F.A. Hayek on Gates, Fauci, and All Central Planners Like Them

undefined

One striking characteristic of the two most important contributors to the creation of Soviet America created by the hysterical panic over the latest cold virus — Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci — is their nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude toward the tens of millions of Americans whose jobs and paychecks have been eliminated, their businesses ruined and gone forever, their savings decimated, and their imprisonment under mass house arrest, watched over by snotty, arrogant, local cops who suffer disproportionately from little-man syndrome. 

Gates, Fauci, the “public health establishment,” and the barking chorus professional liars in the “media” went berserk when President Trump stated the obvious — that life is full of tradeoffs, and that an economic depression may well cause more death and destruction of life than any cold virus can. We don’t want “the cure to be worse than the disease,” he said.

The great Nobel prize-winning Austrian School of Economics economist F.A. Hayek put his finger on the government-planning mentality of people like Gates and Fauci in his 1944 book,The Road to Serfdom, one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. On page 55 Hayek wrote...

The President Who Was Expelled from His Own Party

undefined

In his book Recarving Rushmore: Ranking the Presidents on Peace, Prosperity, and Liberty, Ivan Eland ranked John Tyler as the best American president of all time. (The Marxist Left that dominates the American academic history profession usually ranks him near the bottom). Eland’s ranking is so at odds with the hard-Left history profession because their criteria give higher scores to presidents who spend and tax the most, consolidate the most power in Washington, D.C., oppress civil liberties the most, centrally plan the economy the most, and are the most belligerent in foreign wars. Hence, Lincoln, FDR, and Wilson have long been at the top of their ratings (although Wilson is recently out of favor after the historians finally acknowledged that he re-segregated the US military).

The American history profession sneers at John Tyler and calls him “the accidental president.” They do this because of how he became president: He was William Henry Harrison’s vice president, and when Harrison died of pneumonia one month after taking office Tyler ascended to the office.

John Tyler was a Virginia statesman who strongly opposed Andrew Jackson’s attempt to enforce the “tariff of abominations” on South Carolina, among other things. Because of his dislike of Jackson he left the Democratic Party and joined the Whig Party which at that time was controlled with an iron fist by Henry Clay. In the 1840 election the Whigs were desperate for Southern votes, so they nominated Tyler as their vice presidential candidate. After running a succession of former military generals (Zachary Taylor and Winfield Scott), they finally achieved success with General William Henry Harrison with the famous campaign slogan of “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too” (Harrison was known for his participation in the Battle of Tippecanoe during the Indian wars in Indiana, where he was governor in 1811).

A Warmonger’s Guide to Militarism and Imperialism

undefined

When Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton was an undergraduate at Harvard he took time out to become a “Publius Fellow” at the “Straussian” neocon Pentagon propaganda mill known as the Claremont Institute in Claremont, California. After graduating he returned to Claremont Graduate School to pursue graduate studies in “government” under the tutelage of the “Straussians” there, but dropped out to pursue a law degree instead. He then joined the US Army, eventually going to Iraq to kill Muslims.  All of this is why he is a darling of the most crazed neocons, especially Bill Kristol and his ilk. Since these crazed warmongers, who are now trying to start wars with Russia and China, control the Republican Party, they saw to it that the young Tom Cotton was elected to the US Senate from The Land of Bill Clinton — Arkansas.

Calling the Claremont Institute a “Pentagon propaganda mill” is no exaggeration. After the entire world understood that the invasion of Iraq was entirely based on a Big Lie, promoted by such people as those associated with the Claremont Institute, the Claremont Institute awarded its annual “statesman of the year” award to Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Rush Limbaugh and Victor Davis Hanson for their respective roles in instigating and prosecuting this senseless and catastrophic military intervention that even the Bush administration’s British political sock puppet Tony Blair has apologized for.

The Claremont Institute neocons claim to be “the” experts on the US Constitution, with their educational arm now being Hillsdale College, run by former Claremont Institute president Larry Arnn. They hold an annual “Constitution Day” event in Washington, D.C., with this year’s featured speaker being Senator Cotton, who spoke on the subject of foreign policy and the Constitution. The senator’s speech is published in the recent issue of Imprimis, a publication of Hillsdale College (a publication started by Lew Rockwell when he worked at Hillsdale, long before the neocon takeover).
