Just like the song says, war is good for nothing, yet we have found ourselves in a perpetual war in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Lybia, and Somalia. And this doesn't count our domestic wars against drugs, poverty, etc. We have been on a war footing for decades now, and it is only getting worse, not better.

Recall during the election between Trump and Clinton, so many people, even some libertarians, chose to vote for Trump because he would keep us out of World War III. I wonder what those folks think now that Trump is inching us closer and closer to a war with North Korea every day. Of course, I can't lay all of the blame on Trump, as Kim Jong-un has certainly been pushing buttons left and right, firing 14 missiles already in 2017, including one at the end of July that apparently has the ability to cover the entire land mass of the United States.

WHAT'S IN THE NEWS

HOW TO LIVE A LAVA LIFESTYLE

[26:28]

One way to choose to live free is to move. I've talked a lot about moving to New Hampshire, which is what my family decided to do to help achieve liberty in our lifetimes, but there are other places you can move as well to lower your coercion level. Case in point: Sand Point, Alaska, is an Aleutian island town of about 1,000 that swells by several hundred people during the summer commercial fishing and processing season. Until mid-July, it had a police force of three officers and a police chief.

The entire police force of Sand Point quit in July, leaving the town without any law enforcement presence.

WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

PLAY WAR-WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR CLIP

Just like the song says, war is good for nothing, yet we have found ourselves in a perpetual war in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Lybia, and Somalia. And this doesn't count our domestic wars against drugs, poverty, etc. We have been on a war footing for decades now, and it is only getting worse, not better.

Recall during the election between Trump and Clinton, so many people, even some libertarians, chose to vote for Trump because he would keep us out of World War III. I wonder what those folks think now that Trump is inching us closer and closer to a war with North Korea every day. Of course, I can't lay all of the blame on Trump, as Kim Jong-un has certainly been pushing buttons left and right, firing 14 missiles already in 2017, including one at the end of July that apparently has the ability to cover the entire land mass of the United States.

For all of Obama's faults, I do have to give him credit for not going batshit crazy on North Korea like Trump has. Trump's rhetoric is just as bad as Jong-un's and is designed specifically to piss him off even more. This is a sign of a man, Trump, who wants war, not one who is trying to de-escalate a war.

Just last week, Trump has ramped up his rhetoric to dangerous levels, tweeting out, "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely." So, basically, Trump has told Kim Jong-un that we have essentially surrounded him with our military options and he is fucked. Also, this month, the United Nations Security Council voted 15 to 0 to sanction North Korea in response to its missile tests. These sanctions are expected to cost North Korea $1 billion per year, that is a third of its estimated $3 billion in annual exports. These sanctions are on top of the sanctions that the Security Council imposed on North Korea back in 2006 that are still in place.

These new sanctions target North Korean economic activity broadening a cap on coal and iron exports to a full-fledged ban and adding restrictions on things such as seafood exports and the use of North Korean laborers abroad. But let's be clear about who is hurt the most by sanctions. It is the people of North Korea, the average, innocent civilian who is already starving and barely surviving. These sanctions will have a lasting impact on North Korea, all right, by being responsible for the deaths of many of its innocent civilians. In response to these sanctions the state run Korean Central News Agency said, “We will make the U.S. pay by a thousand-fold for all the heinous crimes it commits against the state and people of this country."

Let's make no mistake about it, Kim Jong-un's missile launches towards Japan are an act of war, against Japan, not the United States. However, our sanctions against North Korea are an act of war directly against North Korea. What if North Korea came to the oceans around the United States with warships and said that we could no longer import or export certain things? We would absolutely see that as a provocation and an act of war, as we should. And, the reverse is also true.

Going back to the dangerous rhetoric of Trump and his administration, Trump has some very frightening words for Kim Jong-un last week as well.

(PLAY TRUMP AUDIO)

Fire and fury the likes of which the world has never seen before. That is fucking dangerous talk. Vice President Pence followed up on that a could of days later.

(PLAY PENCE AUDIO)

So, the United States and its allies have the right to have nuclear weapons, but North Korea doesn't? No wonder North Korea doesn't think it's being treated fairly. Maybe because they aren't. 

And China is now the rational party in this situation, frankly. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said in a statement, "“China hopes that all relevant parties will be cautious in their words and actions, and do things that help to alleviate tensions and enhance mutual trust, rather than walk on the old pathway of taking turns in shows of strength, and upgrading the tensions."

But, China isn't staying completely neutral in this situation. A Chinese state-owned paper said, “China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten U.S. soil first and the U.S. retaliates, China will stay neutral. If the U.S. and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean Peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so.” 

So, in other words, China will do what it takes to maintain the land buffer between their mainland and South Korea, where there are tens of thousands of US forces. Who can blame them for that?

But, in the midst of all of this prick waving and bluster from both sides, we have to talk about who the losers will be in this situation if it turns into a war. Regardless of what country eventually "wins" such a war, innocent civilians will be the losers, as they are in every war. According to some reports, North Korea could have up to 60 nuclear weapons. Although the power of these weapons are about a tenth of the power of a standard US nuclear device, these weapons are still on par with what the US dropped on Japan in World War II, so they are very fucking destructive. The two dropped in Japan killed more than 150,000 people instantly and likely killed hundreds of thousands more from radiation and other aftermath. These are no small bombs, people, and they apparently have the means to put these on missiles. Missiles that apparently can now reach the entire US continent. Is this the type of country we want to be in a prick waving contest with? No fucking way.

Interestingly, less than 70 years ago we had a war on the Korean peninsula, so we have some actual numbers to look at for casualties from that short war. The US and South Korea fought for three years against North Korea and China and supplied by Soviet military equipment. The United States lost over 36,000 soldiers in the war and had over 100,000 wounded. There are still, to this day, nearly 8,000 American soldiers still unaccounted for from that war. 

But that is just a drop in the bucket to the death and destruction brought about by his war. South Korea lost 217,000 soldiers and over a million, yes, a fucking million, civilians. North Korea lost 406,000 soldiers and 600,000 civilians, and China lost 600,000 military members. This brings the total dead from this three-year war to just under 3 million deaths. 3 million people killed in this senseless, ridiculous fucking war. And we are about to start all over again.

Currently, about 20 million South Korean civilians live within striking distance of North Korean conventional artillery, including the entire population of the South Korean capital, Seoul, at 10 million people. Every one of those people are in imminent danger is fighting breaks out. There is no way we could stop the artillery before it did major damage to South Korean civilian areas. And, if war were to break out, you know that North Korea would use its nuclear arsenal not only against South Korea but likely against Japan and the United States as well. Fire and Fury like the world has never before seen is fucking right, but I don't think Trump fully understands what that means.

So, I guess after looking at all of this, war is indeed good for something. It is good for wiping humans off the face of the planet. Fuck war in the neck. As my late, great friend R. Lee Wrights said, "I am not at war." If we keep repeating that mantra loud and proud and far and wide, maybe, just maybe, someone will hear us and stop this madness before it's too late.

WHAT'S IN THE NEWS

In End the Fed news, a former Federal Reserve employee was sentenced Friday to 12 months probation and a $5,000 fine after pleading guilty in October to installing unauthorized software on a computer server at the U.S. central bank. Nicholas Berthaume, who as a communications analyst had access to computer servers at the Fed’s Board of Governors in Washington, installed software that connected to an online Bitcoin network in order to earn units of the digital currency, according to a statement Monday from the central bank’s Office of Inspector General.

Berthaume also “modified certain security safeguards so that he could remotely access the server from home,” the statement said. When confronted, he tried to cover up his actions by deleting the software; eventually, he was fired and admitted guilt, the office said. His actions didn’t result in the loss of any Fed information, and the board has enhanced security since the incident, the internal watchdog said.

Even Federal Reserve employees understand the importance and viability of crypto currencies now, to the point that they are using government resources to mine new Bitcoin for their own personal gain. With Bitcoin hitting all time highs of $4300 recently and still rising, now is the time to get involved in crypto if you haven't already. I've considered doing a beginner guide to Bitcoin on this show. If that's something you'd be interested in, let me know and I'll make it happen.

In cannabis news, Senator Cory Booker, Democrat from New Jersey, introduced a bill that could legalize marijuana nationwide, removing marijuana from the federal scheduling system completely. 

Booker’s bill also actively encourages states to legalize cannabis. Specifically, the bill leverages federal funds to incentivize legalization in states that have enforced laws against marijuana in a way that disproportionately impacts low-income people and people of color — a category that includes virtually every state.

The legislation would also be retroactive, so it would automatically expunge federal marijuana use and possession crimes from people’s records and let those currently serving time in prison for marijuana use or possession petition for resentencing. And it’d create “a community reinvestment fund” that Booker’s office said would go toward job training, reentry services, and community centers, among other programs.

The bill faces no chances of getting through Congress. But it shows the remarkable turnaround that legalization has taken over the past few years. At the beginning of 2012, no state had legalized marijuana. Just five years later, eight states — including California, the most populous — have legalized pot.

And now a well-known Democratic politician is proposing and even hoping to encourage legalization.

Although legalization doesn’t have much political traction in Washington, it’s backed by a majority of Americans. Gallup’s surveys found support for legalization rose to 60 percent in 2016, up from 58 percent in 2015 and 25 percent in 1995. With the federal government and the Trump administration vowing to crack down on states that have legalized marijuana within their borders, this issue will eventually come to a head as more and more states are nullifying the federal prohibition on cannabis. 

In unfit to exist news, a US citizen who was held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for three years was denied compensation by an appeals court. 

Davino Watson told the immigration officers that he was a U.S. citizen. He told jail officials that he was a U.S. citizen. He told a judge. He repeated it again and again.

There is no right to a court-appointed attorney in immigration court. Watson, who was 23 and didn't have a high school diploma when he entered ICE custody, didn't have a lawyer of his own. So he hand-wrote a letter to immigration officers, attaching his father's naturalization certificate, and kept repeating his status to anyone who would listen.

Still, Immigration and Customs Enforcement kept Watson imprisoned as a deportable alien for nearly 3 1/2 years. Then it released Watson, who was from New York, in rural Alabama with no money and no explanation. Deportation proceedings continued for another year.

Watson was correct all along: He was a U.S. citizen. After he was released, he filed a complaint. Last year, a district judge in New York awarded him $82,500 in damages, citing "regrettable failures of the government."

On Monday, an appeals court ruled that Watson, now 32, is not eligible for any of that money — because, get this shit, the statute of limitations actually expired while he was still in ICE custody without a lawyer. 

The court ruled, "There is no doubt that the government botched the investigation into Watson's assertion of citizenship, and that as a result a U.S. citizen was held for years in immigration detention and was nearly deported. Nonetheless, we must conclude that Watson is not entitled to damages from the government."

So, he was kidnapped and held against his will illegally by his own government for three and a half years and is not allowed to receive restitution for that because he was being held illegally just long enough for the government to say the statute of limitations was passed. What the actual fuck? Please, tell me how anyone can continue to call this shit the justice system. 

Watson is not the only U.S. citizen to be detained in immigration court.

NPR's Eyder Peralta reported on the phenomenon in December:

"It's illegal for U.S. immigration authorities to hold Americans in detention.

"However, an NPR analysis of data obtained through a Freedom of Information Act Request shows that hundreds of American citizens each year find themselves in a situation similar to [Lorenzo] Palma's. Those data show that from 2007 through July of last year, 693 U.S. citizens were held in local jails on federal detainers — in other words, at the request of immigration officials. And 818 more Americans were held in immigration detention centers during that same time frame, according to data obtained through a separate FOIA request by Northwestern University professor Jacqueline Stevens and analyzed by NPR.

"A separate NPR review of court records showed that in dozens of similar cases, Americans asserted their citizenship only to be sucked into a system they should have never been a part of. Some were held for days; others, for months. Some were denied bail, and most were denied a court-appointed lawyer."

For those libertarians who think we need a strong border and to stop immigration, I present you this case. Remember, walls big enough to keep others out are big enough to keep you in. And, more importantly, who do you think will be protecting the border? That's right, ICE, who have consistently gotten it wrong, time after time after time. Do you want a police state? This is how you get a police state.

In New Hampshire, It's like this, too news, New Hampshire is the latest state to ban the use of Stingrays to track the location of phones and sweep up electronic communications without a warrant in most situations became law without the governor’s signature. The new statute not only protects privacy in New Hampshire but will also hinder one aspect of the federal surveillance state.

The legislation will help block the use of cell site simulators, known as “stingrays.” These devices essentially spoof cell phone towers, tricking any device within range into connecting to the stingray instead of the tower, allowing law enforcement to sweep up communications content, as well as locate and track the person in possession of a specific phone or other electronic devices.

HB474 prohibits the warrantless use of stingrays both for location tracking and gathering data or information from a phone. The law does allow warrantless use of a stingray under a judicially-recognized exception to the warrant requirement.

The bill also includes provisions requiring police to limit the collection of data or metadata to the person named in the warrant and to immediately, permanently delete any information gathered on anyone not so-named. Police will also have to delete any data or metadata relating to the person named in the court order within 30 days if there is no longer reason to believe the information is evidence of a crime.

So far this year in New Hampshire: Constitutional carry, cannabis decriminalisation, expanded medical cannabis, cryptocurrency deregulation, overdose immunity, home poker games, hair braiding licencing repeal, firecracker legalisation, legalised needle exchange, allowing brewpubs to make cider, greater vaccine options at pharmacies, town tuitioning freedom, prohibiting mandated common core, 1600 regulations eliminated, and now a ban on Stingrays! If this isn't happening in your state, maybe it's time you moved to New Hampshire and helped us finish the job of bringing freedom to everyone here. Tired of spinning your wheels in literally every other state in the country? Get tired of winning instead in New Hampshire!

In government investigates itself news, exposing the double standard between police and civilians, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday that no criminal charges will be filed against the eight LAPD officers responsible for nearly killing an innocent woman and her daughter when they "accidentally" fired 107 bullets at them. 

At 5 a.m. on February 7, 2013, Margie Carranza and her mother, Emma Hernandez, were delivering newspapers throughout a residential neighborhood in Torrance when eight LAPD cops suddenly opened fire. As Carranza suffered cuts from the flying glass, Hernandez was shot twice in the back while trying to protect her daughter. One bullet exited just above Hernandez’s collarbone, while the other bullet struck her lower back, near her spine. A fragment of shattered glass also flew into her eye.

After firing 107 bullets at the innocent women, the LAPD cops ordered them out of the vehicle and immediately realized their mistake. Instead of a 33-year-old black man, two Hispanic women exited the pickup truck and demanded to know, “Why did you shoot at us?”

The officers responsible for nearly killing Carranza and her mother had been tasked with guarding the house of LAPD Capt. Justin Eisenberg. Because the police captain had been a member of the Board of Rights that voted to terminate former Officer Christopher Dorner, police suspected Dorner might attempt to kill Eisenberg or his family. The police captain was also named in Dorner’s manifesto, which he posted online after the initial murders.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced that LAPD officers Jess Faber, Marlon Franco, Sergio Gramajo, John Hart, Geoff Lear, Deshon Parker, Jonathan Roman, and Sgt. John Valdez would not face charges for the attempted murders of Carranza and her mother. Due to the fact that the entire police department was scared of one man and could not be held accountable for their incompetent actions, none of the officers who fired 107 bullets at two unarmed, innocent women will face prosecution. Although the women received a $4.2 million settlement and a new pickup truck, no cop will be held accountable for firing the first shot or failing to correctly identify the make/model of the vehicle along with the race and gender of its occupants.

Ask yourself one question. If these guys had been members of the Crips, the other gang that wears blue, do you think they would have all walked free without any charges? Of course not. The government investigates itself and finds it did nothing wrong, yet again.

In film the police news, contradicting the rulings of six others federal courts, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals annihilated free speech rights in upholding a district court decision stating citizens do not have the right to film public officials — politicians, police, and others — in public.

In affirming the decision of the lower court to dismiss, the Eighth Circuit effectively ended free speech activist Matthew Akins’ challenge to the Columbia, Missouri, Police Department, which he accuses of unlawfully stopping and arresting him on multiple occasions — though nearly all charges were later dropped — as he filmed their encounters with the public, in public.

This ruling goes against precedence established by the First, Third, Fifth, Seventh, Ninth, and Eleventh Circuits, which decided the Constitution guarantees the right to film public officials in public settings, as long as recording does not interfere. States comprising the Eighth Circuit, where this ruling affects, are Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota. 

Reports indicate Akins — barring an unlikely rehearing in the Eighth Circuit Court — may indeed appeal his case to the Supreme Court. Because multiple federal judges have upheld the right to film police and public officials as a constitutionally-protected activity on multiple occasions, the ramifications of Laughrey’s ruling may not be as far-reaching and detrimental as appears now — but the ultimate litmus test seems inevitably poised for SCOTUS.

Atkins lawyer, Stephen Wyse said that right now, the seven states of the Eighth Circuit do not have the same first amendment rights that all other citizens enjoy. "The First Amendment is a core American value. The right to free speech and a free press are central to our liberty and our ability to hold our government accountable."

This will be one to watch because the Supreme Court will likely need to hear this one to clear up the contradicting rulings by Federal Circuit Court decisions. 

HOW TO LIVE A LAVA LIFESTYLE

One way to choose to live free is to move. I've talked a lot about moving to New Hampshire, which is what my family decided to do to help achieve liberty in our lifetimes, but there are other places you can move as well to lower your coercion level. Case in point: Sand Point, Alaska, is an Aleutian island town of about 1,000 that swells by several hundred people during the summer commercial fishing and processing season. Until mid-July, it had a police force of three officers and a police chief.

The entire police force of Sand Point quit in July, leaving the town without any law enforcement presence. 

Trouble started around July 10, when the first police officer quit when his military spouse was transferred out of state, said city manager Andy Varner.

Soon after, two police officers — a married couple — resigned from their jobs "to take care of some personal family issues."

That left police chief Roger Bacon.

But when Bacon opted to go on a long-planned month long vacation to Scotland, leaving the town without any police presence, Bacon and the city council made a "kind of mutual" decision that he wouldn't have a job when he returned, according to Varner.

That meant Sand Point had no police force left, at the peak of the frenzied commercial fishing and processing season.

Things actually went pretty smoothly in the days the town was without a police department, said Austin Roof, the general manager of the local public radio station KSDP 830 AM.

"Everyone was busy fishing, which was great," Roof said.

All told, Sand Point was only without law enforcement for four or five days until the town hired an interim police chief. 

Funnily enough, the city of Sand Point released a Public Service Announcement calling for calm, saying that while the police department was "in transition," citizens should "rest assured that the community will NOT be in a lawless state." And an Alaskan State Trooper spokesperson said, "It's not like the movie 'The Purge,' " in which all criminal activity becomes legal for a 12-hour period. 

That shows you the mentality of our rulers. They honestly think that we can't take care of ourselves at all, that without them ruling over us and protecting us that we would descend into lawlessness. Of course, this is utter horseshit. We would just keep doing what we've always done, just with less government coercion in our lives. We would go to work, we would go shopping, and yes, we would go fishing, if that's your thing.

Thank you for listening to the show this week. As always, I need to thank my favorite jamstress, Jessica, for her help with this show. For the show notes to this episode, where I put links and other information that has been on this show, go to thelavaflow.com/68.

I have three new iTunes reviews this week.

Philoniousunk said:

I'm a new libertarian! I've been listening to your pod for about two weeks now, you eloquently verbalize a lot of my problems with the current political climate. Thank you for what you do, as recovering statist your pod is very helpful. Today thanks in part to your pod and my journey of discovery over the last several years since I left the USMC, I changed my registration from republican to Libertarian. So thank you.

That's awesome, Munk. I'm glad to have helped you in your path if even a little bit. This is why I do what I do and it's always great to hear from those that I've helped on the path out of statism.

And, Christoper had this to say:

The real deal! Rodger Paxton represents the moral compass of the liberty movement. If libertarianism is the core of republicanism, ararcho-capitalism/voluntaryism/agorism is the core of libertarianism. Without guys like Rodger keeping us in check, minarchists and classical liberals would run a much higher risk of forgetting their principles and going full blown statist. It was a tough choice between becoming a financial supporter of The Lions of Liberty vs The LAVA Flow but I hope to some day to have a bigger political budget so I can support you both.

Christopher, thanks so much for this awesome review. And, you know, the guys over at Lions of Liberty do great work as well, which is why I throw them some financial support as well, so they deserve your support.

And, finally, Joe said:

Just listen! That thing you feel you're missing in your life is real, true freedom. This podcast will help you find it. This is your weekly dose of perspective and sanity.

Thanks, Joe! I'm glad you're getting your dose!

Remember, iTunes helps to steer people to this podcast based on ratings and reviews, so please go to thelavaflow.com/itunes and leave me a rating and a review. All the cool kids are doing it. Thank you to everyone who has left me a rating and a review so far. You guys rock!  To all of you who haven't, can you guys help me out and go leave a review for me?
