Property Rights Network Launched

The first Property Rights Network monthly training call was a huge success with several hundred people tuning in. As I said earlier, this call focused on positive events – victories that we have gained in the battle to protect property rights. I started with these events because I wanted to send a very important message – that we CAN and we ARE winning battles in local and state governments. Future conference calls will focus on more ways to win ...

Not One Inch… The Battle Cry For Property Rights

I have been pushing hard lately to let people know that, no matter how big and powerful the opposition, the assault from big government forces can be stopped. That’s why I want to tell you about a recent major victory in Louisiana where a wonderful, determined group of residents rose up and stopped the implementation of the Caddo Lake National Heritage Area. By the way, this is the second NHA we’ve stopped. The Crooked Road NHA in Virginia was successfully shut down by us a few years ago. National Heritage Areas are one of the most despicable stealth land grabs in the nation. Here’s why. Americans love history. And we love preserving significant places that played an important role in the making of our unique nation. So when we hear of a new plan in our area presented offering a chance to preserve some of our local heritage we are ...

Political Correctness, just one tool in the arsenal of Sustainability

“At its worst, political correctness is nothing different from Orwell's Newspeak - an attempt to change the way people think by forcibly changing the way they speak.” Urban Dictionary "Every child in America entering school at the age of five is mentally ill because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It's up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well by creating the international child of the future.”    Chester M. Pierce, Harvard psychiatrist, speaking as an expert in public education at the 1973 International Education Seminar. The "Dear Hillary" letter, written on Nov. 11, 1992 by Marc Tucker, president of the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE), lays out a plan "to remold the entire American system" into "a ...

Why Property Rights Matter – Prosperity – Stability – Freedom

There is an all out assault taking place in nearly every community against private property ownership. It’s being perpetrated at every level of government and funded by taxpayer grants. Yet few property owners raise objections, mainly because today most don’t have the basic understanding of the right of property ownership and its vital place in preserving our nation’s prosperity, economic stability and foundation of freedom. Most Americans tend to think of private property simply as a home -- the place where the family resides, store their belongings and find shelter and safety from the elements. It’s where you live. It’s yours because you pay the mortgage and the taxes. That’s about the extent of thought given to property ownership in today’s America. There was a time when property ownership was considered to be much more. Property, and the ability to own and control it, was life itself. The great economist, ...

It’s Time to Bring the Southern Poverty Law Center to Justice

There are many powerful forces operating today across the nation to divide the American people and silence opposing views. One of the most active of these efforts is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). There are two very serious reasons why the SPLC is in many ways more dangerous than other organizations that are fueling the flames of the far left radicals who use violence and lies to stop honest political debate. First, the SPLC has contracts with the federal government, specifically the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), serving as advisors to help define what a domestic terrorist or hate group is, even helping to write official policy for this agency of our government. Here are just a few examples: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a report entitled “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” ...

Destroy the Ability to Think to Destroy an Entire Culture

Intro by Tom DeWeese: In case you haven’t noticed, the United States of America is in real danger of disappearing. A President who is trying to make real changes in order to put out-of- control government back in the bottle is under siege from dark, hidden forces. Congress, controlled by his own party, refuses to take responsibility or direct action. And the nation’s court system ignores the laws of the land as judges become tools for the purpose of fulfilling a specific political agenda to destroy the very root of justice. Most telling in all of this is the state of the nation’s education system and how it is at the root of the revolution and its destruction of our culture. Rather than a well-rounded academic education, public education, from pre-school to college graduation, has become little more than an indoctrination process to create the perfect global village idiots. Indoctrinate, ...

Why Now? Tangled Webs: Google, Microsoft, Facebook, the Internet Giveaway, and the Wild, Wild West of Information

The use of lies and deception, or as the new term coming into vogue; fake news, has been a standard tool of the trade for over a century by the government and their willing and/or unwilling stooges in the main stream media. (1) A few examples include Newspaper owners William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer, with the unspoken blessings of US President, William McKinley, spreading lies to stir up the masses enough to start a war with Spain. (2) This allowed McKinley to start an American empire by taking over the Philippines, Guam, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico at the close of the 19th century. In the following decades, the media has obediently followed along coving up such things as the fraudulent Gulf of Tonkin (3) incident, the governmental attack on the Branch Davidians, (4) 9/11, (5) and the Obamacare fiasco. (6) In spite of the lies and distortions presented by ...

Uninhabitable Habitat for the World

Next month UN officials, stakeholders, NGOs, civil society, and world leaders will go back to Istanbul to, hopefully on their part, finish what they started mapping out in 1976 in Vancouver and 1996 in Istanbul. That is: because the cities are the vectors of social change, moving people to settlements of densely packed apartments (over service businesses and under offices) instead of single family homes, especially in the suburbs; walking and biking instead of driving personal cars; human rights instead of religious freedoms; temples to Gaia instead of churches and synagogues. Habitat III - United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development “In resolution 66/207 and in line with the bi-decennial cycle (1976, 1996 and 2016), the United Nations General Assembly decided to convene, the Habitat III Conference to reinvigorate the global commitment to sustainable urbanization, to focus on the implementation of a “New Urban Agenda”, building on the ...

Not so brave new world

Western Society Must Fall Before One World Government Can Be Established, George Soros  From A Government of Wolves by John W. Whitehead: “Years ago William L. Shirer author of The Rise and Gall of the Third Reich, observed that America may be the first country in which fascism comes to power through democratic elections. When and if fascism takes hold in America, the basic forms of government will remain. That, as Bertram Gross notes, is its ‘subtle appeal.” It will appear friendly. The legislators will be in session. There will be elections and the new media will cover all the political trivia. “But consent of the governed will no longer apply.; writes journalist Chris Floyd, because ‘actual control of the state will have passed to a small and privileged group who rule for the benefit of their wealthy peers and corporate patrons.’ Moreover: ‘To be sure, there will be factional ...

Traveling The Fabian Freeway to Hell

indoctrination |inˌdäktrəˈnāSHən|   noun   the process of teaching a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically. "First, we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia, then we will encircle the United States which will be the last bastion of capitalism. We will not have to attack. It will fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.    Nicholas Goncharoff the soviet defector attributed the quote to Lenin in his testimony before a senate subcommittee in 1954. "We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism."  Nikita Khrushchev 1960 All of this is to be brought about by Marx’s Dialectical, see diagram here. The process of getting from free market capitalism to socialism then communism was put in place over 100 years ago and has ...

Breaking News: The Hidden Agenda in Oregon

A note from Tom DeWeese: The stand off in Burns, Oregon just ended. A couple of weeks ago, one of the protestors, rancher Lavoy Finicum, was shot nine times by federal agents as he attempted to travel to a public meeting to discuss their purpose. Two others, brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy, were arrested and put in solitary confinement. The Main Stream Media has painted the occupiers as armed militia, even using terms like “unhinged.” These labels are untrue and unfair descriptions. The truth is this is a story with a long history of abuse by the federal government, leading to numerous confrontations with ranchers who have had their livelihood and homes destroyed. In the following article C.J. Hadley, Editor of Range Magazine, outlines the long sad, frustrating, tragic story of a growing government oppression over peaceful, law abiding American citizens who have simply had enough.

Know Your Enemy: Attack of the NGOs

The UN just wrapped up yet another international meeting attended by thousands of delegates and world leaders. This time they introduced and unanimously approved the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This is the 17 Goal reboot of Agenda 21 with plans to fully enforce it by 2030. Many people ask me who writes these Agendas and who attends these meetings. And especially people ask how they wield so much power and influence over our government. It’s a vast matrix composed of both private Non-governmental Organizations (NGO) groups and representatives of the UN and representatives of a large number of US federal agencies – all working together behind the scenes, quietly making policy for the rest of us. They make fun of our efforts to expose and fight Agenda 21, calling it a conspiracy theory. Through their condescending chuckles they boldly claim that Agenda 21 policy has no power of enforcement and ...

Patriots vs. Politicians 2015

Many of the younger generation must be truly bewildered over the emotions older Americans display when expressing love, devotion, respect and reverence for our country. A tear in the eye for a patriotic song... a hand over the heart as the national anthem plays... a salute to the flag as it passes in a parade. Why would we older folks do that? What frame of reference could younger Americans possibly have? Patriotism, nationalism - even American citizenship are taboo in today's school curriculum. Globalism, diversity, and political correctness trump real history, sound economics, and science. Communism is just another economic system. The Founding Fathers are simply old, dead slave-owning white guys. The UN's Declaration on Human Rights trumps the Declaration of Independence. Where are the heroes for today's young people to admire? Principled leaders who understood the roots of America's greatness now are replaced by blow-dried sound-byte kings whose professional ...

Why The Patriot Act is Tyranny and Rand Paul is a Hero

Senator Rand Paul is taking a lot of heat from establishment Conservatives and some in the media for his unwavering stand against the Patriot Act. The party line that is emerging says that we are now vulnerable to terrorist attack. Even Senator Paul, himself, said he was being accused of damaging America’s defenses against such attacks. These accusations are almost humorous considering that many of these same establishment Republicans have refused to force Barack Obama to enforce immigration laws. That fact now allows literally anyone who wants to harm our nation to cross over the border and to not only remain here, but also to receive tax payer benefits and perhaps even the right to vote. Reportedly, Obama is allowing people from the same Middle Eastern nations that give rise to terrorism to flood into our nation at horrific rates. Newly announced presidential candidate Lindsey Graham is especially guilty of ...

Featured News Item Global Warming – the Excuse for Control By Tom DeWeese While Gallup polls show that “Less Than A Third Of Americans Still Worry About Global Warming”, the government, mainstream media, green groups and the UN are screaming that Global Warming (climate change, weather, whatever term they are using for GW today) is going to destroy Earth.  Billions of hard-earned tax dollars are being spent to convince us that our entire life should be dedicated to eradicating this figment of some deranged mind(s). While the world has cooled for over a decade (in spite of moving measuring gauges to heat-sinks -- airports, inner-city locations) the globalists won’t let up.  They chose this myth as their boogeyman to scare us into giving up our freedom and our money, and in spite of it not working, they have decided not to change horses in midstream.  So they will continue to chant ...

Have you read my book – Now Tell Me I Was Wrong?

You know, it’s been a couple of years since my book was published and I have sold a lot of them as I travel across the country, speaking about Agenda 21. But I took a few minutes during this past weekend to look through the book again and frankly, it still surprises me. If I must say so myself, this is a very good book. It covers a vast number of issues in quick, easy to read essays. These essays are a collection of articles I wrote over a fifteen year period for my newsletter The DeWeese Report. The articles were written during some of the greatest changes to our government, schools, economy and personal freedoms ever witnessed in our nation. The political events of the 1990s and early 2000s led to the outrages of Barack Obama and the massive drive toward an American socialist dictatorship. And I reported on most of it. I wrote some of the first articles ...

Attack of the NGOs

Who are these None governmental Organizations (NGOs) shock troops and how do they operate? It’s a vast matrix composed of both the private NGO groups and representatives of the UN and representatives of a large number of US federal agencies – all working together behind the scenes, quietly making policy for the rest of us. And when I attempt to expose them, they vehemently deny there is any collusion – “pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.” Sorry, the truth is – this is how it works. No vote. No public input. Just the enforcement of an agenda through the willing participation of private groups and government officials who forgot their purpose was to represent, not dictate to us. The NGOs are the storm troopers necessary to make it all happen. The article below was first published in 2008, has been included in the American Policy Center’s “Stop ...

In Defense of the TEA Party

Just a few years ago some American citizens came together to demand change. They were fed up with decades of out of control government growth; confiscation of their hard-earned income through ever-increasing taxes and unending regulations invading every aspect of their lives. Things were racing out of control. Every aspect of American society was changing and not for the better. Freedoms and rights that are guaranteed under the Constitution – the founding document of our nation and law of the land, were disappearing. Elected representatives turned a deaf ear to  concerned citizens. It seemed those in power simply didn’t care. No matter the outcome of elections, nothing changed. There was a sense of hopelessness, helplessness and frustration as concerned citizens saw the America they loved disappearing. The answer? Enter the TEA Party – declaring “Taxed Enough Already.” It was time to make their voice heard. It was time to directly ...

Conservation Easements and the Urge to Rule

Conservation easements. The Green Mafia tells us this is the only way to save the family farm. Without its tax credits and restrictions on development rights, America will be paved over and Astroturf will replace sod. We’re in crisis, they tell us. However, as H.L Mencken once warned, “A plan to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.” Conservation and environmental groups openly advocate the conservation easements as the answer to saving farm land, as do state departments of agriculture, farm bureaus, and the federal government. A full court press is on to lock in millions of acres of private property under the blazing headline “Save the Family Farm.” There’s no question that the family farm is under assault. Taxes, international trade agreements, inflation, and government regulations are eating away at the ability to keep the farm operating. I’ve never met a farmer who ...
