Communists without Borders

Spoiler votes topple Comstockism 1892

Communist spoilers carried 5 states with 22 electoral votes and enacted a Manifesto Income Tax

Many of the things communists agitate for in mixed-economy States would get them shot in their own dictatorships. The current fad in democracies is to infiltrate nascent libertarian organizations and persuade any suckers present that inspected jurisdictional boundaries are baaad. The obvious reductio argument for this is that wholesale importation of foreign terrorists and infected herds of cattle is goood–but this is never the preferred approach. Even birds are smart enough to know there is something wrong with a snake climbing the tree to approach their nest. 

Beware of altruism

Donations to the hijacked National Party

Imagine a burglar infiltrating a homeowners’ association and persuading the members to remove their front doors, leaving only the openings. Though difficult to imagine anyone liable to go along with the plan so baldly stated, social pressure can make it happen. Several infiltrators join the association in cahoots, then issue comments like “I sure saved on electricity since removing the front door.” This is reinforced with “me too” rejoinders and appeals to the virtue of gregariousness over “isolationism.” Soon homes can be burgled without so much as a by-your-leave. That is what has happened to the National Libertarian Party more than once.(link) Back then it was Republican infiltrators wrecking the LP in retribution for the 1972 platform having handed the Supreme Court the language that became the 1973 Roe v Wade decision

infiltrating brood parasite

After uninspected entry onto the LP Platform Committee

By the late 1970s Libertarian publications contained ads offering “Anarchist Pamphlets,” while unemployable cognoscenti poured forth assertions that closing the gate or inspecting border crossings is an act of aggression and a breach of ideological consistency. Shills are swapped in to replace actual libertarians loath to remain in the company of suckers and cretins.(link)

1 equals 0

The fallacy of equivocation

Voters find themselves confronted with platforms that demand “children’s rights” to be used as catamites and uninspected open borders entry of religious terrorists in suicide vests showing no identification. The resulting fake Libertarian party is promptly tarred and feathered, the Kleptocracy lustily resumes its asset-forfeiture looting with both hands in the till, two snouts in the trough and First Responders™ shooting kids with qualified immunity. It has happened here and is happening again now, thanks mainly to communist anarchist infiltrators passing themselves of as “libertarians”.

Anarchist looters versus libertarians


Since the national Libertarian Party has since 2016 been infiltrated into an engine of self-inflicted death, other sources have to be called on to get out the Libertarian message. Tarl has probably never heard of the law-changing clout of spoiler votes (link), and has doubtless never read “The Case for Voting Libertarian.”(link) No surprise there. This is the one subject area BOTH halves of the looter kleptocracy struggle to evade, ignore and wish away. Still, the guy is the only sensible commenter urging libertarians to waste potentially law changing spoiler votes on the Gee-Oh-Pee in a cup half of The Kleptocracy.

Simply put, the socialist platform of 1920 had become law before Milton Friedman published Free to Choose. Yet the socialists got very few votes and elected hardly anybody. Same is true of the Prohibition party–except that after it caused the Great Depression, the Prohibition Amendment was repealed and those looters focussed on other enjoyable plant products.(link) All major changes in U.S. laws have sprung from the platforms of minor parties. Look at how the George Wallace campaign made the GOP eat Jim Crow and helped Yippie communist infiltrators turn the Dems into a Soviet satrapy.(link)  As libertarian planks draw increasingly large vote totals, the senile, sclerotic altruist parties of the 19th Century co-opt those planks in a bid for more votes.(link)

The Libertarian Party’s first platform had a plank copied and pasted into the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision stopping Dixiecrats from press-ganging women into involuntary labor in the service of race-suicide pseudoscience.(link) Draft cards suddenly disappeared. And ever since the George Waffen Bush faith-based asset-forfeiture looting spree again wrecked the economy, plant leaf prohibition has increasingly been repealed as libertarian vote share increased by 80% per year.(link

WINNING!

LP spoiler votes cause repeal of bad laws and taxes

Remember how Nixon’s Silent Majority suddenly started backing away from victimless crime coercion when Tricky was cornered into resigning? But they again hoisted torches and pitchforks once Jimmy turned our embassies into KFC ovens for diplomats and crash pads for mummy-brained jihadists. Compromise with the looter kleptocracy is a waste of time. The two-party system is a switch-hitting tag team. A third party has to actually make them lose on policies (not personalities) before the message sinks in. When it does sink in, they ratchet back coercive legislation that has been accumulating since the 1870s.(link)  Eventually the LP can displace one or the other the way the Whigs did the Federalists, Republicans did the Whigs or brood parasite hatchlings do their hosts.

Libertarian candidate and Zippy Pinhead

ZippySpike20

On May 28 educated Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen spoke on Libertarian TV. Here is something her unwanted running mate said: (link)

I actually uh started my uh belief my political belief as somewhat of a neocon. Uh my parents were more kind of libertarian leaning Republicans, but I uh after 9/11 I bought into the whole neocon lie that we had to spread democracy to keep us safe from the terrorists who hated us for our freedoms and so forth and over time, seeing the reality of what happened during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, it really made me re-examine what I believed, uh and over time I went from being a neocon, to more of a just regular conservative, to a constitutionalist, to a minarchist, to eventually down to a, a, a, libertarian.

[Translation: people who want a democratically elected government to defend their individual rights against aggression through objectively-defined laws against theft, fraud and violence are NOT libertarians but rather, “minarchists,” whereas anarchist communists who want to do away with our government, do away with all laws against murder, rape and violence, and inhabit no-man’s-land between trenches of opposing armies are the real libertarians.] 

Baby Cuckoo Fratricide

Brood Parasite Infiltrators Kill the Hosts that Feed Them

You couldn’t ask for a clearer example of parasitical mimicry or of the fallacy of equivocation. Cuckoos and cowbirds are brood parasites.(link) They lay their eggs in other birds’ nests. Then those hatch, the baby impostor parasite pushes the real baby birds and eggs out of the nest.

This is what communist anarchists are doing to the Libertarian Party. This is what Ayn Rand grasped almost immediately.(link) Exponents of conservative fascism (whom Ayn appreciated as at least opposed to communism) began slipping “anarchist” into their op-ed pieces casually mentioning the LP.(link) The rest is what we saw at the convention and still can see in post-1972 platform planks–and are seeing as mass looting and amok rampagers.

Wavy Gravy 2.0

Das Boothead, Trojan Pony

Forty-eight years have passed in which the LP was infiltrated by communist anarchists, child-molester advocates, anti-choice mystics, failed republicans, and now Wavy-Gravy Dada-ists, angry shellshocked vets and the bewildered. We finally got Gary Johnson (Of NM, not TX) to stop pushing to bully pregnant women. Sure enough, his vote share went UP by 328% just like that, putting us on a replacement logistics curve that increased 80% per year headed toward half of the vote in the variable future.(link)

WINNING!

Libertarian vote share hockey stick on logistics curve

Naturally, the Kleptocracy dirtied its drawers. Uninspected entry anarchism was quickly injected into the platform in 2018, alienating even liberal-minded lay conservatives but thrilling non-voters. This was momentarily reversed, but 2020 platform hacks again invite terrorists, infected herds and communist paupers to invade America with no visa or inspection (plank 1.9).

Even the child-molester language of the late 1980s has been resuscitated as “gender autonomy” vote-repellent.(link) In order to attract more Autozone looters and communist anarchist infiltrators, platform proposals now include abolition of copyrights (plank 2.14), death sentence by lynch mobs, not government (plank 1.8 or 1.10), and to make sure THAT message sinks in, the platform draft spits Jefferson squarely in the eye: 

The only proper purpose of government, should it exist, is the protection of individual rights. 

Traitors now entrenched in the LNC had some trouble slipping that fraud past delegates not entranced with the idea of free ponies. The platform now resembles something defecated upon by professional anarchists. Should anyone wish to send a warning shot across their bow, I have here a modest suggestion: NOT A PENNY! 


Your donations to the LNC feed looter anarchist infiltrators!

Find a state or county whose delegates voted against Vermin Das Boothead and Zippy Spike Pinhead and send THEM donations instead. With fewer honest donors as camouflage, it might be easier to identify who is corrupting the National Libertarian Party and putting Jo’s campaign at risk. ***

Anarchism, Spain, 1933

bomb-throwing commies

Socialist laborite malcontents (link)

EVERY time the word Anarchist appeared in newspapers before 1971 it meant “violent communist.” Thanks in part to Republican Party manipulation of the press, America’s illiterati suddenly decided to believe “anarchist” meant Libertarian, that is, voters who signed the non-aggression principle. But before you consider this the height of criminal stupidity, recall that the same thing happened before, in 1932.(link

Before 1932, right wing and left wing were subjective terms used to describe troop movements, and had nothing to do with mercantilism or socialism. But when the Liberal Party published its 1931 anti-Klan platform calling for relegalization of beer, prohibitionists ignored it.(link)  They struggled to ignore it until the Liberals donated the plank to the Democrats.(link) Eugenics-minded prohibitionists then adopted Hitler’s use of “liberal” which roughly meant disloyal selfish Jewish communist backstabbers.(link) Then again, in the same newspaper we see Democrats trying to redefine some of their own tarnished hero-images in the funny pages. 

Republican-Nationalsocialist redefining of “liberal” was received by repeal forces with whoops of joy as a badge of pride, and has gradually been sculpted to mean Fabian socialist by its defenders and fifth-column communist by Republicans. Teenagers look up the real meaning (libertarian-leaning) in dictionaries and decide it’s a good thing. I certainly did. The thing about generalizations is that any counterexample seriously weakens them–much the way a single dissenter drastically weakens the opinion-shaping power of majority social pressure.(link

But the dictionary and newspapers in several languages make it equally clear anarchism is a synonym for warfare in general, and communist guerrilla warfare in particular. I have been republishing news clippings like these for years. So when was the last time you saw a pre-1971 article equivocating Ancap or Antifa goons with Libertarians, objectivists or capitalists?

communist stabbers and bombers

Anarchists, violent socialists, labor goons, communists (continued)

When seventies antichoice Republicans screeched “liberal!” they meant anti-prohibition Libertarians who wrote the platform plank that became the Roe v Wade decision enforcing individual rights. In the 1980s the Republican version of the meaning shifted to include pederasts, tax-and-spend looters and all manner of godless socialists and communists. 

At about that time sabotage planks appeared in the LP platform, lending substance to those smears, while unemployed socialists, labor goons, antichoice mystics, communists, malcontents and looters in general “joined” the LP to explain that anarcho-communism is the real “ancap” libertarianism. This lot infiltrates the platform committee to twist the verbiage into something John Hospers–indeed any thinking person–could recognize as sabotage by agents-provocateur. 

Democrats today honestly identify Republicans as fascist while Republicans just as honestly identify Democrats as communist-socialists. Yet both parties hotly deny that either label applies to themselves. Impersonation and mimesis have replaced definitions and identification among parasites.

ANcapitulation versus Libertarian Party

Nazi beavers from a Canadian publication

An Austin Cartoonist suggested Beaver for LP mascot and anarchism as policy!

Collectivist infiltrators exploit primitive literalism to weaponize the NAP against the party that consistently cuts taxes and repeals bad laws. Could a communist anarchist Fifth Column destroy the LP from within? It is doing it now by exploiting three errors in thinking.

Ayn Rand formulated the non-aggression agreement in April of 1947, as National Socialist war criminals fled into Soviet Russia and South America to avoid trial and execution. In the same letter Rand explained that any definition which is not specific, not objective, is dangerous. The LP platform of 1972 advocates minimizing coercion–including coercion through menacing by government or criminals acting against individual rights–within the electoral system under the U.S. Constitution. Its goal is limitation of political power to the defense of individual rights through objectively defined laws against initiation of force, fraud and violence. This goal is what communists posing as libertarians are AGAINST

To defeat our purposes communist infiltrators claim that “no true libertarian” can collaborate with the world’s shortest Constitution because it includes the power “to lay taxes” (which meant inspection of imports funded by a tariff for revenue). This call to armed treason never mentions a better constitution and instead rejects the existence of national boundaries in favor of eternal warfare in the form of guerilla bands competing in forcible restraint, as in the Middle East.

Fascist infiltrators greet these efforts with whoops of joy, for they need only point to soi disant communist infiltrators and holler “murdering anarchists.” That tarbrush colors voter perceptions as they approach the ballot box to choose between endorsing our platform or the Kleptocracy. Anarchists infiltrating the platform committee after the Roe v Wade decision incorporated our 1972 platform plank ruined that victory for women’s rights by adding mandatory pederasty planks.(link) Just this year saboteurs declared checking passports and denying entry to herds of infected cattle aggression!(link) We’re lucky to be rid of that idiot plank, but the saboteurs who swatted us with it are still on the platform committee and need to resign or be fired so we may continue to replace the cleptocracy. 

WINNING!

Increasing is WINNING

Spoiler votes amended the Constitution to include a communist income tax and a prohibition amendment, both pointing loaded weapons at Americans. But Libertarian spoiler votes are reversing those types of laws by the same process. So every LP candidate who gets any votes at all wins by changing the laws. Spoiler means making kleptocracy looting difficult. 

spoiling for a fight

Increasing is WINNING!

Winning is what our voters get. They might not put someone on a payroll, but there is no way to ignore the platform demands of a party that gets 4.5 million votes in the Presidential race, and another 7 million votes in down-ballot races. In order to keep from losing to the other kleptocrats, republicans have to let go of girl-bullying and prohibition, and democrats have to let go of tax hikes and packing government jobs with officious meddlers. 

So 1. The NAP does not imply admitting barbarian invaders, 2. our spoiler votes are leveraged demands cannot be ignored and shift over 100 electoral votes, and 3. winning is what happens when the fascists and communists back away and repeal coercive legislation.

Tarl on Libertarian Immigration

Tarl Warwick offers news and information on the web, and does it better than the people I pay to inform me (like Reason Magazine). Here is his take on immigration policy.

With the LP platform committee bristling with more narcs, infiltrators and provocateurs than a sixties SDS rally, this sort of calm, commonsense convocation to use one’s brain is as apropos as all getout.

One thing needs to be background. We all realize that a right is an ethical claim to freedom of action, and that freedom itself is the absence of initiated coercion, not all that many appreciate the definition of government. This was clearly formulated and published in 1919 by mixed-economy statist Max Weber in Politics as a Vocation:

“Today, however, we have to say that a state is a human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory. Note that ‘territory’ is one of the characteristics of the state.”–Max Weber

That Pythagoras was superstitious as a loon, or Einstein a nationalizing socialist looter says nothing about their theories. The communist looters who infiltrate the LP avoid mention of Weber, or of Ayn Rand’s take on the Weber definition. But less than a year after government was defined, Adolf Hitler, painter of churches, peasant girls and Madonnas with Baby Jesus, penned his National Socialist Labor Party platform packed full of the initiation of force and invasion and looting across OTHER people’s borders in the true spirit of altruism.

A country without political boundaries is a battlefield. Look at old newspapers with French, Canadian and British troops capturing and recapturing stinking cratered trenches and there you have the undefined borders that cause anarchist communists to heave sighs of stunned admiration. But remember, that was before 1945, the year nuclear weapons–designed to vanquish socialism and its allies–came of age. Nowadays nobody cares how many invading conscripts you are able to enslave.

Why not delve into what sort of voting 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.

LP Platform Committee felony endorsement

With friends like these...

Joining enemy to fight U.S.  (link)

The clipping is from when HUAC was praised as a good thing because it investigated baaad Christian National Socialists rather than goood communist socialists. I personally am all in favor of destructive Antifa saboteurs spitting in the faces of armed border guards. I expect to be delighted as a spectator to the outcome–provided only that the infiltrating saboteur does not claim to represent the Libertarian Party.

But alas, such is not the case.(link) The same infatuated public-mind-reader who attacks the reasonably good migration plank we had in 2008 and 2016–when LP vote share ROSE by a factor of 3.28–is doubling down. The LP Platform Committee’s version of Josef Belohlavek now demands that “we” endorse uninspected entry of malcontents from every brainwashed dictatorship and People’s State, nevermind the corona virus, ebola carriers, wanted murderers, or religious berserkers in suicide vests.

With friends like these...

This has to seem like some sort of overstatement or mischaracterization. PLEASE read it in the words of the “libertarian” whose feelings determine what laws we seek–not to repeal so much as to urge others to violate.(link) In the real world I handle stories of poor miserable wretches lured into detention and deportation proceedings after being urged to simply invade without permission and tell a hard luck story. The Migration plank (which in 2016 helped us earn 4 MILLION votes) needs to say:

… Political freedom and escape from tyranny demand that individuals not be unreasonably constrained by government in the crossing of political boundaries. Economic freedom demands the unrestricted movement of human as well as financial capital across national borders. However, we support control over the entry into our country of foreign nationals who pose a credible threat to security, health or property.

The omitted first sentence is counterproductive package-dealing. Terrorism and communicable disease entry, like the dropping of aerial bombs, are NOT free trade.

Thomas Knapp and everyone else on the platform committee who participated in the mutilation and disfigurement of what in 2016 was an attractive Migration plank need to RESIGN and volunteer for something constructive–like running for office and meeting voters. Thanks to them I no longer donate over and above dues to the National LP. Other Libertarians revolted by sabotage planks are deserting the national party to support state and local party organizations instead–or returning to the Kleptocracy in disgust. As in 1982, the National LP has succumbed to the pressure of hostile infiltrators out to see to it that LP spoiler votes shall not compete with the Kleptocracy.(link) The best way to accomplish this is add backstabbing planks to make us look like allies and abettors of parasites and provocateurs.

Voting against Violence

Pew Research: Crime rates have fallen…

Here’s how violence in America changed as the Libertarian party’s share of the vote more than tripled. Not a single one of these spoiler votes was wasted. Nor were they impotent “protest” votes of the sort bled off by the Tea-talitarian or Communist parties. In fact, the collapse of totalitarian socialism in Europe cut off a major source of inspiration and funding for infiltrating intellectuals of the looter persuasion operating in These United States. Libertarian spoiler votes are the most effective way for individuals to induce Kleptocracy political parties to give up cruel and violent laws. The leverage advantage is enormous for every libertarian vote, especially with a hockey stick substitution curve growth rate.  

Fisher-Pry sigmoid logistic replacement curve

LP entering the steep part of the Replacement Curve.

The shedding of anti-choice infiltrators and provocateurs whose sole occupation was to enrage and alienate voters with asinine shibboleths also wiped away excuses for sabotaging the LP. Republicans clearly see from the decline of superstition, the machine-gunning of antichoice dictator Ceausescu and wife, the recognition of women’s individual rights here, in Canada, The Netherlands, England–even in Italy and Ireland (link)–guarantee that Comstockism will lose them elections, not net them graft, boodle, power and pelf. They and the Dems must choose between copying libertarian planks and joining the Federalist, Whig, Communist and American Independent parties in the dustbin. (link)

Yet many libertarians sit still while communist anarchist infiltrators volunteer to swell the LNC, spit on voters and wreck our platform. EXAME magazine is a leading voice of Brazilian National Socialism. Its publishers and writers sweat and struggle to keep the LP as illegal in Brazil as it is in China and Cuba. Guess whose face they published (in a photo labeled Gary Johnson) as representative of the Libertarian Party in the last election? Coincidence? or was that bad apple hand-picked to make the LP look bad in the largest country in South America. (The magazine was soon afterward restrained by court order, then sold off by the publishers).

These are not novel tactics. The Republican party seduced the ku-klux Klan into its own serried ranks as Tammany’s catholic candidate Al Smith threatened to repeal national prohibition in 1928. After the American Liberal Party handed FDR the key to repeal and presidency for life, God’s Own Prohibitionists found sympathy with the German Christian and National Socialist parties Hoover had strengthened with his Standstill Agreement.(link) The attack on Pearl Harbor made pressing that strategy as suicidal as demanding a régime of Econaziism to stop imaginary global warming, or Comstockism to curry favor with “warriors for the babies.” But joining the war made These States take part in an alliance with the Soviet dictatorship that had divvied Poland with the Nazis. We have been a house divided ever since.

LP Errors

When the Libertarian Party’s official publication cannot identify kleptocracy policy errors, resignations are in order. Above is a case in point from the March 2010 issue of LP News. Mindful that we rely on amateurs and volunteers, and must expect them to overlook salient facts embarrassing to the predatory professionals with whom we compete, it is still a good thing to understand what is going on. Two, six, nine and ten are the result mainly of Republicans bombing OTHER superstitious fanatics half a planet away. Four, five, seven and eight are primarily due to reckless, violent, prohibitionist looting of the sort HL Mencken described as Comstockism.

The market crash of 2008 had the same main cause as the crashes of 1907, 1920, 1929 and 1987. In all those cases prohibitionist fanatics laid hands on a weapon with which to threaten the lives and livelihoods of other citizens. In 1907 the Pure Food and Drug act empowered dry fanatics and crony mercantilists to interfere with commerce they felt was sinful. The same occurred in 1920, was nullified by police connivance and participation in bootlegging. It then went ballistic as the income tax liability ruling of 1927 combined with the March 2, 1929 Increased Penalties Act to topple the economy as of early September 1929. Why then? Because that’s when Mabel Willebrandt’s column explained the new enforcement methods. Now fast forward.

In 2007-8 Bush Jr, reelected, had nothing to lose by subsidizing fanatical prohibition evangelists with “faith-based” government appointments and tax money. Grow houses, autos, boats, aircraft, bank accounts and real estate were confiscated at accelerating rates until mortage-backed securities became worthless by dint of wholesale looting and impairment of mortgage contracts–over PLANT LEAVES!

Nobody at Libertarian Party headquarters noticed this mechanism. Even the first Flash Crash two years later did not rouse our eternally vigilant watchmen from the sleepy vagueness with which the Kleptocracy muffles evidence of its blunderings.

THEY sure as hell understand what happened. Bert Hoover wrecked the economy trying to bust Al Capone and thus intimidate the yeast and glucose Trusts. Simultaneous efforts against German narcotics then replacing alcohol led to our empowerment of Hitlerian National Socialism in a sucker’s bargain that got Roosevelt’s repeal party elected five times running.

Superstitious altruistic prohibitionists know that service pistols attacking freedom of trade and production (of grain products and plant leaves) kills people and the economy, but what they care about is Satan. Other superstitious prohibitionists can feel that service pistols attacking freedom of trade and production (of power plants and transmission lines) increases the death rate, but what they care about is individualism.
