Hagel’s Military Budget, More Change Than Cut

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 9, 2014

War secretary Chuck Hagel says he wants to cut 40 thousand troops. That has everyone crying the red, white and blues.

According to Ron Paul there will be no overall budget cut. The money just gets shifted elsewhere. Continuing the F-35 disaster for example. The military industrial complex isn’t going cold turkey.

So where is the money going?

Everything about war is changing, from soldier to victim. Read the rest of this entry »

Obamacare On Steroids (Or Is It Acid?)

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 16, 2013

Perhaps you have wondered as I have how regulatory agencies can make regulations.  The Constitution says only Congress can make laws yet the BATF, FCC, IRS ad infinitum create regs.  The stock response I get is the Supreme Court said it was OK.  I can believe that considering the SCOTUS OK’d Obamacare.

Obamacare legislation is so complex one of its primary creators, Pelosi, can’t tell us what is in it.  We are only beginning finding out. Read the rest of this entry »

Speaking of Mike Kelly and Neo-Cons

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 10, 2013

Here is a lengthy but excellent Ron Paul dissertation on neo-cons.  I will let Mr. Paul speak for himself but here is his list of defining characteristics that I cannot resist sharing. Read the rest of this entry »

Ron Paul Defines Foreign Policy Madness

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 7, 2013

Our foreign policy is something less than ideal.  That much should be obvious.

Ron Paul puts it in perspective.

Here is the highlight from Paul’s Institute for Peace 4 July article: Read the rest of this entry »

Milk Price Supports Don’t Have a Leg to Stand On

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 31, 2012

Red Alert! The farm bill is in limbo. Milk prices may go to $8 per gallon. If big brother doesn’t continue to subsidize milk producers they may actually have to charge a realistic price. This will of course reduce sales as the public is used to paying what they think is a good price.

What they THINK is a good price because if you add in the taxpayer supported subsidy plus the cost of storing excess dairy product the government buys from farmers, milk I believe is a really expensive item.

Didn’t I read where Domino’s and Pizza Hut’s stuffs crusts with cheese due to a government (taxpayer subsidized) program  to use up excess cheese? Read the rest of this entry »

The CFR, Why You Should Vote, Become Libertarian and Run for Office

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 4, 2012

You may think you know who runs the government and sets the agenda.  You may even think it is the president or your duly appointed representative.  Not even close.  If you picked the CEO of your bank or David-one world government-Rockefeller you are smarter than the average bear.  This posting gives us a hint on how the Council on Foreign Relations (Hillary’s goto for foreign policy advise), the Ivy League and Skull & Bones runs things.  The CFR, the New World Order’s domestic representative, calls the shots on foreign policy.  They set the limits on what is main stream and what is radical.  The limits are narrow.  The CFR runs the show.  It is time to cancel the program.

Don’t Act “Suspicious” When The Drones Start Flying Over your House

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 25, 2012

I was just reading again today about 18 “suspected” militants killed in a drone attack.  All drone victims are now described as “suspected”.  Can you imagine reading “Joe Smith, suspected criminal, was executed today”.   That is real life in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Read the rest of this entry »

H.R. 4133 – All Bow to Netanyahu

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 17, 2012

The House has passed H.R. 4133, an AIPAC designed, Israel firster dream bill.  Ron Paul and John Dingell are the only reps that voted no in a limited debate, quick vote session.  There must be enough Muslims in Michigan to negate AIPAC.  Hmm… they are not so bad after all!  The bill, in a nutshell, obligates US to keeping the Israel defenses up to date, supplying a $1Billion missile defense system and has language that supports Israel’s membership in NATO.  We are of course obligated to defend fellow NATO members in time of (Iranian) war.  A major reason for the bill no doubt.  Defend Israel by ourselves because the US essentially is NATO.  The other members ran out of ammo playing in the Libyan sandbox.  We are to veto any resolutions, presumably the UN variety, critical of Israel.  The validity of the criticism is apparently irrelevant.  Demand your Senators to kill this.  Mine won’t.  Casey and Toomey are empire builders and not unfamiliar with the taste of Israeli boot leather.  The House once again kneels before President Netanyahu.  No doubt the other 101 lackeys in Washington will also.  See Philip Giraldi here.

Be seeing you

Clash of Political Positions

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 22, 2012

Robert Cogan’s Clash of Political Positions in the current Erie Reader got me to thinking about political tags from a Libertarian viewpoint. Mr. Cogan presents an enlightening comparison of political philosophies, primarily liberal, progressive, conservative and Libertarian. He describes many characteristics of each breed that I agree with. There are many unfortunate similarities also. These groups are not at all what they pretend to be. There are few real conservatives for example, at least not in the paleo-conservative Robert Taft tradition. Read the rest of this entry »

Richard Cohen, like Michael Gerson, Fears Ron Paul

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 7, 2012

I was about to visit Michael Gerson after his last tirade but that would get boring.  Gerson’s obedient regurgitating of the Neo-Con war party dogma gets boring fast.  Richard Cohen came to his rescue last week.  Here.  Cohen makes many accusations and I will try to intelligently respond where I can.

Cohen says RP would have let Nazi Germany take over Europe because he is “isolationist”.  There are some that believe that if the U.S. had not entered WWI there would have been a stalemate.  Read the rest of this entry »
