The CIA, Washington Post, And Russia: What You're Not Being Told


[Jeff Bezos] recently secured a $600 million contract from the CIA. That’s at least twice what Bezos paid for the Post this year. Bezos recently disclosed that the company’s Web-services business is building a ‘private cloud’ for the CIA to use for its data needs.
But the outlet’s behind-the-scenes relationship with the CIA is nothing new. In 2013, a conflict of interest arose shortly after Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon, purchased the newspaper. As the Nation reported at the time:

The Most Disruptive Transformation in History How the clustering of knowledge lays bare the need to devolve power from the nation-state to the city

Devolution and local empowerment would enable blue-state metro economies to invest their own resources while allowing others to do the same. It would respect local differences, local desires, and local needs. Importantly, it could also enable blue and red America to mutually coexist....

We need a strategy and a system where these two Americas can live peaceably beside one another, and where each can undertake the investments and shape the safety nets and other policy measures they need.

Even more importantly, it would start to shift power away from the dangerous anachronism of the nation-state — and the imperial presidency.

Will Tax Cuts and More Federal Borrowing/Spending Fix What's Broken?

45 years of Keynesian "stimulus"--tax cuts and federal borrowing/ spending--haven't stemmed the decline of labor's share of the economy (GDP). As these charts reveal, if labor's share of the economy was still at 50% rather than 42%, households with earnings from work would be getting an astounding $1.35 trillion more per year.
This equates to an additional $10,800 per household, per year (there are roughly 125 million households in the U.S.) or about $100,000 per household per decade.

A Strategy for the Right Murray N. Rothbard

And in this era where the intellectual and media elites are all establishment liberal-conservatives, all in a deep sense one variety or another of social democrat, all bitterly hostile to a genuine Right, we need a dynamic, charismatic leader who has the ability to short-circuit the media elites, and to reach and rouse the masses directly. We need a leadership that can reach the masses and cut through the crippling and distorting hermeneutical fog spread by the media elites.

When SWAT Raids Are Routine A conversation with the director of Do Not Resist.

3,000 raids per year in the 1980s, whereas now it’s between 50,000 and 80,000 raids per year....
Today you’re also able to seize the assets inside of the home and have those assets returned directly back to your police department. Gone are the days where you would take the asset and put it into a general fund for the city. After the feds stepped in and created the “equitable sharing” program, as long as a police department includes one federal agent on their task force, then their department itself gets to keep 80 percent of the money, and the feds get 20 percent of the money as a kickback.

LocalHarvest Newsletter, December 7, 2016 Thoughts on Future Food Policy

One concerning issue is there is some talk of separating the food assistance programs from the Farm Bill. Approximately 75% of the last Farm Bill budget went towards nutrition and food assistance programs, including SNAP (i.e. food stamps), senior farmers market vouchers, emergency food assistance, Native American food distribution programs, fresh produce for public schools, and more. Over a quarter of all Americans receive one or more of these benefits.

DEBATE BETWEEN MR. CLAY AND MR. CALHOUN,PERSONAL AND POLITICAL, AND LEADING TO EXPOSITIONS AND VINDICATIONS OF PUBLIC CONDUCT WHICH BELONG TO HISTORY.

The Farmers' register by Ruffin, Edmund, 1794-1865, ed

Noiliiiig is more certain than thai continual 
cropping witiio-ut manure deprives the soil ol" its 
fi'rtility. Ii if^ ecjuaily certain, that IfTiility may 
be preserved or restored, l)y giving to the earili 
animal or veixetable manure equivalent to the mat- 
ter taken li'nm it; and that a [jcrpetual lerlility is 
not, in itseli; incompatible, with an uninterrupted 
succession of crops. The Chinese, it is said, 
smile at the idea that land needs rest, as it" like 
animals, il had a sense of fatigue. Their soil 
does not need rest, because an industrious use is 
made of every teriilizing particle, that can contri- 
bute towards replacino; what has been drawn fi-om 
it. And this is the more practicable with them, as 
almost the whole of what is grown on the fiirms 
is consumed within them.
