The EPA is preparing to incorporate Agenda 21 sustainability across all its activities, making its already-stifling regulations even worse.
April 18 will be the 70th anniversary of [Lt. Col. James H. “Jimmy”] Doolittle's Tokyo Raid. This surprise bombing attack on Tokyo and other Japanese cities provided a needed psychological lift for the American people, who had suffered through the devastating Pearl Harbor attack four months earlier.
On the last segment of his next-to-last episode on Fox News, Glenn Beck (left) took a few minutes for a brief recounting of how "progressives" in government co-opted the media via the creation of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) at the end of Woodrow Wilson's presidency.
If you're like me, you've been looking for some definitive analysis of exactly what Congress did regarding the detainee policy in the conference report (final bill) on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that was passed by the House 283-136 on December 14 and by the Senate 86-13 on December 15.

According to a Gallup poll published on October 13, 2010, 59 percent of Americans think the federal government has too much power. This represents a dramatic, 20-percent increase over the past seven years. Furthermore, we’ve all witnessed an amazing series of federal power grabs in the past few years: the bailouts, the government takeovers, the stimulus bill, the healthcare “reform” law known as ObamaCare, the financial regulatory law, the EPA’s regulation of greenhouse gases, the trillion-dollar deficits. Among constitutionalists, libertarians, Tea Party activists, Republicans, and Independents, the common expression is that our federal government is “out of control.”
On October 14 Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, gave a scathing refutation of the concept of man-caused global warming at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. He closed his presentation with a stern warning to Americans that President Obama will be signing a new climate change treaty (likely to be known as the Copenhagen Treaty) at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in early December and that this treaty will “impose a communist world government on the world.”
In less than two months, an exciting new movement has captured the imagination of freedom-minded Americans all across our nation. This movement, often referred to as the “State Sovereignty Movement,” is more properly referred to as the “Tenth Amendment Movement,” because it is not a movement to affirm the absolute freedom and independence of each state, but instead a movement to restore the balance of power between the states and the federal government within the union in accordance with the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution.
The Oklahoma House of Representatives on February 18 became the first state legislative body this year to pass a resolution affirming its "sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution of the United States." This resolution, HJR1003, was passed by the very lopsided margin of 83 to 13.
On December 10 the Judiciary Committee of the Ohio House held a hearing on House Joint Resolution No. 8 (HJR 8), “Applying to the Congress of the United States pursuant to Article V of the United States Constitution to call a constitutional convention for proposing amendments.” A couple days earlier an AP article had stated that there could be a “possible vote” on HJR 8 at the hearing. However, pro-constitution citizens, including members of the John Birch Society, Campaign for Liberty, and other like-minded groups, had been alerted about the hearing late in the preceding week.
