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!

Should the need arise for translations involving actual data obtained by measurement, think of it as an opportunity to seek out a libertarian translator.

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.

Texas Libertarian Platform

Our system works in spite of government...

Read it, why dontcha?

Looking over the  candidate application form, the striking thing is “do you agree with the Texas LP platform?” The question is not easy to answer because the platform goes off on nitpicking tangents crammed with unexpanded acronyms. My computer literally died while I was trying to translate the thing.

Rather than lend credibility to Mark Levin and other Republican partisans, the Texas LP could put its own platform on a diet and leverage podcasts to distribute verbatim audio recordings of its content–in Spanish and English. The national platform in Portuguese takes less than half an hour to listen to. That avenue of bilingual outreach is completely unavailable to the Kleptocracy parties, mired as they are in many words and many lies. There is a differentiating advantage to be had there.

Tejas, excuse me, Texas includes a great many voters who feel comfortable with Spanish. A terse, no-nonsense platform written in accordance with Strunk & White’s Elements of Style (Omit needless words!) is easy to translate into Spanish, French Canadian, and maybe even Navajo. But a rambling spray of legalese isn’t.

Four thousand, five hundred twelve words at George Orwell’s BBC standard rate of 150 words a minute does yield 30 minutes, but why so much specific and obscure jargon?  We need to attract candidates so folks can cast spoiler votes to inform the Kleptocracy what sort of things they need to repeal. The platform could be simpler and bring us more candidates is all I’m saying.

If you think clarity isn’t oversimplification, you might appreciate my legal translation and interpreting services.

Mentation and Malingering

Positive Christianity, Altruism, Duty

Painter of churches, Jesus and Madonnas honored

We imagine we understand malingering–at least until, upon reflection, the concept turns up surprises. Feigning illness or injury to avoid physical labor is the familiar meme. But what about feigning injury, outrage, condescension, pity, insanity or disbelief in order to avoid the necessity of thinking? “That can’t be right” is a wishful reply made by many a fool whose lunch tab added up to more cash than he carried. Other instances are not so trivial.

Mental malingering is the most popular form of self-deception engaged in by altruists of both the “left” and “right.”
Those that describe themselves as “conservative” commit thought-malingering no less assiduously others who, with equal smugness, describe themselves as “left-wing.”

Take the bell in the picture. No conservative can look at it and simultaneously realize that Adolf Hitler represented most of the voters in 98% Christian Germany. Yet every religious conservative defends at least half of Hitler’s 1920 National Socialist platform. Conservatives manage this by never reading the original, and imagining in its place some egotistical writings of a socialist atheist “madman.” Germany’s mystics engaged in the same self-deception. The fairly recent hagiography movie of Sophie Scholl (of The White Rose student protest group) injected gratuitous lines to depict Positive Christian National Socialists as virtually identical to Bolshevik atheists. Even the flyers for which these students were put to death specifically referred to Christian National Socialist Policies as “atheistic.” No religious conservative–German or American–can bear to admit that Adolf Hitler ran a christian religious conservative government complete with transfer payments from producers to non-producers and eugenics policies to build the “New Race” of Herbert Hoover’s inaugural speech..

Similarly, left wing socialists, communists and anti-industrial collectivists deny that Hitler was a socialist–a fact known to everyone on the planet before 1939.  But they do join mystical conservative bretheren in denying absolutely that there is anything altruistic about the National Socialist belief in “The Common Good Before the Individual Good.”
Looters of the bureaucratic persuasion swear hotly, loudly and vehemently that every communist government was “not really” socialist. This appeal to volume or carpet-biting is another form of malingering to avoid mentation.

The common ground both altruist factions share is the proof-by-insistence that there is something good about altruism and sacrifice. But to this day none have stepped forward to explicitly state what it is. What they do agree on, as a sort of corrolary Revelation or belief, is that the initiation of force must also be defended against all comers as the end-all Final Solution to all problems real or imaginary. What is clear–especially after demonstrations at Alamogordo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki–is that unsuperstitious science has retaliatory capabilities that have made the wholesale initiation of force as suicidal as its proponents have always wished it could be.

When in need of political or legal translations of the content of such things as treaties between nations, look me up.

The word comprehensive

The guy the Republicans hired to win the election likes two things: libertarianism and the word “comprehensive.”

The libertarian part is easy to understand. It was Trumps way of telling God’s Own Prohibitionists that he could hand them government jobs or hand them another beating–the same way Ross Perot got George Holy War Bush fired.

But my favorite Soviet website (we will Doonesbury you), recently took issue with the word comprehensive. After JFK negotiated the Limited Test Ban to keep strontium 90 out of children’s milk, communist intellectuals sought to puff comprehensive up into the entering wedge for unilaterally disarming the USA. That ran aground on the Second Amendment. So after the Soviet bloc collapsed like a Berlin Wall or US Embassy in Saigon, “comprehensive” went out of fashion. This graph shows the decline and fall of the word “comprehensive” before Trump.

Look into my eyes...

Go ahead, try it yourself

This we know from Wolfram Alpha, a collection of programmers who appreciate math AND language. The graph shows a falloff in stock (quotes, usage) for comprehensive dating from about the time the looters started mothballing their tens of thousands of fusion bombs after the failure of The Altrurian Experiment in the crumbling Soviet Empire. So, why is this important?

The current president got the nomination ten months after saying something nice about a burgeoning minor party. Four months later he was President and Libertarian Party stock (in votes) was up 328%. If comprehensive is welcomed back into the vernacular, its reformation glittering over its faults, that would suggest there is some truth to “master of hypnosis” theories for Trump being elected.

If it doesn’t, the fact would lend weight to the theory that infiltrators in the Democratic party platform committee threw the election by injecting the platform with pseudoscience depicting reliable electric power plants as a life-threatening plague. This was the way all US power generation facilities were depicted during the Brezhnev, Andropov, Chernenko, Gorbachev and Yanayev dictatorships. The 2016 Republican platform also broke ranks with Prohibition Party’s ecological nationalsocialism planks of 2016:

We advocate… subsidies for consumers wishing to change from fossil fuels to renewable domestic sources of energy.
We believe that climatic change is an existential threat to civilization.

The Gee Oh Pee urinalysis platform trashed carbon taxes, promised to toss the Paris Capitulation into the same dustbin as the Kyoto Proctocol. The platform protects power plants and fuel from fanatical fearmongers, and even improves transmission line infrastructure.

The Libertarian party platform is also in favor of access to energy. Here is the LP energy plank in its clear and unambiguous entirety:

While energy is needed to fuel a modern society, government should not be subsidizing any particular form of energy. We oppose all government control of energy pricing, allocation, and production.

Can you say Hockey Stick?

WANTED: Fisher-Pry least-squares curve fit for these burgeoning vote counts

But what of that hockey-stick growth in Libertarian spoiler votes? Did the LP suddenly become popular because a real-estate mesmerist admitted to liking libertarianism? Perhaps it was because the recycled Republican candidate the LP resorted to abandoned his 2012 promise to try to bring back the coathanger abortion laws struck down by the reincarnation of the 1972 LP birth control plank as the lead paragraph in the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. Is there a third hypothesis? Perhaps the American voter is discovering that the less you try to coerce others, the less others will respond in that particular kind.

Do you ever need simultaneous interpretation of a speech, or sight translation of a legal document?

Individualism vs. Socialism

This is a Letter to the Editor of Physics Today from during the Cold War, March of 1982. Background as a letter from another subscriber urging preemptive surrender to the USSR, which Petr Beckmann, on the Reason Board at the time, believed was the real purpose of all such defeatist whimpering. At that time I was a dues-paying member of John Hospers’ Libertarian Defense Caucus, not the regular LP.  Here’s the letter:

I’ve enjoyed reading the articles and letters addressing the topic of nuclear weapons in recent issues. There is, however, one point which has been conveniently ignored by both sides during the debate: the difference between the philosophic bases upon which the Soviet and American governments are based.
Capitalism is rooted in individualism, and is retaliatory in nature, as can be seen in our code of laws. Socialism is altruism applied to government; its collectivist and egalitarian aspects can be traced to that basic premise. All socialist states, whether communo-fascist or redistributionist, depend on the initiation of force to achieve their goals. This basic difference is generally omitted in the course of “scenario building,” and the result is that the conflict is viewed as though both nuclear powers had similar goals.

During the second World War, no American strategist would have considered the extermination of the Jews as a tactic and many were surprised when Germany’s National Socialist government embarked on that very program. Today we tend to think that the Soviet Socialist government would not target civilians because we ourselves see no strategic benefit in such a course. The fact is that we have different goals and different philosophies. The possibility that the Soviet state might regard us as the National Socialist state regarded the Jews cannot be dismissed by any who have compared the original documents on which those systems were built.

It is possible, therefore, that the option of surrender may no more exist for Americans than it did for the Jews during the last war.

Our best option seems to be to follow the advice of Edward Teller and Andrei Sakharov and increase our defenses to the point at which we can sustain a first strike and still defeat the aggressor. Any less of an effort will simply serve to reinforce the tendency to fire on warning and thus increase the possibility of an accidental war.
J. H. PHILLIPS 3/82 Austin, Texas
PHYSICS TODAY / MAY 1982 131

 

This letter was written 36 years ago this month. As I look around I still see many of the same things.

Many at the time urged surrender to the communist dictatorship whose policies they literally worshipped. Even this issue included a hand-wringing appeal from Italian “scientists.” Those “peace” appeals relied on a Pascal’s Wager form of intimidation and never (except for a letter in a preceding issue of Physics Today) advocated surrender to totalitarianism in so many words. Propagandists for looter statism simply blocked off all other alternatives as insane, misguided, ill-informed or unrealistic, and let the reader arrive at the only alternative left standing.

Those same people today urge totalitarian control of the economy and impoverishment of every aspect of live on the strength of the Millerite supposition that another trace gas (carbon dioxide, not freon) stands poised to wipe out humanity. The only country not required to give up a kilowatt-hour of electrical energy to please the Vichy Paris Accord proponents is itself a communist dictatorship. Search Google News Archives for members of Physicians for Social Responsibility, Union of Concerned Scientists, Stockholders for Corporate Responsibility, _X__ Anti-Pollution League, _X__ for Social Responsibility and you will find today’s CO2ercion advocates among the survivors. The phenomenon is a political 5th Column meme that worships slavery and death as alternatives to the delusions of Armageddon and Rapture that “the left” (correctly, in my view) attribute to “the right”. (The Libertarian theory of  non-aggression and individual rights is completely different from the European politics of 19th-Century political parties).

That same issue of Physics Today raised the question of whether a bolide impact might have–in a matter of hours–so completely changed the climate as to wipe out the Dinosaurs 65 million years ago. If such a danger arises again–and a look at the Moon clearly shows hundreds of thousands of such events–only an advanced energy-converting industrial civilization would stand a prayer of warding off or surviving such a  test of humanity’s competence to survive. This is the test the dinosaurs failed.

Co2ercion advocates have nothing to say about that proven scenario. The article on the Monte Carlo algorithm in that issue of Physics Today, incidentally, relates to a mathematical technique developed by designers of thermonuclear weapons (Nicholas Metropolis, John von Neumann and Stanislau Ulam). The purpose of those weapons was to defeat National Socialist Germany and their Japanese allies in the 1940s.

Bolide impact is the “Alvarez Theory” because geologist Walter Alvarez asked his physicist father Luis why the clay boundary? Luis Alvarez designed the geodesic detonation cord for the plutonium bombs used at Alamogordo and Nagasaki. These competent people whose technology defeated National Socialism and held off International Socialism until it rotted and collapsed are the ones whose ideas make sense to me. The Fifth Columnists still recite the exact same totalitarian formulas and slogans, and care nothing for measurement data, definitions or conceptual clarity. They are the villains in Atlas Shrugged.

The Libertarian Party had by 1982 already seen to the repeal of cruel, Medieval laws against birth control, and provided the philosophical and ethical arguments that toppled totalitarian parasitism. I’m proud to be a Libertarian Party member and supporter, and hope we can count on your spoiler vote to repeal another mess of really cruel and unusual laws the kleptocracy and its lobbyists use to eat out our substance. That’s winning!

Freeze, freon or freedom?

FREEZE… AND SURRENDER!

Erde Politische Arbeiterpartei

Huxley conditioning, not Orwellian brainwashing

Only America was “morally” required to violate its Second Amendment, disarm and surrender to Soviet Altruria before and during the 1980s. The Union of Confused Scientists, Physicians for Socialist Responsibility, Freeze advocates, those same pro-socialist, fifth-column infiltrators soon claimed penguins would roast unless freon were banned. Now that real freon is banned and air conditioners are failing as a consequence, they swear the world is heating up. Yet thermometers say the opposite. Why?

Remember the War on Freon? This was based on the superstition that humans–8/9 of whom live in the climactically different northern hemisphere–are to blame for a thinner ozone layer hovering over a constantly-erupting volcano in the southern hemisphere–where only 11% of humanity lives. The volcano, Mt Erebus, spews chlorine into the atmosphere near the south pole, and has done so for over a million years. Bozos and political scientists report no such hole at the pole nearest where 89% of industrial humanity lives and works. (Oddly enough, there is no such volcano at the North Pole either).

Freon–the coolant that replaced poisonous refrigerator gases fatal to housewives in the 1930s–was sacrificed on the Congressional Altar of the lobbyists and Volcano Gods in Crash year 1987. Freon was made a quasi-illegal controlled substance, regulated by force and priced out of reach. Real freon was replaced with an inferior coolant requiring much higher pressures. Home and auto air conditioners running the new coolant nobody would buy willingly, promptly began failing.

The manly and honest response is to look at ozone readings taken before and after the War on Freon. Those two Octobers–during the 1987 Crash and in just before Americans voted against banning energy in 2016–show no appreciable change to the ozone layer. But go ahead and view time-lapse videos and compare other years. But facts don’t matter, hence every man, woman and child in America–and in the world that once regarded Americans as scientific–has been forced at gunpoint to buy the clumsy substitute. Worse: all are now threatened with a tax on air and an additional ban on electric power stations by the same looter ideologues.

Neither the Democratic (or CPUSA) nor Republican (or Prohibition) parties have ever admitted error, and their looters in the House and Senate won’t either. Enter the tangled web of global warming deceit to cover up the discomfort you feel as electric bills rise and your air conditioner fails expensively. If you want an alternative that is non-totalitarian you can make your preference felt by voting Libertarian.

By deliberately altering or cherrypicking NOAA thermometer records to make the past appear cooler and the present warmer, the temperature trend reverses the sign of its slope. This handily provides Congress with an alibi for the failure-prone AC units it sold us at gunpoint because of the War on Freon hysteria. As icing on the let-’em-eat-cake, a whole new hobgoblin has been created from which the ignorant and superstitious now clamor to be led to safety. The hobgoblin, designed by the same Anti-Industrial-Revolution Luddites, is Global Warming–the official Staat religion of Econazi Germany. The icing? Global Warming hysteria makes real cooling climate change feel like warming because your air conditioning is failing and costing you a fortune!

Do you ever need a translator able to graph charts and perform temperature conversions?
