following puberty-blocking therapy results in sterile adults who cannot, and will never, reproduce.

IMMIGRATION
1.  Free Immigration, Hans Hermann-Hoppe, 2015.
2.  “… there are some libertarians who act as if the same arguments that apply to free trade and merchandise should apply to the movement of people across an international border. Of course, people are not merchandise. When people move across the border, their cultures move across the border with them. When you import people, you import cultures and you import patterns of behavior. One hundred years ago when our nation was debating immigration, at least they got data on which children of which immigrants did well in schools, which immigrants went on welfare and which didn’t, which immigrants had which diseases, and so forth. But today, in that regard, we are just flying blind. … They have put the rule of law in great jeopardy. …” — Thomas Sowell

MAKING MONEY, the RICH
1. 5 Myths About the Rich, Thomas Corely, Nov. 24, 2015.

These individuals made most of their wealth by investing in stocks in individual companies. Before they purchased any stock, they would pore over the financials of each potential investment looking for strengths and weaknesses. Then they would confer with a financial adviser to make sure their financial due diligence was correct.

They did their homework. And their homework did not end after they purchased a stock. They continued to monitor the financials of each company they invested in. If the financials got better, they invested more money. If the financials got worse, they sold their stock.

2.  Great little article on the dangers of a cashless society.  Most can figure out the fact that not only surveillance of your spending and buying habits would be available to government, but if the gov’t ever wanted to seize or lock your accounts they would find some rationale to do that as well.  It’s a short, worthwhile read.

We came in and invaded this country and murdered a lot of innocent people. So tell me how we are heroes.” Pierce won’t be saying anything else since he blew his brains out in 2007 after coming home from Iraq.

This article about Noah Pierce is old, from 2008, but is still worth reading. Nothing has changed: Soldiers who fight in unjust and immoral wars are not heroes—even American soldiers.

NAZIS
I am grateful to Charles Burris for posting this over at LewRockwell.com.  I’d never followed up on the Nazi treatment of its ill.  This damns those Nazi elite to eternity as far as I am concerned.  And what’s funny is that Hollywood traipses out an actor with Down Syndrome to showcase how non-discriminatory they are, how inclusive and how “We love everybody” and “equal” they are.  They are not.  The U.S. is the place where sterilization treatments of folks not deemed worthy of life began.  See Edwin Black’s book, War on the Weak: Eugenics and America’s Campaign to Create a Master Race, 2012.

In something straight out of the prophetic Lord of the World, Sun columnist Katie Hopkins calls for ‘euthanasia vans’ as Britain has ‘far too many old people.’ Lord of the World is a 1907 apocalyptic novel set in Britain by Robert Hugh Benson. It is sometimes deemed one of the first modern dystopias. Recently Pope Francis has several times recommended reading this book in order to understand the present. Essentially the novel imagines a socialist andhumanist world where religion has been either suppressed or ignored. In the absence of religious belief, the State fosters euthanasia such as described in the above documentary onNational Socialist Germany. (The Catholic Church was a major opponent of euthanasiaunder the Nazis.) In the novel however, the Catholic Church has been suppressed by the rest of the world, which has turned to the Religion of Humanity modelled on that of Auguste Comte.

Many thanks to Travis Holte for advising me about the Katie Hopkin’s euthanasia column.

6. This is video is disturbing for several reasons. One, the cops pulled this kid over because he was riding his bike with earphones on. The kid could not hear them. The cops suspected him of belonging to a gang. Two, once they straddle him, one of the cops shoots the other cop in the leg. Angry or whatnot, the cops decide to shoot this young man in the back . . . four times.  The video’s description reads here:

A disturbing video emerged Friday showing two Los Angeles sheriff’s deputies killing a man after they had chased him for riding a bicycle while wearing headphones.

The incident took place more than a year ago with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department initially telling the media that they shot and killed 23-year-old Noel Aguilar, a “known gang member,” after he pulled out a gun and shot a deputy.

But now a video shows the two deputies struggling to arrest Aguilar when one deputy pulls out his gun and shoots the second deputy before placing his gun back into its holster, then putting the blame on Aguilar.

I wouldn’t say that “when on deputy pulls out his gun.”  It looks like the deputy’s gun fell out of his holster as Aguilar rose from the cement sidewalk to his knees in resistance, knocking the officer off balance.  You can hear in the video the gun hitting the sidewalk.  You can also see the officer reaching for his gun, and it is notated as well.  What is clear, too, is the fact that Aguilar is prone on his stomach with the officers straddling his back.  You can see and hear the one officer handcuff his hands behind his back.  They shoot him in the back.  Whether the gun fell out of the holster or the officer pulled it out is moot.  Why did the officer need to shoot Aguilar? Because he was resisting arrest.  And when he went to shoot Aguilar, he missed, hitting his partner in the leg instead.  Then as the logic of policemen goes, the second officer made the decision to fire four shots in Aguilar’s back.  And killed him.  According to this report, Deputy Jose Ruiz fired his gun and the round hit his partner, Deputy Murad, who immediately begins blaming Aguilar for shooting him.  Early in the video you can hear Murad shouting “He’s gotta gun!  He’s gotta gun!”  Too many Latinos love to blame and hate on whites for their abuse and treatment of Latinos.  I say look at your own.  Here is an incident of two Mexican surnames murdering a kid.  What’s that about?

Some interesting comments here.  You can find a picture of Noel Aguilar, 23, who was murdered on May 26, 2014, here.  Shaun King concludes that” Officers Ruiz and Murad, who are actually back on duty, should not only be fired, but be brought up on charges.”  This is just as shocking as the blatant murder.  Here is another version that comes with the dialogue.  These cops simply murdered Noel Aguilar.

PROGRESSIVISM
1.  Progressivism: Ideology Destroying America, Patrick Krey, 2014.
2.  Here is a terrific letter from Richard Ebling on Progressives, based on an interview he and Jacob G. Hornberger conducted on December 15, 2015.

Modern American liberals often choose to call themselves “Progressives” and their political agenda, “Progressivism.” But what does this mean and what is its origin? It all began, as with many things on “the left,” with Karl Marx who claimed to have discovered the “laws” of historical development that moved society from less to more advanced and perfected human existence, and then with the German economists and political philosophers of the second half of the nineteenth century (the “German Historical School”) who insisted that society is constantly changing and each stage of historical development requires different social rules, laws and economic relationships enforced by the State.

Several generations of young American scholars studied in Germany with these advocates of political “opportunism” and “expediency” (as they hailed their views of government policy) and returned to the U.S. and founded the “Progressive Movement” in the early years of the twentieth century.

Their American guru was Woodrow Wilson who insisted that the U.S. Constitution needed to be a “living document” reflecting “modern times,” which for him and those who thought like him meant the concentration of political power in Federal hands to transform society into an effective and efficient interventionist-welfare state.

This is why, today, people like Barack Obama insist that their desired policies are on the “right side of history.” Since their implicit (Marxian-like) assumption is that history moves society away from the greed and selfishness of self-interested profit to a higher plain of communal sharing and sacrifice for the “common good” defined and implemented by an political elite arrogantly presuming to know how society should be organized for a “better” and more “socially just” world to come.

The video interview is below:

4.  Progressivism Is a Blob of Alleged Rights That Results in Nothing But Structural Disorder, Yonathan Amselem, December 31, 2015.  Below is an excerpt:

A Plea for More Precise Language
Pitching a wish list of other people’s property naturally requires a total deformation of the English language. The left has recently adopted many vague, imprecise, but passionate words into their lexicon.

“Equality,” “social justice,” “appropriation,” “racism,” “climate justice,” “micro-aggressions,” and many other terms referencing broad, nebulous concepts are now battle cries for stuff

In practice, being “for” something like social justice means to be for just about anything and against just about anything! Do any two people have the same idea about what social justice means?

Groups as diverse as American universities, the Green Party, Italian Fascists, and even the American Nazi party share a commitment to “social justice.” This is not a minor point — expressing a vague set of guiding principles means that almost all government objectives will be legitimate, no matter the destructive means used to achieve those professed ends. Much like Progressive “rights,” terms like “social justice” can be used to justifythe overwhelming majority of government action.

REVISIONISM
1.  Happy Columbus Day, Ryan McMaken, 2007.  More on Columbus from McMaken.  From McMaken’s article:

Columbus himself had not been an object of any particular veneration prior to the 19th century. He was respected, but not an object of adulation for school children. There’s a large plaza featuring him in Madrid for obvious reasons, and the Genoese sometimes revere him as one of them.

But it seems that 19th-century American nationalists invented the myth of the semi-divine Columbus who needs a government-invented holiday for his proper veneration. He provided an important addition to the mythology of national origin — something very precious to nationalists everywhere — but Columbus was especially useful because he made America’s roots seem more ancient, and also more adventurous and heroic.

Columbus was helpful as an illustration of the presumed virtues of American imperialism in the late 19th century. For the imperialists, Columbus took civilization to the New World much in the same way the Americans were taking civilization to the Filipinos or the Mexicans or the Hawaiians.

2.  On How to Teach Revisionist History, Gary North, 2015.  I like how he links to articles by Mae Brussell, “Then you go to Mae Brussell, whose remarkable articles are online. For decades, only the hard core knew about her — mainly on the Left.”  Here is an excerpt from North’s article:

Let me give you an example. I think it is beyond question that the Cherokee nation had roots in Western Europe. There is a 2012 book on this by Donald Yates: Old World Roots of the Cherokee: How DNA, Ancient Alphabets and Religion Explain the Origins of America’s Largest Indian Nation. Needless to say, it was not published by a university press. Also needless to say, the author is not employed by a university. The book is remarkable in its documentation. It has a large bibliography and a lot of footnotes. It draws upon materials that have been completely unknown to the academic community.

TECHNOLOGY

The Source of Abudnance
It is hard for us to imagine how little their little can be. A traveler in a primitive region came upon a family bowed down with grief because they had lost–not a child or mother–just a lowly needle! In colonial America they are said to have burned houses to recover the nails. Nails were even used as money until Jacob Perkins invented a machine in 1795 that would make 60,000 of them a week. (Imagine the “inflation”!) After that, they sold nails by the keg, not by the dozen. Ordinary pins once cost twenty cents each (when twenty cents was a fair start on a day’s wage), and were given as gilts–until a man broke the pin market with a machine that would ‘tum out two million a week. Wearing fitted shoes was once the exclusive privilege of monarchs and the very wealthy. Ordinary folks wore clodhoppers which fit very sloppily; fitting a pair of tailor-made shoes was like having a portrait painted. A bushel of wheat cost an English laborer the equivalent of five days’ pay in 1770. It was not until John Deere’s plow broke the prairies, and McCormick’s reaper sped up the harvest–plus a lot of other inventions in the last century–that the English laborer had anything like an adequate diet. Famines used to be as common in Western Europe as they still are in under developed areas today.

Putin smashes BBC’s John Simpson. Posted on Sunday, January 3, 2016.

from Robert Wenzel at TargetLiberty:

John Simpson from the BBC asked Russian President Vladimir Puting the below question:

Western countries almost universally now believe that there’s a new Cold War and that you, frankly, have decided to create that. We see, almost daily, Russian aircraft taking sometimes quite dangerous manoeuvres towards western airspace. That must be done on your orders; you’re the Commander-in-Chief. It must have been your orders that sent Russian troops into the territory of a sovereign country – Crimea first, and then whatever it is that’s going on in Eastern Ukraine. Now you’ve got a big problem with the currency of Russia, and you’re going to need help and support and understanding from outside countries, particularly from the West. So can I say to you, can I ask you now, would you care to take this opportunity to say to people from the West that you have no desire to carry on with the new Cold War, and that you will do whatever you can to sort out the problems in Ukraine? Thank you!

Below is Putin’s reply:

UNIONS
1.  Please Stop Helping Us, Jason L. Riley, 2014.  Here is an article that reviews the book and how awful the unions were toward blacks.

Author Jason Riley, in his recent book “Please Stop Helping Us,” says “when (politicians) moved to implement federal minimum-wage laws and Davis-Bacon statues … it is crystal clear that Congress passed these statues to protect white union workers from competition from nonunion blacks … We still have the transcripts.”

The solution is obvious. Just use unions who have a membership that reflect the surrounding area’s racial composition. In 1933 there were about 2.25 million union members. Two percent were black. In 1930, however, blacks were formally barred from union membership in 26 national unions. There goes that solution.

Responding to President Franklin Roosevelt’s National Industrial Recovery act, the NAACP in 1934 noted that, “Union labor strategy seems to be to form a union, strike to obtain the right to bargain … and close the union to black workers.” This act was later ruled unconstitutional, but to the blacks of the day, the National Recovery Administration (NRA) was commonly known as the Negro Removal Act. It was very effective.

WELFARE
1.  “Our Giant Welfare State,” Robert J. Samuelson, Washington Post, 11/25/2014.  Excerpt follows . . .The OECD report brims with insights about welfare systems. Did you know, for example, that China — heir to a communist social system — has a puny welfare state compared with most wealthy nations? In 2009, its social spending equaled 7 percent of GDP.” Welfare Before the Welfare State,” Joshua Fulton, Mises.org, June 21, 2011.  Excerpt follows . . .Lodges also had incentives to keep down costs. For instance, the Ladies Friends of Faith Benevolent Association, a black-female society, would pay members taken ill $2 a week if they saw the lodge doctor, and $3 if they didn’t. A visiting committee also checked on the claimant to guard against false claims. Members who failed to visit the claimant were fined $1.  9  Mutual-aid societies also enforced moral codes. In 1892, the Connecticut Bureau of Labor Statistics found that societies followed the “invariable rule” of denying benefits “for any sickness or other disability originating from intemperance, vicious or immoral conduct.” Many societies refused to pay benefits for any injury sustained in the “participation in a riot.” 10  Some lodges even denied membership to people who manufactured explosives or played professional football.  11 Many mutual-aid societies branched out and founded their own hospitals and sanitariums. The Securities Benefit Association, or SBA, charged $21 for an 11-day stay at their hospital in Kansas, while the average at 100 private hospitals was $72.  12  Again, quality was not necessarily sacrificed for price. At the SBA’s sanitarium, the mortality rate was 4.5 percent, while the historical average for sanitariums was 25 percent. This is especially impressive considering that 30 to 50 percent of all cases admitted to the SBA’s sanitarium were “advanced.”  13Origins of the Welfare State,” Murray Rothbard, 1996.”The Welfare State,” Charles Burris, May 18, 2013.  This is a near duplicate of Burris’ book list, but I do believe that you should find a few extras.  I love that he is as prolific a reader on this topic that he is.

WESTERN VALUES
1. Are Western Values Losing Their Sway, Steven Erlanger, September 12, 2015, NYT.

No. “Western values” died a long time ago, replaced by postmodernism. I feel like an outsider in my own country. Are Western values, essentially Judeo-Christian ones, truly universal? Is that what you call sponsoring mercenary terrorists to massacre Christian villages in Syria? I wonder what his rabbi thinks about him conflating Judaism and Christianity. Better get him busy reading Mishneh Torah.

Dr. North replied, “I read the volumes on economics of the Mishneh Torah. It’s not Christian. But I liked a lot of what Samson Hirsch wrote. He was surely Orthodox.”
