On August 15, 1971 Richard Nixon closed what was called the “gold window.” Since then, the purchasing power of fiat money has dropped 80% while gold has gone up from $35 then to the $1500 range today. Michael Boldin talks about what happened and how this has helped prop up the largest government in history - with some background starting in 1933.

You've been lied to. Again.

Despite what everybody tells you today, the notion of total, final, absolute supremacy of the supreme court is a myth.

Law enforcement lobbyists always oppose asset forfeiture reform, generally relying on the claim that seizing people’s stuff serves as a valuable crime-fighting tool. But a recent study conducted by a Seattle University economist for the Institute of Justice casts serious doubts on this claim, and many others touted by supporters of asset forfeiture.

With the idea of a federal "red flag" law passing gaining support in Washington D.C., we're told that this would only be for the most "dangerous" people. But, from the income tax to the "PATRIOT" Act, what we're told they'll use a new power for always starts small - eventually being used against everyone. John Dickinson, the "Penman of the American Revolution," warned us to "Oppose a disease at its beginning."

There are countless examples of the Founders calling for direct resistance and disobedience to either all violations of rights - or at very least long-standing ones. But yet, a significant number of allies to the Constitution and liberty reject this approach. On this episode, Michael Boldin explores the reasons why from the perspective of Mercy Otis Warren, the "Conscience of the American Revolution."

What was the "real" American revolution? Michael Boldin breaks down the answers - with 5 great quotes from leading founders like Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, John Dickinson, James Madison and John Adams.

Here we go. Big spenders Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi teamed up to ramp things up to another new level for Washington D.C. The bill passed by the imperial House last week increases discretionary spending from $1.32 trillion in the current fiscal year to $1.37 trillion in fiscal 2020 and then raises it again to $1.375 trillion the year after that. The deal will allow for an increase in both domestic and military spending. In other words, no spending cuts. The deal also includes $320 billion in additional spending over existing law and simply suspends the debt ceiling until mid-2021.

The federal government has a math problem. A big one. And math doesn't change its results based on the political party or goals of people adding things up. On this show, we've repeatedly covered how the feds lack the resources to do much - at least without significant help from the states. And the latest numbers from ICE have just come in. Will the results be the same for the ATF and other federal agencies?

"It's the law!"

A lot of people believe that if there’s a law on the books - no matter how unconstitutional or wrong - that the law needs to be enforced until it’s overturned in court or repealed by congress. Here’s a surprise for you - a lot of people are totally wrong.

We've all heard the claims - various clauses of the constitution, rather than limiting federal power, are used as a justification for more and more of it. From the necessary and proper, general Welfare and commerce clauses, to the preamble, federal “supremacy” and more – there are a lot to choose from. The hardest part about putting this list together was keeping it to just the top-five.

“A long, long time ago — 1803, if the storyteller is trying to be precise — in the famous case of Marbury v. Madison the Supreme Court of the United States created the doctrine of ‘judicial review.’ Judicial review is the power of the Supreme Court to decide the meaning of the Constitution and to strike down laws that the Court finds unconstitutional.”

And almost everything in modern "constitutional law" is based on a myth.

The "Necessary and Proper" clause of the Constitution is one of the most widely misunderstood - and abused in the document. Most modern federal regulations today are justified by the Necessary and Proper Clause - possibly even more than under the Commerce or general Welfare clauses. Now, here’s the irony of the situation: Far from granting “broad authority” to Congress, the truth is that the Necessary and Proper Clause grants no power at all.

But this is so far from the Founders' design, it's virtually unrecognizable.

Most people tell us the way to deal with violations of the Constitution is to “vote the bums out” or to “sue them in federal court.” Most people are wrong.

In our last 2 episodes, we shared two of our core principles - oppose a disease at its beginning and the first question that should be asked about any and every federal program. In this episode, Michael Boldin shares a 3rd - what should be done about unconstitutional federal programs. From Madison and Jefferson - to Henry, Adams, Hancock and more.

Good Morning Liberty: June 24, 2019

"Oppose a disease at its beginning" was the message from 5 leading founders in last Friday's episode. Today, we look forward to TAC's 13 year anniversary (on Tue June 25) by focusing on our approach to every government proposal, policy, act, regulation, or "law." That is - start out by asking the most important question - the only one that needs to be asked in most situations.

Good Morning Liberty, Fast Friday: June 21, 2019

Supporters of the monster state - and a "living, breathing" Constitution - argue that it must be flexible to “change with the times.” Other people turn a blind eye to violations of the Constitution because they like the program being implemented, or don't want to oppose their preferred party or politician.

All these people choose to ignore repeated warnings from the founders about the danger of this. On this episode, Michael Boldin covers what five Founders had to say over a number of decades.

Unlike criminal forfeiture, where property is taken only after a criminal conviction, civil forfeiture allows law enforcement to take property from innocent people who have never been formally accused of a crime, let alone convicted of one. This flips the notion of due process on its head.

With the Supreme Court being in the news right now - finishing its term in June and shaping its docket for the next one that begins in October - Michael Boldin avoids the specific cases and digs into broader, more philosophical questions.
