Government, anywhere, is only good at one thing (killing people) and building dams ain't one of them.

This is intriguing as all heck.

Send me a PM with the district and any other details you have and I'll get the word out through my grass roots contacts.

I have the ability to reach a lot of people in CA, as our network has grown exponentially. Plug in.....more than happy to show you how and make intros.

Nice work pede.

It's pro-war and pro-MIC, which I would hope is not something worth conserving.

Cruz is stuck in the DC information bubble, but I can't excuse this. How does a guy that smart not know what Ukraine really is? No excuses on this one.

That's actually a great freakin idea. He'd be a fantastic SCOTUS, at least until we overturn Marbury v Madison.

Everywhere is a RINO breeding ground, but TX should do better. There are only a few times when I'm ashamed of the state I was born in, but this is one of them.

Sent this article to my Leftist Sis so I can continually pound home the point that every one of her sources that told her Trump colluded with Russia was wrong and everything I said at the time was right.

She's got to see the light sooner or later. Either that, or she'll break.

I don't agree with your final point, but I understand your logic.

What I'm saying is that other debt based currencies issued by private central banks exist without the IRS.

You are overstating your case. It is a factor, but not the determining one.

I disagree with the premise that TJ was responsible for the war of 1812 for the reasons you stated.

The main cause for the War of 1812 was the failure to renew the charter for the 1st Bank of the US. Jefferson had a lot to do with that, but I praise him for it, while you are damning him for the Louisiana Purchase for the wrong reasons. The reason to damn Jefferson for the Louisiana Purchase is that he gamed the Constitution to allow the Federal Government to purchase land, which it should not have been allowed to do, and the results have been profound.

Going back to the cause of the War of 1812, in 1811 the US failed to renew the 20 year charter of the 1st Bank of the US.

Rothchild famously said:

Either application for the renewal of the charter is granted, or the United Sates will find itself involved in a most disastrous war"

The war broke out months later.

The war lasted several years, with no territory being lost or gained by either side.

What did happen was that the US had to take on so much debt to fight the war, that the same Congress that failed to renew the charter, created the 2nd Bank of the US in 1815.

All Wars Are Banker Wars

(PS, if you want to really dig deeper, the 2nd most important reason for the War of 1812 could have been the Missing 13th Amendment, but I don't have time to get into that tonight).

Sure, the government requires payments in the currency it has outsourced its oversight over, but that still does not mean you can't use other currencies for everyday transactions.

Your point that the IRS is the enforcer that keeps the dollar's pre-eminent role disregards the market's role. This position surprises me, coming from you.

Not only is it wrong (unusual for you), but you usually grasp how markets work better than most. A currency's acceptance will always be determined by market forces far more than any other factor.

Just ask Zimbabwe, Venezuela, etc.....

We could use other currencies right now, and many do. What makes a currency useable is its acceptance by people and merchants to use it as a means of exchange.

The dollar had many of the same issues it has today prior to the existence of the IRS.

Good analogy, and it supports my point that there was SOMETHING upstairs to begin with. It may not have been a quantum computer, but it could process a few ones and zeros.

At this point, they only tax us for punitive purposes. They can (and do) just print all the money they actually spend.

More specifically, this First Amendment protection is the right of an author to have their work published by others. However, it is not a guarantee of total non-interference from outside entities because as freedom has been defined, there are some good sense restrictions.

The word “the” is also important in understanding the meaning of freedom of the press. As journalist A. J. Why summarized the freedom, Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one.”

In other words, in the minds of the writers of the First Amendment, “the press” refers to publishers of newspapers and periodicals. As such, freedom of the press provides publishers complete control over the ideas and opinions or any information they wish to publish. This freedom also includes the right to refuse to publish something and be free from any coercion."

We are the new media!. Keep on keeping on pedes.

Frankly, I'm a bit disappointed you used the original question mark considering how self-evident it was. We'll just assume you were being sarcastic.

The issue involves the Hussman School of Journalism and Media"

Hussman you say?

I've got questions.

Totally understand where you're coming from. I'm looking VERY hard to see signs of change, but I'm seeing them at the local level and the national level.

Best recent example I can give you is Scary Poppins and the Ministry of Truth being cancelled within 3 weeks of inception. The backlash scared them into retreat.

Same thing happened with HR-1 and several other overreaches.

Yeah, I get that they still find ways to gain incrementally, but we're pushing back in a lot of places and people ARE waking up. We've got the momentum, at the very least.

There will be no repeat, because if they try, they're going to be faced to admit they are not the majority and that would destroy their narrative.

They will try, though. This time, we won't take it.

I say this with confidence as I just got back from a meeting discussing exactly this. Bradlee Dean spoke and he was inspirational.

I think we're close to reaching critical mass. Hold your fire soldier, help is on the way.

If you've watched the trial, it's rather apparent that he's exposing the fact that the FBI had NOTHING yet still continued to investigate.

I have no idea if Durham will be allowed to prosecute government officials, but he's sure as hell getting undeniable proof of their crimes entered into the record.
