The Mask Comes Off: Putrefaction Most Foul

 What would the public do if Trump were robbed of the nomination? What could the public do? There might be protests, mass demonstrations in the streets, but so what? The Insiders’ Club would just wait them out. Once a society realizes that it has no power over its rulers, it lapses into resignation….But the mask would be forever off. Very, very off.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) I love it: Donald Trump’s campaign reveals the establishment for what it is, a swamp of corruption  as fetid as those of Latin America. It is better entertainment than Vaudeville. The frantic scramble to rig the primaries, change the rules, and thwart the voters–anything to defend their cozy entanglement of political tapeworms–makes absurd any pretense of democracy.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)   This morning in the Drudge Report: “Trump Highest Number of Republican Voters in History.” Who do the Republicans want to get rid of? Trump.

On the same page a poll reports Trump tied with Hillary nationally. Who do the Republicans want to get rid of? Guess.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)It’s wonderful. The GOP is looking for someone that Hillary can beat. She would squash Kasich or Cruz like stepping on bugs. Trump might actually win. This the Republicans strive to avoid. What could make more sense?

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsBut it does make sense. The Republicans try desperately to ditch the only Republican candidate who could win the Presidency because…Hillary is one of them. Because, as every sentient being has by now noticed, the Republicans and Democrats are members of the same corrupt club of blood-sucking parasites, the action arm of the corporations, Wall Street, the Israeli lobby, and those who want the US to control the world at any cost–except, of course, to them. They are panicked at the rise of someone who might put first the interests of America. Better Hillary, a fellow parasite, than Trump, who isn’t.

A Handbook for Ranch ManagersPlanned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewThe latest skulduggery is the Virginia governor’s allowing convicted felons to vote. The obvious intention is to increase the black vote for Hillary. In  Chicago, the dead vote. In Virginia, the killers. This sort of thing of course explains the support for Trump.

Will  the two parties succeed in blocking the Donald? Might they even resort to the Martin Luther King solution? My powers of political prognostication would be under zero if they could figure out how to get there. If the felony vote and delegate-tampering bring Trump to the convention with only 1236 delegates, and the Republicans broker-in some sad-sack compliant loser, well, the mask will be definitively, openly, for all time off. Welcome to  Paraguay.

Which would be only another step in the country’s race toward the Third World.

What would the public do if Trump were robbed of the nomination? What could the public do? There might be protests, mass demonstrations in the streets, but so what? The Insiders’ Club would just wait them out. Once a society realizes that it has no power over its rulers, it lapses into resignation. Republicans do not loot malls or burn cities, and would soon go home. But all the world would see that the Americans have no recourse, that the Insiders do as they please. Welcome to China.

But the mask would be forever off. Very, very off.

If the Republicans deep-six Trump, and Hillary runs against Kasich, or or Cruz, or some other derelict, what then? Our choices will be not to vote, which will make no difference, to vote for either of the party candidates, which will make no difference, or to vote for Trump if he runs as a third party, which will make no difference. But at least we will have seen under the log, the squishy pale  creatures scurrying. They will keep their grip on the country, but the world will know them for what they are.

And America for what it is: Corrupt to the roots of its teeth.  The corruption is adroitly hidden, yes, or disguised as something else. Yet it is there. Consider the subprime disaster. To believe that it was an accident, or a cyclical downturn, or other artifact of econobabble, one has to believe that bankers, realtors, and Wall Street do not understand mortgages, credit, or defaults. You have to believe that officials of the Treasury, who slide back and forth between Wall Street and government like the motion of the tides, had no idea what was going on.

At the top, America is as corrupt as Mexico but American corruption is far more efficient. Among the white middle class, the rot is less. But within the clubhouse of insiders,  at the level of the anointed, of the Adelsons and Epsteins and Clintons and Bushes, there is putrefaction most foul.

It is cleverly done, and seldom involves anything so sordid as open bribery. Yet the results are everywhere. Men who knew exactly what they were doing engineered the student-loan bubble. Yet it is legal, like so many scams. Huge military contracts for things not needed, the near-control of Mid-Eastern policy by Israel, poor medical care at high prices, the deliberate gutting of American industry so that corporations can enrich themselves in China–all of this is legal. You pay Congress and it makes legal anything you want.

Credit cards, which  intentionally lure people into going deeply in debt and paying usurious interest rates, are legal. Big Pharma paid Congress to rule that Medicare cannot negotiate the price of drugs, opening a sluice to the Treasury. Corruption, but legal.

Under the rule of the Insiders Club, medical care is a fecund source of legal graft.  Example: I once needed eye drops from Bausch and Lomb called Muro, which amounted to hypertonic salt water. A bottle of 1.8 (I think it was) ounces  cost $23 in Washington, $19 in Winchester, Virginia.  Exactly the same product in Mexico, $6. Price-fixing, but where and by whom? What Congressmen were paid to make it legal, or not look into it too closely, or at all?

Welcome to Guatemala.

Corruption has come to be the purpose of government, and the Club battens on it. You want to see the political equivalent of a public latrine in Uganda? Try HUD, the Department of Housing and Urban Development. I promise that you will be horrified by the diversion of funds and lining of pockets.

You ask, Fred, why do you say this? Are you a student of HUD? No. I know nothing of HUD. I know much of government. HUD  is an outfit with over thirty billion a year to spend, completely unwatched. Have you ever seen a newspaper story about HUD? I guarantee that it is dominated by the sacred ethnic groups who milk it like a prize Guernsey, and by big companies getting sweetheart contracts.

Or try Commerce, or Education, or the Bureau of Indian Affairs, or Congress.

It is to preserve these overflowing rice bowls that we have elections without substance between candidates without a difference. Hillary is just Jeb Bush in a dress, Biden a universally applicable cipher, Cruz a compliant applicant for membership in the club. Since the parties collude in avoiding issues that people care about, the contest becomes a popularity contest of the sort found in middle school. Whoever wins, the Insiders win.

Of course Trump also is a billionaire,but he is a turncoat, a class traitor, the Benedict Arnold of billionaires. He addresses the issues that the Insiders want to remain unaddressed. He is indeed dangerous. He threatens the endless (immensely profitable) wars, the endless (immensely profitable) shipping of American jobs to China, the endless (immensely profitable) importation of cheap Mexican labor. He threatens the sacred rice bowls.

It is why he must be stopped.

Decline of the Anglosphere is the Result of Deliberate Planning

It has long been clear…that the world is organized by the same forces that have placed monopoly central banks in almost every country…We call this organization and its outcomes “directed history.” Events occur and then are acted upon. But neither the events themselves, nor the subsequent actions are unplanned…The animating goal of these events is ever-increasing internationalism… Those organizing the increased internationalism put a great deal of time and energy into making the evolution seem unintentional. It is constantly portrayed as a trend rather than a strategy.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsI’ve got news for them. Had it not been for the White Male of Western European origin (especially from the Anglo-sphere), the rest of the world would still be digging tubers out of the ground with a pointed stick. And the world needs to get over it. — jtl, 419

STAFF NEWS & ANALYSIS
By Daily Bell Staff

Barack Obama and the end of the Anglosphere … When supporters of the Vote Leave campaign sketch out a future for Britain outside the EU, they often point to the Anglosphere of English-speaking nations — bequeathed by Britain’s imperial past. So Barack Obama’s intervention in Britain’s EU referendum last week was a potentially devastating moment for the Brexit campaign. – Financial Times

Combat Shooter's Handbook This fascinating article openly explores the diminishment of Anglosphere power. It is especially important because it positions the subsiding as an evolutionary trend rather than what it really is: a deliberate policy.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute And it does so within the context of Brexit – the upcoming vote in Britain on whether or not to stay in the EU.

But the article’s ramifications go far beyond Brexit. It is as if the topic of Brexit is being used as a launching platform to present a much larger repositioning of the Anglosphere itself.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)Much of the article is devoted to the reality that we often document: Economic and financial power is moving away from the A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewWest toward the East.

Of course, as it is being presented by the Financial Times, the article only gives us part of the story.  What we see as programmatic and deliberate, the article portrays as coincidental and unorganized.

More:

In reality, no special explanation is needed for Mr Obama’s remarks. It has long been US policy to support British membership of the EU. Yet the Brexiters are on to something in a broader sense.

For all the ritualistic tributes to the enduring nature of the special relationship, something has changed during the Obama years. That shift is a growing awareness in both Washington and London of the rise of Asia, which has made both the US and the UK reconsider their approaches to the world — and each other.

You see? Once again the world’s trends are presented as unplanned and evolutionary.

Here at DB, for nearly a decade-and-a-half, we’ve made the argument that the world’s economic and sociopolitical evolution is anything but unplanned.

It has long been clear to us that the world is organized by the same forces that have placed monopoly central banks in almost every country.

We call this organization and its outcomes “directed history.”

Events occur and then are acted upon. But neither the events themselves, nor the subsequent actions are unplanned.

The animating goal of these events is ever-increasing internationalism.

Those organizing the increased internationalism put a great deal of time and energy into making the evolution seem unintentional. It is constantly portrayed as a trend rather than a strategy.

This Financial Times article is perfect example of how this occurs.

More:

The signature foreign policy initiative of the Obama years has been America’s “pivot to Asia”. Amid all the turmoil in the Middle East and Ukraine, the US president has remained grimly, stubbornly, determined to devote more of his country’s diplomatic, military and economic resources to Asia…

The article goes on to say that America’s “biggest trade priority” is Asia. It mentions the importance of the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal between the US and Asia that “now awaits ratification.”

We also learn that “the Cameron government has been conducting its own pivot to Asia.” This is being done “even at the expense of ties to the US.”

Again, the emphasis on Asia is portrayed as ineluctable. It is an evolution of necessity. Nothing  that could have been foreseen.

Yet if one examines the history of Asia, it becomes clear that those countries that make up Asia, including China, are products of Western influences and systems.

That’s not the impression being given by this article.

The text even mentions that “elite educational ties” shall strengthen with Asia, perhaps at the expense of Anglosphere relationships. And we learn that the “rise of Asia” is also having an impact on countries such as Canada and Australia.

The article concludes as follows:

Still, any Brits who feel nostalgic for the Anglosphere … might reflect how much they still benefit from the cultural power of the US. The traditional Anglosphere may be in disrepair. But a different sort of Anglosphere has emerged in Brussels, with English now the common language of the EU institutions.

So the circle is closed! Those who are pro-Brexit should look to the EU to salvage and enhance Britain’s role in the world. As Anglosphere power diminishes, European clout must inevitably take its place.

Conclusion: Thus the argument for globalism is constructed. There is a great deal of difference between an evolutionary trend and what we call “directed history.” Plan accordingly.

Unhappy America: Will The United States Collapse Due To An Internal Societal Meltdown?

Just like during the days of the Roman Empire, most Americans cannot even conceive of a time when America will be no more.  And yet we can all see that the foundations are being constantly chipped away at…Will we be able to survive once our foundations are totally gone?

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsMost all societies can recover from an economic melt down. No society can ever recover from a moral-cultural melt-down–and that be where we be right now.

The only answer is separation. — jtl, 419

By Michael Snyder, via End of the American Dream

Combat Shooter's Handbook  Are we witnessing the beginning of the end for the United States of America?  All great nations eventually fall, and the United States is not going to be any exception.  Many of those that write about the decline of our once great country tend to focus on external threats, and there are certainly many that could be talked about.  But perhaps even more ominous is the internal societal meltdown that we see happening all around us.  According to Real Clear Politics, recent surveys show that 67 percent of Americans believe that the country is on the wrong track, and only 26 percent of Americans believe that it is headed in the right direction.  So even though we are tremendously divided as to what the solutions are, the vast majority of us can see that something is deeply, deeply wrong with America.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute Personally, I spend a lot of time writing about our economic problems.  We have piled up the largest mountain of debt in the history of the planet, last year the middle class became a minority for the first time in our history, and 47 percent of all Americans couldn’t even pay an unexpected $400 emergency room bill without borrowing the money or selling something.  But I don’t want to focus on economics in this article.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewNeither do I plan to focus on our political problems.  The fact that somewhere around half the country plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November shows just how far gone we are as a nation.  And the Republican Party is essentially just a watered-down version of the Democrats at this point.  On average, Congress has just a 14.5 percent approval rating, and yet we keep sending the same corrupt politicians back to Washington D.C. time after time.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  What in the world is wrong with us?

Physically we are a giant mess too.  According to USA Today, the obesity rate in the United States has more than doubled over the past 25 years, and the OECD has found that the U.S. has the most overweight population in the entire industrialized world by a wide margin.

But our physical problems are not going to be the focus of this article either.

Instead, I want to focus on what is going on inside our heads and inside our hearts.  I want to focus on our mental, emotional and spiritual problems.

Alvin Conway of The Extinction Protocol has been chronicling global disasters for years, and he has just posted an insightful piece in which he comments on the growing social decay that we see all around us…

According to Covenant Eyes, an internet search group, 1 out of 5 mobile searches on the internet involves pornography. Illegal drugs continue to be both manufactured and transported into the U.S. with no apparent way of halting or stopping the flow. In the US alone, more than 15 million people abuse prescription drugs, more than the combined number of people who reportedly abuse cocaine, hallucinogens, inhalants and heroin. If the war against drugs can’t be won, what luck will we ever have winning the war on terror? Does anyone remember who won Lyndon B. Johnson’s famed war on poverty? Regardless, let’s throw some more taxpayers’ money at an issues that money along can’t fix.

Later in his article, Conway goes on to link this social decay with the spiritual decline of our nation…

According to Pew Forum, the number of people who claim to be religious in America is declining as the country becomes more and more secular. “Research Center finds that the percentage of adults (ages 18 and older) who describe themselves as Christians has dropped by nearly eight percentage points in just seven years, from 78.4% in an equally massive Pew Research survey in 2007 to 70.6% in 2014. Over the same period, the percentage of Americans who are religiously unaffiliated – describing themselves as atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular” – has jumped more than six points, from 16.1% to 22.8%.” The U.S. is beginning to look more and more like ancient Rome before it collapsed.

I agree with Conway.  America is starting to look more and more like the Roman Empire just before it collapsed.

A nation is only as strong as its population, and right now we are quite a disaster.  According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the suicide rate in the United States has spiked to the highest level in almost 30 years.  The following is an excerpt from a Washington Post article entitled “U.S. suicide rate has risen sharply in the 21st century“…

The U.S. suicide rate has increased sharply since the turn of the century, led by an even greater rise among middle-aged white people, particularly women, according to federal data released Friday.

Last decade’s severe recession, more drug addiction, “gray divorce,” increased social isolation, and even the rise of the Internet and social media may have contributed to the growth in suicide, according to a variety of people who study the issue.

That same article goes on to say that the suicide rate in this country increased by a whopping 24 percent from 1999 to 2014.

Is that a sign of a healthy nation?

At this point things have gotten so bad that even 70 percent of our pastors are battling depression.  The following was authored by respected journalist Jennifer LeClaire

There is no lack of statistics about pastors and depression, burnout, health, low pay, spirituality, relationships and longevity—and none of them are good. According to the Schaeffer Institute, 70 percent of pastors constantly fight depression, and 71 percent are burned out. Meanwhile, 72 percent of pastors say they only study the Bible when they are preparing for sermons; 80 percent believe pastoral ministry has negatively affected their families; and 70 percent say they don’t have a close friend.

The Schaeffer Institute also reports that 80 percent of seminary and Bible school graduates will leave the ministry within five years.

We are a deeply, deeply unhappy nation, and we have been trained to turn to pills as the solution.

According to research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, 59 percent of all U.S. adults are on at least one prescription drug at this point, and 15 percent of all U.S. adults are on at least five prescription drugs.

Those are absolutely astounding numbers to me.  We are the most drugged up nation on the face of the planet, and yet we just keep on getting less happy.

Here are some more selected numbers from a previous article that back up that claim…

Back in 1987, 61.1 percent of all Americans reported being happy at work.  Today, 52.3 percent of all Americans say that they are unhappy at work.

A different survey found that 70 percent of all Americans do not “feel engaged or inspired at their jobs”.

One survey of 50-year-old men in the U.S. found that only 12 percent of them said that they were “very happy”.

The number of Americans diagnosed with depression increases by about 20 percent each year.

According to the New York Times, more than 30 million Americans take antidepressants.

Doctors in the United States write more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants each year.

The rate of antidepressant use among middle aged women is far higher than for the population as a whole.  It is hard to believe, but right now one out of every four women in their 40s and 50s is taking an antidepressant medication.

Compared to children in Europe, children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants.

In America today, there are 60 million people that abuse alcohol and there are 22 million people that use illegal drugs.

America has the highest rate of illegal drug use on the entire planet.

America has the highest divorce rate in the world by a wide margin.

America has the highest percentage of one person households on the entire planet.

100 years ago, 4.52 people were living in the average U.S. household, but now the average U.S. household only consists of 2.59 people.

We are more isolated, more lonely and more miserable than we have ever been before.

But does that mean that we are on the verge of collapsing as a nation?

Just like during the days of the Roman Empire, most Americans cannot even conceive of a time when America will be no more.  And yet we can all see that the foundations are being constantly chipped away at.

Will we be able to survive once our foundations are totally gone?

We are legally required to submit and obey.

To decline – even to the extent of backing away and trying to exit the situation – constitutes the legal pretext for the application of whatever force they deem necessary to obtain our submission and obedience.

So, what do we do?Winston diary

We cannot fight them.

We must therefore learn to avoid them.

I bought a top-drawer radar detector (Valentine 1) for exactly this reason. It has greatly reduced my interactions with Enforcers of the Law – and not just in terms of “speeding” tickets, though that’s huge, too.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewThe detector also alerts to the presence up ahead of “safety” and “sobriety” checkpoints in time to avoid them. That is to say, in time to turn off the road or turn around before it’s too late to do so. That being defined as getting within a few hundred yards, at which point it will either no longer be possible to discreetly turn around/off (no place to do so) or doing so will arouse “suspicion” and that will result in an Enforcer coming after you.

This by the way has nothing whatever to do with a desire on my part to drive “drunk” and “get away” with it.

dnews Cottonwood Height check pointI hardly drink alcohol at all and never operate a vehicle when I am impaired by alcohol.

My problem is with the presumption of impairment and with this business of having to demonstrate to the satisfaction of an Enforcer that I am not “drunk” – as opposed to the reverse.

Also, I simply do not want to have to talk with these thugs. Keep in mind that “safety” and “sobriety” checkpoints are pretexts for other forms of harassment, such as whether you happen to be wearing a seatbelt, whether all your state permission slips are in order and up to date; whether they can find some minor thing (burned out light over your license plate) that becomes another excuse to extract money, etc. It’s an opportunity for them to search you and your person essentially at will. Whether they “find anything” is beside the point. It’s an indignity – and outrage – to be handled by a costumed goon; to be compelled to let said goons rifle through your vehicle and things … just because they can.

These “checkpoints” are therefore best avoided altogether.pig detector

A radar detector is very helpful in this regard – because the Enforcers usually leave their radar on and the detector will squawk a warning, giving you the all-important handful of seconds necessary to evade and avoid.

Another form of tactical avoidance is to limit driving home late at night – when it is more likely that you will encounter an Enforcer and more likely he will focus on you because there will likely be fewer and maybe no other drivers on the road.

Similar logic recommends driving with the pack.

Avoid being the lead car. Do that and you are basically walking point. Not a good idea. Fall back, blend in. This decreases the odds it will be you that’s selected for Enforcement.

It is smart policy for the same reason to drive an unremarkable car. Sedans are better than coupes; bland colors preferable to bright ones. Older better than newer… but not too old. A five or six year-old Camry or Accord or similar – in white or silver or beige – is ideal.

Do not customize the exterior of your car.Room 101

This makes it both stand out and makes it specifically yours. It is much harder to claim: “It wasn’t me, officer” when yours is the only car around with that particular style of aftermarket chrome wheels, heavy tinted windows with graphics, etc. And if you do elect to flee – a not-unreasonable decision these days given the over-the-top punishments meted out (vehicle impoundment, arrest, likely jail time) for such “offenses” as driving even 1 MPH faster than 80 MPH on a highway with a posted speed limit of 70 MPH (yes, really) it will be easier to get away if your car is one of dozens just like it in the immediate vicinity.

Avoid blatant challenges to the Law such as a very loud exhaust. Do not provide them with the pretext they need to initiate harassment.

The idea is to avoid even being noticed in the first place.

Remember Winston in Orwell’s 1984. He’s the model. And he would never have seen the inside of Room 101 if he hadn’t gotten stupid and started writing that diary… .

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsThe Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits. Although woven around the experiences and adventures of one man, this is also the story of the people who lived during the period of time in American history that an entire generation was betrayed It is the story of the dramatically changing times in which this personal odyssey took place. It is the story of the betrayal of an entire generation of Americans and particularly the 40% (of the military aged males) of that generation that fought the Vietnam war.

Breaking News via Southern Heritage News and Views

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteThe Southern Poverty Law Center, a very powerful & influential organization that is working to eliminate all public symbols of the Confederacy, has released it’s report detailing all of the “publicly supported spaces dedicated to the Confederacy.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3) The report, titled “Whose Heritage? Public Symbols of the Confederacy,” is like an anti-Confederate heritage activist’s guide book. It’s main feature is the state-by-state listing of more than 1,500 sites that honor the Confederate States of America, but also includes plenty of propaganda that attempts to tie the Confederacy & it’s symbols to racist ideology and groups / individuals that support such evil. It also has a six-page “community action guide” with tips and suggestions to aid those around the country who would seek to tear down all memorials to our heritage of honor.

Every SCV Camp & Compatriot needs to read this. It’s a playbook for the opposition, and we must be prepared to deal with whatever they throw at us. I’m providing the link to where you can download the report. Just scroll down towards the bottom of the linked page and download the free PDF file.

Now–Culturally Marxist Currency!

 Suffice it to say there are culture-changing reasons why Ms Tubman is about to replace Andy Jackson on the twenty. Andy Jackson is not politically correct (culturally Marxist) and Ms. Tubman is. But they are going to keep Alexander Hamilton on the ten dollar bill. He is politically correct as the promoter of the first national bank, so the feds don’t really want to remove him.

But even for that, they plan on making some changes to the ten spot, and to the five dollar bill as well, although I don’t expect they will remove from the five dollar bill the portrait of the president who was a favorite of the Marxists and socialists.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View And the War rages on! — jtl, 419

by Al Benson Jr. via The Copperhead Chronicle

Right after he was awarded the presidency of this country Obama said that he was going to “fundamentally transform” the United States. People could only guess what he meant by that, but those that knew anything of Obama’s real background had deep suspicions that whatever he was going to do, it wasn’t going to be good. Their suspicions have been more than justified. His transformation agenda (the agenda of his handlers) has been at work transforming the culture of this country. In fact, you could say that American culture has been emotionally and physically assaulted under “his” regime.Combat Shooter's HandbookNow he and his handlers will further assault the culture by changing the design of the country’s currency. You all have read by now about the new design of the twenty dollar bill and other bills that will be undergoing the Obamaite “transformation.” The new currency designs to be foisted off on the public in the near future are living proof that the cultural Marxists will literally push their agenda in every area of our lives in an attempt to convert the sleeping public into accepting their pernicious theology.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute A main “cornerstone”  of their theology is an abolitionism morphing into a “civil rights” movement. And it’s all part of Karl Marx’s “reconstruction of a social world” that Donnie Kennedy and I took note of in our book Lincoln’s Marxists. 

Our august Secretary of the Treasury has dutifully informed us that the picture of Andy Jackson on our twenty dollar fiat currency bills will soon be replaced with a simply glowing portrait of Harriet Tubman, one of the movers and shakers in the “underground railway” before the War of Northern Aggression.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsThe Underground Railway, we have been told, was a system of “safe houses” from places in the South leading all the way up through the Northern states and into Canada. Supposedly friendly Southern abolitionists helped the escaping slaves to go north where a friendly, virtuous Northern population awaited their arrival with open arms. They teach some of this in many of the country’s public school “history” texts.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3) Suffice it to say that “it ain’t quite so.” Writer Michael B. Chesson is a professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and he specializes  in the history of the American “Civil War.” He wrote an authoritative article for The Textbook League which appeared in their newsletter, Volume 12, Number One. Check out http://www.textbookleague.org  Professor Chesson noted several history books that promote this line about the Underground Railway and he noted the inaccuracies in all this regarding Harriet Tubman.

Andy Jackson is not politically correct (culturally Marxist) and Ms. Tubman is. But they are going to keep Alexander Hamilton on the ten dollar bill. He is politically correct as the promoter of the first national bank, so the feds don’t really want to remove him.

But even for that, they plan on making some changes to the ten spot, and to the five dollar bill as well, although I don’t expect they will remove from the five dollar bill the portrait of the president who was a favorite of the Marxists and socialists.

The Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, has said, in part: “The new $10 bill will honor the story and the heroes of the women’s suffrage movement against the backdrop of the Treasury Building…The new $10 design will depict that historic march and honor Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Alice Paul for their contributions to the suffrage movement.?

It’s interesting that Mr. Lew neglected to mention the connections of Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton with the Spiritualist Movement during the latter part of the nineteenth century. If you can find a copy of the book Radical Spirits  by Ann Braude that will give you some insight into the Spiritualist Movement and its connections with the “women’s rights” movement. The early feminist movement was riddled with Spiritualism. This is something else the “history” books have mostly forgotten to mention.

After neglecting to mention all that, Mr. Lew moved on to inform us that the new five dollar bill, in addition to keeping the portrait of the Marxist’s favorite president, “will depict the historic events that have occurred at the Lincoln Memorial.” Lew noted that, in 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. gave us his “I have a dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial. Lew noted that, on the back of the five dollar bill, they will start featuring leaders of the civil rights movement. That should be interesting. I wonder which ones they will pick–they can’t go too far in hardly any direction without bumping into someone with Communist connections, not that this would bother them, as long as the public at large can be kept in total ignorance about it. With our current public education system that should be no problem.

So we have finally gotten to the point where all the culturally Marxist leftist aberrations will now be commemorated as healthy and normal on our currency. Former history will be erased  and some of the prize agendas of the cultural Marxist Movement will be enshrined on the currency, complete with anti-counterfeit strips. What more could you ask for?

I just wonder what they will end up doing with the one dollar bill. After all, George Washington WAS a slave owner. Maybe, they can find some way to get someone like Pol Pot, the great Cambodian “liberator” onto the one dollar bill. Undoubtedly he would be quite acceptable to the cultural Marxist crowd and they could then get rid of that picture of that nasty old Southern slave owner. After all, we have had presidential candidates whose citizenship in this country has not been beyond question, so why not a known Communist on the one dollar bill? Our currency (notice I have not called it money) has become a major propaganda tool for the One World government crowd. Unfortunately, most people probably will not even notice. Unfortunately, their children and grandchildren will–and the knowledge won’t be positive.

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.

Federal Judge Promotes Cultural Marxism in Mississippi

…what about the dignity of all those citizens of Mississippi and other places who have had ancestors that fought in the Confederate armies? Are not those of us who have Confederate ancestors due the dignity of celebrating and remembering our ancestors and trying to educate others as to what that War was really all about–and it wasn’t “racism” and slavery. Those that promote that line either haven’t done the historical homework or they hope you haven’t.

Combat Shooter's HandbookYep, and now, the most lied about part of American History, is being exploited by the Cultural Marxits and used as a weapon in their war on our Culture.– And I remain  UN- reconstructedly yours–jtl, 419

by Al Benson Jr. via revisedhistory.com

Just because you are a federal judge doesn’t mean that your rulings have to make any sense. All it means is that those rulings have to conform, above all, to the prevailing political theology. And the prevailing political theology (and it is a theology, make no mistake) is that any and all things Southern, white, and Christian must be uprooted from any and all places, starting in the South, and replaced with cultural Marxism.

  The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsCultural Marxism IS the new political theology in this country and it will prevail no matter who ends up being president (Hillary) or how many states Trump gets stolen from him by the Republican Establishment, because both Republican and Democratic Establishment members are all avid practitioners of the religion of cultural Marxism. They live for it. As for the desires of the voters who pay the bills, they are absolutely last on the cultural Marxist list, if they even make it onto the list.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteSo it comes as no surprise that a black federal judge in Mississippi has issued a statement that the Mississippi state flag is now to be considered “anti-American.” In Judge Carlton Reeves’ fractured thinking the flag is anti-American because it represents those “who fought to leave the United States.” Does it surprise anyone that this man was appointed by Barack Obama to be a federal judge? It shouldn’t. This is the caliber of Obama’s appointees. The Great High Priest in Washington only selects those who will minister his decisions favorably in his churches (courts) so when I first read the article about Reeves’ stand on the flag in Mississippi the first thing I did was to check to see who appointed him.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  This is the same judge who ruled in November, 2014 that Mississippi’s same-sex marriage ban violated the Due Process and Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. Had he not reflected Bishop Obama’s theology he wouldn’t have gotten appointed. He was confirmed in the U S Senate in December, 2010 by a voice vote, which means your slightly-less-than-honest senator can come back home and lie to you about having voted for him and there is no record of it.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewBut now we cut to the chase. Reeves issued his flag ruling in a lawsuit brought by Carlos Moore, another black lawyer from Grenada, Mississippi. Moore is asking Reeves to declare the Mississippi state flag “an unconstitutional relic of slavery.” While Reeves isn’t saying yet whether he will fully consider Moore’s lawsuit regarding the state flag, if you have half a brain you already know the answer.

And Moore’s rationale for all this is, get this, if the U S Supreme Court last year effectively legalized same-sex marriage all across the country, then the Constitution protects “a fundamental right of dignity and the state flag violates his dignity as well as that of other blacks. So, in order to get rid of this fundamental lack of black dignity we have to get rid of the present state flag. Replacing it with one with a hammer and sickle on it would probably be considered appropriate. Such a flag would truly reflect the theology of cultural Marxism.

Back last summer, after the orchestrated Confederate flag purge had begun I wrote an article for this blog spot entitled “Is the Confederate Flag Becoming Illegal?” Maybe some folks thought that was a bit over the top, but here, less than a year later, we have a federal judge who is perilously close to declaring a state flag with the St. Andrews Cross on it to be “unconstitutional” and therefore illegal. Folks, if you all follow some of this stuff, you know we are not making it all up!

Interestingly, Attorney Moore feels the Mississippi state flag violates his “dignity.” Well, I’ve got a question–what about the dignity of all those citizens of Mississippi and other places who have had ancestors that fought in the Confederate armies? Are not those of us who have Confederate ancestors due the dignity of celebrating and remembering our ancestors and trying to educate others as to what that War was realy all about–and it wasn’t “racism” and slavery. Those that promote that line either haven’t done the historical homework or they hope you haven’t. For those wanting a good history lesson as to what the War was really all about I would point you to an excellent article by Dr. Donald Livingston on the Abbeville Blog for April 15th. You can check it out at http://www.abbevilleinstitute.org

Dr. Livingston gives you some of the history you will never see in the “history” books Keep your eye on what happens in Mississippi in the next few weeks, and what happens with the cultural Marxist agenda as the warm weather approaches and the paid protesters don’t mind getting out and doing their thing. If you think last year was bad, then I think you’ve not seen anything yet. And there are lots of us in the South that won’t take our Confederate flags down no matter what these two black judges come up with.

Rights Versus Wishes

  (A) “right” is something that exists simultaneously among people. As such, a right imposes no obligation on another.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) It is especially shocking for libtards to find out that no one has any kind of “right” to NOT starve to death. That is because, the exercise of such a right would give the person a claim on the life of someone else. Ethically, no one has any such claim–we call that slavery. — jtl, 419

By Walter E. Williams  via LewRockwell.com

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)  Here is what presidential aspirant Sen. Bernie Sanders said: “I believe that health care is a right of all people.” President Barack Obama declared that health care “should be a right for every American.” The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops: “Every person has a right to adequate health care.” President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in his January 1944 message to Congress, called for “the right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health.” And it is not just a health care right that people claim. There are rights to decent housing, good food, and a decent job, and for senior citizens, there’s a right to prescription drugs. In a free and moral society, do people have these rights? Let’s look at it.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3) In the standard historical usage of the term, a “right” is something that exists simultaneously among people. As such, a right imposes no obligation on another. For example, the right to free speech is something we all possess. My right to free speech imposes no obligation upon another except that of noninterference. Similarly, I have a right to travel freely. Again, that right imposes no obligation upon another except that of noninterference.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsContrast those rights to free speech and travel with the supposed rights to medical care and decent housing. Those supposed rights do impose obligations upon others. We see that by recognizing that there is no Santa Claus or the tooth fairy. If one does not have money to pay for a medical service or decent housing and the government provides it, where do you think the government gets the money?.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewIf you agree that there is no Santa Claus or tooth fairy and that Congress does not have any resources of its very own, the only way for Congress to give one American something is to first take it from some other American. In other words, if one person has a right to something he did not earn, it requires another person’s not having a right to something he did earn.

Let’s apply this bogus concept of rights to my right to speak and travel freely. Doing so, in the case of my right to free speech, it might impose obligations on others to supply me with an auditorium, microphone, and audience. My right to travel freely might require that others provide me with resources to purchase airplane tickets and hotel accommodations. If I were to demand that others make sacrifices so that I can exercise my free speech and travel rights, I suspect that most Americans would say, “Williams, yes, you have rights to free speech and traveling freely, but I’m not obligated to pay for them!”

As human beings, we all have certain natural rights. Of the rights we possess, we have a right to delegate them to the government. For example, we all have a natural right to defend ourselves against predators. Because we possess that right, we can delegate it to the government. By contrast, I do not have a right to take one person’s earnings to give to another. Because I have no such right, I cannot delegate it to the government. If I did take your earnings to provide medical services for another, it would rightfully be described and condemned as an act of theft. When government does the same, it’s still theft, albeit legalized theft.

If you’re a Christian or a Jew, you should be against these so-called rights. When God gave Moses the eighth commandment — “Thou shalt not steal” — I am sure that he did not mean “thou shalt not steal unless there is a majority vote in Congress.” The bottom line is medical care, housing, and decent jobs are not rights at all, at least not in a free society; they are wishes. As such, I would agree with most Americans — because I, too, wish that everyone had good medical care, decent housing, and a good job.

The Best of Walter E. Williams

Better Late than Never

Due to a number of things (terribly busy, senility, laziness to name a few), on April 19th I neglected to keep with a long time tradition at FlyoverPress.com. Well, better late than never, or so they say.

I am often asked why I end my posts with the numbers 419. Well…

419 stands for April 19th—a date upon which occurred several important events associated with the fight against tyranny. The first was the “shot heard ‘round the world” at Concord Bridge in 1775. The final assault on the Jewish Warsaw ghetto (1943) and the coup d’etat in Laos (1964) occurred on this day. More recently April 19, 1993 was the date when the final assault on and murder of the Branch Dividians in Waco, Texas occurred. It was also the date in 1995 of the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. And this past year (2015), it was during the time period when Oregon and Nevada ranchers were in the process of reviving the Sagebrush Rebellion. A time during which we saw the cold blooded murder of Levoy Finicum by the FBI. 

Yours for freedom in our lifetimes. — jtl, 419
