I highly recommend this book. But be warned, if you decide to go ahead and read it, your views on humanity and your own perspective of reality will be forever changed and there will be no coming back.

You think your president really, truly represents you and has your best interests in mind? You think that by voting you make a difference? You think The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)that the government should take care of the economy, health care, and every possible aspect of your life? If so, think again or you will be in for a big surprise if you haven’t realized it as of now. If you already had intuitions about the parasitic, and fundamentally flawed nature of government but still couldn’t grasp it in its horrific totality then this is the book you need to read.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)Anatomy of the State Murray Rothbard

Murray Rothbard came to me, or I came to him after years of admiring and following Ron Paul’s speeches and ideas. After reading anatomy of the state and other works from Rothbard, now I see where many of Ron Paul’s ideas originate. They come from Rothbard, and Rothbard’s ideas, at the same time, originate in Mises’ interpretation of life in the world throughout the lens of Austrian Economics and individualism.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsIf you identify yourself with Ron Paul, libertarianism, individualism and classical liberalism, then this is a book you need to read to know what we, as a civilization, are currently facing in the form of tyrannical governments, corrupt politicians and despotic ruling elites. Rothbard deconstructs many of those vague ideas and uncertain images we have about how things are and how things should be, to provide us with, instead, a very clear target of what’s wrong in this world and how we can respond to those who threaten our freedom to think, do, and be.

Jim Kunstler On “The Devastating Effect Of ‘Multiculturalism'”

Personally, I find it a little peculiar that we have to play the national anthem before any sporting event. All it really shows is how insecure we are as a nation that we have to display our love of country in this obsessive manner.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsAnd while we are at it, lets take a look at the Pledge of Allegiance. The first thing you need to know is where it came from. It was written by a card carrying Socialist by the name of Bellamy back in the 1930s. He had been a Baptist preacher who had been kicked out of the Church for preaching that Jesus was a Socialist. He was also one of the early ones that advocated the use of the “public schools” as a means for “social change.”

Now let’s analyze the pledge line by line:

Combat Shooter's Handbook I pledge allegiance to the flag… A flag is a piece of cloth. Saying that is the equivalent of worshiping a false idol.

And to the Republic for which it stands… Republic? What republic? That died 150 years ago. The day General Lee walked out of that courthouse was the day America died—from that day forward, the FedGov was to be the sole judge of the limits to its own power. Not surprisingly, it has since judged that there are NO limits to that power.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteOne nation… NOT! At the founding, the individual colonies were considered to be the “sovereigns” with freedom of association. All of the founding documents refer to it in the plural—“these” united (lower case) States and NOT THE (singular, only one centrally controlled sovereign) United (capital) States.

Under God… No problem with that except for the fact that it is a lie.

With liberty and justice for all… The biggest lie ever told. Just ask LaVoy Fenicum’s family. Just ask the Hammonds. — jtl, 419

There’s a lot to complain about in this deranged republic – if it even still is one – but the burdens of being a multimillionaire football player would not be at the top of my list.

Personally, I find it a little peculiar that we have to play the national anthem before any sporting event. All it really shows is how insecure we are as a nation that we have to display our love of country in this obsessive manner.

Are eaters of the “lumberjack slam” so disoriented when they leave the place that they need to be reminded what country they’re in? “Oh, look hon, were in the USA after all….”

What burns my ass is seeing baseball players in camo uniforms, as if they were an extension of the US military. What’s up with that? Is San Diego suddenly a theater of war? And why do US soldiers need to wear camo uniforms when shopping for eyeglasses? There used to be a distinction between battle dress and what you wore the rest of the time, even during a world war. And why on earth is it necessary to fly Air Force fighter jets over the stadium before the Super Bowl? Who authorizes the spend for that? Who are we trying to scare?

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewOf course, this new gale of ill-feeling stirred up by our intemperate president, the Golden Golem of Greatness, is driven by the oceanic currents of racial animus that are drowning the country more ruinously than the recent spate of hurricanes. The #Take the Knee campaign was already there, and getting hotter, even before Mr. Trump chimed in. At least he didn’t issue the usual sort of vapid nostrum about “diversity” and all of us getting along. In his blunt, blundering way, he may force the nation to clarify exactly what the beef is.

Surely it’s not about the woes of professional athletes. They are representing the grievances of a different realm in black America, perhaps the places they came from, the city ghettos or the rural backwaters of Dixieland, or maybe even boring black suburbs like Prince George County, Maryland. And the lingering question, to be equally blunt, is: how much is non-black America keeping black America down?

I say non-black because there are plenty of other ethnic groups in the mix besides the dwindling majority of “white folks.” I daresay there is as much, perhaps more real animus between Asian-Americans and black Americans than between white and black. But Asian-Americans did not enslave black Africans, so they’re off-the-hook for that original sin.

Mostly what Asian newcomers do is demonstrate that it’s possible to succeed economically and educationally in this country even if you start out with a culture and language completely alien to American ways. This is especially noticeable in places of exacting achievement like Silicon Valley. If anything, Asians complain that they do so well in school that the universities have to tamp down their admission numbers to give other ethnic groups a chance.

There seems to be so much psychological displacement in the feelings between black and white America that it is next to impossible to sort out what to do next.

White Dem-Progs (formerly “liberals”) appear to be so consumed with anxious consternation over the outcome of the long civil rights struggle that they are ready to commit a sort of hara-kiri to atone for their unforgivable cis-whiteness. To some extent, they have attempted to compensate by campaigning for an ever-growing list of other “marginalized” groups in the hopes of showing some positive results for social change — it’s just easier to get significant numbers of homosexuals into the corporate executive suites than to get blacks in there — but the Dem-Progs are still left with the grinding reality of a large, dysfunctional black underclass. They certainly can’t admit that their own contrived “remedies,” such as subsidizing out-of-wedlock births, has anything to do with it, or the devastating effect of “Multiculturalism” on some sort of unifying common culture based on values that everybody can agree on.

Similarly, black America displaces their oppositionality to whatever remains of a national common culture into the memes of “systemic racism and injustice.”

It has evolved insidiously in their own culture since the 1960s, probably (I believe) as a reaction to the anxiety provoked by the civil rights legislation of 1964-65. It’s really about behavior, especially in school. Are you interested in speaking English? Believe me, that would help a lot in this society. Consider this: Ella Fitzgerald was not singing black or white back in the day. She was just singing.

Time is like a river.  You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.  Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, when he said America will not come back.  He wrote:

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute “The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012.  The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.

A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsYou will never again out-vote these people.  It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away.  It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

Is identity politics brewing a Holocaust?

As Morell sees it, it is not damaging for America to commit war crimes as long as Manning doesn’t tell anyone about it.

Getting “cold feet” and walking out on the CIA was one of the greatest blessings that I have ever had bestowed upon me. Evil. Nothing but pure evil. — jtl, 419
 

Signs of American collapse are everywhere. Apparently no one notices. The world continues to vote with the US in the UN. When even Russia and China serve as handmaidens to US foreign policy by voting with Washington against North Korea, it appears that the image of America as the exceptional and indispensable country is a propaganda success even among Washington’s most threatened enemies. When Russia and China follow Washington’s lead, it shows the world that there is no alternative to Washington’s leadership.

A country with a $20 trillion public debt, an even larger private debt, a work force drowning in debt and employed in third world lowly paid domestic services, a stock market pumped up beyond all reason by Federal Reserve liquidity and companies using their profits to repurchase their own stock, a military that’s been tied down for 16 years by a few lightly armed Muslims, a propaganda ministry instead of a media with public ignorance the consequence, and with a total collapse of morality in public and private institutions along with the disappearance of courage, is nevertheless able to make the entire world dance to its tune. Washington is the Wizard of Oz.

Washington in the past 16 years has destroyed in whole or part seven countries, murdering, maiming, orphaning, widowing, and displacing millions of peoples. Yet Washington still presents itself as the great defender of human rights, democracy, and all that is good. The American people have voiced few words of protest against the massive crimes against humanity committed by “their” government.

The UN has not passed a resolution condemning the United States government for its endless aggressions, horrendous war crimes and illegal interventions against other countries.

Washington relies on threats and not diplomacy, and this is acceptable to the world. The UN sits as an American Approval Society because it is funded by American money.

Security agencies have become police state agencies, and they have transformed the obligation in the US military code to report war crimes into acts of treason that result in prison sentences. The US military code, just like the US Constitution and the laws that enforce it, is dead letter law, ignored and unenforced.

Consider the case of Bradley/Chelsea Manning. Bradley Manning released a film showing US troops murdering journalists, pedestrians, a good samaritan and his children as if it were a video game. These murders are war crimes. But it was Manning, who revealed them, not those who committed them, who was punished.

After release from prison Chelsea Manning was recently appointed by Harvard University’s Kennedy School as a visiting fellow. Most likely Harvard made the appointment to show support for the transgendered, not for truth-tellers wrongly convicted and turned into felons. The consequence was an uproar. I mean, really, how dare Harvard appoint a truth-teller. Manning might bring the entire Matrix crumbling down.

To prevent that Mike Morell, former deputy and acting director of the CIA, resigned his non-resident senior fellowship at Harvard, on the grounds that he “cannot be part of an organization that honors a convicted felon and leaker of classified information.” Morell is comfortable with his opposition to Manning as a truth-teller. Morell is concerned only that he might be perceived as biased against the transgendered. So Morell added to his resignation letter that “It is important to note that I fully support Ms. Manning’s rights as a transgender American, including the right to serve our country in the US military.”

Remember, Morell is the crazed immoralist who said on the Charlie Rose TV show that the US should start killing Russians to give them a message. It should scare Americans to death that such an insane person as Morell can reach the top ranks of the CIA.

Harvard, of course, collapsed under CIA pressure and cancelled Manning’s appointment.

Did anyone complain to Harvard about Morell’s appointment? Morell, unlike Manning, is a real felon, although a non-convicted one. As a CIA official, Morell is associated with the CIA torture program, a felony under both US and international law. Harvard and Morell are OK with torture, but telling the truth about it is a no-no. As Morell sees it, it is not damaging for America to commit war crimes as long as Manning doesn’t tell anyone about it.

The only reason for classifying information is to protect the government’s endless crimes from exposure. Yet the entirety of the US government, law schools, and the courts that are supposed to uphold the law, are silent about the policy that makes government crimes undiscoverable and that condemns whistleblowers who reveal the otherwise undiscoverable crimes.

So, what do we make of Harvard’s courage? Is F minus a low enough grade? In my day universities were not despicable cowards who serve as front men for government crimes.

As embarrassing as this story is to America, let’s get to what is the most interesting element. Morell is not embarrassed about suppressing a truth-teller who revealed US war crimes, but Morell is embarrassed to be at odds with Identity Politics. He is afraid of being seen as being in opposition to a transgendered person.

In other words, Identity Politics trumps truth, a point that cannot be emphasized too much. We see it everywhere, from statue removal to the Democratic Party turning on the working class, now defined by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee as racist, sexist, homophobic, white male gun nuts. Today both American political parties represent the armaments industries, the jobs offshoring corporations, and the big banks and Wall Street. No political party represents the American people.

Indeed, the people are chopped up into groups and turned against one another. That is the purpose of Identity Politics. Every group except white heterosexual males is a victim group, and women, blacks, hispanics, homosexuals, and transgendered are taught that it is not the armaments industries, the offshoring corporations, the financial sector, or Washington that is their enemy, but white heterosexual males, a group conflated by Identity Politics with the working class. Of course, women, blacks, hispanics, and homosexuals are also members of the working class, but they no longer see themselves that way. They see themselves as women, as black, as hispanic, as homosexual and as victims not of government and the powerful interest groups government serves but as victims of white males. And of “civil war” statues.

The controversy over the statue of Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Virginia, the capital of the Confederate States of America, is again in the news. Attacks on statues are one of the ways that the liberal/progressive/left teaches hate. First the hate seizes upon statues, inanimate objects. As we saw in the videos of the statue of the Confederate soldier that was pulled down, the desecrators of a public monument spit upon and kicked the statue as if it were a person.

To the ignorant rabble the inanimate object is a stand-in for a racist white southern male who the ignorant rabble think “fought for slavery.” And the hate doesn’t stop there. It extends back to the Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution. The ignorant rabble, no doubt university students and bus-ins paid for by we don’t know who, regard the Constitution as a racist document written by racists, because it required the return of run-away property (slaves) to their owners. The rabble is incapable of comprehending that in the 18th century slavery was legal and a part of many societies. The ignorant rabble believe that slavery was a product not of an absence of a labor force but of white hate of darker-skinned people. The liberal/progressive/left teach that whites enslaved blacks because whites are racists.

As Roger D.McGrath makes clear in the June 2017 issue of Chronicles, and as innumerable historians such as the socialist Karl Polanyi have made clear, every race has been enslaved. In North America the Irish were bought and sold. But ideologues selling hate don’t care about facts. Spreading hate is their purpose, truth be damned. As the liberal/progressive/left is primarily white, the hate that they preach is going to come back and bite them. Hard.

When you consider that the white populations in the US, UK, Europe, and Canada are becoming minority groups due to heavy non-white immigration and the large differences in fertility rates, what is the consequence for whites in the future of being portrayed as hated oppressors? It is not possible to teach hate and not expect it to be expressed in political action. Will white people become in their own countries like Jews in Nazi Germany?

The French writer Jean Raspail explored this question in 1973 in The Camp of the Saints. Forty-four years ago the book was a best seller. My guess is that today reading it or even mentioning it is considered proof that you are a racist. There are so many limits on what can be discussed today that awareness of the present era is denied to those living in it.

On September 12 while I was beset by Hurricane Irma, which deposited a large red oak tree on my house and kept me locked in a mountain community with blocked roads for three days without telephone, Chris Roberts (no relation) writing in the online Unz Review reminded us of the prophetic story of the collapse of the French nation in the face of non-white immigration.

This is more or less what is happening today, not only to France but to the entire Western world. Perhaps the whites deserve it. Perhaps it will be an improvement. But the fact is that no one is permitted to say anything about it. Marine Le Pen says France is for the French, not for Africa and the Middle East, and she and her political party are said to be racists, fascists, nazis because she says France is for the French.

This is what Jean Raspail almost a half century ago said would happen. Whites would be psychologically unable to defend themselves even though they had overwhelming military and economic power.

Let us consider the massive non-white immigration into the West. The German businesses wanted the Turks as a work force. The American agribusiness, slaughter houses, and construction industry wanted Mexicans as a work force. Canada wanted population. The British and European colonial powers justified their colonialism by making citizenship status available to their colonies. In other words, empire led to reverse invasion. In the 21st century the West is experiencing massive immigration of peoples displaced by Washington’s endless wars and Western economic plundering. We are killing them over there so that they come over here.

Put together high non-white immigration with Identity Politics, which is a creation of Jewish cultural Marxists that has become the official ideology of the West’s liberal/progressive/left, and the result is a possible holocaust for white people. The Jews, who think of themselves as separate from the white goy, are seen by the rest of the world as white and the worst thereof. The originators of Identity Politics themselves will be victims of their own doctrine.

Indeed, Identity Politics prevents white people from recognizing and, if a few do, from protesting their destiny as potential victims of a political doctrine capable of brewing a holocaust.

The West is schizophrenic. On one hand Washington’s continuing slaughter, supported by Canada, Europe, Australia, and the UK, of dark-skinned peoples, serves as proof that the Western world is guilty of murder and plunder of non-white peoples. On the other hand Western governments welcome with open arms the refugees fleeing from the West’s wars and economic oppression. Identity Politics makes certain that Western populations will grovel in guilt even as the Western governments commit more crimes against non-whites, thus ensuring the growth of the immigrant population.

The non-whites will have their revenge. Who is to say the imbecilic whites didn’t bring it upon themselves?

FROM BOLSHEVISM TO THE 75TH TEXAS LEGISLATURE: CONNECTING THE DOTS

 

by Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

“They who say all men are equal speak an undoubted truth, if they mean that all have an equal right to liberty; to their property, and to their protection of the laws.  But they are mistaken if they think men are equal in their station and employments, since they are not so by their talents” (Voltaire).

 

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)

 

I was just now browsing through some old files and came across this. It struck me as to how much worse things have became than they were back in the 90s when this was written. There is just not much left. — jtl, 419

 

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)A Conspiracy of Ideas

I have never accepted the so-called “conspiracy theories” at face value. It is just too hard to envision a bunch of old fat men, dressed in old baggy gray suits, sitting around a big mahogany table, overtly plotting to enslave the rest of us. On the other hand, with a close look at what is happening around us, the play is being acted out just as many of these theories predict.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsYes, there has been a conspiracy, but not an overt conspiracy of men. Instead, it was a conspiracy of ideas that lost our once great Constitutional Republic– little by little–slowly but progressively–more a “death by a thousand cuts” than by traumatic amputation. As William Lind (1997) put it, “The fall of Rome was graceful by comparison.”

How did all this come about? Where did all these ideas that are alien to our culture come from? Was it simply a market response to a spontaneous, radical cultural change that was brought about by a random set of events played out by a random set of independent players? Not hardly.

Combat Shooter's Handbook Critical Theory and Cultural Marxism

A concept, known at the time of its inception as “Critical Theory,” was developed by a group of German intellectuals who founded the Institute of Social Research at Frankfurt University in 1923. Modeled after the Marx-Engles Institute in Moscow, the organization became known as the Frankfort School (Raehn 1997).

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteWhen the Nazis came to power in 1933, these intellectual Marxists fled to the United States. They migrated to major universities like Columbia, Princeton and UC Berkeley where their ideas flourished. The most notable of these were Theodor Adorno, Erich Fromm and Herbett Marcuse (who, during the anti-Vietnam War demonstrations coined the phrase, “make love, not war.”)

These men came to the realization that sociology alone could not effect their “quiet revolution.” They argued that sociology must be supplemented with mass psychology and thereby married Freud and Marx. They hypothesized that “the patriarchal family structure characteristic of bourgeois society produces an authoritarian personality type; an extra-punitive type of person who is predisposed to ethnocentrism and the projection of imperfectly repressed hostility upon out-groups” (Nelson 1994).

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewOf course, they found fertile ground for the propagation and dissemination of their despicable creed on the college campuses in the late 60s and early 70s.  The disease spread rapidly during those years. The primary vehicle was the idealistic boomer elite (AKA the New Totalitarians) who are now in power and control every public institution in our nation (Kelly 1977).

Notably, their progeny includes Betty Friedan who authored The Feminine Mystique, the seminal screed that initiated the destructive feminist movement (Friedan 1963). Another of their more detestable offspring is John Dewey, the first “educator” to advocate the use of public schools as instruments for social change (and who, incidentally, was an open admirer of Mussolini).

Critical Theory was the precursor of “Cultural Marxism,” which is a term used to describe the application to culture of the principles of Carl Marx in a blend with the modern psychological tools of Freud. “Political correctness” is, in fact, Cultural Marxism. The reconstruction of the history of Western Civilization (so prevalent in our universities today) is, in fact, Cultural Marxism.

Of course Cultural Marxism has not been exclusively applied to education–nor did it happen in any sort of straight progression. Collectivists always work through a myriad of political, economic, legal, academic and cultural fronts at the same time. Not always in concert, not always in harmony, but always with the same goal; planned social change–always toward collectivism (Barry, 1999).

Indeed, this marriage of Marx and Freud has produced a “quiet revolution” in the United States that has been systematically unfolding for over 50 years.  How? Through the instillation of guilt, pity, shame, fear, anger and hatred into the American psyche. The ultimate outcome is fear–fear of being labeled or associated with such words as “prejudice,” discrimination,” bigotry,” racism,” sexism,” and “anti-Semitism” and, as a result, being subjected to uncontrollable rage, intimidation and even terror.

How about their method, their technique? One, among many, of these techniques is group “sensitivity” training. The “change agent” (AKA the “facilitator”) at these sessions will generally work something like this.

Said “facilitator” (a better word would be “manipulator”) will start out by asking people to voice their concerns about (fill in the blank). S/he listens intently, breaks the larger group into small discussion groups and has them make lists, all the while listening and learning something about each member of the target group. S/he will then begin to show his/her real colors by pointing out possible objections to an “undesirable” position but, at this point anyway, s/he is still everybody’s buddy. However, it usually will not be long before s/he becomes the devil’s advocate and pits one sub-group against the other. S/he will question the position of the opposition leader(s), play on the fears of those with weaker convictions and finally drive a wedge between the “pro” and the “con” groups. S/he will make certain participants angry, which is exactly what is intended so as to escalate the tensions. Goals will become muddled and, in the end, the individuals against (fill in the blank) will be shut out and the desired outcome will be achieved.

These “sensitivity training” techniques are strikingly similar to the methods used by the Chinese Communists to indoctrinate Prisoners of War in Korea. These methods were based on Pavlov’s experiments with dogs and the best available data indicate that they worked very well: only 5% resisted, 15% were consistent, dedicated, hard-core collaborators with the enemy and the other 80% were rendered “passive” and stood for nothing but their own survival.

Yes, there is a direct thread that runs from Pavlov through Marx through the Frankfort School through the US university system and into “sensitivity training.”

Sadly, higher education was one of the first institutions to succumb and has been a primary perpetrator. For example, a current blatantly stated goal of academia is “decentering: forming interdisciplinary courses, encouraging the historical, political, and literary voices of previously marginalized people.”

If you doubt it, visit any major university in America and peruse the curriculum. You will find a vast array of non-content subjects and even whole departments—everything from women’s “studies” to race based “cultural studies” to sexual orientation “studies” etc. ad nauseum of non-substantive drivel. Phrases like diversity, pluralistic community, moral imperative, enrichment of our community, multiculturalism, tolerance and pluralism are perennially on the lips of university administrators. These are the principles and slogans of the “victim’s” revolution.

Such foolishness is not confined to “higher” education. Ask any primary or secondary school child what s/he is studying in school. You will find that teaching methods are designed to “explore the child’s feelings” and build “self-esteem”—even in math, science and English classes. Teachers are no longer teachers. They are now “facilitators” —amateur group therapists applying “sensitivity” training techniques, which more closely resemble psychotherapy than education. This shift to a “value neutral” mode of teaching has created a generation of moral illiterates who can “get in touch with their own feelings” but know nothing about their own culture.

Very often parents are unaware of such methods because of a deliberate policy of bootlegging the “values” stuff under other titles. For example, if parents object to the “new values clarification” program, school officials simply change the name to “life skills” and do it anyway.

The private sector has suffered a direct assault on property rights. EEO and related legislation has effectively made the federal government the owner of all organizations, even those that are nominally considered “private”, for-profit businesses. Traditionally, only the owner of a business had the right to determine what sort of workplace h/she preferred. Now the State has usurped that right and effectively replaced the owner by dictating the workplace environment.

For example, business and industry have known for years that the most effective way of choosing employees is by a simple, 10 minute, intelligence test. Overwhelmingly, the more intelligent folks do well on the job. However, using that method for selecting employees is now against the law. Seems that intelligence (which is 80% or more heritable) has been declared “discriminatory.”

What these egalitarian collectivists fail to see or choose to ignore is that, in a single day of operation of their programs of affirmative action, minority-owned business “set-asides,” etc, they do more to promote race and gender-consciousness…than the combined efforts throughout the years of all the so-called “hate groups” (Nelson 1994).

And Now Into the Lone Star State

The 75th Texas Legislature mandated that the Texas Commission for Human Rights (TCHR) develop EEO training programs required for employees of all state agencies. The legislation provides that state funds will be withheld from agencies that do not complete the required mandatory training for employees using the TCHR materials. Thus, training programs and materials were developed in compliance with Chapter 21, Sec. 21.010 of the Texas Labor Code.

Selected state employees were informed that the legislation provides an employer “the authority to require any training that the employer feels is in the best interest of the establishment” and given one month to complete the course.

In other words, this “training” is under duress and therefore non-contractual. However, few wish to issue challenge as “the system” threatens the use force or violence as a means of dealing with dissenters. (Yes, threatening or taking ones livelihood because of his/her political beliefs is a severe form of violence.)

Since this statute outlaws any “hostile environment regarding one’s gender, sexual preference, race, religion, age, or political beliefs,” it is self-contradictory. If the statute itself violates a person’s political beliefs, then it thereby creates a “hostile environment” for that person. In other words, it undermines individual rights in the name of “individual rights.”

There seems to be a lot of that sort of thing going on in our world nowadays.

America’s Hamiltonian Empire of Lies

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsIn his essay, “Anatomy of the State,” Murray Rothbard wrote of how states preserve their power with a number of tools, most notably an alliance with “intellectuals.”  In return for power, positions, and pelf, the “intellectuals” work diligently to persuade “the majority” that “their government is good, wise and, at least, inevitable.”  This is the “the vital stock task of the intellectuals.”  The “molding of opinion” is what “the State most desperately needs” if it is to maintain is powers, wrote Rothbard.  The citizens themselves do not invent theories of the benevolent state; that is the job of the “intellectuals.”

Combat Shooter's Handbook  In his outstanding new book, How Alexander Hamilton Screwed Up America (foreword by Ron Paul), historian Brion McClanahan explains with sterling scholarship how one “intellectual” in particular, Alexander Hamilton, invented out of whole cloth a mythical founding of the American state that bears no resemblance at all to the actual, historical founding.  His intellectual successors, most notably Supreme Court justices John Marshall, Joseph Story, and Hugo Black, cemented this myth of the benevolent, consolidated, monopolistic state through decades of legal opinions based on a mountain of lies.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteThis of course is exactly what John C. Calhoun observed during his time when he wrote in his 1850 Disquisition on Government that a written constitution would inevitably be “rewritten” by “the party of government” in a way that would neuter it as a source of limitations on governmental powers.

Hamilton has become “the new hero of the Left,” writes McClanahan, for the Left has finally realized that he was “the architect of modern big 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) government in America,” something that many conservatives have long failed to realize.  Hamilton’s voluminous writings formed the bedrock for generations of legalistic arguments that perverted the Constitution and created the “insane modern leftist legal world.”  It was Hamilton and his ideological heirs who invented the “loose construction” and “implied powers” theories of the constitution, which has so “screwed up” America.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) McClanahan shows what a duplicitous liar Hamilton was, speaking out of both sides of his mouth, saying one thing in his Federalist Papers essays, and then spending the rest of his life doing exactly the opposite.  He defended states’ rights and federalism in these essays but when pressed by Jefferson and Madison, he “would often backtrack and advance positions he favored during the Philadelphia Convention, namely for a supreme central authority with virtually unlimited power, particularly for the executive branch.”  This was “the real Hamilton,” who “made a habit of lying when the need arose.”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)It was Hamilton who first spread the outrageous, a historical lie that the states were never sovereign and that the Constitution was somehow ratified by “the whole people” and not by state conventions, as required by Article 7 of the Constitution itself.  It was Hamilton who Calhoun must have been thinking about when he warned of “intellectuals” reinterpreting the constitution in a way that would essentially destroy it.  Hamilton’s lifelong goal, as McClanahan demonstrates, was to subjugate the citizens of the states to the central government and render the states irrelevant and powerless.  The most Hamiltonian of all presidents, Abraham Lincoln, finally achieved this goal.

A Handbook for Ranch Managers  Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewThe Machiavellian Hamilton as Treasury Secretary assumed the state war debts as a means of creating a giant system of political patronage.  He put unemployed war veterans on the dole, thereby initiating the American welfare state.  He led an invasion of Pennsylvania with 15,000 conscripts to attempt to put down the Whiskey Rebellion.  Nothing came of his invasion since all the whiskey tax “rebels” were pardoned by George Washington.  Nevertheless, the invasion served Hamilton’s purpose of allowing him to denounce all resisters of state power as somehow being clones of the violent French Jacobins.

The subject of a national bank run by politicians out of the national capital was discussed at the constitutional convention and decisively rejected.  Hamilton rewrote that history, too, to make the case for the constitutionality of central banking. His worshipful disciple, Chief Justice John Marshall, would cement this idea into place in his McCullock v. Maryland decision.  Hamilton’s bogus arguments in favor of a central bank were “a turning point in American constitutional history” because that is where he invented the fantasy of “implied powers” of the Constitution.  Once this path was taken, the constitution had the potential of becoming nothing more than a rubber stamp of approval of anything the state ever wished to do, limited only by the imaginations of Hamiltonian members of the judiciary

John Marshall was a virtual intellectual clone of Hamilton who spoke favorably of federalism, but codified federal supremacy and “implied powers” in his Supreme Court decisions, described in clear-as-a-bell writing by McClanahan.

Even more destructive of constitutional liberty were the writings of that great Bostonian blowhard, Justice Joseph Story (“Marshall’s right-hand man”), whose Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, written while he was both a Supreme Court justice and a Harvard law professor, have exerted enormous influence on the American legal and political systems. Like Marshall and Hamilton, Story “suffered from historical amnesia” and “manufactured an image of the American founding and American government that did not match the historical record.”  He lied through his teeth, in other words, to advance the idea that the founding fathers created a consolidated, monopolistic, centralized state even more powerful and monopolistic than the British empire against which they had fought a war of secession.  His lies that the states were never sovereign, that the central government is “sovereign” in all matters, implied powers, and all the rest, were repeated by Abraham Lincoln, beginning with his first inaugural address, as he “justified” committing treason by levying war upon the Southern states (the exact definition of treason in Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution).  Hence, it is the Hamiltonian, nationalist myth, not Jeffersonian states’ rights and federalism, that made the “Civil War” inevitable.  All of this, McClanahan points out, was always thought to be necessary by generations of Hamiltonians if they were to ever implement their economic policy program that Hamilton himself labeled “the American System.”  This “system” of protectionist tariffs, central banking, corporate welfare, and a large public debt was anything but “American.”  It was the rotten, corrupt, British system known as “mercantilism” brought to America.

Then there is the twentieth-century Hamiltonian Justice Hugo Black, FDR’s favorite Ku Kluk Klansmen.  Nominated to the Supreme Court in 1937, Black had been a member of the KKK ever since the early 1920s.  He used his association with the KKK, and its “nationalist agenda” of ridding America of “immigrants, blacks, and Jews,” and its “anti-Catholic agenda,” to become prominent in Alabama politics.  His rabid support for FDR’s presidential bids won him a seat on the Supreme Court.

Hugo Black’s main demolition of constitutional liberty came in the form of his opinions regarding the “incorporation” of the Bill of Rights to include the states.  This was never intended by the founders, who said nothing in opposition to the state-sanctioned “official” religions that existed at the time, among other things.

Thanks to Hamiltonian Hugo, virtually every issue facing Americans today is a federal issue.  His “incorporation doctrine” was the final nail in the coffin of American federalism, as McClanahan explains.  This is why the federal judiciary claims “sovereignty” over almost everything, from same-sex marriage to “transgendger bathrooms,” all aspects of the welfare state – everything and anything.  This is Hamilton’s America – a leftist lawyereaucracy hell bent on imposing totalitarian rule on the rest of us.

Don’t waste your money on that stupid New York City play about “Hamilton.”  Spend a tiny fraction of that theater ticket money on How Alexander Hamilton Screwed Up America instead, and educate yourself and all of those around you about their real American history.

The Problems of Today’s Black Americans: The Welfare State’s Legacy

The undeniable truth is that neither slavery nor Jim Crow nor the harshest racism has decimated the black family the way the welfare state has.

 

 

That the problems of today’s black Americans are a result of a legacy of slavery, racial discrimination and poverty has achieved an axiomatic status, thought to be self-evident and beyond question. This is what academics and the civil rights establishment have taught. But as with so much of what’s claimed by leftists, there is little evidence to support it.

The No. 1 problem among blacks is the effects stemming from a very weak family structure. Children from fatherless homes are likelier to drop out of high school, die by suicide, have behavioral disorders, join gangs, commit crimes and end up in prison. They are also likelier to live in poverty-stricken households. But is the weak black family a legacy of slavery? In 1960, just 22 percent of black children were raised in single-parent families. Fifty years later, more than 70 percent of black children were raised in single-parent families. Here’s my question: Was the increase in single-parent black families after 1960 a legacy of slavery, or might it be a legacy of the welfare state ushered in by the War on Poverty?

According to the 1938 Encyclopaedia of the Social Sciences, that year 11 percent of black children were born to unwed mothers. Today about 75 percent of black children are born to unwed mothers. Is that supposed to be a delayed response to the legacy of slavery? The bottom line is that the black family was stronger the first 100 years after slavery than during what will be the second 100 years.

At one time, almost all black families were poor, regardless of whether one or both parents were present. Today roughly 30 percent of blacks are poor. However, two-parent black families are rarely poor. Only 8 percent of black married-couple families live in poverty. Among black families in which both the husband and wife work full time, the poverty rate is under 5 percent. Poverty in black families headed by single women is 37 percent. The undeniable truth is that neither slavery nor Jim Crow nor the harshest racism has decimated the black family the way the welfare state has.

The black family structure is not the only retrogression suffered by blacks in the age of racial enlightenment. In every census from 1890 to 1954, blacks were either just as active as or more so than whites in the labor market. During that earlier period, black teen unemployment was roughly equal to or less than white teen unemployment. As early as 1900, the duration of black unemployment was 15 percent shorter than that of whites; today it’s about 30 percent longer. Would anyone suggest that during earlier periods, there was less racial discrimination? What goes a long way toward an explanation of yesteryear and today are the various labor laws and regulations promoted by liberals and their union allies that cut off the bottom rungs of the economic ladder and encourage racial discrimination.

Labor unions have a long history of discrimination against blacks. Frederick Douglass wrote about this in his 1874 essay titled “The Folly, Tyranny, and Wickedness of Labor Unions,” and Booker T. Washington did so in his 1913 essay titled “The Negro and the Labor Unions.” To the detriment of their constituents, most of today’s black politicians give unquestioning support to labor laws pushed by unions and white liberal organizations.

Then there’s education. Many black 12th-graders deal with scientific problems at the level of whites in the sixth grade. They write and do math about as well as white seventh- and eighth-graders. All of this means that an employer hiring or a college admitting the typical black high school graduate is in effect hiring or admitting an eighth-grader. Thus, one should not be surprised by the outcomes.

The most damage done to black Americans is inflicted by those politicians, civil rights leaders and academics who assert that every problem confronting blacks is a result of a legacy of slavery and discrimination. That’s a vision that guarantees perpetuity for the problems.

The Alt Right vs. Cultural Marxism

 The biggest problem that Paul sees is that neither the left or the right have made liberty – both economic and political – a priority. In fact, just the opposite is happening. Both the left and the right are moving in a more authoritarian direction.

 

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsDid I hear somebody say, “There ain’t a dime’s worth of difference in either of them?”. — jtl, 419

 

By at Zero Hedge via LewRockwell.com

 

Despite recently being demonetized by YouTube, possibly for his anti-establishment views and slamming President Trump’s decision to increase troop levels in Afghanistan, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul is back with a video addressing the widening left-right political divide in the US – and the role that the “immoral use” of government force has played in fomenting the US’s present political crisis.

Claiming that the US is “witnessing a battle between authoritarian groups in America”, the prominent libertarian and former politician says that the “Alt-Right” and Cultural Marxists are fighting to control a government that is bankrupt, doesn’t follow the Constitution, and controls a foreign empire that is running on fumes.  Ron Paul describes our dilemma.

“Most Americans agree the violent confrontation between the alt-right and the cultural Marxist is serious, dangerous and getting worse. Understanding economics, cultural differences and the acceptance of authoritarianism is required to find the answer to the crisis.

Rejecting a society based on personal liberty led to the conflict we are now witnessing: replacing authoritarianism with volunteerism must be our goal. The immoral use of government force caused this crisis and expanding it will only increase the hatred between the two sides.

Though there are leaders on both sides promoting violence, large numbers are attracted to the raging culture war for emotional reasons in response to the lies and the incitement by those whose ulterior motive is seeking power, wealth and promoting a dangerous new world order.”

Combat Shooter's HandbookThe biggest problem that Paul sees is that neither the left or the right have made liberty – both economic and political – a priority. In fact, just the opposite is happening. Both the left and the right are moving in a more authoritarian direction.

Meanwhile, the left’s penchant for labeling all of their ideological opponents as Nazis and racists is helping to sow chaos and division, Paul says.

“One side has been labeled the alt-right, the other cultural Marxism. The right would like to reduce the debate to the differences between Communism and a populist government that emphasizes caring for Americans over foreigners. The Left would have us believe it’s merely a conflict with supporters of racism and injustice and cultural Marxism. Neither side speaks of Liberty. The alt-right is made up of conservatives, populists, and pro white enthusiasts, but all are labeled Nazis and fascists by the left.”

“Some are just fed up with the false charges and the penalties toward whites by leftist racists and the extremism of political correctness. The vicious labeling of all those who are frustrated and who join with those who are angry as Nazis and racist is only for the purpose of creating chaos. The left demands that all Trump supporters fit into this category. This is the strategy for fomenting race riots and civil war. No doubt Trump makes himself vulnerable to these inaccurate and wild charges by his enemies. The left promotes cultural Marxism and class warfare yet there are fellow travelers who represent typical liberal activists progressives and white haters. Many on the Left generally despise any minority who chooses to be a conservative or libertarian.”

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteLeftists, Paul says, are far more cynical than their idealistic proclamations would suggest. White leftists only see minorities as important within the context of their votes, and are quick to treat minorities who identify as conservative or libertarian as traitors to the cause. Meanwhile, neither side understands how liberty leads to economic prosperity for the largest number of citizens.

“Too many on the left see minorities as only important when their votes can be corralled. From their viewpoint as minorities, well-being success must come only from benefiting from doctrines promoted by forced wealth redistribution by the liberal left it’s all about control it’s cynical racism.”

“The philosophic issues that divide us are what matters. Both sides accept the principle of government aggression as a proper tool of government. Neither side understands how true freedom leads to the prosperity that both sides pay lip service to. Neither side understands the shortcomings of deceptive, short-lived prosperity that comes with government deficits and monetary inflation which always ends badly, especially for the people who are supposed to be benefiting by government welfare spending. The ending of such a period of artificial wealth is now apparent and since it’s not understood by either side of the current raging conflict, both are proposing different government solutions with sharp disagreements in the blame game.”

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewBoth the left and the right claim to be the torchbearers of the American experiment. But neither side cares about what the Constitution says, Paul said. Furthermore, both sides banded together to support the Bush doctrine, a willingness to countenance foreign interventionism that persists across the modern political spectrum. Leftists and conservatives take advantage of superficial differences to divide people – the left via identity politics and the right via their racist views.

“Both sides claim patriotic loyalty and ownership of the American tradition. Neither group cares about what the Constitution says both sides support America’s world Empire its militarism the military industrial complex and horribly dangerous Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war. Neither side condemns our aggression or foreign interventionism. There is extensive support by both for economic planning by government though in different degrees and for different purposes.”

This means no complaints about protectionism, Federal Reserve power or subsidies to the special interest groups. For our bipartisan leaders, it is only who gets to distribute the loot that matters. Identity politics has taken over in forming alliances. This encourages lying, race preferences demagoguery and inciting hatred since the concept of Liberty is something that applies to individuals rather than special interest groups it is therefore rejected.”

Liberty is not something that can be distributed according to the various groups that claim victimization and a right to other people’s earnings. The tool used especially by the far left is extreme political correctness that regulates speech by claiming hateful motivation by anyone with whom they disagree. These charges are inevitably spread with a broad brush by a complicit media advocating both types of authoritarianism. Left and right purposely divide people by natural and acceptable differences. Pursuing the cause of Liberty unites all those who honestly seek peace and prosperity in distinction from those who resort to authoritarianism. Divisiveness will cause both sides to fail with their half-hearted efforts to force an escalation of violence and the destruction of the middle class.”

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) Unfortunately, neither the left or the right has expressed concern with the “deeply flawed” US monetary system, Paul said. The Federal Reserve has been allowed to debase the US dollar through the complicity of both left- and right-leaning politicians. And now, as Paul notes, the bills are all coming due.

Neither side will face up to the economic reality of a deeply flawed economic system and the pending collapse of the American Empire. Sadly neither side complains about the danger of the Bush Doctrine of preemptive strikes and decisions being made to go to war without congressional approval, the dependency on deficit spending, and the monetary mischief of the Fed. The bills are now coming due and the political chatter associated with the current social strife serves to distract from the philosophical impurities from which we have been infected for many decades. The number of enemies that we have generated by our foreign policy is ignored and the problem made worse by our economic and military meddling around the world our inability to pay our bills and meet our unfunded liabilities will be the limiting factor.”

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualIn short, the US’s economic and military meddling around the world have led to a reliance on unsustainable deficit spending. This, Paul contends, is the greatest threat facing American society – and neither side is talking about a solution.

Phony patriotism is strong leverage against a population ignorant of the ways of treason by its own government.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsThe majority of Americans today confuse the words “patriotism” and “nationalism.” There is a very important distinction between the two. Patriotism is a healthy, moral-ethical love of one’s country, its land, its people their customs and traditions. It is not accompanied by any desire to initiate force or violence against anyone. Thomas Jefferson and Robert E. Lee were patriots and men of high moral values and ethical principles. The Declaration of Independence, a secession document, and the Articles of Confederation are patriotic documents. Neither contains any suggestion for the initiation of force or violence against persons or their property against their will.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps InstituteOn the other hand, nationalism is the immoral love of one’s government and usually involves a desire to aggress against or tyrannize others. Abraham Lincoln, Lyndon Johnson, George W. Bush and Barrack Obama were (are) nationalists. The Gettysburg Address, the Pledge of Allegiance, the Presidential War Powers Act the (intentionally misnamed) Patriot Act are nationalist documents. All imply aggression against persons and property—force and violence applied by one group against other groups. — jtl,419

Combat Shooter's HandbookMy friends, it is frightening how simple we are and how easily we are manipulated simply because we are intellectually lazy.

The U.S. establishment has confused cause and effect by and through a flag-waving mania in America. “Patriotism” throughout history has covered a multitude of mischief. We are seeing it now!

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewPhony patriotism is strong leverage against a population ignorant of the ways of treason by its own government. I also have no doubt that U.S. history is full of wars “for democracy” killing millions under the propaganda of patriotism with the majority support of the people and the full support of all but a small cadre of “elected representatives” — who are paid by the federal government, incidentally. In addition the millions of foreign dead, these wars have left hundreds of thousands of American military members dead or maimed physically and/or emotionally.

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 whole world knows about the U.S. military industrial complex war machine and its pursuit of profits. But Americans tend to turn a blind eye.

When George Washington said “government is force,” he meant that government is force against its own people.

Since by definition government is force, then it follows that government will use any ruse imaginable to increase its power. Increased use of government force or power could backfire unless skillfully handled and justified in the public mind. Therefore governments rarely take action unless accompanied by skillful propaganda.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)  The brouhaha over certain NFL players’ refusal to stand for the playing of the Star Spangled Banner has erupted anew. The reaction of most Americans — who claim to believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights — is that this expression cannot be tolerated… it is un-American… it is “unpatriotic.”

But is it? Or is it not the most American of all things to resist and rebel against what we perceive as tyranny and its symbols?

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)If we deny one — whether through intimidation and threats, monetary sanctions or government force — his rights, are we not creating a situation where rights are just privileges that can be denied on a whim? If we support police power to invade our homes and wallets and steal our property just because government has made it “legal,” are we not again conceding that rights are merely privileges?

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualYou cannot say, “I believe in the 1st Amendment, but…; I believe in the 2nd Amendment, but…; I believe in the 4th Amendment, but…” There is no but.

And if that government making “legal” the assaults on our liberty is represented by a symbol, shouldn’t we conclude that that symbol is a symbol of tyranny? I wrote about the phony patriotism of flag worship when the Colin Kaepernick stir occurred last year. In light of the new kerfuffle over NFL players refusing to stand, and comments to some of our columns on preserving liberty of late, I felt it was time to run it again. Here it is:

One day one of my bantams started sitting on eggs to hatch its chicks. Something happened to her eggs but she continued to sit, so I decided to put a duck egg under her. Duck eggs are at least three times bigger than bantam eggs and take a few days longer to hatch, but she dutifully sat on the egg several days longer. She hatched the duckling and, as you can imagine, it thought that his world was normal and that the bantam hen was his mother.

The duckling eventually grew into a full sized mallard duck, probably five or six times the size of its bantam mother. The full-grown duck would follow its hen mother around as would normal chicks. It was a funny sight to watch.

But I remember thinking, even as a small boy, that the duck’s entire reality was that the bantam hen was his mother and that was the way the world worked. He had no need to consider anything else.

This is the world of the American people today. Their perceptions of reality control them and they who control their perceptions control the American people.

Our perception of America has always been that she is the mother country and ordained by God, good and just and a beacon of freedom. This is hammered into our psyches from our early days.

From pre-school up, we are taught to worship the state. I don’t know if it is still done, but in the public (non)education system, for many years, schoolchildren across the South — and elsewhere, I suppose — recited the Pledge of Allegiance each morning. Political rallies and government meetings are still often begun with a recitation of the pledge.

People say it with patriotic fervor, with their hands placed dutifully on their hearts.

Sporting events, political rallies and other public venues are often kicked off with the playing and/or singing of the Star Spangled Banner. Before the song begins, people are instructed to rise, men to remove their hats,and people place their hands over their hearts. They don’t realize its value as a propaganda tool.

We have come to equate the flag, the pledge and the national anthem with patriotism, and patriotism with government, country and support for government, support for foreign wars and veterans. Anything less is “un-American.”

Beyond its patriot fervor is the almost religious fervor and religious symbolism of the American people’s actions when the pledge and the national anthem begin: the ritual standing, removal of hats, placing of hands and rote recitation. In the book of Daniel, Israelites Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah (Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego) refused to worship the golden image of Nebuchadnezzar contrary to the king’s decree. The king ordered them to be thrown into the furnace after it was turned up to seven times its normal temperature.

NFL player Colin Kaepernick created a stir last week when he refused to stand for the national anthem. He was not subsequently ordered into the furnace by the king, but he was burned symbolically by many football fans who torched their jerseys. Americans fumed that he should “leave” America if he can’t support the flag and that he had disrespected the flag, the nation and veterans.

What are we saying when we say that someone “disrespected the flag,”  “disrespected the country,” “disrespected the veterans” if he chooses to not stand for the national anthem? What is the flag but a piece of cloth? By the reaction to Kaepernick, it seems it has become more of a golden calf to represent mother country or the god of government.

Our mother has become a witch. Yes, same symbols, same flag, same pledge of allegiance, but a decadent spirit controlling the perceptions of the American people, keeping them on the animal farm (controlling their perceptions) long enough to impoverish and enslave them.

Time and gradualism can change a system all the way from human liberty to slavery (the animal farm) over a few generations without anyone being aware except a very few, those who ask questions.

“America, love it or leave it,” is a tired canard. One cannot leave it except at great cost. Recall that in 1860-1861 11 states attempted to “leave it” in order to preserve their liberty and rights as sovereign states. They were branded as “insurrectionists” and attacked by the War Party and the result was their economic and social destruction, subjugation and the deaths of some 850,000 people (the equivalent of about 8.5 million people today). When one talks of secession today he’s branded as a racist, crazy or a radical and told secession is “illegal.”

One can love his country but hate his government and its actions. I love America but not the people who control America and its government. I love America, but its rulers are alien to individual freedom, its government now anathema to liberty.

If the flag is symbolic of government and that government lies at every turn, enslaves its people, steals from their labor, passes laws that are an execration to their Christian faith, takes from them their liberty, mandates the murder of 1 million babies a year, imports tens of thousands of immigrants to replace American workers and drive down wages, and that makes war on other countries that have not threatened us, why should any acknowledge its presence with more than a sneer?

Wars are not for patriotism and “democracy,” as we are propagandized. And our freedom has not been threatened by outside forces in 200 years. Wars are to kill; i.e., mass ritual murder. Additionally, big business and globalist banksters in league with Satan reap massive profits for the killing and sacrifice of young men (lambs) on all sides of combat.

If the flag is symbolic of the Constitution, that Constitution died long ago — destroyed by a crony railroad lawyer and mercantilist who made war on a sovereign people to benefit monied interests.

If the flag is symbolic of freedom, that freedom no longer exists — stolen long ago by crony corporations and globalist banksters and unaccountable oligarchical black-robed satanists and idol worshippers who usurped their authority created laws out of thin air under the guise of “interpreting the Constitution” a dictate not granted them under the original document.

The phony form of patriotism instilled within the population is strong leverage against independent thinking, keeping people ignorant of the treason by our own government.

America today is a more advanced state of fascism than World War II Germany and Italy. Fascism never identifies itself as totalitarianism. It always calls itself democracy.

Democracy is the politically correct word and cover term for modern American fascism.

American fascism has all the attributes and trappings of benevolent totalitarianism. No, benevolent totalitarianism is not an oxymoron.

The word benevolent in this instance means that the general perception of the population of the American system is that it is benevolent. This is only to say that modern America is full-blown fascism with a pretty face. It is every bit as deadly to human liberty as any tyranny in history and I would add far more sinister because of its propaganda sophistication.

Any regime that can spin tons of fiat paper money with printing presses or electronically is a slave system regardless of what it calls itself or regardless of the general population’s perception of it.

Our mother has been transformed into a witch no matter how much we love her.

Yours for the truth,

It is the story of the betrayal of an entire generation of Americans and particularly the 40% (of the military aged males) of that generation that fought the Vietnam war.

National Education–It Has Always Been About “Reconstructing” Southern Culture

It seems that the educational messiahs in Washington at that time (ever read about them in your history books?) felt that one of the leading causes of Southern secession was that Southern folks had existed for all those years without the dubious “benefit” of a nationalized school system, and therefore, they were easy prey for “Southern demagogues” to con into helping their states secede from our “indivisible” Union.
The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsIt is still true today. Any parent that would send his/her child to one of those child prisons (aka mandatory government propaganda camp) should be charged with child abuse. — jtl, 419

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute In his book Segregation–Federal Policy or Racism? (Shotwell Publishing, Columbia, South Carolina) author John Chodes noted, on page 53 that: “In 1867, a small agency was created by Congress. It was called the Bureau of Education. It consisted of only five employees: a supervisor and four clerks, ‘to collect such statistics and facts as shall show the condition and progress of education in the several states and territories…as shall aid the people of the United States in the establishment and maintenance of efficient school systems, and otherwise promote the cause of education throughout the country.’ From this miniscule beginning, over time, the Bureau of Education became a gigantic department, nationalizing, controlling, and separating black and white primary and secondary schools by administering the Morrill colleges and absorbing the Freedmen’s Bureau schools into its own bureaucracy.” And we have all been led to believe that the federal Department of Education  didn’t happen until Jimmy Carter brought it in during his one-term presidency as payback to the National Education Association for their support of him. Actually,  it seems that all Carter did was to support the most recent manifestation of something that had really been around, in one form or another, for a very long time.

Combat Shooter's HandbookIt seems that the educational messiahs in Washington at that time (ever read about them in your history books?) felt that one of the leading causes of Southern secession was that Southern folks had existed for all those years without the dubious “benefit” of a nationalized school system, and therefore, they were easy prey for “Southern demagogues” to con into helping their states secede from our “indivisible” Union.

Republican demagogue James P. Wickersham of Pennsylvania observed that: “It was this ignorance that enabled the rebel leaders to create a prejudice in the minds of this class of persons against the North and to induce them to enlist in their armies…As long as they are ignorant they will remain tools of political demagogues and therefore be incapable of self-government. They must be educated;…No state that has passed an act of secession should be allowed to take its former place in the Union without having first incorporated into its constitution a provision for the establishment of a free school system.” Do you begin to see where this has all been going?

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewWhat the honorable Mr. Wickersham is really saying here, in his own unique way, is that most Southern folks have just been paying attention to the wrong set of demagogues. They’ve been listening to Southern ones when they really should have been embracing Northern ones. It seems the Northern demagogues have the (politically) correct slant on all the current issues of the day and, therefore, any state that embraced secession should have to have some sort of Yankee/Marxist public school system firmly in place to brainwash the kiddies before it even dreams of unification with the glorious Union. In other words–“teach your kids to think the same way we’ve taught ours to think–or else!”

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3) This Yankee/Marxist mindset portrays secession as some sort of evil, traitorous act that has to be “educated” out of Southern kids so they will never again be tempted to think along those lines. It would seem, if you look at some of today’s headlines, that the government educational system has been somewhat less than spectacularly successful  in obliterating  the idea of secession. There are some small blessings we can be thankful for!

A Handbook for Ranch Managers Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference ManualContrary to what the promoters of public education have told us for over 150 years now,  secession is not (was not) treason. The Declaration of Independence was a secession document, and three of the states that ratified the Constitution did so with the proviso that, if this new government ended up being detrimental to their states, they reserved the right to remove themselves. Virginia, Rhode Island, and New York all said that, in one form or another, in their ratification ordinances. So if secession had been treasonous then the ratification ordinances of those states should not have been accepted–but they were, and that fact alone, which most of your “history” books leave out, speaks volumes.

National (and it’s never really been local) education has always been about the restructuring of American society and culture and making it into something the Founders would not have recognized, something that the Washington and New York culture-benders wanted it to be. All this blather about “quality education for the kids” to put it bluntly, smells like a fresh West Texas cow chip on a hot day in August. It’s pure bovine fertilizer–and not even the high grade stuff at that!

As far as all the Confederate monuments coming down, what do you think most public schools in the South have been teaching your kids about their ancestors who seceded and fought for the Confederacy? You probably don’t really want to know. But you better start finding out, because the drivel they are pushing down your kids’ throats will affect their future, your grandchildren’s futures and the future of your Southern culture.

Just remember this–if you take nothing else away from what you’ve read here–“Reconstruction” is ongoing. It has never stopped. It may have shifted gears here and there, but it has never ceased. It is as relevant to your lives today as it was to those who surrendered at Appomattox.
