America’s Political Implosion

America’s democracy and constitution is being trashed by unelected shadowy forces, aided and abetted by prestigious media outlets like the New York Times. These forces presume to know better or have more privilege than their fellow Americans who “voted the wrong way”.

The Bruges Group: The Voting League Table of MPs

With a General Election around the corner, the most important question for voters is which MPs are committed to leaving the EU and delivering on the will of the people and which MPs have always been wedded to Europe and will stop at nothing to betray the result of the 2016 EU referendum? Parliament voted overwhelmingly to hold a referendum and then trigger Article 50, yet three years on from the referendum date and two extensions past the 31st March, the Commons needs a new election to chuck out the Remainers who refuse to support Brexit. MPs List Votes List For…

Ron Paul: Bill Dudley’s Noble Lie

Former Federal Reserve official Bill Dudley’s recent op-ed calling for the Federal Reserve to implement policies that will damage President Trump’s reelection campaign states that such action would be unprecedented. Dudley claims the Federal Reserve bases its policies solely on an objective evaluation of economic conditions. This is an example of a so-called noble lie — a fiction told by elites to the masses supposedly for the people’s own good, but really designed to maintain popular support for policies that benefit the elites. Dudley’s noble lie is designed to bolster a rapidly (and deservedly) eroding trust in the Federal Reserve.…

Peak Brexit Lunacy

The sound and fury signifying nothing in the Stop Brexit At All Costs drama has reached a deafening crescendo today. Remainers are going to get their Bill to lock the UK into a long extension in order to hold a second referendum (in which actually leaving the EU may not be an option). They should be thrilled. But big bad BoJo entered stage left and said (to great effect, by the way) that he would “rather be dead in a ditch” than ask for an Article 50 extension. Nothing quite like a do or die remark to get people’s blood…

Paul Craig Roberts: I Feel Sorry for President Trump

Yes, I know.  I am lining up on the wrong side.  You are supposed to hate him. The presstitutes hate Trump.  So does the Democratic Party, part of the Republican Party, the military/security complex, the entirety of the liberal/progressive/left, the universities, feminists, and Washington’s vassal states.  No one likes him but the “racist, white supremacist Trump deplorables.” Nevertheless, I feel sorry for him.  I started feeling sorry for him when he announced he would run for President of the United States.  You see, I had inside information. I had held a presidential appointment from a President of the United States.  I ended up fighting battles for…

Germany Slides towards Instability

At first blush the results in Germany for the EU elections looked like nothing of significance had happened. The media trumpeted the regression of the right. Alternative for Germany’s (AfD) 11% after polling as high as 18% in 2018 made it look like Angela Merkel had weathered the storm against her chancellorship from the right. But, in doing so, she opened herself up to attack from the Left. The combined results for the ruling coalition in Germany was only 45% with the Social Democrats (SPD) under-performing even their recent bad polling data, garnering just 15.8% of the vote. It was…

In the Marginals, It’s the Leavers Who Are in Revolt

The Remainers’ revolt is one of the most influential concepts in the number-crunching world of British politics. Some Conservative MPs fear that moving towards a hard Brexit could lose them key constituencies in the south of England. Labour is under pressure from its members to back a second referendum, lest they face a Remain backlash at the ballot box. But if we look at key marginals, we find that it is not the Remainers who are the real threat to two main parties. It’s the Leavers. The headline figures of the local elections seemed to imply the potency of this…

Morrison Victory Highlights Divide between Elites and Ordinary Australians

The election victory was clearly a triumph for both the style and substance of Prime Minister Scott Morrison. But the most important post-election issue now is the battle to control the narrative surrounding the causes and meaning of the result. The advantages the PM enjoyed over his opponent are now obvious. These included his mastery of policy detail, his capacity to speak directly to the aspirations of middle Australia, and his authenticity and ‘ordinary everyman’ persona in expressing everything from footy fanatism to his Christian faith. Tax policy — given the targeting of Labor’s franking credits, CGT, and negative gearing…

The Worst US 2020 Election Interference Will Be Perfectly Legal

“After the Mueller report was released, our president called Vladimir Putin, spent an hour on the phone with him,” Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said on CBS’s Face The Nation yesterday. “Described the report as a hoax, giving Putin a green light to further interfere in our democracy.” “Russia interfered in the 2016 election,” tweeted presidential candidate Kamala Harris the other day. “If we don’t do anything to upgrade our election infrastructure, we will leave our nation vulnerable to future attacks.” We’ve been seeing many such hysterical warnings about Russian interference in the upcoming 2020 elections, and as the election gets nearer we are 100 percent guaranteed to…
