The New Space Race Will Be Lead By A Space Force

What does a country with over 700 military bases in over 130 countries do next? What could possibly be the last remaining Superpower’s next move having already conquered global dominance through its military might? An expansion, of course. This time the threat is inter-galaxy. Or is it interstellar? I better brush up on my, what use to be considered as Sci-Fi talk, because it looks like I may need to know the lingo now with America, or Earth, getting a Space Force! Yes, a Space Force. Remember our reactions when Newt Gingrich talked about the need for a Mars exploration during a Presidential debate? Well, President Donald Trump’s announcement Monday wasn’t that of expanding space exploration, or even a new mission to hopefully uncover new technology. Nope, the silliness of this administration hit a new laughable level with his revealing of a new “Space Force.” Continue reading “The New Space Race Will Be Lead By A Space Force”

The Growing Pains of a Third Party

Written by Michael D Jacobsen

For years many people have been disappointed in the two-party monopoly that has plagued modern politics. The corruption among both parties had come to a boiling point. The frustration with the two major parties began to find itself struggling over crucial issues relative to the party. After the 2012 Presidential Campaign and leading into 2016 election, voters started to leave the major parties and join a lesser known party called the Libertarian Party. The initial surge in growth of the party was fueled by Republicans who were fed up with how the party treated Ron Paul in 2012. New arrivals to the Libertarian Party also included Democrats who did not like how Bernie Sanders was treated in 2016. Of course, when these two groups try to unite under one banner, there are going to be some substantial ideological problems that will arise. I think most people who joined liked the idea of less military spending and less foreign policy by way of war. There are many issues that plenty of people who joined agree on regardless of what party they were with before. Continue reading “The Growing Pains of a Third Party”

The Revolutionary Knowledge Of Jury Nullification

By: Michael D. Jacobsen

It is a term which terrifies lawyers. A word which some of them as well as judges deny exists. Yet exist it does, the term is jury nullification. It is a long-held and fundamental right of the American people you will hear few talks of it. If you are selected for jury duty, there is an excellent chance that the team of attornies will disqualify you if you speak of it. People have been arrested outside of courthouses because they were informing people of what it is. Why is jury nullification a threat to the system if the purpose of the system in the first place is justice? The fair and impartial justice that is represented by the Lady Liberty Statue standing with a blindfold on showing no partiality to a side, just a focus on the truth. In her hands are the scales to bring balance and a sword in the other hand to represent fair punishment.

So what is jury nullification, and why is it such a seldom heard term in our vocabulary? Jury nullification is the acquitting of a defendant by a jury in disregard of the judge’s instructions and contrary to the jury’s findings of fact. In other words, if the jury feels the law itself is wrong, they can render a verdict of not guilty because they think the law itself is wrong. This is one of the greatest weapons we the people have against unjust laws.

The Identity Politics of the Social Justice Warrior

You have already seen it a thousand times. The person who thinks that their single issue should be able to trample over the rights of everyone else, and you are a racist/bigot/monster if you think otherwise. The even sadder part is that more and more people are agreeing with that person. Welcome to the era of the Social Justice Warrior.

The idea of being a Social Justice Warrior or SJW for short is not a new one. Nor is it necessarily a bad thing. There are many causes that a person can get involved in to advance a social issue. Gay rights, equality for men and women, preventing hatred against blacks are all worthy causes. Yet the problem lies in putting any of these over another person’s right to choose for themselves. The government can legislate many things, however, it cannot legislate behavior. The truth is, like it or not, that people have a right to prejudice no matter how distasteful it is.
