    Every US state has a motto. Some are interesting, like “Live Free of Die,” in New Hampshire, and some are sadly truthful, like, “Our Government is Vampiric” in Massachusetts. Just kidding. It’s more along the lines of “We’ll Tax You to Death,” or something like that. Anyway, some, like the motto for the 49th state, Alaska, are very upbeat and offer a sense of adventure. In Alaska, politicians tell us to look, “North, to The Future.” But, a shocking move by the federal government might inspire Alaskans to change their motto to, “Our Land Is Being Stolen By The Feds!”...
  • Archbishop Lori Responds to Civil Rights Commission

    Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, chairman of the U.S. bishops' Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty, responded forcefully in defense of religious liberty to a very disturbing statement from the chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights upon the issuance of its report on "Peaceful Coexistence." First, let's go over what the report said. Here's what page 21 of the report states: USCCB:(1) schools must be allowed to insist on inclusive values; 2) throughout history, religious doctrines accepted at one time later become viewed as discriminatory, with religions changing accordingly; 3) without exemptions, groups would not use the...

    It took 200 years for the Roman Empire to fall. It appears to have taken the Constitutional Republic of The United States of America only 60 years, but still counting. What we see now is the fruit of decades of Marxist/Liberal infiltration and influences within the vital social, governmental, media, and cultural institutions of the America we have known. Their purpose: To radically change, or destroy, the Constitution, the government institutions and systems flowing from it. By so separating the Constitution from our national life, they degrade our traditional culture and values of Judaeo-Christianity that underpin the Constitution and stand...

    Jeffrey Leef is a Republican and a political novice who challenged Chicago's Democratic machine by running for Congress. He had no expectation of defeating incumbent Rep. Danny Davis, whose 7th district hasn't elected a Republican in 70 years. This was an idealistic pursuit by a citizen in defense of the endangered two-party system in Cook County. What could possibly go wrong? Leef got the nomination and secured enough signatures to get on the ballot. But before he could put up signs or receive a single donation, an ousted committeeman filed an objection to his candidacy with the Board of Elections....

Saturday, September 17, is of course a very important and underappreciated occasion which I believe should be a national holiday -- Constitution Day, the anniversary of the adoption of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. But it was on this date, September 14, that one of the most important provisions came into being, thanks to George Mason. It was Article V.

    Somewhere in the 1980s, diversity is our strength made its debut. At the time, I gaffed it off as another Leftist idiocy that would soon fizzle out. How wrong I was. Their mantra, which spread to the rest of government and society, goes something like this: diversity supposedly means respect for all cultures, religions, ethnic backgrounds. Since all values and moralities are equal, the multiculturalist must deny any intrinsic superiority of free societies over slave societies. Since our national strength is derived from a multitude of cultures, Leftist ideology demands not only the importation of muslims, but retention of their...

    The Latin rebellare means renewal of war. When a town or tribe was conquered and terms of peace agreed to, it was in rebellion if it violated its settlement with the Romans. From this, the root of the word rebellion involves rejection of an agreement by the conquered. Violence to reassert dominance and control is typically the conquerors response. Closer to home, recall that sporadic slave disturbances of early America were ruthlessly put down with Roman-style force. Our duty as American citizens goes no further than obedience to the law of our making requires. We are not servants of the...

The legislation sets additional restrictions on the state to prevent abuses from civil asset forfeiture, a controversial practice that observers such as the Institute for Justice (IJ) have called legal plunder.

I predict that she will waste no time in launching an onslaught of punitive new policies via executive orders, presidential memoranda, and policy directives promulgated through her cabinet and Federal agencies to eviscerate our Constitutional rights (most notably the 1st and 2nd Amendments). A key goal this campaign will be silencing dissent in the alternative press and the American blogosphere. Given HRCs...

    According to the father of the Constitution the powers delegated to the central government are few and defined and those that remain in the States are numerous and indefinite. Federalist Papers #45 Madison also explained that those powers are reserved to external objects of war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce. He stated that the central governments power to tax is intended to be limited to those powers. Fed #45 Madison clarified the meaning of the often-abused clauses in 1792 during the Cod Fishery Bill debate. Specifically, that the General Welfare, Necessary and Proper, Commerce, and Tax and Spend clauses were...

    Haunting this years presidential contest is the sense that the U.S. government no longer belongs to the people and no longer represents them. And this uneasy feeling is not misplaced. It reflects the real state of affairs. We have lost the government we learned about in civics class, with its democratic election of representatives to do the voters will in framing laws, which the president vows to execute faithfully, unless the Supreme Court rules them unconstitutional. That small government of limited powers that the Founders designed, hedged with checks and balances, hasnt operated for a century. All its parts still...

    The American republic is on its knees. No methodical and orderly process like that in Article V can keep up with the pace of unconstitutional executive branch and scotus derived amendments to the Constitution. What is to be done? Apply for a Convention of States for one purpose? Events are moving far too fast to be limited by artificial bounds imposed on Article V that serve to delay a state convention. While Washington disregards the supreme law of the land, we are expected to follow it to the letter. How many decades must go by before the sovereign people respond...

    Mr. Khan, Im waiting for you to answer my charges or document when you publicly opposed the mistreatment of Muslim women. I will apologize if you have renounced your previous support for sharia law and the Muslim Brotherhood During the last few days, the media have been hyperventilating over the Trump-Khan controversy; but of course, they prefer dealing with that rather than Clintons compulsive lying! Furthermore, it seems to be acceptable for Hillary to call Patricia Smith (who lost her son in Benghazi because of Hillarys incompetence) a liar after Smiths speech at the RNC convention. The media is strangely...

Under the aggressive leadership of Alexander Hamilton, the secretary of the treasury, economic measures were taken that favored the few, while a effective party machine was organized and the army strengthened in such a way...

    Article V Blog ^ | August 3rd 2016 | Rodney Dodsworth
    As outlined in posts here and here, the electoral system of Article II was designed to produce presidents of the George Washington caliber, and not that of Barack Obama and possibly Hillary Clinton. The Framers strove to make the presidents fidelity to the Constitution coincident with his personal interest: enduring fame. The men to become the Framers president had already made their mark in their professions, communities and states. All that remained was to earn the respect and admiration of the entire nation and . . . history. The Framers president was above faction. Not only did he not owe...

    Maybe it's time Khizr Khan spent some time reading the Constitution Khizr Khan Esq. was doing fine at the Democrats convention last week until he decided to needlessly blacken Republican nominee Donald Trumps name. (A transcript of the speech is available here.) Khan, full of righteous indignation in the glare of the stage lights, had the high ground. People liked him. They identified with him. They felt his pain. They wanted to rally behind this father of a brave Muslim American soldier who gave his life in Iraq in 2004 to save his American brothers-in-arms.

    While Muslims try to use our Constitution against us, the reality is their arguments are empty. They cannot use against us what they don't fully understand, and what was written to protect us against totalitarian ideologies like theirs A woman came up to me at a Unite IE meeting last night very concerned about the attack Khizr Muazzam Khan laid on Trump with his TheConstitution forbids a religious test in the vetting of immigrants claim. Is it true? she asked. Khizr Khan is the father of a deceased Muslim U.S. soldier who slammed Donald Trump during his Democrat National Convention...
