Over the last nine months, an army of cops from different police brigades stole $9 million in cash and drugs from locals. I guarantee the price for this army was significantly higher than $9 million. Even if you accept the war on drugs argument on its face, it's a loser. Worse, this army arrested 79 people, transforming them from wealth producers to wealth consumers, further impoverishing us. This is an economic and personal disaster with far greater costs than list here.

More on Bush. It's obviously an orchestrated coming out party. Apparently Bush is Sheldon Adelson's favorite, and therefore probably AIPAC's, favorite. This explains the disconnect. The Israeli lobby probably has no pulse on the American people. The sad thing is, it could come down to Bush versus Clinton, and pretty much nobody would show up.
"Adds Shawn Steel, a big California GOP money man, Sheldon is a “very rational guy.”
Perhaps. But last fall at Yeshiva University, this “very rational guy” gave this response to a question from Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on whether he supports U.S. negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program:
“No. What do you mean support negotiations? What are we going to negotiate about? What I would say is, ‘Listen, you see that desert out there, I want to show you something.’ … You pick up your cell phone and you call somewhere in Nebraska and you say, ‘OK let it go.’
“So, there’s an atomic weapon, goes over ballistic missiles, the middle of the desert, that doesn’t hurt a soul. Maybe a couple of rattlesnakes, and scorpions, or whatever.
“And then you say, ‘See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development.
“‘You want to be peaceful. Just reverse it all, and we will guarantee that you can have a nuclear power plant for electricity purposes, energy purposes.’”
Adelson’s response was recorded by Philip Weiss of Mondoweiss website who was at Yeshiva and filmed the interview. Weiss says the audience cheered Adelson’s proposed nuclear strike on Iran and no one on the stage, not Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens, peeped a word of dissent."
What could go wrong?

Tax and Spend

Aid to Ukraine bad for Americans and Ukrainians.
"This $1 billion for Ukraine is a rip-off for the America taxpayer, but it is also a bad deal for Ukrainians. Not a single needy Ukrainian will see a penny of this money, as it will be used to bail out international banks who hold Ukrainian government debt. According to the terms of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)-designed plan for Ukraine, life is about to get much more difficult for average Ukrainians. The government will freeze some wage increases, significantly raise taxes, and increase energy prices by a considerable margin.
But the bankers will get paid and the IMF will get control over the Ukrainian economy."

DP&L requests a rate hike.
"Dayton Power & Light customers may be on the hook for millions of dollars in extra fees on their monthly electric bills if the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio grants requests that consumer advocates say are related to maneuvering done to minimize the effects of deregulation."
If DP&L has to ask for a rate hike, it's bit deregulated.
"The deregulation law required electric utilities to transition from state regulated monopolies to businesses that vie for customers in a competitive market. The thinking was that competition brings lower prices, which benefits consumers.
However, the switch to a competitive market has taken far longer than initially expected, and OCC is accusing DP&L of purposely causing delays in order to collect more fees."
Well, duh.
"“Basically, DP&L is asking the PUCO to delay its full transition to market until it can make more profit and have its customers pay more. That’s a bad idea for Ohioans.”"
Ordering a company to sell assets isn't deregulation either.

Federal Reserve

Plutocrats attack the Fed over bank stress tests.
"Bank executives and investors lashed out at the Federal Reserve on Thursday, attacking its stress tests as “opaque” after the results battered Citigroup’s share price and rattled banks around the world."
Like "opaque" is the problem. Citigroup can publicize anything about itself it wants. When all these banks demand bailouts, this is going to be another spectacular failure of the Fed.

QE was intended to enrich plutocrats.
"Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher has been a thoughtful dissenter all along on the lunacy of QE and the Fed’s massive bond buying spree. But now he has left nothing to the imagination, admitting that Bernanke’s objective all along was to aggressively levitate the price of financial assets and thereby confer massive windfall gains on the wealthy who own most of them. And all this was done in pursuit of some whacked-out, latter-day Keynesian version of “trickle down” economics, which, according to Bubbles Ben, was for the good of the average American—even if they didn’t appreciate it, comprehend it, demand it, or vote for it."
I don't believe he thought it was good for average Americans. This creates the income inequality everybody complains about.


The so-called media shield law is really a government licensing scheme for journalists. Freedom of the press means anybody is free to be the press.


More and more people are arguing we live in a post-scarcity world. We don't.
"Understand something at the very beginning: to say that something is “no longer subject to market forces” is to say that the good in question is non-scarce, or free. That means that every (or nearly every) factor used in producing that good also is non-scarce, and that the full costs to the consumers using such goods also are zero. All I can say is that this contention is an absurdity. "
Yes it is.
"It is true that the advent of low marginal costs has forced new ways of retailing, but economic progress always has done that. For example, a generation ago, Wal-Mart was able to seize huge chunks of market share because the company had developed a distribution and retail strategy that made it a much lower-cost producer than were the other retailers, including Sears, J.C. Penny, and K-Mart. That does not mean markets have disappeared or are no longer relevant; likewise, Wal-Mart now finds itself under pressure from other retailers as well as the internet. Markets still prevail, but in different forms. "
But the people in power and at the top of the economic ladder want to be there forever, so they hate change, and they use government to keep things from changing.

I find it hard to believe that 26 percent of all car crashes involve cell phone use.
"The National Safety Council's annual report found 26 percent of all crashes are tied to phone use, but noted just 5 percent involved texting. Safety advocates are lobbying now for a total ban on driver phone use, pointing to studies that headsets do not reduce drive distraction."
I bet stats don't show a rise in crashes as cell phones became more common. I think this is typical subterfuge.

Health Care

According to the CDC, pretty much every child, OK, 1 in 68, has autism. As they keep lowering the standards to scare people and justify their existence, it'll be every child in five years.
"The incidence of autism ranged from a low of 1 in 175 children in Alabama to a high of 1 in 45 in New Jersey, according to the CDC.
Children with autism continue to be overwhelmingly male. According to the new report, the CDC estimates 1 in 42 boys have autism, 4.5 times as many as girls (1 in 189)."
If a boy acts like a normal boy, he has autism or ADHD. He's only healthy if he acts like a girl.

Obamacare program enrolling  people at Mexican consulates.
"“Whether they’re Mexican nationals or whether they’re United States citizens or whether they’re in transition-- and if they’re there it is our responsibility within all of America to educate on the Affordable Care Act,” Enroll America Field Organizer Jose Medrano told Breitbart News on Wednesday."
No, it's not.

Doctors believe will test suspending dying people in death by replacing blood with cold saline, then replacing the warm blood to bring them back to life.

Study claims exposure to cell towers affects brain.
"Exposure to cell phone towers alters brain function in alarming ways, causing a lack of concentration, irritability, difficulty sleeping and lack of appetite. That's the conclusion of a new study just published by the British Medical Journal.(1)

The study, authored by Professor Enrique A Navarro, concluded that the severity of such symptoms directly correlated to cell tower exposure levels. In other words, the closer a person lives to a cell tower, the greater the severity of their symptoms. This was true regardless of race, income level and other demographics."
This doesn't surprise me. We talked about it decades ago. But I doubt the effects are pronounced as this article wants us to believe. Power lines probably do the same thing, especially high voltage lines. Light pollution affects brains.

Taxpayer-funded IMF announces $14-$18 billion bailout of Ukraine's coupmeisters with governments to pony up another $10 billion. This is mostly a bailout of banks.
"The money will go to the lenders, which include banks, mainly in Europe, and other investors in Ukraine’s bonds. This will not stem Ukraine’s economic decline. The IMF’s price includes higher taxes, which will make it worse."
We get poorer.
"One of the more amazing things about the world at present is that the major robberies accomplished by its states are done right out in the open and celebrated. Furthermore, institutions like the IMF that fail time and again, even report their failures in great detail before repeating them anew. For example, the IMF has a 51-page report explaining its failures in its Greek loan program."

War on second-hand smoke.
"By the way, to reach its secondhand smoke conclusions, the Environmental Protection Agency employed statistical techniques that were grossly dishonest. Some years ago, I had the opportunity to ask a Food and Drug Administration official whether his agency would accept pharmaceutical companies using similar statistical techniques in their drug approval procedures. He just looked at me."
"The late H.L. Mencken’s description of health care professionals in his day is just as appropriate today: “A certain section of medical opinion, in late years, has succumbed to the messianic delusion. Its spokesmen are not content to deal with the patients who come to them for advice; they conceive it to be their duty to force their advice upon everyone, including especially those who don’t want it. That duty is purely imaginary. It is born of vanity, not of public spirit. The impulse behind it is not altruism, but a mere yearning to run things.”"
No kidding.

"An FBI member of the JTTF interviewed Tsarnaev in person. The FBI did not conduct surveillance of Tsarnaev because the case did not rise to the standard that permits surveillance, according to federal officials."
What a travesty.
"Nearly two years later, after the Boston Marathon bombings, authorities interviewed an associate of Tsarnaev’s named Ibragim Todashev about the Waltham murders. The FBI shot and killed Todashev during the interview when he allegedly attacked an agent. The FBI, which has been cleared of wrongdoing by state authorities and an internal review, says Todashev was about to sign a statement implicating both himself and Tsarnaev in the murders when he was killed."
Another travesty. I like how they pretend they could only stop him if he boarded an airplane.

If there is one central truth about the US-Russian relationship it is that it is better to have a friendly Russia cooperating on issues like Iran and Syria than it is to have a hostile Russia that will use its considerable resources to obstruct Washington’s initiatives. Unfortunately no one inside the beltway seems to understand that."

Russia officially annexes Crimea. That sounds like a good thing since the Russian people and the Crimean people both wanted it. Apparently this gives Russia access to Black Sea oil and gas, but Russia already had access to the Black Sea, and Ukraine still has access to the Black Sea.

War on Drugs

How the war on drugs contributed to Philip Seymour Hoffman's death and the deaths of so many others.
"The first is that owning, selling, and buying heroin is prohibited by the state and such activities carry heavy penalties. This causes a multitude of distortions in its production, distribution, and consumption. For the economist then, heroin is not in its normal state. "
"Another implication is that prohibition is not effective. North Korea can conceal its own failures, but open societies cannot. Prohibition might discourage some potential consumers, but would those same consumers commit harm to themselves or others in the absence of prohibition? Most would not. In other words, while the drug war forces addicts and casual users to rely on unlabeled, black market (and possibly tampered-with) products for their fix, would drug users in a free market turn to such dangerous products? It’s unlikely. We do know that in the face of prohibition, many users turn to using alcohol and prescription drugs for off-label recreational uses that can cause harm that is similar or even worse than those caused by prohibited drugs.
There is simply no evidence that prohibition generates any socially desirable benefits, but there is ample evidence of its costs and destruction."

Fed to keep rates low even after economy recovers, which it never will.
"But what stood out in the central bank's statement was its embrace of easy money policies even after the Fed achieves its goals of full employment and 2 percent inflation."
It will never reach those goals if it keeps printing money.
"U.S. stock prices fell after the statement was released, while yields on U.S. government debt rose."
 Usually when the Fed promises to keep rates low, stocks rise.
"The central bank also proceeded with its well-telegraphed reductions to its massive bond-buying stimulus, announcing it would cut its monthly purchases of U.S. Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities to $55 billion from $65 billion."
That explains it. I wonder if it added $10 billion of something else like mortgage-backed securities.
"The decision to continue to scale back its stimulus keeps the Fed on track for the measured wind down laid out by Yellen's predecessor, Ben Bernanke. The Fed repeated that it plans to continue trimming the asset purchases in "measured steps" as long as labor conditions continue to improve and inflation shows signs of rising back toward the Fed's 2-percent goal."
It looks like no. It may have cut purchases back to $65 billion. This seems like a mixed message. That would also explain the stock and Treasury moves.
"The Fed has kept overnight rates near zero since December 2008 and has bought more than $3 trillion in long-term debt to keep borrowing costs down and spur investment and hiring."
And yet, or because of this, the economy stinks.

Thanks to a cover-up by government and its corporate agents, the biggest industrial accident in US history is a secret.
"The biggest industrial disaster in American history actually happened in 2008, when more than a billion gallons of coal sludge ran through the small town of Kingston, Tennessee. This story details how, five years later, nothing has been done to stop it happening again, thanks to energy industry lobbying, federal inaction, and secrecy imposed on Congress. 'It estimated that 140,000 pounds of arsenic had spilled into the Emory River, as well as huge quantities of mercury, aluminum and selenium. In fact, the single spill in Kingston released more chromium, lead, manganese, and nickel into the environment than the entire U.S. power industry spilled in 2007. ... Kingston, though, is by far the worst coal ash disaster that the industry has ever seen: 5.4 million cubic yards of coal ash, containing at least 10 known toxins, were spilled."

Health insurance premiums since Obamacare rising faster than previous eight years combined. That's because Obamacare was designed to loot us.
"The individual market for health insurance has seen premiums rise by 39 percent since February 2013, eHealth reports. Without a subsidy, the average individual premium is now $274 a month. Families have been hit even harder with an average increase of 56 percent over the same period — average premiums are now $663 per family, over $426 last year."

The supposedly good but still dismal February job numbers were actually bad.
"Although it is often overlooked, a key statistic for understanding the labor market is the length of the average workweek. Small changes in the average workweek imply large changes in total hours worked. The average workweek in the U.S. has fallen to 34.2 hours in February from 34.5 hours in September 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That decline, coupled with mediocre job creation, implies that the total hours of employment have decreased over the period."

Inflation doesn't produce economic growth.
"Contrary to Evans a strengthening in monetary pumping to lift the rate of price inflation will only deepen economic impoverishment by allowing the emergence of new bubble activities and by the strengthening of existing bubble activities.
It will increase the pace of the wealth diversion from wealth generators to various non-productive activities, thereby weakening the process of wealth generation."
All economic activities, and therefore all jobs, are not created equal.

Malaysia and the US are hiding information about flight 370.

Somebody else wonder this:
"As search teams continue scanning the waves for signs of debris, these online truth-seekers should be asking a different question: why couldn’t the plane itself tell us exactly what happened when it went off-radar?"
Because of socialism.
"The ongoing mystery of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is the fault of a bizarre quirk in our networked society. Even cars have broadband connectivity now, but the modern jet airliner – perhaps our most technologically evolved mode of transport – still exists in the age of radio.
Air traffic controllers today must orchestrate the most congested airspace using primarily voice commands. You can send and receive text messages from most aircraft, surf the web and even stream House of Cards. The system that powers the plane is limited to pre-dial-up internet connection speeds.
There is simply no datalink onboard an aircraft with the bandwidth to continuously stream the volumes of data collected and stored during every second of a flight by the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder."
Because of socialism.
"A recent patent application filed by Boeing describes such a system, which specifies a limited data set including the precise location of the aircraft and the flight control inputs by the pilot or the automation system.There will be costs to mandating such a system, but the benefits are clear."
There's no need to mandate it. Just get government out of the way and entrepreneurs will implement this and more improvements we can't predict right now.

"The Afghan president has come under heavy pressure to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement, with a council of notables that he himself convened recommend that he sign the pact.

Bad news for Americans.

The way western leaders are so up in arms about Russian potentially, almost certainly, taking back control of Crimea, it seems like one of the strategic goals of fomenting the coup was to deny Russia a naval base in the Black Sea.

It seems I'm right.
"One of the keys may be found by looking back at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard in which he wrote, “Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire.”
“However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.”
The former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981 and top foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama, Brzezinski wrote that US policy should be “unapologetic” in perpetuating “America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer still.”"
This might be the major motivation. Still, I wonder about some of it. How does losing Ukraine make Russian not a Eurasian empire? Russia borders the Black Sea, so while its fleet is in Crimea now, they could build a Black Sea naval base in Russia.
