Stormtroopers Kidnap Demonstrators

https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/18/us/portland-arrests-federal-authorities/index.html?fbclid=IwAR2lnmE8WQQXu9Be0eX9QjTp7FtD3oOpNdRQiVRpWyaB-Wa9cU14QuvC_Xg   , https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/18/portland-oregon-federal-officers-trump-department-homeland-security >  It has been awhile since I have broken my hiatus to post on the course of events here in the U.S.A. , under the Trump administration .  Things have undoubtedly taken a turn for the worse since then .  The heavy heel of the shadow government has been running roughshod over the rights and wellbeing of we the people .  But even before the rise of Trump's totalitarian tyranny , there has been secret detention of foreign subjects .  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_site  Plus , even under the administration of the Democrat , Barack Obama , U.S. citizens had been apprehended , and charged with what essentially amounts to a thought crime , and guilt by association .   ( referenced in the video above )  So like the proverbial frog in the pot of boiling water , Americans , Democrats as well as Republicans , have complacently sat idly by , while our rights have steadily become eroded . Republicans fear Democrats , and Democrats fear Republicans , as being the greatest evil .  But the real enemy isn't any one party , but rather the ironfisted repression , inherent in the system of the political establishment .  I feel though that until such time as as a stateless society can be achieved , with personal liberty , and social equality prevailing , we as citizens must act to vote out such abusers of political power .  I will not presume to tell you all whom to vote for . I feel that any so called anarcho-capitalists / voluntaryists among my audience can be expected to vote for the Libertarian presidential candidate , Jo Jorgenson , and any Communalists would feel best served in voting for the Green , Howie Hawkins .  However , unfortunately , we do not live in a representative democracy , where the popular vote determines the outcome of presidential elections .  So those , such as myself , who have the misfortune of living in a swing state , might feel compelled to vote for the Democrat , Joe Biden , in order to at least try to safeguard whatever is left of the constitutional republic from any further erosion by the dictatorship of Donald Trump .  I don't judge anyone's choice , one way or the other . Just as long as you vote in accordance with your  conscience . This is what I did , in the last election , when I voted for the Green candidate , Jill Stein.  And in spite of all that has since transpired , I still have no regrets .  But come what may , we mustn't unequivocally trust and support any public officials , whether on the left or on the right .  We must stay ever vigilant in challenging the actions of those in government .  I will admit that I fear that if I give my vote yet again to the Green , it could be letting the perfect become the enemy of the good ; however what we really deserve as a nation is more than a restoration of the status quo , but rather liberation from the prevailing powers that be .  So even more so , all of my anti-establishment radicals , who live in safe states , get out and vote for the candidate of the minor party of your choice , especially for the sake of all of us whom may feel coerced by current circumstance to cave in and give our votes to the other major party challenger to Trump's misrule , the Democrat , Joe Biden , no matter how doubtful , and dissatisfied we swing state voters might feel towards him .  Oh , and to those anarchist purists , who feel that voting for anyone , even Greens , and /or Libertarians , is somehow selling out , just let me assert that in my opinion not all regimes are alike .  A democracy , in my view , is definitely preferable to a dictatorship .  And I am not alone in my attitude either . For just some examples .   { https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Issues_in_anarchism#Participation_in_statist_democracy  ,  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communalism#Participation_in_currently_existing_political_systems  ,  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Gossow#Personal_life_and_beliefs  } I believe that we mustn't overlook abuses of power , but rather stand up and resist , by any and all means , necessary and proper .  And voting is one way to do so , in a peaceful manner .  So I choose to exercise my right to vote , as I deem most appropriate , so that hopefully I won't come to feel that I have cause to exercise the right of revolution . But just in case all else fails , here is a primer on how to nonviolently effect a democratic revolution , called " From Dictatorship to Democracy "  .   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ko19yrrE7o  I won't post guidance on the use of revolutionary violence , as not only do I find it to be personally distasteful , but also due to the fact that in all likelihood I am already under surveillance .  Plus , the nonaggression principle , which I hold to , states that we are not to ever initiate force , even in order to enact social change , but only in self defense .

Mosque Shooting Was Carried Out By White Supremacists In New Zealand .


The Guardian Article   When it comes to places of worship , the media usually focuses on church shootings , but this was a mosque shooting . I also found it to be of remarkable interest that the New Zealand government , under Prime Minister Jacinda Arden , has deemed this to be a terrorist attack . Not only because it was carried out by only one or two gunmen , with no known organizational ties , but also because when for example church shooter Dylan Roof carried out his attack , the authorities did not charge him with committing a terrorist act . Seemingly New Zealand has a larger , and some might assert fairer , definition of terrorism , compared to the U.S.A. Obviously , at any rate , this incident was a cowardly atrocity , which even if the particular mosque were preaching extremist doctrine , it still would not be justified, given its unlawful killing of non-combatants . And also , even though I do believe that religious supremacism should be confronted , I likewise feel that to carry out such violent propaganda of the deed against churches which espouse such dominion theology would be unwarranted . New Zealand , and especially all those impacted by this deadly hate crime , have my condolences .

New York State Senator Proposes Searching Social Media History As Prerequisite For Gun License


https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2018/12/04/gun-license-sen-kevin-parker-says-social-media-check-required/2200158002/    In an unconscionable , and I believe unconstitutional , disregard for civil liberty , and personal privacy , State Senator Kevin Parker  has introduced a bill to make mandatory that applicants for gun licenses turn over passwords for such social network platform accounts as Facebook , and Twitter , so that their posting history over the past three years can be gone over for possible indications of such things as racism , for example . Now usually on my blog I tend to call out the Republican right . But this time it's a Democrat who has shown himself to be the would be infringer of individual civil rights . This piece of proposed legislation would gather personal information , without a warrant , in an investigation of what would essentially be a thought crime . And would anti-white gun owners also be potentially penalized under this suggested law , or can only white people be considered to be racist ?  Also , as an aside , I just today learned that the before mentioned sponsor of this introduced bill has himself a history of inflammatory commentary on Twitter . https://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/ny-pol-parker-giove-rants-20181218-story.html    So I feel that those in glass houses should not be so quick to throw stones .

Venezuela , And The People's Republic of China , Implement Social Control Tech

https://www.businessinsider.com/venezuela-id-card-tracks-citizens-like-china-2018-11?utm_content=bufferb0f95&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer-ti&fbclid=IwAR0Pv5Y6hCcYrnbL_P2JnhtmRm8BJtVF6oOC3j_t3QumiGPssDKietCyo2QWhat I have been concerned might happen , with with regard to possible abuses of such technology , has finally come to fruition , in Venezuela , and also China . Under such a policy , which I imagine could be potentially implemented in any nation , no matter the political , or economic system , left-wing , right-wing , socialist , or capitalist , all persons will be reduced to the status of pets of of the the state . For it's along the same sort sort of lines of RFID microchips , such as my dad had the vet implant my Jack Russell terrier with https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/talkingtech/2017/07/25/do-microchip-implants-pose-health-risks-ask-swedes-and-pets/507408001/. Kind of gives new meaning to the term , " mark of the beast " , which some Christians suspect this of constituting https://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/703856/MARK-OF-THE-BEAST-Secret-plan-to-implant-us-all-with-ID-chips-by-2017  , https://www.cbsnews.com/news/microchip-implant-controversy-a-mark-of-the-beast-or-the-coming-singularity/ , while others do not  http://www.end-times-prophecy.org/mark-of-beast-rfid-technology.html  .

On "From Dictatorship to Democracy"

I just recently discovered a free public domain audio book on YouTube of this book by Gene Sharp on how to go about carrying out a non-violent democratic revolution . So I just thought that I would post a link here , for whom ever might be interested https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ko19yrrE7o&t=4630s  .  I am starting to tend to believe that non-violent resistance is preferable , and even more effective than armed struggle . As the late John Lennon put it  “When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – pull your beard, flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.”  -  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F8o2ajR5x8s  So while I still recognize , and respect the natural right of self defense , and the right of revolution , I also feel that it's best to use as little force as possible in the process . This article best sums up my general attitude towards the use of violence http://www.commonsenseethics.com/blog/what-everyone-ought-to-know-about-violence-and-self-defense  .

DHS Creates Media Database

I just recently saw this program on RT https://www.rt.com/shows/americas-lawyer/424548-dhs-texas-media-affair/ . One of the things discussed was how the Department of Homeland Security has been monitoring various forms of news media , including blogs . So I wasn't off base in feeling concerned over the possibility of state repression .

U.S. Government Over Reaches In Clamping Down On Protesters

This program I recently watched mainly pertains to the J20 protesters at Trump's inauguration .  I wanted to post it here , both to inform anyone whom may continue to follow my blog of the continuing state of affairs here in the U.S.A. under the tyranny of the Trump administration , as well as to show that I am still alive and active , and haven't yet been arrested by the police powers that be .  I will still plan on periodically updating my blog if I find any information that I deem to be fundamentally of vital importance . However , as I posted recently before , I feel that now more than ever I must be prudently cautious in my political opposition as a dissident . And so I expect that my posting to this blog of mine will prove to be more so sporadic than in past decades . But I still do feel that now more than ever all Americans whom love both freedom and fairness must stay vigilant and keep informed . Therefore I shall be maintaining this blog as both a source of continued information , and a source of prior inspiration , from both the years of the presidencies  of George W. Bush , and Barack Obama . As you all will notice from reading my blog from the beginning , my specific perspectives on certain issues and individuals have evolved through the years , yet my commitment to personal liberty , and social justice has remained the same .
