...where real knowledge-- and actual solutions-- intersect with real Americans!

How Many Times Does This Have To Be Said...
...before people who claim to fear the madness and corruption in Washington open their eyes to the singular solution lying before them and actually do something?

LAST WEEK SENATOR RAND PAUL proposed a perfectly sensible-- indeed, obviously appropriate-- amendment to a $40 billion giveaway to Ukraine, which would have required oversight and accountability regarding the disposition of what is, after all, OUR money. Among other things, such oversight might expose how much of the giveaway is sent back in "campaign contributions" and other forms to the pockets of those voting for the handout.

Paul's amendment was defeated, of course-- providing emphasis to the importance of individual Americans being made aware of the liberating, state-restraining truth about the income tax by which so much government corruption and other mischief-- at both the federal and state levels-- are made possible. See this for a quick and easily-shareable summary of how that all works, and how widespread knowledge of the legal realities of the income tax would fix these dire problems.

After sending that linked piece, 'On Shrinking Leviathan', as far and wide as possible, join me in celebrating some recent additions to the hundreds of thousands of victories won by real American heroes acting to shut down the lunacy and corruption since 2003. These good folks, who have simply, but courageously, stood up and withdrawn their support for it all after learning of their right to do so, and how to do so, are liberty's true superstars:

Why Americans Need Weapons Of War
...and have their right to them expressly secured by the US Constitution.

FRANKLY, THE PARENTS BEING PREVENTED from rushing to the aid of their children in Robb Elementary School the week before last, as we all saw afterwards in horrifying cell-phone videos, should have shot or clubbed their way through the cops who stood in their path. Every cop who participated in that blockade should be tried as an accessory to murder, having effectively helped the killer proceed with his crimes unimpeded.

Those are harsh words. But children are dead who needn't be, and as a consequence of a grossly-corrupt distortion of the proper purpose and legitimate authority of government.

Unsurprisingly, the assisted murders of those children and school staff in Uvalde, Texas, are now being exploited by despicable enemies of the rule of law in an effort to further leverage the widespread misunderstanding of the proper purpose and legitimate authority of government that contributed to last week's tragedy. The object is to use the Uvalde shootings as a justification for a renewed assault on the Second Amendment.

If successful, this pernicious effort will eventually accomplish a tragedy of far greater scope, as the ghosts of a few 100 million disarmed victims of government murder during the 20th century will attest.

Let me offer a few points that might help rein in this madness...

I'LL START WITH THE FACT that Constitutions-- federal or state-- are not entrusted for their implementation, interpretation or enforcement to officials elected or appointed to the offices they authorize. Indeed, it is quite the opposite.

The Second Amendment to the US Constitution (and corresponding provisions in state Constitutions), for instance, says that the right of the people to keep and bears arms shall not be infringed. There is no allowance within the provision for legislative or judicial (much less executive) determination of what this means and how, and to what degree, the proscription of infringement is to be honored.

There CAN'T BE any such allowance, nor can one be assumed or implied. The amendment's proscription, after all, is AGAINST government officials.

Constitutions are the law LAID UPON government officials. They are not merely directives as to what government officials should do or should refrain from doing.

"In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution."
-Thomas Jefferson

Those officials, singly or en masse, have no more authority or latitude to determine the scope of their prescriptions or proscriptions than a guy wanting to break into houses has to determine the scope of the burglary laws established by his community.

After all, if government officials, singly or en masse, could determine the meaning of "infringe" or "keep" or "bear" or "arms" or "the people", then the right secured by the Second Amendment would be meaningless.

I guarantee that if I am given the latitude to define any one of those terms, I can strip Americans of that right. And after implementing the consequence of that change, I could then strip Americans of all other rights, unconcerned about resistance.

Monkeypoxmania
by CJ Hopkins

Lock yourselves down inside your homes! Break out the masks and prophylactic face-shields! Switch off what’s left of your critical faculties and prepare yourselves to “follow the Science!”

Yes, that’s right, just as the survivors of The Simulated Apocalyptic Plague of 2020-2021 were crawling up out of their Covid bunkers and starting to “build the world back better,” another biblical pestilence has apparently been unleashed on humanity!

This time it’s the dreaded monkeypox, a viral zoonotic disease endemic to central and western Africa that circulates among giant pouched rats, squirrels, dormice, and other rodents and has been infecting humans for centuries, or millennia. Monkeypox causes fever, headaches, muscle aches, and sometimes fluid-filled blisters, tends to resolve in two to four weeks, and thus poses absolutely zero threat to human civilization generally.

The corporate media do not want to alarm us, but it is their duty as professional journalists to report that THE MONKEYPOX IS SPREADING LIKE WILDFIRE! OVER 100 CASES OF MONKEYPOX have been confirmed in countries throughout the world! MONKEYPOX TASKFORCES are being convened! Close-up photos of NASTY-LOOKING MONKEYPOX LESIONS are being disseminated! The President of the United States says “EVERYBODY SHOULD BE CONCERNED!”

The WHO is calling it “a multi-country monkeypox outbreak!” Belgium has introduced a mandatory quarantine. The CDC has gone to “Alert Level 2!” “Enhanced precautions” are recommended! In New York City, the nexus of probably the most paranoid, mask-wearing, quadruple-“vaccinated” New Normal fanatics on the face of the planet, the Department of Health is instructing everyone to wear the masks they are already wearing to protect them from both Covid and monkeypox, and smallpox, and largepox, and airborne cancer, and God knows what other horrors might be out there!

Here in the capital of New Normal Germany, Karl Lauterbach, who, despite wasting hundreds of millions of Euros on superfluous “vaccines,” attempting to compulsorily “vaccinate” every man, woman, and child in the country, and otherwise behaving like a fascist lunatic, remains the official Minister of Health, is excitedly hopping up and down and hooting like a Siamang gibbon about “recommendations for isolation and quarantine,” and other “monkeypox containment measures.”

As Yogi Berra famously put it, “it’s like déjà vu all over again.”

Except that it isn’t … or it probably isn’t. Before I could even finish this column, the United GloboCap Ministries of Truth started dialing down the monkeypox panic. It appears they’re going with “it’s a gay pandemic,” or an “LGBTQ pandemic,” or an “LGBTQIA+ pandemic,” or whatever the official acronym is by the time I click the “publish” button, and making other noises to the effect that it might not be absolutely necessary this time to order a full-scale global lockdown, release the drones and robotic dogs, inject everybody with experimental drugs, and start viciously persecuting “monkeypox deniers.”

You didn’t really believe they were launching a shot-by-shot remake of Covid, did you? The showrunners at GloboCap may be preternaturally evil, but they aren’t stupid. Only the most hopelessly brainwashed New Normals would go along with another “apocalyptic pandemic” before the current one has even been officially cancelled. No, unfortunately, odds are, we’re just getting a preview of what “life” is going to be like in the New Normal Reich, where the masses will be perpetually menaced by an inexhaustible assortment of exotic pathogens and interchangeable pseudo-pathological threats.

"I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves...too wise not to detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or the selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of mock patriotism: 'Our country, right or wrong!' They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and the peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true patriotism: 'Our country--when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.'"
-Senator Carl Schurz, October 17, 1899
