necessary first to eliminate knowledge
of weapons, and to eliminate knowledge
of weapons, it is ultimately necessary
to eliminate all knowledge of any kind.

Letter To Matilda
by L. Neil Smith
The concept of an absolute human right to freedom of expression is
not uniquely American. It was born in the English-speaking world sometime between Magna
Carta and the Declaration of Independence, and all English-speaking countries—Great
Britain, the United States, Canada, New Zealamd, and Australia, among others, are heirs to it.

Should we allow Syrian (and other Sandbox) refugees
into these United States? Only conditionally. Christians, Jews,Yazidis,
Bahá'ís, Sikhs, Buddhists, Hindus—no problem, no limits. C'mon in, y'all!
4th Turning: The Halfway Mark
by Jeff Fullerton
In Paris a couple weeks ago the wolves had a field day in the Sheeple
pen. That was the impression I got from the audio clips on Quinn one morning. The screams
of helpless people being slaughtered by terrorists. That in itself ought to be a wake up
call and in many ways it is. The French have mostly brought this problem upon themselves
via government sponsored immigration which amounts to the importation of Third World
populations into first world countries for what amounts to the farming of chaos and social
problems of which they are now reaping a bountiful harvest. Much to the detriment of the
people and those currently in power are running damage control and bracing for the backlash.
France has suddenly closed its borders and is now alongside Russia bombing ISIS. But it is
unlikely the French government will allow their people to have guns.
Paris Terror Not Funded by Bitcoin
by Jim Davidson
Earlier this week, Bruno Delpeuc'h (his last name is said "Dell-peck")
joined the Digital Cash Alliance advisory board. You can read more about him on the Alliance
web site, or at his IndieGoGo profile. Almost immediately, French high technology journalist
Matthieu Delacharlery of Metronews contacted Bruno about the topic of ISIS/Daesh using Bitcoin
to finance terrorism."To his credit, Matthieu's questions are open-minded on the topic. "Here
are those questions as received by Bruno....
World's Shortest Political Essay
by L. Neil Smith
As you listen to this year's ridiculous collection of Republican
would-be Presidents, ask yourself a question: has a single one of them offered to repeal
any of the laws and decrees Obama is responsible for? Has any one of them promised to
cast off any of the power he has accrued?
Thanksgiving to Whom?
A Note from the Publisher
Last Thursday was Thanksgiving, a holiday, it seems to me, that
is always being celebrated on account of the wrong people and for the
wrong reasons. The national day of thanks was decreed by the maniacal
mass-murderer Abraham Lincoln, who was more than willing to see
620,000 individuals killed in order to preserve what had become an
involuntary political association. In essence, he kidnapped half the
The first Thanksgiving, we know, thanks largely to Rush Limbaugh,
but in my case, thanks to Robert LeFevre in 1972, was a celebration of
the end of a disastrous experiment with socialism. The Plymouth Colony
gave up its idiotic communitarianism in favor of private enterprise,
and they profited accordingly. If human beings really had an I.Q.
larger than their shoe size, that would have prevented the rise of
Proper thanks was due to the colony's governor, William Bradford,
who figured out the economics, converting the colony, ending American
When I was a kid, my father was an officer in Strategic Air
Command, and often worked sixteen hours a day, keeping us all safe, he
sincerely believed, from Soviet aggression. An ex-prisoner of war,
he'd seen the Russian military at work. He was a World War II
experienced bombardier-navigator who flew up over the North Pole a
couple of times a week in a misereable, cramped, frigid jet-powered
atomic bomber. When that day in November came around, I knew who to
My dad may have been mistaken about who was defending whom from
what, but he was the most decent human being he knew how to be, the
most decent human being I ever knew. He somehow found time to raise me
as decent as he could possibly make me, and he was a Scoutmaster,
besides. I made my Eagle primarily because I didn't want to disappoint
Some other Thanksgiving I might (and will) write about my mom. I
have much to thank her for. Or I might write about my invincible wife,
who has helped me recover from my recent illness—or dragged me back
from the edge of death more than once—and gave me my daughter. But
right now, I'm enjoying thinking about my dad, Air Force Major Lester
Neil Smith II, war hero, husband, and father, the real hero of my

German Professor: NASA Has Fiddled Climate Data On 'Unbelievable' Scale
by James Delingpole24 Nov 20153,711
A German professor has confirmed what skeptics from Britain
to the US have long suspected: that NASA's Goddard Institute
of Space Studies has largely invented "global warming" by
tampering with the raw temperature data records.
Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert is a retired geologist
and data computation expert. He has painstakingly examined
and tabulated all NASA GISS's temperature data series,
taken from 1153 stations and going back to 1881. His
conclusion: that if you look at the raw data, as opposed
to NASA's revisions, you'll find that since 1940 the
planet has been cooling, not warming.

With Mass Shootings, the State Makes Us Less Safe
by Justin Murray
In the wake of last month's shooting at Umpqua University in
Oregon, national debate has once again been sparked over the
role of firearm controls. Gun-control laws must be passed,
we are told, that target these events and reduce or
eliminate their frequency. However, much like most debates
in the political realm, convenience and sound bites take the
center stage over understanding root causes of violence
itself. The debate is further confused by improper data
comparison and information gathering techniques, mainly to
drive a pre-designed political agenda and not to attempt to
solve the homicide problem.
Before we get into the issue of general homicide, it is
important to clear a few common errors in identifying the
events in Oregon.
