Publisher’s Note: I can’t disagree with Trump on any reduction or nullification of any agency. Gut them all. But his virtue signaling by embracing the coproach, wanting to increase the military industrial complex by enormous amounts and a war on recreational marijuana is no sign or harbinger of either fiscal sobriety nor recognition of the superiority of localized subsidiarity. The most instructive lesson divined by the brief half-life of the Trump ascendency is the collectivists, the deep state and its media apologists have drawn the curtain and dropped the veil on their desires. The naked sublimation and destruction of individualliberty is job one for these creatures. My fear was more of the same and I loathe being right. Use your time wisely to prepare for the continuing Endarkenment because there is no stopping it. Consider this a pause to gather your family, increase your preps, continue training, refine your armory and get ready for the path ahead which will demand not only your life but will determine just how free your children may be. -BB
“All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.” - George Orwell
We all experience the world through the shared stories and anecdotes that illuminate who we are and where we come from.  Our educations, both formal and informal, drive the worldviews we develop over time.  These are influenced universally by the transmission mediums we listen to or read about.  Whether we are reading books (an increasingly uncommon practice), watching television, interacting on the internet or engaging in conversation with friends and family, all of these activities consistently and irrevocably develop and refine the way we view the world around us.  First and foremost, our language and employment thereof has the most significant impact on us.  I do not want to bother with the noxious collectivist apologias familiar to the deconstructionists like Chomsky and Foucault who profess that literary texts and contemporary conversation are freighted with the various Politically Correct bugbears like race, class and gender which to me is a neat but erroneous substitute for thinking things through.  But they do make an important point:  our language, in this case, English, informs and prejudices cogitation in an unconscious fashion that can short-circuit clear and conscious thinking. For example, prior to 1860, the use of the phrase “the United States are” was far more common than the post-1865 notion of the “the United States is”.  Mark Twain “observed that the Civil War was fought over whether ‘United States’ was singular or plural”.  Some attribute this to Basil Lanneau Gildersleeve, Professor of Greek at Johns Hopkins University, who wrote in 1909 that:
“[I]f I chose (sic), I might enlarge on the historical importance of grammar in general and Greek grammar in particular. It was a point of grammatical concord that was at the bottom of the Civil War – “United States are,” said one, “United States is,” said another.”
The genesis of a bloody and, in the end, inglorious conflict may have been a dispute over grammatical construction, which informed the consciousness of millions.
Publisher’s Note: The New Year brings a new monster to the Offal Office in Mordor. While I am relieved that Hil Jong-Un failed in its bid to seize the fulcrum of power in DC, we will see what happens. I have to say I am a little encouraged so far and I will stand by my notion that there is nothing Trump will reduce or eliminate in the Federal government apparatus that disturbs me. Nothing. Burn it all. Unfortunately, the most important tells for a President’s view of liberty is his notion of interventionism overseas and his joy d-vive at the mere mention of “law enforcement. If you enthuse about military intervention overseas or the concomitant support of occupation behavior at home, your notions of liberty are quite distorted if non-existent. We wait and see, I make no predictions but I do think the prospect for unencumbered individual liberty in America remains absent and elusive. I plan on ramping up some of my podcasting this year since I have been on sabbatical but will avoid most of the usual venues for libertarian content among the celebritarians since the liberty ‘verse is so full of folks who can’t seem to keep their ungentlemanly behavior at bay nor ply the critical thinking skills necessary to parse an argument or measure second -and third-order effects. Sadomasochism is the unique relationship where the abused supplicant must love the one they fear, that is the essence od the state’s contract with humanity. -BB Just a reminder that this end of the life of the Constitution with Trump in office will bear all the hallmarks of the original document's intent: to create and expand the force of government crowd and render extinct all individual liberties inconvenient to the government. That is the sole "inconvenient truth." The United States Constitution provides that Congress "shall have the power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts, and Excises ... but all Duties, Imposts, and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States." So, why, pray tell, did the British colonials seek a divorce and violently so after Gage’s predations on arms and power in 1774-175? So it begins: Many causes emerged and these are certainly at the forefront:  October 7, 1763 King George III proclaims a ban on westward migration in the colonies.  April 5 and 9, 1763 Parliament passes the Sugar and Currency Acts  March 22, 1765 Parliament passes the Stamp Act (even playing cards and dice)  May 15, 1765 Parliament passes the Quartering Act of 1765  March 18, 1766 Parliament repeals the Stamp Act and passes the Declaratory Act (asserting the authority of Parliament to legislate for the colonies “in all cases whatsoever.”)  June 29, 1766 Parliament passes the Townshend Acts  July, 1767 Parliament passes the New York Suspending Act  April 21, 1768 The British Secretary of State for the colonies responds to the Massachusetts Circular Letter  June 8, 1769 The British Secretary of State for the colonies orders General Thomas Gage to deploy forces to Boston  March 5, 1770 The Boston Massacre leads to the death of five colonists  November 2, 1772 The first Committee of Correspondence is formed in Boston, and produces Samuel Adams’ bold assertion of the “Rights of the Colonists,” and Dr. Joseph Warren’s “List of Infringements and Violations of Rights.”  January 6, 1773 Massachusetts’ Governor Hutchinson argues the supremacy of Parliament before the General Court  May 10, 1773 With the passage of the Tea Act, the East India Company is granted a virtual monopoly on the tea trade in the colonies  March 31-June 2, 1774 The British Parliament passes the five Coercive Acts in order to punish Massachusetts for the Tea Party and regain control of the colony  September 11, 1774 King George III commits Britain to a policy of intractable opposition to colonial claims. I would urge everyone interested to read further on these precursors to American Revolution I. This is not comprehensive by any stretch but space demands brevity for the purpose of showing that the Constitution was simply a redux and improved imitation of Imperial law making from the mother country. This is why the Anti-Federalists were so horrified by the political coup in Philadelphia crafting the monstrous Constitution.
Never get ketched.” – Quill Rose.
The father of woodcraft in America, Horace Kephart, described the inhabitants of the Southern Appalachian chain, as the “most independent race on earth.” (527) One shining example of that very ideal is Quill Rose. He was a blockader, Confederate, fiddle player, farmer, logger, storyteller, hunter, blacksmith and freedomista writ large. Aquilla Liam Rose, was born in 1841, on Anthony Creek at Cades Cove, Blount County, Tennessee. Quill was a picturesque 19th century mountaineer. Tall for the time at 6’1”, he sported a beard and was said to always have a rifle. In 1857, Quill married Lavisa Hyde who was half Cherokee and daughter of Qua-nee-gar-na-gar (otherwise known as Ben Hyde) from the North Carolina side of the Smoky’s. He affectionately referred to her as “Aunt Vicey.” During the conflict of 1861-1865, he enlisted in the Confederate Army at Franklin, Macon County, North Carolina. He was a Private in Levi's Battery Light Artillery, in the very unique Thomas Legion of Highlanders and Cherokee, which would be called the 69th North Carolina during a foray to the Virginia Valley later in the war. The Legion was composed local mountain people and approximately 400 outlaw Cherokee who resisted and evaded the slave patrols of Andrew Jackson on the Trail of Tears. After the war, Quill returned to his normal life. He took up the art of illicit liquor making. The federal government had recently imposed another tax on distilled spirits in order to pay for the subjugation of the several southern states that attempted to CS-Exit from the Glorious Union. Quill was also a very active and legendary hunter. Shortly after he returned home from the war, he was reported to have been on moonshine business on his way to Charleston, North Carolina, which is now present-day Bryson City, North Carolina. He got into an altercation with a man named Rhodes. After Rhodes threw verbal blows at Rose, he shot Quill through the body. Before Quill fell from the wound he managed to draw his knife and stab Rhodes. Quill lived, Rhodes bled out. Though a fairly clear-cut case of self-defense, but given his natural aversion to government justice and his involvement in illicit liquor distillation, Quill fled to Texas for a few years until things cooled off. Rose returned to North Carolina. Quill had allegedly killed 2 other men in his time that aggressed upon him and escaped trial on all counts. The Quill Rose legend began to build. Quill and his wife had decided to retreat even further into the mountains. This action was no different than the peoples of the geographic area known as Zomia, in the hills of south east Asia which James C Scott has written so eloquently about. The retreat to remote and inaccessible areas or “Non-State Space” is a form of escapism from the State. Historically governments have had trouble establishing and maintaining authority in challenging terrain, whether it was mountains or swamps. Add in a freedom culture and particularly one with self-defense as a chief plank, you end up with a pretty good recipe for maintaining at least some level of freedom even in a statist world. Quill made his home at the head of Eagle Creek, a very remote section of the Smoky Mountains on the Tennessee line, an area that Horace Kephart termed the “Back of Beyond.”
  Author’s Note: The Donald was elected. As the cycle goes, the Patriots are slowly going from burgeoning revolutionaries and restorationists of the Original Constitutional Order to defenders of the new regime and falling back asleep because their team is at the helm. This happens every time a new CEO takes over the Racket in Mordor. These are the Yo-Yo Patriots and Sunshine Soldiers. They only pay lip service to freedom when their party isn’t winning. When they are in control, they defend every tyrannical measure to the death and surely throw in a few ‘if you don’t love it, leave it’s!’ for good measure. As Pat Buchanan wrote years ago, the Right is doing nothing but preserving the last liberal victory. I’ve heard it all. From it being legal to start shooting BLM protesters to Trump is currently repealing all gun laws. I’m here to urge all of you to not develop a bias toward the New Normal. Now is the time to hone those skills and sharpen those hatchets. Let us remember Malcolm X’s talk on the House Negro and the Field Negro. Which one are you? The previous installment of this series generated a number of comments. In an effort to help combat more Derp that is pervasive in the community, I offer part two. The purpose of this series is not to mock, but to educate. These tactical tidbits are an effort to save a lot of people time, money as well as mitigating lots bad habits and training scars. Lets get right into it. -JM Israeli Carry Often more hotly debated than 9 mike vs. 40sw vs. 357sig vs. 45acp vs. 46 vs. 10mm vs. 11 in some circles is whether it’s a good idea to actually carry a loaded gun. The gun has a full magazine inserted, but an empty chamber. This is often called ‘Israeli Carry’ (IC) because it was and to my knowledge still is the Standing Operating Procedure (SOP) for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). The story as to how the IDF adopted the empty chamber method as explained by Jeff Bloovman of Armed Dynamics is said to of dated back to a time when the nation-state of Israel formed in 1948. The rag tag, untrained army had only mismatched weapons at the time. Particularly pistols. With an amalgam of weapons ranging from Hi-Powers to 1911’s to Lugers and others, it was to hard to keep the guys from having Negligent Discharges (ND’s) and to teach all the myriad of different types of manipulations to work the safety’s on each different type of gun. So they came up with the idea of just having them run an empty chamber and having them rack the slide to load the gun upon engagement. While this SOP was developed for a specific reason, it’s lost on most modern practitioners. They believe themselves to be IDF operators, who upon contact will rack that slide, assume their half squat horse stance and get to work. Entire YouTube video series exist about how a new concealed carrier can ease into working up to carrying a round in the chamber by using snap caps and other silliness. I could sum up this entire issue by simply saying, if you are not carrying a round in the chamber, you are WRONG, but lets talk about some draw backs to the method. Children. It’s always the children. And Izzy Carry proponents waste no time in stating that carrying a loaded firearm in a quality holster around children lacks all sense. The argument is that a kid will rip the gun from the holster and shoot Tac-Dad in the head. This is merely a problem of not being in control of ones own gun, which is probably one of the most important principles of responsible concealed carry. This is a non-issue for a trained and responsible carrier. But lets talk children for just one second. Imagine that the fight breaks out in whatever scenario gets your heart racing and you have the time and opportunity to draw a weapon in condition Izzy. You have your flailing and hysterical toddler in your other arm. You begin to develop tunnel vision and auditory exclusion. You get an adrenaline dump. You have to clear your cover garment, and draw one handed. You cannot use your normal two-handed rack method. You are pressed against a wall so you cannot rack off your holster, one handed like you practiced at the range. Your front belt line is covered with your toddlers flailing leg. You are reduced to trying to bring your heel to your gun to rack that slide off of it. You lose your balance. You fall and are now completely at a disadvantage in the fight. Would you rather have your gun loaded or unloaded in this situation? Let's talk about malfunctions. Lots of malfunctions are caused when chambering rounds. If you carry without a round in the chamber, during your load-under-stress sequence, if you get a failure to chamber, you just caused a whole other problem. You are willingly making the probability of a problem occurring during the opening of a fight more possible. Lets set up another scenario. The fight begins, and you being your Count Dracula draw stroke process, as soon as your gun hand indexes your holstered weapon, your strong side/weapon side arm gets shot. Your Brachial is nicked. Massive bleeding is occurring. That arm is useless. You cannot begin to work the MARCH protocol on yourself until you stop the guy from shooting at you. You must draw your weapon on your right side, with your left arm. You must then rack that weapon to chamber a round, and then get to work. In the mean time, the assailant’s buddy begins to beat the ever-loving snot out of you with an iron pipe from 4 feet away. Do you believe it would advantageous to have a loaded gun in this instance or an unloaded one?
Publisher’s Note: The holidays are here and all my children are flying in from all across the West to spend Christmas with us. I want to wish a Merry Christmas to all my readers and their families. 2017 will be a different year which may or may not turn the tide of the occupation of Mordor by the oligarchies in DC. We’ll see, I am not holding breath. Don’t hesitate to stop preps for the coming Endarkenment or suspect that the rulers will all of sudden find a moral compass. They don’t have one. They are the Morlocks of the socialist author, HG Well’s fantasies. Weapons training is critical but don’t forget that rebellion is fed by logistics and mature operating systems for strategic narrative and vision for cooperating resistance organizations. The reason this is critical is that most successful revolutions in human history are cooperative venture among a variety of loosely confederated interest blocs. Witness the Committees of Correspondence during the First American Revolution and the current webs of resistance intrigue across the Middle East. Real revolution starts between your ears and using your transmission means for your family. Friends are a choice so be careful because Mordor has a vast and deep informant network where they buy the loyalty of people for a price that would be embarrassing if revealing to friends, families and neighbors of the snitch. Per the amusing paroxysms of the fake news imbroglio, keep in mind that like Snowden, Wikileaks has brought the curtain back for all to see the disinformation, deceit and sheer hubris of the rulers and their political factions for all to see. You’ll note that the DNC has yet to issue a comprehensive point-by-point refutation of the email scandal in which the inner workings of America’s Communist Party 2.0 were shown for anyone interested. If the NYPD had their wits about them, a stretch at best, they copied the drive on Comrade Weiner’s laptop before turning the computer over to the Stasi. I will be doing some more podcast interviews and discussions in 2017 and participating in a new documentary being crafted by TL Davis. Most of the work will be historical and analytical work on resistance and rebellion planet-wide.. I suggest your News Resolution include a complete disconnection any cable, satellite or antennae media that doesn’t stream. Streaming is an elective process that allows the user to be actively selective in the stuff their brainstem absorbs. A key component of the state’s success is the programming that tales place in both the broadcast realm and its supplemental mind laundry in the government schools. Dedicate yourself to reading books, putting down your screens and talking to people…with your mouth. Why do you think they call it programming? –BB  
“Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations that've long since bought and paid for, the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pocket, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and the information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I'll tell you what they don't want. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them.” -George Carlin
How do you deprogram yourself from the programming by the state? So I am going to wax philosophical because the season always inspires it in me. This is the one time of the year where most people behave in a way that exemplifies the best aspects of the voluntaryist society and its aspirations. We home educated all of our children and the sainted bride did the lion’s share of the work. We used a variant composite of the Trivium and Quatrivium, Charlotte Mason whole texts and a degree of unschooling. They have all grown now and all my boys are native born anarchists. My daughters are close but still resist the final embrace of a world without rulers. They happen to represent a significant liberty deficit that will be addressed in another essay in the future, The gender gap for individual freedom.
  Publisher’s Note: As a non-voter, I still feel as if I am basking and delighting in the defeat of the Bolsheviks in the latest “advance auction for stolen goods”. While I feel the Republicans have been no better than Menshevik apologists for the monstrous growth of the state, it was wonderful to see Trump maul and mince the likes of intellectual Lilliputians like Jeb Bush and the whole motley crew of crony capitalists posing as human beings during the race to the Offal Office. I am continually astonished at the sheer mendacity and tragically imbecilic stupidity of our blessed leaders and movers and shakers. But I broke the code: the psychopathy is enabled on the simple nostrum of weaponizing envy, the basic precept that if you find a way for people to morally justify theft and initiation of force, presto. That’s it. Remove the ability to initiate violence and the state evaporates. Further yet, stop the obedience and the state must maim and kill you. If they don’t everyone stops complying. That was simple. Mind you, I haven’t a clue what Trump will be but if he causes the usual suspects in DC to fill their pants in angst and raze regulations and lower theft rates by the IRS, good luck to him. I think all politicians or more accurately, violence brokers, are some of the lowest scum to ever leave a mucous trail behind them as they make their way through the tsunami of broken lives and burned corpses that is a direct result of their immoral and predatory behavior. It will be a pleasure to see the nation’s first female President leave office in January. I don’t expect the Bolshevik vote recount nonsense with Jill Stein's Watermelon Party to bear fruit. The Founding Lawyers did us a favor by ensuring the Electoral College would at least keep the emerging urban communist hives in check for assuming all political power even though the commanding heights of “education’ and the dinosaur media are completely suborned to the cause of Leviathan. You’ll note the exterminationists have suggested a Russian connection to any media outlet or blogger who opposes the coronation of Pantsuit Negan. The crisis continues… I am not a journalist but I do have basic research skills. The media reports on Faux News that 60 cops have died in gunfire this year. The police fetishists are all aflutter at the alleged increase in cops dying from gunfire. When one examines the data, it turns out that 13 of the 60 are dogs which doesn’t come close to the number of dogs murdered by cops yearly (some estimates put it at 25 per day) so this places the total tally to 47 against 35 last year. Let’s also keep in mind that the police have shot two of their own dogs this year and murdered 11 through heat death in their official cars. So that’s a total increase of approx 35% in raw numbers and five of those were killed in one evening in Dallas in an aggregate event. So the media doesn’t do its homework and simply mouth-breathes their way through the latest government press release. Do your own homework and assume the entire media is a handmaiden for the state. Rage Against the Machine, the commie rock band, has an inspiring message for the talking heads in the dying mainstream media. Look for the flagship Soviet Pravda publications like the Washington Post and the New York Times to quickly discover the First Amendment doesn’t cover all speech not approved by their precious government apparatchiks. If you haven’t already, never ever buy a newspaper again; I have a thought experiment for you, take a look at the latest birdcage bottom cover if you had the misfortune of buying one and count the number of advertisers who are government agencies. Or call the nincompoops who staff your local rag and ask them. Now ask yourself this. If one third or more of your ad revenue is from your local government thug-scrum, what kind of investigative reporting or criticism of the government combine will occur on the editorial page? Yeah, that’s what I thought too. Turn it off, don’t give them a dime and cancel any non-streaming ether connection that feeds your glass teat in the mansion. All of it. And always assume that the media is biased if they claim otherwise. In other news, TL Davis is helming a documentary project called Lies of Omission. Please contribute as you are able. He’s trying to provide a corrective to the disgusting Katie Couric Potemkin documentary on abolishing the private ownership of firearms in the USSA. What’s a better holiday gift than sticking a fourteen-foot pike in the eye of Mordor? We have a pause in the cause with the latest plantation selection, but don’t neglect your training, preps and armory enhancement. My oldest daughter (who had my first grand-daughter this summer!) recently wrote me and wanted me to explain fascism, so I thought this was a great teaching moment to take the time to scribble an essay on that very subject. -BB fascism-1 What is fascism? Dear Kiri, The definitions of fascism: Merriam-Webster: a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. Wikipedia: One common definition of the term focuses on three concepts: the fascist negations of anti-liberalism, anti-communism and anti-conservatism; nationalist authoritarian goals of creating a regulated economic structure to transform social relations within a modern, self-determined culture; and a political aesthetic of romantic symbolism, mass mobilization, a positive view of violence, and promotion of masculinity, youth and charismatic leadership. According to many scholars, fascism—especially once in power—has historically attacked communism, conservatism and parliamentary liberalism, attracting support primarily from the far right. I find that Chapter 10 of As We Go Marching, by John T. Flynn, originally published in 1944.
“Nothing that Mussolini did fell in with his own ideas more than this. He was a syndicalist. And, as we have pointed out, it was the central principles of syndicalism that were making their way un-noticed into the thinking of all sorts of people. The syndicalist believed that industry should be controlled. So did Mussolini and so did most other people. The syndicalist believed that this control should take place outside the state. So did Mussolini and so did almost all others. The syndicalist believed that society should be organized for this control in craft groups. So did labor, industrialists, the people. And so did Mussolini. The syndicalist believed that industry should be dominated not by consumers or citizens as such but by producers. So did most others including the Duce. There was only one point on which they differed. That was the meaning of the word “producers.” The employers considered themselves the producers. The syndicalists believed the workers were the producers. One way to resolve that question was to call them all producers.”
Flynn (one of the clarion voices for liberty in the 20th century) goes on to elucidate the intense government involvement in controlling all private markets and enterprise under fascism.
"People are disturbed, not by things, but by the principles and notions which they form concerning things. Death, for instance, is not terrible, else it would have appeared so to Socrates. But the terror consists in our notion of death that it is terrible. When therefore we are hindered, or disturbed, or grieved, let us never attribute it to others, but to ourselves; that is, to our own principles..." -Enchiridion, Chapter Five "The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity." - Lucius Annaeus Seneca
The infantilization of America moves forward as the man and masculinity continue to be erased from the landscape. There is a bifurcation between rural and urban voters in the US. The rural areas apparently delivered a vote count against the Red Queen nine out of ten ballots. The maps show a massive geographic divide between the collectivist urban hives and the fly-over the government supremacist intelligentsia hold in such contempt and disdain. We have the amusing spectacle of the teeming hordes of skinny bearded metrosexuals and their estrogen-poisoned enablers throwing tantrums across the country and threatening violence. Threatening violence. The same crowd of hoplophobes and neutered males who caterwaul and wail for the prohibition of all private ownership of weapons. Many of these creatures are now asking for a recount or even secession from Trumplandia. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out, vermin. If California left tomorrow, they would be a third world shithole in 24 months. They are a Federally subsidized funded debt canary that can’t sustain the pensions they promised and fairy dust welfare state they crafted on the backs of workers and the unborn progeny now mired in debt. If other Sovietized America-stans like the Northeastern hellholes and the Moscow analog in Chicago want to secede, please go, you are doing your neighbors a favor. I’ve been living through a 28 year reign of collectivist terror under the Busheviks and all the Presidential Orcs that followed. Reagan was weak-kneed breather between bout of massive government expansion. And no, it won’t take much evidence to prove to me this cancerous leviathan has been growing since 1791. Mind you, I have no idea what Trump is going to do and as a non-voter simply look on elections from a self-defense position. I do admire the fuck you aspect of the Trump vote and know he is doing something right because both sides of the illusory aisle are terrified and filling their pants in horror at the prospect of his triumphant ascension to the throne and the ring of power.
“Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.” - Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin “Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.” - H.L. Mencken
Voting is a primary tool for tyrants, they need the blame shifted from themselves to the willing accomplices in the population for the crimes they’ve committed and those uncommitted up to the time they resume their nefarious tasks of threatening, fining, kidnapping, maiming and killing selected Helots who happen to slide into the sight the government machine has focused on its latest rapine project. I’ve explained in essays before the nuts and bolts of why voting is a declaration of war on your neighbors, friends and family. If a local gang flying colored rags and singing bad songs came to you and said we’re taking half of your shit and we’ll put a surcharge on your misbehavior if you object, some of the men may go to gun but most Americans would simply roll over, expose their bellies and trickle a small amount of urine on themselves to demonstrate agreement to the idea. Voting is a failure of moral imagination. You’ll notice a vote in this country is never about changing the system to one of zero theft and initiated aggression on the part of the state. It’s always about a nest of psychopaths offering a menu of the same violent and economically illiterate voodoo that is government bookkeeping and barbaric behavior on residents and non-residents alike. Clinton is a classic candidate in America in that she is a sanctioned crime family member whose obeisance to the law is more nuanced than the average human and she has a penchant to wage war against anyone opposed to her through both ideas and actual violence. The Clintons and Busheviks have similar crime family DNA. The Republicans have yet to win the Offal Office without a Bush or Nixon on the ticket since 1952. 2016 has been an especially bad year for the Wizard of Oz in America because the curtain has been pulled back to expose a rotting maximum government dynasty that seems to seamlessly trace its roots back to the Lincolnian Marxist overdrive applied to the Hamiltonian machine. The email revelations on the DNC not only reveal a sclerotic and arthritic grasp on the levers of criminal power but a stupidity that defies imagination when one considers the non-existent security measures taken to protect their internet communications. The alphabet soup of palace intrigue and kindergarten whisper campaigns animated everything from a demonization of the Catholic church to the secret jeremiad against the now compliant Venezuelan Bernie. Imagine if you will: none of this had come out before the election season, the mass of bleating sheep would be a little more numerous and a small remnant of cognoscenti would have the burden of knowing who the Clintons were without having a leg to stand on in proof. I will tell you that if the same releases had occurred on the RNC, the Democrat’s trustworthy clients among the Republicans would have demonstrated the same intrigue levied against the enemies of Jeb Bush, who is the perfect GOP candidate: a milquetoast government supremacist of middling intellect willing to be the water boy for every expansion of Leviathan that would come across his desk. The Busheviks have always been reliable supporters of every government demolition of individual liberty and pliant apparatchiks for fleecing the tax Helots in every way imaginable. I’m not an acolyte of the Constitutional framework and the resulting monster unleashed against the victims in North America and the entire planet after 1893 after the aboriginal population had been murdered and reduced to manageable proportions on the continent. You are witnessing the apex accomplishment of the Hamiltonian Constitutional construct. I’ve discussed the many wonderful qualities of secession in previous posts to include in the last fortnight. The usual suspects even among the vaunted threeper crowd that secession is legal in Texas and nowhere else always amuse me. I’ve given up on Constitutionalists of every stripe who have become nothing more than Menshevik apologists for a ballooning government. Let me set the record straight: with rare historical exceptions (the Czech-Slovak divorce), secession is never within the legal framework of ANY state. Never. If you think the BREXIT decision is safe, wait for it. The future portends some interesting wrinkles.
secede-or-die-black-shirt Publisher's Note: If this election season does not cure you of voting at any level in a statists enterprise, you have been paralyzed from the neck up in a skiing accident. When you pull that lever, it is a declaration of war on your neighbor. Use this time to tend to your preps. This is the one hundred year anniversary of the Easter Rising in Ireland and the beginning of the "suit and tie" guerrilla fight in Eire. In recognition of the coming Endarkenment and the possibility for sporty times ahead, I've added two new wrinkles to my armory for the excitement ahead. The Roland Special for the G19 LAW folder on AR pistol. On to secession. Moving on, I find the Anti-Federalist papers always refreshing and invigorating to review and read again. As a Stoic, I often read writing that is literally two thousand years old. I don't suffer from the chronological conceit that if it weren't published in the last five years, it has no merit. Hence a reunion with my secession series I penned years ago before I was ex-communicated from A fictional narrative series on possible futures in the USSA. I inaugurated the first of several conversations about secession several years ago.  The first essay is published below and the accompanying essays are linked below that.  Mordor on the Potomac can NEVER be reformed.  You can send good people but they will be sucked into a system of corruption and servitude that is unrivaled in the last thousand years in the magnitude of treasure and blood expended outside of large conflicts.  Buppert's Corollary to Acton's Axiom is that "Power attracts the corruptible and absolute power attracts even worse".   Rare is the ruler in any annals of history whose psyche is not possessed of a severe psychopathy or sociopathy; they rule and seek to do so because they wish to control others ultimately through any means necessary.  Five millennia of chronicled history is unimpeachable - government, whether secular or religious, is the source of ALL slavery and the fount of most violence leading to the abattoirs like Nazi Germany or the USSR.  We are on the road ourselves. This election season has been quite the peek behind the curtain at how the ruling cabals in America work. The email scandals surrounding Comrade Clinton, the Wikileaks release, the American Stasi clean bill of health for a politician spreading state secrets, the triangulation of the Clinton Foundation and the pay for play of some the most vile regimes on Earth... On and on... The wars we now engage in AfPak, Yemen, Iraq and all the other neo-imperialist shitpits planet-wide are simply more expenditures of blood and treasure on top of the War on Drugs, Poverty, etc.  The Soviet Union was quite vicious but at least they were honest about their form of government.  We are bombarded by the government/media complex on the freedoms and liberties we enjoy.  What?  The attack on 9/11 and our war on Islam is not a response to their antipathy toward the aforementioned freedoms and liberties.  They have simply reacted to decades of war on the Middle East.  We were told they hate us for our freedoms but that charge is more fairly leveled at our own government. The final deSovietization of these united States will only occur when the American fractures, dissolves, devolves and calves off into the inevitable regional enclaves which have been created already through spontaneous order.  Remember that all the analysts were caught flat-footed when the USSR collapsed in 1989.  It can happen here so you had better prepare for the worst because it is coming.  That is not one Black Swan approaching, it is a flock. The America in the Inland West is significantly different in culture and temperament from the Soviet-lite states of the Northeast.  This country was born in a divorce from the United Kingdom and a secondary revolution in 1860-65 to right fissures that had long been festering and it is time for the country to file for divorce again – from Washington.  My books are available on Amazon and I would love some honest reviews if you have the time. -BB "Good Morning, Governor, how might we…" "Mr. President, I realize you are a busy man so let’s get down to brass tacks…we are calling the ball and withdrawing our support of your Administration and the Federal government in DC. Effective immediately, we have coordinated to place all outgoing receipts to the IRS in a caged account here in Boise…" "Governor, you can’t do that…" "Please don’t interrupt while I am speaking as we are from this point onward peers in the family of nations. I hope you have reviewed the diplomatic instruments we sent by courier last night to Department of State which delineates the terms of our divorce." "I did receive those and you have no earthly idea the can of whoop-…" "Please, sir, maintain the decorum of these proceedings so we can move forward to an amicable separation. I give you my personal assurance on the safety and well-being of all Federal personnel we have detained for immediate repatriation to the remainder of these United States. Any non-law enforcement Federal personnel who wish to remain behind will be permitted to do so." "I hope you have thought through the consequences of what you are embarking on." "Mr. President, we have had over two hundred years to give the rulers on the Potomac a chance but that time has expired. Effective immediately, all so-called Federal lands now belong to the nation of Idaho and we will dispose of these lands at our leisure. In the interest of burying the hatchet, we will not seek compensation for the seizure, abuse and tenure of Federal practices on the aforementioned land and call the balance even." "Those are my lands, Governor…" "In actuality, they belong to neither of us, sir. On to other business, I have alerted my National Guard forces to establish checkpoints at all the main arterials in and out of Idaho. All National Guard forces deployed overseas will return home in the next 48 hours. I would also caution you on the use of military force to convince Idaho and its citizens to forcibly return to the yoke of the Union. Idaho has a well-deserved reputation as a rather well-equipped state in firearms possession and use. As Yamamoto said, you may find a rifle behind every blade of grass." "Are you threatening the president of the United States?" "No, sir, I am simply making an observation about the hazards of one country invading another." "You are land-locked, Governor and wholly dependent on federal subsidy for a great deal of employment and infrastructure in Idaho."
I'd like to suggest the soundtrack for the new America that is emerging. BFYTW. I’ve covered my thoughts on rule of law, obedience and refusal unto death to not comply. These are the building blocks to create systems that stymie the political control of human beings. My interest in politics is always a matter of self-defense. Politics is nothing more than a sophisticated way to describe a violence system that uses coercion through threat and force to steal from its geographical inhabitants and regulate every aspect of their lives. It molds society through sheer naked aggression and blood lust; a willingness to kill a subject for violating a seatbelt law or not obeying a badged Praetorian in the pay of the state. And politicians are violence brokers and nothing more. There is no such thing as a statesman, a mythic fiction foisted by court historians through the ages to champion their country’s psychopaths in suit and tie. There are a number of factors that make this possible. The factory school cartel controlled by the government is a key element of the imperial conditioning process that encourages humans to be so susceptible to the weird and odd hybrid of the Stockholm Syndrome and Milgram experiment that makes Western countries so unbearable. The latest political circus has finally proven beyond a shadow of a doubt the kabuki theater that is the “two party” system in America; a mere flimsy superstructure to the Deep State that actually controls the vast plantation entity that is the US. I find Trump just as obnoxious as the harridan from the Clinton crime family but do enjoy the fuck you attitude of the vote for Trump. Most don’t seem to realize that changing the meat puppets in DC does not a change make. But many are waking up to the reeking stink of corruption that is the entire collectivist swamp of Mordor on the Potomac. The leviathan will continue apace and the government will simply get bigger and more intrusive. The non-aggression principle holds that no initiated aggression through force or fraud is moral and may demand reciprocal violence to stymie the threat or actual use of violence. This is not pacifism, this is life as we know it. Pacifism is a sure-fire path to extinction for all its practitioners. But the government keeps pushing and hitting and stealing. Pushing.
