Why I Don’t Support The Ron Paul Freedom March
By Devvy
2-29-8
I have been inundated with inquiries and encouragement to participate in an event being called the ‘Ron Paul Freedom March.’

http://www.nolanchart.com/article2742.html

Regular readers of my columns know I am a committed supporter to Congressman Paul’s run for the White House. However, this is one event I cannot support for the following reasons.

First, let me give you a little history so you can understand why I believe that while this is a feel good exercise, I don’t believe it’s a good use of human and financial resources.

In 1991, I ” woke up” and began my journey of research and activism. In 1993, after nine months of picketing the Federal Reserve in Denver and collecting signatures from around the country, my Project ’93 marched on Washington, DC. Back then the Park Police were still using grids and estimated our crowd at 4,400. We delivered 1,763,000 signed petitions to abolish the Federal Reserve and the IRS. Speeches were made. During the rally, we collected another 23,000 signatures for the petition. It was a beautiful day in Washington and every one felt good at the end of the day….

WorldNetDaily When sexual assaults started rising in Orlando, Fla., in 1966, police officers noticed women were arming themselves, so they launched a firearms safety course for them. Over the next 12 months, sexual assaults plummeted by 88 percent, burglaries fell by 25 percent and not one of the 2,500 women who took the course fired a gun in a confrontation.

Who is John T. Flynn?


Posted on 2/29/2008

John T. Flynn
John T. Flynn (1882–1964)
[This monograph is part of a series that is being distributed, complements of the Mises Institute, in hard copy with book purchases from the store.]
John T. Flynn — journalist, author, and master polemicist of the Old Right — is highly unusual. He started out as a liberal columnist for that flagship of American liberalism, the New Republic, and wound up on the Right, denouncing “creeping socialism.” What is unusual about Flynn is that instead of being seduced by the New Deal and the Popular Front into supporting the war, Flynn was led by his thoroughgoing antiwar stance to challenge the developing state worship of modern liberalism.

The Essence of Liberty: Part 251 (1)

Dr. Jimmy T. (Gunny) LaBaume 

A Summary of Gutzman, Kevin R.C. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Constitution 

(The book is available from the Ludwig von Mises Institute at http://www.mises.org) 

Chapter 8: The Pro-Segregation Supreme Court 

The income tax was unconstitutional

The income tax law of 1894 levied a 2% tax on incomes over $4,000. But in Pollock v. Farmers’ Loan and Trust Co . (1895) the Supreme Court ruled that Congress had no Constitutional authority to impose such a tax. This was correct because it as a direct tax not apportioned equally among the states as is required by the Constitution. In his concurring opinion, Justice Field correctly labeled the tax as an “assault upon capital.”

Crusade of Surge and Siege, Part Four – Read Part Three

Barbarians At the Gates By Manuel Valenzuela

27/02/08 “ICH” — – From the very beginning, the American crusade of surge and siege – with much of it predating the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq; think to early 20th century agreements with Saudi royalty of protection for petroleum, or the overthrow of Iran’s democratically elected nationalist leader, or CIA coups and installing of tyranny, or support for Saddam, or provocations of war, or fanning the flames of violence, or importation of billions worth of weapons – has been a catastrophe for the people of the Middle East. For years the United States has guided policy and fates in the region, with its unchallenged domination of and immoral support in the regimes of the Middle East causing a complete devolution of a dynamic, intelligent and proud amalgam of peoples, continuing a stagnation of a civilization that has given humanity so much, and which has so much yet to offer.

Texas John Slaughter and His Guardian Angel

The Lawman & His Guardian Angel Who Cleaned Up Tombstone Territory
By Brad Steiger
2-28-8

Contrary to popular Western mythology, Wyatt Earp did not clean up Tombstone Territory. The controversial Mr. Earp, in spite of his secure position in the legends of the West as a gallant lawman, was a gambler, a racketeer, and a part-time road agent who made a profit by dealing on both sides of the law. The fiction of Earp as the virtuous defender of law and order was largely the creation of Ned Buntline, a prolific dime-novel writer.

When Wyatt, his brothers, Morgan and Virgil, and his pal, Doc Holliday, left Tombstone after the famous gunfight at the OK Corral, the Arizona community was far from “clean.” If anything, crime was more rampant than before the Earp regime. The saga of Wyatt Earp epitomizes the essence of the marvelous quote from The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance: When legend conflicts with reality, print the legend.

The man who pinned on a tin star and really mopped up the territory was “Texas” John Slaughter. Slaughter was quick with his wits, fast on the draw with his pearl-handled revolver and repeating shotgun, and doggedly determined to make Tombstone a decent city. Texas John had one very important advantage over all the previous lawmen who had tackled Tombstone and failed–he was absolutely fearless because he had a very active guardian angel and the promise that he could not be killed by an outlaw’s bullet.

“You can’t handle the truth. Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because, deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said “thank you” and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand at post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.”

Don Siegelman, a popular Democratic governor of Alabama, a Republican state, was framed in a crooked trial, convicted on June 29, 2006, and sent to Federal prison by the corrupt and immoral Bush administration.

The frame-up of Siegelman and businessman Richard Scrushy is so crystal clear and blatant that 52 former state attorney generals from across America, both Republicans and Democrats, have urged the US Congress to investigate the Bush administration’s use of the US Department of Justice to rid themselves of a Democratic governor who “they could not beat fair and square,” according to Grant Woods, former Republican Attorney General of Arizona and co-chair of the McCain for President leadership committee. Woods says that he has never seen a case with so “many red flags pointing to injustice.”

In other words, he will legalize and give voting rights to an invading armada of people from a foreign country. Additionally, he will continue chain migration, 400,000 anchor babies and their mothers annually, diversity visas and double legal immigration from one to two million annually. That means America’s borders will suffer relentless immigration for another four years. Why? He already voted for exactly those items with S.B. 1639 in June of 2007.

Jerome Corsi was a candidate for the Presidential nomination of the Constitution Party in 2007. Mr. Corsi has written numerous articles for WorldNetDaily concerning establishment of global regional trading blocks such as the NAU and EU for world governance.

Congressman Duncan Hunter from California was a candidate for the Presidential nomination of the Republican Party until he withdrew in late January 2008. Duncan Hunter was Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee who presided over the funding for the development, construction and installation of the US ballistic missile defense system. Hunter was the original sponsor of legislation to build a border fence to limit and control illegal immigration. Hunter was an Army Ranger and paratrooper.

Major General Jerry Curry was on the ballot in over 15 states for the Presidential nomination of the Republican Party in 2007 and remains a candidate in 2008. Like Duncan Hunter, General Curry was an Army Ranger and paratrooper. Curry’s positions on issues listed on his campaign website closely parallel the positions taken by Duncan Hunter.

The Club of Rome is a premiere think tank composed of approximately 100 members including leading scientists, philosophers, political advisors and many other characters who lurk in the shadows of power. This series of articles described the major conclusions of the 1974 book Mankind at the Turning Point: The Second Report to The Club of Rome [1]. Part 1 described their desire for the development of a totalitarian world system presented under the euphemism of an “organic society”. Part 2 described the need to create a new value system to ensure the acceptance of the upcoming world government. This new value system will be based on a “world consciousness.”

On the one hand we are currently being subjected to a smear campaign against Mel Gibson, who allegedly made some so called “anti-Semitic” comments about the Jews being behind all the wars in the world today, and on the other we are being told that no matter how many Lebanese children die, it’s all Hizballah’s fault and/or the fault of their so called sponsors, Syria and Iran.

John McCain beams. When he was defeated by George W. Bush in the Republican primaries in 2000, McCain’s hopes for the White House seemed dashed. Seven years later, as he began his campaign for the same address, the media scoffed. He could neither raise the money nor garner enough support from the conservative base of the Republican Party.

Here’s some quotes from  Dwight D. Eisenhower:

There is no glory in battle worth the blood it costs. 
Dwight D. Eisenhower 
When people speak to you about a preventive war, you tell them to go and fight it. After my experience, I have come to hate war.

NAILS, MEN, SOLDIERS, Etc.

“Don’t waste good iron for
nails or good men for soldiers”

http://thinkexist.com/quotes/with/keyword/nails/

 

For want of a nail – rhyme

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

America’s Ghost Story

By James Carroll

26/02/08 “IHT” — – The unfolding political contest in the United States is a window into America’s soul. The nation is arguing with itself. The candidates embody separate impulses. As voters choose sides, a red state-blue state polarity again takes shape. Within the Democratic Party, the dispute is narrower, but still sharp. Yet in truth, each citizen carries within herself or himself the structure of the conflict: hard versus soft, experience versus change, programmed versus spontaneous, self-interest versus empathy, hope in an open future versus lessons from the past.
