In USSA, the Inmates Are Running the Asylum

Because of coronavirus COVID-19 panic and hysteria, public officials and media are intentionally exaggerating the severity of the pandemic, governors are ordering “non-essential” businesses to be shut down and ordering or “advising” all “non-essential” people to stay home and not go out anywhere.

This situation is now being called the “new normal,” which is not normal, but a new abnormal.

It’s literally craziness now in USSA, United Soviet States of Amerika.

Crazy activists are exploiting the hype and hysteria, and “liberal” governors are ordering businesses shut down and people out of work, in order to ram through another $2 trillion (or $6 trillion?) “stimulus” i.e. heist, as they insert all their little goodies and fascist takeovers, crony corporate bailouts, with paid family leave and sick leave and extended unemployment insurance and more. And they have their useful idiots Donald Trump and the Republicans going along with this new socialist paradise. Hooray!

But instead of more Washington stealing, why not repeal things and dismantle all the unconstitutional garbage in Washington? Like abolishing the IRS and the income tax and letting people keep and do what they want with their own money? No? Too radical?

And now we have people acting like insane lunatics, stores placing tapes on the floor 6 feet apart with “stand here” written on them, people with masks that will not have that much of a preventive effect, people frantically hoarding toilet paper and hand sanitizer for no good reason, and people calling 911 who are not having an emergency and people flooding the hospitals because they have a cold but are not having difficulty breathing.

So the inmates are running the asylum now. All this is crazy stuff. And I thought the irrational college snowflakes were bad. And the LGBT stuff and telling us that there are more than two genders. All nuts. But NOW…

But now…the stock traders who hate Trump have been crashing the stocks and are trying to sink the economy and cause a recession or possibly a depression because they pathologically want to see Trump lose his reelection. That’s how sick so many people are now. Bill Maher and his ilk have been saying they hoped for a recession for those reasons, and are now getting what they wanted.

The activists also seem to be trying to overwhelm the healthcare system as a means toward imposing the Soviet medical system they dream about.

The “officials,” like the drooling Hillary supporter “Dr.” Anthony Fauci, are saying they want to “save lives,” as are the fascist governors who order businesses shut down. But all the STRESS and ANXIETY, and the worry that the governors and other “officials” are inflicting will probably cause more heart attacks and strokes, and other actual illnesses, in addition to the financial losses these corrupt gangsters are causing.

Keeping people in isolation causes extra stress, in addition to their new worries and anxiety. If anyone really does have a heart attack or stroke or other serious medical illness because of Bill Maher and these nazi politicians, I really hope someone sues them! And I mean personally sue Gov. Gavin Nuisance and Cuomo, and others. They will be personally responsible for those illnesses, in my view.

And notice that the governors ordering businesses closed are “LIBERAL” governors! So what they really are is anti-capitalist, and anti-free market, as they are part of the crowd who hates and resents those who succeed and who can make a profit from the consumers who voluntarily choose to patronize those successful businesses!

The loony-tunes mayor of Los Angeles is now threatening businesses who stay open with shutting off their water and power! He is evil, just like Coomo and Nuisance. But I am still hoping to hear about more dissidents disobeying these “authorities,” and people living their lives as they have a right to do.

These government people are power-mad criminals!

And there are a lot of sheeple out there who support all the restrictions, really believing that such fascism will “save lives.” There are sheeple reporting on those who have gatherings of more than 10 people. The New Stasi, as well as the New Abnormal.

Your neighborhood brownshirts and stasi will turn you in for continuing to live a life. As with the “If You See Something, Say Something” crusade, these sheeple will comply with such requests to turn in their neighbors because this is finally something that will make them feel important.

Now, you say you want to prevent the spread of coronavirus COVID-19 to prevent people from getting sick and people dying, and that’s why the panic and hysteria and shutting down everyday life and commerce. But why aren’t people acting this way because of the regular seasonal flu?

So far, 22,000 Americans have already died from the flu this season, with 300,000 worldwide, compared to 784 U.S. deaths from COVID-19, with 19,000 deaths worldwide!

Why aren’t people panicking over THAT? Why aren’t we closing everything down and imposing home imprisonment onto innocent people to protect them from getting the flu?

And what about car crashes? In the U.S., 37,000 people died in motor vehicle crashes in 2018. If the governors are really sincere about saving lives, they would make people stop driving on the roads and highways. THAT will save lives! But isn’t that ABSURD? So, obviously, ordering businesses closed, ordering people to lose their jobs and people to stay home like it’s Ebola or the Plague, when it’s just a bad flu that’s going around, is just as absurd! (IF you believe those politicians’ sincerity, which I don’t.)

And now in the news they’re saying that younger people are dying of coronavirus COVID-19, like ages 18-49, not just the elderly and already sick people. And I would like to know some important statistics, such as how many of the COVID-19 victims smoke or are ex-smokers, including marijuana smokers, and how many have asthma, lung disease or other respiratory illnesses? How many of these young people are vapers? That’s all the rage now in teens and young adults. But vaping has also been sending people to the hospitals. All those behaviors compromise one’s lungs and respiratory system.

And, when we hear about the numbers of “cases” skyrocketing, are the medical and government “officials” clarifying that they refer to laboratory-confirmed cases, or “presumed” cases or “suspected” cases? Are the 784 COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. and 19,000 worldwide really laboratory-confirmed? How accurate are the tests that are being rushed to medical facilities? How do we know there aren’t false positives, and that people might actually have the seasonal flu?

Do any of the media ever ask the “officials” those questions to get 100% definite clarification?

Sorry, but all the craziness, and fascism and political corruption and media dishonesty are infuriating!

And now, Sen. Amy Klawbutcher revealed that her husband has contracted the COVID-19 and “has suffered from a bleeding cough and dangerously low oxygen levels,” and is being treated. He “was healthy and had no pre-existing health conditions,” supposedly. But I want to know if he is a smoker or ex-smoker. Or if he is an ex-smoker, did he smoke heavily when he was younger? Was he a pothead? All that stuff will weaken one’s lungs and respiratory system and cause long-term respiratory problems or weakness. So, I would like to know that, if Frau Klawbutcher would like to tell us. And by the way, Sen. Upchuck Schumer sounds like he’s a smoker. Is he? Is he more vulnerable to COVID-19? (Not that I care.)

I know, I know, I shouldn’t make fun of Schumer, or Amy Klawbutcher, someone at a time like this whose husband is in poor health. But Amy Klawbutcher is a bloodthirsty neocon warmonger who never met a regime-change war she didn’t like. And she throws things at people. She is ghastly. (You see, most politicians are loathsome and icky. They just are.)

And also, it’s good that Amy dropped out of the presidential race, but she endorsed the Alzheimer’s patient, Joe Biden, as did several other former candidates, including Kamala Harris, Fido O’Rourke, Mike Bloomberg, and Mayor Pete Nuttygieg. And, of all people, Tulsi Gabtard has endorsed the Alzheimer’s patient.

Now, why would Tulsi Gabbard endorse Biden? So with all those others it already sounded suspicious. And now Tulsi? But Tulsi actually resigned her position as Vice Chair of the DNC in 2016 in order to support Bernie Sanders! So why isn’t she supporting Sanders this time around?

In my view, Tulsi and all those others would have to have been literally threatened or blackmailed to give their support for someone who clearly has Alzheimer’s. I can’t believe that TPTB at the DNC actually want Biden to be their nominee for President. So, obviously whether or not he “wins” the fixed and rigged primary campaign for the nomination, the DNC controllers will replace him with Hillary. In fact, I think that Hillary is going to be their nominee for a second time around. Doh!

But I digress. And it is not far-fetched to suggest that the media and Democrats and leftist people have been intentionally over-hyping the COVID-19 pandemic to cause the markets to crash, cause a recession, with “liberal” governors ORDERING businesses shut and ORDERING people to stay in their homes, because they viscerally HATE Donald Trump and droolingly want to see him lose this election. It is not too far-fetched, given their past. We know they lied and made up stuff about Brett Kavanaugh (who shouldn’t be a judge, but that’s a different discussion), they lied and made up the Russia-collusions scheme, and they lied and made up the Ukraine stuff for an impeachment farce. We know they support killing babies after they are born, that is how fanatical they are. So, as much as I loathe and detest Rethuglicans, their wars overseas, their wars on drugs, immigration and private property, the Democrats are literally crazy now. Literally. They would crash the entire financial system to not only see Trump lose his reelection, but as a means to implement their full socialist paradise, and shove it down all our throats.

The Impeachment “Whistleblower” Is Really Just a “Propagandist”

U.S. Chief Bureaucrat John Roberts has been censoring Sen. Rand Paul’s questions for House managers in the Senate impeachment trial of The Donald. For questioning, the senators submit written questions to the Chief Bureaucrat who presides over the trial. Anyway, given what a swamp creature Roberts is, and what a turncoat Roberts was in his changing his vote toward approval of ObamaCare, that he would censor questions in favor of sweeping government criminality under the rug is no big surprise.

So Paul tweeted his Roberts-censored question thus: “Are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while at the National Security Council together, and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal house impeachment proceedings.”

Paul further clarified in the tweets: “My question is not about a “whistleblower” as I have no independent information on his identity. My question is about the actions of known Obama partisans within the NSC and House staff and how they are reported to have conspired before impeachment proceedings had even begun.

Some people are saying that outing a whistleblower could compromise his job security or safety. But the alleged “whislteblower” in this case who started this whole fiasco later last year is not a whistleblower. He did not expose “waste, fraud or abuse” in his working behind the scenes with Adam Schiff, the day after the controversial Trump-Ukraine phone call, to get this impeachment going. In fact, the alleged “whistleblower” began in his crusade against Trump soon after Trump was inaugurated.

According to WikiSpooks, Eric Ciaramella was a CIA apparatchik who became a White House staffer thanks to former Trump National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, and had been a “Susan Rice protégé.” (Hmm, that sounds good. I sure hope he had no involvement in Rice’s unmasking the names of Trump flunkies who were under illegal surveillance! Doh!) More info from Heavy.com.

The “whistleblower” who reported second-hand or third-hand hearsay information regarding that Trump-Ukraine phone call to get this impeachment fiasco going, was a Trump-hater, one of many. But I’m sure you can take any phone conversation and blow any statement out of proportion, such as in the specific phone call the bureaucrats chose to blow out of proportion for impeachment.

And I don’t think that Trump knew in July of 2019 that Joe Biden would be his Democrat opponent a year later in 2020. So it seems to me that to suggest that Trump was thinking of Biden in that phone call as his “political rival” has been an invalid argument, one that has been obediently repeated by the lapdogs of the mainstream media. Not that I’m particularly defending Trump, mind you. He is just another criminal bureaucrat, in my view.

So the “whislteblower” wasn’t really exposing “fraud, waste, or abuse” or incompetence or criminality in government, in the same way that Bradley Manning, now known as Chelsea Manning, did in 2010, or Edward Snowden, or Thomas Drake or John Kiriakou have done.

No, the “whistleblower” was taking second hand and hearsay information as propaganda and using it in cahoots with swamp creatures in Congress to impeach a President they just don’t like. So, really the “whistleblower” isn’t actually a whistleblower, or even just a “leaker,” but a propagandist.

And at the beginning of the House impeachment inquiry even further propaganda oozed from Adam Schiff in his reading a made-up version of the transcript of the Trump-Ukraine phone call, making Trump sound like a gangster. Now THAT’s propaganda! Quite different from the actual transcript of the phone call. (So, did the CIA flunky “whistleblower” cahoot with Schiff in the changing of that transcript? Just askin’.)

And that is what swamp creatures such as those in the CIA are good at, propaganda and psy-ops. The swamp propagandists of the CIA and the rest of the national security state in Warshington including the FBI, NSA, the Pentacon, and DOJ didn’t like Trump’s “drain the swamp” rhetoric during the campaign, and they have been obsessed with getting him out of there. Literally obsessed. I have never seen this kind of pathological obsession with one single political figure on the part of national security apparatchiks, politicians and their news media government groupies.

Now, I can see why a CIA apparatchik and his fellow national security swampers don’t want to impeach Trump for his war crimes of authorizing drone strikes that kill mainly innocent civilians overseas, or for his ordering assassinations of foreigners without due process. Because as we know the goons and spooks of the national security apparatus approve of all those immoral interventions and criminal acts. But what is wrong with Democrats (who used to be known as “liberals”), when they couldn’t care less about Trump’s actual crimes, and instead make stuff up, such as this whole impeachment farce and Russiagate, as a way to try to get rid of him?

So, one good solution to all this, besides getting rid of Trump (and Pence et al.), is just abolishing the CIA, FBI, NSA, as well as the DHS, TSA, ICE and all the other totalitarian agencies in Warshington, and ending all tax-funded foreign aid, and closing down all those foreign U.S. military bases overseas and bringing all the U.S. military back to the U.S. (and even better, putting them in the private sector where they can actually be productive).

Piketty Will Capitalize on Documentary Film of His “Capital in the 21st Century”

Robert Wenzel says a new capitalist-hate movie is out, a documentary based on Thomas Piketty’s book, Capital in the 21st Century, which promoted not lifting up the poor but taking down the wealthy. The truth is that with socialists and leftists such as Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, it’s all about envy and covetousness, it’s not about liberating the people so they have the freedom to do what they want with their lives, their abilities, labor and capital.

I’m sure that the capitalist-haters of this new film will appreciate their own capitalist benefits when they receive earnings from the film!

Related to all this, I had written a short blog on this about 10 years ago. A response to Michael Moore’s mistaken label of the 2008 Wall Street Bailout as a “capitalist” act by government. (Of course, if I wrote that now I think I would word some of it a little differently).

In that post, I wrote,

Capitalism is an economic system which recognizes those individual rights and private property rights and the right of freedom of trade and commerce. By its very nature, a socialist system violates those rights of private property and voluntary free trade, and, since the means of production includes the people, it therefore is a system of collective ownership of individual people and thus erases any idea of “individual” rights.

In socialism, the individual is owned by the collective and thus does not have any right to one’s own life and liberty. In socialism, the individual is a slave of the collective and of the state; only in capitalism does freedom of the individual exist.

Michael Moore does not realize that it is because of capitalist freedom that he earns a big profit from his films, from the people who voluntarily pay money to see them. That is an example of voluntary free trade among individuals that the force of socialism destroys.

However, because our country is a “mixed economy,” with some capitalist free trade allowed by the government, and some socialist-forced government confiscation of private wealth and earnings, half of Mr. Moore’s earnings are forcibly confiscated by the armed force of government and then redistributed to Wall St. executives and Big Banks and Big Finance and Big Mortgage, etc. That’s Socialism, NOT “capitalism”!

Mr. Moore and others would benefit by reading Mises’s Human Action and Socialism, Rand’s Capitalism the Unknown Ideal, and Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom.

Kangaroo Impeachment Hearings in Soviet Amerika

The swamp creatures who attach themselves like barnacles to the Washington spigot cannot tolerate anyone overly critical of the D.C. swamp, and certainly not someone who promises to “Drain the Swamp.” So, this is why the elite establishment have been on a fanatical crusade to get rid of Donald Trump, any which way they can (even though he is one of them as far as I’m concerned).

And this involves just making things up, using the unconstitutional FISA spying apparatus, going after Trump’s tax records without any specific wrongdoing to suspect him of, and using a routine phone call with which to impeach him. The swamp creatures will do these things to anyone now in the future who goes against their beloved State.

So now, the Soviet show trial in the Kangaroo Kongress is continuing, with “legal experts” appearing in the House Judiciary Committee. We heard from propagandists otherwise known as “law professors” a.k.a. la-la professors who agree with the mantra repeated over and over and over that Trump violated some law or some constitutional article in his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

With today’s political correctness newspeak and government police and FBI doing whatever criminal act they want, “law” means whatever any government official says it means at any particular time.

Propagandists like the la-la professors Pamela Karlan and Noah Feldman slobberingly repeated the mantra of “Trump-phone-call-treason-guilty-GUILTY!!” over and over and over like the government groupies of the mainstream media so that more people will believe the lies.

We hear propaganda more and more every day, it seems. Not just with “Trump-Russia-Collusions” and now “Trump-Ukraine-Blackmail,” but in other crusades such as the vaccine crusade and the climate change crusade. “That’s been debunked,” and “the science is settled,” and all that crap. But I digress.

So, either those “professors” know that Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president was legal based on the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act and its amendments and are merely acting as government propagandists, or they don’t know the law, in which case they are ignoramuses.

Anyway, the law on foreign aid is irrelevant, because the U.S. government and its Presidents have not been following it. As James Bovard wrote recently, foreign aid makes corrupt countries more corrupt.

So “Professor” Karlan, the self-described “snarky, bisexual Jewish woman” who spoke exploitatively of Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron, has squandered thousands of dollars of her own money on political campaigns of the lying fraudsters Elizabeth Warren, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, so, should we really trust Snarky’s judgment as far as what is legal or constitutional and what isn’t?

Another “constitutional expert” at the impeachment hearing was la-la professor Noah Feldman, a Harvard professor (that doesn’t really mean anything anymore). So Marty Feldman, I mean, Noah Feldman, who is now on record as acting in cahoots with Mark Zuckerberg to censor conservatives and Trump supporters from Fakebook, was an adjunct senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, a CIA-associated group. So, this is yet another “liberal” combined with being associated with the CIA, just like John Brennan. Hooray!

You’ve probably heard about this on radio ditto-head shows, but Feldman has written favorably about Islamic Sharia law, including in his 2008 Council on Foreign Relations-associated book, The Fall and Rise of the Islamic State. In an op-ed, he wrote, “Today, when we invoke the harsh punishments prescribed by Shariah for a handful of offenses, we rarely acknowledge the high standards of proof necessary for their implementation.” Huh? (What planet is this guy on?)

In fact, another witness at this week’s kangaroo impeachment show trial, Professor Jonathan Turley, has repeatedly written extensive criticisms of the Islamic punishments of Sharia law in Saudi Arabia, Iran and elsewhere. What is wrong with this Feldman guy?

But guess what? House Speaker Pelosi is now admitting that this whole impeachment show trial is not about a phone call or about Ukraine, but about Russia. They are still obsessed with falsely imprisoning Trump based on cahooting with Russia, which Trump was totally exonerated of by the two-year Mueller investigation.

Nancy says, “All roads lead to Putin.” And that’s that.

It is ironic that Nancy Pelosi is lecturing reporter James Rosen about the Constitution, given her fellow Democrat Barack Obama’s going after Rosen just like all the other journalists Obama tyrannized during his regime. So, the swamp creatures go after those who try to expose their slimy disgusting rottenness, I think.

Does Pelosi really believe this Russia crap? She and her swamp creature fellows just want to exact revenge on Trump for not only daring to promise to “Drain the Swamp,” but for actually winning the 2016 election and beating Hillary Rotten Clinton, the one who “rightfully deserves to be the first woman President,” etc., etc., etc.

And much of this is about the Supreme Court as well. The abortion fanatics see that as their protector, protecting their “rite of passage” that women must exercise (the rite of killing their offspring, that is). And they’re getting especially worried now, because it seems that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is in a race to the end with Jimmy Carter. (Maybe those two can enter the Howie Carr Death Pool?)

Anyway, I don’t think I’ve seen a group of people, in Congress, media, Hollywood or the univer$ities and law $chools, as well as the Orwellian and Soviet-like culture in the loony tech world, who are soooo deranged, bananas and off their rockers about Trump and anyone who questions or speaks out against the statist quo and the loony-tunes PC garbage today. The crusaders are totally unhinged now.

And what exactly is causing all this craziness and corruption in Amerika? Government-controlled education? Centralization of power? I have no idea.

Or maybe it’s the birth control pill, that has recently and somewhat recently been found to shrink women’s brains and cause hormonal imbalance, problems with sex drive, mood and aggression. Not only The Pill, but many various pharmaceutical drugs that are really causing a lot of people to act in the bizarre ways we have been seeing. Xanax, Adderall, Ritalin, Zoloft, Luvox, Prozac, statin drugs, and all the rest.

Drugs, processed foods, vaccine adjuvants, not to mention the screen-staring and zombie texting obsessions that many people have now. People are going nuts now.

And also, the identity politics-obsessed reading lists that are being forced on high school students. What a sick, perverted society we are living in now. It’s an “Epstein World” now, unfortunately. And I understand why the disinterest in teaching cursive writing in the schools, but many young people now don’t know something as basic as how to sign their own names. Why aren’t you parents out there teaching your own kids those things? No wonder we have “law professors” who are mainly just ignorant clowns who are looked upon as the greatest thing since wholesome sliced bread, or are just brainwashed shills for the State.

The Climate Fanatics Want to Scare People More Efficiently

The climate alarmists now are dissatisfied with their vocabulary of “climate change” and now want to “rebrand” their alarmism to “climate collapse” because they feel their current fear mongering isn’t enough, according to Robert Wenzel in a post yesterday.

“Global warming,” “global melting,” “climate collapse,” “climate catastrophe,” “climate doomsday,” “climate end-of-the-world-we’re-all-going-to-die,” and so on and so forth. Why not just change the language to “Climate Ocasio-Cortez,” because you might as well given the young congressbimbo’s hysteria that was in the news recently.

Yes, the climate on planet Earth has been changing, since the world began. There have been warming periods, and there have been ice ages. And more warming periods, and more ice ages. Unfortunately, thanks to screen-staring addictions, xanax and process foods, the masses seem to be more influenced by hysterical propaganda than by the truth especially in the past two decades.

But what is their real goal? Well, what the activists, propagandists and useful you-know-whats really want is the expansion of more governmental powers and control over the lives of the people. They want the government to be even more empowered to take even more income, wealth and property from the workers and producers from society. So, it all has to do with taking, stealing, and exercising power over others. That is what these people really want.

And speaking of global warming, why is that such a bad thing anyway? If more ice melts and the areas of the world that had been icy and chilly-frosty would then become warmer, those areas could then be used as additional places for agriculture. We can grow more food for the world and feed the masses more than we are able to do now. Isn’t that a good thing? Isn’t ending or at least reducing world hunger a good thing?

Oh, wait a minute, many of these activists and propagandists also want to kill off millions of people because they also believe the world is “too crowded.” Many of them are also pro-abortion, they support killing babies before they are born (and in some cases after they are born). They aren’t particularly concerned for the welfare of others now, are they? Nope.

So the activists now want to change or “rebrand” their language and vocabulary to more efficiently scare the people into supporting their program of more governmental powers and more government theft. Don’t listen to them. They are nuts, and those who are not nuts are just dishonest and are criminals who want to enslave and steal from their neighbors. Buy those SUVs, go on long trips, and on Earth Day 2020, make sure to keep all the lights on in the house, along with the air conditioners or heating systems. And that is what I have to say about that.

Today’s Anti-Immigration Nationalists And Their Love of Central Planning and the Police State

Thomas DiLorenzo writes on LRC about the curse of American nationalism, with reference to the recently published Volume 5 of Murray Rothbard’s Conceived in Liberty, transcribed from Rothbard’s handwritten notes and edited by Patrick Newman. DiLorenzo quotes Rothbard regarding the early American nationalists,  such as “Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Sam Adams, John Hancock, Thomas Paine…” who wanted to “destroy the original individualist and decentralized program of the American Revolution.”  DiLorenzo writes that “Conceived in Liberty tells the story, chapter and verse, of how these men subverted and overthrew the principles of American freedom that inspired the American Revolution with their ‘devious and sinister machinations,'” as Rothbard would put it.

Now, I don’t know whether DiLorenzo agrees with me on the immigration issue. But that is one issue in which today’s nationalist conservatives go off the deep end, and abandon their supposed advocacy of private property and free markets in the name of American nationalism and their deeply indoctrinated worship of “America” with all the myths and glorification that go with it.

Today’s conservatives are supporters of centralization and government central planning in many aspects of life. And they love the tyrannical national security state. With the faux “war on terror” and the wars on drugs and immigration, today’s nationalist conservatives are police statists and militarists. Not big on individualism, decentralization or privatization, these people.

One of today’s extreme nationalists, Michelle Malkin, has been on the talk shows promoting her anti-immigration and “stand with ICE” tour and her book, Open Borders, Inc.

Stand with the police state, you mean. Certainly not stand with freedom, and the ideas of the Declaration of Independence, such as unalienable rights.

Now Malkin is being snubbed by conservative groups because of her defense of someone named Nick Fuentes who has been accused of being an anti-Semitic Holocaust denier and a racist. Malkin still insists on defending Fuentes, despite his controversies. I don’t know why. And her tour is now being banned by the intolerant academic fascists on the left, including the latest being Bentley College.

Malkin, and her anti-immigration cohorts Donald Trump, Ann Coulter et al. have this collectivist, nativist ideology that overrides whatever support they might ever have for the founding principles of America.

In fact, regarding the immigration issue, in one of the Founders’ complaints against the King in their Declaration of Independence, Jefferson wrote:

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

Do they know this? So, these so-called conservative people of today are really anti-free market, anti-private property and anti-freedom of association. As I wrote in this post summarizing several past posts on immigration, when you have genuine free markets people sell their labor or goods to employers or customers, and such contracts are between them and don’t involve third parties unless specifically noted. And in a society of freedom and free markets people come and go as they please. No police state at the border, no having to report to government bureaucrats. As I wrote in that post, statists look to the ruling government bureaucrats for validation.

In contrast to the free society, if you favor the current system that consists of workers and employers having to get the government’s permission to do business or trade, then that is socialism, not capitalism and not freedom. Private property rights are such that an individual owns his own labor and sells it to an employer in a voluntary contract. When you have to get a third party’s permission or ultimate authorization in these things, then the real owner is that third party, not the laborer or employer. In the current system of government ownership of the people and “their” property, that third party owner is the U.S. government.

There are a lot of myths thrown around in the immigration debate, and one of them asserts or implies some kind of collective ownership of the U.S. territory as a whole, but there is no such collective ownership. If so, then such an arrangement overrides private property rights.

Once again I ask, why aren’t these so-called conservatives spending their time and activism on getting rid of the welfare state if they’re worried about “illegals” coming and getting on welfare? Because they LOVE the welfare state! They love Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Otherwise they would constantly advocate those socialist programs be abolished.

But there shouldn’t be government confiscation of private wealth or earnings — that’s criminal. There shouldn’t be government-imposed redistribution in any case, whether redistributed to other people here or to foreigners. Those schemes are immoral, illegitimate, and criminal, in my view.

And why are today’s conservatives so short-sighted, like the ones on the left? They don’t seem to want to address the causes of the “illegals” and the caravans coming up from the southern border. Such causes include U.S. government’s foreign interventions and foreign aid to corrupt regimes in Central America, and the “war on drugs.” The immigrants are fleeing because of the violence as consequences of drug prohibition. But sadly, many of today’s conservatives support the drug war and the nanny state in which we must turn to gubmint to tell us what we may or may not consume in our “own” bodies. Today’s conservatives support siccing the goon government police on innocent, peaceful people who haven’t harmed anyone, just as is the case with immigrants. It is the goons of ICE, that Michelle Malkin et al. love so much, who are the thugs.

And given that many more violent crimes are committed here by U.S. citizens than by immigrants, the fact that these “conservatives” spend so much time and activism only concentrating on the unauthorized entrants to the territory, then that tells me that it’s not about crime, it’s not about “stealing Americans’ jobs,” it’s not about welfare, it’s all about foreigner hating, and that’s it. It’s about collectivist nativism, and envy and covetousness as well, very much like that of the left.

If today’s conservatives such as Michelle Malkin, Rush Limbaugh and all the ditto-heads really favored the principles of America’s founding, they would promote unrestricted free markets, protection of private property, decentralization and abolishing of the police state.
