DemoGOP politicians were trying to keep contraceptives illegal in 1968

How Gary Johnson’s party alienated women voters:

Judges should be appointed who will interpret the Constitution according to its original meaning. Any court decision that does not follow this original meaning of the Constitution should be revisited. That is particularly true of decisions such as Roe vs. Wade, which have expanded the reach of the Federal government into areas of society never envisioned in the Constitution. With the overturning of Roe vs Wade, laws regarding abortion would be decided by the individual states. (Gary Johnson campaign, 2012)

Of the three Libertarian candidates left standing at the convention, one was a recycled Republican indifferent to the individual rights of women (Johnson). Another was an antichoice Republican infiltrator bent on making the initiation of force to violate rights a Libertarian policy (Petersen). The third (McAfee) was a pro-choice newcomer in his first half-year of membership who enjoyed the persona of a loose cannon.

The 2016 candidate spread is evidence of gradual infiltration by surplus mystical bigots of the sort now populating the Tea and Consta2shun parties–spoiler vote holdouts for another religious autocracy in violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments. The result has been a crippled semi-Libertarian party, fully 2/3 male earning 3% of the vote–but with way more than half the potentially sympathetic electorate mostly alienated.

Ask yourself how you would feel if some ex-GOP “Libertarian” candidate were to smugly suggest defunding the Center for Disease control and auctioning off all vaccination and epidemic control programs to corporate bidders? The program looks less like government handouts when men are also exposed to the unplanned need for medical intervention.

Never forget that the Italian Fascist and German National Socialist parties were deeply religious organizations. But Jewish voters were a tiny minority in Germany, Austria and Italy in 1933. Non-geriatric women voters in These United States amount to well over half the electorate.

The Libertarian Party was the first viable party to feature a woman vice-presidential candidate. Tonie Nathan, a founding LP member who defends individual rights (choice) for women. The Libertarian Party won a rational electoral vote on December 19, and the Supreme Court smartly decided in Roe v. Wade that women were in fact individuals with the right to make their own choices–even if pregnant–on January 22, 1973. Time elapsed between the vote and the Supreme Court decision was 31 days.

The 1972 Libertarian Party plank on women’s rights read as follows: 

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

Yes it is true that post isn’t exactly propter. “All men are mortal” was once an untested hypothesis. But by logical induction understood by all but the most superstitious of mystics the generalization became a factual premise upon which valid conclusions may be rigorously drawn. But election campaigns are statistical affairs. Both of the looter parties seeking to install their tools and puppets on the government payroll with a hand in the till understood that infringing the individual rights of all female voters would be a really stupid thing to do. Even Germany and Italy learned the hard way that mystical demagoguery doesn’t pay.

A Supreme Court decision to keep American women at the mercy of state legislatures dictated to by Klavern Christianity was one option facing the Court. But that choice made as much sense in 1973 as the 1932 Republican decision to keep light beer and wine a federal felony with a 5-year prison sentence and $10,000 (gold) fine.

As a result of the Republican party selling out the voters, backing instead the Wizened Christian Temperance Union, Anti-Saloon League and Methodist White Terror, Democrats were elected to the top offices in 1932, 1936, 1940, 1944 and 1948. There was the stark result of that one episode of pandering to the demagogues of the coercive imposition of Comstock Laws embodying the mandates of mystical beliefs.

The pre-urinalysis GOP was still smarting in 1973, having in the previous 40 years been defeated in 71% of all presidential campaigns since siding with the Klan and its dry cohort against “The Demon Rum.” New York repealed its liquor prohibition law in 1923, and “Whiskey” Al Smith–the NY Governor who had signed the bill into law–became the Democratic Party’s 1928 candidate. In 1970 New York–flanked by Hawaii and DC–repealed the most onerous of its antichoice legislation.  Nine male political appointees saw the handwriting on the wall, and on Roe v. Wade sided with Constitutional freedom rather than the coercive imposition of religious practices.

The Canadian Abortion Rights Action League, organized six months later, successfully pressed for repeal of ALL antiabortion laws there. More women than men have annually emigrated to Canada since its government began enforcing the individual rights of all women.  While consistent with the current published platform of the Libertarian Party, Canada’s total repeal went to the logical conclusion that follows from our Fourteenth Amendment’s introductory premise that NO State may enforce laws infringing the rights of

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof…

That is the line in the sand the Libertarian Party must again draw by deleting all of the “good faith” Vichy Plank language dictated by the shrinking remnants of dogmatized Prohibitionist infiltrators. In looter party platforms, “good faith” is invariably a pretext for overlooking violations of the Bill of Rights. The current “Vichy” plank is a cowardly reproach and stands as a monument to betrayal of the individual rights of fully half the population of These United States of America.

Small wonder women voters looked elsewhere in 2012 and 2016. But they discovered that the Democratic party was about pseudoscience and the banning of electrical power generation, rather than the competent defense of individual rights. It is a safe bet that educated women voters will not repeat that mistake. We must by then offer them a clear alternative–a party eager to turn their spoiler votes into political clout that will admit of no spurious interpretation–by November of 2020.

The libertarian party needs pro-choice female candidates to help rid us of the invasion of “former” religious bigots.

Income Tax, Manifesto Plank 2, 1913

incometax1913p13America’s third income tax arrived, armed and dangerous, in 1913. Here’s how it was received at the time.
Boston Evening Transcript April 15, 1913
INCOME TAX ABSURDITIES  [From the Baltimore Star Rep.]
No matter what may be the Individual attitude toward the income tax as a simple proposition, the section of the new tariff bill which embodies this employment of a war-time measure in the midst of peace is full of absurdities which, it is to be hoped, will be eliminated before the bill reaches the White House.

The requirement that employers shall withhold from employees the proportion of salaries required to be paid as income tax, and thus become responsible for their employees’ compliance with the law, is open to great objection. It infers (implies) that the employee is not himself sufficiently honest or responsible to take care of his own relation to the taxing power, and thus does serious injustice to a large class of salaried people. The man who is capable of earning as a salaried employee more than $4000 a year is usually a man of principle and responsibility, quite as capable of dealing fairly with the Government as the man who draws his income from stocks and bonds or a personal share in a business.

This human necessity of providing for the investigation of questionable returns shows how much of an invasion of private affairs this tax will allow. Its enforcement will be a source of scandal and annoyance and doubtless of much unfairness. It will encourage evasion and subterfuge and the withdrawal of funds from healthy enterprises to take advantage of the special classes of investment which are exempted. In its train will come many evils of a serious nature. It involves a more serious menace to the party assessing it than any other governmental measure in contemplation. ***

SO what was going on in the world as the US government fastened this vampire tax on citizens? 

China–desperate to rid the nation of foreign dumping of poppy sap chemicals–had completely dismantled and replaced its government in 1911, and repercussions fanned outward. Republican President Yuan called the poppy the “all-destroying weed!”  In January of 1912, an election year, Congress overrode President Taft’s veto to make it a federal felony to transport alcoholic beverages into ku-klux-dry territory (as most of the Southern states had enacted prohibition).  Corn Products Refining, flagship of The Glucose Trust–doing for America’s home distillation what the British East India Company did for opium addicts in China–was named in a criminal information in an Illinois district court. A ban on “foreign” alcohol provided protection from competition for corn sugar, the ethanol precursor chemical.

Persia, on signing the Hague Opium Convention, signed with reservations about helping to enforce Chinese opium prohibition. This growing Hague Convention was a direct threat to France, Great Britain, and to the Prussia-Austria-Germany axis refining morphine from opium produced in the Balkans. That entire region was already breaking out in scattered warfare–and a naval arms race between Germany and England gained momentum. Montenegro declared war on the opium-producing Ottoman Empire in the fall, so a global opium war became inevitable. In 1912 an assassin tried to shoot the King of Italy, and another shot and wounded former President Theodore Roosevelt. These things were almost routine.

George Orwell’s father, Richard Walmesley Blair retired to the safety of England after earning promotion to Sub-Deputy Opium Agent, first grade. England had given in to Pressure for the Hague Opium Convention, leaving Germany as the recalcitrant holdout. Germany also manufactured a stimulant, cocaine, which Americans–especially William Jennings Bryan–feared (and Europeans craved) as some sort of sex drug liable to drive down the price of coffee. German pharmaceutical companies were dismayed when–by British suggestion–cocaine was bundled into the Hague Convention as though it had anything in common with opium. Italy pressed for and got the inclusion of Indian hemp drugs. Hemp would only be effectively banned in These States after the legalization of heavily taxed beer and liquor failed to generate enough revenue to satiate the greed of politicians.

Such was the atmosphere as Woodrow Wilson–like T.R. a friend of prohibitionism, also opposed to “private and selfish purposes”–became President. Congress prepared to implement another income tax lifted straight out of the Communist Manifesto of 1848 in anticipation of a global opium war it then knew to be inevitable and imminent.

If you favor legalization of safer enjoyable drugs as harm-reducing competition to weaken the black market in addictive narcotics, consider volunteering or making a donation to your friendly neighborhood Libertarian Party.  The LP is as old today as JFK was when gunned down, and our votes change bad laws.

Subsidized Classroom Elisions

opium06jan1857When the First Opium War became inevitable in 1837, the good ship Orwell was plying the routes between China and Australia. British capital invested was drained out of the United States and poured into the preparations for the Opium War which overrode China’s prohibition against the dumping of narcotics at her ports.

Unequal treaties, signed at gunpoint, banned local cultivation and left China at the mercy of dope exports from India managed by FDR’s grandpa Warren Delano, among others. Converts to Christianity were meanwhile waging a civil war against China from within. Missionaries, admitted under the Treaty of Nanking, provided a handy pretext for military action against Chinese passive resistance. One French Catholic missionary was killed in 1856 for telling the Chinese their religion was heathen superstition, and Catholics and Protestants from opium-peddling countries took time out from killing each other to gang up on the Chinese–even as US Minister Townsend Harris was negotiating treaties with the terrified Japanese. News of renewed aggression against China reached United States newspapers on January 6, 1857. Richard Walmesley Blair, whose son Eric would adopt the pen name George Orwell, was born the following day.

The opium wars not only drained capital from These States, but the resulting glut wreaked financial havoc in India, where by May 1857, Europeans and Christian converts were being hacked to bits in those manifestations of popular displeasure referred to as the “mutiny.” By August, financial panic shuddered across America. By September there were runs on New York banks and government revenues were greatly decreased. No mention of the opium wars sparking the mutiny–or the two developments affecting American finances–appear anywhere in British or American accounts masquerading as history. Yet George Orwell’s father’s job title in India was Assistant Sub-Deputy Opium Agent, third grade. He was part of an organization that oversaw a sixth of the revenue needed to subjugate, dominate, control and overpower all of India and Pakistan at the time.

It is simply assumed that the three three things coexisted by the sheerest coincidence. In much the same manner, the Roosevelt Administration’s Pure Food and Drug Law of 1906, which affected whiskey, glucose and drugs beginning in 1907, simply coincided with the wave of prohibitionism shutting down saloons and ice houses that served beer. Likewise the Hoover Administration’s enforcement of prohibition with light beer a felony and tax liens and bank account seizures as the mechanism simply happened–according to what the historians have published these past 87 years–to coincide with the collapse of the banking system and the Great Depression.

That the Roosevelt family fortune arose out of this transportation of opium into China was probably known to TR and to Herbert Hoover. Hoover was present and under fire in China during the Boxer Rebellion, but kept quiet about his political adversary’s grandpa’s misdeeds while pretending to struggle against the morphine trade that had led to World War I. Yet his Moratorium and fanatical persecution of beer as the Avatar of Satanic Possession did more to promote Adolf Hitler to Chancellor than anything else in the world.

Only after the Republican Party’s prohibitionism, crash and depression had kept them out of the White House for two full decades, did Republican propagandists dare to leak the stories of Warren Delano’s involvement in the opium traffic. Eisenhower was elected, the United States declared a Christian nation, and the word “God” inserted into the Pledge of Allegiance, printed on coins and currency and chiseled into the walls of government buildings in Washington DC. Fear of “atheistic” communist congregants nurtured the flourishing of a powerful military industrial complex whose lobbyists–to Ike’s discomfiture–quickly dominated the United States government and ordered us into Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, Brazil, Columbia, Grenada and Panama, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Finally the remake Bush Administration created the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (White House OFBCI) within the Executive Office of the President. The asset-forfeiture fanaticism inevitably resulting from such a move, again crushed the economy into rubble.

With any luck the Libertarian Party will replace God’s Own Prohibitionists, and These States and a Post-Brexit Pepperland will resume their colorful careers.

Should you require certified translations of financial, energy-related, or agribusiness material–especially contracts–my multinational empire can provide you with a competitive bid for whatever the Fates demand of you.

 

 

Hyperinflation, 1923, 1989

Germany was saddled with making reparations payments for damage she caused in WWI. The cause of that war and the method of raising money with which to pay were intimately intertwined. How?

germansmack12oct1923

German heroin glut

Knowledge of the Opium Wars invariably comes as a surprise to most victims of pre-Internet government schooling. But just before Victoria was crowned Queen of England, China banned opium trading and ordered the traders to leave. Lord Palmerston soon oversaw military operations to force China to repeal its opium prohibition. The war preparations sucked British investment capital out of These States and a depression set in shortly after 1837, when prohibitionist policies in China first affected British commerce.** Modern weapons crushed all resistance and the Chinese were forced not only to legalize the only really addictive drug warranting the nomenclature, but also to pay for the losses suffered by their attackers. This rankled. The Boxer Rebellion was a failed rematch, but the Revolution of 1911 finally restored control of their ports to the Chinese, and the ban produced a huge opium glut affecting the economies of the producing nations–The Balkans.

That almost all the opium containing 12 to 14% morphine is produced between Italy and Turkey is an inconvenient fact handily omitted from government school curricula. Serbia, Montenegro–the entire mountainous area from Slovenia to Bulgaria down to Greece was shot through with opium plots feeding chemical plants in Austria-Hungary and Germany. There, the morphine was extracted and acetylated into patented German Heroin™. Immediately after it became clear Chinese customs agents could no longer be bribed or bullied, price-cutting and competition for dope markets exploded into war in the Balkans, and escalated smoothly into World War I. This too is a surprise to people educated in government-subsidized classrooms, but the mechanism was obvious in the year 1923, when a heroin epidemic in United States called into question the wisdom of the government’s classification of light beer as a felony narcotic per the 18th Amendment. But alcohol prohibition in America was a windfall for the German drug industry. According to The Norwalk Hour:

This country has been a dumping ground for the large quantity of drugs manufactured abroad since the end of the war. And it is against this production of drugs abroad for illicit sale in this country that a movement has now been launched.
Germany, previous to the outbreak of the war, was the chief alkaloid manufacturing country in the world. The supply of morphine, heroin and other alkaloids of opium for the Occident came largely from her factories. In 1915 and thereafter the Allied countries found themselves short of opiates, the medical treatment of hundreds of thousands of wounded having drained surplus stocks the world over. Manufacturing laboratories sprang up. At this time poppy growing in India, Persia and China increased tremendously, and in India it receives governmental encouragement.

There you have a historical recitation of These States suddenly discovering how the Chinese had felt since long before the Civil War.  The parallels with the situation endured by the Celestial Empire continue, for Britain, after losing America, transformed India into an opium farm with an annual output worth $19 million in gold. That entrenched drug market brought England and France (which ran opium regies in Cochin-China) into war with Germany. The war necessitated loan-taking in the USA, whose President Coolidge insisted on October 5 that the loans be repaid. Hence, again, the transfer of British liability to the vanquished, this time Germany. Germany’s reaction was to evade reparations payment by inflating its currency into worthlessness.

Brazil’s inflation during George CIA Bush regime

Why is this relevant? The prohibitionist infiltrators that caused the GO-Pee to try and fail to keep light beer a felony in 1932 never relinquished their hold on the party. During the Reagan-Bush years, when South America was exporting relatively harmless and nonaddictive cocaine to These States and Europe, a flurry of drug testing laws and the exhuming of Herbert Hoover Administration asset-forfeiture legislation triggered a major crash once traders perceived the Depression was inevitable. Like Germany in 1923, Brazil went into hyperinflation, and its president was deposed by impeachment (much like the September, 2016). George Waffen Bush repeated this Herbert Hoover in his second term. Bush’s Executive Orders packed the government with religious fanatics. Together they pushed prohibitionist asset forfeiture of billions, again causing damage to the US and global economies in the trillions of dollars.  Today’s Republican platform reads like Mein Kampf, only with “drug” search-and-replacing “jew” and “America” replacing “Germany” throughout. Both the Republican and Democratic parties disguise the fact that prohibitionist fanaticism by banning beer attracted opiates during prohibition. Prohibition enforcement, caused the Crash and Depression, and Herb Hoover’s policies supported the rise of National Socialism. This led to more war, and finally major Crashes in 1987, and just recently in 2007.

I vote Libertarian secure in the knowledge that there is nothing the other looter party could do that is worse than Republican economic disasters. Furthermore, my LP spoiler vote has 6 to 36 times the law-repealing clout of a vote wasted on the Kleptocracy.
