John Edwards and other freakish news of the day; Utah breakthrough!

John Edwards is a two-headed monster who crawled from South to North Carolina and made a glorious, filthy rich career for himself as ambulance-chasing legal trickster, in the process totally disgracing himself personally in the process. As one logs into Charter, his name is one of the first that comes up at the moment in this ISP's "news" feed:
Gov't re-interviews Edwards witness
By NEDRA PICKLER Associated Press

If he's indicted for any kind of chicanery, it couldn't happen to a nicer, er, more appropriate guy.

.........Wild news is underfoot and flying high in the sky these days. As I write, Stan Deyo is a guest on Coast to Coast AM and making a good case that these are indeed the end-times foretold in Scripture. Two callers have just reported that there's a roaring noise coming out of the ocean off Florida, and Mr. Devo replies that such was heard before the catastrophe in Japan started.

..........A compatriot sent this stunning new video of the tsunami waters overrunning a populated area in that tragically beset country. You wonder which buildings are going to survive the flood, and the next thing you know, the water is slamming one building against another! Vehicles are as mere dust particles to the torrent:

..........Man, as I write, AM radio news reports that courts have cleared the way for the three Duke University athletes lynched by the media to sue two officials who led in their legal crucifixion. THAT IS GOOD NEWS.

...........A reader sends this resource for helping to expose chemtrails among skeptics you know:

.................Every time a state, country or podunk town does something right, it shames the ameriKan fedgov. Singapore is very good at it, because it's a city-state run by sane, intelligent, responsible people as contrasted to the demons, knotheads and prima donnas runnig everything here. The latest:

Singapore: Cutting taxes… again.

Finally, in celebration of the wonderful breakthrough logged here yesterday, here's how I had planned to write it up before my ongoing multi-computer crisis put the kibosh on it the day before:

This is not merely one day's or one week's dose of good news amid all the bad -- this could quite possibly be the beginning of the end for the Fed, IRS and funny money. Because the herd instinct operates at all levels of society, everybody's waiting for everybody else to take the first move (and then, perhaps deal with the fedgov's rage, taking the rap for everybody else in advance) but once one state does it, a domino effect is surely likely.


Utah has now become the first State on our list to actually enact a sound money bill into law.

On Friday, March 25th, Gov. Gary Herbert signed HB 317, the "Utah Legal Tender Act," into law.

Well, I thought I'd reported it yesterday, but don't see it. It's all a blur. I'm seriously thinking of going back to typrewriters.

Pentagon’s $600,000 Gurgling Toad Sculpture

Category: Nutty News

frogNutty News Alexandria, Virginia - A $600,000 frog sculpture that lights up, gurgles “sounds of nature” and carries a 10-foot fairy girl on its back could soon be greeting Defense Department employees who plan to start working at the $700 million Mark Center in Alexandria, Va. this fall. Only 2,500 will see the artwork every day as they use the bus transfer station at the Mark Center. According to the Corps, the artwork was the city’s idea. A city official, however, said that Alexandria officials didn’t demand art, but just asked that public artwork be included in the structure. What’s more, the official said that the $600,000 is federal money, and that no Alexandria funds will pay for the art. More…

"States with no income tax see growth in 2010"

This is beautiful (thanks, K) -- further vindication of the anti-"income tax" position!
The taxing of wages is not simply a bad idea. It's not a mere good intention poorly applied. It's not an option in any economy that wants to live out a normal healthy life span. It's a poison pill from hell -- a perfect formula for destroying an economy while simultaneously impoverishing workers and sucking their brains out! Above all, it's un-Constitutional. That should settle it for all 308 million people stuffed into the USA, but eggheads and utopians always insist the emperor is wearing, clothes, and they're way to good at getting everybody else to say so.
Dr. Clarkson always said that the more a country (or state, etc.) taxes wages, the more it depends on debt -- that's already cannibalism, isn't it? I think this article is saying the same thing from another angle.
South Carolinians must rejoice at this article for another reason -- it also shows the greatness of the right to work without being compelled to join labor unions, and SC is a right to work state.
I put "income tax" in quotes above, because, after all..... wages are not income.

States with no income tax see growth in 2010

Many of us are keenly interested in preserving our right to travel, which increasingly overlaps with the right to privacy. Here's a wild headline in which often troublesome corporate giant Google is finally cause for some real excitement:

Google Says It Won’t Pull DUI Checkpoint Evasion App

This just in by email -- priceless, just priceless!

The sad part is how true this is.

Gubmint and How Gubmint Works

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, "Someone may steal from it at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions and one person to do time studies.

Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people, one to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they created two positions, a time keeper and a payroll officer, then hired two people.

Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?"

So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, an Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

Then Congress said, "We have had this command in operation for one year, and we are $918,000 over budget. We must cut back." So they laid off the night watchman.

NOW slowly, let that sink in.

Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter.

Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY..... during the Carter Administration?




Didn't think so!

Bottom line: We've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency...the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember!

Ready?? It was very simple . . . and, at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.

The Department of Energy was instituted on 8/04/1977 TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.

Hey, pretty efficient, huh???


A little over 33 years ago, 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.

Ah, yes -- the good old Federal bureaucracy!!


Hello!! Anybody Home?

Remember the "energy crisis" of the Carter years? Every gas station had a red, yellow or green flag out front to show which class of drivers were allowed to tank up there. Think it was revived a few years ago, complete with killings in view of pumps? Guess you'd call that part "gas line rage," and some would call it a fit subject for studies and subsidies in some direction.

Phony baloney -- that's all the gas crisis has been all this time. oceans of crude languish under the lower 48 while Washington fakes one oil war after another in the Mideast. Millions of road vehicles outside of the krazy mixed-up USA are happily running around on compressed natural gas, and wouldn't it be good to know how many million gallons of used cooking oil are simply being trashed every day by restaurants?

Never mind all that -- Tesla showed us the way to free energy, but Mr. Westinghouse asked "Where would one put the meter?" and the System made sure it came to nought.

AmeriKa is a Land Of Confusion now, in which problems are gaping wounds that never close -- while solutions are growing on every green tree and being widely enjoyed by people in still-functioning countries. Huge industries (e.g. federal bureaucracies) feed off of trouble and chaos, and have a vested interest in keeping peace and order at bay. It does not have to be this way!

RW Moore plus the day's info catches

A small but nice group of about 30 folks made RW Moore's funeral today (see yesterday's post). It was a poignant occasion from the first. I greeted some of the family -- in particular RW's wife Irene -- and learned among other things from them that RW was "Jim" to them! While in the navy, it seems RW had been promoter and announcer for a band on a ship under the stage name "Jimmy
One gentleman standing nearby was a family friend who had been a publisher of RW's materials many years ago plus two local weekly newspapers. He was quite interesting and knew of the Edgefield Advertiser, SC's oldest newspaper which used to carry my column. The service was brief and after the burial six of us PN members who attended went to our former PN monthly meeting place in Toccoa, Quincy's on Route 17 for food and fellowship. We talked a great deal of conspiracy science.
I tried something on them I had at the PN staff dinner on Saturday -- casually polling people about what their favorite pre-1970 movie was. It's always surprising!
Correction -- there were seven and a half of us at the restaurant including young Samuel Leitgeb, his parents and his anticipated little sister.
I tried driving home to Anderson along Route 123 and then Clemson Boulevard. This sentimentally evoked the times RBC and I would return from a PN meeting or, in particular, a speaking tour by that route.

Day's roundup -- pell mell, during multi-computer breakdowns

Praise report: This blogger is blessed with multiple top-notch computer gurus. A month ago my main computer got corrupted -- somehow -- so I've been using a great laptop I'd bought some years back but left on the shelf. In the midst of a not-too-bad little storm tonight it suddenly failed with a loud pop and doesn't respond to anything now. But my new local Anderson area computer man was just here yesterday, Friday, and while he couldn't get the main eMachine working, he managed to speed up a Dell computer I'd bought for our Greenville underground railroad station a few years back, which had for some reason gotten slow as molasses since I'd taken it out of mothballs. Another computer tower I'd planned to donate to some worthy party malfunctioned yesterday for the first time, and we simply didn't have time to attend to it... partly because every attempt to revive the eMachine had failed with what limited resources "the doctor" had on him this trip.
The bottom line is that I'm still computing (on the Dell, of course) -- even a lightning bolt aimed straight at my computer life can't stop me from logging each day's most politically incorrect news here. (it was a very selective bolt -- possibly via the internet cable, since everything's powered via a relay of two surge protectors.)
Speaking of computers..... The PN staff had a delightful staff dinner party and teach-in at headquarters today. Present were PN leaders and our computer doctor, who turned out to be a former seminary student and my fellow Bob Jones grad. Food and drink were courtesy of the executive director -- as you know, we do things a little differently than your average mega-corporation, and more power to us!
A Staff Member Of The Year certificate was issued to one of our key players. The gathering left this blogger thinking that "inner circle" patriot brains should -- yes, on top of their already busy schedules -- be regularly meeting to confer on strategies for legal self-preservation.
..........The day's gleanings, in no particular order:
I got an email linking to this new indie movie trailer.

Unbridled Justice: The Legend of Manse Jolly PROMO

"His vow to avenge his brother's death cost the lives of many Union soldiers".....

This is great news! Manse Jolly was one of the most daring, dashing heroes of the un-Civil War -- as the clip implies, a great crusader against the vile and violent oppression of his people by the amoral yankee invaders. I believe he kept fighting -- as needed -- after the War. The main point about him is that he was passionate enough about justice and loyalty that he kept "the skeer" on the enemy as few other individuals did!
He's also one of the most notable figures ever born in the PN's home city of Anderson, S.C. He's known of locally even as everything that really matters gets steamrolled by decadent mass anti-culture today. If you were to take I-85 Exit 21 into Anderson, you'd first come to Justice Lane on the left and then Manse Jolly Road off which I go swimming all summer.
Perhaps some of you noticed a large, definitive, hardcover biography of this hero around Dr. Clarkson's house through the years? I seem to recall it lurking just inside the basement entrance. This is because RBC, too, cared for justice, family and tribe, and know quality when he saw it in history.
..........How about this mordant quote from the ever-verdant

Would Sarkozy Have Supported the Confederacy?

“Peaceful Southern citizens who are only asking to choose their own destiny are in danger of dying,” French president Sarkozy said. Oh, sorry, he actually said “Libyan citizens.”

The sad news of the day is that one of our favorite modern Confederate soldiers, R.W. Moore of Toccoa, Georgia, died Saturday. RW was the founder and publisher of the Truth Newspaper and a passionate activist, publicist, and entrepreneur -- not to mention the host of our Toccoa Patriot Network Club at his headquarters in rural Stephens County. We fought the Georgia Confederate Flag fight with him when many other Georgians tried to shoo us away, saying "we have it in the bag!" I'll write a fuller obituary in the Nationalist Times newspaper's discussion forum soon.

............Now some juicy headlines from One should prompt many to really, seriously ask if the government needs the tax revenues it extracts with such blood and guts from working people; others should give folk pause to contemplate whether any "public servant" actually deserves even the time of day from the citizenry!

General Electric Profits of $14.2 Billion and No Taxes - $5.1 billion of this came from USA operations as well. GE is expert at lobbying for tax breaks. Over the last decade, G.E. has spent tens of millions of dollars to push for changes in tax law, from more generous depreciation schedules on jet engines to “green energy” credits for its wind turbines. But the most lucrative of these measures allows G.E. to operate a vast leasing and lending business abroad with profits that face little foreign taxes and no American taxes as long as the money remains overseas. While the financial crisis led G.E. to post a loss in the United States in 2009, regulatory filings show that in the last five years, G.E. has accumulated $26 billion in American profits, and received a net tax benefit from the I.R.S. of $4.1 billion. No taxes.

Former Dallas FBI Veteran Get Two Years – He tried to acquire weapons to kill his former boss. He was making $140,000 a year an an FBI agent about one year ago.

Connecticut State Trooper Threatens To Arrest a Judge – The beef was over the judge failing to sign an arrest warrant.

Pennsylvania State Trooper Arrested for Drugs and Stealing Money – The guy stole money from traffic stop victims and had drug paraphernalia on him. I guess the USA has already become a third world country must just have not realized it.

.........While people are rightly concerned as to how we're going to keep powering this bodaciously "advanced" society, here are a few really good musings on how things used to be -- perhaps you received them too, titled "This is an interesting perspective on today’s “New” concern for the environment...."

Center for American Progress: “We’re Not Broke!”

You may already know of one way cities, counties, states, and USA Inc. have fooled the masses re their money woes – the huge black budget each has under the rubric of CAFR or “Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.” Yes – the whole time your and my politicians are crying about the treasury being empty and in critical need of stuffing full again, they know about the massive slush fund that could be drawn on anytime but for reasons of the Federal Reserve conspiracy are not even mentioned to the public.

Another way to get everything solvent in a hurry is to abandon socialism including the hidden tax of inflation and the stinking inferno known as the IRS. But the politicians would rather die than go there. Meanwhile, some scholars at the abovementioned Washington think tank have another exciting, common-sense option to offer:

We Could Pay All Our Bills Without Borrowing a Cent

By Michael Linden, Michael Ettlinger

...........In "my" main discussion forum there's a whole thread on the sickening political pervert they call George Soros. If you've never homed in on his case he's probably just another ugly face in the crowd of the most filthy-rich world wreckers to you, but he seems to be one of the ultra-topmost in terms of power, loot and evil global influence.

There's only one problem with the link at hand here: in order to direct you to it, I'm going to have to make a confession. One of my specialties is chronicling the way a certain ethnic/religious tribe abuses its vastly disproportionate power in the world. I feel I do it quite objectively even though it's the furthest thing from social propriety. And this extra-controversial subject impinges on the page in question. If you want to go there, please promise first that if you find it offensive you'll point out specifically and factually where I'm wrong about it, with no mud-slinging or name-calling.

Deal? Ok.... if you want to read that page, simply google ""Topic: György Schwartz alias Deity George Soros". But only if you want the whole truth on a major topic!

For those that would rather not, a hot item as it was emailed to me:

The event is bringing together "more than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders' to repeat the famed 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped create the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Soros wants a new 'multilateral system," or an economic system where America isn't so dominant.

Harvard law prof sees it: destruction (or at least disappearance) of the middle class

..............BrasscheckTV, one of the few things to which I have a daily email subscription, just featured something highly unusual in its quest to unearth al the suppressed, politically incorrect truth it can. You may know that the world is full of eggheads -- professors, bean counters, intellectuals commentators, etc. who are highly degreed and respected but generally don't have any connection to the real world. Indeed, they have a great deal to do with keeping the System going, justifying and prettifying its every whim and atrocity.
You may also know that these happy, blessed, high-salaried, much-consulted angels of light are also sometimes charming and beautiful as they go about their fashionably deadly business, waltzing from positions in media or acedeme into government posts and vice versa with stunning fluidity. WellwellwellWELL, Brasscheck found one that has one real-world sonata in her repertoire: warning about the ongoing obliteration of the middle class. Said obliteration is, you'll recall, one of the ways the goals of communism are often summed up.
This pretty, vivacious lady is law professor Elizabeth Warren. Pretendent Obama appointed her to oversee implementation of TARP or "Troubled Asset Relief Program". She will now crunch numbers in ways Fed swami Bernanke and his cronies wouldn't like:
The coming collapse of the American middle class

She deals with the tax curse somewhere and how it amplifies the effect of all other drains on families' finances today -- I thought this was in minute 25, but don't seem to find it there now.
In minute 56 she tosses off a remark that would make a perfect epitaph for the American economy: she notes that a few decades ago, many young people routinely lowrated their parents as "hopelessly middle class". Now they've gotten their wish in a vein of O. Henry-like irony: the middle class now includes them, but it's obligingly being ground down to nothing by the satanic techniques of the money masters, e.g. inflation and Comrade Marx's explicit dream, a "heavily graduated income tax".
I doubt any of her illustrious audience lost any sleep in response to her presentation or went running to their congresscritters to beg them to get rid of socialism. Thank God she phrased everything so sweetly and bouncily without pointing out the causes of anything she decried. Why, that would be considered socially improper, maybe even rude!

................New continues to surge forth re the catastrophe in Japan. Some say the situation is manageable, some disagree. Some say we Americans are in no danger, others say we're already drinking the radioactive kool-aid and are utterly doomed. NO doubt we should all be taking iodine tablets and preparing to sped a week or 10 days in a house thoroughly insulated with plastic sheeting and duct tape. Some less purely grim advice has surfaced as well:

Red wine can protect against radiation

Nutty News University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine - According to the latest research, red wine - along with its many other claimed benefits - may also protect you from radiation exposure. A team at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have discovered that resveratrol, the natural anti-oxidant found in red wine, can protect cells from the damage caused by radiation. In experiments on mice the scientists found that when combined with the chemical acetyl and administered before radiation exposure it protected the cells and helped prevent death. The results, to be presented to the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, could lead to drugs to counteract poisoning in the wake of a nuclear emergency or attack. More…

More immediately gagging in the atmosphere is the war fever that has not merely returned but simply continues to multiply itself. Don't ask what we're doing in Libya -- nobody's sufficiently explained why we entered World War I! But thank God, Enough freedom of speech remains that commentators are rightly and roundly denouncing it.
To me it has been obvious since 9/11 that the US federal government is the real terror force and the president (whoever it may be t a given time) the real Darth Vader. They attempt to terrify us into allowing them to terrorize non-Jewish Mideasterners. The richly embody the original, lately-forgotten meaning of "terrorism", i.e. making a violent example of a few in order to scare the many into compliance.
Surely you've noticed? Refuse to be X-rayed or groped by TSA flunkeys, and you will be detained for questioning. Take a stand for monetary sanity like Bernard von NotHaus and go to prison for 15 years. Refuse as a soldier to go to war for a fraudster president, and look forward to torture and humiliation in the gulag. They know how to manage crowds, i.e. that there's nothing like opening fire on the upstarts to get their attention.

Loath as I am to inject anything off-color or obscene -- and hard as I've tried to put a stop to it elsewhere -- I feel moved to share with you one such site for the simple reason that it embodies what may be the absolute highest concentration of unvarnished, starkly truthful commentary. You who can stomach gratuitous vulgarity by the ton may find it one of the funniest sites anywhere even though it deals in the most colossal and monstrous moral outrages of our time, making frequent reference to the same in past ages -- especially where war fever is concerned. For those not already familiar with Fred Reed's site Fred On Everything, here you go.

CONTEXT is what's missing from most forensics today, and context is what Fred has to offer by the ton, which he does with a total vacuum of respect for pretense and flummery! There are those whose wit makes you laugh and there are those that knock your funny bone simply by stating the obvious about the emperor's new clothes in ways even your favorite existing pundits don't. Let me know how you like him.
This from one of my main expat gurus:

Simon Black,

Barack Obama himself said in 2002, "What I am opposed to is the attempt by political hacks... to distract us from a rise in the uninsured, a rise in the poverty rate, a drop in the median income?--?to distract us from corporate scandals and a stock market that has just gone through the worst month since the Great Depression. That's what I'm opposed to. A dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on reason but on passion, not on principle but on politics."

Sounds great. Spoken like a true Nobel Laureate.

The intellectual dishonesty and hypocrisy involved is phenomenal. The UN Security Council resolution (#1973) which 'authorized' this invasion, expresses condemnation for Qadaffi's deleterious actions against his own people...
... never mind that the exact same thing is happening in Bahrain (which produces only 10% of Libya's oil) where the US Navy's 5th Fleet is headquartered with front row seats to the show;
... never mind that governments have hardly uttered a word about the situation in Bahrain or Saudi Arabia;
... never mind that the western world has proven itself incompetent at regime change after the occupations of both Iraq and Afghanistan;
... never mind that 10-years of warfare have worn out the spirit and morale of fighting forces to the point that they are twisted into taking trophy photos of dead civilians like a 16-point buck;
... never mind that you can't just step in, bomb some targets, step out, and expect a peaceful, stable, democratic, pro-Western society to materialize out of thin air;
... nevermind that the coalition forces lack the moral authority to cherry pick which countries to invade and which civilian populations to ignore.

When they lack moral authority, they simply create it out of thin air. Politicians and bureaucrats equate morality with legality. If something is legal, it must be just... and if it's not legal, they'll pass a law or resolution making it legal... and hence just.
This is the way they operate-- using regulatory technicalities to wrap themselves in a blanket of righteousness in order to execute their agenda. As Tacitus said, "the more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws."

South Carolina news to excite anyone from any state

After much turmoil and strife among South Carolina political types, it appears SC is going to soon see an official end to voice voting on legislation. This has been a surprisingly hot issue with some of our best legislators coming out against requiring that all their individual votes be on the record. The problem seems to be the fact that you sometimes have to vote for a bad bill to get a good measure in place, and if anybody can access your voting record people easily mistake your strategy. Some known good SC legislators have opposed the idea!

My gut instinct and yours, of course, is to have total transparency in the legislative process. Let's hope we get it and that many more conservatives get involved in lobbying in order to make this big little fight worth it.

Senate Passes Roll Call Voting Bill

The S.C. Senate passed a stand-alone roll call voting bill on Thursday, almost identical to legislation passed by the House and all but ensuring that a law requiring legislators to vote on the record is imminent. The bill would require roll call votes on each section of the annual state budget and any bill or joint resolution having the force and effect of law. The House still must concur with an insignificant language change the Senate made to the bill, but all indications suggest that the House will do so in short order.

........Grotesquely ironic 50-year-old tax news from the world of the rich, famous and decadent: William Holden committed adultery with Jackie Kennedy behind then-President Kennedy's back, because “Holden wanted to get back at Robert Kennedy after the future U.S. attorney general publicly criticized the actor for moving to Switzerland to avoid paying American taxes.

Congressman's IRS idea so close, yet so far

Gee whillikers, a CongressCritter has introduced a bill for a fresh new variation on the tired old theme of “how can we rearrange the present suicidal tax system rather than abolishing it”. No doubt his motives are excellent, and his idea would be an improvement of sorts by putting a lot of income tax camp followers – er, tax preparers – out of work. We don't wish the good people at (for instance) H&R Block ill we'd just love to see them working in some honorable profession that actually produces something useful – same for IRS agents.

Have the IRS prepare returns. FairTax. Flat Tax. How many tax shifts, shafts, shoves and shunts can our would-be saviors come up with rather than take Ron Paul's advice of “Abolish the income tax and replace it with nothing?” Yes, that is the Constitutional position, the moral and lawful answer, and by the way the only thing that works.

Income taxes are simply a form of cannibalism. Cannibalism is crime committed only by the the most demented sickos out there. We in the Patriot Network want what works. Accept no substitutes!

Congressman Proposes Bill to Let IRS Prepare Taxes

Speaking of Ron Paul, here he is again in one of his absolutely most outspoken, jam-packed speeches before Congress. Oh, there's nothing here again but Constitutional common sense, but that becomes an amazing thig in a latter-day Untied States that absolutely despises common sense, logic, reason, caution and moderation in foreign policy.

Ron Paul: Leave Libya Alone!

I confess I hesitate whenever feeling tempted to post an item that challenges the perpetual war fever that prevails since Bush called for a "new" world order and started smashing our former ally Iraq to pieces. I really don't want to offend anybody, and whereas peace was originally a conservative value, a great many of today's Americans have little use for it.

Many Americans have relatives in the armed forces, and this unfortunately robs a great many of them of any interest in the right and wrong of a particular war or aggressive action. We're expected to "support the troops" which is clearly right, but it somehow instantly turns people into war supporters as well. This is akin to the way so many people become big-government socialists the instant they receive their first Social Security check. Oh, forgive me -- I can't seem to stop morphing from concern to irony to sarcasm. I'm just a baby boomer who will never see a cent of SS money and notices that every time there's an action to "defend our freedoms" by killing hordes of distant strangers, freedom is what dies fastest right here. "Truth is the first casualty of war" -- old saying.

Whether you support the wars or side with the Founding Fathers in opposing constantly running off "in search of monsters to destroy" (John Quincy Adams) I beg you not to miss a second of the above video. It reminds us peaceniks how sane we really are, and can point more hawkish viewers to how very far we've strayed from every Constitutional principle today. Nothing Doctor Paul says has anything in common with the bilge spewing forth from other politicians, educators, media talking heads and the like. Nothing!

By an powerful coincidence, this page also came in today.

Fall of the American Empire – Mar. 20, 2011

It includes some exciting news (Tennessee Governor Gets Constitutional and Rejects Obama Care, Utah First State to Have an Official Gun) but also another remarkable video.

Warning to all who have jumped on the anti-Arab bandwagon or fallen prey to anti-Mideastern hysteria: it's a speech by the Nation of Islam's head honcho. I include it because it just happens to with everything the great Dr. Paul says above, albeit from a Muslim point of view. Our policy, you see, is to grab the truth wherever we find it, even if in the mouth of a real or imagined enemy. (Have you by chance read how Bush Sr. admonished Boy George Bush that it his plans for Iraq would be catastrophic for the USA? It's out there.)

We are no fans of Louis Farrakhan, a genuine racist and black supremacist, but note that he (being 78 years old) expresses himself in an old-fashioned way that is, most regrettably, giving way to totally graceless eructations. It's worth noting that takes a pro-Israel and virtually anti-Arab/Muslim political stance!

.............Speaking of diversity and the amazing things it brings about, we are pleased as punch to let you know we've made the SPLC honor roll for what is probably the first time. This is in the category of "coming from you, that's a compliment!"

Let me explain. Ah, where to begin? It's sort of like a doctor attempting to explain the chemistry of cancer to a medical layman. The laughably-misnamed Southern Poverty Law Center is an extremely powerful, concentratedly liberal organization in Alabama that has got most government bodies convinced that it's an authority on bigotry, racism, and terrorists waiting to happen. If you'll notice, in every news report your hear about some supposed hate crime or "anti-semitic" act, the above entity is quoted as an "authority on terrorism", "recognized expert on hate," etc.

But it's all a colossal fraud. The SPLC isn't in the business of identifying threats to the public weal as they claim -- on the contrary it spends every woking day grossly enriching tself by scaring the wealthy into thinking the KKK or neo-Nazis are coming to get them. This the SPLC clowns do by compiling report after fraudulent report falsely tying in genuine conservative activism with any loony/wacko group or individual that makes any headlines -- you know, the way the liberal media instantly jump to equate a Ted McVeigh or Jared Lee Loughner with gun rights and tax freedom advocates, etc. Indeed, the SPLC has been the fuel for such flames of slander and defamation for over 20 years!

The SPLC is in fact the most spectacular hate group in the world. Hate is in fact its business -- and business is booming. Some years ago it bragged on having amassed a war chest of over $110 million via its junk-mail campaigns and mass hypnosis of the military, schools, and even local police departments. Part of its shtick is publishing lists of patriotic groups and leaders that the self-appointed SPLC thought police want the public to regard as the most menacing. But contrary to this twisted, malevolent intent, we the intended victims exult in being called evil by evil, e.g.:

Indeed, Dr. Clarkson and this blogger were honored to be the main focus when the SPLC chose to do a feature story on Anderson-area patriotic workers.

Don't be alarmed -- it's a smear of mammoth proportions. I wrote an eight-part series of articles for the Nationalist Times newspaper debunking the above story's inaccuracies! "Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets" -- Luke 6:22-23. Wow, that passage just brought in a great-looking Bible site:

Gold and Silver on the move out west; Fed and greenback under fire

Yes! for the first time this blogger is aware of, a state's legislature has passed a real-money bill and sent it to a governor. But what will happen from there? Will the pattern of "higher office, bigger sellout" hold true, or will the Beehive State perhaps the cutting edge of a rapidly growing movement -- the first to nullify federal tyranny on this critically important, red-hot issue?
Utah Legislature goes for gold, silver as currency options

The western states are a likely flashpoint for the great revolt against the New World Order if one should break out in this country. They were once the rugged "go west, young man" frontier and are blessedly far removed from Washington DC. They've seen the Sawgrass Rebellion, Sheriff Richard Mack (heard at Freedom Law School's recent conference to wild acclaim), Sheriff Joe Arpaio and other phenomena the fedgov doesn'tlike to think about.
Speaking of the vast gulf between the people and their alleged leaders, tax freedom warrior Larken Rose has just put together a perfect graphic representation of that scene, the IRS in particular:

This very brief and engaging animation is in fact a parable on the whole problem of government power that turns towering citizens into cowering subjects!
As April 15 looms closer the ameriKan sheeple are gearing up for the same old tired ritual -- and the feds have selected the next celebrity sacrifices:
Pacino, Scorsese Slapped with IRS Tax Liens

There's another great gulf or you -- the one between the fantasy world of movie stars and producers and the real world in which April 15 could be merely another day of the year for these media deities -- but that would mean
really thinking outside the box for them, and I doubt they'd ever want to set foot in Hollywood again! If any of you happen to be friends with them, tell them we'll be happy to guide them to safety at this or any stage of their tax lifetime.

Due to the mass moral and spiritual guidance of their ilk, tyranny is galloping in every possibe aspect of life. Did you hear about the shiny new plan to harass any motorist who pays a toll with a larger-denomination of currency?
Florida Toll Booths CAUGHT Illegally Detaining Drivers for Paying with Large Bills

How about this latest demented lunge for your basic privacy rights?
Debit cards: $50 spending limit coming?

If you're starting to ask what there is in existence that the greedy govt-goons haven't already tried to tax, regulate, or otherwise ruin belonging to the people, you're not alone. The rationale for the above item is particularly galling: "to offset lost revenue under the Fed's proposed interchange fee cap." One more reason to get rid of the Fed -- tink how very many problems it would solve instantly.
Here's some more semi-comic relief. Comic in the sense that you have to laugh at such a buffoon passing himself off as President, "semi" in that it spells doom to any country that allows such politics to flourish!

IF --

Some of you will appreciate this and some of you will not. I do not offer an apology for this mailing, because all of it is true.

If any other of our presidents had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head?

If any other of our presidents joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who's side he was on?

If any other of our presidents had pronounced the Marine Corps like Marine Corpse, would you think him an idiot?

If any other of our presidents had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one foreign company had an accident, would you have agreed?

If any other of our presidents had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87000 American workers unemployed would you support him?

If any other of our presidents had been the first President to need a Tele-Prompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes?

If any other of our presidents had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take the First Lady to a play in NYC, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had reduced your retirement plan holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympic Athletes, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought it a proud moment for America?

If any other of our presidents had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia , would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent "Austrian language," would you have brushed it off as a minor slip?

If any other of our presidents had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved?

If any other of our presidents had stated that there were 57 states in the United States, wouldn't you have had second thoughts about his capabilities?

If any other of our presidents would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympic Games would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town, would you not have thought he was a self important, conceited, egotistical jerk.

If any other of our presidents had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to "Cinco de Cuatro" in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, wouldn't you have winced in embarrassment?

If any other of our presidents had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he's a hypocrite?

If any other of our presidents' administrations had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11?

If any other of our presidents had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans, would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence?

If any other of our presidents had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America, would you have ever approved.

If any other of our presidents had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved?

So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? Can't think of anything? Don't worry. He's done all this in 21 months -- so you have at least that much time to come up with an answer.

Every statement and action in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable.

I wonder how many of you will pass this on?

"All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."

Our Liberty Dollar friends are making headlines from the gulag. They need our prayers and our help. I'm guessing the picture of Bernard in stripes is a tasteless doodle by someone opposed to monetary sanity and stability. The news is not all bad, and our side clearly has a chance of winning:

Some of the fedgov high jinks discussed in the second link is part of a program called "dismantlement," i.e. Washington's latest scheme for putting patriotism out of business by attempting to move in on resistance groups and frame them as illegal, then haul them into kangaroo court. (Their actual legality is of no interest -- the fedgoons are just sick of being exposed and challenged!) "Dismantlement" is a crude recycling of the feds' massive COINTELPRO assault on the Bill of Rights which spectacularly blew up in the government's face.... and it was merely one of scads of Federal cloak-and-dagger "operations". Here's another that's just crossed my desk:
Operation Gladio: "One of the most secret programs that ever existed"

Fortunately, great activism is still flourishing. While the fed is putting some of America's best souls ad brains through hell, some are actually suing it, as did The Great One for years and years. This time it's a man from the direction you'd expect the absolute least -- Bloomberg news coverage!

When you see such a miraculous development reported by PBS, you can rest assured that the times they are indeed a-changin'. LOOK at the trillion$ in reporter Bob Everly's charts.... and they're not even talking CAFRs!?!?!!!!

More activism. can't get enough! Taking over a brainwashing meeting is extremely useful:

Let's close for now with some spiritual content. You all know of Pastor Chuck Baldwin, but have you seen his master strokes on the matter of church ruination and those Bible passages modern churchlings love to wrest the most? Note that Pastor Baldwin has a four part series on the subject!

Here's a brilliant yet oddly anonymous writer transcendently coming at the same problem from a different angle -- the curious habit of all peoples to theo-morphize their politician types:

The Biggest Government Lie in All History
