The Impeachable Offenses of Barack Hussein Obama
by Terence James Mason
I've had no additional commentary on Part 1 or Part 2 since the Part 2
publication, and there have been no significant new developments in terms of the President's
executive orders on "gun control," including actual publication of the text which
he signed. (Impeachable offenses and simple disgraceful performance by other officials at
the recent hearings on the subject are not the subject of this series of articles). So I
will continue from my point of departure in Part 1....

"And That's the Way It Is..."
by L. Neil Smith
The other day I saw somebody complaining that long-respectable, often
revered institutions are collapsing all around us. Government for one: governors, state
legislators, judges, senators, representatives, presidents, generals, and admirals are all
turning out to have feet of clay, right up to their navels. The police are nothing more now
than another urban gang to avoid or, in the worst case, defend yourself from.
TNM's Official Response To White House
by Bob Phipps
The White House recently responded to a petition on their "We The
People" website regarding the issue of Texas independence. Below is the official response
from the Texas Nationalist Movement.
Comments on the 2nd Amendment
First let me preface my remarks by stating that I am not a 'gun guy'. I
do not hunt. I do not target shoot. I do not collect guns. I do not belong to the NRA. I do
not live in a 'rough' part of town. I own no guns, nor have I ever needed to have one. The
last time I fired a shot in anger was in 1968. That being said, there are many people today,
(myself included), who have a deep (and a legitimate), distrust of the government.
The Americans With No Abilities Act
President Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate are considering
sweeping legislation that will provide new benefits for many Americans. The Americans
With No Abilities Act is being hailed as a major legislative goal by advocates of the
millions of Americans who lack any real skills or ambition.

Recently I acquired a Texas Star 2 piece belt buckle. It's a cheap
copy of a Confederate uniform buckle. I'll probably replace it down the line with a
better version of the same thing. I'm from Texas and a bit of a history nerd (professional
requirement if you think about it.).
The Flu Vaccine
A Necessity or Unnecessary Evil, You Decide
by Dawn Eckel
IAPP-NWU KANSAS CITY: Fear resonates throughout the world as multiple
flu cases and viral infections become widespread coast to coast. The most common decision
plaguing individuals during this time is whether to vaccinate themselves in an effort to
escape the plight of several missed days at work, crouched in pajamas, riddled with symptoms
varying from aches, pains, sniffling, coughing and fever. In some cases escalating to camping
out in their home lavatory to pay penance to a porcelain god in the form of vomiting until
they're exasperated and writhing from dry heaving for hours on end.
Proper Forms of Resistance
by Paul Bonneau
I suppose it's beginning to dawn on people that we are in a country at
war. No, not a war with Yemen, or whatever other Middle Eastern plunderzone du jour
is on the menu. What I mean is war between the ruling class and the people the rulers think
of as peons—us.
Musings of a Libertarian Buddhist
by Ish Calleros
Recently, I was challenged by an Obama supporter friend of mine. A
fellow "Buddhist" as to my views on gun control. The fact that I thought guns kept people
safe from criminal and tyrannical activity apparently disqualified me from walking as did
The Buddha. This statement already illustrates the problem at hand. Coercion.
The "Left" is NOT anti-war!
The Kaptain's Log
by Manuel Miles, aka Kaptain Kanada
I often read articles bemoaning the absence of the "left" from the
anti-war movement these days. People ask why "liberals" only oppose the imperial wars
when a "right wing" Republican is the president of the empire but not when a "liberal"
Democrat is leading the slaughter. The answer is simple: the "left-liberal" types are
not against war—especially not imperial war.
Message to a Mini-Statist
by L. Neil Smith
I butted into a conversation earlier today that was being held on
a Facebook page dedicated to defining the principles and practices of a free society.
Despite the tenor of our times (or likelier because if it), I think this sort
of thing is more important than it's ever been.
What Monopoly of Force?
by Paul Bonneau
I was reading Sobran's excellent article The Reluctant Anarchist,
in the context of the current imbroglio about firearms, when it struck me how inadequate the
notion is, that "The essence of the state is its legal monopoly of force." In virtually all
articles where I have seen it mentioned, it is expressed as a given, as unquestionable, that
the state has a monopoly of force or of violence. Yet how descriptive of reality is this notion?
The Tension within American Exceptionalism
by Wendy McElroy
The concept of American exceptionalism is a key foundation of
American freedom and militarism, individualism and imperialism. The meaning of the
term seems to be elastic, changing through time and depending upon the purpose of
each speaker. It has suffered a fate similar to the word "liberalism" in drifting
far from its historical roots.
