standing up

The following information came to me from several sources. These people had the temerity to stand before unconstitutional, illegal, immoral taking of property by government for the benefit of the ruling elite. We need people like them. We need to encourage and support those who stand against tyranny. For reference, I also repost a few relevant parts of the Constitution under which the feds are supposed to be limited in their scope. -Ted The Bill of Rights Amendment I Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for […]

dangerous man

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.” — H. L. Mencken (1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic

Is There a Limit

to the Government Abuse Americans Will Accept? Paul Rosenberg www.freemansperspective.com Any student of history learns that people will put up with horrific government abuse before they do anything about it. And so I’ve been watching for years, waiting to see how much abuse the Western world, and Americans in particular, will accept from government before they admit that they’re being abused. In dark moments, I’ve even wondered whether this time was different, whether the natural human reaction against pain had somehow been eliminated. People in the past have rebelled against far less. But I’ve also come to understand we have, in our times, a unique driver of compliance. By that, I refer to the most sacred of our public idols, […]

Over 5 million American children have a parent in jail

from RT.com A new report examining the devastating toll of incarcerated parents on children, families and their community has found that over five million children have a parent in jail, leading to poor education outcomes, economic strife and psychological problems. “The saying is all too familiar: Do the crime, do the time. But in America’s age of mass incarceration, millions of children are suffering the consequences of their parents’ sentences and our nation’s tough-on-crime practices,” stated the report, A Shared Sentence released on Monday by The Annie E. Casey Foundation. Over a period of four decades, the report found that the number of children with a father in prison or jail at some point in their childhood rose by 500 […]

sanctioned grand thefts

When a SWAT team does a middle-of-the-night raid, everyone is tossed around naked, or in their bedclothes. Resistance is normally fatal (that’s what these guys practice for), and most importantly, there is nobody to call for help. Turns out these are quite common, but not the only way government confiscates your stuff. Thanks to the cover provided by “THE WAR ON DRUGS”, every police agency, and even numerous non-police agencies, can take your stuff IF THEY FEEL LIKE IT. Roadside, bedside, at your place of business, or wherever they feel like attacking, they can come scoop up your stuff and keep it… no provocation necessary. This is politely called “Asset Forfeiture”. It applies to anyone government agencies feel like applying […]
