Here’s monetary reformer Bill Still on an important monetary court case victory in Canada by COMER (the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform), concerning the power of the federal and provincial governments to borrow money from the Bank of Canada interest-free (or effectively interest-free, by the federal government receiving the Bank’s profits).

My comment:

Great news, indeed, and very important, since cases like this are usually thrown out due to standing issues, with the bogus claim by judges that the petitioners aren’t eligible to have their case heard due to reasons like not being directly affected, etc.

And unlike a direct constitutional challenge, they are actually pointing to a statute, which is very important, since the court can’t say that it’s just the petitioners’ interpretation of the constitution, but it’s right there as active law because unfortunately these judges and lawyers have been trained to treat statutes more seriously than plain-meaning interpretations of the Constitution itself.

What I do wonder is how they can force the government to get loans from the Bank of Canada, and also how they can be made interest-free, since the provision just mentions loans, but not the interest rate, and of course the banksters will not want them to be interest-free.

But there is a nice way that the loans become effectively interest-free if the federal government does the borrowing, since the government is the sole shareholder of the Bank, and all profits return to the government.

Dr. Edwin Vieira, author of The Sword and Sovereignty, was on the Power Hour with Joyce Riley on July 28, 2014, and provided an excellent and concise explanation of “a well-regulated Militia,” with reference to the United States and its Constitution.

– The Department of Homeland Security is unconstitutional
– A “well-regulated Militia” means statutory authorization and regulation by the several States, and doesn’t include privately-run militias
– The definition of Militia is best expressed by the Constitution of Virginia, which is the whole body of the people
– Exemptions could be given to most for completing a first-aid course, for example
– Women originally not part of the Militia because they were not legally emancipated, but would now be considered part of the Militia
– Age restrictions in place (originally up to 44 years old) in the 1700s before modern medicine could alleviate these conditions, and modern society allows individuals to serve in other capacities, like office work
– The National Guard isn’t a Militia, with the proof being that there is no notice given to all citizens to participate in it
– The Militia is intended to “execute the laws of the Union,” meaning that there is to be no federal agencies that perform a police or para-military function outside of the Militia
– Police abuses could be kept in check by the Militia, which is composed of the body of the people
– Constitutional Militias could be brought in any time — the only thing stopping that is the political class and a lack of citizen demand for them from State officials

VaccinesThe Waterloo Region Record‘s May 1, 2013 article, 1,718 high school students get immunization suspension notices, allows for no comments, or I would’ve pointed out that vaccinations are not mandatory in Canada, and this was confirmed in this official Canadian government report in 1996.

Unlike some countries, immunization is not mandatory in Canada; it cannot be made mandatory because of the Canadian Constitution. Only three provinces have legislation or regulations under their health-protection acts to require proof of immunization for school entrance. Ontario and New Brunswick require proof for diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, and rubella immunization. In Manitoba, only measles vaccination is covered. It must be emphasized that, in these three provinces, exceptions are permitted for medical or religious grounds and reasons of conscience; legislation and regulations must not be interpreted to imply compulsory immunization.

The article is accurate in not claiming vaccinations are mandatory, but it also happens to omit the fact that they aren’t mandatory, and the only requirement for vaccinations for public school students is if there’s a declared outbreak at the school, and then it’s only a requirement for continued attendance, which leaves parents with other education options in the meantime.

Unlike many U.S. states (30 at the time of the article), these three provinces allow exemptions for conscience, so one doesn’t have to claim a religious exemption when conscience is the real reason.

Dick Cheney, Vice President of the United States.

Showing that his ignorance of, or disdain for, the Constitution doesn’t only apply to nine of the 10 amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights, Dick Cheney said in his February 13, 2013 interview with Charlie Rose (at 41:17):

I think it’s very important we not infringe the rights granted to all Americans under the Second Amendment

Except that the Second Amendment granted no rights, and only affirmed existing rights, including the right of self-defense.

Further demonstrating his willful ignorance, given that he repeatedly swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, Cheney fails to realize that the sole purpose of the Second Amendment is to recognize the existing right to keep and bear arms as a bullwark against government tyranny, which is why the right to keep and bear arms is mentioned in connection with a well regulated militia.

Anti-state? Oh, really?!

In my January 20, 2011 article, LewRockwell.com now pro-state? Oh Lew, say it’s not true!, I wrote about two pro-state articles published at LRC in one week alone.

The latest pro-state article to come from LRC is the January 10, 2013 article, Let’s Give Up on the (Unwritten) Constitution, where author Brion McClanahan wrote:

What the American political system needs is a good dose of federalism and decentralization and a return to the Constitution as ratified through the Tenth Amendment.

This from the site that claims it is “anti-state.” Indeed — much like how Fox News is “fair and balanced.”

The Ludwig von Mises Institute, which Lew Rockwell founded and heads, also hates government so much, they’re a government-sanctioned and regulated tax-exempt organization, and owned $4 million in U.S. Treasury Bonds in 2007 — yet none of these inconsistencies seem to matter to Mises devotees, as indicated by the replies to this post on mises.org.
