Nikki Haley Took Down The Wrong Flag

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

Pub_2013_2013_The Rain God SmallWhen Nikki Haley was born in 1972 in Bamberg, S.C., she could be sure that she would be going home in a few days. On that same day, I, who was born in Columbia, S.C., in 1949, was a Naval Intelligence operative in a place that offered no assurance that I would ever go home alive.

Nikki grew up, left Sikhism behind and converted to Christianity as a Methodist, and graduated from Clemson in 1994. She followed the Script for success and has been rewarded. She learned the lines, said them perfectly, and gained accolades and awards. She did not, however, gain insight.

When undereducated, uninformed, racist community activists, demanded that she take down the flag that was a symbol of oppression, she reacted. But her bloodline harks back to Punjab, India. So it is understandable that she would not know the right flag to remove.

My bloodline runs all the way from Columbia, S.C., where I was born, to Clearwater, S.C., where my father was born. From him, I learned the hardships that befell his family and their neighbors following the Late Unpleasantness. From him, I heard the sorrows of the vanquished. From him, I heard the anguished sound of the death of a federal union of States, bound by an express compact to which they had pledged their allegiance.

South Carolina saved the Revolution at the Battle of Cowpens and at the Battle of King’s Mountain. South Carolina was acknowledged as a sovereign State in the Treaty of Paris in 1783. There was no United States of America. South Carolina voted to have a federal union at Independence Hall, against those who wanted either a national union or a king.

South Carolina remained loyal to the idea of a federal union even after Chief Justice John Marshall usurped the Constitution and established a nationalist, not a federal judiciary. Marshall took away State powers in the court system and created national court supervision of State legislatures, an act that had never been allowed or provided for in the new constitution.

South Carolina remained loyal to the idea of a federal union even as Lincoln adopted Henry Clay’s vision of the American System. Clay’s vision combined mercantilism, not constitutionalism, and the existence of a strong, supreme central government that could effectively pursue a manifest destiny of empire. Lincoln made it clear that he was an enemy of the federal union and would promote a national union with the majority of power centered in Washington and the paltry remainder vested in puppet States. For many years prior, the North had discovered that it could heavily tax the South then appropriate that tax money for projects to be completed in the North. When Lincoln was elected, South Carolina made its final move to preserve the federal union: it seceded.

In response, Lincoln chose war. He did not have to do so. The South could have paid for any federal property it had appropriated. Lincoln wanted war to kill the Constitution and create a strong national government that he could steer to empire. Lincoln was not an abolitionist; Lincoln did not believe in equal rights for blacks. But he did need troops so he played the slavery card, much as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton do today with the race card. Their motives are as impure as Lincoln’s.

Lincoln succeeded in crushing the federal union that existed in the Confederate States of America. Later, these States were forced them to accept the all-powerful national government Lincoln had created to pursue empire.

That pursuit was not executed by the government of a federal union but by the national government of a stateless nation. Haley chose to take down the flag of the Confederacy, the last remaining federal union of the original thirteen colonies, and leave the flag of the real oppressor: the national government imposed by Lincoln.

Unfortunately, the cheering crowds hailing this flag travesty do not know the difference between a federal union and a national government. By the time the tyranny becomes clear to these blubbering idiots, there will no longer be South Carolinians of character to save them. They will all have become Nikki Haley Americans, stateless citizens of a national government that is no longer ruled by the Constitution or any memory thereof.

The Impossibility Of A Government Shutdown

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

The most popular and predictable political theater put on by Republicans, Democrats, and Independents (including sociokooks like Bernie Sanders) is a government shutdown. They do this knowing full well that it is impossible. Because the unknowing public will blame Republicans and reward Democrats, this morality play is absolutely irresistible to Democratic “strategists”.


The United States is a sovereign, sole-issuer of currency. The Congress can, and already has, issued massive amounts of money. This power is granted to Congress by the Constitution, is not restricted at all by the Constitution, and “money” is not defined in the Constitution. For a government shutdown to be possible, America would need for the government to be funded by a real economy. It is not so funded and has not been since Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. This act created a phony economy in which the Federal Reserve, a private corporation, buys government debt and pays the Treasury with credits to its Federal Reserve bank accounts; all government agencies have accounts which receive credits when Congress “appropriates” money and lose credits when somebody cashes a check written by a government agency. No actual money is involved. To control interest rates, the Federal Reserve releases money into circulation and the Congress, via taxes, removes money from circulation. Fort Knox contains only $350 billion in gold just for show and the Treasury does not contain actual money, it contains Treasury IOUs. This phony economy, which ALL politicians since 1913 have been running as a shell game means that the government can be funded WITHOUT LIMIT and therefore that the government can make war without limit.


The levers that run this phony economy are so deeply tangled in the Constitution (Necessary And Proper Clause, distinction between “debts” and “payment for goods and services”) and in federal law (Treasury rules, Bureau of Printing and Engraving rules, “face value” of securities covered by the so-called Debt Ceiling), that it is impossible to stop or even shrink the funding of government operations.

Regardless of political affiliation, all endorsing audience members of this predictable government theater deserve the thunderous applause of economic traitors as they lead America into the fires of fiscal hell.



Germans Loading People Onto Trains

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Pub_2013_2013_The Rain God Small

Mute the volume on the TV and watch the Germans loading people onto trains. For Baby Boomers it is chilling. In the 50s and 60s we found out what those trains had been used for in the 30s and 40s. All through school we had to watch the films, in class, in museums, at civic commemorations.

It is different this time, we are assured by smiling, clueless millennial reporters. The Germans are different now. Maybe.

But the moral shoe is on the other foot. The Germans are not doing anything immoral but the so-called immigrants are doing something very immoral and they should be stopped, around the world. They have left their friends and neighbors to endure a perilous fate while they pursue a better life. They have left their friends and neighbors in a leaky boat of crumbled societies while they swim away from the desperate cries of those they left to die.

These so-called immigrants are actually selfish, immoral interlopers who accept no responsibility for the social conditions they left behind. Since they did not accept the challenge to improve the societies they abandoned, they will accept no responsibility to improve the societies they invade.

Meanwhile, the Germans continue to load them onto trains.

For the moment, these appallingly immoral interlopers are the cause celeb of the pandering, equally immoral media. Remember, it was only a few months ago that these emotion-squeezing media types were deploring the lives of these same people when they were at home suffering from the terrible social conditions that they were nonetheless responsible for creating and maintaining.

What choices did they have? Work for change, rebel against injustice, fight tyranny. What choices did they make? Abandon their ailing societies to their miserable fates, pay huge sums to smugglers and take their troubles, and their abject lack of social conscience, to burden other societies.

Soon the pendulum will swing again and the idiotic nature of European social welfare policies will be exposed for what they are: pitiful offerings at the altar of history to cleanse the European soul of the horrors of WWI and WWII. The French are always one crisis away from releasing the violent anti-Semitism that runs just beneath the skin of French society. The Danes and the Dutch will rebel against the poor brown tide already stealing the produce of their erstwhile societies.

The heart-string-pulling media will go silent when fear of dissolution by the immoral, uneducated, socially sociopathic invaders brings back to the fore the Prussian character of the German people. Once again, Germans loading people onto trains will emblazon headlines as the solution that will save the Fatherland from the social pollution sweeping the globe.

An attack on social conscience, such as that embodied by the self-serving flight of political immigrants, is an assault on humanity everywhere. That is why these social sociopaths must be deported from the United States now. The results of such an onslaught have historically been disastrous and, in Germany, the trains are already rolling.




Control Government, Not Guns

Monday, January 21st, 2013

Even though children were murdered at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, the total lack of any journalistic standards in the American news media and the crass opportunism of fools on both sides of the gun control issue, conspired to produce The Standard Circus. In the center ring, reporters stoop to asking people how they feel about children being murdered. In the left ring, politicians wring their hands and declare that more must be done to control gun violence. In the right ring, politicians declare that nothing more can be done to control gun violence. Under the American Infotainment Big Top, not a single word of genuine outrage or true sorrow was spoken.

The stage was set for Buffoon H. Obama to lecture the world on righteousness and attempt to increase federal power even more—and he did. While the innocent children grow cold in their graves, jaws flap relentlessly under the Big Top. “Gun control, gun control, sis boom bah. Get rid of guns and bring forth Shangri-La. Gun control, gun control, bippity, boppity, boo. Give up your guns—your government will always do right by you.”

During every hour, on every single channel, the circus plays on inexorably. Glitz, glamor, pop, sparkle, look sad, we’re on the air. Expunge all meaning with trite expressions and the wails of the living. Make sonorous speeches but make sure that the photos that capture the most anguish get the most air. Pack up the Big Top and get ready to roll. When tragedy again strikes, we must be ready with our mikes. Besides, the news cycle has moved beyond these poor tykes.

The process by which the Big Top turns true horror into media content is appalling and disheartening. The surety with which politicians turn unspeakable sorrow into government control is chilling. The irony is that a very serious matter is at stake and not a single partisan of either side, especially Buffoon H. Obama, knows what it is.

Although, as the Supreme Court, recently made clear, the Second Amendment does confer a personal right to keep and bear arms, that is not the purpose of the amendment.

“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

Read it carefully and actually think about each word. The security of a free State is the issue here. Arming the citizens is the method of guaranteeing that security.

The purpose of the Second Amendment is to make sure that each State can protect itself from other States and from the federal government. The only way that could be done, as the Founders realized, was for the people in the States to be armed. A consequence of the Second Amendment is that the people will always have the means to, as Jefferson thought necessary, revolt once in a while.

Read the record of the debates during the Constitutional Convention. States were jealous of the power of other States and very fearful of the power of the new federal government they were creating. From the beginning of the Constitutional Convention, the States were concerned about having the power to repel other States and the federal government from their borders. To give themselves this power forever, the States added the Second Amendment to assure themselves of armed citizens. Armed citizens had been the means through which the States had won their freedom.

The government has guns that can fire 5,000 rounds per minute. That same government wants to restrict those who would oppose them to clips that hold seven rounds or less. This ridiculous balance of power is tolerated because Americans, despite clear warnings from our most important Founders, refuse to accept that revolution against or repulsion of, the federal government will ever be necessary again. The sad truth is, revolution is required now.

The control America desperately needs now is the control of government, not control of arms in the hands of its citizens. The deranged will always be able to wound society but it is only tyrannical governments that can destroy society. The Second Amendment exists so States may protect themselves. It is high time they began to do so.



Occupy Liberty Plaza

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

I was there when the Progressives destroyed the movement of Reflective Conscious in the sixties. Trust fund babies temporarily dressed in thrift store rags infiltrated a movement begun by intellectuals while academics, the clarion call for dogmatic conformism in the name of compassion, coopted what had been a genuine reaction to the self-indulgent nihilism of the Beat Generation.

Suddenly, what had been an earnest discussion of women’s rights became the moronic ex cathedra tautology known as Feminism, ontological inquiry into the human condition became drug-induced Zen, and serious scrutiny of engaging communist forces in Vietnam became the vapid slogan, “Hell no, we won’t go!”

My contemporaries celebrated the party at Woodstock as the dawning of a new age. Joni Mitchell and Crosby, Stills and Nash made a fortune from the legacy of the three days of stoned-out hard fucking in the rain. I helped arrange transportation for some folks to get to Woodstock but I did not want to go. I did not want to stand on the ground and watch the age of Reflective Conscious die in giving birth to the age of Who Can Say Because I Don’t Relate To The Plastic People But I Demand A Life Filled With Goodies.

The intellectual rabble drove out the intellectuals with their Progressive politics. But the rabble had no choice. You see, intellectuals are not people who read abstruse tomes of recondite philosophy or pretend that thoughtless expression is art. They are not products of universities because universities abhor and suppress them. An intellectual is a simple thing: a person who seeks the truth in everything.

The universities, the government, political groups, the rabble—all demand conformity with their pronouncements. Progressives demand it the most, and tolerate dissent the least, because they stand on the thinnest ice, remnants of the fashionable leftist fascism of the nineteen twenties.

Now the intellectual rabble have gathered on Wall Street for some drug-induced hard fucking while decrying profits and greed in between texting remorse on the death of uber-rich Steve Jobs on their beloved IPhones.

Give me a break. Make Profit Not Politics. Occupy Reality. Seek Truth. The winter of your discontent is looming and yet you curse the sun as if it appears in the sky just for you. Fill Liberty Plaza with conscious. Wait—first, I need a mocha latte, man.
