Part 1 – Introduction
“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…”
The solemn duty of sacrifice is my very life – if need be – surrendered freely in defense of my country and constitution. Not a political party, not a world order, not an anti-American president, and certainly not the gathering forces of a tyrannical government hell bent on the imposition of a destructive ideology. It sickens my very soul that the domestic threats to my liberty are now far more dangerous than the foreign aggressors we have either apathetically allowed or abetted under the current administration.
I find some solace in the “Oath Keepers.” (www.oathkeepers.org) a non-profit, non-partisan, organization established formally in 2009 – Oath Keepers have declared that military and law enforcement personnel will uphold their oath to the constitution, rather than any governmental effort to decimate our God-given, constitutionally guaranteed liberties. They formally affirm:
1. We will NOT obey orders to disarm the American people.
2. We will NOT obey orders to conduct warrantless searches of the American people
3. We will NOT obey orders to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to military tribunal.
4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state.
5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty.
6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.
7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.
8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control.”
9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies.
10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
How prophetic these affirmations are, considering the current state of affairs…to be addressed in future posts. This is NOT ENOUGH though! We must not wait for such drastic measures to come to fruition; we must fight them daily as viciously as if our life depends on upon it, because it does. We must enjoin together in the defense of our constitution, in all matters great and small – be it proposed gun legislation, UN entreaties, excessive taxation, political corruptness…. If I am willing to die for my country, can I not do something daily to protect it for my children and grandchildren? The slow creep of totalitarianism is occurring even as I type. Would we knowingly allow our enemy to set up a future ambush for us, or a thuggish gang to set up shop in our neighborhood? Would we allow a naval force to lay mines for us, or a foe to dig trenches in preparation for their assault?
I am not a dues-paying member of the official Oath Keepers. I cannot financially support every cause. But as a veteran and a citizen, I can spread the word. I can expose the lies and falsehoods of our government and media. I can exert influence over my representatives. I can thank the ones who stand for liberty, and vehemently voice displeasure with those who don’t. I can contact my own local county, city, and state governments and demand that they uphold the oath they took. There are so many things we can, and must do against the enemies of freedom… We “fix” bayonets to prepare for a bloody battle, (and yes President Obama, we still have bayonets in the military.) Steel yourselves in such a manner to fight for the very future of our beloved country.
Most recently, it has been heartening to watch the many county sheriffs, city police chiefs and officers, constables, soldiers, airmen, marines and squids, veterans, state legislatures, and so many other civic entities rise up against the recent affronts to our Second Amendment rights.
From the Albany Democrat Herald and posted mere moments ago, even more sheriffs are speaking out: “This letter serves two purposes,” Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin wrote in a letter to Vice President Joe Biden. “First, to make a formal request that you not tamper with or attempt to amend the 2nd Amendment. Gun control is not the answer to preventing heinous crimes like school shootings. Any actions against, or in disregard of our U.S. Constitution and 2nd Amendment rights by the current administration would be irresponsible and an indisputable insult to the American people.”
The second purpose was to inform Biden, “I will not violate my Constitutional oath. …. Any federal regulation enacted by Congress or by executive order of the President offending the Constitutional rights of my citizens shall not be enforced by me or by my deputies, nor will I permit the enforcement of any unconstitutional regulations or orders by federal officers within the borders of Douglas County, Oregon.”
There is currently a list of 127 confirmed sheriffs who have courageously declared to uphold their oaths against any attempt on the 2nd Amendment. http://www.examiner.com/article/127-sheriffs-won-t-enforce-obama-gun-laws-specter-of-door-to-door-gun-search
Is your sheriff listed? When you find such patriots, whether you are from their state or not, take the time to support and encourage them as if they were your brother-in-arms, because they are.
House Republicans have caved again, albeit on a temporary basis. They have agreed to vote on a three month extension of the [NO] debt ceiling.
Why do they empower Comrade Obama in his quest to crush our economy? He threatens and bullies them, and they cave every time! We have NEVER had a budget since he became the Socialist-In-Chief, and we NEVER will! Obama is determined to destroy America and turn it over to the United Nations. We have plenty of proof of this. Here are just a few examples:
- Spending is out of this world! No one with half a brain would consider running their family budget like this, or their business. Why does the government continue to allow Obama to spend MORE than every other Chief Executive combined, and WITHOUT a budget?
- He continues to print money as if he is a failed monopoly player. Everyone knows that printing money does not solve the problem. He talks of a $1Trillion note, but the only ones that have tried this are THIRD WORLD Countries! We have seen where that has gone, but Obama wants to take us down that path as well.
- He refuses to even submit a budget, with the exception of one that was so distorted that even his cronies in the Democratic Party couldn’t even consider it. He knew that would happen. He knew by submitting an outrageous budget, he could continue on without ANY budget. And Congress is ALLOWING this to continue.
- He is spending on his family, at taxpayer expense, as if he is an Emperor. Look at his multi-million dollar vacations! Look at all the time he spends on the golf course and NOT doing his job. He and his accomplice do not think twice to double their cost of travel by taking different planes, as if they were the royal heirs. They don’t mind tripling the costs by putting their kids on separate transport. This is a shameless encumbrance on the American people meant to showboat his personal entitlement fixation.
- There is even more proof with the increase in taxes. He talks a big story with his fake concern for the middle class. He was the cause of the largest tax hike on the middle class in history, and he pretends that nobody noticed. He has since increased their taxes again, and he claims that only the wealthy were increased. He thinks the American people are stupid and cannot feel this crunch. Maybe he thinks only the government is stupid? If they keep signing off on this crap, he may yet be proven right.
- Now, he also wants to take the guns from citizens. Only a Dictator would do this. Someone who is bent on enslaving his people and must disarm them to head off an uprising. Has Congress put two and two together yet?
What would happen if the Republicans JUST SAID “NO”? Would the government shut down? Sure, but would that be so bad? What would actually happen?
- First of all, the elected government officials, including the Shah of America, would get paid. Their paychecks are mandated by separate laws, and they cannot be stopped without another mandate.
- Emergency Services would continue. This includes Police, Fire, and state hospitals.
- Non-emergency government personnel would be given a furlough. They get a few days off. Military personnel would not get the time off, but their paychecks would be pushed back during this time. But, they would not starve. The military takes care of its own.
- The Post Office would continue, as they are self-sustaining.
But, the things that would NOT happen?
- Washington DC would probably not get their garbage picked up.
- State run schools would probably close for a few days.
- Museums would close.
THE WORLD WOULD NOT END!
The street lights would not go out.
People would be paid, just paid a little later.
It’s not the worst thing that could happen!
It would certainly get the government’s attention. Our Supreme Potentate would blame George Bush, as usual. But, we would Save Money! That is more important than his overblown ego, and that of the Senate and Congress.
It is time! SHUT THE GOVERNMENT DOWN!
The Revolution is in full swing! America has been taken over by Socialists and the Constitutional Conservatives are not sitting still for it. We are not going to be silent and not going to be invisible. We are exercising Our Rights under Our Constitution. And our Government, led by Comrade Obama, is Ticked Off!
Second Amendment activists are being targeted by the Left-Wing Liberals, from Mr. Obama down to the local Welfare recipient. We have been labeled as everything from Extremists to Terrorists, and now we have also been labeled as “Anti-Federalists”.
What is an Anti-Federalist, you ask? Well, we support civil activism and individual freedoms. They say we are violent and living in the past. They also claim that “…its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation.” This means that we DO NOT want to change the fundamental concepts that this country was founded on, and the Liberal Fanatics see this as a bad thing. In their eyes, anyone that does not want to evolve to Socialism/Communism must be Terrorists!
Today had the Conservatives showing their support for the 2nd Amendment with “Gun Appreciation Day” throughout the country. It was a resounding success! There were demonstrations everywhere, with local and state officials speaking their support of this grassroots movement. Talks of changing their State laws to not allow the Federal Government to take any weapons or force registration on gun owners took place. Many were “Open Carry” which had individuals proudly exercising their rights to carry their weapons. News reports from across the country talked of thousands of citizens taking part in this event.
Yes, it is a battle. Yes, the Revolution has begun. Yes, we will fight for our rights!
We will not go quietly into the night, as much as the Washington Socialists would like to see that happen. We are here. We are vocal. And we are not giving up our guns!
Mr. Obama and his Socialist cronies think they have won. They believe they have gained everything they set out for, and are on their way to building an empire. They have fought for Socialism and, yes, they are well on their way to success.
With today’s announcements of new Empirical Powers to take our 2nd amendment rights from us, they have shown their ego’s to have no limits. They are brash and confident. They are not concerned with the Republicans, with the individual States, or even with the lowly middle-class Americans. No one can stop them.
Americans everywhere are calling for “Revolution”. All 50 states had delivered petitions of secession to the White House. All 50 states, Red & Blue, have dissenters willing to risk everything to “have their country back”. They are willing to fight for their Rights. They WANT their Constitution!
What would Revolution mean in today’s America? It certainly would not be as it was in 1776. There would not be organized battles on your front lawn. Not in this day of modern technology. There are factions that are organizing as we speak. They are starting on the World Wide Web. They are on Social Media, such as Twitter and Facebook. They are writing blogs and online articles. They are on discussion forums. They are organizing.
Not just the little guy, mind you. There are already battles being fought against the Federal Government, by the State Governments. Louisiana and Nebraska moved to abolish their individual and corporate income taxes. This is a battle against the new taxes of ObamaCair. Sheriffs in many counties across the nation are stating their willingness to fight the gun ban proposed by Mr. Obama. This is a direct battle against the Federal Government. Florida passed laws protecting its citizens from Drones spying on them. And the list goes on. These are battles already being fought against our nation’s highest government, by the people.
The arrogance of Mr. Obama is unmatched. He will respond to the battles. Martial Law will go into effect in short order. He has already signed his Empirical Orders to accomplish this. He has stopped the sale of guns and ammo at many large retail chains, such as Dick’s Sporting Goods. He has several large corporations on board his plans. Bank of America is already deciding how they will allow you to spend your money, just look at American Spirit Arms. There is a definite line in the sand.
Even his supporters are starting to be wary. He is losing support every day, and he has not even had his inauguration for his second term as yet. They are not leaving in large numbers, but it never starts that way. At first, you will have a few deserters, which we have seen. Remember the Obama-Phone Lady? There are even some DC Democrats that are starting to question the wisdom of their support of Mr. Obama. It is starting, for the People.
There will be Revolution. Will it be a gun battle? Will it be through Impeachment? In this modern country, there are many possibilities. One thing is for sure, it will happen. We want our Constitution because it is our right!
We the People
Americans have spoken! We will not sit idly by and allow you to trample on our 2nd Amendment. It will not happen.
We have purchased enough guns and ammo to arm several countries. Barry, have you noticed?
With Social Media as the norm, we are organizing. Are you listening, Barry?
Our Sheriffs trump your Executive Orders. Have you read the Constitution, Barry? We have. We know what the word “Impeachment” means.
Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Texas, South Carolina and more. We are all taking a Stand!
Why don’t you and Old Joe, along with Eric the Hood and Nanny Bloomberg, go finish your poker game. Hasn’t anyone ever told you “Never Bet against Americans!”?
We Love Our Constitution. We will fight for Our Rights. We Will Not be Dictated To! We are AMERICANS!
Barry, I hope you can hear me.
I hear this from a lot of Gun Control Advocates. I am a bit confused. What is to “believe”? That guns actually exist, like “I don’t believe in Fairies”? Or that anyone should possess them? Does this include Military personnel or Peace Officers? How about just the plain simple fact that these fanatics do not want Law abiding citizens to possess firearms? Any Firearms. But these same Fanatics cannot seem to admit that if this were the law of the land then criminals would run rampant, being the only ones that possessed firearms.
Until, that is, one of them is victimized. Here is such a story. Notice that the victim states “I don’t believe in guns” but acknowledges his Saviors:
Well, Obamacare is the law of the land. You have heard all the scare stories… right? Maybe not all of them.
For the first time in history, the government has attempted to force Americans to pay for the ending of human life – even if abortion violates their religious beliefs. We have heard about the fights on behalf of the employers (think Hobby Lobby) and rightly so. But do you know what it means to you, as an employee?
As an employee who is morally against abortion, you may now be forced into a health plan that violates your beliefs. Yes, and if you refuse coverage, you will be fined the greater of either the cost of the plan or 1% of your salary for the first year, 2% of your salary the second year, and 2.5% each year after that.
Plus, The Abortion Premium Mandate requires everyone that is enrolled in an ObamaCare-compliant plan in State Exchanges that include elective abortion coverage of any kind (surgical, chemical, late term, etc.) to pay a separate premium straight from their paychecks. . Now, ObamaCare says this separate premium will not cost less than $1 per month per enrollee, but it does not say how much more it could cost. And, because this premium is taken directly from a paycheck and put directly into an abortion-on-demand fund, bypassing the tax process, it attempts to circumvent federal laws that prohibit taxpayer funding of abortion.
Let us not forget the Secrecy Clause. While many of the ObamaCare-compliant insurance plans include this abortion charge, not all do. You think you can just shop around and find a plan that follows your beliefs? NOPE. Insurance companies are not allowed to tell you ahead of time which plans include this cost. It may “only” be disclosed in the fine print of the “summary of benefits and coverage explanation, at the time of enrollment.” (Remember: “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it”?) You can only discover whether or not your plan contains an abortion premium either by reading the fine print once you have enrolled, or if you happen to notice the separate surcharge on your pay stub.
And this does not even talk about what it does for Minors… your children. That is a whole different ball of wax. Children (defined as 0-26 years of age) will receive coverage of free contraception counseling and education, contraception, sterilization and early-abortion pills with NO requirement to inform parents of services. Remember, this includes children in Grammer School!
Now, of course, this is all for abortion. There is NO choice in ObamaCare for choosing to have a child, even for your children. While the law requires that children/dependents receive total coverage for contraception, abortion pills and sterilizations, it does not require that they receive any coverage for live birth.
So, there you go.
We have all seen the stupidity of the Main Stream Media of late, but the prize goes to the Journal News for publishing the Names & Addresses of residents holding Legally obtained Gun Permits. It compounded this atrocity with an interactive map for all of the criminals to use for identification of who’s home to burgle.
Make no mistake, this will be used by criminals. People are no longer safe in these counties!
Additionally, the Journal News is attempting to repeat these actions with more counties. Putnam county has refused to comply with the requests. Kudos to Putnam county! You have to admire them for recognizing the privacy violations of their residents and doing their best to protect them.
The Freedom of Information Act was never intended to abuse the legal rights of citizens. It was never intended to compromise the safety of anyone. The abuse of this process is getting wildly out-of-hand. The Journal News believes that in their quest to ban all handguns, they are doing a service to their cause. Guess what? They have Hired ARMED GUARDS to protect them from the backlash! They are doing what they are vilifying others for doing… protecting themselves!
Additional Kudos go to the blogger for publishing the names and addresses of those responsible for this mess. I can honestly say that I wish I had thought of it first. Give this man a pat on the back!
Gun Control for the safety of our society cannot come at the expense of the safety of our society. The Journal News needs to go. I hope they fold under the weight of the lawsuits that I believe should be filed against them. What they did was Anti-American.
Who is he kidding? He states “What I know in my conscience is 98 percent of the families in Wisconsin are not going to get hit with a massive tax increase.” He did not even read the bill before he signed it! He couldn’t have, no one had a chance to read it.
What about all of us Middle-Class that ARE getting hit with the tax increases? 77% of Americans are NOW dealing with increases that could break us. Between the tax hikes, Obamacare, and the rest, we are being sacrificed for Obama’s narcissistic ideology, and Paul Ryan is making excuses. We do not need more excuses! We need REAL leadership!
Yes, we need to deal with spending. We have been saying all along that the problem is in spending, not in revenue. But, do not tell us that you are happy with your vote when you didn’t even know what you were voting for! That is completely irresponsible!
We now have our ‘European Moment’ as we head down the path of Greece. Obama is as happy as a pig-in-slop, because he gets to do it again in 2 months. This is a Temporary fix! But, at least, Paul Ryan and his Obama-Kissing buddies are happy with what they have accomplished.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino has a promise from Joe Biden and he is spouting it to the world. Americans need to beware. We have been saying that Obama will go for your guns, and here is Good Ole Joe pledging that it will happen by the end of January.
Gun Control Advocates will rejoice, while the rest of America will put Smith & Wesson stock through the roof. We call on the House & Senate Republicans to double-down to stop this madness! Taking away the guns will only leave them to the criminals!
