Mandalay Bay

Now a month after the great mass shooting in Las Vegas is a good time to get a feel for what really happened that night. I figured testimonies, evidence and experiences will all be compiled. The wounded will have died or well on their way to recovery. There will be a plethora of heroic and near-miss stories to help the event capture the imagination. No. that is not what I find. Below are four video news reports that SHOULD BE played in every home. I found these with the following search. You can select other videos to watch, including those published by the fable spinners. Use your own head to figure out which is which. You might note I do […]

blah-blah-blah-gun control-blah-blah-blah

In the middle of all the noise from totalitarian government employees and lamestream media is the latest effort at restricting gun ownership. They never lose sight of their goal to have exclusive rights to lethal force. This argument has been won repeatedly by logic and data, but will never go away as long as there are people who lust for power, and never-ending increases in their power. They are hollow-shelled bullies. Bullies understand force. Nothing else. When met with anything remotely approaching equal force, they are cowards. We must never let them catch us napping. Amidst all the gun control yammering are three essays worth reading. I will give you excerpts and links to them. ——————————- Looking at the “gun […]

2006 Idaho governor candidate debate

Seeing Ron Paul championing my main 2006 campaign theme a decade later inspired me to look for this video. I couldn’t find it at the PBS website, so I uploaded a copy I had saved years ago. Debating in front of television cameras live to a state-wide audience was a terrifying to do, but probably the best performance of my political career. My biggest campaign theme was liberal tax credits for scholarships to private schools equal to a maximum of half what taxpayers spend on government schools. We would save money while liberating education. It was a good idea then. It still is.

L. Neil Smith penned an often quoted and referenced article “Why Did it Have to be … Guns?”. If you are unfamiliar, click the link to check it out. In essence, if a politician does not trust you with guns, you should not trust that person with any power or authority. I have a similar litmus test regarding political philosophy. If someone thinks, or is trying to convince us our Constitution created a democracy here, they are ignorant or evil. Nothing they say, write or do after that has any interest to me. In a democracy, the majority of those voting take anything from, do anything to the minority with popularity of the action justifying their abuse. The little takers […]

showtime vs realtime

Mainstream media and ghosts of presidencies past are scurrying into dark corners hoping the “Uranium One” scandal will blow over. Many of us are rooting for it to blow up on the Teflon Couple and their slimy co-conspirators. They fear Trump for good reason. He has not run cover for them the way all recent presidents did for their crime family. BUT he did bow down to what I guess was some powerful threats and fill top level administration positions with the same banksters and military-industrial-complex leaders on the same team as Bush-Clinton-Obama. It is an interesting show. I won’t be surprised if the storm blows over with the criminals unscathed, but I cannot help hope for a modicum of […]

Why Did it Have to be … Guns?

by L. Neil Smith Over the past 30 years, I’ve been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I’ve thought about the issue a lot, and it has always determined the way I vote. People accuse me of being a single-issue writer, a single- issue thinker, and a single- issue voter, but it isn’t true. What I’ve chosen, in a world where there’s never enough time and energy, is to focus on the one political issue which most clearly and unmistakably demonstrates what any politician—or political philosophy—is made of, right down to the creamy liquid center. Make no mistake: all politicians—even those […]

Of Course The Country Is Divided

from The Ron Paul Liberty Report Government is very slick with its marketing: – United “We” Stand – “It’s Not Who We Are” As A Country – “We The People” – Russia Wants “To Divide Us” … and on and on. Government likes to portray the country as a unified entity. It’s pure fantasy and false advertising at its finest. Let’s say you’re person who believes in “live and let live.” You’d never use force against your neighbor, and you’d never send government to use force against your neighbor for your benefit. You want to be left alone, and you show the same courtesy to others. That doesn’t mean you don’t need others. You’ll gladly trade and exchange with […]

cause of The Civil War

Lamestream media informed people are attacking, or supporting the attacks on Confederate history. I am saddened by their historical ignorance, but not surprised. The federal takeover of government indoctrination, sometimes called “public schools” had this among its chief objectives. I just ran across a wonderful summary of the “Civil War” causes. Certainly the books When In The Course Of Human Events, The Real Lincoln, Lincoln Unmasked and others of their kind are better than this synopsis, but the facts are consistent. The modern, popular mythology does not hold water. I quote from the article: Shortly after Lincoln’s call to put down the “rebellion;” a prominent Northern politician wrote to Colonel Baldwin to enquire what Union men in Virginia would do […]
