Staying the Course

If you think we should "finish the job in Iraq" what you are really saying is "I want to see more Americans in wheelchairs and coffins."

9/11-Iraq Link

"Contrary to what Bush has long maintained, the 9/11 terrorists, like their predecessors who attacked the World Trade Center in 1993, were motivated not by hatred for America’s “freedom and values” but instead by anger arising from the bad things that the U.S. government has done to people overseas, especially in the Middle East, including......" Jacob G. Hornberger

A Very Expensive Favor For Iraq

I love Charlie Reese's common sense approach to American politics. This quote is from a recent article.

"I cannot think of any instance in which the federal government has been willing to spend $1 billion a week and 1,700 lives just to improve conditions in any one of the 50 states. Yet that is exactly what it is doing in Iraq, presumably for no other reason than to bring the blessings of liberty to a people we have bombed, starved, impoverished and vilified for 14 years."

In the meantime, the American people should be concerned that their federal government worries more about the Iraqis than it does the Americans. We could find far better uses for both the money and the lives than to squander them on the hard, bloody soil of the Middle East."

Good stuff.

Mike (in Tokyo) Rogers

I really like this guy's columns. Sometimes funny, sometimes serious. This is the best one I've read in long time.

Quote from the article (in case you don't read it):
"There can never be any excuse for starting a war, Mr. Lefty or Mr. Righty. The people cannot possibly be that stupid not to see through your games sooner or later. Perhaps this is one big reason for the explosive rise of Libertarianism: True Libertarians have a policy and they stick to it. And that policy is: Anti-state, anti-war, and pro-market. It's the only policy that consistently holds up under scrutiny and analysis rather than inflection. Whoever first said there's no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans should have patented that phrase – they could have been rich by now."

Bush’s War Against Iraq is Ruining America

You could say that Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, is a little upset with the current administration. I share his sentiment.

Protesters Win a Case Over I.R.S.

Even the NY Times is talking about Joe Banister's acquittal.

Joe's lawyer:
"American citizens have the right to ask the government questions and the government has a duty to answer in good faith........ to proceed against Joe Banister with an indictment rather than simply answering his questions is un-American."

Supreme Greens with MSM

Supreme Greens with MSM

I highly recommend this supplement if you need to take anything at all. You can learn more about it and purchase it here. I'm a big fan of Alex Guerrero's work. He has a lot of NFL players as clients. His book In Balance for Life: Understanding & Maximizing Your Body's pH Factor is really good.

More on the Property Rights Ruling

Some good quotes from local Libertarians:
"The only recourse remaining for property rights is to put Libertarians on your city council" says Lago Vista city councilman and Libertarian Party of Texas state chair Patrick Dixon.

"I can't walk into someone's house, take their TV, and leave them a thousand dollars," said David Fried, a member of the Executive Committee for the Travis County Libertarian Party. "Just because it's the government doing it and you're adding a few zeroes doesn't mean it's not stealing."

"Living in fear that my property can be ripped from my hands at any moment is not a public good."

Supreme Court Justice O'Connor, in her dissenting opinion on Kelo vs. New London:
Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random. The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms. As for the victims, the government now has license to transfer property from those with fewer resources to those with more. The Founders cannot have intended this perverse result.

Cancer Revisited

No study of cancer is complete without reading World Without Cancer: The Story of Vitamin B17 by G. Edward Griffin.

This book was first published in 1974. I heard a radio interview with Griffin here in Austin about a year ago and he still stands by it. To put it simply, B17 is cyanide and when consumed in tiny amounts, it goes and kills cancer cells. How does Mr. Griffin get his daily dose of B17? According to the interview, he grinds up apricot seeds and sprinkles them on his food.

From the back of the book:
Mr. Griffin marshals the evidence that cancer is a deficiency disease - —like scurvy or pellagra - —aggravated by the lack of an essential food compound in modern man'’s diet. That substance is vitamin B17. In its purified form developed for cancer therapy, it is known as Laetrile.

This story is not approved by orthodox medicine. The FDA, the AMA, and The American Cancer Society have labeled it fraud and quackery. Yet the evidence is clear that here, at last, is the final answer to the cancer riddle.

Why has orthodox medicine waged war against this non drug approach? The author contends that the answer is to be found, not in science, but in politics - —and is based upon the hidden economic and power agenda of those who dominate the medical establishment.

"It's a simple concept to explain: The government can take away your land and give it to someone else. Period."

I've never heard of this guy, Bob Lonsberry, but his article is really good. It's slanted pretty far to the right. He almost acts as if Republicans on the bench would have prevented this. I doubt it. A good read nonetheless.

Joseph Banister Acquitted!!!!!!

Finally some good news to report. It appears that the income tax is voluntary. There is no law requiring you to pay or to withhold. This is bigger than the O.J. and M.J. trials put together.

Former IRA CID Special Agent Joseph Banister Acquitted of Tax Fraud And Conspiracy

Government Unable To Prove U.S. Law Requires Income Tax Withholding or Filing
Sacramento California --
On Thursday June 23, a federal jury found former IRS Criminal Investigative Division (CID) Special Agent and CPA Joseph Banister not guilty of all counts alleging criminal tax fraud and conspiracy related to actions he took on behalf of a California business owner who had openly defied the IRS over several years by stopping withholding of all income and employment taxes from the paychecks of his workers.

During the trial the Department of Justice was unable to put forth any evidence that Banister had either engaged in a conspiracy or had acted unlawfully when he shared legal research with business owner Al Thompson concluding that he had no legal obligation to withhold taxes from his workers or when he (Banister) prepared corrected tax returns for Thompson claiming his taxable income was, under U.S. law, zero.

During the trial, Banister's former supervisor at IRS’s San Jose CID office, Robert Gorini (who testified via video recording) when pointedly asked, was unable to cite any U.S. law that required Banister to pay income taxes.

Banister, who was forced to resign in 1999 after questioning IRS officials about their legal authority, gave Thompson’s worker’s a presentation in 2000 which reviewed his detailed investigative research of U.S. tax law which concluded that not only did the IRS lack any authority to impose income taxes on the workers, but there was no legal requirement for the business to withhold any taxes from the worker's paychecks.

Banister is part of a nationwide effort seeking to force the U.S. Government to respond to a series of detailed legal Petitions for Redress of Grievances directly challenging the authority of the IRS. Last summer, the We The People Foundation initiated a landmark lawsuit with 2000 plaintiffs against the government because it has refused to answer the Petitions.

The Right-To-Petition lawsuit, of which Banister is a plaintiff, is the first time in history that U.S. courts have been asked to define the meaning of the final ten words of the First Amendment.

Court documents for the RTP lawsuit and scholarly research regarding the Right to Petition can be downloaded from the Lawsuit Information Center on

Following the verdict, Banister was greeted by a throng of WTP supporters and members of his family.

Tomorrow, WTP will publish additional details of this important news and stream video of post-verdict interviews of Banister & several of the jurors.

The War on...... Afghanistan

Or did you forget about that one? Yes, the great Bush administration brought us TWO wars and that's if you exclude all the domestic wars we fight continuously against ourselves. I don't think spending $1,000,000,000+ per week on wars is enough. Maybe we should start a war on Iran. After all, war is "good for the economy".

Criminalization out of Control

This is just too funny. This quote is from a great article from Cato that you really should read.
"A bill to prevent the transportation of horses for human consumption has 80 co-sponsors in Congress. If signed into law, it would join such illustrious federal crimes as the interstate transport of water hyacinths, trafficking in unlicensed dentures and misappropriating the likeness of Woodsy Owl and his associated slogan, "Give a hoot, don't pollute" (punishable by up to six months in prison)."

Short Video About the Downing St. Memo

UT Professor Robert Jensen discusses this development in a streaming video clip adapted from the documentary “Hijacking Catastrophe,” which was released in 2004 and is even more relevant today. Pentagon whistleblower Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski and longtime dissident Daniel Ellsberg are featured in the clip, discussing the conditions that produced the Downing Street memo.

Hopefully you don't have it, but if you do, you might want to get some IP6.

An 80-year old man with terminal liver cancer took IP6 for a few weeks prior to a scheduled rescue procedure where an anti-tumor drug was to be injected directly into the liver. A cat scan performed just prior to the procedure revealed the liver tumor was completely necrotic – the tumor was a ball of dead cells.

A middle-aged woman whose husband worked for a prominent member of Congress, who had stage 4 breast cancer, experienced a rapid and complete remission following the consumption of IP6.

At age 70, a man was diagnosed with lung cancer. Radiologists had missed a lung tumor the size of a golf ball in an earlier x-ray. A year later it was the size of a softball. Chemotherapy reduced the tumor by 75 percent. In 1999 the man began taking IP6. By 2004 the lung tumor had completely disappeared, which was confirmed by bronchoscopy and x-ray.

A man with recurrent bladder tumors submitted to surgical removal in 1999, 2000 and 2001. He then embarked upon the use of IP6 as a dietary supplement and has not experienced a return of bladder tumors in 38 months.

UFO Info

I haven't been keeping up with this topic lately, but I came across The Disclosure Project recently and found it very interesting. I watched the first hour of the two-hour video that they produced and thought it was 100 times better than the Peter Jennings special from a few months ago. You can watch the video for free here. Be sure to read G. Edward Griffin's analysis firstly.

The Disclosure Project is a nonprofit research project working to fully disclose the facts about UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and classified advanced energy and propulsion systems. We have over 400 government, military, and intelligence community witnesses testifying to their direct, personal, first hand experience with UFOs, ETs, ET technology, and the cover-up that keeps this information secret.

107 years and counting

We're still paying a "temporary" 3% excise tax on telephones to pay for the Spanish-American War. Just one of the millions of examples of governmental lunacy.

To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-ridden, regulated, penned up, indoctrinated, preached at, checked, appraised, seized, censured, commanded, by beings who have neither title, nor knowledge, nor virtue. To be governed is to have every operation, every transaction, every movement noted, registered, counted, rated, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, refused, authorized, endorsed, admonished, prevented, reformed, redressed, corrected.

Texas Girl With Cancer Taken From Parents

I heard an interview on the radio with this girl's father. Apparently, state officials kidnapped her siblings in order to get to her so that they could administer radiation "treatment" whether she wanted or needed it. It's a sad day in Texas when government officials can come in your house, without a warrant, take your kid and administer treatment the government thinks best, without the consent of the parents. You can read a little bit about the story here.

#3 Continue to live fairly modestly as you get older
#4 Avoid debt and borrowing unless necessary
#5 Give yourself a pay raise by kicking costly addictions

Nobody Ever Went Broke Buying Gold

"Sooner rather than later, as people start looking in earnest for financial safe havens, they’ll begin turning away in droves from U.S. Treasuries and overpriced real estate... and turning to gold and silver, assets which are both tangible and portable."

Alex Jones

Last night I went to see Alex Jones' new documentary film, Martial Law 911: Rise of the Police State. For those of you that are unaware, Alex Jones is conspiracy theorist, nationally syndicated talk-radio host, and local Austinite. His website is extremely popular. He's a bit nutty, but I tend to agree with a lot of what he has to say.

Now that almost four years have passed since 9/11, it's time to expose what really happened. There are still many unanswered questions surrounding the "terrorist attack". In his new film, Alex provides compelling evidence that WTC buildings 1,2, and 7 came down because of demolition, not because of fires from the planes that flew into buildings 1 and 2. In other words, there were explosives planted in the buildings that went off and caused the buildings to fall. If you don't believe it, I'll assume you haven't seen the film yet.

Alex Jones isn't the only one talking about the Demolition Theory. Texas A&M professor emeritus, Morgan Reynolds, Ph.D., believes it too and wrote a spectacular article about it today. It's kind of a long article, but well worth the read. Please check it out when you have time. You won't be disappointed.

A few things I learned from the film:
1. Lots of people had prior knowledge of 9/11
2. Larry Silverstein, the property owner of WTC 1,2, and 7, bought two of the buildings just months before 9/11 and took out huge insurance policies on them. So far, those contracts have paid him $3.5 billion.
3. Fire has never before or after 9/11 caused a steel-frame building to collapse and they were built to withstand not one, but two planes flying into them.
4. Firefighters in the WTC buildings said they heard explosives going off and now have a gag-order against them.

Anthony Gregory's latest article provides a good look at the open vs. closed border debate from a Libertarian perspective.

Anyone who thinks that the government can magically "shut down" the borders is living in a fantasy world in my opinion. Remember that this is the same government that can't deliver the mail on time or keep drugs out of Federal prisons. To think that they could close thousands of miles of borders is insane and it wouldn't be worth the cost even if they could. A complete dismantling of the welfare state would go a long way towards curbing illegal immigration. Without the hope of free education and free healthcare, the only people wishing to immigrate would be those who want to work hard and make a better life for themselves, which I see no problem with.

A&M Update

In a huge blow to A&M's defense, two players were kicked off the team: Jorrie Adams - D-line and Erik Mayes - CB. Both were quality young players who probably would have started this season.

In even worse news, an Aggie asked Coach Fran to predict next season's Big 12 South standings. Franchione said he would leave out A&M, but when he said, "If I was picking tonight, I would pick t.u.," he was met with a roomful of hisses.

Antoine Wright could be a top 10 pick in the NBA draft.

Super-Sized Governments

Democrats - the party of BIG GOVERNMENT
Republicans - the party of SUPER-SIZED GOVERNMENT
Libertarians - the ONLY party for smaller government

"The 33 percent growth in the budget during Bush’s first term is about as large as the growth of the budget during Clinton's entire presidency."
"...when you strip away spending on defense, homeland security and entitlement programs and adjust the rest for inflation Bush still ranks as the biggest spending president in 30 years -- only Nixon is a bigger spender."

Remember that big government abroad (war) is incompatible with small government at home. If you think that the government should stay out of your business at home, to be consistent, you also have to believe that they should stay out of other countries affairs too.
