In the previous essay, I discussed the mindset of the weapons prohibitionists in the country. You’ll find many of these totalitarians on both the left and right.*

Please remember all the government supremacists who want your guns will see you dead to achieve their goal. Guaranteed.

I repeat, this is a commie jeremiad against private weapons, no limitations on government guns is on the table. Ever.

I’d like to revisit the latest attempts by academia and book publishers to press the edge of the envelope with the historical fiction that not only was early America gunless but much less of a gun culture than any observer imagined. In this case the fantastical and fiction-filled exploits of Bellisiles successor, Comrade Michael Waldman.

Comrade Waldman is the executive director of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, a communist think tank and advocacy organization focusing on democracy and…progress[ivism]. He was the chief teleprompter-writer for Offal Office Rezident Bill Clinton from 1995–1999.

Remember these creatures exist in a mindset that not only identifies Trump as Hitler but seeks to beg and plead with the same chief executive to disarm them in the face of the Trump Derangement Syndrome that has unhinged so many soy-boys, metrosexuals, women of both sexes and the usual crowd of Marxian aspirants who despise all human transactions that don’t involve a government train conductor.

Let’s make the interpretive framework clear that Waldman operates under. The horrific and collectivist robed Bolshevik, William Brennan, said this gem in 1985 (or it may have been penned by one of his clerks):

“We current Justices read the Constitution in the only way that we can: as twentieth century Americans. We look to the history of the time of framing and to the intervening history of interpretation. But the ultimate question must be, what do the words of the text mean in our time. For the genius of the Constitution rests not in any static meaning it might have had in a world that is dead and gone, but in the adaptability of its great principles to cope with current problems and current needs.”

In other words, no anchor in the eighteenth century will deter this black-robed nazgul from bloviating from on high that government knows best in every aspect of society excepting his heroic work to make infanticide safe for all post-natal humanity.

Here is Waldman’s brief:

The Second Amendment gives the government permission to form and regulate militias, the sole amendment in the Anti-Federalist bill of rights that empowers the government despite the arcane notion of “shall not be infringed” which is a curious position unsupported by contemporary opinion in the eighteenth century. Waldman fails to explain how one amendment of the original ten would codify and justify a government veto on a right whereas the rest are rejoinders against government behavior.

If you have an air sickness bag, I urge you to read this interview with Waldman in the communist monthly, Mother Jones.

It allows you to rely on Comrade Waldman’s own notions without me putting words in his mandibles.

To Waldman, however, the idea of an individual right to gun ownership is not just wrong but ridiculous; those who disagree are not just mistaken but idiots. Pro-gun historians are hacks — for example, George Mason law professor Joyce Malcolm is “a previously little-known historian” who writes “in a tone of having discovered a lost hieroglyph.”

Keep in mind that the primary reason the Federal judiciary system exists is to regulate, reduce and eliminate all private life, liberty and property in America. The legal architecture is the farmer of the communist kudzu that has been consuming the US since its founding. The cascading reduction of private gun rights over time is simply a representative example of the project..

Three respected constitutional scholars — Sanford Levinson of the University of Texas, Akhil Reed Amar of Yale, and Laurence Tribe of Harvard — have concluded that the amendment protects individuals; Waldman does not answer but belittles them, citing “Robert Frost’s definition of a liberal: someone so open-minded he will not take his own side in an argument.” Levinson in particular deserves mention because he approached the notion of gun ownership with a law school article entitled “The Embarrassing Second Amendment”.

I am so grateful I was able to get a copy of this pig at the library so I wouldn’t contribute one debt-buck to this government supremacist. I’m waiting for Clayton Cramer to destroy Waldman in detail in the same fashion he turned the human dumpster-fire posing as a writer, Michael Bellisiles, into a former academic. Mind you, it’s a brief 170-page book with end-notes where he spends the first one hundred pages attempting to eviscerate the word militia to mean total government control of firearms and the weak un-packaging of the horrific Heller decision by the Supremes in 2008 (the court’s majority opinion said that the Second Amendment protects “the right of law-abiding, responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home).”

BUT

 Zombie Scalia opined:

“Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.”

And then Zombie Scalia avers:

Page 51, in re Miller

“The Government’s brief spent two pages discussing English legal sources, concluding “that at least the carrying of weapons without lawful occasion or excuse was always a crime” and that (because of the class-based restrictions and the prohibition on terrorizing people with dangerous or unusual weapons) “the early English law did not guarantee an unrestricted right to bear arms.  Brief for United States, O. T. 1938, No. 696, at 9–11.” (Emphasis added.)

Page 55

“Miller said, as we have explained, that the sorts of weapons protected were those “in common use at the time.” 307 U. S., at 179.  We think that limitation is fairly supported by the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of “dangerous and unusual weapons.  See 4 Blackstone 148–149 (1769) …” (Emphasis added.)

I would have preferred the robed scum on the court have gotten one vote to fail the test of individuals’ rights and let the games begin to codify mass seizure of firearms in the country.

I am consistently amazed at the sloppy but unrelenting jurisprudence that if applied to any other Bill of Right appendage absent the besotted Ninth Amendment (the deadest letter of all) would be laughed at and belittled by any sober observer.

The NRA will not save your ability to defend yourself, they are invested in the government just as much as the commies…

The weapons prohibitionists who seek to eradicate all private ownership of guns, and notably have no such case for government arms, are at it again. Usually the murder of apex political violence brokers by private gunmen like Boothe, Guiteau, Czolcosg, and Oswald sets the gun prohibitionists in a lather. Much like the frustration of the American central state in the first 150 years of failing to be capable of imposing a mandatory and trackable tax on income until 1913; the attempts remained feeble and uncoordinated until the Kennedys were killed in the 1960s; the magical combination of bureaucratic horsepower, accountancy standards, tracking of arms through a nation-wide database and the political will on the part of American collectivists (twice as many Republicans as Democrats would vote for the 1968 Gun Control Act, a horrific infringement on self-defense that would start the cascade of nonsense that would bloom like communist inspired kudzu across the fruited plain).

This would be presaged by Ronald Reagan going full gun control with the backing  of the NRA (of course) in 1967 with the Mulford Act. The uppity blacks who dared to actually carry weapons in public made the Republicans fill their pants in California at the time.

Fast forward to today and we see that the usual suspects are at it again. What is curious is that the political vermin and their deep state alliance are doing two curious things: they are floating trial balloons for eradicating about repealing the Second Amendment demonstrated most recently by the former Supremes zombie aspirant, John Paul Stevens, spewing his vitriol about having to repeal the 2A to curb gun violence. Like the other ancient communist ghouls on the bench (at every level), their brief is the eradication of freedom that is not explicitly granted by a gargantuan beneficent state.

I welcome the repeal, of course, as I mentioned in this screed.

“The call for repeal of the Second Amendment is nothing new, a cursory internet search will reveal hundred of opinion-editorials and the usual collectivist vermin calling for this to happen; they, of course, hail from the government supremacist viewpoints of the collectivist keening and whining that is the national media voice in America on both Fox and CNN and everything in between (excepting the lonely planetary outpost at ZeroGov).

 Not that the 2A is worth the paper it’s printed on. The 2A is a sham to protect weapons ownership. It has no teeth whatsoever. If it did, how could the 1934 NFA, 1938 FFA, the decision in US v. Miller in 1939, 1968 GCA, Nixon’s pogrom against handguns, the 1986 FOPA, Bushevik I’s ban on foreign cosmetically offensive weapons in 1989, the NICs, the AWB all the way to the conservative zombie Scalia’s Leninist bromide about “dangerous and unusual weapons”. On and on and on.”

 What’s curious is that if the Second Amendment doesn’t guarantee an individual right as so many American socialist observers contend, then why bother? Isn’t the wholesale ownership of the judiciary by government supremacist boosters enough to use the judiciary to simply stamp out the right for good?

The usual suspects have been floating this nonsense for decades including this gem from 2007:

“This seems to me the right response to the amendment no matter which broad historical interpretation is correct. If, in fact, the amendment embodies only a collective right and the right to keep guns is indelibly linked to membership in the old militias—institutions that no longer exist—the amendment is already a dead letter. Repealing it would be then a simple matter of constitutional hygiene, the removal of a constitutional provision that has no function now nor could in the future but that, by its language, encourages the belief in an armed citizenry that I, for one, do not wish to see.”

It appears that this notion of individual firearms ownership really gets under the skin of the academic scum who churn this detritus out for a living while other rodents in the academy applaud politely the “heroic” stance of wanting to disarm and dismember the private ownership of weapons in an entire society.

No government weapons included, no restrictions there. Why, that would be…ahem…uncivilized.

The author, Wittes, further avers: “If, on the other hand, the amendment really does as Silberman, Tribe, Amar, and Levinson essentially claim–and I suspect they are all more right than wrong—then it embodies values in which I don’t believe.

This is the crux of the complaint from the women of both sexes and frightened males who need a fainting couch if someone talks about owning a weapon much less shows one to them. Next they’ll be making me pay for their adult incontinence diapers so their not fear-shamed in public for their unmanly natures.

They not only don’t believe in your right but feel their discomfort merits the wholesale confiscation of property that is not only private and expansive but secures a seldom seen quality; not only does it offer a brake to tyranny but it has been demonstrated planet-wide and throughout history to be a sure thing in effecting regime change. A confiscation that of contested will demand the liberal use of government guns to affect the forced removal of arms from Americans who refuse their betters in government’s request to surrender their arms. They may even have the temerity to violently repel boarders at their homes and take the seizure so seriously they commence a guerrilla conflict to play plink-a-pinko with the government agents the cowardly academics and politicians send to do their dirty business (don’t they always).

Ironic that Hogg is the son of a coproach, the irony is rich with this one in so many ways. His antics this past weekend as a Bolshevik spokes-budgies for the government supremacist seems to indicate that Tide-Pods may become a normal part of the proverbial diet. I think the Gods that my sons did not attend a government mind laundry and turn into that.

The best way to stop government school shootings is shutter every one of them raze them to the ground and fire every government teacher in America. Then the rebuilding can begin.

All the fatuous fury and nonsense is cast at an inanimate object. Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

If we use the American NKVD’s own crime statistics, less than 400 humans per annum are killed by rifles which means that more people die by many other things to include a mere one percent of the suicides every year. 400 annually in a population of 326 million with an estimated hundreds of millions of guns and hundreds of billions of rounds. No one knows how many guns are in the US and you would be foolish in this day and age to reveal the inventory of your personal armory.

Just buy more and consider Comrade Boss Hogg to be the salesman of this century maybe exceeding the Obamunist sales force..

When it come to guns, the paper on your targets at the range pays far more dividends than reliance on the fetid slaver document celebrated and interpreted differently by left and right alike.

The Second Amendment doesn’t protect shit, it merely codifies a pre-existing or a priori right to self-defense. The government can no more nullify the right than it can force people to shut up, not drive and breathe. This doesn’t mean they won’t try and attempt to cloak their evil in legalese and legislative nonsense. This doesn’t mean they won’t pass law after law stacked like skyscrapers in the august chambers where the robed government employees will rubber stamp the nonsense when they take the time to bother doing anything.

At least a repeal of the Second Amendment would put some honesty in the entire enterprise by the government supremacists to make America England again and be a clone of the sinking island hell-hole across the Atlantic.

The gun grabbing Charlton Heston famously aped the words, “from my cold dead hands” and he got it wrong as he did so many other things. The object of conflict is to make the ratios count beyond your body you’re puppeteering in this life. Once the first life is taken in defense of kith and kin, all the rest are free.

This is grunt math. This is the arithmetic of both the good and the bad actors.

“I’ve noticed a fascinating phenomenon in my thirty years of teaching: schools and schooling are increasingly irrelevant to the great enterprises of the planet. No one believes anymore that scientists are trained in science classes or politicians in civics classes or poets in English classes. The truth is that schools don’t really teach anything except how to obey orders. This is a great mystery to me because thousands of humane, caring people work in schools as teachers and aides and administrators, but the abstract logic of the institution overwhelms their individual contributions. Although teachers to care and do work very, very hard, the institution is psychopathic — it has no conscience. It rings a bell and the young man in the middle of writing a poem must close his notebook and move to a different cell where he must memorize that humans and monkeys derive from a common ancestor.”

Publisher’s Note: Buy weapons, ammunition and equipment while you still can.

Even here in the Arizona, our morally stunted Apparatchik Governor, fondly known as Il Douchey, is proposing a raft of weapons prohibitionist nonsense. It’s precious that one of his Orc Chiefs, Napier, in Pima County is spouting the “Only Ones” mantra. Here’s the qualification for a coproach to carry his weapon and shoot Helots in AZ:


“Commissioned members must qualify annually, at minimum, with a weapons system intended for on-duty use on a Department-approved firearms qualification course and must meet all Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training (AZ POST) firearms qualification requirements,”  Pima County Sheriff’s Department General Order 2015-003 mandates.

Once a year for “each weapon system used in an official capacity”? And  how many tries do they get?

“Members shall be allowed up to two (2) attempts to qualify on their initial qualification date. In the event of two (2) failures on the initial qualification date, the member shall be rescheduled by PRTC staff to return to the range, within five (5) business days, for an additional qualification attempt.”

OK, and what is it they get three tries to do?

Assuming we’re talking handguns, there is a revolver course you can check out, but for our purposes, let’s assume semi-automatic handguns are the more likely choice.

50 shots on TQ-19 andTQ-21 targets?

Timed stages at 25 (seven rounds), 15 (12 rounds), seven (19 rounds) and three (12 rounds) yards? Shooters have to manage their ammunition and perform a few reloading/malfunction drills? “Five points for shots within the designated scoring area (center of mass or head)” and a minimum of 210 points out of 250 maximum? 

So basically they get three chances to get a “B” and there’s nothing to stop those with the initiative from doing as much practice as they need in advance?


I thank the Gods every day that most coproaches are the poor marksmen that they are.

Pay attention to what is going on around you. I have an amusing response to the spoke-budgies and the “spontaneous” protects against the private ownership of firearms: get a sign that simply reads: “NO”.-BB

In case you didn’t know it, the primary reason the state owns the K-PhD education path happens to be the handy indoctrination of future subjects to be imbecilic, dependent and devoid of any critical thinking skills. The other reason is a convenient way to launder hundreds of billions of dollars through the education subsystem in subsidies, loans and grants.

Much like the pathetic and deadly Veterans Administration, the system is designed to enstupidate and philosophically sedate its clientele. In the case of education, to surgically transfer the brain-case from the individual to the state. Gatto infers adroitly: “In our secular society, school has become the replacement for church, and like church it requires that its teachings must be taken on faith.”

All statists are religionists for whom their idol and focused religious prostrations is the power of the state. Once you ask them to Socratically drill the substance of their assertions, they quickly fall dumb and mute. There is a reason that journalism and teaching are four (five?) year degree programs that prepare one to simply be a stenographer or spokes-parrot for the state.

The cherry on the colossal cake is the majority of the “workforce” is unionized and government supremacist in its orientation. I put workforce in quotation marks because the dirty little secret is that teachers work very little throughout the day. Like so many unionized zombies, the return is quite disproportionate to the legend espoused by the usual suspects in the government/media/education complex.

Moonshine trial ends with split verdict,” the headline read.

It caught my attention as I seldom peruse the various political rags and news sites. I consider them complete wastes of time filled with Stalinist (or fascist depending on the source) political drivel, progressive mentality and centrist statism of the worst order. The article was no surprise to me in the mountain South however. Certain traditions won’t die.

I read of the recent case in my home county with a shit-eating grin. The woman defendant in the case was charged with a sundry of drug and alcohol charges after calling 911 to seek help for her husband (who suffers from PTSD) who was threatening to kill himself. Upon arrival on the scene, it was calm, and officers directed their attention to marijuana paraphernalia and what appeared to be illicit, untaxed whiskey.

After the state’s instrument of prosecution built an elaborate narrative of ruthless drug dealers and rumrunners, with logs of customers and sales, and these people being a grave threat to society, their case collapsed. All charges came back not guilty, save one, which we’ll get to momentarily. It appears the drugs on site were used to treat PTSD and traumatic head injuries. (I would be remiss to also point out they found other drugs, including morphine, but these were ‘legal’ with a state granted prescription) The ‘customer log’ was merely a log of money she owed to a couple people who they borrowed from when they were on hard times.

It was a classic case of Jury Nullification. Many of the juror’s and would be juror’s were asked if they thought marijuana should be legal and if they did, could they judge the case based on the current law. So much for that, eh?

One other charge came back with a hung jury. This was the charge related to the possession of what they claim is approximately 20 gallons of illegal alcohol.

The ironic twist to this part of the case was that the defendant claims it was her inheritance from the late Popcorn Sutton, the infamous Smoky Mountain moonshiner. The defendant claimed that the liquor in her possession was legal and the taxes had been paid on it. Let me remind you that the alcohol tax amounts to approximately 40$ per gallon. For comparison, a gallon of gasoline nets the feds approximately 20 cents.

How could this be? Taxes paid on moonshine whiskey? The defendant stated that the local sheriff’s department knew she was in possession of this whiskey since 2008 and has never bothered her about it.  She produced receipts that the taxes were paid in court.

To step back a little bit, Popcorn Sutton was arrested in 2008 and allegedly had in storage units, approximately 800 gallons of whiskey. When you are convicted with this type of thing, part of your sentence nearly always includes a fine, which is for the back taxes “owed” to the ATF/Treasury Department. My guess is that the defense is making the argument that the fine had been paid therefore the taxes are paid. Should said liquor not be legal to possess?

The fundamental questions are all wrong in the weapons prohibition debate.

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

The recent demonstration of badged cowardice and institutional incompetence by the various armed fat boy (there’s a reason why police uniform suppliers make production pants with a 60 inch waist) fraternities chartered by the local thugs-in-government showcased the drama that is the state.

The state herds the young skulls full of malleable clay into Marxist indoctrination camps for three fourths of the year to train the mentally handicapped to be more so and ensure any independent thinkers are rooted out and dealt with.

A young man (19), mostly likely drugged out on school-prescribed SSRI drugs, buys a number of weapons through the government background check system at a local BATFE field office fronted as a gun store. He

The entire vaunted “law imposement” system failed from the local to the Federal level. I suspect the FBI was just like any other giant police bureaucracy and had other more important matters to pursue like Russian ghost hunts, sports betting, college, sports bribery schemes,

I have spent years documenting the gross and massive incompetence, grueling sadism and overtly political nature of the American “just-us” system and its army of badged thugs praying on hapless taxpayers across the country on this blog.

I have spent the same amount of time documenting the consistent and systematic erosion of private weapons ownership.

No political party in America is friendly to the private ownership of weapons.

You will note that no political party has ever advanced the notion of restricting the possession of weapons by the government.

The reason these violence brokers posing as statesman want you disarmed is elegantly simple.

Your money is not enough.

“And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his Gods?”
– Thomas Babington Macaulay

Over 98% of all mass shootings in the USSA since 1950 have occurred in gun free (victim disarmament) zones where the government mandated private disarmament or corporate entities that licked the foul taint of the government to mimic compliance. For the shooters, bringing a gun in a government certified “gun free zone” guaranteed a rather hazard free opportunity to maim and kill as many disarmed humans as they wished or found the time for.

The FBI apparatchiks define a mass shooting as four or more people killed and/or injured during a single shooting incident, and that definition typically is widely accepted by law enforcement agencies, criminal justice experts and the media. One can see the NYPD providing a demonstration here when they shot nine bystanders while trying to apprehend a shooter. Please note that the geniuses in the thick black and blue line charged the man they were shooting at with the casualties.

Only in Amerika.

The FBI has never been a law enforcement arm to protect Americans, its primary charter is similar to the Nazi and communist house security organs to ride herd on the feedlot known as America. Its primary purpose is political fixing and national security state advocacy. The latest kerfuffle with Comrades Comey and Mueller are simply the latest manifestation of the disease vector.

The latest shooting that has the collectivists filling their pants with glee at the prospect of further eroding the tools available for the final push to full communism in the USSA. You’ll note that the overweight but well turned out black and blue line didn’t enter the school until the shooting stopped.

I also suppose that many illegal drugs were freely available at the government mind laundry if one needed to purchase these besides the psychotropics administered by the schoolags themselves. Somewhat takes the wind out of the sails of the gun prohibitionists hoping to keep illegal cargo out of the schools.

The darlings need to get home to their roach motels at the end of their shift.

It’s always amusing to see the nation’s largest boosters of infanticide shedding crocodile tears over the loss of larval stage humans in the indoctrination centers.

The Bolsheviks smell blood, the Amphibian will sign anything that comes across his desk in the Offal Office and the cute Menshevik couple, Mrs. And Mrs. Ryan-McConnell will deliver the hoplophobic goods.

The GOP has never been a friend of private firearms ownership. Ever.

The NRA has been crafting weapons prohibition and restriction legislation since they first started suckling Congressional members in 1934. Karl Frederick, NRA President in 1934, during congressional NFA hearings testified “I have never believed in the general practice of carrying weapons. I seldom carry one. … I do not believe in the general promiscuous toting of guns. I think it should be sharply restricted and only under licenses.”

Further: “I believe in regulatory methods. I think that makes it desirable that any such regulations imposed should not impose undue hardships on the law-abiding citizens and that they should not obstruct him in the right of self-defense, but that they should be directed exclusively, so far as possible, to suppressing the criminal use, or punishing the criminal use of weapons.”

Fuck you. There, I translated his homage to gun rights in America.

No more gun laws please and erase every one on the books now. That’s a good start.

If you believe in the untrammeled possession of weapons, you don’t have a single advocate in the Feral government.

Not one.

Publisher’s Note: I may be one of the few who is not surprised in the least a Grand Old Politburo dominated state apparatus is increasing laws, spending and theft at astronomical levels.

“So why isn’t the GOP going to do a budget? Because the vote on the 2019 budget — the last one Congress will consider before the 2018 midterm elections — will reveal that all the Republican promises on the deficit and debt, including its blind belief on dynamic scoring, were completely bogus.”

Mrs. Ryan and Mrs. McConnell know exactly what they are doing.

Per the latest kerfuffle on the Deep State coup, this is nothing new. Remember that Comrade Ted Kennedy sought assistance from the USSR in 1980 to torpedo the Reagan election.

10th Convention of CPUSA in 1938

And please don’t be mistaken that the Grand Old Politburo is allergic to communism since the party was built on Lincoln’s Marxist project during the brutal war on the Southern exit strategy. The Republicans have been a big government party since their inception.

“We might also note that for six of Reagan’s eight years, he enjoyed a Republican-controlled Senate (from 1981-1987), all the while racking up record-breaking deficits.

So, is a vote for the GOP a vote for less government spending, more fiscal restraint, and “personal responsibility.” It’s hard to see how one could possibly construe that from the historical record.”

Commies gonna commie.

On another note, as a “defense observer”, I want you to get a taste of what your tax dollars are funding. The DoD acquisition system is a very expensive financial wrecking ball that hasn’t produced a single new successful large weapons program since retiring the A10 Thunderbolt II rolled off the factory floor in 1984. You’ll note the B1B, F22 and B117 are either moribund or cancelled.

Here is what 20,000,000,000 debt-bucks delivers now posing as a functional aircraft carrier. Keep in mind the Navy accepted this pig. I want you ton know if I took one debt-buck and stacked it up 20bn times, the tower would be approx 1,360 miles high.

 “As of June 2017, the program estimates that EMALS has approximately 455 Mean Cycles Between Critical Failures (MCBCF) in the shipboard configuration, where a cycle represents the launch of one aircraft. While this estimate is above the rebaselined reliability growth curve, the rebaselined curve is well below the requirement of 4,166 MCBCF.

 In June 2017, the Program Office estimated that the redesigned AAG had a reliability of approximately 19 Mean Cycles Between Operational Mission Failures (MCBOMF) in the shipboard configuration, where a cycle represents the recovery of one aircraft. This reliability estimate is well below the rebaselined reliability growth curve and well below the 16,500 MCBOMF specified in the requirements documents.”

In English that means the aircraft carrier cannot reliably launch aircraft sorties. And we haven’t even discussed the problems with the F35 disaster.

F35: Construction costs stand at $400 billion at the moment, almost twice the initial estimate. In a time of budgetary restraints and cutting back, the federal government insists on sinking $1.45 trillion over the next 50 years on a plane that is proving itself to be a lemon. Considering the estimate was only at $1 trillion in 2011, the $450 billion increase in required funds indicates that the $1.45 trillion will likely increase further.

The U.S. atomic bomb Manhattan Project cost $26 billion in its entirety measured in today’s dollars. To put it in perspective, the F-35 program costs grew by “approximately one Manhattan Project every three weeks between 2011 and 2012.”

That is your money forcibly drained from you.

That’s what you pay for (and your unborn grandchildren) under duress.

They are debt-bucks after all.

“But now, in which direction has latter-day American Liberalism tended? Has it tended towards an expanding régime of voluntary cooperation, or one of enforced cooperation? Have its efforts been directed consistently towards repealing existent measures of State coercion, or towards the devising and promotion of new ones? Has it tended steadily to enlarge or to reduce the margin of existence within which the individual may act as he pleases? Has it contemplated State intervention upon the citizen at an ever-increasing number of points, or at an ever-decreasing number? In short, has it consistently exhibited the philosophy of individualism or the philosophy of Statism?”

The latest internecine conflict between the wings of the uni-party in the swamp deserve some credit for revealing the absolute buffoonery of our overlords where they can’t even conduct a conspiracy worthy of the name.

My case in this essay is that no law can possibly grant freedom without taking from another. None.

In the larger scheme of things, what the 13th Amendment granted in removing chattel slavery did indeed replace that servitude with another codified in the loathsome 14th Amendment.

Malum prohibitum and malum in se laws have both been used and abused to point where one can’t be distinguished from another.

These are what the law classifies as malum in se, as distinguished from malum prohibitum. Thus, murder, arson, robbery, assault, for example, are so classified; the “sense” or judgment of mankind is practically unanimous in regarding them as crimes. On the other hand, selling whiskey, possessing gold, and the planting of certain crops, are examples of the malum prohibitum, concerning which there is no such general agreement.”

I called the rule of law into question before and want to tease out a thread from the argument that probes even deeper into legitimacy.

John Hasnas makes the case:

“For with the acceptance of the myth of the rule of law comes a blindness to the fact that laws are merely the commands of those with political power, and an increased willingness to submit oneself to the yoke of the state. Once one is truly convinced that the law is an impersonal, objective code of justice rather than an expression of the will of the powerful, one is likely to be willing not only to relinquish a large measure of one’s own freedom, but to enthusiastically support the state in the suppression of others’ freedom as well.”

“Turkey is taking advantage of the war in order to thoroughly liquidate (grundlich aufzaumen) its internal foes, i.e., the indigenous Christians, without being thereby disturbed by foreign intervention. What on earth do you want? The question is settled. There are no more Armenians.”

Publisher’s Note: It’s amusing to watch the Deep State exposes itself in the proverbial raincoat through the many scandals emanating from the fetid swamp in Mordor on the Potomac.

Government is a death cult. It is the most profound mechanism outside of planetary extinction events to rid the globe of human beings.  There have certainly been disease vectors like the plague in medieval times that wiped out significant parts of Europe but even that can be attributed to human volition to a certain extent.

The state is an exterminationist by trade, ask the aboriginal Americans.

Since the first agricultural communities attracted the government predator’s eye thousands of years ago and led to the tax accountancy records Charles Adams first pointed out to us.  Hunter gatherer communities were quite a bit more difficult to pin down and cage within the confines of a tax jurisdiction.  Tax jurisdictions are the center of gravity for governments to germinate and expand their nefarious enterprises.

All government historically leads to totalitarianism where no human transaction remains unmolested by statist interference. None.

Whether the murderous paroxysms of violence in the endless wars created by tax jurisdictions dressed in fancy bunting and flags in ancient times or today have more advanced killing machines, the mission is the same.  Government will ultimately kill you for non-compliance of a seatbelt violation if your lack of obedience and insistence on resistance continues and escalates.

The more extreme examples of bureaucratized slaughter and mayhem visited on populations by governments are illustrative of the potential of every government to do the same. That is the genius of government, not only to elevate the absolute worst psychopaths to positions of power because they seek to rule others by default but it industrializes murder machines.  How else can one explain the killing fields in Kampuchea, the bone yards in the former USSR and the mass starvation campaigns either inadvertently or intentionally launched against subject populations?  From Rwanda to Armenia under the Turks to the North American aboriginal destruction in 18th and 19th century America, governments kill.

That is their ultimate fail-safe mechanism.  If their power is threatened in any fashion, the cage and the sword and the grave are essential tools of governance.
