As a nation under the U.S. Constitution we are 228 years old. It may surprise readers to learn that for the first 124 of these years we had no federal income tax and handled our expenses quite well. Today those paying may be assessed a fifth to a fourth of their income. Prior to 1913 one kept what is now
Unfortunately Trump’s Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) record, although the best ever in avoiding this globalist influence, is no longer pure. CFR Lieutenant General H. R. McMaster replaced General Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser and Neil M. Gorsuch as U.S. Supreme Court justice, is imminent. Gorsuch was first listed as a CFR member in the 2007 Annual Report and
The power of the “deep state,” the intelligence community’s lock on the secrets of every citizen in the United States, information that used to be only in sensational magazines, is now public knowledge. The March 8, Wikileaks dump of over 9,000 emails, a dump reportedly far larger and worse than the Edward Snowden revelations in 2013. A dump disclosing potential
In the 2016 presidential election the Democrats never used the word republic to describe our political system and Republicans rarely used it, both preferring to use the word democracy. Most people ignorantly refer to our political system as a democracy and have to be reminded that this word is not in the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights,
Within 40 days our national debt is likely to be $20 trillion; four of which is from eight years of George W. Bush and ten from eight years of Barack Obama—the two biggest spending presidents in U.S. History. Obama alone accumulated more debt than all previous presidents put together. See details at www.LibertyUnderFire.org. Still, with all the sophisticated “doublespeak,” as
The Constitution allows only the option of repeal. Dr. Pease shares in great detail why this is so. See full column at www.LibertyUnderFire.org. Anything more would require a new amendment to the Constitution transferring a new power, healthcare, from the states where it resided, to the federal government as per Article V. All power was distributed in 1787. Any rearrangement
A major campaign promise of President Donald Trump was to “drain the swamp” in Washington DC but anyone the least bit familiar with the Constitution as designed by the Founders understands that it automatically does this if adhered to strictly, which neither major political party has done for most of a century. That is why we have the swamp to
The bureaucracy is out of control enlarging itself at every turn. Decades ago Congress got lazy and started creating unelected organizations to administer and create the details of a law, thus thousands of “little laws” (“regs,” short for regulations) emerged—often giving the law a twist never intended by the original bill. A prominent housing contractor once noted that one-third of
Since countries have been slow to forfeit their national sovereignty to the UN, proponents next encouraged regional governments—uniting countries into geographical units, as for example the European Union, then later, when peoples and nations get used to this power transfer, unite them then into a single political unit. Currently there are 23 such regional agreements each at a different stage
For readers who do not understand the international trade deals of the last 25 years, notably NAFTA, GATT and TPP, you will never fully grasp what President Donald J. Trump has just done for the Constitution and against the proponents of globalism. In his first day in office, pulling the United States out of the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership, he
Summary on Use the Constitution to Recover Confiscated State Land Utah stands out in its desire to retain public land not given it when it became a state and in using original intent in interpreting the Constitution, but her leaders do not understand the Constitution well enough to see that the Constitution already corrects the problem if used as designed.
On December 28, 2016, Barack Obama created the Bears Ears National Monument in Southeastern Utah and the Gold Butte National Monument in Nevada just northeast of the outskirts of Las Vegas. He used the 1906 Antiquities Act to set aside 1.35M acres, property larger than the state of New Hampshire. Despite the clarity of the Constitution on land ownership succeeding
Pease explains how Sections 1021-1022 of The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) funding national defense and updated every December, violates Article III, Sections 2 and 3. “No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.” It also emasculates Amendments 4, 5, 6 and 8
On December 31, 2011, New Year’s Eve, President Barack Obama signed into law the most constitutionally damaging law in American history, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. This New Year’s Eve we note its 5th Anniversary. It potentially gutted the Bill of Rights for American citizens thought by the President to be assisting the enemy. This has so upset
