We Wuz Robbed!

Robbing is our bidness; we’re The Kleptocracy!(link)

When this Iowa newspaper was published, William McKinley had been promoted from governor of Ohio to president of the United States, and the communist ideology that had founded the Republican Party had shifted over to the Democrats. William Jennings Bryan’s Cross of Gold speech was mesmerizing the masses and cleaving the Democratic Party in twain – a development big-city machine Republicans greeted with whoops of joy.

Burning crosses and looter rhetoric

Sixteen years earlier the Democratic Party platform had decried the encroachment of despotism by vote fraud. After reaffirming its opposition to laws outlawing the consumption of alcohol and drugs, the party went on to demand a free ballot and decry the surrounding of ballot boxes by troops and deputy marshals to intimidate and obstruct the election, and the false count of electoral votes which in 1876-77 had installed the candidate defeated at the polls as President.(link)

Communism regurgitates and re-swallows

Hillary Clinton ran on a platform calling for police to shoot and rob Blacks, Latinos and hepcats in general over plant leaves (just like the Republicans). She also wanted to continue sending men with guns, tanks, napalm, landmines and flamethrowers out to murder women kids houses and villages, just like Lyndon Johnson and every Republican since Johnson. Naturally she was horrified, and shrieked “fraud” after losing that election. Her sycophants ran ads begging the electoral college not to install as president the candidate who had lost at the Great Unwashed polls.(link)

The reason Donald Trump lost at the polls was that the Libertarian party ran a credible candidate on a reasonable platform. Gary Johnson was not a bomb-throwing communist anarchist cross-dressing as a libertarian, and the LP platform did not invite suicide bombers and dangerous criminals to enter These States uninspected. As a result the Libertarian party was entrusted with 4 million votes cast by honest Americans. Both halves of the Kleptocracy recoiled in horror at this development, yet dissimilated by pointing the finger at imaginary Russian hackers or Jim Crow election laws.

Sleazy looter wokeness and cruel fanaticism are STILL The Kleptocracy!

The “Fusion” Republicans feared in 1887 was not the least bit nuclear. It was the combination of a Klan-ridden, communist-infiltrated Democratic Party resorting in its desperation to an alliance with a People’s party whose main platform plank was copied from paragraph two of the Communist manifesto. Today’s Democrats have reverted to a similar coalition re-tasking racial collectivism in a different direction. Republicans in the meantime have taken to copying the formulas successfully employed by Theodore Roosevelt and Adolph Hitler, combining racial collectivism with “ethical” eugenics and religious brainwashing. Out of that we got the Panic of 1907, the Crash and Great Depression, and World War 2.

Women voters got rid of Bert Hoover, the Klan, Prohibition and The Depression

Enough women voters were attracted to the Libertarian party platform in 1972 to encourage the Supreme Court to copy our plank and rename it Roe v Wade. By infiltration and sabotage, The Kleptocracy has managed to jimmy that plank out of the platform and turn the Libertarian party into a sleazy boys club dominated by communist infiltrators. As a result, the National Socialist half of The Kleptocracy has taken over the State of Texas so that women are now hunted like fugitive slaves in a Harriet Beecher Stowe novel. This could be the wake-up call the Texas Libertarian Party needed to summon the courage to reinstate individual rights for women in the platform, and thereby attract rather than alienate one half of the population. Here is the original Libertarian plank:

We support an end to all subsidies for childbearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children. We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days. We shall oppose all coercive measures to control population growth.

Libertarian Party Platforms, 1972, 1976.
Communist anarchist and mystical Republican delegates have had their say. Their Ignoble Experiment is a monument to failure.

The Libertarian Party’s 2020 nomination of a female Quisling pressing for bloody coat-hanger abortions and an ignorant tool advocating no-borders anarchism cost the Libertarian party ballot access to half the States in the Union and more than half the votes we earned in the 2016 election against the same Republican oaf and a senile prohibitionist Democrat. There is a lesson there that ought not to be forgotten.

SOTOMAYOR, J., dissenting

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

No. 21A24

WHOLE WOMAN’S HEALTH ET AL. v. AUSTIN REEVE JACKSON, JUDGE, ET AL.

ON APPLICATION FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

[September 1, 2021]

JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR, with whom JUSTICE BREYER and JUSTICE KAGAN join, dissenting.

The Court’s order is stunning. Presented with an application to enjoin a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of Justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand. Last night, the Court silently acquiesced in a State’s enactment of a law that flouts nearly 50 years of federal precedents. Today, the Court belatedly explains that it declined to grant relief because of procedural complexities of the State’s own invention. Ante, at 1. Because the Court’s failure to act rewards tactics designed to avoid judicial review and inflicts significant harm on the applicants and on women seeking abortions in Texas, I dissent.

In May 2021, the Texas Legislature enacted S. B. 8 (the Act). The Act, which took effect statewide at midnight on September 1, makes it unlawful for physicians to perform abortions if they either detect cardiac activity in an embryo or fail to perform a test to detect such activity. §3 (to be codified at Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. §§171.201(1), 171.204(a) (West 2021)). This equates to a near-categorical ban on abortions beginning six weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period, before many women realize they are pregnant, and months before fetal viability. According to the applicants, who are abortion providers and advocates in Texas, the Act immediately prohibits care for at least 85% of Texas abortion patients and will force many abortion clinics to close.

The Act is clearly unconstitutional under existing precedents. See, e.g., June Medical Servs. L. L. C. v. Russo, 591 U. S. ___, ___ (2020) (ROBERTS, C. J., concurring in judgment) (slip op., at 5) (explaining that “the State may not impose an undue burden on the woman’s ability to obtain an abortion” of a “nonviable fetus” (citing Roe v. Wade, 410 U. S. 113 (1973), and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, 505 U. S. 833 (1992); internal quotation marks omitted)). The respondents do not even try to argue otherwise. Nor could they: No federal appellate court has upheld such a comprehensive prohibition on abortions before viability under current law.

The Texas Legislature was well aware of this binding precedent. To circumvent it, the Legislature took the extraordinary step of enlisting private citizens to do what the State could not. The Act authorizes any private citizen to file a lawsuit against any person who provides an abortion in violation of the Act, “aids or abets” such an abortion (including by paying for it) regardless of whether they know the abortion is prohibited under the Act, or even intends to engage in such conduct. §3 (to be codified at Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. §171.208). Courts are required to enjoin the defendant from engaging in these actions in the future and to award the private-citizen plaintiff at least $10,000 in “statutory damages” for each forbidden abortion performed or aided by the defendant. Ibid. In effect, the Texas Legislature has deputized the State’s citizens as bounty hunters, offering them cash prizes for civilly prosecuting their neighbors’ medical procedures.

The Legislature fashioned this scheme because federal constitutional challenges to state laws ordinarily are brought against state officers who are in charge of enforcing the law. See, e.g., Virginia Office for Protection and Advocacy v. Stewart, 563 U. S. 247, 254 (2011) (citing Ex parte Young, 209 U. S. 123 (1908)). By prohibiting state officers from enforcing the Act directly and relying instead on citizen bounty hunters, the Legislature sought to make it more complicated for federal courts to enjoin the Act on a statewide basis.

Taken together, the Act is a breathtaking act of defiance—of the Constitution, of this Court’s precedents, and of the rights of women seeking abortions throughout Texas. But over six weeks after the applicants filed suit to prevent the Act from taking effect, a Fifth Circuit panel abruptly stayed all proceedings before the District Court and vacated a preliminary injunction hearing that was scheduled to begin on Monday. The applicants requested emergency relief from this Court, but the Court said nothing. The Act took effect at midnight last night.

Today, the Court finally tells the Nation that it declined to act because, in short, the State’s gambit worked. The structure of the State’s scheme, the Court reasons, raises “complex and novel antecedent procedural questions” that counsel against granting the application, ante, at 1, just as the State intended. This is untenable. It cannot be the case that a State can evade federal judicial scrutiny by outsourcing the enforcement of unconstitutional laws to its citizenry. Moreover, the District Court held this case justiciable in a thorough and well-reasoned opinion after weeks of briefing and consideration. At a minimum, this Court should have stayed implementation of the Act to allow the lower courts to evaluate these issues in the normal course. Instead, the Court has rewarded the State’s effort to delay federal review of a plainly unconstitutional statute, enacted in disregard of the Court’s precedents, through procedural entanglements of the State’s own creation.

The Court should not be so content to ignore its constitutional obligations to protect not only the rights of women, but also the sanctity of its precedents and of the rule of law.

I dissent. * * *

Libertariantranslator: Certiorari was denied largely because the “defendants” are shills overtly offering to test a law contrived to baffle scrutiny while violating individual rights. Such law-testing is common and many bad laws have collapsed under scrutiny of test cases. Yet what we are seeing today is the National Socialist males, the ones mostly packing the court on behalf of Positive Christianity, blocking the freedom of female Associate Justices to speak without interruption.

The looter media struggle to hammer all controversy into a contest between “conservative” (christian national socialist) and “liberal” (something they do not even know existed in 1931). Here are some examples of what the Liberal Party of America published in its 1931 platform under Comstock Law censorship.

On the WCTU voting to publicly shame women: Surely these cruel, meddling women are neither Christian nor temperate; rather are they controlled by a prompting of sadism—the joy that comes from inflicting pain on others.

On Opinions and Social Pressure: Now, after five years, a man can speak on these topics without being burnt at the stake–not because there is more tolerance, but because so many people have adopted his views and are not afraid to say so.

On entrenched Soft Machines: We urged the men and women of our State to throw party loyaoty to the winds and vote on a principle which the older parties consistently ignored.

On coercive redistribution: Men and women who get on the dole system will never get off it. It kills independence and respect and permanently pauperizes the citizens whose immediate needs it means to alleviate.

On “vice” entrapment: Innocent men and women are every day molested, arrested, shot, or killed in their homes, or on the public highways, by the agents who, spending the people’s money in debauchery, register under false names at hotels, purchase liquor from irresponsible persons, and drink it; gamble at night clubs, where they pay decoy money to women; and at nightfall roost on fire escapes, like foul vultures, peering into the windows of hotel bedrooms for a clue that will lead to the arrest of unwary travelers. They establish saloons and gambling dens, where they arrest their patrons with a gleeful boast of successful enforcement. They employ young girls of high-school age to get drunk and pass their nights with men under suspicion, who are to be trapped.

On national Prohibition: With murder in their hearts they put poison in alcohol to kill the people who convert it into beverage, and with the glee of a modern Borgia they have killed thousands in that way. On the high seas they shoot their fleeing prey without giving them a chance, and twenty of them at one time get drunk on confiscated liquor. And all this with the inconceivable connivance of the Government at Washington, with money appropriated by Congress for that purpose. Every week they send one thousand men and women to the penitentiary through a law which has outraged the science of jurisprudence; and under that law virtually every citizen in this land is trailed by hired spies in every step that he takes in the pursuance of his daily work, and put in danger of arrest on the mere suspicion and strong hope of his doing that which men have followed with temperate pleasure from the ancient dawn of time.

On the Supreme Court: We shall ask from them a hearing upon every question that opens the way for the examination of the subject by that body, with the hope of leading to the rejection of the Eighteenth Amendment by judicial decision as being in itself, in its statutory form, where the power to legislate has been frozen, a violation of the constitutional rights of the people.
The correction of this deplorable experiment in fanatical tyranny through an ignoble law will restore the personal liberty which has been taken away, reduce general taxation through the revenues which will accrue to the Government, provide a market for the farmer’s surplus grain, furnish employment in harvesting, handling, and transportation to a million men, put an end to the most lucrative method of political graft, destroy the foremost incentive to crime, and end the national hypocrisy which has brought upon us the contempt of the world.

The only party today that is even remotely liberal is the Libertarian Party of America.

007 Spoiler Votes

Seven Bond books became movies before the Libertarian Party published its 1972 laissez-faire platform.

Reason magazine began challenging The Kleptocracy back in 1968, and probably convinced most of our fewer than 4000 voters to back the platform. That single, conscience-driven electoral vote was a shot across the bow of a Kleptocracy busily gorging on George Wallace Dixiecrat racial collectivism, foreign entanglement warmongering and girl-bullying xenophobia. Reason helped increase that to over 4 million votes, increasing 80% per annum by 2016. This James Bond satire is a sample of their output.(link)

Since 2016, infiltrators hacking the platform for importation of terrorists and taxation of citizens to support actual confessed or in flagrante murderers have temporarily paralyzed our growth. So when in doubt about new planks or communist anarchist candidate-impersonators, why not donate instead to the Reason Foundation? It’s the one move you’ll not regret.

Prohibition II at 64

Sound familiar? See original Antifa-Chad story (link)

Republican Gov. Ronald Reagan must’ve been horrified when young people turned away from revenue-generating heroin and opium to tasteless, colorless, odorless, harmless LSD – which was legal as sea salt at the time–in 1967.

It took three years of police beatings, infiltration and extortion for governments to change domicile flower children into individuals that were often a match for their own hired muscle. The news article tells the story:

Skippies – Tough Hippies – New Los Angeles Headache. LOS ANGELES – first beatniks, then hippies, and now Skippies. Laurel Canyon in a fashionable section of Los Angeles is home base for skippies, hippie -looking youths so named by Canyon residents for their reputation for skipping out on everything – EDUCATION, JOBS AND RENT.
Unlike their hippie look-alikes, the Skippies are described as harder, tougher than early flower children. And their appearance in Laurel Canyon has coincided, authorities say, with a sudden rise in the number of brushfires and burglaries and a burgeoning narcotics problem. [Sound familiar? After another 50 years of superstitious and violent prohibition laws, the same phenomenon has spread northward all the way through Portland to the Canadian border. Clearly California voters and the Federal Kleptocracy prefer this state of affairs to freedom and individual rights.]

All of California has been smoky with brushfires for years now, while looter politicians point to the hobgoblin of global warming as the evident culprit. Voters in California have alternated between the two halves of the looter kleptocracy these past 64 years, and wildfires have increased, litter is everywhere, and bands of violent ragamuffins take over entire boroughs and bankrupt the landlords now getting the initiation of force they voted for and deserve.
Might this be a good time to rethink these policies? Surely 64 years is a valid test of the Third Law of Politics:

For every initiation of force, there is unequal yet apposite reprisal force.

Austin Texas also enjoyed a hippie subculture at that same time. Kleptocracy governors John Connally, Adolph Briscoe and Bill Clements gleefully adopted shoot-first prohibitionism and competed with federal press gangs in the incarceration of victimless youths in prison cells and involuntary servitude in Southeast Asia. Right above the Lewiston Sun Article on coercion-hardened Skippies is an article on Women being bought and sold in Soviet Turkmenistan. See if this doesn’t remind you of Texas’ new Red Republican Wife-Beating and Girl-Bullying law:

Government Assails Bride Buying Still Practiced in Soviet. MOSCOW, AP –Yazbul Yagmureva was a champion cotton picker, a hero of Socialist labor, until her parents sold her in marriage. Her father got a nice sum of rubles, some sheep and cattle. Her husband said he wasn’t going to have his wife working on a cotton-picking collective, and Yazbul was “wrenched from her beloved labors” near Bayrim Ali.
“Was her song finished?” Asked the Communist Party organ Pravda. “No. Inspired by party appeals to fight against the old ways and remove obstacles from collective labor, Yazbul found the power to go back to work again and show her abilities.
“Now she heads a team of grape growers at another collective. Her team gets the highest yield, she is the mother of six and a candidate member of the Communist Party.” (link)

Texas: Involuntary servitude and forced labor (link)

Republicans have spurned Libertarian ways and returned to their roots, so grimly portrayed by Harriett Beecher Stowe, when Red Republicans were the starry-eyed Christian Socialists transfixed by Uncle Tom’s Cabin and eager for their own place in The Kleptocracy. In 2021 bounty hunters, gun in hand, scour the Texas desert, scrubland and brush country in search of girls to bully, while male Supreme Court justices grin in amusement and the New Turkmenistani Associate Justice meekly abets their masculine dereliction.(link) After all… didn’t Texans get exactly what their majority voted for?

The Anti-Leftist Smear

The Forgotten Cover Art (link)

For starters, this relatively new variation on the Argument from Intimidation actually works.(link) California voters had the opportunity to strike down a dishonest and incompetent looter politician, yet were defeated by a combination of chaff and binary collectivism. The chaff, like tinfoil dropped from bombers to confuse the enemy radar came in the form of a couple-dozen granola aspirants added to the ballot to disperse and scatter any opposition to the soft machine. But the more important strategy was a variation on The Forgotten Man.

The Forgotten Man you will recall, is that unremarkable individual to whom William Graham Sumner first called attention in an essay by that same name.(link) It is the man who is neither communist nor National Socialist, who minds his own business rather than meddle forcibly in the lives of others–and keeps his promises. This early reference to the libertarian personality was written by one of America’s most signal defenders of individual rights. Sumner was actually attacked and beaten with a stick by a Dixie Democrat for daring to suggest that black people also had individual rights.(link) FDR went to special lengths to pollute and obfuscate The Forgotten Man by equivocation with unemployable collectivist rabble whose votes he sought to divert from the communist parties.(link)

Nowadays, the Forgotten Man or Woman is invariably the Libertarian party candidate. In the California case, this was Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Hewitt, already working as an elected official in the state of California. Hewitt’s name was carefully elided from all public mention–even by Reason magazine–until just before the election, when it was too late to make any difference. Attention focused on a carbon copy of the Long Dong Silver candidate, an African-American Republican–a species nowadays about as common as an African-American running mate for George Wallace in the 1960s. That Dog Bites Man play was startling enough to actually work when it came time to confirm another girl-bullying prohibitionist to the Supreme Court in 1991.

Fake Hints that Clarence Thomas was an Ayn Rand fan disarmed opposition from defenders of individual rights for women. Thomas’ wig and nose were powdered and confirmed despite Anita Hill’s warnings. So another girl-bullier set to work helping Nixon appointees reinstate Comstock laws stripping women of individuality; essentially condemning them to involuntary labor like Sumner’s pitiable “harlot of slavery.”(link) Suddenly it was as if the 9th, 13th and 14th Amendments had never existed. The Libertarian Party promptly resumed its growth and hardly anyone but televangelical drug agents voted Republican.

God’s Own Prohibitionists, now at a loss to describe their boy in objectively positive terms after the California recall campaign, have–in desperation–taken to referring to the loser as “anti-leftist.” “Republican” has had more vote-getting appeal than “Christian National Socialist” in US elections after 1928 er… 1952. Today “anti-leftist” is a tarbrush wide enough to soil libertarians into presumptive association with Republicans, Nazis, and Spanish, Italian and Romanian fascists. To anyone who does not expect the truth from 2D looter politicians, this “winning by elimination” makes sense. Nixon understood perfectly that the Libertarian Party was the greatest threat ever to his force-initiating soft machine and struggled to have us ignored.(link)

Within 24 hours Nixon had the IRS subsidize non-libertarian parties to freeze out any growth of political freedom.(link) A way was then found to delete the Libertarian Roe v Wade plank–so attractive to women in the 1972 and 1976 libertarian platforms–and replace it with lame verbiage encouraging child molesters and openly inviting foreign terrorists to disregard national borders. Nixon subsidies, plus GOP and anarcho-communist infiltration, retarded but did not reverse, the growth of the Libertarian party–until the looters were driven to desperate measures by 4 million Libertarian spoiler votes in the 2016 election. After that, Fifth Column sleepers were activated and vote-repellent planks and candidates injected at all hazards. THAT got results:

Libertarian voters are outnumbered 32 to 1, but a single libertarian vote suffices to nullify 75% of the mass hypnotic effect of social pressure that causes folks to waste their votes on force-initiating authoritarians. One supporting partner in the Solomon Asch experiment caused test subjects to err 75% less often. Your libertarian vote can give 24 of those 32 benighted voters the gumption it takes to vote for freedom.(link)

ATA, Association of Translation Agencies

After the takeover by freelancers in 1980, once successful passage of a translation test became a requirement for the privilege of voting in association elections or running for office, the ATA de facto became the American Translators Association. Suffrage was also offered to translators of extremely rare languages for which no tests were available, on recommendation of two active members. The primary upshot was that actual translators of verified competence were put in charge of making ATA policy after earning the accreditation of their peers. The disadvantage was that owners of translation agencies could no longer make policy unless they first passed a translation test. Thus began the Golden Age of the American Translators Association, thanks to Ben Teague and Patricia Newman.(link)

Unhorsed translation agency owners made it clear they were discontented, and wanted their unquestioned authority restored. Individuals not competent to pass a written translation test were just as unhappy as people who drop out of college, and for the same reason. These two disgruntled classes were soon exploited by the American Society of Association Executives, which proceeded to retask the bylaws, install its own well-paid Executive to supervise ATA board meetings and make sure that our “elected” officers never receive so much as a penny for their efforts. Regular mail-in ballots used by similar associations were abolished by repeating unsubstantiated assertions, and a “proxy” system was installed so ALL votes are basically handed over to boardmembers. The ASAE also made sure that its own attorneys and soi disant “experts” were consulted on all policy matters. The new order’s big project sought to undermine our translator testing program and burden the ATA with its salaried hirelings. The ASAE itself advertises a staff of 47, not including attorneys–whose particulars are not easy to find.(link)

People unable to pass a simple translation test and too stuck-up to admit the fact, pestered the board members until “peer review” opened a loophole through which passed a flood of people unwilling to sit for a test–including some translation company owners. Agencies were thereby able to regain voting control over the Association as the ASAE tightened its own control over the the board of directors, orchestrating a series of single-candidate “elections.” Members who had earned the right to vote by passing a written test were shocked to discover that it suddenly cost over $350 a year to keep credentials they maintained for $50 during the 1980s. Younger members were pressured to buy tickets to conventions, etc., “or else” lose their credentials through added continuing “education” requirements which, to some of us, were not unlike extortion.

A so-called ASAE expert was paid 55 cents a word to produce an essay recommending that non-members be allowed to take the test. They could then qualify for exploitation by translation companies as certified translators. Almost nobody able to actually translate and vote thought this was a good idea and the motion failed. The extent of decay is such that of ATA members claiming the ability to translate Portuguese, only 1% have passed the tests from and into that language. Wannabees and beginners lacking ability yet inveigled into joining are clearly numerous enough to outvote actual translators who have clearly-demonstrated ability. A board appointed via single-candidate elections and run by a representative of a “Society” that staffs it with multiplying staffers it selects and puts on salary–is anything but a representative democracy.

The ASAE and the translation agencies it represents never let go of the idea of making translation tests serve their own purposes rather than those of translators. Instead of financing their own separate association with an independent testing program, they cling like brood parasites to the existing pool of tested-and-true translators. ASAE/agency plans to debauch the renamed certification testing program into a rubber-stamp handmaid service for agencies backed by an Orwellian managerial corporation is still at the top of a single-minded agenda that does NOT benefit professional translators.

Now they are back. As before, they are selling yet another ill-dissembled attempt to attain that purpose, papered over with insincere assurances and undisclosed “criteria” for packing the membership by adding pliable voters. And no wonder! The current germ lab viral epidemic has crippled the ASAE Executive’s ability to draw income by mandating attendance at conferences. It therefore comes as no surprise that a story was packaged-up with yet another attempt to “restructure” to favor volume and quantity at the expense of ability and quality. If you haven’t seen their pitch paper, write me.

If you believe colleges should hand diplomas to students who flunk exams, then put them on the Board of Regents, you’re what they want. If you believe that discrimination on the grounds of ability is baaad and that a goood rabble in ignorance is what the ASAE and translation companies need to help keep translators in their place, they have found their minion. **

But if you perceive that the ASAE resembles a vampire herding a large mob of potential translators into empowering a minority of middlemen to exert control over the tiny core of actual certified translators that make the association worth having, then reject the puppet board’s latest rewrite of the usual gambit. I will gladly sign a petition to be rid of ASAE control and management and hire and to pay actual tested translators suitable remuneration for their valuable service on the board–once they win a real election with at least two candidates in the running.
–J Henry Phillips, thrice-certified Life member, now in my 33rd year with what was, when I joined it, a genuine translators association worth keeping alive.

Footnote ** “All historical changes finally boil down to the replacement of one ruling class by another. All talk about democracy, liberty, equality, fraternity, all revolutionary movements, all visions of Utopia, or ‘the classless society’, or ‘the Kingdom of Heaven on earth’, are humbug (not necessarily conscious humbug) covering the ambitions of some new class which is elbowing its way into power. The English Puritans, the Jacobins, the Bolsheviks, were in each case simply power seekers using the hopes of the masses in order to win a privileged position for themselves. Power can sometimes be won or maintained without violence, but never without fraud, because it is necessary to make use of the masses, and the masses would not co-operate if they knew that they were simply serving the purposes of a minority. In each great revolutionary struggle the masses are led on by vague dreams of human brotherhood, and then, when the new ruling class is well established in power, they are thrust back into servitude. This is practically the whole of political history, as Burnham sees it.” —George Orwell, Second Thoughts on James Burnham (link)

Though it is legal for Americans to join England’s Libertarian Party, a way has been found–perhaps in horror of the hostile takeover of our own LP by girl-bullying fanatics and no-borders communist anarchists–to close Canada’s LP to yanks. Joining is not as heinous a felony as being less than smart about filing the politicians’ taxes. As an ignorant youth I tried it and only afterward learnt it was taboo. Still, honest Americans friendly with the peaceful tribes of Quebec and Ontario can be counted on to find ways to cultivate Libertarian Spoiler votes along our longest border with a country into which Americans flee Republican and Democratic party press gangs.(link)

In 1972 there was one Libertarian Party on Planet Earth. Wielding fewer than 4000 spoiler votes, it promptly got the Supreme Court to abolish the last vestige of girl-bullying Comstock laws passed during the military occupation government schools describe as “Reconstruction.”(link) The Selective Service Act by which politicians stay home and force citizens into harm’s way at gunpoint has so far escaped repeal through a Gentleman’s Agreement making it obtrude less pointedly upon the notice of its intended victims for the time being. This is because abolishing the draft is in the platforms of thousands of Libertarian Parties thriving and multiplying throughout the myriad counties and parishes of all 50 of These Sovereign States and most civilized countries.

This logistics replacement S-curve scared the krap out of the Kleptocracy!(link)

By 2016, the Libertarian share of the presidential vote had increased a thousandfold to 4 million–despite the Nixon law providing tax subsidies to the entrenched looter Kleptocracy since the day the LP was founded.(link) Canada’s Libertarian Party formed in 1973, and for decades Canada’s legacy parties have enforced no laws threatening doctors and banning medical birth control, just as our own force-initiating parties dare not so much as mention “the draft.”(link)

Until the current crop of collaborationists, saboteurs and infiltrators busily wrecking the U.S. Libertarian Party (to the sound of whoops of joy from fascist and anarcho-communist pressure groups) are winnowed out, cash donations to the Party of Freedom on the other side of America’s friendliest border are a good investment in the future of freedom.(link) If you know of an unaffiliated county LP still defending our principles, please let me know so I can spread the word.

It is a stain on America’s honor that the entrenched parties of aggression and depredation that caused the Great Depression–through their use of the violence of law to infringe the freedom of production and trade–have managed to export the Nixon law forcing honest people to subsidize soft machines in “elections” that rob and coerce them. The resulting hyperinflation, Crashes and Depressions wreck their economies, entrench rule by juntas, and drive hordes of terrified economic refugees seeking to flee into These States and the Provinces of Canada.(link)

Libertarian spoiler clout v. social pressure

group pressure: the application of direct or indirect influence by minority interest groups for the purpose of securing their own ends. The influence may be political, economic, psychological, or social, etc; the focus of application is ordinarily a governmental body or official, a political party, or a leader of prestige and authority. Dictionary of American Politics, Smith & Zurcher, 1944 p.148
This definition was published before the six death camps planned and built to institute Christian National Socialist altruism and Gleichschaltung in Europe.(link)

Eleven years later, psychologist Solomon Asch proved by reproducible experiment that 3 out of 4 college students will lie for no other reason than because they see a group of others doing the same thing. This experiment is superficially bandied about, but its conclusions–deadly to mystical superstition, totalitarian dictatorships, mercantilist monarchism and entrenched soft machine Kleptocracy–are invariably omitted.

Libertarian spoiler vote clout cures groupthink!(link)

Unanimity in error is why thinkers from Zamyatin(link), through Huxley, through Orwell, through Ayn Rand, through Heinlein, through the 1971 founders of the Libertarian Party have abhorred mystical collectivism. Its myriad mutations all rely on the same falsification of reality and its methods invariably distill base brainwashing from self-deception and collectivized conditioning. Lest anyone contrive to misinterpret: 3 out of 4 students will lie if induced to do so by an apparently unanimous majority.

Yet the minority observation of a single dissenter suffices to undo this contrivedly artificial arrangement. In Zamyatin’s and Ayn Rand’s socialist Russia, Luther’s National Socialist Germany, and the entrenched looter kleptocracy Nixon’s anti-Libertarian Law has molded from what was once the democratic mercantilism of These United States, the trend toward death camps is a common feature. We’ve not gotten there yet thanks mainly to the influence of Libertarian spoiler vote clout over the course of 12 national elections.

Mystical collectivists pressured politicians into adding the Communist Manifesto Income tax and Prohibition Amendment to the Constitution, thereby dislodging and nullifying the Bill of Rights. The drys did this with an average of 1.4% of the vote over the course of 11 campaigns, and the looter collectivists (the two groups overlapped a lot back then), averaging 2.3% of the vote along a decreasing trendline.

Just as these hateful lobbies’ votes were leveraged so that 1.8% changed as much law as simplistic theory expects from 51%, each libertarian vote is worth about 28 votes on average. This explains why even the most predatory States are hurrying to stop shooting youths and minorities over plant leaves. It also explains why superstition and pseudoscience have failed to bring back the bloody coathanger abortions abolished thanks to the 1972 libertarian platform. Remember military conscription to Southeast Asia? Yet many libertarian sympathizers allow paid liars to deceive them into throwing away the equivalent of 27 additional votes everytime they lack the integrity to vote for libertarian principles.

Both pressure groups demanded the initiation of deadly force in violation of rights, and we got what they voted for. They of course recognize the Libertarian Party as the exact opposite of what they want, and to this day spare no effort or expense to infiltrate, corrupt, deflect, pollute and defeat the libertarian party. We should have expected no less. Here is their graphic record of success in helping the fascists and communists alike to depict us as bomb-throwing communist anarchists. This is a variation of the Fisher-Pry analysis, that typically graphs how electricity replaces steam, democracy replaces monarchism, and how honest and ethical politics is was slowly replacing entrenched soft-machine Kleptocracy. Vote globally, donate locally! There are uncorrupted county Libertarian Parties all over America (and Canada).

With friends like the current Libertarian National Committee, who needs enemies?(link)

Libertarian Defense Caucus, 1982

Libertarians resist assimilation by looters

LP for Disarmament?
On November 8, 1981, the Libertarian National Committee adopted two resolutions – one resolving to dismantle US ICBMs, withdraw nuclear arms from NATO, and calling for a freeze on all nuclear weapons activity; and a second resolving to denounce the AWACS sale to Saudi Arabia – has reported in the November-December 1981 issue of LIBERTARIAN PARTY NEWS.
The author of the resolution was Sheldon Richman, who proposed disarmament planks at the 1981 Denver LP convention. A poll taken at the convention showed that libertarians strongly opposed disarmament. (…)

Commentary, by Egan O’Connor (the following was originally presented as a letter to CALIBER, the publication of the California LP, in response to an article by Jeffrey Rogers Hummel. The opinion expressed here does not necessarily reflect the views of the LDC.–MJD) (good article omitted to avoid copyright claims… pp 3, 4)

Disinformation Bureau
RE: “Derailing the Anti-Soviet Locomotive” by Sheldon Richman, INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, January, 1982 (publication of the Society for Individual Liberty) This critique of Richman’s weak B.S. is omitted lest anyone retaliate with copyright claims… It closes with “Mr Richman has conspicuously advocated nuclear disarmament, but a poll taken at the Denver convention indicated that this position was disapproved by the membership by a 2-to-1 majority.” (FRONTLINES, February 1982 …)

Editorial ~ Perspective
As Editor, I welcome you to the first issue of the Libertarian Defense Caucus newsletter, named AMERICAN DEFENSE in honor of the firm principle of a free society; self-preservation from foreign aggressors. I think it is incumbent on me to explain the objectives of this publication and give some indication of the themes that will be expressed here in future issues.
(1) As a newsletter, we will try to keep you, the reader, abreast of current developments respecting the fortunes, and activities of the LDC–as well as reporting on the evolution of Libertarian Party policy on the subject of national defense.
(2) As a publication of the LDC, we will offer a forum for the expression of outspoken, unorthodox, and controversial libertarian viewpoints on defense and how It may most effectively be obtained for this country. Ms. O’Connor’s article on page 2 is an excellent opening comment.
(3) Because many libertarians lack knowledge of defense matters, and because misconceptions abound within the movement and the Party, the newsletter will present regular articles that provide important information on matters relating to relating to defense, The “Disinformation Bureau” will highlight recent statements or arguments that contain false or prejudicial claims about defense, and will offer background factual material for the reader’s impartial judgement.
(4) To facilitate the purposes of the LDC as an LP caucus, the newsletter will feature articles that analyse the LP platform planks concerning defense policy and foreign policy. Recommendations for platform revisions or corrections will be offered for the readers’ consideration.
(5) Most libertarians favor a strong national defense–yet the Party seems to endorse a policy of virtual disarmament. This situation has come about because the libertarians who favor a strong defense have lost their voices through doubt and intimidation. They have been made to feel ashamed of their convictions by those liber­tarians who, like the Bolsheviks of old, are trying to represent their minority opinion as being the “majority” viewpoint. We of the LDC intend to reverse this process and give voice to the true feelings of the LP membership, whereby they may speak out proudly in favor of defending their land, and the people that they love, and the Constitution that has given us greater freedom than history has ever before recorded. This newsletter will attempt to be the ve­hicle of communication among pro-defense libertarians, that we may all know and be confirmed in our belief that those who love liberty will agree with us.
As Editor, I will do my best to honor fact above prejudice, to be fair in the face of strong disagreement, and to address the readership with candor and clear prose I promise to render my product according to the highest standard I can envision. In return, I expect from you, the reader, a critical eye and the willingness to point out correction when it in due.
In closing, I warn you to be prepared for bitter accusations that, by supporting a strong defense, you are betraying libertarianism. Take heart in the knowledge that freedom is worth fighting for . — Michael J. Dunn

This sampling is from the Libertarian Defense Caucus I joined in 1981 while living in Boulder and working for Petr Beckmann’s Access to Energy and The Golem Press. There was no Internet. A modem was a newfangled gadget Professor Beckmann brought into the mailing room to connect us with his house on Star Route. While explaining how it worked he fooked it up to wall current. With a flash and a spark the thing ejected a mushroom cloud a yard high, the exact shape of the one that rose over Hiroshima 4 years and 4 months after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

I am trying to reestablish contact with other LDC members. The LP is again infiltrated by communist anarchists (there is no other kind). At a glance you can see how voters react to the 2018 planks inviting infected terrorists to enter the U.S. uninspected and advocating vigilante lynchings and tax-supported room and board for confessed and convicted murderers.

1920 same as 2020

Record labels: Militarism, “Free” Trade, Government Ownership, Expansion (link)

The Nixon election subsidies law suppressing access to the Libertarian party has again trapped America in a circular repetition of history.(link) The same thing happened in Germany after that country’s pathetic defeat in World War I. See if this 1920 newspaper account sounds strangely familiar…

DEMOCRATIZING GERMANY. Most of the news coming from Germany nowadays, of whatever nature, seems to arouse little interest. The American public is rather “fed up” on Germany. Here, however, is a bit of news worth noticing.
The Berlin Board of Education is said to have started a thorough cleaning up of the school libraries, removing whatever books are found “contradictory to the new spirit of the times.”

What books, then, are being removed? “All books of a shamanistic, imperialistic, militaristic, nationalistic, monarchistic, and anti-Semitic nature.”

Surely, here is proof that Germany is getting somewhere. The foundation of the old German militarism was laid in the public schools. Every schoolboy has it didn’t into his ears that Germany was “the Fatherland, surrounded by foes.” Intense, narrow nationalism, hatred of other races, love of military display, worship of armed strength, the divine origin of German autocracy, all of these were taught as educational gospel. Now, if the news is true, they are all banned.

The springs of national thought and feeling are no longer to be poisoned. There is to be room and opportunity for the development of real democracy, a truer outlook on life and a more sane and generous appreciation of other races. Source: Berkeley daily Gazette January 23, 1920 – page four.

Both America and Germany were at the time trapped by political Kleptocracies empowered by the notion that there is something good about altruism and the sacrificing of freedom on the altar of duty and the initiation of deadly force. Less than 20 years of altruist prohibitionism, censorship, predatory communistic taxation, and bans on speech, movies, books and bawdiness were all it took for Krupp cannons to in 1939 again splatter destruction all over Europe and drag These United States into yet another foreign war–this one ended by nuclear weapons.

Only in 1947, with journalists again tut-tutting about German tendencies and tenured professors hand-wringing about how morality was trailing behind science did anyone dare to question the inherent goodness of altruism and suggest that the initiation of force was no longer worth the consequences.(link)
