    GHW Bush, RIP

    Ron Paul is right about Bush, Sr. and his involvement in drug smuggling. The late Rodney Stich, a former Federal Aviation Administration investigator, in his book Defrauding America provides evidence that Bush Sr. helped smuggle cocaine from Mexico when he was in the CIA.

    Binswanger is at it again

    Binswanger recently published yet another essay promoting open borders, ... ARI Watch analyzes it in ... Harry Binswanger on National Sovereignty

    I’m glad you found it informative, Ellen. Especially since sometimes I wonder if ARI Watch is worth the effort.

    “Birds of a Feather” grew by accretion. I forget the date of the first edition except that it was when the Iraq War was still “a thing” and Brook and the rest were pretending to denounce neoconservatives, even as ... but it’s in the article. I add to it whenever I come across something new that’s relevant. It’s more a reference/resource than an article. Thanks for reading part of it. It’s good Glick fights the absurd claims of Trump’s detractors about the synagogue massacre but I’d rather hear the arguments from a reputable source. I’ve read enough of Glick to know she frequently argues in bad faith and cannot be trusted. Even in this instance I’m suspicious. Indeed, why does she bring up Israel, her adopted country? Most of her article is about Israel, or Iran in relation to it. It sounds like she would turn on Trump and argue the opposite way if he were to stop supporting that country.

    No, I stopped reading after the first phrase. My statement about CG's opinion of Trump was unjustified. It looks like his support for Israel has won over CG.

    JEWS AND YOU AND JEWS “Just hours after the largest massacre of Jews in America in US history—“ How many other massacres of Jews in America in US history is Caroline Glick referring to? You must have been asleep in History class when the teacher covered the mass slaughter of hundreds of Ohio Jews in 1960. This article illustrates the perpetual siege mentality of Jewish culture. We innocents Jews are forever and always the victim of those vicious Gentiles, foremost among them Donald Trump! [See Ellen's correction about the last below.] Recall that Ms. Glick was behind the infamous “We Con the World” video and wrote article after article arguing for the release of the American traitor Jonathan Pollard (Obama released him and he’s now an Israeli). More details can be found in Birds of a Feather.
  7. The title of the New York Times’s video is misleading. The surveillance video shows how he got loads of guns into his hotel room, that’s all. This doesn’t address the concerns expressed by Ann Coulter.
  8. A Canadian has created a two part radio documentary about Ayn Rand and her influence: “The Long Arm of Ayn Rand: Why She Still Matters” under contract with the Canadian Broadcast Corporation for their “Ideas” series. CBC aired the first part today, Thursday November 1. They will air the second tomorrow at the same time, 9pm EDT. ADDED AFTER IT WAS OVER: It's a waste of time.

    Would Ayn Rand have voted for Trump?

    Link to Leonard Peikoff’s “Presumed Consent” Podcast on that Objectivism Online thread and see if you at least get “monitored.”

    Rape by an Objectivist

    Air brushed Objectivist publications and materials

    Where on did you find it? All I see are edited reprints of the articles by Peter Schwartz.

    My Review of Creating Christ (Valliant's Book)

    That Rand was brought up Jewish is news, where did Kolker – or whatever his name is – get it? The usual biographies say her father was not observant. Her mother was, but they also say she wasn’t close to her mother. “Rand had a Jewish moral and ethical sense.” Poppycock. ARI may have the attitude what’s-good-for-the-Jews and screw the Gentiles but Rand certainly did not.

    Yaron Brook on Scientology

    Yaron Brook on Scientology Another mean article on ARI Watch, again about Carl Barney. The case of Carl Barney is easy to understand and agree about. Even those who believe open immigration is the greatest thing since sliced bread, that the U.S was absolutely right to invade Iraq, that the U.S. should invade Iran too, that Israel is the alpha and omega of the universe – all those ARI positions – might balk at Carl Barney.

    Rape by an Objectivist

    Wolf DeVoon, There are good reasons not to go the police. In the case of Catherine she might not have wanted to subject herself to the police about a personal matter because some of them are stupid louts. It’s risky approaching the police. In the case of the second allegation (relayed by “anonymous” who’s supposed to reveal himself in July) that was online for a few days under the now dead link above, the young woman went to the police and they told her they weren’t going to do anything. As Jon points out there are cases where the victim of a crime would naturally speak out. I don’t think OTIPOJ is tabloid gossip. Jon Letendre, Thanks for telling about your experience with Ridpath. Reminds me of the end of his Patrick Henry talk where he strikes a tragic pose – emphasis on pose. A video used to be on YouTube but it’s been removed. ADDED: I discovered a note to myself about the video that I made after watching it a few years ago: He has a lecture on Patrick Henry. The first presentation – years ago – was sound recorded, I haven’t heard it. A fairly recent presentation was video-taped and ARI has it online. He’s off key from the beginning. I skipped to the end. The *attitude* he strikes at the end – extrovert look-at-me suffering, the tragic tone – is beyond description. He practically cries, and – this is the point – it’s so damn phony. His emotion is tilted and perverse, it’s all wrong.

    Rape by an Objectivist

    OTIPOJ was published in 1990 and a few years ago placed online with added commentary. Catherine’s claim that Ridpath raped her, made recently on OL, would be libelous if she were not telling the truth. (The commentary part of the OTPOJ webpage reports what Catherine said on OL, but a true report of what somebody else said in public is a fact and never libelous.) Now, Wolf, you don’t know that Catherine is lying. We cannot know she is telling the truth either but after extensive email correspondence with her and Ms. Martin in my opinion she is. In my last post I mentioned the Weinstein media noise as a possible explanation for why Catherine approached ARI just now. I don’t know for sure. She’s a difficult email correspondent, eager to talk then loathe to talk. Time doesn’t erase a crime. If this latest “indirect witness” to another alleged rape who is supposed to come forward after the July OCON is a substantial “pillar of society” type then I think what he says would be worth paying attention to – even after 30 years.
