On March 15, 2012, I wrote the article, Shades of Y2K — Gary North’s bogus Apple prediction, about Gary North’s bogus October 11, 2011 prediction that:

Apple’s relentless descent to earth is inevitable. I can prove it in 15 words.”

“There is no one to follow him. There will never be another Steve Jobs at Apple.

In my March 15, 2012 article, I had wrote:

The closing price on Apple shares the day before his article was $388.81 USD per share.

As of March 15, 2012, in anticipation of the new iPad 3, Apple shares traded at over $600 per share — a 54% increase in just five months since his bogus prediction.

Now, on January 26, 2015, what had been a bogus prediction is now an outrageously stupid prediction, with Apple shares having traded on the previous Friday at $112.98, with a 7-1 stock split value of $790.86, a 103% increase over its October 2011 value.

Yet, Gary North continues to get paid subscribers and continues to get published on LewRockwell.com, showing that it’s not about ability, but consistent writing and being connected.

Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, April 12, 2014 on Truth Frequency Radio audio here:

Action-packed, energetic show! Bitcoin, Libertarian interview, Lyndon LaRouche’s disinfo, “Multicultural Madness,” Andy Gause on Karen Hudes’ gold claims, Lew Rockwell tones down an-cap rhetoric, his phony anti-state slogan, and paying taxes under protest of duress.

My finding of this statute allowing for recovery of the payment of property taxes in Washington State under protest of duress is in response to a commenter laughably claiming that purported anarchist, Lew Rockwell, seeking a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status for the Mises Institute wasn’t a voluntary agreement.

Here’s what a real anarchist would do if he/she chooses to pay taxes, and that’s pay under protest of duress, as I suggested in my response to his comment.

From the Washington State Department of Revenue’s document, Paying your Property Taxes Under Protest:

To preserve your right to seek a court ordered refund, you must submit a separate written statement to the county treasurer at the time you pay the tax stating (1) you are paying the tax or a portion of the tax under protest and (2) all of the reasons why you believe the tax paid is unlawful or excessive.

From the April 7, 2014 article, “Once, Twice, Three Times…Redux” by Bionic Mosquito at LewRockwell.com, a regular reader notes:

American libertarians like you have LRC in such high [e]steem, for good (past) reason, that you have difficulty to perceive the clearly unprincipled, biased stance of LRC on several matters.

…the last 3-4 years of LRC, for me, are marked by deep disappointment, mainly beca[u]se LRC’s proclaimed anti-state stance is subordinate to anti-US imperialism stance.

In sum, the anti-state principle is not systematically and impartially applied at LRC. It is subordinate to anti-US imperialism.

The irony is that Lew Rockwell entered into a voluntary agreement with the very same United States government that he regularly bashes and expects his readers to actually take that seriously.

I am glad to see LewRockwell.com’s obvious contradictions and tired, old rhetoric come under increasing scrutiny by others besides myself.

Despite that, some anarcho-capitalist recently commented on my post, Lew Rockwell tones down his anarcho-capitalist rhetoric in favour of more relevant and popular articles, and left in a huff when he tried to make it seem as if the two points I raised in the discussion had no real basis.

Once a haven of pure anarcho-capitalist rhetoric, LewRockwell.com has had to tone it down as of April 2014, in order to publish articles that people actually care about now that Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign is long over.

Where he once had 11-12 articles a day of the same tired, old anti-government rhetoric, he has recently had 4-7 articles a day on things that are more relevant to people than what Murray Rothbard or the same usual suspect anarcho-capitalist Mises Institute devotees have to say about events, past and present.

Here are those articles, starting on Tuesday, April 1, 2014:

From this February 23, 2010 Daily Bell interview with Lew Rockwell, he said:

Daily Bell: Is it reasonable to believe that the state will ever wither away or does reality instruct us that the best that can be done is to limit its power?

Rockwell: To me, that’s like asking if we can imagine a society without robberies and murders. Maybe it won’t ever happen, but we must have the ideal in mind or else we’ll never get closer to it. Without the ideal, progress stops. To some extent, then, whether reality will finally ever conform is not the critical question. What counts is that what we imagine can and should exist. I like to imagine a society without legally sanctioned aggression against person and property.

Andrew NapolitanoFrom his February 18, 2014 appearance on the Tom Woods Show, Judge Andrew Napolitano said (at 16:04):

Even when Lew Rockwell and you, and I, are dining together, I am the most libertarian person in the room.

and:

The long answer is that I am the quintessential Rothbardian. I believe that you have the right to avoid the state, to avoid the government, the absolute moral right to do so.

For more on Judge Napolitano, see my article, Dr. Stan Monteith on Judge Andrew Napolitano: “Is he another plant in the conservative movement?”, in response to Judge Napolitano’s statement that the first American to shoot down a drone flying over their house where their kids are playing would be an “American hero.”
