“The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.” -Samuel Adams, American revolutionary hero
E-mail was heavy from my last column, America’s Law Enforcement: Time for Hard Questions. While I cannot read all the mail because of volume, I do try to read as many as I can when time permits. A few Timid Tommy’s said, “Devvy, stop talking like that, “they” are going to throw you in jail!”
First, the content of my column is covered under politically protected free speech. Those who birthed this republic wanted the newly created federal government to understand that Americans would be free to criticize government and those in public office. They wanted to make sure that for all the generations to come, we the people would be free to speak our minds because we are all born free.
Second, as my good friend, Larry Becraft, is so fond of saying: slap the king, expect to die and that is exactly what happened to those visionary men who took it upon themselves to carve out a Declaration of Independence. They fought for it and then formulated a truly magnificent form of government: a constitutional republic – not a democracy. And, yes, they died. Not just prominent figures like Nathan Hale, but the common man, too. Most of the Founding Fathers were of the moneyed class with more to lose than the common man in material possessions. But, once they were able to articulate their ideas and the cry for freedom and liberty began to ring throughout the colonies, the common man was willing to slap the king for the cause.
Women and children also were a key component during the fight for freedom. Few have ever heard the story of Sybil Ludington’s Ride, but I cherish my copy of a book chronicling her bravery:
“Sybil Ludington was the oldest of 12 children of Colonel Henry Ludington. During the American Revolution, her father was the commander of a volunteer regiment of men who lived in the country surrounding Fredericksburg, New York. On April 26, 1777, the British Redcoats captured and burned Danbury, Connecticut. When word reached her father’s house, Sybil Ludington, at the age of 16, rode out through the night alone to call out the volunteer militia. Because of her heroism, the militia was able to march to Danbury and oust the British army.”
The Timid Tommy’s need to understand that what’s happening in America isn’t just some silly political game, it is the real life struggle to save this republic from being flushed down the pages of history. Tyranny cannot exist without support from the military and law enforcement. Tyrants are cowards so they use force administered by paid dragoons. Without that critical support tyranny fails, which is why law enforcement in this country need to hear from we the people. They need to understand the bigger picture and we must be the harbinger of the facts. That’s why I did my law enforcement column and I urge people to provide a copy to their local law enforcement.
The illegals invasion is the hot button for the ’06 elections. In the past few months, the rats in Congress are all suddenly appearing on media friendly talk shows blustering about a serious problem they have ignored for two decades. Pimping for votes after the invasion has reached critical mass. Why hasn’t Bush lifted a finger to close the border between these united States of America and Mexico? Because he doesn’t want to. Bush doesn’t want the border closed because, just like his father who pledged America’s allegiance to the new world order and the communist UN, the son’s agenda is also one world government. Everything he has done since taking office has been in furtherance of that goal:
Internationalizing U.S. Roads by Phyllis Spivey:
“NAFTA Superhighways. “Interstate 69, for example, is a planned 1600 mile national highway connecting Mexico, the U.S., and Canada. Eight states are involved in the project: Once completed, I-69 will extend from Port Huron, Michigan to the Texas/Mexico border. In Texas, I-69 will be part of the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC) project a 4000 mile network of existing and new toll roads — which will create the largest private highway system in America. Interstate 35, also called the Oklahoma to Mexico/Gulf Coast element, will be developed as part of the TTC.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to connect the dots: open those borders and merge Mexico, Canada and America as one unit. No? How many Americans know anything about the Organization of American States? Take a look at their mission statement here. The same old “democracy” garbage for “The Americas.” The “Inter-American Democratic Charter” was ratified on September 11, 2001. In the “Inter-American Democratic Charter: Documents and Interpretations” section, note this language:
“The peoples of the Americas have a right to democracy and their governments have an obligation to promote and defend it.”
Our legal form of government is NOT a democracy. We are a constitutional republic. Our Founding Fathers hated democracy and warned against it. Bush promotes democracy here and abroad. He deliberately promotes failure and mob rule, aided and abetted by the fools in Congress and the “mainstream media,” all owned by one world government proponents.
Another section from this insidious charter: “Any person or group of persons who consider that their human rights have been violated may present claims or petitions to the Inter-American system for the promotion and protection of human rights in accordance with its established procedures.”
Inter-American system? In other words, our judicial system and our sovereignty are no longer valid. Those who have not studied communism cannot recognize this doublespeak. The FBI has “training centers” in Moscow for “…law enforcement initiatives related to the Russian Federation. Since 1994, the caseload of our Legal Attache office in Moscow has grown from 35 cases to 375 cases. In addition, to date, some 660 investigative leads from domestic U.S. FBI field offices have been covered in Moscow and elsewhere in Russia with the assistance of our Russian law enforcement counterparts.” Perhaps people will now understand why Congress once again, passed a grossly unconstitutional foreign-aid appropriations bill on Nov. 4, 2005, which contains a $4 million expenditure using borrowed money from the FED to fund Russian political parties. Remember the words of Rowan Gaither:
“….we operate here out of directives that emanate from the White House. And the subject of those directives are, we are to use our grant-making powers to alter life in the United States so that we can be merged with the Soviet Union.” Rowan Gaither, Joint Committee on Regional Government hearings, Sept. 26, 1978
There is also an FBI “training center” in Budapest. There is no authorization in Art. 1, Sec. 8 for the people’s treasury to be robbed to provide training or law enforcement exercises in foreign countries. But, under a one world government, there will be no more sovereign nation states.
Does anyone need a bigger picture? No more borders, destroy our job force through unconstitutional treaties, suppress wages for Americans by allowing 20 million illegals to flood this country and be hired by “American” companies for cheap wages. Think Bush isn’t aware of this? Think certain members of Congress and governors know nothing about this? Oh, please. Phyllis Spivey’s two critical columns: Dispelling the Myths in the Ownership Society and Riverside County – Development United Nations Style. All of this is going on right under the noses of a disinterested, dumbed down population.
Neither Bush nor the GOP controlled Congress (since January 1995) have rolled back one single unconstitutional law or treaty enacted over the past 60 years. NAFTA and GATT have destroyed our three most critical job bases: agriculture, manufacturing, industrial. 95% of Americans no longer produce anything, they push bacon chicken wraps or shuffle paper for foreign governments. Bush strong armed Republican sell outs in Congress to get the unconstitutional CAFTA passed. Another threat to not only our sovereignty. The FTAA, it will put the final nail in the coffin.
Bush supporters can stay in denial if it’s more comfortable, but America’s unconstitutional invasion of Iraq – an undeclared war – will fail miserably just like the rest of these experiments in “nation building.” This is not a criticism of the job our troops are doing, it is based on past history. There isn’t a scintilla of authority in Art. 1, Sec. 8 which allows the people’s treasury to be robbed and pillaged to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to war against any country, invade it, kill those who don’t agree with the U.S. and then turn around and dictate how a new government is going to be set up, monitor elections, build schools, hospitals and train armies. This invasion is the most grotesque misuse of our military I have ever seen. On December 20, 2005, the media reported there was still political fighting between the Shittes and Sunni’s and that “the White House wasn’t pleased.” Does anyone see what’s wrong with this picture?
The hysteria over criticizing Bush’s war mongering has nothing to do with the performance of our troops. They are already in danger the minute they step off the plane or ship into Iraq. It is one of the most dangerous places on this earth. Those they war against will try to kill them regardless of whether or not we the people criticize Bush’s policy or embrace it. It is kill or be killed. How quickly people forget that the very same conservatives who are now defending Bush’s war mongering are the very same people who criticized Clinton when he unconstitutionally and without a declaration of war invaded Kosovo:
From By John Hassell, April 7, 1999:
“Even as allied warplanes streak across the Balkan skies, another air war is
going on, right here in the United States. The target? President Clinton. Still bristling with moral outrage over the Monica Lewinsky scandal, the conservative hosts who dominate talk radio are now attacking Clinton for sending the U.S. military into Kosovo. ” But the bombing in Kosovo presents a dilemma for conservative hosts. How do you oppose the war and criticize the commander in chief without seeming anti-military or, worse, unpatriotic?
“We find ourselves in a very awkward situation, because usually conservatives are in the forefront of supporting military action,” said Chuck Baldwin, a Pensacola, Fla., radio host. “But that doesn’t mean that we just roll over and accept what’s happening.”
“Nearly every conservative talk radio personality of national reputation — Rush
Limbaugh, Ollie North, Roger Hedgecock, Baldwin and Liddy, to name a few — has opposed the war in Kosovo.
“At the same time, these hosts have bent over backward in trying to make sure no one thinks they are soft on dictators, dovish on military action or less than fully supportive of American troops……..On the air, [Roger] Hedgecock has argued passionately against committing American air power to the Balkan conflict. “If our bombing is causing more problems than we are solving, then maybe by stopping the bombing we can undo some of the damage,” he said. “Stop the war!”
“When Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic announced yesterday that his forces would observe a unilateral cease-fire through Sunday, Limbaugh said it offered NATO a way out. “Let’s cut our losses and accept this cease-fire,” Limbaugh said. He added sarcastically, “Give the President a Congressional Medal of Honor and let’s get back home!”
Does any of the above sound familiar today? Think our soldiers in Clinton’s quagmire in Kosovo were in greater danger while all these popular conservative media types were hammering him? It’s okay for conservatives to rip Clinton a new one every day for years over Kosovo while our soldiers were engaged in death battles with their necks on the line everyday. Conservatives didn’t like that undeclared, unconstitutional invasion. But when it’s a war they approve of and you express your opposition, you are excoriated. Seems a bit hypocritical to me.
The American people are behind our troops 100% every day, but we want them to come home and stop working to establish a one world government:
“The U.S. military welcomes additional funds for special units. The Pentagon continues its downsizing in preparation for the New World Order.” Former Asst. Secretary of Defense and former Director of the CIA, John Deutch, December 1, 1994, McNeil/Lehrer News Hour
“We are on the cutting edge of the New World Order here in Bosnia.” U.S. Army Major Bushyread, May 8, 1996, CBS Evening News with Dan Rather
This unconstitutional invasion of Iraq isn’t about freeing the people of Iraq, but to conquer and set up a democracy on the way to breaking up that country and controlling the oil sector. Denial is a dangerous state of mind. We the people must open our eyes to painful truths. We must open them, for to remain blind to the truth, is to dig the grave of this nation. Ben Franklin said: “When men make sheep of themselves, the wolves will eat you.” America is over run with flocks.
We the people elect our public servants to do the job within the constraints of the U.S. Constitution. When a president – even in time of an undeclared, unconstitutional war, steps outside his authority, we the people have the right, no, the absolute duty to question a foreign policy that serves the global banking cartel. Our military is for our security here at home. This whole war on terrorism was birthed on lies starting with 9/11. Teddy Roosevelt said it the best:
“The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that
we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else.”
Bush supporters, who are too afraid to believe he has betrayed them, can continue to parse words, but there can be no denying the legal facts. There was never a declaration of war because the Constitution is no longer an obstacle to the lawbreakers in Washington, DC – and forget this sanctimonious BS-ing about UN resolutions:
“The dirty little secret is that both houses of Congress are irrelevant.” Reich cut to the chase when he said that “America’s domestic policy is now being run by Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve and America’s foreign policy is now being run by the International Monetary Fund [IMF].” And, “…when the president decides to go to war, he no longer needs a declaration of war from Congress.” Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under Billy Clinton, January 7, 1999 issue of USA Today. So, Clinton went ahead and wagged the dog and send our troops to Bosnia.
At the time of Bush’s invasion of Iraq, CFR point dog in the House, Rep. Henry Hyde, [R-Il] stated that “declaring war is anachronistic, it isn’t done anymore…” During the same time period, darling of the deaf, dumb and blind “liberals,” Ranking Minority Member Tom Lantos, [D-Ca] called the declaration of war “frivolous and mischievous.” So without a formal declaration of war and built on a mountain of lies to justify his unlawful action, Bush ordered our military to invade Iraq.
While I am no fan of the “mainstream media” if even half of this is true, I would like to see Bush supporters spin this one:
How U.S. Fell Under the Spell of ‘Curveball’
November 20, 2005, LA Times.com
Bob Drogin and John Goetz
“The Iraqi informant’s German handlers say they had told U.S. officials that his information was ‘not proven,’ and were shocked when President Bush and Colin L. Powell used it in key prewar speeches.
“BERLIN/ The German intelligence officials responsible for one of the most important informants on Saddam Hussein’s suspected weapons of mass destruction say that the Bush administration and the CIA repeatedly exaggerated his claims during the run-up to the war in Iraq.
“Five senior officials from Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service, or BND, said in interviews with The Times that they warned U.S. intelligence authorities that the source, an Iraqi defector code-named Curveball, never claimed to produce germ weapons and never saw anyone else do so.
“According to the Germans, President Bush mischaracterized Curveball’s information when he warned before the war that Iraq had at least seven mobile factories brewing biological poisons. Then-Secretary of State Colin L. Powell also misstated Curveball’s accounts in his prewar presentation to the United Nations on Feb. 5, 2003, the Germans said.
“Curveball’s German handlers for the last six years said his information was often vague, mostly secondhand and impossible to confirm.
“This was not substantial evidence,” said a senior German intelligence official. “We made clear we could not verify the things he said.”
“The German authorities, speaking about the case for the first time, also said that their informant suffered from emotional and mental problems. “He is not a stable, psychologically stable guy,” said a BND official who supervised the case. “He is not a completely normal person,” agreed a BND analyst. The full column is found here.
Bush has and will continue to use his endless “war on terror” as the burning match to the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Sadly for America, there are no statesmen in Washington, just crooks, cowards and criminals masquerading as your friends, there to hand out free prescription pills to keep you medicated, more and more government jobs because they have destroyed our most important job bases and building a police state in this country to rival Joseph Stalin.
The colonials, the first Americans, were willing to slap the king even though they knew it could cost them their lives. They did it anyway. They did it for freedom. They did it for their women and children. They did it for future generations – us. Those colonials were a very special people, especially George Washington. An amazing man whose wisdom was profound for such a young man with heavy responsibilities. He said:
“My ardent desire is, and my aim has been…to comply strictly with all our engagements, foreign and domestic; but to keep the U States free from political connexions with every other Country. To see that they may be independent of all, and under the influence of none. In a word, I want an American character, that the powers of Europe may be convinced we act for ourselves and not for others; this is in my judgment, the only way to be respected abroad and happy at home.” Letter to Patrick Henry, October 9, 1775
This is just the tip of the iceberg. America is in meltdown. Tens of millions of Americans don’t give a second thought to sovereignty, freedom or the sacrifices made by those who gave up their tomorrows so we could have ours, but I do. Forget the millions of Americans surfing off the shores of Miami last week, snow skiing in Tahoe, walking the malls for “holiday” presents, getting drunk, drowning in “recreational” drugs, going to see a play on Broadway or just hangin’ out in front of the tube. We the people who know the truth will march forward, the timid can remain hiding behind fancy word smithing and cosmetic patriotism.
At the very end of a magnificent movie, The Patriot, which superbly portrays the ugliness of war, Mel Gibson gives these final words:
“With the war ending and our militia disbanding, I take measure of what we have lost and what we have won. My hope and prayer is that the sacrifices borne by so many will spawn and fulfill the promise of our new nation.
Will we throw all of this away with nary a whimper?
God bless us as we the people fight to protect and preserve the Constitution of these united States of America, for freedom, liberty and all that is right and good.
