“Everything the State says is a lie, and everything it has it has stolen.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra
Judge Andrew Napolitano opens his new book, Lies the Government Told You, with that quote, and that’s the book’s theme: the State is our enemy because it constantly lies, steals, and kills.
That’s a pretty radical idea, so this is a radical book.
This is not a book about “public policy,” about how we might limit the rate of government’s growth, or about how to “reform” this or that program. It’s not really even about “getting back to the Constitution.”
Instead, this book is about exposing the criminal acts of our rulers in Washington, and about abolishing and repealing powers and programs wholesale.

My most recent article for OpEdNews, “Into a Thousand Pieces,” has drawn an unbelievable, positive response from the readership, for which I am extremely grateful. It is encouraging to know that almost forty-seven years after the last true President of the United States was murdered in Dallas, with the three unconstitutional branches of our government in firm control of our nation, that there are still other people who mourn him and desire some form of justice for him. And for ourselves as well.
A summation of the article is this: the set-up and cover up of John F. Kennedy’s assassination precludes any theory that does not include the National Security State apparatus’ involvement.
Folks, this includes any theory where Lee Harvey Oswald is the lone gunman.

”Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all . . . The Nation which indulges toward another an habitual hatred or an habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest.” George Washington, Farewell Address, September 17, 1796
I hate that term. “The War on Terror.” I hate using the word “hate.” But I feel so strongly that our foreign policy has gone awry that I can’t help but speak out. We should all feel a duty as Americans to protect and defend the Constitution whose limits are made a mockery of by the misguided “intellectuals” in Washington and their taxpayer funded “think-tanks” who call the shots and continually get it wrong. Their punishment, a promotion to some other bureaucratic agency where they can wreck more havoc and again disregard the rule of law. Even congress, who’s authority it is, doesn’t even have the fortitude to “declare war” as outlined in Article I, Section 8 of our constitution anymore. Can you imagine what our founder’s would think of our foreign policy exploits and the executive powers held by the President today? Death, destruction-reconstruction and the bankrupting of behaving as an “empire” will only garner additional support for those who despise our overreaching foreign policy behavior. Nations don’t hate us because of our way of life or our freedom-they despise our governments never ending meddling in their internal affairs. Ask yourself how you would feel if a “foreign” nation were on our soil doing what we are doing in over 130 countries and over 700 bases around the world. You know all well you’d be fighting mad!
“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes-known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” James Madison, Political Observations, 1795
