by The DC Patriot St. Patrick Cathedral in El Paso was vandalized Monday and the 90-year-old statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was destroyed.

I Don’t Side With Your Faction

Written by Mike Maharrey Is the enemy of our enemy our friend? I suppose in the abstract, the depends. But when it comes to battling the biggest, most powerful government in the world, I think the answer is usually yes. To frame it into a more concrete strategy question: should we work with people who generally reject our broader constitutional principles if the partnership can lead to an incremental shift toward constitutional fidelity and liberty? For instance, should we work with people on the left to fight against the growing police state? Or right-wingers to fight gun laws? To me, this is a no-brainer. Of course, we should. In fact, single-issue coalitions have been the bread-and-butter of the Tenth Amendment Center’s work for years. For instance, we have maintai...

Inflation as a Tool of the Radical Left

Written by Thorsten Polleit “Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch its currency….Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer way of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”1 Keynes does not provide a concrete source backing his words but deliberately used the phrase “is said to have declared.” For a good reason. As Frank W. Fetter (1899–1991) pointed out, there is no evidence at hand that Lenin actually said or wrote these words, and anyone quoting Lenin on inflation would be indeed be referring to Keynes’s opinion.2...
Status Report: Taking on Civil Asset Forfeiture

Status Report: Taking on Civil Asset Forfeiture

Written by Mike Maharrey Civil asset forfeiture is nothing more than legalized, institutionalized, government-sanctioned theft. It is the process by which governments confiscate a person’s property, generally after asserting it was involved in criminal activity or that it was the proceeds from a crime. Police often seize property as part of the investigative process. In many states, they don’t even have to make an arrest. For instance, officers might let a person go but seize a car they suspect was used to facilitate a drug deal or cash they thought somebody got from selling drugs. When prosecutors initiate a civil asset forfeiture case, property owners must prove the property wasn’t involved in criminal activity. This flips due process on its head, forcing the owner to esta...

The Fed Is Planning Another Ultra-Long Period of Ultra-Low Rates

Written by Ryan McMaken  Jerome Powell fielded questions from reporters Wednesday, and he made it clear the Fed is a long, long way from abandoning its current dovish policy stance. The Fed plans to keep interest rates near zero, while monetizing US debt,  financing zombie companies, and pouring new dollars into the market through balance sheet purchases. But even that may not be enough, and the Fed is now hinting that even more fiscal support may be necessary. Let's look at some of the details. Interest Rates When asked about interest rates, Powell replied: With regard to interest rates, we now indicate that we expect it will be appropriate to maintain the current zero to 0.25% target range for the federal funds rates until labor market conditions have reached levels ...

WATCH: Fox Panels Comes UNGLUED When Newt Gingrich Calls Out George Soros for Violence in America

Written by Matt Couch If you didn’t know where Fox News stands, now you do. They stand with George Soros. Former Speaker of the House and longtime congressional member and political strategist Newt Gingrich brought up that George Soros was behind the violence in many of these cities. The panel of Harris Faulker and Marie Harf on Fox News Outnumbered come unglued. Gingrich: “They’re Overwhelmingly elected with George Soros money and they’re a major cause of the violence we’re seeing. Because they keep putting the violent criminals into the street.” Faulkner: “I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this.” Gingrich: “He paid for it, why can’t we discuss the fact that millions of dollars..” Harf: “No he didn’t, I agree with Harris that George Soros doesn’t need t...

Constitution Day: Every Day, Not Just a One-Day Federal Mandate

Written by  Michael Boldin Ok, here we go again. It’s September 17th and that means it’s “Constitution Day” in the United States. On this in history the delegates to the Philadelphia Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had drafted. Sadly, though, this so-called national day of observance is a sham. Politicians who never follow the Constitution will tell us about its greatness. Pundits who could care less about Constitutional limits will wax eloquent about how we should all praise the wisdom of the founders. And educators – under an unconstitutional federal mandate – will pretend to teach our children about the Constitution, even though they’re mostly clueless about it. FEDERAL MANDATE This “Constitution Day” thing wasn’t always a date of importance in...

Covid-19 or Covid-9-11?

By: Gary D. Barnett “September 11th was the jumpstart for what is now an accelerated agenda by the ruthless elite: it was a staged war pretext no different from the sinking of the Lusitania, the provoking of Pearl Harbor and the Gulf of Tonkin lie.  In fact if 9/11 wasn’t a planned war pretext, it would be the exception to the rule.  It has been used to launch two unprovoked illegal wars – one against Iraq and one against Afghanistan.  However, 9/11 was a pretext for another war as well: the War against You.  The Patriot Act, Homeland Security, The Military Tribunals Act and other legislations are all completely and entirely designed to destroy your civil liberties and limit your ability to fight back against what is coming.  Currently in the United States...

Trump Connects The Generals And The Military-Industrial Complex

Written by hunter derensis Once again, the whispers of phantoms masquerading as administration officials have attempted to put Donald Trump on the defensive only two months before the fall election. And in typical fashion, the roused president has gone on an immediate rhetorical offensive.Trump has doubled down on his affirmations towards the US military and the American soldier, while simultaneously confronting the class of generals who command them. “I’m not saying the military’s in love with me—the soldiers are,” Trump said at a Labor Day press conference. “The top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy.” This is a dramat...

Employee Fired By Maryland Governor For Supporting Kyle Rittenhouse Hires Kenosha Teen’s Lawyer to #FightBack

Written by Matt Couch As many of you are probably aware, the Maryland governor fired one of his employees for supporting young Kyle Rittenhouse for defending himself against an angry mob that was kicking him in the head, hitting him with skateboards, and pulled a gun on him and were attempting to murder him. As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, Love was the deputy director of the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives, which oversees the state’s ethnic and cultural commissions, community service programs and religious outreach since 2015. “These divisive images and statements are inconsistent with the mission and core values of the Office of Community Initiatives. Earlier today, I relieved this employee of his duties. Kevin Craft, administrative director of the Gov...
