Who Says Economic Sanctions Work?

One need only to look at North Korea and Iraq to see that the new oil embargo on Iran will fail too.
***
Not surprising, sanctions have rarely—if ever—succeeded in obtaining their desired results. The poster child for successful sanctions as a vehicle for change—divestment in South Africa during the 1980s in opposition to the Apartheid regime—is in reality a red herring. The South Africa sanctions were in fact counterproductive, in so far as they prompted even harsher policies from the South African government. The demise of Apartheid came about largely because the Soviet Union collapsed, meaning the South African government was no longer needed in the fight against communism.

Another myth that has arisen around sanctions is their utility in addressing nonproliferation issues. Since 1994, the U.S. has promulgated non-proliferation sanctions under the guise of executive orders signed by the president or statutes passed by Congress. But there is no evidence that sanctions implemented under these authorities have meaningfully altered the behaviors that they target.>>>

Trump's growing incoherence is driving away his political allies

Signs are emerging that President Donald Trump's political coalition may be weakening.

The most obvious place for the president to break with the other power centers in his party is on foreign policy. Of all the issues the president faces, foreign policy has been the one realm where Trump has been most willing to buck GOP orthodoxy, and where Republican leaders have been most willing — if only, at times, with meek whimpers — to push back.

But with his morally corrupt and tactically baffling handling of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which from all reports appears to have been a political assassination at the direction of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, Trump is earning serious rebukes even from his close allies.

Even Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Mike Lee (R-UT) have spoken out against the president's position on the issue, despite their usual full-throated support for Trump.

How to Fight Corporate Gun Control

When it comes to gun control, many people think of legislation, political campaigns, and even ballot issues. Lately, though, a new front is opening up in the battle for our Second Amendment rights – and it is primarily in corporate corner offices and boardrooms. -- Major corporations are now siding with those who attack our Second Amendment rights. Sounds harsh, but that is the objective reality behind the decisions of a number of companies who cut ties with the National Rifle Association in the wake of the shooting in Parkland. But it is going beyond that, as well.

What do I not understand about the American people?

The people fall in line… doing the same. It’s an echo chamber. -- Meanwhile, our liberties and our wealth are being stolen right out from under us. Most Americans are completely oblivious, and those who know don’t seem to care enough to do more than post their outrage on Facebook.

Straight-talking Tulsi’s rising star means setting sun for Dem Party establishment

Tulsi Gabbard’s blistering criticism of President Trump over his pardon to Saudi Arabia has further elevated her prospect of becoming the standard bearer in the 2020 presidential election, shaking up the Dem Party establishment.

The 37-year-old Hawaiian representative this week blasted Trump for being “Saudi Arabia’s b*tch” after he controversially backed the Saudi regime over the brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Trump said the US-Saudi relationship was too important to consider a rupture with the oil kingdom’s rulers.

Trump’s prioritizing of commercial and strategic interests over the brutal killing of a US-resident journalist in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 was met with widespread disdain among American politicians and media this week. But Gabbard’s put down was probably the most scathing and memorable.

Julian Assange’s indictment may cause trouble for Democrats

The Justice Department is about to indict Julian Assange, the editor of WikiLeaks. That’s according to various reports.

The Democrats are cheering because surely Assange will reveal some deep secrets about Russians and the last presidential election.

In the first place, the media of the world should be coming to Assange’s defense. He was, after all, breaking news just like the press does.

But there’s something else. Assange hinted prior to the election that the Russians weren’t the source of all the Democratic Party e-mails he published. What if the leak was from inside the Democratic Party itself?

What if Assange’s testimony, when it is forced, shows that the leaker was a disgruntled anti-Hillary Clinton Democrat who happened to be mysteriously murdered in a case that hasn’t yet been solved?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has been leaked that the charges agianst Assange do NOT include the DNC emails.

‘Suicidal’ Monica Lewinsky Finally Admits It: Bill Told Me To Lie Under Oath

Former President Bill Clinton will forever be remembered as the man who cheated on his wife numerous times, but was only ever officially caught once.

That one time was with a White House intern.

Now, that intern with whom Clinton had an affair is saying Bill told her to break the law and lie under oath.

The Global Financial Crime Wave Is No Accident

There was a little bit of good news this month for those worried about a tidal wave of McMafia-style financial crime. A new UK government agency tasked with fighting it – the National Economic Crime Centre (NECC) – opened its doors.

I say “little” because financial crime is far more deeply rooted in our financial and political systems than we like to acknowledge.

The Inversion Agenda

We are now living in the last stage of a plan to invert the individual and society from natural order. The plan will be deemed a success when most human beings on the planet live inverted to their biology and nature, and come to believe that an inverted reality has always been a normal state of affairs.

The elites are performing the inversion to weaken man to such an extent that their rule will never be threatened. In effect, they are creating a permanent slave class that will be as incapable of overthrowing their masters as a herd of cows is incapable of killing the farmer who owns them, even though those cows descended from powerful bulls that could only be handled with specialized training or weapons. There is no better way to weaken humans than to take away their natural strengths, pit them against each other through a multitude of invented identities, and convince them that strength can only come in hedonistic pleasure that focuses around food, entertainment, and sodomy.

Obama’s spying scandal is starting to look a lot like Watergate

“F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims,” read the headline on a lengthy New York Times story May 18. “The Justice Department used a suspected informant to probe whether Trump campaign aides were making improper contacts with Russia in 2016,” read a story in the May 21 edition of the Wall Street Journal.

So much for those who dismissed charges of Obama administration infiltration of Donald Trump’s campaign as paranoid fantasy. Defenders of the Obama intelligence and law enforcement apparat have had to fall back on the argument that this infiltration was for Trump’s — and the nation’s — own good.

It’s an argument that evidently didn’t occur to Richard Nixon’s defenders when it became clear that Nixon operatives had burglarized and wiretapped the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters in June 1972.

Judicial Watch Files House Ethics Complaint Against Maxine Waters For Inciting Violence and Assaults on Trump Cabinet

In encouraging individuals to create “crowds” who will “push back” on President Trump’s Cabinet members at private business establishments and in seemingly trying to prevent these Cabinet officials from obtaining basic necessities without fear of assault and violence, Rep. Waters seems to be violation of House rules…

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today sent a hand-delivered letter to the chairman and co-chairman of the House Office of Congressional Ethics calling for an investigation into whether Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) violated House ethics rules by encouraging violence against Trump administration Cabinet members.

Rep. Maxine Waters addressed a rally in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 23, telling a crowd:

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere.”

BEX ALERT - Reggie Bush pushes disinformation about vaccines in Twitter 'conversation'

Now enjoying retirement following an 11-year NFL career, Reggie Bush took to Twitter on Sunday with a question he wanted his 2.88 million followers to answer: Do they believe this extremely anti-vaccine video he just found?

Claiming that he had been reading and watching videos on vaccinations and their “dangers,” the 33-year-old linked to a video of a retired nurse castigating a CDC panel over their vaccine regulations and pushing the widely debunked theory that vaccines cause autism. The video has since been deleted for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service.

MBS HIRES GERMAN PR FIRM TO POLISH HIS IMAGE

A German consultancy firm with access to senior officials in the country has been employed by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman to improve the kingdom’s image. For years, the Saudi leadership has spent large sums on lobbyists in the West and this weekend a German newspaper revealed that that the Crown Prince, known as MBS, is working with a Berlin based consulting firm to shape Germany’s impression of the 33-year-old.

Details of the agreement between MBS and the PR firm were discovered by German sources and reported in the Arab media. German Sunday newspaper, Welt am Sonntag reported that Saudi Crown Prince “has been working with WMP since 2015 to prevent the spread of negative views in Germany about the royal family.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Butcher of Yemen, aka Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, ;I can help you out here, and not charge you a dime!

HOW ABOUT STOPPING THE SLAUGHTER OF THE YEMENI PEOPLE, AND STOP ASSASSINATING YOUR OWN CITIZENS, WHEN YOU DO NOT LIKE WHAT THEY HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT WHAT DIRECTION YOU HAVE TAKEN IN THIS HORRIFIC WAR?!?!?

You are welcome, your Lowness!!

Jumping the Global Warming Shark

So it’s truly time to put this global warming nonsense to bed. -- It is, like so many other cultural issues we are dealing with right now, just another aspect of a mass solipsistic descent into madness induced by a century of Marxism decrying the wealth created by access to cheap, abundant energy and the dislocation we experienced thanks to rapid industrialization a century ago. -- This is just more Original Sin doctrine to control people by their ‘betters’ who live lives of such wealth the term ‘conspicuous consumption’ seems the grossest of understatement.

Fact: Rights Are Not Gifts From Government

Today, unfortunately, most Americans see it the other way around. They believe that rights only exist when government gives them a permission slip. Or, when the Supreme Court says they exist…until the judges change their mind. Their view is totally wrong.

ICOs: The Cancer of the Digital Currency Industry

The recent drops in the digital currency prices have been unparalleled in the amount of market capitalization dollars lost. In the past there has been some examples of large drops in Bitcoin and Altcoin prices, but what’s happened over the last 10 days cannot be an accident or attributed to the Bitcoin Cash hard fork...

Fact: Rights Are Not Gifts From Government

By Michael Boldin

A lot of people misunderstand the nature of their rights. The source.

To the Founders, an understanding of NATURAL RIGHTS was essential. These rights pre-exist any government or document or decree.

They knew that when the people view understand their rights as a birthright rather than a gift from government, they’re much more likely to ignore government attempts to restrict or end them...

Can You Name a Single Nation That Became Rich with Collectivist Policies?

By Daniel J. Mitchell

I periodically ask my left-leaning friends to identify a nation that became rich with statist policies.

They usually point to Sweden or Denmark, but I point out that Sweden and Denmark became rich in the 1800s and early 1900s when government was very small.

At that point, they don’t really have any other response...
