The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsThis is another one of those laws designed to get around our ex-protections  – articulated in plain English by the Fourth and Fifth  Amendments, parsed into the opposite of their plain meaning by the government’s lawyers, who represent its interests rather than ours – i.e., the Supreme Court.

The vehicle’s passengers’ rights are negated because of something the driver allegedly did. It seems obnoxious because it is – and many people are incredulous when confronted with demands for their ID when they themselves violated no traffic or other law – and hence, have given AGWs no probable cause to search or interrogate them.

Combat Shooter's HandbookWell, the man expressed incredulity  – and questioned the AGW’s demands.

This affronted the Authority of the AGWs, which is the most dangerous “offense” one can commit in the United States these days.

Enough Is Enough

In the face of (1) the recent rise of socialism, that evil, destructive belief-system our fathers and grandfathers fought to the death against in World War II, in Korea, and in Vietnam, and (2) the general collapse in America of the rule of law, the Second Amendment has become especially important to the survival of our nation, our society, and ourselves.
The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits   As Thomas Jefferson once said: “The tree of liberty must be watered periodically with the blood of patriots.” He was right. It is time boys! — jtl, 419

L. Neil Smith at  The Libertarian Enterprise


Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
—The Second Amendment
The United States Constitution

The twenty-seven simple, easily-understood words of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution have not proven clear and forceful enough to protect and defend the right it concerns, especially given its ideological enemies who willfully misunderstand it.

Combat Shooter's HandbookIn the face of (1) the recent rise of socialism, that evil, destructive belief-system our fathers and grandfathers fought to the death against in World War II, in Korea, and in Vietnam, and (2) the general collapse in America of the rule of law, the Second Amendment has become especially important to the survival of our nation, our society, and ourselves. The additional laws (below) are meant to reinforce this all-important Constitutional right.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualBecause “gun control”—a more accurate term being “victim disarmament”—greatly weakens the ability of the people to preserve the security of their free state, any attempt to establish it in the law amounts to nothing less than treason—offering aid and comfort to the many enemies of liberty, both foreign and domestic—for which the traditional punishment is death by hanging. It has been suggested that the customary canvas bag over the head be dispensed with for the occasion, and that a Navy-style execution—where the criminal is hoisted into the air by the neck—be substituted for a more merciful broken neck at the end of a drop through a trapdoor. Treason is not an offense that warrants mercy.

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)  Politicians who, virtually every year since the 1930s, have violated their oath if office by extorting and terrorizing the American people in an attempt to limit or damage their Second Amendment rights—which are supposed to have been secured and guaranteed to them by the Constitution—must, at the very least, be severely fined and imprisoned whenever they introduce, sponsor, pass, or attempt to enforce victim disarmament laws. As has been suggested before, Alcatraz might be reopened as a prison reserved for anti-Constitutional politicians, bureaucrats, and police officers. Tourists on excursion boats might pay handsomely to chum the shark-infested waters surrounding the island. Those criminals who have passed away since committing their crimes must be exhumed and reburied without ceremony in a prison graveyard.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewThe often-touted Heller decision rendered by the 2008 Supreme Court is incompetent and deeply flawed, enshrining, as it does, past infringements on the uniquely American right of the individual to own and carry weapons, instead of properly striking down and abolishing such abominations. It places illegitimate limitations on that right, establishing government powers over it which do not exist within the law, and would not, given proper recognition of the amendment’s purpose.

It is famously true that “The power to tax is the power to destroy”. That being the case, all taxes on the manufacture, distribution, purchase, or ownership of weapons—including edged weapons—as well as ammunition and accessories, must be completely eliminated. Criminal charges must be leveled against all those who imposed them to begin with.

Every federal law that bears on firearms is unconstitutional and must be repealed, rescinded, or otherwise disposed of. State laws are also unconstitutional, but will require separate handling. Not having been mentioned in the Second Amendment to begin with, all “background checks” of any kind, intended to deny rights to those considered “undesirable”—including whatever they happen to have written on social media—must go. Under a proper reading of the Second Amendment, permission need not be obtained from any level of government, to obtain, own, or carry weapons, as this, too, defeats the purpose of the amendment.

It will be a felony, in the absence of due process involving arrest for a proper crime like robbery, rape, murder, or some other heinous act, to seize privately-owned weapons, or to allow them to become damaged in storage by neglect or misuse, to be stolen by corrupt officials, or to be destroyed en masse. Weapons seized in such arrests must be immediately turned over to the arrestee’s next of kin, or stored in a place and manner agreeable to the owner. When a criminal is released from incarceration, having presumably been “rehabilitated” by the system, his full rights must be restored to him, including the right to own and carry weapons.

Generous subsidies and discounts will be paid by the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Departments of Justice and Defense, to any American who acquires and becomes proficient with military-grade rifles, shotguns, and pistols, and who carries them consistently, thereby eliminating skyjackings and reducing domestic crime and the likelihood of foreign invasion.

Finally:

It will be illegal to establish “gun-free” zones, since these inevitably become “self-defense-free” zones and free-fire zones for mass-murderers.

No law shall be made limiting the sale or export of small arms to the residents or governments of other, non-hostile countries.

Unless you are a collector, cataloguing your own collection, an insurer of that collection, or a manufacturer who requires such numbers to manufacture guns, it will be a felony to maintain registries or lists of firearms serial numbers.

The United Nations, which viciously opposes private weapons ownership, will be required to surrender all of its American holdings and exit the U.S., once its outstanding fees and fines are paid in full.

THE SECRETS: WINNING THE AFTERMATH, PARTS 1 and 2

The so-called aftermath. The Aftermath (followed by sinister music) is big business. Like the relationship between doctors and pharma that keeps America sick and drugged, the Aftermath-based businesses help keep America afraid, ignorant, and in real danger of the law after a shooting. Both of those eventualities are not only unnecessary, but also easily avoided.

The 13th Amendment

Americans don’t need to ask what they can do for their country because they don’t owe their government anything. How could Americans possibly owe anything to a government that robs them of their income and wealth, fines and imprisons them for committing victimless crimes, spies on them, regulates every area of their lives, and violates their natural rights and civil liberties?

Governments that force their citizens to take up arms against the citizens of other countries do so for one reason: they are engaging in unjust and immoral wars. Waging war in the actual defense of ones country, home, property, and family does not require conscription. If a foreign army landed on the east or west coast of the United States, the government wouldn’t have to conscript a single American to repel a threat or invasion. Americans would flock to the coasts, and use their own guns and ammo.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits Conscription is slavery. — jtl, 419
By Laurence M. Vance

  Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteAlthough the word slavery does not appear in the body of the Constitution, the “peculiar institution” is alluded to in Article I, sections 2 and 9, and Article 4, section 2. This changed with the adoption of the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution:

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Combat Shooter's HandbookSection 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

The Thirteenth Amendment was passed by the Senate in April of 1864 and by the House in January of 1865. It was ratified by the necessary number of states in December of 1865.

Although the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery, it does not apply to the U.S. government.

The United States declared war on Germany in April of 1917 and declared war on Austria-Hungary in December of 1917. The Selective Service Act of 1917 (enacted in May of 1917) required all males aged 21 to 30 to register with the government in case they were “needed” for military service. The age range was expanded in 1918 to all men aged 18 to 45. Almost three million American men were conscripted into the military by the U.S. government during World War I; that is, they were forced to destroy, maim, and kill for the U.S. government in an unjust foreign war that the United States had no business getting involved in.

In the Selective Draft Law Cases (1918), the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that military conscription did not amount to involuntary servitude. Said the Court’s unanimous decision:

Compelled military service is neither repugnant to a free government nor in conflict with the constitutional guaranties of individual liberty. Indeed, it may not be doubted that the very conception of a just government and its duty to the citizen includes the duty of the citizen to render military service in case of need, and the right of the government to compel it.

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) In Lichter v. United States (1948), the Court declared that “the constitutionality of the conscription of manpower for military service is beyond question.”

The draft ended in 1920 only to be revived again during World War II. Although conscription officially ended in 1973, the U.S. government could re-institute it. The Selective Service System (SSS) is the government agency tasked with registering “every male citizen of the United States, and every other male person residing in the United States” who is between the ages of eighteen and twenty-six.”

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual  Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewFor more than a year now, a bipartisan, eleven-member congressional commission has been trying to answer the question of whether females should be required to register with the Selective Service. The National Commission on Military, National and Public Service recently held a public meeting and issued an interim report.

According to the report, the commission is considering ways to implement universal service, such as:

  • Commit enough resources so that any American with a desire can perform service;
  • Establish a norm for every American to devote at least a full year to either military, national, or public service; and
  • Require all Americans to serve, with a choice in how to satisfy the requirement.

With respect to the Selective Service System, the commission is considering options that could:

  • Expand the registration requirement for the Selective Service System to include women;
  • Identify individuals who possess critical skills the nation might need;
  • Call for volunteers during times of emergency using the existing system; and
  • Incorporate reasonable changes to identify, evaluate, and protect those who object to military service, but are otherwise willing to serve.

A final report will be issued by March 2020. It will include “policy recommendations and legislative proposals regarding the military selective service process and ways to increase participation in military, national, and public service.”

The National Commission on Military, National and Public Service should be called the Slavery Commission. Requiring Americans to perform public service or serve in the military is akin to slavery no matter what the Supreme Court says. Forcing someone to work in a particular occupation—even if you pay him—is wrong, even when the government does it.

Conscription and national service are things that all patriotic Americans should abhor because, as former congressman Ron Paul has well said: “A government that is willing to enslave some of its people can never be trusted to protect the liberties of its own citizens.”

The Libertarian Red Line

I would also say that no political theory based on non-aggression that permits the active or passive killing of people because they are unwanted has any claim of legitimacy.
As would I.
And, sooner or later, justice will be done. If there is such a thing as a “frying pan hell,” these people have earned a front row seat.  — jtl, 419
By Bionic Mosquito via LewRockwell.com

 

Red Line: a limit past which safety can no longer be guaranteed.

The subject of abortion has received some attention lately, what with laws in New York and Virginia and governors celebrating the furthering of liberty to murder human beings.

It is a curious topic among libertarians, a situation where the question of which human has property rights in the womb – the mother or the unborn child.  If it is the unborn child, the mother is inconvenienced for nine-months; if it is the mother, the unborn child is inconvenienced for (usually) not nearly as long…but much more permanently.

I have addressed this as a property rights issue in the past, merely for the sake of argument; the unborn child has the rights to the womb for the natural term of the pregnancy.  However, my fundamental view is grounded in the reality that the unborn child is a human being.

The Ethics of Liberty Murray N. Rothbard Best Price: $13.81 Buy New $14.75 (as of 12:15 EST – Details)

Why do I label it a “curious” topic?  By this, I don’t mean to trivialize it.  I find it curious that a portion of those who claim to adhere to non-aggression consider as acceptable the murdering another human being.  Specifically, in the case of abortion: murdering the only innocent individual in the situation; murdering the one individual in the situation least capable of defending himself.

Certainly for any libertarian who bases his concept of rights in the natural law, it is quite an inconsistency in thought.  There is no liberty at the end of this road.  If a principle of non-aggression cannot see its way clear on the aggression of abortion, it is a theory that cannot stand against any aggression.

Andrew Napolitano has written a piece addressing the current issue.  He offers a couple of concluding statements which well-capture my view on this matter:

No society that permits the active or passive killing of people because they are unwanted can long survive.

I would also say that no political theory based on non-aggression that permits the active or passive killing of people because they are unwanted has any claim of legitimacy.

No society that defines away personhood has any claim to knowing right from wrong.

I would also say that no political theory based on non-aggression and defines away personhood has anything worth listening to when it comes the right and wrong of crossing the line of aggression.

Fortunately, libertarian theory cannot be used as a crutch to support abortion; both on property rights and on murdering of innocents, libertarian theory supports the unborn child.  Unfortunately, libertarians generally claim that the theory is supportive of abortion.

I will suggest that those that do cannot hold claim to the label of non-aggression.  They make a mockery of both the term and of libertarianism.

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualFrom the Editor: I first attended Alan Savory and Stan Parson’s “Rancher School” in Albuquerque, NM in the early 1980s. Since that time, and throughout my academic career, I have advocated, taught and practiced the principles of the “Savory Grazing Method (or SGM)” as it was called in those days. Only a short time after I completed the school, Alan and Stan decided to dissolve their partnership and go their separate ways. Alan founded Holistic Management International and Stan the Ranching for Profit School. SGM (now Holistic Management) is a “method” and “methods” cannot be patented. As a result, the names the principles are presented under have proliferated. Although the fundamental ecological principles have not changed since those early days, we now have managed grazing, planned grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, and perhaps a half-dozen others.

The author admits that to be the “story of his life” and openly shares much of it in this book. Although the book is largely an historically based auto-biography, it is part fact and part fiction. In cases where identities needed to be protected, the “facts” necessary to that end are changed but without altering the accuracy of the description of the event or its historical significance. It is a personal story. It is a cowboy-warrior’s story told in a cowboy-warrior’s language. It is the story of one man’s journey from bondage to freedom and from slavery to liberty. It is the gritty story of this man’s life-long education in the school of hard knocks as his journey took him from a sharecropper’s shack, through the rodeo arena and the boxing ring, across the football field and the drilling rig floor, into the Marines and two wars and ultimately culminating in the university… Read More 

Combat Shooter's Handbook“Owning a handgun doesn’t make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.” – Jeff Cooper Call for a pizza, a cop, and an ambulance and see which one arrives first. In Warren v. District of Columbia the court ruled, and the Supreme Court upheld, that “(T)he desire for condemnation cannot satisfy the need for a special relationship out of which a duty to specify persons arises.” Because the complaint did not allege a relationship “beyond that found in general police responses to crimes,” the court affirmed the dismissal of the complaint for failure to state a claim. The bottom line is that your local police are not legally obligated to protect you, the average citizen. In addition to the Warren case, there are hundreds of court rulings which state that cops are not legally responsible for protecting individual citizens. For example, see Zelig v.
