‘Unnecessary, misleading, catastrophic’: Senior European physicians co-author expert statement on COVID vaccine for children – America’s Frontline Doctors

29 Jul

“Eminent European physicians and scientists this month co-authored an expert statement regarding Comirnaty–COVID-19 mRNA vaccine for children, outlining their expert opinions that “vaccination of adolescents for COVID-19 is unnecessary, claims demonstrating efficacy are misleading, and the safety profiles are catastrophic.” Authored by Former Chair, Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene,…”

The Most Shameful Conservative Attack on Drug Legalization – LewRockwell

28 Jul

“Christopher Bedford is against drug legalization. He is really against drug legalization. He is so against drug legalization that he penned the most shameful conservative attack on drug legalization that I have ever read—and I have read a lot of conservative attacks on drug legalization during the time that I have written over 100 articles on the drug war. Beford is the author of the article “Drug Legalization Is a Disaster, and Your Leaders Don’t Care About You,” published by The Federalist. I had actually never heard of Bedford until I came across his article. According to his bio: Christopher … “Continue reading →

Opinion | Congress Can’t Enact a Chicken

26 Jul

I sent the following email to Kessler about his column.

Your column today should be read by every American, especially the financial illiterates in DC and state capitals.  It is one of the most important essays I have read in a newspaper in my lifetime. Which is now in the middle of my eighth decade.  This is not an overstatement.   The Journal has published insightful essays over the years, but your column totally demolishes the Keynesian paradigm once and for all and should have an impact on policymakers.  However, I doubt it.  They all worship at the altar of the real “trickle down economics”–spend, tax, print money and regulate.   I will link your column on my blog.

Your point that “saving and investment must precede consumption” was articulated by Murray Rothbard on p. 22 of his 1962 essay, “The Case for a 100 Percent Gold Dollar,” “production – “purchase” of money – – “sale” of money.” I first read his essay in 1974 when I purchased his books and those of others of the Austrian school at the Foundation for Economic Education.   (https://cdn.mises.org/Case%20for%20a%20100%20Percent%20Gold%20Dollar_2.pdf)

I began each of my finance classes for 35 years (1985-2020) with this proposition that as a college professor I could consume goods and services because I provided a service–teaching finance.  Production indeed precedes consumption.  I point this out in my Fed book to highlight why printing money does not create wealth, and leads to numerous economic and financial distortions.    

Keep it up.  We will eventually have a free market economy.  The great unknown is when will policymakers admit their mistakes.

25 Jul

JFK – Accept Our Diverse World as It Is, by Patrick J. Buchanan 

23 Jul

“This is an amazing column on LRC today by conservative Pat Buchanan focusing upon “The Peace Speech” — JFK’s Commencement Address at American University, June 10, 1963. Buchanan demonstrates prudential insight and introspection in taking the core principled message of non-confrontational peaceful coexistence and mutual respect for diversity in Kennedy’s most important address of his presidency (hailed as one of the most important by any president) and applying it to the tense geopolitical conditions of today fraught with belligerence and mistrust. There are many observers who believe that it was this speech that directly led to JFK’s murder and the” … Continue reading →
