The First Thanksgiving

Stan Freberg was a very funny man. I first wrote about him in 2003. He was part of the original Time for Beany, a local Los Angeles TV hand puppet show, which was immensely popular locally in 1949, and then went national from 1950 to 1955. Albert Einstein loved it. So did Groucho Marx. He did comedy […]

Charles Manson

It is strange how close we are to people we have never met. It is no more than six degrees of separation in most cases. There is a parlor game on this: the Kevin Bacon game. Name a movie. Then get to Kevin Bacon within six steps. Sometimes it is far fewer than six. A www.GaryNorth.com site member […]

I Never Watched House of Cards

This caught my eye. The problem with “House of Cards” is it paints everyone in Washington with the same poison brush. I suspected it would bad for our brand from the start, but tuned in for the first season out of curiosity. I turned off the first episode after Frank Underwood killed a dog with […]

Packed Churches

Regarding the mass murder in the Texas church, President Trump was correct: it was a good thing that somebody had a gun. Somebody outside the church had a rifle. He knew how to use it. It will not cost $1 million for the local authorities to try and convict the murderer. There will be no […]

Congressman Spam

Twice a week, I receive a spasm message from Congressman Gaetz. They are always boring. They refer to some obscure bill he voted for. No one cares except donors who want him to vote for or against this bill. The average voter has no interest. Why should he? The function of emails from a Congressman […]

Dirt Cheap

This 26-minute film is a classic example of subtle anti-free market propaganda. The Department of Agriculture produced it. It cost $6,000, which today would be the equivalent of $110,000. That was dirt cheap. Roosevelt liked it so much that he created a federal propaganda film department in 1938. Time to buy old US gold coins […]

Fats Domino, RIP

Fats Domino died on October 25, 2017. He was 89. Fats was the pioneer of rock and roll. People who came of age after 1954 forget this. Actually, my generation never knew it. “The Fat Man” was released in December 1949. It eventually sold a million copies. But it did not sell to the likes of us […]

Centennial

Remnant Review On October 25, 1917, the precursor to the Communist Party in Russia launched a 24-hour revolution against the revolutionary government of socialist Alexander Kerensky. This became known as the October Revolution in order to distinguish it from the revolution that had overthrown the Czar the previous February. In the October revolution, two people […]

The Case Against Gold

What I’m about to write here, I have believed for close to 40 years. I wrote about it decades ago in Remnant Review. I’m not going to look through all of the published issues to find when I wrote it. What good is gold in the vaults of any central bank? I understand why it’s a […]

2 Minor Technical Revisions of the Tax Code

Every ideologically driven citizen has one law that he would like to see enacted. The trouble is, there is no agreement about which law it should be. We all have our favorite hobby horse, our recommended silver bullet. I suggested two laws on Lew Rockwell’s site back in May 2000. It was the first article […]

Socialism Is a Corpse

Socialism was a specific philosophy of government ownership of the means of production. The democratic welfare state was never a variety of socialism. Marx, the most famous socialist, despised democracy. He despised all attempts at economic amelioration through legislation. He wanted a proletarian revolution. He preached — the correct verb — a religion of revolution. […]

Revisionist History vs. Conspiracy History

Because I was a revisionist historian at the age of 16, back in 1958, I am more aware of the development of revisionist history over the years than most people are. The fact that I received a Ph.D. in history designates me as probably the oldest living Ph.D.-holding historian who has always been a revisionist […]

Las Vegas as San Bernardino II

The obvious question in the San Bernardino mass shootings in December 2015 was this: “Does the ballistics evidence at the murder scene show that the alleged shooters’ weapons were involved?” I asked this ten days after the shootings. The Washington Post reported this: Agents from the FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the ATF headed to […]

Paying Income Taxes

The present federal tax code allows deductions for state income taxes. This is as it should be. Why? Because we should not have to pay taxes on what the locusts consume before we harvest the crop. This should be obvious. Let’s consider the doctrine of the tithe. A farmer should pay a tithe on that […]

JFK, Trump, and Camelot

If Trump was ever sincere, his election has proven that one person simply cannot fight this corrupt system, this horrid swamp. Trump the reformer, the unlikeliest of knights in shining armor, is gone. The renegade billionaire striking fear into the heart of the establishment lasted a brief shining moment, like Camelot. — Donald Jeffries These are […]

The Scam Known as Social Security Trust Funds

A site member posted this: A couple reports by the Congressional Research Service…”Maintaining financial balance after trust fund insolvency would require substantial reductions in Social Security benefits, substantial increases in income, or some combination of the two. The trustees project that following insolvency of the combined funds in 2034, Congress could restore balance by reducing […]

Last Will and Testament

Jesse Cornish was a familiar face in the hard money movement from 1975 until his death in 1986. He was the master of ceremonies of the seemingly endless series of hard money conferences. He was the go-to guy when it came to introducing speakers. Jesse was a Lutheran equivalent of Burt Blumert. Burt was everybody’s […]
