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:

It’s the classic white-to-black, wealth redistribution plan- meaning closing the “wealth gap” through outright robbery.

The bill aims to “equip teachers” to indoctrinate their students with disinformation supplied by climate kooks.

Disregard for a moment the fraud perpetrated here towards young minds and consider how these overpaid “teachers” can’t even successfully teach them reading and mathematics. How are their students going to understand any of this?

Now head choppers will have nukes. 

His DC Demons will bring rainbows and fairy dust to do “those living in non-democratic regimes.” 

And if he has to kill tens of thousands of these same folks to accomplish that, so be it.

His false flags have already begun!

Need proof?

Apparently, The Regime’s covert coups are now being replaced by overt coups.

“Embrace “democracy” or we will starve you!”

She calls it “financial assistance”- a much friendlier sounding term to get votes.

Emperor Wannabe Coming for Your Money to ‘Resolve’ Your Ancestor’s Sins

He’ll set up a “task force” to investigate your ancestors. Then after all the guilty pay their sin tax, we’ll all move “forward” as a “nation with one destiny.”

The last clown who talked that way got his head blown off.

First it was a complete pullout. Then it was 200 troops to remain. Now, just one day, later, it’s 400.

Any bets that those numbers will have increased a week from now?

Whatever the number, they claim these remaining troops will remain “indefinitely” - meaning forever!

And the area where they’re remaining is the area most likely where they’ll risk open conflict with Russian troops.

Let’s see if we can calculate how many jihadi terrorists have been created by the slaughter….

She’ll fit in perfectly among the DC Demons

Just look at her platform and the slave and enslaving mentality is obvious.

Will she have to pay reparations?

Fraud and looting are obviously two of her favorite tools of crime.

Well, at least until you or someone else can present “ideas” that are goofier, more insane, more economically ignorant, and more liberty hating than hers!

She also seems a bit confused about where she lives.

It’s just a vague suggestion now, but you can bet that forced sterilization will soon be on the docket.

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 more U.S. history we know and the better acquainted we are with previous presidents, the more we realize bad guys have, on balance, been the norm. And that the presidents of our own day have quite a task in front of them in order to match that level of iniquity.
In fact, I would say the worst thing the schools do in U.S. history is to instill a superstitious reverence for the presidents. They run down the legislative record of various presidential administrations, and the poor kids are left to believe that these must have been truly extraordinary men.
For if people demanded free X, and the president gave them free X, well, that's all there is to say about the matter, isn't it? What other consideration could there be? If he signed the Save the Children bill, well, the guy loves kids! And so on. That's the level of analysis students get in virtually every school in the country."
Tom Woods

"'Honest' Abe supplanted Honest George as the quintessential American, and thus two American symbols had been born. One represented the original American order, the other a new America; one conservative and rational, the other revolutionary; one built on the refined ancient constitutions and customs of Western Civilization, the other in a rough-hewn world of log cabins, dirty jokes, foul language, and shifting political sands.
While the monuments of each man may serve as pseudo sentinels guarding the United States Capitol building, America and its legacy cannot be both Washington’s and Lincoln’s. It may seem that both men had much in common, but they, and the symbolic America they represent, are in fact incompatible.
The chasm between Washington and Lincoln is larger than the reflecting pool or one spot in a historical presidential ranking.
Lincoln has become America and America is worse for it."
Brion McClanahan

"Imagine a world wherein sovereignty was truly understood and honored. What would change?
Well, obviously we’d no longer see the most powerful nations interceding in the affairs of others, bursting in and treating a weaker country like property because it has resources it wants or a style of government it doesn’t. The idea that there are people in the world whose lives you don’t get to control would be seen not as some outlandish, fringe notion to be dismissed as wacky crackpottery, but as a self-evident truth which forms the guiding principles of the way different parts of the world interact with each other."
Caitlin Johnstone

"While both collectivists and individualists claim to seek the betterment of the human condition Progressives and Conservatives demand compliance with authoritarians while libertarians insist that all interactions be voluntary.
This pits libertarianism against both Progressivism and Conservativism. And to the extent that libertarianism is anarchist it pits libertarians against all forms of statism as well."
Garry Reed

"Government is a masterpiece of corporate cynicism, propaganda perfection and people control. It was not created for the people, by the people nor of the people. It was created or at least evolved for the power and benefit of the elite and their politicians and bureaucrats. Government is not haphazard and bungling. It does everything with careful calculation for the benefit of government and the concealment of its fraud upon the people. It plays one economic class against another, one race against another, and it prostitutes the intellectual elite to conceal the nature of government and its purpose."
Bob Livingston

"Look at this from AOC’s [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] point of view. She doesn’t just get $200,000 a year plus massive benefits. That’s chicken feed. But lucrative speaking fees, director’s fees, consulting fees, emoluments from the inevitable Ocasio-Cortez Foundation, multimillion-dollar book deals, and sweetheart investment deals. Not counting undisclosed bribes. She’ll be worth $100 million in no time, like Clinton and Obama.
That’s not even the best part. She’ll be idealized, lionized, and apotheosized by an adoring public. The media will hang on her every word. That’s pretty rich for a stupid, evil dingbat. Other young socialist idealists will try – and succeed – in replicating her success. Congress will increasingly be filled with her clones.
Frankly, at this point, resistance is futile."
Doug Casey

"So let’s get this straight, the coproach infestations that appear to have a license to kill with no repercussions have no obligation whatsoever to protect the very subjects they forcibly extract their salaries and equipment from to lord over like an occupation army. Yet these same armed Leninists and their Chief mouthpieces constantly talk about the new disarmament schemes so their well-fed (most obese 'profession' in America) uniformed thugs can go home at the end of their shift. By the way, police have always been overweight."
Bill Buppert

"The right-wing totalitarians (Nazis, white supremacists, and others) have not remade American law or justice. The left-wing totalitarians have been far more successful in remaking law, justice, ethics, language and the culture. They are far more successful in worming their way into universities and education. They are far more successful in gaining the sympathies of blocs of Americans via identity politics and via advocating equality. The successes of the leftists in creating totalitarianism in America and other countries like Canada and Great Britain are becoming more and more destructive of freedom and other values."
Michael Rozeff

"Generals always fight the last war, and politics is no different. We all tend to see the current political climate in terms of old and familiar divisions, long-faded alliances, and obsolete rhetoric. We all cling to the comfortable ideology and influences that help us make sense of a chaotic world. As one commenter recently put it, liberal Baby Boomers still think it’s 1968 and conservative Baby Boomers still think it’s 1985. Generation X and Millennials will exhibit the same blinders. It may be disheartening to keep fighting what should be a long-settled battle against socialism, but today we have no other choice."
Jeff Deist

"Here’s a question for Progressive philosophers—if any there be. Since we can all choose our 'gender' now, why can’t we also select our age and race? And if our decisions flatly contradict reality, so what?"
Becky Akers

"Trump and the U.S. national-security establishment have used ISIS to justify the stationing of those 2000 troops in Syria. But it’s been a lie from the beginning. The real reason those troops are there is to attempt to achieve regime change in Syria, just like they got regime change in Iraq. That’s ultimately what those four Americans died for—regime change, which is the same thing as dying for nothing. That’s because the U.S. government has no business engaging in the business of regime change. It is not a legitimate role of the U.S. government to be deciding who should be in power in foreign countries and engaging in actions to buttress or remove foreign regimes."
Jacob Hornberger

"The USA is economically a disaster because the tax rate fluctuates depending on who wins the election. This is what is wrong with Democracy insofar as it allows the majority to exploit the minority be it in taxes or even religion crafting criminal laws to enforce religious beliefs."
Martin Armstrong

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:

Party A performs a service and Party B pays them money in exchange for that service in a completely voluntary transaction. Both parties are pleased and no state initiated violence or coercion has occurred.

Such an action will drive any Maoist crazy.

In their mind, anyone who wants to send rockets into space also wants to send nukes.

But then, you would have to actually have nukes, wouldn’t you?

Meanwhile, the disinformation and war mongering campaign continues, led by morons like this.

Are there any examples in history where threats and “confrontation” brought “peace?”

And I don't consider one party surrendering to threats and coercion as "peace."

But they still manage achieve record debt.

And The Emperor gets chumped.

Look for another trillion dollar boondogle to intervene in an area of life that is none of DC’s business.

The fact that this testing was done within spittin’ distance of China is just ah…eh…a…you know…coincidence!

If they can’t find a “crime” that was committed, believe me, they’ll make one up.

They call it “humanitarian aid” but they’re setting up in Columbia to try to get this “aid” across the border. Expect tensions and eventually violence, which will spark calls for US troops.

They use crafty lawyer language to downplay her obvious crimes. “Gross negligence” becomes “extremely careless.”

“Nothing to see here, folks. Now move along.”

He wants just enough troops to be a “stabilizing force” within a “safe zone.”

Of course, that “stabilizing force” is just a trip wire. When they’re inevitably attacked, back go the thousands of troops that had left.

Keep Fear Alive!

Is there a more “unreasonable search and seizure” than this?

“Having already used surveillance technology to render the entire American populace potential suspects, DNA technology in the hands of government will complete our transition to a suspect society in which we are all merely waiting to be matched up with a crime.”

Prepare to pay more for that new Toyota you had your eye on.

The Orange Lord declares it a critical matter of “national security.”

Shiites and Sunni-al-CIA da (who have hated each other’s guts for centuries) are now working together to take down The Great Satan.

Do these clowns realize the millions of sane people who are laughing at them?

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:

"What happened to those Catholic high school students from Kentucky who had been to the March for Life, who wore those MAGA hats, is only the latest—and perhaps the most scandalous and searing—example of this climate of venom and unconcealed hatred. And it is not a hatred that emits from our folks, not from the 'deplorables,' but from that 'other America' that feels threatened by the 'natives'—threatened by those of us on the giant fly-over plantation between the million dollar mansions surrounded by walls in Silicon Valley and the paneled million dollar board rooms on Wall Street where the international globalists gather to plot the future of the world: a world enmeshed in slogans about 'the fruits of democracy' and 'equal rights,' where 'racism' and 'sexism' will finally be banished….but where, in fact, the very contrary will exist, where democracy will have become a totalitarian dystopia a thousand times worse than what George Orwell envisioned in his phantasmagoric novel Nineteen Eighty Four."
Boyd Cathey

"It is entirely possible that the US is capable of functioning like a normal nation and simply defending its own shores and sustaining itself without interfering in world affairs. It is entirely possible that the threat everyone imagines of some foreign power stepping in as the unipolar dominator should America vacate that role is the product of fearful imaginings with no bearing on reality and a fundamental misunderstanding of humanity. It is entirely possible that we are capable of creating a world where nobody dominates anybody, and no iron-fisted world leader of any kind is needed. Either way, the train we’re on is headed for a brick wall, so we’ve now got nothing to lose by stepping off."
Caitlin Johnstone

"The free market, individualism, personal liberty, personal responsibility, hard work, free speech – the values of western civilization – are being washed away, everywhere. But it’s hard to defend them, because the argument for them is intellectual, economic, and historical. While the mob, the capita censi, the 'head count' as the Romans called them, is swayed by emotions. They feel, they don’t think. Arguments are limited to Twitter feeds. Or 30-second TV sound bites."
Doug Casey

"Individuality can’t be achieved by means that destroy individual decision rights. The Democratic Socialists do not understand that their vision is self-contradictory, destroying what it sets out to create.
This flaw is joined by a second. They have no vision of freedom of choice in governance or competition in governance. They picture 'the economy', 'the government', 'a democratic community' and 'our socioeconomic order' being replaced by another one. They imagine only single units that are large-scale aggregates. They fail to imagine diversity at these high levels of aggregation. They fail to envision competition, and freedom of individuals cannot be enhanced without such competition.
The latter flaw is joined by a third. The word 'democratic' is their magic wand by which all is made right. Democratic control of economy and government is their aim, and whatever this is, it’s supposedly productive of individuality. Democratic control of economy is inconsistent with both individual decision rights and an economy with decision-making that satisfies people’s wants, the latter two being indissolubly linked."
Michael Rozeff

"We are, each of us, alone. And this is the first law of masculinity. And it is the most important law. Your value is equal to the value which you bring to the tribe. We are not equal. You are not special. Respect is earned, not given. Your brothers will not love you unconditionally for who you are, just being yourself. They will criticise you, push you to your limits, bring out the best in you, and give you their respect when earned. And this isn’t shocking at all. This is common knowledge to any man. Your childhood is over. The boy is dead. It’s time to be a man for the rest of your life."
Jack Donovan

"Most Americans are under the false belief that the U.S. government is an agent of good in the world and Federal agencies want to protect citizens from harm. But history is rife with examples of government action ostensibly to 'help the people' resulting in privation, destruction, death and turmoil. Anyone who has truly studied the history of governments around the world has seen that the elected class — with very few exceptions — is populated by a psychopathic mix of destroyers and seekers of wealth and power. They pay little mind to the consequences of their actions. What is relevant to them is their glorification, gratification and security at the seat of power."
Bob Livingston

"Conservatives…are not serious. They have no animating spirit. They don’t much talk about liberty or property or markets or opportunity. They don’t mean what they say about the Constitution, they won’t do a thing to limit government, they won’t touch entitlements or defense spending, they won’t abolish the Department of Education or a single federal agency, they won’t touch abortion laws, and they sure won’t give up their own socialist impulses. Trumpism, though not conservative and thoroughly non-intellectual, drove a final stake through the barely beating heart of Right intellectualism, from the Weekly Standard to National Review. Conservatism today is incoherent, both ideologically and tactically incapable of countering the rising tide of socialism."
Jeff Deist

"So here is where it leaves you: you have an Offal Office occupant whose roots are that of a crony capitalist in the Mussolini style of state corporatism melded to a hybrid Northeastern progressive steeped in the soft communist marinade of a New Yorker. Once you grok this, all of his behavior and spinelessness on weapons ownership makes sense."
Bill Buppert

"Trump Derangement Syndrome triggered a huge swath of human cholesterol into an immediate frenzy. Well, let the blowback begin. Say what you want about Trump folks, but they fight back with both guns drawn, and are relentless in engaging the lies of their vicious and psychotic enemies on the Left. We could use some of that spirit in the libertarian camp."
Karen De Coster

"Rep.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is guilty of promoting stupid policy she doesn’t fully understand, the consequences of which will have very negative consequences for Americans of all types. She is deserving of public ridicule and in a better world would be soundly voted out for her severe ignorance.
She should not, however, be treated as a beltway outlier.
Her complete ignorance of economics simply means she fits in perfectly with the rest of Washington and most legislators around the world." 
Tho Bishop

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:

In perfect communist fashion, she makes it up to serve her depraved and thieving goals.

It’s becoming very difficult to keep up….

Meanwhile, the children keep dying and dying.

“Toe the party line or we will destroy you.”

Ask the Covington Kids what that’s like.

It’s bad enough when these Goblin Gangsters treat kids as political props.

Does that mean we get to vote on whether we want warmer or colder climate? Or does a Committee of Commissars control the thermostat?

The only things missing are the unicorns and fairy dust.

And those “other people” are individuals from the Gangster’s own party!

Isn’t a crime to be forcibly ruled by such a deranged creature?

You can cover up just about any crime or nefarious activity by employing a “green” component to your deceiving action- even when that activity is killing.

The War Whores have a sweet deal, don’t they? They’re hired to develop a technology. Yet, when they fail to deliver that technology, they still get paid!

Why should they when there is absolutely no incentive to do so?  

“Ooops, we lost a few $Trillion dollars. We’ll just ask for more in the next budget!”

And they always get it.

“It’s your fault, you evil, privileged white people. Pay up!”

And not to put a price on life, but how many millions of dollars worth of missiles did they use just to kill fifteen “fighters?”

They can’t beat their Taliban enemy but they can knock off some civilians now and then to look they’re accomplishing something.

They’re promoting more “catch and release” where the “release” usually turns out to be permanent.

And if you bring a child (anyone’s child, apparently) you don’t even have to do that!

He’s doing all he can to support his Terrorist Saudi Overlords.

Were you aware that such a thing even existed? So much for the value of “spending caps.”

"One U.S. defense official pushed back on the notion that OCO is a ‘slush fund,’ saying it is and has always been a ‘creative way around the budget caps’
-both for defense and non-defense spending."

‘It’s like a steam release valve,’ the official said. ‘You’ve got these [caps] that’s pressurized everything, and OCO allows you’ to relieve that pressure.”

Government gangsters have unlimited creative abilities to deceive and loot.

They snuck this by you during The Fake Government Shutdown when no one was paying attention.

It’s not enough that he chooses to be a undernourished vegan. He wants to legislatively force you to do so, as well. And he does it all under the cowardly cover of “the public good and the public welfare.”

 “…it isn’t designed as a deterrent against another country launching its nukes; it’s designed to be used.  This is the weapon that could make the previously ‘unthinkable’ thinkable.”

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:

"I have no idea what crazed argument lies behind the claim that for a white to be in blackface is racist and hurtful. Why in the world would any racist want to appear as a black that he allegedly despises?"
Paul Craig Roberts

"My main reason for skipping the State of the Union is the media circus that creates this phony pomp and circumstance around a political non-event. I don’t want to watch a room full of elected narcissists awkwardly golf clapping at each other for two hours."
Greg Guenthner

"Remember, corporatist, globalist elites and their partners in government want you to think that all rights, all economic activity and all power flows from government to you. That you must go to college, learn the ways of the state, and be sent forth from the Ivory Towers as a good little globalist. The opposite is true. We are the producers. Government steals the fruits of it from us first by creating fiat money, which must go through the government where those in power receive it and use it before it is debased through inflation, and stolen from us again via taxation."
Bob Livingston

"These most recent spasms of support for the deadly ideology of socialism remind us that progressives aren’t kidding. They may not fully understand what socialism means, but they fully intend to bring it about. Single-payer health care, 'free' education, wealth redistribution schemes, highly progressive income taxes, wealth taxes, gun bans, and radical curbs on fossil fuels are all on the immediate agenda. They will do this quickly if possible, incrementally if they have to (see, again, the 20th century). They will do it with or without popular support, using legislatures, courts and judges, supranational agencies,university indoctrination, friendly media, or whatever political, economic, or social tools it takes (including de-platforming and hate speech laws). This is not paranoia; all of this is openly discussed. And say what you will about progressivism, it does have a central if false ethos: egalitarianism."
Jeff Deist

"Wouldn’t it be nice if everybody had a job paying at least $15 an hour, free schooling, housing was a basic human right, free medical, free food, and 100% green energy? I know it doesn’t sound evil – it just sounds stupid. But it’s actually both."
Doug Casey

"No national plan of energy production and use can possibly be rational. It’s an economic impossibility for such a plan, even if it ran to several thousand pages as such laws are likely to do, to arrive at goals, returns and costs that assure profitable projects that end up making people happier. The planners can never have the requisite knowledge. That’s spread far and wide and no central planners ever know what it is or where it is. Making people happier by supplying their wants is done through market discovery spurred by profit-seeking decisions. Washington gets fed and fed efficiently and it’s not because anyone on Capitol Hill planned it and commanded it. It’s because of capitalism, and that includes freely made decisions that are made to seek profit. Planners are politically-motivated. They are subject to non-market incentives that do not lead to making goods that make us people happier."
Michael Rozeff

"Regardless of Marx’s intentions, his doctrines spurred perpetual dread in hundreds of millions of victims. But it was criminally naive to expect happy results from any system that bestowed boundless power on politicians. Two hundred years after Marx’s birth, never forget that a philosophy that begins by idealizing government will end by idealizing subjugation."
James Bovard

"The theme of Good Guys fighting Bad Guys resonates with a population that has been raised for generations on Hollywood films featuring a handsome action hero emerging victorious after a ninety-minute struggle and karate kicking an ugly villain off a cliff before kissing the pretty girl, but it doesn’t accurately reflect the reality we actually live in. Our world is dominated by extremely powerful people who are motivated not out of interest in good or evil but a drive toward power and profit which is completely disinterested in morality of any kind, and the empires they build for themselves have their foundations on the backs of ordinary people who are just trying to get by. The majority of those extremely powerful people either live in the United States or have formed alliances with US power structures, and all their agendas in Asia, South America, the Middle East and elsewhere have nothing to do with 'protecting democracy' or being a 'force of good', and everything to do with amassing more power."
Caitlin Johnstone

"Not a single presstitute has ever asked why it is only off limits to criticize Jews and Israel. How can it be that alone among the peoples of the world Israelis are so fragile that they are utterly destroyed by criticism? How can it be that the story of the holocaust is so shaky that it must not be examined? Do the Jewish people, especially the Israeli component, really want to be perceived as so weak that criticism destroys them? Do Jews want to be known as a people who cannot survive criticism? Why do the Jewish lobbies advertise and promote Jewish vulnerability to words? How can a people capable of standing up to bullets be slayed by words?"
Paul Craig Roberts

"[I]f experience teaches us anything at all it teaches us this: that a good politician, under democracy, is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar. His very existence, indeed, is a standing subversion of the public good in every rational sense. He is not one who serves the common weal; he is simply one who preys upon the commonwealth."
H.L. Mencken

"The Second Amendment is dead if it even survived the beginning of the twentieth century when state after state, especially in the south started regulating the fuck out of firearms possession by private citizens while ratcheting up the armories of government employees as exemplified by the Federal Prohibition agents and the infamous beating and bloodying of thousands of WWI pensioners during the Bonus March in 1932.
The aforementioned list of legislative and judicial nonsense in concert with the establishment of sadistic and ill-tempered agencies like the BATFE and all Federal 'law enforcement' agencies cements the case that the 2A is merely an inconvenience to the zookeepers presently lording over the host of taxpayers living on the vast American plantation. In case you’ve been living in a cave, you will note the tens of thousands of incidents where the 19,000 law imposement organizations peppering the landscape maimed and killed thousands with government guns."

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:

And they didn’t even bother to tell them it was coming.

He sees this as a fair exchange- Impoverishing your children to feed The DC Beast.

She claims it’s your “responsibility.”

And the fact that they are crossing illegally?

Well, that’s just okay with her.

Her typical egalitarian confusion also prevents her from seeing that the taxation and regulations she creates is the theft.

The “rules” pertaining to capitalism are property rights and the rule of law. This Faux-Squaw has already articulated she has no respect for those “rules.”

Why? Because they militarily protect their own backyard. This creep is not aware that the Pacific Ocean is not Lake Amurrica.

“Do it for Allah!”

“Free hijabs for all!”

So now we’re just 10% from financial slavery. Aren’t Somalis adamantly against slavery?

He’s doing all he can to promote a disastrous civil war in a country that has suffered enough already.

They want to “legally” put nuclear missiles at the borders of Russia and China.

Years of death and failure can only be remedied by…..even more years of death and failure.

You’re “privileged” if you understand what type of sex organ resides between your legs. The mentally ill, reality-optional crowd seems unrelenting in their quest for acceptance.

Don’t you consider it a crime to be ruled by confirmed, deranged idiots?

If that same leader had given a comparable threat to the DC Emperor, his country would be a nuclear wasteland by the time you read this.

“No withdrawal, just a smaller number of occupiers. We need to protect our favorite Middle Eastern Terrorist State.  Oh yea, and to keep an eye on those Evil Persians.”

“Maybe someday……”

“The training is essential to ensure service members are fully trained and prepared to defend our nation overseas.”

Our “nation” is now “overseas?” Since when?
Did I miss the memo?

You kids should starve yourselves and dress in rags like good, little Maoists.

Gaia will be pleased.

One can easily prove that this collective has been socialist since at least 1913. And that degree of socialism has increased steadily since.

But as long as The Orange Lord repeats his sweet lies about “walls” and “greatness,” the Trump Chumps and loyalists will be happy.

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:

Where the federal government is concerned, the status quo is a myth. There is no rolling back the clock and returning the United States to the vision of the Founders. There is no way the put the genie back into the bottle. The federal government is on a course that will see every grievance multiplied and every ill intensified over time until every pretense of being a federative republic is finally abandoned and any illusion of a hopeful return to the way it was “supposed to be” is shattered. It is the natural order of things. 
Daniel Miller

You see, last year our Climate Hucksters told us a run of warm weather proved the planet is warming, which means we all have to give up our freedoms to a centralized government in order to save the planet. BUT… a run of frigid weather this year also proves the planet is warming and we all have to give up our freedoms to a centralized government in order to save the planet.
So no matter what happens, no matter how cold or warm or temperate it is, everything proves Global Warming is fer real.
You see, no matter what happens, no matter what the weather looks like, no matter how false their predictions turn out to be, no matter often they act as though they don’t believe in Global Warming, the Climate Swindlers still scream See! See! Toldjaso! — and almost always do it from a wildly expensive base of operations on the same coast they claim will soon be underwater.
John Nolte

Democracy is more a state of mind that evolves when the people and the state become one. I call it benevolent totalitarianism. Those who clamor for democracy clamor for their own chains — members of the ruling class. Note that in all authoritarian collectivist systems in which there are purportedly no class differences, the ruling class always get the plums while everyone else gets the crumbs and chains.
Bob Livingston

Socialism undermined the Roman Empire. It can and will destroy America too. A Green New Deal is another knife in the body, causing more loss of blood. Eventual death is predicted unless these attacks of socialism cease, the bleeding is staunched and the body allowed to heal.
Michael Rozeff

The whole politically correct [PC] culture has spread from universities, legislatures, entertainers, and the media into mainstream culture. Now, it’s reached the top of major corporations; it seems they all have “diversity officers” to ensure whites are put in their proper place. And if a corporation is involved in anything that impresses the morality police as even mildly non-PC, they don’t just abjectly apologize. They roll over on their backs like whipped dogs and wet themselves. It makes you sympathetic with Vanderbilt, when he said, “The public be damned.”
Doug Casey

Repeal that welfare law, and you will soon see a change in their manners. St. Monday and St. Tuesday, will soon cease to be holidays. Six days shalt thou labor, though one of the old commandments long treated as out of date, will again be looked upon as a respectable precept; industry will increase, and with it plenty among the lower people; their circumstances will mend, and more will be done for their happiness by inuring them to provide for themselves, than could be done by dividing all your estates among them.
Benjamin Franklin

Never mind the Scandinavian countries in question insist they are not socialist, never mind the atrocities of Stalin or Mao or Pol Pot, and never mind the overwhelming case made by Ludwig von Mises and others against central economic planning. Without private owners, without capital at risk, without prices, and especially without profit and loss signals, economies quickly become corrupted and serve only the political class. Nicol├ís Maduro feasts while poor Venezuelans eat dogs, but of course this isn’t “real” socialism.
History and theory don’t matter to socialists because they imagine society can be engineered. The old arguments and historical examples simply don’t apply: even human nature is malleable, and whenever our stubborn tendencies don’t comport with socialism’s grand plans a “social construct” is to blame.

It’s okay for the US to continue to interfere in the political affairs of foreign nations while it would be an unforgivable and outrageous “act of war” for a nation like Russia to do the exact same thing, because the US is countering the interests of the Bad Guys while Russia is countering the interests of the Good Guys. Who decided who the Good Guys and Bad Guys are in this argument? The US.
America’s constant military interventionism, election interference and other nastiness are painted as Good Things done by Good Guys to fight the Bad Guys. The argument, when you boil it right down, is that if America wasn’t constantly starting wars, invading sovereign nations, staging coups, sponsoring proxy conflicts, arming terrorists, bombing civilians, torturing people, implementing starvation sanctions on impoverished populations, pointing nuclear weapons everywhere, spying on us all with a globe-spanning Orwellian surveillance network, interfering in foreign elections, and patrolling the skies with flying death robots, the Bad Guys might win.

The social engineers mistake statistics for people's lives and people's lives for their laboratory. One-size-fits-all government programs may move the statistics in a direction that pleases them, but statistics inevitably hide the individual winners and individual losers those programs create. Our lives are not numerical; they cannot be summed up.

The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.

White + Trump = privileged + “racist.” That’s the common core math.
