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.

PM Julia Gillard and Bob Carr: Collaborators with Evil

April 21, 2013

Silverwolf could barely keep down his vegan muck, the other day, after reading about Australian PM Julia Gillard’s trip to Red China and the comments of the Foreign Minister Bob Carr. There were agreements signed on annual meetings, termed “architecture” in the NewSpeak of the modern totalitarian State, “defense”, and some arrogant and illogical doublespeak from Carr sanctioning the Chinese annexation and theft of the independent Buddhist nation of Tibet.

This Australian-Chinese Agreement is one of the most immoral actions by a Western “free-world” power that Silverwolf can remember for a long time. It ranks with President Clinton’s immoral decision to give the Fascist Chinese America’s covetted Most Favored Nation trading status, which, not only immoral, has been such a huge factor in America’s burgeoning trade deficit with China, and the making of Fascist China such a world economic power. It should have only happened when Fascist China embraced democratic elections, got out of Tibet, ended torture and mass executions after kangaroo courts, stopped the theft of land from the peasants by the Communist Party apparatchik developers, stopped raising Saint Bernard dogs for slaughter, and adopted a Bill of Rights along Jeffersonian lines.

Without those basics, no nation that America trades with should be granted MostFavoredNation trading status. How can you love Liberty and Jeffersonian Natural Rights values, and at the same time collaborate with Fascist Criminals such as the ruling Chinese Communist Party? This is a point on which Silverwolf disagrees with his candidate for President, Ron Paul, and even with Jefferson. We do not think that we should have “friendly relations” with any Fascist or totalitarian regimes, for Libertarians should view such regimes as mere gangs of Criminals, to be dealt with accordingly. Trading with a totalitarian nation strengthens that nation and its dictatorship, and so we think boycotts and sanctions are the quickest and one of the few non-violent Libertarian weapons to use against these gangs of Criminals. How many African lives did Mrs. Thatcher’s refusal to impose sanctions on South Africa cost? However, it must be acknowledged that those moral souls living under the dictatorship being boycotted may and will suffer some personal harm from sanctions against the entire nation, but we think this is a lesser evil than the fact that sanctions can bankrupt an immoral government and bring it down faster and with less bloodshed that a frontal assault. Every additional day that a dictatorship persists, there are more victims.

In the Bible, it says, “Thou shall not suffer a witch to live”. If you substitute “dictatorship” for witch, Silverwolf would agree.

And why is it that in the West, when someone aids or abets a murder, robbery, or kidnapping, we treat the people who helped the criminals who actually committed the criminal acts as criminals themselves? The lookout who helps the assassin carry out a murder, and aids the murderer’s getaway, is himself treated as a criminal, in part responsible for the murder, and jailed for a long time. But when it comes to National Leaders aiding and abetting Fascist regimes to continue in existence, to murder and torture, and even strengthen their stranglehold over the People, no crime is ever mentioned, and no government leader is brought to trial.

Lloyd George was never tried for the mass murder of young British men during World War I. No, rather he was hailed as a hero by the British Socialist Working Class, which conveniently never mentioned his collaboration and support for the murder of British youths by the hundreds of thousands in a war that was the joy of the munitions makers and the General Staffs of both sides.

So Gillard and Carr’s collaboration with torture and murder, in the form of support for the current Red Chinese dictatorship, is a crime in our eyes, and taints not only the Collaborators Gillard and Carr, but the whole Australian Nation, which has a responsibility to protest and overturn such immoral actions by their elected government. How can the Greens possibly support such immoral Fascist Boot-lickers?

Carr’s doublespeak on Tibet is most disgusting. This craven brownnoser had the gaul to reiterate several times that Tibet was part of China (the big lie), as if he were an expert on Tibetan history, that Australia accepted this big lie, and would support this tyranny, but at the same time Tibet should be autonomous while still remaining within China.

It’s obvious to any moron that “autonomy” means self-rule and self-determination, and how can one possibly talk of self-rule if the people of a country are forced into an unnatural confederation with a country that has oppressed them for over 60 years, tortured and murdered them, and destroyed the temples of a religion that began as a complete rejection of murder and violence? The original Buddhists were the Non-Killers; the Men who refused to kill. And now Miscreants like Bob Carr and Julia Gillard force the religious descendents of those Non-Murderers into a perverse confederation with a Government of Murderers.

And did you see the Sydney Herald photo of the Harridan Hyena Shrew, Ms. Gillard, sitting with a class of Chemistry students at a Chinese high school? Gillard had the manic smile of a hyena when it smells a freshly rotting carcass, while surrounding her were a few forced half-smiles, but also the non-smiling grim faces of rows of children growing up in a totalitarian society, where not to conform can mean torture, starvation or jail. Gillard and Carr have helped to institutionalize these children’s bondage with their support of Communist China; another crime the Ages will not forget.

 Silverwolf believes that one day Libertarian children far into the future, reading the history of the late 20th and early 21st century, will spit on the names of Bill Clinton (and the Congressmen who voted to give Red China MFN status), PM Julia Gillard, and Bob Carr, as well as all those who helped support and strengthen this Big Brother totalitarian regime of Red China. They have installed their names forever on the Wall of Infamy.

Enviro-Libertarianism: A New Necessary Political Outlook

December 7, 2012

It seems to Silverwolf that what the world and the West and especially America really needs is a new political movement which he would call “Enviro-Libertarianism”, a combination of the Libertarian maxim that 1) no person or group of persons may aggress against the Property Rights of any other person (including their own body which Libertarianism also regards as a Property Right) and 2) the principle that, as Ron Paul has said, no one has the right to pollute the air you breathe or the water you drink.

Silverwolf thinks that without bringing together the twin outlooks of a Jeffersonian-minarchist, radically free-market, Capitalism, and the environmental safeguards that would protect Individuals and their property, and indeed the whole planet and its animals, against the gross environmental pollution of the earth that has gone on for decades and is now accelerating beyond the Fail-Safe point, — yea, without this critical synthesis, there will be an envionmental chaos that will wipe out the human species. Only a merging of the Libertarian Philosophy of respect for the Individual and the sacredness of his Rights, magnificently codified by Wisechief Jefferson in the Bill of Rights, and the sane responsibility of the Environmental movement, that loves the earth and its animals trees and wants to preserve this miraculous paradise for future humans instead of raping it to benefit those corporations and their stockholders in bed with big government all over the world — only this merger will save both the planet, Capitalism, and Jeffersonian Republicanism.

Murray Rothbard pointed out that when private interests own resources like copper or timber in a truly free-market, they have to ration their annual harvest if they want their business enterprise to be self-sustaining, say for a hundred years, but when government controls huge swathes of resource-rich land and is in bed with major corporations, like the timber industry, and sells those resources to the corporations at below market prices, it encourages those industries they do business with to take as much as they can in as short a time as they can without regard to further sustainability. And so we have gross clearcuts all over the West with so-called Liberal Democrats like Congressman Peter DeFazio (D-OR) calling for even bigger forest rapes or “thinnings”, with the “lumber” going to totalitarian Communist China. The Northwest Forests of America are being decimated by so-called Liberal Democrats like Peter DeFazio, Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, and Governor John Kitzhaber, who have increased the cutting of the Forests in the past years under Democrat Obama, and who stand by and permit the dumping of thousands of pounds of toxic herbicides and pesticides on the forests in populated areas full of children. And think of all the innocent critters, birds and lil rascal varmints whose playgrounds and bliss have been wiped out by the collusion of DeFazio, Merkley, Wyden, Obama and Kitzhaber with the timber industry against the sacred Earth. They are destroying your Earth instead of defending it.

And this decimation of the forests is going on at exactly the same time that they and their fellow Democrats bleat their call for a carbon-tax that will come out of the pockets of the little guy, not the big logging interests.

Now tell me, Congressman DeFazio, if it is so important to institute a carbon-tax because the world is so close to the brink of destruction from global warming, then why is is alright to cut even one single tree if, as we have been told countless times, trees are carbon banks that store excess carbon-dioxide as they grow, only releasing it when they die and decay. The glaring contradiction and hypocrisy of these Forest Rapists is very clear.

Gee, Congressman DeFazio, if our environment is that fragile now that we need to be taxed, then why not call for an immediate logging moratorium on Federal lands, say for 30 years? Why is a tax crucial, but destroying even more carbon banks in the form of trees is not crucial? If global warming is real, that logging moratorium might make the whole difference in the planet and its inhabitants surviving. If global warming is not real, and the earth re-cools, and with 30 years of unmolested growth rebuilding some of the desecrated areas of the Forest, then perhaps commercial logging on private lands could be resumed if there were still any demand by then for wood as a construction material.

These fracking Congressional Democrats, in collusion with their blood brothers, the fracking Republicans, are destroying this miraculous planet and its miraculous life with their eternal bleat of “jobs” while they pick up their $150 grand-a-year for moving their lips and showering, these People’s Representatives who make 3.75 times approximately what the Average Adjusted Gross Income is for all Americans. Some “Evermans”, huh, these Senators and Congressmen and Presidents and Governors. Only Congressman Ron Paul had the integrity to pledge that he would only accept the Average AGI as his Presidential salary, in a wonderful gesture that illustrated the point that the President is not above the People but serves at the Will of the People. No more Emperor Nixons, thank you.

Sadly, the Green parties throughout the world seem to always side with the Left, or Liberal Democrat regimes and administrations, not realizing that Socialism and Central Planning is disastrous for a society and will always lead to poverty, as one sees in so many of Obama’s and Cardinal Geithner’s various financial and medical insurance schemes. In Australia the Greens side with that sadist and racist, Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of a country that stole its land from the Aborigines, and now won’t let in a few Tamils fleeing the horrendous human rights record of Sri Lanka, Muslim asylum seekers from Burma, and others fleeing Iran and Iraq, into a vast land the size of America which could easily absorb a few thousand more refugees. In America, the border cities are stuffed with so-called “illegal immigrants” by the hundreds of thousands and millions, but things don’t fall apart and go along pretty smoothly. Haven’t heard of any armed uprisings in L.A. by a “Mexican Liberation Front Army”, have you?. But fragile Australia can’t house a few thousand extremely brave immigrants, or let them go about on conditional release within the community, and instead keeps them in virtual prison camps offshore, living in horrendous conditions (tents in the rain that leak) as was recently reported on Radio Australia. Prime Minister Julia Gillard is a disgrace to Australia, a disgrace to the Libertarian tradition of British Liberalism which was one of the bright spots of the British Commonwealth, at least in theory, and, finally, a disgrace to the Human Race. Western Liberal Governments should step up and criticise this Harridan most harshly. Shame on Australia for its disgraceful and cruel treatment of these brave Human Beings

But I run before my horse to market.

The Green Parties, unfortunately, in Europe, in Australia, and in America invariably side with the Left. And, unfortunately, the Libertarian Party has failed to distinguish between what we would call “Corporate Libertarianism” which attempts to equate the Rights of Corporations with those of Individuals, and “Individual Libertarianism” which was the original concept of Jefferson and was most recently championed by Professor Murray Rothbard when he founded the modern Libertarian Party. Rothbard’s later severe break with the Koch Brothers perfectly illustrates the clear dichotomy between these two views, Individual Libertarianism vs Corporate Libertarianism. Whereas our Constitution speaks of “Individual Rights”, it makes no mention of Corporations whatsoever. Corporations were a cunning, but necessary, later invention, but in today’s political climate it is absolutely essential to distinguish between the Rights of Corporations and the Rights of Individuals, and it is the Rights of Individuals which must be put on top.

The Democrats and Republicans have reversed this natural order, putting the Corporation above the Individual, and this perversion of Jefferson’s intent in the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights must be re-reversed.

Indeed, we’d put it to you that “Corporate Libertarianism” is not Libertarianism at all, but actually its opposite if you look at how it works in America and abroad. It’s a form of the old Mercantilism of the British Kings who would give the plum monopolies to their friends, relatives, and fawning minions.

So, the point is that Environmentalism must be linked with the Individual Libertarianism that seemed to animate Rothbard, and not with the Corporate Libertarianism which is the main braying call of the mainstream Republicans. Ron Paul represented such an Individual Rothbardian Libertarianism in our view.

Today’s news of a huge fall of one-third in the sperm count and quality in French males  in the past 30 years is a confirmation of the continuing domination of the corporations as they pollute the Earth and its People, and that sperm count fall in France, of course, mainly took place under the enlightened “progressive Left-wing’ French government in Europe, that stronghold of the Greens. We can see how well the Greens are protecting the Environment and the Earth and its People.

The only thing that will save the World now is a radical Environmentalism, that treats environmental polluters the way you’d treat rapists, married to a radically free-market Libertarianism, that takes the defense of the Individual’s Property Rights, including his body, as the only legitimate function of government.

Without this marriage the world is doomed.
