How to … reclaim America’s First Principles and history
by Judge Michael Warren
“Only lay down true principles, and adhere to them inflexibly. Do not be frightened into their surrender by the alarms of the timid, or the croakings of wealth against the ascendancy of the people….
“A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for a second, that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of the society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sin and suffering.”
— Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Samuel Kercheval (1816).
One of the best introductions to America’s First Principles, America’s Survival Guide is a primer for those principles, along with several practical steps that we as Americans must take to reclaim liberty in our country. The author, Michael Warren, an actual sitting circuit court judge in Michigan, spells out the mission statement of the book at the outset: Continue reading →
Yet if liberty people step up, there’s light at the end of the tunnel
Strength thru Unity Unity thru Faith
Just in case anyone is misinterpreting my assessment of what we are in store for with the Donald, here’s an interchange I produced in econversation with some Michigan liberty Republicans regarding the latest cabinet and advisor prospects…
It appears to me that the Trump gang is going to be carrying the water for the Israel Lobby just as much as Hillary would have, with the possible exception of not upending Syria for a while. His statements and staff selections indicate he’s on board with the Greater Israel Project, especially in terms of invading and/or attacking Iran.
He also appears to have fanatical belief in the Ziocon-contrived War on Terror and its associated Constitutional infringements—not to mention the continuing unbroken string of false-flag attacks of global state terror—, such as stop and frisk [not even Hillary was for stop and frisk, at least not publicly]; he’s antitruth on several fronts (pals with many of the legitimate suspects of the 9/11 attacks, such as Larry Silverstein and other major Ziocons), is a sadistic Medievalist when it comes to drug freedom and women’s choice, is okay with poisoning the environment (and us) with GMOs, glyphosates—anything the Monsanto/Big Agra cartel wants to throw our way, including slow death by geoengineering and weather warfare.
He likes torture, mass incarceration, rendition, full-spectrum illegal surveillance, all the baubles and trinkets of the US-Israeli imperial juggernaut running amok. In short, where Hillary represents the totalitarian left, Trump represents the totalitarian right… and when you get right down to it, the individual of liberty in either regime is dead meat.

A common-law based constitutional republic is best for liberty
By Ron Burcham, USMC
As I understand it, the Founders gave their descendants a libertarian world under mala in se, common, or natural law. It was supplanted by the political class with mala prohibitum, statutory, law. Under common law the government had no authority or jurisdiction over an individual unless and until another’s person or property was harmed. The state, not being a person, could not be harmed by an individual.
An interesting aside is that the first police force in the United States, as we know it, was created in Boston in 1838. Until then the CLEO there was the county sheriff.
For it to be a crime someone or their property had to be harmed in some way. Statutory law, contrived, or invented law, gave government power over individuals 24/7/365. The Constitution was written under common law, hence the Bill of Rights was written to protect our rights under common law, i.e., using such phrases as:
… from stomping on medical marijuana patients and businesses
by Shane Trejo
Join Michigan Moms United for a ‘Stop the Raids’ protest in Lansing at the state capitol. Tuesday, March 22 at the Michigan State Capitol Building, 100 N Capitol Ave, Lansing, Michigan at 12 Noon.
We have fallen on tough times. Michigan bureaucrats have recently started an egregious witch hunt against medical marijuana, which was approved in 2008 by the voters in overwhelming fashion.
With the Flint water poisoning scandal garnering national attention, our corrupt scumbag bureaucrats need a scapegoat. And this time the scapegoat is innocent medical patients and their caregivers. Continue reading →
Woman jailed for refusing federal order to commit perjury
Case erupts over speech rights, due process and signature on tax forms
By Alex Newman, World Net Daily [Full original article here]
When a federal court and the federal government ordered Doreen Hendrickson to sign a form under penalty of perjury that she believed to be inaccurate, the mother of two initially refused to comply.
Eventually, she obeyed but noted that the sworn statement was being made under duress.
Now, because of that decision, she is sitting behind bars for “contempt of court.”
A federal appeal is being considered in what sources called an “unprecedented” case, with arguments from both sides presented last month.
The case has broad implications for free speech and due process.
Hendrickson’s saga officially began in 2006, when the Internal Revenue Service claimed that refunds it had issued to her years earlier were mistakes, according to the family and official documents reviewed by WND. Continue reading →
“People’s Protection-Manual” on life support
by John Galt
Instead of the traditional Republicon versus Demoliar debate which ensues for theatrics on cable news, I thought a more prudent analysis of the State of the Union after Obama’s first term is much more appropriate and realistic as to where our nation is going in the future.
Thus I present the following commentary on the State of the Union for the United States of America by analyzing our Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution and their status as of tonight.
Another reason to always listen to your mother
by Brian Wright
This one continues again from the previous two columns that resulted from general consternation over O-Slammer-Care… I mentioned to Mom that the Constitution is simple: no federal authority for health care. She said she agreed with me on this one. “It isn’t in there. Government officials should know and make available the Constitution to their constituents.”
