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.
The human body is made up of trillions of cells that divide and replicate billions of times each day. With so much going on in the body it’s inevitable that mistakes are going to occur. But about six times in each person’s lifetime, those mistake cells turn into cancer cells.
Mostly those cancer cells are eliminated by the body’s immune system. But sometimes the immune system fails to eliminate them and they begin to grow and spread. That means that about 42 percent of Americans will contract cancer and find themselves in a cancer treatment center.
It doesn’t have to be that way, and you can lower your chances of contracting the life-altering, life-threatening disease by bolstering your immune system.
And if you are currently fighting that dreaded disease, improved nutrition—and consequently an improved immune system—can help you improve your quality of life and maybe better your odds of winning the fight.
This is a timely book about the breakdown of the rule of law in the United States.
Individual freedom and the rule of law is gone in America. Oh, they haven’t come for you yet? You haven’t broken the law? Well, Harvey Silverglate proves in Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent that the Feds (U.S. prosecuting attorneys) target the innocent. He says the, “federal prosecutors are abusing their power by using the criminal law to prosecute law abiding citizens…” They are seizing illegal power by twisting marginal and highly questionable interpretations of criminal law.
Silverglate believes that we are in danger of becoming a society in which prosecutors alone become judges, juries and executioners because the threat of high sentences make it too costly for even innocent people to resist the prosecutorial pressure.

America is a nation secretly controlled by large corporations and other background entities that terrorize the nation’s citizens in order to establish a fascist-like control. And sadly, the vast majority of Americans have no idea anything of the sort is going on, according to Jeffrey Grupp, author of Corporatism: The Secret Government of the New World Order.
The transformation from a free to a corporatist society actually began in 1870s and continued slowly into the 1970s. But since the 1970s the transformation picked up speed turning the United States into a communist nation—an Orwellian state with all the standard characteristics such as invisible and fabricated terror networks, mass brainwashing, staged war, mass poverty and, eventually, the migration of virtually all citizens into compact, dirty, disease-ridden cities that could more accurately be called labor or concentration camps. And the pace of the transformation really accelerated after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Grupp writes.
Cody Lundin wants you to be prepared, not scared. It’s with that philosophy that he wrote When All Breaks Loose (Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes), and it’s why this is not your typical survival manual.
Lundin is the founder of the Aboriginal Living Skills School, an adjunct faculty member of Yavapai College and a faculty member at the Ecosa Institute, a frequent guest on television programs and the go-to guy as a survival expert. He teaches the things he has lived.
Whether you think your crisis will come as a result of a natural disaster, collapse of the government or something else, Lundin wants you to be prepared. And with this book he prepares you for survival in both an urban and rural setting.
History can be a funny thing. Sometimes the sands of time obscure facts from those with only a passing knowledge of the truth.
So it is with some of the Founding Fathers. As a group they are revered by many for their knowledge, wisdom and forethought. They are seen as selfless defenders of liberty.
But that view is not completely accurate. Take the case of Alexander Hamilton, described by Thomas J. DiLorenzo in Hamilton’s Curse as essentially the anti-Thomas Jefferson—a man who would be pleased with America’s economic system today.
Hamilton’s Curse is not a biography of Hamilton. Rather it describes “his core political and economic ideas; the intellectual, legal, and political battles over those ideas; and the consequences America has suffered since his ideas were implemented,” DiLorenzo writes.
Although he was a principal author of The Federalist Papers and championed the adoption of the United States Constitution to replace the Articles of Confederation, he began to work immediately to undermine its tenants as President George Washington’s first Treasury Secretary.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:17-18
If you can get past the name of one of the authors and the religious reference to the beast and its mark as mentioned in the Bible, there is a lot of profundity in this book. Authors Ronald MacDonald and Robert Rowen, M.D., have researched their topic well and laid it out in a manner that is easy to follow.
They posit that the beast mentioned in the Bible is actually alive and well today and it is the international banking cartel (including the Federal Reserve) that spits out the fiat currency we use today.

Chances are what you learned in school about the causes of the Great Depression and the effects of the New Deal and Word War II on the American economy are all wrong. If you were taught to believe the free market caused the Great Depression and the New Deal and World War II got us out of it, reading The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Great Depression and The New Deal will set you straight.
When a little-known (outside of Alaska) governor was announced as John McCain’s running mate Aug. 29, 2008, the Republican Party’s base was electrified and the elites of both the Democrat and Republican parties were mortified.
Five days later Sarah Palin gave her speech to the Republican National Convention and she demonstrated that she was going to be a force to be reckoned with in conservative politics for years to come—a force that the elites will forever fail to understand.
Palin opens Going Rogue: An American Life at the Alaska State Fair in August 2008. She was there with her daughters and infant son Trig—not with an entourage and a host of bodyguards—but with her family, watching her children and their friends ride the rides. Whereas politicians attend those events to shake hands and be seen, Palin was busy keeping up with her kids and buying concessions, like millions of Americans do every year.
But it was at the fair that her life forever changed. For it was there she received the call from McCain that would rock the political establishment.
Public schools today are crime-ridden, unhealthful places where children are exposed to sex, drugs and diseases and taught a sanitized version of American history and a loyalty to and dependence on big government, according to James Ostrowski in his book, Government Schools Are Bad For Your Kids.
Ostrowski is a trial and appellate lawyer and libertarian writer, and he has drawn on the works of the top libertarian thinkers and organizations in researching his book. He lays out a case that should give pause to anyone with children or grandchildren in today’s government-run school system.
