I have posted with some frequency the thoughts of those who point to impending Martial Law or some sort of organized Patriot uprising to save the American Republic from the obvious crimes of an election coup to enthrone an illegitimate President with a protected criminal past of corruption with so much stench that I am convinced treason was and is involved. TODAY it is my sense those voices telling Patriots that Donald Trump will prevail via one fashion or another was more akin to a delusional pipedream.

I don’t know if these voices for a Patriot America were simply fed a steady diet of deception to assuage Americans while the Marxist Left completes the tightening of the vice totalitarianism or – GOD FORBID! They were a part of delivering false hope.

I pray to God Almighty that my assessment is wrong and on January 20 an awakened Patriotic Military throws off the emerging bands of despotic Dem-Marxist rule under the actual dark winter hands of Biden/Harris.

UNFORTUNATELY, I am convinced the ENTIRE instruments of government – Executive (especially the controlling unelected Deep State Bureaucracy), Legislative and Judicial Branches – are so tainted by lawlessness, the United States of America will descend into the Big Brother Totalitarian Banana Republic of America.

Politically, do NOT expect the rule of law to preserve the Founders Republic. ONLY We The People can do something politically. And that SOMETHING is NOT sitting on our hands hoping for the best. Just as in 1776 when American colonies became fed up with British governing tyranny. ONLY a 1776 mindset among THE PEOPLE can WE again rediscover the Freedom encompassing Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness individually rather than a cog of fiction by the tentacles of a controlling State. If you are an old Trekkie, you might understand the meaning of the Borg has arrived and their Collective is telling you, “Resistance is futile.” I for one am RESISTING! Below are Justin Smith’s thoughts on an emerging Dem-Marxist society.

Amerikkans Are Content to Abandon Freedom

OR We Win Or We Die as Americans – Why Stand We Here Idle?

… Gentlemen may cry, ‘Peace! Peace! — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!” ~ Patrick Henry [Blog Editor: this is the last paragraph. ENTIRE SPEECH – 1775]

The note of the day coming from all corners of Conservative punditry is “Don’t give them an excuse to take it (Liberty), don’t give them an excuse”, as they admonish conservatives across America to be careful about speaking out on their rights to keep and bear arms as a right fundamental to maintaining all of our other rights. They add that everybody must refrain from speaking on the right to act violently in kind in self-defense when violently attacked.

And on top of this, we are witnessing Corporate America doing the bidding of the Marxist Communists and silencing Conservatives, and anyone who questions the results of Election 2020 in a manner that would make Stalin blush, all across social media sites, going so far as to have Twitter, Facebook, Google, Mozilla, Apple and Amazon all conspire to de-platform Parler (considered a site for Conservatives), even going so far as to essentially destroy its ability to function anywhere else as a business by taking down its servers. The server base that currently controls the internet is completely under the control of America’s communists and this is an existential threat to Free Speech and freedom and Liberty themselves.

Early Americans rose up to cast off this very sort of tyranny during our War for Independence, and while free speech is well and good, it’s purpose must always be in the service of those righteous and noble ideas that promote the greatest freedom and liberty for all people.

What we are witnessing today is an advocacy for tyranny, from the Democratic Party, that is essentially the Communist Party USA, that is being facilitated by Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the AOC Squad. Sure, they have free speech rights, but they do not have the right to implement an entirely new system that completely squashes our Inalienable Rights, the Founding itself, and takes away all semblance of freedom in our land. America’s covenant was one based on the preservation of those Inalienable Rights, which include the right to preserve and protect one’s private property, and as such, no real American can ever really compromise or even tolerate Democratic Party Communists within our society.

The Far Left has always been determined to take away freedom and liberty from all Americans, because, getting right down to brass tacks, Socialism is just another word for Totalitarianism.

Today, the American patriots have been reticent to take the field of battle, and it’s been the Communists of Antifa — the weepy, self-hating whites who have bought into the Bulls**t of the Critical Race Theory — Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panthers and all their fringe supporters that have been charging forward throughout every U.S. city attacking innocent people for their Conservative views and destroying any and everything that has anything to do with America’s Founding. America is under a hard assault from Her Amerikkans, those hard Far Left destroyers and Takers who believe they are owed something for past wrongs committed by a “racist” America, that have caused them no harm in this lifetime, since our government has worked tirelessly over the past sixty-five years to make certain that people of color have equality under the law, inadvertently creating an existing system that has actually ensured they have more rights than the average white person in America.

G**dammit! Will Y’All please remove Your heads from Your own damn ignorant ass?

Elected officials everywhere have been taking our Liberty for the past 100 years, through compromise with the shiftless, Socialist Takers, who see government as an entity to provide for every single need of all the people, and the Far Left has been positioning their people and planning to suppress every Inalienable Right up to this very day, regardless of who was committing violence. And one must note, that even though the majority of violent events, nearly all the violence over the past century, have been plotted, initiated and executed by the Marxist and Maoist Communists of America, we heard nobody calling for greater crackdowns on any “peaceful protesters” until Conservatives finally responded in kind on January 6th, with their own “mostly peaceful” protest, after witnessing the Far Left violence of the Marxist groups of Black Lives Matter and Antifa burn entire cities to the ground, and in response to a stolen election and the looming presentation of an Imposter to the Presidency, Joe Biden, on the 20th.

On January 6, 2021 – one Black Lives Matter activist, John Sullivan, used a microphone, as he yelled to the crowd: “… we about to burn this s**t down… we got to rip Trump out of office … f**king pull him out of that s**t … we about to go get that motherf’er … it’s time for a revolution.” [Blog Editor: Justin’s above quote is only a fraction of the unintelligent profanity laced threats of violence against Trump and Patriots: HERE & HERE] The Justice Department has since [JOS] charged and arrested Sullivan on multiple charges. [Blog Editor: In looking for a source of Justin’s quote, I discovered AGAIN if you are a Dem-Marxist, you can commit crimes without consequence: Activist John Sullivan Released Conditionally Without Bail After Arrest Over Capitol Building Breach; By MIMI NGUYEN LY; The Epoch Times; 1/16/21]

Irrefutably, a majority of Democrat Communists are hard-core malevolent beings who take extreme satisfaction in the pain and suffering of others, not so unlike their predecessors seen in the movements of Stalin, Mao, Fidel and Pol Pot, since their ideology isn’t fueled by an honest desire to help the downtrodden, but rather, it is fueled by an unhinged envy, anger and hate focused on illogical notions regarding class and racial differences and identity politics that only further divide a people. And no matter that some people have bought into the false promises of Communism, through their own ignorance or naïvetés, the primary drivers behind the Democratic Party and its Communist Platform and agenda are anger and hate.

Let’s not forget all the violence based on the false narrative of “systemic racism in America’s police agencies”, that was used to destroy parts of America in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland, once again at the instigation of Black Lives Matter — an outright Communist organization through and through, from its supporters and funding to its leaders — and the New Black Panthers. Or the words of Barack Hussein Obama, the Terrorist-In-Chief, who said, “If they bring a knife, we bring a gun”, as he spoke about conservatives who might even consider defending themselves against the Communist-inspired violence.

In June 2019, regarding the violent protests seen in Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Dallas, ever more the radical Marxist, Senator Kamala Harris stated: “They’re not going to stop. This is a movement. I’m telling you. … and everyone, beware. … They’re not going to stop before election day in November, and they are not going to stop after election day. … And they should not, and we should not.”

Shortly after events on January 6th, all America heard the Leftist media breathlessly speaking of MAGA people and Trump supporters as “domestic terrorists”, since Communists always accuse their enemy of being guilty of the same things they themselves do. We also hear Joe Biden, the Imposter to the Presidency, call the DC protestors “insurrectionists” and “domestic terrorists”, after he called the incredibly violent arsons, looting and burning of American cities this summer “Peaceful Protests of Summer” for months.

Biden evidently doesn’t understand the terms “rule of law”, “dissent”, “protesters”, as he spoke the day after the Capitol unrest and harshly demanded of America: “Don’t you dare call them protesters. They were a riotous mob. Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists. It’s that basic. It’s that simple.” If he fails to understand these terms, I’ll bet he knows the meaning of the words “Traitor” and Treason”, since he’s the embodiment of these terms.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently stated that she “almost died” in a confrontation with the protesters at the Capitol. Oh well. People died in Minneapolis, Kenosha, St Louis, Seattle and many other Democratic Communist controlled cities where their elected officials refused to uphold actual state law, and in many cases turned the law upside and abused and misused their power to violate those laws themselves, as they gave the Brown Shirt Fascist street soldiers of BLM and Antifa free rein to wreak havoc and mayhem, commit any heinous act of violence, and sow the seeds of chaos. It’s good that she got just a small taste of the same fear that was spread across America throughout this year.

In a recent [JOS] Instagram video, AOC said: “I did not think, I did not know if I was going to make it to the end of that day alive, and not just in a general sense, but also in a very, very specific sense and, you know, I think it’s an opportunity for a lot of us to talk about trauma as well.”

Let’s not forget that over two years ago, on October 4, 2018; a group of Leftist protesters took over a Senate Building in order to protest the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. In the ensuing chaos of that day, we saw actresses Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski arrested, along with 128 other demonstrators, with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, telling them that they were “speaking truth to power because you care about the future, you care about our children, you care about who is leading the country …”.

Well guess what. Conservative Americans care about who is leading the country, apparently much more than Leftists who have “elected” Joe Biden, the worse and most destructive individual they could have ever thought to elect.

And, if one really wants to look at one of the most chaotic moments in the takeover of a federal building, one should look at what happened on March 1, 1954 in the House of Representatives. Four Puerto Rican Nationalists, three men and a woman who were seeking independence for Puerto Rico from the United States, entered the visitor’s gallery above the chamber and took their seats, while having entered with handguns unbeknownst to anyone. (Remember that security protocols were incredibly lax back then).

Around 2:30 p.m., they opened fire onto the House Floor and unfurled a Puerto Rican flag, in an act of violence meant to draw attention to their demand for Puerto Rico’s independence. Clifford Davis of Tennessee was shot through one calf; Al Bentley had been shot through his abdomen and was stretched out on the floor; Ken Allison of Alabama was shot through one knee; and Ben Jensen of Iowa was shot in one shoulder, and the bullet bounced inside his body, as it traveled down to his waist.

On January 12th during a fairly thunderous press conference, acting U.S. Attorney for D.C. Michael Sherwin stated that law enforcement officials are treating the unrest at the Capitol “like an international counterterrorism investigation” and “looking at everything — money, travel records” with “no resource … unchecked”. This is set to be one of the largest investigations in U.S. history, as all fifty-six FBI field offices are involved, largely to give a nod to Biden, who isn’t even in office yet.

In just the exact same manner as Trump used the “police brutality” riots to justify an executive order that authorized a ten-year prison term for anyone who damaged federal property, America can now expect to see Biden and his AOC Commie Squad turn this to their advantage as they focus on naming all Christian Conservatives and Trump supporters “domestic terrorists”. And in fact, the day after the civil upheaval at the Capitol, Biden explicitly stated he has made it a priority to pass a law against domestic terrorism, and he has been urged to create a White House Cabinet post to oversee the fight against ideological [read anything deemed to be conservative] inspired violent extremists and increase funding for the fight, as noted by the Wall Street Journal.

This mess our elected officials have created continues to expand exponentially, since tens of millions of Amerikkans are content to abandon their freedom and liberty and hand themselves over to the “good will” of the Government, the Nanny Super-State, the Leviathan, a non-existent good will, such as it is, and ever more intent on growing its own power, whether Republicans or Democrats are in charge — people who demand cradle to grave care and damned the cost, so long as they can post their idiotic selfies to social media, where PhDs will continue to receive government financing for whatever thesis will get them a grant. And, in the meantime, the Socialist philosophy and the ideas of Marx are so deeply entrenched in public schools that America’s children graduate as idiots, counting on their fingers and unable to write a coherent paragraph.

America will soon have to awaken to the fact that when any country sows the seeds of stupidity, greed and envy in any area, whether personal, financial, cultural, religious, sexual or governmental, it reaps the whirlwind, chaos and the fires of destruction. The die was cast, long before I was born, and I hate this fact, and so should any righteous American who is pure of heart and longing to see freedom and Liberty thriving once more in our country.

There isn’t one American — who believes in the Founding Principles and American traditions [Blog Editor: American traditions based on Christian Heritage: HERE, HERE & HERE], God and the Rights of All men [Unalienable/Inalienable interesting trivia] as seen in Nature and delivered to us by God [Blog Editor: For me a complicated essay on “the laws of nature and nature’s God” under the title, “The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God:
The True Foundation of American Law
” by KERRY L. MORGAN culminates with this bit of lucid understanding:

 

The first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence sets the stage for the American revolution and its indispensable reliance on the laws of God, the Creator.26 It declares:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with one 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 entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

By invoking the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” the 56 signers of the Declaration incorporated a legal standard of freedom into the forms of government that would follow. The theory of freedom adopted was simply that God’s law was supreme and gave freedom. The phrase “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” referred to the laws that God in his capacity as the Creator of the universe had established for the governance of people, nations and nature. These laws are variously described as the laws of Creation, God’s Creation laws or as the framers elected to refer to them, as the laws of nature and of nature’s God. This body of law, whatever it is called, can be ascertained by people through an examination of God’s creation, the text of the Bible, and to a certain degree, instinct or reason.]

— unwilling to live in this land peacefully, so long as they are left unmolested with their freedom and liberty and Inalienable God-Given Rights intact and un-assaulted, by men and women seeking to impose complete control and tyranny.

And therein lies our problem, since the Democratic Party Communists are unwilling to leave people alone to thrive in their freedom, because they need to exert controls through government, to threaten, coerce and otherwise intimidate people to give up their wealth, in order to provide for their followers and their own oligarchical aristocracy, who believe in stealing the wealth of others so they may live like kings.

And although some question the attribution of the following quote to Hans-Hermann Hoppe, it has long been asserted that he once told a reporter that, “men will never be free (and I would add Liberty will not be safe) until the last democrat is strangled by the entrails of the last communist”, and I am in a thousand percent agreement. [Blog Editor: Hoppe’s play on words of an attributed to Denis Diderot (Diderot bio): “Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”]

Each successful Leftist totalitarian infringement against our freedoms leaves Conservative Americans less and less choice and fewer options, other than actual civil war to take our country back. However, even though most Americans are no longer truly free, whether they realize it or not, they have grown fat and comfortable, just like fatted hogs or budgies are in their pens and cages.

And so, the question becomes — How far will the infringement on our freedoms have to go before the majority of the people rise up against the rising forces of tyranny in our society and the halls of our government? How much more abuse and violence are freedom-loving Americans willing to suffer at the hands and behest of criminal, treasonous Democrat Communists who do not truly seek co-existence in a peacefully governed America, but rather they seek ultimate and total control, to create a State in which their Marxist ideology is the final word and a hellish totalitarian “Socialist” regime reigns supreme, one in which there is no place for Conservatives who believe in those first principles set forth by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence?

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed …”.

Hear that? “… deriving their Just Powers from the CONSENT of the Governed”, not by way of threats, intimidation, violence and the planned and coordinated destruction of our nation’s cities and monuments, or the murders of innocents.

As we prepare to restore America, as best we can in light of all the damage already done, one would do well to prepare themselves as if they’d already arrived at the end of their life. It’s time to balance our books and call for a full accounting from all America’s traitors, as we put the finishing touches on our lives and perhaps leave this world, with the knowledge we lived our lives well to the very end.

The terms are simple. We win or die.

However, far too many Americans have grown to adulthood, living fat, dumb and relatively happy under this government stupidity that has become a virtual norm for society, and thus the Leftstream media and social media too, who live only to lick the hand that feeds them and slaps Conservative America in the face. And the normal, independent, freedom-loving Americans aren’t yet quite angry or afraid enough to do the necessary hard things to take their rights and their futures in their own hands, restoring the Founding Principles and Liberty across the land, all but myself and the few thousands or millions of true American Patriots who are done tolerating the tyranny that runs roughshod over us all today.

Similar to Ireland’s Bloody Sunday in 1920, America will have many Bloody Sunday’s before the pot finally boils all the way over. But in this moment and in the aftermath of January 6, 2021; it’s without a doubt that the fragile bond between the American people and our government has been broken forever.

Over the past 65 years the Far Left has probed, prodded, provoked and pushed Conservative America and the weak, ineffective, too often compliant Republican Party into one flawed “compromise” after another, with each one costing us all an untold cost to our freedom and liberty that is now revealing itself in today’s events. Each poke, each provocation pushed us one step closer to the abyss of tyranny, and one day, that last “next step” will move the good and decent Americans, who love the Founding Principles and Freedom and America’s traditions — men and women who have tried to win converts to the cause of freedom in order that their grandchildren may inherit a world in which they are truly free — to do the unthinkable.

The rule of law has been so corrupted that it has done nothing but let Americans down time and again, as blatant corruption has become the rule and compromised politicians, activist judges and federal agencies have gone against America’s best interests and individual Liberty and Inalienable Rights.

On the day of the last “next step”, tired and furious Americans will take the hard task at hand and rise up to kill every last damned anti-American rat-bastard liberal, Democrat, Communist, Socialist, Antifa and BLM member in the country, at a rate that will make a course correction for America overnight. This day will be the day that American patriots so thoroughly execute America’s domestic terrorists and enemies from within, that we will never again need have this discussion, as every Democratic Communist and sympathizer and supporter — teachers, doctors, lawyers, journalists and CEOs alike and anyone who betrayed the American Founding along the way — are taken out and shot or their throats slit, to the point that the streets run slick with their blood … Unless we wait too late and allow the tyrants to consolidate their power and ingrain themselves permanently into the seats of government.

Joe Biden picks Kamala Harris to be his running mate: Here are all the reasons why she’s wrong for America


It is no longer big news that Senator Kamala Harris has been selected to run as Sleepy/Quid Pro Joe Biden’s Running Mate. (It’s doubtful mind-addled Joe actually picked Harris himself.) Harris has a host problematic issues connected to her legal/political career that should garner some admiration from Crooked Hillary. Zero of those problems will be displayed by the Dem propaganda machine Mainstream Media.

A couple of days ago J.D. Heyes touched on really only a small scale of those problems on News Target. As you the small scale, you should keep in mind Joe Biden is 77 and showing huge signs of diminished mental acuity. Even Dems don’t believe Biden will complete a term if elected. It is my opinion if yet another crooked Dem like Joe is elected, he will resign soon after – God Help America – a potential election. Meaning Leftist ignore-the-Constitution Kamala Harris would be President.

 

Dear God in Heaven VOTE TRUMP!!!!

Joe Biden picks Kamala Harris to be his running mate: Here are all the reasons why she’s wrong for America

 

Kamala Harris

 

By JD Heyes

08/11/2020

News Target

 

Well, the drama is over: Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden did what his handlers told him to do; he’s picked a ‘woman of color’ to be his running mate.

 

Remember when ‘persons of color’ were telling Americans the color of someone’s skin shouldn’t matter?

 

In any event, those days are long gone, and the Democrat Party has become the party of victimhood and identity politics, the latter of which is a joke when you consider Democrats were the party of the breakaway Confederacy, the party of slavery, the party of the KKK, Jim Crow laws, segregation, and opposition to the civil rights movement.

 

Now we come to the pick: Sen. Kamala Harris of California, who once called Biden the biggest racist on the planet, which is about the only truthful thing she has said during the 2020 campaign cycle.

 

While she’ll be feted and celebrated by the phony ‘woke’ Left as ‘the first black female vice presidential pick’ (allowing Democrats to check that box), the fact is, she’ll have a lot to answer for in the coming days and weeks.

 

(Related: California scrubs controversial Kamala Harris-era arrest reports.)

 

Here are some of the many reasons why she’ll give Democrats fits:

 

— As the Marxist Democrat Left gets more ‘woke,’ the party’s ‘law enforcers’ have become more, shall we say, ‘tolerant’ of law-breaking. As a California district attorney and eventually attorney general, she pushed for a new state law that sought to punish parents if their kids were chronically truant. How will that work out with a party that lets dangerous criminals out of jail because they might catch COVID-19, or lets rioters and looters walk free?

— She supports the invasion of privacy through the expansion of police attainment of DNA samples. She wants cops to collect them from all crime scenes so that the samples can be added to global databases. Her home state allows them to be collected and preserved from anyone who’s ever arrested, even if they’re never charged.

— Harris supports civil asset forfeiture — the government’s taking of private property before any criminals proceedings are ever initiated. What a ‘constitutionalist.’

— She loves illegal immigrants and supports giving them extra rights that are not normally afforded to non-citizens, such as granting them law licenses and license to drive. Oh, and of course, as ‘president in waiting’ (Biden’s not mentally fit to govern) she’ll push for and expand giving taxpayer freebies to illegals. Hide and watch.

— Harris’ reputation as a ‘tough on crime’ prosecutor, again, will not bode well with her party’s new ‘look the other way’ and ‘defund the cops’ law enforcement policies. That said, her reputation isn’t even deserved.

— She said in 2017 she’d rather see the government shut down than vote for a spending bill that didn’t address the highly unconstitutional DACA program. She would later refuse to go along with a fix that President Trump proposed, proving that she, and other Democrats, really are hypocrites when they claim they ‘support’ the illegal aliens caught up in the unconstitutional Obama-era program.

— Then, of course, there was that time a California Superior Court judge found that she, as San Francisco district attorney, violated a defendant’s rights by hiding damaging info regarding a police drug-lab technician.

— In 2004, Harris angered her now-U.S. Senate colleague from California, Dianne Feinstein, when, as a district attorney, she would not seek the death penalty for David Hill, who had shot and killed a San Fran police officer with an AK-47 (he wounded another cop in the leg). Feinstein drew an ovation from a mostly-cop crowd when she said of Harris’ decision, “This is not only the definition of tragedy, it’s the special circumstance called for by the death-penalty law.”

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t remind readers that Harris, 30 at the time, dated the married San Fran Mayor Willie Brown, in his 60s, using that as a means of sleeping her way up the California political ladder.

 

Yeah, Harris was a great pick for Biden.

Regardless if you have the opinion that Rick Joyner’s (Joyner bios: Believers Portal & Wikipedia) theology is way out there or right on, the insights I just read on Church/State separation are spot on. Pay particular attention to the facts that various State Constitutions incorporated on religion that were repealed but NOT struck down by SCOTUS to demonstrate the Original Intent of America’s Founders. IT IS NOT THE LIVING CONSTITUTION crap America’s Left (Dem-Marxists) are trying to brainwash you to believe.

BLOG EDITOR (In Fascistbook jail since 1/20/20): I’ve apparently been placed in restricted Facebook Jail! The restriction was relegated after criticizing Democrats for supporting abortion in one post and criticizing Virginia Dems for gun-grabbing legislation and levying protester restrictions. Rather than capitulate to Facebook censorship by abandoning the platform, I choose to post and share until the Leftist censors ban me completely. Conservatives are a huge portion of Facebook. If more or all Conservatives are banned, it will affect the Facebook advertising revenue paradigm. SO FIGHT CENSORSHIP BY SHARE – SHARE – SHARE!!! Facebook notified me in pop-up on 1/20/20: “You’re temporarily restricted from joining and posting to groups that you do not manage until April 18 at 7:04 PM.”

A Clear Vision—Heritage Brief 10

Word of the Week

 

By Rick Joyner

March 10, 2020

MorningStar Ministries

 

Following up on the fact that nowhere in The United States Constitution does it state that there must be a separation between the church and the state, it only states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Because Congress was the Federal Government, this did not prohibit the states from establishing a recognized religion if they chose to, and many of them did.

 

For example, a couple of states made it a requirement to be of the Protestant faith to vote. Others required church attendance to vote. This did not make these laws right, and eventually they were all repealed, but that this was allowed proved that the states had authority to do such things under The Constitution. The Constitution only forbade Congress from establishing religion.

 

These religious test laws by some states were legal under The Constitution, but they were not right, and they did cause problems. The wisdom of how these matters could be worked out by the states while the whole country was not subjected to the turmoil they caused proved to be genius.

 

It has only been when the Federal Government started to exceed the authority given to it in The Constitution, and thereby encroach on the rights of the states and the people, that the turmoil and divisions this has caused became national and threatened to tear the nation apart. These unnecessary pressures will continue to grow until the Federal Government returns to its constitutional boundaries, and the rights of the states and the people that it has usurped is returned to them.

 

Concerning the proper and constitutional relationship between the church and the state, we have all likely witnessed men and women who were good friends ruin that friendship by getting married. It is a worthy goal for those who are married to be friends, but the love for each as friends may not work well in the more committed bonds of marriage. This is why many languages have different words for these two types of affection—friendship and romantic love. The point is that the church and the state should have a relationship as friends, but not marriage.

 

The church is called to be the bride of Christ, alone. In relation to the bride of Christ, the state is called to be like the eunuchs who provided security for the king and his bride. They defend her if necessary, but they can have no relationship with her beyond this.

 

When the relationship between church and state went beyond what it is supposed to be, it brought upon the earth the darkest of times—the Dark Ages. The abuses of the wrongful union of the church to the state was deeply impressed on the early Americans. Many had been witnesses to, or victims of, the horrible corruption that came from this wrongful union of the church and state in Europe, which culminated in the worst persecution in human history—The Inquisition.

 

The Inquisition was the persecution by Christians of other Christians and Jews. It was only possible by the institutional church being married to the state at that time. Christians and Jews who would not conform to the dogma of the institutional church of the time were slaughtered on an incomprehensible scale. Halley’s Bible Handbook estimates that up to 50 million of these non-conformist Christians and Jews were tortured and killed in The Inquisition. This number is corroborated by other historians. We can read in such works as Foxe’s Book of Martyrs the kind of demented and diabolical tortures used by The Inquisition. This was truly one of mankind’s darkest hours, and done in the name of Christ by the harlot church that had wrongfully married the state.

 

With many of the first colonists being victims of this persecution—and the leaders of the independence movement in America knowing their stories well—when The British imposed a law on the colonies that no minister of the gospel could be licensed except through The Church of England, it was intolerable to the colonists.

 

The Founders of the American Republic were resolute in ensuring that such a thing would never happen in America. To do this they established the government first and foremost on the freedom of religion, resolving to keep the Federal Government out of religion, but a protector of religious freedom.

 

As the Jews of Europe were persecuted along with the Protestants and other Christian movements, they also fled to America to escape. They were both welcomed and honored by their Christian fellow colonists. Those of other religions, or no religion, also found in America the tolerance and freedom they had not found anywhere else in the world. America was born as a haven for religiously persecuted people.

 

The American Founders were resolved to keep the church and state as separate entities, but it was clearly to keep the state out of the church’s business, not the other way around. We must then ask, how did The Supreme Court and many lower courts issue so many decisions prohibiting the free exercise of religion?  By blatantly violating The Constitution and The First Amendment. The leadership of Congress was too weak or inept to confront this tyrannical abuse by the judiciary.

 

If our Republic is to be preserved, we must recover the fact that The Supreme Court is not the “supreme law of the land”—The Constitution is. The Supreme Court has made many unconstitutional decisions in its history, some of which were reversed by later courts, but many have not. In recent times it is piling them up almost yearly because it has now departed so far from the lane The Constitution gave to the judiciary. If this is not corrected, it will soon cause the destruction of the Republic, just as Jefferson and other Founders warned.

 

We will cover these violations of The Constitution in more detail in future Briefs, along with the devastating impact they have had on the nation. The Judicial Branch may have been the biggest culprit in this, but all three branches are guilty of deviating from the clear and limited authority given to the Federal Government by The Constitution. The stress this has put on the entire country has us at the breaking point. Under The Constitution, the people are the sovereign. The longer we wait to demand that our Federal Government obey The Constitution, the greater the cost it will be to save our Republic.

I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpations.

     We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

BLOG EDITOR (In Fascistbook jail since 1/20/20): I’ve apparently been placed in restricted Facebook Jail! The restriction was relegated after criticizing Democrats for supporting abortion in one post and criticizing Virginia Dems for gun-grabbing legislation and levying protester restrictions. Rather than capitulate to Facebook censorship by abandoning the platform, I choose to post and share until the Leftist censors ban me completely. Conservatives are a huge portion of Facebook. If more or all Conservatives are banned, it will affect the Facebook advertising revenue paradigm. SO FIGHT CENSORSHIP BY SHARE – SHARE – SHARE!!! Facebook notified me in pop-up on 1/20/20: “You’re temporarily restricted from joining and posting to groups that you do not manage until April 18 at 7:04 PM.”

Red Flag Laws and Tyranny


Justin Smith again tackle the potential tyranny that will evolve under Dem Party gun-grabbing Red Flag Laws. Some good background to this post is Justin’s article from 8/12/19 entitled, “The Rush Towards Tyranny”.

 

I completely agree with Justin in today’s political Left vs. Right climate. The Right stands for the traditional interpretation of the U.S. Constitution and the implications behind the Declaration of Independence coupled with Christian concepts of Natural Law. The Left – regardless of any FAKE Constitution support – desires to toss the Constitution in favor of a Multiculturalist Socialist (really Marxist) society controlled by an elitist government that tells YOU what to believe and how to act.

 

The Dems are using the epidemic of mass shootings to realize their essentially totalitarian dream government tentacles in everything.

 

Conservatives had better find a Liberty protecting solution to mass shootings OR end up living in the Dem dream.

Red Flag Laws and Tyranny

Americans Must Draw a Blood-Red Line in the Sand

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/14/2019 5:31 PM

 

Outrage and fear are being used by representatives and Senators to attempt to strip away God-Given Rights and rights supposedly safeguarded by the Bill of Rights, specifically the 2nd, 4th and 5th Amendments, and the 14th Amendment and due process, through Red Flag “laws”, and they are exploiting recent mass shootings and the shock of Americans to browbeat and coax them into relinquishing some of their liberty to achieve greater safety, liberty that will be lost forever. And if they succeed, firearm restriction tentacles will spread across this once free nation, choking it, and eventually enslaving America’s children on the land of their ancestors.

 

Once any government gains a certain power or suppresses a right, it is an uphill battle to ever reverse that situation, since today the government’s interest, with the House in Democrat hands, and Senate Republicans complicit, lies more in growing its power more so than in protecting American’s rights. They are certainly making good use out of this current “crisis” and the notion of “Ordo ab chao” — “order out of chaos”.

 

One should recall that the Constitution was written by our Founders to preserve individual God Given Rights and Liberty and to limit the government oversight of those rights and liberty. Enumerating our God Given Rights in the Bill of Rights makes it clear that our Founding Fathers were determined to keep the government from interfering with these rights that belong to each and every American today.

 

The mass shootings in Gilroy, El Paso and Dayton were horrific and as terrible a thing as one never wishes to see happen again in America, but one is more likely to die accidentally falling from one’s front porch with a cup of coffee in their hand, than they are likely to be killed in a mass shooting.

 

In their rush for power and greater control over ‘We the People’, our so-called leaders simply ignore facts. Legal gun ownership had nothing to do with these murders. Our society’s descent into moral depravity and indifference to human life led to these horrific murders. None of the numerous laws across America that regulate firearms, in one manner or another, prevented these murders, but this is a point that Congress seems unwilling to acknowledge.

 

For anyone needing to place blame, there is blame enough to go around on many fronts. The most obvious is in the homes that failed to properly nurture, educate and guide these young men properly. Look no further than leftist policies that eroded the core of families in America, through nonsense like “it takes a village to raise a child” in their attempt to make children look to government as their most important benefactor and protector. Look at the efforts to erase God from the public square and the lives of everyday ordinary Americans, through federal government overreach and tyranny across most recent decades.

 

In the wake of the mass shootings, Ivanka Trump went to Instagram and posted a note, that called on Congress to “enact Red Flag Laws/Extreme Risk Protection Orders [ERPO] in every state, increase resources dedicated to mental health support nationwide and close background check loopholes.” She couldn’t have been more wrong than when she also referred to this action as “common sense reform”. [Blog Editor: The embedded links in the quote are added by the Editor.]

 

Regardless of the horror of what we see unfolding today, Ivanka Trump and people of similar intent are dead wrong, when they seek to impede and infringe on our Second Amendment, and rather than “common sense reform”, these proposals represent sheer ignorance and idiocy and an assault on our Second Amendment Rights. Rather than impede the God Given Right of every U.S. citizen to defend themselves with a firearm, Ivanka and her ilk should be working day and night to ensure that the Second Amendment, an inalienable right, remains inviolate and free from federal government overreach and tyrannical suppression.

 

Similarly, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is exhibiting the same exact ignorance and idiocy, and in a fervor of rare bipartisanship, McConnell and all the Democrats and many traitorous Republicans-In-Name-Only are all wound up and ready to be set loose, like puppets or mechanical dolls. McConnell recently stated, “But what we can’t do is fail to pass something. By just locking up, and failing to pass, that’s unacceptable”, marking a significant departure from his past position on firearm controls and legislation in the wake of the mass shootings.

 

NO! What is “unacceptable” is any more DAMNED infringement on Americans’ RIGHTS in a thinly veiled move to tighten the noose of federal control around the necks of law abiding Americans, while criminals go largely unchecked. Rather than pass one more law aimed at good and decent Americans that suppress their Second Amendment Right, leaders should be urging all the states to rescind any state law that illegitimately and unconstitutionally suppresses this right and ensure that any citizen can walk the streets of America with a firearm at their side, if they so wish to do so.

 

Americans don’t need more “Gun Free Zones”. They need to be left alone and allowed to “keep and bear arms” just as the Founders intended — in and outside their home and in public — and they need to be able to defend themselves and shoot back, if and when such a situation may arise. And then, not only would we see the Good Guys win more often, we would see many sad, tragic murders prevented.

 

Spouting BULLS**T that sounds exactly like some sort of strategic totalitarian philosophy, these politicians on both sides of the political aisle are poised to remove the only obstacle between United States citizens and globalism and the New World Order, since they and their predecessors have already greatly diminished the United States Constitution over the past seventy years or so.

 

McConnell, Schumer, Blumenthal, Pelosi and every God D**ned anti-American godless Commie self-made Son-of-a-Bitch running for the Democratic Party presidential nomination are now using the same bullshit and strategic totalitarianism that has been used for decades to create a generation or two of ill-informed, ignorant masses of people within the American culture, expand the federal and state government welfare programs and keep Americans in a perpetual psychotic state of discontent through Hollywood “elites” and the so-called “mainstream media” mental midgets. Americans have been persuaded to abandon their vigilance to the principles that made America exceptional from its inception.

 

The affirmation of rights derived from natural law, honesty, morality, self-reliance and equality of opportunity; in stark contrast and opposition to modern America’s identity politics, politically correct censorship and thought control, equality of outcomes, fiscal irresponsibility and unlimited government.

 

Is it any wonder that one would certainly look at these “leaders” new proposals with great suspicion? Now they once again demand the consent of the governed, the people’s consent, to willingly restrict our God Given and Constitutional Rights, on whose behalf. Doing so certainly doesn’t benefit me in any way, and it certainly will not make “The Children” any safer.

 

Take note that Benjamin Franklin stated: “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

 

Unfortunately, President Trump seems to be on board and supporting Red Flag Laws, even if he has walked back his support for federally legislated Red Flag Laws and suggested these were laws the states needed to address. Whichever the case that is closest to Trump’s true intent, Red Flag laws would allow just one neighbor to lodge an unsubstantiated complaint, that someone “might do something”, or to “see something” and “say something” that would enable law enforcement to confiscate all of one’s firearms, without any legal hearing whatsoever. Not only does this violate the Second and Fourth Amendments, it cancels any presumption of innocence and negates due process of the law.

 

Judge Andrew Napolitano is an expert on the U.S. Constitution, who has written nine books on the Constitution, and he phrased it succinctly and cogently:

 

” … Red Flag laws are unconstitutional. The presumption of innocence and the due process requirement of demonstrable fault as a precondition to any punishment or sanction together prohibit the loss of liberty on the basis of what might happen in the future.

 

In America, we do not punish a person or deprive anyone of liberty on the basis of a fear of what the person might do.

 

The government can no more interfere with the Second Amendment rights than it can infringe upon any other rights. If this were not so, then no liberty — speech, press, religion, association, self-defense, privacy, travel, property ownership — would be safe from the reach of a fearful majority.

 

That’s why we have a Constitution.”

 

Criminals don’t obey laws. Citizens don’t require further restrictions. Emotions don’t trump Constitutional Rights. Gun Free Zones aren’t safe. Federal and state Red Flag Laws don’t save lives. And the federal government doesn’t grant us our rights.

 

The astounding proposed and existing Red Flag Laws are merely one more warning sign, a gurgling gasp, in America’s desperate fight to ward off tyranny, representing the “final straw”. Any defeat along these lines means no Constitution, no United States, since they essentially break the social contract and the implied consent of the governed will have been torn asunder, by its own leadership and their inability to facilitate and promote the necessary elements for liberty, such as self-reliance, responsibility and morality. So long as such laws remain on the books and suppress our rights, politicians and all Americans will be less safe, and ultimately, historians and many Americans may look back on this moment and rightly view it as a time that Americans should have drawn a blood-red line in the sand.

 

At the core of these laws one finds only tyranny.

We The Subjects of Deep State Tyranny


John R. Houk

© February 20, 2018

 

Mat Staver has sent a combo email/fund raising alert to petition members of Congress to posthaste demand the Department of Justice investigate Obama Administration nefarious election practices and the Crooked Hillary Russian Collusion campaign before and after the election to take down President Trump.

 

There are three Fax petition links that require funding to send the faxes. And at the very end is a free petition link that Staver says will be delivered to Congress. If faxing is not exactly in your budget, HERE is the petition link up front. To sign the free petition you have to click link, but here is wording to which you are signing:

 

Tell Congress to INVESTIGATE CLINTON-FBI ANTI-TRUMP COLLUSION

 

YES!! I’m taking a stand to expose the FBI-Clinton corruption!

The Issue:

 

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

We are calling on officials of the United States Congress to investigate and initiate prosecution, if the evidence is clear. This is within their congressional responsibility.

 

Take Action…

 

If you AGREE that we must get to the bottom of this Clinton-FBI-Obama-DNC witch hunt against President Trump, then take TWO MINUTES right now to sign our “Investigate Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition.

 

No one is above the law! We demand accountability at every level of government, including holding Barack Obama and his inner circle accountable for their actions during and after their tenure in office.

 

Our Petition States:

 

As a concerned citizen, I am signing this petition calling on Congress and/or the Justice Department to establish an Independent Investigation into the actions of the FBI, the Obama White House, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the Hillary Clinton campaign related to collusion and corruption surrounding the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and campaign officials.

There is now a direct paper trail linking the DNC and the Clinton campaign to the so-called Steele dossier. Also, the release of the Nunes memo makes it clear that the FBI both operated in conjunction with Clinton/DNC operatives and withheld key information from the FISA court. This amounts to gross political corruption and the weaponizing of our government against Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s political opponents. An Independent Investigation must be launched!

THEN YOU SIGN IT!

 

In all honesty, an inundation of faxes to your Representative and Senators will draw attention because in November 2018 an election is coming up. Keep in mind the lying Dem machine will be in full swing to deflect from their criminal activities. Realize the deflection is a lie and get angry. Write letters to the Editor expressing displeasure. Inundate your social media platforms with your displeasure. And, if or when, is blocked or ignored, WRITE AGAIN!

 

Ultimately you are a voting citizen if you are eighteen or above by the November 2018 election. Show the propagandists you will NOT BE SILENCED at the ballot box.

 

Here is the reason the Mat Staver email should be acted upon from this quote:

 

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and certain Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

If any of these unconstitutional treasonous deeds go unanswered or President Trump somehow unconstitutionally removed, then it not only a coup against the Trump Administration but also a coup against the United States Constitution!

 

A Constitutional Coup renders this Preamble to an interesting footnote to history:

 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 

A Constitutional coup renders “We the People of the United States” to We the Subjects of a tyrannical government.

In case you missed my important weekend update… Hillary Clinton should go to jail for what we have recently learned. Barack Obama should be put under oath to find out “what he knew and when he knew it.” And the FBI swamp must be drained! Please see below and take action with me — Mat.

 

John [That is I, your Blog Editor],

I need your help to blow the lid off one of the biggest political scandals in our nation’s history. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

The FBI, the Clinton campaign, the Obama White House, and certain Democrat members of Congress appear to have been caught red-handed weaponizing federal agencies to attack the Trump campaign and presidency.

 

+ + How The Obama FBI Was “Weaponized” Against Trump

The recently released House GOP memo on the FBI confirms what we have been learning over several months: the FBI was “weaponized” against then-candidate Trump.

In summary, the memo confirms that the FBI and the DOJ abused their powers to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) warrant against former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page.

+ + Barack Obama Now Connected To FBI Cover-Up

Text messages between senior FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are blowing the lid off of a DOJ/FBI cover-up that likely extends to the Obama White House.

At the time, Strzok was heading up the Clinton email probe and Page was an FBI lawyer. Just two months prior to the election, Page wrote to Strzok about prepping then-FBI Director James Comey because…

 

“potus [President of the United States] wants to know everything we’re doing.”

 

By referencing President Obama, Page’s text raises the critical question: What did the President know and when did he know it? And here’s another question… Why was President Obama even in the loop?

+ + Paid For By Hillary, Implemented By Obama’s FBI

Michael Goodwin, writing in the New York Post, sums up the situation well:

 

“It increasingly appears that the [Hillary] Clinton machine was the secret, original source of virtually all the allegations about Trump and Russia that led to the FBI investigation…. [Clinton’s machine] paid for and created allegations against her Republican opponent, gave them to law enforcement, then tipped friendly media to the investigation…. In fact, the Clinton connections are so fundamental that there probably would not have been an FBI investigation without her involvement.”

 

One would expect this level of corruption to occur in a Banana Republic. Sad to say, it happened in America.

+ + Tell Congress to INVESTIGATE THE CLINTON-FBI ANTI-TRUMP COLLUSION [Fund Raising Fax Link]
I have instructed my Liberty Counsel Action team to spearhead efforts calling for an Independent Investigation into this entire sordid FBI campaign against President Trump.

If you AGREE that we must get to the bottom of this Clinton-FBI-Obama-DNC witch hunt against President Trump, then click here right now to automatically sign our “Investigate the Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

This is one of the worst political scandals in American history. We have a presidential candidate (Hillary Clinton) FUNDING fabricated unsubstantiated research against her opponent, which became the basis of an FBI investigation against President Trump. And President Obama wanted “to know everything,” according to an FBI staffer. But if we do not take action, there will be no accountability!

Please… click here to automatically sign the “Investigate Clinton-FBI Anti-Trump Collusion” petition so my representatives in D.C. can personally take these petitions to key leaders on Capitol Hill. [Fund Raising Fax Link]

Thank you for joining us in this bold initiative!

Mat

Disagreement on Conspiracy Theory Pt 2


John R. Houk

© April 22, 2017

 

This is the post that follows Part One of “Disagreement on Conspiracy Theory”. Here is an intro excerpt to provide an idea of the theme for those who haven’t read Part One:

 

… Yurki has sent a lengthy comment that demonstrates agreement with another NCCR commenter using the moniker Futuret. Futuret leans more on the validity of some of the Conspiracy Theories than I do.

 

There are many Conspiracy Theories I concur with, yet many are simply beyond the believability scale especially when I know some facts that contradict a Conspiracy Theory accepted by way too many people.

 

 

… I am disagreeing much of Yurki’s comment to Futuret by answering the premises of the links and comments he has produced demonstrating agreement to the Political Vel Craft link that pushes the theory that the Chemical attack on Khan Shaykhun perpetrated by Bashar al-Assad … was a false flag perpetrated by Trump Administration.

 

This time my comments will be in bold text from this point on. Yurki’s text will be as he wrote except for quotes which will be indented.

‘..And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years..’

 

– Revelations 20:4

 

I can’t argue with the Word of God, right? When the Lord Jesus returns in power, He will bring the final test of humanity inaugurating the Thousand Year Reign at the end of which Satan will be released from his chains for the final test of humanity.

 

https://shariaunveiled.wordpress.com/2013/06/19/why-did-the-u-s-government-recently-purchase-30000-guillotines/

 

I thought maybe the link above was related to the quote below. It is not. I believe Yurki is refencing the Revelations 20:4 quote above. The Sharia Unveiled link is an article wondering why the U.S. government procured 30,000 guillotines.

 

I believe the point Yurki is making has to do with the Tribulation period that occurs prior to the Thousand Year Reign of Christ. During the Trib period those caught be Satan’s government that refused the mark of the beast were executed by losing their heads. Popular modern interpretations of this future execution was by using a guillotine.

 

In the Sharia Unveiled article there are three bullet points which are followed by the Rev. 20:4 quote.

 

– The use of guillotines for “governmental purposes” was lobbied for and passed in the U.S. Congress

 

– The information we received is that 15,000 are currently stored  in Georgia and 15,000 in Montana

 

– Are the beheadings by muslims today meant to condition and desensitize us against U.S. Government beheadings in the future?

 

‘..And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years..’

One question to consider:

 

If Georgia was planning to utilize guillotines as a method of execution, how could this be carried out without purchasing guillotines?

Snopes (which is a Left orient fact checker) says the 30,000 guillotines story is false:

 

CLAIM:   The U.S. government has purchased a stockpile of 30,000 guillotines.

 

FALSE

 

 

In fact, Congress passed no such authorization (for the types of guillotines used for chopping off heads, anyway — smaller guillotines are used for mundane tasks such as trimming paper), and rumors about the military’s supposed stockpiling of guillotines for use after a declaration of martial law (in furtherance of a New World Order conspiracy) are nothing new — they’ve been around since at least as far back as the George W. Bush administration in mid-2008. This is the same old junk in a different package.

 

An indication of the credibility of this form of rumor can be gauged by noting that the illustration used to accompany its most recent outbreak isn’t a photograph of a real guillotine at all, but rather a picture of a satirical “Chanel guillotine” sculpture by artist Tom Sachs.

[Addendum by Mick for one-post visitors]:

Basically the debunk for this is that there is absolutely zero evidence besides various versions of the same story on the internet. It’s just an urban legend that has been around since the 1990s. Here’s an example from 1997:
http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/revalation_prophecy.htm READ ENTIRETY (Debunked: Government buys 30,000 guillotines; Metabunk; 6/19/13)

 

AND here is a well-reasoned article by Jack Mullen looking into the 30,000 guillotines and the retired FBI Agent Ted Gunderson that still includes a bit of a warning about government tyranny. I enjoyed this article because there is a clear distinguishing from unreasonable conspiracies and conclusions based on logical observation:

 

 

Over the past several years a growing number of stories refer to guillotines being seen at military bases and prisons and stories of guillotines replacing the electric chair in Georgia for use in corporal punishment. These stories are bubbling into the consciousness of Americans coincident with the transformation of the United States from a nation of Law to a nation of men and lawlessness.

 

Concern about guillotines is not a new topic on the Internet; articles concerning the subject go back to at least the mid nineties. One of the earlier concerns about guillotines was raised back in 1995 when Georgia State representative Doug Teper introduced a bill into the 1995-96 Georgia Legislative session under the heading of HB 1274.

 

The purpose of the bill was to:

 

To amend Article 2 of Chapter 10 of Title 17 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to the death penalty generally, so as to provide a statement of legislative policy; to provide for death by guillotine; to provide for applicability; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes. [1]

 

Recently this bill has been mentioned in the context of continuing reports of guillotines being seen on military bases, in railroad cars, and even outside of newly created secret prisons. The Georgia bill, however, was not passed in the form written above and according to the site deathpenaltyinfo.org, the only method of execution in Georgia is lethal injection. [2] As of now, I can find no information showing Georgia reconsidering the guillotine as a replacement for the current system of execution.

 

The resurfacing of this 1995 Georgia Legislative Bill is misinformation at time when real information is desperately needed.

 

Further interest in guillotines was ignited when the Southern Poverty Law Center apparently created a story stating whistleblower, and retired FBI agent, Ted Gunderson made a speech in 2009 to militia groups in Florida saying the Federal Government had 30,000 guillotines in stock and ready for deployment in Georgia.

 

A Tale of Two Gundersons

 

An alarming report was purportedly made by retired FBI agent Ted Gunderson in 2009 regarding the stockpiling of guillotines for use after civil unrest results in large numbers of arrests funneled to newly created FEMA camps. This report is one of the primary supporting pillars of information about guillotines in the alternative news cloud. The problem with this report is it appears to be made up. The origin of the report finds it way back not to Ted Gunderson, but to a comment made by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a group notorious for starting false rumors regarding patriot and militia paranoia. The late Ted Gunderson apparently published no information or articles regarding this information that I can find on the web or from his archived website here:

 

http://web.archive.org/web/20110326201213/http://www.tedgunderson.net/

 

Even if there were actually evidence that Gunderson did mention guillotines to a patriot group in Florida, Gunderson was long associated with fringe and many times evidence challenged reports during the course of his post FBI investigations. His statement alone would not be enough to conclude guillotines were being stockpiled.

 

Another report referenced in guillotine articles is a story covered by Pamela Rae Schuffert, at the American Holocaust Coming blog, regarding railroad cars with shackles being manufactured by Gunderson Steel Fabrications of Portland Oregon. Now called Gunderson LLC this railroad car manufacturer is part of a corporate conglomerate called the Greenbrier Companies. Not just boxcars with shackles, Gunderson is also said to manufacture guillotines in other articles derived from the boxcar story.

 

It is very interesting that two of the primary pieces of information regarding guillotines in America come from Ted Gunderson, former FBI agent, and Gunderson LLC, manufacturer of railroad cars and other transportation related products and machines. As far as I can tell, Ted Gunderson and Gunderson LLC are not affiliated.

 

 

Inside Sources

 

Many guillotine articles popping up on various websites such as beforeitsnews.com describe guillotines being seen by military insiders and sources wishing to remain anonymous. These articles talk about the militarys training on the use of the guillotine and how insiders discovered guillotines packaged and stockpiled on military bases.

 

The problem with these stories: a lack of evidence and the reliance on anonymous insiders as the source of the information. A quick search at beforeitsnews.com for articles about guillotines will generate a dozen articles featuring anecdotal information involving inside sources and references to Ted Gunderson and the Gunderson boxcar stories.

 

A recent article at the commonsenseshow.com also references Ted Gunderson, the Georgia legislation bill and inside sources. Again, nothing of substance to actually support any facts regarding real guillotines found or in use.

 

It is not unreasonable to fear the government of United States; there are many real indications the Federal Government is gearing to take some kind of action against Citizens, including building of apparent prison camps, stockpiling of ammunition, acquisition of armored vehicles, increasing numbers of armed agencies and more. Mass extermination is the signature trait of authoritarian rule.

 

According to a report by Larry Grathwohl, former FBI agent, The Obama linked Weather Underground Organization planned, in the 1970s, to incarcerate up to 50 million Americans with exigency plans to exterminate roughly half of that group. It is easy to visualize the highly efficient guillotine as a method whereby masses of people might be exterminated. Also, the real evidence of FEMA camps being constructed in the fashion of prisons camps around the country also lends emotional support to this idea.

 

One argument for the use of guillotines is based on the idea that after decapitation, the body remains intact for organ harvesting and other uses. Another argument is the intense fear and visual horror resulting from use of such medieval style execution. Imagine the fear resulting as a mass extermination via the guillotine is transmitted via television, video and the Internet around the world.

 

But, except in limited uses, I would argue mass extermination can and, if attempted, will be carried out easier, faster, and with much less work and human involvement using traditional means. The Soviet model of working people to death for example or the Nazi model of mass shootings and gassings. Perhaps a truly modern rendition of the Nazi model using bio-weapons that can kill tens of thousands of people in a matter of hours days or weeks.

 

As Americans wake up to the fact their Liberty and Justice has been taken away by a global oligarchy of corporate and banking interests intent on creating a one world government, it is easy to lose site of important issues that must be addressed if this plan is to be stopped. Focusing on guillotines and the fear created by these ideas is a way to distract people from the important work that must be done.

 

As this country falls deeper into a fully evolving tyranny, fear management will be of the utmost importance.

 

Plans are nothing, Planning is Everything Dwight D. Eisenhower

 

Americans have got to take back their local and regional governments and finally State governments. Downsizing these self important, self organizing, useless, lawless consumers of resources and lives should be among the highest priority.

Below is a Zero Hedge article critical of the existence of the U.S. Federal Reserve. This is a Conspiracy that I am absolutely on board with. So read and realize The Fed is an extra-constitutional organization that indeed can contribute to political tyranny in the USA.

 

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-06-10/guess-how-many-nations-world-do-not-have-central-bank

 

– In the United States, we are told that we have a free market system. But in a true free market system, market forces would determine what interest rates are. We wouldn’t need anyone to “set interest rates” for us.

 

And why have we given a private banking cartel (the Federal Reserve) the authority to create and manage our money supply? The U.S. Constitution specifically delegates that authority to Congress.

 

It is not as if we actually need the Federal Reserve. In fact, the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history happened during the decades before the Federal Reserve was created.

 

Unfortunately, a little over 100 years ago our leaders decided that it would be best to turn over our financial future to a newly created private banking cartel that was designed by very powerful Wall Street interests. Since that time, the value of our currency has diminished by more than 96 percent and our national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger.

 

But despite all of the problems, the vast majority of Democrats and the vast majority of Republicans are not even willing to consider slightly curtailing the immense power of the Federal Reserve. And the idea of getting rid of the Fed altogether is tantamount to blasphemy to most of our politicians.

 

Of course the same thing is true all over the planet. Central banks are truly “the untouchables” of the modern world. Even though everybody can see what they are doing, there has not been a single successful political movement anywhere on the globe (that I know about) to shut a central bank down.

 

Instead, in recent years we have just seen the reach of central banking just continue to expand. – READ ENTIRETY (Guess How Many Nations In The World Do Not Have A Central Bank? By Tyler Durden; Zero Hedge; 6/10/15 6:00 PM)

The Rape of Lady Justice


Blind Justice Raped

Justin Smith expresses the same outrage every American should feel that Director Comey, AG Loretta Lynch and the Obama Administration is not going to make any effort whatsoever to prosecute Crooked Hillary:

 

Everyone is “innocent until proven guilty” in America, but the evidence in Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of information is so overwhelming that it leaves no doubt that she is guilty on several levels. This is the reason that Director Comey’s recommendation that she not be prosecuted was so shocking to so many Americans; it is unfathomable that this case was not at the very least presented to a Grand Jury for inspection. –Justin O. Smith

The Rape of Lady Justice

The Day the Rule of Law Died

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent July 9, 2016 2:03 PM

 

The rule of law died on July 5th and the tide turned against freedom in America, after FBI Director James Comey delivered the news that Hillary Clinton, a crooked, corrupt and accomplished liar, would not face charges for her criminal mishandling of top secret information. This day will be marked in infamy in the annals of American history as the day that Comey, Loretta Lynch and Obama, who all swore oaths to uphold justice, worked to annihilate justice and limit and destroy rights. Their actions to this point and after the fact remove all doubt that one standard of law does in fact exist for the political aristocracy and another standard of law applies to the average, common U.S. citizen, as this administration pushes America down the dark path of tyranny.

 

Coincidences of the magnitude of Bill Clinton’s and Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s “chance” meeting on the tarmac of a Phoenix airport in late June are no coincidence at all, especially once one discovers the July 3rd New York Times story that revealedMrs. Clinton … may decide to retain Ms. Lynch, the nation’s first black woman to be attorney general“. This story confirmed to Lynch that her message had been received by Hillary’s staff. A pact — a collusion and a conspiracy — was shaped: No indictment in return for reappointment.

 

Comey outlined the facts that 110 emails in 52 email chains contained classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained top secret information, at the time they were sent, thirty-six contained secret information and eight other email chains contained confidential information at the time.

 

Now, at the very least, America understands that Hillary Clinton lied last July, when she confidently claimed “I never sent or received any information that was classified at the time it was sent or received.” This one statement supports a charge under 18 U.S.C. 1001.

 

So why wasn’t Hillary interviewed under oath by the FBI? And why wasn’t Clinton’s testimony recorded?

 

After thousands of investigative hours and more than a year it came down to Comey stating: “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgement is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before deciding whether to bring charges.”

 

Really? This appears to have great potential to be prosecuted, unless one has been bought or intimidated away.

 

Comey said that he and his team “cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.” This does not have the ring of truth for several reasons.

 

The Obama administration has prosecuted more leakers of information under the 1917 Espionage Act than all prior administrations combined, with five subsequently sent to prison. Secrecy in D.C. is such that the slightest mishandling or disclosure can result in a felony charge and months or years of prison. Stephen Kim was sentenced to 13 months in prison for speaking with reporter James Rosen on “sensitive” information about North Korea, most of which was already released in several news sources. If one is sufficiently important in D.C., as in the cases concerning Leon Panetta and David Petraeus, they are usually spared and let off with the lightest of consequences, while powerless nobodies without any intent to leak or mishandle information face criminal prosecution, career destruction and the permanent loss of security clearance.

 

A Naval investigation into Bryan Nishimura’s 2007-2008 service in Afghanistan revealed that he did not intend to distribute classified information to unauthorized personnel. He had downloaded and carried classified materials on his “personal, unclassified electronic devices and storage media”. Upon his return to the U.S., he continued to maintain this information at several unauthorized locations and on several unclassified systems, which resulted in his prosecution, two years of probation and a $7500 fine.

 

If someone, who was obscure and unimportant and powerless, recklessly and secretly used a shoddy home server, as well as several other unsecured servers, to work with Top Secret information in the same manner that Hillary Clinton did, they would have been criminally charged and placed under the jail long ago. This was all criminal behavior, as Huma Abedin’s recent sworn testimony before Congress has shown.

 

Comey tried to give Clinton a pass by suggesting she didn’t have the requisite intent, but the law doesn’t require intent. The law requires merely “gross negligence” under 18 U.S.C. 793, which, among other things, makes it a federal crime punishable by 10 years in prison, for any official entrusted with classified information relating to national defense to “permit … the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted or destroyed” — all of which Hillary Clinton did.

 

And the Far Left, those like Representatives Elijah Cummings and Nancy Pelosi, are celebrating this recent obstruction of justice. Obama too made it clear he was Hillary’s Black Knight and protector, as he gave her use of Air Force One at the expense of the American people. He took her to her North Carolina campaign event, where they both laughed and smiled like pumpkin-eating possums, as she gave her speech behind the presidential seal.

 

The Obama administration and an entire segment of U.S. society, millions of people, are turning a blind eye to this travesty of justice, acting as if it’s nothing. They are offering an immoral defense of Hillary Clinton — an elitist, oligarchic ideologue and a smug sociopath — who was a treacherous Secretary of State, responsible for the murders of four fine Americans at Benghazi, and who lied repeatedly about compromising U.S. secrets.

 

Unless Americans are willing to submit to the arbitrary whims of rulers for generations to come, we must stop this rape of Lady Justice and free Her from the chains imposed by the FBI and the Department of Justice, which have been corrupted by Obama and Hillary. This administration became illegitimate the second it stopped operating through just and impartial laws, applied equally to everyone in society, including its own. This dark course towards systemic privilege and a different application of the “law” between the powerful and the powerless must never become common place in America. Stopping Hillary’s ascent to the presidency will stop our slow slide towards such tyranny, and prosecuting her, no matter how long it takes, will stop Lady Justice’s outraged screams and start the healing of America’s soul.

America Rising


It is gratifying there are Patriots in America displeased with an unconstitutional SCOTUS. Justin Smiths shares some thoughts on the Obamacare subsidy ruling and the Same-Sex Marriage ruling.

America Rising

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 6/27/2015 9:30 PM

“The Liberties of Our Country … are worth defending at all hazards … We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors … purchased … with toil … and expense of treasure and blood. — It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation … if we should … be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.” – Samuel Adams

Two-hundred and thirty-nine years of freedom and liberty and the American Heritage, as that “shining city on the hill,” a beacon and a place of safety for all peoples that offers a glimmer of hope for a better future and a better tomorrow, are coming to a grinding halt. With Congress moving America towards transnational fascism (TPA) and the Supreme Court acting in a lawless fashion concerning Obamacare – King v. Burwell – and the issue of same-sex marriage, the “land of liberty” is facing the greatest challenges of its entire history.

The majority of Americans stand for American interests to be first and foremost in our foreign policies, and we oppose globalism. We believe this country has the right and obligation to secure Her borders, Her sacred Heritage and Her values. And we believe in a small constrained federal government, with its inevitable corruption confined within the limited role set for it by the Founding Fathers.

When the Supreme Court can arbitrarily decide to provide alternative and false meanings to words written and passed by our elected representatives and ignore other laws, in order to align with the goals and agendas of whoever happens to be in power, we are on the road to tyranny, like it or not.

As noted on June 25th by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia _ a true Son of Liberty:

(On Obamacare) “We should start calling this SCOTUSCare … this Court’s two decisions on the Act will surely be remembered through the years. The summersaults of statutory interpretation they have performed (‘penalty’ means tax … ‘established by the State’ means not established by the State) will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence.”

On June 26th Scalia stated his concerns regarding the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision removing state bans on homosexual/gay marriage:

“I write separately to call attention to this Court’s threat to American democracy … Today’s decree says that … the ruler of 320 million Americans coast to coast is a majority of nine lawyers on the Supreme Court.”

In Katie Pavlich’s Gay Marriage is a Constitutional Right, the observation is made that Chief Justice John Roberts’ accusation that the Court acted “out of preference” is “an interesting description considering he did the same thing on King v. Burwell.”

Former Governor Mike Huckabee’s assessment on this egregious mess coincides with Chief Justice Roberts’ dissent. Huckabee said: “They [the Justices] didn’t rule on any existing law. They simply redefined marriage”; and Roberts stated: “The majority’s decision was an act of will, not legal judgment. The right it announces has no basis in the Constitution or this Court’s precedent.”

Marriage defined as a union between one man and one woman is a part of America’s core traditional value system. Our ancestors were mostly Christian, and, as such, the majority of Americans have understood marriage as set forth in the Bible. They also hold fast to God’s commandment in Leviticus 18:22 _ “Man shall not lie with man as with woman; it is an abomination.”

The Court’s ruling on homosexual marriage is nothing less than an attempt to force Christianity out of America’s public square and underground, as the Far Left moves to culturally transform America. Chief Justice Roberts pointedly observed: “As a result the Court invalidates the marriage laws of more than half the states and orders the transformation of a social institution that has formed the basis of human society for millennia, for the Kalahari Bushmen and the Han Chinese, the Carthaginians and the Aztecs. Just who do we think we are?”

All of these disgusting anti-liberty, anti-American developments moves me to tell the fascist Progressives of both parties “You don’t belong here.” Go find a place where the people welcome the idea of a permanent ruling class. There are plenty of them out there, but it’s not here.

Take your tools in the press, your sycophant followers, the poltroons and quislings, your socialist pipedreams and your Hell called “Utopia”. Take your self-serving transnational vision of one borderless world, united under your thumb. That might be fine for others, but it’s not for the Sons and Daughters of Liberty still living in America.

Whatever the motives of Obama and the five Progressive activist Justices, America cannot allow itself to be dragged down into the dung heap of totalitarianism, as a result of the majority’s misapplication of clauses like “due process”, aimed at affording substantive rights at the expense of ‘liberty’ and through a distortion of the principles on which this Nation was founded. Our path can only be up to man’s age-old dream and the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order.

The sole thing tyranny fears is the truth, and therein lies a sworn mission for each of us. All who believe in liberty must do everything to convince their fellow Americans of the importance of a conservative path towards freedom. Tell the truth to the good people of the United States, and through that revelation, restore America to the greatness She was founded to attain.

There is a God, and this God of all Creation would prefer us to be free. That means He must love this country, not so much for what we’ve allowed it to become, but deeply for what it was once meant to be.

However, there is a never ending war being waged for the heart of America — because true Evil cannot be stopped and the truly Good will not be moved. [This] is a battle that must be won or lost every day, by one side or the other, and no less than the fate of free mankind hangs in the balance.

The outcome may still be in question, but I know where I stand. To those yet undecided, there’s a place here beside me or out there against me, once you’re moved to make up your mind.

Rise up America and let Liberty’s dimmed light once more burn bright. It awaits an awakening, so this one nation and the love of true Liberty at its heart can be restored to Her old glory. America demands much of those that hear the call, and the first hard thing it asks is courage.

Federal Communications Commission is going to vote on it February 26th. That’s why I am writing you today–I need your help to stop this.

President Obama came out a few weeks ago urging the FCC to vote to regulate the Internet the same way that it regulates public utilities under Title II. What this means is that, for the first time, billions of dollars in fees will be attached to Internet service just like they are to telephone service.

You see, under Title II if someone wants to own a telephone company, there are fees baked into the law–fees companies pass on to customers.

Now, under this new regulatory regime, Internet service providers will be subject to these fees as well, and then pass them on to you, the consumer.

This is essentially a massive tax increase on the middle class, being passed in the dead of night without the American public really being made aware of what is going on.

The Internet is built on speed and dynamism, it’s always changing, there are always new and better ideas that are exploding onto the scene, and part of the reason for that is that innovators are not having to go ask Washington, DC for permission every time they want to do something new.

What this really comes down to is a fundamental question:

 
Who do you want in charge of the direction of the Internet: people at dot-com startups that brought us game changing companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon and Uber; or nameless, faceless, unelected bureaucrats in our nation’s capital?
 
There is another aspect of this that gets overlooked: the Internet is an incredibly important force for freedom, for liberty, and the rights of free speech that we hold dear. It is an existential threat to tyrants in countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Russia who seek to keep information from their people.

We must preserve the high ground for the United States to stand up to these countries and tell them to keep the Internet free and preserve free speech on the Internet throughout the world. We cannot do that if we are regulating the Internet in a similar manner ourselves.

I am not accusing anyone of sinister motives here, but I am deeply concerned about the idea of any government bureaucrat having the power to tell companies what they can and cannot do. In the long term, this could have a chilling effect on political speech, in ways that today we could not even begin to imagine.

We do not have much time left to stop this gigantic government takeover of the Internet. The FCC is voting on February 26th and the Left is mobilizing to support their effort to do so. We cannot let the conversation be totally one-sided. The FCC needs to hear from us today–not tomorrow or next week or next month. Today.


Please join me and go sign the petition to keep the Internet free. We must stand for liberty and preserve the Internet free of government interference.

Thank you for standing for Internet freedom.

Sincerely,

Senator Mike Lee

IRS has become Political Abusive Attack Dog


BHO Fake Outrage toon

The 16th Amendment legitimizes the existence of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

 

Amendment XVI

 

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

 

Your donation matters.

 

Taxing Power

Taxable Income (16th Amendment; Legal Information Institute (LII) – Cornell University Law School)

 

HOWEVER, the 16th Amendment does not overrule the Bill of Rights (1st ten Amendments to Constitution) pertaining to the Civil Rights and Liberty guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. And yet the IRS has mysteriously acquired the authority to seize property and bank accounts with the presumption of guilt BEFORE a criminal trial.

 

My son sent me a Daily Caller news story that focuses on small business owner Carole Hinders. Ms. Hinders has made the news ironically largely due to a NY Times articles about her and other small business owners being assaulted by the IRS without actual proof the law is being broken. Between yesterday and today Carole Hinders’ story his hit web in a huge way. The irony is all the sides of the political spectrum are displaying outrage over the abuse of power being exercised by the IRS. Could it be that Leftists and Conservatives can join forces over a constitutional issue affecting American citizens?

Carole Hinders has worked hard at her family-owned restaurant, Mrs. Lady’s Mexican Food, for 38 years. The federal government took her entire bank account using civil forfeiture, even though she did nothing wrong. Now, they are refusing to return her money, so Carole and the Institute for Justice have teamed up to fight back.

http://www.endforfeiture.com

 

Perhaps Congress can wise up and use this unified voter outrage to take some immediate legislative action to curb the power of the IRS. If Congress can enact a statesman form a legislative action pertaining to the IRS, you must realize it would only be a temporary fix. Most prominently these days the IRS is a political tool used by Obama against Conservative opponents, however there are more than one Federal agency that uses a law that has to be unconstitutional. State and Federal law enforcement ALSO utilize the Civil Asset Forfeiture law to seize property and money from American citizens. The thing is the public has looked the other way with government seizures because it is the primary weapon of law enforcement to pin down real criminals especially the kind that has built a criminal empire. Who can be unhappy about taking down criminals, right?

 

The thing is citizens like Carole Hinders or even those that have property that stifles the agenda of local, State or Federal authorities can have their property seized. WITHOUT A TRIAL!

 

As Americans on a grassroots level we have to figure out the legalese that protects law-abiding citizens while at the same go after moneyed criminals that break the law pretending to be law-abiding citizens.

 

The website End Civil Forfeiture explains the history of this practice in the USA and how State and Federal government have exploited this beyond the scope of the U. S. Constitution:

 

Civil forfeiture—where the government can take and sell your property without ever convicting or even charging you with a crime—is one of the greatest threats to property rights in the nation today. Civil forfeiture cases proceed against one’s cash, cars, or home, which means that property owners receive few if any of the protections that criminal defendants enjoy.   To make matters worse, when law-enforcement agencies take and sell your property, they frequently get to keep all the proceeds for their own use. This gives agencies a direct financial incentive to “police for profit” by seizing and forfeiting as much property as possible.

 

 

Although the Founders didn’t believe in this superstition, they used civil forfeiture as a way to enforce the collection of customs duties, which provided 80 to 90 percent of the federal revenue during that time. The government often could not try owners of smuggling ships themselves (often because they were overseas), and so civil forfeiture let officials seize their ships and cargo as a second-best option.

 

With minor exceptions during the Civil War and Prohibition, civil forfeiture remained a legal backwater. But as the War on drugs heated up during the early 1980s, so too did civil forfeiture. A key legal change occurred in 1984 when Congress established the Assets Forfeiture Fund. Previously, all federal civil forfeiture revenues were deposited into the government’s general fund. But after the 1984 amendments, federal agencies could retain and spend forfeiture proceeds—subject only to very loose restrictions—giving them a direct financial stake in generating forfeiture funds.  Similar amendments now allow law enforcement agencies in 42 states to keep and use some or all of the civil forfeiture proceeds they seize.

 

“Policing for Profit” Creates Incentives for Abuse

 

The changes at the federal and state levels led to an explosion of forfeiture activity. Because in most jurisdictions law enforcement can keep some or all of the proceeds from civil forfeiture, they have an incentive to seize and keep as much property as possible. …

 

… Here are four ways that civil forfeiture stacks the deck against property owners:

 

·         Burden of Proof: For the government to keep your property using civil forfeiture, it must prove that the property is connected to criminal activity.  But where criminal forfeiture requires the government to prove guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt,” under civil-forfeiture cases the government can prevail under much less rigorous standards.

 

·         Guilty Until Proven Innocent: Although many jurisdictions provide an “innocent-owner” defense that allows owners to get their property back if they had no idea that it was involved in a crime, most jurisdictions presume, however, that owners are guilty and force them to prove their innocence.

 

·         Legal Representation: Anyone who has watched a crime drama knows that the government must provide criminal defendants with an attorney if they cannot afford one. But civil forfeiture victims must either pay for a lawyer—which in many cases can cost more than the seized property is worth—or go it alone.

 

·         “Equitable” Sharing: Federal law provides a loophole called “equitable sharing” to law enforcement in states with good civil forfeiture laws.  This program allows state law enforcement to turn seized assets over to the federal government, which forfeits the property under federal law.  In turn, the feds give up to 80 percent of the forfeited property back to the state agency for its own use, even if state law would have required those proceeds to go into a general fund.

 

READ ENTIRETY (Civil Forfeiture: A Threat to Private Property and the Impartial Pursuit of Justice; By End Civil Forfeiture)

 

The only way I see to change all the law – civil and criminal – to protect the individual rights of law-abiding citizens is to amend the Constitution. I don’t care how much Leftists and Conservatives can agree on reforming the powers of the IRS, you know one day a President will come along to push the envelope of the Constitution citing case law to warp the legalese to go after political opponents. You do realize it won’t matter if that President is a Democrat or a Republican or the emergence of a Third Party to attain the White House, the legalese will be abused.

 

Unfortunately on a Federal level this nation’s governance is way too polarized to effect a Constitutional Amendment to change the definition and application of Civil Asset Forfeiture laws that protects the Rights and Liberty of law-abiding citizens as opposed to moneyed criminals. The only way to amend the Constitution via by-passing Congress is in the Constitution but in the 225 years our Founding document has been the foundation of America’s rule of law the by-pass Congress method to amend the Constitution has never taken place. Why?

 

The reason is political fear. No one active in government seriously thought of the ‘by-pass Congress’ method of amending the Constitution until the 20th century when political polarization seemed to become a hindrance to good governance. The method of offering an Amendment apart from Congress can be accomplish directly by the several States calling for a Constitution Convention. Neither the President, Congress nor the Judicial Branch can nullify or prevent such a convention from occurring. It would be the call of a majority of States. The fear is that a convention to amend the Constitution would evolve beyond the intentions of the reason the States called for it. The very real fear – both Leftist and Conservative – is a Constitutional Convention could take it upon itself to scrap the entire current Constitution. The fear is the potential for a Leftist vision or a Conservative vision to become the rule of law to the detriment of the losing side of the political spectrum.

 

I personally have wavered back and forth on the pluses and minuses of a Constitutional Convention. BUT NOW with the abuses of the IRS simply becoming way too egregious, something must be done. The best thing would be to scrap the whole current tax system developing a new paradigm whether it is income or National sales tax or a combination of both to be fair to the taxpayers while also still have the ability to go after the moneyed criminals of whatever kind of organized crime network might exist (violent criminals or white collar criminals). And whatever that standard is should be applied equally criminally and civilly according to the Fourth Amendment.

 

Amendment IV

 

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. (Fourth Amendment; Legal Information Institute (LII) – Cornell University Law School)

 

On a personal level I don’t feel comfortable to suggest a different tax system to shoot for. My primary concern here is the abuse of government power on the Civil Rights and Liberty of American citizens. The very reason and cause of the American Revolutionary War in which the British citizens of America’s Thirteen Colonies felt abused by unjust taxation, improper representation and the abuse of government authority.

 

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.

 

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their CREATOR, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. READ THE REST (In Congress, July 4, 1776. The unanimous declaration of the thirteen United States of America; by the signing delegates and penned by Thomas Jefferson; Library of Congress)

 

TODAY I feel like the risk is necessary for the USA to have a Constitutional Convention. The Federal government cannot be trusted for a long term reform eliminating the IRS as a political attack dog of whatever political party. Just like the Founding Fathers felt a risk was necessary to throw off the bonds of an abusive government, it has become necessary to throw off the bonds of a politically oriented tax agency as well as other Federal agencies that have gone beyond bounds of the guaranteed Liberty of the Bill of Rights.

 

Citizens concerned for the future of their country, under a federal government that’s increasingly bloated, corrupt, reckless and invasive, have a constitutional option. We can call a Convention of States to return the country to its original vision of a limited federal government that is of, by and for the people. (Convention of States: This One Amendment Could Solve Forty-Five Problems; By Steve Robinson; The Maine Wire; 7/15/14)

 

Article Five of the U.S. Constitution enumerates the two ways to amend the Constitution:

 

Article V

 

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate. (The Constitution of the United States – Article V; National ArchivesFederal Register)

 

Our current tax system is a progressive income tax:

 

A progressive tax structure is one in which an individual or family’s tax liability as a fraction of income rises with income. If, for example, taxes for a family with an income of $20,000 are 20 percent of income and taxes for a family with an income of $200,000 are 30 percent of income, then the tax structure over that range of incomes is progressive. One tax structure is more progressive than another if its average tax rate rises more rapidly with income. (Progressive Taxes; By Joel B. Slemrod; Library of Economics and Liberty)

 

DEFINITION OF ‘PROGRESSIVE TAX’

 

A tax that takes a larger percentage from the income of high-income earners than it does from low-income individuals. The United States income tax is considered progressive: in 2010, individuals who earned up to $8,375 fell into the 10% tax bracket, while individuals earning $373,650 or more fell into the 35% tax bracket. Basically, taxpayers are broken down into categories based on taxable income; the more one earns, the more taxes they will have to pay once they cross the benchmark cut-off points between the different tax bracket levels.

 

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS ‘PROGRESSIVE TAX’

 

The U.S. progressive income tax is effectively a means of income redistribution. Individuals who earn more pay higher taxes; those taxes are then used to fund social welfare programs that are used primarily by individuals who earn less. Critics of the progressive tax consider it to be discriminatory and believe that a flat tax system, which imposes the same tax on everyone regardless of income, is a fairer method of taxation. (Progressive Tax; Investopedia)

 

Yup, IRS/Progressive Tax is evil. If small potatoes like me has to hire a tax service to figure out the complications of owing or receiving refund then it is evil. How do we replace the evil IRS? The suggestions I have read are the flat tax, fair tax, National Sales Tax or some kind of combination.

 

According to my search engine perusals it appears the Fair Tax seems to be the current favorite tax to terminate the IRS and end political head hunting. I personally see how the Fair Tax (which is actually a national sales tax) looks good on paper; however if things go south versions of the Fair Tax shows sales tax climbing anywhere from 50% to 70% of purchase or service to keep sufficient revenue flowing. Fair Tax proponents tell you the rate is 23% if everything goes as foreseen with a monthly prebate of cash from the government for families that make less than the poverty line in income. The prebate for a family of four below the poverty line utilizing the 23% sales tax rate would receive a monthly government check of $1,983.33 for an annual total of $23,800. Like I said that sounds favorable to me; however if the revenue collection does not complete the Federal budget, does anyone think the sales tax rate will remain at 23%?

 

The Flat Tax still sounds attractive to me. The first problem of a Flat Tax is an agency still has to be around to administer collection of the tax. My God, that agency CANNOT be the same bureaucracy of the Internal Revenue Service. Its management has become politically corrupt that bad things undoubtedly continue to occur. The management level portions of the current IRS must be jettisoned and a whole new agency created under strict guidelines that insures the enforcement of the Bill of Rights in the new tax agency’s collection methods.

 

However in full disclosure Fair Tax proponents do have problems with the Flat Tax. For one thing the politicians are looking for a Flat Tax rate that actually mind cause discomfort for poor to moderate income families while the more wealthy tax payers will jump for glee. I currently fit into the poor to moderate category that would feel a squeeze from higher taxes. On the other hand I also realize across the board less of a tax strain on higher wage earners to wealthy people will release entrepreneurial development that will result in better jobs, more available spendable money and hence a better economy which will also translate into more tax revenue without putting the bite on all Americans.

 

So here are website article with Flat Tax and Fair Tax plusses and minuses leaning to favoring one or the other (in no particular order):

A Constitutional Convention needs to restore Liberty as well as narrowly define the duty of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches to uphold restored and defined Liberty. Here’s part the Leftists will become apoplectic about: A Constitutional Convention needs to simultaneously protect Religious Freedom and NOT prevent religion from being a moral advocate politically to influence government. At the same time government specifically be defined as not involving or inserting itself on how a religion involves itself in politics UNLESS that religion’s specific purpose is to terminate the Constitution, overthrow the government and end the Liberty of the Bill of Rights. Separation of Church and State is a one-way street and not a two-way street. No government in religion but lots of religion as a moral pulpit to influence the morality of society. The Constitution needs to address the issue of preventing the laws and customs of foreign lands from being used as precedents in any judicial case law. There can be no foreign treaties entered into that contradicts the U.S. Constitution without an Amendment change to correspond to that foreign treaty. And as America has traditionally been the melting pot of many national peoples seeking a new life those people must be amenable to swear to abide and uphold the U.S. Constitution adopting the traditions of America first while honoring their former culture second.

 

Well that is the part of a Constitutional Convention I am certain Leftists will cry a convention run-amok. For our Republic to survive future generations the traditions that have made us a desirable melting pot must be preserved. Losing those traditions to some kind of transforming diverse multicultural Socialist Democracy that descends into cultural chaos polarized racially to the extent political polarization tears the nation apart under political ideology rather than preserve national patriotism. Oh yeah … Let’s really drive the Left looney. We should throw in personhood establishing the rights of an unborn baby rather than perpetuate the myth that an unborn baby is an appendage of a woman’s body.
