Christopher Waid

Christopher Waid, a liberty-lover, is the Founder and CEO of ThinkPenguin, Inc. ThinkPenguin was created out of concern for the lack of privacy and freedom in the tech sphere. At the time of the companies founding there was not a single entity focused on free-software respecting hardware, or providing end-user support for users wanting to use only freedom-respecting software.

Rand Paul's Eye-Roll Marked the End of the 9/11 Era

Republicans didn't bother to hold their 2004 nominating convention in some far-flung purple state where every county was going to count that November. The Bush-Cheney campaign, which started running advertisements featuring a charred World Trade Center literally one day after the president announced his re-election bid, had a much more potent idea. The RNC happened only three miles from Ground Zero, at Madison Square Garden. Dick Cheney thundered from the stage that "if the killers of September 11 thought we had lost the will to defend our freedom, they did not know America and they did not know George W. Bush."

Fast forward twelve years to Thursday's Republican presidential debate, the first of the 2016 campaign. Chris Christie was eager to capitalize on his experience as a U.S. Attorney in New Jersey following the attacks, delivering a saccharine line about how "the hugs that I remember are the hugs that I gave to the families who lost their people on September 11th."

Senator Rand Paul, at that moment engaged with Christie on a debate about mass surveillance, then gave what we'll unilaterally dub as the most monumental eyeroll in presidential debate history:

When Will We Learn?
by Harry Browne
September 12, 2001

http://www.antiwar.com/orig/browne2.html

The terrorist attacks against America comprise a horrible tragedy. But they shouldn't be a surprise.

It is well known that in war, the first casualty is truth – that during any war truth is forsaken for propaganda. But sanity was a prior casualty: it was the loss of sanity that led to war in the first place.

Our foreign policy has been insane for decades. It was only a matter of time until Americans would have to suffer personally for it. It is a terrible tragedy of life that the innocent so often have to suffer for the sins of the guilty.

When will we learn that we can't allow our politicians to bully the world without someone bullying back eventually?

President Bush has authorized continued bombing of innocent people in Iraq. President Clinton bombed innocent people in the Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Serbia. President Bush Senior invaded Iraq and Panama. President Reagan bombed innocent people in Libya and invaded Grenada. And on and on it goes.

Did we think the people who lost their families and friends and property in all that destruction would love America for what happened?

When will we learn that violence always begets violence?

Teaching Lessons

Supposedly, Reagan bombed Libya to teach Muammar al-Qaddafi a lesson about terrorism. But shortly thereafter a PanAm plane was destroyed over Scotland, and our government tried to convince the world it was Libyans who did it.

When will we learn that "teaching someone a lesson" never teaches anything but resentment – that it only inspires the recipient to greater acts of defiance.

How many times on Tuesday did we hear someone describe the terrorist attacks as "cowardly acts"? But as misguided and despicable as they were, they were anything but cowardly. The people who committed them knowingly gave their lives for whatever stupid beliefs they held.

But what about the American presidents who order bombings of innocent people – while the presidents remain completely insulated from any danger? What would you call their acts?

When will we learn that forsaking truth and reason in the heat of battle almost always assures that we will lose the battle?

Losing our Last Freedoms

And now, as sure as night follows day, we will be told we must give up more of our freedoms to avenge what never should have happened in the first place.

When will we learn that it makes no sense to give up our freedoms in the name of freedom?

What to Do

What should be done?

First of all, stop the hysteria. Stand back and ask how this could have happened. Ask how a prosperous country isolated by two oceans could have so embroiled itself in other people's business that someone would want to do us harm. Even sitting in the middle of Europe, Switzerland isn't beset by terrorist attacks, because the Swiss mind their own business.

Second, resolve that we won't let our leaders use this occasion to commit their own terrorist acts upon more innocent people, foreign and domestic, that will inspire more terrorist attacks in the future.

Third, find a way, with enforceable constitutional limits, to prevent our leaders from ever again provoking this kind of anger against America.

Patriotism?

There are those who will say this article is unpatriotic and un-American – that this is not a time to question our country or our leaders.

When will we learn that without freedom and sanity, there is no reason to be patriotic?

Harry Browne was the 2000 Libertarian Party candidate for President. You can read more of his articles at www.HarryBrowne.org, his books are available at www.HBBooks.com.

The Sanders-Republican Checklist

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2015/08/laurence-m-vance/bernie-sanders/

Bernie Sanders is an Independent U.S. Senator from Vermont who caucuses with the Democrats. He is a self-proclaimed socialist. He is a Democratic candidate for president. He is many things, but a Republican he is not.

Yet, even though most people think there are many differences between Sanders and the typical Republican member of Congress and between Sanders and the current crop of Republican presidential candidates, there are not as many differences as most people think.

It is because Sanders and Republicans support so many of the same things that I have prepared this Sanders-Republican checklist.

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on Head Start:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on farm subsidies:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on Medicare:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on Medicaid:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on Social Security:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on food stamps:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and using it to provide the refundable Additional Child Tax Credit:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and using it to give students Pell Grants:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG):

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on the National School Lunch Program (NSLP):

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF):

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on Supplemental Security Income (SSI):

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP):

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers to provide the refundable Earned Income Tax Credit (ETIC):

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and using it to pay unemployment benefits:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and using it to fund Section 8 rent subsidies:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and using it to fund community health centers:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP):

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and funding federal job training programs:

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Supports taking money from U.S. taxpayers and spending it on Women, Infants, and Children (WIC):

[√]  Bernie Sanders    [√]  The majority of Republicans

Clearly, Republicans are incorrigible welfare statists just like Democrats, and just like the "socialist" Bernie Sanders.

Big Tent Activism: On Why I Painted Kevin Zeese

Educate! , , ,
By Robert Shetterly, www.commondreams.org

Screen Shot 2014-05-31 at 10.20.45 AM

To explain why I painted Kevin Zeese as part of the Americans Who Tell the Truth portrait project I want to tell two stories that would seem to have nothing to do with Kevin. The first involves hearing Rev, Joseph Lowery, the great civil rights activist, speak at Camp Casey in Crawford, Texas in April of 2006 — seven years before I had even heard of Kevin. Camp Casey was established in 2005 to support Cindy Sheehan's heroic struggle, as she camped in a ditch outside President George W. Bush's Crawford ranch, demanding that the president come out and explain to her what "noble cause" her son Casey had died for in Iraq. People came from all over the US to support Cindy. The President refused to appear. It's a sad day when a leader responsible for war cannot tell a grieving parent why her sacrifice was necessary. The encampment grew and grew, becoming a nexus of anti-war activity, networking, community building, and activist education. A stage had been built at one end of a huge circus tent for speakers & musicians. Over the few days I was there, I heard Cindy speak, as well as Diane Wilson, Ann Wright, Robert Jensen, Eliza Gilkyson, and Rev. Lowery.

Cutting off H2O to the NSA

1. 4th Amendment Protection Act. Our signature model legislation, the 4th Amendment Protection Act, would ban a state from taking actions which provide "material support" or assistance to warrantless federal spying programs. This includes provisioning of resources, and banning the state from using data obtained without warrant in state court. States should pass this legislation whether they have a physical NSA facility or not, banning the warrantless data in court will have an immediate effect. And, since the NSA rarely publicizes its plans in advance, it's essential to ensure that their ability to expand with more data center facilities around the country is restricted before they get off the ground. (learn more here) 2. Electronic Data Privacy Act. For those states where legislators are not yet willing or able to get the full 4th Amendment Protection Act passed, the Electronic Data Privacy Act is a powerful first step. By banning the use of warrantless data in court, this state legislation can thwart some of the practical effects of federal spying programs. (learn more here)

atv Reset the net

Fight for our Future has launched a "Reset The Net Campaign" for June 5th, 2014. The problem, as outlined at Reset the Net, is: "The NSA is exploiting weak links in Internet security to spy on the entire world, twisting the Internet we love into something it was never meant to be: a panopticon." It defines a solution as "We can't stop targeted hacking, but we *can* stop mass surveillance, by building proven security into the everyday Internet." Finally, the plan is to "First, get hundreds of sites & apps to add proven security (like SSL). Then on June 5, we'll run a splash screen *everywhere* to spread NSA-resistant privacy tools." Shahid Buttar and Kevin Zeese examine the plan is this clip from Acronym TV (full episode here).

A Libertarian Earth Day

https://c4ss.org/content/26565

The United States has a varied history with environmentalism. Americans have always taken pride in their natural heritage. The conservation movement of the 1890s, championed by the likes of John Muir, gave rise to civic, public and private sector institutions dedicated to conservation. The industrial revolution, however, coupled with the rise of modern capitalism, the era of the New Deal and the economic boom following WWII assimilated Americans into growth economics.  This varied history, two opposing Americas, came to a head in the decade of change, the 1960s. The modern environmental movement finds its roots in the discourse of this era.

This modern environmentalism, fueled by the energy of a growing anti-war movement, bore the first nationally recognized Earth Day – April 22, 1970. On this day, 20 million Americans occupied streets, parks, college campuses and public squares to build a social movement for sustainability.

As a result, the floor of the cage expanded. The sustainability movement yielded the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency along with the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts. Though progress was made and the floor expanded, the cage still remained.
