Biden-Reagan crash, 1987-88

Senator Bob Dole, a “Just Say No” groupie, placed on the 9/26/1986 agenda S.AMDT.3034, to strengthen the laws against illegal drugs, and for other purposes. This was another Wesley Livsey Jones 5&10 law of 90 years ago, adding Gestapo tactics and looting to existing prohibition laws. These repeat events occurred 33 years ago.

Opinions and Social Pressure, Asch, 1955

The prohibitionist bandwagon effect, 1989 news ad

Senator Biden insisted on S.AMDT.3092 tweaking Dole’s meddling. A year later the Omnibus Drug Enforcement, Education, and Control Act of 1986 hit the political arena, the market crashed and Biden on October 21, 1987 put the Federal Criminal Fines and Sentencing Act on the calendar, which eventually mutated and passed as the entire economy collapsed. Why not look at that law? Mandatory minimums, asset forfeiture, the whole recipe for a Great Depression, papered over with paper money, is in there.

Now that the same geriatric asset-forfeiture prohibitionist is gearing up for another run at the White House, what happens when you search for the text of his economy-wrecking piece of weaponized legislation?

This sort of strategy was outlined in Orwell’s 1984:

How could you make appeal to the future when not a trace of you, not even an anonymous word scribbled on a piece of paper, could physically survive?

Similar slits existed in thousands or tens of thousands throughout the building, not only in every room but at short intervals in every corridor. For some reason they were nicknamed memory holes. When one knew that any document was due for destruction, or even when one saw a scrap of waste paper lying about, it was an automatic action to lift the flap of the nearest memory hole and drop it in, whereupon it would be whirled away on a current of warm air to the enormous furnaces which were hidden somewhere in the recesses of the building. As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of The Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in its stead.

Persistence leads to a mutilated scan sprinkled with plausibly deniable typos. (link)

There you will find the Department of Justice Assets Forfeiture Fund, which looting funds the “compromise and payment of valid liens and mortgages against property that has been forfeited.” This practice led to the 2007-8 subprime mortgage-backed securities crash as unreported thousands of homes were seized and then dumped by kleptocracy looters with service pistols. For $38 you can see just how heavily redacted is the asset-forfeiture information on these confiscations from 1988 to 1992. (link)

Looters will be Looters

Looters with guns and uniforms… Death Sentence!

The causes of the Flash Crashes of 2010 and 2015 are in there too, as “financial investigative programs that target the identification of money laundering operations and assets obtained through illegal drug trafficking…” Both the Democratic and Republican parties created this mess, as on the night of January 16th, 1920, and the crashes of 1920, 1929, 1987, 2010 and 2015 were the direct result, along with all the financial losses, impairment of retirement savings and pension funds, unemployment, currency inflation, terrorism brought on by deadly meddling overseas.

The resulting dilapidation of U.S. infrastructure and erosion of our foreign goodwill and image abroad is the result of these cruel and superstitious laws created at the behest of mystical bigotry backed by pseudoscientific perjury and data-tampering. Stock values fell 34% in 2008 because George Waffen Bush funded faith based fanatics and unleashed them with a license to loot. (link) (link)

Sullum’s Drug Debate

Hippies, Blacks, Mexicans--murder them all!

Killing is the whole point of sending men with guns to kick down doors, fire on vessels and riddle automobiles with bullet-holes!

Watching Nick Sarwark get bushwhacked by the debating tactics of a libertarian-impersonating anarchist made for a sense of foreboding over Jacob Sullum debating a prohibitionist. The opening argument–that violent narcs murder and maim people–could have been copied from the 46-year-old news clipping above. (link) Sullum recited almost identical stories of brutal mayhem against bystanders and even brought up the deliberate mass-poisoning of populations by adding wood alcohol to ethanol–of which practice God’s Own Prohibitionist (a novelist and pseudoscience hack) feigned ignorance, even surprise.

Road to Crashdom

Law Bites Lawmaker!

Prohibitionist hypocrisy original article (link)

The Providence Evening Tribune also reported such amusing fare as Law Bites Lawmaker, above. This is a lot like today’s news, where a California global-warming activist politician resigns for slipping on the no-drug-orgies-with-interns rule that she herself voted in.

With eerie familiarity the same page tells of the unending reparations and war loans soap opera (link), nicknamed the League of Debtors (link), and of Syrian moslems exterminating Jews (link). Zeppelins now strike us as unusual, and 1929 constitutional debates were not over guns, which everyone freely owned, but whether the 18th Amendment could prohibit Stand-Your-Ground home brew for household consumption. Dry agents murdering motorists, homeowners and boaters were an almost daily occurrence. (link)

Our parents and grandparents couldn’t legally get beer, just as we are mostly prohibited from having plant leaves and guns. Government bureaucracies deliberately poisoned safe beverages with methanol–causing permanent blindness. As alcohol was driven underground it was quickly replaced by German heroin. As relatively safe drugs are banned today, fentanyl is replacing bulkier painkillers just as easily-concealable Everclear replaced beer in 1929, and FDR replaced Herbert Hoover in 1933.

Oddly, but not coincidentally, asset-forfeiture rampages by religious zealots with guns caused financial upheavals and banking problems in both eras.  The illegal economy and stock market dividends were untaxed before 1927. Then, as of March 2, 1929, economic instability set in, increasing in oscillations.

Fast-forward to September 15, 1986, when a similar phenomenon set in, worsening abruptly on May 5, 1987, and tilting into an accelerating stock crash on September 16, much as in 1929.

When in June 2007 the mortgage-based derivatives market reacted like a punctured balloon, nobody mentioned the Financial Action Task Force report on Money Laundering through the Real Estate Sector and Laundering the Proceeds of Illegal Narcotics Trafficking. Just as pointedly did they ignore the March 7, 2006 Bush Jr. E.O. on the WHOFBCI and the Federal Equitable Sharing Fund set up in April of 2008. This was the green light for prohibitionism as an excuse for robbing money and property without so much as an accusation, much less a conviction of the victim.

The neighborhood effects from prohibitionist asset plundering were quickly noticed when Barack Obama got 365 electoral votes in November, and when Bush Jr a week later announced:

Well, I have obviously made a decision to make sure the economy doesn’t collapse. I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system. I think when people review what’s taken place in the last six months, uh, and put it all in one, in one, (sigh), you know, in one package, they’re realize how significantly we have moved. (link)

You do see the video, right? It’s not down a memory hole or anything like that, right?

Start of the 1929 Crash

The U.S. stock market began following the fall of the German and French stock markets during the first few days of September, 1929. Above is a typical story about a small still–the large, continuous stills producing thousands of gallons a day never made it into the papers. The story (link) hints that the agent on vacation was turning a blind eye to liquor production, and that his officious replacement was cracking down with faith-based determination and lusty asset forfeiture, but that the coast will again be clear next Wednesday.

RAIDERS SEIZE MOONSHINE STILL—Mash and Finished Product Found at Pawtucket. A Pawtucket raid in which federal prohibition agents attached to the Providence office, under direction of Chief Raiding Officer Michael A O’Brien, today seized a 100 gallon moonshine still and large quantities of mash and finished product is the 22nd seizure whih the office has effected since John W Morill, administrator in charge of the office, left on his vacation two weeks ago.
As a result of the raids, a report of which is being tabulated by Carl A Nelson, drug store inspector, acting as administrator in the absence of Mr Morrill, 21 Rhode Island men have been taken into custody and arraigned before United States Commissioners on charges of violating the prohibition act.
The number of stills and beer plants uncovered during the raids had not been tabulated by Mr Nelson to-day, but the acting administrator indicated that they would far exceed the number seized by the local office over a similar period a year ago, when, he said to-day, seizures totalled six.
No defendant was found on the raid conducted today, on a two-story dwelling house at the junction of Yale and Notre Dame avenues, Pawtucket, where the agents claim to have seized 47 barrels of moonshine mash and a large quantity of alleged moonshine whiskey.
Four stills uncovered last night by the agents in cellars of two houses on Division Street, Central Falls, were about the filthiest in the experience of agents attached to the local force, it was indicated to-day, the report stating  that quarters where the stills were uncovered were infested with rats and other vermin.
Mr Morrill, who is spending his vacation with members of his family in Maine, is expected to resume his duties in this city next Tuesday. Mr Nelson will leave on his annual leave of two weeks the following day. (Providence, RI Evening Tribune 31 AUG1929  1)

On the same page (link) is a report on the difficulties experienced in collecting war reparations payments from Germany. After Austria and Germany attacked other narcotics-producing nations in 1914 then lost in 1918, every country invaded was counting on German reparations payments provided under the Treaty of Versailles. With that money they then paid a little toward the loans gotten from Uncle Sam while being throttled by the Accursed Hun. Throttler replaced throttlee in the Versailles treaty, yet Germany, now fanatically inspired by christian National Socialism, spent its drug income on political parades and armaments, while demanding everyone else disarm.
