VA Senator McEachin: The 10th Amendment has been “Deemed” Unconstitutional

From Henrico Senator, Donald McEachin, and courtesy of the Richmonder blog, comes the latest flaccid attempt to cast the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as alternately “unconstitutional”, “illegal” and “neo-confederate”.

States’ Rights Are Not Wrong

A very long, but well-documented article on the history of nullification – and its current efforts in ….of all places …. the Huffington Post. Read it – it’s really good, and gives great ammo for discussing this issue with your friends on the left. We all have them. Admit it. (I even have a few…

New Book Coming: Smear Artists Ready

My new book, Nullification, is coming June 29. Wait until you see the cover design. The design people are brilliant. The smears that will be hurled my way are entirely predictable. No one is allowed to adopt, much less advocate, an unapproved opinion, especially one directed at the heart of the regime, and anyone doing…
