    • Blind Squirrel Finds a Supreme Court Nut - 13 May 2014
      posted in Columns

      While in the vast majority of their constitutionally related writings the Founding Fathers were explicit that the judicial branch of government is effectively the weakest of the three, such is not the case with today’s modern misapplication. Americans currently live under what is, for all intents and purposes, a counter-constitutional judiciocracy led by nine unelected, […]

      Montana’s lone U.S. House member, Steve Daines, is serving his first term as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. And there is absolutely no doubt that Daines will soon declare his candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Max Baucus. When Daines ran for the U.S. House seat in 2012, he […]

    • Will No One Challenge Obama’s Executive Orders? - 14 Feb 2014
      posted in Columns

      President Obama’s state of the union pledge to “act with or without Congress” marks a milestone in presidential usurpation of Congressional authority.  Most modern presidents have used executive orders to change and even create laws without Congressional approval. However President Obama is unusually brazen, in that most presidents do not brag about their plans to […]

      posted in Columns & Politics & Govt & The Constitution & War

      Will the history books record these past couple of weeks as the point when the tide finally turned against our interventionist foreign policy? We began September with the Obama Administration on the verge of launching Tomahawk missiles at Syria. The missiles were needed, the administration claimed, to punish the Syrian government for using poison gas […]
