Camp Lone Star – Massey is Protected by State Law
By Gary Hunt Friday, August 28, 2015
There is a presumption in the minds of many people that the federal government has jurisdiction, anywhere. We even see the FBI investigating incidents in foreign, sometime hostile nations. Our purpose here however is to look at the extent, if any, of federal jurisdiction, within the geographic boundaries of the member States of the Union. It should be understood that there is a lot more to the extent of jurisdiction than will be discussed here. We are simply addressing those limitations as the apply to the recent events involving KC Massey and Camp Lone Star.

Camp Lone Star - Pressure Cooker of Just Us
By Gary Hunt Monday, August 24, 2015
A pressure cooker was used to make the bombs used in the Boston Marathon Bombing. However, besides cooking, there appears to be another form of pressure cooker used by the government. Pressure cookers use steam to build up pressure to increase the rate at which something cooks. It changes the normal conditions to conditions that have a more rapid effect on what is being, well, pressure-cooked.
KC Massey was returned to jail for violating his (innocent until proven guilty) pre-trial release conditions (Cruel and Unusual Punishments - Before Conviction). Prior to his pre-trial release, he had been held at Willacy Federal Detention Facility, and was placed in a solitary cell. After the violation, he was sent to a County Sheriff’s facility, Carrizales Rucker Detention Center, under federal authority. Again, he was placed in solitary confinement.
The Raping of America: Mile Markers on the Road to Fascism
By John W. Whitehead Monday, August 24, 2015
“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”—Martin Luther King Jr.
There’s an ill will blowing across the country. The economy is tanking. The people are directionless, and politics provides no answer. And like former regimes, the militarized police have stepped up to provide a façade of law and order manifested by an overt violence against the citizenry.
Camp Lone Star – Federal Gun Laws and the Commerce clause
By Gary Hunt Thursday, August 20, 2015
The entire “Felon in Possession” federal law is hinged on Commerce. From its inception, it has been enforced by taxation, since the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms is an agency of the U. S. Treasury department.

We Are the Government: Tactics for Taking Down the Police State
By John W. Whitehead Tuesday, August 18, 2015
We are the government.”—John Lennon
Saddled with a corporate media that marches in lockstep with the government, elected officials who dance to the tune of their corporate benefactors, and a court system that serves to maintain order rather than mete out justice, Americans often feel as if they have no voice, no authority and no recourse when it comes to holding government officials accountable and combatting rampant corruption and injustice.

The Constitution and the Christian Perspective
By Douglas V. Gibbs Monday, August 10, 2015
On Saturday night I attended a judicial forum at Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship in Temecula, and it turned out to be a very interesting event. The attendees, based on their questions, and the responses by the folks on the stage, reminded me that most Americans have a basic handle on what’s going on, and a faint idea of what the Constitution calls for in order for us to maintain our American System, but they are lost in the details. They know something needs to be done, but they don’t know how to do it. They realize things are wrong, but they aren’t sure exactly how it is that these things are so wrong, or how they got so wrong in the first place.
Arizona Misfits; A Bad Operation Gone Worse

The Hope That Does Not Disappoint
By Dr. Robert R. Owens Friday, August 7, 2015
Listening to the lies of the politicians as presented by the prattle of the biased it is easy to lose hope in a secular sense. My hope in an eternal sense is founded on the rock of an unshakable faith in Jesus, and so it cannot be shaken. However, in the secular resting, as it must upon the shifting sands of man in America today, hope as a measured commodity is all too often hopeless. Seeking for hope in current events, a diamond among the discards and a point of light in a sea of darkness, is seeking something positive among the gathering gloom of an empire in eclipse.
I don’t know about you, but I cannot focus on the negative trends of our current situation for long without at least contemplating depression and I don’t mean the economic kind. I am thankful I have a peace that passes all understanding and a hope that cannot be taken away, and I am also glad that I have a sense of History which gives me a context to frame the Now. For if all we have is the Now it can always be changed with the next headline, the next news bulletin, or the next press release. Having a historical context brings things into focus fitting the events of today into flow of time from yesterday to tomorrow.
If I Wanted to Destroy America, This Is How I’d Do It
By Tim Dunkin Friday, August 7, 2015
I was brainstorming recently, and I came up with a plan. It’s an absolutely brilliant plan. But it’s also absolutely wicked. It’s so brilliant and wicked, in fact, that I hesitate to even tell you all about it, because somebody might actually act on it, and do a huge amount of damage. One could even destroy a country—ours or someone else’s—if they were to fully implement this plan that I came up with. But you know what? I’m in a wicked mood right now, so I’m going to tell you all my plan, and the consequences be jiggered.
My plan is nothing less than a blueprint for destroying the United States of America. If followed, it would be guaranteed to turn America into just another third-world country, with no economy, no freedoms, and no morals. So you can see why I am so leery of telling anyone. It’s just so dangerous. Yet, as I said, I’m in an evil temper today, so here goes.
