History will be kind to me for I intend to write it. – Winston Churchill Dubya-Dubya-Too is often considered the last good war. Some of us have to look almost a century prior to find a contender for that honor. Nevertheless, Winston is highly respected by history for his “leadership during that time of crisis.”…

The Ferguson Conundrum Solved By Community Security   This article comes from personalliberty.com by Brandon Smith Many times in the past I have discussed the concept of what I call the “non-participation principle,” but often people misinterpret what “non-participation” really entails. Such a strategy does not mean an individual activist or group simply refuses to…

the WHY shows up

Yesterday I assembled information and links to a number of glaring oddities surrounding the Ferguson protests, riots, arsons and responses. Clearly USofA federal agents are doing some of the damage and a lot of the stirring up (see Ferguson, protests, looting, violence). I could figure some of their motivations, but felt I was missing something.…

I ended yesterday’s “blizzards of bodies and snow” pondering the Why of Emperor O’s unconstitutional action writing law by executive fiat to adopt millions of previously illegal immigrants. Today I have a solid piece of the answer. The answer, or at least this well-defined part of it is 48 years old. I attach the full…

With the excitement regarding Emporer O’s latest play in Las Vegas, it is easy to lose sight of the importance of this action. The online social media community is all atwitter over various obvious negative impacts of this stroke-of-the-pen amnesty for illegal aliens. I agree completely, but that is only a piece of it; the…

busting the spoiler myth

I disagree with descriptions of Libertarian election campaigns as “spoilers”. This assumes all votes Libertarian candidates attracted were taken from the potential Republican or Democrat tallies. Supposedly, they stole fiscally conservative votes from Republicans or culturally tolerant votes from Democrats. A rather obvious problem with this theory is that elected Republicans have shown no signs…

That they were caught using the Infernal Revenuer Stasi as a weapon is certainly not new. When Bill and Hillary Clinton got caught at it they first moved it off the headlines by bombing Kosovo.
