The Government Will Now Compel Your Spit To “Bear Witness Against” You

Swab DNA Now

 Swab DNA Now

The United States Supreme Court has taken away your Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate and “bear witness” against yourself. The government has been given the right to “compel” your DNA to “indict” you without a “Grand Jury”—even if the arrest is a minor charge!

If you think violent criminals receiving more protection than victims is insane, that’s nothing compared to what the high court has done to citizens—again.

The Supreme Court’s latest 5-4 ruling on Maryland v King, or as I prefer to label the ruling: “Abusive Encroachment of Power by the Government Over the People,” has further violated innocent, law-abiding citizens by giving police power to contravene the Fifth, as well as the Fourth, Ninth and Fourteenth by swabbing the mouths of every arrested American—no matter the reason—for DNA samples that will enter national databank records.

1984

According to Justice Kennedy–never trust anyone with that last name– the ruling allows police to swab violent criminal’s mouths, i.e. rapists and murders such as Alonzo Jay King of Maryland, who’s DNA matched that of a rape victim.

King is a violent criminal, but the court ruling does not protect the public from violent thugs like King.

Not according to Justice Kennedy:

The advent of DNA technology is one of the most significant scientific advancements of our era. The full potential for use of genetic markers in medicine and science is still being explored, but the utility of DNA identification in the criminal justice system is already undisputed. Since the first use of forensic DNA analysis to catch a rapist and murderer in England in 1986…law enforcement, the defense bar, and the courts have acknowledged DNA testing’s ‘unparalleled ability both to exonerate the wrongly convicted and to identify the guilty.’ It has the potential to significantly improve both the criminal justice system and police investigative practices.

 

Yes, DNA testing has saved the lives of falsely accused and matched DNA to victims. But technology used in violent criminal cases must never invade the lives of private citizens without just cause. Monday’s ruling will flow further into states, giving police power to swab the mouths of all arrested citizens, on any charge, including non-violent crimes.

Justice Kennedy’s statement about DNA collecting is a sham. Yet Kennedy insists:

The Act also limits the information added to a DNA database and how it may be used. Specifically, “[o]nly DNA records that directly relate to the identification of individuals shall be collected and stored.” No purpose other than identification is permissible: “A person may not willfully test a DNA sample for information that does not relate to the identification of indi-viduals as specified in this subtitle.” Tests for familial matches are also prohibited.  (“A person may not perform a search of the statewide DNA data base for the purpose of identification of an offender in connection with a crime for which the offender may be a biological relative of the individual from whom the DNA sample was acquired”). The officers involved in taking and analyzing respondent’s DNA sample complied with the Act in all respects.

 

With all due respect your Honor, once DNA is placed into national databanks, the government will assume the right to do as it wishes with our identification. And Kennedy admits:  “All 50 States require the collection of DNA from felony convicts,” so this latest ruling is just another way to monitor citizens.

Person of Interest

Americans no longer have privacy.


Police state

To make the violation sound respectful, Kennedy claims swabbing won’t violate the Fourth, because it’s not as invasive as a blood test: “A buccal swab is a far more gentle process than a venipuncture to draw blood. It involves but a light touch on the inside of the cheek.”

That’s akin to a dentist telling patients that having every tooth extracted will prevent the possibility of one ever having to endure painful gum disease.

Justice Kennedy audaciously claims DNA swabbing is equal to “fingerprinting and photographing, a legitimate police booking procedure that is reasonable under the Fourth Amendment.”

Swab Squad

Excuse me Justice, but no it’s not. When I was born, I was foot and finger printed, as are all Americans. My birth certificate records those prints. My mother adores “those sweet little feet” on that certificate. My driver’s license has my photograph—I dare any cop to show that photo to the public and the country will witness a swabbing like it’s never seen! When I came of age, I acquired a Social Security Card. I have school records (I wish I could pull an Obama with my math records!) from kindergarten through college—with more unattractive photos, depending on the year and stage of life— tracking my whereabouts for decades.

The only swabbing record is at my OBGYN, a place the government never wants to enter unless is desires to experience the full-force pain of labor!

So give me a break Justice Kennedy! I’m recorded, processed, filed, photographed, licensed, and documented. How much more does the government need; my blood? No, it wants my DNA if I’m ever arrested for something absurd.

I’m only a threat to my fellow fashion occultists when the hoard of us maneuver into clothing and shoe tug-of-war combat aggression at designer sample sales in New York City. We fashionaholics swab the floor with each other over high end one-of-a-kind luxury pieces of clothing. No cop has ever had the guts to get in the middle of that!

Seriously, it’s bad enough public schools now scan children’s irises without parental consent to monitor school children.

Iris and cameras

How far will America go with Soviet-style tactics against free born citizens?

Scalia answered that question:  

The Court disguises the vast (and scary) scope of its holding by promising a limitation it cannot deliver…The Court repeatedly says that DNA testing, and entry into a national DNA registry, will not befall thee and me, dear reader, but only those arrested for ‘serious offense[s]…’ At the end of the day, logic will out. When there comes before us the taking of DNA from an arrestee for a traffic violation, the Court will predictably (and quite rightly) say, ‘We can find no significant difference between this case and King.’ Make no mistake about it: As an entirely predictable consequence of today’s decision, your DNA can be taken and entered into a national DNA database if you are ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for whatever reason…Today’s judgment will, to be sure, have the beneficial effect of solving more crimes; then again, so would the taking of DNA samples from anyone who flies on an airplane (surely the Transportation Security Administration needs to know the ‘identity’ of the flying public), applies for a driver’s license, or attends a public school. Perhaps the construction of such a genetic panopticon is wise. But I doubt that the proud men who wrote the charter of our liberties would have been so eager to open their mouths for royal inspection. I therefore dissent, and hope that today’s incursion upon the Fourth Amendment, like an earlier one will someday be repudiated.

 

This court ruling completely violates the Bill of Rights. The moment any individual’s mouth is swabbed, they lose their rights to the Fifth. Refusal to speak is useless when police can compel your DNA to speak against you, no matter what you do or don’t do, for the rest of your life!

Justice Scalia notes: “Americans despised the British use of so-called ‘general warrants,’” so Americans framed the Constitution with a Bill of Rights to protect us against unreasonable arrests.

We the People

Let’s face facts Americans: Swabbing the mouths of all arrested citizens turns America into a “Logan’s Run” society of monitored people.

We Need To Shrink The Executive Branch

thomas-jefferson-site-image-cropped

In light of these most recent scandals, and egregious assaults on the First Amendment of The United States Constitution, by The Obama Administration, in regards to the wiretapping of journalists at Foxnews, and The Associated Press – as well as The I.R.S. admission to having targeted political groups whose politics they didn’t agree with – we are seeing a number of officials from The Obama Administration, including The President, himself, to Attorney General Eric Holder, onto Lois Lerner of The I.R.S., denying that they knew anything in regards to these scandals.

Attorney General Holder is the man in charge at The Department of Justice; Lois Lerner is the Director of The Exempt Organizations at The I.R.S – that decides which groups can obtain tax exemption; and The President, of course, is in charge of the entire Executive Branch of The Federal Government.

Thus far, it has been proven, via a signed document by Eric Holder, that he did know about the wiretapping of journalists, the seizure of their e-mails, and “may” very well have perjured himself by stating otherwise to Congress. Lois Lerner, cowardly, pleaded The 5th, and is on administrative leave, which “suggests” that she may know more then she is willing to say. And, The President continues to act as if he is as shocked as we are, in regards to these outrageous assaults on The U.S. Constitution, and our Personal Liberties.

What Obama’s “Bulworth” Comment Shows About Us

bulworthtaylor

bulworthtaylor
Almost forgotten within the whirlwind of last week’s columns and news stories covering the Obama Administration’s scandals was a piece from The New York Times discussing the “onset of woes” he’s had to deal with. Various aides told The Times on, and off, the record how the President is doing all he can to make sure his second term agenda gets accomplished. They also mentioned how Obama is frustrated and “exasperated “with Washington, something which isn’t new to anyone who’s watched one of his news conferences.

The most telling comment in the piece is how Obama has talked about “going Bulworth” and just saying what he actually thinks. This is a reference to the Warren Beatty/Halle Berry film about a California senator who decides to tell everyone what he believes, no matter the consequences. The New York Post has taken it to mean Obama wants to come out and admit he’s a socialist, which the Bulworth character is. This could be true, but it also reveals a problem with our political system.

Politicians have a problem with being 100-percent honest. Big surprise, but a David Axelrod quote following the Bulworth revelation is even more telling. Axelrod told The Times, “But the reality is that while you want to be truthful, you want to be straightforward, you also want to be practical about whatever you’re saying.”

 

It’s not that politicians can’t tell the truth, it’s that they don’t think the public wants to know the truth.

 

The sad part is…they’re probably right.

 

More people would rather be told that things are “going to be okay,” instead of hearing the horrific reality of the situation.

 

The 2012 election is a perfect example of this. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were vilified for discussing the nation’s $16-trillion in debt. Columnists like Paul Krugman claimed the nation’s debt isn’t an issue, while Obama told David Letterman “we don’t have to worry about it short term.” Letterman asked only one follow up but that shouldn’t be surprising. He’s not Jake Tapper.

 

When Romney spoke his mind in the “infamous” 47-percent quote, he was said to “not represent all Americans” and to have “written off half the nation.” Obama, again, told Letterman about how he wanted to represent the “entire country,” but didn’t talk the substance of Romney’s quote, why he may have said it or the context.

Guaranteed: more people saw Obama make those comments than any of Romney’s speeches on the debt.

 

However, it’s not just Romney who was vilified. Ron Paul was called a “dangerous man” for some of his positions. A look at the jokes the late night talk show hosts said about Paul, shows they saw him more as a “crazy uncle” and not a real candidate. Now, Paul is a horrible messenger from time to time (see his Chris Kyle tweet and his September 11th comment) but he’s at least willing to speak his mind and tell the truth. Something refreshing in politics.

 

As much as people claim to want the truth, the reality is much different. The truth hurts and people prefer “flowers and sunshine” to reality. There’s a difference between pointing out problems and solutions, and just telling people it will be okay. This is why politicians use double-speak and seem distance. A majority of people don’t want reality.

 

There is a way for conservatives and libertarians to break through this. Outreach. Real outreach, not the failed attempt of Project ORCA by Romney’s team during 2012. Get out in the community and be with people. See what they experience. Explain to them how freedom and liberty is important and show them how it can make their lives better. Support what Deneen Borelli and Wayne Dupree are doing in the Black community and what “True the Vote” is trying to do with the Hispanic community. Talk to friends. Engage them.

 

 

And keep politicians accountable. It’s not always pragmatic to change one’s mind. Sometimes it’s simply political. Get them to explain why they do what they do. Get them to tell the truth.

 

 

It’s the only way to prove Axelrod and his ilk wrong.

 

And to make sure Bulworth isn’t “just” a movie but reality.


 

Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation Rejects IRS Apology for their Abusive and Discriminatory Practices. Cites IRS for Unconstitutional Actions and Behavior

VTPPlogo_yellowmap3

VTPPlogo_yellowmap3

(Richmond, VA) – “The IRS Exempt Organizations unit has violated the sacred constitutional rights of some 75 Tea Party and Patriot groups that had applied for tax-exempt status between 2009 and 2012,” said Mark Daugherty, Chairman, Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation. “The Tea Party rejects the apology by Lois Lerner, Director, Exempt Organizations, for her department’s confirmed discrimination and illegal treatment against groups that have the words ‘Tea Party’ or ‘Patriots’ in their name,” declared Mr. Daugherty.

The Constitutional violations include.

    1. First Amendment: The rights of free speech. Viewpoint discrimination.
    2. Fourth Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.
    3. Fourteenth Amendment: Equal protection of the law.

Mark Daugherty said, “This egregious behavior requires a full top-to-bottom investigation by the Inspector General of the operations and practices of the IRS Exempt Organizations unit. “Furthermore, The IRS agents, supervisors, and senior executives should be held accountable for their illegal actions.”

The Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation notes the abusive and overtly political behavior by the IRS during the Clinton administration when critics of President Clinton were subjected to tax audits.* “This cycle of IRS abuse and illegal behavior must be stopped,” said Mark Daugherty.

The Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation thanks the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) for advocating on behalf of 27 tea party groups seeking tax-exempt status, including tea party groups in Virginia.

“Several Tea Party groups in northern Virginia were discouraged from seeking tax-exempt status due to the chilling effects of the enhanced investigations by the IRS,” said Mark Daugherty. “In addition, the Shenandoah Valley Tea Party Patriots spent 26 months working through the tortuous tax-exempt process, and spent 235 hours to compile a 10-pound report measuring seven inches thick, to comply with a second-round of IRS information requests.”

Ron Wilcox, lead organizer of the Northern Va Tea Party, said, “We were discouraged from applying for tax exempt status because we knew the IRS was targeting the tea party groups for ‘special examination’ and ‘enforcement’.”

“The tea party groups targeted should also be reimbursed for the extra time and expense forced upon them in attempting to comply with these illegal, threatening mandates handed down against them by the IRS,” states Mr. Daugherty.

The Virginia Tea Party Patriots Federation is a coalition of 46 independent Tea Party and patriot groups that stand for fiscal responsibility, constitutionally-limited government, and free market principles.

Are None of Them of Value

It is really quite amazing what we witness in the United States of America today.

On May 25, 1787 the Constitutional Convention opened.  One hundred sixteen days later, on September 17, 1787 they concluded their official work.  All but one of the thirteen states (excluding Rhode Island) participated in the convention.  Those twelve States gave unanimous order the Constitution should be submitted for ratification.

Among the forty-two specific delegates that participated in the convention thirty-eight voted in favor.  The principle concern of the remaining four was that proposed constitution did not contain a bill of rights articulating the rights of the people and the states over the authority of the national central government.

Yet, even in the Federalist victory for the Constitution they gave promise that such a bill of rights would be championed by the Congress as amendments to the Constitution.

Two hundred seventy-eight days later the Constitution was ratified.  Then on March 4, 1789 Congress convened in New York City for the first time. Just ninety-seven days later, even before the Supreme Court was officially established, James Madison, true to the promise given, introduced The Bill of Rights to Congress to be acted upon.

It is really quite amazing what we witness in the United States of America today.

The rights articulated in those first ten amendments to the Constitution, under the honor of those men given authority and trust of the people, are tossed aside by our current crop of congressional members.

The first amendment set the people apart from the dictates of the federal government over the free exercise of consciences.  Yet, the rights of religion, speech, assembly, and opposition to government tyranny are assailed routinely by operatives of that government.

The second amendment guaranteed the uninfringed right of the people to keep and bear arms distinctly for the purpose of preserving the strength of states against the dominance of the national government.  Yet, on every hand federally elected officials seek to superimpose their desires over the rights of the people.

The third and fourth amendments assure protection of the people against the quartering of soldiers in their homes, and against unreasonable search and seizure.  Yet, police forces with arms and fire power of a standing army may now routinely enter homes at gunpoint.  The president advocates for the power to impose upon every American via the modern technology of drone warfare.  Departments of the government may intrude private home and confiscate children.  Is it truly beyond imagination that such people will not soon advocate for armed incursion of the military into private homes?

The Fifth Amendment protects every citizen against double jeopardy and against the taking of private property.  Yet, we see routinely how the government hounds citizens.  Numerous examples exist of government trying a person for a specific crime, and upon failure to establish guilt go about finding an alternate charge to try them…only demand a retaliatory sentencing for guilt.  In my own city a man is hounded endlessly by a federal agency.  His goods and property have been confiscated without trial.  In like manner his extended family’s good have also been stolen by the government…again without trial or conviction.

The sixth and seventh amendments were meant to protect the citizenry against an executive government exercising undue length of trials and avoidance of the judicial government to punish a presumed perpetrator.  Yet, the revenue arms of the federal government taunt citizens literally for over a decade for crimes which they cannot generate evidence for against a citizen.  Further, because of the arrogance of the courts the eighth amendment, protecting the people against a zealous government intent on setting an appearance of justice, impose indiscriminant sentences.

Corresponding with the first eight amendments the ninth reiterates for emphasis that it is the rights of the government that are restricted, not the rights of the people.  Yet, routinely, elected federal officials purport to have authority over the rights people in all matters.

Finally, in the tenth amendment, simply to slam the point home with an exclamation mark the federal government is told in no uncertain terms that ALL the power given to the federal has been stated, and if it has not been stated it does not exist with them.  Yet, the federal government wields a whip of revenue over the heads of the various states coercing compliance.

It is really quite amazing what we witness in the United States of America today.  We have been turned upside-down and inside-out like a carnival contortionist.

If Madison, Adams, Jefferson, Washington and the delegates to the Constitutional Convention were alive today they would be standing in awe at the failure that modern America has made of the nation they created at such great a cost.

 

 

 

Gun Control By Dictate: Abolishing the 2nd Amendment

George Washington Quote

Yesterday I wrote about government dictating how illegal aliens are going to be legalized by the “Gang of 8” scheme.  It matteEagle 2nd Amendmentrs not to Congress or the regime what We the People or the Constitution say.  They will decide how it is going to be and We the People will just have to accept it because it is “fair”.  Today I write about gun control and how government intends to impose their will on We the People, disregarding the Constitution and the rights of said People.  How does fairness and public safety figure into the latest dictates on firearms?

Gun control is being handled exactly the same way they have handled the illegal alien problem.  A nut goes out and shoots some people, so they pass laws to stop it from happening again.  Except that it happened again because they haven’t enforced the “new” laws they passed the last time this came up.  Gun control has been such a raging success everywhere it has been tried hasn’t it?  Gang violence with firearms is rampant in the major gun free zones in our nation.  Sen. Ted Cruz recently gave out 2010 figures  that show 15,700 attempts by criminals to legally access firearms, in one year: 2010.  They were caught by the background check system in effect right now.  The Obama regime has prosecuted 44.  Clintonesque isn’t it???

So, the Obama regime prosecuted just 44 out of 15,700 background check cases that the current law caughStalin Bans Gunst, in one year, and we need more restrictions on firearms???  You have got to be kidding me, AGAIN!!  Chicago is a stellar case for gun free zones.  Is it fair that Chicago’s “gun free zone” is more dangerous to poor black children than Afghanistan is to our soldiers?  And the gun free Mecca of Washington D. C. (De Cesspool) is right on Chicago’s heels.

Il Duce ObamaIs it fair to the law abiding citizen who reads the Constitution and sees “shall not be infringed” being infringed by both political parties; “for our own well-being and safety”, of course?  Is it fair to the homeowner who hears a group of armed thugs kicking in his door or smashing a window to rob the home in the middle of the night?  The old saying goes, “when seconds count the police are minutes away”!!!  That is not a slap at the police by any stretch.  I salute their dedication and understand their frustration at arresting criminals, only to see the same criminals walking the street before the ink is dry on the arrest report.

Is it fair to the 6 year old murdered in a Chicago gang shooting because she happened to be sitting on the front steps with her sister???  Is it fair to the family that loses a child who has nothing to do with gangs but can neither move out of the neighborhood nor possess a firearm to defend themselves from the gang member?  You know, the gang member who has been arrested a dozen times for gun law violations but is out on bail or parole; the same gang member who finds a full automatic weapon that no law abiding citizen will ever possess???  And he didn’t buy it through any “gun show loophole”!!!

So, do they really need to pass “new” restrictions on the 2nd Amendment to solve the problems that have been created by not enforcing the “new” restrictions they passed the last time this came up?  “Pass something quick and we can fill in the details later” is the order of the day in government.  Kind of like “we have to pass it so we can find out what is in it”, isn’Bible, flag, guns, Our rightst it??

Is anyone seeing a pattern here?  There is a problem, any problem; illegal aliens, poverty, murder, gang violence, drug trafficking, terrorism, etc.  The problem has been addressed countless times in the past and new laws and regulations have been passed but not enforced each time, not enforced because those laws will be “unfair” to those breaking the law.   The answer of politicians is always more control over those who actually follow the laws.  Everyone knows, and politicians admit, that absolutely nothing in the current crop of new legislation would do anything to solve the problem of gun violence, or prevent another Sandy Hook from happening.

These last two articles are but two examples of many that show a total disregard for the Constitution, the rule of law, and the well-being and liberty of We the People.  The politicians and the bureaucrats spend all of their time thinking up ways Constitutionto further restrict the rights of citizens when they should be focusing on enforcing the last set of “new” laws, rules, and regulations they passed.  They admit the new laws won’t matter, yet demand that those of us who do obey the law give up our rights anyway.  They need to pass this idea for a possible outline quick before anyone can look at it.    “We have to pass it so we can find out what is in it”, AGAIN!!!

The political class is destroying our nation.  They never fix anything!!!  They continually put restrictions on what legal citizens can do without so much as a thought of what the Constitution provides for.  That “old and outdated” document means nothing to either political party.

There are a few in the Senate and a few in the House who are fighting the establishments of both parties on behalf of We the People.  They are being beaten down by those who control both political parties and their minions in the media.  The People’s voices are not welcomed by Republicans or Democrats.  They know best and will “debate and tell us where they stand”.  From my reading and studying of the Constitution I thought they were supposed to decide based on the Constitution first and the will of We the People second.

Now on the heels of Boston they want to force background checks before We the People can buy gunpowder, pressure cookers, and ham hocks!!!!!  Never mind that the entire problem is Muslim murderers who have no conscience, and their government enablers who “never let a good crisis go to waste”.  There isn’t any sense in securing our borders or deporting known terrorist sympathizers!!!  The only thing that makes sense to those dictators in Washington is to further restrict the liberty ofBarbed Wire decent law abiding citizens.

They have their dictatorial oligarchy established and will not turn loose of it easily.  The statists who control both parties are seeing We the People stand up to their treachery and they don’t like it.  They want to get things jammed through as quickly as possible, knowing that time is not on their side.  We the people are fed up, standing up, and demanding they govern by the Constitution first and the will of the people second.  The disarming of We the People and the arming of DHS is government saying; ”NO We will NOT obey the Constitution, YOU will obey us“!!!!!

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Illegal Aliens and Amnesty By Dictate

Don't Tread On Me

Marco Rubio

The more things change the more they stay the same.  I am amazed at the scam Marco Rubio is trying to pull on the American people.  The “Gang of 8” comes up with this great plan that will “protect We the People” while showing some “compassionate conservativism” towards those who break our immigration laws.  Of course, as is the usual case, there are holes in this “plan” big enough to sail an aircraft carrier through.

This immigration surrender is something that no other nation in the world would tolerate.   Once again we have a very small “gang of…” deciding the future of the nation without the consent of the citizens, you know, We the People.  Marco Rubio jumped at the chance to be the front man for this affront to the Constitution and We the People, happily taking on the mantle of being Charles Schumer’s puppet.  This isn’t going to help his 2016 presidential aspirations very much.

Why should We the People believe this spin job has any real truth in it?  They propose to grant legal status to illegals now and spend ten years closing the border.  And if the border isn’t secure in the first five years it will be turned over to a committee made up of the states?  You have got to be kidding!!!  Naturally, the actual legislation isn’t even written so they want to pass the outline.  Give this vague idea a catchy name and vote it into law, QUICKLY!!!  They can get around to writing it later.  Kind of like “pass it so we can find out what is in it”, isn’t it??

I have seen all this before on the immigration issue.  They talk big about how tough they are going to be on those they “pardon” because “there will be rules to abide by, steps to take”.  And they expect me to believe this “new” legislation will be enforced? They actually think We the People are going to buy this clap-trap?  This is not governing, this is ruling by dictate.  They come out and tell us they have decided on this and demand that We the People accept it because it is “fair”.  Fair to who???  Just who is this fair to???

Is it fair to the citizens who are truly poor, those who are here legally?  They have broken no laws, yet cannot subsist on their own because the opportunities that haven’t been squashed directly by government bureaucratic regulations have been eroded by politicians pandering to those who did break the law to be here.  Government works for government.  Politicians and bureaucrats work for themselves; their power and authority, their ability to dictate how we will live ourEagle Scowling lives.

Is it fair to the retiree whose retirement savings have been frittered away by these same politicians and bureaucrats?  The senior citizens who worked all their lives see the money they saved, instead of driving new cars and taking expensive vacations, stolen by those they elected to manage the country.  They see their money taken by politicians and given to those who thumb their noses at our laws.  Politicians in both parties worked with the “too big to fail” banks, the Wall Streeters they “hate”, and the AFL-CIO to rob seniors of their life savings.

Is it fair to the union workers, er former union workers, who have lost their jobs in the last 15 years?  Is it fair to the union workers who relied on union leaders to work for the benefit of the workers, and politicians who promised to protect the Trumka and Obamajobs they eventually lost?  Is it fair to the union workers who began a family, bought a new house, went too deep into debt and then had the rug pulled out from under them by union demands and bureaucratic dictates that cost them their job? Richard Trumka and the other union big shots live a lavish lifestyle while millions of former union workers scratch to get by, losing houses and possessions.  These politicians and union leaders are more concerned about a bunch of illegal aliens than those they purport to represent.  FAIR??  Fair to who???

All this “fairness” isn’t about fairness at all, and it isn’t about Democrat versus Republican.  It is about government control of our lives and their authority over everything.  Both parties are doing this to us.  They both posture and bleat but in the end it is We the People who find our standard of living being reduced.  They want more control of our lives and give us less voice in what goes on in our nation.  These aren’t the actions of a republican form of government.  These are the actions of a dictatorial oligarchy.

They, this Gang of 8, propose that we pass “new” laws and “new” regulations to fix the problems that have been caused by not enforcing the “new” laws and “new” regulations they passed the last time this came up.  Both political parties are in this together.  All this “bi-partisanship” is steadily eroding our standard of living and our standard of liberty.republican logo

Is anyone else seeing a pattern here?  There is a problem, any problem; healthcare, immigration, firearms, welfare, etc.  The problem has been addressed countless times in the past and “new laws and regulations” have been passed but not enforced each time, because those laws will be “unfair” to those breaking the law.   The answer of politicians is always more control over those Demomcrat Logowho actually follow the laws while turning a blind eye to those who ignore the “new” laws.  Everyone knows that absolutely nothing in the current crop of new legislation will do anything to solve the problem of the illegal alien invasion.

This is but one example of many.  The politicians and the bureaucrats spend all of their time thinking up ways to further restrict the rights of citizens when they should be focusing on enforcing the last set of “new” laws, rules, and regulations they passed.  They admit the new laws won’t matter yet demand that those of us who do obey the law must give up our rights anyway.  They need to pass this idea for a possible outline quickly, before anyone can look at it.    “We have to pass it so we can find out what is in it”, AGAIN!!

The political class is destroying our nation.  They never fix anything!!!  They continually put restrictionAl Sharpton on 2nd Amendments on what legal citizens can do without so much as a thought of what the Constitution provides for.  That “old and outdated document” means nothing to either political party, but means everything to liberty and government OF the People, BY the People, and FOR the People.

There are a few in the Senate and a few in the House who are fighting the establishments of both parties on behalf of We the People.  They are being beaten down by those who control both political parties and their minions in the media.  Our voices are not welcomed by Republicans or Democrats.  THEY know best and THEY will “debate and tell us where THEY stand”.  What about where the ConstitutionConstitution stands??? What about where WE THE PEOPLE stand???

They have their dictatorial oligarchy and will not turn loose of it easily.  The statists who control both parties are seeing We the People stand up to their treachery and they don’t like it.  They want to get things jammed through as quickly as possible, knowing that time is not on their side.  We the people are fed up, standing up, and demanding they govern by the Constitution first and the will of the people second.  Their creation and intense arming of DHS is the government, BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES, saying, ”NO We will NOT honor our oath to the Constitution“!!!!!

To TEA Party Organization Leaders: Unite for Liberty

Eagle- America Deserves Better

 

Leaders of TEA Party Organizations,

I have seen the different groups in the TEA Party family all working independently, or so it seems to me, on projects that are all very impoBible, flag, guns, Our rightsrtant.  I know that one of the draws of the TEA Party is independence but the time has come that all of you must unite to fight the common enemy, an out of control government.  Both political parties are unresponsive to the citizens and only getting worse.  There are good conservatives in Congress but they are being beaten down one at a time by a machine that destroys anyone who refuses to bow to the “party loyalty first” crowd and their behind-the-scenes handlers.

The Republican Party “leadership” is in league with the most radical Democrats who have ever been in power.  We are on the verge of losing our freedom because we continue to support those who have turned their backs on us time and again.  Republicans have lied to us so many times I have lost track of the number.  They have “investigated” time and gain yet have given us nothing but hand-wringing and excuses for the evil deeds of politicians of both parties.  It is time to take drastic measures.

There are good men and women in Congress fighting for We the People but they need us behind them in a united front.  TEA Party minded people make up much of the party but the Republican Party establishment is moving more towards pandering mode and ignoring us.

After the 2010 mid-term elections John Boehner, who sat in the Speaker’s chair because of us, said the TEA john-a-boehnerParty played a very minor role in the record setting landslide elections at the federal, state, and local levels.  After the “moderate candidate” disaster in 2012 the same John Boehner blamed the TEA Party for the losses.  John McCain and Lindsey Graham, among others, continually attack those who speak for us, and the McConnell/Boehner “quick, run up the white flag we will fight another day” way of doing things is unacceptable yet we accept it.  We are the enemy to them, not their allies.  They use us like Democrats use the welfare state.  We can do better.

I wrote a blog article that I hope the leadership of all of these different organizations will read.  Conservative America has the numbers in population to make a wholesale change.  All we need is leadership; people who will set their egos aside and lead us to where our founders intended us to be, using the system they designed.  As I wrote, you have the people with you.  We have in the past and continue to show we are here.  There are prominent conservatives in the media, the political realm, and Hollywood who have immense fortunes that could help fund a political party, and there are many good, conservative legislators to govern.

Many wealthy founding fathers died penniless but they had forged the greatest nation ever established. We don’t have to begin from scratch to build a nation; all we have to do is once again live by their design.  How much better could we honor those who have died to establish and preserve this Republic?

We the People are ready, we are willing, and we are able.  All we need is for those of you organFlag I am an Americanizing things, and those with the financial means to finance it, to get together and forge the type of future envisioned by our founders so many years ago.  It can be done and you can do it, with the support of the 67% of We the People who call themselves TEA Party folks.

I mentioned this in passing to Steve Eichler of TEA Party.Org .  His response was “a TEA Party Congress? Interesting”.  I like the sound of a TEA Party Congress.  It represents the vision and the work of our founders.  We have allowed our nation to come under the control of despots who see themselves as ruling rather than governing.  The only way to change it is to garner the support of the 67% who identify with the TEA Party and focus it on an Independent party.

The demographics say that 40% of people identify as Republicans, 40% as Democrats, and 20% as Independents.  Even with my lowly high school education I can figure out that no two of the groups can make up 67%.  That means TEA Party people must come from all three demographic groups.  I know that there are enough disaffected Democrat voters to give us the support we need to stop the tyranny being foisted upon us by both political parties.

Divided we are a minority in both parties but united we can overcome both parties and stop the evil despotism that is destroying the very fabric of our nation.  We the People need your help to accomplish this goal.  Without leadership there is no hope for liberty to survive.  With leadership we can once again make the United States of America the greatest nation on earth.

God granted us a great nation that has fallen away from his way; and with that falling away has come decline, despair, Holy bibleand tyranny.  Together we can bring our nation back to the principles of God that are the basis of our past success as a nation. I don’t speak of a theological nation but rather a restoration of the values established by the founders.  The question is; Can you do it?  Will you Constitutiondo it?  Can all of you, will all off you,  join forces to defeat the tyranny that is tearing our nation apart and destroying the futures of our children and grandchildren?

I am with you, and you will find the majority of We the People will follow you if you will unite and truly lead as our founders led.  Duty, Honor, Country, “with a firm reliance on Divine Providence” is the answer to our national and personal woes.  I pledge to you my support, my loyalty to your cause as long as it is the cause of constitutional liberty, my sacred honor, and my life.  I have no fortune to pledge but I pledge what I can offer if you will accept the mantle of leadership and work to restore the nation so many have died to establish and preserve.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Sen. Tom Coburn: Charlatan or Traitor?

Tom Coburn

My wife and I recently sent separate e-mails to Sen. Tom Coburn asking him to join Rand Paul’s filibuster of Harry Reid’s latest gun control scheme.  We sent messages on the same day, she from her office and me from our home.  Neither of us knew about the other until that evening when we sat down for dinner and discussed the day’s events.  The responses we received were a day apart, hers on April 9th and mine on April 10th.

I don’t know why we were surprised when we compared the responses but we were.  We both received the form letter some aide undoubtedly wrote to make it sound like Sen. Coburn actually believes in the 2nd Amendment and the rights of We the People.  I have included the response I received and have my wife’s available if anyone desires to contest that they are the same.  I also know of two other people who received the same letter.

Letter from Sen. Tom Coburn in response to a request that he join the filibuster started by Sen. Rand Paul:

Dear Mr. Russell,

Thank you for taking the time to write me to express your opinion and concerns about the various gun control proposals. I am encouraged so many Oklahomans are making their voices heard. I have received an overwhelming number of letters, and in order to respond in a timely manner, I am writing a response that encompasses my entire position. If you have additional questions or concerns, please write me again.

  I want to be clear: I remain committed to defending and protecting our Constitution; namely the Second Amendment.  I have long protected the rights of law-abiding citizens to own guns. I am opposed to a ban on assault rifles and I oppose limiting magazines. I will not vote for any bill that limits the gun rights of law abiding citizens.  While I support a debate in the Senate on gun related issues—including reaffirming these rights and forcing gun-control advocates to have their votes on record and be held accountable for their votes—I will not only support, but lead a filibuster to prevent the passage of any bill that limits the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.  

The news reports are correct that I have been involved in discussions to write legislation improving the existing background checks to enable private citizens to check a database and ensure the person they seek to sell their gun to is legally allowed to own a firearm.  I believe it is good public policy to make sure that those who are mentally-ill or a felon (both are already prohibited from owning a gun), do not have access to a weapon.  However, I oppose record keeping and will not agree to legislation that expands record keeping to private sales.

The concern I am hearing over and over is not just about people maintaining their right to own firearms—it is a concern about how to preserve liberty.  When our Constitution was adopted, we had just won a war fought largely by Minute Men and localized, or unofficial, militias (Sons of Liberty, etc).  The first shots fired at Concord were, in part, to preserve a local supply of firearms that the British sought to confiscate.  Our founders believed very strongly that the individual right to bear arms would preserve the independence and freedom won in 1781, just as they had enabled our founders to win the revolutionary war.  They feared tyranny and centralized power—which is why our Constitution was established.  In addition to the checks created by balancing power between a legislature and executive—and checked by a judiciary—the Bill of Rights sought to limit the federal government and clearly stated that those powers not enumerated in the Constitution and delegated to the federal government would remain with the states and the people (the 9th and 10th Amendments). 

Yet, our federal government regularly legislates on matters that belong to the states and the people.  Our freedoms are being gradually encroached and choked by ever-increasing regulations, laws, agencies, and overspending.  This concerns me greatly and I fight daily to rein in the size, scope and spending of our federal government.  I believe the greatest threat to our Republic is apathy as our overindulgent federal government, through indebtedness, spends the money of future generations.  James Madison, the architect of our Constitution, said something similar in 1788 in a speech in Virginia when he said, “Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”

I am aware of this and I work to push back on all attacks to our Constitution, including those to our Second Amendment. Congress must be careful not to legislate in a way that makes criminals out of law-abiding, gun-owning citizens.

Thank you for being involved and allowing me these last eight years to fight to protect our Constitution.  I daily think about the sacrifices of past generations and I am grateful.  In these last four years, as I finish out my second term, I remain committed to protecting your Second Amendment rights and working to limit our federal government and reduce federal spending. 

Sincerely,

Tom A. Coburn, M.D.

United States Senator

TC: lcp

That isn’t a response, it’s a press release.  And just what is there to debate about the 2nd Amendment?  I thought it was quite obvious what the founders intended.  They intended for citizens to have the means to defend themselves, first and foremost, against a tyrannical government.  This mental health scam is just a way of abolishing the right to own firearms, thereby renderingEagle 2nd Amendment We the People defenseless against a dictatorship.  Keep guns out of the hands of criminals???  How did prohibition work out, Senator??  How is Chicago working out???  Try enforcing the laws on the books now before passing more.  See how that works out.  But your answer is to surrender here and fight  ”next time”.  What “next time”???? Which “next time”?  When????????

I have always supported Sen. Coburn because I thought he was a true American patriot who cared deeply about his country and the God-given rights listed in the Constitution.  Coburn just voted to allow a simple majority of Democrats to gut the 2nd Amendment, and nullify the 4th and 5th Amendments; and is telling constituents he supports our right to possess firearms.

This is double-talk if I ever saw double-talk!! And who decides who is mentally ill or not, Diane Feinstein???  Was I wrong all these years or has Coburn just decided that my liberty isn’t worth his effort since he is retiring from Congress at the end of this term?  Frankly, I don’t know what to think about him!!  Gun control, Amnesty, where does Coburn really stand up for America??

It is very apparent that Sen. Coburn, along with the bulk of the Republican Party and every member of the Democrat Party, has betrayed We the People.  They have also betrayed the oath of office they swore, to “protect and defend the Constitution of the ConstitutionUnited States of America”.  That oath apparently is no longer valid in their minds.  They twist its meaning to justify their treachery as they have assumed the mantle of dictators with the power of life and death over the citizens they consider to be no more than subjects.  You know, kind of like King George!!!

Members of both political parties have gone beyond violating their oaths of office and have reached the point of treason.  It is painfully obvious they have no intention of governing, taking the position that their esteemed positions give them the “right”  to rule over We the People as if we are cattle to be herded at their whim.  When I see the outright arrogance and corruption that pervades government, both political parties and at all levels, it is impossible to come to the conclusion that liberty as established by our founding fathers is the driving force of politicians.  Power, prestige in the media, and personal wealth is all they seek.  The Constitution and the rights of citizens get in the way of their goal of total control of the nation.

Members of both political parties run to the microphones and cameras of their media lapdogs to proclaim their dedication to freedom while doing everything they can to destroy that freedom.  And the lapdog media, desiring favor from those same ruling politicians, report what they are told to report, and spin as they are told to spin.

This isn’t a Democrat vs. Republican power play; it is a political ruling class vs. We the People power play and We the People are losing.  DHS is arming itself to the teeth with billions of rounds of hollow point ammunition, the kind that cannot be used in war; thousands of full automatic rifles, the true “assault rifle”; thousands of armored vehicles called MRAP’s, the mine-proof type used in war by our military; and DHS agents run practice operations with local law enforcement, using machine gun firing helicoptersUrban Rescue Vehicle 2 over our cities.  What is all this armament of a “domestic security force” to be used for???  Care to take a guess????  Maybe they are going to start rounding up all the illegal aliens!!!!!!

Sen. Diane Feinstein tells us that ALL veterans are mentally ill, dangerously unstable, and should be banned from owning firearms.  In New York and California local law enforcement is already confiscating guns from those they see as a threat to their dictatorship.  How about that one Sen. Coburn???  Some states are racing to see who can pass the stiffest gun control legislation.  Never mind the 2nd , 4th, and 5th Amendments!!!!  They have DHS to back them up.

The Veteran’s Administration is now used as a conduit for imprisoning men and women who served their country honorably and now only desire to have the medical treatment promised to them for their service.  They have put their lives in danger for the freedom of others, protecting the very scumbag politicians that now seek to have them committed to asylums without due process; and to confiscate their guns without any reason other than politicians see them as a threat to their tyranny.

Is this the vision of America seen by our founding fathers; that veterans are now a threat to the very liberty the founders fought and George Washington Quotedied for?   Are veterans a threat to society because they shared that vision and were willing to risk their lives to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America”?  Is this how the experiment in freedom is to end?

And what of those who berate me and call me a “paranoid fear monger” because I see what is happening and call attention to tyranny?  “It can’t happen here”???? It is happening here, right now, and politicians in both political parties no longer hide behind fancy words and deception.  They come right out and state their intentions to disarm the entire populace, except for the criminals, of course.  New York governor Andrew Cuomo recently pronounced that “you don’t need 10 rounds to kill a deah”!!  Hey there Andy, the 2nd Amendment isn’t about killing a “deah”, it is about keeping people like you in your place.  It is about protecting We the People from tyranny, from Nazi or Soviet style dictatorships that enslave and murder their people.  Politicians are supposed to be “public servants”, not rulers, but look where we are today.

I hope I live long enough to see these politicians and their bureaucrat minions, charged, arrested, tried, convicted, and imprisoned for treason.  If We the People lose the war we are in right now it will be generations, if ever, before liberty will be restored.  Not one step backwards, Senator!!!

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty god to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

John McCain Doesn’t Understand ????? What a surprise!!!!!

Universal Registraton Results

john-mccain John McCain doesn’t understand filibustering gun control???  I am astonished at the statement, and at the same time, not the least little bit surprised by it.  He really means what he says; he is oblivious, and totally flabbergasted.  HE DOESN’T GET IT!!!!

He took an oath as an officer in the United States Navy to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, and reaffirmed that oath as a member of Congress.  He violates the oath of office he swore before God and the American people every day.

McCain is so hung up on the pomp and circumstance of the “debate society” known as the Senate he can’t see the Constitution.  He is the consummate stuffed shirt “Duke of…” that I remember from the “swashbuckler” movies of my childhood and teens years.  The government hierarchy we have now, Democrat and Republican, is just like a monarchy of old Europe.

We are not being governed by people who respect, or even have knowledge of, our founding document.  We are bConstitutioneing ruled by arrogant, pompous windbags who see themselves as set above We the People.  They will do what they decide is best for us, regardless of what we want, or what the Constitution says.  We are too stupid to understand liberty so they must rule our every move and have us pay them handsomely to do it.  Oh, and bow to the “Senator” or “Congressman” titles they carry for life!!!  They get treated like royalty by the media and they act like royalty.

The Robin Hood analogy fits with what is happening in America.  Prince John is a mirror of our government of today.  As a matter of fact, Prince John was the government of England at the time.  Really big business, the “too big to fail” branch of business, and government are the Prince John and Sheriff of Nottingham of our day.  John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and their ilk are part of the “king’s court” of Prince John.  They all work together to insure they get their share of the good life in the king’s court.  They are well-compensated and live a life of luxury, during and after their terms of office.

The IRS is the tax collector that Robin Hood took money from.  DHS is the enforcement arm of Prince John, his army.  DHS appears to be ramping up for something; buying full automatic rifles and semi-automatic pistols by the thousands, ammunition in Dept Homeland Security Logothe billions of rounds, and MRAP armored personnel carriers in the thousands.  They are teaming up with local law enforcement to run drills in city streets; practicing  locking down cities, “for our own protection”.  Martial law, anyone???  Why would they be arming an internal military force “equal to or better than” the United States military?  They aren’t likely to be rounding up illegal aliens any time in the near or distant future.  Who is the internal enemy they seek to overcome with this vast firepower?Urban Rescue Vehicle 2

We all know that McCain is going to insure that no illegal aliens will be inconvenienced by immigration laws.  He wants to wage war all over the world but refuses to secure the borders of our nation.  And while spending his time worrying  about the plight of people who are here illegally, McCain graciously finds enough time and energy to see to it that those of us who are here legally have no way of defending ourselves against any foe, foreign or domestic.  And he just can’t understand how anyone can object!!!!  Hey, “Senator”, what does the Constitution say in the 18 enumerated duties of the federal government?  Is McCain a traitor or just a senile old fool who needs to go home?

McCain may be a war hero (argument starts right about here) but history tells us that Benedict Arnold was one of the most outstanding officers of the Revolutionary War.  Arnold is remembered as a traitor, but before he betrayed a fledgling nation he too was a war hero.  McCain and those like him see We the People as mere peasants.  The royal attitude of elected politicians and their bureaucrat enforcers is a symptom of our destruction as a nation.

They are all doing this to us and any peasant with the temerity to object will be disarmed, and kept under observation should they survive the disarming.  The arrogance of the federal government, and many state and local governments, is appalling.  Criminals Obama's Gestapodon’t follow the registration and background check laws we have now, so passing more laws won’t solve that problem.  Chicago was just announced as the worst city in the nation for the prosecution of firearms law violations.  They don’t prosecute the laws they have available today so let’s just have them pass some more they won’t enforce!!!!

Republicans, including “Senator” McCain, are on the verge of further restricting the rights of the law abiding citizen to own firearms, something that will do absolutely nothing to make We the People any safer.  It could, however, make it much easier for enemies, both foreign and domestic (DHS, maybe??), to impose their will on We the People if they should have the inkling.

McCain and those like him in government are a disease that is killing a nation and its people.  They have become so entrenched in their opulence they seem to see themselves as royalty.  As the “royals” increase their own opulence and hunger for power the liberty of the peasants disappears.  As personal freedoms go down the drain so does the nation.

Government produces nothing and is designed to merely be an office of We the People, not a ruling junta. McCain’s confusion about the duties of the federal government and the rights of the citizens is a danger to all of us.  He either doesn’t know what the Constitution says or doesn’t care.  Either way he has no business being in an elected office.  Hmmm, that can be said for nearly every member of Congress and virtually all of their bureaucrat minions!!!You Want to take our what

People who have experienced gun control beg us to not go there but we are heading there anyway, or at least the government and many citizens are going there.  I’m not going there, I WILL NOT COMPLY!!!

We are on a course that destroyed the liberties, and lives, of millions of people in many countries throughout the 20th Century.  If we don’t reverse course and turn our nation back to the Constitution we will soon follow the path that Mr. Martinez describes in this video.  Our founders must be spinning in their graves over what is happening to the nation they sacrificed so much to establish.

Obama Won’t Confiscate Guns?? Are you Blind???

Barbed Wire

 Since Barack Obama has said he is going to send federal agents into Oklahoma and other states to enforce Obamacare, Obama's Gestapowhat is there to make me believe he won’t send federal agents in to enforce his gun registration/confiscation scheme?  If he “dictates” an executive order that I have to turn in or register any weapons and I refuse, who is going to enforce that dictate?  If Congress decrees that I cannot own particular types of weapons or magazines and I refuse to comply, who is going to enforce it?

In his E/O decree on Obamacare he essentially said the states have no right to oppose the federal government, that the federal government has the final say, PERIOD!!!, he is the ultimate authority of the land  http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/14892-obama-admin-ignores-nullification-federal-agents-will-enforce-obamacare .  Our Declaration of Independence and Constitution say different!!!  Obama and his “Gangs of ??????” in Congress, both political parties,  see themselves as rulers rather than servants of We the People.

Back to: “Who is going to confiscate my weapons and any accessories they say I cannot have”?  Is Obama going to send his DHS Gestapo thugs to attack me and those of like mind?  Will he use the purse of the federal government to pay state police to invade my home, shoot me, and steal my private property?  Will the state team up with the local sheriff and/or police department to kick in my door in the middle of the night and shoot me in my bed like happened to a man a few days ago in Auburn, Washington? http://www.prisonplanet.com/justified-uniformed-invaders-shoot-a-man-16-times-in-his-bed.html

Do I have to worry about the government kicking in my door because I exercise my rights as written in the Constitution?  Will I wake up in the middle of the night and find masked men in military garb at my door with automUrban Rescue Vehicle 2atic weapons, face masks, body armor head to toe, and an armored personnel carrier; all there with the intent to arrest me for violating a law that is clearly unConstitutional?

Some say I am paranoid, a fear monger, and a “radical right wing extremist”, for asking these questions.  I’m none of those things.  I am a patriot who believes in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the right to live by both as our founders intended.  I am a citizen who sees rampant abuse of the Constitution by those we elect to uphold and defend said Constitution.

We see incidents like these I list becoming the rule rather than the exception.  Police dressed head to toe in military garb, face hoods, and body armPolice to Gestapoor are taking a “shoot first and ask questions later” attitude in everyday contacts with people.  In California SWAT teams, also dressed in military uniforms and equipment, are rounding up firearms from those who have been “deemed” to now possess firearms illegally.  No court hearings, no due process, just a kicked in door and shots fired if resisted.

And what about the http://tightwind.net/2012/04/autopsy-suggests-man-shot-by-ny-police-did-not-threaten-them/  68 year old man shot over his medical alert bracelet being accidentally activated?  Need I go on?  There are literally pages of incidents where police and/or SWAT teams have needlessly shot citizens, many fatally.

During the Chris Dorner incident police riddled two different vehicles with bullets without bothering to find out who was in the vehicle before opening fire.  One vehicle contained a white man who was uninjured (Dorner was black).  The other vehicle contained two Hispanic women, one elderly, and both of whom were wounded.  In both cases they were in pickup trucks that were nowhere near the description given of the truck DornerChris Dorner was reported to be driving.  It seemed that merely being in a truck at that time in California was enough to get one shot by police.  Why should I believe those with the same attitude won’t just shoot me out of convenience?

Those who call me paranoid or a fear monger must see the same things I see, or do they?  What do the naysayers think about the Marine who was shot to death in a 2011 Gestapo style “drug” raid that found nothing illegal?   They shot this veteran 60 times in his own home without so much as identifying themselves, and then let him lay there for over an hour while they ransacked the house to no avail.  If you naysayers will look at the link to this story you will find it is from the Huffington Post, hardly a “vast right wing conspiracy” publication. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/25/jose-guerena-arizona-_n_867020.html

How can people see what is going on every day and say it can’t/won’t happen here?  Why not?  How does one see DHS arming itself to the teeth without wondering why they need such armaments?  Who are they going to use this military Dept Homeland Security Logohardware on?  At the same time, politicians at all levels and in both political parties are breaking their necks to disarm citizens.  If we are all defenseless why do they need armored vehicles and automatic weapons with billions of rounds of ammunition?  It is as if those in political office don’t believe in the vision of the founding fathers.

Those who say it won’t or can’t happen here are living in a dream world, one that will turn into a nightmare before their very eyes.  There were many who said it couldn’t happen in Germany, but it did.  Hundreds of thousands of Jews left Germany when they saw the steps Hitler was taking.  Some went to other European countries and were eventually roundedhitler4 Il Duce Obamaup when German forces conquered Europe.  Some came to the United States and contributed to the defeat of the Axis Powers.  Some came here to live normal working class lives and survived the Holocaust that killed 6 million of their people.

We hear stories from people who have experienced tyranny in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia yet many Americans thumb their nose at those who know from first-hand experience what life is like in totalitarian societies.  Those who deny what is obvious will suffer when the shoe of tyranny drops, and they will deserve what they get.  They won’t be the only ones to suffer, however.  An entire nation will lose the liberty won and preserved with the blood of millions of patriots.  It certainly won’t give me any pleasure to say “I told you so”, assuming I survive the initial attack.

Most of us don’t have a choice but to stay and fight for our future.  Some can move to countries that don’t have despots and wanna-be dictators running them but they won’t be safe there for long once America falls.  When we are gone as the “shining city on a hill” it won’t be long before the rest of the world is subjected to the same tyranny we saw in 1930’s Barbed WireGermany.

According to the Constitution I am part of the defensive militia of America.  If the government was following the Constitution they would be arming me and my neighbors instead of a DHS force that has no Constitutional authority to operate inside the United States.  What is the point of disarming the citizens and arming a federal police force to the teeth with military style equipment?  What possible justification do they have for this?  Who do they plan to fight with all of this hardware? We are far gone from the vision of our founders.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Dictator Obama Trying To Change State Election Laws by Executive Order

 Coming on the heels of executive orders that by-pass Congress and the Constitution on the 2nd Amendment we now find Barack Obama and Il Duce Obamahis henchmen shredding even more of the Constitution.  Jay Carney essentially threatened local sheriffs who have said they will uphold their oath of office to the Constitution and refuse to obey unconstitutional federal gun laws.  Carney came out and said they better obey Obama’s orders because of Obama’s dedication to upholding that same Constitution.  After adding this to the countless edicts that have come out we now find Obama issuing another EO creating a federal commission to change state election laws to suit him and his Marxist handlers

How can anyone not see the blatant tyranny being brought by this bunch of wanna-be banana republic dictators?  The only vote fraud anyone has proven has come from his supporters, like the woman in Illinois bragging that she voted 6 – 9 times in 2012.  I am sure Obama plans for his commission to stop such activity.

The only vote fraud found in the last several elections have benefitted Democrats, such as Al Franken in 2008.  Now Obama and his criminal enterprise intend to stack the deck even further by dictating (there is that word again) how state elections are conducted.  I am sure we will soon find Gestapo agents from DHS “overseeing” every process involved in voting, and the counting of those votes.

Our Constitution was written by men who lived under a tyrannical government and wrote our guiding document to prevConstitutionent such a thing from happening again.  Over time We the People have become so enamored of the political parties that many no longer see the Constitution for what it is, a road map of liberty, self-determination, and personal responsibility.  Neither political party has the best interests of the citizens in mind.  They only look to how they are going to be the ones sitting at the top of their ivory tower and getting the biggest piece of the pie of tyranny they are baking for We the People.

The government established by our founders was to be a government OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, and FOR THE PEOPLE.  It was written to give the most power to the citizens.  Through the citizens LIMITED power would be given to the state government, and through the state governments even further LIMITED power would Founding Fathersbe given to the federal government.  Today we see the federal government dictating what We the People can and cannot do through bureaucrats and professional politicians who go to law school, enter politics, and spend their lives dictating our rights back to us as it suits them.

Any fringe group that doesn’t like what the Constitution says about liberty and personal responsibility goes to government or to the courts and gets what they want handed to them as long as they will support those who give them a free pass to stomp on the rights of others.  This isn’t how our founders designed our system.  This is the system used in feudal Europe where one man, or his appointed minions, decides who gets what, who can do what, and who has to bow to the whims of who.

You don’t like guns, don’t own one; you don’t like sugary drinks, don’t drink one; you don’t like beef because you think it is unhealthy, don’t eat it.  But what gives anyone the right to tell me I can’t do these things, and what gives Barack Obama and his minions the right to determine how elections are administered at the state level?

This voting issue, like the gun ownership issue, isn’t about “fairness” or “safety”; it is about control, the control of many by a few.  This is dictatorship by conning citizens into believing that the federal government knows best.  Our founders didn’t believe such tripe and neither do I.  If we are to live free and have the ability to live our lives we must also take some personal responsibility for said freedom.

Obama and his allies in both political parties seek to change election laws to suit themselves, yet have a very poor record Barbed Wireof prosecuting those who violate current election laws, such as the lady I mentioned earlier.  And speaking of prosecuting law breakers, Chicago came out 90th of 90 cities studied recently in the prosecution of federal gun laws yet these same people want more gun restrictions.  Why pass more laws that won’t be enforced???  Why change election laws when current ones aren’t enforced???

You see, it isn’t about enforcing the law, it is about tyranny.  It is about passing more laws that restrict the liberty of the law abiding American citizen.  The political elites want to be able to insure they will reign forever without danger of We the People sending them to prison where they belong, the gallows which they deserve, or to just send them back home.

If this “coUniversal Registraton Resultsmmission” is allowed to stand, our system of free elections will be gone forever, if not already gone.  Intimidation, deceit, and bribery are the order of the day in our political society now and will only get worse if Obama gets to dictate how elections are done.  We already find ourselves living under severe voter fraud but neither political party will acknowledge fraud, much less do anything to stop it.

The “battle” between the parties is merely a dog and pony show to make We the People think someone actually cares about the voice of the people.  I am sure we will find another “Gang of …” to get together for a “bi-partisan agreement” on how to solve the issue of “fair elections”.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

How “Marriage Equality” Could Destroy Everyone’s Liberty

chained

Whenever the phrase “equality” is used to make anything legal, look out, it’s not about fairness or liberty; it’s about having whatever one personally wants no matter the consequences to society and life in general.

The phrase “equality” is a very compelling argument. After all, here in the United States where liberty reigns and the Constitution upholds our natural rights to God-given liberty, we don’t want to take away anyone’s liberty.

Everything beyond our natural rights is a privilege individuals must work for—unless it is marriage. In that case, we are talking about something that has never been equal, because religions and societies are not equal.

Marriage is not listed in the Constitution, and for good reason: Marriage is a religious liberty instituted by God before governments ever existed. Government did not create marriage, government should never be allowed to dictate marriage or people will indeed lose private life. That’s why marriage is state-by-state.

But don’t think for one moment government would not like to get its expansive paws on marriage and dictate the rules of marriage and divorce.

Think about it: Do citizens apply for marriage licenses in Washington, D.C. or local town and city halls? If Americans sought D.C.’s permission to obtain marriage licenses, leaders would have the power to control how and when individuals marry, and heaven forbid, control marital life.

So, whenever Americans hear talk of “marriage equality,” look out, it’s an open door for government to finally become completely involved in private life, and when that happens, don’t think marriage affirmative action won’t be next on the list.

And therein lay the problem and questions no one’s asking both sides of the marriage argument.

What would the government do if marriage is taken from individual state’s and those rights are handed over to federal power?

There goes another Fourth Amendment liberty right down the tubes!

We must ask serious questions rather than assuming “that will never happen in America,” because too much of what we thought would “never happen here” already has and we are on the verge of all-out socialism.

Do readers really want marriage socialized and determined by the Federal Government? Could the Federal Government actually take control of marriage if given power to define marriage? If so, what are the possible repercussions?

If the Federal Government is given power over marriage, it would no longer be a state-by-state issue; a state’s right.

If the Federal Government has the power to define marriage, Washington could hold all Christian churches in contempt of the law if they refuse to perform same sex marriages.

Suppose the Federal Government were to twist Biblical scriptures “Judge  not lest you be judged,” and “whoever casts the first stone,”  falsely claiming scriptures demand no church can say no to same sex marriage or churches are violating scripture. Just imagine the Federal Government holding churches in contempt of the scriptures.

Never put anything past those who want to control the lives of citizens and use the Bible as a weapon against Christianity.

There goes more religious freedom.

Americans aren’t taking into account religious freedom; not having government impose its will upon our lives, which includes marriage. If we completely lose religious freedom, and we’ve lost much to the Left, Americans will in fact lose all liberty, because religious freedom is the foundation of this country.

Open the doors and let government into marriage and we wind up saying “I do” to the government.

As if we aren’t already.

Again, marriage has never been government instituted, but many determined to have rights to marry in all 50 states by-way-of  federal government mandate are not considering facts: They too will lose all rights to private life if the Federal Government is allowed to define and mandate marriage.

If given power to define marriage and give it “equality,” government could have power to define and determine who gets married and when.

How does Marriage Affirmative Action sound to readers?

Suppose the Federal Government said Christians can’t be married this year because the Federal Government does not have an equal quota on all marriages Christian, Jewish, gay, Hindu, Atheist, Muslim, black, white, Asian, etc.?

What if  race-card panderers, who claim America is too white, place a quota on white marriages to lesson American’s birthing more whiteness?

Never assume power-hungry, vote-grabbing politicians, those with race-card platforms, and those who hate Christians and traditionalists, would never do any of the above to Americans.

Here’s another question: If the Federal Government has control over marriage, couldn’t it have the say over who can and cannot divorce?

Just imagine the Federal Government telling abused women they cannot divorce dangerous husbands who beat them.  Or denying Muslim women rights to divorce Muslim husbands threatening to behead wives, because Islam says women are second class citizens. Islam would no doubt demand Sharia Law marriage equality in America since it does in Europe. Abused women, Muslim and non-Muslim, already face difficulty when trying to free themselves from abusive situations; if government gets involved, government could say America has too much divorce, and then watch the real war on women begin.

Imagine the Federal Government not letting women divorce pedophile husbands on the grounds some claim pedophilia is a life-style choice, or, because some psychiatrists consider pedophilia a mental disorder that needs understanding and not condemnation.

Why would that be far-fetched when courts free pedophiles all the time on grounds of mental health disabilities rather than declaring them violent criminals and imprisoning them for life.

And let’s not forget divorce attorneys! They must rubbing their hands with glee over the fact they might become twice as wealthy if gay marriage is legalized in all 50 states.

Never assume this could not happen in a country where the Federal Government long-ago overreached it’s 17 Enumerated Powers into the states.

And let’s not forget polygamists; they consider their marriages religious liberty.

If Americans seriously think polygamists are not hoping the Supreme Court sides with gay marriage and the Federal Government makes marriage legal for everyone, America is wearing rose colored-glasses. Polygamists want equal rights to marriage,  they’ve already jumped on the bandwagon for “marriage equality” and are demanding federal rights to marry multiple wives, including young girls forced into polygamist marriages in Colorado City, Utah.

Hey, give one group rights to marry, you must then provide full liberty and equality to all, right?

No one realizes how much power “marriage equality” holds for government to overreach state’s further and completely intrude on and order everyone’s fourth Amendment rights if marriage is government controlled.

Don’t ever think the Federal Government would never do that.

Gun Control And The Political Spin Machine

Eagle-I willl not sit Eagle

I recently found an interesting post on Facebook that is a good example of the political spin machine being used in Bible, flag, guns, Our rightsan attempt to abolish the 2nd Amendment, and the rest of our freedoms along with it.  This post had nothing to do with gun control directly but is a fine example of how the left is going about turning the United States of America into a Marxist dictatorship.  I don’t even know if this post is real or just made up by someone with a great sense of humor, but that doesn’t matter.  What matters is the effect it had.  The headline of the post was as follows:

WOW!!!

 Obama rated 5th best U.S. President ever

 Of the total of 44 US Presidents: Obama rated 5th best president ever. I was just reading a Democratic publicity release that said, “…after a little more than 4 years, Obama has been rated the 5th best president ever.”

How does this sit with you?  Do you agree or disagree from the information offered in the heading?  The Facebook comments ran from outrage to disbelief to mild profanity.  I shared the post and then spent nearly an hour monitoring this one story.  Many of the responses show how little attention that even high information voters sometimes pay to what they read, or hear.  I don’t find many liberals on my friends list so I can only imagine how the low information liberal took this headline and snippet of the story.Eagle 2nd Amendment

It is critical that we pay very close attention to not only the entire item/story but who wrote it, from what perspective it comes, and if there is any fact behind what is written.  Some of those who made derogatory remarks are people I am familiar with on Facebook, and as such, know a lot about their political stance.  I had a lot of fun making the remark; “take a moment, wipe the egg off your face, and read it again, ALL OF IT!!”

Some came back after wiping egg off their faces and some just went on like nothing happened.  The “rest of the story”, as Paul Harvey is famous for saying, is as follows:

 The details..:

 1. Reagan, Lincoln, and 8 others tied for first

 2. 15 presidents tied for second

 3. 17 other presidents tied for third

 4. Jimmy Carter came in 4th

 5. Obama fifth

For the explanatory benefit of low information voters, this means Barack Obama (Osama bin Obama) is the worst president in the history of America according to this list, even worse than Mr. Peanut, Jimmy Carter   The most interesting thing to me is the spin used to make Obama look like a real president, rather than the Marxist wanna-be dictator that he really is.  In this Universal Registraton Resultsday of information overload, people often either don’t read a story, don’t read all of it, or base a decision on a headline or story line that may or may not accurately reflect the content of the story.  This is especially prevalent in left wing spin machines such as the Democrat Party and their leftist minion network outlets, along with their allies in the Republican Party establishment.

This is how propaganda works.  Propagandists often use facts but twist them to come to a conclusion that has nothing to do with the facts stated.  In this case the headline and snippet of the story tells the truth based on the list provided but when one reads to the end and actually takes the time to think about what they just read one comes out with a totally different perspective.  Those who read the first five words and then commented made comments that were totally off-base and came out looking rather foolish.  I am not criticizing these people as I have done the same thing in the past myself, and learned the hard way that a premature comment is often an “egg on the face” experience that is embarrassing.  In this case several came back with a laugh and said, “Oops”. Don't Tread On Me

It was all in good fun but illustrates the danger of jumping in before you know the depth and temperature of the water.  People can be led into a lot of bad situations when they jump to conclusions.  This one merely made some people look foolish but this kind of situation can lead to tragic circumstances.  A good example is the treatment of the Jews in Nazi Germany, and the “Night of the Long Knives” that Hitler used as an excuse to arrest and murder thousands of innocent people who were guilty of nothing but being born non-Aryan or not belonging to his Nazi Party.

Those who seek to destroy our Republic and enslave We the People use this kind of tactic a great deal and we can expect this to only get worse as the battle for liberty intensifies.  If liberty-minded citizens have any hope of winning this battle we must make certain that we don’t fall for any propaganda, from any source.  Low information republican logovoters and those who desire a free ride at the expense of others will either ignore facts, refuse to analyze them objectively, or feed the spin with the hope of increasing their own benefits at the expense of others.

When politicians, in both political parties, talk about how many citizens support some form of gun control they use this same tactic.  Polls are designed to get the outcome desired by those conducting the poll.  A good example would be a question I saw a while back.  I don’t remember the exact wording but it went something like:  “Do you favor laws to keep guns out of the hands of mentally deranged people?”  Well, of course!!!  No one wants to see Charles Manson with a firearm but liberal spinners can use it to say you favor gun control, or stronger mental health restrictions on gun owners.  Diane Feinstein recently came out and declared all veterans to be mentally ill http://beforeitsnews.com/economy/2013/03/feinstein-all-vets-are-mentally-ill-and-government-should-prevent-them-from-owning-firearms-2497870.html.  By using this question in a poll she could say that the citizens support restrictions on veterans owning firearms.

The moral of this story is to look before you leap.  Make sure you know the whole story, not just the headlines.  Be sure you know what a politician is actually proposing, not just the talking points they put out.  Remember theDemomcrat Logo “glories” of Obamacare?  Don’t fall victim to a false story, a false “common sense” firearm restriction, or the false flag actions of those who seek to destroy everything we find precious.

Obama’s America Becoming a Police State

Obama's Gestapo

The video link here is beyond chilling.  The most chilling aspect of its beginning is the looks on the faces of the people.  These are people who seem to be surprised and confused.  These things don’t happen Obama's Gestapohere!  It often seems as though things happen overnight but it doesn’t happen that way.

Tyranny doesn’t happen over-night.  It happens in a series of events that build on themselves until you wake up one morning and life as you know it is gone forever, liberty is a thing of the past.  Adolph Hitler didn’t just start rounding up Jews on a whim.  He spent years putting the infrastructure in place to install his totalitarian state.  They had control of everything; the media, the child indoctrination centers they referred to as “public schools”, the monetary and economic structure, and national and local police departments.  Hitler and his henchmen made Jews the scapegoats.  Friends and neighbors soon began to hate Jews for who they were. German citizens bought into the blame game and generations of co-existence was gone in 6 years, all due to propaganda in the government controlled media and the government controlled schools.

The Aryan German people let Hitler have the Jews, and even helped him, because he was leaving them alone.  Then one day he struck; swiftly, efficiently, thoroughly, and without warning!!  The average German citizen woke up and found the Gestapo at their door because a disagreement over a debt, or a minor insult to a neighbor orhitler4 stranger led to them being denounced as traitors over a grudge.  The Gestapo kicked in their door and dragged them out into the street.  Some were shot dead on the spot; some were taken to prisons and tortured by sadists seeking information that didn’t exist. Most were never seen again.

This happened to your everyday, patriotic German citizens.  They had gone about their lives, ignoring or accepting the things that happened over the years as Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels, Goering, Heydrich, and the rest ignored the rights of citizens and passed decrees that were “unlawful”.  Unlawful to whom???  Hitler didn’t see rounding up, “enemies of the state”, and shooting them as “unlawful”.

The people had seen what these men were doing but said, “it can’t happen here, we have a system of laws”.  They didn’t think Hitler was a despot.  He was a great leader, Der Fuhrer, who would never turn on his “Aryan” citizens.  He “cares about us”!!  Then one day the Jews were under control and he came back for them.

When Pastor Martin Neimoller made his famous “first they came for…” quote he could have been speaking about America’s society today.  Many will ridicule this video, and the whole concept of Nazi Germany, because “it can’t or it won’t happen here, we have a Constitution”.  But take a look at this picture and answer the question, “when did this; become this?”.  Police to GestapoOur society in the United States of America today mirrors the society of 1936 Germany.

Hitler offered money to those who turned in their neighbors.  New York City is now offering a $500 bounty for snitching on anyone possessing an “illegal weapon”.  Holding a grudge against someone?  Want to cause them some misery?  What is happening in America today HAS happened before and we are taking the exact same path they took then.  Apathy and denial are the two most dangerous states of mind in any free society.

How can people ignore or dismiss the Patriot Act, NDAA 2011 and its “indefinite detention without charge”, the TSA, the Department of Homeland Security, or the explosion of local SWAT teams and the military equipment they are being given by the federal government?  Policemen now kick in doors in the middle of the night dressed in black face masks and body armor head to toe.  The uniforms are just that, uniform around the nation.  The equipment and the tactics designed for an urban battlefield are being ”uniformly” spread to police departments and sheriff’s offices throughout the nation, and being funded with primarily federal funds.  Helicopters participate in “live fire” operations using blanks, in American cities, in conjunction with local police forces.  Why are they doing this???  Who are they going to round up and put in the FEMA camps that were a “figment of my imagination” in 2010?

How can anyone with any amount of cognitive ability not see where both political parties are taking us?  How does someone dismiss 2 billion rounds of ammunition, tens of thousands of full automatic “assault rifles”, and MRAP Urban Rescue Vehicle 2armored vehicles with gun ports and machine gun mounts operated by local law enforcement?  What SWAT team really needs this kind of firepower?  Who are they going to use this equipment against?

Both political parties refuse to secure the border and do anything about all the illegal aliens.  It is very apparent that they aren’t looking to round up illegal aliens so why do we find ourselves with an internal security apparatus having so much armament?  No Demomcrat Logofree nation has ever had this kind of domestic military force and remained free for long.  This is the SS and Brown Shirts of Nazi Germany being paraded before our very eyes yet many people deny there is any danger.  It reminds me of a joke where a woman catches her husband with another woman and he asks her “are you going to believe what I tell you or your LYING EYES”???

Conspiracy Theory??  At one time I thought so.  By themselves many of the events over the last 10-15 years pose no “clear and present danger”, but when they are looked at with an open mind and in the view of 20th Century history it is another vision altogether.  We the People are calledrepublican logo mentally unstable and enemies of the state by the “leadership” of both political parties.  Veterans who defended liberty are labeled as mentally ill by members of Congress.  Some have been “detained” and had their lawfully owned firearms confiscated in a clear abuse of the Constitution.

Can’t happen here?  Won’t Happen here???  Don’t bet your life on it!!!!  Are you going to believe what they tell you or are you going to believe “your lying eyes”???  Time is short and one morning Americans will wake up and find out their nation is in the grips of a totalitarian regime as evil as Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
