Bill of Rights Assaulted

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

THOSE TEN AMENDMENTS ARE INTENDED TO
PROTECT US
FROM GOVERNMENTAL TYRANNY

POST-PUBLICATION NOTE: Once again, right after this Post was published, I received a video from 2010, that I had not yet seen.  It is a terrific message to Mr. Obama from “We The People.”  At the end, there is another one on the Second Verse of the Star-Bangled Banner, that is very important, also!  (The title says the “Marine Stuns A TEA Party With the Fourth Verse of the Star-Bangled Banner.”)

As Americans learn of outrageous, pervasive unconstitutional intrusions of our privacy by an unleashed Federal Government, State and Local Governments are also increasingly violating our Rights.

While working on Posts about the U.S. Supreme Court and what we must do to restore the Constitution and Our Liberty, under God, I received news reports on the abuses Americans are suffering in blatant, unconscionable and outrageous violations of the Bill of Rights along with those committed daily in Federal Government surveillance of Everyone! 

I’m including just a few here to expose the problem.  There are many more accounts available on the internet.  I believe they speak for themselves, so am keeping my commentary to a minimum.

When government criminalizes normal everyday activities, many of its employees and elected officials begin to treat everyone like criminals, they are the ones who are trampling the Constitution and its Bill of Rights – the First Ten Amendments intended to draw the line in the sand that government cannot cross in the United States of America!

“There’s no way to rule innocent men.  The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”  Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged, 1957.  http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca/quotes_by/ayn+rand

Hinkle: Commit any felonies lately?

Elizabeth Daly went to jail over a case of bottled water.

According to the Charlottesville Daily Progress, shortly after 10 p.m. April 11, the University of Virginia student bought ice cream, cookie dough and a carton of LaCroix sparkling water from the Harris Teeter grocery store at the popular Barracks Road Shopping Center. In the parking lot, a half-dozen men and a woman approached her car, flashing some kind of badges. One jumped on the hood. Another drew a gun. Others started trying to break the windows.

Daly understandably panicked. With her roommate in the passenger seat yelling “Go, go, go!” Daly drove off, hoping to reach the nearest police station. The women dialed 911. Then a vehicle with lights and sirens pulled them over, and the situation clarified: The people who had swarmed Daly’s vehicle were plainclothes agents of the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The agents had thought the sparkling water was a 12-pack of beer.

Did the ABC’s enforcers apologize? Not in the slightest. They charged Daly with three felonies: two for assaulting an officer (her vehicle had grazed two agents; neither was hurt) and one for eluding the police. Last week, the commonwealth’s attorney dropped the charges….

The Cato Institute has published a policy paper and a map on the alarming increase in police raids on innocent Americans.  The author shows that the long-recognized right, “A man’s home is his castle,” is under assault by governments across the country!

Police Commandeer Homes, Get Sued

BY MEGAN GALLEGOS

LAS VEGAS (CN) - Henderson police arrested a family for refusing to let officers use their homes as lookouts for a domestic violence investigation of their neighbors, the family claims in court.
Anthony Mitchell and his parents Michael and Linda Mitchell sued the City of Henderson, its Police Chief Jutta Chambers, Officers Garret Poiner, Ronald Feola, Ramona Walls, Angela Walker, and Christopher Worley, and City of North Las Vegas and its Police Chief Joseph Chronister, in Federal Court.
Henderson, pop. 257,000, is a suburb of Las Vegas.
The Mitchell family’s claim includes Third Amendment violations, a rare claim in the United States. The Third Amendment prohibits quartering soldiers in citizens’ homes in times of peace without the consent of the owner.
“On the morning of July 10th, 2011, officers from the Henderson Police Department responded to a domestic violence call at a neighbor’s residence,” the Mitchells say in the complaint.
It continues: “At 10:45 a.m. defendant Officer Christopher Worley (HPD) contacted plaintiff Anthony Mitchell via his telephone. Worley told plaintiff that police needed to occupy his home in order to gain a ‘tactical advantage’ against the occupant of the neighboring house. Anthony Mitchell told the officer that he did not want to become involved and that he did not want police to enter his residence….

The article describes the entire, outrageously unconstitutional incident, which involved the forceful commandeering of two homes and abuse of the owners and one owner’s dog.  https://www.courthousenews.com/2013/07/03/59061.htm

Excerpt from an article in Free Republic:

Police Say Speeding Tickets Are All About Discretion

Tuesday, dash cam video surfaced of an Iowa State Trooper pursuing a speeding black Chevy SUV on Highway 20 between Cedar Falls and Fort Dodge, back in April. In an audio recording, you can hear DCI Special Agent Larry Hedlund call a state dispatcher for help in pulling over the SUV that he was going a “hard 90.”

State Patrol started a pursuit, but backed off when they learned the SUV was being driven by a fellow officer and Governor Terry Branstad was a passenger.

Five days later the DCI put Hedlund on administrative leave after he complained to his superiors that Branstad’s driver got a free pass.

Wednesday, Branstad said that decision was not related to the speeding incident. But Hedlund’s attorney insists it was retaliation.
…Police in Marion said issuing speeding tickets is not black and white, more of a gray zone. They said their department only pulls people over when drivers reach a certain speed over the limit. Then, writing a ticket is up to the officer….

Governments are taking private real estate property for purposes not intended by the Founding Fathers, with impunity under a corruption of the Fifth Amendment and the principle of Eminent Domain:

“…nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
The
Fifth Amendment.

The following article reports a fantastically corrupt expansion of Eminent Domain planned by the City of North Las Vegas, Nevada.

Eminent Domain With Vengeance, and Dumb, Man Claims in Court

By MEGAN GALLEGOS


LAS VEGAS (CN) - The City of North Las Vegas is endangering its financial status with a cockeyed plan to seize up to 5,000 homes through eminent domain, buy them with public money and flip them, a man claims in court.

Gregory D. Smith sued North Las Vegas, its City Council and City Attorney Jeffrey Barr, in Federal Court. They are the only defendants.

“The City of North Las Vegas has entered into and embarked upon a plan to use the power of eminent domain to condemn and seize privately-owned residential mortgage loans in the City,” the complaint states.

“The City intends to target for seizure mortgages 1) that are performing, i.e. current in their mortgage debt obligation of the homeowner; and 2) where homeowners owe more on their mortgages than the current fair market value of their home, i.e. ‘underwater’ mortgages; and 3) that are owned by private securitization trusts in secondary mortgage market lending portfolios rather than backed by the federal government through Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or the Federal Housing Authority….

Federal, state and local governments are abusing Americans
in ways that were unheard of just three decades ago.

We the Sovereign American People have become
Subjects under governmental tyranny.

Must we ALL personally experience these abuses before we realize

the fundamental transformation of America

violating our inalienable God-given Rights

has advanced beyond the local anomalous incident?

~

Will we awaken too late to stop the complete transition from

government of the people,

by the people and

for the people;

to

the people enslaved by government?
