Woman wants to force Muslim business to give her a haircut

February 28, 2014

Muslim refuses to give a woman a haircut for reasons of faith, woman sues to force the business to serve both men and women:
http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2012/11/15/woman_denied_haircut_goes_to_human_rights_tribunal_of_ontario.html

(She is a lesbian who wanted a man’s type of haircut)

This has an easy solution: the non-aggression principle.

If you believe in the non-aggression principle especially, it’s a matter of the freedom from being forced, compelled, to do something under threat.

You don’t have the right to stick a gun in my face and get me to do a day’s work without pay. Slavery for a day.

No matter what some tyrannical law says, no matter whether some illegitimate “government” or police state sycophants say….

Nobody has a right to force a Jewish bakery to sell them a cake with Nazi symbols on it.

Nobody has a right to force a woman to sell them a cake that quote Dan Brown’s favorite fraudulent “feminist gospel” with “Women cannot go to heaven”.

Nobody has a right to force a black artist to paint the slogan “Whites are superior’.

Nobody has a right to force a barber to give a service he does not want to give.

Compelling you to perform a service that you would not do voluntarily, is called involuntary by definition, as in involuntary servitude.

Can’t have a war without soldiers

Congress rolls over for the executive (Ron Paul):

What to do when cops pull you over:

Top brass, military and civilian, were told minutes after it started, about the “terrorist” (their word) Benghazi attack, with no mention of any video, to then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and minutes before they reported on it to the President:

Alcohol: study says it’s the “direct cause” of 80,000 deaths a year in the USA:

The countries with the highest rates of alcohol-related deaths were mostly in Central America, including El Salvador (27.4 out of 100,000 deaths each year), Guatemala (22.3 out of 100,000) and Nicaragua (21.3 out of 100,000).

Overall, men accounted for 84 percent of alcohol-necessary deaths, though the male-to-female ratio varied from country to country. In El Salvador, the risk of a man dying from an alcohol-necessary cause was 27.8 times higher than that of a woman, while in the United States and Canada, the risk was 3.2 times higher.

There were also differences in age groups for alcohol mortality between countries. In Argentina, Canada, Costa Rica and the U.S., the highest mortality rates occurred in individuals between 50 and 69 years of age. In Brazil, Ecuador and Venezuela, the highest mortality rates were seen in individuals between 40 and 49 years of age.

No Such Agency also gets info from offline computers:
…And so China wants international rules on computer spying. Hahaha. Spying for me but not for thee.
How about we all stop our governments from doing all that spying on us.

Bumper stickers: “Stop watching us”…

“The NSA: The only part of government that actually listens to you”.

And they’re already bringing criminal charges against political opponents in Wisconsin:
…Who said political authorities would ever respect free speech?

 

What is really behind the Chamber of Commerce hate for the “Tea Party” people, Really?

January 11, 2014

Conservatives question US Chamber’s plan to spend millions to defeat Tea Party style candidates in 2014 | Fox News:
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/01/11/conservatives-question-us-chamber-plan-to-spend-millions-to-defeat-tea-party/

The article says that it’s their reaction to the so-called “tea party” shutdown of government over Obamacare last year (2013).

Really? Or is it –just maybe– because the “Tea Party” identifying Congressmen are hanging out shingles on their doors that say “No Sale”?

Sure, a few really big corporations lost some government money during that shutdown. Mr. Unofficial Fabian Socialist of the left-fascist faction made sure of that, as anyone who paid attention to the details knows.

But then they kept on going.

Maybe it’s the tea-party’s major issue that has them scared: That fedgov has gotten way too big, and handles way too much money.

To me, it was a fascinating turn of events. I never thought the Chamber of Commerce, that claims to be the voice of business and –so we thought– free enterprise, would be so blatant and public about advocating against freedom of enterprise and relief for the “Taxed Enough Already”. But there they go, they are.

I thought they might grumble silently, because the businesses that have survived the Fed, the income tax, regulation, the New Deal, the War on Poverty, the wars in Europe, the welfare-warfare state, and the lead-up to the rollout of the Unaffordable Sick Act (aka Obamacare; or )

Of course it’s the small businesses that cannot afford the deep-pocket lobbyists who really are sick and tired of fedgov burdens and chains on their economic freedoms. The last thing they want to do is to kill their business by endangering their customers. But government-protected businesses have to be big, for the kind of results demanded and for the influence they get.

So, there you go. America’s biggest corporations have declared themselves full supporters of left-fascist government. I warned conservatives in the Bush years that the totalitarian surveillance state would be turned on them with a changing to the Hustler-in-Chief. I warned the “liberals” and the “Democrats” that there was no difference.

Sure, Obama would accelerate Bush’s push to expand the welfare state, but then he would also continue and expand the warfare state. This is a big-business unspoken understanding, but know this: the biggest among them would rather lose the medical industry to Obama’s”care” than to give up their now full-blown partnership with fedgov’s force-enforced domination of the economy.

Obama’s cabinet picks, and especially his “czars” (short for little Caesars) demonstrated this clearly. He had people from Wall Street, Big Bankers including Goldman Sachs, Big Industry, leftists from Academia, including open Communists, the environmentally religious, all thrown into the same mix and working together.

Really big business marries Big Brother, a trade made in hell. Big Business sells its wares to fedgov, and fedgov operatives sell favors to Big Business.

Yep. Congress has about a 9% approval rate and a general 90-95 percent re-election rate, where it jumped to after passage of the McCain Feingold Incumbent Protection-Racket Campaign Finance Reform. Before that act it was already hard enough to unseat one of this most despised political club in the country at an 80 percent re-election rate.

GALATIANS 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Are we “safe” yet?

December 26, 2013

So said a lover of state security to me:

Therein lies the problem.  You say these words, you believe these words, 
but what you really mean is you are free to do whatever you wish to do 
and everyone else is free to do whatever you wish to allow them to do.

Oh yes, lover of state security, that is the perfect definition of totalitarian government, which lies at the end of the left-fascist utopian road down to the valley of perdition, where they take care of you their own way whether you like it or not.

(MEMO: WE DON’T LIKE IT!)

Better than FREEDOM is security, eh? Oh yeah, you’re so safe now right?

Well, let’s see how safe we are:

..body search and seizure in every flight,

every one of your phone calls recorded and meta-data collected in case they want to look at it later,

stop-all-citizens and demand-papers checkpoints whenever they feel like it,

dragging people out of ALL their houses and searching them for bad guys and roughing them up if they question you, “voluntarily” wink wink,

looting of the economy for big money banks,

currency whiplash by the currency kings and money changers,

dozens of bullets confusing an unarmed and confused young mother before ever seeing a weapon,

muzzles on all types of religious expression but especially the Christian kind,

targeting of political opponents by the tax collectors,

a “kill list” with whomever is a threat on it,

extortion to pay for procedures against conscience,

the entire economy looted to force the whole country into risky insurance schemes they hated,

losing their insurance and doctors,

drones provoking anti-American animosity around the world,

the government telling you forget about defending yourself (leave it to us, we’ll make a report when we get there),

extortion to pay for chemicals that prohibit the free exercise of your religion,

longest and highest time of unemployment in the U.S. since the Great Depression,

$17 TRILLION debt setting up for a dollar crash that will set off the most violent domestic social disruption in American history since the War Between the States,

a treaty that invites Russian forces into the United States in case of any domestic self-defense against government attacks,

“fusion centers” to turn your local home-town sheriff into an armed enforcement organ of this security state,

naming of peaceful religious and para-religious groups in lists of official bad guys,

THE LISTING OF THE MOST PEACEFUL AND ANTI-WAR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN HISTORY as one to watch together with the most violent organizations in the world,

the overthrowing of governments around the world, something that American left-fascists used to oppose but now demand, led by this security state,

Pentagon-designed programs spawned into all federal agencies by their original “Total Information Awareness” project,

even their own security state agents shot up with hallucinogens to study the effect,

syphilis deliberately injected into citizens to study the effects of infection,

dangerous and poisonous industrial chemicals approved for human food,

When you ask a fox to guard your hen house, don’t be surprised if it starts eating your children.

And you feel “safer” with all that than without it?! 

 

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.

Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Taki Mag says A&E dirty trick is (“just”?) a publicity stunt

December 25, 2013

The takimag article is here.

It’s an unlikely event, though, unless the idea was to subtly promote an LGBT-friendly brand among the lucrative “gay market” for the long term.

Maybe some execs there have seen the future coming with an officially sanctioned persecution of Bible-believers that will rival those of Rome at least, if not the much worse mass murders of same under leftist and fascist regimes in the 20th century and continuing today, to follow on the heels of the censorship of speech favoring Jesus Christ out of government.

Right on, except that there is a little more to this story, “this story” being A&E’s duplicity and hypocrisy and according to this story, simply pulling a PR stunt. In spite of some independent souls actually producing spiritually and culturally healthy fare from there, the figurative Hollywood “establishment” cares more about muzzling criticisms of its orgiastic contortions, than it does about the money you know they want.

In March 2013 they had already apparently requested the Duck folks accept cutting out the “Jesus” word or bleeping it out. The producer of the show apparently once did a “gay porno” thing.

So we can safely conclude that they treated at least one gay with enough respect to work together with him for many months (years?) on this show.

What this takimag article also misses is also that the “martyr” description is not just part of a nefarious A&E plan, unless they gambled on successfully getting Jesus actually expunged from the show. Or, put it this way, dilute the Christian witness by getting the “patriarch” out and the rest of them eating humble pie.

This has been happening all over Hollywood for a generation or two already and has been creeping into the rest of society as well.

A&E got exposed naked in the snow with this trick, for sure. (Who owns A&E, by the way?) Be it a PR trick, or a trick to throw Phil Robertson “under the bus”, they shot themselves in the foot.

But this is part of the “ethnic cleansing” that certain Christ-haters are doing throughout the country. The haters hate Christ and cannot stand that word “sin” next to actual “sins”, even though Christians can insist “I’m a sinner like anybody else just like you”.

Revelations 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Support the girl WITHOUT the Dragon Tattoo

November 10, 2013

Homeschool family separated for years fights back:
http://www.wnd.com/2013/11/homeschool-family-separated-for-years-fights-back/

In the novel and movie, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the hero of the story is a troubled girl who was the victim of a spy and security apparatus operating within the Swedish government, and victim of abuse by her state-appointed supervisors. But she is a prodigy in matters of hacking, which works in the story to do justice.

Oh, and by the way, the book trilogy author inserts the question in strategically rare spots about why that particular tattoo. In the books, it turns out that the girl was briefly a member in an all-girls’ grunge band with a name suggestive of Satanism. (Sorry, I don’t remember the name and search engines are not helpful). Thus, again, we see another case where the author is probably hiding his sympathies behind hints that let the reader “draw his own conclusion”.

But then the author was pretty clear in his choice of villainy. He hits a target everybody in the world always uses as an example of evil, Hitler and his Nazis, and combines it with a target he apparently hates, of course using some verses in the Bible. But note, people, that no Christian does those practices anymore and almost all varieties of Christian doctrines even condemn them today, and almost all Biblical interpretations say are superseded by the Law of Love we get from Jesus Christ.

Never mind also that now with the reach of the Internet Reformation, we all know that Hitler –and his Nazis– hated Christianity as much as he hated the Jews. Even almost as much as the voices that claim the state was supposed to separate religion from having any say representation in government.

In the books, her story finally got publicity out and the truth is told and the defamed and disgraced journalist is vindicated.

Contrast that with the very public way in which the Swedish government has persecuted a family for homeschooling their son, and persecuting them in a way that the Nazis would have cheered whole-heartedly. As a matter of fact, Germany is now using a law that they say bans home schooling, passed into law by the Nazi dictatorship, where as we speak the German regime is attempting to do the same things to other families there in Germany.

The figuratively jack-booted Swedish authorities marched Nazi-style, in fact, onto a flight that was ready to take off, and yanked off the son and marched him off into government centers. No doubt he is as we speak under the thumb of official indoctrination specialists to do an Orwellian on him, so they can use him later to denounce the very people that tried to protect him from turning into a state “zombified” robot.

It’s not “Father Knows Best” anymore, it is Big Boss knows best, Great Leader knows best, in the dominant culture. God help us.

Thank God that eventually when their cup of evil is full, He Himself will put an end to these evils that men to do men.

(Starting with the identity thieves and hypocrites that use his name in vain every Sunday or Saturday or Friday in churches, synagogues, mosques, and temples.)

Ezekiel 8 :12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, the Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth.

13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.

14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

16 And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord’s house, a nd, behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.

Earth-worship madness

October 13, 2013
Cover of "State of Fear"

Cover of State of Fear

Quoting from a recent Natural Awakenings News Brief “brief”, “To make polysilicon, the basic building block of most solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, silica rock must be melted at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, using electricity from mostly coal-fired power plants“. Now this was news to me, though part of my reading includes what’s available from the reality-based side of this political issue.

Because it is a political issue, not a “science” one. It’s political because it has been political powers that have pushed this “meme” into (some) academic journals, into popular-consumption magazines, and into legislation, and not least of all, into United Nation dictates around the world.

That above news probably would not have made it into this magazine if not for an announcement from Stanford University researchers, mentioned in the same brief, that they believe that they may be able to get more “clean energy” from the panels that the “energy going into the industry’s continued growth”, as they put it, using the energy from “coal-fired power plants”.

That means that just like with ethanol fuels, it takes more energy input into the process that produces the fuel than there is energy output from it. Do the tree-huggers understand what this means? It means that with present technology, every time anybody uses a solar panel, they are making the situation actually much worse using solar panels than they would do by just using the coal-fired energy straight! Hello?

I’ll say it again for better clarity.

Under your own rules, under your own pseudo-science, using “clean green” solar panels to power your home, your office, your plant, is burning more coal than the home, office, or plant was using before you put them in. But the “green label” industry still gives you high marks for it.

This says that there is no wonder the coal industry, the traditional energy producers, like “clean energy” initiatives. Yep, they’re all “green” industries now.

 

CURRICULA

The same edition brags about how one power elite front (they don’t call it that, of course) is pushing climate change propaganda into our children’s brains. They call themselves “Next Generation Science Standards”, that their news brief says “have been adopted by 26 states and are under consideration by 15 more, teach how and why fossil fuel emissions are a causal factor in overheating the world.”

Remember the propaganda that George Orwell painted within a dystopian socialist/fascist future, the propaganda that said “truth is lies”, “war is peace”, all those oxymorons that people were supposed to believe, proclaim, acclaim, simply because they were told to (or else)? This is what we’ve come to.

The late Michael Crichton, in his novel “A State of Fear“, and in an appendix, showed the charts that showed how the man-caused global warming memes were based on easily debunked falsehoods. Climate scientists had already tried to alert the public. But not too loudly, because careers hang in the balance, and if you dissent from the official government-issued dogma, the thought police will work to make you an un-person, just as the tyrants did in the Orwellian world.

 

REMEMBER THE SUN

Remember, the sun overwhelms anything we could do here on the earth. Every day, the temperature makes a drastic up and down swing, most notably in the higher latitudes. Sunspots affect everything here, warm things up, cool them down when they dissipate. World temperatures for the last decade-plus have put the kibosh on all those climate models that we can now all see were totally wrong. Of course many climate scientists had already disproved them, and showed the flaws in the props used to force economy-killing policies upon us.

Here’s a good source for getting the real-world science on the subject: http://wattsupwiththat.com/

 

 

EXPOSED

You would think that the “green movement” would cry bloody murder when Mikhail Gorbachev founded Green Cross in 1993, since he was one of the executive circle in the old Soviet Union that ruled over the biggest polluter on the planet, killer of big fresh water lakes! But it shows that at the very cusp, the apex of the environmentalist front groups is a group from the ruling elites that absolutely knows it’s a farce, and they’re using this propaganda prop as another vehicle to prepare the people for a global dictatorship.

They’ll convince people that it’s the “democratic” thing to do. Not that elections will change anything for real, but they will tell the subjects that it’s just better for them, better for the common man, better to stop the “excesses” of capitalism. What they won’t tell them is that their list of “excesses” were cause by their own government measures interfering with the free market’s ability to provide the solutions they say they want but don’t really want.

Because their end game is thought control, crowd control, a world dictatorship.

What’s Wrong With Franklin Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms”

September 29, 2013

Freedom and liberty are over-used words in 2013 English. But what matters in the concepts they cover, what is worth applying in the real world of interaction between humans, is contained in the non-aggression principle.

I like that phrase for that reason. And that’s the one I’m sticking to.

You might call it the idea that “freedom from aggression” is the freedom worth striving toward. But there are two people involved in the non-spiritual aspects of freedom. Freedom for one person requires respect for that freedom from others.

Self-defense is the enforcement mechanism for it, the best, in fact. As a matter of even more fact, any other mechanism for enforcing respect for the other person’s freedoms is a violation of freedom. (Contracting with security professionals counts as self-protection. Having the proper equipment for self-defense also counts).

The words “freedom” and “liberty” are so abused and twisted by Orwellian state propaganda shills that I prefer the N.A.P. Use that as the best non-ambiguous definition of freedom I can work with.

Roosevelt spoke about his “four freedoms”: freedoms of speech and worship, and “freedom from want” and “freedom from fear“. It is a crime against intelligence and dumbing-down historical episode that the last two self-contradictory items in the list were not hooted down as invitations to tyranny. They are not natural rights at all.

The only “freedom from fear” you’re going to get is a Huxley one, chemically induced or psychotic. If he meant freedom from aggression that would be a right, but not at the cost of fiefdom, even if the figurative lords of the manor change every so often.

The “freedom from want” is the worst one. It is a the demand for a license to steal, to feed someone or to solve their “lack” by plundering the neighbors’ cattle, property, harvests, animals, and even wives. (After all, why should an ugly cripple “want” for sex?)

Anarcho-capitalism vs. Government

August 11, 2013
English: This image is of economist Walter Blo...

English: This image is of economist Walter Block teaching economics in a Loyola University New Orleans classroom. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Let me help with understanding what I’m going to say here. First off, I had once gone from Marxist/Communist to syndicalist-anarchist (something like the “anarcho-communist” idea) precisely because I couldn’t trust people to govern themselves. My reasoning back then articulated like this: if you can’t trust people to govern themselves, you can’t trust them to govern other people. About that time I became a missionary, more concerned for the poor than ever, and all people that needed the truth.

So let’s see:

Q (Question or Comment): With no government than anyone (or group) who has more than others can buy more armed security to enforce their will on those who have less resources. There is nothing to stop bad guys from forming coalitions to gang up on smaller communities and take them over by force since there is no governmental power to stop them.

A: The Second Amendment debate should bring to clarity the principle that self-defense is much more effective than giving up your freedom –even some of it– in exchange for security. Give ‘em an inch, they take a mile. Like Ron Paul said, the only legitimate purpose of any government is to protect its jurisdiction from violation of individual rights.

The problem is that you are trusting a band of strangers with protecting you from other bands of strangers. If it’s a “government”, however, you get protection the same way you get protection from a “Mafia”. If you pay, you get some protection –often not very good because who else can you call, so it is with monopolies– and you get to keep both your legs. Unless one of the rulers needs one.

Q If one does not want to use the term “mercenary” they can invent whatever euphemism they wish and call it a third party mechanism…

A-Euphemisms like “government”, except that’s involuntarily imposed force. And just like with the Army “volunteers”, many “mercenaries” are driven by other than monetary considerations. In self-defense, many of the “volunteers” will be just like the revolutionary militia, and today’s independent militias, people defending their lives, their families, their own children, like the independent militias that Mexicans are now forming to defend themselves against the gangs. Like some citizens of Detroit who have armed themselves for protection, because the police force are now useless. Precisely because under the “democratic-republican” Detroit government not everybody played fair. Especially the elected legislators and executives, and now even the judges are ordering the city to stiff the creditors that trusted them and pay the taxation without representation that previous city officials and unions colluded to burden them with. 

Q The fact is they fight for money and not principle and can be paid off by your enemies.

A [Ed-Like moles, or governments of corrupt sellouts like in Congress. The fact is, all of us have wrong reasons we do many right things. This
thought also ignores the fact that giving you good service for
your money is a principle worth more than money. Protecting
people is a good career. It is the first early motivation of
may policemen, in fact, who make a career of it, paid for
their services. Yet the very police is who we are talking
about. If they were more directly beholden to the people they
ahem, “serve”, we would have much less abuse and corruption in
their number.

A In a democratic republic you are free to hire your own self
defense so there is no denial of freedom.

A [Ed-Unless you have to defend
yourself against that government. Try buying raw milk in a
co-op and get arrested in the “Republic” of California.

Q One is free to dream that they can provide their own security on
either a personal or community basis against any threat but they
are assuming everyone else will play fair and continue to ignore
the myriad of scenarios that can develop in a world without
government.

A-No assumptions at all except that all central planning scenarios come with all those flaws built in.

Who really believes they can defend against a foreign invasion
with an army of locally hired of rent a cops thrown together by
few communities who decide they will participate?

A- The farmboy revolutionaries that defended the USA against British attacks are an excellent example. A rag-tag band of “backward” mountain men are
defeating the most powerful Army in the whole world as we speak. Bill Maher said once that the Second Amendment is moot because the government has tanks. Tell that to the Taliban. The militias in Iraq say Phooey too.

Otherwise, why would our own “democratic republic” government
of the USA have such a fanatical fixation on disarming the
entire civilian population?

Government can become oppressive. True. People with no government can also form groups and become oppressive. Also true. The fact that anyone can be corrupted is hardly a case for ” no more rules”. It seems better time would be spent working on small government within a republican ( small “r”) model following constitutional principles.

A – Who said “No more rules”. That’s a straw man argument. The rule that counts more than any other should be the “non-aggression principle“. See:http://wiki.mises.org/wiki/Principle_of_non-aggression

Walter Block explains it well:

Someone who does not believe in government of any kind has no reason to quote the Bill of Rights since without a government to enforce it, it is just a piece of paper.

A – I quote the Bill of Rights because they actually support the position, because if you read them properly, they are not grants of privilege by government, but they are declarations of what are universally held rights in the sense articulated in the Declaration of Independence as “unalienable”. It was a compromise demanded by patriots that did not want a strong federal government.But as we can see from events and history in the real world, if you disqualify my arguments on that basis, yours are disqualified by the proof in the real world that your very government is ruled by that Constitution as “the Supreme Law of the Land“, but that very same government has broken almost every one and in the most massive scale possible:

The First: “Free-speech zones

Second: Gun control laws. Supreme Court legalized “reasonable” infringement legislation. In New Orleans the police went door-to-door confiscating arms without warrants or due process at all. The first gun control laws in the U.S. were Jim Crow-motivated laws meant to prevent even free blacks from owning them.

Third: To my knowledge, the military has not commandeered quarters in any house, even as “prescribed by law”.

Fourth: Recent revelations by Edward Snowden and the brave reporters of The Guardian have exposed the blatant and still now unrepentant violation of the right of the people “to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects” in the unconstitutional seizure of the “effects” of EVERY ONE of the regime’s subjects in the United States. Having been exposed, they say “So what? It’s to keep you safe from bad guys”. The Fourth also says must have a warrant –from a genuine independent court, not a kangaroo court, and not a self-written– naming the person and things to be seized. And there’s nothing about allowing the right to a censorship on the target of such a warrant, as we now face with the Patriot Act. A librarian was charged with a felony for just showing one of these warrants to an assistant.

Fifth: They had this guy in Boston how many hours? As soon as he knew his rights he shut up. But the same Justice Department that was so worried the FBI might find out something from this violation of rights is the one that violates every American’s “Fourth Amendment” right all day every day.

Sixth: Speedy trail, confrontation of witnesses: Not just the rubber-stamp FISA courts (NSA director: You can’t lie to us anymore, we all know they’re kangaroo, else they would not approve the unconstitutional requests for blanket coverage, seizure of all those records). There is the case of the U Florida professor arrested (and convicted? deported?) based on what the government called secret evidence that they could not even show the judge in the case.

Seventh: The president, we now know, issues regular kill orders against anybody he wants to. Rand Paul forced the Attorney General to admit the government has no legal authority at least to kill Americans on American soil if there is no imminent danger, but the history of lies and conviction for Contempt of Congress shows we cannot trust their word. Not to mention executing acts of war (like drone attacks overseas) without the constitutionally required declaration of war by Congress.

Eighth (Cruel and Unusual Punishment): Now the president who as candidate opposed the interrogation techniques used at Guantanamo, now defends them as necessary. Nothing like a political campaign to bring out the liar in the worst characters. (Not to mention that the nests of rape, murder, assaults on prisoners convicted for non-violent offenses themselves, in my opinion, themselves constitute cruel and unusual punishment.)

Ninth: Ha, the Congress over the last twenty years, with the happy cooperation of the worst of the bankers, has violated every other natural right that got in their corrupt way, including that of property, with the Fed, the New Deal, The Great Society, the right to free trade and free exchange of goods and services.

Tenth: Of course the Congress has used the carrot-stick approach and a blatantly unconstitutional perversion of the interstate commerce clause to entice and coerce the states to doing things that were not in the jurisdiction of the federal Congress to influence. Holder tried a pathetic attempt to stop the flood of states declaring it illegal for anyone to cooperate with federal officials in violations of the Second Amendment. Holder used the “supreme law of the land” argument, by which he meant that the federal government has a “right” under the “supreme law” clause to become a dictatorship whenever it feels like it.

So yes, in the real world, I believe using the Constitution is a good way to educate the people, and by golly, if we can agree to push at least for respect and obedience to the US Constitution, that would be better than the present condition by astronomical scales.

Blood on the hands of Obama’s phony propaganda

The title line of this note uses a good turn of phrase by Walid Shoebat in the article linked below:

Alinsky smiling up at Obama over “Phony Scandals” line | Walid ShoebatWalid Shoebat:
http://shoebat.com/2013/07/29/alinsky-smiling-up-at-obama-over-phony-scandals-line/

He refers to Obama’s phony “phony scandals” remark, where he said all of the scandals of his administration’s doing are “phony scandals”.

He means:
1.The long list of lies and dirty tricks used for the Unaffordable Act and its PHONY purpose 2.Fast and Furious and its PHONY cover story
2a.The PROMOTION of the managers of the Fast and Furious operation instead of demotion 3.Eric Holder in contempt of court for Fast and Furious stonewalling 4.Obama covering Holder with PHONY “executive privilege” cover 5.Benghazi-gate
6.Benghazi-gate whistleblower suppression
7.The IRS targeting tea party, patriot, and other conservative and libertarian tax status applications for denial by endless questionnaires 8.IRS investigation stalling and stonewalling
9.Suspension WITH PAY for the most visible IRS official in charge of deep-sixing conservative applications
10.The coverup by secret classifications of murders of civilians in Iraq including reporters, part of the files we have seen thanks to whistleblower Bradley Manning
11.The universal Orwellian Big Brother surveillance state, the gathering of data on EVERYBODY in the country, in gross and blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment, expanded by the Patriot Act and expanded by the Obama administration
12.The demotion, harassment, and the prosecution of whistleblowers and the journalists that publish their data, to scare other potential whistleblowers
13.Janet Napolitano’s DHS enemies watch list for federal, state and local law enforcement, listing veterans, conservatives, libertarians like Ron Paul supporters, grouped along with other bad guys as dangerous (We saw in the 2012 presidential campaign who were the more dangerous ones with the blatant illegal, fraudulent and abusive treatment of Ron Paul delegates)
14.The blatant abuse of authority by the president to order a stop to drilling permits in the Gulf, and then the blatant disobedience by the Obama administration to more than one order by a federal judge to open up the drilling permits
15.The use of the DOJ to provoke racial animosity in a highly publicized case, and the blatant disregard for many racists attacks across the country against lighter skinned Americans whose only sin is the color of their skin

And now we have a new scandal uncovered by Walid Shoebat, the attempt by the Obama administration to provoke some big attack by someone of the groups they hate and they want to suppress, to provide a cover for the much bigger attack on what’s left of respect for individual rights in America, and to finish crippling the American economy with a fascist/socialist central-planning regime.

They are also distractions from the way this dictatorship is getting built. The Federal Reserve is the focal point of both economic disruption and money creation, with funds going first to the best connected and the most favored, and that’s not the poor. The poor are pacified with “safety net” promises and demagoguery. They remind me of the cartoon I saw once of the rich man with the beggar, where the rich man is telling the beggar, “I’m sorry I can’t find anything to give you”, with the rich man’s hand searching around inside the beggar’s jacket. Except in this case, the rich man fascist is buying the poor man’s votes, and by the way, the rich man’s votes too, with government subsidies and “tax breaks”. Tax breaks are where they let you keep some of the money they’re stealing.
