Doug Casey on the America That Was – Now the United (Police) State of America… (“At the beginning. America was founded as a confederation of independent countries – that’s what a state is. Or was,”)
…..L: True enough. Where to begin?
Doug: At the beginning. America was founded as a confederation of independent countries – that’s what a state is. Or was, in our language. The original United States of America was a confederation of countries that banded together for protection against larger and more powerful countries they feared might be hostile. This is not a disputed interpretation of history, but as solid a fact as the study of history produces – and yet a largely neglected one.
L: We did cover this ground briefly in our conversations on the Civil War and the Constitution.
Doug: So we did… the short version being that the US Constitution was essentially a coup; the delegates to what we now call the Constitutional Convention were not empowered to replace the existing government – only to improve upon the Articles of Confederation between the then-independent states.
The framers of the Constitution drafted it with the notion of a national government already in place, but calmed fears of loss of state sovereignty by calling the new government the “United States of America” – a verbal sleight of hand that worked for over half a century.
Then the southern states decided to exercise what these words imply; their right to leave the union. While slavery was and is a wholesale criminal activity I object to in every way possible, the southern states did have the right to secede, both legally and ethically. But the question was settled by force, not reason, and the wrong side won.
L: Another coup?

Obama, who is left-handed, made the sign of the cross with his left hand, which out of respect for the centuries-long Christian practice, no one ever does.
Obama’s left-handed sign of the cross was made over a gobbling turkey during the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation Ceremony, that takes place at the White House every year shortly before Thanksgiving, having been resurrected by George H.W. Bush in 1989……….

Alex covers the storm of the century, Hurricane Sandy, as it moves ominously toward the east coast.
It was with the utmost sadness that I watched Ron Paul give his Farewell Address to Congress last week. As he concluded his remarks and walked away from the Well of the House, I wept. I thought to myself: “There goes the greatest champion of liberty in a century; we may never see his likes again.” I wasn’t weeping for Dr. Paul though; I was weeping for America.
Unfortunately for us, Ron’s one weakness was his oratorical skills–or lack thereof. Then again, it’s my observation that most geniuses are much better writers than they are speakers. And make no mistake about it: Ron Paul is a genius. As I understand it, Thomas Jefferson was no great orator either. But as the principal author of the Declaration of Independence, there was certainly nothing shabby about his writing. And in those days, the American citizenry was more acutely attuned to the principles of liberty than is this generation. I don’t think it is much of a stretch to suggest that had Jefferson lived in this generation, he would never have been elected President either. Ron’s failure to obtain the Presidency is not a testament to his failure; it is a testament to the failure of this generation to recognize and appreciate the principles of liberty for which Ron stood.
Furthermore, in my opinion…………]EXCERPT!!!

On this Thanksgiving Eve, I am reminded of how blessed I have been to be able to rub shoulders with many of the political and religious giants of the Twentieth (and now Twenty-First) Century. During the past 30-plus years, I have been allowed to get to know a good many of the men and women that would have to be regarded as giants in the fields of religion and politics. Many of these have already passed on; a few remain. In the field of politics, the giant of them all is Texas Congressman Ron Paul.
There is no doubt in my mind that history will regard Dr. Paul as the greatest congressman in US history. Ron Paul has done more to guard and defend liberty and constitutional government than perhaps any man since Thomas Jefferson. Dr. Paul’s legacy and influence will remain after most congressmen and senators have been long forgotten. What Patrick Henry was to Colonial America, Ron Paul has been to modern America. I am so grateful for the opportunity to get to personally know this man and to be able to call him my friend.
Every gun owner has the opportunity to warn would-be thieves. Putting a sign that reads “I’m a lifetime member of the NRA” on your front lawn may very well scare off thieves, but on the other side of the coin having lots of signs on your property typically doesn’t look very nice.
What about our readers? Can thieves look at your house and immediately know that they’re going to get shot if they try anything stupid? If you do show any warning signs on your property (even subtle ones like an American flag), why do you do it? And for the other gun owners out there, what’s stopping you from putting up a “Trespassers will be shot” sign?

If you’re a thief, there are a couple of warning signs that you should watch out for. A dog bowl and a leash in the front yard would tip you off that you’re probably going to get bitten. A sign that reads, “Trespassers will be shot!” is pretty self-explanatory.
The home of 77-year-old Lloyd McCarty is similarly filled with warning signs. He flies an American flag on the front porch, he has a U.S. Marine Corpspatch tacked to the wall, and he also keeps a framed picture of himself in his glory day as a Marine. If the home invader had noticed these clues then maybe he would have picked another house to rob.
Mexican legal and illegal migrants will become the dominate tribe and gain majority status by 2040. Muslims will add at least another 13 million to reach over 20 million at current immigration. The numbers of refugees coming from Africa will continue to rise into the millions. You can expect millions from Eithopia, Sudan, Somalia, Congo, Senegal, Angola and Niger. Why? Because as their numbers grow from 1 billion to 2 billion and on to 3 billion people—their numbers will create mass starvation—and therefore, we will take them into our country to save their lives. Today, we take 50,000 world refugees annually just because they are starving and dying to come to America—known as “Diversity Visas.”
But the caveat to this harsh reality remains: every year, all those third world countries around the world produce a net gain of yet another 80 million starving and desperate people. So, no matter how many immigrants we inject into America, they reload themselves with another 80 million. You can see it in living color with this five minute video. This video should be seen by every American who cares about our future as a civilization.
In a five minute astoundingly simple yet brilliant video, “Immigration, Poverty, and Gum Balls,” Roy Beck, director of http://www.numbersusa.org, graphically illustrates the impact of mass immigration. Take five minutes to see for yourself.

In a recent column, I referred to this excellent presentation: Can The United States Constitution Destroy Itself? Anyone who has taken the time to read and listen to the words of Muslim clerics and the Muslim Brotherhood fully and clearly understand the number one goal is to take over these united States of America and replace the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights with the sickness called Islam.
The web site highlighted above gives you the documents to back up what millions of Americans know and are fighting against. I also covered a great deal in this column.
Not only are more Americans coming to understand Islam is not a religion, they are coming out and saying what many of us have for years: The Islamic Movement in this country is sedition.
Why Islam Should NOT Be Protected Under the US Constitution

But even in the event the federal government were somehow curbed drastically, by secession, civil action, whatever, think ye not the state, county, city, etc, governments even as homeowner associations have done,(now thoroughly “indoctrinated” socialists)—will not, the people themselves as well as government servants, politicians, etc. will they not quickly take up the slack????
