Nestle joins the “plant based burger” movement

First, it was Burger King. Next came Chick-fil-A. Then it was Little Ceaser’s. Companies have inexplicably been signing on to use laboratory-grown, plant-based “meat” substitutes in everything from burgers to sausage. And now, joining the parade is Nestle. Wait a minute… Nestle makes burgers? I thought they did hot chocolate. (CNBC)

 

Nestle is looking to take a bite of the growing U.S. plant-based burger market.

Through its Sweet Earth brand, which it acquired in 2017, the global food giant will launch its Awesome Burger in the fall. The vegan meat substitute will be available at grocery stores, restaurants and universities.

Sweet Earth founders Brian and Kelly Swette said they began developing their own plant-based burger several years ago — before nearly every restaurant chain announced a plant-based option and Beyond Meat went public.

Okay, so Sweet Earth Foods is a brand that Nestle bought to expand their portfolio. You can take a look at this particular horror show at their site. They’re prominently advertising the “Awesome Burger” as coming soon. I’ll give them credit. The actual burger part of the sandwich does kinda sorta look like a real hamburger if you don’t stare at it too closely. But still… not quite. Take a look for yourself. (Click on image for full-size picture.)

See what I mean? As I said, it sort of looks like meat, but there are weird gaps in the patty. It looks fairly juicy, but keep in mind that this is an advertising photo and those things rarely look like what actually comes out of the package and winds up on your plate. If you’re not familiar with the process, take a gander at this report on how photographers make the food look so delicious. The list of secret tricks includes, but is not limited to, glue, sponges, tampons, shoe polish, and motor oil.

Might come down to a coin toss if you ask me.

Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  So this particular nightmare is spreading faster than I’d ever imagined it would. Whether you’re going into a restaurant and placing an order with your nifty new AI-controlled robot waiter or picking up something at the grocery store to cook at home, you’ll need to be on your guard. I think they’re still required to tell you that you’re purchasing some sort of Frankenplant composite, but labels can be tricky. Be sure to ask first.

In the end, this is all being cooked up (literally) by the people trying to drive the beef industry out of business. You know what we have to do, people. Suck it up and start eating more steaks.

Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

edited by

Dr Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

Is now available in both PAPERBACK and Kindle

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

In a recent article on LewRockwell.com entitled “Imposing the Steal: America’s Great Struggle Session,” Vasko Kohlmayer explained how a tool of twentieth-century totalitarians was “public humiliation and torment” of those with “wrong thinking.” The targeted individuals were compelled to confess their wrongdoing, apologize to society, and repent for the error of their thinking.

The reason for this is that “To totalitarians truth is as the cross is to the devil.” Totalitarians “force their victims to give up that which is true and accept that which is false.” As F.A.

In a recent article on LewRockwell.com entitled “Imposing the Steal: America’s Great Struggle Session,” Vasko Kohlmayer explained how a tool of twentieth-century totalitarians was “public humiliation and torment” of those with “wrong thinking.”  The targeted individuals were compelled to confess their wrongdoing, apologize to society, and repent for the error of their thinking.

The reason for this is that “To totalitarians truth is as the cross is to the devil.”  Totalitarians “force their victims to give up that which is true and accept that which is false.” As F.A. Hayek wrote in the Road to Serfdom, in totalitarian societies “truth” is not discovered by research, education, discussion and debate, and the scientific method, but is merely announced by the authorities.

Kohlmayer uses as an illustration of these principles the current massive effort to censor all talk of how the presidential election was stolen and to try to ruin anyone who brings it up. “They want us to confess Joe Biden as a legitimate president even though there were no meaningful investigations into the many obvious and gross election irregularities . . . We are told we must accept the obvious sham or else.  Those who refuse are subjected to psychological, social and financial torment . . . .  If you only concede, they are told, the vilification and punishment will cease . . .”  (I write this one day after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it will not hear any of the dozens of cases having to do with vote fraud.  The Supreme Ostriches with Heads in the Sand would be a more appropriate label).

Having just spent forty-one years as a university economics professor, I would suggest that the one place where such “struggle sessions” (minus threats of hanging or shooting the victim as under communism!) is America’s Stalinist universities, with very few exceptions.  One thing that immediately came to mind upon reading Kohlmayer’s article is the many examples of the now-widespread, heavy-handed, totalitarian practice on university campuses of “students” demanding the disinviting of conservative or libertarian speakers. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has a list of almost 500 conservative or libertarian speakers who have been disinvited or pressured to cancel in just the past couple of years.  They then demand (not suggest) that the university apologize for the invitation or, God forbid, allowing the speaker to set foot on campus.  Quite often there is also a demand that the shamed speaker himself apologize, or someone on the campus –perhaps the students who issued the invitation — apologize for him!  It’s all about humiliating anyone with “the wrong ideas” and anyone who supports or is associated with him.

All of this is taken directly from the Stalinist political playbook, presumably the chapter on “struggle sessions.”  The purpose is to humiliate, harass, and slander anyone who challenges any of the superstitions of the reigning ideology of vulgar pop-Marxist totalitarianism that has replaced actual intellectual discourse on American college campuses.  A secondary purpose is to intimidate any conservative or libertarians from accepting any speaking invitations – almost always from student groups, rarely the faculty.

The lengthy lists of “demands” that are now frequently made by “student organizations” hardly ever originate with the students themselves, but are the work of pop Marxist faculty and administrators who use the students as pawns or dupes in their political game playing.  In an October 16, 2018 New York Times op-ed conservative Professor Samuel Abrams of Sarah Lawrence College reported on his study of 900 university administrators whose job is to directly interact with students.  Universities are polluted with such bureaucrats and bureaucracies.  They begin influencing students before school even starts in their freshman year, during freshman orientation, and work diligently to enforce mandatory “wokeness” for as long as they are enrolled.  In his sample of 900 “student-facing administrators” Professor Abrams found that only 6 percent considered themselves to be conservatives.  The other 94 percent are the conniving left-wing ideologues who view their jobs as indoctrinating students with their extreme left-wing views and shaming and intimidating those who hesitate.  Not that the top administrators – university presidents and vice presidents, deans of various colleges – are innocent:  They are the ones who hired these Stalinist indoctrinators in the first place.

The genesis of Professor Abrams’s research was his disappointment that his own campus was so overwhelmingly lopsided with conferences, lecture series, and other events where the topics and speakers were almost 100 percent leftist. Organized Crime: The U… Thomas J. DiLorenzo Best Price: $11.82 Buy New $10.79 (as of 06:00 EST – Details)

As with almost all other American colleges and universities, intellectual diversity is almost absent at Sarah Lawrence College.  Students are taught by overwhelming leftist professors, and the adults who have the most personal contact with them during their college years are even farther to the left, said Professor Abrams.

For pointing out this clear, indisputable fact, a “student group” at Sarah Lawrence College demanded that he apologize for pointing out the extreme leftist bias at all of these institutions, called him a “racist” for doing so, and called for his firing – for starters.  I have been reading about dozens of other incidents just like this for the past decade or so.  Like I said, there must be a Stalinist training manual somewhere that campus leftists, from university presidents on down, possess – a version of Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book.

This is what most American universities have now become:  totalitarian socialist indoctrination academies.  Rather than responding to conservative or libertarian ideas with criticism, comment, and debates that rely on logic and facts, there is slander, libel, ritualistic defamation, and attempted humiliation and ruination of careers.  They have become clones of the disgraced, far Left Southern Poverty Law Center, in other words.

I first experienced this bizarre practice of a university responding to a non-Marxist campus speaker with slander, libel, and demands for apologies instead of civilized intellectual discussion and debate a little over twelve years ago when I sponsored a lecture before a room full of undergraduates by my friend Professor Walter Block at Loyola University Maryland.  Walter’s dissertation chairman at Columbia University back in the day was Nobel laureate Gary Becker who was famous for a lot of things in his profession, including literally inventing the subdiscipline of the economics of discrimination.  Walter’s speech was a very mainstream rendition of the economics of discrimination.  It was actually a tour de force lecture filled with brilliant comments and insights and arguments backed up with loads of facts.  As the sponsor of the lecture I was thrilled at the preparation that obviously went into it and how Walter gave these students such a sterling example of economic scholarship and the economic way of thinking.  There are several versions of this lecture on YouTube.

One of the elementary insights of the economics of discrimination starts with an example of an employer who has two employees, a male and a female, who can both produce say, $100,000/year in revenue.  He pays the male  $75,000/year and the female $35,000 because he is a misogynist.  He will have to pay a price for discriminating, however, for competitors will gladly offer the female say, $50,000/year and pocket a tidy profit for themselves of $50,000 (The $100K she produces for him, minus the $50K he pays her).  Then another competitor will offer her say, $70,000 and still make an extra $30,000.  And on it goes.  If there is enough competition in the marketplace the female wage will approach the male wage.  Meanwhile, for a period of time the misogynist will be stuck with an all-male, higher-paid workforce than his competitors.  The economics of discrimination does not deny that such discrimination exists, only that market forces and competition will reduce its prevalence. The Real Lincoln: A Ne… Dilorenzo, Thomas J. Best Price: $4.25 Buy New $7.48 (as of 07:05 EST – Details)

However, one of the chief superstitions of the Stalinist campus Left is that America is such an irredeemably racist and evil place, and “the legacy of slavery” is such a determining factor, that nothing can ever improve he situation, especially capitalism.  The combination of denying this Leftist superstition and defending capitalism causes their little pea-sized brains to explode.  Such things as the economics of discrimination are therefore tools of white supremacy, they say, and ought to be censored.  Anyone who speaks in such a way deserves to have his career (and his life) ruined.  So goes the campus Stalinist mantra.

Consequently, During the Q&A after Walter’s lecture, a black student who was not even an economics student, and who was sent there by some of the conniving trouble-making faculty and administrators at Loyola University Maryland, asked if this logic applied to black/white wage differences as well.  Professor Block answered in the affirmative, as Gary Becker himself would have had he been the speaker.  In fact there are dozens, maybe hundreds, of peer-reviewed academic journal articles on the subject in the economics literature.  Two Nobel laureates – Gary Becker and Kenneth Arrow – wrote books entitled The Economics of Discrimination.  To the economics profession this is a legitimate area of inquiry and research.  But not at Loyola University Maryland and most other universities these days, apparently.

The next morning a faculty colleague called me at home to ask if I was aware of the “sh*t storm” on campus.  The smear was in.  The black student had left the room and went directly to the “social justice crowd” on the faculty, as one of my students at the time described them, supposedly to complain.  The university president, one Brian Linnane, immediately announced in an email to all faculty, students, staff, and alumni that a guest speaker had made “insensitive” remarks for which he (Linnane) was apologizing.  He followed that up with a sappy, insufferably sanctimonious sermon on his personal devotion to fighting racial discrimination.  He did not mention what was said that was “insensitive,” of course, since he was not at the lecture. He called Walter Block a racist without using the word “racist,” in other words.  I met with the academic vice president to discuss this smear a few days later and told him that Linnane must have had a lawyer standing at his side when he wrote the letter in such a spineless, cowardly, and dishonest way.

When a Baltimore Sun reporter called the university to ask just what was said that was so catastrophic, she received no answer and no one else ever did.  She laughed when she called me and heard my explanation for what happened, and mocked the university administrators in the article she wrote about this act of defamation in the Sun.

The university administrators knew that Walter Block himself would never apologize, and neither would I, the sponsor of the lecture.  So they pressured several members of the economics department who were not even at the lecture to write a letter of apology in the student newspaper, which they dutifully did.  That letter was a lie, since it was signed by “The Economics Department” despite the fact that I did not even hear of the letter as it was being written and certainly did not sign it, and neither did the department chairman, Father Hank Hilton, S.J., who considered the entire charade to be morally and intellectually fraudulent. Hamiltonu2019s Curse: … Thomas J. Dilorenzo Best Price: $3.92 Buy New $8.25 (as of 05:55 EST – Details)

After the letter appeared a university administrator – another Stalinist Jesuit priest like Linnane – published a letter in the school newspaper thanking and congratulating all the students who participated in the ritualistic defamation of Walter Block.  Linnane himself then sent out another one of his buffoonish emails declaring his everlasting love and devotion for free speech on campus.  That kind of subterfuge     also seems to be an integral part of the campus Stalinist handbook.

Long-time readers of LewRockwell.com may remember that Walter Block and I then forced the Stalinist administrators and economics faculty of Loyola University Maryland to deal with a sh*t storm of their own by writing dozens of articles on the topic on the Web site and spending six hours on WBAL Radio in Baltimore with my old friend the late Ron Smith discussing this attack on free speech, academic freedom, and civilized manners at this and other universities.  I heard from quite a few alumni, including one memorable letter from a man who told me that he was about to send a $50,000 donation to the university, but after hearing us on WBAL he decided to give the money to his church instead.  I made sure that the university administrators received a copy of his email.

Some thirty years ago I attended a Liberty Fund conference at which the late Professor Henry Manne was also an attendee.  I recall him saying at that time that “we’ve lost the universities.”  By “we” he was referring to scholars who considered themselves to be a part of the classical liberal tradition, whether they be conservative or libertarian economists, law professors, philosophers, historians, or anything else.  That was thirty years ago when the campus communists still hid behind the lying rhetoric of “liberalism” or “progressivism.”  Today these deeply stupid, uneducated and immoral totalitarians are running amok out in the open without even bothering with any more disguises.

In Warren v. District of Columbia the court ruled, and the Supreme Court upheld, that “(T)he desire for condemnation cannot satisfy the need for a special relationship out of which a duty to specify persons arises.” Because the complaint did not allege a relationship “beyond that found in general police responses to crimes,” the court affirmed the dismissal of the complaint for failure to state a claim.

Texas Actions Benefit Red China

However you look at it, the great State of Texas is being sold out from under the booted feet of Texans and handed piecemeal to the new erstwhile attackers of the Alamo–the Communist Chinese–and it would seem that the current governor of Texas loves to have it so. Al Benson Jr.

A while back (when their chads were hanging in Florida) my wife and I were sitting in the Sauna one night talking about it.

She looked straight at me and said, “You guys were killing the wrong bunch of communists” (with reference to the Vietnam war).

I have to agree. While we were hunting down people who had never owned a pair of shoes, they snuck right in through the back door, took over and never fired a shot.

But maybe it is not too late. ???

All those who work to help Communist China to dominate the U.S. do not live across the water somewhere. Many of them were born and raised in the good old U S of A. Look at what is going on in Sodom on the Potomac with the Harris/Biden Regime. The watchword for this regime seems to be “America Last, for ever and always!” Biden’s main interest in China, along with everything else he has done seems to be more financial then anything else–like, what can the Chinese Reds do for his family financially? The people behind Biden who pull his strings are much more interested in a Communist China that can and will dominate the U.S. His vice-president and Obama are two that come to mind in this area.

However, not all those that help Red China to…

The Hive

The Hive

By Joseph Sobran via LewRockwell.com


Today is the anniversary of Joe Sobran’s 75th birthday. He and journalist Tom Bethell developed the metaphor of “The Hive.” Joe explains the metaphor, below.

Sobran’s: The Real News of the Month, June 1999 — Twenty years ago, I was struck by the way various sorts of political “progressives” — Communists, socialists, liberals, “civil libertarians,” “moderates,” “pragmatists” — all spontaneously cooperated with each other. It wasn’t a conspiracy; there was obviously no central direction. But the pattern was too clear to be denied.

The word “Left” was a dead metaphor; it said nothing interesting about the people it referred to. So I used the metaphor of an insect hive, which captured the way such people moved in harmony and communicated with each other.

In a beehive, the worker bees have many specialties. The hive is organized around the queen bee, but she doesn’t have to give the workers their instructions. The bee that finds pollen returns to the hive and flies in figure eights; this tells the others the direction and distance of the pollen, and they go get it. And of course the bees need no orders to attack an enemy.

Members of the progressive Hive likewise act on their own instincts and have their own code of communication. They feel free, but they are also predictable. Liberals laugh at conspiracy theories that assume that because there is a pattern there must be some central control; but the fact that there is no central control doesn’t mean that there is no pattern.

My Hive metaphor was enriched by an essay by Igor Shafarevich, “Socialism in Our Past and Future,” in Solzhenitsyn’s collection of dissident writings, From under the Rubble. Shafarevich argues that socialism is not just a modern phenomenon, but a perennial problem of decadent societies. In the name of equality, it tries to destroy the family, private property, and religion — institutions that prevent the state from monopolizing loyalty, wealth, and authority. Since ancient times, socialists (under whatever labels) have favored sexual license — “the community of wives,” “free love,” “sexual freedom,” et cetera. By breaking down bonds of kinship, sexual anarchy reduces the individual to a mere unit of the state.

I saw immediately what Shafarevich meant. His words applied not only to doctrinaire socialists and overt Communists, but to all those liberals whose efforts constantly (though implicitly) tend toward a socialist order. Liberalism, I saw, was the retail version of the society of which Communism was the wholesale version. Liberals don’t speak (or think, as a rule) of outright revolution; they move one step at a time, always edging toward the socialist model of an egalitarian centralized state, always nibbling at the family (in the name of sexual freedom), property rights (in the name of social justice), and religion (in the name of the separation of church and state). Like bees, they swarm against enemies of (or perceived threats to) their Hive. Joe McCarthy, Pope John Paul II, Ronald Reagan, and Kenneth Starr are just a few of the many targets of Hive attacks over the years.

The Hive especially hates anti-Communism and traditional Christianity. Though only a few bees espouse Communism, all of them at least feel some sympathy for it. Like American liberals, Soviet Communism strove to “build a new society” — that is, to destroy all tradition. Liberalism’s ad hoc style is only superficially different from that of Communism. At bottom, it wants the same things, without being fully aware of it.

“Civil rights,” feminism, environmentalism, national health care, gun control, and abortion on demand may not seem intrinsically related, but they all extend the authority and power of the centralized state over private relations. The Hive intuits this with almost infallible accuracy, so the liberal bees support and promote such causes at every turn.

Liberalism, unlike Communism, adopts the pose of pragmatism, scorning “ideology,” so liberal bees consistently pretend that they favor this or that measure for purely practical reasons. But the pattern is clear. What they really favor is a state that is both limitless and godless.

The Hive has had to make concessions to reality. Communism has collapsed; the market has shown that it will assert itself against any attempt to control it from above. But since liberals profess to be nonideological, they have been able to adapt to these facts of life, giving lip service to the free market. Yet they continue to favor more centralized government, more state economic power, higher taxes, and limitations on property rights whenever possible.

By using pragmatic language for its agenda, the Hive misleads the general public about its ultimate goals. It gains power as ordinary people adopt its language without grasping the implications. After all, who could oppose such worthy causes as “civil rights,” “a woman’s right to choose,” “protecting our children,” and “saving the environment”? The news media use the buzzwords of the Hive so habitually that they have become virtual organs of the Hive. The typical bee isn’t a fanatical Marxist-Leninist; it’s Dan Rather or Katie Couric.

I’ll say more about the workings of the Hive in future issues.

“China Joe’s” Amerika–The New Reconstruction

While history moves in a specific direction there often seem to be parallels in different centuries and what is going on today has an eerie parallel to some of what happened after our “Civil War.”

revisedhistory

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

It almost seems that we are entering a period of 21st century “reconstruction” in some ways similar to the “reconstruction that we endured after the War for Southern Independence.

After that horrific war everything remotely “Southern” was under attack and had to be done away with so the country could be introduced to something the reconstructors called the “New South.” The New South was really no South at all. It was really a deconstruction of the old South that was then labeled “new” by its leftist promoters.

We see a parallel of that situation in our day. For today’s raving leftists Donald Trump seems to represent an embodiment of the Old South mentality that must be totally destroyed and its memory removed–shoved down the memory hold if you will. To remove any vestige of Trump’s Old America it…

Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty.

We are now at the threshold of hell concerning our natural rights and freedom. This evil government and its controllers have destroyed our sacred lives through lies, deceit, theft, plotted divisive policies, torture, isolation, dystopian mandates, crippling orders by executive fiat, and murder.

“Civil disobedience becomes a sacred duty when the state has become lawless or corrupt. And a citizen who barters with such a state shares in its corruption and lawlessness.” Mahatma Gandhi (2012). “The Essential Gandhi: An Anthology of His Writings on His Life, Work, and Ideas”, p.144, Vintage

We are now at the threshold of hell concerning our natural rights and freedom. This evil government and its controllers have destroyed our sacred lives through lies, deceit, theft, plotted divisive policies, torture, isolation, dystopian mandates, crippling orders by executive fiat, and murder. This is not hidden; it is open and exposed, but the people have ignored the blatant nature of this conspiracy to take over humanity, and instead have as expected by their masters, acquiesced to every command given. After all this tyranny levied against this society, they now beg for crumbs from the very scum that has enslaved them. This collective and pathetic response can result in nothing less than mass enslavement.

In the face of this obvious and extreme immoral injustice against all Americans, the people clamor for redress by petitioning those falsely claiming authority instead of relying on self and the inherent right to live free. This is akin to asking your master to be your slave, and expecting him to voluntarily comply. This attitude is not only meaningless; it actually emboldens your oppressor, and strengthens his position over you.  Weakness in the face of tyranny can only bring more tyranny.

To understand how the total domination over the people by the state occurred only requires one to accept reality. The population at large has accepted to date almost every controlling measure demanded by those that claim power over them.

It began with mandated quarantines, lockdowns, and isolation, as the abuse continued to worsen over the past year.

Then, most small businesses nationwide were told to close down, employees dependent on their jobs were told to go home and not work, unemployment and poverty became widespread, and places and events where people could gather together were outlawed.

Next, government created and funded criminal terrorist groups like BLM and Antifa, were let loose on society, allowed to riot, burn and pillage businesses, and allowed to assault and murder citizens, all while being protected by the ruling class.

State governors and their corrupt ‘health’ ministers then required “social distancing” and deadly mask wearing in order to just move about, function, and survive. In addition, these harmful and senseless rules were expanded in many cases to restrict the ability to get vital sunlight, exercise, and most other outdoor activities, and in some cases were told they could not leave their home prisons at all. This of course brought the purposeful destruction of our innate ability to fend off sickness by destroying our immune systems.

Travel was not only restricted, but in some cases international travel was completely forbidden. This travesty has not only worsened, but also forced testing for a fake ‘virus’ that has never once been proven to exist in order to move about or return to country, has been ordered. These tests are extreme, and are seemingly being used to not take samples, but to insert pathogens into the healthy and unhealthy alike.

Police state tactics have steadily increased, and the state enforcers have not only protected actual criminal behavior while abusing their power against the innocent, but also have enforced completely illegal mandates by the state goons. Mohandas K. Gandhi, Au… Mahatma Gandhi Best Price: $1.49 Buy New $5.25 (as of 02:36 EST – Details)

Experimental injections falsely called ‘vaccines,’ concoctions that contain bio-weapons, toxins, and gene-altering synthetic pathogens, and that create operating systems by injection of nanoparticles and RNA/DNA changing technology, are now in many cases, required in order to function normally. They are also propagandized as medicine when in fact they cannot curb, stop, or prevent sickness and death, but actually cause sickness and death.

Those targeted first have been the elderly, the infirmed, ‘healthcare’ workers, the mentally disabled, homeless, and children. This should alert anyone able to think even marginally that premeditated murder of the old and sick, and control of the young and upcoming generations are primary agendas of the state monsters.

People are having horrible adverse reactions to these experimental injections, many are dying across this country and the world due to these shots, and the cover-up of this travesty is in full gear by the government, its fascist corporate partners, and the controlled mainstream media. This is a travesty beyond imagination, and one that could only be perpetrated by psychopathic, evil, and conscienceless demons in positions of power.

In addition to all this, the executive branch of this murderous government has now become the maker of all law sought by the controlling ‘elites’ through dictatorial executive orders. Biden has signed, (whatever he was instructed to sign) over 60 executive orders just since January 20, 2021. Not that it is any surprise, but Congress has done absolutely nothing to challenge this atrocity, and in fact is fully on board with this dictatorial takeover.

These orders include, but are not limited to, creating another $1.9 trillion dollars out of thin air for so-called ‘Covid’ relief, rejoining the bogus manmade ‘climate change’ agreement and using this lie to advance policy to control farmlands, creating racist “equity as policy goals,” federal mask mandates, rejoining and funding the WHO, and including all illegal aliens in the census in order to alter future elections. He has signed orders to close down the Keystone XL pipeline, cutting energy supply to the country, imposing his transgender agenda on all women’s sports, imposing mask wearing on all domestic flights, and funding all state National Guard for all

Covid related activities, which would certainly include martial law efforts. He has signed orders to force private workplaces to comply with ‘Covid’ rules, making fake “climate change” a national security and foreign policy issue, forcing the use of the fascist partnerships with government funded science and technology in order to stifle all dissenting facts from surfacing, and promoting all homosexual, transgender, and every ‘LGBTQI’ agenda. He has also extended orders that renters and homeowners do not have to pay their rent or mortgages through June of this year, creating more bankruptcy and property confiscation by the state supported players at the top.

In addition to all this and much more, Biden just signed an executive order to allow the federal government, at taxpayers expense of course, to control over 30% of all American land and 30% of what are referred to as “U.S. oceans.” The effects of this are beyond comprehension, as this will be used to destroy farmlands, to put farmers and ranchers out of business, to lay the groundwork for destroying natural foods for GMO and chemical food sources that can be used to harm, sicken, and control the entire population.

Keep in mind that this is a very short list of atrocities being committed by fiat at the executive level. And this is only after one month in office. Gun control, gun confiscation, ammo blocking orders, more travel restrictions, injection mandates, and 1000 more restrictive measures by the stroke of a pen will be in our future if people to not rebel and stand against this onslaught against all Americans by the now totalitarian regime that has taken over this country. This is not in any way party specific, as the entire political class are nothing more than complicit criminal agents for the state, and are all working against the people in this war against freedom.

Petitioning government, voting, letters to congressional scum, court proceedings managed and controlled by corrupt state officers, and begging for relief form the purveyors of tyranny, is a worthless and pathetic response to what can only be called a violent assault against the citizenry, and a war on mankind.

Never comply, never submit, never close any business, never wear a mask, never isolate, and never believe a single word coming from this government or mainstream media. Disobey every state mandate en masse at every juncture or face sickness, slavery, poverty, starvation, loss of power access, total censorship and destruction of free speech, isolation, and the final destruction of this country. If you continue to comply and do nothing, the certain death of millions will occur.

“Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.”

Options for Homeland Defense, Inc. (Protecting Liberty through Private Firearms Ownership)  

“Owning a handgun doesn’t make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.” – Jeff Cooper

Call for a pizza, a cop, and an ambulance and see which one arrives first.

In Warren v. District of Columbia the court ruled, and the Supreme Court upheld, that “(T)he desire for condemnation cannot satisfy the need for a special relationship out of which a duty to specify persons arises.” Because the complaint did not allege a relationship “beyond that found in general police responses to crimes,” the court affirmed the dismissal of the complaint for failure to state a claim.

The bottom line is that your local police are not legally obligated to protect you, the average citizen. In addition to the Warren case, there are hundreds of court rulings which state that cops are not legally responsible for protecting individual citizens. For example, see Zelig v. County of Los Angeles.

The government can’t protect you as you saw on September 11, 2001 as well as during the Washington, DC area “sniper” rampage and the plethora of active shooter events that we have had since.

In fact, the government could very well be our greatest fear, due to its propensity to murder people because of their ideas (See Ruby Ridge, ID and Waco, TX).

A simple internet or youtube.com search of “the police state” or “police brutality” will reveal literally thousands of violent crimes (from assault to cold blooded murder) committed by the State’s costumed emissaries of officially sanctioned violence (aka The Police State) against harmless and innocent people.

So, who does that leave to protect you, your life, property and family? The one and only answer is: YOU It is your duty and personal responsibility to protect yourself and your loved ones.

This responsibility is a natural right given to us by God as human beings and guaranteed to us as individuals by the Constitution of the United States of America.

We May Lose Because We Don’t Care About Our History

People in their “history” classes in school are taught that the War of Northern Aggression was fought only over slavery and nothing else. If you dare to bring up the issue of tariffs as a major cause of that war then you are probably going to be called a racist because the establishment version of that history has no place for the tariff issue–and so you never hear about it. You have to do your own research to find that out and if you try to explain that to people, they mostly don’t care. Al Benson Jr.

Sometimes I watch or listen to the Mark Levin show. Generally its great and informative. But it always makes me squirm and want to scream NOOOOOO! because I have to look at Dishonest Abe’s picture that always sits behind Mark. — jtl, 419

Over the past week or so I have posted a couple articles about terrorist John Brown and some of his leftist connections (yes, he had some leftist connections).

Some of the comments I got back from various places my articles were posted were, how shall I say it, downright abusive. Everything from “who cares about all this crap?” to comments that used profanity that I won’t go into.

Some of this made me reflect a little and I came up with the possibility that, at least in our day, we may well lose the struggle for our freedom because many on our side of the political and theological fence not only do not comprehend or grasp the importance of our history, they just don’t care. They are not interested.

What they don’t seem to realize is that if…

CIA’s Can of Worms

You can find my very own “Brush with the CIA” beginning on page 260 of my book The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits.

Opening the CIA’s Can of Worms

By Edward Curtin via LewRockwell.com

“The CIA and the media are part of the same criminal conspiracy,” wrote Douglas Valentine in his important book, The CIA As Organized Crime

This is true.  The corporate mainstream media are stenographers for the national security state’s ongoing psychological operations aimed at the American people, just as they have done the same for an international audience.  We have long been subjected to this “information warfare,” whose purpose is to win the hearts and minds of the American people and pacify them into victims of their own complicity, just as it was practiced long ago by the CIA in Vietnam and by The New York Times, CBS, etc. on the American people then and over the years as the American warfare state waged endless wars, coups, false flag operations, and assassinations at home and abroad.

Another way of putting this is to say for all practical purposes when it comes to matters that bear on important foreign and domestic matters, the CIA and the corporate mainstream media cannot be distinguished.

For those who read and study history, it has long been known that the CIA has placed their operatives throughout every agency of the U.S. government, as explained by Fletcher Prouty in The Secret Team, The CIA and Its Allies in Control of the United States and the World; that CIA officers Cord Myer and Frank Wisner operated secret programs to get some of the most vocal exponents of intellectual freedom among intellectuals, journalists, and writers to be their voices for unfreedom and censorship, as explained by Frances Stonor Saunders in The Cultural Cold War and Joel Whitney in Finks, among others; that Cord Myer was especially focused on and successful in “courting the Compatible Left” since right wingers were already in the Agency’s pocket.  All this is documented and not disputed.  It is shocking only to those who don’t do their homework and see what is happening today outside a broad historical context.

With the rise of alternate media and a wide array of dissenting voices on the internet, the establishment felt threatened and went on the defensive.  It therefore should come as no surprise that those same elite corporate media are now leading the charge for increased censorship and the denial of free speech to those they deem dangerous, whether that involves wars, rigged elections, foreign coups, COVID-19, vaccinations, or the lies of the corporate media themselves. Having already banned critics from writing in their pages and or talking on their screens, these media giants want to make the quieting of dissenting voices complete.

Just the other day The New York Times had this headline:

Robert Kennedy Jr. Barred From Instagram Over False Virus Claims.

Notice the lack of the word alleged before “false virus claims.”  This is guilt by headline.  It is a perfect piece of propaganda posing as reporting, since it accuses Kennedy, a brilliant and honorable man, of falsity and stupidity, thus justifying Instagram’s ban, and it is an inducement to further censorship of Mr. Kennedy by Facebook that owns Instagram. That ban should follow soon, as the Times’ reporter Jennifer Jett hopes, since she accusingly writes that RFK, Jr. “makes many of the same baseless claims to more than 300,000 followers” at Facebook.  Jett made sure her report also went to msn.com and The Boston Globe.

This is one example of the censorship underway with much, much more to follow.  What was once done under the cover of omission is now done openly and brazenly, cheered on by those who, in an act of bad faith, claim to be upholders of the First Amendment and the importance of free debate in a democracy.  We are quickly slipping into an unreal totalitarian social order.

Which brings me to the recent work of Glenn Greenwald and Matt Taibbi, both of whom have strongly and rightly decried this censorship. As I understand their arguments, they go like this.

First, the corporate media have today divided up the territory and speak only to their own audiences in echo chambers: liberal to liberals (read: the “allegedly” liberal Democratic Party), such as The New York Times, NBC, etc., and conservative to conservatives (read” the “allegedly” conservative Donald Trump), such as Fox News, Breitbart, etc.  They have abandoned old school journalism that, despite its shortcomings, involved objectivity and the reporting of disparate facts and perspectives, but within limits. Since the digitization of news, their new business models are geared to these separate audiences since they are highly lucrative choices. It’s business driven since electronic media have replaced paper as advertising revenues have shifted and people’s ability to focus on complicated issues has diminished drastically.  Old school journalism is suffering as a result and thus writers such as Greenwald and Taibbi and Chris Hedges (who interviewed Taibbi and concurs: part one here) have taken their work to the internet to escape such restrictive categories and the accompanying censorship.

Secondly, the great call for censorship is not something the Silicon Valley companies want because they want more people using their media since it means more money for them, but they are being pressured to do it by the traditional old school media, such as The New York Times, who now employ “tattletales and censors,” people who are power hungry jerks, to sniff out dissenting voices that they can recommend should be banned. Greenwald says:

They do it in part for power: to ensure nobody but they can control the flow of information. They do it partly for ideology and out of hubris: the belief that their worldview is so indisputably right that all dissent is inherently dangerous ‘disinformation.’

Thus, the old school print and television media are not on the same page as Facebook, Twitter, etc. but have opposing agendas.

In short, these shifts and the censorship are about money and power within the media world as the business has been transformed by the digital revolution.

Operation Mockingbird Baletsa, Linda Best Price: $13.49 Buy New $14.99 (as of 05:09 EST – Details) I think this is a half-truth that conceals a larger issue. The censorship is not being driven by power hungry reporters at the Times or CNN or any media outlet. All these media and their employees are but the outer layer of the onion, the means by which messages are sent and people controlled.  These companies and their employees do what they are told, whether explicitly or implicitly, for they know it is in their financial interest to do so.  If they do not play their part in this twisted and intricate propaganda game, they will suffer. They will be eliminated, as are pesky individuals who dare peel the onion to its core. For each media company is one part of a large interconnected intelligence apparatus – a system, a complex – whose purpose is power, wealth, and domination for the very few at the expense of the many.  The CIA and media as parts of the same criminal conspiracy.

To argue that the Silicon valley companies do not want to censor but are being pressured by the legacy corporate media does not make sense.  These companies are deeply connected to U.S. intelligence agencies, as are the NY Times, CNN, NBC, etc.  They too are part of what was once called Operation Mockingbird, the CIA’s program to control, use, and infiltrate the media.  Only the most naïve would think that such a program does not exist today.

In Surveillance Valleyinvestigative reporter Yasha Levine documents how Silicon valley tech companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Google are tied to the military-industrial-intelligence-media complex in surveillance and censorship; how the Internet was created by the Pentagon; and even how these shadowy players are deeply involved in the so-called privacy movement that developed after Edward Snowden’s revelations.  Like Valentine, and in very detailed ways, Levine shows how the military-industrial-intelligence-digital-media complex is part of the same criminal conspiracy as is the traditional media with their CIA overlords. It is one club.

Many people, however, might find this hard to believe because it bursts so many bubbles, including the one that claims that these tech companies are pressured into censorship by the likes of The New York Times, etc.  The truth is the Internet was a military and intelligence tool from the very beginning and it is not the traditional corporate media that gives it its marching orders.

That being so, it is not the owners of the corporate media or their employees who are the ultimate controllers behind the current vast crackdown on dissent, but the intelligence agencies who control the mainstream media and the Silicon valley monopolies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc.  All these media companies are but the outer layer of the onion, the means by which messages are sent and people controlled.

But for whom do these intelligence agencies work?  Not for themselves.

They work for their overlords, the super wealthy people, the banks, financial institutions, and corporations that own the United States and always have. In a simple twist of fate, such super wealthy naturally own the media corporations that are essential to their control of the majority of the world’s wealth through the stories they tell.  It is a symbiotic relationship. As FDR put it bluntly in 1933, this coterie of wealthy forces is the “financial element in the larger centers [that] has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.” Their wealth and power has increased exponentially since then, and their connected tentacles have further spread to create what is an international deep state that involves such entities as the IMF, the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, those who meet yearly at Davos, etc.  They are the international overlords who are pushing hard to move the world toward a global dictatorship.

As is well known, or should be, the CIA was the creation of Wall St. and serves the interests of the wealthy owners. Peter Dale Scott, in “The State, the Deep State, and the Wall Street Overworld,” says of Allen Dulles, the nefarious longest running Director of the CIA and Wall St. lawyer for Sullivan and Cromwell:

There seems to be little difference in Allen Dulles’s influence whether he was a Wall Street lawyer or a CIA director. 

It was Dulles, long connected to  Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, international corporations, and a friend of Nazi agents and scientists, who was tasked with drawing up proposals for the CIA.  He was ably assisted by five Wall St. bankers or investors, including the aforementioned Frank Wisner who later, as a CIA officer, said his “Mighty Wurlitzer” was “capable of playing any propaganda tune he desired.”  This he did by recruiting intellectuals, writers, reporters, labor organizations, and the mainstream corporate media, etc. to propagate the CIA’s messages.

Greenwald, Taibbi, and Hedges are correct up to a point, but they stop short.  Their critique of old school journalism à la Edward Herman’s and Noam Chomsky’s Manufacturing of Consent model, while true as far as it goes, fails to pin the tail on the real donkey.  Like old school journalists who knew implicitly how far they could go, these guys know it too, as if there is an invisible electronic gate that keeps them from wandering into dangerous territory.

The American Deep Stat… Peter Dale Scott Best Price: $23.25 Buy New $23.06 (as of 09:10 EST – Details) The censorship of Robert Kennedy, Jr. is an exemplary case.  His banishment from Instagram and the ridicule the mainstream media have heaped upon him for years is not simply because he raises deeply informed questions about vaccines, Bill Gates, the pharmaceutical companies, etc. His critiques suggest something far more dangerous is afoot: the demise of democracy and the rise of a totalitarian order that involves total surveillance, controleugenics, etc. by the wealthy led by their intelligence propagandists.

To call him a super spreader of hoaxes and a conspiracy theorist is aimed at not only silencing him on specific medical issues, but to silence his powerful and articulate voice on all issues.  To give thoughtful consideration to his deeply informed scientific thinking concerning vaccines, the World Health Organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, etc., is to open a can of worms that the powerful want shut tight.

This is because RFK, Jr. is also a severe critic of the enormous power of the CIA and its propaganda that goes back so many decades and was used to cover up the national security state’s assassinations of his father and uncle, JFK.  It is why his wonderful recent book, American Values: Lessons I Learned from My Familythat contains not one word about vaccineswas shunned by mainstream book reviewers; for the picture he paints fiercely indicts the CIA in multiple ways while also indicting the mass media that have been its mouthpieces. These worms must be kept in the can, just as the power of the international overlords represented by the World Health Organization and the World Economic Forum with its Great Reset must be.  They must be dismissed as crackpot conspiracy theories not worthy of debate or exposure.

Robert Kennedy, Jr., by name and dedication to truth seeking, conjures up his father’s ghost, the last politician who, because of his vast support across racial and class divides, could have united the country and tamed the power of the CIA to control the narrative that has allowed for the plundering of the world and the country for the wealthy overlords.

So they killed him.

There is a reason Noam Chomsky is an exemplar for Hedges, Greenwald, and Taibbi.  He controls the can opener for so many. He has set the parameters for what is considered acceptable to be considered a serious journalist or intellectual.  The assassinations of the Kennedys, 9/11, or a questioning of the official Covid-19 story are not among them, and so they are eschewed.

To denounce censorship, as they have done, is admirable. But now Greenwald, Taibbi, and Hedges need go up to the forbidden gate with the sign that says – “This far and no further” – and jump over it.  That’s where the true stories lie.  That’s when they’ll see the worms squirm.
