Welcome to Islamberg 4

Law Enforcement Today

In Hancock, NY an Islamic community that sits on 80 acres of land has decided to form its own government.  They call their community: The Town of Islamberg.  They have their own mayor, deputy mayor and five town council members.  None of them are elected, of course.

They even boast that their “town” provides departments of education, medical, finance and land development services.

This Islamic compound has truly become a city-state.  Though not recognized as a legitimate township by the City of Hancock, this Islamic community nevertheless enforces its own laws on the “citizens” within its borders.  They do so by using the iron fist of Sharia law.

Sedgwick, Maine is first town to declare total food sovereignty, opposing state and federal laws Reply

NaturalNews.Com

There is a food revolution taking hold all over America, whether it is in the  form of demanding labeling of GM foods, the right to produce and sell raw milk  and other commodities, or – in the case of Sedgwick, Maine – declaring all local  food transactions of any kind free and legal.

The way our money moves: Cascadia defined by regional economy Reply

In a recent article published on Facts CoExist theoretical physicist Dirk Brockmann argues that state boundaries are often arbitrary and out of date, no longer representative of how we communicate or function as a modern society. By tracking dollar bills he has created a series of maps redrawing state borders by how our money moves, which more accurately portrays distinctive areas based on regional economy.

Cascadian Flags flood downtown Eugene 10

Environmentalists, Cascadians march through Eugene, OR – March 3, 2013

A forest of Cascadian “Doug Fir” flags moves through Eugene, OR on 3/3/13 following the Public Interest Environmental Law Conference

A march of environmentalists, eco-radicals & Cascadians took place on March 3, 2013 following the Public Interest Environmental Law Conference in Eugene, Oregon. I participated in one of the conferences’s many panels along with Cascadian activists: Cascadian Bioregionalism and the Indigenous Future. I also attended a packed and very lively panel by Deep Green Resistance. The Cascadian Revolution is nigh.

The World of 2100 Reply

Interesting insights from Robert Kaplan

Ancient and medieval mapmakers would better understand the world of 2100 than would the politicians of 2000. Nations as we know them have existed for only a few hundred years. But cities have been with us since the dawn of civilization. And while the future of the city is not Robert D. Kaplan, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, is the author of “The Coming Anarchy,” a forthcoming book.

While the future of the city is not in doubt, modern nations will probably continue to weaken in the 21st century. By 2100, the organizing principle of the world will be the City-state, along with the urban radials of prosperity that follow major trade routes.

Indeed, loyalty toward the polis will gradually overwhelm the traditional state patriotism of the 20th century. Empires will be agglomerations of urban areas. Cities and their hinterlands will make alliances and fight wars with and against each other – less over territory than over bandwidths in cyberspace and trade privileges. Power politics will prove eternal.

City-states are the Future? Reply

Trendsimwatching.com

Trend: Nation-states may be losing power to smaller entities as globalization sorts cultures into regions based on city-states.

VC Confidential describes a dinner talk by futurist Paul Saffo. Excerpts below.

Link: VC Confidential: A Global Evening with Paul Saffo

…our world is moving from one of nation-states to one of city-states. Rather than the future being one of the US versus China, it is going to be Silicon Valley vs Beijing or Chicago vs. Paris. Each dominant city will define its region. With the globalization of trade and the impact of the internet, people will identify both with the culture established by their city/region as well as with global, cross-border influences/factors such as Islam. With the “flattening” of the world, Chicago is no longer vying with US cities like New York for influence, commerce and jobs, but other major cities in the world.

Stockpiling Arms To Overthrow the Government Reply

This article unintentionally gets to the point. This is why I am pro-Second Amendment. I don’t give a damn about hunting or burglars. I hate the NRA as much as most liberals do. Most conservative gun rights advocates are also cop-loving, flag-waving jingoists. Fuck ’em. The purpose of the 2nd Amendment is for the final showdown with the System.

“Wonder if gun advocates would be so blithe about asserting this interpretation of the Second Amendment if it were being advanced by, say, black separatists or animal rights ultras or Native Americans demanding their land back?”

No problem here.

Washington Monthly

Kudos to National Review’s Kevin Williamson for coming right out and articulating the “conservative” (for once the quote marks are truly necessarily) perspective that is usually left just beneath the surface of the GOP’s and the gun lobby’s position on regulation of firearms:

A Blueprint To Restore The Articles of Confederation 1

By Ron Holland

This is the fourth of the “12 Axioms of Freedom Restoration” set forth in my introductory article on this topic, “How to Restore the West.”

The restoration of America’s first and legitimate government will not be a quick or easy task but it is necessary if we are to survive as a free people and nation. While the US should, of course, retain both the Constitution and Bill of Rights, we must return to a decentralized confederation structure of government like Switzerland or Canada and add in the right of Swiss style referendums so citizens can terminate or initiate legislation when Congress fails to follow the will of the people.

While there have been many thoughtful and needed proposals about how we need to end the Fed, return to a gold backed currency, require term limits, repeal the 16th and 17th amendments to the Constitution, require a declaration of war for military action or a balanced budget and other changes, none of these will restore limited government or our republic. I agree with these ideals and many more but all will be ineffective if we retain the federal government structure in place now.

Neocon mouthpiece Hannity foresees states leaving union if federal government continues ‘radicalized, abusive’ pattern Reply

The Daily Caller

On his Friday radio show, conservative talker and Fox News host Sean Hannity warned that the United States may fall apart if tax rates remain high.

“The states are now fighting and battling against their own federal government,” Hannity said. ”Same thing with individuals. If you live in a state like New York, New Jersey, California [or] one of these high-tax states [where] 60-plus cents of every dollar goes to taxes, you’ll say, ‘What the hell am I doing this for?’”

Threats of Secession: A Bipartisan Game Reply

By Charles C. W. Cooke

ThinkProgress is rather enjoying the post-election secession chatter. “Twenty five percent of registered Republicans want their state to secede from the United States, according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling,” the site reports.

I’ve made my thoughts on this idea clear before, so there is no need to reiterate them here. But it is worth pointing out that, for all the “look how crazy Republicans are” insinuations, secession talk is hardly a conservative phenomenon. Instead, to paraphrase Ron Paul, talk of secession is a deeply American tendency. As anyone who follows politics will know, leftists disappointed by election results are always threatening to move to Canada. Take attendees at this summer’s Democratic National Convention, for example. Per Mediaite:

R.I.P., Thomas H. Naylor, founder of the Second Vermont Republic 1

It is with great regret that I must inform our readers of the passing of Thomas  H. Naylor, founder of the Second Vermont Republic. I received word earlier this evening that Tom passed away last night after a sudden stroke at the age of 76.

Fortunately, I was able to interview Tom for my podcast on Voice of Reason earlier this year. The interview can be heard here.

Tom was the author of thirteen books, including three on secession, and one of his books, Downsizing the USA,  was crucial in the development of my own political outlook. It was largely due to Tom’s influence that I came to realize that decentralized micronations achieved through pan-secession are the most viable alternative to the Leviathan mega-states that plague us today. I cannot recommend Tom’s voluminous body of writings of these issue highly enough.  Many of Tom’s essays on secession, decentralization, and related subjects can be found in the archives of the Second Vermont Republic website.  

I have published Tom’s final essay in its entirety below.

Dissolution Could Be Better Option for States Than All-Out Secession 1

An interesting take on secession.

• People can withdraw their consent to be ruled by corrupt government

By Mark Anderson
from: American Free Press

Looking at recent headlines about citizens in the 50 states wanting to secede from the federal government, it’s tempting to conclude that they should secede from the federal union due to widespread disgust over Washington’s mismanagement and suffocating central control. But another important concept puts the idea of secession in a new light and suggests there is an alternative in case the White House ignores the people.

That other concept, rarely discussed, is dissolution of the Union. In this context, dissolution means that the modern federal government, through layers of radical statutes, executive orders and harmful constitutional amendments, has departed from the people’s intended constitutional order to such an extreme degree that it has become a different government, alien to the original system laid down by the nation’s founders. Therefore, the constitutional government we’re supposed to be living under has been dissolved.

“You wouldn’t secede from a dissolved government anymore than you would divorce a deceased spouse,” said Ron Avery, a Texas patriot well versed in the writings of America’s founders.

AMERICAN FREE PRESS sat down with Avery to gain a better understanding of this perspective. As Avery sees it, the issue boils down to this: Since the states and their people, which created the original federal government, are being ruled by a rogue regime that reset the dials so much that it overthrew the original constitutional order, then seceding from that unlawful, alien regime is a form of tacit acknowledgement of that imposter government’s legitimacy.

“You don’t secede from a dead union—[instead] you declare it dissolved,” Avery said.

Those freed states could stay separate or form their own unions, he added.

Avery stressed what he sees as a major flaw of secession: It basically “leaves in place” the rogue federal regime that rules its United States subjects and controls most of the world by force and fear. More…
