S.16 AUDIT THE FED


6 September 2018

The fight over my Audit the Fed bill is set to really heat up in Washington, D.C. — if you and I can turn up the heat!
The last time Audit the Fed was voted on in the U.S. Senate before the 2016 elections, it came just six votes shy of overcoming a filibuster and passing.
With the November elections just around the corner there’s never been a better time to put the Federal Reserve’s most vulnerable apologists on record.
We can beat them. We can pass Audit the Fed. But only with your action today.
So please sign your petition below and make your most generous contribution of $250, $100, $50, $35 or $15 to help us ramp up the pressure in Washington, D.C. to finally pass Audit the Fed!
As the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, I urge you to bring the Audit the Fed Bill (S. 16) to the floor for a public, roll-call vote IMMEDIATELY.

Declaration Of Internet Freedom


Petition: Declaration of Internet Freedom | 23 August 2018


The marriage of “Big Tech” and Big Government threatens the very foundation of our Republic.


Internet Giants like Facebook, Twitter, Google, and others are now wading deep into the business of censoring speech to carry out the bidding of government actors.


That’s why I’m counting on concerned men and women like you to TAKE a STAND and sign your Declaration of Internet Freedom right away!


We must act now to defend Internet Freedom before it’s too late.


For Liberty,

Defend Internet Freedom Directive


Petition: Internet Freedom Directive | 14 August 2018


Fear of Russian interference in our election is fanning the flames of a new push for a massive government takeover of the Internet. 


Proposals leaked from Senator Mark Warner’s office include everything from mandating location tracking on your social media accounts, mandating identity verification for individual users, requiring companies to label “bots” or face penalties for their inaction, and expanding so-called “disclosure” requirements for online political speech, along with much, much more. 


That’s why I’m counting on you to help me gather 50,000-signed INTERNET FREEDOM DIRECTIVES by August 31 to put Congress on notice. 


So please sign Campaign for Liberty’s INTERNET FREEDOM DIRECTIVE, and agree to your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, or even $10 or $25 TODAY! 

For Liberty,

America’s Burgeoning Civil War

Published By: Chuck Baldwin | Thursday 9 August, 2018 

Make no mistake about it: America is already engaged in its second civil war. The decades-old left-right, conservative-liberal, Democrat-Republican paradigm that had (before Donald Trump’s election) almost evaporated is back—with a vengeance.  In fact, it has turned into a full-fledged war. And it doesn’t matter to a tinker’s dam which side wins this war: Constitutional government and the Natural rights of man are the losers.


Take your pick. Maxine Waters or Donald Trump, Sean Hannity or Chris Matthews: Both sides are destroying the principles of federalism, constitutionalism and Natural Law. For all intents and purposes these principles are already dead. The American experiment in republicanism is over. From now on it’s the survival of the strongest. Might makes right. Logic, reason and sensible debate are buried in the dustbin of history. America has entered the next Dark Ages. And, sadly, there are hardly any Reformation preachers left in America to lead the nation into the light of liberty.
By removing Alex Jones, Ron Paul’s Institute For Peace And Prosperity executive director Daniel McAdams and Antiwar.com editorial director Scott Horton from their outlets, Silicon Valley—complete with its poster establishments Facebook, Youtube, Spotify, etc.—have proven themselves to be nothing but Naziesque censors hell-bent on destroying public dissent. As Ron Paul rightly noted, “In an empire of lies the truth is treason.”  
And lest conservatives whine about being the big, bad victims in this discussion, the Trumpites are as bad as the Clintonites. Neither group cares a flip about the Constitution, Bill of Rights or Natural Law. All either side wants is the POWER to have things done their way—freedom and liberty be damned.
A recent survey has discovered that nearly half of Republicans want to give President Trump the power to shut down whatever media outlets he chooses. According to The Daily Beast:
Freedom of the press may be guaranteed in the Constitution. But a plurality of Republicans want to give President Trump the authority to close down certain news outlets, according to a new public opinion survey conducted by Ipsos and provided exclusively to The Daily Beast.
The findings present a sobering picture for the fourth estate, with respondents showing diminished trust in the media and increased support for punitive measures against its members. They also illustrate the extent to which Trump’s anti-press drumbeat has shaped public opinion about the role the media plays in covering his administration.
All told, 43 percent of self-identified Republicans said that they believed “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” Only 36 percent disagreed with that statement.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is getting ugly FAST. And I think that is exactly what the power elite had in mind when they handed the victory to Donald Trump in 2016. They knew Trump would incite a civil war; in fact, they intended that Trump would incite a civil war.
This is not to put all of the blame on Trump. Not at all. The left is just as culpable. Both sides are playing the game (wittingly or unwittingly) as scripted by the gamemakers. Donald Trump’s rhetoric is as vitriolic as Maxine Waters’. And Maxine Waters’ rhetoric is as vitriolic as Donald Trump’s. Neither side knows how to reason. Neither side knows even a smidgen about the Constitution or Natural Law, much less decency and decorum. We are watching junkyard dogs have at each other. The problem is, both packs of dogs are chewing up the bones of liberty and constitutional government in the process.
Let me tell you folks straight out: Donald Trump is as much a usurper of constitutional government as Maxine Waters. The only difference is the brand of tyranny that you prefer.
Both Trump and Waters act like there are only two sides to this argument. They act like the whole country is divided between the fascists of the right and the socialists of the left. Not true! There are millions of Americans from a variety of backgrounds, theologies and philosophies that are sick and tired of BOTH SIDES. Count me as one of them.
It doesn’t matter that everyone agrees with me (or you). What matters is that everyone respects the Constitution, Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence and God’s Natural Law and is willing to grant to others the same Natural and civil rights as we assume for ourselves. Such a perspective is totally lost on both Donald Trump and Maxine Waters (and their ilk). And the result is a burgeoning civil war.
I’m telling you, any civil war taking shape in this country today is a net loss for freedom, no matter which side should prevail. I want no part of either side. In my mind, these two factions are equally evil.
No matter who would have won the election in 2016, the result would have been the same. Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were groomed to take America into a civil war. Make no mistake about it: The gamemakers who control both Trump and Clinton couldn’t care less about the left-right feud taking place on Main Street today. It is the Constitution, Bill of Rights and God’s Natural Law that are targeted for destruction. And neither Donald Trump nor Maxine Waters seem to have any regard, respect or reverence for any of those sacred principles.
Both gun owners and members of the black community have justifiable complaints. The Second Amendment has been in the crosshairs of would-be tyrants for years. And so has the Fourth Amendment in predominantly minority communities. The left is wrong to dismiss the attacks on the Second Amendment liberties of gun owners, and the right is wrong to dismiss the attacks on the Fourth Amendment liberties of blacks and other minorities. I’m telling you both sides have equal justification for complaint. “Right-wingers” are justified in complaining about the tyrannical tendencies of the FBI, ATF and BLM, and “left-wingers” are justified in complaining about the tyrannical tendencies of local police departments and sheriff’s offices.
Federal police agencies have been targeting “right-wing” groups for decades—without justification. This targeting has been done solely on the basis of political bias and propaganda from left-wing hate groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). In truth, the FBI and SPLC have been political bed partners for almost forever. And conservative ranchers, gun owners, business owners, etc., have every right in the world to be incensed about it.
By the same token, people within the black community have every right to be angry at the way they have been abused and misused by local police agencies and prosecutors’ offices. On this subject, I totally support the efforts of Rand Paul and Bernie Sanders to overhaul the bail system in America’s criminal justice system. Upwards of 70% of people behind bars are there without being convicted of a crime. They are mostly poor people (of which a majority are black) who cannot afford bail. And so they sit behind bars awaiting trial while the wealthy walk the streets free as a bird for the same or even more serious offenses. The only difference is one person has money and the other one doesn’t. That’s NOT justice. Don’t tell me we need bigger jails. All that does is feed the Police State and further tax the taxpayers. What we need is more justice in the justice system. The bail system is a dinosaur that needs to be fossilized.
So far this year, local police departments and sheriff’s offices have killed more than 700 people. And about 24% of these victims were not even armed. Furthermore, about 61% of these victims were minorities. One cannot read the news on any given day without reading the stories of policemen killing people (mostly minorities) under extremely questionable circumstances. And almost never are these murderous policemen held accountable or brought to justice for their crimes. Quite frankly, I am tired of hearing so-called patriots talk about the “murder” of Lavoy Finicum while completely ignoring the murders of dozens, if not scores, of young black men every year by policemen all over America. The double standard is sickening!
This country is coming apart at the seams. And both Donald Trump and Maxine Waters (and their toadies) are equally culpable. The dichotomy is ubiquitous. Except the fact that the one thing that both liberals and conservatives and Republicans and Democrats come together on is WAR. (Maxine Waters, to her credit, has consistently voted against America’s unconstitutional wars.)
Mark my words: Donald Trump is in the process of taking America into war against Iran and Syria in the same way that G.W. Bush took America into war against Iraq and Afghanistan. (Oh, that’s right. Dual U.S.-Israeli citizen John Bolton is at the helm spearheading these wars in Trump’s administration just as he was in Bush’s administration, isn’t he? What a coincidence!) And Israel will be the match that Trump and Bolton will use to ignite these wars (in other words, more wars for Israel). And when Trump launches these wars, the vast majority of both Republicans and Democrats in Congress will support them. Watch and see.
The American people are being played, and the Constitution is being pulverized—by both sides of this political charade. And the growing civil war in this country has nothing to do with the principles of liberty or constitutional government and everything to do with globalist warmongers manipulating the left-right paradigm to destroy whatever vestiges of America’s Washington and Jeffersonian principles that yet remain.
P.S. I, again, urge readers to obtain the blockbuster new book by Christopher Bollyn entitled The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East.
While Trump’s Republicans and Maxine Waters’ Democrats are playing this phony left-right game at home, both sides are right now planning to take America into its next war abroad. Bollyn’s new War On Terror book is the one book that dares to tell the truth about who is behind America’s perpetual “War on Terror” and why. This is the one book you need to read in 2018.
We are being played, folks, and Bollyn’s book reveals who the puppet masters are. I strongly urge readers to get Christopher Bollyn’s blockbuster new book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East. Order it here:

Stop The U.N. Gun Ban


25 July 2018

Petition: Stop U.N. Gun Ban
Friend, 
Your immediate action is needed.
The United Nations is trying to force America to abolish our Second Amendment rights.
This is the moment we’ve been waiting for, Friend.
Worst of all, recent reports indicate that our own country’s delegates at the U.N. “have agreed to begin developing domestic legal frameworks that will provide for the ‘proper management of small arms and light weapons stockpiles.’ ”
President Trump needs to know what these U.N. globalists are doing behind America’s back and put an end to this blasphemous agreement NOW.
We need President Trump to take action to stop the United Nations from controlling our country’s constitutional rights.
And we need to encourage President Trump to “unsign” the U.N. gun control treaty that Barack Obama’s administration signed in 2013.
If that Arms Trade Treaty is not repealed by President Trump, then the Senate can ratify it at any time.
Friend, we need to take action ourselves to be sure the President knows what the United Nations is up to so he can put an end to this sovereignty-killer before it’s too late.
Thank you,
Tim Macy
Chairman, Gun Owners of America

NO U.N. GUN BAN


28 July 2018 

Petition: No U.N. Gun Ban

Dear Patriot,

The greatest threat to our Second Amendment rights isn’t from statists in Washington, D.C.

And it’s not from your state legislature either.

It’s from the globalists meeting in New York City at the United Nations. 

If you believe in the individual right to keep and bear arms guaranteed by our Second Amendment, you ought to be concerned with what’s happening at the United Nations.

You may not have heard of it, but the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry signed the U.S. onto in 2013 poses the greatest single threat to our Second Amendment rights today. 

While the Senate has never ratified the Treaty, pro-Treaty activists are already hard at work using the Treaty’s standards to mold U.S. policymaking in its image. 

At its heart, this Treaty is about subverting Americans’ Second Amendment rights -- the last bastion of defense against tyranny our country still has

And anti-gun United Nations officials will stop at nothing to see our Second Amendment overturned. 

But there’s still time to halt to this International anti-gun assault, and that’s why I’m writing you today. 

If President Trump were to “unsign” the U.S. from the Treaty, clearly indicating the U.S. will never ratify it, the whole scheme would begin to unravel.  

And it would also send a clear signal to other nations that the U.S. will NEVER allow the United Nations to undermine our right to keep and bear arms.

Make no mistake, the U.N. is a threat to us.  Everybody should be alert to this and realize this is not just fun and games or a “discussion club” we’re dealing with.

That’s why I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action today.  Won’t you please sign your “NO U.N. GUN BAN” petition to President Donald Trump right away? 

As you’ll see, this petition simply calls on President Trump to “unsign” the U.S. from the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty.

I’m afraid your action today is needed now more than ever. 

President Trump’s comments after the tragic Parkland, Florida murders shows that anti-gun advisors may have already infiltrated his administration

Those voices will advise President Trump “not to rock the boat,” while claiming the Treaty won’t impact law-abiding American citizens. 

That’s just not so.  

For more than 20 years the United Nations has waged a campaign to undermine Second Amendment rights in America

Former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan had called on members of the Security Council to address the “easy availability” of small arms and light weapons -- by which he meant all privately-owned firearms.  

In response, the Security Council released a report calling for a comprehensive program of worldwide gun control, which admonished the U.S. and praised the restrictive gun laws of Communist China and France!

All of those past efforts culminated in the ATT.  And I’m afraid if the U.S. doesn’t withdraw from it quickly, it will empower the U.N.’s next anti-gun scheme already being developed -- so-called “International Small Arms Control Standards” (ISACS), which would involve domestic firearm regulation.

That’s why I’m counting on your action today to put a stop to their efforts to overturn the Second Amendment through International Law.

It’s no surprise that U.N. officials despise what they view as our “gun culture.” 

After all, these are the people who placed a huge anti-gun statue on American soil at the U.N. headquarters in New York.  The statue depicts a pistol with the barrel tied into a knot -- a not-too-subtle shot aimed squarely at the U.S.

U.N. officials believe in global government, and armed people could stand in the way of their goals.  

Gun rights advocates must understand that the forces behind globalism are hostile toward our Constitution and national sovereignty in general.

The U.N. claims to serve human freedom and dignity, but gun control often serves as a gateway to tyranny.

Tyrants from Hitler to Mao to Stalin have sought to disarm their own citizens, for the simple reason that unarmed people are easier to control.  

Our Founders -- having just expelled the British army -- knew the right to keep and bear arms serves as the guardian of every other right.  

This is the principle so often ignored by both sides in the gun control debate.  Only armed citizens can resist tyrannical government!

Unfortunately, if you and I don’t act quickly, that right may be severely diminished by the anti-gun globalists at the United Nations. 

I’ve authorized Campaign for Liberty to begin laying the groundwork for a grassroots mobilization campaign to convince President Trump to “unsign” the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty.  

The first step will be to gather 100,000 petitions just like this one from concerned patriots like you across the country through U.S. mail, email, and social media.  

But even getting this campaign off the ground isn’t going to be cheap, or easy.  

So after you’ve signed your “NO U.N. GUN BAN” petition to President Trump, won’t you please make your most generous contribution of $300? 

I know I’ve asked a lot from Campaign for Liberty’s members and supporters lately.  

But your generous support is crucial to winning this fight, which I believe is necessary to defend our Second Amendment rights and preserve American freedom. 

Of course, if $300 is just too much, please consider $200 or even $100

Your action and generosity will allow Campaign for Liberty to turn up the heat on President Trump to “unsign” the Arms Trade Treaty and block the U.N. Gun Ban. 

Please sign your petition and make your most generous contribution right away!

For Liberty,

Ron Paul

H.R. 899 Terminate The Department of Education

12 July 2018 

Petition: H.R. 899 Terminate The Department of Education
Bill: H.R. 899

Liberty-Pac - Your signed petition, calls, and faxes to your Representative and Senators truly make a difference. 

Our goal is to collect 30,000 signed petitions just like yours.  But if I ever expect to reach that goal, we must count on the support of patriots like you.

"Federal control of education has led to the decline of education in our country as DC-based politicians and bureaucrats impose a “one-size-fits all” model on our schools. 

Powerful teachers unions are on their heals after the Janus decision, throwing open the door to pass Representative Thomas Massie's H.R. 899 to shut down the federal Department of Education. 

Campaign for Liberty is doing all we can to make the most of this opportunity. 

But we need your help

So please sign your petition RIGHT now to End Fed Ed

Then, give your most generous contribution today to help Campaign for Liberty launch a fight against Big Government education."


For Liberty,

Ron Paul

America Has Totally Forgotten History


Published By: Chuck Baldwin | Thursday June 28, 2018
The Spanish-American philosopher Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruiz de Santayana y Borrás (known in English as simply George Santayana) famously said in his book The Life Of Reason, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
For all intents and purposes, America is in the process of fulfilling Santayana’s proverb. If America’s founders were to rise from the grave and look at the country they sacrificed so much to create, they would think they were looking at King George’s England instead of the free and independent republic they birthed.
The only references to America’s past nowadays seem to be those that either condemn our Founding Fathers or glorify Abraham Lincoln. That is pretty much the sum total of what most Americans (including conservatives and Christians) are taught about their history. It is no hyperbole to say that virtually the entire country (with very few exceptions) has thoroughly and completely lost touch with its history. And the consequences of this travesty are everywhere.
For the most part, real American history is not taught in America’s grammar schools, middle schools, high schools, colleges or universities. Neither is it taught in America’s churches, Bible colleges or seminaries. Most Americans will graduate from high school, college and post-graduate school and never learn their own history. Most Christians will go through Sunday School, Christian grade school, high school and college and never learn their own history. Ditto for most private and parochial schools and colleges. Most Americans will live their entire lives and die at a ripe old age having never learned their own history. And even worse: most of them seem to have little desire to learn it. They seem very content to spend untold numbers of hours listening to radio and television talk shows and Internet podcasts rather than studying their own history for themselves.
The only thing most “conservatives” and Christians know is the Republican versus Democrat, conservative versus liberal and “right” versus “left” paradigm. (The same is true for liberals, of course.) That’s it! I mean, THAT’S IT! It’s Sean Hannity or Rachel Maddow, FOX News or CNN and Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. That’s it! I mean, THAT’S IT!
Face it, folks: Donald Trump doesn’t know The Federalist Papers from The Cat in the Hat. His constitutional IQ is about 30—and that’s probably being generous. The same goes for the vast majority of our congressmen and senators—from either party—in Washington, D.C. And the biggest problem is that the people who keep electing and reelecting these constitutional morons to the highest political offices in the country don’t even recognize that it’s a problem.
With Independence Day coming up, I am again reminded of the root cause of America’s woes: vast ignorance of the constitutional, historical and Natural Law principles that birthed this country. So, at the risk of sounding self-serving, I am going to strongly urge readers to become familiar with the following literary works.
The first book every serious student of American history needs to read is THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS. This is the finest compilation of America’s great historical documents in ONE VOLUME in print. These documents contain the actual words of America’s founders, words which explain and expound the laws and principles of liberty, words that came from the hearts and minds of the men who brought the greatest free nation on earth into existence. These documents form the cornerstone of our nation’s liberties. One cannot possibly understand the significance of Independence Day and be ignorant of these documents at the same time.
This fantastic collection of America’s greatest documents is only available here—and we only print twice a year (for Independence Day and Christmas)—and this special summer printing will only last for another week or so. Therefore, to receive a copy of THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS, you need to order NOW.
Order THE FREEDOM DOCUMENTS here:
The second book I urge readers to obtain is Lex, Rex, Or The Law And The Prince by Samuel Rutherford. Originally published in 1644 by Scottish Presbyterian Minister Reverend Samuel Rutherford, this is a copy of the 1843 printing. Lex, Rex defends the rule of law and the lawfulness of defensive wars and advocates limited government and constitutionalism in politics. This book contains masterful, in-depth research. It is one of the most scholarly works on liberty ever written.
Order Lex, Rex here:
The third book I urge readers to get is Second Treatise Of Government by John Locke.
John Locke was the Father of America's Founding Fathers. Thomas Jefferson borrowed heavily from Locke's Second Treatise when he penned the Declaration of Independence. This is the first book one should read to learn the liberty principles of Natural Law.
Order John Locke’s Second Treatise Of Government here:
And since modern America (including Christians and conservatives) have an ongoing idolatrous love affair with Abraham Lincoln—a love affair that has thoroughly tainted and twisted their understanding of liberty and constitutional government—I urge readers to get the bookThe Real Lincoln by Thomas DiLorenzo.
Through extensive research and meticulous documentation, DiLorenzo portrays the sixteenth president as a man who devoted his political career to revolutionizing the American form of government from one that was very limited in scope and highly decentralized—as the Founding Fathers intended—to a highly centralized, activist state. Standing in his way, however, was the South with its independent states, its resistance to the national government and its reliance on unfettered free trade. To accomplish his goals, Lincoln subverted the Constitution, trampled states' rights and launched a devastating Civil War, whose wounds haunt us still. According to this provocative book, 600,000 American soldiers did not die for the honorable cause of ending slavery but for the dubious agenda of sacrificing the independence of the states to the supremacy of the federal government, which has been tightening its vise grip on our republic to this very day. This book is MUST-READING.
To order Thomas DiLorenzo’s book The Real Lincoln, go here:
The last book I am going to recommend in this column is a modern book (written just last year) that needs to be read by EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN. If it was read and taken to heart by enough people, this book could literally change the course of history and save the American republic. The book is entitled The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East by Christopher Bollyn.
From the book's back cover:
The government and media have misled us about 9/11 in order to compel public opinion to support the War on Terror.
Why have we gone along with it? Do we accept endless war as normal? Are we numb to the suffering caused by our military interventions?
No. We have simply been propagandized into submission. We have been deceived into thinking that the War on Terror is a good thing, a valiant struggle against terrorists who intend to attack us as we were on 9/11.
Behind the War on Terror is a strategic plan crafted decades in advance to redraw the map of the Middle East. 9/11 was a false-flag operation blamed on Muslims in order to start the military operations for that strategic plan. Recognizing the origin of the plan is crucial to understanding the deception that has changed our world.
If you don’t read any other book (besides the Bible) this year, read Christopher Bollyn’s The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East. Order it here:
America is repeating the mistakes of so many nations before it and repudiating its own founding principles. This is happening because the vast majority of the American people have lost touch with their own national history and heritage.
I dare say that if one were to read the five books I recommend in this column, he or she would be far more educated in the historic liberty principles upon which America was founded than the vast majority of college graduates, TV talking heads, radio talk show hosts, newscasters, university professors, congressmen, senators and pastors in this country.
There are many more excellent resources, of course. But unless the American people start turning off their radios and televisions long enough to do some serious independent study into the great principles of liberty and constitutionalism, they will be totally ineffective in helping to restore America to its former glory.
Donald Trump will not save America; but George Washington could.
