    Central banking is Marxism in drag. The entire world economy is practically socialist, with the exception of some local economies in US red states, and very large-cap industries in the Russosphere where the tragic lessons of communism have finally been learnt at the cost of countless millions murdered, starved or otherwise killed. We are in for a very rough ride in the near future. The apologists for the status quo always try to "asterisk" everything, as though everyone who lived before they were born was just being over-confident whenever they spoke. Somehow, the apologists themselves are the exception to this, and their pronouncements that Mises/et. al. "got a few things wrong" is not itself an example of baseless confidence. It's a trick I'm running into more and more online in the last couple years, it seems to be saturating the entire Internet. These people are self-appointed experts in the exceptions that supposedly disprove the rule. This kind of acid-etch pedantry eventually corrodes away all possibility of communication because it is impossible to make any sort of claim whatsoever without somebody piping up with a supposed "exception". Note how this is isomorphic to gender-theory -- any form of generalization about gender is ipso facto invalid and any attempt at communication on the subject becomes drowned in a cacophony of "exceptions". The end-result is that communication, as such, becomes completely impossible, and we are all locked into some kind of weird, non-verbal game of social posturing. Aka Clown World. But Mises wrote about this, too: The Revolt Against Reason.

    I appreciate the in depth reply, thanks, and no, I didn't ignore your previous response, it was because of that that I asked specifically, which way the black church and the community were seeing this. Experimental "vaccines" that have now proved to be both ineffective and unsafe. "Freaked out"...interesting choice of words. They wanted to put us in prison camps.

    LOL. You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Anti Federalist again. Thanks for the compliment! I know PAF isn't a fan of Tim Scott. He also knows RFK JR has his issues. But this is what I think everyone should be able to agree on. The spectacle of what might be the 2024 presidential / vice presidential debates is really what's important IMO. I want RFK JR on the stage with Trump and Biden spitting facts at both of them on the full extent of vaccine injuries and, the fact that natural immunity was ignored and the fact that the lockdowns did more harm than good. I want Tim Scott faced off against Kamala Harris for her to explain why she filibustered the only police reform bill that had any chance of passage rather than offering amendments to improve it. I'd love to see Cornel West and whoever the libertarian presidential candidate ends up being (have they decided yet?) to question everybody else as to why supporting a genocidal maniac like Netanyahu who helped fund Hamas in the first place is in the interest of the American people. Take a little bit of everybody I mentioned, discard the bad parts, and you basically have Ron/Rand Paul. But neither of them are running this year. :(

    A big reason why silver is so embedded in finance is because its value has stayed pretty darned steady -- over millenia. Few have gotten rich on it without owning mineral rights to sources of it. Bern's little short and painless article he linked to above details how there may well be a silver bubble forming. They're rare. I remember one in the 1970s, and again in 2008. Both were predicated on its superiority to what the Fed does to us. Those were nice for the people who bought low and knew when to sell. But silver's normally no "investment". It rarely "performs", and when it does, if you want to realize gains you had better know when to get out. It's a hedge against the day when people will need a decentralized means of exchange, or rather, that need becomes so acute we stand up and do something about it. And only then, if and when the day comes, will long-term demand for it grow enough to raise its value permanently. There's a situation developing, however, which could cause a big silver bubble which is pretty much unrelated to its value as a hedge. What comes of it no one can know. But the situation is, to the best of my knowledge, unprecedented where silver is concerned. To predict what could happen here, one needs to examine other things which were oversold by people trying to short-sell it. It could therefore behave less like gold for a time and more like GameStop stock.

    Short answer is that I don't think many black people in general ever supported sexualization of children, but it's taking a while for black Christians to wake up to what's going on because of their undying love for Obama and/or dislike of Trump and Republicans Here's the long answer: I'll try to find the statistic, but prior to Obama being president a solid majority of African Americans were against gay marriage, more so than whites, and that flipped after Obama changed his views on gay marriage. It's really a mixed bag. In 2007 Obama was criticized by gays for having gospel singer and minister Donnie McClurkin associated with his campaign. Donnie is known for his ministry to gay people who wish to leave that lifestyle. That's something Donnie himself had to struggle with because he was molested as a child. I can't find the video, but I remember seeing Donnie explain to gospel artist Yolanda Adams that he agreed with Obama changing gay marriage as a "civil rights issue" but he (Donnie) maintained his same position that it wasn't right in the eyes of God. And how did Obama award him for this? Well....Donnie was dis-invited from singing at the 50th anniversary of the MLK March On Washington. At that same event Baynard Rustin, an openly gay lieutenant of MLK who's largely credited with Dr. King adopting a 100% non violent stance in the Civil Rights Movement (before Rustin, Dr. King had armed deacons for security guards and one could argue that Rustin got king killed), was honored for his role in the Civil Rights Movement.

    Innovation comes from the bottom up. MAGA is therefore fundamentally flawed at its very heart. Government has never made America great, cannot make America great, and will never make it great again. Is Cuba great? These hand-wringers run around screeching that America can't compete with Chinese slave labor, but why aren't they willing to give it a go? They have no faith in freedom. The South lost the war because it had never been able to compete with the North. Which one had slavery? Britain ruled the world for a century after abolishing slavery. We competed the USSR into the dustbin of history when we were about as free as anyone has been in the industrial age. They can see the "advantage" of slave labor but don't see the costs associated with keeping them on the plantation. They don't seem to have the eyes and the imagination to see the advantages of freedom and the innovation it fosters. They don't see that while the South was busy maintaining slavery, the free people of the North were inventing more perfect slaves -- machinery. Just to offer one example. Republicans mutter, there oughta be a law. The difference between the majority of Republicans and libertarians is that libertarians have faith in freedom. It isn't something we just pay lip service to. We know in our hearts that, on a macro level, it works best. And do you know what? That's the difference between libertarians and liberals, too. Then neither of them can begin to understand the mind-bending concept that they have more in common with each other than either has with us. It's going to be Republicans who ultimately throw the Constitution in the trash. Wait and see.

    jmdrake In your experience, is this now a majority, or even a growing, opinion in the black community or black churches?

The law signed by Gov.

    He certainly has. This whole psyop has been rife with it on both sides. The entire Democratic Party hasn't been able to find a better candidate for the last six years than a crooked child molester? Really? Did the whole Covid/Jab operation smell like an intelligence test to you? And yet, quite a few not-so-bright people didn't fall for it, and many bright people did. It was almost like it was designed to target those who didn't have both principle and courage. It's like it isn't enough that they kill half of us and enslave the rest. It smells like the deal they made with the devil is, they're tasked with making everyone hypocrites as well. Creating a harvest for the devil to claim on the Day of Reckoning. Unrelated to the thread but totally pertinent to that thought...

    With the possible exception of Canada and Mexico, and certain things like software, foreign production requires significant additional transportation costs. If you want to find a reason why that cost isn't prohibitive, you can buy a clue at your local OSHA office. Once again, you're demanding draconian top-down policies as band aids to staunch the bleeding caused by other draconian top-down policies.

    Yeah....that doesn't make sense either. Why would Trump do that? There is far more risk than reward in doing that. In fact I can't think of any reward. He could have slipped in a "mass deportation" headline, gotten the same boost from anyone that might have a positive reaction to the thought of a new "Reich" without any of the negative baggage. If Trump was aware of "Reich" contents of the ad, that fits into the "self sabotage" theory that I have. Nobody, not dannno nor Swordsmyth, can come up with an explanation of why Trump did an interview with Bob Woodward prior to the 2020 election. Woodward took down Nixon. Why would Trump even talk to that man, let alone tell him that he (Trump) knew in February 2020 that COVID would be bad but he didn't want people to "panic." Now in February 2020, Dr. Fauci wrote in Nature that COVID wouldn't be any worse than the seasonal flu. The smart thing would be to not talk to Bob Woodward at all, but if you were going to talk to him, shift any blame for a "slow response" to Fauci's article. Sometimes Trump says and/or does things that are needlessly counter protective that make me ask "Does he REALLY want to be president?" But in this case, sabotage by some plant is as reasonable as self sabotage. But Trump has clearly done some self sabotage.

    I wrote this on the blockchain blogging platform https://hive.io. It was forked from Steemit after Steem got taken over by a Chinese investor. I got the information from Anti Federalist's latest Harvard poll. If you sign up for a free Hive account and you upvote my article we both can earn a small amount of the Hive coin which can be swapped for Bitcoin or Ethereum or any other cryptocurrency. https://ecency.com/usa/@jmdrake1968/the-current-most-favorable-u I've also published the same story on Medium.com. (Yes I can get paid for that too). https://medium.com/@jmdrakelaw/the-current-most-favorable-u-s-political-figures-rfk-jr-elon-musk-and-tim-scott-3b4c5590cd71 I was going through the latest Harvard Harris poll, which currently shows Donald Trump up 6 points in the U.S. election, and I found something interesting. On page 15 there is a poll net favorability of political figures. I'm not sure why Elon Musk was included as a political figure as he isn't running for anything (excluding the poll he did on X regarding whether on not he should remain CEO...which he lost). But based on the poll he has a net favorability of 13%, and RKF Jr and Tim Scott have net favorbility ratings of 10%. Donald Trump currently has a net favorability rating of 4% and Joe Biden is at -10%.

    "...only reasonable alternative..." Your blind faith is showing. I thought you were a Christian. Somebody thought only their dogs would catch their dog whistle. Reasonable isn't a good word for it, no, but more than possible describes it well. Someone created the imagery. Tell us how it gets modified by some random staffer undetected and comes out looking perfect. Only reasonable alternative. If only every jury applied "beyond a reasonable doubt" the way you apply it to Trump we wouldn't have the highest percentage of our population in prison. Might not have prisons at all.

    I just started looking at the Constitution Party platform since you recommended it awhile back. There are some good things in it, but there are also some concessions to statism that I think are dangerous despite the fact that I'm moving away from strict anarcho-capitalist libertarianism. They support regulation of "obscenity", which isn't really defined, they support some drug restrictions, and they are careful to show their respect for agents of our currently illegitimate state (veterans), as well as condemning attempts to cut their benefits despite the fact that they are paid out of our pockets and for participating in unjust wars for an unjust system.

    The Constitution Party isn't all bad, and I might support some of their candidates, but I don't think there is any party I can support on principle (LP is pro-choice so not an option) I respect strict theonomy even though I'm not sure I agree with it yet. I don't think anybody believes what I'm starting to believe these days.

    OK, so my question is, with relations to Galatians, how is it that you can call Roman Catholics on this board "brothers" even though they add works to the gospel just like the Judaizers did? How is adding baptism as a requirement in order to be saved any different than adding circumcision as a requirement?
