Donald Trump’s Nominee for Attorney General, William Barr

After all his criticisms of the “deep state,” the Mueller Russia-collusions “witch hunt” and rhetorically raking the Establishment over the coals, Donald Trump has nominated former Bush41 AG and CIA flunky the authoritarian statist William Barr to be the next attorney general. The reason Trump picked Barr is because Trump is impressed with someone with the credentials Barr has. (Hmm, Robert Mueller has good credentials, too. And Dick Cheney. And … James Comey, and…Hillary….Clinton…)

According to Wikipedia, Barr was with the CIA for four years. That in and of itself should disqualify him! During the George H.W. Bush administration, as an assistant AG Barr advised that the U.S. feds could invade another country to apprehend a suspect for extradition, such as invading Panama to grab Manuel Noriega, whose drug trafficking was excused by U.S. feds in exchange for his cooperation for the CIA in the CIA’s Latin America coups and regime change ops.

Really disgusting stuff, in other words. Further, as attorney general under Bush Sr., Barr advised that Bush pardon former Defense (sic) Secretary Caspar Weinberger, because a possible Weinberger trial involving the Iran-Contra scandal might have implicated Bush himself. (Bush has done worse, believe me.)

Barr is also anti-immigration, just like Donald Trump and former AG Jeff Sessions. If you’re going to be anti-immigration like these socialist clowns, should you really be in America? (How about these schmucks instead go to other countries that don’t have a Declaration of Independence or a Bill of Rights? Hmmm?)

Unsurprisingly, Barr is a drug fascist. Barr’s daughter Mary Daly is a DOJ official, in charge of drug policy, apparently. She and her father Bill Barr are supporters of the war on drugs. For them it is a criminal matter. People buying, selling, possessing or using certain drugs prohibited by the gubmint are criminals, according to these fascists. (But don’t touch the drug warriors’ precious booze, right? Right.)

According to WaPo, Barr sent a letter to U.S. Senators telling them not to reform the sentencing system, writing, “Our system of justice is not broken. Mandatory minimums and proactive law enforcement measures have caused a dramatic reduction in crime over the past 25 years, an achievement we cannot afford to give back.”

Clueless.

Proactive law enforcement measures”? So pre-crime? Thus, not only does Barr believe that the government has the authority to prohibit this or that by law, like drugs, but he doesn’t believe in presumption of innocence and due process.

Presumption of innocence is: leave people alone who are peaceful and not suspected of harming others or violating the persons or property of others, and so on. But, Barr doesn’t get that.

And then I saw this. Law professor Jonathan Turley wrote that Barr is “one of the most brilliant lawyers I have known” and that Barr is the “perfect choice” for attorney general. More cluelessness, this. I think a lot of U.S. senators will obediently follow this line of thinking, and they will probably unanimously vote to confirm Barr as attorney general. I’m sure even Rand Paul will vote for him. No surprise there.

If confirmed, given his “law-and-order” authoritarianism the statist William Barr will probably rubber-stamp the police state: the drug war, asset forfeiture, all the unconstitutional post-9/11 policies including NDAA and indefinite detention, warrantless searches, warrantless wiretapping and warrantless spying, and more.

Even though Barr has expressed support for investigating Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, I still don’t believe that Barr will come to the side of transparency when it comes to the Mueller fishing expedition. I don’t think he will side with those in and out of Congress who have presented evidence against certain FBI and DOJ employees showing that they illicitly cleared Hillary Clinton from wrongdoing and these same FBI and DOJ flunkies then went on to conspire to frame Donald Trump in made-up Russia collusions involving the apparatchiks’ FISA abuses to spy on the Trump campaign (apparatchiks including, allegedly, Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Sally Yates).

In the end, I believe, AG Barr will come to the defense of the national security state and all its criminality and corruption in regards to “Russia-gate” and the Mueller fiasco. I’ll be surprised if the outcome is otherwise, and if Barr actually encourages Trump to order the FISA warrants or FISA warrant applications declassified, and lets the truth be known to the general public, and if Barr actually demands that Comey et al. (including John Brennan as well) be indicted. And will AG Barr open a new investigation of the Clintons? I rather doubt it. Call me cynical.

More News and Commentary

Paul Craig Roberts comments on Meghan Murphy’s banishment from Twitter for writing that “Men are not women.” And, “How are transwomen not men? What is the difference between men and transwomen?” Twitter called that “hateful conduct.” And this is what feminists get when they engage in extreme identity politics. So now, we are not allowed to say that someone who is a male is a male even though he insists he is a female even though he actually is a male. We’re just not allowed to say that. i.e. saying the actual, scientifically proven truth is “bad” now.

James Bovard says that George H.W. Bush was worse than Trump as far as trade protectionism was concerned, as well as obstructing a special counsel and escalating the fascist drug war.

Bush and Trump should have listened to Frank Chodorov when it comes to free will and the marketplace.

The Government Interventionists’ Bad Policies Are to Blame

Jacob Hornberger explains what many people don’t seem to be able to get as far as the effects of the drug war are concerned. The crimes, violence, drug cartels, drug lords like Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman now on trial in New York, are results of the drug war itself, not the drugs. Government interventionism and central planning in drug “control,” or attempted control. More problems result from the interventionists’ drug war, and their solutions are more interventionism, which causes more problems. And as Hornberger points out, it’s the same thing regarding immigration.

Government Apparatchiks Should Be Shamed into Quitting Their Evil Government “Work”

As a follow-up to my rant yesterday on the protesters who have been harassing government officials at restaurants, I am going to reiterate my support. And reiterate my condemnation of criminal thugs terrorizing Tucker Carlson’s family at his home, as well. Carlson is not a government official.

However, many of the protesters’ motivations are not in favor of dismantling the powers of the government that sics government enforcers onto innocent people, unfortunately. Many of the “protesters” and harassers are in favor of their own “liberal police state,” in which they want to sic the enforcers onto innocent people who disobey the left’s fascist mandates, intrusive regulations, and so forth. Liberals and progressives are as much police statists as the conservatives, warmongers and drug warriors.

But as I wrote yesterday, of course the citizens should bother, annoy, harass, make fun of, taunt, humiliate, and shame those government bureaucrats at public places, such as Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell. Those apparatchiks have been supporting and voting for terrible, totalitarian anti-liberty legislation such as NDAA that empowers government agents to arrest and detain indefinitely citizens without charges or suspicion, voting for the various laws involving the drug war in which innocent people’s homes are criminally broken into by enforcers who terrorize and ransack the homes of innocent people who supposedly disobeyed government prohibitions of having a plant, or other Soviet-like diktats. These bureaucrats should be harassed, taunted, and shamed into deciding to repeal all that totalitarian crap!

And yesterday I wrote that most of these bureaucrats are “life-long parasites, and/or apologists for the State’s evil,” including Sarah Huckabee Sanders, that I described as the White House propagandist, which is what she is. If you look at Sanders’s Wikipedia bio, it states that at age 10 she was already working on one of her father Gomer’s political campaigns.

So Gomer already had his daughter Sarah indoctrinated to worship the false god of the State early on, in my view, which is the case with many people in America, in and out of government. In college Sanders majored in political science and mass communications (i.e. government propaganda). In all her bios online I can’t find any evidence that she ever worked in the private sector. Just political campaigns and government. Yech.

And yes, many of today’s American Christians worship their false god, the government in Washington, as well as government rulers in general and their enforcers. And I think that includes the Huckabees, Sarah and her father Mike, a.k.a. Gomer.

Many are True Believers in this nationalistic “American Exceptionalism” theology that excuses U.S. government criminality in the name of trying to prevent people from getting drugs, and in the name of “spreading democracy” (another false god), i.e. warmongering.

Laurence Vance, who in my view is certainly more of an expert on the Bible and Christianity than Mike Huckabee, has written many articles and blog posts on Christians’ false worship of government as a god.

In his review of Mike Huckabee’s book, A Simple Government: Twelve Things We Really Need from Washington, Vance wrote:

Huckabee disparages redistribution of wealth, public assistance, abortion, Obamacare, out-of-wedlock births, public employee unions, government debt and deficits, tax increases, the estate tax, and government stimulus programs….On Social Security, Huckabee even calls for raising the retirement age, cutting benefits, delaying payments to the elderly by giving them tax incentives to keep working, and offering those who don’t need Social Security the option of a tax-free, lump-sum benefit payable at their death to their chosen beneficiary in lieu of collecting Social Security benefits. On Medicare, he calls for raising the age of eligibility. Yet, Huckabee falls short of labeling Social Security and Medicare what they really are – redistribution of wealth schemes that he condemns – and calling for their elimination. This is the problem with Huckabee and most Republicans and conservatives – they fall short, too short and too often. So, out of one side of his mouth Huckabee can disparage the things he does, but out of the other side he can support government-funded school breakfasts, “the right of every citizen to a free public education,” vouchers for Medicare recipients, elimination of the home mortgage interest deduction, the FairTax with its public-assistance, wealth-redistributing prebate, the Race to the Top federal program, a “reasonable deficit” of no more than 3 percent of GDP, and “hefty fines and prison time” for employers who choose to hire whom they wish.

With Huckabee being a Baptist preacher, one would think that he might call for missionaries to go to Iraq and Afghanistan and convert Muslims to Christianity instead of calling for U.S. soldiers to go and kill them: “We’ve had too many of our troops spending too much of their time painting schools and digging wells. They should be allowed to focus on killing Islamic extremists who want us all to die.”

In other words, today’s Christians and conservatives are like most True Believers in American Exceptionalism, blindly and obediently believing the government’s propaganda in the name of justifying wars of aggression and rationalizing murdering innocents overseas, and justifying the Amerikan police state. The collectivism of the 20th century continues to this day.

And also, why do the Exceptionalists never or rarely question the income tax? We never hear them criticize the government in its theft of private wealth and property, because most people are brainwashed to believe that their worshiped government authorities are entitled to the people’s earnings and wealth. And that includes conservatives and Christians who believe that crap.

And then there’s the drug war. While many Christians happily consume their own drug of choice, their beer and booze, they have no problem with siccing government police on peaceful people who happen to have some drug or plant that a bureaucrat doesn’t want them to have. On the drug war, Mike Huckabee is a True Believer in the Police State.

In Laurence Vance’s speech on Christianity, Libertarianism, and the Drug War, Vance wrote:

The burden of proof is on Christian drug warriors. Where did the Apostle Paul, in his travels throughout the Roman Empire, ever express support for any type of legislation or state action against vice, immorality, or sin? He certainly told Christians how they should live their life, and even provided lists of vices, immoral actions, and sins that Christians should avoid. Things like: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, covetousness, anger, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication, effeminacy, idolatry, hatred, strife, reveling, witchcraft, evil speaking, lying, and bitterness. But Paul never expressed a desire for the civil authorities to arrest, fine, or imprison anyone for engaging in these things. And neither do modern Christians. Just like they don’t call for the government to prosecute people for committing one of the seven deadly sins of pride, envy, wrath, sloth, avarice, gluttony, and lust. So what is so special, so egregious, about someone using drugs?

Christian(s) should only use persuasion. Persuasion, not coercion. Persuasion, not legislation. Persuasion, not legal action. Persuasion, not threats. Persuasion, not compulsion. Persuasion, not violence. Persuasion, not incarceration. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal” (2 Corinthians 10:4). There are, unfortunately, too many people in the United States—including too many Christians—who want to remake society in their own image and compel others to live only in ways that they approve of. Did you ever notice that there is no shortage of Americans—including no shortage of American Christians—willing to kill for the military, torture for the CIA, wiretap for the FBI, grope for the TSA, and destroy property for the DEA? It is not just libertarians who can appeal to the wisdom of Ludwig von Mises: “He who wants to reform his countrymen must take resource to persuasion. This alone is the democratic way of bringing about changes. If a man fails in his endeavors to convince other people of the soundness of his ideas, he should blame his own disabilities. He should not ask for a law, that is, for compulsion and coercion by the police.” That is the spirit of New Testament Christianity. And Mises was a nonreligious Jew, not a Christian.

The problem with many of these people is that they worship the government in Washington, the high-and-mighty rulers, and their enforcers and the military. False gods. But what bureaucrats and their enforcers have been doing to innocent, peaceful people have been evil criminal acts in the name of “enforcement” of bureaucratic edicts.

All this totalitarianism is exactly why the Founding Fathers created America, to protect the people from government violence!

So it is good that the people (aware of the risks of possible false arrest and false imprisonment, of course) harass, taunt, and shame Ted Baxter Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell et al. into rethinking their positions and votes and make them decide to vote and pass legislation to repeal and dismantle the Nazi-like police state, including DHS, TSA, ICE, DEA, NDAA, and so on. Congressional bureaucrats also need to be pressured to pass legislation to close down those U.S. military bases in all parts of the world that are not U.S. territories. They don’t belong there! Those are occupations, the wars our government has been starting against other countries have been criminal wars of aggression. But the Amerikan warvangelicals believe otherwise, sadly.

However, obviously it is not realistic to get power-grabbers to willfully let go of their unjust and undeserved powers over the people. As Jim Davies wrote, regarding the unrealistic possibility of a libertarian President,

…the change has to come bottom-up, not top-down. It must not – it cannot – be imposed from above, it must be demanded from beneath. Government will vanish not when a President announces it will cease to exist at year’s end, or whenever, but when it is universally seen to be so destructive that nobody will work for it. When all its employees walk out, there will be no need for an election, nobody will be over-ruled and nobody will riot.

Reasons to leave government employ are offered in TinyURL.com/QuitGov – pass that simple URL around – but that short site will not suffice on its own, to provide the in-depth education needed. For that, TOLFA or an equivalent must be offered to everyone – not just those now in “government service” but to all who might replace them when they quit.

Perhaps the protesters can harass, bother, taunt and humiliate the government employees, the apparatchiks of the vicious criminal regime (such as Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell and Sarah Huckabee Sanders) that they will decide to quit government “work” and instead go into the private sector, and others will follow.

End the Drug War

Laurence Vance says, “There is nothing positive about the DEA. Everything it does is pure evil: unnecessarily clogging the judicial system, asset forfeiture, no-knock raids, destroying property, criminalizing vice, arresting and incarcerating people for committing victimless crimes, destroying personal and financial privacy, ruining lives, devastating families, wasting the taxpayers’ money. And on top of all that, it has not reduced drug use, drug availability, drug demand, or drug overdoses.” Agreed. Dr. Vance is addressing the sweeping legislation that Donald Trump signed into law to combat the opioid addiction crisis. It sounds like police state on steroids (sorry).

The Migrant Caravan Crisis: Another Result of Government Central Planning

Here is my latest article on Activist Post, The Migrant Caravan Crisis: Another Result of Government Central Planning

October 31, 2018

The Pentagon is sending 6,000 U.S. troops to the southern border, to protect Americans from the migrants “invading” from mainly Central American countries. The migrants are fleeing violence and chaos. In an interview with Laura Ingraham (via Economic Policy Journal), Donald Trump says he’s going to have tent prisons built to house the migrants. The U.S. will not build permanent structures. Okay, he didn’t call them “prisons,” I’m calling them that.

But Trump is a typical central-planning-obsessed bureaucrat. And an authoritarian as well. Rather than recognizing that much of what’s causing the violence and chaos in those other countries are U.S. government policies, such as the drug war especially, the Central-Planner-in-Chief will increase the central-planning that will escalate the problems further as well as create new problems. If you think that the 100-mile Constitution-Free-Zone is bad with ICE and border control goons illegally and criminally invading the persons and property of innocent people, Americans or otherwise, then wait until the military is on the border. They probably will not be just on the border but farther within the U.S.

And note the timing of the migrant caravan coming up through Mexico from Central America, just like the timing of the package bombs and the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, just weeks before a big election here in the U.S. And I don’t know if the migrant caravan is all Soros-instigated and funded, or if it could be yet another CIA psy-op on behalf of aiding the military in its expanding power and the U.S. government giving the military contractors even further tax-funded extravagances, who knows.

That’s not too far-fetched, given that just in the past 10-15 years as well as the past 50 years our beloved U.S. government has conspired in several government-instigated plots and false flag psy-ops. Even though those events are well documented, many people who love their Washington rulers and who worship the military cannot hear such things, they just cannot accept that their own government can act criminally and be evil. As Jacob Hornberger wrote back in 2013, conspiracies are inherent to the national security state, and he listed 22 real conspiracies just from the 1950s to the 1970s alone.

Regarding the migrants who are fleeing drug war tyranny, drug lords and turf wars, drug traffickers, sex traffickers and human traffickers, if you end the drug war, much of those things will also end immediately. They will naturally go away because there will no longer be a black market in drugs that drug prohibition causes, there will no longer be an incentive for miserable wretches to make a huge profit off the vices, weaknesses and addictions of others.

Aside from the drug war, conservatives suggest that undocumented immigrants are coming to the U.S. to get on welfare, even though most come to get work rather than welfare. Still, this is a case against the welfare state, not against immigration to the U.S.

And Trump and conservatives are suggesting that there are MS-13 gang members being infiltrated in the migrant caravan, as well as Islamic terrorists who want to come here to kill Americans.

MS-13 is in large part a result of the civil wars in Central America, particularly El Salvador. The problem is that the U.S. government took sides there and greatly contributed to escalation of violence.

And those Islamic terrorists also being infiltrated in the migrant caravan (if that really is the case as claimed by neocons and warmongers)? Well, just what incentive would Islamic people from the Middle East have to do bad things to Americans? Could it be that the U.S. military has been invading and bombing Middle Eastern and Asian countries for decades and decades, murdering hundreds of thousands of civilians, especially since the end of the Cold War? That was when President George H.W. Bush started the first war of aggression against Iraq in 1991, authorized the U.S. military’s bombing of civilian Iraqi water and sewage treatment centers, caused the Iraqi civilians to have to use untreated water and thus cause skyrocketing rates of disease and, because of the sanctions and no-fly zones, caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands by the mid-1990s and hundreds of thousands more by the year 2000. (See James Bovard and Jacob Hornberger for more information on those sanctions.)

Government central planning doesn’t work and only escalates existing problems and/or creates new problems. As far as why the invasive, criminal, murderous actions of the U.S. government, military and CIA overseas for decades have caused further conflicts, violence, terrorism, and radicalized and motivated foreigners to want to come to the U.S. in retaliation, see Who Are the Terrorists? (from 1986) by Murray Rothbard, Terrorism, Anti-Terrorism, and American Foreign Policy (from 1996) by Richard Ebeling, Breeding Terrorism (from 1999) by Sheldon Richman, and Terrorism … or War? (from 2000) by Jacob Hornberger. And see this video from the late 1990s of Congressman Ron Paul warning that such actions by the U.S. government are bound to cause some kind of terrorist attack within the shores of the U.S. Those articles were all prior to 9/11.

Whenever Washington’s bureaucrats get the CIA or military involved in other countries’ conflicts, the conflicts are escalated or worsened. That is what central planning does, whether it’s in the form of drug or alcohol prohibition, medical care, immigration or national security. Read Planned Chaos by Ludwig von Mises to understand the negative effects of central planning.

So, rather than militarism, turning the guns of the U.S. military on immigrants, imprisoning immigrants, continuing the futile attempt to control the movements of millions of people which is impossible, and continuing the futile attempt to prevent people from getting drugs which they continue to get anyway, let’s instead put an end to all that government central planning, end the drug war and the war on immigrants, and end the sick militarism that is extremely unbecoming of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison’s vision of America.

More on the New Authoritarian “Justice,” and Sexual Assault, Civil Unrest

Donald Trump continues to make campaign appearances on behalf of Republican candidates. In a recent appearance he was declaring how great his new Supreme Bureaucrat Brett Kavanaugh is, with his supporters cheering enthusiastically. Now, those cheering supporters are either ignorant of Brett Kavanaugh’s decisions, or they agree with them, which is probably the case.

And no, Kavanaugh is not “brilliant,” he is himself ignorant (or really dumb). As I have written several times now, Kavanaugh imagines that the Fourth Amendment has things in it that just aren’t there. He wrote, “The Fourth Amendment allows governmental searches and seizures without individualized suspicion when the Government demonstrates a sufficient ‘special need’…” such as involving drugs or border checkpoints. Okay, Justice (sic), where does it say those things in the Fourth Amendment?

That Amendment states: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

I don’t see …”unless the government demonstrates a sufficient ‘special need'” or any listing of exceptions, such as “drugs.” So, like most authoritarians who just want to empower the government police to raid the homes and businesses of innocent people for specious reasons, Kavanaugh is just making things up in his rubber-stamping of the police state to satisfy his own ideological leanings. An authoritarian is someone who believes that specific rules that are set for those in power may be broken based on the whim of the enforcers.

And it’s amazing the talk radio ditto-heads who have been complaining about the Obama FBI and DOJ abusing their FISA spying authority to go after political opponents, and repeatedly citing the “Fourth Amendment,” yet having wet dreams over their newest police-statist Kavanaugh that they love so much. So please Sean Hannity (and Rand Paul, too!) shut up about the “Fourth Amendment.” These “conservatives” generally support police “stop-and-frisk” policies without suspicion of an individual, policies that Trump was recently extolling to the cheers of rabid government police chiefs from across the country.

Now, given that Kavanaugh supports such an authoritarian police state and rubber-stamps the unconstitutional Guantanamo prison that exists so the feds can sidestep the Constitution they swore an oath to support and defend, it would not surprise me if he really was the one who Christine Ford Blasey was victimized by of sexual assault. Of course, I’m not accusing him, just saying it wouldn’t surprise me, given his supporting brute force by government against innocent people, by police against presumably innocent people without suspicion, and so on.

And that’s another thing. All this about sexual assault and the idea that one teenage boy might do that to a teenage girl. If that ever does happen, I think that parents need to raise their girls to bravely go and report such violence against them to the police, at that time. And not wait years later. I know that they were drunk and the victim might not remember, and repressed memories until years later and all that. But if the victim is aware at that time, she needs to report the assailant.

Another thing parents need to do is raise their girls with knowledge of self-defense. Whether learning karate or judo, or having mace or a gun, or even poking an assailant in the eyes. Am I all wrong on this? I might be.

And speaking of self-defense, in the alternative news (that the fake news mainstream media sweeps under the rug), we are hearing about antifa thugs going into streets and harassing motorists and pedestrians, and maybe even worse than just harassing. If someone is the victim of an assault the victim needs to know how to fight back. I am very distressed hearing about these antifa thugs targeting innocent people, and hope to hear about someone fighting back, or even shooting back to protect themselves. Glenn Beck this morning played some audio of those things, and he’s saying it might be the beginning of a “civil war.” I hope not. Because if so, those people who are fighting back (against the ones who are initiating the aggression) will be the government’s victims in its arms confiscations, its police breaking into and entering private homes and stealing weapons to make innocent people defenseless. And Brett Kavanaugh will rubber-stamp all that, given his record of neanderthal authoritarianism.

Sen. Rand Paul: Ignoramus? Hypocrite?

Sen. Rand Paul had already stated that he will vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Bureaucrats, and he has reiterated that support. Dr. Paul declares, “The preponderance of evidence from hundreds of people who knew him and worked with him indicates he is a good man with a good reputation for integrity and character.”

Now, what planet is Rand Paul living on? It’s not planet reality, that’s for sure. For someone who has spent hours and hours, speech after speech, and his 2016 Presidential debates defending the Fourth Amendment and its set rules that government must follow regarding searches and seizures, Rand Paul is either a total hypocrite or he is extremely forgetful already at the young age of 55.

Doesn’t Dr. Paul know that as a judge Brett Kavanaugh has trashed the Fourth Amendment? Kavanaugh reads into the 4th as stating that there are exceptions to the rules.

The Fourth Amendment rules that must be followed are that government and enforcers must have reasonable suspicion, probable cause and a warrant signed by a judge to search anyone’s person, houses, papers or effects. Kavanaugh imagines some kind of “special need” of the government to pry and invade regardless of the rules, regardless of the law that enforcers must obey, in the name of validating the police state and further empowering the feds’ surveillance of innocent non-suspects.

The Fourth Amendment says nothing about exceptions. It says nothing about “exigent circumstances.” And the reasons Kavanaugh has for allowing police and NSA spies to break the law and violate their Constitutional oaths? Because of drugs, airport security, i.e. issues where government has no Constitutional authority.

Where in the Fourth Amendment does it list ANY exceptions? So Kavanaugh imagines those made-up exceptions out of thin air. Is he one of those who says, “well the Founders didn’t have to deal with the issues we face today”? Like the people on the Left who believe the Constitution is a “living, breathing document,” and all that crapola.

Besides the Fourth Amendment, Kavanaugh totally eviscerates the Fifth, Sixth and Eighth Amendments with his rubber-stamping of the Guantanamo prison in Cuba, its illegal and criminal torture regime, and detaining innocent people without charges.

And he rubber-stamps CIA secrecy, sweeping the truth about its criminality under the rug.

More recently, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard wrote about his personal experiences with Brett Kavanaugh, showing the extent to which Kavanaugh is nothing more than a government apparatchik, an enmeshed appendage of the State itself. Donald Trump is NOT “draining the swamp” when he appoints a swamp creature to the “High” Court.

So, Rand Paul has no knowledge of Kavanaugh’s actual record? The Fourth Amendment no longer matters? The Constitution, and our liberty, no longer matter? So, is Dr. Paul just really ignorant of Brett Kavanaugh’s rulings, or is Rand a total hypocrite and is more concerned with pleasing Mitch McConnell and keeping his membership on Senate committees? Has Rand Paul just become a clone of Donald Trump?

And also, because the anti-Kavanaugh screaming from the Left has nothing to do with liberty, the Bill of Rights or illegal surveillance and searches, and instead has everything to do with “social justice,” gender and race politics, is this why Rand Paul and conservatives and Republicans are all in with Brett Kavanaugh?

Don’t they know that Kavanaugh, too, is a “Social Justice Warrior”? The whole thing is Bizarro World, quite frankly.

Orwellian: Dr. Blasey Ford vs. Judge Kavanaugh

I heard quite a bit of the hysterical circus otherwise known as the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings yesterday on the radio. I’m sure that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford really did experience a sexual assault during high school, maybe more than once, and maybe during college or after as well. I don’t think she’s making it up.

Jacob Hornberger says he believes Ford and that Judge Kavanaugh’s demeanor was shocking and that he seemed engaged in bluster. Meanwhile Robert Wenzel reluctantly thinks Kavanaugh should still be approved to the Supreme Court, as a way to expose the hysteria and true colors on the Left, even though Kavanaugh is an Establishment elitist and authoritarian Patriot Act supporter.

And Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Shady Pines) withholding the initial Ford complaint letter for over a month until after all the hearings, and after her own interviewing of Kavanaugh, was a disgrace. Feinstein needs to be censured by the Senate, and maybe even brought up on charges of obstruction of justice. And Sen. Tricky Dick Durbin and Sen. Kamala Harris telling Kavanaugh that he himself ask for an FBI investigation, when they themselves can very well do that, like, he should want the same FBI to investigate him who illicitly cleared Hillary Clinton for political reasons and who fabricated a whole “Russia collusions” case to frame up a candidate or President.

Anyway, there are a lot of discrepancies in this whole case. It wouldn’t surprise me if Kavanaugh really did do what he is accused of doing. Through his opinions as a judge he shows someone who believes in dominance and authoritarian government power, not liberty, not in a check on government power. And also, given all the drinking he apparently did as a youngin and supposedly still loves beer, and given that alcohol kills brain cells, I can see how his thinking has been affected over the years. Is that fair of me to bring up that point? I think so.

But regardless of all that, I really don’t care any more if Kavanaugh becomes another member of the Supreme Parasites. Even the “liberals” on the High court rubber stamp the hysterical post-9/11 police state. One violation of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments after another. And they approve of police power, as does Kavanaugh. In one 8-1 decision by the Supremes, with at least 3 “liberals” among the 8, they approved of police criminally breaking into a home because they smelled marijuana, and/or they heard a toilet flushing inside, indicating that “evidence” was being flushed down the toilet. Evidence of WHAT, you morons? A NON-CRIME! And where in the U.S. Constitution does it authorize the U.S. government to get involved with DRUGS?

The Supreme Bureaucrats merely reflect the statists who appoint them, who reflect the authoritarian sheeple who elect the statists who appoint such judges. So Judge Kavanaugh can join the other ignoramuses on the High Court. In one opinion, he wrote,

The Fourth Amendment allows governmental searches and seizures without individualized suspicion when the Government demonstrates a sufficient “special need” – that is, a need beyond the normal need for law enforcement – that outweighs the intrusion on individual liberty. Examples include drug testing of students, roadblocks to detect drunk drivers, border checkpoints, and security screening at airports. […] The Government’s program for bulk collection of telephony metadata serves a critically important special need – preventing terrorist attacks on the United States.

Huh? The Fourth Amendment mentions that exceptions are allowed when the government can demonstrate a “special need”? Where does it say that in the Fourth Amendment? And NSA spying on Americans “prevents terrorist attacks”? How so, Judge Beerbelly?

I know, I know. I shouldn’t call him, “Judge Beerbelly.” But we might as well.

And I am not at all surprised that Kavanaugh has the authoritarian statist mentality that he has, given that he grew up in the center of elitist privilege, in the Washington, D.C. area, with a judge mother. He might as well be a Kennedy.

And I disagree with Wenzel regarding Kavanaugh’s presence on the Supreme Court helping to further expose the irrational zombies on the Left as is going on now. ANY conservative now will do that. Perhaps Judge Amy Coney Barrett would be more acceptable. At least she’s more attractive. (What? I’m not supposed to say that?) Isn’t she the one that DiFi attacked in her religious beliefs? Let’s see that again, DiFi.

And yes, Roe v. Wade should be overturned, because it’s a bad decision. Kavanaugh knows this, but he is a coward who is afraid to tell the truth, like most politicians. Nine robed parasites drawing a line on the life span of an unborn human being and saying, “Prior to this stage of growth and development it’s okay to kill the baby,” but after this stage of growth and development it’s not okay.” (So we can use that as “precedent” to later on draw a line at, say, age 75, and say the same thing.) THAT is the mentality of the abortion cult/death cult fanatics on the Left.
