Occasionally I post links to some of the latest enlightening articles I have come across. Here are some recent ones.
Judge Andrew Napolitano asks, Did Obama spy on Trump? He explains how Obama could have gotten around the NSA (and thus circumvent the law) and gotten into its database via the British equivalent of the NSA, the GCHQ, and says that “Sources have told Fox News” that Obama in fact did do that. “So by bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints.” Here is a video of the Judge explaining on Fox News.
Ron Paul’s USA Today column that whistleblowers are heroic and patriotic.
Jeff Deist says that President Harry Truman was right about the CIA. (So was JFK.)

Jim Davies has an interesting article on guns, to arm, or not to arm? I don’t agree with every specific point, but I do agree with most of it.
And Laurence Vance has written a new book on gun control and the 2nd Amendment. On the Amazon page summary, it states:
These nine essays appeared in a variety of places online during the period from July 2010 to March 2017. Throughout these essays, there are ten things relating to gun control and the Second Amendment that resonate: 1. Criminals aren’t deterred by gun-control laws. 2. The Heller and McDonald Supreme Court decisions didn’t institute gun freedom. 3. The Second Amendment has no exceptions. 4. The Second Amendment is irrelevant. 5. The right to keep and bear arms is a private property issue. 6. The Constitution authorizes no federal gun laws whatsoever. 7. The ATF shouldn’t exist. 8. The Second Amendment hasn’t prevented a single gun-control law from being passed. 9. Most Republicans are enemies of the Constitution and the Second Amendment. 10. The answer is gun freedom.
And here is Laurence Vance’s recent article, asking, Does the Second Amendment even exist? He also has this thorough essay on “Republicare,” the Republicons’ attempts in Congress to “replace” (i.e. replicate) ObamaCare. And another recent article on misconceptions about discrimination.
