In this collection of anecdotes from both contemporary and historic times, author Eric Bolling weaves a brilliant tale of how the Swamp came to be along with how it's gotten worse with each passing year since the Framers' days.

Bolling investigates the historical review and compares it to the contemporary

By a Razor’s Edge… 4th of July Remembrance

Current Affairs, History, Presidential
On this special 4th of July, we are afford an opportunity to give much gratitude to our fellow Americans who stood up against tyranny this last Election Day and faced the most viciously corrupt machine we've seen in many decades. We all heard about the nebulous Clinton Machine and for many, even as we cheered on Donald Trump, said "The Fix Is In." Well, that fix wasn't as permanent as many believed. Our rage against the machine liberated us from said machine and we moved passed it - even to the Left's chagrin (and terminal temper tantrums). They couldn't dissuade us with their nonsensical balderdash and bullish tactem. In fact, their irreverence only fueled our resolve to bring this whole sham to a crashing halt. I can admit this now, friends, I was more than a tad worried this t...

As most of you know, yesterday was a big moment for the Supreme Court and the Trump Administration with much of the travel ban being reinstated but the move meant much more to Americans. Throughout the years, our laws and Constitution have been victimized by unelected people within our government, but none so lethal as those sitting on the bench with lifetime appointments. For decades, jurists have run rough shod over our governance by imposing rulings like what just happened in the 9th and 4th district; Liberals have used this system to impose laws and social mores we've never voted for nor would if it were put to the public for a vote. Judicial activism has provided Liberals an avenue to ram ridiculous fodder on the America people like bathroom debates and other such nonsense for w...
Should Trump Follow Jefferson’s Lead?

Should Trump Follow Jefferson’s Lead?

Current Affairs, Legal, Legislature
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich raised a very interesting solution to the 9th Circuit issue where judges feel they yield more power than President Trump. He proffers the Trump Administration to revisit Thomas Jefferson's Judiciary Act (1802) solution by abolishing the 9th altogether. In the video below, Gingrich discusses the Judiciary Act of 1802 and why it would be a good course for President Trump to explore. It is obvious some corrective action needs to be taken and it's no secret Speaker Paul Ryan, a most uninformed politician on the Hill, would be impotent should any impeachment process be introduced to the House. Learn your history... Impeachment vs. Abolishment! NEWT: If we're serious about defeating the activist judges on the Ninth Circuit, don't impeach them —

HISTORIC OBSERVATION: The REAL Problem with Donald Trump!

Founding Fathers, History, Issues, Media, Presidential, Trump News
Back when the Framers designed our governance, there was one thing they all tried to avoid -- instating a system like the one they just won independence. A dictatorship, monarchy -- single rulership -- bourgeois ruling class. As many pre-Common Core folks know, George Washington was our first 'reluctant' president. He didn't want to be a president or leader because he didn't want it to morph into a ruling class over common people. He had a right mind to believe this as we've seen since the Roosevelts. The original idea was states would retain their sovereignty and their rights were paramount. The original 13 agreed to unite (yes, UNITE) in a group to become THE United States of America. This was not meant to be commoners verses ruling class as many Liberals are trying so hard to achi...

By Guest Writer Adam Gingrich Pennsylvania Political Consultant Twitter Handle: @DissingerToupee Let's face it, the Electoral College gets treated like a snowblower in North Carolina: you hope it works when you need it, but you usually forget about it entirely for years at a time. Let's try to remember this notion of how we elect our presidents didn't crop up in the later days of our democracy, but rather in its infancy. A look back at Hamilton's Constitutional Convention era correspondence to Jefferson tell us all the reasoning behind the establishment of the Electoral College. It's not based on some surreptitious and oligarchical motivations to deprive our citizens of the right to elect our presidents. Instead, it was a mechanism to protect the interests of the minority's rights,...

I am an American. I am an American rapidly losing faith. It all happened in three short weeks. Americans were exposed to the ugly factory creation of sausage, glimpsing the utter decadence and tone deaf carnality of our political gut processing. The "elites" who make and dispense law were outed as political birds of prey, and we, all of us, from blue collar worker to hapless office cog were the vultures breakfast lunch and dinner. The politicians fiddled and the People burned. Sure, we got fired up by Bernie, and Trump, as their populist message resonated with the millions of us who "suspected." Americans are not perfect. I am a slave to sweets, addicted to social media, and am guilty of indulging in my fair share of vices. But I am not a slave of the Government,or so I believe...

History 101: 1942 – It Wasn’t Just About WWII

History, Issues
1942 is a pivotal year in our Constitution's history... as it was  the year when the Supreme Court of the United States overstepped the Constitution to begin the dismantling our individual rights and Federalize Americans' lives. The case was Wickard v. Filburn. Not many people hear too much about it as it lacks the sensationalism as Roe v. Wade or Brown v. the Board of Education. However, it's impact on our country and us is too staggering to ignore. As explained in Mark Levin's, Liberty & Tyranny, the basic premise in this case was the SCOTUS ruled that a farmer growing wheat on his own land and for his own use was still subject to federal production limits, even though none of his wheat was sold to any other people or crossed state lines. The reasoning was "withholding h

By Thornton Crowe As published on Salisbury News On Independence Day weekend, I thought about what this holiday's remembrance is really all about and why it's meaning now is more pertinent than ever before in most our lives. For those who embrace this election's importance, this is a somber holiday - not just an excuse for a three-day weekend. Our founding fathers had great ideas. They were educated men consisting of landowners, lawyers, inventors, philosophers and business owners, who carefully thought out the way to govern the new nation. They had a combined focus and goal to eradicated themselves from the Crown and launch a most extraordinary experiment. The United States of America. The two main ideas became apparent in their planning. A) To guarantee inalienable rights ...

By Thornton Crowe A few weeks back, I published a commentary discussing Jim Crow and Hillary Clinton's misuse of the term when speaking to her rallies about states wanting to implement Voter ID during elections. While obviously, she was using a sore spot in America's history to her own end by duplicitous means, her misuse can hardly take away the real Jim Crow being exercised by the Republican National Committee's state chapters such as Colorado, Indiana and Wyoming.  This is designed to enforce the will of the establishment rather than the will of the people. Last Saturday, 1.1 Million voters were completely cut out of the primary process through a rule created in August 2015 after Trump's popularity overcame the typical punchline and into a realm of reality. The RNC, headed by Rei

GOP Candidate Most Likely Picked By Founding Fathers

Election News, History, Trump News
In the GOP primary election cycle, we have had a variety of candidates whom all have their positives and negatives. Their stances on issues vary as wildly as their personalities. However, when you study Colonial and Presidential history, you learn so much about the founding fathers of this country. Interestingly enough, Donald J. Trump is very much like those dead white guys as Common Core creators like to call them. First, he is a regular guy (albeit a Billionaire) whom has a desire to make this country great (again) and is dedicated to making the changes to push that aim forward. He didn't have to run for president and take the enormous public razzing. He's rich beyond any of our imaginations, which means, if he didn't love America, he could move anywhere in the world and live a wonde...
