It was announced a couple months ago and I have not heard much follow up but the news reported that Trump was going to appoint vaccine skeptic Robert Kennedy to head up a vaccine review board. Though the mainstream media claims that there is no problem with vaccines and the majority of the public accepts this, the truth is that the science of vaccines is far from settled. A weekend of research would lead most people to doubt the official line that vaccines are harmless. Any vaccine insert explains all the potential health problems with vaccines, additionally the Freedom of Information act has exposed massive collusion with the CDC and vaccine manufacturers. Moreover, Freedom of Information Act requests have exposed “secret” meetings in which the CDC immunologists admit that there is risk and they don’t really know what do about it. Today, there have also been whistle blowers that have exposed CDC coverup of MMR and autism link. Science is not black and white. There is never such a thing as a consensus. There is always a majority and minority opinion. Anytime people claim that the “science is settled” it much more indicative of special interests pushing an agenda rather than embracing true scientific discovery which traditionally has been a great hallmark of civilization.
There is an Autism crisis in this country, whether vaccine related or not, this should be a much larger concern than whatever political distraction is happening during any given news cycle. Vaccines have neurotoxins, whether they are in a high enough amount to cause damage is debatable but there presence in indisputable.
Mercola recently wrote an article on Trump’s appointment.
We living in interesting times, a total outsider has become president of the United States. The great historian Gary North (not a Trump supporter) claims that this has only happened twice in Western history. Lenin and Hitler, Gary North is not comparing Trump’s policies or personality to them but just that they were legit outsiders. Though Trump has even done what those two could not, they both had political parties behind them. Trump did not, he only had a message, that he was not a politician and that he was going to “Make America Great Again.” His own party’s establishment hated and despised him. This made for great entertainment during the primaries and is still entertaining today. Though Trump is no Ron Paul he seems to have enraged all the globalists and power elite in a way that I would have thought impossible a few years ago. Though Trump is not liberty minded, I still think that the complete defeat of the enemies of freedom is healthy for liberty. Sometimes it is also enjoyable to watch the bad guys suffer even though Trump is still a great unknown. The Bush dynasty, the Clinton dynasty, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Lindsey Graham, and all the rich bankers and Wall St oligarchs have all thrown everything they had at Trump to no avail. Trump won and the globalists lost.
Even if Trump does not get anything done it is wonderful to see that “political correctness” has had a major defeat. Political correctness has always been a control mechanism for the global elite to control the thoughts and opinions of the masses. Anything slightly outside the very narrow establishment orthodoxy is considered hateful or at least not respectable. No counter arguments have to be given, it is just taken for granted that certain opinions are wrong and should be ignored or ridiculed. Now people feel much more free (though far from completely free) to express there own thoughts. Obviously some thoughts other people might find unsavory but the freedom to expression them is so much more important than trying to constantly attempting to avoid offense. Back in the 1960’s it was not uncommon for universities to have Nazi’s give speeches on campus, not because people agreed with them obviously but because freedom of speech was so highly valued. Not today, speech is more controlled than ever before, anyone who tries to go onto a university campus and express any opinion outside the mainstream will get shouted down. Trump might be the beginning of a change. Is Trump just a brief flash in the pan or is there a massive rebellion among the public going on? Interesting times, maybe even dangerous times. Hopefully people will look towards liberty rather than a political savior.
Below is a interesting Podcast with Lew Rockwell and Angelo Cordevilla disusing political correctness and the rise of Trump.
The traditional political spectrum is fracturing. No longer are the political parties able to hold together consensus. There is no American consensus any longer, maybe their never was but today it is becoming obvious that Americans have vastly different visions of the American future. Bernie Sanders, a self declared socialist, is progressives choice. For a long time socialists have had hide their ideology to get elected. No longer, they are now feel their numbers are strong enough that they can wear the ideology out in the open. The Alt-Right is also an interesting development. They are explicitly non-libertarian but also feel that the political establishment has sold America down the river. What do these movements mean for the future of the United States? Jeff Deist explains below.
Many libertarians are for open borders but there has been a large shift in the last couple years. Hans-Herman Hoppe is probably the one of the most well know Austrian economists that has contributed to this shift. From an purely economic point of view open immigration makes sense, after all, free trade is a good thing. If we believe in the free movement of goods across borders why not people? Hans- Herman Hoppe has countered this that a group of have the right to associate with who they want and that also means that they have the right to not associate with who they want. This is a basic natural right. My views have shifted to the Hoppe view. Moving whole groups or cultures into a civiliation ate a rate that is impossible to assimilate is a fools errand. This is made increasingly worse with the modern welfare states, this puts a drag on the whole system and consumes a great amount of resources. This is what is happening to Sweden today and this has become one of the best examples. The video below explains.
Trump is obviously not a liberty minded individual but it is very enjoyable to watch the political establishment lose complete control and relentlessly attack the front runner of the Republican presidential field. The neocon dominated National Review has taken out all the stops to attack Trump. In its upcoming issue “The National Review issue features anti-Trump essays from more than 20 conservative thinkers” with its cover screaming “Against Trump”. WOW! Where was the National Review when the Republican party was nominating boring moderates like Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney? What is there obsession with Trump? Why the deep hatred of the man? The answer is simple, both parties are controlled by powerful interest groups and opinion makers. Both parties hate populism because all opinions supposed to be delicately molded by New York intellectuals. Trump’s candidacy appears to be some sort of divine justice, as the National Review has always been dominated by moderates and “former” leftists that have spent much of their history purging the right of anyone who questions the Bill Buckley foreign policy. Tom Woods has an excellent podcast episode here and Murry Rothbard has written about this as well.
I believe that the new National Review article reveals how desperate the establishment is and how much they are losing control of the narrative. For all of Trump’s faults, he appears to be his own man, un-owned by the powerful Washington special interests. This is extremely rare in national politics. The only examples of this kind of populism subverting the political establishment in the last century have William Jennings Bryan and Barry Goldwater. The Republican establishment has spent the last 50 years trying to prevent something like this happening again. Now it happening. It reminds me of an old Klingon proverb, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”
This is sure strange. Why would the government classify pages from the 9/11 Report? This is a tax payer funded report after all. The government dragged their feet for a long time before doing any kind of investigation but finally the 9/11 victims family’s were able to pressure the government enough to publish a report. But, alas, some info the American people just do not need to know or so our wise government officials believe. Is the Saudi Government involved? This is the rumor in D.C. If true, this would be a news item groundbreaking significance and probably the most important revelation to occur during my life.
