INTERIOR: Property rights lawyer picked as acting assistant secretary

We have known Karen Bud-Falen for, well let’s see, ten years or maybe longer. We missed her this year at the New Mexico Cattle Growers Summer Convention and this article explains why.

Please read carefully. It will help you understand just how difficult it is to get “one of ours” into any kind of position where they can be effective.

Surrender is not an option. — jtl, 419

Song for Today: Faron Young – What Does It Take To Make A Grown Man Cry

Land & Livestock International, Inc.

The philosophy of the author (as well as the publisher) is that ranch management should be approached from the view that the land, the livestock, the people and the money are one—a single integrated whole. But once that is understood and constantly kept in mind, a close examination of each of these elements is permissible. Furthermore, due to the linear limitations of the written word, each of these management areas has to be treated separately. In keeping with that, Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. The book is a comprehensive source of information on all aspects of managing the working ranch. Not only would it make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it because it is a…

Time To Abolish the Government?

The day we move to punish people — citizens or not — because of what the government fears they might do is the day all liberty will be lost. And the day the government punishes not in accordance with the law is the day for abolishing the government.
Ou rah! Think secession. At least it is a step in the right direction. — jtl, 419
By Andrew P. Napolitano  via LewRockwell.com

Combat Shooter's HandbookReconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteThe Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsWhile the eyes of the political and media classes were on President Donald Trump as he commemorated the 75th anniversary of D-Day in the United Kingdom and in France last week, and then as we all watched for progress in the tariff war Trump started with Mexico, the Department of Justice was quietly trying to persuade a federal judge in Chicago to abandon first principles with respect to citizenship and sentencing.

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 DOJ filed a motion asking a federal judge to strip the American citizenship of one Iyman Faris. Faris, who was born in Pakistan, has been a naturalized American citizen since 1994. In 2001, he pleaded guilty to conspiring to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge and was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison. His fellow “conspirators” were FBI agents pretending to be foreign and domestic terrorists willing to work with him.

In other words, there was no real conspiracy. Yet federal prosecutors persuaded Faris and his lawyers that if the surveillance tapes the FBI made of Faris were shown to a jury, they would likely help produce a guilty verdict.

Theodore and Woodrow: … Andrew P. Napolitano Best Price: $2.15 Buy New $6.00 (as of 07:20 EDT – Details)

Faris’ case was one of many in the months immediately following the tragedy of 9/11 in which federal agents found vulnerable loners in the United States with Middle Eastern-sounding last names and seduced them into nonexistent plots. Stated differently, the feds created false crimes and then solved them.

If you believe — as Anglo-American jurisprudence taught for 600 years — that crime is harm, then Faris, who caused no harm, is no criminal. He is the victim of similar FBI tactics as those used on candidate Trump in 2015 and 2016.

If you believe that articulating thoughts about committing a crime, thoughts generated by FBI agents who tricked him into believing that they shared those thoughts — as modern-day Anglo-American jurisprudence teaches is criminal — then Faris is guilty of conspiracy to commit acts of terror.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual    Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View I have argued for years that the government ought not to be in the business of creating crime just to get those it hates and fears off the street. My argument has occasionally received some resonance, but the government continues on this perilous path. Nevertheless, 18 years after Faris’ guilty plea, we are beyond the issue of whether Faris is actually guilty of a crime. We are now confronted with the unthinkable issue of whether he can be punished for a crime that has not yet occurred.

Faris’ 20-year sentence is now nearly complete, since today one ordinarily serves 85% of one’s incarceration in the federal system. Yet the same feds who concocted his so-called crime have now argued to a federal judge that Faris should be stripped of his American citizenship and deported or — worse yet — kept in prison indefinitely, even though he will soon have served his full sentence.

Can the government get away with this?

The short answer: No. The longer answer is that the Trump DOJ, which should be wary of the dangers of false crimes and cutting constitutional corners, has abandoned its professed fidelity to first principles.

What are those principles? This is virgin and dangerous ground that the Trump administration seeks to walk upon. Under current law, one can only lose naturalized citizenship by either the voluntary, knowing, explicit and intentional renunciation of it or by the government proving the existence of knowing and intentional fraud perpetrated upon the government in order to obtain the citizenship.

These naturalized citizenship first principles were reinforced by the Supreme Court as recently as 2017, in a case the feds chose not to address when they made their application for stripping Faris of his citizenship or holding him beyond the duration of his sentence.

There is simply no statute that permits the removal of citizenship out of fear of future harm or for behavior that occurred after the citizenship was granted, and the DOJ knows that. Nor is there any statute that permits incarceration beyond the time sentenced once the sentence has been served. Congress could certainly provide by statute for the removal of citizenship and deportation of foreign-born persons convicted of certain crimes, but such provisions could only apply to crimes committed after Congress expressly provided for the punishments as penalties upon conviction.

As well, the government cannot ask a judge to enhance the penalty for a crime after the crime was committed, without violating due process. And the executive branch cannot on its own constitutionally enhance or threaten to enhance a penalty at any time or for any reason.

Under the doctrine of the separation of powers — which is integral to the Constitution — only Congress can prescribe penalties for violations of federal law, not the executive or judicial branches.

It Is Dangerous to Be … Andrew P. Napolitano Best Price: $1.16 Buy New $2.99 (as of 07:20 EDT – Details)

And under basic principles of due process in America, people are not punished because of what the government fears they might do. They may only be constitutionally punished for crimes for which they have lawfully been convicted — once real crimes, but in post-9/11 Orwellian America, regrettably, false crimes as well.

The United States was born as an act of violent political secession from Great Britain. That violence commenced in full after Thomas Jefferson articulated in the Declaration of Independence not only that our rights to due process are natural — he called them “inalienable” — but also that the colonists had had enough of being charged by the Crown for “pretended offenses” that were “foreign to our Constitution.”

The day we move to punish people — citizens or not — because of what the government fears they might do is the day all liberty will be lost. And the day the government punishes not in accordance with the law is the day for abolishing the government.

Growing Drive to Destroy the Beef Industry

To bring the cattle industry into line with this world view the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has accepted the imposition of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef, which is heavily influenced, if not controlled, by the World Wildlife Fund, one of the top three most powerful environmental organizations in the world and a leader in the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP), which basically sets the rules for global environmental policy.

Disturbing PBS documentary shows woman killing her unborn twins like it’s nothing at all

It gets worse, if you can believe it.

A PBS documentary is going viral on the internet Tuesday for its chilling depiction of a pregnant woman nonchalantly taking the abortion pill to terminate her twin pregnancies.

What are the details?

Combat Shooter's Handbook Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsPro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha shared a snippet of the documentary on Twitter Monday, captioning it, “This PBS documentary airbrushes abortion to make it look like some healthy new age practice.”

“The woman in blue is pregnant with twins and she is filmed here taking the abortion pill to kill them,” she explained. “You witness their killing.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers  Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View“And,” Ekeocha added, “her statement at the end is chilling.”

The video features footage of an abortion clinic call center, chock-full of women answering phone calls about abortion advice.

Throughout the short video, a smiling woman, wearing a blue dress and a full face of makeup, can be seen taking her first pill in the abortion pill series. The second pill will be taken 24 hours after the first, according to a health care practitioner who is seeing her in the office.

At the end of the video, the woman — who is apparently pregnant with twins — smiles into the camera and sends a message to her unborn children, as well as voices her hopes for the abortion.

“What I hope I feel is a sense of peace, not only with myself and the decision that I have made, but also a sense of peace with these two beings that I have chosen not to bring into the world,” she explains.

It gets worse, if you can believe it.

“Thank you for choosing me and I’m honored to be given this gift of life and also I can’t do it right now,” the woman says. “I can’t accept that mantle in terms of the other lives I’m taking care of and responsible for.”

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…

War is a Racket & Not What It Seems to the Majority of People

There is such a thing as a libertarian war, but there are several constrictions: 1) It must be strictly defensive–the initiation of force or violence is forbidden (under the non-aggression principle); 2) It must be privately funded (because taxation is theft); 3) targets must be pin-pointed (collateral damage is not acceptable); 4) It must be all voluntary (conscription is slavery).

And yes, such a war could be winnable against any conventional military force through the application of the modern theory of open source warfare. Keep your powder dry. — jtl, 419

Land & Livestock International, Inc.

We’re told that war is necessary, that soldiers are … ‘fighting for our freedom’ and sacrificing their lives in order to keep our homeland safe. It’s a narrative that’s still pushed today and it’s backed by a massive propaganda campaign that beams patriotism into the hearts of the masses; meanwhile, very few people ever question what’s actually happening.
