"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.  We seek not your counsels or arms.  Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.  May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
--Samuel Adams, Philadelphia State House, August 1st, 1776

I am putting this first on this site because it is the most important thesis I have ever posted and we do not have much time left to put it into operation. Any individual and any elected official is welcome to copy this verbatim, replace "Arizona" with the name of your sovereign State, and present it to your elected and appointed officials. All State officials are encouraged to introduce and pass legislation supporting their State sovereignty for the purpose of binding down the federal government by the chains of the Constitution and thus put a stop to federal mischief and outlawry:

If you want to save our nation, the first nation in the history of the planet to elevate private individual rights above the arbitrary whim of kings and princes and neighborhood warlords, here is how we do it.  It is easy, peaceful, and lawful, but it will require backbone and perseverance – what our founding fathers called “manly firmness.”  Our State – any State – has the sovereign authority to do this and most, and probably all, other States will jump on board because the economic benefits will be enormous.

To be successful it is vital that you wrap your head around the following factual information and adopt it as your implacable conviction:



In 1913, at the behest of the international banking cartel who owned Great Britain at the time of our War for Independence, who wanted economic and political control of their colonies back, Secretary of State and international bankster cartel operative William Jennings Bryan lied through his teeth and declared the 17th Amendment ratified when Article V of the United States Constitution compact written by the sovereign States clearly and specifically prohibits ratification of any Amendment depriving any State of its suffrage in the Senate without its Consent – and more than ten States withheld their Consent.  This is MUTINY against the sovereign States that created the federal government and a clear violation of the compact of the sovereign States that created the federal government.

Therefore, the following is a matter of public record and plain English:


If any of the following strikes you as being in violation of federal law or judicial ruling, refer again to Part I:  The sovereign States own the federal government and the sovereign States have full power to review and vacate any decision, ruling, color of law, regulation, or other action not pursuant to the plain limited delegation of authority set down in the sovereign States’ Constitutional Compact that created the federal government in the first place.  It is time for our State, and every State, to assert their sovereign authority over their creation, and it may be done unilaterally.

By this first step, and by this lawful procedure, the sovereign States of the united States of America may regain sovereign control over their wholly-owned subsidiary created by a Constitution Compact between said sovereign States, and restore the federal government to its rightful status as a wholly-owned subsidiary and representative of the States.

More steps will be required:  The unratified 16th Amendment will of necessity be vacated for lack of lawful ratification, and this will revitalize Article I Section 2 Clause 3 and Section 9 Clause 4 of the Constitution Compact, restoring to the States their control over the purse of their creation, the federal government.

Supreme Court rulings that assume powers not delegated to either the federal government or the Supreme Court in particular will of necessity be vacated as null and void.  Senate ratification of treaties assuming federal powers not delegated will of necessity be vacated.  Federal laws of any and all kinds assuming powers not delegated to the federal government will of necessity be vacated, including the illegal Federal Reserve Act, declared passed without Constitutional authority and without a quorum.

Early in our nation’s history, the Times of London editorialized as follows:

'If that mischievous financial policy which had its origin in the North American Republic [i.e. honest Constitutionally-authorized no-debt money] should become indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without a debt [to the international bankers]. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.'

And our nation did become prosperous beyond precedent; for 126 years our nation was the most prosperous nation on Earth, and the average working man, woman, and child improved their living standard more than they had in the previous 25 centuries (from the turn of the century book “1900”.)  Then the international monied interests got their hooks into us again by subverting our government in 1913 and since.

I call on every elected or appointed official reading this to introduce and/or sponsor and/or support legislation to declare our lawful State sovereignty and restore our nation of liberty and prosperity.  Let’s make it so.

A federal government that does not derive every scintilla of its lawful and limited authority from the Constitution of the United States is by definition a rogue occupation government and criminal regime.  Its authority is null and void and no one is bound by any rule of law to obey it.  See the Tenth Amendment.

A State government that exercises any power prohibited to it by the Constitution of the United States as amended is by definition a rogue occupation government and criminal regime.  It's authority is null and void and no one is bound by any rule of law to obey its prohibited color of law.  See the Tenth Amendment.

These are badges of responsible citizenship.

(Note that thugs in black robes sitting behind high benches typically do not believe in the U.S. Constitution and will rule against it and in favor of tyranny most foul.  Be careful, but keep fighting for liberty under the rule of law.)


“People who object to weapons aren't abolishing violence, they're begging for rule by brute force, when the biggest, strongest animals among men were always automatically 'right.'  Guns ended that, and social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work.”
L. Neil Smith, “The Probability Broach”


A free citizenry does not ask its governments' permission to exercise a right.  It does not register its exercise of a right.  It does not waive any other right, such as the right to privacy, or the right to due process, or the right to be secure from being compelled to waive a right in order to exercise a right, in exchange for permission to exercise a right such as the right to keep and bear arms which government does not have the authority to issue or deny in the first place.  It does not permit government to claim the exercise of a right is probable cause, or prima facie evidence, or even a suspicion, of a crime having been committed.  It does not discuss, or negotiate, what rights it will or will not exercise with government or with any government functionary.  In short, a free citizenry, founded in principles of liberty, does not give up its right to determine what kind of government receives its Consent to Govern.  A free citizenry respects, honors, and protects the lawful rights of others, by force of arms if necessary, else liberty cannot be preserved for anyone.

1791:  Secretary of State Alexander Hamilton proposed creation of the "Bank of the United States", arguing that "The tendency of a national bank is to increase public and private credit.  The former gives power to the state for the protection of its rights and interests, and the latter facilitates and extends the operations of commerce amongst individuals."  --Alexander Hamilton, December, 1790 report to George Washington.  After considerable skeptical reflection, George Washington signed the legislation.

1811:  The twenty-year charter of the Bank of the United States expires.  Stephen Girard purchases all lock, stock, and property interest in the now-defunct Bank of the United States and opens his own private bank with himself being the sole proprietor, thus escaping the Pennsylvania laws prohibiting any association of persons from opening a bank.

1812-1815:  The "War of 1812," referred to by some historians as the "Second War for Independence," went hot the following year, as a result of British blockading the Atlantic Coast, impressment of American sailors from vessels captured at sea to serve in the Napoleonic Wars, and was generally an attempt by the owners of Great Britain to recover their colonies.  The attempt fizzled badly, and while it tied up a few loose ends left over from the War for Independence, the land areas all went back to their previous borders.  It was during this debacle that the first "Income Tax" was proposed by Congress, but the Treaty of Ghent was signed before it could be imposed.

Preface to the following:

"The Big Bankers in Europe -- the Rothschilds and their cohorts -- viewed the wonderful results borne by this unique experiment from an entirely different perspective; they looked upon it as a major threat to their future plans.  The establishment Times of London stated:  'If that mischievous financial policy which had its origin in the North American Republic [i.e. honest Constitutionally-authorized no-debt money] should become indurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost.  It will pay off its debts and be without a debt [to the international bankers].  It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world.  The brains and wealth of all countries will go to North America.  That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.'

"The Rothschilds and their friends sent in their financial termites to destroy America because it was becoming 'prosperous beyond precedent.' "The first documentable evidence of Rothschild involvement in the financial affairs of the United States came in the late 1820s and early 1830s when the family, through their agent Nicholas Biddie, fought to defeat Andrew Jackson's move to curtail the international bankers.  The Rothschilds lost the first round when in 1832, President Jackson vetoed the move to renew the charter of the 'Bank of the United States' (a central bank controlled by the international bankers). In 1836 the bank went out of business."  See Daily Paul.

1832:  You bet he did!:

"Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States.  I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country.  When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank.  You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families.  That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin!  Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin!  You are a den of vipers and thieves.  I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!"  --Andrew Jackson, as quoted in Andrew Jackson Wikiquotes.

It was around this time frame or shortly after that a letter from the Rothschild Banking Cartel addressed to its "Imperial Managers in the United States" counseled patience, for it predicted full economic control of "their colonies" would be regained by the year 1900, and political control by the year 2000.  There was a suggestion that "full payback in fealty would then commence."

1835:  A mentally-ill housepainter tried to kill Andrew Jackson at point-blank range, but both pistols misfired and Jackson beat him severely with his cane.  Of course this was not a false-flag event.  Also,

"The Illustrated University History, 1878, p. 504, tells us that the southern states swarmed with British agents.  These conspired with local politicians to work against the best interests of the United States.  Their carefully sown and nurtured propaganda developed into open rebellion and resulted in the secession of South Carolina on December 29, 1860.  Within weeks another six states joined the conspiracy against the Union, and broke away to form the Confederate States of America, with Jefferson Davis as President."  See Daily Paul.

1848-1855:  The California Gold Rush began with the finding of gold at Sutter's Mill, precipitating a major expansion of population to the West from the east, and from overseas.  This resulted in San Francisco increasing its population from 200 to about 36,000, and California becoming a State in 1850.

1861-1865:  The Civil War cost 600,000 lives.  The South believed Britain would come to its aid due to British dependence on "King Cotton" grown in the South, but the "British agents" were more likely employed by the Rothschilds, not the British government.  They weren't there to help the South; they were there to de-stabilize the United States.  Britain didn't show up for the party, and the South lost.  The first "Personal Income Tax" was imposed in 1861 to pay for the war (3% of all incomes over US$800), but was repealed and replaced with another in 1862.

1894Democrats passed the first peacetime personal income tax, 2% on incomes over $4,000, which meant that fewer than 10% of all households would pay any.

1895:  In Pollock v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Company, 157 U.S. 429 (1895) the Supreme Court ruled the personal income tax was unconstitutional.  The ruling also defined "direct tax" as a tax that could not be shoved off on anyone else.

US Constitution Article I Section 9 Clause 4 requires that "No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Cenusus or Enumeration herein before directed to be taken."
NOTE a significant fact:  Pollock was a private citizen, not a corporation or a business, and as such could not shove a tax off on anyone else.  Further:

"Direct taxes include those assessed upon property, person, business, income, etc., of those who pay them; while indirect taxes are levied upon commodities before they reach the consumer, and are paid by those upon whom they ultimately fall, not as taxes, but as part of the market price of the commodity.  Under the second head may be classed the duties upon imports, and the excise and stamp duties levied upon manufactures; Cooley, Taxation 10.
Bouvier's Law Dictionary (1914), pgs 867-868.

1913:  In the waning hours of the eve of the Christmas Break, December 23rd, 1913, after most of the opposition had gone home, and without a quorum, the U.S. Senate voted to pass the so-called "Federal Reserve Act."  The vote was null and void for want of a quorum, and the Act is unConstitutional anyway, for no power is delegated to the United States government to divest itself of its Constitutional authority (in pertinent part) "To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, ..."

In the interest of full disclosure, the very Progressive (read far-left Socialist/Marxist) Political Research Associates assert the above claim of null and void is "the silliest of the Federal Reserve conspiracy theories" because yeah, they didn't have a quorum, but those who had left registered their approval on the Record (Before?  After?) and even if they had been there, they would have voted to pass it.

Yeah, but they didn't vote to pass it. They weren't there; the Senate didn't have a quorum; the vote was illegal and the Act is null and void.  This is typical Marxist political playbook:  They broke the rules, but it advances the Marxist agenda to say "Move along; move along; there's nothing to see here."  The Marxist playbook must be challenged every time it is invoked.  It must never be allowed to stand.

Also in 1913, the Sixteenth (Income Tax) Amendment and the Seventeenth (Senators by popular vote) Amendments were declared ratified when they weren't.

The Sixteenth Amendment purportedly permitted government to impose a Capitation, or direct Tax, upon the citizens in direct violation of Article I Section 9 Clause 4:

  • According to all the expressed intent of the legislators of the time, the Sixteenth Amendment was never intended to impose a direct Tax on private citizens in violation of Article I Section 9 Clause 4 (See above).  It was intended exclusively to tax corporations as an excise tax on the profit the corporation derived from the employment of labor.  This meant it could have been Constitutional in the first place if it had been written as an excise tax instead of an income tax, since the corporation could shove it off on the employee as a condition of employment.  As will be seen, it was never the purpose to impose a tax on corporations; nor was it the purpose to support government.

  • No private citizen was taxed on his wages for 25 years, and when the first citizens were taxed, it was because they were government employees and therefore enjoyed the "privilege" of immunity for the decisions and enforcements they imposed on other citizens in the name of government.

  • The Supreme Court has ruled that the Sixteenth Amendment created "no new tax" because government already had the authority to impose an excise tax (true, so long as the tax was imposed on the exercise of privilege by a corporation or business), and because the Court claimed all the Sixteenth Amendment did was remove the requirement of apportionment from direct Taxation.  (Do I have to point out the award for mealy-mouthing in this ruling?  If a direct Tax was prohibited for 126 years unless apportioned, and now it can be imposed without regard to apportionment, then it's a new tax!)

  • Guess what:  The Sixteenth Amendment is null and void anyway; it was not ratified by three-fourths of the States as required by Article V:  Several States re-wrote it first and then ratified something not proposed, which no other States ratified.  Kentucky even voted it down and then listed the legislation as "carried" in its legislative record.  See The Law That Never Was, a two volume reference book and/or CD's available from Bill Benson's site or from the reference section of your public library -- if it hasn't been confiscated.  It contained certified copies of the legislative records of all the States the Secretary of State claimed ratified the amendment.

  • The purpose of the Sixteenth Amendment is not to support the federal government.  It was declared ratified when it had not been ratified because the banking cartel agents knew the gold and silver coin would be removed from our Constitutional monetary system in a few years, and it would be necessary at that time to pull a percentage of the worthless fiat paper money out of circulation every time it changed hands in order to mask the inflation unlimited printing of money would cause.  The government borrows money from the FED and the FED causes it to be created out of nothing and loaned to the U.S. government with our property and the government's taxing power used as collateral.

  • The bankers have just about reached their endgame:  If the Marxist Mafia infesting the White House and most of the U.S. Senate and almost half of the U.S. House can keep on borrowing, the United States of America will go bankrupt and the House of Cards will collapse.  That is the objective of all the entitlement spending and ObamaCare and anything else they can throw into the mix to put our businesses out of business and make our very survival depend upon the beneficience of a bunch of Marxist apparatchiks.
The Seventeeth Amendment purportedly removed the choosing of U.S. Senators from the States as a separate entity from the people, and authorized their election by popular vote, the same as for Members of the House of Representatives:

  • The main original purpose of having Congressmen elected by the people and Senators chosen by the State legislatures, according to the founding father's writings in the Federalist Papers, was to insulate Senators from the influences of factionalism, to secure them from the temptations of campaign fund donations, and to allow them the time and quiet contemplation necessary to determine whether a bill before them was in the best interests of the nation and their State.

  • A secondary purpose in having the State legislatures choose U.S. Senators was to give the States standing in federal courts against the federal government, and to give the State legislatures the authority to recall their U.S. Senator for conduct not in the best interests of the State.

  • These purposes were and are so important that Article V of the U.S. Constitution prohibits any amendment from depriving any State of its suffrage in the Senate without its Consent:

    "... Provided ... that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate."  --Article V.
  • When the Seventeenth Amendment was declared ratified by lying Progressive Democrat William Jennings Bryan, Secretary of State, ten States had not given Consent to being deprived of their Suffrage in the Senate:  Utah and Delaware withheld their Consent to being deprived of their Suffrage in the Senate by voting to reject the proposed Seventeenth Amendment, and eight other States withheld their Consent by taking no action at all on the proposed Seventeenth Amendment.

  • Do I have to point out that since the Seventeenth Amendment was declared ratified when it had not been ratified, that not one single federal law has been passed?  That not one single Cabinet Level appointment has been ratified by a Constitutional Senate?  That not one Treaty has been ratified by a Constitutional Senate?  That not one Supreme Court Justice has been ratified by a Constitutional Senate?  That not one President has been lawfully sworn in by a Constitutionally ratified Supreme Court Justice?  That not one Declaration of War has been lawfully passed by Congress?

  • Can you say "Rogue Occupation Government"?  Given everything else this federal government has been doing in the last one hundred years it is not authorized by the U.S. Constitution to do, can you add "and criminal regime" to that appellation?

  • Article I Section 10 Clause 1:  "No State shall ... make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; ..."
    Explanation: "Tender in payment of debts" is a legal term.  If you perform a contract and someone tries to pay you in kumquats, you are not required to accept payment in kumquats.  You may sue your debtor for payment in legal Tender, and the State Courts are required to rule that you must be paid in legal Tender.  Worthless paper fiat I.O.U.'s, called Federal Reserve Notes, are not legal tender either; the Constitution requires gold and silver Coin to be legal Tender.  By removing the lawful power of the States to choose their Senators, the States were deprived of their enforceable legal standing in federal Courts.  As a result, the States could not file suit in federal Court requiring the federal government to Coin Money as required by the U.S. Constitution, and the federal government was free to pass illegal color of law with impunity making these worthless fiat I.O.U. notes legal Tender.

When I get a chance, I will finish this timeline -- If the Marxist Mafia currently infesting the White House and the U.S. Senate and much of the House of Representatives doesn't take their Second Bolshevik Revolution to the next level, the shooting level, before then.

With this posting I am proposing a simple, potentially very effective process whereby the illegal, unconstitutional activities of the federal government can be called to question and the government can be brought to heel ￿ hopefully peacefully.  If not peacefully, then at least it won￿t be the people starting the ruckus.

I have said from the beginning that any conflict with the federal government is a lost cause if the States do not participate on the side of the U.S. Constitution.  Yet the powers that be presume the States have little to say in any conflict with the federal government because the States no longer have any real, binding standing to challenge the federal government:  This because the 17th Amendment has removed the representation of the States in the U.S. Senate, and turned that representation over to the people.  This makes the U.S. Senate just another House of Representatives, and subject to all the evils of factionalism and mass media propaganda to which that body is subject.  It also means it is almost impossible to recall or impeach a sitting U.S. Senator, whereas before the State authorities could recall a Senator any time they wished.

Thus the States are mere catspaws of the federal government any time the feds want to throw their weight around and threaten to withhold funds.

Yet, under the principle of federalism, the powers of governance are shared between the States and the federal government, and this principle is established by the Constitution of the United States:  The people will be represented in Congress by representatives in the House of Representatives chosen by vote of the people (Article I Section 2).  The States, each as a separate and distinct entity from the people, and with separate and overlapping interests ￿ self-interest as governing bodies but with overarching interest in protecting the rights of its citizens ￿ are to be represented in the U.S. Senate (Article I Section 3).

This was illegally and improperly and most importantly, unconstitutionally changed in 1913:  The banking entities managed to get a charter through Congress, in the last closing hours of the session when most Senators and Representatives had gone home for the Christmas Break, to create a national banking system in the United States controlled by the European banking dynasties.  (These were the same banking dynasties whose control we fought off in the War for Independence, but that is a different thread.)  At the same time they created the private corporation calling itself the ￿Federal Reserve System,￿ they proposed the 16th and 17th Amendments:

The proposed 16th Amendment is the income tax amendment, proposed because they knew they were going to confiscate our gold and silver monetary system and sell us worthless debt to use for currency instead of wealth, and they needed to drag a percentage of that worthless fiat paper out of circulation every time it changed hands or the inflation it caused would be noticeable overnight and the people would rebel.  The 16th was not ratified because a number of States re-wrote it first and ￿ratified￿ something that had not been proposed.  See ￿The Law That Never Was￿ by Red Beckman and Bill Benson, available in the reference section of your county library.  It contains certified copies of the legislative records of the States purportedly ratifying.

The proposed 17th Amendment is the amendment that takes the choosing of U.S. Senators away from the States and gives it to the people, making the U.S. Senate another House of Representatives.  This was proposed because Article I Section 10 Clause 1 provides that ￿No State shall ￿ make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; ￿￿ and they didn￿t want the States claiming the worthless fiat currency was illegal.  They also promised the States they would receive largesse from the federal Treasury (also unconstitutional) if they would keep quiet about it.  The 17th Amendment was also not ratified because Article V specifically prohibits any such amendment unless every State agrees:  In stating the manner in which amendments shall be valid, Article V states:  ￿￿ Provided ￿ that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived its equal Suffrage in the Senate.￿  Utah and Delaware withheld their Consent by voting to reject the proposed 17th Amendment, and eight other States withheld their Consent by taking no action at all on the 17th Amendment.

Neither of these amendments were ratified, and the United States government has been enforcing a lie for one hundred years.  It is time for this tyranny to stop.

My proposal to peacefully and legally Call The Question is based on the proposed and unratified 17th Amendment.  If the 17th Amendment was not ratified, and it clearly was not, then it does not exist.  It is null and void from the moment of its inception and not merely from the moment of its discovery as deficient.  The States still have the Constitutional authority to choose their U.S. Senators (Article I Section 3).

I do not propose State governments declare the 17th Amendment unratified, and I oppose any such declaration:  The 17th Amendment is unratified as a matter of fact and law.  ￿Declaring￿ it so invites legal challenge to the declaration.  Rather, I propose States simply recognize by its own legislation that the 17th Amendment was never ratified as required by Article V of the United States Constitution and immediately choose new U.S. Senators in a manner authorized by State legislation and send them to Washington.  Their existing (non-)Senators can be recalled to a hearing where they are stripped of their certification without prejudice (i.e., making it clear none of this is their fault), or ￿discharged￿ by whatever means the State chooses.  They can even campaign to be chosen by the State as Senators replacing themselves, if they wish.

The point is, none of this requires permission from the federal government.  All of this is existing State authority under the United States Constitution and no one, much less the feds, has any right to challenge it.

Once States￿ rights are thus restored, the States can take whatever steps are necessary to restore a constitutional federal government ￿ including rescinding 100 years of unratified amendments, unConstitutional federal law, and judicial rulings founded on unConstitutional federal law.  Oh, what opportunities to challenge worthless fiat currency and other tyrannies this procedure offers!

The following article is another peaceful but very effective Resistance Operation against this rogue occupation government, with credit to John Wesley, Rawles, of  Updated with citations at Survivalblog/Nunc Pro Tunc.

Nunc Pro Tunc: The Coming Day of Burn Barrels and Blessings

This is a standing invitation to my fellow Americans:  If congress ever enacts a law mandating the registration and/or a production ban of detachable magazine semiautomatic rifles then you are hereby invited to the town square of your local community.  There, burn barrels will be set up and we will publicly burn Form 4473s, FFL Bound Books, state and local registration records, and the sales receipts for every firearm in the United States.  On that same day, FFL holders and public officials holding electronic firearms records will simultaneously erase those records, permanently and irretrievably.  (Using special file erasure software such as Blancco, X-Ways, and Stellar Wipe, or though the physical destruction of disk drives.)

Spontaneous Gatherings, Spontaneous Combustion

This burn barrel day--likely to be held the day after the President signs any new draconian legislation--will include speeches, public prayers, and the blessing of those who have gathered by ministers, rabbis, and priests.

The core of the activities on that day will be stalwart public defiance of any new unconstitutional law(s), the open and notorious destruction of records that might be used to enslave us, and vocal public affirmations of solidarity of free men and women, in the face of tyranny.  This will be a defining moment for America--a line drawn in the sand.  We will forthrightly declare that we will not obey any unconstitutional law and that we will treat it dismissively, as if it had never been enacted -- nunc pro tunc.  We will pledge ourselves to the defense of liberty, both individually and collectively.  We will vow that if ever called to jury duty, we will nullify any unconstitutional laws, vacating the charges against the accused, in accordance with our long-standing right as jurors.  (See:

The Law is On Our Side

We will publicly re-affirm some long standing precepts of American jurisprudence, to wit:

"The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it's enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it.  An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed.  Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.

"Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it...

"A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one.  An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law.  Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, it is superseded thereby.

"No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it." - 16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d, Sec 256 Never Again!

Recognizing the many sad lessons of civilian disarmament and subsequent genocides in the 20th Century, we will make bold and forthright statement:  Never Again!  We will not submit to the unlawful decrees of tyrants.  We will not meekly go their jails and internment camps.  We will fight for our liberty, to our dying breath.

Come Armed, Come Masked

I recommend that all adults who publicly assemble at these burn barrel events do so armed, as is our right.  And those who come armed should also wear masks, to protect themselves from malicious prosecution.  I plan to wear a Guy Fawkes mask, but you can wear a bandana, face muffler, or the face mask of your choice.  Joining you, also wearing masks, will be many mayors, sheriffs and their deputies, chiefs of police and their officers, town council members, clergy, and people of all walks of life.  We vastly outnumber the tyrants.  The tyrants deserve nothing but our scorn and derision.  Their fate is already sealed.

Plausible Denial

After this fateful day has come and gone, FFL holders and public officials will be able to recount:  "I had no choice.  My records were taken by men with guns who were wearing masks!"  (So they'll have no excuse if they don't cooperate with this nationwide display of civil disobedience.)

The United States Constitution is not dead.

The United States Constitution is in full force and effect.

It exists:  It cannot be lawfully circumvented; it cannot be abrogated; it cannot be waived; it cannot be dissolved; it exists and it is supreme Law of the Land.

The United States Constitution conveys to the government of the United States the only lawful authority it has.

Legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President but not founded upon subject matter jurisdiction specifically conveyed by the United States Constitution is null and void from the moment of its inception, cannot be lawfully enforced, and is but mere color of law without lawful force or effect.

To the extent the federal government operates outside the subject matter jurisdiction conveyed by the United States Constitution, the federal government has forfeited its lawful right to govern and has become an Occupation Government without lawful authority.

To the extent any federal officer operates outside the lawful constraints and limitations of the United States Constitution, that officer and any officer who does his bidding has forfeited his lawful authority and is operating as a criminal marauder under color of law regardless of any legislation purportedly passed by Congress and signed into color of law by any President or ineligible usurper of the Office of President.

It is the responsibility of every federal officer to read, study, and understand the United States Constitution according to original intent and conduct his official activities accordingly, and that does not mean taking his supervisor's word for it.  He fails to do so at his legal peril:  "Es war meine Pflicht!"  ("It was my duty!") didn't cut it at Neuremberg and it won't cut it here.

(Note to freedom fighters:  While there are some federal officers with at least a modicum of integrity, federal thugs -- and especially Marxist federal thugs -- won't see it that way.  Be very, very careful.)

Don't ever, ever, allow anyone to convince you the Constitution of the United States or the Bill of Rights is no more.  That is exactly what Obama and his creeps in the World Communist Union want you to believe.  It is impossible, flatly impossible, for the federal government to lawfully destroy the principles established by either founding document of our nation, or the Declaration of Independence that justified them.  To the extent that it tries to do so, it deprives itself of all lawful authority to govern and becomes an Occupation Government no one is bound to obey or even tolerate.  We are, indeed, rapidly being overtaken by an Occupation Government, but it is not happening because the people have volunteered into some bogus jurisdiction or by any other means having any legal substance whatever, and to the extent it enforces its fiats on the American people, it is doing so illegally at the point of a gun.  The good news is the Occupation Government doesn't have the gun it thinks it has, because the United States Military will not back it up.  The bottom line here is that we, the people, are defending the founding documents of our free nation founded upon principles of liberty, and that is what justifies the knock-down drag-out fight we face if we cannot peacefully restore lawful government.  Don't allow anyone to throw away that motivation and justification by claiming the Bill of Rights is no more or that the Constitution is dissolved and is dissolved perfectly, as the Marxists inside the Beltway have been saying behind closed doors for years.  There is a fight coming, and we must not give up our prize, the restoration of Constitutional government, before it even begins.

I am now going to point out a very harsh reality.  I don't like it; I don't like to say it; I don't even like to think about it.  But fundamentally, when push comes to shove, it is the only defense that works against entrenched totalitarianism:

Some time ago I watched a movie set in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943, right at the beginning of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.  There were two very compelling scenes in that movie, one in which totalitarianism wins and one in which it loses.  Note that in this description, every person is Jewish except those specifically identified as Nazi soldiers.

The first scene showed a children's costume ballet recital with parents sitting around the edge of the room.  Everything is proceeding nicely when some officious little Nazi maggot stomps in and announces that this is an unauthorized assembly and everyone is to go home immediately.  Everyone shrugs; the conductor makes an obscene gesture to the departing backside of the Nazi, and people start preparing to go home.  Now, I understand that this ballet scene is, besides an actual ballet school for little girls, a cover for the budding Resistance, so there is an argument in this case against doing immediate battle.  But absent that kind of side issue, there is only one way this kind of government thuggery is going to stop:  I'll put it less graphically than I could:  The little Nazi S.O.B. must be later found in a gutter with a bullet between the eyes.  That should be the signature of the Resistance whenever it can be arranged.  If not, it might be better if he just disappears, never to be seen again.

The second scene was an excellent example of what it takes to stop this kind of government thuggery, and it has to be done every single time it can be pulled off successfully without endangering your own people:  A Nazi officer, with a half a bottle of Schnapps in him and a couple of armed soldiers hanging around offering immoral support, accosts an old man in the street, a musician, and orders him to play music on his violin.  The old man complies, and the Nazi circles him with a rifle he has taken from one of his soldiers, taunting him.  Finally he raps the old man in the teeth with the butt of his rifle and turns his attention to the old man's younger companion, cowering nearby.  At that moment the movie's main character, who observed these goings on as he went around the corner, reappears with a Walther P38 pistol in his hand and drops all three of the Nazis with three or four well-placed shots.  He and his friend quickly gather up the Nazi weaponry and depart, leaving the old man's companion standing there looking confused.  That is how you stop totalitarian thuggery:  When it has become endemic and the authorities aren't addressing it, or are obviously condoning it, that is the only way it stops, and only if it is made clear it is likely to happen every time some Nazi or Commie maggot wags his cool.

The context of the above two scenarios is clearly that of an extraordinarily brutal occupation government, though there is little difference between it and a community takeover by criminal thugs -- such as the drug cartels now moving north from the Mexican border into Arizona.  They have to be stopped before they get entrenched and develop a permanent infrastructure, or it will be next to impossible to root them out.  An example of the kind of situation you have once they have developed a permanent infrastructure is illustrated by what happened in a village in Communist China recently. This is another way totalitarianism works:

Chinese villagers had finally had it up to here with their corrupt communist officials confiscating their land and selling it to developers to build apartment complexes and shopping malls on, so they rioted.  The Commie hierarchy was just horrified at these terrible injustices imposed upon the villagers, so they fired two of the communist officials engaging in the confiscations (read: reassigned them to some other prefect, probably with a bonus and moving allowance).  Then they promised the villagers they would listen to their complaints -- but warned them there would be harsh measures taken if lawlessness continued.  After everyone calmed down and went home, they rounded up the ringleaders, interrogated them half to death for hours in rotating shifts, and then finished the job by torturing them until they died of a heart attack or some other convenient malady likely to occur when the bones in your hands or feet are crushed, your kneecaps are broken, and your fingernails are all yanked out.

It is an unfortunate reality that if you want the liberty of being secure from this kind of thuggery there is only one way to achieve it:  This must not be allowed to happen more than once.  The perpetrators must be brought to justice with extreme prejudice.  And the Resistance must be prepared to deal with the retribution and do it again.  A policy of collective retribution must be met with a policy of collective retribution -- but only among the perpetrators and their supervisory supporters:  Innocent family members are off limits.

"The price of freedom is the willingness to do sudden battle
anywhere, any time, and with utter recklessness."

--Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988)

FUNDAMENTAL FACT #1:  The only difference between socialism and Marxism is that Socialists believe their Utopia can be obtained through legislative reform, while Marxists know it can only be achieved by violent revolution.  (I read recently of a Viet Namese refugee, recently naturalized as a U.S. Citizen, who gave a speech at a naturalization ceremony in which he said "The only difference between socialism and Marxism is an AK-47 pointed at your head.")

FUNDAMENTAL FACT #2:  Any educated Marxist (i.e., not one of the useful idiots such as currently Occupying Wall Street and other cities) will confirm that Socialism is nothing but a transition stage between liberty and Marxism.

FUNDAMENTAL FACT #3:  No communist country has ever survived without capitalist countries infusing them with cash, usually in exchange for products made by slave labor.

FUNDAMENTAL FACT #4:  Marxism can be a Utopia -- but only for the Commissars and Profiteers and the particularly Useful Idiots (informants, enforcers, concubines, and the rare exploitable inventive genius).  Everyone else exists in enslavement and abject misery for the exclusive purpose of catering to the appetites of the self-appointed elite.

We must not go there.  We have already allowed socialism a significant toehold, giving up significant liberties and responsibilities in the process.  We must not allow its current transition to Marxism to proceed.

"Marxism in America" by Lt. Gen. W.G. Boykin (Ret.):


Watch:  The Legacy of Gun Control  Use your back button to return.



                                                              From Patriotic Action Network:

We must remember two things:

1.  Our nation was founded under conditions of martial law; our inherited and unalienable rights are as operative and defendable under conditions of martial law as they are at any other time, and the first obligation of any military authority enforcing martial law is to protect those inherited and unalienable rights of the people.

2.  The Marxist thugs in the administration won't see it that way.

(Also, the soldiers depicted in this video are not "U.S. Army" -- they are National Guard.  That's one way the Powers That Be [PTB] get around The Posse Comitatus Act [Title 18 Section 1385].)

EDIT:  I'm referring to the soldiers wandering through town in this video, not the U.S. Army soldiers being assigned to NORTHCOM:  If U.S. Army soldiers start enforcing the law against civilians, that is most definitely a violation of Posse Comitatus, and all hell must be raised.  But don't shoot U.S. Army soldiers!  Everything changes if we fire on our own soldiers, just as it will change if they fire on us!

Discussion:  There is a considerable argument over whether the U.S. military will involve itself in domestic law enforcement, and an extension of that argument is whether the U.S. military will involve itself in civilian pacification when domestic law enforcement doesn't work.  I think it will, but with a reservation:  A National Guard soldier confiscating guns in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina said to a reporter, "God, I never thought we'd be doing this to Americans!" But he was doing it in spite of his misgivings.  I think the administration will pick and choose unit and brigade-level commanders who believe their mission will be to "help" the civilian population, and who will be gung ho about getting the job done.  And initially, certainly, the mission will be to "help."  But there is a thing called "mission creep":  Before they know it, these commanders and these troops will be engaging in pacification, and I have faith, I have a conviction, that these commanders and these troops will very shortly be wondering what the heck they are doing.  There will be confusion in the ranks and confusion in the leadership, and there will be attempts to dispel confusion by laying out the protocols and objectives in a hard-line no-nonsense way -- but it isn't going to work.  Sooner or later, both the commanders and the troops will be losing enthusiasm for the mission, and unit morale and cohesion will suffer greatly.

Now, read this carefully:  The surest way to get these commanders and troops back online and enthusiastic about their mission -- and about going above and beyond their mission into torture and murder -- is to start shooting at them.  Don't do it!  The thing to do is play on their confusion and lack of enthusiasm.  Go easy at first, but point out the rules:  Subtly mention their oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution.  Subtly point out the totalitarian mindset of the administration as indicated by the obvious intent of their orders.  Play it right, and sooner or later the troops will join the people against this illegal, Marxist, totalitarian administration.  And remember:  If the administration is an Occupation Government not deriving its authority from the U.S. Constitution, this is not sedition.

Here is how we prevent our own military from turning against us:

What it boils down to is this:  If you raise enough hell (anti-thesis) in opposition to some commonly-accepted point of view held by society (thesis), and keep it up, sooner or later mainstream society will lose faith in the commonly-accepted point of view and tentatively accept the opposing point of view (synthesis).

Karl Marx and Frederic Engels used Hegel's Dialectic to back up their communist economic theory, and commies have been using it ever since.  Remember the (communist and/or communist-backed) anti-war protesters of the '60's?  At the time they were in a distinct minority.  But how common is the anti-war view today?  Now that I mention it:  How common is the communist view of everything today?  And how many people recognize that it is the communist point of view today?

I have been appalled more than once by ignorami who have listened to me quoting the Declaration of Independence, or the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights, and have asked if the political ideology I was advocating was ... Communism.  Sigh.

Item:  If you want South Africa to become a communist-governed nation, call for divestiture (stopping investments) in South Africa on the grounds that the Afrikaaner government enforces apartheid, and you will bring down the Afrikaaner government so a dirty, murdering communist sonofabitch by the name of Nelson Mandela can become president and rich, while the victims of apartheid starve and are ravaged by HIV.

Item:  If you want Americans to give up their privacy and allow themselves to be databased and be required to show their papers every time some government thug demands it (a la 1930's Germany) then create a huge uproar about illegal immigration and how it is destroying the country, and sooner or later the people will accept totalitarianism for protection -- since ultimately, some form of electronic REAL ID is the ONLY WAY of ensuring that only American-born or naturalized citizens are walking around loose.  (Of course it will turn out to be less than 100% accurate, but the PTB won't care; they will have their target population under lock and key.)

Item:  If you want to destroy the grass roots militias springing up all over the country because they are a threat to corrupt and totalitarian government, steal a Stinger missile, launch it at a civilian airliner, and blame it on the militias.  (TWA 800:  That was the plan, but they overplayed their hand and the militia they planned to blame it on didn't fall for the bait they offered, so they had to wing it.)

Item:  If you want to go after the militias again, blow up a government building with satchel charges in the basement while a truck full of fertilizer is parked on the street out front, and blame it on disaffected militia members.  (Except that plan fell apart when they discovered their 30-member militia group in Idaho consisted entirely of one militia leader and twenty-nine government undercover agents provocateur trying to get the group to go blow something up.  So they had to shut up their patsy by executing him and throwing anyone else who could blow the whistle into solitary confinement and promise them a quick exit from this mortal coil if they opened their mouth.)

Item:  If you want Americans to give up their right to travel anonymously, crash some airplanes into some buildings and blame it on terrorists.  Then everyone will be willing to show their ID before boarding an airplane -- or a train, or a bus, and eventually even private cars -- all in the name of keeping us safe from terrorism, of course.

The Hegelian Dialectic is not a new plan; as I said, Hegel came up with it around 1825; Marx and Engels used it in 1847 (and ever since), and Adolph Hitler used it when he had his brownshirts burn down the Reichstag (government building) and blamed it on "terrorists" so the people would give him more power to deal with Germany's "enemies."  Hmm.  Remind you of anything going on today?  Like TWA 800?  Waco?  The Oklahoma City Murrah Building?  The Twin Towers?
