Citizens for Constitutional Freedom? Or The Bundy Bunch?

On January 2nd, 2016, Ammon Bundy lead an armed group to occupy Oregon’s Malheur Federal Wildlife Refuge. The group of less than 25 call themselves the “Citizens for Constitutional Freedom.” Their primary claim extends a decades old controversy, that the Federal Government has no Constitutional authority to create and manage wildlife refuges on Federal land—absent State authorization. Furthermore, they believe that local economies are hurt when environmental protection takes precedence over industries such as cattle, logging, and mining.

Syria – Is There A Way Out? First, There Are Some Realities The West Must Face

The Syrian Civil War has been raging since March 2011. Approximately 250,000-300,000 people are dead, while another 11 million are displaced and continue to migrate to various parts of the Middle East and Europe. All the while, ISIS continues to acquire and hold territory throughout northeastern Syria and northwestern Iraq, realizing their objectives of 1) establishing a Caliphate, 2) enforcing 7th-century Sharia law, and 3) initiating the end-of-the-world Apocalypse by fighting a final battle with the Christian armies of Rome in Dabiq, Syria.

Keystone XL Pipeline – Do We Need It? At What Cost? Who Benefits? Who Knows!

The Keystone XL Pipeline (“XL”) is the 4th phase of the original Keystone project. What the press rarely seems to mention, is that phases 1-3 are already complete and transporting Alberta tar sands bitumen oil all the way to Illinois and Texas refineries. The XL portion is essentially a 2nd wider pipe from Hardisty, Alberta to Steele City, Nebraska, only this new pipe will take a more direct route across Montana, South Dakota, and Nebraska. The XL route to Steele City will be much shorter than Phase-1, provide for larger volumes, and enable additional oil from Montana and South Dakota to be added to the mix.

Israel and Gaza – A Human Tragedy

Israel’s current military operation in Gaza is a human tragedy, leading many to ask, isn’t there a better way? Sometimes it’s better to simply watch the videos. The first is an excellent documentary by ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap, exposing some troubling views within Israel, manifested by the composition and support of their leading soccer team, Beitar Jerusalem F.C. I highly recommend this video, it is very enlightening.

A Letter to Speaker Boehner – Reject The Koch Lords…of The Flies

Do you truly believe that (1) defaulting on existing legal obligations, (2) threatening the United States credit rating (14 amendment), (3) defaulting on T-Bills held by foreign nations, and (4) blocking settled law (ACA), are well and faithfully discharging your duties of office? Do you truly believe that undermining the Constitution; by failing to regulate foreign commerce and pay the public debt (Art I Sec 8) is conduct that upholds your oath of office? The American People know the answer, ignore them at your own peril.
