Republicans then and now

Pope endorses 24-hour work shifts

Republican exploitation was fun back then. Plant leaves were legal.(link)

I found the above item in the Meriden Daily Republican for Saturday, December 31, 1878. That was the year the Infallible Pope Leo, appreciative fan of Vin Mariani,  issued a papal bull decrying the cults formed by “semi-barbarian men calling themselves socialists, communists or nihilists…” (link) A free-trade agreement was entered into with the Samoan Islands, silver dollars were coined as legal tender and greenbacks were kept in circulation to please the Grangers and to simplify eventual resumption of the gold standard. 

There had been some ruffled feathers over dry fanatic Rutherford Hayes having been declared winner in 1876 with 165 electoral votes to Samuel Tilden’s 184.  The difference required a swap of 20 electoral votes from Southern States for withdrawal of federal troops so that ku-klux “Redeemers” could make damn good and sure Black voters were suppressed, and kept from voting against Democrats.(link) Four years of “Lemonade Lucy” Hayes refusing to serve alcohol at the Executive Mansion were enough.(link) Hayes was succeeded by Arthur Garfield who was quickly shot by a fellow Republican who had not been awarded “his” hoped-for political sinecure.(link) Observe that in 2016, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson got more votes than either of these Reconstruction-era candidates.(link)

Amid the fallout from crony-assassinations and Jim Crow election-stealing, Democrat Grover Cleveland was elected, defeated by another religious prohibiton fanatic, then reelected despite voter suppression on a platform to do away with “sumptuary laws which vex the citizen and interfere with individual liberty.” (link) Oddly enough, the silver glut and monetary crisis so stressed agrarian cheap-money parties as to bring a surge in neo-communist electoral votes. Cleveland’s second term was so awash in post-Republican financial problems and socialist orators that it stood by as Congress approved a Communist Manifesto Income Tax in 1894.(link)

The banking collapse was so widespread that Supreme Court Justices struck down that Income Tax and saved enough banks to cash their own tax-free paychecks. So ended the first Republican war on enjoyable drugs, and the closest thing to a libertarian Administration since the Jefferson and Jackson Administrations. Communist anarchist assassins and meddlesome coercive prohibitionists rapidly proliferated in These States and in the effete mystical mercantilist monarchies of the Old World, and communist income taxes proliferated apace.(link) World War I soon followed.(link

Minneapolis, July 1934

Communist rioters = ANTIFA

Antifa 1934; see original (link)

The Tuscaloosa News p. 1 STATE’S TROOPS PATROL STREETS IN MINNEAPOLIS–City Placed under Military Rule as Governor Fears Further Disorders–CITIZENS UNAFFECTED BY CONTROL FOR MOST PART–Radicals Again Blamed for Strike as New Peace Plan is Drafted— MINNEAPOLIS, July 27 (AP) Employers rejected the suggestion that they can reconsider the refusal of peace terms advanced by federal mediators in the truck drivers strike as federal authorities turned inquisitive eyes on two suspected Communists linked by police with the strike. 


MINNEAPOLIS, July 27 (AP) Concentration of National Guard troops in downtown Minneapolis because of the truck drivers’ strike, was increased by the moving in of an especially trained “shock” troop Battalion today.

  Quietness pervaded the city as the Third Battalion of the 206th Infantry entered the downtown district with a heavy complement of arms, including gas guns, field machine guns, and automatic rifles. The men, most of them veterans with war experience were specially trained in dispersing crowds.

  Military rule of the city, decreed yesterday by Gov. Floyd B Olson, this morning brought guardsmen to every corner of the heart of the downtown district. They acted on instructions to prevent parking within a 76-block area except to discharge passengers, and to forbid the gathering of crowds. They wore steel helmets and carried rifles with fixed bayonets.
 

1200 in City


  The total strength of the guard within the city approximated 1200. Some 2800 more men still remain at city limits, ready for call. Whether this reserve force would be demobilized and sent home, depended on developments in the next few days. Sixty-eight persons were injured, most of them wounded and one fatally, by police shotguns a week ago today when pickets attempted to halt a loaded truck.
Armed guardsmen patrolled the downtown district as federal mediators, the Rev. Francis Haas and E.H. Dunnigan, prepared a new peace plan they expected to complete today and the employers’ advisory committee again publicly blamed Communists for the strike. All efforts to settle the controversy so far have failed.


Citizens Not Affected


  For the most part, citizens were unaffected by control of the National Guard. Striking drivers, however, were forbidden to congregate out-of-doors in large numbers without written consent of Adjutant General E.A. Walsh. This order also applied to all gatherings of 100 persons or more.

  Employers were unable to move commercial vehicles, save trucks bearing necessities, without official permits from the military. Trucks that did not move today, plied the streets without armed police convoys for the first time in almost a week.
  Deliveries of breadstuffs, milk, ice, beer, gasoline were unhampered by guardsmen. This did not (Continued on Page 2)LINK

STATE’S TROOPS PATROL STREETS – (Continued from Page 1)
include deliveries of pie, cake and pastry, for which permits were required. Automobile parking in the downtown area was forbidden from 5 AM today until termination of the military rule.

  A few hours before the troops got underway, both sides failed to agree on peace terms promulgated by the federal mediators. After the military took control, the employer’s advisory committee issued a public statement condemning communism.


Communist Boast


  Quoting “the Militant,” organ of the Communist League of America, as boasting “our comrades played a leading role in the preparation and conduct of the great strike in Minneapolis which electrified the entire labor movement,” the employers concluded:

   “Communists are daily throwing additional Minneapolis workers out of employment by obstructing delivery of supplies. Communists are defying civil authorities. The strike in Minneapolis is not a strike of union labor for redress of any wrongs. It is a Communist uprising aimed at gaining control of our government by force – using labor organizations as the means. (…) Compare with today (link)

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT had inherited the Banking Panics and Great Depression from Herbert Hoover’s enforcement of the March, 1929 Increased Penalties Act.(link) Like the Harding crash of 1920, that larger economic trainwreck caused citizens to line up to join the Communist party–its membership growing by a factor of 9 from 1929 to 1939.(link)  

Prohibition Crashes increase Communism

Meanwhile in Germany, where the Herbert Hoover’s 1931 Moratorium on Brains made it possible for National Socialism to win elections, rearm Germany and meddle in European politics…

Christian Socialists thick as thieves

Just like Nixon helped the Kleptocracy with the 1971 Anti-Libertarian Law–only it backfired…

An Unconfirmed Report That Italian Troops Have Already Crossed the Austrian Border near Villach caused grave concern in government circles tonight. (…) 

Strange how History rhymes, no? (link)

WINNING!

Republican crashes bring communism

Stocks crash, sugar price up 600%

Normal sugar price was 4 cents, cartoon is first day of Volstead Act

The Republican party, like its foster-child party in 1933 Germany, bragged that it is preferable to communism. But what if prohibitionist Republican policies actually increase communism by causing economic panics, crashes, depressions and collapse?(link

Disloyalty a crime since 1873 Comstock laws

Prohibition January 1920, Reds and Rights confront National Socialist sedition laws, markets crashing

The mechanism is simple enough. Politicians stirred into frenzy by braying evangelizers pass prohibition laws people ignore. To these are added the “teeth” of asset-forfeiture confiscation and huge fines and prison terms. All money flees the banks and brokerages to escape the inevitable fractional-reserve system liquidity crunch, failures and bankruptcies. Violence replaces rights and soon everyone is as poor as in a communist dictatorship. With nothing to lose, folks begin voting for communist and similar looter parties.(link)

Below shows how communist party membership increased after the 1920-22 Crash and Depression, then Whole Enchilada Crash. Observe that the numbers shrank after general nullification made those laws unenforceable in 1923-4, then shot up as the Jones Five and Ten law and asset-forfeiture imposed huge losses and liabilities on corn sugar and yeast plants and their “gangster” surrogates producing moonshine ethanol.(link)

Crashes increase communist party membership

Red ranks increase from Harding-Coolidge 1920 Crash, then explode beginning 1930 under GOP’s Herb Hoover

As soon as the Volstead Act became enforceable at gunpoint the night of January 16th, 1920, stock markets began to wobble. Instead of prosperity and freedom, markets crashed and jails filled up. Nullification saved the day as armed citizens exchanged gunfire with dry killers.(link) This is from the communist party page, where you can see large, interactive charts.(link) Here is how a less wrecked economy allows entrenched kleptocracy parties to rob without fear of 3rd-party competition. This is before the Bush asset forfeiture Crash of 2008: 

Between asset-forfeiture crashes

1992 was when Bush Daddy was fired after wrecking the economy with Nancy Reagan policies.

Once fanaticism overcame nullification with the 5 and 10 Law and the Willebrandt income-tax-forfeiture agenda, the economy toppled as of September 1929 and looter parties multiplied like flies on a battlefield. Corn Products Refining and Fleischmann’s Yeast, whose products replaced banned distilleries, breweries and bars, were both indicted and fined, and their empires additionally threatened with state income tax forfeitures.

The power behind Capone in Cicero

Add yeast and distill, or add yeast, powdered malt and brew

So voting for Bernie communism makes These States more communistic, true. But voting for faith-based national socialism to destroy the economy with forfeiture-fired pseudoscientific witchhunts raises communist/surrogate memberships MUCH faster because that’s what happens in a wrecked economy. Here is how Americans came to their senses on this and voted after the George Waffen Bush asset-forfeiture crash cost them half their retirement savings:

Pro-choice Gary Johnson got 4.5 million votes

Libertarians get 4.5 million pro-choice votes, increasing at 80% per year and repealing bad laws after 1980 GOP Crash

Either way you look at wasting your valuable vote you lose freedom, because communo-fascist variants of socialism are the same thing. Voting Libertarian jerks the rug out from under looter corruption AND repeals their idiot laws to boot with very large effective leverage.(link

The tug from below–spoiler votes!

Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista

Comrade Eric Arthur Blair–POUM

Civilized men flying overhead were trying to kill George Orwell as he composed some wartime essays, especially The Lion and The Unicorn (link) Every nation in Europe was run by men who deeply believed altruism–as formulated by the mythical Jesus and by Auguste Compte–to be a good thing, not at all causally connected with witch-sniffing, the rack, the guillotine, burning at the stake or book-burning.(link) These things did in fact invariably coincide, the way Crashes and Depressions coincided with making beer a federal felony to justify asset-forfeiture looting.

Bombs fell out of the sky as materialist altruists fought mystical altruists in deadly earnest, each convinced no non-altruist alternative could possibly exist–much like the United States and Brazil today. Orwell, a collectivist, trusted the judgment of the “common man,” from whom the blimps, toffs, dividend-drawers and plutocrats could learn plenty:

The nation is bound together by an invisible chain. At any normal time the ruling class will rob, mismanage, sabotage, lead us into the muck; but let popular opinion really make itself heard, let them get a tug from below that they cannot avoid feeling, and it is difficult for them not to respond. The left-wing writers who denounce the whole of the ruling class as ‘pro-Fascist’ are grossly over-simplifying.(1941)

So what is this tug from below that unavoidably makes itself felt? It is not violent demonstrations, or the Kremlin would be in DC. It is also not lobbying by “non-partisan” single-issue groups. Not only are they castrated by laws ordering them not to influence elections, they have a financial stake in the continued existence of the hobgoblin they pretend to battle against. One clue is in the tug from above: political party platform planks.

Looter politicians avoid mentioning planks. Planks are what people read before donating money.(link) God’s Own Prohibitionist parties–yes there are two–promise to seek a Constitutional Amendment to prohibit birth control and all 3 or 4 communist parties promise to do the same to throttle off access to energy and take-home pay. Fascist partisans vehemently deny ties to religious nationalsocialism just as anti-energy parties cover acres of newsprint convincing voters they are “not really” communist.

Law-changing clout of spoiler votes!

All political change comes from growing party spoiler vote clout–Dokuro Chan

Yet the 16th and 18th Amendments that wrecked the economy came from ku-klux and socialist platform planks, just as all current shibboleths against economic freedom and individual rights come from the exact same places. Parties that seek to divide rights take their cues from religious or materialist totalitarianism. The only party that regards freedom and rights as indivisible is the Libertarian Party. Visit your state or local LP to see what you can do to help. Your spoiler vote returns at least 20 times the change dividend if invested against the Kleptocracy.

LP growth BEFORE the platform sabortage

Before adding 2018 planks to import terrorists and protect them from capital punishment the LP was growing 80% per year. What planks are your state or local LP writing?

Biden-Reagan crash, 1987-88

Senator Bob Dole, a “Just Say No” groupie, placed on the 9/26/1986 agenda S.AMDT.3034, to strengthen the laws against illegal drugs, and for other purposes. This was another Wesley Livsey Jones 5&10 law of 90 years ago, adding Gestapo tactics and looting to existing prohibition laws. These repeat events occurred 33 years ago.

Opinions and Social Pressure, Asch, 1955

The prohibitionist bandwagon effect, 1989 news ad

Senator Biden insisted on S.AMDT.3092 tweaking Dole’s meddling. A year later the Omnibus Drug Enforcement, Education, and Control Act of 1986 hit the political arena, the market crashed and Biden on October 21, 1987 put the Federal Criminal Fines and Sentencing Act on the calendar, which eventually mutated and passed as the entire economy collapsed. Why not look at that law? Mandatory minimums, asset forfeiture, the whole recipe for a Great Depression, papered over with paper money, is in there.

Now that the same geriatric asset-forfeiture prohibitionist is gearing up for another run at the White House, what happens when you search for the text of his economy-wrecking piece of weaponized legislation?

Text: H.R.5210 — 100th Congress (1987-1988)
All Information (Except Text)

Digital text is not available. Print format documents may be available at a federal depository library, or contact us for assistance.

This sort of strategy was outlined in Orwell’s 1984:

How could you make appeal to the future when not a trace of you, not even an anonymous word scribbled on a piece of paper, could physically survive?

Similar slits existed in thousands or tens of thousands throughout the building, not only in every room but at short intervals in every corridor. For some reason they were nicknamed memory holes. When one knew that any document was due for destruction, or even when one saw a scrap of waste paper lying about, it was an automatic action to lift the flap of the nearest memory hole and drop it in, whereupon it would be whirled away on a current of warm air to the enormous furnaces which were hidden somewhere in the recesses of the building. As soon as all the corrections which happened to be necessary in any particular number of The Times had been assembled and collated, that number would be reprinted, the original copy destroyed, and the corrected copy placed on the files in its stead.

Persistence leads to a mutilated scan sprinkled with plausibly deniable typos. (link)

There you will find the Department of Justice Assets Forfeiture Fund, which looting funds the “compromise and payment of valid liens and mortgages against property that has been forfeited.” This practice led to the 2007-8 subprime mortgage-backed securities crash as unreported thousands of homes were seized and then dumped by kleptocracy looters with service pistols. For $38 you can see just how heavily redacted is the asset-forfeiture information on these confiscations from 1988 to 1992. (link)

Looters will be Looters

Looters with guns and uniforms… Death Sentence!

The causes of the Flash Crashes of 2010 and 2015 are in there too, as “financial investigative programs that target the identification of money laundering operations and assets obtained through illegal drug trafficking…” Both the Democratic and Republican parties created this mess, as on the night of January 16th, 1920, and the crashes of 1920, 1929, 1987, 2010 and 2015 were the direct result, along with all the financial losses, impairment of retirement savings and pension funds, unemployment, currency inflation, terrorism brought on by deadly meddling overseas.

The resulting dilapidation of U.S. infrastructure and erosion of our foreign goodwill and image abroad is the result of these cruel and superstitious laws created at the behest of mystical bigotry backed by pseudoscientific perjury and data-tampering. Stock values fell 34% in 2008 because George Waffen Bush funded faith based fanatics and unleashed them with a license to loot. (link) (link)

Smearing Libertarians

bomb-throwing communist anarchist terrorist REPEAT

Constant repetition: anarchists, bomb-hurling anarchists

Republican journalist James Kilpatrick was among the first to gain media subsidies via the Nixon anti-Libertarian law for this piece. Consistent with the Prohibition Party and George Wallace Dixiecrats coalition the GOP was reduced to after the Kennedy assassinations, the kleptocracy’s pet journalist called us anarchists. Meanwhile the GOP platform committee sweated to draft force Amendments to overturn Roe v Wade and change the meaning of the first three words of the 14th Amendment: All persons born…

Here is Kilpatrick with The Gipper, the day after Federal plant leaf prohibitionist policies and H.R. 3226 did for hippies what the Kristallnacht laws did for Jewish shopkeepers. Money “Laundering” as pretext for asset forfeiture was next on Congress’ agenda, as Veterans Administration personnel were being fired in the Just Say No blood purity pogrom.

In less than a month this ramp-up of prohibitionist fanaticism would cause the stock market to drop 108 points in a day, cost investors half a trillion dollars, and usher in another Great Depression.
