“The Dow closed down 459 points on Monday. The Nasdaq plunged almost 3% and dropped into the red for the year. Heavy selling in tech stocks left the Nasdaq just shy of correction territory, 10% below its all-time closing high. At one point, the Dow was down as much as 758 points. Market analysts blamed the sell-off on the first day of the second quarter on concerns about trade tensions and President Trump’s attacks on Amazon. … The VIX (VIX) volatility index jumped more than 15%. CNNMoney’s Fear & Greed Index of market sentiment dropped further into ‘extreme fear.’ Crude oil plunged about 3%. Gold, which tends to do well when investors are worried, climbed more than 1%.” (04/02/18)

“Students returned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Monday for the first time since they organized one of the largest youth-led protests in U.S. History, March For Our Lives. The students faced strict new security [theater] measures at the campus, implemented after the Feb. 14 attack by Nikolas Cruz that killed 14 students and three educators. ‘We will have to go through security checkpoints and be given clear backpacks, my school is starting to feel like a prison,’ MSD student Sarah Chadwick tweeted.

“Alexander Mckenzie, a 31-year-old Army veteran who, according to court documents, is being treated for post-traumatic stress disorder, recently had his gun confiscated by the Seattle Police Department even though he had committed no crime. It’s one of 27 guns seized legally by the Seattle Police Department from 16 individuals since last July under Washington State’s new Extreme Risk Protection Order law. McKenzie had been acting strange, glaring at customers of a pizza restaurant while carrying his handgun. He now agrees with the firearm seizure. ‘I’m grateful that the police got the gun away from me,’ McKenzie told Fox News. Washington is one of six states with high risk or red flag laws. But in the wake of the Parkland school shooting, the Brady Campaign says at least 30 states are considering them.” (04/02/18)

5) US regime sues California regime over sales franchise on turf
Source: Raw Story

“In its latest legal salvo against California, the Department of Justice announced Monday it is filing suit against a state law that tries to give California power to veto sales of federal land to private interests. The state law, enacted in March 2017, gave state officials the right to purchase any federal land in California the U.S. government tries to sell to private ownership. About 50 percent of California is public land. Justice officials argue the state law is unconstitutional under the supremacy clause, which says when state laws conflict with federal laws the federal law is the ultimate authority. Federal law says the Bureau of Land Management can select public lands for sale if it meets certain criteria. The litigation marks the second time in a month that McGregor Scott, U.S. attorney for California’s eastern district, has helped launch a lawsuit against the state. On March 7, Scott joined Attorney General Jeff Sessions at a California Peace Officers’ Association meeting to announce a lawsuit against California’s sanctuary policies for undocumented immigrants.” [editor’s note: “Everything the state has it has stolen” … yes, I’m sure I read that somewhere – TLK] (04/02/18)

Source: San Francisco Chronicle

“Political groups backed by the conservative Koch brothers are criticizing President Donald Trump for declaring that an effort to protect young immigrants from deportation is dead. Freedom Partners is backed by the wealthy Charles and David Koch. Its executive vice president is James Davis, and he says it would be ‘irresponsible and represent a grave injustice’ not to compromise with Democrats on permanently protecting young ‘Dreamer’ immigrants in exchange for $25 billion for border security. Trump has rejected such a deal. Officials with Americans for Prosperity and the LIBRE Initiative released similar statements. LIBRE Initiative President Daniel Garza says Dreamers ‘have contributed to our economy and our communities.’ The Kochs didn’t support Trump’s 2016 presidential bid. They’ve previously criticized his immigration stance but have backed many of his other policies.” [editor’s note: I’m now waiting to hear from my “progressive” Koch-hating friends how they reconcile this – SAT] (04/02/18)

“Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has accused the UK and Western partners of playing ‘children’s games’ in their response to the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter. He accused countries of ‘disregarding all accepted behaviour’ and resorting to ‘open lies and disinformation.’ Twenty-nine nations have expelled diplomats over the poisoning, which the UK holds Russia responsible for. Mr Lavrov also issued fresh denials at the news conference on Monday.

“President Trump argued Monday that Amazon’s tax deal is ‘closing stores all over the country’ — continuing his criticism of the online retail behemoth. ‘Not a level playing field,’ Trump also said in the tweet that again suggested Amazon has a sweetheart shipping deal with the U.S. Postal Service that ‘will be changed. Only fools, or worse, are saying that our money losing Post Office makes money with Amazon. THEY LOSE A FORTUNE,’ Trump also said in the tweet. On Saturday, Trump argued that the online retailer’s ‘scam’ shipping deal with the postal service is costing the agency ‘billions of dollars.’ … ‘It is reported that the U.S. Post Office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for Amazon. That amounts to Billions of Dollars,’ Trump said over two tweets. ‘If the P.O. ‘increases its parcel rates, Amazon’s shipping costs would rise by $2.6 Billion.’ This Post Office scam must stop. Amazon must pay real costs (and taxes) now!’ The tweets suggest Trump got his information from The New York Times. The tweet also called Washington Post ‘fake.’” (04/02/18)

9) TX: “Affluenza teen” Ethan Couch released after serving two years
Source: USA Today

“The Texas man known for his ‘affluenza’ defense when he was given probation for killing four people in a 2013 drunken-driving crash was released on Monday after serving two years for violating his probation. Ethan Couch, who is now 20, has almost fulfilled a 720-day sentence for violating his original probation. He was convicted of killing four people in a drunken driving accident in 2013 when he plowed a pickup truck into a group of good Samaritans helping a stranded driver. A psychologist testifying for the defense suggested Ethan suffered from ‘affluenza,’ a term supposedly meant to indicate that because of a wealthy, affluent upbringing devoid of consequences, he wasn’t capable of knowing right from wrong, or fully accepting responsibility. Juvenile Judge Jean Boyd eventually sentenced Couch to rehab and 10 years of probation.” (04/02/18)

10) Time Warner pressure on cable carriers cited as DOJ fights AT&T deal

“The Justice Department, seeking to stop AT&T Inc’s deal to purchase Time Warner Inc, sought to show how often Time Warner subsidiary Turner would threaten to cut off cable companies to win concessions during contract negotiations. The Justice Department has asked Judge Richard Leon, who is hearing the testimony, to order the companies to abandon the deal on the grounds that it is illegal under antitrust law. Coleman Breland, who negotiated distribution contracts for Turner for more than two decades, testified about a series of instances in which the movie and TV show maker threatened to ‘go dark,’ essentially cutting off access to content for various cable providers. Breland acknowledged that Turner’s leverage in contract talks was the ability to cut off access to content, adding ‘usually blackouts are temporary.’ Breland is still with Turner but is now president of content experiences, TCM and FilmStruck.” (04/02/18)

“Electric car-maker Tesla has been admonished by the US watchdog investigating a recent fatal crash involving one of its cars. The National Transportation Safety Board said it was ‘unhappy’ the firm had made public details of the probe. The company had blogged on Friday that the Model X car’s Autopilot self-steering system was in use at the time of the accident. Walter Huang, an Apple engineer, died after his car hit a barrier. Tesla had also revealed that logs from the vehicle’s computer had indicated that the 38-year-old’s hands were not on the steering wheel in the six seconds prior to the collision on California’s Route 101. It said the car had provided several ‘hands-on’ warnings earlier in the journey. In addition, it said that the safety barrier involved had been crushed and not replaced after an earlier accident, meaning it would not have been able to reduce the force of the impact as intended.” (04/02/18)

“A security clampdown and a strike sponsored by separatists fighting against Indian rule shut down most of Indian-administered Kashmir on Monday, a day after deadly protests and fierce fighting killed 16 combatants and four civilians. Armed police and paramilitary soldiers in riot gear fanned out across the region and patrolled streets in anticipation of anti-India protests and clashes. Authorities also imposed a curfew in some towns in southern Kashmir and in the old parts of the disputed region’s main city of Srinagar, the urban center of protests and clashes against Indian rule. Shops and businesses closed in other areas where no security restrictions were in place. Separatist leaders who challenge India’s sovereignty over Kashmir called for a shutdown on Monday to protest the killings.

by Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, John Pilger, et al.

“Citing his critical tweets about the recent detention of Catalan president Carles Puidgemont in Germany, and following pressure from the US, Spanish and UK governments, the Ecuadorian government has installed an electronic jammer to stop Assange communicating with the outside world via the internet and phone. As if ensuring his total isolation, the Ecuadorian government is also refusing to allow him to receive visitors. Despite two UN rulings describing his detention as unlawful and mandating his immediate release, Assange has been effectively imprisoned since he was first placed in isolation in Wandsworth prison in London in December 2010. He has never been charged with a crime. The Swedish case against him collapsed and was withdrawn, while the United States has stepped up efforts to prosecute him. His only ‘crime’ is that of a true journalist — telling the world the truths that people have a right to know.” (04/02/18)

by Jeffrey A Tucker

“Let me concede a point here: it is possible for libertarians overly to simplify social and political dynamics into a clean binary of the state vs. the individual, as if to suggest that there is only one problematic form of power and no other. Being steeped in libertarian literature, you can come away with this impression. But actually, it’s not the case that any major thinker in this tradition (not even Rothbard) ever wrote anything like: ‘The only power in this world that should concern us as human beings is state power.’ I’ve searched writings of hundreds of years and failed to find a statement like this. The focus on the state in this line of thinking is limited to political thought: here the libertarian concern is to reduce the state to the point of elimination if technically possible.” (04/02/18)

24) The persecution of Assange proves him right
Source: Medium
by Caitlin Johnstone

“The online Oxford dictionary defines the word siege as a ‘military operation in which enemy forces surround a town or building, cutting off essential supplies, with the aim of compelling those inside to surrender.’ The strategy dates back to medieval times after the proliferation of the castle, where a defending force could hole itself up inside an easily defended fortress against an invading enemy who would be at a major disadvantage in a direct attack. To get around this, an army who wanted to depose the leadership within a castle or other impregnable construct would simply surround it and refuse to allow any food or supplies to be brought in. With enough patience, those inside would be forced to either starve or surrender. This is precisely the strategy that is being employed against Julian Assange.” (04/02/18)

“Some people are comparing the student protests of today with those that took place in the 1960s. That is pure nonsense. The protests in the 1960s were against the killings that the U.S. government was committing in Vietnam. The protests today are totally silent about the mass killings that the U.S. government has committed and continues to commit abroad and are instead intended to amplify government power by disarming the citizenry. In fact, notice something important about those high school protesters and, well, for that matter, much of the so-called millennial generation — i.e. people in the twenties: While they are understandably angry and outraged over the killing of those 17 students, they are totally nonplussed over the much bigger killer in our midst, the U.S. government.” (04/02/18)

“President Trump came into office showing deep disdain for America’s allies. Mexicans crossing the border were murderers and rapists, and needed to be separated from the United States by a ‘beautiful’ wall. Europeans were deadbeats who relied on America for their defense. Similarly, the South Koreans had gotten rich while letting the US military hold a hostile North Korea at bay. And all of them had built up their own economies through unfair trade deals and on the backs of American workers. That tune barely changed over the course of the president’s first year in office. But lately Mr. Trump seems to have discovered the value of America’s allies near and far.” (04/02/18)

28) Tariffs not best way to protect US steelworkers, global solidarity is
Source: In These Times
by Katy Fox-Hodess

“The enthusiasm with which the AFL-CIO and United Steelworkers (USW) greeted Trump’s announcement of a global tariff on steel and aluminum exports raises significant questions about the U.S. labor movement’s commitment to international solidarity. The USW has a strong record of internationalism. Not only does the USW represent workers in Canada, like many U.S. unions, but it has long supported Los Mineros (one of only a small handful of militant, independent trade unions in Mexico) and has discussed the possibility of a merger. The USW was also the first U.S.-based trade union to make the jump to Europe, in 2008, forming a transatlantic organization with UNITE, the largest trade union in Britain and Ireland. And through international campaigns in collaboration with global union federations (GUFs) like IndustriALL, which bring together trade unions from around the world, the USW has built strong relationships from Germany to Brazil.” [editor’s note: Nice to see a “progressive” who seemingly comprehends something about economics (tariffs are just wrong), even if her actual agenda is otherwise – SAT] (04/02/18)

29) The macabre relationship between Marxism and psychoanalysis
Source: PanAm Post
by Vanesa Vallejo

“Marx understood that antagonisms had to be created in order to achieve his goal. That is why he claimed that under capitalism, the working class was oppressed by the owners of the means of production. The Frankfurt school, now using psychoanalysis, created a new confrontation and thus came to suggest that under the Western culture, all peoples live in a constant state of psychological repression. It should be noted that ultimately what they’re are saying is that the Western culture must be knocked down first in order to then provoke economic change.” (04/02/18)

30) The meaning of American factories
Source: The New Republic
by David Sessions

“Four decades after the first predictions of ‘post-industrial society,’ industrial factories have once again returned to Americans’ collective consciousness. Where they once symbolized power, pride, and progress, they are now icons of decline: jobs lost, communities decimated, a period of prosperity that turned out to be all too brief. In the American Midwest and in pockets across Europe, voters who once supported left-leaning parties have increasingly turned to candidates who promise industrial revival wrapped in ethnonationalism. It’s hard to imagine that these voters are longing for the conditions that most factory workers today are subjected to. In the new centers of industrial production — Mexico, China, and Vietnam among others — factory work utterly lacks the aura it had in mid-century America, and workers endure authoritarian conditions that recall a much earlier period. Meanwhile, many sectors in the United States now subject their employees to industrial-style discipline. The warehouses of companies like Lidl and Amazon combine hyper-regulated, mentally and physically exhausting work with ruthless metrics and pitiable pay.” (04/02/18)

31) Israel kills Palestinians and western liberals shrug. Their humanitarianism is a sham.

by Medhi Hasan

“On Friday, the IDF shot an astonishing 773 people with live ammunition, killing 17 of them. Yet a spokesperson for the IDF bragged that Israeli troops ‘arrived prepared’ and ‘everything was accurate. … We know where every bullet landed.’ On Sunday, Israel’s hawkish defense minister, Avigdor Lieberman, roundly rejected calls from the European Union and the United Nations for an independent inquiry into the violence and insisted that ‘our soldiers deserve a commendation.’ To be clear, then: Israeli troops will continue to murder and maim Palestinians while the Israeli government guarantees that there will be no consequences for their actions. So, where is the outcry from liberal interventionists across the West?” (04/02/18)

32) An ego-pleasing way for Trump to push trade talks
Source: Reuters
by Simon Lester & Inu Manak

“The Trump administration has said that it wants to reduce foreign tariffs and trade barriers. This is a worthy goal because even if average tariffs are generally low, they are quite high for certain products, like apparel and clothing. Unfortunately, the administration’s approach of threatening U.S. tariffs against foreign countries unless they change their trade practices (such as the recent announcement that the United States will level tariffs on $50 billion worth of Chinese imports) is unlikely to work as a pressuring tool. [On Monday, the Chinese government retaliated against Washington by increasing tariffs by up to 25 percent on 128 U.S.-made products.] A better approach, and one that might appeal to Trump’s ego, would be a new round of global trade negotiations. If successful, they would go down in history as the ‘Trump Round’ of trade talks.” (04/02/18)

33) The origins of “militia” in the Second Amendment — it’s not about slavery
Source: Ludwig von Mises Institute
by Ryan McMaken

“While apparently waiting for a taxi, or to be seated for lunch, Larry King was accosted by TMZ in a discussion which eventually led to King declaring that the whole purpose of the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights was to ‘repel slave uprisings.’ ‘What’d they mean by militia?’ King asks, and then answers by claiming that ‘Southern senators’ hatched the idea as a means of keeping slaves down. Normally, the utterings of an 84-year old TV presenter wouldn’t necessitate a column on mises.org. But it turns out that it’s really quite difficult to find reliable online information on militias in the period King is talking about. And, experience suggests, that the more obscure the historical topic one is discussing, the more outlandish claims one can make.” (04/02/18)

36) Is the “liberal world order” worth saving?
Source: Our Future
by Richard Eskow

“Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations, recently wrote a column entitled ‘Liberal World Order, R.I.P.’ Haass sees the post-World War II order succumbing to centrifugal forces. He foresees a fragmented and chaotic world made up of ‘regional orders’ (or ‘disorders’), along with the return of great-power rivalries that some thought had ended with the Cold War. He’s offering a eulogy, but one he hopes will revive the deceased before the burial is final. Haass has a distinguished resumé as a diplomat, Defense Department official, presidential advisor, author, and Harvard lecturer. Few people have achieved as much prominence in the current system of international relations. He writes with the authority of an insider who has stood near the epicenter of global power. But the view from the periphery, where most people live and work, is very different.” [editor’s note: So a CFR source identified the NWO as “liberal” and now Mr Eskow has to comment – SAT] (04/02/18)

37) Constitutional law scholars’ amicus brief in the Travel Ban 3.0 case explains why the Bill of Rights restricts federal power over immigration
Source: The Volokh Conspiracy
by Ilya Somin

“One of the main is issues at stake in Trump v. Hawaii, the Travel Ban 3.0 case currently before the Supreme Court, is whether President Trump’s executive order temporarily barring entry by citizens of six Muslim-majority nations is unconstitutional because its purpose is to discriminate against Muslims, in violation of the First Amendment. The Fourth Circuit court of appeals ruled against this latest version of the travel ban on that basis. The administration’s main defense against this that federal government policy on immigration is largely exempt from the constraints of the Bill of Rights that limit all other exercises of federal power. On Friday, fellow legal scholar Michael Mannheimer and I filed an amicus brief that challenges the administration’s position on this crucial issue.” (04/02/18)

Source: Campaign For Liberty
by Ron Paul

“Since Republicans have held control of the White House and Congress over the last year, federal spending has increased 12.9 percent. Clearly those in Congress serious about reducing government spending are few and far between. The sad fact is that both major parties are happy to increase welfare and warfare spending, although many Republicans pretend to oppose deficits when a Democrat sits in the White House. This puts tremendous pressure on the Fed to keep rates low so as not to increase the federal government’s already high interest payments. This cannot last forever.” (04/02/18)

40) Repeal the Second Amendment? At least it’s an honest demand
Source: Fox News Forum
by Jonah Goldberg

“Two-and-a-half cheers for Justice Stevens! Let me say it up front: I don’t think we should repeal the Second Amendment. But I applaud retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens for arguing that we should. Stevens penned an essay for The New York Times in which he argued that District of Columbia v. Heller, the 2008 decision that recognized an individual’s right to bear arms, was wrongly decided. (He was part of the dissent.) I disagree with Stevens about that, too. But I think he’s right in saying it was at least a ‘debatable’ finding. None of that is relevant to my point, however. I applaud Stevens'[s] essay for several reasons, but chiefly because it is honest. Gun-control proponents often say they favor ‘reasonable’ or ‘common-sense’ measures. And sometimes that’s true. But gun-rights proponents have a reasonable and commonsense suspicion that the real goal is to do away with most or all gun rights entirely. That suspicion is bolstered when every now and then the mask slips.” (04/02/18)

“Utah’s legislature unanimously passed it; the governor signed it — the nation’s first measure protecting what’s become known as ‘free-range parenting.’ It was once known simply as ‘parenting.’ Certain activities are now exempt from a state law criminalizing child neglect. Children may legally ‘walk, run or bike to and from school, travel to commercial or recreational facilities, play outside and remain at home unattended’ — thereby allowing ‘a child, whose basic needs are met and who is of sufficient age and maturity to avoid harm or unreasonable risk of harm, to engage in independent activities …’ Back in the day, we apparently played outside in a sort of statutory limbo. Do we really need a law saying kids can walk on a public street? Sadly, yes: government agencies across the country are grossly violating the most basic rights of parents to rear independent children.” (04/02/18)

44) Trump, Democrats create logjam in confirmation of diplomats
Source: Town Hall
by Debra J Saunders

“What if they had negotiations to prevent a war and nobody came? That’s the prospect staring down at President Donald Trump who says he wants to remake U.S. foreign policy, but doesn’t have a fully staffed army of diplomats and national security figures to lead the charge. Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson two weeks ago and nominated CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace him. Even if a speedy confirmation puts Pompeo in charge at Foggy Bottom in short order, he’ll end up as the boss of a lot of empty seats. The American Foreign Service Association lists 188 ambassadorial positions, but fewer than 75 have been filled. The administration has failed to name individuals to fill the usual ambassador positions except for a number in the high 30s, according to the administration. The White House points the finger at the antics of Senate Democrats for slow-walking the confirmation of able administration picks.” (04/01/18)

45) There’s no ban on studying gun violence
Source: National Review
by Dan McLaughlin

“One of the common talking points that liberals throw around in the gun debate is that Republicans have banned even studying gun violence. So you get headlines such as ‘Lift the Federal Ban on Gun Violence Research’ …. The reality is different, and it illustrates two contending views of how America should be governed. To start with, nobody has been banned from anything, in the way we typically think of government bans. No law prohibits private citizens, universities, private foundations, or state governments from conducting studies of the subject. … the ‘ban’ in question applies only to the federal government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. … So, why are gun-control advocates up in arms (rhetorically) about the CDC? Cue the 1996 Dickey Amendment, regularly renewed by Congress …. This amendment was attached to the funding of the CDC and provided a restriction: ‘None of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.’” (04/02/18)

Given the success of the competitive market economy to ‘deliver the goods,’ it presents something of a paradox. An economic system that has either radically reduced or even in some instances virtually eliminated poverty, that has created widely available opportunities for personal, social and material improvement, and has abolished traditional systems of political privilege, plunder and power-lusting, is still considered by many to be an evil and unjust social system.” [editor’s note: Well, which is it going to be — free enterprise or capitalism?

But rather than embodying the future of the Republican Party, Paul embodies its past …. The GOP finds itself in the throes of a populist convulsion, an ironic product of the fact that the party that long banqueted on resentment of the media now is utterly dominated by the alternative media constructed by its own most dedicated partisans. It is Sean Hannity’s party now.” (04/02/18)

“I’ve noticed a lot of confusion lately, about what factor is responsible for keeping us armed. This article is intended to clear that point up, if possible. Imagine two societies, roughly similar. Society A has a fine constitution which includes explicit protection of the right to bear arms (RKBA). It has a government with at least some attachment to the society at large. It has fine, stately courts backed by centuries of tradition and precedent. It has other fine supporting institutions like police forces and schooling for everyone. It even has communication between citizens, unhindered by government regulation. Society B might have the same sorts of things listed for Society A; or it might not have at least some of them. The one thing Society B certainly does have — missing in Society A — is a determination among a significant fraction of gun owners, say 10%, to kill anyone attempting to confiscate their guns.” (04/01/18)
