My book JUSTICE OR REVOLUTION was published in 1979. I revised it recently and republished it through Amazon with a new title: EMBRACE FREEDOM, Restore the Constitution. The Table of Contents reads: Justice, Freedom, Tyranny, Property Rights, Government, Revolution, Constitution, Law, Republic, Democracy, Politicians. Here are some excerpts from it:
EMBRACE FREEDOM argues that a loose construction of the Constitution has allowed the government to encroach on our liberties. We need to return to the principles of the Constitution, which will leave the federal government a smaller but healthier fraction of its current size. Americans are not powerless. Once they summon the courage to act, they can secure freedom NOW and for all future generations. EMBRACE FREEDOM arms the reader with freedom’s and liberty’s principles from the greatest minds throughout history. We live in dangerous times because the majority have remained silent too long allowing our elected representatives to threaten our lives, liberty, property, and pursuit of happiness. The solution is to neutralize the threat facing us from our out of control government by embracing freedom and restoring the Constitution. Let’s try FREEDOM for a change!

The city of Pahrump NV is under seige by the powers that be to take away from the landowners their water. The water is attached to the land–buy the land and the water underneath comes with it. However, because there isn’t enough water to expand the 38,000 population to the extent developers and contractors would like, they’ve created a scheme using paper water rights. There is a market for these rights and their goal is to take the private well owners water, which is 2 acre feet/yr and force it down to .5 acre feet.
I have been writing letters-to-the-editor educating the people. I am including some of them here. I hope word gets out about the corruption run rampant in Nevada, especially the theft of our water.
Another scheme the Board of County Commissioners has approved is to put Rapid Infiltration Basin systems on land that is a flood plain, and is our sole source aquifer. This is outlawed in California, Utah and Arizona. But Nevada has very lax water laws. It is outrageous how the BoCC has ignored the rights of the people. The risk of these RIBs contaminaing the aquifer is HIGH, according to the Pahrump Regional Planning Commission. You be the judge and let the country know about the corruption in Pahrump NV.
The French Revolution was triggered by peasants that had nothing to lose. They were taxed to death by Louis XIV. They revolted by guillotining the aristocracy. When people are pushed into a corner, with no way out, they fight. Some have already threatened to fight if meters are placed on their wells.
The water Plan under discussion is such a plan. It tramples the rights of innocent people who elected the BoCC to protect their rights. There are rights attached to the land we own. It is inconceivable that we have to fight for our God-given, inalienable rights. Because that means they aren’t rights, but privileges given to us by our governing bodies. But now we are fighting for our rights.
The Plan is flawed in many ways, too numerous to list here. To adopt any part of it is morally wrong. Nowadays, it seems that when businesses cannot make it on their own, when they cannot get what they want from the free market, they turn to politicians to get it for them. This is what’s happening here. We all know who they are, and they are using the BoCC to wangle them access to water that they cannot get legally. These special interest groups ought to be ashamed of themselves for hiding behind the BoCC and this water Plan to steal the water from innocent domestic well owners. And they are not even offering to buy the water, which would be a legitimate business deal. No, they are working very hard to steal the water that they have no right to. The BoCC should be ashamed of itself for being any part of this nefarious scheme. (12-15-2015)
This is in reference to the Pahrump Regional Planning Commission meeting where it was voted 4-2 to give Utilities, Inc. a Conditional Use Permit for construction and operation of two Rapid Infiltration Basins. We witnessed the most flagrant disregard for facts. This irresponsible act was taken even though the Planning Commission’s staff reported on page 5, #2, under “Water Quality, that the proposed project could potentially cause or contribute to the degradation of groundwater quality and the proposed land use is considered a Contaminant Source. Under Municipal Waste Source, the Wastewater Treatment Plant risk for contaminants is High in all three contaminant categories: B, C and D.
In a well worded mixed message the Findings on page 2, #3: state “the conditional use will not be hazardous…” #6: “the conditional use…will not be detrimental to the economic welfare of the community.” But according to their own report, the risk is HIGH that it will be detrimental to the community. This is outrageous!
And who did Utilities Inc. call for an expert opinion? Their own worker who assured us he was doing a good job and we could count on him.
The Utah Department of Environmental Protection prohibits RIBs over sole source drinking water grade aquifers such as Pahrump’s aquifer. It prohibits RIBs in Zones I and II of Source Water Protection Areas like Pahrump’s.
Furthermore, it states that site characteristics not favorable for a proposed RIB system are ones located above a sole-source aquifer and located in a flood plain.
In San Diego County they use reverse osmosis to clean the water before it is recharged. Arizona has taken severe steps to protect its water since it already destroyed one aquifer. Because Nevada has the most lax water laws, we must look to other states for actual water standards. We don’t trust the state nor the EPA to protect our water. The PRC may be within the law, but it is out of touch with reality. They are also using inaccurate misleading measurements where the RIBs will be installed.
650,000 gal/day of unpotable water will be dumped into our potable aquifer. Once contaminated, it stays contaminated. How could their “staff” recommend this action based on their own report? How can any thinking person take the HIGH risk of ruining our only water source?
We are ashamed of the Planning Commission. It is putting the entire Pahrump Valley at risk, and for what? So Utilities, Inc. can make money? Where is their duty to protect our aquifer? Nevada’s lax water standards is no excuse. The state of Nevada is not a credible authority.
We are DEMANDING the BoCC stop this dangerous business right now! Once this precious aquifer is contaminated, there is no going back. All domestic wells will be shut down. The County will then have to take control of our water, make it potable if possible, and send us the bill. Sounds like a conspiracy to us.
If we don’t see the BoCC acting to stop this threat, then we believe our only recourse is to sue the County, the individual commissioners and the planning commissioners who are disregarding their sworn duty to protect the water and are acting without honesty and integrity.
We expect a formal appeal to the BoCC to be filed shortly. And if they don’t act soon, we believe a lawsuit will force them to act to protect our only water supply. (1-18-2016)
On Monday 1-25-2016 there is another meeting. This one with the Water Board who has some of the same people on the Planning Commission and on the County Commissioners. There is a lot conflicts of interest and catering to special interest groups. It will be interesting to see if common sense and justice prevail. I’ll keep you posted.
To lie is evil, because the intent of the liar is to deceive.
“I am not a crook,” claimed Richard M. Nixon on 11/17/1973, as he denied any involvement in the Watergate scandal. He resigned the presidency rather than face impeachment.
“I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” lied Bill Clinton under oath. Impeachment proceedings followed.
There “isn’t a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS,” claims President Barack Obama.
“Some are warning that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices,” warned President Obama in a commencement address at Ohio University in May 2013.
The following quotes come from www.brainyquote.com:
“The good thing about being president, I can do whatever I want.”
“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.”
“I think same sex couples should be able to get married.”
“I opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. It should be repealed and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor. I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from marrying.”
“As president, I’m committed to making Washington work better and rebuilding the trust of the people who sent us here.”
“I will continue to believe that Israel’s security is paramount.”
“Michelle and I don’t want anyone telling us who our family’s doctor should be – and no one should decide that for you either. Under our proposals, if you like your doctor, you keep your doctor. If you like your current insurance, you keep that insurance. Period. End of story.”
“The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans. Many other Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim-majority country – I know, because I am one of them.”
“I’m a Christian by choice.”
President Obama lies easily; he is a man without principles. He lacks honesty and integrity. He is the ultimate politician, who stands for nothing and gladly throws away our freedom while shredding the Constitution. It’s time to impeach him!
House Speaker John Boehner is suing President Obama for “not faithfully executing the laws” and “subverting laws approved by Congress,” such as halting deportation of immigrants, expanding gay rights, and more. The President has used his Executive powers 23 times to destroy our Second Amendment. He is using Obamacare to destroy our health care system. He is using the IRS to destroy the Fourth Amendment, to obliterate the Tea Party and to enforce Obamacare. He is pushing Homosexual “rights” to obliterate our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion. He is threatening to use executive power if Congress doesn’t support his unconstitutional ideas. This is tyranny!
Fox News showed that the Administration was blindsided 9 times: in Iraq and Ukraine, VA, IRS, Fast and Furious scandals, and four more. Perhaps the Administration didn’t notice these problems because it’s so focused on destroying America.
House Speaker Boehner is pussy-footing around the real issue. The arrogance of the Obama Administration smacks of Germany, 1936. Pres. Obama and his henchman, Senator Reid, the pit-bull of the Senate with the vicious mouth, have long over-stepped their Constitutional boundaries. The time for suing is passed. Dictators only understand superior force. IT IS TIME TO IMPEACH!
According to Reid v. Covert, 354 U.S. 1 (1957), in a landmark case, the United States Supreme Court ruled “The Constitution supersedes international treaties ratified by the United States Senate.” This reinforces that the Bill of Rights is to protect the people from government, making parts of the Patriot Act, the NSA, and the IRS unconstitutional. It will also make the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, if passed by the Senate, null and void to the extent that it enfringes on national sovereignty and the Second Amendment.
It is our right and our duty to support the Constitution at every opportunity and to oppose tyranny in all its forms.
We can learn from Benjamin Franklin how to keep integrity in newspapers. Franklin excluded all libelling and personal abuse. He said, “Whenever I was solicited to insert any thing of that kind, and the Writers pleaded as they generally did, the Liberty of the Press, and that a Newspaper was like a Stage Coach in which any one who would pay had a Right to a Place, my Answer was, that I would print the Piece separately if desired, and the Author might have as many Copies as he pleased to distribute himself, but that I would not take upon me to spread his Detraction, and that having contracted with my Subscribers to furnish them with what might be either useful or entertaining, I could not fill their Papers with private Altercation in which they had no Concern without doing them manifest Injustice.”
(“The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin”, 1771, The Easton Press, 1976, p. 124)
Franklin said many other newspapers printed malice of individuals by false accusations, augmenting animosity leading to pernicious consequences. He cautioned young printers against these practices and encouraged them “not to pollute their Presses and disgrace their Profession by such infamous Practices, but refuse steadily.
Newspapers should print only the truth, the facts and that which is edifying and wholesome.
Eric Cantor would rather play dumb than admit he lost his job because he was colluding with the enemy. He was working with the President to infringe on Second Amendment rights, according to the National Association for Gun Rights, June 11, 2014.
“Eric Cantor refused to answer his National Association for Gun Rights candidate survey every single time he was asked. Contrast that with Dave Brat who enthusiastically filled out his survey 100% in favor of your right to keep and bear arms.
Instead of answering important questions and standing by your Second Amendment rights, Eric Cantor used his position as Majority Leader to betray them when it counted. In early 2013, the anti-gunners and their allies in the media started screaming for new Federal gun control. Eric Cantor was one of the first Republicans to beat the war drums for gun control alongside radical anti-gun Democrats.
Cantor was prepared to support anti-gun legislation just like he did as Delegate in the Virginia General Assembly when he voted for the draconian one-gun-a-month gun rationing scheme and to ban self-defense shotguns back in 1993. Sure enough, just two weeks ago, Cantor did it again. Eric Cantor voted to spend $20 million more on Obama’s anti-gun agenda.”
The voters of Virginia have spoken. Let’s hope all liberty-loving Americans speak loud and clear during the Primaries and especially in November.
President Obama doesn’t feel comfortable discussing his ideas and plans with the Media, especially the Press, or Congress, and that includes both the Senate and the House, both Democrats and Republicans. He does feel comfortable speaking in front of crowds, especially college students, who are more awed by the Presidency than the President. In other words, President Obama cannot handle having his ideas/plans challenged. He shrinks from confrontation and defending his position. He prefers using “I” instead of “we”. He prefers to issue orders to his faithful minions rather than share his plans with the rest of us.
This “go it along” or “devil may care” attitude keeps biting him in popularity. He has the lowest rating of his presidency and will bring his fellow democrats down in the coming election. But he cannot do anything about his personality. His ideas/plans for the most part are indefensible and poorly constructed so he’s stuck with his forcing approach and he’s forced to take the consequences. To name a few failures: Obamacare (which he is forcing down the throats of States and individuals at the expense of the insurance market, elevating the IRS to the level of being his personal gestapo, and costing extra billions of dollars), using the IRS to remove Tea Party opposition, pushing Homosexual legislation that is destroying First Amendment rights of religious beliefs, Fast and Furious (which cost innocent lives and backfired) which he is hiding from by protecting Attorney General Holder), and currently the latest furor over returned prisoner Bergdahl.
He has also issued Presidental Orders over gun control that destroy our Second Amendment rights. Against Congress’s wishes he signed the Small Arms Treaty that will further erode American rights and sovereinty. He procrastinated the removal of American troops from Iraq and now that he’s finally putting a number and a time to their return home, he is confronted with uprisings in Iraq that are forcing him to return American forces back to Iraq. Where was his intelligence that left Iraq wide open to attack just as we pulled out our troops? Perhaps if President Obama hadn’t been so keen on supporting spying on Americans and encouraging the NSA, he would have been pushing for foreign intelligence of higher value.
President Obama’s pattern of non-cooperation with Congress and our allies, and his pattern of obfuscation with the American people smacks of either lack of self-confidence or a desire to get things done his way that won’t stand up under scrutiny. His high-handed methods remind me of Germany, 1936, where much evil was done undercover in the name of some good. The only way this type of person can be (and should be) stopped is by Impeachment. If only the House had the ambition to protect the nation as much as the President has the drive to undermine the nation.
I’m looking at some new postage stamps I bought. Underneath the flying flag each stamp says Liberty, Freedom, or Equality. What’s wrong Equality? The word Equality has a political meaning that is the opposite of Liberty and Freedom. The slogan of the French Revolution was Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. It was the focus on equality that beheaded the French King and Queen and hundreds of others, and lead to the rise of the dictator Napoleon Bonaparte.
There is no such thing as liberty, freedom and equality. By definition, liberty and freedom mean inequality of wealth, means, personal choices, traits, and so forth. Liberty and freedom mean one is free to choose his/her path in life. We are all equal under the Constitution, which protects our right to choose our way of life (and be responsible for the consequences of our choices).
We are NOT free to choose for others, to equalize incomes and wealth, to rob Peter to pay Paul, to force one group to support another, or to tax some in order to increase the income of others. This is socialism and communism. This is the true meaning of Equality. It leads to the extinguishing of freedom and liberty.
President Obama likes to use the word Equality often. He says his use of executive orders is to promote equality. He is knowingly misleading Americans into a false security if he thinks razing the middle class to poverty will achieve equality. The poor will still remain poor, and the middle class will join them. The new rich class will be government bureaucrats, czars, politicians, and those who side with the administration of injustice in the name of Equality.
The government is already spending billions of dollars it does not have. Someone will have to pay for it. Guess who? Those with the money,the middle class of course, are already paying higher taxes. All of us are being taxed and made poorer through inflation. Even the young who are just starting out are expected to pay for Obamacare. We are now witnessing the equalizing of the classes. Obamacare isn’t about health care. Its sole purpose is to rob from the haves to give to the have-nots, to support socialism and bigger government, and eventually lead to the nationalization of the health care industry, where everyone looses (except government).
Beware of Equality! It will lead the nation away from freedom into poverty and slavery, paving the way for a dictator.
If a meteor falls from the sky and shatters a million square feet of glass and no one is there to hear it, does it make a noise? In a town of one million people near the Urals in Russia, today’s meteor by breaking the sound barrier, shattered glass and sent 944 people to the local hospital for care. If those people had not existed, the breaking of the sound barrier and/or the shattering of the glass would have definitely made noise. No one needs to be there to witness the noise. So, if a tree falls in the forest (or anywhere else), does it make a noise? The resounding answer is YES!
That concludes our physics lesson for today. Now for our economic lesson. When Congress passes legislation that negatively impacts us, does any one notice it?
