LESSONS FROM THE BEGINNING III

on May 23, 2019, 6:00 AM / in History, Opinion

(Authors note: Several readers have asked about the importance of covering the fact Madison, Hamilton, and others were pushing a nationalist form of government. This information is critical because the nationalist/monarchical form of government that was introduced and supported by Madison, Hamilton and others was repeatedly defeated, both in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and the subsequent state ratifying conventions.

RECONSTRUCTION CONTINUES 150 YEARS LATER

on February 27, 2019, 6:00 AM / in History, Opinion

One could certainly believe the below quote could be echoed today in any of the 50 states as we are forced to stand and watch as a totally unconstitutional, tyrannical and oppressive government goes about destroying what little is left of this once proud country. But what are the chances one would hear these words from a sitting member of […]

I sent this out to a few select people in advance of posting this here and had a interesting conversation with Mike Gaddy in regards to my interpretation of the second portion of this regarding the 2nd Amendment.

It’s Not the People, It’s the Machine

on June 30, 2018, 6:23 AM / in Opinion

By Michael Gaddy “Government is an agency of force which can and must be employed against every deviationist. And this is only to say again that the government must oppose the individual. Therefore the “good” man in government is like a priest with a machine gun. The mechanism does the harm. The man who operates it merely pulls the trigger.” ~Robert LeFevre, […]

SECOND VERSE SAME AS THE FIRST

on November 19, 2016, 7:51 AM / in Opinion

“The value of history is, indeed, not scientific but moral: by liberalizing the mind, by deepening the sympathies, by fortifying the will, it enables us to control, not society, but ourselves — a much more important thing; it prepares us to live more humanely in the present and to meet rather than to foretell the future.” ~ Carl Becker, 1873-1945 […]

WE LIVE IN OCCUPIED TERRITORY: IT IS NOT GETTING BETTER

on August 4, 2016, 6:49 AM / in Opinion

Somewhere down the road of history, someone will write of this period in America and make the observation that most of our population had to be either, drugged, delusional or insane, for this alone could explain people who hold tightly to several conflicting ideas at the same time and others who were so mentally weak they require a “safe” place […]

NO FUNERAL FOR THE PRINCIPLES OF LIBERTY

on July 23, 2016, 8:50 AM / in Opinion

“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” ~ Mark Twain Recently, I read somewhere that there were no funerals for the dead principles of Liberty. Obviously, the author of this statement has never watched a political convention. Where else can one see an event which costs millions […]

“The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” ~ Albert Einstein Imagine with me for a minute: it is April 19, 1942, you have heard on the radio of the Doolittle raid on Tokyo.

MEMORIAL DAY REALITY CHECK

on May 31, 2016, 6:40 AM / in News

In early October of 2003, I wrote an article titled “The Destruction of the US Military” which was published at the Price of Liberty. At that time, I doubt very few people outside the city of Chicago or the country of Kenya had ever heard of Barack Obama. The war in Afghanistan had been going on for two years and the […]

on May 16, 2016, 6:53 AM / in Opinion

*Author’s note: With the recent events surrounding allowing perverts and sexual deviants unfettered access to potential victims now being dictated by the central government as vividly seen with the lawsuit against North Carolina for having a governor and a legislature with the courage to just say no to a tyrannical central government, I thought back to this article I had […]

We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false. – William Casey, Ronald Reagan’s first CIA Director (from Casey’s first staff meeting, 1981) On September 18, 1947, the National Security Act became law. This new law created multiple layers of unaccountable bureaucracies that have controlled our government since that date. Among those new bureaucracies were […]

TRUMP COULD HAVE SAID…

on April 6, 2016, 9:29 AM / in Opinion

I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the mayhem of this presidential campaign season. The forces that have combined in an attempt to derail a Trump phenomenon the Republicans never saw coming is most revealing. The popularity of Trump among those in this country who are beginning to catch on to the political scam of the two major parties has created chaos within […]

“VOTE FOR THE CROOK. IT’S IMPORTANT”

on March 6, 2016, 6:14 AM / in Opinion

A great many Americans continue to be drawn to the battle for the nomination for president in the Republican Party. That Hillary will be the nominee from the left is virtually assured, even if she is indicted in the meantime which is highly unlikely considering the track record of the FBI and DOJ when it comes to dealing with the […]

Imagine with me if you will, it is April 19, 1775 and you are standing with 69 farmers, shopkeepers and others of your militia unit on the Green in Lexington opposing almost one thousand Redcoats who are on their way to Concord to seize the arsenal there. Riding in the lead of the Redcoats is a Royal Marine by the […]

TRIBUTE TO FELLOW REBELS IN ARKANSAS

on January 5, 2016, 6:40 AM / in Opinion

By Michael Gaddy While it is an oft used cliche, “the future belongs to the youth of our country” could never be more relevant than it is today, especially considering the institutionalized ignorance that passes for education throughout our land. In June of 2015, prompted by a galling lack of knowledge of American history, a knee jerk reaction to a […]
