“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

― Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn

Obey or else.

That may not be the meaning of life but it is the simplest explanation of all government.

Note that the only objective is abject surrender or whatever pain can be inflicted on the resister after the notions of non-compliance are made clear by the victim.

We have all heard the bromides and axioms about government being like fire, a dangerous servant and the usual platitudes about limiting the beast. Library shelves groan under the weight of hundreds of thousands of scribes, pundits and authors opining on how to temper the monster, how to steer the brute force in positive directions, how to control the perverse incentives that lead to the oceans of blood that seem to be both the birthing and death experiences of nations and states.

Over thousands of years, humans have wrestled with the problem of politically organizing society along peaceful and violent means and discover that the latter is a default of behavior.  Ignore all the library definitions; politics is a death cult. Ironically, the populations cry to have a defense against the predators among them and end up with the most empathetically crippled human beings in charge whose power at the larger level dwarfs the petty criminal excesses that drove the people to urge bondage upon themselves in the first place.

We keep the bad people at bay by putting the worst people in charge. Rinse and repeat. Over and over and over.

Whether the hijacking of the uneasy canton peace of pre-1791 North America by the Founding Lawyers shackling the country with the Constitution, the aggressive Westward absorption through aboriginal holocaust, the defeat of the Second American revolution in 1865 or the inauguration of the US predatory state abroad in 1893 and the continual war on the world that followed, you have been lied to.

Civics class is government obedience training and the metastasizing police state that emerged from the end of WWI has not stopped for a moment. Once the government got a taste of the national security state after 1916, there was no stopping it. Every war strengthened the state as it perversely screamed for domestic shackles and increasing surveillance and terror to fight…terror.

War is the health of the state as Bourne said and the mandarins in DC decided to take the war footing to the domestic front and the Volstead Amendment was born right on the heels of the income tax gestated in 1913.  A powerful hybrid brew was concocted: the power to tax not only individuals over the borders of states, in essence, nationalizing the tax cattle but using the era of Prohibition to weaponize the war on tax evasion and create a national policing organization in the Treasury Department which would expand enormously over time and have a corrosive effect on the relationship between the flock and its masters. The Treasury Department inspired the creation of legions of alphabet agencies to lord over the subjects captured in the tax jurisdiction known as the USA.

Much like the silly Newsweek cover from 2009 that declared we are all socialists now nearly a generation after the death of the USSR, it becomes readily apparent that all the current US citizens are simply host animals to the Federal government as it attaches all manner of remora-like teeth to every aspect of human transaction in the former Land of the Free (prior to 1791).

I am hard-pressed to think of any aspect of the human condition that cannot be tracked down for a regulation in the massive government libraries where shelves are groaning under the weight of decades of psychopathic scribblings of the drones who comprise the Sovietized nanny-state we live in today. One could surmise that since the Age of the Lincoln, the state has proven the lie that is the limited government myth that has so permeated the fantasies of the Teabags, the Busheviks and neoconservatives in recent memory.

Obama’s centerpiece legislation in the “Affordable Care Act” has certainly been a monstrously clever scheme to collapse the private medical system and bring the dream of a single payer health care system dominated by the government to fruition. The presstitutes and their sharecroppers in the massive Free Shit Army will rush like terrified recently freed slaves to the government plantation owners to beg for more and they will get it good and hard to paraphrase the inimitable and eerily prescient HL Mencken.

Plenty of other scribblers in the blogosphere have commented endlessly of the terrifying and relentlessly stupid aspects of this scheme. Much like the usual suspects begging for the government to nationalize this or that, no such wholesale confiscation need occur if the entire tentacled apparatus of fascist regulation and taxation is firmly in place.

The monster hesitates in DC when the police imperium in the former swamp now known as DC finds its Praetorians choosing restraint over domination when the subjects of the tax jurisdiction known as the United States remove barricades from an open memorial to American planetary predation to deposit them at the fencing around the White House where the denizens of the Offal Office plan and scheme to steal more wealth and make more war.

This was not simply restraint but maybe a primitive acknowledgement between predators of different stripes respecting the bloodlust of the other. Not only was this not representative of compassion on the part of the police apparatus in DC but simply professional courtesy to another foreign branch of the policing disease.

If the protesters had moved on more judicious liberty targets like the IRS or the Clown Palace at Capitol Hill, the police drones would have reacted more protectively in defense of their primary clients, the rulers.

The reptile brain in the various policing gangs such as DC Metro, Capital Hill and Park Service simply realized that the veterans visiting the War Memorials were kindred spirits to the vicious and sadistic mindset that animates 99 percent of all 19,000 police agencies across the fetid plain. Much like the schizophrenic mental paralysis that cripples the intellect of so many conservatives: the notion that we can wage war on the world but demand restraint at home of the same government that looses the dogs of war. Much like the lunatic Kucinich who espouses praiseworthy goals of stopping the militaristic foreign policy of America cold since its imperial germination in 1893 yet in the same breath he champions the aggressive socialist platform of using the government to violently extract wealth and time from its citizens so the productive support the parasites and looters at gunpoint in the sadistic lottery known as democracy.

You can’t have it both ways. I am pro-life and anti-death penalty and the consistency is in the championing of life over death. I am a non-voter but Ron Paul as opposed to Kucinich represents the best humans have to offer because he wants peace on earth both domestically and abroad. But he is one solitary man in an ocean of elected moral eunuchs whose mantra is to fine, kidnap, cage, maim and kill any human unwilling to obey as they march us to fiscal oblivion in the pursuit of the perfect police state.

An unarmed woman was gunned down in or near her vehicle today in the bosom of DC and her child in the car with her was apparently unharmed except for the theft of her mother’s life by the usual armed and badged suspects who bring so much horror and calamity to daily American life. The woman was caught in the cross-hairs of the terror state that has emerged to fight terrorism by using terrorism. Terrorism is politically motivated violence against non-combatants and innocents which fits the political science description of what all statist government does and the tactics employed by its uniformed gangs deployed across the fruited plain to deliver the real war of terror.

After over a decade of hundreds of billions spent to protect the rulers from the various hate groups they have created globally through a war on the world that has rumbled almost continuously since 1893, the woman’s death is yet another footnote in the horror novel known as the United States government. Zombies and vampires don’t hold a candle to the death and destruction wielded and threatened daily by the clown cavalcades that comprise the political ruling class in the US. One can see the zombie-like behavior of most government employees and the vampiric behavior of the taxing entities but the carnage and bloodshed is far worse than any horror novelist could dream up on a daily basis. Skeptics should search for police brutality on YouTube which is only the tip of the iceberg of a phenomenon vastly under-reported.

One would think that after a decade of the billions wasted just mentioned and the enormous bureaucracy in Fatherland Security invested with the august task of protecting the ruling elites, vehicle proof barriers and gates would have not been an afterthought but those who deal with government even at the local level start to realize that, at the end of the day, government is simply a deadly collection of adolescent bullies whose only agenda is the maintenance and expansion of their power over others and the continuation of a very clever money-laundering scheme to vacuum others people’s wealth and resources at the point of a gun into their coffers.

One must also take note that once again, the very well-fed badged warlords of the constabulary most likely reacted the way they did because that what they are paid and incentivized to do. There will be no wrongful death suit. The child will not grow up with her natural mother. The damage will be paid for by the taxpayers, or more likely their grandchildren, since DC is broke by any private standard of accounting.

The police in Egypt maimed and killed hundreds if not thousands and we will never know the true toll. Armored cars, tanks and all sorts of equipment normally reserved for warfare were used against the civilian population. This is the ultimate mission of all police forces, they are not beholden nor obligated to protect the population they are allegedly there to serve and protect. Police and law enforcement entities are creatures of the state and their first allegiance and loyalty is always to the ruling class that pays their salaries and demands their fealty and obeisance. There is no surprise or mystery here; absent the constabulary, no state can abuse and shred the individual liberties that remain few and far between today.

The military in Egypt has famously never been used to defend the state from external invaders for literally decades.  The primary purpose of the treads on every tank in the Egyptian security force bought and paid for with American taxpayer funds is the lubrication of said machinery with the crushed bodies of the population.

The converse and ultimately obscene notion of officer safety as enshrined in the American police state was on display during the riots in Egypt and the literal evisceration of human beings to ensure that the political machine remains in the hands of those in power. The cops pick a fight with protesters and exercise deadly force to protect themselves from any display of self-defense by their intended victims.

Egypt remains a harbinger of things to come in the United States as police forces become more militarized and bolder in their everyday war on normal citizens day by day. My friend, Carla Gericke, has launched a potent campaign to embarrass the shameless authorities in New Hampshire who seek to have a tank granted to their department to Concord, NH.

Here is a direct quote from the grant request:

“Groups such as the Sovereign Citizens, Free Staters and Occupy New Hampshire are active and present daily challenges. Outside of officially organized groups, several homegrown clusters that are anti-government and pose problems for law enforcement agencies.”

My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy(philosophically understood, meaning abolition of control not whiskered men with bombs). The most improper job of any man is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all who seek the opportunity.”

– J.R.R Tolkien

Amidst all of the race-pimping, hate-mongering, media-whoring, collectivist anti-gun, anti self-defense crusading, boundless breathtaking ignorance, and general awfulness that was the Zimmerman Affair,  the motto, bellum omnium contra omnes rang out in my head like a shot. A war of every man against every man; neighbor versus neighbor.

I heard it crystal clear over the past couple of weeks. It was painfully apparent embedded in the chants of, “stand your ground is legalized murder!” And, “Stop more George Zimmermans; repeal stand your ground!”

There is a sinister assumption smuggled into the premise of the government supremacist’s argument, and that assumption is this — without the Almighty Leviathan State everyone would be murdering, raping, and looting each other. I’d like to tease out this assumption in a little more depth, and focus on what is actually being said, if only implicitly. The State worshipper, the one who bows to the absolute authority of their God, is saying this —

“Oh, mighty omnipotent State, while we recognize your supreme sovereignty, and happily submit to your righteous rule, we believe, with all due unwavering respect, that you may have made a slight error in all of your infinite wisdom and judgement. It seems that you, the stalwart of all that is good and moral in this world, may have accidentally overlooked a safeguard that keeps us, your unthinking, unquestioning, unchallenging, ever devoted flock, from randomly murdering each other. The fact that this law wasn’t even sighted by the murderer’s feeble defense notwithstanding.”

“We fear that without the abolition of these laws, we will resort back the brutish, and beastish state of nature you found us in, and most graciously rescued us from. We do not desire to return to the perpetual state of war from which you delivered us. Therefore, we, as a collective, have come to the obvious and necessary conclusion that we cannot be trusted with our individual self-defense. It would be most wise of you to repeal all laws that condone the abhorrent practice of self-defense, and we will gladly, and dutifully, relinquish all responsibility in that regard.”

It may be a tired saw that politicians lie but the truth to the notion bears examination.  The libertarian enterprise outside of the Libertarian Party apparatus is essentially a non-political undertaking. It is trying to tease out and liquidate the political form of organizing societies. The freed market, spontaneous order and voluntary nature of the anarchist society means that compromise cannot be reached via initiated violence so what has become the easiest route to a societal forcing function cannot be leveraged.

Collectivism is based on deception, disinformation and lies; it has to be.  No sober humans in their right and moral minds would countenance the casual brutality and bloody-mindedness that is beneath the surface of all contemporary political rhetoric and action.

We often hear of the National Socialist and Communist uses of the Big Lie to keep populations under the boot and the self-congratulatory tone of modern democratic supporters in the West of the superiority of their societal constructs.  All sheer poppycock and a rhetorical shield to hide the fist and the lash. The very fundamental elements and public drapery of anthems, flag waving and political speeches are merely props and theatrical devices used to make the pig look more handsome and the smell of offal more appealing.

Why do you think every modern politician except Ron Paul tailors their speeches and bromides to the demographics of their audiences?

Make no mistake, when you cheer for the people of the American Revolution, you are cheering for traitors and criminals. They broke the law, because freedom is always illegal.”

– Larken Rose

It is truly something that is worth celebrating. While the masses of people in this country are lost in a sea of red, white, and blue, celebrating an event they don’t really even understand or comprehend, I’ll be celebrating something else; something that harkens back to the real meaning of the day — acts of defiance.

Every year, just before Independence Day, people who would otherwise claim to be law-abiding citizens, break the law. They seek to defy the laws that prohibit them from owning and using fireworks. They venture just outside of the political boundaries that have banned the use of fireworks except for those who have sought the proper channels; have applied for the correct licensing; and have paid for the privilege of recreating an act of which men were in open rebellion against their government.  The irony of that situation is enough to make any freedom lover’s stomach churn in discontent.

It is these individual acts of rebellion that bring a smile to my face. And even though the true spirit of freedom is only smoldering in this country, it has not been extinguished. How do I know this? Because men are breaking the law to reenact an event where men were breaking the law. Of course, there is a vast difference in degree, but the principle is the same, and that principle is individual nullification of law. I’m not too sure what drives these law-abiders to break the law on such a massive scale days before Independence Day. It may be they do not want to be told that they cannot celebrate the successes of their forebears in a way they see fit, or it may be just market forces driving the event. In either case, it is certainly something I can agree with. However, I do not think it to exclusively be the latter, because not all smugglers are in it for the money. Some of them smuggle just to acquire fireworks for personal use. Some of them even take their children on their cross-border law breaking excursions.

Some of you may say, “well, they’re just smuggling fireworks, no real trouble could come of it.” In most states that have outlawed fireworks, the penalties can be just as stiff as getting caught with drugs. Further, these smugglers must evade a myriad of state defenses if they are to be successful in their smuggling endeavors. Agents of the state have been trained to catch these smugglers, and they will employ a plethora of tactics to try and stop them. Police will hunt the borders looking for vehicles that quickly run back and forth through jurisdictions. The thin blue line will also band together with their bordering state brethren to help facilitate the further fleecing of these rebels. In the states where fireworks are legal, police will prowl the parking lots of the pyrotechnics purveyors and dutifully jot down the license plates of the out-of-staters. They will then radio in the plate numbers of these law breakers where they will be quickly apprehended as soon as they cross back over the border.  The penalties for these crimes against the state are more than any law-abiding citizen would usually risk in their day-to-day lives yet they risk it for Independence Day.

Pulling out the Big Guns Against Gun Control! The International Micro-Managers of the world (whoever they are) know one thing and know it well. Gun Control is people control; and social engineering of diabolical proportions. The Rothschild money master once mused that the early British Empire on which the sun never set was indeed controlled by him through his cunning tactics of monetary manipulation. Why change a tactic if it works everytime? Either do all of your planning in secret (Jekyll Island comes to mind) or if it must be done in the eye of the public, make certain to weave a large web of confusion and disarray under the guise of ordered thought.  Through public means, you will exploit the tragedies committed by ‘lone gunmen’, as witnessed at Sandy Hook, Aurora Colorado, Fort Hood, Columbine and the like. You will demonize private, voluntary Militias through the ‘April 19ths’ of the world. (Branch Davidians Waco, Oklahoma City Bombing) The actual Waco Siege ended on April 19th. No one dare call it Conspiracy. Implement a War on Terror and the machine is in motion. Warrantless searches are the norm now in a land once run under the soft guise of the Constitution. But… American guns still stand in the way of the central planners’ complete domination and subsequent gelding. Notice that these clueless, gunless hippies love civil liberties, but the hate the very thing which repels those that threaten civil liberties most effectively? The modern, personal semi-auto weapon system. (With a mountain of ammo to boot!) Most nations around the world ‘enjoy’ living in numb societies where guns and ownership of such is either controlled or outlawed altogether. Anything close to what we experience here in America exists in Switzerland, Poland, Finland and Serbia. Outside of Europe is Yemen. Gun ownership is under attack full-force here in the States. I mean, how does one compete against the 24 hour a day barrage of misinformation coupled with tragedies and gobbled up by loud-mouthed people on pharmaceutical drugs in a mind-numbed state?

My father in law said that a ‘lie’ gets halfway around the world while the ‘truth’ is still getting his boots on.

A controlled man is an enslaved man and we should always be at least mildly suspicious to not buy into every story, especially when they involve sweeping measures which threaten the Liberty of every individual Iiving in the USSA.

But…. the battle’s not over yet. We need a few loud-mouthed people to mobilize and refute these untruths in guerrilla warfare fashion. And before you decline my request, don’t think that NRA, GOA and JPFO are going to do it for you. The NRA is usually dumb-founded and at a loss as to what to say in a televised debate. Two ideal poster children are Ted Nugent and Larry Pratt, but who else? Do we honestly think that TWO men are going to change the minds of people? Our beloved gun rights’ groups are like cops. When you need them, they are never there and probably at the donut shop.

We are in intellectual warfare and this requires tremendous mental stamina to compete with the numerous talking heads of life. Let’s investigate the lies purported by the collectivists. While there are several, let’s just focus on the biggies.

Lie number 1 : The Constitution says the 2nd Amendment protects the Militia. Truth : ….the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The ‘people’ is not the ‘militia’. While I personally would argue gun ownership on moral grounds, I am not against arguing a the RKBA as delineated by this fine, yet flawed, document.

Lie number 2 : The average citizen does not need a high capacity semi-automatic rifle. Truth : Yes we do because it serves as an invisible fence to foreign and domestic enemies. It is nigh impossible to turn America in to a total police state with this ever present threat in the hands of the individual. Law enforcement does not get a blank check to run amuck and kick doors in at random in Nazi-esque / Soviet fashion. Another is hit probability, multiple attackers (L.A. Riots, Hurricane Katrina) and ballistic unpredictability. Do these know-nothings understand that in condition black, suspects do not feel the rounds hit and therefore, keep attacking?

Lie number 3 : Gun control keeps guns out of the hands of criminals and saves childrens’ lives. Truth : All real life evidence points to the extreme opposite. Since criminals do not obey mala in se laws, what makes people think that they will obey mala prohibita ones? These are referred to as Disarmed Victim Zones.  A gun-free zone is a Disarmed Victim Zone. The cities that have the most strict gun laws have the highest violent crime and murder rates. Washington D.C. and Chicago, Illinois. Almost forgot Newark, New Jersey. Chances of being a victim in Newark? 1 in 84! Guns don’t kill people…

People on SSRIs and Hollywood with guns kill people.

Does the US Constitution affect the design, application, and review of effective strategy?

The Constitution grants monopoly power to the central state to use both the military and militias.  This means that even state National Guards are essentially creatures of the Federal government.

In Article 1:8:

“To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;

To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

To provide and maintain a Navy;

To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;–And

To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”[1]

The Constitution certainly enables strategy but effective strategy is another notion altogether.  One has to know what the grand strategic framework is to determine what the serving strategy is to attain the goals.  The first stage was for the central government in the United States to ensure that so subsidiary political units such as the states had the faintest notion of independence in the use of their military power.  This was proven out only three years after ratification when General Washington marched at the head of a 13,000 man army to quell the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794.
