Macko Unleashed #31

Print
SEPTEMBER 25, AD 2012

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

Many campaign events, computer problems and some minor medical issues prevented you from receiving Macko Unleashed for several weeks, for which I express deepest regret. I look forward to another issue before the election.

 

LAST MINUTE EVENTS  AND A CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS

 

5:45 PM to 8 PM Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 26 Members of the Lake County and I will meet in the parking lot behind La Vera Party Center, 32200 Chardon Road, Willoughby Hills and distribute literature door to door in Willoughby Hills for me and Gary Johnson.

 

7:00 PM to 8:30 PM This Thursday, September 27 I will participate in an honest debate with my Green, Democrat and possibly Republican Party opponents at the Elm Street School, 585 Elm Street, Painesville. I encourage everyone to attend and ask questions.

 

7:00 PM Wednesday, October 3 This is the next scheduled meeting of the Libertarian Party of Cuyahoga County. Scott Rupert, the independent candidate for the US Senate, is scheduled to speak. He has three important qualifications: He is not Sherrod Brown or Josh Mandel and he does believe that the United States government should be governed by the Constitution. See  www. ScottRupert.com. As usual, our meeting will be held at Denny’s Restaurant, 4331 West 150th Street, Cleveland, just south of I 71. We will hold our meetings at the same location on the first Wednesday of each month. If you wish to eat, you should arrive by 6:00 PM. As always, our meetings are free and open to the public. Bring friends to become better informed.

I WILL BE UNABLE TO ATTEND THIS MEETING. FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS OUR MEETINGS HAVE NOT BEEN WELL ATTENDED TO SAY THE LEAST. I AM GOING TO ASK YOU TO RSVP TO ME BY EMAIL IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND. IF I RECEIVE LESS THAN TEN RESPONSES I WILL INFORM SCOTT TO UTILIZE HIS TIME MORE EFFICIENTLY AND I WILL NOTIFY THOSE OF YOU WHO DO PLAN TO ATTEND THE MEETING.

If you have suggestions for future speakers or programs or any other questions or comments, please email me or call me at 440-248-8620.

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

I ALSO NEED VOLUNTEERS TO DISTRIBUTE LITERATURE THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT, ESPECIALLY BEFORE THE VOTER REGISTRATION DEADLINE AND BEFORE MOST PEOPLE VOTE BY ABSENTEE BALLOT. Please email me or call at 440-248-8620 as to when and where you are available to help.

There will be several nights when I cannot attend all candidate events. If you wish to represent me where it is allowed or to distribute campaign literature for Gary Johnson and me, please contact me about that possibility.

 

ENDORSEMENTS!

I am especially happy and proud to announce my endorsement by Gary Johnson, our Libertarian candidate for President, who has more executive experience than Rombomney or any of our previous Libertarian Presidential candidates. See www.garyjohnson2012.com

I also thank Jerry Martin and the America First Party of Ohio, one of our constitutionalist competitors, for their endorsement. For more information see http://www.mackoforliberty.com/endorsements.html

 

TEA PARTIES, THE VERY GOOD AND THE VERY BAD

I want to thank Peggy Slingluff and the good patriots of the Andover Tea Party who believe in and defend liberty. On the other hand there are such fellows as Chuck Laughlin of the Lake County Tea Party and Tom Zawistowski of the Portage County Tea Party who refused to invite me to their phony Rebloodlican candidates forums. They are either Romneyoid enemies of liberty or cowards who are so terrified of the communist tyrant, Obama, that they are willing to support the fascist tyrant, Romney. In either event I will have nothing to do with them. If you wish to communicate with them, their email addresses are Tom Zawistowski <info@PortageCountyTEAParty.com> and Chuck Laughlin <lakecountyteaparty.net@gmail.com> They are no better than the corrupt establishment elites such as the City Club of Cleveland.

 

AN APPEAL TO SELF RESPECTING REPUBLICANS WHO ARE NOT FILTHY, CORRUPT COWARDS

We often hear the suggestion to “work within the Republican Party.” It would be more honorable but similar in other respects to be a pimp in a brothel/crack house which employs girls who are not yet age 18. Not only did the fascist neocon Romneyite establishment steal several primary elections from Ron Paul and prevent him from speaking at their taxpayer financed phony convention. Their vile underhanded attacks on Gary Johnson and attempts to get the honorable man, who has more executive experience than Romney and Obama combined, showed a complete disrespect for honest elections and craven cowardice. Fortunately, in most states, including Ohio, where our attorneys beat back an attack by two female puppets of the Republican Party, Kelly Mills and Cynthia Rees, and sent them back, presumably to  their kennels to howl at the moon, and repulsed another attack by the Ohio Legislature, another wholly owned Rebloodlican subsidiary, the attacks were unsuccessful. If they are willing to act this way before Romney is elected, how can anyone believe that they will not carry on the police state which Clinton, Bush and Obama built?

To all self-respecting Republicans, show courage and honor. Support Gary Johnson, Judge Jim Gray and all Libertarian candidates.

 

SPECIAL PROJECT: CITY CLUB

In 2000 the City Club of Cleveland held honest debates, including the late Congressional candidate and activist, Joel Turner, who ran against Stephanie Tubbs Jones, John McAlister, who ran for the US Senate and at least one other Libertarian patriot whose name escapes me at 1:14 AM.  Again in 2008, the City Club of Cleveland gave Paul Conroy, Robert Owens and me the opportunity to proclaim liberty. However, in 2010 the did not have any Congressional debates and this year they have excluded Libertarian Sean Stipe, independent Senate candidate, Scott Rupert and me from their phony debates. They have also ignored all of my messages except for their noncommittal response to my first message. If you wish to express yourselves about this matter go to http://www.cityclub.org/ContactUs/tabid/195/Default.aspx. Help them recollect their lost honor. Otherwise, if you are available make signs and we can hold a constitutional assembly at 850 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland.

 

THANKS TO BILL AND NYNKE PEIRCE, DR. SID STONE, DEBBIE DEAN, STEVE AND BARBARA BERECEK, MIKE CALABRESE, DENNIS VECCHIO, RICHARD DIETKE, JASON AND ALSO TO CHRIS WHO STOPPED BY TO VISIT DURING THE WARM, SOMETIMES VERY WET, FOUR DAYS WHICH I SPENT AT SOLON HOME DAYS AS WELL AS CASEY AND TODD WHO VOLUNTEERED BUT LATER HAD DIFFICULTIES. Also thanks to everyone who showed sufficient interest to learn more about the Libertarian Party, Gary Johnson and me, including my Democrat opponent who discussed several matters of political interest.

 

ALSO, THANKS TO STEVE BERECEK FOR PROVIDING SPACE AT HIS BOOTH AT THE NILES GUN SHOW AND TO STEVE AND KATHLEEN JAGODNIK FOR PROVIDING ME SPACE AT THE NORTHEAST OHIO FREEDOM ALLIANCE BOOT AT THE GEAUGA COUNTY FAIR SO THAT I COULD PROMOTE GARY JOHNSON FOR PRESIDENT, MY CAMPAIGN AND THE CAUSE OF LIBERTY.

 

THE GARY JOHNSON CAMPAIGN

PROMINENT INTERNET NEWS PERSONALITY AND PATRIOT DOCUMENTARY PRODUCER, ALEX JONES, AND FORMER GOVERNOR, AUTHOR AND TV PRODUCER JESSE VENTURA HAVE ENDORSED GARY JOHNSON FOR PRESIDENT. I believe that these are the highest level non-Libertarian Party endorsements of which I am aware. Hopefully, they are the beginning of a trend.

Penn Jillette of the comedy team, Penn and Teller, has also endorsed Governor Johnson.

Governor Johnson will be on the ballot in at least 47 states, all but Michigan, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania, and the District of Corruption, our best showing since 2000.

He is suing the Commission on Presidential Debates under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act http://www.prisonplanet.com/gary-johnson-sues-for-participation-in-pres-debates.html. Whatever you think of that law, it is true that the best way to get rid of bad laws is to enforce them, as long as no innocent people are injured. Certainly, the CPD is one of the least innocent tools of the Democrip/Rebloodlican duopoly.

All candidates for President who overcome the daunting task of ballot access and competing in primaries and who are on the ballot in states with sufficient electoral votes to win should participate fully in all presidential debates. Otherwise, the debates is totally crooked.

Phony Presidential and Vice Presidential debates are scheduled for October 3, October 11 (establishment VP candidates), October 16 and October 22 from 9 PM to 10:30 PM and will be broadcast by the establishment TV media. In a free country, we would have honest debates with Gary Johnson and the other candidates who have the statistical possibility of becoming president.

                     CAMPAIGN APPEARANCES

This is a new feature which will continue until Election Day. Unless otherwise noted, the events are free and open to the public. It is always beneficial to show popular support for candidates. Where possible, direct questions to me so that I have more opportunity to proclaim liberty. An asterisk * indicates an event where I will be addressing the audience. At all other events I will be promoting liberty by mingling with the audience.

If you know of any other candidates’ forums or opportunities to speak in my district, US 14, elsewhere in Cuyahoga County, Summit, and the Warren and Youngstown areas, please notify me as soon as possible. It is important to have as much information as possible to invite oneself to such events, especially if the organizers have not done so.

I WILL BE GLAD TO LIST APPEARANCES OF OTHER LIBERTARIAN  CANDIDATES AND OTHER PRO-LIBERTY CANDIDATES WHO HAVE NO LIBERTARIAN OPPONENTS.

As America plunges into a full blown police state with the renewal of the life imprisonment without trial provision in the 2012 and 2013 National Defense Authorization Acts and signing by Obama on with almost no mention in the kept establishment media, and the threats of World War III and economic collapse loom ever larger, it is more important than ever to do as much as we can to advance the cause of liberty. Do whatever you can. Your life and liberty and the lives and liberty of those whom you love depend upon it.

Our Mission 

Our Mission is to assist people of all ages in learning accurate Constitutional history and principles. We do this by partnering with school systems and community organizations to provide resources and curriculum materials derived from original sources. The founding fathers debated and wrote extensively about the meaning of the Constitution and exactly what our government is designed to do. Here at the Thomas Jefferson Knowledge Institute, we believe that nothing is more important than first understanding the original intent of our founders.

Dear David,
After a short break, we’re back and ready to really make a difference! Thank you for being a part of our organization. We could not thrive without your help!
 

Curriculums, Scholarships & Competitions are HERE!

 

After a long wait, the Thomas Jefferson Knowledge Institute is pleased to announce that we have several new additions to our service department.

 

First, Curriculums are available for a wide range of ages and subjects. In partnering with the National Center for Constitutional Studies, we now have Curriculums for The 5000 Year Leap, The Making of America and an I Love America course for ages 4 to 11. For more information on the Curriculums that are available, please contact Bruce Edwards at 440-884-4449 or bedwards@tjki.org.

The Progress We’ve Made So Far

 

We’re gearing up for Constitution Day 2012 (which is just a few short weeks away!) Stay tuned for the October newsletter in which we reveal just how much impact our Institute is having on the community. Let’s just say for now that our impact is over 10 times what it was in 2011!

 

As we look ahead to the coming winter and on into 2013, keep in mind that we’re barely keeping up with the demand, especially since we’re the ONLY non-profit organization in Ohio that meets the new curriculum standards in regards to Constitutional education. If you would like information on how our programs can help your local school system get up-to-date and in compliance with the new curriculum laws please CONTACT US. There are many school systems that may not know there are resources available to help them meet the new laws and we’ll be happy to provide them with everything they need.

 

Of course, none of this could be done without your support. The need continues to increase and your help is critical. If you can make a pledge, please consider committing to a monthly or annual pledge of $10, $25 or $50. You can mail your pledge to P.O. Box 31296 Independence, OH 44131 or donate through Paypal by CLICKING HERE.

PAUL RYAN, PHONY

Here is the truth about Paul Ryan:

PAUL RYAN: MORE OF THE SAME

 

By Chuck Baldwin
August 16, 2012
NewsWithViews.com

It has happened again. We go through this every four years, and every four years the vast majority of “conservatives” fall for it. This is such a broken record. What did Forrest Gump say: “Stupid is as stupid does”? And wasn’t it P.T. Barnum who said, “There’s a sucker born every minute”? Well, here we go again.

Neocon RINO George H.W. Bush picks “conservative” Dan Quayle. “Conservative” G.W. Bush picks neocon RINO Dick Cheney. Neocon RINO John McCain picks “conservative” Sarah Palin. Now, neocon RINO Mitt Romney picks “conservative” Paul Ryan. As long as there is one “conservative” on the ticket, mushy-headed “conservatives” across the country will go into a gaga, starry-eyed, hypnotic trance in support of the Republican ticket. I’m convinced that if Lucifer, himself, was the GOP Presidential candidate, he would get the support of the Religious Right and Republican “conservatives” as long as he selected a reputed “conservative” to join his ticket. And, by the way, the notable “conservative” wouldn’t think twice about joining such a ticket, either, I’m convinced.

Let’s just get this on the record: since 1960, there have only been two Presidential nominees (from the two major parties) who were not controlled by the globalist elitists. One was a Democrat, John F. Kennedy; the other was a Republican, Ronald Reagan. Kennedy was shot and killed; Reagan was shot. Every other President, Democrat or Republican, has been totally controlled, which is why none of them have done diddly-squat to make a difference in the direction of the country. On the issues that really matter, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are just more of the same!

Ok! I hear all the boos!

So, let me ask you, how many unborn babies in Massachusetts did Romney save? What did Mitt Romney do to preserve, protect, and defend the Second Amendment in the State of Massachusetts? How unlike Obamacare was Romneycare? You’re telling us that the same people who elected and reelected Ted Kennedy elected Mitt Romney, because both men are conservatives? And you expect us to not laugh, right?

Listen folks, a Presidential administration is defined more by foreign policy than by domestic policy. When it comes to rogue domestic policies attempted by the executive branch of government in Washington, D.C., there are many safeguards, checks and balances that the several sovereign states are able to do to resist said policies. In fact, when it really comes right down to it, any federal policy is only so much spit in the wind without the approval and approbation of the states. So, quit bellyaching about what the President says or does, and get serious about what your State governors, attorney generals, State legislators and senators, county sheriffs, and city mayors are doing. However, foreign policy is another matter.

The only checks and balances to a President’s foreign policy decisions reside inside the Beltway, mostly with Congress. And herein lies the problem: both Democrat and Republican congresses over the past many decades have literally abdicated their constitutional responsibilities relative to providing checks and balances to the executive branch and have granted almost dictatorial powers to the White House when it comes to foreign policy.

There is one domestic issue in which there are almost no checks and balances by anyone in the federal or State governments. And this is the outgrowth of this globalist, interventionist, Warfare State that has been proliferating exponentially ever since the Lyndon Johnson administration: the Nanny State, which is a polite way of saying, the Police State.

The Police State is excused and fueled by the Warfare State. We must have the Department of Homeland Security, because we are at war. We must have the Patriot Act, because we are at war. We must have a total surveillance society, because we are at war. We must sacrifice our individual and civil liberties, because we are at war. We must accept drones flying over our neighborhoods, because we are at war. Our bank records must be turned over to the Feds, because we are at war. Our electronic communications records must be turned over to the Feds, because we are at war. The list never ends.

To get an idea of how serious this burgeoning Police State is becoming, read this article in the very Republican-friendly Washington Times. If an article like this appears in the WT, you know the reality is actually much worse. Read the Times article.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to take the blinders off: neither Mitt Romney nor Paul Ryan is going to do anything to change the status quo. Nada. Nothing. Zero. Zilch.

As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney doesn’t have a voting record on these national Warfare State/Police State issues. But Paul Ryan does. And it isn’t pretty!

Jane Aitken wrote an excellent synopsis of Paul Ryan’s voting record that appeared on LewRockwell.com. She noted that Ryan voted for federalizing rules for driver licenses; voted to make the Patriot Act permanent; voted to allow electronic surveillance without a warrant; voted to authorize military force in Iraq; voted to spend an “emergency” $78 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; voted to declare Iraq part of the “War on Terror” with no exit date; and voted against redeploying US troops out of Iraq.

Aitken also wrote, “Congressman Ryan supports the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, federal bailouts, increased federal involvement in education, unconstitutional and undeclared wars, Medicare Part D (a multi-trillion dollar unfunded liability), stimulus spending, and foreign aid.”

See Aitken’s column.

That’s why I say, on the issues that really matter, Paul Ryan is just more of the same.

 

 

NEIL BOORTZ COMMENT ABOUT GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS

Here is an excellent commentary from oft-times libertarian talk show host, Neil Boortz about the “public” i.e. government schools. Although it is taken from an anti-liberty source, it is accurate.
