Legalize Peyote, LP.org

Peyote was banned by H.R. 13645 legislation was passed by the U.S. 70th Congressional session and enacted into law by 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, on Saturday, January 19, 1929.

For fuller context on those trying times, Coolidge signed the Jones Five and Ten law the day before Herbert Hoover was sworn in. This law made light beer a federal felony.  That meant as many as five years in the penitentiary and a $10,000 fine, an amount that would buy 15 pounds of gold worth $297,000 at today’s prices.  A week before the law passed, Representative Emanuel Celler [Dem. NY] sarcastically offered to “satisfy the fanatical cruelty of the professional prohibitionists, who are apparently drunk with power,” and offered to propose that violators should be punished by “hanging, the body to be cut down while still alive, and the accused, to be disemboweled, his head cut off and his body quartered.” (Chicago Tribune  2/23/29 6) Here’s what resulted (besides the collapse of the economy):

Nixon, also a Quaker, made this worse...

This does not include people on State chain gangs or held in foreign dictatorships

The Libertarian Party has since 1972 demanded the repeal of victimless crime laws prohibiting peyote, mescalin, psilocybin, LSD, birth control pills and other relatively harmless (compared to beer) drugs. Your vote can frighten looter party politicians whose paychecks hang in the balance between legalization and continued cruel robbery. Every spoiler vote for the libertarian party carries on average the law-changing clout of 21 votes wasted on the nearly identical kleptocracy parties. This is because what kleptocracy parties care about is getting their gang on the payroll with a snout in the trough. As long as sending your kids to prison gets them votes, they will keep sending your kids to prison. Remember attorneys fees and bail bonds when you see LIB on the ballot!

The Libertarian Party just won nearly 4 million votes–way more than the 3 million the Democrats claim to have “won” by in 2016. The changed the outcome of 127 electoral vote counts in 13 states. There we got more than the difference between the winning and losing looter politicians. Those politicians remember this and will change their platforms and many laws before the next general election.

Voters remember that thousands are rotting in prison or living in fear–stripped of rights–because of cruel bipartisan prohibition laws. You must choose whether to betray these innocents branded as criminals into continued suffering or to make known you want America to be free. Losing is what happens when cowards endorse the two prohibitionist soft machines instead of loudly and unequivocally casting a multiply-leveraged vote for individual rights and freedom. Repealing bad laws, THAT’s winning!

Romanian Comstock laws

Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz!

National and international socialism united!

Romania struck down its Comstock laws and legalized female individual rights back in the 1950s, before there were birth-control pills. Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu in 1966 decreed American-style Comstock coercion of the sort President Grant had signed in 1873. Both laws banned pregnancy termination, contraceptives, publications or even private speech about such subjects and provided fines and imprisonment. The Romanian birth rate doubled in 1967, and the maternal mortality rate tripled under Ceausescu’s use of national State coercion to ward off the “race suicide” danger Republican Theodore Roosevelt penned, opening the gates for collectivist eugenics with forced labor replacing the individual rights of women.

As alike as peas in a pod

Ford, Nixon and Ceausescu, before defeat, impeachment and execution

Ceausescu immediately became the fair-haired boy of the Republican party. Nixon in 1972 made a point of aping Ceausescu’s visit to China the previous year. Dixiecrats sought to emulate Ceausescu’s Lebensborn policy of stripping women of rights and sending them into forced labor. This they accomplished by threatening (and occasionally shooting) physicians. As late as 1983, Republican Vice President George H. W. Bush referred to Ceausescu as “the good communist”.

But disaster struck in 1972 when nearly 4000 voters (and one elector) cast ballots for the Libertarian Party platform, which said:

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

After the votes were counted the Supreme Court ruled in Roe v Wade:

“(a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman’s attending physician. …”

The Republicans and their mentors, the Prohibition Party, had by next election composed another Force Amendment to undo the Supreme Court’s repudiation of the Comstock laws they’d managed to get past the Reconstruction Congress in 1873. This demand for a force Amendment has been parroted for 45 years, since the first election following the Roe v. Wade decision. The 2016 version recites:

“We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.”

The Prohibition party has dropped this plank and opted to instead support the Gospel of Global Warming. But like Rumanian communism or an Orwellian Inner Party, the Republican party faithful look at the Fourteenth Amendment’s “All persons born” and see instead “All ova fertilized…”. No clearer example of the self-deception that forms the basis of totalitarian altruism has ever been presented.

Republicans Fear LP Spoiler votes

Lose the looter planks or lose the election

Law-changing spoiler votes

Nixon’s Republican Party changed the tax code to pay the media to ignore the Libertarian Party in 1971, the year we were founded. Yet with its first published platform the LP parlayed fewer than 4000 votes into a win for women in the US and Canada.

The LP platform language:

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

was translated by Austin attorney Libby Linebarger into the Roe v. Wade decision

“(a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman’s attending physician. …”

The next election, 1972, both the Republican Party and its spoiler vote controllers demanded a Constitutional Amendment to overturn that Libertarian Party platform plank copied by the Supreme Court. The Prohibitionists have finally given up and are pushing the Global Warming Apocalypso. But Republican partisans are still in a rut as of their 2016 platform:

We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.

The 14th Amendment, by the way, starts by protecting “All persons born”, not all ova fertilized.

God’s Own Prohibitionists have since 2013 had mystical shills penning tear-jerker insinuations at Forbes. After carpetbiting for an Amendment to undo the Libertarian Party’s 1972 plank for 46 years, Republicans now understand that the collectivism of race suicide paranoia is the anvil that is drowning their party. Global Warmunism is the even bigger anvil drowning the Democratic and Econazi parties. Good riddance!

Yet in our battleground states, where Libertarian vote counts are larger than the difference between the Nationalsocialist warriors-for-the-babies and the Soviet socialist energy slave abolitionists, we handed the election to the least coercive candidate, and the looter parties lost those about evenly. Our pro-choice candidate may win the NM senate race, and not just in the usual sense of WINNING by forcing the looters to repeal bad laws (or getting the Supreme Court to strike them down).

Whenever the need arises for a clear translation of what politicians and judges are saying in Spanish or Portuguese, ask me for a bid.

Atlas Shrugged, 2018

Who is John Galt?

Dallas’ looter government ruined Yellow Bike companies with fees, taxes and regulations. Hello Starnesville!

“Nobody can be sure of anything.”

—Rudy Giuliani, asked how he could be sure Trump had no advance knowledge about the June 9th Trump Tower meeting.

Does this sound familiar? Compare…

“Nobody is right, or ever can be.”

—Dr Robert Stadler, Atlas Shrugged.

“Nobody is right or wrong, we’re all in it together, we’re all human—and the human is the imperfect.”

—Lilian Rearden, Atlas Shrugged

“Nobody is fully right or wrong!” “How can we ever be sure of anything?”

—James Taggart, Atlas Shrugged.

Remember the blighted areas in Atlas Shrugged? Places where altruistic politicians sent men with guns to help by militarizing prohibitionism, inducing asset forfeiture as predatory parasitism and replacing choice with coercion? They’re baaaack…

Socialism in Amerika and Germany

Socialists are, as usual, ticked off at The Don Jr. (Disclaimer: this blogger votes libertarian). By quoting a recent comment “both sides” disclose a disconnect between reality and their own brainwashing doled out in government schools.

Here’s the quote:

“You see the Nazi platform in the early 1930s and what was actually put out there, and you look at it compared to, like, the DNC platform of today, and you’re saying, ‘Man, those things are awfully similar,’ to the point where it’s actually scary. To me, that was one of the most striking things I took from the movie because it’s the exact opposite that you’ve been told.” —Donald Trump Jr. on Dinesh D’Souza’s film “Death of a Nation”

Ayn Rand did the same thing back when Kennedy (D) defeated Richard Nixon (R). Random House refused to publish her essay pointing to the ominous parallels between the National Socialist platform penned by Hitler in 1920 and verbiage contained in the Democratic Party platform and JFK speeches. She fired that publisher.** By her lights, Goldwater’s Republican candidacy was sufficient proof that God’s Own Prohibitionists–whatever their other faults–were not out to exterminate Judaism to please the Lutherans and Catholics. In actual fact Goldwater was nominated because the Republican Party was certain the Dems would win that 1964 election, so the empty gesture cost them nothing.

Literate and rational persons who have read the National Socialist program Hitler penned in 1920, his 1924 Mein Kampf, or the 1933 Enabling Act speech to the Reichstag find religious conservative beliefs on just about every page. Germany was 98% Protestant and Catholic when Hitler took office amid applause. Big Pharma needed a belligerent madman to terrify foreign regulators seeking to curb German morphine exports and collect war reparations payments. If Germany’s political leader also frightened pharmaceutical competitors, so much the better. Hitler just happened to suit the purposes of military contractors and drug companies, and the crowds loved him.

It is a safe bet that neither Trump nor his competitors have ever read the NSDAP program which got the National Socialist party in power by 1933. Nazis, Democrats and Republicans all believe that altruism is good. They believe this not from fact, but because of a preacher invented approximately 1968 years ago by primitives writing in a language none of them can read or speak. The folk legend of an altruist purported to have been executed a century and a half earlier than the first mention of his existence suffices to establish altruism and sacrifice as the standard of value for all three parties.

Small wonder then that all three platforms are so similar. But the Democratic platform more closely resembles Norman Thomas’ christian socialism than Adolf Hitler’s version of the same thing. The Republican platform incorporates more German ideology and eugenics than does the Democratic version. But “both” parties (along with all the looter parties of Europe, Asia and Africa) seek to install themselves somewhere on a line extending from Stalinist international socialism on the “left” to Hitlerite nationalsocialism on the “right.” All parties based on altruism and the initiation of force seek to occupy the political predicament of Poland in 1939. The idea of measuring their published platforms’ demands for violence against individual rights and economic freedom on two intersecting axes shocks intellectuals of the looter persuasion.

The result is that large areas of Germany and Austria are even NOW evacuated because of bombs dropped there in the 1940s. Yet no one there understands that those bombs were dropped because of Germanys literal commitment to altruism, sacrifice and the initiation of force.

Orwell’s 1984 was a paean against cowardly acceptance of the Hitler-Stalin Pact on the part of British snobs. Its message is manifestly misunderstood by British and American readers just as the message of those bombs is evaded by Austrians and Germans. That situation is fast changing, thanks to the law-repealing power of Libertarian spoiler votes. Here is a hockey stick depicting the resurgence of reason and choice at the expense of superstition and force.

Econazi v. Econazi

Canadian-born Green Party enthusiast tried in Econazi Germany for questioning “settled history.”

Monika Schaefer (on the right), the perfect Green Party candidate and poster child, is on trial in a post-National Socialist People’s Court for throughtcrime. This highly-redacted  video was her undoing. Germany has no free speech guarantees, and concepts like initiation of force and individual rights are evidently as baffling there as in 1933. The charge is “Volksverhetzung,” an ungoodthinkful sort of incitement to hatred. Volksverhetzung is the perfect vehicle for selective political persecution. It’s even money that before the year is out indictments will be true-billed for wondering aloud why there is no ozone hole at the North Pole, in the hemisphere where 8/9 of humanity live. Indeed, to question whether eco-Gestapo-ordered replacements for regular freon cause air conditioners to fail–making folks feel like climate is getting warmer–ought to be good for at least a 5-year prison term. 

Circulating graphs of tampered-with ground thermometer measurements compared with satellite data ought to be good for a prison terms plus some asset forfeiture and heavy fines.
The German penchant for forced labor instead of Buckminster Fuller “energy slaves” has already led new-left and econazi politicos to legislate the shutdown of demonically-possessed nuclear power plants that generate no carbon dioxide but (gasp!) increase the supply of electrical power.

The prewar English translation of “Mein Kampf” recommended “extirpation” of all things Jewish in the name of altruist collectivism. Postwar editions changed the operative term to “extermination.”  Surely there is a clue about Holocaust eugenics to be had in the published works of politicians elected to office and preferred by those huge Christian majorities in Germany and Austria.

If ever in need of technical translations from Spanish, Portuguese or English involving mining or nuclear energy, look me up.

Republicans banned ALL birth control

The same Republican party that made misdemeanor light beer a federal felony in 1929 had already banned all forms of birth control and related speech since 1873 (when several Democratic States could not vote). Even mentioning condoms and diaphragms was still illegal until after Herbert Hoover was defenestrated and the repeal of prohibition laws began in earnest.

The Confederacy lost the war, was occupied by federal troops, and its representatives barred from standing for office or voting. The result of this first voter suppression gambit was that the Republican candidate got 214 electoral votes to the Democrat’s 80. Nearly 3/4 of the votes that count were interpreted, with whoops of joy, as a mixed-economy mandate for the victorious coalition of Christians and Socialists in November 1868.

Before Women could Vote

Coercive Religious Conservative, T. Roosevelt Era

The parent act was passed as a postal regulation in 1872, which empowered former Union solder Anthony Comstock (author of Frauds Exposedan attack on free-speech Liberals), to decide what could be sent by mail and burn what couldn’t. “Liberals” at the time meant social libertarians bent on repealing censorship laws passed in 1865 with the Union victory. Here is the real 1872 parent law that allowed the infiltrator into the postal monopoly. The 1873 amendment made this bad law much worse.

Pre-Soviet Socialized postal system

Read the official original that transformed the postal monopoly to ban Evil Reading!

With that crashing foot in the door, the rest of the world horrified and the economy in a deep depression, the law quickly got much worse.

Here is the text of the Comstock law.
March 3, 1873, 42nd Congress, page 1873, amending the already harsh and lengthy postal monopoly law of June 1872, which allowed Comstock himself to meddle in the mail service and begin book burning as an American tradition….

CHAP. CCLVIII—An Act for the Suppression of Trade in and Circulation of, obscene Literature and Articles of Immoral use. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That whoever within the District of Columbia or any of the Territories of the United States, or other place within the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States, shall sell, or lend, or give away, or in any manner to exhibit, or shall offer to sell or to lend, or to in any manner exhibit or shall in any way publish or offer to publish in any manner, or shall have in his possession, for any such purpose or purposes, any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, writing, advertisement, circular, print, picture, drawing or other representation, figure or image on or of paper or other material, or any cast, instrument, or other article of an immoral nature, or any drug or medicine, or any article whatever for the prevention of conception, or for causing unlawful abortion, or shall advertize the same for sale, or shall write or print, or cause to be written or printed, any card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement, or notice of any kind, stating when, where, how, or of whom, or by what means, any of the articles in this section hereinbefore mentioned, can be purchased or obtained, or shall manufacture, draw, or print, or in any wise make any of such articles, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction thereof in any court of the United States, or in any Territory or place within the exclusive jurisdiction within the United States, where such misdemeanor shall have been committed; and on conviction thereof, he shall be imprisoned at hard labor in the penitentiary for not less than six months nor more than five years for each offense, or fined not less than $100 nor more than $2000, with costs of court.

SEC 2. That section one hundred and forty eight of the act to revise, consolidate, and amend the statutes relating to the Post-office Department, approved June eighth, eighteen hundred and seventy-two, be amended to read as follows:
“Sec. 148. That no obscene, lewd, or lascivious book, pamphlet, picture, paper, print, or other publication of an indecent character, or any article or thing designed or intended for the prevention of conception or procuring abortion, or any article or thing intended or adapted for any indecent or immoral use or nature, or any written or printed card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement or notice of any kind giving information, directly or indirectly, where, how, of whom, or by what means either of the things before mentioned may be obtained or made, nor any letter upon the envelope of which, or postal-card upon which indecent or scurrilous epithets may be written or printed, shall be carried in the mail, and any person who shall knowingly deposit, or cause to be deposited, for mailing or delivery, any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, or any notice or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, or any notice, or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, and any person who, in pursuance of any plan or scheme for disposing of any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things shall take, or cause to be taken, from the mail or any such letter or package, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall, for every offense, be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned at hard labor not less than one year nor more than ten years, or both, in the discretion of the judge.”

[$5000 would in 1873 buy 221 oz of gold, today worth over $295,000]

SEC. 3. That all persons are prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, except the drugs hereinbefore-mentioned when imported in bulk, and not put up for any of the purposes before mentioned; and all such prohibited articles in the course of importation shall be detained by the officer of customs, and proceedings taken against the same under section five of this act.

[asset forfeiture provision]

SEC. 4. That whoever, being an officer, agent, or employee of the government of the United States shall knowingly aid or abet any person engaged in the violation of this act, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and, on conviction thereof, shall for every offense be punished as provided in section two of this act.

SEC 5. That any judge of any district or circuit court of the United States within the proper district, before whom complaint in writing of any violation of this act shall be made, to the satisfaction of such judge, and founded on knowledge or belief, and, if upon belief, setting forth the grounds of such belief, and supported by oath or affirmation by the complainant, may issue, conformably to the Constitution, a warrant, directing him to search for, seize and take possession of any such article or thing hereinbefore mentioned, and to make due and immediate return thereof, to the end that same may be condemned and destroyed by proceedings, which shall be conducted in the same manner as other proceedings in case of municipal seizure, and with the same right of appeal or writ of error: Provided, That nothing in this section shall be construed as repealing the one hundred and forty-eighth section of the act of which this act is amendatory, or to affect any indictments heretofore found for offenses against the same, but the said indictments may be prosecuted to judgment as if this section had not been enacted. APPROVED March 3, 1873.

Today the Prohibition party is reduced to pseudoscientific sputtering that Global Warming presents an “existential threat,” and proposes to transfer part of U.S. sovereignty to “other nations in mitigating its effects.” It also wails feebly against “anchor babies,” and decries the exercise of First Amendment rights by gays as “an abomination to God,” then advances the usual shibboleths calling for men with guns to ban plant leaves, betting, wine, beer, etc… Gone is the demand for a Constitutional Amendment to undo the Libertarian Roe v. Wade decision. Infiltrators have instead focussed on molding the Libertarian Party into a subsidiary copy of the original party that as of 1908 helped Socialists inject the communist manifesto income tax into the US constitution. The Prohibition party’s softened 2016 plank on birth control was:

We consider abortion to be morally repugnant. We will implement policies to minimize the number of abortions without infringing on the doctor/patient relationship and without thrusting government into family decisions about child rearing. Abortion procedures should not be funded by government.

The copy smuggled into the 2016 Libertarian Platform, to the discomfiture of women voters, runs:

Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.

Before the Roe v. Wade decision incorporated the Libertarian plank into jurisprudence, the Democrats and Republicans, content with the Comstock laws, had nothing to say about birth control. Then for 46 years Republicans and Prohibitionists yelped for an Amendment to override the Supreme Court. Today these anti-individualist looters stoop to infiltration, exploiting our resentment of the income tax they themselves imported from Germany, instead of calling for its repeal.  The prohibitionist-inspired straddle plank is an affront to self-owership and individual rights and ought to be deleted entirely from the LP platform.
