Welcome to our Online Community
Thank you for visiting the Selous Foundation website. We hope you will visit regularly as we keep the site updated with the very latest information about the fight for American sovereignty and independence.
Since our founding, the Selous Foundation for Public Policy Research has fought to protect and promote American sovereignty…the right to govern ourselves within our own borders under a constitutional framework guided by First Principles and limited government.
Today, the Selous Foundation is needed more than ever. We hope you will join us in this important fight.
IRS abuse of power and the re-election of the president
Should anyone doubt the purpose of these recent revelations that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeted conservative Tea Party and patriotic grassroots groups such as the Glenn Beck inspired 9/12 groups seeking tax-exempt status from the government? Cast all skepticism aside. Be advised there was a single purpose to this act of unmitigated government tyranny…
Congress Must Act to Defund UN Bodies Like UNRWA
The U.S. provided $130 million to UNRWA in 2013. UNRWA’s continued operations in Gaza would not be viable without American funding. Congressional investigations and condemnations have led nowhere. UNRWA has adopted neutrality policies, but it has refused to put up a firewall between it and Hamas. And it can’t, because it has become an arm of Hamas. UNRWA is on the front lines of the Hamas War in Gaza.
Trade Promotion Authority Not Free Trade Utopia it Seems
Thirty-five of the 36 House Republican freshmen in Congress have said they would like to provide President Obama with “Trade Promotion Authority” (TPA), which would allow him to “fast-track” the negotiation of reciprocal trade agreements, instead of wrangling through the specifics with Congress. Ostensibly, it would make free trade agreements easier to implement.
Rohrabacher: California is the Model, if Amnesty Passes
“If we have amnesty, the breakdown that has happened in California will be the model of what happens to the whole country,” said Republican Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, in an exclusive interview with SFPPR News & Analysis. Should Congress grant amnesty, Rohrabacher, who represents Southern California’s 48th congressional district, projects…
Christians in the Middle East Face Genocide
Where is America led by President Obama? You, Mr. President, have surrounded yourself with advisors loyal to the International Muslim Brotherhood. You have spent billions of American tax-payer dollars to support them. You spoke strongly on their behalf every time you felt that their rights were in jeopardy. Why can’t we see you offer the same support to the Christians of Mosul? Noon is the Arabic letter that represents…
Conservatives Introduce "TEA" Highway Bill
While Graves, Lee and Rubio may believe they’re offloading their federal gas tax revenue problem to the states, in reality, they’re seeking to compound the problem 50-fold; the states aren’t any better than the feds on transportation funding. We should not be encouraging more tolling of any kind, whether at the federal or state level. Tolls are a tax. The principle of “pay-as-you-go”…
Foreign investors cannot hire, fire, or pay Cuban workers directly. They must go through the government employment agency which selects the workers. Investors pay the Cuban government in dollars or euros and the government, in turn, pays the workers a meager 10% in Cuban pesos. Corruption is pervasive, undermining equity and respect for the rule of law.
It appears conditions are right for the U.S. to export oil and gas in significant amounts to Europe. This would be not only economically favorable to the U.S. but politically very favorable to Europe, since it could largely replace in the medium term an unreliable source of energy supply from Russia by a much more reliable and friendly source, the United States.
Opposition to the controversial private Blacklands-Northeast Gateway Toll Road from Garland to Greenville east of Dallas kicked into high gear last week when concerned citizens did a full court press to pressure remaining cities and counties to pass resolutions opposing the toll road. Seven cities had already passed resolutions prior to Tuesday. Those cities include Fate, Josephine, Lavon, Nevada, Rockwall, Sasche, and Wylie. The Rockwall County Democratic Party also passed a resolution opposing the tollway.
