The Tyranny of Mask Mandates


I have been calling for civil disobedience to tyrannical despotic rules not instituted by legislation passed by those elected to congressional bodies or are contrary to the law in the U.S. Constitution (which can only be changed by a tedious process) for quite a while. Justin Smith examines unconstitutional MASK MANDATES calling for courage to resist even if the despots exact lawless consequences.

The Tyranny of Mask Mandates

Mask Mandates: Impermissible and Insufferable – Eventually Unanswered Tyranny Touches Us All

Posted by Justin O. Smith

” … the power of law to force a human being to wear a mask at the federal or state level simply does not exist in the United States.”  ~ Judge Andrew Napolitano

Americans are facing one bit of tyranny heaped upon others at a breathtaking rate, that we never would have expected to see in our country at this advanced stage of our history, and to a large degree the current “Covid Crisis” is the mechanism of its advancement. The push for the continued enforcement of illegal, unconstitutional mask mandates by small-minded petty bureaucrats and government workers everywhere is a large part of this anti-freedom and anti-liberty agenda advocated by the worst elements of local, state and federal governments, raising the blood-pressure and the ire of many Americans from all walks of life, who recognize this as the tyrants demands for our submission, in the face of their erroneous science and lies.

Not one single individual, not the first executive of any branch of government, not any governor and not the President of the United States and certainly not any mayor of any city or county, has any legal or legitimate authority to mandate that the entire healthy population don masks, under the pretense that these masks stop the spread of any disease, when the CDC’s own information and numerous recent studies state the contrary. They only have the authority to enhance and facilitate the implementation of existing legislation passed by a sitting legislative body, and there isn’t one single law on the books that gives them the power they have taken for themselves under this Covid imbroglio; and, never in our entire history, not even during the deadly Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918, have we ever penalized the entire population. 

On April 16th, between one and two o’clock p.m., my first-born daughter had a misadventure at the Department of Motor Vehicles, in Sumner County, Tennessee, simply because she sought to get her tags without first donning a mask, even though numerous other people were already sitting in the waiting area without masks. [JOS] The lady at the counter told her that she couldn’t even talk to her without a mask, to which my daughter quickly countered by noting that JOS] another woman was receiving her tags without a mask and a police officer had just been nearby without a mask. Needless to say, my daughter was furious, and rightly so.

How does one get past this sort of coercion, when a government office withholds service of something like one’s tags, unless one complies with an illegal, unconstitutional, illegitimate mandate? 

Make them get their supervisor and ask for a confirmation in writing that they are being refused service even though no legislation requires them to wear a mask. Accept the ticket one will surely later receive, for driving without tags, and then go to court to fight it under the grounds that government malfeasance and incompetence is to blame; and, if necessary, refuse to pay any ticket or tickets received, and then stand with the other mistreated citizens of one’s community under a lawyer’s guidance to sue the county for its infringement on their constitutional rights.

This process may lead to a list of other problems, such as suspended licenses and arrests and jail, which are too much for many to stand and bear, especially when they have children in school and families depending on them to get back and forth to work. And this is what the tyrants know and count on, as they have no compunction over making one or all dissenters into criminals for the simple act of standing up for what is right.

As one can readily see, a person might avoid any grief from the mask mandates for a long time, just as I have avoided any problems or confrontations, until something like this arises. Eventually, tyranny allowed to go unanswered touches us all.

Some suggest that states do have the legal right to pass such legislation, and perhaps they do. However, under the incorporated “due process clause” of the Fourteenth Amendment, the states cannot “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law“. States might technically have such a right, but in that mask-mandates deprive us of our liberty and individual sovereignty, they are virtually unenforceable in many respects, and so, any dissent and legal challenge against any mask mandate is on firm legal ground. 

And, I would also retort that if I am healthy and representing no risk to others, any such “law” or mandate represents an illegitimate government intrusion and a massive government overreach; and if anyone thinks others “may be sick” and just not symptomatic, then you can wear a damn mask, but you cannot force me and all America to don one due to your own irrational fear of a virus that has a damn near 99 percent survival rate.

Don’t people recognize, if states actually believed this to be the existential threat that the Leftists of America are screaming it is, they would have already passed legislation to move in this direction? Instead, here in Tennessee, legislators have proposed bills to ensure that businesses and government offices cannot discriminate and refuse service to anyone not wearing a mask or who has rejected the Covid vaccine (see SB320/SB187/HB13/HB0794), and several other states are doing much the same.

These mask mandates in too many instances serve only as a burden on the public peace, health and the safety of all Americans, for a litany of sound medical reasons that I have hashed and rehashed in a dozen other articles. And, once one sees the theatrics of Dr. Anthony Fauci and his admitted lies to mislead the American people, as he flip-flops all over the place on the necessity of wearing a mask — one day saying they are a must, the next saying abandon them — it is not clear what, if any, scientific and clinical basis for wearing facemasks as a protective strategy might be, especially knowing for a fact that facemasks restrict breathing, cause hypoxemia and hypercapnia and increase the risk for respiratory complications, self-contamination and the exacerbation of chronic conditions. 

And then there are the cowards who would tell us, “It’s just a facemask”. Only a coward so readily takes refuge in such a poor excuse to give up even the slightest portion of one’s individual Liberty, as their words illuminate the fact that they were simply searching for the right reason to acquiesce to the unwise, such as Fauci and those adhering to Fauci’s willful ignorance. The words of cowards hold no value to me and it shouldn’t have any for anybody else, either, since they take comfort in cowering before the tyrants and huddled alongside their own ilk.

Sadly, once the power was discovered that came with these mask mandates and lockdowns and such, government bureaucrats and their lower-level agency workers have steadily and constantly facilitated the coercion and bribery of businesses to act on their orders, in essence to restrict the opportunity for free people to engage in commerce based upon wearing masks and medical procedures they may or may not have received. The mask mandates are simply the beginning, and now that we see government offices using them as an arbitrary tyrannical means of control, it’s readily apparent that many in our society want to use them to exert total control over how Americans will be allowed to simply live and interact in public spaces. 

According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, although public safety and health falls under the Tenth Amendment and to the general oversight of the states, even they have limits on their authority in this regard. Speaking on Fox News one day, Napolitano stated that the states could not legitimately mandate people must wear masks, stating

If a person is known to be contagious, the state could require that person to be quarantined or wear a mask, but anything short of that, the state cannot interfere with that person’s freedom of movement or freedom to wear or not to wear a mask, so the government’s authority is really limited here no matter how aggressive the pandemic may become.”

However, Napolitano did clarify that states could require people to wear masks inside property they own, which cannot be right, in that the state supposedly represents all the people, even those who refuse to comply with mask mandates. Therefore, it must be left to each person as a free individual to decide for themselves whether or not they wish to wear a mask or not. 

[Blog Editor: More Napolitano clarification:

“So let me modify slightly what I just said,” he said. “The federal government could compel wearing masks on federal property. A military facility, the post office, government buildings, and the state government could compel wearing masks on state property. The DMV, state colleges, things like that. But on property that the government doesn’t own, the feds have no authority to compel wearing a mask, and the states can only compel it when people are sick.”]  

One father, a soccer coach in Kentucky, made his stand against Kentucky’s mask mandate, refusing to make his daughter wear one, and lost a good job, because he refused to comply, or sit down and remain silent in the face of this tyranny. And due to the courage he exhibited, he is also the father of the only soccer player in his city who plays without a mask; this is the sort of courage all of America’s parents, and everybody else too, needs to find, if they expect to hold onto any semblance of freedom and liberty in days ahead. 

[Blog Editor: I could not locate Justin’s reference to a Kentucky soccer coach resisting mask mandates. I do not doubt Justin because there plenty of brave coaches resisting Mask despotism and experiencing bureaucratic consequences. One such person is New Hampshire track coach Bradley Keyes:

Any American failing to act decisively at this important juncture in our history, to ensure Liberty and Freedom for future generations, is sorely lacking in the principles and virtues that America was founded upon. It is unconscionable to let this government overreach to continue at any level of government, and what we do now as a people and a society will determine the fate of freedom and humanity in our country for the rest of the century.

If one chooses the coward’s path, at least be honest with those depending on you to let them know you will not be there for them. At least that way, they will not be surprised or unprepared, when looking for ways to defend themselves and people who will stand alongside them, or in front of them in the coming battles. 

As H.L. Menken noted in 1922:

All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: It’s one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him … One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them.”

The forced mask mandate upon Americans anywhere — the imposition of these Chinese face burkas — is impermissible and insufferable for anyone with any backbone, integrity and virtue, since they go against the very principles that America was founded upon and the idea of limited government, and they must not be allowed to serve the tyrannical ends for which they are now employed. If the petty tyrants among us can mandate that we all wear a mask for through their own devious and arbitrary “logic” and mechanisms outside constitutional law, then they can mandate anything at all in our lives, even up to and including that we must lick their boots every Friday. 

Americans must not let these petty tyrants succeed in facilitating government rule-making for the sake of government rule-making, just to show that they command and we are to obey. Resist and refuse to comply at every turn in the road and fight this regime and any other government entity like all manner of hell is descending upon you and yours, like your life depends on it, in order to prevent the deep entrenchment of a government that demands our total obedience, with the ability to enforce it. Our liberty, our lives and our futures depend on what we all do from this day forward. 

Be brave. Be courageous. Spit in the face of these unconstitutional and illegitimate power grabs and fight like hell to ensure that America’s future generations will be living free for many centuries.

PATRIOTS! Begin to Save America Locally


John R. Houk

© March 8, 2021

 

Today I am cross posting “Trevor Loudon’s Plan to Save American from Socialism” and The Gateway Pundit’s continuing examination of Election Crimes STILL being committed in Arizona. The Loudon plan is dated March 4 and the TGP examination is dated March 7.

 

I am hoping many have already read the Loudon plan yet it is such an important READ you should examine it as a refresher and if you haven’t read it, DEAR GOD if you don’t desire to live in the Marxist States of America – READ IT! Loudon points out the Q-propaganda fallacy of the military being in control and how you can actually resist Dem-Marxism to preserve America.

 

I am including the TGP piece on Election Crimes in Arizona because my sense it highlights the reasoning from Loudon American Patriots cannot depend on mythical behind-the-scenes power sources to save the American Republic. Political preservation begins with YOU on a local basis becoming active peacefully (at least at first) to RESIST unconstitutional political crimes instituting Marxism (apparently influenced by the Chinese Communist Party) to the USA into a Globalist/Marxist puppet state ditching the Liberty of WE THE PEOPLE.

 

In full disclosure I have been one that placed hope in Q-like propaganda in the past. BUT YOU HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND nary a Q-prediction of the last four years has occurred. Which by the way includes a March 4th resurrection of the American Republic. Stop waiting for waiting for some unseen physical power to do something YOU can do.

 

THE ONLY UNSEEN POWER TO WAIT ON IS THE POWER OF GOD to activate through His human instruments in line with His Word and the direction of His Holy Spirit.

 

Being a doer and not hearer only in Biblical context courtesy of the AMPLIFIED BIBLE, CLASSIC EDITION (AMPC) in the Epistle of James:

 

21 So get rid of all uncleanness and the rampant outgrowth of wickedness, and in a humble (gentle, modest) spirit receive and welcome the Word which implanted and rooted [in your hearts] contains the power to save your souls.

 

22 But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. [Blog Editor: The central text of passage]

 

23 For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror;

 

24 For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like.

 

25 But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he shall be blessed in his doing (his life of obedience). – James 1: 21-25 AMPC

 

It is my opinion, to be an effective doer one needs to sense Holy Spirit guidance which always aligns with God’s Word:

 

John 16

 

13 But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].

 

14 He will honor and glorify Me, because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.

 

15 Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He [the Spirit] will take the things that are Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.

 

Romans 8

 

[That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot.

 

10 But if Christ lives in you, [then although] your [natural] body is dead by reason of sin and guilt, the spirit is alive because of [the] righteousness [that He imputes to you].

 

14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

 

2 Corinthians 3

 

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).

 

18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit. — John 16: 13-15; Romans 8: 7, 10, 14; 2 Corinthians 3: 17-18 AMPC

 

For those of you who I believe and still place your hope in Q-like propaganda, I will not criticize. I’ve been there. In the back of mind, I would love to see the Q-stuff happen. BUT WHEN NOTHING HAPPENNED, I decided to place my hope and faith in the power of God which even after evil has run rough shod, God will always prevail in one manner or another. Even the American Judicial System is unreliable to uphold the Constitution.

 

SO, do something now on your local sphere of influence. If Q-stuff happens, good God was in it. If you desire more certainty than ever-waiting Q-like predictions, YOU DO SOMETHING NOW! Loudon has some insights to get you started.

Trevor Loudon’s Plan to Save American from Socialism

 

Trevor Loudon – Save America Plan

 

By Trevor Loudon

March 5, 2021

We The People Convention

ORIGINALLY The Epoch Times

March 4, 2021 [Just discovered TET has a 3/7/21 updated version available to premium subscribers (of which I am one). I’m leaving the WTPC credit since I first heard from them of the Loudon plan, I am cross posting the TET updated version]

 

A New Zealander’s 9 ‘Starter Steps’ to Save America From Socialism

 

Though I’m a New Zealander, I know America and its people well. I’ve travelled to every state in the Lower 48 and have addressed more than 500 audiences across this amazing nation. My message has always been the same: The United States is heading toward a brutally tyrannical socialist revolution—and if America goes down, every free country follows.

 

Well, now it’s here, people, unfolding before our very eyes.

 

So, what can be done? Can the Republic be saved? Honestly, I don’t know.

 

However, I can suggest some steps that would at least give this country a fighting chance.

 

  1. Face Reality

 

Millions of Americans are still in complete denial. Many think the military is secretly in control—that it’s only a matter of time until justice is done and President Donald Trump is restored. There’s a “secret plan”—just “have faith.” The truth is that Trump was outmaneuvered by an alliance of communists, globalists, and even traitors in his own party. The “deep state” is now almost fully in control.

 

Trump isn’t coming back into office any time before 2024—if we still have meaningful elections by then.

 

To make sure they can never be voted out of office, the Democrats plan to enfranchise 22 million illegal immigrants, abolish the electoral college, gain at least four more far-left senators through Puerto Rican and D.C. statehood, and flood the country with tens of millions more third-world refugees and illegal immigrants. They also plan to nationally introduce voting “reforms,” i.e., mass mail-in balloting, abolition of ID requirements, etc. that will guarantee eternal Democratic Party control.

 

If the Democrats can abolish the Senate filibuster and place at least four more leftist “Justices” on the Supreme Court, there’ll be virtually no way to stop any of this if we rely on traditional political methods.

 

We’re undergoing a Marxist-Leninist revolution driven by China—right now, in real time.

 

The military can’t save us, nor can Trump. On the contrary, it’s up to patriots to protect Trump and the Armed Services from unrelenting Democrat/communist attacks.

 

When enough Americans face the unpleasant truth, then, and only then, can we talk about hope.

 

  1. Stop All Violent Rhetoric

 

Violence will not save America. The harsh reality is that President Barack Obama had eight years to replace patriotic generals with left-leaning political appointees. He did a great job. If violence breaks out (God forbid) the military will stand with the government, not the insurgents.

 

Does anyone think Russia and China, and Cuba and North Korea and Iran would stand idly by while their Democrat friends are being defeated by a patriotic uprising? They would undoubtedly use the opportunity to finish off their “main enemy” once and for all.

Beware anyone inciting violence online, at a public gathering, or in a private meeting. Distance yourself fast. They will be at best hopelessly naive, at worst government provocateurs.

 

The left is praying for “right wing” violence. It will give them an excuse for a massive crackdown on patriotic Americans. This country will be saved peacefully or not at all. If significant violence breaks out, it’s over.

Having said that, the Second Amendment must be preserved all costs. An armed populace is at least some check on tyranny, even if useless in the face of biological warfare or nuclear attack. Americans should keep their guns and work every day to ensure they never have to use them against their own people.

 

  1. Restore Election Integrity in All Red States

 

If voter trust isn’t restored within months, the Republican Party is doomed. Democrats will continue to vote. Large numbers of Republican voters will stay home. They won’t trust the elections and will refuse to participate. We’ve already seen this play out in the Georgia Senate elections.

 

Thirty states are currently led by Republican legislatures. Some are already holding enquiries into fixing deficient electoral procedures. Most will be whitewashes unless the public gets heavily involved. If the resulting recommendations don’t include the elimination of electronic voting machines and heavy penalties for organized voter fraud, it’s likely to be a window dressing exercise. Be alert.

 

Patriots must work to restore voting integrity first in the red states, then the red counties of the blue states—then after 2022, the whole nation.

 

Get involved in this process. It’s a top priority.

 

  1. Close the Republican Primaries Immediately

 

This should be a no-brainer, but no one is talking about it. Only five U.S. states have truly closed Republican primaries. This means that in most states Democrats and Independents (even communists) can vote in Republican primaries—and they do. All over the country, the GOP’s enemies vote in Republican primaries to pick the weakest, most wimpy candidate they can.

 

That’s why the Republican base is super patriotic but most of their elected representatives in most states vote like “progressive” Democrats.

 

Close the primaries, Republican patriots. It will transform your party.

 

  1. Organize a Compact of Free States

 

MAGA folk need to build a “nation within a nation.” This doesn’t mean secession—Russia and China would be quick to exploit such division. What’s needed is a re-affirmation of 10th Amendment rights as already outlined in the U.S. Constitution. The already out-of-control federal government is about to go on a rampage against every form of independence left in the country. Every red state with the courage to do so must immediately begin working toward a formal compact to collectively oppose all forms of federal overreach.

 

Such a formal alliance should start with Florida and Texas, then grow by inviting Oklahoma, the Plains states, most of the Southern states, New Hampshire, the free Midwestern states, and the Republican-led Northern and Western states.

 

Such an alliance, stretching from the Florida Keys and the Gulf of Mexico all the way to the Great Lakes and the Canadian border and even Alaska, would bisect the entire country.

 

Adding the red counties of the blue states such as Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and California, would create a voting and economic bloc that Washington would find exceedingly difficult to challenge.

 

When the Biden administration recently suggested that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis close all restaurants in his state to slow the CCP virus pandemic, the governor politely refused—citing the ineffectiveness and horrendous economic consequences of mass lockdowns.

 

Biden then reportedly hinted at an unconstitutional ban on air and road travel to and from Florida. This threat might work against Florida alone. It wouldn’t work against Florida plus Texas and Oklahoma and 10 to 25 other states.

 

The United States is technically a federation of free and independent states. It’s time to fully realize that ideal.

 

Southern states will soon be reeling under a massive new wave of illegal immigration. The federal government will do nothing to prevent it. Texas, Florida, Arizona, and the free counties of New Mexico and California need to be preparing to defend their borders now. This is not an immigration issue that is the Constitutional preserve of the federal government—this is a state public welfare issue.

 

Of course, the Biden-Harris administration plans to pack the Supreme Court with more left-wing justices to make virtually anything they want “constitutional.” But this shouldn’t even need to go the courts. State governments already have the power under the 10th Amendment to nullify Federal overreach. They simply have to band together to put Washington back into its constitutionally tiny box.

 

The Republic will be saved through the courageous application of the First Amendment (free speech) and the 10th Amendment (state sovereignty).

 

  1. Republic Review

 

Every free state should immediately embark on the adoption of the “Republic Review” process. There’s a small but growing movement in some Western and Northern states to review their engagement with the federal government to eliminate or nullify all unconstitutional relationships.

 

Under the Constitution, the states are technically superior to the federal government. They’re sovereign under the “equal footing” doctrine and have the legal power to refuse to engage in unconstitutional programs.

 

For instance, most states only get about 10 percent of their education budget from the feds—but are almost completely subservient to Department of Education dictates. Why not forgo the measly 10 percent in exchange for a return to local control over all public education? America is losing its youth in the public schools. Every patriotic parent knows that.

 

This would give parents more control over their children’s education and restore citizen’s control over their own government. Is this worth 10 percent of your state’s education budget?

 

If the free states are willing to stand against federal government overreach they must also be prepared to forgo unconstitutional federal money.

 

A thorough Republic Review audit would soon return power to the state legislatures—where it belongs.

 

  1. Form a Multi-State ‘America First’ Popular Alliance

 

The left has “Our Revolution,” a nationwide alliance of 600 groups operating both inside and outside of the Democratic Party. Operated by Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA, Our Revolution works in the Democratic primaries to elect far-left candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) into office. Our Revolution is not subject to Democratic Party discipline, but it does get to choose Democratic candidates.

 

We need an “America First” umbrella group to operate both outside and inside the Republican Party—even possibly within the Democratic Party in some areas.

 

This organization should be all about pushing the MAGA/America First agenda at every level of government, in every state of the union.

 

Such a movement could harness the energy of 70 million to 80 million Trump voters without being under Republican Party control.

 

America First could unite the Tea Party and MAGA movements, grassroots Republicans, patriotic Democrats, and Independents to mobilize tens of millions of voters to transform the GOP into the truly populist, patriotic MAGA party it should always have been.

 

Take that Mitch McConnell!

 

Trump is already vetting candidates to stand against the Republican congressmembers and senators who betrayed their own base after the 2020 election.

 

America Firsters should register Republican by the millions to primary out dozens of Republican sell-outs in 2022. The America First/MAGA movement could “own” every level of the GOP by 2024. The GOP needs the MAGA movement way more than the MAGA movement needs the Republican brand.

 

Meanwhile, there are almost 70 far-left Democratic congressmembers in red states. Just restoring voter integrity alone could defeat several of them in 2022.

 

Running MAGA candidates backed by Trump in every one of those races could flip many more. It would be more than feasible to take back the House in 2022 to make Biden a “lame duck” president.

 

  1. Boycott/Buycott Bigtime

 

Patriots should be abandoning Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc. for more honest platforms. They should also enthusiastically support efforts by DeSantis to heavily fine Big Tech operators who “cancel” patriots. If 25 or 30 free states did the same, “Big Tech” would soon be little tech.

 

Patriots need to organize nationwide boycotts of unpatriotic companies and buycotts for loyal American companies like My Pillow and Goya Foods.

 

Already, local groups are drawing up lists of “unfriendly” local companies and friendly alternatives so patriots can stop supporting their opponents and spend more with their fellow MAGA supporters.

 

It would also be smart to sequentially target vulnerable unpatriotic companies.

 

Imagine if 80 million MAGA patriots resolved to begin a nationwide boycott of one such company starting now. The boycott would go on indefinitely until the target company was broke, or it apologized for “cancelling” patriots. If applicable, every MAGA family could simultaneously commit to buying at least one of the cancelled person’s products this year.

 

On April 1, another disloyal company could be targeted, then another on May 1, another on June 1, etc.

 

After two or three companies had collapsed or apologized, we would soon see large companies start to back away from the “Cancel Culture.”

Patriots have spending power in this country, people. We need to starve our enemies and feed our friends.

 

Again, patriots need to build a nation within a nation.

 

It should be also a given that every American patriot boycotts all communist Chinese goods wherever possible. Check those labels! Buying Chinese communist products in 2021 is like buying Nazi products in 1939. It’s immoral and it’s suicidal. [Blog Editor bold text]

 

The Chinese Communist Party just crippled the U.S. economy with the CCP virus. Then, pro-China communists instigated mass Black Lives Matter rioting. Then the same people worked to influence the 2020 election.

 

It’s about time Americans stop funding their number one enemy—the CCP. [Blog Editor bold text]

 

  1. Remove Malign Foreign Influence at State Level

 

DeSantis has unveiled legislation to massively curtail communist Chinese activity in Florida. The legislation also targets several other enemy states including Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela—all of which interfere in this country’s internal affairs.

In December 2020, Trump’s Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe revealed that the Chinese Communist Party was conducting a “massive influence campaign” targeting dozens of members of Congress and their aides, including through attempted blackmail and bribery.

 

Currently, thousands of foreign companies from hostile regimes are buying up land, food production facilities, technical companies, educational facilities, and infrastructure.

 

Tens of thousands of foreign agents are co-opting unpatriotic businessmen, unethical politicians, and sympathetic journalists in the interests of China and other malevolent states.

 

Under the Biden-Harris administration nothing will be done to stop these activities at a federal level—but much can still be done by the free states.

 

If every free state cracked down on foreign bribery, corruption. espionage, and subversion, this country would be transformed.

 

If hundreds of corrupt academics, journalists, businessmen, and politicians (from both parties) were exposed and punished, this country would soon be well on the way to moral, economic, and political recovery.

 

What Do You Think?

 

These steps alone will not save America—but I believe they would be a huge step in the right direction. I will be following up with further suggestions and plans. But for now, I’d love to see your comments, suggestions, and criticisms in the comments section.

 

Thank you for reading. From a grateful Kiwi, God bless America.

What a mess the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) have gotten themselves into.  After refusing to provide ballots to the Arizona Senate for months, as soon as the judge ordered the MCBOS to hand them over, shredded ballots are found in a dumpster.

 

We reported yesterday on how shredded ballots were found in a dumpster in Maricopa county:

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Ballots In Arizona’s Maricopa County Found Shredded and In Dumpster – Days Before Senate Audit To Begin

 

Piles of shredded ballots were located today in a dumpster in Maricopa County Arizona.  This find occurs only days before the Senate’s audit of the county’s 2020 election results is due to start. For months the Board of Supervisors in Maricopa County have blocked and delayed any independent audit performed by the Arizona Senate of … Continue reading

 

Later in the day, a mysterious fire broke out at one of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors’ farms.  It is unknown if the incident is related to the county’s 2020 Election ballots:

The Arizona Maricopa County election coverup continues.  These crooks are doing all they can to obstruct justice and tamper with evidence because they know they can get away with it. The Arizona Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) on Wednesday loaded its 2020 Election ballots on a truck for delivery to the Arizona Senate.  After … Continue reading

 

Today we can report that as the ballots are being pieced back together, they do appear to be from the 2020 election.  For example, the section below shows all corporate commission candidates from 2020:

We also saw yesterday that the ballots were filled out for candidates:

Many people in the state are tired of the corruption in the county.  They want a full forensic audit of the county that will uncover any and all invalid ballots from the 2020 election:

Will the American people ever see the final 2020 election results in Maricopa County when all efforts to date are to obstruct and tamper with the ballots?  What happened to our country?

Criminal Dems/RINOs Impeach Trump


Why? Election Fraud MIGHT Bring a New Prez 1/20

 

By John R. Houk

© January 14, 2021

 

The Dems who are closer to Communism than at any point ever experienced in American history, have actually voted to impeach President Donald Trump with only a FEW days left until their criminal election victor Biden is inaugurated as the USA’s first Communist President.

 

This whole election cycle has proven one thing. A person with a “D” by their name or a supporter of the Dem-Marxist Party can commit election crimes with impunity and face ZERO consequences for those crimes from law enforcement or from State/Federal Courts.

 

BUT actual supporters of the rule of law and a President who had his election stolen (with proof refused to be observed any level of Court due to illicitly fabricated concepts of Standing) and get actively upset that nowhere came close the level perpetrated by Antifa/BLM violence, looting, and property destruction are called seditionists and terrorists as the truly elected President is called the inciter. If Patriots were and are incited to revolt against this present tyranny, IT IS THE DEM-MARXISTS who are inciting anger by getting a pass for crimes committed against WE THE PEOPLE who had their majority votes nullified by Election Fraud instituted by Dem-Marxists in six or seven key States.

 

I pray Christ comes soon or if the Lord further delays, a Corrupt Biden/Harris CCP-owned Administration faces the wrath of Patriots that yet another Trump faux-impeachment will only further enflame rather bring a mythic kumbaya for Sheeple to obey.

 

The below Daily Caller article lists several House Republicans that joined the Dem-Marxists. I am a registered Republican chomping at the bit for ANY Conservative Political Movement to remove the mantle of the GOP to be replaced by another Political Party devoid of Sheeple status quo Establishment politics. A Party that returns the American Republic back to the roots that actually made the USA a shining light on a hill of Liberty. Ignoring the deceptive revisionism of the Lincoln Project and the 1619 Project.

 

Here is the Daily Caller list of American traitors calling themselves Republicans that need to be removed from Office via Primary, a NEW POLITICAL PARTY or by means the Dems label as sedition:

 

  • Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney

 

  • Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez

 

  • Washington Rep. Jamie Herrera-Beutler

 

  • New York Rep. John Katko

 

  • Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger

 

  • Michigan Rep. Peter Meijer

 

  • Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse

 

  • South Carolina Rep. Tom Rice

 

  • Michigan Rep. Fred Upton

 

  • California Rep. David Valadao

 

Faces of Above RINO Traitors

 

To those concerned about a Dem-majority in Congress. Election crimes have already made that a fact in 2020/21. Only a political shake-up forcing the rule of law to hold all criminals accountable regardless of political affiliation or crony corporation will bring public trust again.

House Votes To Impeach President Trump For The Second Time

Daily Caller

 

The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to impeach President Donald Trump for the second time during his presidency.

 

The House impeachment resolution charges Trump with one article of “incitement of insurrection” and the effort is being led by Democratic Reps. David Cicilline of Rhode Island, Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Ted Lieu of California.

 

The vote Wednesday was 232-197 with 10 Republicans, including Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, and New York Rep. John Katko, voting to impeach.

 

Here Are The Ten Republicans Who Voted To Impeach Trump:

 

  • Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney

 

  • Ohio Rep. Anthony Gonzalez

 

  • Washington Rep. Jamie Herrera-Beutler

 

  • New York Rep. John Katko

 

  • Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger

 

  • Michigan Rep. Peter Meijer

 

  • Washington Rep. Dan Newhouse

 

  • South Carolina Rep. Tom Rice

 

  • Michigan Rep. Fred Upton

 

  • California Rep. David Valadao

 

Democrats in the House of Representatives introduced at least one article of impeachment against Trump on Monday morning after rioters supporting Trump stormed the U.S. capitol Wednesday, committing acts of vandalism and violence and postponing the electoral college certification process, forcing members of Congress to evacuate the building.

 

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer introduced the resolution, which called on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, NBC News reported. That resolution was passed by the House Tuesday night, but Pence declined to enact the 25th amendment.

 

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office confirmed that he will not “consent” to reconvening the Senate before Jan. 19, effectively killing hopes for removing Trump from office before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. McConnell is also reportedly considering voting to convict Trump in an impeachment trial. [Blog Editor: What an evil RINO. Trump aided in McConnell’s reelection. REMEMBER THAT PATRIOTS!]

 

According to Axios founder and former Politico Playbook editor Mike Allen, there is a “50-50 chance” McConnell will vote to impeach Trump. McConnell is reportedly considering his own legacy and wants to defend the Senate and the institution. If McConnell voted to impeach, it is likely other Senate Republicans would jump on board, making it possible for the Senate to impeach Trump. [Blog Editor: That is actually erroneous. The House impeaches – The Senate convicts or exonerates.]

 

“The Senate institutional loyalists are fomenting a counterrevolution” to Trump, a top Republican close to McConnell, reportedly told Axios.

 

The New York Times released a report Tuesday, citing anonymous sources, saying that McConnell is pleased Democrats will try to impeach Trump, as it will help separate the Republican party from Trump.

 

The house will now have to vote on sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate.

Traitor-Pence Threatens Government Tyranny against Trump Patriots

The pro-Communists in America’s once upon a time Two-Party System support the coup of election criminality then have the audacity to threaten Trump Patriots DAMN tired of corrupt government – including the Judiciary – to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

 

Think of that … BLM and Antifa Communists beat up Trump supporters, commit vandalism, loot from businesses AND face near zero legal consequences! Dem-Marxist commit election treason and no Courts listen and State governments DO NOTHING!

 

Pence is a TRAITOR! Move over Benedict Arnold. By all indications of who holds the reins of power, Pence succeeds in betraying the Founders’ Republic where Benedict Arnold failed.  … UNLESS … WE THE PEOPLE refuse to bow down even in the face of the legal power of tyranny and corrupt bullets that might seek our lives.

 

In the National File article PLEASE TAKE NOTE the moral outrage expressed by people calling themselves Republicans who stood on the sidelines with their heads stuck in the mud completely inactive to the ELECTION CRIMES perpetrated on the once shining light on a hill. Pence and his fellow threatening traitors may have extinguished that light with treasonous tyranny AGAIN…UNLESS…WE THE PEOPLE…

BREAKING: Pence Threatens Trump Voters, Conspires With Dems To Deploy National Guard Against Protesters Behind Trump’s Back

New statement reveals Pence conspired with Congressional leaders to authorize troop deployments in D.C. behind the President’s back

 

VP (Benedict Arnold) Mike Pence Conspired

 

By GABRIEL KEANE

January 6, 2021

National File

 

Vice President Mike Pence took to Twitter Wednesday to threaten the citizens who voted for his re-election in the 2020 presidential campaign, promising that pro-Trump protesters on Capitol Hill “will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” Moments later, news broke that Pence had defied Trump by unilaterally deployment the National Guard against American citizens.

 

According to a statement from the office of acting SECDEF Chris Miller, Pence met with Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Sen, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and the lawmakers conspired to deploy the National Guard against protesters behind President Trump’s back.

 

 

 

Additionally, Pence authored two tweets threatening punitive action against the citizens who voted for his re-election in 2020.

 

“The violence and destruction taking place at the US Capitol Must Stop and it Must Stop Now. Anyone involved must respect Law Enforcement officers and immediately leave the building,” Pence said.

Reports and video evidence indicate that Wednesday’s protest and occupation of federal buildings were mostly peaceful in nature, with the only reported fatality being a female protester who was gunned down by police.

 

“Peaceful protest is the right of every American but this attack on our Capitol will not be tolerated and those involved will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Pence raged.

 

 

President Trump called for peace in a video message Wednesday, but has been repeatedly attacked by GOP leadership in statements throughout the course of the day’s events.

 

In an appearance on the Fox News Channel, former White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus called protesters domestic terrorists who “have no respect for democracy” and act “opposite of patriotism.” Preibus described the concerns of Trump voters in Washington as “pure insanity and disgusting.”

Election Fraud is a FACT that so far – treasonous Courts have refused to adjudicate using legal mysticism most often attributed to Standing rather the Merits an actual crime was committed.

 

Here is a collection of videos which in my opinion should an American uprising of American Patriots against the Dem-Marxist Deep State entrenched bureaucracy to save the Founders’ Republic from One-Party Despotism (aided by Establishment Republicans).

Texas Puts SCOTUS into Play


Will SCOTUS Defend Republic or Criminal Coup?

 

John R. Houk, Blog Editor

December 10, 2020

 

As of 3:12 PM 12/9/20; The Gateway Pundit reports SEVENTEEN States joined Texas in suing Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania over Election UNCONSTITUTIONAL issues directly to SCOTUS. (My opinion: Nevada and Arizona should be included as culprits.)

 

I am cross posting three articles beginning with the article by TGP. This will be followed by an Epoch Times article touching on President Trump’s perspective. Which will be followed by a Just The News article examining a Constitutional application of the Texas-Plus lawsuit.

 

Hopefully more States demand SCOTUS end this Dem-Marxist Election criminality AND a bunch of Patriots swamp the SCOTUS building in peaceful (UNLESS the Dem-Marxist paramilitary Antifa/BLM show up) protest.

Trump Says He Will Intervene in Texas’ SCOTUS Election Case

By TOM OZIMEK

December 9, 2020 Updated: December 9, 2020

The Epoch Times

 

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he and/or members of his legal team would join, as intervenors, the lawsuit brought by Texas’ Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton to the U.S. Supreme Court against four battleground states.

 

“We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!” Trump said in a tweet.

 

An intervention, in legal terms, is a procedure that lets a nonparty join ongoing litigation if the case affects the rights of that party. The court considering an application to intervene, in this case the U.S. Supreme Court, has the discretion to allow or deny such a request.

 

In the lawsuit, Texas is alleging that Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin introduced last-minute unconstitutional changes to election laws, treated voters unequally, and triggered significant voting irregularities by relaxing ballot-integrity measures. The lawsuit is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to declare that the four battleground states conducted the 2020 election in violation of the Constitution.

 

The suit, filed on Dec. 7 and docketed the next day, is also seeking to prohibit the count of the Electoral College votes cast by the four states. For the defendant states that have already appointed electors, it asks the court to direct the state legislatures to appoint new electors in line with the Constitution.

 

Trump’s remarks about joining the suit as an intervenor came after several states expressed their support for the lawsuit. Attorneys general for Arkansas, Alabama, Missouri, and Louisiana have issued statements in support of Paxton’s motion.

 

On Tuesday, the president wondered if lawmakers or judges have the courage to help him challenge election results in key battleground states.

 

“Let’s see whether or not somebody has the courage—whether it’s a legislator or legislatures, or whether it’s a justice of the Supreme Court or a number of justices of the Supreme Court. Let’s see if they have the courage to do what everybody in this country knows is right,” Trump told a press conference in Washington during a summit on COVID-19 vaccines.

 

In the complaint to the Supreme Court, Paxton argues that the four battleground states had acted in a way that violated their own election laws and thereby breached the Constitution through enacting and implementing new measures, rules, and procedures right before the Nov. 3 election.

 

In some instances, the defendant states enacted such measures through the use of so-called friendly lawsuits, in which the plaintiff and the defendant collude to procure a court order, the lawsuit alleges. In other instances, a variety of state election officials allegedly exceeded their authority to promulgate rules and procedures that should have been enacted by each state’s legislature, as required by the Constitution’s Elections and Electors clause.

 

“The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution. By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,” Paxton said in a statement.

 

Attorneys general from the defendant states have disputed the allegations in the lawsuit.

 

Paxton argued that the actions he outlined in his complaint “constitute non-legislative changes to State election law by executive-branch State election officials, or by judicial officials” and, as such, votes cast by Electoral College electors pursuant to these actions should not be considered constitutionally valid.

 

Texas is also asking the Supreme Court (pdf) to grant a preliminary injunction or a temporary restraining order to block the four states from taking action to certify their election results or to prevent the state’s presidential electors from taking any official action. The presidential electors are scheduled to meet on Dec. 14.

 

The court has ordered the defendant states to respond to Texas’s motions by 3 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10.

Texas files lawsuit directly to Supreme Court challenging election results in four states

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton argues WI, MI, PA and GA made changes to election rules without legislative consent, violating the U.S. Constitution

 

By John Solomon and Carrie Sheffield

Updated: December 8, 2020 – 3:49pm

Just The News

 

In a novel legal strike, the state of Texas has asked the Supreme Court to invalidate the election results in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia, arguing officials in those four battleground states violated the Constitution by making changes to how ballots were cast and counted without legislative approval.

 

The lawsuit filed late Monday night by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton asked the justices to issue a temporary restraining order preventing the states “from taking action to certify presidential electors or to have such electors take any official action including without limitation participating in the electoral college.”

 

The suit argues that changes made by the state’s governors, secretaries of states and election supervisors were “inconsistent with relevant state laws and were made by non-legislative entities, without any consent by the state legislatures. The acts of these officials thus directly violated the Constitution.”

 

“I’m worried about the credibility of elections, not just right now, but I’m worried about the credibility of elections going forward,” Paxton told Just the News on Tuesday afternoon in a phone interview. “I’m not making a fraud argument, I’m making an argument based on the Constitution. And what we know happened, which was that we know state law was changed by people other than the state legislature, which is the only constitutionally authorized changes that are allowed … My argument is that the law was violated, the constitution was violated. I’m not addressing whether there was 2 million fraudulent ballots cast in Pennsylvania. I don’t know, and there’s no way to know, the way the system got set up, the way the rules got changed.”

 

States are allowed in certain circumstances to appeal directly to the Supreme Court, bypassing lower federal courts, in disputes involving other states. Paxton argued the state of Texas was wrongly harmed by the unconstitutional acts of the other states.

 

“These non-legislative changes … facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution,” the suit stated. “By these unlawful acts, the Defendant States have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens vote, but their actions have also debased the votes of citizens in Plaintiff State and other States that remained loyal to the Constitution.”

 

You can read the full lawsuit here:

 

Texas Lawsuit 12 – 8- 20.pdf

 

Paxton said the defendant states may have had good intentions in making changes to the elections to address COVID-19 but nonetheless violated the Constitution, requiring a dramatic remedy.

 

“Certain officials in the Defendant States presented the pandemic as the justification for ignoring state laws regarding absentee and mail-in voting,” the suit argued. “The Defendant States flooded their citizenry with tens of millions of ballot applications and ballots in derogation of statutory controls as to how they are lawfully received, evaluated, and counted. Whether well intentioned or not, these unconstitutional acts had the same uniform effect they made the 2020
election less secure in the Defendant States.”

 

The lawsuit was backed by the Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project, a conservative group that has taken the national lead in challenging election irregularities in 2020. “The lawless nature of the 2020 election is on full display in the suit filed by Texas,” Amistad director Phill Kline said. “There was a coordinated and unprecedented effort of private interests improperly joining with leftist government officials to illegally support the democrat ticket in this election. This involved the sharing of sensitive citizen information with the private sector and the flow of more than $500 million from the private sector to targeted government officials and local governments.”

 

Paxton told Just the News he did not rely on research from the Amistad Project in his lawsuit and as of Tuesday afternoon had not spoken with other states about the issue but anticipated he could when he arrives in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. Paxton’s scheduled to meet with President Trump on a pre-arranged meeting.

 

Paxton rejected interpretations of stare decisis arguments saying that some states have wrongly trying to redefine who has constitutional authority over running elections in order to sow chaos and delay a clear presidential election result.

 

“I know what the Constitution requires, and it’s always required that,” Paxton said. “It’s the Constitution, so if case law says that the Constitution shouldn’t be the Constitution, well, I think that case law’s wrong.”

 

However, Paxton said he is hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court — including with the newly-sworn Justice Amy Coney Barrett to possibly tip the balance — will ultimately restore Constitutional order under a strict textualist reading that prohibits what Paxton said was last-minute judicial usurpation of the prerogatives of state legislatures to make election rules.

 

“I’m always for reading based on what the Framers meant, otherwise we don’t really have a Constitution if it’s just nine judges up there and they can make up whatever they want,” Paxton said. “We don’t really have a Constitution, we just have a ruling oligarchy of nine judges. And I’m in favor of judges who aren’t making the law for us and telling us what to do. I’m in favor of judges who are put there, they look at the law as it was written, whether by a legislature by the Founders, and they follow it. That’s their job.”
