Thus do we see how the period of the Articles of Confederation was not characterized by chaos and increasingly bad economic times, as historians tend to assume.
Rather, the Articles proved themselves to be a perfectly viable structure for a free society, encouraging trade and prosperity and adherence to the highest ideals of 1776.English: 13-cent Articles of Confederation com…English: 13-cent Articles of Confederation commemorative stamp issued September 30, 1977 commemorating the 200th anniversary of the drafting of the Articles of Confederation at York Town, Pennsylvania.
James Madison is commonly referred to as the Father of the Constitution in large measure because, in the secrecy of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, he kept the most complete set of notes.
He also had a very keen mind and a modest demeanor and an uncanny ability to solidify consensus around basic principles that are woven into the Constitution.
Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace.
How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.

The recent killing of an unarmed teenager by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer incited riots in and around the northern St. Louis area. As usual, the police version and the version of several eye witnesses lie in stark contrast. The police version is, the young man was struggling with the officer and trying to take his weapon from him–and the officer fired his weapon in self-defense. Several eyewitnesses say the young man had his hands in the air and was surrendering when the officer shot him.
The latter version is the more popular view of local residents, which prompted hundreds of people to riot. Yes, the victim was a young black man.It is very unfortunate and counter-productive when race becomes the focus of any story such as this. But it almost always does.
Our propaganda media, which loves to use the race card, almost always makes any such tragedy some kind of racial discrimination story. Sometimes it is; but more often than not, race had nothing to do with it.
It is also very unfortunate that among the vast majority of God-fearing, law-and-order Americans, policemen are automatically assumed to be guiltless in the face of accusations of police abuse. It’s almost like when a man puts on a badge and a gun, he becomes incapable of human misconduct
.Am I suggesting that a majority of police-killings are unjustified?
I am not. I still believe that the vast majority of our men and women in blue and brown for sheriff’s deputies are good-hearted, sincere, law-abiding people who do a tough job outstandingly well. The vast majority–but not all.Sadly, incidences of police abuse seem to be skyrocketing.
Examples of police arrogance and overreach are ubiquitous. More and more law enforcement personnel have an “us versus them” mentality. And the “them” are the citizens they the “us” took an oath to protect and serve. More and more policemen have a shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later mindset. And more and more of them look upon their fellow citizens as “the enemy.”True story: A Christian policeman was recently asked to speak at a church gathering.
The officer works in the traffic division of a small town. Mostly, he gives out parking and speeding tickets. As he opened his address to his fellow churchmen, he said, “I am a cop; I work among the dregs of society.”
Really? People who get parking tickets and drive 10 or 15 miles an hour over the speed limit are the “dregs” of society? That statement should have disqualified everything the officer had to say after that. But, sadly, the vast majority of Christians in the audience thundered their approval with choruses of “Amen!” This illustrates the depth of the problem we are now facing.Putting on a badge and a gun no more makes a man righteous than putting on a tool belt or a fire suit or a waitress apron or a clergyman’s frock or a welder’s helmet or a lab coat, etc. If anything, putting on a badge and a gun makes a man more accountable for his actions than an ordinary profession.While the incident in Missouri is still being investigated, there are plenty of examples of police conduct that is either questionable at least or downright Gestapo-like at worst.

My latest book—By Tyranny Out of Necessity: The Bastardy of “Martial Law”—is now available through Amazon.
Its title encapsulates its theme: namely, that “martial law” as most Americans conceive of it is a wholly illegitimate concept which appeals to some supposed, but false, “necessity” in order to establish a very real tyranny.Some might say that, in light of the present parlous condition of the Republic, and especially the pathetic indifference of average Americans to this sorry state of affairs, writing such a book will prove to be a fool’s errand on my part—or perhaps a hopeless task quixotically undertaken for the benefit of fools.
Obviously, I disagree. I consider the subject-matter of this book to be vital to this country’s survival.To be sure, By Tyranny Out of Necessity is not the most important book which I have written on the general subject of the place of the Militia in America’s constitutional edifice. The

declared that as a former teacher of Constitutional law, he actually respects the Constitution, unlike his predecessor in the Oval Office. Subsequent events make it fair to wonder exactly how he shows this respect.Some on the Left barely conceal their disdain for the world-changing handiwork of dead white males. Reverence for the Constitution isn’t universal

Below is a list of 267 protests against our porous borders and the open invitation by the Obama regime to people from all over the world to come to America and receive myriad social services and other incentives AT YOUR EXPENSE – our taxpayer dollars at work.This at a time when many Americans are unemployed and under-employed, government spending for entitlement programs is at an all time high, defense spending is dropping precipitously and domestic law enforcement is being militarized!
