Bill Gates Finally Says Something that is True

“The Ukrainian government is one of the worst in the world, corrupt, controlled by a few rich people. I mean, really unfortunate for the people in Ukraine,” said Bill Gates, one of richest men in the world.

Yuri Maltsev on the Purpose of Government

I’ve received quite a few emails in response to my eulogy for Yuri Maltsev published on the weekend edition of LRC from people who either knew Yuri, heard him speak at a conference, or watched him on YouTube.   My favorite so far is from B.G., who describes himself as a “Ron Paulian libertarian” who left the “Republican fascist party” years ago.  He met Yuri in 1989 at Mises University at Stanford, which I think I probably participated in.  He asked Yuri about the differences between the USSR and the USA.  “You Americans are kind,” Yuri told him.  “When we heard there were bananas available at a store,” B.G. recalls Yuri telling him, “a long line would form and 4 or 5 big men would push their way to the front of the line and buy everything.”  The lesson B.G. learned from this that, thanks to our higher degree of economic freedom, “Our abundance allowed us to practice kindness.”

The second thing that Yuri told him was that “The U.S. government was just as corrupt as the USSR government” but, foolishly and unlike Russians, “Americans still believe their government.”  “Don’t you know,” Yuri said, “The purpose of government is to take bribes”?

Despite The Contrived Distorted Narrative of Court Intellectuals and Regime Publicists, “National Socialism” Was Indeed Socialism; Hitler and Goebbels Were Socialists

The common collectivist roots of internationalist Marxist Socialism and German National Socialism is a crucial topic that bears constant repetition to the attentive public. The subject has received previous detailed exposure in vital works such as Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn’s Leftism: from de Sade and Marx to Hitler and Marcuse; Ludwig von Mises, Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis and Omnipotent Government: The Rise of The Total State and Total War; George Watson, The Lost Literature of Socialism; and Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change. Historical truth matters. After almost a century the bloody historical truth must be recognized. We owe it to the tens of millions slaughtered based upon its lies.

Why Not Instead Sue to Not Wear a Mask at All?

Some are calling it a victory for religious freedom, but a child wearing a mask to school is not freedom no matter what slogan is on the mask. Lydia Booth, 11, will now be allowed to wear her “Jesus Loves Me” face mask to school, thanks to a settlement that has been reached between the Simpson County School District in Mississippi and the attorneys representing Lydia. What parent would now, in 2023 (not 2020 when perhaps they didn’t know better), put a mask on her child and send her to school?

Why Does Our Government Lie About Inflation?

If government lies about Covid and the vaccines, lies about the reasons for wars and how the wars are going, do you think it tells the truth about inflation? If government almost completely ignores the Constitution (which is the ‘Law of the Land’ that they all swear to obey) are you surprised that your cost of living is skyrocketing way beyond what the government claims? You shouldn’t be.

Tanks for Nothing!

That’s probably what the Ukranian Nazi Zionist Zelensky told Senile Joe after the latter promised to send thirty-one tanks along with fourteen more from Germany.  Russia is said to have over 10,000 tanks.  Oh, those Russians will be running for the hills once those Biden tanks show up!

One decades-long feature of “in-kind” foreign aid such as sending tractors and tanks is that it is in reality first and foremost corporate welfare for the American corporations that manufacture these things.  And, they typically send all the defective ones, paid for by U.S. taxpayers, to the foreign recipients of the “aid.”  The recipients then become ungrateful for all the “aid” they have received and demand cash instead.  It’s much easier for them to stash cash away in Swiss bank accounts than tractors, tanks, and fighter jets.

Remembering Butler Shaffer

In digging up some of my old photos, I came across this photo of my dear friend, Butler Shaffer, from 2009. We were in Minneapolis, and Butler was speaking in a typical libertarian-variety speaker setting: a high-end, snazzy, classy, basement warehouse room somewhere near Uptown.

The day after, Butler and I drove to the great (but no longer) booktown of Stillwater, Minnesota, about 40 minutes northeast. We hit the many bookstores there, and while we were at St. Croix Antiquarian Books, his wife Jane called, and she asked to talk to me. “Don’t let Butler bring home any more books,” she said. Me: “Too late; he’s already looking to get in line with a small stack.”

The Great Reset Event-Destroying Mentality

So I foolishly thought I might love to attend a game of the local (Detroit) NBA ‘G League’ affiliate, the Motor City Cruise. There are affordable tickets and one can be very close to the action, and the games are played at at convenient location: Wayne State University. Then I checked the “policies.” The Great Reset, in its attempt to crush western civilization, has made its permanent mark on all of these events, hence none of them ever getting a penny of my money. The insanity lives on: expecting a female to not carry a purse/fanny pack/bag — gee, I can do without a wallet, my brush, my glasses, my glass cleaner, my phone, my keys, let alone other treasured female incidentals.

But you know what the human-crushing apologists do on social media? They chime in and pretend that women can just shut up and wear oversized, men’s carpenter pants with 154 pockets and shove all their money and stuff in pockets and … “stop complaining.” And of course, the resident security theatre trainee can just sift through your lower body crevices via the pockets and claim he’s keeping you safe. And then you get turned away, anyway, because your pockets contain assorted, illegal trinkets.

Just say no to all of this sick, monkey farm mentality and stop feeding the beast.

His “Eyebrow-Raising Political Antics Have Turned Some Fans Against Him”

This is what an article about the career of the actor Vince Vaughn on msn.com yesterday said about him.  And what kind of “antics” were they referring to?  Well, they say “Vaughn calls himself a libertarian” (Horrors!!!) and worse yet, they cite an article where he said “I really do like Ron Paul.”  He prefers freedom to tyranny, in other words, and respects people like Ron Paul who are especially good at articulating the case for a free society and against tyranny and despotism.  Good riddance to his fans who deserted him for this reason.

The Military Wing of the Democrat Party is Back in Action

A “protester” who was protesting the building of a police training center in Atlanta pulled out a gun and shot a state trooper in the stomach.  The trooper is recovering from surgery.  The police returned fire and killed the murderous scumbag, identified as a “non-binary” animal who describes him/itself with several pronouns.  Naturally, Antifa and other elements of the military wing of the Demo-Bolshevik party showed up and rioted in Atlanta, smashing windows, setting buildings on fire, setting a police car on fire, and assaulting the police.  The police are at fault here, they say, and this view has been echoed by the LMS (Lying Media Scum) on CNN and elsewhere.  One CNN guest even said that such behavior was not “violent” but merely more peaceful protesting.  The point of the “protesting” of course is that Left-wing thugs should be free to shoot cops without anyone criticizing them for doing so.

This kind of behavior suddenly ended the moment the LMS (not Congress, as required by the Constitution) declared Brandon to be the winner of the presidential election, but now they’re back.

A Great Day in History

On this day in 1977, President Carter pardoned draft dodgers who evaded the killing fields of Vietnam. Too bad everyone did not evade the draft. You cannot have a war without soldiers. There is nothing heroic about going half way around the world where you have no business going and killing people. Never, ever listen to government reasons for fighting a foreign war. They are always lies.

“Don’t New York My Florida”

From the back of a t-shirt I frequently wore on my ten-mile bike rides in South Florida.  Governor DeSantis should declare this to be the Eleventh Commandment (or at least the new state motto) in light of over a hundred and twenty thousand New Yorkers moving to his state in just the past two years.

What’s Davos Up To?

Once again, a globalist meeting has taken place in Davos, Switzerland this week. Of course, one terrible idea after another was propagated. The world and all of humanity is not meant to be micromanaged by a group rich individuals with access to the levers of power. Yet that is what globalists want to achieve. The people of the world must be very vigilant in protecting their individual liberty.

The Heterophobic NHL

The sports media is trashing Ivan Provorov of the Philadelphia Flyers professional hockey team for declining to participate in a pre-game gay “pride celebration” for religious reasons.  It is now apparently required of NHL players that they “celebrate” the fact that there are men having sex with other men.  It’s never enough for the professional homosexuals that people simply ignore them and care not a whit about who they are having sex with; we must celebrate it.  And one’s Christian beliefs must never, ever stand in the way of forcing everyone to publicly celebrate gay sex.  Some virtue-signaling idiots in the sports media are calling for a $1 million fine imposed on Provorov by the NHL.

This is blatant heterophobia since neither the Flyers nor any other hockey team has a heterosexual pride celebration at any of their games.  Is that even legal?

Tucker Carlson Exposes More Deep State Perfidy Regarding The JFK Assassination, The CIA, And Watergate

Tucker Carlson Tonight openly talked about the deep state, the CIA and its connection to the JFK assassination, and how Nixon was the most popularly elected president in history and how he (and Spiro Agnew) were brought down by the deep state and replaced by Warren Commission stooge Gerald Ford. Here is the real story of Watergate.

What an Admission

Former Trump OMB Director, Mick Mulvaney: “The truth of the matter is that the first two years of the Trump administration, when the Republicans had the House and the Senate, we raised spending faster than the last couple of years of the Obama administration.”

And you thought that if the Republicans gained control of the Congress in the midterm election that it would have meant something?

Biden’s Hipster Role Model!

Lew, Tom:

With all that stuck in time “C’mon man!” and Corvette stuff, Steve Sailer has a pretty good take on just who Biden’s personality role model was:

“Biden is so old that his sense of what is cool permanently congealed roughly the day JFK was elected President, so that he talks like Edd “Kookie” Byrnes, the greaser valet parker in the 1958 detective show 77 Sunset Strip, whose lingo was a cross among beatnik, kandy-kolored tangerine-flake streamline baby car guy, and Strategic Air Command pilot.”
