Opposition party spokesman Styx

Exploiting the wishful self-deception of frustrated National Socialists has evidently become an attractive enough source of income to attract hepcats willing to stoop for easy pickings. The message is the usual litany of tu quoque and turgid accusations against lengthy rolls of dramatis personae. In other words, the usual serving of Nationalsocialist hot buttons with pauper foreigners instead of communists and wealthy mixed-economy parasites instead of stock-exchange Jewry. Appeals to Jesus are not as frequent as Hitler’s and the fascist penchant for pointing guns at women’s clinics is sidestepped and suppressed at every opportunity. By miscopying several tangential libertarian talking points, people like Tarl and Alex Jones color their performances with enough faux-libertarian mimicry to reassure Republican and Army of God dupes that they have a better understanding of freedom and coercion than libertarians–let alone godless atheist objectivists.

A side effect of these cheap imitations is that the semiliterate communist and cultured looter intelligentzia both have an easier time convincing THEIR dupes that libertarians are girl-bullying, Comstockist, book-burning, ku-klux lynch mobsters of the sort that voted in Bush & Bush2, yet failed to saddle us with McCain and Harridan or Mitt and Whutzisface. Real libertarians, these prophets assert, vote to send men to point guns at doctors and nurses at women’s clinics and to kick in the door and shoot dogs, kids and other occupants who might otherwise use the wrong kind of plant leaf. Why? Because all the things they predicted Clinton and Obama wanted to do, the other half of the force-initiating Kleptocracy are about to do–if God’s Own Prohibitionists don’t win–are much worse. Fascism’s a lesser evil, hence a Greater Good, got that? It doesn’t matter that Obama didn’t boil missionary children the way Republican National Socialists prophesied. None of the things Hitler said about Jews ever happened either, but the NSDAP went from a Gary-Johnson-like 3% to nearly half the total vote. Enough to jail their opponents and justify nuking those same duped voters had they not killed themselves in the nick of time

To make the theatrics more convincing, Comstockist republicans and communist anarchists have quietly infiltrated the Libertarian Party since 1980.(link) This is easily seen by comparing the original 1972 and 1976 platforms with current editions. Easily seen, that is, if you can find an authentic Libertarian Party platform. Here’s the April 2021 search result on a Kleptocracy site: (link) This is in keeping with the publication of National Party Platforms in 1972, listing every Kleptocracy, communist, socialist and prohibition platform since 1840, but NOT the 1972 Libertarian platform which the U. of Illinois Press disparaged and elided from its published compilation. An exhaustive inner search turns up this version NOT findable via Google: (1972 link)

Words in the Libertarian Party Platform

1980s platforms were soon swelled and contaminated with “Children’s Rights” (Child Prostitution, Molesting) planks that have not yet been deleted entirely.(link) Instead, voters are told to pretend they aren’t there. In 1992, after George Holy War Bush demanded the death sentence for some plant leaves and was ousted for senility, the LP platform was a rambling 12,435 words amounting to an hour and 20 minutes of boredom. A resumption of glossolalian tendencies in 2004 brought an apposite reaction and in 2008 the platform was again terse, even if unattractive to the female half of the electorate. Women were twice attracted to the party that wrote the Roe v Wade decision and handed it to the Supreme Court. So if clowns, anarchists, fascists, con artists and impostors are able to impersonate and infiltrate the LP–even mine it for enemy votes and donations like so many brood parasites, we have only our own Platform Committee to blame.(link)

The communist anarchist interpretation of the objectivist Non-Aggression Principle is non-sequitured into a demand that infected cattle, terrorists, foreign comandos and peasants fleeing Republican-exported economic collapse must enter uninspected into These Sovereign States.(link) That suggestion was entered into the platform as soon as The Kleptocracy realized that our 4 million spoiler votes had shifted way more than enough votes to change the outcome.(link) All Tarl and Alex have to do is fulminate against such treasonous gibberish and The Kleptocracy is free to kick in doors, confiscate your car and home for no reason and nobody will say a word. Another new plank calls for keeping the government out of the death sentence, presumably so good faith Army of God vigilantes can have a free hand killing individuals and not even face a hanging.

The brutal murder of any number of handcuffed black gentlemen is waved away by waving a throwdown coroner’s report saying the victim was actually walking-dead before the First Responder™ crushed his throat–settled science. Self-deception enables Tarl to imagine anyone actually believes the throwdown report. Women who watched news of Robert Dear murdering people at a Planned Parenthood wouldn’t vote differently if the fabrication were exposed and admitted in writing. Republicans (Trump, Judge Amy, Linseed Graham Cracker, Ted Hakencreuz and Congressharridan Greene-Teeth) want people like Robert Dear to coerce them with loaded guns on behalf of Their Invisible Friend. THAT settled the issue and also settled the outcome of the election. Inventing invisible vote fraud is the self-deception of bullies that just got their butts whipped by a bunch of girls, nothing more. Tarl and Alex helped elect Biden and also to undermine long-term support for peaceful non-aggression. They must be proud.

Lysander Spooner’s oath

It seems like it has to be fiction, right? Wrong! (link)

Spooner wrote: Go to A….. B……, and say to him that “the government” has need of money to meet the expenses of protecting him and his property.  If he presumes to say that he has never contracted with us to protect him, and that he wants none of our protection, say to him that that is our business, and not his; that we choose to protect him, whether he desires us to do so or not; and that we demand pay, too, for protecting him.  If he dares to inquire who the individuals are, who have thus taken upon themselves the title of “the government,” and who assume to protect him, and demand payment of him, without his having ever made any contract with them, say to him that that, too, is our business, and not his; that we do not choose to make ourselves individually known to him; that we have secretly (by secret ballot) appointed you our agent to give him notice of our demands, and, if he complies with them, to give him, in our name, a receipt that will protect him against any similar demand for the present year. 

The original law passed by Republicans reads:  “I, A.B., do swear, or affirm, (as the case may be,) that I will, to the best of my knowledge, skill and judgment, diligently and faithfully execute the office and duties of assessor for, (naming the assessment district,) without favor or partiality, and that I will do equal right and justice in every case in which I shall act as assessor.” And a certificate of such oath or affirmation shall be delivered to the collector of the district for which such assessor or assistant assessor shall be appointed. And every assessor or assistant assessor acting in the said office without having taken the said oath or affirmation shall forfeit and pay $100, one moiety thereof to the use of the United States, and the other moiety thereof to him who shall first sue for the same; to be recovered, with costs of suit, in any court having competent jurisdiction.


Section 12. And be it further enacted, That the Secretary of the Treasury shall establish regulations suitable and necessary for carrying this act into effect; which regulation shall be binding on each assessor and his assistance in the performance of the duties enjoined by or under this act, and shall also frame instructions for the said assessors and their assistance; pursuant to which instructions the said assessors shall, on the first day of March next, direct and cause the several assistant assessor’s in the district to inquire after and concerning all lands, lots of ground, with their improvements, buildings, and dwelling houses, made liable to taxation under this act by reference as well as to any lists of assessment or collection taken under the laws of the respective States, as to any other records or documents, and by all other lawful ways and means, and to value and enumerate the said objects of taxation in the manner prescribed by this act, and in conformity with the regulations and instructions above-mentioned.…

The second part or the original law reads:

Section 52. And be it further enacted, that should any of the people of any of the States or Territories of the United States, or the District of Columbia be in actual rebellion against the authority of the government of the United States at the time this act goes into operation, so that the laws of the United States cannot be executed therein, it shall be the duty of the president, and he is hereby authorized, to proceed to execute the provisions of this act within the limits of such State or Territory, or District of Columbia, so soon as the authority of the United States therein is reestablished, and to collect the sums which would have been due from the persons residing or holding property or stocks therein, with the interest due, at the rate of 6% (him thereon until paid in the manner and under the regulations prescribed in the foregoing in the foregoing sections of this act. 

This Spooner translated from vague, political legalese to the vernacular:

If he refuses to comply, seize and sell enough of his property to pay not only our demands, but all your own expenses and trouble beside.  If he resists the seizure of his property, call upon the bystanders to help you (doubtless some of them will prove to be members of our band).  If, in defending his property, he should kill any of our band who are assisting you, capture him at all hazards; charge him (in one of our courts) with murder, convict him, and hang him.  If he should call upon his neighbors, or any others who, like him, may be disposed to resist our demands, and they should come in large numbers to his assistance, cry out that they are all rebels and traitors; that “our country” is in danger; call upon the commander of our hired murderers; tell him to quell the rebellion and “save the country,” cost what it may.  Tell him to kill all who resist, though they should be hundreds of thousands, and thus strike terror into all others similarly disposed.  See that the work of murder is thoroughly done; that we may have no further trouble of this kind hereafter.  When these traitors shall have thus been taught our strength and our determination, they will be good loyal citizens for many years, and pay their taxes without a why or a wherefore.  

These were the exigencies of the war to preserve the Customs Union so that a Protective Tariff could smother competition from European or Canadian makers of plows, scythes, hoes, chains, knives, rope, bridles, bits and farm implements in general and allow Yankee manufacturers to set prices without fear of being undercut. Slavery had nothing to do with it except to preserve the backward colonial hub of the metropole-colony engine for enriching the nouveau Metropole of New England. The first Tariff of Abominations brought the threat of secession and federal coercion. The Morrill Tariff of 1860 made it reality and sparked the War Between The States.

Placed under oath

I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man
Nor ask another man to live for mine.

Question for the late Jon Roland, of Constitutionalism…

Article 6, paragraph 3 of the Constitution states: “but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

On several occasions I have had judges try to put me under oath to work as an officer of the court by asking me to perform to specifications “so help me God.” When I reply that “yes, I will interpret faithfully and accurately with or without help,” I am sometimes questioned, even pressured, to endorse something or someone nobody cares to define or produce evidence of, to act as my assistant

If a judge were to administer an oath endorsing other, equally mysterious helpers such as Allah, Bob, Thor, Minerva, Ra or Krishna, I would bet money and lay odds that the requirement would not pass unchallenged. Indeed, Mennonites and Amish congregants have some sort of objection to oaths per se, and are granted the option of affirming instead, but this sidesteps the issue of helpers lacking tangible credentials or ID being appointed by a particular judge, with those appointments confirmed by a court interpreter acting under what is tantamount to duress or intimidation. 

My question is this: Is there case law or jurisprudence to the effect that interpreters may be required to endorse “God” to assist us in performing interpreting work under oath? 

If there is I would very much like to challenge any such outcome based on the Thirteenth Amendment ban on slavery or involuntary servitude–at least until such time as God is verifiably paid by the courts for assisting in the performance of interpreting services rendered–and taxed on that legal income by the IRS. It hardly seems fair to drag someone into court to work for free as a helper to someone else who is actually getting paid.

Jon replies…

Is there case law or jurisprudence to the effect that interpreters may be required to endorse “God” to assist us in performing interpreting work under oath?

Not at the level of the U.S. Supreme Court, and they are not a proper part of any lawful oath of office. George Washington added the words “so help me God” to his oath, as was commonly done, but that is a gloss, not a requirement, and many sects, such as Quakers, protested enough that it was not an oversight to leave the words out of the Constitution.

Did you know that a witness, though he may be compelled to testify, may not be compelled to take an oath? That means that any false testimony would not be subject to the law of perjury, although it might be to the law of fraud. Traditionally, judges instructed juries to weigh that in considering unsworn testimony, which has not been uncommon in a country where many are not devotees of an Abrahamic faith.

All persons with sworn duties in court, including witnesses, are officers of the court, which is the entire assembly, not just the presiding officer, the judge, who only speaks for the court. Anyone may raise an objection, and should be allowed to participate in argument, not just the attorneys. The rules of parliamentary procedure were developed alongside the rules of courts and a court is just one kind of deliberative assembly.
