“Trust Me…We Are US and There Is No ‘THEM.'” Podcast of January 18, 2014 Show

Hour 1

Hour 2

Here are the articles, quotes and videos I mentioned on the air…

The excellent book by Judge Andrew Napolitano on the Constitution…

Text of the President’s Speech here.

Rand Paul’s excellent rebuttal to the President’s speech:

Cass Sunstein: Domestic PsyOp Tsar? Click here.

Noam Chomsky’s “manufacturing consent” here.

Classic Zbigniew Brzezinski quotes here.

New York Times propaganda piece on Obama’s “transformation” from dove to hawk here. (I say the candidate worked for the power elite even as a candidate.)

Here is a telling quote from years ago…
“The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it’s been interpreted, and the Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.” – Barack Obama

And it’s always good to reread the Fourth Amendment:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

    Well put, Monica. They will always interpret the Constitution and laws of the land in the way that fits their agenda as long as they think that they can get away with it.

    Great show Monica. It’s a shame that there is no People’s Forum with the power to hold politicians accountable for their deceipts and outright crimes. Oh yes, there it is. It’s called rebellion!

    (PS: This is the first podcast that I’ve listened to complete with the commercials, weather, news, etc included. You do a great job of keeping the discussion flowing in what seems to be more off-air time than on. I hope that future podcasts will come nicely trimmed for easy listening.)

      OK – I’m working on fixing the podcasts – FYI this Saturday I’ll be talking about the Constitution and Presidential executive orders…What is there to do? If the Congress and the Supreme Court won’t act (and they won’t), rebellion isn’t the only way left – the States can act. Think they might?

    A big problem with living in the UK is I don’t get a good feel for what the individual States (the politicians that is) get up to. I’m sometimes surprised when one or more politicians goes against the tide because for the most part, even at State level they have to be “trusted” to get the backing from the elite. State legislatures might decide to sacrifice their political futures by taking the people’s side in one of these matters but even then, it might only be to temporarily quell any rebellious simmerings.

    I’m fairly well resigned to the status quo remaining until the empire collapses under its own weight so I quietly cheer on the rapid extermination of rights and rise of civil rights abuses because each of these is another log on the fire under us frogs. So many frogs are hopping mad already but we need a lot more before we get to critical mass. If we can get millions of angry frogs to understand that we do not need rulers, support for both State and Federal governments could vanish overnight giving us the opportunity to refashion society under libertarian principles.

    A man can dream! :o)
