Cliven Bundy & The Rule of Law

The Cliven Bundy saga reminds me of the Trayvon Martin case: it is a very squishy example of a very real problem. Because the facts of these cases could be interpreted either way, they divide the rank and file rather than uniting us against the real enemy from above. In light of this, rather than the nuanced Bundy case, it would have been nicer to see the government forced to back down on a cut-and-dried asset forfeiture in which property was permanently confiscated from someone never convicted of a crime (like Rudy Ramirez), or an eminent domain case in which the government seized private property for the benefit of a private developer (like in the case of Vera Coking).

Sometimes I think that political operators deliberately choose cases that aren’t clear-cut because rather than despite the fact that they will generate grassroots activism on both sides of the aisle. In order for this to work, the case must have merit and flaws on both sides of the argument. Continue reading

On Tomorrow’s Show…

Both the events at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada and in Eastern Ukraine demonstrate how anti-government action begins and how it might unfold…let’s talk about the causes and prospects in both situations and I’ll tell you my gut on the geopolitical significance of what Putin’s up to…3-6PM ET on News 95-5 and AM750 WSB.

 

Here are a couple of visuals to get you in the mood…

 

Just wondering if you think there’s anyway Putin & Lavrov are gonna post a selfie tooling around Moscow in the back of the ZiL? Somehow, I doubt it.

The Rise of “The Dissipant”

As a libertarian, I don’t advocate for social legislation and I think doing so undermines limited government. That doesn’t mean I don’t actually have social values. The beauty of liberty, however, is that it creates social good without social legislation. Liberty comes with responsibility. In a free society, liberty and responsibility go hand in hand because there are no moral hazards created by illusory safety nets or the artificial disconnection between actions and natural consequences. In a free system, experiencing the consequences of one’s actions gives rise to a stable, just and productive society with human relationships and mutually beneficial bonds at its heart.

I think it is reasonable to claim that the history of the United States through the mid-20th century demonstrates this principle. I don’t think the culture here was perfect then - I certainly would have been miserable with the economic and social limitations my mother experienced – but I would say in net we have traded a strong and virtuous culture for a less rigid but also less valuable one. Specifically, we seem to be losing the legacy of our industrious past and are losing sight of the connection between behavior and outcome.

At first I assumed that this was merely the inevitable consequence of a society in ever-increasing material surplus, but I have since concluded that this debasement of the American character resulted in large part from a deliberate attack that began in earnest with the ratification of the UN Treaty in 1945. The UN Charter provides a blueprint for, among other things, cultural infiltration that would create a character-type in American society that I call “the dissipant.”

The dissipant is a person who allows his wealth (not only material but educational, cultural, familial), as well as his time, youth and opportunity, to dissipate rather than harnessing them and capitalizing on them in keeping with the historic tour de force of American drive. Characteristics of the dissipant include narcissism, sloth, resentment of responsibility or consequences, a sense of entitlement, inability to appreciate genuine achievement, etc.

I know I risk sounding like a crank or a victim of Good-Ol’-Days syndrome, and I don’t take that on lightly, but as I have begun to see the influences on my children of the cultural trends in this country, I am forced to address this real issue. My inquiry reminded of a profound point I came across in Tragedy & Hope: A History of the World in Our Time, by Carroll Quigley, the misguided whistleblower who sought to celebrate The Grand Conspiracy by exposing it. Quigley pointed out that culture changes when succeeding generations are divorced from their parents’ values. This can happen naturally as with technological advancements, but it can also be done deliberately, and I believe it has been by the very forces Quigley was attempting to serve with his insight.

David Rockefeller defines The Grand Conspiracy and hints at its tactics:

For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.

The great barrier to Rockefeller and his fellow One Worlders’ goals, however, is the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights and its defenders, the American people. In order to neutralize this force, divorcing succeeding generations of the American people from a dedication to the cornerstones of the American Experiment is a vital necessity. They pursue this divorce by transforming the culture in numerous ways, including subverting education, manipulating immigration policies and patterns, undermining local communities, “de-stigmatizing welfare,” waging the Drug War, pursuing foreign conflicts and through many, many other powerful initiatives you see all around you.

One could argue that these myriad movements can be boiled down to two fundamental tactics designed to “normalize” and subjugate populations for an easier transition to world government: depopulation and deindustrialization. The dissipant, by design, serves both of these goals well, but we might be able to counter the trend simply by recognizing its existence and girding our children against its allure. To further this end, I hereby coin the term “dissipant.”

Truth

There Is Something Wrong

There is something wrong and we all know it.

What do I think it is? I think it is that power is concentrated in the hands of those with different goals from the people from whom that power derives. I call the top of the pyramid “the power elite” and the source of the power “the sovereign citizen,” but whatever you call it, you have probably noticed the disconnect between our agents, the government we pay for and which acts in our name, and our wishes – better reflected in campaign promises than legislation.

But what can we do? I always answer this question in the same way: Start by not talking yourself out of the truth.

Saturday’s Show 7PM-9PM ET: Tax Day Cometh

blog-21-december-military-spending

I have some crazy facts and figures about how our governments spend our money. I have concluded that of the almost 40% of our money they take, 75% is wealth redistribution and 25% is govt services including legitimate defense. To arrive at this breakdown, I count much of defense spending as cronyistic regressive wealth transfer to the military industrial complex, and I use the figures below* to demonstrate my point, to wit: Out of the top ten defense spenders, China, Russia & India spend about $300B; the other six besides the US are our indisputable allies and they spend about the same in total: $300B.

World total $1,753

US $682

China 166
Russia 90.7
UK 60.8
Japan 59.3
France 58.9
Saudis 56.7
India 46.1
Germany 45.8
Italy 34

We could actually spend nothing and the odds should be even. But let’s say we want to spend as much as China, Russia and India combined and make the odds 2 to 1 in our favor? That would mean we would spend $300B. In the event of actual hostilities, of course we would ramp up crazily (WWII cost $4T in today’s dollars), but if we just wanted to be as powerful as all our enemies combined, isn’t one way of thinking of it to just match their spending? Of course we couldn’t be the world’s policeman, but that would likely make us safer for two reasons: one, we would stop drawing the world’s fire; and two, we would take away the moral hazard from government to create a threat we need them to fix – that is, they do poke hornets’ nests to justify military spending (and also to benefit cronies – another big reason we have unnecessary enemies in this world).

I understand I’m greatly simplifying the concepts here, but I find that’s a great place to start to access our instincts on some of this stuff that the media and the govt deliberately over-complicate so we won’t call them on it.

What do you think? I’ll read comments from here, facebook and twitter, and also look forward to your calls at showtime: 404-872-0750 and 800 WSB TALK.

*I show the chart above so you can visualize my point but I use the more recent numbers from wikipedia for my calculations.

Report Shows Miriam Carey Shot 5 Times in the Back – Her Death Ruled “Homicide”

Originally posted on American Everyman:

UPDATE:Miriam Carey’s autopsy report - shot 5 times. Suffered multiple abrasions and contusions.

UPDATE: See detailed information at the end of this article that explains why Al Sharpton has remained deathly silent on this particular civil rights case.

———–

One of the most shocking and depressing stories that I have covered since I started this website has gotten worse. Much worse.

Miriam Carey’s autopsy report is out and it would appear that our initial reports (conspiracy theorist leaning as they were) were completely correct.

Miriam Carey was murdered in cold blood.

Here is a shocking leak of high ranking Turkish officials recently planning to shoot a missile AT TURKEY to create a cause of war with Syria! I have been attributing these leaks to Putin and Russia and believe they are a sign of a real change in the international order. (For the segment I read on the air, start at 11:00, but the whole tape is interesting.)

Here is the best of the Waco documentaries I referred to. April 19, 1993, was the date of the fire that ended the 51 day siege on the Branch Davidians in Waco. After assessing all the evidence, it looks to me that this started out as a PR stunt by the ATF.

Show Saturday 3PM-6PM ET

I saw reports that there was a Craig’s list ad seeking crisis actors to rehearse a mass casualty event at Ft Hood just two weeks ago. I get the impression it’s fairly normal to have drills but I hate coincidences like this. I will be discussing this on the show, as well as the similar coincidence last year surrounding the TSA shooting at LAX. LA police reveal with amazement that they had rehearsed THE EXACT SAME SCENARIO just three weeks before, to the obvious exasperation of the FBI lead investigator in the background – check out his reaction to the LA cop’s revelation!

Here’s the Craig’s list ad about Fort Hood. It doesn’t describe the exact same scenario like the LA drill did – I guess depending on how common these things are, could be a coincidence. But if they ARE very common, why did it take a lone responder 15-20 minutes to take down Ivan Lopez at Fort Hood the other day? That part seems a little fishy to me…
fort hood craig's list ad

Wondering whether the ad is real? Here’s the guy who found it calling the number before the ad was taken down. Sounds real…

Here is Aaron Alexis sneaking around the hallways supposedly during his shootout of the Navy Yard last year. This video always looked funny to me…could it be he was filmed in advance taking part in one of these ubiquitous drills?
