Britain Gearing Up For Civil War

“National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) boss Martin Hewitt appeared to imply the nation is on the verge of violent disorder with his warning that public figures should “think carefully” before speaking at the same time as other headline-grabbing statements were issues by police, including an announcement that they have prepared a 10,000-man strong rapid reaction force to deal with riots.”

“The officers are needed, The Guardian reports, because of the supposed possibility of food riots and looting after Brexit — despite several key stakeholders having confirmed repeatedly that they are ready for Brexit, whatever happens.”

Gloria Steinem told Planned Parenthood advocates “there is no democracy” without abortion.

Gloria Steinem gets away with equating the slaughter of babies to “democracy”. I think what she meant to say was “freedom” rather than “democracy” but I will not attempt to remotely think I know what this woman is thinking. The troubling aspect with Steinem going all the way back to her CIA/Redstocking days is the manner in which her utterances are adopted as gospel by some women in this country.

More New York Times Fueled NRA Lies

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2015/04/12/rolling-stone-bad-press-nra-column/25673879/

The Times had editorialized that the NRA was a bunch of hypocrites because although attendees with gun permits were allowed to carry guns on the convention floor, those guns were actually neutered by having the firing pins removed: “Seventy-thousand people are expected to attend the National Rifle Association’s convention opening (last Friday) in Tennessee, and not one of them will be allowed to come armed with guns that can actually shoot. After all the NRA propaganda about how ‘good guys with guns’ are needed to be on guard across American life, from elementary schools to workplaces, the weekend’s gathering of disarmed conventioneers seems the ultimate in hypocrisy.”

A damning assertion of hypocrisy — except that it wasn’t even close to true. The only guns with firing pins removed were the display guns on the convention floor. In fact, several gun bloggers tweeted a photo of themselves carrying fully functional firearms from the press room, forcing The Times into an embarrassing — though still incomplete — correction. It was especially embarrassing because a simple check of the NRA website or The Tennessean would have revealed the truth. But The Times‘ editors saw a chance to score a cheap shot and got carried away in their excitement. (MSNBC got burned, too.)

Asbury Park’s Rebirth Shows How Entrepreneurs Make Our World a Better Place

David Parker revives neighborhoods in the Boston area. Since the 1970s, he has gone into the most impoverished parts of the city, only to buy the apartments and buildings that very few wanted. Parker’s intrepid nature proved prescient. The locales once shunned by Boston’s many well-heeled residents are now very desirable to them.

Parker’s success is an effect of him having fixed what was broken. Yet he’s very modest about it. Lightly paraphrasing this most courageous of investors, “I could only afford neighborhoods that I didn’t feel safe in.”

After a Decade of Cheap Money, the Federal Reserve Still Has No Exit Strategy Everything the Federal Reserve did to cause the housing crash was done

I started a house painting business the month house prices peaked. I had planned on using the profits from painting to fund my film projects, but that was assuming home values weren’t going to fall 30 percent. My timing couldn’t have been worse.

Everything the Federal Reserve did to cause the housing crash was done on a much larger scale, not just in 2008, but in every year since. But while I was experiencing the unwinding of the housing bubble, I stumbled across a free audiobook of Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt. I was literally painting a house when I heard the words of a man in the 1940s describing our boom and bust perfectly. I immediately knew what documentary I needed to make. To make sure we didn’t fall for the next bubble, I needed to interview people, like Ron Paul, who predicted the crash and ask them why it happened. I needed to find out what would come next.

America Finally Admits Recycling Doesn’t Work (FEE)

“This, Mises would say, is planned chaos, the inevitable result of central planners making decisions instead of consumers through free markets.”

A couple of years ago, after sending my five-year-old daughter off to school, she came home reciting the same cheerful environmental mantra I was taught in elementary school.

“Reduce, reuse, recycle,” she beamed, proud to show off a bit of rote learning.

Recycling makes people feel good, but the idea that it improves the condition of humans or the planet is highly dubious.

The moral virtue of recycling is rarely questioned in the United States. It has been ingrained into the American psyche over several decades. On a recent trip to the Caribbean, my friend’s wife exhibited nervous guilt while collecting empty soda, water, and beer bottles destined for the trash since our resort offered no recycling bins.

A Government Guide to Keeping Insulin Unaffordable: 3 Easy Steps to Hogtie a Market

Desperate patients pay up because they have nowhere else to go—and their distress is deliberate and designed.

Monday, March 25, 2019

From the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE)

f you’ve heard anything about insulin lately, it’s probably been palpable outrage over soaring prescription prices or dubious optimism about Eli Lilly’s recent release of its new version that, at half the price, will cost an arm or a leg but not both.

The inventors of insulin sold its patent for $1. Eli Lilly now charges $360 a month for the drug and made $3.2 billion in profits last year.

Meanwhile, Americans must sell all their possessions to get the insulin they need.

We’re going to take on the greed of the drug industry. https://t.co/vtWsN4cXeR— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) March 15, 2019

Amid this cesspool of indignant commentary, you’re likely to hear one of the biggest misconceptions around: that markets, competition, or capitalism have failed to respond to the patient’s need in creating more affordable insulin. What you won’t hear is how pharma giants have enlisted the FDA, the DEA, the FBI, customs and border security, and a dozen other taxpayer-funded regulatory and enforcement agencies to protect their profit margins.

Kirsten Gillibrand will call Trump a ‘coward’ in New York speech while hailing as ‘brave’ high school students organizing to end gun violence.

I would agree with Mrs. Gillibrand’s characterization of ‘brave’ if the young men she’s referring to were lobbying for the training and weapons necessary to defend their classmates* from violent attack. Instead her ‘brave’ are a bunch of whiny entitled pajama boys hiding behind their mommy’s skirt.

*Yes. I am continuing to suggest that responsible young men and women in high school be given the training, weapons and supervision necessary to help defend their classmates from violent attack. This is no different than fielding a varsity level football team.

Chicago Heading Towards Full Venezuelan. Time To Move Your Business. Or Be Prepared To Defend Your Business.

The reason Chicago was the “city that worked” for so many years was an effective combination of money and competency. Money came from a robust industrial base and most politicians, while corrupt to their core, knew how to make the trains run on time.

Today, the competent politicians are long gone leaving just the corrupt, and the industrial base has been replaced by a services core that favors the elite and disenfranchises the common man.

Que the socialists.

If you own or operate a smaller enterprise in Chicago, “they’re coming to git what you got”.

The democratic socialists say their strong showing in Chicago’s election last month is partly a reaction to its entrenched machine politics, along with policies that progressives say have prioritized the wealthy over the interests of black, brown and working-class residents.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/mar/21/chicago-democratic-socialists-city-council-rossana-rodriguez

While I agree to a great extent with their characterization of the problem, I vehemently disagree with their collectivist solution. If you plan on keeping your business in Chicago plan on defending it.

If you can’t defend it then it ain’t yours.

Jacinda Ardern’s Gun Confiscation Scheme Is A Hysterical Reaction To The Mosque Shooting That Will Weaken New Zealand.

As I watched New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern’s first press conference after the mosque shooting, I was struck by how naive her comments were. She seemed to think that her country existed in a utopian world exempt from terrorism. Now, further demonstrating her naivete, she is proceeding with a hysterical, half-baked plan to confiscate the weapons her citizens need to defend against future attacks.

These are the facts for New Zealand. It will happen again. Law enforcement will not be there when it happens again, and via her gun confiscation scheme, she has eliminated the most effective measure her citizens have for defending themselves.

Exit question. Why is Jacinda taking weapons from lawful New Zealanders? The crime was committed by an Australian who purchased his weapons legally and held all of the proper permits.

The Sheriff Revolt on New Gun Laws Shows Why America Needs More Decentralization – Foundation for Economic Education

People would have far fewer political grievances in a decentralized system.

Article by Justin Murray

Recently, a dozen sheriffs in Washington state announced that they would refuse to enforce the newly passed Initiative 1639, which raised the legal age of purchasing a firearm of any sort to 21, expanded background check requirements, increased the waiting period, and mandated weapon storage when not in active use. Predictably, political proponents immediately threatened these sheriffs, who were hired to enforce county, not state, laws, with legal action. Of course, when I say passed, what I really mean is that 14 of 39 counties in Washington decided the referendum was a good idea.

The Gun Control Campaign Against The AR-15 Is Full Of Lies

“Moreover, the nice thing about having our individual rights codified in the Constitution is that Americans, unlike most others, don’t (or shouldn’t) have to explain ourselves to government officials. Though many Americans use ARs to hunt, I’m certain nothing in the Second Amendment (or the debates surrounding the Constitution) mention “hunting,” because the right to self-defense—both as an individual concern and a buttress against tyranny—had nothing to do with bagging deer. It was about the state taking away firearms.”

 

 

Political efforts to ban the AR-15 are part of an incremental movement by gun controllers to ban all semi-automatic guns.

Less than 24 hours after mass shooting at mosques, New Zealand vows to ban semi-automatic rifles. Idiocracy at its best.

Less than 24 hours after mass shooting at mosques, New Zealand vows to ban semi-automatic rifles

This is idiotic. And counterproductive. Instead, Jacinda Ardern should pass an emergency declaration authorizing funding to subsidize the cost of semi-automatic rifles and training for all houses of worship in New Zealand.

Why?

Because her ban won’t stop the next attack.

Because profiling won’t identify the next risk.

Because cops won’t be there in time.

Because worshipers are the best defenders of their place of worship.

Because properly vetted and selected worshipers can quickly learn how to be safe and effective defenders of their house of worship.

That’s why.

This is security theater in it’s most absurd version.
