There They Go Again! Adam Schiff Blames RUSSIA For Biden’s Laptop

by Daniel McAdams Deja vu! Once again those Russians have come through to plant disinformation during a US presidential campaign! This time they are accused of being involved with Biden's son Hunter's laptop. Rep. Adam Schiff claims he's as sure about Russian activity this time as he was sure of Trump collusion with Russia last time. How did that one work out? Also today, White House top Covid advisor Dr. Scott Atlas has his Tweets yanked - more politicization of science? And...the California governor does not want you to sing.

What Is the Purpose of the Fed?

by Robert Aro With all the history, lore and media spotlight the Federal Reserve receives, how many people stopped to ask: What is the Fed’s purpose? According to their website’s FAQs, the Federal Reserve system exists to: provide the nation with a safer, more flexible, and more stable monetary and financial system. It aims to carry this out through free market intervention including: influencing money and credit conditions in the economy in pursuit of full employment and stable prices. While the method of operations may leave some questioning the efficacy of its ability to reach its goals, it’s still much different than what San Francisco Fed president Mary Daly told the Wall Street Journal, in a one-on-one interview on Thursday: If you go back to our foref...

Brutus No. 1: Antifederalist Warning on Consolidation

by Michael Boldin If you’ve been following our work here at the TAC, you’ll often see articles, videos, quotes, posts – about the dangers of centralization of power. In fact, it might be one of the most common themes – both here and from the Founding Generation. That’s why the Constitution itself was very likely to fail ratification until deals were made in places like Massachusetts and elsewhere – that an amendment would be added in the near future to reaffirm the principle that all powers not expressly delegated would remain with the states or the people. That, of course, became the 10th Amendment, which Thomas Jefferson called “the foundation of the Constitution.” Even supporters of ratification regularly acknowledged the dangers of centralization – what they referred to as...
Man DENIED German Citizenship for Refusing to Shake Woman’s Hand

Man DENIED German Citizenship for Refusing to Shake Woman’s Hand

by the DC Patriot Just think if the United States would usher in the same policies against extremism, where would we be, and how better off would we be as a nation? The man aced the German naturalization test, but refused to shake hands with the female official handing over his citizenship. Despite claims he will not shake hands with men either, his citizenship has been rejected. A German court ruled on Friday that a Muslim man who refused to shake the hand of a woman should not receive German citizenship. The 40-year-old Lebanese doctor, who came to Germany in 2002, said he refuses to shake women’s hands for religious reasons. The Administrative Court of Baden-Württemberg (VGH) ruled that someone who rejects a handshake due to a “fundamentalist conception of cult...
Printing Money at a “Constant” or “Stable” Rate Won’t Prevent Boom-Bust Cycles

Printing Money at a “Constant” or “Stable” Rate Won’t Prevent Boom-Bust Cycles

by Frank Shostak According to Milton Friedman, the key cause of the business cycles is the fluctuations in the growth rate of money supply. Friedman held that what is required for the elimination of these cycles is for central bank policymakers to aim at a fixed growth rate of money supply: My choice at the moment would be a legislated rule instructing the monetary authority to achieve a specified rate of growth in the stock of money. For this purpose, I would define the stock of money as including currency outside commercial banks plus all deposits of commercial banks. I would specify that the Reserve System should see to it that the total stock of money so defined rises month by month, and indeed, so far as possible, day by day, at an annual rate of X per cent, where X is some num...

BEN STEIN’S OPINION ON CHRISTMAS NAILS IT!

by the DC Patriot Benjamin Jeremy Stein is an American writer, lawyer, actor, comedian, and commentator on political and economic issues. He began his career as a speechwriter for U.S. presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford before entering the entertainment field as an actor, comedian, and game show host.  Ben may have said it best with this writing: My confession by Ben Stein:  I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish.  And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees.  I don’t feel threatened.  I don’t feel discriminated against.  That’s what they are, Christmas trees.It doesn’t bother me a bit when people say, “Merry Christmas” to me.  I don’t think they are slighting me ...

Socialism, American Style, Part 4

by  Jacob G. Hornberger Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 [to be published] It would be difficult to find a better example of American socialism than the institution of public schooling or, as it might be more accurately termed, government schooling. Public schooling is based on socialist central planning. Whether at a federal, state, or local level, government officials plan, in a top-down, command-and-control manner, the education of millions, thousands, or hundreds of students. Participation in the state’s education system is mandatory. To ensure compliance on the part of parents, the state has enacted what are called compulsory-attendance laws. If parents refuse to subject their children to the state’s system, the state will secure a judicial order from a state ju...

How the Media Has Whitewashed FBI Abuses in the Russia Probe

by Ted Galen Carpenter The mainstream media not only continues to parrot the narrative that President Donald Trump is a Russian asset who collaborated with Moscow to steal the 2016 presidential election, but journalists have also minimized or dismissed evidence about FBI abuses during the course of the investigation into those allegations. One point that emerged clearly when Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz issued his report in December 2019 was that the FBI had committed serious violations of its own procedures and basic requirements of due process. The scope and severity of that misconduct have become even more apparent with the passage of time. Although Horowitz did not endorse the Trump White House’s core allegation...
Has Anyone Noticed That the World’s Billionaires During the Covid Fraud Are Getting Richer While Everyone Else Is Facing Poverty?

Has Anyone Noticed That the World’s Billionaires During the Covid Fraud Are Getting Richer While Everyone Else Is Facing Poverty?

by Gary D. Barnett “In the magical universe there are no coincidences and there are no accidents. nothing happens unless someone wills it to happen” ~ William S. Burroughs During this time of a non-existent ‘virus’ pandemic, world lockdowns, mass business closings, economic failure, growing bankruptcies, panic, and starvation, the rich are laughing all the way to the bank. Coincidence? There is no such thing as coincidence, as everything happens for a reason, and in this case that reason is clear. Everything that is happening today was planned long ago, so the obvious question is why are the richest not affected by any fake virus like the rest of us, and in fact have been able to use this farce to gain massive wealth in a structured time of chaos? The only logical answer to this ...

San Francisco Considering Changing 44 School Names, RENOUNCING Washington, Lincoln & Others

by the DC Patriot We all already know that San Francisco is a liberal hell hole, and it just keeps getting worse. A few months back, Nancy Pelosi went to a salon with no mask and got her hair done, while the owner wasn’t allowed to open. The owner outed her, and of course Pelosi and her followers tried to destroy her. Now this insane city is at it again. This time wanting to rename schools named after our founders, and others. The following is from The San Francisco Chronicle. A third of San Francisco public schools could see their names changed as officials push to replace “inappropriate” ones honoring presidents, writers, generals and even Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
