SOTOMAYOR, J., dissenting

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

No. 21A24

WHOLE WOMAN’S HEALTH ET AL. v. AUSTIN REEVE JACKSON, JUDGE, ET AL.

ON APPLICATION FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

[September 1, 2021]

JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR, with whom JUSTICE BREYER and JUSTICE KAGAN join, dissenting.

The Court’s order is stunning. Presented with an application to enjoin a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of Justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand. Last night, the Court silently acquiesced in a State’s enactment of a law that flouts nearly 50 years of federal precedents. Today, the Court belatedly explains that it declined to grant relief because of procedural complexities of the State’s own invention. Ante, at 1. Because the Court’s failure to act rewards tactics designed to avoid judicial review and inflicts significant harm on the applicants and on women seeking abortions in Texas, I dissent.

In May 2021, the Texas Legislature enacted S. B. 8 (the Act). The Act, which took effect statewide at midnight on September 1, makes it unlawful for physicians to perform abortions if they either detect cardiac activity in an embryo or fail to perform a test to detect such activity. §3 (to be codified at Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. §§171.201(1), 171.204(a) (West 2021)). This equates to a near-categorical ban on abortions beginning six weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period, before many women realize they are pregnant, and months before fetal viability. According to the applicants, who are abortion providers and advocates in Texas, the Act immediately prohibits care for at least 85% of Texas abortion patients and will force many abortion clinics to close.

The Act is clearly unconstitutional under existing precedents. See, e.g., June Medical Servs. L. L. C. v. Russo, 591 U. S. ___, ___ (2020) (ROBERTS, C. J., concurring in judgment) (slip op., at 5) (explaining that “the State may not impose an undue burden on the woman’s ability to obtain an abortion” of a “nonviable fetus” (citing Roe v. Wade, 410 U. S. 113 (1973), and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, 505 U. S. 833 (1992); internal quotation marks omitted)). The respondents do not even try to argue otherwise. Nor could they: No federal appellate court has upheld such a comprehensive prohibition on abortions before viability under current law.

The Texas Legislature was well aware of this binding precedent. To circumvent it, the Legislature took the extraordinary step of enlisting private citizens to do what the State could not. The Act authorizes any private citizen to file a lawsuit against any person who provides an abortion in violation of the Act, “aids or abets” such an abortion (including by paying for it) regardless of whether they know the abortion is prohibited under the Act, or even intends to engage in such conduct. §3 (to be codified at Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. §171.208). Courts are required to enjoin the defendant from engaging in these actions in the future and to award the private-citizen plaintiff at least $10,000 in “statutory damages” for each forbidden abortion performed or aided by the defendant. Ibid. In effect, the Texas Legislature has deputized the State’s citizens as bounty hunters, offering them cash prizes for civilly prosecuting their neighbors’ medical procedures.

The Legislature fashioned this scheme because federal constitutional challenges to state laws ordinarily are brought against state officers who are in charge of enforcing the law. See, e.g., Virginia Office for Protection and Advocacy v. Stewart, 563 U. S. 247, 254 (2011) (citing Ex parte Young, 209 U. S. 123 (1908)). By prohibiting state officers from enforcing the Act directly and relying instead on citizen bounty hunters, the Legislature sought to make it more complicated for federal courts to enjoin the Act on a statewide basis.

Taken together, the Act is a breathtaking act of defiance—of the Constitution, of this Court’s precedents, and of the rights of women seeking abortions throughout Texas. But over six weeks after the applicants filed suit to prevent the Act from taking effect, a Fifth Circuit panel abruptly stayed all proceedings before the District Court and vacated a preliminary injunction hearing that was scheduled to begin on Monday. The applicants requested emergency relief from this Court, but the Court said nothing. The Act took effect at midnight last night.

Today, the Court finally tells the Nation that it declined to act because, in short, the State’s gambit worked. The structure of the State’s scheme, the Court reasons, raises “complex and novel antecedent procedural questions” that counsel against granting the application, ante, at 1, just as the State intended. This is untenable. It cannot be the case that a State can evade federal judicial scrutiny by outsourcing the enforcement of unconstitutional laws to its citizenry. Moreover, the District Court held this case justiciable in a thorough and well-reasoned opinion after weeks of briefing and consideration. At a minimum, this Court should have stayed implementation of the Act to allow the lower courts to evaluate these issues in the normal course. Instead, the Court has rewarded the State’s effort to delay federal review of a plainly unconstitutional statute, enacted in disregard of the Court’s precedents, through procedural entanglements of the State’s own creation.

The Court should not be so content to ignore its constitutional obligations to protect not only the rights of women, but also the sanctity of its precedents and of the rule of law.

I dissent. * * *

Libertariantranslator: Certiorari was denied largely because the “defendants” are shills overtly offering to test a law contrived to baffle scrutiny while violating individual rights. Such law-testing is common and many bad laws have collapsed under scrutiny of test cases. Yet what we are seeing today is the National Socialist males, the ones mostly packing the court on behalf of Positive Christianity, blocking the freedom of female Associate Justices to speak without interruption.

The looter media struggle to hammer all controversy into a contest between “conservative” (christian national socialist) and “liberal” (something they do not even know existed in 1931). Here are some examples of what the Liberal Party of America published in its 1931 platform under Comstock Law censorship.

On the WCTU voting to publicly shame women: Surely these cruel, meddling women are neither Christian nor temperate; rather are they controlled by a prompting of sadism—the joy that comes from inflicting pain on others.

On Opinions and Social Pressure: Now, after five years, a man can speak on these topics without being burnt at the stake–not because there is more tolerance, but because so many people have adopted his views and are not afraid to say so.

On entrenched Soft Machines: We urged the men and women of our State to throw party loyaoty to the winds and vote on a principle which the older parties consistently ignored.

On coercive redistribution: Men and women who get on the dole system will never get off it. It kills independence and respect and permanently pauperizes the citizens whose immediate needs it means to alleviate.

On “vice” entrapment: Innocent men and women are every day molested, arrested, shot, or killed in their homes, or on the public highways, by the agents who, spending the people’s money in debauchery, register under false names at hotels, purchase liquor from irresponsible persons, and drink it; gamble at night clubs, where they pay decoy money to women; and at nightfall roost on fire escapes, like foul vultures, peering into the windows of hotel bedrooms for a clue that will lead to the arrest of unwary travelers. They establish saloons and gambling dens, where they arrest their patrons with a gleeful boast of successful enforcement. They employ young girls of high-school age to get drunk and pass their nights with men under suspicion, who are to be trapped.

On national Prohibition: With murder in their hearts they put poison in alcohol to kill the people who convert it into beverage, and with the glee of a modern Borgia they have killed thousands in that way. On the high seas they shoot their fleeing prey without giving them a chance, and twenty of them at one time get drunk on confiscated liquor. And all this with the inconceivable connivance of the Government at Washington, with money appropriated by Congress for that purpose. Every week they send one thousand men and women to the penitentiary through a law which has outraged the science of jurisprudence; and under that law virtually every citizen in this land is trailed by hired spies in every step that he takes in the pursuance of his daily work, and put in danger of arrest on the mere suspicion and strong hope of his doing that which men have followed with temperate pleasure from the ancient dawn of time.

On the Supreme Court: We shall ask from them a hearing upon every question that opens the way for the examination of the subject by that body, with the hope of leading to the rejection of the Eighteenth Amendment by judicial decision as being in itself, in its statutory form, where the power to legislate has been frozen, a violation of the constitutional rights of the people.
The correction of this deplorable experiment in fanatical tyranny through an ignoble law will restore the personal liberty which has been taken away, reduce general taxation through the revenues which will accrue to the Government, provide a market for the farmer’s surplus grain, furnish employment in harvesting, handling, and transportation to a million men, put an end to the most lucrative method of political graft, destroy the foremost incentive to crime, and end the national hypocrisy which has brought upon us the contempt of the world.

The only party today that is even remotely liberal is the Libertarian Party of America.

007 Spoiler Votes

Seven Bond books became movies before the Libertarian Party published its 1972 laissez-faire platform.

Reason magazine began challenging The Kleptocracy back in 1968, and probably convinced most of our fewer than 4000 voters to back the platform. That single, conscience-driven electoral vote was a shot across the bow of a Kleptocracy busily gorging on George Wallace Dixiecrat racial collectivism, foreign entanglement warmongering and girl-bullying xenophobia. Reason helped increase that to over 4 million votes, increasing 80% per annum by 2016. This James Bond satire is a sample of their output.(link)

Since 2016, infiltrators hacking the platform for importation of terrorists and taxation of citizens to support actual confessed or in flagrante murderers have temporarily paralyzed our growth. So when in doubt about new planks or communist anarchist candidate-impersonators, why not donate instead to the Reason Foundation? It’s the one move you’ll not regret.

Prohibition II at 64

Sound familiar? See original Antifa-Chad story (link)

Republican Gov. Ronald Reagan must’ve been horrified when young people turned away from revenue-generating heroin and opium to tasteless, colorless, odorless, harmless LSD – which was legal as sea salt at the time–in 1967.

It took three years of police beatings, infiltration and extortion for governments to change domicile flower children into individuals that were often a match for their own hired muscle. The news article tells the story:

Skippies – Tough Hippies – New Los Angeles Headache. LOS ANGELES – first beatniks, then hippies, and now Skippies. Laurel Canyon in a fashionable section of Los Angeles is home base for skippies, hippie -looking youths so named by Canyon residents for their reputation for skipping out on everything – EDUCATION, JOBS AND RENT.
Unlike their hippie look-alikes, the Skippies are described as harder, tougher than early flower children. And their appearance in Laurel Canyon has coincided, authorities say, with a sudden rise in the number of brushfires and burglaries and a burgeoning narcotics problem. [Sound familiar? After another 50 years of superstitious and violent prohibition laws, the same phenomenon has spread northward all the way through Portland to the Canadian border. Clearly California voters and the Federal Kleptocracy prefer this state of affairs to freedom and individual rights.]

All of California has been smoky with brushfires for years now, while looter politicians point to the hobgoblin of global warming as the evident culprit. Voters in California have alternated between the two halves of the looter kleptocracy these past 64 years, and wildfires have increased, litter is everywhere, and bands of violent ragamuffins take over entire boroughs and bankrupt the landlords now getting the initiation of force they voted for and deserve.
Might this be a good time to rethink these policies? Surely 64 years is a valid test of the Third Law of Politics:

For every initiation of force, there is unequal yet apposite reprisal force.

Austin Texas also enjoyed a hippie subculture at that same time. Kleptocracy governors John Connally, Adolph Briscoe and Bill Clements gleefully adopted shoot-first prohibitionism and competed with federal press gangs in the incarceration of victimless youths in prison cells and involuntary servitude in Southeast Asia. Right above the Lewiston Sun Article on coercion-hardened Skippies is an article on Women being bought and sold in Soviet Turkmenistan. See if this doesn’t remind you of Texas’ new Red Republican Wife-Beating and Girl-Bullying law:

Government Assails Bride Buying Still Practiced in Soviet. MOSCOW, AP –Yazbul Yagmureva was a champion cotton picker, a hero of Socialist labor, until her parents sold her in marriage. Her father got a nice sum of rubles, some sheep and cattle. Her husband said he wasn’t going to have his wife working on a cotton-picking collective, and Yazbul was “wrenched from her beloved labors” near Bayrim Ali.
“Was her song finished?” Asked the Communist Party organ Pravda. “No. Inspired by party appeals to fight against the old ways and remove obstacles from collective labor, Yazbul found the power to go back to work again and show her abilities.
“Now she heads a team of grape growers at another collective. Her team gets the highest yield, she is the mother of six and a candidate member of the Communist Party.” (link)

Texas: Involuntary servitude and forced labor (link)

Republicans have spurned Libertarian ways and returned to their roots, so grimly portrayed by Harriett Beecher Stowe, when Red Republicans were the starry-eyed Christian Socialists transfixed by Uncle Tom’s Cabin and eager for their own place in The Kleptocracy. In 2021 bounty hunters, gun in hand, scour the Texas desert, scrubland and brush country in search of girls to bully, while male Supreme Court justices grin in amusement and the New Turkmenistani Associate Justice meekly abets their masculine dereliction.(link) After all… didn’t Texans get exactly what their majority voted for?

The Anti-Leftist Smear

The Forgotten Cover Art (link)

For starters, this relatively new variation on the Argument from Intimidation actually works.(link) California voters had the opportunity to strike down a dishonest and incompetent looter politician, yet were defeated by a combination of chaff and binary collectivism. The chaff, like tinfoil dropped from bombers to confuse the enemy radar came in the form of a couple-dozen granola aspirants added to the ballot to disperse and scatter any opposition to the soft machine. But the more important strategy was a variation on The Forgotten Man.

The Forgotten Man you will recall, is that unremarkable individual to whom William Graham Sumner first called attention in an essay by that same name.(link) It is the man who is neither communist nor National Socialist, who minds his own business rather than meddle forcibly in the lives of others–and keeps his promises. This early reference to the libertarian personality was written by one of America’s most signal defenders of individual rights. Sumner was actually attacked and beaten with a stick by a Dixie Democrat for daring to suggest that black people also had individual rights.(link) FDR went to special lengths to pollute and obfuscate The Forgotten Man by equivocation with unemployable collectivist rabble whose votes he sought to divert from the communist parties.(link)

Nowadays, the Forgotten Man or Woman is invariably the Libertarian party candidate. In the California case, this was Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Hewitt, already working as an elected official in the state of California. Hewitt’s name was carefully elided from all public mention–even by Reason magazine–until just before the election, when it was too late to make any difference. Attention focused on a carbon copy of the Long Dong Silver candidate, an African-American Republican–a species nowadays about as common as an African-American running mate for George Wallace in the 1960s. That Dog Bites Man play was startling enough to actually work when it came time to confirm another girl-bullying prohibitionist to the Supreme Court in 1991.

Fake Hints that Clarence Thomas was an Ayn Rand fan disarmed opposition from defenders of individual rights for women. Thomas’ wig and nose were powdered and confirmed despite Anita Hill’s warnings. So another girl-bullier set to work helping Nixon appointees reinstate Comstock laws stripping women of individuality; essentially condemning them to involuntary labor like Sumner’s pitiable “harlot of slavery.”(link) Suddenly it was as if the 9th, 13th and 14th Amendments had never existed. The Libertarian Party promptly resumed its growth and hardly anyone but televangelical drug agents voted Republican.

God’s Own Prohibitionists, now at a loss to describe their boy in objectively positive terms after the California recall campaign, have–in desperation–taken to referring to the loser as “anti-leftist.” “Republican” has had more vote-getting appeal than “Christian National Socialist” in US elections after 1928 er… 1952. Today “anti-leftist” is a tarbrush wide enough to soil libertarians into presumptive association with Republicans, Nazis, and Spanish, Italian and Romanian fascists. To anyone who does not expect the truth from 2D looter politicians, this “winning by elimination” makes sense. Nixon understood perfectly that the Libertarian Party was the greatest threat ever to his force-initiating soft machine and struggled to have us ignored.(link)

Within 24 hours Nixon had the IRS subsidize non-libertarian parties to freeze out any growth of political freedom.(link) A way was then found to delete the Libertarian Roe v Wade plank–so attractive to women in the 1972 and 1976 libertarian platforms–and replace it with lame verbiage encouraging child molesters and openly inviting foreign terrorists to disregard national borders. Nixon subsidies, plus GOP and anarcho-communist infiltration, retarded but did not reverse, the growth of the Libertarian party–until the looters were driven to desperate measures by 4 million Libertarian spoiler votes in the 2016 election. After that, Fifth Column sleepers were activated and vote-repellent planks and candidates injected at all hazards. THAT got results:

Libertarian voters are outnumbered 32 to 1, but a single libertarian vote suffices to nullify 75% of the mass hypnotic effect of social pressure that causes folks to waste their votes on force-initiating authoritarians. One supporting partner in the Solomon Asch experiment caused test subjects to err 75% less often. Your libertarian vote can give 24 of those 32 benighted voters the gumption it takes to vote for freedom.(link)

Libertarian Defense Caucus, 1982

Libertarians resist assimilation by looters

LP for Disarmament?
On November 8, 1981, the Libertarian National Committee adopted two resolutions – one resolving to dismantle US ICBMs, withdraw nuclear arms from NATO, and calling for a freeze on all nuclear weapons activity; and a second resolving to denounce the AWACS sale to Saudi Arabia – has reported in the November-December 1981 issue of LIBERTARIAN PARTY NEWS.
The author of the resolution was Sheldon Richman, who proposed disarmament planks at the 1981 Denver LP convention. A poll taken at the convention showed that libertarians strongly opposed disarmament. (…)

Commentary, by Egan O’Connor (the following was originally presented as a letter to CALIBER, the publication of the California LP, in response to an article by Jeffrey Rogers Hummel. The opinion expressed here does not necessarily reflect the views of the LDC.–MJD) (good article omitted to avoid copyright claims… pp 3, 4)

Disinformation Bureau
RE: “Derailing the Anti-Soviet Locomotive” by Sheldon Richman, INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, January, 1982 (publication of the Society for Individual Liberty) This critique of Richman’s weak B.S. is omitted lest anyone retaliate with copyright claims… It closes with “Mr Richman has conspicuously advocated nuclear disarmament, but a poll taken at the Denver convention indicated that this position was disapproved by the membership by a 2-to-1 majority.” (FRONTLINES, February 1982 …)

Editorial ~ Perspective
As Editor, I welcome you to the first issue of the Libertarian Defense Caucus newsletter, named AMERICAN DEFENSE in honor of the firm principle of a free society; self-preservation from foreign aggressors. I think it is incumbent on me to explain the objectives of this publication and give some indication of the themes that will be expressed here in future issues.
(1) As a newsletter, we will try to keep you, the reader, abreast of current developments respecting the fortunes, and activities of the LDC–as well as reporting on the evolution of Libertarian Party policy on the subject of national defense.
(2) As a publication of the LDC, we will offer a forum for the expression of outspoken, unorthodox, and controversial libertarian viewpoints on defense and how It may most effectively be obtained for this country. Ms. O’Connor’s article on page 2 is an excellent opening comment.
(3) Because many libertarians lack knowledge of defense matters, and because misconceptions abound within the movement and the Party, the newsletter will present regular articles that provide important information on matters relating to relating to defense, The “Disinformation Bureau” will highlight recent statements or arguments that contain false or prejudicial claims about defense, and will offer background factual material for the reader’s impartial judgement.
(4) To facilitate the purposes of the LDC as an LP caucus, the newsletter will feature articles that analyse the LP platform planks concerning defense policy and foreign policy. Recommendations for platform revisions or corrections will be offered for the readers’ consideration.
(5) Most libertarians favor a strong national defense–yet the Party seems to endorse a policy of virtual disarmament. This situation has come about because the libertarians who favor a strong defense have lost their voices through doubt and intimidation. They have been made to feel ashamed of their convictions by those liber­tarians who, like the Bolsheviks of old, are trying to represent their minority opinion as being the “majority” viewpoint. We of the LDC intend to reverse this process and give voice to the true feelings of the LP membership, whereby they may speak out proudly in favor of defending their land, and the people that they love, and the Constitution that has given us greater freedom than history has ever before recorded. This newsletter will attempt to be the ve­hicle of communication among pro-defense libertarians, that we may all know and be confirmed in our belief that those who love liberty will agree with us.
As Editor, I will do my best to honor fact above prejudice, to be fair in the face of strong disagreement, and to address the readership with candor and clear prose I promise to render my product according to the highest standard I can envision. In return, I expect from you, the reader, a critical eye and the willingness to point out correction when it in due.
In closing, I warn you to be prepared for bitter accusations that, by supporting a strong defense, you are betraying libertarianism. Take heart in the knowledge that freedom is worth fighting for . — Michael J. Dunn

This sampling is from the Libertarian Defense Caucus I joined in 1981 while living in Boulder and working for Petr Beckmann’s Access to Energy and The Golem Press. There was no Internet. A modem was a newfangled gadget Professor Beckmann brought into the mailing room to connect us with his house on Star Route. While explaining how it worked he fooked it up to wall current. With a flash and a spark the thing ejected a mushroom cloud a yard high, the exact shape of the one that rose over Hiroshima 4 years and 4 months after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

I am trying to reestablish contact with other LDC members. The LP is again infiltrated by communist anarchists (there is no other kind). At a glance you can see how voters react to the 2018 planks inviting infected terrorists to enter the U.S. uninspected and advocating vigilante lynchings and tax-supported room and board for confessed and convicted murderers.

Libertarian Women’s Rights 1980-83

This series describes the erosion of the Libertarian Party’s commitment to the defense of individual rights of women. Almost no women with a full set of teeth or natural hair are attracted to the Libertarian Party anymore. Find out why.

1980 LP plank: “We support the right of individuals to contract freely with practitioners of their choice, whether licensed by the government or not, for all health services. We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services, including those which finance abortion services. (44 words)

[The tacked on sellout means women get bullied until AFTER the AMA and GOP quit subsidizing pseudoscience, prohibition and market allocation in order to increase penalties and asset forfeiture, and the LP was OK with this inversion of priorities. Pick up on the competition below.] 

1980 Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Republicans go ballistic with pressure, libel, non-sequiturs, race-suicide hobgoblins, hatred, lies, infiltrators and intimidation to try to undo the Libertarian Party’s 1972-76 defense of individual rights for women. Cowardice strikes deep as God’s Own Prohibitionists carve their prejudices into stone, and Phyllis Schaffly. This carving triggered events in the real world. Schlafly, like Ayn Rand, opposed genocidal communism.(link) Unlike Ayn Rand, Schlafly spearheaded a series of political demonstrations by harridans and zealots against the very thought of women being endowed with individual rights.

1982 events: Three men identifying as the Army of God kidnapped Hector Zevallos (a doctor and clinic owner) and his wife, Rosalee Jean, holding them for eight days.(link) Vandals in San Joaquin County, CA, flooded Planned Parenthood, glued locks, tore out phones; San Francisco clinics were targets of harrying intimidation. Cherry Hill women’s clinic in NJ was firebombed in October, so that at least five clinics closed thanks to pro-violence groups like PLAL.(link



How many Irishwomen does it take to repeal a papal bull?

1983, The Irish Constitution was amended to intrude coercive legislative jurisdiction within individual female bodies–banning pregnancy termination. This exportation of Republican National Socialism was repealed in May of 2018, after 35 years of criminal violation of individual rights.(link) Ireland had no more power to resist the Reagan Administration than Ethiopia was equipped to resist invasion by Mussolini’s régime in 1935. This usurpation was recently repealed (May 2018) by a better than 2/3 margin.

Libertarian Women’s Rights 1972-76

How many Argentine women voters does it take to defeat mystical fascism?

Three out of four “Libertarians” aren’t women. How did this occur within the first party ever to gain an electoral vote for a female candidate on the top ticket with a pro-choice platform? One thing is certain. It didn’t come honestly. Here’s the interplay between our platform and fascist parties pressuring us: 

1972 LP: “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.” 

(Those 22 words formed the basis for Roe v. Wade 45 days after the electoral college voted). The platform also declared against licensing requirements of the sort that make the AMA lobby a cartel exempt from antitrust laws–a cartel that makes all health care unaffordable and enables coercion or women by religious fanatics manipulating medical licenses. By our principles and priorities, grown men who cannot understand that “All persons born” does not include the unborn ought to work to repeal medical licensing laws if they are against health subsidies. Adults should also read the 19th Amendment, which suddenly became highly relevant in October 2021. 

1976 LP: “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or the right of the woman to make a personal moral choice regarding the termination of pregnancy.” (29 words)

1976 GOP: “The question of abortion is one of the most difficult and controversial of our time. It is undoubtedly a moral and personal issue but it also involves complex questions relating to medical science and criminal justice. There are those in our Party who favor complete support for the Supreme Court decision which permits abortion on demand. There are others who share sincere convictions that the Supreme Court’s decision must be changed by a constitutional amendment prohibiting all abortions. Others have yet to take a position, or they have assumed a stance somewhere in between polar positions.
We protest the Supreme Court’s intrusion into the family structure through its denial of the parents’ obligation and right to guide their minor children. The Republican Party favors a continuance of the public dialogue on abortion and supports the efforts of those who seek enactment of a constitutional amendment to restore protection of the right to life for unborn children.”

The GOP also supported passage of the ERA, oddly enough, as it had in 1940 when FDR won a third term. The fact may have influenced inserting “denial of obligation” verbiage to disparage “freedom from coercion” by obscuring and encoding the meaning. 

Note: Battle lines were being drawn. Women were either individuals with rights or breeding units useful to the Political State, racial eugenics theorists and political collectivists. These pressure groups wanted them conscriptable into involuntary servitude via forced labor. Women could be either-or, free individuals or milch cows, but not both. Republicans promptly put pressure on the Libertarian Party even as they sought to bribe and brainwash the young woman on whose behalf the Supreme Court had acted. She was pressured to recant, and the LP was infiltrated and pressured to drop that plank and replace it with something wordier, less honest and more pleasing to our shoot-first prohibitionist competitors.

One law for me…

Eric Arthur Blair of the Burmese Imperial Police

 In colonial India, China under the East India Company and in other militarily defeated regions of the Ottoman Empire, there were two kinds of law after the Capitulations.(link) Foreign occupiers decreed their own sovereign, qualified or even unqualified immunity from the primitive laws of the unwashed subject races. The King of England, once he’d been declared as infallible as the Pope of Rome, could not be sued for cruelty, injustice, expropriations, murder, rape, torture or unmentionable affronts. After all, the premise itself made it logically silly to allow the courts to waste time prosecuting lawsuits already frivolous by definition

Another, no less logical consequence of this was that British imperial policeman Eric Arthur Blair considered it a perfectly natural thing to raise and lay about himself a stick expressly designed for the purpose of beating human beings into submission–casually and routinely clearing his path through crowded railway stations and street markets. These were the heady Burmese Days of the 1920s.(link

Officials less sensitive, concerned and aware than the future George Orwell doubtless delighted in even more brutal methods of clearing a path through the riffraff. In fact, it was probably Orwell’s ironic reference to Acting Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer, the “Hero of Amritsar”–who in those days was as infamous as American Lieutenant William Calley of My Lai Massacre fame–that got one of Orwell’s books banned during WW2.(link) Dyer ordered his troop to fire on unarmed “colored” civilians as if at an Atlanta Wendy’s, causing some 1600 casualties, a third of whom died. Unequal treaties eased the White Man’s Burden in that their extraterritoriality clauses protected them from liability for crimes in “native” courts. It was One Law for Thee, Another for Me. (link)

But that was long ago, before Socialist progress brought us the Ukraine famines, Siberian gulags, National Socialist death camps and Cambodian killing fields. Civilized America now grants Imperial style immunity to militarized police forces packed with violent, unionized, racial collectivists. Giving them free reign to shoot people in the back or break down doors to shoot us in our sleep over suspicion of plant leaves has brought results surprising only to the Imperial Kleptocracy. 

Recent riots wouldn’t even be surprising if the Kleptocracy could manage to censor the information out of existence the way the British Empire did George Orwell’s book “Burmese Days.” Instead of the memory hole or a gentleman’s agreement that the news “wouldn’t serve any real purpose,” we are instead subjected to jamming by noise in the form of fake news and propaganda, most of it unverifiable. Yet the principle hasn’t changed: One Law for Thee, Another for Me. All men are equal, but Kleptocracy minions with service pistols are more equal than others.(link

The difference in America, however, is that the Bill of Rights ensures individuals (and state/national militia) the right to keep and bear arms–up to and including nuclear-tipped antimissile defenses. Flailing your way with a stick through a crowd of Americans is an altogether different proposition from doing that to natives legally disarmed by His Majesty’s or Kristallnacht gun laws. If police union masterminds understood this distinction clearly, they would lobby less for asset forfeiture and more for repeal of prohibition laws–lest the little people they exploit for bribes and protection money find a way to replace them… with unexpected suddenness.

Why Trump Lost

Disclaimer: I did vote republican once, to expiate having voted democratic once and for the sake of Second Amendment Antinuclear Weapons.(link) Since then I have closely observed The Kleptocracy with an eye to poaching their votes to make leveraged Libertarian spoiler votes.(link) Here in three images is a visual summary of why even the most dishonest and sclerotic dementia patient was more attractive to voters than Trump The Antichoice.

Reason 1: Lindsey Graham, the Redneck with Green Teeth who portrayed Justice Amy as his malleable tool of The Antichoice (link)
Spiro Agnew, Tricky Richard Nixon (Quaker 2.0) and Billy Graham as America’s most popular in 1968
Popular American National Socialist heroes 52 years later, in 2020. See any change from 1968?

Add to this the historical fact that prohibitionist asset forfeiture looting as practiced by Republicans in 1873, 1907, 1920, 1929, 1932, 1971, 1987 and 2008 cause fractional-reserve banking liquidity crises and market crashes that damage the economy and wipe out your retirement savings. The most mundane historical facts show clearly that God’s Own Prohibitionists are way more dangerous to the economy than even the pansy-left half of The Looter Kleptocracy. The 19th Amendment and original LP platform finally made girl-bullying as untenable in These States as in Ireland since May of 2018.

Year of the Girl

Year of the Grrrl! (link)

Tatsuya Ishida’s embattled Sinfest comic has an arc going featuring a young lady named 2020, who was a mere baby on New Year’s Day. Already we have a break with hoary tradition by which years come in as male brats and leave as geezers. Dilbert comics feature an ad showing a woman (see? It’s catching on already) wearing a disgruntled T-shirt dismissing 2020 as “wouldn’t recommend.” Tat definitely has the more upbeat approach to the upcoming 2020 fall elections. 

Better looking, better educated

Over a decade younger than your average looter geezer!

Libertarian presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen in 2020 is also of the lady persuasion. But unlike the failed lady candidate of 2016, Jo’s platform does not call for sacrificing the economy to warmunist pseudoscience, jailing kids over plant leaves, policing other people’s countries or even more parasitical bleeding of debt-ridden taxpayers to fatten a greedy-but-declining Kleptocracy.

190 electoral votes swung in 2016!

LP spoiler voters shifted 190 kleptocracy electoral votes

Free on Jorgensen’s platform means uncoerced. Looter platforms seek to rob you to buy other votes at your expense. That’s not free. Looter parties know this, and they also know the LP vote share has been increasing by 80% per year. In 13 States Libertarians got more votes than the difference between the party that denies being fascist and the party that denies being communist. Republicans are again trying to ban birth control as in 1873. Democrats and Econazis are doing their best to make electricity scarce and unaffordable, if not illegal.  

Electricity when beer was a felony

Electricity saves women from drudgery

So before you waste 19/20 of your vote’s potential for law changing clout on either coercive, pussy-grabbing septuagenarian, consider that the Libertarian hockey stick just elected 70 candidates and is slowing state and local soft machine growth. If you vote for the initiation of force, you will continue to get killer cops, communist rioters, vigilante avengers, debt, poverty, foreign enemies and increased probability of biological weapons attacks or serious war. What you vote is what you get. 

We wrote the Roe v Wade decision!

The green line shows libertarian votes cutting taxes at the State and Local level.

Spare a thought for these myriad shocks to the US (and world) economies. Consider the safety and financial future of the younger generation as you prepare to vote.
