With the mid-term election season getting into full swing following the Labor Day holiday, a USA Today/Gallup poll reveals that Democrat hopes of holding onto both houses of Congress are dimming.
It may not have packed the emotional punch of the last chopper off the roof of the embassy in Saigon, but the word has come down from on high: the last combat troops have left the building.
Almost everyone believes that they see things as they are. Almost no one does. Our perception of reality rules our lives no matter what we think. Propagandists know the very high manipulative value of peoples’ expectations based on their perception of reality. Read this article to gain a better understanding of perception vs. reality…
The Barack Obama administration has sided with the world against Arizona. That’s essentially what he did when the United States State Department referred the Arizona immigration law to the United Nations Human Rights Council for review.
How much money do you have in your wallet? I’m not trying to be nosey. I want to make a very important point about what is wealth — and why what we call “dollars” have lost 80 percent of their purchasing power since I came kicking and screaming into the world. Read this article to learn the cause of this massive loss of wealth…
For those of you lucky enough to enjoy vocations which don’t require endless news and issues research, count yourselves doubly lucky that you weren’t subjected to President Barack Obama’s speech marking the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s disastrous visit to New Orleans. Granted, Katrina was hard on the Big Easy, but five years later Obama didn’t repair any damage. He was busy doing damage control.
As President Barack Obama continues to transform the United States into a socialist hell, yet another poke in the eye is the National Mediation Board’s recent proposal to make it easier for airline and railroad workers to unionize. But the proposed new rule would require only that a majority of employees who actually vote on the question of unionization would be needed to unionize.

Mention nullification as a way to resist Federal tyranny and prepare to be branded a racist who wants to bring back slavery. But nullification — the idea that if Congress passes an unconstitutional law the states don’t have to acknowledge or obey it — enjoys a rich history in the United States. It began long before slavery was a major political issue and is being used even today.
In Nullification: How To Resist Tyranny In The 21st Century, Thomas E. Woods Jr., explores the history of nullification in America. It’s a history that few students are taught in government schools, and one that even fewer mainstream historians are willing — or able — to discuss. In fact, Woods writes that at a scholarly debate he attended in 2003, only he and one other academic defended the Thomas Jefferson view of nullification (as espoused in the Virginia and Kentucky resolutions in opposition to the Alien and Sedition Acts and known as the Principles of ’98).
Woods holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard and received a master’s, a Master of Philosophy and Ph.D. from Columbia University. He’s a senior fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, he edited Exploring American History: From Colonial Times to 1877 (an 11-volume encyclopedia) and is the author of 10 books.
He says that the Founders meant for the states to be checks against Federal tyranny and the 10th Amendment was put into the Constitution to reinforce the rights of states to nullify unConstitutional laws.
