# I took the family to Boston's South Shore for Christmas. We drove out on December 24 evening. This turned out to be a wonderful time to travel. Most people were already at their destinations, so the roads were almost empty. Even Route 128 wasn't too bad. There was quite a bit more traffic on the return trip last night, but even that abated after we passed the I-84 turnoff for the Big Apple. Horrible weather though. Driving rain in Boston and light snow in the Berkshires. But, thanks to my stellar snow tires, and cautious driving, we made it.

# Greg Szymanski at The Arctic Beacon - As We Look To The New World Order's 2006 Agenda, It's Best To Review The Research And Writings of William Cooper - a little conspiracy theory for the last week of 2005. I received a copy of the Rense.com reprint of this article via email through an ISP in Indiana.

William Cooper, a former military intelligence officer and world-reknown lecturer and writer, was killed in a suspicious 2001 police shootout in his Arizona home. Author of the best selling underground book of all time, Behold A Pale Horse, his top secret intelligence document discoveries provide proof positive the Illuminati intends mass destruction of half the world's population, reaching its diabolical goal in what the author terms 'the age of deception.'


"Many years ago I had access to a set of documents that I eventually realized was the plan for the destruction of the United States of America and the formation of a socialist totalitarian world government. The plan was contained within a set of Top Secret documents with the title "MAJESTYTWELVE". There was no space between majesty and twelve. The term honored the planned placement of ultimate power in a body of wise men who are destined to rule the world as the disciples of a Messiah front man. This "Messiah will serve as a buffer between the wise men and the sheeple. I discovered these documents between 1970 and 1973 while I was a member of the Intelligence Briefing Team of the Commander in Chief of the United States Pacific Fleet.


"The plan outlined the formation of a world totalitarian socialist government. It is to be ruled by a behind-the-scenes council of wise men. A so-called benevolent dictator, will be presented as the Messiah.

"The Constitution for the United States of America and its Bill of Rights will be scrapped. A parliamentary form of government will take its place. All military forces and individuals are to be disarmed except for an internal police force which will carry only the minimum weapons needed to maintain internal order."

# Kim du Toit - Reasonable People vs. The Mass Movement - a long-winded ditto to Kevin Baker's Reasonable People. Why Mr. du Toit thinks that conservatives will win. I'm linking to it only to encourage his link to Albert Jay Nock's seminal essay, Isaiah's Job (html version here). Remember the remnant. Don't get me wrong. I think much of old-school conservative philosophy is correct. Unfortunately, what Mr. du Toit doesn't realize is that the conservatives are no longer represented by the Republican Party. The Republicans have for a long time now been New World Order socialists, just like the democrats. I look forward to the conservative base of the Republican Party realizing this fact. You see, unlike most democrats, they have guns, and know how, and when, to use them. [kimdutoit]

# Jim Bovard - Donlan's Courageous Barron's Editorial on Impeachment - commentary on a Barron's editorial by Tom Donlan, which is available only to subscribers (no BugMeNot information available). Mr. Donlan said that Bushnev's wiretaps may be an impeachable offense. Good for him. [bovard]

"Willful disregard of a law is potentially an impeachable offense. It is at least as impeachable as having a sexual escapade under the Oval Office desk and lying about it later."

Donlan concludes: "If we don't discuss [Bush's illegal wiretapping] program and the lack of authority for it, we are meeting the enemy -- in the mirror."


If impeachment proceedings begin, congressmen should look far beyond the wiretapping scandal. I suspect that there are other White House secret orders and memos that may make the illegal wiretapping look like jaywalking.

# Vin Suprynowicz at The Las Vegas Review-Journal - 'The unlimited power of the sword' - good short argument for why the Second Amendment recognizes the right of every man, woman, and responsible child, to possess Uzis and other modern military weapons. And an explanation of the meaning of "budget cut" to Democrats.

Under the form of government that we're told Americans still enjoy, the government can exercise only those powers that are delegated to it by the people. You cannot delegate a right or power that you do not already possess. Therefore, if members of the U.S. Army have legitimate authority to "keep and bear" Uzis and nuclear weapons, they can only have gotten that right from the individual Americans who delegated it to them.

It doesn't matter whether you "think this is a good idea." If you want to contend we now have a form of government in which our rulers start with all rights and powers, and allow to the peasantry only those lesser included liberties as they see fit, say so out loud now, please. And tell me when the original Constitution was voided, and by what legal process.

Nor do we usually or necessarily abdicate a right when we delegate it: We delegate to police the duty to chase down fleeing felons, but each citizen retains the right to go ahead and do this himself if circumstances dictate.
