COVID REVEALS TYRANNY and LIBERTY PUSHES BACK

I’ve read about how the Berlin wall went up. The communists just strung some barbed wire between East and West Berlin. A couple days later they started to put up a more permanent  concrete wall. If President Kennedy would have had the barbed wire torn down when it first went up, it probably would have deterred the Communist government.

You can’t appease tyrants. Every little power grab will lead to bigger power grabs. They must be stopped when they first attempt to take your liberty.

 

Gov. Inslee To Washington Restaurants: Want To Reopen? You’ll Have To Help Us Track Citizen’s Movements, by Chris Field, at theblaze.com.     There are not enough government employees to implement all of these tyrannical rules. Government can only become tyrannical if we allow it.

HU Facial Recognition Software Predicts Criminality, at archive.is/N1HVe.     This is the movie Minority Report.  This is unconstitutional on many levels.

Twitter Takes Its COVID-19 Censorship Into Overdrive, at zerohedge.com.        Big media pushes the Big Government party line. These “free speech platforms” don’t like free speech.

More People Dying At Home during Covid-19 – UK Analysis, at theguardian.com.       To politicians and “experts”, these lives are not important. They are collateral damage in our war against COVID-19.             Excerpt from the article:

“About 8,000 more people have died in their own homes since the start of the coronavirus pandemic than in normal times, a Guardian analysis has found, as concerns grow over the number avoiding going to hospital.”

“Of that total, 80% died of conditions unrelated to Covid-19, according to their death certificates. Doctors’ leaders have warned that fears and deprioritisation of non-coronavirus patients are taking a deadly toll.”

Georgia COVID Hospitalizations Drop After State Reopens, at zerohedge.com.       This is a short time sample. But it looks promising. Maybe we have built up enough herd immunity to make a difference in spite of Government edicts that made herd immunity more difficult to acquire.

If US Is Unprepared For A Second Wave Of Coronavirus, Fauci Warns Country Could Be In For ‘a Bad Fall and A Bad Winter’, by Christina Maxouris, at ccn.com.           To add to my above comments; Fauci has almost guaranteed a second wave because of his ‘flattening the curve’ policy. By flattening the curve he extended the curve. I hope we have built up enough herd immunity so we don’t have a second wave.

As Waffle Restaurant Defies Closure, Video Shows Fresno Officer’s Confrontation With Angry Customers, at abc7.com.        I am glad people are taking a stand. But these rules are putting police in a no win situation. They are tasked with enforcing arbitrary rules made by power hungry politicians. People are going to push back and someone will get hurt. Why don’t we make the rule makers go out with the police so they can deal with the consequences of the rules they came up with. Let’s see it they can explain their arbitrary rules face to face to the people who are taking a stand.

Seattle Cop Prepares To Be Fired After Refusing To Remove VIral Video Reminding Officers Not To Obey Tyrannical Orders, at zerohedge.com.          Watch this video. This cop gets it.

The Worldwide Lockdown May Be The Greatest Mistake In History, by Dennis Prager, at pjmedia.com.        Excerpt from the article:

“That’s the way it is today on planet Earth, where deceit, cowardice and immaturity now dominate almost all societies because the elites are deceitful, cowardly and immature.”

“But for those open to reading thoughts they may differ with, here is the case for why the worldwide lockdown is not only a mistake but also, possibly, the worst mistake the world has ever made. And for those intellectually challenged by the English language and/or logic, “mistake” and “evil” are not synonyms. The lockdown is a mistake; the Holocaust, slavery, communism, fascism, etc., were evils. Massive mistakes are made by arrogant fools; massive evils are committed by evil people.”

“The forcible prevention of Americans from doing anything except what politicians deem “essential” has led to the worst economy in American history since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It is panic and hysteria, not the coronavirus, that created this catastrophe. And the consequences in much of the world will be more horrible than in America.”

 

RUSSIA PROBE, FLYNN CASE, OBAMAGATE

 

Open Memorandum To Barack Obama, by Sidney Powell

Former President Obama said he can’t find precedent for Flynn dismissal. Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell calls him out.

Here is what former President Obama said…….“there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.”

Her is some of Sidney Powell’s response:

“General Flynn was not charged with perjury—which requires a material false statement made under oath with intent to deceive.1 A perjury prosecution would have been appropriate and the Rule of Law applied if the Justice Department prosecuted your former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for his multiple lies under oath in an investigation of a leak only he knew he caused.”

“McCabe lied under oath in fully recorded and transcribed interviews with the Inspector General for the DOJ. He was informed of the purpose of the interview, and he had had the benefit of counsel. He knew he was the leaker. McCabe even lied about lying. He lied to his own agents—which sent them on a “wild-goose-chase”—thereby making his lies “material” and an obstruction of justice. Yet, remarkably, Attorney General Barr declined to prosecute McCabe for these offenses.”

“Applying the Rule of Law, after declining McCabe’s perjury prosecution, required the Justice Department to dismiss the prosecution of General Flynn who was not warned, not under oath, had no counsel, and whose statements were not only not recorded, but were created as false by FBI agents who falsified the 302.

 

“It would seem your “wingman” Eric Holder is missing a step these days at Covington & Burling LLP. Indelibly marked in his memory (and one might think, yours) should be his Motion to Dismiss the multi-count jury verdict of guilty and the entire case against former United States Senator Ted Stevens. Within weeks of Mr. Holder becoming Attorney General, he moved to dismiss the Stevens prosecution in the interest of justice for the same reasons the Justice Department did against General Flynn—egregious misconduct by prosecutors who hid exculpatory evidence and concocted purported crimes.”

“As horrifying as the facts of the Stevens case were, they pale in comparison to the targeted setup, framing, and prosecution of a newly elected President’s National Security Advisor and the shocking facts that surround it. This case was an assault on the heart of liberty— our cherished system of self-government, the right of citizens to choose their President, and the hallowed peaceful transition of power.”

 

“The inability of anyone in your alumni association to find “anybody who has been charged [with anything] just getting off scot-free” would be laughable were it not so pathetic.”

“………..the egregious prosecutorial misconduct of your longest serving White House Counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler; your counter-terrorism advisor Lisa Monaco; Loretta Lynch’s DAG for the Criminal Division Leslie Caldwell; and Mueller protégé Andrew Weissmann. While they worked as federal prosecutors on the Enron Task Force—under the purported supervision of Christopher Wray—they destroyed Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs; sent four Merrill Lynch executives to prison on an indictment that criminalized an innocent business transaction while they hid the evidence that showed those defendants were innocent for six years. Both cases were reversed on appeal for their over-criminalization and misconduct. Indeed, Andersen was reversed by a unanimous Supreme Court.”

 

“The Mueller special counsel operation led by Andrew Weissmann and Weissmann “wannabes” specializes in prosecutorial terrorist tactics repulsive to everything “justice” is supposed to mean. These tactics are designed to intimidate their targets into pleading guilty—while punishing them and their families with the process itself and financial ruin.”

“Most important, General Flynn was honest with the FBI agents. They knew he was—and briefed that to McCabe and others three different times. At McCabe’s directions, Agent Strzok and McCabe’s “Special Counsel” Lisa Page, altered the 302 to create statements Weissmann, Mueller, Van Grack, and Zainab Ahmad could assert were false. Only the FBI agents lied—and falsified documents. The crimes are theirs alone.”

“These are just a few obvious and well-known examples to those paying any attention to criminal justice issues.

Eric Holder partner at Covington & Burling Law Firm.      Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder is a partner at the law firm that originally defended General Flynn. The incestuous relationship of everyone in Washington D.C. should make us suspicious of everything that goes on in that swamp.

Trump Tweets Carlson’s Crushing Breakdown Why The Former President Should Be Panicking, at zerohedge.com.          There is no way former President Obama will ever be held legally responsible for anything that happened during his presidency. We don’t do that to former Presidents. But Trump is using Obama’s tactics against him. He is prosecuting him in the court of public opinion. Sal Alinsky tactics?

Let’s Take A Timeout And Laugh

June 14, 2018

George Carlin and Rodney Dangerfield each has a unique comedic style. Take some time to escape from your normal day and laugh a little. You deserve it.

George Carlin examines the meanings of expressions or sayings we use in the English language.

Earth Day 2016

April 22, 2016

On Earth Day 2016, let’s look at environmentalism, climate change and fossil fuels.

FOSSIL FUELS: THE GREENEST ENERGY, by Alex Epstein, from Prager University.

Some excerpts from the article:

“What if I told you someone had developed an energy source that could help us solve our biggest environmental challenges, purify our water and air, make our cities and homes more sanitary and keep us safe from potential catastrophic climate change? What if I also told you that this energy source was cheap, plentiful, and reliable? Well there is such a source. You probably know it as fossil fuel; oil, natural gas,and coal.”

Fossil fuels don’t take a naturally safe environment and make it dangerous. They empower us to take a naturally dangerous environment and make it cleaner and safer.”

CLIMATE CHANGE: WHAT DO SCIENTISTS SAY, from Prager University. MIT atmospheric physicist, Richard Lindzen, summarizes the science behind climate change.

Excerpt from the article:

Global warming alarmism provides politicians, environmentalists and media, more than any other issue, with the things they most want. For politicians its money and power. For environmentalists its money for their organizations and confirmation fo their near religious devotion to the idea that man is a destructive force acting upon nature. For the media its ideology, money and headlines, doomsday scenarios sell.”

RATIONAL DISCUSSION ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE? NO CHANCE

Alex Epstein spoke in front of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee which was holding a hearing examining the Role of Environmental Policies on Access to Energy and Economic Opportunity. If you want to watch his 5 minute speech click here It is definitely worth watching. What I want you to see is how Barbara Boxer acts when she gets to ask questions of the panel. Watch the video and compare her antics to the logical calm arguments made by the two gentleman in the first two videos in this post. Her actions are exactly what Richard Lindzen was talking about in the video above.

 

SAVING THE PLANET – GEORGE CARLIN

Senator Boxer, I know he is not a scientist, but he makes a lot of sense when talking about the possibility that man can destroy the planet. Not only is this really funny, but it will make you think.

 

Recycling: Uneconomic Is Wasteful, by Robert Bradley Jr, at masterresource.org. Excerpt from the article;

“…if costs are greater than the revenues of a produce, then economic value is lost: if revenues are greater than the cost, economic value is created. Enter Recycling, which has turned (even more so) into an economic loser in the current era of low commodity prices. What this means is that the cost of sorting and transforming trash into useful products is less than the revenue-and recycling should not be done.

Naive Environmentalism Is Like Religious Fundamentalism, by Mark J. Perry, at carpediemblog. Economist Steve Landsburg tells how he dealt with his daughter being indoctrinated into environmentalism. Here is an excerpt from the article;

…my daughter’s teachers are honestly oblivious that there is a diversity in politics. Let me then make that diversity clear. We are not environmentalists. We ardently oppose environmentalists. We consider environmentalism a form of mass hysteria akin to Islamic fundamentalism or the War on Drugs. we do not recycle. We teach our daughter not to recycle. We teach her that people who try to convince her to recycle, or who try to force her to recycle, are intruding on her rights. The entire program of environmentalism is as foreign to us as the doctrine of Christianity ( Note: Landsburg is Jewish). We face no current threat of having Christianity imposed on us by petty tyrants; the same can not be said of environmentalism. My county government never tried to send me a New Testament, but it did send me a recycling bin.

Central Station Solar: Ivanpah Fail ($2.2 Billion Bust), by Stanislav Jakuba, at masterresource.org. It makes no sense to use a more expensive power source when there is less expensive power sources. Solar is not competitive even with government subsidies. Central station solar power is a scam. Solar will not be a viable alternative, until the real cost, without subsidies, is lower than the cost of power produced by fossil fuels or nuclear.

Natural Gas Use Slashes Air Emissions, by Joe Massaro, at energyindepth.org. The fracking boom has created a natural gas boom. Natural gas burns cleaner than coal. As power plants switch from coal to cleaner burning natural gas, CO2 emissions will start to decrease. But this isn’t why natural gas is being used. Natural gas is being used because it is simply cheaper. Lowering CO2 emissions is a serendipity phenomenon of using the cheaper alternative. Markets work.

RICO For Government Climate Deniers, by Paul Driessen, at cfact.org. When the left can’t convince people of its position on global warming, it will use RICO statutes to make you comply with their vision. This is what tyrants do.

Must Read “Leftovers”

Three Reasons To Be Worried About The Economy, by Yonathan Amselem at mises.org.1) Electronically printing counterfeit money by the Federal Reserve has created malinvestment that will have to be liquidated at some point. 2) Corporations have taken on large amounts of debt. 3) Government intervention disincentivizes entrepreneurship.

Supreme Court Blocks Obama Carbon Emissions Plan, at tammybruce.com. A 5-4 decision that would be flipped if Obama gets to appoint another  judge to the supreme court.

U.S. Eyes Ways To Toughen Fight Against Domestic Extremists, at reuters.com. There may come a day when anyone who exercises their first amendment right to free speech and peacefully assemble to petition the Government for a redress of grievances, will be considered an anti-government extremist and locked up. That can’t happen here can it?

FBI Eye’s ‘Lone-Wolf’ Terror Attack In Ohio, at wnd.com. No comment necessary!

Liberty’s Greatest Enemy Today, by Gary North, at lewrockell.com. Excerpt from the article: “The legal revolution of administrative law is the greatest single threat to liberty in the world today, and it is firmly locked into the American social and legal order. People unthinkingly accept it. They are unaware of it.

The Truth About Politics, by Lew Rockwell, at mises.org. Government schools, the media, and politicians tell us that the voluntary exchange of the free market is evil and involuntary confiscation and redistribution by government is good. Excerpt from the article: “But who wouldn’t rather take a sales call from Norwegian Cruise Line than an audit demand from the Internal Revenue Service?”

Take Advantage Of This Anti-Political Correctness Moment, by Stella Morabito, at thefederalist.com. Why have we let this politically correct nonsense get this far? Fight back by being as politically incorrect as you can be.

Global Warming?

February 20, 2015

The temperature is going to get down to -14 degrees (or 247 degrees Kelvin) tonight here in Ohio,  so I thought I would post a video about global warming that I saw on economicpolicyjournal.com. In the video below Dr. Pierre Latour uses physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, economics, history and ethics to show the futility of attempting to designing a thermostat to control Earth’s temperature by adjusting CO2 levels. It’s long but very interesting when you get into the meat of the talk.

 

IS DR. LATOUR RELATED TO GEORGE CARLIN?

Dr. Latours voice and delivery reminds me of George Carlin. If you get board watching the above video, watch the George Carlin video below. It is a shorter and funner version of Dr Latour’s talk.
