SNL Cast Member Got a Hillary Clinton Tattoo on His Leg


“Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson recently unveiled a new tattoo to his Instagram followers. The 24-year-old comedian posted a picture Friday of a tattoo on his leg of Hillary Clinton.

 Davidson earlier this year announced:
I quit drugs and am happy and sober for the first time in 8 years.
I am not sure what Davidson thought Clinton was doing that was so heroic while he was stoned but drugs are just about the only way you could think of Hillary as a hero.

On the other hand, maybe Davidson is experiencing revulsion at the Trump presidency and is being driven, like many millennials, into the arms of Hillary and even worse socialists.

They just don't get that Trump and socialism are not the only two alternatives. More libertarians need to aggressively speak up against the many non-libertarian actions taken up by Trump so that there are more opportunities for millennials to become aware that Hillary and the socialists are not the only alternatives.

Telling Jokes is Sexual Harassment?



An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews' employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment by Matthews, reports The Daily Caller.

Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment.

The nature of the sexual "harassment"? Get this.

David Gordon, The Sparkling Revisionist



Paul Gottfried writes:

I recently ordered and am now eagerly devouring the anthology of David Gordon’s reviews and essays [the three volume] An Austro-Libertarian View published by the Mises Institute. Gordon belongs in more than one way to the institute that brought out this volume. Indeed in his Foreword he lets the reader know that when he first read Man, Economy and the State in 1962, he became a “convinced Rothbardian,” and “it is from this standpoint that I have written my articles.” This may understate the relation described. David was a close friend as well as disciple of Murray, who returned David’s admiration by describing him as a “universal genius unequalled in my experience.” ...

Like Murray Rothbard, he prefers those who make coherent arguments to those who play to the crowd. He also prefers those who are true to themselves as opposed to those who seek social acceptance...

David is one of the very few reviewers whose writings I can read with profit years after they were first printed. One learns from him new things every time one looks at his reviews about books one has read or at least glanced at. This I find is especially true about authors who never bowled me over but whose defects I had been insufficiently aware of before I consulted David...

Former Top FBI Official Nukes Peter Strzok: “He Belongs in Leavenworth. He Belongs Behind Bars.”

There is a civil war in the FBI between the pro-Trump New York office and the anti-Trump Washington D.C. headquarters. It is getting vicious.

In the 2016 presidential election, Kallstrom openly supported Donald Trump and has referred to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton family as being criminal-like.

Wayne Barrett has written about what he sees as an alliance between Kallstrom, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and pro-Trump supporters in the FBI

Koch Brothers Invest in Israeli Startup


For the record.

Charles and David Koch are making their first investment in Israel.

Koch Disruptive Technologies, a subsidiary of the brothers’ Koch Industries, led a group of investors putting an initial $75 million into the Israeli startup Insightec.

Haifa-based Insightec makes non-invasive surgical devices using ultrasound.

According to Haaretz ,Insightec’s Exablate Neuro is the first focused ultrasound device approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat an essential tremor when it doesn’t respond to medication. Clinical research with the company’s technology has successfully disrupted the blood-brain barrier, which could lead to targeted drug delivery to treat Alzheimer’s disease and brain tumors.

'Security Robot of the Future' That Rousted San Francisco Homeless Shut Down


 A San Francisco animal adoption agency will immediately halt its recent use of a security robot.

The San Francisco SPCA had deployed a Knightscope K9 robot to help prevent vandalism and the presence of homeless people at its Mission District office.

But the violent anti-private property crowd has won and the homeless, filth and vandalism will remain.

Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, president of San Francisco's SPCA, said the following in a statement sent to Ars on Thursday morning:
Although we had already limited the use of the robot to our parking lot, we think a more fully informed, consensus-oriented, local approach on the appropriate use of these new devices will benefit everyone—whether it's on public space or in private parking lots... We welcome guidance from the city on policies for the use of autonomous security robots. Since this story has gone viral, we've received hundreds of messages inciting violence and vandalism against our facility and encouraging people to take retribution. In addition, we've already experienced two acts of vandalism on our campus.

George Soros Getting Young Blood Pumped Into His Veins


Following my post reporting on speculation that Henry Kissinger may be getting young blood pumped into his veins, a person in a position to know things about George Soros (87), has contacted me and tells me that Soros is getting young blood transfusions.

As I reported in my original post, experiments with laboratory mice show that young mouse blood pumped into elderly mice rejuvenates the elderly mice.

Experiments on humans in this field are heating up in Silicon Valley.

Get Well, Lew!


Mises Institute president Jeff Deist has put out an update on the recovery of Lew Rockwell from a recent back injury.

Lew is, in my book, the most important libertarian entrepreneur of the current era. Austrian economics, libertarianism, Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard would

General Kelly Just Fired a Person Ranked Two Intersectionallity Levels Above Him



On Wednesday, the White House Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison, Omarosa Manigault, was fired by President Trump's chief-of-staff, General John F. Kelly.

This does not register as a sharp move by the General.

Omarosa ranks two intersectionality levels above him and she once

Who Really Benefited From the Doug Jones Win in Alabama

Charles Barkley
Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday defeated the extremely weak (and weird) Republican candidate Roy Moore, in the generally very heavily Republican voting state of Alabama.

Jones is the first Democrat elected as a US Senator in the state in 25 years.

The big individual winner is the former NBA superstar Charles Barkley. He campaigned heavily in Alabama and from my computer screen, it appears that he was the key driver behind a strong turnout by black voters.

Expect the Democrats should use him across the country throughout 2018 to energize the black vote in the mid-terms.

And he was just a couple of people away from Jones when Jones delivered his victory speech. He sure looked like he wanted to be the one delivering a victory speech.

I expect that at some point in the future Barkley will announce he is running for some public office. His views are unclear, I have heard him make some sound points in the past but on Tuesday he sounded like quite the lefty. And it should never be forgotten that he claimed that in his autobiography, I May Be Wrong but I Doubt It, he was misquoted,

The Democratic party was also a big winner. The victory will energize the base into thinking that more victories are ahead. An energized base with Barkley driving the black vote will be big going into the midterms. And then you have the kids, the millennials, all turning socialist. Not good for liberty.

The Republican establishment also got a boost. The scruffy out-of-work homeless-looking guy and President Trump were the big losers. They couldn't deliver in a heavily Republican state and will be labeled in 2018 as backing an alleged perv. Though the Democrats will most assuredly drop off the adjective "alleged." Everyone, including lots of Republicans, are going to distance themselves from the diet coke-chugging, cable news channel watching, street hustler in the White House.

And so, 2018 looks very good for Democrats and socialists of all stripes as we live the "Libertarians for Trump" dream of Trump in the White House

India Minister of Happiness Wanted for Murder


Indian police have launched a manhunt for the country’s “happiness minister” after the state politician vanished when a court ordered his arrest over an alleged murder, reports The Guardian.

Lal Singh Arya, whose mandate is to put a smile on the faces of his 70 million constituents, is wanted in connection with the death of an opposition politician in 2009.

The happiness ministry is modeled on the “gross national happiness” index used by India’s northerly neighbor Bhutan.
