If you were thinking that the only things we have to be concerned about include wars, famines and economic crashes, think again. Recent scientific discoveries are indicating that this next solar flare cycle could be powerful enough to disrupt our planet’s entire electric grid. In this report I document a number of changes taking place with the Earth’s magnetic field, the Sun and our solar system while explaining some of the concerns that today’s leading scientists have voiced. I also examine how humankind may be affected energetically. Continue reading →
Today’s article by Alex Ansary was originally published at Outside the Box in December of 2005. Given the recent fad by the constitutionalist patriot movement of “humping the Trump,” I figured it would be good to remind them all what an actual citizen-journalist wrote back when George W. Bush was in the White House. This republication, and concomitant spoken discourse narrated by yours truly, is done with the permission of the original author.
Why do countless American people go along with the War on Iraq? Why do so many people call for a police state control grid? A major component to a full understanding of why this kind of governmental and corporate corruption is to discover the modern science of mind control and social engineering. It’s baffling to merely glance at the stacks of documentation that this world government isn’t being constructed for the greater good of humanity. Although there are a growing number of people waking up the reality of our growing transparent soft cage, there seems to be just enough citizens who are choosing to remain asleep. Worse yet, there are even those who were at least partially awake at one time but found it necessary to return to the slumber of dreamland. Continue reading →
Today’s documentation is an anthology composed of all the relevant federal laws over a 43-year period related to Old Glory. They are sourced & republished here from the Title 4 – United States Flag Code (which is positive law) and two United States Supreme Court decisions (which is case law); for those of you who may be wondering, there is no constitutional clause whatsoever regarding flags of any kind. Some amendments and other assorted legal footnotes have been removed from this republication copy for ease of reading, yet hyperlinks are given for purposes of citation and followup.
This title has been made positive law by section 1 of act July 30, 1947, ch. 389, 61 Stat. 641, which provided in part that: “title 4 of the United States Code, entitled ‘Flag and seal, Seat of Government, and the States’, is codified and enacted into positive law and may be cited as ‘4 U. S. C., §—
§1. Flag; stripes and stars on
The flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; and the union of the flag shall be forty-eight stars, white in a blue field.
The Census Clause “reflects several important constitutional determinations: that comparative state political power in the House would reflect comparative wealth; that comparative power would shift every 10 years to reflect population changes; that federal tax authority would rest upon the same base; and that Congress, not the states, would determine the manner of conducting the census.” These determinations “all suggest a strong constitutional interest in accuracy.” The language employed – “actual enumeration” – requires an actual count, but gives Congress wide discretion in determining the methodology of that count. The word “enumeration” refers to a counting process without describing the count’s methodological details. The word “actual” merely refers to the enumeration to be used for apportioning the Third Congress, and thereby distinguishes “a deliberately taken count” from the conjectural approach that had been used for the First Congress.

“I will never trust certain people to vet certain people ever from this point on. It is irresponsible to assume other people will just do the vetting for us and vet certain members, and make sure that they are who they say they are; well, that wasn’t done. No group or community can be fully safe if people are so naïve that they don’t even bother to question, or look up, the supposed people that are coming to the rescue.”
“Taxes shall be levied and collected by general laws and for public purposes only…[t]he Legislature shall have no power to release the inhabitants of, or property in, any county, city or town from the payment of taxes levied for State or county purposes, unless in case of great public calamity in any such county, city or town, when such release may be made by a vote of two-thirds of each House of the Legislature.”
“Circumstances short of probable cause for arrest may justify temporary detention for purposes of investigations. To justify an investigative stop, an officer must have specific articulable facts which, in light of his experience and personal knowledge, together with other inferences from those facts, would warrant the intrusion on the person stopped for further investigation. Thus, even in the absence of bad faith, detention based ‘on a mere hunch’ is illegal. There must be a reasonable suspicion by the officer that some activity out of the ordinary is occurring or had occurred, some suggestion to connect the detained person with the unusual activity, and some indication that the activity is related to crime. Where the events are as consistent with innocent activity as with criminal activity, a detention based on those events in unlawful.” [emphasis added]
Driver licensure, vehicle registration, emissions inspections, and liability certification is just so much paperwork, but the reason why Americans tolerate them at all is because they are fearful of what might happen if they were caught without any of them while they are exercising their right to travel. According to the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics in 2011, an estimated 42% of all citizen-police interactions were within the context of a traffic stop (these stopped drivers comprised 12% of the nation’s 212 million drivers, or about 25 million drivers), and half of those traffic stops resulted in a ticket; also that same year, 3% of these traffic stops involved the search of the driver, the vehicle, or both (stopped drivers reported speeding as the most common reason they were pulled over). Between red tape and moving violations, the only way any of that becomes truly scary is when you find yourself on a roadside being menaced by a uniformed man with a gun on his hip. Continue reading →
“Insurance policies are written contracts, and, as with other contracts, we interpret and enforce them according to settled rules of construction. Most importantly, we must give the policy’s words their plain meaning, without inserting additional provisions into the contract.”
– National Union Fire Insurance Co. v. Beatrice Crocker, No. 06-0868 (2008)
The electoral college was one of the compromises by which the delegates were able to agree on the document finally produced. “This subject,” said James Wilson, referring to the issue of the manner in which the President was to be selected, “has greatly divided the House, and will also divide people out of doors. It is in truth the most difficult of all on which we have had to decide.” Adoption of the electoral college plan came late in the Convention, which had previously adopted on four occasions provisions for election of the executive by the Congress and had twice defeated proposals for election by the people directly. Itself the product of compromise, electoral college probably did not work as any member of the Convention have foreseen, because the development of political parties and nomination of presidential candidates through them and designation of electors by the parties soon reduced the concept of the elector as an independent force to the vanishing point in practice in theory. But the college remains despite numerous efforts to adopt another method, a relic perhaps but still a significant one. Clause 3 has, of course, been superceded by the Twelfth Amendment.

“The streets of the cities of this country belong to the public. Primarily, every member of the public has the natural right to the free use of such streets in the normal pursuit of his private or personal business or pleasures. In his errands of pleasure, he may use these highways to his heart’s content…[t]hese rights, being inherent to him as an American citizen, cannot be taken away from him, or unreasonably restricted or regulated. Subject to this freedom of personal conduct inherent in the individual, however, the control of the streets and the cities rests in the Legislature, acting as trustee for the public. The right of the public at large to the free use of the streets is paramount to the natural right of the individual, and the Legislature, in its capacity as trustee, has the power to reasonably regulate this use, to the end that the public shall enjoy the maximum benefits thereof. If in its free use the right of the individual citizen conflicts with the paramount rights of the public at large, then the rights of the one must yield to those of the many.”
Years ago, I was issued a ticket for allegedly violating Texas Transportation Code § 548.602(a) on the grounds of NO VALID INSPECTION CERTIFICATE [FAILURE TO DISPLAY/EXPIRED INSPECTION CERTIFICATE]. Lower on down the ticket, it said the following:
Annually traffic law violations are recorded as a factor in about 85% of the rural traffic accidents in Texas. Approximately 60% of the traffic deaths in Texas occur on rural highways. The enforcement actions taken against you and any subsequent court actions are intended to secure compliance with the traffic laws by you and all other users of the highways. Failure to comply with your written promise to appear in court as made on this citation will constitute a separate offense with which you may be charged and result in warrants being issued for your arrest. The issuance of arrest warrants will make you subject to entry into the wanted persons files of this Department. Failure to appear in court or failure to satisfy a judgement ordering the payment of a fine and cost in the manner ordered by the court may result in the denial or renewal of your driver’s license.
Those first two sentences are wonderfully rich, given that the issuing officer initiated the traffic stop within the Greater Austin metro area. In truth, this “important message” is anything but, since it appears to be a standard boilerplate that had nothing at all to do with the charge I was being prosecuted under. Continue reading →
