  • Obama Uses 1917 Espionage Act to Go After Reporters

    There is one problem with the entirely justified if self-interested media squawking about the Justice Department snooping into the phone records of multiple Associated Press reporters and Fox News's James Rosen. The problem is that what the AP reporters and Rosen did arguably violates the letter of the law. The search warrant in the Rosen case cites Section 793(d) of Title 18 of the U.S. Code. Section 793(d) says that a person lawfully in possession of information that the government has classified as secret who turns it over to someone not lawfully entitled to posses it has committed a crime....

    The Panic of 1920 started out as a contender for the greatest depression of all time, with a drop in prices and production during its first twelve months that dwarfed those of any other economic crash, and she piled on an unemployment rate that skyrocketed from invisible to 12% in a flash. Ignoring calls to do something, anything, to "help", Washington, DC simply allowed the economy to adjust wherever it chose to go. In tandem, Federal Reserve officials looked upon the rapid deflation in prices not with horror but with a declaration of its necessity. Yet, despite the lack of...

    It is a cliché that if we do not study the past we are condemned to repeat it. Almost equally certain, however, is that if there are lessons to be learned from an historical episode, the political class will draw all the wrong ones – and often deliberately so. Far from viewing the past as a potential source of wisdom and insight, political regimes have a habit of employing history as an ideological weapon, to be distorted and manipulated in the service of present-day ambitions. That’s what Winston Churchill meant when he described the history of the Soviet Union as...

    Polish code breakers won the Polish Russian war It wasn’t a miracle, it was Polish intelligence. The victory of the Polish army over Soviet invaders in the summer of 1920 in one of the most important battles of the 20th century. Newly discovered evidence suggests that what came to be known as the miracle on the Vistula river, was no miracle at all. It was all down to Polish military intelligence. The miracle means a miraculous reversal of fortunes – the Russians had been winning the war until they suffered a crushing defeat at the gates of Warsaw. Apparently Poland...

    Vol. 16 No. 2    THE GROWTH OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN THE 1920S Randall G. Holcombe    The federal government has grown substantially in the 20th century. In 1913, just prior to World War I, federal government expenditures were 2.5 percent of gross national product and by 1990 they had risen to 22.5 percent of GNP. The relatively small size of the federal government before World War I shows that it exhibited minimal growth in the 19th century, in stark contrast with its tremendous growth in the 20th century. [1] Figure 1 shows real per capita federal expenditures...
