The Changing Face of Homelessness in America: the Former White Middle Class Professionals and Veterans (Essays around the case of Daiva Sanda

http://www.starktruthradio.com/?p=699  (hear Daiva telling her story on “the Stark Truth” Radio broadcast from Santa Barbara, California).

Attractive, Businesslike, Classy, Driven, Educated, Fluent, Gallant…. Homeless

Destroyed by the System

Is hers the new Face of Homelessness in America?

Even my friends in and from Chicago—their first reaction to her  phone calls and requests for help was that this woman must be a scammer.  Nobody just calls and asks for help.  Has our culture closed its doors to individual charity and kindness?  Do we all prefer to let the men in white coats take Blanche Dubois away?  She has, has she not, proved her madness and social incompetence when she admits that she has “always relied upon the kindness of strangers?”  I had a rather intense argument last night with a dear and close friend about whether institutional charities have utterly swallowed up all capacity for human compassion in America, especially in the Northern States and California.  I perceive a greater tendency for individuals to take care of individuals in the South and the West, and a greater distrust of institutional and governmental solutions.  I’d be interested in more feedback: who, among the Americans, are most likely to take in a homeless woman merely for the purpose of keeping her off the streets, as a matter of sharing bread and board in the tradition that Christ taught us?  And has the relentless press for institutional contributions “tax deductibility” and so forth chilled our hearts beyond recognition?

Daiva Marija Sanda (aka Sandanaviciote) is an attractive lady (see above photo) in her late 30s, born in Lithuania, who immigrated to America.  She has two minor children aged in Chicago, Illinois, which throughout the 20th century was famous for its large Polish/Ukrainian/Lithuanian population (Very few Americans know or realize today that even as late as the 17th Century, the Kingdom of Poland, merged in a single immense “Commonwealth” together with the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, as a single vast nation, stretching from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, and including most of what is now Eastern Poland, Lithuania, White Russia, Latvia, Ukraine, and parts of adjacent Russia, the Slovak Republic, Hungary, and Romania.  This combined Lithuanan-Polish nation was effectively the easternmost Nation in Europe (Russia not becoming part of “Europe” until the early 18th Century, under Peter the Great, from a cultural and Geopolitical Standpoint, or recognized by International Law as a civilized nation at all—Poland was truly the great frontier of Europe—and a vast nation, comparable in place and stature to that Russia later occupied).  

But getting back to Daiva, from her native land, she came to Chicago, which is basically the largest Polish-Ukrainian-Lithuanian City in the world, larger even than Warsaw (at least in the 1940s-60s) and much larger than Kaunas.

What Daiva has learned over the past several years is the following:

(1)     The United States does not value or care for white immigrants at all.

(2)     The American (Chicago Municipal and Illinois State) Police are corrupt and discriminate against white Christian people, being run largely by blacks and hispanics anxious to “get a piece” of white folks and put them down whenever possible, which is to say, whenever they seem poor or vulnerable. 

(3)     To be poor or down on your luck in the US is to be equated with being crazy.

(4)     The Courts, especially the Family Law Courts (Domestic Relations, child custody Courts) favor breaking up families and separating parents, even mothers, from their children, especially when there is no money.

(5)     The Courts exist largely to strip people of their money and leave them poor.  The Courts do not protect anyone’s rights except insofar as one person or another has money.

(6)     Above all, now that she has reached what she hopes is the Nadir of her journey, Daiva sees Americans as selfish and materialistic, unwilling and unable to help each other in times of distress.

(7)     Traditional Polish & Lithuanian culture (Eastern European Culture generally) has high standards of Social and Economic Altruism, and this is why (some modern sociologists have written) Communism first took root in Eastern Rather than Western Europe where Marx & Engels had envisioned it would blossom.

(8)    Altruism is all but unknown in the America that Daiva has seen.  Americans do not like to help those who are down on their luck—at least not in the North, Northeast and Midwest—Ironically, traditional Southerners and Westerners in are much better known for their hospitality, mutual support, and communitarian sense of responsibility.  

(9)    Private charity and even Public assistance are not available to adults without children or to non-Hispanic immigrants.

(10)   In a recent moment of crisis, when Daiva found herself on the verge of homelessness, she called more than a dozen crisis centers for Women and found that she did not fit any of the pre-set criteria for “charity” which were supposedly offered.  Ironically, given her bitter feelings about the legal profession, a female lawyer took her in off the streets and gave her shelter.

(11)   Daiva’s perspectives on America can be summarized in the single word “anomie” (“lawlessness”, with the special implication of lack of community norms—it is a Greek word [a-nomos] popularized by the 19th century Sociologist and Social Philosopher Emile Durkheim, who wrote about the rising rates of suicide and feelings of alienation in the France and Western Europe of his time…. and it is fair to say that things have only gotten worse.

Daiva has refused to give up hope, she has refused to surrender to the overwhelming message she is getting from our “post-Modern” America that she is worthless and of no importance, and that she just needs to get out of the way.

She may eventually give up on seeing her children again (she has not seen them in a year, despite the fact that no charges of mistreatment or abuse of any kind were ever made against her—the family courts simply favor destruction of the family.

She may eventually give up on recovering $300,000.00 in personal property which she lost when her apartment at 4922 North Kedzie was taken away from her despite the fact that she owed no rent, but merely because she moved out due to a lack of effective heat in the brutal Chicago winter—and she is now subject to prosecution for criminal trespass for trying to recover her property.  The Chicago Courts and Police just seem to want her to lose everything.

But she has not given up on anything yet.  She is considering leaving the United States.  She sees little or nothing worth waiting for here.  No good has come to her.  She is well-educated and speaks English fluently, albeit with a strongly pronounced accent.  At her “height” she was living in a Lake-View apartment at 1400 North Lake Shore Drive, one of Chicago’s premier addresses on the “Gold Coast” close to downtown Chicago—a neighborhood in Zip Code 60610 where the median individual income is $83,000 (compared to the national median of $28,000).  

Daiva’s portrayal of the selfishness and greed of Americans in Barack Obama’s home city of Chicago, of their unwillingness to help out the less fortunate, is dramatically at odds with Obama’s articulated care for the child immigrants at the Mexican border, for the rights of all who come to the United States to partake in the wealth and social services of this Country, and it seems it can only be a matter of Race—Daiva is a White Christian (Catholic) Mother, but she has been crushed in Obama’s own hometown of Chicago, been abused by the Police and Courts, insulted with racial epithets and degraded in every possible way.  In effect, Daiva’s story suggests that, in Obama’s America, Europeans are the unwelcome minority, and they are to be extinguished by legal abuse if it is at all possible….

I have been noticing every year since Barack Obama came to office that the face of homelessness in America becomes whiter and whiter every year, more and more veterans in particular, but also more victims of the family courts and the foreclosure crisis.  Daiva Sanda’s Former Home 6 April 20106 July 2011 Daiva Sandanaviciute’s Pro Se Petition for Custody of her Child

Was Judas’ Betrayal of Jesus any worse than the U.S. Episcopal Church’s Betrayal of its own English Heritage?

Today, April 2, marks the 150th anniversary of the end of the Confederate States of America as a viable political entity.  There were no memorials or eulogies.  The world, even the South, lives largely in a state of amnesia induced by foreign occupation and subjugated defeat.  We have betrayed our ancestors ideals of constitutional government and genuine freedom by tolerating the most corrupt and perverse government, and a culture filled with lies, that is humanly imaginable.

While serving as President of the CSA, Jefferson Davis once commented on the comparisons to be made between the war of 1861-65 between the Northern and Southern United States and the English Civil War between “Roundhead” Protestant Radicals, led by Oliver Cromwell, and the Church of England and its Constitutional Monarchy, led by the two Kings Charles Edward Stuart, I and II.

Davis commented that the South had inherited the noble Cavalier mantle of King Charles the Martyr and that it was at war with a nation of self-righteous meddlesome bigots.  Davis never understood the close relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Karl Marx, or the historically decisive nature of that alliance.   

But the fact remains that there is a close relationship between the Episcopal Church/Church of England, and the South and its heritage.  Almost all the leaders of the Confederate South, including Jefferson Davis, Alexander Hamilton Stephens, Braxton Bragg, Jubal Early, Robert E. Lee, Albert Sidney Johnston, Joseph E. Johnston, and John Bell Hood, and Patrick Cleburne were Episcopalians.  Major exceptions were Judah P. Benjamin (Jewish) and P.T.G. Beauregard (Roman Catholic).

On this day a hundred and fifty years ago, April 2, 1865, General Robert E. Lee and President Jefferson Davis evacuated the Confederate Capital at Richmond. It had been a terrible mistake to move the Capital from inaccessible Montgomery, Alabama, to Richmond, too close to Washington.

But today, on this sad sesquicentennial, I attended Maundy Thursday services at Christ Church Cathedral in the 2900 block of St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans, where Confederate General Leonidas Polk was First Bishop of Louisiana, and where that Southern hero’s remains are buried.

Yesterday, Canon Steve Roberts in his Holy Week Wednesday Homily had spoken of betrayal—Judas’ “betrayal of Jesus, of course, being one of the key events of Holy Week. Canon Roberts had spoken of the experience of betrayal in everyday life—“there has to be a relationship of trust, for betrayal to happen…..we cannot be betrayed by strangers who hardly know us.”

I charge again that the Diocese of Louisiana has betrayed the Memory of General Polk by condemning the freedom Polk (and a million other southerners) fought for, and for which so many hundreds of thousands gave their lives.

Polk is a gigantic figure in the history of this place. Even today his name has a visible relationship to this Diocese and to many a parish in this state. His picture is on the walls of Christ Church. His tombstone is the largest single monument to any North American personage at the right hand of the Great Christ Church Altar.

Trinity Episcopal on Jackson Avenue still has “Bishop Polk Hall” as its central and largest meeting place. I do not think it should ever rename that Hall…. because the name of Leonidas Polk is hallowed from Natchitoches Trinity Church where my grandmother Helen was baptized on South.

I ask today, as I have asked before—how can we be true to ourselves if we distain, if we dishonor our heritage?

Could Rome ever disown Saints Peter and Paul? Could Jerusalem ever forget James, the Brother of Jesus, and that City’s own first Bishop? Should England, Greece, Russia, and Scotland ever forget Saints Andrew and Saint George?

No more should Louisiana forget Bishop Leonidas Polk and the Constitutional Government of the Confederate States of America for which His Grace, General Leonidas Polk, fought and died.

No, Virginia, Obama is NOT a Fascist like Hitler; he’s a Communist, just like he says he is…..so are the Bushes….so don’t go around insulting the memory of Benito Mussolini, Francisco Franco, Sir Oswald Moseley…..and Senator Huey Pierce Long of Louisiana….

In my writing on this blog, and even in my personal correspondence, I often refer to the current system in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe as “Corporate Communism”.  I realize this sounds oxymoronic to some people—an inherent contradiction in terms, kind of like “Jumbo Shrimp” or “Microsoft Works”—so I thought I should make a clarifying statement.  May people realize that the United States is neither what it used to be in the past nor what it pretends to be at present, although most people would admit that we have gone a long way down the road to socialism, at the very least.  In February of 2009, right after Obama was sworn in as President for his first term, Newsweek Magazine trumpted on its cover “We are all Socialists Now”—-well, let me just clarify that Newsweek was not speaking for me, directly or indirectly, because I never authorized it to do so, and I certainly didn’t vote for Obama….
As for defining “corporate communism”, some people like to call it “Fascism” but I object to the use of that term as historically inaccurate and non-descriptive.  (Compare Aaron Russo’s Movie, “From Freedom to Fascism”). Many people who use this term intend to criticize the current status quo in America, but neither America nor any of the other Western powers are in any sense “Fascist” in the early 20th century sense of that term as used by Mussolini, Franco, Moseley, or even the followers of Huey Long of Louisiana.
Communism was a system envisioned by many 19th Century Philosophers and Economists but made especially famous by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in a pamphlet published in London in February 1848 called “The Communist Manifesto”—  and, up to a point, Fascism was a reaction against Communism and other forms of modern socialism.
The universal features of Communism, as crystalised in the writings of Karl Marx, are the abolition of the family, private property, and the Democratic Republican “Bourgeois” State (“Bourgeois”) basically referring to the “Middle Class” of productive tradesmen and women who live in cities.
“Corporate Communism” is what we have in the United States today: the government imposes an economic system based on consumer credit debt that effectively makes all citizens and residents of the United States slaves.
I call it “communism”, and it seems to me that this is the only appropriate label, because *(for all intents and purposes) individual property ownership has been abolished in the United States by a combination of predatory (high interest, inflationary), government sponsored financing FIRST ENVISIONED IN THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO OF 1848 as a means of abolishing or absorbing all private property by and through Central Banking.
The government has taken a stand against Religion and all the institutions and sacraments of Christianity in particular so that the family can be abolished.  And the judicial and financial attack on and the sociological and psychological subversion of the family and private property, and the destruction of the middle class, guarantee the collapse of all Constitutional and Democratic-Republican forms of limited government, in favor of the kind of Police State Despotism that Americans are slowly but surely becoming all to familiar with and accustomed to and accepting of.
This is actually the opposite of “Fascism” which protected individual and family ownership of real estate and other property above all other civil rights, favored the bourgeois middle class and its “family values”, protected traditional religious faith and traditions against atheism and psychology, and in general was “conservative” and “traditional” in its socio-cultural orientation.  Whether this is a good thing or bad thing, it’s NOT what we have in Modern Europe, America, Australia, China, or Japan (and its seeping all through Latin America and the rest of the world with lightening-like speed, so that “Corporate Communism” based on non-Capitalized Credit, can accurately be described as the current, modern “World System”.
I call the modern European-America-Japanese-Chinese system “Corporate” Communism because the government acts through Corporate Agents to accomplish specialized goals, but all these corporations are effectively part of and one-in-the same with the Federal Government.
In other words, the through a pretense that all property is held privately, just in the name of corporations (or because of, as a derivation or derivative of, corporate financing).
But these corporations (including all banks, all dependent on ONE SINGLE CENTRALIZED SYSTEM known as the Federal Reserve System, which produces the vast majority of “notes” used in every day commerce as “legal tender”) could not possibly exist without the government regulations which shape, organize, and in breathe life into their very CORPORATE being.
Without government contracts and financing and programs of economic stimulus (including the planned distributional and utility infrastructure) these corporations could not exist….
So the American “Corporate System” is in fact neither private and nor capitalistic at all.  It is merely a sophisticated implementation of the Communist Manifesto of 1848 which operates by and through so many veils smoke seen through two way and reflective mirrors that nobody even realizes what is really going on…..

Is America a Nation of Gullible, Useless Idiots? (Apparently, some Communists think we are Useful—like Obama maybe?)

  • THE RISE OF COMMUNISM IN AMERICA: A WARNING TO AMERICANS

    America is the last beacon of hope for the world and for freedom. If we allow freedom to slip away, our generation will forever be remembered as the generation that knew the most and did the least to prevent it. We have a moral obligation to educate everyone around us to the dangers of socialism, communism, Marxism, Leninism, the welfare state and big government. If we are to stop the destruction of what is left of the free world, we must force our government to stop funding and aiding the soviet military industrial complex.

    “You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.” ~Nikita Khrushchev

    “The goal of socialism is communism.” ~Vladimir Lenin

    In 1848, Karl Marx wrote and introduced The Communist Manifesto. It has been regarded as one of the world’s most influential political manuscripts. The manifesto offers an analytical approach to “class struggle”, offering itself as a replacement to capitalism.

    The Communist Manifesto

    The Communist Manifesto
    wikipedia
     

    Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov was a KGB Propagandist who defected from the USSR to the United States in 1970. In 1984, he was interviewed by G. Edward Griffin on the topic of subversion. Mr. Bezmenov shares his insight and speaks candidly about communism, the stages that must be completed before communism can take hold of a nation and whether he believes communism is a reality for the United States of America. Mr. Bezmenov sounds the alarm to Americans and warns of the dangers already facing this nation and what will happen if measures are not taken to defeat the Marxist-Leninist ideology.

    Some of the terminology Mr. Bezmenov uses in the video is not clearly defined, so we’ve outlined some of the terms beforehand in an effort to help you better understand the video. The information Mr. Bezmenov imparts is priceless to our freedom and liberty and should be mandatory viewing for educational institutions, at all levels.

    1. “Subversion”

      The term “Subversion” or “Ideological Subversion” refers to an attempt to transform the established social order and its structures of power, authority, and hierarchy; a process by which the values and principles of a system in place, are contradicted or reversed. Subversion changes the perception of reality and targets the populace of the enemy and is synonymous with psychological warfare.

    2. “Useful Idiot”

      The term “Useful Idiot” is a pejorative term used by the Soviets for people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause; a term that describes Soviet Sympathizers in Western countries and in the United States in particular.

    3. “Demoralization”

      The term “Demoralization” refers to a breakdown in the moral standards of a nation. People that have been demoralized are unable to assess truth and facts, even when authentic proof has been shown to them contrary to their beliefs.

    4. “Destabilization”

      The term “Destabilization” refers to the breakdown of society within a nation. Communism generally targets capitalism and attempts to break down the economic system which will lead to crisis.

      For further reading on destabilization, please see: Capitalism Destabilized – How Do We Prepare To Overthrow the U.S. Government. Or you can view the PDF.

    5. “Crisis”

      The term “Crisis” is exactly what you would expect it to mean. Once a nation has been destabilized, the natural order immediately following is crisis. Crisis is the final stagebefore communism is fully instituted.

    6. “Normalization”

      The term “Normalization” is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda. When the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in 1968, Brezhnev said, ‘Now brother Czechoslovakia is normalized.’ Normalization is the exact opposite of Destabilization. At this stage, the leftists, progressives, professors, homosexuals, Marxists, Leninists and any other group of people that helped to bring about communism, are almost always eliminated from the new society.

    7. “Active Measures”

      The term “Active Measures” is a form of political warfare to influence the course of world events through media manipulations and seeks to collect intelligence.

    8. “Disinformation”

      The term “Disinformation” is intentionally false or inaccurate information that is spread deliberately. It is an act of deception and false statements to convince someone of untruth. Disinformation should not be confused with misinformation, information that is unintentionally false. Disinformation is designed to manipulate the audience at the rational level by either discrediting conflicting information or supporting false conclusions. A common disinformation tactic is to mix some truth and observation with false conclusions and lies, or to reveal part of the truth while presenting it as the whole.

    9. “Propaganda”

      The term “Propaganda” is a form of communication aimed towards influencing the attitude of the community toward some cause or position. Propaganda statements may be partly false and partly true. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes.

    10. “Espionage”

      The term “Espionage” involves a government or individual obtaining information considered secret or confidential without the permission of the holder of the information. Espionage is inherently clandestine, as it is taken for granted that it is unwelcome and, in many cases illegal and punishable by law. It is a subset of intelligence gathering, which otherwise may be conducted from public sources and using perfectly legal and ethical means. It is crucial to distinguish espionage from intelligence gathering, as the latter does not necessarily involve espionage, but often collates open-source information.

    The following four stages must be completed in the order listed before any existing power structure can be replaced with communism:

    1. Demoralization

      The demoralization of a nation generally takes between fifteen to twenty years to complete. This is the time to expose one generation of youth to Marxist-Leninist ideology, unchallenged by any other political ideology.

      “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.” ~Vladimir Lenin

      There are six areas in which the demoralization process happens:

      1. Religion (Distract attention from real faith)
      2. Education (Get control of the youth)
      3. Social Life (Friendships, Families, etc.)
      4. Power Structure (Substitute elected officials with unelected people)
      5. Labor Relations (Unions are the death of natural exchange or capitalism)
      6. Law and Order (Change perception: Ex: A criminal is not a criminal but a defendant)

      Demoralization occurs in entertainment, the arts, the breakdown of the family, Social Justice programs like child support as well as political correctness.

    2. Destabilization

      The leftists/progressives are instrumental in the destabilization process of subversion, only to destabilize the nation. After destabilization is complete, they are no longer needed by the communist system. When they finally understand that they were used, they will become angry and revolt. There is no place in a Marxist-Leninist regime for dissenters and are usually eliminated from the new society. These are the people that Vladimir Lenin referred to as “Useful Idiots”.

      Destabilization generally takes between two to five years to complete and encompasses the growth of big government, the economy, defense systems, foreign relations and the promises of government entitlements.

      There are three areas of focus within the Destabilization process:

      1. Economic (Radicalization of human relations: fighting – Normal relations are demoralized)
      2. Law and Order (Society becomes more antagonistic)
      3. Media (Positions itself in opposition to society in general)

      It is interesting to note that “Sleepers” within the target country, “awake”, or rise up after the Demoralization process is complete and position themselves in jobs of leadership, such as: professors, law enforcement – within prominent public positions. These sleepers actively involve themselves in the political process.

      These sleepers, once awake and engaged, concentrate on creating chaos and strife within society. Hot-button issues such as homosexuality are made into human rights issues, demanding these groups be recognized and respected. Other issues that cause chaos are equal rights, abortion, economic issues, ridistribution of wealth (Socialism) and income inequality.

    3. Crisis

      After the crisis or collapse occurs, a violent change in power, structure, and economy takes place. Crisis can happen by either civil war or invasion.

      A crisis can take as little as six weeks to complete. At this stage, there is no turning back from communism and the fate of the nation is sealed. During crisis, the following will occur.

      1. Installation of self-appointed committees (Revolutionary committees)
      2. People will look for someone or something to save them. Government always has the solution
    4. Normalization

      Normalization lasts indefinitely. This is the stage when communism is fully instituted and the people within its society lose any rights they had prior to the takeover. Groups of people that fought so hard for rights during the destabilization phase, such as homosexuals, will no longer have “rights” and will likely be eliminated from the new society. The beautiful utopia the leftist/progressives envisioned will no longer be a reality.

    After contemplating the four phases of communism and weighing it against our current political state, it should be crystal clear that the United States is in the last stage of destabilization. If a major event, whether manufactured by the government, or real, comes to pass, it will surly be the spark that ignites and thrusts our nation into crisis.

    I consistently hear people asking the same question: “Why don’t the republicans stop Obama?” or “Why hasn’t Obama been impeached?” The answer is simple. We have a one-party system, whereby both the democrats and republicans are playing on the same side. What we see on the news is nothing more than political theater; it is disinformation. Both parties are working toward the same goal – communism.

    As you watch these videos, please keep in mind that Mr. Bezmenov spoke about communism in 1984; thirty years from the time of this article. When you consider current events and social/political climate in the United States today, you will better understand how and why our country is in the state that it’s in. Mr. Bezmenov’s words and predictions are eerily prophetic and accurate.

    45 Declared Goals From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen
    (Completed goals in red)
    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

70th Anniversary of The Dresden Holocaust  — Documentary Film — Was WWII REALLY “A GOOD WAR” for the World?

Complacency with regard to Conscience is NEVER all right.  I am NOT OK and you should NOT be OK with World War II or the American Civil War or World War I or Korea or Vietnam or Iraq I or II or Afghanistan—America and the UK really ARE the greatest purveyors of cruelty and destruction in the history of the world. And I say this as one who is fundamentally VERY PROUD of his Anglo-American Heritage—but PRIDE includes RESPONSIBILITY.  And I suggest that we should ALL TAKE and ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY for having inflicted MUCH MORE suffering on the world than we ever saved it from—the world has suffered a NET LOSS of Civilization, Decency, Freedom, and Moral Rectitude thanks to the American Republic and our government’s, our Rulers’, conduct of war since 1861.  Yes, the American Civil War was the first MODERN WAR, by which I mean it was not merely the first technologically brutal war to obliterate a civilization, but the first Marxist inspired war, and the first war lamely and falsely justified by claims of moral rectitude rather than mere ambition.

Historical Ignorance and Patriot Mythology concerning the “Fraud” of the American Independence from Great Britain

I had the opportunity to speak with Lowell A. (“Larry”) Becraft again tonight about the mythology of law circulating around the Patriot Movement.  

http://home.hiwaay.net/~becraft/deadissues.htm

http://libertyworksradionetwork.com/jml/index.php

So much nonsense, so little time, but I did think of a little outline concerning one of the biggest issues:  Are the United States really free of Great Britain?  (I can’t quite believe we’re discussing this during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama, whose father was an anti-British Mau Mau).

I hope that we can focus just one the English-influence and Crown Control question for this first topic, because I think that’s the “oldest” and in some ways most basic confusion, because some elements of the conflict clearly bothered and divided even the Founding Fathers, who led a revolution against the “Mother Country” of England:
(1)   During the Revolution: Loyalist Tories vs. Revolutionary Patriots.
(2)   After the Revolution: Anglophile Federalists vs. Francophile Anti-Federalists in and after the Constitutional Convention of 1787; essence of the conflict focusing on the question of government financing and the establishment of a National Bank; and the question of repayment of English creditors and protection of English property interests in the newly freed colonies.
(3)    The party lines were split between Hamilton & Washington v.  Henry, Jefferson, & Madison (with John Adams kind of in the middle).
(4)   Anglophile Federalist Hamiltonians favored centralization and the Bank of the United States IN LARGE PART FOR THE BENEFIT OF ENGLISH CREDITORS OF THE COLONIES—the origin of the “no impairment of the obligations of debt” clause in Article I.
(5)      Francophile Democratic Republicans favored State Sovereignty and a decentralized economy.
(6)   “Second American Revolution” Ended with U.S. Victory at the Battle of New Orleans 200 years ago—no reintegration with the British Empire—why would this war (more popularly known as the War of 1812 have happened AT ALL if the First Revolution had resulted in some sort of secret compromise with Parliament or the Crown?
(7)   Bankers’ attempt on Andrew Jackson’s life: 1835 correlated with the Jackson’s confiscation of the Bank of the United States, effected by Attorney General turned Secretary of the Treasury Roger Brooke Taney (who was rewarded by appointment as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court upon the death of John Marshall after his unparalleled thirty five years).
(8)   1844: James K. Polk sails into office on the motto “54’40 or Fight” regarding the proposed annexation of “all” of Oregon from Great Britain—compromise ended up with extension of 59th parallel—giving North America the beautiful gift of what is now called “British Columbia” and was, until the invasion from Hong Kong, the most English spot on earth outside of England.
(9)   1848: Communist Manifesto casts a pall over the whole world—crystalizing another whole aspect of the “English” Myth: the domination of English, in particular English Jewish Bankers. Communism was, in all the world, especially threatening to the European Crowned Heads and the Southern American Planters (*seen by Marx as relics of Christian Feudalism).
(10)   Rapidly, the English crown works out a compromise with the Bankers (Karl Marx was a member of the Rothschild Family on his mother’s side) and England rapidly grants full civil rights to Jews and begins to expand the Voting Franchise to workers, although this did not happen until 1867, after the American Civil War was over. England had its first Jewish MP within ten years (Lionel Rothschild 1859, partly parodied by Alec Guiness in the movie “Kind Hearts and Coronets”) and London has its first Jewish Mayor in 1855 (David Salamons, also the first Jewish Sheriff of any English shire–namely Kent SE of London).
(10)   So in 1861, America plunged into a civil war that radically changed the landscape.  England supported the South, by more than just words, but Uncle Abe threatened war on England, and for whatever reasons (such as the sympathy of the as yet unenfranchised workers, England was scared.  Queen Victoria was totally in private sympathy with the South but her beloved husband Albert of Saxe-Coburg Gotha was on the side of the North (and the workers).  Does this Sound like a situation where England controlled the U.S. in 1860?  At all?
(11)  After the War England actually PAID A LARGE INDEMNITY TO THE US for its support of the South and for outfitting Southern Ships as blockade runners and for the CSA Navy.  Was the US dependent on England in 1865?  Doesn’t look like it to me…
(12)  For the Fifty Years after 1865-1915, American Aristocrats defined themselves largely by their trips to England, education in English Colleges and Universities, or U.S. (e.g. Harvard & Yale) imitation of English College and University styles—this was a matter of U.S. Money going to England for Validation, to be sure, and also of U.K. investment coming to the United States, but the relationship was one of Equals, not of Colonial Office and Master.
(13) 1915  the Lusitania sank–some people say it was a fix, a false flag attack.  BUT, even after the Lusitania, and a lot of other moves, it took a LOT OF PROPAGANDA, and the Zimmerman telegram, to get the United States to join England and France in the War on Germany and Austria-Hungary.  Some say it took the Balfour Declaration and the support of U.S. Jews….who were mostly of German and Eastern European Origin….
(14)   But the simple truth is that IF the mythology were correct, if England or the British Crown still exercised ANY sort of lasting control over the former 13 colonies—by 1912 multiplied into 48 states with several associated colonies of their own—IF that mythology of continued British Domination were correct, the South would have won the War of 1861-65, and if there had been a World War I at all, the United States would have joined with the U.K., as did all the real dominions including Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, and the only recently formed Union of South Africa, in 1914.
(15)   It is interesting to reflect that, in 1912, American Colonies abroad included the Philippine Islands in East Asia and Hawaii in the Middle Pacific, both of which the U.S. held in competition with Great Britain for colonial power in the Pacific.
(16)   Hawaii, all its history considered, should have belonged to England if to anyone.  Hawaii had included, as part of its own flag, the British Flag or Union Jack, evidence of the close alliance between the Hawaiian monarchy and the British Navy….which ever since Captain Cook had been the instrument for the world integration and continued independence of what they called “the Sandwich Islands”…. put the Hawaiian flag side-by-side with the Flag of British Columbia…. or read how the Hawaiian kings and queens copied English royal and legal culture slavishly, in every way possible, and you will see just how different America’s path really was.
(17)   It is true that the American colonies due owe their legal heritage, language, and many aspects of their philosophy, to England, and it is also true that the Queen of England, as a wealthy private individual, has a substantial “empire” of investments all over the U.S., but so do the Imperial family of Japan, and the Royal House of Saud (from Saudi Arabia).
(18)    The Queen of England is one of the wealthiest individuals with some of the largest landholdings in the world, but the House of Windor’s private holdings and investments ALL date from the 19th century, NOT from pre-Revolutionary or colonial times.
(19)    So as interesting as it may be to speculate that the United States never really obtained its independence from England, it did.
(20)    One final point would be to remember the debate in Congress in 1939-1941 (before Pearl Harbor) about whether the United States should assist the United Kingdom AT ALL, in its defense.
(21)    My Galveston-Texas born grandfather Alphonse B. Meyer got a lucrative contract to clean, paint, and seal the U.S. ships that were being “lent and leased” to England pursuant to a special agreement which a Texas school-teacher turned Congressman, one Lyndon B. Johnson, representing the Texas Hill Country, pushed through Congress on behalf of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
(22)    “Lend-Lease” was basically U.S. charity to England, and so, by World War II, it would be fair to say that the Mother Country was now dependent on the Former Colonies for her very survival.
(23)     There is really very little doubt that, once she committed to War against Germany, whether that was a smart decision or not, Great Britain could not have survived as an independent nation without the full backing of the United States—which King George VI and Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill simply would not have had to beg for, had the English Crown retained “ownership and control” after the American War of Independence and Constitution of 1787, after the War of 1812, or the Civil War…..
(24)    History is VERY interesting, and more people could surely benefit from spending time studying it……
(25)       Anybody who EVER wants to discuss this further, leave your comment, e-mail, and telephone number here….I might even start giving seminars….

Alabama Attorney Lowell A. (“Larry”) Becraft addresses the Lunatic Fringe of the Patriot Movement

MYTHOLOGY & LAW in MODERN AMERICA

I am a great advocate of historical revisionism, but only when the revised history will be more accurate than currently “generally accepted” history….  But sometimes historical revisions are proposed which go the other way—alternative history is not always BETTER….it’s just different…. but so is smoking crack…..

Earlier this month, I had the privilege of meeting Alabama Attorney Lowell A. Becraft in person for the very first time.  He and I had exchanged e-mails before on the general subject of patriot mythology in regards to legal process and substantive.  Such mythology has horrendous consequences, including jail time, fines, and sanctions, for many good people I have known.   I have a Ph.D. from Harvard (1990) and my coursework and dissertation research spanned the fields of archaeology, anthropology, ethnology, history, mythology, religion and sociology (though not necessarily in that alphabetical order).  

One of the most basic and enduring lessons I ever learned (especially applicable to the field of law, was encapsulated in the title of a book by one of American AnthroSome myths have at least a weak basis in historical fact, even if no overarching purpose.  I learned with great interest several years ago about how principles of Admiralty Law were imported from England starting in the 1940s-50s to make off-shore oil fields insurable in Louisiana, and how these usages persist in Louisiana law even today—I had a large claim for household damage that which I sued on and settled after Hurricane Katrina.  I spend many hours with top Louisiana insurance lawyers and really enjoyed what I learned, because I was already familiar with both the British Control and Admiralty Law Mythologies of Modern American Patriot Movement. 

Basically, it seems that starting in 1930, the best land-based oil-wells in Louisiana and East Texas were already showing signs of being finite, limited, and exhaustable if not already exhausted, but everybody knew that the geology indicated more oilfields could be tapped and drilled offshore.  But in the 1920s and 1930s, nobody could drill off-shore because nobody would finance off-shore drilling, which was way more expensive than land drilling.  

And nobody would finance offshore oil-drilling until such operations could be insured, and nobody in the U.S. was willing to insure such constructions.  But the British (e.g. Lloyds of London) were willing to do so, and they imported the principles regarding the insurability of anchored ships out of port to do so.  So in a sense, the widespread myth among Southern Patriots that the British were still in charge as late as the mid-twentieth century, and that the British insisted on using Admiralty law, but both of these facts of modern history have been twisted beyond recognition. pology’s greatest figures, Marshall Sahlins of the University of Chicago (where I also studied, receiving a J.D. in law there in 1992): Historical Metaphors and Mythic Realities.  Quite simply, historical events are either selected and framed in the telling, or else sometimes engineered and staged, to create mythic realities as desired.   

There is another problem though—sometimes people just get wild ideas, and these wild ideas may be based in whole or in part on some sort of confusing real events— and the real events relevant here are: the two oldest institutions, or certainly two OF the oldest institutions, in all of Europe are (1) the Vatican (dating back to the arrival of Saints Peter and Paul in Rome, sometime in the mid-first Century A.D.) and (2) the British Monarch—dating back at least to King Alfred of Wessex, as the first to be called the “King of the English,” but really back to Cerdic or Cedric in 534 (Cerdic or Cedric stands as the first King of Anglo-Saxon Wessex from 519 to 534, in the chronological history described by the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle as the founder of the Kingdom of Wessex and (at least symbolic and mythic ancestor of all its subsequent kings in the House of Wessex right up to Henry I (“Beauclerc”) after the Norman Conquest, who reigned 1100-1135.

In any event, I suppose to the modern American mind, weakly educated in history as it is, the persistence of any institution for very close to 2000 years in the case of the Vatican in Rome and 1200-1500 years in the case of the English/British Monarchy seems almost incredible as a historical fact—and it is to be admitted that these two institutions outshine almost all others in Europe in their longevity. It may seem almost mystical that the House of Wessex, which gve rise to the Kingdom of England, and ultimately Great Britain, had itslef replaced the Roman Empire in Britain. Less than 50 years having elapsed from the final collapse of the Western Roman Empire in 476 to the accession of Cerdic or Cedric in 519 or, his possible rise as a conqueror even earlier, at 490 A.D., as celebrated in the slightly racy 1951 novel Conscience of a King by Alfred L. Duggan among others.  

OR, it could be that the people who invent these historically fictitious mythologies are all generated and propagated by government agents planted to create chaos and dissent in the Conservative, Patriotic Movement—which they certainly do.

Concession of 15 May 1213             (by Lowell A. Becraft)

There is a baseless theory floating around that King John’s “Concession of 15 May 1213″ with the Pope means that, even today, the Vatican owns both England and the United States of America. Like many groundless ideas that get promoted, advocates of arguments like this one focus on a single fact and then draw wild conclusions.

The “Concession” required payments from the English King to the Pope, but history shows that King John did not make the required payment for the following year. See:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John,_King_of_England

Where the following is found:

“Under mounting political pressure, John finally negotiated terms for a reconciliation, and the papal terms for submission were accepted in the presence of the papal legate Pandulph in May 1213 at the Templar Church at Dover.[177] As part of the deal, John offered to surrender the Kingdom of England to the papacy for a feudal service of 1,000 marks (equivalent to £666 at the time) annually: 700 marks (£466) for England and 300 marks (£200) for Ireland, as well as recompensing the church for revenue lost during the crisis.[178] The agreement was formalised in the Bulla Aurea, or Golden Bull. This resolution produced mixed responses. Although some chroniclers felt that John had been humiliated by the sequence of events, there was little public reaction.[179] Innocent benefited from the resolution of his long-standing English problem, but John probably gained more, as Innocent became a firm supporter of John for the rest of his reign, backing him in both domestic and continental policy issues.[180] Innocent immediately turned against Philip, calling upon him to reject plans to invade England and to sue for peace.[180] John paid some of the compensation money he had promised the church, but he ceased making payments in late 1214, leaving two-thirds of the sum unpaid; Innocent appears to have conveniently forgotten this debt for the good of the wider relationship.[181]”

Some payments to the Pope were made pursuant to this agreement off and on for a little more than the next 100 years, eventually ending. “The last payment ever recorded was a token £1,000 from Edward III in 1333, in expectation of papal favours.” See: http://www.historyextra.com/qa/when-did-pope-rule-england

It is alleged that this concession was a treaty, but if it was, it is subject to another fact regarding treaties: they are often broken. King Henry VIII broke with the Vatican and established the Church of England, seizing Catholic properties. See:   

http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/reformation.htm

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_VIII_of_England

History reveals that both Henry VIII and Oliver Cromwell essentially ended the Papacy’s control over England. See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_Reformation

The following is stated at the above link:

“The Act in Restraint of Appeals,” drafted by Cromwell, apart from outlawing appeals to Rome on ecclesiastical matters, declared that

 “This realm of England is an Empire, and so hath been accepted in the world, governed by one Supreme Head and King having the dignity and royal estate of the Imperial Crown of the same, unto whom a body politic compact of all sorts and degrees of people divided in terms and by names of Spirituality and Temporality, be bounden and owe to bear next to God a natural and humble obedience.[20]

This declared England an independent country in every respect.

The above (along with lots of other authority) demonstrates that certainly by the time of Henry VIII and Oliver Cromwell, the Pope did not own or control England.  The above theory is thus a false, baseless contention.

But does the English Monarchy or England have any legal control over the United States of America? Please remember that there was indeed (contrary to contentions of the revisionists) an American Revolution. And both English and American courts long ago held that the Revolution severed all legal connections between our country and the English crown/England. 

I described these cases and other matters on my website as follows:

Simple facts regarding the “we are subjects of the British Crown” issue

   Several years ago, some folks developed an argument that “we are still subjects of the British crown” and started promoting it. You are free to believe that argument which will waste your time. Here is a simple refutation of that argument:

1. The Articles of Confederation provided as follows:

 “Article II. Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every Power, Jurisdiction and right, which is not by this confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.”

2. On February 6,  1778, the United States entered into a Treaty of Alliance with France (8 Stat. 6).  On July 16, 1782,  we borrowed substantial sums from King Louis XVI of France, via anagreement signed by French Foreign Minister Charles Gravier de Vergennes. It must be noted that there are people who erroneously assert that this loan was really secured from the Brits instead of the French (you can be the judge of their honesty). 

3. Our country and the British Crown signed the Treaty of Peace on September 3, 1783 (8 Stat. 218), the first provision of which reads as follows:

“His Britannic Majesty acknowledges the said United States, viz, New-Hampshire, Massachusetts-Bay, Rhode-Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New-York, New-Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North-Carolina, South-Carolina, and Georgia, to  be free, sovereign and independent States; that he treats with them as such; and for himself, his heirs and successors, relinquishes all claims to the government, proprietary and  territorial rights of the same, and every part thereof.”

See also Nov. 30, 1782 Provisional Treaty and Jan. 20, 1783 Treaty of Cessation of Hostilities.

    Does this 1783 Peace Treaty still exist? All one needs to do to confirm this is to check out a government  publication entitled “Treaties in Force” which can be found in any good library, especially a university library. Under the list of our treaties with Great Britain and the United Kingdom, you will find that this 1783 treaty is still in effect, at least a part of it: “Only article 1 is in force.” Art.1 was the section of this treaty acknowledging our independence. The War of 1812 resulted in modifications of this treaty and so did later treaties.

4. The courts have not been silent regarding the effect of the Declaration of Independence and the Treaty of Peace. For example, the consequences of independence were explained inHarcourt v. Gaillard, 25 U.S. (12 Wheat.) 523, 526-27 (1827), where the Supreme Court stated:

 “There was no territory within the United States that was claimed in any other right than that of some one of the confederated states; therefore, there could be no acquisition of territory made by the United States distinct from, or independent of some one of the states.

“Each declared itself sovereign and independent, according to the limits of its territory.

 “[T]he soil and sovereignty within their acknowledged limits were as much theirs at the declaration of independence as at this hour.”

In M’Ilvaine v. Coxe’s Lessee, 8 U.S. (4 Cranch) 209, 212 (1808), the Supreme Court  held:

“This opinion is predicated upon a principle which is believed to be undeniable, that the several states which composed this Union, so far at least as regarded their municipal regulations, became entitled, from the time when they declared themselves independent, to all the rights and powers of sovereign states, and that they did not derive them from concessions made by the British king. The treaty of peace contains a recognition of their independence, not a grant of it. From hence it results, that the laws of the several state governments were the laws of sovereign states, and as such were obligatory upon the people of such state, from the time they were enacted.”

In reference to the Treaty of Peace, this same court stated:

“It contains an acknowledgment of the independence and sovereignty of the United States, in their political capacities, and a relinquishment on the part of His Britannic Majesty, of all claim to the government, propriety and territorial rights of the same. These concessions amounted, no doubt, to a formal renunciation of all claim to the allegiance of the citizens of the United States.”

     Finally, in Inglis v. Trustees of the Sailor’s Snug Harbor, 28 U.S. (3 Peters) 99, 120-122 (1830), the question squarely arose as to whether Americans are “subjects of the crown,” a proposition flatly rejected by the Court:

“It is universally admitted both in English courts and in those of our own country, that all persons born within the colonies of North America, whilst subject to the crown of Great Britain, were natural born British subjects, and it must necessarily follow that that character was changed by the separation of the colonies from the parent State, and the acknowledgment of their independence.

 “The rule as to the point of time at which the American antenati ceased to be British subjects, differs in this country and in England, as established by the courts of justice in the respective countries. The English rule is to take the date of the Treaty of Peace in 1783. Our rule is to take the date of the Declaration of Independence.”

In support of the rule set forth in this case, the court cited an English case to demonstrate that the English courts had already decided that Americans were not subjects of the crown:

“The doctrine of perpetual allegiance is not applied by the British courts to the American antenati. This is fully shown by the late case of Doe v. Acklam, 2 Barn. & Cresw. 779. Chief Justice Abbott says: ‘James Ludlow, the father of Francis May, the lessor of the plaintiff, was undoubtedly born a subject of Great Britain. He was born in a part of America which was at the time of his birth a British colony, and parcel of the dominions of the crown of Great Britain; but upon the facts found, we are of opinion that he was not a subject of the crown of Great Britain at the time of the birth of his daughter. She was born after the independence of the colonies was recognized by the crown of Great Britain; after the colonies had become United States, and their inhabitants generally citizens of those States, and her father, by his continued residence in those States, manifestly became a citizen of them.’ He considered the Treaty of Peace as a release from their allegiance of all British subjects who remained there. A declaration, says he, that a State shall be free, sovereign and independent, is a declaration that the people composing the State shall no longer be considered as subjects of the sovereign by whom such a declaration is made.”

(Note: the linked copies of these cases highlight the important parts of these opinions for your convenience).    Notwithstanding the fact that English and American courts long ago rejected this argument, I still encounter e-mail from parties who contend that this argument is correct. For example, just recently I ran across this note which stated:

“In other words, the interstate system of banks is the private property of the King… This means that any profit or gain anyone experienced by a bank/thrift and loan/employee credit union ?? any regulated financial institution carries with it ?? as an operation of law ?? the identical same full force and effect as if the King himself created the gain. So as an operation of law, anyone who has a depository relationship, or a credit relationship, with a bank, such as checking, savings, CD’s, charge cards, car loans, real estate mortgages, etc., are experiencing profit and gain created by the King ?? so says the Supreme Court. At the present time, Mr. Condo, you have bank accounts (because you accept checks as payment for books and subscriptions), and you are very much in an EQUITY RELATIONSHIP with the King.

This note also alleged that George Mercier, who wrote an article apparently popular among those who believe the “contract theory” of government, was a retired judge, which is false. Just because you read it on the Net does not make it true.See:       http://home.hiwaay.net/~becraft/WeAintBrits.htm

 

27 January 2015 Ursula Haverbeck & Lady Michele Renouf on the 70th Anniversary of the “Liberation of Auschwitz”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqMfRkAzSXs&feature=youtu.be

Whatever you believe, ask yourself: why do YOU believe what YOU believe?   Because you have heard it a thousand times without contradiction?  If I gave you a dozen books against the “accepted version” of history, would you read them?  I have tried this, with several highly intelligent friends (well-versed in anthropology, hermeneutics linguistics, mythology, and structuralism) and so far, am deeply disappointed…. “Faith means believing that which you know is not true”…..  But what you call reality is really your “Faith” in that which you believe to be absolutely true….

Will you listen to Ursula Haverbeck and Mary Renouf above?  Or to Mark Weber below?

I suggest that Soviet Lies have become American and Western European Mythology, and the official religion of the “Brave New World” of the United Nations, Globalism, and “Eracism” (the erasure of “races”—especially the White Caucasian Race), articles of faith required, all amounting to a great “blood libel” (ironically enough) against the German people and their government.  If you doubt this, what would it take to convince you?  Last year I began a program of handing out books for free to friends and willing readers (not always the same people).  Ursula Haverbeck and Lady Michele Renouf are grand dames of Historical Revisionism, and I think their words and works are worthy of our attention.

I AM A LIVING, BREATHING MUGWUMP: Patriot Myths, Mythology, and Lies which Sabotage and Undermine Real Patriotic Americans

According to my mother, in the U of Chicago and Radcliffe “slang” parlance of her college days, a “MUGWUMP” was a mythological bird that flies backwards because it doesn’t know its mug from its wump…

Some “Patriot Mythmongers” just have to be government agents who infiltrate the Patriotic, Traditional, Pro-Constitutional, Anti-Communist movements and give not just misinformation but suicidally bad advice to otherwise decent people who find themselves crosswise with the law: They advise and counsel being rude, disrespectful, and “sassy” to the Court, engaging in unmannerly behavior which (not in the legal but in the common, everyday sense) shows true “CONTEMPT” (i.e. disdain and disregard) of the Court and its proceedings.  

To say this is bad advice, let me give this example:  Imagine that you are in Germany in the 1930s and summoned to a GESTAPO inquiry about whether you have lied about your status as an Aryan when you are in fact Jewish.  The “Patriot Mythmongers'” to which I refer here give the equivalent of the following advice: “Just tell the GESTAPO Gauleiter that your Rabbi tells you that that fact that you were circumcised and Bar-Mitzvahed by him does not make you any less of an Aryan.”  That would have gone over like a lead balloon and probably led to immediate deportation, and what some “Sovereign Citizen” Patriots advise people to do in Court is absolutely no better.

Case in point that just came to my attention in an official transcript from Florida (but it is a tragic scene that is played out OVER and OVER again all around the USA):

(1)     Court called to Order at 9:00 AM

(2)     The Court: “We’re here in the case of the State of Florida vs. (Defendant’s Full Legal name).  Is there a Mr. (Defendant’s Full Legal Name) present? If there are [sic, even judges apparently use bad grammatical constructions, mixing singular and plural, come forward, please, sir.  

(3)    The Defedant: “No Audible Response.”

(4)    The Court: Is there a (Defendant’s Full Legal Name) present?  If there is, come forward please, sir.  

(5)    Unidentified Speaker:  “I’m here to speak to that matter.”

(6)    The Court: Are you Mr. (Defendant’s Full Name)

(7)    Unidentified Speaker:  “I’m a living, breathing—”

(8)    The Court:  Is there a (Defendant’s Full Name) present?

(9)    The Defendant:  “No audible response”  

(10)   The Court:  If there is a (Defendant’s Full Name) present, have him come forward.  If not, I will be issuing a capias for his arrest.  Is there a (Defendant’s last name) here?  

(11)    Unidentified Speaker: “For the Record—”  

(12)   The Court:  Let the record reflect—

(13)   Unidentified Speaker: “—I am here to speak on that matter

(14)   The Court: Let the record reflect—

(15)   Unidentified Speaker: “—I am here to speak on that matter.

(16)   The Court: Let the record reflect (Defendant’s last name) has not appeared.  Capias will be issued for his arrest to be returned to the Court, no bond.  If there’s a surety bond — was the bondsman noticed?

What the judge did here was: he put the “Defendant” in jail for 21 days without hearing or bond.  This was arguably an overreaction, but why did the Defendant do what he did?  Why did he try to open up with the ridiculous formulaic statement “I am a living, breathing person?”  It’s because s/he got idiotic advice from a Patriot Mythmonger—“Defendant” who told me this story would not tell me who (perhaps because I offered to put said Patriot Mythmonger on my “to kill” or at least “deserves to die later” list).  

Now what were the Judge’s options here: (1) well he could have said, “I’m glad to hear you’re a living and breathing person, but what’s your name you stupid Mo-Fo?”; (2) the Judge could have said, “Will the bailiff please cause Mr. (Defendant’s full name) to enter and stand before the court?  You may use all such force as appears to you reasonable and necessary to cause (the Defendant) to do so (that would have been the same as the CAPIAS, but with more immediate results); (3) the Judge could do what he did, which was to have the Defendant arrested and jailed (effectively punishing him for Contempt of Court, although nominally it was merely an order compelling the Defendant to appear by admitting his name in Court where he had already appeared by body in person); (4) the Judge could have let the Defendant ramble on about being a living breathing person and not a fictitious ALL CAPS Corporation created without his consent.  

But as my great-grandfather, a Louisiana State Court Judge and later Justice used to say, “We are brought into this world without our knowledge and taken without our consent.”  This is relevant, because another one of the Patriot Myths is that “All Law Proceeds by Contract”—sometimes specifically under the U.C.C., or else under Admiralty Law—and these are the most misleading and pernicious lies of all….. and have cause many, including but not limited to my dear old Texas friends Daniel Marion Swank, Drs. Kamil Kreit and Jacques S. Jaikaran, to lose some liberty and a great deal of property in what should have been very important cases.

Anyhow, in the transcript excerpt above, the lines attributed to an “Unidentified Speaker” and “the Defendant” were spoken in open Court by the same person.  About twenty-five people witnesses this.

The “Unidentified Speaker’s” comments may be quite mystifying to anyone who has not kept up with certain quasi-underground legal-activist elements of the (Mostly Conservative, Traditionalist, Constitutionalist) “Patriot” movement in the United States of America  over the past 25-30 years.

A certain brand of “Patriot” believes that we do not own our names, especially if they are written in capital letters.  If this sounds absurd to you, it sounds absurder to me, because I have seen the consequences.

If the “Unidentified Speaker” and “the Defendant” were in fact the same person in the exchange above, it is pretty clear that “neither of these individuals” admitted to having the Defendant’s full name (even if that was his/her/its legal name).  

Now I despise bad Judges who disregard civil rights and the Constitution.  You might say I’ve dedicated my life to fighting them. But listen people: A JUDICIAL SYSTEM, AT THE VERY LEAST, IS DESIGNED TO BE A CIVILIZED ALTERNATIVE TO FIGHTING IN THE STREETS AS A WAY OF RESOLVING DISPUTES.  

Whatever information we have about judicial corruption or disregard for law, rules of procedure, or the constitution, it does NOT justify being rude to a judge in Court.

When I was 11 I left Dallas to go to school in Los Angeles.  When I came back to Dallas at 14, at the local Highland Park Swimming Pool, I saw a guy I thought was my friend from 5th grade and earlier, three years before, but at that age, kids are growing up fast and changing very quickly.  So I wasn’t sure.  I asked my friend, “Hey, are you John T.?”  He looked at me like I was crazy, as teenage boys kind of like to do, and said, “No Charlie, I’m Michael Jackson of the Jackson Five, don’t you recognize me?”  (It’s irrelevant to this discussion that I could truthfully respond, “No, I was in school with Mikey out in LA, and you don’t look anything like him, ’cause he was kind of black…”)  This kind of behavior might be perfectly appropriate among teenagers at a public pool, but it has no place in Court.  And adults should know that.

Being polite is the first step towards being respected—because we all know that to get respect you have to show respect.  Kind of a “Golden Rule” type of thing.  But still the Patriot Mythmongers go around telling people to show their CONTEMPT OF COURT and COURT RULES visibly and audibly—and they should all be taken out by friendly fire.  

It is NOT appropriate in ANY legal proceeding to say, “I am a living, breathing, person.”  It is NEITHER true in any sense nor appropriate to say that your name WRITTEN IN ALL CAPS (e.g.: CHARLES EDWARD LINCOLN III) is not the same legal individual as your name written in Title Format (Charles Edward Lincoln III).  

BUT NOT ONLY IS IT NOT TRUE TO SAY THESE THINGS, WHEN YOU SAY THEM, YOU PAINT A RED BULLSEYE ON YOURSELF AND TELL THE COPS AND THE COURTS “OK, SHOOT ME, BECAUSE I AM A REAL MUGWUMP”—by which I mean, you are (like the bird) so stupid you really don’t know your mug from your wump, you don’t know which way is up, and you basically deserve to die (ok, not really—I’m not advocating shooting of ALL people who believe this stuff–though I am advocating their radical re-education).

For all the corruption in this country, I have seen no evidence in the 30 years since I first became acquainted with the “Republic of Texas” and other “sovereign citizen” movements, that we have special corporate accounts set up at birth by the government matching our social security numbers and these (non-existent) accounts cannot be accessed by writing weird negotiable instruments.  I have seen people go to jail for trying.  I have seen other people get by with such things, at least temporarily.  

But I ask you, in the spirit of our founding fathers:  what can there possibly be that is legitimate or patriotic about (1) being rude in court, (2) refusing to acknowledge the name which your parents gave you, and by which you presumably have lived all of your life, (3) trying to get something for nothing, i.e. by trying to draw on these non-existent social security birth accounts, filing 1099-OIDS, using Fred & Nina Gutierrez EFT process, or anything else that passes for “brilliant insight” in the Patriot Movement?  

NO, let’s stick to the Constitution AND Civilized Manners of our Grandparents and Great-Grandparents, and let’s NOT act like MUGWUMPS in Court or anywhere else…

Robert Edward Lee’s Birthday—this Janus Faced Holiday—Why it Matters that Love Makes Memory Eternal

Brooksville, Hernando County, Florida

The Confederate Soldiers of 1861-1865

My son Charlie (Charles Edward Andrew Lincoln IV) and I used to celebrate this day every year….he’s grown up and is pursuing his own Law Degree at a distinctly proletarian law school (“Texas A & M in Fort Worth”), and I guess he feels weighed down by social pressures not to waive the same flags and carry on the same battles as his old man.  He has quite a collection of both history books and flags, I guarantee you that.  So far as I know, he’s never been to the White House in Washington, but he has been to Beauvoir, last home of President Jefferson Davis, in Biloxi, Mississippi.  The Confederate Soldier—a humble man not wearing a real army uniform carrying the rifle he used back home to hunt rabbit and deer, apparently is not a potent symbol for career development in modern America.

United Daughters of the Confederacy---50 years after the War

Love Makes Memory Eternal—

Love and Memory seem to me the key elements missing from modern lives and conventional history.  Well, truth and objectivity is pretty much missing, also….but without love and memory, who is there to enforce more than the one hateful version which supports the present Administration as a Marxist power-play to abolish private property and render us all slaves on a government plantation, once and for all? (http://townhall.com/columnists/starparker/2009/02/09/back_on_uncle_sams_plantation/page/full)(http://www.unclesamsplantation.com)
The story of the American War of 1861-1865 is very complex and very confusing.  Was it the Second American Revolution against Centralized Government and Oppression/Suppression of the Constitution, as the CSA President Jefferson Davis said in his “retirement” in Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government (1881) (http://www.amazon.com/Rise-Fall-Confederate-Government-Volume/dp/0306804182).  
Most would agree that “the War Between the American States” is best understood as the first “Modern” war in a great many ways: culturally, economically, politically, technologically, and socially.  The way the history is taught in American Schools—this war, under the false name of “The American Civil War” (if deciphered thoughtfully), is truly the story of the first of three important Marxist-inspired wars designed to cause and implement social change.  This year is the sesquicentennial of the bloody ending of that war.  There have been a lot of reenactments and books and conferences.  
I think of Isaiah 59:

Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.

The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.

Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.

10 We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.

11 We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.

Accordingly, during Most of the 20th and all of the 21st Century the war is not taught as anything but a war against Slavery.  The history of the period 1861-1865 is not remembered as the time when the U.S. Department of Agriculture was established to standardize agriculture nationwide according to the Communist Manifesto published so recently in London.  
Nor do our schools teach Cousin Abe’s War as the war during which the President illegally established the very first American Income Tax, also mandated by the Communist Manifesto of February 1848 (just 13 years and two months before the War broke out in America) or the War during which the Sixteenth President illegally re-established the National Banking System which Andrew Jackson had abolished. (Nor is it noted that Centralized, Nationalized or Internationalized Banking lies at the heart of the Communist Manifesto and Program).  Our schools likewise mostly omit mention of the First Republican President’s (1996 AEDPA, 2001 Patriot Act, and 2009 NDAA Predecessor) suspension of Habeas Corpus, the suppression of Freedom of Speech, and the accompanying the mass hangings and fixed elections which permitted Cousin Abe to win the war against his cousins, who were my direct ancestors.  It is indeed a short trip from what the First Republican President did to the Constitution during his first term, to what Newt Gingerich and his Republican Majority did to the Bill of Rights in 1996, what George W. Bush did after 9-11 in 2001, and what Obama has done to both the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in 2009-2015….it’s a straight line progression, with very few hesitations or hickups along the way….. you might even call it “the Highway to Hell.”……
United Daughters of the Confederacy

The Battle Flag and the Historical Frame

And it’s just way too confusing to have to admit that the Native American Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, and Seminole Tribes all together, but especially the Cherokee and Creek, fought on the side of the Confederacy, in part because Native Americans had traditions of slavery that pre-dated the Spanish Entrada of De Soto and the Foundation of Sir Walter Raleigh’s Colony of Virginia in the Sixteenth Century.  But in part because the Southern Tribes had survived, albeit displaced, where none of the Northern Tribes had survived at all, from Massachusetts and Maine all the way to Michigan and Minnesota….

Mixing Memory and Desire in the isolated backwaters of Florida, in June of 1916

Of what value are the stories of the wounded and dead on bloody battlefields if we do not make it all a part of our own blood, soul and acknowledge our kinship with the fallen heroes? 
 This Confederate Monument stands in front of the Hernando County Courthouse in Brooksville, Florida, where I attended a celebration of Robert E. Lee’s birthday last night (Saturday January 17, 2015, even though Lee’s real birthday is on the Federal Holiday Celebrated on Monday….. a true Janus-like irony, looking past and forward).
Hernando County, Florida

17 January 2015 a modern band played on the Courthouse Steps

So Charlie, Do you remember how we used to celebrate in Dallas, Lago Vista, Galveston, and New Orleans?   Do you remember Jefferson Davis’ home at Beauvoir near Biloxi?  The Confederate Memorial Hall just off Lee Circle in New Orleans?  Do you remember taking Taylor to these places before and after Audubon Zoo Camp and then to the Battlefield Monuments at Vicksburg?  The Mounds at Poverty Point or the Houses in Natchez and the Natchez Trace Parkway up to Shiloh? That was all in the summer of 1999.
What the world needs now is renewed faith and divine guidance so may God Vindicate Historical Truth—Deo Vindice!!!
We need to remember Robert Edward Lee’s sterling personal integrity—and is it rude to ask how his politics or personal integrity compares with that of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in whose honor today is a Federal Holiday (http://www.martinlutherking.org/thebeast.html)
Even normally blindly liberal Salon.com covers these facts:
So what does January mean?  Like the Roman God from whose name this month takes its (little today considered) identity (since nobody reads Latin in School anymore), January is a time for looking backward in history and forward in time.  
Looking backwards: Robert Edward Lee represents, I suppose, “the old dead white man’s America”, the America of Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Andrew Jackson, Jefferson Davis, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson, John Davis, Theodore Bilbo, Strom Thurmond, Sam Ervin, John Stennis, James Eastland, George Corley Wallace…..
Looking Forwards: Martin Luther King, Jr., represents “the new America, not white, not moral, basically communist”—well, that’s exactly the America Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., also wants…
Is the spirit of the humble Confederate Soldier crushed yet?  Charlie, my Whelp, what do YOU think?
Mixing Memory and Desire

Not Generals, Not Politicians, but Rural Enlisted Men who Fought and Died…for the Constitution? Freedom? Their homes?

The Winter Solstice in Orlando, Florida, U.S.A. is on Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 6:03 PM EST

Well, St. Lucy’s Day was exactly a week ago, but when John Donne wrote this poem, one of my all-time favorites, in the time of Cromwell’s Commonwealth, England still used the Julian Calendar rather than the Gregorian, and so the shortest day of the year fell on the Feast of St. Lucy, my late grandmother Helen Lucy Eugenie’s baptismal day (her birthday was December 2).  I miss her still, 13 and three quarters of a year after she died, more than I know how to express.  But at least I can talk to her daughter Alice Anne Eugenie, my mother, every day.  

Today we recalled my first “acting” gig—when I was in First Grade and played “Joseph” in the Nativity Play at John S. Armstrong elementary in Highland Park, which used to be a very special place to live in Texas.  The part of Mary was played by Liebe Wetzel who really did go on to have a career in show business, having founded a puppet theatre in San Francisco.  But the truth is that today (Sunday 21 December 2014) is really the shortest day and longest night:

A Nocturnal upon St. Lucy’s Day

BY JOHN DONNE

‘Tis the year’s midnight, and it is the day’s,
Lucy’s, who scarce seven hours herself unmasks;
         The sun is spent, and now his flasks
         Send forth light squibs, no constant rays;
                The world’s whole sap is sunk;
The general balm th’ hydroptic earth hath drunk,
Whither, as to the bed’s feet, life is shrunk,
Dead and interr’d; yet all these seem to laugh,
Compar’d with me, who am their epitaph.
Study me then, you who shall lovers be
At the next world, that is, at the next spring;
         For I am every dead thing,
         In whom Love wrought new alchemy.
                For his art did express
A quintessence even from nothingness,
From dull privations, and lean emptiness;
He ruin’d me, and I am re-begot
Of absence, darkness, death: things which are not.
All others, from all things, draw all that’s good,
Life, soul, form, spirit, whence they being have;
         I, by Love’s limbec, am the grave
         Of all that’s nothing. Oft a flood
                Have we two wept, and so
Drown’d the whole world, us two; oft did we grow
To be two chaoses, when we did show
Care to aught else; and often absences
Withdrew our souls, and made us carcasses.
But I am by her death (which word wrongs her)
Of the first nothing the elixir grown;
         Were I a man, that I were one
         I needs must know; I should prefer,
                If I were any beast,
Some ends, some means; yea plants, yea stones detest,
And love; all, all some properties invest;
If I an ordinary nothing were,
As shadow, a light and body must be here.
But I am none; nor will my sun renew.
You lovers, for whose sake the lesser sun
         At this time to the Goat is run
         To fetch new lust, and give it you,
                Enjoy your summer all;
Since she enjoys her long night’s festival,
Let me prepare towards her, and let me call
This hour her vigil, and her eve, since this
Both the year’s, and the day’s deep midnight is.

POETJohn Donne 1572–1631

EVERYONE can create (“originate”) their own money (“banknotes”), if licensed by the Federal Government? Even a Rutgers Basketball Coach?

This is a part of the Federal statute that regulates “individual” promissory note originators:

12 U.S. Code § 5103 – License or registration required (a) In general

Subject to the existence of a licensing or registration regime, as the case may be, an individual may not engage in the business of a loan originator without first—
(1) obtaining, and maintaining annually—

(A) a registration as a registered loan originator; or
(B) a license and registration as a State-licensed loan originator; and
(2) obtaining a unique identifier.
(b) Loan processors and underwriters

(1) Supervised loan processors and underwriters

A loan processor or underwriter who does not represent to the public, through advertising or other means of communicating or providing information (including the use of business cards, stationery, brochures, signs, rate lists, or other promotional items), that such individual can or will perform any of the activities of a loan originator shall not be required to be a State-licensed loan originator.
(2) Independent contractors

An independent contractor may not engage in residential mortgage loan origination activities as a loan processor or underwriter unless such independent contractor is a State-licensed loan originator.

A PERSONAL LOAN FROM A FRIEND OR A
SECURITIZED CREDIT ORIGINATION?11-05-2014 Kennedy v Stringer Original Complaint USDC DNJ

(4)          Plaintiff Melvene Lynn Kennedy is the owner of a restaurant facility (currently closed, non-operational) called “Uncle Seas”, located at 879 Springfield in Irvington, New Jersey, executed a promissory note payable to C. Vivian Stringer, as described in a complaint filed on behalf of C. Vivian Stringer by Peter J. Hendricks on or about June 7, 2013.
(5)           Plaintiff has sought proof, which has been repeatedly denied and refused, in the state Court proceedings, that the C. Vivian Stringer had or has any rights of ownership and/or enforceability of the promissory note, which appears to have been processed through the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens, in Somerset, New Jersey, Senior Pastor “Buster” Soaries, and a coordinate and related pair of institutions CDC Properties and Central Jersey Development Corporation (http://cjcdc.org/affiliates.php), both operating in fact under Federal Banking and Community Development Law, but masquerading as a personal act of monetary assistance based on friendship rather than commerce.
(6)           Plaintiff Melvene Lynn Kennedy agreed to the interest rate of 18%, in whole or in part because of the special trust and confidence which she reposed in her long-time sports coach and mentor, Defendant C. Vivian Stringer; Kennedy
alleges that this interest rate was unlawful for a federally guaranteed and secured
loan, that further that it was unfair, inequitable, and unconscionable in any legal or equitable sense, as was the entire transaction, being based on fraud, “false identities” and deceit.
(7)      Plaintiff executed a mortgage in favor of C. Vivian Stringer, at Stringer’s request and direction, but in coordination with the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens. Plaintiff sought in State Court has never been allowed to see any evidence of whether the money came from C. Vivian Stringer, but the check appears to have issued either by the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens or else CDC Properties or else Central Jersey Community Development Corporation.  Plaintiff asks, how does this make C. Vivian Stringer a creditor entitled to foreclose? What is her injury standing? Plaintiff alleges that C. Vivian Stringer has no standing but merely a status, a de facto, or even de jure, title of nobility namely, as an “individual originator of credit.”
(8)               Plaintiff ’s promissory note was never filed with the Court, in violation of New Jersey Law, at the time of the initiation of the foreclosure. Plaintiff believes that C. Vivian Stringer never owned or managed the underlying note or mortgage at any time after closing on May 7, 2010, and that her June 7, 2013 suit for foreclosure was fraudulently filed, and constitutes a conspiracy, with the other defendants, to effect a theft by false pretenses, under color of New Jersey Court Procedures and Federal Banking and Credit Law.
The New Jersey Foreclosure Process
(9)       Foreclosure Litigation in New Jersey, under the New Jersey Fair Foreclosure Act (FFA) and related statutes, begins with a Notice of Intent to Foreclose which precedes the filing of a formal judicial complaint for foreclosure. The Statutory Notice of Intent to Foreclose requires essentially the same standards of disclosure and provision of information than State Rules of Court, but in practice, the New Jersey Superior Courts waive most of the formal “proof of ownership” requirements, as they have in this case.  12-19-2014 Kennedy v Stringer Docket Report Showing Stringer MTD filed 12-17-2014

HISTORICAL CONTEXT AND BACKGROUND (Originally published on this blog May 27, 2009, 23:27:29 PM)

        Paper “banknote” money is, of course, NOT expressly authorized by the United States Constitution, in fact, arguably, it is specifically forbidden by Article I, Section 10 that ” No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts….”  The purpose of paper money (“emitting Bills of Credit”) is and has always been to create easy and quick credit for the FEDERAL government.  This Country was created in large part by the issuance of Fiat Money—the Continental Dollar, which gave rise to one of the earliest sarcastic currency jokes still “in circulation” as part of the English language, “That’s Not Worth a Continental.”

Banks can do the same thing by “originating promissory notes”, “emitting credit” or “approving credit”—and all promissory notes accepted by National Banking Institutions under the definitions of 12 U.S.C. §1813(l) MUST treat approved promissory notes as “the equivalent of cash.”  In effect, any person who can approve credit formally can create money from thin air.

National Banking Associations do that, but a former associate of mine, the well-known Orange County Dentist Dr. Orly Taitz, was able to approve credit through her Dental Office, and upon accepting notes, was able to issue herself money.  She actually DID this in the case of my friend the late (died tragically and very prematurely last December) Major Stefan Frederick Cook….. who never came anywhere near Orly’s dental office….but sought Orly’s “legal” services…. and she had him apply for credit through her dental office.  She never, however, got him into a dental chair so far as I am aware….although he may have felt his teeth had all been extracted by the time his little whirlwind tour with her was over….  I have the greatest respect and regard for Major Stefan Frederick Cook, and I am sorry that Orly’s impetuosity (and my assistance  to her in acting impetuously) may have injured his amazing military career unnecessarily, but that is a different story for a different day: the point is that issuing credit under the national system, whether you are a Bank or a retailer or a retail provider of dental services or anything else: IS the creation of money from thin air.  Creating money from thin air facilitates instant gratification of the kinds and types of which both Henry Ford and Sigmund Freud definitely and enthusiastically approved, albeit for radically different reasons.  Aldous Huxley made the connexion between Ford and Freud’s attitude towards instant gratification in his masterpiece “Sci Fi Horror” book: Brave New World.

       “The Money Multiplier” effect is something that ever student of Freshman economics learns about and then forgets in later life as s/he goes through a normal American life-style creating money by signing credit card notes, mortgages, car loans, EACH of which is multiplied several times within a month or two at the maximum, thereby creating the oversupply of money which that same student of Freshman economics will doubtless hear of on the news, possibly during his middle age, as “inflation” measured by the “consumer price index.”  Gold and silver are not immune from inflation: during historical gold and silver rushes the value of these commodities has shrunk to unbelievably low levels in mining communities and areas where they are super-abundant.  Spain of the “Golden Age” (16th-17th centuries) is often said to have been crippled in comparison with Holland, Germany, and Great Britain by the inflationary effect of vast surplus gold derived from the post-Columbian conquests of Mexico, Peru, Colombia, and Bolivia.  Why develop?  Why produce anything at all when you can stay drunk on easy gold and never have to work?

Why develop just and fair economic and political systems when you can decorate your churches with oceans of gold and then leave them in charge of regulating society and culture through well-funded courts of inquisition who are responsible to no one?  Money = power, power corrupts, and abundant money = absolute power which can corrupt absolutely.  These truisms are too well known to bear much discussion.

         “Formal” market economies have always depended upon an exchange rate based on some form of central commodities.  Before gold and silver the Ancient Romans and Germans used horses and cattle as currency (the word “pecuniary”, meaning, “of or relating to money” is derived from Latin “pecus”—preserved in Spanish words and phrases such as “Agropecuario”—which means “relating to commercial farms and ranches and similar products and services”).

         Among the ancient Aztec and Maya of Mexico, Cacao beans and cotton cloth were used as currency, (this was the sweetest economy in history, where money literally did “grow on trees” and could be made into chocolate at any time).  And in fact the Southern Americans of the Confederate States of America effectively tried (but failed) to use cotton as currency again in the 1860s, but were rebuffed by and ultimately lost their bid for independence as a result of the scorn heaped on them by gold-loving British and French bankers of the middle part of the 19th century.  Thus “Dixie” fell in large part because of its dependence on paper money such as the “Dix Dollars” (Ten Dollar–French language) bill issued by the antebellum Banque de Nouvelle Orleans which had given the region its nickname in the time leading up to secession in 1860-61.  Cowerie shells were famously used by certain pre-modern tribes in the Western Pacific.  The honest advantage of commodity based currencies—and their fatal flaw, from the standpoint of modern social-welfare economics—is that they are inevitably finite.

            No matter how easy it is to pan for gold, grow cotton, raise cattle, or cacao beans, or collect cowerie shells, it cannot be done instantaneously.  And for governments (like the U.S.) which want to build sophisticated nuclear missiles, launch satellites, sponsor vast educational programs which seem to lower the overall national levels of literacy and awareness, try through redistribution of the wealth to make “every man a king”, and generally realize Rumpelstiltskin’s dream of spinning straw into gold without actually doing the work of spinning even, paper money is the only “commodity” sufficiently malleable and manipulable to work.

Do Florida Courts Flaunt the Automatic Stay in Bankruptcy? When they do so, are they acting in complete absence of jurisdiction?

Anyone even peripherally involved in Florida real estate matters must realize that the Florida Courts are engaged by the Banks, perhaps as their direct servants and agents, not merely to enforce but to expedite and simplify mortgage foreclosures and property seizures.  The courts and their clerks cut every corner in order to do so. Today I am writing to solicit comments and gather information:

How many of you, out there, believe that the Florida Courts flaunt the automatic stay in Bankruptcy whenever possible by use of maneuvers or devices which are not quite consistent with the letter and spirit of Federal Law?  To all who may have such information and care to share, please send me your stories of how the Florida Circuit Courts or District Courts of Appeal have ignored or disregarding notices of filing bankruptcy and what reasons were given?  

For example, if a person has an interest in property goes bankrupt, but that person is not the primary target of a mortgage foreclosure suit, is it proper for a State Court to ignore the automatic stay in bankruptcy?  Is the automatic stay afforded by Federal Law a substantive due process right in property or is it merely a procedural due process right?

If State Court Judges take action when the automatic stay is in place, and should be applied to protect certain property, are these judges acting in the Complete Absence of Jurisdiction or merely “in excess of their jurisdiction?”  

If State Judges authorize takings of property during any pending automatic stay in bankruptcy related to property of a debtor’s estate, have these judges waived all claims to judicial immunity for takings of private property without due process of law?  Are the judges then personally liable for violations of civil rights to liberty and property interests?

As I have written so often as to become boring (to some), the credit-financing-mortgage crisis, leading to so many evictions and rental properties filling up, all directly arises from the modern U.S. Government’s/Globalist Banking Economy’s 166 year long crusade to implement world communism (abolition of individual rights in private property, and all other related individual rights, such as “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”).  

Notwithstanding the irony, in some unsophisticated eyes, of international banking being the agents for and providing the means and mechanisms by which international communism matures and manifests itself fully, the government and “government authorized” bankers of our time are absolutely involved in implementing, line-by-line, letter-by-letter, the plan first outlined in the February 1848 Communist Manifesto published that month by Karl Marx and F. Engels in London.

 

Let’s Reflect on Pearl Harbor, and 166 years of Communist Advances

73 years ago this morning, 18 and a half years before I was born (wow, that makes me sound old), Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, was attacked.  My late father, and 18 and a half years old, a seaman barely out of training, was there.  He had joined the Navy to sea the world, and he had only enlisted 6 months before, on his 18th birthday, June 6, 1941, to learn something different about life from his father’s life farming cotton and corn in the piney woods and red soil of East Texas.  World War II gave him opportunities for rapid promotions and honors, of which he earned many.  I never got to talk to my Dad much about his experiences, and all I can remember him saying is about the smell of burning human flesh.

My Dad specifically said that he had never dreamt before what burning bodies might smell like, but that day, half way along the journey of life between his birth and mine, he learned and relearned the smell about 500 times and wondered whether he was next.  And then over the next four years he learned what human bodies looked like and smelled like in all sorts of states of decay and decomposition.  As in the time a kamikaze flier landed on the battleship deck but didn’t explode, and they couldn’t remove the body because they might trigger an explosion on deck (Sometimes in this modern world, cocooned in our coffee shops and Chinese restaurants, we think we have a hard life, but we really don’t, do we?  My father’s future wife [my mother] had already survived the London blitz by the time of Pearl Harbor, but she never had to learn those smells.  My grandfather from Galveston, Texas, was a special adviser to the Royal Navy sent under LBJ’s lend-lease program, but that was totally an office and port job, no significant time at sea at all.)

So Pearl Harbor and all that followed it was obviously a horrific experience the worst and most deadly war in human history, “but what good came of it at last?” And by “it” I mean all aspects of World War II?  Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, but historians are now pretty much unanimous in believing that Franklin D. Roosevelt did everything he could to prompt them to do so, because he, like Churchill, wanted to enter World War II for reasons that transcended any real notion of national security.

Patrick J. Buchanan is not alone among “historical revisionists” who now see World War II as an unnecessary war, which ultimately led to the Communist Domination of China and Indochina (Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos) in the East and all of “Eastern Europe” in the West.

Mark Weber of the IHR in Santa Ana regularly presents lectures on the dangers of “the Good War” mythology promoted around World War II, and many members of and sympathizers with the IHR bemoan the fact that World War II essentially destroyed what was left of European Civilization after World War I.

My own evolving perspective is that World War II was the culmination of a process of Marxist dialectical class change by modern, technologically brutal and destructive warfare which began in 1861 in the United States, although it was inspired by the Communist Manifesto of February 1848 in Europe.    So the “American Civil War” of 1861-1865, the “Great War” of 1914-1918, and World War II were all part of a single process of world transformation, it seems to be, guided by the spirit of international communism.

Thus I conclude, in briefest essence, Sunday, 7 December 1941 at Pearl Harbor was a political fraud, a pseudo-Platonic “noble lie” as some might say, much like Monday 11 September 2001 in New York City and Washington.  But was it really noble for our government to lie about why Americans should be killed and sacrificed on our home shores in order to justify more killing and sacrifice abroad?

What can we do with the Sesquicentennial of direct structural and functional progression between the U.S. Presidencies of Abraham Lincoln through Barack Obama?  Obama was elected in the 160th year of the Communist Manifesto, and I and many others consider Obama to be a very poorly disguised communist.  Even Newsweek Magazine trumpeted shortly after Obama was inaugurated (in February 2009), “We are all Socialists Now.”  Except I’m not, and a few friends of mine are not.

And by then by weird coincidence, Obama (in his first and second terms) got to preside entirely over the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War, which my ancestors called either the War Between the States or the War of Northern Aggression.  Naturally, the celebrations are very different then how they might have been had, for example, Strom Thurmond been elected in 1948, or George Wallace in 1968 (Strom never had a real chance at national election, but George definitely did in 1972, until (yes I guess I am a real “conspiracy theorist”) Nixon had him shot.

Re: National and Local Reaction to Grand Jury “No Bills” in Regard to Recent Police Killings

Quite Simply, Grand Juries are instructed in the law by Prosecutors, and Prosecutors, like Police and judges, claim either absolute or qualified immunity from prosecution, even for the most outrageous violations of Civil and Constitutional Rights, even though neither form of immunity has ever been authorized by any constitution or statutory law.  In the U.S. Constitution, for example, ONLY Legislative Immunity is authorized, and then ONLY for members of Congress actually participating in, or on their way to or from actual participation in Congressional Debates or Votes.

Legislative Immunity is found in Article I, but no executive of judicial immunity can be inferred from any section or clause of Articles II or III. The Eleventh Amendment was enacted to support some forms of State Sovereign Immunity but the Fourteenth Amendment was designed to cut back on that.

I have, for twenty years now, ever since the 7 cases I launched in Texas against the City of Lago Vista Police Department (especially Police Chief Frank Miller, the Policy Formulator, and Bart Turek, a very abusive Police Officer) and the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, been campaigning for a “rule of reason” in evaluating police actions: always ask, and permit jury review of the single question: “were the officer’s actions reasonable under the circumstances?” To implement this rule, we must amend the Civil Rights Action, 42 USC Sections 1983, 1988, expressly to abolish the Court created doctrines of qualified and absolute immunity. We must disarm the police (and prosecutors and judges) of these unjust shields and hold the Police to a higher standard of responsive and reactive conduct rather than a lower standard compared to ordinary citizens.

Beverly Hills at 100: who sets the style for this style-setting enclave?

11 November 2014 Michael S Berlin Complaint against 430 South Crescent Drive Domum Delendum Esse (1)  (for an extended discussion of this topic on-line, see, well, actually, “listen to”:  http://www.starktruthradio.com/?p=890)

Theodore Kyriazis is a real estate broker and investor in Beverly Hills, California, whom I’ve known and with whom I have worked since about September or October 2009.  He is a treasure trove of local knowledge, heritage-details, and inside gossip on this (possibly) most-gossiped about City/Elite Urban Enclave in all of North America, possibly in the whole world.   Theodore has lived here for 30 years now and, what can I say, he’s quite a character.  He says proudly, “my daughters were born here, they have always lived here, and they will probably die here.”  And indeed, his “model-worthy” beautiful blonde teenage daughters seem to epitomize everything, all the material qualities, for which this city is so justly famous. 

Living up to the lifestyle of Beverly Hills year-round is never easy, so Theodore takes these daughters for six weeks every summer to an idyllic island in his native Greece, where Theodore is also engaged in everything from resort real estate to Dairy-Goat-Yoghurt. He also collects sportscars from friends because he thinks they’re sexy (the friends and the cars) and he just can’t help himself when it comes to getting exceptional deals on such vehicles, shrimp, lambchops, chocolate ice cream and candy bars, even Hersheys, anything at all.

In the time that I have known him, Theodore, formerly married to Susan Prinz-Brites, daughter of the most elegant gentleman Mr. Reinhardt Prinz of the “Hollywood 1933″ Club, has introduced me to many of the most interesting people in this city, not necessarily the most famous (because they’re all “managed”).  Specifically, Theodore has introduced me to truly remarkable people like his ex-wife Susan and her daughters, and Dr. Michael S. Berlin, M.D., one of the originators of glaucoma laser surgery and founder of the Glaucoma Institute of Beverly Hills on Beverly Drive.  They say that “familiarity breeds contempt” and Theodore is extremely familiar with everyone in Beverly Hills, particularly those who arrived roughly at the same time he did, namely the Iranian Jews, and for no one does Theodore have greater contempt and scorn. Having married into the local German-Jewish aristocracy, he is mostly envious of their stability and success at the top of the Los Angeles social hierarchy and “food chain.”  Russian Jews and his fellow Greeks (and Armenians) are all somewhere in the middle….

The City of “Perry Mason”, “Dragnet” and “LA Confidential”, the Anglo-Saxon Protestant city of Los Angeles, might as well be an adolescent fantasy of my early teenage years with which Theodore (and his daughters and his ex-wife Susan and her daughters) have little or no familiarity.  They’ve all heard of “the Beverly Hillbillies” but they’ve all heard of Superman and Batman too….

Dr. Berlin may not be a movie star, although his great uncle was the famous composer Irving Berlin (“God Bless America” and all that), but he’s a man of much more substance and practical achievement and contributions to the world than some who just “live off their beauty”—which would be a large proportion of the “Movie-Star” inhabitants of 90210, 90211, and 90212.  And yes, to non-natives Beverly Hills really is big enough for 3 zip codes—Theodore, Stavroula, and Emilia used to live in legendary 90210, a couple of blocks from Rodeo Drive and “All Saints” Church (one block to the west of Rodeo) about which I’ve written a great deal, and not-just because I was confirmed there in 1974, but now Theodore’s “down” in 90212.

Anyhow, Dr. Michael S. Berlin has a problem with his house.  He travels around the country and the world so much of the year I’m surprised he even remembers he has a house, but he’s very attached to his home, and he’s outraged that his “California Hacienda-Bungalow” style home has been literally buried under the shadow of a new next-door neighbor, just to the north—a crude “McMansion” built under the strangest of circumstances by some Iranian Developers.  Already in the late 1980s a book had appeared under the title Irangeles and my former wife and I were once invited to the coronation in abstentia of the heir to the throne Shah (overthrown by the Iranian Revolution in 1979), but I did not realize until I met Theodore that Beverly Hills has been all but totally taken over by Iranian Jews.  

Clearly not all Iranian Jews are bad or undesirable.  Another one of my best friends anywhere in Los Angeles is Rabbi Hertzel Illulian, founder and director of the J.E.M. Community Sports Center at 9903 Santa Monica.  As I have written before, Rabbi Illulian is one of the most gracious, distinguished, eloquent and sincere men I have ever met in my life, an individual of remarkable resilience, a socio-cultural conservative in the most liberal and depraved of cities, who refuses to accept homosexuality or “free love” or any of the other modern “norms” of the Brave New World.

As Theodore explained it to me in detail, the Iranian Jews felt under tremendous pressure to leave after the Ayatollah Khomeini took power, precisely because they had been so supportive of the Shah and of the general Westernization of Iran, against which the Revolution had taken place.

What had happened to Dr. Berlin’s home on Crescent Drive was that some Iranian Jewish developers had solicited the City of Beverly Hills to build a two-story house in a uniformly one-story relaxed California bungalow/hacienda style neighborhood.  These developers, the Samadi family, had, according to Theodore Kyriazis, represented to the City of Beverly Hills and to the neighbors on South Crescent Drive, including Dr. Berlin, that they planned to live in the house they proposed to build.  They showed pictures of their children, nephews, nieces, and grandchildren, and emphasized how they needed a two-story house for their extended family. In Beverly Hills, as long as an extended family is rich, nothing else matters.

As Theodore goes on to explain, however, the Iranian Jews know just how to hoodwink the older, more established (oldest, 1930s arriving Nazi-refugee) German Jews (such as his ex-wife Susan Prinz and her father Reinhardt, true modern Hollywood and Beverly Hills aristocracy, along with Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse and Councilman Gold) and (somewhat later arriving) “Russian Pale” Jews who had transformed the originally WASPY demographics of Beverly Hills into something else.  Even Dr. Berlin wryly describes Beverly Hills now as “a rather above-average Ghetto”.  And indeed, there are very few people with Anglo-Saxon names like Clampett, Drysdale, or Hathaway (of “The Beverly Hillbillies” Fame) in Beverly Hills anymore.  And almost all of those who remain go to All Saints Church or one of the three adjacent Christian Church on Santa Monica Boulevard west of Rodeo—a kind of “inverse” Christian “Ghetto”, one might say, following Dr. Berlin).

Iranian Jewish fraud, according to Theodore, is the most widespread and pernicious in all Los Angeles, “they are the absolute worst”, he says.  “They come in and show you all their family: their little children and tell the City they are going to live there, but from the beginning they are going to just flip it immediately, sell it as soon as they are done.  These people are the worst of the worst.  All the Jews, they are famous you know, for wanting money, but these Iranians they came here with Jewels in their girdles, their bras, and their panties.”  (Theodore clearly has a low opinion of Iranian Jews, but he is not alone: another friend of mine, Julia Gelb, a “Russian Pale” Jew from Belarus, once filed a Federal Civil Rights Complaint against her Iranian Jewish landlords in Beverly Hills alleging genocidal intent of the Iranian Jews against the Russian Jews.  Dr. Berlin simply allows as how “they are not my favorite people.”).

Anyhow, the Complaint attached above raises a number of very interesting constitutional issues concerning the Beverly Hills Municipal Planning Code and Planning Commission regarding regulatory takings, administrative discretion, arbitrary and capricious application and enforcement of the laws, and other issues.  

Ferguson Riots Highlight Inequality in America (again): A Modest Proposal

Race has become a cover for all kinds of perversity in America. Rioters in Ferguson, Missouri, are taking steps to secure the suspension of the Constitution and the abolition of due process of law because the Grand Jury’s decision to render “No Bill” in regard to Officer Darren Wilson shows that “it is OK to shoot black men in America” as more than one incendiary commentator has written.

The problem is that the police shoot EVERY color of man, woman, and child in America (and quite a few animals).  The problem is that American police are all armed to the teeth and many seem to believe they have the right to shoot absolutely everybody, anytime. The problem is that the police are armed and American citizens (typically) are not.  This must end.  The word “Police” has a very different etymological origin and history from the French “Gendarmes”—but the French word (etymologically “gens d’armes” replacing earlier “hommes d’armes” ) encapsulates the concept of “armed people” against “unarmed people.”  The English word “Police” most likely came to England with the Spanish Inquisitorial advisers and counselors brought into the Tudor Realm with Catherine of Aragon, mother of “Bloody Mary.”  “Policia” is the Spanish word, related to German “Politzei” which traces to the reign of Charles V, King of Spain and Hapsburg Emperor or Germany who succeeded King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella.

I am writing to propose to you that the shooting in Ferguson is indeed all about inequality.  But the inequality that I perceive is political and functional, not racial.  Black Americans, Hispanics, and (at least some) Whites are all being deceived into the notion that power is based on race in America.  Power is based on control over weapons, and the legitimate use of the same.

And the solution is really quite simple: we must abolish, now and forever, both the concept and the function of a specialized branch of government called “the Police.”  So this is my modest proposal: ARM THE PEOPLE, ABOLISH ALL POLICE FORCES, or at least disarm them and deprive them of any special authority over life, liberty, and property. “Police” units should be limited

The modern American and (really worldwide) concept of the “Police” embody and reflect the Anthropological and Cultural Evolutionary formulary notion that “The State” comes into existence only when there is a “monopoly of legitimate violence”. [“States” in the Anthropological, Cultural Evolutionary {i.e. “Prehistoric”} Scheme of things replaced tribes, chiefdoms {= Post-Mosaic, Biblical “Judges”}, and all other “pre-state” political forms of less elaborately evolved, less severe socio-functional integration].

The modern English word “Police” does not predate the reign of Henry VIII in England and Wales.  Etymologically, the concept of “the Police” equates with Latin “Polis” (= city) and “Policy” (lower level law, norms with official sanction slightly more formal than mere customs or practices, but not nearly so formalized as statutes).  

To abolish Inequality in America, as I wrote above: we must absolutely, positively, now and forever abolish the police.  People, to be free, must be “self-policing”.  The question here is: can the state exist without Police?  Or will we sink into the anarchy of the Scottish Clans and the Vikings without police forces?  (OK, were Scottish Clans and Viking tribes really “lawless?”  Were the pre-Colombian Indian Tribes of the Americas really “lawless”?  Were the Israelites “Lawless” when ruled by “Judges” before the appointment of Kings under Saul, Samuel, David, and Solomon).

OR, can (popularly administered, i.e. “community based”, egalitarian) LAW and DUE PROCESS OF LAW ALONE determine what violence is legitimate or not?  Are people capable of self-government in a complex society?  I think they are, although certain “old-fashioned” norms should perhaps be restored.

The police are increasingly an unqualified abomination all over America because they are militarized, and show increasing disregard for human (and animal) life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  The structural apex of the modern United States as a “Police Nation” (as the late great South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond decried, denounced and predicted in his “Dixiecrat” Southern Democratic breakaway platform in 1948) took shape (appropriately enough) formed by the hands and minds of rulers with truly Royal Blood. The seeds of the transformation to a police society planted under Abraham Lincoln and they sprouted over the next decades.  But the apical hierarchy of a “Police Nation” was only set, in 1908, when the Republican “Progressive” President, Theodore Roosevelt’s, Attorney General Charles Joseph Bonaparte created the FBI.  

The creation of the FBI, destined to be ruled by a despotic monarch of sorts, J.Edgar Hoover, for 48 years from 1924-1972, was a truly royal event because Attorney General Charles Joseph was the grandson of Jerome Bonaparte, who in turn was the youngest brother of Napoleon the Great, Emperor of the French.  Jerome Bonaparte’s title was King of Westphalia, 1807-1814, a German “puppet State” under the Bonapartist transformation of Europe following the French Revolution.  “Gens d’Armes” were a key element of the Bonapartist bureaucracy, who far exceeded the number and power of any such royal agents who had ever existed among the “oppressive” Bourbon monarchs of the previous millenium since Charlemagne.  

Twenty five years later, at the “accession” of the (at that time) most unconstitutional and anti-Democratic American “King” Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1933, the police state already had widespread public acceptance.  The “police” everywhere became a major instrument of governmental “welfare”, with the creation of hundred or more different Federal “Policy Enforcement” (i.e. “Policing”) agencies which coordinated with state and local “Police” in the regulation of the economy and every day life, which most Americans now accept as “normal” and take for granted.

As much as I dislike the “Progressivism” of Theodore Roosevelt or the “New Deal” Socialism of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, it cannot be said that people lack the power to “will themselves into socialism” through democratic process, or that socialism and constitutional government are entirely, wholly, incompatible—although socialist restrictions on the rights to contract freely and own property “in fee simple absolute” inevitably conflict with the American Constitution of 1787, as amended by the Bill of Rights in 1791 and even by the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868.  

I cannot say the same of Police Power.  Putting guns in the hands of a few people against the many is absolutely, positively inimical to the American way of life.  

Let us think for a moment about other privileges which have defined politically and social powerful classes: such as the right to ride horses.  First Latin Equites, then French Chevaliers and Spanish Caballeros all designate and refer to this special technology or mode of transportation which for nearly 4000 years defined the military elite of society (Georges Dumézil’s “Second Function”—physical force, which in the United States Constitution found expression in Article II, the Executive Branch).  

Among the Spanish Colonial Elites in the New World, from California and New Mexico to Southernmost Chile and Patagonia, the rights to ride a horse and carry firearms were limited to the Hidalgos of the Criollos (“Creole”) or Peninsular (Spanish born) aristocracy.  Indians, in the 18th Century, were required to apply for special permission to acquire either “elite” technology (horses or guns).  Such applications for permission were “badges and incidents” of subservient status as conquered people.  

Similarly, in the modern US, armored motor vehicles and automatic weapons are restricted by law to the police.  

“We the people” are now the subservient status and conquered people in our own nation.  

So we should all support the Ferguson Rioters, insofar as their complaints can be construed as an objection to police power, but we must eschew and ignore the racial rhetoric, and focus on the real problem, which is the State’s Monopoly of Legitimate Violence. Our position must be that ALL forms of monopoly are inimical to Constitutional Government.

When is a Pastor Embezzling from a Church? As the Feast of All Saints Approaches—is it time to Open the Barry Taylor Case to real inquiry as to all sides?

http://blogs.christianpost.com/time-for-everything/how-to-spot-a-pastor-or-priest-stealing-church-funds-16556/

I have not written on the Barry Taylor fiasco at All Saints Church in Beverly Hills for several weeks now.  It is not because my opinion has changed but just because… I have too much else going on in my life (LAME, LAME excuse, I know).  

Typically, the Feast of All Saints is the highlight of my own personal Church year.  Like so many modern (and historical) Christo-pagans, I love Halloween and Samhain, All Saints, and Day of the Dead/All Souls Day for their syncretic qualities, in both Europe and Mexico (translated to America), crossing the boundaries between ancient and contemporary religious worship and social customs.  One of my local chauffeurs (or more properly, in Spanish, “choferes”, Alberto Felipe, a hative Zapotec from Oaxaca), needed extra money for his mother to prepare the family altar in East L.A. for the Día de los Difuntos.  But, also I was confirmed at All Saints in Beverly Hills when I had just turned 14, in April 1974, and my parents’ Oxford Movement “home away from home” Church in London was All Saints on Margaret Street in London W1W, City of Westminster, in Fitzrovia, but near the triangulation point of that neighbourhood with Marylebone, and Soho.  So All Saints seems very important in my life.

And so I remain outraged that I found there one block from the intersection of Rodeo Drive and Santa Monica the first Episcopal Priest who ever really and truly moved me and inspired me to think, even to change my thinking, and he has been fired, forced to resign, on the flimsiest of charges, and this all just hits WAY too close to home.

Barry’s new home in Brentwood is a small “liberal” Lutheran Church in Brentwood on Church Street which looks every bit of the marginal suburban Church that it is.                                                 (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Village-Church-of-Westwood-Lutheran/116610431697541).  The Village Church is just not one of Walter Christaller’s “Central Place” the way All Saints Beverly Hills, in the heart of Los Angeles really and truly is.                                      (http://geography.about.com/od/urbaneconomicgeography/a/centralplace.htm).    So the presentation of “the Gospel according to Barry Taylor” (a book which I told him he should write on more than one occasion during the past two years), will be marginalized and pushed to the side.  This cannot be coincidence.

As the Feast of All Saints Approaches, the magnitude of the Tragedy and Travesty just keeps getting bigger. 

The question of the mere propriety of the charges against Barry which led to his forced resignation continues to grate at me: is it really “embezzlment” (in the sense of a misappropriation of funds or a breach of trust with the Congregation) for a priest to use funds from his own sermon’s collection plates for any expenses related to his role as a priest?

One June 13 2013 article I found on-line, “How to Spot a Pastor or Priest Stealing Church Funds,” the web-address I cited above at the outset of this note, suggested: 

“Here are four possible signs that money is being embezzled by religious leaders.

  1. The pastor or priest lives an extravagant lifestyle.
  2. The church leader regularly fails to turn in receipts when using the church or ministry credit card.
  3. The church sends you a receipt for donations and the amount listed doesn’t match your own records of what you have given. (Anonymously given cash offerings will not be tracked.)
  4. The church suddenly starts showing large unexplained debts.”

NONE of these factors were alleged to have manifested themselves at All Saints, Beverly Hills.  NO NOT ONE. 

Except that every one of Barry’s friends to whom I have spoken have affirmed that he NEVER USED a Church Credit Card or Charge Account and NEVER PRESENTED RECEIPTS for reimbursement from his expenditures.  And it is undeniably true that the ONLY member of the Clergy at All Saints housed in a somewhat extravagant manner is the Rector, Reverend Stephen Huber himself, complete with servants and a nearly unlimited entertainment budget—as is totally befitting of the neighborhood.  But Barry Taylor did not partake of such luxuries….not perhaps by choice, but because of internal Church Policies.

Churches are now regulated by the IRS under 501(c)(3).  This is the provision by which they maintain their Tax-Exempt Status.  The IRS is one of the major symptoms of alien domination and domestic slavery in the United States (of Untied Constitutional constraints) today.  There are those who believe that Churches who seek IRS protection are voluntarily serving Caesar rather than God—and yes, that was part of Barry’s Second Sermon at Westwood Village Lutheran Church two weeks ago.

A couple of years ago, Glenn Beck, one of whose “Reclaim America” Rallies I attended in Orlando back in the Spring of 2010, had asked Pastors to defy 501(c)(3) and preach on religion for at least one Sunday.(http://www.glennbeck.com/2012/09/27/pulpit-freedom-sunday/) I believe it was Stephen Huber’s First or Second Year as Rector of All Saints, when Barry’s alternative service was consigned to the small All Saints Chapel, before it was given full AS2 Status in the main Church, but Steve made it clear that All Saints WOULD NOT participate in “Pulpit Freedom” Sunday and that it planned on obeying all IRS regulations and that all IRS agents, officers, and tax collectors were welcome at All Saints.  The Gospel Truth and Christian validity of admitting Tax Collectors and (all other) Prostitutes to Church is unquestionable in light of the “WWJD?” formulaic question.  Jesus would invite the Publicans, and possibly even some Republicans (say I, speaking as both a former President of Tulane College Republicans,and one of the few Confessing Harvard graduate school Republicans known ever to have lived, a supporter of both the Buckley brothers and Ronald Reagan, both as California Governor and President of the USA, and of Pat Buchanan, and of Texas Representative Ron Paul both as congressman and presidential candidate, but also as one who has become strangely intolerant of and uninterested in Senator Rand Paul, whose emails have become very “spammy” rather than welcome information in my inbox).

But in spite of the Reverend Huber’s Gospel accuracy that we should tolerate tax collectors and IRS officials in our midst, I thought his message AGAINST Pulpit Freedom was something of a cop out. (and compare also: http://www.alliancedefendingfreedom.org/pulpitfreedom). And I think that Huber’s and the Bishop’s “paper pushing” attack on Barry Taylor was wrong, untrustworthy, and generally, MORALLY unworthy.  

Great men like the Reverend Barry Taylor need to be preaching at “Central Places” to reshape and reform the Episcopal Church, and to guarantee the transformation and survival of the Christian Faith into the current millennium.  Things cannot be forever as they have been.  They must Change.  Barry Taylor Represents Change.  Barry Taylor needs a Centrally Placed Pulpit from which to Preach.  If All Saints and the Episcopal Church cannot accept the indictment of hypocrisy which the dismissal of Barry Taylor has leveled upon them, the members of the Church need to revolt, and to demand a “new birth of freedom” in the Episcopal Church—a new birth of Christian life and authenticity.  

Strange indeed that Barry reminds me more than anyone of the Irish Catholic John Dominic Crossan, with whose work I first became familiar when he visited for a fortnight at Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach (also in the Spring of 2010).  But unlike the highly academic Crossan, Taylor takes his message to the people.  And it seems that All Saints has ERASED all of Barry’s Recorded Sermons and DELETED all of his contributions over the years at All Saints, and this is one of the greatest tragedies in the English Church, comparable on a small scale to the monstrous destruction and abolition of the monasteries and the confiscation of their property under King Henry VIII.

The Confederate Flag, Constitutional Slavery, and Constitutional Freedom

https://www.facebook.com/pages/What-is-the-Confederate-flag-about/194319327272913

The Confederate Flag, like the Confederate States of America, was all about Constitutionally Limited Government and FREEDOM. It seems ironic to some, an irony exploited by those who think shallow thoughts, that those most dedicated to personal liberty indisputably believed that they were “Free to Keep Slaves”. I have considered this syllogistic problem and believe it to be inherently true that the Confederate Government WAS more committed to freedom than the Union.

https://www.facebook.com/TheConstitutionOfTheCSAExplained

Absolute individual freedom, under any coherent system of law, WOULD include the power to sell oneself into slavery, because slavery is just the ultimate power of self-determination (to extinguish one’s power to self-determination. Individual freedom, however, is utterly incompatible with vast governmental power to protect individual rights.  “The greater degree of governmental protection of individual rights, the greater degeneration of individual freedom.

In the United States, the ultimate proof of this fact is that more blacks are now in jail than were ever held in chattel slavery, and the direct “honesty” of the system of slavery has been replaced by an elaborate ruse and deception committed by the government in the name of “due process of law.”  

Because today is the 76th anniversary of Orson Welles’ Famous “War of the Worlds” Radio Show, http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/welles-scares-nation, it seems appropriate to ponder the American War Between the States as the first of a trio and as such the 19th Century predecessor the two great subsequent Marxist-inspired “Wars to Change the World” which followed it in the Twentieth (aka “The Great War” of 1914-1918″ and “The Good War” of 1939-1945, more commonly called World Wars I and II).  What is really more horrible to contemplate: Alien invasions from another planet or “friendly invasions to save us from ourselves” launched by our do-gooding neighbors and relatives in the world?  What is worse?  Death by alien marauders or slavery in concrete, unescapable prisons built to promote “the general welfare?”

Just last week (Tuesday 21 October 2014), I attended a City Council Meeting in Beverly Hills, California, where the Mayor and Council were debating, among other things, the “absolute necessity” of posting armed guards in every school, starting with Beverly Hills High School, in that elite, but now largely “alien” (i.e. foreign-born) enclave of Los Angeles, and of building walls around all schools which are higher and more impenetrable than the walls around the White House, which were recently scaled by a single intruder.  THE PRISON PLANET HAS COME HOME!!!!   Wow, you know, what a concept?  Walled public schools patrolled 24 hours a day by armed Guards in one of the richest zip codes of America and the World—that sounds like the American Dream AND the best way to provide a productive learning environment for its children, doesn’t it?  We all know that the guards will be too busy protecting the kids from attacks by ISIS to use their power to harass the High School Students, don’t we now?  (Anyone who doesn’t see the obvious sarcasm here is free to go jump into the nearest body of water deep enough to drown him or herself.)

The American Criminal Justice system is indeed Criminal but it contains no justice and is hardly American except in its geographic origin (but not its boundaries).  The American Criminal Justice system as it currently operates depends on the government’s ability to coerce individuals into plea bargains which render the “pleading” individual into little more than an ordinary slave for the rest of his life—except that his life belongs to the soulless government, not to an individual who might show kindness or cruelty or both (as most humans do).  

In Britain, political legal scholars often debate the limits of the power of Parliament. “Is the Power of Parliament Absolute?” goes the first question. “Yes,” is the first answer. So can Parliament delegate all its power to a dictator, or indeed, to the Queen from whom (historically speaking) the Power of the Parliament (legally, formally) derived? “NO”, say the commentators. “Well, then, the power of Parliament is not Absolute.”

We see relics of this problem in modern legal question regarding the rights of living people to sell kidneys or other organs in other to keep other people alive. This is considered a crime “for the benefit of the individual” who might otherwise sell parts of his own body and thereby reduce his own life expectancy. But those who support abortion support a form of “slavery”, declaring the right of a woman to abort that part of her body which has the undeniable status as a separable (just not yet separated) human being.

And of course, the modern STATE endorses all kinds of slavery under different names: prison, “the voluntary income tax”, “criminal liability for borrowers accepting bank credit applications containing false statements prepared by bank officers”.

I think our Confederate ancestors opposed the notion that the GOVERNMENT had the power to hold anyone in slavery, and therein is the resolution to the syllogistic dilemma: does the Constitution exist to limit the power of the government to enslave or did the Nation commit, through the Declaration of Independence, to force “equality” among “all men” and so to abolish the freedom of individuals to own property in their own bodies, and to sell this property.

Christian Victory at Lepanto in 1571—preserved Western and Northern Europe to become the Greatest Civilization on Earth for the Next Four Hundred Years—now subject to reversal by fiat of Northern & Western European Governments?

Today in 1571, the Austrian Hapsburg Emperor of Germany, allied with the Kingdom of the Poles and Republic of Venice, and others, defeated the Ottoman Empire and so built a wall against the conquest of Europe by Islam that lasted until the Ottoman Empire finally “withered away” in the late 19th century and disappeared, with dramatic, synchronic irony, in the same years as the Hapsburg Empire of Austria-Hungary.  

In Southern California, there is a town named after a Christian “Soldier Saint” and warrior hero who died 115 years earlier after successfully defending Belgrade in Serbia from the Ottoman onslaught a mere three years after the final capture and Conquest of Constantinople in 1453, which marked the end of the millennium-long existence of the Greco-Roman “Byzantine” or “Eastern Roman Empire”—a true “thousand year Reich” in world history (perhaps the first and [by that time in history the only] complex nation-state formation, in fact, ever to exist for so long).  

That town is San Juan Capistrano—named after an Italian born Saint John of Capistrano who died of the bubonic plague in Ilok in Croatia shortly after the Battle of Belgrade in 1456, which he had won in alliance with the Hungarian General and Dux Bellorum John Hunyadi.  Even though he was about 70, Saint John led his own troops into battle personally.  Saint John died on October 23, 1456 and that is his day in the Catholic Calendar—although for about 80 years he was celebrated on March 28, 2014, just two days after St. Joseph’s Day, when the swallows are supposed to return to the oldest European Settlement in Orange County (founded, symbolically enough, in 1776).  

My, how Europe has changed…..

Last month, Dr. Tomislav Sunic came from Croatia to Southern California to lecture (ostensibly) on the Muslim invasion of Europe and the dangers of multiculturalism.   Some, notably Rodney Martin of the American Nationalist Network and American Nationalist Association, felt that Dr. Sunic’s talks were too “soft” on the enemies of multi-nationalism.  This is an argument that probably a dozen people in the world care about, but since I was drawn into the argument, I mention it.  

Since leaving the United States, Dr. Sunic went back to Croatia and then to Hungary, where he was to attend a Conference which was suppressed by the police, even in beautiful (and normally quite conservative) Budapest:

Defying the Budapest Ban: The Rebel vs the Dissident

October 7, 2014 — Leave a Comment

Tom Sunic

Despite the ban by the Hungarian government, the NPI conference did take place in Budapest on October 5, albeit in a truncated version but with an air of rebellion and emotional intensity. A day earlier, despite the arrest of the NPI Chairman Mr. Richard Spencer, despite constant police surveillance of all NPI guests, and despite the fact that there were only two official speakers, the conference turned out to be a surprising success.  The distinct possibility of a police crackdown on the venue did not prevent more than 70 people from attending the dinner and listen to the speeches delivered by Jared Taylor and myself.  Two journalists, one from the BBC, the other from the German dailyDie Welt, covered the event and interviewed the speakers (BBCDie Welt).

The genesis, the unfolding, and the subsequent end of the NPI event in Budapest, including the earlier arrest of  Richard Spencer, have been more or less  objectively  reported  by friendly  websites.  What lessons can we now draw? Here are some eclectic remarks and tentative suggestions,  from the lexical, legal, philosophical and sociobiological perspective.

Legality and Legitimacy 

The well -planned and well-advertised NPI conference scheduled to take place in Budapest from October 3 to October 5 as well as the shortened version, were in clear violation of a previous legal decision reached by the Hungarian government. One must emphasize that the official ban had not been decreed by local Antifa groups,  leftist hacklers,  paleo-communist students, LGTB agitators,  or some Jewish lobby—although, of course, one cannot rule out at all that these organizations had earlier put mighty pressure on Viktor Orban’s  government to ban the conference. Had the Leftists or the Antifas, instead of the government of Hungary, tried to disrupt the planned conference of their own,  as is so often the case in Germany, the NPI would have at least enjoyed some semblance of legal protection.

This was not the case. The Hungarian government ban was an official ukase right from the start. The ultimate consequences were to be reckoned with.  About the reasons of the ban, or about those who might have been behind it, one could speculate for years and never arrive at one single and persuasive conclusion. State legality, as the German legal scholar Carl Schmitt extensively wrote long time ago, lies often in contradistinction to state legitimacy. The ex-Soviet Union, or the present day North Korea, or Cuba for that matter, were and still are states abiding by the rule of law.  To what extent, however, the rule of law in these countries has a legitimate foundation  — well, this remains a very different story.

Lexicon and Locutions

The NPI dinner- talk was not a “racist gathering “or a “White supremacist” Oktoberfest or “Spencerfest,” as some media had derisively announced.  The shorthand version of the NPI conference took shape in the form of a dinner where the two speakers delivered their academic talks in front of approximately 70 guests. All the guests in attendance can be described as non- conformists and free thinkers of European extraction who had arrived to the venue from all parts of the world not to indulge in alleged nationalist and racist ravings, but to hear and meet other likeminded non-conformist individuals. The prime focus of the speakers’ lectures was the aberrant nature of multicultural mendacity of the System and the necessity for the unity of all the peoples of European extraction. In this sense, conference, although modest in size, was of historic importance.

The first conclusion one can draw:  The masters of the discourse of the System were nervous and afraid, which could best be seen in the unnecessary overreaction of the Hungarian government and the big publicity the NPI received thereafter. The System master plan backfired.  Undoubtedly, the main problem facing most White nationalists in the USA and Europe is how to come to grips with the terror of the liberal meta-language and its signifiers whose signified are being deliberately doctored up anew by the System and its scribes. Relatively new locutions such as  “hate speech,” “White supremacists,” “fascist,”  “neo- Nazis”, have been in use in the mainstream media  for a very long period of  time — to the point that they have by now lost their original meaning and their judicial weight, even among those who use them as shut-up words against modern non-conformists, rebels and heretics.

In fact, these signifiers have by now become a badge of honor for any would be non-conformist rebel, regardless of his or her ideological stripes. (Historical note: Leo Trotsky, a Bolshevik of Jewish origin was also dubbed “fascist” by Stalin in 1939, as was the former maverick communist head of the Yugoslav state, Josip Broz Tito). White nationalists in the EU and USA should start re-appropriating their own discourse and avoid insignia reminiscent of the fascism or National Socialism of the 1930s and 40s.  Why not use words, such as “Euro –American heretics,” or “European rebels” instead of the value loaded locution “White nationalist“  — a locution that  originated in the fevered brains of the thought police like the SPLC and the ADL?

Rebels vs Dissidents

Right in forefront of the first circle of Dante’s Inferno we encounter opportunists of all stripes. Let us be honest. Yes-men and sycophants make up the vast majority of citizens in any contemporary Western society.  Both the Hungarian Prime minister Viktor Orbán and his head of the police, himself a former big time communist police officialSándor Pintér,  had started their career as  communist youth members, i.e. komsomolci in  the  former communist Hungary.

Alas, old dogs cannot be taught new tricks! Their homo sovieticus phenotype may have changed, but their communist genotype has remained the same. They, along with practically all East European political elites, will dance to the music of any new world hegemon — if historical circumstances require it. This is known as the “German syndrome,” as for example when the German government needs to prove over and over again and beyond any public doubt that Germany is a more philo-Semitic country than any other country in Europe.  Not long ago politicians in Eastern Europe avidly hurried to the Kremlin in order to display their communist party loyalty. Now, in order to display their liberal credentials the same ones and their younger liberal progeny, even if not invited, avidly hurry to Tel Aviv, with all due subsequent genuflections in Washington DC and Brussels. The same could be said about many modern academics in the USA and the EU who privately share every word of the NPI speakers, but who publicly realize that systemic brownnosing to the System pays off much better than upholding their honor.

Many non-conformists  of European extraction, aka White nationalists, make a serious mistake when using synonymously the words ‘dissident’ and  ‘rebel.’  Many anticommunist dissidents who had come from the Soviet Union to the USA during the Cold War remained self-proclaimed dissidents, yet learned quickly how to fawn over their new masters. Hundreds of them have made glorious careers as advisors and professors in the USA.

But they are not rebels; they never questioned the other side of the same System. The writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn was a rebel. On the other hand, Alexander Sakharov, the human rights preacher and the former Soviet party hack who transformed himself into a Western anticommunist, was not a rebel. Sakharov preferred American fame and glitz even if it implied selling out his soul twice. Rebels never sell out to any Mephistopheles even if they sometimes unwittingly conjure up bad spirits that turn against them. Rebels not only question the prevailing regime; they question themselves and their own ideas 24 hours a day.

In classical literature we encounter true rebels, as for instance in the works of Ernst Jünger, or in the dramas of Friedrich Schiller. A rebel never sells out.  Richard Spencer is a true non-conformist and rebel and a true hero, precisely because he would reject these flattering labels. He did not crave the media limelight, nor did he  mimic a heretic, like so many “right-wingers” or Hollywood nutsies do.  He fought for a simple right to free speech. A rebel is a man of impeccable character and of absolute moral integrity who puts the interests of his community above his own private interests, and above the interests of his family.

One could illustrate the spirit of the rebel by the quote of the philosopher Emile Cioran: “A rebel never expects anything from anybody; neither from people, nor from gods.”

What time is it? It is a Time to Murder and Create….

Ecclesiastes 3 King James Version

3       To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3          A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5           A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7         A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8        A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?

10           I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.

11          He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

13         And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.

14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

16              And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.

17        I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

18            I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

19          For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

20          All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?

Was Barry Taylor Just a Bush (Gourd? Calabash?) in the Desert? A Whale of a Tale (about Jail) and The Delphi Method at All Saints Church….

Jonah’s bush or gourd was a gift from God to which Jonah had no right—he had not labored for it, it just appeared and was gone.  Just like Barry Taylor in the lives of the AS2 Congregation… Are human relations in Church of no more value than that bush or gourd? Must we really accept the arbitrary and capricious sudden appearance and departure of others in our lives as a given? Should the Church promote such acceptance of the shallowness of the social order, especially a small Church like All Saints, Beverly Hills?

The Bible has some curious small corners, hard to interpret and harder to relate to real life, and one of them is the book of Jonah. Last Sunday in Church, the first reading (before the Psalm and Gospel) at All Saints in Beverly Hills was from that curious corner.  As of September 21, the last Sunday of Summertime…  many at all Saints were still reeling from the sudden resignation of the Reverend Barry Taylor.   The 11:30 AS2 time slot was organized into a “Delphi Style” organization of small study groups… with “group leaders” handling 4-6 people in small groups to make sure that individual views were isolated and prevented from forming a coalition.  Yes, I know all about Delphi as a strategy for “creating the appearance of consensus” by preventing communication under the guise of facilitating it, and I was totally shocked to see this at All Saints in Beverly Hills, so I walked out rather than be part of the charade…..  I hate all “NWO” patterns of social manipulation, and this is just one of the most transparent classics. Churches faced with a crisis should meet as a Congregation….and like-minded folk that way can seek each other out.  This was something else entirely.

Anyhow, at the 10:00 (traditional) service, one of the junior associate rectors delivered a sermon on a theme that I can only call the fragility of social obligation and the acceptance of arbitrary fairness.  This is a problem in Christianity, and law and religion generally I think.

Nothing could be more arbitrary and capricious than God’s command to Jonah and Jonah’s unwilling acceptance and compliance and total frustration at the end.  

The famous part of this book’s story is that Jonah spends three days of incarceration (for “contempt of God?”) in “the belly of a fish”.  Everyone knows the story of Jonah and the Whale… even if you’ve just heard the song from George Gershwin’s jazz opera “Porgy and Bess” about it: “The Things that your liable to read in the Bible, they ain’t necessarily so.”  

Oh Jonah, he lived in de whale,
Oh Jonah, he lived in de whale,
Fo’ he made his home in
Dat fish’s abdomen.
Oh Jonah, he lived in de whale.

Attorney Clarence Darrow also famously cross-examined William Jennings Bryan on this point and other Biblical oddities like Joshua making the sun stand still while he besieged Jericho….at the infamous Scopes “Monkey” Trial in Tennessee in the 1920s, when a school teacher was prosecuted for the truly outrageous crime of teaching the theory of evolution.  If you haven’t read about the Scopes Trial, you should at least find the movie “Inherit the Wind” (with Spencer Tracy as Darrow equivalent “Henry Drummond”—the names have been changed to protect the guilty) or else Henry Fonda’s monologue on the life of Clarence Darrow of Chicago…. [[[as for the founder of modern evolutionary theory… Charles Darwin’s father Robert, grandfather Erasmus, and in-laws (the family of the fine china artisan and manufacturer Josiah Wedgwood) were solid Church of England supporters…. and I myself have always wanted to reconcile Evolution and Theology….and in Barry Taylor I had found an ally in reconciling these seemingly far divergent lines of collateral evidence….]]]

Jonah 2:10 was, to my mind, solely included in the Bible as a test of anyone’s and everyone’s faith int he literal truth of the Bible….

“And the Lord spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.”  

I want to talk to the Reverend Barry Taylor about this….. whale business…..But few (if any) critics of the plausibility of a human remaining alive for three days in the digestive tract of a Whale, Killer Whale, or Shark… focus on the worse (but far more plausible) aspects of the story:  The Book of Jonah, like the story of the “Sacrifice by Holocaust” of Jephthah’s daughter in the Book of Judges, supports the notion that we must obey God’s express command’s unquestioningly, and without hope for Justice….  Jonah ultimately survives digestion by Whale and goes to Ninevah in compliance with the Lord God’s command… and preaches to the people and they repent… but Jonah is still not really satisfied…. he thinks it was a pointless exercise….which it may well have been.

Jonah was even worse than a Doubting Thomas—Jonah actually got ANGRY at God for making him go on this pointless, fruitless preaching expedition to Ninevah…  Jonah decided he wanted to die (and for all we know, he did, but the Book of Jonah as it has come down to us only has four chapters).  

In the King James Version, the Fourth Chapter of Jonah runs and the whole book ends as follows:

4      But it displeased Jonah exceedingly, and he was very angry.

2         And he prayed unto the Lord, and said, I pray thee, O Lord, was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.

3           Therefore now, O Lord, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.

4         Then said the Lord, Doest thou well to be angry?

5        So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till he might see what would become of the city.

6        And the Lord God prepared a gourd, and made it to come up over Jonah, that it might be a shadow over his head, to deliver him from his grief. So Jonah was exceeding glad of the gourd.

7          But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd that it withered.

8        And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.

9        And God said to Jonah, Doest thou well to be angry for the gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry, even unto death.

10        Then said the Lord, Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for the which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up in a night, and perished in a night:

11     And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?

Apparently the cattle had the last word.  And this is apparently directly relevant to the fate of Barry Taylor and his AS2 Congregation.  Because the accompanying Gospel last Sunday was the almost equally arbitrary tale about “the first shall be last and the last shall be first”—when workers who come in late in the day, close to sunset in fact, get paid exactly as much as those who worked all day. The lesson of this parable, of course, is that there is only one salvation, and “good for one is good for all.”  You don’t automatically make “archangel” or anything else just because you are a cradle to grave Episcopalian, for instance….much to my eternal chagrin….and perhaps yours also, right?

So the bottom line on Sunday September 21, 2014, the Clergy at All Saints told us that Barry Taylor was just like the KJV Gourd or NRS Bush that God gave to Jonah outside of Ninevah.  We did not work for Barry Taylor so we were not entitled to him.  We have to accept God’s (and the Church’s) decisions about the fragility and uncertainty of life and social relations, and when people just disappear from our lives overnight—that’s par for the course and we should just be thankful, I guess, that we ever knew them at all.  

I remain unsatisfied both with the “Whale of a Tale” in the Book of Jonah (God Basically Put this VERY Minor Prophet Jonah in Jail for Three Days for Contempt…. but dressed the jail up as a merely Metaphoric Whale—that’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it)….

I do not accept as legitimate the modern (or ancient) fragility of social relations, or that it is proper for the Church to contribute to the fragility of social relations and reliance on individuals.  Christ supposedly values us all as individuals, not just as a collection of nameless souls….. We, like Dorothy as played by Judy Garland in the 1939 movie version of the Wizard of Oz, have [in the larger society to which we belong] no choice but to accept that, “people come and go so quickly here.”   But in a Church like All Saints, a very small community in a very small corner of the very large City and County of Los Angeles, I think we are entitled to expect more stability and more accountability than we have gotten here….  

I think I will take time this weekend to reread Charles Darwin’s possibly least famous work, “The Formation of Vegetable Mould through the Action of Worms, with Observations on their Habits.”  It seems the proper antidote for plant eating worm in Chapter Four the Book of Jonah (as the Junior Associate Rector said last summer, it must have been a very large worm…. parallel to the extremely large and extraordinary fish/shark/whale in Chapters 1-2).

First Friday of Fall (FFF) & Final Friday of September (FFS)—Equinox, Tuesday, September 23-Friday September 26

Q:   How is the Reverend Barry Taylor just like Jonah’s shady bush outside of Ninevah?  (Jonah is one of the most embarrassing books in the Bible, from the standpoint of those, like me, who “want to believe”.  The Book of Jonah’s four short chapters are filled with oversized man-housing whales which act like jails and tree-eating worms who do Gods bidding and expressions that God cares for wicked Ninevites and their animals…and whose sole moral point is that we must accept the will and acts of God, no matter how arbitrary and capricious, inequitable, and unfair they may seem….)

A:   Apparently because God gave his teaching to us for our temporary comfort only, and what God gives easily, God can take away with equal ease.  We did not create Barry Taylor, so we cannot complain that he is now gone.

Comment: but I have drunk from many wells I did not dig, have been warmed by fires I did not build, and drunk wine from grapes I neither picked nor crushed….and yet I was right to do so, was I not?

“Final Fridays and First Fridays” remind me of the wonderful parties that the late Molly Ivins used to put on in Austin, Texas….at which I was privileged to attend regularly, a long, long time ago, in a gallaxy far away, when Texas was a land of free speech, liberty, and ruled by the WD 40 crowd (“White Democrats over Forty”).  That really WAS a long time ago, wasn’t it?   Molly, born in beautiful Monterrey, in 1944 while some of my cousins were stationed in the Navy there, was a native Californian who tragically died of Cancer at the age of 63 on January 31, 2007—she had so much more to say and write about her adopted state.  Molly’s death, and the loss of her community, was definitely one of the major (contributing) factors prompting me to give up and leave my native state.  And now I’m in California half the time and Louisiana half the time.  I cannot tell in which state I enjoy living more: the food and girls are way better in New Orleans, the shopping and museums are better in Los Angeles…. New Orleans has lots of history and beauty.  Los Angeles has lots of money and power.  I feel at peace in New Orleans.  I feel I am a piece of Los Angeles.  

On this Final Friday of September, First Friday of Fall, I think it is time to go back to New Orleans.  The Reverend Barry Taylor is gone from Los Angeles—it’s now cool enough in New Orleans to enjoy the food and chase the girls…  Summer is HELL in New Orleans…. No time of year is really hellish in Los Angeles.  There was a time (around 1992-1994) when they described the four seasons of Los Angeles as “Earthquakes, Brushfires, Riots, and Floods”—rather like the Four Creations of the Maya Popol Vuh or the Five Creations of the Aztec Calendar Stone….Pierre du Soleil ou Calendrier Azteque.

Well, for me at least it was a very intense summer.  Fall will be quieter, I think, wherever I am.  Summer was so intense I cannot quite remember where my summer began.   For me summer began either in New Jersey or Florida, but without studying my travel records or receipts carefully, I’m pretty sure I greeted the Summer Solstice 93 days ago in either Ocala or Orlando, Florida.  I discovered a really good German restaurant in Orlando (the Bauern-Stube, http://www.bauern-stube.com/).  

That schnitzel & dumpling place was the only good thing I really can say about my excursion to Florida, except that I wrote and prepared a really good appellate brief for a really unworthy client (WTO 12 June EMERGENCY MOTION FOR ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE IN THE FIFTH DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL; 2014 6 12 final Appendix to emergency motion) who ultimately (well, actually, almost immediately) stabbed me in the back… and so I left Florida.

I ended the summer and began the Fall in Beverly Hills, California, in the midst of great turmoil.  On the one hand, I am tortured by the departure of the Reverend Barry Taylor from All Saints in Beverly Hills, especially on such complete absence of notice or warning, amid such dark but unspecified charges “not that anyone plans on pressing charges…”  On the other hand, I brought Croatian ex-Diplomat and New Right Political Philosopher to the Beverly Hills JEM Center where he preached New Right Philosophy to Beverly Hills’ Jewish Community…. I expected some negative reaction here, but instead the negative reaction was all from my fellow conservatives who felt I had done something desperately wrong…. and some even shunned Dr. Sunic as a consequence.   We shall see how all that plays out…. 

It’s called a Strategy of Rhetoric and Politics—Talk to Those who Oppose you!

Over the past week, Rodney Martin of the ANA has taken me heavily to task for arranging for Dr. Tomislav Sunic to speak at the Beverly Hills JEM Center as the guest of Rabbi Hertzel Illulian, in partial response to Rabbi Illulian’s invitation to ME to promote the JEM Center and to initiate a dialogue in answer to the age old question: “why to so many of your people (the gentiles) hate the Jews?”  My First Answer was that Jews Control Hollywood, and Hollywood is destroying America—but the simple truth is that not ALL Jews support the despicably degenerate and immoral values embodied in (most) of Hollywood, in in the person of Rabbi Hertzel Illulian, I have met a Jewish Rabbi who sounds more like a strict old Southern Baptist Minister in his preaching of morality than any member of the Academy or any other Hollywood “Establishment” Grouping.

  • Charles Edward Lincoln Rodney: You ask, “Why do we [AmRen, Sunic, and I suppose, I] so called WN Intellectuals seek dialog with Jews?” Because the first step to change is to confront them with an embarrassing question. I know we need to have a little private chat about this, but let me explain how I in particular came to work with Rabbi Illulian.

    As you may know, I am a “former attorney”, by which I mean I was ordered disbarred first in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, after filing a series of Seven Civil Rights Suits on behalf of WHITES ONLY asserting the same claims for civil rights as are often asserted on behalf of African-Americans and Mexicans (and Vietnamese, Filipinos, etc.) assuming that the law really did afford equal protection to white people. When they (the Federal Judges in Texas) saw I had NO intention of backing down after that initial disbarment in one Court, they indicted me on some idiotic trumped up charges which led to my resignation from the State Bar of Texas “under threat of disbarment” and the imposition of reciprocal discipline in California and Florida. Yes, I was literally licensed, “Coast-to-Coast” at one time and one of my Civil Rights cases on behalf of upper middle class white people made it to the United States Supreme Court (Atwater v. Lago Vista, 2011).

    So, a mere ten years after I graduated from the University of Chicago Law School, by 2002, I found myself disbarred coast-to-coast, but I still wouldn’t give up. I continued fighting because I had absolutely nothing left to lose. I fought in Family Court against the destruction of the Constitution and Family in our Homes. I fought foreclosures and evictions and the destruction of the right of the people to be secure in their persons, homes, papers, and private property.

    I became one of the most hated people (to the Courts at least, and Texas Office of the Attorney General which exists in large part to defend the Courts—no matter how monstrous a conflict of interest that would seem to be) in my home state of Texas, which at one time was the freest state in the Union. In January or 2006, after coming close to closing down the family Courts of Williamson County, Texas, at the insistence of already thenTexas Attorney General Greg Abbott (soon to be elected Governor by fiat…to succeed Rick Perry in the Throne of the Bush Family), I was permanently banned from litigating in the Courts of the State of Texas—even as a pro se litigant, even though the Judge Specifically ruled that I was NOT and could NOT be found to be a Vexatious litigant. Rather, he ruled that I posed too great a threat to the stability and security of the Judicial System of the State of Texas.

  • Charles Edward Lincoln And as if all of that were not compliment enough, on March 25 of 2008, Judge Walter S. Smith, Chief Judge of the Western District Texas, entered a permanent injunction against my litigating in any or all of the Federal Courts of Texas, even Bankruptcy Courts. So by that date, I was deprived of all my civil rights in the State of Texas, and I left the State Permanently. Judge Smith wrote that the injunction was necessary to stop the “crusade” I had “spearheaded among dozens of pro se litigants ..to have the Texas Family Code and Courts declared unconstitutional.”

    BUT STILL I DID NOT GIVE UP MY FIGHT FOR THE CONSTITUTION. In May of 2008, I began litigating against the Constitutionality of the Family Court System in Florida, and that led to another Petition for Certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011.

    In 2010, I was living in Los Angeles and met a wonderful young lady by the name of Julia Gelb, born in Godless Atheistic Russia at the end of the Soviet era in what is now the Republic of Belarus.  Julia was going through a terrible divorce in Orange County. She was Jewish, and what pained her most about her divorce proceedings was that her (soon-to-be) ex-husband was not a religious but a secular Jew who had no intention of raising their children, “in the faith.”

  • Charles Edward Lincoln I saw in Julia’s situation an amazing opportunity to develop jurisprudence and a legal theory that would support AN AFFIRMATIVE RIGHT TO SEGREGATION and “separate development.” I introduced the Orange County Courts to the writings of Dr. Kevin MacDonald and sought to explain that the Jews depended for their preservation of their identity on THE RIGHT TO SEPARATE EDUCATION and SEPARATE CULTURAL IDEOLOGY AND EVOLUTION—in short, that religious Jews Demand the right to remain Segregated and Separate.
  • Charles Edward Lincoln Julia introduced me to the father of her best friend Bracha Illulian, who happened to be Rabbi Hertzel Illulian. Rabbi Illulian was deeply impressed by my work for Julia. The truth is, we needed William D. Johnson or some lawyer of equal standing and sympathetic disposition. But it has never been possible to arrange this for a variety of reasons.

    Still, it became fixed in my mind that the destiny of the Jews as a “People who shall dwell alone, and not be numbered among the nations of the world” was an excellent model for segregation of all peoples.

    I see segregation as a positive good for all people. Segregation is security and a necessary prophylactic against the evils of globalization, which include the attempted abolition of natural evolution, be it cultural or physical.

    Since each of the Bible, History, and Kevin MacDonald’s sociobiology and evolutionary psychology have taught us that the Jews have perfected the ways and means of segregation, and that is why we should learn from them, and praise them for their successful segregation, and sue to establish the same rights for ourselves.

    It may not seem like it, but that is my SHORT answer to your question. Ask questions as you see appropriate…

Barry Taylor, Steve Huber, and Isaiah 59

In RE BARRY TAYLOR: even after a very pleasant lunch with All Saints Rector Stephen Huber on Thursday 18 September 2014 (the day of the failed Scottish Independence Referendum) I still know absolutely no facts or details or real information about the man’s circumstances or the recent history of the past two weeks or so, but I feel the oppressive weight of Isaiah 59:9-11 on my shoulders:

“Therefore justice is far from us, And righteousness does not overtake us; We hope for light, but behold, darkness, For brightness, but we walk in gloom.  Therefore justice is far from us, And righteousness does not overtake us; We hope for light, but behold, darkness, For brightness, but we walk in gloom. we are like dead men. All of us growl like bears, And moan sadly like doves;   We hope for justice, but there is none, For salvation, but it is far from us.”

or if you grew up with the KJV as I did:

“Therefore is judgment far from us,
neither doth justice overtake us:
we wait for light, but behold obscurity;
for brightness, but we walk in darkness.
We grope for the wall like the blind, and
we grope as if we had no eyes:
we stumble at noonday as in the night;
we are in desolate places as dead men.
We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves:
we look for judgment, but there is none;
for salvation, but it is far off from us.”

Steve Huber could not have been any nicer, nor could the stone wall he put up about revealing any details have been any thicker.  It is much easier to attack a man who’s being rude and dismissive to you than one who expresses extreme sympathy and condolences for your sense of loss and talks to you very graciously about life and theology and….everything.

Barry Taylor is apparently in England with his mother now, and will go from there to rest and recuperate in South Africa.  I know this routine: it’s called “running away”.  During the worst summer of my life, at my rock bottom, at my worst times, when I was subject to some of the worst setbacks and disappointments in my life, I went to the Bayreuth Festival in Bavaria, then returned to Harvard to refocus myself on Egypt, then went to England, Greece, and Egypt.  I am a privileged man who has led a privileged life, and I’m glad that Barry’s got similar privileges.  But I still feel that there’s something wrong in the State of All Saints’ Parish….. but Steve Huber has utterly disarmed me from trying to force any issues—-and indeed I have no right to do so…. everyone wants this situation quiet and so it’s going to be kept quiet.  Unlike England and Canada, we have the First Amendment wall of separation between Church and State, and so we cannot demand transparency or public disclosure from Churches as we would if they were part of the government and if (as in England) Parliament still approved the Book of Common Prayer…. (will the UK Parliament soon approve the implementation of Sharia Laws?  Will the Queen or future King still be titled “Fidei Defensor” if that happens?  Luckily, these meditations have nothing to do with Barry Taylor whatsoever).

All I know for sure is that in April of 1974, I was confirmed at All Saints in Beverly Hills by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Robert Claflin Rusack, the then brand-new, newly ordained 4th Bishop of Los Angeles, after completing confirmation classes with Canon Noble L. Owings at St. Thomas the Apostle in Hollywood.

The Church was going through the “New Prayerbook” Crisis (which ultimately “gave birth” to the 1979 Prayerbook we still use…which is now so old and well-established most younger folks cannot imagine what a trauma its introduction created…. I had made myself, my mother and my grandparents proud by learning all the basic prayers and creeds (in both of our English 1662 and American 1928 Prayerbooks) by rote before I was ten, and Canon Owings was impressed too.

But then they changed the prayerbook, and I was frustrated and angry then too. I have been a half-hearted Episcopalian ever since. Too brow beaten and bigoted, I guess, ever to try any other Church seriously, but resentful that I had memorized all my prayers and creeds for nothing. I often still mutter things like “and with thy Spirit”, “remission of sins”, “it is meet and right so to do”, “the quick and the dead” during the normal Rite II services they have everywhere.

I have gone to school, worked, and traveled all over the USA, actually, the world, but I had never met the likes of Barry Taylor anywhere, and when I first heard him preach, I was immediately smitten by his amazingly erudite mixture of pop culture, true insight Gospel, and modern skepticism. As I have said, his series of sermons just last month in August, “Drugs, Art, Sex, and Religion” and “Religion without Illusions” seemed like a major watershed transformational event in my own spiritual life, but it was not over.  I needed to learn so much more from Barry…. and now he’s gone…apparently…..

Part of the reason I loved Barry’s sermons so much was that, although I had been loyal to the Church of my birth, it’s just very hard to “buy” the Bible as truth once you’ve completed a Ph.D. in Anthropology and History, focusing on Comparative Religion and Structural Analysis, ready James G. Frazer’s “Golden Bough” and about ten thousand books and articles written since then, including three hundred or more books about Kingship and Sacrifice as rituals essential to the socio-political lives of the people of Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Polynesia, and the New World—and yes, even pre-Christian Europe and the Near East.  But Barry bridged the intelligence gap between Darwin and Freud on the one hand and Jesus and the Apostles on the other.  

Somehow, in Barry’s sermons, going to Church no longer seemed merely a nostalgic retreat into childhood comfort for me.

POST SCRIPT: WHEN I SAY I HAVE BEEN LOOKING ALL OVER NORTH AMERICA AND THE WORLD FOR AN INSPIRING REASON TO LOVE MY CHURCH AGAIN, I’M NOT KIDDING—I have travelled all over and attended Churches everywhere.

My list of favorite Episcopal Churches in the USA starts with St. Thomas on Fifth Avenue, where I was baptized (I was born in Texas but my academically oriented parents “forgot” to have me baptized until they were about to set sail on the Queen Mary, when I was six months old, and they suddenly realized, “our baby isn’t baptized, what if the ship sinks?” And that is how a baby born in Commerce, Texas in April was baptized in October in mid-town Manhattan. I make it back to New York an average of once a year, and always go to St. Thomas—it has the most conservative and traditional liturgy of any church I know.  They have a phenomenal set of choirs and musical program, as well as the most spectacular altar reredos anywhere I have seen in North of Mexico in the USA or outside of Europe.  

Now my parents were married in New Orleans, where my grandmother had grown up, and as it happened I did my undergraduate college years there at Tulane.   From an early age I knew the Christ Church Cathedral as well as Holy Trinity on Jackson and St. George uptown. Confederate General Leonidas Polk is buried at Christ Church on St. Charles Avenue. In addition to being President James K. Polk’s first cousin, L. Polk was the first Bishop of Louisiana, the founder of the Trinity Church in Natchitoches (where my grandmother was baptized and most of her relatives buried), and the only General in that saddest and bloodiest of all American Wars to wear both a grey uniform and a Bishop’s Mitre.

But they lived in and I spent my elementary school years in Dallas, where I was in the boys’ choir under Russell John Brydon, Jr. at the Church of the Incarnation on Central Expressway, while occasionally enjoying the extravagant displays of wealth at the place somewhat sarcastically called “St. Michael and all Minks” (aka “St. Michael and all Angels”).

During my Harvard years I got to know Christ Church on Cambridge Common, where George & Martha Washington prayed after George took the Command of the Continental Army in the summer of 1775, to rise up against the monarch for whom he had until then prayed as “Our King and Sovereign Lord.”

And then I spent some time working in Palm Beach, Florida, and there my son was Baptized at Bethesda-by-the-Sea on the Feast of the Epiphany in 1993. Later on I lived in Pinellas County and attended the Cathedral of St. Peter there.  I could go on listing all the Anglican Churches in which I have knelt down to pray….but it would grow quite tedious…. from Maui to Fort MacLeod, Moose Jaw, and Moncton in Canada to Manchester, Magdalene College and All Saints Margaret Street in England, to Malta, Montego Bay and Mumbai in what used to be outposts of Empire….it would get VERY tedious….

SHALL WE BUILD A NEW JERUSALEM IN BEVERLY HILLS’ PLEASANT LAND? Can Traditional Christian and Jewish Socio-Political and Cultural Interests Peacefully Coexist? Address these POLITICALLY INCORRECT QUESTIONS on Sunday September 21, 2014, at the Beverly Hills JEM Community Sports Center, starting at 3:00 PM

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 at 9930 SOUTH SANTA MONICA BOULEVARD at the JEM COMMUNITY SPORTS CENTER in BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, WE WILL TRY TO COMMIT ACTS OF UNSURPASSED POLITICAL INCORRECTNESS: Representatives of the Extreme Right will engage in Open DISCUSSION WITH THE JEWISH COMMUNITY ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD.

Rabbi Hertzel Illulian is an extraordinary man. I share with him the dream to build a New Jerusalem in California—a new center of civilization which preserves the traditional values of European Culture and Religion in this most modern of all world cities.

I appreciate the opportunity he has given me, as JEM Community Center’s new Director of Development, to create new programs at the JEM Center. He has given me a steep assignment as well. But I was persuaded to accept the challenge because the good Rabbi is an extraordinarily honorable and upright man, one of the most interesting gentlemen I have met in Los Angeles, as well as one of the most forthright. Rabbi Illulian asked me, when offering me the position, what I could do to explain and change the fact that so many of “my people” (non-Jews) hate Jews.

To that precise end, I have decided to develop a program at the JEM Center of bringing some on the members and representatives of the “Far Right” or even Fascist political movements to speak at JEM.  I think we need to address all the questions that have recently arisen as a result of recent elections in Europe:  IS THE NEW RIGHT IN EUROPE A THREAT TO JEWS?  Is there such a thing as the “Jewish Agenda” which promotes “culturally progressive” notions such as homosexual marriage and mixing of the races?  In Rabbi Hertzel Illulian, introduced to me by Julia Gelb, one of his congregation, I have found a Jewish Gentleman of great erudition who says no.  Rabbi Illulian, like Julia Gelb, opposes both homosexuality and the interracial, interfaith marriages as against God’s law.  In other words, he upholds traditions as much and as fiercely as any Southern Baptist Preacher.  

So what is the conflict between Conservatives of Different segments of what must be in some sense a single evolving Biblical Tradition?  We all start with the same five basic books: Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy, Leviticus, and Numbers, followed by the same Judges, Kings, and Chronicles, and relying on the same Prophets, Great and Small, with Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Daniel as perhaps the greatest of them all?

Have ethnic labels been used improperly to disparage or promote certain socio-cultural or political agendas?  [Can we discuss these things in cool and calm voices, without fighting?] Do Jews have a better track record of maintaining their “group identity” than any other group of people?  Is this an example of cultural choice in socio-biology, or of biological determination in culture?  Is Dr. Kevin MacDonald fundamentally correct in his assessments of the relationships between Jews and Non-Jews in the 19th and 20th Centuries?

I have often noted, and would continue to insist, that the most prominent and politically active Jews in the 19th Century were allied with the forces of cultural conservatism in Europe: England’s Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli (in some sense the author of the British Empire, in that he proposed and procured for the Widowed Victory some quantum of solace in creating and giving her the title “Empress of India”), the Confederate States of America’s leading attorney and diplomat, Judah P. Benjamin of New Orleans, David Levy of Florida (another United States and Confederate Senator), and Sir Rufus Daniel Isaac, Marquis Lord Reading, a Conservative Lord Chief Justice of England and Viceroy of India).  None of these named luminaries of the 19th Century were in any sense Marxists or Socialists, but were in fact solidly allied with traditional Christian Conservatives. So why did the “Socialist” and “Marxist” and in particular the “Cultural Marxist” traditions prevail among some sectors of the Jewish Populations of Europe and North America?

The first of these speakers will be Dr. Tomislav Sunic, a former Cultural Attache to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Croatia, and one of the most brilliant and articulate spokesmen for the so-called “New Right” in Europe. Dr. Sunic is a “part-time Californian” having graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara (Ph.D. in Political Science, 1988). Dr. Sunic will be speaking at JEM Center on Sunday September 21, 2014 at 3:00 PM. I want to invite all of the members and supports of JEM to attend this historical event, and to support me in bringing together many more encounters which can cross the political, cultural, and religious lines of discussion which have too long been banned in the name of “Political Correctness.” I hope that everyone, of every religious, political persuasion, and cultural background, will want to address questions such as: HOW MUCH OF HISTORY IS REALLY MYTHOLOGY? IS EVEN MODERN 20th CENTURY HISTORY REPLETE WITH DISTORTIONS AND LIES WHICH ARE DESIGNED FOR PURPOSES OF “POWER PLAY” TO SUPPORT INTEREST GROUP POLITICS OF ONE GROUP AGAINST ANOTHER?

JEM CENTER IN BEVERLY HILLS TO HOST CROATIAN FOREIGN MINISTER IN DISCUSSION ON THE HISTORY OF ISLAM, JUDAISM, & CHRISTIANITY IN EUROPE

“1400 YEARS OF ISLAMIC IMPERIALISM, FROM THE CALIPHATES to GLOBAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM in 2014″ at 9930 Santa Monica Boulevard, 3:00 PM on SUNDAY, with Dr. Tomislav Sunic, Luke Ford, Rabbi Hertzel Illulian, and William D. Johnson.
YUGOSLAVIA—the federated Kingdom and “land of the Southern Slavs” has vanished (“Gone With the Wind”) from the map of Europe as definitively as the Old South “Confederate States of America,” but Dr. Tomislav Sunic has things to say about both Southern Slavs and the Old South Anglo-Saxons, and he’s coming to Southern California.

100 Years since the beginning of World War I and Nearly 70 Years since the end of World War II, old paradigms are vanishing but the future has never been less clearly foreseeable.

In all of Europe, the Former Yugoslavia is the most heavily contested “real estate”, and it has been this way for over 550 years, since the Ottoman Conquest. DR. TOMISLAV SUNIC, a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) and former Cultural Attaché to the CROATIAN Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Zagreb, Republic of Croatia) will speak at 3:00 PM on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 21, 2014, at the Beverly Hills JEM Community Sports Center at 9930 Santa Monica Boulevard (the Old YMCA Building), Beverly Hills 90212. CALL Robert Stark at 805-280-8188 or CHARLES EDWARD LINCOLN, III at 310-278-9683/Fax 310-278-9684. This event is jointly sponsored by the JEM Center, Rabbi Hertzel Illulian and his new director of Development, Charles Edward Lincoln, III, the AMERICAN FREEDOM PARTY and Attorney William D. Johnson in Los Angeles. All are welcome, refreshments will be served starting at 3:00 PM at the Beverly Hills JEM Center.

Why am I angry? Because in Beverly Hills, more than anywhere on Earth, we need MORE “Drugs, Art, Sex, & Religion” so that we can live a life of “Religion without Illusions”

I have checked and noticed that the webmaster or someone from All Saints, Beverly Hills, has seen fit to delete my posts regarding the resignation of Reverend Barry Taylor from “general view” on its Facebook Page—but the importance of the topic is such that I wish to repost those comments here—in the hopes that they will somehow, someway reach the former Senior Associate Rector at all Saints and that he will make contact with me..  The Church’s suppression of information is deeply disturbing to me!

Why does this just not look like the final message of a wrongdoer about to resign? Something very odd is going on….I do wish you’d call me—local phone 310-278-9683/Fax 310-278-9684. If, by any chance, there are legal ramifications to whatever is going on—well, I can help with that too maybe…

Senior Reverend Barry Taylor, All Saints Church in Beverly Hills, has resigned: WHY?

The circumstances surrounding the resignation of the Reverend Barry Taylor stink of undisclosed Borgia-and-Medici style backstabbing in the Hallowed Halls of All Saints Beverly Hills and the Cathedral of Los Angeles…… Reverend Stephen Huber,  All Saints’ Rector for the past several years, alleged a “financial infraction” protected by “the confidentiality of the employment relationship.”

As a “Senior Associate Rector”…I want to know: how and if so how much would Barry have even had access to Church funds?  Beyond those necessary to manage his service—AS2, and the collection plates therefrom?    

In my personal experience, when a corporation, or a government, wants to get rid itself of someone exemplary, who poses a threat to the establishment, they will either () charge sexual misconduct, () charge financial mismanagement of some kind, () claim that the target individual is insane and mentally unstable.   Since the data are easiest to “fake” on the financial front—especially with regard to someone as well-known as Barry Taylor, the choice was obvious…. And yes, I have indeed experienced similar things—but that was back in “bad old Texas”…. not here in Enlightened Southern California…..

AS2 on one of the last two Sundays 08-31 or 09-07 2014

 

I never dreamt it was possible for AS2 to end so soon....

I never dreamt it was possible for AS2 to end so soon….

Barry Taylor Closeup Photo from ASBH WebThe Reverend Steve Huber, Rector of All Saints in Beverly Hills, is a nice guy.  I don’t know him very well at all, but I certainly have nothing against him.  Or, actually, I HAD nothing against him until yesterday…..  His announcements, by letter and (in Church) sermon, concerning the resignation of Senior Reverend Barry Taylor, however, leaves much to be desired.  

I have been following Barry irregularly since 2009, becoming more-and-more fascinated by his special intellect and style of preaching ever since I first heard him give a sermon based in part on references to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, in 2009, but especially last year and this year (2013-2014).  

Last winter, after Christmas, Barry gave a series of sermons entitled “Roots” using vegetal metaphors to analyze the origins and operations of the Christian Church—and expressly relating Christianity to Astronomy, Biology, Ecology, and Evolution.  

This past August, Barry gave a phenomenal series of four sermons entitled “Drugs, Art, Sex, and Religion” dealing in part with those topics directly and in part with the modernist psychological analysis of such things, beginning with the writings of Sigmund Freud.  

Barry’s Fifth Sermon in August, “Religion without Illusions” (an obvious and not at all illusory) allusion to Freud’s pamphlet pubished 1927: Die Zukunft Einer Illusion, was the culmination and dénouement of this series. But in that fifth sermon of the most amazing series of teachings I have ever encountered in any Church, anywhere, there were signs of something wrong.  Barry seemed constrained to speak his mind as forcefully and fully as usual.  And all month he had been advertising that there would be a reception after the Fifth Sermon on August 31, 2014, for the parishioners and members of his special AS2 congregation to discuss, criticize, and evaluate his presentations.    I know I was not alone in looking forward to that discussion.  But it did not happen.  And there was no explanation.  And Barry disappeared hurriedly out the back door after the sermon.

That was two weeks ago yesterday (August 31).  Last week, September 7, Barry again seemed not quite himself.  And then yesterday Reverend Huber announced Barry’s resignation….reporting that the Bishop of Los Angeles had demanded it.  And Reverend Huber darkly suggested that some sort of “financial infraction” relating to “the confidential nature of the employment relationship” had been committed.

To all that I say “Bollux” and demand to know more.

Police Commit 400 “Justifiable Homicides” per year in the USA! Doesn’t that make you proud and happy to be an American?

http://www.mintpressnews.com/us-police-murdered-5000-innocent-civilians-since-911/172029/

Though Americans commonly believe law enforcement’s role in society is to protect them and ensure peace and stability within the community, the sad reality is that police departments are often more focused on enforcing laws, making arrests and issuing citations. As a result of this as well as an increase in militarized policing techniques, Americans are eight times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist, estimates a Washington’s Blog report based on official statistical data.

Though the U.S. government does not have a database collecting information about the total number of police involved shootings each year, it’s estimated that between 500 and 1,000 Americans are killed by police officers each year. Since 9/11, about 5,000 Americans have been killed by U.S. police officers, which is almost equivalent to the number of U.S. soldiers who have been killed in the line of duty in Iraq.

Because individual police departments are not required to submit information regarding the use of deadly force by its officers, some bloggers have taken it upon themselves to aggregate that data. Wikipedia also has a list of “justifiable homicides” in the U.S., which was created by documenting publicized deaths.

Mike Prysner, one of the local directors of the Los Angeles chapter for ANSWER — an advocacy group that asks the public to Act Now to Stop War and End Racism — told Mint Press News earlier this year that the “epidemic” of police harassment and violence is a nationwide issue.

He said groups like ANSWER are trying to hold officers accountable for abuse of power. “[Police brutality] has been an issue for a very long time,” Prysner said, explaining that in May, 13 people were killed in Southern California by police.

As Mint Press News previously reported, each year there are thousands of claims of police misconduct. According to the CATO Institute’s National Police Misconduct Reporting Project, in 2010 there were 4,861 unique reports of police misconduct involving 6,613 sworn officers and 6,826 alleged victims.

Most of those allegations of police brutality involved officers who punched or hit victims with batons, but about one-quarter of the reported cases involved firearms or stun guns.

9-11 + 13 = Happy Anniversary to a Dying Empire

Last night in Beverly Hills, as if to celebrate the eve of this horrible day, there were searchlight helicopters all over town and police in every alleyway of every residential street.  What happened?  Nothing, so far as I can tell.  But the Police State is operating quite well, thank you.  No problems in filling the American Gulags.  In Los Angeles they arrest and fine people who care for too many unhealthy dogs (if they aren’t veterinarians, but just caring, loving people).  In Beverly Hills they arrest and fine people who have more than 4 dogs… or more than 3 dogs and two cats…. I forget the exact formula, BUT I actually know people who have been prosecuted for such things.

Meanwhile, 9-11 has achieved all of its goals: we have lost most of our fundamental freedoms, we are constantly under surveillance, and our country has been flooded with Muslim immigrants precisely to make sure that no one will ever feel safe again, and the original (White & Black) populations of this country will know that this is NO LONGER their land….Blacks are no longer the “dangerous minority” to whites—Blacks and Whites are both being displaced by Japanese and Chinese Asians at the upper end of the socio-economic scale and Mexican and South Asian immigrants at the lower end.  Hindus and Pakistanis and Arabs come to replace us in the middle class, management and many professions.  So yes, racially conscious politics and policies are still alive and well an living in the United States—it’s just that the world’s all gone Topsy-Turvey.

I would like to see 9-11 transformed into a national holiday where we study “the lies of history” and celebrate our liberation from those falsehoods.  Historical truth can be a source of pride or a source of shame—or just a source of valuable psychological insights into the perversity that is the Human Condition.  9-11 should be remembered as a cautionary tale that we must ALWAYS QUESTION THE FACTS and BE SUSPICIOUS AND SKEPTICAL, NO MATTER WHO TALKS TO US.  

A friend of mine, and she is a friend, albeit a highly emotional and difficult person, becomes very indignant with me when I disagree with her assessment of other people or situations (or even her own situation).  She tells me that friends should support each other no matter what.  I say, “sometimes only your best friend will tell you what you really don’t want to hear.”

She cannot understand that I no more would ever say, “I support my friends, right or wrong” than I would say “I support my country, right or wrong.”  Although I know that, for many years, “my country, right or wrong” was a prayerful mantra among those who still had faith in their government.

No, we all have a fundamental duty constantly to evaluate what is right and what is wrong.  We are not merely entitled to change our judgments, we are duty bound to change our judgments if we learn new facts or see old facts in a new light.  The quest for truth is a constant, never-ending struggle and the moment we abandon that quest, we cease to be human.  

ANYONE today in America who says they still believe the official story about 9-11 is either a retarded fool or a craven sycophantic liar.  And yes, this does appear to include all the editors of “Wikipedia” and “CNN”….and the National Geographic Society….etc. (in other words, everyone in the mainstream).  

Jew Supremacist: “Neo-Nazis on the Rise in Europe, Jews and Minorities Must Take Action”

Charles Edward Lincoln III:

Published on August 23, 2014, in honor of my son Charlie’s 22nd birthday…. Can there be a “Detente” between European Nationalists and Jews, can the two oldest monotheistic religions, based on the same Bible, co-exist and collaborate today as they did in the Nineteenth Century (1815-1914), or, perhaps, right up until the Balfour Declaration?

Originally posted on murderbymedia:

Europe’s woeful economic struggles have resulted in Neo-Nazis and National Front parties gaining a shocking amount of seats in the EP.

Should Jews be concerned that a limp European economy might result in Neo-Nazis sweeping Europe’s next election? Obviously Jews need to gauge the progress of Europe’s economy and the impending uprising in their midst. Passports should be up to date, and excess funds moved to safer shores. Israel might prudently prepare for an influx of European Jews.

Marine Le Pen, the youngest daughter of the founder of The National Front Party, won 27.5 percent of the French vote, appealing to the struggling working class and youth of the country.

Le Pen the elder is one of the more infamous anti Semites of our generation. Jean Marie Le Pen is well known in Europe for his bigotry, racism, and anti Semitism. In 1987 he said that “ the death camps…

Thoughts on State & Federal Immigration Policy,

Charles Edward Lincoln (Edited from Facebook Posts from August 26, 2014):

In late March 2005, it was rumored that US President Bush met with Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian PM Paul Martin at Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, and there secretly planned a “North American Union.”

The meeting was real enough: http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/releases/2005/03/images/20050323-5_la6g0997kjjpg-515h.html 

http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/…/20050323-5&#8230;

President George W. Bush walks with Mexico President Vicente Fox, left, and Canadian Prime…
georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov

But it is very unclear what was actually discussed in the US President’s Crawford retreat: As Wikipedia reports as of today: “In 2005, claims emerged from critics of North American integration that a “North American Union” was not only being planned, but was being implemented by the governments of Canada, Mexico, and the United States. These critics cited the formation of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America and claimed it was an attempt to dramatically alter the economic and political status quo between the countries outside of the scrutiny of the respective national legislatures, a critique heightened by the subsequent publication of the Independent Task Force on North America report which praised the SPP initiative and called for greater economic integration by 2010.”

California’s Governor Brown has already shown by his policies since 2010, and recently overtly confirmed, that all Mexicans are welcome in California, legal and illegal alike, without differentiation.  The national policy emanating from Washington seems no different, “come one, come all, the Party (the Democratic Party? aka the greatest and most successful Fabian Socialist/Communist Party in the history of the World?) has only just begun…”

I think Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown’s current immigration policy in California and noted Anti-Colonialist Barack Hussein Obama’s policy nationwide is more-or-less solid proof that the North American Union has in fact already been implemented. Our leaders just don’t think it important enough to inform the people or bother with obtaining that pesky thing called “the consent of the governed”….from which “all governments derive their just powers…”

Texas Governor Rick Perry right now is pretending to be anti-Immigration, but in 2002 it was he who proposed the “North American Corridor” that linked Canada, the US, and Mexico via one big “Superhighway” roughly parallel to United States Interstate 35 (and the old “Pan-American Highway”) running through Texas. I submit the drama between Perry and the Democrats right now is just “shadowboxing” (which Perry will lose) to cement the demographic union of the three nations, which will, very shortly, be cemented by political union. All we “real” Americans can possibly do is to try to reassert leadership in this Country—and in the future, basically “inevitable” North American Union, and replace the Globalist Concept of NAU with the old-fashioned, traditional American Concepts of Manifest Destiny and, perhaps, the White Man’s Burden, whereby the Anglo-American peoples will retake the leadership of the world. Any other solution will just lead to a catastrophic powerless minority status for the founding WASP population of this Country….and I think that would be a great loss…..myself….for ourselves and for our posterity….and for the rest of the world, ironically, as well. We truly have been the “beacon light of democracy and freedom”….to which ideal almost all other peoples, except some in the Communist and Islamic nations, so desperately aspire.

I am contemplating setting up a Meetup: Who would be interested in a full and open forum about Race-Relations in Los Angeles and Southern California?
Meetup is going to invite potential Racially Conscious Americans to

Race, Lies, and American Politics: Southern California 2014
Description:

Is lying about Race Relations the American Way? In this “Summer of Our Discontent” places like “Ferguson” and “Gaza” are very much on our minds. A year ago it was Trayvon Martin. For several years, immigration across the border has been on our minds. So have race relations become more tense or better since Barack Hussein Obama became President? Do we even dare to talk about it? Or are certain topics taboo? Are we becoming a dishonest nation? Will be open to everyone who can engage in civil, intelligent (non-violent) discussion of RACE. Are you: Interested in the Police Abuse in the USA? Ferguson? the Black Panthers? La Raza Unida? Fascism or Neo-Nazi Race Issues? Israeli Politics? The Fate of White South Africa? Jim Crow in the USA? Can you discuss these issues with the calm of LA Magazine, whose cover story in May 2012 was:
“Race In L.A.
Twenty years after the riots, the city has a different complexion. So what does race mean anymore? Everything
Posted on 5/1/2012 12:00:00 PM by Los Angeles magazine

Ours is a city of many voices and cultures, of disparate backgrounds and conflicting interests. Twenty years ago this month, those fault lines ruptured. Whether you call it an uprising, a riot, or civil unrest, what happened on April 29, 1992, changed Los Angeles and the people in it, prompting Rodney King to famously ask, “Can we all get along?” We still want the answer to be yes. But it’s complicated.

Everyone who’s interested, please write me here or call either 504-777-5021 or 504-777-5023.

Jerusalem, my heart’s true home….

 

This two-hundred year old poem about the dream of England as the Promised Land echoes constantly in my mind and imagination…. can we build a New Jerusalem in America? This was the dream of the Founding Fathers….the “Shining City on a Hill”…. of the grandfathers and even the great-great grandfathers of the original Patriots of 1776…… Or have the Dark Satanic Mills so completely polluted our lands that such a dream is impossible to realize?

JERUSALEM (from ‘Milton’)

by: William Blake (1757-1827)

  • AND did those feet in ancient time 
Walk upon England’s mountains green? 
And was the holy Lamb of God 
On England’s pleasant pastures seen? 
  
And did the Countenance Divine 
Shine forth upon our clouded hills? 
And was Jerusalem builded here 
Among these dark Satanic Mills? 
  
Bring me my bow of burning gold! 
Bring me my arrows of desire! 
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold! 
Bring me my chariot of fire! 
  
I will not cease from mental fight, 
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand, 
Till we have built Jerusalem 
In England’s green and pleasant land.

Anti-Bullying Laws: Why do the SPLC and other Freedom-Hating Groups Promote these?

Mindin' Other People's Business seems to be High Tone, I got all that I can do just to mind my own….

The SPLC wants full time police surveillance of your home, your Church, your neighborhood parks, and above-all your schools….

These so-called anti-bullying laws would be the absolute last nails in the coffins of each of the First, Fourth, Fifth, and Ninth Amendments to the Constitution. “Bullying” is such a vague, ambiguous, and over broad concept, it will take the police state into the farthest reaches of every person’s life.

There will be no right to privacy left whatsoever, no freedom of speech, no freedom of assembly, no security in anyone’s persons, papers, or homes, and no due process of law whatsoever. No reserved rights. Anti-bullying laws are truly the Constitutional Anti-Christ. Think of the possibilities:

(1) Did you just tell a woman that she was by far the most beautiful and desirable in a room at a party or at a beach? Do you really pretend you don’t know what effect that kind of statement has on every other woman (and even the gay men) on the beach? YOU ARE A BULLY.

(2) Did you just refuse to give up your seat on the bus to an ugly person or a drunk or a person on drugs? Do you pretend not to know that you might condemning that person to be arrested or hospitalized? YOU ARE A BULLY!

(3) Did you just walk into the PTA meeting bragging about your son’s or daughter’s straight A+ Reportcard, fourth semester in a row? How do you think that makes all the other parents feel? How does your child think his or her performance makes the other children feel? You are an unfit, antisocial family of BULLIES, and you should all be separated and sent to social re-education camps!

(4) You should never behave in any way that makes you seem superior or “better” than anyone else.

(5) You should behave humbly and quietly, just as they do in North Korea and as they did in Maoist China.

(6) Only capitalist pigs try to show themselves as better than others.

(7) The true communist never attempts to elevate himself above others.

(8) Christian morality, the law of the Hebrew Bible, the ancient codes of Honor among the Greeks, Romans, and Northmen, these are all evil assertions of superiority?

(9) But who are we, who want to impose these anti-bullying laws, to say so? We, who want to outlaw “misbehavior” which we dislike, are the arbiters of good manners and correct behavior in a absolutely egalitarian society, and we will smash all you bullies with our monopoly on Police Power.  Everyone knows or should know that Freedom and Equality are INCOMPATIBLE, and Equality must triumph, and shall forever triumph in the Communist State, over Freedom.

(10)  It is to suppress bullies that we want to make sure that no one has any guns—even though the Colt six shooting Revolver used to be called “THE GREAT EQUALIZER.”  But the government which exists to protect the ignorant slave masses from each other, must make ensure ABOVE ALL that  no equality shall ever subsist between the Police and the People.  The Police, by definition, in any Police State, must be SUPERIOR in every way to the People.  America is already a Police State, but Police Control over EVERY DETAIL OF LIFE is sadly imperfect, and the SPLC with all it’s red-Izod shirted good looking young paid white employees in the malls and city streets, wants to do its part to perfect the Communist totalitarian State in America.

Come children of the Homeland, Dictatorship has raised its Bloody Flag against Us!

La Marseillaise—the greatest of all National Anthems…calls on the people to fight against Tyranny…by bloody Revolution where nothing else works…I think it is safe to say that the U.S. today is in much greater need of a Guillotine on the Washington Mall, in front of the Capitol, than any nation in history ever has been: Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Lindsey Graham….WHEN WILL THE DAY OF GLORY ARRIVE?

Allons enfants de la Patrie
Le jour de gloire est arrivé !
Contre nous de la tyrannie
L’étendard sanglant est levé
Entendez-vous dans nos campagnes
Mugir ces féroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras.
Égorger vos fils, vos compagnes!

Aux armes citoyens
Formez vos bataillons
Marchons, marchons
Qu’un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons

Que veut cette horde d’esclaves
De traîtres, de rois conjurés?
Pour qui ces ignobles entraves
Ces fers dès longtemps préparés?
Français, pour nous, ah! quel outrage
Quels transports il doit exciter?
C’est nous qu’on ose méditer
De rendre à l’antique esclavage!

Quoi ces cohortes étrangères!
Feraient la loi dans nos foyers!
Quoi! ces phalanges mercenaires
Terrasseraient nos fils guerriers!
Grand Dieu! par des mains enchaînées
Nos fronts sous le joug se ploieraient
De vils despotes deviendraient
Les maîtres des destinées.

Tremblez, tyrans et vous perfides
L’opprobre de tous les partis
Tremblez! vos projets parricides
Vont enfin recevoir leurs prix!
Tout est soldat pour vous combattre
S’ils tombent, nos jeunes héros
La France en produit de nouveaux,
Contre vous tout prêts à se battre.

Français, en guerriers magnanimes
Portez ou retenez vos coups!
Épargnez ces tristes victimes
À regret s’armant contre nous
Mais ces despotes sanguinaires
Mais ces complices de Bouillé
Tous ces tigres qui, sans pitié
Déchirent le sein de leur mère!

Nous entrerons dans la carrière
Quand nos aînés n’y seront plus
Nous y trouverons leur poussière
Et la trace de leurs vertus
Bien moins jaloux de leur survivre
Que de partager leur cercueil
Nous aurons le sublime orgueil
De les venger ou de les suivre!

Amour sacré de la Patrie
Conduis, soutiens nos bras vengeurs
Liberté, Liberté chérie
Combats avec tes défenseurs!
Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire
Accoure à tes mâles accents
Que tes ennemis expirants
Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire!

I knew Jim Garrison—he used to hang around the UC Cafeteria at Tulane University in the 1970s

I knew Jim Garrison— my grandfather introduced me to him at a George Corley Wallace for President campaign dinner at Commander’s Palace in 1971, and later, in 1975-1977, Garrison used to hang around the University Cafeteria on the Tulane Campus in New Orleans in the 1970s, until he was elected to the New Orleans Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal, and talk to any student who would listen about his experiences and opinions.  Like Wallace e was a lifelong Democrat but he understood why I chose to be President of Tulane College Republicans and visited our group on two occasions.  He knew that life had kind of passed him by…. that he was prosecuted  by special order to silence him for his writings about the Kennedy assassination  in the aftermath of the attempt on George Wallace’ life. And he knew that most professors at the Tulane Law School, from which he graduated in 1949, thought he was a crank…or at least they pretended to in order to build their own careers.

But in fact, even though Judge Garrison was not Kevin Kostner, and even though the one case of his I use most was one he lost to the ACLU (Dombrowski v. Pfister, 1965), in my opinion Jim Garrison was one of the great heroes of the 20th Century, possibly of all American History.  He saw the truth and he spoke the truth and he lived the truth, although he did not get far enough to finish proving the truth, which was almost certainly that Lyndon B. Johnson sponsored and organized the murder of John F. Kennedy…. Everything I know from my family in Dallas and elsewhere in Texas, my life in New Orleans, and my life experiences elsewhere tell me that this is true: Kennedy refused to implement the New World Order, he was unwilling to do so, and for that sin he died in Dallas.  Here is an excerpt from his 1970 book he wrote that is almost now forgotten (A Heritage of Stone):

By Jim Garrison

In a country with advanced technology for news distribution, the removal of a nation’s leader by a coup d’etat will never be attempted unless those sponsoring the murder feel assured that they will have an effective degree of control over the dissemination of the news. Government control must be at a high enough level to guarantee the subsequent distribution of official news releases encouraging the belief that, however tragic the incident, it was essentially meaningless and all is well.

The high speed of news dissemination is used to great advantage in contemporary intelligence assassinations. The official fiction can be spread to every corner of the world and obtain acceptance as reality long before any separate inquiry, if one ever occurs, has begun. The sheerest illusion is spun into the only reality the public will ever know.

Creation of a believable cover for an assassination is routine for an intelligence agency of a major government. The cover story which is initially distributed by the press release creates a degree of acceptance virtually impossible to dislodge. This is the case especially when the official fiction is supported by the prearranged activities of a decoy pointing in the direction of a false sponsor of the assassination.

The actual events of the assassination become irrelevant. All that remains relevant is the cover story issued to the press and the power to control the investigation and conceal the evidence.

A new political instrument has been created. It provides for the permanent removal of a man whose philosophies do not coincide with that of the dominant power structure of the United States. The danger that the press will recognize what is happening and will make relevant criticism has been demonstrated to be zero. The thinnest of covers will set the press off in the direction opposite to the truth, like greyhounds pursuing the artificial rabbit. The victim can be dispatched with a shotgun and an official announcement that it was done with a bow and arrow will produce editorials condemning the use of bows and arrows.

No one wants to recognize that somewhere along the line America has ceased to be the home of the brave and the land of the free, and that only in after-dinner speeches is it still the sweet land of liberty. No one wants to recognize that there are assassins at work in the land, symmetrically eliminating men who speak out for the human race and for the future. No one wants to admit that in America peace is dangerous business. Better to have the assassinations accompanied by wafer-thin deception, eagerly accepted one after the other, than to have to face the truth.

Justice is not so blind that it pursues the most powerful forces in the country. Nor is the press so committed to truth that it wants the burden of knowledge of what is happening.

America has become a nation controlled by men who seek ever-increasing power. Justice is whatever they want to happen. Truth is whatever they announce has occurred.

A Harvard Anthropologist’s Thoughts about Race in America between Barack Obama, George Zimmerman, Bob Hurt, and Jared Taylor—I

I was an “Honors Program” Freshman undergraduate at the College of Arts & Sciences at Tulane University in New Orleans in 1975-76.  That meant that in my second semester of Freshman year, I got to take one senior and two graduate level classes.  The two graduate level classes were “Crisis in Culture as Reflected in Modern Literature”, taught by the Mellon Professor of the Humanities, Cleanth Brooks, (1906-1994).  The other course was “Ethnic Relations, Conquest, and Colonialism” by Dr. Victoria Reifler Bricker (1940-   ), then a young associate professor of Anthropology with a Harvard Ph.D. who wore rather (even for the mid 1970s) scandalous mini-skirts every day to class (a detail no straight male college Freshman could ignore or forget).  

Bricker and Brooks were in some ways as different as people could be.  But in other ways they complemented each other: they both articulated and affirmed the important relationship between race and culture in history. Cleanth Brooks was one of the great Southern Literary Critics of all times (a founder of “New Criticism”, author of “the Well-Wrought Urn”, and an ally of the Southern Agrarians, John Crowe Ransom, Andrew Lytle, and Donald Davidson, Vanderbilt “Fugitives” Allan Tate, Robert Penn Warren, and their later associates Walker Percy).  Bricker was, I believe, actually born in China or to Chinese missionaries of some sort.

I just about have to disown my friendship with Bob Hurt.   Even before today I had written to him, in King Harry’s words to Jack Falstaff, “I know thee not old man, fall to thy prayers; How ill white hairs become a fool and jester!”  

Twice in the past day, Bob has published two articles on “Lawmen”, Numbers 5472 and 5476, 10-11 August 2013, ” with the phrase “Negro Thuggery in the title.  I disown this sort of writing.  It is not only not mine, it is nothing I want to be associated with.  Bob Hurt has been a friend, faithful and true to me (sometimes) but I cannot tolerate his hypocritical, ignorant, mish-mash of quasi-Neo-Nazi racist and pro-Constitutionalist ravings.  Bob wrote recently that the post-War of Secession “Reconstructed” period of 1865-1914 was the best period of American history.  Really Bob?  You’re a southerner and you think this?  REALLY?  You believe that the era of the Robber Barons when our grand-daddies could press down upon labor a crown of thorns and crucify mankind upon a cross of gold were the BEST years in American History?  The old man in Clearwater has clearly lost at least a few of his marbles…..

Writing about “Negro Thuggery” amounts to throwing out fighting words in Obama’s America and are about as likely as Al Sharpton’s speeches or Charles Manson’s rantings from prison to produce any positive effect.  Neither Jared Taylor nor anyone writing for American Renaissance write or speak this way, even as they aspire to awaken a sense of “racial realism” in America—whether they have achieved anything or not being a totally separate issue.

First off, such phrases as “Negro Thuggery” amount to rude, crude, and uncivilized writing.  I do not endorse censorship or doctrines of “political correctness” by any stretch of the imagination, but I do not think that using these kinds of labels in public makes it any easier to engage in rational dialogue about either race or crime in America in August 2013.  And I do agree we need rational dialogue about crime and race in America.  But, whether Bob Hurt or I like it or not, we have a half-white (“Mulatto”) President whose father was an anti-White, anti-British, pro-Communist terrorist in Kenya, either a member or an ally of the feared and despised “Mau Mau”, and whose mother was, like me, an anthropologist, but unlike me was also a weak-minded communist who used her relationships with men, apparently, to promote her revolutionary anti-white agenda (at least if the movie “Obama 2016″ is to be believed).

Obama’s 50% mix of white and “Negro Blood” is probably about the same as Trayvon Martin, a fact on which the President, to his own MASSIVE discredit, has been trying to capitalize on politically.  The President has a more debased and corrupted sense of justice and constitutional authority that I would ever have dreamt possible in any holder of high office in this country.

Second, Bob Hurt is just being a terrible hypocrite here.   I have known Bob personally and he has black friends and black relatives (in-laws mostly, I believe) who would probably be deeply offended by his use of such epithets.   Bob Hurt is utterly unqualified to be a racist on personal grounds, and he lacks the academic background in either law or anthropology or biology to realize how wrong he is about eugenics and his advocacy of forced sterilization and controlled reproduction as solutions for any of the problems he describes.  Jared Taylor and some of the writers at American Renaissance seem to be tiptoeing on the edge of endorsing eugenics or forced sterilization.  I would never endorse or tolerate any such governmental interference with individual human life or liberty.  I could not possibly do so—I have seen too much of the stupidity of government, and too much injustice and error in the courts.  

As I have learned, observed, and seen first hand from personal experience, ordinary civil and criminal process in the courts simply result in MUCH too much inequity, injustice, and downright horrible outcomes to permit the Courts to go any farther than they already do interfering in people’s lives.  We need to cut WAY back on government, perhaps abolishing the current government all together and starting over.  But we should never think of empowering it be allowing anyone in government to try to play God and supervise or guide the course of human biological evolution.  They have made enough of a hash out of their social engineering attempts, most if not all of which I totally oppose and despise.

I have previously criticized and tried to distance myself from Bob Hurt’s bigoted and downright reprehensible advocacy of 1920s-30s style forced sterilization as a solution to what he calls the “Negro Crime Wave”—I have sat outside jails with Bob in Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties waiting for one of his dark-skinned nieces to be released from custody for her criminal cavortings with people of even darker skin.  Should not this close proximity to the people he condemns make Bob more sympathetic rather than critical and sanctimonious?

There are many causes of high crime rates among African-Americans—but the basic cause was the abolition of chattel (property-based) slavery and its replacement with the 13th Amendment which only permitted slavery “as a punishment for a crime.”  Americans have to own up to themselves as a nation of Bob Hurts who want slavery badly—they just want to pretend that it is just.  The high (one could say “mass” incarceration rates of black males results directly and consequentially from the successive abolition of slavery and segregation.  

I do not accept or believe for a moment that black people are more criminally inclined than whites.   In not so ancient U.S. and U.K. history, it used to be accepted and common knowledge that the Irish, Italians, and Jews were chronically criminal and deviant, but nobody seems to remember or believe that anymore, and even people like Bob Hurt (including Bob Hurt himself) acknowledge that Jews have superior “group average” scores on IQ tests than non-Jewish whites, for whatever that is worth, at the same time as he says that blacks should be sterilized on account of their low IQs and criminal tendencies.

There are direct correlations between IQ and socio-economic status, within ethnically homogeneous groups (such as the Nazi High Command, as tested at their trials at Nuremberg, for example, running from 143 (the financial and banking genius Hjalmar Schacht), and 142 (the equally brilliant Austrian lawyer and jurist Arthur Seyss-Inquart) to poor old Julius Streicher at 106—the most like Bob Hurt of the lot, a vulgar anti-Semite who run a couple of news rags for the NSDAP and never knew when to shut up.

To the degree that there are inter-ethnic group differences in IQ, I still believe that this is cultural, because after many years of considering the question I consider it inconceivable that there is such a thing as “untutored innate human intelligence”, i.e. any intelligence which is NOT created by parents primarily and/or educators in their children.  I have recently discussed this question at length with a New Orleans psychologist (Dr. Robin Chapman), and the reason that IQ tests correlate well with success in school is that IQ scores test school-taught subjects.  Manual dexterity, the earliest use of the human brain which distinguishes us from animals by our envisioning and creation of tools as “extrasomatic adaptations to the environment”, is certainly not a matter of IQ, for example.  So the key survival techniques to exist in the “uncivilized” human societies of palaeotechnic prehistory (i.e. Stone Age chipping stone tools, making good fires, fletching straight and sharp arrows, and later forging and using swords and spears of iron and fitting out good Phoenician or Roman ships and Viking longboats, for example) are completely outside the realm of Intelligence Quotient testing.  

African cultures up through and until the 19th century dawn of Colonialism had achieved just as high levels of proficiency in iron age technology as had their European Counterparts up to and including the early phases of pre-Roman society in Italy or “mainland” Germanic or Viking society (although the native Africans did engage in some fairly extensive coastal and riverine trade by boat in precolonial times, especially in East Africa on the Indian Ocean side, influenced by Arab sea-farers).   

Literate Civilization never independently evolved in Sub-Saharan Africa, and in pre-Colonial times never even extended further south than Ethiopia by diffusion. This lone fact, probably more than any other single historical reason, explains why blacks do not score so well on IQ tests—literate schooling in the Western tradition neither formed part of their cultural nor evolutionary heritage—but that doesn’t make them criminals or stupid, it makes them DIFFERENT.

And it is the study of the function and meaning of human differences which concern us today in America.

I have a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Harvard University, and the title-subject of my doctoral dissertation was “Ethnicity and Social Organization”. I was and remain interested in the question of the reality of ethnic differences and the dynamics of interaction between groups.  “Ethnicity”, across the world, operates largely a mythological construct and ethnic conflict operates as a metaphoric system whose sole purpose, in a virtually monolithically homogeneous society, to maintain social hierarchy.   “Ethnicity” in Europe denominates cultural differences based on  linguistic-nationality, as between French and German, German and Czech or Polish, English and Irish, Italian, Spanish, Yugoslav and Greek.   Looking at the maps of Europe, the Near East, and Latin America today, I think this operational, functional approach to ethnicity as mythology still works.  In short, “ethnicity” and “class” match each other more closely than “ethnicity” and “population biology” in terms of human genetics.

In the United States, we have something called “Race” which both sounds simultaneously deeper in terms of genetics than “ethnicity” and harder to miss on the surface, because “race” implies skin colour.   World culture has evolved into a fundamentally global phenomenon.  Based on what people wear and use, in terms of material culture (a subject on which I focused in my doctoral dissertation, which focused on artistic and historical portrayals of different groups—whether ethnic or not), it is hard to distinguish the “races” of North America.

In North America, our 21st century usage of the term “race” implies fairly strong dividing lines between (1) how people identify themselves, (2) how other people identify them, (3) patterns of behavior, (4) social and cultural values, (5) residence.

In the aftermath of Time Magazine’s cover Story “After Trayvon” (nearly a special issue devoted to the subject of George Zimmerman’s Acquittal, dated July 29, 2013) showing his ghostly “hoodie”, I think it is critical to address the subject of race, which is everywhere in the news and commentary on America.  

Most of what I see is unadulterated hogwash from ALL sides of the debate.  I will start off with the very simple stuff which will permit you to classify me as your ally or enemy, depending on how you feel.  In addition to my Ph.D. from Harvard, which I do not use professionally except to think, I have a J.D. from the University of Chicago, which I also do not use professionally except to think.  

My legal, academic, and personal background lead me to the inescapable conclusion that George Zimmerman’s acquittal was completely proper, George Zimmerman acted in self-defense, and Trayvon Martin was a punk kid, neither the best nor the worst of his kind, who may not have deserved to die for anything he did but really has no complaint (under the circumstances) about being shot when he pinned down a guy on a sidewalk with something less than humanitarian intent or expressions of Christ-like sympathy for his victim….. In my opinion, George Zimmerman also, was neither the best nor the worst of his kind, something slightly better than a punk kid, possibly a failed cop and aspiring neighborhood bully who never quite made it. The battle between Zimmerman and Trayvon was hardly worthy of inclusion in any heroic series about Achilles, Hercules, or Odysseus, but one COULD get confused on that point, reading the news both in print and on-line these days.

But George Zimmerman committed no mortal sin in shooting Trayvon, and the fact that this is all not just news but DIALOGUE on an EPIC PROPORTION in America is symptomatic of a very sick, disturbed society.

Up one minor notch on an increasing scale of complexity, from the discussion of Zimmerman’s acquittal is the question of whether there is too much violence in modern society. The acquittal was exactly as simple as the jury made it: self-defense, justified under the circumstances including but not limited the fact that he was attacked and had no duty to retreat under the laws of the State of Florida—NO HUMAN BEING SHOULD EVER HAVE A DUTY TO RETREAT WHEN ATTACKED, in my opinion).  So now, must we discourage violence?  I think the answer is NO, we must train people how to prepare for and engage in duels to resolve their disputes—observed by, but not carried out by, society as a whole.

As a lifelong student of Anthropology, Biology, Classics, Economics, Geography, and History, I know that violence is an essential aspect of the condition known as “animal life”, generally, but especially “human life” in particular.  As a strictly theoretical matter, but also in practice, I strongly favor personal violence over group violence.   From a biological standpoint, personal (individual-on-individual violence is so much easier to understand and situationally justify).  

Imagine trying, if you will, what it would take to convince a group of Male and Female Lions, for example, that the Death Penalty makes sense: Scar killed Mufassa, so to retake his father’s kingdom, Mufassa’s son Simba kills Scar.  Lions could probably understand that story.  But what if Simba had died in the stampede or the jungle?   Should Rafiki the Baboon Priest somehow have assembled Sarabi (Mufassa’s widow), Nala, and enough other female lions and possibly other “food” animals to arrest, pass judgment on and execute Scar for Mufassa’s murder?   (Priestly and judicial roles are closely related, from an evolutionary standpoint—even today, Priests and Judges are united in wearing anachronistic black robes in public for ritual purposes).

I will come back to the “Lion King” plot-line later, but from the standpoint of non-human animals who NEVER operated that way, the human “justice” system looks pretty ridiculous and frankly, unnatural and counterproductive.  After substantial experience in the law from the perspectives of both judicial chambers and litigants, I question how much sense it makes for humans to operate that way: personal knowledge and experience are a much more reliable index of who deserves to live or die.  No less an authority than my grandmother taught me this, although she phrased it in terms of kinship, “If close relatives don’t know who deserves to live or die, nobody else does either.”

Personal justice is better than, morally superior by far to collective social justice in my opinion, and accordingly, personal violence should be encouraged.  This is true because, if lawful, the credible threat of immediate retribution will actually make for a more peaceful, cooperative society.  That was why murder led to feuds among the Vikings and Scots and their descendants in the Blue Ridge Mountains and Appalachia generally: death by intentional violence was so rare that everybody knew who was responsible and why it happened when it did.

But does Trayvon’s Ectoplasmic Hoodie Really Rate a Full Cover Treatment on Time Magazine?  Does Trayvon Martin really belong among the  ἀθανάτοι θεοὶ?  (the “deathless Gods” as described in Homeric idiom)?   At least seven contributors to the July 29, 2013 issue seem to think so.  I do not intend to join them.  

As a matter of fact, I think that what our so-called President and his propagandists (and I suppose I have to include Time Magazine in this list) have done to try to promote race conflict and racial tension.  It makes me ill.
