Mises and Madison

"With respect to the two words 'general welfare,' I have always regarded them as qualified by the DETAIL of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a METAMORPHOSIS of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators." -April 20, 1831 Letter from James Madison (dubbed Father of the U.S. Constitution for his role in drafting of the text; see also The Federalist Papers, published on behalf of the American system as one of limited government of by and for the people of A Free Republic)~

"MODERN CRYPTODESPOTISM, which arrogates to itself the name of liberalism, finds fault with the negativity of the concept of freedom. The censure is spurious as it refers merely to the grammatical form of the idea and does not comprehend that all civil rights can be as well defined in affirmative as in negative terms. THEY ARE NEGATIVE AS THEY ARE DESIGNED TO OBVIATE AN EVIL, NAMELY THE OMNIPOTENCE OF THE POLICE POWER [OF GOVERNMENT], AND TO PREVENT THE STATE FROM BECOMING TOTALITARIAN." -Ludwig von Mises in chapter 21, The Theory of Money and Credit~

Muslim Mommy Dearest

"Referring to the scene of carnage in Boston, she has described it as a “really big play” with “paint instead of blood.”
Reality, meanwhile, tells a different tale: we now know that Zubeidat was on the terror watch list along with her son. She was on a federal terrorism database a year-and-a-half before the Boston massacre and authorities now, unsurprisingly, see her as a person of interest in the case.
It has also emerged that Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 between her and Tamerlan in which the two vaguely discussed jihad. They raised the possibility of Tamerlan going to Palestine, but the son told his mother it wasn’t a good idea because he didn’t speak Arabic. It’s beneficial to know the language of the populace, after all, before one detonates oneself in its midst."

Plus: Actor Dwight Schultz, Politichix Director Ann-Marie Murrell and Nonie Darwish, author of 
"The Devil We Don't Know: The Dark Side of the Revolutions in the Middle East" discuss the way that the Muslim World does not take responsibility for its violence and how the current leadership establishment in US government and society doesn't want Americans to understand the true nature of jihad in Boston.
