Atlas Shrugged, 2018

Who is John Galt?

Dallas’ looter government ruined Yellow Bike companies with fees, taxes and regulations. Hello Starnesville!

“Nobody can be sure of anything.”

—Rudy Giuliani, asked how he could be sure Trump had no advance knowledge about the June 9th Trump Tower meeting.

Does this sound familiar? Compare…

“Nobody is right, or ever can be.”

—Dr Robert Stadler, Atlas Shrugged.

“Nobody is right or wrong, we’re all in it together, we’re all human—and the human is the imperfect.”

—Lilian Rearden, Atlas Shrugged

“Nobody is fully right or wrong!” “How can we ever be sure of anything?”

—James Taggart, Atlas Shrugged.

Remember the blighted areas in Atlas Shrugged? Places where altruistic politicians sent men with guns to help by militarizing prohibitionism, inducing asset forfeiture as predatory parasitism and replacing choice with coercion? They’re baaaack…

Socialism in Amerika and Germany

Socialists are, as usual, ticked off at The Don Jr. (Disclaimer: this blogger votes libertarian). By quoting a recent comment “both sides” disclose a disconnect between reality and their own brainwashing doled out in government schools.

Here’s the quote:

“You see the Nazi platform in the early 1930s and what was actually put out there, and you look at it compared to, like, the DNC platform of today, and you’re saying, ‘Man, those things are awfully similar,’ to the point where it’s actually scary. To me, that was one of the most striking things I took from the movie because it’s the exact opposite that you’ve been told.” —Donald Trump Jr. on Dinesh D’Souza’s film “Death of a Nation”

Ayn Rand did the same thing back when Kennedy (D) defeated Richard Nixon (R). Random House refused to publish her essay pointing to the ominous parallels between the National Socialist platform penned by Hitler in 1920 and verbiage contained in the Democratic Party platform and JFK speeches. She fired that publisher.** By her lights, Goldwater’s Republican candidacy was sufficient proof that God’s Own Prohibitionists–whatever their other faults–were not out to exterminate Judaism to please the Lutherans and Catholics. In actual fact Goldwater was nominated because the Republican Party was certain the Dems would win that 1964 election, so the empty gesture cost them nothing.

Literate and rational persons who have read the National Socialist program Hitler penned in 1920, his 1924 Mein Kampf, or the 1933 Enabling Act speech to the Reichstag find religious conservative beliefs on just about every page. Germany was 98% Protestant and Catholic when Hitler took office amid applause. Big Pharma needed a belligerent madman to terrify foreign regulators seeking to curb German morphine exports and collect war reparations payments. If Germany’s political leader also frightened pharmaceutical competitors, so much the better. Hitler just happened to suit the purposes of military contractors and drug companies, and the crowds loved him.

It is a safe bet that neither Trump nor his competitors have ever read the NSDAP program which got the National Socialist party in power by 1933. Nazis, Democrats and Republicans all believe that altruism is good. They believe this not from fact, but because of a preacher invented approximately 1968 years ago by primitives writing in a language none of them can read or speak. The folk legend of an altruist purported to have been executed a century and a half earlier than the first mention of his existence suffices to establish altruism and sacrifice as the standard of value for all three parties.

Small wonder then that all three platforms are so similar. But the Democratic platform more closely resembles Norman Thomas’ christian socialism than Adolf Hitler’s version of the same thing. The Republican platform incorporates more German ideology and eugenics than does the Democratic version. But “both” parties (along with all the looter parties of Europe, Asia and Africa) seek to install themselves somewhere on a line extending from Stalinist international socialism on the “left” to Hitlerite nationalsocialism on the “right.” All parties based on altruism and the initiation of force seek to occupy the political predicament of Poland in 1939. The idea of measuring their published platforms’ demands for violence against individual rights and economic freedom on two intersecting axes shocks intellectuals of the looter persuasion.

The result is that large areas of Germany and Austria are even NOW evacuated because of bombs dropped there in the 1940s. Yet no one there understands that those bombs were dropped because of Germanys literal commitment to altruism, sacrifice and the initiation of force.

Orwell’s 1984 was a paean against cowardly acceptance of the Hitler-Stalin Pact on the part of British snobs. Its message is manifestly misunderstood by British and American readers just as the message of those bombs is evaded by Austrians and Germans. That situation is fast changing, thanks to the law-repealing power of Libertarian spoiler votes. Here is a hockey stick depicting the resurgence of reason and choice at the expense of superstition and force.

Dry killers, Canada and Prosperity

In 1930, as the economy began to freeze and die, Hollywood actresses had withdrawal sickness, dry agents shot people and poisons paralyzed and blinded Americans while religious fanatics swore that shoot-first prohibitionism brings wealth. History shows us that coercion brings poverty, and that the wealth of individuals and nations is a function of the absence of coercion: in other words, freedom.

Yes the British Prime Minister thought American prohibition was a good thing for England. The British were exporting heroin to China until 1911, when the revolution put a stop to that. Soon the heroin-exporting countries went to war to escape ratification of a Hague antiopium convention and grab each others’ markets in Africa and elsewhere. American prohibition, brought on in part by reaction to the drug glut that added morphine to liquor, turned out a bonanza not just for corn sugar and yeast producers, but also purveyors of hemp, barbiturates, beer and moonshine… oh! and heroin. The Canadian province of Ontario tried briefly to coerce people with prohibition, but the resulting gunfights, murders, bribery, fraud, economic instability and corruption promptly brought repeal of that altruistic experiment.

A similar thing occurred in the 1960s. with world population headed for a Malthusian disaster, Republicans and their fanatical remoras sought to keep birth control pills, condoms, diaphragms and such illegal and banned from the government postal monopoly. That effort failed and the second derivative of the population curve changed sign. Canadians in 1968 tried to legalize pregnancy termination. The effort failed but the silence imposed by the Comstock Law of 1873 and its imitations was broken; the little boy shouted that the Pope had no clothes on!

By 1971 the Libertarian party formed, despite Nixon subsidies to the entrenched military-industrial-kleptocracy. The LP platform featured a woman for veep. When Victoria Woodhull tried to run for the top post in 1872 she was immediately arrested by men with guns. But in 1972 the LP got a single electoral vote out of more than 500 cast–in the middle of Supreme Court hearings on Roe v. Wade. To protect their Republican from its own fanatical infiltrators, the justices struck down Dixiecrat coathanger abortion laws under the Amendment that secures rights for “All persons born…” and Canada again rose to the defense of individual rights for women. There are no Comstock or coathanger abortion laws in Canada at all. Canada has a libertarian party complete with law-changing spoiler votes.

Spoiler Vote Clout

Dokuro-Chan, the Bludgeoning Angel

The invisible hand of economics is clearly discernible on the Canada’s Atlantic seaboard. Newfoundland, a haven for smugglers like the nearby French Island of St Pierre-Miquelon, still has a dry law on the shelf to keep local smugglers in fighting trim. Once Americans discovered prohibition was a marketing tool for politicians, lawyers, corn sugar and yeast magnates, they came after those perpetrators with blood in their eyes. Now would be a good time to do again take political power down a notch, before another faith-addled Republican again dismembers the economy for Comstock Sharia law and Blue laws.

Voting libertarian defeats the worst looter party candidates and tell the survivors to back off on sumptuary laws, asset forfeiture, taxation and interfering with electrical generation and the internet. That’s clout. That’s winning!

The Alexander Hamilton card

Islam is dry

Pauline Sabine

Alexander Hamilton crafted arguments in favor of adopting the Constitution of the United States to replace the Articles of Confederation. The Federalist was a pamphlet series in which those appeals were circulated.

Of special importance is Federalist #78, concerned with the design of the Judicial Branch. In it he argues that the judicial branch offers safeguards against “occasional ill humors” liable to cause the “injury of the private rights of particular classes of citizens, by unjust and partial laws.” Moving on to the heart of the matter, Hamilton urged:

Here also the firmness of the judicial magistracy is of vast importance in mitigating the severity and confining the operation of such laws. It not only serves to moderate the immediate mischiefs of those which may have been passed, but it operates as a check upon the legislative body in passing them; who, perceiving that obstacles to the success of iniquitous intention are to be expected from the scruples of the courts, are in a manner compelled, by the very motives of the injustice they meditate, to qualify their attempts. This is a circumstance calculated to have more influence upon the character of our governments, than but few may be aware of.

Herbert Hoover’s aid and comfort shielded Germany from repayment of war reparations and other debts owed to the countries it had shelled and invaded–and to fools who offered them loans. Hoover’s Moratorium on Brains was a crime against the U.S. Constitution. Under the US 14th Amendment–the one that protects women’s right to choose–those debts would “not be questioned.” But the Prohibition Amendment had altered the Constitution into an instrument for the initiation of force. The Prohibition Party had changed America the way the National Socialist party was affecting Germany, likewise a 98% Catholic and Protestant nation. This was accomplished with 1.4% of the vote in 11 political campaigns.

The Supreme Court had given legitimacy to the nation’s domination by mystical fanatics whose laws made light beer a federal felony.  Its imprimatur was stamped on the Minnesota Congressman Andrew Volstead’s enforcement act. The Court had explained, in it’s decision that Dred Scott, a brown person, was not entitled to the rights of citizenship, and that the Fugitive Slave Act demanded his deportation into slavery under “the present Constitution of the United States.” That 1857 Constitution gave way to one abolishing slavery while smuggling deficit spending into the 14th Amendment–Red Republicans saw to that!

But Hamilton never counted on “domination by religious fanatics” in the place of “ocasional ill humors.”  It took the Liberal Party platform, the American Association Against the Prohibition Amendment and Pauline Sabin, leader of  the Women’s Organization for National Prohibition Reform to wrest power from the hands of the Prohibition Party-Klan-Republican Axis of Evil and repeal Prohibition.   That voter resolve came from the realization that Prohibition collapsed the economy, just as it did again in 1987 and again in 2007!

A vote for the Libertarian Party is worth 6 to 6000 votes wasted on the looter Kleptocracy. Same goes for your dollar donations. Green card holders are allowed to donate money to the Libertarian Party as well.

Mentation and Malingering

Positive Christianity, Altruism, Duty

Painter of churches, Jesus and Madonnas honored

We imagine we understand malingering–at least until, upon reflection, the concept turns up surprises. Feigning illness or injury to avoid physical labor is the familiar meme. But what about feigning injury, outrage, condescension, pity, insanity or disbelief in order to avoid the necessity of thinking? “That can’t be right” is a wishful reply made by many a fool whose lunch tab added up to more cash than he carried. Other instances are not so trivial.

Mental malingering is the most popular form of self-deception engaged in by altruists of both the “left” and “right.”
Those that describe themselves as “conservative” commit thought-malingering no less assiduously others who, with equal smugness, describe themselves as “left-wing.”

Take the bell in the picture. No conservative can look at it and simultaneously realize that Adolf Hitler represented most of the voters in 98% Christian Germany. Yet every religious conservative defends at least half of Hitler’s 1920 National Socialist platform. Conservatives manage this by never reading the original, and imagining in its place some egotistical writings of a socialist atheist “madman.” Germany’s mystics engaged in the same self-deception. The fairly recent hagiography movie of Sophie Scholl (of The White Rose student protest group) injected gratuitous lines to depict Positive Christian National Socialists as virtually identical to Bolshevik atheists. Even the flyers for which these students were put to death specifically referred to Christian National Socialist Policies as “atheistic.” No religious conservative–German or American–can bear to admit that Adolf Hitler ran a christian religious conservative government complete with transfer payments from producers to non-producers and eugenics policies to build the “New Race” of Herbert Hoover’s inaugural speech..

Similarly, left wing socialists, communists and anti-industrial collectivists deny that Hitler was a socialist–a fact known to everyone on the planet before 1939.  But they do join mystical conservative bretheren in denying absolutely that there is anything altruistic about the National Socialist belief in “The Common Good Before the Individual Good.”
Looters of the bureaucratic persuasion swear hotly, loudly and vehemently that every communist government was “not really” socialist. This appeal to volume or carpet-biting is another form of malingering to avoid mentation.

The common ground both altruist factions share is the proof-by-insistence that there is something good about altruism and sacrifice. But to this day none have stepped forward to explicitly state what it is. What they do agree on, as a sort of corrolary Revelation or belief, is that the initiation of force must also be defended against all comers as the end-all Final Solution to all problems real or imaginary. What is clear–especially after demonstrations at Alamogordo, Hiroshima and Nagasaki–is that unsuperstitious science has retaliatory capabilities that have made the wholesale initiation of force as suicidal as its proponents have always wished it could be.

Freeze, freon or freedom?

FREEZE… AND SURRENDER!

Erde Politische Arbeiterpartei

Huxley conditioning, not Orwellian brainwashing

Only America was “morally” required to violate its Second Amendment, disarm and surrender to Soviet Altruria before and during the 1980s. The Union of Confused Scientists, Physicians for Socialist Responsibility, Freeze advocates, those same pro-socialist, fifth-column infiltrators soon claimed penguins would roast unless freon were banned. Now that real freon is banned and air conditioners are failing as a consequence, they swear the world is heating up. Yet thermometers say the opposite. Why?

Remember the War on Freon? This was based on the superstition that humans–8/9 of whom live in the climactically different northern hemisphere–are to blame for a thinner ozone layer hovering over a constantly-erupting volcano in the southern hemisphere–where only 11% of humanity lives. The volcano, Mt Erebus, spews chlorine into the atmosphere near the south pole, and has done so for over a million years. Bozos and political scientists report no such hole at the pole nearest where 89% of industrial humanity lives and works. (Oddly enough, there is no such volcano at the North Pole either).

Freon–the coolant that replaced poisonous refrigerator gases fatal to housewives in the 1930s–was sacrificed on the Congressional Altar of the lobbyists and Volcano Gods in Crash year 1987. Freon was made a quasi-illegal controlled substance, regulated by force and priced out of reach. Real freon was replaced with an inferior coolant requiring much higher pressures. Home and auto air conditioners running the new coolant nobody would buy willingly, promptly began failing.

The manly and honest response is to look at ozone readings taken before and after the War on Freon. Those two Octobers–during the 1987 Crash and in just before Americans voted against banning energy in 2016–show no appreciable change to the ozone layer. But go ahead and view time-lapse videos and compare other years. But facts don’t matter, hence every man, woman and child in America–and in the world that once regarded Americans as scientific–has been forced at gunpoint to buy the clumsy substitute. Worse: all are now threatened with a tax on air and an additional ban on electric power stations by the same looter ideologues.

Neither the Democratic (or CPUSA) nor Republican (or Prohibition) parties have ever admitted error, and their looters in the House and Senate won’t either. Enter the tangled web of global warming deceit to cover up the discomfort you feel as electric bills rise and your air conditioner fails expensively. If you want an alternative that is non-totalitarian you can make your preference felt by voting Libertarian.

By deliberately altering or cherrypicking NOAA thermometer records to make the past appear cooler and the present warmer, the temperature trend reverses the sign of its slope. This handily provides Congress with an alibi for the failure-prone AC units it sold us at gunpoint because of the War on Freon hysteria. As icing on the let-’em-eat-cake, a whole new hobgoblin has been created from which the ignorant and superstitious now clamor to be led to safety. The hobgoblin, designed by the same Anti-Industrial-Revolution Luddites, is Global Warming–the official Staat religion of Econazi Germany. The icing? Global Warming hysteria makes real cooling climate change feel like warming because your air conditioning is failing and costing you a fortune!

Canadian Liberals and American Libertarians

mystical whack job

Libertarian Candidate 2018?

Will the Libertarian Party sacrifice integrity to superstition? 

1968 — Nixon elected, Mi Lai massacre, GOP declares war on plant leaves, entheogens, segregationist American Party advocates War on Plant Leaves, gets 35 electoral votes. No US party published a Comstock law plank to ban or censor birth control that year.

1968 — Prohibition party platform: No greater mistake has ever been made by the American people and their government than the Repeal of Prohibition. (This is the party that controls the GOP as of 1928.)

1969 — Canadian abortion activist Dr. Henry Morgentaler defies the law and opens an abortion clinic in Montreal.

1970 — Morgentaler clinic is raided and physician is charged with several offences. The Gestapo had 27 years earlier arrested Morgentaler for internment in its death camp eugenics program to cleanse humanity of Jewish selfishness and make the World safe for Positive Christianity.

1971 — American Libertarian Party formed by David Nolan, adopts the Non-Aggression Principle. This principle was formulated by Ayn Rand in 1947, as National Socialist eugenics proponents were being hanged at Nuremberg and elsewhere. Richard Nixon signs amendment to IRS Code making transfer payment subsidies via the income tax to entrenched Kleptocracy parties for electioneering in media.

1972 — Pro-choice, pro-defense, Libertarian Party candidates John Hospers and Toni Nathan earn one electoral vote from a state in which barred from the ballot.

1973 — Republican Supreme Court copies and pastes the 1972 Libertarian Party pregnancy plank into its Roe v. Wade decision using the 14th Amendment to secure individual rights for most pregnant women.

1974 — Morgentaler acquitted on abortion charges by Quebec jury, later overturned by Quebec Court of Appeal.

1976 — Prohibition party platform adds plank: We support a Constitutional Amendment to protect the unborn by prohibiting abortion except in those very rare cases where the life of the mother is seriously endangered.

1976 — Canadian Justice Minister orders retrial. Morgentaler acquitted by jury again in September. Newly elected Parti Quebecóis drops all charges.

1976 — Republican party platform copies from Prohibition Party the plank demanding a Prohibition Amendment to force pregnant women to reproduce by coercing physicians at gunpoint.

1980 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment.

1984 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment.

1988 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Declares “All persons born…” in 14th Amendment really means “All ova fertilized…” Supreme Court of Canada strikes down all laws restricting that individual right of women.  Goodthinkful Republican party politicians struggle to evade this decision as thoughtcrime.

1992 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Seeks Mussolini-precedent Lateran Treaty powers to force children in government schools to recite prayers.

1996 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Declares its support for Religious Mercantilism by calling it [get this!] “free-market Capitalism,” promises 5th Amendment protection against Asset-Forfeiture looting (except where prohibitionism enters the picture).

2000 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Demands formation of Junior Anti-Sex League and additional laws to coerce pubescent teens. 2001, George Bush Jr. signs Executive Order subsidizing infiltration of federal government by faith-based mystical organizations, as in the Mohammedan countries.

2004 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Expands demands to export prohibition of individual rights of women (and everyone else) to UN, advocates interference in international organizations to pressure them into coercing physicians who provide healthcare to women. Asset-forfeiture prohibitionism ramps up to wholesale armed robbery by men with government guns.

2008 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment. Demands protection by mock trial (not international law) of troops ordered to bomb civilians in Mohammedan countries. Economy collapses under weight of prohibitionist asset-forfeiture looting.

2012 — Recycled republican candidate Gary Johnson promises to try to overturn Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision. Gets 3 million fewer votes than he got after dropping that dumb idea.

2016 — Republican platform demands Abortion Prohibition Amendment by retasking 5th Amendment to coerce physicians instead of ban asset-forfeiture looting. Libertarian party infiltrated by Republican prohibitionists, platform edited to add faith-based straddle plank. Rights-violating republican infiltrator nearly nominated by LP. Democratic party platform seeks to make electricity as abundant and affordable in Continental United States as in Puerto Rico.  </history>

2018 — ??
Scenario 1: Mystical prohibitionist Republicans take over LP
the way the Prohibition Party assimilated the GOP in 1928, and the People’s Party swallowed the Democrats in 1896–to back a Prohibition Amendment declaring women are not “persons born” and assert that the 5th Amendment legalizes asset forfeiture looting.
Scenario 2 — Libertarian Party maintains its integrity, sheds good-faith-based imprecations and defends the individual rights of all women, as in Canada. LP advocates a constitutional amendment protecting the freedom of production and trade, replaces GOP like Whigs replaced Federalists and were themselves mowed down by Red Republicans in 1860.

The Supreme Court tried backing Prohibitionist superstition in 1920, but when that brought about a depression worse than the one from the 1894 income tax (for which the Prohibition Party incorrectly claims credit), the Court learned. The 1973 US Supreme Court decision has since assured women all over the planet that they are individuals with rights. Christian National Socialists and Mohammedan Sharia Law fanatics object to any kind of individual rights–especially if applicable to women, blacks, latinos… So what? Superstition is dwindling and has few spoiler votes to cast. Libertarians have four million spoiler votes. Our vote share looks like this measured hockey stick graph:

Superstition from 1928 on the other hand…

Which will it be? Robert Heinlein, Ayn Rand, H.L. Mencken, David Nolan, John Hospers, Toni Nathan? or the Klan, Prohibition Party, Anthony Comstock, Herbert Hoover, Joe McCarthy, Harry Anslinger, Dick Nixon and the Bush Dynasty? Free minds and free markets or Republican Blue laws, Democrat Kristallnacht laws and Mohammedan Sharia law?

If you need laws and court decisions translated, why not get a bid from a libertarian translator?
