3 boggling facts in Hillary email cover-up/Dallas shooting

by Jon Rappoport

July 8, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

—Arch-Globalist Hillary Clinton’s no-prosecution, the recent exit of Britain from the EU which torpedoed the unchecked advance of Globalism, the current Presidential campaign which features a candidate (formerly two candidates) attacking Globalism as no major candidate ever has before—all this suddenly fades from public consciousness in the specter of the Dallas shootings—the racial conflict that has been decades in the making—made in America, by Globalists, for the express purpose of Divide and Conquer—

I know full well how incompetent, stupid, amateurish, and ill-prepared government employees can be. But the dog and pony Hillary show of the last few days is truly staggering.

If the effort was to exonerate Hillary Clinton, it was done so badly the American people are more certain than ever…

Reforming the USPS
Cato Institute
Rayburn House office building B-369
Noon

The U.S. Postal Service has lost more than $50 billion since 2007 as mail volume has plummeted. House and Senate committees are working on legislation to stem the losses, and a stamp price hike is in the mix. Meanwhile, many European nations have reinvigorated their postal systems by privatizing them and opening them to competition.

What challenges does the USPS face, and what changes are being considered by Congress? Should the USPS be moved to the private sector, and should entrepreneurs be allowed to compete?

Join our distinguished panel of experts—James Gattuso, Senior Research Fellow, Heritage Foundation; Kevin Kosar, Senior Fellow, R Street Institute; and Chris Edwards, Editor, DownsizingGovernment.org, Cato Institute; and Peter Russo, Director of Congressional Affairs, Cato Institute—to hear about the postal deficit crisis and ideas for major reforms.

Libertarian Party ballot access suit
11 am
 US District Court, EDNY
225 Cadman Plaza
Room 6B South

Judge Sterling Johnson, Jr. will hear our motion on July 11, and if the PI is granted then, we can start using modified petition sheets with a witness statement for non-duly qualified New York voters.

It would be helpful to the case if the gallery of the courtroom was packed with Merced and LPNY supporters at that hearing.  Monday, July 11, 2016, at 11:00 am, United States Court House for the Eastern District of New York, 225 Cadman Plaza East, Brooklyn, in Courtroom 6B South before District Judge Sterling Johnson, Jr.  See you there, spread the word!

Our lawsuit has been filed, to strike down New York Election Law 6-140(1)(b), which requires our nominating petition witnesses to be “duly qualified voters of the state” of New York, on the ground that it violates the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.  Our federal court complaint, filed today in the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Brooklyn, is attached.

The hearing on our motion for a preliminary injunction, to enjoin the NYSBOE from enforcing that provision while the suit is pending, will likely be heard on July 1, so until then at least, we must comply with the current New York law.  I will meet with the judge tomorrow(Tuesday) morning to fix the dates for our motion.  Also attached is my Memo of Law in support of the PI.

 Book now! After we fly into St. Petersburg, we’ll check in to the 19th-century five-star Belmond Grand Hotel Europe. We’ll then spend five days touring the renowned sights of this historic city and its surroundings, from the Hermitage and the Nevsky Prospekt to the Grand Palace and gardens of Peterhof, followed by private meetings with distinguished historians, cultural leaders, and curators. Next, we’ll board a canal boat to explore the city’s 42 islands.
After taking a high-speed train to Moscow, we’ll travel to the city of Sergiyev Posad and the Trinity Lava of St. Sergius, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This destination brings medieval Russia to life with its stimulating mixture of the country’s most celebrated architecture, iconic paintings, and unique cultural activities.
In Moscow, we’ll stay at the InterContinental Tverskaya Hotel, a modern, five-star hotel within walking distance of Red Square. We’ll take a private escorted tour of the Kremlin, and meet with Pavel Palazhchenko (Mikhail Gorbachev’s longtime interpreter and colleague) and Sergei Kapkov, Moscow’s former culture minister, as well as other media and cultural figures. We’ll also visit the Pushkin Museum, Gorky Park, and the famed Novodevichy Cemetary.

Brexit Victory, new reason editor Katherine Mangu-Ward, and a communication problem for libertarians

28 Jun
Some libertarians, like Katherine Mangu-Ward, the new editor in chief at reason (speaking last week on the Kennedy show) favored “remaining” in the EU, as a form of maximizing free trade.

In a way it’s a curious position for Ms. Mangu-Ward, a non-electoral libertarian who believes “voting only encourages them,” yet thinks international governmental organizations and agreements are a good path to free trade.  It may be a minority position too – not only conservatives but libertarians like Ron Paul as well as those in England and elsewhere favor Brexit.

It also highlights a problem area for libertarians, who often appear on C-Span, in the form of lawyers and scholars affiliated with CATO etc, arguing for free trade to an audience, if judged by the callers, who don’t get the economic arguments about gains of trade and then view the libertarians as a subspecies of the pointy headed technocratic elite that populates the government and wants to tell them how to live their lives.


In on line discussions among members of the British Libertarian Alliance, opinion was something like this:

“…The death of the UK to be replaced by being a sub-state of the EU is a libertarian nightmare. By rejecting the EU we have taken a major step in the direction of libertarianism.

This was not the intention of most Leave campaigners but it means that the UK is now more… vulnerable, one might say, to libertarian campaigning. The EU is no longer there to impose its own laws from outside. Now all that we, as libertarians, have to contend with is the infrastructure and bureaucracy of British government. This is by no means an easy job but it’s a lot easier than having to cope with the EU too!

Our job of bringing about libertarian change has just because a little bit easier.

All of a sudden, there is a lot less state for us to deal with.”


I fear libertarians have a communication problem they don’t know how to deal with here.  I saw one clicktivist in a group of gay Trump supporters recently damn all libertarians for looking down on people and thinking they are smarter than everyone else.  One of Gary Johnson’s main media people, as well as a Republican delegate to the GOP nominating convention who wants to campaign for Johnson, have both expressed to me their exasperation with me when I ask if Libertarian candidates should not find a way to appeal to the concerns of Trump voters.

I’m picking on Ms. Mangu-Ward a little, as she dislikes me.  She’s also a smart woman and might have some ideas about this communications problem.




Brexit Wins: Why That’s Great News for Europe, Too

British voters have elected to leave the European Union in a national referendum. The UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage declared Friday Britain’s “independence day.” That is quite a statement given British history. A little over two and a quarter centuries ago, America had its own first Independence Day, and the British Empire was the super-state from which Americans declared independence.
Independence is not isolation.
History has come full circle; in a sense, today we are seeing the American Revolution in reverse. In many ways, the European Union is a lever of US global hegemony. By seceding from the EU in spite of threats from Washington, Britain is declaring partial independence from America.
It must be noted that independence is not isolation. This is the key distinction that is intentionally blurred by the “Better Together” rhetoric of the “Remain” camp. When they scaremonger about “leaving Europe,” it conjures images of Britain abandoning Western civilization. But “the West,” as in the US-led alliance of neo-colonial powers, is not the same thing as Western civilization. And the European Union is not the same thing as Europe. Exiting a mega-state in defiance of an imperium is not withdrawing from civilization. In fact, such an exit is propitious for civilization.
Small Is Beautiful
Political independence fosters economic interdependence.
Advocates of international unions and super-states claim that centralization promotes trade and peace: that customs unions break down trade barriers and international government prevents war. In reality, super-states encourage both protectionism and warfare. The bigger the trade bloc, the more it can cope with the economic isolation that comes with trade warfare. And the bigger the military bloc, the easier it is for bellicose countries to externalize the costs of their belligerence by dragging the rest of the bloc into its fights.
A small political unit cannot afford economic isolationism; it simply doesn’t have the domestic resources necessary. So for all of UKIP’s isolationist rhetoric, the practical result of UK independence from the European economic policy bloc would likely be freer trade and cross-border labor mobility (immigration). Political independence fosters economic interdependence. And economic interdependence increases the opportunity costs of war and the benefits of peace.
The Power of Exit
Super-states also facilitate international policy “harmonization.” What this means is that, within the super-state, the citizen has no escape from onerous laws, like the regulations that unceasingly pour out of the EU bureaucracy. But with political decentralization, subjects can “vote with their feet” for less burdensome regimes. Under this threat of “exit,” governments are incentivized to liberalize in order to compete for taxpayer feet. Today’s referendum was a victory both for Brexit and the power of exit. That’s good news for European liberty.
During its Industrial Revolution, Britain was a beacon of domestic liberty and economic progress that stimulated liberal reform on the European continent. An independent Britain in the 21st century can play that role again. In doing so, Britain would help Europe outside the EU far more than it ever could on the inside. Brexit may be a death knell for the European Union, yet ultimately a saving grace for the European people.
