MAY BE GOOD NEWS in the WASHINGTON POST: The SECRET TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP is in trouble because LIBERALS oppose it! TEA PARTY and CONSTITUTIONALISTS do too!

Here is a fascinating article (in the WashPo of all places!) about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the secret trade agreement that has been reported to allow foreign multinational corporations to evade US law and be subject to unaccountable mediation/arbitration panels outside the US court system!  It is also a sovereignty killer. The Post says the Obama […]

Reader Submitted: Many good patriots have given a Convention of the States (COS) a thumbs up, trusting the promoters without further consideration. But, more study results in serious concerns.

Why the Supreme Court ObamaCare Ruling is Proper

Like everyone else on the right, I detest this ruling and truly hoped that it had gone the other way. But in the back of my mind, when the government made the argument that the mandate was a tax, I thought that was something worth worrying about. Of course, the argument during the legislative process […]
