Authored by Robert Murphy via The Mises Institute, Namely, the states that took advantage of ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion saw a worse impact on their mortality rates than the states that rejected the expansion. One of the popular objections to the GOP proposals to reform health insurance markets is that the Affordable Care Act (aka “ObamaCare”) saved thousands of lives per year, and hence that tinkering with ObamaCare will literally kill lots of people. Now to be sure, even if the claim were true, it still wouldn’t follow that coercive redistribution of wealth was morally justified. However, as happens so often in political controversies, libertarians don’t have to choose between propertyRead More →

The divided Democratic Party is in the process of destroying Bernie Sanders and the division he represents. In April last year a local Vermont news publication revealed that the Justice Department was looking into the possibility that Jane O’Meara Sanders – the wife of Bernie Sanders and former president of Vermont’s Burlington College – had previously made questionable financial disclosures in order to secure a loan for the liberal arts school she headed. It was alleged that in seeking a $10 million loan in order to execute her plan of expanding the college, O’Meara Sanders inflated $2 million that she said donors had promised toRead More →

Authored by Shaun Bradley via TheAntiMedia.org, The United States’ ability to maintain its influence over the rest of the world has been slowly diminishing. Since the petrodollar was established in 1971, U.S. currency has monopolized international trade through oil deals with the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and continuous military interventions. There is, however, growing opposition to the American standard, and it gained more support recently when several Gulf states suddenly blockaded Qatar, which they accused of funding terrorism. Despite the mainstream narrative, there are several other reasons why Qatar is in the crosshairs. Over the past two years, it conducted over $86Read More →

Authored by Satyajit Das, originally posted at Bloomberg.com, Around the world, a generational divide is worsening…   Edmund Burke saw society as a partnership between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are yet to be born. A failure to understand this relationship underlies a disturbing global tendency in recent decades, in which the appropriation of future wealth and resources for current consumption is increasingly disadvantaging future generations. Without a commitment to addressing this inequity, social tensions in many societies will rise sharply. Central to the issue is that the rapid rise in living standards and prosperity of the past 50Read More →

Meuller has a personal and professional relationship with Comey. They are and have long been allies. Comey regards his predecessor at the FBI as a mentor, while Mueller considers Comey his protégé.   The law governing the special counsel (28 CFR 600.7) specifically prohibits Mueller from serving if he has a conflict of interest in the case. The rule has been interpreted to mean that even the appearance of a conflict is sufficient for disqualification! So what constitutes a conflict;  “a personal relationship with any person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution” (28 CFR 45.2). Comey is that person.  Mueller has no choiceRead More →

Vladimir Putin, when speaking in a live call-in show with the Russian nation, the Russian president likened Comey to Edward Snowden, who was granted asylum in Russia in 2013, and scoffed at James Comey’s disclosure of his conversations with U.S. President Donald Trump, saying the move has made Comey eligible for political asylum in Russia. “It looks weird when the chief of a security agency records his conversation with the commander-in-chief and then hands it over to media via his friend,” Putin was quoted by Russia’s Tass. “This is strange. How then is the director of the FBI any different from Snowden? He is notRead More →

Yes There Was “Obstruction Of Justice” And Much Worse!! The obstruction of justice occurred before and during the 2016 presidential election. The Obama Administration,  Barak Obama, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, and Hillary Clinton, not only conspired to obstruct justice, they did so to conceal treasonous bribery and nefarious deals that were at the expense of United States national security. Why a Hillary Clinton private email server? Employing and vetting an IT staff is not a convenience. It is obvious to all. The only reason to keep the email server in her house was to be able to make the incriminating 33,000 emails disappear. To beRead More →
