It looks like the Federal Reserve-induced auto bubble just popped. Yesterday, GM announced plant closures and layoffs due to sluggish sales. The big automaker said it plans to shutter five North American factories and slash around 14,000 jobs. The move follows on the heels of an announcement by Ford in October that it will cut an unspecified number of salaried employees. Morgan Stanley speculated Ford may pare more than 20,000 jobs from its global workforce.According to the New York Times, slowing sales served as a prime driver in GM’s decision to slash its operations.Part of the retrenchment is a response to a slowdown in new-car sales that has prompted automakers to slim their operations and shed jobs.”Most people give the sitting president the credit or the blame for what’s going on in the economy. In this case, the current administration does shoulder some of the responsibility for the problems in the auto industry. The NY…

Vaccine mandates generally have their basis in federal recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most Americans believe that the CDC’s guidelines are carefully crafted, based upon unbiased and thorough scientific research, and that they will keep us safe. This narrative isn’t necessarily true.Because of their misplaced faith in this federal agency, most people assume there is no need to push back against federal narratives on vaccines or against anticipated federal vaccine mandates. In his important new book, Vaccines – A Reappraisal, Richard Moskowitz, M.D., provides information which should thoroughly refute these assumptions.Dr. Moskowitz is a family physician who received his BA from Harvard, Phi Beta Kappa, his M.D. from New York University, and a U.S. Steel Fellowship in philosophy at the University of Colorado. He has been in private practice since 1967 and, with over fifty years of expe…

AUSTIN, Texas (Nov. 26, 2018) – A “Constitutional Carry” bill prefiled for the 2019 legislative session would make it legal for Texans to carry a concealed firearm without a license, and foster an environment hostile to federal gun control.Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) prefiled House Bill 357 (HB357) on Nov. 14. If passed into law, it would end Texas’concealed carry licensing requirements and remove the need for government permission to carry a concealed firearm in the state. The new law reads in part:Except as otherwise provided by this chapter or other law, a person 21 years of age or older who is not prohibited from possessing a firearm under Section 46.04 or other law is not prohibited from carrying:
(1) a concealed handgun; or
(2) a partially or wholly visible handgun in a holster.The legislation also provides legal protection from unreasonable police interference for those carrying a concealed weapon.“A peace offic…

Your Trump tax cut isn’t going to be quite as big as you might have thought.According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, a new inflation measurement included in the GOP plan and recently implemented by the IRS will cut into your tax cut savings in 2019.Ron Paul warned you about this during the debate over the tax cuts. The WSJ cited Congress’s Joint Committee on Taxation estimates projecting that a new inflation measure included in the GOP plan will result in a slower rise in the annual standard deduction than would have occurred under the old tax system. According to the Tax Foundation, also cited in the WSJ article, a married couple’s standard deduction in 2019 will come in about $150 lower than it would have been under the old inflation-adjustment model.While this won’t significantly raise your tax bill this year, over time, the inflation calculation will erode away the benefit of the tax cuts. According to the Tax Fou…

Despite the procedure’s moral repugnance and our emotional reaction to it, a federal court got a female genital mutilation case right when it struck down a federal law banning the practice. The Constitution does not authorize the Congress to pass such a law.In what has been criticized as a “major blow to the government,” U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman struck down a federal law prohibiting female genital mutilation (FGM). When I first read the headlines, my initial thought was that he did so on grounds of “religious freedom.” I was pleasantly surprised to see that he based his opinion on the correct reasoning that Congress lacks the Constitutional authority to pass such a law in the first place.Two Michigan doctors and six others were charged last year when they arranged to have the procedure performed on nine girls. Four were brought to Michigan from Illinois and Minnesota. According to the New York Times, the families i…

This blog is featured in the latest Tenther newsletter, which everyone in the nullification movement gets daily or weekly. Be one of them – and Become a member here to support the TAC.A lot of people misunderstand the nature of their rights. The source.To the Founders, an understanding of NATURAL RIGHTS was essential. These rights pre-exist any government or document or decree.They knew that when the people view and understand their rights as a birthright rather than a gift from government, they’re much more likely to ignore government attempts to restrict or end them.Thomas Jefferson put it this way:“A free people claim their rights, as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.”In other words, we the people need to learn how to exercise our rights whether the government wants us to or not.At the Massachusetts ratifying convention, Theophilus Parsons reinforced this view:“No power was give…
