I found these Justin Smith thoughts on his Facebook Notes page. It is similar to a post linked to on the NCCR blog entitled, “Revolt” (SlantRight 2.0 version). Justin puts a voice to the fact of what he calls “Progressives” are breaking the U.S. Constitution with no rebuke from the voters or the Courts. He speculates that unless Americans wake up to the Leftist annulment of the Constitution our only recourse for a free America would be the same choice our Founding Fathers struggled with and culminated in the Declaration of Independence. If ballots do not overcome this Left Wing transformation of our America, will bullets be necessary? If we wake up late and move with bullets, will the true Americans have enough bullets to defeat Left Wing despotism?

There may come a time where violence is all that’s left to us. I don’t advocate it as a first choice, But what makes anyone think that an Administration that doesn’t even respect the existing Constitution will respect amendments coming out of an Article V States Convention or States Rights decisions under the 9th and 10th Amendments? The Constitution was designed for governance by moral men, and our leaders are of the poorest moral character in history and have strayed far from Our U.S. Constitution.
The Founders were afraid of “elective despotism” and gave us Article V as a counter, and failing that, the 2nd Amendment – True, it would be an uphill fight, since many would side with the Progressives, but the True American Patriot would honor his oath to the Constitution, former and present law enforcement and military, and side with Our American Heritage and the Constitution and Freedom, not the altar of the Super State – the Leviathan.
We’re not to that point yet, but things certainly are looking pretty bleak; Future Generations’ Destiny Hangs in the Balance and the next two election cycles are critical.
The following is an excerpt from an article I wrote that appeared on two blog sites and in two local papers here in Murfreesboro, TN (The Rutherford Reader and the Daily News Journal):
“20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
15 Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. (Isaiah 5: 20; 7: 15 NKJV)”
“After recent events, I have serious concerns over whether or not our traditional process will correct the course of our government’s trend towards authoritarian rule in time to save us. In past years, our differences were sorted out within the guidelines of the U.S. Constitution. What are we to do when one side decides to no longer be bound by the rules? The Progressives may have been born American citizens, but they are no longer American in their intentions for our nation. And, when the government, led by Obama and these Progressives, becomes lawless, it is not illegal or treason to finally take to the streets in protest/civil disobedience, at the very least, in the defense of the U.S. Constitution and America – to finally hold the criminals in the Obama Administration accountable through armed revolt should it persist in its treason, since many of America’s veterans, past and present, took an oath to defend the U.S. against “enemies both foreign and domestic.”
Someone once told me: “When is violence justified, when violence is used against us. Preemptive violence is not justified. Ballots, not bullets.”
My answer was that when they coerce citizens to do something against their will with the threat of violence, such as authorizing IRS agents to arrest one for not signing on to the ACA, an unConstitutional law (no matter how many hoops they jumped through to find otherwise) and many, many such extralegal/illegal laws amass, or rules and regulations with the weight of law as through the EPA, then too is revolt a duty.
That was the point of the last paragraph above the provided link. The ballot is foisting upon us the very tyranny we seek to escape, because of a coalition of the weak and minorities, who have found that they can vote themselves benefits and PRIVILEGE without consequence. Can we turn it around at the ballot? It’s hard to say – much probably depends on people realizing that it’s their own greed and actions destroying the nation. But the Founding Fathers recognized this phenomena and wrote about it extensively in the Federalist Papers – they called it ELECTIVE DESPOTISM. [Bold emphasis is Blog Editor’s]
I’m fighting tooth and nail within the system, such as it is. I’m even on board with the Article V movement for the moment, even though I do not see it doing much against the Progressives, with their current mindset of “KEEP POWER NO MATTER THE COST.”
How far are You and Your like-minded friends willing to go? Until the nation is completely crippled or destroyed by these anti-American MarxoFascists? I, for one, am staying vigilant and watching the approaching storm. I’m not about to allow them to destroy the future of My Children and GrandChildren Without a Damn Good Fight, whether they actually fire the first shot or not – NOT IF IT MEANS THAT AMERICA IS “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED” INTO THEIR VERSION OF A TOTALITARIAN “UTOPIA”.
The Founders fought the Revolution over a whole lot less grievances and with a whole lot less than we face at the moment. If we wait for the Progressives to fire on us, we will have waited too late, especially if the tipping scale has gone farther towards the Left in the electorate – not to say we have to fire any shots first. But we certainly should be mounting Maidan type protests.

I am a huge fan of blogger Danny Jeffrey. To my way of thinking Danny is emerging as a modern Jeremiad writer warning that if the trend of events continue the world order that Americans have grown complacently used to will change. Hmm … Who is that guy that promised his election will “CHANGE” America? The nefarious side of that change is occurring on an ever increasing clip.
VIDEO: Is a Civil War Coming?
The above video is at the top of a WCJ article examining Obama’s Marxist developmental years and some nefarious decisions forced on Americans extra-constitutionally. In Danny Jeffrey’s post “Iran, Obama and Nuclear War” Obama’s agenda for a New World Order is predicted. I find the essay fascinating largely because I only recently discovered Obama is preparing to negotiate with Iran pertaining to the economic sanctions issued due to the nuclear weapons agenda. The deal is America will ease up on sanctions if Iran slows down their nuclear program. Take note the sanctions easing has nothing to do with ending the creation of weapons grade uranium but to only slow down the production thereof. The unintended consequence (Danny might argue intended) of Obama’s foreign designs for Iran is Saudi Arabia arming itself with paid-for nuclear weapons from Pakistan and perhaps China.
Danny looks at himself as a “Cassandra.” I prefer Jeremiah – to each his own.
In Greek mythology, Cassandra was one of the princesses of Troy, daughter of Priam and Hecuba. According to the Myth, Cassandra was astonishingly beautiful and blessed with the gift of foreseeing the future. Her curse was that no one believed her, a fact that weighed heavily on the destruction of Troy during the Trojan War.
On that note the below excerpt shows that I prefer the image of Jeremiah:
The people of Judah had fallen from grace. They had rebelled against the principles upon which their nation had been founded. Judah had turned its back upon God and rejected any attempt by those sent to her to call her back. As promised, God withdrew His protection from her. He had warned that if His people became faithless that He would employ a pagan power to conquer them and lead them back into captivity. He had led them from Egyptian bondage 800 years before, and now, because of their infidelity, He would allow them to return to bondage; this time in Babylon.
They had refused to believe it could ever happen to them. They found their own false prophets to tell them that everything was fine. They ridiculed Jeremiah and others who warned of the devastation to come. They were proud and arrogant. The Lord spoke through Jeremiah and put it this way; “Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north…and I will send Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon…against this land and against its inhabitants…and this whole land shall be a desolation and a horror, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.” (JEREMIAH 25:9-11).
Indeed, history shows us that the words of Jeremiah turned into fact as they were fulfilled down to the last detail. The desolation began with the fall of Jerusalem to Babylon in 606 A.D. and the first deportation of the best of the land into slavery on foreign soil. In this number was Daniel who later would also be a prophet while a servant of Nebuchadnezzar. Further deportations followed and finally Jerusalem was destroyed, just as the prophets had warned. It was seventy years in exile before the now repentant people of God were permitted to go back home and begin to rebuild their wrecked cities. It was Darius, king of the Persians, who allowed the rebuilding to begin by a remnant of what was left of Judah and Israel in 536 B.C. (Far From Home: Jeremiah 29:1-14; By Jon W. Quinn; The Expository Files; 6/1994)
The Cassandra/Jeremiah thing has nothing to do with Danny Jeffrey’s essay, but I couldn’t to digress a bit.
Danny begins his essay about his posts having a complaint that they are all doom and gloom. Then he mentions a couple of historical figures that were Cassandras that if their warnings were heeded history may have played out better – William Tecumseh Sherman and Winston Churchill. Then Danny goes into the meat of his essay tantalizing the reader to look for the real reason why Obama desires only to delay Iran’s nuclear program rather than ending it. You have to read this to broaden your perception!
Vote AGAINST BHO’s Gay Agenda

Evidently the Dems feel the American public has been propagandized enough to accept homosexuality as a normal lifestyle that President BHO has left his 2008 campaign position of marriage being between a man and a woman to also include same-sex marriage as normal.
President Obama declared his personal support for same-sex marriage yesterday, but the White House chose not to push for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act today.
“Well, party platform issues are for the party to decide,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said when asked if Obama would call for the repeal of DOMA and endorsement of pro-gay marriage language in the party platform. “That process is underway, and I refer you to the DNC on the question about the platform.”
He added that “the President’s belief that DOMA ought to be repealed is well stated.”
Carney refused to disclose when Obama actually completed the process of “evolving” towards support for gay marriage. “I don’t have a specific date for you,” he said. (WH won’t push gay marriage into party platform; by Joel Gehrke; Washington Examiner; 5/10/12)
BUT still just a little scared by not willing to push for the elimination of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) which is a male/female marriage only Act. Even so just so Americans know that Obama is a pro-homosexual President which means he is anti-Christian on Biblical Morality, President Barack Hussein Obama in June proclaimed June to be Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgender (LGBT) month (AGAIN). Such a Presidential declaration shows BHO’s undying support for moral debauchery as part of his “Change” agenda to transform America into a Secular Humanist/Moral Relativity Socialist nation. Obama’s “Change” agenda is an elimination of the influence of Christianity and the U.S. Constitution based on Original Intent.
Here is a photo of Obama’s LGBT June Proclamation:
So in the coming months when Obama does the typical Leftist stunt of obfuscating America’s real problems of debt and unemployment and attempt to garner Left Wing support for reelection by focusing on pro-Leftist social issues, we Conservative NEED to be aware Obama represents a change that will destroy that which America good with his social agenda.
President Obama Proclaims June “Gay Pride Month”
By Dave Bohon
08 June 2012 10:41
Every year he has been in office President Obama has made it a point to cozy up to America’s tiny homosexual activist minority by officially recognizing June as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.” This year, of course, was no exception. Having just come out officially in favor of legalizing same-sex “marriage,” the President followed up on June 1 by issuing this year’s proclamation setting aside the entire month to commemorate the valuable contributions that gays, lesbians, transvestites, and an odds-and-ends assortment of sexually- and gender-confused individuals have made to American society.
“The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community has written a proud chapter” in American history, declared Obama with this year’s announcement. “From brave men and women who came out and spoke out, to union and faith leaders who rallied for equality, to activists and advocates who challenged unjust laws and marched on Washington, LGBT Americans and allies have achieved what once seemed inconceivable. This month, we reflect on their enduring legacy, celebrate the movement that has made progress possible, and recommit to securing the fullest blessings of freedom for all Americans.”
The President used the proclamation to remind the “gay” community of all he has done for its members, and how much homosexual voters owe him their support come November. “Since I took office, my administration has worked to broaden opportunity, advance equality, and level the playing field for LGBT people and communities,” Obama said. He pointed out that it was he who forced through the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act, bullied Congress into ending the common sense “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban on homosexuals serving in the military, and is currently doing everything he can to overturn the federal Defense of Marriage Act and legislate the redefinition of same-sex partnerships as “marriage.”
But “more remains to be done to ensure every single American is treated equally, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” continued the President. “Moving forward, my administration will continue its work to advance the rights of LGBT Americans,” he promised as he officially recognized June as “LGBT Pride” month and invited the American people to celebrate homosexuality as a normal — even praiseworthy — lifestyle.
On the heels of his proclamation, Obama appeared at a June 6 fundraiser attended by some 600 homosexual activists and “gay rights” supporters, including lesbian talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres and 1970s pop singing star and actress Cher, whose own daughter went through “gender reassignment” and changed her name from Chastity to “Chaz” in an effort to live as a man.
OneNewsNow.com reported that Obama “appeared to feed off the energy” of the crowd as he pledged to block any attempt at the reinstatement of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban. Signing the repeal of that ban, Obama said, was a high-water mark for him as President.
On June 5, Stars and Stripes, the government-funded armed forces newspaper, described the results of the lifting of that ban, joyfully reporting that homosexual military personnel openly celebrated their lifestyle at a special “LGBT Pride” reception thrown by the U.S. Ambassador to Japan in Tokyo. “I can’t believe I’ve been in the Air Force 23 years living in secret, hiding who I am, and now I’m invited to a reception by the emissary of the president of the United States,” Stars and Stripes quoted one attendee, Air Force Master Sgt. Marc Maschhoff.
The military newspaper reported that the event “was an exciting and emotional night for Maschhoff and a handful of other U.S. servicemembers. Maschhoff traveled with his boyfriend — who is also an airman — from Misawa Air Base in northern Japan to Tokyo for the event. Maschhoff said he was invited by the embassy because of his affiliation with the group Outserve, a Washington, D.C.-based association for gay servicemembers with chapters worldwide.”
Amazingly, President Obama has appealed to his supposed Christian faith to justify his support for normalizing the homosexual lifestyle through the force of his office. OneNewsNow reported that on the same day he made his “LGBT Pride” proclamation, and right after a group of black pastors asked to meet with him over their concerns about his endorsement of same-sex marriage as a civil right, “the president pointed to his wife and told ABC News, ‘When we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is not only Christ sacrificing Himself on our behalf, but it’s also the golden rule — treat others the way you’d want to be treated.’”
Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality pointed out that the President is behaving “as if rights based on perverse and immoral behavior are basic rights…. Of course, those aren’t basic rights. Basic rights are what we all share as Americans. Rights based on perversion, on changeable homosexual sin, are not basic rights.” He added that “for a man like Obama, who professes to be a faithful Christian, to be celebrating an agenda based on using the government to create rights based on changeable homosexual behavior — that’s a travesty.”
Bob Stith, a strategist on gender issues for the Southern Baptist Convention and head of its Task Force on Ministry to Homosexuals, told Baptist Press News that Obama is purposefully casting “all those who have a genuine, biblically based belief that homosexual acts are sin as haters.” But, he added, “it is not prejudicial to say that certain acts which have been viewed as sin for over 3,000 years by all three major religions are still sin.”
Stith added that the “words the president uses in his drive to normalize homosexuality clearly portray any who disagree with him as prejudiced bigots. Those who agree are loving and brave. The danger here is that those who dare to seek to protect the definition of marriage which has stood unchallenged for thousands of years are themselves the victims of prejudice and hate.”
Sadly, Stith said, Obama’s “LGBT Pride” proclamation “shows no interest in preventing this kind of bigotry. Rather it is another example that if something is repeated often enough it will be accepted as truth even if the evidence doesn’t support it.”
