On Immigration Reform

This is a major policy address by Donald Trump on immigration made on 8/31/16

Winning the Global Competition

The Threat: Radical Islam And The Age Of Terror

The links to the left are two speeches recently given by Donald Trump. The first is a speech about his economic policy and philosophy. The second is a foreign policy speech focusing on Islamic Terrorism. Both are serious speeches loaded with footnotes for almost every assertion. Reasonable people may agree or disagree with him about the substance of his remarks, but the point of my posting them is to point out how horribly both speeches were covered by what we here in America should laughably call our "free press".

Rather than focus in any meaningful way on the substance of either of these two speeches, the press digs as hard as they can to find a single sentence or phrase which they can act shocked and bewildered by, so they can shout with rabid indignation about what a horrible fellow Donald Trump is. If it all weren't so deadly serious, it would be funny.

Pine64 Media Center

I built a media center for all of my music out of a Pine64 micro-computer. Details and pictures in the article

Beowulf

A rememberance.

Waco

This is some interesting stuff. I was looking through some old backups, and came across an archive I had of every single article published by the Dallas Morning News about Waco as the event was happening, from 3/6/93 through 10/11/93 The backup this came from was created in 1996, which goes to show that it pays to back up your files, because you may some day want something that was on your computer 19 years ago.

I cleaned up the HTML that the zip file contained and have reposted it as a study in propaganda and media manipulation. For example, I count the word "cult" being used 1241 in the 171 articles contained here. The logical and storyline issues by the feds is left to the reader to discern.

Delegated Powers

This is not what I'd normally post here as an 'article'. It's actually a copy of a concurring opinion written by Justice Thomas. The case it is concerning was "Department Of Transportation, et al., V. Association of American Railroads. Even though it is really a legal opinion, it is really an interesting read regarding how the supreme Court has made decisions regarding powers delegated by congress. It's worth reading, for the historical perspective if nothing else.

Just for completness' sake, I also have the Opinion of the Court and Alito's Concurring Opinion as well.

The Income Tax in 1913

This includes graphics of the income tax forms and rate table as published in 1913, with inflation-adjusted comparisons to today. This might depress you or piss you off.

A speech by Robert Heinlein delivered in 1973 to Midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy. As always, RAH is brilliant.

A speech delivered to the graduating class at West Point in 1974. This is a great read.

Immigration and Usurpation

This is a really interesting perspective on the current debate surrounding the latest illegal immigraion amnesty that the folks in DC are trying to foist upon us. Bottom line: Pols (of both parties) want a more malleable electorate.

Bob Barr on the Patriot Act

This is congressional testimony by former congressman Bob Barr concerning the danger to our liberty of the "PATRIOT"

Aliens Cause Global Warming
and
Environmentalism is a Religion

Dispite its humorous title, Aliens is a serious discussion of the state of modern day science. Similarly, his speech on environmentalism is an excellent read on what is behind modern environmentalism.

A Letter to Microsoft
by Dr. Edgar David Villanueva Nunez

This is a letter sent by a Peruvian legislator to Microsoft in response to a letter Microsoft had sent him attacking a law he'd proposed requiring that the Peruvian government only use Open Source software.

This letter is the best response I've ever seen of why governments should use open source rather than proprietary software. It is a bit on the longish side, but he really lays out the reasoning for it and does an excellent job of combatting Microsoft FUD on the issue. The proposed law in question only concerns software that governmental agencies should use, and does not impact or legislate on what private companies or individuals should use.

New Censors
AP News
This is an interesting article about how police in one city are practicing a new form of censorship.
The Six-Lesson Schoolteacher
by John Taylor Gatto
This is an article about the current state of our educational system. It was written in 1991, but is every bit as apt today in my not so humble opinion.

Are we giving up our freedom for the illusion of safety? I'm afraid that's how it will be.

Check out this poem. I like it, and hope you do too.

Assasination Politics
by Jim Bell

In honor of Jim Bell's sentancing, (see http://cryptome.org/jdb-hit.htm for more information) I'm reposting his essay. It's an interesting thought experiment and is a useful guide showing how far your free speech rights will go before Fedgov will find a reason to lower the boom on you.

by W. Cleon Skousen

The Electoral College For Europeans
by Michael Gilson De Lemos
Wed Nov 15, 2000

I've been re-energized the past week or so from a political point of view. As long as I can maintain this level of energy and interest, you'll probably be seeing a lot more new stuff here for a while.I found a great bit of commentary on the Electoral College and figured I'd pass it along to read. Turn off the television and other distractions before reading this.

Why You Pay So Much For Gasoline
By OPEC

September 29, 2000

There has been quite a bit of talk in the media about the price of oil since the since Clinton decided to heed the Gore's election year ploy in releaseing oil from the national pertoleum reserve. I found this today and figured readers here might be interested in it. The numbers are from OPEC, but a cursory analysis of those given seems to square with reality. There are actually two articles here, the second is called from the first, and there are several links to graphics that will open up in a separate window as they are a bit large. Enjoy!

We Deserve What We Get
by John R. (Bob) Locke

This is an excellent article stolen from Free Republic. It is written by a participant on the website. I highly recommend it.

Areopagitica
by John Milton

Many thanks to Karen (you know who you are!) for pointing this work out. It is an excellent essay on censorship written by John Milton of Paradise Lost fame in 1644. I heartily recommend it to all who are concerned about moves in our present society to implement new forms of censorship. It is a good reference to the fact that there is nothing new under the sun.
This article was brazenly fromRenascence Editions.

The last remaining Liberty Trees was felled this weekend as it had pretty much succumed to the ravages of age. Please read this article and reflect upon the metaphor that it raises.

A Problem With Guns?
by Robert L. Kocher

This article is, without a doubt, the best article I've seen about Victim Disarmament (known in the media as "Gun Control") in a while. It lays out the motivations for this agenda with striking clarity and lucidity. It is highly recommended. It's kind of long though. You might want to print it out and read it at your leisure. An additional side benefit of reading it in this manner is that after you are done, you can hand it to someone not web-enabled and open their eyes.

This article was brazenly stolen from http://www.zolatimes.com. I encourage you to visit this fine site for other fine material.

How To Break The Law by Duncan Frissell Steps to take if you decide, for whatever reason, to break the law or participate in any form of civil disobedience. Pretty detailed, and fairly extreme.

The True Story of the InterNet
By Arnold
(anonymous)
This is a rather weird tale set some distance in the future. Parts of it might be offensive to some, but I include it as it was posted anonymously to the cypherpunks mailing list some time ago and I thought it was strange, but entertaining. I would imagine it is funnier to those who have spent some time subscribed to Cypherpunks.

The Battle of Athens
by JPFO (Jews for the Protection of Firarms Ownership
On 2 August 1946, some Americans, brutalized by their county government, used armed force to over-turn it. These Americans wanted honest, open elections. For years they had asked for state or Federal election monitors to prevent vote fraud -- forged ballots, secret ballot counts, and intimidation by armed sheriff's deputies -- by the local political boss. They got no help.

These Americans' absolute refusal to knuckle-under had been hardened by service in World War II. Having fought to free other countries from murderous regimes, they rejected vicious abuse by their county government.

Electric Utilities and Year 2000 - Impact on Fossil Generation
by Rick Cowles
Suppose that, all Y2K things being equal, an electric company's fossil generation facilities were Y2K prepared and ready to continue generating power after the turn of the century. The distribution grid remained online. The lights stayed on. A week passes, then two. Then, just when you thought you were out of the scary Y2K woods, during the third week of January, 2000, the power goes off. And stays off. How in the heck could this happen? I think you'll understand as you read a little further down the page.

Call to Arms against F[reeh,uck]
by Attila T. Hun attila@hun.org
I initially hesitated to put this on my page, as I don't particularly agree with the writer's opinions as they regard Isreal, the PLO and Hamas. However, he has an important point to make about the fact that Lying Scum Freeh will use the fact that those organizations the U.S. (Feral) Government considers to be "terrorists" can obtain and use high-quality encryption as a screen behind which to hide when he proposes to take away our freedom by restricting the availablility of unbreakable cryptography.
Crypto-Anarchy and Virtual Communities
by Tim May
"The past two decades have produced a revolution in cryptography (crypto, for short) the science of the making of ciphers and codes. Beyond just simple ciphers, useful mainly for keeping communications secret, modern crypto includes diverse tools for authentication of messages, for digital time stamping of documents, for hiding messages in other documents (steganography), and even for schemes for digital cash."
Untraceable Digital Cash, Information Markets, and BlackNet
by Tim May
"In [this paper] ... I realized it would be best to concentrate on a specific example rather than speak in generalities or try to educate folks about what digital cash is, how it works, how regulators and law enforcement types will try to control it, etc. I use an experimental--and controversial--experiment I released on the Net several years ago, BlackNet, as this example."
