FACEBOOK POSES A THREAT TO EVERY AMERICAN

by Dave Hodges via Charleston Voice

Participation on Facebook could prove very dangerous to your future well-being. There is a reason that Facebook is aligned with both the CIA and the NSA. I have several credible sources tell me that all data posted on Facebook goes into series of cataloged files which culminates with each person being assigned a “Threat Matrix Score”. The mere existence of a Threat Matrix Score should send chills up and the collective spines of every American.

When, not if, martial law comes to America, this Threat Matrix Score, of which Facebook data is used to help compile an “enemies of the state” list, your future longevity could be seriously imperiled. It is too late for people like Steve Quayle, Doug and Joe Hagmann, John B. Wells and myself to avoid being placed on this list. However, it is not too late for the average American to limit their exposure by NOT posting and participating on Facebook. Facebook participation should come with a black box warning:

“WARNING: The views expressed on Facebook can and will be used against you. Participation in Facebook could prove detrimental to the length of your life. All political dissident views are immediately reported to the CIA and the NSA. Risk of repeated exposure on Facebook could result in you and your family being hauled out of their homes at 3AM, separated from your family and sent to a re-education camp”.   

Before you dismiss this hypothetical black box warning as too much “tongue in cheek”, please consider that the NSA is presently extracting large amounts of Facebook data and I do not think they are compiling a Christmas card list.

Facebook’s Welcome Is Wearing Off

Many of us in print and broadcast media are rethinking our association with Facebook. Several of our journalistic brothers and sisters have been censored and/or otherwise treated unprofessionally by this entity. Facebook has become replete with trolls who patrol the cyber corridors of this monolithic entity chastising and censoring whoever exposes the liberal, anti-human, depopulation agenda of the New World Order. Whether it is gun control, criticism of NWO puppet Obama or anything that the alleged grandson of David Rockefeller,  Mark Zuckerberg, and his people disagree with, they will kick your Facebook account to the curb for daring to express a legitimate political opinion.

Facebook’s Zuckerberg, The Self-Perceived Purveyor of Integrity and Morality

Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook emphasized three times in a single interview with David Kirkpatrick in his book, The Facebook Effect “You have one identity, and the days of you having a different image for your work friends or co-workers and for the other people you know are probably coming to an end pretty quickly. Having two identities for yourself is an example of a lack of integrity.”

Who appointed Mr. Zuckerberg to be the moral police and the judge of integrity? It sounds like Zuckerberg can take his place with Soros, Gates, Turner, et al., and the rest of the global elite who think they have the right to treat humanity as their own personal property and view the masses as a disposable commodity.

Julian Assange Assessment of Facebook

Whistle blower, Julian Assange, once stated that “Facebook in particular is the most appalling spying machine that has ever been invented. Here we have the world’s most comprehensive database about people, their relationships, their names, their addresses, their locations and the communications with each other, their relatives, all sitting within the United States, all accessible to US intelligence. Facebook, Google, Yahoo – all these major US organizations have built-in interfaces for US intelligence. It’s not a matter of serving a subpoena. They have an interface that they have developed for US intelligence to use.”

Never before in American cyber-history do we see such an arrogant and agenda serving entity operating their propaganda so far in the open as we do with Facebook. This propaganda end of the New World Order is being blatantly exposed.

Facebook’s arrogance was on full display when highly respected journalist, Jon Rappoport was banned from sharing his articles on Facebook. In this instance of blatant censorship, Jon’s banned article was merely a review of certain aspects of American presidents ranging from Nixon to Obama. Like so many of us that understand history and can see the tyrannical path that Obama is taking us down, Rappoport identified Obama’s unconstitutional missteps. And for daring to tell the truth, Facebook banned Rappoport for the mere expression of a legitimate political opinion.

Readers may also recall when members of Infowars.com and the popular talk show host, Michael Rivero were banned in December of 2012, until the public outcry for Facebook to reinstate their respective accounts backed Facebook into a corner from which they acquiesced and reinstated the previously banned media figures.

Rules For Thee but Not For Me

Facebook does not apply their holier than thou attitude to their own corporate behavior. As Zuckerberg talks about rectifying Americans lack of integrity through timely Facebook exposure, Facebook fails to pay its own fair share of taxes as a result of tax loopholes and deductions.Facebook paid no income tax for the fiscal year 2012, despite reaping $1.1 billion in U.S. corporate profits. While Americans have just been subjected to higher taxes, billion-dollar corporations like Facebook, General Electric, Boeing and Wells Fargo have all been able to avoid paying any corporate income taxes, reports the Citizens for Tax Justice.

Reddit Co-Founder Dissociates From Involvement With Facebook

In an interview with CNN, Reddit.com co-founder Alex Ohanian explains that he won’t be investing in Facebook, the largest technology IPO in the history of the Internet.

Facebook founder, Zuckerberg, had stated, at the time that Facebook first made their public offering, that he expected to make billions of dollars. Ohanian further stated that he would not be investing in Facebook in order to enrich Zuckerberg. Ohanian’s reasons for avoiding Facebook as an investment vehicle is tied to the fact that he strongly believes that Facebook’s stance in favor of the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, CISPA, is very dangerous to the viability of the internet. In other words, Reddit.com’s founder has clearly stated that Facebook is at the vanguard of Internet censorship.

I applaud Ohanian’s stance as it is clear that Ohanian respects free speech. It is safe to say that Facebook and CISPA are two birds of a feather as they both support blatant censorship regarding political views which differ from their own.

Tax evasion, legal or not, seems to be a trait of Facebook personnel, both past and present. Not only does Facebook not pay taxes while the rest of America is suffering under crushing tax increases, Zuckerberg’s former co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, renounced his U.S. citizenship back in August of 2012 in order to pay less tax. I guess that birds of a feather “Facebook” together.

Can it be said that Facebook is a shining example of duplicity and censorship? I think so and I welcome being banned by the monolith because soon  Zuckerberg will learn the lesson the phrase “pride goeth before the fall.” I have long said that Facebook will face some very stiff competition and the millions who have been irritated by the trolls which send warning messages for sending simple personal messages could very well be looking for new jobs.

Technology is fleeting and Facebook could someday go the way of Myspace. I have long advocated that the average citizen needs to avoid the globalist corporate chain stores (e.g. Walmart) and shop locally as much as possible. I think the same could be said about social media sites as well. Why in the world are we posting personal information and our political views on an NSA controlled social media site such as Facebook? To do so, is suicide!

Social media is certainly not for everyone, however, for social media types there maybe an emerging and viable social media alternative to Facebook, known as Seen.is, which is produced by Chris Kitze and operates out of Iceland. You remember Iceland don’t you? The only country in the world that stood up to the “Banksters” by imprisoning many and kicking the rest out of the country. This new social media site could very well could provide Facebook with some very stiff competition in the battle to compete for social media participants.

Conclusion

Although it is too late for me to avoid going on the “naughty list”, due to the fact that my work has been published in thousands of venues, I have come to the considered opinion that the average American is placing themselves on the equivalent of the East German Stasi political enemies hit list by posting political views on the NSA-controlled Facebook. My advice to all unpublished Americans is to immediately cease posting on Facebook, which is a direct conduit to being placed on the proverbial “RED LIST” and seek out alternatives which are  not New World Order friendly.

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersA Handbook for Ranch Managers.  In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualPlanned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers.  Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.

The Forever War

How many times is the uS government going to have to get its ass kicked before it learns? Answer: It will never learn as long as it can print money. — jtl, 419

by Patrick J. Buchanan

The strategy that President Obama laid out Wednesday night to “degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL,” is incoherent, inconsistent and, ultimately, non-credible.

A year ago, Obama and John Kerry were straining at the leash to launch air strikes on Syrian President Bashar Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in “killing his own people.”

But when Americans rose as one to demand that we stay out of Syria, Obama hastily erased his “red line” and announced a new policy of not getting involved in “somebody else’s civil war.”

Now, after videos of the beheadings of two U.S. journalists have set the nation on fire, the president, reading the polls, has flipped again.

Now Obama wants to lead the West and the Arab world straight into Syria’s civil war. Only this time we bomb ISIL, not Assad.

Who will provide the legions Obama will deploy to crush ISIL in Syria? The Free Syrian Army, the same rebels who have been routed again and again and whose chances of ousting Assad were derided by Obama himself in August as a “fantasy”? The FSA, the president mocked, is a force of “former doctors, farmers, pharmacists and so forth.”

Now Obama wants Congress to appropriate $500 million to train and arm those doctors and pharmacists and send them into battle against an army of jihadist terrorists who just bit off one-third of Iraq.

Before Congress votes a dime, it should get some answers.

Whom will this Free Syrian Army fight? ISIL alone? The al-Nusra Front? Hezbollah in Syria? Assad’s army? How many years will it take to train, equip and build the FSA into a force that can crush both Assad and ISIL?

“Tell me how this thing ends,” said Gen. David Petraeus on the road up to Baghdad in 2003.

The president did not tell us how this new war ends.

If Assad falls, do the Alawites and Christians survive? Does Syria disintegrate? Who will rule in Damascus?

The United States spent seven years building an army to hold Iraq together. Yet when a few thousand ISIL fighters stormed in from Syria, that army broke and fled all the way to Baghdad. Even the Kurdish peshmerga broke and ran.

What makes us think we can succeed in Syria where we failed in Iraq.

If ISIL is our mortal enemy and Syria its sanctuary, there are two armies capable of crushing it together — the Syrian and Turkish armies.

But Turkey, a NATO ally, was not even mentioned in Obama’s speech. Why? Because the Turks have been allowing jihadists to cross into Syria, as they have long sought the fall of Assad.

Now, with the Islamic State holding hostage 49 Turkish diplomats and their families in Mosul, Ankara is even more reluctant to intervene.

Nor is there any indication Turkey will let the United States use its air base at Incirlik to attack ISIS.

In Iraq, too, thousands of ground troops will be needed to dig the Islamic State out of the Sunni cities and towns.

Where will these soldiers come from?

We are told the Iraqi army, Shia militia, Kurds and Sunni tribesmen will join forces to defeat and drive out the Islamic State.

But these Shia militia were, not long ago, killing U.S. soldiers. And, like the Iraqi army, they are feared and hated in Sunni villages, which is why many Sunni welcomed ISIL.

A number of NATO allies have indicated a willingness to join the U.S. in air strikes on the Islamic State in Iraq. None has offered to send troops. Similar responses have come from the Arab League.

But if this is truly a mortal threat, why the reluctance to send troops?

Some of our Arab allies, like Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the Gulf Arabs, have reportedly been providing aid to ISIL in Syria. Why would they aid these terrorists?

Because ISIL looked like the best bet to bring down Assad, whom many Sunni loathe as an Arab and Alawite ally of Iran in the heart of the “Shia Crescent” of Tehran, Baghdad, Damascus and Hezbollah. For many Sunni Arabs, the greater fear is of Shia hegemony in the Gulf and a new Persian empire in the Middle East.

Among all the nations involved here, the least threatened is the United States. Our intelligence agencies, Obama, says, have discovered no evidence of any planned or imminent attack from ISIL.

As the threat is not primarily ours, the urgency to go to war is not ours. And upon the basis of what we heard Wednesday night, either this war has not been thought through by the president, or he is inhibited from telling us the whole truth about what victory will look like and what destroying the Islamic State will require in blood, treasure and years.

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

edited by

Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

Is now available in both PAPERBACK and Kindle

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

The Day That Changed Our World – Exposing the 9/11 Lies

I’m sure it is a horrible surprise to you all to find out that your government would lie to you (satirical cynicism in case you didn’t notice). — jtl, 419

 [The following post by TDV Chief Editor, Jeff Berwick]

It has now been thirteen years since the largest criminal conspiracy and attack in modern history was planned and carried out by the “Project for a New America” cabal headed up by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Pearle, Paul Wolfowitz and a number of others on September 11, 2001.

On September 11, 2000, one year before 9/11, this faction, which has taken over the US government, according to retired General Wesley Clark (see video of that below), released their plan, “Rebuilding America’s Defenses“.  This document outlined the need for a “new Pearl Harbor” in order to facilitate the expansion of the military industrial complex and the US empire.

As Clark outlined, within days of 9/11, the orders and plans were already laid out to attack Afghanistan and to “take out seven countries in five years”.  He says, the plans after Afghanistan were, “to start in Iraq and then move to Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran.”

Those plans, so far, have been carried out in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.  And, just yesterday, Obama stated his plans to attack Syria.  The reason for attacking Syria is just as ridiculous and untrue as it was for Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.  This time, they say they must attack Syria because of this ragtag group of “terrorists” which just appeared out of nowhere called ISIS.

Of course, they didn’t really come out of nowhere, the US armed the group now known as ISIS to create chaos in Syria originally, just a few months ago, and now say that they pose a serious threat to the US… exactly like they did with Al-Qaeda.

The plan by PNAC, so far, has worked in that US military spending has grown dramatically since 2001.

Total military expenses of $1.3 trillion per year means that more than half the tax revenue of the US government goes solely to the military.  Total military spending by the US government is nearly more than all other countries in the world combined.  And, military spending by the US and its allies accounts for between two-thirds and three-quarters of all global military spending.

THE IMPORTANCE OF 9/11

Millions of men, women and children have been killed, tortured or displaced all based on the US government’s official lie of 9/11.  Trillions of dollars have been wasted and destroyed and a global police state is being rolled out to protect us from “terrorists”.

The good news is that every year more people wake up to what really happened on 9/11.

One of the most interesting and detailed explanations of it all comes from Barbara Honneger who has done countless hours of investigation into the event, specifically on the bombs that were planted in the Pentagon and reveals a bounty of new information here:

The amount of people waking up to and speaking up about 9/11 continues to grow.  Even in the last few months, Ron Paul has begun to go public questioning the official story of 9/11.  Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth continues to grow its ranks and was recently featured with their information on C-SPAN.  They will also be showing a video replay of WTC Building 7’s demolition on a video billboard near Times Square in New York today.

What used to bring many of us “truthers” ridicule has flipped.  Now those who believe the US government’s official conspiracy theory on 9/11 are the ones being laughed out of cocktail parties.

This is no laughing matter, however.  This issue and its exposure means the difference between a century ahead of pure hell, if not exposed fully, or nearly heaven on Earth, if completely exposed.

Edmund Burke once said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing,” and that is truly the case today.

Will you just go along with this continuing march of tyranny, torture and war or will you say something?  Will you do something?

I will be on Liberty Movement Radio from 6-8pm Eastern today continuing to spread the truth.  Later, I’ll be live on Double Crossed radio from 10-11pm Eastern.

In the future we will all be judged on whether we stood up to evil or not.  It does not take doing very much at all.  It’s as simple as just spreading this information and demanding people in your life look at the evidence and take a stand.

It’s literally the difference between life or death.  It’s your choice.  Choose wisely.

THE MAFIA CHANGES THE RULES OF THEIR EXTORTION RACKET WHEN THEY LIKE

…it is clear, the USSA government has no law, no morals and no adherence even to the basic idea of a contract… even though no one, ever, has signed an actual contract in which they agreed to pay taxes…Businesses and people are fleeing at an epic pace from the US, now nearing Soviet Union style defections.  And, the American public is becoming a laughing stock of the world as they continue to believe they are the freest country on Earth when, in fact, they are about as close to the Soviet Union or modern day North Korea as any other country on Earth.

So those old evil corporations are “shipping jobs overseas” are they? Well it is obvious as to why. — jtl, 419 

 [The following post by TDV Chief Editor, Jeff Berwick]

Yesterday, US Treasury Department Secretary Jacob Lew said that it will decide “in the very near future” if it has the authority to strip tax incentives to American corporations relocating to foreign countries.

Lew is a proponent of such action, believing that US corporations leaving the US for better foreign tax rates, while maintaining headquarters in the US, should be violently opposed. The Obama regime has said it believes such legislative action should be retroactive, and authoritarians in the ranks are rising to the occasion to champion the tyrannical actions.

“The Treasury Department is completing an evaluation of what we can do to make these deals less economically appealing, and we plan to make a decision in the very near future,” according to Lew. “Any action we take will have a strong legal and policy basis, but will not be a substitute for meaningful legislation — it can only address part of the economics.”

Lew placed his own brand of morality onto what are companies that are fleeing the US for lesser-extorted waters.

“This may be legal,” he noted, “but it is wrong, and our laws should change.”

He stated, with our translation in brackets, “By effectively renouncing their citizenship but remaining here, these companies are eroding America’s corporate tax base,” Lew explained. “That means all other taxpayers (extortees) — including small businesses and hardworking Americans (tax slaves) — will have to shoulder more of the responsibility of maintaining core public functions that everyone, particularly US businesses, depends on. We are talking about our national defense (the military industrial complex, Department of Offense), education (citizen indoctrination camps), medical research, courts (private prison and legal complex) and vital infrastructure such as roads, bridges and airports. And if we allow the incentives to pursue these deals to remain in place, we run the risk of undoing the progress we have made to reduce our federal budget deficit (massive multi-billion dollar, unheard of deficits).”

He called for immediate action.

“Only a change in the law can shut the door, and only tax reform can solve the problems in our tax code that lead to inversions,” Lew said.

Lew knows any change to the tax code this year is unlikely, but stressed that inversions are “one loophole that should be shut down immediately.”

“Right now, our tax system rewards US corporations when they buy foreign companies and then declare that they are based overseas,” he said. “By effectively renouncing their citizenship, but remaining here, these companies are eroding America’s corporate tax base.”

He doesn’t mention the fact that no US-based corporation actually thwarts the extortion regime (IRS) in the US.  All of those companies, including Burger King, actually pay these exortion payments for every penny of profit they make inside the US.  What they are trying not to do is to pay the highest corporate tax in the world, in the US, on worldwide profit.

Debate remains over whether the Treasury Department has the power to take away such tax incentives, and especially whether they can make their decisions retroactive.

Stephen Shay, Harvard University law professor, believes the government has the power already to change the way corporations manage their capital. “When the patient is bleeding, you put on a tourniquet,” he said, calling for the US Treasury to take action.

John Samuels, General Electric Co.’s top tax lawyer, disagrees. Such changes can only be made by Congress, he counters.

While Lew had no new ideas, Congress is pushing to close the so-called door on corporate inversions. Out in front with such legislation is Senator Chuck Schumer, who has been circulating a draft bill in Congress to undermine the “earnings stripping” of inversions. His bill is said to be retroactive to deals as far back as 1994.  Yes, 1994…. 20 years ago!  Imagine yourself retroactively changing a contract you agreed to 20 years ago and watch how people laugh at your insistence.  The only difference here is that the US government is the largest terrorist organization in the history of the planet and they will kill or kidnap whoever they need to to enforce their whims.

According to James Lucier, a managing director at research group Capital Alpha Partners LLC, Schumer’s bill “is profoundly unserious and has zero chance of passing. Instead, it is a piece of political theater.”

In recent history, inversions are increasing, with Medtronic Inc and Burger King most recently making headlines. Since 1983 fifty-two big deals have occurred, of which approximately half have been since the 2008-2009 Federal Reserve-caused credit crisis, according to Reuters.

Obama has implored Congress for the past four years to act to curb inversions. Obama has also proposed a so-called “substantial business activities” test denying foreign company status when business operations are still mostly located in the United States and managed by US players.

No matter what the case, it is clear, the USSA government has no law, no morals and no adherence even to the basic idea of a contract… even though no one, ever, has signed an actual contract in which they agreed to pay taxes.

Businesses and people are fleeing at an epic pace from the US, now nearing Soviet Union style defections.  And, the American public is becoming a laughing stock of the world as they continue to believe they are the freest country on Earth when, in fact, they are about as close to the Soviet Union or modern day North Korea as any other country on Earth.

What isn’t noticed by many is that while there have been fifty-two major tax inversions in the US there have been countless private businesses that were either never started in the US or who just moved offshore due to the oppressive anti-business taxation in the US (to find out how to move your business offshore, or start a new one outside of the USSA, contact TDV Offshore).

The fight to stop tax inversions is solely a symptom of The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI) and every action taken by the US government now to “stop the bleeding” will only make the patient bleed more.

Those who recognize this dramatic economic and financial shift before others have the opportunity to not only survive but profit from what is about to become the collapse of the American empire.  Those who remain asleep have what is coming to them.

AMERICA’S BOOK CRITICS, SOVIET-STYLE

The prevalence of “psychopathological mechanisms” is a touchstone of totalitarianism and a measure of how far a society or situation has distanced itself from liberty. Through American history, the distance from liberty has been an ebb and flow.

I recall some time during the mid-to late 50s reading a book with a red cover entitled simply “Brainwashing.” It dealt with the techniques used by the Chinese Communist Army on American prisoners of war in Korea. It was the first time I was ever exposed to the word “Pavlov” and I was horrified. But, never in a million years, did I ever expect to see it happen right here at home.

It is awfully hard to swallow for those of us that are old enough to remember those old black and white WWII movies. Train tearing across Europe. Nazi SS walking down the aisle. He hesitates near a young couple. “Jur papurs plse.” And the theater erupts into a cacophony  of booooo’s and curses. And now, welcome to the real world. — jtl, 419  

The term “psychopathological mechanisms” of dissent describes the political abuse of psychiatry in the former Soviet Union and other totalitarian regimes. Non-approved beliefs, attitudes or behavior are classified as mental problems, which converts them into a medical diagnosis that can be handled in an extra-legal manner. Dissenters or ‘the different’ can be detained indefinitely in mental hospitals where they are drugged or otherwise ‘cured’ into conformity.

Psychopathological Mechanisms in America

If accurate, a news story out of Cambridge, Maryland in late August indicates “psychopathological mechanisms” is in full swing within the US. On August 22, a 23-year-old middle school teacher named Patrick McLaw was placed on administrative leave and taken into custody by police to be psychologically evaluated.

Why? The first reports stated, “Members of the Dorchester Sheriff’s Office, the Cambridge Police Department and…County Public School board have removed…McLaw for allegedly penning two books under the alias, ‘Dr. K.S. Voltaer’.” A police investigation is underway. [Note: the word “alias” connotes crime; “pen name” is the appropriate term for anonymous authorship.]

One novel, The Insurrectionist (2011), is set 888 years in the future and revolves around a school shooting. The Amazon blurb explains, “On 18 March 2902, a massacre transpired on the campus of Ocean Park High School…the largest school massacre in the nation’s history. And the entire country now begins to ask two daunting questions: How? and Why?….[I]t becomes evident that the hysteria is far from over.” (The second novel, Lillith’s Heir, is a sequel.) The Amazon description is correct. The hysteria was just beginning.

The police searched McLaw’s home for weapons; none were found. They searched the school with dogs for bombs and guns; none were found. McLaw apparently does not have a criminal record. According to a local paper, The Star Democrat (April 23), he was nominated last April for Dorchester County’s “Teacher of the Year” award but lost out. Nevertheless, on September 1, Sheriff James Phillips stated that the teacher-novelist “is no longer in the area. He is currently at a location known to law enforcement and does not currently have the ability to travel anywhere.”

After a blitz of media coverage raised constitutional issues, the story offered by authorities changed. The novels became only “pieces of the puzzle” of their investigation. The State Attorney for Wicomico County Matt Maciarello now claims that McLaw drew police attention due to “a four-page letter to officials in Dorchester County.” The 4-pages were apparently a letter of resignation. In a highly unusual and prejudicial move, personal details from the letter were leaked although the authorities will not produce the document itself for independent verification. They will merely leak what is to their advantage.

Bottom line: No arrest was made, no charges were laid, no warrant has been issued and there has been no public accusation that McLaw threatened anyone. He is being held for psychiatric evaluation based merely on the fact that the police are investigating him for what or what may not be a crime.

The prevalence of “psychopathological mechanisms” is a touchstone of totalitarianism and a measure of how far a society or situation has distanced itself from liberty. Through American history, the distance from liberty has been an ebb and flow.

Psychopathological Mechanisms Embedded in American History

From its inception as colonies, the United States has included the political abuse of those who are seen as psychologically deviant. Between early 1692-1693, at least twenty people died because they were accused of violating the orthodox beliefs of authorities; they were called witches which may be as close to a psychiatric diagnosis as that period offers.

The most totalitarian situation or institution America has known was slavery; only the current prison system compares. During this period, the abuse of psychiatry revealed a second purpose; it not only provides social control but also justifies savagery in the eyes of those who commit it.

Consider the psychiatric term “drapetomania.” It refers to a mental illness defined in 1851 by a respected American doctor named Samuel A. Cartwright in order to explain why slaves ran away. His essay Diseases and Peculiarities of the Negro Race stated that fleeing slavery “is as much a disease of the mind as any other species of mental alienation, and much more curable, as a general rule.”  The recommended cure was “whipping the devil out of” slaves as a preventative measure against those who display signs of this impending mental illness.

In his 2010 book The Protest Psychosis: How Schizophrenia Became a Black Disease, psychiatrist Jonathan Metzl explored the 1960 history of the Ionia State Hospital for the Criminally Insane (Michigan), which is now a state prison. The hospital was notorious for diagnosing blacks who advocated civil rights with schizophrenia and confining them for treatment. Treatments could become de facto lifelong sentences without legal recourse. Along with many other state asylums, the hospital was justly closed down during what is called “an era of deinstitutionalization” in the 1970s which came as a result of outrage over the brutal use of psychiatry as social control.

Such use has been gradually increasing. Metzl ascribes much of the increase to successive changes in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) which is published by the American Psychiatric Association. First published in 1952, it is considered to be the definitive guide to mental illness but its definition of mental illness has altered significantly through five editions. A few alterations are praiseworthy, such as the removal of homosexuality as a mental disease. Most of them are dangerous invitations for abuse. For example, the second edition added “hostility” and non-violent “aggression” as symptoms of a mental disorder. The latest edition defines Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). To be diagnosed with ODD, a person must display four manifestations from the following three behaviors for more than 6 months: an angry mood, argumentative behavior, or vindictiveness. The definition is so sweeping and vague that anyone who has a sustained reason to argue with authority could be diagnosed with ODD.

It has become common for courts to order a mental evaluation of those in custody or in family court, whether or not the ‘crime’ is violent. A prominent example is the whistle blower Bradley or Chelsea Manning. In many cases, they provide a legal justification for stripping people of legal rights and credibility. In other cases, authorities simply wish to punish a dissenter and discourage others from acting similarly. An October 9, 2010 headline in Raw Story read, “Cop hauled off to psych ward after alleging fake crime stats.”

NYPD officer Adrian Schoolcraft accused his supervisors’ of faking crime statistics and ticket quotas to make them look better. He backed up the accusations with documents and hundreds of hours of recorded tape which he supplied to theAssociated Press. As a result of his alleged “hostile” behavior, he was taken in handcuffs to a hospital for evaluation.

Pavlov Psychiatric Hospital, Former Soviet Union 

Conclusion

The current call for psychiatric “normalcy” is a call for conformity to and acceptance of the status quo. Dissent or posing a control problem is increasingly seem as an indication of a mental health problem. Nothing else explains the 2012 Centers for Disease Control stats that indicate 13.5% percent of boys from ages 3-17 have been diagnosed with ADHD; 5.4 percent of girls in that age range share the diagnosis. One reason the stats are so high is because public schools and other state institutions want passive obedience, not independence.

The libertarian psychiatrist Thomas Szasz stated, “The concept of disease is fast replacing the concept of responsibility. With increasing zeal Americans use and interpret the assertion ‘I am sick’ as equivalent to the assertion I am not responsible’.” That is the advantage to those who willingly accept the label of “mental illness.” The advantage to authorities is the ability to sanctimoniously control and punish people while shifting the blame onto those being victimized. The trend is all the more dangerous now because Obamacare gives the state incredible power over America’s health care, including mental health.

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersA Handbook for Ranch Managers.  In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualPlanned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers.  Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.

Los Indocumentados: A Surly View from the South

…the numbers and concentrations of Mexicans in America are such that before long  they will be able to  tell Eurowhites to screw off, and form their own society in the Southwest. If that happens, so much for the Union. They know that in 1848 the US stole half of Mexico, specifically those states in which Mexicans are marching toward a majority. (Blowback, do we call it?) Americans, who typically have never heard of that invasion, can say, “Get over it.” Good luck. Young Mexican males, some anyway, are saying things like “We will be the majority. We will rule.”

Actually, that probably wouldn’t be much of a social change here in Texas–especially in South and Far West Texas. Anglos and Hispanics have been co-existing from the beginning. (In fact, the roster at the Alamo includes a large number of Hispanic names.)  –so much so that we have our own unique culture (including language and music) that we refer to as “Tejano.”

And we have other things in common too. For example, just like the Mexicans and American Indians, the Yankee Imperialists took us Southerners’ land (and independence) with military force too.  

And besides all of that, just about anything would beat our current Yankee Occupiers. So there might call for dancing in the streets.  – jtl, 419

by Fred Reed via Fred on Everything

If you want to see why Congress is a zoo, check this. Guam is going to tip over.

A few thoughts for Americans (justifiably) upset by the influx of illegal Mexicans:

First, they come because you invite them. In effect you say, “Diego, don’t you cross that river. If you do, and we catch you, we’ll just put you back across the border and you can try again, perhaps the same night. When you make it across, which is easy, we’ll give you a good job and, depending on where you are, a driver’s license, schools for your kids, welfare, food stamps, and medical care. Any children you have will be US citizens and, as we all know, sooner or later you will have amnesty Now, don’t cross that river, you hear?.”

That’ll work.

Second, they come because you guys changed the immigration laws. Mexico didn’t change your laws. The illegals didn’t change your laws. You did.

Third, you let them stay. You are not deporting them. You encouraged them to come and, when they did, you let them stay, and now you complain that they came and stayed. How sensible.

Fourth, you grouse that Latinos take American jobs. They do not. It is probable that no Latino has ever taken an American’s job. How would he do it? Point a pistol at the gringo’s head and say, “Give me that shovel or I’ll blow you into gruel”?

In fact conservative, noisily patriotic American businessmen give them American jobs. Businessmen know they are doing it. After all, Mexicans are easy to recognize. They are brownish and speak Spanish. These are the same conservative, patriotic etc. who off-whored (that was a typo, but accurate so I’ll leave it) other American jobs to China. They are the same ones who import programmers from India. My country tis of thee….

Fifth, Americans don’t want the jobs that Latinos do. If a young man from El Salvador can come all the way from Central America to harvest tobacco in North Carolina or work in restaurants in Washington, so could an unemployed “teen” from Detroit or Chicago. They don’t, which leaves the jobs to…yes!…Latinos.

Sixth, the federal government is complicit. Obama does all he can to further immigration. Mexicans didn’t elect Obama. You did.

The feds know where the illegals are: You can’t hide an entire agricultural work-force, or construction sites and meat-packing plants manned almost entirely by obvious foreigners. How many Mexicans do you think can go unnoticed in a small Midwestern town?

Do you think immigration a bad thing, mis amigos? You did it to yourselves. And you are still doing it.

Seventh, all the grrr-bow-wow-woof about a border fence is silly. It isn’t going to happen. Republicans will make appropriate noises, but the businessmen who desperately want Mexican labor are Republicans.

Eighth, methinks amnesty is a foregone conclusion. The current racially-obsessed administration may get it through soon, in bits and chunks perhaps. De facto amnesty is still amnesty. A Republican administration may block it for another eight years (while leaving the illegals in  place to work). Yet the illegals are not going to go away, and Latino political power will grow.

Ninth, there will be serious bad blood between black and brown. It is beginning. Latinos already are more numerous than blacks, and become more so daily. The two compete in the same strata of society, and do not like each other. Blacks now have immense political power, but numbers eventually tell.

Further, Latinos seem well on the way to becoming absolute majorities in four states: California (sometimes referred to as North Mexico), Arizona, Texas, and the appropriately named New Mexico, . Think about that.

Tenth, there is grave danger that the newcomers will be corrupted by the American welfare state. Mexicans at least arrive with a strong work ethic. They take any job they can get and maybe a couple of others on the side. When have you seen fifteen members of any other ethnic group waiting outside a Seven-Eleven at five in the morning hoping for work?

But if they find that they can go on the dole and get things for free, they will. Nobody who doesn’t have to will shovel asphalt under a hot sun or stand in two inches of blood in a slaughterhouse ten hours a day. Would you? They seem to be beginning to demand things on grounds of historical mistreatment. Where have we heard this before? The economy probably cannot stand another large dependent class.

Eleventh, the absolutely crucial question is whether they will assimilate, or at least co-exist, or become another self-aware anti-white group. The intense hostility of nativist whites drives them toward confrontation.

How assimilable are Latinos? It is hard to tell. Much depends on the country of origin I think.  I can speak with any degree of knowledge only of Mexicans.

They, the majority of the immigrants, are sort of half European genetically, for what that’s worth, Christian, and speak a European language. In Mexico itself, they maintain a mostly modern society functioning at perhaps seventy-five percent of the declining American norm. Call it sixty, or eighty if you will. How do you measure? But it is clearly, if certainly trailingly, in the European mold of technology, semi-democracy, and ascent into the middle class. Their intellectual tradition—for example, the works of such men as Octavio Paz, Carlos Fuentes, and Alejandro Colunga—are within the European framework, though with a Mexican flavor.

On the negative side, those going to the United States are mostly from the lower half of Mexican society. Though not evil people (crime is low in the villages) they are not ready for American society. While illiteracy is not as common as imagined by gringos, literacy in Mexico is not the same as literacy in Finland. And it is people with a fourth-grade education, not the middle class, who swim the river.

If you want a straightforward idea of how emigration to the US actually works, I suggest Crossing Over: A Mexican Family on the Migrant Trail by Ruben Martinez.

Twelfth, the numbers and concentrations of Mexicans in America are such that before long  they will be able to  tell Eurowhites to screw off, and form their own society in the Southwest. If that happens, so much for the Union. They know that in 1848 the US stole half of Mexico, specifically those states in which Mexicans are marching toward a majority. (Blowback, do we call it?) Americans, who typically have never heard of that invasion, can say, “Get over it.” Good luck. Young Mexican males, some anyway, are saying things like “We will be the majority. We will rule.”

Monument in Guadalajara to Los Niños Heroes, young cadets who died fighting the Americans in the Mexican-American War, in which America annexed the Southwest. There are at least hundreds of Niños Heroes Streets all over Mexico. This explains why Mexicans have little sympathy for complaints that they are illegally entering American territory. They don’t think it is American territory. Payback’s a bitch.

Having become a voting majority in the Southwest, they could choose, piecemeal or all at once, to ignore the central government. Then what? Do you send the Marines to conquer California?

All of this results from American policy. You buttered your bread, a curmudgeon might say. Now lie in it.

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

edited by

Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

Is now available in both PAPERBACK and Kindle

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

THE POLICE STATE VERSUS THE MARKET

Civil forfeiture laws make it so property owners can lose their property for no reason. That’s not hyperbole. No reason whatsoever. The government can steal your property if it says your home has “facilitated” a crime. The government doesn’t sue the owner, it sues the property itself. This leads to bizarre case names: Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. The Real Property and Improvements Known as 2544 N. Colorado St.

So everybody in unison now say, “Thank you Drug Warriors.” It’s time boys. — jtl, 419

The police state has only grown worse in recent decades and there is a nationwide cover up of the true details about how many police officers kill people each year. Many newspapers have recently reported the number as 400, but I highly doubt this is accurate and it seems to me to be grossly under reported. Of course it is coming from the mainstream media. 

A journalist has been attempting a nationwide database on police killings for some time, but the information is not readily available, as I myself have noticed as I have many times tried to find information to bring us such numbers.  As the journalist writes about this experience:

“The biggest thing I’ve taken away from this project is something I’ll never be able to prove, but I’m convinced to my core: The lack of such a database is intentional. No government—not the federal government, and not the thousands of municipalities that give their police forces license to use deadly force—wants you to know how many people it kills and why.”

Killing citizens isn’t the only thing local police is good at. They’re great at theft, too. 

PHILADELPHIA COMING FOR YOUR HOME

The city of Philadelphia is trying to steal Chris Sourovelis’ home, and the homes of thousands of others in Philadelphia.

In March 2014, Chris’s son was caught selling $40 worth of drugs outside of the family home. His son had no previous arrests nor a prior record, but still he was ordered to attend rehab. On the day Sourovelis was driving his son to his first rehab, a frantic call from his wife came through – the police were evicting the family and seizing the house. How? A little known clause known as “civil forfeiture.”

The family was locked out of their home for one week by law enforcement, and the family was only allowed to return home once they banned their son from visiting and gave up some of their human and constitutional rights. The son has since completed his court-ordered punishment of rehab.

“If this can happen to me and my family, it can happen to anybody,” Sourovelis said.

Civil forfeiture laws make it so property owners can lose their property for no reason. That’s not hyperbole. No reason whatsoever. The government can steal your property if it says your home has “facilitated” a crime. The government doesn’t sue the owner, it sues the property itself. This leads to bizarre case names: Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. The Real Property and Improvements Known as 2544 N. Colorado St.

Doila Welch, also of Philadelphia, faces the same thing as the Sourovelis family. Her family home of 17 years is under threat of state-theft because her estranged husband, without her knowledge, sold negligible amounts of marijuana from the home. Welch has not been charged with any crime and her family has joined the Sourovelis family as plaintiffs in a class action against Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is collecting $6 million per year from forfeiture laws. Between 2002 and 2012, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office reportedly stole over 3,000 vehicles,1,200 homes and other real estate properties and $44 million in cash.

Philadelphia is gangster. It’s also taken in $64 million in forfeiture proceedings, equaling one-fifth of the DA’s overall budget. Not only a problem in Philadelphia,  civil forfeiture takes place across the country.

CO-HABITATE, GO TO JAIL

The state doesn’t just steal property. It makes criminals out of peaceful people. Have you cohabitated with a girlfriend or boyfriend? That is, have you lived with someone of the opposite sex? Well, that’s a crime in Florida…

According to Chapter 798 of the Florida Statutes:

798.02 Lewd and lascivious behavior.—If any man and woman, not being married to each other, lewdly and lasciviously associate and cohabit together, or if any man or woman, married or unmarried, engages in open and gross lewdness and lascivious behavior, they shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

That means fine or imprisonment…

The ancient law dates back to more than a century ago when the state wanted to make sure people got permission to be together and marry from the government.  The law is still enforced. According to WCTV, almost 770 Florida residents were charged with misdeameanors for living together from 2007-2011. In an interesting twist, the law doesn’t apply to same-sex couples. 

As the United States has become a police state, new technologies have appeared on the market which aim to help people survive life in the US and western police states.  Here is a list of apps at Cop Block. We highly recommend taking a look there to see if something fits your needs. They include apps which scan police radios, alert you when a police unit is in your area, and other innovative free-market uses. 

Possibly the best of them all is just in the development stages. I interviewed the developer of the Sidekik App which is a great tool to survive the police state.  Imagine that when the police pull you over you press a button on your phone, it instantly begins recording and streaming to numerous secure data banks, records and announces your GPS coordinates and immediately pulls up a lawyer waiting on call who can immediately see what you are seeing and shows up live-streaming in video on your phone.  When the police officer approaches the car you just hold up the phone and tell him, “I have nothing to say to you, please speak with my lawyer”.

Yes, this technology is almost here!  If you or a family member of yours finds yourself in these sort of situations from time-to-time because the police in your region are extra-aggressive, or maybe you have a skin tone other than pearly white or maybe you are under 40 and wearing a baseball cap… you have to get them this app as soon as it is available!  It actually comes free on a pay-as-you-go service or you can just pay a small annual charge if you find yourself in these situations more than once in a blue moon and want the security of knowing the service will be there when you need it.

This interview with the creator of the SideKik app is a must see… if nothing more than it will give you a feeling there is some hope for freedom and humanity.

The government has created a problem: the police.  The reaction has been mostly terror.  And the private market is coming up with non-violent, pre-emptive solutions.

If a few months from now you see a police officer looking disgruntled as he speaks into a mobile phone to a lawyer who informs him his search is illegal and walks away… you can thank apps like this and many more sure to come.

Of course, even being videotaped, livestreamed and facing a lawyer won’t stop even the most bloodthirsty of cops but even in that case it will be clear as the cop becomes aggressive, grabs the phone and the last image is of a police issue boot stomping on it… when they find the victim or body the whole world will already know what happened.

Riots aren’t needed.  Violence isn’t needed.  Private enterprise and crypto-anarchists worldwide are finding solutions to peaceably sidestep state aggression.

DISTINCTIVES – EQUIPMENT AND TACTICS

 by Gabe Suarez via Suarez International10439443_10204003700350802_6850324480126776320_n

Continuing the discussion on what makes us different. This time equipment and tactics.  Other groups will include Aftermath Issues, Personal Tactics and Opsec, and a couple of other things.

EQUIPMENT AND TACTICS

1). Appendix Carry is faster, easier to hide and easier to defend.  Nobody wants to look, touch, or get near another man’s belt buckle.  Keep your gun there, just like the criminals and you will be able to walk into a bar filled with Federales in a third world country, drink an Imperial,  and walk out unnoticed. Ask me how I know….

2). Semi auto shotguns are a better choice than pump actions.  Who still uses those black landline phones anyway.   Assault Rifles are better choices for expected fights than handguns.   Red dots on handguns allow you to be a better shot.  Glocks make life easier for you.  Is this really so hard for people to understand?

3).  More ammo is more better.  You can’t kill the bad guys if you run out.  being able to shoot three more tangoes in the face is better than a speedy reload.  Oh, and nobody ever died from having too many BBs.   Modern 9mm ammo will do just as well as any other caliber.  However…a 32 in the hand beats a 45 in the safe.

4).  On Holsters…if you use them, there is nothing leather will do that Kydex will not do better.

5).  Always carry a reload…and a knife.  Need we say anything more.  Learn to reload without thought and learn to pull the blade the same way.

6).  Slashing is defensive…stabbing is aggressive.  Want to win the fight?  Stab the other guy to the ground.  Thats the way – hard, fast, and continuosly.

7).  The best fight is over before the bad guy know it has begun.  Anyone that teaches that you must yell and announce and all of that jazz is an idiot.  Don’t listen to them.  If you have a need to shoot – close your mouth and press the trigger.  If you are required to have yelled at them prior to doing so, just remember that you were in full compliance.

8).   You don’t want to survive a gunfight.  You might be considered a gunfight survivor yet be in a bed at ICU for the rest of your life.  No…get that survivor crap out of your mind.  Your goal…your over riding goal…more important than policies or laws or even of everything that is right and fair, is to win the fight. By the way, that usually happens when the other guy is dead.

9).   Be generous with your shooting.  One shot is the same price as ten shots, so if you are going to shoot someone who is trying to kill you, do not be a miser with your ammo.  It will be better for you if you win and he does not, and as a result, your story is the only one heard.  Cold blooded and ruthless?  Damn right.  Gotta problem with that?

10).  Practice your draw until it is as natural as scratching your butt.  It doesn’t have to be lighting fast, but it has to be so natural that even a man looking right at you would not realize what you were doing until he was looking down the muzzle of your Glock.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)The Essence of Liberty Volume III: Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic. This is the volume that pulls it all together. With reference to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s description of Murray Rothbard’s work, it is a “unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.” Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.

SOTLOFF VIDEO FOUND BY GROUP RESPONSIBLE FOR RELEASING FAKE OSAMA BIN LADEN VIDEO

This shouldn’t surprise anyone. After all it has been going on at least since the War of Yankee Aggression and probably longer. It is pretty much settled that FDR knew the Japanese were headed for Pearl and ordered the fleet to turn around and return to the Harbor. What I want to know is why are so many youngsters volunteering to fight for a bunch of lying, stealing, bastards like this? — jtl, 419

By KURT NIMMO via INFOWARS.COM

The group purportedly responsible for discovering the Steven Sotloff beheading video is an intelligence asset specializing in war on terror propaganda.

“The video was first obtained by SITE Intelligence Group (Search for International Terrorist Entities), also known as SITE Intel Group, a relatively under-the-radar yet apparently very powerful nonprofit research body that monitors jihadist movements,” reports USA Today. “The Bethesda, Maryland, organization has published a shortened version of the beheading video and published a transcript on its news site, which has been largely inaccessible since news of the beheading broke, likely due to an uptick in Web traffic.”

One of SITE’s founders, Rita Katz, is a government insider with close connections to former terrorism czar Richard Clarke and his staff in the White House, as well as investigators in the Department of Justice, Department of the Treasury, and the Department of Homeland Security, according to SourceWatch. Her father was executed in Iraq as an Israel spy, a fact that suggests a connection to Israeli intelligence.

In 2007, following a series of patently fake Osama bin Laden videos, we reported on SITE’s relationship with the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University. The former dean of SAIS is Paul Wolfowitz, the former Deputy Secretary of Defense during the Bush administration. Wolfowitz is a key neocon and the architect of the so-called Bush Doctrine. Along with fellow neocons Richard Perle, Douglas Feith (who ran the Iraq war propaganda machine), David Wurmser and others in the Pentagon and the administration, neocon insiders advanced the principles of the “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm” document prepared in 1996 by a study group led by Perle for Benjamin Netanyahu, at the time Prime Minister of Israel. “The document created by the Study Group on a New Israeli Strategy Toward 2000 called for overthrowing Saddam Hussein and waging a proxy war against al-Assad in Syria,” we explain in ISIS and the Plan to Balkanize the Middle East.
In 2007 Katz and SITE allegedly discovered and sent to the Bush administration an unreleased Osama bin Laden video. “Katz issued the video via a private link to a SITE web page to White House counsel Fred F. Fielding and Joel Bagnal, deputy assistant to the President for Homeland Security. Within 20 minutes, computers registered to various parts of the Executive Branch began downloading the video, and within hours a transcript referencing SITE had appeared on Fox News. Katz had requested the web page remain confidential, and has reported that dissemination of this information tipped off her Al-Qaeda supporters who had since eliminated the ability of SITE to gather such information,” writes Glenn Zarmanov.

Previous Osama bin Laden videos were released and exploited for their propaganda value by Intelcenter, a private contractor working for intelligence agencies and based in Virginia. “Intel center is run by Ben Venzke, who is an interesting character. A google search results in the revelation that he used to be the director of intelligence at a company called IDEFENSE, which is a verisign company. IDEFENSE is a web security company that monitors intelligence from the middle east conflicts and focuses on cyber threats among other things,” Steve Watson wrote for Infowars.com in 2006. “It is also heavily populated with long serving ex military intelligence officials.”

In 2006 Neal Krawetz did an image-compression analysis on a video released by the Intelcenter and concluded its logo was added at the same time as the As-Sahab logo. As-Sahab is supposedly the video production house of al-Qaeda.

“Al-Qaeda have a long and fruitful history of miraculously releasing video tapes at the most opportune political time for the Bush administration,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote the following year. “Both Kerry and Bush attributed the President’s 2004 re-election to Osama Bin Laden’s appearance in a video tape just days before the vote.”

The same process is now underway with the James Foley and Steven Sotloff videos. Both are precisely timed to coincide with the Obama administration’s scripted response to ISIS and the alleged threat of super-terrorism that begs American retaliation.

On Wednesday, Obama arrived in Estonia ahead of a planned NATO summit in Wales where leaders will reportedly address the “threat of militant Islamists making gains in Syria and Iraq, and the brutal beheading of a second American by ISIS,” according to CNN.

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersA Handbook for Ranch Managers.  In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualPlanned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers.  Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.

How the U.S. Government Tracked Me Overseas

We’ve spent a lifetime invading or bombing countries in Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Middle East and southeastern Europe.
But, but, but…they hate us because we are free, right? — jtl, 419
by Erika Nolan via Activist Post
I was on vacation in Europe recently when I experienced firsthand the extent to which the U.S. government will go to follow and track its citizens. It has made me very grateful that I hold dual citizenship and have a second passport.

This is what happened.

After relaxing along the Adriatic Sea in Dubrovnik for a week, my family and I decided to take a day trip to the Bay of Kotor in neighboring Montenegro. Feeling rather lazy, we opted for a group tour rather than driving south ourselves.

In less than 45 minutes our coach rolled into the large, rather militaristic border crossing between Croatia and Montenegro. Our guide announced that the border patrol officers often waive the tour buses straight through, but that didn’t happen.

Instead, our bus was boarded by two serious looking officers who requested we present ourpassports. As they passed the first few rows, I noticed they were collecting select passports and it caught my attention. The seemingly random collection continued for the next few rows … then I realized the officers were selecting a particular passport.

That’s when I got worried…

As the officer approached my seat near the back of the bus, I caught a glimpse of the navy blue covered passports in the officer’s hand. On a tour bus filled with a mix of German, French, UK, Japanese and American tourists — they were collecting U.S. passports only.

When they got to our row, my husband presented our Irish passports and we received a head nod from the passing officer. We didn’t even have to open them. We then watched as the officers disembarked with U.S. passports and then returned about eight to 10 minutes later to give them back.

Less than five miles later, the same event played out when we reached the border control check point for Montenegro. As an American with dual citizenship, I was uncomfortable watching the U.S. passengers being singled out and having their documents collected while the rest were barely checked.

In this case, thankfully, there were no sinister motives at work as far as I could tell. Once the passports were returned, the bus pulled back on to the roadway.

I asked our tour guide why only the U.S. passports were collected when the officers barely looked at the rest. She didn’t have an answer. Nor did a few other people I asked when we returned to Dubrovnik later that night. But, I have a hunch.

The U.S. Government is Tracking Your Every Move

I doubt that Croatia cares much about the handful of Americans that come to vacation there. Croatia is part of the E.U. and it is simple to cross between E.U. countries especially if you have a passport from one of the 28 nations. And, while Montenegro is not in the E.U., I doubt they care much either.

But, clearly, the border officers had instructions from someone … or somewhere. My hunch is that the foreign countries aren’t interested in us, but our own government is.  They want to know where we’ve been and how long we’ve stayed. Scanning the passport creates an electronic record of departure and entry. It is why the EU passports were skipped.  The U.S. may not be able to see the scan taken in Croatia directly, but Interpol can. And the U.S. has access to that database.

Nearly a decade ago, before I had dual citizenship, I recall coming back to the U.S. after a week-long business trip to Europe. The immigration officer at JFK airport scanned my passport and promptly asked why I traveled so much. I looked at him rather blankly because I wondered why he cared and how he knew. Before I could answer, he rattled off the countries I had just visited as well as the destinations of my last three business trips.

Now with the revelations that the NSA — and probably eight other unnamed agencies wrapped in the Deep State blanket that is modern America — are watching, listening and tracking our activity, our passport information is just another line of data next to our names. We should be very concerned.

The U.S. Has Fallen Out of Favor

We have become a militaristic nation. Our troops are stationed all over the planet. We represent37% of global spending on military, nearly four times the next-closest country on the list — China. Our greatest glories have come from winning a couple of wars; and our greatest humiliations from losing a few. We’ve spent a lifetime invading or bombing countries in Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Middle East and southeastern Europe.

These actions have left angry masses in the wake. Now the American government lives in fear of retaliation from aboard and they fear financial exodus at home. Thus the government needs to track us to be sure we are still loyal patriots and not disguised bad guys. And, they track our every financial move because they need to make sure they don’t lose a cent of revenue that they desperately need to fund their debt problem.

They are paranoid and afraid. More and more of our data is needed to make the American government feel safe.

And once they have cast their huge data web, it will be very easy for them to know, predict and control our every move — all in the name of safety, of course. But not every country has made enemies with the rest of the world.

You hardly, if ever, hear of an external terrorist group targeting Uruguay, Chile, St. Kitts, Finland or Ireland. Countries like those, and many others, don’t need to cast a net around the movement of their citizens.

By the end of my vacation, I was even more appreciative of my dual citizenship. While I have little doubt that the American government is aware of my travels regardless of which passport I use, having an Irish passport has given me the benefit of creating a lower profile — and it’s why you need to hold dual citizenship and a second passport if you don’t already.
