Financial Tyranny: ‘We the People’ Are the New Permanent Underclass in America

The message is this: there is power in our numbers. That remains our greatest strength in the face of a governmental elite that continues to ride roughshod over the populace. It remains our greatest defense against a government that has claimed for itself unlimited power over the purse (taxpayer funds) and the sword (military might). Continue reading

The Danger of the “Black Lives Matter” Movement

We have been here before. In the 1960s and early 1970s, black and white radicals directed hatred and occasional violence against the police. The difference today is that anti-cop ideology is embraced at the highest reaches of the establishment: by the President, by his Attorney General, by college presidents, by foundation heads, and by the press.

Does the United States Still Exist?

Historically, a government that can, without due process, throw a citizen into a dungeon or summarily execute him is considered to be a tyranny, not a democracy. By any historical definition, the United States today is a tyranny. Continue reading

The War of 1861

The 1783 Treaty of Paris ended the war between the colonies and Great Britain. Its first article declared the 13 colonies “to be free, sovereign and independent states.” These 13 sovereign nations came together in 1787 as principals and created the federal government as their agent. Principals have always held the right to fire agents. In other words, states held a right to withdraw from the pact — secede. Continue reading

Something Wicked This Way Comes: Obama’s Unconstitutional Federal Police Force and Standing Domestic Army

The “Sach-ing” of America

Judge Napolitano: “Freedom Act” Bill Meant to ‘Fix’ Patriot Act Instead Legitimizes ‘All Spying All the Time’

The so-called Freedom Act would actually legitimize all spying all the time on all of us in ways that the Patriot Act fails to do. It is no protection of privacy; it is no protection of constitutional liberty. It unleashes American spies on innocent Americans in utter disregard of the Fourth Amendment. Continue reading
