We’re Going Galt—Packing Up or Thinking Secession, Americans Have Had Enough

February 20, 2014 2 comments

By Gretchen Olson Thursday, February 20, 2014

Americans are fed up. They feel ignored by representatives more interested in corporate connections than the Constitution. They protest unelected agencies who spy on them and run their lives at home. They complain about the speaker of the house who refuses to follow the principals of his party.

ST. LOUIS — The American Civil Liberties Union is hoping that a federal judge’s ruling Monday that temporarily barred a Missouri city from punishing drivers for using their headlights to warn others of speed traps will itself serve as a warning to other cities who try to do the same.

Government agents swarmed an animal shelter and killed a baby deer named Giggles as Wisconsin law forbids keeping wildlife without the right permit.

 

WISN 12 News reported on a military-style operation in July where nine officers from the Department of Natural Resources and four deputy sheriffs stormed the barn at the Society of St. Francis on the Illinois border.

 

Angry Cindy Schulze, the shelter’s president, is planning legal action and questioned whether the raid was a good use of government resources.

Excerpt: Earlier this week, while he was in Illinois, Barack Obama may have revealed what he truly would like to see happen within the United States.

 

You see it was while Obama was a student at Occidental College that he had time to spend with a man named John Drew. Both were at that time avowed students of Marxism and went to all the Marxist ideology courses and meetings they could attend.

 

Obama was in fact a member of the Democratic Socialist Alliance.

It should go without saying that love and pride of country should be the first qualifications for anyone seeking the presidency of America. President Barack Hussein Obama came into the power of the White House as an activist—pushed by activists.Foreboding for the future of America, Obama will always be an activist. He doesn’t know what else to be because he’s always been an activist.

 

Even as an Illinois senator, he merely wore the title without doing any of the heavy lifting.In the day-to-day running America, Obama leans on the tools of activism and has been doing so ever since he first got elected.Obama is really the long hoped for ‘King of the Isms’ who waited as long as 100 years for one of their own to come along and turn the tables on an unsuspecting and pliable civil society.

Dick Durbin: Are bloggers and tweeters entitled to constitutional protection?

Share By Doug Powers • May 26, 2013 05:53 PM

**Written by Doug Powers

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin has in the past had a very subjective and abstract view of the Constitution, and on Fox News Sunday he once again wondered which people might be “entitled” to constitutional protections and which people might not:

“You’ve raised an important point and I heard Sen. Graham call for special counsel,” Durbin said. “I’m not ready to do this at this moment. I would like to know if Holder has any conflict in here beyond what we heard when it comes to the Fox case.”

“But here is the bottom line — the media shield law, which I am prepared to support, and I know Sen. Graham supports, still leaves an unanswered question, which I have raised many times: What is a journalist today in 2013? We know it’s someone that works for Fox or AP, but does it include a blogger? Does it include someone who is tweeting? Are these people journalists and entitled to constitutional protection? We need to ask 21st century questions about a provision that was written over 200 years ago.”

From people upset at being kept awake by explosions and helicopters to conspiracy-minded theorists with their own explanations, Tinley Park citizens were outspoken on the Defense Department’s urban training exercises. Read what they had to say.

The U.S. Department of Defense’s two-night stint of urban training exercises on the grounds of the closed Tinley Park Mental Health Center ended early Thursday.

 

The highlight of the final night, which began Wednesday, April 24, and went until about 1 a.m. Thursday,

 

 

 

 

 

April 25, were numerous flyovers from military helicopters using the village’s helipad. And even though the drills were being staged in Tinley Park, residents in neighboring Frankfort, Mokena and even as far away as New Lenox reported seeing and hearing the helicopters overhead.

Internet Sales Tax Is a State Money Grab

Why are states so eager to collect taxes on Internet sales?

 

In short, because they could grab money from other states.

 

Heritage legal expert David Addington lays it out:

 

Like the money-hungry federal government, many state governments have financial and political interests in getting their hands on more and more money to grow their governments. It is not surprising that many of those state governments find out-of-state businesses to be lucrative and politically easy targets for tax legislation.

Addington explains how this would work. Take, for example, a company whose workforce and warehouses are in New Hampshire. This company has no contacts with Illinois other than taking remote sales orders over the Internet.

We’ve seen the last additional detainee sent to Gitmo. This is proof that we’re no longer going to use Guantanamo as a place to send new detainees.

I would expect that we’re going to see a push to do that again by the Obama administration just like they did two years ago.

With his family by his side, Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th president of the United States by Chief Justice of the United States John G. Roberts, Jr. in Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2009. More than 5,000 men and women in uniform are providing military ceremonial support to the presidential inauguration, a tradition dating back to George Washington’s 1789 inauguration.

Lincoln’s Inversion of the American Union – Donald W. Livingston – Mises Daily

March 1, 2013 Leave a comment

Part 5 of “The Secession Tradition in America,” a paper presented at the 1995 Mises Institute conference, “Secession, State, and Economy.” Click here for Part 4, “Peaceful Disunion in Europe.”

 

The moral grandeur of Lincoln is rooted in the myth that he made a war on the South to abolish slavery. This is, at most, a Platonic noble lie designed to legitimate the Unionist regime. Lincoln thought that slavery was immoral, but so did Robert E. Lee.

 

barbflag

And Lee, at his own expense, freed the slaves he had inherited, through marriage, from the family of George Washington. Only around fifteen percent of southerners even owned slaves, and the great majority of these had holdings of one to six. Jefferson Davis was an enlightened slave holder who said that once the Confederacy gained its independence, it would mean the end of slavery. The Confederate Cabinet agreed to abolish slavery within five years after the cessation of hostilities in exchange for recognition by Britain and France. Southerners were not fighting to preserve slavery, but simply and solely because they were being invaded. And the North certainly did not invade to abolish slavery.

After witnessing the effrontery of Barack Obama against the states and our constitution, it is apparent this man has come here for the sole purpose of fomenting a civil war. From day one of his campaign he has made efforts to position himself as a pseudo-Lincoln. From his campaign announcement in front of the Illinois state capitol where Lincoln served (with a Lincoln banner behind him), to his announcement of Biden as his running mate (in front of a Lincoln banner), from his quoting of Lincoln (in specious contexts) to his insistence upon swearing in on the same Bible upon which Lincoln was sworn in and even having the exact same MENUE as Lincoln’s inauguration.

The problem is that this man, if anything, is the Anti-Lincoln. Lincoln dogged Senator Douglas all over the state of Illinois, challenging Douglas to debate the KEY ISSUE upon which his REPUBLICAN Party was literally founded. That issue was the central question of whether a human being can rightfully be the PROPERTY of another human being. The central belief to the contrary is rooted in the same moral absolute that our Declaration of Independence invokes, which is that life and our inalienable rights are granted by God and no human tribunal has the right to encroach upon that of another. The same pillar that demanded the abolition of slavery is central to the Republican Party’s platform on abortion. Claiming the authority to abrogate this right for one group of human beings over another is to blasphemously make oneself out to be that one and only God Himself.

How Chicago and Obama Globalized Voter Fraud

December 30, 2012 12 comments

Chicago has a long tradition of padding its vote totals by placing homeless and deceased persons on its voter registration list. Jim Laski, who once served as the City Clerk of Chicago, second in power only to the mayor, noted in his book My Fall From Grace that fraudulent voters were registered to addresses that included cemeteries, municipal buildings, and taverns.

Tyranny and the Monopoly of Arms – Stephen P. Halbrook – Mises Daily (“Why They Want Our Guns”)

[Originally ran as "Gun Laws" on October 15, 1970 in The Libertarian Forum.]

 

The indifference which seems to pervade many libertarian circles regarding recent gun control laws—laws which are likely to forge the final links on the chains shackled to the average American citizen—is dangerously surprising. Apparently no one perceives the importance of what has occurred.

 

Few realize the extreme shackles placed on actual or potential gun owners by the acts snowballing into the Gun Control Act of 1968 (Public Law 90-618). To purchase a gun one must make a sworn statement of identity, which is sent to the local police chief—who decides whether the applicant may own a gun on the basis of whether he is a “law-abiding” citizen (i.e., if he obeys every order of the power elite). Firearm ownership is denied to convicted felons, dishonorably discharged veterans, aliens illegally in the U. S., and former citizens who have renounced their citizenship, viz., all potential opposers of the Establishment. Users of “dangerous drugs” like pot, anyone under 21, as well as many others are also denied the right of ownership. Ownership of fully automatic, large caliber, or other firearms is absolutely prohibited to everyone but the State.

This is especially true when you consider that at an earlier time in his life Kurt served our country as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. I have had the pleasure to meet Kurt in person more than once and to have an ongoing correspondence with him. I consider Kurt a friend and one of the good guys.

 

Kurt does get a little angry at the gun prohibitionists in Illinois and elsewhere who have conspired to deny him the right to carry a handgun concealed or otherwise. It is OK with them that a man confined to a wheelchair should be denied the ability to provide for his own self-defense. His St. Louis GRE columns often take a no holds barred approach to these gun prohibitionists and he points out the fallacy of their arguments on a regular basis.

They brought with them a remarkable $14.3 billion in income, but even that paled to the almost $1 trillion in assets and income that re-located New Yorkers brought to the Lone Star State.

(“an “A” in Shakespeare because that person is so removed from common American thought that he would never represent me—or the conservative, constitutional ideals I stand for.”) The Control Freak President

Yes. That’s right. Talk about control freak.

Obama wants to ensure our economic prosperity now threatened by tax increases by increasing taxes. Because, at least that way, Obama’s still in control.

This reminds me of a story from Abraham Lincoln.

An old friend from Illinois died after his disloyal comments about the Union set his neighbors against him.

“Blank is dead,” a friend informed Lincoln, “His extremely disloyal sentiments so provoked his neighbors that there was serious talk of inflicting vengeance on him, and he was found dead in bed—caused largely by fright.”

“He died, then,” replied Lincoln dryly, “to save his life, it seems.”

Like Obama, there’s an example of extreme control-freakishness.

So Obama wants to save our economic life by first killing our economy through tax increases because, while it won’t help the rest of us, above all, it will give the government more control……..

Illinois to fix Medicaid shortfall by promoting smoking

May 27, 2012 1 comment

No, this isn’t a story about Mark Block. Out in the Land of Lincoln, the state is facing a serious shortfall in their Medicaid funding. (A story which is being repeated across the nation, in case you haven’t been keeping score.) But the Governor has a plan! Fear not, citizens. We’ll raise the money to help people with their medical bills by counting on people smoking more. What could possibly go wrong?

(“Getting Barack Obama elected president would be “something you could really be proud of for the rest of your life,” “) The American Spectator : David Axelrod, Lefty Lumberjack

Getting Barack Obama elected president would be “something you could really be proud of for the rest of your life,” said David Axelrod in January 2007, a month before the young Illinois senator proclaimed his candidacy. “It would really change politics in a positive way.”

Axelrod, already an established political consultant, had in front of him a potential huge star, a game changer—a political advent. He saw in Obama a boy wonder, at once compelling, winsome, engaging, historic, spiritual, a hope-filled, hope-emanating “agent of change.” The consultant had a candidate who could sail to the stars.

Axelrod scheduled the ascension for a Saturday in February, year of our Lord, 2007. The site was Springfield, Illinois, where another timeless figure, Abraham Lincoln, once held forth. The Anointed One bestrode the frozen ground before a mesmerized crowd of 15,000 liberal faithful. There, Barack Obama proceeded to invoke Lincoln a half dozen times in a speech guided by the hand of Axelrod, whose personal bookshelf is packed with Lincoln biographies. The assembled ached and awed as Obama offered them not mere leadership but transcendence, an overcoming of the “smallness of our politics,” of the “challenges” of the “generation,” and of the “failure of leadership” in America and on the planet.

Chicago: the cesspool that gave us Barack Obama

February 17, 2012 1 comment

Chicago, the city that launched the career of President Barack Obama, now has the dubious title of being the nation’s most corrupt city, according to a lengthy study done by University of Illinois Political Science Professor, Dick Simpson.

He is pointing to the fact that “the Chicago area has logged more public corruption convictions by federal prosecutors than any other city.” The two worst crime zones, Simpson says, are “the governor’s mansion in Springfield and the city council chambers down the hall.”His research revealed a staggering 1,531 convictions since 1976!Additionally, Illinois is the only state which will have two former governors in federal prison at the same time when former Democrat Governor Rod Blagojevich reports to Littleton, Colorado’s federal pen this March.He was convicted for attempting to sell Obama’s U. S. Senate seat.In federal lockup in Oxford, WI, is former Republican Governor George Ryan, convicted for a complex scheme involving sale of Illinois drivers’ licenses to unqualified drivers when Ryan served as Secretary of State.

By far, Chicago is the most corrupt city in the nation

To understand President Barack Obama (D) it is necessary to understand where he comes from. And no, I’m not only referring to Hawaii, Indonesia, Columbia University, Harvard Law School, University of Chicago Law School and any other places he touched down on to his journey to the White House. All of the preceding were/are important in molding him of course and all have been analyzed in varying degrees of thoroughness.

But one influential component of his life has been relatively neglected–the poisonous Chicago and Illinois political culture he jumped in to, participated in and took with him to Washington. Known as The Chicago Way it was succinctly summed up by Obama himself while campaigning for the presidency 3 1/2 years ago in Philadelphia; “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” a reference to a famous quote from The Untouchables and the notorious Chicago mob’s brutal and corrupt philosophy.

Deputy Says He Shot ‘Irrational’ Marine to Protect Kids in Car

February 11, 2012 Leave a comment

15-year veteran of Sheriff’s Department says Sgt. Manny Loggins was about to drive away, so he opened fire to prevent a perceived danger to Loggins’ daughters. One other deputy was nearby at the time.

Sgt. Manny L. Loggins & fellow student The deputy who shot and killed an unarmed Marine sergeant after a predawn traffic stop said the Marine was acting so “irrationally” that it seemed dangerous to let him drive away with his two daughters, an official said Friday.

So when the Marine — later identified as Sgt. Manny Loggins Jr. of Camp Pendleton — climbed back into his GMC Yukon and turned the ignition, the deputy opened fire, according to Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Amormino stressed that he was merely relaying statements made by the deputy to investigators and “not defending” what happened.

“This was a very tragic event, we all feel bad for the family,” Amormino said.

The deputy, a 15-year veteran, told investigators he was parked at San Clemente High School writing reports when he spotted Loggins driving “at a high rate of speed” before turning into the lot and crashing into a gate near the football field.

The deputy pulled up behind Loggins and radioed for backup. It was about 4:40 a.m. Tuesday.

Loggins, 31, stepped out of the Yukon and walked off into the darkness toward the football field, ignoring a series of commands made by the deputy. His two daughters, ages 9 and 14, remained in the vehicle.

Other deputies soon arrived and formed a perimeter around the back end of the football field in case Loggins was trying to flee, Amormino said. Because it was dark, nobody could see where Loggins was.

“About five minutes later, Loggins walked back toward the Yukon,” Amormino said.

The deputy issued “a new set of commands” which Loggins again didn’t follow, Amormino said.

“Due to Loggins’ failure to follow the commands and his irrational behavior, including statements he made, the deputy had a deep concern for the safety of the children,” Amormino said. “In the deputy’s mind, it was unsafe for [Loggins] to drive away with the girls.”

Amormino said he couldn’t disclose what the alleged “irrational” behaviors or statements entailed, but said Loggins didn’t appear to be intoxicated.

When Loggins got back into the Yukon and either started the engine or began trying to drive away, the deputy opened fire, shooting Loggins through the driver side window, which shattered. (The girls were in the back seat and not injured.)

Amormino acknowledged that this version of events differs from an earlier account released by the Sheriff’s Department, in which the deputy reportedly opened fire because he feared for his own life.

Obama eligibility challenges spread to 6 states

An administrative law judge in Georgia could decide as early as this week whether voters in the state convinced him Barack Obama’s name should be removed from the 2012 presidential ballot because he is not qualified to hold the office.

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

But win, lose or draw, the fight isn’t going to be over, as other cases are erupting across the nation, with challenges being raised anew even in Obama’s own adopted political network in Illinois.

The Georgia hearing was before Judge Michael Malihi, and while none of the lawyers who appeared in the proceedings was willing to predict what the decision will be, several did confirm that Malihi had considered simply granting them a default victory, because Obama and his lawyers expressly stated they would not participate in a hearing to provide evidence that he is qualified to be on the ballot.

A default presumably would have meant a recommendation from the judge that Obama’s name be stricken from the ballot, a decision which would head for review immediately by Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

He, however, was the one who warned Obama of the “peril” of not participating in the hearing when Obama and his attorney had asked that the event be canceled.

Blago’s Saga by Becky Akers

December 12, 2011 Leave a comment

Punishing politicians for corruption is like scolding the Black Death for killing folks.

So we can empathize with the fury, despair and “why-me?” shock that must have roiled Illinois’ former Congresscriminal and governor, Rod Blagojevich, at his arrest, trial, and conviction, let alone his sentencing last week on nebulous charges that boil down to … governing. Show me the politician who doesn’t swap favors and peddle influence as tirelessly as normal people breathe.

Despite the preening of Blago’s smug prosecutor, self-righteous judge and the State’s cheerleaders in the media, condemning the poor slob to 14 years’ imprisonment is equivalent to exterminating one rat out of the millions spreading plague in medieval Europe: it’s the teeniest, tiniest start on curing what ails us. Judge James Zagel should round up the rest of the elected or appointed leeches and herd them off to the pokey, too, then follow and lock the door behind himself.

The Muslim Brotherhood​’s stated objective in the U.S. is to “wage a grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.” This is done through thinly-disguised front organizations with credentials as “moderates” that can win the affection of the media and officials. These fronts’ relationship with the government of the state of Illinois is a perfect example of this strategy’s success.

These fronts’ relationship with the government of the state of Illinois is a perfect example of this strategy’s success.

On August 30, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn announced who would serve on his newly-created Muslim American Advisory Council. Among those chosen were Ahmed Rehab and Safaa Zarzour. The former is the National Strategic Communications Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Executive-Director of its Chicago chapter. The latter is the secretary-general of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and is the chairman of CAIR-Chicago’s board. ISNA is listed in the Brotherhood’s own documents as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”

The Washington Post is reporting that recent damage to an Illinois water treatment plant was a cyber attack by foreign hackers, “Foreign hackers caused a pump at an Illinois water plant to fail last week, according to a preliminary state report.”

The narrative of the attack is that a Russian-based hacker created minor “glitches” in the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System (SCADA) which, according to Krebs on Security, is “designed to monitor and control complex industrial networks.” Apparently, it caused the system to turn on and off, resulting in the burnout of a water pump.
