Road to Crashdom

Law Bites Lawmaker!

Prohibitionist hypocrisy original article (link)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Why not delve into the failure of Prohibitionism that caused the 1929 Crash? Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929 does exactly that, matching newspaper accounts against stock market reactions and competing theories. It is live on Amazon Kindle for the price of a pint.

Death to Kingpins

God’s Own Prohibitionists want the death sentence for enjoyable drug kingpins…

Just not THIS one.

“And for the drug kingpins: the death penalty.” These are the words of the president–not of some South American military junta–but of  the United States of America on September 5, 1989. Isolated incident? GOP president George Holy War Bush made similar declarations on nearly half a dozen occasions, all recorded in his Presidential Papers. But similar assertions were made my President Clinton October 6, 1996, on September 16 & 24th and bragging November 2, and other occasions. Not to be outdone, George Waffen Bush declared in favor of extermination camp treatment–not only for hemp kingpins–but also for cop-killers other than himself. **

This junior George also repeated the error committed by fellow Republican prohibitionist Herbert Clark Hoover in 1933. He declared asset-forfeiture open season on anything that could be confiscated, so long as someone with a badge and a gun imagined “in good faith” he could get away with it. Herbert Hoover’s use of taxes for enforcement shut down every bank in America before he left office. Congress, Bush Daddy & Reagan wrecked the economy the same way in 1987-92. The George Waffen Bush version of the fiasco in 2007 coincided with subprime mortgage rate resets on a large fraction of homes police were avidly confiscating because someone “thought he smelled grass.”

The Obama administration resorted to having Hillary Clinton export Anti-Money “Laundering” legislation through the United Nations. Throwing other nations under the bus that way made it possible for American traders to short their currency and securities as soon as those countries’ economies collapsed under the weight of FATF, AML, TF, CFT, DNFBP, IRS-CID, INL, ICRG, GIABA, GAFISUD, FSRB, FIU, FinCEN, EAG and GPML “mentors” telling foreign politicos what sort of prohibitionist and anti-“laundering” laws to pass. The resulting Survive and Thrive Insider trading–like selling enjoyable drugs–worked like a charm for anyone who is above the law. Bush Jr, Hillary and Timothy Geithner all qualify. Whether the 19-year old daughter of a DEA agent–a sweet child who violated no individual rights whatsoever–also qualifies for exemption from idiotic federal and Texas laws depends, in part, on WHAT you vote for: life and production? or death and taxes?

If you think this delightful child should be murdered for peaceful, rights-respecting, consensual enjoyment, then by all means vote for the Republican Party or Democratic Party prohibitionists. Just don’t act surprised when the Thought Police turn up on your doorstep. To free the girl, expunge the record and clear her name, vote for the Libertarian Party candidate nearest you. This benevolent act will also reduce the likelihood of another financial collapse.

**By militarizing and then bribing all police with asset forfeiture loot and impunity George Waffen Bush made America’s police forces into Public Enemies. Bush, through victimless “crime” demonization is ultimately the man responsible for prohibition killings and in retaliation many a policeman murdered in America today. The Bush dynasty is responsible for the unemployment and financial depression that ALWAYS follows turning tax laws into mohammedan-style instruments of religious enforcement, as in 1987 and 2008.

*** In April 2019 Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams declared in favor of the death sentence for enjoyable drug kingpins and queenpins. This appeared in his Periscope blog, and may eventually be taken down for deniability purposes.
