It Takes a Village Idiot

Irishwoman 1971

Ireland, 1971, no LP.org

As soon as the Libertarian Party used a single electoral vote to secure rights enjoyed by women in England and even Russia, God’s Own Prohibitionists began casting about for ways to counter, offset, weaken, ridicule, infiltrate and sabotage the Party of Principle. At the time the Libertarian party was formed, the English Parliament had already passed the 1967 Abortion Act stating essentially what our 1972 plank contained–at a time when nobody but George Wallace stood in opposition.

Shoot Me!

Wallace spoiler votes crippled America, and bullets crippled Wallace

But no sooner had the Supreme Court swung that plank like a mace to unhorse the latest Dixiecrat appeal to “race suicide” fears in Roe v Wade than national socialist soft machines went into high gear. The Prohibition Party platform added demands for yet another Prohibition Amendment, this one aimed at influencing Republican Party reproductive policies back to the Comstockism of 1873 via the threat of drawing away spoiler votes.(link) Sure enough, the Republican Party immediately copied that antichoice plank into its 1976 platform, in yet another proof of the law-changing effectiveness of casting spoiler votes.(link) (link)

Religious looters dominating the GOP and Prohibition Party essentially held their breath hoping nobody would mention the 1967 English (much less Russian) laws ensuring the individual rights of women. But after the LP let the cat out of the bag and Canada also jumped on the individual rights bandwagon, faith-based nationalsocialism began a sustained bombardment of amendment proposals to coerce women and doctors.   Ireland–politically a suburb of Vatican City at the time–fell prey to the whipped-up frenzy and joined a witchhunt against women and physicians with Amendment 8 passed in 1983 (then was repealed by 2/3 majority May 26, 2018). Communist Romania’s antichoice dictator Ceausescu was tried and executed on Christmas of 1989.(link

Village Idiot politics

Mises Caucus Anarchist Infiltrator The Village Idiot infiltration tactic

Yet here we are in the 21st Century and God’s Own Prohibitionists in their platform and policies STILL pressure, bribe, entice, infiltrate and intimidate the Libertarian Platform Committee back toward the halcyon days of the Panic of 1873. That was when sending a packet of condoms through the mail was good for ten years in the penitentiary and a fine equivalent to $300,000 at today’s gold conversion rate. What has changed is that ONLY Americans born before Herbert Hoover was nominated for the Presidency believe mysticism is increasingly important to politics. Those pre-1928 Landover Baptist, Billy Sunday, Father Coughlin, Billy Graham and Bob Jones Republican tools insist on poisoning our platform with planks designed to repel women voters. Their latest tactic is to subsidize LP infiltration by clowns and mentally disturbed exhibitionists.  

The smart way to break the cycle is to vote Libertarian, and let the Republican Party flounder and sink as voters flee the national socialist shipwreck and vote 21st-Century American Libertarian policies instead of 12th-Century Mohammedan attitudes toward women. Don’t worry. Many thinking people are poised to flee the sinking hulk that is the Democratic People’s Party as well. You cannot lose by exchanging 0.00000007% of a wasted vote total for 0.00002% of clout-leveraged spoiler votes guaranteed to put bad laws in the dustbin of history. That’s a leveraged gain of 3 orders of magnitude in the importance of your individual vote.

Infiltrator Camouflage

parasite mimesis

Passionfruit caterpillars mimic tendrils to escape detection while ruining crop

Pests, predators, parasites and infiltrators are as quick as their hosts and prey to adapt appearance to purposes. The butterfly caterpillars in the photo are adapted to prey on passionfruit, and their dimensions and coloration mimic passion fruit tendrils. This works among humans as well. Spies, undercover agents, con artists, snipers and even journalists resort to cross-dressing and disguises to facilitate their purposes. 

Communism with training wheels

Fabian Society Socialism

Laws against trade and production engender black markets. When the Libertarian Party was first being established, prohibition agents had for years been cross-dressing as acidheads to infiltrate the hippie community for confiscation, arrests and asset forfeiture seizures. These seizures have since 1920 caused liquidity crises, fractional-reserve banking panics, recessions and depressions. Burglars and bank robbers wear masks for the exact same purposes, but with differing voter approval. What better camouflage for men attracted to young boys than a priest’s robe? And how for over a century have fascist and anarcho-communist fifth columnists infiltrated political parties to alter their platforms and influence choice of candidates? Subtly. This is ordinary newspaper material, no exotic imaginings.(link

Smuggling Communist Manifesto plank 2 into the 16th Amendment of the Constitution was accomplished through camouflage and misdirection. Instead of a communist party openly declaring its intent, post-Reconstruction Granger movements were infiltrated and exploited by a soi-disant Greenback Party whose 1880 platform demanded the exact same income tax as the communists, and won. They did not get their candidate elected. That was never their goal. With less than 3% of the vote on average they got the enslaving tentacle of collectivist coercion wrapped around the Constitution to protect the illegal capitation tax from the Supreme Court meddling that repealed such a tax during the Depression of 1895. By their lights, THAT was winning.(link)

The Libertarian Party is the only ideological enemy of totalitarian collectivist imperialism. Communist dictators control trillions of dollars, and repressive, mixed-economy autocracies (including our own Kleptocracy-dominated government) control additional trillions. Americans are but 5% of the world population; the other 95% favor even more coercion than our own entrenched looter parties. Only 55% of voting age Americans bother to vote, and The Kleptocracy has for years been losing adherents.

Foreign autocracies and native bureaucracies can afford to back whack-job activists unable to infiltrate competent looter parties, and to groom their own infiltrators, make selective donations, talk their way onto the platform committee or inveigle us into backing dead-end candidates. And they would be fools not to, for it is the cheapest method of obstruction out there.

We should certainly expect no less. The federal government doesn’t. Federal employees piss into sample cups and have their hair clipped over plant leaves. Federal employees too libertarian to submit to such indignities were fired back in 1987. Notices to that effect coincided with a major stock market crash as Biden and Reagan-Bush pushed mandatory minimums and asset forfeiture laws through Congress, amid grandstanding demands for death sentence execution of prohibition violators. The Kleptocracy uses security clearances for all sorts of reasons.

LP candidate meets the press-gang

Like nearly all actual libertarians I was thrilled to see Jo Jorgensen beat Das Boothead, Angry Shellshocked Vet, Hanging Judge Dred and other uninspiring contestants. And it is a pity that a goofy voting system kept her from having Jacob Hornberger as the competent Vice-Presidential candidate she and I preferred.(link) But her first “friendly” LPTV interview could have gone better. 

Jo agreeing with prohibitionist characterizations? (link)

So now what we have is a community of poor people, because the government put them all in one place, where they can’t help each other, and guess what’s the only way you can drive a Mercedes? The only way you can drive a Mercedes is if you sell drugs. So now, what the government has created is an enclosed community, without fathers, and the only role model is the drug dealer, who’s got the, the great jewelry and the Mercedes. And now we’ve got a criminal as the role model. It is just tragedy what the government has done to motivation and incentive.

So… prohibition scofflaws are bad people who buy fossil-guzzlers from The Accursed Hun? Contrast THAT with what HL Mencken said about “drug” dealers back when light beer was a hard time felony

What is needed, obviously, is a new hero for the infantry of the land, for if one is not quickly supplied there is some danger that the boys will begin admiring Y.M.C.A. secretaries, crooked members of the Cabinet and lecturers on sex hygiene. In this emergency I nominate the bootlegger not, of course, the abject scoundrel who peddles bogus Scotch in clubs and office buildings, but the dashing, romantic, defiant fellow who brings the stuff up from Bimini. He is the true heir, not only of the old-time Indian fighters and train-robbers, but also of the tough and barnacled deep-water sailors, now no more. He faces the perils of the high seas in a puny shallop, and navigates the worst coast in the world in contempt of the wind and storm. Think of him lying out there on wild nights in winter, with the waves piling mountain-high and the gale standing his crazy little craft on her beam! Think of him creeping in in his motorboat on Christmas Eve, risking his life that the greatest of Christian festivals may be celebrated in a Christian and respectable manner! …

This brave lad is not only the heir of Jesse James and Ned Buntline; he is also the heir of John Hancock and all of the other heroes who throttled the accursed Hun in 1776. All the most gallant among them were smugglers, and in their fragile craft they brought in not only rum but also liberty. The Revolution was not only against the person of the Potsdam tyrant, George III; it was also, and especially, against harsh and intolerable laws the worst of them the abhorrent Stamp Act. But was the Stamp Act worse than Prohibition? I leave it to any fair man. Prohibition, in fact, is a hundred times as foul, false, oppressive and tyrannical. (link)

Quick to learn, however, our candidate gave a much better account of herself before the Public Brainwashing System interrogator over at Nationalsocialist Public Radio: 

SIMON: I’ve got to ask you about your running mate. His name is Spike Cohen. He calls himself an anarchist. He says he’s running to troll the system. He has a platform that promises, as I understand it, free ponies and a Waffle House on every corner.

JORGENSEN: I believe you are reciting the presidential platform of one of my competitors who lost, and Spike is now on my team. And so no, that’s not our platform.

SIMON: Well, it’s not your platform. You mean – are you saying Spike Cohen never said that?

JORGENSEN: What I’m saying is now that Spike Cohen has joined my team, we’ve got a combined platform that is mine. (link)

Already Jo is deftly coping with the humiliation of having a communist anarchist impostor thrust on her campaign by machinations of the Anschluss Caucus.(link) Good work! 

Monteiro Lobato wrote a pro-American book bristling with eugenics and endorsements of Prohibition in 1926. Here is the science fiction story of the U.S. presidential election of the year 2228, translated into English by J Henry Phillips. (link)

Hyphenated parasitism

Jesus freak christianofascism

Christian Vegan depicted as extreme-right in Germany (link)

Anarchism is the same thing as communism. If in doubt, see in their own garbled renderings how indistinguishable they are. (link

Back in the 1890s, when communism, anarchism and socialism were the same collectivist thing, with no gulags, death camps, killing fields or cyanide Kool-Aid suicide tests, few hyphens were needed. Bellamy’s strikers, Howells’ Altrurians and Jack London’s proletarians were proud of their altruistic belief in the initiation of force–provided only that the altruistic aggression were dictated by the historical necessity that made the triumph of socialism over monarchic industrial colonial mercantilism inevitable. There was nothing even remotely resembling laissez-faire agorism under Comstock laws and the Society for the Suppression of Vice.

Bryanism

Crucify Mankind on a Cross of Altruism

To add palatability, majority rule advocates and expropriation enthusiasts added “social” or “people’s” and “republican” (often meaning Red) as descriptive modifiers considered attractive at the time. Instead of communist parties pushing Karl and Friedrich’s progressive income tax, they were called Greenback, Anti-Monopoly and People’s. Under the big umbrella of racial eugenics, prohibitionists and communists, christians and other collectivists, often made common cause. (link)

Communism eats Dems

Anarchism now tries to Swallow LP

But no sooner had Russia’s NKVD and OGPU gone KGB and Germany’s Staatspolizei gone Gestapo, SS and Stasi than people began fleeing and killing themselves rather than submit to those paradises of worker altruism. Jew jokes making fun of selfishness disappeared when National Socialism came to power in February of 1933. The Soviet Socialist noble experiment was by then known to have resorted to genocidal extermination to loot grain crops to sell for hard currency. (link)

With the moral stature of altruism thus revealed as no less deadly than other forms of parasitism, mimesis became more and more important as a stalking-horse for depredation. Mercantilism was renamed capitalism and all communo-fascist variants of socialism mislabeled themselves with hyphenated imitations of “something else.” (link)

Anti-Libertarian Society

Creeping Fabian Socialism

Just as ants, mice, fish, birds and mammals are exploited through mimicry by social parasites, so mimesis plays a role in converting government from defender of individual rights to parasitical aggressor by camouflage, imitation, misdirection and impersonation. Shorn of the sheepswool of altruism as a proxy for “good” intentions, looter ideologies have no choice but to resort to hyphenation in order to mask themselves as something less noxious. (link

Locust

Now you see it…

Look around you and you see democratic, progressive, liberal, as modifiers masking and disguising socialism the better to take its target hosts unawares. As libertarian political ideology matures into a peace and freedom party increasing its vote share at 80% per annum by dislodging the parties of aggression, it is no surprise that aggressors of the looter persuasion suddenly describe themselves as “pro-life,” “pro-freedom,” “democratic-socialist” and “anarco-capitalist.” (link)

Destructive parasitism

Anarcho-parasitism preserves bad laws

The one practical lesson these hives have handed down to Libertarians is that very few spoiler votes for a consistent platform are needed to cause the scissioned and fratricidal Kleptocracy change its laws, planks and Constitution in hopes of keeping its withering hand in the till.(link) Libertarian politicians need to make voters aware that a wasted vote is a vote appeasing any part of the initiation of force–whether for Gott und fascismus or Historical necessity and communism in their various masks, disguises and euphemistic aliases. (link) (link)

Libertarian vote growth

LP vote growth since 2000, percentage

Every vote cast for an actual LP candidate threatens looters with financial and coercive power losses unless they back away from cruel laws. The spoiler vote strategy worked when fanatical prohibitionists and socialist looter parties joined forces to pass the 16th, 17th and 18th Amendments. Now that voters have seen the outcome of Christian fascism in Germany’s death camps and added mass death in Soviet gulags and grain famines, that ancient strategy now works to repeal cruel and coercive legislation enacted in those ignorant times.

Libertarian Party Universe of Discourse

Visual illusion

The mirror is real, the photo unaltered (link)

Every child is sooner or later faced with the God conundrum: If God is all-powerful, can he make a rock so heavy that even He Himself is unable to lift it? The puzzle is a tiny intelligence test with consequences. Children who cannot solve it–the ones eugenicists used to refer to as feeble-minded–conclude that religious superstition makes no sense and are easily enlisted into some Communist Youth Movement–believing that to be the only existing alternative. (link)

Others, equally unprepared for abstract thinking, undergo a moment of epiphany from which they emerge convinced that God obviously can produce a rock to nonsensical specifications, and are thankful for having had the Faith with which to resist the Devil’s attempt to inveigle them into the Sin of Denial. They then back political efforts to jail or kill all who disbelieve. Two wrongs make zero rights. (link)

None of these children ever grow up. At best they metamorphose into communist anarchists, democrats, republicans or fascists permanently confounded by false contradictions and unable to mature into rational thinkers. The idea of individual rights as an ethical claim to freedom of action stumps them completely. (link)

The results assume various forms: 

  • The Non-Aggression Principle says not to initiate the use of force against anyone. Therefore “we” should replace government with a state of war. 
  • “We” must abolish all government because laws against murder require prior restraint!
  • “We” must send armed agents of the Political State coercively reaching inside of women like Joe Biden because pregnant women aren’t individuals!
  • Invading armies, plague carriers and drovers of herds of infected cattle must be welcomed, because border inspection implies coercion to prevent invasion!
  • The tariff that funds Navy and Coast Guard inspections is a restraint on free trade (and hobbles entry of hostile biological, chemical and nuclear weapons) so “we” must abolish all tariffs (and instead keep the Communist Manifesto income tax).
  • “We” need shoot-first prohibitionism because pseudoscience says grass is addictive and mescalin messes up your chromiums, so Creation Science predicts we’d mutate into apes!
  • “We” need eugenics to wipe out the joos and make the world safe for altruism because eugenics says selfishness is an innate birth defect, like club-foot or feeble-mindedness!
  • “We” must rob someone else to feed the halt and lame because coercion is freedom!

Smart children, on the other hand, instantly recognize a toy–possibly even a weapon–with which to confound grownups. Brightness in a child is the belief in the ignorance of grownups–a concept physicist Richard Feynman reworked into a definition: “science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts.” This approach pays off. Artless fathers respond to God’s heavy rock conundrum with “go ask your mother.” Less-neglected parents explain how universes of discourse(link) are subject to rules of engagement that do not admit such artless dodges as equivocation, division by zero or doublethink. (link

So if you include an irresistible force in your premises, that excludes any immovable objects from that particular universe of discourse. If you include elections, that excludes anarchism. (link)

If you include a Libertarian political party in your plans, that precludes a platform to abolish the government, violate the Bill of Rights, or enshrine communist activities like bomb-throwing anarchism as some sort of protected “right” to invade, menace or otherwise initiate force or presume to retaliate. It does not preclude writing an intelligent platform calling for reversal of past mistaken amendments. The Prohibition of trade and production of alcoholic beverages was repealed by vote, and the Communist Manifesto income tax and illiterate election of senators can also be repealed. But candidates and planks that promise to violate the oath of office or Bill or Rights are a liability.

Fat Freddy and Gilbert Shelton say

Rights will get you through times of no anarchists better than communism will get you through times of no rights!

Communist anarchists, Comancheria war party raiders, warriors against individual rights of women, of blacks or semites, people who think devils are real and borders imaginary, believers in Rapture, televangelists of Apocalypse or race suicide are all just as welcome to register and vote for Libertarian candidates as engineers, scientists, actuaries, statisticians, physicians, nurses, writers, loggers, roofers, carpenters, busboys, waitresses, entrepreneurs, inventors and even attorneys. But we do not need people incapable of understanding the simplest definitions writing our political party platforms. It is tough enough to keep changing the laws through the unrelenting pressure of spoiler votes without incompetent bungling or deliberate sabotage. Fair enough? 

As you read this, infiltrators are adding planks to nullify biology inviting child molesters into both children’s bathrooms, declaring girl-bulliers act “in good faith,” package-dealing “free trade” and “migration” to again invite uninspected entry of infected cattle, foreign agents and biological weapons into These States, abolishing your copyrights, elevating “desire” over the constitutional provisions for defense, replacing the functions of government plank with an endorsement of communist anarchism (a state of war), removing national defense from international affairs, (infiltrators with no passport or second language) meddling in the territories plank, and converting the self-determination plank into a Dixiecrat endorsement of secession. 

I move that every participant who voted to approve these frauds resign or face a straight-up vote of no confidence by all dues-paying members registered to vote. I am also searching for candidates to replace certain table officers and entrenched moles. (link)

ANTIFA 1923

Same old same old...

Fascist socialism versus less religious socialism

Here we have a perfect example of history rhyming. The article could pass for something published in today’s fake news press in the State of Washington or Oregon. The story is in the future tense. One gang of violent altruists promises to “ferret out” agitators no less altruistic and violent. Details are not explicit, but interwar papers were full of violent confrontations between these two camps of socialist thought, both of which agree on the desirability and effectiveness of the initiation of force.(link

So what progress have we made since 1923? Eugenic prohibitionism no longer shoots people over beer unless they are behind the wheel. Many plant leaves could, if again left alone, offer an alternative to alcohol now relied on as a source of excise tax money that buys votes for political parties. Roving bands of communists (relabeled as anarchists) today seek smaller bands of more pious socialists to bat and bully, as in 1923.(link

The only real difference is that since 1972 voters have at times been able to cast ballots for the Libertarian Party. Because the LP platform calls for reducing reliance on aggression, emphasizing individual rights instead, those votes pressure kleptocracy parties into making their platform planks less coercive. The net result is repeated defeat of the more violent of two looter candidates. This causes predatory politicians to repeal cruel laws and water down violent platform planks in hopes of poaching away enough libertarian spoiler votes to again point a gun at your head.(link)

The chart below shows communist party membership in the wake of two prohibition-related depressions. Prohibition crashed the economy in 1920, was nullified by buying off and shooting agents (hence the recovery), then returned with flaming fanaticism after the Klan defected and helped elect the Republican party in 1928.(link)

Looting begets Looters

Communist membership rose after Republican prohibitionism causes a recession. Now it’s LP membership that rises whenever looter fanaticism wrecks the economy.

In a larger context, the same policy changes should reduce the reliance by subsidized parties on asset-forfeiture prohibitionism and economy-wrecking confiscation policies. This is because voters are now running to the Libertarian Party. Back in 1923 their only alternative to the entrenched kleptocracy was some sort of communo-socialist party.(link

World Health? FATF Crash?

Nothing to see here folks...

FATF Week in Paris… Why the Market Crash?

Who makes decisions about financial intervention and World Health?

According to WHO (The World Health Organization), contributions from the U.S. government, American citizens, and U.S.-based charities make up 76% of all voluntary contributions to the organization. That amounted to $945.6 million from 2016 to 2017. 

This is pretty close to what Tucker, the narrator over at Fox News has to say.(link) His story checks out. In fact just about everything national socialist “conservatives” say about international socialist “progressives” (and vice-versa) is as close as either gang ever comes to saying anything true. The puppet FOX claims the Chinese dictatorship has propped up at the WHO (who send men with guns to shoot and jail kids because of plant leaves) is clearly pathetic.(link) But to the Chinese dictatorship he’s “our” pathetic stooge. Who else does Red China have shaping policy?

Sum Ting Wong

Bank of Communist China

Meet the new FATF President, Xiangmin Liu, and the coercive agenda-framers’ veep Marcus Pleyer. A communist Chinese dictatorship puppet and an ecological National Socialist from former communist soldier Merkel’s Democratic Republic of Antifaschistischer Germany.(link) Here are China’s policies😦link

  • Under the Chinese Presidency, the FATF will continue to… work on confiscation
  • under the Chinese Presidency the FATF will conduct a strategic review of its core work.
  • Under the Chinese Presidency, the FATF will develop the methodology for countries to be assessed against the standard for virtual assets…
  • Financial institutions continue to attract attention for the wrong reasons and find themselves the focus of increasingly large-scale money laundering as highlighted by investigations and sanctions by law enforcement agencies and supervisors.
  • The FATF will continue to strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of criminal justice systems, including the investigation and prosecution of money laundering

Prohibitionists routinely cause financial collapses via asset forfeiture enactments, and when they do, the Republican Party they infiltrate and poison loses several successive presidential elections. China noticed this weakness. This latest crash came during FATF Week in Paris.(link) These bureaucrats design the deliberate looting of bank accounts, and crash economies as in 2008, and cause flash crashes.(link)

As soon as the latest FATF Crash needed to be explained away, subsidized media rushed into print with the 3-month-old communist lab virus no longer profitable to ignore. The FATF Week meeting was covered in Pakistani and Iranian media–and few other journalistic news outlets. 

The U.S. President ought to investigate FATF and declaw it. Charging the communists reparations for their germ lab accident could be an additional step. The simplest method would be to use the asset-forfeiture FATF itself recommends to seize the Treasury Bills in Chinese communist hands. What better way to combat terrorism?

When it comes to votes, either way, this crash and depression will arguably benefit the Libertarian Party, just as the 2008 Bush FATF crash helped us increase our vote share by 328% from 2008 to 2016. While the economy was recovering from the previous asset-forfeiture crash, medieval prohibitionism of plant leaves and contraception could be overlooked. But prohibitionism is the weakness in America’s mixed economy totalitarians have learned to exploit.

FATF Crashes Stock Market again!

Nothing to see here folks...

This happened during FATF week in Paris: an orgy of international asset-forfeiture plunder planning! (Source: S&P 500)

The market began wobbling February 16, then crashed violently on February 20, the day the Communist News Network began screeching and wailing about a not-really communist virus outbreak near a germ lab. So what else was happening on those days in places like… Paris? Here’s a taste: 

“FATF Week, 16-21 February 2020. On Sunday 16 February, more than 800 representatives from 205 countries and jurisdictions around the world, the IMF, UN, World Bank and other organisations, will arrive for FATF Week in Paris, France…”(link)

So what is FATF? It is the Harry Anslinger-Herbert Hoover-Richard Nixon-Bush-Bush asset-forfeiture Crash and Great Depression machine. Remember Milton Friedman in Free to Choose? In a fractional-reserve banking system, the money you deposit exists in several places as the clearing-houses compensate the instruments of money transfer. Finally it is loaned out at interest, so a lot of it is no longer at the bank.

So when federal agents with guns and blanket John Doe or Unnamed Asset warrants shove their way inside to grab cash and securities, other depositors can see the liquidity crunch coming and withdraw their assets. This reverses the leveraging of assets which–absent tax and prohibition raids–increases the money supply. The reversing result is mass bankruptcies and devaluation of assets.

Here’s what went on in Paris just before the crash: (link) Sound farfetched? Read their glossary: 

The term confiscation, which includes forfeiture where applicable, means the permanent deprivation of funds or other assets by order of a competent authority or a court. Confiscation or forfeiture takes place through a judicial or administrative procedure that transfers the ownership of specified funds or other assets to be transferred to the State. In this case, the person(s) or entity(ies) that held an interest in the specified funds or other assets at the time of the confiscation or forfeiture loses all rights, in principle, to the confiscated or forfeited funds or other assets. 

FATF was formed as soon as the Reagan-Bush-Biden prohibitionist asset-forfeiture crash deepened into a really bad recession with stock losses and unemployment. They admit this: 

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is an inter-governmental body established in 1989 by the Ministers of its Member jurisdictions. The mandate of the FATF is to set standards and to promote effective implementation of legal, regulatory and operational measures for combating money laundering, terrorist financing and the financing of proliferation, and other related threats to the integrity of the international financial system. In collaboration with other international stakeholders, the FATF also works to identify national-level vulnerabilities with the aim of protecting the international financial system from misuse.

Pretty shadowy and swampy, huh? And if this thing does wreck economies, who can be held accountable? Who would admit the obvious facts? How would you claim damages?

This sort of thing also happened in 1907, mainly due to new federal regulation of food & drugs and State bans on Beelzebubba’s Beer and The Demon Rum. It happened again in 1921, but was covered up by nullification, then returned with a vengeance in 1929, after Mabel Willebrandt explained, that August, what was going on on “The Inside of Prohibition,” in 20 national papers. Accelerating stock depreciation set in and investors dumped assets…

The banking panics of the Great Depression kept pace with federal indictments of yeast and glucose companies and confiscation of assets plus heavy fines measured in pounds of gold bullion–while the Coast Guard and Customs seized huge shipments of heroin that was steadily replacing beer. The federal government feigns bovine incomprehension of all this causality. 

Government spin-doctors also disavow any knowledge that the Reagan-Bush-Biden asset-forfeiture craze of 1987 had anything to do with that recession, and play dumb in sworn testimony and thick reports on the Flash Crashes. Here’s the latest one, with “market crash”, “financial collapse”, and “economic recession” nowhere to be seen.(link) Here’s a foretaste of Knife-Your-Customer snitching: 

A. CUSTOMER DUE DILIGENCE AND TIPPING-OFF.
1. If, during the establishment or course of the customer relationship, or when conducting occasional transactions, a financial institution suspects that transactions relate to money laundering or terrorist financing, then the institution should:
  (a) normally seek to identify and verify the identity of the customer and the beneficial owner, whether permanent or occasional, and irrespective of any exemption or any designated threshold that might otherwise apply; and
  (b) make a suspicious transaction report (STR) to the financial intelligence unit (FIU), in accordance with Recommendation 20.
2. Recommendation 21 prohibits financial institutions, their directors, officers and employees from disclosing the fact that an STR or related information is being reported to the FIU. A risk exists that customers could be unintentionally tipped off when the financial institution is seeking to perform its customer due diligence (CDD) obligations in these circumstances. The customer’s awareness of a possible STR or investigation could compromise future efforts to investigate the suspected money laundering or terrorist financing operation.
3. Therefore, if financial institutions form a suspicion that transactions relate to money laundering or terrorist financing, they should take into account the risk of tipping-off when performing the CDD process. If the institution reasonably believes that performing the CDD process will tip-off the customer or potential customer, it may choose not to pursue that process, and should file an STR. Institutions should ensure that their employees are aware of, and sensitive to, these issues when conducting CDD. 

Nice friendly stuff, eh? But hey, what’s another global economic crash compared with a convenient flu outbreak generating fewer fatalities than U.S. auto accidents for the same timeframe? This coming recession could easily eliminate the memory loss that sets in after each new crash and depression is explained away. Libertarian candidates could explain to voters what happens time after time, and I’ll lay odds someone will listen

Pro-life or Anti-life?

Speaking in tongues

Yes, many, many languages…

Anti-Life is a chapter in Ayn Rand’s 1957 best-seller Atlas Shrugged, in fact, it’s the chapter that follows Anti-Greed.

Anti-Greed is foreshadowed as part of a newspaper item so distorted as to upset Hank Rearden’s secretary, but

He laughed aloud. “I can see where such a distortion of the English language would make you furious”

It turns out that Anti-Greed is a chapter about Project X, a weapon that broadcasts death.

PRO-LIFE COP-KILLER

Conservative altruists still advocate sending men with guns to threaten doctors and coerce pregnant women into back-alley surgery. Impressed by that good example set by elected officials, some superstitious characters did indeed march out and murder unarmed doctors by shooting them in the back, or from outside their windows. This trend began shortly after the LP platform of 1972 demanded and got enforcement of individual rights for women. The latest in the long list or religious conservative assassins was Robert Dear, who is now under indictment on federal counts, several of which invoke capital punishment by a just society.(link) The most recent amendments to infiltrate the LP platform call for letting religious terrorists enter the U.S. uninspected, (a Democratic Party idea) then protecting them from the death sentence (a Republican idea) with taxpayers billed for room and board for life. Those planks are an example of how hostile ideologies are again boring in to make Libertarians look like fools to voters.

These are the people Ayn Rand preferred when she declared voting for the Tonie Nathan-John Hospers LP ticket “immoral.”(link) So what? We all make mistakes–and Tricky Dick wouldn’t wreck the economy for another year yet. At age 67, few of us are at the top of our game, but the ability to learn from mistakes is a valuable skill at which Ayn Rand did not excel. Unlike Nixon’s party, she did advocate individual rights for women. The LP did write the boilerplate the Supreme Court used as its Roe v. Wade decision, blocking race-suicide Dixiecrats from sending men with guns out to cause women bleed to death. When was the last time you heard about that in a Republican publication?

California v. Interpreters

I'm here to make idiots understand concepts

I’m here to deliver a clear and practical meaning.

The People’s State of California, lately a remake of Czechoslovakia under communism, has passed a law against independent freelance interpreters. The “American” Translators Association, ATA–in actuality an Association of Translation Agencies dominated by predators bent on what the California Democrats are ordering at gunpointis exactly the sort of pressure group that brings about these draconian attempts at naked coercion. But why coercion?

Mindless collectives such as People’s State Legislatures and Professional Agency associations float on an ocean of fascism (religious socialism) and communism (not-so-religious socialism). Like Middle Eastern fanatics, they cannot imagine anything BUT the organized initiation of force. The result is that California voters indoctrinated in government schools do not understand how Libertarian spoiler votes repeal bad laws.

Back before communist-organized mass starvation and christian socialist extermination camps revealed the true face of Altruria, fanatical altruist parties saddled America with an income tax and an amendment making beer a shoot-first felony.(link) Those prohibition and socialist parties twice changed the Constitution with force-law spoiler votes averaging about 2% of the national total. Instead of defending the individual rights of interpreters to offer our services by voluntary consent, look at how the ATA grovels in this boilerplate for the California Junta:

Translation and interpreting (T&I) has been called the world’s “second oldest profession.” The accuracy of that statement notwithstanding, it is certainly true that the translating and interpreting profession predates the “gig economy” by several thousand years. The current and effective business model of freelancers working through agencies to provide translation and interpreting services to the ultimate consumers of those services has been in place since at least the end of World War II.

The oldest profession is political whoring–appeals to rob or coerce Carlos to subsidize Maria and Juan. The lessons learned from Soviet and German National Socialism, Pol Pot, Ceausescu and the Right Reverend Jim Jones are as puzzling to the Latin American Junta mentality dominating the California legislature as they are to the governments of Cuba, Venezuela, Indonesia and the Philippine Islands. But where reason makes no impression, fear is the most convertible currency. Spoiler votes enable the little guy to step up to the plate for a little winning by intimidation to get rid of bad laws and lawmakers.(link)

Dokuro-chan, wielder of Spoiler Vote clout!

Libertarian Spoiler votes, increasing 80% per year since 2008

California votes Democratic not because only 1% of its population can write down the definition of energy, or convert Fahrenheit to Centigrade, but because they imagine the only alternative is book-burning Republicans eager to ban birth control, burn Beatles albums and shoot their kids over plant leaves. But the Libertarian party advocates none of those things, and offers full individual rights to women, hippies, brown people, translators & interpreters! Every spoiler vote invested in the Libertarian party goes to cover the gap between some devout Democratic looter and a fanatical Republican Sharia lawyer.(link) Making the worst bastard lose is how the Libertarian party has been changing the laws since 1972, shortly before our plank became the Roe v. Wade decision.(link)

Interpreters, write your California legislooters: 

Dear Comrade/Cumpai (name or handle), until such time as the AB 5 law forcing translators and interpreters to suck up to artificial persons or have their work permits torn up, I will be voting for Libertarian Party candidates. In fact, I’ll even send them a donation to help defeat Democratic and Republican communo-fascist fanatics alike. The libertarian party has been doing this since 1972, and look at how voters have reacted to our success in ridding them of your stye of parasitism:

Yours in Schadenfreude (look it up),

A. Libertarian Interpreter!
