 Is there really a book my readers are afraid of?

Writes Tom Woods:

I’ve been around these parts too long not to know the truth.

You want to be master of the universe when it comes to economics, but Ludwig von Mises’s Human Action — which you know you should read — is much too intimidating.

Fair enough.

So what should you read by Mises?

Beats me. I always thought his introductory texts were too introductory. So where’s that perfect middle?

Answer: The Mises Reader, edited by my friend Shawn Ritenour, and published by the Mises Institute.

And you can read it for free.

Here’s Mises in his own words, covering topics arranged just right, and at just the level the intelligent layman needs.

Re: Revisiting the “Armenian Question”

Lew, overall it is quite good.  But at the end – while the author is quite right that the US will not help the Christians, he does not point to the fact that it is the US that is harming the Christians – other than to point to the US withdrawal, which is a distraction from the larger calamity brought on by the US.

I may have mentioned to you: I was in Armenia in 2012 when this US mess in Syria was just starting.  There were many Armenians from Syria in Armenia starting to take refuge, wondering if they could ever go home again (there are countless more today).  They would ask: why is the US government doing this to our country?

Why does a rat dig in the trash?  Same question, same answer: it is its nature.

Hillary just declared war on Bernie

Writes Tom Woods:

Well, this just got juicy.

In a four-part documentary to be released soon on Hulu simply called “Hillary,” the former First Lady says of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders:

“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

When The Hollywood Reporter asked Clinton if that description still stands, she replied: “Yes, it does.”


If you were thinking Clinton might, in return for his 2016 endorsement, at least refrain from bad-mouthing Sanders, you were incorrect.

That pathetic endorsement, I might add, served to show what all of us knew, that Bernie wasn’t one one-hundredth the man Ron Paul was.

And what did it get him? Open contempt.

In fairness, however, I will join Bob Murphy in noting that one thing Sanders has going for him is that he deftly avoids being drawn into personality squabbles.

When asked to respond to the “nobody likes him” comment, Sanders came back with: “On a good day my wife likes me, so let’s clear the air on that one.” And then he proceeded to discuss impeachment.

Who will vote to remove Trump? A prediction

Writes Chaz Donovan:

We know all the obvious ones. Tucker is  asking Bill Hemmer about it. Hemmer says Collins, Murkowski and Willard are the three determinants. I have been saying for a while Willard will absolutely vote to remove Trump. Zero doubt. Collins and Murkowski I think will vote AGAINST removing Trump. Both of them will definitely drag it out to be dramatic and act like it’s an agonizing decision (just as Collins did with Kavanaugh). Willard is a guarantee vote to remove. He dreams of a post Trump Republican Party where he could possibly run for President again. A vote to remove Trump will score Willard even more points with the Bill Kristols of the World and Conservative, Inc. Keep an eye out for Joe Manchin, Democrat from WV. It’s West Virginia, and about a year ago there were heavy rumors he’d switch to the Republican Party. I think Manchin will vote AGAINST removal.
