Nixon, GDP, and judicial fraud...

Error message

The Modern State employs an endless fund of techniques to manipulate its citizens. In the realm of propaganda, the practice of Modified Limited Hangout (a term coined during Watergate) helps the government blunt the impact of bad news by releasing some information but concealing really bad stuff. The goal is to relieve pressure for the release of the really bad stuff, or if that is not possible, soften up resistance and condition us to mutely accept what was only a short time ago unthinkable or outrageous...

Take, for example, statistics on U.S. Gross Domestic Product, a calculation of the sum total of goods and services produced in the United States during a given period. In the first quarter of 2014 (January through March) the government told us GDP grew by a miniscule 0.1%. Then after a revision of this “initial estimate,” the government told us GDP shrank -1%. Then still later, the government performed another revision and that squirrely GDP had actually shrunk -2.9%. The government refers to this shrinkage as negative growth. In other words, for the same quarter, GDP grew progressively worse with each revision of the government statistics and went into the books as one of the worst quarters on record.

On the same day that the government finally let us in on the secret that the economy is contracting at an alarming rate, U.S. District Court Judge Richard H. Young struck down Indiana’s ban on homosexual marriage. In dispensing with state law, Judge Young bandied about “Due Process” and “Equal Protection,” claiming he is merely enforcing the U.S. Constitution. The opinion is an utter fraud on the U.S. and Indiana Constitutions and We the People of Indiana.

Judge Young might protest that he’s only following U.S. Supreme Court precedent. He’s not. No such opinion has been issued. But he is following our Nixonian judiciary’s playbook for imposing homosexual marriage on the nation no matter what the people or Almighty God have said about it. The strategy of our federal judges is, so to speak, to revise the first quarter GDP over and over again, prepping us to acquiesce to their latest lies and manipulations as the news gets progressively worse. 

They release the bad news little by little so that their final subversion of God’s Law will seem inevitable and irrevocable by the time they swing the axe. In 1996, the Supreme Court struck down state laws forbidding special legal status for homosexuals. In 2003, the Supreme Court struck down laws criminalizing sodomy. In 2013, the Supreme Court struck down a portion of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and required all federal government agencies to recognize homosexual marriages. It’s Modified Limited Hangout—SCOTUS-style.

The day Judge Young announced his opinion county clerks in Marion, Monroe, and other counties stood ready, willing, and able to issue marriage licenses. The state forms for licenses have a blank for male and a blank for female. No matter. The Monroe County clerk simply whited out those words and replaced them with “Applicant 1” and “Applicant 2.”

There is only one constitutional remedy for this fraudulent usurpation: Impeachment. It did work in Nixon’s case. The arguments here are simple. Just as shrinkage doesn’t equal growth, bondage doesn’t equal freedom.
