Podcast of Insurgent Tribe on the Americhicks Radio Show

Check out this podcast interview of Americhicks' (Molly Vogt and Kim Monson) guest Keith Nobles with a brief explanation of why the Indian nations are referenced in the U.S. Constitution and how over time and various court and executive decisions the treaties were broken and freedom and property were taken from the Indian nations.  It is an excellent abbreviated explanation and worth listening to, especially the part where individuals were no longer allowed…

Notice the comments about "executive orders" and then later "Presidential Memoranda":…

Regulatory agencies and rules affect everyone at some point and it might be a good idea to know more about how they got started.  Here is a relatively short history of the act.  It looks like the text of the act may be linked at the end of this page.

Fraud issue in the ACA ("Obamacare") explained--watch out

There is an element of fraud built into the healthcare act ("Obamacare") that has not received much attention yet.  People who receive subsidies on the insurance exchange should be aware that if there is an error in the amount of the subsidy that person will be held responsible even though there was a direct payment to an insurance company.  There was a mention about this quite a while ago but not an explanation of how it worked.  This article does a reasonable job of…

Article: "The U.S. Is Right To Be Skeptical" by David Kopel

In the December 7, 2012, issue of the New York Times, David Kopel wrote an opinion piece about the recent U.N. treaty that was not ratified by the United States senate.  If you missed it, the treaty concerned persons with disabilities but there were some areas that bureacrats with the United Nations would fill in the details later--at least that was my understanding. 

 

Recently there was a video of Anderson Cooper grilling Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) on the failure of the senate…

"See No Evil" (Media avert eyes from campaign finance hypocrisy)

Matthew Continetti has written an article about a meeting that took place recently that was not covered by the media.  It is consistent with a group of people who is discussed in the book by Adam Schrager and Tim Witwer titled "The Blueprint:..."  The article simply helps draw attention to people and organizations that do not get enough attention.
