…In a speech at his alma mater—the University of Texas— on February 1, ahead of a five-nation Latin American tour, U.S. Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson declared that many people in Latin America “still live under the oppression of tyranny.” He then singled out the regime in Venezuela:

Tillerson took some questions after his speech. A senior studying government asked a question regarding Venezuela:

So a commonly proposed solution to a lot of the problems in the country is the removal of President Maduro from power. In your opinion, is this removal necessary, and what could the U.S.’s role be in the possible regime change, especially considering the turmoil that could surmount from such a change?

Here is Tillerson’s response:

Flynn Case Highlights Deep Political Corruption of US Security Services

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 11, 2017

That thing which progressives consider an ever evolving document, the Constitution, has stopped evolving. It is dead.

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/12/07/flynn-case-highlights-deep-political-corruption-us-security-services.html

…The argument used to justify the possible Flynn entrapment by the FBI, i.e. that there was unauthorized contact with a foreign official, is in itself curious as such contact is not in itself illegal. And it also opens the door to the Bureau’s investigating other individuals who have committed no crime but who find that they cannot recall details of phone calls they were parties to that were being recorded by the government. That can easily be construed as “lying” or “perjury” with consequences that include possible prison time.

Outside Independence Hall when
the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended,
Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin,
“Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”
With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded,
“A republic, if you can keep it.”

Apple vs FBI, Goliath vs Leviathan

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 27, 2016

If anyone thinking the government will stop at hacking one Apple phone just isn’t thinking. There are two reasons the FBI will not back off on this issue.

1. They want to set a precedent and get an ‘open sesame’ for any and all encrypted devices. Anyone saying different is either a fool or a liar.

2. The FBI do not want to made to look the fool in the off-chance Apple should win. Read the rest of this entry »

Separating the Mundane’s From Their Guns-Nice Try- The Real Issues Are Hidden

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 20, 2013

An Erie Times letter writer’s attempt to separate the Mundane’s from their guns, via Article 1 of the Constitution is a nice try but I believe flawed.

We must start with the idea that many founder’s did not want a standing army.  They feared it would be used against the citizenry.  They may have had some foresight.  The government’s (armed) drone surveillance, DHS ammunition stockpiling and FEMA camp construction end game has yet to be played out.  The founders also leaned toward a weak central government per the (preferred by some) Articles of Confederation.  The vision was no standing armies, just civilians available when called upon to repel foreign invasion, put down domestic insurrection and rogue governmental tyranny. The nation’s defense against enemies without and within was the various state militias. Read the rest of this entry »

(Bradley Manning) Americans don’t care. It is not them. They are too stupid to understand that once law is gone, they can be next.

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 5, 2012

The quote is from this Paul Craig Roberts article.  It explains why Bradley Manning is a hero, because he dared to do what he is sworn to do.

Uphold the Constitution.  Read the rest of this entry »

Totalitarians-Comrade Santorum and “Human Pustule” Gringrich

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 20, 2012

Here are some comments on recent campaign excretions from my (former) Senator Santorum and the Newt.  The candidates offer quite a strange interpretation of what the Bible expects of us and what the Constitution expects of those who govern.
