God referenced five times in the Declaration of Independence

It always amazes me when otherwise intelligent people are unable to find evidence of God in our governing documents. The Declaration of Independence, the signing of which we commemorate July 4th, alone has five references to God – two in the first paragraph, one in the middle and two in the last. It begins, “When in […]

Getting out of the United Nations

I remember when grade schools promoted UNICEF by asking students to raise money while trick-or-treating every Halloween. In fact, looking back the United Nations was always treated favorably in school. I never heard a negative comment in my university experience either. Out of school, when I was able to control what I read, the literature […]

Globalism and climate control merge

The first billionaire in U.S. history was John D. Rockefeller. He and J. P. Morgan dominated late 19th and early 20th centuries’ economic and political history, even more so after they teamed up to create the Council on Foreign Relations in 1921, which quickly became the most powerful political special interest group in U.S. history. Recently, I […]

Please don’t call me conservative or liberal

  Please understand! I am deeply offended when called either conservative or liberal. These are traps for the ignorant who wish to reduce my years of serious contemplation to a word so that a part of my readers can praise me, “Well done! “ “You are one of us!” And the other part can dismiss me […]

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 […]

Until 1913, no one paid income tax. Why now?

As a nation under the U.S. Constitution, we are 228 years old. It may surprise readers to learn that for the first 124 of these years we had no federal income tax and handled expenses quite well. Today some people pay as much as a fifth to a fourth of their income. Before 1913 people kept […]
