Independence Day Revisited…

Today we commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The full text of this Declaration is included below. Many of the colonists grievances do not apply today. No “king” denies our liberty. In his place we’ve established “our betters” to do what no king could do… rule us with an iron fist.

Our forefathers bravely put forth the radical concept of self-government. They put documents in place – the Articles of Confederation and later the Constitution for the United States of America to secure the rights and liberties of the newly freed thirteen sovereign states while providing to include additional states in their merry band.

Their vision was only partly successful. While our nation itself thrived economically, partially due to the enormous resources inherent in this continent and partly due to a relatively free economy.

Then greed and the money men took over. They bought politicians. They used their influence to smash competitors with regulation and rape the citizens via taxation – the very things the colonists fought and died over.

Now the money men – the controllers have this nation in a death grip. Many no longer even live here. Most others can relocate elsewhere at their convenience – all the while exacting pounds of flesh from us citizens.

Laughably, some promote racial wars by demanding reparations for the slavery in our past. Why is this laughable? Because we are slaves of the controllers in the here and now. They own us and they know it.

Remember our Independence. I am sorry to say, true independence is not even something anyone alive today can remember. It was stolen from us long ago.

All is not lost. While some are sure to mock me, we do still have the framework to reclaim our independence – our right to self-government. To accomplish this we need to stand up as citizens and demand a return to our constitutional republic.

Throw out the money men – dissolve the political parties – dismantle the onerous deep state and start fresh.

God bless,

Andy

The following text is a transcription of the Stone Engraving of the parchment Declaration of Independence (the document on display in the Rotunda at the National Archives Museum.) The spelling and punctuation reflects the original.

In Congress, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. 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.

General Flynn Agrees

Thanks to ZeroHedge.com, I saw this op-ed from recently vindicated General Flynn.  While we may differ on certain points and approaches, we have very common ground on the principles!

Exclusive from Gen. Flynn: If We Don’t Act, 2% of the People Are About To Control the Other 98%

Many (okay two of the three) readers here probably know what the III % means – the estimation our own Revolutionary War was fought and won by a mere 3% of the population. General Flynn’s article somewhat mirrors this concept while turning the tables in favor of the radicals… or rather their controllers. No doubt there are those on both sides familiar with the tools used to seize control in many circumstances.

Once again I say there is a better way – a peaceful way. We have the one tool required to not only restore our nation but to actually establish a true constitutional republic. This tool is our Constitution. It is our basis for self-government. However WE must learn to use this tool effectively if we are to bring our nation back from the brink of utter destruction.

God bless,

Andy

 

 

Are We There Yet?

The first question I’d expect you to ask is… “Where is there?” For the sake of argument lets call “there” The point of no return.

For tickles and grins here’s a great song by Kansas by the same name:

Why ask this?

Let’s see just recently we’ve seen how a corrupt administration used a pile of three-letter agencies and “the law” to spy on American citizens including a president-elect.

We’ve seen sitting US Senators charged with profiting from insider information.

We’ve seen strong evidence of systemic abuse by former public officials while they are in positions of political power.

We’ve seen current public officials defy the Constitution of the United States and their own state constitutions by issuing all kinds of unconstitutional decrees.

Today, I saw an article vial Zerohedge.com detailing

EXCLUSIVE: Bill Gates Negotiated $100 Billion Contact Tracing Deal With Democratic Congressman Sponsor of Bill Six Months BEFORE Coronavirus Pandemic

This last bit especially makes me wonder… are we THERE yet? Will we, as a nation, bow down to the likes of  these controllers to allow them the power to follow us everywhere? To spy on us anywhere we go?

Even if this goes away… do you really think it means a “win” for liberty? It does not.

Long ago in my first sales job as a stockbroker – i.e. a glorified salesman for a stock of the month club – part of my job consisted of “qualifying” the prospect. In essence I had to find out how much money he had to invest. I naively asked:  “How much of this should I go for?”

My boss said “ALL of it!  Then settle for as much as you can get.”

At some point I realized how wrong this approach was, but that is beside the point. The point here is this is exactly the strategy of the controllers is… always. They set their sights on far more than they know they can get, then they “settle” for less. And they always come back for more!

Now… suppose we actually see some “huge uproar” concerning Bill Gates and company. Don’t count on it but just suppose… what do you think will happen? Yep. The controllers will “settle” for a lesser plan. Don’t worry they’ll be back for more and more and more.

My question to YOU is… are you ready to put a stop to this nonsense? The controllers have NO RIGHTS to our liberty. None. WE have FULL AUTHORITY under our constitution to govern ourselves. If WE do not like some law, rule or decree – we have EVERY RIGHT  to tell our representatives to back off – to either cease and desist entirely or find another way to achieve a goal we find worthy.

We have stewardship of this nation and thus WE have the RESPONSIBILITY to ensure our representatives and our public employees follow the law of the land – the Constitution. This means the citizens of this nation should be insisting those public employees bent on usurping power and authority they DO NOT HAVE be brought up on charges of treason. In my eyes their attempts are attempts to suborn the law of the land and institute their own version of government in place of the framework laid by our respective constitutions.

Their goal is obvious: replace our constitutional republic with their own lawless rule. If we do not act and act quickly we will pass the point of no return. I ask again…

ARE WE THERE YET?

God bless,

Andy

We Are ALL Connected – Just Ask the NSA…

Ran across an article posted on ZeroHedge bySimon Black of Sovereign Man  It concerns a book about a contact tracing tool developed and used by the NSA.

The bottom line is they can and do keep track of all of us via any contacts we make with anyone – phone, text, email – probably carrier pigeon as well. All paid for by OUR tax dollars of course.

My question is why are we paying for the controllers to spy on us? Once again, it all has to do with centralization and bigness. The federal government is a massive monster. As we’ve all seen with the Trump/Russia drama, it is totally out of control. How do we fix this? You are not going to like my answer. At the very least it will make most people quite uncomfortable.

We need to dump it all and start fresh from the bottom up. Decentralize. Most of what goes on in DC happens behind closed doors. Even our vaunted defense program is not worth the money or effort we put into it. Does this mean we get rid of all the expensive toys we’ve bought for the military? No. Not really. However I’d say there are a lot we don’t need. I’m not expert enough to even make any suggestions but we can tackle that later.

Before anything gets done, we need to take control and accept our stewardship roles as citizens. Anything beyond this is fantasy. Heck, maybe even the idea of a “2A Sanctuary” type movement to reclaim our birthright is too dreamy to actually happen. I don’t know. All I can do is keep plugging away in hopes some of you will see the light and make some noise.

God bless,

Andy

 

The Supreme Beings Have Spoken

You need not guess, I speak of the robed thugs who make up SCOTUS – the Supreme Court of the United States.

This from Fox News: Supreme Court rejects challenge to limits on church services  . Blah blah blah. You know what guys? Thanks for your “opinion” but no thanks. Now for the REAL news…

I, personally, REJECT this SCOTUS opinion.

There. Take that.

The fact is, this is far from the first time SCOTUS has sided with the controllers. It won’t be the last. As citizens, we’ve been conditioned to accept them as the last word. Even in our language SCOTUS rules. They. do. not. WE rule. WE are self-governed. Once again it is up to US, the citizens of this Constitutional Republic to take our rightful place and overrule the controllers.

With no disrespect intended for those few in the group who actually uphold the constitution – SCOTUS can bite me. YOUR ONLY JOB is to ensure the other two branches comply with constitutional limits. Period. ANY doubt should ALWAYS be decided in favor of the citizens. Is this clear enough? If not, see me after class. Yes, I AM speaking you Justice Kennedy!

Do not think I’m letting the rest of them off the hook. As Chief Justice, Kennedy is the leader of the gang. Thus I expect him to lead the others in adhering the the absolute principles of our Constitutional Republic.

Keep in mind guys and gals, your “lifetime” appointment is still subject to impeachment. While such a thing may seem like a pipe dream to you, let me remind you, a mere six months ago, the idea I’d have to write something like this never crossed my mind.

When are WE going to step up as citizens, take up the reins of stewardship, and put the controllers in their place?

It is time.

God bless,

Andy

 

Censorship on Facebook, Twitter and the President

Already I posted my opinion on Twitter. President Trump is expected to sign an Executive Order concerning Social Media – i.e. Twitter, Facebook and company.

Now the actual EO was signed and published, I realize my assumptions about this action was wrong.

Bluntly put I’m tired of the endless “Executive Orders” by whatever administrator all taken with the force of law. In our nation executive branch employees do not write law. They administer them. They enforce them. The legislative branch writes law. This is why they are called the “legislative” branch. My apologies if this comes across as “splaining” but really. We all get caught up on this crap. Enough is enough.

Now what CAN an executive do? He/she can direct their administration to enforce the law as long as said law is in compliance with the Constitution(s).

I wrote that yesterday. This morning I realized the President’s executive order was right on the money.

Again from what I wrote yesterday…

Now about the Twitters and Facebooks of the world. Get this straight – I despise them. I am not a naturally “social” person but these things are a waste in and of themselves. This is not to say they are not entirely unuseful. I just do not like them. That said, they are private enterprises. They have EVERY RIGHT to censor whom they wish. One need not like it but we CANNOT allow any government to dictate what a SM platform can or cannot allow. This in itself is a form of censorship.

There is ONE exception I can see. As you may know from a previous post, I am involved in a discussion concerning Governor Ralphie’s dictates on a Lunenburg County FB page. This is the format the county BOS has settled on to inform the public. Apparently their WordPress website is to complex for them. In this instance, the FB page is essentially a public forum

While I stand by what I wrote, I had no idea these entities were granted special protections from the Federal government. I even understand the reasoning behind the special protections. My understanding is such:

Entities providing a platform for free speech are protected from lawsuits holding them accountable for the actions of those who publish their opinions on these platforms.

It almost irks me to say this but this actually makes sense. I’ve operated forums before, I have one available now, that neither one of my two readers use by the way, and I had no idea such protection existed.

In light of this, I applaud you, Mr. President!

God bless us all!

Governor Ralphie N Ramping Up Assault on Constitution

Continuing his assault on our Constitution, governor Ralphie Northam now decrees masks are mandatory for all citizens in public places. Again his action flies in the very face of our God-given rights. From my perspective it is an unlawful attempt to circumvent our very Constitutional Republic and replace our lawful government with his own personal dictatorship. In short, his actions are the very definition of treason.

Before I go any further – below is a graphic illustrating the argument against wearing masks:

Not even the science is settled, but the question here is… even if science ends up vindicating his stated reasons – by what authority can he issue said orders? There ONLY authority he has is what is granted by our respective constitutions and by the citizens of this commonwealth.  Even as citizens, we do NOT have the option to override the Constitution of Virginia. We may alter or abolish it, but we cannot overrule it.

As such I posted on Lunenburg County’s FB page my concerns and called for the county Board of Supervisors to overrule the governor.  I doubt very much if they will respond without a great deal of pressure from other citizens. I would be surprised if such pressure built into anything larger than a fizzle. However, I cannot, in good conscience at least do my own small part. Here is what I posted on FB.

This FB battle rages. Okay, maybe it is a bit dramatic but there is more since  I pasted this thread together. The bottom line is not everyone agrees – only four people have responded at all – how sad. The dissenters insist our rights are not being infringed upon. Well, if you insist… uh, no.

If there is substantially more, I’ll update it.

God bless,

Andy

Are Lockdowns Constitutional?

Fresh in my mind is a debate on the Bayou Renaissance Man. You can read the post and the comments for yourself. The op – Peter Grant is a man I find often reasoned and thoughtful. His post here is as I would expect of him. Note he is a naturalized citizen, thus he can claim no “birthright” to our constitutional republic. That said, even his right to liberty is a gift from Almighty God. As far as his legal standing is concerned – spiritually speaking – he has every bit as much right as any other citizen in this nation. My point here is while the term “birthright” specifically means someone who has a right simply by being born with it, such does no preclude one who has earned his/her place in our nation. If anything, I’ve found most naturalized citizens tend to take their citizenship far more seriously than those of us born with the “silver spoon” in our mouths.

Onward. While I did not read all of the comments I got far enough to discern the part of the debate I’ll address here: Is the current “lockdown” status existing in much of our nation constitutional? From my perspective, the answer is absolutely not. Let’s explore.

My first and foremost question is: by whose authority are these lockdowns decreed?

In every case, some elected, public official waves their magic… wand and poof! Suddenly they become totally and absolutely in charge. Or so it seems.

Here in Virginia, governor Ralphie, claims his authority by statue passed by the state assembly and, of course, signed by a sitting governor. Well, that’s that then… right? Not in my book. Consider and extreme example.

Suppose the Virginia Senate and Assembly pass a bill with, say, a 100% vote in both houses. The governor immediately signs the bill into law. The law gives any group of five or more citizens the authority to lynch anyone found molesting a child under five years of age on the spot. The only criteria is the the molester must be caught in the act – with his pants down… so to speak. Pretty simple. Would this be legal? No. We all know why.

Even someone as despicable as this must have due process. We cannot skirt the constitution no matter how abhorrent the crime. My point is simply passing a law does not make it constitutional, thus the claim of “It’s the law”, is not sufficient.

Now allow me to frame my previous statement in light of today’s headlines. We cannot skirt the constitution no matter how frightening the threat. We just cannot allow this to happen. There is no “pause” button on the constitution. Furthermore there is no need.

We can argue the “science” all day. The quotes are there because right now even the term “science” is up for grabs. So far science has produced a dud. As a matter of fact, the science followed by those who are at the headwaters of this debate – those controllers who want to lock us all in our rooms – is questionable at best. Is the “herd immunity” theory any better? Who knows? I sure don’t. So can we just stipulate any science involved here is more conjecture than a sure thing? Let’s move on from there.

Whether the response to this pandemic is good, bad or just plain “iffy”, the devastation left behind is just now starting to show. As bad as things look now, they are likely to get a lot worse. Even so, the citizens of this nation have mostly cooperated even when the “orders” are just plain stupid. Stupid as in “while sunshine kills the virus, it remains illegal to step into the sunshine because… virus.”. Only a politician could embrace such horsepucky.

I am certain the citizens of this nation would have responded responsibly without draconian decrees. What if I am wrong? Well, here’s where things get interesting. There’s this thing called a “tort”. A tort is a civil wrong. And there are also these things called a “criminal law”. You see, these same legislatures could make it a crime to infect someone and someone infecting another could be held financially liable.

Is this ideal? Far from it. I’d day such would be a nightmare to enforce and may well be tossed out of the courts anyway. Wait a minute… does that mean personal responsibility for spreading a virus could be held… unconstitutional? So what’s the answer?

How about we stop living in fear? How about we stop trying to find blame and make someone else pay for everything that happens? How about we go on about our lives rather than insulate ourselves from any and all potential issues?

One way or another this virus will run its course. Either way we are left with the aftermath. No matter how this pandemic was approached we would all end up about where we are now… questioning the effectiveness of the response and dealing with the details – all the while arguing about who is right about what. Like any of this will get us anywhere.

Back to the constitutional question, we are either self-governing or we are not. None of us were taught the civics lessons we needed to fully deploy a truly constitutional republic. Long before any of us were born the politicians divided up the citizenry like so much meat.

I’m glad Virginia’s 2A Sanctuary movement was mentioned. To me this may be one of the most significant events of my lifetime. Is this due to the results of the movement? No. The results, while satisfying encouraging as they were, proved ineffectual. No matter. There was a great civics lesson here for all us citizens. We can assert our authority and when we do, we make things happen. Granted, what “happened” turned out to be not so much BUT – this was far more demonstrative of our inherent power and authority than most anything in our lifetimes! It shined a light upon a path. The question now is… will we follow that path?

On the Road to Hell

In a moment I’ll link to an important read from John Whitehead at The Rutherford Institutite but first, my two-cents worth…

The old saying goes “The Road to hell is paved with good intentions.” When I look at what our “representatives” do day in and day out, I very much doubt this. Oh, they certainly pay lip service to “good intentions” but their real intent should be clear to anyone looking with a rational eye. They want power. Power is their end all and be all. With it they also gain wealth -OUR wealth. You need not take my word for it. Just look!

This pandemic throws back the curtain, revealing the true nature of those now in power. Witness their unbridled lust for power. In the article below John Whitehead details what is happening RIGHT NOW in the present.  These are not “conspiracy theories”. They are not visionary predictions. It is all going on right before your eyes. The question is what are YOU going to do about it?

The Slippery Slope to Despotism: Paved with Lockdowns, Raids and Forced Vaccinations

The only real power these despots have is what WE let them have. As citizens in this Constitutional Republic WE have the authority by right of birth. The controllers control. This is what they do. It is their nature. Their nature does not confer the authority to control any more than your natural tendency to procreate confers the authority to commit adultery. OUR authority, OUR birthright is a gift from Almighty God. With our birthright, we are endowed with stewardship of our nation. If we decline to step up and accept the responsibility inherent in our birthright – we will lose it all.

The ball is in your court.

God bless,

Andy

Big Laugh!

Saw this in my internet wanderings today…

While I totally agree, it is laughable because we citizens have put up with this disgrace for decades. Said permission is as ingrained in our psyches as the ideas of government-dictated “minimum wages”, social security and a plethora of “mandates”.  Get real.

Now the controllers are breaking down our doors to collect the balance from our down payment. The bill? Our liberties. ALL of them. That is what they want and, unless we put our feet down, that is what they will get.

Permission to carry a gun? Please. Soon we will be asking permission to pee.

Have you had enough yet?

God bless,

Andy

The Clampdown

Yesterday, I urged you to get off the sidelines. Since then, Ken over at Knuckledraggin’ posted the article below:

American Thinker: Police State Dry Run A Huge Success

I’m reposting it here as it details what I was saying yesterday about the controller’s attempt to choke off our Republic. I only wish I had the time to do such research and writing!

Setting aside some gloom and doom, some profess hope that our economy can rebound. It can, of this I have no doubt. We are a nation of workers for the most part. However we are quickly becoming a nation of sluggards. The controllers desire the latter. Free men pose problems. Slaves, chattel or not, are much more pliable.

Yes, our economy can rebound but to what end? Will we slide back into producing to enrich our masters or will be break off the shackles that bind us – those tax, borrow and spend parasites controlling our nation and start fresh?

As I wrote before – if would only muster the will to tell the controllers to bug off once and for all – restore local control and run our nation as intended: from the bottom up as self-governing citizens – we would unleash a juggernaut championing freedom. Said freedom would embrace both economic and individual freedom and would flood the world in prosperity.

God bless,

Andy

Battle Lines Forming – Where do YOU Stand?

No one needs a crystal ball to see the present. The controllers demand obedience. Citizens – SOME citizens are pushing back. Here are some notes on the swirl of events without comment:

Elon Musk defies Alameda County shutdown orders, opens his Tesla plant. County officials back down.

Michigan citizens swarm Lancaster in protest of Governor’s lockdown.

Pennsylvania counties pledge to reopen for business despite Governor’s orders.

Wisconsin Court rules lock down unconstitutional

Citizens are exercising our prerogative to overrule overzealous politicians. That’s a good thing, but let us not overlook the rest. In other headlines, citizens are being arrested for “civil disobedience”, the controllers are rolling out new technologies to spy on citizens such as infrared cameras on drones and other devices geared towards monitoring every step we take. Other controllers propose mandatory testing and even “papers” to  carry and present to prove citizens have jumped though whatever hoops they deem prudent.

No matter what concessions are won in the short term, the controllers will shoot for long-ranging controls to maintain leverage their power. This battle has just begun. The question is: where are YOU?

The simple fact is, most citizens will remain on the sidelines, watching the show. Such things have always been this way. In this case, watching is loosing liberty. Our government – our TRUE government – our Constitutional Republic is a SELF-GOVERNMENT.  Participation is our duty if we want it to work. That so many sit on the sidelines is the very reason for the  mess we are in today. Your country needs you!

When WE THE PEOPLE show up in force  – things happen. Good things. The controllers fear us and they should. They also despise us and we’ve earned that. As long as we allow them to pull the strings, they can laugh at us as they make us dance to any tune they wish.

The battle lines are drawn. Whether liberty prevails or the controllers tighten their grasp is up to you. Are you in or out?

God bless,

Andy

 

MAD and the Economic Scorched Earth

During the height of the “Cold War” we all became familiar with the concept of MAD – Mutually Assured Destruction. The crux of the concept was – if the Soviets tried to nuke us into oblivion, we would nuke them off the face of the earth. Everybody loses. Yes, it was also called the “Scorched Earth” policy. MAD was a better term because the entire idea was indeed insane. My question is: is the Wuhan virus the globalists’ version of MAD?

First off, let’s not talk “conspiracy” huh? Instead, how about we think in terms of “opportunity”? Whether or not anyone planned on unleashing this virus on the world is a moot point, at best. If this was someone’s plan it turned out to be a bungled mess. When the smoke clears there is a good chance fear of the virus tallied more deaths than the virus itself. Likewise the aftermath – the totally irrational response to the so-called “danger” the virus presented. Bluntly put, I seriously doubt if any of the “elites” are competent enough to pull such a stunt off. They would find a way to drop all the balls. And yet… here we are in a nation, a world actually, almost totally shut down and firmly in control – or so they think – of a handful of controllers. Please, do not give the controllers too much credit. As ruthless and sociopathic as they are, they aren’t all that brilliant. What they are is better described as cunning and opportunistic.

Consider a common career criminal who happens to be walking down the street planning his next mugging. Suddenly an armored truck swerves in front of him and crashes. Miraculously, the doors burst open revealing bags of cash. It just so happens the truck takes out a delivery guy making his last run for the day. His van is left running a few feet from the wreckage. It is empty, seemingly waiting for someone to fill it up and drive away. What does the criminal do? Why, he fills his pockets and runs!

Of course not. He fills up that van and takes off. Chances are he will not live “happily ever after”. He will find some way to screw himself out of his good fortune. I see so many parallels here.

Compare the career criminal in our story with the “elites”. ‘nough said. Regardless of how highly they hold themselves, the “elites” are mere fallible humans just like the rest of us. In some ways they fall far below the curve because they have no clue what it means to live as the majority of citizens. They are, in a word, insulated from our reality. The fact is they are failures in a failed ideology. They will scoff at this as they ponder what gourmet snack to scrounge from their $24,000 fridge but what will they do when their power goes out? I mean, after their generators fail, of course. But I digress…

Career criminality aside, the “elites” must ultimately fail. I say this with such confidence because their basic premise is flawed. While centralization is their ultimate brass ring – it is also the very reason the “elites” have to fail. Remember the adage “don’t put all your eggs in one basket”? Cliche’s are cliché for a reason. Reality will bite them in the ass. What I’m asking is not if but when? Will they take the nation down with them? Unless we stand up, reclaim our authority and put a stop to this nonsense, it is very likely they will at least succeed in scorching the earth beyond recognition.

What the Controllers Want

No secret agendas here – the controllers want control. It is what they always want. Joe “Malarkey” Biden and Hilary “What Difference Does It Make” Clinton have BOTH stated this is the perfect time to “radically transform” our nation. While I cannot find a reference to Clinton’s statement I did find this one from when she endorsed the bumbling one for President:

“It needs to be part of a much larger system and eventually and quickly I hope gets us to universal healthcare so I can only say amen to everything you’re saying,” Hillary said. “This would be a terrible crisis to waste.”

Yes, she actually said that. You just can’t make this stuff up!

Meanwhile, yes, ol’ Malarky Joe said exactly how this was an exciting opportunity to “radically transform the country

What do they want? More from the town hall event:

The discussion between the two top Democrats featured sharp criticisms of Trump along with an expansive progressive policy wish list: higher minimum wage, universal health care, expanded unemployment compensation, abortion rights, paid sick leave, subsidies for domestic violence victims and protections for the federal program known as food stamps.

Already unemployment benefits pay more for people NOT to work. Can anyone honestly say this is an incentive to get the nation moving economically? Meanwhile Nancy Pelosi and others are proposing a basic monthly income for all. Such can only end in two ways. Such a system will either break under its own weight or make slaves of us all.

Meanwhile the nation’s economy continues to disintegrate. Food is being dumped while the stores are empty. Food may soon be the number one issue facing all of us. We all need food and shelter to survive. If you live in a city – God help you. For those of us in flyover country – it is time to regroup.

Recognizing what is happening is the first step but what can anyone do about it? My own solution is simple – not easy but simple. We need to decentralize. What does this mean?Start now. Start locally. Start right at home. Plant a garden for goodness sakes! If you have a garden already, consider expanding it. Think now about how you will preserve food. Prepare now for a hard winter. If it never comes. If I am totally, absolutely 100% wrong – what have you lost?

Next, gather your friendlies. Find out how you can help them and how they can help you. Make plans and preparations to join forces if necessary. Recently I read something that partly stuck because it made a lot of sense. Basically, it said the key to surviving is to be with about 30 people who care about each other. There may never be a need to gather around one location but it would not hurt to have a plan to do so.

Finally, gain control of your local government. This sounds more radical than it should. I do not mean any sort of “rebellion”, but simply showing up at local board meetings to offer your input. We are a republic. We are self-governed. This means your opinion not only counts but it is your duty to help guide those we put in place to represent us. This duty belongs to all of us citizens.

Planned crisis or not, the controllers are bound to take every advantage. This is their golden opportunity to entrench themselves in our lives. They are not “masterminds”. For my money they aren’t really all that bright. One needs not be intelligent to be cunning. To an extent, I agree with them, but I see a different opportunity – one where WE THE PEOPLE reclaim our birthright – our Constitutional Republic. This is OUR opportunity to beat back the failed centralists, to exercise our God-given authority to govern ourselves while establishing a system that works from the bottom up as it was intended.

God bless,
