SK: Political Messiahs In Tailored Suits


Read please the latest from Sultan Knish.

Excerpt:

***
…When a nation’s leaders are corrupt, then the nation can be saved, but when the people worship them, then all is truly lost. In the coming time, we will have to determine who will go forth to stand for us in the district, the state and the nation. And balancing pragmatism against principles, having done the best we can, cast our die and hope that a higher power will guide our hand.

But all this depends on keeping a clear head when we play the game and on remembering that our cause is not the man, but the idea of freedom. We do not labor to find ourselves a better master, but to make ourselves the masters of those who would rule over us. And if we fail to do that, if we close our eyes, then our blindfolds will become our chains.

And those we should command will rule over us instead…

Spartacus: The Rhetoric Heats Up


Spartacus notes the rhetorical escalation by Congressional Black Caucus member Congresswoman Frederica Wilson.

If she and her ilk think the invertebrate, Establishment-captured “Tea Party” is the enemy, what do you think they would be willing to do to folks who believe that government at all levels should be slashed by fifty percent or more, with the remainder constrained in both power and compensation to the functional equivalents of under-assistant West Coast promotion dweebs?

100 million or more of your Free Sh*t Army “countrymen” want you and your tribe plundered and/or beaten into submission.

Or dead.

Remember that.

Charles Dyer: Request For Assistance


From J. Croft:

Hello.

I’m contacting you about Dyerpalooza; this is a nationwide fundraiser and celebration for the American political dissident and fugitive Charles Dyer/aka July4Patriot. I know he’s not your regular beat but he had his home and all his exculpatory evidence burned the Friday before his court date, so rather than submit to being railroaded he’s on the run.

Tentatively it’s set for September 9th or 10th-don’t have a on site venue or internet venue either, but provided would you consider participating either where you’re at with cyberlink to the central node, or perhaps at the main venue?

Our twofold goal is to raise enough money to pay off the bond on the Dyer’s farm, their legal bills and to raise awareness on just how he’s been screwed-there’s a silence on the media as they want to murder him.

If interested reply at my e-mail @ j-croft@graffiti.net

In Poker, That’s Known As A ‘Tell’


ZH: Chinese Think Tank Implies America May Be Falsifying Its Accounting, Says US On Way To Default

Think about the problem with fewer of the geopolitical trappings.

You lend Joe-Bob a hefty sum – say $100,000 – from your retirement account.

A few days later, your cousin at the bank tells you on the QT that Joe-Bob closed all of his accounts yesterday.

You learn that Joe-Bob has quit his job and has holed up on the outskirts of town in a hot-sheet motel with Jenny and Penny (a/k/a The Boom-Boom Twins) and a shoebox of Bolivian marching powder.

Do you:

1) Shoot yourself?
2) Shrug and sing along with Doris Day on “Que Sera, Sera”?
3) Wonder why The Boom-Booms wouldn’t go away with you to the Moose convention in Rapid City last year?
4) Head over to the hot-sheet and employ a little (or a lot, as needed) of self-help on a newly-accelerated loan repayment schedule?

Prediction: High-quality Chinese cuisine to reach mass availability across the former US of A over the next ten years.

Think you’ll be allowed access to the dumpster behind the resturant?

Oh, and for those of you who are shocked to think that the American government could be dummying up its financial and economic data, I give you John Williams; start your reading here.

The Brutal Dilemma: Underestimating The Free Sh*t Army


Vanderleun links to this piece on a partial explanation for the reluctance to cut budgets at the FedGov level.

Read the comments at each site as well.

But honestly, kids – it ain’t about the FedGov minions whose ricebowls would be scattered.

It’s all about the FSA.

Can’t cut ’em off, or they’ll riot.

Can’t keep paying ’em, or eventually, there will be no money for anything.

That is the true ‘brutal dilemma’.

And no one is going to do anything but keep writing checks.

Understand what that really means, and prepare to repel boarders in your neighborhoods.

Period.

PLA Declares War on Georgetown

Think about why the ChiComs did this.

Remember that the printing press that Turbo Tim and The Ben Bernank are using is actively devaluing the ChiCom asset holdings as they also destroy American purchasing power.

Do you think the Chinese Communist government, history’s greatest mass murderers, will take that financial raping without consequence to the perpetrators?

Do you think war between the anemic USA and the PRC can be avoided?

Can your wives and daughters shoot well, with both sidearms and longarms?

If not, why not?

Tempus fugit.

Word


Here’s a little sci-fi scenario that has a greater probability.

What if productive, intelligent people were forced from their indifference and culture of tolerance due to a survival threat from the hordes of useless parasites? What if they industrialized the removal of these drains on their means of subsistence and the very futures of their children?

The subservience that the would be masters seek in their populations does not always produce a docile, numb populace of forelock tugging serfs. The process can take a wrong turn, and produce a logical, calculating organic machine that is no longer bound by the restraints of humanity, charity or empathy.

They are idiot children, playing with razor blades. Blood must flow in this scenario. The leftist, self-righteous greens will get their wish.

Sort of.

RTC: Post-Rally Flash


All well.

Good turnout, including quite a few from the several States.

Good speeches.

Good weather.

LEOs acting as peace officers only.

Thanks to all who came and/or were there in spirit.

Back on the road.

More later.

UPDATE 2050 EDT 19 AUG 2011: From a participant:

Decent showing with about 40 showing up… actually quite pitiful and surprising, considering the times.

As usual we had the RTC “regulars” and citizens from all walks: black, white, men, women, young and old. During the rush hour traffic we handed out Pocket Constitutions and information on the “Constitutional Carry” push for next year.

We had an active crowd working the sidewalk passing out the literature and making contact with the citizens that were walking and driving by. We got quite a few thumbs up and honks from fellow patriots, along with a couple thumbs down and some disdainful head-shaking… most likely ObamaBots.

We had some speakers including John Brigham who set up the event, [Concerned American] of WRSA and a few others, had a great time meeting and talking to fellow activists, including some patriots from as far away as Texas and North Carolina.

On Leadership

Quote Of The Week

(graphic courtesy of The Cliffs of Insanity)

…Finally, one more time because I get the very strong sense that most people in this country simply aren’t comprehending the financial situation: NO FINANCIAL INSTRUMENT that is based on “paper”, “contracts”, “notes” or “promises” is safe.

Zeros and ones on computer servers are NON-EXISTENT ENTITIES that, up until this point, have been deemed by society to have value and meaning based upon the full faith and credit of the United States government and the financial system as a whole. We now know that the United States Government is completely DEVOID of faith OR credit, is totally insolvent, and is populated by the scum of the known universe. The same pretty much goes for the financial system. Moving your stock holdings from one portfolio profile to another, or from stocks to bonds, or even from stocks to cash is not really accomplishing the objective, which is to become as far removed from promise-based instruments as possible (emphasis added – WRSA).

If and when the big poop hits the big fan, the only things that will have any value whatsoever are things that you can physically stand in front of with a long gun and defend. And I’m dead serious. You can’t physically defend zeroes and ones on a computer server. You can’t even defend those pieces of paper that say “Federal Reserve Note” across the top, because the government can render those worthless without having to physically confiscate them simply by printing trillions more of them . . . which they already have done and are getting ready to do any day now.

Long guns (Not handguns, people. You don’t fight wars with pistols.), ammunition, freeze-dried food or MREs, water, water, water, fuel, medications, more guns, more ammo, more water, barter currencies (silver coinage), wealth-storing currencies (gold), more guns and more ammo – these things you can physically defend.

Therefore, they are REAL ASSETS…
