SHOOTING BEER, 1929

Before Atlas Shrugged

One block from Medical Marijuana Services

Lots of time, money and effort have gone into fabricating a version of American purged of many historical associations with the Prohibition Era. Everyday expressions clearly understood at the time have been skillfully elided, their replacements having nothing to do with economic aspects of Altruism’s Noble Experiment.

Entire books have been written since 1929, whose main discernible purpose is to obliterate expressions that might lead a reader to doubt official Depression dogma. Any catechism so flimsily thrown together from circular arguments and Newspeak contrivances needs all the shoring-up it can get. Beer-shooting is one of many examples of how the American language has been rectified by the Inner Party Records Department.

To a typical tipsy oaf, beer-shooting is a process of puncturing the bottom of a beer can, sucking on the puncture, then popping the top so that air shoots in and beer jets down into slobbering jaws. But to America’s most famously admired and despised former federal prosecutor, Mabel Walker Willebrandt, beer shooting was an economic process.

Al Capone was a typical organizer of beer shooting. Eliot Ness described how the Capone brothers would rent a brewery, fill its vats with “the magic wort” from another, then add yeast and corn sugar. The resulting real beer was then packaged and the barrels and bottles “shot”–that is, quickly distributed to scattered hiding-places pending delivery to speakeasies and pool halls. Do not confuse shot beer with needled beer–alcohol-free beer with Everclear, and sometimes ether, added to make it potable.

Willebrandt described the process in her August 12, 1929 installment of The Inside of Prohibition syndicated in 22 U.S. Newspapers. Fly-by-night operations “fostered by politicians” made real beer and according to a Philadelphia “beer racketeer” the product was “shot” out to “drops” located about the community. Philadelphia’s “fastest beer shooter” would be amazed to see teevee-addled drunks sucking on cans described “beer shooters.”

Interestingly enough, this installment, titled The Beer Leak, hit the stands 21 days before the slopes of stock market charts changed from increasing to decreasing. Revealed Depression Dogma struggles mightily to efface and evade all mention of possible connections between Willebrandt’s syndicated column, the Crash, and The Great Depression which investors could already discern on the horizon as of September 2, 1929.

For a complete and exhaustive explanation of the facts of everyday reality that caused the Stock Market Crash and Depression, download Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929. The book is live on Amazon Kindle for the price of a righteous pint, and easily readable on ordinary smartphones.

1931 Moratorium on Brains

Christian altruists

Herbert Hoover in 1938 meeting with results of 1931 Moratorium

In 1931 Republican President Herbert Hoover and drug czar Harry Anslinger were pressuring Germany into additional curbs on heroin exportation while semisocialist Germany’s victims were demanding reparations payments under the Treaty of Versailles (which the US did not ratify, but which still involved $10 trillion in gold).

Hoover’s error is relevant to ongoing efforts to extricate These States from the Vichy Paris carbon tax extortion the Obama Administration tried to smuggle past the Senate. Already there is a severe shortage of nuclear power plants in These States–which is the whole reason engineers are forced to rely on coal. Coal is less clean, less safe, and less hardened against attack by comparison. The Paris Capitulation can only benefit Communist China and Venezuela at the expense of the relatively free world. 

As 1931 stupefacient drug prohibition negotiations proceeded, banks in Germany and Austria failed. Depositors were removing their money because they knew the influx of dope money would stop, but reparations claims were persistent. Hoover’s brilliant idea was to let France, Britain, Italy, Russia and others “temporarily” default on war loans payable to the USA. In exchange, they would let Christian altruist Germany default on reparations payments owed to the USA. That was the lose-lose theory of coercive prohibitionism. What happened under the Moratorium was that Germany kept exporting addictive poisons and using the money to build up the Steel Helmets, build submarines and battleships and entrench the National Socialist party. Immediately all of Europe began defaulting on war debts, and even commercial loans of private US capital.

socialism is socialism

Mystical collectivists elect Nazis, thanks to Hoover

Ayn Rand was a Hollywood writer and reader hanging out with pre-code movie stars like Barbara Stanwyck, watching Three on a Match (with husband Frank O’Connor), Scarface, Night Nurse (bootlegger hero), Dinner at Eight, The Secret Six and old Alma Rubens movies. At age 24, newlywed immigrant Ayn Rand was certainly aware of Russian and German anti-jewish fanaticism. All of America was painfully aware of Hoover’s solicitous concern for The Accursed Hun.

The smart Moratorium in Atlas Shrugged is Hank Rearden voluntarily offering rail on credit to Taggart Transcontinental. The dumb Moratorium of 1931 was Hoover helping Hitler’s backers arm and control Germany’s government. To this Ayn Rand drew too vague an analogy with the Moratorium on Brains in Atlas Shrugged. Nor did she clarify the connection–possibly for fear of weakening Barry Goldwater’s GOP while the Soviet still existed.

Dwight Eisenhower was, after all, the conquering Republican president of both These States and the Government of Occupation, and Richard Nixon was his vice-president and anticommunist Wingman when Atlas Shrugged was finally published. But the book was already in its tenth chapter in 1947, when Christian National Socialists were denying ever having so much as suspected that Henry Ford’s Fuehrer’s promise to “extirpate” jewish egoism in Mein Kampf was anything but a joke. That was the year Rand composed the Non-Aggression Pledge. That tersely-worded individual decision established a modern ethical position consistent with the era of mature nuclear physics.

Star Wars and Climate Change

sdi83

Soviet propagandists made a major strategic blunder nicknaming America’s Strategic Defense Initiative “Star Wars.” True, there were easily triggered, sensitive, concerned & aware children on campus convinced the Lucasfilm blockbuster was there “to condition the people into fighting a nuclear war.” (Sample here).

Communist intellectuals instantly snapped this up as the magic meme to counter Reagan’s project for neutralizing incoming ballistic missiles and developing traction for the Surrender Movement. It backfired miserably, and the Prez even commented the “Star Wars” monicker hadn’t been a successful move. Turco, Toon Ackerman Pollock and Sagan produced the TTAPS report.  One computer meddler nobody mentions claimed that no computer code could ever possibly track incoming ICBMs. Edward Teller commented that “Highly speculative theories of worldwide destruction—even the end of life on Earth—used as a call for a particular kind of political action serve neither the good reputation of science nor dispassionate political thought.”  Now, fast forward past the Berlin Wall and Soviet collapse…

The exact same ideology resurrected by many of the same players and NERF-herders is again upon us. Nuclear Winter gave way to the new nickname of Global Warming. The movement was organized in 1992, precisely as the Soviet empire was collapsing like a World Trade Center tower. (e.g. Science Vol 262 pp 1252-1255) The idea this time was to convince Americans that reliable electric power generation was bad–not because it complicated a Soviet nuclear attack–but because human slavery was more natural, eco-friendly and nobly altruistic than those yucky Buckminster Fuller “energy slaves” that converted horsepower into empowerment for a flourishing standard of living. Soviet socialism would be attained at last, but by conditioning and brainwashing, not nuclear brinkmanship. The alternative? Everybody dies!

The watermelon Green party formed and spewed forecasts of national socialist happiness and the spurning of material greed–a chorus picked up by the Union of Communist Scientists and CPUSA.org and imitated everywhere totalitarianism had become entrenched in the 1920s through 1992. Toppling the recalcitrant Democratic party (and girl-groper) via spoiler votes in the y2k election opened the floodgates, but instead of becoming warmer as the Prophets of the New Millerite apocalypse predicted with absolute certainty, temperatures remained constant within measurement error bars.

The prophesy was falsified by physical measurements, and satellite temperatures diverged from tamperable data as of the Y2K election. After 4 years of this the false prophets changed the narrative and began falsifying data to make the past colder and the present warmer. But EVERY momentary shift of ANY kind has since been exploited as a Sign from Heaven as curbside observations,  apocrypha and hearsay increasingly impersonate science.

The 2000 government bureaucrats infesting the IPCC were swamped by over 30,000 real scientists listed with actual degrees whose PetitionProject.org STOPPED ratification of the Kyoto Protocol by the U.S. Senate. Like Millerites after The Great Disappointment, ecological nationalsocialists rebooted. They changed their icon from the Global Warming non-starter to Climate Change. This was the subject of Dr. Michael Crichton’s “State of Fear.”  Just as No Nukes! had shape-shifted to Stop Star Wars!, so Global Warming underwent a makeover into Climate Change.

But as Geologist Ian Plimer of Australia, nonmystical author of Heaven and Earth testifies: “Climate always changes, always has, and always will.”

Liberal Party of America, 1931

LIBERALPARTYCOVERA proto-Libertarian Party was organized in 1930

This first approach to a Libertarian Party was organized in 1930 to repeal prohibition, the 18th Amendment and block intrusive religious laws–blue laws, Sunday closing laws, baseball bans on Sundays. It is hard for anyone today to imagine we had something like Sharia law during Prohibition in America. Once this Liberal Party published its 1931 platform, the Democratic Party had little choice but to adopt a prohibition repeal plank. Otherwise, frustrated beer drinkers would vote their conscience and those lost spoiler votes would cost the Democrats the 1932 election.

The Liberal Party was non-protectionist, non-militaristic, anti-war, forgiving of war debts, opposed to communism and the dole, church/state separatist, favored normal election of senators, legal no-fault divorce, wanted removal of censorship and curbs on employment and abolition of useless federal bureaus. Its existence and positive influence, like the causal connection between Prohibition and the Depression are a well-kept secret.

So, why do the Republican, Prohibition, Consta-to-shun and Tea parties hate “liberals” as much as German National Socialists hated liberals in 1932? Here are a few tidbits…

At a meeting held in New York City on February 4, 1930, which was attended by about one hundred representative men from every section of the United States, a proposal was made to create a national political organization to be called the Liberal Party. (…) The discussion developed the general agreement that America is being held tight in a strangling grip by powerful groups of men and women, narrow and fanatical of mind, who had constituted themselves an ecclesiastical union, guided by a fatuous intention of making our people virtuous, according to the peculiar tenets and creeds of each group, by legislative enactments… 

Would people have moral courage enough to break away from the lifelong ties of political fealty? Above all, would the young men and the young women of the nation behold the light and promise of a new day, and would they give their allegiance and support to a movement which aimed to restore to them the vanished liberties which their fathers had established?

WHAT CRUSHES NATIONAL ECONOMIES

Does that fanatical strangling grip of 85 years ago remind you of anyone?  Here we are 44 years after the Libertarian Party formed to press for many of the same policy changes, and so far only 3% of the voters have gathered the courage to cast law-changing spoiler votes. Granted, this mid-term election result is a 300% increase over the sort of totals we got before the Asset Forfeiture Crash of 2008, and in a way it makes sense.

National markets collapsed in 1929 in expectation of Herbert Hoover’s Republican Administration wrecking the economy by ramping up prohibitionist asset forfeiture. By 1932 the situation was intolerable and the nation’s honest media made it clear that prohibition and the income tax were the jaws of the pliers crushing the nation’s economy.

The Liberal Party made the historic first move and one of the entrenched looter parties followed their lead. The dactyl that made beer a felony was broken off but replaced by prohibition of other enjoyable drugs, and the income tax propodus remained to cause economic recessions in 1937-38, 1988-92, and the recent 2007-09 asset-forfeiture recession.

After 1929 it took Americans three years to come to their senses and vote for repeal. In the nine years since the 2007 ramp-up in asset forfeiture several states have moved to repeal prohibition and need more libertarian spoiler votes to bolster and reinforce this sound policy. Votes for any other party send the wrong message and are wasted.

Are you surprised to learn how the repeal of prohibition began? Buy my book, Prohibition and The Crash, for a month-by-month examination of how President Hoover’s enforcement of the Jones Five and Ten Law crushed the U.S. economy.

Job opportunities for translators

Tired of being commoditized and re-outsourced like a rented bicycle? What about competing with countless desperate bracero-serfs eagerly throwing themselves at crowdsourcing faceless corporations? Here are some opportunities many linguists overlook…

ACCESSORY TO GENOCIDE: Tired of scrubbing splatter out of your Levis after torture session interrogations at Gitmo? Why not go straight to the front lines where they capture suspected enemy combatants and be a proud Crusader and drone interpreter? The language barrier leads to all sorts of undesirable combat situations. One of the most memorable appeared in a John Wayne movie “The Longest Day”, where at Normandy beach two Germans, hands raised, stagger out of a smoking bunker, hands up, hollering “bitte, bitte…” A surprised G.I. riddles the pair with bullets and remarks to his friend “I wonder what ‘bitte bitte‘ means…”

You can download the sound byte for practice

Dilbert creator Scott Adams, sensitive as ever to the dilemmas of human frailty, writes about robot drones in combat taking kill shots ordered by a committee of joystick jockeys assisted by their trusty interpreter. This uniformed worthy will, with a sneer on the side at the jaws of danger, inform the drones hovering at his shoulder that “Lütfen, lütfen” is Turkish, or “Thov, thov” Hmong Dau, for “please don’t shoot me!” This job is the true meaning of doing well by doing good.

I am not making this up: “Another robot bonus: One translator could be on call to speak to humans through drones flying at head level. That way your translator is wherever the drones are.”

Or maybe you’re the more intellectual type, or  allergic to high explosives… never fear. Zealous religious conservatives in Holland are appalled that their countrymen refuse to forgive and forget their occupation by conservative National Socialists during WWII. They are even more appalled that the libertarian pushback has taken the form of legalization of prostitution. Unable to strip those houris of their self-ownership rights, the better people who know what’s good for the riffraff have done the next best thing. They appealed to a European Court more kindly disposed toward the pious strictures of Positive Christianity that still serve as window-dressing in the provinces, hence the job opp.

INTERPRETER FOR SEX WORKERS: The Court, troubled by vivid memories of girl-auction scenes in Rudolph Valentino movies, has legislated that pimp landlords must interview tenant window-undressing girls in their exotic native tongues to make sure no Sheik has sold them down the Nile. Here’s the kicker: telephonic interpreting of the sort often resorted to in U.S. District and Immigration courts is not good enough to protect their blushing innocence. Opportunity knocks now that actual wingtips-on-the-ground in-person interpreters are needed to make sure those gorgeous prostitutes understand what they are getting into.  Again, doing well by doing good.

Is this a great planet or what?
