The Push For Disarmament Begins: “The Globalists Are Waiting in the Wings To Take Down America And Confiscate Firearms”

The bottom line: Obama and the globalists can’t take the U.S. down without taking the guns out of the hands of its citizens. Continue reading

Advocates of Centralized Power Betray the Constitution

The Constitution doesn’t authorize the federal government to regulate marriage. But some people seem to be fine with the Supreme Court exercising any power, as long as it suits their agenda. Continue reading

Fast Track and TPP: The Death of National Sovereignty, State Sovereignty, Separation of Powers, and Democracy

Criticism of Fast Track and TPP has mostly focused on economic impacts, but little on the impact to national and state sovereignty, constitutional separation of powers, or democracy. Continue reading

The “Sach-ing” of America

The plan is quite simple: world government through global taxes, with a religious face to bring it about. In its essentials, Jeffery Sachs’ plan for the future sacking of America differs little from Islam’s. Continue reading

Government Refuses to Act Amidst Growing Evidence of Noncitizen Voter Fraud

Noncitizens are registering to vote and the federal government seems not to care about this illegal activity — as long as it supports their political agenda. Continue reading

NSA Phone Program Is Illegal, Appeals Court Rules (No Shit?)

A federal appeals court ruled a National Security Agency program that collects phone records on millions of Americans is illegal, intensifying a fight in Congress over extending the soon-to-expire surveillance effort. Continue reading

A Little-Noted Masterpiece of Constitutional Scholarship by Justice Thomas

Justice Thomas has provided us a masterpiece of constitutional thinking, explaining why “administrative law” — the practice of delegating to bureaucrats the making and enforcement of rules with the force of law — is so profoundly unconstitutional. Continue reading

Enemy Inside the Gates: Cicero’s Prognosis and the Supreme Adjudication of ‘The Great Society’

Perhaps Benjamin Franklin knew what he was talking about when he told the young nation, after it had adopted its Constitution, in substance, that they had gained a free and independent nation but did not have the common sense to keep it. Continue reading

On Constitution Day: ‘A Republic, if You Can Keep It’

It is remarkable the number of citizens that regard the United States of America as a ‘democracy.’ It is, of course, a Constitutional Republic, and always has been so. Thomas Jefferson regarded the distinction as such: “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” This article, slightly revised from its original form, first appeared in the November 6, 2000 issue of The New American. It is appropriate that we reacquaint ourselves with our Republican form of government on this Constitution Day 2014. Continue reading

In a Blow to Freedom of the Press, U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Protect Reporter from Obama Administration Prosecution Over Refusal to Reveal Sources

In a severe blow to the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of the press, the U.S. Supreme Court declined earlier this week to hear the case of New York Times reporter James Risen, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who writes about national security issues and is being targeted by the Obama Administration for refusing to reveal a confidential source.

Obama’s Unconstitutional Use of Executive Branch Power Faces Reckoning at Supreme Court

Nothing less than the boundaries of executive power are at stake Monday, as the Supreme Court considers whether President Obama violated the Constitution during his first term. Continue reading

Words That Replace Thought

To ask whether institutions that promote diversity 24/7 end up with better or worse relations between the races than institutions that pay no attention to it is only to get yourself regarded as a bad person. To cite hard evidence that places obsessed with diversity have worse race relations is to risk getting yourself labeled an incorrigible racist. Free thinking is not free. 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

Boston and Freedom

The Constitution was written to preserve freedom by restraining the government. The courts from time to time have required the government to respect the natural law, as well. But when the attorney general arbitrarily changes the law to suit the demands of the people when they are weeping, it fundamentally undermines our freedoms. And a pact with the devil is the most dangerous of all, because his appetite can never be sated. Continue reading

Nullification for Lawyers

Jefferson and Madison did not base their principles of nullification on the fact that the Constitution had not established an ultimate authority. They based their principles on the fact that the people of the states ARE the ultimate authority – not the federal government they created. Jefferson makes this clear in the first few lines of the Kentucky Resolution of 1798. Continue reading

Thomas Jefferson: Liberty and Power

It seems to me that in our present condition, the only means of getting judges, legislators, and executives to consult the actual provisions of the Constitution and to obey the oaths they take to observe its bounds and protect it is to adopt sanctions against its violation or evasion. In sum, it should be made a crime punishable by removal from office for any government officer, including members of Congress, to participate affirmatively in any act not authorized by or in violation of the Constitution. Trial for those accused should be in United States District Courts before a jury charged with determining whether a violation has taken place and a judge empowered to remove them from office. Continue reading

Evolution of an Obama Dictatorship: Nullifying Congress to Nullifying the Supreme Court

Are these examples cited here the pathway to impeachment? And if not, then what constitutes an impeachable offense in your mind? You must know in your own mind if you expect to maintain your Liberty and freedoms, regardless of your political associations. If you permit this guy to ignore the Constitution, you have set a precedent for the next. Like it or not. Continue reading

Jettison the Constitution?

Our trends for 2013 featured the advance of German-style National Socialism in the US, and this probably qualifies along those lines. The Times article unapologetically makes the argument for doing away with the US Constitution but what is to be substituted and how it is to work is not made clear. The argument itself is an obvious one, especially as hardly a shred of the so-called Constitution remains, in any case. The Supreme Court routinely defies it, Congress ignores it and the executive branch simply steps around it as necessary. Continue reading

The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions: Guideposts of Limited Government

For true change to take place, Americans must once again conceive of their history as a struggle to create and maintain real freedom. Part of that reconceptualization would entail making a place for the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions in the pantheon of American charters. The resolutions articulate the fundamental principles of our government in an eloquent yet logical manner; in their import, they rank second only to the Constitution. For Americans who would recreate a limited federal government of enumerated powers — the government created by the Founders ­— the resolutions can serve as an enduring inspiration. Continue reading
