Okay, now the truth is out. They were beating the drums of war in our faces, in spite of the entire world being against it, and now, a Syrian-American woman who is also a Christian, has put it back in the face of the war mongers, with John McCain as their stand-in.

American interventions in the Middle East, like the lady said, has been disastrous most of all for the Christians in the region. Why is it that Christians get the worst of all the American interventions. Even Hiroshima and Nagasaki had the highest concentration of Christians in Japan at the time…

Some of the oldest continuous Christian populations in Iraq and Syria are now being ethnically cleansed.. And by the way, Muslims are being slaughtered too, not just Alawites…

Ted Cruz is right — Refuse to fund Obamacare! Nobody likes it!

August 24, 2013

My response to the blast at Ted Cruz‘s strategy for stopping Obamacare:
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/why-ted-cruz-cant-win-a-government-shutdown/

“Obamacare will fail” refers to the fact that as marketed, even written, it will fail, and to fix it, the oligarchs will demand more steps toward overt nationalization, like Obama promised back before he was a candidate, when he said they would have to do it by steps

Ted Cruz is the only way to stop runaway government. The sequester agreement may yet still be known to savvy historians as the one chance the Republican Party blew to stop the tyrannical government before it got its legs.

If not now, when? If not here, then where?

People are SICK TO DEATH of so-called conservative “strategists” who keep demanding compromise for the sake of winning later, hoping we will forget that TODAY IS YESTERDAY’S “LATER”, and they were ALWAYS WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, and wrong again!

To hell with the media scare tactics! Have these clueless “conservatives” learned nothing from the sequester scare? It came and went and the Slasher-in-Chief exposed himself as willing to cut first where it affects Americans in the street.

But the Republican Party bosses have already engineered its catastrophe. Throwaway candidate Bob Dole, for the election they obviously wanted to lose for some reason, because they’re so scared of the media I guess, instead of being scared of losing sight of principle. Then the George W Bush, who outspent Democrat Party hacks. Then they engineered the loss in 2008 with the candidate most likely to lose, John McCain. Some of their supporters began to wake up. Obama scared more of them awake, but then four freshman Republicans in Congress, elected on the tea party wave, turned tail or traitor and failed to stop runaway debt.

Since when is the government-media complex ever going to demand shrinkage of government?

 

Socialism Cannot Save Anything

June 30, 2013

Somebody wrote a piece at The Sleuth Journal, a web site magazine that usually runs interesting and informative pieces about oppressive practices of government:

Socialism Can Save Our Cities & Small Businesses | TheSleuthJournal
http://www.thesleuthjournal.com/socialism-can-save-our-cities-small-businesses/#comment-1077

Socialism cannot save our cities and small businesses, since socialism/fascism caused the problems in the first place!

There’s already too much concentration of economic power in government and quasi-government hands, in lockstep with the very biggest bankers and corporate heads.

* Community owned mortgage banks, and credit unions, are helpless and hopeless against the power of the Federal Reserve Bank. By the way, the Fed is one of a couple hundred central banks around the world, and establishing such central banks was part of the COMMUNIST platform. Why did Karl Marx want to help the most devious of the bankers?

* County or City Owned Power Companies — Oh yeah, that’ll help, There are already a bunch of them, known for cronyism and corruption, because now the political bosses are in charge. They’re not magically made more pure just because they get to boss the lighting utiility, but now they don’t have to worry about saving the owners money, because they’re government!

* The Millionaires Tax — Oh yeah, that’ll help jobs. The guy doesn’t even try to pretend taxing 50% over a million has anything to do with helping the poor, except the proposal for a referendum. Never mind the ethics involved in all socialist and fascist proposals, of stealing money from somebody. Like the bloody Bonnie and Clyde, they “go where the money is”, except it’s less noble than Bonnie and Clyde because at least the robbers want it for themselves, whereas socialists just want to pull them down here to poverty with the rest of us!

How about let them use that money to give a raise to their workers, hire more workers, invest in more productive activity? So what if they sit on it? If it’s in savings, it’s getting loaned out to others doing much more productive activity than for warfare or for agents to spy on us.

* 25% solution — Finally, a good idea, cut down military spending. Better yet, Obama or the president could just order them home immediately, like Ron Paul said he would.

* Public funding of all elections — The worst idea yet. Let government determine who gets a chance at forming part of the government. The most radical election year was 1968 when McCarthy got five millionaire backers to challenge the warfare machine. Those donations would be against the law today, because we already have too much campaign finance reform.

Imagine that. A socialist proposing that legislators like John McCain make the rules for who gets money to campaign against them. Real smart.

* Medicare and dental care for all — except for the ones denied by the one gatekeeper with no recourse and no competition. Better to get government spending out of it altogether and nix the corporate deductions for it –they still today don’t let individuals get the deduction– so the prices will drop to affordable. Instead we got hikes in premiums with the Unaffordable Act, companies are dropping coverage, and dictates all around and the people get less choice than ever. Doctors dropping out too, the best ones that have enough are retiring.. Now functionally illiterate “graduates” of government schools who can’t read cursive are going to take care of us. Thanks a lot, socialism.

* Nationalized weapons industries. — Oh great. Make them as efficient as the post office. By cutting corporations out of the loop for the dictator, it’ll get better? The “profit” in war will be the political cronies. That’ll work as good as it did for education, and that’s going gangbusters, right?

==> I’m not a “talking head” or politician or Old Media. I’m a Ron Paul fan, anathema to Shadow Government. We cannot be accused of shilling for the richest. But socialism is a downhill slippery path to tyranny. There are over 100 million humans sacrificed in the 20th century to the god of government.

But. Socialist talking heads are indeed shills for the richest and most powerful clique of plutocrats on the planet. George Soros is no starving peasant, and he and his peers at the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, and a lot more, they fund armies of writers and journalists to write articles that praise socialism on 100s of web sites all over the Internet.

I found that out when I battled the lies in 2009 when Honduras asserted its freedom and sovereignty against the socialist-orchestrated attack on it, when the Obama administration joined Chavez in trying to force that country to put the dictator Zelaya back in, who was running his own auto-coup against his own government and against his republic, using fraud for cover. And 80% of Hondurans backed Micheletti against that Chavez-puppet demagogue.

I Warned You Years Ago: Gang of 8 Hiding National ID Card in Immigration Reform

I’m very sorry to see my prediction from certainty come to pass:

Gang of 8 Hiding National ID Card in Immigration Reform
http://ivn.us/common-sense/2013/05/09/ron-paul-gang-of-8-hiding-national-id-card-in-immigration-reform/

I had said they were squeezing the immigration “debate” for all it’s worth to stage a comeback for the national ID card. They tried it at the beginning of the Clinton administration as part of Hillary Clinton’s first medical industry nationalization attempt. “Rightists” and Republicans were instrumental in stopping that one.

But like they say, complaints about illegal immigration have degenerated into demands of e-Verify. But under the covers, having a national system for checking whether somebody has permission to work or now will have to cover citizens and has to include such an ID.

If they had wanted to stop employers hiring illegal aliens, they could have done it in one week in this country. It’s not hard. The FBI has no problem at all finding all kinds of people who are willing to listen to FBI plots to blow things away, that they then arrest for nodding their heads yes…

Your papers, please:

While his son, Senator Rand Paul, has taken most of the national spotlight away from his father, Ron Paul has not stopped advancing his “Campaign for Liberty.” Ron Paul and his supporters have built up a massive database of “liberty loving” supporters since the organization launched in 2008, following his second unsuccessful campaign for the Presidency. And today, he is robo-calling his supporters to sign a petition against the inclusion of a National ID card in immigration reform negotiations. From the petition:

Right now, freedom-stealing Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), banding together with other statists from both parties, are scheming to sneak a massive power grab into a new “immigration reform” bill.

If passed, it would require every American to obtain a National ID card to work legally in the U.S. – and you can bet it will be only a matter of time until they’re required even for simple purchases.

http://ivn.us/common-sense/2013/05/09/ron-paul-gang-of-8-hiding-national-id-card-in-immigration-reform/

Ron Paul calls the current proposals “by far the worst national ID card the statists have come up with yet.” And he blames the “Gang of 8,” which includes Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and Chuck Schumer, for working with Obama to “sneak a national ID” into an immigration reform bill. ”A statist’s dream,” Paul decries.

According to Paul, the national ID would create a new federal database with biometric information on all citizens and those who work within the United States. He claims that, in short time, it would be illegal for anyone to have a job without an ID card. “Every time any citizen applies for a job, the government will know…[and] once the government bureaucrats know exactly how we run our lives, they will try and control them.”

He warns that “the government will know what you eat, drink, and read. Once they know this information, they will regulate everything” from your food to your education, depriving us of our freedom. Issues like amnesty are just being used as cover. The National ID is what the “statists” really want.

Hah, not even the ACLU wants this one. Maybe they’re afraid Michael Savage will pull off something… Except they don’t care about gun confiscation, since they say that the Second Amendment is the only one of the Bill of Rights that protects the government from the people instead of the people from the government… Bridge in Brooklyn for sale, right…

Weeknotes: Income mobility is fair, Ron Paul liberty movement will outlast Tea Party & Occupy, and Trending

March 9, 2013

The real question about “wealth inequality”, which is the cover-up story of people who want you to vote to steal other people’s money (take it with the implicit threat of force) to do “good” things with it, whether they do or no:
http://libertycrier.com/finance/what-wasnt-said-in-wealth-inequality-in-america/?utm_source=The+Liberty+Crier&utm_campaign=359e249b8a-The_Liberty_Crier_Daily_News_3_9_2013&utm_medium=email

 

Good point guys. What really matters in the topic of what is “fair” with regard to income, is, “income mobility”. In other words, what barriers are there to the poor accumulating more wealth?

 

Certainly we should not have government placing barriers to upward income mobility.

 

*****************

 

The web site http://www.policymic.com about “8 months ago” posted an article by Robert Taylor that predicted the liberty movement spearheaded by Ron Paul would outlast both the “Tea Party” movement and the “Occupy” movement.
http://www.policymic.com/articles/10787/ron-paul-liberty-movement-will-outlast-the-tea-party-and-occupy-wall-street

 

While Occupy seems to have faded away back into the billionaire-funded activist foundations and foundation-funded advocacy actors, the Tea Party movement has seemed to move into a few organizations and personalities that are associated with both conservative and libertarian associations. In fact some commentators’ predictions that the Tea Party and the Ron Paul libertarian movements would eventually coalesce is now reflected in many developments and trends we see in current events.

 

After Ron Paul’s victorious filibuster in the Senate this month, Robert Taylor’s predictions are finding their fulfillment it seems. The two protest movements have faded in the attention span of the public and have lost their presence in the minds of the public. The “Tea Party” label at least seems to have had more traction, since obviously we have a Tea Party Caucus in the Senate (started by Rand Paul) and a Tea Party Caucus (started by Michelle Bachmann) in the House of Representatives, and there are organizations advocating positions and PACS for electing philosophical analogue.

 

Ron Paul’s stand against the White House running away from a clear answer on the rights of even Americans, his fighting for Americans and for the Fourth and Fifth and Sixth Amendments to the Constitution, not to mention “equal treatment under the law”.

 

For six months they have been trying to get the Obama to speak clearly on something for the benefit of 95 percent of Americans who agree with Rand Paul in this situation, asked specifically of Eric Holder that morning, and who kept asking obliquely. The White House had refused to answer it directly, except for at one time a statement from the Attorney General that seemed to imply that the President could order a kill with a drone on any American on American soil without warrant or detention or trial.

 

The next day, the Obama administration was forced to change its position and finally admit clearly that it did NOT have the authority to order kills under the specific circumstances clearly stated in Rand Paul’s questions.

 

It brought the issue of violations of the Constitution into the laser focus of Americans’ attention, in spite of the spin of coverage by the Old Guard Media.

 

A handful of Republican Senators rushed to join Rand Paul’s Stand. I happened to be able to tune it while Ted Cruz had the floor. Mike Lee also came early. But as time went on, support built in social media and on talk radio and on the Internet. Even the Minority Leader Mitch McConnell uttered some support, and the RNC Chairman jumped in (after 10 hours in) urging other senators to join Rand Paul.

 

All of that is huge, because they broke the bland and boring congressional news cycle. Standing up for disenchanted Americans in dramatic fashion was cutting through the self-censorship of the government-media complex like a hot knife through butter and got attention. Even some Democrats publicly supported Sen. Paul, and a few more quietly and privately.

 

But the Old Guard (“old fogeys” they call them in Missouri) Empire struck back the next day, too. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham showed their colors by taking to the floor to rant against Rand Paul and his supporters, calling them “crazy birds”. My quiet response was “Look who’s talking”. The Wall Street Journal editors showed themselves as a supporter of the Establishment ruling cliques by criticizing Paul.

 

Mary O’Grady is a breath of fresh air often at the WSJ, having defended the persecuted small country of Honduras when they defended freedom in 2009 and changed Latin American history.

 

The Investors’ Business Journal is much more reliable in having a sane perspective on matters affecting business.

 

And that Bill of Rights over the long term is something that protects free market activity over the long term. Government intervention for “fairness” or to stop business “abuse” always is better for the biggest corporations, and cultivates “too big to fail” concerns. Although I don’t think there is such a ridiculous thing.

 

*****************

 

An end note:

 

Ann Romney is criticizing the media for not treating her husband fairly. I’ve got two reactions to that.

 

One is, so why the heck did Romney’s team let people moderate their debates that they knew would be unfair?

 

A second thought is, Where were you when Romney’s supporters were abusing Ron Paul supporters, cheating at votes, committing blatant fraud and (I think) illegally making up false numbers in the Maine caucus voting? And how about the abuse at the Republican Convention?

 

Maybe the real story is, if the media –and Romney’s political hacks– had treated Ron Paul fairly, it might just be Ron Paul in the White House.

 

*****************

 

Very interesting developments lately.

 

(1) Obama’s shine has worn off.

 

(2) He has been shown to be a liar, in effect, with his demagoguery about the Sequester.

 

(3) Rand Paul has single-handedly created a platform for other liberty-minded people to virtually force the Obama administration to back off from its claim of power to kill anybody it chooses to anywhere in the world whenever it deems it “appropriate”. “Appropriate” was Eric Holder’s own words to avoid saying “constitutional” in the hearing where Rand Paul had pushed this question.

 

Rand Paul is right to claim the word “victory” for this forced change in the Obama position.

 

(4) Dennis Rodman visited North Korea and came back a Manchurian Candidate without the candidacy and provided a few humorous moments with his comments.

 

A missionary friend of mine is working actively to help North Koreans both inside and outside that national fiefdom:
http://www.helpinghandskorea.org/

 

When you help that mission, Helping Hands Korea, it’s a good cause. Visit the we site and find how to donate something.

 

*****************

 

Summarizing recent events:

 

Obama’s sequester demagoguery is exposed and getting blowback for punishing the public instead of cutting waste.

 

Sequester is also exposed as a miserably tiny INCREASE from the year before, so why is it called such a “cut”?

 

And now minimum wage and other hourly workers across the country are seeing their jobs shrink because of Obamacare, as a direct result, and it did not help them get health care insurance either. They didn’t realize the paperwork this was going to require of them either.

 

Lots of states are refusing to set up exchanges, a lot of them are passing laws against any state employee implementing anything related to the medical industry nationalization.

 

Obama is forced by Rand Paul’s stand against the White House’s unconstitutional abusive evasion about policy kill orders with the focus on the drones. Rushing to his side were other liberty-minded senators, and then Internet shout-outs of support from Republican colleagues, and then even Democrat Party politicians expressing support, and even the ACLU, FRC, Code Pink, and all kinds of people of all stripes adding to the din.

 

Rand Paul won back about 95% of his “bonafides” with libertarian voices.

 

Even John Cusak was wondering where all the “progressives” had gone off in hiding to…

 

The White House was backed into a corner at least on this constitutional issue.

McCain and Graham and the rest are the “old guard” and irrelevant: Youth want liberty

March 8, 2013

There is Senator McCain and Lindsey Graham are babbling in the Senate as we speak, getting broadcast on CSPAN.

They seem to find the concern about Americans on American soil laughable to them.

Nobody disagrees about what to do with an imminent threat. They seem to think it’s just fine to have top secret councils where Obama decides to kill an American on American soil without a warrant signed off by a court and a jury trial if he should so want it. That the president can order a kill without the constitutionally required warrant and trial by jury.

There is NOTHING in the Constitution that permits such arbitrary and secret kill lists.

Lindsey Graham even burned the dictionary by saying you can be an “imminent threat” just by belonging to an organization. He is also saying it’s never going to happen in the United States.

HOW IN THE WORLD DOES HE KNOW ANYWAY? Besides which it’s a violation of the Constitution. Trusting ANY president with that kind of entitlement is a slippery slope.

What a bunch of gullible politicians!

We’re talking about an administration that says it’s unconstitutional to torture anybody anywhere, but it’s okay to kill them where they stand.

God help us all.

Romney, Gingrich, Santorum are all Establishment: Supported TARP and Individual Mandate, ALL of them

January 29, 2012

Newt, Romney, Santorum all supported the TARP rip-off that robbed the American people to give to the rich white-collar criminals that ripped off families and old ladies with mortgage scams and empty “derivatives”, playing musical chairs with them till the bottom fell out like Ron Paul told everybody it would. So of course instead of letting the bad guys pay, Bush, Obama, McCain, with Romney, Santorum and Gingrich all said, “Let the American Middle Class pay!” and they took our money, ignored the Tea Party roar and the shouts from other Americans and did it anyway. In broad daylight!

How quick Americans forget! There is only one who has been the consistent constitutional conservative, and sure, the Big Money Media calls that “crazy” today eh? We all know who the consistently honest one is, who does better in all the polls against Obama, and who both the Big Media and the Establishment is against.

Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

Don’t believe this fraudulent myth. They’re setting up Romney as the CEO business guy, Gingrich as the anti-Establishment guy, and Santorum as their “Christian conservative” guy, but they are like the different brands in the store of the same product that are made in the same factory. None of them are talking about the biggest rip-off of all time, the Federal Reserve and baseless currency. That would be Ron Paul.
