Misunderstanding Both Lincoln and Basic Economics

By David Gordon

February 24, 2024

Our Ancient Faith: Lincoln, Democracy, and the American Experiment
by Allen C. Guelzo
Alfred A. Knopf, 2024; 247 pp.

Allen Guelzo has been carried away by Abraham Lincoln's magniloquent rhetoric. Guelzo, a historian who has written a number of books about Lincoln, would like very much to believe that his hero was a champion of individual rights and economic freedom.

Guess Where Historians Rank Trump

By Tom Woods

February 24, 2024

From the Tom Woods Letter:

The New York Times just ran this headline:

"Poll Ranks Biden as 14th Best President, with Trump Last."

Oh, really? Trump last, huh? What a surprise!

(I guess the silver lining here is that now they have to admit, at least comparatively, that Grover Cleveland and Franklin Pierce had at least some merits.)

These rankings of the presidents by historians are worthless and stupid.

The Awesome Punching Power of Thomas Paine

By George F. Smith

February 24, 2024

Most public school graduates have heard that Thomas Paine wrote something that convinced the colonies to declare their independence - though if they're older than 21 their memory probably needs jogging. A few can even name what he wrote: Common Sense. And some can even incorrectly attribute a famous line to that pamphlet - These are the times that try men's souls.

The Dark and the Light

By James Howard Kunstler

February 24, 2024

"'The rule of law is under threat!' the Regime shrieks, as it throws its political foes into the gulag - Benjamin Weingarten

The florid carbuncle of Woke-Maoist lawfare weeps its vile effluvium across the social landscape, poisoning whatever it touches, and nothing in the armory of reason, principle, or good faith avails to heal it. Sickness rages through the body politic.

Politics Has Become Pro Wrestling-- Literally

By David Gornoski

The American Conservative

February 23, 2024

The Bible says Cain killed his brother Abel and then founded the first city. Today, WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Kane never killed his in-ring partner and half-brother the Undertaker-you cannot kill the dead-but he did go on to establish model leadership in Knox County, Tennessee. I recently spoke with Knox's Mayor Glenn Jacobs-the retired Kane-to see how he has navigated his transition from wrestling to politics and his fight for liberty at the local level.

Les mensonges de Biden et des médias américains sur l'Ukraine rappellent la guerre du Vietnam - American Conservative

Par Ahmed Adel

L'American Conservative a publié un article qui met en parallèle la guerre du Vietnam, considérée comme la plus grande humiliation militaire de l'histoire des États-Unis, avec ce qu'il considère comme une campagne de tromperie menée par l'actuel gouvernement américain, qui conduira à une défaite de Kiev et de l'OTAN.

Selon l'auteur James W. Carden, qui a été conseiller pour les affaires américano-russes au département d'État pendant l'administration Obama, la campagne médiatique concernant l'Ukraine menée par la Maison Blanche est une copie des actions des gouvernements américains successifs au Viêt Nam jusqu'à ce que l'administration Nixon retire ses troupes et mette fin à l'intervention en 1973.

Trampling on a Symbol of Liberty

By James Bovard

The Future of Freedom Foundation

February 23, 2024

Last August, 12-year-old Jaiden Rodriguez was kicked out of a public-school classroom in Colorado Springs after school officials decreed that the Gadsden flag patch on his backpack was "disruptive to the classroom environment." Those Colorado officials didn't know the meaning of "disruptive."

Thanks to savvy, thoughtful retorts by Jaiden's mother in a video showdown at the school, the incident spurred a fierce backlash around America.

What We Are Witnessing in the Democrats' Administration of Justice Is Totally Corrupt Weaponized Law Used As a Weapon

By Paul Craig Roberts

February 23, 2024

The Democrats appear to be the New Stalinist Party. My conclusion is based on how they abuse law. President Trump has suffered eight years of legal abuse from Democrats and their corrupt prosecutors and judges.

It began with Russiagate led by the CIA, Justice (sic) Department, and FBI. It was a total orchestration long since disproved.

Democracy (Not) in America

Some thoughts on the U.S. political system


Early in the 19th century, Alexis De Tocqueville famously wrote "Democracy in America." Early in the 21st century, that title is more appropriate for a fictional or even fantasy work on America.

How so? A BV reader sent along an article from the American Prospect: "America is not a democracy," by David Dayen. Based on that article and a few reflections of my own, here's how and why democracy is dead in the USA:

Migrant Crisis and the States Increasingly Defying the Feds

By Doug Casey

International Man

February 22, 2024

International Man: During his presidency, Joe Biden implemented an open border policy with thousands of migrants entering the US daily.

The number of migrants that have entered the US illegally since Biden took office is easily in the millions. The invasion has put immense pressure on frontline states.

Where do you think this trend is headed?

Affirmative Action for Intellectual Diversity?

By Walter E. Block

Minding the Campus

February 22, 2024

Give credit where credit is due. The campus lefties are now whining, and they are doing an excellent job of it. Nay, superlative.

What is the complaint? It is that elected state officials, governors, and legislators are sticking their snouts where they do not belong. Namely, they have the audacity to dictate what should and should not be taught at colleges and universities and how they should be run.

L'ambassadeur des États-Unis en Urss, Jack Matlock, révèle la doctrine d'hégémonie des Usa

par Études sur la Neutralité

Les États-Unis ont «hérité» de la Doctrine Brejnev, déclare le dernier ambassadeur américain en Union soviétique, Jack Matlock. En tant que l'un des hommes qui ont négocié la fin de la Guerre froide, l'ambassadeur Matlock parle dans une interview franche de la manière dont les États-Unis ont utilisé systématiquement et sans remords des opérations de changement de régime depuis que l'URSS a officiellement cessé de le faire et comment les motivations pour ces changements sont, comme elles l'étaient pour l'URSS, une question d'idéologie.

Faith Leaders Have a Lack of Faith

By Laurence M. Vance

February 21, 2024

The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers weren't the only winners and losers on Super Bowl Sunday. According to online gaming industry news site Legal Sports Report, Americans were expected to bet $1.3 billion on the Super Bowl.

Thanks to a Supreme Court ruling in 2018 that struck down a federal law prohibiting sports gambling in most states, betting on sports is now legal in thirty-eight states.

Federalism Fixes This

By El Gato Malo
Bad Cattitude

February 21, 2024

The genius of the free market lies in harnessing the power of consumer sovereignty. free people make free choices and these choices provide the information, distilled into simple salients like "demand level" and "price," that informs every producer in the world what to make and how to make it. this emergent data determines the trade offs faced in production and consumption and perhaps more importantly, it makes these trade offs visible and measurable so that those seeking to serve the market can see and understand what the market's participants truly want and truly value.

The Ever Expanding War

By Paul Craig Roberts

February 21, 2024

As I previously wrote, the Israeli/American intention is to expand the war against Hamas to Lebanon, Syria, and Iran. The expansion has begun. The latest news is that Israel has struck deep into Lebanon: "War Expands With Massive Israeli Airstrikes 60km Deep Into Lebanon," See here.

The Arabs, likely restrained by Putin, have once again sat on their butts while Israel picks them off one by one.

A Política Externa norte-americana parece não ter para onde ir

Assim como os palestinos, enjaulados

Nos últimos quatro meses, realizei a minha análise matinal diária dos principais sites de notícias on-line, cada vez mais preocupado com o que eu veria, dada a relutância da grande mídia em reportar honestamente e a gestão persistente, por parte das máquinas de propaganda do governo, do que é vazado para os jornalistas.

What caused the deep divisions in the country? Where are they headed? Global Times has invited scholars from both China and the US to explore the issue. This is the first article of the series.

Spineless Biden's Empty Words in a Dangerous World

By Charles HURT

Turns out, as foreign policy goes, "Don't" does not actually work.

Asked about his strategy for confronting Hamas in the aftermath of the Oct. 7 terrorist attack on Israel, President Biden told CBS' 60 Minutes he had just one word for the blood-thirsty savages: Don't.

Hamas terrorists in Gaza stopped raping Israeli girls and murdering innocent hostages long enough to laugh at Mr.

Protect the First Amendment: Impeach Joe Biden!

By Ron Paul, MD

The Ron Paul Institute

February 20, 2024

Protecting democracy and the Constitution from Donald Trump and the "MAGA extremists" is a major theme of President Biden's reelection campaign. As is often the case in American politics, President Biden is just as, if not more, guilty of posing an "existential threat" to the Constitution as those he smears as "extremists." For example, President Biden and members of his administration have waged a campaign to undermine the First Amendment by "encouraging" companies to suppress the expression of "unapproved" views online.
