That’s an interesting way of looking at it. Your last line in the book is, “The genie is out of the bottle.”The genie of centralization. Lincoln let it out of the bottle, for sure.Do you expect it to ever go back, as the United States?Seriously, the only way it could, would be secession. If a big chunk of the United States actually seceded from the federal government and pained it a bit and deprived it of a large amount of its revenue. Otherwise, how else could it possibly happen?Could it possibly return to limited government roots? I can’t see how it could possibly happen.I’m not very optimistic anymore. I was more optimistic when communism fell. I never thought I’d see communism collapse in my lifetime. But, I was thinking for a while, well, if it could happen there, we can get rid of our rotten system. But, the Republican Party, which is in power and in control of things, worked out the direction. They, now, no longer oppose the welfare state. In fact, they’re expanding it because they want to win the votes from all the people on welfare.Sons of Lincoln. I keep having to say it.Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us.

“Global governance” is taking shape much closer to home than most Americans realize, as Jerome Corsi proves in his New York Times best-selling book that reveals extensive government plans to promote the gradual integration of the U.S. with Mexico and Canada – the so-called “North American Union.” And today only, WND readers can get an autographed copy of “The Late Great USA” for the incredibly low price of $4.95!In the book, Corsi – WND’s senior reporter, who has two No. 1 New York Times bestsellers to his name “Unfit for Command” and “The Obama Nation” – exposes the multifaceted plan to turn the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American version of the European Union.Corsi has been widely featured on radio and TV and was ridiculed in August by President Bush as a “conspiracy theorists” for making his case against the Bush administration’s plans – a case Corsi makes with the government’s own documents.The U.S. government’s controversial – many say outrageous – unwillingness to enforce immigration laws and border security is, at least in part, a result of the plans Corsi exposes in “The Late Great USA,” published by WND Books.Understanding the plan to merge the U.S., Mexico and Canada, says Corsi, is “the only context in which the current immigration travesty makes sense – and it must be stopped.

WND Exclusive INVASION USAACLU, feds coordinated attack on Arizona crackdown on illegals’It’s one thing to share disrespect for rule of law, but it is quite another to collude’Posted: January 29, 201112:00 am EasternBy Bob Unruh© 2011 WorldNetDailyArizona governor Jan Brewer speaks to the media following a meeting with President Barack Obama on Arizona’s new immigration law, at the White House in Washington on June 3, 2010. UPI/Kevin Dietsch Photo via NewscomA public interest organization that uncovers and prosecutes corruption in government said it has confirmed from Department of Justice documents that the federal agency under Barack Obama’s command worked hand-in-hand with the American Civil Liberties Union to attack Arizona over its tough new immigration law.That law, SB 1070, now is being challenged before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. It created applause from secure borders advocates and a furor among a wide range of immigrant rights advocacy organizations last year when state officials adopted plans to let state law enforcement officials crack down on illegal aliens who already are violating federal law.Get the facts on the threat to America coming across its own borders, “In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security“Judicial Watch, the corruption-fighting Washington organization, earlier had submitted a filing in the court case on behalf of Arizona state Sen. Russell Pearce, the author of the state’s SB 1070, asking the appeals court to reverse a preliminary injunction granted by a district court in July, just as the law was about to take effect.That injunction has not yet been lifted.Story continues below

He was greeted by the members with smiles and great courtesy even though a growing number of Americans believe that he is not eligible to be President — an imposter.Here is a man with the greatest power on Earth, who can order Air Force One to take him anywhere on the planet, who has spent the last two years transforming America — yet he will not reveal his birth certificate. What is he hiding? And why is the Congress of the United States willing to sit and listen to this man who may very well be the cleverest imposter who ever existed?We know of men who have pretended to be medical doctors and surgeons, who have actually performed the duties of a physician before they were uncovered as frauds. Men such as that usually go to jail. Americans are a very trusting people, and we tend to believe what people tell us about themselves.Yet, we have a Constitution that describes the qualifications of a President. Article II, Section I states: “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”Well, how do we know for sure that a candidate for the office of President was born in the United States? By his birth certificate. But no one in Congress or on the Supreme Court has ever seen Barack Obama’s original long-form birth certificate. Should he not have made it public when he sought the nomination for the presidency? Why was it not demanded of him by the proper authorities? Would his birth certificate actually reveal that he is not eligible to be President?…

Paul’s not singling Israel out here; it’s Blitzer who brings it up, and Paul’s careful to offer praise before making his case that we simply can’t afford it anymore. He knows he’s suspect on this point because of his surname and has tried to deal with it behind the scenes. Remember this tidbit from that GQ hit piece on him last year? Ron Paul, in addition to his extreme views on the federal government, has been a harsh critic of the Republican Party’s “military adventurism,” and in the past Rand has faithfully echoed his father’s views. He opposed the war in Iraq, once characterized the September 11 attacks as “blowback for our foreign policy,” and scoffed at the threat of Iranian nukes. And yet here he was in Washington, seeking out a secret meeting with some of the Ron Paul Revolutionaries’ biggest bogeymen. At a private office in Dupont Circle, he talked foreign policy with Bill Kristol, Dan Senor, and Tom Donnelly, three prominent neocons who’d been part of an effort to defeat him during the primary. “He struck me as genuinely interested in trying to understand why people like us were so apoplectic,” Senor says of their two-hour encounter. “He wanted to get educated about our problem with him. He wasn’t confrontational, and he wasn’t disagreeable. He didn’t seem cemented in his views. He was really in absorption mode.” The following month, he met with officials from the powerful lobbying group AIPAC the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which has frequently clashed with Ron Paul over what the group views as his insufficient support of Israel. Paul, according to one person familiar with the AIPAC meeting, “told them what they wanted to hear: ‘I’m more reasonable than my father on the things you care about.’ He was very solicitous.”

Ralph Peters challenges Obama to stop hiding behind Hillary on Egypt crisisExaminer ^ | January 29, 2011 | Marc SchenkerPosted on Saturday, January 29, 2011 7:11:13 AM by Suvroc10Col. Ralph Peters challenges Obama to take charge of Egypt crisis, stop hiding behind Hillary. Every time there’s a crisis that involves an uprising somewhere on the planet especially among the Arabs in the Middle East, it seems that Peters is Fox News’ go-to-guy for no-bull analysis on the subject. And so it was regarding the situation in Egypt, with Hosni Mubarak’s grip on power being severely challenged in several areas of the country. Appearing on The O’Reilly Factor, Peters had some pointed advice for Obama about what he should do to act in the US’ interests. First, the president should stop hiding behind his “henchmen,” the word he used when referring to Hillary Clinton, who seems to be more engaged on the situation than the president himself. And two, the colonel said Obama should stop with his annoying policy of “splitting the difference,” as in not being firmly committed to the winning side in the struggle.Excerpt Read more at examiner.com …

And don’t miss Steve Green on “Krauthammer Correcting Krauthammer.” Charles Krauthammer has long been recognized as one of America’s most astute and authoritative political columnists, acknowledged as a cut above the majority of his scrivening colleagues. And yet there is something cryptic and elusive about him, like the coy Waldo in the famous puzzle. Perhaps he resents being put in boxes and wishes to preserve his independence of judgment, or his unpredictability.Still, one detects a growing tendency to pronounce upon critical affairs without sufficient grounding in the penetralia of things along with a positional inconsistency that renders him at times maddeningly unlocatable, like a slippery electron in a split-screen experiment.In other words, it is becoming increasingly difficult to determine where he can be reliably found on the ideological scale. Is he a conservative, a centrist, a “situational libertarian,” or all of these at different times? Is he a fiscal conservative like Terry Corcoran and, simultaneously, a social liberal like Alan Dershowitz? He is certainly far to the right of the New York Times, as any thinking person must be, but then he writes for the ultra-liberal Washington Post. Does he share a secret sympathy with choice portions of its editorial line or is he the paper’s resident conservative, whose purpose is to impart a semblance of impartiality?Excerpt Read more at pajamasmedia.com …

They’re half of the Marines’ 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, a mini-armada that recently dispatched 1,400 of its 2,000 Marines into Afghanistan. But they’ve got a “fair number” of helicopters, and Marines, still aboard. “They’re not in the on-deck circle yet,” a military official says. “They’re kind of getting ready to come out of the dugout.” Meetings in Washington through Friday night and into the weekend will determine if they’re ordered to carry out a NEO — a non-combat but potentially dicey evacuation operation.Read more: http://swampland.blogs.time.com/2011/01/28/marines-ready-for-egypt-rescue-mission/#ixzz1CSiBGtOWExcerpt Read more at swampland.blogs.time.com …

I would imagine that some Right Wing-other than the acceptable liberal radio stations would be shut down or can they?Can you My fellow FR conspirators think of methodologies of maintaining connections to information which can not easily be cut off by our government agencies?In some countries, people have taken over Radio and Television stations but that requires physically attacking and provoking Police & Military action at some point.Put on your thinking caps and lets see if there are any of you out there that can devise a plan of action for such an event.My one thought so far is that the government might not shut down the telephone system immediately because that would directly affect so many people that that act in itself would be more devastating to citizens than would the loss of the internet. Therefor a “Tweet” link could be our own second line of information. I’m not sure if the “Tweet” system involves the internet in any way. Is it independent of computer technology and strictly Phone System dependant?Since I don’t “tweet”, I just don’t know the answer to that question.Can you devise other ideas? and let us share your ideas “Just in Case !”

And as we’ve seen in Egypt, that means that your Internet connection can be the first to go. Whether you’re trying to check in with your family, contact your friends, or simply spread the word, here are a few ways to build some basic network connectivity when you can’t rely on your cellular or landline Internet connections.Do-It-Yourself Internet With Ad-Hoc Wi-Fi…Advanced freedom fighters can set up a portal Web page on their network..Remember when you stashed your old modems in the closet because you thought you might need them some day? In the event of a total communications blackout–as we’re seeing in Egypt–you’ll be glad you did. Older and simpler tools, like dial-up Internet or even ham radio, could still work, since these “abandoned” tech avenues aren’t being policed nearly as hard.In order to get around the total shutdown of all of the ISPs within Egypt, several international ISPs are offering dial-up access to the Internet..Unfortunately, such dial-up numbers can also be fairly easily shut down by the government, so you could also try returning to FidoNet…You could also take inspiration from groups that are working to create an ad-hoc communications…using Ham Radio, since the signals are rarely tracked and extremely hard to shut down or block. Most of these efforts are still getting off the ground, but hackers are already cobbling together ways to make it a viable form of communication into and out of the country.In the land of no Internet connection, the man with dial-up is king.

ACLU Must Start Protecting “Enumerated Rights”Paul Craig RobertsPrison Planet.comSaturday, January 29, 2011While people in Tunisia and Egypt have taken to the streets in attempts to gain their liberty, Americans are losing their liberty with minimal protest.Even the American Civil Liberties Union seems unfocused. At a time when we are being surrounded by a police state and the federal judiciary is being taken over by the Federalist Society and unitary executive theory that places the president above the law, we need a heightened appreciation of civil liberty and the Constitution on the part of the American people. The American people need to come together and to take a united stand against the police state and unaccountable executive branch power.During my many years of writing in defense of law as a shield of the people instead of a weapon in the hands of the state, I have identified two important reasons that Americans are losing the protection of the legal principles that made them free.One reason is that a significant portion of the population, especially among those who think of themselves as conservative, there is indifference and even hostility to civil liberties. The other reason is that Benthamite thinking has made inroads into the Blackstonian conception of law that is the basis of the Constitution. Jeremy Bentham argued for pre-emptive arrest before a crime is committed, for torture in order to obtain confession, and for subverting the attorney-client privilege. Bentham’s views, fiercely hostile to those of our Founding Fathers, are now represented on the federal bench federal appeals court judge Jay S. Bybee, for example and in prestigious law schools John Yoo, UC Berkeley, for example.In chapter 3 of The Tyranny of Good Intentions, Larry Stratton and I contrast Bentham’s views with those of William Blackstone and our Founding Fathers. This article is about the division of the American public on the matter of civil liberty.Court decisions by “activist judges” in behalf of criminals, abortion, homosexual rights, and against school prayer, all in the name of constitutional rights and civil liberty, have resulted in many Americans identifying civil liberty with procedures that provide protections and immunities for criminals and with judicially created rights that are destroying morality. All the fights over Supreme Court appointments have to do with “social issues” such as abortion. The enumerated rights in the Constitution, such as habeas corpus, due process, free speech and association, long ago receded into the background and play scant role in Senate confirmations of Supreme Court appointees.ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW
