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.

COUNTER PROTEST DRIVING

…understand that we have been at war with the Jihadist in America for 17 years or more.  And that is an active and ongoing war.  But what we are seeing now from the left suggests that the “cold war” between the right and the left is heating up and will continue to do so.
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)
If you live in rural America, be thankful but don’t be complacent. — jtl, 419
Protesters

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)   We see them all the time now.  Americans kicked out the communist government last November and began taking steps to make America great again, and the left is catatonic.  It is like an unending Rodney King Riot in some places.  And everyday we are informed of militant leftist terrorists or militant race terrorists acting out with violence against those whom they perceive as the enemy.  Some well respected authorities have even suggested that while we have been in a sort of “cold civil war” for some time, this is the beginning of a shift to a “warmer” version.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)One of the left’s tactics is the blocking of roadways in some hope of somehow causing those who voted out communism to recant in order to shorten their commute.  In reality it is creating more and more antipathy for the left by true Americans.  But let us discuss some points of Counter Protest Driving.

I can’t wait to get hate mail from the snowflakes.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsFirst is the vehicle.  If you have a choice, avoid the little ecologically-responsible roller skate cars that are so cheap to drive.  If that is all you can afford, there is no shame in that but understand that people will respect a Ford or Chevy truck far more than a Scion or a Prius.

Keep the damn thing gassed up and in good working order. Keep a Go-Bag with you in the front seat if driving alone, or easily accessible if driving with others.  Avoid car pools where some timid flower child is driving.  Drive yourself.  We live in a time of war and a new front just opened up.  Drive yourself!

Combat Shooter's Handbook The Go-Bag, incidentally, should have a second pistol (first one on your person right?), extra ammo, a roll of cash, a couple of bottles of water and some food, a small medical kit, and anything you might need if you were required to abandon your vehicle and fight your way to safety.  I like to keep other weapons in my vehicle and I will take them with me.  Things like an AR Pistol have been useful, but in the context of the article, perhaps one of those Pistol Grip 12 Gauge “firearms” might be an interesting choice…specially in light of the riot atmosphere.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteAlso, understand that the vehicle is to a degree disposable, insured, and replaceable.  If you decide to abandon it, grab the Go-Bag and leave it.  But you don’t want to do that unless it is no longer moving and staying with it is untenable.  Initially the vehicle is both your greatest asset and most potent weapon.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers  Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewSecond is intelligence.  Know your route to and from. One of the things I do everyday is check my news feeds while I drink coffee.  Anything that may affect my evil plans that day is noted.  So if you see “At 0800 HRS on Ho Chi Min bridge, the local chapter of the BLM will hold a violent riot”, maybe selecting a different route is in order?  Sure I am being a bit silly as you won’t see a headline like that but there are many indications that may lead you to surmise that traveling in a certain area during certain times may be best avoided.

Good intelligence leads to good tactical choices.  No intelligence leads to all manner news stories where you are the victim.

The guys that say they have a right to go where they want and that the thugs have no right to do this are right, but we live in a time of war and the Trump election created a new enemy for prosperous hard working Americans…the armed and indignant militant liberal.  Plan accordingly.

Connery

Third is Getting Your Mind Right.  Getting your mind right involves the previously discussed material plus what you intent to do.   I am reminded of Connery’s role in the Untouchables.  “What are you prepared to do?”  Figure this out right now, not when a hoard of anti-Trump savages are overturning your Prius.

In order of escalation:

1).   Avoid the road where any protest is planned.  Some times this will be easier than others.

2).  If the police are there…its their gig.  Stay out of it.

3).  Your safety and that of your vehicle surpasses the importance of traffic laws.

Denny-beating2

Now a little more relating to the “You Are Stuck There And it Was Not Avoidable”.  There is a difference between being delayed by the antics of these “flower children”, and being attacked by a mob. It is important to not over react.  but also important to not be stuck on stupid when they flower children turn into a legitimate riot with you as the focus. Above is an image of Reginald Denny being physically pulled from the vehicle he was driving.  Do you think that truck would have had any issues breaking through any barricade?  Here is what he looked like afterwards.

Reginald-denny

1).  Don’t be afraid to drive on the sidewalk to avoid having to drive over people.

2).  Don’t be afraid of damage to your vehicle. The car can be repaired, you cannot be.

3).  Carefully use the vehicle to advance through.  It is very hard for anyone…no matter how much they want to, to stop a motor vehicle moving steadily forward even at 5 MPH.  In fact, simply take your foot off the brakes and let the car coast through their line.  If one of them decides to lay across your path, that sounds like suicide to me.  Understand that when you try this, they may escalate.

4).  We hear all sorts of stories about people en route to the hospital with an injured party…or an ambulance en route with a critically sick person being delayed in one of these impromptu blockades.  So again I ask you, what are you prepared to do?  If you are transporting an injured or sick family member and their survival depends on a timely arrival at the hospital, drive right through their lines.  Do not allow the blockade to keep you from your mission.

5).  Once attacked, and you will know when that is, step on the gas and drive right through their lines – 15 to 25 mph.  At that point the only people that should matter to you are the ones in your vehicle.  Don’t get Reginald Denny’d because of fear of action on your part.  And don’t be emotional about it, and get out to confront just one of them who spit on your windshield.  No matter how strong you are, or how many guns you carry, your vehicle is far stronger and far more effective.

Sun Tsu suggested studying your enemies.  I suggest you take his advice.  Read and watch reports on these events as studiously as you study the tactics of the Jihadists.  Specially in your region.  What has happened in your area?  Who was responsible?  How did the police respond? All of these details will give you a clear image of what you may expect.

Finally, understand that we have been at war with the Jihadist in America for 17 years or more.  And that is an active and ongoing war.  But what we are seeing now from the left suggests that the “cold war” between the right and the left is heating up and will continue to do so.

‘Progressives’ Fantasizing about Civil War like Children Playing with Fire

Have those cavalierly proposing such scenarios as the appropriate response to Donald Trump considered all the likely factors?

“Chicago ‘scholar’ claims militias would be ‘toast’ if resisting military coup,” I posted last month. A “progressive journalist” was enamored of a “progressive academic,” both presuming the military is as predominantly subversive as they are. It would not only help them depose President Trump, the delusion goes, but would do all their dirty work for them.

The New Communism In America

…communism is not always brought to power as a result of a violent Lenin-esque revolution. It is as often brought to power in a cancerous Marxist spread that may take several generations to be realized.  And make no mistake, what you are seeing in the various protests, both the ridiculous and the violent, is an attempt to form the vanguard Lenin spoke about. That vanguard, funded and organized by the American Communist Movement,  will prove itself as dangerous to America and its citizens as any bomb wielding Jihadist. We live in a time of war and a new front is beginning to emerge.  Stay frosty and awake.

Combat Shooter's HandbookActually, Gabe doesn’t go back far enough. Dishonest Abe (born 2/12/1809) was a Marxist (although they didn’t call it that) before Carl Marx (born 5/5/1818). — jtl, 419

by Gabe Suarez via Suarez International

I wrote much about this two years ago, and again last year.  It seems it is time to do so again.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute Let us discuss communism, and why it remains as the greatest threat to humanity and the greatest danger to the success of this country and those who live here.  Last November was a referendum on the ongoing leftward march by the United States.  The work of men like Carter, and Clinton, and Obama was soundly rejected, as the the Chamberlain-like appeasement of the Bush clan with the election of President Trump.  And what we are seeing now is the American Communist Machine at work to hold on to a sliver of power while seeking to discredit those who defeated it.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsFirst some history and definitions.  Communism (from Latin “communis” – common) is a revolutionary movement that seeks to create a classless and moneyless social order structured upon common ownership of production, the means of production, as well as the profits from that production. The men most associated with communism are Marx, and Lenin. Communism significantly influenced the history of the 20th century, which saw intense rivalry between the “socialist world” (socialist states ruled by communist parties) and the “western world” (countries with populist/capitalist economies).

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)  Communists believe that pure communism is a specific stage of historical development that inevitably emerges from the development of production that leads to a superabundance of material wealth. That allows for distribution based on need.  The communist mantra is “From each according to their ability and to each according to their need”.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewCommunism has been always associated with the Soviet Union. Since the fall of the USSR, many Americans have incorrectly thought that communism fell as well. But today, the communist philosophy remains, draped with the more acceptable and “less Russian” names of “socialism”, “liberalism”, and now “progressivism”.  Yes, liberals and progressives are soft core communists.

It is interesting to note that Marxist theory contends that socialism is just a transitional stage on the road to communism. Leninism adds the notion of a vanguard party to lead the proletarian revolution and to secure all political power after the revolution for the working class. This usually means elimination of firearms in the hands of the public, confiscation of wealth, nationalization of industry, and indoctrination of the young…as well as executing any resistance.  In short, making everything and everyone dependent on the government.  This should all sound very familiar by now.

No imagined mythology here kids…my family and I lived through this in Cuba.  Any man that has lived in communism knows its smell instantly, and recognizes it over the room freshener, like the rotting stench of a corpse.

If one examines any country that has been communist…or pseudo-communist, one will eventually see a failed state. The USSR failed, as has every single other communist state. The current economic debacles in Europe are due to socialist (pseudo-communist) economic policies. Don’t take my word for it.  Please read it for yourself.

The reasons why communism does not work are as follows.

1). Creating A Classless Social Order. That is not possible because even though it may sound harsh, we are not all equal. Some people are smarter than others. Some people are stronger than others. And some people are more clever than others. Those that are, will naturally prosper more than the less prepared. As well, some people have a better work ethic than others. Denying that will not make it any less fact.  You cannot make a stupid man into a smart man, nor a lazy man into an industrious man.

Specially if he does not wish it so and would prefer to be funded by those who are.

What communism wants to do is to force “those who can” to carry “those who won’t”.

Eventually “those who can” either get tired of being enslaved (via excessive and ridiculous taxes) due to their talent and stop working, or simply leave to a non-communist region where they can profit from their abilities.  Think Atlas Shrugged.

2). Create a moneyless social order. Money is what drives everything. It has been that way from the age of Mesopotamia and is that way today. It is why countries go to war (and you thought it was for “freedom” I will bet), it is why people get up in the morning and go to school or work.

The hope for a better life and the creation of wealth is what drives a modern and prosperous society. Communism kills that hope by stifling creativity and drive (through the elimination of personal wealth) so that the lazy will not feel held back by the capable (sound familiar??).  Like it or not, for most men, the ability to keep what they make trumps ideas about patriotic giving.  Obamacare was a huge step in the attempt to develop a moneyless social order.

3). Common ownership of production, the means of production, as well as the profits from that production. They did that in Cuba. They made communist janitors in charge of State Agriculture. They made communist “academics” in charge of the banks. And they made communist housewives that were good friends with some general’s wife, in charge of education.  Communism thrives on nepotism and cronyism.  The ignorant, the incapable, the untrained and the unskilled cannot succeed at anything, in spite of how much Marx, Castro, Obama, or any other communist leader wants them to.

Want to know the source of the “Entitlement Mentality”?  Look no further than Communism.

Communism festered in Cuba and erupted into a revolution that was eventually successful. But communism is not always brought to power as a result of a violent Lenin-esque revolution. It is as often brought to power in a cancerous Marxist spread that may take several generations to be realized.  And make no mistake, what you are seeing in the various protests, both the ridiculous and the violent, is an attempt to form the vanguard Lenin spoke about.

That vanguard, funded and organized by the American Communist Movement,  will prove itself as dangerous to America and its citizens as any bomb wielding Jihadist.

We live in a time of war and a new front is beginning to emerge.  Stay frosty and awake.

Trump, the Lying Media, and “Christian” Marxism

Mr. Trump has people in his administration that he will have to deal with because they are not there to advance his agenda but are rather there to promote the program of the Shadow Government at the expense of his agenda. And the Church has the same problem,  with some in it who would rather point people to the tenets of Marxism than to the Sermon on the Mount–and the Church will, at some point, have to deal with that and expose it.
  The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsYep, the clergy betrayed us quite a while ago. — jtl, 419
by Al Benson Jr. via revisedhistory
Today (2/16) I watched a news conference given by Donald Trump. Confronted by a whole hoard of mostly hostile media carnivores, Mr. Trump managed to hold his own and even get in a few licks. He didn’t take any baloney from them and even threw back a couple questions at them that none of them dared answer. The vitriolic attitude of what passes for the “news” media was never more apparent and Mr. Trump told them, right out, at one point,  that “No one  believes you anymore.” I must say it was quite refreshing to see someone tell the prostitute press off. It has been decades coming, and they don’t like it. Maybe we should see about reserving  a crying room in the basement of the Washington Post for them.  Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteTrump asked the media people right out, where they were getting all the classified information about what was going on in his administration, information no one is supposed to be aware of, yet they are reporting their skewed version of it on TV and in news articles. Obviously there seems to be someone in Mr. Trump’s administration that is playing Brutus to his Caesar, which, given the Shadow Government’s desire to destroy his administration, should surprise no one. Whoever this person or persons is,  they need to be given the boot and sent back to crawl under their Leftist rocks along with Obama’s Organizing for Action and other Far Left radical groups, many of which are funded by George Soros.

  Combat Shooter's Handbook For those of you that think you have seen the last of the Clintons and Comrade Obama, disabuse yourselves of that silly notion right now. Those people mean to rule us, whether we want them or not, by hook or by crook (and knowing the Clintons it will be mostly “crook”).

There was an article on http://www.lewrockwell.com this morning, written by Joseph Smith that originally appeared in American Thinker. Mr. Smith has observed that: “Persistent rumors of Hillary Clinton’s 2020 presidential aspirations are not sitting well with the left-wing media. Matt Latimer claims he can prove that Hillary is ‘running again’:  And the facts are clear that the former secretary of state is doing everything she needs to do to run for the White House one more time. A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual If she finds a path to do so, she will take it…” And he noted some of Latimer’s commentary: “Most defeated rivals disappear after their loss. Instead, Clinton sounded very much like she was still on the campaign trail. (Because, of course, she is.)…Clinton is not going to spend the rest of her life haunted by the question of ‘what if?’ What if I could run again– and win? Besides,  seeking the White House has been her aspiration for decades. What else is there for her to do? Yet, barring some calamity, Clinton is running.” And besides, who else will give 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)   Obama the third term he’d dearly love to have (and would have seized if he thought he could get away with it). For some reason, George Soros, who pulls his marionette strings, wouldn’t let him, but like Hillary, unfortunately, he hasn’t gone away either. He is sitting two miles from the White House, doing as much damage to the Trump presidency as he possibly can. Mark my words, the American public is yet going to have to deal with this loathsome pair again unless the Lord intervenes.

On top of all this Leftist garbage still floating down the Potomac,  we have another article, also from http://www.lewrockwell.com authored by Christopher Manion, the title of which was Do Catholic Bishops Miss Obama?  You might as well ask if the Pope was Catholic–the answer to both questions would be the same. Mr. Manion, who is Roman Catholic, knows where the Catholic Church is coming from, at least at the leadership level, and he exposes that quite plainly. He noted that: “Donald Trump has scared the devil out of America’s Catholic bishops. They have supported the Democratic agenda for so long–global warming, amnesty, raising the minimum wage, and national health care–that they can’t seem to let go…Given Trump’s reversal of Obama’s pernicious policies, why aren’t Catholic bishops cheering? Why haven’t they told the faithful and the public that at last we have a president who defends the rights of the unborn, who defies the United Nations bureaucrats, global warming and population control, and who will put families and not bureaucrats back in charge of their children’s schools? In various ways I have asked countless bishops this question, and none of them will answer.” What does that tell you about the Catholic bishops? It should tell you something, if you still have the ability to think. How many of them really care about the rights of the unborn–if those rights happen to get in the way of an Obama or Clinton agenda? Catholic folks need to start asking their bishops these questions, and expecting coherent answers from them instead of theological gobbledygook.

Years ago I recall talking to a Presbyterian missionary in South America. While down there he came into contact with lots of Catholic priests in the area he was in and he observed that, although they were personally sociable to him, “They were all Marxists.” And lest anyone think I am picking on the Roman Catholics, there are lots of Evangelical Protestants that fall into this same category, some without even realizing it. But some do. The Christian Church, whether it realizes it or not, has a Leftist problem it is going to have to deal with some day.

Mr. Trump has people in his administration that he will have to deal with because they are not there to advance his agenda but are rather there to promote the program of the Shadow Government at the expense of his agenda. And the Church has the same problem,  with some in it who would rather point people to the tenets of Marxism than to the Sermon on the Mount–and the Church will, at some point, have to deal with that and expose it.

“Organizing for Action” and Destabilizing Trump’s Presidency

He is doing this, in part, through what Mr. Sperry calls “a network of leftist non-profits led by Organizing for Action.” Tax records show this “non-partisan” group maintains 32,525 volunteers across the country, with over 250 offices across the country. And this “non-partisan” group has raised over $40 million since it “evolved” from busying itself at raising money for his re-election campaign. Where do you suppose all those millions came from? If we follow the media “goob and truckle” that is dished out to us we are supposed to believe that they came from $5 and $10 donations from poor, struggling Leftists all across the country who just couldn’t bear the thought of all the damage a Trump presidency would do to their “people’s republic.” Believe that one and I have a bridge in Tucson, Arizona I will sell you cheap–and it’s made from genuine gold bricks, too!I

 Combat Shooter's Handbook That infamous “community organizer” Barry Sotero, aka Barack Obama, is on the march again, seeking to tear down what he was not able to on his first go-round and making sure no one rebuilds on the Marxist rubble he created. He is using a non-profit 501c4 organization called Organizing for Action to do it.

While most presidents leave the office of president to the person that follows them, Mr. Obama has no intention of doing that. If he couldn’t destroy the country while he was in office then his next attempt will be to try to destroy the man who is trying to save it.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteAn article by Paul Sperry on http://nypost.com for February 11th explains how he plans to do just that. Mr. Sperry noted in his article that Comrade Obama was encouraged by the spate of anti-Trump protests that “spontaneously” erupted across the country (and do you wonder who paid for all of them)?  Mr. Sperry observed: “Yes, Obama has an army of agitators, numbering more than 30,000–who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And 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)Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working…to set up what will effectively be a shadow government (emphasis mine) to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular ‘America First’ agenda.”  Which fact shows you that, while he was in office, he had no interest whatever in making America stronger or more independent. Indeed, his agenda was just the opposite–and I restate that for those folks that haven’t figured that out yet! Believe it or not,there are still some.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)  He is doing this, in part, through what Mr. Sperry calls “a network of leftist non-profits led by Organizing for Action.” Tax records show this “non-partisan” group maintains 32,525 volunteers across the country, with over 250 offices across the country. And this “non-partisan” group has raised over $40 million since it “evolved” from busying itself at raising money for his re-election campaign. Where do you suppose all those millions came from? If we follow the media “goob and truckle” that is dished out to us we are supposed to believe that they came from $5 and $10 donations from poor, struggling Leftists all across the country who just couldn’t bear the thought of all the damage a Trump presidency would do to their “people’s republic.” Believe that one and I have a bridge in Tucson, Arizona I will sell you cheap–and it’s made from genuine gold bricks, too!

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3) So let’s cut to the chase. Organizing for Action is a Leftist group that is out to destroy the Trump presidency. How many articles have you seen in the (Lame/Mainstream Media) about this?  I didn’t think so, neither have I.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewHow many of you have ever seen a presidential election season where the former president moved two miles from the White House and had an organization under his command that worked to destroy the administration of his successor? This has got to be a first! And that fact should tell you something.

Think about the implications of that. In the lifetimes of many of us (I am 78 years old) this has never happened. That means the Ruling Establishment, the Deep State, the Shadow Government, or whatever you want to call them,have had control of every election in my lifetime, so there was never any need for this kind of action because they controlled both parties. The only minor exceptions were Barry Goldwater in 1964 and George Wallace in 1968. Goldwater they handled without too much trouble because the media snowed everyone with “fake news” about him. In 68 George Wallace gave them a bit more trouble–and when he ran again in 72 they arranged to take care of that little problem. Wallace wasn’t “one of the boys” so he had to go. Trump isn’t “one of the boys” either, and he has made it all the way to the presidency, something Wallace never did–so they have got to totally destabilize  his presidency and wipe out all the cancellations of the Obama agenda that he has made. Either that or they have got to totally co-opt his administration–and they are working on that angle too. Witness the recent resignation of General Flynn. So who do they go after next?

Our unelected rulers are worried this time and it is causing them to react in ways they never had to before. Who knows, in their paranoia and panic, they might even end up making some monumental goof. After all, the Lord is able to make them screw up in some colossal way should He so decide. Might be something we all should pray for.

Sabotage: Obama Is Commanding An Army Of 30,000 Anti-Trump Activists From His Home 2 Miles From The White House

(Bareback Yomama’s) new home is less than two miles from the White House, and from this “command center” he will be directing the activities of an army of more than 30,000 anti-Trump activists… this army has already been heavily involved in many of the protests and riots that have been popping up around the nation in recent days…it is becoming apparent that Obama intends to do all that he can to sabotage the Trump administration, and that is very bad news for the American people.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewI had heard about this and suspected it to be “false news.” But, I have been reading Michael Snyder’s stuff for several years now and have always found it reliable. And after all, this particular technique is strait out of the communist (and founder of modern  community organizing) Saul Alinsky’s 1971 book Rules for Radicals.

Yes boys and girls, we are engaged in a civil war if there ever was one. It will take blood in the streets (and lots of it) to fix this mess. — jtl, 419

Obama And Trump Laughing - Public Domain

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsThroughout American history, most ex-presidents have chosen to move away from Washington D.C. once their terms have ended, and the vast majority of them have tried very hard not to interfere with their successors. Unfortunately, Barack Obama has opted for the exact opposite approach. His new home is less than two miles from the White House, and from this “command center” he will be directing the activities of an army of more than 30,000 anti-Trump activists. In fact, as you will see below, this army has already been heavily involved in many of the protests and riots that have been popping up around the nation in recent days. “Sabotage” is a very strong word, but it is becoming apparent that Obama intends to do all that he can to sabotage the Trump administration, and that is very bad news for the American people.  Combat Shooter's Handbook On Saturday, the New York Post ran an excellent article by author Paul Sperry that was entitled “How Obama is scheming to sabotage Trump’s presidency”. In that piece, Sperry actually accuses Obama of setting up “a shadow government” to oppose Trump…

When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.

In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular “America First” agenda.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteThe “army of agitators” that Sperry is talking about is actually a nationwide network of “community organizers” known as “Organizing for Action”.

If you go to the official website of Organizing for Action, you will see that there is a big picture of Obama right in the background of the homepage. Organizing for Action “grew out of Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign”, and it claims to have 250 local chapters around the nation.

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) If Hillary Clinton had won the election, Organizing for Action would almost certainly have faded from the spotlight, but now that Trump is in the White House they are rapidly raising money and gearing up for war.

And one of the first things the organization is trying to do is to save Obamacare. The following comes from NBC News

To defend Obamacare, the group says it has planned 400 health care-focused events in 42 states this year with partners that include mainline liberal groups, like the Center for American Progress and Planned Parenthood, as well those from the progressive wing, like MoveOn.org.

OFA says 20,000 people have used their tool to call senators’ offices to urge them not to repeal Obamacare and says one million supporters have already taken action with OFA.

The goal is to further hinder the already stalling momentum around repeal the Affordable Care Act.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualBut Organizing for Action is not just about peaceful political action. In fact, according to Sperry some of the anti-Trump marches that Organizing for Action helped put together actually “turned into riots”…

Far from sulking, OFA activists helped organize anti-Trump marches across US cities, some of which turned into riots. After Trump issued a temporary ban on immigration from seven terror-prone Muslim nations, the demonstrators jammed airports, chanting: “No ban, no wall, sanctuary for all!”

Run by old Obama aides and campaign workers, federal tax records show “nonpartisan” OFA marshals 32,525 volunteers nationwide. Registered as a 501(c)(4), it doesn’t have to disclose its donors, but they’ve been generous. OFA has raised more than $40 million in contributions and grants since evolving from Obama’s campaign organization Obama for America in 2013.

So many people have been pointing the finger at George Soros for funding and organizing anti-Trump activists, but the truth is that Organizing for Action is perhaps even more involved than Soros is.

And Barack Obama is guiding and directing Organizing for Action from his brand new compound less than two miles from the White House.

The ironic thing about all of this is that Obama is currently building a very tall brick wall around his compound while at the same time his army of activists is highly criticizing Trump for wanting to build a border wall to protect the United States from unwanted intruders.

If Obama doesn’t like walls, he should tear down his own wall first.

Another form of sabotage against the Trump administration is coming from Obama loyalists that are still embedded within various government agencies.

According to Trump, those loyalists are responsible for the very disturbing leaks that have been happening

President Donald Trump pointed the finger at Obama administration holdovers at the White House and National Security Council for leaking information about private phone conversations he had with leaders of Australia and Mexico.

“It’s a disgrace that they leaked because it’s very much against our country,” Trump told Fox News Sunday, accusing “Obama people” in civil service positions for the leaks. “It’s a very dangerous thing for this country,” he added noting that these individuals were still being sought out and replaced.

Needless to say, after eight years under Obama many government agencies are absolutely crawling with people that are still very loyal to him. Trump needs to do a major housecleaning, and that is going to take some time.

What is going on between Obama and Trump is a microcosm of what is happening to society as a whole.

Obama and his loyalists have totally bought into the radical progressive agenda of the global elite, and Donald Trump and his followers are very much against it.

I don’t know that it is possible for there to be much compromise between the two sides, and so that means that more conflict is ahead.

The election of Donald Trump has fired up the radical left like never before, and I believe that the protests and riots that we have seen so far are only just the beginning.

And if things go really bad under Trump, it is very easy to imagine widespread civil unrest erupting all over the nation.

Unfortunately, throughout all of this we are going to be having an ex-president sitting less than two miles from the White House guiding and directing the anti-Trump forces every step of the way.

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.

Entire Homeschooling Family Kidnapped by the State

 Most parents believe themselves to be the sole arbitrators when it comes to making choices that directly impact their children, and rightfully so, as kids are perhaps the most obvious fruits of one’s labor. But it has unfortunately become all too common for the state to intervene, asserting that government knows what is best for your child.
A Handbook for Ranch Managers I am glad that our children are grown and all that is behind me because, if such as this had ever happened to me, somebody would have died and I would be dead or in prison.  — jtl, 419
by Brittany Hunter via Foundation for Economic Education
Raising children is no walk in the park, but it’s even more difficult when the state dictates what you can and cannot do with your own family. Kiarre Harris is a devoted single mother, trying her hardest to provide her children with the best possible upbringing.
Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual  Government schooling has been failing children for years.After growing concerned that her children were not receiving an adequate education from the Buffalo public school system in New York State, she made the decision to pull her kids out of their school.

“I felt that the district was failing my children,” Harris reported.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewHarris’ feelings are not uncommon among parents of public school students. Government schooling has been failing children for years. However, since it is funded through tax dollars, rather than being a product of the market, it is incredibly difficult to keep public schools, and public teachers, accountable. This is precisely why many parents have begun considering other options that are better suited to their children’s educational needs.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsFrustrated and desperate for an alternative, Harris spent time researching homeschooling, which she ultimately decided was the best direction for her family. Unfortunately, the state disagreed.

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) An Unexpected Visit

Harris and her family received a visit from social service representatives, who were accompanied by local police officers.

Harris had done everything exactly right. She familiarized herself with the legal process and followed all the guidelines required by the state of New York in order to homeschool her children.

“I spoke directly to the homeschool coordinator and she told me from this point on my children were officially un-enrolled from school.”

But despite filing all the relevant and mandated paperwork and working closely with the district to ensure she was adhering to the proper protocol, Harris received a phone call from Child Protective Services a week later, demanding to know why her children had not been attending school.

She explained the situation to the state representative and even offered to provide them with copies of the paperwork she had already filed with the district. The representative appeared to be appeased by Harris’ explanation, and she believed the matter had been fully resolved.

Before even a month had passed since the unexpected phone call, Harris and her family received a visit from social service representatives, who were accompanied by local police officers.

Claiming to have an order from a local judge, ordering the state to remove her children from their home, Harris did what any mother would do and refused to hand her children over to strangers with government badges.

Instead of discussing the matter and attempting to get to the bottom of the situation before uprooting young children from the comfort and safety of their home and mother, police officers arrested Harris for obstructing law enforcement in the line of duty.

What Happens Next?

While the school district has claimed they are unable to comment on the matter, they said that homeschooling is a right only granted to those who have full custody of their children, alluding to the possibility that Harris was not the sole custodian of her two kids.

The state is punishing Harris for doing what she, as their mother, believes is best for the children.Harris, who is no newbie to single parenthood, has had sole custody of her children for several years. However, the incompetency of the state appears to be enough of a reason to not only remove her children, but to deny her visitation privileges altogether.

It has now been three weeks since Harris has seen her children. By no fault of her own, the state is punishing Harris for doing what she, as their mother, believes is best for the children.

The state, as always, has justified their actions under the guise of “protecting” the Harris children. However, it is unclear how ripping two minors from their home serves any benefit to Harris’ kids. This tragic situation perfectly demonstrates the inherent nature of government failure, not only in the education system but also with something as simple as proper communication. Since Harris had, in fact, done everything right, the fault here lies with Buffalo officials, and their inability to properly do their job.

For now, the case is ongoing, but even though the blame is on the local government, the young children must wait in foster care, while the state attempts to fix its own mistake.

Invading Mexico: More Brilliance from Washington

 To make things worse, much worse, the narcos are neither helpless nor poorly armed. They have AKs, RPGs. They have years of experience in combat, with each other or the Mexican army. They are skilled at ambushes. When you look exactly like the rest of the population, and the American soldiers look like space aliens, they are easy to ambush. The American reaction to a few dead GIs will be hysterical. The narcos will use ambushes in populated areas to make troops fire wildly, killing children, grandmothers, young women. This will turn the country further against the invaders. Not nice, but effective.

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) What Fred does here, using Mexico as a hypothetical, is summarize uS military history from Korea forward–not having “won” a single outing. Low tech ALWAYS trumps high tech and they just can’t seem to get that through their heads. — jtl, 419

By Fred Reed via Fred on Everything

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)    Time: “You have a bunch of bad hombres down there,” Trump told Peña Nieto, according to the excerpt given to AP. “You aren’t doing enough to stop them. I think your military is scared. Our military isn’t, so I just might send them down to take care of it.”

With Trump it is difficult to tell bluster and carney-barker showmanship from serious consideration or actual intention.  While clearly a threat, the The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)remark  may have been intended only to intimidate, and the ascription of cowardice to the Mexican army only ill-bred. Trump’s military record leaves no doubt as to his own courage. Given his administration’s threats of military action–war–against China and Iran, the possibility that he will send troops southward may be worth pondering. Whether the President has the faintest idea of what would be involved in very much worth pondering.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsIf troops are sent, what will they face in Mexico? What would they do? How many would they be?

To begin with, the narcos look exactly like everybody else in Mexico. They do not carry ID cards saying “Narcotraficante.” They can easily blend into the general population. If GIs try to operate here, the inability to distinguish narcos from everybody else  will quickly lead to intense Combat Shooter's Handbook frustration. Frustrated troops become angry. They begin to hate the locals as in all such wars they hated the dinks, gooks, slopes, zipperheads, sand niggers, and rag-heads. Mexicans will begin to seem treacherous to them, as always happens when US troops go to countries they do not understand. All Mexicans will come under suspicion.

Soldiers, being young, usually not too bright, poorly educated, with no Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Instituteexperience of other cultures, will start knocking people around. It always happens. Always. It is exactly what happened in Viet Nam, Laos, Cambodia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia. There will be beatings, people slapped about, mistaken raids with the man of the house handcuffed, thrown to the floor, and humiliated in front of his wife. This is what happens when when you chase willothewisp narcos or terrs or mujaheddin or VC or commies on the basis of shaky information from unreliable sources with agendas of their own.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers  Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewAmerican forces will be called “advisers” or maybe “trainers” by the Pentagon, but Mexicans will see them as invaders. Since the Mexican constitution forbids the deployment of foreign forces in the country, they will indeed be invaders, although the Mexican government will be pressured into “inviting” them.. No country well tolerates arrogant, blundering, heavy-handed alien myrmidons with the power to push them around. GIs will not be regarded as friends or saviors.

Drug territory, Sierra Madre. Dense cover, fog, enormous rocks, steep escarpments. Phredfoto. 

Much of the narco culture springs from the Sierra Madre Occidental, very rough mountainous land traversed by trails and dirt roads that the narcos know well and GIs  never will. People here are tough, leading lives harder than any in modern America. For many of them the drug trade is a miraculous thing allowing them more than a very hard-scrabble existence. American troops bumbling about here would accomplish nothing. The Pentagon, again, would rely on drone operators with no way of knowing who they were killing.

Many of the narcos are in cities, such as Culiacán, capital of Sinaloa, home of the Sinaloa cartel. What do foreign troops do in a large busy city?

To make things worse, much worse, the narcos are neither helpless nor poorly armed. They have AKs, RPGs. They have years of experience in combat, with each other or the Mexican army. They are skilled at ambushes. When you look exactly like the rest of the population, and the American soldiers look like space aliens, they are easy to ambush. The American reaction to a few dead GIs will be hysterical. The narcos will use ambushes in populated areas to make troops fire wildly, killing children, grandmothers, young women. This will turn the country further against the invaders. Not nice, but effective.

The US will rely on its new toys, drones, and on helicopters to try to compensate for the fact that Mexico is a huge country with lots of very nasty terrain. Drone operators don’t know who they are shooting at. This means that, as always happens, always, they will kill a lot of innocent people. The American media will suppress the these killings, as they do in America’s other invasions, but the Mexicans will know. The military doesn’t care as long as killings do not result in bad publicity. The Trump administration will refer to these slaughters as “isolated incidents.” An isolated incident is business as usual that has been detected.

It takes very little killing of innocents to generate hatred. The public will regard the invaders as worse than the narcos and withhold cooperation,  which will make the invaders yet more angry. Further, cooperating with the US will be dangerous. The narcos respond very badly to such things. The Mexican army will be compelled by the US to assist the invaders but will be unenthusiastic. Soon the Americans will be complaining that they are getting little help in what the GIs will be told is a campaign to help Mexico.,

This too is routine and inevitable. In all of its invasions, in Southeast Asia, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, the Pentagon makes a show of training local forces to “defend their countries,” to stand up and fight whatever it is that the United-States doesn’t like. This means encouraging, or forcing, citizens of a country to kill other citizens of the same country. Only the Pentagon could be surprised when this works poorly. Picture China’s invading the US and forcing Virginians to fight Texans. And so in country after country the Americans complain about the indigenous army, of its poor fighting quality, low morale, desertion, payrolls padded with ghost soldiers, theft of weapons, and troops going over to the enemy.

Northern Mexico. You actually find towns and homes in and around this sort of landscape. Phredfoto.

Mexico is very large, about 2000 miles across the northern border and about 1200 driving miles from Laredo to Tuxtla Gutierrez. Much of it is godawful for infantry operations. Necessarily the troops will be able to operate only in small parts of the country. The narcos will easily go around them. Since a small number of troops will accomplish nothing, there will be calls for more troops.

In short, a few GIs will be pointless. Large numbers will be pointless while killing large numbers of people and reducing yet another country to chaos. Maybe it isnl’t a really bright idea.

The Pathetic New York Times

I count 70 US military operations since 1991 and the fall of the Soviet Union…The US military interventions have killed, wounded or displaced countless millions of people.  The Russian interventions?  I will guess in the tens or hundreds of thousands at most.

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)In my lifetime, starting with JFK, there was LBJ who grossly escalated the Vietnam War and Richard Millhouse (I am not a crook) Nixon and his “Vietnamazation” and “Peace with Honor.”

Then after a 20 year lull, the war crimes began in earnest–King George the Elder,  William (Slippery Bill) Clinton, King George the Younger and  last but not least, Bareback Yomama and their lackeys–all war criminals. –jtl, 419

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)   By Bionic Mosquito  via LewRockwell.com

What else can you call it?

One more time, on the “bromance” between Trump and Putin….

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)Moral Equivalence?

“You got a lot of killers,” Mr. Trump told Bill O’Reilly of the slavishly pro-Trump Fox News. “What, you think our country’s so innocent?”

The editors at the Times take exception to this:

…rather than endorsing American exceptionalism, Mr. Trump seemed to appreciate Mr. Putin’s brutality…

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsI find nothing in Trump’s comments to suggest he “appreciates” Putin’s brutality.  Trump merely stated, in the form of a question, an undeniable fact.

The editors of the Times are very good at listing in some detail Putin’s transgressions – not all of which have any factual basis (but facts cannot be allowed to get in the way of these editors).

Combat Shooter's Handbook  There is a Wikipedia page dedicated to all US military operations since 1775.  I count 70 US military operations since 1991 and the fall of the Soviet Union.  There is no such page for Russia; there are two unique pages – one for Syria and one for Ukraine.  That’s it.  Off of the top of my head, I would add Georgia.

The US military interventions span the globe; the Russian military Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute interventions are either directly on the borders of Russia or to a close, long-time ally.  The US military interventions have killed, wounded or displaced countless millions of people.  The Russian interventions?  I will guess in the tens or hundreds of thousands at most.

Do the editors of the Times dare deal with reality?  No.  Not on this topic.

Speaking of Martians

On to the next topic:

Since taking office, Mr. Trump has shown little support for America’s traditional roles as a champion of universal values like freedom of the press and tolerance.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers  Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualEnvironmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewMartians value “freedom of the press and tolerance”?  Are these really universal values?  Returning to this planet, are these valued in so-called US allies like Saudi Arabia and Israel?

The Times might consider – these so-called universal values may not be universal and in any case are not the business of the US government outside of the United States.  Tolerance is not the business of the US government within the United States, either.  The Constitution offers freedom of the press; it says nothing of tolerance.

The Ends Justify the Means

The Times, like all apologists for the military empire that is the United States, accepts immorality if the (advertised) ends are noble:

At least in recent decades, American presidents who took military action have been driven by the desire to promote freedom and democracy…

Ask the millions of dead, wounded and displaced if they appreciate the “freedom and democracy” that they have achieved via US intervention.  The ends justify the means only for those who benefits from “the ends,” and not for those who suffer through “the means.”

Whatever one might say about Hussein in Iraq, Ghaddafi in Libya, or Assad in Syria, the people in these countries weren’t dying by the millions before the United States intervened on their behalf.

…sometimes with extraordinary results, as when Germany and Japan evolved after World War II from vanquished enemies into trusted, prosperous allies.

This isn’t “recent decades.”  This is more than seventy years ago.  And it would be more accurate to describe Germany and Japan as vassal states, not “allies.”

A Stopped Clock…

The Times gets one thing right:

…Mr. Trump has…laid the groundwork for an aggressive campaign that could lead to conflict with Iran…

I wish Trump wouldn’t take actions that could lead to conflict with Iran.  One reason Trump won the election is because many people in the United States are tired of war and are tired of paying for war.

Do you want to see terrorism and the refugee crisis lose steam?  How about just stop bombing people.  The Times could endorse precisely this policy – you know, the opposite of the policy endorsed by their preferred candidate.
