On COI #64, Mike Maharrey, communications director of the Tenth Amendment Center, returns to the show. Mike discusses the outlook for gold in 2021 and how buying gold undermines the war machine. He looks the benefits to both Bitcoin verses gold and explains why you may be interested in buying both. Mike explains movements happening at the state level to make gold legal tender. Mike and Kyle look at other issues prompted by TAC. Defend the Guard is a bill introduced in several states that would prevent the State's National Guard from being used in unconstitutional wars. The bill could be...

How George Washington Responded to ‘Insurrectionists’

George Washington

The recent protests and storming of the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6 produced a hysterical reaction from both pundits and the federal government. This contrasts wildly with the response to an actual rebellion during the Republic’s early days. The new federal government didn’t respond to the so-called Whiskey Rebellion with crackdowns on civil liberties to “prevent another rebellion” as many seem to want to do today. In 1794 Kentucky and Pennsylvania farmers took up arms in opposition to a federal whiskey excise tax. The Whiskey Rebellion concluded with President George Washington...

Cop Restrains Teenager, Proceeds to Slam Her Unconscious Into Concrete

Concrete Slam

School resource officers, particularly in Florida, always seem to be in the news for abusing or otherwise causing grave harm to the children they are allegedly sworn to protect. In case after infuriating case we’ve seen Florida cops cower behind a wall while children were murdered in a school to sexually assaulting the children they are tasked with protecting, to beating up small girls and even handcuffing and arresting 6-year-old children. Another one of these incident unfolded this week as a school resource officer was seen body-slamming a high school girl in an attempt to break up a...

11/13/20 Mike Maharrey: Saving the Republic by Abandoning the Empire

Scott talks to Mike Maharrey of the Tenth Amendment Center about the shameful state of U.S. foreign policy. In particular, Maharrey explains the way that congress has completely abdicated its role of declaring wars—instead, they have ceded that power fully to the president. Maharrey reminds us that all empires collapse eventually, and indeed that empire is often the final stage in a civilization's existence. If we want to preserve our republic, he says, we must do so at the cost of abandoning our empire. Scott and Maharrey share the hope that Colonel Douglas Macgregor, recently appointed...

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...

New Report on the Nullification Movement in America

Available formats (right-click to download): .pdf format .mobi format (for Kindle) .epub format (for Apple or Android) “Let us remember that if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom!” Writing as Candidus in the Boston Gazette on Oct. 14, 1771, Samuel Adams recognized an important and timeless truth. Turning a blind eye to an attack on liberty only guarantees that more attacks will follow in the future. The same goes for violations of the Constitution, which the Founders often referred to as “usurpations,” or the exercise of...

Jerome Powell Is Stealing Your Wealth

Powell Testimony 2018 (42753534974)

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....

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...
