Union Thug Talks Dirty To Constitution Wielding 17 Year Old.

The latest Leftover drivel from the web on the Kochs and Wisconsin-- a little fact checking

THAT IS FACT AND THAT IS WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WALKER WILL NOT MAKE CUTS TO THE PRISONS AND BY THE WAY A PRISON WORKER SAID THE KOCH BROTHERS TOURED THE PRISON HE WORKED AT A WEEK OR TWO AGO, PRIVATE PRISONS MAKE ALOT OF MONEY YA KNOW

1) So according to the Demwits, resurrecting their dead 70s comparable worth doctrine, a version of Marx's refuted labor theory of value, a government educrat who has government mandated credentials like an MA or PhD in education theory or non-profit administration, should be paid more to teach social studies than a private school teacher teaching math or science, if the latter only has a BA in math, chemistry, or physics.

2) And the Kochs are just trying to own private prisons in Wisconsin.  Even though half the people in prison are there for drug offenses and the Kochs give money to groups that advocate drug decriminalization.

Down with Fat 'Crats!


Saturday's rallies show us the Orwellian language used by pro-gressives to promote lies about their agenda.  The chant at the pitiful protests the Leftovers are holding is that Walker and other Governor's are "union busting"  -- because they want to deny government sector unions the power to force people to pay them rents if they wish to get certain government jobs.  Rents that are then used to buy and bribe politicians and campaigns, in order to make sure that the elected officials "negotiating" with public sector unions will always take their side in fleecing the taxpayers.  There is no union busting.  Only TAXPAYER BUSTNG and BUDGET BUSTING  by the public sector unions.

The Leftovers are also trying to apply the jargon of middlebrow scribbler Naomi Klein (whose work has all been eviscerated by critics like Johan Norberg), including her bumpersticker phrase "shock doctrine."  Actually the shock doctrine is a project by Democrats and was planned long ago. They created pensions and retirement plans with luxurious benefits and promises to buy votes, but did not fund them, or in the case of Social Security, actually looted the alleged lockbox to fund other general budget programs in order to buy votes.

Now they expect the crisis they created to shock everyone into allowing them to enslave and expropriate tax serfs even more.

Looks like instead they are going to be rejected at the polls.  They may have to go back to just screaming "racism."

The notion of shock doctrine is also not the creation of pamphleteer Naomi Klein. She is a plagiarist. It's from Ludwig von Mises' book "Interventionism," where he describes how every failure caused by government intervention (inflation, recession, unemployment, illiterate students, etc) creates a call for more government expansion, which then creates another failure, etc etc, in a downward spiral that leads to poverty, tyranny, and the collapse of civilization as in Weimar Germany.

NEA and SEIU threw an astroturf protest -- and nobody came

About 200 people, mainly carrying identical NEA signs, assemble in Dupont Circle, across the street from the national headquarters of SEIU at 18th and Massachusetts Avenue NW.  To protest in support of their tax predator brethren in Wisconsin and against any uppityness from the tax serfs.  Communist laughingstock Van Jones was the main speaker.  (After I posted this Glenn Beck reported that the permit applicant for this rally was not even  the NEA, SEIU, or OFA, but by the International Socialist Organization. Lol.)


Most of the protesters seemed to be over 45, like this aging munchkin, and too tired to hold their signs up.  (A few late 20s Socialist Workers Party members ran a literature table.)  See how much empty lawn there is behind the munchkin.  The SEIUers and NEAsters barely filled the inner circle around the fountain.


A very small crowd; SEIU national HQ is building on the left.


Well one of the seasoned citizens managed to hold her sign up.  I wonder if they use that much energy when "teaching."


They began with a few dozen outside of the CVS drugstore and Bank of America screaming that these corporations don't pay enough taxes to afford them the lifestyle they signed on for when they became bureaucrats.  Of course they prevent WalMart from coming to DC, so a small tax base is their own fault.


Amusingly the Leftovers themsleves provide more evidence of their pitiful rallies and even whine about it.  Over at the backwaters website AlterNet there are more photos of rallies with 6 people, and a reader who whines:

I'm disappointed that the numbers weren't bigger for these rallies. 1000 here, a few hundred there, that's not really going to register with the Right. We need HUGE rallies, and I'm talking MILLIONS of people turning out across the country, not just a few thousand. This needs to be a major movement, not just a few disgruntled people. Folks, wake up. The Koch brothers and a few other mega rich own this country lock, stock and barrel. They have the money to call the shots, and they can use that money to gin up a whole lot of power. We've GOT to counter that by millions of people taking to the streets. If it takes a revolution to loosen the grip of the extremist right, so be it. But they won't let go until enough of us stand up and say ENOUGH! WAKE UP, AMERICA!

Assault on Innocent Cameraman.mpg

Rebellion spreads from middle East to Washington, D.C.


Washington (LibNews Service) -- Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama came out today, in the face of dropping poll numbers, as libertarian anarchists, calling for non-enforcement of and civil disobediance of all unconstituional laws, even if Congress of the Court have not addressed the issues of Constitutionality.  It is thought that this new radical Obama doctrine was an attempt to appeal to the Tea Party movement and recent discussions of 10th Amendment rights and nullification.  Violence erupted immediately.

At 1:01 pm a group of armed Code Pink activists liberated Bradley Manning from Quantico, in an shoot out with Quantico agents.  By 2:30 pm, the Social Security administation building at 22nd and M Streets NW had been bombed, after hackers obliterated all social security numbers from federal databases everywhere.  By 3:20 pm the Internal Revenue Service building on Pennsylvania Avenue was set aflame, and vigilantes were lassoing fleeing IRS agents and hanging them from lamp posts along the national Mall between the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capitol.  At 4:15 an angry mob seized former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as she exited a limousine outside her luxury condo at Washington Harbour at 3030 K Street NW, binding her wrists and ankles and tossing her into the Potomac.  The Speaker's various cosmetic augmentations both floated and sank, ripping her body to shreds and providing chum for a swarm of local fish.  Some plastic bits were retrieved by U.S. Park police in conjunction with agents from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, before the same mob set their boats on fire.

As we go to press a group of homeless have climbed the fence at the White House and claimed it as squatters, setting up an outdoor barbecue pit where they are reportedly roasting vegetables from Michelle Obama's winter garden.  The whereabouts of Sasha, Malika, and the First Lady are unknown at this time.

Attribute to The Libertarian Enterprise

For the first time, in its sixteenth year of publication, this journal of libertarian views and opinion—bound by an absolute moral resolve never to initiate force against anyone for any reason, nor to advocate or delegate its initiation—has been threatened by agents of the federal government and ordered to remove content from its website.

We have done so. When you learn, in a general way, what that content consisted of, you will be perplexed, at first, then angrier and angrier as you see what has been done to what was once a free country, and realize precisely who is most responsible for having done it.

Last August, TLE ran a piece by our frequent contributor Jim Davidson about the hypocrisy of the federal judiciary. Three federal judges had just authorized a practice in which armed government agents could feel free to trespass on a citizen's property without a warrant or probable cause, in order to affix a GPS tracker to that citizen's car.

Our columnist's natural and logical response was to deprive these judges of privacy the same way they were allowing the privacy of the individuals who pay their salaries (however involuntarily) to be violated. Using only publicly available sources, he published their names, addresses, and other information. Let me state that again, so there can be no mistake: he published their names, addresses, and other such information which he had obtained from purely public sources.

This week—six months later—we have been notified, first by our domain registrar GoDaddy.com, then in an e-mail from the U.S. Marshals' "service" that we must remove the offending article fromTLE's website, in order to assure the safety of the judges and their families. (This, of course, begs the question, why in the hell their information is publicly available if it constitutes a threat to their safety.) GoDaddy.com has refused to answer reasonable questions about this affair—such as precisely what Terms of Service we were in violation of—instead simply repeating the order to remove the material.

We have complied.

I used to have a little respect for the U.S. Marshals' "service". They had a long, distinguished history, and for some reason, they seemed cleaner to me, nobler, better than the bottom of the barrel scrapings infesting other federal "law enforcement" agencies, like the ones, for example, that disgraced themselves at Ruby Ridge and Mount Carmel.

I wonder if any of them ever thought, when they were growing up, dreaming little kid dreams of being the "goodguys" and saving folks from the "badguys", that they'd end up merely doing the bidding of corrupt and irrational federal judges, thuggishly intimidating the very folks they once dreamed of saving, helping a new and unAmerican aristocracy to establish themselves as an elite with rights—like simple privacy—that ordinary individuals are no longer allowed to enjoy.

But we have complied.

And yet, our compliance is not without its cost. Everyone who reads this will now understand a little better what those who wish to rule their lives are made of. And they will know—as if they didn't know already—that these distinguished, cleaner, nobler keepers of the peace are nothing more than a cruel myth. And that knowledge—enough of it—will be all that it takes to change the course of history.

Meanwhile, whom do we hold responsible for this unjustifiable violation of the First Amendment? The Republican administration of Abraham Lincoln was probably not the first, but was by far the worst of its time. Presidents like Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt began to see the people as their property and treated them accordingly.

The RICO Act was specifically designed to deprive the accused of representation in court. The authorities and their stooges in media work overtime to convince us that anyone who "lawyers up" is guilty. Agencies like the FBI and CIA are not authorized in the Constitution. Neither Republicans nor Democrats have ever said a word to stop these practices.

Now we have the Department of Homeland Security which officially regards the average American wage earner, homemaker, student, hunter, sportsman, scholar of the Bible or the Constitution as an uncaught criminal. The so-called Transportation Safety Administration shakes down just as many inmates of this nation-sized prison as it can every day.

So who is to blame? Those who do the shaking. Those who abuse their fellow citizens for no other reason than that they can. Or because the sociopaths in power have paid them to do so. And we, the abused, are forced at gunpoint to give them half of everything we earn.

And we have complied.

Veronique de Rugy Debunks Housing Market Myths on Bloomberg


Editor’s Note: Reason columnist Veronique de Rugy appears weekly on Bloomberg TV to separate economic fact from economic myth.

Myth 1: In order for the economy to recover, housing prices have to reach pre-recession levels. They cannot decline further. Therefore the government must continue to prop up housing prices or provide incentives to encourage people to buy homes.

Fact 1: Pre-recession housing prices were a historic anomaly based on easy credit caused in part by misguided government policy. Lower housing prices are not bad for everyone. They are also the only way to get rid of our bloated housing inventory.

The idea that economic recovery can’t happen unless our housing prices return to pre-recession levels makes no sense.

First, as the chart below shows, for most of American history housing prices grew at a relatively slow rate. It was only in the last 15 years that prices exploded. The factors behind this sudden change are a mixed bag of government policies that encouraged homeownership and cheap interest rates and a willingness by banks to lend to people who could only realistically afford to pay if housing prices doubled every two years. George Mason University economist Russ Roberts has a very good blog postexplaining why housing prices went up so fast.

Second, low prices are not bad for everyone. Yes, low prices are bad for homeowners who are trying to sell and for banks that have lots of bad loans on their books. But low prices are very good for people who want to buy houses. They are also very good for low-income buyers who were priced out of the market in recent years. Finally, low prices are good for people who build homes.

But most importantly, only lower prices can address one of the major problems of the real estate market: a bloated inventory of unsold homes.

The inventory of existing homes stood at 3.71 million in November 2010, about where it was four years ago, according to the National Association of Realtors. Add to that the 197,000 new homes for sale and you can see just how bloated the inventory of unsold homes has become.

As Bloomberg’s Caroline Baum wrote in January: “The demand curve is downward sloping. What that means is demand for any good or service isn’t fixed. It depends on the price. A $1,000 cashmere sweater will find a lot more takers when it’s marked down to $500 in a post-Christmas sale. In general, the lower the price, the greater the quantity demanded. Hence, a reduction in prices could address this glut.”

We need a reduction, not an increase in prices. A return to the historical norm, not to the recent anomaly. This means that state and federal policies which prop up housing prices are discouraging the market from taking the steps necessary to get back on track.

Myth 2: We need a foreclosure moratorium to help those people drowning in debt who have had to default on their mortgages.

Fact 2: Defaulting on a mortgage does not necessarily reflect an inability to pay. The current crisis has produced a new phenomenon: homeowners who default by choice. A moratorium would eliminate the current penalty and thereby encourage more people who are still able to pay to walk away from their obligations.

While some foreclosures are driven by homeowners’ economic hardship, there is much evidence to suggest that many other foreclosures are driven by the homeowners’ rational economic calculus.

SNOPES EXPOSED – Heavily financed by George Soros | Republic Broadcasting Network

SNOPES EXPOSED – Heavily financed by George Soros | Republic Broadcasting Network

By: Randy Keith

In our Search for the truth department, we find what I have suspected on many occasions. I went to Snopes to check this out and they said it was false and there were no such dockets so I ‘Googled’ the Supreme Court, typed in ‘Obama-Kagan,’ and guess what? Yep you got it. Snopes lied. Every one of those dockets is there. So here is what I wrote Snopes:

Referencing the article about Elena Kagan and Barack Obama dockets: The information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false. I went directly to the Supreme Court’s website, typed in Obama Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the article made reference to. I have long suspected that you really slant things but this was really shocking.

That being said, I’ll bet you didn’t know this.

Kagan was representing Obama in all the petitions to prove his citizenship. Now she may help rule on them. Folks, this is really ugly. Chicago Politics; and the beat goes on and on and on.

Once again the US Senate sold us out! Well, someone figured out why Obama nominated Elana Kagan for the Supreme Court. Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. She was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship. He owed her big time. All of the requests were denied of course.

They were never heard. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn’t it? The American people mean nothing any longer. It’s all about payback time for those who compromised themselves to elect someone who really has no true right to even be there.

Here are some websites of the Supreme Court Docket:

You can look up some of these hearings and guess what?? Elana Kagan is the attorney representing Obama!!!

Check out these examples:

By all means, please… PASS it ON!

Many small businesses whose sites were hosted by FreeDNS fell victim to an overzealous government takedown and had to explain to customers why their webpage redirected to warning about the distribution of child pornography. (Source: FreeDNS)
Government believed the sites contained child pornography, but they did not

In evidence of the dangers of the U.S. government's increasing "kill switch" powers regarding web servers inside the U.S., the Department of Justice and Homeland Security’s ICE last week essentially shut down 84,000 sites in a case of mistaken identity.

The shutdowns targeted mooo.com, the most popular shared domain at free web service provider FreeDNS. FreeDNS is a free domain service that is immensely popular among file sharers, blogs, small businesses, and other independent operators. Its homepage is afraid.org.

With the mooo.com shutdown last Friday, the ICE accidentally shut down 84,000 subdomain pages. The pages were all redirected to a banner that stated "Advertisement, distribution, transportation, receipt, and possession of child pornography constitute federal crimes that carry penalties for first time offenders of up to 30 years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine, forfeiture and restitution."

The court order to shut down and redirect the sites was granted via a seizure warrant from a District Court. The warrant was executed as part of the DHS ICE team's "Operation Save Our Children".

The key problem is that none of the sites thus identified under the mooo.com superdomain had child porn on them. They appear to have been the victim of an overzealous government police force with a bit too much power on its hands.

FreeDNS has expressed outrage. In a statement, they comment, "Freedns.afraid.org has never allowed this type of abuse of its DNS service. We are working to get the issue sorted as quickly as possible."

Over the weekend they managed to begin restoring some of the pages. Meanwhile small business owners were left to try to reassure customers that they were note engaging in illegal activity [source example].

The DHS is actually bragging about the takedowns citing 10 child porn sites that were taken offline, but conveniently forgetting to mention the 84,000 legitimate sites it also killed. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano states [press release]:

Each year, far too many children fall prey to sexual predators and all too often, these heinous acts are recorded in photos and on video and released on the Internet...DHS is committed to working with our law enforcement partners to shut down websites that promote child pornography to protect these children from further victimization.

The DHS has not yet released an official statement on the abuse of power. It also has yet to comment on whether it plans to compensate webpage owners for lost business or damage to their websites.

Website owners can still replicate the redirect by adding "74.81.170.110 mooo.com" to their hosts file.

Coulter on Paul

In answer to some earnest young boy's question about why "true conservatives" should not all support Ron Paul in the Republican primaries, in the Q&A after her main hall talk, Ann Coulter at CPAC2008:


“Dr. Paul is a very smart man and whenever he says anything I listen, unless it is about foreign policy, because I am afraid he might convince me.”

Ayn Rand Atlas Shrugged Trailer Released - GalleyCat

Ayn Rand Atlas Shrugged Trailer Released - GalleyCat

In DC and other areas local groups will have group outings to see it on April 15.



The trailer for part one of Atlas Shrugged has been released, an attempt to adapt Ayn Rand‘s sprawling novel.
We’ve embedded the trailer below –what do you think? Is it possible to film Rand’s massive book?


The film’s site outlines the plot: “Dagny Taggart (Taylor Schilling) runs Taggart Transcontinental, the largest remaining railroad company in America, with intelligence, courage and integrity, despite the systematic disappearance of her best and most competent workers. She is drawn to industrialist Henry Rearden (Grant Bowler), one of the few men whose genius and commitment to his own ideas match her own. Rearden’s super-strength metal alloy, Rearden Metal, holds the promise that innovation can overcome the slide into anarchy.”

For details on DC area venues call (202) 706-6401 on April 14.
