Getting back to the Constitution in education

In an executive order issued April 26 President Donald Trump ordered a rollback of what he termed “a federal power grab” in education. Constitutionally, this order is profound and long overdue. The order begins, “By the authority vested in me as president by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and […]

CIA spy penetration worse than presumed

Over the years, LibertyUnderFire has provided multiple columns on the National Security Agency’s massive intelligence gathering and storage of all electronic information from all electric devices and how such activity violated the 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution of all U.S. citizens. Knowledge of such intelligence gathering is now well-known, and after the document dump by Edward […]

Government shutdown may be a good thing

Democrats won’t fund a border wall and threaten a “government shutdown” if included in the budget under consideration. Without President Donald Trump removing the wall from consideration for now, a shutdown would be likely. Trump won largely on the popularity of the wall but promised to make Mexico pay for it with a better trade […]

Trump defies constitutional separation of powers with Syrian attack

Even though President Donald Trump believes it proper to bomb Syria, a country that has done us no harm, he has no constitutional authority to do so. Because weak Congresses have not punished previous presidents, both Democrat and Republican, when they did the same, it does not make the action constitutional. Despite compelling humanitarian reasons justifying the […]

Traditionally, this organization claims either the president or the vice president in every administration, and always the secretary of […]

The power of the ‘Deep State’ worse than thought

The power of the “deep state,” the intelligence community’s lock on the secrets of every citizen in the United States, information that used to be only in sensational magazines, is now public knowledge. The March 8, WikiLeaks dump of over 9,000 emails, a dump reportedly far larger and worse than the Edward Snowden revelations in […]

Democracy rejected by founders

In the 2016 presidential election the Democrats never used the word republic to describe the political system and Republicans rarely used it, both preferring to use the word democracy. Most people ignorantly refer to the political system as a democracy and have to be reminded that this word is not in the Declaration of Independence, […]

Enslaving debt has soared to almost $20 trillion

Within 40 days our national debt is likely to be $20 trillion; $4 trillion from eight years of former President George W. Bush and $10 trillion from eight years of former President Barack Obama – the two biggest spending presidents in U.S. history. Obama alone accumulated more debt than all previous presidents put together. So what […]
