An Interview With Ilya Ponomarev By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer On March 20, 2014, contrary to the will of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ilya Ponomarev cast the sole vote of opposition when the Russian State Duma voted 445 to 1 to annex the Ukrainian region of Crimea. He stated that it was his duty to do this as a matter of principle. Within a few months, he was summarily stripped of his legislative immunity from prosecution and exiled from Russia. Although still officially a Duma member, he is now is working to organize a more formal opposition to Putin from within the Russian Diaspora, outside of the country. Currently residing in the US, Ponomarev in a VOX interview, reveals the forces behind renewed Russian expansion, the roots and limits of Putin's power, possible future changes in store for Russia and answers the question of why President Putin is not afraid of Read more

by: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer The Dog Panel hearing in the Jake and Nancy Smith case, involving their pet, "Millie" is scheduled for 7 p.m., Monday, April 13 in the Sussex County Council Chambers, located on 2 The Circle in Georgetown, DE according to a 4/7/15 article in the Cape Gazette. "Millie", a white and brown Jack Russell Terrier mix, alleged to be a dangerous animal by a few of Smith's neighbors, is reportedly being held incommunicado at the First State Animal Shelter, located on 32 Shelter Circle, Camden, DE 19934. We are unable to confirm this due to a judicial gag order, issued in this case. The panel is charged with determining the dog's ultimate fate, up to and including possible euthanasia. Read more
By: Wolf von Baumgart, Staff Writer A judicial gag order has been issued on all parties concerned in the case of litigation of John "Jake" and Nancy Smith (plaintiffs) against Delaware Animal Care and Control, filed in Delaware Superior Court over possible illegal impoundment of their dog, "Millie" under guise of authority. Attorney John Brady, representing the Smiths contends that the 1981 state statute that excluded Sheriffs and Sheriff's Deputies from certification as police offices by the Delaware Council on Police Training also did not include animal control officers as police officers. The litigation essentially argues that only sworn and certified police officers can legally execute arrest and search and seizure warrants under the present Delaware Code, Title 11, Chapter 19. Both Kent and Sussex Counties have contracted animal control services with the First State Animal Read more

I have given a link for the Declaration of Independence in its entirety because it is too long to print here but have included the part that has generated the most discussion. IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle Read more
Let’s establish a few things right off the bat, as they say: First, the Korean War, that began in June, 1950, never actually ended. There is no formal treaty, no truce, simply an armistice, the same kind that ended World War One. The Korean War never ended, but actual hostilities were curtailed under a cease-fire on July 27th, 1953 at 10:00 AM local time. Second, North Korea, which calls itself the “Democratic Republic of Korea,” is obviously neither democratic, nor a republic. It is, in fact, a monarchy. The “founder” of North Korea, Kim Il-sung, was a Soviet puppet and delusional Stalinist who actually believed his own prevarications and propaganda, as he believed that of his mentors, Stalin and Mao. He passed power, without input from “the people,” directly to his son, Kim Jong-il, who, in turn, passed it to his son, Kim Jong-un, who is the sabre-rattling Read more
NYC now wants to restrict pain relief in the ER. If your drugs are stolen or lost, good luck. If you cannot get into a dental or primary care physician in 3 days, too bad. Big brother knows best. But Mr. Anderson 173 people died of accidental overdoses in 2010 out of 2 million taking such prescriptions. Don't we have to do something? Yes, provide more treatment and education. More people die from being given the wrong treatment, getting murdered, work and auto accidents, or drinking. Most of those people choose to abuse those in combination with alcohol or other drugs. Millions of others should not suffer because some will be irresponsible. The irresponsible will just go to more dangerous street drugs or more alcohol. Such restrictions do not fix anything. In fact, they are the exact opposite direction that we need to go. Welcome to big brother, I guess the book should have Read more
Unable to stop the international drug cartels, some are trying to focus on the sick and suffering's pills. In Utah, a home was raided to confiscate a dead cancer patient's drugs while her husband was still mourning at her side. Read the story yourself. Seniors with daily pill cases and the recently departed need to be left alone. We need to focus on dangerous, impure, and uncontrolled substances. The focus on safer prescription medication only drives people back to unregulated street drugs and hurts our ability to relieve suffering. The solution here is to enlist the morticians in a voluntary drug disposal plan that can be offered at the time. Following the incident, Mahaffey asked Vernal city officials and police administrators why officers would search his home without a warrant. He said he was told the Utah Controlled Substances Act provides authority for the search. According Read more
Saul Alinsky’s book. “Rules For Radicals,” was first named “Rules For Revolution,” and has caused untold controversy since Alinsky published the book in 1971. I realize that one post will not be enough to communicate the content of destruction this book holds for our Republic. When I first bought the book, I vowed to read it cover to cover before donning my pencil to write even one word. Alinsky opens in the book’s prologue by writing, “The revolutionary force today has two targets, moral as well as material. Its young protagonists are one moment reminiscent of the idealistic early Christians, yet they also urge violence and cry, “Burn the system down!” Alinsky’s tactics were based not on Stalin’s revolutionary violence, but instead on the neo-Marxist strategies of Antonio Gramsci, an Italian communist. Relying on gradualism, infiltration and the, “dialectic Read more
Over two hundred people poured into the Millsboro Fire Hall, Thursday night to hear a presentation of the United Nation's Agenda 21, also known as "Sustainable Development." The plan for for "One World Government that George Herbert Walker Bush called the, "New World Order" was about to begin. The 9-12 Delaware Patriots hosted Maggie Roddin to present the two hour Agenda 21 presentation, Her radio website is: http://www.theunsolicitedopinion.com President Obama signed his 86th Executive Order (13575) on June 9 that established the White House Rural Council that seems to be in line with the United Nations radical Agenda 21, and it is designed to begin taking control of almost all aspects of the lives of 16 percent of the American People. In 1992, President Bush signed the Agreement for the Administrative Implementation of Agenda 21 and another 178 Nations also signed on. The Objectives Read more
Read about the emergency powers that most do not know that our government has. It is the reason that I got involved in the 10th amendment movement around 1993. The chains of tyranny are being forged everyday. I am not stating this as my opinion. I am presenting it as an interesting one.
I have long believed that the mathematics of an insatiable entitlement society in the U.S. guarantees a runaway inflation, which likely would be followed by anarchy and chaos – a perfect excuse for government to resort to strong-armed totalitarian measures to “restore order.” My model has always been Germany’s Weimar Republic in the 1920s, where runaway inflation brought Adolf Hitler to power.
