Our 2nd American Revolution simply affirms US laws, ideals

“Constitutional governments and aristocracies are commonly overthrown owing to some deviation from justice…the rich, if the constitution gives them power, are apt to be insolent and avaricious… In all well-attempered governments there is nothing which should be more jealously maintained than the spirit of obedience to law, more especially in small matters; for transgression creeps […]

EU Parliament to send passenger data to US

Until now, passengers flying to the United States had to fill out the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) form as a paperless replacement to the I-94 form to be checked against the US watch list and pay a fee in order to enter the United States.

The Bully Politics of Education Reform

America is a bully nation. America is the embodiment of might-makes-right. When another country (USSR) invades Afghanistan, America is filled with righteous indignation, but when America invades Afghanistan, well, all is right with the world. America has bred the bully tactic of vigilantism in the sanctified Petri dish of law (Stand Your Ground), and the […]

College Board bars AP Government from teaching US Constitution and US wars

I have been removed from the Advanced Placement (AP) Government listserve for documenting US Constitution promises compared with these recent US ‘laws’ and actions: assassination of Americans upon the non-reviewable dictate of the president, control-drown/waterboarding anyone dictated as a “terrorist” despite all US and international case law finding this to be torture, NDAA 2012 and 2006 Military Commissions Act that […]

Obama Executive ‘Order’: US can seize any person, any resource, anytime

“A mere demarcation on parchment of the constitutional limits (of government) is not a sufficient guard against those encroachments which lead to a tyrannical concentration of all the powers of government in the same hands.” – James Madison, Federalist Paper #48, 1788.

Many forms of Occupy protests subjected to new bill making protests illegal

A bill passed last week in the US House of Representatives and the Senate would make it a felony to participate in many forms of protest associated with the Occupy Wall Street protests of last year. Several commentators have dubbed it the “anti-Occupy” law, but its implications are far broader. The bill — H.R. 347, […]

Two 30-second MTV ads warn Americans what NDAA authorizes under so-called ‘law’

video here. MTV created two public service announcements to encourage young Americans to understand and stand for their civil rights. The 2006 Military Commissions Act and 2012 NDAA “legislated” dictatorial authority to declare any person a “terrorist supporter,” seize such persons, and hold them indefinitely and without rights. The two-minute video here is Defense Secretary Panetta claiming US law allows […]

2-minute video: FOX edits, fakes applause for John Bolton pro-war response

The 2-minute video is a public meeting of former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton responding to a US war veteran’s question. The video shows that FOX then edits-out the audience response to replace it with applause from a different person’s question. The proof is that the applause-segment shows  a different person walking away […]

Teachers: how do you teach US War Crimes, destruction of US Constitution?

with video here. We teach limited government under a constitution that secures unalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. This first right means that one’s life cannot be taken by tyrannical government. The two-minute video is Defense Secretary Panetta claiming US law allows assassinating Americans if government merely says an American is guilty of a crime. Acts upon what the […]
