Six million pro-choice votes in 2016

The Libertarian Party had to choose in 2016 between a recycled Republican convert to some individual rights, an Anti-choice, Pro-coathanger infiltrator and a wealthy roué noob who had evidently only heard of the LP six months earlier. The party recycled Gary Johnson–stripped of his pandering promise to try to overturn the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision enforcing individual rights for everyone–even pregnant women. Recognizing that women have individual rights (instead of trying to coerce them) multiplied this mediocre candidate’s vote total by 328% compared to 2012.

Point of inflection survives mystical pushback

LP, pill, save the planet from population disaster

Any attempt to inject anti-choice fanatics onto Libertarian Party candidate offerings can safely be interpreted as sabotage intended to cost the LP 2/3 of the votes we earned. Expect the Republican party to invest a lot of cash and effort in that. Such pandering reverses huge gains from the 1972 election in which the LP plank literally put a stop to coercing pregnant women and doctors in These States and Canada. By making the Libertarian plank on birth control the lead paragraph in its Roe v. Wade decision the Supreme Court recognized the importance of individual rights, helped avert global Malthusian disaster and made the LP a change agent that cannot be ignored.

The Democratic Party, painfully aware that the LP beat them to the repeal plank just as the Liberal party did in 1931, has tried to exploit women’s rights as transfer payments from producers to women as a way of grafting Soviet or Chinese socialism onto the issue. But suppose there are women out there who want to be free, NOT kept, bought or bribed? NARAL is betting there aren’t any, and doesn’t want women to know how Libertarian Candidate Toni Nathan smacked nine old men upside the head with the repeal plank and helped make Canada a Sanctuary Country for ladies. So, how many women want to sacrifice their rights in order to ban electric power?

Only China can have energy

Communist Party USA = Dems on energy

NARAL has become a totalitarian socialist lobby with an agenda indistinguishable from CPUSA. The Democratic party is in the coils of the same anaconda. A self-respecting independent woman has nowhere to turn but the Libertarian Party if she wants individual rights enforced. Suicidal Dems, Greens and Socialists are the ones that helped God’s Own Prohibitionists win political offices.

Christianofascism kills

See original anti-life criminals

Just as the Dems copy communist planks, the Gee-Oh-Pee copies Comstock Law and Prohibition Party planks to again strip women of rights (including physicians’ right to life). Remember the Amendment to make Pregnancy Termination Illegal? The one the Prohibition party published in its 1976 plank after Roe v. Wade? The GOP has quietly copied that into every platform up to and including the 2016 campaign. Libertarians are meanwhile promising to follow Canada’s example of no government guns pointed at pregnant women or their physicians. Are rights worth giving up to save Chinese communism? I’m voting libertarian and I’m not even female!

Warship Philadelphia burning at Tripoli

Alongside the religious fanatics who swear that German Lutherans and Catholics never built 66 death camps in which to exterminate “selfish” juden in the 1940s, a new variant of end-times Millerites has emerged–possibly in counterreaction to the Islamic reaction to the George Holy War Bush dynasty invasions of Ottoman territory beginning in 1990.

Faced with the literal text of an international treaty declaring that These United States are NOT a mystical theocracy, American National Socialists vehemently insist that the Treaty of Peace and Friendship of 1796 between Tripoli and These United States is a lie, fiction, a clumsy fabrication with no basis in reality. Richard Dawkins, the scientist and author of The Selfish Gene, is somehow dragged into accountability. Here is some text excerpted from my own 1909 collection of treaties:

Article XI. As the government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility of Musselmen; and as the said States never have entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mehometan nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries. (page 1786)
I, Joel Barlow, agent and consul general of the United States of America, for the city and kingdom of Algiers, certify and attest that the foregoing is a true copy of the Treaty, concluded between the said United States and the Bey and subjects of Tripoli of Barbary, of which the original is to be transmitted by me to the Minister of the said United States, in Lisbon. In testimony whereof, I signed these presence with my hand and a fix there to the seal of the consulate of the United States, and Algiers, this fourth day of January, 1797. Joel Barlow. (…) Know ye, that I, David Humphreys, Commissioner plenipotentiary aforesaid, do approve and conclude the said treaty, and every article and clause therein contained, reserving the same nevertheless for final ratification of the president of the United States of America, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate of the said United States. In testimony whereof, I have signed the same with my name and seal, at the city of Lisbon, this 10th of February, 1797. David Humphreys.

That was the hotly denied Treaty of 1796, but the superseding 1805 Treaty of Peace and Amity with the Mehomitan Musselmen of Tripoli soon followed. Its Article XIV is toned down compared to its Freethinking precursor. For one thing, French Napoleonic communism in its post-Terror period had spread to Italy, and looking north from Africa, the myrmidons of Mohammed probably preferred watching secular socialists to having so many crusader-types busily gunning for them. But Americans–at the time caught up in the apoplectic fits of the Second Great Awakening–doubtless looked aghast at the very idea of abandoning Jesus in the confrontation with the Barbary Coast Saracen blackamoor.

The toned-down 1805 Tripoli Treaty disclaimer of fanaticism began:

Article XIV: As the Government of the United States of America has in itself no character of enmity towards the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen; and as the said States have never entered into any voluntary war or any act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, except in the defense of their jus rights to freely navigate the high seas, it is declared by the contracting parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries. (…)

Since the offending “America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion;” has been neatly elided, National Socialists of all denominations will doubtless endorse this version as real, genuine, legitimate and not a clerical error based on mistranslation of an alien language they themselves couldn’t read if they had to. The balance of the Article consists mainly of As-samalu-alaykums reminiscent of a Cecil B. de Mille production on how Crusaders and Salazar agree that Allah is God–or perhaps the cover of a Charlie Hebdo comic.

Looter Vote Counts

Here are reported 2016 election returns for Boulder County, Colorado, from the Longmont Times-Call. The last column was simply left blank on the assumption that most voters do not know how to add or subtract.

Voters who rely on looter press vote counts are simply kept unaware of the existence of libertarian spoiler votes. How then are they to figure out that those spoiler votes pack at least six times the law-changing clout of a vote wasted on the looter kleptocracy that newspaper serves?

Countywide Clinton Trump Libertarian?
Longmont 55.3% 33.1% 11.6%
Boulder 80.8% 10.9% 8.3%
Erie 56.8% 32% 11.2%
Lafayette 68.6% 21.2% 10.2%
Louisville 78.1% 20.7% 1.2%

It is possible that Green econazis or ku-klux Tea-partiers may have gotten some of those unreported votes. But the Libertarian Party is on the ballot in all 50 states. And it is definitely true that looter parties–the ones that rob you at gunpoint–are perfectly willing to lie, cheat and steal the vote count. The Longmont Times-Call newspaper, through its staff Writer Karen Antonacci, clearly lied about the election outcome.  Looter kleptocracy parties do it to each other all the time.

Al Franken lost the Minnesota Senate race by a couple of hundred votes, then won on recount by over twice that many. The initial and final count of those decisive votes differed by 245%. What better proof that looters lie, cheat and steal to get access to the initiation of force? I personally want verifiable voting. Mark Twain voted by bawling out his choice in the public square, but I would settle for a QR code (like a secret but verifiable ATM receipt) to let me check online how MY vote was tallied. Until then, we are groping in the dark–as Lysander Spooner described during Reconstruction–under a secret band of robbers and murderers.

Looter parties set up fake Mexican standoffs so that even honest and well-informed voters are gulled away from supporting freedom. Just now Boulder politicians offered an either-or “choice.” The fake choice was not between freedom and coercion, but between a monopoly on a natural gas power plant and another monopoly on worthless, self-destructing windmills. Boulder is home to chinook winds nearly as powerful as the hurricane that just destroyed the windmills and solar panels Puerto Rican taxpayers were duped into installing.

Fourteen candidates were presented, and any libertarians among them were barred by law from identifying themselves on the ballot as against the initiation of force. Their vote counts would doubtless be misreported. Single digits you say?

We got same kind of digits in 2016 as the 9% spoiler vote commie populists in 1892 used as a springboard for getting Congress to enact a federal income tax by 1894. A single digit is the same as the Prohibition Party 1.4% vote average for the 11 campaigns leading up to the 16th Amendment. For 14 years beer, wine and sauerkraut were felony narcotics, with gunfights everywhere until the economy completely collapsed in February 1933.

Our 0.01% of the electoral vote in 1972 was arguably less than a single digit, but in 45 days it pressured the Republican Suprema Corte into enforcing the individual rights of women and their physicians in Roe v. Wade. We got no electoral vote in 2016, but libertarian votes spanned the gap between the looter parties in 11 states casting 90 electoral votes. Casting spoiler votes that increase freedom is winning. Letting the looter kleptocracy destroy our freedom is losing. This is binary, either-or, simple, true and inescapable.

The Libertarian parties in Texas need candidates to help improve the laws there. Canada’s Libertarian Party now has a woman president and is accepting donations from Canadian residents. Is you want to understand something written in Spanish by libertarians, or have a libertarian message to divulge in Portuguese, get in touch.

 

Argentina’s Pope and the LP Open Arms policy

Reason replaces superstition

See the original article

Nicholas Sarwark recently commented on how Republicans hate libertarians, and are driving the few who still cling to God’s Own Prohibitionist party “into the arms of” the Libertarian Party. A similar thing is happening with The Church that once signed treaties with Mussolini to include Catholic dogma in government school curricula.

Reason writer Stephanie Slade commented recently on a “purported” pronouncement by the South American Pope to the effect that “libertarian” ideas (i.e. the initiation of force is wrong) are un-Catholic. This is certainly borne out by recent history. Since its publication in 1999, John Cornwell’s Hitler’s Pope has been translated into Portuguese and is accessible to Brazilian readers as predominantly Christian as Germany was in 1933. Catholic parishes have diminished by 12% in Europe since 1980. As a result, organized mysticism is naturally turning away from former nationalsocialist and fascist centers. It seeks money from former colonies and junta-style dictatorships, hence the non-European papa.

Yet the message out of the Italian Vatican is pure Mussolini-era European government control over trade and production. Instead of passé racial eugenics to breed a race of blonde altruists, emphasis has shifted to ecological nationalsocialism and environmental purity. This pope’s message is the same as that of an earlier European religious conservative: “The Common Good Before the Individual Good” (Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz). The Vatican version is that “the climate is a common good”. These are the words of the spokesman for the revealed belief that men with guns must coerce physicians to force pregnant girls to choose between coerced reproduction and mutilation by coathangers—in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Exploiting faith and force to put a strain on the planet’s resources is job one of the Empire that set the Children’s Crusade afoot to throttle the accursed Saracen.  Crocodile tears over the fate of a forcibly overpopulated planet are apparently no longer welcoming little fishies in with gently smiling teeth.

And so we return to the fifth columnist tasked with infiltrating Reason, the libertarian magazine. Stephanie cannot realistically call for repeal of the Fourteenth Amendment to remove individual rights from women. Nor can she join the lynch mob agitating against the libertarian Non-Aggression Principle. The document was carefully crafted for political party purposes–for elections under the Constitution. Her meek attempts to straddle the issue by finding  a half-dozen self-proclaimed catholics not part of the papal lynch mob has backfired into pitchforks and torches pointed at her.

And this brings us back to Nicholas Sarwark. Sure enough, the Holy Father’s own self-appointed press secretary was quick to lead torches and pitchforks against the godless female apostate with this warning:

The incompatibility of Catholicism and libertarianism is a thing so obvious, if she fails to see it, it is not hard to conclude that she has drunk very deeply indeed at the well of libertarian ideology.

It is, as Pope Pius XI said, a “poisoned spring,” not a well, and the life-giving waters that Jesus gives are not for sale on the market.

For the record, Mussolini’s Pius XI had his say in 1931, when Ayn Rand was barely 27. This was two years after Pacelli was elevated to papal nuncio before becoming Hitler’s Pope. Just four years earlier Rand was filmed in The King of Kings. So Mussolini’s pope railed against repugnant libertarianism 40 years before the Libertarian Party was founded?

The important thing here is that the snottiness of coercive mystical populism is alienating a bright young intellectual into the arms of the Libertarian Party complete with non-aggression principle!  As Romish People’s Temple membership declines a percentage point per annum, the LP.org voting population is up 328% from four years ago. That vote share could increase if the Church elders try to stone Stephanie in the public square according to Christian and Moslem tradition.

If you seek to emigrate from a religious satrapy to Portugal, Canada, Australia or the U.S., you might need a certified translator to help with some documents.

 

 

 

 

National Socialist Rally in America

Yep. God’s Own Populist religious conservatives had a rally in… where else? Madison Square Garden!

https://www.theatlantic.com/video/index/542499/marshall-curry-nazi-rally-madison-square-garden-1939/

Thanks to The Atlantic magazine for providing this look back at the impending choice between the Altruist Sandwich and the Giant Altruist. The video records part of the coercive policies Herbert Hoover, William Dean Howells, Jack London and Edward Bellamy helped bring to America by glorifying the initiation of force.

Christian National Socialism

This is the Altrurianization of America in black and white! The Pledge of Allegiance you hear is the original written by Edward Bellamy’s brother Francis, before the Eisenhower Administration got hold of it. Tell me again that it can’t happen here.

Political Contributions for Freedom

Once all the Germans, were warlike and mean, but that couldn’t happen again,
We taught them a lesson in 1918, and they’ve hardly bothered us since then…

My father kept the household well-supplied with Songs by Tom Lehrer, nurturing in his offspring an appreciation of mathematics, the arts, and the importance of keeping an eye on the brainwashees of totalitarian ideologies. This training in youth paid off handsomely when routine scrutiny of today’s econazi Germany turned up a philanthropist with a cause–Nina Rosenwald. Her foundation is reportedly a major contributor to “political parties,” but her advocacy focuses on the so-called “rights” of “religious minorities.”

Nina’s website is dedicated entirely to bashing Mohammedanism, as if all other forms of mysticism were neither coercive nor deadly. Religious minorities and majorities alike traditionally regard non-mystical individuals (and each other) as mere rightless infidels. Yet the website belongs to someone whose relatives were hunted down and murdered by Germany’s 98% Catholic and Protestant voters and government–a government popularly elected and overwhelmingly re-elected beginning in 1928. Her Foundational prescriptions extoll “individual rights” without getting too specific about the nature of those individual rights. Her lessons on the difference between freedom from coercion and the bloodbaths brought about by the initiation of harmful, coercive and deadly force rely on examples without explicit generalization by induction. Her funding goes to German political parties, all of which embrace the exact same mystical altruism that prompted genocide as the eugenic solution for making the world safe for altruist collectivism.

Science and reason are receptive to observable and measurable reality. Superstition and mysticism absolutely reject all reason, logic and verification that conflicts with blind determination to interpret mythological fiction as Revealed Truth. One current example is the mountain of well-documented evidence showing that German National Socialism is a Christian movement. Its 25-point Program explicitly endorsed religious Christianity as faith. Its motto, “The Common Good Before the Individual Good” (Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz) extolls altruist collectivism as the ethical basis for distinguishing right from wrong. Those words and God Is With Us (Gott Mitt Uns) were engraved on their coins. Its legislative “solutions” advance the initiation of naked force as the preferred method of correcting traits altruist ethicists imagine breed political incorrectness.  The outcome of all this was demonstrated in evidence presented at war crimes trials in Nuremberg and elsewhere after May 5, 1945. The True Believers’ reaction? Disbelief!

Socialist and altruist websites flatly assert that Hitler was a religious conservative, which he was. “Reds” depict that famous politician as the “right-wing” Christian he himself claimed to be. Catholic and Protestant websites, however, deny as fabrication all evidence that any German and Austrian nationalsocialists were ever Christians™ and produce tortuous argumentation to the contrary. Both of these factions of communo-fascist totalitarianism evade discussion of ethics (what distinguishes good from evil) but unanimously support altruism.

Mystical conservatives “just know” that Hitler’s followers “weren’t really” altruists. Looters less impressed by Divine Revelation are equally sure that Hitler’s followers “aren’t really” altruists, but are Christian. (NSDAP is both).  Their own lists of which communist dictators were “really” altruists vary, but ALL are in agreement that National Socialists are selfish “right wing” fascists. Just as correctly, National Socialists (and other Christian Conservatives) regard socialists of other parties as extremists. Each accuses the other of lying hypocrisy, never admitting that their ideal is the same: altruist collectivism achieved by the initiation of deadly force.

The Republican, Democratic and Green platforms are perfect examples of activated altruism indistinguishable in kind from other totalitarian faiths. In fact, Ayn Rand fired Random House for refusing to publish her essay quoting the Nazi platform alongside excerpts from Kennedy speeches.  Nina Rosenwald could avoid the errors* Ayn Rand committed in her dotage (when both Ayn and Hillary Clinton were Goldwater Republicans). Nina’s support for selected candidates running on Libertarian Party platforms in any of two dozen countries would to more to dismantle National Socialism and Islam than any volume of well-translated tu quoque.

Mysticism and Fascism

Altruistic nationalsocialism

Read the original 1929 Chicago Tribune article

Remember the Lateran Agreements? The Romish Church doesn’t, but newspapers record how King, Dictator and Pope entered into another Byzantine Tordesillas pact–this one to divvy up power over the population of Italy. By Mussolini’s decree, Italian schools were required to include Catholic indoctrination of children too young to resist such conditioning.

In laissez-faire France, so many could afford cars that a movement was afoot to ban collective transportation. A decade later, National Socialist tanks rolled into Catholic (and Protestant) France and replaced Liberté, Fraternité, Egalité with Travail, Patrie, Famille. Jewish families were packed off to 40,000 Nazi camps, but every Catholic or Protestant in Germany acted surprised to learn in May of 1945 that even a single such death camp had ever existed.

Here is the current pope of Rome’s endorsement of Ecological National Socialism:

“The external deserts in the world are growing, because the internal deserts have become so vast.” For this reason, the ecological crisis is also a summons to profound interior conversion. It must be said that some committed and prayerful Christians, with the excuse of realism and pragmatism, tend to ridicule expressions of concern for the environment. Others are passive; they choose not to change their habits and thus become inconsistent. So what they all need is an “ecological conversion,” whereby the effects of their encounter with Jesus Christ become evident in their relationship with the world around them. Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience. (Laudato Si’, 217)

Below is a sample of current papist equivocations berating libertarian non-aggression. The speech, worthy of any South-American integralista surrounds the concept of “freedom” with a Vatican-worthy wall of conditionals, adjectival qualifiers and vagueness to disguise its collectivist calls to coercion. Observe how this Argentine Holy Father rearranges the National Socialist plea to put “The Common Good before the Individual Good” (Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz in the 1920 original)

Calling for integral development means engaging in widening the space of dignity and freedom of people: freedom, however, not only in the negative sense of the absence of impediments, nor only in a positive sense as a choice. It is necessary to add freedom “for”, that is, the freedom to pursue its vocation of both personal and social good. The key idea is that freedom goes hand in hand with the responsibility of protecting the common good and promoting the dignity, liberty and well-being of others, reaching the poor, the excluded and future generations.

Plenary Session of the Pontifical Academy of the Social Sciences on the theme Towards a Participatory Society: New Roads to Social and Cultural Integration (Casina Pio IV, 28 April – 2 May 2017). Freedom in a political context is freedom from government coercion. But in the infallible speech, coercion by harmful or deadly force replaced by the more euphemistic equivocation “impediments,” suggestive not of government action, but ordinary features of terrain.  The dictionary in Mac OS defines impediment: “a hindrance or obstruction in doing something.” The example: “a serious impediment to scientific progress.” In a very real sense, faith and initiation of force are the two primary impediments to scientific progress.

The Pope’s mystical claim that temperatures are rising and coercion must be resorted to as an emergency measure is another example. Thermometer records not tampered with clearly show that temperatures have been decreasing since the Lateran Treaty was signed, as in these measurements for Texas.

Disclosure: this interpreter was as a child enrolled in two mystical schools in a country politically subservient to Rome. The conditioning evidently didn’t “take,” and in college I took physics and math classes. Indoctrination attempts nevertheless provided first-hand experience with the conditioning whereby mystical altruism offers the initiation of force as the only acceptable solution to imaginary political or social conundrums.

I am looking for other libertarian translators. If you know of any, please let me know.
