Viktor Orbán Saves The West: George Soros’ Network Facing Expulsion In Hungary

George Soros’ philanthropic network, the Open Society Foundations, may be on its way out in Hungary, as the anti-globalist right wing prime minister Viktor Orbán takes aim at the leftist billionaire for subversive behavior.

“We are considering various options, as the security of our staff in Budapest and the integrity of our work is of paramount importance,” the NGO wrote. “The Open Society Foundations are closely watching developments around the draft legislation that would dramatically restrict the activities of civil society in Hungary.”

Meanwhile, the Hungarian government – emboldened by recent elections that strengthened the regime of Orbán – is doubling-down on its criticism of Soros and his network and is looking to take swift action against its influence.

Trump: “Russia Will Tell You There Has Been Nobody Tougher” On Them Than Me

President Donald Trump is speaking out strongly against Russia.

Trump Nominates Another Obama-Approved Federal Reserve Nominee

In no area has President Trump differed more from his campaign rhetoric than the field of monetary policy. Yesterday Trump announced the nominations of Richard Clarida and Michelle Bowman to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, with the former to fill the role of Vice Chair. Clarida’s nomination in particular illustrates how uninspiring Trump’s appointments … Keep Reading

Alt-right media personality Mike Peinovich, who hosts The Daily Shoah podcast under the pseudonym Mike Enoch, was booted off Twitter this week for leading a campaign against the war on Syria that gained the support of a more mainstream conservative thinker. Enoch, who ran his own Twitter with a disclaimer saying it was a parody … Keep Reading

President Donald Trump, led by his Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has doubled-down on enforcement of the federal drug war.

Rate Hike Cycle To End In 2020?

in Economics by

A big question investors are trying to wrap their heads around is why the headlines suddenly matter to equities in 2018. There were geopolitical concerns in 2017, yet stocks were sanguine. This year, negative headlines seem to impact stocks more. There’s no doubt some of the uncertainties could affect stocks in the intermediate term. In that case investors come up with an expected return which is the various levels of impacts multiplied by the probability of them occurring. The point we’re getting at is the reason stocks have responded to negative headlines is because there’s a backdrop of global growth…

Attractive People Are More Likely To Be Republican

in Politics by

The more attractive you are, the more likely you are to be a Republican. You may assume that statement is just a bias writer’s opinion. It’s not. In fact, it is a conclusion reached in a survey published in the Journal of Public Economics in December 2017. Research was led by Rolfe Daus Peterson from Susquehanna University and Carl Palmer from Illinois State University. The duo compared data from 1972, 1974 and 1976 American National Study surveys which asked people to evaluate the appearance of others. The survey also explored participants’ political beliefs, income, race, gender, and education.

Reviewing An Anti-Social Justice Comic Book Satire: ‘Dingue!’ By Jacobi Kid

in Culture by

Jakobus Nieuwodt, better known as Jacobi Kid, friend and cohort of the Barbaric Gentleman best known for his seminal satirical work Fifty Shades of Adolf, has recently come out with a comic book (I hesitate to call it a graphic novel for reasons that will be revealed below) called Dingue!, which serves as a satire of the superhero medium in general and the recent Social Justice Warrior turn that Marvel Comics has been on recently in particular. While there are some funny lines and interesting ideas here, as a comic book fan myself I also found that this book was…

Don’t Regulate Facebook — That’s What Zuckerberg Wants

in Politics/Tech by

If Facebook disappeared forever this afternoon, I wouldn’t exactly be upset about it. I’m astounded when I see people post loads of personal information on the site, including posts about all their travel plans, their shopping habits, their daily routines, and their family members. Long is the list of people who have been harassed by law enforcement agencies or “child welfare” agencies in response to something they said or did on Facebook. And, given what we know about Big Tech’s willingness to collaborate with government agencies, people who are fond of posting their every move in Facebook might as well hand over…

Solving Colombia’s Drug Violence Dilemma: Legalize Drugs And Guns

in Politics/World by

With the 2018 Colombian presidential elections rapidly approaching, presidential front-runners Iván Duque and Gustavo Petro face numerous challenges ahead. One of them involves dealing with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the perpetrators of a more than 50-year-long armed conflict in Colombia that has left 220,000 dead and has displaced over 5.7 million people. Part of outgoing President Manuel Santos’ legacy was brokering a peace deal with the FARC that would be decided by the Colombian people through a popular referendum. However, things did not go Santos’ way at first when Colombians rejected the peace accords by the thinnest of margins. Following the original peace agreement’s defeat, Santos’ government and the FARC came together…

Paul Ryan Was a Failure — It’s Important To Understand Why

in Politics by

Paul Ryan’s retirement from Congress marks the end for one of the most prominent Republicans of his generation. Even before taking the role of Speaker of the House, Ryan had managed to become, in the words of Mitt Romney, the “intellectual leader” of the post-Bush GOP. Unfortunately Ryan’s story can be seen as nothing but a tragedy. By all accounts he is a good-natured man, but one who ended up betraying almost all the causes he claimed to care about. The legend of Paul Ryan begins when he was a college student studying economics and political science. As his enemies in DC…

Hey, Republicans: Stop Crying And Start Leading!

in Politics by

House Speaker Paul Ryan’s retirement announcement Wednesday suggests that Republicans are bracing for heavy losses in November, perhaps costing them control of the House and even the Senate. But the biggest danger for Republicans is not ferocious Democrats, who collectively resemble a freshly fueled tank brigade. What Republicans have to fear is…fear itself. In nearly every center-Right gathering that I have attended lately, the sense of impending doom threatens to become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Improving GOP numbers in the generic ballot, President Donald J. Trump’s rising approval ratings, and encouraging news — from the economy to the becalmed Korean peninsula…

‘Minds’: Founder Of New, Pro-Free Speech Social Network Speaks Out

Ottman emphasized the “transparency” and “privacy” of his new network as distinguishing factors from its better-known competitors, including Facebook and Twitter. “We’re helping people actually earn for their productivity, instead of getting exploited,” he continued.

Cargo Cult Libertarianism

in Politics by

A mere six years after Ron Paul’s last presidential run the “liberty movement” has collapsed. As many former Ron Paul libertarians jumped ship and joined either the far left or the alt right, once thriving grassroots organizations were forced to either close up shop, sell out, and/or severely limit their operations. Campaign for Liberty, for example, effectively shut down all of its grassroots operations for lack of interest. Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) was forced to consolidate its low-turnout State Conventions into larger Regional Conventions, in order to make it look like more people were showing up, while Students for…

Trump’s “atrocities” Began As Democrat Policies

in Politics by

President Donald J. Trump announced Tuesday that he will deploy U.S. troops to reinforce America’s “border” with Mexico. Democrats were not amused. “We don’t need to turn our border communities into militarized zones,” Congressman Joaquin Castro of Texas said. His colleague Ruben Gallego of Arizona declared that the armed forces should not “stand guard against dangers that exist only in President Trump’s fevered imagination.” That fever also must have struck Trump’s predecessor. “President Obama will deploy 1,200 National Guard troops and request an extra $500 million to secure the Mexican border,” the Washington Post reported on May 26, 2010. “The initiative echoes 2006’s Operation Jump Start, in which President George W. Bush devoted…

Removal Of Neo-Nazi Website From Internet Has Broader Implications For Global Censorship

in Politics by

The Daily Stormer, a white nationalist and neo-Nazi website that was seen as an instrumental force behind the ‘Unite the Right’ fiasco in Charlottesville last summer, was thrown off of the Internet capriciously by Cloudfire CEO Matthew Prince shortly after that event took place. “I woke up this morning in a bad mood and decided to kick them off the Internet,” he said last year. Since then, Daily Stormer has appeared on many different hosts and registrars but has remained on the web. Prince is now suffering the consequences for his decision, as his company is being sued by adult…

Secession Is Going Mainstream

in Politics by

If it seems like secession is become a more frequent topic in the global media, it’s not just your imagination.  In recent years, talk of political separatist movements have become not only more commonplace, but are increasingly discussed as reasonable alternatives to the status quo.  Historically, of course, established states have long sought to portray secession movements as unsavory forms of agitation pushed only by extremists.  In the US, of course, secession has long been portrayed as strictly the realm of right-wing zealots motivated by racism, or even something worse.  In 2014, however, it became increasingly clear that this strategy’s days…

Global Growth Is Slowing

in Economics by

Despite significant controversy surrounding the trade war between the US and China, which as the WSJ recently pointed out that China was the first to start, the economy will barely be affected by the recently announced tariffs. Currently, based on speculation and rhetoric, the trend appears to be towards negotiation rather than an outright trade war. Since it’s in no country’s interest to cease trading, it doesn’t look like that will occur. This is a geopolitical chess match rather than a war. The headlines and rumors of tariffs can spook the market in the short term, but over the medium…

GOP’s Omnibus Bill Should Have Gone Off a Cliff

in Economics/Politics by

The Republican Party needed just 90 days to tumble from triumph to self-humiliation. On December 22, President Donald J. Trump signed the $1.5 trillion Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the most significant levy reduction since 1986. Even Trump’s critics conceded that Republicans ended 2017 on an unexpectedly high note, with their free-market banners flapping smartly in the tail winds. But on March 22, the GOP House hosted a drunken orgy of bipartisan fiscal recklessness. The resulting $1.3 trillion omnibus bill should have been steered off a cliff.

Privileged Whites Leave Inner-City Minorities Defenseless With Gun Control Push

As the privileged white community of Parkland, FL spreads its message of universal disarmament following a high school shooting, the voices of inner-city communities are not being heard as the debate continues. In Detroit — where violent crime is a much more regular occurrence than it is in the suburbs — residents as well as police personnel recognize that more gun control is not the answer for keeping communities safe. “You watch the news and it’s like, ‘somebody got shot on Puritan and Fenkell; oh, well, on to the next one,’ ” said Deidra Harris-Thomas, whose son was shot dead…

Slowest Hike Cycle Since 1977

In this article, we’re going to look at the three main causes of the stock market correction that occurred in March which came close to matching the lows set in February. When you understand the reasons the market fell, it helps you figure out where stocks will likely go for the rest of the year. Obviously, new headlines always pop up, but it’s good to understand the basics of why markets moved in the past before making future projections. The three main stories which tell us why stocks fell in March are a weakening economy, which should be temporary, a…

Is More Fed Transparency Worse For Markets?

in Economics by

Obviously, Powell taking the helm at the Federal Reserve means potential policy changes, but that’s not the only thing that could change. The Fed’s communication strategy could also change. Its communication is how it delivers forward guidance. It’s arguable that the Fed’s forward guidance is the most important tool it has, so any change to how the Fed uses this tool is very important to monetary policy. Powell’s changes could formulate a legacy which affects how future Fed chairs operate. For example, Ben Bernanke started holding 4 press conferences per year after Fed rate decisions starting in April 2011. Since…

The Founding Fathers Would Agree: End The Legislative Filibuster

While announcing his intention to sign a massive $1.3 trillion, 2,000 plus page omnibus spending bill derided by fiscal conservatives and many of his core supporters, President Trump called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to end the so-called legislative filibuster. “We have to get a lot of great legislation approved, and without the filibuster rule, it’ll happen just like magic,” President Trump declared at a press conference Friday where he also called for the reinstatement of the line-item veto.

Mueller Should Probe Clintons’ $152 Million-plus In Russian-collusion Payoffs

in Politics by

Strolling one afternoon near Manhattan’s Sixth Avenue and West 34th Street, I spotted two tourists with their faces nestled in a map. They looked hopelessly lost. “Can I help you?” I asked. Thoroughly flummoxed, they pleaded, “Where’s the Empire State Building?” I pointed straight up, one block east, and said: “It’s right there!” Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team resemble those hapless visitors. They scour their guidebook in vain for any trace of Team Trump’s alleged Russian collusion. Meanwhile, just steps away, the Clintons’ Russian-collusion skyscraper soars into the clouds.

Why (Most) Children Shouldn’t Vote

in Politics by

Media outlets from The Washington Post to CNN are now calling for changes in law that will allow children to vote.  The motivation appears to be the perception that teenagers are more in favor of gun control than older people. Thus, gun control advocates right now are seeing young people are more reasonable, and humane than their elders. So why not give them the vote? At least then, we would have young people to balance out those awful old people who refuse to defer to the sensible position that cops and soldiers — undoubtedly the most enlightened people among us — should be the only people…

When “Mental Health” Is Used To Empower The State

in Politics by

Cries for gun control have reached deafening levels since the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida on February 14th, 2018. Exploiting the tragedy that left 17 people dead, gun control advocates are using every means possible to ram gun control measures across legislatures nationwide. One avenue that gun control proponents have pursued is the advancement of legislation containing mental health restrictions. Consequently, legislators at both the federal and state level have recently proposed extensive background checks and mental health screening processes to ensure that guns don’t fall into the hands of the mentally unstable. For many gun control proponents, the current National Instant Criminal Background Check…

How The Fed Could End The Bull Market

in Economics by

With the new economic and trade policy policy commentary coming out of Washington seemingly on a daily basis, along with the much discussed stock correction from February, which was caused by the unwind of the short volatility trade, it’s easy to lose track of what the Fed will do in 2018 and how it will affect markets. Prior to the March 2018 Fed meeting the biggest event was new Fed chair Jerome Powell’s testimony in front of Congress where he seemed to express bullishness on the U.S. economy. Powell’s bullishness combined with the January labor report caused a sharp reaction…

It was announced this week that the Denver Post will soon be cutting one-third of its newsroom staff. The newsroom currently has 100 reporters, and that will soon be cut by 30 positions.  Reporters and other observers quickly began to look for whom to blame.  One reporter quickly blamed the hedge fund (Alden Global Capital) that owns the Post: ” 30 people to be cut from @denverpost by April 9.

Bill Ackman V. Herbalife: Crony Capitalism’s Failure

Over five years after billionaire investor and political donor William Ackman took a massive short position on nutritional supplement company Herbalife Ltd in an effort to kill the company for profit and this past week his firm has finally given up. Over the years, most of Ackman’s $571,000 donations to federal campaigns has gone to Democrats like Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT). By contrast, Carl Icahn, who donated $240,673 to Republicans in 2016, invested in the Herbalife’s success and he was rewarded with about $1 billion for supporting a company that has proven to be a…
