SKYE’S LINKS 11/09/23


The Fall of the Wall, Berlin, November 9, 1989

Today (11/09) is World Freedom Day! A celebration of what Wikipedia calls “a pivotal event in world history,” commemorated by the President issuing on this day, as in years before, A Proclamation on World Freedom Day, 2023.

It has special significance for TTPers, as TTP’s founder Jack Wheeler, as the creator of the Reagan Doctrine, played such an instrumental role in bringing the Fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union about.  (November 9th also has quite personal significance to Jack, for it’s his birthday. He’s 80 years old today!)




Thomas Hobbes’ Leviathan 1651


Jack’s Reagan Doctrine and Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative drove the USSR over the economic cliff onto the ash heap of history. Today, our Deep States Federalies (America’s equivalent of Hobbes’ Leviathan), with enthusiastic help from China and Russia, are returning the favor with unsustainable debt and deficits.  The current situation cannot go on forever, and so we can be sure that it won’t.

How the consequent discontinuity manifests itself remains to be seen:, but at this late stage of the process, it is likely to me both unavoidable and chaotic.  Welcome to the Fourth Turning crackup, which will sweep away many of the malinvestments and systemic structural defects that should have been liquidated long ago

Dr. Robert Malone is wise in ways that go beyond medicine and biology.  Here he discusses the big picture and the inescapable problems that we must solve to rebuild a free society. Please consider this a must-read:

Moving our way – the news is slowly escaping about the failures of lockdowns and other mandates during the “plague” years.  The government powers that be and the MSM have taken a big hit, and the size of that loss of confidence is continuing to increase as the fear of the disease drops and the awareness of the vaccine side effects mounts:

Elon Musk – to the Moon, Mars, and beyond!  I’d love to spend an afternoon with him explaining how with 1960s technology nuclear rocket engine, he could profitably mine the asteroid belt for nickel, platinum, iridium, palladium, and other commodities.  Robert Heinlein’s great science fiction novel, The Man Who Sold The Moon, could become the real life story of the man who sold the asteroid belt.:

Seventh Circuit rules that AR-15s and normal capacity magazines are not protected by the Second Amendment.  The circuit court is clearly wrong.  A more powerful semi-auto rifle has been in civilian use in America since 1907, the Winchester Model 1907 rifle in .351 caliber, which was available with 15 round detachable box magazines.  This case is headed to the Supreme Court for sure:
