    I am a Democrat and an atheist. I used to be able to comment on RWN. Now I am unable to. I never was rude or nasty, I only debated with fact and questions. What are you afraid of Mr Hawkins, the truth?

      This is the same problem I have ran into. If you were not rude in your discourse, if you were meaningful and self assured, not psychotic in your presentation of an opposing view, then most likely you were not what guys like this want to paint the opposition.

      Not all speech is “free” speech, you treacherous libtard Democrap. Committing treason by voting Democrap is UN-American and you should NOT be able to come here and dispute things that are the TRUTH.

    Just read an incredible book called ‘The Police Revolt of 2016’ by Lawrence C. Mackin. This book predicts everything that is happening in America today and pretty much what you guys have been saying too. From the stirring up of cop hatred by the likes of Sharpton and Eric Holder, to the behind the scenes plans of the Obama Administration. If you read nothing else this year, get this book. It’s a spell binding eye opener.

    Dear Mr. John Hawkins. I am a person on Facebook, and I can see you RIGHTWINGNEWS is posting images of 9/11 with it’s own captions. As a grieving person of 9/11, as so many others who have lost loved ones, I would greatly appreciate your images with phony captions be removed from Facebook and not posted again. Thank you.

    Sorry mister Hawkins, What part of you are a liar that i stated in my comment on an article was it that you don’t understand that got me blocked from commenting on the facebook page?

    Was it a reference to the lie about your article on ‘Mohammad’ being the number 1 baby name in the UK (when the source article you listed clearly stated it was round about 5th)…. or was it when you attacked transgender teenagers…

    Help me out!

    Oregon Standoff Overshadows True Meaning of the Property Clause and the Constitution

    Original meaning of Constitution twisted into a cudgel for state power

    Let’s forget Ammon Bundy and the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation for a minute. It’s a sideshow overshadowing the real issue and allowing the liberal corporate media to portray constitutionalists as gun-toting fanatics.
    The real issue boils down to private property and the federal government. Liberals and other defenders of the power of the state over the individual assume the government owns the majority of land in the West and it graciously allows ranchers to use it provided they pay reasonable fees. If challenged on this premise, liberals usually cite the Property Clause in Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the Constitution.
    Proponents of state power over the individual argue the Property Clause permits a centralized federal government to hold state lands for a variety of reasons–presently and popularly for liberals to preserve wildlife and the environment–but this interpretation (known as the “police-power theory”) runs counter to the original purpose of the clause.
    Thomas W. Merrill, a law professor at Columbia Law Schools, cites a court ruling to explain the original concept of the Property Clause:
    A leading nineteenth-century exposition of the constitutional authority of the federal government over federal lands, Fort Leavenworth Railroad Co. v. Lowe (1885), is generally consistent with [the original understanding of the Property Clause]. There, Justice Stephen J. Field wrote that the authority of the federal government over territories is “necessarily paramount.” But once a territory is organized as a state and admitted to the union on equal footing with other states, the state government assumes general sovereignty over federal lands, and the federal government has the rights only of an “individual proprietor.” The federal government can exercise rights of general sovereignty over property only if there has been a formal cession of sovereignty by the state under the Enclave Clause. Justice Field qualified this vision of separated sovereignty, however, by noting that if the federal government acquires land outside the Enclave Clause, any federal forts, buildings, or other installations erected on such land “will be free from any such interference and jurisdiction of the State as would destroy or impair their effective use for the purposes designed.”
    The Enclave clause limits federal government ownership of land to “Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings,” including post offices and post roads.
    A better understanding of the issue can be had by reading Robert G. Natelson’s Federal Land Retention and the Constitution’s Property Clause: The Original Understanding (University of Colorado Law Review, 2005).
    “The Enclave Clause was sold to the ratifying public on the basis that enclaves would be relatively small. Holding massive tracts of undeveloped land (such as in Yosemite National Park, nearly 750,000 acres) as enclaves is not what the Founders had in mind,” writes Natelson.
    Under this original and subsequently diluted understanding of the Property and Enclave Clause—most recently with the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976—the Bureau of Land Management has no right to hold land and should have long ago disposed of it. (Moreover, it can be argued, the BLM itself is an unconstitutional and therefore illegal entity.)
    Unfortunately, due to the impulsive behavior of Ammond Bundy and his crew in Oregon, the corporate media has aggressively pushed the government’s stance on the Property Clause and its unconstitutional domination over millions of acres of land around the United States.
    It is indeed unfortunate the Constitution—misread and turned into a cudgel for state power with the help of the corporate media—has been overshadowed by the irresponsible actions of a gang of self-defined patriots who are doing absolutely nothing constructive for the cause of individual rights and private property.
    Instead, they have allowed the media to portray constitutionalists and other advocates of liberty as little more than armed fanatics bent on starting a war with the federal government.

    As a conservative//libertarian I think Right Wing News sucks. It is the internet supermarket tabloid. Wild, eye catching headlines that are either terribly misleading or outright lies.
