A closer look at right wing populism and “America First”

In the last post I mentioned a list of issues to use with the “average man on the street” towards the end of the post. I would like to look a little closer at the first two in that list as they really go together in my mind. Recall that the point of all of this is to find a broad alliance to stop the tyranny that the state has become all over the West, and especially in the US Empire.

The first two issues from my list that might drive a populist campaign of unity with libertarians and perhaps even anarchists are listed here:

1) America First. A key point, and one that is being used in the present election cycle by Donald Trump with great effectiveness. The American economy is stagnating. Many cities are dying and the nation’s infrastructure is crumbling, all while we give money away to other countries and police the world at a cost of unimaginable amounts of money. Plus our foreign policy tends to make people hate us.

2) Bring all troops home. We are killing innocent men, women, and children overseas in countries that have never threatened us and have no ability to invade this country; other than by us allowing emigration of their people who would attack us via terrorism.

Number one and number two hold a lot in common, but number two probably speaks, at first at least, to the left as much as the right at this time. The anti-war left was always for bringing the troops home, but that left appears to have almost died out. However, properly explained I think the common man, perhaps even a modern progressive, can be made to see the wisdom of the “old right” and their foreign policy of non-interventionism. The ancient wisdom of “live and let live” was at the heart of the old right.

Consider the issue “America First”. Some think that is some sort of newly manufactured campaign slogan that Trump thought up or had some paid experts think up. But the “America First” crowd was originally the “old right” of the 30s to the 50s. They believed that we should keep our armies inside our own boarders are be ready to fight a defense war if need be. They believed that with an ocean on both sides of us that we really did not need to worry about an invasion but should be ready for one.

The cost of stationing fighting men and materials rises exponentially as the distance from the homeland grows. This is known by military experts and was once the topic of a long lecture hosted on C-SPAN on cable in the 80s.

How many troops do we have stationed abroad? In a story in The Nation in early 2015 it was reported that there were approximately 800 bases in foreign countries around the world. These troops cost tons of money to station overseas even when they are not actively engaged in creating new enemies by murdering innocent men, women, and children in countries that have never threatened to invade the US — and have not the least bit of ability to do so. Just having the bases costs tons of money that the state takes from all of us and that could certainly be put to better use.

How much does this overseas projection of power cost? Military spending is said to have accounted for 54% of all federal discretionary spending, a total of $598.5 billion in 2015. Then there is the “off budget” spending on wars and intelligence agencies which are all part of the US Empire and its determination to rule the world.The actual total amount spent on policing the world is hard to pin down exactly due to the secret nature of the more shadowy agencies.

If the USA would adopt a defensive posture for the military, bring the troops home to defend this country, and stop invading countries around the world we could fund much of item number one — fixing America itself with the savings. We could put people to work fixing the infrastructure that is in a sad, crumbing state. Saving approximately one half of all discretionary spending in a multi Trillion dollar budget would fix a lot of infrastructure and put a lot of people to work.

If we adopted a policy of non-interventionism and neutrality, we could practice the free-market capitalism that made the country rich. Instead of managing trade to benefit the well connected corporations and the ultra rich, we could let laissez-faire capitalism bring us the blessings of a really free market and not the crony-capitalism that we have practiced for decades on end. Truly free trade with other nations builds friendship and reduces the odds of any war greatly. But first we must bring home the troops and stop threatening anyone who disagrees with us on various issues.

But can we sell non-interventionism to the right wing? Certainly we can. Consider these words from Paul Gottfried:

Only a Neanderthal cave dweller would not notice that self-identified conservatives have been raging against the neoconservative foreign policy for decades, that is, the policy that Thiessen was paid richly to defend. For starters, there are numerous websites, such as this one, that have defended a more restrained engagement with the world than the one advocated by the last Republican administration and it’s unmistakably neoconservative “advisers.” Moreover, the entire Old Right, most notably Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul, has been declaiming against neoconservative warmongers for generations, and before them we had George F. Kennan, Robert A. Taft, libertarians of all kinds, and the later Herbert Hoover, warning us to  avoid foreign entanglement. Yesterday I walked into my local post office in South Central Pennsylvania and listened to die-in-the-wool right-wingers, including two army veterans, screaming against further military commitments. None of my fellow residents at the post office could ever be mistaken for a leftist. In fact, they were ardent Trump-supporters, who were worried “about what’s going on in this country.” And they were most definitely immigration restrictionists, although decency prevents me from repeating their opinions on this subject.

Warmongering by the neo-cons has done more damage to this country, and the world in general, than anything I can think of. If you wonder where the hoard of Muslims flooding the western countries came from, just remember it was the neo-cons who lobbied for the destruction of every country in the middle east other than Saudi Arabia.

There are two different concepts, patriotism and liberal internationalism, at issue here.It is fine to be “patriotic” in the sense of cherishing the nation, that is, the people, land and society. It is another entirely to send American armies all over the globe to invade and array of enemies, each one said to be the  most recent incarnation of Nazi Germany.

It is time to dismantle the world wide empire and stop interventions all around the globe. It is time to put America first and let peace, prosperity, and mutual cooperation be the motto of our nation once again — just as it was in the beginning.

  1. Mark,

    It is useful to look at the history of the USA. Bill Still in the The Money Masters Utube documents the fight against ‘Fractional Reserve’ Fraud from the time of Jesus and before. (I am not sure how much of that Utube is accurate BTW but the basics are correct.) Sorry this is a bit of a ramble but I do not want to write a book, just hit a few points.

    In 1913 we lost our free country.
    The European Central Bankers got a Central bank, the Fed, owned by THEM and not US citizens. Then FDR transferred US privately owned gold to the Fed and through banks abroad demanding gold in return for fiat US dollars that gold was transferred out of the country to the European Bankers.

    There were also two Constitutional Amendments that removed the brake on Federal Government power. One by changing the election of the Senate from state legislature elected to a direct vote and the second by allowing the direct taxation of the American people by the Federal Government. The Fed takes advantage of these two changes by lending printed out of thin air fiat currency to the government and recieves back work done by Americans, that is the taxes taken from their pay checks.

    A smal portion of that tax money is used to buy the votes of the lazy parasite class.

    “A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.” – George Bernard Shaw, Fabian Socialist.

    However the biggest portion was used to fund useless wars. This kills off Alpha-males and diverts the attention of the masses while enriching the Elite and the Banksters.

    In 1915 J. P. Morgan, an agent of the Rothschilds, plus the munitions manufactories (the beginning of the Military-Industrial complex) bought control of the US MSM. It is at that point the USA went from isolationist to constantly at war through the gaslighting of the public.

    G. Edward Griffin, yeah a John Bircher, put together a series of interesting articles that have since vanished from the internet. Luckily Silver Bear Cafe kept copies. The third pdf is of interest: Days of Infamy — THE STRATEGY TO GET THE U.S. INTO WAR
    It goes into how we were fooled into going into war. There are plenty of other sites with similar documentation but not put together so concisely.
    …………………

    Now fast forward to today and we see the same thing happening again. This time it is de-stabilizing the Middle East. (Sorry this is where it gets messy)

    The Rockefeller’s and Saudi Arabia formed Aramco. As Murray N. Rothbard succinctly summed it up:
    “It all boils down to a happy case of the ‘partnership of industry and government’ – happy, that is, for the Saud family and for the Rockefeller oil interests.”

    Unkown to many is the Rockefeller — Bush connection. Seems Great Grandaddy Bush got his start as a Rockefeller employee just like Maurice Strong did. Samuel Prescott Bush (October 4, 1863 – February 8, 1948)

    …In 1901, [Sam] Bush returned to Columbus to be General Manager of Buckeye Steel Castings Company, which manufactured railway parts. The company was run by Frank Rockefeller, the brother of oil magnate John D. Rockefeller, and among its clients were the railroads controlled by E. H. Harriman. The Bush and Harriman families would be closely associated at least until the end of World War II. In 1908, Rockefeller retired and Bush became president of Buckeye, a position he would hold until 1927, becoming one of the top industrialists of his generation…. WIKI

    ……………………..

    Note that the 9/11 Twin Towers attack was a SAUDI ARABIAN attack on the USA. They are SUNNI yet the USA retaliates by attacking Shiites in Iraq and destabilizing the Shiite leadership in Iran. ! WTF!!!
    (ISIS is also SUNNI.)

    This map puts it in perspective

    Clinton gets 20% of her donations from Saudi Arabia…

    So what about Quadaffi, Libia and Benghazi. They are Sunni according to the map.

    Benghazi may have been about gun running and Stevens knew too much. That maybe why the US military was ordered to STAND DOWN and Hillary ignored 300 increasingly frantic e-mail requesting more protection by Stevens. Alternately Stevens may have been set-up for kidnapping as an exchange for the Blind Sheik and when soldiers disobeyed the stand down orders the rebels thought they had been double crossed by Hillary and Obummer. The one thing we do know is that Congress will cover up the truth like a cat covers feces.

    Quadaffi:

    I noted at the time that Ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair (FABIAN) was in the pay of J.P Morgan and was a friend of Quadaffi who got his son into the London School of Economics. Quadaffi, was about to upset the Fractional Reserve banking/US petro-Dollar apple cart by issuing gold and silve coin for use in Africa. I wonder where the tons and tons of gold and silver went…. As a side note a pamphlet printed by the Fabian Society was sighted often in Egypt just before the Arab Spring.

    Here is the relevant bit from the investigation into Benghazi

    Ingraham: Mr. Speaker, Rand Paul asked a question about funneling perhaps arms from Turkey through that CIA Annex to be shipped ultimately to Syrian rebels. Hillary Clinton – there was about four or five beats before she answered the question. Do you know anything about this and have you been briefed on any possibilities…?

    Boehner: I’m somewhat familiar with the chatter about this and the fact that these arms were moving toward Turkey but most of what I know about this came from a classified source and really can’t elaborate on it.

    The CIA Annex was close to the consulate.

    The U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence nominated General David Petraeus to be director of the CIA. He was Director briefly but resigned Friday and admitted to having an extramarital affair. (Washington Post November 9, 2012) The Bengah attack was 9/11/2012…. HMMMMmmmmm David Petraeus is a long time member of Bilderburg and was just at the meeting in Germany.

    Also of note is Saudi Arabia is building a Wall and refuses to take ‘Refugees’

    • Thanks for the write up of some of our history. I have seen most of that before and agree with you that the “man in the street” being sold out started long, long ago.

      I have tried to explain some of what you mentioned in your comment to “regular folks” and they look at you like you just claimed lizard people on the dark side of the moon controlled mankind via mind control. I think we need to form a coalition of freedom seekers and toss out the entrenched rulers first. Then we need a lot of historical revisionism as in the kind Rothbard was fond of: correcting the record in other words.

      At first we need, I think, to lead the “conservatives” toward the libertarian way of thinking — but we foremost need them to hate the state. Anything that promotes the hatred of the present order will help us.

      • WOW you are fast. The other comment is below. I though it would also get booted. Sorry Mark.

        By-the-by, If you are part of the Galts Gulch Group can you gently give them a boot and wake them up. If we do not elect Trump the Globalist Elite will win and we can kiss our freedom good by.

        Remember Obummer signed the UN small Arms Treaty. If TPP is signed into law and Clinton gets to shove globalist Judges onto the Supreme Court, we can kiss our first and second Amendments good bye.
        ………………

        The Supreme Court has already ruled police do not have a duty to protect, so the discussions of murder and crime and guns are nothing but straw-men used to conceal the truth.

        More importantly, what started the American revolution was not Taxation without Representation but a tyrannical government that banned and tried to seized the colonists weapons and gunpowder. The Second Amendment was ALWAYS about the right to bear arms in defense against a tyrannical government. The philosophy underlying our US Constitution is the state exists to protect the rights of the individual. The more common philosophy is the individual exists to serve the state. Who is ‘the state’? They are our owners, and the owners are not a nameless, faceless government; it’s other people. A King, a dictator, an oligarchy all with their armies of bureaucrats.

        As Thomas Jefferson put it, “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” Governments have no fear of an unarmed people.

        George Mason, the co-author of the 2nd Amendment during the Virginia Convention to ratify the Constitution, 1788 made it clear what the militia is.
        ” I ask Sir. what is a militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effective way to enslave them”.

        Recent history proves this true.
        In 1911 Turkey put in place Gun control and from 1915 to 1917 – 1.5 million Arminans were killed.
        In China gun control was put in place in 1935, from 1948 to 1952 – 20 million were killed
        In 1938 Germany put in place Gun control after a False Flag. The Nazis then killed 20,946,000 people.
        Guatemala Gun Control went in in1964 and from 1964 to 1981 100,000 Mayan Indians rounded up and killed.
        Uganda gun control went in in 1970. From 1971 to 1979 – 300,000Christians killed, the total was 2 to 3 million murdered.
        Cambodia passed gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977 1 to 2 million well educated people were murdered.

        “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.” — Adolf Hitler.

        So the question becomes what hidden plans does America’s Ruling Elite have for us that would provoke armed resistance. Because this is the only reasonable explanation for the idiotic focus on political correctness, disarming the population and KNOWINGLY importing terrorists.

        • BREAKING NEWS!!!
          Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

          Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

          Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

          The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.

          Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

          One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

          Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.

          During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

          Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

          Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

          Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

          Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large. — April 20, 1775.
          ….

          It is interesting that the Department of Defense Document obtained by Judicial Watch entitled: AFSS 0910 EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AND TREATMENT INCIDENTS (EOTI) LESSON PLAN
          has this:

          D. Extremist Ideologies
          1. Introduction
          • As noted, an ideology is a set of political beliefs about the nature of people and society. People who are committed to an ideology seek not only to persuade but to recruit others to their belief. In U.S. history, there are many examples of extremist ideologies and movements. The colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule and the Confederate states who sought to secede from the Northern states are just two examples.

          • While not all ideologists are violent in nature, it is characteristic of ideology to be action-oriented and to regard action in terms of a military analogy. How often have you heard words such as struggle, resist, march, victory, and overcome when reading about or talking to ideologists about their beliefs?

          2. Ideologies
          a. Nationalism – The policy of asserting that the interests of one’s own nation are separate from the interests of other nations or the common interest of all nations. Many nationalist groups take it a step further and believe that their national culture and interests are superior to any other national group.

          b. Supremacy – The belief that one’s race or ethnicity is superior to all others and should dominate society. Supremacy, as with racial supremacies in general, has frequently resulted in anti-Black and anti-Semitic violence.

          c. Separatism – Setting oneself or others apart based on culture, ethnicity, race, or religion.

          Is this the United Nations or is it the US military?

        • I am not fast. I just got home from a birthday luncheon for my brother and started checking on the blog. So, it just looked fast to you. 🙂

          As to your comment; I totally agree on the Clinton issue as well as the rest. We need to elect Trump or we are in deep, deep shit.

          I have said often that we are already in a dystopian tyranny. It is only getting worse. I have been working with twitter night and day to spread the word and with restarting writing here.

          Walter Block is working with “Libertarians for Trump” and most of the Anarcho-Capitalists are on board with Trump since the Libertarian Party is not libertarian and they have no chance of winning anyway. We agree that Clinton is pure evil.

          We all need to do what we can. My brother just relayed the story of being attacked by a high naked man (black dude not that it matters) at a gas station near where I live. The guy was high on “bath salts” and they seem to always take off their clothes on that crap for some reason. Brother pulled a gun on the dude and it did not phase the guy a bit. (Brother put gun away as he was not ready to kill the man)

          Why the story? The god damn drug war caused that. When brother and I were living here in 60s and 70s we did drugs and those drugs were weak and mild compared to today’s stuff. The drug war as ramped up the strength and power of today’s drugs. Just more reason to take down the state.

  2. I stole this but it explains one of the problems with the USA and EU current high rate of immigration:

    “The only reason to have immigration is because you need more people to work at building your country: however if those you bring in do not have the same values that exist in that country then the form of government MUST change to accommodate them if they become a large percentage of that country.

    This principle was explained by a French philosopher Montesquieu in his 1748 book Spirit of the laws. The only way to prevent this is to only bring in emigrants at a rate that allows them in assimilate into the existing culture. The EU and America are allowing them in at a rate faster then they can be assimilated which is what the political class wants for that allows them to change the form of government.”

    The second point is many of the refugees and illegals are useless and instead of society getting ‘Added Value’ the entire social structure and tax base is strained.
    My Grandparents were immigrants. My Father’s mother lost her husband in WWI and raised five kids by herself in Harlem NY AND put every single one of them through college. My Great grandmother on Mom’s side was abandoned by her husband and yet my grandmother became a Latin teacher. All of my cousins have been sucessful and my brother is a multi-millionaire. (I am the ‘poor’ black sheep of the clan in comparison.)

    Compare that ‘Added Value’ to Obummer’s Aunt:

    • I think Walter Williams hit it on the head with this essay:

      Multiculturalism: A Failed Concept

      The key to being happy, prosperous, and relatively safe is with relationships. First is the family and then comes the society around you. Your nation is not the nation-state or government — your nation is your people and the worldview of your people.

      If we import illegals who hate our families, our worldview, our religion, our ways of doing things, and our people then they are not here to be assimilated. They must be removed. Better to never let them come here.

  3. Gail,

    Besides all you have written (here and elsewhere) and all that I have written; I think it all comes down to convincing the vast majority of the people that the right-wing vision is the best for the most people. The left-wing vision sound great but leads to horrible outcomes.

    All the leftists I know sum up the right as the well off saying: “screw you, I got mine!”

    This myth; this propaganda; this delusion must be attacked at its core somehow.

    • Mark,

      I sum up the Left as “Screw you, I WANT YOURS and I am going to throw a tantrum until the government takes it away from you and gives it to ME… WAAAAaaaaa” —-

    • Now that I have vented my distain for the Left mindset. I will address the issue.

      I think the best answer is exactly WHAT the elites vision is for us humans in the Great Unwashed catagory. And that vision is a system of serfs/slaves.

      George Bernard Shaw, the Fabian Society Co-founder put it very bluntly:

      KILLING THOSE “UNFIT TO LIVE”
      “The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way. Is it any wonder that some of us are driven to prescribe the lethal chamber as the solution for the hard cases which are at present made the excuse for dragging all the other cases down to their level, and the only solution that will create a sense of full social responsibility in modern populations?”

      Source: George Bernard Shaw, Prefaces (London: Constable and Co., 1934), p. 296.

      “Under Socialism, you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner; but whilst you were permitted to live, you would have to live well.”

      George Bernard Shaw: The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism, 1928, pg. 470

      Sure sounds like the way a farmer treats his livestock. Rosa Koire, a ‘flaming liberal’ – her description – outlines what her research shows as the present vision of the future:
      http://www.postsustainabilityinstitute.org/the-post-sustainable-future.html

      We are seeing that mindset today.

      A few weeks ago on the 2016 Bilderberg agenda was THE PRECARIAT

      This year’s agenda includes predictable topics like “China,” “migration,” and “cyber security.” But one talking point is particularly intriguing, addressing the “precariat and middle class.”

      The what? The “precariat” is a term popularized by British economist Guy Standing, describing a growing class of people who feel insecure in their jobs, communities, and life in general. They are…

      …the perpetual part-timers, the minimum-wagers, the temporary foreign workers, the grey-market domestics paid in cash… the techno-impoverished whose piecemeal work has no office and no end, the seniors who struggle with dwindling benefits, the indigenous people who are kept outside, the single mothers without support, the cash labourers who have no savings, the generation for whom a pension and a retirement is neither available nor desired…. [They used to call them the Useless eaters and the UK hospitals kill them off if they can.]

      This marginalized group—“alienated, anomic, anxious, and angry,” according to Standing—is fueling the rise of populist politicians like Donald Trump in the US and similar rabble rousers in Europe and beyond. (Discussing this group alongside the middle class, which isn’t doing great either, is telling.) The resulting turmoil in politics, markets, and economics is a factor in nearly all of the Bilderberg meeting’s other agenda items….
      http://qz.com/701543/bilderberg-meeting-dresden-precariat/

      This is from the magazine of the Council on Foreign Relations as of yesterday It’s Time for the Elite to Rise up Against the Ignorant Masses — Trump 2016 and Brexit “The Brexit has laid bare the political schism of our time. It’s not about the left vs. the right; it’s about the sane vs. the mindlessly angry.”

      ………………….

      So now we know what the elite have planned for us. It looks like the kid gloves are comming off and they will FORCE world wide tyrany down our throats if they can. If we are very unlucky Soros and his buddies will pull the plug on the economy in the EU and in the USA (We are up to our eyeballs in debt with little wealth creation) and the USA will suddenly look like Venezuela.

      One in seven Americans depend on food stamps. In 2012, an average of 41.6% of African Americans received benefits each month. About 18% of Asians or Pacific Islanders and 13% of whites received benefits each month. Thirty-six percent of Hispanics of any race received government assistance. The total cost? $152.8 billion annually.

      The real problem? Nearly three-quarters of them are working, and simply can’t bring in enough income to make ends meet. At the Maine Trump Rally today it was mentioned that Governor LePage has a welfare to work program. He found very very few people are lazy and do not want to work. The problem is NO JOBS! THIS is Trump’s target and it is why he has a large following of blue collar and middle class people. People want to work and they want decent well paid jobs — NOT HANDOUTS!

      If as I calculated 50% or more of the adults in the USA produce wealth that is taxed and that wealth is given to those on welfare or holding government type jobs, then we are supporting a second family that contributes NOTHING and only cripples us via regulations and destruction of our cities by idle hands. Unfortunately with more and more people employed as store clerks and burger flippers, the two largest categories after government and temp. work, the USA is not even producing real wealth anymore!

      Fiat currency not backed by wealth production is a ponzi scheme that could collapse at any time if the world elite decide to pull the plug.

  4. Perhaps the simplest way to get the attention of the Left is to switch the battlefield.

    Let’s forget the Conservative vs Socialist strawmen and instead look at the two basic philosophies of governance. All types of governments can be put into one of two simple categories and thereby clear up the fog used to manipulate us.

    The philosophy underlying our US Constitution is the state exists to protect the rights of the individual. The other, more common philosophy, is the individual exists to serve the state.

    Who is ‘the state’? They are our owners, and these owners are not a nameless, faceless government; it’s other people. Unfortunately the predators and parasites within the USA are working very hard to convert the country back into the system they prefer, that of master (them) and slave (us). This is why Benjamin Franklin emerging from Independence Hall at the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia replied to a question, “A republic, madam – if you can keep it.”

    In the more common philosophy, the individual exists to serve the state. All individuals except for the king, emperor, pharaoh or whatever are serfs/slaves of the state. Since the ‘state’ is actually the collection of people consisting of the ruler and his supporters, that means the aristocracy/elite are the actual owners of the country and the people within it. This is the point Marxists always gloss over when spouting Marxism.It is why Marxism has NO PROPERTY RIGHTS. Citizens in countries where the ideology is the individual exists to serve the state have no rights only privileges that can be removed at any time by whim of the elite and that includes the right to live as the 20th century death by government — 262,000,000 people — graphically shows.

    A second key point is only the aristocracy/elite and their bodyguards are allowed to have weapons when the citizens are slaves of the state. This is the underlying reason behind the Second Amendment. It was put in place to prevent tyranny. If you can not own weapons you are at the mercy of the state. Your ‘rights’ become ‘privileges’ that can be remove with little effort and therefore you are a defacto serf/slave. This means gun crimes, gun deaths and all the rest of the excuses for ‘gun control’ floated by the totalitarian enablers are nothing but a false narrative to convince citizens to disarm themselves so they become serfs of the state. An armed citizenry threatens the totalitarian nature of the Elitists plans for us. An armed citizenry would have the wherewithal to rebel; to protect itself from tyrants, despots, and elitist oligarchs who would impose a system of government not based on individuality and freedom but on slavery. This is the reason why those who would enslave us target our right to bear arms and our rights of free speech and assembly.

  5. Mark,

    Saw your comments over at Conservativetreehouse and I do agree. Donald Trump got in front of an already forming movement. Being a very smart man, he waited (and gathered intell) until the time was right and people were really hurting.

    Not only Pat but Ross Parot and Ron Paul also tried to get in front of the crowd, however circumstances were against them. Not enough people were on the internet. Not enough people had figured out who our real enemies are and most important, both Ross and Ron were threatened. One of the people at the Ttreehouse worked with Parot and said his family was threaten. Dan Estulin reported at the Bilderburg conference (2006?) there was assasination of Paul discussed and a year later a week after the June Bilderburg conference Paul suddenly dropped out despite promising to go to November just a couple weeks before. Now we find his son is all on board the Trans-Pacific Partnership which moves control of the USA to an outside triad.

    I consider Rand Paul a major traitor to the USA.

    From the TPP Synopsis FROM THE US GOVERNMENT

    DISPUTE SETTLEMENT
    ” ….TPP Parties aim to have these disputes resolved through impartial, unbiased panels. … Panels will consider requests from non-governmental entities located in the territory of any disputing Party to provide written views regarding the dispute to panels during dispute settlement proceedings.

    Panels will be composed of three international trade and subject matter experts independent of the disputing Parties, with procedures available to ensure that a panel can be composed even if a Party fails to appoint a panelist within a set period of time. These panelists will be subject to a code of conduct to ensure the integrity of the dispute settlement mechanism.

    To maximize compliance, the Dispute Settlement chapter allows for the use of trade retaliation (e.g., suspension of benefits), if a Party found not to have complied with its obligations fails to bring itself into compliance with its obligations. Before use of trade retaliation, a Party found in violation can negotiate or arbitrate a reasonable period of time in which to remedy the breach….”

    ………………………..

    The Groniad says this about the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement:
    ” Leading arbitration lawyer, George Kahale (chairman of Curtis, Mallet-Provost, Colt & Mosie LLP, an international law firm) says there are critical loopholes in the Trans-Pacific Partnership’s investment chapter that leave Australia wide open:

    “….an MFN clause is tantamount to a classic wipeout move. It would enable foreign corporations from TPP states to make a claim against Australia based on the ISDS provisions in any other trade deal Australia has signed, no matter which country it was signed with. That means it does not matter how carefully the TPP is drafted: foreign investors can cherrypick another treaty Australia has signed, and sue the Australian government based on the provisions included in that treaty…..”
    (WWWDOT)theguardian.com/business/2015/nov/10/tpps-clauses-that-let-australia-be-sued-are-weapons-of-legal-destruction-says-lawyer

    From The Hill by former Bill Clinton advisor Dick Morris

    The TPP, generally supported by pro-free-trade Republicans but opposed by labor-union Democrats, reportedly contains a barely noticed provision that allows for the free migration of labor among the signatory nations. Patterned after similar provisions in the treaties establishing the European Union, it would override national immigration restrictions in the name of facilitating the free flow of labor.

    The draft treaty, now under discussion among 12 Pacific Rim nations, including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Vietnam and Japan, makes provision for needed labor to move across national boundaries without restraint. While much of the commentary on the deal has been focused on high-skill, white-collar migration, it could easily be interpreted as allowing farm workers and others to flow back and forth without legal regulation…..

    Curtis Ellis, executive director of the American Jobs Alliance, calls the trade deal “a Trojan horse for Obama’s immigration agenda” on The Hill’s Contributor’s blog. He notes that “one corporate trade association says bluntly that ‘The TPP should remove restrictions on nationality or residency requirements for the selection of personnel.’ ” thehill(DOT)com/opinion/dick-morris/239633-dick-morris-tpp-mass-immigration

    So here it is in the summary about Immigration, AND the adding of other countries without the approval of Congress. (This is what Trump was talking about when he mentioned China and Rand paul ridiculed him.)

    …. The TPP facilitates the development of production and supply chains, and seamless trade, enhancing efficiency and supporting our goal of creating and supporting jobs, raising living standards, enhancing conservation efforts, and facilitating cross-border integration, as well as opening domestic markets.

    Platform for regional integration. The TPP is intended as a platform for regional economic integration and designed to include additional economies across the Asia-Pacific region.

    CROSS-BORDER TRADE IN SERVICES
    Given the growing importance of services trade to TPP Parties, the 12 countries share an interest in liberalized trade in this area….market access, which provides that no TPP country may impose quantitative restrictions on the supply of services (e.g., a limit on the number of suppliers or number of transactions) ….TPP Parties accept these obligations on a “negative-list basis,” meaning that their markets are fully open to services suppliers from TPP countries….TPP Parties agree to permit free transfer of funds related to the cross-border supply of a service. In addition, the chapter includes a professional services annex encouraging cooperative work on licensing recognition and other regulatory issues, and an annex on express delivery services.

    TEMPORARY ENTRY FOR BUSINESS PERSONS
    The Temporary Entry for Business Persons chapter encourages authorities of TPP Parties to provide information on applications for temporary entry, to ensure that application fees are reasonable, and to make decisions on applications and inform applicants of decisions as quickly as possible. TPP Parties agree to ensure that information on requirements for temporary entry are readily available to the public, including by publishing information promptly and online if possible, and providing explanatory materials. The Parties agree to ongoing cooperation on temporary entry issues such as visa processing. Almost all TPP Parties have made commitments on access for each other’s business persons, which are in country-specific annexes.

    How about letting China make our Army equipment and North Korea our government Computers!

    GOVERNMENT PROCUREMENT
    TPP Parties share an interest in accessing each other’s large government procurement markets through transparent, predictable, and non-discriminatory rules….

    And what about our government services like the Post Office, drivers license bureau… Can’t leave those out.

    …In addition to updating traditional approaches to issues covered by previous free trade agreements (FTAs), the TPP incorporates new and emerging trade issues and cross-cutting issues. These include issues related to the Internet and the digital economy, the participation of state-owned enterprises in international trade and investment…

    ……………….
    And GoreBull Warbling…
    ENVIRONMENT

    As home to a significant portion of the world’s people, wildlife, plants and marine species, TPP Parties share a strong commitment to protecting and conserving the environment, including by working together to address environmental challenges, such as pollution, illegal wildlife trafficking, illegal logging, illegal fishing, and protection of the marine environment….
    They reaffirm their commitment to implement the multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) they have joined. The Parties commit to provide transparency in environmental decision-making, implementation and enforcement….. Finally, the Parties commit to cooperate to address matters of joint or common interest, including in the areas of conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, and transition to low-emissions and resilient economies.

    …………………….

    ARRRGHhhh!!!!

    • We are in agreement on almost all things. I just don’t have time to comment much due to the holiday. (Wife’s birthday is the 4th)

      I will say that every group of young folks who get behind a populist (like Trump) think they invented hatred of the ruling bastards in DC. Does no one read history anymore? (I mean on their own and not the crap taught in schools)

  6. I really wish I could post again over at the Treehouse but I think my comments do not go into moderation. Instead I think they now get tossed into trash.

    • Gail,
      My recommendation is to use a Pseudonym. I would pick a name you like, say Rebeca Morton, and then get a gmail account to go with it. Try a few short “rah, rah” posts at some of the places you have had trouble with and see if that passes.

      If all goes well at first, then post a few comments with you true feelings but keep them sorter than you normally do. I have found that at WUWT.com and a few other places that the really long comments get moderated or just disappear much more than shorter comments. This could be my imagination but that is what I have observed.

      • Mark,

        That is why I tried that different name and different, Windstream(dot)net address here that got tossed directly to trash. We had even shut down the computers and router for 48 hours as E. M. Smith suggested so we would get a different IP address before I tried it.

        I think I have to wipe something in my computer that dumps my gmail address automatically into the comment box since changing it to the Windstream(dot)net address did not work.

        It is my IP address that has been banned BTW and not just my e-mail address.

        And yes it is long posts that get me into trouble.

        I started doing long well referenced posts after __Jim at WUWT targeted me all the time and called me crazy. He even followed me over to SteveGoddard’s until I caught him contradicting himself just so he could bash me. I pointed that out and Tony Heller I think banned him.

        __Jim let slip at WUWT once that he was a computer consultant who worked for the banks. He did not like my taking pot shots at the Fractional Reserve Bankster Fraud or Agenda 21. I figure if I had my own personal Troll following me around the internet, I must be over the target. At least after several years I finally woke up the crowd at WUWT to the broader issues.
