Cops Should be Held to Higher, Not Lower, Standards

Cops Should be Held to Higher, Not Lower, Standards

    by Thomas L. Knapp I don’t live in Baltimore. I will not be a juror on any of the cases relating to Freddie Gray’s death from injuries he sustained while in police custody. I’m not going to predict the verdicts in those cases, or speculate as to what those verdicts should be. Those […]

Yes, Mitt, We Have Mass Incarceration in America

Yes, Mitt, We Have Mass Incarceration in America

    by Thomas L. Knapp Quoth Mitt Romney on Fox and Friends: “We don’t have mass incarcerations in America. Individuals are brought before tribunals, and they have counsel. They’re given certain rights. Are we not going to lock people up who commit crimes?” Finding hard statistics on how many Americans are caught up in […]

For Religious Freedom, Separate Marriage and State

For Religious Freedom, Separate Marriage and State

    By Thomas L. Knapp As the Supreme Court takes up the matter of marriage apartheid — an institution of forcible segregation and exclusion aimed at same-sex couples and codified in state laws which defy both the Constitution’s “full faith and credit” clause and its 14th Amendment’s “equal protection” clause — its supporters once […]

Too Many Secrets

Too Many Secrets

    By Thomas L. Knapp Inquiring minds want to know: What, precisely, do 28 pages of the US Senate’s report on the 9/11 attacks say? Those particular 28 pages have remained classified since the report was issued in 2002. Former US Senator Bob Graham (D-FL), lead author of the report, wants those pages released. […]

By L. Neil Smith I’ve been hearing and seeing reports that politicians in your states, those of Oklahoma and Nebraska, are very angry because a majority of voters in Colorado have decided to ignore the imperious edicts of the federal government and of the vile, corrupt United Nations, and make it legal to grow, process, […]

Are You Good Enough for Freedom?

Are You Good Enough for Freedom?

By L.Neil Smith L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE I saw a bumper sticker being advertised the other day, meant for the time when Barack Obama finally leaves office, that simply said “The End Of An Error”. Although I fully appreciate and heartily sympathize with the sentiment, I fundamentally disagree with it. One only needs […]

How to get rid of John Boehner

By L. Neil Smith  _L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE_ More than any other person, the miscreant most responsible for burdening Americans with Obamacare, shredding the Constitution in the matter of Obama’s amnesty edict, and destroying freedom in countless ways over the past seven years is the man who could have stopped it all, or […]

You’re about to make an historic mistake — you’re about to make the _usual_ historical mistake that has given Democrats the upper hand too many times over the past eighty years or so. Allow me to explain: I began my political activism in […]

Three and a half funerals

Three and a half funerals

By L. Neil Smith We’ve all seen it, dozens, perhaps even hundreds of times. A young man or woman, a young son or daughter, a young husband or wife, comes back from some unnecessary, idiotic war in “Bumfuck, Egypt” — in a box. Drums roll, bugles play, bagpipes flare. Maybe rifles in a row are […]

It cites crimes committed by high officials (of both major parties), demands their resignations, special prosecutors and new elections.
