  • The Mischiefs of Corruption

    ArticleVBlog ^ | March 9th 2020 | Rodney Dodsworth
    “All tyrannies,” wrote Algernon Sidney, “had their beginnings from corruption.” He drew most of his illustrations in Discourses Concerning Government from the Roman experience, which, in little over a hundred years, fell from the heights of ancient liberty and virtue into the basest tyranny. The reward for high public service in republican Rome were honors typically bestowed upon victorious generals by a grateful people. Sidney related the Roman’s steadfast attention to the rule of law. Prior acts of selflessness for the public good did not cancel out subsequent crimes against the public good, “and none can be exempted from the...
  • Sharyl Attkisson explains why one FISA warrant on one person can lead to spying on thousands of people

    The genuine magnitude of the FBI spying on the Trump campaign (or Adam Schiff’s getting ahold of the phone records of journalists and fellow representatives) was far greater than most people realize, reading or hearing about a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page. Many people naturally presume that an operation to trample on the rights of one man – even an Annapolis graduate who served as a source for the CIA – was bad, but not a major spying operation. After all, Page was not a top-level campaign advisor but an unpaid volunteer. So, what’s the big deal? ......

    Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby delivered an assist that one fan won't soon forget. As a salute to Veterans Day weekend, Crosby decided to give back to his community Friday by gifting a new car to a local Army veteran. Crosby presented the 2019 Honda Passport Elite, which he won for earning MVP honors at last season's NHL All-Star Game in January, to Madeline Malizio, who has served as an Army specialist for the past five years. Malizio, a 28-year-old single mother, was one of 10 veterans who were invited to attend the Penguins' practice and receive a tour of...
  • Algernon Sidney’s Advice for Article V Opponents

    Our Founders’ textbook to revolution was Algernon Sidney’s Discourses Concerning Government. Alongside John Locke’s Two Treatises of Government, these famous works were refutations of another influential 17th century book, Patriarcha by Sir Robert Filmer. In Patriarcha, Filmer invoked the Bible to defend the English monarchs’ divine right to rule. Among his arguments, he painted dire consequences to the established order if the people ever attempted to limit kingly prerogatives. In the background to these works was the 1649 execution of King Charles I. Monarchists could point to the subsequent short-lived English commonwealth, a volatile republic with a written constitution and...

    A bombshell revelation was barely noticed at National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s hearing Tuesday, when his counsel revealed in court the existence of a Justice Department memo from Jan. 30, 2017 exonerating Flynn of any collusion with Russia. The memo, which has still not been made available to Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell, is part of a litany of Brady material she is demanding from prosecutors. The memo is currently under protective order and Powell is working with prosecutors to get it disclosed, SaraACarter.com has learned. U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan presided over the hearing Tuesday and set a...

    Two little-known men had enormous influence during America’s runup to revolution. Algernon Sidney (1623-1683) and Saul Alinsky (1909-1972) were students of history and political science. Both advocated revolution when necessary, but toward opposing ends. In his Discourses Concerning Government, Sidney set out lessons learned since Biblical times in the hope that future generations would recognize and reverse emerging threats to free government. He encouraged men to be skeptical of their magistrates and institutions in order to improve them, to prod them always back toward the first principles of the nation. When the admirer of Sidney saw corruption, his first impulse...

    Will Hillary’s hatchet man be up for White House job if she wins? I have a lot of problems with the Benghazi committee, such as the right-wing canard suggesting that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the CIA are somehow responsible for the tragic 2012 death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens. But I also have problems with people who dismiss the Benghazi hearings in their entirety as nothing more than a partisan witch hunt, which is the standard approach by most big media. To take one recent example, The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank, in a typically...

    Traffic lights in Sydney, Australia were modified to create gridlock forcing frustrated motorists into a controversial toll tunnel. Testimony yesterday in a New South Wales, Australia parliamentary inquiry into the Cross City Tunnel uncovered evidence of significant engineering alterations made in an attempt to force motorists onto the toll road. Opposition leader Peter Debnam charged the Labor government with adjusting signals at 400 intersections along Williams Street and other nearby roads in such a way as to create additional gridlock. In January, Debnam's formal Freedom of Information request for full data on traffic light timing changes was rejected on the...

    Dec. 20, 2005 22:32 | Updated Dec. 21, 2005 0:30 Not quite so 'clear and simple' By MARK STEYN What's the deal with these riots in Sydney? You switch on the TV and there are scenes of urban conflagration and you think, "Hang on, I saw this story last month." But no. They were French riots. These are Australian riots. Entirely different. The French riots were perpetrated by - what's the word? - "youths." The Australian riots were perpetrated by "white youths." Same age cohort, but adjectivally enhanced. And, being "white youths,"they thus offered "a chilling glimpse into the darker...

    (Source, Charles F. Adams, ed., The Works of John Adams [1851] Vol. 6, p. 3-4)There have been three periods in the history of England, in which the principles of government have been anxiously studied, and very valuable productions published, which, at this day, if they are not wholly forgotten in their native country, are perhaps more frequently read abroad than at home.The first of these periods was that of the Reformation, as early as the writings of Machiavel himself, who is called the great restorer of the true politics.  The "Shorte Treatise of Politick Power, and of the True Obedience...
