SOTOMAYOR, J., dissenting

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES

No. 21A24

WHOLE WOMAN’S HEALTH ET AL. v. AUSTIN REEVE JACKSON, JUDGE, ET AL.

ON APPLICATION FOR INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

[September 1, 2021]

JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR, with whom JUSTICE BREYER and JUSTICE KAGAN join, dissenting.

The Court’s order is stunning. Presented with an application to enjoin a flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny, a majority of Justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand. Last night, the Court silently acquiesced in a State’s enactment of a law that flouts nearly 50 years of federal precedents. Today, the Court belatedly explains that it declined to grant relief because of procedural complexities of the State’s own invention. Ante, at 1. Because the Court’s failure to act rewards tactics designed to avoid judicial review and inflicts significant harm on the applicants and on women seeking abortions in Texas, I dissent.

In May 2021, the Texas Legislature enacted S. B. 8 (the Act). The Act, which took effect statewide at midnight on September 1, makes it unlawful for physicians to perform abortions if they either detect cardiac activity in an embryo or fail to perform a test to detect such activity. §3 (to be codified at Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. §§171.201(1), 171.204(a) (West 2021)). This equates to a near-categorical ban on abortions beginning six weeks after a woman’s last menstrual period, before many women realize they are pregnant, and months before fetal viability. According to the applicants, who are abortion providers and advocates in Texas, the Act immediately prohibits care for at least 85% of Texas abortion patients and will force many abortion clinics to close.

The Act is clearly unconstitutional under existing precedents. See, e.g., June Medical Servs. L. L. C. v. Russo, 591 U. S. ___, ___ (2020) (ROBERTS, C. J., concurring in judgment) (slip op., at 5) (explaining that “the State may not impose an undue burden on the woman’s ability to obtain an abortion” of a “nonviable fetus” (citing Roe v. Wade, 410 U. S. 113 (1973), and Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pa. v. Casey, 505 U. S. 833 (1992); internal quotation marks omitted)). The respondents do not even try to argue otherwise. Nor could they: No federal appellate court has upheld such a comprehensive prohibition on abortions before viability under current law.

The Texas Legislature was well aware of this binding precedent. To circumvent it, the Legislature took the extraordinary step of enlisting private citizens to do what the State could not. The Act authorizes any private citizen to file a lawsuit against any person who provides an abortion in violation of the Act, “aids or abets” such an abortion (including by paying for it) regardless of whether they know the abortion is prohibited under the Act, or even intends to engage in such conduct. §3 (to be codified at Tex. Health & Safety Code Ann. §171.208). Courts are required to enjoin the defendant from engaging in these actions in the future and to award the private-citizen plaintiff at least $10,000 in “statutory damages” for each forbidden abortion performed or aided by the defendant. Ibid. In effect, the Texas Legislature has deputized the State’s citizens as bounty hunters, offering them cash prizes for civilly prosecuting their neighbors’ medical procedures.

The Legislature fashioned this scheme because federal constitutional challenges to state laws ordinarily are brought against state officers who are in charge of enforcing the law. See, e.g., Virginia Office for Protection and Advocacy v. Stewart, 563 U. S. 247, 254 (2011) (citing Ex parte Young, 209 U. S. 123 (1908)). By prohibiting state officers from enforcing the Act directly and relying instead on citizen bounty hunters, the Legislature sought to make it more complicated for federal courts to enjoin the Act on a statewide basis.

Taken together, the Act is a breathtaking act of defiance—of the Constitution, of this Court’s precedents, and of the rights of women seeking abortions throughout Texas. But over six weeks after the applicants filed suit to prevent the Act from taking effect, a Fifth Circuit panel abruptly stayed all proceedings before the District Court and vacated a preliminary injunction hearing that was scheduled to begin on Monday. The applicants requested emergency relief from this Court, but the Court said nothing. The Act took effect at midnight last night.

Today, the Court finally tells the Nation that it declined to act because, in short, the State’s gambit worked. The structure of the State’s scheme, the Court reasons, raises “complex and novel antecedent procedural questions” that counsel against granting the application, ante, at 1, just as the State intended. This is untenable. It cannot be the case that a State can evade federal judicial scrutiny by outsourcing the enforcement of unconstitutional laws to its citizenry. Moreover, the District Court held this case justiciable in a thorough and well-reasoned opinion after weeks of briefing and consideration. At a minimum, this Court should have stayed implementation of the Act to allow the lower courts to evaluate these issues in the normal course. Instead, the Court has rewarded the State’s effort to delay federal review of a plainly unconstitutional statute, enacted in disregard of the Court’s precedents, through procedural entanglements of the State’s own creation.

The Court should not be so content to ignore its constitutional obligations to protect not only the rights of women, but also the sanctity of its precedents and of the rule of law.

I dissent. * * *

Libertariantranslator: Certiorari was denied largely because the “defendants” are shills overtly offering to test a law contrived to baffle scrutiny while violating individual rights. Such law-testing is common and many bad laws have collapsed under scrutiny of test cases. Yet what we are seeing today is the National Socialist males, the ones mostly packing the court on behalf of Positive Christianity, blocking the freedom of female Associate Justices to speak without interruption.

The looter media struggle to hammer all controversy into a contest between “conservative” (christian national socialist) and “liberal” (something they do not even know existed in 1931). Here are some examples of what the Liberal Party of America published in its 1931 platform under Comstock Law censorship.

On the WCTU voting to publicly shame women: Surely these cruel, meddling women are neither Christian nor temperate; rather are they controlled by a prompting of sadism—the joy that comes from inflicting pain on others.

On Opinions and Social Pressure: Now, after five years, a man can speak on these topics without being burnt at the stake–not because there is more tolerance, but because so many people have adopted his views and are not afraid to say so.

On entrenched Soft Machines: We urged the men and women of our State to throw party loyaoty to the winds and vote on a principle which the older parties consistently ignored.

On coercive redistribution: Men and women who get on the dole system will never get off it. It kills independence and respect and permanently pauperizes the citizens whose immediate needs it means to alleviate.

On “vice” entrapment: Innocent men and women are every day molested, arrested, shot, or killed in their homes, or on the public highways, by the agents who, spending the people’s money in debauchery, register under false names at hotels, purchase liquor from irresponsible persons, and drink it; gamble at night clubs, where they pay decoy money to women; and at nightfall roost on fire escapes, like foul vultures, peering into the windows of hotel bedrooms for a clue that will lead to the arrest of unwary travelers. They establish saloons and gambling dens, where they arrest their patrons with a gleeful boast of successful enforcement. They employ young girls of high-school age to get drunk and pass their nights with men under suspicion, who are to be trapped.

On national Prohibition: With murder in their hearts they put poison in alcohol to kill the people who convert it into beverage, and with the glee of a modern Borgia they have killed thousands in that way. On the high seas they shoot their fleeing prey without giving them a chance, and twenty of them at one time get drunk on confiscated liquor. And all this with the inconceivable connivance of the Government at Washington, with money appropriated by Congress for that purpose. Every week they send one thousand men and women to the penitentiary through a law which has outraged the science of jurisprudence; and under that law virtually every citizen in this land is trailed by hired spies in every step that he takes in the pursuance of his daily work, and put in danger of arrest on the mere suspicion and strong hope of his doing that which men have followed with temperate pleasure from the ancient dawn of time.

On the Supreme Court: We shall ask from them a hearing upon every question that opens the way for the examination of the subject by that body, with the hope of leading to the rejection of the Eighteenth Amendment by judicial decision as being in itself, in its statutory form, where the power to legislate has been frozen, a violation of the constitutional rights of the people.
The correction of this deplorable experiment in fanatical tyranny through an ignoble law will restore the personal liberty which has been taken away, reduce general taxation through the revenues which will accrue to the Government, provide a market for the farmer’s surplus grain, furnish employment in harvesting, handling, and transportation to a million men, put an end to the most lucrative method of political graft, destroy the foremost incentive to crime, and end the national hypocrisy which has brought upon us the contempt of the world.

The only party today that is even remotely liberal is the Libertarian Party of America.

007 Spoiler Votes

Seven Bond books became movies before the Libertarian Party published its 1972 laissez-faire platform.

Reason magazine began challenging The Kleptocracy back in 1968, and probably convinced most of our fewer than 4000 voters to back the platform. That single, conscience-driven electoral vote was a shot across the bow of a Kleptocracy busily gorging on George Wallace Dixiecrat racial collectivism, foreign entanglement warmongering and girl-bullying xenophobia. Reason helped increase that to over 4 million votes, increasing 80% per annum by 2016. This James Bond satire is a sample of their output.(link)

Since 2016, infiltrators hacking the platform for importation of terrorists and taxation of citizens to support actual confessed or in flagrante murderers have temporarily paralyzed our growth. So when in doubt about new planks or communist anarchist candidate-impersonators, why not donate instead to the Reason Foundation? It’s the one move you’ll not regret.

Prohibition II at 64

Sound familiar? See original Antifa-Chad story (link)

Republican Gov. Ronald Reagan must’ve been horrified when young people turned away from revenue-generating heroin and opium to tasteless, colorless, odorless, harmless LSD – which was legal as sea salt at the time–in 1967.

It took three years of police beatings, infiltration and extortion for governments to change domicile flower children into individuals that were often a match for their own hired muscle. The news article tells the story:

Skippies – Tough Hippies – New Los Angeles Headache. LOS ANGELES – first beatniks, then hippies, and now Skippies. Laurel Canyon in a fashionable section of Los Angeles is home base for skippies, hippie -looking youths so named by Canyon residents for their reputation for skipping out on everything – EDUCATION, JOBS AND RENT.
Unlike their hippie look-alikes, the Skippies are described as harder, tougher than early flower children. And their appearance in Laurel Canyon has coincided, authorities say, with a sudden rise in the number of brushfires and burglaries and a burgeoning narcotics problem. [Sound familiar? After another 50 years of superstitious and violent prohibition laws, the same phenomenon has spread northward all the way through Portland to the Canadian border. Clearly California voters and the Federal Kleptocracy prefer this state of affairs to freedom and individual rights.]

All of California has been smoky with brushfires for years now, while looter politicians point to the hobgoblin of global warming as the evident culprit. Voters in California have alternated between the two halves of the looter kleptocracy these past 64 years, and wildfires have increased, litter is everywhere, and bands of violent ragamuffins take over entire boroughs and bankrupt the landlords now getting the initiation of force they voted for and deserve.
Might this be a good time to rethink these policies? Surely 64 years is a valid test of the Third Law of Politics:

For every initiation of force, there is unequal yet apposite reprisal force.

Austin Texas also enjoyed a hippie subculture at that same time. Kleptocracy governors John Connally, Adolph Briscoe and Bill Clements gleefully adopted shoot-first prohibitionism and competed with federal press gangs in the incarceration of victimless youths in prison cells and involuntary servitude in Southeast Asia. Right above the Lewiston Sun Article on coercion-hardened Skippies is an article on Women being bought and sold in Soviet Turkmenistan. See if this doesn’t remind you of Texas’ new Red Republican Wife-Beating and Girl-Bullying law:

Government Assails Bride Buying Still Practiced in Soviet. MOSCOW, AP –Yazbul Yagmureva was a champion cotton picker, a hero of Socialist labor, until her parents sold her in marriage. Her father got a nice sum of rubles, some sheep and cattle. Her husband said he wasn’t going to have his wife working on a cotton-picking collective, and Yazbul was “wrenched from her beloved labors” near Bayrim Ali.
“Was her song finished?” Asked the Communist Party organ Pravda. “No. Inspired by party appeals to fight against the old ways and remove obstacles from collective labor, Yazbul found the power to go back to work again and show her abilities.
“Now she heads a team of grape growers at another collective. Her team gets the highest yield, she is the mother of six and a candidate member of the Communist Party.” (link)

Texas: Involuntary servitude and forced labor (link)

Republicans have spurned Libertarian ways and returned to their roots, so grimly portrayed by Harriett Beecher Stowe, when Red Republicans were the starry-eyed Christian Socialists transfixed by Uncle Tom’s Cabin and eager for their own place in The Kleptocracy. In 2021 bounty hunters, gun in hand, scour the Texas desert, scrubland and brush country in search of girls to bully, while male Supreme Court justices grin in amusement and the New Turkmenistani Associate Justice meekly abets their masculine dereliction.(link) After all… didn’t Texans get exactly what their majority voted for?

The Anti-Leftist Smear

The Forgotten Cover Art (link)

For starters, this relatively new variation on the Argument from Intimidation actually works.(link) California voters had the opportunity to strike down a dishonest and incompetent looter politician, yet were defeated by a combination of chaff and binary collectivism. The chaff, like tinfoil dropped from bombers to confuse the enemy radar came in the form of a couple-dozen granola aspirants added to the ballot to disperse and scatter any opposition to the soft machine. But the more important strategy was a variation on The Forgotten Man.

The Forgotten Man you will recall, is that unremarkable individual to whom William Graham Sumner first called attention in an essay by that same name.(link) It is the man who is neither communist nor National Socialist, who minds his own business rather than meddle forcibly in the lives of others–and keeps his promises. This early reference to the libertarian personality was written by one of America’s most signal defenders of individual rights. Sumner was actually attacked and beaten with a stick by a Dixie Democrat for daring to suggest that black people also had individual rights.(link) FDR went to special lengths to pollute and obfuscate The Forgotten Man by equivocation with unemployable collectivist rabble whose votes he sought to divert from the communist parties.(link)

Nowadays, the Forgotten Man or Woman is invariably the Libertarian party candidate. In the California case, this was Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Hewitt, already working as an elected official in the state of California. Hewitt’s name was carefully elided from all public mention–even by Reason magazine–until just before the election, when it was too late to make any difference. Attention focused on a carbon copy of the Long Dong Silver candidate, an African-American Republican–a species nowadays about as common as an African-American running mate for George Wallace in the 1960s. That Dog Bites Man play was startling enough to actually work when it came time to confirm another girl-bullying prohibitionist to the Supreme Court in 1991.

Fake Hints that Clarence Thomas was an Ayn Rand fan disarmed opposition from defenders of individual rights for women. Thomas’ wig and nose were powdered and confirmed despite Anita Hill’s warnings. So another girl-bullier set to work helping Nixon appointees reinstate Comstock laws stripping women of individuality; essentially condemning them to involuntary labor like Sumner’s pitiable “harlot of slavery.”(link) Suddenly it was as if the 9th, 13th and 14th Amendments had never existed. The Libertarian Party promptly resumed its growth and hardly anyone but televangelical drug agents voted Republican.

God’s Own Prohibitionists, now at a loss to describe their boy in objectively positive terms after the California recall campaign, have–in desperation–taken to referring to the loser as “anti-leftist.” “Republican” has had more vote-getting appeal than “Christian National Socialist” in US elections after 1928 er… 1952. Today “anti-leftist” is a tarbrush wide enough to soil libertarians into presumptive association with Republicans, Nazis, and Spanish, Italian and Romanian fascists. To anyone who does not expect the truth from 2D looter politicians, this “winning by elimination” makes sense. Nixon understood perfectly that the Libertarian Party was the greatest threat ever to his force-initiating soft machine and struggled to have us ignored.(link)

Within 24 hours Nixon had the IRS subsidize non-libertarian parties to freeze out any growth of political freedom.(link) A way was then found to delete the Libertarian Roe v Wade plank–so attractive to women in the 1972 and 1976 libertarian platforms–and replace it with lame verbiage encouraging child molesters and openly inviting foreign terrorists to disregard national borders. Nixon subsidies, plus GOP and anarcho-communist infiltration, retarded but did not reverse, the growth of the Libertarian party–until the looters were driven to desperate measures by 4 million Libertarian spoiler votes in the 2016 election. After that, Fifth Column sleepers were activated and vote-repellent planks and candidates injected at all hazards. THAT got results:

Libertarian voters are outnumbered 32 to 1, but a single libertarian vote suffices to nullify 75% of the mass hypnotic effect of social pressure that causes folks to waste their votes on force-initiating authoritarians. One supporting partner in the Solomon Asch experiment caused test subjects to err 75% less often. Your libertarian vote can give 24 of those 32 benighted voters the gumption it takes to vote for freedom.(link)

Libertarian Party of Canada

In 1790 Canada was OK with hemp (link)

Are you are tired of wasting money on a Libertarian National Committee temporarily controlled and populated by rejects from the Democratic-Republican Kleptocracy? Then consider supporting a Canadian Libertarian candidate.(link)

Though it is legal for Americans to join England’s Libertarian Party, a way has been found–perhaps in horror of the hostile takeover of our own LP by girl-bullying fanatics and no-borders communist anarchists–to close Canada’s LP to yanks. Joining is not as heinous a felony as being less than smart about filing the politicians’ taxes. As an ignorant youth I tried it and only afterward learnt it was taboo. Still, honest Americans friendly with the peaceful tribes of Quebec and Ontario can be counted on to find ways to cultivate Libertarian Spoiler votes along our longest border with a country into which Americans flee Republican and Democratic party press gangs.(link)

In 1972 there was one Libertarian Party on Planet Earth. Wielding fewer than 4000 spoiler votes, it promptly got the Supreme Court to abolish the last vestige of girl-bullying Comstock laws passed during the military occupation government schools describe as “Reconstruction.”(link) The Selective Service Act by which politicians stay home and force citizens into harm’s way at gunpoint has so far escaped repeal through a Gentleman’s Agreement making it obtrude less pointedly upon the notice of its intended victims for the time being. This is because abolishing the draft is in the platforms of thousands of Libertarian Parties thriving and multiplying throughout the myriad counties and parishes of all 50 of These Sovereign States and most civilized countries.

This logistics replacement S-curve scared the krap out of the Kleptocracy!(link)

By 2016, the Libertarian share of the presidential vote had increased a thousandfold to 4 million–despite the Nixon law providing tax subsidies to the entrenched looter Kleptocracy since the day the LP was founded.(link) Canada’s Libertarian Party formed in 1973, and for decades Canada’s legacy parties have enforced no laws threatening doctors and banning medical birth control, just as our own force-initiating parties dare not so much as mention “the draft.”(link)

Until the current crop of collaborationists, saboteurs and infiltrators busily wrecking the U.S. Libertarian Party (to the sound of whoops of joy from fascist and anarcho-communist pressure groups) are winnowed out, cash donations to the Party of Freedom on the other side of America’s friendliest border are a good investment in the future of freedom.(link) If you know of an unaffiliated county LP still defending our principles, please let me know so I can spread the word.

It is a stain on America’s honor that the entrenched parties of aggression and depredation that caused the Great Depression–through their use of the violence of law to infringe the freedom of production and trade–have managed to export the Nixon law forcing honest people to subsidize soft machines in “elections” that rob and coerce them. The resulting hyperinflation, Crashes and Depressions wreck their economies, entrench rule by juntas, and drive hordes of terrified economic refugees seeking to flee into These States and the Provinces of Canada.(link)

Libertarian Defense Caucus, 1982

Libertarians resist assimilation by looters

LP for Disarmament?
On November 8, 1981, the Libertarian National Committee adopted two resolutions – one resolving to dismantle US ICBMs, withdraw nuclear arms from NATO, and calling for a freeze on all nuclear weapons activity; and a second resolving to denounce the AWACS sale to Saudi Arabia – has reported in the November-December 1981 issue of LIBERTARIAN PARTY NEWS.
The author of the resolution was Sheldon Richman, who proposed disarmament planks at the 1981 Denver LP convention. A poll taken at the convention showed that libertarians strongly opposed disarmament. (…)

Commentary, by Egan O’Connor (the following was originally presented as a letter to CALIBER, the publication of the California LP, in response to an article by Jeffrey Rogers Hummel. The opinion expressed here does not necessarily reflect the views of the LDC.–MJD) (good article omitted to avoid copyright claims… pp 3, 4)

Disinformation Bureau
RE: “Derailing the Anti-Soviet Locomotive” by Sheldon Richman, INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, January, 1982 (publication of the Society for Individual Liberty) This critique of Richman’s weak B.S. is omitted lest anyone retaliate with copyright claims… It closes with “Mr Richman has conspicuously advocated nuclear disarmament, but a poll taken at the Denver convention indicated that this position was disapproved by the membership by a 2-to-1 majority.” (FRONTLINES, February 1982 …)

Editorial ~ Perspective
As Editor, I welcome you to the first issue of the Libertarian Defense Caucus newsletter, named AMERICAN DEFENSE in honor of the firm principle of a free society; self-preservation from foreign aggressors. I think it is incumbent on me to explain the objectives of this publication and give some indication of the themes that will be expressed here in future issues.
(1) As a newsletter, we will try to keep you, the reader, abreast of current developments respecting the fortunes, and activities of the LDC–as well as reporting on the evolution of Libertarian Party policy on the subject of national defense.
(2) As a publication of the LDC, we will offer a forum for the expression of outspoken, unorthodox, and controversial libertarian viewpoints on defense and how It may most effectively be obtained for this country. Ms. O’Connor’s article on page 2 is an excellent opening comment.
(3) Because many libertarians lack knowledge of defense matters, and because misconceptions abound within the movement and the Party, the newsletter will present regular articles that provide important information on matters relating to relating to defense, The “Disinformation Bureau” will highlight recent statements or arguments that contain false or prejudicial claims about defense, and will offer background factual material for the reader’s impartial judgement.
(4) To facilitate the purposes of the LDC as an LP caucus, the newsletter will feature articles that analyse the LP platform planks concerning defense policy and foreign policy. Recommendations for platform revisions or corrections will be offered for the readers’ consideration.
(5) Most libertarians favor a strong national defense–yet the Party seems to endorse a policy of virtual disarmament. This situation has come about because the libertarians who favor a strong defense have lost their voices through doubt and intimidation. They have been made to feel ashamed of their convictions by those liber­tarians who, like the Bolsheviks of old, are trying to represent their minority opinion as being the “majority” viewpoint. We of the LDC intend to reverse this process and give voice to the true feelings of the LP membership, whereby they may speak out proudly in favor of defending their land, and the people that they love, and the Constitution that has given us greater freedom than history has ever before recorded. This newsletter will attempt to be the ve­hicle of communication among pro-defense libertarians, that we may all know and be confirmed in our belief that those who love liberty will agree with us.
As Editor, I will do my best to honor fact above prejudice, to be fair in the face of strong disagreement, and to address the readership with candor and clear prose I promise to render my product according to the highest standard I can envision. In return, I expect from you, the reader, a critical eye and the willingness to point out correction when it in due.
In closing, I warn you to be prepared for bitter accusations that, by supporting a strong defense, you are betraying libertarianism. Take heart in the knowledge that freedom is worth fighting for . — Michael J. Dunn

This sampling is from the Libertarian Defense Caucus I joined in 1981 while living in Boulder and working for Petr Beckmann’s Access to Energy and The Golem Press. There was no Internet. A modem was a newfangled gadget Professor Beckmann brought into the mailing room to connect us with his house on Star Route. While explaining how it worked he fooked it up to wall current. With a flash and a spark the thing ejected a mushroom cloud a yard high, the exact shape of the one that rose over Hiroshima 4 years and 4 months after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

I am trying to reestablish contact with other LDC members. The LP is again infiltrated by communist anarchists (there is no other kind). At a glance you can see how voters react to the 2018 planks inviting infected terrorists to enter the U.S. uninspected and advocating vigilante lynchings and tax-supported room and board for confessed and convicted murderers.

1920 same as 2020

Record labels: Militarism, “Free” Trade, Government Ownership, Expansion (link)

The Nixon election subsidies law suppressing access to the Libertarian party has again trapped America in a circular repetition of history.(link) The same thing happened in Germany after that country’s pathetic defeat in World War I. See if this 1920 newspaper account sounds strangely familiar…

DEMOCRATIZING GERMANY. Most of the news coming from Germany nowadays, of whatever nature, seems to arouse little interest. The American public is rather “fed up” on Germany. Here, however, is a bit of news worth noticing.
The Berlin Board of Education is said to have started a thorough cleaning up of the school libraries, removing whatever books are found “contradictory to the new spirit of the times.”

What books, then, are being removed? “All books of a shamanistic, imperialistic, militaristic, nationalistic, monarchistic, and anti-Semitic nature.”

Surely, here is proof that Germany is getting somewhere. The foundation of the old German militarism was laid in the public schools. Every schoolboy has it didn’t into his ears that Germany was “the Fatherland, surrounded by foes.” Intense, narrow nationalism, hatred of other races, love of military display, worship of armed strength, the divine origin of German autocracy, all of these were taught as educational gospel. Now, if the news is true, they are all banned.

The springs of national thought and feeling are no longer to be poisoned. There is to be room and opportunity for the development of real democracy, a truer outlook on life and a more sane and generous appreciation of other races. Source: Berkeley daily Gazette January 23, 1920 – page four.

* * *

Both America and Germany were at the time trapped by political Kleptocracies empowered by the notion that there is something good about altruism and the sacrificing of freedom on the altar of duty and the initiation of deadly force. Less than 20 years of altruist prohibitionism, censorship, predatory communistic taxation, and bans on speech, movies, books and bawdiness were all it took for Krupp cannons to in 1939 again splatter destruction all over Europe and drag These United States into yet another foreign war–this one ended by nuclear weapons.

Only in 1947, with journalists again tut-tutting about German tendencies and tenured professors hand-wringing about how morality was trailing behind science did anyone dare to question the inherent goodness of altruism and suggest that the initiation of force was no longer worth the consequences.(link)

Libertarian-impersonator resigns!

Mr. Henchman,
I am writing to request your resignation from the LNC (Libertarian National Committee).(link)

I have no idea whether you are an impostor, hostile infiltrator, spy, traitor, plant, agent provocateur or fool. The function of spoiler votes has been published and out in the open for a full 12 years now. Yet you pretend we are a jobs agency for wannabe politicians.(link)

Our job at this position on the logistics replacement curve is to minimize coercion by publishing a good platform and running candidates to defend that platform. Fratricidal efforts by the looter factions will do the rest of the work for us. You, however, are a liability to this effort, whereas Bill Weld is an asset.(link)

If you do not believe me try your hand at running for at-large elected office rather than working to destroy our platform. Your votes are still welcome, but your resolutions, advice and meddling aren’t.(link)

In any case, this is a formal request, perhaps the first of many, from a card-carrying, dues-paying Libertarian party volunteer and member of long standing. I’ll be happy to put this on parchment and publish it before the world.
Cheerfully,
jhenryphillips.com, Thursday, February 7, 2019, 11:15 AM.

Voters clearly repelled by no-borders anarchism, mercenary executions plank, and batshit-loser albatross for VP (link)

Reason Magazine announced on June 23, 2021:
“Joseph Bishop-Henchman resigned Friday as chair of the Libertarian National Committee…” (link)
Needless to say I was thrilled, though disappointed it took the brood parasite 2 years, 4 months and 3 weeks to finally resign. I am indebted to the New Hampshire LP for whatever it was that accomplished what needed to be done.

For the record, I have volunteered for the Travis County Libertarian Party since 1983, pay dues and volunteered for the Libertarian Defense Caucus since 1982, paid dues and supported LPs and candidates since that time, thanks to Petr Beckman convincing me it was right.(link)

In Austin, Texas, Travis County, communist anarchist Spike dragged Jo to last place!

Henchman, Spike, Vermin, Secretary Tokyo Rose et alii are a replay of communist anarchist infiltrator Jeff Hummel, whom Fred Ebner identified as a candidate for agent provocateur and saboteur in the Travis County Party. Search the Google News archives or any other compendium of newspapers from the last 200 years and you will see that up until 1971, all anarchists describe themselves as communists and socialists, and all journalists understood that communists, anarchists and socialists (national and international) are the same thing compared to laissez-faire free traders, Objectivists and libertarians.

Since The Terror, A is a subset of C

It was only after we formed the party that violent, legalize-murder communists baptized themselves soi disant libertarians, and began the work of polluting the original 1972 platform with idiotic planks designed to repel voters.(link) They have likewise been instrumental in deleting the plank that protected women from the bloody-coathanger Dixiecrat fanaticism of George Wallace partisans, and striving to undermine the Second Amendment in favor of “treaties” with communo-fascist dictatorships.(link)

Law-changing Spoiler Vote

Tonie Nathan? Sarah Weddington? Linda Coffey? You?

Not so long ago, in a galaxy much like our own, a planet ruled by the parties of Richard Nignew, George Wallace and Nicky Ceausescu enslaved young males as invasion forces, shot or imprisoned people for the wrong plant extracts and enforced Comstock Laws impressing women into involuntary labor of reproduction and censoring all media.(link) Rebel partisans have organized the first Libertarian Party to neutralize the initiation of deadly force. Their 4000 votes merited judicial notice at the Supreme Court and that party’s Population plank was rewritten into a ruling that no State may send men with guns to threaten physicians so as to coerce women into involuntary servitude.

Fanatical proponents of racial eugenics, sacrificial suffering, lethal altruism, militaristic enslavement, totalitarian control of all trade and production and race-suicide bigotry have since that time sought to disarm and tax the population to exact cash subsidies to purchase votes for force-initiating Kleptocracy parties. At first these efforts only delayed progress toward freedom.

But after the Libertarian Party changed the outcome of the 2016 election by getting more votes than the difference between the entrenched Kleptocracy parties, a way was found to help a faction based on a Hun in a Hitler mustache take over the Libertarian National Committee. Anarchist communists masqueraded as Libertarians on many ballots, and the outcome was what you’d expect from host-parasite infiltration and sabotage:
Remember that when choosing delegates to send to the next national convention. Meanwhile, I am avoiding county and State parties that have been co-opted into the legalize-murder, no-borders, anarcho-communist usurpation efforts. We have been infiltrated and sabotaged before and rose again. The Libertarian statement of Principles will again restore an approximation of the original Brave New Party.

Why ranked voting?

Racial collectivist spoiler votes dismembered the Solid South

All major changes in America since 1840 have come from the platforms of small parties. Sometimes these parties themselves became Soft Machines in their own right or remakes of earlier Soft Machines whose names became associated with excessive corrupt venality and parasitism. Big Government Federalists collapsed and reformed first as Whigs, then as Red Republicans. Smaller parties, typically formed around a particular issue, in every case end up winning either by swallowing a legacy half of The Kleptocracy or by causing it to incorporate them and their platform as its own–as occurred when Nixon Republicans incorporated George Wallace Dixiecrats (complete with watered-down racial collectivism and prohibitionism) over the course of the 1968 and 1972 elections.

During those same elections the laissez-faire youth movement, with its Human Rights and Buffalo Party factions, was gradually submerged by Democrats pushing the sort of unionized socialist, socialist labor and communist parties that had multiplied sevenfold after FDR beat Herbert Hoover. Republicans absorbed the Prohibition Party and KKK in 1928 and 1932, enacting confiscatory policies that wrecked the banking system, then the entire economy. The Great Depression increased Communist Party membership till it practically swamped the FDR Administration. Activists concerned with repeal of cruel laws were submerged by established looter parties advocating a planned economy no less coercive than that of the Republican-Prohibition coalition of the Progressive Era and Roaring Twenties.

Dixiecrats divided the Dems after the JFK assassination and Vietnam debacle

The only real change has been the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law of 1971, using the IRS to subsidize anti-libertarian party campaigns no matter how lamentable or deadly their aims. Now, suddenly, lobbyists for a gauntlet-style election process that lines up candidates and ranks them by the amount of hatred or adoration they elicit in extremely complicated processes intended to replace runoffs after close elections.

Speculative math aside, my question is: when was the last time a libertarian candidate won a ranked/gauntlet election? 

If never is the answer, I’d love to know how LP candidates did percentage-wise compared to earlier non-gauntlet elections in the same precincts.

The recent drop in Libertarian spoiler votes occurred in exactly the same electoral environment as our 328% gain in 2016–with rival Kleptocracy factions shrieking election fraud when defeated. The only difference were the anarchist plank to invite more terrorists and welfare state failures across the border, and the anarchist plank intended to replace execution of mass murderers with vigilante violence. Both of these planks–plus an ignorant anti-libertarian nihilist candidate on the top ticket–served to alienate 2/3 of the voters who eagerly supported the Libertarian Party in 2016.

Ranked gauntlet voting will not restore the popularity of a Libertarian Party given over entirely to communist, anarchist and nihilist orators. In fact, its adoption in internal LP elections resulted in appalling losses of lamentable national candidates even when state and local candidates fared well after having themselves been selected the way that worked for the two centuries preceding Nixon’s election subsidies law.

So what evidence from reality shows gauntlet voting has ever helped further reduction of the initiation of force?
