The Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013 (H.R. 2959) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Congressmen Richard Nugent (R-Fla.) and Jim Matheson (D-Utah). The bill would allow any person who is not prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm under federal law and who has a valid, concealed firearm permit to carry a concealed handgun in any state that issues its own residents permits to carry concealed firearms. Persons carrying a handgun in another state pursuant to H.R. 2959 would be subject to the laws of that state with respect to where concealed firearms may be carried. Similar legislation to H.R. 2959 passed the U.S. House of Representatives in 2011 by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 272-154. Continue reading
“Power, without honor or trust, is tyranny.” – Ron Ewart, national author and speaker
FOREBAR: Ladies and gentlemen. We have received some complaints recently that we are being too tough, strident and caustic in our articles. We submit that we aren’t being tough enough. The fact is, if we are not stirring your blood, we aren’t doing our job. If Americans are so timid and afraid of government that they don’t want to hear the truth and from that truth, challenge the government, at any level, then America has absolutely no chance of saving itself ….. from itself. Fear paralyzes and renders the fearful impotent. Fear is the worst enslaver of all. If you fear the government, local, state, or federal, then we strongly suggest you don’t read our articles. From our perspective the government, at all levels, has become arrogant, abusive and tyrannical and is fair game, especially to those of us with courage, a free mind and an indomitable spirit.

One of the major evils of the welfare state in libertarian eyes is that it destroys the concept of objective law (i.e., equal rights under the law) throughout society. This is because the welfare state is based upon the violation of individual rights in order to convey privileges to special interest groups. All primary policies of state welfarism entail such a violation and conveyance. This is why justice can never be achieved under a welfare state philosophy, liberal or conservative. Continue reading
Pissing in the wind is a slang term used to describe someone who is wasting their time, or effort, on a cause that is futile. That’s how I feel sometimes…no…pretty much all the time. I see what is happening in the country I love and I wonder why there are but a few others who see it too.
If you watch any of the network news agencies I’m sure you have, at one time or another, seen the news anchor report on poll numbers which state the percentage of people who think that our country is heading in the right direction. Unfortunately what most people consider as being the right direction is directly tied to their party affiliation and has absolutely nothing to do with our countries adherence to the principles it was founded upon.

In the early days of the Syrian uprising-turned civil war three years ago, the writing on the wall of it becoming an intricate regional and international conflict was there for all to see. Palestinians in Syria were likely to find themselves a pawn in a dirty war, but few could have predicted the magnitude of the crisis, and perhaps, few cared.
Despite their many differences, there are two common denominators that unite all the parties involved in the Syrian conflict. One is that they are all contributing, directly or otherwise, to the killing of Syrians with unmitigated impunity, savageness even. And, two, in the same breath, they all pose as defenders of the Syrian people. It is not a puzzle, but the nature of dirty conflicts. Continue reading
Fresh home from my latest stay in the hospital and you guessed it boys and girls, not a damned thing has changed.
The same bunch of bozos are still trying scare you and me into donating to send blast faxes to all the elected clowns telling them to back off of the gun grab legislation that O-idiot is pushing.
In case you are just plain thick headed let me explain it to you, it does no good to send letters and faxes to those jackasses in Cesspool D.C. they haven’t listened so far, so what makes you think they will listen now?
The only thing that might get their attention on this matter is their minions looking down the wrong end of a gun barrel when they come to your house to attempt to confiscate your legally owned weapons. Continue reading
There are times when I cannot determine who is more stupid – politicians and their enforcers of unconstitutional acts, or the people that allow them to deny us our God-given right of free will; our inherent, inalienable rights of freedom – seemingly a forgotten concept.
In regard to politicians, Lenin called these wannabes within towns, cities, and states “useful idiots”. Why such a description? Well, it is because that is exactly what officials and their enforcers are.
But, useful to who or what? Are they useful to the people? You decide. As we all should know, there is a time when they appear to be and that is when they are campaigning in an election to get or keep their positions. This is as if the election and counting of votes is honest and above board. In the case of electronic and other falsified voting, “acting” is the name of the game. Thus, one must always look at what one does rather than what one says he or she will do. Continue reading
How often have we told our readers that the Democratic Party is the party of Communism and Socialism? How many times have we noted the Marxist philosophy of Obama, of Hillary, et al?
Now, the Communist Party USA has stepped from the shadows and openly admitted their involvement with the American left including the Democratic Party and Obama.
They have announced their decision to aid the Democrats in holding on to the US Senate in the upcoming November election. Continue reading
Back in December one of my predictions for the year was inflation. This has occurred without fail so far with the foods. The only question I have now is trying to determine the extent of food inflation we will see this year.
If any doubts that food inflation is here, they don’t do the grocery shopping. I think we will see around 57% food inflation in 2014. If so, that is going to place a lot of folks into or close to hunger. From what I see of the prices so far and the coming shortages, I don’t doubt that this much food inflation can happen this year. In terms of USDs (United States Dollars) this means for a family that now spends $10,000 on food that same food is going to cost $15,700. $10,000 sounds like a lot for food. That comes to $192.30 a week. A lot of families spend this much each week total on food and drink.
There are some positive things that can be done to soften the food inflation of 2014. Continue reading
You received years of specialized training in a field that you’re passionate about. You’ve decided to work in an area of the country where you feel you can make a difference. You have a family, and you’re primarily concerned about helping other families thrive. But at every turn, the state is enacting more barriers to your professional success. Your job options are limited because you’re not welcome in some American communities. And sometimes, protesters show up outside of the home you share with your children, shouting that they hate the work you do.
You’re on the front lines of the abortion wars. Continue reading
A few days ago, a prominent attorney asked me a question: can religious liberty and the growing demands of government and others occupy the same space? And if not, who wins?
This is, perhaps, not quite the right question.
Dr. Hannibal Lecter, aka “Hannibal the Cannibal” in The Silence of the Lambs asked a more fitting one:
“First principles, Clarice. Simplicity. Read Marcus Aurelius. Of each particular thing ask: What is it in itself? What is its nature?”
Most pundits observing what has gone on recently in Arizona and other states regarding same-sex marriage have concluded, “We are witnessing a clash between religious and civil liberties.” While many nod their heads in agreement, this analysis is wrong. Continue reading

Now that our society has officially lowered us all to the level of rutting rabbits, the Coalition for Positive Sexuality is specifically targeting and encouraging promiscuous sex, abortion, and homosexuality to young teenagers. The Younger the Better should be their slogan.
Funded by the homosexual lobby (and perhaps finally putting the myth that there is no homosexual agenda to rest) CPS is aggressively pushing its agenda of more sex/no guilt/no consequences to young and impressionable children at public schools nationwide. The greatest concession to personal responsibility and self-restraint that they attempt is to urge you to try and not catch a STD.
It is a good example of the alliance between the homosexual and Feminista movements. Anything to undermine traditional morals and values and the traditional family structure that they jointly regard as their greatest enemy. Continue reading
Doctors are leaving private practice to become employees of hospitals, according to this story in the New York Times. The decline in private practice physicians actually began a few years ago when changes to Medicare forced many physicians who practiced individually or in small group offices to make the move to a salaried position in a hospital.
But there is no doubt that Obamacare has exacerbated the problem. The onerous recordkeeping is one big reason why private practice physicians are becoming extinct. Private physicians can’t afford the extra employees to meet the demands of Obamacare paperwork.
Dr. Paul Hsieh explained on the rollout of Obamacare:
The second component of Big Medicine is the shift of doctors away from independent private practice and towards becoming hospital employees. Doctors face many of the same pressures as hospitals. As eWeek reported, “Doctors are abandoning their private practices to join large health organizations so they can lower their costs and meet government mandates on electronic health records.”
By becoming hospital employees, doctors lose autonomy, but enjoy more regular hours and a more predictable salary. In return, hospitals gain access to a guaranteed supply of patients from their employee-physicians. Last year the Washington Post reported, “[T]he number of physicians who own their firms dropped from 57 percent in 2000 to 43 percent in 2009, and it’s projected to continue falling to 33 percent by 2013.” As oncologist Patrick Cobb recently told CNN, “We have a joke that there are two kinds of private practices left in America. Those that sold to hospitals and those that are about to be sold.” [...] READ MORE
Julie London he ain’t!
I’m wearing a ridge in my skull from scratching my head over the dichotomy of Barack Obama being our worst, most unlawful president in history, yet Congress appeases him and allows him to carry out his most diabolical schemes.
Wasn’t it Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, a Republican, who recently killed the bill to restore veterans benefits?
It seems like when any time Obama’s opposition does anything, it’s always the wrong thing and they make Obama look good.
What’s up with these guys, millions of inquiring minds want to know.
What happened to the men in our country, but more importantly, what happened to the statesmen who swore an oath to protect our interest? Continue reading
“All lawful authority, legislative and executive, originates from the people.” ~ James Burgh
“Life, liberty and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.” ~ Frederic Bastiat
It is no small wonder that our Constitution and Bill of Rights are so greatly misunderstood in this era of the dominance of the Public Fool System and the almost complete lack of intelligent discourse on the subject by the majority of Americans.
The questions abound: Is it a “living document” or is it a dead letter? Is it outdated and in severe need of being amended or is it still relevant in our electronic age? Most of these questions and statements emanate from either a misunderstanding of the meaning of words or a complete ignorance of the intent of the majority of our founders and the state delegates who voted to ratify. Continue reading
With all of the reports coming out of Ukraine, Moscow, Washington, and European capitals, the mutual accusations, the knee-jerk speculation, and not least the hysterical language of some observers, bordering on the apocalyptic, it is difficult to keep in mind the long-term implications of what is happening. Nevertheless, I believe that nobody can understand the likely outcomes of what is happening unless they bear in mind the historical, geographic, political and psychological factors at play in these dramatic events. The view of most of the media, whether Russian or Western, seems to be that one side or the other is going to “win” or “lose” Ukraine.
I believe that is fundamentally mistaken. If I were Ukrainian I would echo the immortal words of the late Walt Kelly’s Pogo: “We have met the enemy and he is us.” Continue reading
The government’s “War on National Security Journalists” increasingly seems to be more than a political slogan and more like an aggressively asserted campaign. Employing Soviet era tactics of surveillance, censorship, and outright oppression, the First Amendment is under attack from a hostile U.S. government that tolerates no opposition.
The latest crack down on free speech in America reached epic proportions, when the creators of “Conrad the Constitution,” Tim and Jay Fox, were strong-armed by the Secret Service for creating a “South Park” like animated series on YouTube. The Season two episode eight season finale that prompted the Secret Service to visit their home as well as their parent’s home is entitled “After a series of unfortunate events, Conrad and Baldy (the eagle) must assassinate Obama to save America.” While the series illustrates the Fox Brothers dark humor, Tim Fox explained the episode was hatched to spark discussion about the shredding of America’s Constitution.

On the inaugural edition of the weekly Breitbart News Saturday show on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 from 10 AM to 1 PM EST, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said he decided not to run for the U.S. Senate largely because he wanted to fight against amnesty legislation. He warned amnesty opponents that advocates may try to sneak through legislation in the lame-duck session of Congress later this year. Continue reading
