One would be hard pressed to argue the fact that we are perhaps the most “entertained” people on the planet. Almost everyone I know, myself included, owns at least a couple of electronic “devises” whose primary function, in most cases, is used as some form of entertainment. One can watch sports, TV episodes, play games and access other venues of entertainment on their personal phones. Watching young people would also reveal the fact we have some of the most dexterous thumbs in the world. Continue reading
On Wednesday, February 26, 2015, Mr Anthony Bosworth of Yakima, Washington was detained by the U.S. Marshall service in Spokane, Washington.
What was his crime? He committed no crime. Mr Bosworth was openly carrying a rifle on federal property. It is not a crime to open carry on federal property; it is a crime to enter a federal building with a gun. Continue reading
“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” ~ John Adams
America is not a democracy, it is a democratically elected Republic. We elect those who represent us democratically, i.e. via a majority vote. That’s as far as we go as far as being a democratic society. The power and authority these elected representatives wield while serving the people are limited and defined by a Constitution, with certain rights being placed beyond their reach in a Bill of Rights which they cannot touch.
A republic can only survive as long as the electors, We the People, hold true to the principles that are contained with a nation’s constitution. The moment the people begin to disregard those principles a nation begins to transform from a republic into a democracy. In a democracy the majority always gets what it wants. It has been said that a democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what is for dinner. I prefer to think of it as a society in which the rights of any one group might be lost simply because a majority votes them away. Continue reading
Dateline: March 1, 2015
This past eight months have gone by, and I owe our readers an apology.
On June 23rd, 2014 I moved into my son’s home in Phoenix, Arizona, with the intent of a two month clean-up, paint and minor repair renovation. The purpose: To resell the home at a fair and comfortable profit for the kids. It sure beat selling it for less that what they had paid but two years earlier.
The intent of well laid plans wasn’t meant to be. In a few more days I will be witnessing my ninth full moon in this place, which I now recognize as Heaven on Earth. For those who regularly listen to my daily broadcast, this project has turned into one of total restoration of a home that was built sometime before 1955 and 1962. The jury seems to be out on that one as of yet – but we’ll get it figured out. Continue reading
The Republicans in the U.S. Congress are petrified with a possibility of impeachment of black president because he is black. They do not want to appear racist in whatever they do to him. Continue reading
It just boggles my mind that people cannot see what is going on in this country with regards to the never ending battle to deprive us of our right to keep and bear arms. How I wish that people had an internal switch that they could flip to turn off their emotions and examine the facts without emotion getting in the way. But unfortunately, Samuel Adams was correct when he said that “Mankind are governed more by their feelings than by reason.” Therefore any argument in support of less gun control is bound to fail because it will be confronted with the argument that you support more public shootings and more children dying. You could provide mountains of factual evidence and have it logically arranged to arrive at a desired conclusion yet you will lose your argument because you cannot defeat the people’s overwhelming desire to be safe and secure from ‘gun toting crazy people.’
Yet that cannot cause me not to try and force feed some logic to your illogical arguments, can it? Continue reading
(*Note: The following are excerpts of letters and personal diary entries written by General George S. Patton in 1945. They are taken from “THE PATTON PAPERS” published by Houghton Mifflin in 1974. Perhaps we should consider their relevance to today’s world and the circumstances surrounding Patton’s death and the complete socialist/militaristic takeover of our country to date. Especially how the attitudes Patton abhorred have become standard operating procedure in our government today.) ~ M.G.
PATTON DIARY, MAY 18, 1945
“In my opinion, the American Army as it now exists could beat the Russians with the greatest of ease, because, while the Russians have good infantry, they are lacking in artillery, air, tanks, and in the knowledge of the use of the combined arms, whereas we excel in all three of these. If it should be necessary to fight the Russians, the sooner we do it the better.” Continue reading
The other night at work I overheard someone ask when our next holiday is. While even I enjoy an occasional day off from work, and a paid one at that, it got me wondering if people just enjoy the day off without ever giving any thought to the true meaning of the holiday they are getting off work for. I’m sure that there are some who think about it, while for others it may just be a momentary flicker of recognition as to why they are getting the day off. Continue reading
When I was growing up as a kid, way before Man of Steel, before Christopher Reeve’s portrayal of him, there was a TV version of Superman with the title role played by actor George Reeves. At the beginning of every episode was the same voice over that repeated the following words, “Superman – defender of law and order, champion of equal rights, valiant, courageous fighter against the forces of hate and prejudice, who disguised as Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American way.”
What did they mean by the American way? Continue reading
“There is not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democrat and Republican Parties” ~ George Wallace, (August 25, 1919 – September 13, 1998)
Arguably, one could state the above quote by the late iconic political figure, George Wallace, was the very epitome of the “separate but equal” legal doctrine that has been used as a political football by the American Oligarchy I have referred to as “Clowns in Black Gowns.” As it has done hundreds of times, the US Supreme Court reversed itself from a previous ruling in Plessy v Ferguson 1896 to Brown v Board of Education in 1953-54. The numerous vacillations of the black robed oligarchs demonstrates vividly our Constitution is subject to the arbitrary political agendas of nine people with questionable agendas and frequently ignores the hundreds who participated in the State Ratification conventions in 1788-89. Continue reading
In the last several months the Department of Homeland Security’s policy concerning the security of our southern border has drastically changed. In a memorandum written on November 20, 2014, by Department of Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson, the latest of our present administration’s interpretation of law is given in detail. Detail, in this case, is relative to interpretation. I asked an attorney friend of mine to read the memorandum and give me his opinion. It is, he said, full of legal terminology and jargon that can be interpreted several different ways. (Jeh Johnson and Barack Obama are both attorneys.) The memorandum can be found on the Department of Homeland Security’s website and the title is, Policies for the Apprehension, Detention and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants. (If they cross the border illegally, they are not undocumented, they are illegal.) The first sentence states the memorandum “reflects new policies for the apprehension, detention and removal of aliens in this country.” It is interesting to note that this supersedes at least five other memorandums written on this subject since Obama became president.

One thing about Chicago that can’t be denied; it’s a corrupt town.
So much so, that violating the law has become second nature to it’s inhabitants, all the way back from Al Capone, to our country’s current Liar In Chief, Barack Obama, and his double axe handled ass wife, Michelle.
They all have a common interest embedded in lies to achieve a desired result, so we really can’t blame Barack Obama for being the worlds biggest bull shitter.
Cheating and lying is endemic to the Chicago political structure. Continue reading
We left off with our previous discussion with the 12 people who met in Annapolis Maryland in September of 1786. We learned that of the twelve, John Dickinson*, a man who had refused to sign the Declaration of Independence and supported England in the Revolutionary War was elected Chairman of that group unanimously. (* It should be noted that John Dickinson also drafted the Articles of Confederation in 1776 and was a delegate to the Convention of 1787 but had a proxy sign the constitution for him.)
We learned this convention had been called because the Congress found no interest in amending the Articles of Confederation as requested by Alexander Hamilton and it was apparent these twelve representatives wished to circumvent the Congress in their desire to “strengthen” the government.

Even the Usurper in Chief acts like a punk from the South Side of Chicaga – taking ‘selfies’ like a thirteen year old.
Exhibit #1: “What I really think of this job.”
Have you ever heard the word fester? Do you know what it means? It can be used in many connotations, but there is one which I would like to take a moment to discuss. In this connotation to fester means “a negative feeling or problem which becomes worse, or more intense, especially through long-term neglect or indifference.” and for those of you who may not know this, indifference is the same as apathy. Festering is what happens when you get a sliver but don’t remove it immediately; it sits there and fills up with puss and may become infected. Continue reading

That’s because this war is a war on small business in America. (Read Full Story)

A few days ago, we received an e-mail containing the story from a doctor who treated a 25-year old illegal alien mother with eight children. The doctor writes:
“Today I had a 25-year old mother with 8 kids – that’s right 8, all illegal anchor babies and she had the nicest nails, cell phone, hand bag, clothing, etc. She makes about $1,500 monthly for each anchor child. You do the math. That is $12,000 PER MONTH. What could you do with $ 12,000 PER MONTH for say the next ten years? Does she pay taxes on that $12,000? Not likely! I used to say, we are the dumbest nation on earth. Now I must say and sadly admit: WE are the dumbest people on earth (that includes ME) for we elected the idiot ideologues who have passed the bills that allow this.”
The Doctor is right of course, whether the story is true or not. Nevertheless, that this kind of thing is happening in America on a massive scale is not in dispute. Sadly, the stories like this one keep growing. There are hundreds more of these legislated injustices inflicted on our tax dollars and they are too numerous to list here. We only need cite Obama’s proposed $4 Trillion dollar budget that is full of pork and massive income redistribution. Continue reading
Every so often a nonfiction book comes along that, because of its objective, comprehensive coverage of a hot topic, should be carefully read with a highlighter in hand by everyone. That new book is “Unprecedented” by David Ray Griffin. Be warned, this book will probably bum you out. It presents the most readable treatment of the global warming and climate change issue that anyone could wish for. It is not an emotional rant, but rather a carefully organized and detailed discussion. Most significantly, with carefully documented sources, it allows a reader to fully appreciate the compelling and overwhelming scientific evidence supporting a negative view of our planet’s and civilization’s future.

“History is philosophy teaching by examples.” ~ Thucydides, The History of the Peloponnesian War
Human consciousness and the ability to understand that which really occurred in the past, is a skill that many people have little experience with mastering. Scholarship and researching the yesteryear relies upon analyzing accounts of others and is usually based on chronicles written centuries ago. Most of the original evidence used in writing the accounts may be lost, based upon oral myths or accurate translations of vanished languages. Even when the original sources are impeccable in their authenticity or go unquestioned in the ivory towers of academic scrutiny, the crucial question still remains, Was It So? Attempts to provide definitive proof, when it comes to explaining political events, relies more often on the art of understanding the connection among factions, based within the context of their intended agendas than smoking gun documents.

On Wednesday January 17, 1979, amidst a group of other young men, I stood in a room in Oakland California and raised my right hand and stated the following words, “I, Neal H. Ross, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…“
I can’t say what was running through the minds of those other young men in the room thirty plus years ago, but I know upholding the Constitution was the last thing on mine. I had recently been laid off due to budget shortfalls in the State of California which caused me to lose a damned good job working for our city’s public works department which had vacation, a pension, and medical. So I was in need of a job, desperate, and running out of options. The military seemed my only option, so I chose the easiest path, the Air Force. As I stood there mindlessly repeating that oath I was thinking more about what I had gotten myself into than about defending a document I had never read in its entirety. Continue reading
There is only one hope to stop the tyrannical rot of statism stealing over our country. We must challenge the Democrat-Republican monopoly of politics that foments the rot.
Is this being redundant? Heard all this before? Perhaps, but our most defiant Founding Father, Samuel Adams, was very redundant in his pursuit of justice. He told his fellows repeatedly: “It does not take a majority to prevail…but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” Irate and tireless are what’s important here. We can save our country only if we patriots (who are the minority) relentlessly challenge the Democrat-Republican monopoly and the egregious falsity it spews out every election year. Continue reading
I know some of the people who read my articles may not be Christian, and therefore some of the things I am about to say may not sit well with them, but these are my views and as long as the First Amendment still retains some of its protection over freedom of speech I intend to keep speaking what’s on my mind. You can take what I say with a grain of salt if you want, but I believe that evil exists, it has a name and a face and it is currently more powerful than ever.
If you have read the Bible what is the first thing you read about man after making their appearance on Earth? It is how the serpent tempted Eve, and how she in turn convinced Adam to eat the forbidden fruit. Their disobedience to God’s command not to eat from the tree of knowledge caused them to be banned from Eden. Whether or not you believe in the Bible as being the word of God literally, the first story, (if you want to call it that), is of how succumbing to evil causes man to lose that which is precious to him.
Fast forward to the Founding of our Republic… Continue reading
“Disinvestment” of fossil fuel holdings is misguided, irresponsible, lethal – and racist

Feckless negotiating with Iran over the past decade, especially these past two years, have burned an image of a miserable Chamberlain-style failure in the minds of the American people, as President Obama and Secretary Kerry have allowed the greatest threat in the 21st century to become our reality. For all intents and practical purposes, Iran is now essentially a nuclear armed missile state, and rather than pursue more negotiations, the at risk nations, such as the United States, Britain, Germany, France and much of Europe and Israel, must seriously consider a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, before its weaponry can be perfected and mass produced. And even then, small nukes handed to Iran’s proxies, Hamas and Hezbollah, will remain a threat, as long as the Ayatollahs hold their iron grip on Iran. Continue reading
“Experience hath shown, that even under the best forms of government, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
Given the Senate confirmation hearings for U. S. Attorney General Obama nominee Loretta Lynch, this article is even more relevant.
U. S. Attorney General, Oath of Office:
“I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter So help me God.”
U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder signed the above Oath of Office when he took office. The reader can decide after reading this article, if Holder has been faithful to his Oath, or is just another crooked politician obsessed with power. Continue reading
On several occasions I have been asked to prepare a reading list for the readers of my Rants. While I am still trying to condense a short list from the many books in my library, I truly believe the following essay should be required reading for anyone whose interests lie in the pursuit of Liberty.
One cannot effectively deal with an enemy if they do not know and understand that enemy. It is important that we realize that we are in a very small distinct minority when it comes to our pursuits. This essay is a great description of how so many become slaves to a despotic government; why they decry its encroachments on one hand and praise its killers on the other.
The fact this essay was written over 500 years ago makes it even more relevant.

Authors note: This will be a multi-part presentation in response to several requests for more information on the founding era of our country, which in many cases is contrary to what we were all taught in history and government/civics classes. It is also beneficial to understand the motives of many at the very beginning of our country. Such motives will provide insight into what our government has morphed into during its existence.
Among us in our country today are those who are strong advocates of an omnipotent, centralized government whose every law must be obeyed and every wish granted without question or discussion, much less dissent. What are the origins of those beliefs? Could it be a desire for a king as one sees in the Scriptures (I Samuel Chapter 8) when the Israelites asked Samuel to “make us a king to judge us like all the nations?” (v 5 SKJV) Was this the first recorded act of people rejecting Natural Law in favor of the laws of man (a king)?

Sabri Samirah, a Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood member exiled from the United States during the Bush administration, has been allowed to return to the country and is now working to foster greater Muslim involvement in U.S. politics.
In Illinois last autumn, Samirah launched UMMA, an organization aimed at furthering the political agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood.
UMMA, more commonly transliterated Ummah, is an Arabic word signifying a community with a common history, and is sometimes used to refer to the worldwide community of Muslims, similar to the way in which some Christians might refer to the worldwide Church. Continue reading
I offer the following thoughts for consideration being fully aware that cognitive discourse in this country has long since been replaced by rampant emotionalism. For several generations, students in the American Gulags have been taught to “feel” while rote memorization of critical material is referred to in the current educational world as “drill and kill.” Children are taught that 2 plus 2 being 4 is not absolute and is subject to rationalization by our betters.

Prior to the summer of 1787 the government of these States united was a joke. It lacked any real authority to enforce the laws it passed and the States went about their business disregarding their responsibility to provide revenue to support it. Also, due to no regulatory ability there were so many varied restrictions and tariffs imposed that trade amongst the States, and with foreign nation’s suffered so much that it almost completely can to a standstill. Something had to be done, and done quickly. Continue reading
“The value of history is, indeed, not scientific but moral: by liberalizing the mind, by deepening the sympathies, by fortifying the will, it enables us to control, not society, but ourselves — a much more important thing; it prepares us to live more humanely in the present and to meet rather than to foretell the future.” ~ Carl Becker, 1873-1945
If a person or political entities goal is to create a strong centralized government which operates basically as an Oligarchy, it will become necessary to disguise those intentions. The best disguise for an Oligarchy is to clothe that form of government with the costume of a Democracy. But, in order to have the masses actually believe they are involved in their own governance, any comprehensive study of history must be perverted or abandoned altogether.
For any government to transform from a government operating with the consent of the governed to a tyrannical and oppressive government directed and controlled by the powerful few, two elements must be created and developed within the governed populace. These elements, though different in composition, must be complimentary in nature. Continue reading
How many of you, (and be honest), when you go to vote know little to nothing about the candidates you are casting your vote for? How many of you just look to see if there is an R or a D next to their name and vote for the candidates belonging to the same political party you do? Is that a fair assessment of how extensively you check a candidate out before electing them to office? Although there probably are exceptions to this rule, I would bet that this is how most people vote. Sure, there may be some who watch the campaign ads and the debates to help them formulate an opinion among candidates of the same party, but I would venture to guess that there are very few who do any kind of extensive research on candidates from the ‘other’ party, or their own party for that matter. Continue reading
What is the point of no return? What could possibly happen to an individual that would cause them to abandon all sense of order and seek instead violent and deadly revenge against another human being or group of people, many of whom are unknown to the perpetrator(s) of violence? Is this human action a devotion to some fanatical practice of religion or simply a reaction to violent stimuli?
If religious fanaticism is the answer, is it possible such religious fervor exhibited in the acts of the “terrorist” creates in its opponent an overwhelming desire to abandon their professed religion? If we are truly fighting a war against radical Islam, is it OK to abandon the tenets of Christianity, a faith professed by the great majority of the so-called conservatives who support the perpetual war for peace paradigm of our government? If that has actually occurred, have the radical terrorists not already won the war? What else could constitute acceptance of the deaths of hundreds of thousands; many of them civilians, to prosecute wars we know are based on lies hatched in the halls of our own government and nurtured to maturity by a state owned and controlled media?

The world is being torched and destroyed by Islam __ the Mother of all totalitarianisms __ and its Koran, the precursor to Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ and “Judenrein”. No matter the terms “moderate” or “extremist”, wherever one looks today, from Niger and the recent burning of seven Christian churches, the Yemeni government’s collapse, seventeen murders in Paris and Christian genocides in Iraq and Syria, Islam is found at the heartless center of these atrocities, as its leaders have stubbornly refused to modify, humanize and reform Islam and reconcile Islam with the modern, civilized world. And the world must not allow Islam to persist. Continue reading
Our last two articles (not including the “Obama Walks the Plank” satire) covered racketeering in the federal government and corruption in the American judicial system. We understand how there might be a Ho Hum response to the information we presented in those two articles because there is so little that the average citizen can do about either one of these issues individually. But when it comes to your children, we hope that what we present here gathers a little more interest.
The greatest gift we can give to our children is not just our undying love and reasonable discipline, but what we teach them and how we oversee what others are teaching them. If you are not interested in how your children are being manipulated, molded and indoctrinated by the public education system, at the behest of government, unions and special interest groups, you are not interested in your children’s long-term well being and future.

The U.S. Government has been caught conducting an insane amount of vile, inhumane and grisly experiments on humans without their consent and often without their knowledge. So in light of recent news of the U.S. infecting Guatemalans with STDs, here are the 13 most evil, for lack of a better word, cases of human-testing as conducted by the United States of America.
Get ready to become one of those conspiracy theory nuts, because after this list, you will never fully trust your government again. Continue reading
It has been impossible to watch any kind of *news program* today without being bombarded with coverage of the B.S. of last night out of WDC.

Let me be perfectly clear from the jump: It was a fine speech, one of the best of President Obama’s political career, which makes it automatically one of the best in the State of the Union’s august history. The last fifteen minutes, in particular, were absolutely soaring, not just in rhetoric, but in the delivery as well. The man parked it as deep as it can be parked, like a majestic David Ortiz line drive deep into the bleachers at Fenway, thanks for coming, turn out the lights when you leave. No one does it better than Barack Obama when the bright lights are on.
…and when it was over, my immediate thought was of Steven the Irishman, the self-declared madman from the film Braveheart. Mel Gibson had just given his rousing speech to keep the Scots from fleeing before the battle at Stirling Bridge.
“Fine speech,” said Steven. “Now what do we do?“
Indeed! (Read Complete Editorial)
