There's one thing that negates reason or simple common sense in a mind, the desire to live by the mental and physical work of others.  To have power over people and to specifically have power over those who perform productive thought and labor.  Of course there're no rational grounds for it.  It's the desire by the rulers and those seeking to become rulers to control then use the lives of other people that drove the Human Race into the world wars with other horrors.

I made a proposal:

We in the United States are stuck with two political parties.  The leadership of one party is insane and the leadership of the other party simply doesn't care.  Rank and file members now call establishment members a bunch of Vichy Republicans.

Perhaps its time to start a new political party.  Is a new political party possible?

The answer is: I don’t know.  The opponents of chattel slavery proceeded even with public opposition.  We, as opponents of political power, have to.  We need to treat exercises of political power, such as censorship, as crimes against Humanity.  We need to treat bans on firearms and free speech as the anti-Human acts that they actually are.  Our political elites have apparently forgotten the lesson taught by our original civil war, that banning freedom doesn’t work.  Our political elites tried to ban the voluntary consumption of alcohol, it didn’t work.  Our political elites tried to ban the voluntary consumption of hard drugs, it doesn’t work.  Our political elites will try to ban the voluntary ownership of firearms and freedom of speech, it will never work.  Our politicians are supposed to do a specific job and they aren't doing it.  We have to start a new political party to go around them.  We don't have a choice.

Let's call our new party the Freedom Party.

Will the Freedom Party replace the Democratic Party?

I don't think so.  What's more likely is that the Freedom Party will replace the Republican Party just like the Republicans replaced the Whigs.

Personal History

One of the problems I had with driving a taxi on the night shift is having to go into bars in order to find the person who called for the cab.  I really don't like bars and I really hate drunks.  I one night I had to go into Nye's in Northeast Minneapolis to find the passenger.  She was clearly drunk and once she was in the car she exhibited grossly rude and hostile behavior.  I dumped her out back where I found her.

On this day in 2003 I also issued a warning about Chinese Imperialism.

In 2000, China increased its defense spending to 13 percent of its gross domestic product, followed by another augmentation to 17 percent in 2001. One analyst observed that recent purchases by Chinese generals tend to “emphasize power-projection forces” to apply military power “at a distance.” Though the actual reasons are decreed as protective measures by the Chinese government, some correlation can be drawn to recent maneuvers, such as its claim of 80 percent of the South China Sea, which is against international law, and by its direct colonialism over the Paracel and Spratly Islands, also in possession of Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam. A former Philippines defense minister called this a “creeping invasion” when asked to comment on its possible ramifications. China has also laid claim to the Philippines’ Mischief Reef and has established military installations on four other disputed reefs; moreover, has been a notable increase in Chinese naval traffic around the Philippines’ territories that makes many countries “uneasy that China may want to resume the imperial status it had in earlier centuries,” according former Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew.
Furthermore, the Japanese government has reported that Chinese military vessels sail into Japanese waters approximately 20 times per year. This has prompted the Japanese Defense Ministry to begin a massive project for mapping its coastal seafloor to observe China’s growing fleet of submarines. This is not to mention that Japan moves 70 percent of its crude oil and fishing through the South China Sea, of which China has called for the “immediate eviction of foreign military vessels or vessels owned by foreign governments and used for noncommercial purposes that violate the laws and regulations” of China.
My comments:

1. The United States should recognize the fact that peace has never been brought about or extended through any arms control process.  The United States should repudiate all treaties that limit Nuclear and Conventional forces and amend the Constitution to prohibit such agreements in the future.

2. The United States should arrest, prosecute, and where possible execute all persons responsible for the transfer of military technology to the PRC.  This includes BOTH Clintons.

3. The United States should outlaw trade with the PRC and all other totalitarian socialist states.

4. The United States should be prepared to militarily crush the PRC, and if necessary erase it from the face of the Earth.

One of the points that Ayn Rand made when she wrote Atlas Shrugged was that when a threat is made against one's job it's in effect a threat against one's life.  The parasite can't live in a society where social and economic relationships are based on consent.  Liberty IS death to them.  The parasite needs to compel the productive to support them, for them power is life.  So when someone knocks off a dictatorship and hangs the dictator they're bound to respond as if they're to be the next victim.

A theory I hold is that some people stay in Scientology because they don't want to admit that they've been conned.  The thing is that L. Ron Hubbard was a master con artist.  Hubbard actually conned a rocket scientist.  L. Ron Hubbard may have been a lousy writer.  That same time Hubbard was complaining about receiving a penny a word for writing for the pulps, Ayn Rand was routinely published in hardcover and living in a single family home in the Los Angeles area.  All of Rand's fiction remains in print.

A corollary of Murphy's Law should be if a Californian can do something wrong he or she will. 

How many illiterates were murdered by Fidel Castro to achieve universal literacy? 

In a screenplay I once had a character state that a person isn’t left behind.  A lot of people have been left behind during the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.  Joe Biden has apparently replaced Charles Schumer as the poster child for congressional term limits.  Joe Biden sucks.

On Censorship

What is Censorship?  

Censorship is the forcible prevention of the transmission of information.  In the context of an adversarial situation, such as the invasion of a Free Nation by a Socialist State, the act of censorship is morally mandatory.  Such an invader has no more right to information about the defending forces than a biker gang has to the location of your wife or daughters.  In the context of a civil society, valid information concerning those holding or seeking public office and their goals and beliefs is necessary in order for members of the electorate to make a valid decision when they exercise their authority.  To vote correctly, the voter needs to know the truth about office seekers and their beliefs and personal conduct.  Those who must suppress the transmission of valid information, such as corrupt office holders who’re acting through their lieutenants, or through the local campus communist goon squad, are harmful to the individual citizens and the political community as a whole.  Those who attempt to practice censorship in a civil society are enemies of that society and must be identified and dealt with as such.

On Racial Collectivism

I've been called a racist online by a Progressive without mind to the actual facts of reality.  Any person that insists on believing absurdities WILL commit atrocities.  As a rule Progressives see the subjects of their whim as mindless morons.  When their victims speak up the Progressives don't respond rationally but are the first to actively silence the voice of dissent.  Hypocrisy is the pretense of governing in the name of The People while ruling in ignorance of their actual will.  In other words Totalitarianism as usual.  While on a morning walk I saw two yard signs for Black Lives Matter on 29th Avenue here in Northeast Minneapolis.  Because I oppose racial collectivism I will be denounced as a racist.  Of all ideologies Racial Collectivism stands with the ugliest and most irrational of doctrines.  It denies the minds and rights of all individuals and reduces all people to mere things.  The content of character and the moral choices made by a person mean nothing.  The race of person, something completely outside of choice, is all that matters to the Racial Collectivist.  In this case the Blacks are raised to the status of a Master Race and Whites are condemned to inferior status and death.

We've seen this before.

The Racial Collectivist mentally raises himself to a separate and superior status over Humans in general.  To him the Rights of Man are rendered meaningless and he may rob and murder people at will and an with a posture of righteousness.  We are deemed to be things that are used and disposed of, and for them murder isn't a wrong but a moral duty.  In the original version of National Socialism the Aryan peoples were identified as the Master Race, or the Herrenvolk.  In fact a Racial Collectivist is an Enemy of Mankind in General.  In a more rational day Enemies of Mankind were hunted down and killed.  Let's return to reason.  The idea that Black men should be exempt from the laws that protect the life and property of all people regardless of their race is clearly wrong.  As far as a properly functioning government is concerned there is only one race: The Human Race.  Anti-fa and Black Lives Matter are being used by the elites, but they don't know it.  The members of  Anti-fa and Black Lives Matter need to be treated as the Enemies of Humanity they actually are.

The self styled Progressives have only ever had one idea, which their ancestors came up with during the Stone Age, that's to live as predatory animals, with taking the products of thought and labor of others by force.  All of their subsequent thoughts have only been excuses for this behavior.  If anything, the time I was delivering pizza for a living has caused my previous loathing of The Left to become deeper and more visceral.  After all, why should any Leftist go through the effort of doing something that's objectively positive, such as tipping the delivery driver, when they can merely strike a pose and feel good about themselves afterwards?  As with their Aryan precursors, African Racial Collective has developed a cultural contempt for The Other.  Those who aren't identified as members of the collective are deemed to be nonhuman as thus subject to attack.  The Other, the Non-Africans, are simply attacked for the thrill of it with no material gains to be had.  Non-Africans are hunted and assaulted as if they're members of a non-sentient game species.  Given the African Racial Collective has begun to adopt National Socialist behavior it comes to no surprise that some of them are identified and treated as such.  Some victims have responded with deadly force and have wounded or killed some perpetrators.

Question And Answer

A Leftist twit posted this question online:


A law is a standing order to the apparatus of the state to carry out acts of force to specific persons under specific circumstances.  In a civilized society the legal code directs the government to protect the rights (such as Life, Liberty, and Property) of the citizens and legal residents of a nation.  Under barbarism the apparatus of the state is directed to attack and plunder the subject population.  And Islam is barbarism on steroids.  Islam and the mass of contradictions that is claimed to be a system of law was the product of a thoroughly depraved individual.  Sharia is the codification of the nihilistic lust for power and plunder of the false prophet Mohammad whose moral values are essentially that of a predatory animal pretending to be a human being.  I could describe the false prophet Mohammad as a walking piece of excrement but that would be an insult to excrement.

If that doesn’t answer the question, what does?

And thanks to Mark Urbin for calling attention to the aforementioned mind dropping.

An Unpunished Crime

The ATF needs to be treated as the gang of mass murderers it actually is.

We identify The Holocaust as the evil act it actually was.  But we're looking at The Holocaust objectively.  From the subjective viewpoint the perpetrators of The Holocaust believed they were the good people doing good things and that their victims were evil.  We, the advocates of Liberty take the objective position and identify The Waco Massacre as the act of state terror that it actually was.  But the common narrative has taken the subjective point of view and identifies the perpetrators of massacre as the good guys.

 What has happened is a clearly unpunished crime.

 Here's three thousand words why I will never vote for The Democratic Party.


There's a right way to with deal someone like Koresh and it wasn't followed.  An Objectivist has to oppose David Koresh and his followers, but was it necessary to kill them?  No.

April 19, 1993 the event occurred that was commonly known as the Waco Massacre.

What happened?

The local office of the BATF received a report of automatic weapons fire at the residence of Branch Davidians outside of Waco, Texas.  No inquiry was made with the local law enforcement agencies.  Nor did they as allowed under the current regulations send agents out to inspect the federally licensed firearms dealer residing on the site.  And they could've arrested Koresh as he made his morning run but didn't do so.   With his past history of cooperation with local law enforcement they could've simply asked him to come down to the local sheriff’s station.  Instead they attempted to stage a military style assault, code named Operation Showtime, in order to impart a positive impression of the agency upon the current administration in Washington.  Some Federal bureaucrats apparently wanted to feel important.  After the task force was driven off the Hostage Rescue Team of the FBI descended upon the Branch Davidians and laid siege to the residence.

On April 19th the HRT used armored vehicles to destroy the exits from the building and to allow the wind to blow through it and then injected CS gas, known to be inflammable and toxic to children and elderly persons, into the wooden structure.  The HRT fired CS rounds, which are incendiary devices into, the building.  A tactic to commit mass murder used by the SS-Einsatzgruppen in Poland and Russia was to confine civilians, especially women and children, in wooden buildings and set the structures on fire.  To this day the perpetrators remain at large or have been allowed to die in peace.
The U.S. Army rifle platoon I trained with in 1982 could have secured the structure without killing any of the children or the elderly adults.  Yes it was possible that some of us actual soldiers could have been wounded or killed in the action.  But that's part of the hazards of the job. 

The Waco Massacre was a demonstration on the part of Big Bubba of the existence of the means to carry out Marxist style state terror and the existence of the will to use it.
There are some who believe that because I don't believe in God or Jesus Christ I shouldn't object to the Waco Massacre.  But from an objective perspective an act of state terror, like the Waco Massacre, remains an act of state terror.

I reposted on THE NEW RESISTER an article about the Waco Massacre that was originally published on the Libernet Mailing List in 1993.

My Editorial Introduction.

Part One.

Part Two.

Part Three.

Part Four.

Part Five.


We have to understand that a firearm is simply a tool.  A firearm is simply a means to a Human end.  The Human end is freedom, this is the opposition to tyranny.  Tyrants want and need to disarm their victims.  Tyrants need victims.  Victims don’t need tyrants.
Koresh, if he was alive, would clearly be an enemy of an Objectivist.  But someone has to speak for him.  The massacre of the Branch Davidians was a deliberate act of state terror which was carried straight out of the collectivist ruler handbook. The purpose was to demonstrate to all the consequences of disobeying the collectivists who then occupied the White House.  Comrade McVeigh and the current occupant of the White House, Comrade Biden, are firmly seated on the Collectivist side of the aisle.  If we have anything to thank subsequent Republican presidents for it's for doing nothing.  Our so-called president, Joe Biden, wants to appoint a perpetrator of Waco Massacre to head the BATF.
And if you think that attitude and ideology is uniquely Clintonistic I will you disabuse you of that notion:

"Conformity will be the only virtue and any man who refuses to conform will have to pay the penalty."

-- President Woodrow Wilson

Since then the name “Democrat” has become in my mind synonymous with the concept of “murderer.” If there's one complaint I have about President Bush or President Trump it is that they've done nothing to bring the perpetrators of this atrocity to justice.

Nothing. At. All.

We are still waiting for justice.

Here's another six thousand words why I will never vote for The Democratic Party.




I wouldn’t be surprised if our Mainstream Media (who make Paul Joseph Goebbels look honest) blame the Afghanistan mess on Republicans.

Idiotcy In Action

Tentpole properties (Star Trek, Star Wars, and Doctor Who) appear to be failing.

The thoroughly unpleasant fact of reality is that Hollywood (and the Media in general) is run by a bunch of unimaginative twerps, the kind of people that Ayn Rand used to call Second Handers.  It's the kind of mentality that wants to maximize profits but is unwilling to try something distinctly new or different.  Thus the glut of sequels and the ongoing cinemisation of the successful television series.  Even if the project isn't a sequel or a series adaptation, the Second Handers still attempt to reduce risk by only combining elements that appeared to have worked in the past.  Thus "The Adventures of Pluto Nash," a movie that combines the elements of Eddie Murphy, Computer Generated Imagery, and the Sci-Fi environment, still turns out to be an unwatchable piece of crap.  (When I saw the trailer at the 2002 Convergence, my thought was, oh its "Moon Zero Two: The Next Generation.")

Personal History

Scientology appears to be a physical confirmation of the Dunning-Kruger effect.  My first job in the private sector was a part time janitorial gig at two candy shops in Downtown Minneapolis.  Both shops had picture windows and Hubbard’s method of washing windows was NEVER used.

Man is a being of both mind and body.  When our ancestors began to create tools and use them to alter the environment for their own benefit the emphasis of the evolutionary process shifted from the strength of the physical body to the strength of the mind.  Our numbers began to grow as we learned to harness and control natural processes such life cycles of plants and animals.  But some so-called men, whom we should call savages or barbarians, chose a different path.  Instead of harnessing and controlling nature they chose to harness and control other men.  They took the tools that were created to improve human life and used them as instruments of subjugation and destruction.  The first of the barbarians took the spear that was invented to hunt animals for food and used it to murder and enslave other men.  Some of the present day barbarians took some commercial airliners and used them to snuff out thousands of lives as a sacrifice to a false god.  And then they have the bloody nerve to call themselves progressives.

Thoughts Of The Day

Of course we could also ask a question of the caring and compassionate champions of the peasants and livestock, did the thought ever cross whatever passes for your mind that the alternative to a crappy job with crappy wages is NO JOB AND NO WAGES AT ALL?  No.  The thought never does, but the campus Marxoids will continue to strike their feel good poses at the expense of real productive people.  

What we have in the White House is the most ignorant and incompetent individual to have ever held the office of President.  He doesn't understand that Reality is real.  He doesn't understand the nature of human life and human society.  And most importantly he doesn't understand the nature and purpose of government.  And with the apparent belief in his own infallibility he's clearly in the failure mode.  It's not at all surprising that the United States Government is in the failure mode.  

The Elites need us, we don’t need the Elites.

Antisemitism in politics is the practical equivalent of a dead canary in a coal mine, I can't say this often enough.  Antisemitism is a subset of Racial Collectivism.  We (Humanity) have to condemn all forms of Racial Collectivism.  We have to identify Black Lives Matter as the Racial Collectivist group that it actually is.  We have to see that Antisemitism is a symptom of a deeper philosophical problem.  So when someone attacks Jews they're attacking all of us.  Rejection of Racial Collectivism shouldn't be a radical idea.  

I’ve been called a “bigot” numerous times because I didn’t believe in a person’s orthodoxy.

Thoughts Of The Day

Nobody in their right mind would've voted for Joe Biden for the office of President of the United States. Of course if we'd an honest press instead of mob of Paul Joseph Goebbels impersonators we'd safe from the onset of the Social Justice Warrior's reign of terror.  But if we're subject to such a reign please keep in mind that anyone who supports them are mortal enemies and must be identified and dealt with as such. 

The Left passionately hates the Police and the Armed Forces, both of whom have traditionally stood in the path of Holy Marxist Revolution and thus the establishment of the Holy Communist Society where all activities and relationships are dictated by the self-appointed revolutionary saviors and enforced by the compulsory power of the state.  The obvious corollary is The Left appears to have a passionate love for the destroyers of civil society such as violent criminals and organized terrorists.

Reds are inherently parasitic and thus can’t take "no" for an answer to their demands for obedience and the material goods they need to exist.  If they did so they would wither away and die.  A dictator, on the other hand, doesn’t have to take "no" for answer.  Thus Reds are by necessity inclined to favor dictatorships over citizen ruled republics.  When they see a dictator in the dock they see their own hopes and desires go with him. 

What is Communism?

The advocates of Communism are absolutely free to emigrate to any Communist state.  But they don’t do so, because in doing so they become drones.  According to the advocates of the doctrine of Communism they’re not real Communist states.  

What is real Communism?

“Real Communism” is where the advocates of Communism are in charge.

A Message

I have a message for Americans who don’t believe in God.  Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the Democratic Party clearly cheated during the presidential election.  The evidence for cheating is so clear that only a literally blind person couldn’t see it.  The declaration that Joe Biden won by the Mainstream Media is so false that a Soviet or National Socialist propagandist could emit it.  The name of atheism was initially befouled by Karl Marx when he declared his own disbelief.  The name of atheism became fouler still when Madelyn Murray O’Hair supported the Soviet Union during the Cold War.  Issac Asimov had sense enough to say he wasn’t an atheist when he stopped believing.  The name of atheist will continue to be fouled by those who support Biden, Harris, and the Democratic Party, in their effort to gain power over the United States of America.  If a nonbeliever outside of the Objectivist camp finds themselves in a hole they only have themselves to blame for their situation. 

Saturday, August 07, 2021

Thoughts For The Day

 Accept the fact that you can be evil.  Accept responsibility for your own life.

The Left don't know what they're doing.  Instead of objectively observing the real world and thus learning how to master it.  Leftists willfully ignore the facts of reality and stumble about in a surreal fog from error to error and to ultimately stumble about from disaster to disaster.  Leftists openly state their desire to rule over the whole of Humanity and then proceed to conclusively demonstrate that they're totally unfit to do so.  Voting doesn't legitimize anything.  I'm now totally dependent on the welfare state, but as long as I'm still alive I will remain an advocate of Individual Liberty, live with it.  A difference of opinion isn't an expression of hatred, live with it.  Reality remains real no matter how many votes are cast.  There's a point where one has to think.  So what?

Who is Oswald Mosley?  Oswald Mosley betrayed the British nation during the Second World War.  Harry Binswanger betrayed Humanity.  Harry Binswanger banned me from his internet mailing list for advocating murder.  I realized Harry Binswanger owned his mailing list.  

What did I do to upset Harry Binswanger?  I attempted to post the following on his mailing list.

Anyone who’s read my blog knows I’m not a fan of Islam.

For those who’re victims of the public schools with the mainstream media, a group of Muslims managed to hijack four commercial airliners and crashed three of them into each of the main towers of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. We’ve yet to properly respond to this atrocity. By a proper response I mean that we should’ve erased the abomination commonly known as the Kaaba from the face of the Earth with a high yield thermonuclear weapon. And in doing so we would’ve demonstrated that the deity known as Allah was without question a false god and the doctrine known as Islam was an absolute load of nonsense.

Of course there will be those who would’ve point a finger at me and scream that I’m expressing hatred. So what?

If we would hang a traitor once in a while (pour encourager l’outres) they wouldn’t be so annoying.

A lie is a lie regardless of how many people choose to believe it or are compelled to believe it. But the truth is the truth, learn to live with it.

The doctrine of Islam forbids rational thought. But how one deals with another person determines how that person responds. When the Muslim renounces responsibility for their own thoughts and actions they can no longer be rationally identified as being human. And we who remain rational humans can no longer identify and deal with a Muslim as a proper person who’s responsible for their own life and actions. We can only see them as toxic organisms to be removed as a hazard to our lives. And worse the indoctrination of children in the doctrine of Islam condemns them to extinction as well.

The rational people of Earth are left with no alternative but to kill them all. On the day of the extinction of Islam I’ll feel no guilt about it, and neither should anyone else.

Islam, like all other anti-human (you know, EVIL) ideologies, can only be opposed through the education of the general population of its actual doctrines and effects, and through the consistent exercise of retaliatory force upon those Muslims who cross the line into violence. When we do this (and we have to) the problem of Koran disposal will take care of itself.

Harry Binswanger banned me advocating murder.  I advocated self defense.  This is murder.


A victim of Islam is lying on the pavement in Nice, France.  Oswald Mosley died naturally.  Harry Binswanger is in his seventies and will likely die naturally instead of properly at the end of a rope.

For the Armed Forces the oath of enlistment was this:

I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God. (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).

All of us who served in the Armed Forces of the United States made this promise to the nation.  No order given by Joe Biden (whom I assume won’t last a single term) or Kamala Harris is valid for a member of the Armed Forces.  Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the leadership of the Democratic Party, are clearly domestic enemies.

A civil war in the United States is inevitable.

The death of a patriot at the heads of some someone following the orders of Joe Biden or Kamala Harris will be a crossing of the line.  But the line may have already been crossed.

The Tripwire
D. van Oort & J.F.A. Davidson
From The Resister

"How we burned in the prison camps later thinking: What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive?"-- Alexander Solzhenitzyn, Gulag Archipelago

What would be the tripwire resulting in open rebellion? Examining the Bill of Rights, and considering EXISTING laws only, and not failed attempts, you will find that every clause has been violated to one degree or another.

Documenting those violations would fill volumes, and it is important to remember that only government can violate the exercise of unalienable individual rights and claim immunity from retribution. We omit martial law or public suspension of the Constitution as a tripwire. The overnight installation of dictatorship obviously would qualify as "the tripwire," but is not likely to occur. What has occurred, what is occurring, is the implementation of every aspect of such dictatorship without an overt declaration. The Constitution is being killed by attrition. The Communist Manifesto is being installed by accretion. Any suggestion that martial law is the tripwire leads us to the question: what aspect of martial law justifies the first shot?

For much the same reason, we will leave out mass executions of the Waco variety. For one thing, they are composite abuses of numerous individual rights. Yet, among those abuses, the real tripwire may exist. For another, those events are shrouded in a fog of obfuscation and outright lies. Any rebellion must be based on extremely hard and known facts. Similarly, no rebellion will succeed if its fundamental reasons for occurring are not explicitly identified. Those reasons cannot be explicitly identified if, in place of their identification, we simply point to a composite such as Waco and say, "See, that's why; figure it out." Any suggestion that more Wacos, in and of themselves, would be the tripwire, simply leads us back again to the question: what aspect of them justifies rebellion?

For the same reasons, we leave out a detailed account of Ayn Rand's identification of the four essential characteristics of tyranny. She identified them quite correctly, but together they are just another composite from which we must choose precipitating causes. These characteristics are: one-party rule, executions without trial for political offenses, expropriation or nationalisation of private property, and "above all," censorship.

With regard to the first characteristic of tyranny, what is the real difference between the Fabian socialist Republican Party and the overtly [Bolshevik] socialist Democratic Party? Nothing but time. Regarding the second we have the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team and the ATF's enforcement branch. In action they simply avoid the embarrassment of a trial. Regarding the third, we have asset forfeiture "laws," the IRS, the EPA, the FCC, the FDA, the Federal Reserve, the Justice Department's Antitrust Division, and a myriad of other executive branch agencies, departments, and commissions whose sole function is to regulate business and the economy. Regulating business for the common good (fascism) is no different in principle than outright nationalisation (communism).

However, the fourth characteristic of tyranny, censorship, is the obvious primary tripwire. When ideology and the reporting of facts and how-to instructions are forbidden, there is nothing remaining but to fight. Freedom of speech and persuasion -- the freedom to attempt to rationally convince willing listeners -- is so fundamental an individual right that without it no other rights, not even the existence of rights, can be enforced, claimed, debated, or even queried.

Does this censorship include the regulation of the "public" airwaves by the FCC, as in the censorship which prohibits tobacco companies from advertising -- in their own defense -- on the same medium which is commanded by government decree to carry "public service" propaganda against them? Does it include federal compulsion of broadcasters to air politically-correct twaddle for "The Children"? Does it include the Orwellian "Communications Decency Act"? Does it include any irrationalist "sexual harassment" or tribalist "hate speech" laws which prohibit certain spoken words among co-workers? The answer: unequivocally yes.

Although the above do not pertain to ideological or political speech, yet they are censorship and are designed to intimidate people into the acceptance of de facto censorship. We say that any abrogation of free speech, and any form of censorship, which cannot be rectified by the soap box, the ballot box, or the jury box, must be rectified by the cartridge box -- or lost forever.

Americans have been stumbling over tripwires justifying overt resistance for well over 130 years. On one hand, we submit that gun confiscation is a secondary tripwire only. It is second to censorship because if speech is illegal we cannot even discuss the repeal of gun control, or any other population controls. If only guns are illegal, we may still convince people to repeal those laws. On the other hand, gun confiscation may be a sufficient tripwire because the primary one, censorship, can be fully implemented only after the citizenry has been disarmed.

Resistance, in the context of this article, means those legitimate acts by individuals which compel government to restrict its activities and authority to those powers delegated to the Congress by the people in the Constitution.

The distinction to be drawn here is that the objective of patriotic resistance is to restore original Constitutional government, not change the form of government. To this end we believe: The enforcement of any laws -- local, state, or federal -- that through the action or inaction of the courts makes nugatory the individual means of resisting tyranny, justifies resistance.

The operative terms of the above statement are the parameters that must be defined and understood if resistance to tyranny and despotism is to be honourable, and for the cause of individual liberty, rather than anarchy resulting from a new gang of tyrants. Rebellion can never be justified so long as objective means of redress are available, which are themselves not subverted or rendered impotent by further or parallel subjective legislation.

The goal of patriots throughout the country must be the restoration of objective constitutional law and order. The failure to enforce a subjective law (i.e. the Communications Decency Act) does not justify that law existing, but it also does not justify resistance. This is because non-enforcement leaves avenues of redress, including the forbidden activity itself, still available. Should a lower court uphold or ignore a case that challenges subjective law, peaceable means of redress are still open by higher or lateral courts in another jurisdiction.

However, should the U.S. Supreme Court uphold subjective laws, or refuse to hear the cases challenging them, then the legislative, executive, and judicial branches have all failed to guarantee individual liberty, from the widest principles to the smallest details. A single refusal by the highest court in the land to overturn a whim-based subjective law, or to refuse to hear the case, is sufficient to justify resistance to that law because there is simply nowhere left to turn for further attempts at redress. At such time nobody is morally bound by that law. Tyranny gets one chance per branch.
America is either a constitutional republic or it is not. If we can restore our republic it will ultimately occur through reason, and reason will then lead our representatives to make unconstitutional those laws which, by any objective standard of justice, should have never been considered in the first place. However, we cannot assert our claim to restore our liberty if we but accede to a single socialist construct. Freedom and serfdom cannot coexist. We cannot have it both ways.

Life, and the means to preserve it, cannot coexist with disarmament. Liberty, and its rational exercise, cannot coexist with subjective constraints. Property, and its acquisition, use, and disposal cannot coexist with expropriation. The federal government's first task is to obey the Constitution. It has refused. Our first task as free men is to force the government to obey it again. The Constitution of the United States of America is a constraint on the federal government, not on the individual.
Likewise, the constitutions of the various states are constraints on the state governments, not on the individual. The Constitution contains many provisions allowing the violation of our natural rights as free men by immoral and unethical men in government. The true heroes of the ratification debates were the Anti-federalists, who secured Federalist guarantees that the Bill of Rights would amend the Constitution.

To their undying credit, the Federalists lived up to their promise. Nevertheless, only after constitutional limitations on government have been restored in their original form can we consider amending the Constitution to redress its very few remaining defects (for example, the absence of a separation of state and the economy clause).

Laws that make nugatory the means of resisting tyranny and despotism determine the tripwire. The creeping legislative erosion of the 2nd Amendment is not the only tripwire that justifies resistance. We submit that any gun control is a secondary tripwire. Not only because it can be effortlessly evaded, but also because it strengthens our cause. It is second only to censorship. If speech is illegal we can discuss neither repeal of gun control, or the repeal of any other unconstitutional "law."

Censorship is not a tripwire, it is THE tripwire. Thus, by default, censorship morally justifies rebellion.

Under censorship, no other rights, including the right to be free from censorship, can be advocated, discussed, or queried. It is incorrect to say that after censorship comes utter subjugation. Censorship is utter subjugation. There is no greater usurpation of liberty while remaining alive. After censorship come the death camps, and they are not a prerequisite of censorship, they are merely a symptom of it. Censorship qua censorship is sufficient in itself to justify open rebellion against any government that legislates, enforces, or upholds it.

However, that is not the half of it. Censorship is alone in being the only violation of individual rights that does not require actual enforcement or challenges in court, before rebellion is justified. When the government forbids you to speak or write, or use your own or a supporter's property to address willing listeners or readers, that government has openly and forcibly declared that the art of peaceful persuasion is dead and will not be tolerated. Upon that very instant, all peaceful avenues of redress have been closed and the only possible method of regaining that liberty is force. Whenever we give up that force, we are not only ruined, we deserve to be ruined.

Censorship is already being "legally" imposed through accretion by compromisers, appeasers, and pragmatists within government at all levels. Note the demands by "progressive" organisations and self-appointed "civil rights" groups to ban so-called "hate" speech (they mean thought and debate), or "extreme" language (they mean principled dissent), or "paramilitary" books (they mean the knowledge of how to resist). When our government imposes censorship, it will be because our ability to use force to resist censorship no longer exists. Buying copies of The Resister is not yet prohibited; buying machine guns already is. Unwarranted search for unlicensed books has not yet occurred; unwarranted search for unlicensed weapons has already begun. As your unalienable right of peaceable discussion and dissent is being daily abridged, your right to peaceably assemble and associate in advocacy of your own self-defence, according to your own free will, has already been outlawed (courtesy of ADL's "model" anti-militia legislation).

Unconstitutional federal agencies now arm themselves with weapons that you may not own, and train in tactics that you are prohibited from mastering. Before a government is sure you won't resist, it will make sure you can't resist.

The most irrational, contradictory, short-range, whimsical notion possible to men who claim the unalienable right to resist tyrannical government is the notion that they must first let their ability to resist be stripped from them before they have the right to use it. This is the argument of so-called conservatives who pish-tosh the notion of legislative "slippery-slopes," and sycophantic adherents of a supreme Court that has no constitutionally delegated authority to interpret the Constitution in the first place. We reject the notion of mindless compliance with subjective "laws." Subjective laws must be resisted on metaphysical and epistemological principles, moral and ethical grounds, and on constitutional and historical precedence.

No rational man desires ends without means. No rational man can be faced with his own imminent subjugation and truly believe that, once things are as bad as they can get, "sometime" "someone" will do "something" "somehow" to counteract that trend. Any man who counsels another to appeal to those mystical equivalents of "divine intervention" for "deliverance" from tyranny is our enemy by all principles conceivable within the scope of rational human intelligence.

The time to organise resistance is not after censorship, but before it. The time to prepare resistance is when our ability to resist is being threatened. The time to begin resistance is when that threat has been upheld or ignored by the courts. The unalienable rights that safeguard our ability to resist are limited to those which, if not violated, allow us to plan and use all materials necessary for resistance. We submit that only the following meet that criteria: freedom of speech and of the press, and the right to peaceably assemble--so that we may advocate ideas, report and discuss news, and instruct others how to carry out resistance activities (1st Amendment); the right to keep and bear arms -- so that we may have appropriate force in our hands should we need it, and be trained to use such force as necessary (2nd Amendment); the right to be let alone -- so that we may be free of government intrusion in our lives, liberty, and property (3rd Amendment)); the right to be secure in our persons, dwellings, papers, and property from unwarranted, unaffirmed searches and seizures -- so that our records, ideological materials, and weapons will remain in our hands (4th Amendment).

For the purpose of this discussion, we believe that no other rights are relevant because if every individual right other than those four were violated -- although it would be an unspeakably evil act on the part of the government, justifying immediate and unforgiving resistance -- their abridgement would not effect our ability to resist. If any of the first four amendments are infringed by legislation, enforced by executive power, and their abrogation is upheld or ignored by the courts, unremitting, forcible resistance, and aid and comfort to its citizen-soldiers, is a moral imperative for every single person who believes that life, liberty, and property are unalienable and self-existing, and not grants of government privilege.

"The foundation of a free government begins to be undermined when freedom of speech on political subjects is restrained; it is destroyed when freedom of speech is wholly denied." -- William Rawle, LL.D. Philadelphia, 1825

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." -- Thomas Jefferson (1764) -- Quoting 18th Century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and Punishment

It's Happening Again

 Why did The Holocaust happen?

The actual author of the Book of Genesis actually had a point: Evil often presents itself as Good.

The Holocaust wasn't a unique event.  The Holocaust (and other horrors) were the result of normal people acting normally.  Why did a particular horror happen?  There's an answer but you may not like it.  A horror happened because the perpetrators believed they were good people with their victims and opponents being evil.  We've seen this before with numerous horrors and it will happen again.  What we're dealing with are people who believe they're good people.  We have to deal with them as such no matter how horrible the things they actually do.  Many of the people who’re loudly proclaiming “never again” are going to do it again.  The National Socialists and Soviets believed themselves to be good people, we're seeing the same phenomena with Anti-Fa.  Anti-Fa claims to be opposed to Fascism no matter what they actually do.  Anti-Fa does the things that Fascists actually do.  Members of Anti-Fa will believe the lies they're told regardless of the consequences.  Members of Anti-Fa claim to oppose Fascism, in fact they're what Fascists are.  Most members of Anti-Fa don't know that they're following the dictators handbook.  Most proponents of tyranny, such as members of Anti-Fa (National Socialists, Soviet Communists, etc.) believe they're good people and that their opponents are evil.  If a dogma requires the commission of a vile act then that act WILL be committed.  When someone denies their own Humanity then they WILL commit crimes against Humanity.  It's very easy to predict what a self appointed opponent of Fascism will say.  Just take a mouth dropping of a National Socialist and replace the word Jew with the word Fascist.

Those who don't remember history are a highly sought after group of followers.  We identify The Holocaust as the horrible act it actually was.  And we should be horrified.  But we're seeing The Holocaust from an objective perspective.  From the subjective perspective the perpetrators of The Holocaust saw themselves (apart from some psychopaths) as being good people doing good things with their victims and opponents as being evil.  We're seeing this again with the Marxists who make up the membership of Anti-fa.  They see themselves as being good and their victims as being evil.  I've said this before: Killing a Marxist isn't an act of murder, it's an act of self defense.  I have a warning for members of Anti-fa, when you Brownshirt someone, don't be surprised that you're treated as a Brownshirt.  I've found through direct experience that the opposition really believe they're the good guys.  If a member of Anti-fa wants to see a Totalitarian, all they have to do is look in a mirror.  Totalitarians are never hiding under the bed, they're in plain view.  For those who value power no act is too vile.  Killing a member of Anti-Fa isn't an act of murder, it's an act of self defense.  Members of Anti-fa should be engaged with aircraft like the AC-130 and A-10.  A Fascist isn't who the self styled opponents of the doctrine believe they are.  WE HAVE THE DUTY to see the self described antifascist as they truly are a National Socialist piece of shit who should be hanged from the neck until dead.  And WE HAVE THE DUTY to identify the Mainstream Media are a bunch of liars.  Once a difference in opinion is criminalized a civil war is inevitable.

Voltaire said it: Those who believe absurdities will commit atrocities.

I have a question for members of Anti-Fa and BLM: what part of "Never Again" didn't you understand?

Why don't we assassinate Joe Biden and/or Kamala Harris?  Because their assassinations won't solve the problem.  The actual problem is a culture that holds the rights of individuals in contempt.  The assassination of Biden and/or Harris won't solve that problem.
