Kick the insurgents out of Congress - restore our Constitutional freedoms!
In the American system, government employees are legally bound to uphold the laws enacted by legislatures chosen to represent the public will. It is not up to the president to make law by executive decree, and not up to public servants to decide whether the laws we have are right or wrong. That's the exclusive province of the courts to determine... yet even there we have to endure the disturbing tendency of judges to "legislate from the bench." These are violations of the basic principle of the separation of powers doctrine built into the U.S. Constitution by our very wise forefathers.
This is the alarming trend that seems to be rearing its ugly head — a blatant disregard for the Constitution and the separation of powers principle by congressweasels who have chosen to ignore the will of the people and continue to pass themselves off as "authorities," "officials," and worse, "leaders." They are meant to be exactly the opposite of all those things. Even the U.S. Justice Department — the very people charged with prosecuting law violators — have often taken power into their own hands illegally by choosing which laws they want to enforce and which they do not.
The anti-federalist Brutus, thought by most scholars to be New York Judge and delegate to the Constitutional Convention Robert Yates, warned in his essay No. 6 about Congress having too much power under Article 1, Section 8 (...power to lay and collect taxes, imposts, duties, and excises, according to the discretion of the legislature...) and eventually taking all authority from the states, and lastly, the individual.
"This power, exercised without limitation, will introduce itself into every comer of the city, and country — it will wait upon the ladies at their toilett, and will not leave them in any of their domestic concerns;
It will accompany them to the ball, the play, and the assembly;
It will go with them when they visit, and will, on all occasions, sit beside them in their carriages, nor will It desert them even at church;
It will enter the house of every gentleman, watch over his cellar, wait upon his cook in the kitchen, follow the servants into the parlour, preside over the table, and note down all he eats or drinks;
It will attend him to his bed-chamber, and watch him while he sleeps;
It will take cognizance of the professional man in his office, or his study;
It will watch the merchant in the counting-house, or in his store;
It will follow the mechanic to his shop, and in his work, and will haunt him in his family, and in his bed;
It will be a constant companion of the industrious farmer in all his labour, it will be with him in the house, and in the field, observe the toil of his hands, and the sweat of his brow;
It will penetrate into the most obscure cottage;
And finally, it will light upon the head of every person in the United States.
To all these different classes of people, and in all these circumstances, in which it will attend them, the language in which it will address them, will be GIVE! GIVE!"
Since at least the 1970s, Washington congressweasels have been promoting the shibboleth that if one group or the other has a perceived disadvantage in outcomes, then government must step in to ensure that everyone attains equal results. And so it has stepped into our personal lives ever more with each passing day until the average American barely notices or cares.
I must mention here that globalists and their promotion of globalism can never be anything but contradictory. Their politics are marked by contradiction, hypocrisy and deception. "Human rights" is a term that originated with communism and was adopted by the United Nations and other proponents of world governance.
Someone, after all, must define and monitor exactly what constitutes "human rights." God-given, individual, natural rights must be strangled so that human rights (a collectivist term) can be instituted by all-powerful, collectivist governments.
Most of you are already informed enough to know that the American nation was founded as a republic, not a democracy. A republic is a limited, representative, participatory government. A republic is the almost natural result of public order built upon the individual, the family, the Church, and business and many, many private associations and relations.
Democracy is not necessarily a representative government, but it is an illusory participatory government. This is what your friendly elected class wants you to believe our republic is. People tend to think that democracy is evolved or modern republicanism. Democracy is truly a veil for a wicked government that places all matters, including personal and private ones, into the public view, for public legislation.
In a democracy, the vote becomes the single, all-important symbol of citizen participation in life. Thus, politics become personal, and all conversations revolve around something that should not be part of personal life at all.
The brilliant Frenchman, Alexis de Tocqueville, described in his Democracy in America, the danger facing all Americans should they become deceived into believing that their mere, sole vote constituted everything about a good citizen. He warned that when this development came about, we should become slaves to the real, elitist and plutocratic powers operating behind the veil of democracy. The problem was obvious more than 150 years ago, when Tocqueville wrote his book.
Individualist, Libertarian and conservative voters should concentrate on finding candidates for state and local elections who will uphold the Constitution they swear to uphold and who are willing to take a bold stand for states' rights and against federal tyranny. It's at the state level that nullification of unconstitutional federal laws is to take place, as outlined by James Madison and Thomas Jefferson in the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions in 1789.
Gradualism — the glacial move away from federalism led by national politicians who used and continue to use the Federal Treasury to buy votes and reward crony corporations and intrude into state issues, and used by an activist federal judiciary — has turned republicanism on its head and into a fascist system of tyranny and oppression. To peacefully restore constitutional governance will be a gradual and difficult process, and its probability of success remains in doubt.
But it starts with you. No national politicians — who have invaded
Congress and instituted a globalist takeover of America and doused our freedoms
and liberties — will do this for you.

There’s an old proverb that says not to put all your eggs in one basket. When it comes to storing survival supplies, this proverb rings true. By keeping all of your supplies inside your home (or at any one location) you are setting yourself up for disaster.
This is where survival caches come in. Coming from the French word for “hide”, a cache is a setup that allows you to hide some supplies in a separate location. There’s a lot of strategy that goes into choosing where to put a survival cache and what to put in it.
On the one hand, you want your survival cache to be difficult to find so it's not discovered and stolen. On the other hand, your survival cache needs to be easily accessible, especially if you plan on accessing it during a bug out scenario...

Consumer Reports Investigates Dollar Stores
Consumer Reports discusses the pros and cons of shopping at dollar stores. And to the surprise of the Brooklyn-based author of the story, there were some real deals to be found. Here is the main story, and here is a related sidebar story about their price survey.
- Major power grid blackouts will occur this winter across the USA due to lack of coal and natural gas supplies, all tracking back to the libtard policies of "green energy" that have dismantled the power grid infrastructure across the USA, Europe and other nations. Full details in today's feature story and podcast.
- Food company Augason Farms just issued a letter to its suppliers, declaring it will "cease operations for 90 days," stating, "Augason Farms cannot fulfill any orders at this time." The company is having critical supply chain failures combined with extraordinary demand. This is happening across multiple supply chains.
The Dark Winter collapse is now accelerating. Use this weekend to acquire food, generators and other critical supplies. Everything is running out, and it's only the beginning.
The pandemic has caused many potential disaster resources to shut down. Agencies that would have provided relief or buildings that may have acted as hurricane or tornado shelters are no longer open. This means individuals need to be more prepared than ever should a disaster hit their area.
Natural disasters don't wait for a convenient time
And you shouldn't wait to prepare either. In some cases there is little to no warning.
Prepare now to lessen the impact of disasters and emergencies
Remember: You can’t buy life insurance after you’re dead!

TRS volt power bank - Back in stock!
3000mAh Power Bank Battery by Volt comes complete with a micro USB charging cord. This battery can be used as an extra or replacement battery
I’ve purchased a couple of power banks to add to my bug out bags. Do they lose power over time? How often should I check or recharge them?
-From Chris D.
Answer: A quality power bank can hold a charge for up to 6 months.
The thing is, most power banks will slowly lose charge over time depending on the temperature the power bank is stored at.
In addition, lithium-ion, and lithium-polymer batteries used in power banks eventually lose their capacity (typically between 200 up to 1000 cycles depending on the battery cell quality.)
The bigger the battery is, the less cycles you will need to charge it and the longer it will last. But, I would check them every 6 months if I were you.
