239 years ago today, 56 brave men put their lives on the line (literally) with the treasonous act of declaring the independence of the 13 colonies from King George III. They were compelled to create a new country with individual liberty and freedom, without a central government or monarch telling them how to live their lives, with a freedom to pursue their own happiness and with fair representation of the people.
Celebrate with your friends and family today and think, if even for a moment, of all that we have and all that we can continue to create for future generations. And always, be safe in your celebrating!
Last year I did a special Independence Day show on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT in Philadelphia, PA, the home of our Continental Congress. Take a listen HERE
Time for Congress to stop selling out the American people and the time has come for all of us to finally recognize that President Obama really does not support Israel.
The vile, anti-American, Constitution-undermining, Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill passed and has been signed by the President (check out chapter 8 of my new book to learn more). Not only that, the President and his administration are openly refusing to support the pro-Israel language (another problem with legislation is mixing topics), which essentially blocks the anti-Israel, Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) movement. In other words, the President likes the corrupt TPA but not the part that supports Israel.
Who says the President hasn’t thrown Israel under the bus every chance he gets?
The one country in the Middle East that allows practicing one’s religion, freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, women’s rights, children’s rights, LGBT rights, and an open economic system. Israel is the one country the President doesn’t support. He’ll go out of his way to work with theocratically genocidal Iran, to open borders and normalize relations with oppressive Communist regimes like Cuba who harbor fugitive cop-killers, and supported the pro-Sharia anti-everyone else Muslim Brotherhood Egypt, but he won’t support the one country who shares our concepts of universal human rights.
I grant that the disputed territories are disputed and international law is unclear because of the way Israel won the territory in the 1967 war with Jordan (legal), but didn’t formally annex the territory (puts it in unclear legal area).
But that means the President should continuously kow-tow to the anti-Israel groups? It should not.
And the weak-kneed Congress ever focused on funding their re-election campaigns handed over their constitutional authority to authorize foreign deals with a two-thirds vote.
Liars & Whores is the story of one man’s journey to decode the political jargon of today and how it’s used to manipulate and even mislead us. From a tender age, when the author’s uncle and mentor offered him some of the pithiest and most sage advice he would ever receive, Ethan Bearman questioned the system. Emerging from his childhood up to his days in the military, when he was told that duct tape cost the army $50 per roll, Ethan Bearman developed his critical thinking skills, which allowed him to see the real world, not the fictionalized ones created by the powers that be. Ethan weaves these personal insights and revelations throughout the book, inviting the reader into the narrative in a compelling, thought-provoking and relevant way that only personal experience can convey.

“This system is broken: politicians whore themselves out for the campaign money or to line their pockets, and big businesses and unions are happy to funnel that money to the politicians for the specific agenda they impose while lying to you about how good it is for you.”
“Taking what big government and big businesses tell you at face value is costing you money and cutting into your pursuit of happiness. It takes only a little work to uncover the facts, and I’m here to show you how.”
“You can have a working understanding of the laws, deals, proposals and propositions that are swirling all around you. You can make sense of the ramifications and you can have a say in what happens moving forward in The United States of America.”

Watch this video and see what the problem is with Apple’s solar farm and what we really should be doing.
