Repeal Democrats and Republicans

Laurence Vance writes about ObamaCare taxes and other taxes and bills to repeal taxes but replace them with other taxes. Republicans and conservatives are just as much in favor of tax-thefts as liberals and Democrats. (Hence, “Rethuglicans,” in my view.)

Veronique de Rugy describes “Medicare for All” as a plot to pillage us. ($35 trillion? They’re nuts!)

And Robert Wenzel explains Elizabeth Warren’s top economic advisors’ ignorance and hatred of wealth and free markets.

Democrats and Republicans (i.e. the “Government Party”) vs. the Libertarian Party

The Democrats had another debate this week. Here is a summary:

  • We want to steal more of your money.
  • We want to impose more regulations, restrictions, prohibitions, confiscations, mandates, requirements and intrusions into your lives, enforced at government gunpoint.

And that’s it. In other words, they are no different from the Republicans. Both the Rethugs and Demtards are just two parts of the one Government Party, in Warshington and all the smaller territories within good ol’ USA.

It’s the same thing election after election, year after year, with the Establishment parties, the one Government Party. It will never get better, only worse.

I know, a lot of conservatives and libertarians are fooled by the con man in the White House. His individual tax cuts expire in just a few years and he did that just to give you enough crumbs so you will vote for him next year. And Trump’s trade idiocy is causing uncertainty. The problem at the border, the drug addiction crisis and other societal problems have their roots in government interventionism, which Trump loves. He’s a central planning-loving kind of guy.

And the Republicans and Democrats are entrenched and enmeshed with the government. They make laws that protect their power and restrict other parties from competing and getting their foot in the door. The “news” media are all with that. So this is really a racket, and I mean a genuinely well-organized “legal” protection racket, a literally criminal organization, which is why the leaders of both Establishment parties need to be forced, maybe by a court and a decent judge if there are any in good ol’ USA, to change the laws to remove any and all restrictions on third parties’ rights to get names and candidates on ballots. If they don’t make such changes then those in control should be charged with racketeering, just like the organized crimesters they are.

And for all those reasons we need to take another look at the Libertarian Party. (I can’t believe I’m saying that.) And I don’t mean the Gary Johnson-Bill Weld Libertarian Party, but the Ron Paul-Harry Browne Libertarian Party. The “party of principle.”

And just recently I wrote a post referring to Jacob Hornberger who is contemplating a run for President as a Libertarian Party candidate. I don’t know if he necessarily agrees with my assertions about the Democrat-Republican criminal racket, but he is someone who does promote freedom, which is what the U.S. used to be all about.

In his speeches at recent state LP conventions, Hornberger included this statement:

We are not Republicans, and we are not Democrats. We are also not Republican-lites, and we are not Democrat-lites. We are not “socially liberal and economically conservative.” We are libertarians, and we need to fight as libertarians!

We live in a dysfunctional society, one in which there are soaring suicide rates, especially among young people, massive alcoholism and drug addiction, and mass killings for unexplainable reasons.

That shouldn’t surprise anyone, given the dysfunctional welfare-warfare state way of life that Republicans and Democrats have foisted upon our land. Republicans and Democrats both need to be taken to account for what they have done to our country with their system of mandated socialist charity, massive taxation, immoral and racially bigoted drug war, forever foreign wars, undeclared wars, wars of aggression and endless occupations, war on terrorism, torture, assassination, secret mass surveillance, national-security statism, interventionism, imperialism, monetary debasement, infringements on civil liberties, intrusions on privacy, trade wars, sanctions, embargoes, alliances with dictatorial regimes, foreign aid (i.e., bribery), coups, war on immigrants, managed and regulated economy, and out-of-control federal spending and debt, all which have brought death, suffering, economic and financial harm, and destruction of liberty to our land as well as to people in other parts of the world.

If we Libertarians continue adhering to principle, we have the potential of leading America out of the statist morass into which Republicans and Democrats have plunged our nation. By adhering to principle, we have the chance to lead our nation, and indirectly the world, to the highest reaches of freedom, peace, prosperity, harmony, and morality that mankind has ever seen.

In fact, Jacob Hornberger’s latest columns on non-interventionism are very good, too. In this column, he succinctly explains why interventionists won’t help the Kurds, and today he explains empire and interventionism vs. republic and non-interventionism.

Ignorant and Brainwashed People with Power: They Suck

Ignorant and brainwashed people with power really suck. First we have a 12-year-old girl in a Kansas school arrested and taken away in handcuffs, and now threatened with a year in jail for gesturing with her hand like a gun.

Because of government school “zero tolerance” policies, education bureaucrats and “resource officers” are a major threat to innocent children and compromising the students’ futures as well.

According to court records as reported by the New York Post, the girl “unlawfully and feloniously communicated a threat to commit violence, with the intent to place another, in fear, or with the intent to cause the evacuation, lock down or disruption in regular, ongoing activities…”

No, she didn’t do that. She was just kidding around. But government employees tend to not have a grasp on reality. And government school employees generally have lower IQs and so they think that 2+2=5 and in is out and up is down, etc., as we have seen through the years.

These kinds of situations are happening all the time now in the schools, as the teachers and administration bureaucrats are terrorizing and traumatizing little kids and having them arrested and harassed by government police, for no good reason. John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute is constantly providing one example after another in his articles.

What needs to be done is parents have to turn the tables on these government criminals, by having them charged with threatening minors, child abuse and terrorism, child endangerment, for starters.

And it isn’t just the schools. In Fort Forth, Texas, a police officer is charged with murder for shooting a lady in her home while he was outside her bedroom window, without having identified himself or waiting for a response from her after he shouted at her for no good reason. You’ve probably heard about this one.

But what actually caused this incident? A “concerned” neighbor called police because he saw the lady’s front and side doors left open “for several hours,” according to the New York Times. Apparently there were lights on in the home.

Now, if the neighbor was “concerned,” why couldn’t he just go over to the open door and maybe say, “Yoohoo, hello in there, everything all right?” But nooooo, even though there was no indication that the home was broken into, or that there was any criminal activity going on in there, the “concerned” neighbor goes and call the police!

So, I don’t know if the neighbor is just dumb and has no common sense or what. But this is another behavior we have been seeing over the years now, in which neighbors call the police on some innocent people, on moms inside the house because their little one is outside playing in the yard “unsupervised,” or calling the police on 5- or 10-year-old kids who are walking alone along a street on the way to a friend’s house.

I think the answer to those problems is: Don’t call the police!!

The problem of no common sense and people compromising the lives and liberty of innocents is going on all over the U.S., and in Europe as well.

In France, the fascist President Emmanuel Macron is imposing facial recognition technology for ID to use various services including bank accounts, even though a hacker took only an hour to “break into a ‘secure’ government messaging app” during the 6-month experimental phase, according to the U.K. Telegraph.

In France, no choice and no consent are required. Why does the government have anything to do with people’s private bank accounts? It’s the same thing here, by the way.

This fascism and government surveillance/tracking/intrusion/violation of lives and privacy are more reasons why decentralization is the solution to most of society’s ills, including Internet insecurity. Why do people want the government to either run or be in control over THAT? Everything the government operates or controls turns to crap. That’s true in the U.S. as well. And the more centralized the regime, the worse it is, like in Warshington, D.C.

So, France sucks. And so does the U.K., in fact. Talk about being against democracy! They had a Brexit vote over three years ago, in which the majority 52% voted to leave the EU while 48% voted to remain. They had a democratic vote, but they do not respect it.

If England really does become truly independent, then I hope the other European countries can follow. In the U.S. we need at least one state to leave the “union,” which has been a coerced and involuntary association from the very beginning, especially since the end of the mid-19th Century war by the U.S. government against the seceding states. We have an extremely dangerous and tyrannical regime in Warshington, and, as the Declaration of Independence states, it is the “Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…”

We can’t rely on the criminal parasites and gangsters of the U.S. CONgress to let go of their little power-wielding fiefdoms and their unearned extravagances, so it’s really up to the people of the states to separate and become independent. You see, the centralized U.S. government having so much power and control over 300,000,000+ innocent lives removes the ability of the people to “vote with their feet,” because there’s nowhere else to go, really.

If the people of the territory can decentralize, then they can vote with their feet. People are already doing that. For example, many of the people of New York were not able to afford all the tax-thefts imposed on them by the regime in Albany, so they left NY for other states such as Florida.

The people in Hong Kong get it. They want their independence, and their freedom. They want to separate from the authoritarian tyrants in China, but the regime in Beijing doesn’t want to leave them alone. Alas, various U.S. sports figures are openly siding with China. What’s up with that? And they call those siding with the Hong Kong protesters as “misinformed.” Humph!

Incidentally, I listen to Bloomberg Radio and in the morning they have “Daybreak Europe,” in which the news anchors are based in London and most of them are British. WHY do they insist on pronouncing “China” as “Chiner”? Is there a reason? Didn’t they go to school? Didn’t they learn how to pronounce “China”?

Anyway, in Spain, their Supreme Bureaucrats have found separatists guilty of sedition and sentenced them to 13 years in prison. So, along with Chiner, the Spanish rulers don’t get it either.

People have a right to their freedom and independence, i.e. they have a right to not be enslaved by ruling bureaucrats.

I wish the U.S. bureaucrats in Warshington would get that. (I wish that all the millions of American sheeple would get it, as well.)

And just look at how entrenched U.S. bureaucrats hate democracy so much that when they lose a presidential election they use the “national security” apparatus to go after their winning opponent, spying on his campaign and then infiltrating the White House for more spying, and making stuff up and using an entire “special counsel” to investigate nothing for 2 years.

And when that doesn’t work the entrenched apparatchiks take one presidential phone call and use it to make more stuff up, calling for impeachment based on one phone call even though their target and his office released the transcript, and then the commissar leading the charge, Adam Shiffty, deliberately lies and makes up a conversation as he’s reading it in an official Congressional hearing and making people think it was the actual phone call in question!

So the obedient robots of the moonstream media are just following along as they have been for 3 years, repeating the whole false story word for word, because they don’t know any other facts, only what bureaucrats tell them. The government’s groupies in the media don’t do any actual investigative research, they just act as government stenographers.

So, while the Adam Shifftys and the “news” media make stuff up, when Joe Biden’s actual threats and pressure of Ukrainian government officials are proven by video of Biden himself bragging to a crowd that he did that, the media ignore that!

Speaking of brainwashed people with power, why do ignorant fascists have to ban things, like plastic straws? How is banning plastic straws going to “save the environment” (or “Save the Whales,” the polar bears, or whatever)? There are plenty of terrible garbage items besides plastics in the oceans, and on land as well.

The problem is not that people are using plastic straws. The problem is that people are littering! There are already laws on the books against littering! Why don’t these hysterical environmentalist crusaders go after the litterbugs? (Oh, they ARE litterbugs! Or many of them, I’ll bet.) Perhaps Project Veritas can follow the loudest pro-straw-banning environmentalists around and see if they are the litterbugs.

Some people just like to have a lot of power and order others around and be control freaks. And Donald Trump is one of them, by the way.

A Possible Libertarian Party Candidate for President

Occasionally I have been looking at Jacob Hornberger’s Jacob for Liberty website to see if there are any updates. He is contemplating a run for President on the Libertarian Party ticket. And I see that he has visited several state LP conventions this year, in Georgia, Alabama, Iowa, California, Colorado, Florida, North Carolina and Massachusetts.

What? Massachusetts? Where the fascist Gov. Charlie Half-Baker rules? There’s a “Libertarian” Party in Massachusetts? I can’t believe it.

Anyway, the Libertarian Party national convention is next May, I believe.

And there is a terrific and informative interview of Jacob Hornberger by Ernest Hancock of Freedom’s Phoenix. It was a lively hour-long conversation. Hornberger recalled his previous presidential run, in the year 2000 in which he had exposed some possible ethical violations with the Harry Browne campaign. And apparently he doesn’t like the schmoozing aspects of trying to get the various factions of the Party together, such as the conservatives, the “leftist” libertarians, the anarchists and the minarchists, etc. But he does want to convince people to join him in attempting to bring the country back to its freedom roots, in which there were no income tax and no IRS, no Federal Reserve, no drug war, no welfare state, no warfare state, no “national security” state, etc. For over 100 years the U.S. was without those awful totalitarian things and there was much more freedom and the fastest rise in the standard of living in history.

On Ernest Hancock’s Freedom’s Phoenix website bio, by the way, there is this quote that I like:

“There are two types of people in the world,… Those who wish to be left alone and those who just won’t leave them alone. What type are you?”

Exactly.

Now, with the imposition of the income tax over 100 years ago, we have seen how that has enabled the crooks and fraudsters to use the U.S. government as their own personal apparatus of enrichment at the expense of the workers and producers of America. And the Federal Reserve has enabled the banksters to do the same.

Without the income tax and Federal Reserve we probably could not have had all the entries of U.S. government/military into foreign wars that were instigated by false flags or otherwise deception. Trillions of dollars could not have been wasted and squandered on social programs, research grants, forced welfare redistribution, a “war on drugs” and a war on immigration and the current police state we have now.

With the income tax-theft as the biggest enabler of criminality ever in world history, getting rid of it would be the best thing not only for our freedom but our prosperity.

But the Democrats and Republicans don’t want to do that. They are two sides of the same statist/totalitarian coin.

Even the Libertarian Party in recent years has been pathologically wishy-washy on not just the income tax but all the other totalitarian fascist and socialist schemes that have been imposed on Americans for 100 years. Gary Johnson and Bill Weld have been the worst of the worst (so far), in my view.

The truth is, Libertarianism is based on the non-aggression principle, self-ownership, private property, freedom of contract and voluntary association. Nothing about “social justice,” climate change, gay rights, whether people go to church or not, preventing drug addiction, saving the Middle East from its own repression, nope, none of that.

Libertarianism is about freedom. Just note the Freedom’s Phoenix quote above.

No, I Won’t Turn Off My Ad Blocker! Doh!

Well, yet another website that I read regularly is now telling me to turn off my ad blocker, or else I can’t read the articles, or I have to pay them something. As I have said several times now, I know some people’s websites are “ad-driven,” but even if I saw their ads I would never click any of them on. I never click on ads, and I never make any purchases of anything that way.

I don’t know why website owners are afraid of me not seeing their stupid and sometimes grotesque ads. Do they think that my own ad blocker will prevent other people from seeing their ads? No, my own browser having an ad blocker will have no effect on other people viewing the ads on those websites. My own ad blocker only affects my own browser and no one else’s! So, there is no reason for you to have to make me see those disgusting ads featuring flabby slobs trying to lose weight or the couples having sex, or people with skin rashes or their eyes falling out of their sockets.

Additionally, as I wrote in a previous blog, on one website I read, some of its advertisers were loading their ads and were making the page take too long to load. I could see in the lower left what they were, and after doing some research, I saw that some of those ad websites were flagged for their spyware.

One thing is for sure. If a website is telling me to turn off my ad blocker or “whitelist” them, which I won’t do, I just won’t see that website anymore. And that means I will not link to anything on that website. Oh, well.
