A Nation in Decline

January 27, 2010 By Tom DeWeese Many politicians are asking the question today: “Why are the American People so angry?” The following may lend a clue to the clueless. According to the annual “Index on Economic Freedom,” produced by the Heritage Foundation, the United States now ranks 8th, just behind Canada. That’s a drop of two full points since last year, and the largest drop of all nations in overall economic freedom. . The index ranking is based on 10 measures of economic openness, regulatory efficiency, the rule of law, and competitiveness. The basic principles of economic freedom emphasized in the index are individual empowerment, equitable treatment and the promotion of competition. According to the Heritage Index, the U.S. lost ground in seven of the ten categories. Losses were particularly significant in the areas of financial and monetary freedom and property rights. Driving it all were the massive bailouts, government ...

The Revolution is Gathering

January 20, 2010 By Tom DeWeese It is becoming more and more obvious that the Democrat leadership, from Obama, to Pelosi to Reid, have absolutely no clue about the strength of the growing opposition to their big government agenda. They still think the TEA Party movement is the brainchild of the Republican Party and that TEA Party leaders are just paid Republican lackeys. Even after the dramatic and shocking win by Scott Brown in Massachusetts, where Republicans number only 12 percent of registered voters, Democrats continue to make excuses about the inept campaign run by Coakley, saying her defeat had nothing to do with opposition to the Democrats; health care mess. That’s amazing, considering Brown rallied voters time and again by shouting, “I am the 41st vote against health care,” resulting in a surge of supporters (especially independents). Even today, the Democrats are in denial, determined to continue to work ...

Continental Congress 2009 – The Next Step for a Free People

January 6, 2010 By Tom DeWeese In recent years Americans have become more and more alarmed at the lack of adherence to the U.S. Constitution exercised by Congress and other elected representatives. The list of violations has grown large indeed. Some have tried to fight the violations through the election process, attempting to remove those representatives who have perpetrated them. Others have tried to fight infringing legislation as it is introduced. Still others have fought in the courts, attempting to defend liberties in front of judges who have sworn to uphold the Constitution. To date, little has worked as many elected representatives and court rooms openly defy the Constitution, calling it antiquated. Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court announce that they now look to international law for precedence and guidance, rather than the Constitution. Government at all levels is growing ever further from the reach of the people. In such ...

Year of Youth: Project 2012 to Save the Republic

December 18, 2009 Issued By Tom DeWeese Over this past year it has been my privilege to work with some outstanding young people in the fight for freedom. Considering that most have come through a public school system that teaches them next to nothing about America’s unique liberties, it’s quite surprising to hear their passion for the Constitution and their ability to articulate it. We need these young people to be active and effective in coming campaigns. Now there is a movement organizing to do just that. It’s called Year of Youth: Project 2012. In American politics one seldom sees political movements which advocate limited government positions targeting the youth. Just as rare are movements that work from the ground up, focusing on local campaigns and allowing federal involvement to grow up from the local level. This is precisely what is being attempted in Year of Youth: Project 2012. The ...

The Waste of Tax Dollars Never Ends

- Items of Interest - December 2, 2009 By Tom DeWeese The Obama Phone The nation is collapsing under the federal deficit and Washington can’t find a dime to cut from the budget. Here’s an idea. Stop the Obama phone. What’s the Obama phone, you ask? Well then, that tells me something important about you – you aren’t on welfare – you are just a stupid tax payer. Because everybody on the dole knows about the Obama phone. It’s a government program called “Lifeline Benefits” that provides free telephone service to “income-eligible consumers.” Don’t you actually have to buy something to be a “consumer?” Apparently not in the era of “Change.” So, in short, through this taxpayer-paid boondoggle, welfare recipients get; (1) a FREE new phone; (2) approximately 70 FREE minutes EVERY MONTH. The website states, “you will receive free cellular service, a free SafeLink Wireless cell phone and the ...

Why Drug Companies are Working to Control Natural Supplements

November 25, 2009 By Tom DeWeese As the battle over government-controlled health care continues, many Americans simply want out of the whole mess. They instead seek a plan of wellness based on healthy eating and natural supplements. That approach, however, is the opposite of the health care agenda of the American Medical Association and the Pharmaceutical industry. Those forces, which literally control America’s health industry, are based on sickness. The sicker you are, the more drugs you will buy. In addition, insurance companies, working hand in hand with the AMA and the drug companies, refuse to provide coverage for the wellness approach. Most won’t pay for natural supplements nor will they pay for visits to homeopaths or chiropractors. The only thing most Americans can do when sick (and unable to afford to pay for natural treatment out of their pockets) is to stick with the big pharma/AMA game plan. In ...

Get Out of Our House (GOOOH)

A Disinfectant on Congress? November 17, 2009 By Tom DeWeese There is a lot of talk across the nation about how to replace sitting members of Congress and restore the Republic as established by the Founders. The conversations usually end in frustration as 95% of incumbents continue to be re-elected, seemingly untouchable inside a system designed to keep them in office. Most polls indicate that well over 80% of Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing, yet 95% of incumbents get re-elected every election. Why? Because the process for selecting our representatives is broken. A recent Rasmussen poll said that only 25% of voters insist the election process for Congress should remain the same. Yet, to bring about significant change – indeed to replace a majority of Congress would take a ton of money and organization. I recently came across a bold yet simple plan to replace all 435 ...

“Globally-Acceptable Truth” and the Crime of Thinking – Part 2

By Tom DeWeese A New Dark Ages Sustainable development is the policy Mr. Sagar's thought control was created to implement. Ant to Mr. Sagar, these concepts we call freedom are nothing more than delusion. And that's why he and his fellow travelers are so dangerous to us. They use every sort of deception, half-truth and non-science to implement this concept for the virtual captivity of the human spirit. Through the policies of Sustainable Development and “globally-acceptable truth” we are very quickly being led back to the tyranny and to the darkest ages of human history. The last time the human race was faced with such an attack on reason and free thought was during the Inquisition in the 13th Century. Then, most of Europe lived under the tyranny of one small, self appointed gang — which made the decision about what proper thought and conduct was to be. Anyone who ...

“Globally-Acceptable Truth” and the Crime of Thinking – Part 1

By Tom DeWeese Do you feel it? It’s everywhere. On television. In the newspaper. At any public gathering. In any discussion – even among friends. It’s a feeling of mistrust. Nervousness. Suspicion. Even rage. Mostly, it’s just under the surface. But more and more it’s bubbling to the top. Political debate is breaking into outright war. Just say the words, "I don’t believe government should do that…” and the war is on. Take a side. Feel the heat. Tolerance is a thing of the past. There is an all out, vicious attack on anyone who doesn’t respond properly. Ridicule. Intimidation. Public shunning. Destruction of careers. Removal from public meetings. All await those who express thoughts outside the politically-correct box. Climate change skeptics are scientists who have gone beyond the hype and conducted their own research, and made their own findings. It’s what scientists do. For their efforts they have been ...

Only ten years late…. Mainstream Media Finally Catching Up to The DeWeese Report

March 17, 2009 By Tom DeWeese Again and again, The DeWeese Report has told you that the real agenda we face is a global one called Sustainable Development, as outlined in the UN’s soft-law document called Agenda 21. We’ve warned that this policy is designed to establish the United Nations as the main force for imposing global government, replacing national sovereignty, controlling the economy and the population, and that it is based on a strange mixture of Socialism and Fascism. Time and again, we’ve reported that global governance is a euphemism for global government. In addition, we’ve exposed the world-wide environmental movement as the driving force for such policies, working toward a wrenching transformation of the world economy, using the environment as the center (or the excuse) for such policy. I think that about sums up what The DeWeese Report has been focused on for our entire existence. And for ...

Learning the Free Market Lessons about Bailouts

February 19, 2009 By Tom DeWeese My first reaction, when I saw the article, was of utter horror. It was entitled, “Obama Imposes Pay Cap on Executives.” Obama intends to dictate salary caps to American executives of private companies.  We should all be very frightened of a government that seeks such power. It’s pure communism. The only result of such a situation can be that corporate executives and CEOs become mere employees with no incentives to build the business and increase profits. When that happens, there is no business. In a free market, the CEO is free to take advantage of earned profits and pay himself accordingly – assuming the board of directors go along – presumably they too are profiting. All is well. But in a free market there is also the very real risk that the company can fail. Most, in fact, do fail. It’s a rare company ...

Walker’s Misinformation Campaign Against Tom DeWeese Continues

January 23, 2009 By Tom DeWeese For the past few weeks I have basically been stalked by a guy named Bill Walker, promoting himself as an expert on the Constitution, specifically on the issue of a Constitutional Convention. Walker has attacked my position on the Con Con, specifically my premise that once such a convention has been called and the delegates are meeting there is no way to control the agenda. In making that point, I an other opponents to a Con Con have cited a letter written by Former Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Berger, in which he says, as we do, that the agenda of a Con Con cannot be controlled. Obviously the contents of that letter damage Walker's argument. So he has set out to prove the letter is a fake. His entire premise is based on a mistaken date listed on a copy of the letter ...

The Battle to Stop the Constitutional Convention

January 16, 2009 By Tom DeWeese The phone call came to my home late on Tuesday night telling me that the next morning the Ohio House of Representatives would be holding hearings on a resolution to call for a Constitutional Convention. We knew this was not good news. But the news was even worse. To our shock, records indicated that if Ohio were to pass such a resolution, it would be state number thirty-three. Only thirty-four states are needed to officially kick the convention apparatus into gear. We were only two states away! And we had only 18 hours to prepare for battle. Now, sponsors of the resolution were not wild-eyed Leftists who sought to purge the Constitution. Rather, they were patriotic Republican conservatives who were vitally concerned about the massive spending spree and bailouts taking place in Washington, D.C. The issue, said the sponsors, was to add a balanced ...

TxDot Plays Opossum Over TTC

January 14, 2009 On January 6, 2009, The Dallas Morning News carried a headline which read “Trans Texas Corridor is dead, TxDot says.” The article went on to report, “The Texas Department of Transportation announced this morning that it has officially killed the Trans Texas Corridor, saying that despite the project’s visionary aspects, it is clearly not the choice of Texans.” The fact that TxDot is taking this action to disown the Trans Texas Corridor is testimony to the incredible job by grassroots activists who have opposed the TTC and the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). We have made life miserable for these officials who have tried to force such policy on us in virtual secrecy. They’ve been caught and so they have bailed out. The “American Land Foundation” and “Stewards of the Range”, two major opponents headed by Dan and Margaret Byfield, have been successful in organizing 9 local ...

Barrack Obama and the Weathermen

December 22, 2008 By Tom DeWeese Since just before the election of Barack Obama in November, it has been interesting and quite shocking that a forty-year old, seemingly forgotten radical group called “Weatherman” is getting so much attention. Of course, Obama denies any connection to old Weathermen. Here’s a quick history of the “Weathermen” and why it’s relevant to a new president calling for an undefined “change.” You’ve heard the famous names: Bill Ayres, Mark Rudd, Bernadine Dohrn and Jeff Jones, among others. Today, Ayres describes himself as a professor; Dohrn is his wife and a clinical law professor, Jeff Jones, predictably is an environmentalist and political consultant, and Mark Rudd is now a teacher. Just normal Americans, living their lives. Really? In 1962, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) was born. It was a radical organization of college students. SDS quickly became the opposition to the Viet Nam War ...

OPPORTUNITY

November 14, 2008 By Tom DeWeese There is no question that election day, 2008 was a dismal one for those who believe in limited government, free enterprise and individual liberty - the principles of freedom upon which this nation was founded. There is carnage on the battlefield; despair in our hearts; and fear for our future. What does the future hold? Where do we go from here? Can we survive? Well, call me Pollyanna, but I see opportunity - lots of it. The fact is the American electorate did not reject the principles of freedom as they elected Barack Obama. They rejected the failed policies of George W. Bush. Period. The issues of limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty weren’t on the table. Neither McCain nor Obama mentioned them. Barack Obama ran a brilliant campaign. He used the word "change" and that word means many things to many people ...

Free Enterprise Did NOT Cause the Market Meltdown

October 22, 2008 By Tom DeWeese I rarely watch the Sunday morning political shows like Meet the Press and This Week. What's the point? It's just a gabfest of the elite pouring out their version of reality, usually surrounding one lone conservative with a panel of liberals, calling it balanced. I've been in that situation too many times to know real facts rarely get through the posturing. Yet, for some strange reason I found myself watching several of the shows on the Sunday after the market started its meltdown - just after the Bush Administration proposed its bail out plan. I guess I wanted to hear their reactions to an amazing government proposal to take over the free market. Most telling was George Stephanopoulos' ABC program, This Week, and his panel of experts, including Sam Donaldson, Donna Brazile and George Will. Again and again the "experts" invoked the 1929 market ...

Obama and the “Professional Black-Victims Cartel”

October 14, 2008 By Tom DeWeese Americans beware. In the future, should you disagree with "President" Obama, apparently you will be labeled a racist. As has been highly reported, Democrat Representative John Lewis of Georgia said McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin were "sowing the seeds of hatred and division..." In the same breath, Lewis then made a comparison to George Wallace. The reference to Wallace can only mean one thing - racism. It seems the attacks were made because McCain and Palin have started to comment on known associates of Obama who have questionable backgrounds. Obama has tried to get people off the trail of these associates by saying it was a long time ago, not relevant, and so on. When that didn't work, Obama's troops played the race card even though John McCain has made no reference to Obama's race. The fact is Obama's relationships to known ...

Press-Release Lap Dogs

September 17, 2008 By Tom DeWeese "We're supposed to fall for a candidate who has to play up her eight years as the mayor of a town of 6,715 - where the Associated Press devastatingly remarked the "biggest civic worry is whether there will be enough snow for the Iditarod dog-mushing race" - and her time on the PTA to round out her resume." The news media - just being fair. America's news media is surprised and appalled at the accusations that it has been too hard on Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Says the media, "examining the record of the Alaska governor, of whom not much is known about, is the legitimate line of inquiry for the press. Time Magazine's Joe Kline believes the McCain team's attacks on the media are simply a tactic meant to thwart inquiries into Palin's history. "This is a smoke screen, intended to ...

The Great North American Phone-In

September 1, 2008 By Tom DeWeese Those who are angry about the possible creation of a North American Union and are tired of being ignored by elected officials who deny the NAUs existence have an opportunity to deal with both. Set the date on your calendar: September 16, 2008. That's the day scheduled in both Canada and the US for "The Great North American Phone In." On that date, citizens of the United States and Canada are encouraged to call members of the U.S. Congress and the Canadian Parliament to voice opposition to the NAU. The purpose is to flood these centers of the "people's representatives" with phone calls to literally shut down their switchboards. Maybe that will get their attention. Congress has simply denied the existence of the creation of a North American Union. They tell us that the "Security and Prosperity Partnership" is simply a "dialog" among the ...
