20 Drills that Prove the DHS’ Official New Enemy is the American People

Drills for the Combat Marksmanship Program at Camp Pendleton, Calif.

Drills for the Combat Marksmanship Program at Camp Pendleton, Calif.

Out of 47 “scenarios” being practiced by first responders during Urban Shield 2013 this October 25 – 28 in the San Francisco Bay Area, at least 20 of them are “domestic” – either stated explicitly, or implied (see below in BOLD CAPS) – and possibly more.

Overall, the scenarios vary widely in scope – up to and including “odor investigation” – but the “domestic terrorists” are generally characterized as being anything from “anarchists” (Tea Partiers? Christians? Patriots?) to “homegrown” terrorists (recent American-Moslem converts duped into FBI-sting operations?)

Interesting to note that, as of this writing, the English “Urban Shield” Wikipedia entry has disappeared… but you can still get it in French. (Too bad for you if you don’t read French.)

However, there is still a brief mention of Urban Shield in the English Wikipedia entry for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office (ASCO).

According to Wikipedia’s ASCO entry, Urban Shield is the largest urban “SWAT” exercise in America. Always held in autumn, it provides “opportunities” for first-responder teams from all over the nation to train in what appears to be mostly “terrorist” scenarios.

(As an aside – since I scan the news feeds daily – I’ve been noticing variations of ALL these “scenarios” making the news on a regular basis, including recently locking down an entire school district in Richmond, California due to an “odor investigation”… for an odor which turned out to be from a smelly barge starting its engine several miles outside the city limits. Oh, the hysteria.)

You should also be pleased and comforted to note that among the many “public/private partners” (and corporate sponsors) taking part in this year’s Urban Shield will be the Boy Scouts, FedEx and Verizon Wireless.

And, in addition to the 18 federal agencies listed (including Louisiana State University?), there will also be 12 foreign countries keeping us safe from domestic terrorists: Israel, Brazil, Guam, Israeli Yamam, Norway, Switzerland, France, Jordan, Bahrain, Singapore, Canada and Qatar.

With all this “help” – in what is turning out to be a huge multi-billion dollar industry – it makes you wonder who is keeping us safe from the “helpers?”

Leaked Video: FEMA Preparing Military Police For Gun Confiscations and Martial Law

Kit Daniels
Infowars.com
October 26, 2013

A MP in the U.S. Army leaked this video of a briefing with FEMA officials who openly discuss gun confiscations and the loss of our rights under martial law.

“We’ve lost all control when the military moves in on your street,” the official said. “They [FEMA] are now saying you have no more rights, you are going inside your houses.”

“They did that in Katrina, right,” he continued later in the briefing, referring to gun confiscation. “They just go on and take away people’s guns.”

“Yeah, which I think is bull****,” the MP responded.

“You are going to cling to your rifle,” the official said. “They can pry it from your cold, dead hands.”

We’ve already seen this before after Hurricane Katrina in 2005:

Sen. Manchin: Background Checks “Expand Second Amendment”

Kurt Nimmo
Infowars.com
May 8, 2013

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is trying to get another background check bill through the Senate following last month’s defeat of a bill he introduced with Republican Senator Patrick Toomey.

“I truly believe the background check bill is possible to get passed,” Manchin told CBS News on Tuesday.

He also tried to sell the idea that laws restricting and regulating the Second Amendment actually expand it. Manchin said it is the job of Democrats in Congress to educate Americans who exercise the right to own firearms about this new interpretation of the Second Amendment.

“We are going to have to make some adjustments to it and find out where the comfort zone is, but what we need to do really is educate the law-abiding gun owners like myself, people that might belong to the NRA or other gun organizations that don’t believe this is a threat to their Second Amendment. This bill, not only protects your Second Amendment, it expands your Second Amendment,” Manchin told CBS This Morning.

“We had some people who were concerned that it would infringe on inter-family transfers, but it doesn’t at all,” he said. “We are going to clarify that language and anytime that you transfer to family — whether it is directly or online –it will be basically not subjected to the background check because that is a person transaction with a family member.”

Manchin’s government-run universal background system is designed to shut down gun shows and restrict commercial sales of firearms. It has little to do with Uncle Harry selling a shotgun to his nephew. It is about the government knowing how many firearms you own and where they are so they can be confiscated.

“Some of the proposals, like for example – universal background checks – would allow the federal government to surveil law-abiding citizens who exercise their Constitutional rights,” Senator Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah, said from the Senate floor last month. “One of the provisions we expect to see in the bill based on what we saw in the Judiciary Committee – on which I sit – would allow the Attorney General of the United States (Eric Holder) to promulgate regulations that could lead to a national registry system for guns.”

A Brief and Bloody History of Gun Control
by Anthony Gucciardi
StoryLeak

Recently by Anthony Gucciardi: Fluoride Detox: Ousted as Poison, Here’s How To Get It Out of Your System

You or someone you know may see guns as deadly killing machines that are simply to blame for a large volume of homicides across the nation, but a brief look at the history of gun control actually offers a new perspective into the application of guns on an entirely new level. While normalcy bias (a thinking pattern that causes an individual to underestimate the potential of any event or situation due to currently enjoying a normal and cushy lifestyle) can oftentimes lead individuals away from the reality of history, countless citizens around the world have been highlighting the repetitive history that follows gun control.

In this breakdown, we will be examining a lot of numbers and extracting them to get some real answers. Then, we’ll see the source of these numbers and whether or not gun control regulations are reducing or increasing overall crime rates in heavily controlled areas.

The first thing to touch upon, and perhaps most relevant to our modern society, is how deadly firearms really are. First of all, let us examine the factors that are responsible for deaths within the United States. This will put death counts into perspective and allow us to go deeper into the firearm-related deaths themselves later. Examining data from the CDC for the leading causes of death and including death statistics from the FBI regarding homicides, we find the following numbers:

Leading US Killers

  • Annual deaths from heart disease based on CDC data: 597,689
  • Cancer deaths from CDC data: 574,743
  • Chronic lower respiratory diseases (CDC): 138,080
  • Stroke deaths (CDC): 129,476
  • Deaths from accidents, unintentional injuries (CDC): 120,859
  • Alzheimer’s disease deaths per year (CDC): 83,494
  • Diabetes (CDC): 69,071
  • Influenza deaths each year (CDC): 50,097
  • Suicide deaths (CDC): 38,364
  • Overall weapons deaths (2009 FBI): 13,636
  • Overall firearm deaths (2009 FBI): 9,146

So there we have the overall death data that comes compiled from the CDC website mixed with the FBI website table that goes as far as 2009. As you can see, the overall firearm deaths are 9,000 per year. If you’ve been following some of the mainstream media rhetoric surrounding guns, you might have thought the number would be at least over 100,000 — perhaps even higher than diabetes or suicide. The reality is that it is quite low overall, despite what you may have been told. But it’s still 9,146, so let’s now break down this figure to get the specific factors.

Of the 9,146 firearm deaths:

  • 6,452 were from hanguns
  • 348 from rifles
  • 418 from shotguns
  • 94 from other guns
  • 1,834 from unknown guns

This is where the numbers cut through even more false information sent forth by the mainstream media. Rifles have been demonized as powerful tools of homicide that are to blame for a large number of yearly deaths, but as it turns out only 348 per year are actually killed using rifles. Now of that number we must ask “how many are using legal weapons and non-gang related?” And furthermore, how many of these murders occur in ‘gun free’ cities? We’ll get to what we know on that shortly.

First, I want to utilize some further statistics from the overall weapons deaths provided by the FBI for 2009. The number, which totals 13,636, also breaks down into several components that will likely be highly shocking when compared to the broken down gun data. Especially when considering that the apparent ‘epidemic’ levels of rifle deaths actually don’t even compare to stabbings, blunt objects like hammers, or even bare hands and feet.

Knives, Hammers, Hands Kill More than Rifles & Shotguns

These FBI statistics really deflate the argument that rifles are ultimate killing machines when you look at how human hands are actually much more dangerous in terms of the sheer numbers. In fact, the digits really deflate the entire movement to ban rifles by realizing that by the same logic bats, hammers, knives, and even hands should therefore be heavily regulated. Going by the numbers alone, all hands should be considered lethal weapons. Of course we know that all hands are not used to kill innocents, just as all guns are not used to kill innocents.

Let’s take a look at the FBI data for the homicides committed via non-firearm sources to get an idea of how it compares to the death toll of key firearms like rifles and shotguns:

  • Knives and cutting tools accounted for 1,825 deaths in 2009, 1,477 more than rifles
  • Clubs, hammers, and other blunt objects totaled 611 in 2009, 263 more than rifles
  • Hands, fists, and feet killed 801 in 2009, 453 more than rifles

At this point one must ask why banning clubs, hammers, and knives is any different than gun control. Beyond that, it would actually be statistically more reasonable when considering the death toll. Even hands and feet would be considered lethal weapons that would require regulation when examining the 801 death count each year. Instead of enacting extreme legislation to regulate these items, however, we generally discount them as irregular incidents that are more to be blamed on the wielder rather than the item itself.

A hammer is usually seen as a tool used in construction, home improvement, or other constructive tasks. A knife is seen mainly as a kitchen instrument. A gun, on the other hand, is oftentimes portrayed as a weapon of non-defense murder as a opposed to a weapon used in the defense of self, family, and innocents. Notice that both purposes are utilized with all of these ‘tools’, it is simply in the perception of what they are that changes. The perception that is created through hysterical mainstream media reports that highlight isolated cases of mass shootings and other events.

Many such shootings are also occurring in ‘gun-free’ areas or strict gun control regions, where access to a gun is supposed to be extremely challenging or impossible. Nevertheless, law abiding citizens are the ones affected while unscrupulous shooters and criminals can access illegal guns with ease.

The Reality Behind ‘Gun Free Zones’ and Gun Bans

Yet another example of rhetoric verses reality, gun free zones and city-wide gun bans actually do not deflate violent crime as you will see below. Notice that below we are examining the statistics, not the emotional ties or opinions relating to gun control. The media uses shooting sprees to prop up the concept that gun bans and gun free zones will somehow stop a deranged killer who has zero regard for the law, when in reality we know this is not a real solution.

Painted signs reading ‘gun free zone’ and gun control legislation that really only affects law-abiding citizens does not prevent mass shootings, as we have seen evidenced by more than one shooting incident. Both the Aurora shooting at the Colorado movie theater dubbed the ‘Batman shooting’ and the most recent Sandy Hook incident in Connecticut both occurred in areas with heavy gun regulation. Amazingly, the Batman shooter actually traveled to the one movie theater in the area that actually did not permit lawful citizens to carry a concealed weapon. According to Dr. John R. Lott in an interview with Newsmax,

”…the one he picked was the only one of those movie theaters that banned people taking permit-concealed handguns into that theater.”

In both of these incidents law-abiding citizens were not properly armed to protect themselves against a criminal with a gun, and law enforcement (which actually is being shorted on ammunition and weapons themselves due to heavy demand among looming gun bans) can only respond so quickly.

Perhaps one of the most saddening examples of a gun free zone turned bloody, however, is the Fort Hood massacre. Covered extensively years ago, Islamic extremist Major Nidal Malik Hasan murdered 12 United States soldiers, 1 Army civilian employee, and wounded around 30-38 others in a ‘gun free zone’. This was, of course, inside a United States military base — where guns are not allowed to be carried by soldiers. These soldiers, who could at any instant be shipped off to another nation to wage war against other troops with automatic weapons, tanks, and aircraft, were gunned down by a single lunatic amid a failed unarmed defense.

More soldiers would have died if it were not for an armed security guard.

But what about the overall national implications of gun free zones and heavily regulated areas? Also what about the international implications, as some countries have installed large scale gun bans that are similar to many US cities on a grand scale. Well, first it’s important for us to establish the general trend of US crime to begin with. This includes the overall number of violent crime offenses that we can observe using violent crime data supplied by the FBI statistics available on the FBI website.

Let us take a look at the graph below which shows the general trend of overall violent crime offense figures from 2007 to 2011 (the years in which such stats are available):

fbi violent crime

What these stats tell us is that violent crime has been in rapid decline over the past several years by a considerable amount. In other words, despite much of a fuss being made over the apparent necessity to ban guns due to violent crime, the statistics show that it has actually been on the massive decline.

Now in order to compare this to the resulting crime stats that follow the implementation of gun control laws, we need to examine a chart that demonstrates this relationship. For this, we turn to the Department of Justice (Justice.gov), which offers a graph containing figures that help us to understand the link between gun ownership and crime stat fluctuations. As you can see from the chart below, the increased amount of gun ownership throughout the years (which has been quite dramatic) ia known to lead to a sharp decline in violent crime (as can be seen between 1995 and 2003):

department of justic ecrime vs guns

The DOJ chart, as you can see for yourself, spans 40 years and shows that violent crime has plummeted as the number of guns in the United States per 1,000 citizens has gone up exponentially. It would seem quite the opposite would be true if guns were truly dangerous in the hands of law-abiding citizens.

We can even narrow down this area further by examining areas in which gun bans have gone into effect and taking a look at the results. We have established that firearm homicides are much lower than many think, that more guns actually statistically suggests less crime, and now it is time to figure out where the concentration of many gun murders are and why. This is how we take a real approach to the issue and determining a solution.

Chicago is a perfect example of a city that has enacted a ban on all handguns with the minor exception of those who had previous gun registrations before that time. Going into law in 1982, we can see how Chicago’s murder rate spun out of control following the extreme regulations, while the rest of the United States (as we documented in the previous graph) saw a decline in murder rates as guns surged:

chicago handgun murders

Following the handgun ban in Chicago, crime increased by 40%. This trend continued for decades, with police revealing that 96% of firearm murders in Chicago were actually committed by handguns. Handguns, of course, had been banned for decades. As it turns out, criminals were getting a hold of firearms with intent to commit crime while normal citizens were not able to carry a firearm to defend themselves. The criminal, in this scenario, has a distinct advantage as they know that their law-abiding targets cannot carry a weapon in self defense.

It’s Not About Guns: Gun Control Is People Control

Anthony Gucciardi
Infowars.com
April 29, 2013

Gun free zones don’t lower crime rates or even prevent mass shootings, so what do they do? Gun control allows megalomaniacal politicians to exercise control over law-abiding citizens through unconstitutional legislation that paves the way towards eroding the Bill of Rights at large.

The simple fact of the matter is that the attacks on the Second Amendment should concern you, even if you don’t own a gun. In fact, I am definitely not someone you would consider a ‘gun nut’. Far from it, I actually grew up with the impression that guns were killing weapons that the average person would never truly need. After all, you could simply call a gun-wielding police officer if anything went wrong. So what drove me to become passionate on protecting the Second Amendment, even to the point of producing the new documentary Disarmed: A History of Gun Control?

It comes down to the fact that gun control and the attacks on the Second Amendment amount to much more than guns themselves. In fact, the Second Amendment’s fall will signify the fall of the Constitution at large — the very fabric of the United States. You see if the government can override the Second Amendment, why can’t they override the First Amendment? Or how about the Constitution as a whole? If we can confiscate all modern firearms and override the Constitution through federal or state law, then the Constitution now becomes a secondary piece of paper.

THE POLITICAL DOMINO EFFECT

Now gun control advocates would never want to give up the First Amendment. In fact, virtually everyone who hates the Second Amendment (which is actually an extreme minority blown up by the media) loves the First Amendment. They would tell you that giving up the First Amendment would ruin the country, no one would be granted free speech — our freedom would collapse overnight.

The error here is assuming that we can permit the government, a government full of power-hungry sociopaths, to eradicate one Amendment while assuming we will preserve the others. How could anyone think this? The answer is that they aren’t thinking, they’re responding to events that the media broadcasts to them in a certain light. Mass shootings in schools and movie theaters have pushed the mantra that it’s the guns that are to blame and nothing else.

You’re not supposed to ponder on why Batman shooter James Holmes traveled out of his way to the one movie theater that did not allow attendees to bring in their legal concealed carry weapons. You’re not supposed to ask about the fact that the Sandy Hook shooting occurred in one of the most extreme ‘gun free’ zones in the nation. You’re especially not supposed to investigate into why Columbine shooter Dylan Klebold was so afraid of the looming concealed carry law in the area. Instead, you’re supposed to emotionally react to the issue of guns. And from that reaction, your response is not supposed to be logical but emotional.

It’s not logically to think that destroying the Second Amendment and eroding our rights to own a weapon will not cause a political domino effect that leads to the dismantling of our Bill of Rights. No, it’s an emotional response that says ‘ban the guns’ without logical thought. Even examining the statistics reveals this to be the case as well.

FORMER OBAMA SECRET SERVICE: IT’S PEOPLE CONTROL, NOT GUN CONTROL

Former Obama Administration Secret Service member Dan Bongino stated it correctly when he explained in a passionate speech that gun control is not about controlling guns. Instead, it’s about ‘people control’. After withdrawing from the Secret Service without retirement pay to inform the public regarding gun control, Dan Bongino reveals that he is also not a ‘gun nut’ as some might think. It simply comes down to protecting our rights.

Big Sis Coordinating Gun Confiscations

DHS collaborating with NY state officials to target Second Amendment rights

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
April 15, 2013

The Department of Homeland Security is collaborating with New York State government officials to confiscate guns belonging to people who are deemed, often erroneously, to have a mental condition, according to radio host Tom Bauerle.

“NY State Talk Radio Host Tom Bauerle discussed on his program that several sources inside NY State Govt have told him that the Dept of Homeland Security played an active role in meeting and collaborating with NY State Officials to develop and implement the confiscation scheme that targeted David Lewis and an as yet unknown number of others,” reports Ammoland.com.

Bauerle is a daily host on WBEN, based in Buffalo, New York.

Back in March it also emerged that the DHS was working with the Department of Revenue to collect information on gun owners in Missouri.

The fact that the DHS is coordinating with state government officials on gun confiscations is particularly unnerving given recent developments.

As we reported last week, the federal agency is testing a number of different drones at a scientific research facility in Oklahoma that have sensors capable of detecting whether a person is armed, stoking concerns that the federal agency is planning on using UAVs to harass gun owners.

The DHS has committed to purchasing more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the course of the last year, along with thousands of armored vehicles. While Americans are having their gun rights eviscerated, the government is seemingly arming itself to the teeth.

Under the NY SAFE Act, anyone considered as having a mental condition can have their firearms seized by police and their Second Amendment rights suspended. The law encourages therapists, doctors, nurses and social workers to report patients they determine may engage in conduct that may result in harm to self or others.

Last week, State police in Erie County, New York admitted they had wrongly confiscated the guns of 35-year-old college librarian David Lewis, who was prescribed anti-anxiety medication by his doctor yet was targeted after being falsely labeled as having a mental condition that could lead to violence.

Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs admitted that police called him to clarify that they had wrongly enforced a pistol permit suspension on Lewis, highlighting the fundamental flaws in the newly passed law.

“I think that first and foremost, it stems from a flawed law that was passed so quickly without forethought on how something would be implemented,” said Jacobs, adding, “Until the mental health provisions are fixed, these mistakes will continue to happen.”

Lewis is now taking legal action, with his attorneys noting that protections should have been in force under The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule, which establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

As we also highlighted recently, numerous veterans are being forced to undergo “psychiatric evaluations” before having their guns confiscated, in another example of how the Veterans Administration is accelerating a purge of armed ex-servicemembers in accordance with a federal government demonization campaign that has labeled vets domestic terrorists.

The NY Safe act is just one stepping stone to total firearms confiscation, an end goal that gun control advocates have openly admitted.

As we reported last week, Democratic Austin City Council member and potential next mayor Mike Martinez admitted during a speech last weekend that the Obama administration’s long term gun control agenda is focused on banning firearms altogether.

New York Police Confiscating Firearms from People Taking Anti-anxiety Medication

infowars.com

The New York State Police are suspending the handgun permits of people in the state who are prescribed anti-anxiety medication, according to Jim Tresmond of the Tresmond Law Firm in Hamburg, New York. Tresmond Law specializes in firearm litigation.

“We are representing a client right now who is impacted by this onerous activity of the government,” Tresmond told WBEN, a news talk radio station in Buffalo, New York.

“We were flummoxed by this whole matter,” the attorney said. “The HIPPA act is supposed to prevent this kind of thing from happening. It’s a gross invasion of our privacy rights.”

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

Tresmond said the New York State Police are responsible for taking action against legal firearms owners. “Based on information the county received from the New York State Police, they’ve suspended the permits. The State Police instigates the proceedings.”

Section 9.46 of the NY SAFE Act of 2013 authorizes therapists, doctors, nurses and social workers to report patients they determine may engage in conduct that may result in harm to self or others. If a determination is made that the person in question poses a threat, the provision permits the government to confiscate firearms. The provision is a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment and the legal standard of probable cause.

Experts said many mental health providers will likely ignore the provision.

NY SAFE was passed by the New York State Legislature on January 15, 2013, and was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo the same day.

Absolute Tyranny: The Storm Has Arrived

It is a rare occasion when I cannot adequately express my thoughts and feelings with their corresponding words. Words are a crude expression of ones’ Thoughts and Perspectives as words can never adequately describe the depth and breadth of a complete thought. Even the concept I discuss lacks the lexicon required to truly understand it. Instead, an exercise of the concept is required to marry cold knowledge with Real Experience. Study and examine Leonardo Divinchi’s Mona Lisa. Now try to replicate it to One Hundred Percent accuracy. You cannot. Thus you can now comprehend my dilemma.

State Of The Union: Dead and Decomposing

 Our Founding Documents, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, are the physical embodiment of the Spirit of Liberty. The culmination of the Hopes, Dreams, and Blood of those Great Men who sacrificed EVERYTHING for the Freedom and Liberty of their fellow men, is being used as toilet paper by our tyrannical and illegitimate Central Government. Again, an exploration rather than an explanation is in order.

Read The Preamble and examine each Amendment of the Bill of Rights and ask yourself if it still stands. My annotations follow:

The Preamble to The Bill of Rights
Congress of the United States
begun and held at the City of New-York, on
Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

Read As: The States, being a bit paranoid of a powerful Federal Government, require additional reassurance that the following Rights be preserved as involatile to Government authority.

RESOLVED by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the following Articles be proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, as amendments to the Constitution of the United States, all, or any of which Articles, when ratified by three fourths of the said Legislatures, to be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of the said Constitution; viz.

Read As: The Constitution is Sacrosanct, thus changes to it must be approved by Two-Thirds majority of the Congress (House of the People) and a Two-Thirds majority of the Senate (House of the States). OR by constitutional convention with Two-Thirds of the State Legislatures of the Union approving in order for an Amendment to be ratified and become law. This is an extremely difficult procedure and should be taken in a deadly serious manner. Note that none of the twenty-seven amendments have ever been initiated by the States.

ARTICLES in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.

Amendment I – Freedoms, Petitions, Assembly
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or 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.

DEAD Free Speech Zones, Hate Crimes Legislation (thought crimes), Political Correctness (approved speech), Investigation and Prosecution for “Protected” Speech, the Two Party System, requiring permits for public assembly, speech, or pamphleteering. FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism, MIAC Modern Militia Movement’s definitions of “terrorists”

Amendment II – Right to bear arms
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

TERMINAL – Every Patriot knows that Uncle Sam is coming for ALL our guns. Maybe all at once, maybe incrementally as has been the case.

Amendment III – Quartering of soldiers
No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

DEAD – While rarely referenced, this Amendment reaffirms the great importance that our Founders placed upon Rights of Property and Rights to Privacy. In the few cases where this Amendment has been referenced, the War of 1812, it was violated outright and without consequence. The power to quarter was transferred to the president via Executive Order and incorporated into the Fourteenth Amendment, thus ending its significance.

Amendment IV – Search and arrest
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.

DEADThe Patriot Act, NSA Wiretapping, Federal scanning and storing of all digital communications, Smartphone spying, Laptop/PC spying, Data Collecting Fusion Centers, TSA Checkpoints, NYC Stop and Frisk

Amendment V – Rights in criminal cases
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb, nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

DEADNDAA indefinite detention, NDAA Targeted Assassination, Legal Abuse, Legal Corruption, trial By Public Opinion

Amendment VI – Right to a fair trial
In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed; which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defence.

DEAD – NDAA’s suspension of Habeas Corpus: Indefinite Detention and Targeted Assassination, The Court of Public Opinion (the OJ Trial, ), “Secret” evidence that cannot be shared for “National Security” reasons, “Legal Abuse” via manipulation of the Legal System.

Amendment VII – Rights in civil cases
In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

DEAD – Civil Law and Procedures have become so twisted and convoluted as to make the entire process open for manipulation and outright thievery. Good Law is under eternal assault from Bad Law, Foreign Law, Precedent, Legal Opinion, and PUBLIC Opinion; resulting in the erosion of Common Sense and the promotion of a Cannibalistic Legal frame of mind.

Amendment VIII – Bail, fines, punishment
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

DEADTaser OK’d for Obedience Compliance, Mandatory Sentencing, Racial Disparity in Prison Demographics,

Amendment IX – Rights retained by the People
The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

DEAD – This idea being that Government cannot use any Right to nullify another, nor can government deny Rights because they were not specifically listed in the Bill of Rights. It means that all power not specifically designated to government lays in the hands of the people. Today’s illegitimate government, on the other hand, presumes that it holds ALL Rights with We The People having only the Rights we are sanctioned to have. Our present government exists in a situation that is a total reversal of its intent. Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao also thought along the same lines…

Amendment X – States’ rights
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

DEAD – Most States operate with the attitude that power flows from Federal to State, State to County, County to People. This is an inversion of the Truth. The founders understood that in a Free Society power must flow from God to The People, The People grant some power to the State, and the State grants even lesser power to the Federal Government.

The Second Amendment – Our Last Refuge of Freedom

Do you understand the True depth of our situation? The Absolute Last Right that we retain as Free Citizens of the United States of America is a tenuous grip on the Second Amendment. When Dissent is considered a criminal and/or Terrorist act, then the First Amendment is dead, broken, and gone. The last Right, the Only Remaining Right that Americans have is the Second Amendment right to bear arms…and even that one is now at its end.

With the laundry list of broken promises that the Federal Government gave to the States and We The People, how can any sane individual believe that our predatory Federal Government will not do EVERYTHING within their power to remove that One Last Right? If you are unplugged from The Matrix, did you not notice how this “sudden rash” of mass shootings with BIZARRE details quickly and conveniently forgotten, focus solely upon the gun…the Gun, not the shooter, not the fact that all the shooters were drugged up beyond “Yellow Submarine”, not the fact that there always seems to be another Person or Persons of Interest at the scene who quickly become forgotten and relegated to the conspiracy files…really?

Mass shootings are just another tactic, with everything that this government has done, with as many false-flag attacks and ‘inside jobs’ that the United States of America has performed on or allowed to occur against itself…why is this one any different? The many bizarre details surrounding the Aurora Batman Shooting, conveniently forgotten and when referenced relegated to “conspiracy theory”…not a well informed and intelligent individual who has the gift of Memory…no, an absolute nutter because one has the audacity to recognize that 2+2 equals 4 and to speak it aloud!

Simply look at the list of “Liberties” our government has taken against Our Liberties since 9/11 and tell yourself that the United States of America is the Freest nation in the world and stands as our Founders would have us stand. Or, you can realize that our Federal Government has become terminal, like a gangrenous limb that needs to be cut away before it infects and kills the rest of the Union.

Assassination of U.S. Citizens – NDAA

Indefinite detention – NDAA

Restricted Speech – “Free Speech” Zones, Protest and Dissent equated as Terroristic in nature

Arbitrary justice – trial, star chamber, or tribunal – Patriot Act, NDAA

Warrantless searches, wiretaps, reading of Email – Patriot Act, FISA

Secret courts – Patriot Act

Secret Evidence – Patriot Act

Secret Law – Bush and Obama Administrations – Executive Orders signed then made “secret”

Immunity from judicial review – “National Security” trumps all

Continual monitoring of citizens even inside the home – Big Brother is watching you…

Extraordinary Renditions – since “we”can’t torture you Saudi Arabia will do it for us…

Construction of a Stazi-like citizen informer system – See Something Say Something…

Is this REALLY the nation that our Founders dreamt of? I, for one, say Hell and No! This in not a Government that I can ever support nor will ever support because our Masters’ Tyranny makes the Tyranny of King George pale in comparison. How can I honestly endorse a government whose crimes against its own people are greater and more numerous than those of many “evil” Rogue, Warlord-led States? How can we call ourselves the Freest nation on the planet while simultaneously endorsing the secret arrest, indefinite detention, and assassination of those very said Free citizens? We can’t and I won’t.

Sedition Is A Road Less Travelled

I am not calling for violent revolution, at least not now, not until the State starts pulling their guns on We The People…which is quickly and not-so-quietly coming to a doorstep or Checkpoint in YOUR neighborhood. I merely mean to argue that the Federal Government of the United States of America is illegitimate, illegal, and must be replaced. An action that our Founders clearly have called OUR DUTY as American Citizens, thus we were given the First and Second Amendments.

Once the Federal Government broke its promises with We The People and the States of the Union in violating the Bill of Rights, the Federal Government lost its power. Once the promises that were made in the Blood of Patriots were broken, the Federal Government became an Apostate Government that has lost any and all moral authority to rule. Once the Federal Government broke it promises to We The People, then that government can no longer represent We The People for it has betrayed us all.

I call that we ignore the orders of this Tyrannical Apostasy, that we ignore our “Masters” claim to power, and call for a Constitutional Convention of the States to remove our so-called Central Government from power and replace it with a Constitutionally Sound Central Government.

Technically I suppose that actively working for the end of our Federal Government is a Seditious activity whose only punishment can be Death. I accept the charge, but then again, what else is a “Terrorist” as defined by the FBI and DHS supposed to do? I am not going to lay down and die or bend over and let Uncle Sam probe where nary a Proctologist dares to go. The outcome will be a sentence of Death I suppose, but then again, living under this Government the only Right I’ll have left is Death, which will probably be doled out to me for something as innocuous as washing my car on Arbor Day…because somehow I am causing the planet to heat by 0.00000391 degrees, therefore I must die…

An Old Dream Must Die For A New Dream To Come

What I am arguing is that the United States of America, the Freest nation in the world, is no more, it is a hoax that gets celebrated while lady Liberty is gang-raped Family-Style by our President, International Bankers, and the “Creme de la Creme” of the Political Arena. The Dream has Died and We The People allowed it to pass through our silence.

It is time, however, for another Dream to take its place, a New American Dream, one that respects and protects Liberty, Freedom, and Justice. A New American Dream that will codify our Inalienable Rights, Our Bill of Rights, into something Real and tangible and protected from collectivism, socialism, fascism, corporatism, and of course, Career Politicians. A dream that will end the Nightmare and rescue Liberty from the unending onslaught of Tyranny that threatens to scour away the hearts and minds of America’s Patriots.

Stand Up, Speak Out, and Talk Hard!
