Some Misc. Items

Several times on this blog I have referred to Joe Biden as the “Alzheimer’s-In-Chief,” like yesterday, which might be offensive to some people. So, I apologize for that. I am not making fun of people who have Alzheimer’s, and I’m not making fun of Biden because he has Alzheimer’s. But I am sarcastic and Biden is a corrupt and criminal politician who is the beneficiary of election fraud and has no place being in the White House. (Actually no one has any place being President, but that’s for a different discussion.) It is very sad that someone like Biden who is clearly out of it and clearly is in an advanced stage of Alzheimer’s is being used by the puppet masters and by the “liberal interventionists” and socialist-progressives to ram their agenda through. Eventually the Cabinet will have to use the 25th Amendment and let Kommie-La be the Puppet-In-Chief. But, I know Alzheimer’s is serious, I shouldn’t refer to Biden as the “Alzheimer’s-In-Chief,” and so I will change that to “the Alzheimer’s patient in the White House,” which is a little less sarcastic and a little more accurate.

Regarding Donald Trump’s lawsuit against Fakebook and Twitter, et al., I hope that gets dismissed because those Big Tech companies, as bad as they are, are privately owned. They are not monopolies. If you really don’t like them then it is your responsibility to use their competitors or start a new social media company. That’s called the “free market.” But what Trump the fascist/socialist wants is to force private companies to have his social media postings on their platforms outside of their control regardless of what he posts, by government force. And even if they receive tax-funded subsidies, I still think the same way. If they do receive tax subsidies, then those should be removed. If they receive tax breaks, then they should keep their tax breaks. Everyone should have tax breaks because the taxes are involuntary forms of theft and need to be abolished. People have a right to keep everything they earn or honestly acquire. And no, tax breaks are not “subsidies,” because tax breaks allow people to keep more of what is already theirs in the first place.

NYC Elections, and the Truth about “Ranked Choice” Voting

I don’t really know that much about the New York City mayoral election going on now. Apparently there have been some screw-ups and this “ranked-choice” voting supposedly is involved in some way.

In ranked choice voting, allegedly, if the top vote getter doesn’t get over 50% of the votes, then voters have stated who their second choice would be, and it goes on from there to intentionally confuse the voters, as that is one tactic of the cheaters out there in order to get their candidate who did not win, to win.

But the truth is, when you have the candidate who received the most number of votes but not over 50%, the rest of the candidates together are not the equivalent of a single candidate opposing that top vote-getter. The rest of the candidates are all individual candidates. They are not a collective group that equals one opponent to the top vote-getter. That just is not the case and it shouldn’t be the case. Yet, that is really what the “ranked choice” proponents seem to be implying. There is no legitimate reason to have to get over 50% of the votes!

Now, here is a legitimate election: the one who receives the most number of votes wins. And that’s it. You don’t have to get 50% or more. Just get the most number of votes. Duh. You can have many candidates, and the top vote-getter gets something less than 50% like 39% for sake of discussion, but the other candidates all received less than that candidate’s 39% and did not get as many votes as that candidate. Whoever gets the most number of votes is the winner. And that’s the legitimate way to do elections. Anything else is a bunch of made-up crap to confuse people, like a Common Core version of voting, in order for cheaters to get around the requirement of receiving the most number of votes, to steal an election.

And that’s what I have to say about that. Now, as far as New York City is concerned, if I lived in New York any candidate who wants to decentralize the city, i.e. to break it into separate independent cities, for example to have a City of Manhattan, a City of Queens, a City of Brooklyn, and so on, would probably get my vote. (And each new city can further decentralize into separate independent neighborhoods, etc., etc.) And further, any candidate who wants to repeal or just not enforce all drug laws, gun laws, selling individual cigarettes laws, sugary drinks laws, taxi medallion laws, all zoning laws, and most other laws and regulations that violate property rights and individual liberty, would probably get my vote.

Remembering Robert Wenzel: Group Discussion on Rumble

Last week I did a post on Robert Wenzel, of EconomicPolicyJournal.com and TargetLiberty.com, who died about 2 weeks ago unexpectedly at the age of 63.

Here is a video discussion on Rumble by Joseph Cotto, Walter Block, Michael Edelstein, Murray Sabrin, Chris Rossini, and others, with their remembrances of Robert Wenzel:

https://rumble.com/vi0mp7-remembering-robert-wenzel-with-murray-sabrin-walter-block-michael-r.-edelst.html

Robert Wenzel, R.I.P.

Libertarian economics writer Robert Wenzel has died. His two blogs, EconomicPolicyJournal.com and TargetLiberty.com have for years been among the go-to blogs for libertarian-based economic analysis and libertarian philosophy and commentary. The loss definitely will leave a void, for sure.

Wenzel just put it all out there, his criticisms of the Black Lives Matter movement and Marxism in general, the modern cultural Marxism movement, Keynesian “economics” and socialism, and the present-day Covid scamdemic, as well as his promotion of the libertarian non-aggression principle and the private property society. Such commentary will surely be missed.

And regarding his death, it was apparently unexpected. At least, it was a shock to me, given that he had not mentioned on his blogs any recent illnesses or serious conditions. Tom Woods noted that Wenzel had “died peacefully in his bed.” And then I saw on Murray Sabrin’s blog the same thing, that he had died in his sleep, according to Wenzel’s daughter-in-law. And supposedly he was only 63.

Wenzel didn’t really say much about his personal life. I had the impression that he was either a single bachelor, or divorced. He may have mentioned an ex-wife, but I am not certain about that. So now we know that he had a daughter-in-law, and obviously at least one son. There really is no information about him, no particular obituary (so far), etc. He apparently had died around May 25th, a week ago.

He had been living in San Francisco or the greater SF area, and had given frequent updates on various situations there, such as how Walgreens had to close multiple stores because of government-approved shoplifting, for example. Wenzel had described how security guards or police are only allowed to make shoplifters give back the stolen merchandise at the door, but with no arrests if the merchandise is less than $950.

And he had described over this Year of the Covid Scamdemic how most of the sheeple in SF were masked, even outdoors, on their bike, or walking alone with no one around, or in the car alone. And he described and had video of one confrontation he had with a young male mask-stasi in the elevator yelling at him for not wearing a mask. The elevator stasi guy was hysterical (and I don’t mean “funny” hysterical). I found the post.

Wenzel’s first blog Economic Policy Journal included a lot of informative posts and articles on economics with analysis and commentary. Here is his 2018 book Foundations of Private Property Society Theory. And here is his most recent video from his series “This Week in Economics,” An Introduction to Austrian School Business Cycle Theory.

Also, you might be interested in hearing Wenzel’s 2012 interview with Gary Johnson when Johnson was running for President the first time as a Libertarian (sic) Party candidate.

And I was proud to have my own article, Libertarians for Socialism, on Wenzel’s Economic Policy Journal.

After years of EconomicPolicyJournal.com, Wenzel decided to put the more political, social and philosophical news and commentary on a new, separate blog, Target Liberty. It was there where his thought-provoking commentaries on issues like BLM, criminal justice and government police, the political class, and the insanity of Covid policies are located. He covered many issues.

On the right sidebar toward the top of Wenzel’s Target Liberty, he has a list of links to the “most popular posts in the last 30 days,” including MIT Researchers Infiltrated a Covid-19 Lockdown/Mask Skeptics Community: This is What They Found, and State Department Memo Authorizes and Encourages the Hanging of BLM Flag at All US Diplomatic and Consular Posts. A similar list is at the top right sidebar of his Economic Policy Journal.

Of course, I read Wenzel’s two blogs each day for years, and it’s hard to believe that such blogs will not continue. It is hard to believe that he actually died, without any advance notice. Perhaps someone can let us know what exactly the cause of death was. And if that’s too personal and invasive of me to ask, then never mind. But this really is a shock.

Peggy Hall on Lockdowns: Businesses Just Stay Open!!

It appears that we are in a new phase or regression back to unconstitutional fascist government orders for businesses to close or have “reduced capacity,” etc. This despite plenty of evidence that lockdowns and shutting down the economy have down WAY more harm than good. (They have done NO good at ALL!!)

Here is Peggy Hall of TheHealthyAmerican.org saying, “Businesses Just Stay Open!!!” and explaining in this rant that you own your own business, not the government, and you have a right to stay open. Government bureaucrats do not have the legal authority to order you to close or stay at home without due process. If you are in violation of actual laws, such as selling alcohol to minors, or if you have an actual restraining order against you, well that’s different. Otherwise, you have a right to go about your life, businesses stay open, and tell fascists to go jump in a lake. And she begins by directing people to her online courses and seminars, with a lengthy “epic rant” that follows.

Here is the BitChute page for that video.
