Justin Raimondo, RIP (1951-2019)

Phi Quyền Chính - Anarchism: The Tao Of Anarchy

PQC: We all will be gone! Justin, you lived your life as you wished, you made your mark and your point in this earth. My appreciation.

I have the sinking feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of this American horror show, while – under the pretext of “fighting terrorism” – we act out our sadistic fantasies all over the world. As these outrages against human decency and morality provoke worldwide revulsion at the perpetrators, perhaps one day we’ll go looking for “terrorists” in the vicinity of a mirror – and see ourselves for what we’ve become. Justin Raimondo “Who Are the Terrorists?”

Tony And Capos Find Out For Federal Charges – The Sopranos

Buchanan didn’t say that

JCB Thoughts

On page xxxii of Democracy in Chains, Nancy MacLean writes the following.

mcl_you

Actually, what I find the most telling about this statement is that James Buchanan did not say this, or at least not in the article MacLean cites as the source. Endote 36 cites Buchanan’s essay “Saving the Soul of Classical Liberalism” as the source, but these phrases do not appear.  (The endnote also cites a book by Matt Kibbie, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff, so I checked it.  The quote does not appear in this book either.)

The closest related idea to the “quoted” statement is:

A motivating element in the liberal philosophy is, of course, the individual’s desire for liberty from the coercive power of others. But a second element in the liberal soul and spirit is critically important. It is the absence of desire to exert power over others.

Boris Johnson and misconduct in public office: 8 things you should probably know

he may well be a liar or a rotter or a charlatan, but such conduct does not of itself meet the legal criteria for misconduct in public office.

The Secret Barrister

On 7 June 2019, the High Court brought to a halt the attempted private prosecution of Boris Johnson for misconduct in public office. Today, the full judgment has been published. There has been a lot of commentary surrounding this case, not all of it based on a firm (or even rudimentary) grasp of the facts. So breaking it down, what exactly has gone on here? Eight (likely-to-be) FAQs spring to mind.

  1. What the dickens is going on, legally speaking?

 On 29 May 2019, District Judge Coleman sitting at Westminster Magistrates’ Court granted an application by Marcus Ball and Brexit Justice Limited for a summons against Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, the proposed defendant, in respect of a contemplated private prosecution seeking to charge the aforementioned Mr Johnson with three counts of misconduct in public office, contrary to common law. On 7 June 2019, the Administrative Division of the…

Reflections on the Israel Folau affair

Law and Religion Australia

Celebrity rugby player Israel Folau is in a complicated legal position. He shared a “meme” on social media site Instagram recently, the text of which was: “Warning: Drunks, Homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolators: Hell Awaits You- Repent! Only Jesus Saves.” To this he added his own personal comment: “Those that are living in Sin will end up in Hell unless you repent. Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him.” (The comment was similar to many other pictures shared on his account, many of which are Bible verses or exhortations to nominal Christians to follow Jesus Christ in deed as well as word.)

Social work student wins appeal against dismissal for views on sexuality

Law and Religion Australia

An important decision of the England and Wales Court of Appeal, The Queen (on the application of Ngole) -v- The University of Sheffield[2019] EWCA Civ 1127 (3 July 2019)has ruled that a social work student, Felix Ngole, should not have been dismissed from his course on the basis of comments he made on social media sharing the Bible’s view on homosexuality. The court says in its summary at para [5], point (10):

The mere expression of views on theological grounds
(e.g. that ‘homosexuality is a sin’) does not necessarily connote that the person expressing such views will discriminate on such grounds.

The decision is a welcome one, which will hopefully provide guidance in similar situations.
