We are extremely pleased this week to be able to bring you one of the world's foremost authorities on the Constitutional Militia, which is a key element of the mechanisms of freedom and security in the United States, and which could also serve as a model to copy, for freedom-loving people anywhere in the world. Few Americans even know there is such a thing as a Constitutional Militia, much less what it really is. Even many who want to defend and preserve the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution do not understand that a major reason for the existence of that amendment is to make possible the functions of the Constitutional Militia. It is not only about individual self-defense, though allowing individuals to protect themselves and others is one of its outcomes. There is a reason that the word "militia" is demonized by U.S. media under the control of government and global corporations. It should give us a powerful clue to how important it is to us to find out what it really is.
Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr. holds four degrees from Harvard University including Ph.D and J.D. He is a frequent contributor to News With Views, where many of his articles can be seen. He is also the author of many articles in scholarly journals, and is the world authority on the U.S. Constitution as it relates to money and banking. His two-volume work on money and banking is called Pieces of Eight. Also a world-class expert on the Constitutional Militia, the main subject of this show, he is the author of books on that subject including The Sword and Sovereignty and Constitutional Homeland Security, both highly recommended as sources to bring Americans up to speed on this extremely essential subject which is intentionally ignored in American public education.
