Psalm 140 – How Pertinent is this for February 14, 2021?

Note: I was set to publish this short post when the power went out. It was not restored until February 19 at about 6 PM.

Once again, an old testament Psalm rings as true today as it was when it was first written:

Psalms 140:1   Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
2  Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
3  They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah.
4  Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.
5  The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set gins for me. Selah.
6  I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
7  O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
8  ¶Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.
9  As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
10  Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
11  Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.
12  I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.
13  Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.

Violent men spew forth poison. They seek to entrap the righteous. The seek to destroy us.  Note this phrase in verse 11:

“evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.”

This indicates to me they will be swallowed up of those things they worship.

Three Fingers Back At You – Dems!

Today Faux, er Fox News (they still actually get SOME things right!), posted this article… if you can still read it.

In yet another attempt to exert control over former President Donald J. Trump, Chuckie Schumer want to evoke the 14th Amendment to permanently keep Trump from any office.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

The 14th Amendment to the Constitution says that Congress can bar people who “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” against the U.S. from holding office. It was originally meant to prevent former Confederates from serving in the government after the Civil War.

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof,” the amendment says.

Yesterday, I pointed out who the real insurrectionists are and, gee whiz, I hate to say this Chuckie, but YOU are at the front of the line! YOU are leading the charge to try former President Trump for the impeachment charges brought by the House. BOTH actions are EXPLICITLY unconstitutional and thus they are acts of rebellion and/or insurrection.

If that is not clear enough Chuckie, allow me to spell it out for you: Defying our constitution, abusing said law of the land for your own political gain is, in itself, an act of TREASON.

You and your comrades SHOULD be hung for all to see. I will gladly settle for the immediate resignation of all involved. I would much rather do so than have my fellow citizens and myself suffer through a host of arrests and trials. Oh yeah, trials. As a citizen of this constitutional republic, I absolutely believe in DUE PROCESS. Maybe you could dust off one of your old law school books or borrow one, if need be, and look the term up.

The United States is a Constitutional Republic – We Citizens Are NOT Insurgents

An insurgent definition via Grrrgle: “1 : a person who revolts against civil authority or an established government especially : a rebel not recognized as a belligerent. 2 : one who acts contrary to the policies and decisions of one’s own political party.”

Key word here “revolts” as in revolution as in revolutionary. This defines those who desire to transform our nation into a democracy or a socialist/communist state. Our nation is none of these things. Our nation is a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. Pardon me for raising my voice but this term seems to be overlooked again and again.

What is a constitutional republic? It is a nation founded by a document called a constitution. Said document expressly limits what our government can and cannot do. Ours also expressly defines in ten amendments certain God-given rights to ensure they are protected. This document provides a framework for us, as citizens to govern ourselves. WE are the “government” so to speak because WE are endued with the authority to govern ourselves via elected representatives.

Thus, as citizens we cannot, by definition, simply be labeled “insurgents”. I was going to say “unless we act forcefully against our own government” however, after a second thought this does not fall within logical parameters. Consider this: those charged with enforcing the law of the land are allowed a certain amount of leeway when it comes to using force. Our nation as even resorted to violence countless times against individuals and even other nations. Even in our own history The Battle of Athens, TN (AKA the McMinn County War)force was used when corruption was rampant. These citizens were not “insurgents”. They had no intention of overturning or overthrowing their government but rather restoring it. My contention here is the use of force alone does not define insurgency. Force must be justifiable, ultimately in a court of law in necessary, but it cannot be the standard for defining an insurgency. Neither does an act or acts by one or more citizens justify the use of force. Certainly, even some of those trying to forcefully transform our nation into something we are not are, by definition, insurgents.

In short, there must be another way. First we, as citizens of this nation must recognize a true definition of “insurgency”, whether said definition follows my ideas or not. Second, we citizens must accept the responsibilities endued upon us be birth or naturalization. We need to step up, claim our right to govern ourselves and throw the true insurgents out. We need not do this violently. We have the force of the law of the land – our constitution. As for those who are truly insurgent, there is a simple standard we can apply to our representatives: have they voted or supported laws or actions contrary to constitutional constraints. At this point we need only ONE metric – this last impeachment and trial of Donald J. Trump.

It does not take a legal scholar to understand the wording or intent of an impeachment. It is to remove a sitting government official. Donald J. Trump is not. That is all. End of story. Thus those voting to impeach this private citizen or continue with this blatant abuse of their granted authority are themselves unfit to continue in office. We need to stand up and insist they not only stop this instant, but immediately resign from office. Once we rid ourselves of these political hacks, we can continue to purge our respective governments of those who would corrupt the foundational document of our nation. Note, by “purge”, I in no way mean anything violent but simply demanding they step down.

This could be the rebirth of our constitutional republic, however it will not happen on its own. It can only be the result of citizens stepping up to our rightful place.

A Republic… if you can keep it!

The following is reposted from a comment I made on the Kuckledragginmylifeaway blog.

Ken caught my attention when someone called T. L. Davis a troll and he stated he knows Mr. Davis and he is no troll. Until Ken stated that I did not know Mr. Davis authored this piece.

Here is what I posted:

T.L. Davis is an exceptional patriot and man. I, too, have been privileged to have some contact with him so I can say this from personal experience. He is no troll. What surprises me is his last paragraph:

“One method is to start at the county level and establish your rights there. Then, build out from that one county at a time, if necessary. The first order of business must be to deny federal troops or agents access to the county in any form for any reason. They are the enemy or the messengers of the enemy, they told us so.”

Reclaiming our nation county by county is something I’ve been advocating myself for some time now. My own inspiration is primarily from Virginia’s 2A sanctuary movement. While the results were arguably vague at best, the sheer demonstration of the will of WE the PEOPLE was stunning. Note, the scamdemic arrived just in time to short circuit this movement and stop it from spreading nationwide. No, I am not offering up yet another “conspiracy theory”. I am simply noting the correlation. No one knows what would have happened sans the wuhan flu. The movement might have fizzled on its own or never morphed into something more powerful. There is nothing stopping us from picking up and moving forward.

On another note – I was likewise surprised to see the Oathkeepers advance this idea.

“Muster NOW in their county seat. Meet face to face and sort out grid down comms and who will be “Home Guard” and part of a “Family Safe” program to stay back and protect families, while also determining who can project out to protect and assist others. Do it now before comms go down.”

While one must consider the context and other things advocated by them, I am encouraged by their acknowledgment of our county seats being the center of our concentrated power as citizens.

I am encouraged every time I see the prospect of local citizens gathering in our respective counties to make our desires known. I contend this is the only way our republic can be restored and move forward. Once this principle takes hold, there will be no stopping us.

Again, here are the quotes I took from Twelveround and Oathkeepers. There is no direct link to Oathkeepers as I doubt if you’ll find the post on the same page. At the time I read this, they were being attacked with denial of service either from the outside or the inside, I do not know for sure.

T. L. Davis – Twelveround.com

One method is to start at the county level and establish your rights there. Then, build out from that one county at a time, if necessary. The first order of business must be to deny federal troops or agents access to the county in any form for any reason. They are the enemy or the messengers of the enemy, they told us so.

Oathkeepers:

“Muster NOW in their county seat. Meet face to face and sort out grid down comms and who will be “Home Guard” and part of a “Family Safe” program to stay back and protect families, while also determining who can project out to protect and assist others. Do it now before comms go down.”

For those of who would scowl and dismiss this idea… what else are you gonna do? Whine some more? Vote harder next time? Wait for that knock on your door? Please. Tell me. What, exactly is you idea? Or have you already thrown up your hands in surrender?

Your Mother Knew… and So Do You!

Every family has secrets. Some come out. Some stay hidden forever. No matter what the secret, chances are Mom knew. She may not know what. She may not have any details but she knew something was wrong. She might ignore it. She might deny it, but she knows something is amiss. Fast forward to the 2020 election.

We are all “Moms”. We know this election stinks – no matter what side of the political spectrum you side with. Maybe you want to hide your head in the sand. It won’t work. The stink pervades everything. Start with the very basis of the voting. First the decree that “everyone” has the right to vote. This is dishonest. No, “everyone” does NOT have a say in our nation’s business. The right to vote is conferred with citizenship. Period. This is the very basis of our constitutional republic. In almost every other instance I will defend the right of someone to refuse to present “papers”. When it comes to voting – it is essential ONLY citizens are voting and thus must present proof of citizenship in the form of a valid voter id.

As for the claim require a voter id somehow discriminates against the poor in our nation – get real. The poorest in our nation qualify for financial help from our governments – local, state and federal. While I personally feel this, in itself, is entirely beyond the framework of our constitution, the simple fact is, our governments take from those who produce and gives to others. In the process, they must identify themselves. In other words – the poorest in our nation are by no means without the means to produce a valid government id. Sorry but that “argument” holds no water.

Of course the radicals on the left go even further by claiming everyone has a right to vote regardless of citizenship. This is absurd. They may as well claim the oceans are really made of soda pop. Of course one must not drink the ocean with a straw but otherwise… My point, for those who need the word “cat” spelled out is, anyone can claim anything but claims do not make anything so.

The bottom line is: not only did the cheaters cheat and cheat big – but they open defy even any sense of the rule of law. This is to the point where they even deny any wrongdoing at all. All of a sudden they are acting like there is no possible way there could be any funny stuff about this election. This after nearly four years of “investigating Russian collusion”. Why the sudden turn about? We all know why – because their man came out on top, that’s why. So what do we do about it?

At the time of this writing the state of California has certified their election, giving Joe Biden enough electoral votes to win the presidency. Is that it then? From my understanding, no, as legal challenges concerning the validity of certain electoral votes remain. I expect the Supreme Court will eventually weigh in. That said, as of now, it appears Biden and Harris could be inaugurated in January 2021. What then?

There’s been talk of war on both sides. The left has been waging guerrilla warfare for years now, lately in the form of attacks on police, riots and other violence upon our nation’s citizens. Their propaganda war has been in full force for an even longer period of time – decades, actually. For the most part, those of us on the right have taken to open and legal means to elicit changes – voting, truly peaceful protests and court challenges, among other things. While one could point to a handful of instances attributed to
right-wing actors, those are not only far and few between but also quickly denounced by nearly everyone on both sides of the issue. You cannot say the same for violence perpetrated on the left. Is this what our nation will resort to? At least one observer believes we are already involved in a civil war. His points are well taken. The problem with this is nobody will win such a conflict. Either the left will destroy our nation to erect an new openly communist state or the right will devastate the land in an effort to save it. It is a no-win situation. Is there an alternative? I believe there is only one way.

We Christians must repent and turn to God Almighty and His Son, our Lord Jesus the Messiah, for the salvation of our nation. It is the only way. Scoff if you will, but in doing so, you will be denying the Lord that bought you with his precious blood. Our nation is in this current sorry state because we turned to the world and subsequently turned our backs to God.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

We see these things happening before our very eyes! I say to you, you can either renounce this evil or you will be counted with those who do such things – whether or not you join them. Isaiah was not finished:

Isaiah 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

25 Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

Do not forget this was prophesy specifically unto Israel and not onto those of us in this Grace Administration. Even so, can you be so confident and believe you are immune? Seriously? Look around you!

Verse 24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust

Is this not happening before our eyes? Do you not see our nation crumbling? LOOK around you! God Almighty will not protect this nation simply because some of us who claim Christ as Savior remain here! Look at China, Russia, Venezuela, Taiwan, Iran – the list goes on and on. If we want our nation saved – if we want to reclaim the blessings He bestowed upon us – we MUST ASK!

James 4:2 …ye have not, because ye ask not.

Simply asking is not enough – consider the context of the above verse:

James 4:2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

There is more to this than these two verses. I urge you to read James in its entirety. Here are a couple more highlights.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

Ask yourself… what will war bring us other than a broken and destroyed nation? Would you rather our land be restored? Those who promulgate evil yearn for our destruction. This is not speculation – they have said as much over and over again. Their minions have literally burned large parts of our nation’s cities. This is the path they would lead us on. We must resist but our resistance must be Godly if it is to succeed.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

As Christians, in this nation and all over the world, we’ve turned away from God Almighty and turned to our own lusts. Many no longer believe God can or will step in. We’ve walked so far away from God, many no longer believe God has the power to change the course of their own lives, much less the entire nation. Many do not believe God parted the Red Sea, brought down the walls of Jericho or raised the dead. If God Almighty cannot raise the dead then did He then not raise Jesus from the dead?

1 Corinthians 15:12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?

13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:

14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.

19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

I know there are many among us who believe. It is you whom I now call upon to turn to God in prayer. Pray for His deliverance. Pray for Almighty God to step in to save our nation. Repent of whatever secret sins you’ve been hanging on to and ask for forgiveness. You know He will forgive you. Our nation can be restored but it will not happen by taking arms.

One more admonition – do not think just because I quote the “Old Testament” so frequently, these words have no application today. As I have shown, the state of our nation and the world speaks loudly. However there remains other indications of my words. Below are just two songs written by modern artists. One of these – Rick Pino – proceeds his song with what is described as a word of prophesy. The Old Testament proof of a prophet was whether his words came true – 100%.

 

God bless,

Is Psalm 94 Prophetic of today?

Judge for yourself.

Psalms 94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.

2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.

3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?

4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.

6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;

13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.

19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.

22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.

As gun owners, we always feel on the defensive when it comes to our second amendment rights. We are used to the barrage of attacks that come our way, and we are used to standing up to them. So far, our rights mostly remain intact. However, it is still hard to refrain from imagining what the future may bring.

Pushback

There has been a consistent feeling among many on the left that the US is behind the times when it comes to gun control. They look at other countries in Europe with lower homicide rates and attribute that to their more restrictive gun policies. Many gun owners will be aware that the breakdown of gun deaths reveals a different story. Roughly 60% of gun deaths in the US come from suicide. In this case, it is not guns that are the issue. The issue is people who are suffering enough to consider suicide. When it comes to murder, gun deaths are split between everything from police shootings to gang violence. On these issues, gun control rarely offers a solution, and the “scary black rifles” the media tends to go after do not make up much of the weapons used in shooting deaths.

However, unless people are willing to look into these numbers, the argument is convincing. People have empathy, and they want to see violence end. Simply banning firearms sounds like an easy way to curb gun deaths to many. A cursory glance at the platforms of many politicians, including the Democratic nominee Joe Biden, shows that banning certain types of firearms and limiting gun rights in other ways is near the top of their platforms.

Beyond the federal level, there is always the possibility of individual states going the way of California on firearms. As unconstitutional as it may be, restricting gun rights is always a bill and an executive signing away.

Not All Doom and Gloom

For a start, there are still millions of Americans who care deeply about their gun rights

However, the politicization of gun rights restricts its value. All Americans have the rights to defend themselves. No group of people does not deserve to be protected. There has been evidence lately that many left -leaning Americans have been changing their minds on gun control. Data collected over the past year shows a large percentage of gun buyers have been first-time gun buyers.

This seems to largely be a response to the many crises of 2020. The coronavirus pandemic started the year off with a bang. Toilet paper flew of the shelves. Meat became hard to find. Shelves in stores were no longer guaranteed to have fresh vegetables. This scared people, and not without reason. People were faced with a situation in which food and other basic necessities were not guaranteed. Throw in the uncertainty of how the pandemic would play out, and people were drawn to gun stores. Some were worried about potential rioting over food. Some were interested in being able to hunt for themselves. Many Asians felt that they needed to be able to defend themselves with the bigotry they had directed towards them over the virus’ place of origin. Then, the tragic death of George Floyd sparked protests and riots across the country. Many business owners and other people felt the need to gain a way to protect themselves. At the same time, the slogan “armed minorities are harder to oppress” rang true for many.

Through all the tragedy of 2020, many found a new appreciation for the Second Amendment. According to a study by the NSSF, roughly 67% of gun buyers this year were purchasing a gun for the first time. In most years, this number hovers around 25%. Along with that, around 40% of them were women, and around 58% of the first-time gun buyers were African American. Many of them bought modern sporting rifles, like AR-15s, and many bought shotguns and handguns built for home defense to keep them and those they love protected. These are groups which, demographically, tend to lean left and tend to be underrepresented among gun owners. This signals a shift that may be larger than is currently seen among these groups. For a start, anytime the right to bear arms is expressed by more Americans, the country is helped. On the political side, the gun rights side may be growing its numbers.

Will It Survive?

It is impossible to predict the future. Will another mass shooting spur a reactionary movement to ban firearms? Will the influx of new gun owners change the way the Democratic votership views firearms? Will things simply remain stable for the foreseeable future? These all seem possible, but the US has a rich history of enfranchising people with rights. The optimistic side suggests that the outlook for the Second Amendment may be positive in the coming years.

What He Said…

What I cannot tell you is whether I’ve finally realized how much I agree with what John Whitehead has been saying all along or if we both think along the same lines. No doubt he says it better. Funny thing about this is he quotes late comedian George Carlin whose succinct words mirrors both of ours.  This article sums it up. The bottom line? We are owned.

Here is John…

The Election Has Already Been Hijacked and the Winner Decided: ‘We the People’ Lose

 

 

Election: November 2020. Have the Controllers Already Won?

This is what I keep asking myself. Yesterday my wife asked me if we should get “our mail-in ballots”. While my response was I will vote in person if at all possible, it led to a discussion about whether we will be “allowed” to vote at the polls. My thought was if mail-in was made mandatory then mail-in ballots would need to be sent automatically to all registered voters. She thinks we will have to initiate the mail-in process. Who’s correct? My bigger question is: Will it even matter? Think about this.

Two Scenarios

The first scenario has Trump winning and another four years of controller sponsored chaos. Already the controllers and their sycophants, such as Hillary Clinton, are pushing the idea of not accepting a Trump win… again. (yes, Hillary, face it, you are nothing more than a useful idiot and your usefulness is now relegated to whatever name recognition you can muster.) Remember four years ago when Hillary raised this question about whether Trump would accept the results? This was when she had the presidency in the bag… lady.

Now it is quite reasonable to assume Trump will win a fair election so the controllers are preparing to once again reject the will of the people. Last time they ignored the electoral college and pointed to the “popular vote”. What they accomplished in my mind at least was demonstrating the true value of the electoral college. Even further, I believe we citizens should reject the “winner take all” doctrine of some states and insist the electors be free to vote their conscience. Period. Instead the controllers are pushing in the opposite direction towards “democracy” i.e. mob rule, and away from our democratic republic. Already much massive voter fraud at the polls has been uncovered in the last election. I suspect this is how the controllers finally seized Virginia. Mail-in voting could well skew the election towards the controllers. More on that in a moment.

Back to a Trump “win”. If he does indeed win, the controllers are prepared to ramp up the chaos. We can expect more riots and more resistance by both those controllers in office and in the streets led by professional agitators. Yes. More. We’ve seen this already. They are not going to stop. Unless WE citizens put a stop to this, they will continue to do all they can to demolish our society. They have nothing to lose so they will continue until we stop them or surrender. The way things are going this could well mean a win for the controllers.

Scenario Two: A Biden Victory

We can all decry the terrible things Biden’s puppet masters would do under his nose. Do not be alarmed at this as he would likely approve if he had the metal capacity to do so. What I suspect is the controllers anticipate something other than a peaceful return of the reins of government to their grimy hands. They want war. How did I conclude this?

First we have every indication of the controllers intention to brazenly steal this election. We all know it. Few of us can fathom anyone giving a single thought to their vote pulling the lever for this clown. The only intelligible words he has spoken have been gaffs. “I am J… uh, I… uh, can I get a glass of ice cream?” (Yes, I made that up but…) The only conclusion we can come to is IF Biden wins, it will be because of a massive effort of the controllers to steal the election. For all I know they may even start bragging about it.

We, as citizens will have two choices – accept or reject the results. Again, either choice is a win for the controllers.

In the unlikely event that we reject a Biden victory, we will then be forced to take to the streets in protest. Unlike our counterparts, our protests will be peaceful. At least until the controllers roll out the troops and start shooting us where we stand. They may allow their current crews of agitators to “counter protest”, raining violence in citizens until they are “forced” to step in and stop “our” violent rioting. They will continue until we are either eliminated or subdued.

And if we accept a Biden “win”? They will keep pushing. They will do all they can to further strip the republic and solidify their control. Again, their intention is to eliminate or subdue anyone who resists bowing to their authority. Never mind said authority was stolen. Never mind their total disregard for the founding document of our nation – our constitution. Control is all that matters.

The bottom line is the controllers are making every effort to back the citizens of this nation into a corner so we are forced to either submit to their stolen authority or die. It matters not what corner we end up in so long as they can force check and mate. What choice do we have? Does this mean we cannot win? Have the controllers won already? No. They have not.

There is an alternative. It is right in front of us – right under our own noses. Even better, this alternative is peaceful and entirely legal. As a matter of fact this alternative embraces the very law of our land. What is this alternative?

It is reclaiming our constitutional republic. This entails more than mere “voting”. The controllers have zero authority not granted by us citizens – WE THE PEOPLE. What they have done so successfully is replace our republican form of government with their political “two-party” system so that no matter what party wins, the controllers remain in control. It is sad to realize this but the controllers corrupted our republic from the very beginning. I do not believe this was the intent at first. When our nation was in infancy, even in the womb – so to speak, it was necessary for strong men to lead the way. Thus nobody was taught the principles of republican government in the early days or since. At least if anyone was taught these things, said teachings were lost. It is now time to understand and deploy a true republic.

The strength of the controllers is centralization. Controllers rule from the top down and a central seat of power is necessary to accomplish this. They gain wealth and power via their ability to extract wealth from citizens and rule us through laws and regulations. Is it any wonder why their response to any situation is always more government?

As citizens of a constitutional republic WE have absolute authority to govern ourselves. It is the law of the land. We do this by electing representatives. In doing so we delegate to them some of our authority. What authority? The authority to enact and enforce laws. This authority is limited – first by the law of the land, the constitution itself. As citizens, WE also have the authority to overrule our representatives at ANY TIME. Our only restraint is the law of the land… the constitution. We do have the authority to amend, change the constitution itself, but this is necessarily a difficult and arduous process. This is intentional because it would be foolish to make such changes without sound deliberation. Even so, certain changes have been made, such as the 17th Amendment, allowing Senators to be elected by popular vote – i.e. mob rule, rather than elected by the State Legislatures. The original concept was a safeguard to preserve state’s rights and allow ALL the people of a state to have a voice.

A constitutional republic is the basis for a decentralized government. WE retain the power. We retain OUR authority by voicing and voting our will locally. The controllers have usurped our authority by consolidating and centralizing power and authority. While the political “two-party” system is one of their primary tools, their control now reaches far beyond this. They have entrenched themselves in the very government itself – the deep state – and within the military-industrial complex. As is obvious to anyone truly aware – the controllers almost entirely own the media propaganda machine as well as social media. That said, the power the controllers wield and the authority they have assumed is a smokescreen. They can only hold on to it as long as WE LET THEM!

What can I do? I’m only one little guy?

After all if you can’t fight city hall, how can you take on the United States Government? This is the beauty of our constitutional republic! As individuals we are essentially powerless. Yes, one man or woman could gather together a militia unit or even a group resembling a small army. They could gather weapons, legitimately or not (bear with me here), they could train and become an effective fighting force. And they could easily be squashed like a bug. Sure, one could tout the Afgan resistance or even the IRA but what, really would any of this truly accomplish? My point is while arms are indeed a valid and necessary component – such can only be a last resort because invoking such tactics basically destroys the very thing we wish to preserve – our nation. This is NOT how to restore our nation!

So… What?

If you want to see a real-life example of how a republic should work – consider the VCDL – the Virginia Citizens Defense League. This small group focuses only on Second Amendment Issues. They led the 2A Sanctuary movement in Virginia in late 2019 and early 2020. EVERY county and city government was forced to vote on whether or not to declare themselves a 2A Sanctuary and an overwhelming majority – over 95% did just that! The real power in this movement was the turnout by citizens in support of 2A Sanctuaries. Such action would not have been necessary if not for the illegal and treasonous actions by the Governor and State Legislature. Virginians are not done yet either. This is just the beginning. However the actions of the citizens in Virginia demonstrate how a republic should operate.

Citizens did NOT protest in the streets. We did NOT just flood representatives with emails letters and faxes. We did NOT simply write letters to editors. WE SHOWED UP at our county board meetings in force and demanded action! While the message sent to our state AND federal representatives was largely ignored – the message was clear. Now… we can NOT let up!

While this is just a fleeting thought – it does seem strange our nation was hit by a pandemic just after citizens in Virginia flexed our authoritative muscles. Coincidence? Possibly, even probably BUT – this pandemic surely put the skids on citizen action in our own communities! Yet somehow “peaceful protests” – riots are perfectly acceptable. Think about that.

The bottom line is WE CITIZENS wield true authority and power in this nation. It IS the LAW OF THE LAND. Those sitting in plush accommodations paid for by US consider themselves the “ruling class”. Such is an abomination. ANY “representative” or party “official” or anyone else for that matter who ascribes themselves to this “ruling class” should be immediately be forced to resign in shame.

Enough is enough. It is time for the citizens of this nation to reclaim our rightful place in this nation as self-governing individuals who directly elect representatives to serve our interests. My own interest is a return to a limited government by scaling back government intrusion into our lives.

Have the controllers won already? Yes and no. If WE THE PEOPLE, the citizens of this nation do nothing, we might as well bow down to our rulers now. This is something I am not willing to do. If I and I alone standing against these forces of evil am swept away, so be it. To paraphrase Emiliano Zapata… “I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees”. How about you? Will you stand up for what is rightfully yours or kneel to tyranny?

Why The FIRST Amendment Secures Freedom of Speech

Sometimes it takes me a while to catch on, even to the simplest concepts. For years whenever I considered the First Amendment to our Constitution, I mostly wondered why our right to keep and bear arms came second. Only recently did it dawn on me why our freedom of speech is enumerated before our right to defend ourselves and our nation.

First take note: freedom of religion is at the very TOP of the list and rightfully so. One can argue till the end of eternity, if one was to believe in such, about whether the founding fathers truly believed in God Almighty or what they believed. No matter what else one can say, it is indisputable where they placed the words “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”. Here is the First Amendment in its entirety:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Freedom of speech comes second, followed by freedom of the press (i.e. the right to PUBLISH ones words). As for the final two: “or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” one may wonder if these should be rendered collectively or individually. Why not both? I see no reason to insist one activity be dependent on the other.

Please understand, I am in no way saying the order of our declared rights specifies any inherent ranking. That said, could there be some sort of “divine design” in how these are ordered?

As a Christian, I am obligated to put God first and foremost in my life – or at least make every effort to do so. Fallible as I am, I cannot count how many times I’ve missed this mark. Even so, acknowledging God Almighty is most important to me. I fully believe this is important to God Himself also. So take it as you will. After all you have every right to believe or not, but I see an incredible divine logic in the placement of the very first declared right.

Coming back to our freedom of speech, has anyone else ever wondered why the founders considered this so important? For me, this goes far beyond the simple freedom to speak one’s mind or to write one’s thoughts. It goes deeper than this – way deeper. How so?

Think about it – what is speech but the formation of words and what are words but the expression of thoughts and ideas? Dig deeper. This is basic. It delves into the very nature of human existence. It is what rises us up to the top of all earthly life and sets us apart from every other living thing.

Words. Thoughts. Ideas. Along with the capacity to express them, the very ability to form them are crucial to our lives. Ideas are far more powerful than any weapon conceived by mankind. Our nation was established by them. Wars are always fought because of them. All of our lives… our very existence centers around the words we think, say and act upon.

The most feared weapon in the world is not the “Bomb” – it is the TRUTH! It is the bell that cannot be unrung. This is why the controllers and their media minions first attack all truth with lies, then move to silence all who oppose them. They know their falsehoods cannot stand against truth. They know once they are exposed for the frauds they are they cannot easily regain the trust they gambled. This is why they are determined to shut down all dissidence. This is why our freedom of speech is prominently included in the FIRST amendment!

This truth reveals another potent truth – words are powerful. Scripture is called The Word of God. Our Constitution consists of words. A picture may say 1,000 words, but a few words, properly crafted into a meaningful phrase can change the world. Consider the following words:

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Those of you who believe know exactly how powerful these words are. Those who reject them shall one day find out.

First Amendment or not, our freedom to worship God Almighty, our freedom of speech is not something granted by men. Nor can mere men take these away. They do not have such authority! No matter what happens in this nation, no matter what nation you are a citizen or subject of, your freedom is granted to you by a Holy God in Heaven. You need not ask permission.

In this nation, these United States, the controllers will attempt to shut down anyone who speaks the truth. They already ARE doing this and making inroads. Speak the truth – this will overwhelm them. They cannot stand against a Holy God. They are powerless against the truth. The controllers know this and this is why they are making every effort to eradicate our First Amendment rights. No matter what happens God will have the final say. It is written.

God bless,

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.
