Thank You, Hillary Clinton!

Hillary is not very bright.

She lost the 2016 election all on her own and now she is giving fuel to the Tulsi Gabbard campaign for absolutely no reason.

VIDEO: Strong Tulsi Gabbard Reaction on The Tucker Carlson Show to Hillary Clinton Accusing Her of Being a Russian Asset

Note: This is the first time I have noticed her specifically calling out Democrats, Republicans and LIBERTARIANS to join her.

She may have mentioned libertarians in the past but this is the first time I have heard her do so.

HOT Tulsi Gabbard Responds to Hillary Clinton's Claim She is Being Groomed By Russia



In response to a claim by Hillary Clinton that Tulsi Gabbard is being groomed by Russia, Gabbard has responded in a series of tweets challenging Hillary to enter the race:

Hillary Goes Crazed Conspiracy Theory: Says Tulsi Gabbard is Being Groomed by Russians

Speaking with former Obama 2008 campaign manager David Plouffe on his podcast, "Campaign HQ with David Plouffe," Hillary Clinton said - without mentioning Gabbard by name: "I'm not making any predictions but I think they've got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She's the favorite of the Russians."

Of course, that's "assuming Jill Stein will give it up - because she's also a Russian asset," Clinton continued.

Mark Zuckerberg at Georgetown Acted Like a Caged Animal

Mark Zuckerberg 
By Robert Wenzel

Reading from presidential-style prompters, Mark Zuckerberg delivered a speech at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. on Thursday afternoon.

It was obvious by the end of his speech that the reason for the speech was to ward off attacks from Elizabeth Warren who has been calling on him to block certain Donald Trump ads where she says he lied about her.

"The Trump campaign is currently spending $1 million a *week* on ads including ones containing known lies — ads that TV stations refuse to air because they’re false," Warren has tweeted. "Facebook just takes the cash, no questions asked."

"Facebook already helped elect Donald Trump once through negligence," she continued. "Now, they've changed their policy so they can profit from lies to the American people. It's time to hold Mark Zuckerberg accountable."

Zuckerberg's response was to act like a caged animal.

Trump The Choir Boy, Part 2: Nancy Pelosi's Feelings Were Hurt

Steny Hoyer, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer
By Robert Wenzel

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer visited President Trump at the White House on Wednesday ostensibly to talk about Syria.

Trump tried to talk policy. He mentioned the letter that he sent to the president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

But Pelosi was there to toss a stink bomb. She told the president that the House had just voted 354-60 in a favor of a resolution condemning his decision to pull troops from northern Syria.

Schumer gave the stink bomb extra lift. "The fact that someone no less than General Mattis has said that ISIS has been enhanced, that the danger of ISIS is so much greater, worries all of us,” he told the president.

Step Right Up: The Democrats Did Ohio


By Robert Wenzel

Twelve Democratic Party presidential candidates took the stage Tuesday night at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio.

The takeaway: The contest to run the advance of American totalitarianism is a lot like watching a contest between carnival barkers trying to get you to spend time (and money) at their sideshow.

The Power-Hungry Elizabeth Warren Just Launched a Mark Zuckerberg Attack Ad

Facebook does not fact check political ads on its site. This is its policy.

This is a wise move. If the social media giant got into the business of censoring some ads based on "facts," it would be a nightmare.

Facebook would be attacked from all sides for favoring one ad over another. The best thing to do is to let all the ads run and let political commentators, and other observers, comment on the truthfulness and accuracy of various ads.

But Elizabeth Warren will have none of it. She wants censorship and she wants it now.

Beware of Street Revolutions (Hong Kong Edition)


Unless a street revolution has at its core a desire for greater free markets and liberty, reject it.

 Thomas Luongo reports on the unrest in Hong Kong:

Spain’s Catalan Separatist Leaders Found Guilty of Sedition

Spain’s highest court sentenced nine Catalan separatist leaders to between nine and 13 years in jail for their role in an illegal independence referendum, reports The Wall Street Journal.

I have never been a big fan of getting thrown in jail as a means of political protest. Murray Rothbard and Ludwig von Mises never ended up in jail and they have probably done more in recent decades to advance libertarian thinking than almost anyone else.

We're In a Permanent Coup

By Matt Taibbi

I’ve lived through a few coups. They’re insane, random, and terrifying, like watching sports, except your political future depends on the score.

The kickoff begins when a key official decides to buck the executive. From that moment, government becomes a high-speed head-counting exercise. Who’s got the power plant, the airport, the police in the capital? How many department chiefs are answering their phones? Who’s writing tonight’s newscast?

When the KGB in 1991 tried to reassume control of the crumbling Soviet Union by placing Mikhail Gorbachev under arrest and attempting to seize Moscow, logistics ruled. Boris Yeltsin’s crew drove to the Russian White House in ordinary cars, beating KGB coup plotters who were trying to reach the seat of Russian government in armored vehicles. A key moment came when one of Yeltsin’s men, Alexander Rutskoi – who two years later would himself lead a coup against Yeltsin – prevailed upon a Major in a tank unit to defy KGB orders and turn on the “criminals.”

We have long been spared this madness in America. Our head-counting ceremony was Election Day. We did it once every four years.

That’s all over, in the Trump era.

Elizabeth Warren’s Dangerous Lie

By John Samples
Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign has a new Facebook ad claiming Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, has endorsed Donald Trump for re-election. That claim is false, and Warren admits as much in the ad. Warren is not trying to mislead people about Zuckerberg. She is trying to control what can be said on Facebook. That is much more dangerous than any lie appearing in a campaign ad.

The Dangerous Mass Lunacy of Social Justice

This is an important interview by The New American’s Alex Newman of Michael Rectenwald, author of Springtime for Snowflakes: 'Social Justice' and Its Postmodern Parentage.

It will scare you to death.

Particularly valuable in the interview is Rectenwald's observations about the similarities between the social justice movement and Mao's vicious cultural revolution. I have also touched on this point, see, for example, Is Mizzou the Start of a New Mao 'Cultural Revolution' Long March Toward Violence Against Hated Classes?

Also, his warning about the infiltration of social justice into public schools is a very important reason why schooling should be moved to the private sector where alternatives would certainly develop.

New York Times Hit Job On Tulsi Gabbard

Tulsi Gabbard
By Robert Wenzel

I am only a lukewarm supporter of Tulsi Gabbard but a new New York Times hit piece on her is way out of line.

I am told that Gabbard is not surprised by the hit.

In a piece titled, What, Exactly, Is Tulsi Gabbard Up To?, NYT tries to paint her as attracting nothing but fringe support. (Naturally, they take a swipe at Ron Paul for good measure and identify him as part of the fringe):
