June 30, 2019 - America’s governance problems are a common topic among Americans. But each Fourth of July brings that subject to the fore. Unfortunately, however, much of the discussion and many asserted “solutions” derive from a mistaken approach to government. That is why Independence Day is an excellent time to carefully consider Frédéric Bastiat’s 1848 essay, Government, one of the most insightful critiques ever given for understanding the problems that beset governance.

June 28, 2019 - July 4 should be a day of mourning. The rights our ancestors fought for have been taken away.

Over the course of my lifetime there has been a fundamental shift in the attitude of the judiciary toward constitutional rights. I remember when guarding against any diminishing of constitutional rights was considered more important than convicting another criminal. There were cases in which the evidence needed in order to convict a person could not be collected, or used if collected, because it violated constitutional rights. There are many instances of criminals walking free because terrorist pig thug cops, prosecutors, and trials violated their rights. Much of the unthinking public would be enraged because judges let a criminal off. The public was unable to understand that the judges were protecting their rights as well as the criminal’s.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (PNN) - June 10, 2019 - New Zealand politicians who rushed to enact nationwide gun confiscation following the Christchurch mosque massacres are befuddled by the lack of enthusiasm from citizens who have yet to comply with the new gun confiscation law. The so-called “gun reform” was expected to rid the vast New Zealand countryside of most semi-automatic firearms, magazines over a specified limit, and shotguns.

TAMPA, Florida (PNN) - June 9, 2019 - William Montanez is used to getting stopped by the terrorist pig thug cops in Tampa, Florida, for small-time traffic and marijuana violations; it’s happened to him more than a dozen times. When they pulled him over last June, he didn’t try to hide his pot, telling terrorist pig thug cops, “Yeah, I smoke it, there’s a joint in the center console, you gonna arrest me for that?”

They did arrest him, not only for the marijuana but also for two small bottles they believed contained THC oil - a felony - and for having a firearm while committing that felony (they found a handgun in the glove box).

Then things got testy.
