one web unravels

Since we were paying attention, Christine Blasey Ford’s flimsy fiction trying to destroy Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation had no weight from the start. Rather than ignoring, or ridiculing the claims, The Team used judo to open an investigation “into Ford’s claims”, but freaking out the spiders by not limiting the investigation to the precarious web they wove. To destroy the cobweb, destroy the spider. Spanish proverb Kavenaugh’s SIX previous background checks weren’t enough for the senators who are at risk of appealing their upcoming treason tribunals to the Supreme Court. They were hoping that the stories and accompanying assaults on Brett and his family would get him to quit the Supreme Court path he was on. As disgusting and difficult […]

racing off the cliff

Racial divide is one of the ruling elite’s tools for keeping us fragmented and unable to muster defense against the .01% who run the world to the advantage of everybody OTHER THAN the remaining 99.99%… that is, to theirs. Strong males, independent thinkers, sharp scientists, knowledgeable historians are also among major threats they work to neutralize. But this post is about their racial divide. Suckers fall for it. Sadly the rest of us are outnumbered. Fortunately, the strong, independent, sharp, and knowledgeable are on our side. When it comes to a final tally, those attributes will be more important than being in the majority. In the article excerpted below, Julius makes a lot of great points. I highly recommend clicking […]

blah-blah-blah-gun control-blah-blah-blah

In the middle of all the noise from totalitarian government employees and lamestream media is the latest effort at restricting gun ownership. They never lose sight of their goal to have exclusive rights to lethal force. This argument has been won repeatedly by logic and data, but will never go away as long as there are people who lust for power, and never-ending increases in their power. They are hollow-shelled bullies. Bullies understand force. Nothing else. When met with anything remotely approaching equal force, they are cowards. We must never let them catch us napping. Amidst all the gun control yammering are three essays worth reading. I will give you excerpts and links to them. ——————————- Looking at the “gun […]

2006 Idaho governor candidate debate

Seeing Ron Paul championing my main 2006 campaign theme a decade later inspired me to look for this video. I couldn’t find it at the PBS website, so I uploaded a copy I had saved years ago. Debating in front of television cameras live to a state-wide audience was a terrifying to do, but probably the best performance of my political career. My biggest campaign theme was liberal tax credits for scholarships to private schools equal to a maximum of half what taxpayers spend on government schools. We would save money while liberating education. It was a good idea then. It still is.

Why Did it Have to be … Guns?

by L. Neil Smith Over the past 30 years, I’ve been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I’ve thought about the issue a lot, and it has always determined the way I vote. People accuse me of being a single-issue writer, a single- issue thinker, and a single- issue voter, but it isn’t true. What I’ve chosen, in a world where there’s never enough time and energy, is to focus on the one political issue which most clearly and unmistakably demonstrates what any politician—or political philosophy—is made of, right down to the creamy liquid center. Make no mistake: all politicians—even those […]

what day is it?

July 4th is flags, beer, barbecue and fireworks. What for? All of our lawyers are contracted affiliates of the British Bar Association. Sixty percent of the USofA senators and 43% of our congresscritters are lawyers. British bankers own “our” federal reserve, and, thus complete control of our money. So Brits own our courts, our legislature and our economy. What exactly did the colonists of 1776 win independence from? And about this flag USofA politicians, courts and ENFORCERS of their laws wave around… It is The Flag Of The Admiralty. What exactly are you celebrating?

suppressors

I endured the expensive and long process currently required to gain permission from our rulers to own a sound suppressor for my rifle. Over 9 months and $1,000 for a hundred dollar part that enables your neighbors to go about their business without noise pollution should you choose to sight in or practice with a firearm. Darn near a year for some faceless apparatchik to affix a rubber stamp and signature to my papers. Precious few of us bother. Therefore one person’s shooting is an entire neighborhood’s disturbing the peace. I repurposed a .223 AR-15 rifle into a 300 AAC Blackout, mounted the scope without proper tools, or any experience for that matter, and got help mounting “the can”. […]

redirecting the pro-life effort

I have been an active Libertarian for most of the last 16 years. I have likely been to four score or more meetings of libertarians. Often the discussion moves rapidly over areas of agreement to focus on animated discussions where we do not agree. The pro-life vs pro-choice question is one of the main ones. Nobody wins that argument. Remember, this is a group that eschews existing rules and rulers in favor of philosophically proper and theoretically pure. No pre-existing guidelines carry weight in these arguments. For us there is no agreed upon role for government in this question. That means neither paying for abortions nor monitoring and controlling womens’ reproductive systems. Those who would use government force to ban […]
