Obama The Incompetent: Liberalism vs. Libertarianism

June 28, 2010

Now that President Obama and his Liberal Democrats have been ruling for a year and a half, the American public can see into what an absolute mess those who voted for Obama, and those who did not vote, have plunged this Republic. They have imposed their agenda of Liberalism, a false, unsound, and economically unworkable organized religion, on the American people, just as their European and Australian counterparts have done, and the inherent economic sense of the Yankee is finally awakening to their utter inability to deal with the economic problems of which they themselves are the cause. It is truly pathetic to see such a great nation led by such a bunch of incompetents and Mafia tricksters, out to loot the treasury and the hard-working individual taxpayer, in the interests of the corporations they work for. All the lies and obfuscations told by the President during the campaign(and often pointed out by Ms. Rodham’s supporters) were overlooked in the euphoria of his victory, as Liberals high-fived each other on their “finally” getting someone “good” in the White House. Eighteen months later the native intelligence of the American people can judge how “good”, and how correct the perennial Liberal Democrats were.

It is interesting to contrast how many grievous problems now exist in America thanks to the Liberal Democrats who voted for Obama versus how many of these problems would not exist if Ron Paul or a Libertarian had been elected President.

For one thing, the rule of Habeas Corpus would have been re-instated after Bush and Obama and their Congresses have destroyed it. Ron Paul would have restored this Civil Liberty to the People, but Democratic voters, and the people who couldn’t be bothered to vote, shot down that “radical” idea. Now we have that cornerstone of Fascism continued under Obama, thanks to his Democratic Party supporters, but of course, since they hate individual liberty (witness their Fascist support for jailing people for cannabis possession, and the income tax), that is no surprise. And, of course, not a squeak of protest from the “very Liberal” Democrats in Congress. I haven’t seen any of them sitting in at the President’s Office, or demanding the re-instatement of Habeas Corpus as a pre-condition for their continued support for Democratic Party Bills. Not a squeak.

And where are all those Peace Demonstrators screaming “Bush Murderer” now? Quiet as the churchmice they are. And closing Gitmo? Oh, please don’t bring up that minor issue. Prosecuting the waterboarders? Forgive and forget.

So once again, thanks to the Democratic Liberals, we still have the massive loss of lives and treasure in Afghanistan, now Obama-Rodham’s War. This callous Warmonger, and his Democratic Party supporters, continue to murder Afghan civilians, and get young Americans killed and maimed, while he strolls around playing golf, in the best Republican tradition. How many Afghan children, oh Liberal Democrats, has your individual vote for Obama killed so far? Does it bother you?

But let’s move on to that “minor” issue of 29 dead coal miners. Now, almost a year into the Obama’s so-called Administration of America, we have coal miners being exposed to dozens and dozens of safety violations that are punished solely by fine. No jail time for repeatedly endangering the lives of other human beings. (Contrast this to the way State laws treat the repeat drunk driver.) And the “solution” for Obama is to place a union representative in a government position. And of course, several months after the easily preventable tragedy, the issue is virtually completely forgotten, except for the grieving relatives who will have to live with the Administration’s inability to protect the lives of miners, even after being in power for a year, and with several months to prepare to take office.

Now, let’s look at how Libertarianism would handle this situation. First off, a mine owner would have to certify to anyone he contracted to work in his mine, that it was safe to work there, or tell them it wasn’t. The correct OSHA safety guidelines would work as a general guide to the potential employee as an indication of whether the mine was truly safe, and since unions would be permitted in a Libertarian society, as long as there was no coercion, either to join or not to join, then those unions could investigate individual mine safety before recommending to their members, or anyone, to work in that mine.

Now, what would happen if a mine owner fraudulently claimed that his mine was safe to work in when it truly wasn’t? Upon first discovering this very serious crime of a safety violation, which would be a breach of contract between the mine owner who had claimed that the mine was safe to work in and the employees, the punishment might well be a stiff fine, going directly into the pockets of the workers put at risk (not their union), since it would be possible that a mistake had been made, an act of nature had changed the safety of the mine, or the mine owner was genuinely mistaken in his perceived safety of the mine.

However, on a second (intentional or unintentional) safely violation, what would be the punishment? Nothing less than the complete confiscation of all the assets of the mine, along with the jailing of the mine owner. If people were killed in the incident, then the owner would be sentenced to life in jail without parole. And all those assets would go solely to the immediate families of the miners killed or injured. In compensation for the loss of their loved ones, they would be instant multi-deca-millionaires.

And what would be the effect of such a “draconian” punishment on the owners and shareholders of other mines? Silverwolf would guess that they would make damned sure that their mines were always operated in a safe manner, as they would no longer have an incentive to endanger people’s lives and receive a slap on the wrist from this wonderful “Liberal Administration”. With Libertarianism, this atrocity would be solved overnight; with the Democratic Liberals, it will tragically be repeated over and over.

And likewise with the oil spill in the Gulf. Though they’d been in for a year-and-a-half, — and just weeks after Obama, in his wisdom, decides that, yes, this foolish process of fouling up the oceans to get a little more energy to waste on American gas-guzzlers from the Socialist car consortium in Detroit is fine by him, so let’s open up drilling — they still hadn’t “reformed” the agency that was supposedly protecting the American public. Guess they were “working on it”, as all Liberal governments perennially seem to be, but “clearly more needs to be done”. Oh really?

Yet, all those “bright” Democratic Party lawyers in Congress never had the imagination to think that perhaps an oil spill of the future could cause more than $75 million dollars in damage, and a year and a half into their rule, they still had not changed this liability cap to an unlimited one.

And how would Libertarianism have challenged this problem? Simply by never allowing a “cap”, which is an illegal or immoral limitation on what a corporation would have to pay back individuals whose private property it irreparably damaged. And which means also that, right now, the individuals affected on the Gulf Coast, plus the US taxpayer, would own all the assets of BP. And the shareholders of BP would have to take the haircut, not the American Individual Capitalist.

It’s the same with unemployment, which would be solved virtually overnight by the abolition of the immoral minimum wage laws, which restrict an Individual’s Inalienable Right to Freely Contract with another Human Being. And likewise with all vending permits, and all business license requirements, would be abolished once and for all from this Indian Land, where free-trading, and the freedom to vend on public or private property, without a license, would be re-instated, as it existed in early America, on the frontier West and South, and in the tenements of New York and other immigrant magnet cities. Freedom to be a Capitalist would once more exist in America, but not only in small patches, here and there, for short periods of time. It would exist everywhere in America, and for all times.

But the Socialists would rather have their 9.8% official unemployment rate, and all their free goodies for their constituents, just as in Greece and Spain, than that principles of Justice should apply to Economics. At least many who voted for the Misery are now themselves amongst the Suffering, and there is a certain Poetical Justice in that fact.

It’s a similar situation with the deficit. Obama told us that a stimulus package was needed to get America back on its feet. Ron Paul said it would not work, that they would come back asking for more, and that the additions to the deficit would continue to destabilize the economy. And he predicted that when the package was proposed.

Now Obama and his economists are back, arguing that we need a second round of stimulus or we risk a double-dip, just as Ron Paul predicted over a year ago. Looks like Ron was right, and Barack was wrong. Again.

Moreover, let’s not forget the millions rotting in the American Bastilles for the “crime” of possessing a medically-useful herb known as cannabis, helping to bankrupt the States and the Federal Government, and in clear violation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. But don’t expect those “Champions of Justice” amongst the Liberal Democrats to do a thing about it, even though the President could go on television in an hour and urge Congress to legalize it. Let’s remember that those millions rotting in jails right at this moment would have been re-united immediately with their families a year and a half ago, if Ron Paul had been elected President of the United States, and approximately 700,000 people a year would not have there lives disrupted by these Prohibitionist Miscreants. This continued heinous tyranny is brought to you courtesy of the Democrats in Congress, our nicotine-addicted, self-righteous, prohibitionist President, and all the voters who put him there. They are morally responsible for the continued immorality of these Prohibitionist Diktats, and let’s never forget it.

Modern Liberalism is a false, unworkable, immoral doctrine, based on the perceived whims of FDR and Keynes to conditions in a pre-digital world, almost 80 years ago. But the people continue to suffer from its consequences. The Obama Administration is a textbook example of how and why such an Administration is doomed to failure, and is, in essence, no administration at all. Except to administer restrictions on Freedom.

And that used to be known as Fascism.

Prolonged Detention: The Next Step in Obama’s Fascism

June 9, 2009

Wisechief Jefferson taught us, along with the Founding Fathers, that detention without trial is one of the hallmarks of totalitarian regimes. All throughout history, tyrannical regimes have used this tactic to silence their critics, and hide their crimes. From Henry the Eighth to Hitler to Stalin, this method has proved one of the favorites of the Miscreants of History.

And now it’s President Obama’s turn. In a speech on May 21, the President proposed overthrowing the Bill of Rights, which requires that the government charge you and give you a speedy trial, by insinuating the heinous practice of “prolonged detention” into our legal code, that is, indefinite detention without a charge being brought or a defendant’s prompt trial. This piece of Fascist scat has been dressed up by the President as a new and necessary part of our legal system, although we’ve survived without it very nicely for nearly a quarter of a millennium.

In his speech, Obama criticises Bush’s “ad hoc” method of dealing with legal issues, but then goes on to say that he will “reshape the standards” in line with the “rule of law”, a phrase which he used several times in his speech. It never seemed to occur to our very bright President, that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is the Law of the Land, and anything that directly contradicts these documents is an attempt to overthrow the “Rule of Law”.  He mentions that al-Qaeda and its affiliates are at war with the United States, but he fails to mention that anyone who deliberately tries to overthrow the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is in a state of war against the Law of the Land. Obama talks of a “legitimate legal framework” in phrases reminiscent of Governor Romney’s pledge, made during one of the Republican televised debates, to “call in the lawyers” and see how he could get around the Constitution. It’s obvious that Wisechief Jefferson well knew what kind of caitiffs would be coming down the line several hundred years from his time, still trying to impose tyranny on human beings.

Obama went on to talk of “developing an appropriate legal regime” outside of the courts, and even the military commissions, in order to be able to hold people for “prolonged detention” — that is, indefinite imprisonment without trial, without a sentence, or without saying how long they will be held. In other words, 100% pure unadulterated Fascism.

In never seemed to cross the President’s supposedly brilliant mind that some future tyrant in America, a Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or Franco, could use such a law to round up and jail forever their political opponents, or that a law that directly contradicts the very clear demands of the Bill of Rights could be unconstitutional. Fortunately, brighter minds like legal scholar Jonathan Turley, and Senator Russell Feingold, have pointed out that this latest Fascist proposal of the Obama Regime is almost certainly unconstitutional, and would fail a court test. Happily, Senator Feingold is going to hold Congressional hearings on this obscene proposal, so that the whole Fascist stink of the latest Obamaism will be able to be inhaled by the American Public.

The constant stream of totalitarian legislation coming out of the Obama administration should be a wake-up call to all those Democrats who truly favor the Rule of Law over all the unconstitutional early meanderings of the Obama regime: the massive giveaways to the corporate business sector at the public’s expense, the continued persecution of medical marijuana proponents by the Federal government in states that have legalized it, the “voluntary national service requirement”, the expansion of Bush’s faith-based initiative, the continuation of the military commissions and the continued suspension of habeas corpus, the failure to prosecute torture,  and the escalation of the war into Afghanistan and Pakistan.

President Obama is the greatest threat to the American Constitution since President Bush. Only the names have been changed to protect the guilty.

Obama’s First Hundred Days: The Audacity of Hypocrisy

April 26, 2009

Barack Obama doesn’t disappoint. At least, he didn’t disappoint Silverwolf’s expectations for another Presidency filled with hypocrisy and phony and immoral policies, just like the previous Clinton administration, as we view his first hundred days in power. All Silverwolf can say is, after the first hundred days, thank goodness there are only 1341 days to go.

First off, let’s look at the President’s lying policy on medical cannabis. During the campaign, Herr Obama pledged to not prosecute any medical cannabis suppliers if they were in compliance with State laws. In other words, if the States legalized medical cannabis, the Federal government wouldn’t intervene. But now, in blatant contradiction of his “solemn” campaign pledge, Obama’s hand-picked DA, Eric Holder, says the Federal government will prosecute a grower in California, Charles Lynch, who was growing in accordance with California state law, and will seek the maximum five-year penalty. We can see that, when it comes to cannabis, Obama is as big a Fascist as Clinton, the Government of Singapore, or Comrade Castro.

And of course, he is drumming up the “war on drugs” again, the same tired rhetoric we’ve heard from every Democrat and Republican since Lying Bain-of-the-world Johnson. An instant worldwide end to prohibition would end the drug war once and for all, by taking the profits out of it. But such a simple solution is too logical for the simple mind of our new simpleton President.

Then, of course, there is Obama’s continual escalation of his war in Afghanistan, a hopeless cause as the British, Russians, and anyone else has found out who has tried to control that mountainous region. Obama is already sending more troops than he originally said he would be sending, and let’s remember that he has asked for a 9% increase in the Military-Industrial giveaway of the wealth of American Capitalism to the military suppliers. Some military is of course necessary, but we’d guess we could defend our own borders for one-fifth of what we spend maintaining 700 military bases around the world.

Obama has also committed his first war crimes in Afghanistan, killing women and children, it was reported, during the drone attacks on Islamic militants. Perhaps the women were named Michelle and had two daughters? Perhaps their income was $2.7million? Perhaps the President would not have authorized this attack if the price were his wife and children? But, as Madelaine Alldull once said, that’s collateral damage for ya.

Now let’s move on to the President’s disgraceful behavior in virtually nodding to the Queen of England, a Democracy and once a hot-bed of civil rights, while bowing low before the King of Saudi Arabia,  a Kingdom that chops off hands and heads, forbids women to drive, and forbids Christians to bring in their Bible. Should an American President bow low before such a tyrant and civil rights violator, while merely nodding to someone who oversaw the largely peaceful liberation of dozens of former colonies in her Empire back into the hands of their native owners? Has the Queen of England denied Muslims and Jews the right to worship in her overwhelmingly Christian country? The answer is no, and for that alone the Queen of England, if anyone, deserved the deeper bow, not the nominal head of a civil rights cesspool. De rigeur, the White House tried to wriggle out of this one, by claiming that Obama bowed so low before the Saudi King, because the King is so short. However,  they failed to mention that the Queen of England is, in point of fact, even shorter, something that was never mentioned by the White House staff. .

 But of course, what can we expect when Obama appoints Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, a woman whose husband has received millions upon millions of dollars for his official library from the Saudis?  No conflict of interest there, is there Mr. President? And this woman is supposed to be an objective force in the midst of Middle East negotiations. But Ms. Rod-’em has already been turning up the pressure on the Israelis, in accordance with the wishes of her masters in Riyadh, by threatening Israel that if it didn’t start talking to the Palestinians, even while they continue to rain down missiles on Israeli civilians, already killing and maiming many, that Israel will lose its “support amongst the Arabs” in its opposition to Iran’s nuclear threat. “Support amongst the Arabs”? Is the woman insane, or merely relaying the message from Riyadh, which is now the message from Obama’s Washington? This is all exactly as Silverwolf expected.

The President’s wrecking of the US dollar, as he adds two Trillion dollars to the national debt in one year, and passes out hundreds of billions of dollars to the donors of the Democratic machine, has already been commented on extensively in Silverwolf’s many blogs on the subject, so he won’t go over old ground again. Suffice it to say that Austrian-oriented economists and investors know exactly what a virtual crime, a legalized theft of the wealth of the American people, under color of Law, is now taking place. Unfortunately, it will take a collapse of the dollar to bring most Democrats around to a sense of reality. But they voted in their own collapse, and as we are all responsible for our own actions, you can’t get too worked up when someone slits their own throat. We warned ’em.

However, perhaps the most egregious hypocrisy of the new Administration is the fact that they have not removed all the myriad overthrows of our civil rights laws — the unpatriotic and Bill-of-Rights busting Patriot Act,  and the Military Commissions act, which overthrows the ancient Principle of Habeas Corpus. The fact that the Democrats have not said a peep about these civil rights usurpations in the first hundred days is very telling. They realized they have pacified the womanized American public. A nation of sheep on estrogens.

And finally, as a cherry on this audacious cake of hypocrisy,  we come to the President’s disgusting warm-handshake and big smile when encountering the Collectivist of Caracas, the obese Hugo Chavez, dictator of a thin people. While diplomatic decorum would require that a head of state not blatantly insult a nominal head of a dictatorship, Silverwolf believes that the head of any country that not only violates human rights, as Venezuela does, but also engages in whipping up hatred against religious minorities, as Chavez did when he called Jews the killers of Christ in a speech not long before a synagogue in Caracas was invaded and trashed, and its occupants beaten— such a head of state should be treated with the utmost frigidity by any American President.  Such blatantly racist inciting to riot should have required no handshake at all, merely a sombre nod of the head. But what would one expect from someone who regarded Rev. Wright as his spiritual mentor, and who hung out for twenty years with folks who would give Louis Farrakhan their Man of the Year award. Being a racist bigot and a Fascist doesn’t seem to deter the President from flashing his biggest smile, and extending the hand of “friendship”. But Silverwolf, and America, can dispense with such “friends”.

No, President Obama has not disappointed Silverwolf’s expectations in the least. But actually, since this blog has taken a day to write, Silverwolf has good news for the American people. Now there are only 1340 days to go.
