Patriot Act, 1913

First the Balkans, now U.S.-occupied Afghanistan!

See the original article…

Remember Serbia? It was Servia back when communist youths shot European politicians practically every month before World War One. But war in the Balkans did not begin in 1914. Only when China overthrew its imperial government in 1911 and halted British and German dumping of narcotics did the price glut destabilize prices, then politics, in that opium-farming region. That particular outbreak of European opium wars began in 1911. Newspapers at the time juxtaposed related articles and let readers draw their own correlations and conclusions.

Prohibition linked to War

Decriminalization instead of legalization circumvents government dependence on addictive dope

Here is a sample of an Enabling Act or Patriot Act enacted by the Serbian government. This was over a year before another communist youth shot yet another feather-bedecked Germanic militarist as ratifying signatures slowly accumulated on the Hague anti-opium convention.

Article 1. The police authorities are authorized, in case of a deficiency in the regular organization for securing the liberty and security of persons and property, to ask military commander for the troops necessary for the maintenance of order and tranquillity. The military commander is bound to comply immediately with these demands, and the police is bound to inform the Minister of the Interior of them.

Article 2. Any attempt at rebellion against the public powers is punishable by five years’ penal servitude.

The decision of the police authorities, published in the respective communes, is proof of the commission of crime.

If the rebel refuses to give himself up as prisoner within ten days from such publication, he may be put to death by any public or military officer.

Article 3. Any person accused of rebellion in terms of the police decision and who commits any crime shall be punished with death.
If the accused person himself gives himself up as a prisoner into the hands of authorities, the death penalty shall be commuted to penal servitude for ten or years, always provided that the commutation is approved by the tribunal.

Article 4. Where several cases of rebellion occur in a commune and the rebels do not return to their homes within ten days from the police notice, the authorities have the right of deporting their families whithersoever they may find convenient.
Likewise the inhabitants of the houses in which armed persons or criminals in general are found concealed, shall be deported.
The heads of the police shall transmit to the Prefecture a report on the deportation procedure, which is to be put in force immediately.
The Minister of the Interior shall, if he think desirable, rescind deportation measures.

Article 5. Any person deported by an order of the Prefecture who shall return to original domicile without the authorization of the Minister of the Interior shall be punished by three years’ imprisonment.

Article 6. If in any commune or any canton the maintenance of security demands the sending of troops, the maintenance of the latter shall be charged to the commune or the canton. In such a case the Prefect is to be notified.
If order is restored after a brief interval and the culprits taken, the Minister of the Interior may refund such expenses to the canton or the commune.
The Minister may act in this way as often as he may think desirable.

Article 7. Any person found carrying arms who has not in his possession a from the police or from the Prefect, or who shall hide arms in his house or elsewhere shall be condemned to a penalty varying from three months’ imprisonment to five years’ penal servitude.
Anyone selling arms or ammunition without a police permit shall be liable to the same penalty.

… and so on for another two pages. The lesson here is that economic dislocation–such as resulted from the George Bush Jr. asset-forfeiture crash or the religious terrorism the Bush Dynasty invited by the entangling shelling and bombing former Ottoman territory–results in even grosser initiation of force in a mystically mixed economy.

The initiation of harmful and deadly force sets in motion a feedback loop with forced oscillations. Voting Libertarian is the only effective way to counter these buildups, as the Kleptocracy parties are well aware. Why? Because LP.org candidates and partisans oppose the initiation of force for political or social reasons. No initiation of force means there is no pretext for violent retaliation.

Looter Media Attacks

Intellectuals of the looter persuasion are quoting Eric Trump as if their cynicism could modify his observation:

“That’s been the playbook in our government for so long: distract, disrupt, hurt, bash, defame, do whatever you can for your own political gain. It’s sad that we don’t have more morals or character or whatever it is.” —Eric Trump

The rough-and-tumble at issue became serious because just as the Libertarian Party was forming, Nixon’s National Socialist Congress passed the Anti-Libertarian Campaign Bribery law of 1971.  Two decades later,  a non-Kleptocracy candidate had this to say about the way the Altruist Broadcasting Corporation, Nationalsocialist Broadcasting Corporation and Communist Broadcasting Service (the dirty tricks guys) were attacking him in October of 1992:

Yes Ross Perot helped the entrenched looter kleptocracy divert voters away from the Libertarian Party. He was repaid in government cash subsidies taken out of the pockets of many honest working people who would rather not coerce anyone.  Perot reinforced the superstitious ignorance that caused These States to export brutal prohibitionism to South America, confident that would destroy the economies of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Bolivia while setting up a fascist dictatorship in Peru. It is true that Reagan Administration manipulation of prohibition and tax laws did wreck a prohibition-created source of cash then fueling communist expansion. But the process corrupted the entire Mexican government into a huge 1930s Chicago.

Spoiler votes cast for Ross Perot unfrocked the more fanatical zealots the way The Liberal Party platform had in 1932. Perot’s spoiler votes reversed deficit spending and led to a surplus just as George Wallace spoiler votes turned Republicans into ku-klux Dixiecrats before the election subsidies law. The Clinton years were prosperous thanks mostly to the policy changes caused by Ross Perot spoiler votes. The looter press, naturally, thanked The Kleptocracy.

So yes, Eric Trump, you observe correctly, and you can do something to improve the situation. Vote Libertarian in the mid-term elections. Tell fake media that the Nixon Media Subsidies to favor the entrenched parties have polluted democracy. Come clean, follow Dad’s good example and say: “Libertarianism? I like it!” The LP platform, the one that got your Dad the nomination, takes less than half an hour to read. Borrowing our energy and Second Amendment planks landed you in the White House. I’m hoping I can count on your vote NOT as a token of appreciation. We both want back the cleaner elections we had before Richard Nixon altered the tax code to subsidize the initiation of force and undermine American morality.

“I like it. A lot of good points…” Those words guaranteed that the desperate, destitute and dishonest Gee Oh Pee urinalysis party would nominate Donald ten months later. That got Republicans government jobs, paychecks–and opportunities to have younger men violently put to death on both sides of the planet.  Three will get you five that that looter cartoonist will not quote your mention of the LP on his mudline fed by subsidized media pets.

The Underground Economy

callrate03_1929

In the absence of economic freedom, the visible economy rests upon the foundations of an underground economy.

Chapter 44

Call Money Rates

            It was against this background that call money rates jumped to 12% during the first week of March. This happened after Dr. Kenneth Phillips signed an affidavit stating that his patient Al Capone was too ill to answer a March 6 grand jury summons for questioning on January’s Chicago Heights raids. That same day, Arnold Rothstein’s old bodyguard, Thomas “Fatty” Walsh was killed at the Miami Biltmore.[1] Rothstein’s stockbroker friend George Graham Rice, already on trial since January for stock fraud was indicted March 8 for income tax evasion—for which his attorney, former judge Rockwood, was already headed for prison.[2]

President Hoover unexpectedly announced that his planned Commission on Law Enforcement would look at all laws, not just prohibition of narcotics and alcohol.[3] President Hoover enjoyed lunch with Texas’ driest Senator, Morris Sheppard. Also invited was New York Representative Hamilton Fish Jr.—perhaps the most active pusher for Draconian narcotics legislation.

Call rates remained stable at 6% as Hoover announced March 12 that no further oil leases on government land would be forthcoming in the aftermath of the Teapot Dome scandal. This was the day Al Capone had been rescheduled to appear before the grand jury and didn’t.[4] Then a former Ohio State Treasurer was convicted March 13 of conspiracy to bribe a federal officer. Investigation into the murder of Rothstein associate Thomas “Fatty” Walsh, continued, and Rothstein’s good buddy Sidney Stajer was finally true-billed on a narcotics violation. The Stajer arrest had been kept out of the newspapers for eight months, and even now newspapers resorted to misspelling his name. Brewer John J. Dunn, and four others were indicted for income tax evasion, and call rates resumed their steady climb through March 19.[5]

After a meeting with Attorney General William Mitchell, Hoover assured the press he did not plan any dramatic prohibition raids, but did intend to work inexorably “week by week, year by year, as rapidly as possible, to build up the enforcement of the laws of the United States, whether they relate to prohibition or narcotics or any other subject.” Newsmen who had heard the President solemnly assure farm representatives back in January that the special session would be called for the benefit of agriculture, were puzzled when Mr. Hoover added that it was “for this purpose in large degree that I called the extra session of Congress.” Prohibition and narcotics laws were enforced by US Treasury agents, and “any other subject” simply had to include the income tax law.[6]

By now there was a dawning suspicion that by “certain agricultural commodities” Hoover really meant sugar and possibly opium. As Secretary of Commerce Hoover was paid to monitor the recent increases in the domestic corn and beet sugar markets. Of course the former Food Czar of wartime prohibition could certainly guess the purpose of all that yeast. Hoover’s strategy appears to have been twofold: one side of the pincer movement was to enact as prohibitive a tariff on sugar as possible. With supplies from abroad thus curtailed, the job of cracking down on domestic sugar and yeast producers—throttling off moonshine liquor at the source—would be easier. All of this depended on Congress promptly and obediently passing the tariff revisions to Hoover’s specifications. Hoover repeated his intentions in his April 16 message to Congress, again with no hint that he was concerned with the sugar rates and little else.[7]

Hoover had another meeting March 19—this one with Commissioner Doran and Levi G. Nutt of the narcotics section. Article 22 of the League’s Geneva Opium Convention of 1925 required treaty nations to turn in statistics on narcotic and drug production, manufactures, consumption and stocks before the end of March each year. It is a safe bet this information was studied by major participants in narcotics production, traffic and enforcement.

The following day brought the filing of opinions in the Illinois Alcohol case, along with the issuance of 33 subpoenas. That same day Al Capone finally appeared before the federal grand jury at Chicago eight days late. The Federal Reserve Board—by now caught between hostile Congressmen and increasing brokers’ loans—was also in a meeting nervously fretted over by brokers and bankers. Just as nervously fretted over were the additional 17 subpoenas issued March 21 and 22 in connection with the Illinois Alcohol case, bringing the total to 51 in three days.[8] But other meetings on the high seas and in an Aurora, Illinois home carried more explosive portent.
