Dr. Tom Woods: Interview with a Zombie

Tom Woods talks about his new book Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century...with a zombie.

Stay tuned to mainstream television for more zombies. Information on Tom's Nullify Now! tour below:

Think You Can't Stop Washington's Radical Agenda?
Yes You Can!

Did you know that states don't have to obey unconstitutional federal legislation forced upon them?

Virginia, Utah, Idaho, and other states are fighting the federal healthcare law. Arizona is protecting its borders. Washington State, Oklahoma, and Tennessee are fighting cap-and-trade legislation. Eight states are standing up for gun rights. Twenty-five states have effectively blocked the 2005 Real ID Act…and more…

How? Through nullification.

Nullify Now! is a multi-city event tour focused on education and activism on a state level to say NO to unconstitutional federal “laws” – which, in reality, are not laws at all.


World-class speakers like Thomas E. Woods will be on hand to explain just what nullification is, and how it works - both in history and right now.

Woods, who is the NY Times Best-selling author of Meltdown and The Politically-Incorrect Guide to American History, has his latest hit on sale now. In Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21 Century, he explains:

When a state 'nullifies' a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or 'non-effective,' within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as that state is concerned

Through historical writings, case studies, and speeches by the Founding Fathers, Woods builds a logical, moral, and constitutionally sound case for nullification, revealing:

  • How we can roll back Obamacare, stimulus spending, and other unconstitutional expansions of federal power through nullification
  • Why the Founding Fathers believed that nullification was the "moderate middle ground," not the road to secession
  • Why the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution gives the states the power to nullify unconstitutional laws
  • Why states - not the Supreme Court - should arbitrate disputes between the states and the federal government over the constitutionality of the federal government's actions.

Other speakers in various locations include Jack Hunter of the American Conservative Magazine, and Jim Babka, president of DownsizeDC.

As Thomas Jefferson said, there is a "rightful remedy" to the federal government's uncontrollable quest for power - it's called Nullification

I've watched this like 5 times..

and it's both entertaining and excellent factual information every time. I've forwarded to several friends.

I think this is a great way for Woods to get out his talking points this way without actually going out to the MSM... plus he is using ridicule fairly well to make the MSM look like a joke. Brilliant.

Peace, Freedom and Prosperity. Not War, Welfare and Bankruptcy.


Nobody does the Zombie Circuit like Woods

Kudos, Tom! Points well

Kudos, Tom! Points well made! Can't wait to get your book and see you in Orlando!


Too Ecletic, Too Obviouse, but not specific enough?

It was obviouse the Zombie was Woods himself, and in recent context, the ambush of Rand Paul.

If I did that (if I had the creativity, wit and will) I would have had a male & female zombie that had distinguishing characteristics of Rachel Madow, Chriss Mathews, or/and Olberman to mock the MSM.

Nevertheless, Kudos!

If states rights are resurrected some are going to get alot

more than they have bargained for, especially if the state's own constitution is lacking in protection of unalienable rights.

The Liberty a society retains is inversely proportional to the number of Lawyers in the Government.

That's where the Fourteenth Amendment comes in.

In a nutshell, the federal constitution (through the Bill of Rights) sets a baseline of rights afforded to citizens of a state. A state can afford its citizens greater protections and rights, but it cannot diminish them.

"Free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions." Thomas Jefferson, Kentucky Resolutions of 1798

You're assuming the

You're assuming the Constitution is actually going to be followed. Plenty of states are guilty of not following the Constitution I.E. Arizona's new immigration law I would argue is anti-5th and 4th amendment.

Granted that states may stumble; but

we the people have a far greater chance of living in freedom and peace if there are 51 choices instead of one big behemoth telling us all what to do when how where, and draining us of resources with no possible legal recourse and no justice. Also it would cut down the military so we wouldn't have that fetid, immoral swollen, overgrown tick draining away literal human lifeblood in endless wars and tentacles erecting fortress bases all over the world.

What you're saying sounds

What you're saying sounds great until you think of a Proto-Democracy like ancient Greece, and it's city states. Then suddenly it doesn't sound like such an attractive idea. Reduction in military? Not if a state that's already fairly spartan decides to stay that way. Texas and its boatload of military bases would be a good candidate for it.

Someone is probably going to be quick to point out that our Constitution makes us a Republic and not a Democracy, so before they do I just want to remind them to re-read this discussion from the beginning and keep things in context.

How goofy

This zombie get up. You'll never get credibility this way. you might as well be interviewed by Peter Pan.

It's a spoof

The zombie is a stand in for the zombies on the mainstream media.

Get it?

He's the man.


Zombies = MSM = Glenn Beck

Got it!

Drop the other shoe please

Okay, so states have the duty to disobey federal laws that are unconstitutional...and have done so many times.

That's neato information but, so what?

How are we, the people, supposed to do anything with this nullification information?

Let me guess, tell others about it and encourage our representatives to nullify certain federal laws.

Well, ain't that just jim-dandy. Contacting our representatives has done so much for us in the past.

The knowledge may not change an iota of "The System" or

our representatives' corrupted mind.

But, IT, the knowledge, may give us the intellectual rallying point to act with love, understanding and confidence in LIBERTY. . . as Ron P always says.

It's all about liberating us and our loved ones from the sense of doom, fear and desperation, methinks.

Great point.

Great point.

Tom Woods is a historian. I

Tom Woods is a historian. I don't think it's right to expect him to draw conclusions for you. I think you might be trying to reach outside the box a little here.

Boru: Stop making logical points

Of course voting and lobbying has worked to secure lasting freedom and abdication of self-rule is the KEY to attaining.....self - rule, hmmmm. *scratches head*

Hold on.....

No....no, you see....

If you just go to the free-market ballot box .....and.....and

Well Hell!!

Understand that it works in court too.

Let your friends and neighbors know that, as members of a jury, they can disregard the law as well.

Roberty Murphy is awesome

and they say libertarians aren't talented actors

Jeff Riggenbach

Great narration! The voice of all the best libertarian authors has a great sense of humor and excellent delivery.

Excellent pre-emptive strike against the REAL *MSM* zombies!

Can't wait to receive the two copies Amazon sent out 8 hours ago. . . I think we need 20 more copies ASAP to hand out to our family and friends.

that was great

i wonder if they got all that on the first take. woods did a great job, never came close to cracking up.


Brought to mind the thread the other day about making the Revolution a "laughing matter". This is the path to victory folks!

Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Viva La Revolucion!

morning bump

for Liberty.

AWESOME. That was great and


That was great and bold creativity.

I hope the media know this is at them.


lol, excellent. I love'd it when he was reading the passage in his book and then panned in on the Zombie. The expression was great, rolling eyes and dazed look!

So good

I think this Zombie term is gonna stick. As it should!

ahahahaahhaha :D

Excellent interview :D!

This was insanely clever! As

This was insanely clever! As others are saying, this makes great Liberty points, while poking fun at the brainless nature of the MSM in actually dealing with those points.

Here is a great example of a past Zombie moment we all can recall:

When RP was in one of the debates and the issue of non interventionism (and what motivates the terrorist) was first addressed by the good Doctor (what was to become the famous Paul vs Giuliani moment), the MSM moderator initially chimed in with, "Congressman, didn't that change on 9/11?" This zombie question threw RP at first. "What changed?" And the MSM zombie replied "The non interventionism."
Think how stupid this is. RP was saying that our interventionist policies motivated 9/11, and this zombie turns it clean around, suggesting that our policies became interventionist because of 9/11... a complete reversal of the cause and effect chain that RP was pointing out.

May this video be seen coast to coast... especially by zombie lovers everywhere!

I hope this goes viral.

Surely there is a pent-up demand for zombie interviews out there ;-)

New Hampshire and Ecuador.
