The Nigel Farage-Nick Clegg Debate No. 2 on the EU: Deutschland Uber England

April 4, 2014

The second of the Farage-Clegg debates, this one sponsored by the BBC, was concluded less than a day ago, and the blood has been mopped up.

This second debate replayed many of the elements of the first, but the post debate polling, which had given the first debate to Farage 58%-36%, gave him this one also, but at 69%-28%.

While both these politicians seemed like scumbags in their own particular ways, Silverwolf would have to concur with the polls, not only in Farage’s debating execution, but also in a general sympathy with many of Farage’s views, while at the same time differing with him on several points in which Silverwolf agreed with Clegg.

We think this debate is quite prescient in illustrating what is going to happen in Western politics, and we think this will follow similar patterns in many societies. Thus, these two debates were quite significant precursers of future political trends.

Nick Clegg sounded very much like the Democrats in America, losing ground, and desperately trying to talk themselves out of a hole, while using inaccurate, legalistic language. Like Clinton’s legal deposition, and Obama’s “If you like your insurance, you can keep it”, Clegg’s assertion than only 7% of British legislation originated in Brussels as per a House of Commons report, was an legalistic lie. Farage then quoted from the same report as saying that an estimated 50% of all British legislation originated in Brussels, and then Clegg had to amend his lie by saying that 7% of all “primary” legislation originated there — that shows what an obfuscating liar Clegg is, and the usual worthless scumbag politician. He also went down the line, hitting all the correct issue buttons and catchphrases which the scientific brainwashing propagandists have told him win votes. It was sickening to see him mouth the same phrases, over and over, the same arguments over and over, and it’s no wonder that he lost. He is the Tony Blair clone, and dares to call himself a Liberal, when all he wants is more power for the mega-corporations, and having Englishmen slave for these foreign-owned companies, while anything the workers accumulate in what Clegg had the audacity to call “hard cash” is inflated away at whim by the Western central banks whenever the corporations call them on the carpet. Inflation keeps people slaving away all over the world; it is one of the chief tools of the collectivists for making sure that people never get out of their poverty, or economic rut.

Clegg had the audacity to say that it was all about “jobs, jobs, jobs,”, but the true aim of the free-market capitalist would be a society in which there was vast leisure, and people didn’t have to do these mind-deadening jobs, 40 hours a week. In a truly Capitalist society, with the Individual always placed above the Corporation, most people would be affluent, and would usually only work when they had the inclination. And they would have that inclination, not only for the remunerative rewards, but also because they enjoyed doing the work.

Such a truly Capitalist society would actually be the fulfillment of the oft quoted goal of the Communists: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs. This is exactly what would quickly result in a few generations at most in a truly free-market Capitalist society, with a Jeffersonian-Bill of Rights, and a Republic or Parliamentary Democracy with democratic elections to choose the representatives, and a rigorous separation of Church and State. Such a radically free society, the epitome of Classical Liberalism, or Libertarianism as it is now called, would bring about, paradoxically, a society very close to the Communist’s ideal, and would result in a vast increase in human happiness, as well as a vast decrease in mankind’s misery.

Another very weak point for Clegg was Farage’s production of a Clegg flyer from 2008 saying that he was then in favor of a referendum, but now he was against it, and that original promise had never been fulfilled. Clegg tried to make a case why a Democratic Referendum being put to the British voters was a bad idea right now. (And here he pulled the “our economy is so fragile and just recovering and this would be dangerous” argument while earlier he’d been touting all the wonderful economic benefits that EU membership has brought Britain. Man, do these goons readily think the public is that stupid, that they can’t see the lying words, and the absurd arguments, like a bad lawyer trying to defend a weak case?)

When it came to Farage’s weaknesses, it was his arguments against “involvement” in Syria, as if carpet bombing Assad’s government buildings would have involved British boots on the ground, and the little smile Farage gave when Clegg quoted Farage’s quote on Putin playing Syria masterfully, as if it were a game, showed that Farage is an immoralist too. And to say that Libya would be better under a Li’l Hitler like Moammar Ghadaffi, a Mass Murderer, a Mass Torturer, and a War Criminal (napalm in Chad), than it now is shows that Farage, like Clegg, is also an immoral scumbag. Nor was Silverwolf enamoured with Farage’s enthusiasm for fracking and nuclear energy, or his denial of global warming, which seems pretty self-evidently true from the erratic weather patterns and droughts, and increase in ferocity of typhoons and tornadoes. Global warming may not exist, but it would be prudent to act as if it did exist, rather than do irreversible harm by continuing to ignore it. But look at the lying and hypocritical Obama Administration. While Kerry is wailing about innaction on global warming, Democrat Senators Wyden and Merkley, as well as Liberal Democrat Peter DeFazio are all braying for a vast expansion in logging in the Oregon forests, what is left of them. Solar energy is obviously man’s ultimate solution, the problem of disposal of nuclear waste still not being satisfactorily solved, and sunlight being as abundant and free as air.

 Clegg, for his part was wrong on the Ukraine, where he echoes the Orwellian Newspeak of the West, ignoring the fact that this was a democratically-elected government overthrown by violent mobs which have installed two Nazi parties, Pravy Sektor and Svoboda, in power on the border of Russia. Farage took exactly the correct position on this issue, and said he could well understand why Putin has acted like he has, and why he feels threatened, given the recent words of NATO leaders and Ukraine’s Nazi government.

Clegg’s argument that Britain has more clout being in the EU than it has out was one of his weakest arguments, along with his opposition to a democratic referendum on the issue.  An opposition he shares with PM Cameron of the Conservatives, and MP Milliband, head of the Labour Party,  — all of whom oppose giving the British electorate a democratic chance to state their views via a referendum. Perhaps that was Clegg’s feeblest argument of the whole debate. (And it is interesting that Milliband has asked that Farage be banned from the TV debates in the upcoming elections. Those Leftists love censorship, despite their claims of loving free speech and democracy.)

Clegg made a big show of saying, yes, the British should and, he promised, would vote by referendum on any changes in EU laws, but then Farage pointed out that new laws and regulations are made almost weekly, and that the British haven’t voted by referendum on in EU in over 40 years. This made Clegg’s promise seem very hollow indeed.

Clegg also made a royal lie when he claimed that Farage had said that 400-plus million EU workers would flood Britain, while Farage had clearly said that they could, he never said they would. He merely said that, under current EU rules, they would be able to. This is the type of cheap shot that destroys a politician’s credibility.

There were two more sickening and subtle lies these politicians put forth in there delivery: one for each of them.

Clegg has this collectivist way of saying “we” and “us” when he refers to the wealth of the whole country, but when a stock-owner of a foreign corporation takes a dividend out of British industry, how does that benefit the charwoman? These collectivist’s “we”s and “us”es are used by American and British politicians to refer to the entire society, but the only reality you have of America or Britain is the everyday experiences you live through, the specific people you meet and interact with, and your relationship with them, and the place you live in and the surroundings. These are “you”, not some fictious “we” when the politician says “we are stronger for being in the EU” or similar lying generalities. That generality is not a reality, but the purchasing power of the charwoman’s hourly wage is, to her. She could care less about Britain’s balance of trade, or getting rid of roaming charges for the bourgeoisie tourists who go to Europe, when she can barely afford bus fare to and from work. When politicians say “we” and “us” in refering to the economy, run from them.

Farage’s big lie was on the function of government, which he put as some vague increasing of opportunities. Pure pablum, and way off base. You’d think that a British politician would know better, but things must have gone way down in Old Blighty since the days of Cromwell and the Glorious Revolution. Libertarians know that government has one fundamental function: the defence of property rights, which includes your body, and the defence of the Jeffersonian Bill of Rights and your inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, which in earlier documents was termed “property”. (Jefferson had the insight to see that the only real use of property was the pursuit of happiness, and that varied with each individual.) Moreover, the Libertarian has one core axiom to measure any political proposal: the non-aggression axiom which states that no man or group of men may aggress against the property rights of any individual.

Incidentally, it is interesting to speculate that, while England fought a ferocious war for survival against the German Nazis of WW II, they could now be legally invaded by tens of millions of Germans, and not be able to say a word agin it. So much for British Sovereignty. Deutschland Uber England may be the slogan of the future if Clegg gets his druthers.

We’d guess these debates will go a long way to strengthen Farage’s political position, and the positions of politicians who parrot his views. These views are on the rise, and as he correctly pointed out, the failures of Euro-collectivism are leading to more and more extremism from Nazis and other, economically-starved masses. Jeffersonian free-markets lead to true Liberalism; Clegg’s brand of “Liberalism”, which is its opposite in reality, leads to political extremism and Fascism. You can see it in Greece, in Hungary, and in Ukraine. Western governments, like Obama’s and Cameron’s, and their collaborating “opposition” parties, are losing ground with the public, who now get to hear clearly stated real opposition.

While both Clegg and Farage are propagandists and liars, it is clear from the debate results poll in whom the public places more credence.

Libertarians Crush The Democrats in Florida Special Election

March 17, 2014

Few political pundits recall that it was Dionysius of Halicarnassus who said that “history is philosophy teaching by example”. Certainly few Democratic pundits remembered that adage, so they were surprised by their very significant defeat in the Florida Special Election for the House last week. Had they realized the hatred of American Individualists for a constant barrage and assault on their personal energies in order to fulfill unConstitutional demands inflicted on them by the State, they might have anticipated the results. But they were obviously fooling themselves.

The Democrats lost, not because of the Republicans, but because of the Libertarian vote for Lucas Overby, which came in at 4.8%. This was two and two-thirds as much as the difference between the Democrats and Republicans, and unusually high for a Libertarian candidate, who normally garner 1-2% of the vote, though there have been a few cases where they topped 5%. This shows that the work of Libertarian writers and thinkers, along with the campaign ideas of Ron Paul, and combined with the obvious incompetence of the Democrats in everything they touch, has brought a lot of people to see the necessity of voting Libertarian. Additionally, we’d guess that a lot of younger voters, who voted for Obama, now realized they voted for a propagandized Image who has burdened them with trillions of new dollars of debt, imposed a healthcare mandate on them that will take most of their spare cash for years to come if they have any kind of decent income, and made it even harder for poor youths to get any kind of work through jacking up the minimum wage law. We’d bet a lot of these former Obama voters just didn’t turn up, or moved over to the true Classical Liberalism of the Libertarians. Obama’s enforcement of the pot laws, in the face of so many states legalizing it, or semi-legalizing it, shows the Youth better than anything else what an old reactionary fogey is the President.

And even the Republicans were scared. The Libertarian Frankenstein which Ron Paul sowed together and revivified has stormed out of the castle and is terrorizing the political landscape all over America, and the Republican’s even had to have Senator Rand Paul call in his support for candidate Jolly, the very son of the man who energized that Frankenstein. Both the Republicans and the Democratic peasants were out with their flaming flambeaus, looking for the giant who might topple them. The fact that the Libertarian got 266% of the difference between the Republican winner and the Democratic loser must scare the hell out of both parties, and you can bet they’ll start to incorporate some of Libertarian rhetoric in their speeches, since they are both parties of conforming lemmings, with political dogmas and image-making based on false, un-Jeffersonian, ideologies.

It was also clear they were scared from the fact that the media made little or no mention of the unusually high Libertarian vote, not wanting to call attention to the fact, which attention might serve to make it “cool” to vote Libertarian.

Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson got roughly 1% of the vote in 2012. A Libertarian gets almost 5% in a bellweather House election in 2014. It shows you what 17 months of big State Socialism does to people’s psyches.

This is just the beginning.

If the Ukraine Were Mexico: A Parallelogram Situation Fantasy

March 9, 2014

Silverwolf has just read the BBC headline that a Professor had said that, yes, the invasion or incursion into Crimea by probably Russian troops was a violation of International Law. Duh, of course it is.

But so is overthrowing a democratically elected government by force with mobs murdering police, and then tolerating Nazis in five of the cabinet positions in the new, overthrown government. Liberal Democrats would condemn to High Hell any Nazi or KKK elements that showed up at a Tea Party or Libertarian or Ron Paul rally and patrolled the crowd with baseball bats and Swastika armbands, but here is Barack Obama and Diplomat Nuland funelling over $5 billion dollars to a government that is largely Nazi and which tolerates many Nazi groups. Ron Paul was criticized by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an enabler of Fascism; I wonder what they would call President Obama’s actions in installing Nazis in a government overthrown by violent Anarchists and Nazis who would have been mowed down in America if they had got anywhere near the White House, and Silverwolf wouldn’t have had much sympathy for them, because that is not the way you change government. You do it through elections, or through non-violent Gandhian methods like the Boycott or the General Strike or the picket line or the sit-in, as long as you don’t block the fire exits. But when you storm buildings, and burn police to death, and beat police armed only with shields… well, for America to legitimize that with its support is a great tragedy. And for jolly Old England too, the birthplace of Libertarianism and Free-Market (along with Holland), or at least as Free-Market as it was possible to be in those mercantilist days, when the Monarchy was the equivalent of the Congress, Presidency, Supreme Court and Federal Reserve combined into one half-senile (from inbreeding) megalomaniac.

So Putin’s incursion into a region that would be almost certainly pro-Russian in a Democratic election is called a violation of international law, as it probably technically is, but Obama’s backing of violent Nazis who overthrow a Democratic election is honky-dorey, huh? That’s your “liberal Democrat” Obama.

Obama is a lunatic, and he is bringing us to the brink of a world war, for no valid reasons. Elections were coming up soon in Ukraine. If Yanuko had been tried for his crimes, that would have been an orderly, legalistic and just way of handling the situation. But violently overthrowing him, and then blaming Putin for putting his troops in when a Nazi has just been installed as Defense Minister, and another as Chief Prosecutor, is just insane. What is going on in that brain of Obama’s? Any half-drunk bar room philosopher could have predicted this one. Of course Putin wasn’t going to sit around and do nothing when, as Professor Steven Cohen of NYU and Princeton so aptly put it, you’ve moved the Berlin Wall from Germany to the edge of Russia. And the NATO threat to give missiles to the new Nazi Government? How did our great statesman President think Russia was going to react to that one after the history of World War II? That heckler who heckled Obama about when was World War III going to start really hit the nail on the head.  The President tried to laugh it off, rather hollowly we thought, but that heckler was more realistic than our Chief Executive. The President, this so-called Liberal who supports Nazi thugs in government, has rekindled the Cold War in a few short days with his stupidity. Add ‘im to Aretha’s Chain of Fools.

Silverwolf, as you know, loathes Vlad Putin for his equivalent of a war crime in aiding Syria, Iran, and Libya under the War Criminal Ghaddafi, as well as his murder of a defenseless whale, worth much more than his miserable carcass, but he’d never watched Putin in detail, except for a few minutes of his recent press conference. So he went back and watched the entire hour-long conference, and was fascinated.

There are several striking things about Putin. First, he looks like he doesn’t have a wrinkle on his face. Make up? Or a guy who sleeps soundly at night. Secondly, he talks very fluently, like a lawyer. No Ron Paul-esque flounderings around like a beached seal, filled with “you knows” for Putin; he had very few pauses. And he seemed to know exactly what he wanted to say. Silverwolf nyet knows Rooskee, so he didn’t know precisely what he was saying, but he sounded calm, and not very vicious. Also, he seemed to be giving quite depthful analyses and reasons for what he was doing, building the case that a democratically-elected President, who had been violently overthrown, had requested that he intervene in his country. That sounds pretty International-Law-ish to Silverwolf. If President Obama were overthrown in an invasion by Cuba, or overthrown by violent mobs funded by Cuba, and he fled to Canada and asked the Canadian Prime Minister to intervene to protect the lives of Americans from Cuban mobs, wouldn’t that be justified? So Putin’s incursion into Crimea might be technically a violation of International Law, but Crimea was artifically annexed to Ukraine by Krushchev (Nikita S. — and please don’t forget the “S” so you don’t confuse him with another Nikita Krushchev), so why is the world suddenly so eager to acknowledge the validity of that action by the Soviet dictator of that day on this issue?

But what was most striking about what he was saying was that most of it was interesting. How many politicians could you listen to who could give you an interesting and depthful analysis of a current critical situation that sounded like a deep-thinking university professor? Putin was interesting; Obama is boring.

Some of his dodges, though, were a bit ridiculous. He claimed that no Russian troops had entered Crimea, and those armed men were all pro-Russian people’s militias. You know, you can buy those uniforms in an army surplus store, he argued. But he said it in way that showed he obviously didn’t believe it himself.

The other thing about Putin is his appearance. He has such a characteristically Russian face, if there is such a thing, you could see why they picked him for the KGB. And he has such a weird look in his eye when he looks straight at the camera, and appears to be ever-so-slightly cross-eyed, that it gives him the appearance of intense, almost fanatical, concentration. Finally, his face is extremely animated as he talks, the eyebrows going up and down, the cheeks scrunching. At one moment, a reporter’s musical cellphone goes off, and Putin looks a little exasperated, but is courteous and waits till the woman leaves the room with a comment like “pretty music”, but you could see that the King of the Russian Empire wasn’t too pleased about a stupid reporter interrupting his press conference. Silverwolf can’t blame him.

So Silverwolf hates to say it, but he almost liked Putin, or at least, was quite impressed with his intelligence, and the depth of his thinking. He can see why Russians could like him, and he certainly isn’t letting the flies grow on him when Nazis are coming to power right on his borders; Nazis armed with nuclear missiles and backed by Germany. Putin really kneed the hypocrisy of the West in the groin with his incisive comments, especially after all the garbage one has heard being drummed out in the U.S. press and the BBC. And Silverwolf is damn glad those ethnic Russians and Tartars in the Crimea will have Russian soldiers around to protect them from the Nazi gangs roaming around Kiev, now being given legitimacy by the Obama Administration by calling them the Provisional Government.

Now, let’s imagine a parallelogram fantasy.

What if… in North Mexico a movement arises calling itself L’Azteca Action, which claims that Gringos, Americanos, Protestants, and Capitalists run the entire economy of the region, grinding the poor Mexicans into the dirt, and that they should be expelled and their property confiscated, and that the People want a pure Mexican Mexico. They advocate making Spanish the only legal language. Then there are several assaults on Protestants by gangs of Catholics resulting in hospitalizations, and a general hostility is whipped up against American retirees who are “bleeding the land and El Pueblo Mexicano.” Capitalism is denounced, and murderers of American civilians during the Revolution, like Pancho Villa with his raids in New Mexico, are glorified. Villa is called a great hero, a Mexican Patriot, and his crimes are overlooked. Gangs of thugs armed with baseball bats and dressed in T-shirts bearing pictures of Villa, and the symbol of Villa’s militia which had carried out atrocities against women and children during the Revolution, patrol the streets as “security”, and the chief of police of the entire region as well as the chief prosecutor are L’Azteca Action party members.

Then it turns out that Russia has funnelled over $5 billion to L’Azteca to stir up trouble in the region, and suddenly tens of thousands of terrified American retirees, Protestants, and businessmen are fleeing to the border and stampeding into America. There is extensive media footage of American ex-pats kissing American soil upon arrival at the U.S. Border at Calexico and Naco. When L’Azteca gangs begin to overrun government buildings in areas where democratic local elections had protected the Rights of Americans, Protestants, and Capitalists, and a Party member, who has called these three groups “scum”, heads the Security Ministry, then President Obama decides to send American Troops into those border regions where Americans, Protestants, non-Mexicans, Capitalists, etc. form 70%-plus majorities, to protect American Citizens, and there are welcoming crowds lining the roads, waving American flags. In response to the American “invasion” of Mexico, Russian President Putin warns America that it is violating International Law and there will be a heavy price to pay. The rhetoric and name-calling escalates on both sides. Defiant, the American President maintains his troops in Northern Mexico, and brings in even more troops to protect other non-Fascist regions. Putin, claiming the moral high ground, and talking about morality and principle, offers to supply L’Azteca Action with nuclear weapons, according to a NATO-like treaty the Russians have with Mexico to come to its aid if its sovereignty was ever threatened, and in order to “protect the Mexican People and show that infringements of International Law have their costs.” And, inevitably, when L’Azteca Action, supported by all the Latin American nations, gets its missiles, it immediately demands the return of the lands stolen by America during the Mexican-American War which the Great Libertarian Henry David Thoreau went to jail resisting. That includes California, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada. Just give us that, and there will be Peace, cries L’Azteca Action, and massive, violent mobs all across Northern Mexico, whipped up by State media propaganda, demonstrate in support. War Against the Capitalists, Gringos, English-speakers, and any Mexican against our Holy Cause! Liberate Nevada! Free California. New Mexico for the Mexicans!

And soon the missiles start flying.

Putin’s incursion is illegal, and so was Yanuko’s overthrow. But the practical effect of Obama’s actions is to throw Russia into a huge insecurity. After all, this could well mean NATO missiles in the hands of a Nazi Regime right on Russia’s borders; a Regime, backed by Germany, which had fought with Nazi Germany against Russia, and murdered hundreds of thousands of civilians, while glorifying mass murderers of Poles and Jews like Stefan Bandera and Chmelnitsky. Of course this was going to make Russia paranoid, and make all the ethnic Russians, and what was left of the Jews and Poles in Ukraine after the decimations of World War II, very insecure. Any idiot could have figured that out, but Obama couldn’t. This action shows that he is not fit to be President, and out of touch with reality. This is a very dangerous miscalculation by the President, and shows his lack of true Statesmanship.

Put yourself in the Russian’s place, America. Would you want a fanatical, bloodthirsty Pancho Villa to have nuclear weapons on your border, pointing at you? That is what Russians must be feeling right now. The Bipartisan Fascists, led by President Obama, have set the Cold War and World Progress back about a quarter-century with their and his stupid, puerile, and very dangerous actions. What a great tragedy for the world, and for America. And what a blundering fool is the President of the United States.

Arizona’s SB 1062: Here Come the Racists

February 25, 2014

Arizona’s SB 1062 is an unlawful, and probably unConstitutional, Racist attempt to overthrow the laws of the United States, which forbid discriminating in business based on race, color, creed, etc. and now so-called sexual orientation.

Now, Silverwolf discussed in detail in his blog, “Is It Constitutional in America to Discriminate in a Business?: An Internal Debate”, https://lobobreed.wordpress.com/2013/08/05/is-it-legal-in-america-to-discriminate-in-a-business-an-internal-debate/, whether it was Consitutional and/or legal to discriminate in business, and he went through an entire series of arguments and counter=arguments with himself, finally arriving at the conclusion that it was indeed illegal. Why?

It is illegal simply because businesses advertise their products priced in U.S. dollars, that is, Federal Reserve Notes. Now, it says on those notes that they are legal tender for all debts, public and private, and thus, if someone operates a business, and offers a good or service priced in U.S. dollars, then they must accept your legal tender note, since the government has promised you already that such a note is legal tender for any private debt, which is the price of the goods or service. Thus, the seller would be forced to accept these notes if he has offered goods or services to the public, either by being open for business, placing his prices in his windows or attached to the items in the store, or advertising them in the media. They are publicly offered debts, and in a real sense, that person has offered a contract to all comers that he will trade his good or service for their Federal Reserve Notes. To refuse to serve them would be to Violate a Contract, which is a Crime in both theoretical Libertarian doctrine and actual U.S. Law. This would be true even if the note was an old Silver or Gold Certificate note, backed by precious metal. (However, if the person paid in Silver or Gold Coinage, then they might well be able to discriminate, but that is another legal discussion, and here we are dealing solely with Federal Reserve Notes. But we’re certain, given the “dedication” and religous purity of these people who don’t want to do business with Gays, that if they were running a Restaurant that served $300 dinners, and a Gay wanted to purchase a dinner and pay his bill in $20 Gold pieces or Silver Dollars, that they would steadfastly refuse them service — that’s how religiously dedicated and pure they are.And we’re sure that if they suddenly needed emergency medical assistance and were rushed to a doctor, and the doctor was a Muslim, and refused on religious grounds to treat, or even touch, the sinful flesh of any non-Muslim, that they would understand, and respect his Religious Liberties, and die quickly.)

Now the so-called Conservative Group that is advocating this anti-Capitalist Law, the Center for Arizona Policy, states “SB 1062 seeks to ensure that state laws that violate the religious liberties of private persons cannot be enforced simply because the government is not technically a party to the case.”

But that “the government is not technically a party to the case” is precisely a big whopping Lie, as we have illustrated above. The Federal goverment is a party to the case, because it says on the Federal Reserve Note that the Federal government says this is a legal tender note that can be used to service any private debt anywhere in America, regardless of in what State, and the seller of the goods or service is refusing to accept what the Federal government has ordered him to accept if he is going to price his goods and services in U.S. Dollars. So the government is right in the midst of the trade, and is thus very clearly a party to the case. The contract they promised to the bearer was violated by the seller, and thus the seller must be punished under Law.

Now, if the seller could price his goods or services in, say, Swiss Francs or conch shells or ounces of tea, then perhaps the seller might be able to legally discriminate in his business, but this again is a different political theory question, and alternate currencies are viewed with askance by the U.S. Treasury and the government, although in a Libertarian Free-Market Society we should be able to price or purchase items in whatever currencies we, the buyer and seller, can agree on. If we think the Zimbabwean Shilling is sounder than the U.S. Dollar, then we should, in a Libertarian Society, be able to conduct our Free Market in whatever currency we choose. That would be a truly Free Market, and will come in the Future. But, here and now in America, if you price something in U.S. Dollars, and publicly advertise it, the buyer should be able to settle the debt in U.S. Dollars, whomever they are, and the government must guarantee that reality.

And finally, if your religous liberties make it impossible for you to conduct your business in America in Federal Reserve Notes, as under current law, then you’re always free to not start a business that will violate those liberties, and your always free to seek your living in some other manner, or starve to death. (Oh, we forgot, there are food stamps even for Racists, paid for by some poor Black working stiff.)

This Bill is nothing but a Communist-Racist attempt to instill that Ol’ Southern Segregation in the midst of Arizona.The Governor of Arizona should lob a big lunger of Libertarian Free Market Spit on this unAmerican Bill, and veto it.

If the Governor signs the Bill, all Free Market non-Racist Americans should use that grand old Irish Free-Market weapon: the Boycott, and Boycott Arizona. Don’t go there, and don’t buy their products.

If the Governor signs the Bill, then, as they used to say in the ghetto, “Boycott, Baby, Boycott!”

America’s Major Political Party: The B. F. P.

February 23, 2014

America has one main political party into which fall 97% of the people: the B. F. P. or, as it is better known, the Bipartisan Fascist Party. This party compromises virtually all of the Democrats and Republicans in this country, and though there are many so-called Independents, in the final results the radically different parties — the Libertarians and the Socialist Workers Party for example — generally get only a smattering of votes, perhaps 1-3%. The Lemmings flock to the other two Fascist Parties, both big organs of big government-corporate collaboration in the looting of the Individual, be he worker, small businessman, artisan, or small investor. All are fodder for the giant corporate and government interests that suck, for example, $685 Billion under the Democrat Obama out of the hands of private Capitalists and into the coffers of the military-industrial complex, and pay the average Federal Government employee an annual salary of over $100,000. Some defense surely is needed against countries like Canada, that club baby-seals to death in front of their mothers and skin them alive, or Mexico with its sadistic public bull-baitings and murders. Surely such Miscreant Nations do necessitate some kind of military defense against them, but why are American taxpayers forced to pay for the military defense of rich Socialist countries like Germany and Japan, while property taxpayers in America are constantly asked for more money for police because the government is failing in its Jeffersonian responsibilities to defend property rights, which include your own body (i.e. in Libertarian Theory, an assault on your physical person is considered a property rights violation since your body is part of your property)? Imagine if just a fraction of the more than $100 billion we spend every 365 days defending Europe, were given to counties across America to provide real defense against common crimes. That should be the function of the “Defense Department”, not running hundreds of military bases all over the globe, in secure places like Germany and Japan. Let those bloodsucking Fascists pay for their own defense instead of constantly sucking off the American Taxpayer. The Bipartisan Fascists force you to pay for the defense of these dolphin-butchering, whale-slaughtering Racists, and you, the public, go along with it. What a nation of passive wimps America has become.

At the same time, the B.F.P. is bringing environmental havoc all over the globe, and the chaos is finally hitting those areas of Eastern America and Great Britain that for long have ignored the constant deforestation that is occuring in Liberal Democrat States like Oregon and Washington in America, as well as the South, and the other regions of the Earth that are usually raped for their trees. The BBC today had a real-time map of the massive deforestation that has gone on under the Liberal Democrats,since 2000, not only in America, but in Latin America, Australia, Canada, and Sweden. A Dead Planet will be the legacy of Liberal Democrats like Barack Obama, John Kitzhaber, Ron Wyden, Jeff Merkley, and Peter DeFazio, collaborators in the destruction of the Earth, and the stooges of the big timber corporations. These Collaborators have sold America so deeply into debt-slavery with their massive governmental schemes, militaristic budgets, easily-exploited welfare programs, and corporate subsidies and give-aways, that they now maintain, as was predictable long ago, that we must rape the forests and sell them to China to pay our debts.

Notice how the debts they created, unConsitutionally and Democratically,  suddenly became “our” debts. This is the inevitable result of Democracy or a Democratic Republic without a Jeffersonian Constitution and Bill of Rights. And the War on Drugs, and earlier Prohibition, as well as Individual Fascists like the transvestite J Edgar Hoover, destroyed the Bill of Rights long ago. President Obama’s proposed “Indefinite Detention without Trial” is just characteristic of this fact. Obviously, Democratic elections are a necessity, but majority rule without a Bill of Rights protecting every Individual and his property will quickly lead to Fascism. In America, that establishment of entrenched Fascism has only taken the 84 years since Hoover really kicked in the Governmental-Corporate Alliance, which was  greatly augmented by his twin, FDR. Both were corporate Fascists, though history is written as if they were exact opposites. There is little difference between Hoover Dam and Obamacare at root.

So now the Liberals like Tony Blair, and Julia Gillard, and Barack Obama, have wrecked the Environment so badly that their countries and citizens are having to pay huge prices and go through living hells just to survive. They ignored the Environmental Movement, and that movement itself has been obviously a failure since it has failed to stop the Destruction of the Planet. The Environmentalists have aligned themselves with the Liberal Democrats who are destroying the Earth, and they are afraid to criticize them. Even the Environmentalists are going along with the destruction of the Earth, not only by not criticizing and vigorously defending those Liberal Democrats, but by taking no vigorous actions that would bring them down, like mass demonstrations at State capitals, boycotts such as the Founding Fathers used against England, and impeachment of leading Democrats for failing to protect the Environment. They’d rather pussyfoot around while the Earth, the Trees, and the Animals —- and finally Mankind, — are destroyed. They don’t have the guts to attack the Democrat Forest Rapists and the Motherearth Frackers.

So that is how it is in America: One Big Fascist Party, and a few believers in Jeffersonian Libertarianism or Marx’s Workers Paradise.

The Bipartisan Fascist Party is destroying the Earth, and you are letting them.

A Forgotten British Libertarian: William Bailward on Welfare

November 25, 2013

The more things change, the more they stay the same.That certainly is a dictum to keep in mind as we see the beginnings of the unraveling of the welfare State under our current government

But the horrendous mess the Democrats and Republicans have created in America is no surprise, given the history of welfare in the English-speaking world since Queen Elizabeth I.

In reading William Bailward’s book of essays on what Americans would call welfare, one was struck by how similar the situations and the mentality of Bailward’s day were, circa 1905-1912, with those of present day America.

Bailward’s “The Slippery Slope and Other Papers on Social Subjects” gives a clear picture of the problems that confronted British welfare from 1601 until Bailward’s day, and those problems are indistinguishable from those we now find in America, with 47 million on food stamps, the dollar buying a quarter of what it did in 2000, and 51% of the population receiving a check from the government every month — the exact percentage by which Obama was re-elected. Bailward had obviously not only thought about government welfare a great deal, but he also served as Chairman of a Board of Guardians, which was the body of people who would hear welfare cases directly from the applicants, and then make a dispensation. Bailward must have heard thousands of applicants in his career, which also included election to the British Parliament, and serving on a Board in one of the poorer sections of London. He knew welfare, both in theory and practice, and the insights in his essays should be carefully pondered by both Libertarians and members of the Bipartisan Party who want to raise the standard of living in America.

Bailward traces the history of British welfare back to the days of Elizabeth I, who, in 1601, instituted the Poor Law, which basically said that everyone who was “impotent” (i.e. unable to work or support themselves) should receive aid, while those who were able-bodied should be found work. Sounds a lot like modern America, don’t it.

The results of this were disastrous. For centuries England struggled with terrible poverty amongst its masses, and for many decades virtually everyone in the countryside was on a parish dole. The care of the “impotent” came to be the main function of the Poor Law, and the bit about finding work for the able-bodied was generally ignored. “Pauperism”, a concept Bailward talks much of, was rampant, and a multitude of British thinkers and artists, from John Locke to Lord Byron, wrote out their own schemes for raising the appalling standard of living

This sorry state continued until 1834, when the poor law was revised, and the equal eligibility of the impotent and the able-bodied was changed to make the working man eligible first for aid. This led to a large drop in the number of paupers.

There are several concepts that Bailward discusses which most American Libertarians probably overlook when considering welfare.

Firstly, there was the divergence between “indoor” and “outdoor” relief. Indoor meant the workhouse or poorhouse, where the recipients had to live in the institution to receive aid. Once “outdoor” aid got popular — aid which one could go and pick up and then go home — the number of paupers greatly increased.

Secondly, Bailward makes the very important distinction between “poverty” and “pauperism”. Poor people, or people living in poverty, who worked, lived frugally, and though poor managed to support themselves, are distinguished from “paupers”, who lacked any ambition to get off the dole, often drifted around, spending the days chatting or lounging on the parish lawns, and generally made a career out of cadging money, food, or clothing from various charities or government bodies. “Pauperism” sounds a lot like many of America’s homeless, although their ranks have been greatly swelled since the Bank Bailout Bill under Bush which Obama and most Democrats and Republicans voted for, and which has inflated the cost of necessities three or four times for Americans (and foreigners). Many of the homeless under Obama do not have pauperistic attitudes, but were overwhelmed by his and the Fed’s Inflation.

Bailward is a great believer in private charities giving aid, instead of Boards of Guardians dispensing goverment tax monies. And as in America, the tax rates did nothing but continuously go up in his day.

As Bailward was writing these essays, England was in the process of shifting away from the Poor Law and its 1834 Revision, into a system where each type of welfare had its own branch. For example, they began an old age pension scheme which gave everyone over 70 a pension. Then they had a school feeding program. And then various other programs were introducted. Bailward laments that the various bureaucracies that handled each new type of welfare had no coordination with each other, so that many people were receiving multiple benefits under multiple programs, and there was no central statistical bureaucracy that could keep track of it all. With the coming of the computer, that problem should theoretically be gone.

All in all, William Bailward’s “The Slippery Slope” is a work which all Libertarians should peruse, especially those interested in welfarism. Its discussions will broaden your understanding.

Congressman Peter DeFazio Helps Kill Thousands in the Phillipines

November 16, 2013

Liberal Democrat Congressman Peter DeFazio’s support for logging, and his current O&C Bill, which would drastically increase logging in the National Forest, show the rotten hypocrisy of the Democratic Party, and their brutal and callous disregard for the implications of their actions around the globe.

We know that trees are carbon banks, which take up free CO2 in the atmosphere, and lodge it within their bosoms until they die and decay, when it is gradually re-released. We have also seen major Democratic figures like former V.P. Al Gore speak out forcefully for some kind of control of global warming, which is increasing the ferocity of typhoons, and making world weather much more volatile and destructive. Yet, when it comes to the money over the environment, so-called “Liberal” Peter DeFazio is willing to continue to destroy the Oregon Forests, selling the wood to Red China, in order to partially offset our horrendous trade deficits, and to continue to expose Oregon residents to toxic pesticides like atrazine, which is banned in the European Union.

But when we see the devastation that has taken place in the Phillipines, as tens of thousands of women and children are killed in a typhoon, we can see the real impact of this immoral politician in Washington and his fellow pro-logging Democrats like Senators Wyden and Merkley, and Governor Kitzhaber,, as they all continues to push for environmental destruction, and disregard the incredible misery they and their fellow Tree Butchers are bringing about in the world, as they pursue their desire for money.

Peter Defazio, with his $150k annual Congressional salary, and his fat pension which he will enjoy in his retirement home in New Zealand, will not have to suffer the way the people of the Phillipines are suffering because of his actions, and the actions of loggers around the world. He will not have to leave his island home in the South Pacific and “relocate”, as his immoral pro-logging agenda continues to raise sea levels, and destroy the drinking water and living spaces of the South Pacific Islanders. His actions show he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about them.

In Silverwolf’s opinion, Congressman DeFazio didn’t kill tens of thousands of Filipino children in the typhoon — he murdered them. He knows very well what chaos and misery his actions are causing around the world, but he persists with them.

But we’re sure he’s sleeping very comfortably in his bed tonight, as a typhoon of suffering engulfs the women and children of the Phillipines.

These are the men you elect to office.

Three Political Suicides: Thatcher’s Poll Tax, Gillard’s Carbon Tax, Obama’s Obamacare

November 11, 2013

How the mightly are fallen, and all because they wanted to mulct that little bit of extra out of the golden goose of the Public. When we look at political collapses we can see how taxing the people at the wrong point and in the wrong way quickly leads to political death for the arrogant politician, and no better examples serve to illustrate this truism that those of PM Maggie Thatcher of the isle of Great Britain, Julia Gillard of the isle of Australia, and Barack Obama of the isle of Chicago.

Thatcher’s Poll Tax was a valiant attempt to impose the fairest tax of all, the Poll Tax, on long-suffering British property owners, on whom, as in America, the whole cost of local government fell. The Poll Tax is the fairest tax because it hits every citizen equally, and excludes none from the depredation. But the fact that millions of people. who previously never had to worry about paying tax, now had an annual financial burthen on their hands, was too much for the general public, and Thatcher’s Guy Fawkes explosion of British Politics was soon over.

Julia Gillard, always trying to sound like a cross between Winston Churchill and Richard Nixon, put her 30% carbon tax on mining just at a time when commodity prices had already peaked, and were obviously due for a huge “correction”. You’ll notice that Gillard never once called for an end to logging in Australia, or pressured the Indonesian Forest Rapists to curtain their destruction of the planet, but she thought she could mulct 30% out of the commodity corporations to shore up her huge Socialist bureaucracies. A few months later, and Ms. Gillard has crashed, and Tony Abbott is the new archdeacon of Aboriginaland, now called Australia after the Theft.

Finally we come to the current example, as arrogant President Obama, who thought he could ram Obamacare down the throats of the American People, and did so, has to back up his blatant lies about people being able to keep their insurance plans if they liked them, with a Clintonesque addendum explaining that people didn’t really hear what they heard the first time. We saw an initial report from NBC that 7 million Americans would lose their current plans and have to pay higher premiums, folks who undoubtedly thought that Obamacare wouldn’t touch them. When we saw that, we knew Obama’s Party had probably lost the next election. Obama won by about 1 million votes, but raising the premiums on 7 million “folks” who didn’t expect it is going to lose Obama and the lying Democrats far more. His popularity has plunged in the last few weeks to a reported 39% approval rating. People know when they’ve been lied to, and they don’t forget hits to their pocketbook.

But that was a week ago. Yesterday we read a report that over 50 million Americans could lose their current insurance and be forced to pay higher premiums for “better coverage”. What do you think that is going to do when those angry millions visit the voting booths in ’14 and ’16?

Three arrogant politicians: Thatcher, Gillard, and Obama. Three beautiful Political Suicides.

Mussolini’s Triumph: Obamacare, America Goes Fascist

October 17, 2013

Benito Mussolini must be smiling in the ash pile, 68 years after his death,  as the United States of America goes Fascist, forcing its citizens to buy insurance from private corporations.

Mussolini summed up Fascism in these words, “Il Fascismo e il Corporatismo”, Fascism is Corporatism, and today, October 17, 2013, with the failure of the Senate to stop the implimentation of Obamacare, Fascism has been firmly established in America.

No longer will a citizen be allowed to just exist on his own, violating nobody’s property rights, and not demanding that anybody else’s property rights should be violated for his benefit. The Constitution acknowledged the Human Being’s “inalienable” Right to his Life and Liberty, and to be left alone in privacy, but now Obama and his Democrats have finally overthrown those Rights, and turned all Americans into the slaves of the corporations — either that or live in poverty and let someone else slog all day to pay for your insurance, a kind of forced corruption of the Individual by the Government — or else pay the fine/tax, which of course forces you to dedicate your life and liberty to getting the money to pay the fine, a form of involuntary servitude. Clearly this is not only grossly Immoral, but also Unconstitutional, and no matter what the supreme court says, 5 to 4, it is clear to any logically thinking American that it is Unconstitutional.

It has taken 237 years for the overthrow of the Jeffersonian Constitution by the Corporate Fascists. Jefferson said that government, though a necessary evil, was essentially an evil because of the massive power it placed in the hands of individuals in the government, and that only the chains of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights could hold it down.

It took the Totalitarians 237 years to overthrow the Constitution of Indiviidual Liberty. Today they are laughing, and Jefferson is crying.

And on the ash pile, Mussolini is smiling.

Socialist Democracy Leads to Nazism: Germany, Greece, the U.S.

October 12, 2013

Unfortunately, one of the most consistent correlations we see is that Socialist Democracy ultimately leading to Nazism.

This has happened over and over again, first in Germany in the 1920s and early 30s, and now in Greece, where a blatantly Nazi party, Golden Dawn, had approx. 15% support in the recent past, although the murder of an anti-racist rap musician, and the government arrest and crackdown on the party, seem to have lowered the support level in recent polls. 

However, the BBC in 2012 reported that while support for the party was in the low teens at that time, support in the police force was at 20%, and the Beeb gave details of multiple incidents of how opposition activists had been arrested, beaten and stripped naked, and nothing was done about it. They reported over a hundred attacks on immigrants in the last year, but again nothing was done until this popular musician was murdered by the Nazis. So when 15% of your populace and 20% of your police are Nazis, you can see the results of the Sociaiist overspending that went on for years, that finally led to a debt crisis, which in turn demanded austerity measures if the entire economic system and currency were to remain functioning, which in turn led to social grumbling that finally manifested itself in the doctrines of hatred put forth by the Nazis.

In Germany, the story is well known and has been told by countless historians. We think Norman Mailer put it best when he said that what brought Hitler to power was inflation. Inflation is the robbing of purchasing power from the people by the government; it affects all classes and produces prodigious social turmoil.

But inflation is the exact policy that the Federal Reserve, and the Democrats have been pushing for years, using every gimmick to revivify their rotten Keynesian economy, along with all the Keynesians in Euro-nirvanaland and Japan, and nothing has worked. On the contrary, the poor have been hit by both massive price increases in their cost of living, while having any savings they might have earn nothing, instead of 5%. Now Obamacare will further economically weaken the middle class, and the slaving youths, while flooding what doctors we have left with millions of new, usually quite sick, indigents. Many elderly who supported Obamacare because they are Democratic Party ideologues will die off as they find they cannot find a doctor to serve their Medicare, and the Medicaid people will get the very worse doctors and the trainees, if they wait for months. Thus will Obama and the Corporatists reduce the elderly and sick-poor population, although the President’s mind is so set in Ideology that it is unlikely that he realizes this. But, obviously, Government will reduce its Social Security and Medicare obligations this way.

And the massive debts run up by the Bipartisans under Obama are destablizing the currency of America, just as they have destabilized countless previous economies throughout history. Vice-President Cheney might say that deficits don’t matter, but he was wrong. Already the U.S. long bond has dropped 20 points from its high, and while they are saying it is because of a “recovery”, it could well be because foreign and American owners of U.S. Treasury paper are starting to unwind some of their positions, since there is no attempt whatever to “pay down” the debt, only add to it at a slower rate. (Just let me keep drinking for a few more months, man, and then I swear on a Bible I’ll quit!)

As the Obamaflation destroys more and more American’s lives, and forces them to slave longer and longer for less and less, the social tensions will increase, and people will look for scapegoats. Foreigners and Muslims seem to be popular targets right now in America, but we imagine the Racists will soon add more variety to the choices.

Capitalism in a Jeffersonian Republic with democratic elections and a Bill of Rights leads to prosperity, and usually tolerance, since its hard, or at least not diplomatic, to hate the guy your trading with, especially when he’s helping you to make a living, and he treats you square. Socialism always begins with the premise of class hatred and class envy. Libertarian Capitalists see absolutely no difference between the hobo and the billionaire, as long as they adhere to the Libertarian non-Aggression axiom. Their Natural Rights are exactly equal and equally sacrosanct. Any regime, Socialist or Fascist, which violates their Rights is Criminal. Which is why we fortunately have the Bill of Rights, which disregards how much property you own, unlike the “Democratic Communists”.

The swings to the Nazis in Greece and Austria, and the revival of xenophobia in Europe are predictable signs that Euro-Socialism is beginning to crumble, despite America micturating away over $100 billion/yr for the Socialist’s defense, and our massive loans to them from the Federal Reserve via the World Bank and IMF. No amount of money is every enough for such spendthrift governments, just like the local governments in America, who, during good times, throw their money into bloated state pension funds that permit them to retireGr like kings at 60 on the taxpayers money for the rest of their lives, and then come begging to the taxpayer when the juice runs out. They will crumble too.

There has never been a completely free, Capitalist society, with a Jeffersonian Bill of Rights, in history, so we don’t know what it would be like. But it would be consistent with Human Dignity, the dignity of being a Free Human Being, free from Government depredations on ones labor, life, time and wealth.

Until such times, Human Beings will plod down the miserable road of massive, bureaucratic, socialistic government, grow bitter, and end up in the anti-Libertarian, racist, socialistic doctrine of the Nazis, just like Germany and Greece.

It’s time to break that cycle.
