Leaving the USA

Well, I would like to live in Ireland and even with the bad economy, give it a go, however I'm not sure just how bad it is.

I don't require a lot to be happy. A small town, good fishing, perhaps hunting (optional), quiet green cool hills to relax and read good books, good neighbors, a nice supporting job of repairing or perhaps a little shop on the main street in town to sell goods and talk with the people. All without permission from a government to do so.

Rights activist Julian Heicklen flees US, takes refuge in Israel

The Libertarian News Examiner has confirmed that longtime libertarian rights activist Julian Heicklen fled the United States on May 22 for Israel where he was granted political asylum and Israeli citizenship.

Responding to an inquiry from the Libertarian News Examiner, Heicklen said, "I decided to leave the US on January 1, 2012, when Obama signed the NDAA of 2012, which gave him the authority to arrest and detain indefinitely any person without charges or a trial."

Is freedom finally winning against 'groupthink' propaganda?

In an article about soaring gun sales MSNBC explained why Americans are buying guns in record numbers this way:

"Many point to fears stoked by gun-rights advocates that President Barack Obama, if elected to a second term, will push legislation to rein in gun ownership."

Notice the typical collectivist groupthink in that sentence. People don't buy guns after thinking about it; they rush to buy guns because their fears were "stoked by gun-rights advocates."

FBI and Justice Department, take out Megaupload.com, SOPA results be damned

In an act of domestic terrorism the FBI and Justice Department have:

"... on their own initiative, shut down megaupload.com, the biggest of thousands of file-sharing sites online, and arrested four of its top officials. The FBI is hunting down three others who seem to be on the lam. They all face extradition and 20 years in prison. As part of the sweep, the feds issued 20 search warrants and arrived at individual houses in helicopters. They cut their way into houses, threatened with guns, confiscated $50 million in assets and outright stole 18 domain names and many servers.

Politics, tax money corrupts Global warming 'science'

The Libertarian News Examiner occasionally writes articles belittling the politicized Algorian version of Global Warming and occasionally takes flack for it.

So let's examine some of that flackery:

New War: Just substitute 'Iran' for 'Iraq,' 'nuke' for 'WMD'

On December 16 The Daily Caller ran this headline on its original home page sandwiched between the blistering banner 'MATERIAL SUPPORT' and a giant full color photo of the Twin Towers exploding:

Federal judge: Iran shares responsibility for 9/11 terror attacks

For folks who don't pay much attention, the self-chosen Ruling Class and its sit-up-and-beg mainstream media pets have been spoon-feeding us a steady diet of warmongering propaganda the same way they did under Bush leading up to the invasion of Iraq.

Global Warmers betrayed by bald-faced honesty

While barely reported in US mainstream media, which comes as little surprise to libertarians, two top US hurricane forecasters at Colorado State University admitted they "are quitting the practice of making a seasonal forecast in December because it doesn't work."

For 20 years William Gray, recently joined by Phil Klotzbach, has been preeminent at making December forecasts on how many named storms and hurricanes to expect during each official June-to-November hurricane season.

Chris Wallace discredits, discounts, disowns Ron Paul

Fox News Pundit Chris Wallace told Fox news Pundit Neil Cavuto that if Ron Paul wins the Iowa caucuses it would discredit the Iowa caucuses.

"Well, the Ron Paul people are not going to like my saying this," Fox News Pundit Chris Wallace said on Fox News Pundit Neil Cavuto's show, "Your World with Neil Cavuto," and then said anyway, "but to a certain degree it will discredit the Iowa caucuses because rightly or wrongly, I think most of the Republican establishment thinks he is not going to end up as the nominee, so therefore Iowa won't count."

Forget witch hunt, Obama approves American Terrorist Hunt

Herr Obama signed a bill (NDAAFY2012) that declares American soil to be part of the worldwide battlefield in the War on Terror and any American citizen merely suspected or accused of some form of "complicity" with terrorists will be treated on that battlefield not as a citizen with rights but as an enemy combatant with no rights whatsoever.

Will 'eternal publicity' mean justice for jury rights advocate?

New Jersey Libertarian Party candidate and jury nullification advocate Julian Heicklen is fond of saying, "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The price of justice is eternal publicity."

Heicklen, whose Monday court appearance for "jury tampering" (the act of handing FIJA pamphlets to people in public) has been indefinitely postponed, is generating plenty of publicity.

Elephants & Donkeys? It's all the same zoo

An email called Elephants & Donkeys has been sweeping mindlessly back and forth across the ignor-net from one inbox to another that attempts to paint Republicans as Good Guys and Democrats as the Baddies.

'Isolationism' is slur against noninterventionists

"Ron Paul is an isolationist, I get it," declared Sean Hannity on his radio talk show following the November 22 GOP debate that focused on foreign policy.

In eight simple words Hannity unknowingly confessed that he doesn't get it.

Or, far more likely, he knowingly joined the chickenhawk left and neocon right in using the isolationist label as a slur against peaceful, freedom-loving, non empire-building, non world-policing, non-warmongering, decent Americans.

How going green goes against the environment

Going green has nasty un-environmental consequences that rank-and-file greenies either don't know or don't care about.

For example, those multi-acre wind farms not only kill millions of birds while delivering a mere fraction of the electricity compared to nearly every other power source but 420 of them in Pennsylvania killed 10,000 bats last year.
