Black Robed Tyranny Lives


There are God-Ordained Inalienable Rights that no man-made law authority over. Even so, the U.S. Constitution affirms Religious Liberty in the First Amendment. Now that the Supreme Court appears to join Dem-Marxists dedicated to ignoring God-Given and First Amendment memorialized Religious Liberty, I’m beginning to wonder why Christians would abide by Godless judicial impositions of law.

Black Robed Tyranny Lives

Religious Liberty: Some Things Are Self-Evident – A Violation of the First Freedom

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/1/2020 11:05 PM

 

Religious freedom and liberty is the First Freedom and an Inalienable Right granted all by God, enumerated in the Bill of Rights and sacrosanct, but somehow Chief Justice John Roberts, who is supposedly a conservative, barely bats an eye in casting the deciding vote for a ruling and a violation of this right, by which all others flow.

 

On July 24th 2020, [JOS]Roberts joined the four leftist Justices of the Supreme Court to deny the petition brought before the Court, to give Calvary Chapel in Dayton Valley, Nevada relief from Governor Steve Sisolak’s illegitimate and unconstitutional order, that limited attendance for the congregation to only 50 at a time — supposedly over Covid-19 concerns — despite allowing Nevada’s casinos to operate with hundreds of people flowing through its rooms and gaming arenas. And taken in total, this case actually represents one of the most blatant and overt attacks against Christianity and the Church that any American has witnessed in the course of American history, no matter the weak attempts to justify it by the weak, simpering backstabbing Chief Justice, who once again betrays his oath to the Constitution and America and dares to suggest he is upholding any rule of law.

 

The five justices handed out the majority 5-4 ruling in favor of Governor Sisolak and Nevada, and they chose not to write any opinion to explain their decision, probably due to the surreal nature any such explanation would hold in any attempt to defend the indefensible. However, it actually isn’t all that unusual, but their decision did draw three sharp dissents from the Court’s four conservative Justices.

 

Shortly after the ruling was revealed, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) exclaimed: “John Roberts has abandoned his oath.”

 

In his own criticism of Roberts, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) stated: “Justice Roberts once again got it wrong, shamefully closing church doors to their flocks.”

 

Even the Editorial Board at the Wall Street Journal was left scratching its head on this one, since a normally reliable SCOTUS on matters of religious freedom was now missing in action. Liberal reporters too were baffled and had trouble explaining how Nevada’s churches could mount so strong a challenge to Sisolak’s illegitimate order and still lose.

 

Roberts acted in the same anti-First Amendment manner on May 29th 2020, when he also sided with the four Communist Horsemen of the Supreme Court to deny South Bay Pentecostal Church relief from Gov. Gavin Newsom’s illegal order, that held it to a different and more onerous standard than California’s similar secular businesses. His decision there and most recently with Cavalry Chapel were both wrong-headed and in absolute contravention of any moral interpretation of the Constitution and the law.

 

Some things are self-evident, as noted often by America’s Founders, and nothing should be more self-evident than one’s right to worship in a house of worship when and where one chooses, without the heavy hand of government interfering. This is especially important to both Christians and Jews as we find in Hebrews 10: 22-27 of the King James Bible, that reads:

 

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for He is faithful that promised; And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works; Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much more, as ye see the day approaching. For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgement and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.”

 

Inalienable rights cannot be superseded or abrogated by any executive order, state legislation or federal order, since they pre-exist government and the Constitution, and any agreement to abide temporarily by any such order is only moral in a fair application across the board. In other words, what’s good for factories in California and casinos in Nevada is good for the Church. But that is not what we have witnessed.

 

Justice Brett Kavanaugh saw the Calvary Chapel case as straightforward, in his dissent, writing:

 

Nevada’s 50-person attendance cap on religious worship service puts praying at churches, synagogues, temples and mosques on worse footing than eating at restaurants, drinking at bars, gambling at casinos or biking at gyms. In other words, Nevada is discriminating against religion.

 

Rightfully so, lawyers for Calvary Chapel contended that Governor Sisolak’s order discriminated against churches and violated the First Amendment, writing in their brief: “This is a straightforward case. If the governor deems it acceptable for secular assemblies to occur at 50 percent capacity at casinos, restaurants, bars, gyms and fitness facilities, indoor and outdoor parks, bowling alleys, water parks, pools, arcades and more, he must apply the same 50 percent capacity rule to constitutionally protected worship services.”

 

[JOS]In his dissent, Justice Samuel Alito, one of the finest minds still on the Court, wrote:

 

That Nevada would discriminate in favor of the powerful gaming industry and its employees may not come as a surprise, but this Court’s willingness to allow such discrimination is disappointing. We have a duty to defend the Constitution and even a public health emergency does not absolve us of that responsibility. It says nothing about the freedom to play craps or blackjack, to feed tokens into a slot machine or to engage in any other game of chance.”

 

The executive order is so unbelievably biased against churches, that Governor Steve Sisolak reveals himself to be one of the most obscene and disgraceful faces of “the Government” and Big Brother. His order goes beyond the pale in its blatant disregard for the Church’s rights and its honest approach to worshiping in a responsible fashion. And so too does Chief Justice John Robert’s affirmation of Sisolak’s evil.

 

All the Church had asked was for the Governor to allow 90 parishioners rather than 50, in a church that holds 200. So, America bears witness to a mentally maladjusted, intellectual midget who is willing to allow thousands of people to pursue the hopes of fleeting riches through the inequities of gambling, while cracking the government whip on the Church for seeking to bring more of their brethren into their building in pursuit of a closer relationship to God.

 

In one sentence, Justice Alito nails the crux of the matter:

 

The idea that allowing Calvary Chapel to admit 90 worshipers present a greater public health risk than allowing casinos to operate at 50 percent capacity is hard to swallow, and the State’s efforts to justify the discrimination are feeble.”

 

During the course of the case, it was discovered that the Governor chose to disregard previous violations of his order by large masses of protesters. Not only did Gov. Sisolak not enforce his own directive, he actually supported and participated in at least one such protest, whereupon he shared a video of the protesters standing shoulder to shoulder. However, upon hearing that some churches might disregard the order, the State’s response from the attorney general came in part with a declarative statement that, “You can’t spit … in the face of law and not expect law to respond.”

 

What hypocrites. What anti-American hypocritical tyrants.

 

Of course all peaceful protests are protected too, by the First Amendment, but they are not any more important than Calvary Church’s Freedom of religion, and the State cannot favor one over another, since such a bias is anathema to the First Amendment, regardless of any imprimatur the Governor has given one in preference over the other. And it is still unconstitutional. [Blog Editor: Peaceful Protest is indeed a First Amendment Right BUT – rioting, looting, vandalism and other acts of violence are not First Amendment protected AND is NOT peaceful. Justin knows that, I just felt the need to reiterate it:

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.]

 

And Justice Neil Gorsuch concurred with Alito, writing:

 

In Nevada, it seems, it is better to be in entertainment than religion. … Maybe that is nothing new. But the First Amendment prohibits such obvious discrimination against the exercise of religion. The world we inhabit today, with the pandemic upon us, poses unusual challenges. But there is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesars Palace over Calvary Chapel.”

 

Is it any wonder that America finds Herself in such dire straits, with Satan and the Enemy standing at Her gates? —  Disguised in many deceptive garbs and speaking many soothing, pleasing and beguiling manners.

 

Of some interest, Chief Justice Robert’s did somewhat explain his reasoning in his South Bay ruling, that may shed some light to his decision on Calvary Chapel. Unlike his associate Republican Justices, he tends to defer to democratically accountable officials during a public health crisis, and suggests the Court on the whole should also. However, one must note, from his rulings records, Roberts’s deference to “the politically accountable officials does not always move in favor of public health, or even democracy, as understood through the prism of republican governance, for that matter.

 

Roberts’s justification is lame as anything we will read this decade, and just as he had to jump through linguistic hoops to discover that Obamacare was a “tax” rather than an unconstitutional penalty, he has had to delve into a whole new Alice In Wonderland delusional alternative universe to negate and disregard the fundamental, inherent truth of the inalienable quality of our religious liberty, the First Freedom. His actions are inexcusable and unconscionable beyond anything any true American should ever hope to never see again.

 

The majority’s decision was worse than if they had simply set the case aside, since their ruling is tantamount to endorsing discrimination against the Church, pure and simple. In an unconscionable manner, this Court is failing in its constitutional responsibilities, and without rhyme or reason, their rulings have taken on an imperial tone, that is both dangerous and antithetical to the rule of law. And this Supreme Court is as close to Black Robed tyrants as America has ever seen, to date.

 

Chief Justice John Roberts has aligned himself with the adversaries of the very virtues, principles and righteous endeavors that stand between man’s freedom and tyranny, and still some attempt to hold him as a fine example of judiciary prudence. They excuse him in what they view as his attempt to prevent the American public from seeing the Court as a politicized body comprised of four Democrats and five Republicans, even though essentially that’s precisely what it is. And regardless of his intent, whether he is a purposeful closet liberal intent on advancing certain Marxist agendas, i.e. Obamacare, abortion and the deviant LGBTQ agenda, and seeks to be loved by Leftist America or he simply seeks to align the Court with the prevailing public opinion of the day, Chief Justice John Roberts is still ruling in ways, especially of late, that will have long reaching and long-lasting effects on America and undermine the rule of law, having the exact opposite effect he seeks, as all Americans who value truth and reality grow to see him as the betrayer of both.

 

And whenever any elected official holds before the people a “law” that is a malformed, cheap, imitation of anything remotely adhering to our founding principles, and it violates our Inalienable Rights in so egregious a manner as this, as un-Christian as it may seem to many, my own first initial response is to, in fact, spit square in the face of said “law” that is no law at all and fill the Church ’til its doors and windows pulsate with the Spirit of the Lord.

The Birth of COVID-1984


Are you an American? Do you – AN AMERICAN – want a life of fear and submission to government edicts? If you answered yes (wittingly or unwittingly), then a Globalist government is awaiting your citizenship … AND that ain’t American citizenship.

 

If you answered no (as in HELL NO), It is time to stand against the tyranny of an unconstitutional rule of law. There is a COVID-1984 fear agenda that needs to be withstood by some good old fashioned American rebellion.  READ Justin Smith to know what I mean.

The Birth of COVID-1984

We Have A Duty to Stand Up to Tyranny!

Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”  ~ George Addair

 

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”  ~ Marie Skiodowska-Curie (1867-1934)

 

The dilemma of simply trying to pursue one’s unalienable God Given Rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness is growing ever more difficult in America, as our governments at all level have become much less interested in protecting our rights, their sworn duty, and more interested in doing anything and everything to suppress our Bill of Rights and grow their own power, through both legal and illegal measures and actions. The people who run these local and state governments, along with the federal government, at this juncture, seem to be not accountable for their actions, in such a way, that a potentially greater threat than this virus is rising in the form of newly emerging police state, filled with officers, who do not have a proper understanding of their constitutional duty and have fallen to employing the State’s illegal orders with an ease unparalleled in recent history, and run by medical doctors and technocrats anxious to use fear as a tool to encourage the birth of their new baby, COVID-1984. [Blog Editor: Interesting thoughts utilizing a COVID-1984 political scenario to transform not only the U.S. but the world:

 

 

 

 

 

 

My father, his father and their fathers before them, all were raised in a world among people of sound mind and reason, more than capable by way of cogent thought processes and analytical skills. My ancestors understood that life itself carries risk and every day one went out in public a chance existed that something bad might come their way, including some new or old disease. Never in U.S. history have Americans asserted they somehow have a right to demand that all other Americans make the public domain absolutely risk free, whatever the cost to themselves. And, if we now accept that the petty tyrants in our governments and the segment of society in agreement with them can do this, what else can they demand of us?

 

Those people telling us to stay home are cowards, and they want us to be cowards. Our so-called “leaders” [I want to puke every time I write the word], such as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, are telling us to live in fear. Cuomo said, “I need you to stay home because the virus may kill me.”

 

On Wednesday, April 15th 2020, ##two women in Laredo, Texas were arrested by undercover police, on an anonymous tip, for violating Laredo’s COVID-19 shutdown order. They were operating a “prohibited” cosmetology business from their home, and, as luck would have it, the Laredo shutdown mandates that “non-essential” services, including cosmetology services, must close; their charges carry a maximum 180 days in jail and a $1000 fine.

 

That’s the other side of this coin. In unbelievable unwarranted, egregious acts of betrayal, unprecedented in American history, far too many have decided to be collaborators and informers in the tyrant’s cause to squash liberty, in a fashion far too similar to East Germany. New York City Mayor DeBlasio has a “snitch line” in place and he has asked for people to send photos to law enforcement of anyone violating quarantine “laws”. Likewise, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti enthusiastically encouraged “snitching”. And all of America’s good and decent citizens should be sickened to their very core to see such operations in the open, in our country — America — with Her long tradition of upholding and defending freedom and liberty.

 

One mother, Sarah Walton Brady, was recently arrested in Meridian, Idaho, for trespassing on a closed playground with her children. It’s highly questionable whether the playground should have been closed over this virus in the first place, but however one sees it, there wasn’t any real good reason to arrest her. Although she has since apologized for trespassing, probably coerced through threats of heavy fines and jail, she initially stated: “I didn’t wake up today thinking, I’m taking my kids to the park to get arrested, but when tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty! We have a duty to stand up to tyranny, or we’re gonna lose our republic.”

 

America has also witnessed a lone California surfer in the ocean by himself arrested. Another man was arrested for playing cards with three friends inside a closed bar, and he now faces 90 days in jail and a $1000 fine. These are just two of hundreds of similar cases.

 

What are some other risky practices Americans should no longer tolerate in society? Going out in public if their allergies trigger the sniffles?

 

More than this, some idiots in the federal government seem to believe, erroneously I might add, that the use of our outstanding military to repel an invasion of illegal immigrants is a violation of the Posse Comitatus, which only forbids the use of the military to enforce domestic laws. And yet on March 31st 2020, Secretary of Defense ##Mark Esper, suggested that state governors can use the National Guard  to enforce house arrest orders.

 

On April 28th 2020, New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio tweeted [Red State]: “My message to the Jewish community, and to all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.”

 

Is it really?!!?

 

More than eighty to ninety percent of the U.S. population has already been “sheltering-in-place” for more than a month. At this point, it is a near certainty that aside from known cases, everybody has either had it and didn’t know it, or they haven’t been infected yet. But in any case, the virus in America, for all practical considerations is now largely of little concern to healthy people not wanting to face starvation in the near future and who are anxious to start back to work.

 

On April 20th, ##Dr. Dan Erickson, of Bakersfield, California started speaking out quite loudly against the current COVID models as being deeply flawed, and as noted on April 26th in the American Institute for Economic Research, he stated: “If you’re going to dance on someone’s constitutional rights you better have a good reason, you better have a really good reason, not just a theory. The data is showing us it’s time to lift (the stay at home orders) so if we don’t lift, what is the reason?”

 

Erickson added, “Typically you quarantine the sick. When someone has the measles you quarantine them. We’ve never seen where we quarantine the healthy.”

 

In a similar rejection of the One-Worlder’s COVID models, Professor Johan Giesecke, former State Epidemiologist and currently an advisor to the Swedish government, stated that most of the policies imposed by other governments, including the United States, are not evidence based.

 

Although U.S COVID deaths are now reportedly over 60,000, on April 25th, the count was right at 53,000. Of that number, 42,400 were discovered to have resulted from age-related deaths, like cancer, heart disease and diabetes, and only 10,600 were actually verified by laboratory tests, with a lot of false positives. The COVID event has been a smoke and mirror trick of such size to make the Wizard of Oz look like a piker. [Bold text Blog Editor’s]

 

Here’s what happened when people didn’t social distance: Out of the entire 4600 member crew tested aboard the USS Roosevelt, only 710 tested positive, only 52 needed treatment and only one died [Blog Editor: one death reported as of 4/24/20 on Popular Mechanics]. Forty-two recovered fully, and nine are in the process of recovering. So, thousands of sailors packed tightly together all day long and everyday only exhibited 1.13% of the crew needing any treatment whatsoever, and only one out of 4600 died. [Blog Editor: Updated statistics (without report of sailor’s death) 4/30/20 at Times of San Diego]

 

Very few of the hospitals in America are overwhelmed with COVID cases, with the exception of New York City. Many hospitals are actually shutting down or handing staff their lay-off slips, because COVID has delayed all elective procedures, for a litany of reasons. However, in the aspiring Communist state of California, Governor Newsom has assembled a task force to examine the best way to end the shutdown, even though he didn’t need such an entity to declare it.

 

Why? And the real shame is that he will never be made to pay for the human and economic costs of these unprecedented moves, nor will the others who used the most draconian measures to force compliance.

 

The impeccable and bright Ann Coulter nails it in her commentary  today (April 29th), ##stating: “The shutdown is airport security for the whole country. Nineteen Muslim immigrants flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and suddenly little old ladies from Oklahoma had to be goosed at airports. We have to be safe!”

 

Safety comes at a high price. Look at the price already: Joblessness, poverty, crushed dreams, the evaporation of all our accumulated achievements and the suppression of our liberty. Safety comes at the price of life having meaning; safety comes at the cost of adventure and a life well lived, and staying safe and “sheltering at home” would not have stopped Hitler during the 1940s.

 

So many Americans are so afraid of dying, that they have stopped living, and in the process they are hurting others and themselves. In a country so interdependent state by state, the consequences of their fear is seen in lost jobs, homes and cities and towns already headed towards bankruptcy driven further into the ground. Their failure to understand the full ramifications of their unfailing cooperation and collaboration with the lockdown is causing the collapse of our society. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

 

Those globalists and technocrats currently advocating hard and intensely for the World Health Organization to be followed without question, such as Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates and many other One-Worlders, have succeeded in pushing the United States Federal government to accept the model that sees every other person as a threat and a possible carrier of a deadly germ that cannot be controlled, and there couldn’t be a better way for the Communists and Socialists of America to justify imposing sweeping restrictions on everyone’s activities. All of a sudden, ordinary everyday life is viewed as dangerous, and the government says that not a single one among us can defend ourselves from this “scary” virus. We supposedly need the government to protect us, and this has been a test run to shake lose any flaws in their plans to achieve their ultimate goal of total government control and the end of freedom and liberty in America.

 

[Blog Editor: Justin ain’t jokin’ using the word “One-Worlder”. Check this out:

 

 

 

 

AND if you think the One World Government/New World Order links are the works of Right-Wing conspiracy nutjobs, check out these two links from more Left oriented website and a report on a former UK Prime Minister promoting Globalist ideals:

 

 

 

Liberty is now at risk in America more than it has ever been at any juncture in history, to the point we have even seen churches closed by COVID Communism, a feat never even accomplished in the old Soviet Union, and the time calls for us all to be as courageous as possible and dissent as loudly as possible against these shutdowns. Demand a full and rapid reopening in opposition to the current limited plans to reopen slowly, especially in light of the damage to our food supply chain that is currently emerging, even as President Trump has ordered meat packing plants to reopen.

 

The anti-American, anti-Founding mobsters in our federal and state governments and the Federal Reserve Bank have savaged the economy, over 26 million Americans have lost their jobs, an untold number of small business will close forever, trillions of dollars of property have been stolen, and they have the largest segment of the American people cowering at home, BAaaaing at the moon, stripped of the most basic freedoms to do just about anything. They even seek to track us through special devices and chips through national health databases and immunization certificates, and our governments have seized the moment to vastly expand their powers, doing whatever they want, in a manner unseen since September 11th 2001, because some people are terrified. And these seized powers will never be relinquished without a fight.

 

If the current spate of protests and dissent across the nation fail to bring the entire government structure to its senses, forcing them to reopen immediately, this month of shutdowns will turn into two, maybe three, and then it will most certainly be pushed on to the suggested 18 month mark, for a good reason that will be soon be discovered, more likely fabricated, such as the possibility of a resurgence and needing to await the much touted Gates Vaccine. So, open your businesses today, immediately, orders lifted or not. Go back to work, those who can, orders lifted or not. Free your minds and your bodies and scream your dissent to the Heavens against any continuance of this shutdown, that guarantees many more deaths through poverty and starvation, loudly enough to be heard in D.C. and all across America, and don’t wait for anyone else to free you, especially anyone from the government: To do so only legitimizes their acts of tyranny, that are not legitimate under our Bill of Rights — by our Constitution — any ethical principle, any moral compact. [Bold text is the Blog Editor COMPLETELY agreeing with Justin]

A God-Given Right That Preexists Government


Justin Smith examines the Right to self-protection is God-given and hence gun ownership for protection cannot be overridden by any law manufactured by human hands.

 

The opinion is sure to chap the hides of the Left seeking to disengage all things of the Biblical God Almighty from the Rule of Law and American cultural thinking. I for one refuse to believe my existence upon physical death dissolves into an amalgamation atoms and molecules into the material world. I’ll trust in God’s Word in Salvation and eventual resurrected life into God’s Kingdom in Christ Jesus the Savior.

 

As to the usefulness of a bump stock for protection of Life, Liberty and Property: the I see the American Left manufacture law by Judicial fiat rather the consent of the governed or redesign existing law to the detriment of the governed, the more I sense Americans will embark on a new Jeffersonian Declaration of Independence from a tyrannical Left:

 

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

A God-Given Right That Preexists Government

If the American people don’t like firearms and the Second Amendment, for any reason, it isn’t the President’s place to limit or regulate any firearm or accessory by executive order, as President Trump recently did with bump stocks that accelerate a rifle’s rate of fire. It is up to the people to repeal the Second Amendment, if they really desire the removal of a negative right that limits what the federal government can do against them. That is the only legitimate recourse. [Blog Editor: Lawsuit in the works]

Even then, any action against the Second Amendment wouldn’t negate or abolish our God-given right to self-defense and to bear any weapon for that lawful purpose, under Natural Law and as acknowledged by the Supreme Court in 2008. A majority of sovereign individuals cannot legitimately take away or abrogate the God-given rights of any one sovereign individual.

 

[Blog Editor: I highly support the concept of the “sovereign individual” yet only in the context Judeo-Christian faith. I reject most of the ideology of the Sovereign Citizen Movement as inimical to representative government that lead to terrorism inflicting chaos on the community of citizens who wittingly or unwittingly themselves to the social contract of representative government. AND although I reject the idiotic extremist ideology of Sovereign Citizens; if or when the government bypasses the interest of the Represented (i.e. We The People) violating Rights created by the Creator, then sovereign individuals can resist the government along terms articulated by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence. Those terms do not vacate government taxation unless the taxation is levied without the consent of the governed. AND those terms insure the Rights of individuals to band together to protect God-Given Life, Godly-Liberty and legitimately acquired Property. And for clarity’s sake – that is my interpretive opinion. Full disclosure my opinion is not absolute though I feel valid:

 

 

 

 

The federal government absolutely does not have the right and authority to regulate our God-given Right to possess and carry any weapon for the Lawful purpose of Self-Defense. And neither do the states.

In Heller v District of Columbia in 2008, the Supreme Court acknowledged that our right to keep and bear arms was a God-given right that preexists government and the Constitution and went further, stating individuals could own weapons of the same sophistication and technological advancement as the military.

States are able to so readily infringe on our right, by demanding permits and fees and such, and have made their illegitimate and illegal acts de facto law, because the people have allowed it; but the states’ might-still-does-not-make-right and neither does ANY majority vote that seeks to vote away a God-given right as seen in Natural Law and God’s Creation. These laws have stood simply because people have been too afraid of their government to push back against them, as individuals, and/or as an entire people, they have lacked the political will up until the most recent years. [Blog Editor: Interesting PDF entitled. “Influence of the Natural Law Theology of the Declaration of Independence on the Establishment of Personhood in the United States Constitution,” 2008]

I say carry when and if one wishes, anytime. If everyone did this, the law couldn’t arrest the nation. And those who do get arrested should question the authority of the State to do so, on the Constitutional grounds of the Second Amendment. Eventually the Supreme Court will be forced to recognize, so long as a person isn’t committing any crime with his firearm, he has the right to have it on him, anytime, regardless of whether he or she is black, white, red, yellow, brown or pink.

ANY “Law” restricting one’s right to carry a firearm is No Law at All and Should Be IGNORED And REPEALED.

I fault any president who doesn’t understand our founding and its principles thoroughly enough to articulate the same position I just did. Instead, we have had a long train of presidents who, despite their on-the-record campaign statements, have seemed all too willing to go along with the illiberal tyrannically bent Democrats and their activist judge lackeys in their machinations to disarm Americans at every opportunity. And that’s just the plain facts of the matter … no hyperbole here.
