The John Birch Society has been dominating in the area of preserving the U.S. Constitution! State after state, America has been proving that it is not the Constitution that is the problem; it is the politicians who are not abiding by it. The latest state to join the list of successes is Nebraska. The Nebraska Legislature Bill 1058, which was titled the “Adopt the Faithful Delegate to federal Article V Convention Act,” failed on April 5, 2018, in effect halting Con-Con proposals, such as LR6 (a COS Con-Con application) in Nebraska for this year.
Big government can be suffocating: With unwarranted taxes, fraudulent surveillance, federal laws and regulations, deceitful politicians, outrageous spending, and the dictation of healthcare, education, and the environment, it’s only natural to need to come up for some air. And many start to look at the situation without hope. But you’re not alone in feeling the frustration that nothing you do will make a difference.
Trade policy all the way to 2021 rests on whether or not Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) is extended. The bad news is President Trump just took steps to extend it. On March 21, 2018, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) announced President Trump’s request for the extension of TPA.
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)’s timeclock is ticking! Mexico and Canada have been pushing to get the agreement completed by April, while U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer is hinting that the U.S. might abandon the deal and replace it with two bilateral trade deals. On the other side of the coin, Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo stated the whole deal could change if the U.S. exits. According to an article from Reuters, Guajardo said:
Every single day, the federal government continues to overstep its bounds by passing and enforcing unconstitutional acts, while We The People are burdened by more government. The time is long overdue to break free from this runaway federal government. Some might ask, “But how? It’s too complicated of a job to accomplish.” The good news is the solution has been in the Constitution the whole time! By implementing Article VI, an informed electorate can be created and unconstitutional acts can be nullified.
Disarmament Continues As a United Nations Goal.
The John Birch Society was founded by Mr. Robert Welch to preserve the independence of the American people and the Constitution. Part of this mission was to expose the people behind the movement to destroy our Constitution, naming names, with the communists only playing a part in this role.
Brought to the table a couple of years ago, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) were trending topics of discussion. And rightly so! International trade deals like the TPP have the inherent capability to bring about economic integration that will destroy sovereignty, while the TPA grants unconstitutional power to the president for him to easily negotiate and then get the approval of Congress for such deals.
Finally, some of the United Nations’ hidden crimes are coming to the surface. For decades UN “peacekeeping” officials and troops have been getting away with raping and sexually abusing an estimated 60,000 children and women all over the world. While many naïve Americans stand behind the UN as the organization that brings about world peace, most of these predators have been slipping away from retribution.
“There is always a desire for commerce, but there is great danger in forming alliances that really have very little to do with trade and have a lot to do with the accumulation of power, particularly international power through regional institutions, such as the European Union, and worldwide institutions, such as the United Nations,” states The John Birch Society CEO Art Thompson in his book, International Merger by Foreign Entanglements.
