Trump And The Revitalization Of The Sherman And Clayton Antitrust Acts

Trump should revitalize the Sherman and Clayton Antitrust Acts passed in 1890 and 1914, respectively. This is how he can repeal and replace GayMulattocare with something much better for the middle and working classes.

A commenter from Lion of the Blogosphere explains,

Trump needs to enforce the Sherman and Clayton acts against hospitals and insurance companies. That would drop healthcare prices by about 60-80% making insurance unnecessary. Basically prices would return to their 1960s levels relatively speaking (indexed for normal inflation). Medical care outpaced real inflation by 3-9% annually the past 50 years, hence why it’s so expensive now and why there are calls for socializing it.

Trump cratering interest rates by putting an end to the .gov debt machine should also be helpful. Right now we have massive job destruction occurring because of interest rate distortions. Example:

Microsoft purchases LinkedIn in what is probably the most non-accretive deal ever. Who benefits? Microsoft execs. Who suffers? All the people who lost their job due to redundancy. That includes many high paying middle and upper middle class management jobs. Repeat this 1000 times throughout the economy and multiply by unreasonable healthcare costs and you have millions of jobs being restored.

Why does Apple’s CEO need to run a company that runs 40% profit margins and is a $500B cap? What if we had 10 apple’s with a 10% profit margin (down scaled efficiencies) with 10 CEOs making 10% of Tim Cook’s salary?

Velocity of money would skyrocket multiplying GDP by a factor of 2-3 overnight.

There are surely non socialist ways to do this and normalizing interest rates is the first step.

Co-sign. Antitrust should be a priority in the Trump Administration. Enforcing these pre-post-America laws would also go a long way to breaking up the internet and media monopolies, reducing the stranglehold that the shitlib Left has on national discourse. And antitrust would redirect power from traitorous Silicon Valley oligarchs to the rest of the country. It’s all upsides.

Trump, I know you and your people are reading us. We on the alt-right — or heritage America, as I like to call it — want you to be a great President. Not just good; great. You can be a great President, but it will require massive balls to face down the corrupt self-enriching elite establishment for the next eight years. Which I know you have.

***

Reader robpaxton gets at the heart of it.

I don’t care if something is socialist or capitalist. The Age of Ideology is over. The only pertinent question is: What is good for my people?

The Age of Tribes is back. Now is the time for choosing sides.

        In an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes that airs on Sunday – his first since winning the election – Trump insisted that he will build the wall that was a vital part of his presidential campaign. ‘What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million, it could be even three million, we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate,’ Trump said. ..

  3. Other Ideas:

    Media: Open libel laws. Trust bust the media conglomerates. Require all news agencies to report their major shareholders/owners are and who their workers donated to and their percentages as a watermark on every news cast/article.

    Corporations: Trust bust the corporate conglomerates that pushed for globalisation. Paying particular attention to major Democrat donors.

    Social Media: Trust bust facebook and Twitter.

    Colleges: Defund the Humanities and all SJW studies courses.

    Mandate ideological/viewpoint diversity amongst teachers/research grant boards for conservatives to end the bias in funding and research in favour of SJW ideology and against anti-SJW science and ideology. See the stuff written by Jonathon Haidt on this. (http://heterodoxacademy.org/)

    Legislation: Expand discrimination law to include belief in SJWism as racial/sex discrimination against whites/men. Meaning anyone who hires SJW’s or promotes SJWism can get sued into bankruptcy (i.e. Colleges and Government Departments).

    Pass legislation to get Corporate money and special interest/lobbies out of the influence game in politics.

    Retroactively remove birthright citizenship for children born of illegals or use the Supreme Court to interpret birth right citizenship as only apply to those born of parents legally in the country.

    Also obviously build the wall and deport illegals.

    Decrease taxes paid for each child you have as a way to increase white birth rate. Focus the tax breaks on the middle class so we don’t get a champagne/limousine liberal/trust fund baby boom.

    Put Clinton and her surrogates in jail and heavily investigate and prosecute Democrat corruption in media, corporations, colleges and government departments.

    Only allow immigration from culturally similar countries. i.e. UK, Australia, Canada, NZ Europe. (with a bias to the Anglo countries.)

  5. While these anti-trust acts would help, the problem is much greater. Especially at the state level where new hospitals etc are governed by Certificate of Need legislation that gives existing healthcare IDNs & hospitals an ironclad monopoly against competition. Many a physician has wanted to open a specialized hospital/facility that treats specific subspecialties only, where care can be delivered better and much less expensive than existing heritage hospitals. But the effort always fails as the existing care facilities lobby the state govt to deny the issue of a new CON. CON laws are the fat girl friend that cock blocks the enterprising physicians from scoring. Not sure what could be done at the Federal level to take care of this. Healthcare is a hydra with many heads, each one representing a different cause as to why our system is so expensive.

        http://www.scottsmith2016.com/

        We also should all realize that the majority of the debt is held by the FED. They have been issuing bonds and just sticking them in a drawer.

        A understanding of our monetary system in necessary. It’s stupid. The Treasury asks the FED for money and the FED prints up a bond for the principle plus interest. The Treasury then just prints the money. Where does the FED get money from? Thin air. THE most important point you should get from this is that ALL money is debt. If we pay down the debt we will have NO money. All this talk of paying down the debt will never happen because it would extinguish ALL money. I know this sounds stupid but it’s just the way it is. The present system is unsustainable.

        It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that if all money is debt ,the FED gets interest from every single dollar ever issued and the only way you can pay the earlier debt is to go into more debt creating more money then eventually the interest will compound to consume all money. For the people who own the FED this is not a defect it’s a feature. They knew this when they started the system.

        What they have for us next is the same but worse. Special Drawing Rights (SDR). It’s more of the same but global and controlled by???? [others].

    • If you magically took all Jews out of the universities, you would still have universities filled with socialists, whether national or global.

      And breaking up the collusion between mega (((donors))) and the universities will still leave you with mega [[[donors]]] and the universities. As well as the Saudis, who probably give more funding than both ((())) and [[[]]] combined.

      The problem with the universities is the same problem that exists with any system whose funding is not connected to real world results. All federal funding of universities, scholarships, etc. Must be cut off.

      https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/06/12/study-us-higher-education-receives-more-federal-state-governments

      As an example of what is wrong. If the Fedgov is spending more on universities than the local State’s are, then guess who the universities are going to take orders from?

      In this case, because the payout comes from politics, the universities are more concerned with what the fat cats and politicians want, then what the students want. Cut that out, and they will be forced to care a great deal more about being useful.

      Next, you must get rid of all bankruptcy protections for student loans. The banks have been able to give out bad loans, because they know students must repay those loans. And who takes out bad loans? Morons. And what sort of classes do morons take? Womyns’ Studies, Ebonics, Sociology, etc.

      The reason the banks have these protections is so the morons will take useless filler courses that will fund the universities.

      Those apparatchiks that get more funding, get more power in the university, if they get more power in the university they have more political power as the university is part of the political structure.

      So all such protections against Chapter 7 bankruptcy laws have to go bye-bye.

      Once you do both these things, no morons will be able to get loans to go take worthless courses, and the universities will ahve to slim down and focus on being economically competitive to achieve useful results. That is, teach things people who have sane lives think are worth knowing.

  8. This times 1,000! I see it in my own multi-billion $$ corporation as middle management. I see the top executives making obscene amounts of money (including stock options and year-end bonuses) that make my good 6-figure income look like McDonald’s pay – and for making, on the whole, shitty decisions. They act like they created and own the company (like a Bill Gates), but they did not. They were only selected by their club-member, asshole friends (and make no doubt, they MUST be in the same club as I see complete morons bounced around from one VP position to another), and did not create anything. And yet, everyone below needs to “tighten their belts” and “make important cost/budgetary decisions” to save as much money (to increase their bonuses) as much as possible. This is the problem with the GOP (before Trump, at least) – they are aligned with these crooked, worthless business leaders (big $$ contributors), and forgot about the average Joe and Jane out there. Dickheads like Romney just could not get that.

    And these business leaders, are by far, all on board with the diversity (fuck the White man) pogrom that has been in play for the last 50 years (and being planned for 50 years before that).

    As for insurance, I have had a feeling for the last 10 years that high insurance premiums (including COBRA costs) were simply a tool to keep employees in place so that they would not say, “I have enough money to survive for a while, so fuck you and your shitty job”. When one asks, “But how will I pay for insurance for me and my family, and not go into debt if something terrible happens?”, it tends to keep the sheeple in their cubicles.

    And don’t get me started on the supposed insider trading laws! They certainly exist and apply to you and me, but if you think SOBs like Warren Buffet and George Soros don’t pay for information before it is made public to Joe Sucker who plays the stock market, you are naïve.

  9. We can expect Trump to make antitrust moves.

    If the tech industry is smart, they’ll see it as win-win-win: break up the monopolies, reduce the stupid 35% corporate tax rate to 10-20%, repatriate their cash and use the taxes to prevent budget deficit increases. They still get to keep their sizable salaries, just with smaller fiefs.

    Trump has lots of bargaining chips, including the mandate to punish those who continue to invest abroad and export cheap products and services back to the US. Let the Dems run against this; let them argue that 35% tax on nothing is better than ~=15% tax on something.

    • Corporate tax (despite whining from the Left who has used taxes as the teat to suckle the socialist hordes that vote Democrats with various “social programs”) should be close to 0% since it basically amounts to double taxation when the remaining profits are provided to shareholders. And the employees are already paying (too high of) taxes on the income from their work. So why are corporations even taxed at all. 5% tops. Business growth (including from foreign companies relocating here) would go through the roof!

      Problem: “But Johnny, what if a foreign corporation relocated here, and most of its shareholders are not US citizens? No taxes from it being here?”
      Answer: “First off, you could put a low tax cap of 5% on profits from foreign corporations located here, as well. Secondly, as long as they are employing American citizens (there should be rules in place that at least 80% of the workforce – and 50% of management – must be American citizens), the taxes will be received from employment taxes, and the economy will grow as those people have money to spend on services and goods of others.” And that is where the victory comes – not in taxes (which only helps the government and not the economy), but in people being gainfully employed and having spendable income.

But I will not blindly adhere to capitalism just because some financial guru assures em that it is right. There have been recent examples of powerful, European nations which sought to preserve their heritage while utilizing combinations of capitalism and socialism.

      The thing going on here is not “conservatism” as it has been espoused by Republican stalwarts for the last 3-4 decades.
      The reason is that if our American society attempts to digest too much of the wrong demographics and wrong idea-ologies(ie Islaaam) it will die. A dead thing is not thereafter going to be “conserved.”
      Once upon a time, someone said,”It does not matter if it is fixed price or a free market price. What matters is that it is a German price.”
      Even knowing that quote would have gotten me arrested if HRT had won.
      Nonetheless, when biological survival is the question, that is the kind of answer that comes up.
      Hint: If you do not threaten a peoples survival, all this unpleasantness can be avoided.

  24. Brothers, this is OT, but I was driving home from work today, the sun was shining, perfect weather. I was thinking about the night Trump won and I was watching his election HQ. There is a woman in the video, tall, short black hair, wearing white, when our victory was realized and everyone there was cheering, the camera focused on her as she had her hand over her eyes, in joy, as her lips mouthed “oh my God” ever so slightly. As I was thinking this RUSH 2112, “Discovery” was playing on my stereo. I realized I had tears in my eyes. I will never forget that moment. Stay frosty brothers and stick together.

    Zerohedge and RP are right as usual. This is my concern. If Trump can’t resist them then no one can. Truly they feared him because he was someone who thinks for himself.
    I have really enjoyed seeing the cognitive dissonance cluster bomb hit the shitlibs. With that said the neocon deep state is more insidious, dangerous and harder to eliminate.

    • Would be nice if Trump could take on RP in some advisory capacity. It would take a lifetime to catalog the damage done to our economy by distorting the interest rate. It’s the same thing as ObamaCare – you distort prices and you end up with gluts on one side and shortages on the other. Distort the price of money and you propagate the damage throughout the economy. Of course idiotic socialist regulation like the CRA only exacerbates things.

    “The answer is no,” he said, when asked about his campaign trail promise by CBS interviewer Lesley Stahl. “I think I have to take by law one dollar so I’ll take one dollar a year.””

    “Speaking to the entire family, Stahl asked Ivanka Trump if the campaign had hurt the family’s business brand.

    Ivanka Trump replied that she didn’t think it mattered.

    “Who cares? Who cares?” Trump added earnestly. “This is big league stuff. This is our country. Our country is going bad. We’re going to save our country. I don’t care about hotel occupancy. It’s peanuts compared to what we’re doing.””

  37. Comparing medicine now to medicine in the 60’s etc. is a waste of time and pointless. Back then we did not have CT, MRI, Ultrasound and much of the high tech very expensive tools we have now that allows us to diagnose diseases much earlier now than we did half century ago.

    Back then either your malady was fairly simple…a broken bone fixed with a cast, an infection that was cured with antibiotics (before abx resistant bacteria had become commonplace) etc. Frequently if your problem wasn’t simple it was not diagnosed till it was terminal. Not a lot of money spent on healthcare thus costs were low compared to today even adjusting for inflation.

    Now we can find your problem earlier, intervene sooner and if not cure you at least keep you alive much longer…..all at a vastly greater price than the ‘good ole days’.

    So STOP comparing now with then. If you want to go back to the prices of then you must accept the mortality rate and higher death rate from the many things we could not treat or cure then.

    Obamacare is NOT about healthcare….it’s about control of the money spent on healthcare. There is a huge difference between the two.

      1. Death rates for humans are 100%

      2. Do you mean that many people are living much longer than formerly? Well, that’s true but who knows why? But we’re certainly not HEALTHIER than we were in the 1960s.

      And if people are living out their last two years as vegetables in an old-folks-last-savings-extraction-complex, is that really a positive health outcome?

      3. What are the real purposes of the shiny expensive machines and the fantastically expensive drugs? It can’t really be HEALTH because we all already know perfectly well how to massively improve the health of the general public, and it has nothing to do with medical care. It’s what we put in our mouths.

      But you’ll never get the medical establishment to tear down those food pyramid posters that have adorned their waiting room walls these last five decades despite the fact that the more the belief in the food pyramid spread, so did diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and an endless array of inflammatory diseases.

      And then too we must question the role of the medical establishment in turning large sections of the population, including school children, into psycho-tropic drug-dependent up zombies. Never had that in the 1960s. Is that a positive health outcome?

      Big med with its big tools and big propaganda and big prices is no better than big weapons and big press and big education and all of the other big lying fraudulent rackets that pollute our entire society.

      Go back to sixties healthcare? Yes please! Can we also have sixties food and sixties levels of corporate ownership of our entire civic life with all of its lies, some of which it seems have come to pollute this site.
