Biden on Prohibition, 1986

September 27, 1986 CONGRESSIONAL RECORD – SENATE (Bayes page number) S 13973 (link)
Mr. BIDEN… These vitally important programs will now go unfunded if this amendment is not adopted. The TASC Program was designed as a response to a rapidly increasing proper crime rate caused, in significant part, by drug offenders. We all know why that is. The fact of the matter is that, unless you happen to be a multimillionaire or have access to a bank, if you have a drug habit, it is an expensive habit. And there is no doubt in anyone’s mind why there is so much street crime. Somewhere on the order of 50% of all the street crime in America is attributable to drug abuse. That is, when someone wants to go buy the cocaine or go buy the heroin or go buy the marijuana, they crack someone over the top of the head, take their wallet, take their purse, and half the time they are under the influence at the time. I see my colleague from Arizona standing, I am happy to yield to him.

Mr. GOLDWATER. I was interested in what the Sen. had to say about the cost of the dope habit. And I recall – I may be wrong – but I think I recall that England at one time sold narcotics at drugstores without prescriptions or anything else. I have often wondered – not facetiously – whether that might not be a cure in our country. They are going to kill themselves eventually. Let them do it cheap.

Mr. BIDEN. Well, you know, Mr. President, we sometimes smile about that, but the Senator from Arizona has raised a question that a number of very, very thoughtful and intelligent people have raised, and that is the argument that has been underway for some time in this country along the following lines: If, in fact, we not only have spawned a multibillion-dollar industry – over $110 billion a year and profits to illegal syndicates and individuals, not unlike the days of prohibition – in light of that fact and coupled with the fact that 50% of the crime on the street, violent crime, is attributable to a junky going out and forcibly wresting from a citizen their dollars and their cents and their money and in the process, many times, killing, maiming, or at least abusing them; and the fact that over 50% of the burglaries in America, the reason why people break and enter into homes is in order to pay for their drug habit – they steal your television, sell your television, and by the heroin – they say. “Well, if that is the case, why don’t we just legalize it?”

Now, it sounds funny, but look at it for a moment. If, in fact, drugs were legalized, that any heroin addict could walk into a clinic and get heroin, then the need to go out and mug my mother in the parking lot of the Acme is diminished, because they do not need the money in her purse. And also those major crime syndicates, which flourish and feed off society, would have their pocketbooks emptied very rapidly because people would not be paying for it. So it is not a crazy idea.

But I would say to my friend from Arizona, who is in fact one of the true civil libertarians in this country – and I mean that sincerely – the answer is one that will not come to him is one that is unexpected and one that his philosophy, understandably, will find somewhat difficult. It is that big brother made a judgment that, in fact, we not only should protect those addicts and junkies who will kill themselves – the average age, for example, of a heroin addict, the life expectancy is about 28 years of age. They die by then not because they are shot, by the police as they are jumping barriers, but because they overdose on heroin. They, in fact, kill themselves with the drug. And that is why the average life expectance of a drug user is relatively low.So we, as a society, have made the judgment, which I happend to subscribe to, that we should, in fact, protect our citizens even those who are inflicting this sin upon themselves.

When did the Crash arrive with a Depression?

The second reason is that as a people it seems to me, I say to my friend from Arizona, the government of the United States should not knowingly condone something they have no doubt about the effect of the use of. In other words, even though we would diminish, I have no doubt, diminish crime, and we would diminish the size of the syndicates, it seems to me, I say to my friend from Arizona, we would be making such a statement about the morality of this country that it is something we could not live with, that if we as a country were to conclude that notwithstanding the fact we could reduce crime, the price at which we would reduce it would be to legalize something that is patently immoral on its face, and legalize something that in fact we know will result in the death of thousands and thousands of American. Although on balance the argument can be made we probably would have less crime, and we would have less of a pernicious impact on the part of organized crime, and we have as a society opted not to do that. As usual – and I am not being solicitous – my friend from Arizona not only has the insight to raise the tough questions, but has the courage to raise them.

Quite frankly, as my colleague from Arizona knows, most people would not even want to raise that question for fear that the political opposition would run around saying, “Charlie Smith is for heroin, and Charlie Smith is for such and such.” We need more of that kind of input into this question. I compliment my colleague. I do not ask him to accept the answer other than to acknowledge that it is the reason why we have chosen not to go that route.

Mr. GOLDWATER. I am quitting politics. So I can accept the Senator’s answer. He has satisfied me.

By spewing forth such absurd lies couched in the unvarnished superstition and strutting ignorance that “we” must be forced at gunpoint to send police to shoot kids over plant leaves, Biden revealed his true colors. Today, plain thermometer readings show no increase. Yet this doddering blowhard expects your sanction to be thrust back into the Dark Ages of answers that cannot be questioned.(link) If Big Brother, after listening to lobbyists, chooses to send men with guns out to shoot kids and confiscate bank accounts until the economy again crashes into a depression, it was a good time for Goldwater to retire.

The Looter Kleptocracy has evidently pressured media companies such as WordPress to make blogging as difficult as possible before the election. Twelve million libertarian votes would go a long way toward removing new impediments to blogging and restoring the usual formatting tools.

This is your 12th opportunity

What (not who) will you vote for?

 In 1840 your male vote for Northern Democrats said “rob me;” for Whigs said “raise import tariffs,” and for Southern Dems said “rape black women and beat the men to death.” Your vote said one or the other

In 1860 there were no more Federalists or Whigs, only high-tariff spenders on improvement and primitive rapists and bulliers of slaves.  Your male vote said either “protective tariff” or “secede from the monopolistic high-tariff Customs Union.”

In 1880 your male vote could say “arrest, tax and rob people over whiskey and beer” and “bully them for Jesus,” or “bring back White Supremacy,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” That was the third-party alternative. 

In 1900 your male vote could say “make war, raise tariffs and ban liquor and drugs,” or “White Supremacy but no sumptuary laws,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” All three alternatives required coercion.

In 1920 your vote could say “White Supremacy and sumptuary laws” or “sumptuary taxes, confiscation and imprisonment,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” All three alternatives required the initiation of force.

FINALLY in 1972 your vote could say “White Supremacy and sumptuary laws” or  “conscription, bombing, fascism and Comstockism,” or “replace the initiation of force with freedom and individual rights for women!” For the first time ever, spoiler clout leverage worked in favor of freedom and against coercion at gunpoint. The LP got under 4000 presidential votes then, and over 4.5 million in 2016. That’s an increase of a factor of 1100 over the course of 44 years in which the world population doubled.

Now that we still have such a clean cut alternative, in 2020 you may for the 12th time choose one of 3 alternatives on the ballot in every state: You may vote to “endorse Nixon fascism,” or “endorse Eurasian communism” or “increase freedom by reducing coercion!” Two of these choices are the same as asking to be whipped, paddled and humiliated. Only one tells politicians that you have enough dignity to recognize and enforce your own individual rights and the rights of others. 

This is your 12th chance to vote Libertarian or sanction coercion. Which will it be?

Legalize freedom with spoiler votes

 

The Jo Jorgensen campaign has put together a really good ad. It tragically omits the fact that in a fractional-reserve banking system, prohibitionist asset forfeiture wrecks the economy with bank failures, market crashes, monetary contraction, liquidity crises, bankruptcy and loss of your retirement savings. Prohibition enforcement kills people, yes, but it also WRECKS THE ECONOMY!

Opium prohibition in China caused the Crash of 1837 when the Quing Dynasty emperor suddenly ordered British and American opium traders deported. Britain liquidated all investment in American improvement bonds and a Depression ensued–and a series of wars that killed 25 MILLION people.

The Panic of 1893 included a prohibition element in that lame duck Harrison cracked down on smuggling of high-tariff opium right before Cleveland was inaugurated. The panic of 1907, like the Silent Panic of 1903, was also largely a result of prohibition of patent medicines, blended whiskey, and ignorant uprisings against ice houses in a flurry of State prohibition laws.

The 1920 and 1929 crashes were absolutely caused by prohibition and use of the communist income tax amendment forfeitures and fines as an enforcement crutch. The banking panics began when Al Capone’s cronies were railroaded on tax evasion charges, and glucose, yeast and malt factories were indicted for liquor conspiracies. Banks closed because it was withdraw it or lose it. Even Friedman and Schwartz missed this causal connection, but it’s all in Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929!

Nixon’s Operation Intercept and Quaker prohibitionism emulating Herbert Hoover also directly triggered a recession officially recorded two months after his orders to point the loaded guns at peaceful people. 

Biden, Bush and Reagan’s congresses signed off on the Anti Drug Abuse Act of 1987, and my October of 1987 mandatory drug testing, mandatory minimums and asset forfeiture had the economy in a Crash, collapse and recession. 

Bush Junior’s faith-based asset-forfeiture Executive Order directly caused the Crash and Recession of 2008, ushering in 2 terms of Democratic Party kleptocracy. Believing in the Nixon media’s either/or wasted vote mendacities is a lose-lose proposition.

Communists without Borders

Spoiler votes topple Comstockism 1892

Communist spoilers carried 5 states with 22 electoral votes and enacted a Manifesto Income Tax

Many of the things communists agitate for in mixed-economy States would get them shot in their own dictatorships. The current fad in democracies is to infiltrate nascent libertarian organizations and persuade any suckers present that inspected jurisdictional boundaries are baaad. The obvious reductio argument for this is that wholesale importation of foreign terrorists and infected herds of cattle is goood–but this is never the preferred approach. Even birds are smart enough to know there is something wrong with a snake climbing the tree to approach their nest. 

Beware of altruism

Donations to the hijacked National Party

Imagine a burglar infiltrating a homeowners’ association and persuading the members to remove their front doors, leaving only the openings. Though difficult to imagine anyone liable to go along with the plan so baldly stated, social pressure can make it happen. Several infiltrators join the association in cahoots, then issue comments like “I sure saved on electricity since removing the front door.” This is reinforced with “me too” rejoinders and appeals to the virtue of gregariousness over “isolationism.” Soon homes can be burgled without so much as a by-your-leave. That is what has happened to the National Libertarian Party more than once.(link) Back then it was Republican infiltrators wrecking the LP in retribution for the 1972 platform having handed the Supreme Court the language that became the 1973 Roe v Wade decision

infiltrating brood parasite

After uninspected entry onto the LP Platform Committee

By the late 1970s Libertarian publications contained ads offering “Anarchist Pamphlets,” while unemployable cognoscenti poured forth assertions that closing the gate or inspecting border crossings is an act of aggression and a breach of ideological consistency. Shills are swapped in to replace actual libertarians loath to remain in the company of suckers and cretins.(link)

1 equals 0

The fallacy of equivocation

Voters find themselves confronted with platforms that demand “children’s rights” to be used as catamites and uninspected open borders entry of religious terrorists in suicide vests showing no identification. The resulting fake Libertarian party is promptly tarred and feathered, the Kleptocracy lustily resumes its asset-forfeiture looting with both hands in the till, two snouts in the trough and First Responders™ shooting kids with qualified immunity. It has happened here and is happening again now, thanks mainly to communist anarchist infiltrators passing themselves of as “libertarians”.

Libertarian versus Anarchist

 

Do you know the difference between a libertarian and an anarchist?

Anarchist pollution

A libertarian acts to minimize the initiation of force.

Altruistic Climate Arson

Open Borders Burn Baby Burn!

Read the original (link)

Would a self-sacrificing woke altruist toss a handful of burning straw into a forest to wake people up and Save The Planet? The job is easy… no annoying surveillance cameras to provide embarrassing evidence, and there are thousands of instances of similar arson going on right now within cities bristling with cameras. West Coast newspapers are now trying to avoid the subject and whine at how elected officials avoid being looted by the IRS.(link)

Use your Chinese computer to search for “forest arson” and screen after screen fills up with “climate arson nonsense,” “forest arson rumors,” and innuendo branding as loony anyone able to think for a minute that the people who deliberately set fire to stores to send a political message would ever dream of torching a single bough of one of Joyce Kilmer’s trees. (link)

The 1988 forest torchings torchings in Israel coincided with a sharp upswing in forest firebuggery in California, Oregon and Washington–States so loaded down with Asians that they insisted on a Chinese Exclusion Law back in 1882–renewed in 1893. The communist system in Europe was collapsing in 1988, with people fleeing by hundreds of thousands to escape totalitarian altruism. It’s a rare communist anarchist zealot who would pass up the chance to make Fearless Leader look good by amplifying terror of Misanthropic Climate Warmunism. But China itself has its own mysterious forest fires blazing, suggesting that two can play.  “Open Borders” rhetoric inviting uninspected entry is one of the chinks in Uncle Sam’s territorial jurisdiction that invite invasion by foreign commandos and facilitate arson by miscreants within.(link

But that’s crazy talk. “Sane” talk is Assistant Drug Czar Joe Biden bawling that Boss Trump is engaging in “climate arson.” Libertarian voters are witnessing the failure of a Kleptocracy so enraged by it’s own Janus-faced other half that it will deliberately burn cities and forests and shoot people in the back in a bid for more political power with which to wield added harmful and deadly coercive force. Voting Libertarian is voting against aggression. (link)

Repeal Victimless Usurpations

 

If either Kleptocracy party wants to “win,” its platform should include repeal, decriminalize and expunge. Tarl tells it like it is, but leaves out the relative law-changing clout of Libertarian spoiler versus Kleptocracy bootlicking votes.(link)

Remember Jerome Tuccille? He was a Libertarian candidate back about 1976, and wrote “It Usually Begins with Ayn Rand,” which I recommend.(link) He also wrote a Trump bio I haven’t read. But the important thing was the lesson he learned as a candidate. Every vote cost $6 in campaign spending at that time. Converting to current dollars, all else held constant, today’s votes would cost $36 apiece in 2020 dollars. 

It's a hard rain...

Spoiler vote replacement effect

So if I were to waste a vote on the Dem or GOP platform promises, that 0.00000007% of the vote total would accrue to the benefit of one or the other looter party as $36 worth. But the Libertarian party vote growth rate in 2016 was increasing at a slope of 1.2, which is an angle of 50 degrees, accelerating rapidly. This rapid growth imparts extra law-changing heft to each libertarian vote–heft that does not require that our candidates be sworn in

But Libertarian candidates did win 73 races last year, a palpable drain of money away from Kleptocracy coffers and an enormous decrease in their effective social pressure.(link) Their party mathematicians are painfully aware of these facts–especially the fact that when the LP.org vote share is larger than the difference between their “winner” and “loser,” the probability projections for their loot, pelf and boodle go out the window. Libertarian spoiler votes pack roughly 20x the law-changing clout of bootlicking Kleptocracy votes. So on average, LP spoiler votes are worth $720 apiece. If you instead vote Kleptocracy you are throwing away $684 worth of vote clout!

 

Nixon almost lost when girl-bullying racial collectivists handed George Wallace the electoral votes for four Dixiecrat States. Wallace, like JFK, was quickly riddled with bullets, which was the equivalent of a Chappaquiddick incident for nomination purposes.(link) The GOP absorbed the Klan and broke up the Solid South. On their third confrontation with the Libertarian Party–whose 1972 plank was rewritten as the Roe v Wade decision, Dems in 1980 plunked for subsidized birth control (link) rather than the Libertarian solution of deregulating the medical cartel. Their open borders preference for flowers and granola to repel Soviet nuclear attacks did them in.

NOW the Dems and God’s Own Prohibitionists(link) are realizing how spoiler votes change election outcomes, and whining lest your vote benefit YOUR FREEDOM rather than some looter politician’s hand in your pocket! Ain’t that something? Listen to what the looter parties say about each other and remember all that on election day!

Withholding sex?

Libertarians against Crash and Depressions

 

Since 1998 I have shown that Prohibition enforcement–telling people at gunpoint what they may consume–caused the Crash and Great Depression. It is also the cause of most organized crime and cowardly ambushes of citizens by police and vice-versa. Voting Libertarian is your chance to save the economy from prohibition related depressions as in 1907, 1920, 1929, 1969, 1987 and 2008–not to mention the Flash Crashes. It is also the best way to keep your kids from being shot by men with guns acting on behalf of dangerous zealots inflamed with pseudoscientific beliefs. 

Republicans crash the economy by sending goons to confiscate homes, autos, bank accounts, brokerage accounts, life savings, aircraft and equipment. This causes money to disappear from the fractional-reserve banking system, and brings liquidity crunches, bankruptcies, stock crashes, recessions and unemployment. It also undermines the value of private retirement accounts. 

Democrats help Republicans do all of the above harm to the economy, and also to casually murder young people–especially young brown people–while importing the failed communist and national socialist policies that impoverish and kill people wherever they gain a foothold. Democrat-controlled cities resemble Venezuela and Cuba, Angola, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Syria and Togo. Democrat efforts to make demonize electric power and man industry are no less superstitious than Republican coercive exorcism of plant leaves as avatars of Satan. Helping either gang of looters is self-destructive and wrong. Setting them an example, and letting them lose by ignoring it is a teaching experience. 

The 2020 Republican and Democrat platforms STILL call for men with guns to rob, jail and shoot kids over plant leaves. 

Here are the Libertarian vote share percentages for the 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 elections now increasing at a slope of 1.2 or 50 degrees. This logistic replacement curve indicates we are on track to secure eleven million votes this presidential election. This will also upset many down-ballot races by upending the more violent candidates in favor of less cruel, better-educated and less fanatical replacement officeholders.

Killers with Badges, 1929

First Responder murderers acquitted

Gunfire-riddled auto in which Henry Virkula was murdered by ICE agents in 1929

Henry Virkula was out for a drive with his wife and kids when customs agents leapt out of the bushes and riddled their flivver with buckshot the night of June 8, 1929. This was during Dry Hope Herbert Hoover’s Administration under the Five and Ten law making beer a chain-gang felony 2 days before his Inauguration. Like today, the Methodist Board of Temperance, Prohibition and Other People’s Morals bellowed that the killing was “justified” under the eugenicist tenets of Positive Christianity. Dry Killers was the exact technical term used by citizens and newspapermen alike.

Army of God, just following orders

Christian National Socialists exulted in dry killer antics

First Responders were, as always, justified in murder, according to the experts on what Jesus would have done: 

“The second case was that of the De King killing in Aurora, Illinois.  That seemed perfectly horrible until the facts were ascertained and broadcast.  Now the most intelligent people know what happened and see considerable significance in the fact that the grand jury refused to indict the officer involved.  (…) On the Rouse case, the Board said Officer Rouse “killed a rum-runner in the act of committing two felonies,” adding: “The rum-runner had made an assault upon him by the use of poisonous gases produced by a smoke-screen device.  Officer Rouse was completely exonerated by the grand jury.  (…) (LA Examiner 6/17/1929)

Does this sound like a Minnesota cop union mouthpiece waving an “official” medical examiner’s report?(link

There were no throwdown guns, throwdown beer or throwdown medical examiner documendacities or rumors of active warrants to get overeager ambush murderers off the hook. In fact, the International Falls City Council promptly gave notice to Republican President Herbert Hoover on 18JUN1929: 

Dear Mr. President: The International Falls City Council voted and passed upon the following resolution:
                “Whereas at an open meeting of business men and city officials of this border city last June 14 an informal appeal to the President was drawn up, asking him to end the terrorism inflicted upon our citizens and neighbors by Federal customs patrolmen, engaged in prohibition enforcement;
                “and whereas, our appeal has remained unanswered, even though the vicious and unlawful conduct of said government agents have continued unabated‑‑except that there has been no fresh murder of our innocent neighbors;
                “Therefore, be it resolved that we, the City Council of the City of International Falls, in regular session assembled, do hereby remind the President that the memorialization of the citizens’ appeal was and is the articulate pleading of the community:
                “And be it further resolved that the City Council of the City of International Falls does hereby join its official voice in requesting from our President an urgent response to the pleas for help from our people. (Hoover 1929 1974  195)

Senator Millard Tydings of Maryland was at the time compiling a list of prohibition murders, naming names and giving particulars for publication in “Before and After Prohibition,” so politicians encountered tough sledding trying to ignore over a thousand slaughters.(link)

I thought I smelled beer... BLAM BLAM BLAM!

“Send these murderers to the penitentiary” appeared in Congressional debates.(link)

None of this mattered. It was only late in 1929 that statistician Clark Warburton began pointing out that the black market in banned beverages amounted to 5% of the entire U.S. economy, an amount larger than the entire budget of the federal government tasked by the 18th Amendment with killing, confiscating, libeling, padlocking, jailing and murdering every man woman and child in These States if that’s what it would take to force people to drink what the Prohibition Party ordered them to drink.(link) The Prohibition Party averaged 1.4% of the vote in 11 electoral campaigns. There was no Libertarian Party, but there was a Liberal Party demanding repeal.(link)

Libertarian vote growth

Can you say hockey-stick replacement curve?

By January of 1930, no religious fanatics dared debate the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment, armed with Warburton’s exhaustive reports and calculations on consumption of every possible ingredient used in the production of recreational beverages.(link) Women came out for repeal and financial collapse, unemployment, burgeoning prisons, Hoovervilles, riots, blockades, arson, cop-killings, hunger and economic contraction got the voters’ attention.(link)

The Democrats copied the Liberal Party plank demanding repeal of the Prohibition Amendment.(link)  Hoover promptly became a repeal advocate, but Republican National Socialism was into coercive eugenics and helping Hitler to power, and wouldn’t listen.(link) By March 4, 1933, with every bank in the nation already closed down, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was sworn in and the Dems–who had not yet become communists–ruled the roost for 20 years. 

Does any of this sound familiar? like it rhymes? Why not compare the short and simple Libertarian Party Platform? 

Are you surprised to learn how the repeal of prohibition began? Buy my book, Prohibition and The Crash, for a month-by-month examination of how President Hoover’s enforcement of the Jones Five and Ten Law crushed the U.S. economy.

Vice: Jo Jorgensen, domestic terrist

Brawling looters matter

I mean Portland, Seattle? OK, Chicago, Minneapolis, Nueva Jork, Los Angeles, Kenosha?

A blue-eyed Aryan Portland murderer self-described as 100% Antifa was recently pumped up on VICE “news” as the goodthinkful Aryan First Responder™ providing “security” at brawling looters matter riots.(link) Someone claiming to be Krishna Andavolu cites one Tess Owens as the internationalsocialist reporter on nationalsocialist memes, rumors and hearsay.(link) Tess revealed that Libertarians dress up in shirts and march (or dance) with loaded guns wherever Antifa and brawling looters assemble. Listen to it yourself.(link) The part about Libertarians–who by definition and agreement reject the initiation of force–being the same thing as Boogaloo Boys described by the Vice reporter as (7:40 to 7:57), “code for civil war…” ackshully

because it was used to refer to as an sort of uprising against the government among the Libertarians and Second Amendment gun rights crowd.

At Radikaal an altruist (Coughs Murder?) who, like Krishna recites English as though thinking in Urdu, introduced Tess of the d’Uber-shrills. Tess speaks propah English, much like Robert Griffiths or Jeremy Corbyn–and recites many of the same stanzas, only without the boojwah and WORKing Class punctuators.(link) Her verbiage is sound-edited into a smarmy stacatto on and on about: anti-government kind of troubling lot who exploit and are plotting with explosives, wear shirts with dangerous underpinnings conflated with dangerous neo-nazis down rabbit-holes and [get this!] “dancing with guns!” Considerable airtime also went into making the Federation for American Immigration Reform out to be worse than the SS guards who kept prisoners from escaping from Treblinka, Auschwitz, Sobibor and Majdanek. Why? Because they help preserve inspection of entry visas.

Tess rattles on like a George Waffen Bush two-minutes Hate about domestic islamofascist terrists and mean-type fashions, and accellerationists who hate Law Enforcement™. Like any antichoice Republican or other looter she is absolutely in favor of the initiation of deadly force and breathes “Law Enforcement™”(link) the way RNC attendees breathe “First Responders™” (the murdering cops to whom they dedicate their Positive Christian National Socialist platform.) Oh, the blonde looter gunman, remember him? Like Goering, he preferred the firing squad to the noose. 

None of the Vice crowd have in my hearing said anything about getting rid of cruel laws or dialing back coercion. On this score they (Vice, Radikaal, Antifa, Dems, GOP) are more like Biden and Pence, Lenin and Hitler than any Libertarian I know… They sound a bit like successful hijacker Jeremy “Spike” Pinhead, the legalize-murder anarchist infiltrator hostile to the U.S. Constitution now hobbling Jo’s campaign. We have the Mises Caucus to thank for helping Jeremy shove the Libertarian Party into an anarchist jurisdiction. With friends like these… (link) who needs embarrassments!(link
