Cry Treason!

May 13, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba Treason is generally defined as the offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one’s country or of assisting its enemies in war. Benedict Arnold burned his name into U.S. history by conspiring with the British to turn over West Point to them. When his plot failed, he fled to England. Having […]

When It Comes To Health Care, The Left Doesn’t “Worry About The Constitution”

April 5, 2010 by


By Conn Carroll Rep. Phil Hare (D-IL) voted for Obamacare. When questioned by his constituents to identify what part of the Constitution empowers the federal government to force Americans to buy health insurance, Rep. Hare replies: “I don’t worry about the Constitution on this to be honest.” We applaud Rep. Hare for his honesty, but […]

Reflections On A National Disaster

March 25, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba “Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy that did not commit suicide.” — John Adams (1835-1826) There is no question in my mind that I have lived long enough to see everything the nation once stood for in our own eyes and in […]

The Constitution Needs A New Amendment

February 17, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba The last Amendment to the Constitution took effect in 1992. The 27th said, “No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.” I assume this means they cannot vote themselves a raise until a new group of […]

We’re The Best

February 12, 2010 by


By Tom McLaughlin A few months ago, the Language Arts teacher in the next classroom asked the following question for a writing assignment: “Is the United States the best country in the world?” Only about 25 percent of our students thought so. We used to teach that to schoolchildren, but now they grow up hearing […]

President Obama Is Preparing To Impose Martial Law

February 2, 2010 by


Some of you are asking, “Carl, how could you make such an outrageous statement?” Well, just as dark clouds indicate that it is about to rain, when all of the signs point at something, it’s not paranoia, simply an acceptance of the facts. Barack Obama recently, without any publicity (that should set off alarm bells […]

Obama, The Scourge Of The Constitution

January 15, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba Barack Obama taught a University of Chicago Law School course on the U.S. Constitution. In response to inquiries during the campaign, the school released the following statement: “He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per […]

Public Servants Gone Wild

January 9, 2010 by


By Nancy Morgan The employees I originally hired to handle certain aspects of my life are out of control. Drunk with the power I have given them, they have decided that they know better than I how to arrange my life. And there’s not much I can do. While I was busy living my life, […]

Gun Ownership As A Cost Of Health Care Reform

October 23, 2009 by


The National Institute Of Health (NIH) recently began studying the relationship between gun ownership and health issues. At one time, this sort of research was done by the Centers For Disease Control (CDC) until Congress cut funding for the program, after it was found that the flawed research done by the CDC was shown to […]

The United States Constitution Says That You HAVE To Buy Health Insurance!

October 22, 2009 by


House Majority Leader claims Congress has “broad authority” to use the Constitution to force Americans to buy health insurance. Day by day, step by step, the Obama adminsitration and his cohorts in Congress are working towards fulfilling Obama’s campaign promise to “fundamentally change America.” If we like the change or not doesn’t seem to matter. […]

Real Experts Speak Out Regarding Gun Control

October 18, 2009 by


For years, we have been subjected to numerous opinions on the issue of gun control. On one side of the issue are those who believe that the “Right To Keep And Bear Arms” is an inherent American right granted to them by the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. On the other […]

Organizing For America Promotes Fascism

October 6, 2009 by


If you don’t want any point of view other than your own to be heard, then you simply don’t ALLOW any other point of view to be heard! We all know that that tactic has been used before, but now we are seeing it happen in the United States of America! Oh well, we were […]

Not Yours To Give

October 2, 2009 by


Alexander’s Essay from The Patriot Post “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents…” –James Madison My paternal ancestors settled in East Tennessee about 10 years before it was admitted to the Union […]

Mark Lloyd, Racism, Localism And The Fairness Doctrine

September 29, 2009 by


Yesterday we did a report on the apparently racist remarks of President Obama’s latest Czar appointment, FCC Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd. Among the chilling remarks made by Mr. Lloyd (along with those showing his respect and admiration for Hugo Chavez) is the following: “We’re in a position where you have to say who is going […]

Is Obama’s Diversity Czar A Racist?

September 28, 2009 by


Today we will showcase someone who adds a new chapter to all of the stories of racism in America. Bear with us as we do a slight introduction. Members of Congress, the mainstream media, and even former Presidents have been making the (unfounded) claim that people attending Tea Party protests, town hall meetings, etc., are […]

Turning The Senate Into The Chicago City Council

September 27, 2009 by


By Newt Gingrich at Family Security Matters “Using the budget reconciliation process to pass health reform and climate change legislation…would violate the intent and spirit of the budget process, and do serious injury to the constitutional role of the Senate.” These are not the words of a Republican or a conservative activist. This is a […]

The Unconstitutional Provision In H.R. 3200

August 14, 2009 by


The Obamaites aren’t satisfied with taking health care decisions out of the hands of individuals, they want to enact yet another violation of the U.S. Constitution while they are at it. There are many problems with the health care “reform” bill now working it’s way through the halls of Congress. The provision that perhaps should […]

Under The Radar: 10th Amendment Movement Picks Up Steam

July 20, 2009 by


By Nancy Morgan Millions of Americans watch with horror as the Obama administration continues to implement its own version of ‘change.’ Change that involves an unprecedented and systematic devolution of power to the federal government, in direct contravention of the Constitution. From the pending takeover of 17% of  economy under the auspices of health care […]

Update! Federal Law Protects Obama From Having To Release Birth Certificate

July 18, 2009 by


Thursday we did a report on what the Army major who had his orders to deploy to Afghanistan revoked after he made the claim that Barack Obama has not proven that he is eligible to be Commander-In-Chief. That article created a firestorm the likes of which we had never seen before. Friday we did a […]

An Endangered America

June 29, 2009 by


By Alan Caruba. “My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!” said Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence and our third President. As usual, he was right. Present-day Americans take for granted the story of the […]

June 21, 2009 by


William J Federer’s American Minute. The U.S. Constitution went into effect JUNE 21, 1788, when New Hampshire became the 9th state to ratify it.

Atlas Ready To Shrug

April 10, 2009 by


Herbert London. In a little over two months since the inauguration of President Barack Obama, the United States has become a different nation. It is not merely the transfer of trillions of tax payer dollars from the government to designated industries. It is not only the de-leveraging in the private sector and the re-leveraging in […]

The Two Faced Brutality Of Hope And Change

April 4, 2009 by


Frank Salvato. As the leaders of the G20 assembled in London to discuss the economic woes of the world, so too came the dregs of the Earth. Under the ruse of assembling as tolerant, engaged and caring members of society – activists concerned with war, the environment and the economic crisis – anti-war activists, eco-zealots, […]

Which Founding Father Were You Referring To Then?

January 26, 2009 by


IDEALS OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS John Armor Thank you Mr. President, for this interview. We’re both lawyers and students of history. I look forward to your comments on the “ideals of our Founding Fathers” you referenced in your Inaugural Address. Which Founders are you particularly thinking of? Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and Franklin? That’s a superlative […]
