victory in Idaho

VICTORY: Idaho Legislature Votes to Nullify Federal Gun Control All across the country, we’re seeing states begin to fight back against federal overreach. States are using nullification, a method of undermining federal law by preventing state resources to go towards its enforcement, as a way to effectively gut the unconstitutional measures passed by Congress. This is happening with policies like Obamacare, NDAA, and federal gun control. Idaho’s legislature just joined the fray to push back against future federal gun control measures by unanimously passing a bill that would prevent the state’s officers from going towards the enforcement of any measure that would disarm the citizenry. The bill, which contains an “emergency” provision that means it would go into effect immediately, […]

The Nuremberg Principle

from Zero Aggression Project It applies to crimes large and small The Nuremberg Trials established that . . . Legislation is not the same as law Legislation must be moral to be lawful “Government” actions that violate moral rules are criminal This applies not only to the large crimes committed by villains like the Nazis, but also to the smaller crimes committed by your own “government.” Whenever “the government” threatens or initiates force against innocent people, it violates the moral law, no matter what the legislative “law” may say. To show empathy for the victims of this criminality, start applying the Nuremberg Principle where you live. Share this idea using the social networking buttons at left. Join ZAP by subscribing […]

standing up from the bench

After decades of packing the benches with judges who Go Along with the administrations in power, having one slam them down on something this important is a wonderfully pleasant surprise. It is actually a bit courageous on the part of judge Kathleen Forrest. This certainly will not do her career any good, and carries some actual physical risk in an era of unrestrained police state power. While we do our best to not think about it much, we know that the NSA, CIA, IRS, DHS, FBI, ATF alphabet soup is illegally, unconstitutionally collecting data, planting evidence, SWAT-raiding “the wrong home”, disappearing people, “assisting” suicides, not to mention droning at will nearly anywhere in the world. Either Judge Forrest isn’t thinking […]

Yawn. Another Big Drug Bust

by Jacob G. Hornberger U.S. officials and the mainstream press are going gaga over the latest drug kingpin to go down. This one’s name is Joaquin Guzman Loera, aka El Chapo, described by the New York Times in a front-page story today as “the world’s most wanted man – the chief executive of what experts describe as the world’s most sophisticated narcotics enterprise, the Sinaloa cartel.” The mainstream press is calling the arrest a “major victory in the fight against drug gangs in Mexico.” U.S. officials, whose drug-war forces helped capture Guzman, are now seeking his extradition to the United States to stand trial for violating U.S. drug laws. All of this ballyhoo might well have an effect on […]

evening news

We really enjoy our evening news. It isn’t the crap that half the households in the USofA are fed by the mainstream media monopoly. It comes from much more accurate and honorable sources. It takes a bit of time to ferret them out, but well worth it. I mean, do you want well presented lies or a slightly less splashy truth? Striding the middle ground is The Keiser Report We always enjoy Max and Stacey – they honestly make us smile in spite of the oftentimes sick, grim news they are delivering. After all, the news isn’t always news to us, but their perspective is fresh, honest, clever and, the fun part, caustic. Their January 9th report was a peach. […]

Constitution? What Constitution???

In the news today, U.S. District Judge Edward Korman has FAILED an IQ test, FAILED to do his job and FAILED to uphold his oath of office. The people of New York should fire him and put him on trial for treason among several other charges. USofA Constitution 4th Amendment The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

shocker: judge with normal IQ

Federal judge says NSA’s phone surveillance program is likely unconstitutional A federal court judge in Washington, DC ruled Monday that the United States National Security Agency’s controversial practice of routinely collecting the telephone records of millions of Americans may run afoul of the US Constitution. Judge Richard Leon of the US District Court for the District of Columbia wrote in an opinion released on Monday that plaintiffs who filed suit against the NSA in June have standing to challenge the spy agency’s program that collects telephony metadata pertaining to millions of Verizon subscribers every day. The plaintiffs, led by conservative legal activist Larry Klayman, challenged the NSA in court six months ago when they filed a lawsuit calling into question […]

incompetent frog boiling

Attached below is an excellent article and call to action from highly respected Gun Owners of America. It discusses what just happened in the Senate to enable packing the federal courts with destructive agenda-driven rulers instead of honorable administrators of justice. For 220 years, the filibuster has stood in the way of a majority in the USofA Senate ramming bad and awful choices through over the top of more honorable contemporaries. One senator with a spine could stand off the entire Senate until the public came to his side to get the rest to back down. That option died last week. While it is really awful news, it is also good news. Since 1800, the forces of totalitarianism, of one-world-government […]

Montana law before supremes

Americans ‘collecting torches, pitchforks’ over feds’ arrogance Montana lawsuit plaintiff tells Supreme Court justices to rein in Washington The plaintiff in a Montana lawsuit has written an open letter to members of the U.S. Supreme Court, where his case soon is to be appealed, pleading with them to rein in the federal government’s arrogance and conceit. The letter from Gary Marbut, president of Montana Shooting Sports Association and author of “Gun Laws of Montana,” actually described the problem as the “overweening federal power,” and that’s defined as “overconfident, conceited, cocksure, cocky, smug, haughty, supercilious, lofty, patronizing, arrogant, proud, vain, self-important, imperious and overbearing.” Sound like Washington? “The natives are beyond restless,” Marbut wrote to the justices. “They are at […]

the law wins a round

Liberty in Liberty County! On October 31, 2013, Sheriff Nick Finch won his case at trial in Liberty County, Florida. The charges were complete nonsense to begin with, and the laughter in the courtroom was difficult to suppress as the prosecution presented its flimsy, farcical case. Sheriff Finch was charged and arrested and booked into his own jail last June. Sheriff Finch had done something nearly unheard of, yet noble and courageous. He nullified the arrest of a law abiding citizen who had the audacity of carrying a gun in his pocket. Sheriff Finch said “not on my watch.” So the State moved in, arrested the Sheriff and re-arrested the citizen, Mr. Parish. The end result was Finch was […]

free press on trial

America’s Free Press hangs on Barrett Brown   October 22, 2013. Dallas. Everyone’s heard of Jeremy Hammond, Edward Snowden and Aaron Swartz. But few Americans know who Barrett Brown is. That’s no accident. The Obama administration is desperate to keep the details of his criminal trial secret. And if AG Eric Holder’s prosecutors win their criminal case, America will no longer have a Free Press. Share If this is the end of America’s ‘Free Press’, then this is the fight that will decide it. Brown has been sitting in a federal prison in Texas for over a year awaiting his trial. At first, America’s corporate-owned media outlets did what they always do – they parroted the government line that Brown […]
