The Language of Subjugation: "with tyranny and injustice for all"

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government." Patrick Henry

We are taught that police officers are at all times to be respected, as keepers of the peace and upholders of the rule of law. Indeed, the political talking heads and pop culture generally portray law enforcement as heroic and beyond reproach. In discussing the actions of police at the G-20 in Pittsburgh last September, most commentators will freely admit their biased willingness to side with the cops, while downplaying video evidence of the thuggish treatment of demonstrators (you know, "we don't see the context of why the officer struck the young lady in the face"). A free people are not required to submit to the demands of any person wearing a badge. We the people are not medieval serfs who must bow down to the crown. Your badge represents the job that you chose- it does not convey any absolute authority over law-abiding citizens in a constitutional republic.
Our beloved US Constitution, together with a historically moral citizenry, has been responsible for creating the most universally free and prosperous society in the history of mankind. Nevertheless, over the course of many decades, the statist has managed to circumvent the firewalls that once protected the people from the strong hand of government.

"Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety."
Benjamin Franklin

Would anyone argue that the framers of our constitution had intended for law-enforcement to have extra-constitutional powers such as, the adorably named, sneak and peek. Does anyone think that Patrick Henry could have foreseen the day when the American people would capitulate to a knock-and-talk, at the hands of their own countrymen. Would Benjamin Franklin have submitted to a stop and frisk of his person? These practices, among many others, run contrary to the spirit in which our Constitution was written. Their implementation, generally upheld by the Supreme Court (no less!), is more fitting of King George's kangaroo court.

Particularly in the aftermath of 9/11, We all let our guard down and as a result, the US government is a virtually sovereign institution unto itself. The politicians, bureaucrats, and the globe's most monied interests preserve their own wealth and power, at taxpayer expense. Manipulated by the media fear mongering, the American people have submitted their freedom for a little perceived security. Today, the system (owned by a small corporate banking elite) has turned it guns inward, with Homeland Security naming any opponent of its policies as potentially violent extremists. Even nonviolent protest is viewed as 'low level terrorism' by the DoD. I guess it is true: if the government is run by criminals, then I guess good patriotic Americans are their number one threat.

"Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Adams

The truth is, We have become a cowardly people, unfit to govern ourselves. If the government claims it must infringe on our rights, or keep secrets from us, we willingly shrug our shoulders and accept the encroaching tyranny? HELL NO! We must re-discover the good Lord and the spirit of liberty. We must reject the establishment's justifications for this police state that has been created. Finally, we must see our bondage for what it is. The so called sneak and peek is breaking and entering, whether the aggressor has a badge on or not.

sneak and peak- search warrant authorizing the law enforcement officers executing it to
effect physical entry into private premises without the owner’s or the occupant’s permission
knowledge and to clandestinely search the premises
knock and talk- a noncustodial procedure where the officer identifies himself and asks to
talk to the home occupant and then eventually, requests permission to search the residence
stop and frisk- The situation in which a police officer who is suspicious of an individual
detains the person and runs his hands lightly over the suspect's outer garments to determine
if the person is carrying a concealed weapon.

Civil Unrest Looms; Police Abuse More College Students

The latest assault on non-violent protesters comes from the Rochester, New York police department, as several dozen anti-war demonstrators were met by another aggressive response from police seemingly itching for a fight. We are beginning to see a schism between American youth, who are watching the generation in power destroy their formerly wealthy and free nation, and the guardians of the status-quo. One brief note for those who aren't in the know: America's problems have nothing to do with the color of the president's skin. Unfortunately, young Americans will not soon agree on the size and breadth of the government they would like to see. But, we do know one thing: what we have seen in recent weeks in Pittsburgh and Rochester are not it!

I would suggest three steps in the right direction that most all of us could agree.

1.) DO NOT BE INTIMIDATED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT WHEN EXERCISING CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. We must stand together in numbers, armed with cameras to capture crimes committed against us. We must denounce those who speak of violence, and watch vigilantly for agent provocateurs. We must revive sit-ins, where our cameras can prove that protesters were subdued, and therefore could not be the initiators of violence. Any aggression against us in this way cannot be justified by the media.

2.) Support measures to audit, and then end the fed! Our debt based economy has benefited too few for too long. The private and run-for-profit Federal Reserve has been the ultimate good old boy's network since 1913. The dollar has lost 95 percent of its value since the Fed's inception, and the globalists have used it to finance their world empire and the military-industrial-complex. The Wall St. banksters have leveraged our very lives and labor in order to continue to consolidate control over every facet of society.

3.) Begin the conversation with representatives about permanently disbanding the Department of Homeland Security. They have quickly gone from securing the nation against Muslim sleeper cells, to calling peaceful protests "low level terrorism" (Google that one if you don't believe me). Basically, if you strongly believe in any cause, or if you are against any US Government policy, you may be a domestic extremist according to Homeland Security. The DHS is setting up military liaisons within your local police department. They are providing law enforcement with armored vehicles, the Orwellian LRAD devices from the G-20, and soon we may see the Active Denial microwave guns deployed in our cities.

As one lone voice in the wilderness, I thank anyone who faced down the state-sanctioned oppression and persecution in Pittsburgh and Rochester. It seems likely that this is only the beginning, as we know the New World Order has prescribed austerity and tyranny for the American people. Forget about Democrats versus Republicans. Third party candidates should be considered, but mainly we must focus on an individual's record. And if they have no clear record, FORGET THEM! We need pro-liberty candidates for local, state, and federal office. A nation without the Federal Reserve and without the Department of Homeland Security could once again reclaim the title: the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

Darwinism vs. Constitutional Government

Government is not reason, it is not eloquence -- it is force. -George Washington

We, the People, have rejected a constitutionally mandated rule of law, and have instead capitulated to a system of the survival of the fittest. America's founders, most of whom were steeped in Judeo-Christian teachings and those of classical liberalism, understood that every life has value, and each citizen has a right to equal protection under the law. Sadly, our immoral citizenry has acquiesced to a system that judges a person's value solely on their ability to make money. As a result, our institutions of government, higher education, and civil society itself accept the domination of a tiny monied elite. Our fiat, debt-based monetary system is operated at their behest. Our government works to fulfill their bleak vision of the future, regulating the people to their benefit.

Whether this Illuminati amount to a dozen families, four thousand oligarchs, or a class of a few million planetary bureaucrats- they are vastly outnumbered and could be brought to justice for their crimes against humanity. We do not have to live in perpetual debt and servitude! The problem, it seems, is that most any person of even modest influence (ie. any prominent voice or salary) perceives themselves to be part of the power structure; a member of the establishment. This, of course, is absurd! It is a symptom of a godless society, where personal and professional success lead to an ignorant love of self above all else. If we accept the Darwinian concepts of evolution and the "survival of the fittest", rejecting God as the creator, then we will have no compassion for the less fortunate. After all, if the most powerful among us have an absolute and scientific right to dominate, then we have no need for any rule of law because might equals right.

Sadly, there seems to be no place for biblical Christianity in today's society. Disinformation is rampant, and the mainstream media promotes globalist propaganda and a culture of mindless entertainment rather than actual investigative journalism. Conservative talk radio hosts like Limbaugh, Levin, Savage, etc. speak the truth about the ills of big government, but they support the establishment in other ways: exhibiting a general disdain for the poor and downtrodden, and practice hero-worship of the police and military. The recent G20 police riots in Pittsburgh exemplify the drummed up fear of 'anti-conformists.' What is more threatening?: A dozen skinny teenagers dressed in black and wearing bandannas, or thousands of stomping storm troopers, secret police, and camouflaged paramilitaries exercising for war against the American people. This is completely irrational! And for what?, to protect a system that has already stolen our standard of living, and in our names created a debt that can never be repaid!

They use our own tax money to oppress us, bringing law enforcement from around the country as a show of force against individualism. Their tactics of intimidation provoke outrage in sovereign individuals, who can still think for themselves. Unfortunately, the majority believes that the robocops are protecting their interests. Meanwhile, their fate will ultimately be the same as the brave dissenters who faced down the wicked henchmen of the state: with their sonic weapons and chemical agents. You fools, it's like standing guard at your bedroom door while the burglar has his way with your wives or daughters!
