On a special September 30, 2014 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I interviewed Waterloo mayoral candidate, Erika Traub.

I extended her an invitation after hearing her on 570 News the previous Friday morning, as she stood out from the other candidates in saying that dealing with homelessness was her number one priority and she explicitly advocated private sector solutions instead of resorting to the usual deflection offered by most politicians of studies and government intervention.

For affordable housing, she described some interesting solutions, advocating local government reducing burdensome parking requirements and reducing development charges.

Election day is October 27, 2014.

I listened to all of Tom Woods’ September 24, 2014 half hour presentation on the depreciation of the Revolutionary War-era Continental currency, fully expecting him to never mention the massive British counterfeiting, and true to my expectations, he didn’t!

This is yet another example of why I am critical of the Austrian School of Economics and the claims of some of its top proponents. At best, this was a sloppy unacademic omission by a Harvard graduate and Columbia University PhD holder who is more than proud to tout himself as a New York Times bestselling author, and at worst, a deliberate omission in order to convince his uncritical audience of his case that the Continental currency and all paper money is inherently massively inflationary and fatally flawed in relation to gold as money.

As I have discussed my radio program before, G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature from Jekyll Island, considered by many in the alternative media to be the top book exposing the Federal Reserve, also conveniently fails to mention massive British counterfeiting of the Continental currency, while, like Tom Woods, also leading people to the illusory “free market gold standard.”

For my extensive collection of articles on prominent Austrian School proponents, see my articles on Gary North, Tom Woods and Lew Rockwell.

Arthur Topham, a Canadian and resident of British Columbia, was charged in 2012 under the Criminal Code with “willfully promoting hatred” for some of his articles at his site, Radical Press.

On September 24, 2014, the Ontario Civil Liberties Association has publicly come out in support of Topham’s right to free expression and has created an online petition that already has nearly 200 signatories in under 24 hours (including myself).

Amazingly, he was charged in part for producing a satirical version of the seriously intended 1941 book, Germany Must Perish!, which actually called for the forced sterilization of Germans, calling it Israel Must Perish!, and replacing all references to Germans with Jews, to show the political and ethnic motivations behind these “hate crime” charges.

He was also charged in part for reproducing the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, despite it being sold on Amazon.ca and in Canadian brick-and-mortar bookstores.

The petition calls upon the British Columbia Attorney-General to retract her consent for the criminal proceedings against Topham, since such consent is required for any “hate crime” charges, directly illustrating the political nature of these charges.

For an extensive interview with Topham on his charges and other issues, see this December 2013 interview conducted by Canadian journalist, Joshua Blakeney.

On the eve of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, I called into Truth Hertz with Charles Giuliani and chatted with him for almost an hourĀ (starting at 13 minutes) about the problems with the official narrative as part of his 8-show series on the 9/11 attacks.

Here is the August 18, 2014 interview that Red Ice Radio’s long-standing iTunes account was banned for posting.

You don’t learn this in the publicly-funded educational system.

Dr. Edwin Vieira, author of The Sword and Sovereignty, was on the Power Hour with Joyce Riley on July 28, 2014, and provided an excellent and concise explanation of “a well-regulated Militia,” with reference to the United States and its Constitution.

- The Department of Homeland Security is unconstitutional
– A “well-regulated Militia” means statutory authorization and regulation by the several States, and doesn’t include privately-run militias
– The definition of Militia is best expressed by the Constitution of Virginia, which is the whole body of the people
– Exemptions could be given to most for completing a first-aid course, for example
– Women originally not part of the Militia because they were not legally emancipated, but would now be considered part of the Militia
– Age restrictions in place (originally up to 44 years old) in the 1700s before modern medicine could alleviate these conditions, and modern society allows individuals to serve in other capacities, like office work
– The National Guard isn’t a Militia, with the proof being that there is no notice given to all citizens to participate in it
– The Militia is intended to “execute the laws of the Union,” meaning that there is to be no federal agencies that perform a police or para-military function outside of the Militia
– Police abuses could be kept in check by the Militia, which is composed of the body of the people
– Constitutional Militias could be brought in any time — the only thing stopping that is the political class and a lack of citizen demand for them from State officials
