Libertarian Commentary on the News #13-10C: Islamic wars and more

Islamic wars: Arab street front – Freedom of speech
Libya Imprisons American for Allegedly Proselytizing Christianity in Benghazi

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: This is part of a vast conspiracy, apparently:  at least seven people (including this “Swedish-American, a Korean, a Sud-Afrikaan, and a now-dead Egyptian) were arrested with 40,000 books – the “proselytizing” is better described as “preaching the Gospel” – and the Egyptian was supposedly tortured in prison and died of “natural causes” because he was diabetic and had heart problems and wasn’t given any medicine.  Natural, indeed, just as their efforts are not just evil and immoral but totally illegal, since the new Libyan constitution prohibits censorship and prohibition on importing books.  Clearly, the Libyan government is following the example of its greatest supporter in the West, the United States’ federal government.  (I am told by VERY reliable sources that this entire story is just a bunch of Zionist-Fascist propaganda to turn Americans, Koreans, and Afrikaaners against Libya’s wonderful Islamic, peaceful, plurisitic, inclusive, and diverse government and population, and that veterans of the Arab Spring would NEVER do anything like this.)

Islamic wars: American front – Freedom of speech
Obama’s Religious Freedom Appointee Involved in Muslim Event Calling for Limits to 1st Amendment

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: So he just is not hiding his ideas – unlike most of the “messiah’s” minions, who lie about their goals.  I really don’t know why he bothers trying to limit the 1st Amendment, instead of just ignoring it the way most of his fellow minions ignore that pesky ol’ 2nd Amendment – or the way Libyan government officials (above) ignore their own constitution.  Obviously the Founding Fathers did not intend that freedom of expression extend to defaming religions or religious leaders.  Is it any wonder that Libya ignores basic human freedoms?

Freedom from tyranny – Nazgul
SCOTUS: That dog can’t hunt

(USA Today) “A drug-sniffing dog at your doorstep is a step too far, the Supreme Court has decided. … Tuesday’s ruling stemmed from a 2006 incident in which Miami-Dade police and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration set up surveillance on a house after being tipped to a possible marijuana growing operation. An officer went up to the house with a dog named Franky, who quickly detected the odor of pot. The sniff was used to obtain a search warrant from a judge.” (03/26/13)

Nathan: Well, this is good, but I don’t expect it to change the way the drug-warriors go about their jack-booted way in terrorizing and tyrannizing the subjects of this fair land. They will find a way around this ruling as they have time after time.  And just how many people have been arrested and convicted because of something like this (or very similar) – and will THEY be set free and recompensed for what was illegally done to them?  FAT CHANCE.

Mama’s Note: I can’t remember where I saw it now, but I read yesterday that this was not a victory for anyone, but a set up to justify further surveillance by drones and such. Since the drone would be in the air, and other high tech stuff could be used from the “public street,” there would be no conflict. Obviously, the only real victory would be a total repeal of all of the prohibition laws. Then there would be no excuse to snoop.

Islamic wars: Afghani front
Kerry ‘Very Comfortable’ With Karzai Saying the Media Misconstrued His Offensive Remarks

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Kerry is comfortable with almost anything, of course, as long as he gets enough mirror time and has all of his accustomed luxuries as a Conscript Father emeritus.  One of several new American proconsuls (look it up), he is supposed to take this kind of abuse with a smile – and John Kerry has a killer smile!

Theft by government – Abominable Act (Obummercare)
Democrat: Obamacare ‘Wasn’t Fairly Vetted,’ Regulations ‘Way Too Onerous’

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Obviously a GOP sleeper agent who has blown his cover.

Congress in action – Theft by government
Rep. Grayson on Sequester: ‘The Wailing Will Begin’

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Remember, it takes time to distribute and rehearse the scripts.  Just think, a future PSA/campaign ad star could be standing in a dole line near you RIGHT NOW!

Crash of 2009 – The “messiah”
CBO: America Will Never See Full Employment Under Obama

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: Or anyone else infesting that big white building at 1600 PA.  Full employment is possible in a free market, but would mean that we don’t really need government to tell us what to do to stave off economic collapse.

White House to Sheriffs: Follow Law in Enforcing Gun Control Measures

(CNSNews.com) President Barack Obama’s gun control measures reflect his commitment to the Second Amendment, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday, adding that local law enforcement should enforce any measures passed at the federal level. The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) has the support of 381 sheriffs and the cooperation of 15 state sheriff associations asserting they would not enforce federal or state gun laws they consider unconstitutional.

Nathan: Why should elected sheriffs (highest office in each county) bother to follow ANY law – Carney’s boss doesn’t and not many of his minions do, either.  But then, this lying piece of trash with his baby face – the new Goebbels – is just doing what he is paid (or pays) to do: lie for the resident of 1600 PA.  Meanwhile, in one of those battlefield states:

Mama’s Note: Again, the obvious answer is for the local folks to pay for the sheriff’s department themselves. Those who pay the piper call the tune. I’m very sure that economic pressure will limit the number who actually wind up defending the rights of their constituents. Unfortunately, they have families to feed and mortgages to pay as much as anyone else.

CO: Sheriff says lawmakers holding up pay raises over gun stance

(Fox News) “One of a handful of Colorado sheriffs who oppose several gun control bills working their way through the state legislature claims lawmakers are threatening the salaries of sheriffs to punish them for their position. … El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, while saying he would be obliged to enforce new law, publicly said he would willfully ignore a ban on high-capacity magazines and may even sue to overturn new laws he deems unconstitutional. Now, he says a bill that would raise sheriffs’ salaries is being held up at the Capitol and he knows why.” (03/26/13)

Nathan: The”handful” appears to be several dozen, although not all have spoken out too loudly, because of this.  Both El Paso and Weld County Sheriffs have spoken out: two of the more populous counties.  I have no reason to doubt his claim in this matter.  The state government of Colorado has played dirty for decades with the counties and private businesses and individuals, stealing money and backed by nazgul time and again.

NRA’s LaPierre on Assault Weapons Rhetoric: ‘It’s All a Lie’

(CNSNews.com)

Nathan: As it is with MOST of what this regime does.  As it was with the General Assembly and governor in Colorado, and in New York before that.  Lies and more lies:  “millions of children are killed with assault weapons,” and “12,000 will die this year because of guns,” and all the rest.  Even the NRA SEEMS to be waking up to the fact that the time for compromise is past: decades past.  The time of obeying illegal, immoral (and unconstitutional, if that matters) “laws” is past, the time of having families and people disarmed so that they can be killed in hunting preserves like schools and theatres and malls is past.
