Time after time I see this: “Sovereignty resolutions are a pointless waste of time. The Federal Government has yet to acknowledge one and they aren’t even legally binding.” Such a statement can only come from a very narrow view of our current reality. Sovereignty, above all else legal and otherwise, is a state of mind. …Details
Every attempt is being made by the corporate media to peg the 10th Amendment movement as just another incarnation of the Republican party. Attacks on liberty minded folks blindly color us with the same contempt previously directed at the Neo-Conservatives and other right wing groups. There’s just one problem with their strategy- this movement is…Details
When I first heard about Mr. Obama, upstart Senator from Illinois I liked the story. An American tale indeed, immigrant father meets American mother. Even the bloodline connection to Dick Cheney was a part of the improbable saga. Way before the presidential primary campaign I decided to subscribe to his podcast, but after listening something…Details
Everything has been turned upside down in the past 12 months- Dems and Reps have swapped dugouts along with the establishment media, from overlord to underdog and vice versa. So much is different that it can be tough for a champion of state sovereignty to know what steps to take, so I have assembled a…Details
Words are the only weapon that matters in our modern age. This is demonstrated by the enormous emphasis on properly managed public opinion practiced by even the most advanced military force in the world, ours. No amount of guns or bombs can overcome a bad PR situation, not with the advent of the internet. For…Details
I was scanning the ‘nets and found some interesting responses to MT’s Firearms Freedom Act that I thought I would share.
“How much is Al Qaeda paying this “Grass roots movement” to try to make an ‘end run’ on the US Governments Constitutional rights? (Yes, I said what I meant). I do not believe that ‘Most Montanans’ feel they way Al Qaedas paid stooges do. Bin Laden knows that the only way to “defeat Freedom of thought” is to divide the USA and conquer from within like he is doing in the Mideast.. “
Hurry everybody, to your designated ‘Al Qaeda’ meeting points.
“Is the Constitution an idol to worship? I hate to play the role of anarchist, but to kill is also breaking a law set forth thousands of years ago, by the true parchment of law. Guns are only made for killing. In the hands of laymen and criminals, they are deadly for anybody, not just to the true enemy, like Al Qaeda or insurgents. Civilians owning guns is vigilant and treacherous.”
Before I could generate the thought myself, I read the next post which summed up my response perfectly.Details
I keep hearing about campaigns to do this and that, gatherings to draw up a new constitution and congresses of the people from all 50 states and we at Tenth Amendment Center have not shown much interest. ‘Why?’ you might ask. The sovereignty movement is a remarkable shift in the way things are done and…Details
Many conversations have taken place about the magnitude of the 912 rally in DC and many questions have been asked about how such a massive assembly could have gone ‘unnoticed’ by the corporate media. There is a simple explanation- it was certainly noticed at the top and there were deliberate decisions NOT to report on…Details
Sabre rattling about Iran’s nuclear program was once again everywhere in the corporate media last week. Despite sounding strangely familiar it was Obama’s administration this time, perceived by many as an ‘anti-war’ candidate before the general election last year. So much for that. Many have analyzed the Iran nuclear scenario and can find no motive…Details
