We Are Beginning to Move the Rock of Freedom Uphill

Address to the 9th Annual Freedom 21 National Conference Dallas, Texas July 26, 2008 PART 2 By Tom DeWeese President, American Policy Center THE SUPREME COURT Gun Control And there's more good news. June was a very good month for us. The Supreme Court ruled that individual Americans have a right to own guns. They struck down the age-old DC gun ban. We won the most important Second Amendment Constitutional case in American history. And the other side is beside themselves. The Washington, DC news media reported the Courts ruling like a disaster was about to come down on the poor folks of DC. Every single local news broadcast in DC that night actually combined the report of the Court's ruling with a memorial service that was being held for a young kid who had been gunned down in the streets - a common occurrence in DC. The obvious message ...

What to do when you don’t like any of these candidates

May 30, 2008 By Tom DeWeese Hillary Clinton. John McCain. Barack Obama. Those are our choices for the next president of the United States. Are you happy with that selection? If not, what is your alternative? As the saying goes, “The lesser of two evils is still evil.” Beyond the presidential race we have congressional candidates, governors, state legislators, county commissioners, mayors, and city council candidates. Are you happy with whom the parties have chosen to offer for election? If not, what’s your alternative? The real issues of the day are not even being addressed in the campaigns. The falling dollar that will render our money worthless; the rising gas prices that grab the last of our worthless money; the invasion of illegal aliens that are changing our society; the globalization of our economy; assaults on our private property; the loss of American jobs to foreign countries; and now the ...

Revolution Takes Time and Planning WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN

April 16, 2008 By Tom DeWeese It is now obvious that Rep. Ron Paul will not be elected President of the United States in November 2008. There are those who have predicted that the Republic will die if Paul is not occupying the White House next January. A dire prediction, most certainly overstated, but considering the candidates left in the offering, it can be said with equal certainty that the Republic is going to be severely damaged by the next administration. Rather than throw ourselves in a fetal position and wait for Armageddon, now is the time to make some concrete, long term plans to assure we can elect the next Ron Paul. That, in fact, is exactly what Rep. Paul had in mind when he started his campaign in the first place. Without getting involved in the dynamics of party politics and the Herculean task involved in gaining control ...

Patriots vs. Politicians

November 14, 2007 By Tom DeWeese 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 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 ...

Anti-NAU Warriors Beginning to Move the Rock Uphill!

October 16, 2007 By Tom DeWeese Just a year ago most would have predicted there was no way to stop the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) which many believe will become a North American Union (NAU). The proponents are rich, powerful and determined. From the White House to huge, wealthy international corporations, these proponents of the SPP are used to getting their way. The little people back in their grassroots are just silly pawns to be manipulated or ignored. But there are signs that the huge rock at the bottom of the hill that is the unmovable NAU is beginning to budge uphill as heroes are emerging in the fight. Some close to the movers and shakers are beginning to hint at a concern that they just might not be able to implement the SPP - that darned opposition just won’t go away. At the same time, anti-NAU forces are ...

Heads up! We’ve Won Some Victories

June 18, 2007 By Tom DeWeese So many in the freedom movement are quick to accept the idea that we cannot win against the forces of tyranny. They are dragging their chins on the ground and sit in despair. Darned if I understand why. 2007 and the Democrat-controlled Congress has been one of the greatest tests for the ideas of limited government and preserving the Republic. Forgive me for sounding like Pollyanna, but so far, we are winning. Frankly, this Congress has failed to pass a single significant piece of legislation to hurt us. Of course that can change quickly, but we can face that when it comes. For now, stop fretting and look at the bright side. First, the defeat of the Senate Immigration bill is without question, the greatest victory for the Republic in at least a decade. While many have lamented that the American people are asleep, ...

The Principles of Freedom vs. Public/Private Partnerships – Part 3

Address by Tom DeWeese Freedom 21 National Conference - Dallas, Texas PART 3 No Time to Hang Our Heads We indeed face difficult times, dealing with issues and policies no Americans before us have had to face. The double speak, the deceit and the betrayal have left us all exhausted and depressed. And my friends, I think that is the greatest obstacle you and I face in the battle to truly restore the Republic. It’s not the power elite, or the force of government or hidden conspiracies. It’s our own attitude. So many in the freedom movement are quick to accept the idea that we cannot win against the forces of tyranny. We are dragging our chins on the ground and sit in despair.

The Principles of Freedom vs. Public/Private Partnerships – Part 2

The Third Rail = Corporate Social Responsibility Address by Tom DeWeese Freedom 21 National Conference - Dallas, Texas PART TWO Now, I’ve talked about the two-way partnership between certain business and government. But there is a third rail that is having a major influence on the policy being created by the PPPs. Picture, if you will, an Isosceles triangle. And label each point: 1.Government Power 2. Corporate Money 3. NGOs Agenda The truth is, corporations aren’t always willing players in the partnerships - neither is government, for that matter. Many times both are answering to pressure from activists with a specific agenda. Those activists come in the guise of Non-governmental organizations (NGOs). They are determined, dedicated and radical. They mean business and they have the means to force their will on companies. It’s almost masochistic to watch how they treat companies. Perhaps you’ve heard the term Corporate Social Responsibility. The ...

The Principles of Freedom vs. Public/Private Partnerships – Part 1

Address by Tom DeWeese Freedom 21 National Conference - Dallas, Texas PART 1 "Freedom." We use that word a lot. Do we all really know what that word means? It’s used in so many different ways. Do we understand how it is attained? Most importantly, do we understand how it is used by some to actually take freedom away? Why do some who profess to advocate freedom actually accept policies, which diminish freedom and call it "restoring the Republic?" Simply put, freedom is the ability to act without hindrance or restraint. Freedom is owning your life, your actions, your labor. We say we support the "principles" of freedom. But what are those principles and where did they come from? First of all, we must understand principles are not legislated or invented. Principles are discovered. Someone doesn’t just come up with an idea and start to sell it as a principle ...

DAWN OF THE ERA OF COMMON-ISM

May 22, 2007 By Tom DeWeese The lines used to be so clear. On one side were free markets, free societies and openly elected representative governments, normally defined as democracy. On the other, was the force of totalitarianism choking off individual initiative, private ownership of property, cynically providing a ballot box with but one choice, normally defined as Communism. In the end, the "Evil Empire" disintegrated under the weight of its own ignorance of human nature. Or did it? Conservatives hailed the victory, dispatching Communism to the "ash-heap of history." Many Conservative leaders have put forth the idea that we are living in a "Conservative era," using as proof the Republican takeover of Congress and the worldwide movement toward democracy and free trade. The demise of Communism, some say, now allows a spirit of cooperation among nations that will bring on the benefits of worldwide prosperity and a universal increase ...

Progress in the fight to stop the NAU and NAFTA Highway

May 7, 2007 By Tom DeWeese A tiny but determined band of organizations and individuals are standing up to Goliath and are beginning to see his knees wobble. Goliath is the globalist-inspired Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) – better known as the North American Union (NAU) and the Trans Texas Corridor (TCC) – also know as the NAFTA Highway. To date a dozen states have introduced resolutions to oppose the SPP and the NAU. Some states have also included language to oppose creation of a new currency called the Amero. Also opposed in most of the resolutions is the super highway (TCC) to run from Laredo, Texas all the way to Kansas City and more. Specifically, all of the resolutions are reacting to a wide range of concepts and structures dealing with the integration of North America into one "harmonized" union. The states where resolutions have been introduced include Arizona, ...

The North American Union is Really a Debate Over Political Ideology

March 21, 2007 By Tom DeWeese If you believe there should be no borders marking a specific entity called the United States of America, then a North American Union will not concern you. If you believe nationalism, meaning love and pride of country, is a bad thing, then a North American Union will not concern you. If you believe government control of the market, of health care, and of energy policy is a positive force, then a North American Union will not concern you. If you believe anyone should be allowed to enter our nation, even illegally, obtain work, taxpayer-paid social programs, and owe no allegiance to the U.S., then a North American Union will not concern you. On the other hand, if you believe the United States is the most unique nation on Earth with a government designed to protect your natural liberties, an economic system unlike any other ...

Why We Need the “We the People” Act (H.R. 300)

March 16, 2007 The United States of America was created to be a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy. A Constitutionally limited republic is restricted to the protection of individual rights. As outlined in our Constitution, the role of the federal government is strictly controlled in well-defined responsibilities. According to the 10th Amendment, all other powers and responsibilities are assigned to the 50 individual, sovereign States, which also are Republican governments. A democracy is ruled by a majority of votes. Under such a system, no rights may be guaranteed since a simple majority can overturn them. The result of a democracy is a form of collectivism, which denies individual rights. Today, judges in federal courts are handing down decisions that many times over turn specific State laws that should be protected by the 10th Amendment. The assault on our Republican form of government by the use of such judicial powers affects ...

Is the Security and Prosperity Partnership the beginning of a North American Union?

Address By Tom DeWeese February 3, 2007 Is our government working quietly to create the equivalent of a North American Union – much on the lines of the European Union? Some charge that such a Union will eventually override our Constitutional government, our judicial system, our economic system and even our currency, which, some speculate, will be replaced by something called the Amero. Can it be possible? Others say such charges are just another trumped up conspiracy theory of a lunatic fringe. I can’t possibly address every issue and describe the complete history of the situation in our short time together, but I can go over the highlights and give you an idea as to why many of us are greatly concerned and in fact believe we are entering the fight of our lives. Here’s a quick run down. On March 23, 2005 President Bush met with Mexican President Vicente ...

IS ENGLAND A “DEAD LOSS?”

December 6, 2006 By Tom DeWeese The proposition I debated before the Cambridge Union was “This House believes the United Nations is a dead loss.” However, during my travels around the UK, I came to ask myself another question: “Is England a dead loss?” Consider the following items reported in the British news media during my stay in the country.’ ITEM: Life Style Tax Perhaps you are familiar with government subsidized housing. People are charged different amounts for the same home, based on their ability to pay. In England, the practice is about to take a dramatic turn, effecting not just subsidized housing – but private homes, too. Families who live in desirable areas face massive increases in local taxes under a “Big Brother” scheme. Taxes will now be rated based on the following criteria (these are a few of the 287 factors to be considered); · How many neighbors ...

The Global Warming Inquisition and the Suppression of “Skeptic” Heresy

November 14, 2006 By Tom DeWeese Imagine living in a world where no one is allowed to think independent thoughts or take independent actions. Only pre-approved human response would be acceptable. To break the rule and engage in forbidden thought would result in terrible retribution, perhaps leading literally to ones destruction. That’s the kind of world apparently desired by the global warming Chicken Littles. It seems they are prepared to do anything to achieve it. Case in point is an outrageous letter to ExxonMobil Chairman Rex Tillerson on October 27, 2006. The letter was sent by two United States Senators, Olympia Snowe (R-MA), and Jay Rockefeller (D-WV). The letter derides Exxon for helping to fund global warming “deniers,” (a term the global warming crowd is using more and more these days to try to draw a parallel with those who deny the Holocaust). Said the letter, “We are convinced that ...

Republicans Deserved to Lose Now the Battle for Freedom Can Be Renewed

November 13, 2006 By Tom DeWeese The recriminations are flying. Why did the Republicans lose so badly? Who’s at fault? What will it mean in the battle for freedom? The answer to the first two questions is pretty easy. Republicans lost because they acted like Democrats. They betrayed their base of supporters and thought they could get away with it. It’s that simple. The loss wasn’t about scandals. Not About Jack Abramoff. Not about Congressman Mark Foley. And there certainly hasn’t been a shift toward Democrat policy. The Republican base left the party because it became the biggest spending government in U.S. history. It became the government most invasive of our private lives in U.S. history. And the Republicans became the poorest defenders of our national sovereignty and independence in U.S. history. That’s why they lost. It’s the reason why they were able to toss out the Democrats twelve years ...

RITALIN IS POISON

September 26, 2006 By Tom DeWeese Why is America suddenly experiencing an explosion of new mental diseases and disorders never heard of thirty years ago? Why are children seemingly out of control, refusing to listen to parents and teachers, even driven to violence? Here are two possible reasons to consider. First, it is apparent the psychology industry isn’t opposed to simply making up diseases and disorders if there is money to be made. Second, some research is suggesting that many of the growing diseases and disorders could actually be side effects of the drugs psychologists are pouring into children to “cure” their made-up diseases. Does that sound harsh or far-fetched? Consider these facts. Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are complete frauds. There is no scientific evidence whatsoever to prove either exists. Yet, today, almost seven million children have been diagnosed as being ADD or ADHD ...

The Bush Administration’s Efforts to Cover Up the North American Union Myths, Facts — Truth

September 20, 2006 By Tom DeWeese "Conspiracy theories." "Fringe nuts." "Lies." "Myths." These are the words being used by officials of the Bush Administration and others to brand those who have reported on the activities of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP), currently operating out of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Opponents have charged the SPP will result in the establishment of a North American Union, much on the same lines as the European Union. In response to its critics, the SPP has added a "SPP Myths Vs Facts" section to its website at www.SPP.gov. According to the "Myths Vs Facts" document the SPP is simply a "dialog" among the three countries to "enhance prosperity." It goes on to say the SPP is not an agreement, nor is it a treaty. It says "no agreement was ever signed." The truth is, on March 23, 2005, President Bush ...
