Walter Williams: The Passing Of A Giant
A great voice, a great
American, and a good man, who will be missed
I HAD THE PLEASURE and benefit
of reading every one of Walter Williams'
many hundreds of brilliant, insightful and
uplifting columns on which my eyes were
fortunate to fall over the last twenty years
and more. But I also had the great pleasure
of spending time with Walter Williams on a
number of occasions.
This latter good fortune allows
me to supplement the admiration for Dr.
Williams' work issuing forth from all
liberty-and-reason-loving quarters since his
passing last Tuesday with an observation
less commonly heard amongst the words of
honor and respect: Walter Williams was a
genuinely good man.
IT WAS ALWAYS PLAIN that
Williams was a devoted husband and father.
He was also a hard worker who demanded effort and
accuracy and honesty from himself.
All told, Williams was an
upright, masculine gentleman with a
confident, steady, look-you-in-the-eye
demeanor not tainted by bluster or false
pride. As I said in
my debunk of the "systemic racism" hustle
a few months ago, Walter Williams was the
solid sort of guy you want to have as your

weakness of which I ever saw sign, it was
only in that he never suffered fools
gladly-- a failing that many (myself
included) are disinclined to condemn very
harshly. The fact is, most apparent

was William's chief concern is no such
thing, but is instead willful blindness at
best, if not outright corruption and

A Former Pfizer
VP Determines There Have Been No
Excess Deaths In The UK
...adding to Johns Hopkins' Dr. Genevieve Briand's research to the
same effect in the USA.
DR. MICHAEL YEADON has been VP and Chief Scientific Officer
(Allergy & Respiratory Research) of
Pfizer. This is merely one of his truly
impressive array of credentials as an expert
voice on the subject of virology, immune
system function, and the proper and correct
view of the C19 "pandemic".
Dr. Yeadon recently taped a
statement and an interview deeply critical of current
governmental assertions about C19's
prevalence and level of threat, and of
public policies implemented as supposed
defenses against it. Among those critiques
and Dr. Yeadon's other conclusions based on
his truly expert analysis of the data will
thoroughly-expert explanation of why the
purported number of C19 "cases" is
the reason widespread
exposure to the virus beginning around
this time last year led to no
significant number of deaths,
that in fact, no excess
deaths have occurred (in the UK--
Yeadon's area of focus) this year at
that no vaccine is
...all of which making it no
great surprise that "brave new normal"
propagandist YouTube deplatformed Dr.
Yeadon's statement video within just a few hours of it
being posted on November 11. (Happily, good
folks elsewhere have given it a new home, at
least for the moment--
find the video here, along with an
unfortunately machine-made transcript of
Yeadon's statement. Yeadon's interview with
journalist Anna Brees can, surprisingly,
still be found on YouTube,
here-- at least
for the moment.)
DR. YEADON'S POSITIONS nicely
parallel the USA-focused conclusions of Dr.
Genevieve Briand (discussed
here) in regard to the fact that no
excess deaths have appeared in the stats all
year. That is, the research of both these
objective experts shows that C19 is NOT
actually a killer epidemic, the hyperbolic
screeching by invested media and political
voices to the contrary notwithstanding.
Yeadon's expert views, again, like
Briand's, fully support and affirm
everything I have been presenting about the
virus and related policy issues for months
now, here (to a world which has
apparently been paying no attention).
Indeed, Dr. Yeadon's analyses add his
insights into "cross-immunity" to the
picture, a factor plainly contributing to
the extremely low fatality rates but which I
(lacking Dr. Yeadon's vastly greater
knowledge of immunology) had not considered
in my own analysis.
I so much wish EVERY
ONE OF YOU would go and
read that article through!!! Then smack
every other person you can reach-- Kool-Aid
toss-pot or not-- and demand that they read
it through carefully, as well.
This C19 insanity
LET'S NOT MINCE WORDS. This
insanity is a
cancer, eating away at the health of
our rule of law, our prosperity-- even our
ability to think rationally.
On the other hand, if we DO all
stop "going along" right away, there's still
time for a nice normal Christmas, with an
exciting New Year on tap salted to taste
with the disgracing (and perhaps indicting)
of lots of politicians and media
personalities and scientific and medical
"experts" at whose feet can be laid all the
ruination of the last ten months.
Here's some good relevant
advice from two different "Captain
Americas"-- first the real one and then a
"In matters of style, swim with
the current; in matters of principle, stand
like a rock."
BTW, I HAVE TO PASS ALONG a
nice wicked little light-bulb moment my
wife, Doreen, had the other day on hearing
a recent news report about staffing
shortages in area hospitals due to the
staffers coming down with alleged
C19 infections. As Doreen wryly observed: "Aren't these the folks who
religiously wear high-grade masks and gloves, and wash
everything in sight 53 times a day with
sterilizing agents? How can they be getting
"Does this mean...," Doreen said with
feigned astonishment, "...that
these masks and all the rest don't do squat?! It
sure looks that way...!!"
Yup. Maybe those masks have
holes in them... SOMETHING does.
"Necessity is the plea for
every infringement of human freedom. It is
the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of
"I would rather be exposed to
the inconveniences attending too much
liberty than those attending too small a
degree of it."
"A nation of sheep will beget a
government of wolves."
...cause if he doesn't start
listening, he's toast.
WAKE UP, PAL! You've got
very little time, and you are blowing it.
Your desperate hope of gaining
any kind of traction in your quest to
overcome the monolithic media/Democrat/RINO
election fraud meant to put you out of
office rests on you distinguishing yourself
from what is to be expected from a
Biden-Harris administration in the eyes of
independents. No one new is going to the
ramparts for you while you persist in
business as usual, and without new support
from folks suddenly feeling that there's
actually something at stake that's worth
fighting for, you're going down.
Your worshipful base is not
enough. They've been doing all they can for
more than a month and getting nowhere. With

by Yours Truly
Coming Soon From Joe And Kamala: Hooray For The
by Phil Giraldi
There is something quite
scary about the way leading Democrats have
persistently wrapped their attempts to control the
American people in platitudes and self-righteous
drivel. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who are
currently pulling their team together, are no
different than the Clintons and Obamas who preceded
them and are already on course to establish
conformity by diminishing the fundamental rights
that have been hitherto enjoyed by the American
The current war
being waged against the United States and
its constitution hinges on the expressed
desire to extirpate “white supremacy” aka
“white privilege” aka “systemic racism.” It
is a convenient campaign slogan as it
immediately creates guilt and apprehension
in those white people who are foolish enough
to believe it. It also is a vague enough
term that it becomes possible to wrap a lot
of other issues into it, like gun control,
destruction of traditional education,
reparations and affirmative action, and even
de-policing urban areas. As minorities
allegedly suffer disproportionately from
coronavirus it might even be expanded to
include mandatory national lockdowns every
time a pandemic appears, as Biden has
suggested in the past.
We are already
seeing how some crimes are no longer crimes
if they are committed by sanctimonious
social justice warriors. Prosecutors in a
number of states are
dismissing charges against rioters
because they have “concluded the protesters
were exercising their basic civil rights.”
It is generally being claimed that
prosecutions continue for the “real” crimes
of arson, looting and destruction of public
property, but at least one liberal
California District Attorney
will not charge anyone who maintains
that he or she was doing what they did to
combat racism or feed their families. She
calls it considering the “needs” of the
looters. The looted shops that will as a
result go out of business and whose
employees become unemployed evidently have
The Democrats have
long been adept at playing identity
politics. They believe that appealing to a
number of groups with grievances to create a
voting majority is good for the country,
which it is not, because sooner or later the
ticket has to be paid for and deals that
abridge the freedom of most Americans must
be consummated. That will certainly take
place with Biden and Harris.
And Biden and
Harris will likely get away with much of
their divisive domestic agenda, if only
because it will be carefully hidden behind
fear of the Coronavirus and of more civil
unrest, but the one area where they will
meet real resistance is the Second
One critic describes how “There is much
overlap between Biden’s platform and
Harris’s previous presidential campaign
proposals. They both emphasize holding gun
manufacturers accountable, enacting
universal background checks, banning the
manufacture and sale of semiautomatic rifles
and higher-capacity magazines capable of
holding more than 10 rounds, [and]
prohibiting those convicted of domestic
violence from buying guns…” And that is only
for starters, with national gun registration
and some confiscation certainly being
Many Republicans as
well as Democrats own guns and will resist
any attempt at registration, much less the
seizure of certain types of firearms. The
death by shooting numbers
have indeed risen dramatically,
particularly in urban areas, but the victims
and perpetrators are largely black-on-black
and the weapons used are obtained illegally.
Ironically, the rise in crime is in large
part attributable to Democratic Party
pandering to movements like Black Lives
Matter with their message that violence is
acceptable to bring about change. To argue
that somehow controlling the legal owners of
weapons is a “safety measure” is a
To help the
Democratic Party agenda along there will
also of necessity be restrictions on free
speech. One can expect greater political
control over the propagandistic state media
like Voice of America and it is perhaps
inevitable that already censorship-heavy
social media and news sites will also be
regulated for content. Biden has appointed
as one of his transition team for
“regulating” news reporting
one Richard Stengel who has argued that
there is a flaw in the First Amendment of
the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. He
believes that free speech cannot be allowed
in some cases and that anything that
constitutes a “hate speech” should be
criminalized. Stengel explains somewhat
confusingly “I’m all for protecting thought
that we hate, but not speech that incites
hate.” This is, of course, yet another
Democratic Party gimmick to secure the
support of groups with grievances but it
will impact on every American who believes
that free speech is a fundamental right.
brilliant appointment by Biden is Ezekiel
Emanual, bioethicist brother of former Obama
Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Ezekiel is on
the Biden administration’s COVID transition
team. He has a lot of
interesting things to say, notably that
the United States should give any newly
developed and in short supply COVID vaccines
to countries with younger populations so
that the young could live while older
Americans die. He has also said that
everyone should die by age 75.
I THINK GIRALDI COVERS A LOT OF SOLID
GROUND HERE... The one thing with which I will take
issue is his happy notion that gun control measures
will be met with "real resistance".
Right now, the folks Giraldi
imagines will offer that resistance to the
Biden-Harris agenda are all "masked up", and
many have been sitting on their thumbs
watching their lifetime investment in their
small businesses evaporate because state
governors have issued plainly
unconstitutional orders telling them to do
so. Why on earth should it be imagined that
these same people will suddenly get up on
their hind legs to defend their right to
keep weapons they won't use to defend
themselves against other crimes of just as
heinous and harmful a character?
Plainly, if gun control takes
center stage on the agenda in the "new
normal", we'll just be told with hypnotic
repetition that the prevalence of guns is a
public health crisis, and their possession
by anyone is a threat to everyone. When
squads begin seizing them from individuals
one-by-one, there will be no rallying in
mutual defense. Potential supporters will be
unable to find and communicate with each
other, and the atmosphere of denunciation
will be so thick that most won't even think
There's a reason James Madison
explained that the only safe course in
defense of fundamental liberties is
immediate resistance at the first
encroachment, without worrying about
"It is proper to take alarm
at the first experiment on our liberties. We
hold this prudent jealousy to be the first
duty of Citizens and one of the noblest
characteristics of the late Revolution. The
free men of America did not wait till
usurped power had strengthened itself by
exercise and entangled the question in
precedents. They saw all the consequences in
the principle, and they avoided the
consequences by denying the principle. We
revere this lesson too much soon to forget
We've just had a year of
accepting "the principle" under which
experiments have been made on our liberties
(and it's just the most recent and audacious
of many such incrementally-more-severe
experiments conducted during the last 80
SO, A PRETTY DARK ASSESSMENT,
no? But all is not lost, not yet.
If those who love liberty climb
to their hind feet NOW, and throw off this
"COVID-19" delusion, and this sleepwalking
acquiescence to all the blandishments and
bullshit of its purveyors, America can
regain at least some degree of its proper
footing. Otherwise, we just sink deeper into
the clinging and ultimately smothering mire.
Every day that we abide the
infringements and leave un-denounced and
un-refused the complete fraud which is the
C19 narrative, our children grow more
acclimated to "the new normal" and more
forgetting of actual liberty and rule of
law-- and frankly the adults do, too. Even
those who chafe at the recognized outrage of
it all become acclimated and pacified as
time goes on.
Get up and start roaring
now, while you can still raise your
voice above a whisper (or a whimper).
AT THE SAME TIME THAT YOU ROAR
against the C19, don't neglect the overall
solution to the abuse of state power against
your liberties, no matter its ambitions or
pretexts. That just requires
behaving like a grown-up and using the
Leviathan-shrinking solution put in place
by America's Founders in anticipation of
just the sort of corruption that reigns
Implemented on a sufficient
scale, that solution shrinks the state and renders
those in control of the gnarly thing incapable of
doing great harm, regardless of the
weaknesses of the political class.
I HAVE DONE MY BEST to lead this country
to liberty from the mis-applied income tax. I have labored
hard. I've shed a lot of sweat, a fair bit of blood
and more than a few tears. But I seem to be pretty poor
at that kind of work.
When I have asked all of you for what I
firmly believe is a necessary resource to move the ball
downfield and give all of us the best chance at justice
and an end to the assault on the rule of law-- simple
testimonial videos requiring nothing from any of you
but the phone in your pocket and three minutes of speaking
from the heart-- I have had only a handful of people
answer my call.
I CAN'T KEEP GOING THIS WAY. I have to
be able to turn my attention away from writing new persuasive
or skepticism-addressing articles week after week, and
toward research, analysis and educational presentations
that will benefit everyone already in this community.
I need time to do some suing, and to bring together
the resources and talent toward that end.
As said, it is my firm belief that your
testimonial videos are the resource that I need to make
big things happen, and they are unquestionably the thing
I need to allow me to turn my attention away from trying
to get horses to drink at the waterhole to which I have

I'll tell you a story from when I was coaching
my kids in soccer. Both of my kids at a certain age
in their careers had run into a wall common to all but
the very exceptional. They had gotten to be pretty good,
and they wanted to enjoy the benefits of their hard
work. But the arrival of this interest coincided with
a new self-consciousness which made them reluctant to
risk failing and looking foolish. So, they were hanging
back from seizing the main chance when it appeared,
and driving for the goal.
My solution was to post on the wall of
our dining room a couple of simple points about self-discipline,
the chief of which is this: You can't score a goal if
you don't take a shot.
That's how it is here, too. If you don't
stand up, you are laying down, and you'll never score
Here is what my kids live by now, in their
own version of that lesson. I hear it from them all
the time as they excel (accompanied by the sound of
a father's breast swelling with pride): Go hard,
or go home.
You, too. Go hard, or go home.
Send those videos.
Do I ask for a lot? I want your victories
to post, your financial support, your efforts at spreading
the word, and your beautiful faces and inspiring words,
too. It IS a lot.
But it's not too much. I'll let Thomas Paine explain:
"Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered;
yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder
the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we
obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows
how to put a proper price on its goods; and it would
be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as freedom
should not be highly rated.”
We each have our reasons, and our story.
It's time, and it's needed, for you to share yours with

of our own devising which otherwise is like a badly-raised
teenage boy given whiskey and car keys and let loose
on the road to wreak havoc?

I would like you to think about what it
is that motivates you for a few moments (or all day,

to put YOUR reasons to work inspiring folks who don't

In this day and age, the most effective

Dress "business casual". Be well-groomed.
Keep yourself to no more than 2 or 3 minutes,
and keep in mind that the purpose is
not to educate,
but to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE and ENERGIZE. Your video will
be one of many to be shared. If you need to go
longer to really say your piece, go for it (but long
or short I may edit if something strikes me as
wandering or off-key or unacceptable).
You needn't feel any obligation to be profound,
and you shouldn't try to explain anything about the
law, other than to say that you have read it and you
know it's on your side. You just need to be sincere,
and uplifting. Your object is to make your audience
want to have what you have, and to be where you are
in your heart.
Don't talk to ME, or to others in the
CtC-educated community. Make remarks that are suited
to the NON-CtC-educated community, and at the same
time, be mindful that you're speaking to an
audience that doesn't yet know ANYTHING about the subject,
and whose first reaction is, "This must be illegal;
this must be dangerous; this is too good to be true."
You want to pull that audience right past such things,
and straight to a focus on truth, morality, and our
American heritage of liberty and the rule of law.
Remember: INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, ENERGIZE.
Speak about rights. Speak about morality,
and the obligation of a grown-up and responsible person
to speak the truth and to enforce the Constitution.
Speak about everyone's duty
to give to God what is God's, always, and to Caesar
only what is really Caesar's. Speak of your obligation
to respect yourself, and to look out for the current
and future well-being of your children and your fellow
citizens. Speak of
CtC, and what its information has done for your
understanding and resolve. Show the book.
If you have had victories, describe them.
Better still, show them, if possible.
Be clear about just what you accomplished:
EVERYTHING back-- Social Security, Medicare and all;
a "notice of deficiency" closing notice; an on-paper
agreement or acknowledgment that your earnings weren't
subject to the tax and everything withheld or paid-in
was an "overpayment"; a transcript showing all $0s;
or whatever happened.
When you speak of state victories, name
the state. If you had to overcome balkiness from a tax
agency before winning any victory, describe that, too!
If you're in a battle now, speak of your
resolve to uphold the law, come what may--
why you're not discouraged, and why you are not
standing down, not slinking back into the barn, and
not choosing to endorse the lies. Don't get
into details-- your audience is going to have no
idea what a "LTR3176" is, and you will NOT be
capable of explaining it adequately. This is an
subject area concerning which you should speak from
the heart, not the head.
If you haven't
yet begun to act, share the reasons for your decision to do so, and
Remember, your purpose is to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE
Watch your own video after you
record it and ask yourself: Putting yourself
in the place of someone completely immersed
in "the matrix"-- oblivious to any notions
that you might have been a victim of an
"ignorance tax", and comfortable with the
status quo-- would the video you just made
encourage you to push aside your comforting
illusions and learn the liberating truth? If
not, try again.
Identify yourself. Anonymity is for criminals and self-doubters, not
warriors. Naming yourself is a requirement, and your
name will appear as a subtitle on the video when I
prepare it for posting, in any event.
Mention what you do for a living, whether
you're a doctor, homemaker, lawyer, trucker, IT guy
or gal, retiree or student. Help people understand
that the company of grown-up activist Americans they
are being invited to join cuts across all demographics
and all interests-- with the common denominator being
respect for the law and love of the principles on which
this great country was founded.
This is your chance to get a LOT accomplished.
We've all had frustrating occasions of
trying to explain all this to a friend, neighbor, family
member or co-worker, only to pile up against the wall
of a mind not yet ready to listen and learn. Here is
your chance to address a self-selected audience of folks
who have themselves decided that it's time for them
to begin paying attention, and have clicked on your
testimonial for exactly that reason.
Further, think about this: You want judges,
bureaucrats, CPAs, lawyers, the HR people where you
work, your pastors, your neighbors and everyone else
to acknowledge the truth about the tax openly and straightforwardly.
How and why would these folks do this if YOU won't?
You want these folks to learn the truth.
Why would they even recognize that there is a truth
to be learned if you won't attest to having learned
it yourself? You've got to stand up, face forward and
chin up and tell these folks that you have studied and
checked and verified and seen the evidence and seen
the government evasions and you know that the tax is
not the capitation that the beneficiary government wants
everyone to think it is but a benign, strictly limited
thing, and that they need to study and learn that, too.
Again, if you have victories to show, that's
nice, and powerful, too. But you don't have to have
victories to display in order to declare your knowledge
of what the law says. I've never flown around the world,
but I've seen the evidence and considered the arguments,
and I'm not hesitant to declare it a sphere...
Even those of you who haven't yet studied
CtC have surely read
this short document, and have verified everything
in it for yourself. You should therefore be declaring
its veracity and its message, loud and proud. Again,
if you won't say it, how can you hope that others will
ever even bother to look at the facts?
Be the change you want to see in the world,
or there won't be any change.

Getting Free Of The "Income" Tax Scheme Is As Easy As
Falling Off A Bike
To get an idea of how today's "income" tax scheme works,
try this little exercise:
Think of the federal government as a guy named Bob,
who lives down the street from you in a town that is
really big on bicycles. Bikes get used for commuting,
deliveries, shopping, etc.. In fact, other than walking,
bicycles are the exclusive form of transportation in
Your neighbor Bob has a by-the-mile bicycle-renting
business-- "Bob's Bicycles". Bob's Bicycles is far and
away the biggest business in town.
Part of Bob’s success is because he does a lot of contract
business. However, Bob doesn't just get paid by riders
who have signed an agreement with him, or even just
those using Bob's bikes. Bob gets something every time
anybody in town does any riding at all, through an odd
combination of circumstances that took many years to
Here's how it happened...
Bob's Bicycles was launched long ago by the great grandfather
of the present Bob (Bob IV). Great Grandpa Bob started
out not only with a main location for his contract business--
he also had the bright idea of setting up spots around
town where he parked some of his bikes for use by the
more occasional rider, on an "honor system". Anyone
could take and use one of these bikes, but they were
expected to keep track of their mileage, and send Bob
a "1040 Mileage Ridden/Rent Due Form" (and the appropriate
rent), periodically. The initial design of the form
was like this:
rode a Bob's Bicycle a total of _____ miles
At Bob's rental
rate of $.15 per mile, I owe Bob $______
I said that Great Grandpa Bob planned to deal with these
occasional riders on the "honor system", and that's
true. But he liked his money, too, and didn't want to
miss anything that was due him. So, after setting up
the "self-serve" locations, Great Grandpa Bob went around
handing out "W-2, 1099 or K-1 Rider Reporting Forms"
to every other business in town. The forms-- accompanied
by notices that if Bob didn't get his rent from someone
riding a bicycle in connection with any business, he
would sue the company involved-- said:
You Can’t Fight Well When You Don’t Know
What You’re Fighting About
If you are having an argument
with the IRS or any other tax agency,
You are NOT being presumed to have made “corporate
You are NOT being alleged to have received “foreign
You are NOT entangled in an invisible “adhesion
You are NOT being obligated by a law whose subject
is never identified.
You are being targeted because REAL EVIDENCE exists
that YOU PERSONALLY HAD “INCOME” to which the revenue laws apply--
even though that evidence is almost certainly incorrect,
and CAN be corrected.

YOU Decide To "Let Someone Else Do It"?

I will do."

Doing A Little High-Payoff Math
IF EACH PERSON receiving this newsletter each week distributed as
few as 100 of any of
the great outreach tools featured here to co-workers, friends,
neighbors and family members (or just strangers on the street, in
the mall, etc...), we could have SEVERAL MILLION new Americans
suddenly introduced to the liberating truth about the tax!
Just like that! In one week!
C'mon, people, let's roll on this!
“Most of the important things in the
world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when
there seemed to be no hope at all.”
When directed to a page by topic or link, read everything.
I know that this can mean the investment of a lot of time, attention
and effort, but although some may imagine otherwise, I don't write
as much as I do because I can't think of any other way to spend
Furthermore, when you encounter a hyperlink within, or associated
with, the text you are reading, follow it!
It is pretty common these days for web-based material to be littered
with hyperlinks. Sometimes the purpose is to provide definitions
or examples, in order to ensure that folks reading the original
material aren't presented with a word or reference which they don't
understand. Sometimes the links lead to illustrations pertinent
to the original text.
It is common-- and perfectly understandable-- for folks who are
confident that they are familiar with language or references within
the main text they are reading to get in the habit of skipping over
included links. I do it all the time, myself!
However, I very rarely include links for definitional or explanatory
purposes; and when I DO make a link out of text in one page it is
generally to another self-contained page, rather than merely illustrative
material. These other pages contain material the clear understanding
of which I deem highly important for the proper and complete understanding
of the original page. (Links to
CtC Warriors and so on are obvious exceptions to this general
rule. On the other hand, a link to the victory
Highlights or 'Every
Which Way But Loose' pages, which might seem like such exceptions,
are not. The special selection of victories on those pages, and
the filed docs and tax-agency correspondences included therewith,
themselves constitute highly instructive material which merits careful
attention. Thus care needs to be taken in all cases.)
Please make a habit of clicking on all provided links and at least
looking briefly to ensure that the linked page is one with which
you are completely familiar from another study session.
Finally, please keep in mind that, annoying though it may seem at
first blush (but not, I trust, upon reflection), I constantly tweak
material already posted. Obviously this doesn't mean that every
page is in flux at all times, but it does mean that if you are directed
to a page that IS familiar, it's worthwhile to read it through again
if it's been a while since your last having done so.
December 7- In 1787, Delaware becomes the first of the several
states to ratify the United States Constitution. In 1917, power-hungry nutcases
running the United States, hating the thought of missing all the military action
going on 3000 miles away and
having arranged for a pretext, declare war on Austria-Hungary. In 1941,
power-hungry nutcases running the United States, hating the idea of missing all
the military action going on 3000 miles away, arrange for the bombing of the US
naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, by the Japanese as a pretext for entering
World War II. In 2005, distraught and unarmed passenger Rigoberto Alpizar is
shot and killed by federal "air marshals" in an otherwise empty jetway at Miami
International Airport. "Homeland Security" claims that Alpizar said something
about having a bomb in order to justify the murder. All independent witnesses
declare this allegation to be a lie.

resume investigation of corrupt behavior in that country by former Vice
President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Ironically, the investigation had
originally been halted when Biden, while Vice President, had demanded it--
on pain of withholding aid to the
same government of Ukraine.

thou follow with the crowd in doing wrong, or be swayed by many
