A few fleeting words on AE speak volumes

Spend a few moments with Jack Perkins right in the beginning of this documentary, and notice an odd sequence of events:
The Vanderbilts - An American Dynasty

The Vanderbilt family, he says, was going to town building their mansions and palaces...."And times changed. Uncle Sam started collecting income taxes, and the Great Depression struck at even the very rich. One by one their mansions on Fifth Avenue met the wrecking ball."

Think of that! They started the income tax, and the Great Depression struck. Not a direct, immediate cause-and-effect necessarily but both phenomena were the result of federal warfare against the people -- in a few starkly honest words -- as only seen in a 20th-century dosage.

Of course we in this room have no great sympathy for the Vanderbilts. They and other plutocrat families put down railroad tracks we're still riding on today, yes. But they were among the robber barons who have been crushing free enterprise and innovation since then, too. Still, I hate to hear of grand homes being lost from city streets over taxes -- if that is the case -- even if the people living in them are glorious vermin.

.............Ron Paul is gone from Congress, but he's still doing a lot of good. He fought for true net neutrality as hard as anybody in the private sector and is saying many things the Establishment hates with a purple passion:

Headline just in:  Ron Paul Blames Psychotropic Drugs For “American Sniper” Murder And Other Mass Shootings. No surprise to faithful fatalists, but great to hear him saying it. Extremely distressing is what I'm hearing on the radio just now -- Rand Paul's statement at the CPAC convention that "national security" must be the top priority of any president. No, Randy Pandy, FREEDOM is the thing. Ever heard of it?

.............Add Tom Woods to the people bringing us the gospel of peace on an extremely troublesome subject -- traffic stops:
The DUI Racket, and What to Do at a DUI Checkpoint  

Wheeeee, The DUI RACKET! Did you see that? We are surrounded by rackets, plagued by rackets, force-fed rackets, ruled by rackets. WHY DOESN'T ANYBODY ELSE CALL THEM RACKETS? The guy he interviews seems really sharp. Too long for a meeting video or audio, alas. Wait a minute.... does he actually say around 11-12 that you have the right to demand your attorney when pulled over, and the officer is required to heed it????

..............Mr., Spock died, ho-hum. My fellow fatalists will enjoy a riot of sang-froid viewing THIS:
Spitting Image: "1987 American Movie Awards"

Never forget that he helped snow ameriKa under with Holocaust(TM) guilt by enthusiastically playing one of its main villains, Mel Mermelstein, in a (UGH) TV movie. You don't know what I'm talking about, right?

"Navy Proves Flu Shot Causes  Flu" -- emailed story.

Those constantly assailing Infowars for not meeting their perfect paradigm miss the fact that the team has done more to document conspiracy evil than anybody else on the map. Among headlines they actually show you in this footage is one from Health Impact News reading CDC Admits Flu Vaccine Does Not Work -- Influenza Outbreak on Fully Vaccinated Ship.


Another cultural god fallen..... to tax stultification

I don't know that I've ever seen Robert De Niro act, but Spitting Image once did a brilliant, technically incredible satire on his yankee pompousness and self-admiration. He lives in a huge country that would rather watch movies about athletes, mobsters and Russian roulette than learn its rights before law and government, and he's just become the latest apotheosis of these sorry priorities:

Robert De Niro Socked With $6.4 Million IRS Tax Lien

He can stand it, right? He's worth $200 million, the above figure wouldn't be missed. But the rich hate losing even 10 cents they don't have to, so his choice is now to either resist it on principle or pay it, suffer the humiliation and loss of 3% of his fortune for nothing, and encourage the IRS to continue its rampage through clueless super-rich celebrities.... Oh! He's already paid it:

"The two-time Academy Award-winning actor quickly cut a check for $6.4 million Thursday afternoon", it says, meaning yesterday. Just think -- his millions of worshipers out there have just learned that paying the IRS is a sacred duty! Maybe the tax rats found his longtime director Martin Scorsese such an easy mark they thought they'd try him too?

No tears for Marty here -- he birthed both the blasphemous Last Temptation of Christ flick and the sickeningly yankeefied New York, New York one..... oh, yeah, De Nero was in that, and I saw it. One of the few movies I've ever actually thrown in the trash rather than taking back to the thrift shop for them to make another dollar on.

Pardon my jaundice.... insane yankees from hell are eating my country. Remember, this column is where you get the bad news. For the good, positive political headlines come to your next local Patriot Network meeting. If you're not near one, email me for the latest good news breakthroughs.

RIP Harry, but not his story

Actor Edward Herrmann has gone to his reward. You may know him for "his Emmy-nominated portrayals of Franklin D. Roosevelt on television, Richard Gilmore in Gilmore Girls, a ubiquitous narrator for historical programs on The History Channel and in such PBS productions as Nova, and as a spokesman for Dodge automobiles in the 1990s" (Wikipedia). In other words a totally ordinary, blah media rap sheet -- except that he was the hero of a most remarkable movie for our patriotic purposes, sold for many years by the Patriot Network:

He had a website recounting his career highs and experiences but didn't mention the politically incorrect masterpiece so dear to our hearts. It's to the industry's shame that Harry's War languishes in obscurity today. They've got no excuse -- look at the cast! Ms Page was already a movie legend when it was made, Ms Grassle had starred for years as Michael Landon's wife on Little House on the Prairie, Ms Jens has guested on Star Trek and starred in many things. Mr. Cook is one of those eccentric character actors you see in every 10th movie of the 50s (notably House on Haunted Hill), Stiers had a regular role in the MASH series.

The film was made in 1981, a decade before all this "terr'ism" nonsense came along. Significantly/sickeningly, its poster motto has evolved from "I declare war on the IRS!" to the wimpish, gutless, spineless, idiotic stuff you see above. Even people who don't know the quotation marks around it are a total fraud should find the wording offensive, because it shows again how anxious gliberals to deflect any accusation of wrongdoing (much less perverse arrogance or criminality!) from the powers that be.

If you'll notice, you virtually never hear mention on TV of the US government committing crimes, outrages, mayhem, libel, fraud, mass murder or whatever, even though this is actually what it does all day long. Oh no. Politicians and federal bureaucrats make MISTAKES, fall prey to ERROR, etc. They may occasionally be reported as fouling up, but they never sin, ever ever ever. This "fail" lingo grows legs -- government doesn't even neglect to fulfill its duty, much less refuse to according to talking heads and anybody they allow themselves to be found interviewing -- there are failings only, implying that everybody from the Oval Office to the DOJ, IRS, BATF and PTA has only the best intentions.

"THE IRS WOULDN'T ADMIT THEY MADE A MISTAKE ON HARRY JOHNSON'S TAXES" -- I forget, this may be what happens in the film, but that spineless summary doesn't begin to describe the actual plot. The IRS was defiant, recalcitrant, intransigent, rude, callous in it, even to the point of in effect manslaughtering an old lady, representative of the few people that ever mount a serious citizen challenge to it.

Note that in the image above, the hardy patriot is still crashing upward through the three-dimensional, architectural-looking I-R-S letters as when the movie was new . The 2005 DVD cover below is much more considerate of the tax rats -- the letters are just kind of crumbing of their own accord, and Harry's just resting his arm on one of them! Believe this is an edition offered by the Mormons, and isn't that just like a church today?

Actor Stiers shocked some people when asked what his favorite role was. Wikipedia: the interviewer was expecting him to say something about his character in M*A*S*H, but instead he paused for a second and said "There was this movie about the IRS and I was the biggest [bleep] in the office...."

What a shame Herrmann was so airheaded he prized his FDR portrayals instead Harry Johnson. A sad commentary on entertainers at large, a lousy reflection on where people's minds are.

Fun quote from a comment added to the Herrmann tribute posted at Calling Ron Paul an isolationist is like calling your neighbor a hermit because he doesn't come over and break your window - unknown.

This from the often piercing if pointlessly filthy-mouthed P.J. O'Rourke: “At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.”

From the wild kaleidoscope of tax news

Gee, what can they be up to now, in their Queen of Hearts way?
IRS apologizes for seizing bank accounts of small businesses 
The IRS said it is changing its policies and apologizing for seizing banks accounts from otherwise law-abiding business owners simply because they structured bank transactions to avoid federal reporting requirements. 

Only time will tell whether this is a sincere change of heart or a flash in the pan. 

IRS apologizes? Why is it that I simply can't get my head around that concept? I really want to, Please me know if any of you manage it.

This doesn't look at all like satire.

Big announcement: fedgov will now launch a startlingly new, innovative concept
U.S. creates new agency to lead cyberthreat tracking

Fooled you!

But at the risk of marring the paraprosdokian impact of the above revelation, I compulsively ask yet again: If the FBI, CIA, BMEWS, NORAD, DOD, NORTHCOM, Department of Home Insecurity and on and on and on haven't made us safe from "terror", what good will it do to add yet another layer of "TRACKING"?

Keeping us safe is clearly not what they're doing. We're not safe as long as our borders are destroyed, and this constant bombing of total strangers that Israel doesn't like accomplishes absolutely nothing of any value, even for Israel. There are 5 or 500 other agendas at work there, but the more the government hollers about making us safer, the more it itself simultaneously rapes, robs and murders us.

Yes, rapes, robs and murders!

It's a given that if citizens won't organize to bring sanity and perspective where ever-increasing "defense" madness exists, "defense" is going to go on devouring more and ever more funds, natural resources, human potential and meaning from our lives.

We call things what they are around here, not what people fondly hope or desperately imagine they are.

Heretical thoughts on Our Troops, formerly Our Boys

Please don't take this post the wrong way.
What “Fighting for Our Freedom” Actually Means in Police State USA?

#1, My only desire in posting this is the point out the real dynamics of this age of real and imagined terror.

#2. I've never gone along with putting a question mark at the end of a mere clause that superficially looks like a question, as in the above headline. An implied sentence, perhaps, but as they've got it it's cringeworthy.

I'm illustrious company in opposing all "war" against people not actually threatening me personally. The Lindberghs, the Founding Fathers and numerous respected thinkers and analysts today are in this category -- presumably including anybody who writes for

Arabs and Moslems have never harmed me, except in taking advantage of the systematic destruction of our borders like the all other Third Worlders are doing. If American soldiers want to save us from them, why not come home and put the screws on Congress and the border patrol to put a stop to that?

There I go again, contrasting the abstract and distant with the immediate. But, as the article says, the establishment's ironclad focus on far-flung Big Ideas is a total disaster.

9/11 was a clear inside job, but even if these "wars" were aimed at redressing it, all people of normal reflexes warned that that was disastrous notion. The lie of the concept was revealed immediately when (shortly after the Big Muddy was entered), Bush and his neocon demons were yammering about "nation building" (as if there were no nations over there already) and "bringing democracy" to Afghanistan et al.

It's true about terrorism by the feds and other government bodies. Of course this "war on terror" (an emotion) is really a war OF terror against people who've never harmed us unprovoked, but stateside governments are terrorizing and terrifying their own constituents -- us, the people. For daily updates, see and, et  al. An alarming percent of incidents happens at the police vs. citizen level, not just the also infamous IRS vs. citizen one.

If you don't know anybody whose life has been ruined by IRS, police or the various government levels between them, you certainly will before much longer.... Whoa, this just in this very minute:


The mindset that is common to U.S. troops serving overseas is that they are all doing it for America, for us, for our rights and  freedoms, for our safety and security. They’ll all tell you that they are doing it because they love their country.
There’s one big problem with that mindset, however. The truth is that the troops, through what they’re doing over there, are indirectly destroying our country, our rights and freedoms, our safety and security, and our economic well-being.
Ever since 9/11 and even before, the troops have been killing and maiming people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan, and elsewhere in the Middle East. The numbers of people killed and maimed reach into the hundreds of thousands. Only a very tiny minority of those who have been killed or maimed had anything to do with 9/11 attacks. Most of the people killed or maimed just wanted to rid their lands of U.S. troops and U.S. bureaucrats or just happened to be near someone who was being targeted by the troops.....

Of course I disagree that any meaningful number of "gentile" Mideasterners had anything to do with 9/11. Of course the rationale for most of the "war" has been that we've got to chase Al-Qaeda from country to country to make sure they don't strike again, and who cares if we leave total destruction and death behind. We're us, right? Pride goeth not only on a bumper sticker, but before a fall.....

Tough questions for the DMV

Or, depending on your state, the MVD. Via email:

  The "Driver's License Dear Department of Motor Vehicles Director, 
I have some questions regarding the application of the “motor vehicle” codes. As your organization is the prime testing and “licensing” agency for “drivers”, I believe it is incumbent upon your agency to provide redress for any questions arising out of confusion with the statutes/codes/case law, etc. in reference to these areas. 
As I cannot make future decisions based simply on MY interpretation of what I think a pamphlet or publication says and I cannot interpret law as I am not a lawyer, I require written confirmation directly from you as to the exact stance and beliefs of your office in regard to my questions and as such, a cookie-cutter response of pre-printed sales fliers will not be sufficient as a reply to my questions. I require you adhere to the administration of your duties as director of operations of your particular office, and answer my questions individually and in writing. 
That is why this letter is addressed to you personally and directly. You are the leader and therefore I must assume, the highest authority on the practices, policies and official “legal” stance on ALL aspects of The DMV and the lawful relationship set up between the DMV and those who fill out and sign an application for a “driver’s license”. 
As it is a right of the American people to petition their government for redress of ANY grievances and you are a government agency, I consider a response to my questions MANDATORY on your part. I will accept nothing less than full cooperation with THIS official request for information on your part. I require this information in order to make legal decisions that very much will affect my future, therefore it is extremely important that I receive accurate information regarding my questions. Your response(s) will be necessary to effect future decisions on my part. That is why a pamphlet or stamped out response will not be sufficient as a proper reply. 
As I understand this may be asking for a little extra effort on your part I have prepared the flowing separate page(s) to simply be filled out, copied and returned to me with answers and full U.S. Code and law references included. If the form is incomplete or blank, the answer will be considered to be null and void as a proper reply to a request for information. 
I’m sure you believe that most if not all of the questions I have can probably be addressed by a flier or information pamphlet, but that would not be sufficient for the reasons previously stated in regard to my issues, hence; 
My questions center around the claim by the DMV that in order to “drive” or “operate” a “motor vehicle”, or obtain a “driver’s license”, that I need a Social Security Number. If this is accurate, then the following questions arise. To whit the following; 
1) Can the government require a man or woman born in America to obtain a “license” in order to move their property from place to place in the mode of the day for private purposes, who is not involved in traffic, commerce, ferrying passengers, carrying cargo or trade for profit on the roadways? 
Your Answer: 
Yes - ______________ or No - ______________ 
Code Reference - _____________________________ 
Statute Reference - ______________________________ 
Case Law Reference - _________________________________ 
Constitutional Reference - _________________________________ 
2) Is it mandatory in law or in the Constitution for ANYONE in America to obtain, possess, use, or produce upon demand a Social Security Number in order to obtain a “Driver’s license”? 
Your Answer: 
Yes - ______________ or No - ______________ 
Code Reference - _____________________________ 
Statute Reference - ______________________________ 
Case Law Reference - _________________________________ 
Constitutional Reference - _________________________________ 
3) Is it mandatory in law or in the Constitution for ANYONE in America to obtain, possess, use, or produce upon demand a Social Security Number ? 
Your Answer: 
Yes - ______________ or No - ______________ 
Code Reference - _____________________________ 
Statute Reference - ______________________________ 
Case Law Reference - _________________________________ 
Constitutional Reference - _________________________________ 
4) Is the Department of Motor Vehicles a private, for profit corporation that is simply regulated by the government? 
Your Answer: 
Yes - ______________ or No - ______________ 
Code Reference - _____________________________ 
Statute Reference - ______________________________ 
Case Law Reference - _________________________________ 
Constitutional Reference - _________________________________ 
5) If your agency is part of the government, then what part of the government is it? 
Your Answer: __________________________ 
Code Reference - _____________________________ 

Thank you in advance for your accurate answers and attention to detail in regard to my questions. 
Sincerely,  __________________ 

After I'd originally moved to SC, I wrote its DMV and asked whether I was required to get a driver's license if I wasn't going to be using the roads for commercial purposes. They sent me from one department of government after another for an answer -- nobody would answer the extremely simple question for herself.

This told me the supposed extremists and right-wing nuts challenging the "drivers license" construct were on to something. If only enough people would put it to the test, we'd be freer.

........Speaking of questions, please take this show for a spin:
Former CIA Agent: Back to Afghanistan? - Michael Scheuer

We've heard before from Mr, Scheuer, former head of the fedgov's bin Laden unit, but never with an entirely sane interrogator -- and certainly not for a half hour! By 6:10 he's summing up what the Arab world that we're destroying thinks of us in a nutshell, i.e. they see "arrogance, hubris and effeminacy" in our behavior and M.O.

Think about that -- what an odd combination! Wow, get Wikipedia on hubris: "extreme pride or self-confidence. When it offends the gods of ancient Greece, it is usually punished." That's us to a T, for over 100 years now! But effeminacy -- with all the bombs we're dropping and towns we're obliterating?

Alas, the shoe fits perfectly there, too. Washington is run by "chickenhawks" -- rich and famous politicians demanding and running wars from air-conditioned facilities with a coffee maker in every room. They don't don uniform, rifle, hazmat suit etc. themselves to go off and kill these strangers or even send their own military-age children. In other words, in spite of its indescribably huge, sprawling destructiveness, there's no actual manhood in the White House or even the DOD.

Obama, the leader of the free world -- when he's "married" to a known transvestite and doesn't have the guts to admit a single unpleasant truth about himself? THIS preening little girl, this pathological narcissist -- , this 98-pound weakling for Commander-in-Chief? I think I'm seeing what they mean.

Yes, you can be a totally unmanly blob of snot and still sign bills for international genocide, then hit the golf club fora little rest from your relaxation. But that really makes you a psychopath.

How much stinking dirt on the IRS do people want declare that it must be abolished?

Or should one say how much vile filth can be exposed on one federal gang? Don't miss the short video here:
IRS knowingly rehired tax cheats, other employees with ‘performance’ issues: Audit

It doesn't hurt that this item comes via a major DC newspaper. "Performance issues" -- were they once known as black marks?

Somebody else sees it. No income tax! No flat tax! No "fair" tax! NO TAX SHIFT!

The following came via email. This is NOT an endorsement of any business or product. Many look great to me personally, but try them at your own risk! 


If you haven't been watching the new mini-series "Sons of Liberty" on the History Channel........
you've been missing about the best television that I've ever seen!  Riveting!!!!
To hell with doorbells, ringing phones, text messages, burning pizza, screaming kids .......
                                                                  ....... they can all just wait until this episode is over!!!!!!!

Henry "Jake" Morgan

About Sons of Liberty
SONS OF LIBERTY, the three-night, six-hour event, follows a defiant and radical group of young men–Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Dr. Joseph Warren–as they band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation.

In the beginning ......  there was no personal income tax!

From 1789 until 1942 we had an AWESOME, constitutional, liberty sustaining, prosperity creating tax system 
to fund the federal governmentIt was designed by the founders themselves. It did NOT involve reporting  ANY 
of one's personal financial information or the filing of ANY paperwork WHATSOEVER by private citizens. The 
current system AND all of the ridiculous replacements being proffered today TOTALLY SUCK compared with 
what the founders devised.  There is a saying that goes, "If things are going badly, look back to when you were 
last doing really well, find out what you changed, and change it back."

EUREKA! long, detailed list of major false-flag operations BY THE ESTABLISHMENT

Not sure what a false flag action is? It should soon be obvious:
Updated List of ADMITTED False Flag Attacks

The importance of this page is impossible to relate -- it's one of the key documents of the twenty-first (or any) century. No meaningful understanding of politics or history is possible without knowing and freely acknowledging that governments are evil and commit evil acts. There's absolutely no excuse for it, no cover or alibi. If, for instance, the US government has to resort to never-ending murder and such huge lies to keep going, it's lost all legitimacy. "How did our oil get under their sand?"

In other words, it cannot be the case that America's existence depends on, well, terrorism by another name. Otherwise we're no better than the communist Cubans, rabid Ayrabs or whoever else we're trying to frame with some atrocity.

As we go about our daily business, be it a blissful white picket fence know-nothing suburban life with two cats in the yard or somebody purporting to lead us to ever higher ground from a pulpit, a U.S. senate seat or movie stardom, if we're not dealing with ameriKa's filthy false-flag record we're living in fantasy land and only going through the motions.

The above article actually starts to make the communists look good. It's about the most solidly hyperlinked (i.e. documented) page I've seen this year, and that's saying something -- hard to miss as the only clue of a linkage is slightly less dark type, but look for the gray versus black words and click away, please! WOW, get this one from an item beginning "The former Italian Prime Minister":

Get that -- "strategy of tension," yet another buzzterm we urgently need to keep on the tip of our tongue! It's a key strategy among full Hegelians, e.g. top-ranking Freemasons, under a sinister heading of ordo ab chao -- mining order from chaos, much of it planned, rigged and perpetrated by those doing the mining.
