Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"Facebook clearly singled out Alex Jones. It didn’t embrace 'diverse views'. It didn’t remove him because of some 'specific harm' he was causing. If he were doing some harm, Facebook would have reported him to the police for investigation; or the people being harmed could have sued Jones.
Facebook’s removal of Alex Jones is politically-motivated. It’s coming from the Left, but it would not be surprising if well-known right-wing politicians and deep state members joined in the attack on Jones because he questions the Establishment and conventional narratives. Alex Jones is 'proud to be listed as a thought criminal against Big Brother'. His basic orientation is to question appearances and to propose that considered judgments and aims of large-scale, powerful and monied interests lie behind important events. In his own case of being banished by major communications companies, this appears to be true!"
Michael Rozeff

"Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.
So far from encouraging a wholesome development of social power, it has invariably, as Madison said, turned every contingency into a resource for depleting social power and enhancing State power.  As Dr. Sigmund Freud has observed, it can not even be said that the State has ever shown any disposition to suppress crime, but only to safeguard its own monopoly of crime."
Albert Jay Nock

"If, just for the sake of argument, we accepted critics' insistence that the rights of property are not absolute and must sometimes be curtailed, it would not follow that it is the state rather than the individual conscience that must do the curtailing.
State power to aggress against property owners inevitably encourages man's most predatory instincts, giving him an incentive to devote less time to satisfying the needs of his fellow men and more time to using the state's machinery of coercion to loot them for his own selfish benefit. To put this in language more familiar to our critics, the release of such instincts undermines the common good."
Tom Woods

"Socialism is political cancer. It literally ruins every place in which it’s tried; routinely with attendant casualties in the millions. But its message of 'free stuff, and the rich guys pay for it' sells to millennials, their burnt-out hippie parents, and their college philosophy professors; none of whom realize that once they’ve gotten rid of the rich guys, there’s no one left to pay for anything. Nonetheless, the Democrats are bringing it back. It’s the perfect complement to their 'pussy' hats and Che’ t-shirts — and losing."
Ben Crystal

"No one loves socialism quite like a moron who has never experienced it firsthand." 
Kurt Schlichter

"The Constitution was created by the states. The 10th Amendment guarantees all powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution to the states and the people. So when the judicial branch of the federal government can overturn a state law as unconstitutional, the Constitution has been turned on its head. The creator cannot be overruled by the created."
Bob Livingston

"Does an act clearly immoral when done privately become moral when done collectively? Does legality or majority consensus establish morality? Before you answer, consider that slavery was legal; South African apartheid was legal; the horrendous Stalinist, Nazi and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality or a majority consensus cannot establish morality."
Walter Williams

"Of all the reasons for Texas to sever ties with the Union, the impending fiscal collapse of the U.S. is the most critical. When that happens (not if), it will have catastrophic effects throughout the world. However, if Texas were today to establish a complete return to sovereignty, as is its right, we could begin preparations for that soon-coming day, to insulate ourselves and mitigate the damage. If we wait, we may look upon the fears we had for a hypothetical independent Texas as a relative blessing compared to the stark realities of the crisis of hyperinflation."
Ryan Thorson

"Collapse of a State means a weakening of the instruments of coercion by means of which property in the fruits of one's labors was transferred to nonproducing rulership or its supporting accomplices. Thereafter, maybe for centuries, freedom prevails, men learn to dream and hope again, and the realization of each dream through effort encourages further fantasy and generates more effort; thus wealth multiplies, knowledge accumulates, manners take shape, and the nonmaterial values attain importance in man's hierarchy. A new civilization is born.
Although something of the lost civilization is recaptured by accident, what is dug up has to be relearned; the new civilization does not grow out of its predecessor, but emerges from the efforts of the living. At any rate, history tells us, a civilization no more than gets started when a political institution attaches itself to it, feeds on it, and in the end devours it. And the roundelay starts all over again."
Frank Chodorov

"In government, the scum rises to the top."
Friedrich Hayek

US Crimes of the Week

Truthful headlines (and just one week’s worth) offering you more reasons to separate yourselves from The Regime’s madness:

Wherever nastiness rears its head in Africa, The Regime seems to be involved.

This “program” was created illegally out of thin air by the previous Emperor, something that the Gangster Congress only has the power to do (if you believe the Piece of Paper).

Supporting DC gangsters have already found a back door way to fund it.

No need to worry- It’s just local gangsters working with their “federal partners.”

And somehow, that’s a good thing?

It seems that continually promoting the Scam That Just Won’t Die (Russophobia, not socialism) is popular with voting, toothless, loyalist, hillbillies.

$300 million of your stolen money is going toward funding the “security” of part of a continent on the other side of the world. And all to maintain the criminal hegemony of the DC Regime.

It’s time to start starving Iranians and destroying their economy.

Anyone else who does not cooperate with this necessary action to “stabilizing” this country will be destroyed as well.

The Big Tech Purge now underway is just a start.

So tell me the difference, again, between The Blue Gang and the Red Gang?

They either pay them off to leave the area to fight another day or outright recruit them to kill for the Empire.

Isn’t it interesting that Russia recognizes the right of secession but the Dregs of DC do not?

Paid for with money stolen from you, of course.

Why remain a suffering subject? Why do you need a “US?”

Secession, anyone?

Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"The average person has been programmed to trust the government. It starts with their grade school civics books, and continues through college courses on 'political science,' where Boobus americanus is assured we live in the best of all possible worlds. Sure, everyone knows governments make mistakes and are occasionally clumsy. But the average person actually thinks the government’s his friend.
This is why they're perfectly willing to give up privacy for convenience. They think their interests are in the hands of competent, good humored, and good-natured people. But that’s not the case at all.
The government is an entity with its own interests. It’s like a parasite or a predator that is living off of society at large."
Doug Casey

"Just as it is supremely dysfunctional for a major economy to hang on every word of a central bank chairman, so too should it be considered abnormal and unhealthy for a country of 320 million people to wait with bated breath for the latest prognostications of nine friends of presidents in black robes from their palatial offices in Washington, DC.
We’re told by pundits and politicians from across the spectrum how indispensable, awe-inspiring, and absolutely essential the Supreme Court is. In truth, we should be looking for ways to undermine, cripple, and to generally force the Court into irrelevance."
Ryan McMaken

"Nowadays we are being told that consumption is aesthetically displeasing, and that we should strive to get back to nature, stop driving here and there, make a compost pile, raise our own vegetables, unplug our computers, and eat nuts off trees. This longing for the primitive is nothing but an attempt to cast a pleasing gloss on the inevitable effects of socialist policies. They are telling us to love poverty and hate plenty.
But the beauty of the market economy is that it gives everyone a choice. For those people who prefer outhouses to indoor plumbing, pulling their teeth to dentistry, and eating nuts from trees rather than buying a can of Planters at Wal-Mart, they too have the right to choose that way of life. But don't let them say that they are against 'consumerism.' To live at all requires that we buy and sell. To be against commerce is to attack life itself."
Lew Rockwell

"The structures that dominate mankind are monopolistic, non-optional, and violence based. The central principle of their operations – the one they enforce thousands of times every day – is this: Do what we say or we’ll hurt you.
However offended people may be at these statements, it will not be because they are false. Rather, they will be offended that such things are discussed. It’s not pleasant to face the fact that our world’s basic organizational structures are barbaric relics of the Bronze Age.
These systems are offensive structures by design. They are built to extract money from large populations, to consolidate those takings in the seat of the operation, and to use that money to become more powerful than every other such system. And their 6,000-year track record most certainly bears this out."
Paul Rosenberg

"The concept of judicial review is the ultimate example of the fox guarding the henhouse. Supreme Court justices are unelected autocrats with lifetime appointments. They are paid by the government, they are agents of the government and they almost always rule in favor of the government. There is no accountability to the people and the people have no say in their appointment."
Bob Livingston

"What a country calls its vital economic interests are not the things which enable its citizens to live, but the things which enable it to make war… What is called national prestige consists in behaving always in such a way as to demoralize other nations by giving them the impression that, if it comes to war, one would certainly defeat them. What is called national security is an imaginary state of affairs in which one would retain the capacity to make war while depriving all other countries of it."
Simone Weil

"Defund the American university from any tax dollars, funded debt or bonds and you will critically damage the ability of the state to produce its vast legions of Goebbels-gargling boosters and collaborators."
Bill Buppert

US Crimes of the Week

Truthful headlines (and just one week’s worth) offering you more reasons to separate yourselves from The Regime’s madness:

Only approved and scripted propaganda is offered and certainly, no questions are allowed.

You are now tried and convicted on the spot by "trained" hell hounds.

And here you thought they were there just to joyfully grab your crotch at the gate…

When you ruler’s suspicions are aroused enough, hell hounds will detain you to smell your wallet.

The necessary “intelligence and understanding as to what is happening on the ground” is well under way.

Of course, that is only if you consider this war legitimate to begin with. If not, every single dollar (and life) spent has been wasted.

It needs a new gear. Cost- $30 million.

You say you husband beats you in your Central American, third world shithole? You would now qualify to be one of the 32 million new invaders allowed entry to the welfare nirvana of the US Collective!

The political enemies of these criminals are referred to the Gestapo for investigation as “domestic terrorists.”

Isn’t it a “crime” when ignorant, deranged creatures like this claim to be your overlords and forcibly take your money to pay their salaries.

How can tolerating such madness be considered rational?

It’s a “temporary” command for now. Will these politi-gangsters and lie peddling propagandists finally realize they can’t possibly halt or even regulate the flow of information?

No place on earth is immune to or safe from the Empire’s rage against those who refuse to bow.

They’re troubled about the treatment of “Rohingya Muslims.”

Have you ever before heard of “Rohingya Muslims?”

How is the treatment of “Rohingya Muslims” any of their business?

Do you really care about the treatment of “Rohingya Muslims?”

And the Trump Chump loyalists will gladly grab their ankles and suffer even more to please their god-Trump savior.

Why remain a suffering subject? Why do you need a “US?”

Secession, anyone?

Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"All varieties of (government) interference with the market phenomena not only fail to achieve the ends aimed at by their authors and supporters, but bring about a state of affairs which — from the point of view of the authors' and advocates' valuations — is less desirable than the previous state of affairs which they were designed to alter. If one wants to correct their manifest unsuitableness and preposterousness by supplementing the first acts of intervention with more and more of such acts, one must go farther and farther until the market economy has been entirely destroyed and socialism has been substituted for it." 
Ludwig von Mises

"The world would be better off if nobody thought in political terms, if we thought strictly in economic terms. Society would be vastly more peaceful, prosperous, and happy if people thought mainly about what goods and services they can provide to other people in the market. Not how the people in government should reorder society.
Politics isn’t the solution. It’s the problem."
Doug Casey

"He who builds his fortune, his beliefs or his health upon a foundation of information from the mainstream builds his house upon the sand. This syndrome is no different from the drug addict who plans his existence upon acquiring the next fix. 
Think about transferring your existence from mass media and false phrases designed to deceive you to life and reality above the 'madness of the crowd' while you can.
Encrypt everything, even your thinking. You're on the animal farm. Propaganda puts us in an altered state of consciousness, otherwise we would know that the supposed fight for equality and social justice is a war on us."
Bob Livingston

"Trade between entities residing in two different countries should not be regarded as any different from what happens when two entities in the United States engage in commerce. Trade is really just international commerce. Free trade is really just commercial freedom. That the two parties engaged in commerce are not located in the same country has no economic significance whatsoever. Nations as such don’t gain or lose from trade; only individual traders do. The erroneous idea that trade takes place between nations also leads to the bogus concept of the trade deficit. But as Adam Smith wrote in 'The Wealth of Nations back in 1776': ‘Nothing can be more absurd than the whole doctrine of the balance of trade’."
Laurence Vance

"The longest lasting and most (relatively) libertarian society had law that was supported by something transcendent, something not human and more than human; call it respect for culture and tradition or call it God.  In its place, we have tried constitutions and we have tried strongmen.
Neither has worked very well at securing and maintaining liberty."
Bionic Mosquito

"We live in a country where five people on a court decide what the law is for 320 million people. And for some reason, many people think this is entirely normal. It's our own American version of the Soviet politburo, but few are even bothering to ask whether it's a good idea.
After all, if it makes sense for a small handful of people to decide law for the entire country, why even bother with a House of Representatives? Even the Senate — composed primarily of multimillionaires living full-time in Washington, DC, is is extravagantly ‘democratic.’
In practice, the Supreme Court is just another federal legislature, although this one decides matters of public policy based on the opinions of a mere five people, most of whom spend their time utterly divorced from the economic realities of ordinary people while cavorting with oligarchs and other elites."
Ryan McMaken

"The whole history of ideas about society has been spent trying to come up with some system that serves the common man rather than just the elites, the rulers, and the powerful. When the market economy, and its capitalistic structure, came into being, that institution was finally discovered. With the advent of economic science, we came to understand how this could be. We began to see how it is that billions of unplanned economic choices could conspire to create a beautiful global system of production and distribution that served everyone. And how do the intellectuals respond to this? By denouncing it as providing too much to too many.
But are people buying superfluous things that they can do without? Certainly. But who is to say for sure what is a need as versus a mere want? A dictator who knows all? How can we know that his desires will accord with my needs and yours? In any case, in a market economy, wants and needs are linked, so that one person's necessities are met precisely because other people's wants are met."
Lew Rockwell

"Egalitarianism under the best circumstances becomes hypocrisy; if sincerely accepted and believed in, its menace is greater. Then all actual inequalities appear without exception to be unjust, immoral, intolerable. Hatred, unhappiness, tension, a general maladjustment is the result. The situation is even worse when brutal efforts are made to establish equality through a process of artificial leveling (‘social engineering’) which can only be done by force, restrictions, or terror, and the outcome is a complete loss of liberty."
Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

US Crimes of the Week

Truthful headlines (and just one week’s worth) offering you more reasons to separate yourselves from The Regime’s madness:

Emperor to Have War Parade

The $12 million cost is just a “planning figure.” Assume that the cost will increase by factors of ten or more by November.

Remember when such parades and this, this, and this were laughed at and even despised?

Emperor Threatens More War Against China

He considers it “the right thing” to significantly increase your cost of living to serve his cronies.

The Emperor raises taxes on his subjects (through tariffs on Chinese goods) which inspires the Chinese to counter with tariffs of their own against American farm products. So now The Regime wants to hit their subjects again by using their stolen money to pay subsidies directly to American farmers who are losing business to the Chinese!

Put another way- The Emperor starts a war with China that hurts (exploits) the many for the benefit of a few. He then further taxes those who are hurting to benefit (through subsidies) only a small part of this group that is hurt by his war.

Does anyone else see how insane that is and that it makes far more sense just to eradicate tariffs altogether?

State intervention in commerce always creates problems, prompting even more interventions to (supposedly) fix those very same, newly created problems. These secondary interventions create even more problems and before you know it, you’ve created a complicated maze of beneficiaries and victims. And whomever has the most political power and greatest claim to victimhood are the winners. Everyone else wind up being the losers.

Another family wiped out, even more “terrorists” created.

Expect even more Regime created tragedy in the near future as the bombs are dropping at a record rate.

It’s 1953 all over again.

And the Regime just winks at the problem.

You have to figure that getting pregnant and making burritos is probably the only "skills" they women have to offer.

It’s past time for these two scams (anchor babies and asylum) to end!

Why remain a suffering subject? Why do you need a “US?”

Secession, anyone?

Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"If the state did nothing but provide a police force to protect you from criminals inside its bailiwick, a military to protect you from aggressors outside its borders, and a court system to allow you to adjudicate disputes without resorting to force—I could live with that. That's reasonable enough.
The problem is that these three functions are too important to be left to the kind of people that inevitably gravitate towards government. Government workers and politicians are the kind of people that like to control other people's lives. They're natural busybodies. So even those three functions, which are the only legitimate reasons for the state, should be left to the private sector."
Doug Casey

"We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and banks destroy the economy."
Chris Hedges

"I don't want to sit on the throne. I don't want you sitting on throne. I don't want all of us to sit on the throne together. I don't want to attack anyone who's on the throne. I don't want to destroy the throne. I don't want to declare myself an enemy of the throne. I don't want to wage war against the throne. I don't even want to talk about the throne. I want to build things that undermine the very relevance and perceived necessity of the throne.
I don't want a world where division is seen as something that needs to be overcome by the 'right' central institution. I want a world where division is the very foundation for an entirely new landscape of human interaction and exchange."
T.K. Coleman

"The reality is, if Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and their brethren were alive today, they would not be Democrats or Republicans. They would be political 'extremists' shunned by the mainstream establishment. They might even be smeared as 'conspiracy theorists.' Few nations have ever had such a historical dichotomy; those who fought for our independence, and who were revered as heroes for most of this country’s history, are anathema to our present-day leaders. They are collectively Those Who Cannot be Mentioned."
Donald Jeffries

"All governments by nature attract greedy and parasitic people. In short, these are people who have the born mentality to live off other people.
Politics and government are perfectly made for them. Keep in mind, there are a few exceptions. These (shall I call them humanoids?) have unusual qualities and attributes of personality that present them as benevolent, caring and concerned people with absolutely no hint that they wear masks that hide them as charlatans and greedy monsters. Under the masks they are Satanists devouring whom they will. Greed and aggrandizement are their silent forte."
Bob Livingston

"People who resolve to undermine a nation’s sovereignty by breaking its most fundamental of laws are willing to do virtually anything else to fulfill their desires.  It is understandable that they should want to leave their home countries and come to America so as to provide a better lives for themselves and their families. But unless it is morally permissible for one’s personal happiness to be purchased at any and all costs—unless the ends always justify the means—this doesn’t change the fact that such people disrespect America and her citizens when they invade our country."
Jack Kerwick

"Regardless of major or course of study, the main object of modern education is to sand off remnants of any cultural or historical specificity and identity that might still stick to our students, to make them perfect company men and women for a modern polity and economy that penalizes deep commitments. Efforts first to foster appreciation for 'multi-culturalism' signaled a dedication to eviscerate any particular cultural inheritance, while the current fad of 'diversity' signals thoroughgoing commitment to de-cultured and relentless homogenization."
Patrick Deneen

"Progressives love to attack conservatives as anti-science, wallowing in fake news, and culturally backwards. But who are the real denialists here? There are three institutions in American life run by gatekeepers who have stopped letting in anyone who questions their liberal script: academia, journalism, and pop culture. They use their cult-like groupthink consensus as 'proof' that science, reporting, and entertainment will always back up the Democrats. They give their most political members awards, and then say the awards make their liberal beliefs true. Worse, they are using that consensus to pull the country even further to the left, by bullying and silencing dissent from even those they've allowed in."
Stefan Molyneux

"Texas needs to protect her people from a Washington that cares little about propriety and legality, only valuing the exercise of raw power. By resigning the corrupt Union, Texas could ensure that its government would be too limited to ever attack its citizens in such a way. But if we tarry, if Texas refrains from exercising its right to self-determination, trusting in Washington solutions with a mere change in the cast, there will be more such bi-partisan outrages on the horizon."
Ryan Thorson
