    Donald Trump is the leader of the "Galt-Right", a movement which rewards success, freedom and individuality. Sorry, not much of a post, just wanted to post something to counter the talk of all this "alt-Right" nonsense.

    UK Daily Mail ^ | January 30, 2015 | Richard Shears
    As world events threaten the comfortable lifestyles of the West's super-rich they have begun buying up fabulous 'bolt hole' properties in the far-away safe haven of New Zealand. The world's elite are snapping up properties in the tiny country, which they see as a shelter from the threat of terrorism, civil unrest and instabilities in the financial markets. Interest in pricey land and homes in the North and South Islands has soared in recent years following terrorist strikes and civil disobedience in North America, the UK and Europe.

    The Conservative talker quit his show during the middle of his program 7/31. “The Jason Lewis Show” is syndicated by Genesis Communications. Lewis spent a decade at KSTP-AM in the Twin Cities before leaving the station in 2003 for a job at WBT in Charlotte. He returned to the Twin Cities in 2006 for a job at KTLK. Lewis’ show was syndicated in 2009. His flagship was Clear Channel’s KTLK. “He told me two months ago he intended to retire Aug. 1,” Mike Crusham, president and market manager of CCME Minneapolis/St. Paul told The St. Paul Pioneer Press. “He decided...

    Independent Women's Forum (IWF) ^ | 12 Janaury 2014 | Charlotte Hays
    Ninety-two million Americans are not in the work force—they don’t have jobs and they aren’t looking for jobs. These 92 million Americans aren’t just out of work—they are resigned to being out of work as a way of life. The ballooning numbers of Americans who are resigned to long-term joblessness inspired Roger L. Simon to suggest in a bleakly humorous piece over at PJ Media that Americans are going Galt: Tell all your “Objectivist” friends and the libertarian gang at Reason magazine to break out the champagne. Americans may have skipped the movie of Atlas Shrugged, nor have many read...

    Welcome to Galt.io! If you're here, you're probably already a thinker and producer--a maker, not a taker. You believe that private property, the rule of law, and voluntary association are the cornerstones of individual rights and human liberty. You are also a little fed up with the current crop of politicians who celebrate mediocrity, forced charity, and out of control big government - See more at: http://www.galt.io/?utm_source=Go+Galt%21+Pre-Launch+Email++11.22.13&utm_campaign=galt+pre-launch+email&utm_medium=email#sthash.xh6TnBiT.dpuf
  • He is "Quitting Business 2013... Opting Out"

    Quitting Business 2013... Opting Out Word has been getting around that I am "retiring"; this is not true. I am quitting in disgust and sadness that the criminal entity I am paying taxes to is demonstrably not a legitimate government. This is the one means I have of legally striking back, by eliminating my income. This is a one-man general strike — all who wish to join me are welcome. My hope that we can stop the current lurch towards WWIII rises and falls each day. An order came in recently with the note "We will miss you". As much...

    Ticker Forum ^ | 9/28/13 | Karl Denninger
    In 2007 I began writing The Market Ticker due to the outrageous conduct of various branches in the Administration and portions of the Capital Markets. Endemic fraud in the financial system that had generated unbridled and outrageous credit creation threatened the collapse of our entire economic system. The consequence of this should have been thousands of indictments, prosecutions and imprisonments -- of banking executives, of members of Congress, of various executive branch officers in various agencies and more.  The banking system should have been forced to match assets to liabilities and either put up the margin to back their bets or...

    Ricochet ^ | September 28, 2013 | Peter Robinson
    This past week, Rod posted a remarkable bleg over on the website of the American Conservative. Because Rod's premise is so arresting--he believes we've about reached the point at which good and decent people need to drop out of American society to form their own counterculture--and because Rod himself is such a sweet writer, I thought I'd re-post his bleg right here. To wit: You who have been following my work for years know that I keep coming around to this idea of the “Benedict Option.” In short, it means this: At what point do the conditions of moral breakdown...

    President Obama promised he would unite the world…and he’s right.Representatives from dozens of nations have bitterly complained about an awful piece of legislation, called the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), that was enacted back in 2010.They despise this unjust law because it extends the power of the IRS into the domestic affairs of other nations. That’s an understandable source of conflict, which should be easy to understand. Wouldn’t all of us get upset, after all, if the French government or Russian government wanted to impose their laws on things that take place within our borders?But it’s not just foreign...

    Townhall Finance ^ | May 12, 2013 | Daniel J. Mitchell
    I’ve written many times about how investors, entrepreneurs, small business owners and other successful people migrate from high-tax states to low-tax states. Well, the same thing happens internationally, as France’s greedy politicians are now learning. It’s a lot harder for Americans to escape our tax system, though, in part because of reprehensible exit taxes that are disturbingly reminiscent of some of the awful policies of past totalitarian regimes. But it still happens, and that’s a very damning indictment of Obamanomics and a worrying referendum on the future of the United States. Here are some blurbs from a recent Fortune article....

    There has been a Utopia, Ohio, and there still exists a Utopia, Texas. In a country with a long history of creating idealistic communities, America may soon see another added into the mix — a city rooted in America’s past, or at least Glenn Beck’s version of it. Mr. Beck, the outspoken conservative U.S. media personality and commentator, this month outlined his proposition to create a self-sustaining city and theme park hybrid. Independence, USA represents a harkening back to a time of a simpler America and would be built on values he sees the country as now “going away from”...

    Crains Detroit Business ^ | 12 Jan 2013 | Tom Henderson
    Real estate developer Rodney Lockwood Jr. agrees with Detroit politicians that Belle Isle is a jewel. A tarnished jewel he likes so much that he wants to put together an investor group to buy it for $1 billion, which is more than $1 million an acre for the 982-acre park in the middle of the Detroit River. And then he wants to polish it up with $20 billion in construction projects on the island, which would lead to another $20 billion in construction projects off the island and tens of thousands of temporary construction jobs and tens of thousands of...

    Going Galt has a nice ring to it. Most people do not know what going Galt really means. Like so many expressions we have today, it can mean any number of things. How about a going Galt strategy that will generate results? What does going Galt mean and how would the strategy work? Going Galt is generally meant that those of us who are producers in society simply refuse to produce any more. Without producers, the economy will collapse. After all, without the producers, who is going to make what the takers want? Going Galt is actually something the left...

    Hostess Brands Inc. said it likely won't make an announcement until Friday morning on whether it will move to liquidate its business, after the company had set a Thursday deadline for striking employees to return to work. The maker of Twinkies, Ding Dongs and Wonder Bread had warned employees that would file a motion in U.S. Bankruptcy Court to unwind its business and sell off assets if plant operations didn't return to normal levels by 5 p.m. EST Thursday. That would result in the loss of about 18,000 jobs.Snip The Teamsters meanwhile are urging the smaller union to hold a...

    Are Humans Becoming Less Intelligent? By Tia Ghose, LiveScience Staff Writer | LiveScience.com – Mon, Nov 12, 2012 Humans may be gradually losing intelligence, according to a new study. The study, published today (Nov. 12) in the journal Trends in Genetics, argues that humans lost the evolutionary pressure to be smart once we started living in dense agricultural settlements several thousand years ago. "The development of our intellectual abilities and the optimization of thousands of intelligence genes probably occurred in relatively non-verbal, dispersed groups of peoples [living] before our ancestors emerged from Africa," said study author Gerald Crabtree, a researcher...

    My Seething Mind ^ | 11/11/12 | Moi
    Ten years ago, a white man from South Africa, one Kim du Toit, wrote an essay titled “Let Africa Sink.” It’s rather famous in the blogosphere in a sort of underground way. His thesis was essentially, we (Western Civilization) cannot save Africa. Life is cheap there. The mortality rate is a result of a perfect storm of natural disaster, human savagery, and unwitting complicity by Europeans that worsens the situation every time they try to help. As a result, death is treated more casually by Africans than by Westerners. I, and I suspect most Africans, am completely inured to reports...
