U.S. Eugenics Enforcement Administration Interpreter Charged with Disclosing Investigation to Stock Exchange Jewry
U.S. Department of Injustice (DC) (02/17/41)

Asset-forfeiture sharing by

A Yiddish interpreter who worked for the U.S. Drogenbekämpfung Ewige Arbeiterpartei (DEA) has been charged with intentionally disclosing a criminal investigation and a court-ordered wiretap to the target of the investigation.

The defendant, Anne Frank, made her initial appearance in U.S. District Court in San Jose, California. Frank is charged with one count of unlawful disclosure of electronic surveillance. If convicted, she faces up to five years in prison, a $250,000 fine, then having her head shaved and being led on a leash past True Christian™ congregants of the Landover Baptist Church to the guillotine.(link)

Frank provided interpreting services to the Office of the Eugenics Czar and was assigned as the lead hidden microphone snooping monitor and Yiddish interpreter for a court-ordered wiretap in an investigation into an underground railroad smuggling thought-criminals out of the Republic.

Credere, Obbedire, Combattere!

While monitoring calls in February and March 1940, Frank allegedly recognized an unperson, identified in court documents as “Anti-Christian 2,” whom she knew from the unperson’s sinful relationship with another collaborator. Gestapo agents also posted the unperson’s wanted poster in the snooping room to which Frank was assigned.

Prosecutors said Frank failed to inform Information Retrieval and Enhanced Interrogation about her knowledge of the unperson as required by her orders. Instead, Frank warned her friend that the target’s calls were being intercepted and the DEA had a photo of the individual. The friend then tipped off the target, who discarded wiretapped cellphones and delayed the investigation.

“We trusted Anne Frank to keep her mouth shut,” said U.S. People’s Court Prosecutor Roland Friesler in a statement. “Eugenic Law enforcement needs confidentiality to protect the State from the innocent and the guilty. We accuse Anne Frank of violating that trust.”

“Releasing government secrets can have devastating consequences. Not only does it enable an unperson to escape, often beyond recapture, but, more importantly, it also endangers the lives of Gestapo and SS officers assigned to the investigation,” said Drogenbekämpfung Ewige Arbeiterpartei Special Agent in Charge Adolf Eichmann. “In instances such as these, we will see to it that the Eugenics Czar’s schedule is obeyed without hesitation.”

Kaiser Trump’s Pawns Bewildered

Blindsided by NARAL, Republican Girl-Bulliers baffled, confused, disoriented, ungoodthinkful as in 1919 (link)

MOST GERMANS NOW UNBALANCED – Swiss Back from Leipzig Fair Report 90% Mentally Twisted – ARE BEWILDERED BY CHANGES – Declare Everything Is in Disorder and Streets Are Lined with Begging Soldiers and Civilians – Behave like Children – Berne – A number of Swiss merchants, who for years past have regularly attended the famous Leipzig fair, have now just returned, hardly able to express their amazement at what they saw there. It was not that there was nothing to interest them at the fair, but that while they were in Germany they could hardly believe that they were not in some other country, they did not quite know which. The merchants, manufacturers and others at the fair, with whom they had to deal, seem to be mentally unbalanced.
“Ninety percent of the people with whom I had to deal,” said one merchant, “really did not know what they were about. In visiting the various exhibits in Leipzig I would give an order for something. I would tell the man in charge that I would take, say, 500 gross of a certain article, No. 106. I would write the number down myself, and then of course I expected him to write it down too. Then I would order something else, and by the time I had finished giving my orders I would ask to compare my notes with his. Then, to my great astonishment, I would find he had either not written down the orders at all, or had written them down all wrong.
Mental Confusion.
“At first I thought I had merely to do with the careless individual, but afterwards I found that nine out of 10 persons were in just the same state of mental confusion. I then talked to some of the other Swiss who were visiting the fair and found that they had had similar experiences. Once I lost patience and spoke very sharply to one man, whereupon he simply broke down and said he was sorry but he had been four years in the trenches of that he was no longer capable of doing his work as he did it before the war.”
Judging by all that these Swiss merchants observed in Germany, this mental weakness and incapacity is affecting not only men who have been a long time in the trenches, but also civilians – women who were at home and men who, for one reason or another, were never at the front. Some Germans known to these merchants before the war as shrewd, energetic, capable business men, now, they say, talk like children, as if they knew nothing whatever of the outside world or what has been taking place during the last four or five years.
In short, the German merchants seem completely dazed, bewildered and confused at present and do not know what they are doing.
What particularly struck all these Swiss merchants who have known Germany for many years past, was the lack of orderliness everywhere, not merely at the Leipzig fair but in the streets – a change for the worse which is commented upon now by all visitors to Germany. In the halls of the great Fair, which, before the war used to be as neat as the proverbial new pin, disorder and even dirt are everywhere.
The streets leading to the Leipzig fair word this year lined with wounded, crippled and blinded soldiers, selling postcards, boot laces and all manner of other trifles, or playing barrel organs with their military caps on the ground before them for people to throw anything they could afford. And this in a country where mendicants never used to be tolerated.
Act like Children.
[Each visitor to?] the Leipzig fair this year was allowed by the government to take with him 22 pounds of provisions. One with whom I talked took with him 5 pounds of chocolate, knowing what a precious gift it would be to some of his old acquaintances. In visiting one of the leading manufacturers he presented three of his daughters with half a pound each. The girls grasped him by the hand, with tears in their eyes. “We haven’t seen anything like it for years,” they said. “It will make us well.”
One evening this Swiss merchant, with two others, was sitting in one of the best restaurants in Leipzig when a lad walked around the tables offering postcards and matches for sale. He was very sickly looking, and the Swiss merchant put his hand in his coat pocket, took out a block of chocolate (about half a pound) and handed it to him. Immediately all the guests in the restaurant got up and surrounded the lad, gazing with amazement at the chocolate. Some of them asked the Swiss how he managed to get it.
Even in the restaurant, he said, the people who collected around the boy with the chocolate behaved like children. All this points to what is now being more and more clearly recognized – that the war and its conditions have caused a more or less abnormal mental state in the case of many persons.

First came Phyllis Schlafly: Agnew busted, Nixon impeached, Carter elected,
now TWO MORE Harridans against individual rights, plus Lindsey–and guess what?

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene Continues Her Mission To END Abortion in America By Cosponsoring Critical Anti-Choice Legislation

Trumpistas sued for billions, Trump beaten, Biden elected…
all thanks to two more turncoat Harridans eager to force women to labor at gunpoint.

January 15, 2021 This Press Release content below was copied and pasted verbatim from her Anti-Life Trumpista website 03FEB2021 for posting by Libertariantranslator and Expatriotas. Observe that God’s Own Prohibitionists have become uncomfortably like the Army of God in their dedication to the initiation of force against individuals. Under under color of enforcement of imagined political “rights” of non-individuals, they again seek to intrude government compulsion inside of individual women and to ban all birth control.(link)  Let this be a warning to anyone who imagines that Republican National Socialism is less dangerous to individual rights than the East German Communism the Democratic Party is currently emulating.(link)

Washington D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene continued her mission to end abortion in America by becoming an original cosponsor to Rep. Alex Mooney’s Life at Conception Act (H.R. 616) and Rep. Ann Wagner’s Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962). 

Congresswoman Greene announced her support of this life saving legislation that brings our nation closer to ending abortion:

“My number one priority is to end the genocide of abortion. Killing a baby in the womb is the worst lie sold to women and it doesn’t solve problems, nor is it women’s ‘healthcare.’

Abortion is the most vile evil committed in America. I’m proud to cosponsor the Life at Conception Act which grants rights to babies at the moment they are conceived, and the Born Alive Protection Act, that will protect innocent lives who miraculously escape death.Becoming an original cosponsor to these vital pieces of legislation is just the beginning of my mission to end abortion in America. More powerful pro-life legislation is on the way.”

The Life at Conception Act (H.R. 616):· Declares and codifies that each human being is guaranteed the right to life under the U.S. Constitution at all stages of life.

The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962):·  Establishes pro-life standards for the degree of care a health care practitioner must exercise in the event a child is born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion.·  Imposes legal repercussions to anyone who intentionally kills or attempts to kill a child born alive after an abortion. ·  Requires the health care practitioner who is present to exercise the same degree of care to a child born alive in the same gestational age to a hospital. ·  Gives women who undergo or attempt an abortion the right to file a civil action for damages against an individual who violated this bill.
*** End of harridan tirade.

There is no plumbing the mystical capacity to deliberately believe in anything from Reefer Madness to Domino Theories to unkillable miracle Prophets to Satanic Conspiracies against racial purity or Mom and Apple Pie. Prohibitionist eugenics enabled a tiny party with 1.4% of the spoiler vote to impress enough yokels to amend the Constitution and make beer a felony. Confiscatory enforcement toppled the fractional-reserve banking system and caused the Great Depression. Republicans blamed mystical predetermination in the form of a “business cycle” to explain away every recession–1907, 1970-1, except the one following the Clinton Crash. The Prohibition Party has controlled the GOP since 1928, yet Republicans sneer at the law-changing clout of Libertarian spoiler votes.(link) They have short memories, and evidently do not recall the 19th Amendment… the one whereby women get to vote!

Ayn Rand, 1976: “I urge you, as emphatically as I can, not to support the candidacy of Ronald Reagan. I urge you not to work for or advocate his nomination, and not to vote for him. My reasons are as follows: Mr. Reagan is not a champion of capitalism, but a conservative in the worst sense of that word—i.e., an advocate of a mixed economy with government controls slanted in favor of business rather than labor (which, philosophically, is as untenable a position as one could choose—see Fred Kinnan in Atlas Shrugged, pp. 541-2). This description applies in various degrees to most Republican politicians, but most of them preserve some respect for the rights of the individual. Mr. Reagan does not: he opposes the right to abortion.”

Republicans then and now

Pope endorses 24-hour work shifts

Republican exploitation was fun back then. Plant leaves were legal.(link)

I found the above item in the Meriden Daily Republican for Saturday, December 31, 1878. That was the year the Infallible Pope Leo, appreciative fan of Vin Mariani,  issued a papal bull decrying the cults formed by “semi-barbarian men calling themselves socialists, communists or nihilists…” (link) A free-trade agreement was entered into with the Samoan Islands, silver dollars were coined as legal tender and greenbacks were kept in circulation to please the Grangers and to simplify eventual resumption of the gold standard. 

There had been some ruffled feathers over dry fanatic Rutherford Hayes having been declared winner in 1876 with 165 electoral votes to Samuel Tilden’s 184.  The difference required a swap of 20 electoral votes from Southern States for withdrawal of federal troops so that ku-klux “Redeemers” could make damn good and sure Black voters were suppressed, and kept from voting against Democrats.(link) Four years of “Lemonade Lucy” Hayes refusing to serve alcohol at the Executive Mansion were enough.(link) Hayes was succeeded by Arthur Garfield who was quickly shot by a fellow Republican who had not been awarded “his” hoped-for political sinecure.(link) Observe that in 2016, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson got more votes than either of these Reconstruction-era candidates.(link)

Amid the fallout from crony-assassinations and Jim Crow election-stealing, Democrat Grover Cleveland was elected, defeated by another religious prohibiton fanatic, then reelected despite voter suppression on a platform to do away with “sumptuary laws which vex the citizen and interfere with individual liberty.” (link) Oddly enough, the silver glut and monetary crisis so stressed agrarian cheap-money parties as to bring a surge in neo-communist electoral votes. Cleveland’s second term was so awash in post-Republican financial problems and socialist orators that it stood by as Congress approved a Communist Manifesto Income Tax in 1894.(link)

The banking collapse was so widespread that Supreme Court Justices struck down that Income Tax and saved enough banks to cash their own tax-free paychecks. So ended the first Republican war on enjoyable drugs, and the closest thing to a libertarian Administration since the Jefferson and Jackson Administrations. Communist anarchist assassins and meddlesome coercive prohibitionists rapidly proliferated in These States and in the effete mystical mercantilist monarchies of the Old World, and communist income taxes proliferated apace.(link) World War I soon followed.(link

Prohibition and spoiler votes

1922-3 no deposits till after nullification of dry laws

US v Sullivan, 1927, income tax looting causes slow, steady withdrawals

Prohibition–the constitutional product of the shotgun wedding of fanatical mysticism, socialist controls and eugenics theories–became reality and a nightmare all at once on the night of January 16th, 1920. Socialist candidate Eugene Debs got nearly a million votes in the showdown between the Dems (who got us into WW1) and God’s Own Prohibitionists (who insisted we stay in the War on Beer). Why? Because in 1916 Debs had said “There is too much prohibition.” 

German stocks crash as heroin export income taxable

Germany exported heroin and had U.S. plants in the 1920s

When the economy collapsed after 6 months of wartime prohibition plus 1 month of Constitutional prohibition, membership in communist organizations promptly doubled. But the Kleptocracy ignored reality in 1920-1923. Prosecutor Willebrandt didn’t, and got the Supreme Court to squelch the 4th and 5th Amendments and declare evidence from tax returns admissible for prohibition and evasion liability in mid-May of 1927. German stocks immediately went sour. Neither entrenched party published a repeal or modification plank, and in 1928, Dry Hope Hoover beat Whiskey Al Smith 5 to 1. The small looter parties were obviously no help to freedom–their platforms called for coercion. 

The Increased Penalties Act foisted onto Hoover destroyed the economy when ex-prosecutor Willebrandt (yes, the same lady) explained in over 20 nationally syndicated papers how income tax asset forfeiture would be used to enforce Prohibition laws. Federal Reserve bank balances also began dropping as soon as Willebrandt got the Supreme Court to scrap the Bill of Rights and use the income tax–copied from Karl’s Manifesto of 1848–to enforce prohibition. 

No surprise here. The addition of that same communist manifesto plank to a tariff bill in 1894–in violation of the Constitutional prohibition of capitation taxes–so completely destroyed the economy that the Supreme Court had to strike it down the following year in order to have banks at which to cash their own paychecks. When was the last time you saw or hear tell of this partially concealed newspaper story?

Druggan, Lake Indicted by U.S. as Tax Dodgers 14MAR1928–Markets panic

Moreover, the income-tax-as-bludgeon decision in US v Sullivan immediately coincided with a German bourse crash, while French stock exchanges also began falling for years to come. Markets went haywire when Druggan and Lake were grabbed by Internal Revenuers mid-March, 1928. The Liberal Party formed in 1930, drew up a wet plank which the Dems accepted with tears of gratitude, then won five consecutive elections while battling the National Socialist government Hoover’s 1931 Moratorium foisted onto Germany.

The outcome of that election was FDR beat Dry Hope Hoover 11 to 1, but the collapsing economy–officially unexplained–had opened the floodgates increasing communist party growth in These United States by a factor of ten by the time Ayn Rand formulated the Non-Aggression Agreement. 

Only by keeping the American people confused about Prohibition and The Crash have the subsidized media managed to keep voters mesmerized by subsidized Republicans who deny being fascist and subsidized Democrats who deny being communist. Then again, that’s what the Nixon law of 1971 pays them to do. Understanding how these looters wreck your retirement savings, then voting Libertarian to let them know the jig is up; that’s the road to recovery. Doing the right thing–using your leveraged LP spoiler vote to change bad laws–is winning. It’s your decision.

Today’s guest repost is by Austin’s Constitutional Scholar Jon Roland,

U.S. Supreme Court: Issues with current contenders

Unenumerated rights

The first issue is presented by the statement by nominee appointee Brett  Cavanaugh in his acceptance speech, that he would not find rights not explicitly recognized in the main Constitution.. This has been an issue since the nomination of Robert Bork, who considered the Ninth Amendment, which calls for the nondisparagement of rights that are not “enumerated” (made explicit) somewhere in the Constitution, as amended, to be an “ink blot”. There is strong opposition to Supreme Court judges doing that, especially from so-called “conservatives”, who don’t understand that constitutional rights are all “immunities”, restrictions on the powers of government. They are not “privileges” to receive a sufficient amount of public resources, such as for education, healthcare, elder support, or any other objects of public subsidies.

Interestingly, in the case of Roe v. Wade, the Fifth Circuit decided that a “right to an abortion” was a Ninth Amendment right of a woman  “to choose whether to have children”, which by the 14th Amendment, was “incorporated” for the states. This presented the Supreme Court with an apparent problem,  because there was opposition to funding unenumerated rights in the Senate. The Fifth Circuit found a Ninth Amendment “right  to choose whether to have children”. So the SC tried to sustain the Fifth Circuit without embracing the Ninth Amendment. The result was an incoherent opinion. There was no way to avoid the Ninth Amendment.

It would perhaps too much to expect a nominee to venture into an extended discussion of what a “right” is, and what it is not. It is awkward to say “I will not find a ‘right’ to a sufficient amount of a public resource.” That is too complicated for most senators. So the candidate denies he will try to find any “unenumerated” rights. That is somewhat disingenuous, but the issue needs to be discussed.


Republicans, Dixiecrats, No Libertarian Party!

When “life” begins

One of the potential nominees, Amy Barrett, has been reported to have stated that human “life” begins at conception. That is a misstatement of the issue in Roe v. Wade. which in its essence was not about “life” but about “personhood” because “Rights (immunities)” attach to “persons”, (roles in court), not to “life”, despite what the Declaration of Independence says. (That is why some activists have sought to move the commencement of “personhood” back to conception. That would be a mistake. We cannot allow each state to redefine “personhood”, because if we did, a state could define some people to be nonpersons, without rights. So there has to be a uniform definition across all states if the protections of the Constitution are not to be meaningless. That is the basis for finding the right to be incorporated under the Ninth Amendment, as the Fifth Circuit did.

So when does “life” begin?

Not at conception. Each individual is the latest in an unbroken chain of life that goes back to at least the point when the first single-celled organism became a multi-celled animal, which occurred about 650 million years ago, during the pre-Cambrian era, when the surface of the Earth was covered with ice (“snowball Earth”) and there was only one continent, Rodinia. We are all descended from that multi-celled organism. That is when “life” began.

So when does “personhood” begin?

This was declared by the jurist Edward Coke in the 15th century, and later restated by legal scholar William Blackstone, in the early 18th century, who provided most of the definitions for terms used in the U.S. Constitution. They held that “personhood” begins at natural birth, or induced natural birth (they had Cesarean sections in those days). Some of the states later found that personhood began with baptism, entry of a name in church records, or even later. Not at “conception”, the date of which could not have been defined with any precision in those days, or even now.

Consider what would happen if we defined “personhood” to begin at conception? It would make every fetus the ward of a court, with the court having power to supervise the pregnancy. It could order the woman to continue a pregnancy, and not terminate it, under penalty of law. That would be forced pregnancy. Do we want that? Every pregnant woman chained to a bed. Anyone see the play “A Handmaid’s Tale”. Good way to stop everyone from having sex.

Forcing women into involuntary servitude and labor webcomic 2 awe

Need for uniformity

Incorporation of a Ninth Amendment right is required by the need to have a uniform definition of “personhood” (legal role) across all jurisdiction, since constitutional rights attach to “persons” and not just to “citizens” or “life”.  If states could define personhood, they could deprive anyone of rights by defining him to be a “nonperson”. Thus a state could find that Blacks are not persons as a way to deprive them of their liberty.

Economic Collapse, July 1930

Prohibition caused Depression

Chicago Tribune 17NOV1930

The stock market crash of 1929 marked the realization that prohibition laws would soon destroy the US economy and banking system. By mid-1930, financial collapse was so well underway that the old prohibition enforcement districts were redrawn to conform closely to existing Federal Reserve districts. This change took effect on July 1, 1930, the month Cook County Assessor Gene G. Oliver was convicted of tax evasion and sentenced to 18 months in prison and fined $12,500 by Judge Woodward in Chicago.

Here is a breakdown of the districts.

The transfer of the prohibition enforcement activity from the Treasury Department to the Department of Justice under the Williamson Act took place on July 1, 1930, under the Bureau of Industrial Alcohol in the Treasury Department, retained the duty of issuing permits for the manufacture and use of alcohol and other intoxicating liquor for non-beverage purposes, and of supervising the activities of the permitees.  The 27 prohibition districts hitherto existing were rearranged into 12 new districts, with boundaries corresponding in some measure with the 10 judicial circuits.  (Misdirection! The new prohibition districts were a nearly perfect fit to the Federal Reserve Districts–tr)

1. Boston: Maine, N. Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, R. Island, Connecticut
2. New York: New York State and Porto Rico
3. Philadelphia: New Jersey; Pennsylvania, Delaware
4. Richmond: Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, N. Carolina, South Carolina, DC.
5. New Orleans: Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas.
6. Cincinnati: Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee
7. Chicago: Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin.
8. St. Paul: Minnesota, N. Dakota, S. Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska.
9. Kansas City: Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma.
10. Denver: Arizona, Colorado, N. Mexico, Utah, Wyoming.
11. San Francisco: California, Nevada, Hawaii.
12. Seattle: Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, Alaska.

That same day, the Bank of Winter Park, Florida, closed its doors. As prohibition asset-forfeiture confiscations continued, many other banks would close. The Liberal Party, formed in 1930, published a plank in 1931 calling for the repeal of blue laws and the Prohibition Amendment. The Democratic Party copied this plank in the summer of 1932–in the middle of a major banking panic–and went on to win the election in November, plus four more.

That is an advance demonstration of the law-changing clout of libertarian party spoiler votes. By the time Franklin D. Roosevelt was sworn in as president in March of 1933, nearly every bank in the nation had already closed its doors. After 1928, no Republican was elected until the Eisenhower-Nixon campaign brought German National Socialism to America.
