World Reserve Currency – China says yes.

Posted by Jesse on March 23, 2009

Bernanke: Oh no, no, no. No ones talking about a World Reserve Currency. We can print our way out of this mess.

Barack Obama: Geez, ya know. We’d be taking a stronger lead towards achieveing the goals I set forth during the campaign, but all these setbacks….this crisis, you know, we couldn’t have anticipated it.

Ron Paul: We are going to have a dollar crisis. I ran for Congress in the 70’s because Nixon removed the last remnants of the gold standard and I knew that would lead to disaster. We need to have sound money, move towards a new gold standard and abolish the Federal Reserve. (Also see: The Case for  a Genuine Gold Dollar)

Financial Times: China’s central bank on Monday proposed replacing the US dollar as the international reserve currency with a new global system controlled by the International Monetary Fund.

Jesus: In defense of anarcho-capitalism

Posted by Jesse on October 27, 2008

Excerpted from Jesus is an Anarchist: A Free-Market, Libertarian Anarchist, That Is—Otherwise What Is Called an Anarcho-Capitalist∗ by James Redford;  Molinari Institute on Market Anarchy

“If the history of governments teach us anything it is that such crisis is a regular occurrence, for governments by their nature tend toward instability. If it be asked Why then do we still have government?, it is here answered that it is because no viable alternative to government has been articulated by a critical mass at such a crisis, in that most people throughout history have accepted the deception that government is a necessary evil and could not conceive a better alternative.”

[Matthew 2:1–6]

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.” When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. So they said to him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet: ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.’ ”

“The story of Jesus’s life can in part be summed up as suffering through this unjust Satanic world system for having preached the Truth, with government being chief among the culprits of this Satanic world system. All one has to do is review the life story of Jesus to plainly see that government—far from being instituted by God—is and has been a demonic tool of Satan used to oppress the righteous.”

[11-Matthew 5:17,18; 12-Matthew 7:12]

“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.” [11] . . . “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” [12]

…..It is here where we find why it is quite impossible for any government to actually abide by Jesus’s ultimate commandment. The reason quite simply is because all governments do to their subjects what they outlaw their subjects to do to them. That is, all governments, in order to be a government, must enforce a coercive monopoly on ultimate control of the law—this is a necessary feature of all governments. All governments set up courts and enforce control over ultimate judicial decision, while outlawing others from engaging in the same practice. Thus, e.g., if a group of people become dissatisfied with the judicial services that the government is providing and decide to set up shop offering their own private arbitration and protection services on the market without seeking the permission of the government to do so then the government will attack these people and put an end to their competitive judicial services, and would thereby enforce its monopoly on ultimate control over the law. If the government failed to enforce its monopoly on ultimate control over the law then it would cease to be a government, but would instead become just another private protection agency offering its services on a competitive market.

…..It is for this reason that anyone that takes Jesus’s ultimate ethical commandment seriously must of necessity advocate the abolition of all Earthly governments wherever and whenever they may exist, as governments are necessarily incompatible with Jesus’s ultimate ethical commandment and diametrically opposed to it. In passing, it’s important for me to distinguish “Earthly governments” from what is sometimes called the “Kingdom of God” or the “Kingdom of Christ.” In the above discussion I have been analyzing governments as they are operated by men here on Earth—but as I will show, the “Kingdom” which Christ is to establish on Earth will be the functional and operational opposite of any kingdom which has ever existed on Earth before, i.e., it won’t actually be a government in the sense in which I defined above and will in fact be perfectly consistent with the Golden Rule. ”

my maine state convention comments reproduced (copy/paste)

Posted by Jesse on May 5, 2008

advice to future conventions goers. spend your time focusing on what is profoundly different about ron paul. make them think. ask for the people’s support. tell them why we need their support. others will come and help if they can better understand why we support ron paul. no one else is telling them. the party line is being shoved down everyone’s throats. the conventions goers will support you. the real conspiracy is that “they” who ask for “party unity” are telling people that the paul people are trying to “disrupt” or “take over” the conventions. the truth is that we need help. we want their support. “they” are claiming we are outsiders. that is the real conspiracy. this couldn’t be farther from the truth. let them know that this is not about “party”, it is about the state of the nation.

taken from http://politickerme.com/
————————
good job paul people. there are more people that would support you all. i can see now why people don’t want to waste their time at such an event. the party line business is a threat to the nation.
democrat or republican? doesn’t matter at this point. how bad will things get? what is it that will bring some people together to tackle the pressing issues? i think ron paul better represents the precipice for such a notion than any of the top 3 candidates.

party unity? what hacks. none of the three have my vote. they can all get what’s coming to them. why subsidize bad behavior?
the (R)s failed miserably in representing their principles they claim to uphold. and succeeded greatly in being seduced by fear and manipulation. i know if they had more facts they would make a better choice. i can’t believe that they are content with the same old leadership, that delegate list is just plain insanity.

outside politics, as neighbors, you’ve got my support. within the party realm you can all bite me. that convention was representative of a sickness. cleanse yourself. open your ears. do whats best for the nation, all nations, and be good republicans, not party hacks.

the only two threats i heard mentioned at the convention were terrorists and democrats. that’s real intelligent. humrous, but ignorant. hence, that what we’ll get for leadership. sound like george bush al over again. “people get the government they ask for.”
————————-
why is it that the one man whos top contributors come from the army, navy, and air force not the republican candidate? why is it that the one man who votes according to the consitution every single time isn’t good enough?

i’ll tell you why. because the powers that be shut him down. the “liberal media” shut him down. most people didn’t get to hear him until it is now too late. and the nation is going to hurt because of it.

why is it that the one man who can actually explain what’s happening financially in the world and would actuallly reduce spending shown to the side door?

because the republican party at that convention sacrificed truth for unity.

Since they couldn’t take over the GOP, maybe they can try at the Democratic convention next. They’re all really Libertarians anyway.

[my response]
libertarian=small government

ronald reagan: “”If you analyze it, I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.”

as Ron Paul says: “The Constitution is very libertarian. The Constitution was meant to restrain the government and not restrain the people.”

Besides. Hasn’t Ron Paul been elected as a republican for every term that he has served? Hasn’t he recieved more campaign cash from active military servicemen than any other candidate? Why do you suppose that is?

Good conspiracy, bad theory, and the DC complex.

The Conspiracy Theory of History Revisited
by Murray N. Rothbard
This article originally appeared in Reason, April 1977, pp. 39–40.
An excerpt.
“There are, of course, good conspiracy analysts and bad conspiracy analysts, just as there are good and bad historians or practitioners of any discipline. The bad conspiracy analyst tends to make two kinds of mistakes, which indeed leave him open to the Establishment charge of “paranoia.” First, he stops with the cui bono; if measure A benefits X and Y, he simply concludes that therefore X and Y were responsible. He fails to realize that this is just a hypothesis, and must be verified by finding out whether or not X and Y really did so. (Perhaps the wackiest example of this was the British journalist Douglas Reed who, seeing that the result of Hitler’s policies was the destruction of Germany, concluded, without further evidence, that therefore Hitler was a conscious agent of external forces who deliberately set out to ruin Germany.) Secondly, the bad conspiracy analyst seems to have a compulsion to wrap up all the conspiracies, all the bad guy power blocs, into one giant conspiracy. Instead of seeing that there are several power blocs trying to gain control of government, sometimes in conflict and sometimes in alliance, he has to assume – again without evidence – that a small group of men controls them all, and only seems to send them into conflict.”

The State of Conspiracy
by Andrew Ward [February 23, 2008]

So I’ve been living and working in Mordor for about half a year. The experience has been quite illuminating. I realized right off the subsidized-bat that I wasn’t in Kansas anymore when I saw the King’s crime of Taxation Without Representation printed on local license plates. Now that’s supposedly a protest slogan, but it seems more like a slave’s sick, self-deprecating joke. The highways are congested with cars and cameras, but the overpasses aren’t mounted by gun turrets, so the workers don’t complain much. For those who don’t or won’t drive, there’s a neat metro system where the trains run on time some of the time to all kinds of “free” museums espousing the progressive history of government. The parks are there for the people to roam, play frisbee toss, lick ice cream, and read the daily spin under the shadow of various pagan monuments. Meanwhile, the instructed Decider instructs the young armies to invade faraway lands full of sand. There are few worries over war among the diverse populace, for our fair and balanced press has confirmed that the best defense is a blitzkrieg offense. Civilizing these countries through a barrel of a gun with American Democracy is not just for the common good of our infallible nation, but for the world good as well.

I have front row seats to the madness of post-9-11 Washington D.C. The overtly fascist overdrive of the U.S. government has twisted an already backwards nation into a Homeland of Terror. Most of the happy people say the loss of freedom is justified because we obviously “need to be safe from the gang of cavemen.” However, there are those brazen individuals who are more concerned with domestic black helicopters than “the gang of cavemen.” Unanswered questions in the 9-11 Commission Report have led to the creation of quite a few theories revolving around September 11th. But mainstream inputs have already debunked all that Conspiracy Theory rubbish… haven’t they? Hologram planes aside, one or more of the following is true about that tragic day: the government’s past actions provoked the attack; the government was grossly unable (or unwilling?) to protect the country; or it was all just a huge, high-tech deadly magic show put on by very secret, compartmentalized elements of the U.S. (and/or foreign) government. Remember the Maine? Hitler’s Reichstag? The Gulf of Tonkin non-event? Is it really unreasonable for one to suspect the beneficiaries of war and government growth to have had a hand in 9-11? Could a twin tower-sized inside job actually be pulled off? Many folks were outraged with the New York Post’s April 12, 2002 headline: “Bush Knew!” (as if Dubya knows anything). But even the notion that September 11th was an inside job orchestrated solely by the Bush administration ignores the Oligarchy, which has dominated the United States for over a century, regardless of which puppet is in office.

For multiple reasons, I’ve had the opportunity to listen to all kinds of so-called “Conspiracy Theorists” over the phone. Many of them inform me that we’re being listened-in on by They. So goons from NSA or DHS put food on the table by monitoring… me?! I’m flattered! But I’m hearing deep anti-Establishment stuff here, so are They really dumb enough to let this conversation go unmonitored? Anyway, I’m lectured about fluorinated water and the vaccinations with mercury. This troubles me, because I like water and my mom made sure I received every vaccination. Others say I must watch Zeitgeist and Loose Change, for both these online flicks have all the Answers. I’m also told about the founders being Free Masons and then I see the map of the Executive Mansion resting at the top of a city street pentagram. Well… I always suspected that Satan’s power flows through the White House. And what’s this about the U.S. still being under the Martial Law enacted by President Lincoln? No wonder that neo-Confederate Tom DiLorenzo hates Honest Abe so much! These conversations warp me into a dimension where my birth certificate legally handed me over to the “State” of D.C.’s jurisdiction. The task is now to reclaim my legal sovereignty from the U.S. Corporation and to escape the Uniform Commercial Code, the Elite’s shadow legal system that redundantly enslaves us all through a web of buried technicalities. But even as I reach as high as I can for the pyramid’s peak, it is, much to the delight of the owl-worshipping aristocracy, always out of reach.

Have you heard the conspiratorial view of the first through third national banks, where the good ol’ U.S. of A is little more than a sovereign-in-name-only satellite for the British Empire? In this story, Andrew Jackson is hailed as the greatest American ever. Five months after the expiration of the first U.S. Bank’s charter in 1811, Americans would find the British burning down the White House (hallelujah!). However, a miraculous post-war stand by General Jackson in New Orleans sent those Red Coats reeling. Two years after the war’s end in 1814, the privately owned Second Bank’s charter is authorized by then president James Madison, so in 1832 it’s up to president Jackson to veto the rebirth of the dragon-demon from hell. Perhaps Jackson was aware that Mayer Amschel Rothschild once said, “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”? Unfortunately for you and me, “Old Hickory” was not around to stop the banker’s secret 1910 Jekyll Island meeting where legislation to cartelize the banking industry was crafted. These bankers, out of the goodness of their hearts, had their men in Congress push for the “much-needed” Federal Reserve Act, which eventually passed in December of 1913 during the administration of their pet president, Woodrow Wilson.

Let’s now take a friendly visit to the generally subversive Council on Foreign Relations, a globalist policy club for the elites founded in 1919 by president Wilson’s right hand man and soul mate, Colonel Edward Mandel House. For almost a 100 years now, CFR members have included the heads of academia, law, media, insurance and especially finance; and every presidential administration since the 1920s has been dominated by CFR members. According to Alex Jones, the mission of the Council on Foreign Relations is to destroy the United States. While I’m not a fan of fronts for the House of Morgan and Rockefeller, does anyone really believe CFR members like Dan Rather are aware of, say, Cecil Rhodes’ American Round Table group? That aside, only 0.001% of the U.S. population can claim membership to the Council on Foreign Relations. With one exception, every media anointed presidential front-runner in this election is a proud, card-carrying member of the highly exclusive CFR. The Huckster is that exception, but the Establishment needed a relative outsider to don the robes of conservative savior. They’d take anybody but that kooky, crackpot Ron Paul. You should all know the media’s song:

Long shot, 9-11 Truther, Ron Paul. Crackpot, Libertarian, Ron Paul. Long shot, Neo-Nazi, Ron Paul!

*End Transmission*

It has long been the dream of powerful men to possess Earth. Throughout history rulers of many a great empire have tried to conquer what they figured was the whole thing. These mad dogs were not raised to be content with the power that they merely inherited. No, the father to son line is always, “There are always more sheep to shepherd.” And thanks to technology, this ant world of ours is becoming a much more manageable ant farm. The State, their corporate beneficiaries and financial masters have managed to sell mercantilism and paper money to the whole world with the goal of obtaining total control. These powers use the United States as the military engine for their New World Order; and a militaristic Empire that the world despises is easily disposable down the road, along with all those silly notions of sovereignty. One hears this and replies “Oh, so you believe in the Illuminati!” Not knowing much about Adam Weishaupt, I explain the long history of the international banking cartel, the socialist tax-exempt foundations and all about the State-media, but their programming responds snidely with “Conspiracy Theorist.”

So while I may never acquire the all-seeing Eye’s view of the Puzzle, I think it’s pretty clear that Conspiracy is a dirty word for a reason: the Establishment engages in conspiratorial acts on a daily basis. It would be foolish for They not to publish loads of worthless historical facts, promote stereotypes along with skin-deep diversity, teach dismal sciences, and report misinformation in order to divide, distract, and mislead the serfs. Think of the armies of dumbed-down children ushered into their local brainwashing center for at least eight mind-numbing hours. Fortunately for Liberty, most don’t finish their homework on so-called market failure. But for “adults” there’s that old, Banker-financed Marxist child’s fable of the Proletariat vs. Bourgeoisie which has crowded out the more accurate, generalized depiction of our situation: the ruling class vs. We, the People. It should be of no surprise that libertarians are widely seen by their fellow peons as poor-hating, ego-worshipping children who just want more of Society’s money.

Maybe this is just the chemtrails talking, but “Conspiracy Theorists” are not crazy for wanting to expose the men behind the curtain. The real crazies are the statists blinded by the curtain of red, white, and blue.
