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.

Lew Rockwell and Tom Woods talk about the debate here
When I watched Republican debate’s it is pretty much one big yawn for me. Nothing really new is said ever during these pointless charades. Each candidate says many general slogans without saying anything of substance. They all talk about restoring “America’s greatness”, which apparently means defending Israel’s interests in the Middle East, ever expanding the police state, and giving more help to veterans. yawn. What departments will these supposed conservatives shut down? God forbid anyone even mentions the insane inflationary policies of the Federal Reserve. What about ending the drug war and illegal spying on Americans? Ending the IRS? What about following the Constitution in any way? How about restoring sound money? Nope, I guess we have to be tougher on Iran and Russia! God forbid any of these characters read George Washington’s farewell address.
Tom Woods talks about secession. When many people hear this they think of the Civil War or racism. This is too bad because secession is probably the most important right that a group of people retains. This is supposedly a ideal in the West, the right of people to have self determination. After World War I, Woodrow Wilson argued that all peoples have the right to rule themselves and choose their own destiny. Wilson might have not been sincere (he is a politician after all) but the whole Western world had to concede to Wilson’s moral stance. Self Determination is not just some slogan, it actually means something. Here in the United States, what used to be called “these United States”, the idea of one nation under rule of Washington DC is a more recent development. During the peace with King George after the Revolutionary War, each colony signed their own peace treaty with Britain because each was considered a sovereign country. It also generally assumed until the Civil War (or more accurately, “the war between the states”) that the union was voluntary. Lincoln’s acts of aggression against the South was a war of conquest and was illegal. We need to reevaluate this ancient tradition of secession and self determination. Smaller political units are much more responsive to the will of the people and are much better at protecting the rights of the individual. I hope for a future where each state is truly free to decide their own destiny, it is what we desperately need more than ever.
If you are not aware of Doug Casey he has an interesting perspective on libertarianism and investing. I have been reading and listening to him again recently and I thought it would be a good idea to post some of his stuff for anyone who has not heard of him.
Doug Casey believes that people, especially those interested in liberty, should not only diversify their assets into different economic sectors but also different political sectors as well. For example, a person with property in one country, a business in an other country, and a bank account in a different country will not be exposed to just one political risk. As the economic situation in the West continues to get worse, governments will look for new ways to expropriate wealth from their citizenry. American citizenship, which has been greatly valued for the last hundred years or more, might become a liability. Doug Casey says that we are in the eye of the economic storm that hit in 2008. When we reach the other side, the greatest economic crisis in modern history will begin. The videos below are a good introduction to Doug Casey’s views.

Who are the Clintons? Well it is one hell of a story!
and who in the heck is Vince Foster?
This is a very interesting interview with a PHD student on a Canadian news network. Where is Putin coming from and who is Aleksandr Dugin? It turns out that Aleksandr Dugin is a political philosopher from Russia. Needless to say that he has a much different view of history and the West in general. No matter one’s feeling on Putin, it is very compelling to hear about some of the philosophy undergirding much of Putin’s philosophy and foreign policy. Dugin believes that in the 20th century there have been three major political philosophies, fascism, communism, and liberalism. Fascism and communism have both failed and all that stands now is Western liberalism (or fascism?). Dugin makes the point that Western liberalism today is not the classical variety that rests on reason but is some kind of new strain of soulless modernism wrapped up in representative democracy. The fall of the Soviet Union was supposed to be the end of history resulting in the triumph of Western liberalism (social democracy) but has instead left the world with a mono-polar world that forces its perceived cultural superiority on the rest of the globe. It seeks to dictate its values to the rest of the world but as time goes on it is becoming apparent to everyone that Western liberalism is in the midst of its own crisis. I think Dugin is completely correct on this point. The decline of Western societies into debt ridden, nanny/spy state corporate oligarchies that seek world military and cultural domination should be obvious to anyone not drowning in mainstream news propaganda. It is certainly obvious to much of the rest of the world. Worse, the West stands for no real values and the few it does stand for is at odds with many traditional cultures around the globe. Dugin hopes for a future in which a fourth political philosophy is embraced in which cultures around the world advance at their own pace and develop their own values. I too would like to see such a world, a world of true multiculturalism.
Aleksandr Dugin himself speaking about his book.
The worst disaster ever to befall America happened on Jyckle Island Georgia in 1910. There the secret banking establishment planned what would be become the largest money cartel in the history of the world. Today, not only does this money cartel control United States but every other country’s currency in the world now is forced to use the dollar as it’s reserve currency. This has been the greatest heist of wealth in human history and hardly anyone even notices it or even thinks twice about the money they use. Imagine the mob forcing everyone in Chicago to use it’s own personal mob money that they could personally print of at will. Expand this idea to the whole world and you now have a good idea of how the private for profit Federal Reserve works. I assume that mob money would have famous mob bosses on it instead of presidents but to me that is not much of a difference.
I owe an eternal debt to the Mises Institute for waking me up. They are continuing their crusade of education.
