Dr. Edwin Vieira, author of The Sword and Sovereignty, was on the Power Hour with Joyce Riley on July 28, 2014, and provided an excellent and concise explanation of “a well-regulated Militia,” with reference to the United States and its Constitution.

- The Department of Homeland Security is unconstitutional
- A “well-regulated Militia” means statutory authorization and regulation by the several States, and doesn’t include privately-run militias
- The definition of Militia is best expressed by the Constitution of Virginia, which is the whole body of the people
- Exemptions could be given to most for completing a first-aid course, for example
- Women originally not part of the Militia because they were not legally emancipated, but would now be considered part of the Militia
- Age restrictions in place (originally up to 44 years old) in the 1700s before modern medicine could alleviate these conditions, and modern society allows individuals to serve in other capacities, like office work
- The National Guard isn’t a Militia, with the proof being that there is no notice given to all citizens to participate in it
- The Militia is intended to “execute the laws of the Union,” meaning that there is to be no federal agencies that perform a police or para-military function outside of the Militia
- Police abuses could be kept in check by the Militia, which is composed of the body of the people
- Constitutional Militias could be brought in any time — the only thing stopping that is the political class and a lack of citizen demand for them from State officials

On the March 1, 2014 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I covered the following issues:

Full coverage of my article, “I’m blowing the whistle on World Bank whistleblower Karen Hudes“, with regard to her Jesuit and alien misdirection about the World Bank, international finance and gold, and how you and I were misled about Barack Obama’s eligibility for President.

English: Antonin Scalia, Associate Justice of ...

From the November 27, 2012 interview with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Charlie Rose:

  • 9m – Says he supports a reasonable, not a strict interpretation of the Constitution. This is, of course, how he justifies so called “reasonable” limitations on the enumerated rights in the Bill of Rights, such as “reasonable” gun control restrictions.
  • 17m – Says back in the good old days, judges used to lie when changing the meaning of the Constitution, but now they make it mean whatever they say it means
  • 18m – Says he has no more power to interpret the constitution than the President or the legislative branch
  • 19m – His Lincoln hypocrisy on habeas corpus, in criticizing it, yet ruling in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld (2006) that habeas corpus didn’t apply to a non-U.S. citizen detained at Guantanimo Bay, in the absence of a constitutional suspension by Congress, despite the U.S. Constitution restricting the power of the federal government, regardless of the citizenship or location of the detainee.
  • 35m – He expressed his surprise about Chief Justice John Roberts’ tax clause ruling in support for Obamacare
  • 37m – Claimed that the majority opinion in Bush v. Gore was based upon the Florida courts allegedly violating the Constitution, yet mentioned about the U.S. Supreme Court decision ending the vote counting so the U.S. wouldn’t be a laughing stock
  • 41m – Says judicial activism started under the Warren court
  • 46m – Says he had to do all of the originalist interpretation when he got on the court, since no one else was doing that
  • 49m – Charlie Rose said he promised Scalia he wouldn’t ask him anything he didn’t already know the answer to, showing how such interviews are tightly scripted and controlled

Here are some interesting statistics concerning how social media will affect the November 6, 2012 United States presidential election.

Social media can be used to provide a counterbalance to the two-party system lock on elections in the United States, whether it be the promotion of a third party candidate or a vote for “None of the above,” as some jurisdictions effectively allow by declining your ballot.

I have achieved successful outreach through various social media for my blog and radio program, and I have found that prominent personalities are more apt to respond through sites like Twitter and Facebook where the exchanges can be publicly seen, than through private email.

Consider, additionally, smaller social media sites, which are less apt to be controlled with content filters and more strict account restrictions, in the case that you have an important message to get out that may not be popular for most readers.

A picture says a thousand words, and in this case, these pictures of America’s three most recent presidents say it all.

DAVOS/SWITZERLAND, 29JAN11 - Olafur Ragnar Gri...Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, president of Iceland since 1996, is an antidote to anti-government pessimism porn peddlers in the alternative media, like the late Murray Rothbard, who claimed that government is nothing but a “gang of thieves writ large.”

Appearing on the July 8, 2012 episode of CBC’s, The Sunday Edition, President Grimsson explained how the majority of the Icelandic government supported caving into the demands of Britain and the international banking establishment, while he and the majority of the Icelandic people ultimately prevailed in opposing them through referenda.

So much, then, for the pessimism porn that there’s no good politician, and that they are all in it for themselves.

English: This image is of economist Walter Blo...

I helped to arrange two interviews for Walter Block on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith, on June 4, 2012, at 6 PM at gcnlive.com and midnight Eastern at radioliberty.com, and on many of his 70+ weekly radio affiliates.

Dr. Block will be talking about his new book, Ron Paul for President in 2012: Yes to Ron Paul and Liberty.

In a twist of irony, on August 20, 2011, I wrote the article, Stefan Molyneux does hate the state and Walter Block of the Mises Institute, doesn’t, wherein I took Dr. Block to task for his criticism of Stefan Molyneux.
