Rights now considered criminal violations

A 50-year-old man who told authorities he was fed up with teens toilet-papering his house decided to defend his property -- with a squirt gun filled with fox urine. Now, Scott Wagar is in trouble with the law.

According to police, Wagar was on his property Sept. 16 when he used night vision goggles to see 15-20 people running toward his place. He told police that he told them to leave, swore at them and sprayed them with the fox urine. He also allegedly struggled with one of the teens.


This is a non-incident. The authorities getting involved can only be bad: bunch of prankster punk teenagers who wouldn't leave this guy alone got what they deserved.

In an increasingly authoritative society, the citizens our founding fathers would have characterized as "innocent" in these cases, and justified in defending their land from unwelcome guests, become the criminals. Never mind the fact that we have a Constitution which is supposed to grant us basic rights of life, liberty, and property; a guy who would be so callous as to catch on to when these teenagers were arriving to vandalize his land and catch them off guard must be insane.

Say good-bye to your rights, if you were ever lucky enough to live in a time where you had any.

Whistleblowers in China seized, medicated

Sun Fawu, 57, a farmer seeking compensation for land spoiled by a coal mining operation, said he was seized by local authorities on his way to petition the central government in Beijing and taken to the Xintai Mental Health Center in October.

During a 20-day stay, he said, he was lashed to a bed, forced to take pills and given injections that made him numb and woozy. When he told the doctor he was a petitioner, not mentally ill, the doctor reportedly said, "I don't care if you're sick or not. As long as you are sent by the township government, I'll treat you as a mental patient."


By yesterday evening, the Xintai city government was rejecting The Beijing News report as reckless and slanted. In a telephone interview broadcast on Shandong provincial television, an unidentified municipal official suggested that those confined to the mental hospital had gone mad from their single-minded quest for justice.


Welcome to the future of the US.

When you consider that China has the highest federal trade surplus out of any nation in the world, and the US has the highest federal trade deficit of any nation in the world, it isn't that much of a stretch.

In Sun Fawu's case, the government polluted his land with coal refinement by-products and he was seeking compensation, much like someone in the US would do. Instead of hearing his argument in court, they threw him into a mental asylum; a cheap solution to the problem.

Globalism has taught us that we should not only do business with all trade partners possible (read: cheapest labor and goods available while governments collect higher taxes to invest in military presence) we should also inherit their problems because we're all one global community, which fuels the fire of neurotic morons looking to police "human rights" across the globe. This provides a great distraction for what's really happening in Europe and the US, where culture is being torn apart by a lack of direction in political leadership.

Instead of turning outward to China and reporting on their human rights violations, moaning about what a great country they would be if only they could just adopt the US Constitution (as if that would work, and as if it's any of our concern thousands of miles away), we should be turning inward to regain our local townships and cultures, and allow them to live according to values they select.

We've adopted a negative attitude toward life: we point out what foreign governments do NOT do, such as NOT allowing their people the same entitlements as we receive here in the US, but we fail to point out what it is we should be doing:
  • Stay out of the business of other countries
  • Build great, self-governing cultures which have better goals in mind than money (this would assume very little in the way of immigration)
  • Promote the idea of families spending time with each other more (less office work & business travel)
  • Insist on better leadership by voting in those who speak more to long-term planning than short-term band-aid solutions
  • Promote body and mind health (independent thinking; no fast food; more efficient work in less time)
  • Resist any attempt to centralize power in government
  • Reduce overall population so resources don't become scarce

This would be a start; we can only hope enough begin to resist the globalist charade and care for their own communities to implement these vital changes against an insane political system.

Financial centralization = financial slavery

One of my favorite new websites produced a great article on our current Fed system and why we should move away from it, giving a candid history behind the creation of the Fed.

Therefore, Congress unlawfully transferred its power to coin money to a privately owned bank, which now unlawfully prints or creates it. Now, when the government needs money, it prints Treasury Bonds and exchanges them for Federal Reserve Notes (US dollars), which are given to them by the Fed, a company whose only shareholders are other banks.

This means that in order to create money, government bonds, which are debt, must be created. This debt comes with an interest rate. Therefore, our government pays a private bank interest to create its own money. Yet more importantly, this means that any money created in our financial system is created from debt with interest tacked on. However, the Fed only prints the principal amount of the loan, not the interest needed to pay it off. So how is it possible to completely pay off all the debt in our financial system? Simply put, it isn’t. Every dollar you carry around actually is somebody else’s debt. You own nothing.

This blog has been inactive lately, for a few reasons: the holidays, being sick the last few days, and becoming a staff member at

Wait, what was that last thing again?

Editor Alex Birch has thought enough of my recent contributions to make me a staff member, the responsibilities of which consist mainly of writing blog posts. There's also a neat radio show/interview I did with respected emeritus professor Dr. Albert Bartlett (found at the link below). I wasn't thrilled with my journalistic capabilities in terms of on-the-fly reactions and follow up questions, but otherwise I think it turned out okay.

My blog posts on can be followed here:


This link only catches blog entries. For example, I also did a movie review for them recently, and that's in the Culture section. To follow all of my activity on the site, you can go here:


And look for where the "Author" column has my username.

I was thrilled that Alex asked me to become a staff member and only hope I can continue to contribute in a way which lends itself to the values of Corrupt.
