Republicans Should Adopt A Libertarian Plank In Their Platform

IRS HQ

For years Libertarians have demanded the disbanding of the Internal Revenue Service. During that time I have questioned their position by asking what they intend to replace it with. I never got an answer.

But today we learn that the IRS has been turned into a weapon against conservative and libertarian groups. Not only that but they are rewarding their employees, even those who haven’t paid their taxes, with cash bonuses.

A report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration shows that between Oct. 1, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2012, the IRS paid $2.8 million in bonuses to employees cited in the past year for such things as drug use, making violent threats, fraudulently claiming unemployment benefits, misusing government credit cards and — get this — failing to pay their taxes.

The report said more than 1,100 employees who failed to pay their taxes received discretionary awards of more than $1 million in cash bonuses and more than 10,000 hours in extra paid vacation.

At least five employees received performance awards after being disciplined for intentionally under-reporting their tax liabilities for multiples years, paying taxes late and under-reporting income.”

So now it seems that the Libertarians were right. The IRS should go away. Conservatives should make that a primary goal. Americans across the country fear and loathe the tax men. Their tax laws and regulations are so complex and capricious that even they don’t understand them.

I learned a number of years ago that you can not even visit an IRS office and get a determination that you can rely on. The officer you consult with may give you his or her opinion but it is often followed with, “Don’t rely on what I say. Washington may find differently.”

IRS auditors are arbitrary in their decision making. They also have the authority to make your life miserable through audits this year and for years in the future. We all know people they have done this to.

While the Libertarians supported the elimination of the Internal Revenue Service for their reasons we now find that we can support their position. The IRS should be disbanded. Smart conservative candidates would get a great deal of support from average American voters if they also called for it.

Fred On Racism: “So What?”

Fred Reed has devised an effective method of dealing with the never-ending false cries of ‘Racism’. I think we should adopt it.

fred-navheader

I am puzzled as to why racism is thought to be a terrible thing, rather than entirely natural and often reasonable, and why people allow themselves to be brow-beaten about it. Maybe we should stop. Domestic tranquility would follow in torrents.

As nearly as I can tell, a racist is one who approves of rigorous education, good English, civilized manners, minimal criminality, and responsible parenthood, among other things. I am, then, a racist. I see no reason to grovel about it.

I decided long ago that if, while I was doing a radio interview, a caller-in told me, “You a racist!” I would hesitate as if puzzled, and say “…So what?” This would add immeasurably to the planetary supply of stunned silence. The expectation is that anyone so charged will fall on his knees and beg for mercy. It would be a lesser offense to be caught sexually molesting autistic three-year-old girls while attending a Nazi torch-rally.

Herewith another and yet worse confession:: I do not see, or care, why it is thought my duty to like, or dislike, groups because of their race, creed, color, sex, sexual aberration, or national origin. Nor do I think it their duty to like me. I especially do not understand why the federal government should decide with whom I ought to associate.”

You’d Think They’d Learn…

… But reality and facts never enter into the discussion with them.

The other day we saw this image from Bloomberg’s anti-gun group. It shows a gun muzzle emitting an entire cartridge – case, primer, and all.

10153116_491469427642417_8890481117965615563_n

Now we see that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has done the same idiotic thing. This time they used a large-frame revolver. Anyone who knows guns understands that they don’t discharge the entire cartridge. We also know that they don’t fire unless the trigger is pulled. Here ya go:

I suspect that both organizations used the very same ad agency.

“BLM Eyes 90,000 Acres Of Texas Land”

They want to take the land away from ranchers along the Texas/ Oklahoma state line where the boundary is the Red River. As the river meanders they say the boundary changes. The BLM wants to define that change to the detriment of the ranchers. They have done it before without paying the ranchers for the land. Now they want to do it again.

From Breitbart:

In Texas,” Miller says, “the BLM is attempting a repeat of an action taken over 30 years ago along the Red River when Tommy Henderson lost a federal lawsuit. The Bureau of Land Management took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.”
Miller referred to a 1986 case where the BLM attempted to seize some of Henderson’s land. Henderson sued the BLM and lost 140 acres that had been in his family for generations. Now the BLM is looking at using the prior case as a precedent to claim an additional 90,000 acres.”

Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy Got His Wish

According to Second City Cop, “At least McCarthy’s wish last week that “no one will rest until everyone in Chicago enjoys the same sense of safety” is coming true – every neighborhood is slowly become equally miserable.”. They give a link to the Chicago Sun Times where there is a map of the violence that took place over the weekend. Indeed. The map below shows that everyone in Chicago is experiencing the same level of safety – none.

chicago shootings 4-21-14

On a related note, Chicago Magazine has done a year of investigation and come to the conclusion that someone in the Emanuel administration is cooking the homicide numbers to make Chicago look safer.

Chicago conducted a 12-month examination of the Chicago Police Department’s crime statistics going back several years, poring through public and internal police records and interviewing crime victims, criminologists, and police sources of various ranks. We identified 10 people, including Groves, who were beaten, burned, suffocated, or shot to death in 2013 and whose cases were reclassified as death investigations, downgraded to more minor crimes, or even closed as noncriminal incidents—all for illogical or, at best, unclear reasons.

This troubling practice goes far beyond murders, documents and interviews reveal. Chicago found dozens of other crimes, including serious felonies such as robberies, burglaries, and assaults, that were misclassified, downgraded to wrist-slap offenses, or made to vanish altogether. (We’ll examine those next month in part 2 of this special report.)

Many officers of different ranks and from different parts of the city recounted instances in which they were asked or pressured by their superiors to reclassify their incident reports or in which their reports were changed by some invisible hand. One detective refers to the “magic ink”: the power to make a case disappear. Says another: “The rank and file don’t agree with what’s going on. The powers that be are making the changes.”

This is fraud. It makes the citizens feel safer than they should and it allows the city’s leaders to lie about their accomplishments. Nothing new for Chicago.

Hank Aaron Tries To Qualify “KKK” Comment, Digs Himself Deeper

hank aaron

Hank Aaron was a great hitter. When I was young I didn’t get to many baseball games but I remember one in St. Louis. I was sitting in the bleachers in left field. Behind us was the scoreboard. It stuck up about a hundred feet above the field. Aaron hit a ball over the top of it. I was, and still am, impressed.

But Aaron has decided that he should comment on politics. Last week he said this:

Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated.
“We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country.
“The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

His comments have caused no end of comment so he has found it necessary to clarify what he meant. The reporter who first exposed Aaron’s comments defends him:

I talked to Hank earlier today and Hank is very upset with this entire situation,” Moore said on ESPN’s Outside the Lines. Moore said that “Hank feels he has been taken totally out of context here,” and there is the “big focus is on that statement he didn’t make that the Republican party is analogous to the Ku Klux Klan, which he never said.”
“He is very bitter about this situation,” Moore said. “This just opens up old wounds that he would rather not deal with.”

Poor baby plays the victim card and the race card and then tries to walk it back. He singled out the Republican party and later tries to say he didn’t. He lies just like President Obama.

The article in Breitbart also says,

Nightengale also said that Aaron had just broken his hip and gotten the Congressional Medal of Honor and was “very close to President Barack Obama and this stuff is just close to his heart.”

My guess is Aaron’s support of Obama has to do with skin color alone. His opposition to the GOP is based on their opposition to his ‘Man’.

Nightengale apparently meant the ‘Congressional Medal of Freedom’. The Medal of Honor is reserved for warriors.

Bizzarro Reid

Harry Reid is captured perfectly in this cartoon. He has made some completely nonsensical statements. He is intentionally vilifying ordinary Americans who are exercising their rights. He call us ‘Terrorists’. He sides with real terrorists and calls them ‘Freedom Fighters’.

Harry Reid is a sick man and he is playing a sick and evil game. He needs to be recalled.

“Are You Really Going To Shoot These People?”

It is fascinating. people from all over the country and from all walks of life have witnessed the over reacting BLM near the Bundy ranch. Not many actually were there and reported back. Those who did have nearly all come to support what Cliven Bundy is doing.

Harry Reid is calling the Bundy supporters domestic terrorists. That kind of rhetoric is designed to inflame rather than solve the problem. Reid is an evil man.

This is a film maker from New York. He visited the Bundy’s during their confrontation with the BLM. He understands that the conflict is not about a tortoise or grazing fees. It’s about federal overreach. The law is wrong and needs to be changed. The Bundy’s and their supporters were truly prepared to die to see it changed. So, apparently, was the film maker.

Dinesh D’Souza was there as well. He also supports the efforts of the Bundy supporters. He says they were facing ‘Domestic terror from their own government’.

Finally, here is video of a neighbor of the Bundy’s, a farmer, who also understands what is at stake. She also supports their efforts. This video was shot at a town hall meeting.

Understanding Newspeak

For those who may not know, Newspeak is the official language the government imposes on the people in George Orwell’s book 1984. Wikipedia says this about Newspeak:

Newspeak is the fictional language in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, written by George Orwell. It is a controlled language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit freedom of thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as “thoughtcrime.”

Those of us who read the book never expected anything like Newspeak to actually become mandatory – but it has. Here are a few examples:

“Harry Reid to be awarded 2014 Incitement to Civil War Trophy by citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh”

Heh. “Incitement to Civil War Trophy” sounds just about right. Harry Reid has done more to inflame the freedom-loving Americans than anyone else so far this year.

reid finger 2

Senator Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, will be awarded the 2014 “Incitement to Civil War” Trophy by Alabama citizen journalist and Second Amendment activist Mike Vanderboegh at a ceremony at the Cliven Bundy Ranch on Saturday, April 19, 2014. Vanderboegh, who with fellow writer David Codrea first broke the Fast and Furious scandal story in a series on the Internet in December 2010 and January 2011, is in Nevada to show support for the Bundy family and their struggle with the federal government.
Said Vanderboegh, “When Dirty Harry Reid tells us that ‘This isn’t over’ and calls the Bundys and their supporters “‘domestic terrorists’ he is using — literally — the ‘bully pulpit’ to solicit the next American civil war. Reid is a corrupt bully and he understands that this struggle is not about tortoises or cows or even the vast spaces of the American west claimed by the federal government, it is about power, federal power to use naked state-sponsored terrorism to compel the American people to do what the perfumed princes of Harry Reid’s Mandarin class insist is for their own good, even if it kills them.”
“It was the misbehavior and jack-booted thuggery of the Bureau of Land Management run by Reid’s toady that motivated people to come to the Bundys’ defense. This is about two fundamentally different answers to this question: ‘Does the government serve the people as the Founders intended, or will the people be servants of the government?’ Harry Reid believes that the people should serve the government — or else. For inciting the federal government into planning for another Waco, Reid more than deserves this award.”

Deseret: “Lawmakers, Utah sheriffs want to rein in renegade BLM, Forest Service officers”

We seem to be seeing more of this. I wonder if it will ever come to anything.

From the Deseret News:

Rep. Mike Noel R-Kanab

Rep. Mike Noel R-Kanab

SALT LAKE CITY — Multiple rural county sheriffs from Utah testified Thursday about the abusive use of police power by Bureau of Land Management rangers or forest protection officers with the U.S. Forest Service.

They are asserting it is time to rein in the authority the agencies should have never been allowed to exercise.

Sheriffs from San Juan, Kane and Garfield counties spoke in favor of HB155, sponsored by Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab, which proposes to limit BLM rangers and forest protection officers from exercising police power over state and local laws unless someone’s safety is at risk or federal contracts are in place with local police agencies.

“You cannot use our (laws) to arrest our people and issue citations,” Noel said. “We don’t believe they ever had that authority. Our chief law enforcement officer is the locally elected sheriff who is accountable to the people every four years.”

Bob Owens Hits Another One Outta The Park

It’s his post at Bearing Arms. He calls it, “The Cancer, The Militia, And Cliven Bundy“. Owens agrees that Bundy broke the law but he says that that doesn’t make him wrong. Why? As with so many laws in the past it’s the law that is wrong this time.

After listening to many opinions and perspectives I’m coming closer to drawing some conclusions. For starters, as a legal matter, Cliven Bundy doesn’t have a legal legal to stand on.

That doesn’t remotely mean that he’s wrong.

From the moment the ink was dry on the parchment creating it, the federal government has used, abused, and expanded its power into a grotesque mockery of what the Founders envisioned. The federal government was never supposed to occupy more land than it absolutely needed to function, much less control huge swathes of entire states. They have made their tyranny “legal” by passing laws and writing regulations, but legality is merely a concept… it doesn’t mean that laws stripping power from the citizenry are moral, or constitutional, or that we should blindly obey them.

The subjugation of women was legal. Slavery was legal. Most importantly, the democides of more than 262 million souls by their own governments in the 20th century alone after first disarming them were legal.

In far too many instances, and especially in regards to corrupted governments, “legal” merely means that a self-serving government has given itself carte blanche to pillage the citizenry—and kill them, if needed—in the name of itself.

You can ask President Obama what he thinks of “mere legality” and the importance of following laws as they are written.

It has become painfully obvious that the most apt metaphor describing our bloated and out-of-control government is that of an aggressive cancer. It started out small, but it inevitably, irresistibly began corrupting the body that created and sustains it. It is arguably in an end phase, a final burst of destructive energy, where it threatens to destroy the host entirely and itself in the process.”

bundy-ranch-e1397658561706

Senate Majority Leader and Nevada Senator Harry Reid warns us that the battle over the ranch is far from over, and that the citizenry cannot be allowed to win:

Reid tells News4′s Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said.

In Reid’s diseased mind, the government must win, because the government must always win. The cancer must be fed.

It’s worth noting that the actions of the BLM and federal authorities in this case have been stated to be their method of “resolving” the case. I think Stefan Molyneux of Freedom Radio put it succinctly when he said that their method of resolution boils down to:

Give us all your cattle to pay the fines we imposed on you to save a tortoise we are currently euthanizing… Or we will shoot your family.”

The situation at the Bundy Ranch is not over. There exists the very real possibility of the federal government advancing yet again with heavily armed agents against the ranch and those who refuse to concede to the federal government’s “legal” tyranny.

If they commit such a crime—and a clear moral crime it will be, regardless of the so-called legality of it—the federal government could very well find itself under attack across the nation from citizens who have simply had enough of the cancer that is a corrupt and tyrannical government that has shown a willingness to throw constitutionality and legality to the wind in order to advance its own agenda of consolidating power and stripping the Republic of even the illusion of liberty.

Never has the need for a well-armed citizenry been more apparent.”

NRO: “Bundy vs. BLM: A Visceral Reaction”

I think this National Review writer gets it. He has put into words what many of us couldn’t. Throughout the Bundy stand-off the question we had wasn’t. “Did Bundy break the law”. He admits that he did.

The concern instead has been about the fierceness and violent way the feds reacted.

Bundy’s cattle should have been prevented from grazing on public lands if the fees had not been paid. Instead the BLM destroyed his property, killed two prize bulls, threw a woman to the ground, and tasered at least one of the Bundy’s.

dead bull

Now they are talking about an attack on the Bundy ranch. For what?

To intimidate them and others; to display a level of force that discourages others from resisting. Simple as that.

One can be a supporter of the rule of law and still recoil in anger and disgust from the militarized display of force by the federal government toward Clive Bundy.

The disproportionate nature of the government’s reaction to Bundy suggests this has less to do with delinquent grazing fees than it does with the selective assertion of raw governmental power — sending a message not just to Bundy or a disfavored group, but to America as a whole. The same federal government that deploys Bureau of Land Management shooters tricked out like SEAL Team 6 directs Border Patrol agents to flee from aggressive illegal immigrants. The same federal government that would fire and prosecute federal agents who physically restrain border-crossers sends agents to tase and sic German shepherds on ordinary Americans exercising First Amendment rights.

One can acknowledge that the government has the right — in fact, the responsibility — to enforce the law, yet object that this administration habitually enforces the law in a capricious, arbitrary, and discriminatory manner. They imperiously go after a Bundy while excusing scores of miscreants whose get-out-of-jail-free card is membership in a politically-correct class. They regularly waive legal requirements out of sheer political expediency. They fail to defend duly enacted statutes with which they, the enlightened, disagree.”

Gawker: “Income Inequality Institute Will Pay Paul Krugman $25,000 Per Month”

This is a joke, right?

No it isn’t.

Progressives take care of their own.

I'd be smug too

I’d be smug too

In late February, the City University of New York announced that it had tapped Princeton economist and New York Times blogger Paul Krugman for a distinguished professorship at CUNY’s Graduate Center and its Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research arm devoted to studying income patterns and their effect on inequality.

About that. According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not clear, and neither CUNY nor Krugman was able to explain, what “contribute to the build-up” entails.

It’s certainly not teaching. “You will not be expected to teach or supervise students,” the letter informs Professor Krugman, who replies: “I admit that I had to read it several times to be clear … it’s remarkably generous.” (After his first year, Krugman will be required to host a single seminar.)”

Borepatch: “The Thought-Terminating Cliche”

I Like reading Borepatch. Not all of his essays are as pertinent and well thought out as this one but most are. In this one he discusses an effective weapon that is costantly used by people of the left. We would do well to understand the technique. Even if we don’t choose to use it we can at least recognize what they are doing and mount a resistance.

Gotcha!

Gotcha!

The Thought-Terminating Cliche

Al Fin has a link-rich post about groupthink and the hive mind:

A large part of the dominant left’s ideological battle against all others, is keeping alternative thought as far away from “authoritative” public platforms as possible. So no commencement address at Brandeis for Ayaan Hirsi-Ali.”

A thought-terminating cliche is a canned response that drops a listener into a default protective mode where challenging propositions can be rejected out of hand. These cliches have (as all cliches must) a kernel of truth surrounded by vast shades of gray that are skipped over. The usefulness of the thought-terminating cliche is that the Faithful can resist sin.

When avoiding the group mind, one is not looking for things to believe. Rather, one is looking for provocative ideas capable of jarring the mind into alternative levels and avenues of thought. A mind looking for something to believe is a mind ripe and ready for recruitment into the hive.”

This explains the hypocrisy of the Academic Left: in the 1960s and 1970s they were all for free exploration of new ideas, because they were on the outside looking to get in. Free expression helped them. Since the 1980s they have become the dominant ideology and so new ideas are most definitely not welcome. Thus the focus on punishing thought crime (Campus speech codes) as being harmful to diversity.

Of course, “thought crime” and “diversity” are both cliches. However, only one stops the thought process.”

Remember. The Chinese Protester Died

Here is a new cartoon that is supposed to say something important.

BundyRanch-AmericanSpring-Cartoon

It is a take-off on the image of the protester in Tianenmen Square. It looks heroic but the story is he was killed. From Wikipedia:

In a speech to the President’s Club in 1999, Bruce Herschensohn, former deputy special assistant to President Richard Nixon, reported that he was executed 14 days later; other sources say he was executed by firing squad a few months after the Tiananmen Square protests.[5]“

“Child sex trafficking in D.C. a $100M industry”

WUSA 9:

Said Powell says, “There’s kids as young as 5, 6, 7.”

The average age of entry into this dark and devastating underworld is 13.

“A child who’s a victim of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation cannot go to school, is most likely not able to speak unless they’re asked to speak, they can’t even go to the bathroom without getting permission,” she said. “They’re probably having sex with 5 to 10 men a night.”

And it is happening here in the nation’s capital, where wealth and power are next-door neighbors to poverty and despair.”

This story begins with the story of the disappearance of 8 year-old Relisha Rudd:

Relisha-3

Washington DC authorities suspect her parents of selling her into a child prostitution ring.

As the days pass with no sign of Relisha, some who are following her case believe she may have been sold into a child sex trafficking operation.

They point to the wads of cash and expensive items Relisha’s mother and boyfriend flaunted on Facebook in the days following the little girl’s disappearance.”

As sad as her story is, the real story is the fact that this $100 million ‘Industry’ exists in our nation’s capitol. Perhaps the ‘Allegations’ of pedophilia and pederasty we have heard against some law makers have some merit.

Here is another link to the story.

Barnhardt: “There is Nothing New Under the Sun. Know Your History”

Here is a little history from Ann Barnhardt.

FDR

Did you know that President Franklin D. Roosevelt used the US Army to forcefully remove the CEO of Montgomery Ward in Chicago? Did you know that he seized the Philadelphia Transportation Company and installed US Army Major General Philip Hayes as CEO?

Barnhardt has studied history, unlike today’s public school students. She reminds us of the actions taken by what she calls the most dangerous President until Barack Obama.

If FDR had been ten years younger than he was and had lived, I honestly think that he could have become a full-blown dictator. FDR died in April of 1945 after having just been sworn in to his FOURTH term as President. Harry Truman then became president and after the conclusion of the War appointed the Hoover Commission which promptly recommended the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution which limited Presidents to two terms. Truman knew that we had dodged a bullet with Roosevelt and made certain that a tyrannical dynasty like FDR’s would never happen again.”

Of course in these days of instant communication and nearly instant transportation it wouldn’t take four terms to complete the ‘Fundamental Transformation of the United States of America’.

Maybe It’s Not Caused By The Guns…

… Maybe something else needs attention.

“24 Injured In Stabbing At Franklin Regional High School”

franklin2

There is a sickness that is causing these young people to suddenly become violent. It’s not the access to knives or guns. It’s something more.

Are the kids becoming perpetually angry? Have they lost the respect for others – or perhaps never learned it – because they no longer interact with them? Are they becoming desensitized to violence? Are they being taught to hate?

I suspect all of these things enter into the equation but there is more. The authorities will likely determine that this boy has been showing signs of a mental illness.

Blaming these violent acts on the tools used by the madmen is intellectually lazy. It is far easier to blame the tools used than to look for, find, and correct the underlying problems that are encouraging acts of violence.

Politics controls the discussion, though. If the perpetrator is a minority or someone on the left their acts are somehow OK. If a gun is used it is blamed, but where are the ‘Mayors Against Illegal Knives’? That whole argument is phony and contrived.

The causes are much deeper. That is where we should look. It’s so sad.

MURRYSVILLE (KDKA/AP) – At least 24 people have been injured in a stabbing at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville.

The attack occurred in crowded hallways just minutes before the start of school.
Westmoreland County updated the victim count late Wednesday evening, saying 24 people had been injured. (21 students stabbed, 1 security guard stabbed, and 2 others injured).”
