I will not go peacefully

From T.L. Davis at Christian Mercenary:

For the most part, I think my last post was seized upon for its anti-tax position much more than it should have been. Who cares about my particular situation? Is it relevant? My answer is no. I was asking how long will you wait to resist? Or as one person suggested: What are you doing to resist?

Trust me, the very mention of resistance caused visits from the Department of Homeland Security (an inclusion which will already invite numerous visits), the USDA, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Defense, the Naval Information boys, the Department of State, office of the Secretary and numerous state organizations all interested in what I might say about resistance to their illegal activities.

If anyone doubts that what I write costs me something, think again. I put everything on the line every time I write a syllable. It is something I have understood since 2011 when an IRS agent arrived at my place of business to intimidate me with accusations and insinuations. Ultimately, it cost me several thousand dollars and more than a year of such intimidation.

These are the actions of an oppressive government. I relate such instances to put a personal face to the intimidation and oppression. I do not speak of generalities, of hypotheticals. These things have happened to me and continue to happen to me because I speak the truth and I tell the tale of the abuses of the government. My wife hates me for it, but has now, since she has also been implicated (by association), come to recognize that NO government has the right to treat their citizens as such and still claim the authority of the PEOPLE.

We are not the people to them, we are subjects, serfs, obligated laborers, nothing more. A republic is based on the concept that the people themselves are represented by elected officials. That is not what we have today. What we have, as a government, is an oligarchy (where a group of powerful individuals decide what will happen to the rest). Can anyone argue against that analysis?

WE ARE NOT a republic. We are not a democracy. We are not a functional society. Those who have spent us into debt are demanding from us future funds at the threat of imprisonment. Those who are incapable of functioning under the constraints of a budget are demanding that we give them more and more funds with which they might be increasingly less responsible and increasingly more threatening to our freedom. It is a crude form of extortion (look up the definition of extortion and tell me that it does not apply).

Without going to extremes, tell me that any average understanding of extortion does not apply to a government as well as a criminal organization. What is the functional difference? That we vote? That who votes? Does anyone in power seem to care where the votes come from? Legal or illegal? Paid for or out of intellectual contemplation? They do not. It is their sole claim to legitimate authority and they will not investigate the validity of that vote, no matter what. They do not want to know.

A free people are not fooled by this ruse. A free people respect and require legitimate votes and voters to determine the direction of the nation and to select the leaders of the same. That is what a legitimate republic looks like, not the contrived nonsense we endure today.

The point is very simply if they do not offer us a republic as represented by the Constitution and the amendments thereof, they cannot legally, morally or ethically offer us a republic respecting only the 16th Amendment, disregarding the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th and 10th Amendments. It either works as a document and all amendments are respected or none are respected. The government has been very good at picking and choosing which amendments and rights of the people are respected and which are not, but it is not a smorgasbord. One must choose all or nothing, or it ceases to be legitimate, it ceases to embrace the rule of law and becomes a nation of exceptions, of waivers and of concessions to those with the most money, or the correct political persuasion. Is that not what we endure? Is that not what our forefathers fought to liberate us from?

We endure the illegal and impossible government of today, but we do not acquiesce, we do not accept, we do not endorse, we merely endure what we cannot, without forfeiture of life, liberty or property, change. Our opposition should not be held subject to vote, that is what the first 10 amendments were adopted to deny. Those are rights that we, as citizens of the United States, have with or without consent of the government, with or without consent of other citizens. These are individual rights endowed by God and supposedly ensured, guaranteed by the government ordained by the people for this purpose and this purpose alone. They have failed that and they have failed the people.

This is what I protest. This is what I will sacrifice all that I own or will own to secure. This is my line and they have crossed it long, long ago. So, whatever happens to me is just another fact, a statistic on the legal ledgers of a corrupt and criminal government. I do not ask for rescue, or help, or legal defense. It is what it is, but I will not go peacefully into that dark night.

Seriously, you have to see this

I need to make a new category called “You can’t make this shit up”. C’mon, this is as absurd as Putin leading the investigation into the assassination of the opposition party leader.
Lois Lerner’s Hard Drive Was Searched By Legally Blind IRS Employee

“The first IT specialist to inspect the computer hard drive of former IRS exemptions director Lois Lerner was legally blind, according to an affidavit filed last year by Stephen Manning, deputy chief information officer for strategy and modernization at the IRS.”

http://dailycaller.com/2015/03/02/lois-lerners-hard-drive-was-searched-by-legally-blind-irs-employee/

More dirt from those in high places

From The daily caller: http://dailycaller.com/2014/09/14/bombshell-emails-white-house-coordinated-with-department-of-labor-to-hide-illegal-obama-fundraiser-hilda-solis-schedule/

“The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama.”

So there it is, more corruption. The stink is so bad that can’t hide it any more. They don’t even fear being caught at it anymore because there are no consequences.

There is no law anymore, no moral mandate that dictates right from wrong. All that exists now are punitive laws that will be used against those that oppose the machine.Illegitimate crooks, liars and thieves now rule from the highest places.

It is what I have been saying all along.

There is no law now unless you are afraid, no moral authority any longer backs their dictates. They have become so corrupt that they are illegitimate and their mandate to rule is gone. Fear is the only thing now that stands between what needs to be done and what is done.

Consequences are the only thing to fear and if you act in righteousness then consequences be damned;I will take my medicine when the time comes.Their despicable acts have turned my fear into self righteous indignation. They have unwittingly turned the tables on us. They have taken the moral authority that is supposed to rest with the law and handed it to us. They are the crooks and deceivers and their stench rises to high heaven.

Tempis Fugit

A system wide failure is on the way. It has gotten so bad that they can no longer hide it. Cracks are starting to appear and even the mindless minions are beginning to wake up, whether they want to or not. They are going to have to silence those that speak out, like Breitbart news which is now being audited by the IRS.
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/09/09/Cruz-Questions-IRS-About-Decision-To-Audit-Breitbart-News

I think that the time is coming soon; the boiling point is about to be reached.Just remember that when law becomes nothing more than a punitive tool for a self perpetuating bureaucracy; try not to get caught…. Drone strike please….

Obamacare fail : Less than 4 million newly insured

http://dailysignal.com/2014/06/24/obamacare-exchanges-disappointing/

The administration expected 26 million newly insured and only ended up with less than 4 million. It would seem that the dear leaders faithful minions have balked at being ordered to buy a product by the government. I guessed they missed the fact that deep down inside a lot of us are still Americans. We still believe that we run the government and not the other way around.  There is still residing in us the spirit that when push comes to shove, we will bite our nose off to spite our face. Oh yeah, then we will spit it at you.     You know I broke my hand and finger a while back. I did it really good and knocked one of my fingers right off the knuckle. I got it out of bondage last Monday and by Wednesday night I am pretty sure that I broke it again. Do I have insurance? Hell no. I man up and pay the bill. So far I am about $400.00 in with getting it set, Xrays and check ups.    I don’t care about the money, right now it is a matter of principle. I am already spending money to fight these bastards so why not a few bucks more?   So I might risk my life if I get a major illness; Big deal, there is a good chance that I might be risking my life here shortly anyway. I really am a dumb ass at times. I am the only guy I know that runs TO the sound of gunfire.

Congress to ban targeting by IRS

This goes to show how far that we have fallen from the rule of law.  “negotiators agreed to strict rules to prevent the Internal Revenue Service from targeting groups for ideological scrutiny, and specifically banning the agency from targeting citizens “for exercising any right guaranteed under the First Amendment.”   It is ridiculous that they even need to discuss this. They are proposing a law that would prevent the IRS from violating our first amendment rights. Isn’t that already prohibited? Where is the DOJ stepping up to file a federal suit?   We now have out of control bureaucracies controlling our government. Instead of dealing with one tyrant, we now deal with a thousand as each one issues another 1000 regulations. We have slipped into a Soviet style bureaucratic tyranny. Read the excerpt below and then please tell me that I am wrong… No really.. please

“the system is so thoroughly permeated with hypocrisy and lies: government by bureaucracy is called popular government; the working class is enslaved in the name of the working class; the complete degradation of the individual is presented as his ultimate liberation; depriving people of information is called making it available; the use of power to manipulate is called the public control of power, and the arbitrary abuse of power is called observing the legal code; the repression of culture is called its development; the expansion of imperial influence is presented as support for the oppressed; the lack of free expression becomes the highest form of freedom; farcical elections become the highest form of democracy; banning independent thought becomes the most scientific of world views; military occupation becomes fraternal assistance. Because the regime is captive to its own lies, it must falsify everything. It falsifies the past. It falsifies the present, and it falsifies the future. It falsifies statistics. It pretends not to possess an omnipotent and unprincipled police apparatus. It pretends to respect human rights. It pretends to persecute no one. It pretends to fear nothing. It pretends to pretend nothing.” Vaclav Havel

Edward Snowden statement

“One week ago I left Hong Kong after it became clear that my freedom and safety were under threat for revealing the truth. My continued liberty has been owed to the efforts of friends new and old, family, and others who I have never met and probably never will. I trusted them with my life and they returned that trust with a faith in me for which I will always be thankful.

On Thursday, President Obama declared before the world that he would not permit any diplomatic “wheeling and dealing” over my case. Yet now it is being reported that after promising not to do so, the President ordered his Vice President to pressure the leaders of nations from which I have requested protection to deny my asylum petitions.

This kind of deception from a world leader is not justice, and neither is the extralegal penalty of exile. These are the old, bad tools of political aggression. Their purpose is to frighten, not me, but those who would come after me.

For decades the United States of America have been one of the strongest defenders of the human right to seek asylum. Sadly, this right, laid out and voted for by the U.S. in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is now being rejected by the current government of my country. The Obama administration has now adopted the strategy of using citizenship as a weapon. Although I am convicted of nothing, it has unilaterally revoked my passport, leaving me a stateless person. Without any judicial order, the administration now seeks to stop me exercising a basic right. A right that belongs to everybody. The right to seek asylum.

In the end the Obama administration is not afraid of whistleblowers like me, Bradley Manning or Thomas Drake. We are stateless, imprisoned, or powerless. No, the Obama administration is afraid of you. It is afraid of an informed, angry public demanding the constitutional government it was promised — and it should be.

I am unbowed in my convictions and impressed at the efforts taken by so many.”

Nullification of federal laws by states growing

http://www.pressherald.com/news/Federal-nullification-efforts-mounting-in-states-.html?pagenum=1

It is about time for the states to realize that the federal government is supposed to be comprised of the states. The states send reps to the senate and congress and they don’t represent them.  If enough of the states get onto the nullification bandwagon the behemoth that the fed has become could be reigned in.  To track state legislation go to the tenth amendment center http://tenthamendmentcenter.com/

You sir are no JFK..Barack Obama bombs in Berlin: a weak, underwhelming address from a floundering president

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/nilegardiner/100222637/barack-obama-bombs-in-berlin-a-weak-underwhelming-address-from-a-floundering-president/

Obama finally being seen for what he is,  “It was a combination of staggering naiveté, the appeasement of America’s enemies and strategic adversaries, and the championing of more big government solutions.”     although stupidity may be a more accurate description than naivet’e.  As North Korea, India, Pakistan  and Iran further their nuclear programs, the boy genius wants to cut our nuclear arsenal by 1/3 and then eventually eliminate them. This will be the utopian society where we will all join hands around the globe and sing we are the world..     It is amazing that a guy who is touted as the smartest guy in the room  adheres to a sophomoric ideology that most have discarded by the 8th grade.  It would be entirely laughable were it not for his position of power and his ties to radical revolutionaries.

Crossing point

“I imagine everyone’s experience is different, but for me, there was no single moment. It was seeing a continuing litany of lies from senior officials to Congress – and therefore the American people – and the realization that that Congress, specifically the Gang of Eight, wholly supported the lies that compelled me to act. Seeing someone in the position of James Clapper – the Director of National Intelligence – baldly lying to the public without repercussion is the evidence of a subverted democracy. The consent of the governed is not consent if it is not informed,” Edward Snowden

What does it take to step over to the other side? As Edward Snowden said “It was no single event” that spurred him to do what he did. It was a collection of ever growing lies and deceit from our government that finally built until he reached his breaking point.  The important question is when will that point be reached for normal law abiding citizens? When will they realize the scale of the tyranny building and cross over themselves?     It is becoming ever more obvious that this administration is flagrantly flouting the rule of law and doing as it wishes. It certainly is not one single event but many; From Eric Holder and his contempt of congress to the IRS scandal. Every level of the government is involved in this lawlessness and corruption.      With the IRS scandal it was not just the IRS, some of the victims involved were not only audited , but also investigated by the FBI the ATF and even OSHA. With Bengahzi , the lies came from state and it is almost certain the white house was aware from the beginning but perpetuated them nonetheless.    Fast and furious involved not only the ATF, but also the FBI and state. Hillary used the guns coming in from fast and furious to try to further her gun control agenda when she used erroneous statistics about the guns coming from the US while standing next to a pile of assault rifles.  When Obama said that they were “working on gun control under the radar” it is almost certain that high level administration officials were aware that the ATF was flooding Mexico with guns and the carnage from those very same guns was going to be used to further their agenda.     Now we are  approaching the crossing point for “Normal” citizens; The point where they begin to rebel against the system. This is the point where righteousness begins to out weigh the threat of consequences and outrage overcomes fear. The enormity of these latest scandals are starting to sink into the public consciousness and resonate; This government is losing it’s legitimacy.     In Syria, when the mass protests first started, Assad’s troops began firing into the crowds to disperse them. When the shooting started the protests accelerated rather than diminished. Outrage overcame fear as the last shreds of Assad’s legitimacy evaporated .When he ordered firing upon peaceful protesters he could no longer be perceived as a legal, legitimate ruler.         People will submit to a lot of things , even if they don’t agree with them, if they feel they are legitimate. Take TSA for an example;  No one wants to go through a humiliating pat down, but as a whole, they submit to it.  They undergo the experience in the belief that TSA is, at least trying , to work for the greater good and are acting in good faith.     As soon as that belief in good faith is gone, such as being singled out unfairly or treated rudely, people immediately begin to rebel and a scene quickly ensues.  The context of the pat down changes as soon the perception of the pat down does.    The IRS is another prime example. The much feared financial arm of the Fed is going to find itself in difficult straits because of their malfeasance. It is simply a fundamental change in the perception of the agency.     Instead of fearing what they might find out, the attitude is going to be “” You are a bunch of frauds, crooks and liars, how dare you audit me. You are only auditing me because I write in opposition to the government”      Instead of fearfully submitting to an audit that type of perception can leave a bunch of agents in an office with the wrong end of a five gallon gas can.     The perception of events is all important and it all comes back to the consent of the governed. Even in prisons, they have the consent of the prisoners.Without that consent a prison could never be run. If no one followed the rules it would be chaos and so costly that no state could have one.   The prisons have the consent to run because most convicts know that they have broken the law and done wrong deeds; Even in prisons they have a sense of fairness. When prisoners feel that they are being mistreated or treated unfairly, riots break out or guards are singled out for revenge. (Which is actually fairly rare)  Once the perception of legitimacy is removed the prison quickly becomes ungovernable.    As more comes out about these scandals, more and more of the governments legitimacy is going to be removed. As it sinks in that the IRS was being used for voter suppression, to cheat the very way that we give our consent, more and more people are going to lose faith in the system and withdraw their consent.   As more information is released about the NSA domestic spying program and the true scope of the lies are revealed, one more layer of the veneer of legality will be stripped away from the regime.    As it becomes apparent that all of the powers of the Fed are being used for lawlessness and corruption and political machinations then more and more people are going to reach the crossing point.  I have already reached mine. How about you?

Over 1/2 of Senate members skip briefing on NSA domestic spying

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/305765-senators-skip-classified-briefing-on-nsa-snooping-to-catch-flights-home

It is all about priorities. Only 47 out of 100 senate members attended a classified briefing on the NSA domestic spying. The rest hopped on planes early to enjoy the father’s day week end.     Do you feel represented? Do these spoiled elites stand for you or for me or for anything other than themselves ? It is apparent that they care nothing about their obligations to the constitution or their constituents .They have their position and power so why should they care about representing us when it is not an election year ?      If you don’t get it by now then you haven’t been paying attention; We have been had.  Everyone has been waiting for the revolution to start, when in fact it already over.The senate is no more interested in investigating the NSA than the FBI is in investigating the IRS. They are already aware of what is going on and are part of it.   We have been sold wholesale into bondage by both parties. This Government has become above the rule of law and our insignificant liberties will not stand in the way of it growing ever larger until it controls every aspect of our lives. The NSA spying is only the tip of the iceberg.    If you still think that you can vote your way out of this, I think you are sadly mistaken. Unless there are another 99 Rand Pauls waiting in the wings to be elected to the senate, the America that we knew is gone.      Now we are left with hard choices; Either submit or become the resistance.The time to choose will be coming in the near future.

57% think that NSA data will be used to harass political opponents

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/june_2013/57_fear_government_will_use_nsa_data_to_harass_political_opponents

57% is an astounding number considering how many idiots are still unaware of what is going on. It seems as if the corruptness of this regime is finally starting to penetrate the public consciousness. This cannot bode well for the emperor and his new clothes.

Just because your paranoid doesn’t mean the Govt. ISN’T out to get you…

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/main-core-a-list-of-millions-of-americans-that-will-be-subject-to-detention-during-martial-law_06112013

 

Main core is a data base first exposed in 2008. It is a list, as of 2008, of 8 million Americans who are considered a threat to national security.The data base contains detailed personal and financial information on these individuals.  I would imagine that the data base has grown considerably since 2008.  I would also guess that somewhere out there, there is a hellfire missile with my name on it.

When law has no moral authority

Natural and legal rights are two types of rights theoretically distinct according to philosophers and political scientists. Natural rights are rights not contingent upon the laws, customs, or beliefs of any particular culture or government, and therefore universal and inalienable. In contrast, legal rights are those bestowed onto a person by a given legal system.(Wiki)     Law itself is subjective.  Those upon whom it is applied will in the end decide whether or not it applies to them; It goes back to consent of the governed. When law loses it’s moral authority it is no longer a valid law . Without moral authority a law is nothing more than a rule enforced by punishment; And you can only frighten a man so much with the threat of force or imprisonment.   In 13th century  England, the King  lost his moral authority to impose law and that eventually led to the Magna Carta .  It seems that this is where we are headed now.  Trust in the government is at an incredibly low point. Trust in the system is almost gone.    The highest court in the land , the one that is to protect the constitution, is held in disregard, sellouts to the system.  Whether or not the SCOTUS has ruled one way or another on an issue is irrelevant as they have slowly been ruling our rights away for decades and are losing any semblance of trust.      It is up to us as a people to decide whether or not we will allow the Govt. to surveil our every move or not. It is up to us, when the system has become so corrupt that it no longer has moral authority, to impose our will upon it as the barons did upon the King of England with the Magna Carta. In the end it is we and we alone who will decide whether to live as free men or serve as serfs under the rule of the police state.

Eric Cantor vows serious investigation into NSA leak : Intel officials overheard saying Snowden should be “Disappeared”

http://thehill.com/video/house/304409-cantor-congress-will-launch-very-serious-investigation-into-snowden

A group of intelligence officials were overheard yesterday discussing how the National Security Agency worker who leaked sensitive documents to a reporter last week should be ‘disappeared.’

Foreign policy analyst and editor at large of The Atlantic, Steve Clemons, tweeted about the ‘disturbing’ conversation after listening in to four men who were sitting near him as he waited for a flight at Washington’s Dulles airport

This is the America we now live in. The powers that be have been exposed for what they are and they are not happy about it. Snowden now has to worry about that knock comes on his door; Nacht Und Nebel.  Night and fog.  Sound familar ?     “The Night and Fog Decree, issued by Hitler in 1941 and disseminated along with a directive from Keitel, was operated within the conquered territories in the West (Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands). The decree allowed those “endangering German security” to be seized and made to disappear without trace. Keitel’s directive stated that “efficient intimidation can only be achieved either by capital punishment or by measures by which the relatives of the criminal and the population do not know his fate.”    That is what we are, conquered territory. It is not Obama or the Democrats; It is the federal government.  It is out of control and now has a life of it’s own. Both parties are in on it and will do whatever they can to perpetuate it’s power because it’s power is their power.   What the federal government was supposed to be was representatives from each state and the president.  Collectively they would govern national affairs and protect the country.   What we now have are endless layers of bureaucracy that would make Kafka marvel. Bureaucracies  such as the EPA and the ATF that are able to make “rules” that carry the weight of law and are not able to be overturned by congress because congress empowered those agencies when they created them. This has even been upheld by the SCOTUS in their decision on the clean air act. (Traitorous  lot that they are)   Yes we are conquered territory. Maybe Nacht Und Nebel has not been enumerated yet but it is here in spirit .The federal government is actively targeting dissenters with the IRS, targeting reporters for prosecution, singling out news organizations that don’t agree with them and collecting information on us all.    Our freedom is gone; We are subjects of the federal government. The government has found out that someone let their secrets out and they are not happy about it. They will attempt to make the consequences as severe as possible.This is only the start.    Be careful what you say…Comrade.

Welcome to North Colorado; 8 counties to attempt secession from Colorado

http://dailycaller.com/2013/06/07/eight-colorado-counties-want-to-leave-the-state/

Welcome to the future of America.  The rifts in this  country are so incommensurable that division is the only possible future .The progressive leftists and statists are so  far off in their ideological and moral beliefs that there is no common ground to even have a talking point with them.     It is not possible to live with or around these people as they insist on forcing their ideals on others.They are not content to be Atheist or gay or amoral; They will attempt to force those things on everyone around them.  From any seat of power they have,  no matter how menial they will attempt to further their agenda.    Their agenda has no morals, no judgement, no religion and no values. It also has no room for you having any of these things either, as that would leave you in judgement of them. The only way that they can achieve this is either through political correctness or a statist government; Thus their belief in the power of the state.     Yes , I see division as the only endgame for our country, be it sooner or later.  These are wounds in the fabric of our society that cannot be healed and every push they make for their agenda pushes us closer to the edge.

Resistance to tyranny is obeying God

Resistance is in the mind. You are who you say are, if you have the will to back it up.  You may say you are a citizen or a worker or a writer. You may also say that you are a dissident or a revolutionary.   It is up to you.  Bad things are coming. You must decide who you are.

Obama fails to salute marine

Are we surprised?  He has such blatant disregard for the military that he cannot salute a marine. A hand shake afterwards?  I can’t even finish this post without being arrested. I bite my tongue.
