Introduction – Episode XXI:
Notes to show(s): Apologies for the delay with both episodes. To make up for the delay on episode XXI, we’re posting episode XXII the day after we recorded it, as well as a free bonus segment! It’s an interview with Peter Schiff discussing the economy. All great stuff! Episode XXI discusses the economic meltdown, etc. Episode XXII discusses Election 2008 and the coronation of our new messianic Dictator-in-Chief, Obama! Though, rest assured, we’d crap just as much on McCain if he were (s)elected Fuhrer-in-Chief… but because we’re non-partisan around here (well, except for our support of Ron Paul), everyone’s fair game! Enjoy the show, stock up on guns, buy some storable foods and gold/silver, and get ready! Things are going to get really nasty–the Rockefellers and Brzezinski demand it so!
Secession: The Final Frontier

Secession: How Vermont and All the Other States Can Save Themselves from the Empire. By Thomas H. Naylor. Foreword by Kirkpatrick Sale. Feral House, 2008. 119 pages.
As a general matter, most Americans insist on placing their collective faith in “democracy” as the primary means to address the escalating problems of rising consumer and commodity prices, the value of the U.S. dollar on the edge of free-fall, a foreign policy based on aggressive imperialism, and the gradual erosion of the nation’s infrastructure and natural resources. These are undoubtedly issues of great importance and concern. And yet, Americans seem to have either lost total faith in the electoral process and feel utterly powerless, or they still honestly believe that their votes for the “right” presidential candidate will “make a difference” or lead to “change” (Obama, anyone?). This stark reality of democratic politics applies just as well to the average citizen living in the rest of the Americas, much of Europe, Australia, parts of Asia and South America, or in any other country purportedly based on democratic values.
Hans-Hermann Hoppe – “On the Impossibility of Limited Government and the Prospects for a Second American Revolution”
On the Impossibility of Limited Government and the Prospects for a Second American Revolution
Hans-Hermann Hoppe | June 28, 2008
n a recent survey, people of different nationalities were asked how proud they were to be American, German, French, etc., and whether or not they believed that the world would be a better place if other countries were just like their own. The countries ranking highest in terms of national pride were the United States and Austria. As interesting as it would be to consider the case of Austria, we shall concentrate here on the United States and the question of whether and to what extent the American claim can be justified.
In the following, we will identify three main sources of American national pride, the first two of which are justified sources of pride, while the third actually represents a fateful error. Finally, we will look at how this error might be repaired.
Native Hawaiians blockade historic palace
CNN | May 1, 2008
A group of native Hawaiians occupied the grounds of the old Hawaiian monarchy’s royal residence Wednesday, vowing to stay and do the business of the kingdom’s government.
“It is through a greater realm than ours” that the group took this action, said Mahealani Kahau, elected leader of the group, called Hawaiian Kingdom Government. “Today and every day, we will be here to assume our role.”
