Of Two Minds – A Radical Critique of Universal Basic Income

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 7, 2017

UBI is the last gasp of a broken, dying system

http://www.oftwominds.com/blogdec17/UBI12-17.html?fullweb=1

Universal Basic Income (UBI) is increasingly being held up as the solution to automation’s displacement of human labor. UBI combines two powerful incentives: self-interest (who couldn’t use an extra $1,000 per month) and an idealistic commitment to guaranteeing everyone material security and reducing the rising income inequality that threatens our social contract–a topic I’ve addressed many times over the past decade.

The Olympics and Jerusalem: Disillusionment confirmed

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 7, 2017

http://theduran.com/the-olympics-and-jerusalem-disillusionment-confirmed/

This week’s two most dramatic events will go down in history as shattering the wishful-thinking illusions that anyone might have still had about the Trump Administration’s policies towards Russia and Israel.

Both candidates represented a promising break from the past and swore to reverse the failed policies of their predecessors, and each were elected out of the desperation that most Americans were feeling at the time, whether real or imagined. They “talked the talk” and said all the “right” things, but once they got into office, they didn’t exactly “walk the walk” that they were supposed to. Obama promised a new era of relations with the Muslim World, while Trump said that he’d do the same vis-à-vis Russia. Read the rest of this entry »

NSA’s McMaster “authorized surveillance of Bannon and Trump family.” Intel sent to George Soros

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 7, 2017

If true, Soros has friends everywhere from the NFL to NSA

Intel gathered was sent to facility owned by George Soros.

Alex Christoforou

The Gateway Pundit reports that a former CIA paramilitary officer and member of the Trump transition team, John R. Maguire, reportedly revealed during a fund raising meeting for an intelligence gathering operation in Afghanistan, that National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster “authorized surveillance of Steven Bannon and Trump family members, including Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.”

Steelers-Bengals brutality a reminder life-altering violence is at NFL’s core

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 6, 2017

More on the National Soros Football League

The debate is not complete until Costas blames NFL violence on guns.

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2017/dec/05/steelers-bengals-game-violence-ryan-shazier-nfl

The body count included a pair of young men carted off on stretchers and still more knocked out with serious injuries. Some were a result of routine plays that embody football’s existential risks, others were the offspring of more sinister intentions. Who can say, as the medics rush the field before a hushed stadium or from the antiseptic fluorescent buzz of a hospital room, which brand of violence is more concerning? Does it even matter?

Russiagate Becomes Israelgate, by Philip Giraldi – The Unz Review

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 6, 2017

The Israeli hand in the US sock puppet.

http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/russiagate-becomes-israelgate/

The first phone call to Kislyak, on December 22nd, was made by Flynn at the direction of Jared Kushner, who in turn had been approached by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu had learned that the Obama Administrating was going to abstain on a United Nations vote condemning the Israeli settlements policy, meaning that for the first time in years a U.N. resolution critical of Israel would pass without drawing a U.S. veto. Kushner, acting for Netanyahu, asked Flynn to contact each delegate from the various countries on the Security Council to delay or kill the resolution. Flynn agreed to do so, which included a call to the Russians. Kislyak took the call but did not agree to veto Security Council Resolution 2334, which passed unanimously on December 23rd.

The second phone call, made by Flynn on December 29th from a beach in the Dominican Republic, where he was on vacation, may have been ordered by Trump himself. It was a response to an Obama move to expel Russian diplomats and close two Embassy buildings over allegations of Moscow’s interfering in the 2016 election. Flynn asked the Russians not to reciprocate, making the point that there would be a new administration in place in three weeks and the relationship between the two countries might change for the better. Kislyak apparently convinced Russian President Vladimir Putin not to go tit-for-tat.

In taking the phone calls from a soon-to-be senior American official who would within weeks be part of a new administration in Washington, the Russians did nothing wrong. It would not be inappropriate to have some conversations with an incoming government team. Apart from holding off on retaliatory sanctions, Kislyak also did nothing that might be regarded as particularly responsive to Team Trump overtures. If it was an attempt to interfere in American politics, it certainly was low-keyed, and one might well describe it positively as a willingness to give the new Trump Administration a chance to improve relations.

The first phone call about Israel was not as benign as the second one about sanctions. Son-in-law Jared Kushner is Trump’s point man on the Middle East. He and his family have extensive ties both to Israel and to Netanyahu personally, to include Netanyahu’s staying at the Kushner family home in New York. The Kushner Family Foundation has funded some of Israel’s illegal settlements and also a number of conservative political groups in that country. Jared has served as a director of that foundation and it is reported that he failed to disclose the relationship when he filled out his background investigation sheet for a security clearance. All of which suggests that if you are looking for possible foreign government collusion with the incoming Trumpsters, look no further.

Stand for liberty with Libertarian Sen. Laura Ebke | Libertarian Party

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 6, 2017

They fear the voice of freedom, just like with Ron Paul in Maine.

https://www.lp.org/stand-for-liberty-with-libertarian-sen-laura-ebke/

Last week, the Nebraska GOP showed its true colors when it attacked the intelligence and the integrity of the voters of Nebraska’s Legislative District 32. In the process, it showed that the most important strategy for the old parties is to prevent discussion and deliberation instead of advancing a principled message.

In an email blast sent to voters in Nebraska’s 32nd district, the Republican politicians desperately attempted to scare people away from a family movie night. A screening of the Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful Life hosted by Libertarian state Sen. Laura Ebke was dishonestly painted by establishment politicians as an “illegal” event.

Independence for Catalonia, Bavaria, Veneto – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 6, 2017

The fake news you learned in government school.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/12/walter-e-williams/independence-hypocrisy/

Catalonia, Bavaria and Veneto are relatively prosperous jurisdictions in their countries. They feel that what they get from the central governments is not worth the taxes they pay. Each wants the central government off its back. They think they could be far more prosperous on their own. That should sound familiar. Some of the motivation for secessionist movements in Europe is similar to the motivation found in the Confederacy’s independence movement of the early 1860s.

Throughout most of our nation’s history, the only sources of federal revenue were excise taxes and tariffs. In the 1830s, the North used its power in Congress to push through massive tariffs to fund the government. During the 1850s, tariffs amounted to 90 percent of federal revenue. The Southern states were primarily producers of agricultural products, which they exported to Europe. In return, they imported manufactured goods. These tariffs fell much harder upon the export-dependent South than they did upon the more insular North. In 1859, Southern ports paid 75 percent of federal tariff revenue. However, the majority of the tariff revenue generated was spent on projects that benefited the North.

Tariffs being a contributing cause of the Civil War is hardly ever mentioned. Using the abolition of slavery as an excuse for a war that took the lives of 620,000 Americans confers greater moral standing for the Union.

NFL Joins Forces With Anti-US, One World UN Government George Soros -And You Are Still Watching The NFL Because…

NFL’s Anthem Surrender Deal Would Send Millions to Soros-Backed Social-Justice Groups

As it turns out, not only did the NFL choose their protesting players over their fans, they George Soros over their fans.

The NFL recently agreed to spend nearly $90 million dollars over the next seven years, to various organizations connected with social justice causes. Several of those groups, have deep connections to billionaire liberal activist George Soros.

The NFL agreement with the players, which includes no requirement that the player protests end, will send cash to Soros-connected groups such as Dream Corps, Center for American Progress, and Campaign for Fair Sentencing. Read the rest of this entry »

Why Is There No ‘Saudi-Gate’? – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 5, 2017

And I thought the Bush Sr phone call in Nov 1963 was suspicious…

http://original.antiwar.com/Branko_Marcetic/2017/12/04/no-saudi-gate/

Imagine if Russia – instead of doing what it has been accused of doing last year – had funded and facilitated an attack on US soil that killed thousands of Americans. Then imagine that US policymakers, rather than punish the Kremlin by cutting diplomatic ties, imposing sanctions, seeking legal recourse, or all of the above, covered up its involvement in the attack and continued to treat it as a loyal ally…

Thankfully, in the real world, none of this applies to Russia. It does, however, perfectly describe Saudi Arabia… Read the rest of this entry »
