The Christian Case For Libertarianism
Post Date: 2018-07-09 09:21:11 by Deckard
The evils of government threaten all people, but ought to be particularly concerning to Christians.Ronald Reagan once said, I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. With the Christian Right now taking up the banner of religious liberty in the face of an onslaught by the secular Left, evangelical conservatives should heed Reagans words and consider libertarianism as a palatable governing philosophy to advance their interests. In his book, Anarchism: A History of Libertarian Ideas and Movements (2004), George Woodcock defines libertarianism as: A political philosophy that upholds liberty as its principal objective. Libertarians ...
If Trump were Hitler, this is what would happen
Post Date: 2018-07-08 11:07:41 by Deckard
Liberals, progressives, Democrats, and those who follow and support them are fond of calling President Donald Trump a fascist. Most have no idea what this means. They have a vague grasp on history and politics. According to the official version of world history, no villain was worse than Adolf Hitler. Not even Stalin and Mao, who killed far more than the Nazis. Trump is not a Nazi. Hes not even a fascist. If anything, hes a crony capitalist. His business deals demonstrate this. He received tax breaks, grants and incentives to expand his real estate empire. Trump went so far as to sue New York Mayors Edward I. Koch, Rudy Giuliani, and Michael R. Bloomberg after they ...
July 4 Is Matrix Reinforcement Day
Post Date: 2018-07-05 09:28:10 by Deckard
Paul Craig Roberts July 4, 2018, is the 242 anniversary of the date chosen to stand as the date the 13 British colonies declared independence. According to historians, the actual date independence was declared was July 2, 1776, with the vote of the Second Continental Congress. Other historians have concluded that the Declaration of Independence was not actually signed until August 2. For many living in the colonies the event was not the glorious one that is presented in history books. There was much opposition to the separation, and the loyalists were killed, confiscated, and forced to flee to Canada. Some historians explain the event not as a great and noble enterprise of ...
The Fourth of July Has Nothing to Do with the Military
Post Date: 2018-07-04 09:57:49 by Deckard
The Fourth of July is supposed to be celebrated as Independence Daythe day when the thirteen American colonies officially dissolved the political bands that connected them with Great Britain. As the Declaration of Independence concludes: We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all ...
It Is Imperative That The Next Supreme Court Nominee Is Questioned On Vital National Security Matters
Post Date: 2018-06-30 18:12:21 by Deckard
Michael J. Glennons book on the dual nature of the American government, National Security and Double Government, is one of the most disturbing and disconcerting I have ever read. He posits that there is the Madisonian public government of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches found outlined in the Constitution, operating under the rule of law, with separation of powers, checks and balances, and openness and transparency. This is contrasted with the Trumanite clandestine deep state, established by the National Security Act of 1947 during the Truman regime. On every page he uncovers virtually unknown material in intricate detail ...
When Running From the Devil You Better Be Faster than Hell

by Doug Uncola Lynn: In these sentiments, sir, I agree to this Constitution, with all its faults, if they are such; because I think a General Government necessary for us, and there is no form of government, but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered; and believe further, that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other. Benjamin Franklin Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any ...
Monty Python in the Politically Correct Crosshairs
Post Date: 2018-06-29 14:25:19 by Deckard
Across the realm of popular culture, humor is being stripped of its, well, humor. Then the PC police came for Monty Python, the famed British comedy troupe. On June 19, the Daily Mail headlined a story: No Joke: Head of BBC comedy says Oxbridge white blokes of Python wouldnt get on TV now. The article detailed the politically correct comments of Shane Allen, the BBCs Controller of Comedy Commissioning (that title seems like a funny gag in itself), who declared that the comedic needs of today require a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world. One of the old Pythoners, John Cleese, was quick to rise in defense of his mates on Twitter: ...
Schools Have Created a Generation of Permit Pattys and BBQ Beckys
Post Date: 2018-06-28 12:57:26 by Deckard
These people are indicative of the infantilization of the American adult. It seems like every week theres a new Permit Patty (a grown woman who called the police on an eight-year-old selling water without a permit), BBQ Becky (another grown woman who called the police on a man BBQing without a permit), or someone who calls the police on a lemonade stand. Beyond being an irritant and filling society with busybodies of the worst typewho calls the police on kids?these people are indicative of something deeper. These people are indicative of the infantilization of the American adult. Schools, Tattletales, and the Permission-Based Mindset One of the defining ...
Where Do You Draw the Line in Today’s Crazed Political Environment?
Post Date: 2018-06-27 07:34:38 by Deckard
If you vote for Trump, then you the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border like Nazis going you here, you here. Donny Deutsch on MSNBC last week Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you. Friedrich Nietzsche With each passing day, Trumps hardcore supporters and detractors become more deeply entrenched in their respective corners and grow more hysterical. With every turn of the news cycle, we see two groups increasingly and equally convinced that only they and their allies can save the nation from total ruin. As ...
The Libertarian Case FOR Serving Sarah Huckabee Sanders (and Other People You Disagree With)
Post Date: 2018-06-26 05:43:59 by Deckard
Her money is green, and you can talk to her while she's chowing down. My colleague Robby Soave has already published a libertarian defense of refusing to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Over the weekend, Sanders and her party were bounced from the Red Hen, a restaurant in Virginia. The restaurant's owner said "this feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals." Well, sure, knock yourself out. The doctrinaire libertarian defense of the owner is pretty straightforward: A business owner should have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason, good, bad, and ...
Red Hen's LGBT employees should have made sure Sarah Huckabee Sanders got served
Post Date: 2018-06-25 11:36:43 by Deckard
The LGBT community understands bias and has pleaded for tolerance. How could the Red Hen's LGBT employees lobby to eject Sarah Huckabee Sanders?When Sarah Huckabee Sanders walked into the Red Hen restaurant in western Virginia, it is a safe bet she just wanted to enjoy a meal. She was in Americas heartland and wanted what everyone else did that evening at the Red Hen a farm-to-table dinner. What Sanders received, however, is a stark reminder that half a century later, America is still asking who has a seat at the lunch counter, and the dinner table.I would have done the same thing again, co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson told The Washington ...

Freedom’s Essential Hierarchy
Post Date: 2018-06-24 18:12:38 by tpaine
Townhall.com Freedoms Essential Hierarchy Paul Jacob 6/24/2018 12:01:00 AM - Have Americans forgotten that freedom makes getting along easier? We do not all have to like each other. We do not even all have to be nice to each other. We just dont have license to hit or hornswoggle our fellows. Hate speech may be bad, but it is hate assaults not talk that should be punished by law. This distinction, between talk and act, is important. One way to look at it is to accept it as a hierarchy. And when it comes to hierarchy, you cannot get more deep into it than in thinking theologically. Which is why freedom of conscience was so key to the development ...
Henry Kissinger’s Kind Words About President Trump: Tactical Strategy Or Hope?
Post Date: 2018-06-24 10:58:20 by Deckard
Op-Ed by Catherine J. Frompovich Former U.S. Secretary of State, and apparent New World Order guru of the first order, since God only knows when, Henry Alfred Kissinger , has made several on the record statements about President Donald J. Trump some folks, if not most, would not expectnor agree with. Why? Probably because of the unfair and one-sided mainstream media hype and coverage to take down Mr. Trump from actively being U.S. president, an agenda that started during the 2016 presidential campaign season, but perfected in intensively due to the Hillary Clinton criminal activity regarding personal email servers she maintained as U.S. Secretary of State ...
The Best Places To Live In All 50 U.S. States
Post Date: 2018-06-22 19:45:45 by Deckard
We live at a time when Americans are packing up and moving with increasing frequency. Some are moving for new opportunities, some are moving in anticipation of what is coming, and others are moving just because they are bored. As the publisher of The Economic Collapse Blog and The Most Important News, I am frequently asked to give my opinion about a potential move. Of course I often dont know what to say, because often factors that I dont fully understand are involved in the decision. For example, someone may be moving somewhere truly horrible for a wonderful new job, or complex family relationships are precipitating a move. But there are some general principles ...
What Kind of Country Are We?

Thats what Time magazine tweeted this morning. It is trying to place the blame for Trumps immigration policyspecifically, his separation policyon all Americans.

Will Our Lack of Humanity Be the END of Humanity?
Post Date: 2018-06-22 19:18:52 by Deckard
The Organic Prepper Sometimes I fear for humanity. Not because I think an asteroid is going to wipe us all out or that Skynet is actually coming to fruition (it is!) or that aliens are going to take over the planet or that a pandemic will kill 99% of us. But because of the utter lack of ethics, humanity, and compassion that I see every single day. Maybe the end of humanity is just that we will regress to some animal mentality without that part of the brain that causes us to care for others and will exist only to satiate our need for food, water, and reproduction. And if that sounds extreme, you havent been spending much time on the internet lately. It seems that I ...

Barack Obama: Liar And Nation Wrecker
Post Date: 2018-06-20 10:20:13 by IbJensen
Many believe that the past occupant of the oval office is either a Kenyan, a Marxist, a Muslim, a hater of America and its people and insitutions. All these descriptions are correct, in fact there are many more descriptive words that could be hung around the scrawny neck of this mistake. Our nation was in the same condition as a car, racing at 100 miles towards a cliff with an 800 foot drop and then falling and becoming a busted up wreck burning brightly. How did we get this thingy and, more importantly, who is was this Obama creature, where did he come from and how fortunate we were to get rid of him? How fortunate America waS to dodge the Hillary bullet! Barack did indeed have humble ...
Islamic Takeover Of America!
Post Date: 2018-06-20 10:16:17 by IbJensen
How would you feel if you drove into a town here in the United States and found that many of the street signs were in Arabic only with no English wording? Then you look around and discover that many of the signs on businesses were also in Arabic. Not possible you say? Think again! Welcome to Dearborn, Michigan. Steve Tarani, author and speaker recounts what he saw when he rode with a member of the Detroit Metro SWAT Police as they drove around Detroit and into Dearborn: "The street signs suddenly went from English to Arabic. There wasn't a single English word on any shop or any street sign. And in fact, these little yellow signs were posted all along the edges. Jeremy said to me, ...
America the beautiful

America the beautiful, or so you used to be. Land of the Pilgrim's pride; I'm glad they'll never see. Babies piled in dumpsters, Abortion on demand, Oh, sweet land of liberty; your house is on the sand. Our children wander aimlessly poisoned by cocaine choosing to indulge their lusts, when God has said abstain From sea to shining sea, our Nation turns away From the teaching of God's love and a need to always pray We've kept God in our temples, how callous we have grown. When earth is but His footstool, and Heaven is His throne. We've voted in a government that's rotting at the core, Appointing Godless Judges; who throw reason out the door, Too soft to place ...
"I'm 81 and I'm Tired"
Post Date: 2018-06-20 10:11:22 by IbJensen
"I'm 81 and I'm Tired" I'm 81. I've worked hard supporting myself since I was 15 and later put myself through college and graduate school with my earnings. My wife and I raised a family without any help excepting that of a monthly paycheck provided by my employer. Despite some health challenges, I put in 50-60 hour weeks, and rarely called in sick in all those years. I made a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given today's government-created economy the money we saved for retirement is being quickly eroded due to the decisions made by that gaggle that comprises the central socialist government. ...

Theft is defined as the taking of another persons property or services without that persons permission or consent. Almost invariably, governments pass tax laws and set tax rates without any consultation with the citizenry. Further, no final approval is sought by the citizenry that they consent to the tax or the rates. It is simply imposed. Most of us tend not to regard taxation as theft, yet, by definition, thats exactly what it is. But some countries, notably the US, go further in disguising the theft, by stating that the payment of tax is voluntary. I personally am not aware of a single instance in which an individual or corporation decided not to ...
More Revolutionaries Are Coming
Post Date: 2018-06-18 09:48:37 by Deckard
"The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers." Princess Leia, Star Wars Assange, Ulbricht, Manning, Snowden
weve seen a slow stream of revolutionaries over the past decade or so, a few of whom became well-known. More will be coming. The reason Im sure of this is that the two forces driving it are increasing: On one hand, humanity is becoming better. Youll never believe that if you watch the news, but out here in the real world humans are slowly improving. Im tempted to say that Id like the progress to be a bit more rapid, but the truth is that recent progress has sometimes been ...
We Are All Bigots
Post Date: 2018-06-17 10:51:49 by Deckard
When I was a kid racism/sexism meant one of two things; visceral hatred of a certain group, or a belief in the inferiority/superiority of certain group(s). Im only 34, I grew up in a well populated region of California, and my parents were politically mixed
so I dont feel like my childhood sentiments were far outside of norm. If someone were to say they have racial/sexual bias in various forms, we wouldnt label that sexism or racism. By this standard, most people felt very comfortable denouncing racism/sexism. In the late 90s I started seeing people intentionally blur the lines of bias and bigotry. Victim peddlers largely won their somewhat noble victory, but had ...
