The NC Tenth Amendment Center is organizing a Nullify Now! Rally in Raleigh this fall. Nullify Now! is a national tour, sponsored by the Tenth Amendment Center and…Continue
Yesterday was the 102nd birthday of Ronald Reagan, the greatest President of my lifetime, to whom I owe personal and professional thanks for my marriage (to one of his White House secretaries) and my Washington career (beginning as a Reagan Administration political appointee). His personally autographed photo congratulating us on our marriage is one of our most cherished possessions.
Almost two years ago, I researched all of his speeches and writings available on the internet…Continue
It wasn't difficult to see liberals standing on the Mall in Washington, bundled in warm clothing and loudly cheering President Obama's Inaugural Address, with the promise of larger and more activist central government deployed to implement a "progressive" agenda. But I saw another group smiling softly deep in the background. It was the Crony Capitalists, watching from warm, comfortable Fortune 100 boardrooms across America and on Wall Street, and their K Street lobbyists in …Continue
December 15 was Bill of Rights Day. It marks the 221st anniversary of the day when the first ten amendments - our Bill of Rights - were ratified in 1791.
The Bill of Rights…Continue
This is a letter that I have drafted based upon my constitutional analyses of Obamacare (found here) and Nullification (found here). My goal is to provide us with a united front to attack this unconstitutional federal attack and defeat…
After a long train of usurpations of power by the federal government, which culminated in legislation known as Obamacare the people took to the streets in protest. The people appealed to the Legislature and were ignored. The legislation ultimately made its way to the Supreme Court. We then witnessed a colossal rewriting of our founding documents in the majority opinion to the Obamacare mandate. …Continue
King Barry the Waster, has floated his new “gun ban list.” As evidenced in HR 1022 which was proposed in 2007, the Liberals are bent on disarming US citizens. What many citizens and legislators do not understand is that the federal government has no right to prevent any law-abiding citizen from owning or possessing ANY firearm. The…Continue
In my opinion, the single biggest problem with the Republican Party today is that its leaders claim to represent the cause of limited government, or "constitutional conservatism," but either don't know what that really means or hypocritically ignore its meaning to advance an "un-conservative" political agenda. The Obamacare decision by the Supreme Court revealed an incredible disconnect between the claims of top Beltway Republicans and their stands on the specific use of federal power to…Continue
Praise is due the New Jersey state government for exercising the 10th amendment giving states the power to protect their citizens from an illegal, abusive federal government.

May God Bless you, all Patriots; and may He Save The American States. Elections are a proven rigged hoax by all the big Media outlets: http://youtu.be/m67C5pHJ-0k
And, we have tried that over and over and over again, since the 1913 Trifecta of Tyranny which have placed us all in usurpation, tyranny and “The Matrix”, our unsustainable computer generated dream world made of godless wealth printed and digitized out of thin air,…Continue

In the SCOTUS was there one single Republican from the States suing the Federal Government or either house of the U.S. Congress who even whispered a word about the fact that according to the 9th and 10th Amendments, in The Bill of Rights, which refer to the enumerated list in Article I Section 8, that the U.S. Government is only allowed to spend money on or handle only eighteen enumerated items that We The People granted them for the privilege to serve us? NO, there was…Continue

In the Obamacare decision on Thursday, the five conservative Supreme Court Justices rejected the unlimited scope of the Commerce Clause and the Necessary & Proper Clause envisioned by proponents of federal tort reform bills (especially caps on damages in medical malpractice lawsuits). Justice Roberts was especially deferential to federalism, employing the terms "state sovereignty" and "enumerated powers" often in his decision. Proponents of federal tort reform are among the big losers in…Continue
House Republicans on the Energy & Commerce Committee have uncovered evidence of closed-door negotiations between major drugmakers and the Obama Administration in connection with the enactment of Obamacare, under which the former promised to back it with $80 billion in revenues in exchange for the Administration's promise to protect the industry in various ways, e.g., oppose the…Continue
On Monday, 43 Catholic dioceses, organizations and universities sued the Obama administration, in 12 separate suits, to block the imposition of the Obamacare mandate to offer, in health insurance plans, drugs and devices which are forbidden by Catholic teachings, such as contraception and abortifacients. The plaintiffs include the University of Notre Dame (my law school alma mater), the Archdioceses of Washington and New York City, and a number of local affiliates of the national Catholic…Continue
Two things, actually.
First, none of the three are proper subjects for the federal government under the Constitution. Neither domestic relations law governing marriage, nor health care, nor tort law are matters enumerated for the federal government.
Powerful groups on the liberal or conservative side ignore the limits of the Constitution in order to change that in each case. Gay marriage advocates want the federal judiciary or Congress to override state marriage…Continue
It's an article of faith among those who propose federal limits on awards in medical malpractice lawsuits. They always proclaim that the Texas state law limiting such awards resulted in thousands of doctors moving to the state. Examples:
"This last year, 21,000 more physicians practicing medicine in Texas because they know they can do what they love and not be sued." …Continue
Columnist Timothy Carney of the Washington Examiner, who has a strong following among conservatives, has followed the "K Street Republicans vs. Tea Party" for several years and wrote again about the conflict last week. And Carney identifies some of the practical points of conflict between the two groups: "The GOP establishment rallies industry donors…Continue
In a special memorandum issued to House Republicans this week, the four senior House Republicans (Reps. Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy and Hensarling) laid out their plan for implementing a ten-year federal budget under Rep. Paul Ryan's plan and that would avoid cuts in national security and certain domestic programs. In so doing, they thoroughly trashed the concept of state sovereignty over their own…Continue
This week we've been deluged with the reports on the oral argument before the Supreme Court on the Obamacare case. And last week, the House GOP leadership pushed a bill combining federal limits on medical malpractice lawsuits with an attractive bill to repeal a key component of Obamacare.
The two belong together. After all, Obamacare and federal tort reform are equally and fundamentally based on the expansive interpretation of the Commerce Clause…Continue
