Tom WoodsFrom his January 30, 2014 podcast, Tom Woods said, in response to this January 25, 2014 New York Times hit piece against Rand Paul and Mises Institute associates like Walter Block (at 9:47):

“Basically, I don’t talk to the New York Times anymore. They write to me, they want some comment, I tell them no, I’ve been smeared by you guys before.”

Yet, five days after the article, Woods is still touting that he’s a “New York Times Bestselling Author” on the top of his website, and on his Facebook page.

If the New York Times is so bad and has been known to “smear” him and others like Walter Block and Ron Paul, why is he still touting their lauding of his authorship?

Exposing Faux CapitalismOn the June 23, 2013 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb on Truth Frequency Radio, I covered the following articles and video:

Dentist’s decision to fire ‘too attractive’ assistant upheld by court

Here is my commentary on my Facebook group post:

Another case of a false frame by the mass media to pit one group against another — in this case women vs. men. The court ruled correctly, but for the wrong reason. The dentist acted legally in dismissing his “attractive” assistant not because there was no gender discrimination, but because an employer has the right to dismiss employees according to the terms of the employment contracts.

There is no right to privacy by Dr. Walter Block

My Facebook commentary:

Interesting perspective by contrarian Dr. Walter Block, whom I have interviewed on my show. He asserts that there is no right to privacy, and that privacy is only a benefit. This is provocative to some, just as the claim that health care isn’t a right, which I agree with, since it’s a market good, but is Dr. Block right about privacy?

Coast To Coast AM – July 13 2013 – The Federal Reserve – C2CAM Radio DisclosureRadio

My Facebook commentary:

Millions of weekly listeners doesn’t mean you’ll hear informed guests. Take last night’s C2C AM guest, Brad Thor, who falsely claimed that the Federal Reserve is no more federal than Federal Express (in ownership, that’s true, but not overall), and he laughably claimed that Canada is a socialist country vis-a-vis the U.S. (at 1h4m), despite the conservative Heritage Foundation ranking Canada as more economically free than the U.S. for the fourth year in a row in 2013.

Stan MonteithI’m scheduled to be interviewed by Dr. Stan Monteith on Radio Liberty, May 7, 2013, from 6 to 7 PM Eastern, and you can find the listen live and archive links here.

I plan to discuss my thesis that Canada has become substantially more economically successful and free than the United States since September 11, 2001, specifically because of its adherence to U.S. constitutional and governmental principles, and its deviation away from Canadian founding principles of more centralized government.

Previously, I appeared twice before on the show:

November 3, 2011: Championed Canadian political success stories on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith

September 30, 2010: Shot holes in gun control arguments on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith

Previously, I helped arrange interviews for Dr. Stan with libertarian interviewer Jan Helfeld, constitutionalist judge Douglass Bartley, financial analyst Joseph Meyer, Austrian economist Dr. Walter Block, AIDS dissident Dr. Peter Duesberg and author Dennis Marker.

English: This image is of economist Walter Blo...

On the February 24, 2013 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism, I interviewed Austrian School economist Dr. Walter Block, and covered the following issues, among others:

Hour 1: George Whitehurst-Berry back on the airwaves, Jan Helfeld on Radio Liberty, my interview with Doug Newberry & satanic Superbowl half-time show. Hour 2: Interview with Austrian economist Dr. Walter Block on his book, “Yes to Ron Paul and Liberty.

Jan HelfeldI helped to arrange the February 20, 2013 Jan Helfeld interview on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith.

I previously interviewed Jan in the last segment of my February 3, 2013 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism, about his recent interviews with prominent Washington politicians and political commentators about the limited role of government.

Previously, I helped arrange interviews for author Dennis Marker, Judge Douglass Bartley, financial analyst Joseph Meyer, Austrian economist Dr. Walter Block, and AIDS dissident Dr. Peter Duesberg.

Publish or perishIn academic circles, there’s the principle of “publish or perish,” meaning that academics have to regularly publish scholarly articles in order to keep their jobs, whether or not they are quality articles, and that, by implication, quantity is often more important than quality.

Austrian School economist, Dr. Gary North, demonstrates this principle.

His December 28, 2012 LewRockwell.com article, Retired Couple Turn Into World Traveling Nomads, is only 158 words, and looks like the work of a fifth-grader. Here is a sample of his “high-quality” writing:

I like my lifestyle. I spend most of my time in my basement office. I write. I read. I don’t go anywhere.

I would pay a lot of money not to travel. Fortunately, I don’t have to. I get to stay home for free.

My view of travel is simple: if you want to see the world, rent travel videos. Or watch YouTube.

So much for Lew Rockwell publishing North’s articles because they are all high-quality. I first suspected a problem with the quality of some of his articles in 2010 when he claimed that gold coins produced by U.S. and Canada aren’t money, despite being legal tender.

Gary North actually revealed to fellow Mises Institute associate, Dr. Walter Block, that he was even too busy to respond to Dr. Block’s serious questions, because he had to get nine articles a day out the door, as revealed in this June 7, 2012 LRC blog post:

“Walter you ignore the obvious: At zero price, my time is in greater demand than supply. I must pick & choose my responses, writing 9 articles a day (paid subscribers), and being in the final phase of updating my 31 volumes”

Gary North’s focus on quantity over quality is further evidenced by his 1000th LRC article, where he spent more time navel-gazing about his 1000th article than informing his readers of more pertinent information.

For more on Gary North, see my many articles here.

Lew Rockwell Donate Screen ShotEither I hit their paywall, or my IP address was targeted because of previous hard-hitting articles I had written about Austrian economics, the Mises Institute, Gary North, Thomas DiLorenzo, Dr. Walter Block, Lew Rockwell, The Daily Bell and the infiltration of Ron Paul’s campaign, because as of December 31, 2012, I am redirected to their donation page every time I go to LewRockwell.com.

Deleting my cookies doesn’t help — it’s based on my IP address. Apparently they didn’t consider that there are ways of getting around this, and as a result, I will continue to write hard-hitting articles on the above groups and individuals.

While I give them the benefit of the doubt that it’s probably just a secret paywall and not a result of specifically targeting me, I also had given the Daily Bell the benefit of the doubt about their website numbers, only to uncover that they had lied about them.
