New Laws in 2024


A new set of state laws, including gun control, book bans, minimum wage, and gender transition care went into effect as the calendar flipped to 2024.  A growing number of states will require financial literacy courses in high schools, while a handful of others will add access to contraceptives by eliminating the need for physician prescriptions.  As state legislatures brace for another year of proposals broaching the country’s most divisive issues, here are some of the laws that will make it into reality in 2024.

U.S. Supreme Court Must Rule on States’ Blocking Trump from Ballot Prior to Insurrection Conviction


Maine’s secretary recently removed former President Trump from the state’s presidential primary ballot under the Constitution’s insurrection clause, becoming the first election official to take action unilaterally as the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to decide whether Trump remains eligible to return to the White House.  The decision by Secretary of State Shenna Bellows—a Democrat with skewed political views—follows a ruling earlier this month by the Colorado Supreme Court that booted Trump from the ballot there under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.  That decision has been stayed until the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether Trump is barred by the Civil War-era provision, which prohibits certain individuals who “engaged in insurrection” from holding office.

Special Post about the 60th Anniversary of the JFK Assassination


Had John F. Kennedy been re-elected, the CIA had more to lose than any other intelligence agency.  Kennedy forced Allen Dulles, Richard Bissell, and Charles Cabell all to resign by 1962.  The CIA had surveilled Lee Oswald for at least four years prior to JFK’s assassination yet claimed they had no idea who he was.  Documents prove he was a CIA agent and an FBI informant.  Even after the assassination the CIA still had control of all intelligence since Allen Dulles, who hated JFK with a passion was placed on the Warren Commission by LBJ.  Had JFK lived, there probably would not be a CIA as we know it.

Clandestine Modification of Rules and Laws by the U.S. Legal System Most People Do Not See


To the best of my knowledge, one thing that has never been reported in the mainstream media is how the U.S. legal system—which is the world's largest crime syndicate as I prove in chapter one of my second book that can be read for free—changes its rules of procedure and laws to suit its own narrative and harm unknowing litigants.  This post will be a case study of three different examples.

How a Government Shutdown Could Affect the Courts


Access to the courts is fundamental to our constitutional republic, but funding for the federal judiciary could run out at some point after a government shutdown.   What would happen should that occur is anyone’s guess.  What we do know is that a lack of funding for the courts could put the Constitution’s fundamental protections at risk.

Ethics Code Would Not Fix the U.S. Supreme Court’s Legitimacy


After all of the bad press the U.S. Supreme Court has gotten in the last few years, one might imagine that adopting an ethics code would be a reasonable solution to its ongoing issues, right?  Well, not so much.  If the point is to subject the justices to practical oversight and supervision, an ethics code would likely fall short.  The justices would likely end up supervising themselves.  Justices are already required by law to recuse themselves where their impartiality might reasonably be questioned.  As a practical matter, a code might encourage politicized harassment of the justices without truly subjecting them to any real source of external authority.

The Worst Organized Crime in America—Not What You Might Think


Organized crime is rampant in the United States.  It is growing and getting worse all the time.  It costs the commoner billions of dollars each year.  It steals property, rewards criminal activity, and destroys lives.  No, it is not the Mafia or the illegal drug trade.  It is our illustrious U.S. “justice” system.  As I prove in chapter 1 of my second book, it is in fact the world’s largest crime syndicate.  This post will discuss two idealistic ways—although unachievable without significant public outcry—that it can be defeated.
