Republicans banned ALL birth control

The same Republican party that made misdemeanor light beer a federal felony in 1929 had already banned all forms of birth control and related speech since 1873 (when several Democratic States could not vote). Even mentioning condoms and diaphragms was still illegal until after Herbert Hoover was defenestrated and the repeal of prohibition laws began in earnest.

The Confederacy lost the war, was occupied by federal troops, and its representatives barred from standing for office or voting. The result of this first voter suppression gambit was that the Republican candidate got 214 electoral votes to the Democrat’s 80. Nearly 3/4 of the votes that count were interpreted, with whoops of joy, as a mixed-economy mandate for the victorious coalition of Christians and Socialists in November 1868.

The parent act was passed as a postal regulation in 1872, which empowered former Union solder Anthony Comstock (author of Frauds Exposedan attack on free-speech Liberals), to decide what could be sent by mail and burn what couldn’t. “Liberals” at the time meant social libertarians bent on repealing censorship laws passed in 1865 with the Union victory. Here is the real 1872 parent law that allowed the infiltrator into the postal monopoly. The 1873 amendment made this bad law much worse.

With that crashing foot in the door, the rest of the world horrified and the economy in a deep depression, the law quickly got much worse.

Here is the text of the Comstock law.
March 3, 1873, 42nd Congress, page 1873, amending the already harsh and lengthy postal monopoly law of June 1872, which allowed Comstock himself to meddle in the mail service and begin book burning as an American tradition….

CHAP. CCLVIII—An Act for the Suppression of Trade in and Circulation of, obscene Literature and Articles of Immoral use. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That whoever within the District of Columbia or any of the Territories of the United States, or other place within the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States, shall sell, or lend, or give away, or in any manner to exhibit, or shall offer to sell or to lend, or to in any manner exhibit or shall in any way publish or offer to publish in any manner, or shall have in his possession, for any such purpose or purposes, any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, writing, advertisement, circular, print, picture, drawing or other representation, figure or image on or of paper or other material, or any cast, instrument, or other article of an immoral nature, or any drug or medicine, or any article whatever for the prevention of conception, or for causing unlawful abortion, or shall advertize the same for sale, or shall write or print, or cause to be written or printed, any card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement, or notice of any kind, stating when, where, how, or of whom, or by what means, any of the articles in this section hereinbefore mentioned, can be purchased or obtained, or shall manufacture, draw, or print, or in any wise make any of such articles, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction thereof in any court of the United States, or in any Territory or place within the exclusive jurisdiction within the United States, where such misdemeanor shall have been committed; and on conviction thereof, he shall be imprisoned at hard labor in the penitentiary for not less than six months nor more than five years for each offense, or fined not less than $100 nor more than $2000, with costs of court.

SEC 2. That section one hundred and forty eight of the act to revise, consolidate, and amend the statutes relating to the Post-office Department, approved June eighth, eighteen hundred and seventy-two, be amended to read as follows:
“Sec. 148. That no obscene, lewd, or lascivious book, pamphlet, picture, paper, print, or other publication of an indecent character, or any article or thing designed or intended for the prevention of conception or procuring abortion, or any article or thing intended or adapted for any indecent or immoral use or nature, or any written or printed card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement or notice of any kind giving information, directly or indirectly, where, how, of whom, or by what means either of the things before mentioned may be obtained or made, nor any letter upon the envelope of which, or postal-card upon which indecent or scurrilous epithets may be written or printed, shall be carried in the mail, and any person who shall knowingly deposit, or cause to be deposited, for mailing or delivery, any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, or any notice or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, or any notice, or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, and any person who, in pursuance of any plan or scheme for disposing of any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things shall take, or cause to be taken, from the mail or any such letter or package, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall, for every offense, be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned at hard labor not less than one year nor more than ten years, or both, in the discretion of the judge.”

SEC. 3. That all persons are prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, except the drugs hereinbefore-mentioned when imported in bulk, and not put up for any of the purposes before mentioned; and all such prohibited articles in the course of importation shall be detained by the officer of customs, and proceedings taken against the same under section five of this act.

[asset forfeiture provision]

SEC. 4. That whoever, being an officer, agent, or employee of the government of the United States shall knowingly aid or abet any person engaged in the violation of this act, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and, on conviction thereof, shall for every offense be punished as provided in section two of this act.

SEC 5. That any judge of any district or circuit court of the United States within the proper district, before whom complaint in writing of any violation of this act shall be made, to the satisfaction of such judge, and founded on knowledge or belief, and, if upon belief, setting forth the grounds of such belief, and supported by oath or affirmation by the complainant, may issue, conformably to the Constitution, a warrant, directing him to search for, seize and take possession of any such article or thing hereinbefore mentioned, and to make due and immediate return thereof, to the end that same may be condemned and destroyed by proceedings, which shall be conducted in the same manner as other proceedings in case of municipal seizure, and with the same right of appeal or writ of error: Provided, That nothing in this section shall be construed as repealing the one hundred and forty-eighth section of the act of which this act is amendatory, or to affect any indictments heretofore found for offenses against the same, but the said indictments may be prosecuted to judgment as if this section had not been enacted. APPROVED March 3, 1873.

Today the Prohibition party is reduced to pseudoscientific sputtering that Global Warming presents an “existential threat,” and proposes to transfer part of U.S. sovereignty to “other nations in mitigating its effects.” It also wails feebly against “anchor babies,” and decries the exercise of First Amendment rights by gays as “an abomination to God,” then advances the usual shibboleths calling for men with guns to ban plant leaves, betting, wine, beer, etc… Gone is the demand for a Constitutional Amendment to undo the Libertarian Roe v. Wade decision. Infiltrators have instead focussed on molding the Libertarian Party into a subsidiary copy of the original party that as of 1908 helped Socialists inject the communist manifesto income tax into the US constitution. The Prohibition party’s softened 2016 plank on birth control was:

We consider abortion to be morally repugnant. We will implement policies to minimize the number of abortions without infringing on the doctor/patient relationship and without thrusting government into family decisions about child rearing. Abortion procedures should not be funded by government.

The copy smuggled into the 2016 Libertarian Platform, to the discomfiture of women voters, runs:

Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.

Before the Roe v. Wade decision incorporated the Libertarian plank into jurisprudence, the Democrats and Republicans, content with the Comstock laws, had nothing to say about birth control. Then for 46 years Republicans and Prohibitionists yelped for an Amendment to override the Supreme Court. Today these anti-individualist looters stoop to infiltration, exploiting our resentment of the income tax they themselves imported from Germany, instead of calling for its repeal.  The prohibitionist-inspired straddle plank is an affront to self-owership and individual rights and ought to be deleted entirely from the LP platform.

Conservative altruism versus life

Fake moral compass

Altruism is subjective, anamorphic

Genocide is a social adaptation that observably marches in lockstep with altruism. Altruism itself is variously redefined by collectivists–especially religious conservatives–to infuse it with an odor of scientific eugenics.

This manufactured reaction dates back to Richard Dawkins’ “The Selfish Gene.” The book’s introduction humbly apologizes for unwittingly validating the individualist view of life and survival, especially the way virtue ethics considers values or goodness. Fourteen years before The Selfish Gene, similar ethical conclusions were advanced in Atlas Shrugged, a book organized mysticism struggled to pretend never existed in much the way The Party members in Orwell’s novel 1984 struggled to believe an apostate or “unperson” had never existed. Dawkins, a scientist, was harder to ignore, so distortion was relied on instead.

It is informative that since Dawkins’ writings, the idea of altruists as a race that reproduces sexually is again advanced by religious conservatives as solemnly as though it were a new argument. Bonobo monkeys and other instinctual beasts incapable of conceptual thought are offered by religious conservatives as examples that “prove” that altruism–acting sacrificially to benefit others, not self–is by Revealed ipso facto Definition “the” Good. A reinforcing example is the assertion that female Bonobo monkeys won’t copulate with non-sacrificial males. Leaving aside the yearning for female monkeys as the last possible partners girl-bullying brutes can hope for, the net appeal is to collectivist reproduction increasing the subspecies. Each Selfish Gene applies game theory to survival of the gene pool as accurately as physical phenomena apply efficient paths to conservation of energy transitions.

Yet genes lack the intelligence or moral decision making ability to avoid Malthusian disasters such as occur when population exceeds food supply. Whether conservatives also lack this discernment or simply rely on the Rapture’s host of angels lifting them bodily from the jaws of overpopulation crises leading to war, etc. is not obvious. One possibility is that control over children offers organized mysticism the opportunity to cripple young minds through conditioning and indoctrination. After all, in pre-1911 China, girls were encouraged to cripple themselves by binding their own feet, and actually thought this a “good” thing according to consensus and generally accepted community standards.

A mind is a terrible thing to cripple

Bound feet, crippled from early childhood per custom

The Conservative theory is a rewarming of the old Race Suicide view held by Roosevelt Republicans in 1906. The argument was structured in much the same way Lutheran and Papist nationalsocialism characterized “juden” in Germany’s Altruria as an invasive species that cannot be “assimilated” and must instead, regretfully and with heavy heart, be exterminated like so many Apaches or Comanches. From Adolf Hitler’s Theodoric struggle to use genocide for altruist collectivist eugenics, religious conservatism has lately evolved to Trump’s offer to extirpate the families of unappreciative Semitic tribesmen whose Sharia jurisdictions Christians so eagerly tax us to bomb.

Over a century later mystical ideologues STILL Stand at Armageddon Doing Battle For The Lord, exactly like the fanatical Mohammedans of similar ideology. This is the key difference between religious socialism and individualism. Communists and nationalsocialists never tire of each declaring the other are “not really” altruists. Yet both clearly value coercion, sacrifice, death in their fundamental manifestos. This is a subjective, distorted, unreliable moral compass pointing in the wrong direction in all cases.

Letting these twin variants of the rejection of reason replace science, philosophy–especially ethics–would be suicidal.  Fortunately it isn’t happening. The genocidal rampages of communo-fascist socialism in Germany and Russia were as vivid an object lesson as the amok berserker hijackings into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Communist vote shares in elections are falling like membership in mystical congregations. The Libertarian party is gaining votes and membership while the looter parties are shrinking. You can help by studying virtue ethics, voting and making a small donation to the Libertarian Party.

Was this exposition of a commonly-used misdirection into error useful? Remember this when you want an error-free translation of important legal documents. My other blog is in Portuguese.

Why voting Libertarian works

Why would anyone bother to drum up votes for the Libertarian party?

Read' em and weep, looters!

Libertarian share of votes earned in national elections.

Why ask for libertarian votes? Simple. Every such vote benefits ME, not the Kleptocracy candidate, by getting rid of violent laws.  Every time Ram Johnston loses an election by 3% when the Libertarian Candidate got 2% of the vote, that–like a smack upside the head–is a learning experience. For a Texas State Legislator, the loss of pay comes to $43,000 (not counting bribes and kickbacks).  Women voters who want to keep birth control safe and legal need not help the Democrats make electricity scarce and unaffordable. The Libertarian Party platform of 1972 wrote the Roe v. Wade decision into law with fewer than 4000 votes nationwide. Comstock Law Republican and Prohibition Party organizers are painfully aware of this fact, though they struggle to evade it. Your vote can count if it replaces a bad 19th-Century party with a good 20th-Century party that values freedom and individual rights.

Here is what a logistical substitution curve looks like. This is how the Whigs replaced the Federalists, and Red Republicans replaced the Whig Party.

Freedom replacing Left=Right coercive collectivism

The Libertarian vote share curve starts at 0 but never reaches 100% in a democracy.

Technically competent individuals who understand that electrical power generation drastically reduces the death rate are free to vote Libertarian. You need not help Republican-funded militarized police crowd prisons, shoot foreigners and confiscate property because mystical pseudoscience says to ban plant leaves. Conscientious voters change bad laws by keeping their integrity. Simple arithmetic makes voting for candidates that support the Libertarian Party Platform the most effective use of the franchise.  The only wasted vote is one that tells violent looters to keep trying to ban electricity, prohibit plants and repeal the Bill of Rights.

Energy enables eudaimonia

Interfering with energy increases the death rate

I am asking naturalized citizens to vote Libertarian and resident aliens to contribute to Libertarian campaigns.  The hardest part is helping voters understand that that your vote should benefit YOU, not some force-initiating politician. I prove this with algebra showing 1.4% of the vote in 11 campaigns brought the 18th Amendment which caused the Great Depression. Earlier, 9% of the 1892 vote brought an income tax law, so if 9% has the law-changing clout of 51%, then each People’s Party vote counted for six Republican or Democrat votes in terms of its effectiveness in forcing at least one of the soft machine factions to change its platform. These are examples of spoiler vote leverage.

Solving the 1892 equation for x yields 6. This shows us that every populist vote had six times the law-changing power of a vote wasted on a machine politician. In the Prohibition case, 1.4% of the vote made beer a felony as if it were the same as 51%. So set 1.4x=51, x=36 means every such vote packed 36 times more law-changing clout. This is the mechanism whereby the entire Socialist platform of 1920 became law by 1980, even with the candidates all losing.

The libertarian party is simply reversing that process. Hitler, Stalin, Franco, Lenin, Mussolini, Ceaușescu and Pol Pot have demonstrated the legal and economic results of socialism via historical events not on record in 1913. That was the year American voters believed the Communist Manifesto income tax was a good idea.

Do you have a good idea that needs translation for a larger audience?

Libertarian hockey stick

A little money riding on the Maple Leafs

Speak Softly, and carry a Hockey Stick! Special thanks to Online Curve Fitting

Organized coercion is fond of graphs that indicate growing popularity of a pretext for forcing folks. The hockey stick analogy is by now so overused as to have become an embarrassment to pseudoscientists of the looter persuasion–mainly because it has made no impression whatsoever on thermometers. 

Voters, on the other hand, are deciding–in accelerating numbers–that the initiation of force has had its opportunity to produce results worth having. Entrenched, subsidized Kleptocracy parties are stalled. Unable to attract voters, they successfully depict each other as repellent, dangerous, socially evil. Both such parties depict the Communist Manifesto income tax and the subsidies their electioneering receives from the IRS as necessary and good.

The Libertarian party, as you see, has been growing as in the graph showing the vote shares earned since the Y2k panic and New Millerite Climate Armageddon prophesying craze set in. Based on the last 5 elections, the above amateur sigmoid replacement curve fit suggests a Libertarian majority by 2074. Leveraged spoiler vote clout will meanwhile repeal and pacify much of the violence of law you see whenever the initiation of force is the preferred modus operandi.

No violence needed, and we don’ need no steenkin revolution. Simply cast your vote for the peace and freedom platform and opportunistic politicians will make change happen or be replaced trying to keep pushing aggression and coercion. A small donation couldn’t hurt, and will definitely bear dividends. Increasing freedom is winning!

Libertarian Impersonator False Flag

Laura Ebke?

“Elected” Libertarians?

 

The Anti-Choice movement, coercive by definition, has since 1976 been attempting to infiltrate the Libertarian Party in a belated effort to defeat the Roe v. Wade decision which the Supreme Court copied from the 1972 Libertarian Party Overpopulation plank.

1972 LP plank: “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.”
Jan 22 1973, Roe v. Wade decision: “(a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman’s attending physician. …”

In the intervening 11 campaigns Prohibitionist Republicans have tried to reinstate coathanger abortions and lost five times, mainly thanks to leftover Soviet anti-energy planks still in the Democratic platform. Since the Bush Asset Forfeiture Crash and Depression, a wave of prohibition repeal not seen since 1932 sweeps the nation, and God’s Own Prohibitionists have come up with a desperate Trojan Horse strategy: Inject an antichoice state legislator into the LP as a faithless defector bearing a package deal of gifts which includes guns pointed at Planned Parenthood physicians. Sound farfetched?

In 1992 a reasonably pro-rights Republican Senator, Arlen “Magic Bullet” Specter, was running for reelection. All of a sudden a coercive male zealot, John Perry, posing as a libertarian, got into the race thanks to dereliction on the part of the Pennsylvania Libertarian Party. The slip is particularly embarrassing since Philadelphia is the cradle of the Liberal Party. That party’s prohibition repeal plank was co-opted by the Democrats in 1932, a move that resulted in Democratic victories in five consecutive elections. Like The Atlantic magazine, the LP showed the male impostor the door. This is ordinary integrity–loyalty to one’s ethical principles.

The cross-dressing Libertarian impersonator elected by Republican votes is Sen. Laura Ebke of Nebraska’s 32nd district. The Greek gifts she bears are deregulation of bribe-dominated professions and partial clemency for persons branded felons by the Kleptocracy for associating with some plant leaves. Ebke’s cold deck is an offer to hand back a tiny portion of the individual rights previously sequestered by God’s Own Prohibitionists, in exchange for Libertarian acceptance of a planted impostor whom Nebraska Libertarians voted against. Here’s the Ram Johnston gunpoint coercion position, complete with misleading label:

Let me state unequivocally my personal positionI am Pro-Life. –Laura Ebke

The set-up has already brought panhandling spam from the LP in support of this Republican bait-and-switch trap. What remains to be seen is whether this particular sting, doubtless patterned after a John Grisham novel (Runaway Jury), will lure innocent Libertarian voters into betraying the individual rights won for women when Toni Nathan and John Hospers placed our platform before the voters and conquered individual rights for women.

One expects the Wall Street Journal to come shilling for Republican infiltrators. But this particular fake libertarian switcheroo has been convincing enough to take in LP fund-raisers and Reason Magazine. Their error, which the predators exploit, is to imagine that we need sitting politicians rather than libertarian spoiler votes in order to strike down bad laws. This red herring bait serves only to reinforce reliance on people, rather than the principles voters expect the party do defend with focussed integrity.

People of Nebraska, don’t fall for it. It’s a set-up! Swap your votes for leveraged Libertarian support in other districts if you can, but do not fall for this desperate false flag maneuver! The Republican/Prohibition Axis of Evil is gulling you to increase its lopsided control over your State by switching in a double for an additional 2%.

If you ever need translations of con games, loaded dice, shapes, misspots, cold decks, marked cards, long cons, rigged roulette wheels, shiners, false cuts, daubing, crimping, holdouts, peeking, palming, middle-card deals, stacking, waving, belly-strippers, pictures, luminous readers and other sharper and grifter hustles, drop me a line.

Dallas Hippies Vote Libertarian

RETALIATE!

Resistance is utile!

Yep, it’s a nightmare for Nixon National Socialists, but voting Libertarian gets results. Your vote for a Libertarian Party candidate forces incumbent politicians to repeal bad laws. Otherwise they lose to each other. Any way you look at it, you win!

Here in this issue of an old Dallas underground newspaper is the Lee Park Massacre Saga in five-part harmony, with the names of the quarter-thousand Texas teenagers arrested and charged with Plant Leaves! The massacre occurred April 12, 1970, when the Moral Majority, eager to get those George Wallace spoiler votes away from ku-klux Dixiecrats and into the Republican column, sent the cops to beat and arrest long-haired Grateful Dead fans for daring to breathe air alongside the leafy Avatars of Satan. These are the people George Holy War Bush and Donald Trump want put to death, when not even the Republican Party platform calls for such cruel and superstitious violence.

If you find the name of anyone you know on the list of those arrested, why not ask them to register and vote for the party that wants to repeal all those violent laws and expunge everyone’s record? Remember, we don’t have to actually elect any candidates in order to change the laws. But there are dozens of dozens of elected libertarians holding office–enough to scare the daylights out of rabid republicans and dictatorial democrats. Honest elected officials are switching to the libertarian party.

The fanatical Prohibition Party never elected anyone. They barely averaged 1,4% of the vote in 11 election campaigns. But they did put the Prohibition Amendment into the Constitution and sent cops to break down doors, jail and shoot men, women, children and dogs–and confiscate their property. The Crash and Depression were the work of the entrenched parties doing their bidding.

This works in reverse now that there is a Libertarian Party earning 5% and 10% of the vote all over the map, and 3.25% according to the federal vote-counting kleptocracy. If that doesn’t sound like much to you, it is a hell of a lot to some pulpit-thumping Republican who just lost by 2%.

Want proof? In 1972 many states were trying to bring back the Comstock laws, ban diaphragms, The Pill, anything having to do with birth control. The Libertarian party platform said to leave the ladies alone. Let women and their doctors decide things like abortion. The Supreme Court copied the Libertarian Plank into the Roe v. Wade decision, striking down Dixiecrat coathanger abortion laws. The Prohibitionists and Republicans have since 1976 been trying to put a Coathanger Abortion amendment into the Constitution.

Nothing irritates these initiators of force more than this increasing vote count going to the Libertarian Party. It is your best defense against their violent usurpations against individual rights. Ours is the only party that is growing hockey-stick fashion. Our platform seeks to decriminalize hemp leaves, LSD, cactus, mushroom and other plant products known to be safer than cigarettes, alcohol, pharma meds or addictive painkillers. Portugal has a Libertarian Party and decriminalized ALL “drugs” 17 years ago. Portugal is today the most civilized country in Europe.

Kick them where it hurts

Vote libertarian. It’s the ONLY way to repeal bad laws!

Duterte to replace Sessions

As usual, rumors are everywhere that El Presidente is about to fire or replace someone. And yet barely two centuries ago such rumors in Europe were about a ruler preparing to burn or behead someone. That’s Progress. But Beauregard Sessions is more than a reproach. The Alabama bigot is a return to George Wallace partisans keeping “dark people” in their place–much as satirized in Mr. Dooley and George Orwell’s “Burmese Days.” So why not enlist experienced help for prohibition enforcement?

“Our number’s up.** Best thing we can do is to shut up shop and let ’em stew in their own juice,” remarked Senator Grassley (R-IA).

“I don’t agree, I simply don’t agree,” Senatrix Feinstein replied. “We could put things right in a month if we chose. It only needs a pennyworth of pluck. Look at Amritsar. Look how they caved in after that. Dyer knew the stuff to give them. Poor old Dyer! That was a dirty job. Those cowards at the UN have got something to answer for.”

There was a kind of sigh from the others, the same sigh that a gathering of Roman Catholics will give at the mention of Bloody Mary. Even Mr Trump, who detested bloodshed and martial law, shook his head at the name of Dyer.

“Ah, poor man! Sacrificed to the liberals at the UN. Well, perhaps they will discover their mistake when it is too late.” “What about this fellow Duterte? Might he be a replacement for Mr. Magoo?”

** With apologies to Eric Arthur Blair–son of British Sub-Deputy Opium Agent Second-class, –and author of “Burmese Days.”
