This week Americans will enjoy Independence Day with family cookouts and fireworks. Flags will be displayed in abundance. Sadly, however, what should be a celebration of the courage of those who risked so much to oppose tyranny will instead be turned into a celebration of government, not liberty. The mainstream media and opportunistic politicians have turned Independence Day into the opposite of what was intended.
The idea of opposing — by force if necessary — a tyrannical government has been turned into a celebration of tyrannical government itself!
The evidence is all around us.
How would the signers of the Declaration of Independence have viewed, for example, the Obama Administration’s “drone memo,” finally released last week, which claims to justify the president’s killing American citizens without charge, judge, jury, or oversight? Is this not a tyranny similar to that which our Founders opposed? And was such power concentrated in one branch of government not what inspired the rebellion against the English king in the first place?
The “drone memo,” released after an ACLU freedom of information request, purports to establish the president alone as the arbiter of who is or is not a terrorist subject to execution by the US government. There is no due process involved, just the determination of the president. Thus far the only American citizens killed by the president are Anwar al-Awlaki and his teenaged son, but the precedent has been established, according to the memo, that the president has the authority to kill Americans he believes are terrorists.
Even the New York Times, which generally backs whatever US administration is in power, is troubled by the White House’s legal justification to claim the authority to kill Americans. A Times editorial last week concluded that:
…the memo turns out to be a slapdash pastiche of legal theories — some based on obscure interpretations of British and Israeli law — that was clearly tailored to the desired result.
I agree with the New York Times’ conclusion that, “[t]his memo should never have taken so long to be released, and more documents must be made public. The public is still in the dark on too many vital questions.”
Coincidentally, in addition to the “drone memo” released last week, a broader study of the US use of drones was also released by the Stimson Center. The study, co-chaired by Gen. John Abizaid, former U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) commander, concluded that contrary to claims that drones help prevent wider conflicts by targeting specific individuals, the use of drones “may create a slippery slope leading to continual or wider wars.”
In fact, the study concluded, the use of drones overseas is likely counterproductive. “Civilian casualties, even if relatively few, can anger whole communities, increase anti-US sentiment and become a potent recruiting tool for terrorist organizations,” the study found.
Seven years ago I wrote in an Independence Day column:
Only the safe-guards and limitations that are enshrined in a constitutionally-limited republic can prohibit a nation from lurching toward empire…I hope every person who reads or hears this will take the time to go back and read the Declaration of Independence. Only by recapturing the spirit of independence can we ensure our government never resembles the one from which the American States declared their separation.
On Independence Day we should remember the spirit of rebellion against tyranny that inspired our Founding Fathers to set out our experiment in liberty. We should ourselves celebrate and continue that struggle if we are to keep our republic.
The wave of illegal Aliens crossing the border with the promise of being legalized for just showing up. Barrack Obama is doing this for a multi faceted reasons. There is panic in the air among the globalist he works for to take down America hook and by crook before the Americans rise up and remove the New World Order from power.
He needs a voting block of an unskilled dependent and an uneducated underclass with no loyalty to the United States to vote for socialism. He is implementing measures so these invaders can register as Democrats so they can go to the poles and vote for government handouts to bankrupt the country and steal our God given freedoms.
The Federalist writer Alexander Hamilton speaks very clear about why we have naturalization laws when new immigrants arrive on our shores or entering any other legal point of entry into the country. The founders were very passionate about the necessity of a process as a true pathway of citizenship outlined in the Constitution. Congress has the duty of writing the naturalization laws in Article 1 section 8 stating:
To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,
This is why Amnesty is unconstitutional because it is not uniform and rewards the wrong behavior when a person enters the country illegally is given preferential treatment over those who played by the rules who want to be real Americans.
The President of the United States only power is to enforce the laws passed by the Congress and singed into law by the President. Article 2 section 1
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.
Also in Article 2 section 3:
he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.
Barrack Obama is making law and not executing the laws of Congress that has the constitutional jurisdiction over immigration and naturalization laws that are supposed to be ” Uniform” meaning being no respecter of persons. Meaning no ethnic people or a group of forefingers shall not be given preference over another for political reasons or for corporate special interest to profit at the expense of the nation and the economy
Even back in the early years of America. Immigration was a hot button issue back in that period of our early days as a young nation. Even Alexander Hamilton agreeing with Thomas Jefferson said when there is no uniform naturalization process can put the very young republic in peril writing:
“The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits; on the exemption of the citizens from foreign bias, and prejudice; and on that love of country which will almost invariably be found to be closely connected with birth, education, and family.
“The opinion advanced in the Notes on Virginia is undoubtedly correct, that foreigners will generally be apt to bring with them attachments to the persons they have left behind; to the country of their nativity, and to its particular customs and manners. They will also entertain opinions on government congenial with those under which they have lived; or, if they should be led hither from a preference to ours, how extremely unlikely is it that they will bring with them that temperate love of liberty, so essential to real republicanism? There may, as to particular individuals, and at particular times, be occasional exceptions to these remarks, yet such is the general rule. The influx of foreigners must, therefore, tend to produce a heterogeneous compound; to change and corrupt the national spirit; to complicate and confound public opinion; to introduce foreign propensities. In the composition of society, the harmony of the ingredients is all-important, and whatever tends to a discordant intermixture must have an injurious tendency.
“The United States have already felt the evils of incorporating a large number of foreigners into their national mass; by promoting in different classes different predilections in favor of particular foreign nations, and antipathies against others, it has served very much to divide the community and to distract our councils. It has been often likely to compromise the interests of our own country in favor of another. The permanent effect of such a policy will be, that in times of great public danger there will be always a numerous body of men, of whom there may be just grounds of distrust; the suspicion alone will weaken the strength of the nation, but their force may be actually employed in assisting an invader.
Does that sound like what is going on today where the President has collapsed the borders bringing in a group of people to make legal without any lawful sound process to be registered voters not familiar of our own form of government and our history. Foreign people unwilling to learn our language or the principles that made our country great.
in the same essay sums up the reason for a uniform process of naturalization as a matter of national security stating and the preservation of the republic:
The present law was merely a temporary measure adopted under peculiar circumstances, and perhaps demands revision. But there is a wide difference between closing the door altogether and throwing it entirely open; between a postponement of fourteen years, and an immediate admission to all the rights of citizenship. Some reasonable term ought to be allowed to enable aliens to get rid of foreign and acquire American attachments; to learn the principles and imbibe the spirit of our government; and to admit of a probability at least, of their feeling a real interest in our affairs. A residence of not less than five years ought to be required.
“If the rights of naturalization may be communicated by parts, and it is not perceived why they may not, those peculiar to the conducting of business and the acquisition of property, might with propriety be at once conferred, upon receiving proof, by certain prescribed solemnities, of the intention of the candidates to become citizens; postponing all political privileges to the ultimate term. To admit foreigners indiscriminately to the rights of citizens, the moment they put foot in our country, as recommended in the message, would be nothing less than to admit the Grecian horse into the citadel of our liberty and sovereignty.”
This is why we must resist Amnesty at all cost because of the consequences that follow when a people are not educated on the principles, history and language so they can over a period of time sever their ties from the country they left to be loyal Americans.
Reading what Alexander Hamilton wrote. There is nothing new under the sun. This is why for our national survival must hold Congress and the President accountable who bypass immigration and naturalization laws to favor one group over another to satisfy special interest for profit and political motivation to hold onto power.
If we can not deport most of these people mainly children coming up from Mexico, Central and South America who have a hatred of America and contempt for the people. Then we must demand congress that these people learn the language and go through the naturalization process long enough to be severed from any ties their place of birth having making an informed choice renouncing their allegiance to the country they came from. Taking an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution being loyal to the United States embracing the principles that made America great or be deported to their homeland if they do not conform to our criteria to stay here.
Even though I disagree with Alexander Hamilton on many issues. His analysis on Immigration hits the nail on the head explaining why we need a uniform process of naturalization. Compared to the discriminating proposal of Amnesty giving pathway to citizenship to a group of people who broke the law entering America violating our borders. These lawbreakers who violated our sovereignty are given priority over those who obeyed the law to come here and be a part of the American experience who will make great citizens contributing much to society.
We must hold congress and the President accountable because Immigration and Naturalization laws are there to protect the nation preserving our republican form of government with a society that embraces liberty. They are not being enforced. We need to bring back the “rule of Law” so the best, the motivated and the brightest can come here to participate in the land of the free and the home of the brave leaving the old country and it ties behind. What do you think?
It is now common knowledge all the wars have been started by the bankers. It has been revealed in the past the oligarchs are behind the famines and artificial scarcity of natural resources as a means of controlling the populations. It has exposed over the decades that the ruling elite are behind the economic booms and bust. Now will the consequences come back on them for their misdeeds?
All indications point to insolvency of the big banks, especially the share holders of the Federal Reserve bank. The derivative black hole might be the lynchpin to collapse the whole world wide banking system. The derivative debt exceeds all the money in circulation and assets owned around the world mathematically can not be paid back. The bail outs and the nations signing on to this banker debt through their minions in these governments making their people pay for it is about to come to an end. This is the debt of the oligarchs. If forced to pay over 1 quadrillion in derivative debt. They go broke. This is one of the reasons why there is panic in the air. Their window of opportunity for a financial dictatorship is closing fast. This is why the bankers are trying to start major wars as a distraction so the people can not see the oligarchs try to reposition to consolidate power.
When you see the Major Banks starting to take money out of segregated accounts calling them haircuts or bail ins being a fancy term for looting or stealing.
When you see bank tellers asking their customers why they are withdrawing money or giving them grief for taking money out of their accounts. The banks are close to being insolvent.
The next shoe to drop is not the governments taking confiscating gold out of safety deposit boxes. We can see the banks stealing gold out of the safety deposit boxes to prop up the Federal Reserve Bank. This private central bank has no gold in the vaults that is supposed to be on deposit by other nations has been leased out to artificially keep the price of gold down.
When Germany and Venezuela cannot get their gold back from the Federal Reserve Bank nor allowed to see their own gold in the vaults. Something sounds very fishy or do you smell a rat?
The Federal Reserve Bank is no more than a paper tiger with only printing money out of thin air with no hard assets to back it up except US treasuries that have no value except the full faith and credit of the United States Government which is highly questionable since they have defaulted on its obligations to the American people .
The Federal Reserve Bank is buying US Debt buying treasury bonds secretly through Brussels because China and other nations are no longer buying US bonds.
The B.R.I.C.S. Alliance no longer goes along with the Bretton Woods agreement. Countries are no longer conducting trade in US Dollars. They are using their own currencies to trade now.
The Russia – China oil and gas agreement buying and selling oil in their own currencies is a major blow to the Western European bankers.
The Bankers can not survive too much longer printing paper money out of nothing. The flood of illegal aliens who are low skilled labor will not be able to back up the value of the US treasuries so America can sell it debt abroad to print more Federal Reserve Notes.
The Bankers run on manipulation countries, playing divide and conquer to destabilize a nation are starting to lose it effect. The manufactured crisis of artificial scarcity of natural resources in abundance is being exposed. The economic booms and bust are now seen as a plan by the bankers as a way to profit when there are good time as well as bad. They been behind stealing elections to make sure their people in in power.
Anti Banker insurrections are now gaining traction around the world. The spirit of revolt is in the air around the world against these oligarchs hiding in shadows behind their political puppets. Has Karma caught up with the bankers where wealth will no more keep them out of jail?
Correcting Injustices doesn’t go unanswered. When people are robbed of their wages to pay unjust usury. God’s vengeance does not sleep forever.

We are in a state of emergency on our southern border. The borders are collapsing for political purposes of the Democrat Party. Because they need a new dependent under class of voters to make sure their political power for decades to come is there.. This is treason in the highest levels of government waging war against the American people. The Globalist Puppet Obama is carrying out the agenda of taking America down for the North American union as well destroying our republic form of government.
The immigration and naturalization laws are not being enforced. Congress is not keeping the President’s power in check using executive orders bypassing congress when the President does not get his way. I would not hold my breath on the Tea Party coming to the rescue this November with a new congress is poppy cock. Washington is not going to enforce the Law if there is 535 Ted Cruz’s elected this November. I do not trust state governments in the border states either to enforce the rule of law. All we hear is lip service.
All I see is a crisis created by the Obama administration saying to stop the flood of illegal crossings to stop. Congress must pass Amnesty legalizing people already here illegally to solve the problem. This the talking points coming out of Washington DC. Their solution to the crisis that has been orchestrated with escorts advertised to help shuttle the people illegally crossing the border go anywhere in the USA without proper screening. The solution by the politicians is trying to make the American people accept a solution they will not accept. Remember what Rham Immanuel said” Do not let a good crisis go to waste.”
We are on our own. There is no help coming from state and Federal government. The Border Patrol will not secure the border. The Military is not going to secure the border. The National Guard is not going to secure the border. If they do deploy our Armed Forces to the Border. It is just a publicity stunt to silence the opposition without really doing anything to solve the problem.
The rules of engagement will make the mission ineffective stopping the drug cartels or coyotes crossing the border. The politicians will not allow them to have ammunition for self-defense when attacked. The soldiers will be lucky if the powers that be will let the troops carry an empty rifle for show while ammunition is a mile back in the rear locked up in a shack. The Standing Operating Procedure (SOP) will be so dysfunctional having no clear objective of the mission. Political correctness will trump any common sense solution to be effective securing the border so we do not offend Mexico who is violating our sovereignty everyday.
Do we sit on our hands just in the Info war waiting for a miracle with talk only waiting for someone to come forward and deal with the problem? If we do that waiting for the Calvary of Tea Party Politicians to come and save the day this November. We will be overrun by a hordes of third world peasants as a political weapon that will undermine our republican form of government.
We are in a State of Emergency being attacked by an enemy from within our government and in our movement. The massive migration of illegal aliens would not be possible unless there is treason from within people in the mainstream and alternative media misleading people in the wrong direction. Some of the people who claim to be the voice of Patriot Broadcasters fighting the info war are part of the traitors from within not reporting the truth for the purpose of buying the enemy time. Instead of telling the patriots deploy to the border. Instead we hear is a learned sense of helplessness and how the globalist are doing a good job wrecking the nation. Claiming to be outraged about the treason at the same time projecting the enemy strength as it is futile to resist. Beware of the enemy to your rear then the one in front of us.
Do not wait for orders from Washington or the State Capitals. Do not wait on Patriot Radio host to tell us what to do. The Texas militia and units from other states are heading to the Texas Mexican border. The militia units already have an S.O.P in place on how to secure the border effectively. The Minute man deployments in Arizona have stopped the illegal border crossings in their tracks with a well thought out standing operating procedure. They are not waiting for Gov. Rick Perry to ask or give the orders to call out the militia. Even though the Texas governor has complimented the militia at the Bundy Ranch. Will the Governor of the Lone Star State follow through supporting the militia deploying to the Texas /Mexican border like he has with the deployment at the Bundy Ranch? We will wait and see if Gov. Perry is sincere with his words about the militia.
Personal initiative will save the republic if we are not afraid of the what the media says. It is going to take us grabbing the bull by the horns and take control of the borders. We are the government. The people in office and work for the system are public servants who serve us. Not special interest.
We have to go beyond enforcing the border. We have to not allow this uneducated and not naturalized voting in socialism to take part in our elections without going through the naturalization process. Immigration law is supposed to be uniform with no preferential treatment of one group over another. We have people here for years who jumped through all the hoops to become American citizens. Still they are not citizens yet because of the bureaucracy. To allow these people to be legal to come in without going through the visa process entering our nation other than a lawful point of entry is discrimination against those who have played by the rules.
We never consented to the borders being collapsed by treaties and secret international agreements to allow this lawlessness. This border crisis is another way the government is trying to break our will as a people allowing the third world south of the border who know nothing about our history or our culture will vote in an authoritarian government if we do not intervene. To stop this lawlessness rest on our shoulders. Do not hold your breath waiting for the politicians to act.
We are on our own to stop this. We the people are the ones who have to secure the border. We the people are the ones who have to enforce the immigration laws. We have to execute the laws of the union and the Constitution. We have to resources and the means to stop this cold in its tracks if we have the will. We will find a way.
Our nation is in peril by those from within trying to destroy what is left of our once great nation. Who is to blame? We all are because we went along with the criminals in government in one form or another. It is time not to worry about losing your pension funds because they are gone. The politicians are raiding the government workers and military pension funds to fund the debt or to prop up the failing banks on Wall Street. There is nothing left to lose anymore and more to gain if we all become bold based on our moral convictions to do what is right. To accomplish the restoration of our republic requires risking everything. There is no easier or softer way to do this. We have to grab the bull by the horns.
Now it is a time of a decision for all who work in government who is concerned about the destruction of the nation. Did you take an oath to enter into civil service, to become a Federal Law Enforcement agent or in the military?? Have you read the Constitution you sworn to preserve, protect and defend? Do you know why you really were required to take that oath? Let me educate you a little.
The Oath is another Check and balance against tyranny and corruption in government. There are many checks and ba;lances in government. Between the branches in government, Between the states and the Federal government. All branches have constitutional limitations to ensure one branch does not acquire or grab too much power not delegated by the founding document.
The President of the Untied States can only execute the laws congress passes in article 2 section 1:
The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America
and also article 2 section 3:
he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.
President Obama is making law bypassing congress by executive actions with the dream act that did not pass in congress. Obama is legalizing children crossing the border without a visa by decree. Congress can only establish uniform laws for immigration article 1 section 8:
To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.
Preferring one group of people over another group of people bypassing the naturalization process is not considered a “Uniform rule of Naturalization” bringing in a group of people who will vote for socialism who are uneducated and unskilled encouraged to use the welfare state to benefit the Democratic Party for a new set of a dependent voters and cheap labor by big corporations displacing the American workers when the jobless rate is so high
The President can not enforce the Dream Act that did not pass congress by executive orders. Why?
in a 1952 Supreme Court Ruling of Sawyer vs Youngstown. The President can not legislate by executive order.
Only Congress can make law under Article 1 section 1 states:
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
Not the executive branch of government.
It does not take a constitutional scholar from Harvard to see Obama and the democrats shipping in these children from south of the border to be a political weapon against the American people.
Washington DC has broken its contract with the states and the people. Washington has seceded from the states and the people long ago. Therefore the people who are the governed must take control on our own because there is no relief coming from the Federal government.
The first duty of the US Military and Border Patrol is under Article 4 section 4:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
Sworn officers in the Border Patrol or part of the Armed Forces have no legal or moral obligation to obey orders repugnant to the Constitution that pose a danger to our posterity. It is time to disobey the lawlessness that poses a threat to our republican form of government by bringing in a hordes of people who do not embrace our values and have a third world culture that refuses to assimilate to American values that made us great.
Just following Orders is no Excuse.
I came across this article from a Tea Party website this morning. it is about time if it is true is that the states or We the people secure the border instead of waiting for Washington DC to act. So far, I hear nothing happening to stop Obama’s lawless invasion from the southern border by passing the rule of law.
I hear of rumors of Gov Perry thinking about calling forth the militia organized or unorganized. I say do not wait for orders from Washington or Austin. Take personal initiative and secure the border regardless. It our country and we live here. Enough is enough.. We either grab the bull by the horns or we will lose our republic.
The Militia is every able body man under Title 10 of the US Code. Even though I do not trust Gov. Rick Perry no more than I trust Dick Cheney to say invading Iraq was a bad decision. The State Legislature and the Governor,s office are being hammered with calls to take action from people all over Texas.
Gov. Perry has the legal authority to call forth the militia to execute the laws of the state and the union to protect state repelling invasion under Article 4 section 7 of the Texas State Constitution:
He shall be Commander-in-Chief of the military forces of the State, except when they are called into actual service of the United States. He shall have power to call forth the militia to execute the laws of the State, to suppress insurrections, and to repel invasions.
The states have the legal and moral authority to call forth the militia to counter Obama’s invasion from the south. I hope Texas leads the way stopping this insanity on the border and the hemorrhaging of our borders stop.
Here is part of the story:
Yesterday, there were two separate call outs on the internet indicating that the militia members were needed on the Texas border. One call out indicated the militia members should stand by for orders.
Rick Light on Facebook:
I will be busy this morning because I will be in a meeting with our Local Judge and Sheriff about the Border issue here in Texas.. I ask all Texas Militia personnel to standby.. Lets do this as the Professionals we are.. I will update ASAP..
Mr. Light, a credible militia source, is now posting that Governor Perry has indicated interest in using the militias in tangent with the law enforcement border surge that he announced yesterday.
Update.. RE: Border Op’s for the Texas Militias.
I was just informed that the Governor is interested in using the citizens Militias of Texas in this issue. We need a SOP written up and given to the Governors office for a eyes and ears OP along with Detainee OP’s that is coordinated with the Local and State Law enforcement. So I call on our Texas Commanders to step up and help with the write up.. Time for a phone convention ASAP.. Please get the word out.. I am asking for the Stand down order to be respected until the SOP is approved by the Governor of Texas. I call on The Texas State Militia, and other Texas Militias to assist in the effort.
If this operation moves forward, militias in other states are offering their support deeming this a national issue as opposed to just a Texas problem as indicated .
