Vaping Deaths: How the Media Misrepresents the “Vape Epidemic”

vaping deaths vape epidemic
Mason Mohon | @mohonofficial

The nanny state is back again, swinging its cudgel of liberty-hating prohibition as forcefully as ever. This time, it’s coming for your Juuls to combat the so-called “vaping epidemic”. Hide your pens and hide your pods because America will soon be going full 18th amendment on your electronic nicotine devices. Online news is all over the phenomenon, but their reporting on the six vaping deaths is far from accurate. Rather, it’s a horrendous misrepresentation that will cost Americans a basic human right.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Take on the Free Market

Michael Hoffman | United States

The privatization of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac seems to be on the U.S. Treasury and Trump administration’s agenda, and with everyone predicting that a recession is on the horizon, it’s starting to feel like 2008 again.

From the Austrian perspective, allowing the Federal National Mortgage Association and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation to revert back to quasi-market-based institutions is optimal because it will open up competition and more realistic price discovery in terms of home financing and real estate prices (though not as much as we’d like to see).

With over 50 proposals to overhaul the real estate market, including a “smaller” role in the housing market for the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the plan seeks to aid those who want to see housing become more affordable. Sounds good right? Not so fast. As the proverbial saying goes, be sure to read the fine print, since no one will be more affected by these potential political and economic changes than prospective American homeowners.

Israelis Had Prior Knowledge of 9/11, FBI Reports Suggest

9/11 israel five dancing israelis
Ryan Lau | @RyanLau71R

Israel has a long-standing history of engaging in deceitful behavior. For years, they have refused to acknowledge the existence of up to 400 nuclear weapons despite a plethora of evidence that the country indeed possesses the bombs. Israel has also attempted to place bombs inside of American, British, and Egyptian civilian targets in the Lavon Affair in 1954. They killed 34 Americans when they attacked the American USS Liberty in 1967. Both countries hastily ruled it an accident, but it didn’t convince everyone. Now, recently discovered FBI documents give eerie information that dwarfs all of these incidents; the files suggest that Israeli nationals working for Mossad had advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks.
