Herald Censorometer Reaches Danger Zone; Evacuations May be Needed

censorCensorship at the Herald has reached new and dangerous territory, as several people invited to write 500 word submissions have refused.   A large group of protesters have gathered at Herald headquarters, demanding the right to have material written on their behalf.  “The people at the Herald expect us to write their blog for them,” said one man, identified only as “Che the Liberator.”  “It’s exactly the sort of dirty trick we’ve been expecting.”

Meanwhile, while people are being censored, several seriously incorrect statements have been presented on the Herald.  There is serious danger, according to authorities, that the outer containment may be breached.

Observation drones are being sent in, but it is not clear when further information from the scene will be available.  Readers are advised to stay by their radios.

    Too funny – always good to keep the humor mixed in. Meanwhile, back at the ranch . . .
    Downey and Allman just joined Oath Keepers – which means, to me, that since Downey has (finally) decided to ‘Stand’ – the able bodied males (IMHO) should gather and have him train for a posse. That’s the whole idea , is that if/when the FEDS. and/or STATE enter the county that they come to him first or be arrested. A ‘well trained militia’ of locals is who he’s supposed to call on for assistance. An ‘outlaw’ is someone who refuses to be a part of the posse and come to the aid of the Sheriff. Would be as it should be. Richardson Grove is on the plate. The fact that we live in California, with allegiance to the state, we have protection from STATE attack. CA INC is bankrupt, and to my knowledge, it is not the will of the people to widen 101 there. Just sayin . . .

    More than 450 people have been injured and at least nine have been killed. Moltov cocktails, rocks, teargas and gun fire marked the second anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution. Troops have been deployed.

    We now seem to have reached the level of complexity on the planet where seven billion human cells, operating unconsciously, and using their energy at destructive cross-purposes, is no longer biologically functional.

    Any five-year old child knows that if you put ten marbles into a tin can, you can only take ten marbles back out. No amount of wishful thinking, dreaming, or praying, will yield that eleventh marble from inside the can. that eleventh marble does not exist. It never did, and it never will. All discussions about the eleventh marble are the product of imagination. The eleventh marble is a fantasy.

    Private central banksters issuing public money as interest-bearing loans operate on the belief that they can put ten marbles (dollars) into a tin can (the world) and magically get 11 marbles back out. Thus we may conclude that the banksters are dumber than five-year old children! But unlike children, the bankers will take your home, your business, and your country when they don’t get that eleventh marble! The spoiled child may cry and that would be the end. The spoiled banker, however, in his or her arrogant rage that they cannot have the eleventh marble, may start a war before they maybe admit that the eleventh marble was never really there.
    Nobody can give you a marble that does not exist, yet this simple reality is lost to priests of that fantastic religion called “economics” in the unholiest of temples called the Private Central Bank. That faith in the existence of the eleventh marble, unseen and improvable, is the article of faith the religion of banking rests on. It is far easier to burn the heretics than to question the dogma.
    The problem with all modern reserve banking systems is that the moment the first bank note goes into circulation as the proceed of a loan at interest, more money is owed to the banks than actually exists. Sooner or later the non-existence of that eleventh marble will create a crisis of faith. People will stop believing in the religion called Private Central Banking, and that crisis of faith will bring the system crashing down. The evil magic of creating money out of debt was a fraud all along, as fraudulent and silly as the idea that one can put ten marbles into a tin can, and take out eleven.
    Interest Bearing Debt As The Model For A Money System Grows The Total Debt In An
    Exponential Manner.
    The debt created by usury based sovereign debt is perpetual; it can never be paid off. The contract cannot be culminated. Any contract that can not be culminated is an act of fraud. A contract based upon fraud is invalid from its inception. It would appear that U.S. INC’S debt is not legally enforceable. Or mortgages, student loans, vehicle loans etc.

    So wait, the Chinese have control of Long Beach port (commerce), due to U.S. INC’S debt owed they’re in every State – businesses, roads, infrastructure, housing – The District of Criminals entities ought to be doing that little dance that’s done at the end of a common law rope.

    The problem with Forest Queen’s “ten marbles in a tin can will never become eleven marbles” analogy is that economics in general, and reponsible lending/borrowing isn’t just a matter of putting marbles in a tin can and then trying to get more of them back out. If the borrowed money is put to a productive use, then new wealth can be created (additional “marbles created), and therefore there are, indeed, more “marbles” to take out later to re-pay the loan and the interest. In other words, economic activity isn’t a “zero-sum game.” Please note, of course, that this only applies to responsible lending/borrowing, where the borrowed funds are put to some kind of productive use.

    That Other Anonymous,
    Open your ‘other’ eye. You missed the point – somehow. Back to square one: the word (i)nterest is a negative state of condition. Why? because the interest part of the equation is never made into 3D material form. ALL funny money enters into circulation as debt -Congress borrows from FRB – plus the illusionary ‘interest.’ The Federal Reserve Banks produce nothing of value, yet for 99 years the people haven been tricked by black-magic word spells, and have accepted nothing for something – our energy.

    No, Forest Queen, I don’t think I missed your point, I think you missed mine. The Federal Reserve Bank, and banks in general, don’t “produce” anything directly, but by making funds available for borrowing, this allows others to produce new wealth, in the form of useful goods and services. The ongoing production of new wealth is what makes the ongoing production of (a certain amount) of new currency sustainable. So the problem is not the creation of currency itself, what’s problemmatic is when this currency is created and loaned out for non-productive purposes. When that happens, then they’ve created new currency, but not new wealth — and when the amount of wealth (goods and services) remains the same while at the same time the amount of currency in circulaton increases, then what you get is inflation — each dollar is worth less, because there are more of them chasing the same goods and services. So I share your concern about the Federal Reerve, and banks in general, but perhaps for a somewhat different reason.

    Forest Queen: Again, I am no fan of the Federal Reserve Bank. My point was that loaning and borrowing CAN help people create wealth (real useful goods and services), IF the borrowed funds are used for a productive purpose. All too often they are not. This was in response to your “marbles in a tin can” analogy which I interpreted as you claiming that borrowing and lending was always a zero-sum game — because of the statement that the ten marbles will always be ten marbles and when you go back to the tin can to repay eleven marbles (the ten borrowed marbles, plus the one marble as interest) there won’t be enough to repay the debt. This is true if the borrowed funds have been squandered on non-productive uses, but if they’ve been used for something productive, then that productivity means that borrowing the ten marbles has allowed you to produce an eleventh marble (enough to pay the interest), or even a twelfth marble (in which case you’ve made a profit). If claiming that lending and borrowing is always a zero-sum game was not what you were trying to get across, then my critique does not apply. But also if that was not what you were trying to get across then you might want to choose a different analogy, because in my opinion the “marbles in a tin can” analogy does very strongly imply a zero-sum assumption.

    As far as the Federal Reserve, I don’t like the fact that the government has made itself dependent on a privately held banking institution over which the voters have very little influence, and I don’t like the way they have used their power to make sure unemployment doesn’t get “too low” (read “Secrets of the Temple” by William Grieder) because of a desire to maintain a large reserve pool of unemployed and underemployed workers in order to keep pressure on employed workers to accept low wages and not press for better pay. The Fed supposedly works to keep inflation low, but in reality their emphasis seems to be on preventing so-called “wage inflation” (which most of us would call “workers getting ahead, at least a little, or at least keeping up with inflation in the price of goods and services”). So I would be happy to see the Federal Reserve either eliminated or fundamentally restructured so that it better serves the needs of working people, rather than Wall Street investors and captains of industry.

    Iceland President: Let the Banks go bankrupt . . .”Why do we consider banks . . holy churches?” Iceland’s President Olafur Ragnar Grimson asks (and answers) in this truly epic three minutes of truthiness from the farce that is the World Economic Forum in Davos. He explains why his nation is growing strongly, why unemployment is negligible, and how they moved from the world’s poster-child for banking crisis 5 years ago to a thriving nation once again. Simply put, he says, “we didn’t follow the prevailing orthodoxies of the last 30 years in the Western world.”

To big to fail? They are fleeing like rats on a ship. With no foundation (of truth) the illusion is falling like a house of cards built on sand.

This is why/how I travel on the ‘freeways’ (2 years now) without a corpse (corporation) D/L, Registration and insurance. I’m simply not worth the trouble of being motioned roadside since I do not have any contracts with CA INC. I’m not in their pretend jurisdiction, so they can’t force their commercial process on me. Juris -oath, diction – to speak. No one else can speak for me – hence, my plates on my truck that I own (not just ‘equity’ title) read: No Exp. California in red, and Sui Juris in blue. Sui Juris means, in my own jurisdiction. It allows you to speak your truth in a court of law.

    No, I’m advocating not believing that there is any such thing as an “unsinkable ship” (or a too-big-to-fail bank), and therefore taking great care not to run into icebergs in the first place. Meanwhile, you seem to think anything less than rejecting very concept of oceanic ships is some kind of cop-out. O.K., fine, have at it. As long as you never want to cross an ocean, that should work out fine for you. But otherwise, it’s a mighty long swim.

    EXCUSE ME HERE!!! I’m just trying to save the world

    Unconstitutional Official Acts 16 Am Jur 2d Sec 177 late 2d, Sec. 256 The general misconceptions that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law, constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute to be valid, must be in agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it, to be valid -one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows: The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose, since unconstitutionality
    dates from the time of it’s enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would had the statute not been enacted. Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, it is very clear that those who present Un-Constitutional laws do not hold up to the very Constitution they swore an oath to support and defend. In doing so, all those who take a stand counter to the Constitution are people committing treason and making laws that cannot be upheld because they are unconstitutional. This must stop, and these people must be held accountable for what they have done. May we see how much we are the same, instead of our insignificant differences – roll up our sleeves, and do what we came here to do – before it’s too late.

    JW,
    As I’ve stated before, I don’t live in the ‘what-if.’ I don’t “cause accidents.” As I’ve stated before, there are no (a)ccidents. You didn’t answer my question – what is your concern?
    (I)nsurance is based on fear/negative. My house might burn down. Death -I might die (someday). Someone may run into my car. Oooo scary. Insurance is a third-party interloper/middle-man, because people aren’t responsible for themselves. In the extremely unlikely event that I harmed someone enough to be hospitilized – I’d A4V the ‘bill.’ Accept for value. Endorse it, and return it to the hospital for processing. Same with utility ‘bills’ or anything else that is addressed to the strawman ALL CAPS NAME. There are many nuances to use and different cards to play in the commercial game. I am not the ALL CAPS NAME. Could also return it to sender unopened, write on the back Return for Fraud, No PERSON at that address with that NAME. Then telephone the utility corp. and tell them that I’d be glad to pay any debt that I may owe upon evidence/proof of the claim. Send me a bill with my name spelled correctly, and I’ll pay it. Never happens. For the same reason John Barthalemew has no legal capacity to force commercial property tax on me (or anyone). I have asked him more than once to send me a contract with his signature on it – he can’t, corporations do not have hands. A contract must have two signatures, capacity, consideration, and a lawful object to be valid and adjudicated in a court of law. Since he can’t produce a bonifide claim/evidence to me, the living, breathing soul – then, sorry for his luck. He’s actually a rather pleasant man. We’ve had many conversations and exchanged letters over the years. If this wasn’t true, then I’d be on the list of properties being sold for delinquent taxes. Seven years so far. As well, Humboldt INC. has in their governing codes that they will not sell tax delinquent properties unless the County is in dire straits. It’s nothing personal – just commerce.
    I don’t do commerce. I don’t drive a bus or a taxi for profit using the roadways. Contracts are common law – private – courts cannot intercede in your private business. Commerce is the public side of the (trust) account. The only thing happening in court is the ‘charging’ of the ALL CAPS NAME Trust Account. Did you grant authority to any one to administer the ALL CAPS NAME account? Can the court or persecutor provide evidence? – No. Is THE NAME licensed in this State to do business? (Neither is IRS). The fact that there are bid bonds, performance bonds, jail/prison bonds issued, proves that it’s just commerce – nothing to do with crime. Crime is harm to another, rape, or theft/destruction of personal property. Public Safety is the #1 law, worldwide. So disturbing the public peace, witnessed by an officer, does not require a 4th Amendment warrant. All other arrests do.

    I MEAN, we’re at 59% taxes, no matter what the label is – income, permit, license, fees, registration, court costs etc. Was there not a revolution over a 2% tea tax? Whatever would the Founders think of us today? The only tax mentioned in the Constitution is Excise tax.

    To Welfare (formerly Forest) Queen….My concern is for the law abiding people you put in danger every time you get behind the wheel. You live in a make believe world where you “don’t cause accidents”, but other people do, and you find that “Oooo scary”. You talk in terms that only you understand, What is “A4V”? Sounds like you’d just laugh off someone elses misery and leave them to pay for your irresponsibility. You aptly described yourself when you said : “because people aren’t responsible for themselves”. You also nailed it with: “Crime is harm to another, rape, or theft/destruction of personal property”. Keep talking you ALL CAPS crap and other looney thoughts, it doesn’t cover that fact that you’re a pitiful excuse for a human being.

    Hopefully she’ll have a chance to explain her beliefs of personal sovereignty to the CHP before she cripples or kills someone and leaves their family destitute, at which point she would say they must be lying because it makes her unhappy when people tell her she has any responsibility for the damages she inflicts. She is the most delusional and likely dishonest person I’ve ever encountered. Claiming she gets away without paying property taxes because there is no signed contract between her and Bartholomew is a new one. Anyone who believes her BS should have a caretaker.

    Excerp about Herbert Spencer from the link: “Spencer adapted Charles Darwin’s notion of natural selection and applied the theory to human society in a philosophy that became known as “Social Darwinism.” It was Spencer who coined the term “survival of the fittest,” using it to apply to the fate of rich and poor in a laissez faire capitalist society. Spencer argued that there was nothing unnatural — and therefore wrong — with competing and then rising to the top in a cut- throat capitalist world.”
    Finally, Welfare Queen quotes someone worth listening to !

    JW,

    There have been a few sophisticated and coherent comments from FQ. I’m not just saying s/he’s said things I agree with; I’m saying that the tone was completely different, the IQ was higher, the emotional level more mature, the vocabulary better. So, at the very least, there have been multiple people using the pseudonym. I think FQ is probably the same crew behind the old “suzy blah blah” pseudonym, but it doesn’t keep me up nights.

    I guess it’s possible it’s one person who very rarely comes down, but I think it’s more likely it’s multiple people.

    As long as I’m yapping here again — breaking my promise to myself, which suggests maybe I need an intervention — let me add that there’s no good political label I’m aware of for many of the so-called leftists here. As far as I can tell, they’ve merged with the nutcase right in opposition to any attempt at civilization. It doesn’t strike me as a political thing at all; I’m not sure how I’d characterize it. Rebellion for absurdity’s sake? Dada uber alles? Serious mental illness or overexposure to brain-damaging drugs? Hard to say.

    She also plans on employing another bit of pseudolegal woo: Writing “Accepted for Value” on the bill, and returning it to the sender. This particular pseudolegalistic incantation is popular among the so-called “Freeman” and the “Sovereign Citizen” kooks:

    Freemen claim the government secures the value of its fiat currency using its own citizens’ birth certificate “bonds.” It is claimed that the value of an individual’s “bond” may reach into the millions…freemen believe that one can access the money represented by one’s own “bond” though various pseudolegal methods and by filing forms with government agencies. There are plenty of conmen, fraudsters and snake-oil salesmen selling methods on how to achieve this to gullible fools. Naturally, none have ever been shown to work.

    The value of one’s birth certificate “bond” can also supposedly be used to discharge one’s debts and financial liabilities through a process known as “acceptance for value” or “A4V”, without the freeman having to gain direct access to the funds himself.

    http://www.splcenter.org/get-informed/intelligence-report/browse-all-issues/2002/winter/beyond-redemption?page=0,0

    This report from the Southern Poverty Law Center delves into this in even greater detail, including a fascinating bit about the scammers who sell expensive courses, consultations, books, videos and audiocassettes, all purporting to teach people how to charge all your bills and taxes to your “ALL CAPS NAME” legal/financial doppelganger, for whom the federal government helpfully put $600,000+ in a secret Treasury account on the day your “ALL CAPS NAME” doppelganger was created — and also how to use home-made checks to access those free funds to get cash or buy a car or a house or whatever.

    And amazingly they’ve found thousands (maybe even tens of thousands) of people willing to pony up hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars to learn these “secret methods” of financial liberation, debt elimination and personal enrichment, despite the fact that no one can point to even a single example where any of these gambits have actually been successful in a court of law — and despite the many examples of both the paid “redemption” gurus, and their slow-witted followers being convicted and jailed for fraud and tax evasion after their superficially legalistic-sounding but actually legally worthless arguments were promptly laughed out of court.

    Which I guess goes to show that not only is there a sucker born every day, at least every few days there is a sucker born who is actually so laughably gullible and tragically dull-witted that he or she can later be convinced that way back on the day they were born, the federal government created an ALL CAPS doppelganger of them, and deposited $600,000+ in a secret Treasury account under their name.

    Good point Mitch. Studies have shown that “female” bloggers are viciously attacked far more than “male” bloggers. I’ve suspected that “Heraldo” is a woman due to “his” sensitivity to this misogyny, not to say that all men are unaware of course. There are lots of women who bash women and defer to men to curry favor as well.

    “A 2006 University of Maryland study on chat rooms found that female participants received 25 times as many sexually explicit and malicious messages as males. A 2005 study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that the proportion of Internet users who took part in chats and discussion groups plunged from 28 percent in 2000 to 17 percent in 2005, entirely because of the exodus of women. The study attributed the trend to “sensitivity to worrisome behavior in chat rooms.”Women are harassed in a particular way — it’s about what you look like, and what’s between your legs. Feminist bloggers in particular seem to garner attention for their physical appearance. Either we’re too ugly to get a man and so we turn to feminism (and cats), or we’re too pretty to be taken seriously. Often it’s some combination of both.”

    Mitch,

    I had one more comment immediately before #70, which appeared when posted, but then disappeared. I don’t think there was anything abusive or offensive about it, but maybe it ended up in the Spam folder just because I posted 3 in a row after that? The subject was about the “Strawman” gambit.

    Not really important, but I’m just wondering if there’s some automatic limit to 3 comments in a row, where any immediately-previous comments automatically get dumped? If so, it would be good to know for future reference, that’s all. Thanks.

    Anon,

    I’m not aware of any 3-comments-then-spam policy in wordpress, but I’m hardly an expert.

    Dear Herald readers,

    You may notice that things are now officially posted by Eric Kirk and “Mitch, etc…” I’ve enlisted a kind and help-offering person to assist in wading through the flotsam, saving any pearls of wisdom and dumping what they please. They are also soliciting posts, I believe, from people they respect. I haven’t deleted anything today. The kind and help-offering person will respond if they care to.

    I recognize that the Herald badly needs aggressive comments moderation. But I’m cooked, and wordpress issues related to who controls what make it impossible for me to simply redirect my favorites to the trash. I think any attempt to engage in intelligent discussion at this or any blog is doomed unless it is aggressively moderated, but to be an aggressive moderator you have to have a different, perhaps better, personality than I’ve got.

    One of my favorite “Star Trek” moments was the scene in which the Enterprise rescued a 20th century businessman who’d been conveniently flash frozen. The ship had been designed under 23rd century assumptions, and so there was apparently no way to keep him from using all the comm systems, and he kept annoying everyone else on board, because his 20th century mentality left him thinking himself entitled to do absolutely anything he could, and to push any button he wanted.

    Best wishes, good luck, and a special note to NaN — I’m still here, darlin’.
