On the Trigger- Cody Wilson



On this week's episode of "YOUR WELCOME" we are joined by Cody Wilson. Cody is the founder/director of Defense Distributed, a non-profit organization that develops and publishes open source gun designs suitable for 3D printing and digital manufacturing. Listen as he talks to Michael Malice about first amendment rights, crypto-anarchy and the concept of the downloadable gun.

The Democrats Have Lost Their God Damned Minds


I.

Now listen, if you're a Democrat, I'm not saying that you, in your every day life outside of what you think about politics, are insane– or at least I'm not saying you're any more insane than every other homo on this planet (genus, not orientation). But the voices of your party have lost their God damned minds.

They are having a terrible, slow motion meltdown live on everybody's phone, computer, and television screen, running furiously in vicious circles trying to find some way, any possible way, that you weren't all wrong about Hillary Clinton.

Couldn't be that she really lost. It just couldn't be! It must have been the Russians! The Russians, yes! They interfered in our election! And Donald Trump conspired with them!

America's future former newspaper of record.

II.

It's not good when an entire political party responsible for governance in the United States is in July 2018 still hysterically channeling Rosie O'Donnell's Mar 2017 public meltdown very shortly after Donald Trump was inaugurated.

Rosie O'Donnell: "The Charge Is Treason."




But Rosie's meltdown was far more understandable. She was having a hard time accepting that Donald Trump– who's bullied her for years on Twitter, and publicly humiliated her for cheap laughs and elicited thunderous applause during a televised debate– had become the president of the United States.

For Rosie it really was personal. And it was about Donald Trump, not Hillary Clinton. And it was right after the inauguration.

But Democrats are still in deep, white hot denial, going on two years later, that Hillary Clinton could have actually lost to Donald Trump, and they're taking it insanely personal instead of being curious and well-meaning enough to open their eyes and try to understand what really happened in the 2016 election.

What Really Happened in 2016


Every. Four. Years.

III.

For the good of your political party if not your own mental health and the stability of our society, you are going to have to stop this madness and just admit that Hillary Clinton was a crap sandwich, and that you and the establishment Democrats in the DNC and media who picked her for you were willfully blind to that.

And that you were wittingly naive and foolish enough to choose not to see that electing a uterus to steal more billions for thieving Wall Street banks, and continue over half a century of the U.S. raping and burning the Middle East and Africa to the ground is a seriously impoverished and decadent conception of progress.

That it's not because Russians stole the election from her that she lost, but because as deeply unpalatable as the television clown was, he still wasn't as bad as the deeply corrupt, influence-peddling, bloodthirsty, warmongering Hillary Clinton, and all her friends on Wall Street and the military industrial complex.

IV.

If Democrats can't bring themselves to do that, then at the very least just let it go and move on. Do like the Republicans did with George W. Bush and Iraq– just have mass amnesia!

They were so epicly embarrassed and mortified about that bloody nightmare of an administration, they spent the 2008, 2012, and 2016 campaigns pretending the Bush years never happened.

Look at it, damn you! Hillary Clinton voted for this.

Every Republican candidate on the primary debate stage for three presidential elections had to reach all the way back to 1984 and promise they would be the next Ronald Reagan, because no one dared suggest they might be the next George W. Bush.

The only way they could get a Republican in the Oval Office was by nominating an ex-Democrat from a liberal state (just like Reagan), television actor (just like Reagan), with the campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again" (just like Reagan).

It'll be like Bush never happened :)

V.

At least the Republicans had the good sense to have selective amnesia so we could move on as a society instead of twisting their minds and everybody else's to find some explanation, any reason, however tortured and specious, that they weren't actually wrong about George W. Bush and the Global War of Terror.

But the Democrats can't even muster that demented form of good grace for all our sakes and their own. We're nearly to the first midterms after Clinton's defeat, and they're still stuck in the Denial stage of the Kübler-Ross model of grief, and sliding into Anger, still trying to convince themselves that they were right.


The Anger is the Denial digging its heels in.

If you're frequently frustrated and angry, bitter and resentful– the kind of person who yells at your Twitter feed or rages at other drivers during rush hour– like very many of the people who vote and go to protests and get swept up in political movements, you might be in denial about something important and personal to you, something you're afraid to face because it's painful.

VI.

Swiss psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross developed her model based on her experiences working with terminally ill patients, but it seems to describe a mental process of resistance to any revelation or change in our lives that is painful and difficult to cope with, and the gradual, begrudging path we take to acceptance.

"1. Denial – The first reaction is denial. In this stage, individuals believe the diagnosis is somehow mistaken, and cling to a false, preferable reality."

When we cling tightly to our denial, every aspect of reality that threatens to shatter it, that shines a light on it and proves that our denial is wrong and that what we are denying is true– enrages us. We drive ourselves mad shoring up our denial and our fantasy reality with "alternative facts" (lies). If we're especially desperate, we are driven to find refuge in elaborate conspiracy theories.


And our spinning minds spin faster, desperate to shut out the truth, more afraid now of what we've been avoiding than ever, willing to believe anything, however ridiculous, that shields us from what we're denying, and madly determined to live forever in the false reality we've split off from the world to hide in.

2. Anger – When the individual recognizes that denial cannot continue, they become frustrated, especially at proximate individuals. Certain psychological responses of a person undergoing this phase would be: "Why me? It's not fair!"; "How can this happen to me?"; "Who is to blame?"; "Why would this happen?".

"How can this happen?" Sustained loud insistence on bizarre, unsubstantiated conspiracy theories about Russian interference in the 2016 election. "Who is to blame?" Nazis! Putin! Russia! Hackers! When we cannot bring ourselves to blame ourselves we desperately find someone else to take the blame for us.

If nothing else, I hope this understanding of a terrible propensity of the human psyche may be of personal benefit to you, and steer you away from the grave danger and suffering of this pitfall of the human soul. Or that should you fall, these words may come back to you during a time of darkness in your life.

Though it's not easy, the only way out is to face the dragon forthrightly, with courage and hope. If you won't swallow the bitter cup to the last drop, it will become an ocean and swallow you.

VII.

The more viciously and bitterly we cling to denial, the more frustrated we become at anything that threatens our denials, and the angrier we get at the scapegoat we've made to take on the blame that we fear we cannot bear.

Even more bitter and painful to see: Our actions in clinging to our denial reveal the falseness of our original intentions, which we believed were good. Truth, justice, the good of humanity– how could it have been about all of that if we are so willing to sacrifice the truth to avoid the pain of personal responsibility?

We are shocked and disgusted to find that we have become– that in fact there was always in us– that which we purported to hate! We have become cartoon caricatures of the very despotism we thought we had originally set out to defeat!

The Democrats who started out with a progressive humanitarian message of overturning despotic authority, have ended up by crying out in the same voice as the most iron-fisted, petulant, conservative, Old World monarch, whose feeble pride has been insulted by some slight: "Treason! Treeaason!"

OFF WITH HIS HEAD!



Like all political rhetoric, all that talk about progress and female empowerment was just talk. Now we see what we would have gotten if Hillary Clinton had won. A mob of blood-thirsty tyrants, and maybe another God damned war– with nuclear Russia.

Joe Rogan Peter Schiff



Peter Schiff is an American businessman, investment broker, author and financial commentator. Schiff is CEO and chief global strategist of Euro Pacific Capital Inc. He also hosts his own podcast, “The Peter Schiff Podcast” at SchiffRadio.com

Why Can’t The Media See Independent Voters?


Nearing the two year mark since the shocking 2016 presidential election result devastated both the Democratic and Republican Party power structures, liberal mainstream media journalists are still stuck in the denial stage of the Kübler-Ross model of grief.

They were so certain Hillary Clinton would win, the election result they expected was so cemented into their minds as an immutable reality before the election had even taken place that they could not let go of the perfect world they had created in their imagination, even after the electorate knocked down their castle in the sky.



Because they were so sure she was going to win, Hillary Clinton couldn't have really lost. All too ironically, they turned for solace to the line Donald Trump was feeding to his followers to embrace in anticipation of defeat ahead of the November election:

The election must have been rigged!

So on and on the Democratic Party and its supporters in the media have gone about Russian interference in the 2016 election, an interpretation that it now appears will never abate for the fiercest of Democratic partisans.

Admitting the DNC rigged the election against itself by ignoring independent voters and aggressively quelling the nearly successful primary challenge by an independent candidate, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, is out of the question.

The #TreasonSummit!


The Helsinki summit between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin has been styled "the Treason Summit" by hordes of liberal social media activists, following the lead of the New York Times, which ran an op-ed Sunday, entitled "Trump, Treasonous Traitor: The president fails to protect the country from an ongoing attack."

The article, by New York Times columnist, Charles M. Blow, begins by establishing the fact of Russian interference in the election as an indisputable conclusion of the U.S. intelligence community, and pointing out that, "it was not only the spreading of inflammatory fake news over social media," before referencing a May 2018 Senate Intelligence Committee report:

"In 2016, cyber actors affiliated with the Russian Government conducted an unprecedented, coordinated cyber campaign against state election infrastructure. Russian actors scanned databases for vulnerabilities, attempted intrusions, and in a small number of cases successfully penetrated a voter registration database. This activity was part of a larger campaign to prepare to undermine confidence in the voting process."

Blow is counting on his busy or lazy readers not to click the link to the report to read the very next line that he chose not to share:

"The Committee has not seen any evidence that vote tallies were manipulated or that voter registration information was deleted or modified."

That part doesn't play into his spin, so he chopped it off. At America's future former newspaper of record.

Misleading partisan journalism at its finest.

There's no doubt that Russian intelligence did their job by gathering as much intel on the U.S. election as they could, and probing digital infrastructure for weaknesses.

It's no newsflash that governments spy on each other. That's something every government's intelligence agencies do. That's something the United States' official allies like Israel (which perennially interferes in U.S. elections) and the U.K. do. The U.S. does it too. In 2013, leaked documents revealed the NSA had wiretapped German Chancellor Angela Merkel's phone and were spying on a number of German officials and journalists.

That doesn't stop these ostensible allies from engaging in diplomacy and international summits, and no one accuses the president or State Department of treason for meeting with them. This is a hysterically partisan attack, and it's not about America's national security, and it's not about Russia.

It's about the unwillingness or inability of American liberals in the press to admit that Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump fair and square.

Russian Fake News


The hysteria over Russian fake news having an impact on the 2016 election is practically fake news itself. Last Fall CNN's Dylan Byers breathlessly reported that, "Facebook estimates 126 million people were served content from Russia-linked pages."

That's such a big number, that it appears as if Russia significantly interfered in the U.S. election with an information campaign on Facebook. But when you dig into the article, past the point where the average person stops reading, you discover how fake it is:

"Facebook does not know, however, how many of those 126 million people actually saw one of those posts, or how many may have scrolled past it or simply not logged in on the day that one of the posts was being served in their News Feed."

It gets even better:

"'This equals about four-thousandths of one percent (0.004%) of content in News Feed, or approximately 1 out of 23,000 pieces of content,' Stretch writes. 'Put another way, if each of these posts were a commercial on television, you'd have to watch more than 600 hours of television to see something from the IRA.'"

Not nearly as alarming, is it?

Independent Voters


The truth is– notwithstanding partisan journalists everywhere twisting themselves and the truth into pretzels to blame Trump on Vladimir Putin– that Donald Trump did not win the election– Hillary Clinton lost it by failing to appeal to independent voters. If that's a lesson the DNC and its partisan acolytes in the press refuse to learn, the electorate will teach them again in 2018 and 2020.

Independent voters weren't swayed by Russian clickbait mills. They saw in Hillary Clinton everything they find disconcerting about the establishment and its partisan power structures.

They saw in Donald Trump, an independent, outside-the-beltway candidate, an opportunity to challenge both the Republican and Democratic establishments by electing someone the establishment didn't anoint.

That isn't my opinion. That is an absolute fact, borne out by the exit polls on that fateful November Tuesday. I recommend that journalists worth their salt go back and read IVN's report on the election results by party affiliation (or lack thereof) by Breton Peace and Shawn Griffiths the Wednesday after.

In all three critical swing states, partisan voters voted for their party, and independent voters swung toward Trump. These independent voters are patriots that care more about their country than they care about their party.

And I bet almost none of them speak a lick of Russian.

Cody Wilson's Back and 3D Printed Guns Just Guaranteed You The Second Amendment Forever

How's that national conversation going?

"We see liberty under threat. We see sovereignty under threat. We must respond." -Cody Wilson

"I don't believe in Romney versus Obama. I believe in real politics. That's a real political act, giving you a magazine, telling you that it will never be taken away... That's radical equality. That's what I believe in... I'm just resisting. What am I resisting? I don't know... But I can tell you one thing: this is a symbol of irreversibility. They can never eradicate the gun from the earth." -Cody Wilson


Cody Wilson is the University of Texas law student who invented the world's first 3D printed firearm, the Liberator, in 2013, and a 3D printed AR-15 lower receiver (capable of firing over 650 rounds), plus a number of magazines (including one for the AK-47)– and made the CAD files to 3D print them available for free to anyone with uncensored Internet on the website, DefCad.org.

3d Printed Lower Receiver AR-15 Demo, 2013




Checkmate, gun control

Liberator Pistol: Downloadable and 3D Printable


Cody Wilson based the design for the physible (or 3D printable) single shot Liberator pistol on the WWII era FP-45 Liberator created for the U.S. Army Joint Psychological Warfare Committee by skilled American gunsmith, George Hyde.

The Army wanted a simple, single shot pistol that could be easily, quickly, and cheaply mass produced, then air dropped by the Office of Strategic Services (the OSS would later become the CIA) into Nazi-occupied Europe for resistance forces to use.


A crude and clumsy weapon with a short, unrifled barrel, and an effective range of no more than 25-feet, the original Liberator was never intended for front line use by regular soldiers, but as a tool of insurgency, and a psychological operation to demoralize occupying forces. When planning for civilian resistance, occupying forces would have to consider the untold thousands of Liberators airdropped into the hands of civilian insurgents.

The modern, physible Liberator looks quite like its WWII predecessor, and seems to perfectly emulate its design, both mechanical and strategic. It certainly had its intended effect as a bold statement of resistance to world governments and an effective demonstration of the futility of state control.

Upon the publication of the CAD files for the Liberator by Cody Wilson's non-profit Defense Distributed in May 2013, the files were downloaded 100,000 times in 48 hours before the U.S. government sent a letter demanding the files be taken down.

Cody Wilson complied, but by then the files were available on the Dark Web and through decentralized peer-to-peer file sharing indexes like The Pirate Bay. It would be impossible for any government to ever take them down again without censoring the entire Internet. God bless the Internet.

Click. Print. Gun.
(Just add a single metal nail for the firing pin.)

Cody Wilson's Lawsuit Against The U.S. Justice Department and U.S. Department of State


"Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it." -Second Amendment Supporter, Malcolm X, Malcolm X Speaks

Within days of his opening salvo in a new digital war against gun control, the U.S. State Department closed in on Cody, threatening to prosecute him under federal arms export laws for making his 3D printable gun files available to people overseas by putting them online, ostensibly treating the matter as if he had shipped an actual gun to another country– like the U.S. does all the time.

(No hint of irony from the same people who sent 2,000 guns across the border into Mexico, in the bizarre, botched FBI gun-walking operation code-named "Fast and Furious," —including hundreds of AR-15 rifles, deliberately selling them to known weapons sources for the violent criminal Mexican drug cartel, many of which have been found at murder scenes of innocent civilians and a U.S. border patrol agent.)

And the U.S. federal government is responsible
for a lot more gun violence than this.

So Cody Wilson took DefCad offline, and assembled a legal team, and along with help from the Second Amendment Foundation, and amicus briefs from the Cato Institute, the Madison Society, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and even 15 Republican members of Congress– he took the Justice and State Departments to court.

He made a simple argument. He not only has the right to distribute 3D printable gun files under the 2nd Amendment, but also under the 1st Amendment. After five years of waging a legal battle over firearm freedom in America, the Justice Department quietly settled with Cody Wilson and his company, Defense Distributed, out of court, agreeing with Wilson's argument that his 3D gun files are protected free speech, and suprisingly offering to pay $40,000 of his legal fees, only a small fraction of the total costs of litigation, but still quite the cherry on top of what was essentially an unconditional surrender of the U.S. Department of Justice to the incontrovertible legal arguments of Cody Wilson's case.


Future 3D Printed Gun Laws Now On Shaky Ground– Not That It Matters Anyways :)


"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." -Mao Zedong

The settlement came a couple months ago, but the news first broke last week in a fascinating, if somewhat hostile feature article by Wired magazine, prompting Cody Wilson to tweet in characteristic laconic form: "Bad News Travels Fast."


As Reason magazine notes, the Justice Department relented as the case neared a ruling on Wilson's 1st Amendment argument, and the 5th Circuit Court judges showed no inclination to grant the government's merits in the case. God bless Texas.

Future attempts by legislators to censor, regulate, or otherwise make 3d printed gun designs illegal are now on shaky legal grounds, and there's no doubt that legislators and courts will remember what happened between the U.S. Justice Department and Cody Wilson in the 5th Circuit this year.

From the perspective of 2nd Amendment jurisprudence, this is just the latest landmark case in a remarkable series of rulings– from the U.S. Supreme Court's Heller decision in 2008, to the McDonald case in 2010, to the Woolard ruling in 2012– that have affirmed and even extended the 2nd Amendment protections for American civilians, so they can remain armed and vigilant against imminent threats to their life, liberty, and property. It's a libertarian dream come true. I told you libertarians are winning.

Come And Take It - 3D Printed Gun Plans Are Agorism, Counter Economics, and Cryptoanarchy in Action


"No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now." -Afrika Bambaataa & SoulSonic Force, Renegades of Funk

Back in 2013 I was watching with avid regard as the 3d printed gun revolution began to unfold in Texas.


In his media interviews, Cody Wilson assumes a coy and shifty pose, giving short and often indirect answers to the many odd questions journalists ask based on unspoken and– for most people– unexamined premises, ideas that Cody sees straight through and refuses to accept. It's an appropriate and articulate pose. I think Cody does it because he knows his actions speak much louder than his words. His demeanor, which confounds so many of his interviewers, seems to say: I made 3D printed gun blueprints. What more could I possibly say?




"Raising the federal age of gun ownership and possession to the age of 21; banning all bump stocks; making sure that we have universal background checks; making sure that people that have committed acts of domestic violence are no longer able to get a gun, which in Florida, it's harder, it's just not impossible, fully, yet; and making sure that people with a criminal history and a history of mental illness are not able to obtain these weapons of mass destruction." -Parkland, Florida rampage shooting survivor, David Hogg's legislative proposals on CNN, Feb 28, 2018

This gun control activist is either naively unaware or willfully ignorant of the inherent limits of such gun control legislation in the era of the Internet and 3D printing technology. The government can ban bump stocks and bully companies that sell them:


But without censoring the entire Internet, it can't stop people from making and uploading plans for 3D printed bump stocks. And it can't stop people from downloading them and manufacturing them with ease at home using a personal 3D printer:



The Revolutionary 3D Printer - How It Works


The fact that you can now 3D print a real gun from downloadable 3D printed gun designs is just one facet of a revolutionary technology that will change the entire economy and society forever. 3D printing as a form of manufacturing is so revolutionary because it is so unlimited in its possibilities.

In many ways it does for the world of physical, manufactured objects, what the Internet has done for information. The term 3D printing is a very perceptive way to formulate and understand "additive manufacturing," the more technical and explicitly descriptive name for this exciting new manufacturing process.

Traditional manufacturing machines typically use a "subtractive manufacturing" process, e.g. punching a specified shape out of a sheet of metal. Such a machine can only produce one kind of object. But– enabled by the power and versatility of digital computation– a 3D printer can read a digital design file for virtually any shape, and by adding successive layers one at a time, can manufacture any object a designer can dream up and model with the help of computer aided design software.

Here's a time elapsed video of a 3D printer in action:



Here's a time elapsed video of a 3D printer in action printing an upgraded version of one of its own parts(!), most of which were intentionally designed to be 3D printable:



Exponential Advancement of 3D Printing


Imagine that. 3D printers printing 3d printers. Self-replication is the essential characteristic of life. So what we're unleashing with 3D printers is the beginning of self-replicating machine life.

While consumer grade 3D printers are rather basic now, mostly used to print replacement parts in plastic and interesting trinkets, novelties, and toys, 3D printers have already advanced a long way since their inception, and just like the concurrent exponential trends of development in the power, versatility, and cost-effectiveness of computing over the past few decades, 3D printers are rapidly becoming more complex, capable, and affordable.

3D printer prices have rapidly fallen over the last decade, even as the machines have become more precise and capable of printing at higher resolutions. 3D printers will become even more versatile over the next decade, able to print at even finer resolutions with a growing variety of materials. At a fine enough resolution with enough materials, 3D printers will be able to manufacture items as small and complex as microchips and entire computing devices like smartphones from files freely distributed online.

In the very near future these personal manufacturing devices will most certainly be able to 3D print entire, fully-functional, sophisticated firearms with durable materials, and manufacture 3D printed ammunition for them to shoot. In fact, just a few months after Defense Distributed uploaded the CAD files for plastic 3D printable gun parts, California-based Solid Concepts (since acquired by Stratasys) demonstrated a pistol 3D printed from aluminum alloy. (They didn't upload the files.)



Just like personal computers, the technology used to produce this firearm will soon be available in every home.

The Second Amendment Forever


Being able to download gun designs from other computers over the Internet and then 3D print a gun in your own home will render gun control impossible forever. There will be no need for the Second Amendment any longer. Americans will not have to lobby Congress and hope it keeps the promises the federal government made in the Bill of Rights. It will simply be impossible for the government to stop us from being free to be dangerous and possess firearms for our right to self defense. A ban on high-capacity magazines or bump stocks will be unenforceable when manufacturing them becomes decentralized, when millions of people can download and 3D print one of their own.

In his report on the Justice Department's capitulation to Defense Distributed, Wired journalist Andy Greenberg called Cody Wilson's project "the winning move in the battle over access to guns."

But the battle is likely far from over.


The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. A future of freedom is not inevitable. You have to do something to make it a reality.

On April 1, 2013, Defense Distributed and DefCad went down. Visitors saw a notice from the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security announcing that the domain names had been seized pursuant to an order issued by a U.S. District Court. The next day, the websites were back online, and Defense Distributed posted a screenshot of the previous day's notice, captioned: "Real seizure? Fake seizure? It's a joke either way."

This April Fool's joke raised the specter of a threat to the free availability of 3D printable gun designs over the open Internet.

As William Grigg wrote that day at LewRockwell.com:

"How will gun-grabbers carry out their confiscations if people can download 3-D printing applications and manufacture their own?

They will simply steal the websites."

If the feds can just seize websites, that's the real winning move in the fight for gun freedom, right? Wrong. The April Fool's Day joke was a challenge to free people everywhere. Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed have done their part. They've created the designs. They've made them available online. But there's nothing they can do if their website is seized again, perhaps under a future, less 2nd Amendment friendly White House administration. Now you must act to make the 3D printable gun revolution truly relevant, and download the gun designs from DefCad.

The Washington regime can shut down one domain, but it can't stop a million of us if we make millions of copies of these designs and share them in decentralized fashion on peer-to-peer networks to propagate them onto millions of computers across the world, onto as many computers as possible. If you want to engage in a real political act, if you want to make a real difference, if you want to send a loud and clear message to those who would take our guns that they'll never be able to, download the files.

Then install the uTorrent file-sharing app on your computer and seed the files so that others can download them from your computer. This way, even if DefCad is seized by a gun grabbing administration, sovereign individuals everywhere will be able to download the gun designs they want (and have a right to possess) from a million other computers, including yours. This is a radical political act that carries the 3D printed gun revolution to fruition!
