Donald Trump, NATO, UKIP: a Question of Foreign Policy


The rise of Donald Trump and the so called “radical right” in the USA has left a sour note in much of the mainstream media. Comparing him to “Hitler”, or brandishing him a “Fascist” – although, as Thomas Sowell rightly pointed out years ago, ‘fascism’ is very much a left wing ideology – this mainly stems from Trump’s supposedly “dangerous” immigration policy. Mainly because that is what Trump mostly uses as a populist device, changing Pat Buchanan’s (“the Trump of the 90s”) arguments of “Culture War” to arguments which relate more to ordinary, working-class people and which are affecting their lives.

An English Reader Reports The British Authorities Ignoring Madrassas, Investigating UKIP

I am disgusted to see that my own country, Britain, is constantly late and waits  for extreme danger before it does anything to tackle extreme Islam in schools. It has just now just started to investigate one such school. This school in Dewsbury, Yorkshire called ‘The Islamic Tarbiyah Academy’ has just been investigated for “Promoting extremist Islam”. Extremist is an understatement!

Oxford Union Don't Care About Cecil Rhodes

Via Here
It is rather sad to hear that the Oxford Union has (narrowly) backed the removal of the Cecil Rhodes statue. It is sad to see that this glorified pressure group win what was in a nutshell going against a dead's man legacy and in the end airbrush him out of history.

Professor Biggar couldn't have said it better when he said;
"If Rhodes must fall, so must Churchill, whose views on empire and race were similar. And so probably must Abraham Lincoln. While Lincoln liberated African-American slaves, he doubted they could be integrated into white society and favoured their separate development—their apartheid—in an African colony."
No man is perfect, but every man should be giving a fair hearing.

It's not just that though. The #RhodesMustFall gang are more symbolic. This is Oxford.The beacon of learning in the Western world. This is where free speech should be cherished. Men should be able to debate and think whatever they please. This goes against that. what University should be. It should be making orators who respect people who they disagree. When the pressure group wins, it will symbol the end of free speech in all universities.

To quote Rhodes himself, "Remember that you are an Englishman, and have consequently won first prize in the lottery of life." If people understood that free speech was more important and England's greatest gift to it's people, perhaps this populism would go rejected and laughed as silly stuff.

Worth a Read: Anthony J. Evans Excellent Essay on Sound Money

Via Twitter
This is a lovely paper by Anthony J. Evans. It's a truly radical piece on economics and calling for a true end of this extreme Keynesian policies. Rarely do we see Mises style Austrian economics in both the mainstream and in Britain. The ASI are becoming a lot more better in my opinion and are seeming to go against the Cato style IEA and becoming it's own unique identity.

Give it go, you may not agree with all of it, but you will at least have read it.

Not a Good Day for The Markets

Germany's Market Plunge. (Via ZeroHedge)
Not at all shocking one has to say. Where ever China goes, our countries must follow. Our dependency on the country has really shown the lack of growth in that we really are facing. In fact a survey conducted has found that manufacturing has faulted again in December in the UK. If the BBC is to be believed. It may be growth but not at levels we should be wanting to see.

By coincidence and definitely more important is in the USA, the Index for the Manufacturing Sector has plummeted to 2009 levels. One of the worst ways to start the year that features a presidential election.

I can feel the economy crumbling and I don't seem to mind.
