CALEB MAUPIN—Some free market conservatives and libertarians argue that even Nixon’s 1973 reforms went too far. Sue Lowden, a conservative candidate for Congress in Nevada argued that the insurance companies created by the state were unnecessary, because prior to that Americans were free to barter with their physicians. She said “You know, before we all started having health care, in the olden days, our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor. They would say I’ll paint your house…. In the old days that’s what people would do to get healthcare with their doctors. Doctors are very sympathetic people. I’m not backing down from that system.”

YASH LEVINE—The fake Kremlin connection that New Knowledge foisted on Moore was picked by major news outlets and became a big media scandal.

Ironically, even Russiagate disinfo experts who are constantly on the hunt for evil Kremlin active measures campaigns fell for this fake news op — that includes neocon activist Sarah Kendzior.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—In our society, those who are uplifted, rewarded and applauded are those who make it their sole focus in life to obtain as much influence over as many lives as possible. That’s basically how our insane society defines “success”: having a whole lot of employees, a whole lot of subservients, a whole lot of consumers, a whole lot of fans, a whole lot of people who listen to you and think you’re important. The more lives you affect, the more successful you are considered to be.
What this means is that those who wind up having the most influence over the most people are the ones who made doing so their highest priority in life.

ERIC LONDON—Federal prosecutors outlined initial details of the plot in a 15-page criminal complaint filed in the US District Court for the Western District of Michigan. The conspirators, who claim the ability to mobilize “hundreds” of people, made intricate plans to intercept Whitmer at her vacation home and to forcibly transport her on a boat across Lake Michigan to an undisclosed militia-controlled location in Wisconsin. They then planned to stage a trial and execute her. Other conspirators planned to descend on the state Capitol in Lansing, take control of the legislative chambers, and disband the elected government.
