“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” – James Madison, “Federalist No. 45,” Jan. 26, 1788

Last week, with the blessing of Bush and most of the U.S. Congress, the robber banker barons threw gasoline onto a bonfire. The financial Mt. Vesuvius hasn’t blown yet, but it will, and what was done last week and most likely through today, will be horrific. America has crossed the Rubicon.

Rage continues to build across this country with good reason. It was building back in October, 2003, when I wrote my column, It’s All Over Grab the Muskets. Change comes one city, one town, one county at a time. If you don’t try, the bad guys win by default. Great success has come from groups and organizations all over this country on issues like Agenda 21 because all politics are local. We have two levels of government: federal and state. If the states of the Union do not step up to the plate come January and repel the destruction of their sovereignty by the federal machine, they will become nothing more than occupied territories.

The citizens of the states: Your time has come to either step up to the plate or submit to human bondage. I know that millions of caring, decent Americans are trying to fight this leviathan monster out of Washington, DC., but as time has shown, between a completely broken judicial system, rotten career politicians and ignorant, uninformed, disinterested and special interest group voters, we are losing ground. As we continue to see the shredding of the Bill of Rights, Americans are becoming more afraid of the federal government. Take this 13:23 minute video. Watch it. What you see are Americans who have invested time and money into making a short film because they see the real time danger facing this republic by a growing police state under the guise of “for our own good” agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Americans continue to see the brutality out there by paramiliarized law enforcement against we the people for exercising peaceful assembly. Years ago, I brought to readers attention the treason by darling of FAUX News, Oliver North:

“1987: Then U.S. Attorney General William French Smith blew the whistle on a fairly low ranking Marine officer by the name of Oliver North. According to Smith, Lt. Col. Oliver North directly helped draft a plan in 1984 to impose martial law in the United States in the event of an emergency. This secret plan would suspend the U.S. Constitution and turn over control of the government to the little known agency at that time: FEMA. This plan would appoint military commanders to run state and local governments. Implementation of this plan would have been triggered by violent and wise spread internal dissent, disagreement with government policy or national opposition to any U.S. military invasion abroad. Essentially, it amounted to a complete and total suspension of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.”

As we all saw with Katrina, the military was brought in and the inalienable rights of the American people were simply stomped on. In the same link above, I brought your attention to a look into the future regarding military control of the civilian population:

The next real war we fight is likely to be on American soil.
Our civilian-military face-off (November 30, 1997)

“One startling quote in this article is from Admiral Stanley Arthur, Commander of U.S. naval forces during the Gulf War, where he says, “Today the armed forces are no longer representative of the people they serve. More and more, enlisted as well as officers are beginning to feel they are special, better than the society they serve.”

“When you turn to page two of this story, the headlines read, “Bill of Rights no obstacle for the Corps.” Another disturbing quote jumps out at you, “Because of the rising potential for civil disobedience within the inner cities it is ‘inevitable’ the U.S. military will be employed more often within American borders.”… Why the concern that there is a potential for civil disobedience by Americans? Where did this come from? …..

“Further into this shocking story: “…Major Reeves notes, when faced with violating doctrine or violating the law, some Marines chose the latter course and detained suspects and conducted warrant less searches. Indeed, with characteristic Marine Corps bluntness, the major states that, “in interviews with Marine officers involved in domestic peacekeeping missions with officers responsible for articulating the Marine Corps’ policy on domestic peacekeeping, it became apparent to the author that Marines took whatever action was necessary. At times, these actions required Marines to violate U.S. law.

“Similarly, Marine Capt. Guy Miner reported in the Gazette that Marine intelligence units were initially worried by the need to collect intelligence on U.S. citizens, which would violate a 1981 Executive Order, but that “this inhibition was quickly overcome….” And to chill you even further, “To enable the Marines to execute these new domestic missions in the same way that they do abroad, Major Reeves calls for major alternations in U.S. laws. “Experience from the Los Angeles riots,” he warns, “demonstrated the need to grant U.S. Marine forces the legal right to detain vehicles and suspects, conduct arrests, searches and seizures in order to accomplish the peacekeeping mission.”

Go ahead, print out the newspaper and read it. If this doesn’t give you the daytime version of pavor nocturnus, then you don’t grasp the severity of the problem. We are seeing more and more domestic spying on Americans, no knock searches killing innocent people, warrant less searches on flimsy probably cause and ‘civilian check points’ on our roads and highways. The misnamed ‘Patriot Act’ continues to be abused by federal dragoons. This is NOT the America thousands spilled their blood for on the battle fields during the Revolutionary War.

In my last column, I once again covered the National ID and it’s real purpose. Coming on the heels of this massive financial melt down that will only get WORSE going into next year, consider this headline:

Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1

“3rd Infantry’s 1st BCT trains for a new dwell-time mission. Helping ‘people at home’ may become a permanent part of the active Army.

“They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.”

It all sounds quite innocent with the mission of “helping” Americans. Just like Katrina. Benevolent mother government. Until you remember the plan Oliver North drew up and the previously mentioned blue print for the Marines to inject themselves into the civilian sector. All triggered by “violent and wise spread internal dissent, disagreement with government policy or national opposition to any U.S. military invasion abroad” or “rising potential for civil disobedience within the inner cities it is ‘inevitable’ the U.S. military will be employed more often within American borders.”

A substantial number of Americans believe this is a gross misuse of our military under The Posse Comitatus Act, a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 16, 1878, prohibiting most members of the federal uniformed services (the Army, Air Force, and State National Guard forces when such are called into federal service) from exercising nominally state law enforcement police or peace officer powers that maintain “law and order” on non-federal property (states, their counties and municipal divisions). In other words, the PCA limited to a great degree the powers of the federal government to use active military for law enforcement.

There have been more laws enacted by Congress over the years explicitly allowing the military to be used in certain domestic scenarios. Legal hawks say the most significant is the ‘Military Support for Civilian Law Enforcement Agencies Act of 1981 (“MSCLEA”), the purpose of which is to allow the exchange of information and services between military and law enforcement “when necessary” to protect the people and interests of the United States.

Major Craig T. Trebilcock, U.S. Army Reserve, penned a paper titled, ‘The Myth of Posse Comitatus‘, in October 2000, where he said: “Is the Posse Comitatus Act totally without meaning today? No, it remains a deterrent to prevent the unauthorized deployment of troops at the local level in response to what is purely a civilian law enforcement matter.”

Really? Did you forget New Orleans and WACO, Major Trebilcock? His paper was a justification for use of military within the states of the Union for “domestic terrorism.”

It is far too easy for these types of laws to end up being used against the civilian population as evidenced by the rise of Adolph Hitler. For an excellent overview of how Hitler took power, mirroring what we have seen the past seven years, see here.

As I said earlier, the rage has been growing exponentially over the past two decades as government becomes more oppressive and now with these monstrous bail outs, looting and pillaging we the people until we end up in rags, the people are really getting steamed:

Mad as hell – taxpayers lash out
We asked you what you had to say about the bailout, and we heard you loud and clear: ‘No way!’

“NO NO NO. Not just no, but HELL NO,” writes Richard, a reader from Anchorage, Alaska. “This is robbery pure and simple,” Anna from Denver posted on CNNMoney.com’s TalkBack blog this weekend. “It’s our money! Let these companies die,” added Claudio from Plainville, Conn.” For part two click below.

However, as Congressman Ron Paul pointed out in an interview September 19, 2008, this bail out won’t be the last. As a matter of fact, brace yourself: it looks like you and I will also be bailing out foreign banks! Oh, yeah, they’ll do it, you just watch. And, here come the lawsuits! Don’t worry, they’ll happen here soon.

As conditions worsen, any mass disruption would finish off the economy. We are a productive people, but our prosperity and freedom can only thrive under a free enterprise system, not Fascism or communism. Any major disruption to commerce in this country by angry mobs because of the continued financial catastrophe staring us in the face will be met with brute force. It is an ugly picture.

Congress and the U.S. Constitution were given life by the states who were guaranteed a republican form of government under Art. IV, section 4. Over the decades the states have allowed themselves to become nothing more than door mats to a dangerous, centralized government, forfeiting their rights under the Tenth Amendment:

“Another not unimportant consideration is that the powers of the general government will be, and indeed must be, principally employed upon external objects, such as war, peace, negotiations with foreign powers and foreign commerce. In its internal operations it can touch but few objects, except to introduce regulations beneficial to the commerce, intercourse and other relations, between the states, and to lay taxes for the common good. The powers of the states, on the other hand, extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, and liberties, and property of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the state.” –Joseph Story, associate justice, U.S. Supreme Court, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833

The state legislatures must stop this federal intrusion under the guise of “fighting the war on terrorism.” Dr. Edwin Vieira’s brilliant writings on the constitutional militia under the control of the states is the real homeland security that must be reconstituted, not active military deployed within the states of the Union.

The state legislatures must stand up and denounce the fraud of the Seventeenth Amendment. There is no other way to get rid of these self-righteous crooks in the U.S. Senate like Levin, McCain, Biden, Feinstein, Schumer, Clinton and all the rest. What an ignorant, dumbed down population does at the ballot box is finished off by the machines and scanners to ensure the desired outcome. The job of the U.S. Senate is trade and their decisions have KILLED off a productive nation that no longer even produces what we need for survival, not to mention the loss of millions of good paying jobs. The job of the U.S. Senate is affirming federal judges and justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. A massive failure by that body for a hundred years. The list goes on. If you are unfamiliar with this issue, please take the time over lunch, coffee or this weekend to read these important columns:

States must force 17th Amendment showdown
The gray wolf, the ESA & the 17th Amendment
It’s all about jurisdiction

The unconstitutional Federal Department of Education is nothing more than a massive waste of money whose agenda is total control of the indoctrination of America’s children into becoming global citizens while drowning them in filth. The states must kick them out since Congress refuses to abolish this unnecessary cabinet.

Another monstrous waste of money is the unconstitutional Federal Environmental Protection Agency. Another layer of government that is completely unnecessary and must be abolished. All states of the Union have their own and one size does NOT fit all.

The feds continue to shove unfunded mandates down the throats of the states who seem content to put up it with few exceptions. This financial earthquake is going to continue and the states, already cash strapped from mismanagement and federal mandates, are going to find themselves insolvent:

Washington State revenues drop as economy falls

“Fewer housing permits, falling car sales and fewer jobs in the construction sector helped blow away $529 million in expected future state tax collections, top state revenue forecasters said Thursday. The new quarterly forecast, issued by the Office of the Economic and Revenue Forecast Council in Olympia, sets up a potential $3.2 billion budget shortfall in 2009.”

It will gather water like a giant tsunami. Mark my words.

Activate America

Well, here I am. Another election cycle asking Americans to do the same thing I’ve asked the past ten elections. Perhaps the people are finally ready to back up ‘Enough is enough.’ If the people are silent now, prepare to be fitted for your chains. Americans must do as the fabulous folks in Tennessee did back in June, 2000. They got in the face of their legislature: “NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Police cars blockaded Tennessee state Capitol entrances and troopers patrolled legislative hallways this week as the state legislature found itself under siege by thousands of angry taxpayers upset at a plan to implement a state income tax.”

And, they won: NASHVILLE, Tenn. — “Ending one of the longest legislative sessions in state history, the Tennessee legislature temporarily sealed the fate of hard-fought efforts to implement a state income tax after weeks of vocal anti-tax protests by thousands of Tennesseans. Before adjourning the session Wednesday, the legislature overrode Gov. Don Sundquist’s veto of the state budget, just 60 hours before a possible state government shutdown.”

Members of the state legislatures are up for reelection. There are a lot of good legislators out there, but they are out numbered by the rotten political animals who care nothing about the U.S. Constitution or their own state constitutions. Between now and November 4th, all of these candidates and incumbents from sheriffs to mayors to the state house will be out campaigning, participating in debates and those all important town hall meetings. 95% of all state legislators, senators and reps, do not care what you want nor are they afraid of we the people — except in the great State of Tennessee when THOUSANDS came out and told them NO.

You are not alone. There are millions of Americans just like you who are fed up. They realize we are being reduced to a third world country and being forced into poverty while the elites rape and pillage this country. How do you do this? Call talk radio in your area and let everyone know when your state legislator will be attending any function from dinners to town hall meetings to debates. Let them know if you have a constitutional group in the area, where you’re going to meet to prepare to attend all these functions. Call your area Constitution Party or Republican Party and go to their meetings. Try to get them to join in these events. These are American issues, not political party squabbles.

Town Hall meetings are deliberately held during the day when people are working, but a fair number are held at night. This is where our retirees and folks on flexible schedules must step forward. Get someone to do a flyer to pass out. If your group puts together a good one on the issues, I’ll post it in my columns and on my web site so people can use it in their state.

Those who make the most noise get heard. Got that? Three people showing up to politely grill a candidate or incumbent won’t make a difference, but 300 or 3000 will send a very clear message, just like those great Tenesseans. Just like the 10,000 marched who marched in one city in Sweden on September 20, 2008, against globalization. Go on line or call your state rep and senator and ask them for a schedule of appearances. It’s easy and keep the pressure on right up the election.

This is YOUR opportunity to become part of the solution. This is YOUR opportunity to demand the state legislatures (1) reconstitute the constitutional militias because our very survival depends on it. If you are unfamiliar with this critical issue, you can listen to Dr. Vieira on audio here; (2) Seventeenth Amendment challenge; (3) no military on our streets for any reason; (4) NO more sanctuary cities. ALL illegal aliens, regardless of age, must be rounded up and deported; (5) any issues that are germane for your state and get rid of all unconstitutional laws on the books. We don’t need thousands of new laws, we need to get rid of the bad ones and enforce the constitutional ones for a limited form of republican government.

America is crying out for leadership. There is plenty in this country, we just have to get you all connected together, i.e., gun organizations, veterans groups, parents groups — you name it. This is our country and we have to fight for it because the clock is ticking. Our children and grand children have NO future if we don’t force our state legislatures and Congress to return to constitutional government.

If you’re a student in college, put a poster up on every bulletin board authorized. Pass them out at lunch or breaks. Tune out the distractions, cancel the fishing trip or ball game. Use the Internet to look up groups in your area. Use key words like constitutional meetings or citizens for constitutional government or Ron Paul meet up groups. They’re organized in the thousands. Call your friends and like minded individuals who all know ten people who know ten people. Spread the word over the back yard fence, around the water cooler, at the dog show or NASCAR races. When you attend these events you will meet more people and our power will grow. Our forces will multiply many times over. Organize your groups for more than one event scheduled on the same night.

When Bill Clinton was to attend a private fund raiser over in the SF Bay Area, ‘soccer moms with a brain’ got the address and showed up with kids in strollers and signs that said, “Sexual predator coming to the neighborhood.” Clinton skipped the event. We the people must go out in full force between now and November 4th. Silence is not an option. Then, in January, we the people must crank it up when the state legislatures begin their new sessions. NO MORE BUSINESS AS USUAL. THIS IS GOING TO BE YOUR AGENDA AND YOU WORK FOR US.

I will help you all I can with my columns to get the word out. Forget the next election or 2012. Our destiny is now. We are at the crossroads and only by putting fear of the people back into these public servants will we get them to respond. Not with violence, but with numbers. We must do this because none of us want to see societal breakdown. It will lead to chaos and give the shadow government the excuse they need to bring down the hammer.

Listen and don’t kill the messengers!

I pledge

AN AMERICA THAT CAN SAY NO

Posted on

https://i0.wp.com/beinart.org/artists/bradley-platz/gallery/bradley-platz-6.jpg art: Bradley Platz

by Michael Rivero

There is no freedom without the freedom to say “no”. Free people can say “no”. Slaves cannot.

If we are free, or at least free enough that the terrorists hate us for it, then we have the right and ability and often the moral duty to say “no”. We have the right to say “no” to being lied to. We have the right to say “no” to being lied into war. Certainly we have a right to say “no” when the government demands that we make do with less, so that the government and its favored cronies may have more.

Right now, the government is preparing to “fix” the economic mess by setting up a new Resolution Trust Corporation. For those too young to remember, this is a repeat of the same scam used to “fix” the S&L Debacle (remember the Keating Five?) back in the 1980s. And in short it was simply going around with a checkbook filled with taxpayer dollars and cleaning up the mess made by reckless deal making (and a little CIA drug money laundering) in a climate of relaxed regulation.

So, here we are, 20 years later, yet another Bush in the White House and a repeat of the same fiscal debacle stares us in the face. More than coincidence? Many think so.

The mere rumor of a new RTC sent the stock market soaring. Why not? The US Government is telling the investors that they can keep the profits from any trades, but any further losses will get transferred to the taxpayers. It’s like being in Las Vegas at the Blackjack table, and every time you get 21 or beat the dealer, you get to keep the winnings, but if you bust, or the dealer wins, they take the money from the bus boy cleaning the table behind you. Such a deal! What’s not to like?

Unless you are that bus boy, of course.

Wall Street executives are running around and saying that the taxpayer has to pick up the tab. “Has to”? Why? Why should we be on the hook for other peoples’ bad judgments, especially when those people walked away form their bad judgments with $20 and $40 million dollar severance packages? Why is it our mess to clean up?

We cleaned up the last mess, back in the 80s. And the lesson we all learned is that no lessons were learned at all by the people whose assets we saved at great personal sacrifice. By protecting them from their mistakes, they just went on to make bigger mistakes. And now they are saying that We the people “have” to pick up the tab again.

We already give government at all levels 50% of our money. Do you think giving them the other 50% is going to motivate them to make better decisions? Or will they smile, relax, thanks whatever gods they pray to that they dodged another disaster (at taxpayer expense), and go right back to living life as they always have?

Back in the 80s, additional taxes were a cause for grumbling, but affordable. Today the situation is vastly different. We The People have been taxed to the edge of poverty. Nearly one out of every ten homes is delinquent in the mortgage or in foreclosure. One out of every five homes is in trouble with the IRS. It is no longer a question of whether we wish to pay additional tax or not; we can’t! We don’t have it. There is nothing left TO tax.

Which isn’t going to stop the greedy bastards from trying to force the taxpayers to buy up all those worthless assets that Wall Street itself refuses to touch.

Probably the only reason they have not already set up this new RTC is they are trying to figure out how to sell it to you; choose which spin, which LIE will trick you into going along with this latest financial rape of the working class American. Last time, in the 80s, it was all about saving the poor widows and pensioners and orphans on fixed income. Then we found out (after it was too late) that most of those accounts refilled with our tax dollars were numbered and brokered corporate accounts.

So, it’s really up to you.

Remember the movie “Network?” “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any longer!”

You need to be there. You need to get angry. REALLY angry. Mad-dog pissed off angry. Ready to start shooting angry. You need to say, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any longer”, and you need to say it like you mean it.

Because if you stay silent and let the greedy bastards pull this off, it will be the end of the middle class. There will be the ultra-rich with their severance packages, and everyone else will be taxed into poverty to support them.

So, here is where I ask you for two favors.

Favor one: Go to www.congress.org and get the contact info for all your government representatives. Forget email; that’s filtered. Call them, FAX them, pound on the door. Delivery two messages. Tell them, “I will NOT be made to pay for other peoples’ mistakes.” And tell them “I will not vote for anyone who insists I pay for other peoples’ mistakes.” Growl when you say it.

Favor two: Post this message on every BBS, web site, message board and mailing list you can find. Get everyone else to call their congresscritters. Tell them they need to learn how to say “NO” and make it stick. Make that “NO” heard not only in the halls of Washington DC and New York but in every major investment center in the world. Tell them that you will NOT be the guarantor of their investments in the United States any longer.

You are a free human being.

You have a right to say “no.”

UPDATE: Link to www.congress.org is fixed. Start calling and faxing.
I am reposting this today because President Bush has just finished his speech saying that “we” must all deal with this crisis. He is sending to Congress his plan to have the US Taxpayer buy up all these worthless assets that the big banks and investment houses bought in their greed, then when they discovered that nobody wanted to buy them, called up their favorite government pawns to FORCE you to buy them collectively.

Bush is already claiming that in the long run, this plan won’t really cost you anything. Keep in mind that this is the same man who promised you that Iraq’s oil would pay for the war and reconstruction, and his father made the same claim about the S&L bailout.

Fool me once …

This is a disaster for Americans. The immediate cost is estimated at $3200.00 for every man, woman, and child living in the United States, but since large segments of the population do not pay taxes, the actual burden on taxpayers will be far higher. And all to save the gambling addicts on Wall Street from the painful reality that investment involves RISK; that you are going to LOSE money on certain investments just as you will lose your chips when the dice roll the wrong way.

Wall Street wants its cake and eat it to. They want to go on gambling and feel that thrill of the big win, and keep their wealth. But they want to dump the losses on someone else, and Bush is going to help them do it. On you.

This does NOT fix the economy. Yes, the DOW is soaring and the gambling addicts are happy and no doubt writing huge checks to their favorite candidates who just sold your soul to them, but take a look out the window. Are the high-paying jobs coming back? Are prices for basic necessities going back down? Are the mortgage companies calling you up and saying “We changed our minds and you can keep that lower interest rate?” No? I did not think so.

You have one chance and one chance only to stop this disaster.

This is an election year. Call every single incumbent you can, and tell them you will not be forced to pay for other people’s reckless mistakes, nor will you vote for anyone who dare suggests that we be forced to pay for other peoples’ reckless mistakes. Then get on every BBS, message board, and blog you can and urge others to do the same.

If there was ever a time to be “Mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it any more”, this is it.

LIFE AND DEATH

The Revolutionary Meeting by Ilya Repin

By: Peter Chamberlin

When it becomes obvious to the rest of the country that we are truly locked into a life or death struggle the people will rise-up from their easy chairs and demand answers. If we cannot make them aware of the obvious fateful track we are now on before then, then it will be too late for us all.

The life or death struggle I am referring to is not with some shadowy terrorist group, or with an axis of foreign governments, but with our own government. We are in an existential struggle with the Bush Administration and everyone in government who supports the violence they carry-out upon the world.

The struggle is between the American people and an out of control administration determined to visit world war III upon the world before its allotted time is up. For their own reasons (which are transparent to the discerning eye), Bush and Cheney are going to find a politically feasible way to attack someone else before their power is taken away.

This attack plan risks the survival of the planet and all life upon it, to carry-out the neocon war. Our two co-presidents are so committed to their obviously catastrophically failed war plan to seize all the resources of South Asia that they cannot allow their time to expire without taking irreversible actions. They think that they can threaten, bribe, intimidate and selectively nuke key governments in the region (including Russia and China) to have their way with them.

This most distrusted government in our history wants us to trust their judgment that they can “shock and awe” the world into submission to American demands, without destroying the world in the process. This most incompetent government ever elected by the American people, diddled while the economy was crushed by the weight of its insane economic and military policies, and enacted police state laws in an illegal manner, and now intends to kill many millions more innocents than it already has for the sake of total control.

This most devious and malign administration to ever curse the White House threshold thinks that it would be a good thing to kill millions as “collateral damage” in their plan to create a global American empire. They are either so foolish that they think that America would survive in a post-nuclear war world, or they have other plans for themselves so that they do not care whether this Nation survives the ravages of their scheme to reap absolute wealth. Perhaps this gives credence to the rumor from the Latin American press about a recent Bush family purchase of a large portion of Paraguay –

“…a few short miles from the US Mariscal Estigarribia Military Base…

[Sitting atop the] Acuifero Guaraní…one of the largest underground water reserves in South America.”

The solutions being discussed (to this life or death struggle between the American people and a malignant administration determined to risk the fate of the world) range from impeachment to outright revolution. I am of the opinion that violent revolution is wrong, unless government actions turn it into a matter of self-defense, and that impeachment is too slow and weak to stop Bush from pushing the button when the opportunity arises. The opportunity may arise very soon in the mountains of Pakistan, as American troops making illegal incursions are now being repelled by Pakistani military forces.

This administration cannot be trusted to possess the powers that it has usurped. The Bush Administration has to have its hands tied now, even before it is removed from office. Congress must know whose side in this life or death struggle the American people are on.

We the people have to assume our rightful power and show our hand now, as we find the means to legally bind the bloody hands and force the issue to a head, before Bush or Cheney acts. Congress must witness an aroused population that is “mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore!”

If you won’t stand-up for the sake of your own children’s lives, then what will you take a stand for?

CHANGE or SURRENDER!

Posted on

Jim Kirwan

Over the last two weeks ‘Change’ has completed its ‘Coup’ in the streets of Denver and St. Paul, while the public panders to an electoral process that offers no choice whatever, between candidates that have accepted a presidential election in which 40 % of the voting machines are clearly hackable.

“AMY GOODMAN: On Wednesday, prosecutors formally charged eight members of the RNC Welcoming Committee with conspiracy to riot in furtherance of terrorism. The eight activists are believed to be the first people ever charged under the 2002 Minnesota version of the federal PATRIOT Act. The activists face up to seven-and-a-half years in prison.”

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution clearly states:

“Congress shall make no law. . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (1)

The state of Minnesota’s version of the Patriot Act is clearly in violation of the US Constitution; and since no state may create laws that violate the US Constitution, the charges against these eight people are blatantly un-constitutional.

This ‘happened’ because after the US House of Representatives put 404 knives into the constitution when they voted 404 to 6, to authorize H. R. 1955, the legislation then went to the Senate, where their version (S 1959) is still waiting for a vote.(2)

What happened in St. Paul was the illegal use of this legislation that has not as yet been passed into federal law. “CHANGE” happened when this policy moved from the legislature into the streets of St. Paul, Minnesota – without going through the process of first becoming U.S. Law!

The language in H.R. 1955 is purposely obscure, because it tries to mask the fact that American citizens can now be charged with “pre-emptive crimes” for attempting to change the minds of people, or government policies: which is the whole idea behind politics and actual freedom of speech. The prosecution of “Pre-emptive-crimes” is not something that law-enforcement is allowed to do: It is illegal because to commit a crime someone must do something criminal, merely talking about the ideas behind any action cannot in itself be a crime. “Conspiracy” in this case was used as a blanket and bogus justification to do what otherwise is prohibited and when ‘law enforcement” did this, they committed a crime against those they have falsely charged.

This legislation was created against a backdrop of government spying upon all of us, seven months before 911 happened. This action was illegally instituted by the federal government to spy on American citizens without probable cause or legal notice. Those major communications giants that participated in this completely illegal action have now been pardoned for their treason against the people of the United States by another piece of legislation that was just signed into law. But all the spying and all of the government’s attempts to intimidate the public was not enough it seems. So congress created H.R. 1955 and S 1959, to ‘legalize’ thought crimes under cover of: The Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007, which is still NOT the law of this land! (3)

Ironically a truly strict interpretation of this “revision” in the laws governing free speech could result in charging every politician in this nation with this “crime” because the very nature of politics is about changing people’s minds and altering perceptions. Subjective interpretation is however the weapon of choice being used here; subjective from the point of view of what constitutes free-speech versus what now amounts to inciting to riot. (4)

The contrived existence of the two major political parties has proven to be an outrage against the constitution and against all the law abiding citizens of this country. The fact that Americans cannot read or understand their own constitution is one reason why there are elected legislators and constitutionally bound representatives to do this for them.

The completion of this “CHANGE” has meant that the legal representatives of the public have sold out those that sent them to Washington, and have chosen instead to protect the criminal-consortium that now runs this nation and potentially the world.

At the heart of this matter lies the rule of unchecked and out-of-control corporate-Capitalism, which itself is a crime against civil order and universal common law. This breed of Capitalism has become a curse upon this society in direct proportion to the degree that Money-Greed-&-Power is now ‘our’ new Trinity. Apparently there is not enough room anywhere for both ordinary people and unchecked Capitalism to function under the same rules—so the Owners have decided to criminalize members of the public for even thinking about changing the status quo!

This nation is being torn apart yet the four pretenders that seek high-office will not discuss any of the major threats that most of us face every day: During this interminable-presidential-campaign that in and of itself is almost criminal. Instead they have launched into a smoke and mirrors campaign about which of the two parties will ‘best serve’ the public.

The Republicans say that change is needed—yet they are the ones that have almost totally destroyed every aspect of American life in only eight years. The Democrats say they’re here to fix everything, yet Obama has repeatedly failed every test from what happened between Russia and Georgia to his timid acceptance of Sarah Palin as a legitimate candidate. Had Obama done his homework he would have discovered just who the “leadership” in Georgia really is, which tends to alter how anyone might see what took place when Russia went to the defense of its people. (5)

Over and over again everyone in this race has dropped the ball hundreds of times, especially the mainstream media that has failed the public by not reporting in depth on what happened during the conventions, where FOX News was both embedded with the police and also served as the sole media source for video coverage of both conventions.

It’s only been a few days since Sarah Palin announced her acceptance to run for the Vice-Presidency but the volume of lies and deceptions unearthed, between her record and the truth, that continues to pour in at a record pace tends to cancel out her initial “glow.” Her ‘job’ it seems as governor of Alaska only amounts to 60 days a year. Her views and conquests have similarly been trashed, not because she is a woman, but because she’s been nothing more than a below-average political hack! The town where she was Mayor is now wresting with massive debt, accumulated because of her “programs.’ She likes hunting but recommends that it be done by hunters from aircraft for the trophy money to be earned by killing various animals. And there was mention of the fact that she would not be granting interviews.

Without the distraction of Palin the GOP is as dead as yesterday’s headlines; but the owners needed someone to keep the numbers close, because they plan to steal this election too; and that cannot be done if the margin of separation is too large.

The United States has far more serious problems than just the personalities and deficiencies of this Gang-of-Four, but since there is a news blackout going on about what is actually taking place in the streets of our cities, it hardly seems likely that much will be done of any substance before the elections. After-the Selections “the Change” will be seen for “the Surrender” that it has always been, and by then it will be too late to “WAKE UP!”

Speaking out against government policies is not a privilege it’s a duty, especially during times of war! These new ‘illegal interpretations’ of what Americans can say or do toward that end will crush any and all resistance to the ever-stronger fascist police state which was demonstrated during the conventions in both St. Paul and Denver.

Treason and chaos are afoot in this land but those very real threats do not come from protestors in the streets, they’re coming from the White House and from the owners of the New World Order. Perhaps we should all remember the words of Edmond Burke: “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men (and women) to do nothing.”

Turning Away From American State Terrorism

By: Peter Chamberlin

“The American people realize this election represents a turning point. In two months they will decide the future direction of our nation. It’s a decision to follow one path or another.” Rudy Giuliani

The choice we face in November is very clear. It is a choice to continue to support the US terror war, or to turn away from this path of unlimited destruction. This lie-based war is all about terrorism – whether America actually fights terrorism or promotes its use. To find the answer to this conundrum all we have to do is turn our gaze to Pakistan.

In Pakistan we find the complete history of the American “war on terrorism,” from its Cold War origins nearly thirty years ago to its present incarnation in the illegal American aggression in Pakistan’s Frontier region (FATA, Federally Administered Tribal Areas) and in American attempts to reignite the Cold War with Russia. The latest cross-border attack against Pakistan in South Waziristan, which involved American helicopters and ground troops, costing 15 villagers their lives, represents the first steps in American attempts to escalate its war into a reasonable facsimile of another world war.

Once again, America claims that its aggression against Pakistan is a legitimate act of self-defense against the “Pakistani Taliban” (TTP,Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan), who, it is claimed, are responsible for America’s faltering war effort in Afghanistan. Wednesday’s aggression was another attempt to get TTP leader Baitullah Mehsud (branded “public enemy number one” by the US) or one of his top commanders. Mehsud is the key to understanding America’s true role in the terror war, that of state terrorism planner and facilitator, in order to later assume the role of defender against the terrorism it causes.

Baitullah Mehsud assumed control of the TTP from its founder, his infamous cousin Abdullah Mehsud. Abdullah was a prisoner at Guantanamo before being inexplicably released to return to Pakistan, where he founded the new Taliban splinter group. On his second day in S. Waziristan he instigated the kidnapping of two Chinese engineers from the building of the Gomal Zam Dam, beginning the TTP fight against America’s adversaries in the region.

Setting the pattern for all future American terror attacks, the American media reported that America’s secret allies, the TTP, were “al Qaida linked.” Whenever and wherever the Western media uses the expression “al Qaida linked,” to describe terrorist attacks, they are referring to American terrorism. This is also painfully true about those sinister forces that killed 3,000 American civilians on September 11, 2001. American/“al Qaida” terrorism always targets civilians, even American civilians. Next to the US military, al Qaida is the greatest killer of innocent Muslims in the world.

Now we have American covert forces busily killing Pakistani civilians by the hundreds, in order to justify the planned overwhelming American assault upon Pakistan, which is conveniently situated between the main target Iran and all that juicy fuel located in the “Stans,” the former Soviet satellites where America’s Georgian mercenaries are busily committing acts of genocide to restart the new Cold War.

The American destabilization of nuclear-armed Pakistan has been the key to the planned destruction of Iran and the seizure of the Caspian region oil and gas fields and the pipeline routes for marketing the stolen booty. Targeting American-backed militants, who are using the same terrorist training camps created by the CIA to launch a “jihad” against the Soviets, American interests are seeking to topple the Pakistani government and to seize their nuclear arsenal.

The corporate American government cannot survive the debt-based collapse of its own economy and the world economy without a massive military expansion of its power, gaining control of the world’s energy reserves. America cannot continue bullying the world to have its way without this key asset.

The Republican and Democratic co-conspirators understand the dilemma created by America’s greed and attempts to forge a global empire. This means that no matter who wins the November election will continue this policy of international piracy and terrorism. It is up to the American people to decide whether these policies of state terrorism continue. It is our decision to make, whether we allow America to destroy the world to save itself, or whether we suffer the economic consequences for our actions in the past. By our inaction, or by the wrong action, we allow the evil that our government continually sows. By participating in our farcical “free elections,” casting a vote for either man, we vote to destroy a large portion of the world and its people.

We can no longer give our assent to the crimes against humanity committed against the world by our government on a daily basis. Non-participation in the affairs of this government on any level, will deny it the cover of legitimacy and support it needs to continue on its terror rampage. We must become the “monkey wrench” in the works of government and in American life, in general. We begin by overwhelming the Congress with our righteous anger against governmental plans to unleash hell on earth.

All it will take to do this is a unified signal from the people that we will no longer silently abide its immoral actions. The Congressional parasites who feed at the public trough fear a non-complacent electorate, a united people committed to reclaiming our rightful positions as “watchdogs” of government.

All we have to do to sway a chicken hawk Congress is to convince them that we are now awake. We must focus our antiwar efforts to disrupt the aggression against Pakistan. It is time to join with the democratic antiwar resistance forces in Pakistan, to put an end to the American empire of terror.

Fight the evil that we have become!

Overcoming Human Nature: The Revolution of the Meek

Posted on

By: Peter Chamberlin

What words can I conjure to give meaning to the visions that dominate my brain, images of evil and bloodlust, consuming the flesh of an unwary people. I see the rapidly approaching epic, the cataclysmic convulsion of a violent racist culture, stabbing feverishly at its own womb, hoping to abort the birth of the new man of peace and unity.

I see clearly the rising image of the new race, a new culture dedicated to enlightenment. The new mankind will be hungry for knowledge, in the same way that the current race is hungry for wealth and power. The new man will seek to overcome life’s problems through understanding them, instead of forcefully re-ordering them to a more acceptable configuration.

Bringing forth the “New Man” is the core of all religious teaching, as is the coming catastrophic era, which will draw-out the mind of the new man from the debris of the shattered old mind. No prophet or founder of religions has ever been able to convert more than a handful of his closest followers into these New Men, whose minds have been liberated from the baggage of the old. But each of them clearly described the apocalyptic events which would rip the new earth from the old.

All belief systems, even religious ones, have been corrupted by power-mad individuals who intend to keep mankind in the dark, confused about the most basic items of truth and reality. They perverted the faiths, turning each of them away from the nurturing teachings of their Prophet founders, focusing instead, on sowing division among the faithful. Trusted spiritual leaders, by their actions, have hidden the many ways of growing a generation of “New Men,” ensuring that mankind would only have one path to mass enlightenment open unto them, the path of cataclysm/conversion. The new man would eventually arise, but, like the Phoenix, he would necessarily arise out of the ashes of the old order.

The great intellectual leaps made in the past are portrayed as ends in themselves, not as steps in a series of enlightening revelations. Religion itself, has been turned into a dead end, where personal enlightenment is allegedly only possible if carried-out in a sanctioned group environment.

The closing of minds is the cornerstone of all efforts to claim illegitimate power on this earth. Conversely, the opening of minds must be the foundation for any effort to call forth the new man, who will naturally assume his rightful place between the majority of the human race and the evil minority that seeks to enslave all life.

In order for us to open a new path to awakening a generation of new men we must expose the corruption and imminent collapse of the old order, which is based on economic control, and visualize the new earth, based on cooperation and shared humanity. We see a new world, not based on control and the idea of domination, but one of unlimited human potential, given free rein to grow and understand the problems that we create for ourselves. The old world order must give way to a new world that has no center, where edicts and coercive dictates do not exist. In the new order, power will flow from each person.

In the old order, everyman was encouraged to want to be king. “Success” was measured by how close you came to fulfilling this kingly ambition. The “aristocracy” (“rule by the best,” meaning the wealthiest) came to rule over mankind, with each man giving his consent to the arrangement. The cultivated desire to live like kings is the glue that bound the kingdom together, becoming the basis of the capitalist system.

The “aristocrats” were a minority of individuals possessed of the desire to dominate and control all things within their grasp. The bigger their grasp, the more people there were under their influence, capable of being dominated or controlled. The original kings were the most successful members the self-appointed aristocracy, those most ruthless men who had amassed the most wealth, making them most capable of hiring armies of mercenaries and thugs to enforce their will and to maintain their economic domination.

These were men without consciences, who were never bothered by the human suffering they created in their lust to control and to accumulate the resources now divided amongst the masses.

The aristocratic minority possess abnormal personalities marked by psychopathic obsessions to dominate and control others, as opposed to normal people, whose natures allow them to work and play well with others. The economic system created by the aristocracy is a system of control, enforced by laws and armies, designed to expand, without end, until all life on the planet is brought under aristocratic domination. The expansion of the system will not stop until all resources are brought under their control.

In order for the system to function, the majority of the people have to remain as willing to submit to the economic domination of the wealthy minority as the elite are determined to dominate them. But a funny thing happened on the way to the world dictatorship, just before total resource domination was achieved, the majority began to resist. The “meek” were starting to assert their will to hold onto the little that they had. The resistance of the meek had begun.

For the total global aristocratic dominion to become reality the force levels used to maintain control over the majority have to increase to a level sufficient to eliminate all ideas of further resistance. It had become crystal clear to the elite planners that the only way for the aristocracy to maintain its web of control and to accomplish its plans for total resource domination was to unleash all the force in its arsenal into the heart of the global resistance.

If the key to continued domination of the earth was to unleash a spasm of violence like the world had never before witnessed, culminating in a global thermonuclear war, the death of millions and the destruction of the planet, then so be it! The meek cannot be allowed to inherit anything; everything belongs to the ruling class!

The would-be world rulers are faced with an extreme dilemma, “how to conquer the world without destroying themselves with it?” If the plan for total resource domination calls for the full use of all military power to overcome weaker enemies, then how could you attack adversaries with equivalent forces without causing your own destruction?

The self-appointed rulers of the world determined that these powerful competitors could be compromised through the same formula of economic coercion that their kind had always employed – bribes and threats of force. “King’s ransoms” would surely bend the most-dangerous resistance forces to their wills. “Low-level conflict,” a euphemism for warfare by terrorism, would convey the threat of greater war, along with the exorbitant bribes, for those who were more resistant to the empire’s “reasoning.”

But even this game is running-up against the will of the resistance, the “meek” are getting really pissed-off, in the face of insane measures meant to ignite world war and to unleash the dreaded nuclear “horseman of the apocalypse” upon the resistant “lower” classes. If a majority of us “get our backs up,” no amount of worthless currency will buy us off. We are witnesses to the ongoing attempts by the American government and its foreign minions to ignite an insane world war, for the sake of preserving the illegitimate power that drives their megalomaniacal dreams.

Enough is enough! The time has come for the revolution of the meek. We will not go quietly into the night!

For those who believe in freedom, the revolution calls you.

For those who hate freedom for others, the revolution waits for you.

All power which assumes greater powers for itself than those it was originally given is illegitimate power. In an age when illegitimate power is openly moving to seize all available power, all those free men who love the rights and powers granted to them by their Creator must step forward to oppose the seizure. If all good things flow from the mind of God, then those men who move to separate mankind from these good things are clearly evil.

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke. This truism applies to all men, for all time, but it is truer today than in any past era. When governments all over the world work together to preserve their collective illegitimate powers, then it is time for a worldwide revolution to set all men free.

As Americans, we are at the epicenter of the world collective of illegitimate power. It is our destiny to be the ones who stand face-to-face with “the Beast, to force a divide within the government collective (Congress), that will disable the forward thrust to crush the rights of all mankind. To all the members of the United States Congress I say, if you, as our representatives, allow the invasion of another country, or the introduction of American troops into the streets of the United States, for the purpose of ending democracy and eliminating the Bill of Rights, then the revolution awaits you.

To President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Speaker Pelosi and Harry Reid, I say to you, if you move forward with your plans for world war or for establishing a police state in America, for the purpose of seizing control of the world’s energy sources and creating an illegitimate world government, then the revolution awaits you, with all its fury.

America’s illegitimate power can no longer be maintained. America’s military and other powers of persuasion can no longer contain the actions of the other governments of the world. Killing is not the solution, the saving and improving of all life is the answer. This country has amassed the largest debt that the world has ever witnessed, for the sake of empowering the military machine used to dominate the world. This debt will never be repaid.

In the time America has left to continue operations under this debt-based system (before our creditors decide to pull the plug on our borrowing) we must move away from war, towards the path of reconciliation. In a world of near-total chaos, brought about by our double-dealing “diplomacy” and our own military and economic aggression, America will find itself broken and alone. If we have any hope of being allowed back into the world community after it begins to recover from the great collapse, then it will only come about by our trying right now, to repair the damage that we have wrought, before it becomes impossible to do so.

This requires that we stop our war of terrorism and devote a large portion of those funds dedicated to waging the war into an international re-building effort, to begin to repair the nations we have destroyed and to alleviate some of the human suffering we have caused. In the new world economy, the illegitimate power of capitalism, which can only be maintained by military force, will have been broken itself. This breakdown will cause unimaginable suffering to intensify, as the food distribution chains break down, as well. What would an investment equivalent to one year of the Pentagon’s budget (or the amount spent on new weapons systems in one year) do towards insuring that more people do not starve because of America’s mistakes?

Americans must reconcile themselves to the horrendous truth about what has been done to the world in our name. We must face the ugly truth that we have allowed our government to rampage through the world like some rabid beast, devouring the weak and wounding the strong. We have allowed our government to assume illegitimate power to a level that rivals all predecessor progenitors of evil.

As this evil government moves against the world with the fullness of its military power, we can see clearly that the revolution has come to us. Do we allow the destruction of freedom, God’s greatest gift to mankind, or do we follow the example of our own sacred predecessors and stand together as free men, standing between our government and the world? The revolution is all that stands between the evil plans of these men and their fulfillment. What will you do when the rest of us take our stand?

This evil era has been foretold by prophets the world over, for many centuries. Each prophecy spoke of those who stood fast for truth in the face of those who sought to bury freedom and turn the world into a race of slaves. Are you among those few who will place your very life on the frontline of freedom?

The revolution has found you. Can you ignore its call?
