Let’s Celebrate the 100th Year of the End of World War I

Both Jacob Hornberger and Laurence Vance have provocative articles today. People who were raised to not question the government’s schemes (that is, most people in America) will probably not appreciate either article. Sometimes I refer to such people as “sheeple,” or “brainwashed sheeple,” but I mean no offense or insult.

For example, Jacob Hornberger says that the U.S. soldiers who died in World War I died for nothing, for no good reason. In my view, most people have been conditioned to believe otherwise. They don’t want to consider the possibility that the President sent Americans off to die for no good reason. In fact, many people who might be reading this are already clicking their bookmarks to go to the next blog or website. They’re True Believers, in my view.

But, as Hornberger stated, the U.S. soldiers who died in World War I did die for nothing. He notes:

Ironically, in other to wage his war Wilson had to resort to conscription. When one has to force men to fight in a war, that’s a pretty good sign that that is not a good war. Moreover, forcing men to serve the state, especially by killing and dying in a foreign war, obviously destroyed the freedom of those who were conscripted. What could be worse than dying for “freedom” when you’ve been forced to die for “freedom.”

Hornberger says that Woodrow Wilson’s legacy with World War I includes World War II, which may very well have not occurred had Wilson not entered the U.S. into World War I. And results of the second World War included the national security state and the government’s war on liberty and privacy, as well as the sacrificed non-interventionist foreign policy of America’s founders.

And Laurence Vance comments on the “Thank you for your service” catchphrase associated with the slaves sacrificial animals U.S. military personnel who made themselves useful to serve the egos and financial interests of government bureaucrats and their cronies in Washington.

Vance begins his article by listing many people who should be thanked for their service, including

To those who work on holidays: Thank you for your service.

To those who work on weekends: Thank you for your service.

To those who drive cabs or UBER in the middle of the night: Thank you for your service.

To those who take care of the elderly living in nursing homes who suffer with dementia: Thank you for your service.

The list continues and seems almost endless. And then he continues by stating, “Sorry veterans. There is nothing about your service that is worthy of thanks.”

And he lists reason why, including:

We don’t thank you for following immoral orders.

We don’t thank you for fighting unjust wars.

We don’t thank you for serving Uncle Sam instead of the country.

We don’t thank you for going to countries where you had no business going.

We don’t thank you for fighting senseless wars.

We don’t thank you for acting as the world’s policeman.

We don’t thank you for bombing, maiming, and killing for the state.

We don’t thank you for engaging in offense instead of defense.

We don’t thank you for making widows and orphans.

We don’t thank you for invading and occupying countries.

There are several more reasons as well.

But as we hear constantly from the talk radio ditto-heads, at sporting events, and all over Amerika, most people are gullible and have been believing the lies of the regime in Washington the past century. They don’t see our soldiers as “invading and occupying countries” and “making widows and orphans” and all the rest. Or, if U.S. soldiers were sent to invade other countries, it was probably for a good reason. Americans have convinced themselves of that, because they just can’t fathom the thought that U.S. bureaucrats in Washington would send American boys off to die for no good reason, or for specious reasons. Sad.

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.

The Irrational vs. the Rational of Libertarians

Who knows why some so-called libertarians or conservative libertarians are so hysterical and irrational when it comes to the immigration issue. This one by Bionic Mosquito on LewRockwell.com is another one of those.

It’s like this is an “either-or” kind of thing. We either have an all-private property society, or we have complete government control over borders and immigration into the territory. And because we don’t have an all-private property society, we MUST accept the police state and central planning in immigration, and not complain (so it seems).

Bionic says that, well, “Until there are no state borders, it will be the state that makes the decision on who crosses the borders.  In a world of state borders, every decision regarding immigration is a centrally-planned, state-enforced-at-the-end-of-the-barrel-of-a-gun decision; even a position of open borders.” And that’s that.

So, implied here as well as on many of these kinds of articles is a support for the central planners’ control that they have legally, and a support for the police state.

The libertarian conservatives seem to be frightened by the thousands of migrants from Central America “walking” up to the U.S. southern border. There’s a lot of propaganda out there, though. And I don’t believe that this is all “Soros-funded” and left-wing activist-directed. If you ask me, the “caravan” might very well be another psy-op being caused by the “national security” apparatus in Washington, who wants to fear-monger the people (including anti-“national security” libertarians) into supporting an even further intensified police state at the border and inside the border (and further increased budgets for all the police state agencies “protecting” us from all those bad people). Let’s put the military on the border so we can justify even larger budget increases for the military (in addition to Trump’s new “Space Force”). Yay.

Still, it’s immoral to violate the lives and liberty of innocent people because others have been violent or have been criminals. America used to be about individualism. But the libertarian conservatives seem to have become collectivists now. It is very disappointing to see libertarians engaging in group identity politics, but that is what we have here, in my view. Sad.

I wonder if Bionic supports arresting and caging businessmen for hiring unauthorized foreigners at their businesses, or raids on innocent people’s property, arresting those who have not harmed anyone, and on and on.

Contrasting the hysteria and irrationality with the so-called libertarians who now love the police state and central planning, we have the rational Jacob Hornberger, who writes about Donald Trump’s brilliant political strategy with the caravan “invading” our southern border:

Notwithstanding the fact that none of these refugees is armed and that the group includes lots of women and children, you would think that the United States is about to be invaded by the North Vietnamese, North Korean, Red Chinese, or Soviet armies (which was the official bugaboo throughout the Cold War). Trump has his supporters in a total tizzy. His dramatic decision to send (more) U.S. troops to the border to protect us from the coming “invasion” is nothing less than sheer political genius.

The result of Trump’s strategy? Countless Trumpistas are now quivering and quaking over the fact that the “illegals” are coming to get us. “Please, please, Mr. President, do whatever is necessary to keep us safe. Take away our freedoms and spend whatever you need to spend

The only thing that works and the only thing that is consistent with moral principles is freedom and free markets, which necessarily means free trade, open immigration, freedom of association, freedom of travel, economic liberty, private property, liberty of contract, and privacy. What could be more rational than steadfastly continuing to stand for freedom and free markets and against a police state?

Do the anti-immigration libertarians ever spend as much time criticizing the police state as they do criticizing “open borders”? They don’t seem to spend much time in articles or blogs doing that. Why don’t they spend more time advocating eliminating the welfare state and the drug war as well? I rarely see, “Get rid of DHS, ICE, BTF, FBI, CIA, DEA, Etc., Etc.,” anymore.

So, to me, the libertarians on the right have become quite irrational and have lost touch with libertarian principles, maybe just as much as the libertarians on the left who have lost touch in their obsession with “social justice” and race and gender, and all that crap.

The Package Bombs Sent to Democrats: Not a False Flag?

Regarding the package bombs apparently being mailed to the Clintons and the Obamas’ homes, to George Soros and CNN, Thomas DiLorenzo wrote yesterday on the LewRockwell.com blog:

Another Non-Bomb “Bomb” Discovered . . .

. . . near a business owned by yet another unhinged, hysterically Trump-hating Democrat, this time Robert DeNiro in NYC. I note that the LMS (Lying Media Scum) are now calling these things “suspicious packages.” Surely the people who fabricated the lie that a Supreme Court nominee once ran a drug/gang-rape ring when he was 16 would not stoop to a stunt this low, would they?

UPDATE: This Just In: LMS now reporting another “suspicious package” near the residence of Joe Biden. The Trump-hating FBI is on the scene to investigate and get to the bottom of this. (Unless of course it was the same Trump-hating FBI, the people who concocted the “Russia investigation,” who planted the “suspicious packages” in the first place). Will the FBI shoot and kill a “loner” who they claim to be the culprit with no witnesses in another alleged “confrontation”? Will they then tell us that his computer showed that he frequented “right-wing Web sites”? Will they immediately bury him at sea, bin Laden style?

And now this morning, CNBC reports that a 56-year-old suspect has been arrested.

Investigators were examining a white van plastered with stickers carrying Trump’s name and the presidential seal, according to MSNBC. The network said authorities were looking at “right-wing paraphernalia” found at the scene.

But as I was writing yesterday, who would actually benefit from fake bomb-packages being sent to Democrats just weeks before a big election? WHY would a Trump supporter send those kinds of things to Democrats just weeks or days before a big election? Would Trump and the Republicans actually benefit from such a dumb act? And anyway, we already know that Trump-hating bureaucrats and former bureaucrats with the FBI, DOJ, and CIA have provided enough evidence to show that not only did Trump not “collude with Russians,” and that no Russians (or anyone) “hacked the election,” but that those bureaucrats criminally abused their spying authorities to spy on the Trump campaign to try to dig up dirt on Trump as well as to try to frame Trump in a non-existent “collusions with Russia” or “hacking the election” scheme.

So as I was writing yesterday, false flag much? So, a lunatic apparently loves Trump and is intelligent enough to put some kind of devices together to make it look like they could explode, but is so dumb as to not see that Trump or Republicans could not possibly benefit from such a stunt? Sorry, this one doesn’t pass the smell test, if you ask me.

Speaking of false flags, Washington’s Blog had this great article with example after example of governments implementing false flag ops, especially our beloved U.S. government in Washington, and really for the sake of justifying ever-increasing tax-funded military budgets, national security budgets and bureaucracies, and so forth. The parasites in Washington will always grow in their power and their fiefdoms, and the police state they love to tyrannize their own people with. Sick.

Washington’s Blog notes how the mainstream media (i.e. government media) will not report on any of these false flag matters. They are mostly mouthpieces for the Bureaucracy. Many of them are extremely gullible and naive and they will believe anything that bureaucrats tell them, without any questioning or investigating.

Many of the media are also brainwashed with the political correctness nonsense of today that they are as obsessed with race and gender as the college professors and snowflake students. With today’s news media, it’s not nearly the case in getting actual thorough news reporting out to their readers and viewers.

In fact, race-obsession political correctness is so important at the aforementioned NBC, they are fine with Megyn Kelly leaving NBC with the remainder of her $69 million contract rather than allowing her to “get away with” making some innocent comment about wearing blackface on Halloween. But reporting on false flags or government corruption? (Only if they’re Republicans, of course. And the dishonest media report on “right-wing” violence but rarely left-wing violence. Did you see this huge list of violent attacks or threats against Republicans just in the past few months?)

Anyway, regarding the lack of reporting on false flags, ABC News did report on Operations Northwoods and Mongooose, after those false flag ops or proposals were de-classified.

As Bradley Manning has stated, and he’s correct about this, everything should be de-classified. The government doesn’t “own” any of the information it keeps. ALL government information belongs to the public, and is in the “public domain.”

As Judge Andrew Napolitano wrote, “In the clash between government secrecy and public transparency, the Framers placed a value judgment in the First Amendment . . . An informed public is more likely to make better decisions than an ignorant one…In a free society, knowledge is superior to ignorance. Politicians who would criminalize publishing the truth should be voted out of office.”

Those who say, “Well releasing ‘classified’ information to the public compromises the security of military personnel overseas” are ignorant, authoritarian sheeple who believe the propaganda that gubmint tells them, as repeated word-for-word by the stenographers in the mainstream media (i.e. government media). The actual truth that was revealed at Manning’s kangaroo trial was that not one person was killed, harmed or threatened by Manning’s release of documents to WikiLeaks.

The government intentionally over-classifies information anyway, to hide its own criminality, its incompetence, and its corruption.

Anyway, even if it might be the case that an actual deranged moron in Florida who loves Trump and hates Democrats sent those fake bombs to Democrats, the case is still hard to figure out. It’s just not believable to me, with all the facts of the case thus far.
