The War on Assange is a War on Truth

by Ron Paul It is dangerous to reveal the truth about the illegal and immoral things our government does with our money and in our name, and the war on journalists who dare reveal such truths is very much a bipartisan affair. Just ask Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who was relentlessly pursued first by the Obama Administration and now by the Trump Administration for the “crime” of reporting on the crimes perpetrated by the United States government. Assange is now literally fighting for his life, as he tries to avoid being extradited to the United States where he faces 175 years in prison for violating the “Espionage Act.” While it makes no sense to be prosecuted as a traitor to a country of which you are not a citizen, the idea that journalists who do their job and expose crimina...

President Trump Says His Next SCOTUS Pick Will Be A Woman!

by the DC Patriot On Saturday night while on the campaign trail, President Donald J. Trump said that he will have a new Supreme Court Justice for the United States Senate to vote on. That pick will in fact be a woman. “I will be putting forth a nominee next week. It will be a woman,” he said during a rally on Saturday night in North Carolina. “I could see most likely it would be a woman,” he told reporters earlier the day. “I would say that a woman would be in first place.” He also said the process will be started “extremely soon” and will move very quickly. When asked about Barbara Lagoa, the U.S. circuit judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, the president said Lagoa is an “extraordinary person” and is highly respected in Miam...

Should Social Security Be Expanded?

by Laurence M. Vance Time is running out for Rep. John Larson (D-Conn.), the chairman of the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security. Social Security is simply an intergenerational wealth-redistribution scheme that has been an entitlement program for the elderly from the very beginning. [Click to Tweet] The Constitution, in Article I, Section 4, mandates that Congress assemble “at least once in every Year.” Each Congress is numbered and lasts two years, with two legislative sessions. The current Congress is the 116th to assemble since the first in 1789. Although congressional elections are held in November of even-numbered years, a new Congress does not begin until noon on January 3 of the following odd-numbered year. The first session convenes on or soon after that da...

Censorship and Secrecy Are Deadly to All Freedom and Liberty

by Gary D. Barnett As all that know me fully understand, I have absolutely no use for politicians, the political class, or government, but on occasion, although rarely in history and non-existent today, one can find prescience and truth being spoken publicly in the political arena. John F. Kennedy had several strong speeches, but few more important in my opinion than his speech concerning secrecy and censorship at the national level. The video below is a condensed version that is powerful, but if any want to hear the entire speech, it can be accessed here. Considering the extreme risk to this country and the world today due to secrecy, censorship, false flags, and conspiracy, I hope you will listen to this speech. https://youtu.be/xhZk8ronces Posted with permission f...

Military Generals Are Just Another Group of Self-Interested Technocrats

by Ryan McMaken The United States has always had a love affair with certain generals. George Washington, of course, was immensely popular, and thirteen US presidents were generals before they were president. But prior to the Second World War, generals as a group were not revered or treated with any particular veneration or respect. In fact, in the nineteenth century, full-time US military officers were often treated with suspicion and contempt. While state militia officers were regarded as indispensable night watchmen who preserved order, the full-time government employees who served in the federal military were often derided as lazy and otherwise unemployable. But now those days are long gone. In recent decades, active generals and retired generals have grown into...

How to Challenge Your Governor

by Matthew Bellis One of the stricter lockdown states in the country has been Pennsylvania. Mask orders, capacity limits, forced business closures, corrupt waiver scheme, shifting safety standards, vague color charts, never-ending emergency declarations, on and on it goes. For many months the people have rallied under ReOpen PA and the Adams County Patriots groups. Many times when there would be a rally or protest, we would see movement one way or another from the Governor. We had seen legislation passed, then disputed, declarations made and tabled, propositions held and then let go of. Frankly, the liberty loving people of Pennsylvania has had enough, and on September 12th, we gather to express as much. At the Assemble for Freedom 2.0 at the Harrisburg Capitol, thousands gathered t...
Status Report: Nullify Federal Marijuana Prohibition

Status Report: Nullify Federal Marijuana Prohibition

by Mike Maharrey Marijuana is the granddaddy of the modern nullification movement. On no other issue do we find state-by-state resistance to federal power so advanced, well-funded, supported and successful.  Beginning in California with the legalization of cannabis for medical use in 1996, states have advanced the issue every year. This has happened in spite of a 2005 Supreme Court opinion supporting federal prohibition, at least 12 years of relentless year-to-year increase in spending and enforcement efforts by the federal government through three presidential administrations and ongoing, complete prohibition at the federal level. Thirty-three states and Washington D.C. have legalized marijuana for medical use, and 24 states along with Washington D.C. have de...

Unmasked

by Gregory Morin “We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.”New England Journal of Medicine, 2020; 382:363 These days everyone imagines himself or herself to be a scientist. Scolds, who labor under the delusion that reading the New York Times is ...

Iconic Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Passes Away at 87

by The DC Patriot Sad news coming from The United States Supreme Court late Friday evening as the iconic Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has passed away at the age of 87. Ginsburg was appointed in 1993 by President Bill Clinton and in recent years served as the most senior member of the court’s liberal wing consistently delivering progressive votes on the most divisive social issues of the day, including abortion rights, same-sex marriage, voting rights, immigration, health care and affirmative action. The following statement is from the Supreme Court of the United States. All of us at The DC Patriot send out our heartfelt condolences, prayers, and thoughts to her family in this difficult time.

The FBI’s Forgotten Crimes against Richard Jewell

by James Bovard A new movie about Richard Jewell is reminding Americans of one of the forgotten travesties of the 1990s. When he died in 2007 at age 44, his New York Times obituary was headlined, “Richard Jewell, Hero of Atlanta Attack, Dies.” But his heroism was recognized only after the FBI and the media sought to destroy him. Congress has dismally failed to perform its duty in keeping an eye and a leash on federal agencies armed with massive firepower and even more deadly legal authority. [Click to Tweet] On July 27, 1996, a pipe bomb went off at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, where the world’s athletes and media were gathered for the Olympic games. The FBI decided that 33-year-old security guard Richard Jewell, who had found the bomb and helped clear the area and minimize f...
