SKYE’S LINKS 10/12/23
Is Elon Musk a Superhero or Supervillain? He could be either depending on the issue. But here’s once case where no doubt he’s the former. The Federalies have declared war on Elon Musk, and Elon has declared war back. This is a war all freedom advocates want Elon to win!
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
― George Orwell, 1984
Further evidence for Federalie perfidy. The Federalies are desperately rewriting the past and insist that you wipe your wrongthink memories of the past three years; those pandemic mandates never happened – you are just imagining that they did:
But wait! There is so much more that you must not remember, and certainly must never ever talk or write about – lest other people remember them too. Like asking, Who injured the country and the lives of its people more, the 4-years of Donald Trump or the 2.5 years of Joe Biden? and many similar questions:
Yes, the fix is in. Scientific publishers are censoring respectable analyses of the performance (lack thereof) of lockdowns so as to preserve the narrative of their efficacy so that they will be available for the next pandemic:
That about sums it up, doesn’t it? For if you do dare to write about any of those forbidden memories, the FBI has a domestic terrorist acronym for you: MAGA. The Fourth Turning is likely to get worse before it gets better. Are you still stuck in Dodge because you are frozen in place by a low interest rate mortgage in the current high mortgage rate high home cost environment which makes it prohibitively expensive to move? The next few years are going to be messy, and not just from local criminal gangs:
However! Good news! Liberty Safe company has gotten the message from their customers loud and clear, and has changed their privacy policies:
And how ‘bout this?!! The MSM’s Associated Press wire service is in a tizzy as a ‘Crat primary mayoral candidate reveals drop box stuffing videos and sues to have a judge order a new election:
More Good News! Parts of the Fourth Turning are now turning our way. The Germans are waking up to the climate change scam and have started to do something about it:
Still More! Turn, turn, turn… Swamp ‘Crats are panicking over the blowback that they are receiving from their urban base over the cascade of illegal migrants arriving in their sanctuary cities and demanding billions of dollars in housing, food, and medical care. Solution? Build a wall! I’m confident that they will build only a token amount of wall, which the MSM will publicize to the max. But as the buses continue to arrive, voters will see the painful truth, :
But building a short token section of new wall won’t solve this problem and save Xiden’s future:
Bill Maher has some pointed comments on hypocrite ‘Crats” – chief hypocrite being New York City Mayor Eric Adams who just issued the above notice.
More Maher on hypocrite ‘Crats:
More turning our way! Big tech censorship is heading for a SCOTUS dust-up. They claim that they can censor because they have a First Amendment right to do so, and that being private companies, the First Amendment rights of their customers do not apply to their censorship. They claim, in this respect, to be like newspapers. They are not. They have a special privilege from the Federalies, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act which immunizes them from a huge range of lawsuits. Newspapers do not have this privilege. This makes these companies government actors, just like a railroad which is granted eminent domain powers. That makes the railroad a common carrier. I THINK THAT JUSTICE THOMAS HAS IT RIGHT:
There are also two prior SCOTUS decisions regarding how private corporate property can be deemed a public square for First Amendment purposes. While I disagree with these two decisions, I doubt that the Court will be willing to overturn them – especially the three liberals. The tech oligopolies are vastly more significant public squares than the properties in either of the two cases below:
Musk and Dershowitz on free speech:
LOL! Another court case likely to turn in our direction – thanks to Hunter Biden!
The Mises Institute on Man, Economy, State, and culture war:
For investors; national debts and deficits:
For investors; the last 15 years have seen interest rates repressed to 5000 year lows – and we are now reverting to the mean, which is 2-3% above inflation for long bonds:
At least, regarding the last three links, that’s what the doom-and-gloomers say. The above ‘toon is indeed the right question to ask of them. After all, it’s duck-soup easy to make an open-ended prediction. So let’s close with something to celebrate!
As you are reading this, Jack Wheeler is on a remote island in the Indian Ocean you likely have never heard of (Cocos-Keeling). Here is what he wrote on this day, October 12, one year ago. Enjoy! Happy Columbus Day!
