Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"The danger of thick libertarianism is not simply that vast chunks of the American population will fail to pass its entrance requirements, not keeping up every ten minutes with what MSNBC informs us is acceptable to believe and say. The danger is that thick libertarianism will import its other concerns, which by their own admission do not involve the initiation of physical force, into libertarianism itself, thereby transforming it into something quite different from the straightforward and elegant moral and social system we have been defending for generations."
Lew Rockwell

"Some argue that a state can’t leave the Union. In their argument, they will cite many sources and lay it on thick with appeals to patriotism, claims it was settled in the courts, and threats of violence, but the one thing they can’t do is use the Constitution. The Constitution is supposedly the supreme law of the Union, but you might not know it with as often as it is trampled by courts, congressmen, and presidents. Nevertheless, it is the source of authority for the federal government, and like it or not, Washington is bound by it. And in the Constitution, there is no prohibition on resigning the Union."
Ryan Thorson

"Tribes may have their differences or even come to conflict if they do not respect the nonaggression principle. But any war that erupts between two tribes is never going to match the horror of the centralized military industrial complex with its never-ending wars on a global scale. By the same token, tribalism prevents the possibility of a single world system that claims to 'end war' while enslaving the populace through dependency and force. One ring to rule them all is not the answer. It never was."
Brandon Smith

"Any political system built upon self-sacrifice (and all are) is an illusion and can only maintain authority at your expense. Distorted reality is any ploy that seeks to persuade you to share what you have with nonproducers or to seek guidance from external authority. Politics is such an ingrained system that few realize that politics is a system of reliance on external authority that perpetuates itself on illusions and distortions.
Relying on the external authority feels safe because it is the status quo. It feels like freedom because we have endured mass brainwash telling us our slavery is freedom and democracy.
But freedom and happiness are only restored through self-reliance and acting on our own judgment. Self-sufficiency and self-worth produce ultimate happiness and human liberty."
Bob Livingston

"Instead of loving truth, most people try to make true that which they love, which is a self-delusive practice that virtually guarantees frustration and failure.  Thus, most people live in an unreal world, a world they create in their own minds based on the way they would like it to be rather than the way it actually is.
It is absolutely essential that a person intellectually and emotionally recognizes that reality isn’t the way he wishes things to be or the way they appear to be, but the way they actually are.  The individual who is not able to make this distinction finds it virtually impossible to make decisions that lead to positive results."    
Robert Ringer

"The way toward the rule of the cultural Marxists is the moral corruption of the people. To accomplish this, the mass media and public education must not enlighten but confuse and mislead. The media and the educational establishment work to put one part of the society against the other part. While group identities get more specific, the catalog of victimization and history of oppression becomes more detailed. To turn into a recognized victim of suppression is the way to gain social status and to obtain the right to special assistance, of respect and social inclusion.
The demand for social justice creates an endless stream of expenditures deemed essential — for health, education, old age, and for all those people who are 'needy,' 'persecuted' and 'oppressed,' be it real or imaginary. The flood of never-ending spending in these areas corrupts the state finances and produces fiscal crises. This helps the Neo-Marxists accuse 'capitalism' of all evils when, in fact, it is the regulatory state that provokes the systemic failures and when it is the excess of public debt that causes the financial fragility."
Antony P. Mueller

"Manliness consists not in bluff, bravado or loneliness. It consists in daring to do the right thing and facing consequences whether it is in matters social, political or other. It consists in deeds not words."
Mahatma Gandhi

"Socialism is not the pioneer of a better and finer world, but the spoiler of what thousands of years of civilization have created.  It does not build; it destroys.  For destruction is the essence of it.  It produces nothing, it only consumes what the social order based on private ownership in the means of production has created each step leading towards socialism must exhaust itself in the destruction of what already exists."
Ludwig von Mises

"'If only we could get back to the Constitution'. I have heard this phrase uttered an untold number of times, but what does it mean? It means nothing to me, for it is not a worthwhile argument or for that matter, any argument at all. It places reverence on a political document, and any thinking person should be able to understand that if the protection of individual rights is due to a constitution drafted by politicians, then he has no rights at all."
Gary D. Barnett

"Guns have two enemies – rust and politicians."
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:

This is what happens down the proverbial slippery slope when you don’t follow that Piece of Paper.

These DC Demons will do whatever necessary to start a war.

The fact that DARPA is involved in this supposed “peaceful” research should raise lots of alarms.

The DC criminals have their own agenda and it certainly does not include your inalienable right to arm and defend yourself.

More central planning from your Commie Overlords.

All they have to do is pop out an anchor baby and presto! 

And not just in the summer time. The Orange Lord feels some national socialism is necessary to appease Big Agra and the climate kooks.

This after eight years of claiming they would kill it. But the voting, loyalist, parasites just love having their pre-existing conditions covered and paid for by tax slaves like you.

Covering pre-existing conditions in health insurance is just as idiotic as being able to insure your home while it’s on fire!

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 some libertarians wish to hope for or work toward a society that conforms to their ideological preferences, they are of course free to do so. But it is wrong for them – especially given their insistence on a big tent within libertarianism – to impose on other libertarians whatever idiosyncratic spin they happen to have placed on our venerable tradition, to imply that people who do not share these other ideologies can’t be real libertarians, or to suggest that it would be 'highly unlikely' that anyone who fails to hold them could really be a libertarian. That these are the same people who complain about 'intolerance' is only the most glaring of the ironies."
Lew Rockwell

"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it."
George Orwell

"Each American State needs to carefully re-examine its relationship with the Union to determine whether their needs are best served as a member or else declare Washington in breach, and the social-contract void. However, in the light of the systemic horrors perpetrated on us by our federal government, in a long corrupt history, it’s difficult to imagine that the informed conclusion would be anything other than the imperative need to separate."
Ryan Thorson

"If you give a dime to any 'gun rights' organization doing special pleading with the owners of the tax plantation and they help craft legislation and not eliminate laws and statutes, they are the king’s men and don’t give a rat’s ass about individual and private small arms ownership."
Bill Buppert

"Tribalism is commonly presented in the mainstream as a barbaric and outdated mode of living, which is why I highly recommend it. The more centralized civilization becomes, the less varied its ideas are, the less self-sufficient it is and the more easily controlled it is. This is the point, of course. Globalists use any means at their disposal to enforce centralization not because they think it will serve to better mankind, but because it gives them more dominance over mankind."
Brandon Smith

"The fact is that there is no ‘American People’. There are people who live on the North American continent, but that also includes Canadians and Mexicans. There are people who live within the political union called the United States of America. Perhaps those are the Americans. But to say that America is one nation, a single, homogenous and well-defined people is a massive stretch. If we are ‘one people,’ then it seems unusual that we would all readily identify ourselves as something other than simply American."
Daniel Miller

"If robots save us from the toil and trouble of working, that’s one thing. It means replacing leisure for labor, which cannot be a bad thing. But robots cannot replace us as valuers and consumers; no automated process can figure out what we will want. They can only carry out the work after the ends have been recognized. Ridding humanity of this burden cannot conceivably be a threat."
Per Bylund

"Democratic socialism is anathema to human liberty and is a concealed form of slavery. Democracy equals socialism equals communism equals fascism. They are all totalitarian forms of collectivism demanding self-sacrifice and total allegiance to the state, and are all anathema to life and liberty and property."
Bob Livingston

"The state is a human institution, not a superhuman being. He who says state means coercion and compulsion. He who says: There should be a law concerning this matter, means: The armed men of the government should force people to do what they do not want to do, or not to do what they like. He who says: This law should be better enforced, means: the police should force people to obey this law. He who says: The state is God, deifies arms and prisons."
Ludwig von Mises

"Once the government abandoned neutrality, foreign policy became more and more reckless, dangerous, and costly. It became less and less done on behalf of U.S. interests properly judged and became more and more a vehicle for interventionists, unilateralists, moralists, neocons, deep-staters, special business interests, special foreign interests, power-hungry politicians, and all the beneficiaries of a huge military-industrial complex.
These groups, whose interests are not the vital national interests of the American people, designate Russia as an enemy because they need enemies to sustain their power and money grabs. They made terrorism an enemy. They made the Taliban an enemy. They made Iraq an enemy. They have made Iran an enemy. They made Gaddafi an enemy. The more enemies they can create, the better it is for them. The worse it is for us."
Michael Rozeff

"I may, as a result of long endeavors to trace the destructive effect which the invocation of ‘social justice’ has had on our moral sensitivity, and of again and again finding even eminent thinkers thoughtlessly using the phrase, have become unduly allergic to it, but I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I can make ... speakers and writers ... thoroughly employ the term ‘social justice’."
F.A. Hayek1

"Being united by force just averages the good states with the bad. It means states can’t feel the full benefit of their good policies. It means they don’t suffer the full consequences of their failures.
It means wealth is redistributed. It means power is centralized. It means individuals have less control than they would over a smaller, more local government.
Forced unity eliminates the marketplace for the government. Let the states compete, and the best policies will rise to the top.
The American people will then truly have a choice and a voice in government.
You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers."
Joe Jarvis

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:

Regime Airport Goons Want to Scan Your Face

And if that causes you to miss your flight….well, tough luck for you!

And, as usual, the numbers reported are much lower than the reality.

Their idea is people around the world will more easily tolerate being killed by female hired killers rather than exclusively male ones.

From this, they claim, women will be “catalysts of change” and “create long lasting peace.”

Got that?

They’re coming in freaking caravans!

And now a Regime Clown-in-Gown has granted a defacto amnesty for 300,000 border invaders from previous decades.

Which under any reasonable person’s view would be an act of war.

Regime Consider 'Taking' Out Russian Missiles

Which under an reasonable person's views would be an act of war.

Doing what they can to slaughter and starve Yemenis while distracting the voting serfs.

And we subjects are supposed to consider this an “historic win.”

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:

"Advancement within a totalitarian group or party depends largely on a willingness to do immoral things. The principle that the end justifies the means, which in individualist ethics is regarded as the denial of all morals, in collectivist ethics becomes necessarily the supreme rule. There is literally nothing which the consistent collectivist must not be prepared to do if it serves ‘the good of the whole’, because that is to him the only criterion of what ought to be done."
F. A. Hayek

"Hopefully the takeaway for those who relished the idea of 'draining the swamp' is the realization that this can’t be accomplished by simply changing the name of the person who occupies the top office. The Federal government can’t be fixed; it must have its powers taken away.
Political decentralization is the only way to truly make America great again."
Tho Bishop

"The only hope to escape the societal disintegration caused by socialism is to escape the United States. The path Washington has set for itself is very clear, and for it to leave that path would take a something akin to a great-awakening, and there’s no indication that will ever happen. However, if states like Texas were to utilize their right to resign a Union that is dedicated to such destructive propositions, personally dealing with the crises left ignored and exacerbated by Washington, then Texas and like-minded states could probably escape most of the fallout of the impending U.S. economic collapse. If we don’t, however, if we keep a fool’s hope of making America great again, or if we resolve that socialism will work fine despite all available evidence to the contrary, then it doesn’t matter if Washington wears the face of Cortez or Trump. Ultimately, we’d still be chained to a federal government that, to one degree or another, simply cannot/will not stop spending more money than it has, a sinking ship of state that would rather listen to the band one more time than man the lifeboats."
Ryan Thorson

"The CIA should be abolished because it’s dysfunctional, but also because it serves no useful purpose. It’s never ever predicted, through its so-called 'intelligence gathering,' anything of value—ever. The Korean War, the rise of Castro, the fall of the Shah, the rise of Islam, the fact that the Soviet Union was just an empty shell—you know, they thought the Soviet Union was actually competing with the US from an economic point of view. They’re always absolutely wrong on everything. It defies the odds of pure chance. They’re not just useless, but extremely dangerous. All the coups and revolutions they’ve plotted were disasters."
Doug Casey

"Most everyone who has read my screeds know that I hold the Constitution in low odor and consider it one of the greatest human slaver documents ever written; it took the Declaration of Independence, gutted it, reversed course and embraced the worst forms of centralization popular at the time and even borrowed from Roman governance in the past. It took the worst offenses of the Crown in London, localized them and started mimicking those very notions early in its career as the liberty destroyer in America."
Bill Buppert

"The morality of socialism is easily summed up in a few words: envy and sacrifice based on a phony and coerced sense of altruism.
The socialist not only envies and wants a portion of the wealth of others; he desires to see the wealth of others lowered to the level of his own. The socialist wants to use a sense of altruism — couched in terms like 'fairness,' 'equality' and  'fair share' — to coerce those who have into willingly giving a portion of their wealth to others. That failing, the socialist desires that the power and organized violence of the state be used to create a level of conformity and reduce everyone to the same level — even if it is the level of poverty and privation."
Bob Livingston

"Education into liberation politics is a dead end. Producing Red Guards is a dead end. It doesn’t put bread on the table. It does a disservice to youth, and particularly the youth that this group emphasizes, 'low-income youth and youth of color.' It directs their time and energy in fruitless directions. Youth is not going to get ahead by telling themselves that they are disadvantaged, plundered by colonialists of the past, burdened by imperialists, and savaged by oppressors. Discovering racism in every nook and cranny of a word, a glance and a paycheck is not going to cut it. Looking for insults based upon sexual gradations cannot be a way of life or support a civilization. If revolutionary youth or their communist leaders took over, paradise would not burgeon. Bread would not suddenly appear."
Michael Rozeff

"The worship of the state is the worship of force. There is no more dangerous menace to civilization than a government of incompetent, corrupt, or vile men. The worst evils which mankind ever had to endure were inflicted by bad governments."
Ludwig von Mises

"Every day throughout the world, billions of Christians, Jews, and Muslims violate the First Commandment of God’s Holy Laws given to Moses on Mt. Sinai by their craven obeisance and worship of this bloody Moloch, with its graven idols and belligerent flags of war, symbolizing this predatory paganism.
Thus is born a new generation of blind worshipers at the Golden Calf of Statism."
Charles Burris

"There is very little economic inequality in North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela. 
Why? Because their citizens are equal in their misery. 
Look around the world and you'll find that the poorest countries are the most equal and the least free, while the freest countries are the richest and most unequal. 
When someone argues for more economic equality, understand that they are really arguing for less freedom."
Alexander Green

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:

Just in case they decide you are a “bad actor.”

The first priority of the DC Death Cult is to always protect arm sales by the War Whores.

I guess people starving isn’t punishment enough.

One of the leading criminals of 911 gets to decide what is “good democracy” in Iran.

Is this direct threat just a coincidence, happening on the same day as a terrorist attack in Iran?

But not to worry- The Regime led terrorists are taking “every possible precaution” to keep these deaths from happening. Feel better?

The fact that these attacking nation states were never invited by the Syrians to attack, invade, and “liberate” their country never seems to come up.

Meanwhile, Regime invaders claim they will stay in Syria, most likely forever.

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 nations throughout history have been ruled by a small group of people who draw all wealth and power to themselves. They, of course, are always very careful to establish their governments as popular fronts. Sometimes they call them democracy, sometimes socialism, sometimes communism; and now democratic socialism.
The result is always the same, regardless of what they’re called. Don’t be fooled. The political con game is all about the transformation of human beings to the Animal Farm. Everyone is equal, but some more equal than others."
Bob Livingston

"Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it. To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it. With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe. "
Arundhati Roy

"Certainly, the trajectory of U.S. history supports the inevitability of socialism, from the early progressivism of Wilson and Roosevelt to the expansion and further codification of those ideals by Johnson and Obama. The U.S. has embraced the concept of government being all things and rejected the brilliance of Liberty under limited government. While this socialistic progression has been slowed at times, it has never been reversed and there’s no reason to believe it ever will be. Washington has a rendezvous with economic and societal collapse. We’ll burnout slower than Venezuela, but we’ll burnout all the same."
Ryan Thorson

"Many libertarian types make the argument that we would benefit from open borders when it comes to both people and goods. That vision ignores the important fact that when we import, say, tomatoes from Mexico, as opposed to people, to the U.S., they are not going to demand that we supply them with welfare benefits."
Walter Williams

"Our current defense system centralizes national defense. One outcome is that the CIA, charged with collecting and analyzing foreign intelligence, wants to be at the cutting edge of technology. Its mission leads to In-Q-Tel. Eisenhower’s warning needs to be revised and expanded. This kind of CIA operation threatens to absorb more and more money while financing more and more companies, while creating a secret government within the government and making elected officials subservient to the intelligence operations. The core of immense power and total control of the citizenry is present in this system. The CIA has already influenced code and backdoors in widely used applications, and the NSA already has built up huge storehouses of communications.
A system of total control is being constructed, even if no mastermind intends it. That system’s growth results from and accompanies the imperative to defend the country. In the name of defense, nothing lies beyond the attempted control of the centralized forces that claim the defense monopoly. The system has the incentive to grow without limit. That means that it will be turned against Americans."
Michael Rozeff

"Just like the puritanical progressives called the American Indians 'savages,' they [Yankees] too demean the South, insisting it’s comprised of 'seditious states' and 'backwards-ass crackers,' who must be retaken and continually remade to fit their ever-malleable whims. They see themselves as perpetuating God’s will, yet they’re pagan totalitarians who worship idols like Mr. Lincoln."
Dissident Mama

"Trade is voluntary commercial exchange, usually of a good or service for cash. Although trade is properly just engaging in commerce, it is commonly what we call international commerce. Free trade is just commercial freedom from government interference.
That trade takes place between entities residing in two different countries is of no consequence. Exports are not preferable to imports. Manufacturers who export should not hold a protected position in a nation’s economy. Merchants who import should not be penalized for doing so.
Trade is not a national game in which some countries are winners and some are losers. Trade is not a zero-sum game in which one side gains at the expense of the other. And neither does trade take place between an 'exploiter' and an 'exploited.'
Trade is always a win-win proposition. In every exchange, each party gives up something it values less for something it values more. Each party to a transaction values differently the goods or services being exchanged. Each party anticipates a gain from the exchange or it wouldn’t engage in commerce with the other party. And each party will repeat the exchange again if its estimated gain has proved to be satisfactory."
Laurence Vance

"Almost all bad situations start with false assumptions based on bias rather than facts or evidence. The most dangerous assumption when it comes to tyranny is 'we are in the right, therefore we are not supporting tyranny.' The question that needs to be asked, though, is are they really right according to the facts? If the answer is 'no,' then they are probably fueling a tyrannical system."
Brandon Smith

"Both parties, Marxism and National Socialism [i.e., Nazism] agree in opposing [classical] Liberalism and rejecting the capitalist social order.  Both desire a socialist order of society.  The only difference in their programme lies in slight variations in their respective pictures of the future socialist state; non-essential variations, as we could easily show.  The foremost demands of the National Socialist agitation are different from those of the Marxists.  While the Marxists speak of abolishing the commodity character of labour, the National Socialists [Nazis] speak of breaking the slavery of interest.  While the Marxists hold the 'capitalists' responsible for every evil, the National Socialists think to express themselves more concretely by shouting ‘Death to the Jews’ . . . . Marxism, National Socialism, and other anti-capitalist parties . . .all agree on the decisive problem of reshaping the social order: they reject private ownership in the means of production and desire a socialist order of society."
Ludwig von Mises
