Florida Man Has His “Gestapo” Moment of the Day

DON’T PICK UP THE POWER LINES, KIDDIES.

One of the universal failings of the American writer is the tendency to insert “Nazi” references into every piece that involves a tyrannical action by the State. How about giving Mao and Stalin equal time for a change.

Other than the Nazi references, this libertarian piece by Tom di Lorenzo is very revealing of the bad side of the American cop.

It was a beautiful morning here on the east coast of South Florida, especially since the hurricane shifted west, and we are no longer even in “the cone of uncertainty.” We’re still supposed to have 50-75 mph winds tonight, but no “hurricane of the century.”

The state and local governments here are in full Gestapo mode, going on television to constantly bark out orders: Leave now! Don’t buy too much gas! Be nice to your neighbors! Curfew!! Get off the streets! Don’t pick up any fallen power lines! Stay away from the snakes and alligators! No liquor sales! Shut down your business — now!

Thinking that I was living in America and not Nazi Germany, I set out for a walk on the beach around 9 AM since I expected to be cooped up for a day or two. I couldn’t get to the beach, however, since the police had blocked the bridge over the intracoastal waterway, which is about a quarter mile from the beach. You could get to the beach by showing the constables the proper papers proving that you lived in a house at the beach, but no one else could.

So I walked elsewhere, and at the end of my walk I noticed that the Sunnoco station in my neighborhood was still open (all other stores are closed and hurricane shuttered). So I went inside to buy a bottle of water and, before I could pay, a local cop barged in and yells at the owner over the heads of the customers in line: “Shut down now! Curfew!” This was before noon and there is a curfew, but not until 3 PM. So all the customers who were making their last minute beer-and-chips/hurricane-party purchases had to leave and the proprietor had to shut everything down and lock the doors while the cop remained there to supervise.

Most people in my town are at home or have left, so walking around, it seems that there is a police car prowling every block. Talk about easy overtime pay.

American politicians barking the same orders over and over and over reveals their petty, do-gooder, despotic nature. It is disgusting how many times the same crap has been repeated over and over the last few days by mayors and police chiefs, as well as the governor of Florida.

We are not children, most of us. The dummies too stupid to not pick up downed power lines and pet alligators deserve what they get.

DO NOT PET THE ALLIGATORS, DUMMIES.

Paul Craig Roberts: Facts Replaced by Propaganda Everywhere We Look

JAMES DAMORE, FIRED GOOGLE ENGINEER.

Coed has published a good example of the propaganda that Paul Craig Roberts discusses here. The Coed piece claims it is “sexist” and denigrates women to acknowledge differences between the sexes. And the young feminists eat it up.

Since this piece was written, James Damore has been fired.

Russia is under economic and propaganda attack from the US. Additionally, the US is surrounding Russia and China with military and missile bases, leading both countries to the conclusion that Washington is preparing a surprise nuclear attack. Despite the high level of threat that Washington represents to the two nuclear powers, the English language Russian press can still find time to alert us to the increasing persecution of male Americans in behalf of feminist myths.

RT reports on a memo sent by a male engineer within Google. The memo committed the impermissible offense of challenging the feminist allegation that women are paid less than men in science and technology because of male discrimination against women. The engineer expressed a cogent argument, once understood as the obvious truth, that, despite sexism and all that, there are “differences in distributions of traits between men and women.” He lists male traits and female traits and nowhere says female traits are less important, only that they lie in different areas.

The engineer says that truth about male/female differences can no longer be uttered, because of “our shaming culture” that feminists and Identity Politics have created. We are obliged to ignore all factual evidence because the evidence does not support the ideology.

The engineer, so far undiscovered and not yet fired, was denounced by Google’s new vice president for Diversity, Integrity and Governance, Danielle Brown—a woman of course—for advancing “incorrect assumptions about gender.” There is no known scientific evidence attesting to the incorrectness of the engineer’s exposition, and even if there were there is nothing unusual about Americans having incorrect opinions. What Danielle Brown means is that what we all know to be true is inconsistent with the feminist ideology and therefore impermissible.

The unasked and unanswered question remains. How does a culture, or merely ordinary competence, survive when propaganda is elevated over fact?

The Biological Extinction of Europeans

AFRICAN PARASITES ARRIVE IN ITALY.

Africans are turning Europe into Africa, a turd world continent of stupid, violent, lazy, fecund monsters. The facts are presented here nicely, but the author’s policy conclusion is totally wrong.

Some European countries, namely Italy, Germany, France and the UK, are facing the so-called “substitution of nations,” where the national ethnical majority is disappearing physically and biologically, and is being substituted by migrants, according to a recent report. Sputnik Italy discussed the issue with Daniele Scalea, the author of the report.

The recent report of the Italian-based Machiavelli Center of Political and Strategic Studies (Centro studi politici e strategici Machiavelli), “How immigration is changing Italian demographics” has revealed that a number of European countries are facing the “biological and physical extinction” of their national ethnicities.

Ethnic majorities in such countries as Italy, Germany, France and the UK, are gradually turning into ethnic minorities, while being “substituted” by incoming migrants.

Sputnik Italy discussed the issue with Daniele Scalea, an analyst at the center and the author of the report.

Migration is drastically changing the habitual course of life in Italy, he told Sputnik. The reason for the influx of African migrants into Europe is not wars or catastrophes, but an explosive demographic increase on the African continent, from 9 percent to 25 percent of the global population throughout the last century.

McCain Death Watch: What the End of McCain Means for America

The following piece was clearly written before the big announcement Wednesday evening that Senator John McCain is suffering from what is obviously terminal brain cancer.

McCain’s doom may be an unhappy moment for him, his family, and the neocon warmongers that counted on him to get World War III done, but for the rest of America and the world, McCain’s total powerlessness is a good thing.

I’ve bolded key points for you skim readers.

Lew Rockwell

The Republicans finally giving up on passing an Obamacare Lite bill (now they’re going for full repeal with no immediate replacement) is a signal that big changes are on the horizon.

Trump seems more than happy with this outcome. As he should be, since this is what he originally promised.

But John McCain and the GOP leadership probably didn’t appreciate the open insurrection in the Senate.

And you can bet that now the Democrats are running scared. That they remain committed to Russia-Gate tells you just how badly they are positioned for the 2018 midterms.

With donations crashing, Kid Rock declaring to run against Debbie Stabenow in Michigan, and Diane Feinstein retiring there is the potential for a real collapse of seniority for the Democrats at the committee level in the Senate, where all the power is concentrated.

And that brings me to John McCain. Because, as I made clear in my last article, John McCain is the lynchpin to Trump getting some semblance of control over Congress. McCain is a powerful senior member of a number of committees. He ran for re-election at 79 years old to retain that seniority for the neoconservatives to enact its nihilistic foreign policy.

Make no mistake, McCain, like the rest of the DNC and GOP leadership, is a member of the “Uniparty.” That’s the one that frog-marches us towards global government, universal suffering and perpetual war.

Which is why Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell announced that the Senate will vote on a clean repeal of Obamacare without any replacement is so important.

First, it means that John McCain’s health issues are more serious than they have let on to this point. Because McCain is the leading stalking horse for the Democrats within the GOP. If he leads the way, he can keep enough members in line to get a bad bill passed.

Second, it means that the GOP leadership no longer feels it needs Obamacare to wipe the floor with the Democrats in the 2018 mid-terms.

Third, it begins the collapse of the Uniparty opposition within the GOP to Trump’s domestic policy. McConnell wouldn’t have done this if there was a way to salvage Obamacare for its corporate backers – the ones who wrote the bill in the first place. So, like the good cockroach he is, he is acceding to the reality that if they don’t repeal Obamacare now, when it collapses for real it will no longer be the Democrats’ issue.

It’ll be theirs.

But there’s more to this saga. It’s likely the end of John McCain as a major political force. Obamacare is the thin edge of the wedge that breaks the wall in front of Trump’s plans for reform. It’s a major campaign promise fulfilled. I told you that Trump needed to deal with McCain to get things moving.

It seems that time and karma may have done the job for him.

This piece barely scratches the surface of what McCain’s doom means to American foreign and domestic policy. With Trump announcing on Wednesday that he was pulling the CIA out of Syria in accord with President Putin’s wishes, Trump was sticking it to dying McCain, who’s been a real obstructionist to draining the swamp and making America great.

Now, if only Hillary would kick the bucket.

Black Professor Refutes Claims that Confederates Were Traitors

I learned some history by reading this piece by Dr. Walter Williams, who works as an economics professor at conservative George Mason University.

Lew Rockwell

My “Rewriting American History” column of a fortnight ago, about the dismantling of Confederate monuments, generated considerable mail. Some argued there should not be statues honoring traitors such as Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis, who fought against the Union. Victors of wars get to write the history, and the history they write often does not reflect the facts. Let’s look at some of the facts and ask: Did the South have a right to secede from the Union? If it did, we can’t label Confederate generals as traitors.

Article 1 of the Treaty of Paris (1783), which ended the war between the Colonies and Great Britain, held “New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, to be free sovereign and Independent States.” Representatives of these states came together in Philadelphia in 1787 to write a constitution and form a union.

During the ratification debates, Virginia’s delegates said, “The powers granted under the Constitution being derived from the people of the United States may be resumed by them whensoever the same shall be perverted to their injury or oppression.” The ratification documents of New York and Rhode Island expressed similar sentiments.

At the Constitutional Convention, a proposal was made to allow the federal government to suppress a seceding state. James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution,” rejected it. The minutes from the debate paraphrased his opinion: “A union of the states containing such an ingredient (would) provide for its own destruction. The use of force against a state would look more like a declaration of war than an infliction of punishment and would probably be considered by the party attacked as a dissolution of all previous compacts by which it might be bound.”

America’s first secessionist movement started in New England after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Many were infuriated by what they saw as an unconstitutional act by President Thomas Jefferson. The movement was led by Timothy Pickering of Massachusetts, George Washington’s secretary of war and secretary of state. He later became a congressman and senator. “The principles of our Revolution point to the remedy — a separation,” Pickering wrote to George Cabot in 1803, for “the people of the East cannot reconcile their habits, views, and interests with those of the South and West.” His Senate colleague James Hillhouse of Connecticut agreed, saying, “The Eastern states must and will dissolve the union and form a separate government.” This call for secession was shared by other prominent Americans, such as John Quincy Adams, Elbridge Gerry, Fisher Ames, Josiah Quincy III and Joseph Story. The call failed to garner support at the 1814-15 Hartford Convention.

The U.S. Constitution would have never been ratified — and a union never created — if the people of those 13 “free sovereign and Independent States” did not believe that they had the right to secede. Even on the eve of the War of 1861, unionist politicians saw secession as a right that states had. Rep. Jacob M. Kunkel of Maryland said, “Any attempt to preserve the union between the states of this Confederacy by force would be impractical and destructive of republican liberty.” The Northern Democratic and Republican parties favored allowing the South to secede in peace.

Northern newspapers editorialized in favor of the South’s right to secede. New-York Tribune (Feb. 5, 1860): “If tyranny and despotism justified the Revolution of 1776, then we do not see why it would not justify the secession of Five Millions of Southrons from the Federal Union in 1861.” The Detroit Free Press (Feb. 19, 1861): “An attempt to subjugate the seceded States, even if successful, could produce nothing but evil — evil unmitigated in character and appalling in extent.” The New-York Times (March 21, 1861): “There is a growing sentiment throughout the North in favor of letting the Gulf States go.”

Confederate generals were fighting for independence from the Union just as George Washington and other generals fought for independence from Great Britain. Those who’d label Gen. Robert E. Lee as a traitor might also label George Washington as a traitor. I’m sure Great Britain’s King George III would have agreed.

In America Only the Innocent Go to Prison

FRAN AND DAN KELLER. CONVICTED OF A CRIME THAT NEVER HAPPENED.

Whether you’re a white single mom, a black man, or an innocent white man divorcing his wife, the American legal system can put you into prison even though you’ve done nothing illegal.

Paul Craig Roberts exposes several prominent cases in which innocent people were sent to prison. Dr. Roberts makes clear that it’s part of a corrupt Deep State legal system, not an anomaly.

As he notes, not even President Trump is immune from Deep State machinations that could target you, me, or anybody for imprisonment.

Lew Rockwell

In 1992 Fran and Dan Keller were convicted despite the absence of any evidence of raping a 3-year old, a crime that never occurred. Among the absurd charges was the transport of children to Mexico to be raped by military officials. The Kellers spent 21 years in prison before finally being exonerated by a conviction integrity unit that found no credible evidence for the conviction.

This kind of ridiculous conviction plagued child care providers during the 1980s and into the 1990s. The Amirault family who operated the Fells Acres Day Care Center in Massachusetts were ruined. The Massachusettes Supreme court judge who kept the Amirault in prison despite the completely obvious fabricated case is today a Harvard University law professor. In Wenatchee, Washington, scores of people were ruined by insane allegations of a church practicing Satanic Sex Rituals on children. There was the Little Rascals Day Care case in North Carolina, the McMartin child care case in California, and many others. Few remember that President Bill Clinton’s attorney general, Janet Reno, rose to name recognition based on false convictions from child abuse witch hunts.

The insanity spread wider. Young women with emotional problems were told by “therapists” that they had been raped by their fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and brothers. Families everywhere were blown apart by wild charges.

THE DEEP STATE IS TARGETING THIS GUY FOR A FRAME UP.
