Why ranked voting?

Racial collectivist spoiler votes dismembered the Solid South

All major changes in America since 1840 have come from the platforms of small parties. Sometimes these parties themselves became Soft Machines in their own right or remakes of earlier Soft Machines whose names became associated with excessive corrupt venality and parasitism. Big Government Federalists collapsed and reformed first as Whigs, then as Red Republicans. Smaller parties, typically formed around a particular issue, in every case end up winning either by swallowing a legacy half of The Kleptocracy or by causing it to incorporate them and their platform as its own–as occurred when Nixon Republicans incorporated George Wallace Dixiecrats (complete with watered-down racial collectivism and prohibitionism) over the course of the 1968 and 1972 elections.

During those same elections the laissez-faire youth movement, with its Human Rights and Buffalo Party factions, was gradually submerged by Democrats pushing the sort of unionized socialist, socialist labor and communist parties that had multiplied sevenfold after FDR beat Herbert Hoover. Republicans absorbed the Prohibition Party and KKK in 1928 and 1932, enacting confiscatory policies that wrecked the banking system, then the entire economy. The Great Depression increased Communist Party membership till it practically swamped the FDR Administration. Activists concerned with repeal of cruel laws were submerged by established looter parties advocating a planned economy no less coercive than that of the Republican-Prohibition coalition of the Progressive Era and Roaring Twenties.

Dixiecrats divided the Dems after the JFK assassination and Vietnam debacle

The only real change has been the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law of 1971, using the IRS to subsidize anti-libertarian party campaigns no matter how lamentable or deadly their aims. Now, suddenly, lobbyists for a gauntlet-style election process that lines up candidates and ranks them by the amount of hatred or adoration they elicit in extremely complicated processes intended to replace runoffs after close elections.

Speculative math aside, my question is: when was the last time a libertarian candidate won a ranked/gauntlet election? 

If never is the answer, I’d love to know how LP candidates did percentage-wise compared to earlier non-gauntlet elections in the same precincts.

The recent drop in Libertarian spoiler votes occurred in exactly the same electoral environment as our 328% gain in 2016–with rival Kleptocracy factions shrieking election fraud when defeated. The only difference were the anarchist plank to invite more terrorists and welfare state failures across the border, and the anarchist plank intended to replace execution of mass murderers with vigilante violence. Both of these planks–plus an ignorant anti-libertarian nihilist candidate on the top ticket–served to alienate 2/3 of the voters who eagerly supported the Libertarian Party in 2016.

Ranked gauntlet voting will not restore the popularity of a Libertarian Party given over entirely to communist, anarchist and nihilist orators. In fact, its adoption in internal LP elections resulted in appalling losses of lamentable national candidates even when state and local candidates fared well after having themselves been selected the way that worked for the two centuries preceding Nixon’s election subsidies law.

So what evidence from reality shows gauntlet voting has ever helped further reduction of the initiation of force?

Opposition party spokesman Styx

Exploiting the wishful self-deception of frustrated National Socialists has evidently become an attractive enough source of income to attract hepcats willing to stoop for easy pickings. The message is the usual litany of tu quoque and turgid accusations against lengthy rolls of dramatis personae. In other words, the usual serving of Nationalsocialist hot buttons with pauper foreigners instead of communists and wealthy mixed-economy parasites instead of stock-exchange Jewry. Appeals to Jesus are not as frequent as Hitler’s and the fascist penchant for pointing guns at women’s clinics is sidestepped and suppressed at every opportunity. By miscopying several tangential libertarian talking points, people like Tarl and Alex Jones color their performances with enough faux-libertarian mimicry to reassure Republican and Army of God dupes that they have a better understanding of freedom and coercion than libertarians–let alone godless atheist objectivists.

A side effect of these cheap imitations is that the semiliterate communist and cultured looter intelligentzia both have an easier time convincing THEIR dupes that libertarians are girl-bullying, Comstockist, book-burning, ku-klux lynch mobsters of the sort that voted in Bush & Bush2, yet failed to saddle us with McCain and Harridan or Mitt and Whutzisface. Real libertarians, these prophets assert, vote to send men to point guns at doctors and nurses at women’s clinics and to kick in the door and shoot dogs, kids and other occupants who might otherwise use the wrong kind of plant leaf. Why? Because all the things they predicted Clinton and Obama wanted to do, the other half of the force-initiating Kleptocracy are about to do–if God’s Own Prohibitionists don’t win–are much worse. Fascism’s a lesser evil, hence a Greater Good, got that? It doesn’t matter that Obama didn’t boil missionary children the way Republican National Socialists prophesied. None of the things Hitler said about Jews ever happened either, but the NSDAP went from a Gary-Johnson-like 3% to nearly half the total vote. Enough to jail their opponents and justify nuking those same duped voters had they not killed themselves in the nick of time

To make the theatrics more convincing, Comstockist republicans and communist anarchists have quietly infiltrated the Libertarian Party since 1980.(link) This is easily seen by comparing the original 1972 and 1976 platforms with current editions. Easily seen, that is, if you can find an authentic Libertarian Party platform. Here’s the April 2021 search result on a Kleptocracy site: (link) This is in keeping with the publication of National Party Platforms in 1972, listing every Kleptocracy, communist, socialist and prohibition platform since 1840, but NOT the 1972 Libertarian platform which the U. of Illinois Press disparaged and elided from its published compilation. An exhaustive inner search turns up this version NOT findable via Google: (1972 link)

Words in the Libertarian Party Platform

1980s platforms were soon swelled and contaminated with “Children’s Rights” (Child Prostitution, Molesting) planks that have not yet been deleted entirely.(link) Instead, voters are told to pretend they aren’t there. In 1992, after George Holy War Bush demanded the death sentence for some plant leaves and was ousted for senility, the LP platform was a rambling 12,435 words amounting to an hour and 20 minutes of boredom. A resumption of glossolalian tendencies in 2004 brought an apposite reaction and in 2008 the platform was again terse, even if unattractive to the female half of the electorate. Women were twice attracted to the party that wrote the Roe v Wade decision and handed it to the Supreme Court. So if clowns, anarchists, fascists, con artists and impostors are able to impersonate and infiltrate the LP–even mine it for enemy votes and donations like so many brood parasites, we have only our own Platform Committee to blame.(link)

The communist anarchist interpretation of the objectivist Non-Aggression Principle is non-sequitured into a demand that infected cattle, terrorists, foreign comandos and peasants fleeing Republican-exported economic collapse must enter uninspected into These Sovereign States.(link) That suggestion was entered into the platform as soon as The Kleptocracy realized that our 4 million spoiler votes had shifted way more than enough votes to change the outcome.(link) All Tarl and Alex have to do is fulminate against such treasonous gibberish and The Kleptocracy is free to kick in doors, confiscate your car and home for no reason and nobody will say a word. Another new plank calls for keeping the government out of the death sentence, presumably so good faith Army of God vigilantes can have a free hand killing individuals and not even face a hanging.

The brutal murder of any number of handcuffed black gentlemen is waved away by waving a throwdown coroner’s report saying the victim was actually walking-dead before the First Responder™ crushed his throat–settled science. Self-deception enables Tarl to imagine anyone actually believes the throwdown report. Women who watched news of Robert Dear murdering people at a Planned Parenthood wouldn’t vote differently if the fabrication were exposed and admitted in writing. Republicans (Trump, Judge Amy, Linseed Graham Cracker, Ted Hakencreuz and Congressharridan Greene-Teeth) want people like Robert Dear to coerce them with loaded guns on behalf of Their Invisible Friend. THAT settled the issue and also settled the outcome of the election. Inventing invisible vote fraud is the self-deception of bullies that just got their butts whipped by a bunch of girls, nothing more. Tarl and Alex helped elect Biden and also to undermine long-term support for peaceful non-aggression. They must be proud.

Lysander Spooner’s oath

It seems like it has to be fiction, right? Wrong! (link)

Spooner wrote: Go to A….. B……, and say to him that “the government” has need of money to meet the expenses of protecting him and his property.  If he presumes to say that he has never contracted with us to protect him, and that he wants none of our protection, say to him that that is our business, and not his; that we choose to protect him, whether he desires us to do so or not; and that we demand pay, too, for protecting him.  If he dares to inquire who the individuals are, who have thus taken upon themselves the title of “the government,” and who assume to protect him, and demand payment of him, without his having ever made any contract with them, say to him that that, too, is our business, and not his; that we do not choose to make ourselves individually known to him; that we have secretly (by secret ballot) appointed you our agent to give him notice of our demands, and, if he complies with them, to give him, in our name, a receipt that will protect him against any similar demand for the present year. 

The original law passed by Republicans reads:  “I, A.B., do swear, or affirm, (as the case may be,) that I will, to the best of my knowledge, skill and judgment, diligently and faithfully execute the office and duties of assessor for, (naming the assessment district,) without favor or partiality, and that I will do equal right and justice in every case in which I shall act as assessor.” And a certificate of such oath or affirmation shall be delivered to the collector of the district for which such assessor or assistant assessor shall be appointed. And every assessor or assistant assessor acting in the said office without having taken the said oath or affirmation shall forfeit and pay $100, one moiety thereof to the use of the United States, and the other moiety thereof to him who shall first sue for the same; to be recovered, with costs of suit, in any court having competent jurisdiction.


Section 12. And be it further enacted, That the Secretary of the Treasury shall establish regulations suitable and necessary for carrying this act into effect; which regulation shall be binding on each assessor and his assistance in the performance of the duties enjoined by or under this act, and shall also frame instructions for the said assessors and their assistance; pursuant to which instructions the said assessors shall, on the first day of March next, direct and cause the several assistant assessor’s in the district to inquire after and concerning all lands, lots of ground, with their improvements, buildings, and dwelling houses, made liable to taxation under this act by reference as well as to any lists of assessment or collection taken under the laws of the respective States, as to any other records or documents, and by all other lawful ways and means, and to value and enumerate the said objects of taxation in the manner prescribed by this act, and in conformity with the regulations and instructions above-mentioned.…

The second part or the original law reads:

Section 52. And be it further enacted, that should any of the people of any of the States or Territories of the United States, or the District of Columbia be in actual rebellion against the authority of the government of the United States at the time this act goes into operation, so that the laws of the United States cannot be executed therein, it shall be the duty of the president, and he is hereby authorized, to proceed to execute the provisions of this act within the limits of such State or Territory, or District of Columbia, so soon as the authority of the United States therein is reestablished, and to collect the sums which would have been due from the persons residing or holding property or stocks therein, with the interest due, at the rate of 6% (him thereon until paid in the manner and under the regulations prescribed in the foregoing in the foregoing sections of this act. 

This Spooner translated from vague, political legalese to the vernacular:

If he refuses to comply, seize and sell enough of his property to pay not only our demands, but all your own expenses and trouble beside.  If he resists the seizure of his property, call upon the bystanders to help you (doubtless some of them will prove to be members of our band).  If, in defending his property, he should kill any of our band who are assisting you, capture him at all hazards; charge him (in one of our courts) with murder, convict him, and hang him.  If he should call upon his neighbors, or any others who, like him, may be disposed to resist our demands, and they should come in large numbers to his assistance, cry out that they are all rebels and traitors; that “our country” is in danger; call upon the commander of our hired murderers; tell him to quell the rebellion and “save the country,” cost what it may.  Tell him to kill all who resist, though they should be hundreds of thousands, and thus strike terror into all others similarly disposed.  See that the work of murder is thoroughly done; that we may have no further trouble of this kind hereafter.  When these traitors shall have thus been taught our strength and our determination, they will be good loyal citizens for many years, and pay their taxes without a why or a wherefore.  

These were the exigencies of the war to preserve the Customs Union so that a Protective Tariff could smother competition from European or Canadian makers of plows, scythes, hoes, chains, knives, rope, bridles, bits and farm implements in general and allow Yankee manufacturers to set prices without fear of being undercut. Slavery had nothing to do with it except to preserve the backward colonial hub of the metropole-colony engine for enriching the nouveau Metropole of New England. The first Tariff of Abominations brought the threat of secession and federal coercion. The Morrill Tariff of 1860 made it reality and sparked the War Between The States.

Placed under oath

I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man
Nor ask another man to live for mine.

Question for the late Jon Roland, of Constitutionalism…

Article 6, paragraph 3 of the Constitution states: “but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

On several occasions I have had judges try to put me under oath to work as an officer of the court by asking me to perform to specifications “so help me God.” When I reply that “yes, I will interpret faithfully and accurately with or without help,” I am sometimes questioned, even pressured, to endorse something or someone nobody cares to define or produce evidence of, to act as my assistant

If a judge were to administer an oath endorsing other, equally mysterious helpers such as Allah, Bob, Thor, Minerva, Ra or Krishna, I would bet money and lay odds that the requirement would not pass unchallenged. Indeed, Mennonites and Amish congregants have some sort of objection to oaths per se, and are granted the option of affirming instead, but this sidesteps the issue of helpers lacking tangible credentials or ID being appointed by a particular judge, with those appointments confirmed by a court interpreter acting under what is tantamount to duress or intimidation. 

My question is this: Is there case law or jurisprudence to the effect that interpreters may be required to endorse “God” to assist us in performing interpreting work under oath? 

If there is I would very much like to challenge any such outcome based on the Thirteenth Amendment ban on slavery or involuntary servitude–at least until such time as God is verifiably paid by the courts for assisting in the performance of interpreting services rendered–and taxed on that legal income by the IRS. It hardly seems fair to drag someone into court to work for free as a helper to someone else who is actually getting paid.

Jon replies…

Is there case law or jurisprudence to the effect that interpreters may be required to endorse “God” to assist us in performing interpreting work under oath?

Not at the level of the U.S. Supreme Court, and they are not a proper part of any lawful oath of office. George Washington added the words “so help me God” to his oath, as was commonly done, but that is a gloss, not a requirement, and many sects, such as Quakers, protested enough that it was not an oversight to leave the words out of the Constitution.

Did you know that a witness, though he may be compelled to testify, may not be compelled to take an oath? That means that any false testimony would not be subject to the law of perjury, although it might be to the law of fraud. Traditionally, judges instructed juries to weigh that in considering unsworn testimony, which has not been uncommon in a country where many are not devotees of an Abrahamic faith.

All persons with sworn duties in court, including witnesses, are officers of the court, which is the entire assembly, not just the presiding officer, the judge, who only speaks for the court. Anyone may raise an objection, and should be allowed to participate in argument, not just the attorneys. The rules of parliamentary procedure were developed alongside the rules of courts and a court is just one kind of deliberative assembly.

Girls Batter Bullies

God’s Own Prohibitionists will eventually learn about women voters. (link)

Republicans are baffled at how religious prohibitionist national socialism could POSSIBLY be defeated in an honest election. After all, Trumpistas, like Herbert Hoover had the support of every mystical bigot in These Sovereign States. This is hardly the first time the baffling dilemma has surfaced. 

Anthony Comstock, religious fanatic turned Postal Inspector, in 1873 got President Grant to sign a law to make any kind of birth control–including motherly advice to daughters if posted–pretext enough for five years on a chain gang and a fine in gold worth $600,000 of today’s dollars. Theodore Roosevelt made it clear in 1903 that a woman’s place was in the Lebensborn maternity ward laboring against race suicide as recommended by Francis Galton before Galton was even knighted by His Royal Majesty King Edward. 

That law kept Margaret Sanger from imagining that the First Amendment had anything whatsoever to do with what women said or thought even after women helped elect Warren Gamaliel Harding. Harding, who kept three mistresses in addition to his wife, questioned the right of women to wear pants and thereby make the streets hideous. Women who had Hooverized against the Hun during the Great War eagerly voted their Food Czar into the White House. In this they were joined by the Ku-Klux Klan, whose feelings were hurt at the 1924 Democratic Convention, and by the Methodist White Terror, which by 1925 controlled 117 seats in the House and Senate.

No race suicide movement in eugenic National Socialist Germany!
Hoover’s 1929 inaugural speech declared “we are building a new race…”

The important thing then was to have more men with guns kicking down doors, shooting people, confiscating and padlocking property and seizing cash, bank and brokerage accounts suspected of giving aid and comfort to the Demon Rum of Beelzebub’s Beer. The prohibition law had in 1920 wrecked the economy until the police themselves took over bootleg booze production and smuggling. Prosecutor Mabel Willebrandt was America’s darling–less so to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Switzerland, England, Scotland, India and Japan–after whe convinced the Supreme Court the IRS ought to charge taxes on proceeds from heroin and cocaine in addition to the beer, sauerkraut and everything else containing 0.6 ounce alcohol per gallon.

This meant that drinking enough near beer to amount to a single shot of alcohol required drinking an amount of water sufficient to kill half of the customers hardy enough to try. Amid the flagpole-sitting and dance marathon crazes of the Roaring Twenties, several people died in contests held to prove the health-benefits of water-guzzling. European stock markets weakened into a downward slide as of May 1927. The U.S. bull market lasted until the Five and Ten law made beer and wine a felony the way the Comstock law had done birth control 44 years earlier. But when Prosecutor Willebrandt hit the glass ceiling at the DOJ, resigned and published the tell-all series “The Inside Of Prohibition” syndicated in 21 papers, the stock market went into its death spiral harbinger of The Great Depression, which increased Communist Party membership by some 800% and swamped the Dems in the 1930s.

Then The Reagan-Biden Crash of 1987 foretold the recession that ditched Daddy Holy War Bush. Then the faith-based asset-forfeiture crash of 2008 made girl-bullying bigots unattractive to women voters. Now after Boss Trump tried to push Ku-Klux Dixiecrat reversions to girl-bullying Comstockism, God’s own Prohibitionists lost again.

Conclusion? 2020 HAD to be voter fraud! No way would women wise up and vote against those who deny them individual rights, right?

Prohibitionism destroys the banking system

Almost everywhere in the world people sip a cold one in biergartens, backyards, sidewalk cafés–but Wizened Christian Temperance Union Amerika, under laws left over from Andrew Volstead’s Minnesota and the Anti-Saloon League–ain’t one of them places. Fortunately Americans have a choice. You can choose not to vote–people in Australia and Brazil have no such option. You can also choose to vote for Libertarian freedom instead of the mangy, sclerotic soft machines that want men with guns to shoot young people over plant leaves and confiscate their property. 

The pro-slavery and protectionist parties that dragged us into a civil war over tariff policies are still in business. Indeed, the Communist Manifesto, written even as they girded for violence, is still a thing to a huge dictatorship that “accidentally” poisons the planet with germ warfare weapons from time to time. The communist party is over 170 years old, and the Dems and GOP even older. 

Communist dictatorships collapsed in the 1990s, but were not replaced by libertarian societies. Instead, there was a reversion to superstitious mercantilist mixed economies featuring less chattel slavery and colonial rule, but otherwise fairly authoritarian. The media and academia are so heavily infiltrated that it is impossible today to find a chart showing how the fraction of humanity under communist rule has varied in recent decades. Go ahead, try it, and get back to me if you do. 

spoiling for a fight

The number of libertarian voters struggling to replace kleptocracy machine candidates over time is easy to find. Ways are found to keep them out of office, but even that is breaking down under the increase in libertarian voter support. Yet before 1972 there was total hopelessness. War enslaved men into involuntary combat, and prohibitionism brought wars and banking collapses.

Money deposited with banks and brokerages is low-hanging fruit to looter governments. When seized on some pretext, owners of unseized money withdraw it from the fractional-reserve banking system. The economy collapses, communism and looting in general increase, and the media are charged with explaining the whole thing as the result of “too much” freedom or “not enough” coercive regulation–which amounts to the same thing. 

After the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law passed, news media understood that pretending the crashes had nothing to do with hatchet-wielding Treasury, tax and prohibition agents was a lucrative source of cash. And so it is today. Yet every individual can make a huge difference by the simple act of casting a vote for Libertarian freedom and against the senile politicians of the GOP and Dem soft machines.

Minneapolis, July 1934

Communist rioters = ANTIFA

Antifa 1934; see original (link)

The Tuscaloosa News p. 1 STATE’S TROOPS PATROL STREETS IN MINNEAPOLIS–City Placed under Military Rule as Governor Fears Further Disorders–CITIZENS UNAFFECTED BY CONTROL FOR MOST PART–Radicals Again Blamed for Strike as New Peace Plan is Drafted— MINNEAPOLIS, July 27 (AP) Employers rejected the suggestion that they can reconsider the refusal of peace terms advanced by federal mediators in the truck drivers strike as federal authorities turned inquisitive eyes on two suspected Communists linked by police with the strike. 


MINNEAPOLIS, July 27 (AP) Concentration of National Guard troops in downtown Minneapolis because of the truck drivers’ strike, was increased by the moving in of an especially trained “shock” troop Battalion today.

  Quietness pervaded the city as the Third Battalion of the 206th Infantry entered the downtown district with a heavy complement of arms, including gas guns, field machine guns, and automatic rifles. The men, most of them veterans with war experience were specially trained in dispersing crowds.

  Military rule of the city, decreed yesterday by Gov. Floyd B Olson, this morning brought guardsmen to every corner of the heart of the downtown district. They acted on instructions to prevent parking within a 76-block area except to discharge passengers, and to forbid the gathering of crowds. They wore steel helmets and carried rifles with fixed bayonets.
 

1200 in City


  The total strength of the guard within the city approximated 1200. Some 2800 more men still remain at city limits, ready for call. Whether this reserve force would be demobilized and sent home, depended on developments in the next few days. Sixty-eight persons were injured, most of them wounded and one fatally, by police shotguns a week ago today when pickets attempted to halt a loaded truck.
Armed guardsmen patrolled the downtown district as federal mediators, the Rev. Francis Haas and E.H. Dunnigan, prepared a new peace plan they expected to complete today and the employers’ advisory committee again publicly blamed Communists for the strike. All efforts to settle the controversy so far have failed.


Citizens Not Affected


  For the most part, citizens were unaffected by control of the National Guard. Striking drivers, however, were forbidden to congregate out-of-doors in large numbers without written consent of Adjutant General E.A. Walsh. This order also applied to all gatherings of 100 persons or more.

  Employers were unable to move commercial vehicles, save trucks bearing necessities, without official permits from the military. Trucks that did not move today, plied the streets without armed police convoys for the first time in almost a week.
  Deliveries of breadstuffs, milk, ice, beer, gasoline were unhampered by guardsmen. This did not (Continued on Page 2)LINK

STATE’S TROOPS PATROL STREETS – (Continued from Page 1)
include deliveries of pie, cake and pastry, for which permits were required. Automobile parking in the downtown area was forbidden from 5 AM today until termination of the military rule.

  A few hours before the troops got underway, both sides failed to agree on peace terms promulgated by the federal mediators. After the military took control, the employer’s advisory committee issued a public statement condemning communism.


Communist Boast


  Quoting “the Militant,” organ of the Communist League of America, as boasting “our comrades played a leading role in the preparation and conduct of the great strike in Minneapolis which electrified the entire labor movement,” the employers concluded:

   “Communists are daily throwing additional Minneapolis workers out of employment by obstructing delivery of supplies. Communists are defying civil authorities. The strike in Minneapolis is not a strike of union labor for redress of any wrongs. It is a Communist uprising aimed at gaining control of our government by force – using labor organizations as the means. (…) Compare with today (link)

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT had inherited the Banking Panics and Great Depression from Herbert Hoover’s enforcement of the March, 1929 Increased Penalties Act.(link) Like the Harding crash of 1920, that larger economic trainwreck caused citizens to line up to join the Communist party–its membership growing by a factor of 9 from 1929 to 1939.(link)  

Prohibition Crashes increase Communism

Communist membership 1934 prohibition crash hockey stick (link) Cf National Membership by Year

Meanwhile in Germany, where the Herbert Hoover’s 1931 Moratorium on Brains made it possible for National Socialism to win elections, rearm Germany and meddle in European politics…

Christian Socialists thick as thieves

Just like Nixon helped the Kleptocracy with the 1971 Anti-Libertarian Law–only it backfired…

Front page of same newspaper: HEIMWEHR WORKS FRANTICALLY FOR DEFENSE OF CITY – Anarchy Prevails over Whole Sections of Country; Battles Rage – SOLDIERS DRAWN AROUND GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS – 500 Men Believed Killed in Fighting; Nazis Attempt Drive from Bavaria – BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, July 27 (AP). An Unconfirmed Report That Italian Troops Have Already Crossed the Austrian Border near Villach caused grave concern in government circles tonight. (…) 

Strange how History rhymes, no? (link)

WINNING!

Economic Recovery, 1923

Prohibition, ergo Crash

Beer precursor crop crushed by prohibition, then relieved by nullification

There were two significant components to the economic recovery of 1923. One was nullification of prohibition law enforcement, when dry killers learned it was better to accept bribes than take return fire. The increase in U.S. hop production is proof of increased demand for the precursor plant buds used in brewing Beelzebub’s brewski. Continue reading

ANcommunism 1924

Excluding European Looters

ANcommunists before the LP.org

After the 3-year Depression presaged by the first Prohibition Crash of 1920, Congress reacted to the sudden increase in looter anarchist partisans with the 1924 Immigration Act. Here’s how it worked. 

Encouraged by confiscation, fines, asset forfeiture and cruel prison terms imposed on miscreants not shot on sight, religious fanatics turned the force of law against Sunday baseball. They blacklisted merchandise and made a crime–not of violence–but of trade and production.** America then was (thanks to our oilfields) a mystical satrapy more like Saudi Arabia than Iran.(link)

But in a fractional reserve banking system where securities are sold on credit backed by the value of the stock shares, confiscations, fines and asset forfeiture cause depositors to remove money from banks and sell off their stocks. The money supply contracts sharply and a liquidity crunch generates a wave of bankruptcies. Depression results and voters rightly conclude they’ve been had.(link)

This happened in 1907, 1914, 1920, 1929, 1987 and 2008. The mechanism is described in Friedman’s “Free to Choose.” When these events of 1920 and 1929 impoverished the nation, there was no opposition Libertarian Party to turn to. Voters turned away from the failed Kleptocracy and canvassed for communists operating under several different names. Communist ranks increased both times.(link

Prohibition Crashes increase Looters

Prohibition and eugenic lead to poverty, communism,  fascism and war

The Kleptocracy dropped the ball, angry voters went elsewhere and communist membership doubled in the 1920-23 Depression. Communist membership fell when the dry laws were suborned and prosperity returned. But the 1929 Increased Penalties Act crashes caused communist numbers to double by 1932 and increase to five times the 1929 figure by 1937. With still no Libertarian Party to turn to, economic blight brought racial collectivist Christian National Socialists out of the woodwork in the US, Europe and Latin America. Another World War followed. That all changed after 1972.(link

After George Bush Jr orchestrated the asset-forfeiture Crash of 1980, seizing bank accounts and homes containing a potted hemp plant, the economy went to hell and ku-klux christianofascism suffered a telling blow. After twice failing to elect mystics, God’s Own Prohibitionists hired a trained persuader who was assisted to power by backlash against Global Warmunist pseudoscientists and anti-industrial doomcriers.

Gary Johnson running as a quasi-Republican girl-bullier in 2012 doubled our vote share thanks to the search for outside parties. But when Johnson recognized the individual rights the LP defended for women in 1972, our take went up 328% to 4.5 million votes in the federal elections and another 8 million or so in more important down-ballot elections.(link) The Libertarian Party is growing 80% per year and all the looter parties–communist and fascist alike–are losing members.

Once voters understand how government agent bank robbers and home-confiscators wreck the economy and attract coercive altruism, we stand to add another 8 million votes in general elections for 36 million overall. That kind of spoiler vote clout could repeal the 16th Amendment and free individuals of the IRS. But if the current Libertarian Platform Committee adds idiotic voter-alienating planks, or a conspicuously insane street person or girl-bullying republican gets the nomination, all is lost.(link

What caused the 16 Feb Crash?

Asset-Forfeiture Looting is not Free trade

Asset-forfeiture is the leper’s bell of an approaching looter.

Type S&P 500 and choose the 6 month index. By running the cursor along the peak of the curve you can tell when the slope of the curve turned negative. That date looks like 19FEB2020. CNN expelled a huge smokescreen on China’s Communo-Virus close to then, but CNN is not of a truthful persuasion. The corporation actually PAYS airports to display its screed on waiting area screens, and nobody had more interest in asset-forfeiture looting than Nixon-law subsidized media looters. So who is next on the list of usual suspects? Whose name appeared on the Flash Crashes of 2008, 2010 and 2015?(link)

Yes, I am talking about the Financial Action Task Force currently tasked with looking into corruption in not-really-communist China. And guess what… see those twin troughs just to the left of February 19? The high point just before the fall-where the slope goes from increasing to decreasing–coincides reasonably with issuance of a Swiss report on how Swiss banks have agreed to FATF-approved Knife Your Customer and similar policies. The report was released, I’d wager, on or about February 17, 2020, judging from the stock prices graph. The FATF is very careful to avoid exact dates unless there are no nearby stock gyrations.(link

FATF reports and such are reportedly released in Month, Year, and surrounded with a smokescreen of obfuscating acronyms. The MER on Switzerland was adopted in October 2016 and at the urging of AML/CFT advisors went through R.2 through R.21 with threshold gaps triggering due diligence requirement adjustments and execution of operations in cases of suspicion. Since the same Swiss whose papers debated U.S. newspapers about wholesaling heroin in February of 1929 are today deemed too naíve to write their own laws, the FATF hands elected representatives AMLAs to sign and pass, and scolding CDBs (a looter code of ethical robbery).(link)

FATF does admit that an OBA-FINMA became enforceable with guns on January 1, 2020, and for the ten-thousandth time dins its message that anyone who would rather not be robbed by tax collectors can only be so anti-social if actually practicing or at least abetting the financing of religious terrorists flying hijacked planes into tall buildings in New York.(link) Everywhere you look, logical disjunction is resorted to to deliver this point subliminally. Any declarative statement, even “two plus two makes four” is still true after some dishonest skunk tacks on a disjunction. Two plus two makes four or five is therefore as logically true a statement as it was before tacking on the cognitive mutilation and repeating it a million times–sad, but true.(link

So a preference for keeping your own money means–in FATFspeak–you are morally the same as 1912 balkan Mohammedans or Christians kidnapping, raping and murdering each other, and selling the survivors to the highest bidder.(link) By their lights, this makes you OAD FCT according to the GBCF.(link

You can see how this goo, like the language in the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1987-is contrivedly hard to follow or, once grasped, to explain to the innocent. Then again, if your pet policy is guaranteed to wreck the economy that pursues it, clarity is the enemy.
