Looter historians explain away financial panics, crashes, collapses and depressions the way their government sponsors expect them to. After all, who who pays the piper, calls the tune. Governments also pay for the public notices sections in the newspapers, and it pays a pauper paper to please petty politicians. Continue reading
Scott Adams is trained in hypnotism–the techniques teevee stations and newspapers use to gain Nixon tax subsidy payouts for pushing coercive candidates. In the bonus chapter of Win Bigly, Scott observes that:
Liars also use predictable patterns of language that you can pick up once you know what to look for.
For example, if someone accuses an innocent person of a crime, the accused generally responds by immediately denying the accusation and asking what is wrong with you for even asking. But the first reaction of guilty people, usually, is to ask what evidence you have. They need to know what you know so they can either double-down on the lie or confess. Liars only confess if the evidence against them is airtight.
There is airtight evidence that human contributions to an Ozone Hole over Antarctica were a fabrication. Only 1/9 of humanity lives in the Southern Hemisphere, in large part because it is mostly ocean: H2O loaded with sodium chloride. Ozone varies over a volcano that has been erupting constantly for about a million years, spewing chlorine gas into all levels of the atmosphere. Ozone is produced by sunlight which is nearly absent from the South Pole during the winter months of June, July and August. The only thing that has changed since pseudoscientists panicked politicians into banning safe, low pressure freon is that air conditioners break a lot more than they used to.
I would not want to be blamed for this if I had sent men with guns to ban normal AC coolant. The looter media says it’s all your fault and adds some blame for Global Warming (temperatures have decreased steadily since 1930–according to unvarnished temperature readings). Jimmy Carter’s Department of Energy also blames people who buy the mandatory high-pressure ACs, but has recently dropped the Global Warming pretense. Data massagynist politician Al Gore, of course, will say anything to keep you from looking at raw data. If global warming were real, you would expect to lose $4000 replacing your air conditioning system, right? It would seem normal.
Democratic candidate Al Gore lost his home state AND Florida in the Y2k election, when econazi spoiler votes helped perfect the debacle (and worsen all future Democratic party platforms). His party’s plank demanded: “…a strong international treaty to begin combating global warming“; “guarding our children from the summer smog that is made worse by global warming“. That platform swore that “Eight of the ten hottest years ever recorded have occurred during the past ten years. Scientists predict a daunting range of likely effects from global warming.” Puerto Rico showed what happens when clueless voters duped by Climate Fraud rely on subsidized solar panels and windmills for electricity.
Once Realclimatescience.com began publishing graphs of raw, untampered thermometer readings, the prophesying completely fell apart. One gang of data-altering warmunists was ordered out on a Kristallnacht character-assassination denier hunt. The rest got busy with reality control. Reality control in this case is a search-and-replace that finds “
global warming” and replaces it with “climate change,” an expression as chimerical and meaningless as “climate science.” But even that failed, for the 2016 Democratic platform still shrieked of imminent doom from “global warming.”
Okay, but what about the prohibitionist Republicans urging cops to shoot youngsters and dogs, lock up the survivors and confiscate their property through economy-destabilizing asset-forfeiture looting on account of plant leaves? Good point. Here is some of the the Al Gore campaign prohibition plank language for some drugs. This explains why non-libertarians who favor electricity had nothing to lose by backing the Waffen Bush party instead:
DEMOCRAT Platform of 2000: …more police on the streets to thicken the thin blue line between order and disorder, tougher punishments – including the death penalty…
We should send a strong message to every American child: drugs are wrong, and drugs can kill you. We need to dry up drug demand, hold up drugs at the border, and break up the drug rings that are spreading poison on our streets. We should open more drug courts, to speed justice for drug-related crimes; double the number of drug hot-spots where we aggressively target our enforcement efforts; expand drug treatment for at-risk youth; and make sure that all of our school zones are drug-free zones – by stiffening the penalties to those who would use children to peddle drugs, and those who would sell drugs anywhere near our schools. We know that to dry up drug demand, we must provide drug treatment upon demand. To empower communities protect themselves from organized criminal conduct... We should be tough on drugs ….
Drug producing nations like Colombia have seen their societies torn apart by the intersection of criminal activity, political discord, and terrorism. And our nation is also afflicted with the violence and hopelessness of drugs. We must continue to combat narco-traffickers, increasing our budget to do so. We must continue to have a strong Drug Czar who can bring together the considerable resources of the U.S. Government in this effort. We must continue to fight those who make the financing of this effort possible such as the money launderers who facilitate the drug trade. We must continue to work with our friends and allies and international organizations to fight the blood money of the drug trade by getting a handle on those nations who turn a blind eye to the financial end of this problem.
Seen enough? The Democratic party still wants police kicking in doors, shooting innocents, dogs, children and witnesses to echo God’s Own Prohibitionist party’s hatred and fear of plant leaves. This shows how entrenched senile parties will do or say anything in exchange for votes handed over by dupes. The only rational response is to cast a libertarian spoiler vote.

There are ominous parallels between “The Last Man in Europe” (published as “1984”) and “Homage to Catalonia,” which recounted Orwell’s struggles as a militiaman in the Marxist Unification Workers’ Party militia fighting christian fascism (El caudillo de Dios) in Spain. Back before there was any such thing as an aggression-rejecting Libertarian Party, intellectuals had to side with either International or National Socialism. There was no way out of that universe-of-discourse dilemma. Writer Henry Miller was one of the rare famous libertarians rejecting the entire false dichotomy, to Orwell’s shock and dismay. Ayn Rand’s “We the Living“ and “Anthem” and were published in 1936 and 1938, but Orwell managed to ignore her somehow.
Orwell contrasts Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer with a book by Louis-Ferdinand Céline, which was a “protest against the horror and meaninglessness of modern life–actually, indeed, of LIFE.” But Miller’s book “is the book of a man who is happy.” In 1936 Miller “felt no interest in the Spanish war whatever. He merely told me [Orwell] in forcible terms that to go to Spain at that moment was the act of an idiot.”
So what is fascism? Trotsky’s pamphlet offers nothing resembling a definition. Orwell, faced with the same question, likewise produced no definition. Instead, Orwell in 1944 also spouted gibberish to justify evading an objective definition certain to enrage religious fanatics:
“To say why would take too long, but basically it is because it is impossible to define Fascism satisfactorily without making admissions which neither the Fascists themselves, nor the Conservatives, nor Socialists of any colour, are willing to make.” –Orwell, What is Fascism? 1944
Yet the closer one looks at German National Socialism and Spanish, Vichy & Italian fascism, the more their definition converges on simplicity itself:
Fascism, (n.) Religious socialism.
Mussolini signed a treaty with the Pope to bring religious indoctrination into government school classrooms. Franco’s own posters described him as el “Caudillo de Dios,” saluted by the kiddies, and Adolf Hitler–painter of churches, Jesus and Madonnas–passed up no opportunity to exploit Christian altruism as a vehicle for demonizing “selfishness,” meaning all things Jewish and/or laissez-faire (meaning liberal).
During the Spanish revolution, Orwell reported, a sign of anti-religious “leftist” sentiment was the chiseling of religious symbols off of gravestones at the local graveyard. Yet Orwell shied from openly mentioning religiosity as the crucial difference in the late thirties or early forties.
By the 1970s, fans of Robert Heinlein and Ayn Rand were forming the Libertarian Party as an alternative to linear, anti-life ideologies so popular among Europeans. The first Libertarian platform included a plank the Supreme Court copied as its Roe v Wade decision striking down ku klux Comstock laws. Soon politics changed from a one-dementional line to a two-dimensional plane representing the four states available where there are two separate binary switches.
To those who, like King Solomon, recognize freedom from coercion as an indivisible whole, there is no real left or right. Both labels are the result of an assumption that freedom can safely be divided by having the right people commit just enough violence to make things better, provided their motives are altruistic. Whether such credulity is prompted by fear or hatred is irrelevant, for wherever it exists a skilled bipartisan persuader can convince both kinds of altruists that they AND their adversaries are both right, and then increase how much violent coercion is “just enough.”
This has happened in Germany, Austria, Italy, Rumania, Russia and its satellites, Japan, China, Burma, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Venezuela and Ecuador, all mohammedan countries and most African nations at one time or another. All of them started by assuming freedom could be “cut” with just the right amount of coercive aggression, then increased that amount until totalitarian rule became established. Observe that ALL totalitarians criticize as “anarchic” anything that offers more freedom than their armed goons have orders to tolerate. The best hedge against the abyss of totalitarianism is a functioning Libertarian Party.

When one first discovers the Libertarian Party, the biggest surprise is the swarm of anarchists buzzing about the organization. These worthies rarely join and pay dues, to say nothing of making campaign contributions. The overall impression they produce is much the same as that of a swarm of flies–which is precisely the intended effect!
Not that there is anything new about anarchism. One quickly gets a sense of just how flyblown the theory is by searching the Google News Archive for specimens. Here’s one from 1894–the year a small communist party got 9% of the U.S. vote and cowed Congress into tacking Manifesto Plank 2 onto a tariff bill. An aggressor fired a pistol at Italian Premier Crispi, missed twice and was overpowered by his intended victim. A few days later another anarchist social revolutionary shot and killed French president Carnot.
Observe that neither anarchist raised a pistol on the field of honor; both instead ambushed unarmed victims. Crispi’s wannabee assassin, captured by his intended victim, begged for the death sentence. Hanging was deemed too good for him. Carnot’s murderer was decapitated–not without irony–using a good, old-fashioned, Red Terror guillotine. Garfield was shot in the back by a similar political parasite and McKinley’s anarchist murderer carried with him a dog-eared copy of Edward Bellamy’s “Looking Backward” translated into Polish.
The general rule in these cases is that a sort of Transubstantiation occurs as the bullet leaves the barrel, such that the communist aggressor suddenly always was an anarchist. George Orwell illustrated the phenomenon, describing the way communists and nationalsocialists began French-kissing before the ink was dry on the Hitler-Stalin pact. In his novel Nineteen Eighty-four he again stressed how the faithful believed that “Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia.” This is the method of inference that concludes that anarchists “are really” libertarians.
Americans educated in the free market system weren’t susceptible to doublethink. Garfield and McKinley’s assassins were promptly tried and hanged on the tried-and-true theory that dead anarchist madmen did little additional harm. Congress showed showed how little sympathy there was for the anarchist push to decriminalize murder when it passed the Anarchist Exclusion Act in 1903. The Libertarian platform of 2016 contained equivalent language against importing “foreign nationals who pose a credible threat” until hostile (Republican? Anarchist?) infiltrators struck it out.
The idea that an ideology of murdering madmen is compatible with the Libertarian Party is a 2+2=5 equivocation. Membership requires signing the Non-Aggression Principle penned by Ayn Rand in 1947, while hangmen were still busy cutting down murdering altruist National Socialist madmen at Nuremberg and other venues. In 1947 everyone recalled clearly that competition in the forcible restraint of men is War. The Libertarian Party is concerned with freedom and peace. Any argument that our platform is compatible with murder-legalizing anarchism is a division-by-zero error. Yet in Peru and Chile today there are anarchist communists blatantly posing as “libertarian” parties.
Libertarian candidates seek a constitutional government empowered to enforce laws protecting individual rights from theft, fraud and aggression. This is what anarchists are AGAINST or there would be nothing for them to criticize in the LP platform. What we regard as the rule of law they see as obstructions interfering in the labor of murderers and highwaymen. The fact that most parties corrupt government power to put into practice the ethics of parasitism is all the more reason to distance ourselves from the anarchist branch of that same philosophy.
With friends like anarchists, freedom needs no enemies.
Remember the Ozone Hole over Antarctica where only 1000 people live? This is in the Southern Hemisphere where only 1/9 of all humanity resides. Of 7.6 billion human inhabitants, some 844,444,444 (way less than a billion) live in the Southern Hemisphere, the surface of which is mostly salt water, that is, water and sodium and chlorine.
An Antarctic volcano, Mount Erebus, has been in continuous eruption for thousands of years. Erebus, like Deception Island, also spews chlorine into the atmosphere. What does this have to do with melting ice cream and expensive repairs to your failing home and auto air conditioners? You may recall the “consensus” of nameless ex-scientists that claimed (with no comparisons) that nuclear energy was “dangerous.”
The tiny number of very shrill voices claiming to represent a huge, educated crowd also had it in for Allied nuclear weapons. Surrender to Soviet communism was, by their lights, preferable to risking the possibility of another military action with nuclear weapons against socialism or its fellow travelers. Voters responded by electing Ronald Reagan and the Altrurian Empire collapsed within a dozen years–but not before a ban on freon coincided with a major stock market collapse in 1987.

A search on the surviving scientist-impersonators invariably reveals continued currish fawning in the lap of a Soviet altruist dictatorship now relegated to the dustbin of history. Only senile idiots vote for the communist party in Russia, and their numbers decrease as actuarial science predicts.
A search on the real scientists reveals only that Nixon’s bought looter media still struggle to ignore them, the awkward questions they raise and the inconvenient facts to which they call attention. But voters in 2017 understood perfectly that the Democrats and Ecological Nationalsocialists still peddle the same Climate Change agitprop Soviet propagandists subsidized in 1960! The Dems lost because they promised to invent carbon taxes and treat electric power stations like Republicans treat LSD labs.
Is it any wonder air conditioners, chillers and freezers are failing? Real low-pressure freon is the optimum refrigerant in chemical engineering. It therefore follows, as night follows day, that ecological nationalsocialists and their illiterate minions seek to ban it whatever the cost in lives, health or freedom. When the ban results in broken equipment, the global warming fantasy explains away the consequence of superstition replacing science.
As a thought experiment, try to imagine anti-freon fanatics admitting that seasonal thinning of ozone was caused by lack of sunlight in the Antarctic winter plus chlorine spewed from two obvious and 91 unmentioned volcanoes under the ice sheet had panicked them into demanding bad legislation.
Now consider the alternative: would the same lying cowards instead make up a new lie to explain why cooling equipment, as modified per their demands, no longer works?
Pseudoscience also invents explanations of the Crash and Depression. Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929 explores the causes that by September 2, 1929, had caused investors to remove their capital from American banks and brokerages, then shows the mechanism of government that crushed the economy.

The 2-faction kleptocracy hates competition from emerging parties. So intense is this hatred that from 1850 till the early 70s, everything the Communist, Socialist and Prohibition parties demanded got written into U.S. law.
The Comstock laws of 1872-3 provided ten years on a chain gang for even talking about birth control, abortion or possessing a condom or diaphragm. These weren’t struck down until the Libertarian Party platform of 1972 demanded it.
Forced collectivization of labor, with mandatory tithing to union goons, the Communist Manifesto income tax, withholding for old-age pension demanded by Hitler’s National Socialist program and endorsed by Father Coughlin, regulation, licensing and extortion for every trade and profession were real by the 200th Birthday of These States. Yet all of these things were moonshine, pipe dreams back when Looking Backward, Equality, The Iron Heel and A Traveller from Altruria assured readers that altruism required aggression by naked force to make an Earthly Paradise of this vale of tears. How?
You’ve heard that power corrupts, but when was the last time you saw political power defined as the rate at which a Political State can have people killed? Any physics textbook explains that work is the product of a force acting over a distance, and that power is the instantaneous rate at which work is done. The word is recycled into politics because the meaning is practically the same, not some farfetched analogy. But for purposes of draining tax money into the personal comfort or politicians and their remoras, obfuscation, not clarity, is the useful tool.
This brings us to vote counting in Minnesota. Today’s kleptocracy is the same old political soft machine operated by interchangeable minions to rob money. The Republican faction retains many of its original influences: communism, christian altruism and racial purity eugenics. It seeks a return to Comstock Laws and National Prohibition, plus a Religious War against the Saracen blackamoor and his satanic plants. The Democratic faction longs for low tariffs, chattel slavery in its communist version, exploitation of immigrants, suppression of all things suppressable and extortionate gratuities for looking the other way. Both favor any excuse for armed asset forfeiture. By their lights, looter Third Parties added to their power, and are no longer needed anymore. The worst thing either faction can imagine is a party bent on undoing the corruption of a century in order to restore individual rights!
Mixed-economy elections are moneyed affairs with minute calculations of return on investment in the flim-flamming of fools. One of the best illustrations is the election of comedian Al Franken as Senator for Minnesota.
Under Minnesota state law, automatic recounts occur in the following general election circumstances:
1. the margin of victory in a state legislative contest is less than 0.5 percent of the total number of votes cast for that office…
2. the margin of victory in a contest… is less than 0.25 percent of the total number of votes cast for that office…
This law tells us that, to Minnesota lawmakers, the closer the election the greater the temptation to fraud–which, after all, is the whole point of running kleptocracy candidates for office! Al Franken lost by a couple of hundred votes, then won on recount by over twice that many so the initial and final count of those decisive votes differed by 245%. There’s your honor among thieves.
Looter parties fear honestly-cast spoiler votes. Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead only voted once, then rejected all choices between two evils. It’s a pity Garcia never heard of the Libertarian Party, for he might have understood that a winning vote is a vote that repeals bad laws. But the fact does underscore the importance of ending the Nixon subsidies to entrenched looter parties.

Genocide is a social adaptation that observably marches in lockstep with altruism. Altruism itself is variously redefined by collectivists–especially religious conservatives–to infuse it with an odor of scientific eugenics.
This manufactured reaction dates back to Richard Dawkins’ “The Selfish Gene.” The book’s introduction humbly apologizes for unwittingly validating the individualist view of life and survival, especially the way virtue ethics considers values or goodness. Fourteen years before The Selfish Gene, similar ethical conclusions were advanced in Atlas Shrugged, a book organized mysticism struggled to pretend never existed in much the way The Party members in Orwell’s novel 1984 struggled to believe an apostate or “unperson” had never existed. Dawkins, a scientist, was harder to ignore, so distortion was relied on instead.
It is informative that since Dawkins’ writings, the idea of altruists as a race that reproduces sexually is again advanced by religious conservatives as solemnly as though it were a new argument. Bonobo monkeys and other instinctual beasts incapable of conceptual thought are offered by religious conservatives as examples that “prove” that altruism–acting sacrificially to benefit others, not self–is by Revealed ipso facto Definition “the” Good. A reinforcing example is the assertion that female Bonobo monkeys won’t copulate with non-sacrificial males. Leaving aside the yearning for female monkeys as the last possible partners girl-bullying brutes can hope for, the net appeal is to collectivist reproduction increasing the subspecies. Each Selfish Gene applies game theory to survival of the gene pool as accurately as physical phenomena apply efficient paths to conservation of energy transitions.
Yet genes lack the intelligence or moral decision making ability to avoid Malthusian disasters such as occur when population exceeds food supply. Whether conservatives also lack this discernment or simply rely on the Rapture’s host of angels lifting them bodily from the jaws of overpopulation crises leading to war, etc. is not obvious. One possibility is that control over children offers organized mysticism the opportunity to cripple young minds through conditioning and indoctrination. After all, in pre-1911 China, girls were encouraged to cripple themselves by binding their own feet, and actually thought this a “good” thing according to consensus and generally accepted community standards.
The Conservative theory is a rewarming of the old Race Suicide view held by Roosevelt Republicans in 1906. The argument was structured in much the same way Lutheran and Papist nationalsocialism characterized “juden” in Germany’s Altruria as an invasive species that cannot be “assimilated” and must instead, regretfully and with heavy heart, be exterminated like so many Apaches or Comanches. From Adolf Hitler’s Theodoric struggle to use genocide for altruist collectivist eugenics, religious conservatism has lately evolved to Trump’s offer to extirpate the families of unappreciative Semitic tribesmen whose Sharia jurisdictions Christians so eagerly tax us to bomb.
Over a century later mystical ideologues STILL Stand at Armageddon Doing Battle For The Lord, exactly like the fanatical Mohammedans of similar ideology. This is the key difference between religious socialism and individualism. Communists and nationalsocialists never tire of each declaring the other are “not really” altruists. Yet both clearly value coercion, sacrifice, death in their fundamental manifestos. This is a subjective, distorted, unreliable moral compass pointing in the wrong direction in all cases.
Letting these twin variants of the rejection of reason replace science, philosophy–especially ethics–would be suicidal. Fortunately it isn’t happening. The genocidal rampages of communo-fascist socialism in Germany and Russia were as vivid an object lesson as the amok berserker hijackings into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Communist vote shares in elections are falling like membership in mystical congregations. The Libertarian party is gaining votes and membership while the looter parties are shrinking. You can help by studying virtue ethics, voting and making a small donation to the Libertarian Party.
