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
The Revolutions of July

The author of the Declaration of Independence in another July, thirteen-years earlier, was an eyewitness to the political unrest leading to the storming of a political prison called The Bastille.
Though the fortress housed only seven inmates at the moment, including four forgers, it remains the iconic symbol of the beginning of The French Revolution.

As the United States of America celebrates her 238th birthday, one critical question comes to mind.Would the Founding Fathers, some of whom pledged their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” to each other in the Declaration of Independence, recognize the nation they forged in an inspirational foundry of the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
Attorney Michael Peroutka — Interposition and the Family Dog… “So let’s suppose you think it wise to buy a watchdog so that when your little girl plays in the front yard the dog can protect and defend her from any intruders who may wish to do her harm.After a little time goes by the puppy you bought becomes a full grown animal. …”

Today, I’d like to tell you a story about interpositionYou’re a good parent. So let’s suppose you think it wise to buy a watchdog so that when your little girl plays in the front yard the dog can protect and defend her from any intruders who may wish to do her harm.After a little time goes by the puppy you bought becomes a full grown animal.
His muscles become fully developed, his teeth are big and sharp, and now he towers over your little girl. You are worried that he is becoming too aggressive and one day you look out the door and witness your worst fear – you see the dog’s jaws are on her neck and blood is on her clothes.As you burst out the front door, she has gotten free and is cowering in the corner of the fence by the tree.

This week Americans will enjoy Independence Day with family cookouts and fireworks. Flags will be displayed in abundance. Sadly, however, what should be a celebration of the courage of those who risked so much to oppose tyranny will instead be turned into a celebration of government, not liberty.
The mainstream media and opportunistic politicians have turned Independence Day into the opposite of what was intended.The idea of opposing — by force if necessary — a tyrannical government has been turned into a celebration of tyrannical government itself!
The evidence is all around us.How would the signers of the Declaration of Independence have viewed, for example, the Obama Administration’s “drone memo,” finally released last week, which claims to justify the president’s killing American citizens without charge, judge, jury, or oversight?
