With federal spending and the national debt already at dangerously high levels, the Trump administration just posted another milestone: The biggest budget deficit since 2011. On today's Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin talks about the ramifications of this crazy spending and Ron Paul's warning that a huge meltdown is inevitable.

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin discusses one of the greatest challenges for the Constitution and liberty - a willingness, or lack of it, of people who believe in liberty to take a stand in support of it. Is this a consistent pattern in human nature? The “Muse of the American Revolution” sure thought so.

Follow the Constitution and refuse to participate in or enforce federal acts that violate the document - and some people will claim you're promoting "anarchy." Setting aside the fact that they're misusing the term, things are actually the other way around.

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin discusses two common objections to our work at the TAC. First, from conservatives who claim that efforts to pass nullification bills are a waste because government “already has the rules in the constitution.” And second, from libertarians who quote a 19th century anarchist who blamed the loss of liberty on the constitution itself.

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin discusses the latest update from President Trump on a new federal bump stock ban that he's personally pushing through - without opposition from the NRA. He also covers a strategy response that states and local communities should take to protect the right to keep and bear arms from federal violation.

In Thomas Jefferson’s view, running up huge debts in the name of “funding” was a massive rip-off of future generations. He wrote:

"The principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale."

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin discusses the source of rights. Recently, popular podcaster and YouTuber Steven Crowder visited Texas Christian University (TCU) to set up shop on a public sidewalk, challenge some views, and do some filming. The result? A lot of people were upset, and TCU gave a public statement that shows one of the "Top 100 Universities" in the country has no clue about the source of your rights or the foundation of the constitution.

Jefferson: Quote of the Day
https://twitter.com/TenthAmendment/status/1048656638335434752

Did you know, your rights don't come from the Constitution? Or even the Bill of Rights? Today, we’re talking about the source of your rights – and how you defend them.

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin discusses the undeniable fact that the debate over the next Supreme Court justice has focused almost no attention to his views on the Constitution. As both Judge Napolitano and TJ Martinell argued in recent columns, this is a leading sign of an institution with far too much power - and a decaying empire.

While all eyes are distracted by the Kavanaugh political circus, other things keep getting worse. On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin discusses the latest numbers from the US Treasury. Only one president in history has ever increased the national debt more than Donald Trump. And spending keeps going up too. As Thomas Jefferson put it, this is “swindling futurity on a large scale.”

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin goes through 6 questions that are absolutely essential to ask any supreme court nominee - and actually any potential federal judge. They might seem basic, but since the Court has repeatedly failed to uphold the Constitution, getting back to the basics is a must.

Plus the news that Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) just updated their policy about how airport police will handle TSA and passengers trying to do just that.

On this episode of Tenther Tuesday, Michael Boldin and Mike Maharrey discuss the massive amount of spending and debt that’s being piled up year after year – plus a ramping up of the surveillance state.

Ignorant comment of the week
https://business.facebook.com/groups/837491733024301/permalink/1961965120576951/?__tn__=-R

On Sept. 19, 1796 George Washington published his "Farewell Address" - a letter to "friends and fellow-citizens."

While most people focus on his advice about political parties, religion, education, and foreign policy - his advice on violations of the Constitution, which he called "usurpations" might have been the most important.

It was originally published in the American Daily Advertiser with the title "The Address of General Washington To The People of The United States on his declining of the Presidency of the United States." It was almost immediately reprinted in newspapers across the country and later in pamphlet form.

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin discusses “Constitution Day.” 231 years ago today the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had drafted. But today, it appears it’s little more than a day of deceit.

On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, host Michael Boldin discusses former Pres. Barack Obama's big return to the public sphere, where he attacked "cynicism" and called for more "transparency and accountability."

But, as Jim Bovard notes in his latest USA Today column, how can anyone take him seriously, when his administration did as much or more than any previous to ramp up the total state?

Plus it's Friday, so ignorant comment of the week!

quote of the day
https://twitter.com/TenthAmendment/status/1039889116773531648

Under the Constitution, a war is a war whether they call it a war, or not.

Pre-emptive strikes and undeclared offensive military expeditions are not powers delegated to the executive branch in the Constitution, and therefore, are unconstitutional. Thomas Jefferson stated this quite eloquently when, in 1801, he said that, as President, he was “unauthorized by the Constitution, without the sanction of Congress, to go beyond the line of defense.”

The unconstitutional federal gun control acts of 1934, 1968, 1986 and 1988 violating the 2nd Amendment are still on the books and being enforced by Washington D.C.

When Obama was in office, GOP state legislatures pushed back. Once he left, they virtually stopped.

"There’s really only one conclusion that I can draw from this, and it shouldn’t be a surprise. The GOP cares more about party politics than it does about your right to keep and bear arms and the Second Amendment."
