AMERICANS & CAREER POLITICIANS MAKE A MOCKERY OF INDEPENDENCE DAY

The idea of freedom from a tyrant across the great ocean in the British Empire began long before 1776. However, the states formally severed ties with "their King" when one of the greatest documents ever written, the United States Declaration of Independence was issued on behalf of a new sovereign nation. Freedom was proclaimed on July 4, 1776. Those who so courageously signed that document proudly set in ink:

"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."

The men, some of them young teens, fought the British for the right to be free. Many women not only stood by their men in such a monumental contest, but also young girls like Sybil Luddington. She was 16 when "called into service" for the cause. I actually own one of the rare copies of Sybil Luddington's Ride by Erick Berry. My book cases are filled from the floor to the ceiling with the history of this constitutional republic; I've read them all over the past 21 years. More than I ever learned in school even though civics was still a required class way back then.

Today, the words in the Declaration of Independence mean nothing to tens of millions of Americans who could care less about the sacrifices made to give us freedom and liberty because they have zero understanding of the history of their own country. Of course, that has been the goal for close to four decades in this country. Dumb down the population using government indoctrination centers called public schools. Get rid of civics and ridicule any patriotism. Remember those goals of the communist party?

Congressional Record--Appendix, pp. A34-A35 - January 10, 1963
Current Communist Goals
Extension of Remarks of Hon. A.S. Herlong, Jr., of Florida in the House of Representatives
Thursday, January 10, 1963
Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture."

The words of Samuel Adams, instigator of the Boston Tea Party, signed the Declaration of Independence and known as the Father of the American Revolution, have been forgotten by tens of million in this country as they pursue what makes them feel good:

"Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age, by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, of inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity and universal philanthropy, and, in subordination to these great principles, the love of their country; of instructing them in the art of self-government without which they never can act a wise part in the government of societies, great or small; in short, of leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian System." October 4, 1790

For millions, today means guzzling beer, endless sports to choose from, females running around with a couple of band aids over their pubic area and breasts at the beach as they peddle their wares, doing "recreational" drugs, watching porn on the Internet or attending folksy political fund raisers serving up hot dogs and potato salad. For millions it will be getting that 50% off sale at some retail outlet peddling cheap junk from communist China. Never a single thought about what today means passes through the wind tunnel between their ears. 

I'm all for a little fun on your day off, but millions make a mockery of why Independence Day was made a national holiday. The worst are career politicians, Republicans and Democrats alike, with their lies about keeping "us" safe as they strip the Bill of Rights clean like a fresh plucked chicken. The author of When Governments Go Rogue summed it up accurately:

"The kind of intrusion by government allowed by the American people today is utterly astounding. Bank records, medical records, political viewpoints, phone conversations, emails, child rearing practices, food eating habits, health pursuits, social networking habits, biometric data, travel; nothing is safe from the prying eyes of government anymore.

"At what point did we as a nation decide that the government's opinion of the domestic ideal should become the precedent? At what point did we decide that a faceless bureaucracy knows better than we do what is best for us? When did our lives become an open book to be read at the government's leisure?

"I say “we decided”, because we must bear a large part of the blame. From the institution of the Patriot Acts, to the utilization of the FISA domestic spying bill, to the latest monitoring and cataloging by the DHS and the Federal Reserve of private internet activity, we have stood by and done little to nothing in response.

"The argument put forth by establishment proponents has always been that the government's task is to keep us safe. In order to do this, they say, there can be nowhere for “evil doers” to hide. Therefore, the privacy of every individual must be sacrificed for the greater good of the greater number. This argument is unabashed nonsense.

"Governments do not keep people safe. Governments are historically predisposed to ending far more lives than they protect, especially when they have strayed from their original mandates. When a government goes rogue, or has been honed as a tool for control rather than defense, its directives lean towards self preservation, not the preservation of the public. That is to say, the government and those who directly benefit from its manipulation set policies that ensure their own safety, and no one else's.

"Without a doubt, all the anti-4th Amendment legislation that has been passed over the course of last decade is focused not on some sinister force, foreign or domestic. Instead, it has been focused on average American citizens, because, whether we want to admit it or not, the government sees US as their greatest enemy."

Now it's drones flying over our heads as well as troops on the streets of America. All made possible by slimy politicians like Speaker of the House, John Boehner:

Voted YES on allowing electronic surveillance without a warrant.

Voted YES on continuing intelligence gathering without civil oversight.

Boehner voted to renew the freedom killing, "Patriot" Act, as did Eric Cantor, Darrell Issa and Steve King - all Republicans who claim to fight for our constitutional rights. Hogwash. The majority of Congress has been passing bills since 9-11 crushing our freedoms and liberty to live our lives without government snooping. The full roll call list is here if you'd like to see how your "conservative" representative voted. Those three mentioned have allegedly won their primaries. Unless something goes wrong, they will win the pretend election in November and go right back to Congress in January 2013, to pass more bills beating us into the ground so we can't even walk out the door without breaking some law. Privacy issues mean nothing to the vermin in the Outlaw Congress in their quest to "keep us safe". It's all about control and monitoring our every move 24/7. 

But --- the biggest consideration when dealing with "laws" signed by some puppet president is jurisdiction. A legal issue so many of have been writing about for decades, but so few pay attention to or even understand. We know about activist judges and the toxic decisions they've been making for decades. The gutless cowards that serve in the Outlaw Congress refuse to impeach them. Let me give you just one of a thousand examples that would have caused real men like Patrick Henry to take action:

Spotted owl could be game-changer in Tombstone water war. "The owl is a threatened species, and until a few days ago its presence in fire-scorched Miller Canyon was a matter of speculation. But now that it has surfaced, the owl could be a game-changer in the water war between the U.S. Forest Service and the Wild West city made famous by the 30-second gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Tombstone is trying to repair a 26-mile pipeline that has brought mountain spring water into the city since 1881. It was damaged during last summer's Monument Fire and monsoon rains that brought mud, water and boulders crashing down the denuded slopes...

"Tombstone now asserts that it owns 25 springs in the Huachuca Mountains and shouldn't have to ask anyone for permission to maintain its own water line. The Forest Service says Tombstone holds permits for just five springs, and it argues the city is trying to exploit a natural disaster to expand its water system. With the conservative Goldwater Institute taking on Tombstone's legal work, the court battle has blossomed into a full-blown states rights dispute. Tombstone is getting the attention of activists from Utah, New Mexico and other Western states who say the federal government has gone too far. It has become ground zero in a rekindled Sagebrush Rebellion."

It all comes down to the rights of a sovereign state as constitutional attorney, Larry Becraft, so succinctly wrote about in a column: "Perhaps the best way to determine the jurisdiction of any given federal agency is to examine various cases regarding the subject matter of that agency. For example, the United States Constitution does not provide that Congress has any authority concerning the fish and wildlife within this country and this has been previously litigated with obvious results. In McCready v. Virginia, 94 U.S. 391, 394- 95 (1877), the Supreme Court held regarding the fish within the oceans:

"[T]he States own the tidewaters themselves and the fish in them, so far as they are capable of ownership while running." The title thus held is subject to the paramount right of navigation, the regulation of which, in respect to foreign and interstate commerce, has been granted to the United States. There has been, however, no such grant of power over the fisheries. These remain under the exclusive control of the state."

Since it is a holiday, I hope you will take the time to read Larry's trio of columns on that issue. They aren't very long; see links below. Larry also has a superb analysis on federal jurisdiction here.

We know we're in dire straits, but what to do? Dante Alighieri, an Italian Poet said it rather well: "For what is liberty but the unhampered translation of will into act?" 

The sovereign states of the Union have begun fighting back, but they've also been holding back. As I said in my last column, the same globalists, socialists, hard core Marxists and phony conservatives are going to dominate both houses of Congress in January 2013. While there are a few limited areas we need to fight at the congressional level, we have to concentrate on every state legislature in the Union. In the past few years states rights has once again taken hold. This time it can be the game changer if we the people make our state representatives and senators understand that in order to stop the tyranny coming out of Washington, DC., they have to go rent a bucket of guts and stand up to the federal machine:

What if the federal government passes a “law” and everyone ignores it, or actively blocks its enforcement? What if a state said it no longer would comply with the EPA, HUD, DOE, DOT, DHS, etc. etc.? What if multiple states refused to comply with federal rules, regulations and “laws”?

"If they did, what then?

"Would the federal government send in Federal Marshals to arrest the governor and legislature? What if the people of the state resisted? Would they call up the National Guard and have them enforce Martial Law? Would they round up people and put them into Internment Camps? What if the National Guard refused to follow their orders? Would they send in the Army?

"Do the states have a right to refuse “laws” that violate the Constitution?

"If the Constitution is a contract among the several states, as the founding fathers understood, what is the remedy to violations of the contract?"
