Mark Levin Defines Statism in new book "Liberty & Tyranny"

Author and radio personality Mark Levin (a.k.a. The Great One) appeared on the Sean Hannity Show promoting his new book titled: "Liberty & Tyranny."

The show aired March 23, 2009. The video is posted in two parts.

Your vocabulary will be greatly enhanced when you understand the definitions and meaning of statism and statists. Also, your perspective of the relationship of government to our fellow citizens will be very clear, and unsettling.

Levin knows the importance, too. He pounds on statism to help others get its meaning.

You bes' be listenin' to yo Mises

Nobel Laureate Ludwig Von Mises, an Austrian School economist, also foresaw all of what we face because he too lived through the Great Depression as well as the rise of Hitler after the Wiemar Republic.
What governments did to create and prolong those fragile economies mirrors what Obama and Bernanke are doing now.
Here is what Mises said about credit expansion:

"There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.

"The credit expansion boom is built on the sands of banknotes and deposits. It must collapse.

"The boom is called good business, prosperity, and upswing. Its unavoidable aftermath, the readjustment of conditions to the real data of the market, is called crisis, slump, bad business, depression.

"The boom squanders through malinvestment scarce factors of production and reduces the stock available through over-consumption; its alleged blessings are paid for by impoverishment.

"The boom produces impoverishment. But still more disastrous are its moral ravages. It makes people despondent and dispirited. The more optimistic they were under the illusory prosperity of the boom, the greater is their despair and their feeling of frustration. The individual is always ready to ascribe his good luck to his own efficiency and to take it as a well-deserved reward for his talent, application, and probity. But reverses of fortune he always charges to other people, and most of all to the absurdity of social and political institutions. He does not blame the authorities for having fostered the boom. He reviles them for the inevitable collapse. In the opinion of the public, more inflation and more credit expansion are the only remedy against the evils which inflation and credit expansion have brought about."

TOTUS has new seal and poster

The Teleprompter of the United States unveiled its new official TOTUS seal and accompanying poster.
While not totally original, the icons are spot-on for their communicative value.
In the new era of prohibition of using the term "terrorist" to "man-made disaster," using safer icons was preferred.

Obama on Leno: Bowling skills like Special Olympics

Without his trusty Teleprompter of the United States (TOTUS) Obama relates his bowling skills to the Special Olympics.
And, Keith Olberhole of MSN-BS, asks "What are WE going to do ... er what is HE going to to about it?"
Already the lefty blogs are screeeeeming at Olberhole for mentioning it on the air, because there was still time to edit out Obama's demeaning remark before broadcast.

TOTUS = Teleprompter of the United States now has a blog

Now we are to refer to it as: Teleprompter of the United States (TOTUS)

Court Upholds EPA Crackdown on Agriculture

The U.S. District Court of Appeals in Washington ruled that the Clean Air Act authorizes the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate agriculture in the United States. The case stemmed from the American Farm Bureau Federation's appeal of a 2006 EPA effort to hold farms to the same standards as cities with regard to particulate air pollution.
EPA spokeswoman Virginia Landers lauded the court for rejecting the argument that farming naturally entails stirring up dust. "When you get right down to it, the whole agricultural process of turning over the soil to plant crops is unnatural," Landers observed. "No plant sows its own seeds in such a destructive and unhealthy manner."

Landers said the contention that EPA rules banning the emission of dust would be economically devastating to the industry is irrelevant. "Our mandate is to safeguard the environment," Landers pointed out. "'Raping the land' is not a protected activity under the Clean Air Act. Those who cannot conduct their business in an environmentally approved manner should look for other work. If this means that farmland reverts to its natural state, so much the better for the planet."

Ayn Rand quote: "A free economy will not break down. All depressions are caused by government interference and the cure that is always offered . . . is more of the same poisons that caused the disasters."

Hat Tip: Disloyal Opposition

A while back, I wrote about a Minnesota man who spent two months in prison until laboratory tests revealed that the white powder in his deodorant container was actually deodorant -- not the cocaine indicated by an initial field test.

As disturbing as that case was, it was far from the full story. In fact, a new report (PDF) funded by the Marijuana Policy Project reveals that commonly used field drug test kits are unreliable, often returning false positive results that put the freedom and reputations of innocent people in jeopardy.

Good News: Republicans are Leaderless!

“Liberals want to change the world. Conservatives want to be left alone. Guess who’ll win?” – Billboard in Caldwell, ID.

There is much talk at this time about the Republican Party being “leaderless”. The Obamabots tried to position the Golden Microphone, Rush Limbaugh, as leader of the GOP.

Many elected GOP’ers are trying, to varying degrees, to become leader(s). Some embrace Limbaugh’s call for socialist-leaning Obama to fail; others middle-of-the-road it; others reject his call.

Limbaugh rightly doesn’t care what positions the politicians take. Nobel Laureate James Buchanan aptly developed the “Public Choice Theory” basically showing politicians act according to their own self-interest (read, preservation) while the ethereal “national or public interest” takes a back seat. Actually, there is no such thing as the public interest or the greater good. Only individual interests or goods are real.

Conservatives are terrible joiners. They tend to be self actualized, not needing to identify with groups. Liberals love community.

Republicans are in the party mostly for ego enhancement and power. Conservatives vote and work for Republicans to hopefully promote their personal values. Most of the time, conservatives are very disappointed at Republican results. The three George Bush’s terms are perfect examples.

Republicans don’t often win elections without energizing conservatives. Many Republicans don’t want conservative leaders or candidates.

Thus, Republicans are now leaderless, which is good, and which will win elections.

Here is why. The old organization model of elected Republican leaders deciding matters from the top-down is thankfully gone; destroyed by the 2006 and 2008 elections.

Emerging is a conservative catallaxy, “[out of chaos] an order without planned ends, characterized by the ‘spontaneous order’ which emerges when individuals pursue their own ends within a framework set by laws and tradition,” as per Nobel Laureate Friedrich A. Hayek. I might add “and technology,” too.

For example, the individuals who started Top Conservatives On Twitter (#tcot) were among many who called for and offered a clearinghouse for the recent Tea Party protests that occurred in over 50 cities, only six days after the now famous “Rant Heard ‘Round the World” by MSNBC’s financial commentator Rick Santelli. One protester, noting her amazement at the 1400+ turnout, said that conservatives rarely participate in events such as these.

Pretty good! The Tea Party Protests were but the beta test for said conservative catallaxy. This wasn’t a Republican National Committee (RNC) designed program. Only a few elected Republicans pitched in to help and they are generally grassroots-styled conservatives who happened to get elected by surviving the GOP “leadership” gauntlet of candidate selection.

The next beta test for #tcot, et. al. will be the upcoming April 15th Tea Party Protest. Will individuals again pursue their own ends spontaneously?

I was unable to attend a Tea Party Protest but I did participate. I spontaneously stapled a NOBAMA tag on a tea bag, placed it in a toilet, took a picture and uploaded the photo for other twitter’ers to use. This was my individual contribution to the protest. Again, I did this with no leadership from the Republicans.

Now, multiply my miniscule spontaneous effort by millions and millions. This is the free-market at work in the marketplace of ideas. Good ideas will be shared (an order without planned ends) then “purchased” by millions and millions using such miniscule efforts as currency.

“The average man is both better informed and less corruptible when buying in the marketplace than when voting in political elections,” said another Nobel Laureate Ludwig Von Mises. Need I mention ACORN?

To his credit, newly minted RNC chairman Michael Steele appears to be dusting out the old top-down model of power seeking.

If he focuses on what the RNC can do to contribute to the millions and millions of energetic individuals who are pursuing their own ends, instead of trying to attract millions and millions to join the RNC to further its ends; Steele may find a fountain of eager supporters helping him.

After all, this is the timeless struggle of the individual vs. the collective. Consider the RNC actually siding and demonstrating in its actions that it favors the individual. The liberals love community and obviously community organizers.

Let’s test it again in the marketplace of ideas. Let’s see who purchases the collective. Have faith in the marketplace, not in politics and especially not in political leaders.

The old RNC paradigm was the Republican collective vs. the Democrat collective. Shift it to the individual who happens to vote Republican.

The liberals will be totally exposed and who is going to buy that? ... Rick Santelli, or now, big-time Democrat supporter “Mad Money” Jim Cramer? Remember the protester with the sign reading: “Your mortgage is not my problem.” It encapsulates the individual vs. the collective. Guess who’ll win?

Laird Maxwell is President of the soon-to-be launched University of Conservatives.

The Conservative-Republican Marriage

Political movements think in terms of issues and philosophy.  Thus conservatives judge partisan allies by how faithful they have been to conservative ideas such as limited, constitutional government.

Political parties, on the other hand, think in terms of partisan loyalty. Republicans are no different from the Democrats in this regard.  Republicans judge their political allies by whether they vote for "us" or "them" (the Democrats).

The difference between conservatives and partisan Republicans in priorities and goals must inevitably lead to conflict.  It's like a marriage in which a man and woman disagree about fundamental values and about critical questions such as whether to have children. The differences go to the heart of the concept of marriage.

In the union between the conservative movement and the Republican Party, the movement has fulfilled its obligations faithfully.  The Republican Party has been caught stumbling home after midnight, smelling of booze and cheap perfume.

As long as we serve as its enabler, the Republican Party will never change.  They'll keep promising not do it again, and we'll keep forgiving them. 

It's time to say: NO MORE!

Global Warming dingbats protest today in DC's freezing snow (Photo)

Well, well ... the dingy "poached-earthers" hold their long-planned protest march in the frozen snow today in Washington DC.
It is odd, that many times such events are planned, the weather turns freezing.
Here is a picture of the event.
P.S.  Use the photo as a "fact check" when the ultra-left media tells you how many people attended this "scorching" event.

Excellent article "Sen. Cornyn Wrong: 'RINO's' are not the answer."

Here is the link: to Pau Ibrahim's well-written article.

It is non-conservative Republicans who have gotten the party to where it is today. It is the massive spending and government enlargement that have forced a significant part of the base to abandon the GOP. It is the pork projects and the related corruption of "moderates" that have dragged down the Republican brand. The people who have decidedly not been the downfall of the Republican Party are its conservatives. (...)

In 2006, the same NRSC now headed by Cornyn went all out for then-Rhode Island Senator Lincoln Chafee, who faced a serious primary challenge from conservative Steve Laffey. The NRSC spent $1.2 million on behalf of Chafee, the Republican National Committee unleashed the 72-hour get-out-the-vote drive usually reserved for general elections, and even Laura Bush campaigned for the same senator who refused to vote for her husband only two years prior.

With this help, Chafee managed to win the primary, but lost the general election by more than 7 percent of the vote. Soon thereafter, he left the Republican Party and endorsed Barack Obama for President. (...)
