Random Acts of Tyranny: Key Provision of STOCK Act Stripped

The Capitol Hill Corruption Continues While most of America was transfixed by the Boston Marathon massacre and the hunt for the bombers, Barack Obama found time to quietly sign off on Congress’ repeal of key provisions in the Stop Trading … Continue reading

Ending the ‘Special Relationship’ with Britain

Winston Churchill made the phrase famous, using it late in World War II and then in the “Iron Curtain Speech,” in which he warned that an Iron Curtain had fallen over Europe, with the Communists on one side and the Free World on the other. He warned that neither efforts to prevent war nor the rise of world organizations would succeed without the “fraternal association of the English-speaking peoples.” That meant, he said, “a special relationship between the British Commonwealth and the Empire and the United States.” Continue reading

Thomas Jefferson and Freedom of the Press

“No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions.” — Thomas Jefferson Continue reading

Holder Shares Obama’s Concerns Over Freedom of the Press. KInda.

“I am troubled by the possibility that leak investigations may chill the investigative journalism that holds government accountable,” Obama said. “Journalists should not be at legal risk for doing their jobs.” But, of course, that’s precisely what happened.

It’s a good thing thing Mr. Holder will once again be investigating himself and reporting back to the president on their shared concern for the Constitution and First Amendment rights. Continue reading

IRS Scandal Follows Old Obama Illinois Pattern

How extensive is this scandal? As far as we know today, the IRS took the lead in harassing conservatives and Tea Party groups, occasionally joined by the Department of Justice, OSHA, the ATF, and the Labor Department. If you were to add some news of spying on reporters – that was announced Monday — then it all becomes reminiscent of the following exchange from the 1976 movie All the President’s Men… Continue reading

Words of Wisdom: President Washington

“The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position.” — George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796 Continue reading

Why We Should Mistrust the Government

It should come as no surprise that President Obama told Ohio State University students at a graduation ceremony last week that they should not question authority and they should reject the calls of those who do. He argued that “our brave, creative, unique experiment in self-rule” has been so successful that trusting the government is the same as trusting ourselves; hence, challenging the government is the same as challenging ourselves. He blasted those who incessantly warn of government tyranny.

Yet, mistrust of government is as old as America itself. America was born out of mistrust of government. The revolution that was fought in the 1770s and 1780s was won in the minds of Colonists in the mid-1760s when the British imposed the Stamp Act and used writs of assistance to enforce it. The Stamp Act required all people in the Colonies to have government-sold stamps on all documents in their possession, and writs of assistance permitted search warrants written by British troops in which they authorized themselves to enter private homes ostensibly to look for the stamps. Continue reading

George Soros: His Influence on the Media and the IRS Scandal

New details regarding the IRS scandal that found the nation’s top tax office intentionally targeting conservative groups are surfacing. Like, for example, the fact that George Soros-funded organizations sent letters encouraging the IRS to investigate conservative organizations. Continue reading

The IRS Scandal: It’s About Discrimination, Stupid.

Indeed, this is bigger than the TEA Party. And it’s bigger than just Steven Miller. And it’s certainly a bigger deal than simply “poor service” rendered by a pair of “rogue employees” whose identity remains a mystery. This is pure, unadulterated discrimination. Perhaps Mr. Miller is not familiar with the ideals of due process or equal protection of the law. Continue reading

Former TEA Party Leader Describes Impact of IRS Attacks

The following story by Bill Hoffman for Newsmax illustrates why the Internal Revenue Service attacks on the TEA Party and other patriot groups rises to the level of a massive civil rights violation. As the Steve Malzberg interview makes plain, this was not some mistake in search of efficiencies, as outgoing IRS chieftain Steven Miller claims. It was a deliberate attempt to thwart political enemies of the Obama administration and the IRS itself. And it had precisely that effect. They knew what they were doing. Continue reading

Obama’s Reign of Tyranny

This type of premeditated serial attack on “political enemies” hardly seems an operation that paycheck-to-paycheck folks would initiate, nor be willing to risk their careers and government pensions. No, this was not something cooked up at the office water cooler. This is an extraordinary abuse of power by a very powerful federal agency — one that has been used before by an American president (Richard Nixon) to punish and intimidate enemies. But the implications of these recent IRS actions are far broader than anyone has yet realized. It is arguably the most colossal civil rights violation in American history, certainly since the very dark days of voter discrimination over a half century ago. Continue reading

The Benghazi Patsy

This wasn’t a case of nailing Al Capone on tax evasion. As Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute points out, Al Capone’s underlying offense was racketeering and gangland killings. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula’s underlying offense wasn’t an underlying offense. He exercised his First Amendment rights. Continue reading

Words That Replace Thought

The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the government has a “compelling interest” in promoting diversity — apparently more compelling than the 14th Amendment’s requirement of “equal protection” of the law for everybody. Continue reading
