Kremlin: Claims of Russian Backing for Trump in US Election ‘Untrue’ & Down to ‘Paranoia’

Vladimir Putin’s spokesman says statements suggesting Russia plans to interfere in this year’s US Presidential election “don’t have anything in common with the truth.” Dmitry Peskov slammed the idea that Moscow will attempt to help President Donald Trump achieve re-election as being of “paranoid character.” He was responding to US media reports which claimed US intelligence has warned politicians that Moscow is already...

Keep Throwing Spaghetti at That Wall

We’re reminded this morning by The New York Times, America’s official psychotic fantasy generator, that the Russians are coming (again!) as an ad hoc arm of the committee to re-elect Mr. Trump. You have to ask yourself: Does Mr. Trump actually need their help? His opponents have been self-meddling so diligently that their party now looks like a Frankenstein creature assembled from the spare parts of Herbert Marcuse, Tupac...

Is Earth’s Magnetic Field Reversing? – Video

“There is no evidence of increased extinction rates associated with any of the past reversals,” the announcer for PBS Space Time video assures us.Really!?? Oh, “there may be higher incidences of cancers and other mutations from more high-energy particles reaching the ground,” he continues. “And probably we’ll need to get much better at shielding satellites from the solar wind.” Higher incidences of cancer and other mutations, but no evidence of increased extinction...

How Trump Made the Federal Courts Blink

A quick back-and-forth occurred over the last week between President Trump and the nation’s federal judges.  After lying to Attorney General Barr about seeking a minimum sentence, the prosecutors in the Roger Stone case (including two from the Mueller Crew) entered a harsh sentencing recommendation that he serve a decade behind bars for lying to Congress.  President Trump rightly criticized the prosecutors for their double...

Freedom and Prosperity in Liechtenstein: A Hoppean Analysis

Liechtenstein has long been recognized as one of the most free and prosperous countries in the world. However, there has been little analysis of Liechtenstein’s development because the scant research that existed was in German and therefore inaccessible to most American scholars. Furthermore, many saw no need to study Liechtenstein, viewing it as an accident of history with an anachronistic political system. Liechtenstein’s...

Bloomberg Flunks Acting School

Special for LewRockwell.com Good work, Democrats!  In the Las Vegas debate, you blasted every target but Donald Trump.  Instead of quivering in his Gucci loafers, the man who would be king was left dancing on air. The man who should have been king, newcomer Mike Bloomberg, was left looking like a beaten-up cigar store Indian.  He had not prepped for the debate and failed to dodge the obvious incoming missile attacks on him...

The Death Of Free Speech: Zuckerberg Asks Governments For Instructions On ‘What Discourse Should Be Allowed’

I have written for years on the effort of European countries to expand their crackdown on free speech globally through restrictions on social media and Internet speech. It appears that Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has relented in what may prove the death knell for free speech in the West. Zuckerberg seems to relent in asking governments for regulations stipulating what speech will be permitted on Facebook and...

School vs. the Gateless Gate: Fixing the Damage

There are indeed, many paths through the gateless gate. This one is fairly easy — and when we arrive at the fence-line, there’s a little trick that will get you through. For me, it involved dishes – – – We’re at the first Way-Stone already – – – “‘You know what Indian time means?’ [an Ojibwe tribal leader] had responded in a session with local college students. ‘It means, ‘When I’m damn good and ready.’ The old man was...

The State and Heresy

Sobran’s: The Real News of the Month, March 2002 — In recent weeks I’ve been debating with people I usually agree with: conservative Christians. Many of them feel I’ve gone too far in the direction of philosophical anarchism, in defiance of both Scripture and Catholic teaching. One reader, a self-identified Catholic socialist, went so far as to call my views “heresy.” He cited particularly the encyclicals of Leo XIII and...

Blagojevich Is Finally Free, But Justice Has Not Been Served

In the pages of LewRockwell.com almost ten years ago, I penned a defense of former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich (here, here, and here). They were exclusives written for LRC after watching USA v Blagojevich at the federal courthouse in Chicago that summer 2010. Blagojevich is “a politician with whom I shared little common political or philosophical ground,” as I pointed out in The Hill five years ago, yet growing up in...
