Fred Buzzeo – “To Tax Is to Destroy”

To Tax Is to Destroy

Fred Buzzeo | April 28, 2011

The landmark Supreme Court decision McCullough v. Maryland (1819) has had wide impact on the powers of the federal government. In fact, this decision, more than any other, is responsible for the incredible growth of federal authority throughout the years. Today, Washington has a tight grip on every aspect of our lives, and much of this federal intrusion is due to the “implied powers” doctrine that emanated from this court decision.

Nazi Lover Schwarzenegger: Make Me President of European Union

Kurt Nimmo | April 23, 2011

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the washed up B-actor who served a disastrous stint as California’s governor, is now gunning for the presidency of the European Union.

“The Austrian-born former body builder, 63, at loose ends as he tries to figure out what his next act should be, reportedly is being advised by aides to return to his native Europe to run for the EU presidency,” reports the AFP.

“Conventional Education Will Go the Way of Farming”

Doug French | April 15, 2011

Food is vital for survival, yet less than 2 percent of America’s population works in agriculture. That’s a big change from 100 years ago, when over 40 percent of the workforce was toiling away on the farm. If I had been born at the start of the 20th century in Kansas, rather than at the end of the 1950s, no doubt my life would have been spent on the farm.

Tyler Durden – “Obama Confirms Leadership Failure, Pulls Out Mother Of All Mutual Assured Nukes: ‘Raise Debt Ceiling Or Risk Global Recession'”

Tyler Durden | April 15, 2011

And people made fun of Hank Paulson for threatening with eternal damnation if congress didn’t stamp his multi-trillion blank check to bail out his former co-workers from Goldman. In a step that makes the Kashkari-Paulson threat seem like amateur hour, the teleprompter just received its latest high frequency directive from the Wall Street superiors, promptly delivering the latest MAD message to what continues to be perceived as an idiot audience: “Failure by Congress to raise the U.S. debt limit “could plunge the world economy back into recession,” President Barack Obama declared Friday, and he acknowledged that he must compromise on spending with Republicans who control the House to avoid such a crisis. Obama urged swift action, saying he doesn’t want the United States to get close to a deadline that would destabilize financial markets. He said he was confident Congress ultimately would raise the limit. “We always have. We will do it again,” said Obama, who voted against raising the debt limit as a freshman senator from Illinois.”

“Google Holds Out Against ‘Do Not Track’ Flag”

Ryan Singel | April 15, 2011

And then there was Chrome.

Apple made it clear this week that the next version of its Safari browser — which will ship with the upcoming version of Mac OS — will include the ability for users to tell websites not to track them, by using what’s known as the ‘Do Not Track’ header, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“Now it IS regime change: Cameron, Obama and Sarkozy promise to keep bombing Libya until Gaddafi is gone”

Tim Shipman and James Chapman | April 15, 2011

David Cameron, Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy upped the stakes in the Libya conflict last night as they vowed to fight on until Colonel Gaddafi is ousted.

In a joint article, the British, American and French leaders warned that it would be an ‘unconscionable betrayal’ were Nato to stop bombing with the dictator still in power.

American Small Business League – “Obama Budget Plan: Higher Taxes on Small Businesses, and Federal Small Business Contracts for Fortune 500 Firms”

“Obama Budget Plan: Higher Taxes on Small Businesses, and Federal Small Business Contracts for Fortune 500 Firms”

American Small Business League | April 13, 2011

Petaluma, Calif. – Today President Barack Obama rolled out his blueprint for deficit reduction, during which he highlighted a plan to implement higher taxes on “the wealthy.” The American Small Business League (ASBL) is concerned that President Obama’s reference to the wealthy, meaning wage earners over $250,000 a year, is actually a reference to a large percentage of America’s 27 million small businesses.

Murray N. Rothbard – “The Tyranny of Government Courts and Prisons”

http://mises.org/daily/5199/The-Tyranny-of-Government-Courts-and-Prisons

“The Tyranny of Government Courts and Prisons”

Murray N. Rothbard | April 12, 2011

Compulsory labor permeates our legal and judicial structure. Thus, much-venerated judicial procedure rests upon coerced testimony. Since it is axiomatic to libertarianism that all coercion — in this case, all coerced labor — against everyone except convicted criminals be eliminated, this means that compulsory testimony must be abolished as well. In recent years, it is true, the courts have been alive to the Fifth Amendment protection that no alleged criminal be forced to testify against himself — to provide the material for his own conviction. The legislatures have been significantly weakening this protection by passing immunity laws, offering immunity from prosecution if someone will testify against his fellows — and, furthermore, compelling the witness to accept the offer and testify against his associates. But compelling testimony from anyone for any reason is forced labor — and, furthermore, is akin to kidnapping, since the person is forced to appear at the hearing or trial and is then forced to perform the labor of giving testimony. The problem is not only the recent immunity laws; the problem is to eliminate all coerced testimony, including the universal subpoenaing of witnesses to a crime, and then forcing them to testify. In the case of witnesses, there is no question whatever of their being guilty of a crime, so the use of compulsion against them — a use that no one has questioned until now — has even less justification than compelling testimony from accused criminals.

Economic Collapse – “Corrupted!: 5 Shocking Examples Of Government Corruption That Will Blow Your Mind”

“Corrupted!: 5 Shocking Examples Of Government Corruption That Will Blow Your Mind”

Economic Collapse | April 14, 2011

At times it really is breathtaking how corrupted the U.S. government has become. Government corruption has become so endemic in our society that most people have just kind of accepted it as “normal”. But shouldn’t we all get hopping mad when we learn that the Federal Reserve sent billions of dollars in bailout money to addresses in the Cayman Islands? Shouldn’t we all be furious when one of the leading candidates for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, Mitt Romney, declares that he is “not going to spend my time focusing on the Federal Reserve”? Shouldn’t we all be alarmed when Nancy Pelosi gives a speech in which she says that “elections shouldn’t matter”? Shouldn’t we all demand that someone be held accountable when we find out that a CBO analysis shows that the “$38.5 billion” in spending cuts will only reduce the budget deficit for this year by $352 million dollars? On top of everything else, shouldn’t we all be absolutely horrified when the TSA gropes little 6 year old girls and virtually none of our politicians demand change?

Coming soon? New podcasts, uhh-whaa’?

Don’t hold me to it, but there’s a good chance that this podcast may be resurrected with a new co-host.

I know, I know: “Took ya damn long enough, Mike.”  Yep, and you’re right.

But, sometimes, it requires a certain type to be able to speak somewhat authoritatively (and passionately!) on topics, and I may have found someone capable of doing so while also bringing different ideas to the table (which is never a bad thing).

Most definitely, we shall see soon enough.

Introduction – Episode XXII:

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!

Introduction:

Note to show: Apologies for the late posting, but it has been a busy week.  Nonetheless, there will be a new podcast in relatively short order to make up for it (recorded 24 October 2008, tonight).  This show, recorded approximately a week ago, still hits home on a lot of important topics.  Enjoy!  And we’ll soon be updating the website again.  Things have been tough on my end lately, but they’re slowly starting to improve.  Thanks for your patience otherwise.  — M.
