Anti Agenda 21 Platform

FA Note:  The fol­low­ing Alame­da Coun­ty Repub­li­can Par­ty Plat­form ban­ning Agen­da 21 was draft­ed by Free­dom Advo­cates and is intend­ed for use by Demo­c­rat and Repub­li­can Cen­tral Com­mit­tees around the coun­try. Is your county’s polit­i­cal activism com­mit­ted to Amer­i­ca or to polit­i­cal glob­al­ism? Democ­rats and Repub­li­cans most like­ly will answer that ques­tion sim­i­lar­ly! Both par­ties […]

Senator Reads the TPP and Exposes Its Contents; Other Elected Officials Should Do the Same

Sen­a­tor Jeff Ses­sions (R-AL) is one of the few mem­bers of Con­gress who has tak­en the time to jump through the hoops and read the Trans-Pacif­ic Part­ner­ship (TPP). But, he has gone a step far­ther than oth­er mem­bers — he told mem­bers of Con­gress what he read. He told the truth about what the TPP […]

Senate Reverses Course and Advances TPP Fast Track Bill

The U.S. Sen­ate advanced the Fast Track bill today May 14) in a rushed vote fol­low­ing a slew of con­ces­sions made to swing Democ­rats who had vot­ed to block it ear­li­er this week. The set­back on Tues­day could have forced pro­po­nents of the Trans-Pacif­ic Part­ner­ship (TPP), the Transat­lantic Trade and Invest­ment Part­ner­ship (TTIP), and oth­er secre­tive, […]

The Legislature and The Sob Sister Circus

Yes­ter­day (May 19) was an expe­ri­ence.  It was nev­er on my buck­et list to tes­ti­fy to a state leg­is­la­ture on leg­is­la­tion but I did it.  And I learned a lot. HB 1 was the replace­ment bill for S.1067 – the bill that inte­grates the Hague Con­ven­tion on Inter­na­tion­al Recov­ery of Child Sup­port etc. into state […]

The Empty Chair

Occa­sion­al­ly when one writes on polit­i­cal issues, it’s easy to get car­ried away.  When I wrote The Leg­is­la­ture and The Sob Sis­ter Cir­cus, I spoke ill of Scott Keim, Deputy Attor­ney Gen­er­al of the State of Ida­ho.  I said he “got his law degree out of a box from the Crack­er­jack Uni­ver­si­ty”.   When I wrote […]

U.S. backs down on trade dispute

FA Note: This arti­cle exem­pli­fies the use of inter­na­tion­al law and trade agree­ments to nul­li­fy U.S. sov­er­eign­ty and con­sumer pro­tec­tions. Fac­ing threat­ened retal­i­a­tion from Cana­da over “coun­try of ori­gin” meat labelling ruled unlaw­ful by the World Trade Orga­ni­za­tion, the U.S. Con­gress moved quick­ly on Wednes­day to start to repeal the require­ment. “In light of the World Trade […]

Collectivists Hate Individuality, Tribalism And ‘Fast And Furious 7′?

FA Note: Excel­lent com­men­tary on the focused effort by much of soci­ety to destroy indi­vid­ual rights Some­times in the lib­er­ty move­ment — with dis­cus­sions of poten­tial col­lapse, war, rev­o­lu­tion, social desta­bi­liza­tion, etc. — it is easy to get so caught up in the periph­er­al con­flict between the elites and the cit­i­zen­ry that we for­get what […]

Why NSA surveillance is worse than you’ve ever imagined

Last sum­mer, after months of encrypt­ed emails, I spent three days in Moscow hang­ing out with Edward Snow­den for a Wired cov­er sto­ry. Over pep­per­oni piz­za, he told me that what final­ly drove him to leave his coun­try and become a whistle­blow­er was his con­vic­tion that the Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Agency was con­duct­ing ille­gal sur­veil­lance on […]
