Why is politics so crazy right now? Why Trump, and why have the Democrats gone loopy rather than develop their USP as the Party of Sanity?

Well, I have a theory, and I discuss it with Paul Jacob, of ThisIsCommonSense.org:

LocoFoco Netcast #23, featuring Paul Jacob.

And of course the podcast is available from Apple and Google and Spotify and Pocket Cast, as well as on SoundCloud:

LocoFoco Netcast #23, LocoFoco.net.

I help Paul with his podcast. Here is the vlog version:

And here is the podcast as hosted on SoundCloud:

There have been a lot of conflicting stories in the news, online, and in rumor, about the fires that have afflicted Washington and Oregon (as well as California) this month. So I talked to someone who was in the thick of it — not burning anything down, but trying to prevent that.

Watch on YouTube, Bitchute and Brighteon:

LocoFoco Netcast #22 . . . talking to “Palmer Road Defender.”

It is also available via podcatcher and at SoundCloud:

I wrote about the fires on September 10, and speculated on the possibility of terroristic arson.

I had a long talk with Stephan Kinsella, author of Against Intellectual Property — but not about IP.

It was long enough that I took an outtake and placed it on LocoFoco.locals.com. The main podcast episode is well over two hours as it is.

But I think you will find it fascinating.

This week’s podcast is up:

LocoFoco Netcast #19, with Robert Wicks.

It is available on Bitchute and Brighteon (though at time of publication, the video was still “processing” on both sites) as well as YouTube:

LocoFoco Netcast #19, with Robert Wicks.

Odd how I don’t promote my own podcast. I never put this up, for example:

LocoFoco #5 — from late March.

It is an expansion of a blog post here.

It is basically a rant on risk in a free society, in the context of the pandemic. This is still relevant.

The podcast is available on Apple, Google, Pocket Cast, Spotify and SoundCloud — click to LocoFoco.net. And it is available on YouTube as a Keynote presentation:

The 18th episode of the LocoFoco Netcast is up on LocoFoco.net and is crawling out to podcatchers:

It is also up in video form on Brighteon and on BitChute. Check them out!

For this episode of the LocoFoco Netcast, co-hosts Timo Virkkala and Lee Waaks query Rocco Lucente and Olof Af Yggdrasil about the nature of the pandemic and its panicky, political reactions.

The podcast, as always, can be found on LocoFoco.net, and with podcatchers such as Apple’s and Google’s, and Pocket Cast and Spotify.

Well, not a “study” so much as merely an example:

So basically Facebook blocks all Brighteon videos. I had merely been trying to share a Styx vid on John Bolton.

How should I express my contempt for the people who run Facebook? They block a whole video source. Because it contains work by people excluded from other sites, such as YouTube and Vimeo. Apparently. (I have not read any of the stories about this.)

I have an account there, on Brighteon. I am trying to upload a video right now. I have not had much success on Bitchute — I upload a video and then it never shows up. But Brighteon hasn’t published my video yet. Says it is “under review.” What? We’ll see how this develops. Finding alternatives to Institutional Evil is a problem. (I have written about it before.)

So, I am abandoning Facebook again for the weekend. I’m on Gab: @wirkman.

And here is me, years ago, irked not about Facebook but by John Bolton:

I make at least one error here. Maybe a big one.

Well, who better to ask than Michael Rectenwald?

So that is just what Lee Waaks and I did in our 14th episode of the LocoFoco Netcast.

Professor Rectenwald was the “Deplorable NYU Prof” who made such a flash a few years ago when he took on the far left political correctness on his campus.

Now he has a new book, Beyond Woke, and a novel in prep, The Virus. From which he reads.
