Duncan Hunter Stumps in South Carolina

Washington, DC (TLS). U.S. House Representative Duncan Hunter, R-CA, has apparently found a receptive audience in the state of South Carolina. As a candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination, Hunter has been to the state twice in the last month, first to announce his candidacy, and then to campaign in the state on Friday of this week.

Hunter addressed a breakfast meeting at the luxurious Spartanburg Marriott Hotel at Renaissance Park Friday morning. Attendees at the breakfast included Spartanburg textile mogul Roger Milliken, who has endorsed Hunter.

The breakfast was sponsored by 'FreedomWorks,' a Washington-based issues-oriented group founded by former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey, R-TX. FreedomWorks has a strong presence in 10 states and employs a full-time staff in each of these states. The group's website states that the organization has over 800,000 members nationwide.

According to the organization's founding principles, FreedomWorks' objective is to support smaller government and lower taxes. Rep. Hunter fits the bill of the type of candidate FreedomWorks supports.

During the breakfast in Spartanburg, Hunter took questions from local citizens who attended the meeting. He reiterated his support for consistent, firm enforcement of the nation's immigration laws--a growing sore spot among a significant portion of the American population. In the wake of a near-20-year lack of attention to immigration law, resulting in the onslaught of millions of illegal aliens on American society, Hunter believes that it is essential to the nation's survival that we make a clear distinction between legal immigration and illegal entry into the country. Illegal aliens are law-breakers and not 'immigrants.' Hunter would stop the influx of illegals into the country by re-enforcing the security of the nation's borders, bolstering the strength of the Border Patrol, and strictly enforcing the immigration laws already on the books--laws that have been virtually ignored by both the Bush and Clinton administrations.

In addition, Hunter stressed the need for fair trade policies in order to protect the U.S. from unfair practices of nations such as China, who use current law to their benefit at America's expense.

Perhaps the most attractive quality exhibited by the candidate at Friday's breakfast is his insistence that no 'image consultants' be used in his campaign. Hunter believes in a 'what-you-see-is-what-you-get' approach to campaigning. Many at Friday's breakfast lauded Hunter for his stand, as the nation has been forced to endure a barrage of politicians in both Parties that appear to be more concerned with 'image' than genuineness.

Hunter is the genuine article--the real deal. The candidate quipped, 'I don't have to spend any money on image consultants. I already know what I stand for, and I just need to tell the people.'

It cannot be stressed enough that Duncan Hunter is one of only a handful of politicians in Washington who rates a grade of A+ from Gun Owners of America.

That sounds good to us.

Border Patrol Agents' Bond Request Denied

Washington, DC (TLS). With each passing day the case of the Border Patrol agents who fired at an illegal alien drug runner becomes more troubling. No murder was committed. The alien was shot in the buttocks, which is by no means life-threatening. Yet, these two American patriots were send to prison for a dozen years and are being denied bond.


The latest request that the two agents be released on bond pending appeal of the verdict has been denied by the court. This makes absolutely no sense. In fact, not a single detail of this story makes any sense whatsoever...UNLESS someone in the highest levels of government knows more than has been disclosed.

The most troubling fact of all, however, is that what they know is designed to protect an illegal alien drug runner by hauling off to jail the very law enforcement officials at the border who uncovered the crime. Obviously, someone, somewhere wants the two silenced, out of the way, and muzzled.

It is highly suspicious that two law enforcement officials would be given sentences amounting to 12 years for one, and 11 years for the other, when the very worst thing that happened is that an illegal alien drug runner got shot in the buttocks. Add to that the murky story of lies in the Department of Homeland Security, which was admitted to Congress in a hearing a few weeks ago.

Why would the government lie in order to incarcerate two law enforcement officials if the truth were enough to convict them?

The simple answer is that the truth does NOT convict them at all. Therefore, a plot to deceive had to be devised by the Department of Homeland Security in order to make sure they were convicted. If the government has to tell lies in order to gain a conviction, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that telling the truth would result in an unacceptable scenario for the Department of Homeland Security, namely, that the two agents would be found not guilty of the charges.

The question persists as to why, exactly, the government wanted so badly to see these two men imprisoned. The fact that a known drug runner from Mexico was given complete immunity, was never charged with his crimes, and was used to testify against two Americans in OUR courts, certainly does not help the government's case. In fact, all of the facts point to high-level misconduct, reaching from U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton and Judge Kathleen Cardone all the way to the highest levels of the Department of Homeland Security, which has already admitted to lies in the case.

Under normal circumstances, the mere fact that the prosecution, which in this case is the U.S. Government, lied to the court would be enough for the case to be declared a mistrial and the defendants released from prison.

Not in this case.


Theories abound as to why. Yet the most plausible theory we have heard to date has to do with the illegal alien himself and his connections both to the U.S. Government AND to the government of Mexico.

In short, the drug runner from Mexico has high-level friends in both governments. This scenario would begin to explain why a simple case of law enforcement doing its duty to subdue a criminal would turn into a three-ring circus resulting in two innocent men going to jail for over a decade. It would also begin to explain government deception, cover-up, and a steadfast refusal by the U.S. officials to release the two on bond, despite the fact we now know they were convicted on the basis of government lies.

It would also begin to explain why George W. Bush has been so very willing to risk his reputation and support among the members of his own Party by his steadfast refusal to issue pardons.

But the question that remains unanswered is just who, exactly, is this illegal alien drug runner that the governments of Mexico and the United States are trying so hard to protect, even at the expense of throwing two innocent American citizens in jail?

Perhaps this, too, is part of the cover-up. To know the full identity of this criminal would lead to discoveries about his game and his CONTACTS. And THAT, my friends, apparently is something that no one in the Bush Administration wants anyone to know.

The Liberty Sphere has suggested before that this could well mean the complete unraveling of the Bush Presidency. We stand by that initial assessment. Nothing that has come to light in the past two weeks since the government admitted to Congress that it lied has served to ease suspicions. Rather, ever single fact that has been made public about this case serves as cause for only more suspicion.

It is our assessment that Mr. Bush is walking on thin ice with this case. He has lost the respect of some members of his own Party over this debacle, and he has created suspicion in the minds of others who previously had given him unwavering support. The talk of impeachment by Congressional Republicans is not empty rhetoric. Some of these admirable patriots are willing to put aside political loyalty for honor.

Something very dishonorable has happened in the Border Patrol case, and everyone knows it. Only the President at this point can correct this stain on the Republic by issuing pardons to the two agents, and launching investigations into high crimes and misdemeanors on the part of government officials, including the Department of Homeland Security.

If this is not done, the President can rest assured that Congressional Republicans will launch their own investigation into high crimes and misdemeanors, except this time that investigation will target the President himself.

Iran to Take Half of Iraq?

Washington, DC (TLS). The Liberty Sphere has learned of an ominous plan under consideration that would divide Iraq in half. Under the proposed plan, half the country would be given to Iran as a haven for terrorists.

This bombshell was dropped by Republican U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota.

You may remember Rep. Bachmann as the original sponsor of the 'Taxpayers' Bill of Rights,' the goal of which was to protect taxpayer interests and guard against needless tax increases. Bachmann was also the very first Republican woman to be elected to national office in the state of Minnesota. First elected in 2000, Bachmann has been one of the rising stars of the Republican Party. She represents Minnesota's 6th Congressional District and serves on the House Financial Services Committee.

Bachmann claims that a plan has been proposed whereby Iraq would be divided, giving half the country to Iran. This area would serve as a haven for terrorists where they would be given sanctuary, training, and financial support. Bachmann also fears that the sector would serve as a staging area for terrorist attacks in the Middle East and against the United States.

However, the details are fuzzy as to where the proposal came from and by whom. Bachmann had earlier suggested the plan was final. Later she backed away from her initial assessment and stated that this was a proposal on the table and was being considered by those within the U.S. government who are debating the future course of America in Iraq.

Bachmann has refused to grant interviews to the Media concerning her assertions.

This suggests to observers that perhaps the Congresswoman 'outed' certain members of the Bush Administration who are apparently ready to give away half the country to Iran in exchange for some semblance of victory in Iraq. Thus, the retraction and the subsequent silence.

The Liberty Sphere is in no way blaming Rep. Bachmann for this series of statements and retractions. Obviously Congressional Republicans are under immense pressure from the White House to 'get with the program,' and proponents of this ominous plan certainly would not want word of their agenda spread throughout the media.

Representative Bachmann actually did us all a favor by uncovering a covert plan that would essentially be a boon to terrorism not only in the Middle East but around the world. She should be congratulated for alerting the media, and the public, about this grossly ill-conceived notion of rewarding terrorists with a portion of Iraq in exchange for a partial victory in the rest of the country.

Such shenanigans may make the President look good, but the consequences would be disastrous.

The American public should in no way whatsoever lend their support to any plan that would reward terrorists or make their ultimate goal of world domination easier. As for me, I would consider Representative Bachmann as a true American patriot whose service in Washington comes at a time when their number is few and far between.

Guess Who's Sponsoring Amnesty for Illegals!

Washington, DC (TLS). Guess who's sponsoring legislation that will make the path toward citizenship easier for illegal aliens! I will give you a hint. One of the bill's primary sponsors is Senator Ted Kennedy, D-MA, who has never seen an amnesty bill he didn't like.

This time, however, he has some help from a top-name Republican who is running for the Party's Presidential nomination.

Have you guessed it yet?

None other than our illustrious Republican Presidential candidate John McCain has joined Chappaquiddick Teddy in drafting legislation that makes citizenship so easy for law-breaking illegal aliens that it is tantamount to amnesty.

Once again, we see in stark display the dark, evil collusion between Democrats and Republicans in aiding the raping of American society and culture by illegals. In our opinion here at The Liberty Sphere, that makes them accessories to crime. When an ordinary citizen helps a criminal commit a crime, that person is considered an accessory to that crime in our judicial system. Illegal aliens are breaking the law. They are being aided in doing so by the nation's politicians, with the exception of a few faithful Republicans in the House who have ALWAYS sounded the alarm about this travesty of the law. Thus, Senators and Representatives who support the continued onslaught on American society by law breakers, primarily from Mexico, are accessories to crime.

When are Americans finally going to demand that our elected officials do something about our borders and about illegal aliens? So far, all we have gotten is empty talk and vain promises, even by President George W. Bush. While the President likes to point out that something is being done about the problem, his cronies from Texas whom he himself appointed unleashed an outrageous assault on two Border Patrol agents who were merely doing the job they were hired to do. The President has yet to act against these individuals, in both the U.S. Judiciary, and in the Department of Homeland Security. He has also failed to grant Presidential pardons to the two falsely accused Border Patrol agents who are rotting in jail for a dozen years.

Yet in the midst of this outrage, not only does the Senate pretend that the incident did not happen, but it is actually considering legislation that will make the problem WORSE.

Remember these names--TED KENNEDY and JOHN McCAIN.

But there are plenty more. The following article traces the proponents and supporters of this despicable bill. Memorize their names. They are in essence supporting the disintegration of American society as we know it by supporting the breaking of our laws. The rule of law for the masses is a joke unless that rule of law applies as much to aliens and immigrants as anyone else.

So far, the illegal aliens are the ones getting all the breaks.

And what message does THAT send?!

Affidavit Points to High Level Help in OKC Bombing

Washington, DC (TLS). An affidavit filed in the U.S. District Court in Utah claims that high level government officials, particularly in the FBI, were involved in the Oklahoma City bombing. The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols has cooperated with officials investigating the case and has pointed investigators to someone in the highest levels of the FBI, as well as overseas Islamic terrorists.

While the story that ran in the Salt Lake Tribune does not mention terrorism, the families of victims of the Oklahoma City bombing have long insisted that Nichols and his partner, Timothy McVeigh, had connections to overseas Muslim terrorists. This is in addition to their contact in the highest levels of the FBI.

The filing of the affidavit on February 9, 2007, is an important step in the investigation. Prior to that date, Nichols had not been allowed to submit his information to the court.

The Liberty Sphere has long believed that McVeigh and Nichols were convenient scapegoats for the bombing. There is no doubt they were involved, but this case goes far beyond McVeigh and Nichols. The fact that the government has been dragging its feet for over 10 years in tracking down connections between the bombing and Islamic terrorists, and possible co-conspirators in the highest levels of government, only adds to the suspicions.

Now that Nichols has made his statement to the court, and the information is on record, perhaps we can now take this case to the next level. The nation owes it to the families of the victims.

More Hillary Clinton Quotes, Part 3

Washington, DC (TLS). In this segment of 'Quotes From Hillary Clinton,' we see the Senator from New York as she is--a Socialist subversive who wishes to remake American society into something it was never intended to be. Pay close attention to the first one, where she states upfront that she wishes to take things away from people--by government force--on behalf of 'the common good.'

"Many of you are well enough off that [President Bush's] tax cuts may have helped you. We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We're going to have to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."(Hillary grandstanding at a fund raising speech in San Francisco; 6/28/2004 .)

"We are at a stage in history in which remolding society is one of the great challenges facing all of us in the West." (From the book "I've Always Been A Yankee Fan" by Thomas D. Kuiper, p. 119 - During her 1993 commencement address at the University of Texas)

"The only way to make a difference is to acquire power" (From the book "I've Always Been A Yankee Fan" by Thomas D. Kuiper, p. 68 - Hillary to a friend before starting law school.)

"We just can't trust the American people to make those types of choices.... Government has to make those choices for people"(From the book "I've Always Been A Yankee Fan" by Thomas D. Kuiper, p. 20 - Hillary to Rep. Dennis Hastert in 1993 discussing her expensive, disastrous taxpayer-funded health care plan)

"I am a fan of the social policies that you find in Europe" Hillary in 1996" From the book "I've Always Been A Yankee Fan" by Thomas D. Kuiper, p. 76 - Hillary in 1996)

Poll Shows Americans Want to Win in Iraq

Washington, DC (TLS). For several weeks now, The Liberty Sphere has had reason to doubt most of the major national polls concerning the War in Iraq, the strategy of President Bush in the War, and the feelings of citizens about the so-called 'troop surge.' The first indication that something fishy was going on with polling data surfaced when Katie Couric and CBS News utilized a deft 'slight of hand' procedure to misrepresent poll results.

In that exclusive Liberty Sphere report, we blew the whistle on Couric's attempt to portray the results of a national poll as indicating that a 53% majority of Americans either do not support funding the troop surge or support the withdrawal of funding from the war altogether. The truth was that only 45% of those polled stated they would not support funding the troop surge...meaning a 55% majority SUPPORT it. In addition, a mere 8% of those polled stated they would withdraw funding from the War entirely. Couric conveniently failed to mention that this meant that fully 92% of those polled FAVOR continued funding of the War.

However, Couric and company went further than simply not giving all the facts. They actually used a dishonest technique to arrive at their so-called 53% majority against the War. Couric added the 45% and the 8% together to arrive at the 53%.

No problem, you say? Well, only if you are totally unaware of simple mathematics and statistical data, which Couric and CBS News obviously hoped was the case. When using their exact same technique using the percentages of those who SUPPORT funding the War (92%) and those who SUPPORT funding the troop surge (55%), one arrives at a whopping 147% majority of Americans who support funding the surge and the War in general.

Naturally these figures are skewed due to the simple fact that you cannot have 147% support. 100% is as good as it gets. Thus, the method by which Couric and CBS News arrived at their so-called 53% majority who either wish to deny funding to the surge or withdraw funding from the War altogether is so fundamentally flawed that the conclusion is skewed and grossly misleading.

Against that backdrop comes news today that a new poll finds that Americans actually express widespread approval for continuing the fight against terrorism in Iraq and giving the troop surge a fair chance.

According to CNS News Service, a new POS poll (Public Opinion Strategies) indicates that by a 53% to 46% margin, Americans believe that Democrats are going to far too fast in pressuring the President to withdraw from Iraq. The national survey, conducted among a bi-partisan cross-section of citizens, shows that the public still supports President Bush and wants a 'clear victory' in the War in Iraq.

In a surprising footnote to the poll, respondents stated that they believe the central focus of fighting the War on Terror is Iraq and the surrounding area, and that they want a clear strategy aimed a victory in the region.

This nation-wide survey was taken February 5-7, 2007.

We can rest assured we will never hear about THIS poll from Katie Couric and CBS News, or any of the other three major networks that slant the news in favor of the Bush-bashing forces. The results are too far outside the commonly accepted political orthodoxy that guides the reporting of the news in the mainstream media. Yet I have a strong hunch that this poll is infinitely closer to the real truth than the blatant dishonest reporting of poll results by CBS News.

The McCarthy Vendetta Against Guns

Washington, DC (TLS). Who is Carolyn McCarthy? We know she is a Liberal Democrat who represents the 4th Congressional District of New York in the U.S. House of Representatives. We also know she relentlessly pursues restricting gun rights with a fervor that is unwavering.

Delving into the background of Rep. McCarthy lends insight into the rationale behind the Congresswoman's desire to rewrite the Constitution by essentially removing any practical right to keep and bear firearms by loading up the U.S. Code with laws that render the 2nd Amendment useless. McCarthy's ex-husband was murdered and her son injured by a gunman who randomly opened fire on passengers of a commuter train on Long Island in 1993. No doubt this is a heart-wrenching tragedy that is only understood by those who have suffered through it.

Yet McCarthy responded to the tragedy, not by introducing strict measures that target and punish criminals, but by unleashing an assault on law-abiding citizens. Rather than target perpetrators her strategy has been to target the general public in an attempt to thwart a few criminals in the process. This strategy is tantamount to outlawing automobiles for law-abiding citizens due to the fact that Muslim extremists use vehicles to murder infidels in the name of the Jihad.

Of course, Americans would never stand for such an assault on their freedom to drive autos, no matter how many deaths and injuries are caused by them each year. And yes, a significant number of these deaths are directly attributable to those who use vehicles as weapons of murder, as we have seen all too often recently in the news in Salt Lake City and Nashville, Tennessee.

McCarthy's misplaced desire to avenge the death of her ex-husband and the injury of her son by making law-abiding citizens pay is the height of irresponsibility. The vast majority of gun owners never use their weapons to fire at a human being. It is estimated that there are over 100 million gun owners in America. Many of these citizens own multiple weapons. We can assume that there are upwards of 200 million guns, at the very least, in America today. Only a small fraction of these are used in committing crimes.

Yet McCarthy has introduced legislation that will vastly expand the provisions of the assault weapons ban that was initially passed by Congress in the early 1990s. In addition, McCarthy has further introduced legislation that circumvents due process of law by denying gun ownership to certain groups of citizens, such as those who for one reason or another find themselves on lists used by airlines to prevent certain persons from boarding aircraft. This provision is part of a bill introduced by McCarthy, H.R. 1167, which also contains these words: 'To amend chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, to extend the firearm and ammunition prohibitions applicable to convicted felons to those convicted in a foreign court.'

Thus, not only would McCarthy remove your right to keep and bear arms if you happen to get on someone's 'no fly' list, but she would also deny you that right if you are ever convicted of a crime in Libya, or Saudi Arabia, or Somalia.

Liberals have screamed bloody murder for the past six years over the Bush Administration's supposed circumventing of due process of law. Those protests have always had a hollow ring to them, precisely because of proposed legislation such as McCarthy's H.R. 1167.

These people don't give a flying flip about due process of law, except when it can to used to whip one's political opponent.

The bottom line is that this bill is one more example of the attempt by the forces of anti-freedom to gradually remove Constitutional rights from the electorate by targeting specific groups, and then expanding that list of targeted groups to include more and more citizens, such as those convicted of crimes in kangaroo courts overseas.

The day will eventually arrive, therefore, when NO ONE will have the right to keep and bear arms because the list of targeted groups will include just about everyone in the country.

Make no mistake, this IS their ultimate goal.

Americans must not allow an ultra-extremist, rogue representative such as Carolyn McCarthy to dictate firearms laws to the rest of the country because of her inability to deal with grief in an appropriate fashion. Healthy grief involves anger, no doubt. But normally that anger is directed at perpetrators of mayhem and not at innocent, law-abiding citizens. So far, McCarthy has engaged in a haphazard, subtle blaming of innocent citizens by making them pay for what one crazed gunman does.

Happy HUMP Day! Our Top Stories for Wednesday

Washington, DC (TLS). Happy HUMP Day, everyone! Just 3 to go 'till the weekend!

Here are The Liberty Sphere's top news stories and commentary for today:

**FLASH! Pelosi Supports Tuition Breaks for Illegals

**McCarthy Bill Assaults 2nd Amendment

**Media Blackout on News of Attack by Muslim
(the Muslim cabbie attack in Nashville)

**Liberty Alert!! More Banks Aid Illegals


FLASH! Pelosi Backs Tuition Breaks for Illegals

Washington, DC (TLS). Even as the nation learns that many of its top banking conglomerates issue credit cards to illegal aliens, word has come late Tuesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, supports giving tuition breaks to illegals. The provision would be included in an overall package in the name of helping lower-income students gain an education through tuition breaks and grants.

Pelosi and several of her Democrat colleagues favor extending these breaks to illegal aliens.

As The Liberty Sphere has reported repeatedly, both Democrats and Republicans are up to their eyeballs in scandal concerning the callous disregard of the nation's immigration laws. We have taken the Bush administration to task over the Border Patrol scandal, and now it is time to put the spotlight on Democrats.

Illegal aliens are NOT 'immigrants.' They are law-breakers. 'Immigrants' come to this nation legally. Illegal aliens are not deserving of one single amenity afforded to U.S. citizens. Yet here is our illustrious Speaker of the House proposing tuition breaks for law-breakers who show a total disregard for American law. This means that Pelosi and company ALSO show a total disregard for American law.

Increasingly, as the 2008 election cycle gets closer, the mantra, 'throw the bums out' seems to be the only prudent course for both Democrats AND Republicans. The only ones who deserve re-election are the handful of Republicans who have stood up to the Bush Administration on immigration and who have consistently voted to protect our borders and to stop the invasion of America by criminals who refuse to come here legally.

McCarthy Bill Assaults 2nd Amendment

Washington, DC (TLS). The McCarthy bill, H.R. 1022, which is called the 'Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act of 2007,' is an outright assault on the 2nd Amendment rights of American citizens. The Supreme Court ruled in 1938 that military firearms are protected under the 2nd Amendment. Yet since that ruling, liberal politicians and rogue court rulings that ignore legal precedent have launched endless assaults on the Constitutional rights of citizens in the name of 'assault weapons bans' and other such emotionally-tinged nomenclature.

U.S. House Representative Carolyn McCarthy, D-NY, introduced the legislation on February 13, 2007. The Bill was then referred to the House Judiciary Committee that is chaired by an avowed proponent of a handgun ban, Rep. John Conyers, who has been the subject of House investigations in the past revolving around violations of federal campaign laws. We can be assured the gun-grabber Conyers and his cohorts on the Senate Judiciary Committee will do all within their power to put this bill on the fast track in the House.

This bill is one of the most far-reaching and dangerous assaults on the firearms rights of the American people in the history of the Republic. The bill expands the definition of assault weapons to include barrel shrouds for rifles. In fact, the expanded definition profoundly lengthens the list of what would be considered illegal, in spite of the fact that legal precedent holds that these weapons are protected under the provisions of the 2nd Amendment.

Once again, however, the language of the bill refers to hunting, insinuating that this is the only legitimate justification for having a firearm. This has become an all-too-familiar tactic of gun-grabbers who wish to brainwash the public into believing that the only truly legitimate reason for owning a gun is hunting. The 2nd Amendment never mentions it. Nowhere in the Constitution is it even vaguely implied that firearms rights are primarily to protect hunters. The wording is very clear and stark: '...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be abridged.'

Further, the Constitution never makes a distinction between the weapons used by law enforcement as opposed to individual citizens, or between the military and individual citizens. It was assumed until the latter half of the 20th century that any weapon that was legal for law enforcement and the military was legal for the citizens.

The forces of anti-freedom, however, are committed to a revision of the meaning of terms used by the Founders when describing the rights they delineated, which were understood as applicable to all citizens, regardless of any 'granting' of these rights by government. These revisionists would have us believe, in the first place, that the 2nd Amendment does not affirm any individual right, and secondly, that only government can determine what is an individual right and 'grant' that right to the populace.

Such notions were anathema to the Founders of this Republic. The foundational principle affirmed by the Founders in the Declaration of Independence, and the U.S. Constitution, is that human beings are already endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. This is their birthright as human beings. And no government can legitimately 'grant' those rights or take them away. Government can only affirm the rights that are already inherent to human life. Governments that refuse to affirm those natural rights, or attempt to remove those natural rights from the people, are to be viewed as tyrannical and illegitimate. They are therefore to be overthrown.

No, my friends, this is not the subversive talk of dangerous, head-strong vigilantes who seek to overthrow the government. These are our Founders' own words.

Thus, the attempt of the likes of Carolyn McCarthy, John Conyers, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and others to implement laws that severely restrict individual rights that are inherent to human beings, and affirmed in our Constitution, is nothing short of tyrannical. If this bill is allowed to see the light of day in Congress, then this is cause for recrimination against those who push it.

You can be assured The Liberty Sphere will update its blacklist to include the names of anyone in Congress who votes in favor of this bill.

Media Blackout on News of Attack by Muslim

Washington, DC (TLS). The national mainstream media is once again implicated in yet another news blackout of an attack by a Muslim, this time a cabbie in the city of Nashville, Tennessee. Ibrahim Ahmed, 37, reportedly a driver for United Cab, picked up two students near the campus of Vanderbilt University. The two were visiting from Ohio.

The details of the attack are a bit fuzzy due to the news blackout, but reports indicate that an argument ensued between the Muslim cabbie and the two students regarding religion. The students paid the cab driver and walked away. But the cabbie went after them with his vehicle, running them over.

Ahmed is from the nation of Somalia.

United Cab Company, however, denies that the attacker was an employee or driver for United Cab. Apparently, Ahmed had applied for a job but was not yet approved. He began showing up for work, acting as if he were hired, and someone mistakenly gave him the keys to a cab.

The fact that the national mainstream media would deliberately fail to report this story on the heels of a terrorist attack in Salt Lake City by a Muslim is incomprehensible. This story is important if for no other reason than to point out how easy it is for a terrorist to misrepresent himself/herself as an employee of an American company and be given free access to large groups of people, including employee records, all of which could be used in committing an act of terrorism.

Yet the mainstream media apparently believes that it is largely unimportant that Americans are increasingly targeted by Muslims living in our midst who are either carrying out a carefully conceived plan or are examples of 'Sudden Jihad Syndrome.' The national media has yet to identify the perpetrator of the Trolley Mall murders in Salt Lake as Muslim. It should also be noted here that a quick scan of the major local news affiliates throughout the South ALSO indicates a news blackout of the identity and nature of the perpetrator. The local television stations merely report that an argument broke out about religion and that the cab driver is in jail...but no mention that the cab driver is Muslim or that the nature of the argument had to do with Islam.

In the Nashville case, the mere fact that the victims would disagree with the Muslim cabbie about religion apparently was enough to convince the perpetrator that the two were infidels who needed to be murdered. The American public needs to be fully informed of this ever-present danger.

Thus, the Muslim carnage continues unabated. When will America finally wake up?

LIBERTY ALERT!! More Banks Aid Illegals(UPDATE)

Washington, DC (TLS). When The Liberty Sphere reported last week that Bank of America unveiled plans to offer credit cards to illegal aliens, little did we know at the time that this would be only the tip of the iceberg. Many of the top mega-banking conglomerates in the United States have similar programs. One in particular, Wells Fargo, has had such a program since 2001.

The banking corporations that aid and abet the breaking of American law by illegal aliens include the following: Bank of America, Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan/Chase, Wachovia, Citicorp and all of their subsidiaries. It is to be noted that many smaller banking institutions also aid those who commit crime. Thus, it is incumbent upon potential customers that they thoroughly research the practices of the banks they are considering using.

The assault and rape of the United States of America by illegal aliens will never stop as long as business and government look the other way. Americans are increasingly outraged by the unwillingness of government to stop this onslaught against our way of life and the willingness of American big business to contribute to the problem.

Americans will most assuredly display their rage at the voting booth in 2008. The question is, how thoroughly will they express this outrage toward businesses that aid and abet the breaking of American law?

The time has come to fight back, my friends. Two websites may be of extreme interest in this fight. Americans for Legal Immigration has a list of banking institutions that offer products to illegal aliens. They also provide a list of top banking institutions that DO NOT engage in this practice. As for me, I plan to patronize ONLY those banking institutions that refuse to lend aid to foreign lawbreakers who exhibit a callous disregard for American law.

An important link to a site that lists, state by state, the banks that caters to illegal aliens and those that do not, can be found here:

Texas to Expand Gun-Rights/Self-Defense

Washington, DC (TLS). Texas is set to expand the gun rights and self-defense rights of its citizens. With at least 100 out of 150 state house legislators and 21 out of 27 state senators backing the legislation, known as the 'stand your ground' bill, this new law is expected to gain easy passage.

Under the provisions of the 'stand your ground' bill, the law would expand the concept known as 'the Castle Doctrine'--an ancient concept of English Common Law that maintains a person has the right to use force, including deadly force, in the defense of one's home, without any risk of criminal or civil liability. The Texas bill would expand the Castle doctrine to include one's automobile and place of business.

Thus, if citizens feel that their lives are endangered while at the work place or behind the wheel, they can feel free to use deadly force with the backing of the law. And, in those cases where citizens use a firearm to defend themselves against harm, whether at home, work, or in an automobile, they are granted the protection of the law from criminal or civil litigation.

Detractors claim that Texas does not need such a law since, according to some critics, 'citizens are normally not prosecuted in Texas for matters related to self-defense anyway.'

This may be true, but the concept of an individual citizen's right to self-defense with a firearm or any other weapon must be codified into a legally binding provision that would shield citizens from any possible prosecution. The bill's critics are relying solely upon Texas culture to protect citizens in the event they use deadly force in self-defense. However, should that culture change, there are all too-many lawyers and District Attorneys who would not hesitate to make citizens liable for actions taken in self-defense. It has already happened in other states. In fact, in some states the Castle Doctrine has come near to going the way of the dinosaur, even in the protection of one's home. All too often across the United States, prosecuting attorneys have aggressively brought charges against citizens who defend themselves and their homes against criminal intrusion. Many of these citizens have also found themselves the needless victims of lawsuits brought by CRIMINALS who are injured while breaking and entering. The expansion of the Castle Doctrine in Texas is an important step in insuring that citizens feel free to protect themselves, including the use of firearms under the provisions of the Second Amendment.

As expected, the Texas 'stand your ground' legislation has critics across the nation. Never wavering from their incessant assault on the rights of individual citizens, particularly with regard to firearms, the Left Wing in this country views the proposed Texas law as the 'shoot thy neighbor' bill. The Boston Globe referred to the bill as a 'shoot first, ask questions later' approach to personal safety. Yet similar legislation across the country has gained broad support among the citizens and their legislators. 15 states have already passed similar self-defense laws since 2005, and another 6 states are considering such legislation this year.

One of the fiercest opponents to expanding self-defense laws is the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. It should be noted that the Brady Campaign has pushed Congress to pass some of the most oppressive restrictions on the rights of individuals in the history of the Republic. In the name of protecting citizens from gun violence, the Brady Campaign would prevent law-abiding citizens from using one of the most effective tools for stopping criminals--the exercise of their Second Amendment rights. In fact, the Brady bunch is on record supporting an outright ban of handguns, the preferred weapon of choice for most citizens when it comes to self-protection.

Zach Ragbourn, a spokesman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, stated, 'Changing the law opens the door to indiscriminate killing by people who later claim they feared for their lives. You won't be thrown into jail for legitimate self-defense. Monkeying with the law can only help people who would have otherwise been punished.'

The Liberty Sphere would like to know where Mr.Ragbourn has been all of these years as government officials have aggressively prosecuted citizens who exercised self-defense. The cases are too numerous to mention. And this does not even begin to address the countless litigation brought against citizens by the perpetrators of crime. Naturally Mr. Ragbourn and the Brady bunch would like for citizens to forget this assault on their rights by rabid gun-grabbers such as those involved in the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Apparently, the citizens and legislators in Texas and twenty other states have not forgotten. This is precisely why legislation such as the 'stand your ground' bill is gaining such widespread support. Ragbourn's contention that such legislation is not needed is ample reason to pass it. Perhaps Texans wish to nip in the bud the beast of the gun-grabbing rights-robbers before it reaches the point that citizens are placed in the precarious position of criminal and civil liability for merely using their firearms to protect their lives. In far too many states in the nation, self-defense as encapsulated in the Castle Doctrine has fallen on hard times. The Texas bill ensures this will not happen in Texas.

The Liberty Sphere believes that this bill needs to be considered by all of the states. And, if we ever oust the present Congress that is ruled by the purveyors of anti-freedom, this type of legislation should be considered as the official law of the land throughout America. This would stop once and for all the senseless, tyrannical assault on the rights of citizens, not only to keep and bear firearms, but to simple self-defense, not only at home, but in the workplace and in our autos.

As long as Democrats run Congress, such legislation, of course, will never be considered. But...we can bide our time. 2008 is on the way.

Washington, DC (TLS). Good morning!

Have a great day!

Renewed Calls for Assault Weapons Bans

Washington, DC (TLS). The Salt Lake terrorist attack by Bosnian Muslim Sulejmen Talovic has resulted in renewed calls for assault weapons bans. As always in cases like this, the usual suspects among the gun-grabbers and Leftist ideologues seize incidents such as school shootings, mass murders in shopping malls, and the like, in order to attempt to capture public sentiment at a vulnerable moment to advance their subversive agenda. That agenda is the disarming of law-abiding citizens in the name of keeping criminals from using guns.

Of course, the apologists for the Left will predictably claim that since Talovic had no history of violent activity, then the only way to address tragedies such as the one he perpetrated is to pass legislation restricting access to weapons among the general population.

Naturally, the Liberals will never acknowledge that it was a concealed weapon carried by a citizen who happened to be a cop off duty that stopped the killer. Had this hero not been present, had he not used the concealed weapon in his possession, then the carnage wreaked by Talovic would have been infinitely worse.

But let's cut right to the chase for a moment, shall we? Instead of making law-abiding citizens pay for the actions of a criminal minority, why don't we go straight to the source of these problems and acknowledge that extremist Muslims are intent on carrying out this type of attack and others like it, and we had best be getting ourselves ready for urban warfare against terrorists--warfare that will require citizens to carry and use their guns.

The same can be said for school violence. Administrators and others within school systems across the country need to be allowed to carry concealed weapons. A teacher armed with a gun would have stopped most mass murderers in schools long before they were able to get off a single shot in most instances.

Instead, in our politically-correct 'gun-free zones' we have left these areas wide open for criminals who don't give a flying flip about the law to bring in their weaponry, leaving ordinary citizens as sitting ducks.

Frankly, I am growing very impatient with these grand social designers of the Leftwing and their grossly illogical proposals for more anti-gun laws. These laws do not work, and two major studies by the CDC and the American Academy of Science prove it.

What DOES work is profiling. It is time to ditch the lame-brained politically correct approach to not identifying likely suspects for the fear of offending CAIR. The attack in Salt Lake was part of the Jihad. The young man who carried out the attack was more than likely a victim of Sudden Jihad Syndrome, which is growing rampant among Muslim young men around the world after they are exposed to the extremist rhetoric of Islamic Jihadists.

Here is a better proposal. Just as the cop in Salt Lake was allowed concealed carry, so should the citizens be afforded the very same right. In the absence of law enforcement personnel at crime scenes, the citizens need the right to defend themselves against the onslaughts of violent criminals. If anything, the Salt Lake case is an example for the need for the citizens' right to concealed carry.

More Sad Developments in Britney Spears Free-Fall

Washington, DC (TLS). The spectacle of Britney Spears cutting off all of her hair over the weekend is ample evidence that intervention by those who truly care for her is essential. Time is of the essence.

The latest example of the free-fall of the pop star is a very sad chapter in the saga of a woman who started as a sweet Louisiana girl who made good, but who came under the influence of the elite of the Hollywood-entertainment complex. For monetary gain these moguls of the entertainment world proceed to remake young starlets into nothing less than sluts who are then raped repeatedly by the media and the general public.

A hairdresser in the shop where Britney received her bald hairdo stated today in an interview on Fox News that the singer was determined to get the job done no matter what anyone in the salon seemed to think. In fact, at one point the hairdresser states that Britney stood up, grabbed a pair of shears, went into the back, and proceeded to shave off all her hair herself.

Then, it was off to a tattoo shop.

The erratic behavior is cause for more than just a bit of concern among those who know Britney best, according to published reports. In fact, a group of emails were made public on Saturday between a former associate/employee of the singer and a group of friends/family, indicating that people are worried--very worried.

My friends, this is not fodder for senseless gossip-mongering and snickers. This is a person's life hanging in the balance. Anna Nicole Smith should be a wake-up call to the fact that erratic behavior is often a precursor to a major meltdown, or worse, death. If Britney is not to meet Anna Nicole's fate, then somebody who knows and loves her must exercise some 'tough love' and make an intervention.

In cases like this, tomorrow could be too late.

How Long Can America Last?

Washington, DC (TLS). From 'Warchick' we find the following sobering analysis...a MUST-read!

How long does a Republic last? How Long Do We Have?

About the time our original 13 states adopted their new constitution, in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years . During those 200 years, these Nations always progressed through the following sequence:

1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. From spiritual faith to great courage;
3. From courage to liberty;
4. From liberty to abundance;
5. From abundance to complacency;
6. From complacency to apathy;
7. From apathy to dependence;
8. From dependence back into bondage

With that in mind, consider this:

Population of counties won by Al Gore vs. those won by George Bush in 2000:

Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million;

Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000

States won by: Gore: 19; Bush: 29

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore: 13.2; Bush: 2.1

In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won, was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country. Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off government welfare. The United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of democracy, with some 40 percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase. Pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake knowing that APATHY Is the greatest danger to our freedom.

I disagree; we are in between dependence and bondage. It will take only one large natural disaster or attack affecting the majority of people for martial law to be declared. Once the people accept that, it will never be repealed.-- SO SAYS WARCHICK, Resa LaRu Kirkland

Socialized Medicine the Cure?

Washington, DC (TLS). America's healthcare system may need some adjustments, but the proposals for socialized medicine, such as in a single-payer system, would plunge American healthcare into unmitigated disaster. The world's most advanced healthcare system does not need to be 'fixed' using the Left's prescriptions that are actually far worse than the disease.

Political/social/economics commentator Walter Williams has once again hit one out of the ballpark with his brilliant op-ed piece that lays bare the wretched effects of socialized medicine, such as we find in Great Britain and Canada. No matter what the Left tells you, do not let them hoodwink you into believing this would be the magic pill to solve all of healthcare's ills.

Socialized, single-payer healthcare is a train wreck waiting to happen.

More Telling Quotes from Hillary Clinton

Washington, DC (TLS). Hillary Clinton has a forty-year record of quotations that portrays an attitude toward America that is chilling. The young woman who was once a Goldwater Republican totally repudiated the principles that founded this Republic and embraced an ideology that was born out of the anti-American, pacifistic flower children of the 1960s.

The following quotations are very telling. Let's start with this one, which was given at the end of a campaign speech:

'God the bless the America we are trying to create.'

In other words, she cannot ask God to bless America as it now stands. If one reads the extent of Hillary's ideology from a number of publications through the years, the reason is not far to find. America is not a Socialist nation. Therefore it is to be abhorred. The only blessings she can invoke from God would be in the event that America is re-created in the image of Hillary--and of course, her atheist billionaire queen-maker, George Soros.

The other quotation that I will mention is much more famous, for it was uttered at a time when Hillary was the supposed 'first lady,' although it is hard to conceive of her ever actually thinking of herself in those terms. Scandal after scandal rocked the Clinton White House, one of the most striking being the Travel-gate scandal, in which Hillary was a key player.

Within this whirlwind of Clinton graft, Hillary stated the following:

'I am not going to have some reporter pawing through all our papers. We are the President.'

Thus, in truth, Hillary has already served her eight years in office while husband Bill was having a few aromatic cigars in the closet of the Oval Office. She is, therefore, ineligible to serve another term.

Terrorism in Salt Lake City

Washington, DC (TLS). Although the mainstream media and the Salt Lake police have been reluctant to correctly identify Mall killer Sulejmen Talovic as a Bosnian Muslim refugee, word comes today that the perpetrator's father believes his son had been adversely influenced by some unnamed entity. In an interview today a local Salt Lake television news affiliate reported that the elder Talovic stated that judging from the manner in which his son killed his victims and the manner in which he died, it is clear that he was being influenced by somebody, somewhere with malevolent intent.

Investigations into the possible motives of the killer, who was killed in a shootout with police at the scene, indicate that Talovic had been a faithful attendee at a local Muslim mosque. According to reports, Talovic had suddenly stopped showing up at the mosque about a month ago after reading material concerning recruitment of young men by Islamic extremists to serve in the worldwide Jihad.

These reports are as yet unconfirmed. However, a recent article in a major investment journal reported on the phenomenon which has become known around the world as 'Sudden Jihad Syndrome.' This phenomenon occurs in young men of the Muslim faith who had no previous record of violence, but after reading, hearing, or watching descriptions of the goals and objectives of Muslim Jihadists they will often suddenly and with no prior indication burst forth into a fury of random violence.

The Talovic case is eerily similar to another incident of sudden random violence on the part of a Muslim young man in North Carolina. As reported in The Liberty Sphere's exclusive report on Terror Cells in North Carolina, a 22-year-old Muslim by the name of Mohammed Taheri-azar plowed his vehicle into a group of students on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, injuring nine. The attacker wrote a local news reporter and stated that his motivation for the attack was the Koran. Taheri-azar is also a member of the Raleigh chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS).

Sudden Jihad Syndrome is a risk factor for young impressionable Muslim young men who are vulnerable to the inflammatory rhetoric of extremist Islamic factions, who are adept at recruiting young Muslims for the Jihad.

Thus, while the FBI, the mainstream media, and the local police fall all over themselves to avoid consideration of a link between the Mall attack and Muslim Jihadists, with each passing day it is appearing more and more certain that the Salt Lake attack was an act of Muslim terrorism. And with each squandered opportunity for the Department of Homeland Security and other law enforcement agencies to identify, track down, and arrest shadowy figures in the murky world of the Muslim Jihad, the nation edges closer to another major terrorist attack.
