The Revolutions Were

Written by Gary North on October 1, 2016

revolution

“There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.” — Garet Garrett, The Revolution Was (1938) There have […]

The Constitution’s Original Preamble

Written by Gary North on June 25, 2016

constitution

This is a forgotten aspect of American history. It is worth mentioning. The Preamble is the most famous section of the Constitution. We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings […]

Posted on January 9, 2016

bundy

By Joel Skousen   The occupation of the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, Oregon by a small group of armed protesters represents a new and confrontational tactic in the Sagebrush Rebellion–the decades old struggle of Western ranchers against federal control of state lands. While the majority of rancher disputes are […]

Secession: Armed vs. Peaceful

Written by Gary North on July 4, 2015

secession

Lots of people celebrate July 4. I do not. The Declaration of Independence justified armed secession. It was signed by a handful of lawyers on July 4, 1776. Secession was a way of transferring a great deal of power to colonial legislatures, where most of these lawyers were members. It was a way of replacing […]

George “Sulu” Takei on Coercing Christian Bakers

Written by Robert Murphy on February 12, 2015

On Facebook I follow George Takei (“Lt. Sulu” from the original Star Trek series) because he’s pretty funny, but mostly because I loved that show. Unfortunately Takei applauded the Oregon judge who ruled against the Christian bakers, and put the hashtag #SeparationOfChurchandCake. Upping the ante, one of Takei’s fans posted this in the thread without […]

Sharia Law and Gun Control

Written by Gary North on January 24, 2015

gun-control

Freedom of the press is now a moot point in Europe. Freedom of the press is related to the right to keep and bear arms: Amendments 1 and 2 of the U.S. Constitution. If you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms, you don’t have freedom of the press. The state cannot protect […]

Myth: The U.S. Constitution Abolishes Slavery

Written by Gary North on November 11, 2014

It never has. “But what about the 13th Amendment? It clearly abolishes slavery.” It clearly does not. Now you may be wondering: “Has North lost his revisionist mind?” No; I have merely read the text. But, unlike most people, I read what it says, not what high school history and civics teachers say it says. […]

IRS Thumbs Its Nose at Congress, Which Is Impotent

Written by Gary North on September 18, 2014

IRS

Congress is impotent. The IRS is revealing this as never before. It is saying, loud and clear, that Congress cannot do anything to Lois Lerner or any other IRS employee. Sorry; no emails. They went bye-bye into cyberspace. There are no digits. There is no smoking gun. But what about the NSA? Doesn’t the NSA […]

More Lost IRS E-Mails. The IRS Tells Congress: “Go Fish.”

Written by Gary North on September 6, 2014

go-fish

Congress is impotent. The IRS knows Congress is impotent. The IRS can safely thumb its nose at Congress in full public view. Everyone knows the IRS did illegal things when it refused to grant the privilege of tax exemption to conservative groups. “Go fish.” Everyone knows the IRS destroyed the incriminating e-mails. “Go fish.” Everyone […]

Suing Obama Over Executive Orders

Written by Gary North on June 27, 2014

executive-orders

House Speaker John Boehner threatens a lawsuit over Obama’s use of executive orders. I’m for it. The public does not understand executive orders. Any bad publicity given to them is positive. There are over 13,000 of them. They let a President create laws without Congress. They are mentioned in the Constitution. They have been used […]
