Trump Attorney Sydney Powell Details Vote Fraud Accusations

You’ve probably heard that the Trump campaign has been accusing the Democrats of stealing the election with massive vote fraud schemes, flipping votes from Trump to Biden, bringing in coolers and suitcases full of “mail-in” ballots for Biden, etc., etc. The software for some of the machines used is by a company called “Dominion” which apparently is highly suspect.

In this video, Trump campaign attorney Sydney Powell goes over some of the details for “Greg Kelly Reports” on Newsmax TV.

However, Jon Rappoport and Tucker Carlson are asking Sydney Powell to provide evidence of her accusations. It seems to me that she and other attorney Rudy Giuliani have presented a lot of evidence, including witness sworn affidavits. Although, there is a lot of circumstantial evidence such as vote tallies occurring showing numbers that could not be possible statistically, and the sudden stopping of vote counting late election night after it was clear that Trump was winning by a wide margin, followed by a sudden increase in Biden votes appearing out of no where.

But these elections are futile, anyway. When will people learn that central planning doesn’t work? The larger the country and the larger the central government the more chaos and dysfunction you will have. All the power-seekers and power-grabbers and psychopaths are driven to the central power structure in Washington. The country needs to decentralize. I have explained all that several times here, including in this article.

Some Post-Election Comments

I’m posting this around noon, with no word on who the next puppet will be, Trump or Biden (i.e. Harris).

The final vote tally is not yet ready, but it looks like Libertarian Party presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen is getting roughly 1 to 2% of the vote. She might as well be Lyndon LaRouche. In 2016 Gary Johnson the pothead got roughly 3.27% of the vote which was the highest ever for the LP.

I think that, had the hacks and apparatchiks of the “Libertarian” Party gone with Jacob Hornberger as their presidential nominee (the one the actual voters in the state primaries overwhelmingly voted for), there would have been a lot more enthusiasm among many in the Liberty movement, probably better publicity and more support. I am not saying that Jacob could have taken that many votes away from Trump and Biden to get much more over 3 or 4%. But, he was the better, more consistently libertarian and principled candidate.

But nooo, the hacks and apparatchiks of the “Libertarian” Party snubbed the voters of the primaries and went with the “social justice” crap, this obsession with gender and race that “social justice warriors” seem to have.

I would definitely support a 2024 LP candidate Jacob Hornberger, who will be only 74 then. Hell, I’d support Ron Paul at age 89 in 2024 for President. But, it looks like we probably won’t have an America anymore by 2024, because the Democrats and Republicans have turned the country into Amerika, and getting worse.

My preference instead is to just get rid of Washington, D.C., because it has outlasted its usefulness, whatever usefulness it ever had (which is to say, none). Decentralization is the answer to all this.

I know, I know. It is unrealistic to hope that someday the libertarian message will get across to the masses, when the government controls the education system and the mass media. That was apparent way back in 1988 after I voted for Libertarian Party nominee Ron Paul and then saw that he received just a few hundred thousand votes. The “news” media didn’t really report on his candidacy. There was no change in the reporting from the “news” media in 1992 with that election’s terrible LP nominee, Andre Marrou.

Back then, the “news” media would declare: “There are only Republican and Democrat, and that’s it.” Anyone who had views that strayed from the beloved Establishment, views that challenged the statist quo, were “fringe” or “extremists,” and shouldn’t be taken seriously.

Had today’s “news” media morons been around during the time of the American Revolution, those who promoted property rights, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence would have been run out of town and dismissed as “fringe” and “extremists,” as today’s promoters of liberty still are. Nothing has changed in all these decades in which the government has controlled education and dumbed down generations of people.

The ignorant “news” media along with the dumb-dumbs of the Democrat Party went with a corrupt Alzheimer’s sufferer as their favored candidate for President. That tells us something, doesn’t it?

And you can see how the low-IQ “news” media and their social media compadres are now not only ignoring libertarians and otherwise anti-Establishment dissidents but outright smearing, blacklisting and censoring them.

So while we’re all waiting, waiting, waiting to get final results of the election, election officials are counting, counting, counting ballots, mail-in ballots, absentee, as well as making up and stuffing ballots, putting in names of dead people, finding “lost” ballots in their car trunks and refrigerators, and more. And it’s mostly Democrats doing those cheating things.

Yes, Republicans have cheated and stolen elections or nominations, such as the Romney people stealing the nomination away from Ron Paul in 2012, but mainly it’s Democrats doing most of the cheating. They are the ones who want to extend ballot deadlines well past the date of the election, so they have more time to throw out Republican ballots and make up new ballots. The Democrats are the party of “ranked choice,” which is used to intentionally confuse voters and so the third runner-up will be the winner and not the actual top vote-getter. And the Democrats are the party who don’t want ID requirements to verify a voter’s identity. It’s easier to cheat without being required to identify yourself. Duh.

And in this election specifically, the Democrat and leftist people have shown how unhinged they are in their hatred of Donald Trump. I’ve never seen anything like it in all my years.

First they make up a “Russia collusions, interfering in the election” scheme, along with a made-up Steele dossier that was used to present false information to the FISA court to illegally spy on the Trump campaign (a collusions accusation that was all debunked by the Mueller report). And then they have a CIA “whistleblower” use an everyday phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president to try to impeach Trump, which didn’t succeed. And then the Covid scamdemic, whose main purpose was to terrorize the masses to fear voting in person on November 3rd so they would want to mail in ballots, so the mail-in balloting could be used for massive cheating and voter fraud (like they’re doing right now). The scamdemic terrorism and panic was also used to tank the economy, and tank they did, to try to undo Trump’s economic successes with the tax-cut-stimulated economic expansion and extremely low unemployment rate.

But despite the schemes and the cheating, by extremist, unhinged low-IQ psychopaths and loony-tunes Democrats and their “national security” partners, Trump will probably still win reelection. Nancy Lugosi will begin the first of many impeachment proceedings because she and the other wackos just don’t like him. But the House will stay under Democrat control for that wonderful gridlock. If you’re pro-liberty, should should appreciate gridlock. And if Biden still wins, the Senate looks like it will remain Republican controlled to slow down the Democrats in the Soviet-clone communist paradise they are drooling to inflict on the rest of us.

Ignorant, government-loving Trump still hasn’t drained the swamp, and it doesn’t seem he ever will. Not with Jeff Sessions, Bill Barr, Chris Wray and Gina Haspel, as well as the Goldman Sachs crowd including Steven Mnuchin. And all the military generals Trump has surrounded himself with, all those horrible interventionists, neocons, militarists, globalists, etc.

In 2012 there was a good chance that a Republican presidential nominee Ron Paul could have ousted Obama, because Dr. Paul was the only candidate who was beating Obama in the polls in head-to-head matches. Romney is…whatever.

But the truth is, the only way now to save our hanging-by-a-thread civilized society is to decentralize the society. That means getting rid of the government in Washington, even through secession if necessary. Such a notion bothers a lot of people who are long-time nationalists, like most conservatives especially. But that is what needs to be done. Otherwise, it is becoming Soviet Union 2.0 and that’s not good.

On the Choice Between Two Anti-Freedom Fascist/Socialists

Many conservatives, Republicans and libertarians are saying that we had better vote for Donald Trump or the whole country is going to be a third-world hell-hole, and many liberals, Democrats and progressives are saying that we had better vote for Joe Biden or the whole place will be ruled by white supremacists, racists, nazis, etc.

Well, they’re all wrong, and I wrote this post in February 2014 that I will repost today, and thought you might find it of interest. (The one video included is no longer there, and there might be one or two links that don’t work.)

Hmmm. Which Lying Shyster Should I Vote For This Time?

February 2, 2014

Some people seem to think that I’m a real drag when it comes to my criticisms of society, America’s decline and elections. There are those who look forward to the next election so they can go to the polls really believing they will make a difference.

Uh-uh. You’re just wasting your time. And if you want to continue living in a fantasy world, that’s up to you.

Liberty activist Judy Morris has this blog post titled, “Voting Doesn’t Matter Because All Elections Are Controlled by R and D Big Money, Big Banksters, Big Corporations and Big Defense Contractors.” And she goes on explaining just how these elections don’t matter, how democracy is a majority voting to make use of the State’s police powers to take other people’s stuff, how the two major parties in control shut out challengers to the status quo, and how the corporations and fat cats are really buying the elections. But then she goes on to make suggestions on changing campaign funding laws and encouraging support for third parties. So she’s being very realistic until the very last three or four paragraphs, which just didn’t make sense to me.

I especially liked Ms. Morris’s comparing Dinesh D’Souza to the billionaires the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson, George Soros et al. D’Souza has recently been attacked by the fascist Obama DOJ for campaign finance violations because of a mere amount of $20,000. Yet, the Kochs and Adelson and their hack organizations threw tens of millions of dollars down the drain to fund the loser, Willard Romney. Obviously, the only reason Obama’s corrupt and criminal DOJ is going after D’Souza is because of D’Souza’s film 2016 on Obama.

Morris writes:

By law, an individual can only contribute $2,500 to a candidate. Even if ordinary folks could afford a $2,500 campaign contribution to a candidate, which they can’t, the lion’s share of political money comes from PAC’s, special interests, banksters, defense contractors etc. and these are the folks who own and control the RNC and DNC machines.

While the Huffington Post reported that the 2012 presidential election cost $2 billion,Politico reported that the cost of the 2012 presidential and congressional elections was $6 billion, here. Open Secrets, an organization that specifically tracks political money, also reported that the 2012 presidential and congressional elections cost $6 billion, here.

It’s clearly evident that the rich and powerful hijacked and now own our election system. The RNC and DNC machines are nothing but money laundering machines for special interests.

If an individual voter can only contribute a maximum of $2,500 to a candidate and if Denesh D’Souza is being prosecuted for his role in a puny $20,000 campaign finance fiasco, how is it that the Koch Brothers can legally pony up a staggering $400 million and casino magnet Adelson can pony up $100 million to influence election outcomes?

Most recently, this corporate financial influence in elections can be seen in the ObamaCare and anti-gun rights propaganda being pushed by the Soviet NFL for the upcoming Super Bowl. Here is Alex Jones on that:

But for elections, one of Judy Morris’s solutions is to “ban all fund raising by anybody except the candidates and they should only be allowed to raise money from individual voters.” But all that has some First Amendment problems, because really individuals and groups have a right to spend or waste their money on whatever they want.

But Ms. Morris’s suggestion to vote for third parties is not practical, as those parties or candidates who are anti-State and pro-freedom do not seem to get the attention they deserve or are silenced by the ones in control of the process. The ones in control are those members of the U.S. CONgress and all their minions all across America who love power and are NOT going to give it up voluntarily. They will not vote to loosen election laws to make life easier for third parties or anti-Establishment candidates.

And the Rulers in control, such as “Speaker” Boehner and Mitch McConjob and others will not vote or support policies which advance freedom. Sooner or later, people are really going to have to accept the truth of the matter.

And regarding the idea of using elections to reverse the trend of ever-growing government intrusiveness and criminality, I wrote in my March, 2010 article, November, 2010: More Rearranging of Deck Chairs (with a follow up just recently here),

When Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980, the “conservative” president not only didn’t cut entire cabinet-level departments as promised, he added three new cabinet-level departments. After cutting taxes, a year later Reagan signed what was then to be America’s biggest tax increase. Reagan also signed one deficit-laden budget after another, and during Reagan’s presidency, the National Debt skyrocketed along with all the regulations and bureaucracy he promised to cut.

Following the 1994 “Republican Revolution,” the federal government continued to grow out of control, and, after 2000, the younger President George W. Bush’s “compassionate conservatism” – i.e. more socialist redistribution of wealth schemes – and expanding the military industrial complex only fed Leviathan much more.

Then, in November of 2010, mainly because of the passage of ObamaCare the voters elected many new Republicans to Congress. Some of the candidates pledged to repeal the Affordable (sic) Care Act, a.k.a. ObamaCare.

Well, it’s 2014 now, and have they repealed ObamaCare?

However, we do have a proposal now by three U.S. senators to “repeal and replace” ObamaCare.

Ooooh, another Republican plan to replace socialism and fascism with fascism and socialism.

Senators Richard Burr, Orrin Hatch and Tom Coburn present several aspects of their own version of government-controlled medical care. But it is not a free market health care plan. It just changes a few aspects to make it a little less intrusive, a little less socialist on the surface but the government still controls things by telling individuals and businesses what they may or may not do.

You see, with the unrealistic conservatives, Republicans and “libertarians,” political compromise is the solution. Not the solution to better medical care, just the solution to help politicians get themselves reelected. Sadly, the naive and the gullible just can’t seem able to get that.

So, as far as this new Republican plan to replace ObamaCare with the same thing but with the deck chairs rearranged, many conservative and Republican sheeple are all for it. For example, the clueless conservatives of the New York Post editorial board conclude, “GOP candidates heading into their campaigns this fall now have a genuine alternative that would offer universal ­coverage.”

“Universal coverage”? Is that even possible? Who the hell but socialists and communists talks about “universal coverage”? (Is there even universal coverage in Cuba? In Venezuela? England? Was there in the old Soviet Union?)

Avik Roy of Forbes says this is the “most credible plan yet,” when no, it is NOT the “most credible plan.” The most credible plan is to get the government out of medical care completely! Roy also says that this new Republican plan raises taxes, and “that’s a good thing.” Doh!

And there’s a congressman from Georgia who is running for the U.S. Senate, and he says that his background as a physician gives him credibility in going on to help to repeal ObamaCare. Yeah, that attitude sure helped with Sen. Bill Frist, MD. And what has Rand Paul, MD done? Nuttin’!

Laurence Vance explains the Republicans’ history of support for government-controlled medical care. Vance concludes by noting that the real constitutional alternative to government health care is medical freedom. And that’s it.

And Jacob Hornberger explains even more specifically what a genuine free market in medical care would be. That means repealing ALL the socialist and fascist governmental intrusions into the lives of the people. (And such repeals would apply in every other area in which these greedy, corrupt government bureaucrats intrude themselves. Everything!)

But worse, and more depressing is that this new RepublicanCare is dependent on 2014 elections, or more likely dependent on 2016 elections. By that time, America will already be a full third world country. Get rid of damn ObamaCare NOW, for crying out loud!

So, as we saw from the 2010 elections, elections don’t matter. And legislation doesn’t matter. It’s all a scam.

Hmmm. By the way, let’s take a look at the aforementioned U.S. Senators Burr, Hatch and Coburn campaign finances for 2009-2014 as given by OpenSecrets.org:

Not that any of that means anything. So people need to face it that these elections really are meaningless.

As Murray Rothbard observed,

…first, left-liberals, in power, make a Great Leap Forward toward collectivism; then, when, in the course of the political cycle, four or eight years later, conservatives come to power, they of course are horrified at the very idea of repealing anything; they simply slow down the rate of growth of statism, consolidating the previous gains of the Left, and providing a bit of R&R for the next liberal Great Leap Forward….

And these elections are meaningless because when we can dig up one or two “good” people who mean well, when they get in there to “repeal” stuff, they will not really repeal anything. They get addicted to the power that such governmental authority gives them. They now get to tell people what to do, and have their orders enforced by armed goons, and they love it. Better than drugs.

I hope that soon people will really see what a sham central planning and federalism are. The whole scheme is really a criminal scheme in which some people use the armed power of the State to take from others, and that’s it! And it is an apparatus with which the psychopaths amongst us satisfy their cravings for power and control over others. If you want to believe otherwise, then I guess you prefer to be gullible.

Earlier Post on Mob Violence, Riots and Decentralization

I posted this in March of 2011 and thought it might have some relevance today in the difficult times we are having in Amerika.

March 1, 2011

Our Choice: More Government Intrusions and Mob Violence, Riots and Looting; or Decentralization and Freedom.

I don’t know how much more I can stand all this doom and gloom regarding the future, and the economic outlook. Americans’ foolish continued dependence on the centralized federal Leviathan is what’s going to cause actual economic collapse, rioting and looting, social unrest and violence. The answer as far as preventing all that is staring us right in the face, and that is freedom, particularly just getting rid of the federal government.

The Anti-Federalists were right in that not only does having a centralized bureaucracy not help the society in any way, but inevitably, it can and will lead to (and is leading to) totalitarianism. That is what we already have now, but there are too many people, most of whom spend too much time sitting in front of the TV continuing their hypnosis or playing with their little texting/gaming gadgets, who just have this blind faith in the State no matter how bad it is, no matter how criminal it is, regardless of the State’s increasingly severe abuse of the people’s liberty and property. But why must we in the minority, who recognize the true inherently evil destructive behaviors and history of the State, suffer and be abused and enslaved because so many in the majority amongst the population are masochists?

The Economic Collapse Blog had a post on the various incidents recently of “mob robberies” and rioting and looting, as well as brawls in restaurants and retail areas during the holiday season. It doesn’t even appear that these examples have anything to do with the economic recession/depression or unemployment, just that they are examples of the general moral decline and reduced respect for the rights of others in America. In my opinion, that is all thanks to the growth of government, the criminality of the government and how so many people have enriched themselves via the powers of the State, from the big banksters, the defense contractors of the military-industrial-complex, to the professional politicians and bureaucrats (such as Barney Frank, Dick Cheney, etc.) who have never produced anything of actual value to others and who could never actually survive in a world based on totally voluntary contracts and without being parasites of the State.

The Economic Collapse Blog notes that “Frustration and anger are rising from coast to coast and millions of Americans are losing faith in the system.  The thin veneer of civilization which we all take for granted is already starting to disappear.  So what is going to happen when the economy collapses?  As our economic system fails, mob robberies and rampant looting are only going to become more common.”

“Losing faith in the system”? What system? Do you mean faith in a system of freedom, private property and individual liberty? Well, we haven’t had that in America. We have had State control of everything. People have had faith in the government — the State — to do this, that, and the other thing. But because of its compulsory and monopolistic nature, government has done nothing but screw up this, that and the other thing, actually everything it gets its grubby paws on, everything! Especially the federal government. How stupid the Founders were to cave to those who wanted a centralized bureaucracy with actual power!

One of the videos the Economic Collapse Blog included on that post was from the Rodney King riots, nearly 20 years ago. And that wasn’t really even to do with economic troubles, only racial troubles, in which the racist white police department got away with beating a black man. That in and of itself is disgusting, but nothing justifies going and destroying other people’s property, robbing people and looting stores and injuring and murdering people.

Of course, if neighborhood policing were not an activity monopolized by the State, and there were competing policing firms all held accountable under the Rule of Law, then none of that kind of crap would happen, and security agents would not get away with beating presumably innocent people. Only under a system of monopoly can that happen, because monopoly is inherently corrupting.

Now, regarding the economic collapse that the doom-and-gloomers are predicting, the Activist Post blog has this post on how the economic collapse is deliberately designed and is so designed in order to “reduce the population.” I think that’s a bit much, and that the current economic recession/depression is not designed by any one individual, group or organization, but, like the Great Depression, it is occurring through various situations including mostly the incompetence and the “fatal conceit” of government officials. Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke are control freaks, and they have been given huge compulsory powers as agents of a State-run bureaucracy, the Federal Reserve. But as with the usual results of other compulsory State bureaucracies, everything they do results in the opposite of what they intend. They and their fellow statist nincompoops in Washington live in a total fantasy world. “They’re out there,” as Jerry Williams used to say.

The real answer, and how to prevent further economic collapse and to reverse what is happening, is freedom. Even just decentralizing America by abolishing the federal government completely, abolishing all its monopolies especially in territorial protection and the production and issuance of currency, will free up the country a great deal. If each state had its individual independence and sovereignty as is the inherent right of any people within any given territory (the right to not be compelled to be dependent on any centralized federal bureaucracy), then, if the people of any given state did not like the intrusions of their own individual state government, then they can abolish the state government as well, and let each city and town have its own independence and sovereignty as well.

The more decentralized a territory, the more free and independent the people are.

Hans-Hermann Hoppe addressed these ideas in his great book, Democracy: The God That Failed. Prof. Hoppe noted in that book that, given the choice (not that we have the choice right now), a society with many smaller states is preferable — and certainly freer and more prosperous — than a society of one centralized State, i.e. the federal authoritarian government dictatorship that we have now. Prof. Hoppe made this point in this interview.

It is said, for example by the bureaucrats of the European Union in Brussels, that economic prosperity has increased dramatically with increased political unification. In reality, however, political integration (centralisation) and economic (market) integration are two completely different phenomena. Political integration involves the territorial expansion of a state’s powers of taxation and property regulation. Economic integration is the extension of the interpersonal and interregional division of labour and market participation. In general, the smaller a country and its internal markets the more likely it is that it will opt for free trade.

I think that a world consisting of tens of thousands of distinct countries, regions and cantons, and hundreds of thousands of independent free cities such as the present-day “oddities” of Monaco, Andorra, San Marino, Liechtenstein, Hong Kong, and Singapore, would be a world of unprecedented prosperity, economic growth, and cultural advancement.

One of the economically most prosperous nations however is the United States, which is a big country.

Yes, in fact there is no direct relationship between territorial size and economic prosperity. Switzerland and Albania are both small countries, while the U.S. and the former Soviet Union are large. However, there is a highly important indirect relationship. Smallness contributes to moderation. In principle, all governments are counterproductive in taxing and regulating private property owners and market income earners. A small government, however, has many close neighbours. If it taxes and regulates its own subjects visibly more than its neighbours it is bound to suffer because people will “vote with their feet”: they will leave to live and work elsewhere. And they need not go far to do so….

It is assumed that larger political units – and ultimately a single world government – imply wider markets and hence increased wealth. However, this is untrue. The larger the territories the lower a government’s incentive to continue its domestic liberalism will be because people will lose the possibility of voting with their feet. Throughout the entire period of European and, indeed, global unification we have witnessed a steady and dramatic growth of government power, taxation and regulatory expropriation. In the light of social and economic theory and history a very strong case can be made for secession…

Here is a link to the introduction to Hans Hoppe’s Democracy: The God That Failed.

In a decentralized U.S. sans federal government, if some people of a particular state don’t like the intrusions and rules of that state, they can vote with their feet, certainly much more easily than Americans can do presently if we don’t like the way our federal totalitarian regime is ruining our whole country. For most people, it is difficult or impossible to vote with our feet and leave America.

But why should anyone have to leave America because they don’t like State violence and trespassing into their private lives and property, and because they don’t like their labor being enslaved by parasitic, professional politicians and their flunkies who don’t want to make their own way in life? Why should anyone have to leave America because the federal government is destroying the country?

And why must we endure the abuse and tyranny that the federal government has been causing us, either directly by its intrusive and invasive policies, or by the increasing violence that its policies have wrought in America? That shouldn’t be the case, so, let’s get rid of the federal government before its intrusions kill us all.

Let the Swamp Creatures Destroy Themselves, We Can Dismiss D.C. Forever

In a House Judiciary Committee hearing this week in Washington, lawbreakers inquisitioned AG William Barr, especially the Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (Chinese phone books and all). The Democrat lawbreakers questioned Barr relentlessly, and would immediately interrupt him as he began his answers.

Those snotty little brats are really just apparatchiks and loyalists to “The Party” and to power, certainly not to the concepts of “question and answer,” honest discussion of the issues and open debate, and transparency in government.

And they certainly are not friends of freedom of speech, but the opposite of that: censorship. They so much do not want Barr to get his side of the story out there that they would prefer only their own views be heard, and no one else’s.

However, I couldn’t care less that they gave poor old William Barr a hard time, harassing him and humiliating him, because Barr is just another Swamp creature and police statist, drug warrior, national security state apparatchik. So to hell with him as far as I’m concerned.

And the same thing two years ago with Brett Kavanaugh, Barr’s fellow Swamp creature, rubber-stamper of the police state and the fascist drug war. With Kavanaugh I could hardly have cared less that the Democrat Politburo and “social justice” fabricators made stuff up and launched false accusations toward him.

Barr is no better. Besides his anti-immigration policies, Barr was a CIA goon for 4 years, and imposed policies of going into other countries to apprehend suspects in fascist drug laws that shouldn’t exist. Barr and his daughter the DOJ’s drug commissar Mary Daly believe that drug usage, production and sales are criminal matters. People buying, selling, possessing or using certain drugs prohibited by the Rulers are criminals to them. (Unfortunately a lot of Amerikan fascists agree with them.)

Additionally, the Swamp creature police statist William Barr ia against reforming the criminal justice (sic) sentencing system. He wrote: “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.”

“Proactive law enforcement measures” means “Pre-Crime,” that is, when government bureaucrats attempt to predict that someone might commit some crime at some point. Perhaps we should call him Mr. Totalitarian?

In my view, all these people in Washington are loathsome Swamp creatures. They are not fans of property rights, the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution they were all sworn to protect and defend.

And regarding William Barr and U.S. attorney John Durham’s alleged “investigation” of CIA-FBI-DOJ crusade to get Donald Trump including fake dossiers and illegal FISA spying abuses, I am not holding my breath. In the end, Swamp creatures stick up for each other, and sweep each other’s crimes under the rug. They then go on to attend the same cocktail parties, yacht cruises and bubble baths in Washington.

And do you think the current FBI director Chris Wray is going to help at all in the alleged “investigation”? After Way pushed to withhold exculpatory evidence in the Mike Flynn case?

Anyway, as I’ve been saying for years, the best solution to “draining the Swamp” is decentralization. Dissolve the U.S. government completely. I very much recommend Lew Rockwell’s 30 Day Plan as the first and necessary step. And Murray Rothbard offered some tips on how and how not to desocialize.

We can start with 50 independent states (or “nation-states” if you prefer). This way the people have the power to “vote with their feet,” a power which sadly we do not have now. And when that is achieved the states can further decentralize themselves. No more government central planning, no more dysfunctional dependence on central planners for security.

75% of Americans Believe We Will Never Return to “Normal”

Big League Politics reports on a new study finding that 75% of Americans believe that life in Amerika will never return to what used to be considered “normal” — or, back to pre-scamdemic times.

The survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by OnePoll shows that the media-generated fear has resonated severely with the masses. 59 percent of respondents are too afraid to go back to their workplace with others, and 36 percent do not believe they will ever be able to return to a shared workspace without putting themselves or loved ones in danger. 63 percent believe their job will never be the same and anticipate working from home for at least the rest of the year.

Additionally, 75 percent feel that handshakes will no longer be customary in society due to the lasting fears from the pandemic. 41 percent hope for a contact-free workplace where hugs and physical contact are barred when they return. 38 percent want physical offices permanently removed and replaced with remote work on a lasting basis. 53 percent are nostalgic for the good old days when people weren’t forcibly masked while the rest have seemingly become accustomed to the new Orwellian normal.

You see what terrorists our governors, mayors, “public health” Mengeles and media propagandists are?

And those 75% polled are right. Things will not return to “normal.” Unless the bureaucrats in charge decide to undo their fascist orders and central-planning destruction of businesses and the whole country.

But, it looks like they are hellbent on keeping the charade and scam going.

Why are the governors and other bureaucrats so desperate to destroy our society? Like Gov. Charlie Baker that I mentioned the other day. These people are part of the anti-productivity crowd, just like the communists in academia and “Black Lives Matter” movement.

Most of the bureaucrats MUST know that the “virus” is only as serious in general as the seasonal flu. They MUST know that. (Although the retards among them might not know that, such as Cuomo and Duh Blasio for example. But we know that they are probably communists so they don’t care that they are destroying society.)

I keep going back and forth between calling all these horrible people fascists and communists. There’s not much difference, believe me.

And then we have those 150 “health professionals” who have written a letter to “America’s decision makers,” demanding that we not only not return to normal, but return to more lockdowns, a national lockdown in Amerika. They want more inaccurate testing and intrusive contact tracing stasi. Talk about fanatically anti-productivity. The “scientists” include the crazed nutjob Ezekiel Emanuel, the former Obama administration health policy flunky.

They are “health professionals”? Do they not know about the CDC and state “public health” ministers lying about the COVID death numbers? Do they not know about the 50%-plus false positives in the testing results, or that dishonest state bureaucrats have been ignoring negative test results and only reporting positive cases, or that “cases” used to mean people who had symptoms and tested positive for COVID but now “cases” means anyone who tested positive regardless of whether one has symptoms? They are not “health professionals” or “scientists,” they are either ignorant morons or politically motivated loony-tunes crackpot kooks and extremely dishonest and shady characters (like the aforementioned bureaucrats).

And this is all coinciding with the “Black Lives Matter” violence, arson, assaults, and looting that is being permitted, approved of and praised by all those city police chiefs, mayors, governors who obviously want to see society destroyed.

So, either we continue with the lockdowns, the masks that symbolize “Shut up and obey!” and the violence in the cities that will go into the suburbs, or we end ALL lockdowns, restrictions that are based on a lie and a scamdemic, and take off the masks so people can breathe again and get their necessary oxygen so their brains don’t continue to decay even further, and let everyone get back to normal immediately. Resume ALL sporting events with full stadium spectator capacity, resume symphony concerts and other musical venues, and if people feel uncomfortable going to those things, then DON’T GO!

And let people defend themselves and their property from the criminal thugs, marauders, brutes, arsonists and murders (the city street rioters as well as those evil government bureaucrats).

If we don’t undo immediately ALL the Twilight Zone fascist policies that are destroying society, it will be completely destroyed, it’s happening before our very eyes. It’s not just becoming a communist dictatorship with state-worship fanatical crusades that accompany communist takeovers, but it’s going to be a society of total chaos, violence and bloodshed. Just like pre-Enlightenment times, and just like the 20th Century.

It is the “Dark Ages” that these monsters — from governors and “public health” bureaucrats to the other terrorists — seem to want.

COVID Fascists Aiding and Abetting Marxist Lives Matter Against Civilized Culture

Now that I’m seeing more info on the classical music venues continuing to be canceled and for no good reason, it is becoming more clear to me how the “Black Lives Matter”/antifa vs. civilized life is closely linked to the COVID situation and associated fascism.

The fascists ordering businesses closed down and ruining the economy and causing unemployment and unproductivity are no different and no better than the communists and Marxists burning down businesses or looting from the ones still in existence.

The official organization “Black Lives Matter” itself and its little robot followers do not care about all black lives. Why don’t they scream about the black lives being murdered by other black people especially in the cities, such as Chicago? (Brainwashed loony-tunes call it “racist” to point that out, because they are not rational. But don’t tell them I said that.)

And then if someone says, “All lives matter,” they are also called “racists,” and in some cases fired from a job. That is how irrational and hypocritical these social movements are.

They do not believe in “inclusion,” that’s for sure.

If it’s about “police brutality,” then they should look into de-monopolizing community policing away from government control. Not the kind of criminal racket that thugs have set up in Seattle, but an unorganized system of freedom in which whoever wants to patrol neighborhoods can do so. Nobody is above the law. But when government has a monopoly on community policing and security, those government “officials” are above the law, because they ARE the law. Only obedient sheeple would promote that government monopoly system in an otherwise free society.

But this would mean that because everyone has a right to defend oneself from the wanton aggression and violence of others like rioters and looters and arsonists, the free society would not infringe on the right of the good people to keep and bear arms.

And it’s not even about “racism,” this hypocritical, irrational movement. It is not about “black lives.” It’s about power and control. The Marxist youngins are being brainwashed to believe that they are entitled to other people’s wealth and earnings, and that they have a “right” to take stuff from others. For whatever reason, whatever made-up reason.

Just listen to the brainwashed True Believers.

The brainwashed youngins believe that they are justified in committing acts of violence, looting, and burning down businesses. They believe they have a “right” to steal away the livelihoods of entrepreneurs who spent a lifetime building such livelihoods.

I guess you would have to be brainwashed to really believe that you have a “right” to steal from (i.e. enslave) some guy or gal who never harmed anyone, and in fact someone who employs young black people.

The rioters, marauders, looters, thugs, arsonists and barbarians in Minneapolis and other cities remind me of the criminal psychopaths of the U.S. military invading and bombing and destroying Iraq in the early 1990s, a good 10 years prior to 9/11. They are brainwashed, too, but with a slightly different ideology. The militarist sheeple psychos of the U.S. military are brainwashed to believe that the U.S. government rules the rest of the world and has a “right” to criminally invade and bomb other countries with impunity, steal their wealth and natural resources and murder millions of foreigners.

In 1991 the crazed criminals of the U.S. military intentionally bombed Iraqi civilian water and sewage treatment centers and caused the Iraqi people to have to use untreated water which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocents. Psychopath President George H.W. Bush started that war of aggression and imposed those sanctions and no-fly zones for no good reason.

The entitled American political class and all its obedient underlings and followers having the power to enslave the rest of the world, and enslave the workers and producers of their own society, is an ideology shared by both the U.S. militarists and America Firsters, and the communist-Marxist thug psychopaths who are burning down whole cities.

And regarding those communist-Marxist thug psychopaths, the cultural stuff goes with all this. Tearing down statues and burning down historic buildings is just as ISIS would do.

Centuries ago, much of the world was barbaric. The “Enlightenment” period developed.

The concepts of individual freedom, individual rights and individual dignity were becoming prominent. Those concepts included freedom of voluntary association, voluntary contracts and voluntary trade, the recognition of property rights, including the property right of the individual in one’s person and labor. The freedom of self-ownership.

While chattel slavery was ending peacefully all over the world, many people still really believe that the “Civil War” “ended slavery.” Well, “slavery” actually did continue 50 years later with the imposition of the income tax in Amerika. The government is the slave master, in which the obedient sheeple must do a certain amount of labor, involuntarily, to serve the master in Washington, state capitols and City Halls. And that’s basically what we have now.

The Marxist movement we have now, “Steal from the honest working folk, steal from the productive, i.e. enslave the productive,” is not that different from the political class all across Amerika. The Heritage Foundation, National Review, The New York Times, The DNC and the RNC are no different. Do those influential organizations ever call for the elimination of the income tax-theft and the IRS? Do they ever call for the most evil organized crime racket ever, the U.S. government, to be decentralized? Of course not. They thrive on tax-redistributionism just as the Soviet rulers thrived on living off the labor of the workers and producers.

In the ongoing scamdemic, the brain-dead government bureaucrat rulers such as governors and mayors have ordered businesses shut down to try to put a stop to whatever economic progress was happening (that Trump’s tax cuts and deregulation contributed to). Unemployment was way down including and especially among black people and other minorities and women. The Marxists and communists (a.k.a. “socialists”) would have none of that.

First, seeing that many more black people being employed and more able to provide for themselves went against the “Whitey is keeping black people locked out of the economy” narrative.

And second, the economy showing just how most of the population benefits from a more freed market was refuting the Marxists’ brainwashed beliefs in the “centrally-planned Almighty Government being the caretaker of the people” crapola. (Even though they can just look at Soviet Union, Cuba, North Korea, and worse, the U.K., to see that communism “socialism” doesn’t actually work in practice, but brainwashed morons choose not to do that.)

I think the Marxism ideology that the modern “revolutionaries” seem to want to implement is not to do with State worship, because we already have State worship in Amerika. It’s to do with people wanting to have a system in place that allows them to get away with wanton aggression and violence against others. A criminal, violent society, in other words.

And the cultural artifacts being torn down now. With the COVID scamdemic we have music cancellations, especially classical music, which unfortunately is very “historical” and represents the human progress that was made especially since the “Enlightenment,” as well as being great music. Maybe that’s why the government schools have been dropping classical music references from their music programs, and might be another explanation why the symphony orchestras don’t seem to have that many black musicians. It’s not because the musical organizations are “exclusionary,” or racist. The schools prefer to encourage cRAP music along with rock music which isn’t nearly as inventive, intellectual, or emotionally wide-ranging as classical music.

Yes, “cRAP” music. It is crap, quite frankly. Nothing racist about that. The “Rap culture” (if I may call it that) includes a lot of utterances of the “N word,” which is encouraged by this nasty, thuggish, culture that promotes violence against innocents (like the Bushes and Clintons and their fellow psychopaths Obama and Trump, and all points between and their wars overseas and war on drugs, etc.). Yet, when a college professor reads Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail out loud in class, that includes the “N word” (that King wrote in the letter himself, HE is saying it, not the professor), that professor gets investigated by the university! This kind of irrational, hypocritical crap is going on ALL the time now!

But with the “Black Lives Matter”/antifa criminality, hypocrisy, Marxism and brainwashed loony-tunes taking down historical artifacts, the COVID fascists are causing various classical artistic organizations to be cancelling whole seasons. And whatever the venues can attempt to save, they are trying to implement “social distancing” measures, which in some venues is impossible. So, some of them or many of them will go bankrupt. And this might very well be on purpose. Without the New York Philharmonic and the Met, how will New York residents expose their children to great music that goes back centuries? And in every other city?

And with the COVID scamdemic as the excuse, those of us who are not bamboozled by the mainstream media, know that all this COVID fascism CRAP is for no good reason. The masks which are harmful to your health, the “social distancing” lunacy, hand sanitizer to ruin your skin,  the restaurants having to seat people 18 yards apart. It’s for NO GOOD REASON! And the “stay-in” orders by fascist governors and mayors have been causing more harm than good.

The best thing for our society is decentraliztion, getting rid of Washington, D.C. completely, at the very least. (And restoring the right of the people to keep and bear arms, of course.)

Current Civil War-Era Hysteria Reminds Me of Interview of Tom Woods by a Zombie

With all the hysteria now over historic artifacts such as from the Confederacy or statues or military bases named after “Confederate generals,” I was reminded of Tom Woods’s “Interview with a Zombie,” in which the “Zombie” represents the typical brainwashed “Social Justice Warrior” who has been told without any evidence that “America is a racist country,” that keeping historic artifacts or statues in place is “racist,” and especially that advocating “Nullification” (The title of Tom Woods’s book that was published at that time) is “racist.” This Interview with a Zombie was 10 years ago this month, apparently, and as we see today nothing has changed. The Zombie could very well be anyone from CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, etc. So, I thought I would repost this video now.
