Video Dispatch from the Nevada Range War

(Raw footage of ranchers turning back BLM Agents)

 

range-war-screen-shot-565x312

 

Nevada is a crazy place. Casinos, legalized prostitution, peyote, instant marriages and divorces, Harry Reid, Elvis, the fact that it looks like the surface of the moon with the odd cactus, makes the state unusual. Don’t forget area 51 too. Not that it exists of course.

But one of the most interesting elements of the desert southwest are the people who live out beyond the glitz of Vegas in the dust and tumbleweeds. These people do not play, and they remind me of the mountain folk who live not far from me in Virginia. They are hardscrabble and they are independent. They mend their own fences and they don’t like that the Federal government has been encroaching on their lives for 3 generations. Some people from the city might call them hicks. I call them blessedly free.

This “range war” has a lot of “ins and outs and what-have-yous” as the Dude might say. It is not just a case of some rancher gun nut not paying the BLM protection money. His family worked the land for over a century before the BLM decided he couldn’t ranch it anymore. That matters a lot. Plus he offered to pay fees to the county and not the Feds but the county refused the funds. (Likely under pressure.) I wonder if the guy should have to pay any fees at all given that his family has mixed their work with the soil (such as it is) for such a long time.

I’m just interested in watching things play out and in watching people stand up for themselves. We should all be thankful for iPhone recording capability that’s for sure.

Attached is raw video of a confrontation between Nevada locals and federal agents. The Feds are over reaching. If there is any place one shouldn’t have to worry about federal agents threatening you it should be in the Nevada desert.

The people in the video are pushing back. I particularly like the part where the guy gets tazed and he just pulls the wires off.

Jim Rickards: The Demise Of The U.S. Dollar

(And Mutualy Assured Financial Destruction) Video

It won’t happen tomorrow but slowly but surely the world is moving from dollars. The petrodollar system which has been key to the world economy over the last 40 years is eroding. More and more country to country deals are being done in currencies other than the dollar. The economic world as we have known it, after Bretton Woods in the Cold War Era, the post Cold War era, and the post 9-11 era is fundamentally shifting.  The dollar is not what it once was. It is no longer “almighty” and one should be prepared.

People have been predicting the death of the dollar for quite a while now, but many falsely believe that because hyperinflation hasn’t taken hold (there’s plenty of inflation though despite what we are told) we must be out of the woods. This would be a foolish assumption.

Since 2008 particularly I have watched the power of the dollar erode steadily. Countries are figuring out how to unwind their dollar positions without causing panic and killing the value of their dollar denominated assets. In order to unload dollar denominated assets and debt there has to be a willing buyer. Moving too quickly is suicide, but many “international actors” think not moving at all is also.

No one wants to get stuck holding the bag of dollars when things go south. But if things go bad (for the dollar) slowly the theory is an orderly less disruptive liquidation can occur. This will take, and has taken years. But it’s happening.

About:

Is the Obama Administration telling the American people the truth over what is happening in Iraq and Crimea? A growing number of international observers are starting to question the chronicle of events being released by the White House.

In Brussels, the President recently stated “But even in Iraq, America sought to work within the international system. We did not claim or annex Iraq’s territory. We did not grab its resources for our own gain. Instead, we ended our war and left Iraq to its people in a fully sovereign Iraqi state that can make decisions about its own future.”

Some political observers are not so sure about those statements. In the last few years, Iraq has largely fallen back into sectarian violence. Suicide bombers and sneak attacks on security forces are commonplace.

Francis Boyle is the author of Foundations of World Order. The professor from the University of Illinois is an expert on foreign relations.

Boyle is our guest on the show today. He is here to talk to us about the annexation of Crimea by Vladimir Putin, as well as how that event compares to the war in Iraq. We will discuss the driving forces leading up to each invasion, and the motives pushing Vladimir Putin. We will also talk about how life changed for people in each war-torn region. Finally, we will look ahead to the future in Iraq, Crimea, and the Ukraine.

Stealing from the Poor to Give to the Rich (Video)

 

Em-Dom-c-c

 

People often think that property rights benefit those with the most property the most. This isn’t true however. It is actually the poor who in terms of quality of life, benefit most.

In order to have property rights there must be the rule of law. Not the rule of might. In a place where property rights are not respected only the powerful are secure in their possessions (and even then.) If people are not secure in their property, for fear that a “king” or a crony capitalist with connections to the “king” might take their property – the economy suffers. People can’t make contracts with one another. They can’t leverage property. They can’t build wealth, even modest wealth, because any wealth created can always be taken.

Poor people by definition do not have much. But if they can be sure that what little they have will remain theirs and that even the most powerful in society are checked by the rule of law, poor people at least have the chance to build wealth and to escape poverty.

But where the state or private allies of the state can seize property with no regard to ownership (as is the case in many countries) the poor will remain poor.

Video of the Day – Reporter Reveals White House Press Conferences are Entirely Scripted Nonsense

 

I hold the world but as the world, Gratiano;
A stage where every man must play a part,
And mine a sad one.

- The Merchant of Venice, Act I, Scene I

As readers of this site are already very much aware, the entire world around us is micro-managed with intense propaganda by what Professor C. Wright Mills called ”the power elite.” This culminates into an existence within a manufactured, nonsensical world that investment legend Seth Klarman referred to as The Truman Show.

Well The Truman Show that is the USA has been exposed once again. According to this CBS reporter from Arizona, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney receives all questions to “press briefings” ahead of time. In many cases, the reporters themselves even possess the scripted answers to their questions before the conference starts. Yes, as suspected, it’s all just one gigantic stage and you are the clown in the audience.

Watch and weep serfs.
