There was a time when Americans stood united in outrage.

Driven by a revolutionary spirit to overturn an oppressive and tyrannical government, our ancestors fought tooth and nail to build a nation fortified by the principles of freedom.

Sadly, in the years since, we have somehow managed to work ourselves right back under a tyrant’s thumb. Only this time, the tyrant is one of our own making: the U.S. government.

“We the people” are still being robbed blind by a government of thieves. We are still being taken advantage of by a government of scoundrels. We are still being locked up by a government of greedy jailers. We are still being spied on by a government of Peeping Toms. We are still being ravaged by a government of ruffians. And we are still being forced to surrender our freedoms—and those of our children—to a government of extortionists.

Unfortunately, the bipartisan coup that laid siege to our nation did not happen overnight. Likewise, the problems we are facing will not be fixed overnight.

That’s why The Rutherford Institute continues to sound the alarm over government misconduct, push back against the menace of the police state, and hold government officials accountable to playing by the rules of the Constitution.

Still, we couldn’t do any of this critical work without you.

Your generous support keeps The Rutherford Institute on the front lines of the ongoing fight for freedom.

Together, we can turn our outrage into a positive force for change.

For freedom,

John W. Whitehead

What it Means to be a Law Enforcer . .

It is no accident that police have become more brutal – in appearance as well as action – since they became law enforcement.

The term itself is a brutal syllogism. The law exists and must be enforced because it isthe law. I am just doing my job, only following (lawful) orders. People were hanged for using such reasoning to justify the enforcement of vicious, evil laws and went to the gallows baffled as to why…..  Read More

Are doctors “Gods”?…..Government thugs medically kidnap child from new mom who was a victim of sex trafficking

MFP Commentary:
Since when have both doctors and police been  elevated to some sort of “God” that can take your child with zero due process?   Could you do this to someone? If not then you are looking at  “moral relativism”   a Satanic principle that permeates our government and society,  shockingly with enthusiastic support of the vast majority of so called Christians.

Another state-sanctioned kidnapping of a child has taken place in the “land of the free.” A Maryland couple recently had their newborn daughter forcibly stolen from them by Child Protective Services (CPS) after a pair of rogue pediatricians decided to report them to the state for alleged neglect – though no neglect was taking place.

It all began when first time parents Jennifer Guskin and Scott McFalls home-birthed their precious daughter Iris, who was born slightly underweight. As any good parents would do, the couple sought out answers from multiple pediatricians, none of whom were competent enough to notice that the young girl had a tongue and lip tie.

They continued their search until finding a doctor who seemed knowledgeable and understanding, but it was already too late. Because Iris was born at home somewhat unexpectedly, CPS was immediately alerted in accordance with Maryland state law. Everything from this point on would go downhill until Iris was ultimately seized from her loving parents and taken into state custody.

Wanting to do things as naturally as possible, Iris’ mother decided it was best to breastfeed her daughter on demand – meaning whenever Iris was hungry, Jennifer would feed her. But several pediatricians disagreed, urging Jennifer to feed Iris formula as well, which the little girl couldn’t stomach and repeatedly vomited up.

After going back and forth and cycling through several pediatricians, Jennifer continued to feed Iris naturally, giving her as much natural food as possible, only to see that her daughter was still not gaining weight. So they continued their search for answers, only to eventually receive an unexpected visit from CPS.

 One of the pediatricians whom the couple had “fired” for failing to help their daughter apparently called CPS to report “concerns about Iris’ weight.” This same pediatrician also accused the couple of “missing (their) appointment,” which was a lie as they had already indicated that they were seeking out a new pediatrician.

During this time, Jennifer and Scott had found yet another pediatrician who made similar recommendations about giving Iris formula, despite the fact that she wouldn’t drink it. This pediatrician didn’t seem to have any pressing concerns about Iris during the initial visit, and yet this is right around the time when things went strangely south.

CPS routinely steals children under false pretenses

The pediatrician in question called Jennifer and Scott later in the day after their visit, warning them that Iris wouldn’t “survive the week,” and that they should bring her to the emergency room several days later. Common sense would dictate that if a child’s life was in immediate danger that her parents should take her to the ER immediately, not on some future date – this strange situation prompting Jennifer and Scott to seek out yet another pediatrician.

But they wouldn’t get that far, as CPS would show up at their house just one day after the date they were told by that same pediatrician to take Iris to the ER. CPS officials accompanied by local law enforcement attempted to seize Iris right then and there with neither a warrant nor a judge-signed court order, to which they declined.

While all of this was happening, Jennifer and Scott finally figured out what was wrong, receiving input from people online during a Facebook Live recording that Iris had tongue and lip tie, and that this was preventing her from receiving proper nutrition from her mother’s breastmilk – something that none of the pediatricians they consulted bothered to notice.

In other words, it wasn’t on Jennifer and Scott that their baby was underweight. But they were still targeted by CPS, which used the excuse of “failure to thrive” to eventually take baby Iris from her parents, even though they did nothing wrong – not to mention the fact that Jennifer was a victim of sex trafficking as a child, having been separated from her own family. And as we’ve reported on previous occasions, this type of situation happens all the time, and typically with the excuse of “protecting children.”

Be sure to read Jennifer and Scott’s horrific experience in full at this link.

In the Age of Petty Tyrannies, You May Already Be a Criminal

Published on Jul 11, 2018

What happens when bureaucrats run the show and the rule of law becomes little more than a cattle prod for forcing the citizenry to march in lockstep with the government? Overregulation and overcriminalization. In this episode of On Target, John W. Whitehead examines the petty tyrannies and senseless laws that are turning everyday Americans into criminals.

FEMA’s Billing Code for Death by Guillotine is ICD9-E978

In a previous radio  interview with Steve Quayle, he said two very disturbing things. the first was how very close the Deep State is to totally taking over and second, that his research, from years ago, discovered that FEMA camps would become beheading facilities. I have since been told and have been able to confirm FEMA’s Billing Code for Death by Guillotine is ICD9-E978. This would be FEMA as in FEMA camp. With renewed interest being shown by the public in FEMA camps because of the Brownsville converted Walmart into a FEMA camp, this is a good time to bring this information out on the public.

Was Steve and a multitude of others correct? The publisher of the following video believes that Steve’s statement is true….. Read More

Kidnappers: The Tyranny of Child Protective Services Across the Nation

242 years ago American colonists declared independence from England, in the name of personal liberty.

What would it take for Americans to once again declare independence from an oppressive government?

For the colonists, it was excessive taxation without representation. It was also that English soldiers were quartered in their homes, as an occupying army. The English attempted to disarm them and shot into a crowd killing five in the lead up to the American Revolution.

Well, entire volumes could be written about the abuses Americans suffer at the hands of the government today.

But one especially egregious violation of rights is the state kidnapping children without due process…… Read More

People Keep Dying in Chicago as Politicians Stay Stuck on Stupid

MFP Commentary:

People that use the term “legal carry” have really swallowed the cool aide and are a huge part of the problem. Since there is no such a thing as illegal carry.  Can anyone tell me what legitimate crime is committed by anyone one just carrying a weapon? (and remember that a crime by definition has to have a victim)

The truth is that the cops are often the criminals. They egregiously violate peoples rights when they enforce any one of a thousand illegitimate “gun laws” In a just world we would be rounding up these criminals in blue just like we did the guards at Auschwitz, and for the same reasons.

Sure the psychopaths in the legislature that pass “gun laws” and are criminals, guilty of both treason and violating USC title 18 sections 241 & 242. The cops however are IMHO more evil in that they unlike the legislature are acting on their evil orders and directly harming people and their ability to defend themselves.

People Keep Dying in Chicago as Politicians Stay Stuck on Stupid

(Ammoland.com)-  The citizens elected you to office, but now your decisions screwed up the local economy. Working Americans left your city to find jobs. You replaced those voters with illegal aliens. After all, you didn’t want your political district hollowed out and eliminated. When you read the papers, or listen outside at night, you’re reminded that gangs shoot about 10 people every night.  So what do you do?

If you’re a Chicago politician, you blame something else, and anyone else, but yourself.

Chicago is a terrible place to do business given the layers of permits, licenses, regulations, taxes, fees and corruption. Small businesses and the middle class left long ago. Faced with that decline, the Chicago solution is to impose higher taxes and more regulations.

A Chicago politician can always blame the Trump economy for Chicago’s failures and its violence..except that the current economy is setting new record highs and taking millions of people off of food stamps. There is even record low unemployment for young minority men.. except in Chicago.

This is Chicago. You’re not hindered by the facts. The reporters won’t correct you.

If some reporter presses you for answers, you can blame racism.. even though minority members make up more than half of the Chicago City Council. Racism is a good enough answer for most reporters….. Read More

Mom Brought 10-Month-Old to the Hospital for a Cough—And Cops Kidnapped Him

MFP Commentary:

Ordinary “Criminals”  are not the real threat to our lives and liberty. We can shoot them if they decide to violate our rights. It’s the criminal thugs in blue that are the real threats, and the real criminals. We need a legal system (jury nullification?) that will protect our inalienable right to use lethal force against anyone, including the thugs in blue, that would kidnap our children with zero real due process like the thugs in blue do.

This also seems like a clear case of a violation of USC title 18 sections 241 & 242. “Conspiracy to violate rights under color of law.” Look it up… It’s a sad commentary that the thugs in blue can kidnap hundreds of thousands of children, many of which are being procured for deep state sexual trafficking, and people like me that see that it is morally justifiable to use lethal force to stop them, are considered “extreme” by many.   I see the people that sit idly by and allow this to happen as “extreme”.  Extremely evil that is.


St. Paul, MN — What began as a routine trip to the doctor for her child’s cough culminated in Amanda Weber having her ten-month-old son Zayvion being taken out of her home and put into foster care. This pattern of government kidnapping children has become such an issue in Minnesota that hundreds of parents have formed a group to fight it.

Weber’s ordeal began after she took her child to the hospital for a cough.

While the doctor diagnosed the infant with a cough, and deemed him to be in stable condition, he recommended that Zayvion stay. Instead, Weber decided to take her child home after inquiring if there was anything else that needed to be done or tests run.

“After waiting, I had asked to leave because I wanted to put my kids to bed and I had my three-year-old with me and I asked if there was anything else that had to be done,” said Weber. “They said ‘No, there was no other testing or anything that needed to be done.’”

In only a matter of days police were knocking on her door and took the child to the doctor – where Weber says there were already foster parents waiting in the room…… Read More

American Children Terrorized by CPS While Lawmakers Cry About Border Children

MFP Commentary:

Please read this entire story. I have yet to have met a “Christian” family that adopts kidnapped children, that has a clue as to the criminality, that CPS, the police, and the judges all go through in order to IMHO feed the sex trafficking pipeline, and to trample the rights of, and to destroy the American family.  For the most part CSP kidnapping of children by the state is wildly and enthusiastically supported by the “Christian” community.  It’s aberrant, and disgusting that they support such evil. But it’s what happens when you make the state your God.


Americans are in an uproar about illegal immigrant parents and children separated at the border. The level of hysteria surrounding this topic has reached a fever pitch with senators like Chuck Schumer mugging distraught for the cameras at every opportunity.

While the shrill voices shriek loudly about the rights of Mexicans and other assorted border jumpers, American parental rights are being stripped from them, unconstitutionally, every single day. (Chuck Schumer has yet to freak out about it on national television.)

American parents have lost their due process and Fourth Amendment rights, and most of them don’t even know it. Most anyone who has been visited by Child Protective Services can testify to the absolute terror that the state can inflict on a family for very little or no reason at all….. Read More
