Sexy Saturday

I missed getting a chance to post Friday Femmes, so I am doing it tonight. I will be out of town for the next week so posting will be light, but I will get to it when I can.

The Needs Of The Many

The majority remember this belief from Star Trek. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. This idea was nearly put into practice on 9/11 when this F16 pilot was ordered to kamikaze Flight 93 (this F16 was not armed but if it had been, a shoot down order would have probably been given). The majority of moral dilemmas use the needs of the many versus the needs of the few, while completely (even deliberately) ignoring ways to win the scenarios without sacrificing anyone against their will.

One of the poorest constructed dilemmas is the crying baby who alerts the secret police to a hiding place, where the listener is given the option of letting him lead the police there or silencing him by smothering him. No one who presents this scenario gives the option of rallying everyone to grab blunt or sharp instruments and deliberately lure the police into an ambush, club them, grab their weapons, and then attack the local HQ to get more weapons, body armor, maybe even an armored vehicle.

The runaway trolly scenario, where pushing a total stranger onto the tracks to stop it versus letting the trolly run into several other people, is also total garbage. If the cable moving the car gets snapped (I am assuming this is a San Francisco style car on San Francisco style inclines), and the emergency brakes go, nothing is stopping it. If that were to occur, sounding the horn to warn others out of the way is a solution that does not involve sacrificing others against their will.

The concentration camp scenario, where the guard extorts a father into hanging his son on the pain of hanging the sons of others, ignores the intent of concentration camps. Concentration camps are designed to gather a hated group, extract what little value they have through physical labor, and once their usefulness is over, shoot them. Governments very, very rarely ever intend for anyone to leave a concentration camp. Instead of putting up with the guard's threats, acts of sabatoge, constructing weapons (there was once an inmate of San Quentin who built a fully functional submachinegun, which is on display in the prison's museum) or simply overwhelming the guards is an alternative way of dealing with that situation.

Sacrificing a few to save many is only supported by those who are the majority. The very concept that it is okay to violate the rights of others in an emergency should be fought. The founders went to great lengths to prevent majority rule.

Dialectic Materialism

Have you ever noticed that the gun control advocates focus more on the guns than those who use them? The only time they mention gun owners is when it is politically expedient to accuse them of being members of a conspiracy to profit from the misfortune of others, but even then, they ultimately go back to the idea that the guns themselves are the problem. They rarely even consider the fact that there are criminals.

Attacking leftists on the goals of the gun grabbers will go nowhere. The historical record is plain to everyone on both sides. Then there is the fact that the leftists have turned to guns themselves to fight oppressive (and generally other leftist) regimes. Spain's civil war is a good example. The majority of the anti-Nazi resistance in Europe consisted of communist movements, including the famous Italian and French resistance movements.

Where the left should be attacked is their belief in materialism. If you examine their propaganda, their essays, their books, you will see one thing that every type of leftist believes: that everyone is intrinsically good. From their view, violence only arises from either the deprivation of basic necessities, or the accumulation of too much wealth and power. From their view, the gun itself is a source of power that corrupts those who hold it, by giving them a superiority or even god complex. The worst variants of leftism believe that money is also a source of corruption and would seek to eliminate it despite the slavery that would ensue without a universal medium of trade.

They never see the rapist who would rather force a woman into sex than charm her. They never see the armed robber who would rather steal than earn. They never see the mohammedan who blows up a shopping mall because the Koran advocates the forced conversion of infidels and because the same book advocates the capture and rape of women and theft of the "infidel's" valuables.

They see the rapist as a symptom of the "patriarchy;" if only men were brought down in terms of wealth to the perceived level of women, then they would disappear. They see the armed robber as the desperate man who had no other way to feed his family, or as the troubled man who felt the power of the gun. They see the terrorist as the third worlder who lashed out funding and arming of Israel.

Ironically, this belief has resulted in more violence and destruction than every war combined.

Even Sarah Palin couldn't imagine the depravity of Obamacare's designer

From Canada Free Press
Democrats seem to love death.  Whether they’re yammering about abortion or “end of life” planning, they just can’t get enough of talking up the myriad ways people can exit life’s stage.  They always claim this is simply a discussion about personal responsibility and individual choice but, since they despise those ideals in virtually every other matter, it’s a hard argument to buy.


Enter Ezekiel Emanuel. 
Emanuel was one of the chief architects of ObamaCare and is, of course, the brother of Rahm.  Over at The Atlantic, he’s penned an article about his own death and he’s made a shocking announcement about the perfect age at which he hopes to die. While he very specifically rules out euthanasia, Emanuel says he hopes his ticker shuts down at the not-particularly-old age of 75.
The reason? 75 is, apparently, the perfect age for a human to buy the farm. According to Emanuel, people who live longer than that risk struggling through a less-than-perfect existence.

He says he rules out euthanasia, but what happens when the government controlled medical system becomes overwhelmed? A pandemic virus, a debt default, hyperinflation, and even the sheer incapacity of a government medical system can and will result in this, either overtly or by denying care as the VA did. Collectivist regimes always end up having to sacrifice others for the needs of the many. Action T4, the progenitor to the Holocaust, was designed specifically to euthanize the elderly and others who were a drain on the country's treasury, then moved onto political enemies.

Only ducks resemble ducks. Only ducks quack. Only progressives believe in the deprivation of free will and consent, for the needs of the many.

Order Followers



The majority of soldiers and police have committed atrocities under orders, and used the chain of command to justify their actions, and more importantly, distance themselves from what they have done.

The question is, why? The Milgram and Stanford experiments showed that 75% of people will do anything they are told, if they see those telling them to do so as authority figures, but that still does not answer why. Authority alone is not enough: few Americans would covert to Islam if ISIS invaded, regardless of the costs of non-compliance. Admiral Yamamoto would not invade mainland US.

The only type of authority that could convince anyone to commit atrocities is one that is seen as legitimate. What is legitimate authority? It is authority that is consented to and seen to act in the interest of the majority supporting them. While many believe that only voting republics could be seen this way, few totalitarian powers were established against the will of their subjects.

Left Poster: The Mind And the Fist. Vote for frontsoldier Hitler! Right Poster: Fight Hunger and Despair! Vote Hitler!

They often turn against those who put them in power, but only after riding a wave of popular sentiment. This sentiment can either be genuine or deceived, but tyranny only happens when one group of sees the slavery of another group as necessary to the security of the state, and by extension their personal security. Alternatively, egalitarian tyrannies arise from the belief that everyone including those supporting it have to sacrifice for a greater good, usually equal economic outcomes.
The irony about collectivism is that it is supported only when there is personal gain. Financial security for one’s family usually, or more rarely, physical security (rarely because totalitarian regimes always purge their enablers once they are no longer useful). Those tasked with stomping on the serfs do so because it benefits them either financially (anyone who says they won't follow illegal orders: find the pay table of that person's rank and benefits), gets them a more politically secure position in the new order (purges of police and soldiers always happen in totalitarian regimes), or because they have been duped into believing that attacking one group benefits everyone, and by extension, themselves and their own families.

None of this changes the fact that those who follow orders bear greater responsibility than those giving them.

Preventing this from happening should be the first priority.

Remind police and soldiers that terrorism and narcotics laws do not justify violating the very constitution they swore an oath to. The Bill of Rights has no exceptions, not even in war. This should be a grassroots effort, as any centralized opposition organization can become controlled opposition (the SAF and JFPO are good examples), or turn from fighting for your rights to profiting from the struggle (The NRA is a fine example). Show historical records of atrocities committed under orders and emphasize that every soldier and policeman chose to follow those orders. There is always a choice, even when others say there is not.

Attack the regime's legitimacy. This is the strategy leftist revolutionaries use. There is no moral-equivalency on this one: deconstructing legitimacy is better than having to deconstruct enemy soldiers through gunfire. Deconstruct propaganda, ridicule propagandists, refuse to play by their rules (again this has to be a grassroots effort), find ways to force the regime to drop its facade of civility.

Should all of that fail, then going after leaders could be the worst possible strategy. Authoritarian regimes build cults of personality around their leaders. Breaking the will of the rank and file to follow orders will have far greater effect, and it does not always have to be violent; simply presenting a moral delimma they cannot ignore can work (a crowd wearing yellow stars will throw off even the campus commie who joined for whatever reason). Though Alexander Solzenitsyen was right; few of the NKVD would be so bold if they knew they might not return home.

Navy illegally searched millions of PCs in support of police

From Infowars.

The Navy's justification was that because of the large amount of Navy personnel living in Washington, NCIS had the authority to violate not only Posse Commitatus, but also the 4th Amendment rights of millions of people, including ones who did not serve.

Obama's ISIS speech between the lines

Obama insists that ISIS is "Not Islamic" despite the fact that ISIS's flag matches the original of Prophet Mohammed. Obama insist that ISIS is "Not Islamic" despite the fact that ISIS imposes the Jadzia tax on Christians and uses rape and torture not only into intimidate, but also initiate captured men to become their Jannisaries.

More importantly, ISIS not not represent true Islam according to the propagandists, but Tea Partiers are still Domestic Extremists according to those same propagandists. ISIS does not represent Islam, yet is called radical islam, and is so evil that the anti-war left are becoming hawks and they are being joined by their establishment Republican buddies.

The citizens are rallied against an external enemy (they can be made up, but historically, the more genuine, the better a government can rally its people) and anyone who questions official government policy is unpatriotic. As time goes on, dissenters are increasingly scruitinized, then classified, then targeted. Adolf Hitler and the Nazis did this to the Jews, using the threat of Communism to unite the country and turn Germans against the Jews (while simultaneously sharing Poland with those same Communists).

Similarly to the Nazis being frenemies with the Soviets, the US is arming ISIS. Arming them and using them against a third party.

Attacking the messenger

I apologize for my unannounced two month absence. I lost a lot of interest in blogging, because repeating the same bad news everyone else was, well it was not fun. I will still post important news items but I want to focus on ways of winning.

This post from Resistor in the Rockies was inspiring:

Bulgarians Employ Rule #5 By Vandalizing Soviet Monuments


Rules For Radicals

* RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
What if that rule was applied to the people pushing statism to push them into irrelevancy or even out of their positions of influence? Common wisdom is that you do not attack the enemy's messenger. After all he is merely communicating the enemy's wishes and demands, right? Well, in addition to the fact that those carrying out orders are more culpable than those giving orders, propaganda is the heart and soul of the progressive war on rights.



The goal of any totalitarian regime is to gain control of others without firing a shot, simply because indiscriminate violence is not a viable way of controlling others anymore. Gaining legitimacy and support requires the use of propagandists as the foot-soldiers. The oligarchs use targeted acts of violence (SWAT teams against specific individuals, false flag terrorism, Piven-style riots) act as the artillery and air support, but artillery and air-support alone cannot win a war. To win a war, you have to capture and hold ground, and the very concept of free will is the ground that the enemy is taking.

Propagandists these days are no longer a ministry of "truth"/information or government run news agency (though the US does have NPR), but dispersed as pundits in the media and professors in academia and special-interest lobbies.

If propagandists are the foot soldiers, then attacking the messenger is a perfectly legitimate strategy.  The progressives attack messengers of dissent all the time.

Brownshirts



 From SHTF Plan.

In 2012, the DHS held a graduation cerimony of its own disaster response team.

For the majority, the notion that such a force would be assembled in the United States was nothing but another conspiracy originating from the lunatic right wing. But in October of 2012 the Department of Homeland Security quietly graduated their first corp of civilian responders under the new program. And since then it is likely that thousands more have been trained and deployed across the country to be called upon in the event of an emergency.
And if there were ever an emergency that required a military level response in the United States, many believe it is happening right now on the Southern border as hundreds of thousands of migrants make their way illegally into America. Because of the sheer number of people heading to the U.S. and the complete failure, whether by chance or by design, of the Obama administration to secure the border, America is now faced with housing, feeding, clothing and providing medical care for more people than it was prepared to handle.
In response, rather than deploy Homeland Security or the National Guard to stop the migration at its source, the Administration has instead set up makeshift internment camps, some of which put scores of people in a room the size of a studio apartment. As a result, disease has spread and civilian emergency personnel have been tasked with providing care.
But among the doctors and caregivers is also a private security force that has been hired to keep the peace. And according to several people working inside the camps, the security groups have turned their attention not towards keeping peace between the migrants, but rather, at keeping the goings on of the facilities completely secret from the general public.

“There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told me.
“We were under orders not to say anything.”

The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”
“It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said.
“Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”
She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.
“Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers.”
She said children in the camp had measles, scabies, chicken pox and strep throat as well as mental and emotional issues.

Federal court: police can break down door and seize guns without warrant or charges

From Police State USA
MILWAUKEE, WI — The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that it is not a violation of constitutional rights if police break down a citizen’s door, search the home, and confiscate firearms, so long that they believe it is in the citizen’s best interest.

A Doctor’s Concern

The lawsuit stems back to an incident that occurred on May 22, 2011.  A psychiatrist, Dr. Michelle Bentle, phoned police to report that a patient had expressed a suicidal thought during an outpatient appointment; the woman had received some bad news and privately expressed grief during a difficult appointment.
At approximately noon, Milwaukee Police were dispatched to search for Krysta Sutterfield, age 42 at the time, in order to forcibly detain her and commit her for a mandatory medical evaluation.  In Wisconsin, the mere suggestion of suicide is grounds for forcible police detention.
Police had a description of Ms. Sutterfield’s vehicle but could not immediately locate her; police checked her garage and it was empty.  Hours passed.  At 2:45 p.m., Dr. Bentle notified police that her patient “had called her some minutes earlier stating that she was not in need of assistance and that the doctor should ‘call off’ the police search for her,” according to court documents.

Confrontation At Home

However, police did not call off the search.  At 8:30 p.m., Officer Jamie Hewitt found that Sutterfield was at home.  Sutterfield answered the door when police knocked, but would not permit them to enter.  She told them that she did not need assistance and had requested that the search be called off.  However, police would not take ‘no’ for an answer.
“Unable to gain admittance to the house,” the court summary states, officers “concluded that the police would have to enter it forcefully.”  Approximately 9 hours had passed since the doctor’s concern had been reported.
The showdown continued for approximately 30 minutes.  Police requested backup, and Ms. Sutterfield called 9-1-1 to attempt to call off the pushy officers.  As the call was in progress, police breached her door and accosted her.
The recorded 9-1-1 call documented Sutterfield’s voice demanding that police “let go of her and that they leave her home.”   Instead, she was shackled and detained against her will.
Despite having no warrant, officers helped themselves to a “proactive sweep” of the woman’s home.  During the search, police opened up a locked, opaque case and discovered her pistol.  Officers seized the pistol, as well as a BB gun (physically incapable of taking a human life), and her Wisconsin CCW license.
Sutterfield was taken into police custody and to a hospital for a forced medical evaluation at the county’s Mental Health Complex; the state’s forced evaluations can last for as long as 72 hours.

Operation Choke Point: Government using banks to shut out gun merchants

Gun retailers say the Obama administration is trying to put them out of business with regulations and investigations that bypass Congress and choke off their lines of credit, freeze their assets and prohibit online sales.

Since 2011, regulators have increased scrutiny on banks’ customers. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. in 2011 urged banks to better manage the risks of their merchant customers who employ payment processors, such as PayPal, for credit card transactions. The FDIC listed gun retailers as “high risk” along with porn stores and drug paraphernalia shops.



Meanwhile, the Justice Department has launched Operation Choke Point, a credit card fraud probe focusing on banks and payment processors. The threat of enforcement has prompted some banks to cut ties with online gun retailers, even if those companies have valid licenses and good credit histories.

“This administration has very clearly told the banking industry which customers they feel represent ‘reputational risk’ to do business with,” said Peter Weinstock, a lawyer at Hunton & Williams LLP. “So financial institutions are reacting to this extraordinary enforcement arsenal by being ultra-conservative in who they do business with: Any companies that engage in any margin of risk as defined by this administration are being dropped.”


Benito Mussolini would be proud of today's USA, where Fascism lives on in big companies and big unions willing to do the government's dirty work.

Rule 5: Josie Outlaw




Leaked Documents Reveal Marine Corps ‘Urban Training Center’ Based on U.S. Town

From Inforwars

Newly leaked Marine Corps’ documents detail yet another military urban training center that more closely resembles a small U.S. town than a foreign combat zone.
MOUT
The document, entitled “Military Operations on Urban Terrain Collective Training Facility,” details the specifics of a mock 30-acre town located on Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.
Originally built in 1990, new additions to the facility, including a Baptist church, a police station and several farmhouses, have transformed the layout of the once “international” town.
According to the military whistleblower who provided the documents to Infowars, U.S. Marines at the facility have been tasked with training soldiers, law enforcement agencies and Homeland Security in skills such as fighting in wooded areas, urban patrolling, forcible entry and night fighting techniques. The facility is also being used to cross train foreign troops from the United Nations and NATO.
aerialmap2
An aerial photograph of the training center reveals the location of several new structures including a water treatment facility, railroad tracks and the aforementioned farmhouses and police station. Although the map makes no mention of the Baptist church, several accompanying photographs show the church’s location.
church1
church2
A seperate aerial photo shows several of the town’s other features including a bank, soccer field, a bridge capable of accommodating an “M-1 tank” and a high school. According to a 1989 press release that mentioned the facility’s original structures, the high school’s gymnasium “can be used as a holding area for ‘evacuees’ or as a detention center for prisoners of war.”
aerialchurch
The facility’s continuous upgrades perfectly illustrate the establishment’s public shift towards targeting conservative Americans deemed “extremist.”

FBI Visiting Gun Shops to Investigate “People Talking About Big Government”

If you see some Middle Eastern guy come in, you don’t have to be so worried about that. What we’re really looking for are people talking about being sovereign such as sovereign citizens or people talking about big government,” the agent reportedly stated.
Before the agent left the store, he handed the employee a flyer which lists paying with cash, buying in bulk, along with other seemingly innocuous behavior as suspicious activity.


The same FBI that ignored warnings about the Tsarnev Brothers and the first Fort Hood shooter is not ignoring the "threat" of people that just want to be left alone. Any of these SOBs question you, don't say a thing. You have no legal obligation to do so. You have no legal obligation to consent to a search. You have no legal obligation to give up your private property to them.

SOF Soldiers at Bundy Ranch?


There is no hard information on whether this guy is the same guy in America's Secret Soldiers (scenes from the documentary at the end of the embedded video). However, nothing would surprise me. If the BLM used former (or even active) SOF, that means the regime was expecting and possibly wanting a fight.

No-Win Scenarios

From The Captain's Journal (a radio host, not the captain)

Well, Andy, with a handful of minutes to spare, I have complied with your law.
Your hateful, unconstitutional affront to my rights.

After a year of thinking it over, of going back and forth, of deciding where duty and honor called me to be, this is where I am.

I am ashamed to say that fear was one of the factors in my decision. I am a public person, it is well known that I own an AR-15. I wrote a newspaper column about it when I bought it 20 years ago. I have talked about it on the radio, on television and in web broadcasts ever since.

Further, I’ve got a Democrat district attorney – whose election I opposed – and half the cops in town hate me. So if I don’t register today, there’s a good chance I get arrested tomorrow.

And with five kids still at home, I can’t afford to be the test case.

I’d be a felon, I’d lose my job, I’d lose my house, I’d lose my right to vote and own guns.

And you’d win.

The radio host says he will draw the line at confiscation. But when they start doing that, they will have set the terms of engagement simply by knowing who has the guns.

The regime is very good at giving the impression of a no-win scenario. This illusion is not just their greatest strength, it is their only strength. The solution: don't believe in a no-win scenario.


The Startfleet Academy made the Kobayashi Maru on the belief that cadets would attack the problem head on, fighting on the developers's terms of engagement. Kirk changed the terms of engagement in a way not even his best friend (Spock, who conceptualized it) could foresee.

Our enemies in the real world believe that everyone will cower under threats, or fight under their terms of engagement (fighting a minority resistance in isolated pockets). The regime is no doubt changing their strategy (which will have to be large scale) after the united front they met at Bundy's Ranch, but there is always a way to win.

Harry Reid calls Bundy supporters "Domestic Terrorists"






From Infowars.

During a ‘Hashtags & Headlines’ event at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Reid referred to Bundy supporters as “Nothing more than domestic terrorists,” adding, “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.”


Harry Reid, you need to gaze at yoursself in the mirror. You are the terrorist. Terrorism is using fear to push a political agenda. Your attempt to intimidate a family failed miserably.

Law Flows From The Barrel Of A Gun

The assault on Cliven Bundy's ranch, the assault on the Branch Dividian compound, and the assault on the Weaver's property are extreme examples of a situation that is so common we all experience it. Every law is enforced through the threat of violence.

Don't obey the law, then you get arrested or pay a fine. Those who refuse are either fired at on the spot, tased (those who have heart conditions are at extreme risk from electrocution), or a team of mall ninjas armed with weapons of war bust into their home at night, generally trigger happy enough to fire at anyone even remotely perceived as a "threat." Even minor infractions are ultimately backed up by a class of people whose sole job is to inflict harm on whatever is deemed to be a "threat," whether that "threat" is an unarmed elderly, or a small dog, or a real criminal.

What is law exactly? It is supposed to be a code of conduct to ensure civilized discourse in a group of people, so that no one may be deprived of rights, property or their own bodies. Today, that is called natural law.

Unfortunately, the term "law" can be rationalized to mean anything, just as "freedom" is. Think about it: many on the left see freedom as freedom from debt, poverty, uncertainty, and ultimately responsibility. Well, law has been twisted the same way. Instead of being a neutral set of rules, it has become the lethal enforcement of a group's moral view. The prevailing moral view around the world is that everyone's behavior must be regulated, and their property annexed (wealth is property too) to serve a common good. This view is not just restricted to Marxism. Fascists believe the state comes first. The majority of Muslims believe Allah comes first. Across the political spectrum are those who would censor the arts, believing that "decency" comes first.

This social contract fails because not everyone has equal needs and not everyone is altruistic. Unfortunately, this fact is not lost on those who believe that the common good comes first, and the solution is to use violence. Ranchers and "sustainable" power require a lot of space. Solar power, as feeable as it is compared to more traditional power, brings in more revenue than a single family ranch. From the view of the environmentalists, the Earth has more rights than people. So the troops march in.

Even natural law needs to be enforced from the barrel of a gun. That is why we have a 2nd Amendment. The only question is, are we so indoctrinated into servitude that we won't use it? The ending of the siege on Bundy's ranch gives hope that we are not.

Harry Reid: "It's not over."



The harder their jackboots stomp, the more the ice cracks beneath their feet. There's a lot of cold water down below.
