Rundown at Valley Forge: The Shutdown Feds Are Coming

Once again, we see the “shut down” federal government going to extra lengths to hammer American citizens who simply want to enjoy their property and their heritage.

There is a Zionist Answer to PalArab Terror

In January, 2005, I wrote a chapter in the first volume of my trilogy, “Politicide: The Attempted Murder of the Jewish State”.

However, as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, these incidents are far from isolated.
