Here we are in February and the elections are heating up. Without a doubt the question that should be the centerpiece of any political debate will never be mentioned—-why? Because to explore this area would be to expose the candidates for what they are: hand puppets who repeat canned dialogue, as was seen with Marco Rubio, who will take their marching orders from the power cabal that has been running this country at least since 1947.
Immediately after being elected, the victorious candidate will take a sacred oath to uphold and defend the Constitution against “all enemies foreign and domestic.” If these elected officials were to follow their oath, the office holder would be immediately obligated to charge himself/herself, the majority of politicians, and elected and appointed officials throughout our country with treason. The Oath is the only enforceable mechanism there is in our form of government. Once the Constitution is violated, the elected or appointed official immediately becomes a domestic enemy to freedom and Liberty and a violator of a Sacred Oath. ~ Mike
“‘Tis not the many oaths that makes the truth, but the plain single vow that is vow’d true.” ~ William Shakespeare, All’s Well That Ends Well
“It is not the firearm in the hands of the Patriot the tyrant fears, it is the spirit of the person who possesses that firearm.”
“The death of the spirit is the price of progress.” ~ Eric Voegelin
The spirit of freedom is a hard thing to explain to anyone who has never felt the inner fire, the yearning to live his or her life according to their own wishes without interference of others whose main objectives in life are money and power over others.
This spirit does not come in small doses, a person cannot be just a little bit free; one either has the love of freedom to full measure or they have it not at all. I once heard a man define a religious zealot as someone who loves God more than others. That self same logic applies to the spirit of freedom; a zealot for liberty loves it more than the person who criticizes that personal trait in others. They love it more than those who seek public office for the sole purpose of exercising dominion and control over others and the enjoyment of the trappings of power. Continue reading

We have moved into what is often referred to as the election cycle. Billions of dollars will be spent with the majority going into the coffers of the media which works diligently to influence the results of elections. That which they cannot influence is left to the electronic voting machines and crooked caucuses such as the one in Iowa. Regardless of who is elected, just as Professor Carroll Quigley stated in his seminal work Tragedy and Hope, we can throw the rascals out as frequently as we wish, but it will not lead to any “profound or extensive shift in policy.”
Mark Twain said “If voting made any difference, they wouldn’t let us do it” and H.L. Mencken said “Every election is sort of advance auction on stolen goods.” Both were absolutely correct, but Americans consistently prove Einstein was correct when he defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.”
Bottom line is this: Our country is led and dominated by a criminal cabal which moves everyday to destroy individual freedom and liberty, to which an insane populace elects new members on a regular basis. ~ Mike Continue reading

What follows below has to do with the attitude expressed by Ewart and many others like him that is preventing all of us from being free.
Years ago I wrote an article I called “comfortable patriotism.” Must have struck some nerves somewhere. Couple of websites refused to publish it and two days later had a black suburban in my yard with Feds wanting to know why I’m anti-government. I explained I was not anti-government, I was anti-corrupt government. Jeff published the article. At the time I did not know him and he did not know me.
Guess it’s time to revisit that subject.
Cliven mounted up for memorial horseback ride.
Thousands yesterday at LaVoy Finicum’s funeral in the small town of Kanab, Utah. Hundreds openly carrying firearms. Service was being broadcast by live feeds until Feds jammed transmissions. Shawna Cox was there with ankle bracelet. Cliven Bundy led the memorial horseback ride after the service. LaVoy’s wife was the epitome of class. LaVoy’s mother and father sat to the left of the casket. Several of his daughters expressed their outrage just off church grounds after the service.
Some in this country see the light at the end of the tunnel we are in is the on rushing freight train of tyranny and oppression. ~ Mike Gaddy
“When it comes to being a true supporter of individual Freedom and Liberty, one cannot be just a little bit pregnant, you either is or you ain’t.”
Governments have created laws to oppress the rights of the people they were tasked to protect.
Possibly the most misunderstood, misapplied, misrepresented word in the English language is the simple three letter word spelled, l-a-w. What or who is the law? How is it to be defined? Who is charged with its application as relates to the citizens of this country? Who is to decide what the law is and what the law is not? Is the law only the tool of the righteous or can it be used for the purposes of abject tyranny? Continue reading
Any American citizen with an IQ higher than the sum of their fingers and toes, has stopped, at some time, under some circumstance, to ask themselves about the legitimacy of the political system under which they live.
It stands to reason most people are steered toward personal involvement in politics, not because they are well served by their government, but, just the opposite, they feel oppressed by that system. The popular thought is: to accomplish “change,” which in their eyes will be for the positive, one must affiliate themselves with either the right or the left paradigm of political thought. Why is it that any “change” by elected officials, of either political persuasion, is always away from the Constitution and Bill of Rights? Continue reading
On many occasions the inspiration for what becomes a Rant can be found in my dimly lit bedroom on the ceiling above my head somewhere near 4 in the morning. Sometimes, like today, the motivation to see that inspiration take shape on my computer screen compels me to the chair where I do my writing. This morning that inspiration was to be found in the form of a dream-like philosophical discussion between two George’s: Orwell and Costanza. If this thought causes my readers to shake their heads, they should re-check the title of this musing. Continue reading
Mesmerized by Obama’s tears, millions of professed Marxist Socialists, Cultural Marxists and institutionalized idiots fell into obedient agreement with their civic god last week and cheered for more “gun control.”
There were a number of “victims” of gun violence present, though no one bothered to comment on who might have paid their traveling expenses to attend another sermon in the round by their socialist savior. Continue reading
NOTE: Submitted to the Federal Observer on December 15, 2015 – it took us some time to start catching up. Read ’em and weep! ~ JB
Approximately 20 years ago, while living on the vast expanse of the high plains of New Mexico known as the Navajo Indian Reservation, my, at-the-time teenage son came to me obviously frustrated. It seems he had spent a considerable amount of time searching for an object with no positive results. After listening carefully to his recitation of all of the efforts he had expended, my advice to him was that as soon as he got home from school that afternoon he should take his rifle and head into the mountains and see if he could find an elephant to shoot. Continue reading
Imagine with me if you will, it is April 19, 1775 and you are standing with 69 farmers, shopkeepers and others of your militia unit on the Green in Lexington opposing almost one thousand Redcoats who are on their way to Concord to seize the arsenal there. Riding in the lead of the Redcoats is a Royal Marine by the name of Major John Pitcairn. The major rides toward your greatly outnumbered force and commands “Disperse ye Rebels, Ye villains disperse.” In just a matter of minutes a shot rings out (a shot heard round the world) and the American Revolution and the birth of our country has begun.

~ Author’s NOTE ~
This part three of my current anthology, an effort to expose the lie of the Lincoln myth and the cause of the War Between the States, was written 13 years ago. I am most honored the people at United Native America’s website have had this article prominently displayed on their website for the entirety of those 13 years. As you read through this piece, (edited for clarity) please pay particular attention to the Declaration of Separation from the Union by the Cherokee Nation in 1861. While this declaration, written by Chief John Ross, is remarkably similar in many ways to the Declaration of Independence of 1776, it also contains Chief Ross’s statement concerning his views of the war up to that date and the atrocities committed by the Union army against citizens of the South. To believe Lincoln was motivated to wage unconstitutional, total war against the South and its civilian population, based on human rights issues such as bondage of the Black race while he simultaneously waged a war of extermination against the American Indian is the height of hypocrisy and incredulity. But, then, there are a very large number of Americans who have assumed the mentality of Seinfeld’s George Castanza when he stated, “It ain’t a lie if I believe it.”
“There were two Lincolns – the myth and the man. The man is dead, the myth lives. The war he made was no myth. The War to Prevent Southern Independence is a cancer in the very living marrow of America.” ~ Charles T. Pace, Southern Independence. Why War?
As previously stated, Slavery was not the reason Lincoln unconstitutionally ordered 75,000 troops to invade the states “in rebellion.” As Lincoln said throughout the beginning stages of the war, his purpose was to maintain the Union.
“My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union …” ~ Abraham Lincoln to Horace Greeley, August 22, 1862. Continue reading
The evidence is irrefutable: the American voter decides who they will vote for almost exclusively from the viewpoint of, “what are you going to do for me in the future” while completely ignoring “what have you done TO me in the past.”
Judged constitutionally, almost all of the current crop of power seekers in both major political parties would have more mug shots in their past than they would photo ops in their future.
There exists an obvious reason none of the candidates are asked questions publicly about how what they propose to do in the future comports with the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Before you fret too much about this fact, understand, it is not done because the people do not demand it; more often than not the people accept it. Continue reading
When one types the words “Southern” and Confederacy” into the Google search engine, he/she is greeted with the information that there are 47,900 links to that subject just a mouse click away. Included are many groups that espouse faithfulness and devotion to all things Southern.
There are sites that seek to educate each and every visitor to the “forgotten” heritage and history of the South. There are national groups and there are regional and state groups. There is an organization that allows only members that can prove their ancestor was a Confederate Soldier. There is a plethora of “Southern” paraphernalia: T-shirts, bumper stickers, flags belt buckles and even bikinis that will exhibit your pride in being a true Southerner. There is a Southern broadcasting station on the Internet that one can tune into and listen to Southern music and inspiring speeches. Many sites are proud to talk of conventions and lectures available for one and all so they can become more knowledgeable of all things prideful to a Southerner. Continue reading
The more I think about the subject of this Rant, the more I realize it has gone far beyond the old adage of “The inmates are running the asylum.” It is much, much deeper than that. 535 politicians and a legion of bureaucrats could not possibly exercise dominion and control over 320 million people without the consent and assistance of a sizable number of useful idiots whom I have referred to in the past as the species “Ignoramus Americanus.”
Yesterday, I was watching, as it is my want to do on occasion, an old episode of the most popular TV show at the time called “Gunsmoke.” In this 54 year old classic Western, an old buffalo hunter had basically gone mad and decided the world was becoming much too modern for him and that to remedy the situation he would just kill all of the settlers who were destroying his image of the plains. The Marshal, Matt Dillon himself, was traveling from settler to settler warning them of the danger of the old hunter and what amounted to acts of terrorism against them. Explicit in his warning was the admonition to “keep your rifles close.” Some of these settlers, having already heard of the threat, were visibly armed. Continue reading
I am frequently asked, especially by one very patriotic lady in Utah, what are the solutions to all of the problems with our government that are illustrated in my writings. My first answer is a very simple one: we must stop doing what we have been doing in the past that has placed us on the road to a totalitarian form of governance. We must look at the things that haven’t worked and may have actually contributed to the problem such as political party affiliation as well as voting, especially for the lesser of evils. Evil at any level is counterproductive to the pursuit of liberty. Continue reading
“The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule.” ~ Samuel Adams
Over the past few years I have discussed with several people whom I admire and respect, two of whom are devout men of God (thanks Parsons), whether or not the organized church of this country is the single greatest threat to liberty outside of the actual government. We agreed that is true. Along this same line of thought I wrote an article a few months back titled “Government as God” which can be found here. If you take the time to read this article, please also take the time to watch and carefully listen to the attached Youtube video in that article narrated by Larken Rose. Continue reading
“The West has never known a Hero like the Killer who commanded Fort Massacre” ~ Taken from the film trailer of the 1958 Western, “Fort Massacre.”
For those of us who have realized that no matter who we vote for, a corrupt government gets elected, the past few days have provided an awful lot of humorous but thoughtful moments. It has been fun to watch the Republican Party continue to implode as their previous demand that Donald Trump not run as a 3rd party candidate begins to backfire and further illustrate there is actually no significant difference between them and the Democrats. As this writer has previously written, one of the strongest supporters of current, stated republican principles is none other than the Democrat front runner, Hillary Clinton. She supports everything Jeb, Marco, Carly, Lindsey Graham, Huckabee and Ben supports, militarily and socially, even more so in many regards.
A couple of days ago, Trump set the media (social and sycophant) on fire with his proposal to stop all immigration of Muslims “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” It certainly appears the entirety of the political world has turned on the “Donald” with many making reference to the same Constitution they have studiously avoided while religiously supporting unconstitutional social issues and unlimited wars.

If the politically correct, constantly offended, Cultural Marxists are to be believed, Thanksgiving weekend in the city of Chicago, a legion of Confederate Battle Flags worked their way through the streets of that city killing 8 and wounding 20. This brought the total of shootings by these offensive flags to 2,700 for the year, in Chicago alone. Absurd you say? Definitely, but if it is absurd, it can be no more so than the claim that same flag is responsible for the deaths in Charleston. S.C. or any other place for that matter.
The Cultural Marxists, complemented by their shills in the media and millions of ignorant people who have joined the Cultural Marxist religion, believing their original sin was being born white have been able to create an atmosphere of emotionalism which totally contradicts historical facts.

“Throw down your guns and come out with your hands up.” ~ Dialog from hundreds of Westerns and the current message from government to its citizens.
Why is it I feel like I’m living in the Twilight Zone and expect to hear Rod Serling start explaining events surrounding the latest mass shooting and the immediate response of government and media personnel exalting more gun control as the only answer before the bodies of those slain have assumed room temperature?
The folks doing research for Harvard and Northwestern universities claim the rate of mass shootings has tripled since 2011. Of, course there are the political opportunists, especially those clothed in conservative garb, who claim Obama is responsible for this increase. Ah, but it’s not the people; it’s the machine.

(Why we will never be free)
For the best part of 20 years now I have been writing the thoughts that keep spilling out of my head due to the frustration encountered as I watch people ignore the possibility of actually being free and their insane addiction to being ignorant but entertained and enslaved.
During those years I have used comments received from some who happen to read my Rants to see if there is still a faint pulse in the cadaver called Liberty that folks like Jefferson, Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry breathed life into some 220+ years ago. Judging from some of the comments received from my last article, it’s past time to shovel dirt in the face of that old lifeless form of individual rights and self determination. Continue reading

Author’s NOTE: I continue to be flabbergasted at how many people in this country call for demonization of all things Southern and the removal of all images and symbols of the South based on lies and distorted history. Therefore, I again intend to do several articles offering historical proof of the righteousness of the cause of the South and those brave men who made the ultimate sacrifice for the cause of liberty from 1861 to 1865.)
In the summer of 1787, in Philadelphia, the convention nearly failed over the concern of all present on how to prevent a section, group of states, (larger v smaller) a faction, (slavery v antislavery) or special interest group from taking over control of the government that would see its birth in that convention. This discussion held center stage for weeks and at times appeared it would be the factor that led to the breakup of the convention and possible disunion. Continue reading
In a discussion last evening with a reader of my work a person who is obviously concerned with the direction in which our country is traveling said he was in basic agreement with my assessment of the problems we see in our country today but he took me to task for not offering viable solutions. I told him that I was in many cases reluctant to do so because I sense the great majority of people are unable to realistically look at solutions because they are hopefully addicted to the source of our problems and therefore will not consider the possibility of quitting “cold turkey.” Continue reading
“Some have said that the individual is important and the government is merely the servant of the individual. But, let the evidence be presented and we discover that this assertion is only a pleasant fiction. The servant has the power and the strength. The individual bows before the might of the servant, who is, despite the platitudes, a master, not a slave to men. Governments rule. Individuals are ruled.” ~ Robert LeFevre
The above words are terribly hard for most people to digest. We claim over and over our individual rights and proclaim how government is subject to “consent of the governed.” This is all a mere pipe dream. As long as the majority continues to toil under the misconception that individuals actually have rights that supersede the wishes of the government, we will continue to be slaves to the wishes of the autocratic minority.
Governments do what all governments throughout history have done; governments continue to increase in size and power over any efforts by individuals or groups of individuals acting as factions or political parties. Political parties exist not to fight for the rights of the people they claim to represent but instead work tirelessly and endlessly to grab a larger portion of the government power pie. To political parties it matters little the destination of the bus called government, the only important issue is that their party gets to drive. Continue reading
“It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane.” ~ Philip Dick VALIS
It appears France has closed its borders—perhaps 25 years too late for those who were killed and wounded yesterday and their families.
What event and massive loss of life here will it take before we close our borders, bring our military home and truly protect our freedoms? But, the cry from the zombies who regurgitate the words of those who want to destroy the culture of this country will continue. Leaving our borders open is a “humanitarian” mandate they will claim just as the leaders in Europe have been claiming for decades, Merkel and Hollande are certainly good examples. Continue reading
The Mad Man
Yesterday, Veterans Day, I wrote of my concerns on the adulation and “supporting” of the troops when the government does not in turn support them. To confirm my point I offered several examples.
From some of the replies to my posting, I see there are those who simply cannot separate their emotional need to support the troops from the fact the troops are also culpable for the crimes of our leaders in that our leaders initiate and conduct illegal, unconstitutional wars but members of the military are the tools used to implement their plans. Continue reading
“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.” ~ James Madison
Has anyone noticed that it is most probably impossible for a candidate for president to win the election if they do not fully support war? Should this be a window into who is running this government and for what purposes? All candidates fully support “armies, debts and taxes” even if they are the “known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.”
We embark upon another day of adulation and undisguised worship for those who fight this government’s wars. Almost everyone believes that we must “support the troops” for to do otherwise would be unpatriotic. Anyone with a basic understanding of the Constitution and the tenets of the charges at the Nuremburg trials must realize that our government, for the past 14 years, has been fighting illegal wars. As of yet, I have been unable to have anyone explain to me how one can support the troops without supporting these wars. Continue reading
The Mad Man
I am now more than ever convinced the America I grew up in during the 50s and 60s has long since disappeared from the landscape of history and has instead been replaced with an Orwellian bizzaro world.
Just this morning, I saw on TV that a father in Albuquerque (citizen) who removed his son from a hospital because he believed the care his son was receiving was flawed or substandard, could face criminal charges for child abuse and endangerment. At the same time, I cannot forget the images of a Richland County S.C. cop (government employee) violently removing a young female high-school student from her desk and throwing here to the floor and thrusting his knee into her back. I can find no record this badge-toting he-man was ever charged with any crime, although I am sure the citizens of that area will in due time be forced to ante up millions to settle the inevitable lawsuit.

Once you get on the cog train, you can never get off?
“The existence of the secret government was so closely held that Congress was completely bypassed.” ~ James Bamford
Should anyone trust a man former president Richard Nixon once praised as “a ruthless little bastard?” What if this man teamed up with another lifelong politician who stated emphatically, “Principle is OK up to a certain point, but principle doesn’t do any good if you lose the nomination?” These two men experienced tremendous influence in the power politics of our country for decades. Continue reading
Author’s NOTE: In preparation for my Freedom Class on November the 7th, I quickly began to realize I have much more material than can possibly be presented in a 4 hour class. Therefore, I will cover some of the themes in a couple of Rants and save the “really good part” for the class and those who will be able to attend. There has been, among a group of politicians in our country, a plan to completely subvert the Constitution which dates back to the 1970s. Part of the class will be to illustrate how this was done over a period of 40 years and in fact has been accomplished. This country has not operated under the rules of the Constitution for over 14 years now, but instead has been run by a “shadow government” of the very few who are accountable to no one. (M.G.)
