Michael Boldin and Lesley Swann cover the news of the Tenther Movement – NDAA nullification on Jan Brewer’s desk, local activism and election strategies. John Lambert jumps on to chat about plans for the Texas Tenth Amendment Center going in to the 2013 legislative session as well.
Tom Woods returns to Tenther Radio in the 4th segment to talk education. He doesn’t just talk about how the education system in this country is bad, which we all know – but he’s building a new project that could help develop a model to beat the government school system…and do an end-run around the establishment.
“I am going to use the internet to go over the heads of a lot of these professors and I’m going to teach people real American History. With people I trust like Kevin Gutzman, we are going to teach real history, real economics , and where people can find the time? They can learn in their car. You can just get the stuff from our site. You can put it in your car and drive around.”
Paul Armentano from NORML is back on the show in the 2nd segment to talk about how Obama broke his promise to his base and has been extremely aggressive on medical marijuana in the states. But there appears to be some good news on that front too, primarily in Connecticut.
He talked talked about how Obama has backtracked on his earlier positive position on medical marijuana since he has started using the full weight of the federal government to harass medical marijuana providers and lawmakers. He stated, “They have in some cases have actually gone after lawmakers. They are actually threatening public officials of who simply were supportive of these programs and laws of their states. It was too long ago where the US Attorney targeted Delaware. Which recently passed medical marijuana legislation and where the state was about to begin licensing producers and distributors of medical marijuana. The US attorney on behalf of the administration went to the governor of Delaware and said, ‘if you guys actually implement this program as the regulations are set under the law we will go after you.’ and then the government immediately suspended the program.”
He added, “The federal government through the DEA and DOJ are using law enforcement resources that target, to raid, to arrest, and to federally prosecute individuals who are growing or distributing marijuana in these states which these activities under state law.”
When asked if other states are considering passing medical marijuana laws, Armentano answered, “Connecticut this fall will become the seventeenth state to enact medical marijuana legislation. There is a medical marijuana proposal in the state of New Hampshire that has actually passed both the Senate and the House, and it needs to go back to the Senate for a concurrence vote. There is no doubt in my mind that both chambers in New Hampshire will pass this bill. The question is, ‘What would the governor do?’”
