“Legalman” has been a lawyer for over 30 years and is the host of The Quash podcast.

Pete initially invited Legalman to come on to do an episode where he shares some of the insights he’s talked about on his podcast in relation to the powerlessness of the Constitution but they start of with Legalman commenting on the attempted kidnapping off the Michigan governor. Legalman has read the arrest affidavit and has strong feelings about the information contained within. They finish off with Legal man giving his opinion on how the CV19 vaccine will be administered and it isn’t a pretty picture.

Let’s Talk About Potential Gun Issues

Let’s Talk About Potential Gun Issues

As I’m typing this it looks to me like Joe Biden is going to take this thing (if I’m wrong, I’ll be first to admit it). A common worry among libertarians/anarchists and even conservatives is that Biden is going to do an executive order (XO) of some sort resulting in some gun restrictions., even confiscation.

My first impulse is to remind everyone that the same fear was felt under Obama – especially after the Sandy Hook tragedy – but I understand that this is 4 years later. The problem with that line of thinking is that the Republican president for the last 4 years actually put through some restrictions on firearms related items and hinted at gun control in “dire” circumstances and was cheered on by his acolytes on the Right. But Biden isn’t on the Right.

My advice to the gun-owners out there is to hold onto your weapons. Prices will immediately skyrocket with Biden as president-elect but don’t sell unless you have an emergency. Even if Biden were to sign an XO, the Republican governors loyal to Trump will resist IMO, unless they are bought and sold by the “Great Reset” crowd. I still don’t see them rounding anything up using force. They may try a “mandatory buyback” but all you have to do is look to New Zealand to see that doesn’t go well in the present. Hell, even Connecticut didn’t get close to half when they passed a state law and when New Jersey ordered bump-stocks turned in a few years ago none were surrendered.

Ride this out. If you’re in an area where they know what you have, get a 3D printer and CNC mill. They’re getting easier to make at home.

If Biden wins this there will be the kind of vitriol towards him the Right had for Obama. Maybe even more considering many people on the Right I’m sure held back for not wanting to be deemed racist. IMO, Trump has removed that concern even if we see a sudden Harris presidency.

I am in no way worried that anyone is coming for my guns and I have a few along with accessories that the Feds know about. I believe that if it gets to the point where they come to take them, anything they have planned for us after that will justify using them. I don’t see us being there in the near future but I’m often wrong in my predictions.

I happen to agree with Monica Perez that if that day comes when they come for them, a Republican will be in office. Relax, breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth, and watch how things unfold. It just may be that Federalism will be a major factor in the Age of Biden. If that is in fact where we are.

Let’s Talk About Potential Gun Issues

Boarding Up For Safety In The ‘Land Of The Free!’

It’s telling that we have reached a point where only hyper-partisans are speaking up and attempting to make a “big deal” out of the fact that an election is happening and businesses are boarding their windows and doors in areas where a sizable portion of the population resides. Think about that; tomorrow an event is taking place that we were brainwashed in government schools to believe makes us more special than any other people in the world. And the only people talking about it are ones who want to rally people to their personal cause. As Hotep Jesus says, “It’s grifter season!”

You’ll have to scour the internet to find articles – mostly on smaller blogs – that may actually make the point that this isn’t what was sold to us; that this isn’t the legacy we were promised. But, as Vin Armani pointed out way back at the beginning of all of this, “People believe that they’re entitled to the liberties of the Declaration and the Bill of Rights but they didn’t put themselves at risk. How long did they think they were going to benefit from someone else’s hard work?” Now, many of us know that those promises are bunk but the reason to bring them up is that the overwhelming majority of the people believe them. But they have abandoned even considering those principles.

I hope that anyone reading this has already come to the conclusion that what we are seeing (leaving Covid out of this); riots, radical cultural divisions, “this is the most important election of our lifetime;” that these things are not going away. The riots strengthen the political class. The cultural divisions have been here since the founding. And it’s always the most important election.

If these issues are things that consume your thought, that you’re someone who wonders what the culture will look like even 5 years from now, I hope you have at least reached the “acceptance” stage of “grief,” and like myself, are constantly looking for ways to navigate it. It appears to me that taking care of self and family first, and then looking for like-minded, local individuals, to partner with is a smart way forward.

I don’t know how to talk to the person who believes this will go back to whatever they think “normal” was. Again, that points to the individual.

The ‘Private’ Dilemma

The ‘Private’ Dilemma

There is an issue that “Libertarianism” refuses to take a nuanced approach to that will inevitably further marginalize it in the eyes of the general public. When it is brought up the “consistent” libertarian/anarchist retreats into the world of informal fallacies, most notably the “false dilemma” fallacy, in which it is assumed by the participant that there are only two opinions to hold on the presented subject. This is usually characterized by canned answers such as, “they’re a private company bro, they can do what they want,” when a company is allegedly acting on its own accord, and in one example, temporarily bans the nation’s oldest newspaper from their platform.  

When people such as this author presents evidence that a certain platform will delete accounts on the orders of the American and Israeli governments, they are met with the same vapid response about private companies, yadda, yadda, yadda. In the mind of some who claim to be all about private property, but also preach an anti-State message, it becomes clear they haven’t given consideration to the fact that government actors (GAs) have planned out these schemes with the express intent of making it so that the libertarian/free market type is forced into a corner of not wanting to abandon their principles while GAs construct a system of tyranny around them that they refuse to criticize. 

What is even more maddening is that when someone tries to sound the alarm on this loophole the GAs have found, many are met with the insane response that they want the government to do something about it so that makes them statists. Did you hear what they said? The government is the one using this to their advantage. Can thought lacking nuance be abandoned for five seconds so that a third way can possibly be found besides the two that have been defaulted to?  

How about loudly speaking out against this arrangement (GAs)? Unfortunately, many are not only so steeped in one mode of thinking when it comes to that “private company bro,” but they also may not want to be seen as being “anti-business” like their blood-enemies the socialists. Where is that going to leave you? Technically, the monopoly power provider in a certain neighborhood may decide they don’t want to do business with the local “white supremacist” (whatever that means anymore). If they turn their power off in 100-degree heat is it just a “private company bro?”  

Libertarian/ANCAPS need to address this exploding phenomenon of government using “private” companies as a shield to carry out their war on everything from free speech to mask enforcement. At present, the Right is ramping up efforts to repeal Section 230 which would effectively allow the government to regulate social media platforms, or any contribution sites, as if they’re the public square. This author sees the government as the problem in almost all instances and never the solution. That does not mean these “private” companies should be let off the hook for their collusion. On the contrary, everyone needs to start calling them out on it. That would be a good start for the “libertarian.”
