“A nation that is ignorant of its past, is a nation that is ripe for deception and manipulation. Therefore, it is not what happened, but rather what people believe happened which determines the present actions of a nation.” ~ Warriors of Honor
About this time last year, there was much speculation on a projected military operation that would be carried out within the confines of the United States that was being called Jade Helm 15. Here is what the Washington Post had to say about that operation last September.
“The military exercise Jade Helm 15 generated enough conspiracy theories this year that it garnered mockery on late-night television, commentary from presidential candidates and reaction from the Texas governor. The basic thrust of the concerns: The military was laying the groundwork for martial law — if not now, then sometime in the future.”
Then TV commentator Jon Stewart, in support of his master, the US Government, gave this admonition to Governor Abbot of Texas who had ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor the US military in his state.
“Oh dear Lord, Yet another waste of Texas funds that could have been spent on actual threats, like your infamous chainsaw massacres. Texas, it’s not that I don’t find it adorable that your governor thinks your State Guard could take on the United States military. It’s like a little dog growling at a big dog, or an 8-year-old picking a fight with the Predator.”

No groups of people are more easily enslaved than those who are functionally illiterate or have been successfully indoctrinated to the point they do not understand they are slaves, and no groups of people are more criminal than those who believe their criminal acts are necessary and sanctioned by a god called government.
It started with John Dewey in 1898 and continues today with complete government sanction, operating under sanitized, euphemistic phrases such as “Goals 2000, No Child Left Behind or Common Core.” Collectivism has brought us to the point where approximately 50% of the population of our country is functionally illiterate. If you doubt this for a moment, have your server at a local fast food restaurant make change without a programmed cash register or ask almost anyone to explain why the people known as Anti-federalists opposed ratification of our Constitution.

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” ~ William Casey, Ronald Reagan’s first CIA Director (from Casey’s first staff meeting, 1981)
On September 18, 1947, the National Security Act became law. This new law created multiple layers of unaccountable bureaucracies that have controlled our government since that date. Among those new bureaucracies were the Department of Defense, a subtle change in wording from Department of War to lull the American people to sleep believing their military would only be involved in defending the country. Of course, this has morphed into a force which, while leaving our borders unprotected, has embarked on a quest for empire with a US military presence in over 140 different countries, a massive albatross of choking debt, hundreds of thousands of dead and maimed military personnel and unconstitutional, perpetual wars for peace with nothing to show in the “win” column.

One would be hard pressed to disagree with the fact the Declaration of Independence not only defines the beginnings of our country but could be called our founding charter. Thomas Jefferson most eloquently laid out the tenets of lawful separation from a tyrannical oppressor, but also the definition of the one thing which defines the difference between ownership by the people of their government or the ownership of the people by a government: the basic tenet of “consent of the governed.”
It is both an indictment and a conviction of the Public Fool System and the institutionalized ignorance of the vast majority of citizens in this country that a government which operates without their consent is not only tyrannical and oppressive but such a government renders the people political slaves to their government’s edicts, rulings, and laws. Believing an elected representative who does not strictly adhere to a sacred oath to the Constitution is a lawful “representative” of their vested interests is insanity perfectly defined. Any elected representative who votes or acts unconstitutionally is a criminal and should be treated as such. Continue reading
We are continually told by the government and their shills in the media of the criminality engaged in by those with the audacity to challenge the legality of government intrusions on our liberty and freedoms. They oftentimes refer to us as “domestic terrorists.” “By what authority” could a local, elected, public official such as a Sheriff challenge unconstitutional laws has been on the lips of many candidates for those offices. Ignorance is bliss and it requires very little action. Continue reading
“Some wear the color of the sky in the winter
Some were as blue as the night
They came like a storm with the light of the morn
And they fell through the whole day and night
Colors flew high and they danced in the sky
As I watched them come over the hill
Then to my wonder, sticks that made thunder
Such a great number lay still” ~ Sticks That Made Thunder, The Steeldrivers
In late June of 1863, the 800 plus North Carolinians who made up the 26th North Carolina Infantry Regiment began their long march from the vicinity of Fredricksburg, Virginia to near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The 26th NC was made up of primarily hardscrabble farm boys from Central and Western North Carolina. A great many of these men were under the age of 25. Among them were two of my ancestors.* Continue reading
“As long as it is admitted that the law may be diverted from its true purpose—that it may violate property instead of protecting it—then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself from plunder or use it for plunder.” ~ Frederick Bastiat
We have all been brought up hearing the phrase “the rule of law.” We also hear often that we are a “nation of laws” not a “nation of men.” We have common law, constitutional law, blue laws, supreme law, the law of the jungle, civil law and Jefferson’s “the Law of Nature and Nature’s God.”
Is it possible all of the laws mentioned above are compatible? Does any one of them contradict the others? We all should know laws are to be created by a legislature for the primary purpose of protecting our individual rights. To accomplish that purpose all laws created by that legislature must be “in pursuance of” our established Constitution and Bill of Rights. Any law that is contrary to the pursuance of our Constitution is null, void and of no force. Continue reading
“Conspirators do not make minutes of their machinations, progress, and objectives. Seldom, therefore, can conspiracy be proved by other than circumstantial evidence. It is only by assembling the results, with such evidence as may be of the progress thereof by the participants, that the victim can ever make a case of conspiracy. If in the end there is a completed structure of result, the frame of which has been furnished piecemeal by several individuals, the parts when brought together showing adaptation to each other and fitness for the end accomplished, it is at least reasonable to infer concert in both planning and fabrication.” ~ Scheele v. Union Finance & Loan Co., 200 Minn. 554 at 560, 274 N. W. 673 at 678 (1937). (Emphasis added)
Prior to, during, and shortly after our Second War for Independence, the Constitutional Republic designed and ratified by our forefathers was hijacked and destroyed by members of the International Banking Cartel and their bought and paid for members of our government including members of Congress, Cabinet Members and the US Supreme Court. This form of unconstitutional governance has continued to the present day, continually utilizing bought and paid for members of our government and we are today reaping the full whirlwind of that wind sown in the 1860s.

I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the mayhem of this presidential campaign season. The forces that have combined in an attempt to derail a Trump phenomenon the Republicans never saw coming is most revealing. The popularity of Trump among those in this country who are beginning to catch on to the political scam of the two major parties has created chaos within the GOP, the media, and with Democrats. Did the Republican hierarchy really believe the people would not eventually see through the scam that no matter which R they voted for, once elected, they legislated like a full blown progressive, socialist Democrat?

“The financiers’ motives in the war were not as glorious as the motives of many fine young men when they marched in ranks mowed down at Second Manassas, Fredericksburg, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Second Cold Harbor, and other such battles. The true object, for which those boys were uncaringly and needlessly sacrificed, was to transform national debt into private control of banking and currency in the United States.” ~ John Remington Graham, Blood Money: the Civil War and the Federal Reserve (Emphasis added)
Fredericksburg, Virginia ~ Harper’s Weekly
~ Forewords ~
About two years ago I wrote a series of articles under the title of this piece in order to bring the light of truth to the events in our history known incorrectly as the Civil War. Since I wrote these articles there have been several events that have occurred in this country which have led to continued demonization of the people of the South, their culture, and their symbols. In reaction to the horrific shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, in June of 2015, several entities across this country began political, not historical, attacks on Southern symbols. Ironically, today, one can purchase an ISIS flag at Amazon but cannot purchase a Confederate Battle Flag. A personal friend has taken on the fight in Ft. Smith, Arkansas to challenge the local school board which made the decision to remove a school mascot, the school fight song and the name of a dance team as a personal sacrifice to the gods of Cultural Marxism. To this man and his efforts, I dedicate this series of articles. Thanks, Joey ~ M.G.
“Mr. Pendleton, if the Republicans lose their little war; they’re voted out in the next election and they return to their homes in New York, or Massachusetts or Illinois, fat with their war profits; if we lose, we lose our country, we lose our independence, we lose it all.” ~ General Thomas Jonathan Jackson (Stonewall) 1862.

I have written previously, the government we presently are controlled by, as opposed to performing their constitutional obligation to defend our individual rights, is riding hell-bent-for-leather to destroy any vestiges of freedom, liberty, and personal property rights. Such was the government established throughout our country during the period of our history known as Reconstruction. The model for the application of the principles of Reconstruction was established primarily by General William Tecumseh Sherman, especially as he embarked on his infamous burnings of Meridian, Atlanta, the “March to the Sea” and then subsequent attacks into South and North Carolina. While the “Radical Republicans” led by Thaddeus Stevens and Charles Sumner set about the political raping and pillaging of the South, Sherman turned his death and destruction on the American Indians.

“When the president does it, that means it’s not illegal.” ~ Richard Nixon
I certainly did not realize what would be the extent of time spent researching for my future class on: who were the five best and who were the five worst presidents in American history. Especially, considering I had chosen in advance as the baseline for that determination how each president performed in accordance with their oath of office.
We should all be aware that in today’s political landscape, our Constitution can mean everything or it can mean nothing, depending of course on how any decision based on a sacred oath to ‘protect and defend” that Constitution plays with the country’s electorate. Those citizens who are clamoring for so-called entitlements or those who are begging to be protected from some existential threat, a threat most often created by their own government, are equally uncaring about how their president and other elected officials perform in accordance with that sacred oath.

Socialism Coming Home To Roost
“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
“Democracy is the road to Socialism” ~ Karl Marx
Friday night last, in the city of Chicago, we saw a microcosm of what those in government who see that government as a path to power and wealth and those they promise to support for life in return for their votes have brought to this once proud Republic.
The dichotomy of law enforcement shooting farmers and ranchers in the West in order to seize private property for their masters while members of law enforcement are shot to death by welfare recipients and illegal aliens in the cities that have embraced socialism on a grand scale is lost on Ignoramus Americanus and those who blindly serve and worship the god called government.

“It is forbidden to kill, therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets“ ~ Voltaire
Robert LaVoy Finicum
On January 26, 2016, Robert LaVoy Finicum was murdered on a lonely stretch of highway in Oregon by as yet unnamed government employees. It was murder in the first degree for it meets all four of the legal tenets for such a crime. Continue reading
Author’s NOTE: In light of what happened recently in Oregon and what happened in Nevada in 2014, including the arrest of the Bundys a journalist and several members of the militia, all acts which are traceable directly to the usurpation of power over states in the West by the Bureau of Land Management and other government alphabet agencies, it is important we examine those actions using the Constitution as a baseline. We must remember that government agencies never find anything in our Constitution that limit their actions and have begun to refer to those who question these actions as “domestic terrorists.” But, these agencies often point to Article IV Section III Clause 2 as constitutional justification of their criminal acts. In most cases this seems to work—they just throw the Article, Section and Clause out there as evidence to a country of brain dead zombies—all courtesy of the Public Fool System, socialist college professors, government shills and sycophants. It’s well past time we confront their claims of constitutional authorization for their gestapo storm trooper actions. ~ (M.G.) Continue reading
Authors note: While I remain unconvinced that Donald Trump has a firm grasp on the importance of our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution as ratified, our Bill of Rights and their proper application, I applaud how his campaign continues to expose the underbelly of the beast for all to see. What I fear is this: if their personal and professional attacks do not accomplish the needed results, Trump will be more and more seen as a liability that must be eliminated by other means. ~ M.G.
A great many Americans continue to be drawn to the battle for the nomination for president in the Republican Party. That Hillary will be the nominee from the left is virtually assured, even if she is indicted in the meantime which is highly unlikely considering the track record of the FBI and DOJ when it comes to dealing with the Clinton crime family. Any entity who lends support to a person like Sanders who is not not only an avowed Socialist, but a Communist sympathizer as well, would gladly support a person under indictment. Remember it was Lenin who told us the goal of Socialism is Communism. Continue reading
“You are a slow learner, Winston.”
“How can I help it? How can I help but see what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four. Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.” ~ George Orwell, 1984
This morning , one of the top stories on my lobotomy box (TV) concerned the US Department of Justice issuing a report on their investigation of the Albuquerque Police Dept. Now, that is just what we need; the agency responsible for killing over 70 people at Waco, including 26 children; shooting 14 year old Samuel Weaver in the back; shooting his unarmed mother in the head while holding her infant; covering up facts of the OKC bombing; being involved in the first bombing of the Twin Towers in 1993; running a devious operation known as Cointelpro and shooting Lavoy Finicum while he stood with his hands up, should be the people who stand in judgement of a local police department that because of its federal training mandates was shooting unarmed people at an alarming rate and costing the taxpayers of Albuquerque millions. Two and two is five! Continue reading
The vast majority of Americans have been taught by the Public Fool System, Leviathan’s historians and religious con-artists, that a group of devoutly religious men, the majority of whom were in total agreement on the tenets of government, got together in 1787 and came up with a constitution that was widely accepted and is exactly what our politicians, judges and law enforcement observe today as they go about their business.
We all have heard of James Madison who bears the title of “Father of the Constitution.” Strange indeed considering the plan of government Madison wrote and transmitted to George Washington in April of 1787 and was presented at the convention as the “Virginia Plan,” was overwhelmingly rejected at that convention. Continue reading
As I have written on numerous occasions, the true meaning of the Constitution is to be found in what the people in the various State Ratification Conventions were told told it meant before they agreed to ratify it as the law of the land.
Also found in those ratification debates are wonderful and concise descriptions of what the Constitution would lead to if the proper safeguards and limitations were not placed on government. No finer example of both promises and predictions can be found than the discussion between Patrick Henry and John Marshall on the 7th of June 1888 in the Virginia State Ratification Convention.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee…” ~ Hosea 4:6
Yesterday, I received an email touting the defense of our Constitution by recently deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. The first paragraph went on to sing the praises of Scalia although no evidence of this support was found in the body of the email. The author of this piece then claimed Scalia to be the greatest person to ever wear the black robe, with the possible exception of John Marshall. Continue reading
One could certainly believe the below quote could be echoed today in any of the 50 states as we are forced to stand and watch as a totally unconstitutional, tyrannical and oppressive government goes about destroying what little is left of this once proud country.
But what are the chances one would hear these words from a sitting member of Congress today? Continue reading

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
