Post Orlando Gun Hysteria

In the little over a week since the event at an Orlando nightclub for sexual deviants, there has been a renewed pushed for Federal gun control. Head of the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, has recently stated that gun control is now part of “homeland security”. Not according to the Founders, who desired a well-armed populace to serve as a citizen militia.

Hillary Clinton has spoken out against citizens owning “weapons of war”. Donald Trump initially commented that people secretly and arbitrarily placed on the so-called Federal terror watch list should not be allowed to buy guns, but the NRA (which has millions of members and formally endorsed his presidential bid last month) apparently convinced him to back off from that position to their own. Faux News has expressed outrage over Mateen’s ability to buy a Sig Sauer MCX, which is  basically  a gas piston driven variation of the AR-15 design.

One of the most bizarre antigun columns that I came across was Gresh Kuntzman’s June 15th online New York Daily news article titled What is it like to fire an AR-15? It’s horrifying, menacing and very very loud. Apparently, this Jew boy went to a gun range that would talk gun control and let him fire an AR-15. This was just a tad to manly for him, as poor little Gresh reported that the AR-15 “felt to me like a bazooka”, “bruised my shoulder”, “disoriented me”, “made me sick”, and “gave me a temporary form of PTSD”. He seriously wrote that about himself on a major mainstream news site!

Now that you are done laughing, let me take apart those ridiculous claims of poor little Kuntzman. The M16, the selective fire parent of the semi-auto AR-15, was designed to fire 5.56mm NATO ammunition, which is almost identical to the civilian .223 Remington cartridge.

The .223 is popular for varmint hunting, and is rarely used on deer. I have personally fired multiple AR variants over the years. The AR-15 has much less recoil than a 12 gauge shotgun, which is found in almost every house in rural America

The AR-15 and its .223 cartridge is more powerful than a pistol, but noticeably less powerful (and lower recoiling) than WWII era military rifles and most common deer hunting rifles. The AR was designed to be, and is known to be, a very light recoiling rifle; this was to give an infantrymen with a select fire M16 reasonable control on the full auto setting. I will not waste space here commenting on his bizarre and effeminate claims of sickness, disorientation, and PTSD.

I was a little surprised that Kuntzman would post such a degrading, effeminate article about himself on the website of a major newspaper -or anywhere else for that matter. I briefly wondered if he could have made up the bizarre claims in his article to scare people who are unfamiliar with guns, but that would still leave him looking ridiculous to anyone reasonably informed.

Perhaps Kuntzman is that weak, effeminate, and psychologically delicate that firing the little AR-15 did disturb him. Maybe most men, or at least most urban men, have degraded to the point that they think more like women than men.

Kuntzman’s reaction to the little AR was rather humorous, and an insight into the effeminate, urbanized mindset of those who would trash our Constitution. Maybe men who think like Kuntzman should all go live in NYC, or better yet, Tel Aviv. America would not miss them.

Thoughts on the 12th Protocol

Sergei Nilus published a book in Russia in the early 1900s titled Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. It purported to be an outline of the secret plans of the leaders of International Jewry. It was translated into English by a British journalist, Victor Marsden. It is a 24 point outline of the plan for Jewish domination of the world.

Some thought it genuine; others thought it was a hoax, perhaps written by officials of the Czar. A third option is that it was a brilliant allegory written by a gentile man who had studied Jewish subversion and wished to anonymously warn his countrymen in an intellectually stimulating way. I take the third option.

This book is diabolically brilliant, and hauntingly real when on realizes how much of it has come to pass in the century since it was written. I wish to focus on one part of the 12th protocol.

Under the headline “Free Press Destroyed”, Protocol 12 point 7 reads in part:

“We turn to the periodical press. We shall impose on it, as on all printed matter, stamp taxes per sheet and deposits of caution-money, and books of less than 30 sheets will pay double. We shall reckon them as pamphlets in order, on the one hand, to reduce the number of magazines, which are the worst form of printed poison, and, on the other hand, in order that this measure may force writers into such lengthy productions that they will be little read, especially as they will be costly. At the same time what we publish ourselves to influence mental development in the direction laid down for our profit will be cheap and will be read voraciously”. 

Regardless of whom one believes wrote the Protocols, this passage is depressingly accurate when it comes to human psychology. Let us consider it.

The author of the Protocols knew that most men do not read large books, regardless of the subject matter. That is why short works -such as small books, magazines, and pamphlets- are called “the worst form of printed poison”. Small books have the potential to reach a much wider audience than scholarly works three or four times their size.

In present day America, most people read very little. Most working class people in America do not read 400 page non-fiction books, regardless of the subject or quality or writing. This is sad, but it is reality.

Politically controversial material is basically impossible to publish through the large (Jewish controlled) publishers, many of which are in New York City. Thankfully, there currently are some digital-print-on-demand companies for self-published authors like myself (CreateSpace, Lulu, NookPress, etc.)

Most people are not even reading books of any size. Even print newspapers are going down in circulation. People now use TV and the internet for their news. The TV news is absolute garbage, regardless of channel. The internet offers everything from garbage to wonderful hard core patriot material. I am afraid that many people, even patriot inclined people, are more inclined to watch a YouTube video than read a commentary article.

The 12th Protocol is why I published my short (106) page book Putnam Liberty Notes in March of 2016, and priced it at $5 (less than an hour’s wage for a high school age fast food restaurant worker). The 12th Protocol is why I am writing this series of brief (roughly 2 page in 6×9 inch format) articles, and posting them online for people to read for free. I am publishing brief and inexpensive material, just like the Protocols feared.

June 2016 News Roundup

As a change of pace, I decided that I would do a post on the major news stories of the last few weeks. As I covered the FBI’s warrantless browser search power grab in the last article, I will not recover it here.

Recently, the media has been obsessed with the mass shooting at the gay nightclub “Pulse” in Orlando, Florida. It appears that 29 year old Omar Mateen, a U.S. born son of a Afghani immigrant parents, shot up a well-known nightclub for gays/sexual perverts. It is the largest mass shooting in American history, killing 49 and wounding more than 50. Mateen was killed by police. Mateen, a Muslim, alledgedly placed a 911 call during the shooting, where he allegedly pledged allegiance to ISIS.

Donald Trump and Fox News are making a big deal out of Obama calling this an act of hate and terror, not an act of radical Islamic terrorism.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has already used this as an excuse to advocate for gun control, stating “that weapons of war have no place on our streets”.

Correction, Ms. Rodham. First, the AR-15 type rifle is not a weapon of war; it is a semi-auto variation of one. Second, the 2nd amendment guarantees the right of Americans to own the “weapons of war” for the defense of their life, liberty, or property -including militia service. Third, the emotional phrase “on our streets” that she used implies gang or criminal activity, not responsible citizen gun owners.

There has been outrage displayed on Faux News that a man who had been investigated (and cleared) by the FBI for potential ties to terrorism was allowed to buy a gun. these people do not comprehend, or openly despise, the Anglo-American concept of innocent until proven guilty and due process of law.

There has been an outcry to prohibit persons on the so-called “terror watch list” from buying firearms. The terror watch list allows someone to be put on it without their knowledge, and without any clear evidence -let alone legal indictment for- any criminal act whatsoever. The terror watch list is a tool for tyranny to us against political dissenters, and is abhorrent to American principles.

If king George would have had a “terror watch list’ in the 1760s and 70s, he would have put the Founding fathers on it. If the Founding Fathers were alive today, they would be on the government’s terror watch list!

Buried in all the hysteria about the Orlando shooting is an event of potentially much more significance. The annual Bilderberg meeting occurred last weekend in Dresden, Germany. The exclusive Bilderberg Group is known to patriots, and is the subject of the book Jim Tucker’s Bilderberg Diary, published by the American Free Press.

The 2016 Bilderberg meeting occurred shortly before the “Brexit” vote, a vote that might remove the UK from the EU! No doubt that was discussed, in addition to financial manipulations and geopolitics.

As Trump and Hillary prepare to square off this fall, the Libertarian Party has nominated its candidates for President and Vice President. They wanted to show how different the Libertarian Party was, so they nominated two former state governors who held their former office under the Republican Party!? Okay, I guess somebody did not get the memo.

It appears that the political situation in America is degrading. The Founders would not be happy with how things are going. It has gone far beyond the point for the elections this fall to fix everything wrong with this country.

The Surveillance State Marches On

Last week it came out that the FBI is seeking to change rules so that it may spy on the computer internet browser record of every American without a warrant. Perhaps the FBI is unaware of the 4th amendment. This story has been eclipsed in the news cycle by the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub early yesterday morning, but I still felt the need to write this essay.

I came across a June 6 online Washington Post article by Ellen Nakashima titled FBI wants access to Internet browser history without a warrant in terrorism and spy cases. Yes, warrantless searches. This is just the next step toward a universal surveillance state.

Author, former judge, and liberty advocate Andrew P. Napolitano wrote a June 9 online article about the new FBI power grab titled Wake Up, America! Napolitano pointed out how blatantly unconstitutional this new power would be, ignoring the 4th amendment.

With 9/11 we got the gratingly misnamed USA Patriot Act forced on us with: roving wiretaps, “sneak and peak” searches, and national security letters.

In 2013, Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the massive metadata collection being done by the NSA. Basically, the NSA was archiving the phone records of everyone in a database and tracking cellphone locations.

The USA Freedom Act of 2015 did not undue all the onerous provisions of the Patriot Act. The Freedom Act (sort-of) banned mass collection of metadata by the government, which is comforting to those who believe that the government obeys it own laws.

A National Security Letter (NSL) is a document issued by one FBI agent to another demanding that a private party turn over documents or information to the government. There is no judge, court, evidence, or 4th amendment with an NSL; it is open tyranny.

Furthermore, NSLs generally come with a “gag” order; this means that the entity handing over documents cannot (under penalty of law) tell anyone -including the object of the search -that it ever occurred. They have been demanding internet records with NSLs for years. There went the 4th and 1st amendments inn one move!

But now the FBI wants this sort of power openly codified in law by Congress! Why bother having Congress give you permission to break the Constitution -something that it may not Constitutionally do? Why are the commissars at the FBI worried about formalities at this late point?

At this point, it is prudent to assume that anything you say or type on your phone or the internet, and every website you visit, is ending up in a database that the government may peruse it at its will.

I have never had  a cellphone. I do have a phone line to my house, but I rarely use it. While I had occasionally used the internet at a friend or relatives, I did not have the internet in my house until four years ago; I got the internet out of my house over a year ago. The essays on this blog were posted using the Wi-Fi from a local restaurant dining room.

At times like this, I contemplate why I am still on the internet. As long as I am researching and posting this blog or publishing books, I will have to use the internet. I am slowly cutting back on my use of the internet. While I may not ever fully “unplug” from all electronic communications, I am not ruling out that possibility. Yes my readers, Big Brother really is watching.

What is Money?

What is money? Money is simply a universally recognized medium of exchange; money is simply the highest level of refinement of the system of barter (trade). Cattle and bushels of grain were inconvenient to carry around everywhere one desired to purchase something; man needed a small item of practical and intrinsic value that was nonperishable, and of easily determined quality and purity. Metals met these requirements perfectly.

While iron and steel are useful for tools and weapons, they are relatively commonplace elements. Iron lacks the beauty and rust resistance desirable for daily use items such as cups, silverware, and items worn close to the body. Coins of iron would quickly rust in humid environments.

Gold, silver, and copper are precious metals that fill the need for scarcity, along with the rust resistance and beauty that man desires for some items. In addition to being too scarce to use for farm implements, gold and silver are too soft to work well for tools; however, modern man has found gold and silver useful in electrical applications.

The universal standard for money has been precious metals for thousands of years. While this metal could be in the form of nuggets, dust, or chunks, it was found that coins were the preferred method of trade. A coin has an easily determined weight, country or mint of origin, and purity. Coins have been the money of the civilized world since the days of ancient Greece.

It must be noted that for a people group to adopt money implies that it is able to produce everything that it needs to survive. Once physical needs are met, money is useful to smooth the trade necessary to procure things that individuals cannot make for themselves. Money is only of value in a state of society.

To clarify this, let us imagine: (1) a man stranded alone on a tropical island, (2) that the remote location of the island makes it unlikely that he will be rescued for months, (3) and that the island is filled with small animals. Our hypothetical man will find much more value in a .22 rifle and 100 rounds of ammo (worth perhaps 10 ounces of silver in society) than he would find in 100 ounces of silver.

In truth, the silver would be of no value to the lone man on the island, unless he could melt it down and form some item he needed. However, when returned to a well provisioned society, the silver coins would once again have great value.

As gold is rarer than silver, it has a higher trade value. Silver is the money of the common man. A common man would only rarely need to employ gold to purchase something. This was understood by Americas’s Founders.

I trust that it is now apparent why money is a precious metal coin of a know weight and purity. Paper money redeemable in absolutely nothing -such as Federal Reserve Notes- is a fraud and a lie. The Coinage Act of 1792 specified that a dollar coin would contain 371.25 grains of silver.

The U.S. Constitution specifies that Congress has the power “To coin Money…” and that no State may “make any Thing but gold or silver Coin a Tender in Payment of debts”. Congress may not legally print paper “money”, and it certainly many not delegate this authority (that it does not have) to a private banking corporation.

The Federal Reserve is not an agency of the United States government; it is a private, for profit banking corporation. If that surprises you, perhaps you should go read Eustace Mullin’s Secrets of the Federal Reserve or Griffin’s The Creature From Jekyll Island. Ron Paul’s End The Fed is also worth reading, but does not give the full story. George Bancroft’s 19th century work A plea for the Constitution of the U.S. of America wounded in the house of its guardians is also worth reading.

Emphasizing Hussein Instead of Barack

Over the weekend I was talking to an acquaintance who is a Vietnam vet and NRA member. Somehow, I think because of the recent highly publicized death of boxer and practicing Muslim Muhammad Ali, Obama was brought up. My acquaintance stated that he thought that Obama, who he referred to as a “Muslim n**ger”, had let the Fort Hood shooter go free because of their Muslim faith. (Note: Nidal Malik Hasan, an ethnic Palestinian, is the man who murdered U.S. soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas in 2009; he was convicted and is sitting in a wheelchair at Fort Leavenworth military prison awaiting execution).

I simply stated that Obama was not a Muslim. He then loudly proclaimed “bullsh*t”! He stated that Obama gave his first interview to the Muslims. I dropped the conversation at this point.

Where do I begin? First, Barack Hussein Obama’s name is not evidence of him being  a Muslim. While people point out that his middle name is Hussein (of Arabic origin), they miss it that his first name is Jewish! The Hebrew and Chaldee dictionary section of my Strong’s Concordance indicates that Barak is pronounced “baw-rack”, just as one pronounces Barack Obama -which is to be expected as Barack is the Old Testament name Barak with the addition of a “c”.

Next, if Obama is a Muslim then why did he do the following: attend Jeremiah Wright’s church for years, be sworn in on a Bible (not a Koran), not fast for Ramadan, eat pork and drink beer, not require his wife or daughters to wear a burka or hijab, host a Passover sedar (supper) at the White House each year, speak before a Jewish congregation, approve massive military and financial by our government to Israel, and fill many of his high level administration appointments with Jews?

Let us look at Obama’s prominent and verifiable connections to Jews, no fantasy connections to Islam. First, and very enlightening, is Tom Hundley’s December 12, 2008 Chicago Tribune online article entitled Barack Obama: The First Jewish President? Hundley, in a mainstream paper, points out that “it is clear that his political career, from its South Side inception to the audacious run for the White House, was nurtured and enabled by a close-knit network of Chicago Jews”.

In his May 22, 2015 speech to the Adas Israel Congregation in Washington, D.C., Obama stated that: Earlier this week, I was actually interviewed by one of your members, Jeff Goldberg. And Jeff reminded me that he once called me ‘the first Jewish president’. Now, since some people still seem to be wondering about my faith -I should make clear this was an honorary title”. 

Obama’s first Chief of staff was Rahn Israel Emanuel. David Axelrod worked on his 2008  campaign before serving as a Senior Adviser in the White House for several years. Jacob Joseph “Jack” Lew is his current Treasury secretary, and Janet Yellen is chair of the Federal Reserve. Obama’s vice chair of the Federal Reserve is Stanley Fischer, a dual citizen of Israel who used to head Israel’s central bank. Obama’s first Secretary of State was John Kerry (Kohn), who is half Jewish (and a member of Skull and Bones). His point girl on the Ukraine debacle was Victoria Nuland. Even his trusted friend and Senior Advisor, Iranian born Valerie Jarrret, is a 1/8 Jewish mulatto. And this is only a partial listing.

If Jews are the archenemy of all Muslims, and women are to be oppressed by Sharia law, why did Obama appoint a Jewish woman -Elena Kagan- to the U.S. Supreme Court?

The vote of people who think Obama is a Muslim counts the same as that of a well-informed patriot. Democracy does have its flaws.

D-Day: Let Us Mourn

Today is the 72nd anniversary of D-Day, one of the saddest days of the 20th century. On June 6, 1944 a massive naval armada lay offshore Normandy, France.

Normandy, named for the Norman tribes that invaded the British Isles a millennium ago, was shelled and invaded by American, British, and French troops -many of them having Norman blood in their veins. D-day began the Battle of Normandy, which ended in late August. The number of those killed or wounded on both sides for the entire two month period may have reached 100,000. Thousands of innocent French civilian non-combatants were also killed in that dark two months.

Why? What quarrel did Americans and Englishmen have with the Germans? None. The Germans did not cross the Atlantic to bomb or invade the United States; we crossed the thousands of miles of ocean to attack them. Average Americans and Germans had no reason to hate or fight each other. Likewise, the American government had no quarrel with the German government. Britain no doubt viewed industrialized Germany as an economic rival, but that is no reason for war.

No my readers, dark forces -alien to both America and Europe- wished for the second World War so that they could make financial profits, decrease the numbers of the white race, and take another step toward their dream the total consolidation of world power.

At D-Day, and through out WWII, weak and physically flawed young men received 4-Fs and did not go to battle, while the healthiest and strongest went -and often died.

Likewise, the most idealistic young men of America, propagandized into believing that they were fighting to restore freedom or somehow defend their country form people who had not attacked it, went and fought -and often died.

American youth were killed or maimed when they threw themselves against the Third Reich -for absolutely no reason. We “liberated” much of Europe from German rule, so that we could turn it over to the nightmarish Soviet Union.

I have not always felt this way. As a teenager, I loved WWII and almost idolized WWII vets. I loved WWII movies, with the 1955 movie To Hell And Back being my favorite. I even had a picture of Audie Murphy on my wall.

To Hell And Back was the story of 1st Lieutenant Audie L. Murphy, the most decorated American soldier of the war. He earned many medals for valor (including the Medal of Honor), and was wounded three times. I remember the climactic scene of To Hell And Back, where Murphy stopped a German unit’s advance by mounting a burning tank and called in artillery strikes while operating it’s .50 caliber Browning machinegun -killing a huge number of German soldiers for no other logical reason than just following his government’s orders to invade Europe. (Murphy, who became a professional actor after the war, portrayed himself in the movie To Hell And Back and also joined the Freemasons and Shriners).

The late Willis A. Carto (1926-2015), a WWII combat vet who received the Purple Heart for wounds received in battle with the Japanese, later realized that the war was unnecessary and spoke out about it, referring to ti as the “suicide of the west”. Most vets cannot face that reality.

Why does America revere the vets of WWII, but pay almost no attention to the memory of the vets of the glorious American Revolution -the morally and philosophically just war that gave birth to our Republic?

Yes, it is D-Day; let us mourn that it occurred.
