America’s Color Revolution   Leave a comment

I’m starting to really wonder what’s going on.

Image result for image of United States color revolutionJason Kessler, the organizer of the August 12th alt-Right march in Charlottsville, VA, used to be an Occupy Wall Street organizer. He claims he’s changed his mind, but it’s well-known by those who study fringe groups, that the neo-Nazi groups have been thoroughly infiltrated by Department of Justice agents. Does that mean the march was planned by undercover agents for a reason that hasn’t been stated? You could wonder … which I do.

On the other side, who organized the masked, club-wielding Antifa counter-protesters? It’s not a spontaneous movement. Among the organizers is the Revolutionary Communist Party.  Check out their website because it’s important to know what these folks believe and what they want.

RevCom is planning a series of marches starting in November (the 100th year anniversary of the Russian Revolution, btw) with the goal of forcing the removal of the Trump administration … and not just President Trump, but Vice President Pence and the Cabinet. That is, of course, unconstitutional, but yes, THIS is a constitutional crisis because it would set aside the established electoral process that we as a country have followed for 250 years.

In reading through RevCom’s website, I was struck by their goals. They want people to go out and throw bricks, beat people up and set things on fire because they want to replace the democratic republic of the United States with a communist junta. Among their ideas is to segregate the Southeast part of the country as a black-only state. Any remaining white people in that zone would have no rights. Which is one reason they want to tear down the statues and monuments now, because communism always seeks to control history.

So other weird things that I am just wondering about.

Rumor has it that the guy who drove the car was a schizophrenic and a big-time Hillary Clinton supporter. I used to work with schizophrenics. With the right words, you can manipulate them to do things that they wouldn’t do ordinarily. Who was pulling his strings? We’ll never know, but it sounds eerily like this other incident.

Today, there was a free speech rally in Boston. I couldn’t find out much about the organizers because their Facebook pages were overrun by angry vitriol from those not interested in a conversation about free speech. Today, if the news is to be believed, the bandstand was surrounded by opposition forces, so that the speakers couldn’t speak. How is that free speech? Will we ever know what the organizers hoped to accomplish? Probably not because of groups like Black Lives Matter, Antifa and Communist Revolution won’t let anyone they disagree with speak where they can be heard.

So, where are we headed? It sure looks like a color revolution. That’s where an uprising forces the removal of the (often) lawfully elected government to be replaced by someone (or a group of someones) who aren’t chosen by the people. Do we want the violent, club-wielding organizers of these groups to be in charge?

At best, if the entire Presidential administration is removed from power, it logically forces us to martial law — you know, like in Egypt. Because this country’s ordinary folks are armed, martial law is likely to ignite a civil war. And it probably should. Why shouldn’t we fight against a government that has been imposed on us?

I’m not calling for armed war. I’m saying that’s where it’s headed because the government RevCom is calling for would be wholly illegitimate and we the people reserve the right to impose our own sovereignty. Or should. I can’t imagine that people like me, who believe in free speech, would be allowed to exist very long under their hegemony.

I’m not afraid of this scenario. I think it’ll be a great time to be in the backwater of Alaska. But ask yourselves … would you be okay if a Communist revolution forcibly replaced the American government with a military junta bent on segregating us into warring factions within certain regional zones? You don’t have to believe me … follow the link and decide for yourself if you want Bob Avakian in charge of your country?

Stay Tuned for the Cover Reveal   2 comments

A Threatening Fragility, the third book in the Transformation Project series, will head to the beta readers next week. It should be published this fall. Soon, the cover will be ready for preview.

I recently took a couple of weeks mostly off social media to complete the working draft of the book. I reached a point where I recognized that maintaining my Twitter page was costing me time I needed to finish the book.

This book’s journey has been a more complicated than previous novels. When I published Objects in View (Book 2 of the same series) almost a year ago, I planned to turn my attention to the 3rd book in my fantasy series, Daermad Cycle, but I struggled to keep my attention on the project. I’m writing it and what I am producing is good, but I’ve had trouble concentrating on my stated primary project. I’ve written two short stories and revisited a literary fiction in my back catalog. Eventually, A Threatening Fragility won first place in this multi-pronged writing exploration. The point is to produce quality books, not to follow some predetermined publication schedule that risks causing writer’s block, which might impact my ability to produce quality books. This is the biggest advantage of being an independent author. My publishing cooperative doesn’t hold me to the same conditions a traditional publisher might.

If you’re a fan of Daermad Cycle, it’s likely you’ll need to wait until sometime in 2018 for Fount of Wraiths, but it will be good. Like fine wine, fine fantasy takes time.

If you’re a fan of the Transformation series, you can soon find out if Cai survives the Army’s search for him, if Shane kicks Rob’s butt for drugging him, if the farmers can hang onto their crops, and who is going to win the presidential wrestling match. Things are turning dark on the Kansas prairie. Come see how the people of Emmaus cope. For those unfamiliar with the series, it could be termed a libertarian apocalyptic. I don’t look for government to rescue people if society goes off the rails, but I believe powerfully in people being the heroes in their own story … individuals cooperating with other individuals to find their way to a better place. I also believe that human beings are varied in their skills and ability to cope. People who are nice in times of plenty may become evil when pressed by starvation or imbued with power. Come see how that works out in the book when it publishes sometime this fall.

 

Why Even Racists Need the Freedom to Speak | T.J. Brown   Leave a comment

TJ BrownTJ Brown

Found on FEE

Until recently, American political culture settled into a comfortable middle ground on matters of race. People knew what to say and how to say it, more or less. It was all very polite. Everyone obeyed the rules. This way you could stay out of trouble and avoid one of the most devastating accusations that could derail your career: the claim that you said something racist. If the claim sticks, there is no forgiveness; there is only a lifetime of suffering.

Last week, I decided to attend my first ever Black Lives Matter protest.Well, that polite truce was never a consensus; it was a coverup. And it is over. The proof is everywhere in evidence, not just among the Internet trolls who proclaim themselves champions of the white race

What Libertarians Want From Government   Leave a comment

Americans of all political persuasions want something from the government, including libertarians. But what libertarians want from the government is quite different from what liberals and conservatives want. Liberals want much from government.

To get an idea of just how much they want, just look at the new 2016 Democratic Party platform. Liberals, progressives, and socialists—all of whom always vote Democratic—want the government to:

Who Is a Libertarian? | Dean Russell   1 comment

5c5a0-caThis article goes back to the early era of the libertarian movement. It was also right around this time that the conservative movement found a voice with National Review. Apparently, there was more going on in 1955 than we learned in high school. Lela

Those of us who favor individual freedom with personal responsibility have been unable to agree upon a generally acceptable name for ourselves and our philosophy of liberty. This would be relatively unimportant except for the fact that the opposition will call us by some name, even though we might not desire to be identified by any name at all. Since this is so, we might better select a name with some logic instead of permitting the opposition to saddle us with an epithet.

Source: Who Is a Libertarian? | Dean Russell

Some of us call ourselves “individualists,” but others point out that the opposition often uses that word to describe a heartless person who doesn’t care about the problems and aspirations of other people.

Some of us call ourselves “conservatives,” but that term describes many persons who base their approval of an institution more on its age than on its inherent worth.

Many of us call ourselves “liberals.” And it is true that the word “liberal” once described persons who respected the individual and feared the use of mass compulsions. But the leftists have now corrupted that once-proud term to identify themselves and their program of more government ownership of property and more controls over persons. As a result, those of us who believe in freedom must explain that when we call ourselves liberals, we mean liberals in the uncorrupted classical sense. At best, this is awkward and subject to misunderstanding.

Here is a suggestion: Let those of us who love liberty trade-mark and reserve for our own use the good and honorable word “libertarian.”

Webster’s New International Dictionary defines a libertarian as “One who holds to the doctrine of free will; also, one who upholds the principles of liberty, esp. individual liberty of thought and action.”

In popular terminology, a libertarian is the opposite of an authoritarian. Strictly speaking, a libertarian is one who rejects the idea of using violence or the threat of violence—legal or illegal—to impose his will or viewpoint upon any peaceful person. Generally speaking, a libertarian is one who wants to be governed far less than he is today.

A libertarian believes that the government should protect all persons equally against external and internal aggression, but should otherwise generally leave people alone to work out their own problems and aspirations.

While a libertarian expects the government to render equal protection to all persons against outright fraud and misrepresentation, he doesn’t expect the government to protect anyone from the consequences of his own free choices. A libertarian holds that persons who make wise choices are entitled to enjoy the fruits of their wisdom, and that persons who make unwise choices have no right to demand that the government reimburse them for their folly.

A libertarian expects his government to establish, support, and enforce the decisions of impartial courts of justice—courts which do not recognize or refer to a person’s race, religion, or economic status. If justice is to be rendered, the decisions of these courts must be as binding upon government officials and their actions as upon other persons and their actions.

A libertarian respects the right of every person to use and enjoy his honestly acquired property—to trade it, to sell it, or even to give it away—for he knows that human liberty cannot long endure when that fundamental right is rejected or even seriously impaired.

A libertarian believes that the daily needs of the people can best be satisfied through the voluntary processes of a free and competitive market. And he holds the strong belief that free persons, using their own honestly acquired money, are in the best possible position to understand and aid their fellow men who are in need of help.

A libertarian favors a strictly limited form of government with many checks and balances—and divisions of authority—to foil the abuses of the fearful power of government. And generally speaking, he is one who sees less, rather than more, need to govern the actions of others.

A libertarian has much faith in himself and other free persons to find maximum happiness and prosperity in a society wherein no person has the authority to force any other peaceful person to conform to his viewpoints or desires in any manner. His way of life is based on respect for himself and for all others.

A libertarian doesn’t advocate violent rebellion against prevailing governments—except as a last resort before the concentration camps. But when a libertarian sees harm rather than good in certain acts of government, he is obligated to try his best to explain to others who advocate those measures why such compulsory means cannot bring the ends which even they desire.

The libertarian’s goal is friendship and peace with his neighbors at home and abroad.


It is not the difference in taste between individuals that Libertarians object to, but the forcing of one’s tastes upon another.

Charles T. Sprading


The idea of governing by force another man, who I believe to be my equal in the sight of God, is repugnant to me. I do not want to do it. I do not want any one to govern me by any kind of force. I am a reasoning being, and I only need to be shown what is best for me, when I will take that course or do that thing simply because it is best, and so will you. I do not believe that a soul was ever forced toward anything except toward ruin.

Samuel Milton Jones


Liberty for the few is not liberty. Liberty for me and slavery for you means slavery for both.

Samuel Milton Jones


The institutions of civil liberty leave each man to run his career in life in his own way, only guaranteeing to him that whatever he does in the way of industry, economy, prudence, sound judgment, etc., shall redound to his welfare and shall not be diverted to someone else’s benefit. Of course it is a necessary corollary that each man shall also bear the penalty of his own vices and his own mistakes.

We are told what fine things would happen if every one of us would go and do something for the welfare of somebody else; but why not contemplate also the immense gain which would ensue if everybody would do something for himself?

Wherever collective standards, codes, ideals, and motives take the place of individual responsibility, we know from ample experience that the spontaneity and independent responsibility which are essential to moral vigor are sure to be lost.
