An Oppressive Cycle: How Police Militarization and Police Violence Reinforce Each Other

An Oppressive Cycle: How Police Militarization and Police Violence Reinforce Each Other

The militarization of state and local police through federal government programs changed the character of policing in the United States. It has turned “protect and serve” into “command and control.” Instead of serving the community as “peace officers,” many state and local law enforcement agencies have turned into domestic military forces. We see the images on TV news—cops in military gear, riding on armored vehicles and toting military-style weapons. Police apologists claim militarizing law enforcement agencies helps them fight dangerous criminals more effectively and that it makes the...

OSHA’s Vaccine Mandate Was Never Possible

OSHA’s Vaccine Mandate Was Never Possible

On November 18, 2021 OSHA suspended enforcement of the Biden administration's vaccine mandate. According to a CBS News report, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will rely heavily on informants to help enforce the federal vaccine mandate. More significantly, the report asserts the federal government will have to rely on snitches because OSHA lacks the personnel to enforce the mandate itself. According to the report, the U.S. Department of Labor “will need a lot of help” enforcing the vaccine mandate. “Yet its Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) doesn’t...

A Bill To Reject Unconstitutional Executive Orders Passes South Dakota House Committee

A Bill To Reject Unconstitutional Executive Orders Passes South Dakota House Committee

Today, a South Dakota House committee passed a bill that would create a mechanism to review presidential executive orders and end state cooperation with enforcement of certain orders determined to violate the U.S. Constitution. This process would set the stage to nullify some executive orders in effect in South Dakota. Rep. Aaron Aylward (R-Harrisburg), along with 16 Republicans, introduced House Bill 1194 (HB1194) on Feb. 1. Under the proposed law with an amendment passed today, the state legislature’s executive board would be required to review any executive order issued by the President...

Joe Biden’s Phony Limits on Police Militarization

Joe Biden’s Phony Limits on Police Militarization

According to a CNN report, President Joe Biden plans to reinstate Obama-era limits on a federal police militarization program.  While this sounds like progress toward ending the militarization of local police departments, the Obama limits were little more than window-dressing. Through the federal grant programs such as the 1033 program, local police departments procure military-grade weapons. Police can also get military equipment through the Department of Homeland Security via the (DHS) “Homeland Security Grant Program.” The DHS doles out over $1 billion in counterterrorism funds to state...

How the War in Yemen Is Destroying America’s Constitution

How the War in Yemen Is Destroying America’s Constitution

While Americans obsess over election results, the U.S. government’s war machine has helped destroy millions of lives in the small desert land known as Yemen. Many have lauded Donald Trump as the most “anti-war president” in decades. But early in his presidency, Trump loosened the rules of engagement in both Somalia and Yemen. The result was a bombing campaign that eclipsed anything seen during even the Obama and Bush years. President Trump ramped up the war in the small impoverished Middle Eastern nation within days of taking office. According to Business Insider, Trump ordered commandos to...

Jerome Powell Is Stealing Your Wealth

Jerome Powell Is Stealing Your Wealth

The Federal Reserve has doubled down on its policy of devaluing your money. During a speech in Jackson Hole last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell announced a shift in the central bank’s inflation policy. In the past, the central bank has targeted a 2 percent inflation rate as measured by CPI. Now it will follow a policy of “average inflation targeting.” In effect, the Fed will allow the CPI to run “moderately” over 2 percent “for some time” to balance out periods where it runs under that level. “Many find it counterintuitive that the Fed would want to push up inflation. However,...

The Constitution Is Not Your Friend

One of the biggest misconceptions I hear about the Constitution is that it was written to “protect our liberty.” It wasn’t. At least not in a direct sense. The confusion likely arises from the words of the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” It’s true that the...

How State Governments Can Fight the Federal Reserve

How State Governments Can Fight the Federal Reserve

If you want to end unconstitutional, overreaching federal power—end the Fed. It’s the engine that drives the most powerful government in the history of the world. But Congress will never abolish the central bank. It can’t even come up with the will to audit the Fed. So what can we do? Even though state action can’t end the Fed, there are steps states can take that will undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money. By passing laws that encourage and incentivize the use of gold, silver and cryptocurrency in daily transactions by the general public, state action has the potential to create...
