……………EXCERPT!!!!!!!!!!

…..While every word in our Founding Charter is important perhaps the second most important principle of freedom to understand is that Our Rights come from God – Not Government, therefore they are not subject to the Repeal or Restrictions of Human Laws.

The Declaration of Independence states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and pursuit of Happiness.

The American Political System is About to Implode

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD March 6, 2014

The Obama Administration is in a death spiral, mortally wounded by its own messianic left-wing ideology, naiveté, incompetence, lawlessness and persistent lying.

Barack Obama aspired to be Jesus by acting like Stalin.

For a change, let’s start being honest about the shameful condition of our political system. If the Constitution and the rule of law had been enforced, instead of the tenets of political correctness, Obama would have already resigned, been impeached or he may not have been elected at all.

Obama making good on promise to eliminate free speech | Intellihub News

February 15, 2014 2 comments

By Dave Hodges

(INTELLIHUB) – Prior to the 2012 election, David Axerlrod, announced that Obama would push for a constitutional amendment to rollback free speech if he was re-elected. Obama is making good on that promise. Obama’s promise to destroy free speech combined with the passage of the NDAA, constitutes a lethal cocktail for all freedom loving Americans.

Happy Birthday Marines and Others!!!!!

THE MARINES! SINCE 1775… OR 1798?
THE TRUE BIRTHDAY OF THE CORPS!

July 11, 1798?

November 10, 1775

From MarineLINK

“… When the peace treaty with Britain finally was signed in 1783, only the Continental frigate Alliance was still in commission. A small Marine guard commanded by Lieutenant Thomas Elwood stayed with the frigate until Congress decided to sell the vessel in September. With the sale of the Alliance, the Continental Navy and Marines went out of existence.”

From, The United States Marines A History, by BGen Ed Simmons…

“…As for the Marines, only the slenderest thread of continuity can be claimed by virtue of “marines” serving in the Revenue Cutter Service…There were to be Marine “quotas”…not “detachments” for there was no corps from which they could be detached…
…on 11 July 1798, the true birthday of the Corps,
President John Adams approved…establishing and organizing a Marine Corps.”

Customs and Traditions
Marine Corps Birthday Celebration

“The U.S. Marine Corps begins preparations for its “birthday party” every summer. Activities become more feverish as the fall hues arrive. By early November, every Marine is either rehearsing his role in the “party” or pressing, polishing, and spit-shining in order to appear at his or her best for the Birthday Ball. This has not always been the case, however. In fact, Marines have not always celebrated their founding on November the 10th.

Formal commemoration of the birthday of the Marine Corps began on 10 November 1921. That particular date was chosen because on that day the Second Continental Congress resolved in 1775 to raise two battalions of Continental Marines.

Now that the prospects of a second Obama administration are hitting home, the pace of a rapid deterioration are confronting all thinking Americans. The radical transformation that is centrally planned for the economy and authoritarianism administrated by the statists that are part of the most tyrannical regime in memory, is taking place before our eyes.

Falling off the cliff is more like descending into the abyss of martial law contrived to eliminate the last remnants of independent citizens. Advocating for civil liberties is treated as a criminal act and the gun culture is looked upon as the preview of a terrorist cell.

 

Several decades ago, the label of being a survivalist painted a prepared person as odd if not deranged. Today the “prepper” is demeaned as an enemy of the state. The Obama dependency society demands that government is the dispenser of all wants and needs. The threat to the state from a prepared population has become a primary target of the New World Order minions.

to calling the president anything that resembled the titles of European monarchs, yet John Adams proceeded to recommend the title:

 

“His Highness, the President of the United States, and Protector of their Liberties,” an attempt to imitate the titles of the British monarch: “By the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, Prince-Elector of Hannover, Duke of Brunswick” and the French monarch: “By the Grace of God, Most Christian King of France and Navarre.” Some senators favored “His Elective Majesty” or “His Excellency” the latter of which would become the standard form of address for elected presidents of later republics. James Madison, a member of the House of Representatives, would have none of it.

Prison Planet.com » U.S. Bilderberg Attendees Violating Federal Law, Activists Say

As a shadowy collection of the world’s power brokers gathers in Chantilly, Virginia, for the elite Bilderberg conference this weekend under unprecedented media scrutiny, activists from across the political spectrum are arguing that U.S. citizens attending the controversial confab are potentially committing a felony by violating the Logan Act.

And while the chances of charges being brought anytime soon are probably slim, anti-Bilderberg protesters admit, more than a few critics of the meeting are still loudly calling for federal prosecutions to bring any and all perpetrators to justice.

These words of caution provide a reflective focus back verses the present while portraying just how far away we have drifted from America’s original design. Without the set limitations erected by our Founding Fathers, the freedom which they sacrificed to obtain becomes a destructive weapon leading to our demise.Freedom, at its most elementary level, requires limitations.

I mean, how may freedom be enjoyed if unrestrained? In that context, who is without possible harm? So no, freedom demands its own shoreline, its own useful precautions. It must since the freedom to act within a society works hand in hand with its required do’s and don’ts. Today, what we are experiencing is the elimination of those societal barriers and along with it, our willing acquiesce to unbounded freedoms. Black or white is turning into gray.In support of freedom, through its limiting influences is our waning religious devotion and attendance.

Check on any given Sunday, either from participation or observing those leaving their particular place of worship. The age discrepancy is obvious. Only a fool would not agree that our houses for worship are on borrowed time. And as John Adams warned, without a “moral and religious people,” our government is inadequate.What is taking place is intentional and reeks of a conspiratorial design.

The United States is no longer what John Adams described as a government of laws and not of men. It has become the opposite.

Many of those presently in the federal government have violated their oaths of office to support and defend the Constitution, they have obstructed justice and they have scorned and rejected citizens’ attempts to petition for the redress of grievances.

The continuous stonewalling by both parties’ elite is clearly directed toward preventing an investigation that would reveal a federal government riddled with corruption and that operates solely for the benefit of politicians and their wealthy power-brokers.

The conspiracy of silence by the political establishments and the associated news blackout by a compliant media can only be explained by complicity in a cover-up of criminal acts that, if they became known, would enrage the American people and rock the political system to its core.

If there is another explanation, I would like to know it.

The plain fact is that if the candidates were fully vetted and the activities of the Democrat and Republican establishments were fully known, the American people would rise up in open rebellion.

Between now and Election Day, there is a window of opportunity to fight the permanent political corruption in Washington, D.C., restore the Constitution and uphold the rule of law. After that, it is “Game Over.”

As Abraham Lincoln noted, the American people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.  The loyalty of the American people is to our country and our Constitution, not to shady officeholders or petty bureaucrats.

For too long we have been silent and inattentive. We must now overthrow those responsible for the endemic corruption in our federal government.

George Zimmerman: the black, Hispanic, Peruvian, kind-hearted non-white, not-racist poster boy

April 26, 2012 1 comment

“Facts are stubborn things.”

I love that quotation. John Adams said it back in 1774 when he took on the unpopular job of defending the British troops charged with the killings in the event now known as the Boston Massacre. Arguing off those same stubborn facts, Adams was able to get those troops acquitted.

“Facts are stubborn things.” You can lie about them and you can try to bury them, but they have a bad habit of revealing themselves. Sometimes, these revelations can take decades or even centuries, but sometimes — especially in a modern media age — those stubborn facts demand to be heard within days or weeks of the initial lies.

And so it is with the lies the media told about George Zimmerman.

“He’s a white man.” Wrong, so the media came up the tortured white-Hispanic. Turns out that even that is wrong. Zimmerman is also part black. Brutally Honest has the perfect summation: “In a delicious irony, it is Zimmerman who might actually look more like the son Obama never had.” Read more…

Targeting Free Expression | Veterans Today

March 4, 2012 Leave a comment

Free expression in all forms is fundamental in democratic societies. Without it, all other freedoms are at risk.

Included are free speech, a free press, freedom of thought, culture, and intellectual inquiry. It also includes the right to challenge government authority peacefully, especially in times of war and cases of injustice, lawlessness, official incompetence, and abusive government behavior.

U.S. Supreme Court building.

Denying it risks tyranny. Voltaire defended it, saying “I may disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Howard Zinn called dissent “the highest form of patriotism.” It includes the right to speak and write freely, assemble, protest publicly, and associate with anyone for any reason lawfully.

Democracy depends on it. Bill of Rights freedoms affirm it. Nonetheless, US history is strewn with abusive laws. The 1798 Sedition Act criminalized publishing “false, scandalous and malicious writing” against President John Adams or Congress, but allowed it against Vice President Thomas Jefferson.

The 1917 Espionage Act imprisoned anyone convicted of “insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, or (encouraging) refusal of duty in the military or naval forces of the United States.”

It targeted First Amendment speech against WW I and American’s participation in it. The 1918 Sedition Act went further. It criminalized “disloyal, scurrilous (or) abusive” anti-government speech.

In the Year 1839, John Quincy Adams, son of John Adams, and himself a President of the United States, was invited by the New York Historical Society to speak on the 50th Anniversary under the Constitution. His extensive “Jubilee” Address can be read here. The following relatively short review of the history he summarized in the final portion of his Address is excerpted here:

The President himself is no more than a representative of public opinion at the time of his election; and as public opinion is subject to great and frequent fluctuations, he must accommodate his policy to them; or the people will speedily give him a successor; or either House of Congress will effectually control his power. It is thus, and in no other sense that the Constitution of the United States is democratic – for the government of our country, instead of a Democracy the most simple, is the most complicated government on the face of the globe. From the immense extent of our territory, the difference of manners, habits, opinions, and above all, the clashing interests of the North, South, East, and West, public opinion formed by the combination of numerous aggregates, becomes itself a problem of compound arithmetic, which nothing but the result of the popular elections can solve.

Prosecutors in New York City have decided that the dissemination of truth near American courthouses threatens to rock the very foundations of the American legal system.

For years, retired Penn State chemistry professor Julian Heicklen has handed out literature to passersby in front of the Manhattan courthouse, informing them of the rights of jurors. As stated by the Fully Informed Jury Association, “the primary function of the independent juror is not, as many think, to dispense punishment to fellow citizens accused of breaking various laws, but rather to protect fellow citizens from tyrannical abuses of power by government.”

The Men Who Destroyed the Constitution

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

…..After a lucid explanation of each section of the Constitution the judge discusses how the nationalist/mercantilist coalition, led by Alexander Hamilton and his accomplice Judge John Marshall, conspired to effectively rewrite (and undermine) the Constitution almost as soon as he ink was dry on the original copy.

The “Federalists” (who would eventually morph into the Whigs, and then the Republicans) never accepted their defeat in the Constitutional convention (which created a federal, not a national government). Nor did they accept Jefferson’s election as president.

Thus, two days before his term ended the Federalist President John Adams appointed dozens of “midnight federal judges” and appointed John Marshall to the Supreme Court on March 3, 1801, one day before he would leave office. Marshall “spent the remainder of his career finding clearly disingenuous, historically inaccurate, and highly questionable justifications for ruling that federal power is not limited,” writes Judge Napolitano.

In his most famous decision, Marbury vs. Madison, Marshall gave the federal judiciary the power to rule on the constitutionality of both statutory law and the behavior of the executive branch. “[T]his means that the Supreme Court granted itself the authority to declare the will of the people . . . null and void . . .” This of course has caused endless mischief and tyranny. This principle of a monopoly in reviewing constitutionality was not widely accepted, however, until after Lincoln’s war of 1861—1865 destroyed state sovereignty once and for all.

Until that point, many Americans believed that the citizens of the states, as well as the president and Congress, should have equally legitimate claims on interpreting the Constitution. As President Andrew Jackson famously said, “John Marshall has made his decision, now let him enforce it if he can.”

Marshall and his fellow Federalists, such as Justice Story, also paved the way for the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution. This clause only grants “supremacy” to the central government on the seventeen specific functions of the central government that are delineated in Article I, Section 8, period, many of which have to do with waging war and foreign policy.

This power has been grossly abused by implying that the central government is somehow “supreme” in anything and everything vis-à-vis the citizens of the states. This of course is a perfect recipe for tyranny.

Judge Napolitano recognized that it was Federalists like Joseph Story and John Marshall, and later Whig politicians like Daniel Webster and Abraham Lincoln, who would tell The Big Lie that the Constitution was ratified by “the whole people” and not as it actually was — by the citizens of the sovereign states, with their representatives assembled in state conventions. “That was both historically incorrect and intellectually dishonest,” says Judge Napolitano.

According to this false view of the American founding the central government was always the master, not the servant, of the people. This, too, is a perfect recipe for tyranny that has been made by tyrants everywhere (Hitler even invoked this argument in Mein Kampf to make his case for destroying state sovereignty in Germany)…..

A LETTER TO A MEMBER OF THE NH HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

by Lawrence Sellin, ©2011

John Adams was a Founding Father and the second President of the U.S. He believed firmly in a “republican” form of government.

(Nov. 25, 2011) — Sir,

Thank you for your response. First, let me wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.

The core arguments of my articles are that the Democrat and Republican parties at the national level, i.e., the Congress and the national committees are corrupt and they do not uphold the Constitution. Obama and his Administration are simply the most flagrant examples.

Except for Rick Perry, to some extent, and Sarah Palin as a non-candidate, no Republican candidate has directly addressed the issue of corruption, which, for me, is the central issue of our time.

Nor has the leadership of the Republican Party taken a stand on Obama’s ineligibility for the Presidency (it does not matter where he was born, see article below) or his crimes both before and after occupying the Oval Office.

In fact, the Republican Party has joined the Democrats and the mainstream media to suppress discussion of these issues, have actively distributed misinformation and deliberately misdirected citizens.

Hundreds of my readers have written one or more letters to their Congressional representatives about these issues only to be ignored or ridiculed.

The Men Who Destroyed the Constitution

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

DIGG THIS

In his 1850 Disquisition on Government, John C. Calhoun argued that a written constitution would never be sufficient to contain the plundering proclivities of a central government. Some mechanisms for assuring consensus among the citizens of the states regarding “federal” laws would be necessary. Consequently, Calhoun proposed giving citizens of the states veto power over federal laws that they believed were unconstitutional (the “concurrent majority”). He also championed the Jeffersonian idea of nullification. To Calhoun (and Jefferson), states’ rights meant that the citizens of the states were sovereign over the central government that they created as their agent, and could only be so if such mechanisms – including the right of secession – existed.

Without these political mechanisms the forces of nationalism, mercantilism, and political plunder would relentlessly reshape the Constitution with their rhetoric, and their efforts would eventually overwhelm the strict constructionists. At that point the Constitution would become a dead letter.

In his new book, The Constitution in Exile, Judge Andrew Napolitano explains in very clear language just how prescient Calhoun was. The biggest special-interest group of all – the federal government itself – has “seized power by rewriting the supreme law of the land,” as Judge Napolitano says in the subtitle to his book. Just as Calhoun predicted. The purpose of the book, says the judge, is to tell “the unhappy story of liberty lost, federalism trampled, and Big Government run amok.” How did we get to the point, he asks, of where the “federal” (i.e., central) government defines for us the drinking age for alcohol, how much wheat farmers can grow, the ability of terminally ill cancer patients to medicate themselves with marijuana, the amount of sugar that can be used in ketchup, and even the size of toilets?

Unlike the neocons who surround Judge Napolitano in his appearances on the FOX News Channel, he understands that freedom comes “from God and is inherent to our humanity . . .” “Freedom” is not derived from military adventurism under the guise of phony humanitarianism, as the David Horowitz/William Kristol/Rush Limbaugh/ crowd would have us believe. (For an amusing rendition of this fascistic theory take a look at the web site of the “David Horowitz Freedom Center“).

Judge Napolitano is one libertarian who is not intimidated by the forces of political correctness, a defining feature of so many “beltway libertarians.” Consequently, he is not afraid to recognize the truth about the American founding: “The states were sovereign entities that the Continental Congress could not directly control. Essentially, there was no binding central government” Even better, “Congress could not tax the people of the United states (Ah, the good old days!)” Advocates of centralized governmental power have long falsely associated statements about states’ rights with racism and slavery, which has intimidated most beltway libertarians, but not Judge Napolitano.

After a lucid explanation of each section of the Constitution the judge discusses how the nationalist/mercantilist coalition, led by Alexander Hamilton and his accomplice Judge John Marshall, conspired to effectively rewrite (and undermine) the Constitution almost as soon as he ink was dry on the original copy. The “Federalists” (who would eventually morph into the Whigs, and then the Republicans) never accepted their defeat in the Constitutional convention (which created a federal, not a national government).

Did You Love America?

July 21, 2011 Leave a comment

Do you realize our country, the country many of us loved, and were willing to lay down our lives for, is no more? Don’t despair my fellow refugees and citizens of our beloved former America, but please do come to terms with the fact that our country was ill and dying for decades and it has now ceased to exist as we once knew it.

Nevertheless, this is not intended as an essay of gloom, but as a signpost denoting the reality of where we are, and an ensign for some, of the second American Revolution that has already begun without them. During its lifespan, the United States had forty and four men who called themselves President, but history likely will record the official number as forty-three, with George W. Bush as its last, and among the worst in the first dispensation of American independence.

John Adams loved the spirit of revolution inspired by Thomas Paine’s pamphlet, Common Sense, but he also bemoaned at length the “leveling spirit” of unbridled democracy. Adams correctly believed, there was no good government that was not a Republic. He felt there was not yet sufficient civic virtue in the colonies to support a Republic, and so he counseled against immediate abandonment of the accepted property-based franchise in determining a right to vote.

Adams was concerned that every man without a farthing would eventually, “demand an equal voice in all the acts of state.” Even though his lament included women and children voting, his point was clear considering the times, that only those who had the wherewithal to think and act rationally should be allowed to vote. Otherwise we would suffer a democratic legislature that would use “the will of the people” to enforce tyranny…which is precisely where we are today.

To a point, Adams had been somewhat conservative in his approach to independence compared to his more radical contemporaries. He was home in Braintree when he heard news of British troops firing on the Minutemen at Lexington, and at that instant, John Adams ceased to be a disgruntled subject of the King…but rather, he and many others, were instantly transformed by that act of aggression, into 100% red-blooded Americans.

In early March of 1775, American and British cannons roared at the Siege of Boston, rattling windows in Braintree some twelve miles away. John Adams’ wife Abigail and their children were in Braintree, where she wrote to her husband, “Cannon continued firing and my heart kept pace with them all night.” Adams had left his cherished wife and children to fend for themselves, and his once prestigious law practice had vanished in his absence. What was it that drove the “Host of Worthies,” as Jefferson called them fifty years later, to such extreme action?

While Southern aristocrats called for peace, and insisted that British commissioners were on their way to reconcile with the colonies, Adams dismissed such hope as an “airy fairy,” and pushed for escalation of the war. In May, Adams wrote Abigail and told her Great Britain had, “at last driven America to the last step, a complete separation from her.” He said there is, “something unnatural and extremely odious in a government 1000 leagues off. A whole government of our own choice, managed by Persons whom We love, revere and can confide in, has charms in it, for which Men will fight.”

And there it is…good government for which men will fight, and the odiousness of a government 1000 leagues off. How far off are the puppet masters pulling the strings of the usurper in the White House and our deaf representatives from both political parities? We have come full circle…we are again but a collection of colonies wanting representation, but not getting it, needing protection from a foreign invasion, but having the invasion aided by those who should, but do not protect our borders.

Our national seat of government is under siege, our country is in dire straits, and we are without a pulse of representation, but the nation’s lifeblood is in her people, and the nation’s heart beats within our own breasts where the Constitution is indelibly written…and there is where it lives on, not in Washington. The first dispensation of American independence took a deadly detour under FDR, and has just recently passed away from the affliction.

It is now up to us to insure that the invading government run by the tyranny of democratic mob rule does not stand, but that a Republic rededicated to the rule of law and limited by our Constitution, shall not perish from the earth. Restoring America and American liberty will require a complete rejection of the illegal presidency of the Obama administration, and a complete removal of both houses of Congress, but it can be done.

John Adams returned to Boston the morning after the Boston Tea Party. He wrote in his diary, “Last night, 3 Cargoes of Bohea Tea were emptied into the Sea. This morning a Man of War sails. This is the most magnificent Movement of all. There is a Dignity, a Majesty, a Sublimity in this last Effort of the Patriots that I greatly admire. This Destruction of the Tea is so bold, so daring, so firm, intrepid, & inflexible, and it must have so important Consequences and so lasting, that I cannot but consider it as an Epocha in History…The Question is whether the Destruction of this Tea was necessary? I apprehend it was absolutely and indispensably so.”

Obama’s ineligibility: Has the time come for rebellion?

July 14, 2011 Leave a comment

We are experiencing, in real-time, the destruction of the Constitution and a flagrant disregard for the rule of law by elected officials and government bureaucrats, who are deliberately hiding the truth from the American people.

We must overthrow those responsible. For too long we have been silent and inattentive.

The loyalty of the American people is to the country and the Constitution, not to shady officeholders or petty bureaucrats.

The disdain demonstrated by the state-run media will also have its day of reckoning, as President Theodore Roosevelt stated:

“To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

The American people must now send an unambiguous message to the political elite that the usurpation of power and the selective application of the law are not legitimized by acquiescence or repetition.

As John Adams cautioned Americans:

“If we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it… Be not intimidated… nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.”

We must not permit Obama to run for President in 2012 without a proper investigation of his background and the truth disclosed.

If our government shirks its responsibility, then it is our patriotic duty as citizens to act.

Michele Bachmann was right. The Founding Founders did fight against slavery

“There is not a man living who wishes more sincerely than I do, to see a plan adopted for the abolition of it.”

- George Washington, letter to Robert Morris, April 12, 1786

“Every measure of prudence, therefore, ought to be assumed for the eventual total extirpation of slavery from the United States. … I have, throughout my whole life, held the practice of slavery in … abhorrence.”

- John Adams, letter to Robert Evans, June 8, 1819

“It is much to be wished that slavery may be abolished. The honour of the States, as well as justice and humanity, in my opinion, loudly call upon them to emancipate these unhappy people. To contend for our own liberty, and to deny that blessing to others, involves an inconsistency not to be excused.”

Enemies within the Patriot Movement

Like conservatives, libertarians claim to want smaller government, lower taxes and fiscal sanity. It sounds good on the surface. But, unlike conservatives, libertarians are happy to let social ills run wild, so long as nobody sends them the tab for the natural consequences of a society without moral limits.

True constitutional conservatives understand what John Adams meant when he said – “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Libertarians make no such connection…

The Unsavory Outcome

The net outcome of all of this can only be described as “a house divided.”

Blood of Patriots: Learning From History…The Sedition Act. by Debbie Lewis

Blood of Patriots:

Learning From History…The Sedition Act. by Debbie Lewis:

“A hero to many, Federalist John Adam was considered a significant Founding Father and was also the new country’s second President. Having fought for our freedoms and participated in the forming of our new nation, a few of the things he did after taking office should significantly offend all liberty loving Americans.

Brought to light in the newly released film, Blood of Patriots, in 1798, just seven years after the ratification of the Bill of Rights, Adams signed into law the egregious Alien and Sedition Acts. For some, this set of laws was seen as protection from people living in the US from countries with which the US was possibly heading to war.

For others, it was a stab at the very freedoms they held so dear.

Would the US Military Stand Down and ‘Empower a Revolution’ If Faced With Riots and Civil Unrest? by Mac Slavo

Or, to just prevent martial law from being effective….I might add.

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/would-us-military-stand-down-and-empower-a-revolution_03252011

Myself, I think, NO…a potus would not allow such a thing; nor would the generals and admirals consider allowing such a thing on their own.

What the troops think/do themselves is beside the point, as they would, for the most part, ultimately follow orders in any case. But some reading this would question this point too.Those, if any, who failed to follow orders would be… ineffective.

This question can be likened to the members of the scotus, congress and other responsible individuals and groups who are said to have failed to do the right thing in many instances in recent history, and actually throughout our history.
Many reasons have been cited for this…but here we are up to our arses in alligators w/o a paddle, so to speak.

This is a question that many have turned over in their minds but are reluctant to speak on, and for good reason due to…call it PC…at one level or another.

MILITARY INTELLIGENCE on THE NEW HIROSHIMA Capt May

MILITARY INTELLIGENCE on THE NEW HIROSHIMA

Capt May
<captainmay@prodigy.net>


Greetings, CPT May! I’ve never been a big follower of your past Space Shuttle analysis, with its assertion that the SS is up there for command and control (C-2) of ‘events’ down here on earth. However, this 3-11-11 Japanese situation, and the Shuttle landing just a day or two earlier, is just too much of a coincidence for this retired military intelligence soldier. I look forward to reading your analysis, which I find has just been published. — SFC Buswell

Excerpt…
“Whether earthquakes are tied to global warming, or to … HAARP, which some scientists say is utilized by the military to drastically alter weather patterns …, the increased number (of earthquakes is) worthy of concern and of additional study.” — Earthquakes: Global Warming or HAARP?

Alas Japan,  which had been designated for destruction, and delivered to death.

“Texas has just proclaimed the capture of a Saudi student who, they say, meant to attack nuclear powder plants.All of this makes me suspect that Discovery has a combat mission against us earthbound sitting ducks. The most likely targets are U.S. evacuees from Libya, nuclear power plants and Ron Paul’s district.” — The False Flag Space Shuttle

After the Revolution…Pat Buchanan

March 11, 2011 3 comments

…”Democracy … arises out of the notion that those who are equal in any respect are equal in all respects,” said Aristotle.

But if the Philosopher disliked the form of government that arose out of the fallacy of human equality, the Founding Fathers detested it.

“A democracy is nothing more than mob rule,” said Thomas Jefferson, “where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49.” James Madison agreed, “Democracy is the most vile form of government.

” Their Federalist rivals concurred.”Democracy,” said John Adams, “never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”

“You people, sir, is a great beast,” Alexander Hamilton is said to have remarked.

If he did not, it was not far from his view.Said John Winthrop, the Pilgrim father whose vision of a “city on a hall” so inspired Ronald Reagan, “A democracy is … accounted the meanest and worst form of government.

“But did not the fathers create modernity’s first democracy?

No. They created “a republic, if you can keep it,” as Ben Franklin said, when asked in Philadelphia what kind of government they had given us.

A constitutional republic, to protect and defend God-given rights that antedated the establishment of that government…………………………

Je$$e Jackson Jr. and his buddies in the Democratic Party are very interested in the real “reason” (singular) for the War of Northern Aggression. They want “open, honest” dialogue in the next 4 years about the cause of it (yeah, right).

Gunny G: A Democracy Or A Republic, and Why!

February 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Why do so many who should know better speak of America as a democracy rather than a Republic?

Find out why!Now!

Democracy is the most vile form of government… democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention: have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths. James Madison

The Accidental Congressman – Reason Magazine

February 2, 2011 Leave a comment

There are two reasons why Broun’s career is worth examining closely. The first is Broun himself. He compares himself happily to Rep. Ron Paul R-Texas, the anti-war libertarian presidential candidate: Both men are physicians who carry pocket Constitutions and often find themselves on the losing side of congressional votes. Broun likes Paul, but he doesn’t share Paul’s views on Iraq and won’t make a presidential endorsement. The day he was sworn in, Broun joined just 13 other Republicans and 150 Democrats in supporting a bill to call off raids by the Drug Enforcement Administration on medical marijuana distributors. He was one of only four congressmen to oppose the Drug Endangered Children Act, which allocated $20 million to take care of children living among drugs and drug dealers, and one of three to vote against establishing a new registry to keep track of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis “Lou Gehrig’s disease”.

Asked about both votes, Broun hauls out his Constitution and flips it open to Article I, Section 8. “We don’t have authority to create things like that,” he says. “This lists the functions of the federal government, and it’s about a page and a half long. I’d say most of the things this Congress does, we don’t actually have the authority to do.”Broun worries that interpretation of the Constitution has been off for a very long time. “Maybe it was when they decided Marbury v. Madison when the courts hijacked the Constitution,” he says. “I think you can go back to John Adams with the Alien and Sedition Acts that passed when he was president. The thing is, human nature is such that people want to garner more power. What fuels the great growth of government—and I’m talking about more and more centralization from local governments to state governments, from state governments to the federal government—is that basic human nature.”Broun doesn’t share his party’s thinking on what the U.S. should be doing during a “war on terror.”

Asked if he agrees with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney that the biggest threat facing the country is Islamic terrorism, he shakes his head. “No,” he says, “our biggest threat is a lack of understanding of what the Constitution says and what the Founding Fathers meant for it to say. We’ve left that behind.”

Gunny G: TRUE AND/OR FALSE??? IT’s GETTING HARDER TO TELL THE LAST FEW YEARS !!!!!

URGENT! URGENT! READ IMMEDIATELY! URGENT!
http://wideawakenewsdata.yolasite.com/urgent.php

This one (URL above) has been making its way around the Net the last several days now–both online and email–anyone seen anything else on this or close?

Is this just one they want us to see while the fourth estate is not talking about it; or is it just another dose of misinfo/disinfo for “wee the sheeple” ???

Don’t be too skeered to shout out now if ya know!

Semper Wondering…

“Lincoln increased the power of the federal government at the expense of the rights of the states and civil liberties. This opened the door to more unconstitutional acts by the government in the 1900s through to today.”

The Men Who Destroyed the Constitution

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

DIGG THIS

In his 1850 Disquisition on Government, John C. Calhoun argued that a written constitution would never be sufficient to contain the plundering proclivities of a central government. Some mechanisms for assuring consensus among the citizens of the states regarding “federal” laws would be necessary. Consequently, Calhoun proposed giving citizens of the states veto power over federal laws that they believed were unconstitutional (the “concurrent majority”). He also championed the Jeffersonian idea of nullification. To Calhoun (and Jefferson), states’ rights meant that the citizens of the states were sovereign over the central government that they created as their agent, and could only be so if such mechanisms – including the right of secession – existed.

Blame the Electorate, Not Congress, For America’s Woes

October 27, 2010 2 comments

Even though Charlie Reese retired over two years ago as a syndicated columnist, several of his columns continue to orbit cyberspace. Not too long ago one of Reese’s pieces landed in my e-mail box for the umpteenth time. In his widely-distributed article originally titled “Looking For Someone To Blame? Congress Is Good Place To Start” and then more than twenty years later revised and titled “The 545 People Responsible for America’s Woes,” Reese blames America’s domestic woes on its 100 senators, 435 congressmen, 1 president, and 9 Supreme Court justices.

The self-described traditional conservative with libertarian leanings is currently a registered Democrat. Reese had been a registered Republican until George W. Bush invaded Iraq; then in 2004, he shifted his support to John Kerry.The flighty Reese started out as a Democrat but became a Republican shortly after John F. Kennedy took office. He returned to the Democrat Party once again when the Republicans nominated George H. W. Bush.Reese’s contention that the members of America’s three branches of government are to be blamed for her domestic woes is as well thought out as his party leanings.

America’s politicians and jurists are symptomatic of a much larger problem—an ignorant, indifferent electorate who doesn’t know an informed opinion from barroom bigotry and barbershop bull.The Congress and the President are elected by the people, and they serve at the people’s discretion. They are elected to office to represent constituents’ wants and needs from districts, states, and country in the nation’s government.

Some of America’s most dishonest, deceitful politicians have been reelected to office time and again by their constituents, which suggests that if the politicians are lacking in honor and moral integrity, so too are the people who keep electing them as their representatives.In a letter to the Massachusetts Militia, John Adams echoed a similar sentiment when he s…
