Communist web-rag RawStory recently popped out a story entitled Bernie Sanders explodes a right-wing myth: ‘Open borders? No, that’s a Koch brothers proposal’. Now that Bernie Sanders has doubled down on restricting immigration, likely making Rep. Luis Gutierrez apoplectic, the socialist rabble have to realign their opinions. Why, it was just a few months ago, that RawStory was cheering on mass immigration. And then a few weeks ago, they were criticizing Scott Walker for wanting to restrict even legal immigration. The socialist media was condemning him for walking away from an illegal immigrant family. What gives?
I remember, weeks ago, mentions about the suicide of a woman in her jail cell. I didnt pay much mind to it at the time, but its interesting how these stories develop and seem to be chosen by the media, or an interest group. Then, about a week ago, an admin at African Americans for Liberty messaged the page to ask if I had heard of her. I said I was not sure, and he wanted to get it going in the libertysphere because it wasnt getting much press. Apparently, it was a case of police brutality. I believe this is the article I read at the time, upon searching “Sandra Bland”. I recommend watching the video there at some point.
The neocons (aka Trotskyists—communists) have been trotting (heh) out a bunch of nonsense comparing Obama and the West to Neville Chamberlain because of the supposedly weak deal made with Iran over its nuclear program. Personally, I dont think Iran is producing nuclear weapons, but thats another story. The neocons are fearmongering that Iran will do something bad next, hinting at what Hitler did, but usually they are only able to come up with nuking or attacking Israel, Europe, and America.
Lets take a look at what actually happened in Nazi Germany and Islamist Iran. I am going to ignore the justifications used for some of these actions to maintain impartiality.
I am two Shabbats behind, but I intend to make them up anyway. Two Shabbats ago, the parashah was Pinehas (Bemidbar/Numbers 25:10–30:1). This is the story of the inheritance of the priesthood, the revenge against the Midianites, a second census, the divisions of land, questions of inheritance, the succession of Moshe, and what offerings are to be made every year.
If you want to know how meaningless the spot price of silver is, try to buy some physical silver. The spot price is currently about $14.80. To buy a generic ounce round, youll have to pay $16, an 8.5% premium. 10 and 100oz bars are cheaper (6.8% and 4.9% respectively). When I bought some 10 oz bars a few months ago, the premium was 2.7%. And then we come to my personal favorite: junk silver.
With the sudden surge in popularity for Bernie Sanders, I decided to check out the polls to see how he does among black voters. I had read that he had a bit of a problem with them, and indeed, he does. But, then I noticed something stark and unexpected: he has a HUGE gap among women. This is important to take note of and might pose a bit of a problem for the socialist Senator from Vermont.
A 2012 oped in the LA Times noted that, with one exception, the eventual nominee in both parties had won either in Iowa or New Hampshire. Had Ron Paul won in Iowa (he almost did, and did among men), he would have had a stronger shot at the nomination. Indeed, he came in second in New Hampshire, and a win in Iowa could have propelled that towards a win, pulling Romney to a halt. Instead, Romney won both and the rest was a slow death.
