Now they will go on vacation and tell themselves how much they “tried”.
What people fail to understand is that the House of Representatives can fire any elected House representative by a majority vote. Mental incompetence or corruption is a basis for this vote in Mad Maxine’s case. The classic example of a domestic enemy embedded in the government.
Incremental collectivism is difficult to spot; it is sloth-like in its deliberation, but it does move and sometimes it helps to look back down the road to see how far it has come. Maybe that’s also the only way to see where it’s going.
Americans continue to think they live in a republic, but the republic is alive only when the Constitution is being faithfully read and adhered to, not when it is largely disregarded or interpreted into nothingness, especially where case law is considered “settled.”
What clause allows for an establishment of a Department of Education? Well, the “necessary and proper” clause, of course. Except that the necessary and proper clause only applies to those limited powers enumerated in the body of the Constitution. Same with the “Commerce Clause” they have used to implement all manner of collectivism.
For the better part of two years, potential students have asked me to put an e-course online because they couldn’t make it to a physical course. I was hesitant because I wasn’t sure that I could do an e-course that would come close to the level of training in my classroom courses.
But last month I started working on the Area Intelligence Course, which is loosely the first day of the SHTF Intelligence Course… but packed with more detailed instruction, worksheets, and ebooks.
Here’s what I figured… every military operation, every security operation, every intelligence operation is built on intelligence that provides decision makers the knowledge to plan operations. Without that vital intelligence on who’s who and what’s where, operations get very messy.
I’m absolutely positive that this course adds great value to the skills and knowledge of those interested in having excellent localized intelligence.
Until 01 August, the Area Intelligence Course is on sale for $99 for all pre-orders.
After 01 August, the course will be discounted at $149 for all pre-orders.
After 14 August, when the course officially launches, the course price will return to $199, which is still a great price for all the instruction and knowledge being made available.
There is literally no better place to get started in intelligence than learning to analyze a community and identify local threats in Area Intelligence.
PLUS there’s a special bonus that I’m offering on 14 August that I haven’t announced. On 14 August, everyone who pre-orders the Area Intelligence Course will be notified via email. Let me just say that it will greatly enrich the value and your understanding of organizing localized intelligence.
Always Out Front,
In the most vocal opposition to president Donald Trump yet, former CIA Director John Brennan said that if the White House tries to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, government officials should refuse to follow the president orders, as they would be – in his view – “inconsistent” with the duties of the executive branch.
“I think it’s the obligation of some executive branch officials to refuse to carry that out. I would just hope that this is not going to be a partisan issue. That Republicans, Democrats are going to see that the future of this government is at stake and something needs to be done for the good of the future,” Brennan told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at the Aspen Security Forum, effectively calling for a coup against the president should Trump give the order to fire Mueller.

The elites of today envision themselves modern day Pharaohs willing to enslave us all for their grand vision. What is that vision? Who knows? Who cares? The fact that they feel entitled to redirect our lives to serve their vision is enough for me, because in order to achieve their vision our lives must be redirected through voluntary financial benefit or force and either one will work for them.
The first thing they want to destroy is the concept of individual self-determination; which is the only goal, in my mind, worth pursuing. It is the fact that I see this as the goal and they see it as an obstacle that propels us toward conflict.
Unfortunately, when individuals are concentrated on pursuing their own individual goals of self-determination it creates a vacuum that attracts those who envision aggregating that energy, that resource, as they see it and putting it to use to build a pyramid of their design. So it is an inevitable cycle toward war.
The richest vein in the history of predatory mining is just about played out.
A gigantic mine engages in every conceivable destructive practice—strip mining, heap leaching, tailings dams and ponds and so on. It pays such low wages its workers only make ends meet by borrowing from the company at usurious rates. The mine has befouled the air and poisoned the water. Many workers are chronically sick and their children are afflicted with birth defects. The mine’s absentee owners know that the mine is played out and the tailings dam is structurally unsound. They close the mine, count their profits, and move on. A month later the dam gives way. A deluge of noxious sludge inundates the town below the dam, sparing no one and rendering the area uninhabitable.
The government is a strip mining operation, plundering the dwindling residual value of a once wealthy America. Forget ostensible justifications, policy is crafted to allow those who control the government to maximize their take and put the costs on their victims, leaving devastation in their wake.

A great deal of one’s ability to feel secure – i.e., prepared for likely developments rather than threatened by them – depends upon the stability of one’s surroundings, both physically and conceptually. You can be the biggest, toughest, meanest SOB in all of Creation, armed to the teeth, ready, willing and able to fight a grizzly barehanded and utterly confident that you’d prevail, and you’ll still value the sense that things around you won’t change too swiftly or too radically. This is especially the case with persons who have loved ones to support, nurture, and protect.
Conservatism in politics arises from the sense that things must not be permitted to change rapidly. The political conservative holds, with the two great Thomases (Aquinas and Jefferson), that stability in the law is valuable in and of itself. Even if some change in the law appears necessary or highly desirable, he’s loath to introduce it in a fashion likely to destabilize the settled arrangements of millions. He recognizes both the tendency of men to adapt to their surroundings and the stress and fatigue that rapid adaptation engenders. He’s probably experienced some of it himself.

Which is the biggest abomination: Healthcare or the Federal government? The answer is obvious since the Federal government spawns all of the problems the country is facing.
During a conference call on Wednesday, conservative leaders from the Club for Growth, Family Research Council, Tea Party Patriots, ForAmerica, FreedomWorks, and Senate Conservatives fund demanded that the “traitorous” Republican senators who refused to vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) keep their promise to the American people.
“Traitorous senators…they need to repeal Obamacare,” said Tea Party Patriots Co-founder Jenny Beth Martin. “Our activists also realize that it seems to be really easy for these senators and their staff to sit in Washington and be exempt from Obamacare…it is completely unjust to live exempt from the law, while others suffer because of the law.”
Former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power’s involvement in the unmasking by former Obama administration officials of sensitive national security information is raising red flags over what insiders view was an attempt by the former administration to undermine President Donald Trump and key figures on his team, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the situation.
Power appears to be central to efforts by top Obama administration officials to identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources.

“If the central government has the authority to tell a state it must accept permits from all the other states, then it also has the authority to tell a state it may not accept a concealed permit from any other states. If the central government can do these things it can set up a national concealed carry permit scheme and in essence bring into existence a national arms registry. That is exactly where this is headed.” Attorney Richard D. Fry 1
Some are touting the federal Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017 (HR 38) as a bill which would expand our right to carry. But if you will walk with me for a few minutes, I’ll show you a better path to take.
Let us look at the applicable First Principles, to which I propose we return.
1. Gun control is not an enumerated power delegated to the federal government
Our federal Constitution doesn’t delegate to the federal government any power over the Country at Large 2 to restrict our arms. Accordingly, all pretended federal laws, regulations, orders, opinions, or treaties which purport to do so are unconstitutional as outside the scope of powers delegated. They are also unconstitutional as in violation of the Second Amendment.
The only power the federal government has over the Country at Large respecting arms is set forth at Article I, §8, clause 16 with respect to providing for the “organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia”. Pursuant to this clause, Congress passed the Militia Act of 1792 which required every able-bodied male citizen (with a few exceptions) between the ages of 18 and 45 to acquire a rifle, bayonet, ammo, ammo pouch, and report to his local Militia Unit for training. 3
2. What does your State Constitution say about the right to keep and bear arms?
