  • America's Greatest Gold Heist

    John Martin|Jun 1, 2024

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of several ruthless U. S. presidents who has been grossly overated by numerous historisns. If his ratings had been based on the quantity of his actions, they could be considered correct, but based on the devastating harm that he did to our nation much of the time, they were very, very wrong. In fact, if we wanted to rank our presidents correctly, with rare exceptions, the best ones were the ones who did the least—who refused to tamper with our constitution a...

  • Elon vs the UAW

    John Martin|Apr 1, 2024

    Nearly everybody knows that Elon Musk does not like unions—just like he does not like oppressive big government and other violators of free markets and individual liberty. Although purported to be enforcers of fair wages and safe working environments, unions tend to be invasive, coercive, and sometimes criminal. The United Auto Workers is one of them. There is no question that the UAW is lusting to get its meat hooks onto America’s newest, greatest, most prosperous, and most valuable aut...

  • The Invasion of the Destitutes

    John Martin|Mar 1, 2024

    Right now, America is suffering from the greatest invasion of foreigners in its entire history. Our borders are now so porous, they are utterly ineffective in keeping out many of the world’s most dangerous people. Just this past year, some three million migrants—nearly all of them penniless, destitute peasants—have poured across our southern border, overwhelming our barricades and security forces. An estimated 30 million more are still waiting in Mexico for their turns to assault it and take...

  • America's First Nitrogen Execution

    John Martin|Feb 1, 2024

    This past January 25, Alabama established a new milestone to implement the kindest, safest, simplest, and most practical method of execution known to man—nitrogen asphyxiation. Oklahoma was the first state to adopt this new procedure. In April 2015, Governor Mary Fallin signed a bill to allow it, and on March 14, 2018, Attorney General Mike Hunter and Corrections Director Joe M. Allbaugh approved it as the primary method of execution. In March 2018, Alabama became the third state, after O...

  • The Threat from Hamas

    John Martin|Jan 1, 2024

    Just before dawn on Saturday morning, October 7, 2023, about 4000 people gathered in a remote part of southern Israel north of the Re'im kibbutz, about 3.7 miles east of Gaza and began celebrating the last day of the Sukkot holiday with a Supernova music festival. Organizers had promised a "journey of unity and love" with dance, music, art, and drinks. The people were happy and cheerful as they danced and prepared for the gala event. Without warning, Hamas militants arrived in motorized...

  • The Legacy of Lyndon

    John Martin|Dec 1, 2023
    2

    In my November article about the JFK assassination and others, some people might conclude that Lyndon Johnson’s misdeeds, or at least most of them, had already been covered. After all, his assassinations alone were worthy of a dozen public executions. What more could he have done? There is much more—as Amazon would say it, “A Truckload More.” LBJ was not a nice man by any stretch. He was a heavy drinker and had no qualms about maintaining simultaneous sexual partners. He was very ill-man...

  • Who Killed JFK?

    John Martin|Nov 1, 2023

    This month marks the 60th anniversary of the most controversial presidential assassination in American history—that of John F. Kennedy. It stands supreme in suspicions of corruption and cover-ups. In spite of tons of evidence to prove otherwise, the official historical record still claims that it was planned and performed by a lone assassin—Lee Harvey Oswald. Even today, there are still people who believe he acted alone. Evidence clearly shows that Oswald was actually a patsy to divert att...

  • Tascalusa's Burial Ground

    John Martin|Oct 1, 2023

    This month marks the 483rd anniversary of Hernando de Soto's great battle at Mauvila, a location that so far has not been found and examined. But one thing that has been discovered is a small mound complex that yielded the graves of important natives who had fought there, possibly including the great chief, Tascalusa. The Pine Log Creek site (1Ba462), in the Alabama-Tombigbee Confluence Basin, might have seemed to be a routine native-American burial at first, but it has turned out to be a...

  • Funeral Ripoffs

    John Martin|Sep 1, 2023

    Have you ever thought about what goes on in the funeral industry? Have you ever wondered why just about every product and service related to a funeral is grossly overpriced—with a price that is often not even disclosed until after the family is stuck with paying it? Welcome to America's most extreme price gouging—gouging that is MANDATED BY LAW. In our early days, families took care of their own according to their own traditions and religious beliefs. Procedures varied widely. Some might see...

  • RAPIST BEWARE

    John Martin|Aug 1, 2023

    **The views of submitted editorials may not be the express views of The Alabama Gazette** Rape is one of the most heinous crimes a man can commit against a woman. It has existed since before the dawn of history and has remained a serious problem in many parts of the world right until the present day. A 2001 WHO study revealed that 20% of women worldwide had been rape or attempted rape victims at least once. In 2011, the CDC said that one in five women in America are sexually assaulted, and more...

  • The National Debt Catastrophe

    John Martin|Jul 1, 2023

    A debt ceiling crisis is a phenomenon that occurs on a regular basis in our crazy spendthrift Congress. Since its members are spending other people's money, the great majority of them relentlessly throw it around without any consideration about the consequences imposed upon our country's economy. Then later, when the bills come due, and they discover that they have already spent beyond their Constitutional limit, they plead for another increase in our national debt ceiling. And if they don't...

  • STOP THE MEGA PRISONS

    John Martin|Jun 1, 2023

    Before you even read any farther, take a look at this short video. It is absolutely FRIGHTENING. https://www.facebook.com/InsiderNews/videos/760507585303195/ This is a new mega-prison in El Salvador, especially designed to house and punish the country's vicious drug gangs. Look at them—handcuffed, leg shackled, and herded like cattle. Think about it. Would you want anything like this in YOUR state, in YOUR county, or anywhere NEAR where you live? Even when locked in prison, could you feel s...

  • The Rise of Tesla

    John Martin|May 1, 2023

    As long-range battery technology advances by leaps and bounds, there is no question that the popularity of electric cars and trucks will rapidly advance in the next few decades, due primarily to far greater fuel economy and expected shortages of petroleum and possible cutoffs from OPEC and other hostile countries. Ford, General Motors, Toyota, and many others are ramping up production. But one company is far ahead—TESLA. It makes ONLY EVs. In July, 2003, Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning f...

  • Electric Cars

    John Martin|Apr 1, 2023

    Electric cars are not new; they have been around for more than a century. According to Wikipedia, the first one was built by Robert Anderson in the 1830's. In 1884, Thomas Parker built one and equipped it with “his own specially-designed high-capacity rechargeable batteries.” In 1888, Andreas Flocken created a “Flocken Elektrowagen,” which some people claimed was the first “real” electric car. In September, 1910, two Bailey Electrics completed a 1000 mile endurance run from New York to Mount Wa...

  • The Waco Holocaust

    John Martin|Mar 1, 2023

    This Month (March, 2023) marks the 30th anniversary of one of America's most hideous examples of terrorism and mass murder. Although there have been some others with greater death tolls, this one entailed unconscionable cruelty. The raid on David Koresh and the Branch Davidians by the ATF and FBI at Waco, Texas was a perfect example of something our government should never do under any circumstances. Besides constitutional and ethics violations, these people, under the authority and direction...

  • The Tyrants Strike Again

    John Martin|Feb 1, 2023

    Here we go—another dirty trick from the Biden regime. Back when he hired his new army of 78,000 new IRS agents, nearly tripling the roughly 45,000 we already had, greedy Joe Biden claimed he was only going after “the rich tax cheats.” Now we have the proof that his real targets are poor people—specifically the poor WORKING people. In my October article, I already mentioned that tax collections from wealthy people, in spite of their much higher tax rates, generate only a tiny fraction of the rev...

  • Our Congressional Report Cards

    John Martin|Jan 1, 2023

    After a disputed, bitter, (and in several cases possibly fraudulent) general election this past November, let’s take a look at what we might expect for the next two years. We could ask ourselves, “What happened to the expected red wave? Why did so many Democrats win elections that had been in Republican strongholds?” The clear evidence points directly to the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe vs Wade combined with large numbers of extreme social hard-liners in many states recently pushing for dr...

  • Environmental Madness

    John Martin|Dec 1, 2022

    For the past several decades, the news media and others have reported dire warnings about what we must do to protect the world we live in. Today, the big claimed bugaboo is “climate change.” Politicians worldwide claim that our consumption of fossil fuels (petroleum and coal) is destroying our planet with “greenhouse gases.” Their proposed “solution” is to force all of us to switch to “sustainable” sources of energy and implement a “carbon tax” to enforce it. Climate change is real. That’s natur...

  • The Libertarian Alternative

    John Martin|Nov 1, 2022

    On the 8th of this month, we will be going to the polls to vote for and against various candidates in this year's mid-term general election. For some offices, we won't have much of a choice-the lesser of two evils-typically a lack luster Republican against an even more lackluster, if not tyrannical, Democrat. That is the routine of many elections, and this year is no exception. Nearly all of our really fine candidates met defeat in the Republican primary. These include our brightest star, Mo...

  • Biden's Amazing Inflation Machine

    John Martin|Oct 1, 2022

    From 2017 through 2021, under the Donald Trump administration, America’s inflation rate remained steady at about two percent annually, a rate that will underwrite a strong, robust economy. But after the beginning of Joe Biden’s regime, reckless government spending and meddling cranked it up to 7% in 2021 and 8.5% so far into 2022. Why did it happen? The handwriting is right there on the wall. Joe Biden’s ruthless and abusive tampering with our petroleum industries produced the expected short...

  • The Demise of the Butterflies

    John Martin|Sep 1, 2022

    What has happened to our butterflies? Have many people even bothered to notice? On a typical summer day, how many do you see? Up until about 1980, anybody could step outside in most places and spot a dozen or more in a few minutes. Since then, gradually at first, their numbers have diminished, and the decline has continued every year. When we passed Y2K, it began to accelerate. Finally, in mid-summer 2021, the remaining 10% of our butterflies suddenly almost completely disappeared, even in...

  • Biden's Waterloo

    John Martin|Aug 1, 2022

    Beginning on January 20th of last year, America has been suffering from the reckless and devastating actions of Joe Biden, our most destructive and incompetent president so far in this century. On his very first day in office, he signed a multitude of punitive executive orders that have thrown our nation into a tailspin of rampant inflation and dependency for many essentials, especially petroleum and its derivatives. Prior to Biden, under the blessings of Donald Trump, America’s oil p...

  • Overpopulation

    John Martin|Jul 1, 2022

    In a mere two centuries, the human population on our planet has jumped from an estimated one billion people in 1804 to eight billion this year (June 2022)—a milestone right on schedule with the fictional movie, Soylent Green. Statistics like this have been scaring people for many years. Even back in 1798, Thomas Malthus wrote about the prospect of mass starvation, death, and social unrest if we don’t bring its explosive growth under control. Then in 1968, Paul R. Ehrlich wrote an alarmist boo...

  • Copyrights and Copywrongs

    John Martin|Jun 1, 2022

    Editor’s note: This article discusses the copyright issues that the Alabama Gazette and other publishers might encounter that is very important, especially in today’s easy access to the world wide web. It is so simple to snag a picture here and there seemingly floating around on the internet. And everybody does it, so why not? It won’t hurt anyone, right? Well, it’s best to live by the old adage: “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.” In the case of copyright infringement, it is a situ...

  • Throw the Bums Out

    John Martin|May 1, 2022

    For nearly four years, we fed-up Alabama citizens have been anxiously waiting for this May 24th Republican primary to clean up our political nightmares—rotten politicians who had earlier promised to follow the fundamentals of our U. S and state Constitutions, individual sovereignty, and minimal government intrusion. Instead, they have corrupted their ethics, their duties, our state, and our nation. As I have said in the past, I keep wishing for gubernatorial, legislative and local elections e...
