Republican crashes bring communism

Stocks crash, sugar price up 600%

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

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

Disloyalty a crime since 1873 Comstock laws

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

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

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

Crashes increase communist party membership

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

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

Between asset-forfeiture crashes

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

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

The power behind Capone in Cicero

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

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

Pro-choice Gary Johnson got 4.5 million votes

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

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

Before the 1929 Crash

Kleptocracy black market is mystical collectivist side effect

Does this look like financial news? Well it is!(link)

 

The Evening Day, New London, Connecticut January 1, 1926, page 4, on which an almost new Ford coupe sells for $175, depicts the breakdown of the Gentlemen’s Agreement between prohibition enforcers and a coalition of bootleggers, bankers, sugar & yeast companies and pharmaceutical enterprises. Many of the larger drug companies were at least partly German, at a time when Germany was still a holdout on passing the equivalent of a Volstead Act designed to ban enjoyable drugs. Here is how German stock and money markets behaved during five years shortly after a reparations crisis had reduced the value of the Papier Mark to its weight in cellulose. What was going on here and in Germany?  Continue reading

Stopping the motor of Prohibition

Stock Market a smoking ruin! (link)

Who is Mabel Willebrandt? She was the Joan Galt of Prohibition who gave the looters exactly what they asked for in the year Ayn Rand was married to a U.S. citizen. Willebrandt had in August and September published “The Inside of Prohibition” as a column syndicated in 21 newspapers across the USA. In it she explained how the income tax was used to arrest drug and alcohol purveyors juries would not convict for prohibition violations. She also ripped the lid off of the Jones 5 and 10 Law (5 yrs on a chain gang and a fine worth 30 pounds of gold for having liquor) passed two days before Hoover swore to fine and imprison the entire U.S. population if that’s what it took to enforce it.

So on our way to page 12 to see if Willebrandt’s column on drug and beer agents with tommy guns will be mentioned or ignored, we see this gem:

Chain Gang - 30 pounds of gold fine for beer

Jones 5 and 10 Increased Penalties Law, 02 March 1929

This Senator Wesley Livsey Jones was the Pacific Northwest’s White Terror. His coastwise shipping law was a prohibition law in disguise, as it restricted who could operate vessels near U.S. coasts. But the Post-Crash article says nothing about Wesley Livsey Jones’ dry fanaticism. THAT went without saying. Now we come to the narc and taxMAN Hoover chose to replace America’s feminist prosecutor–now resigned from her dead-end job in disappointment.

Bring on the Depression!

Reasons to expect a Great Depression (link)

The article reports that…

Friends of the Administration describe Mr Youngquist as a firm believer in the dry cause. They also say his record as enforcement officer of Minnesota is excellent.
Besides enforcement of the Volstead Act, Mr Youngquist will have charge of enforcement of the internal revenue laws and the narcotic laws. He would have a much enlarged responsibility if and when the prohibition enforcement unit is transferred from the Treasury to the Justice Department.
Mr Youngquist was selected on recommendation of Attorney-General Mitchell and was among half a dozen men whom the President considered for the place. One of these is also believed to have been Hugh M Alcorn, State’s Attorney of Connecticut, but he was eliminated because of a disagreement among Republican leaders of Connecticut over his appointment.
Friend of Volstead
G.A. Youngquist… named to succeed Mrs Mabel Walker Willebrandt as Assistant Atorney General in charge of prohibition inforcement, is a close friend of Andrew Volstead and S.B. Kvale, in charge of prohbition in the northwest district.
Youngquist is 44 years old.

So the nation’s top prosecutor resigned, wrote a tell-all that explained how the Administration would topple the economy to exorcise the Demon Beer. Investors saw clearly that the economy would indeed be crushed and money fled banks and brokerages. The elevation of the most ruthless and fanatical Inquisitors, beginning with Younguist, fair-haired boy of the author of the Volstead prohibition law of The Night of January Sixteenth, began.

This was America’s Gestapo directing hordes of agents with holy crosses and service pistols to break in doors, tap phones, audit tax returns, arrest physicians and indict the worlds largest yeast, glucose, sugar and chocolate corporations on felony conspiracy charges. This is what PROMPTED the flight of money BEFORE the looting, torture, murder and imprisonment bulked up beginning in November of 1929.

Lest We Forget

Too late, baby

86% 2 yrs after Bush faith-based asset forfeiture wrecked the economy!

Every time Sharia Law Republicans wreck the economy in their endless wars on Beer, The Demon Rum, or Enjoyable Plant Leaves, there’s a recession, unemployment, and memory loss. On March 4, 1933 not a single Republican outside of the Chicago Tribune could remember the Jones 5&10 law, or Mabel Willebrandt’s use of the communist income tax to jail Beer Barons and confiscate property, plant & equipment along with bank and brokerage accounts. The commercial banks financing docks, cargo ships, radio station, warehouses and logistics at Atlantic Highlands were lost down a memory hole along with how Bert Hoover’s Moratorium on Brains helped National Socialism gain power in Germany.

The Prohibition party soldiered on, urging shoot-first prohibitionism as what Christ would be doing. Their Creation Pseudoscientists insisted that Jesus had turned raisins, not water, into wine, as GOP ward heelers tried their best to forget THEM as Alf Landon, Wendell Willkie, Thomas Dewey, then Dewey again struggled to revive interest in chain gangs, bank account confiscation and the gunning down of motorists by dry killers in the interest of Christian purity.

Finally the Ike/Nixon ticket was elected and now you now know who Ike was talking about when he said “military-industrial complex.” Silent Majority brownshirts, Moral Majority blackshirts, Operation Intercept, market crashes, and oil crises. Non-poisonous LSD was declared dangerous and Agent Orange safe by government drug bureaucracies.

A couple of dead Kennedys later Nixon pulled the brass ring and won again after a bullet-riddled George Wallace threw in the towel and quit blocking kids from entering schools. History shows us that Republicans who win a second term promptly push the Prohibition Party planks calling for police to shoot people over plant leaves, then use those same guns to threaten and intimidate physicians with female clients.

History also shows us that just as Bryanist and Prohibitionist spoiler votes brought the income tax and Prohibition amendments, Libertarian spoiler votes are undoing past experiments with National Socialism. Women knelt in front of saloons to urge prohibition. Realizing their error, VOTING women in 1932 cast ballots for the Liberal Party repeal plank and ended most of the initiation of force accelerating the Depression.  Now is a good time to take a new pledge:

I certify that I oppose the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals.

The Five and Ten Law, March, 1929

Light beer (and even sauerkraut) became a major federal felony 24 hours before Herbert Hoover, a lifelong teetotaler, placed his hand upon a religious tome and became President. 

Chapter 42

The Five and Ten

 Senator Wesley Livsey Jones of Washington—possibly the most fanatical prohibitionist in the upper Chamber—again pressed for his year-old “increased penalties” plan on February 19.[1] “Be it enacted,” he proposed in his bill, “That wherever a penalty or penalties are prescribed in criminal prosecution by the National Prohibition Act, as amended and supplemented, for the illegal manufacture, sale, transportation, importation or exportation of intoxicating liquor, as defined by Section 1, Title II of the National Prohibition Act, the penalty imposed for each such offense shall be a fine not to exceed $10,000 or imprisonment not to exceed five years, or both.”[2] The national media dubbed it the Five & Ten, but the Chicago Tribune preferred to call it the Jones Law.

The gauntlet was thrown. Drys, championed by Senator William A. Borah of Idaho, hailed it as essential to maintaining a constitutional form of government. Wets, led by Senator James A. Reed of Missouri, classed it as improper, unjust and cruel, and on raged the debate. The Tribune compared it to the Fugitive Slave Law, but the Senate passed it anyway, albeit with the added proviso that “it is the intent of Congress that the court, in imposing sentence hereunder, should discriminate between casual or slight violations and habitual sales of intoxicating liquor, or attempts to commercialize violations of the law.”[3]

The House passed it as it stood, and President Calvin Coolidge signed it into law just twenty-four hours before an optimistic Herbert Hoover was to blithely take an oath to enforce it. But Hoover wouldn’t let it go at that. To this lynch mob atmosphere of hysteria he added: “Of the undoubted abuses which have grown up under the 18th amendment, part are due to (…) the failure of some States to accept their share of the responsibility for concurrent enforcement and to the failure of many State and local officials to accept the obligation under their oath of office zealously to enforce the laws. With the failures from these many causes has come a dangerous expansion in the criminal elements who have found enlarged opportunities for dealing in illegal liquor. (…) I have been selected by you to execute and enforce the laws of the country. (…) To those of criminal mind there can be no appeal but vigorous enforcement of the law. Fortunately they are but a small percentage of our people. Their activities must be stopped.”[4]

A delegation from the Women’s Christian Temperance Union was photographed on the White House lawn. Herbert Hoover had lunch with Assistant Attorney General Mabel Walker Willebrandt, then met with Senator Morris Sheppard of corn-producing Texas, author of the 18th Amendment. Time called Hoover the “Dry Hope,” and those first few days in office seemed to confirm exactly that. Bootleggers took no comfort whatsoever, and some of them began to wonder whether they’d overstayed the market.
