when the federal government “assumes undelegated powers…” nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.

1 Comment

For more than a century, We the People have been marching on D.C. in the hopes that federal politicians would see the light and limit federal power. We have been suing in federal courts in the hopes that federal judges would limit federal power. We keep “voting the bums out.” But every federal election cycle we end up with new bums that expand federal power! 

Asking, demanding, hoping – that the federal government will limit its own power – just doesn’t work. So why not try something new? Nullify Now!

Thomas Jefferson wrote that when the federal government “assumes undelegated powers…” a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.

NULLIFICATION – has a long history in the American tradition. It is happening across the country RIGHT NOW. And YOU can help this growing movement go mainstream. More

Czars And A Gulag America?

Czars were Russian tyrants. Gulags were Russian slave labor camps. Are gulags coming to America? We already have a growing corps of Czars. 

The oligarchs of the International Monetary/Banking Cartel took a huge step towards the tyranny of their New World Order when they put their man ­ Barack Obama ­ into the White House. 

Obama, who many Americans still consider to be their friend, has had the audacity ­ the cheek, the arrogant insolence ­ to have appointed a growing cadre of Czars, on top of a bloated bureaucracy that is already at least a thousand times too large and too intrusive.

This is “in your face” tyranny. The very word ­ Czar ­ is repugnant to any democracy. The very definition of the word Czar means, “king” or “emperor” or “autocrat” or “tyrant.”  More

WAR IS A FOOLS ERRAND

The banking oligarchy, and most of their American serfs, wrongly assumed that America’s military and economic status gave it the means to impose its view of what the world should be like on other Nations. Then came Korea and Viet Nam, whose attitude and resolve went unchanged, and the lesson that primitive people have no breaking point remained unlearned.

Once again Americans are foolishly assuming that the peoples of the Middle East will change their attitudes if enough force is imposed for a long enough time, and enough lies of a better future are made. History belies this assumption. Unfortunately, history teaches its lessons to only those willing to learn, and the banking oligarchy, our government, and a large portion of Americans have shown no signs of having such willingness. So let’s start singing bye-bye, Miss American Pie, war is nothing but a bad way to die!

I might add it’s also a damn good way to get richer and expand their control over the little minds of their voluntary slaves. Yea, war is a racket alright, and the scum of the earth love it. People need to realize that War is always a fool’s errand in pursuit of ephemera. 

The most incredible thing about all of this is the continuing ignorance of so many Americans who still are completely unaware that all of these so-called justified wars are a cover for the real war on American freedom. A free society cannot be CONTROLLED OR OWNED. All that’s needed to own everything, is to destroy the populations ability to control the value of their currency.

Quote of the Day: “All substances are poisons: there is none which is not a poison. The right dose differentiates a poison and a remedy.” — Paracelsus (1493-1541)

The baseball pitcher, Roger Clemens, is in the news. He has been charged with the supposed crime of lying to the politicians in Congress about his use of steroids.

* How should we think about this?
* What are the Constitutional issues involved?

To answer these questions we offer you some imaginary testimony — things Roger Clemens could have said to Congress, instead of what he did say.

* You’ve heard of people “pleading the 5th” — invoking the 5th Amendment’s protection against self incrimination, but . . .
* James Wilson argues that Clemens should have “plead the 10th” — invoking the 10th Amendment’s limitation of federal power.
* You’ll see why when you read the imaginary testimony below.

An earlier version of this was published on Thursday, January 10, 2008, when Clemens was first called to testify before Congress. This slightly edited version makes points that are just as relevant now.

Has anyone ever refused to answer a question from a federal inquisitor on Tenth Amendment grounds? I don’t know, but I’d love to hear it from Roger Clemens when he testifies at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee next month:

“Mr. Chairman, I have read the Constitution and it does not grant you authority to hold a hearing on steroid use. Therefore, I will exercise my rights as an American citizen under the Tenth Amendment, and my natural rights as a human being, by refusing to answer your questions.

“But let me clarify one thing: I do see under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution that Congress has the authority to regulate commerce among the states and with foreign nations. It’s possible that this includes anything that relates to the selling of goods across state lines. I will therefore affirm that . . . More
