So this interesting spiel from the self-appointed “health expert” Bill Gates took place on a recent “The Daily Show” with unfunny “comedian”  Trevor Noah. The 9 minute  run time for our favorite chirpy “The Next Pandemic” Nostradamus of chimeric gain-of-function, and enabler of most  lab-developed pandemics  allowed the billionaire  to  remain  quick to suggest how […]

Control the Food, Control the People

 

While everyone including myself, is gasping at the grocery check-out aisle here in the US when the tab comes up, I heard on the radio about a massive food cost increase in Germany. I don’t usually check German news.

While the Russian-Ukrainian conflict is wreaking havoc on grain, fertilizer, fuel, and other world exports, I found this story dated November 2021, so before the war, that describes the shift to “sustainable foods,” code for phasing out meat and replacing with plant-based substitutes. In Europe, there is something called a “Nutri-Score” nutrition label, as well as an “animal welfare” label.  This worldwide shift toward processed fake food (it’s what it is) was born out of the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset. Make real food more expensive to buy, put restrictions on farmers and ranchers, and they reach their goals. This doesn’t apply to all those cannabis growers. They’re making room for that important crop. More on that later.

Here is another German article from a month ago.

Inventors Who Got Their Ideas from Sci-Fi

 

American inventor Simon Lake was captivated by the idea of travel after reading Jules Verne’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” in 1870. He built the Argonaut, the first submarine to operate successfully in the open ocean, in 1898. Verne congratulated him.

Igor Sikorsky invented the modern helicopter, inspired by Jules Verne’s “Clipper of the Clouds.” He quoted Verne: “Anything that one man can imagine, another man can make real.”

Join Jim and Greg as they applaud Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for speaking the truth that schools should be open and there’s only one reason why they aren’t. They also shake their heads as a brutal cold snap causes power system failures and rotating blackouts through Texas – and the lessons that should be learned. And they take a bite out of Bill Gates for wanting all “wealthy nations” to switch to synthetic beef.

Last week the Stanford University study came out, which carefully methodically emphasized that with a real survey of random individuals being concluded, the COVID 19 experiment is not a pandemic. I’ll repeat that: this COVID 19 virus is not possessing mortality rates that approach by any means or method the mortality of a pandemic. COVID […]

Jim is on vacation but there’s still plenty of fireworks on Thursday’s Three Martini Lunch. Greg is joined by Chad Benson, host of “The Chad Benson Show.”  Today, they get a kick out Bill Gates wondering just how much of his money Elizabeth Warren wants and concluding a conversation with Warren might not be worth his time because he’s not sure how open-minded she is.  They also recoil as a judge allows police to demand DNA from one of those outfits that tracks your heritage as part of an investigation, although Chad reminds us we all have pretty much voluntarily given up our privacy. And they fire back at 11,000 “scientists” who now say the Green New Deal is not enough, but we have to engage in population control too.

I think it’s a phrase mostly used in the UK (especially with the first word spelled the way it is, so please don’t “fix” it), but it’s certainly applicable here.  Here’s the definition from The Cambridge Dictionary: “To be unable to choose because there are so many possible good choices.” So.  “Bill Gates reveals the […]

Richard Epstein on Classical Liberalism, the Administrative State, Free Speech, and Silicon Valley Regulation

 

For this week’s Big Ideas with Ben Weingarten podcast, I had legendary classical liberal legal theorist and longtime professor at University of Chicago Law School and now at NYU Law — and prodigious Ricochet podcaster Professor Richard Epstein on the podcast to discuss among other things:

  • The role that Professor Epstein’s famous book, “Takings” played in Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearing — and then-Senator Joe Biden’s hectoring
  • Professor Epstein’s groundbreaking theories on private property rights, eminent domain and the Takings and Commerce Clauses
  • The practical argument against progressivism
  • Whether we should deconstruct the administrative state, and if so how to do it
  • The danger to free speech emanating from college campuses in a world of microaggressions, trigger warnings, de-platforming
  • The folly of regulating Silicon Valley social media companies
  • Classical liberalism versus socialism and libertarianism
