The following is from an e-mail message I received a few minutes ago from the Tea Party PATRIOTS organization; American Patriots standing for Our Liberty, under God. 

The video is a moving, inspiring testament to the true American Spirit awakening across our Great Nation, under God, as we face the Assault on Everything that IS America by the now-proven beyond doubt, TYRANTS in Washington, D.C., who are actively and blatantly transforming Her into a tyrannical police state.  Please consider sharing it with others in whatever way you can.

Why We Fight


Here is a story of courage that you may have missed.

In the face of doomsday threats from our government and their media foot-soldiers, one man stood up for America in Washington DC.

His name is Joel Kurtinitis.

He stood up and spoke out.  “I am scared out of my mind,” began the home builder.  But he summoned the courage to stand up and speak up for America because, as he said, government is “so huge and bloated and overbearing that I can’t live my life without that dysfunction spilling over into my life, and my business, and my home.”

Joel courageously led everyday Americans to make DC listen and to send DC a message that we will not be locked out of places that are ours.

This is why we fight.  We fight for, and we fight alongside, Americans like Joel Kurtinitis.

Even as DC Police and Park Service Rangers threatened arrest, Joel stood his ground. He stared tyranny in the eye and did not flinch, he did not blink, and he did not back down.  He knows he is not one of the privileged classes in DC (he is not a well connected lobbyist, an elected official, or a member of the bureaucracy with people to call to pull strings) and he realizes he is likely going to be arrested for standing up to the abusive power.

[The following links will take you to the Tea Party PATRIOTS’ website article and the video, “Home Builder from Iowa Retakes National Monuments,” at: http://www.teapartypatriots.org/2013/10/home-builder-iowa-retakes-national-monuments/  Itasca]

It is shameful there are not more Senators willing to do the same for our freedom. I am thankful to those in Congress who have stood up for our freedom. It is even more shameful that President Obama is arrogantly abusing his authority to silence our First Amendment Rights and to use brute force and turn monuments that are testaments to freedom and liberty into a police state attempting to show that the government is more powerful than the people.  Patriots realize that the real power comes from being free and standing up for our freedom.

We fight for freedom because freedom is worth the fight. If you feel you are alone in this battle, remember this man and know you are not alone. There are millions of you around the country and together we will restore our Constitution!

We too must stand up to send a message that we will not be locked out of places that are ours whether it is Memorials on the National Mall paid for with our hard earned tax dollars, or it is our health insurance we have purchased and maintained for years, our jobs that until recently could be 40 hours a week without penalty to us or our employer, and our access to quality health care because our doctors could practice medicine. We will not let DC take these things from us. They are ours. We are born free in America and we intend to stay that way.

In the last 48 hours we have seen the negotiations on the continuing resolution, the ACA/Obamacare, and the debt ceiling deteriorate to the Ruling Class negotiating with the Ruling Class and the American People currently do not have a voice at the table. We are getting no meaningful relief from this unworkable, unaffordable health “care” law.  The House and the Senate need to go back to the negotiations to find a way to provide real, meaningful relief to the hard working Americans who are losing their jobs, their hours and wages, their health insurance, and their quality health care because of Obamacare.

Worse than the offers we have seen from Congress in the last 2 days is the behavior of President Obama.  As the House offered the President 100% of what he asked for with 1 small string attached, the President refused to budge. The House was willing to give the President a clean Continuing Resolution, a clean debt ceiling increase with the string of making themselves and the Executive Branch live under the President’s namesake, signature legislation. The President refused that offer and showed his true colors: he is unwilling to live by the same laws he seeks to impose on the people, like a petulant child he is unwilling to negotiate at all, and he has the “audacity” to think he can single-handedly write laws from the Oval Office. That is not how our system of government works. All laws are to be applied equally to all people and the President does not have the authority to legislate by press conference and press statements. Congress is elected to represent the will of the people and has a duty, responsibility, and obligation to provide a check to unbalanced power.

That brings us to today’s call to action.  It is time once more to make phone calls, tweet, post on Facebook, and make your voices heard. You see your voices are what those with power in our country fear the absolute most. DC Police, Park Services, Congressmen, Senators, and most especially the President of the United States do not want to be reminded that in our great country the ultimate power resides with the people. We must make our voices heard once more. There is no done deal yet in Congress.  It is still a possibility the House of Representatives will listen and provide relief to us from this law.

So, call these people now:

  1. First and right now, call your Congressman and then after that call both your Senators.  Tell DC they need to do their duty and protect the American people from Obamcare and that this is their last chance.  Tell each one that they represent you and that you demand meaningful relief from the health care law, which is harming you and people like you across the country because you are bearing the burdens of lost jobs, lost insurance plans, lost access to quality health care. You cannot afford this law and it is morally wrong for them to impose a law on you that the President himself is unwilling to live under and which you simply cannot afford. Thank the very few who have stood for our freedom time after time, vote after vote without compromising their principles and hold the rest accountable. House Directory, Senate Directory
  2. Call Sen. Mitch McConnell (202-224-2541) and tell him you know he has not had the House of Representative’s back. You realize that some of the bills the House has passed are not to your personal liking and you know the House has been making good faith, bipartisan efforts to open the parts of government where we find agreement. You expect him to do the same and not sacrifice our freedom and health care for his personal position of power.
  3. Tweet about Park Services to your US Senators and Congressman using #LandOfTheFree and #OpenOurMonuments. Park Services exists to protect our parks not to treat us like subjects under a police state.  You are calling for a full investigation into their behavior and will demand those responsible for the police state actions are held accountable. Specifically call on @MarkUdall who is Chairman of National Park Services Committee to let our vets visit and to reopen the 911 Memorial in PA.
    Recommended messages and sample tweets for Twitter:
    .@MarkUdall As Chairman of Nat’l Parks Cmte, you must let our vets visit the monuments! #LandofFree
    .@MarkUdall Nat’lParksComte Chairman, must open Shanksville Flight93 9/11 memorial immediately. #AmericanSacrifice

Call now. Our freedom is worth fighting for. Our freedom is worth standing up for. Remember our Support Team Member Keli Carender’s favorite quote by Sir Winston Churchill:
“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Stand up now like Joel Kurtinitis did this weekend.  All odds are not against us – yet and it is not too costly – yet.

Thank you, Patriots!

In Liberty,

Defund It NOW

“And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The LORD Is My Banner,”
Exodus 17:15

Due to technical problems, I could not publish a post that included videos and still photos, during Senator Ted Cruz’s Don’t Fund Obamacare “filibuster” on the Senate Floor, and still could not publish until now (on a different computer).

To watch Senator Cruz’s opening remarks as he began the 21 hour and 19 minute marathon “filibuster,” and read comments from supporters, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7zQ3TKEUmM&feature=player_embedded#t=0

[I tried unsuccessfully to embed the video here.]

I absolutely agree with the valiant Congressional efforts to
DEFUND the ABOMINATION that is Obamacare,
NOW!!!

Implementation of this Crime against America,
at any point,
would drastically accelerate the plunge
we are taking over the
Edge of the Darkest Abyss!

The effort is NOT LOST!!!

There will be two votes in the Senate; the first will be Friday Morning, 9/27.  This vote will make it seem that all 46 Republicans are voting to defund Obamacare – don’t believe this ruse!

The real test is the second,

CLOTURE VOTE
on either
Friday or Saturday!!!

If this vote PASSES,

Harry Reid will lead the Democrats in a

SIMPLE MAJORITY OF 51 VOTES TO STRIP THE DEFUNDING PORTION OF THE BILL, PASS THE REST OF THE BILL, AND SEND IT BACK TO THE HOUSE TO FORCE THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS TO STAND OR CAVE!!!

If it FAILS to PASS,

Reid and the Democrats (and Socialist Bernie Sanders) MUST garner
60 VOTES TO STRIP THE DEFUNDING!!!

Reid and his followers want to send it back stripped as part of their false demonization of Republicans.  That would make their claims that the Republicans want to “shut down” the federal government believable to those who do not know the facts.

This Continuing Resolution Bill that the House passed with ONLY Obamacare defunded,

FUNDS ALL OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
FOR THE NEXT FISCAL YEAR!!!

INCLUDING FUNDING THE REPUBLICANS WOULDN’T OTHERWISE SUPPORT!
THEY ARE THE TRUE COMPROMISERS HERE!!!

It is the Democrats who are holding the government hostage to defend the “Train Wreck” that is Obamacare, in the words of their own colleague, Max Baucus, who was the principal author of the Bill.

If you want your senators to vote to defund Obamacare NOW,
they MUST stand on principle, trust God, and
VOTE NO on CLOTURE!!!

But, there are still too many Republican senators who do not understand the critical timing of defunding it NOW.  My own senators are in that camp, especially John McCain, who has thrown all caution to the wind and has become a shill for the Democrats in wrongly characterizing the constitutional aspects of Checks and Balances; conveniently ignoring the FACT that it is the DUTY OF CONGRESS TO CORRECT LEGISLATIVE MISTAKES – no matter how a majority vote passed it!  To put it another way,

IT’S YOUR JOB, SENATOR!!!”

In the same vein, the United States Supreme Court

DOES NOT HAVE CONSTITUTIONAL POWER TO AMEND A LAW,

NOR TO DECIDE IT’S CONSTITUTIONALITY!!!

And, if the Imperial President vetoes their correction, they must override that veto, as provided in the Constitution.

 

This is NOT IMPOSSIBLE to do!
If a large enough Grassroots Groundswell
inundates Washington, D.C.,
IT CAN BE DONE!!!
With the Help and Blessings of
God Almighty!

They need to hear from as many Americans as possible to truly wake-up and make the right decision.  There are vulnerable Democrats who could still be persuaded to stand on principle and trust God.

So, it is NOT TOO LATE!!!

Please call and/or E-mail your senators as soon as possible.  If you can’t get through on the Washington numbers, you can get the State Office numbers and call there.  You can call, 1-800-FED INFO, or go online to find the numbers.  Or, you can try to reach the Capitol Switchboard at, 1-800-224-3121.

WE MUST REMEMBER,
most of our Representatives and Senators
KNOW
OBAMACARE IS A DISASTER!

They just need to know that the American Majority wants it killed.  And, to have the courage to trust that doing the right thing is in the best interest of their families and of ALL OUR POSTERITY!

If you agree and haven’t yet signed the “Don’t Fund It” petition, you can still do so by going to the website accessed by these two links: http://dontfundobamacare.com/
or,  http://dontfundit.com/

As of 5:53PM, 9/26, there were 1,827,326 signatures!!!

They DO pay attention – they count each signature as representing at least 2 – 3 other people who have not signed!!!  This petition had a huge influence on the House Republicans, helping to cause their sudden unity behind defunding.

~

In the Courts post series I’m diligently working to publish against technical difficulties and other interruptions, I address constitutional violations in and related to Obamacare, with quotes from, and links to the Supreme Court Decision that amended the law and, then, declared the Individual Mandate to buy health insurance a tax to pretend that it is constitutional.  (The post series is rather long, and I’m having to break the original four pages into smaller parts because of the technical issues.)

~

Regarding this current campaign by courageous Congressmen and Senators, to defund the legislation’s implementation, I would like to share two comments I’ve posted on Facebook, along with another author’s excellent in-depth analysis posted on Senator Jeff Flake’s Facebook Page.

I posted my first comment on Senator Jeff Flake and Senator John McCain’s Facebook Pages, during Senator Ted Cruz’s filibuster.  I thought it was respectful and non-confrontational, however, it was to removed/hidden from Senator Flake’s page.  [I don’t know if it is still on Senator McCain’s page; as I was scrolling through the large number of comments there, it appeared obvious that no comments are ever removed from his page!]

Republicans in Congress need to stand together for We the People, the Constitution, and our Nation, under God. If those who claim to be constitutionally conservative would all get on the same page – the Constitution – we could prevail handily, just as President Reagan drew Americans across party lines when they heard him speak Truth with Power and Conviction.

Americans know in our hearts what True American Liberty is, and we know it when we hear it spoken from another American Heart founded in the principles so well-articulated by our Founders in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

We know what made our Constitutional American Republic and the exceptional nation it has always been – until now. Please, Senator, stand for our Freedom to exercise our God-given Liberty, not as victims of radical progressive bullies whom we have allowed to take-over the schoolyard, and transform it from Liberty to Tyranny.

Stand for American Exceptionalism; use the means given to the Congress to overcome a bad law. Defund ObamaCare NOW, not by trying to bring a bill before a Senate that would be fresh from another victory over We the People. The time is now, before any more damage is done and before it is further entrenched by the bureaucratic system it creates. Victory comes when the momentum is swelling from the Grassroots to sweep defeat onto the trash heap of History.

Thank you!

I posted my second comment, 9/25/13, on Senator’s Flake’s page:

Last night and this morning, I heard many examples of the Voice of Reason, as Senator Cruz, et al, expounded masterfully regarding the abomination that is Obamacare.  These valiant Americans speak for our American Republic and for all Americans – regardless of party affiliation – who love Liberty and our Freedom to exercise it.

Please “see”: America is in grave and imminent danger of being thrown onto the Trash-heap of History, NOW!  Not in a few months, not after the 2014 Election, not January, 2015, etc.

Thank you for reconsidering our current danger in order to choose to stand with Arizona and All of America against the Tyranny being relentlessly imposed upon this Soon-to-be Once Greatest Nation in the History of Mankind.
(Minor punctuation and formatting changes were made for this medium.)

The third comment is an informed analysis of Obamacare.  A person other than the author posted it on Senator Flake’s page, also on 9/25/13:

By: Michael Connelly Retired attorney, Constitutional Law Instructor

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession. The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system.

All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government. However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated.

If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed. The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own. The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with!

I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care. This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare [a] direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecti[on] against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though. The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people; The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable. For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.  (Emphases added.)

Barack Obama’s

Big Brother Barack Obama has instituted infrastructure making “1984” a reality in the second decade of the 21st Century.

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”  Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights.

~

“In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”  Thomas Jefferson

~

Elected officials in our Federal Government of both parties have stretched the Constitution beyond the limits.  The Fourth Amendment is clear in declaring the scope of protection it guarantees to We the Sovereign American People, in our inviolate Right to be safe from governmental spying upon our lives, without specific sworn testimony of probable cause that a crime has been committed.

The description, “…persons, houses, papers, and effects,…” clearly shows the  Framers’ intent –

  • my phone calls are a modern-day extension of “my effects;”
  • my internet activity is a modern-day extension of “my papers;”
  • my private activities are conducted in a modern-day extension of my house and/or in the capacity of “my person;”
  • internet activities include an extension of my constitutionally protected “right to travel,” just as is the right to operate and/or ride in a private vehicle and to travel by public transportation.

On the last one, I am confident that the Framers and the Citizens who insisted that this and the other Nine Amendments become part of the Constitution, would agree that modern technology has provided us with many means of “travel” undreamed of in their time.  Not having had such miracles at their disposal, had they been given a glimpse into the Future – our comparatively wondrous time – they would have fully apprehended the freedom of travel that all modern forms truly provide; including the right to travel by horse or carriage when so one chooses.

Claims and court decisions to the contrary, when I purchase the use of a company’s equipment for my private communications and/or “travel” via surfing the ‘net, I do not give-up my right to the private nature of my actions.

The requirement for Warrants is obviously the mechanism for insuring the Right to Privacy inherent in this Amendment.  Blanket Warrants expanded to cover ANY American under the sworn accusation of probable criminal acts other than the person against whom the warrant legitimately issued, are without doubt unconstitutional.

Any finagling and wordsmithing to the contrary is wrong.  Any action taken by government directly, or through intimidation of private entities, to monitor and/or gather private information without probable cause is unconstitutional.

“Laws” to the contrary are unconstitutional.

Just because two or more branches of government collude to pretend lawfulness and constitutionality, does not make it so.

~

Added to the basic fact of the spying, it is also glaringly obvious that the federal government is stealing billions of taxpayer dollars to support and store the information it is gathering on every American, and Others, in this Nation, who owns and/or uses a cellular telephone, and everyone who uses a computer online.  (See below for more on the gathering, storage, and use of our data.)

There is only one reason for a government to amass
such mega amounts of data on its citizenry.

This is not happening to catch terrorists!

It may or may not be used for that purpose.

I, for One, do not believe everything the government says!

The ONLY PURPOSE for such activity is
to use it against the
PRIVATE LIVES OF
WE THE SOVEREIGN AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!

Example on-point: the recently publicized Obama Internal Revenue Service’s unconstitutional treatment of hundreds of citizen groups applying for 501(c)4 status, as it imposed inexcusable processing delays and – with penalty of perjury – demanded that constitutionally protected information be supplied.

DATA COLLECTION DIAGRAM FROM NSA

It doesn’t matter what “party” is in power, the beginning of the surveillance was under the Bush Administration.  The Obama Administration is expanding it exponentially, under the guise of the Patriot Act, Section 215, which DOES NOT AUTHORIZE the metadata gathering from EVERYBODY!!!  But, has apparently lent itself to broad imposition taking advantage of the FISC (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court) having no wriggle-room if the administration presents appropriately written documentation.  For one analysis of Section 215 and its implementation:

Barack Obama has pulled a “Mega Flip-Flop” from his pre-occupancy of the presidency days.  For a video and the article from which the following excerpts were pulled: http://washingtonexaminer.com/obama-now-defends-surveillance-programs-he-opposed/article/2531576

“If someone wants to know why their own government has decided to go on a fishing expedition through every personal record or private document — through library books they’ve read and phone calls they’ve made — this legislation gives people no rights to appeal the need for such a search in a court of law. No judge will hear their plea, no jury will hear their case. This is just plain wrong.” – Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., discussing the Patriot Act, December 2005

“As a senator, Obama warned about U.S. intelligence agencies going on “fishing expeditions,” lamenting the monitoring of innocent Americans’ library books and phone records. Now he calls the collection of millions of phone records — even for those with no connection to government investigations — a “critical tool” in protecting the homeland.”
http://washingtonexaminer.com/obama-now-defends-surveillance-programs-he-opposed/article/2531576

Another excerpt from an analysis of relevant statements from both parties:

(CNN) — One congressman says it’s “shocking” how the Obama administration is now using the Patriot Act. But a senator says the secret court order for American phone records is “lawful.”… Former Vice President Al Gore wrote on Twitter: “Is it just me, or is secret blanket surveillance obscenely outrageous?”  http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/06/us/patriot-act-verizon

THE ACTIONS

The federal government is obtaining data on billions of phone calls without probable cause via FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) Warrant.  On 6/12/13, on Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor,” Senator Rand Paul said that it looks like ALL CELLPHONE CALLS are tracked, not just Verizon calls.  Senator Paul also wrote an article for Fox News.  Both are found here: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/06/12/sorry-mr-obama-constitution-is-not-negotiable/.   Here is an excerpt from the article:

“In the United States, we are supposed to have a government that is limited with its parameters established by our Constitution. This notion that the federal government can monitor everyone’s phone data is a major departure from how Americans have traditionally viewed the role of government.

“If this is acceptable practice, as the White House and many in both parties now say it is, then there are literally no constitutional protections that can be guaranteed anymore to citizens.

“In the name of security, say our leaders, the Constitution has become negotiable….”

The National Security Agency (NSA) is also conducting Internet spying through the servers of at least nine internet service companies.  Everything we do online is open to unconstitutional spying.

Excerpts from the Guardian:

“The National Security Agency has obtained direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants, according to a top secret document obtained by the Guardian.

Prism

“The NSA access is part of a previously undisclosed program called Prism, which allows officials to collect material including search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats, the document says.

PRISM slide crop

“The Guardian has verified the authenticity of the document, a 41-slide PowerPoint presentation – classified as top secret with no distribution to foreign allies – which was apparently used to train intelligence operatives on the capabilities of the program. The document claims “collection directly from the servers” of major US service providers.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/06/us-tech-giants-nsa-data

“The Obama administration is invoking an obscure legal privilege to avoid judicial scrutiny of its secret collection of the communications of potentially millions of Americans.

“Civil liberties lawyers trying to hold the administration to account through the courts for its surveillance of phone calls and emails of American citizens have been repeatedly stymied by the government’s recourse to the “military and state secrets privilege”. The precedent, rarely used but devastating in its legal impact, allows the government to claim that it cannot be submitted to judicial oversight because to do so it would have to compromise national security.

“The government has cited the privilege in two active lawsuits being heard by a federal court in the northern district of California – Virginia v Barack Obama et al, and Carolyn Jewel v the National Security Agency. In both cases, the Obama administration has called for the cases to be dismissed on the grounds that the government’s secret activities must remain secret.

“Over the last week, three main prongs of top secret government intelligence activity have come to light. These are the dragnet collection and storage of Americans’ phone records; the exploitation of data from the world’s largest Internet companies with their apparent co-operation; and the casing of potential targets overseas for pre-emptive cyber-attacks.

“The overarching story is unfolding on many fronts. The internet companies issued similarly worded, strong denials Friday of participation in the data exploitation programs, known by the NSA as Prism. We’ll look more closely today at contradictions between what the companies are saying and what leaked government documents show.”

The “Justice” Department under Attorney General Eric Holder,

wiretapped the phones of twenty members of the press, and personally signed-off on an unjustified and unconstitutional warrant application against Fox Newsman James Rosen.  Holder recently lied to Congress by saying he had nothing to do with such actions against the press just before the Rosen case and Holder’s own involvement becoming public.

The Treasury Department

Already proven rogue in its blatantly unconstitutional actions against groups applying for 501(c)4 status, the Internal Revenue Service is expanding to include 16,000 Obamacare Enforcers, as millions of private, patient medical records have already been transferred into IRS hands.

The infrastructure putting private personal information on every person in America into those “dirty hands,” is well on its way to creating a federal government database that will enable

instant Executive Branch access to ALL OF AMERICA’S PERSONAL DATA, along with that being gathered and stored from cellphone records and the Internet, at the whim of unscrupulous governmental officials and/or “lone wolves” to abuse at will.

The president (now, and whomever that is in the future) will hold unprecedented, UNCONSTITUTIONAL, TYRANNICAL POWER over the lives of every American, and every person residing here to whom the government grants access to Obamacare.

“…I am committed against every thing which, in my judgment, may weaken, endanger, or destroy [the Constitution]…and especially against all extension of Executive power; and I am committed against any attempt to rule the free people of this country by the power and the patronage of the Government itself….”  Daniel Webster

~

In February, 2013, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), in an interview with TV One’s Roland Martin, extolled the virtues of Obama’s campaign database built by his “Organizing for America” campaign.

That campaign organization was later transformed into “Organizing for Action,” a 501(c)4.  I would surmise that this (c)4 was not subjected to months of delay and demands for information that the government has no constitutional authority to gather!

Following is an excerpt from Glenn Beck’s program:

“… Waters praised the President for putting together a campaign database that has information ‘about everything on every individual.’

“…sounds like this is starting to become a hobby of President Obama’s.

“‘And that database will have information about everything on every individual in ways that it’s never been done before,’ Waters said, referring to President Obama’s Organizing for America….

“‘… The inauguration represented the beginning of his second term, but it also represented the countdown to the end of his presidency. And the reality is, like anything else, you better get what you can while he’s there because, look, come 2016, that’s it,’ Martin said.

“‘I don’t know, and I think some people are missing something here,’ Waters said.

“’The president has put in place an organization that contains a kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life,’ she added. ‘That’s going to be very, very powerful.’…

“‘…I know she’s talking about Organizing for America here, but the same people that have put together this NSA thing are the same people that are doing his work,’ Glenn said. ‘This stuff exists and is out there.  Here’s why this is really important:  The line that she said, what he is leaving in place,’ that’s the same thing that those who are against the PATRIOT Act tried to tell dopes like me:  Once you put it in, you never get it out.’…

“‘…It’s the exact point, by the way, you made last week when you were talking about if Hitler had this technology at the time, there wouldn’t be a Jew left on the planet,’ Stu said. ‘That’s because he would be able ‑‑ he would have been able to find them.  He[They] wouldn’t have been able to move, they wouldn’t have been able to do anything.  There would be no escapes.’”

“It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions.  There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern.  They promise to be good master, but they mean to be masters.”  Daniel Webster

Who Are We Really, America?

“… O my people, your leaders mislead you, and they have corrupted the direction of your ways.”   Isaiah 3:12b

Do we really understand the RIGHTS our Constitution and its Bill of Rights, guarantee to We, the Sovereign American People?

There have been abuses of those Rights for decades.  But, they have increased alarmingly since America gave Barack Hussein Obama the office of the presidency.

In the past few weeks, new revelations continue to surface – almost daily, it seems.  Some of the abuses of power during his tenure occupying the office:

  • Using false identification documents,
    http://www.teapartytribune.com/2012/04/13/obama-lawyer-admits-forgery-but-disregards-image-as-indication-of-obamas-ineligibility-damage-control/
  • lying with impunity,
  • Obamacare,
  • billions of taxpayer dollars wasted on his cronies and pseudo-scientific “green” energy,
  • the Stimulus Bill,
  • appointing dozens of unconstitutional “czars,”
  • takeover of car manufacturers with forced closing of dealerships and denial of bondholders rights,
  • calling the Fort Hood terrorist attack “Workplace Violence!”
  • Fast and Furious: the deaths of two U.S. Border Agents and many Mexicans in their own country!
  • Doing NOTHING to help in the Terrorist Attack in Benghazi with four Americans murdered – one of whom was our AMBASSADOR to Libya; did he issue the “STAND DOWN” ORDER?
  • EPA/USDA, etc., abuses of the American People,
  • Internal Revenue Service abuses of the American People,
  • spying on MILLIONS of INNOCENT Americans,
  • refusing to execute the laws of the land,
  • issuing reams of unconstitutional executive orders,
  • changing laws by executive fiat,
  • declaring illegal aliens lawful by executive fiat,
  • presiding as commander-in-chief over persecution of military service members and veterans and throwing God out of our military, while welcoming Islam!
  • aiding and abetting our enemies with financial and military aid,
  • many refugee victims of industrial wind energy forced to abandon their homes to escape the very serious health effects of wind turbine-generated infrasound and other low-frequency sound waves [The author of this blog being just one of them!]
  • ETC.

All of which are abuses of the Constitution and the Bill of RightsTogether, they spell:
T-Y-R-A-N-N-Y!!!

These actions constitute a blatant pattern of deliberate abuse of power and violation of the United States Constitution he is sworn to uphold.  As long as he says what his adoring fans want to hear in his perpetual propaganda campaign mode, they believe lies and refuse to see that his administration is the most corrupt in our history.

“They continually escalate Alinsky tactics to implement their wartime strategy ever-more-openly, as their hubris grows –

Confident they cannot be stopped!!!
How could WE stop THEM?

This Facebook post impressed me because it is a powerful, spontaneous record of mass communications between Americans divided into three “camps” on fundamental questions about our National World View (philosophers call it Weltanschauung), and National Character.  The Facebook statistics show an overwhelming number of responders identified with just one of the three camps.  [More details follow, below.]

AT THE ROOT OF THE LARGEST CAMP,

is America’s Biblical Foundation and Identity; declared by our National Motto, “In God We Trust,” and in the declaration in our Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag: “One Nation, under God.”

“Americans know the truth in our hearts…

“Now, we are in a Gathering Darkness, as the forces of that Rebellion wage war against God and the Liberty and Rights He has blessed us with as the Greatest Nation ever formed upon the earth.  Greatest because of our own prowess and strength?  No, Greatest because,

“WE ARE ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!”

[Quoted from WHO IS Obama Part 4 Heaven on Earth posted on this site.]

THE ROOT OF THE SECOND CAMP

is the politically correct, but historically inaccurate belief that America is not by character, a Christian Nation, but, is rather, an atheistic nation severed from any acknowledgement of the Judeo-Christian God in the public arena. And, that He be eradicated from the hearts, minds, and souls of all Americans.

A basic tenet of collectivism/progressivism is the denial and removal of Judeo-Christian beliefs and The Holy Bible from society (the fictitious “Collective” body):

“The world is bad.
God won’t fix it.
‘We’ can fix it!
‘We’ will fix it!”

THE THIRD CAMP

Americans who tragically believe that our nation is full of racist, white-skinned people who hate all people who happen to have different-colored skin, especially those characterized as “black,” or “brown.”

Another basic tenet of collectivism/progressivism is the division of the people into racial and/or ethnic groups to divide and conquer ALL.

The following link is to a lower-quality video, but it has on-screen & voice-over commentary on racism clear in Joe Biden’s false statement about Conservatives, “They’re gonna put ya’all back in chains,” and Hillary Clinton’s embarrassing and controversial statements. [This site is the only place I could find this particular treatment of the racism angle.]: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=1f4_1345305336
For my original treatment of this and another version of the Biden video, see WHO IS Obama Part 4 Heaven on Earth” posted on this site.

I believe we, as Americans, would do well to contemplate these questions:

  • Is America a Christian Nation?
  • Is America’s Christian Biblical Foundation the reason Her citizens are FREE to worship God, OR NOT, as individuals?
  • Is it why people of other faiths are FREE to worship as they choose, in America?
  • Is it why the United States Constitution protects individuals and individual property rights, based in the Common Law – founded upon the Ten Commandments of The Holy Bible?
  • Is it why the United States of America is the most free nation ever established on Earth – guaranteeing to All the Right to worship according to conscience, while insuring that the government functions by God’s Ten Commandments to effect the most righteous protections of Individuals and their property, and not by rule of men and their whims and prejudices?
  • Is it why the American Republic protects the Minority from the tyranny of the Majority, which by definition always prevails in a “Democracy?”

Each of these questions has only one correct answer:
YES!!!

~

As our Biblical Foundation is under relentless attack

by those who either reject, or do not understand, the intimate structural relationship of God, our Constitution, and the Freedom to exercise Our Liberty under God, the very fiber of our exceptional nation is being ripped-out and burned on the Altar of Collectivism.

Acknowledgement of God’s proper place in the leadership of our government is necessary to understand how our nation functions and prospers. Denying God by rejecting His natural presence in our LIMITED Government denies all the good inherent in that Government’s Constitutional Mandate.

Those who are deliberately rooting-out specifically and exclusively Judeo-Christian values from the public arena on the false grounds of a mythical “separation of church and state,” deny the historical fact that the First Amendment protects Freedom of Religion.

Which implies freedom OF all religion, AS LONG AS NO RELIGION attempts to politically, economically, or militarily enslave the nation, such as the all-encompassing shackles of Islam.  Islam is a statist religious, political and military  system with the goal, Worldwide Domination.

Christianity under the United States Constitution is NOTHING OF THE KIND!

The First Amendment protection includes the right of individuals in ANY CAPACITY in America to live by Christian values and precepts, and to emulate them in their daily lives; including in governmental positions of every kind.

Living one’s faith is not the same as government imposing an
ESTABLISHED STATE CHURCH.

The First Amendment declares:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,…”  First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Those who erroneously invoke the phrase, “separation of church and state” as a clause in our Constitution, are inserting a concept only misunderstood/misapplied since the 1947, Supreme Court Decision in the case Everson v. Board of Education, in which the now common definition was first declared.  The collectivist/progressive-influence in public education picked-up-the-ball and ran with it – indoctrinating later American Generations with the false meaning.

Thomas Jefferson used the phrase to make a specific point in one letter.  Taken out of that context, it is misunderstood and wrongly applied in our day.  Following is an excerpt from an excellent analysis of the First Amendment and Jefferson’s many surviving statements about it.  I highly recommend this article for a clear understanding of Jefferson’s use of the phrase and the meaning and intent of the First Amendment:

“Jefferson believed that God, not government, was the Author and Source of our rights and that the government, therefore, was to be prevented from interference with those rights. Very simply, the “fence” of the Webster letter and the “wall” of the Danbury letter were not to limit religious activities in public; rather they were to limit the power of the government to prohibit or interfere with those expressions.”
http://www.wallbuilders.com/LIBissuesArticles.asp?id=123

The First Amendment prohibits Congress establishing a state religion as existed for centuries in Europe, and in certain of the States.  In which, there is an official established” state religion with attendant privileges and responsibilities.  Since the Constitution‘s ratification, God has always been present in our public arena through individuals, but no established state religion has existed in America.

As long as some Americans choose to equate religious expression as imposition of a state religion, they are falsely representing the true nature of worship and abstinence therefrom, in America.

The very fact that Christians are specifically being singled-out, ostracized and forced into silence while practitioners of non-Christian “religions” are allowed to impose their practices and beliefs into the public arena, is proof that the agenda of those crying, “separation of church and state” are selectively attacking Christianity.

On May 3, 2013, the above photo of the White House with its heading,
“Time to put God back in THIS house!!!”
was posted on Facebook.com.

As of June 9, the “Following” statistics showed 502,683 “Likes,” 26,957 “Comments,” and 85,485 “Shares.”  So, over half a million people clicked on the “Like” button in five weeks.

Many commenters argued whether or not God lives in a house, or in the White House.  Many argued separation of church and state,” with an apparent minority insisting upon the incorrect use of the phrase (I did not read all comments).  A number argued over the accusation those who “Liked” the statement were racists and just didn’t like the Obama Family residing in the White House because they are “Black.”

Those Facebook participants who responded favorably to the title outnumbered those who did not like the statement, by hundreds of thousands!  Of course, a scientific analysis would need a statistical breakdown to apply this “poll” to the whole country.

I found it an encouraging sign, as Collectivist/Progressives dismantle and fundamentally transform America with impunity!

They are the minority!
We must awaken and declare,
“NO MORE!!!”

~

I answered certain of the comments, and share them here.  I do not know if it’s okay to use commenters’ names from Facebook, so I’m going to use the gender and a number for each one, and “—” in the text.

Man, #1:

“God doesn’t live in a house. He lives in your heart.”

My response:

“True, — .  But also, ‘In my Father’s house are many mansions.’  God teaches and promotes the concept of a physical structure representing a place of abode and applies it to multiple physical and spiritual applications of the underlying concept.  He being Spirit, the enduring, eternal concept of abiding encompasses dwelling places beyond the individual human heart.  He is not restricted to one confining, representational type of dwelling place.

“Wherever God in His attribute of omnipresence, chooses to abide, He does dwell. He is Love; if I invite Him to dwell in my heart, by Love He exercises His will and purpose and abides all-around me physically and spiritually.  Thus, He abides in my dwelling with me.

“Hence, if someone dwells in the White House and does not invite God to live in his own heart, God will also not abide in that person’s physical dwelling – or ‘house.’  And, it is quite proper to judge by their fruits whether or not the occupants of a particular ‘house’ are accompanied, in the sense of abiding, there by God.  In His Omnipresent Nature, God is spiritually present, but chooses to allow the occupant Free Will by not imposing Himself in a state of abiding or dwelling therein.

“So, it is possible that God does not dwell in the heart of the occupant. Then, it is also possible that God does not dwell in the White House. But, that does not mean He never will, or never does, dwell there.”

Woman, #2:

“What is needed is for good, ethical, moral, wise men and women to be our leaders in Government. Sadly, that is lacking in many in Congress and throughout the States.”

Man, #3:

“The original intention was to keep government out of the church, but not the church out of the government”

My response to Man, #3:

‘The original intention was to keep government out of the church, but NOT GOD OUT OF AMERICA.’

“The Founding Fathers were well-aware that they were basing the Constitution on the Common Law and thereby on the Ten Commandments of ‘The Holy Bible.’ Further, the 1st Amendment was meant to ‘disestablish’ existing state churches… (‘disestablishmentarianism’ is an important part of American Freedom, applied to the mostly-Christian Americans seeking to abolish established state churches.)

“The motivation was to end the centuries-old European practice of the state imposing automatic membership in ‘The Church’ – for centuries just the Roman Catholic Church – at birth.  Membership was imposed upon every citizen with the ritual of infant baptism and ‘christening,’ which was also later continued by certain nations with their own form of Protestantism that was still closely structured similar to Catholicism.

“Point of interest: this practice was similar to, BUT NOT THE SAME AS, imposition of Sharia in Islamic countries.

“Several American Colonies had followed  Europe and ‘established’ their own form of Protestantism, and ostracized citizens who did not want to comply.  This practice, although centuries old, was NOT that of the Original Christian Church.  It was ushered into European life by the Roman Emperor Constantine, who saw that the adage, “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” could be used to Rome’s advantage when Christianity just wouldn’t die-out.

“This also gave Constantine and those that followed him, the chance to bring paganism into the practices and doctrines of the resulting Roman Catholic Church.

“An excellent historical analysis written by a brilliant Fulbright Scholar from his research of original documents in Europe – circa 1950, is, ‘The Reformers and Their Stepchildren,’ 1964.  Written by Reverend Leonard Verduin, it is available from online booksellers.  His last book, published when he was 101, is also available online; ‘That First Amendment and the Remnant,’ 1998, on the true foundation of the Amendment in our American Constitution.  [I knew Reverend Verduin in his later years, and recommend his highly-regarded works.]

“It is painfully obvious from a cursory perusal of the comments in this thread, that the historical education of Americans has hit a disastrous low.  It is also painfully clear that this is a large part of why so many Americans do not understand that our Nation teeters on the brink of tyranny and enslavement.

“God attacked by those who would destroy America’s Moral Values and Moral Absolutes.  When one does not discern and understand the Good News of Jesus Christ, and His Love and Atonement for All who will believe in Him, he is easily deceived by the lies of collectivism/progressivism, aka: all forms of socialism and communism.  [See WHO IS Obama Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Left Center Right, posted on this site.]

“One of the means to that end is to wrongly define Christianity and the First Amendment, thereby turning the Deceived against all concept of God influencing the hearts of those who lead us.

It is also important to understand that
CHRISTIANITY IS NOT A RELIGION!!!

It is the ONLY faith in the world that is a
PERSONAL LOVE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

“The result of which produces a man (or woman) who believes in governing by righteous and moral laws and not by the whims and desires of those who believe right and wrong are what THEY decide they are.

America is a Nation of Laws because She is founded
upon
the Righteous Laws of God.

“The Collectivist/Progressives are the ones who have created UNJUST laws that are destroying America’s Freedom to exercise our God-given Liberty!  They Destroy, then blame the enslaving results on the Innocent, Freedom and Liberty-loving Americans who plead for a true return to the Constitution and the God-given Rights guaranteed to Us by it.  

THIS DOES NOT MEAN A RETURN TO SLAVERY
AND OTHER UNJUST PRACTICES!!!

The Constitution established LIMITED GOVERNMENT.
Departure from it imposes TYRANNY IN EXCESSIVE GOVERNMENT!
TYRANNY IS ENSLAVEMENT!!!
Tyranny steals property and shackles the Individual!

“With God guiding Her, America was able to learn and grow beyond injustice, such as human slavery, to become the Greatest Nation ever established on Earth.  But, with God pushed farther and farther out of Government, and out of the Hearts of Her People and our Leaders, injustice began to take hold once again.

Only Almighty God can open the hearts, minds, and souls
of Americans and thereby

SAVE AMERICA
from ‘a Thousand Years of Darkness’!!!

Within the Abyss is a
New Darker Dark Ages!!!

When I read Man #4’s comment,

I was immediately reminded how Collectivist/Progressives have deliberately caused division among Americans with charges of racism, and by condemning Early America and the Constitution because of human slavery.  Then, promising deliverance from this false “Straw Man.”

Man #4:

“You know this isn’t about putting God back in the WH, it’s about a Black family being there, and you people can’t stand it. It’s eating at you people so bad you’ll will do and say anything to spread your propaganda, fear mongering and whatever else you people can think of.”

I didn’t attempt to count the replies generated by Man #4’s statement; there were many!  These replies were also divided into two camps: those in full agreement with him, and those respectfully trying to tell him he was wrong and that the Obama family’s skin color is irrelevant to those who oppose Mr. Obama’s occupancy of the office of the presidency of the United States.

Man #5:

“I’m sorry that you really believe that sir….I don’t care if the president is white, black, green, or purple, or any other color….what is important is that this country WAS INDEED founded on our right to worship GOD, and now too many are agreeing to take God out of our public right to honor or worship Him…..and to be honest, I just don’t appreciate any president standing up before the world and stating that ‘we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation’, and as well, I don’t appreciate ANY government telling me WHAT I have to buy for myself, then taxing or ‘fining’ me because I do not comply with their laws that dictate what we citizens of this country must pay out to meet their demands…..such as the ‘Obamacare’ that is being forced on the American public. That title ‘Obamacare’ is in itself is proof that this president is overstepping his bounds as this country’s leader.”

 ~

In my answer to Man #4, I was moved to discuss the elephant in the room,” the persistent currently unfounded charges of racism against ‘White Christian America’ and the reactionary racism against ‘White Christian Americans’ based-upon the terrible institution of slavery that officially ended 150 years ago.  That end came after a long struggle by Christian Abolitionists to overcome the Federal Government’s deliberate perpetuation of slavery.  (Historian Michael Medved, March, 2013, radio show.)

With passions stirred by false accusations, many ‘Black Americans’ seem to focus on America’s long-past slavery, while ignoring the historical fact of human slavery’s prevalence for millenia in ALL nations and of human beings of ALL skin colors.

As a nation, 21st Century America is not racist and
WE
DO NOT want to enslave ANYONE!

It is the Collectivist/Progressives in America who intend to ENSLAVE OUR NATION, fomenting racist hatred and stirring-up the mistaken passions of people like Man #4.

“By their fruit ye shall know them!”


The fruit of the Obama White House is
Destruction of OUR RIGHTS!!!

THE COLOR OF MR. OBAMA’S SKIN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHY SO MANY OF US WOULD ‘LIKE’ TO PUT GOD BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!

I do not deny the injustice of segregation that lasted so long in certain States.  In fact, in the early 1970s, my American Indianfamily members were victims of racism in Oklahoma when they experienced car trouble travelling to my uncle’s funeral.  They were refused timely mechanical service because of the color of their skin, causing them to miss the service.

But, most of America has not been racist for decades, and most of America is not racist in the 21st Century.  The only reason there is racism at all now, is because the Collectivist/Progressives continue to claim it against ‘White Americans,’ deliberately trying to incite reactionary racism in Americans of all skin colors.

They deliberately enact programs calculated to suppress all Americans, and in Democrat-controlled cities and states, minorities seem to suffer the most.  Then, they claim to care about the minorities while crying, “Racist!” laying the blame upon Constitutionally Conservative, Libertarian, and Moderate Americans.

They falsely accuse as racist those who want to protect our Free American REPUBLIC, our Free Culture, and our Free Economy, from foreign nationals breaking our laws by entering our country ILLEGALLY, and from those immigrants who specifically fracture our culture by refusing to assimilate and become cultural Americans, and speak the language of our Nation.

A nation cannot long keep its Freedom and Identity when certain legal immigrants, and foreign nationals illegally present in the country, destroy her cohesiveness from within.  National Borders have been sacrosanct throughout Human History!!!  Borders, Language, and Culture are necessary to a nation’s survival.  [See DO NATIONS NEED BORDERS posted on this site.]

The Collectivist/Progressives seek to foment division between races, ethnicities, and artificially created economic “classes,” to deceive them into keeping THOSE CAUSING their suffering, in-power!!!

My response to Man #4:
[I have added some comments and links, in brackets.]

“Dear —— , I am mostly Chickasaw; also of Choctaw, Sac/Fox, English, Welsh, German, and quite possibly “Black American,” descent.  America was NOT THE ONLY Nation in the world enslaving human beings!  It did, in fact, END SLAVERY, due to Christians who risked and gave their lives for decades to fight the ENSLAVING INFLUENCE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!!!

“And ‘Black People’ were NOT THE ONLY human beings enslaved and/or treated worse than animals!  American Indians also held slaves and were enslaved – in North America and the Caribbean – and were themselves TREATED ABOMINABLY and DECIMATED.

[I don’t recall historical facts telling of Africans being brought to America and annihilated by the millions with plagues, by the thousands in wars and massacres, and by the thousands on Tracks of Tears as Tribes were forced to “relocate,” dying on the trail from contaminated food, disease, starvation and exposure.]

[But, we have moved beyond the horrors of our early history!
The vast majority of Americans do not hold grudges, nor seek revenge for the past.  We are Proud  Americans and do not hold animosity toward our Fellow-Americans, nor toward ANYONE in our Nation – legally or illegally – based on NATIONALITY or SKIN COLOR!!!]

“It is so sad that so many Americans whose skin color is black just won’t hear the truth; the outcry against Barack and Michelle Obama in the White House has

NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE!!!!!!!!!!

“It has to do with more than a century of Collectivist/Progressives, most recently Saul Alinskyites, e.g. BOTH Obamas, Hillary Clinton, and their Fellow-Travellers, deliberately fundamentally transforming America away from God-given Liberty.  [See WHO IS Obama Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4; Left Center Right, and Obama And the Destruction of America, “Green” Quest for Poverty, and other posts and articles on this site.]

“Unlimited government only shackles and enslaves: their goal is NOT what they would have you believe, the plight of Americans whose skin color is black is an acceptable means to THEIR End Goal – an enslaved and shackled ‘Collectivist Amerika.’

“One of their methods has been to use Americans whose skin is black to try to divide and conquer America!  They also try to use We, American Indians, and are using Mexican Americans and illegals to divide to conquer!

“When Americans blame only White People for human slavery, History is being rewritten!  Africans and American Indians were just as guilty as White Americans and Europeans of perpetuating human slavery in America.  [Truth is what we must acknowledge and embrace to forgive and move-on into the 21st Century!]

“Christian America and Great Britain LED THE WAY OUT OF SLAVERY when the REST OF THE WORLD wanted to perpetuate it – human slavery existed from Antiquity through-out all the previous millenia of History.

“Many ‘Third World’ countries still allow slavery, including of Whites!  Especially certain islamic countries.

“Those who are trying to sound the ALARM that America’s Freedom to exercise our God-given Liberty is in Clear and Present Danger; EMBRACE ALL who believe-in America working-through our human imperfection guided by God’s Grace, and Limited Government, guaranteeing every American the Freedom to pursue God-given Liberty.

“It is those who have distorted and perverted the true foundation of our Nation, increasing the power of Government to destroy the Constitution and Liberty, who have created the wrongs they then blame the same Constitution and Liberty for causing, including the past perpetuation of slavery in spite of the freedom many Americans called and worked for in Colonial times and afterward.

“Look at CRONY CAPITALISM with the citizenry-enslaving government regulations that create and promote it, and its unjust consequences, including destruction of small business, and the ever-growing gang takeover of our communities.

No, —— , it is not the color of anyone’s skin
that calls us to resist the

DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA
by the man occupying the White House.

Americans of differing skin colors are used,
and indoctrinated to hate to
DIVIDE and CONQUER!!!

“Would that We Americans of EVERY SKIN COLOR would let God open our hearts, minds, and souls to HEAR THE TRUTH and REJECT the Collectivist/Progressives who use skin color to divide us!

“Please, —— , if you don’t believe your Fellow-Americans of differing skin colors, listen to the Black Patriotic Americans who are standing for the Constitution, Constitutional Conservatism, and American Liberty, Under God!!!

– FOR ANY OF WHOM I WOULD BE PROUD TO VOTE
FOR PRESIDENT, OR ANY OFFICE –

for the dire state of our Nation
that AFFECTS ALL OF US!!!

WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DIRE STATE OF SO MANY OF OUR

Who Are We Really, America?

We are One Nation, under God, indivisible,
with Liberty and Justice for
ALL.

In God We Trust.

Unless we return to being a Nation whose God is the Lord, the fundamental transformation of America into enslaving tyranny will be completed.

We must seek God and His Mercy, healing the division and hatred, or Free America will be thrown into the Trash Heap of History, and the New Darker Dark Ages will descend upon Current and Future American Generations.

Now, we are in The Gathering Darkness, as the forces of the Rebellion wage war against God and the Liberty and Rights He has blessed us with as the Greatest Nation ever formed upon the earth.

Greatest because of our own prowess and strength?
No, Greatest because,

WE ARE ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

The best America can do,

is to return as a Nation as Individuals United – not cowering, fearful ants in an enslaved and shackled mythical “Collective” – to the Creator of the Universe, and surrender our Nation to the Perfect Will and Purpose of Almighty God in His All-Encompassing Love!

May we truly know,
it is
