This week, I returned for my 11th appearance on the Tom Woods show to discuss our 2017 State of the Nullification Movement report. From Tom: Michael Boldin, founder and executive director of the Tenth Amendment Center, talks about a wide variety of resistance movements at the state level against the federal government. Nullification: it’s happening!…Details
Tom Woods interviewed me for episode 1030 of his podcast. We talked about my local efforts to confront the surveillance state here in my hometown of Lexington, Kentucky, the lawsuit the city filed against me because of my efforts and more generally the power of local activism.Details
On this episode of Tenther Tuesday, Mike Maharrey and Michael Boldin talk about the Second Amemdment and its erosion over the last 60 years. It’s no longer just a matter of protecting it, we have to take steps to restore it. They also expand on last week’s discussion of state action to bring down Obamacare.…Details
That’s how Tom Woods titled my interview with him for the Tenth Amendment Center’s 10 Year Anniversary last month. It was a fun episode to record, and we covered a little of what led me to starting TAC, influences, strategy, and more.Details
In an interview with then-Mises Institute vice-president Jeffrey Tucker, Tom Woods talks about his book Nullification and the concepts behind the political doctrine in connection with the Tenth Amendment. They also go through the history of nullification, starting with the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions, written by James Madison and Thomas Jefferson respectively, in response to the Alien and Sedition Act.
AzBlueMeanie claims in the article Neoconfederate insurrectionists in Arizona Legislature revive discredited ‘nullification’ theory that:
All elected officials in Arizona take the following oath of office:
“I do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and defend them against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of the office of __________ according to the best of my ability, so help me God.”
And yet the Arizona legislature is populated by Neoconfederate insurrectionists who have violated their oath of office and are actively engaged in acts of domestic insurrection against the United States government.
Let’s get this straight now… AzBluemeanie believes that a state elected official who stands up against what he or she perceives to be a clear violation of the U.S. Constitution has “violated their oath of office and are actively engaged in acts of domestic insurrection against the United States government”. That is a pretty bold statement to make with no evidence to back it up. Nice job!
Let us bring some credentials into the discussion.Details
