BREAKING: Medical Martial Law has Begun and What You Need to Know
Back on October 18, 2016 I did a show on Flock of Goats Preparedness the new Medical Martial Law regulations. It lay in wait until now. Rockland County Executive Ed Day held a press
conference earlier today to announce that he had declared a "state of emergency" regarding the
New York state county's 153 cases of measles over a 6-month period, and placed a ban on all children
under the age of 18 from appearing in any public area, which includes schools, malls and places of worship. Here
is what you need to know about this insidious regulation.
when most of the world was fixed on the imminent Y2K a nefarious gathering took place in Key West, Florida of the Society for Tropical Veterinary Medicine. The theme of this particular conference was "Tropical Diseases: Control and Prevention in the Context of "The New World Order." Quietly, the scientists talked about a pandemic of tropical diseases that would soon explode onto the
global scene. At the time, nobody thought much about tropical diseases being a threat to America. The conference
theme song, Jimmy Buffett's, Change in Latitude and a Change in Attitude and it has cast a dark foreboding prophetic
message that change was coming. Today migrants, illegal refugees, flood into other nation's breaking
sovereign border laws and bringing with them untold tropical diseases. Whether real, perceived or concocted for political
gain we are now facing Medical Martial Law by the CDC and HHS who have introduced a new 88 page regulation for dealing with
communicable diseases. It will impact each one of us.
in July of 2008 a 54-page document was published creating a framework between the CDC, Public Health, Law Enforcement, Judiciary, and Department of Corrections
to help take care of what ails you when you come down with a bug. If this comprehensive legal framework doesn't cure you fast
nothing will. It contains the information you need to know about quarantine, jail, the courts, law enforcement...balancing
your health and legal rights with the community at large.
As we review the new regulation let us bring to recollection
our Constitutional protections. The Founding Fathers inserted these things to keep us safe. The biggest threat
to our form of government is public health because it was kept vague because hygiene and health were life and death issues
back in the day.
At the federal level are various agencies and more than 3,000 health departments dealing with animal
and human health. The Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was established in 1946 in response to malaria affecting
US military personnel. In 1970 it was renamed to CDC and became responsible for non-communicable diseases as well. The
CDC was further transformed by the Preventative Health Amendment of 1992 charging it to provide direction in disease prevention,
injury and disability. The lead agency for biosurveillance is the CDC. It is a non-regulatory agency that is part of the Department
of Health and Human Services (HHS). The CDC is responsible for collecting, analyzing and disseminating national disease
and mortality data to public, state and local health agencies.
promulgates goals and standards, and encourages their adoption by making them required for CDC controlled incentive funding.
Among the many jobs of the CDC is to create surveillance and health monitoring software.
The responsibilities and scope of the CDC include:
the impact of disease surveillance
- Identifying individuals and groups that have conditions
- Reporting of collected information to appropriate agencies and entities
- Partner notification
- Prevention services
- Counseling and
- Services for poor and vulnerable populations
All health organizations have one basic structure in three formats. The basic structure is a Secretary with various
departments under him. They operate in the following ways:1.Indirect -- which is headed by a Director or Secretary who oversees
the functions of: communication, environmental health, laboratory, communicable diseases, and chronic diseases.2. Direct
-- as in the case of some states such as Missouri, the state health department has direct control and authority for supervision
of local health departments.3.Independent -- as in California and Illinois with local run health departments operated by a
local Board of Commissioners.
The OIE works in conjunction with the Center
of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).The OIE wildlife group monitors diseases which affect livestock and wildlife while
the CDC animal section monitors zoonotic diseases, those which affect animals and humans.
The 10th Amendment of the US Constitution clearly defines for the states the authority and primary
responsibility for protecting public health. Each state carries out legislation and develops regulations to fulfill its obligation.
Each state has primary authority and responsibility to protect human and animal health. States can, and often do delegate
this authority to local government.
of Health-Governmental Public Health Organization-State
are more than 60 state and tribal health departments that engage in state health, disease and pest programs. Some are part
of the national program(s) while others are not. State and local health departments are charged with the following:
- License and regulate overall health issues which may include the environment.
- Safety and sanitation
- Nuisance disputes
- Risky behavior situations (possibly affecting another person)
- Regulate healthcare
- Surveillance standards, regulations, methods
- Unique to
state control are certain disease controls, immunization and state statistical services.
Local Health Departments-Governmental Public Health Organization-County
These departments reports diseases within their jurisdiction to state and federal agencies.
Various departments within the local health department are responsible for communicable disease, community assessment, outreach
and education, environmental health services, epidemiology, food safety, health education, restaurant and TB education. A
small number of local health departments treat behavioral, mental health and veterinary health issues. Your local health Department
is instrumental in collaborating with State and the CDC for compiling a list of notifiable diseases which impact your community
and the nation as a whole. Recently the global organizations have created two lists which are required to be reported to them
due to the increase of international trade.
Local government has the primary
lead in biosurveillance, the collection of some of your most intimate data.
rest of the responsibilities are listed above under the state, which works closely with local government, though there are
unique and distinguishing differences.
Now let us examine how the CDC
has overstepped it's authority and jurisdiction with this new communicable disease regulation.
is a regulation is codifying (codification is the systematic collection and arrangement of regulations) HHS/CDC's activities
- Individual apprehension and examination or examined for
potential infection with a quarantinable communicable disease.
health prevention measures -traveler health screening at U.S. ports and transportation hubs including railway stations,
- Monitoring of persons through electronic and internet-based means, such
as email and webcam application tools.
- Implementation of travel restrictions and issuance of
travel permits by CDC for individuals under Federal quarantine, isolation, or conditional release orders, or in response
to a state or local request for assistance;
- Supposed due process for persons served with
a Federal public health isolation an quarantine including requiring HHS/CDC explain the reasons for issuing such
- Administrative processes for appealing the order,
reassessment of the order.
As we begin to review this regulation
it is critical to note that the rules of the game change during times of war. For all practical purposes we are at war
right now but in the future, when we least expect it, these rules that we will be looking at will change to escalate draconian
Unfortunately, we need to talk about definitions because these are part of your toolkit
to fight medical police powers actions. You need to familiarize yourself with them ahead of time so you know what they
are and how to use them. If you have questions, now is the time to ask, not down the road when you have been detained,
A communicable disease as an illness due to a specific
infectious agent or its toxic products which arises through transmission of that agent or its products from an infected person
or animal or a reservoir to a susceptible host, either directly or indirectly through an intermediate animal host, vector,
or the inanimate environment.
This regulation does not seek to limit the
types of communicable but rather applies to ALL communicable diseases that may impact human health. At present
the following diseases are listed but as previously mentioned all communicable diseases are include:
Cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis (TB), plague, smallpox, yellow fever, and viral hemorrhagic
fevers (such as Marburg, Ebola, Lassa fever, and Crimean-Congo), severe acute respiratory syndromes, and influenza caused
by novel or re-emergent influenza viruses that are causing or have the potential to cause a pandemic.
As a signatory to many international treaties and in harmony with the United Nations the US is slowly
implementing all of the notifiable diseases enumerated in the 1500 page Terrestrial Animal Health Code. They do classify
humans as animals for their purposes and in their documents.
Terrestrial Animal Health Code is a Living Document which means it changes all the time. What is communicable on day
is not the next. But typically once labeled the list just grows and no diseases are removed.
Apprehension means the temporary taking into custody of an individual or group for purposes
of determining whether quarantine, isolation, or conditional release is warranted.
Reasonably believed to be infected, as applied to an individual, means specific articulable facts upon which
a public health officer could reasonably draw the inference that an individual has been exposed, either directly or indirectly,
to the infectious agent that causes a quarantinable communicable disease, as through contact with an infected person or an
infected person's bodily fluids, a contaminated environment, or through an intermediate host or vector, and that as a consequence
of the exposure, the individual is or may be harboring in the body the infectious agent of that quarantinable communicable
The term reasonable removes you from Constitutional
protections of probable cause with a warrant and due process according to our Rule of Law. Reasonable is subjective
from the perspective of the agency. In a crime someone has to have opportunity and motive...well the agency has both
and with police powers they have the power to carry out their mandates.
environment means the presence of an infectious agent on a surface, including on inanimate articles, or in a substance,
including food, water, or in the air. Due to the fact that our food is contaminated as are our water and air so by default
the agencies are claiming police powers with the authority to do as they wish with all of us at any time and for any reason.
Isolation or social distancing separates sick people with a
contagious disease from people who are not sick.
separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
Modern quarantine includes a range of disease control strategies that may be used individually
or in combination, including:
- Short-term, voluntary home curfew.
The CDC is discussing 72 hour initial.
- Restrictions on the assembly of groups of
people (for example, school events).
- Cancellation of public events.
- Suspension of public gatherings and closings of public places (such as theaters).
on travel (air, rail, water, motor vehicle, pedestrian).
- Closure of mass transit systems.
- Restrictions on passage into and out of an area.
quarantine is used in combination with other public health tools, such as:
- Enhanced disease surveillance and symptom monitoring.
- Rapid diagnosis and treatment
for those who fall ill.
- Preventive treatment for quarantined individuals, including vaccination
or prophylactic treatment, depending on the disease.
does not have to be absolute to be effective. Research suggests that in some cases partial quarantine (that is, quarantine
of many exposed persons but not all of them) can be effective in slowing the rate of the spread of a disease, especially when
combined with vaccination.
Modern quarantine is more likely to involve
limited numbers of exposed persons in small areas than to involve large numbers of persons in whole neighborhoods or cities.
The small areas may be thought of as "rings" drawn around individual disease cases
Twenty U.S. Quarantine Stations, located at ports of entry and land border crossings, use these public health practices
as part of a comprehensive Quarantine System that serves to limit the introduction of infectious diseases into the United
States but anyone, anywhere can be quarantined under this new regulation.
Goes Awry: I was doing some lobbying in WA State and during the public hearing the State Veterinarian Dr. Leonard
Eldridge who relayed the following: He was talking about some horses that were quarantined in Eastern Washington during
the early 2000's. They had received a protozoa from a tick bites causing piroplamosis. The horses were outside
in a corral. He bragged about these quarantined horses. The unfortunate thing is that the ticks were not quarantined
and what he did is create a vector pool to contaminate other animals and humans who lived in the area.
Agreement refers to the contractual agreement entered into between the CDC and
an individual. It clarifies that the individual will observe public health measures authorized. The CDC considers it
reasonably necessary to protect the public's health, including quarantine, isolation, conditional release, medical
examination, hospitalization, vaccination, and treatment for the communal good.
Do not sign this agreement. There will be consequences if you do not agree. It is a contract and the
agencies will hold you responsible to the letter and spirit of the regulation and agreement.
When presented with any agreement always read the fine print. Most government contracts bind
you to numerous Executive Orders, Acts, and so forth that may violate your spiritual, moral or ethical value system and world-view
as well as your Constitutional Rights.
Communicable period means
the period during which an infectious agent may be transmitted either directly or indirectly from an infected individual to
Severe acute respiratory syndromes as follows: ‘‘Severe
acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other
respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential
to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled.
This subsection does not apply to influenza.
means that the communicable disease is in ‘‘a precommunicable stage, if the disease would be likely to
cause a public health emergency if transmitted to other individuals.''
really get dicey here. Many vaccinations are Live Vaccinations which means that for 10-45 days you are able
to communicable to others.
with the Shingles Vaccine
If you receive a live vaccine
you are communicable in the qualifying stage, precommunicable stage, or communicable stage. This
regulation makes it against the law to go to another state or even go to school, church or work.
Conditional release means ‘‘surveillance'' 42 CFR 71.1 and update
the definition to include public health supervision through in-person visits by a public health official (or designee), telephone,
or through electronic or internet-based monitoring, video chat, computer, mobile, and tablet communication for a person who
MAY (not confirmation necessary) have been exposed. Another troubling aspect of the conditional release is the health
designee. That could mean the dog catcher or a veterinarian or it could be anyone off the street.
Electronic or internet-based monitoring is defined as referring to mechanisms or technologies
allowing for the temporary public health supervision of an individual under conditional release, including electronic mail,
SMS texts, video conference or webcam technologies, integrated voice- response systems, entry of information into a web-based
forum, wearable tracking technologies, and other mechanisms or technologies as determined by the Director or supervising health
Wearable technologies include GPS and RFID patches, wrist
watches, jewelry, even hair accessories.
You become a prisoner for
merely becoming ill. Where will you draw your red line for privacy and freedom?
Medical representative is a medical representative means a physician, nurse practitioner, or similar medical
professional qualified in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases who is appointed by the HHS Secretary or CDC
Director. The mere fact that they are appointed provides a bias towards the CDC/HHS agenda and position while your medical
representative may be called into question for whatever reason. A person is beholding to whomever signs the pay check
so beware of this bias.
Medical reviewer means a physician,
nurse practitioner, or similar medical professional qualified in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases who is
appointed by the HHS Secretary or CDC Director to conduct a medical review. The same argument holds to true with the
medical reviewer as with the medical representative.
are ‘‘procedures conducted by an authorized health worker or other individual with suitable training and includes
the visual examination of the ear, nose, and mouth; temperature assessments using an ear, oral, or cutaneous or noncontact
thermometer or thermal imaging; auscultation (stethoscope); external palpation; external measurement of blood pressure; and
other procedures not involving the puncture or incision of the skin or insertion of an instrument or foreign material into
the body or a body cavity, except the ear, nose, or mouth.''
not enumerated in this document this not preclude DNA collection as it is considered non invasive. One must question
whether a body cavity search would be allowable as a manual cavity search would not be an instrument or a foreign material.
Medical TSA here we come.
Precommunicable stage to mean the stage
beginning upon an individual's earliest opportunity for exposure to an infectious agent and ending upon the individual entering
or reentering the communicable stage of the disease or, if the individual does not enter the communicable stage, the latest
date at which the individual could reasonably be expected to have the potential to enter or reenter the communicable stage.
Consider Shingles vaccination...
Public health emergency as means:
- Any communicable disease event as determined by the CDC Director with either
documented or significant potential for regional, national, or international communicable disease spread or that is highly
likely to cause death or serious illness if not properly controlled;
- Any communicable disease
event described in a declaration by the Secretary;
- Any communicable disease event the occurrence
of which is notified to the World Health Organization WHO or covered by International Health Regulations IHR
- One that may constitute a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.
Incubation period means the time from the moment of exposure to an infectious
agent that causes a communicable disease until signs and symptoms of the communicable disease appear in the individual. For
a quarantinable communicable disease, incubation period means the precommunicable stage.
Indigent means an individual whose annual family income is below 150% of the applicable poverty guidelines.
For 2 people that is $23,895.
Medical examination is the assessment
of an individual by an authorized health worker to determine the individual's health status and potential public health risk
to others and may include the taking of a medical history, a physical examination, and collection of human biological samples
for laboratory testing as may be needed to diagnose or confirm the presence or extent of infection with a quarantinable communicable
Once again, that person may not be your doctor or nurse.
Once this examination is completed although the federal government says it is private if any Third Party touches it during
processing then in becomes public information.
It remains to be
seen where these medical examinations will be held. In public area with bystanders and gawkers or in private where abuses
can occur once the doors are shut.
Public health prevention
measures is the assessment of an individual through non-invasive procedures and other means, such as observation, questioning,
review of travel documents, records review, and other non-invasive means, to determine the individual's health status and
potential public health risk to others.
Checkpoints have already
been inserted to law via various unrelated legislation's so what we face are Hitleresque interrogations when we plan to travel,
or depending upon the situation, even when we gather with others.
stage is statutorily defined (42 U.S.C. 264(d)(2)) to mean: (1) The communicable stage of a quarantinable communicable
disease; or (2) The precommunicable stage of the quarantinable communicable disease, but only if the quarantinable communicable
disease would be likely to cause a public health emergency if transmitted to other individuals.
CDC/HHS has crafted who an ill person is (you can have one of more of the following symptoms).
While craft is not a legal term per se it is usually associated with "fraud" and "artifice" being cunning
and tricky with guile.
- Fever of 100.4 °F (38°C) or
greater, feels warm to the touch, or gives a history of feeling feverish, flushed face, glassy eyes, or chills as
possible indications of the presence of a fever.
- Skin rash: This term means that the individual
has areas on the skin with multiple red bumps; red, flat spots; or blister-like bumps filled with fluid or pus that
are intact or partly crusted over. The rash may be discrete or may run together, and may include one area of the
body, such as the face, or more than one area.
- Difficulty breathing: This term means that the
individual is gasping for air, is unable to ‘‘catch'' his/her breath, is breathing too fast and shallow to
get enough air, or cannot control his/her own secretions.
- Persistent cough: This term means
that the cough is frequent and severe that is noticeable by others.
- Decreased consciousness
or confusion of recent onset: This term means that the individual is not fully aware of his/her surroundings or
may be unusually difficult to awaken. The individual may appear to be confused or disoriented.
or bleeding (without previous injury): This term means that the person has noticeable and unusual bruising or bleeding
from gums, ears, nose or areas on skin for which there is no obvious explanation.
diarrhea: This term means that the diarrhea is frequent and severe enough that others notice.
- Persistent vomiting: This term means that the individual has vomited two or more times (not due to air or sea
sickness) that others notice.
My question is will our
health care providers become informants when we go to see them as a condition of retaining their license to practice medicine?
Claimed Legal Authority
The enforcing agencies claim that sections 361 and 362 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 264, 265). Section
361, among other things, authorizes the Secretary of HHS to make (in other words use police powers) to enforce regulations
as in the Secretary's judgment are necessary to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases
from foreign countries into the states or possessions of the United States and from one state or possession into any other
state or possession.
Section 361(a) (42 U.S.C. 264(a)) authorizes the
Secretary to promulgate and enforce a variety of public health regulations to prevent the spread of these communicable diseases
including: Inspection, fumigation, disinfection, sanitation, pest extermination, destruction of animals or articles found
to be sources of dangerous infection to human beings, and other measures. As we see with the Zika fumigation we will
witness large numbers of people and animals killed as a result. Are agencies now so brazen to come to inspect
our private homes and businesses in the War on Communicable Diseases? This is absolutely not Constitutional despite
the agency flowery Constitutional claims.
Section 361(b) (42 U.S.C.
264(b)) authorizes the ‘‘apprehension, detention, or conditional release'' of individuals for the purpose of preventing
the introduction, transmission, and spread of a limited subset of communicable diseases, specifically those communicable diseases
by Presidential Executive Order or by collaboration.
Section 311 authorizes
the Secretary to accept state and local assistance in the enforcement of quarantine rules and regulations and to assist states
and their political subdivisions in the control of communicable diseases.
321 provides for the selection, establishment, control, management, and operation of institutions, hospitals, and stations
as may be necessary to carry out public health functions.
authorizes payment for the care and treatment, in a public or private facility, of individuals detained in accordance with
Historical Background for This Rulemaking
August 16, 2000, the Secretary transferred the authority for interstate control of communicable disease, including the authority
to apprehend, examine, detain, and conditionally release individuals moving from one state into another from the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) to CDC. The FDA retains its concurrent regulatory authority of regulating animals and
other products that may transmit or spread communicable diseases interstate. Thus, both CDC and FDA work in coordination.
On November 30, 2005, HHS/CDC published a notice of proposed rulemaking (70 FR 71892)
proposing to update its existing foreign and interstate quarantine regulations. Due to the quantity of comments that
proposal was rescinded. This proposal does not contain any provisions affecting Tribal lands, authorizing quarantine
‘‘in time of war,'' or altering HHS/CDC practices in regard to ‘‘bills of health'' or yellow fever
Rationale for Notice of Proposed
- Ebola which is not native the United States except
from travelers returning from infected areas.
- MERS which originates in the Middle-East
and is a camel disease.
- Measles despite the fact that on September 26, 2016 the World
Health Organization declared that both North and South America had been eradicated from measles.
Measles has been declared eradicated and so it is against the regulations to allow anyplace in the US to have outbreaks of measles.
Communicable Disease Detection Operations
- The CDC may conduct public health prevention measures at U.S. airports, sea
ports, railway stations bus terminals, and other locations where individuals may gather to engage in interstate travel
such as the highway or other public roads.
- The CDC operation will conduct non-invasive
procedures determined appropriate by the CDC to detect the presence of communicable diseases.
- The CDC may require individuals to provide contact information such as U.S. and foreign addresses, telephone
numbers, email addresses, and other contact information, as well as information concerning their intended destination,
health status, and travel history.
The CDC may authorize the apprehension, medical
examination, quarantine, isolation, or conditional release of any individual for the purpose of preventing the introduction,
transmission, and spread of quarantinable communicable diseases, as specified by Executive Order, based upon a finding that:
- The individual is reasonably believed to be infected with a quarantinable communicable
disease in a qualifying stage moving about interstate
- The individual is reasonably believed
to be infected with a quarantinable communicable disease in a qualifying stage and constitutes a probable source
of infection to other individuals who may be moving from a state into another state.
The term move was craftily chosen as it is a legal term whereby you are petitioning the court for
a rule or order to take any action. In this context the common use of the word is not being applied and will entrap
Forced Medical Examinations
Right now the federal government is haggling over whether you should be required to submit
to a medical examination before or after you are served with a Federal quarantine, isolation, and conditional release. It
is the old saying...what came first the chicken or the egg? Are you guilty first and then have to prove your innocence
or are you innocent until proven guilty.
A thorough medical history,
a physical examination including:
- Visual examination of the ear,
nose, and mouth;
- Temperature assessments using an ear, oral, or cutaneous or noncontact
thermometer or thermal imaging;
- Auscultation (listening with a stethoscope);
- External palpation;
- External measurement of blood pressure;
procedures not involving the puncture or incision of the skin or insertion of an instrument or foreign material into
the body or a body cavity, except the ear, nose, or mouth.
- Collection of human biological
samples for laboratory testing including DNA

request a medical review. This is the only type of hearing that you are allowed under this regulation. This is the venue
to can dispute your federal order of quarantine, isolation, or conditional release. That said, this review will only examine
if the agency information is medically accurate and that the agency is following the law, period.
This is not an Administrative Hearing before any governmental agency or before an administrative
law judge. Such hearings can range from simple arguments to what amounts to a trial. There is no jury, but the agency or the
administrative law judge will make a ruling.
It is important to
consider two vital factors in dealing with administrative agencies: 1) the rules and regulations are often special for each
agency and are not usually found in the statutes but in those regulations; 2) a member of the public must "exhaust his/her
administrative remedies" (take every step, including appeals) with the agency and its system before he/she can challenge
the administrative ruling with a lawsuit in court. There are exceptions (such as emergency or obvious futility) to exhausting
one's remedies, but those are rare.
You are have the option to choose
anyone to represent you at the review AT YOUR OWN COST.
If you are an
indigent and cannot afford representation the HHS/CDC will appoint a medical representative to provide at the government's
expense. Beware these are appointed by CDC/HHS and they may not have your best interest at heart.
The HHS/ CDC views the medical review process as a medical fact-finding. The medical
representative's role will be to assist the indigent individual with the examination of witnesses and the presentation of
factual and scientific evidence during the medical review.
The CDC will
only review your appeal "as soon as practicable" which could be a very long time in some instances.
A request for a medical review may only occur after the CDC's mandatory reassessment under
§70.15 and following the issuance of a Federal order continuing or modifying the quarantine, isolation, or conditional
The medical review shall be for the purpose of ascertaining whether
the CDC has a reasonable belief that you are infected with a quarantinable communicable disease in a qualifying stage.
The CDC shall notify you in writing of the time and place of the medical review.
The CDC shall designate a medical reviewer to review the medical or other evidence presented
at the review, make medical or other findings of fact, and issue a recommendation concerning whether the Federal order for
quarantine, isolation, or conditional release should be rescinded, continued, or modified.
You are only allowed to present a reasonable number of medical experts.
Prior to the convening of the review, you or your authorized representative shall be provided a reasonable opportunity,
to examine the available medical and other records involved in the medical review that pertain to that individual.
The CDC shall take such measures that it determines to be reasonably necessary to allow
you to communicate with an authorized representative in such a manner as to prevent the possible spread of the quarantinable
The medical reviewer may order a medical examination
of an individual when, in the medical reviewer's professional judgment, such an examination would assist in assessing the
individual's medical condition.
At the conclusion of the review, the medical
reviewer shall, based upon his or her review of the facts and other evidence made available during the medical review, issue
a written report to the Director as to whether, in the medical reviewer's professional judgment, the Federal quarantine, isolation,
or conditional release should be rescinded, continued, or modified. The written report shall be served on the individual and
the individual's authorized representative.
Upon conclusion of the review,
the Director shall promptly issue a written Federal order directing that the quarantine, isolation, or conditional release
be continued, modified, or rescinded. In the event that the Director continues or modifies the Federal quarantine, isolation,
or conditional release, the Director's written order shall include a statement that the individual may request that the CDC
rescind the Federal quarantine, isolation, or conditional release, but based only on a showing of significant, new or changed
facts or medical evidence that raise a genuine issue as to whether the individual should continue to be subject to Federal
quarantine, isolation, or conditional release.
Process for a Denied Travel Permit
If an individual is denied
an application for a travel permit, the denial will be issued in writing. The letter of denial will include the reasons for
the denial as well as detailed instructions on whom to contact for questions, including name, address, and telephone number,
as well as how to submit an appeal.
If you wish to contest HHS/CDC's determination
will have 10 calendar days after receiving the letter of denial to submit an appeal.
The appeal must be submitted in writing to the CDC, stating the reasons for the appeal and showing that there is
a genuine and material issue of fact in dispute.
Individuals should include
also the reference number listed in the notification letter they received.
appeal should be addressed to: Director, Division of Global Migration and Quarantine, ATTN: Travel Restriction and Intervention

individual and the government), he or she may be subject to criminal penalties as explained in the preamble to section 70.19.
Wearable Trackers and Surveillance
HHS/CDC has included requirements for ‘‘electronic or internet-based
monitoring'' referring to mechanisms or technologies allowing for the temporary public
health supervision of an individual under conditional release, including electronic mail, SMS texts, video conference or webcam
technologies, integrated voice- response systems, entry of information into a web-based forum, wearable tracking technologies,
video chat and voice calls from computers, tablets and mobile devices and other mechanisms or technologies as determined by
the Director or supervising health authority. HHS/CDC desires this language to be broad to include new technologies such as
implantable RFID chips and understands that this raises privacy implications for an individual who is reasonably believed
to be infected with a quarantinable communicable disease and who is subject to a conditional release order.
While the CDC and HHS have all the power to examine you, quarantine you, prevent you from your daily affairs and
travel all this costs money. Who pays? He who created the regulatory chaos is last on the list to pay for services
rendered, and they certainly will not be paying for lost wages, travel, etc... etc... You may have to cough up any expenses
incurred. On occasion your insurance company may pay but they have known that this was coming for many years and so
they may have inserted clauses in their contract with you about payment for these types of situations. Typically, in
the past, those who were isolated, quarantined, etc... felt the sting of expenses. If you would like the proposed regulation
goes into the minutia of who pays but it is tedious and basically they pretty much let themselves off the hook except when
one is indigent.
Data, Data Everywhere
This bureaucracy will create allot of data. Despite the siren songs of privacy your
data will not be kept secret or private. It is going to be swapped, traded, sold, shared with other collaborators.
Of Mice and Men
This regulation also covers animals and animal products that may be diseased. The most notable thing missing
were diseased people. While it is true that to some degree this regulation may address those people coming the US with
exotic diseases it was really created to control the American people.
What Other Things are In-Play to Create this Medical Martial Law Monster?
Executive Order 13563-Agencies are asked to consider all feasible alternatives to current practice
and the rulemaking as drafted. HHS/ CDC notes that the main impact of the proposals within this rule is to strengthen our
regulations by codifying statutory language to describe HHS/ CDC's authority to prevent the introduction, transmission, and
spread of communicable diseases. The intent of these proposed updates is to best protect U.S. public health and to inform
the regulated community of these updates.
Executive Order 12866, Regulatory
Planning and Review
The Regulatory Flexibility Act
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995
Policy Act (NEPA) created in 1969 and is the first law that establishes broad national framework for protecting the environment.
Do I hear Agenda 21 (2030) ringing in my ears?
Executive Order 12988:
Civil Justice Reform created in 1996 can you say Billy boy Clinton? In order to improve access to justice for all persons
who wish to avail themselves of court and administrative adjudicatory tribunals to resolve
disputes and to only allow "meritorious" civil claims preventing "needless litigation". It also
supposedly promotes "fairness" depending upon who you are, of course. To transform our system of law to administrate

You Won't Believe What These Atheists Say About Christianity
Mar 27, 2019 by Gary DeMar
François-Marie Arouet (1694-1778), known by his pen-name, Voltaire,
is reported to have said, "I don't believe in God, but I hope my valet does so he won't steal my spoons." For many
atheists, holding to religious tenets, at least for other people, is practical because it keeps them from stealing their stuff.
In the spirit of Voltaire, Atheist Richard Dawkins tweeted: "Before we rejoice at
the death throes of the relatively benign Christian religion, let's not forget Hilaire Belloc's menacing rhyme: ‘Always
keep a-hold of nurse, For fear of finding something worse.'" What's the "something worse"? Islam.
This isn't the first time Dawkins considered Christianity to be preferable than Islam.
Two years earlier "Dawkins begrudgingly admitted that Christianity may actually be
our best defense against aberrant forms of religion that threaten the world." Here's what he said:
There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian
suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death. . . I
have mixed feelings about the decline of Christianity, in so far as Christianity might be a bulwark against something worse.
What else "might be"? If Dawkins knew of something else that
"might be" or in fact is, I'm sure he would have mentioned it. Why didn't he say atheism is that bulwark? He couldn't
because of a statement like this:
In the universe of blind physical forces
and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, and other people are going to get lucky; and you won't find any
rhyme or reason to it, nor any justice. The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is
at the bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good. Nothing but blind pitiless indifference. DNA neither knows nor
cares. DNA just is, and we dance to its music.
Stuff just happens, and
there is no ultimate judge as to whether it's good, bad, or indifferent. Maybe the DNA in certain people has changed and is
giving us what we describe as radical Islam. It's merely "genetic replication." There's no morality attached to
it since DNA neither knows nor cares. Presently we are dancing to the inextricable advances of DNA. This is the world that
New Atheists like Dawkins has created.
In his book After Virtue: A
Study in Moral Theory, Alasdair MacIntyre, expresses the real-life consequences of a DNA-only world.
"The underlying structure of [Friedrich Nietzsche's] argument is as follows: if there is nothing to morality but expressions
of will, my morality can only be what my will creates. There can be no place for such fictions as natural rights, utility,
the greatest happiness of the greatest number. I myself must now bring into existence ‘new tables of what is good.'"1
Julian Huxley (1887-1975) made a similar statement in his book
Evolution: The Modern Synthesis (1942):
We are as much a product
of blind forces as is the falling of a stone to Earth or the ebb and flow of the tides. We have just happened, and man was
made flesh by a long series of singularly beneficial accidents.
Huxley (1894-1963), the grandson of Thomas Henry Huxley (1825-1895) and brother of Julian, justified a type of moral
anarchy based on the premise that if the world did not have meaning then there was nothing that could judge the thoughts and
actions of the human animal.
The following is from his book Ends and
I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning;
and consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption.
The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics. He is also
concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do. For myself, as no doubt
for most of my friends, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation from a certain system
of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom. The supporters of this system claimed
that it embodied the meaning - the Christian meaning, they insisted - of the world. There was one admirably simple method
of confuting these people and justifying ourselves in our erotic revolt: we would deny that the world had any meaning whatever.
How does a worldview without meaning fight a worldview that is all about meaning even
if that meaning is ruthless? And given the operating assumptions of atheism, how does an atheist formally judge another worldview?
How did Stephen Hawking's view of the cosmos compete and push back against Islam or any
other destructive worldview, and how would an atheist ultimately know if a worldview is destructive and should be opposed
given the following?
The human race is just a chemical scum on a moderate-sized
planet, orbiting around a very average star in the outer suburb of one among a hundred billion galaxies. We are so insignificant
that I can't believe the whole universe exists for our benefit. That would be like saying that you would disappear if I closed
First, how does he know this, and second, if what he says is true,
then how does it compete with a worldview that is filled with divine purpose even if that purpose is perverted? Again, how
would an atheist know what's fundamentally perverted if he does not have a fixed moral standard to evaluate it?
In the 2009 film Collision, the late Christopher Hitchens describes a conversation
he had with Dawkins:
"I said if I . . . could convince everyone to
be non-believers, then I have really done brilliantly, and there is only one left, one more, and then it would be done and
there would be no more religion in the world and no more deism and theism, I wouldn't do it.
"And Dawkins said, what do you mean you wouldn't do it? And I said I don't quite know why I wouldn't do it.
And it is not just because there would be nothing left to argue over and no one left to argue with, it is not just that, well,
it would be then, somehow if I could drive it out of the world, I wouldn't and the incredulity with which he looked stays
with me still, I've got to say."
It seems that Dawkins might have
caught up with Hitchens' point. Consistent atheism does not have an answer to the problem of evil because it can't define
it, measure it, weigh it, or see it with the microscope or the telescope because it resides as one of the communicable attributes
America's Second Civil War Has Already Begun - "We are five days away from fundamentally
transforming the United States of America."
March 4, 2019 11:39
In an excellent article by Jeff Lukens here on American Thinker, he asks the question, "Is a second civil war coming?" In reply,
I say that America's second civil war has already begun. Its opening shots were fired by Barack Obama when he stated,
"We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."
Most of this country is center-right and never considered America a place that needed transformation.
Most people can think of things they would change but few believe the nation needs to be torn down and rebuilt. Obama
failed but the left soldiers on in its quest for a new America remade in their own image.
When Obama went on his world apology tour, he wasn't apologizing forAmerica, he was apologizing for Americans.
This is the essence of this second civil war. Leftists are demi-gods who believe they are America
and that anyone who does not believe in them cannot lay legitimate claim to this country as their own.
Yes, this war has begun. The opening skirmish was the Obama presidency itself, which history
will see as a failure, despite what the media want us to believe in the here and now. Sure, he passed ObamaCare and
Dodd-Frank, overregulated, and ruled by executive diktat to great media acclaim. Yet, ObamaCare and Dodd-Frank have
been whittled away by legislation and judicial rulings, while Trump has prioritized deregulation and reversed many of Obama's
illegal executive orders.
The war's second battle was the 2016 presidential
election when Hillary Clinton, Obama's chosen successor, lost to a television personality whom very few took seriously as
a candidate. Trump won despite the Obama administration conspiring with the Clinton campaign to steal the election and
has remained as president even as that conspiracy fundamentally transformed into a failed coup attempt to depose him.
Trump's presidency has been the third battle and with his string of successes, the battle
is being won. This, despite near-universal acrimony and condemnation among the media, the Democrats, and the left.
But, "what difference, at this point, does it make?" because these victories
are pyrrhic. As the eminent Michael Walsh said of the left, "they never stop, they never sleep, they never quit."
Democrats are chipping away at this nation with their policies. This is a war of attrition and we Americans are being
For example, their "open borders" policy is
effectively importing a new electorate - one guaranteed to vote for them. The left agrees with Obama, there is nothing
wrong with America, it's those damn Americans, so they are going to drown the conservative vote with new Democrats.
It's the same with their policy of "everything should be free." Why vote for someone who promises equal opportunity
when someone else promises a better outcome?
Nuclear winter became global
warming became climate change became "we want total control over everything." The reason why Democrat candidates
for the presidency so quickly signed on to my congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal is its promise of comprehensive
control over every aspect of our lives. Eliminating planes, trains, and automobiles will keep us close to our homes
and jobs or for those "unwilling to work" in their basement enjoying their "universal basic income."
Dependent people without mobility are easier to control.
election looms as the next battle and it will be hard fought because Democrats have myriad policies that may sound great but
are really about control. They have always been masters of micturating down our leg and telling us it is raining.
Yet, they don't need to trick us into acquiescence, because even should Trump win, without
a complete reversal by the Democratic Party, a renewed free and fair media, and a return to the principles upon which this
nation was founded, this war will continue, and it is only a matter of time before the left again wins the Presidency, or
the House, or the Senate - or all three.
When that happens, this civil
war will become hot because the Democrats are going to come for our guns. An armed citizenry is a free citizenry, and
they can't have that.
The third most populated nation with 330,000,000
people, America has an estimated 350 million guns in circulation; any effort to seize them will call for the total mobilization
of our armed forces, city and state police, and the National Guard.
are not going to turn in their guns and politicians who think they will do so are being naïve. Fighting will surely
ensue as the forces of the regime go door to door to try to take them.
Many of those empowered to confiscate weapons won't obey orders. Defections will be common and there will be
fighting in the streets, limited at first, but it will soon break out into open rebellion. The regime will become increasingly
strident and many states will refuse to comply. Using Democratic-run "sanctuary cities" as an example of state
nullification of federal law, talk of secession will become rife.
ruling leftists will, of course, be surprised, and orders will be given to the remaining loyalist forces to put down the rebellion.
In the end, the death toll will far exceed the 620,000 people who died in our first civil war.
To people who say it can't happen here, I say history is replete with examples of places that no
longer exist where people believed "it can't happen here."
can't happen here? Open your eyes, it has already begun.

Is It Too Late for Nonviolent Means to Restore American Liberty?
"It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison and yet not free-to be under no physical constraint
and yet be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some

absolutely no evidence to support the statement that [America is] the greatest country in the world. We're 7th in literacy,
27th in math, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, 3rd in median household income, number
4 in labor force and number 4 in exports. We lead the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per
capita, number of adults who believe angels are real and defense spending, where we spend more than the next 26 countries
combined, 25 of whom are allies...
"[America] sure used to be [the
greatest country in the world ]... We stood up for what was right. We fought for moral reason. We passed laws, struck down
laws, for moral reason. We waged wars on poverty, not on poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbors, we put
our money where our mouths were and we never beat our chest. We built great, big things, made ungodly technological advances,
explored the universe, cured diseases and we cultivated the world's greatest artists AND the world's greatest economy. We
reached for the stars, acted like men. We aspired to intelligence, we didn't belittle it. It didn't make us feel inferior.
We didn't identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election and we didn't scare so easy. We were able to be all
these things and do all these things because we were informed... by great men, men who were revered. First step in solving
any problem is recognizing there is one. America is not the greatest country in the world anymore." - Aaron Sorkin, The
Newsroom (Episode 1)
Life in America has become a gut-wrenching, soul-sucking,
misery-drenched, demoralizing existence.
We have managed to survive crackdowns,
clampdowns, shutdowns, showdowns, shootdowns, standdowns, knockdowns, putdowns, breakdowns, lockdowns, takedowns, slowdowns,
meltdowns, and never-ending letdowns.
We've been held up, stripped down,
faked out, photographed, frisked, fracked, hacked, tracked, cracked, intercepted, accessed, spied on, zapped, mapped,
searched, shot at, tasered, tortured, tackled, trussed up, tricked, lied to, labeled, libeled, leered at, shoved aside, saddled
with debt not of our own making, sold a bill of goods about national security, tuned out by those representing us, tossed
aside, and taken to the cleaners.
We've had our freedoms turned inside
out, our democratic structure flipped upside down, and our house of cards left in a shambles.
We've had our children burned by flashbang grenades, our dogs shot, and our old folks hospitalized after "accidental"
encounters with marauding SWAT teams. We've been told that as citizens we have no rights within 100 miles of our own
border, now considered "Constitution-free zones." We've had our faces filed in government databases, our biometrics
crosschecked against criminal databanks, and our consumerist tendencies catalogued for future marketing overtures.
We've seen the police transformed from community peacekeepers to point guards for the
militarized corporate state. From Boston to Ferguson and every point in between, police have pushed around, prodded, poked, probed,
scanned, shot and intimidated the very individuals-we the taxpayers-whose rights they were hired to safeguard. Networked together
through fusion centers, police have surreptitiously spied on our activities and snooped on our communications, using
hi-tech devices provided by the Department of Homeland Security.
been deemed suspicious for engaging in such dubious activities as talking too long on a cell phone and stretching too
long before jogging, dubbed extremists and terrorists for criticizing the government and suggesting it is tyrannical
or oppressive, and subjected to forced colonoscopies and anal probes for allegedly rolling through a stop sign.
We've been arrested for all manner of "crimes" that never used to be considered
criminal, let alone uncommon or unlawful, behavior: letting our kids walk to the playground alone, giving loose
change to a homeless man, feeding the hungry, and living off the grid.
We've been sodomized, victimized, jeopardized, demoralized, traumatized, stigmatized, vandalized, demonized,
polarized and terrorized, often without having done anything to justify such treatment. Blame it on a government mindset that
renders us guilty before we've even been charged, let alone convicted, of any wrongdoing. In this way, law-abiding individuals
have had their homes mistakenly raided by SWAT teams that got the address wrong. One accountant found himself at the
center of a misguided police standoff after surveillance devices confused his license plate with that of a drug felon.
We've been railroaded into believing that our votes count, that we live in a democracy,
that elections make a difference, that it matters whether we vote Republican or Democrat, and that our elected officials are
looking out for our best interests. Truth be told, we live in an oligarchy, politicians represent only the profit motives
of the corporate state, whose leaders know all too well that there is no discernible difference between red and blue politics,
because there is only one color that matters in politics-green.
gone from having privacy in our inner sanctums to having nowhere to hide, with smart pills that monitor the conditions
of our bodies, homes that spy on us (with smart meters that monitor our electric usage and thermostats and
light switches that can be controlled remotely) and cars that listen to our conversations and track our whereabouts.
Even our cities have become wall-to-wall electronic concentration camps, with police now able to record hi-def video
of everything that takes place within city limits.
We've had our schools
locked down, our students handcuffed, shackled and arrested for engaging in childish behavior such as food
fights, our children's biometrics stored, their school IDs chipped, their movements tracked, and their data bought,
sold and bartered for profit by government contractors, all the while they are treated like criminals and taught to march
in lockstep with the police state.
We've been rendered enemy combatants
in our own country, denied basic due process rights, held against our will without access to an attorney or being charged
with a crime, and left to molder in jail until such a time as the government is willing to let us go or allow us to defend
We've had the very military weapons we funded with our hard-earned
tax dollars used against us, from unpiloted, weaponized drones tracking our movements on the nation's highways and
byways and armored vehicles, assault rifles, sound cannons and grenade launchers in towns with little to no crime
to an arsenal of military-grade weapons and equipment given free of charge to schools and universities.
We've been silenced, censored and forced to conform, shut up in free speech zones,
gagged by hate crime laws, stifled by political correctness, muzzled by misguided anti-bullying statutes, and pepper
sprayed for taking part in peaceful protests.
We've been shot by
police for reaching for a license during a traffic stop, reaching for a baby during a drug bust, carrying
a toy sword down a public street, and wearing headphones that hamper our ability to hear.
We've had our tax dollars spent on $30,000 worth of Starbucks for Department of Homeland
Security employees, $630,000 in advertising to increase Facebook "likes" for the State Department, and
close to $25 billion to fund projects ranging from the silly to the unnecessary, such as laughing classes for college
students and programs teaching monkeys to play video games and gamble.
been treated like guinea pigs, targeted by the government and social media for psychological experiments on how to manipulate
the masses. We've been tasered for talking back to police, tackled for taking pictures of police abuses, and threatened
with jail time for invoking our rights. We've even been arrested by undercover cops stationed in public bathrooms who
interpret men's "shaking off" motions after urinating to be acts of lewdness.
We've had our possessions seized and stolen by law enforcement agencies looking to cash in on asset forfeiture
schemes, our jails privatized and used as a source of cheap labor for megacorporations, our gardens smashed
by police seeking out suspicious-looking marijuana plants, and our buying habits turned into suspicious behavior by
a government readily inclined to view its citizens as terrorists.
had our cities used for military training drills, with Black Hawk helicopters buzzing the skies, Urban Shield exercises overtaking
our streets, and active shooter drills wreaking havoc on unsuspecting bystanders in our schools, shopping malls and other
"soft target" locations.
We've been told that national security
is more important than civil liberties, that police dogs' noses are sufficient cause to carry out warrantless searches, that
the best way not to get raped by police is to "follow the law," that what a police officer says in
court will be given preference over what video footage shows, that an upright posture and acne are sufficient reasons
for a cop to suspect you of wrongdoing, that police can stop and search a driver based solely on an anonymous tip,
and that police officers have every right to shoot first and ask questions later if they feel threatened.
Are you depressed yet? You should be.
than depressed, however, you should be outraged at what has been done to our country.
I'm outraged at what has been done to our freedoms.
We are no
less prisoners than those who are incarcerated behind prison walls.
Aldous Huxley recognized in his foreword to A Brave New World Revisited: "It is perfectly possible for a man to
be out of prison and yet not free-to be under no physical constraint and yet be a psychological captive, compelled to think,
feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation wants him to think,
feel and act. . . . To him the walls of his prison are invisible and he believes himself to be free."
The prison we inhabit may not be as bleak as the soul-destroying gulags described by Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn in his masterpiece The Gulag Archipelago, but that's just a matter of aesthetics.
It's time to stop waiting patiently for change to happen, stop waiting for someone to rescue you,
and stage a breakout.
Get mad, get outraged, get off your duff and get
out of your house, get in the streets, get in people's faces, get down to your local city council, get over to your local
school board, get your thoughts down on paper, get your objections plastered on protest signs, get your neighbors, friends
and family to join their voices to yours, get your representatives to pay attention to your grievances, get your kids to know
their rights, get your local police to march in lockstep with the Constitution, get your media to act as watchdogs for the
people and not lapdogs for the corporate state, get your act together, and get your house in order.
Appearances to the contrary, this country does not belong exclusively to the corporations or the
special interest groups or the oligarchs or the war profiteers or any particular religious, racial or economic demographic.
This country belongs to all of us: each and every one of us-"we the people"-but most especially, this country
belongs to those of us who love freedom enough to stand and fight for it.
I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we are fast approaching the point at which we
will have nothing left to lose.
Don't wait for things to get that bad
before you find your voice and your conscience.
As Solzhenitsyn's character
reflects in The Gulag Archipelago:
"How we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have
been like if ... during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city,
people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step
on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush
of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The cursed machine would have ground to
a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more - we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and
simply deserved everything that happened afterward."
Take your stand
now-using every nonviolent means at your disposal-while you still can.
wait to reflect back on missed opportunities to push back against tyranny.
wait until you're the last one standing.
Time is running out.

Despite what the political parties would like you to believe, the problem
in America is not the politicians, it is the pulpits. I hate to break the news to you, but most of America's pulpits are filled
with cowardly men. They are a shame to the Christ they claim to serve.
words, aren't they? Not the type of thing that will make any friends in this "cheap-grace" culture in which we live.
But that's okay. I'm not looking to make friends.
I am about fed-up with
what I see. How did we ever get such man-pleasing leaders? All that our fore-fathers held dear is being destroyed before our
very eyes and hardly a peep from the pulpit. They don't want to hear it. It's the pulpiteers that I am talking about. They
are concerned with being "to harsh", they tell me that "Jesus is in control," that they are not "called"
to fight evil and that "we should pray for our enemies."
have these guys come from? What we need is a return of the Voice of God thundering through prophets standing in America's
pulpits. Not the prissy Purpose Driven drivel passing as the Gospel today. The feminized-preachers of today cannot hold a candle to those who ushered in The Great Awakening which led to the American Revolution, and the abolition of slavery - two world-changing events spearheaded by the pulpit.
Listen to the message of America's premiere preachers today. Rick Warrenand his Purpose Driven Life have infiltrated the Church. Over 400,000 pastors have attended his conferences and over 40 million of his books have
been sold. Wikipedia tells us "Since September 2002, over 30,000 congregations, corporations, and sports teams across the United States have participated in a "40 Days of Purpose" emphasis. A May 2005 survey of American pastors and ministers conducted
by George Barna asked Christian leaders to identify what books were the most influential on their lives and ministries." The Purpose
Driven Life was the most frequent response. Today's Christians are more familiar with the words of Warren than the Words
of Jesus. Thousands of America's churches have used it in their Bible studies and thousands of preachers preach Warren's message.
Joel Osteen was voted Most Influential Christian in 2006. His preaching style focuses on "the goodness of God rather than sin." He is a self-described "Life-coach"
and "thinks that there are probably others better qualified, or more gifted for explaining Bible verses.
Osteen explains that he tries to teach Biblical principles in a simple way, emphasizing the power of love and a positive attitude." Wikipedia. "Presently, Osteen and several Lakewood Church team members travel across the nation, presenting programs in large
stadiums to a paying public." He has sold millions of books to millions of feel-good Christians.
While our nation is killing babies, our schools are indoctrinating Christian-kids in Secular Humanism, and "Truth has fallen in the streets," our preachers are attending church-growth seminars, using ‘self-help' books to supplement the Bible, and chasing
after the butts and bucks. They are fiddling while the nation burns, building their church rather than Christ's Kingdom.

From a bygone era, the sound from the
pulpit rumbles throughout the ages.
"Could a mariner sit idle
if he heard the drowning cry? Could a doctor sit in comfort and just let his patients die? Could a fireman sit idle, let men
burn and give no hand? Can you sit at ease in Zion with the world around you DAMNED?" -Leonard Ravenhill
"Churches don't need new members half so much as they need the old bunch made
over. There wouldn't be so many non-church goers if there were not so many non-going churches. Too many churches are little
more than four walls and a roof." -Billy Sunday
from the pulpit today sings a different song. "The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their
means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" Jeremiah 5:31. Truth, justice
and the American way are a thing of the past.
"None calleth for
justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity." Isaiah
And tragically, the pulpits are silent.

Democrats just legalized murdering their own children in New York... do you really think they
won't murder Christians and Trump supporters next?
Tuesday, January 29, 2019 by: Mike Adams
Tags: abortion, child murder, democrats, Demoncrats, evil, executions, genocide, infanticide, left cult, Left-wing, mass murder, New York, Satanists, terrorism, violence
(Natural News) Under a new law that just took effect in New York, a child may be aborted up to the due date or even during the birth itself. If that child survives the attempted
abortion and is born alive, that child may be murdered on sight by an abortionist to "complete"
When the law was passed, NY Democrats applauded and cheered in the
state Senate chambers, and Cuomo ordered a prominent building lit up in pink light to signify the blood of children that Democrats
are ecstatic to see spilled on a daily basis.
With this decision, New
York has quite literally been taken over by Satanists and demons. They are called "Demoncrats," and they now openly
applaud the legalized murder of human babies.
The obvious question now
becomes this: If these Demoncrats are thrilled about murdering their own children (i.e. future Demoncrats), do you think they
will hesitate one bit to start murdering Christians, conservatives, Trump supporters or white people?
Make no mistake, the Demoncrat agenda is not simply the mass censorship of conservative, pro-Christian
free speech, nor even the murder of President Trump. Their true agenda is a nationwide ethnic cleansing mass murder campaign against their political opponents,
carried out in a way that will make the Holocaust look tiny in comparison.
my video commentary here, which explains why these New York Demoncrats will "burn in Hell" for their heinous crimes
against children (and why we must stop them now as a matter of self-defense against mass murder).
I'm not the only one who has come to this realization, by the way.
Columnist Kurt Schlichter has reached the same inescapable conclusion and now writes about it in a hard-hitting piece first published at TownHall.com.
Schlichter: The Left is gearing up to commit mass genocide
across America, targeting white people for government executions
I reprint the most important paragraphs from Schlichter's article, which I consider a must-read piece for understanding and
navigating our modern world:
The Dems are spooning with socialism,
and the goal of socialism is written in blood on the pages of history. The unapproved must be liquidated, and they are making
no secret that you are unapproved.
You better get your head in
the game or you'll find your head in a guillotine - definitely figuratively, maybe literally.
They hate you for not submitting, for being an obstacle to their rule.
Facts and evidence don't matter because the trial is already over and you've already
been condemned because of who you are. You can't ever clear yourself with the left because they don't hate you for what you
did or will do, but for who you are. That's where the babble about "white privilege" comes from - if you're white
and conservative you're wrong, and if you're not white and conservative, you're even...wronger.
It's not about race or gender or orientation, but about power - they want to take yours, to
strip you of your sovereignty and make you kneel. Their SJW posturing is all a lie and a scam. They don't care about ending
racism, sexism, homophobia, or any of the myriad other -isms and -phobias they blather about. Those poses are just weapons
to be used to capture what they really want - total power over you. They seek to shame you into submission, and if that won't
work, then they'll do whatever it takes.
Do you think the Democrats
of yesterday spent a lot of time weighing the evidence before lynching black men? Those Democrats murdered black men for two
reasons - because they wanted to send a message to other black men about the price of resistance, and because they enjoyed
When the Democrats of today were on Twitter mobbing
those children from Kentucky for daring not to submit, couldn't you sense the hideous joy they felt screeching for the heads
of those kids? Their souls are empty of morality and religion, and nature abhors a vacuum, so they filled that vacancy with
Orwell wrote about the daily "Two-Minute
Hate," and how is this any different? These unloveable losers have nothing else in their lives, no connection with anything,
so they find meaning by joining together with other misfit psychopaths so they can lose themselves in a frenzy of hatred where
they get to play the role of righteous avengers.
Think of what
they would do with real power...
And understand that they might
get it. The Democrat Party is not just listening to them. It's being transformed by them. Name the prominent Democrat politician
who stood up and said, "This Covington Kid crucifixion is wrong!"
Do you think that a leftist Supreme Court majority won't construe the First Amendment to exclude protection for
"hate speech," by which I mean any thoughts you might wish to express that they object to?
Do you think they won't turn the federal bureaucracy - including law enforcement -
against their political enemies a thousand times harder than before, having been rewarded for the last decade of doing so?
Do you think they won't start tossing dissenters into prison? They do in England.
You can go to jail for a tweet there - and do you think the left thinks that's a bad thing, or a creative European innovation
that needs to be imported?
How about the Second Amendment? Are
you kidding? The idea that our citizenry maintains the ultimate veto over tyranny drives them bonkers.
Do you think they won't use violence to make you conform? Hell, Democrat presidential
candidate Eric Swalwell is willing to nuke you for not giving up your guns. We know that because he said so.
It's time to stop pretending that people who hate our guts don't hate our guts, and
that given the chance they won't act exactly like people who hate our guts would act.
The time to stop them is now, while we still can peacefully, before they quit tweeting about killing and start
doing it beyond the occasional Bernie Bro at a ball field. We need to purge the weakhearts and Fredocons from positions of
authority in our movement and be all-in for victory in 2020. In the meantime, we need to aggressively push our campaign to
remake the courts. And it sure would not hurt to follow the Founders‘ advice to exercise our Second Amendment rights
to reinforce the deterrent to tyranny that is an armed citizenry.

Infanticide Is The Historical Hallmark Of A Pagan Culture
Judeo-Christian principles helped to form our culture,
and Christianity is deeply pro-life. Until now, restraining evil as Christianity defines it bound Americans together with
a common creed.
By Georgi Boorman
February 4, 2019
Gov. Ralph Northam, who just made deeply troubling comments on abortion, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who just signed the
country's most radical abortion law, have been the subject of intense ire in recent days. The outrage is coming not just coming
from "radical" pro-lifers, but people from across the political spectrum.
Why? Because virtually no one but the far left believes it is morally acceptable to allow infants to be murdered
seconds before birth, or to be left to die after delivery at the behest of the mother.
Yet the nation has been shocked by radical left's boldness in their mission to define preborn human beings as disposable
non-persons. Where is this evil coming from, and how do we stop it?
Slaughter of the Young and the Elderly
Abortion and infanticide
have historically been common practices. In the first century AD, infanticide was a common and culturally accepted practice
across the world. The murder of infants was a regular occurrence in Europe into the Middle Ages and beyond, despite being
condemned by both church and state.
The practice was not confined to the
desperate, illiterate, impoverished masses, as if "enlightened" thinkers knew better. The Twelve Tables of Roman Law, admired by Cicero, contains the command that, "A dreadfully deformed child shall be quickly killed."
Likewise, the wealthy first century Roman philosopher Seneca once wrote, "We doom scabby sheep to the knife, lest they should infect our flocks. We destroy monstrous births,
and we also drown our children if they are born weakly or unnaturally formed; to separate what is useless from what is sound
is an act, not of anger, but of reason." This from a Stoic, who supposedly believed virtue to be the highest good. Notably,
Seneca was Nero's tutor.
Infanticide was an acknowledged option for any
child who was deformed, sickly, of uncertain paternity, the wrong sex, or simply unnecessary to the household. Aristotle, revered by many a university professor, wrote that, "As to exposing or rearing the children born, let there be
a law that no deformed child shall be reared," and "if any people have a child as a result of intercourse in contravention
of these regulations, abortion must be practiced on it before it has developed sensation and life."
The Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans all practiced child sacrifice to appease their gods. The Chimú
civilization, located in what is now Peru, sacrificed more than 140 children at one time some 550 years ago. The children's chests were slashed open, presumably to remove their hearts.
The citizens of the powerful ancient city Carthage in Phoenicia ritually sacrificed their infants. Archaeologists believe the preferred age of sacrificial infants was less than three months old. According to the
writing of early AD Greek biographer Plutarch, "But with full knowledge and understanding [the Carthaginians] offered
up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they
were so many lambs or young birds."
The residents of the broader
region of Canaan (late second millennium B.C.) were condemned numerous times by the ancient prophets of Israel for their child sacrifice. The prophet Jeremiah, in his judgment against
apostate Israel, foretold that the valley of Hinnom, where the Israelites were sacrificing children to Baal, would be called
"the valley of Slaughter" (Jeremiah 19:5-6).
Evidence for both
ritualistic and utilitarian murder can be gathered from around the globe. In times of famine, the Inuit would abandon the
elderly (both with and without consent) or dispense of them by quicker means. The Bactrians of ancient Persia were reported
to have fed their sick and elderly to dogs trained especially for this purpose. Nearby cultures were supposed to have had similar senicidal customs. Among the Massagetae, Herodotus wrote that, "Human life does not come to its natural close with this people," but that the people
sacrificed their elderly, boiled their flesh, and ate it.
Not every single
community on earth had such evil practices, but the embrace of death as the first solution to a family or tribe's problems
has been wickedly banal, historically speaking.
Morality Has Saved Us from Much Evil
Northam's endorsement of
infanticide by exposure is only shocking because we have lived in a rare cultural moment in which infanticide is considered
abhorrent. This extraordinary development is no accident. A sense of morality about life and death is not the product of evolution
over the last 2,000 years. Rather, humanity's progress out of death culture is due to nothing less than Judeo-Christian influence.
As formerly mentioned, the Christian God condemned child sacrifice through his prophets;
Israelites were specifically commanded not to kill their children. The concept of bloodguilt is found throughout the Old Testament,
even in cases where death was seemingly accidental.
Murder was an abomination.
The blood of Abel, the first recorded murder victim in the Bible, "cried out" to the Lord from the ground. The gravity
of taking a human life was no less firm among the followers of Jesus, who consider the Hebrew scriptures the word of God.
As the gospel spread, so did the idea that all human life is precious.
belief in the sanctity of life overrode even the commonly accepted practice of abortion. Contrast the evil of Aristotle's
belief with what Tertullian, an early church father, wrote in "Apologia": "In our case, murder being once for all forbidden, we may
not destroy even the foetus in the womb...To hinder a birth is merely a speedier man-killing; nor does it matter whether you
take away a life that is born, or destroy one that is coming to the birth. That is a man which is going to be one; you have
the fruit already in the seed."
Elsewhere, he wrote: "Thus,
you read the word of God, spoken to Jeremias: ‘Before I formed thee in the womb, I knew thee.' If God forms us in the
womb, He also breathes on us as He did in the beginning: ‘And God formed man and breathed into him the breath of life.'...Was
it, then, a dead body at that stage? Surely it was not, for ‘God is the God of the living and not the dead.'"
As Tertullian recounted, believers in the early church would search through the heaps
of refuse in Roman cities and rescue infants from among the refuse and broken pottery. There is archaeological evidence to support the fact that infants were thrown in the trash or into the sewer, sometimes deliberately killed instead of
being out left to die by exposure. That children should never be trash was a revolutionary concept in the early centuries
The fourth century Roman emperor Constantine, who is generally
believed to have converted to Christianity and was at the very least influenced by it, considered infanticide a crime. Later, Emperor Valentinian, also a professed Christian, officially outlawed the practice by requiring that all children
Since that time, the belief that God made man in his own image
and set him apart from the rest of creation for communion with his creator, that he is "fearfully and wonderfully made,"
and that therefore God's prohibition against murder is to be upheld, has been the basis for the protection of human life.
Christianity Deeply Shaped the Early Days Of America
Infanticide was outlawed in colonial America. The earliest recorded execution for infanticide was in 1648 in Massachusetts. Similar court cases from the 17th and
early 18th century are found in Maryland, Maine, Virginia, and New York. Abortion was also a prosecutable offense. Between
1670 and 1807, there were 51 convictions of infanticide in Massachusetts.
seriousness with which our forefathers considered the murder of children was not due to the influence of the "great"
philosophizing of Aristotle, Seneca, or Cicero. It was due to the Christian faith. It is Christians who have historically
run orphanages, adoption agencies, and pregnancy clinics. It is Christians who advocate most fiercely for heartbeat bills
and abolition. It is Christians out on the sidewalk, day after day, begging women not to kill their babies and offering to
connect them with church members who are willing to adopt. Christians take seriously the biblical command to "look after
the orphan and widow in their distress."
Where the kingdom of God*
invades, death flees, both spiritually and physically. Where populations dwell in spiritual darkness, death finds favor. How
can I know this for sure? How do I know our contemporary revulsion toward infanticide is not simply the result of human "progress"
over the last two millennia? Because when Christianity is aggressively suppressed within a culture, as it has been under Communist
and Socialist regimes, society chokes on the stench of death.
Godless Regimes Did Not Value Human Life
Adolph Hitler's genocidal
socialist regime* practiced the euthanasia of "life unworthy of life" and murdered about six million Jews. Communist
dictator Joseph Stalin had no qualms with mass starvation. A quarter of the Cambodian population died under Pol Pot. Altogether,
godless collectivism led to the deaths of about 100 million people in the 20th century. Karl Marx's philosophy implicitly assumed that some segments of the population must be "left behind" in the march toward utopia.
American culture has stood in stark contrast against this backdrop of death and misery,
and it's not because Anglo Americans are inherently better than any other people group. It is because this nation
was founded on Christian principles, namely that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. First among
those rights is life. The principles of Christianity have been deeply formative to American culture. Restraining
evil and promoting prosperity bound us together with a common creed.
as we are now witnessing, that influence is fading. Majority support for legal abortion has been steady for decades, and millennials are just as supportive of it as the previous two generations. We are less
religious than ever, and it is no coincidence that the godless are some of the biggest proponents of late-term abortion and
infanticide. Those who profess Christianity and publicly bless abortion clinics do so against the core teachings of their
own faith--it is not an intramural dispute, but an aberration.
are seeing now is a return to a world that does not know God and does not want to know God. This is the consequence of our
detachment from Christianity and its moral system. The truth is that you do not attain a culture where human life (albeit
born life) is almost universally cherished without the knowledge of the one true God.
As the Apostle Paul reiterated from Old Testament writers: "None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands;
no one seeks for God...Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, and the way of peace they have
not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes."
The fact that
we are surrounded by a wealth of resources and still 13 percent of all pregnancies in America and 28 percent in the state of New York end in murder should tell you something. This is not a matter of inequality of rights between the sexes or inequality of resources.
It is a matter of the heart, and a heart without God is "desperately wicked." The god of Progress has led its worshippers to embrace death as easily as the Canaanite gods that surrounded the people
Where idolatry is not directly involved, a perceived lack of
resources has, for millennia, been the excuse to choose death, not the reason. In such a wealthy and technologically advanced
society, it is perhaps more obvious a truth now than it was 2,000 years ago, but the truth has always been there.
*I am not talking about the political Christendom of Europe and the
Crusades. I am talking about the spiritual kingdom of God as referred to by Jesus and the New Testament writers.
**Before you tell me, "Hitler was a Christian!" watch this video of a "Christmas tree" with a Swastika suspended over the top. Hitler also is reported to have said, "I'll have my reckoning with the church. I'll have it reeling on the ropes." The Nazis who surrounded Hitler
deeply hated Christianity and wanted to see it destroyed.

Canadian Christians Branded As "UnCanadian" For Traditional Religious Beliefs
By Jonathon Van Maren/Bridgehead.ca December 06, 2018
Attacks on freedom of religion and freedom of conscience are a near-constant
in Canadian news cycles of late, from physicians fighting in court for the right not to refer for procedures they find immoral
to religious schools battling the government in court to maintain the independence and integrity of their institutions.
Many religious views have been recast by many progressive politicians
and academics (with the obedient acquiescence of the media) as hateful and even vicious, and as such it is open season on
those who dare to hold these views and worse, speak of them aloud.
So I am not surprised that a recent study by the Angus Reid Institute in partnership with Cardus, a conservative
think tank based out of Ottawa, indicated that only 59% of Canadians say that religious freedom makes our country a better
place, leaving a full 41% that presumably feel that religious freedom makes our country a worse place, or at least feel ambivalent
about a fundamental freedom. Ray Pennings of Cardus broke it down recently in the Hamilton Spectator:
While a clear majority sees the benefits of religious freedom, it's curious
that more of us aren't enthusiastic about this fundamental human right. What's at play here?
There are likely several factors, including a hardcore secularist viewpoint, though this
remains a minority view in Canada.
The same survey
used a series of measures to classify Canadians among three categories - those welcoming of faith in public life, those who
are unsure and those hostile to it. The proponents of public faith are the largest group at 37 per cent, while the other two
weigh in at 32 per cent each. Only 31 per cent of the group hostile to public faith say religious freedom makes Canada better.
An almost equal proportion says it makes Canada worse.
Clearly, hardcore secularism contains a fervent opposition to religion and its free expression.
Related to that secularism could be prejudice against public displays of
faith. Indeed, half of Canadians say they're uncomfortable with religious garments or symbols in the workplace - something
that disproportionately affects Muslims, Jews and Sikhs. Such discomfort may translate into lower support for religious freedom.
Still, that's not the whole story. Could it also be that
some Canadians feel that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms' guarantee of religious freedom doesn't adequately protect them?
If so, their answer about religious freedom may reflect their judgment on the effectiveness of Charter protections.
Seven in 10 Canadians say they feel the federal government respects
their religious community. And almost six in 10 say Canadian society either makes room for their faith and values or has little
impact on them...Now the bad news: Christians don't fare as well. Overall, Catholics and other Christians feel less respected
by government and less welcome in society than non-Christians do.
But it's Canada's evangelical Protestants who feel especially marginalized. They're the most likely to say the feds
disrespect them, with four in 10 evangelicals saying so. And just over half of this religious minority says society shuts
them out. They may not be enjoying all the benefits of religious freedom.
This finding is unsurprising given the news of the last year:
Evangelicals and other Christians bore the brunt of the federal government's Canada Summer
Jobs fiasco, which filtered out grant recipients based on their beliefs. Legal challenges are ongoing but haven't borne fruit
The evangelical Trinity Western University
in B.C. faced discrimination by several law societies opposed to it setting up a law school - discrimination that the Supreme
Court of Canada eventually upheld.
And in Alberta,
it's mostly evangelical schools that are threatened with the loss of funding over an ideological disagreement with the provincial
But could there also be some amnesia
about the fundamental human right of religious freedom?
What many may not realize is that religious freedom is not just for the religious; it benefits everyone. It protects
the ability of the religious and non-religious to act according to their deepest beliefs - informing our freedoms of speech,
association and assembly. More Canadians need to see and understand this connection.
The fact that they don't, of course, can be tied to a number of things. Traditional Christian
views are now considered to be widely "offensive," a word now frequently used to justify censorship. People are
simply less tolerant of being exposed to ideas they dislike, and less willing to engage in discussion.
Our current prime minister's rhetoric doesn't help: Justin Trudeau
has consistently condemned traditional Christian beliefs as "unCanadian," helping to cement the idea that Canadian
Christians are somehow less Canadian because they are Christian.
It is fascinating to me how such an a historical view can be so consistently propagated. Canada was founded on Judeo-Christian
principles, and this fact was once widely known and understood.
You cannot drive anywhere in this country without encountering evidence of Canada's Christian heritage. The aging
churches, the moss-covered Celtic crosses in the graveyards, the religious nature of the cenotaphs and memorials to the fallen.
By the new standards of Justin Trudeau and his ideological fellow-travelers,
the men and women who built this country are somehow less Canadian than they are because they believed different things about
the fundamental nature of life and family. This view cannot be defended, and therefore it is easier for Trudeau and those
like him to instead respond to disagreement with sneering and condescension.
In the broad sweep of Canadian history, I would prefer to stand with those indomitable and hard-working
men and women of faith who held to the traditions of their ancestors and thousands of years of revealed truth rather than
a man who chases the progressive absurdities of the current moment and sneers at the noble generations who believed things
he cannot understand.

The Biblical Answer to Migrant Caravan is Bombs and Bullets
by News Division · Published November 2, 2018 · Updated November 3, 2018
Biblical solution to the migrant caravan preparing to invade the United States includes bombs and bullets.
As a pastor and theologian, the answer is clear to me. A nation has a right to sovereign
borders. The invasion of sovereign borders by those who are not permitted therein should be met with judicial force. To use
violent force upon foreign invaders is Biblical, ethical, and godly. This thesis shall be laid out in detail.
EVANGELICALS HAVE LOST THEIR WAY
Preemptively, let me say that American evangelicals have lost their way. The discussion on immigration among evangelicals
has been just one part of an overarching internal conflict that has flared up in recent years thanks to the propagation and
popularization of secular philosophies which have invaded our academies ever as much as the impending migrant horde threatens
to overtake our southern border. Led by mainstream denominational liberals in rainbow-colored clerical garb and New Calvinist
social justice warriors on the theoretical right, both groups have coalesced to teach young seminarians and religious
activists the tenets of Critical Race Theory, Cultural Marxism, Multiculturalism, Intersectionality, and Victimology. In this
bizarre union between the religious left and those ostensibly on the religious right, a potpourri of Arminians, Pelagians,
practical agnostics and Calvinists are all seemingly in agreement that the Bible condones lawlessness done in the name of
kindness to the sojourner.
On this subject, mainstream religious leftists
like Rachel Held Evans and Jim Wallis are in perfect union with historically conservative Southern Baptists, Albert Mohler
and Russell Moore. The latter have been greatly influenced by the personality of Tim Keller, a popular thought leader among
the New Calvinists who use traditional Confessions of Faith like toilet paper. Keller, a Cultural Marxist (by any standard definition and by his own admission) from New York City, has had a powerful footprint among The Gospel Coalition,
whose leaders have commandeered the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC),
that in an ideal world would be providing Biblical answers to such serious ethical questions as illegal immigration. Instead,
that organization - the ERLC - directs the Evangelical Immigration Table, a front organization belonging to George Soros and his National Immigration Forum. In fact, in no place is the union between the left and right more noticeable, as the
director for the ERLC, Russell Moore, serves as on the board of directors for the Evangelical Immigration Table along with
Jim Wallis (who is famously progressive, denies the inerrancy of Scripture, and is a liberal on virtually every issue of ethical
importance). Along with Soros' funding of this Southern Baptist entity, Clinton globalist billionaire financier, James Riady, has funded New Calvinist institutions - like Westminster Philadelphia and Ligon Duncan's Reformed Theological Seminary. Riady, who was expelled from the United
States for trying to corrupt the American political system with obscene amounts of corrupt foreign cash, is now the financial
sugar daddy of the seminaries pushing out Reformed graduates, most of whom are a part of the new Social Justice movement.
HOW LEFTISTS WON OVER THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT
Those on the supposed right who are fully "woke" and fully committed to acts of "social
justice" that diminish the rule of law and protection of the nation-state include the aforementioned Albert Mohler, Tim
Keller, Russell Moore, Mark Dever, Thabiti Anyabwile, Ed Stetzer, Beth Moore, D.A. Carson, Matt Chandler, and David Platt.
While Russell Moore and Chandler both serve the ERLC (Moore as its director and Chandler as a research fellow), neither seem
aware that the nation-state is the world's strongest bulwark for religious liberty. Likewise, Platt, now retiring from the
International Mission Board as its president, signed an amicus brief on behalf of the IMB to get a mosque built in New Jersey
under the guise of religious liberty (he's since apologized), but seems blissfully unaware that it is the nation-state that protects individual liberty. Acting in tandem as a gaggle
of useful idiots pushing the agenda of globalists like Soros and Riady, these evangelical leaders are subversively undermining the very governmental
system that protects the religious liberties they hold so dear.
put, Soros and Riady - along with other globalist elites - seek to dismantle the nation-state as a form of governance. A nation
consists of three primary building blocks. These include sovereign borders, a common language, and a shared culture. All three
of these have been under attack in America from the political left for decades. It is only recently that those claiming
religious conservatism have become allies in the subversion. Without the nation-state, there is no government by the People
and for the People, which is tasked to defend the rights of individuals (including religious liberty) in the face of claims
for the common good. Many of these subversive leaders, like Russell Moore, are proud communitarians, championing utilitarianism over individual liberty. It is difficult to maintain that these evangelical leaders are ignorant
or somehow not culpable for their participation in the eradication of liberty when they are knowingly taking cash
from men like Soros and Riady.
This leads to the question as to why
these evangelical leaders are on the wrong side of these important Biblical and ethical issues, ranging from immigration to
racialism (other than the cash they receive). The partial answer to this question - in their own words - is what they perceive
demographically to be the "browning" of America. They suggest and perhaps are right, that the WASP (white Anglo-Saxon
Protestant) will soon be the minority in the United States. If the evangelical church should survive, and by some chance even
grow in coming years, its melanin count must rise. For that reason, the SBC has employed Affirmative Action in various of
its institutions - like the Kingdom Diversity Department at Southeastern Seminary - and in its appointment of denominational
leaders. Doctrinal fidelity has suffered greatly in the attempt to diversify the SBC, as heretics like Tony Evans and Sammy
Rodriguez have been scraped off the very bottom of the theological barrel to fill speaking spots at denominational events.
Their insistence that the church must change demographically in order to survive is not conspiratorial; it is overt and explicit.
The point in all the above is this; the rhetoric on immigration coming out of the Evangelical Intelligentsia is not shaped by a Biblical ethic or sound hermeneutical principles as it relates to immigration. The rhetoric on immigration
coming out of the Evangelical Intelligentsia is singularly focused on future survival, and not doctrinal commitment or the
work of Biblical ethics.
A BIBLICAL DEFENSE OF THE NATION STATE
Jeff Sessions cited Romans 13 earlier this year in his defense of sovereign borders and
was skewered by the Social Justice warriors on the right, many of whom were previously mentioned (above). However, Sessions
was right in his citation of Romans 13, and he used the verse properly in context. He would have been equally as justified
should he have cited 1 Peter 2. Both passages clearly explain our role in relation to the Civil Magistrate. The government
exists to punish the wicked and reward the good. It carries the sword (of punishment) for a reason. We are to submit to those
governing authorities so long as it does not require us to rebel against God.
every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that
exist have been instituted by God.2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed,
and those who resist will incur judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad.
subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, 14 or
to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15 For
this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. 16 Live
as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. 17 Honor
everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor (1 Peter 2:13-17).
God invented the nation-state and Citizenship. That's
right, it was God that invented the "nation-state" as the children of Israel came out of Egypt with a concept of
social construct not tied exclusively to kinship or geography. While it is true that the three building blocks of a nation
are (A) borders (B) culture and (C) language, the development of Hebrew identity as a nation came about in an interesting
vacuum in which they did not have a border or a geographical anchor. Historical anthropologists recognize that the Old Testament
Israelite nation may very well be the first people group in the world to form a "nation" not tied directly or exclusively
to kinship and geography, but instead was a social Covenant between Yahweh and his people. The idea of nation via compact
was born. Israel was Israel even outside the Promised Land, because Israel had a Covenant with Yahweh. Those obeying that
Covenant were seen as Israelites and those disobeying it were seen as Gentiles, and the concept of "Citizenship"
was born. This proto-Citizenship in the historical record is demonstrated in the clear delineation of how Israelites were
to be treated under Sinaitic civil codes given by God through Moses and how non-Israelites were to be treated. While aliens
and sojourners were to be treated well, Old Testament laws make it very clear that Citizens of Israel were unique and were
to be treated with different privileges than those not of Israel. This is seen even in the "Courtyard of the Gentiles"
constructed outside of the Temple. It took more to become an Israelite than to simply sojourn in the land. Citizenship requires
adherence to the Covenant, and formal admission into the body politic by a special rite.
God invented national sovereign borders. God himself gave the boundaries for the nation of
Israel in Genesis 15:18 and in Genesis 17:8. In this, God ensured that the nation-state of Israel had applied to it the first and most important aspect of its existence;
borders. Encroachments upon these boundaries were to be met with hostility. God commanded the Israelites to protect their
borders and boundaries, and they were given total and unilateral control of those boundaries. Rather than causing conflict
with neighboring nations, the borders clearly delineated property lines, defusing potential conflicts and better enabling
the Israelites to govern their affairs in accordance with their Covenant with Yahweh.
God invented the border wall. There is an entire book of the Bible devoted to the building
of a border wall. Nehemiah 1:1-7:3 explains God commanding the construction of a wall around Jerusalem to protect its strategic interests and prevent foreign
invasion. There is nothing unethical, unbiblical, or sinful, about protecting national sovereign borders. And by the way,
that border wall was well-armed.
When the United States lets in more than
one million immigrants a year to attain Citizenship and nearly that many more to work and attend our educational institutions,
it clearly does not exhibit institutionalized bigotry toward the foreigner. A nation that lets in two million foreigners a
year does not suffer from xenophobia. That is not systemic racism; it is a systemic kindness. That the United States has border
crossings where anyone can seek legal asylum through an open and forthright and generous asylum policy, it makes it all the
more criminal to instead choose to sneak across the border criminally. That parents aren't separated from their children by
death as America protects its sovereign borders by force (which is its right) is a testimony of America's shining generosity.
Any other nation in virtually any other part of the world would fire upon those invading their sovereign borders. Instead,
America applies the rule of law while feeding them, clothing them, providing them due process, and putting them in a detained
"time-out" until they can be returned to their home of origin.
BIBLE CALLS FOR BOMBS AND BULLETS
No, I'm not suggesting the
Bible mentions either bombs or bullets. The Bible mentions swords and spears. The General Equity
of those moral principles found in the Old Testament "positive commands" (meaning specific commands given
to specific people), however, undergird and support the appropriate use of violence to dispel invading forces from
sovereign nations. And the appropriate use of violence for invading forces into sovereign nations is, biblically, the application
of deadly weapons. In today's terms, these include bombs and bullets.
as Jerusalem's border wall was being built in Nehemiah's day by laborers working with one hand and carrying a spear in another,
it is appropriate to prepare and utilize weapons for national defense. Although some would argue that Jerusalem was not a
nation-state and therefore the comparison does not apply, it was - for all intents and purposes - a city-state, which is a
fair equivalent. It was the state. It had a boundary. The boundary needed a wall. And, the wall needed to be protected
by the use of deadly force. God did not only allow for this provision, but it was commanded by the prophet of God.
From that day on, half of my servants worked on construction, and half held the spears,
shields, bows, and coats of mail. And the leaders stood behind the whole house of Judah, who were building on the wall. Those
who carried burdens were loaded in such a way that each labored on the work with one hand and held his weapon with the other.
- Nehemiah 4:16-17
Some might take exception with the parallel between the invading hordes
of Nehemiah's day and those traveling to our southern border on the grounds that the former was an army and the latter includes
suckling babes and women. I take exception with their naivety. Artaxerxes, King of Persia, released the Jewish exiles to rebuild
Jerusalem not because it was being invaded by armies (Jerusalem had already been conquered by the Persians), but because it
was being settled by foreigners who had no rightful claim to the homes, orchards, vineyards, and infrastructure built by the
Jews. Nehemiah's invading hordes included the Samaritans, Ammonites, and Philistines, all of which were neighboring nations
to Jerusalem who felt entitled to the greener grass on the other side of where Jerusalem's border fence once stood. Surely
a comparison is fitting to those coming from Central America and Mexico across our borders, many of whom are (as our Social
Justice Warrior friends remind us) just "looking for better opportunities." Families surely would have
been in tow among these people-groups as well. Furthermore, it should be pointed out as a matter of fact that the so-called
"migrant caravan" approaching our border consists of more than three-quarters of adult men. There is zero doubt that the invading nations upon Nehemiah's Jerusalem contained considerably more women and infants than
the mob approaching Texas.
The story of Old Testament Israel and Judah
after the settling of the Hebrews in Canaan is little more than a history of its constant invasion by foreigners (redemptively,
it's about Christ, of course). The Book of Judges, in particular, focuses on the motif of foreign invasion. In each of these
cases, even when the invasion of their sovereign borders was punishment dispensed by God, the Israelites were commanded and
commended for picking up arms to annihilate their enemies. Gideon fought back the Midianites. Deborah fought Sisera of Canaan.
Samson fought the Philistines. At no point was Israel commanded to stand-down and surrender their land or property in the
name of misplaced kindness.
The United States of America is a Republic
and union of 50 states that collectively and federally have a sovereign border. Our nation is autonomous and autocratic, under
no binding international law. There is no ruler, power or authority over the United States other than the Lordship of Jesus
Christ, which he enjoys over all the Earth. Our nation has a right to sovereignly declare our boundaries and borders and to
protect them. Our nation-state must protect these boundaries and borders in order to protect the people therein and, even
more importantly, the liberty of said people. To argue that the United States doesn't have the right to defend our borders
or that it's somehow not right (in other words, immoral) to defend our borders, have taken away very little
from the divinely orchestrated and infallibly preserved history of Israel.
Here, Social Justice Warriors with a semester
or two of seminary may cry out with an obnoxious and ill-disguised arrogance, "But the United States is not Israel!"
No kidding, Sherlock. I'm a Reformed Christian, which means (in part) that I believe Israel to have been a typology of the
Christian Church, and not typological of a future geopolitical nation-state. Dispensationalists would likewise acknowledge
that the United States, very clearly, is not Israel. The principle at play here, however, is a term from the Westminster Confession
known as General Equity. As the divines explained it, which they did in particular as it functions regarding the Civil Code
of Israel, the General Equity is that which is "moral and universal" found within those positive commands. In other
words, although details change (like exchanging swords and spears for bombs and bullets), the moral principles undergirding
those details do not change.
Others might insist that the coming of the
New Covenant somehow changes the General Equity principle of protecting a nation's borders. This logic does not follow. The
installation of the New Covenant - as spoken of in Jeremiah 31 - brought a Covenant of Grace into time and space to redeem
believing mankind by grace through faith in Christ. The New Covenant does not change moral principles. Reformed believers
in particular, who should already believe that the Moral Law is immutable, must grasp this basic concept. It has always been
wrong to steal. And while everything you currently own may in some way be the consequence of "hook and crook" by
someone from whom you received it, it does not justify taking what belongs to another man currently. Those who seek to invade
a nation for the purpose of consuming its resources, contrary to their national law, are thieves. Biblical principles have
always upheld the use of force to protect property.
What the New Covenant
did not change is Biblical ethics. We (that is, Reformed believers) would strongly resist the notion that Jesus gave
new law in the Sermon on the Mount and his various discourses. We would argue that the newness of his commands are found in
the motivation for our following them, chiefly resting in his divine example. Loving your neighbor, for example, is a
citation of Old Testament law (Leviticus 19:9-18) and was not unique to the Sermon on the Mount. The defense of Israel's sovereign border was not antithetical to loving neighbor,
and neither is protecting America's sovereign border. In relationship to this debate, it should best be understood that proper
love between neighbors (which is a command given to individuals and not nation-states) is best preserved by the maintenance
of good fences. As the old adage among the ranch communities here in Montana goes, "Good fences make good neighbors."
BEING KIND TO THE ALIEN AND SOJOURNER
Of course, the various Scriptural admonitions of kindness to the alien are brought out frequently by opponents of
the rule of law, often by those with little to no understanding of Biblical law. Nonetheless, the frequency with which these
commands are repeated and the level of ignorance among those who often repeat them do not negate their surety and soundness
in our modern age. What are these commands, exactly?
We are commanded
not to exploit the sojourner traveling through our territories (Exodus 22:21, Leviticus 19:33; by the way, this would apply to using illegal aliens as a cheap labor force, as many proponents of illegal immigration do).
We should provide a level of charity for the sojourner and destitute (Leviticus 19:10). Even those who are not Citizens, if they are residents, should be treated with a degree of legal rights (Ezekiel 47:22). Various admonitions of this variety appear throughout the Old Testament. Simply put, God does not want anyone abused or
Does this then mean that invading caravans of illegal immigrants
must be treated as the "alien and sojourner"? Absolutely not. Invading forces are not lawful aliens and sojourners,
and should be treated as enemies rather than as neighbors.
Ezekiel 47:22 informs us of this common sense division.
You shall allot it as an inheritance
for yourselves and for the sojourners who reside among you and have had children among you. They shall be
to you as native-born children of Israel. With you they shall be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel.
Non-Citizen permanent residents in Israel (Gentiles who lived within its sovereign borders)
were not allowed to purchase land except through a temporary lease that would be ended or renewed at the Year of Jubilee every
seven years (Leviticus 19:34). This would ensure that Israelite Citizens maintained control over their land. However, apparently a large number of non-Citizens
had accrued by Ezekiel's day, and they had proven their faithfulness and obedience to Israel, despite not belonging to the
Covenant with Yahweh. While foreigners could not have land-rights, their children born within Israel's sovereign borders could
In Old Testament Israel, distinctions were made between
foreign invaders, temporary residents (sojourners), and permanent non-Citizen residents ("foreigners" or "aliens").
Foreign invaders were to be killed, travelers were to be treated hospitably, and resident non-Citizens were to be given property
rights. While leftist religious leaders may make a case from Ezekiel 47:22 that the 14th Amendment, which according to the Supreme Court (their judicial opinion and legal precedent is often rightly
challenged on this point) gives Citizenship to the children of immigrants and such is Biblical and ethical, it cannot be done
without making special note that Biblical law differentiates between kinds and types of aliens. The distinction between an
illegal alien (an invader), a temporary resident, and a legal permanent resident is unnecessarily blurred by the religious
left, who have proven to have very little regard for a thoughtful analysis of Biblical ethics.
APPLYING BIBLICAL ETHICS TO THE MIGRANT CARAVAN
Seven-thousand active-duty troops are heading to the Mexican border to protect American lives and property from approximately
seven-thousand foreign invaders (mostly adult men) who are intent on disobeying our laws and disrespecting our national sovereignty.
A careful analysis of Christian ethics indicates that it is the full prerogative of our military to use deadly force after
giving them every possible warning that a step across our border will be their first step into the world to come.

All the Signs Indicate It's Coming Soon: Is Martial Law Coming to the United States?
Tuesday, September 18, 2018 11:19
the Purpose of Martial Law in America?
When you read what's been
going on while you've been busy sleeping, it should send chills up your spine. This is not some happenstance possibility;
it's a diabolical plot to destroy the America that has existed for over 200 years.
When you think about martial law, you don't want to make the mistake of assuming that it will only come because of
some crisis. Martial law is seldom imposed on any civilian population to maintain law and order. That's what the government
wants you to believe, but that's only propaganda.
In reality its use is
almost always to suppress resistance and take control of a country. Martial law almost never ends as promised because absolute
power is addicting. You should think of martial law only as an act of aggression by despots planning to bring you a tyrannical
government with few if any rights.
In the US, the purpose for martial
law will NOT be to maintain law and order. It will be used to fulfill Obama's promise to "fundamentally transform America."
His vision involves an extremely ambitious coup which will definitely cost millions of lives.
The full martial law in America may involve a slow roll to keep the patriots from reacting. The implementation of
Agenda 21 will be the full goal. This is the worldwide UN document which the US has already signed and agreed to (without
the knowledge or approval of the majority of Americans) which calls for a dramatically reduced population.
The Primary Agenda
For Martial Law in America
The list of items below is my conviction of what the administration wants to achieve once martial
law is announced. This list is substantial and to achieve all of it, will require exquisite timing and the use of extreme
force. Of course, all of the items listed below won't immediately happen when martial law arrives, but this represents the
ultimate "wish list" of the globalist New World Order politicians (including the President) as well as the super
rich elitist bankers who are pulling the strings of power behind the curtain.
this agenda represents such an extreme transformation of America, you know that they will try to keep what they're doing a
secret from the masses-until they reach critical mass and rebellion becomes fruitless. Martial law in America, once begun,
will never end (unless the government is overthrown) because the goal is to radically change everything.
1. Controlling the Population. The first purpose of martial law is to place the
entire population under strict control. If we can be cowed into obeying and don't rebel, they will rapidly continue with their
more extreme measures.
A. All critical resources will be confiscated
and/or controlled. Taking full control over the distribution of the food supply, water, gasoline and electricity will force
most people to comply. Dependence upon the government will be encouraged. Being self reliant by hoarding or growing food will
be illegal, subject to confiscation. Fresh water will be drugged (even more than it is now) and it will also be tightely rationed.
B. A national ID (or surgically implanted bio-metric ID chip) will likely be mandatory. By
tracking the population, it will become more difficult to rebel or escape.
forms of money will be tightly regulated and controlled. Bank accounts and retirement funds will be stolen. Gold will be confiscated
(even as it was under President Franklin Roosevelt). Bartering will become illegal. Only state approved and recorded financial
transactions will be allowed. Anything done under the table will be harshly punishable with strict penalties.
D. Propaganda will be continually fed to the population about the reason for
the national control. The government will attempt to present itself as the country's savior from whatever manufactured crisis
they have authored. Believe almost nothing that they tell you. Virtually everything they say will be a calculated lie designed
to keep you hoping and subservient until resistance is no longer possible.
Ruthless Elimination of Resisters. The government's approval ratings are already at rock bottom. So a ruthless takeover
will either polarize resistance further or force people to keep their mouths closed in the mistaken belief that things will
get better. They will NOT get better.
A. Radical control over all
communication. Radio, television, the Internet and the press will all come under intense censorship or will be shut down
altogether. Only government-friendly propaganda media will be allowed. Cellphones will be regulated and cut off if used against
the state. An uninformed public that cannot effectively communicate will have great difficulty mounting a revolt.
B. Control over all transportation. Every form of transportation will be taken over
by and controlled by the state. Cars will be impounded if rebellion is suspected. Freedom of movement will be dramatically
C. Roving TSA and FEMA checkpoints. Everyone will be subject
to random roving checkpoints for search and seizure. There will be no citizen rights to be violated. Unlimited detention is
the threat that will keep most people compliant.
of a curfew. Restricting times and places of movement will make resistance and escape much more difficult and control much
easier for the government.
E. Harsh penalties will be enacted on
the spot. Local officials will be authorized to inflict punitive judgments, arrests and even summary executions without charges
or evidence based upon the slightest suspicion.
F. Terrorist events
will be set off to induce fear. The government will try to make themselves look like our savior as they supposedly stop these
horrific false flag events that they themselves have created. Fear through drones overhead, neighborhood spies, electronic
surveillance, and the presence of military police everywhere will make the world unnerving for citizens who haven't seen all
of this coming.
3. Disarming the Population. This is
probably the biggest hurdle they face in subduing the US population. Because there are more guns in America than people, any
attempt to disarm the population will likely result in tremendous bloodbath and maybe even a civil war.
A. Systematic confiscation of all weapons. This is likely to be rolled out slowly in different
areas with swat team raids targeting registered gun owners who haven't turned them in.
B. Gun owners, even those who turn them in, will likely be relocated. The government will no doubt see
all gun owners as potential resisters even if they turn in their weapons. So its likely they will be targeted quickly.
4. Relocation of the population. This will probably happen slowly due
to the considerable logistics issues involved. But all of this is part of Agenda 21 and it is a common method that Communist
despots have used many times in the past 100 years. Uprooted peoples cannot rebel as effectively.
A. Citizens relocated to larger cities where they can be controlled and put to work. This is
all part of Agenda 21 so this is all on record. Those in the country and the suburbs will be removed to the city in stages
(maybe first going through detention camps to weed out the problem people).
Citizens relocated to forced labor camps. Those who are considered "dead weight" will be taken to FEMA work camps.
These will probably include welfare recipients, healthy senior citizens (especially social security recipients) and anyone
who has any labor left that they can benefit the state.
C. Citizens relocated
to re-education camps. UN Agenda 21 can't be fulfilled without a dramatic reduction in the US population. Therefore, it seems
that few will actually be re-educated. With so many freedom loving people in the US, it will probably be far easier for them
to just send everyone with negative traits to the death camps.
death camps. Resisters, those unable or unwilling to work, the sick, the diseased, the inferior races, anyone who isn't worth
redeeming to the political views of those in power will be easier dealt with dead than alive. All that is necessary to reach
a death camp is to arouse suspicion of your disloyalty. There will be no trials. Countless millions are likely to receive
this one-way trip. Of course, to avoid riots, the true nature of these camps will be kept secret until the last possible moment.
5. Private property will be confiscated. Most of the land in the US has
already been designated for "no people zones." These maps have already been drawn up at the United Nations for this
purpose. Their goal is to have a much smaller population in the US.
of any kind will belong to the state (except for the elitist rich rulers). No independence will be allowed; people will
need to be completely dependent upon the government.
B. There will
be no need to own housing. Housing will be at the government's discretion. Private ownership will simply be terminated.
C. The globalist rich classes (sitting in governmental or corporate offices) will
own property and houses. They alone will have freedom of choice and of movement. They will be endlessly entertained (think:
The Hunger Games)
D. Independent businesses will be fazed out. Almost
all businesses will be nationalized or run by giant multi-national corporations. Almost all food will be created in large
efficient factories (similar to what it is now) using genetically modified crops, hormone injected animals, all filled with
slow acting poisons and behavior controlling drugs. This type of food production takes less space and is much more efficient,
but is deadly to consumers.
E. Crowded multi family dwelling structures
in the central cities will house the majority of workers. In small spaces, tightly monitored, they will be much easier
to work and control.
6. All lifestyles will be dramatically altered.
Transportation, communication and choices will all be greatly reduced. All workers will be vaccinated, fed GMOs, and drugged
into compliance without any choices. Life expectancy will be low.
Society will have no freedom. The Bill of Rights will become a foggy memory.
8. Children will become the property of the state. Taken at a young age, they will be raised
and indoctrinated in state school factories. They will be groomed for different stations depending upon the eugenics standards
set by the state.
The Signs Martial Law is Coming
Now I'm sure that some reading this may be thinking: "He's guessing. How can we know
that martial law will involve all of this and that it is coming to America anytime soon?"
I would love to be wrong with what this article predicts. But some future events seem pretty obvious
when you assemble all the supporting evidence. Viewed together, the odds that this will happen-and soon-become overwhelming.
Here are some of the major pieces of evidence I've found which convinces me that this is coming soon:
First of all, check out the UN Agenda 21 so that you can better understand
where this martial law agenda comes from and how it isn't going away anytime soon.
1. Arms build up within the government. I've read and seen article after article on this and the
buildup of arms within the US government has definitely accelerated at breakneck speed. You have to ask yourself why all of
these governmental agencies are arming themselves. What are they afraid of or planning to do with those armaments?
The DHS has purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammo, acquired 2700 armored personnel carriers,
has 100,000+ armed enforcement agents and has acquired thousands of military vehicles. Almost every department of the government
from the US Postal Service to the Social Security Admin to the national weather service, all have purchased weapons, immense
amounts of ammo and they all have their own swat teams. Why do they need this unless they expect to have a war on their hands?
2. Indefinite detention is now legal. The National Defense Authorization
Act was passed by Congress allowing the arrest and imprisonment of an American citizen on US soil without habeas corpus. And
we can now be held indefinitely without due process. This one act is usually the first thing that's taken away with martial
law-and it's already gone.
3. Americans can now be murdered "legally"
by this President.Drones have been used on the President's approval to kill Americans that were not convicted of
a crime or act of terrorism, and who were not even involved in such an act. These killings include a 14-year-old American
youth who was merely riding in a car. The memo that was used to justify these murders overseas has come out and it is blatantly
4. The DHS mission has now changed to one of
domestic terrorism. The Department of Homeland Security recently sponsored a study which proclaims their mission
is no longer foreign inspired terrorism. They're now focusing on domestic terrorism by Americans against the US. In other
words, they are now targeting law abiding Americans who are worried about their own government. The government views those
of us who feel this way as the "new terrorists" to be dealt with.
government also sees armed forces veterans as potential resisters as 90 percent of the armed services are not in alignment
with the agenda of our socialized government. So the armed forces and the vets must be neutralized.
5. Local police forces are being federalized (in violation of the 10th Amendment).
All sorts of used military equipment is now being transferred to these city departments. Through this process the DHS will
end up acquiring a national police force to enhance its already considerable national manpower to enforce martial law.
6. Police forces are now engaging in consistent swat attacks for minor offenses. Last
year alone it is estimated that 80,000 unannounced swat team invasions of homes occurred in the US. These involved breaking
down doors, concussion grenades and the deaths of many pets and innocent occupants including many children who have also been
injured or seriously traumatized.
7. Limited-edition martial law
lockdowns are happening throughout the US on a regular basis. The lockdown declared in Watertown area after
the Boston bombing was a sort of "beta test" of the martial law process. During this attack innocent occupants of
homes were forced onto the street with no opportunity to grab clothes, flashlights, cellphones or turn anything off inside
their houses. They were forcefully made to place their hands behind their heads as they were crowded together.
Simulated "terrorist war games" are now being held in many big cities as local
police, DHS, and National Guard units all swarm in with helicopters and overwhelming firepower designed to make average citizens
yield in fear the state.
8. The President is already acting like
a dictator. He now routinely disobeys and refuses to enforce laws he doesn't like. He rewrites laws on his own
that have been passed by Congress. He instructs the government to increase hardship on the American people for political reasons.
He uses the IRS and other agencies to target and punish his enemies. He flaunts and simply ignores all the investigations
into his law breaking.
He has opened the borders telling our agents to
stand down. Thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens (especially children) have been wooed in the Central American by the
CIA, and escorted to our borders by paid guides (paid by the CIA) who have been told they won't be asked to leave if they
can get here. Aliens who have all sorts of diseases which is creating a humanitarian crisis. He has also invited the UN in
to deal with this crisis (which is another act of giving away our sovereignty.
And of course he has now written his own laws saying that these illegals have more rights than US citizens. They
can get driver's licenses, travel freely within the country, get society security cards and aid if they have no money. He's
also rewriting US foreign policy towards countries like Cuba and Iran with virtually no oversight allowed of Congress. Even
though his policies were soundly defeated in the most recent election, he continues to rule on his own agenda no matter what
anyone says or thinks.
9. Many martial law orders are already
in place. This is an extremely compelling argument that we are on the edge of this declaration. It has already
been planned and it will be totally "legal" when it happens. Multitudes of redundant executive actions can quickly
be enforced and they will thoroughly lock down the country and put virtually everything under the President's control. And
I mean everything. Here are a few of these orders:
National Defense Resources Preparedness executive order. Signed in 2014 this order puts the US in a permanent state of martial
law. It can be activated whenever he chooses. It expands his authority allowing the government to take over and control every
resource. Martial law can now happen during peace time. The entire economy comes under the President's direction. Anything
produced can be taken by the government. All private companies can be seized and what they are allowed to produce will be

Secretary to oversee a coming civilian draft. In 2008 Obama stated "we need to construct a national civilian security
force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded" (as the military). Sounds like the SS under Hitler.
Dave Hodges says: "To fully understand the relationship that will exist between yourself
and the government, Google "Executive Order 13603″. The reasons behind the creation of Executive Order 13603 will
soon become readily apparent. You will retain ownership over nothing including food, water, guns, ammunition, your house,
your car and even yourself. If you survive, you will be conscripted to work in some capacity in a specialty and location not
of your choosing. The provisions for dealing with potential dissidents will go into motion under the NDAA which allows for
mass arrest and secret incarcerations without due process. There is one ironclad thing that you can count on, food and water
will be used to control the people following the collapse of the dollar."
The Four Stages of US Martial Law
four distinct stages of the coming martial law in America. This is what you should expect to see happen.
Stage One: Preparation for Martial Law. This stage is just about completed. This
is when the government gets organized and ready for a total lockdown, and where the state preps the people to accept the lockdown
as necessary and protective in nature.
Stage Two: A Crisis Event
to Trigger Martial Law. Some real or manufactured crisis event will likely be used to initiate the crackdown.
The more devastating the event, the more believable it will be to the majority of Americans who have no clue what's going
on within government. That will make it all the more believable.
a lot of people to die. The 911 attacks were extremely effective as a galvanizing crisis event because it seemed impossible
that the US would ever stoop to killing 3,000 of its own citizens just to motivate the country towards a willingness to let
government take over and protect us.
I would expect the next trigger event
to be even more devastating than 911. Dick Cheney, the former vice president who was definitely involved in the implementation
of the September 11 false flag attack has already gone on record saying such a terrorist attack in America is likely a guarantee.
He says that next time it will be much bigger than 911. He should know because he's one of the criminals who is still pushing
us all towards the New World Order.
Back in early September and October
of 2013 (when Obama wanted to go to war in Syria), there is strong evidence that he had several nuclear devices transferred
to South Carolina. The intention seems to have been that they were going to detonate it within a ship in the harbor at Charleston
and blame it on those in the Middle East. Senator Lindsey Graham (a Republican) spoke publicly, fear mongering over the possibility
of such an event if we didn't launch misses against Syria. Apparently, cooler headed generals disobeyed orders and set off
the bomb 200 miles out at sea (for which Obama fired them).
stated publicly that a terrorist might set off a dirty bomb in New York City. These kinds of events, especially when alluded
to in advance, will definitely be false flag attacks designed as a triggering event for martial law.
As opposition to Obama has increased, and the government's strategy has also morphed. Domestic terrorists
are now the new targeted group. So the ideal trigger could easily be blamed on some patriots, constitution lovers, Christians
or anyone from the right. This would give the government a ready excuse to go after all such groups.
The roll out of martial law will likely follow the government's normal false flag script. During
every false flag event of the last 14 years, there was a training exercise going on in the same area at the same time designed
for the exact same kind of terrorist attack that amazingly happened right then. This is true of 911, the Sandy Hook shootings,
the Boston Bombing, and even the subway attack in London several years ago. This is a hallmark of attacks that have been dramatically
staged so that all the key people like crisis actors, liberal media reporters, and onsite government workers are all prepared
to talk live to CNN while it is happening.
The Collapse of the
Dollar as a Trigger
Another scenario that could easily be instituted
either by design or when it happens naturally, is the death of the dollar. Here is a compelling argument on this same subject
from Dave Hodges: "What Does a Currency Collapse Look Like?
can accurately be stated that a lot has been written and rehearsed by the federal government on the topic of the effects of
a currency collapse and its subsequent impact on society. NORTHCOM, DHS and FEMA as well as other federal entities have practiced
for this eventuality. In each and every scenario, the facts remain the same, human beings and society follows a very predictable
pattern of decline when the currency of the day collapses. And normally, the currency collapse comes without any warning to
the general public.
"When George Soros recently pulled his money
from the S&P 500 and from Bank of America, Citibank and JP Morgan, all Americans should have sat up and taken notice.
Generally, when the currency collapses, a stock market crash is right on its heels. Because of the repeal of Glass-Steagall,
a banking meltdown will immediately occur following the collapse of the stock market because since Clinton's presidency, banks
are now allowed to loan money for investment in the stock market and for down payments for homes. It was irresponsible of
Congress to repeal Glass-Steagall, because it made surviving an economic Armageddon a near impossibility just as it did during
the 1929 crash.
"In a currency collapse, your life savings will be
wiped out. From this point on, the effect cascades like a roaring tsunami racing across the open ocean.
"Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy demonstrated that gas stations will be bone dry within two days
following a complete collapse. Subsequently, commerce will not move. If you are on vacation, you may not make it home. On
the second day following a currency collapse, being on the road will be a risky endeavor because of other desperate motorists
who will lie in wait to rob other motorists of essential supplies and resources.
"With no available fuel, the grocery and drug stores will be empty within one to three days. There will be no
food to be had except for that which is decaying in your refrigerator and that in which you can beg, borrow and steal from
your neighbors who will also be begging, borrowing and stealing. from your other neighbors. If you have an adequate food and
water supply, you better have an adequate gun and ammo supply in order to defend your assets. And when will you sleep? The
protection of your critical assets is a 24/7 proposition. Therefore, having a cooperative survival plan is critical.
"Without gas, people will stop going to work. Corporations will disappear overnight.
Hurricane Katrina showed America that the police cannot be expected to stay on the job more than 48-72 hours as they will
be home protecting their families and foraging for food and water like everyone else. The emergence of former police, now
operating as gangs, will become common in an effort to secure the products which will ensure survival. Therefore, when your
home is under attack, there will be nobody to call. Everyone will be on their own.
"The elderly and the chronically ill will be the first to die. Too old to defend their assets, the elderly will
find themselves overpowered as they will make easy preys of opportunity for the roving gangs. The chronically ill will have
no way to procure their medication and even if they survive the looting rampage which will follow a currency collapse, these
poor souls will perish without access to their life-sustaining prescriptions.
money in your wallet will be useless. Cell phones will not work. Heating and air conditioning will not work either and depending
on the time of year, the environment could prove deadly to untold numbers of people.
"Water treatment plants will stop operating for the same reasons that you will not be able to find a cop during
this crisis; nobody will be manning the water treatment plants. Toilets will back up and diseases will spread like wildfire.
Cholera will become the leading cause of death even surpassing homicide. Something as simple as toilet paper will become a
prized commodity. There will be no trash pickup and more disease will result due to the increased rodent population.
"Clean drinking water and hunger will become the dominant motivator in society. Roving
bands of looters, turned murderers, will sweep through neighborhoods seeking to obtain these critical elements of survival.
Young women will sell themselves for a can of food for their children. Society will see the widespread loss of human dignity
"Infanticide and euthanasia of the weak will become
common events because there will be decided efforts to reduce the amount of mouths to feed. There will be the stark realization
that the lights are not coming back on and the ensuing sense of hopelessness will lead to murder-suicides within families
and simple incidences of suicide will be used as a means to escape the horrendous circumstances...
"During this time, Americans will truly discover if there really are FEMA camps and what they
will be used for. If people want to eat, they will be enticed to go where food is promised. Although you can count on the
above mentioned events transpiring in the event of a currency collapse..." we know that the government will take full
advantage of such a crisis to control and enslave the population.
are currently 70 million Americans who will starve if the government stops sending them checks of welfare or some other benefit.
It will be VERY easy for the government to tighten the noose around people's necks when they realize that they are going to
be cut off if they don't obey.
Stage Three: The Roll Out of Martial
If there is a single smaller trigger, the federal response
will likely be far more focused upon shutting down the area where the attack took place. All sorts of innocent people will
be arrested and in some areas herded into FEMA detainment centers. Like 911 there will likely be other attacks in other parts
of the US which are caught by our ever watchful governmental agents. This will cause the crack down to spread and eventually
lead to the declaration of martial law. But nationwide martial law can quickly happen if the dollar dies, and the feds are
already orchestrating that.
How all of this will happen I'm sure will
depend upon what the triggering event is, how successful it is, and how the public is responding. If the public reacts negatively,
it might end up being a flop, pushing off the timetable to a new trigger down the road.
If both the trigger and the beginning stages of the roll out are successful, look for there to be successive crackdowns,
tightening the noose of the freedom of all citizens. Like with 911 where airline travel was shut down, they will probably
shut down the Internet and leave only broadcast media so that people will be stuck with the mainstream media. All true media
will be shut out and will be unreachable.
There will likely be sudden
shortages of food and water. If people have to depend upon the government for their basic necessities, they won't have a lot
of time to consider "conspiracy theories."
If weapons haven't
already been confiscated, this will likely be the beginning of that. Expect to hear drones in the sky, helicopters flying
overhead, police sirens all night. Known patriots will be targeted first and taken.
Stage Four: The Total Destruction of the Existing United States.
Without any negative press and the alternative news sites to tell the truth, I would expect that all those who are
seen as trouble makers will be quickly imprisoned. When the Internet is finally turned back on, I would suspect that it will
be a more censored version, with the offending websites culled from Google and blacked out.
The transition between the beginning stages of martial law and the move towards their real agenda, which will really
start to heat up when they begin to relocate thousands of US citizens will be quite tricky I think. Obama and his government
have a track record for being inept. Like with Obamacare, they have a tendency to bite off more than they can chew, and will
probably want to transform America, moving from crisis to crisis. Trying to control the tiger by stomping onto his tail will
be difficult like it will be if 150 million people are truly pissed off at their government.
But I wouldn't think that anything is off the table with these people. Genocide on an unprecedented scale isn't unthinkable
to the globalists. In fact, I think they would relish the chance to unleash it. If they feel like they are losing their grip,
they might try the wholesale slaughter of the American people while they have weapons superiority (at least in the beginning).
No scenario should be ruled out with this group of amateur despots.
they succeed in maintaining control over the tiger, woe to America. Even if almost no one fights back, it is highly unlikely
that Agenda 21 will be implemented without millions of Americans ending up dead.
Rap Sheet: ***567** Acts of Media-Approved Violence and Harassment Against Trump Supporters
When not calling Trump supporters "Nazis" as a means to dehumanize us, the establishment media like to whine about the lack of civility in American politics,
even as they cover up, ignore, downplay, or straight-up approve of the wave of violence and public harassment we are seeing
against supporters of President Trump.
It is open season on Trump
supporters, and the media is only fomenting, encouraging, excusing, and hoping for more... The media are now openly calling
Trump supporters "Nazis" and are blaming Trump for a mass murder he had nothing to do with. This, of course, is a form of harassment because it incites and
justifies mob violence.
Here is the list, so far, and remember that if
any one of these things happened to a Democrat, the media would use the story to blot out the sun for weeks.
Remember how crazy the media went over a nobody rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask, a GOP staffer who criticized Obama's daughters? And yet, hundreds of Trump supporters are harassed and brutalized and the media only
dutifully report them, if at all. That is because the media are desperate to normalize and justify violence and harassment
against Trump and his supporters.
And while the media openly encourage
this violence against us, the media also campaign to disarm us, to take away our Second Amendment right to defend ourselves.
This list will be updated as needed. Back-filling it will be an ongoing project...
Here is a video channel dedicated to documenting the dozens and dozens of assaults against Trump supporters.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any updates or anything you think deserves to be
added to this list. Also, if you see errors - duplicate postings or events misinterpreted as attacks on Trump supporters,
please let us know. Unlike the establishment media's reporting, we want this list to be comprehensive and factual.

No time for silence
By Steve Gruber
It is time to speak up and be heard. It is time to stand up
for maybe the most celebrated and revered of all American principles and traditions. This is no time for silence.
Let me be perfectly clear: I am not an Alex Jones fan. His brand of conspiracy
insanity isn't my cup of tea, but nevertheless, he should be allowed to say such psychologically untethered things if he is
so inclined. There is nothing more American than saying foolish, nonsensical, and even offensive and idiotic things
for all to hear. It's called the First Amendment to the Constitution.
The ability to say what you think, no matter who may take offense, is one of the basic and founding principles of
our republic. The public square should not be off limits to offensive people just because the public square is
now electronic and controlled by massive private companies.
does not guarantee your right or mine never to be offended. In fact it assures quite the opposite.
So when Twitter bans Jones and his Infowars show permanently, I take offense. It
offends my sense of fair play when people are silenced because other people say they are offended by what they hear.
You're offended? So what?
best way to decide what you believe and what defines you is to hear and evaluate as many points of view as possible. Silencing
public debate and controlling what people are allowed to see, hear, and read is the road to totalitarianism. When
you are fed a sanitized and homogenized diet of thoughts and ideas, you are becoming programmed to think the way they intend.
It doesn't matter if those controlling the message are big government or big business,
and some days it's hard to tell the difference.
Free flowing conversations
lead to free minds and free people. Censoring what people are allowed to read, watch, or say leads to the destruction
of liberty. Denying our neighbors the right to be heard because it offends us will only lead to more people being
It may start, innocently enough, as protecting kids from hate
speech (it's always about the kids, you know), but as it gathers steam, that train will run right past piles of burning books,
new government TV stations, re-education camps, and eventually the detention centers for the heretofore unenlightened.
The cure for offensive speech is more speech, not less.
How can you know what you believe if you are exposed to only one point of view? The only way to get inoculated
against stupidity is to be exposed to it. I am not an Alex Jones fan because I have heard him talk and read what
he writes. Otherwise, I might be susceptible to that brand of conspiracy theories.
I believe that it is imperative for the health of the nation to let everyone be heard no matter how infantile or
absurd he may be. Again, this is why there is a First Amendment to begin with.
With giant corporations controlling ever more real estate in the digital space, where a vast majority of the conversations
take place these days, we must look seriously at how we defend freedom with the same passion as our founders.
The inoculation for ignorance is free speech. So when people I don't necessarily
agree with like Alex Jones are shut down, I don't cheer. No, I fight for their right to be heard. We
need a lot more of that these days than ever before.
The future of America
depends on it.
IRANIAN REVEALS PLANS TO HIT 112 US MILITARY BASES WITH SUICIDE BOMBERS
Category: World News
Saturday, 11 August 2018 00:55
War is a painful disaster, even if it is for national, defensive or religious reasons. Many countries try to avoid
it as much as it can to save its people from its tragic consequences and preserve their homes from devastation and destruction,
along with spectre of thousands of dead, wounded, disabled and homeless.
However, Ali Reza Farqani, Iranian editor-in-chief of Arman newspaper, says his country "needs a foreign war,"
threatening Washington that pro-Iranian suicide bombers would hit US bases in 112 countries in any possible war.
The author repeated a slogan by the founder of the Iranian regime, Ayatollah Khomeini
in the 1980s, when he said that "war is a blessing" in reference to the war between Iraq and Iran, which ended after
Tehran was forced to accept the UN resolution calling for a cease-fire between the two countries.
At that time, Khomeini said that he had to submit to the resolution saying: "I drink the cup of poison."
After US President Donald Trump ordered US sanctions against Iran to take effect last
Tuesday, which will be further escalated to a more severe level on November 4, Ali Reza Farqani, an Iranian media editor and
editor-in-chief ‘Arman Press', has written an article in which he expressed "the readiness of the Iranians
to fight the war against the United States of America."
The Washington Post reported
at the end of last April that the Pentagon is working on a plan to counter Iran's expansion and destabilizing the Middle East
through Tehran's support for armed groups in the region.
"The US military will not
face Iran directly, but it will use indirect means to limit its expansion in Syria and Iraq," General Joseph Leonard
Votel, who heads the US Central Command, was quoted as saying.
Ready for war against the US
are ready to wage a major war against the United States," Farqani said in his article. The writer described
the war as "jihadist security."
The editor-in-chief of Arman Press believes
that the call for war by Iran would "change the perception of the military and American and Israeli politicians toward
the Iranians, and help to stop the talk about the military option."
The author attempted
to interpret and interpret Iran's call for foreign war as being based on the origin of jihad, claiming that such a war would
be between two intellectual models. The first represented theism and the second was humanism.
After describing the details of the differences between the two trends, the hardline Iranian media person issued threats
against American officials and warned them: "You have to understand that the next war will ensure the survival
of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and eliminate America completely and it will be a war of solidarity for all Iranian Muslims."
"The Iranian dictionary does not include the word dictionary ‘defeat'," he
The writer then tried to justify his call for war with America by resorting to
the interpretation of Quranic verses on his own, describing the Iranian side as the holy party in this war and the other side
in the Holy Land, claiming that Iran is the "front of truth" in such a war.
a lengthy comparison between the Iranian and American soldier's preferences and the preference of the Iranian soldier for
the other soldiers of the Muslim countries, he addressed the Americans, threatening them with suicide operations in different
countries, saying: "America should know that if it entered into a war with Iran, the Hezbollah youth will determine
the area of the battlefield far from Iran's borders and within a period of less than 48 hours will launch suicide attacks.
Threat to rape Obama's daughter
Ali Reza Farqani was one of the former prime ministers of the government of former President
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and former ruler of Kish Island in the Gulf, where he left office after disagreements with Ahmadinejad's
government. He is a member of the hardline Islamic movement in Iran and had threatened in his blog to rape the daughter
of former US President Obama if Syria was attacked by the United States.
"weak points", which he considered an easy prey for all the "peoples of the world", were to threaten to
kidnap a member of the family of every minister, ambassador and military commander around the world within one day, he said.
Ali Reza Farqani is a member of the "Ammarioun" headquarters of the radical Iranian
pro-Iranian leader and reflects the views of the most extreme spectra in Iran.
Hal Turner Commentary
Wow! How twisted must that man's mind be, that he would not only THINK such
things, but dare to actually utter them in public?
When I first found
out about this, the first thought that hit me was "This is what Israel has to deal with every single day."
I FINALLY understood how utterly impossible it is for the Israelis to get along in peace with such people.
Guys like Ali Reza Fargani cannot be reasoned with. They cannot be negotiated with.
The ONLY way to deal with such people is to utterly defeat them. Total, absolute, merciless, defeat. Anything
short of that, the trouble will return because the hatred is so deep, so embedded, it cannot be purged.
Interestingly, while I knew the US had military bases in many places, I did not know we have them
in 112 countries. I am endeavoring to clear up that item because it is extremely relevant to us here in the USA.
If we have 112 bases (counting the ones here in the US) then his threat applies to us . . . HERE. . . inside America. I will
update this commentary if and when I get that answer.
In the meantime,
it is important for my fellow Americans to understand clearly that as of November 4, the US is re-imposing sanctions on sales
of Iranian Oil. The US will not do business with any country that continues to buy Iranian Oil.
Since our economy is still the single most important economy in the world, companies worldwide
will have a stark choice to make: Do business in the US, or throw that all away so as to do business with Iran. My
gut tells me the Iranians lose that equation, big time.
The Iranians know
it too. Which is why they are so ardently screaming about the re-imposition of sanctions, and making violent threats
every other day or so.
I am 56 years old and a former National Security
Intelligence Asset for the FBI Joint Terrorism Task force (JTTF). In my years working with the FBI, I had occasion to
meet and develop friendships with people in the Intelligence Community, civilian and military, both here in the US and in
several countries around the world. I maintain many of those friendships to this very day.
During those years, I learned that when someone tells you they are going to hurt you ---- believe
them. Take it at face value. To do anything less is suicide.
So, my fellow Americans, the man quoted above has just told us that he and his countrymen intend to hurt us; with
suicide bombers. I take that at face value. So should all of you.
only in mid-August. November 4 - the date oil sanctions will re-commence -- is still over two months away. Take
that two months to begin preparing for emergencies. It can't hurt to prepare. It is better to have some essential
emergency preparations -- and NOT NEED them, than it is to need them and NOT HAVE THEM.
Below is a list of suggested items. You may already have some. Others, you may need; or never thought
about before. Please take the next two months to get yourself up-to-speed on Emergency Preps.
Not everyone has huge sums of money laying around that they can just go out and splurge
on all this stuff. But some of it is cheap, and essential. So get what you can get without breaking your bank.
If fanatics like the man quotes above are already preparing themselves to be suicide bombers
against America, then God only know what other fanatics are planning. We need to be prepared.
Whether you live in an
earthquake area, a flood zone, Tornado Alley or in a major city subject to Terrorist attacks, I earnestly hope my fellow Americans
have heeded my long-offered advice to prepare themselves.
the sudden burst of trouble with Iran, WAR PREPS are a smart idea too.
Modern warfare is no longer restricted to far-off battlefields. Sleeper cells will attack our Electrical Grid,
our public water supplies, key highway bridges to halt the flow of food and commerce, key railroad bridges, to halt the flow
of food and war-fighting supplies, Oil and gas pipelines to shut down our ability to keep warm or to travel or deliver supplies.
They will release chemical and biological weapons to take as many of us down with them
as they can.
You and your family absolutely MUST prepare.
You MUST have:
An Emergency Food Supply
An Emergency Water Supply
Filter Masks to protect from inhaling radiation particles or Chemical/Biological Weapons
Swimmer masks or waterproof goggles to protect our eyes from Nuclear/Chemical/Biological
A source of Emergency Electrical power:
A generator, or an INVERTER to convert DC car batteries to AC electric, or Solar panels with batteries and an INVERTER.
Spare Fuel: For your car(s), Trucks, Emergency Generator fuel supply etc.
CASH MONEY ON HAND -- Puerto Rico got hit by a hurricane and over
a month later, many banks and ATM's were still closed and offline. Credit cards didn't work. Debit Cards didn't work.
What few stores were open wouldn't accept checks. CASH WAS KING. Such will be the case nationwide in the
USA if we get hit here by Iranian terror cell attacks. No cash? No nothing for you.
Have some cash on-hand. Not to pay bills, but to rely upon so you can survive.
Emergency HEAT. We are still in Summer; there's cold weather ahead.
You should have at least ONE source of Emergency heat. Perhaps a Kerosene Heater with spare fuel? SOMETHING is
better than nothing. If war hits here . . . and attacks here in the USA are ___ LIKELY ____ you'd better have a way
to keep warm if all the electric is out and if gas/oil pipelines are sabotaged stalling your furnace.
Emergency Communications: Again I refer to Puerto Rico as a prime example
of how screwed-up things get when disaster strikes. People on that island couldn't get cellular or wi-fi, had no landline
phones and no electric; thus could not communicate with their loved ones. Don't be like them.
- Get yourself a CB radio ($29) and antenna for each car, and a CB radio and antenna for
your house. CB does not require a license, is good for several miles and can keep you in touch with your loved
ones during a disaster.
- Better yet, get yourself Family-Radio-Service (FRS) walkie
talkies. ($15 ea.) They're only two watts, and the range is very limited (1/2 mile at most) but it will keep you
in touch with family members nearby.
Make certain you have spare
medicine to live on. Some folks take specific medicines without which they cannot live. For instance,
one member of my family had a Thyroid removed due to cancer. That person MUST take a Thyroid replacement drug once a
day. Without that medicine, my family member will die by day five of no medicine. Have a month or longer
supply of such vital medicines on-hand.
Here's the worst part:
YOU MUST KEEP YOUR PREPS SECRET
The worst part of this situation is that you cannot tell ANYONE that you have made preparations. The overwhelming
majority of people simply will not take _any_ steps to prepare. And when disaster strikes, they will come knocking on
YOUR door, begging for help.
Many of you will find yourselves in a situation
where people you've known for years, come begging you for food and you'll face a stark choice: Feed THEM, or feed YOURSELF.
They had a chance to prep but didn't. They made that choice, they have to live (or die) from it. Only the strong
survive. The weak and weak-minded do not.
If you make the mistake
of bragging or telling anyone that you're making preparations, they'll stick that in the back of their minds and do nothing,
figuring they can come to YOU when the SHTF. And if you make yet another mistake of actually giving any of them food,
THEY WILL TELL OTHERS! You'll quickly find yourself totally swamped by desperate, hungry, people.
HAVE FIREARMS and AMMUNITION You should have a firearm to
protect yourself and your family. When the ignorant masses start getting hungry, first they'll _ask_ for food; then they'll
come to TAKE IT. You had better be ready to fend-off these predators.
Below are SOURCES via AMAZON for the items I have mentioned
above. I am NOT the Seller of any of these items. In the interest of full disclosure, I WILL earn a $1 or $2 Commission
if you buy things via my web site, but the price you pay is the same whether you buy it through my site, or directly thru
AMAZON. My Commission comes out of the seller profit, so your price is not affected. Whether you buy through my
site or somewhere else, just make sure you have these preps!
is of the essence. If hostilities commence, things will get incredibly bad, incredibly fast. There won't be any
time to cover your ass once everyone in the country is trying to cover theirs. Store shelves will be emptied in hours.
Gas stations will be empty too (just like we all saw when Hurricane Irma hit Florida, and "the masses" waited until
one day before its arrival to even THINK of getting fuel. Thousands of them found empty gas stations. Don't
be like them.
If a hostile entity (like Iran or Terrorists) were to release a Biological Weapon anywhere in the US, certain
areas of our country (perhaps entire cities) would IMMEDIATELY be under QUARANTINE. No one in. No one out.
All businesses and transportation would shut down.
In order for _any_ Quarantine to be lifted, authorities must go through at least one 21 day period
without any NEW infections. Most times, they actually need TWO 21-day periods. That's 42 days.
Do YOU have enough food at home to last 42 days?
If not, you're screwed. Because there won't be any way to get food delivered (all businesses are closed) and
you won't be allowed out to try to BUY anything. So what then?
Anyone who thinks the government will somehow help them is an idiot.
better think long and hard about getting yourself Emergency food, because if Iran sees it's losing a war with us, they
WILL release bio-weapons here in the US, and a lot of us WILL be Quarantined. Will you or your family be among those
PREPARE NOW OR DIE
No one can survive a direct impact of a nuclear bomb. But those close to an impact
zone CAN survive; and so can those farther away . . . . IF you prepare to deal with the issues created by an attack.
In a nuclear attack, the immediate blast zone is totally lost. Vaporized.
Nothing survives. Within 3 miles of the blast zone, windows are instantly shattered by the force of the blast
- both the wind and the sound wave.
Car bombs and Improvised Explosive
Devices (IED's) are the weapons of choice of terrorists. Localized blast waves from car bombs and IED's definitely shatter
nearby windows too. When those windows shatter, they hurl shards of razor sharp glass everywhere in your house or apartment.
PLASTIC WINDOW COATING
can minimize the danger of injury to yourself and your family from shattering glass by installing plastic coating on the INSIDE
of your windows. This coating acts to hold-together the shards of glass which would otherwise be JAGGED, RAZOR-LIKE,
PROJECTILES cutting the heck out of anything in their path.
makes your home windows more like a car windshield as opposed to the side window in a car: A Windshield may crack, but the
glass is held together by plastic. Side windows of a car shatter all over the place.
Here are some sources of Plastic window coatings you can apply to your windows at home, yourself:
If a nuke detonates,
or a Bio weapon is released there will be NO FOOD deliveries, possibly for weeks, to the affected area. Government may not
even be able to bring food in because of debris blocking roads, collapsed bridges and overpasses, or active bio-weapon agents
in the air.
You need to have Emergency Food Supplies in your possession
or you will literally starve to death.

These pills are to be taken, one a day, only during ACTIVE RADIATION EXPOSURE. If you
take these pills when there is no radiation, your Thyroid gland in your neck will PERMANENTLY SWELL. In some people,
it would look like a tumor in their neck. So DON'T Take these pills unless and until you know for certain that
there is a radiation issue in your area.
To filter-out particles of radiation, bio-weapons or other contaminants.
ABOUT THE MASKS ABOVE: It is important that you have one WITH YOU or within immediate
reach at all times. For instance, having masks at home while you're at work is useless if an attack takes place while
you're at work. You need to have one in your desk or locker at work. You should also have one in your car in case
an attack takes place while you're traveling. I have one for EACH of my family members both at home and in my family
car, so if we're all together on an outing, and something takes place, we all have masks in the car. Your finances will
dictate how many masks you get, but these are things to really think about as you prep.</p>

eyes and when we BLINK, the infection gets pushed into our tear ducts and we're infected!!!!! So, having waterproof
goggles is essential for protection.
GRAVITY WATER FILTERS
Once your supply of stored water runs out, you're going to need more water, but NONE may be available via Municipal
Water Supplies or stores. At that point, you will have to get water from nearby Lakes, Streams or Rivers, and that absolutely
requires FILTERING before being consumed. Here are some Gravity-fed water filters you can resort to when your emergency
supplies run out:
Generators - To keep the refrigerator cold a couple hours a day, charge your devices,
and have a couple lights in the house.
Solar Power- Will keep some small
devices charged, and one light on in the house
Inverters- VERY LIMITED
These turn your car battery in 120 volts AC. Wattage
is important, a typical refrigerator takes 1100 watts! Bear that in mind as you shop. . .
The are empty cans to store
spare fuel for your Generator, car, truck, etc.
These need fuel to operate; usually Kerosene
Kerosene Storage for Heat
These empty containers
to store Kerosene fuel are colored blue to distinguish Kerosene from Gasoline.
CB Radio for cars or home
Mobile Antennas (One needed per car)
BASE STATION ANTENNAS - For home or Apt.
- VERY LIMITED RANGE (Despite Ad Claims; usually less than 1 mile)
and AMMO (MULTIPLE SUPPLIERS)

The Meaning of Independence Day
ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and
leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity
forget that ye were our countrymen."
The Meaning of Independence Day
The Fourth of July is a holiday that most Americans celebrate for various reasons.
The festivity may involve family, friends or public gatherings. Popular culture would have you believe that the gala
is a birthday party for the country. Flags wave, bands march and bystanders cheer. The parades are pageants, visible
spectacles for all to applaud and enjoy. After the confetti blows away, what is the meaning of the day? Commemoration
of the Declaration of Independence should be the primary reason for the remembrance. Other than historically conscious traditionalists that understand
the nature of the Republic, few perceive the real purpose of the founding of America.
Looking to the John Adams' famous letter of July 3, 1776, to his wife Abigail will put the celebration into perspective. (exact text from
his letter with his original spellings)
Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be
celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance
by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns,
Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will
think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us
to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing
Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction,
even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not." (The Book of Abigail and John: Selected Letters of the
Adams Family, 1762-1784, Harvard University Press, 1975, 142).
of the remembrance is to memorialize the Declaration of Independence. But the meaning of the word and certainly the
idea of independence is routinely ignored and often purged from the gala. A party for the sake of enjoyment snubs the
solemn legacy of the founders. Yet, those who rally their attention on patriotic fervor, make an even more profound
The basic distinction between establishing
independence, which is a prime essential to live out liberty and nationalistic allegiance, risks a fundamental disconnect
in the purpose of a consensual union. The American Revolution was fought against a monarchy that prohibited basic rights
of all Englishmen. The original thirteen colonies sought to become independent states, no longer under the boot of George
III and the British Crown. The goal for the rebellion was to gain self-government, for each colony and to establish
a state sovereignty for each commonwealth. The union that evolved and formed after the Paris Peace Treaty of 1783, into the country known as the United States was a process separate from the crucial principle established in that accord.
Note the following from this treaty in Article 1:
Brittanic Majesty acknowledges the said United States, viz., New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence
Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia,
to be free sovereign and independent states, that he treats with them as such, and for himself, his heirs, and successors,
relinquishes all claims to the government, propriety, and territorial rights of the same and every part thereof."
The use of plural for states acknowledges that the fundamental right of sovereignty resides
within each former colony. The meaning of aligning and forming a federal union of independent states is at the heart
of the national celebration. Yet, this fact of history is lost to the political culture because it serves the interests
of the internal despots that scrambled to replace the British King with their own form of domestic tyranny.
The miserable failure of the American experiment to be faithful
to the principles of independence for the sake of national uniformity is self-evident. Only a charlatan would support
the theft of autonomy for the aggrandizement of centralization. Only a scoundrel would seek to preserve and compel a
failed marriage at the cost of inherent independence. And only a Judas traitor to the 1776 Revolution, conspire to impose
their treason upon a free people.
betrayal by a federal government is worse than belief in a false cause. The coercion and power of absolutism has replaced
the promise and hope of independence. So what will you celebrate on this day of observance, our true heritage or an
odious despotism that pretends to be American?
the will and courage of our forbearers. The Concord Hymn by Ralph Waldo Emerson suggests a heritage worthy of homage.
By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.
The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.
On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set today a votive
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.
Spirit that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.
Celebrate that which deserves to be venerated, shun that which deforms our indispensable
values and noble aspirations. The Fourth of July is not a government anniversary. It is a time to remember that
independence is the spirit and the soul of the nation. The fireworks are for as John Adams rightly affirms - a Day of
Deliverance. That liberation from captivity is what we honor and so often forget. If you are incapable of understanding
the distinction between the goal of liberty and the reality of tyranny, you should study your heritage on this solemn day.
You will find a wealth of information on the
Fourth of July Celebrations Database. Display the original Betsy Ross flag and beware of the reasons that cause the fifty star forgery to be disgraced.
The Meaning of Independence Day has not changed. Now, citizens who are oblivious to the national crisis just yearn for
the intoxication of a never-ending party. What kind of an American are you, an original patriot or a government lackey?
This day is yours if you know who you are and what you should be . . .

Ryan Bundy's Opening Statement
Is Something Every Red-Blooded American Should Hear
Tim Brown - November 24, 2017
Sometimes, in the process of covering so many things and in the attempt
to provide as much information and commentary as possible, we simply are not able to provide all that we wish to do so to
However, that does not mean other stories and commentary are
not important. In fact, many things coming out of alternatives media today are vitally important for those coming off
the government-controlled media.
One of those items that didn't hit the
mainstream media, and sadly didn't hit much of the alternative media, was the opening statement of Cliven Bundy's son, Ryan,
as the trial of the century began nearly two weeks ago.
In light of that,
I've been meaning to post his opening statement because it is certainly on that Americans should familiarize themselves with
and quite possibly, should a fair history book be written, may go down in a Patrick Henry-esque fashion.
So, without further ado, here's Ryan Bundy's opening statement (H/T Gary Hunt)that was delivered to the jury in the Bundy Ranch trials on November 15, 2017. Read and remember.
Thanks to the jurors for
being here. I told you a little about myself at voir dire, but I'd like to introduce myself a little more, and tell you about
my heritage and how that affects my case. (Projects a picture of his family - AND leaves it up throughout his statement!)
[Note: the picture shown above.]
This is my ID! Not my driver's license.
This is who I am, a man with a family and I'll do whatever it takes to provide for them. I want you to picture in your minds...you're
out on the land... I'll take you to our ranch, you can see all the beauty of the land, the fresh air, sunsets and sunrises,
the brush, you're on a horse in front of the cattle - place yourself there - feel the freedom - out of the congestion of the
cars - that's how I was raised, playing in the river, we were called river-rats and that is where my life began and I hope
My family has been on that land 141 years, my pioneer ancestors
settled there in 1877 - there was nothing there. They carved out a living... they brought a horse and wagon and some provisions...
this case, the government mentioned is "not about rights", but it is - those rights do mean something - rights are
created through beneficial use. When my ancestors arrived, undoubtedly the horse would need a drink, so they led him to the
water and that is beneficial use. The horse and perhaps a cow that had been led behind the wagon need to eat some brush in
the hills, that is beneficial use. That established rights. The water rights are real! So real, the State of Nevada has a
water rights registry including livestock watering rights. A law was created to protect those rights. The water rights that
my father owns were first registered in 1891 by the State of Nevada - the State of Nevada is important, a sovereign state,
its own unit, which entered the union in 1864. It entered equal to the original states, it is its own entity and state laws
My family and I are charged with some grievous things and
they are not true and evidence will show they are not; force, manipulation, extortion, violent-my family is not a violent
family and I am not a violent man. For 20+ years we turned to local law enforcement. Rights are real property. The fact is
that we create government to protect rights.
To have rights you must claim,
use and defend... man only has rights he is willing to claim, use and defend. There is a difference between rights and privileges.
Rights you own. Privilege is afforded. Like renting or owning a house. Government asserts there are no rights, only privileges
and unless we pay, we can't be there. The State of Nevada says differently. These are my father's rights. Everything we have
comes from the land. That is wealth, not the dollar bill. The things we use all come from the land. Who controls the land,
controls the wealth.
We create government to preserve and serve us. These
are some of the beliefs of my family. That we have said we will do whatever it takes to defend is not a threat, it is a statement.
Being right here before you today is part of doing whatever it takes. The Founding Fathers pledged whatever it would take...
their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, to defend rights. With the evidence you will see that is what we were
doing; there was no conspiracy to impede, to harm... but, to protect our heritage that our pioneer ancestors established.
We were attacked, surrounded by what appeared to be mercenaries, snipers pointed directly at me. You will hear a report from
a sniper that he was keeping watch of me in my van, with my wife and two of my daughters with me.
Our ranch - children are always welcome - it is a place to play, play in the river, the pond, chase
or hunt rabbits, burn your toes in the hot sand in summer-always free. Never before did we feel like someone was always watching.
In early spring of 2014 we felt like someone was always watching... the dogs were watching the hills, when you are always
with a dog you get to know what they are saying with their bark... you can tell by their bark what they are seeing... surveillance
cameras on one hill, but the dog looking at another and growling... (tearfully) This is not what America is supposed to be.
Supposed to be a land of liberty. The Founding Fathers fought and bled so we wouldn't have to and now we find ourselves in
a similar situation.
They say this issue is over grazing fees... it's
terrible, terrible, he must be a freeloader - it's only rhetoric - I'll tell you why - You don't pay rent when you own your
home! We own those rights! Not the land, I know we don't own the land, but access...you and others have rights on that land.
We own water and grazing rights. We don't pay rent for something we own.
BLM was formed in 1960. Our rights were established in 1877, long before BLM. The original states own 100% of their land and
all states were to come in on equal footing. The crux of the issue is, are we a state or not? They say grazing is a
privilege they can revoke and charge fees. If it is only a matter of money it is no problem. In fact, Mr. Whipple showed a
copy of a check made out to Clark County. If the whole purpose is to show we owe a fee, then we'll pay to the proper owner
of the land. That was not the only check written to Clark County, we sent several. Also, in Clark County, there were 53 ranchers
who owned rights. There is only a single one still out on the range. The BLM is not gaining revenue, it's not important to
them. My father could see they were there to manage him out of business. It's not about grazing fees. In the BLM office there
were signs that read: No more Moo by ‘92 and Cattle Free by ‘93! If it were only about the grazing fees, the fees
would have been under $100,000 over 25 years. It is rumored, it may not be seen in evidence, but it is rumored that they spent
$6 million on the operation. Who spends that and court costs rumored to be over $100 million to collect $100,000?
What is this about? The court orders. They say my father had an opportunity in the courts.
The court wouldn't consider states rights. They have forgotten they are servants of the people. We the people are the sovereign
and ultimately, we the people are the government formed to meet needs that are better met by a group than by individuals.
We are not slaves. We need to remember that. I think that's forgotten. The definition of freedom is lost in America. When
we have to have a license or ask permission to do everything, we are subjects.
Back to the charges - they claimed I went to Richfield and that the sheriff had to be called because we were causing
such a ruckus-evidence will show otherwise-we boycott to influence to change ways - we protest to cause a change - these are
first amendment rights - we do not get rights from the Bill of Rights - we have rights to begin with - it should be called
the Prohibition of Government - we have freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly,
we can petition for a redress of grievances-rights we don't want the government to mess with.
A redress is to find an answer, find a solution - one way to protest. The BLM put up first amendment zones - not
much bigger than this courtroom - we called them pig pens - by creating that area, they were denying our right everywhere
else - that's what they used to arrest my brother - he was outside the pig pens. The first amendment has been protected over
and over again in our history. There's lots of media in the gallery today, they wouldn't be happy to have their right to free
speech taken. First amendment was put in the Supreme Law of the land, the Constitution - they shall make no law restricting
these things... as you saw in the video yesterday, my brother was not impeding, not blocking, he was on a state road, on its
right-of-way, simply to take pictures with his ipad of them stealing our cattle - they attacked him, threw him to the ground,
rubbed his face in the ground. (emotional) The American public saw this and came not to impede or do harm. They came because
they felt the spirit of the Lord, spirit of freedom and felt "we the people are not going to put up with that behavior".
It was not pointed out there were snipers on the hill, I witnessed that through binoculars and the evidence will show this.
Back to Richfield, Utah, evidence and witness testimony will show there was not a ruckus
there that disrupted or shut down that auction. I called the sheriff - that's the pattern - the local law enforcement and
state brand inspectors in Nevada, Arizona and Utah and I had contact with the highway patrol, county commissioners in several
counties and state officials - not all face to face, but some through phone calls. Is this what a criminal does? No. We were
there protecting life, liberty, property. You saw the video of them hip chucking my Aunt Margaret, 50+ years of and just finished
with cancer treatments, the mother of 11 children. They call these BLM guys law enforcement, but they are just BLM employees.
All authority comes from we the people, we delegate authority to the county sheriff who we elect and he hires deputies and
we then have a sheriff's department to protect our life, our liberty, our property. Choosing for yourself is freedom and we
have no right to impede or harm others. That's God's law. Man-made law is to follow that. Man is supposed to be free, not
controlled, serfs or slaves. Government is to be our servant. The government went in and shut down 600,000 acres - not one
of us ever went into their enclosed area and never impeded them. Even my brother driving into the dump truck... isn't that
impediment? The court order did not allow destruction of water infrastructure. What was a dump truck doing out there? Since
that was beyond the scope of the supposed court order, we had a right to know. They could have stopped and answered our questions,
but no, they set out attack dogs and tazers and threw Aunt Margaret to the ground. Every incident they are charging us with
happened on property that belonged to the State of Nevada. Even if BLM had authority to close public land, they have no authority
to close State of Nevada public land. The fence was on the State of Nevada land. Except by invitation, you will not see one
of us breach that fence or impede the gather. We did not violate the court order. Dave went over the fence by the invitation
of Dan Love and then the sheriff took over and asked for our help to take down the fence and then the cowboys, led by sheriffs
squad cars went to release the cattle. The sheriff honored his oath and did his job. He should have done it sooner.
I love my family. I love them. I love this land. I love freedom. I am from the State of
Nevada. I'm a true Nevadan. I mentioned before that Nevada became a state on Oct. 31st and we always got out of school on
that day... I always thought we got out because it was my birthday. I'm a true Nevadan. I believe you are, too, and love freedom
as much as I do. Freedom's not being lost overseas - it's lost right here at home in our back yards, our front yards. Until
we are willing to do whatever it takes, liberty will be, is being lost. We are not anti-government! Government has its proper
place and duties to perform. I want government to do its job. Nothing more. Nothing less. When government does more or less
than its job, it becomes the criminal. When government damages our rights, it becomes the criminal. When someone harms or
damages another's life, liberty or property that is the definition of a criminal. Extortion, violence, pointing guns - everything
we are charged with, they were doing and thousands of people came running - the world knew about this - China, Ireland (they
sent us a flag), New Zealand and other countries - why? Because America stood for freedom and has for years and the world
is interested in seeing how America (emotional) will deal with freedom. The world wants to know. The American people said,
"yes, we will stand for freedom. Government, you've gone too far and we will put a stop to it."
The courts have a place. It is said that We the People are the fourth branch of government.
I say we are the first. The legislature to make laws, the executive to execute laws and the judicial to judge. All three branches
are to protect your rights, our rights, freedom, liberty. Government does not have the authority in and of itself - man creates
government to fulfill and protect rights. We the people give government the authority through the Constitution. The tenth
amendment insures state's rights.
Evidence will show my father and my
brothers are innocent men. We need you to put on that paper that we are not guilty. You are the twelve to represent us, peers,
equals, people...we the People.
Guns...lots of guns...scary...camo...freedom
of speech...also, the right to bear arms, the second amendment...a militia was necessary. What is a militia? It is defined
in the law. U.S. Code defines militia: "all able bodied men 17-45 years of age". How many of you are a member of
the militia? State of Nevada extended that and includes men up to the age of 64. How many of you now are a member of the Nevada
militia? There is the organized militia, the National Guard and the unorganized militia - everyone else. Why did the Founding
Fathers include the second amendment? Was it for duck hunting? No...no! Militia is mentioned six times in the Constitution.
Such a small document and few things are mentioned more than the militia; the central government of this union and yet media
or whatever wants to put a bad face on militia. Why did militia come to Bundy Ranch? To peacefully assemble, redress of grievances.
No one was harmed except Davey, Ammon and Margaret. You will not see in evidence that we ever harmed anyone! They attack and
we turned the other cheek. We were peaceful-insistent? Yes! And, Yes! Demanding. These men, these people did not come to seek
an opportunity to point guns at the government. Hundreds, even thousands of people we didn't know. That's exemplary. These
people came to do good. To protect me, to save my life. I had a sniper pointing at me, 200 armed men surrounding my home,
my family (tearfully) Ryan Payne has been portrayed as a bad man. Evidence will show otherwise. He saved my life. He saved
my life. Others came. I didn't even meet most of them until I was in jail with them, may have seen them in passing, but I
didn't know them until jail. I honor and thank them now! I thank all who came. We only have rights we are willing to fight
for. You'll see evidence that I was nearly always with the sheriff or a deputy - always in communication with them - I was
side-by-side with Lombardo.
Thank you for coming, for being here. I will
still do whatever it takes. This is not a threat, it is determination. I love my freedom. Listen to the still small voice
to discern between truth and error. The indictment and grand jury testimony is full of lies. Truth has been blocked in previous
trials. Listen closely - we will try to get you the truth. The truth will set me free and I'm counting on you to help me see
I invite you to our ranch. I recognize your right to use the land.
We want you to come and enjoy it. I thank you for this time. Please find me not guilty and these other men not guilty. Stand
up for freedom. Thank you.
The Enemy Among Us on civil war:
Thursday, October 12, 2017 22:18
The Enemy Amongst Us!!
Krauthammer is about the best and brightest
journalist and political analyst we have, in my opinion. His words of warning in the below message should be taken seriously
and spread throughout the country so as many of our citizens as possible are made aware of what is happening right under our
An article from the New York Post:
I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and
now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for
OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt
everything that our current president's administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and
it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established
over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run.
What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws?
If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with
judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!
Our ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak
out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's
top dogs over to Organizing for Action.
OFA is behind the strategic
and tactical implementation of the resistance to the Trump Administration that we are seeing across America, and politically
active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.
is dedicated to organizing communities for "progressive" change. Its issues are gun control, socialist healthcare,
abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform.
OFA members were propped up by the ex-president's message from the shadows: "Organizing is the building block
of everything great we have accomplished Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities and OFA
is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2017 and beyond."
OFA's website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the ex-president's re-election effort and that
he inspired the movement. In short, it is the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional
Republic we know as AMERICA.
Paul Sperry, writing for the New York
Post, says, "The OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president will command
them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House."
writes that, "The ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the Trump administration through a network
of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide.
The OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate that the OFA has 32,525 (and growing)
volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his ‘wife' will oversee the operation from their home/office in Washington
Think about how this works. For example: Trump issues an immigration
executive order; the OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; the ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in
jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town
hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action in support of these activities; the twitter sphere lights up with social
media; and violence follows. All of this happens from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests.
If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office,
it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.
If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.
So, do your part. You have read it, so at least pass this on so others will know what
we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a "PERFECT TARGET" for our
America's Eclipse August 21, 2017- An Event
Of Biblical Proportions
Monday, August 21, 2017 4:10
CDN - http://www.conservativedailynews.com
The United States Of America will witness an event of Biblical proportions
on August 21, 2017. If this sounds a bit dramatic, consider these things:
- In Genesis 1 we are told that one of the reasons God has given us the sun, moon, and stars is "for signs". In Luke 21 we are told, "There will be earth-shattering events-the heavens themselves will seem to be shaken with signs
in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars."
- Monday, August 21, there will be
a Solar Eclipse that will cross from coast to coast over America
• This is the first solar eclipse in 99 years to cross over the country from
coast to coast
- It has been nicknamed America's Eclipse
• This is the first solar eclipse to darken the U.S. mainland since 1979
In Matthew 12 the Sadducees and Pharisees, while trying to bait Jesus, told Him to show them miraculous signs. Jesus told them that the
only sign they would be given was the sign of the prophet Jonah. The most common interpretation and understanding of this
passage of Scripture is that Jesus was speaking of His death and resurrection 3 days later, just as Jonah spent 3 days in
the belly of the whale. While this fact is true, due to modern astronomical calculations, we now know that there was a total
eclipse that passed near Nineveh on June 15, 763 BC. According to historians, this appears to be when Jonah went into Nineveh declaring that destruction was coming to that city in 40 days if they did not repent.
first major city that will witness the eclipse is Oregon's state capital, Salem. Salem is of course the shortened version of "Jerusalem", which is the most prophetically significant city in the
entire Bible. Jerusalem was originally called "Salem" in the days of Melchizedek (Genesis 14:18) who was a foreshadowing of Christ or possibly even a Christophany. If that isn't interesting enough, the closest road to
the exact point where the two eclipses cross is Salem Road in Makanda, Illinois. What are the chances of that?"
Why is this important?
• There are a total of 7 Salem's that are
in the path of totality of America's Eclipse:
- Salem, Oregon- Dead Center of the path of the eclipse- Observers there will see (appx.)
1m 54s of totality
- Salem, Nebraska- Dead Center of the path of the eclipse- Observers there will see (appx.) 2m 37s
- Salem, Kentucky- Dead Center of the path of the eclipse- Observers there will see (appx.) 2m 40s of totality
- Salem, South Carolina- Dead Center of the path of the eclipse- Observers there will see (appx.) 2m 36s of totality
- Salem, Idaho- Observers there will see partial totality
- Salem, Missouri- Observers there will see partial totality
- Salem, Wyoming- Observers there will see partial totality
are four factors that make this eclipse the most-viewed ever:
1. media attention
2. traffic on the highways and by-ways of America
3. the typical weather across the
nation on August 21, 2017
4. the vast number of people who will have access to it from nearby large cities.
Ezekiel 33:1-6 commands the watchmen to faithfully warn others of the danger that is coming to the land.
"Jewish rabbis have historically viewed solar eclipses as warnings from God to Gentile nations."
Is God warning America of impending disaster and destruction coming to
This passage of Scripture most certainly seems to confirm that
this is indeed the case:
"The sun will be turned to darkness...before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the Lord." Joel 2:31
"... if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn
from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."
2 Chronicles 7:14
This is the very same warning that God gave the people
of Nineveh through Jonah.
"When Jonah's warning reached the king of Nineveh, he rose from his throne, took off
his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. This is the proclamation he issued in Nineveh:
"By the decree of the king and his nobles:
Do not let people or animals, herds
or flocks, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink. But let people and animals be covered with sackcloth. Let everyone
call urgently on God. Let them give up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion
turn from his fierce anger so that we will not perish."
saw what they did and how they turned from their evil ways, He relented and did not bring on them the destruction He had threatened."
Will America heed the warning just as the people of Nineveh
Sadly, it does not appear that way so far.
Rather than heeding
the warning, Americans are responding with "excitement", declaring:
• "The Great American Eclipse
on August 21 is such an exciting event, it is a really singular and unique event in human history.."
• Deciding to celebrate one of nature's most awe-inspiring sights...marking the monumental event in a special way...with a one-of-a-kind
experience with which to take it all in."
• Outlining "fun stuff to expect during totality..."
• "Encouraging the entire country to watch, enjoy, experience it and do it in a safe way..."
• "Celebrating the occasion in style...making the eclipse a travel-worthy affair... parties included...with as much rosé
as you can pack in your cooler..."
Isaiah 5:20 sums it up in this way:
"O how terrible
for those who confuse good with evil, right with wrong, light with dark, sweet with bitter." (VOICE)
declares, "What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that
bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter." (NLT)
It's being heralded as
a "once-in-a-lifetime event". From coast to coast, this nation will experience darkness all across the land. How terribly sorrowful for the confused
people of this nation! It's not too late, America! It's not too late! "Let everyone call urgently on God. Let them give
up their evil ways and their violence. Who knows? God may yet relent and with compassion turn from his fierce anger so that
we will not perish." Jonah 3:8-10
Washington's Farewell Address
The period for a new election of a citizen to administer
the executive government of the United States being not far distant, and the time actually arrived when your thoughts must
be employed in designating the person who is to be clothed with that important trust, it appears to me proper, especially
as it may conduce to a more distinct expression of the public voice, that I should now apprise you of the resolution I have
formed, to decline being considered among the number of those out of whom a choice is to be made.
I beg you, at the same time, to do me the justice to be assured that this resolution has not been
taken without a strict regard to all the considerations appertaining to the relation which binds a dutiful citizen to his
country; and that in withdrawing the tender of service, which silence in my situation might imply, I am influenced by no diminution
of zeal for your future interest, no deficiency of grateful respect for your past kindness, but am supported by a full conviction
that the step is compatible with both.
The acceptance of, and continuance
hitherto in, the office to which your suffrages have twice called me have been a uniform sacrifice of inclination to the opinion
of duty and to a deference for what appeared to be your desire. I constantly hoped that it would have been much earlier in
my power, consistently with motives which I was not at liberty to disregard, to return to that retirement from which I had
been reluctantly drawn. The strength of my inclination to do this, previous to the last election, had even led to the preparation
of an address to declare it to you; but mature reflection on the then perplexed and critical posture of our affairs with foreign
nations, and the unanimous advice of persons entitled to my confidence, impelled me to abandon the idea.
I rejoice that the state of your concerns, external as well as internal, no longer renders
the pursuit of inclination incompatible with the sentiment of duty or propriety, and am persuaded, whatever partiality may
be retained for my services, that, in the present circumstances of our country, you will not disapprove my determination to
The impressions with which I first undertook the arduous trust
were explained on the proper occasion. In the discharge of this trust, I will only say that I have, with good intentions,
contributed towards the organization and administration of the government the best exertions of which a very fallible judgment
was capable. Not unconscious in the outset of the inferiority of my qualifications, experience in my own eyes, perhaps still
more in the eyes of others, has strengthened the motives to diffidence of myself; and every day the increasing weight of years
admonishes me more and more that the shade of retirement is as necessary to me as it will be welcome. Satisfied that if any
circumstances have given peculiar value to my services, they were temporary, I have the consolation to believe that, while
choice and prudence invite me to quit the political scene, patriotism does not forbid it.
In looking forward to the moment which is intended to terminate the career of my public life, my feelings do not
permit me to suspend the deep acknowledgment of that debt of gratitude which I owe to my beloved country for the many honors
it has conferred upon me; still more for the steadfast confidence with which it has supported me; and for the opportunities
I have thence enjoyed of manifesting my inviolable attachment, by services faithful and persevering, though in usefulness
unequal to my zeal. If benefits have resulted to our country from these services, let it always be remembered to your praise,
and as an instructive example in our annals, that under circumstances in which the passions, agitated in every direction,
were liable to mislead, amidst appearances sometimes dubious, vicissitudes of fortune often discouraging, in situations in
which not unfrequently want of success has countenanced the spirit of criticism, the constancy of your support was the essential
prop of the efforts, and a guarantee of the plans by which they were effected. Profoundly penetrated with this idea, I shall
carry it with me to my grave, as a strong incitement to unceasing vows that heaven may continue to you the choicest tokens
of its beneficence; that your union and brotherly affection may be perpetual; that the free Constitution, which is the work
of your hands, may be sacredly maintained; that its administration in every department may be stamped with wisdom and virtue;
that, in fine, the happiness of the people of these States, under the auspices of liberty, may be made complete by so careful
a preservation and so prudent a use of this blessing as will acquire to them the glory of recommending it to the applause,
the affection, and adoption of every nation which is yet a stranger to it.
perhaps, I ought to stop. But a solicitude for your welfare, which cannot end but with my life, and the apprehension of danger,
natural to that solicitude, urge me, on an occasion like the present, to offer to your solemn contemplation, and to recommend
to your frequent review, some sentiments which are the result of much reflection, of no inconsiderable observation, and which
appear to me all-important to the permanency of your felicity as a people. These will be offered to you with the more freedom,
as you can only see in them the disinterested warnings of a parting friend, who can possibly have no personal motive to bias
his counsel. Nor can I forget, as an encouragement to it, your indulgent reception of my sentiments on a former and not dissimilar
Interwoven as is the love of liberty with every ligament of
your hearts, no recommendation of mine is necessary to fortify or confirm the attachment.
The unity of government which constitutes you one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so, for it is a main
pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety;
of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee that, from different causes
and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed to weaken in your minds the conviction of this
truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be
most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment that you should properly
estimate the immense value of your national union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial,
habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the palladium of your political
safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion
that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion
of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.
For this you have every inducement of sympathy and interest. Citizens, by birth or choice, of a
common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you in your
national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.
With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common
cause fought and triumphed together; the independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels, and joint efforts
of common dangers, sufferings, and successes.
But these considerations,
however powerfully they address themselves to your sensibility, are greatly outweighed by those which apply more immediately
to your interest. Here every portion of our country finds the most commanding motives for carefully guarding and preserving
the union of the whole.
The North, in an unrestrained intercourse with
the South, protected by the equal laws of a common government, finds in the productions of the latter great additional resources
of maritime and commercial enterprise and precious materials of manufacturing industry. The South, in the same intercourse,
benefiting by the agency of the North, sees its agriculture grow and its commerce expand. Turning partly into its own channels
the seamen of the North, it finds its particular navigation invigorated; and, while it contributes, in different ways, to
nourish and increase the general mass of the national navigation, it looks forward to the protection of a maritime strength,
to which itself is unequally adapted. The East, in a like intercourse with the West, already finds, and in the progressive
improvement of interior communications by land and water, will more and more find a valuable vent for the commodities which
it brings from abroad, or manufactures at home. The West derives from the East supplies requisite to its growth and comfort,
and, what is perhaps of still greater consequence, it must of necessity owe the secure enjoyment of indispensable outlets
for its own productions to the weight, influence, and the future maritime strength of the Atlantic side of the Union, directed
by an indissoluble community of interest as one nation. Any other tenure by which the West can hold this essential advantage,
whether derived from its own separate strength, or from an apostate and unnatural connection with any foreign power, must
be intrinsically precarious.
While, then, every part of our country thus
feels an immediate and particular interest in union, all the parts combined cannot fail to find in the united mass of means
and efforts greater strength, greater resource, proportionably greater security from external danger, a less frequent interruption
of their peace by foreign nations; and, what is of inestimable value, they must derive from union an exemption from those
broils and wars between themselves, which so frequently afflict neighboring countries not tied together by the same governments,
which their own rival ships alone would be sufficient to produce, but which opposite foreign alliances, attachments, and intrigues
would stimulate and embitter. Hence, likewise, they will avoid the necessity of those overgrown military establishments which,
under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican
liberty. In this sense it is that your union ought to be considered as a main prop of your liberty, and that the love of the
one ought to endear to you the preservation of the other.
speak a persuasive language to every reflecting and virtuous mind, and exhibit the continuance of the Union as a primary object
of patriotic desire. Is there a doubt whether a common government can embrace so large a sphere? Let experience solve it.
To listen to mere speculation in such a case were criminal. We are authorized to hope that a proper organization of the whole
with the auxiliary agency of governments for the respective subdivisions, will afford a happy issue to the experiment. It
is well worth a fair and full experiment. With such powerful and obvious motives to union, affecting all parts of our country,
while experience shall not have demonstrated its impracticability, there will always be reason to distrust the patriotism
of those who in any quarter may endeavor to weaken its bands.
the causes which may disturb our Union, it occurs as matter of serious concern that any ground should have been furnished
for characterizing parties by geographical discriminations, Northern and Southern, Atlantic and Western; whence designing
men may endeavor to excite a belief that there is a real difference of local interests and views. One of the expedients of
party to acquire influence within particular districts is to misrepresent the opinions and aims of other districts. You cannot
shield yourselves too much against the jealousies and heartburnings which spring from these misrepresentations; they tend
to render alien to each other those who ought to be bound together by fraternal affection. The inhabitants of our Western
country have lately had a useful lesson on this head; they have seen, in the negotiation by the Executive, and in the unanimous
ratification by the Senate, of the treaty with Spain, and in the universal satisfaction at that event, throughout the United
States, a decisive proof how unfounded were the suspicions propagated among them of a policy in the General Government and
in the Atlantic States unfriendly to their interests in regard to the Mississippi; they have been witnesses to the formation
of two treaties, that with Great Britain, and that with Spain, which secure to them everything they could desire, in respect
to our foreign relations, towards confirming their prosperity. Will it not be their wisdom to rely for the preservation of
these advantages on the Union by which they were procured ? Will they not henceforth be deaf to those advisers, if such there
are, who would sever them from their brethren and connect them with aliens?
the efficacy and permanency of your Union, a government for the whole is indispensable. No alliance, however strict, between
the parts can be an adequate substitute; they must inevitably experience the infractions and interruptions which all alliances
in all times have experienced. Sensible of this momentous truth, you have improved upon your first essay, by the adoption
of a constitution of government better calculated than your former for an intimate union, and for the efficacious management
of your common concerns. This government, the offspring of our own choice, uninfluenced and unawed, adopted upon full investigation
and mature deliberation, completely free in its principles, in the distribution of its powers, uniting security with energy,
and containing within itself a provision for its own amendment, has a just claim to your confidence and your support. Respect
for its authority, compliance with its laws, acquiescence in its measures, are duties enjoined by the fundamental maxims of
true liberty. The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government.
But the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon
all. The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual
to obey the established government.
All obstructions to the execution
of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control,
counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental
principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put,
in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of
the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror
of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested
by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.
or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and
things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of
the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them
to unjust dominion.
Towards the preservation of your government, and
the permanency of your present happy state, it is requisite, not only that you steadily discountenance irregular oppositions
to its acknowledged authority, but also that you resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious
the pretexts. One method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution, alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown. In all
the changes to which you may be invited, remember that time and habit are at least as necessary to fix the true character
of governments as of other human institutions; that experience is the surest standard by which to test the real tendency of
the existing constitution of a country; that facility in changes, upon the credit of mere hypothesis and opinion, exposes
to perpetual change, from the endless variety of hypothesis and opinion; and remember, especially, that for the efficient
management of your common interests, in a country so extensive as ours, a government of as much vigor as is consistent with
the perfect security of liberty is indispensable. Liberty itself will find in such a government, with powers properly distributed
and adjusted, its surest guardian. It is, indeed, little else than a name, where the government is too feeble to withstand
the enterprises of faction, to confine each member of the society within the limits prescribed by the laws, and to maintain
all in the secure and tranquil enjoyment of the rights of person and property.
I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of
them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against
the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.
This spirit, unfortunately,
is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes
in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest
rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.
The alternate domination of
one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries
has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and
permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose
in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate
than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.
Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind (which nevertheless ought not to
be entirely out of sight), the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest
and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.
It serves always
to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies
and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens
the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels
of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.
There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration
of the government and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in governments
of a monarchical cast, patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the
popular character, in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is
certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And there being constant danger of excess,
the effort ought to be by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform
vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume.
It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free country should inspire caution in those entrusted
with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of
the powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the
departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of
power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart, is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this
position. The necessity of reciprocal checks in the exercise of political power, by dividing and distributing it into different
depositaries, and constituting each the guardian of the public weal against invasions by the others, has been evinced by experiments
ancient and modern; some of them in our country and under our own eyes. To preserve them must be as necessary as to institute
them. If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular
wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it
is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent
evil any partial or transient benefit, which the use can at any time yield.
all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain
would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these
firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to
cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where
is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the
instruments of investigation in courts of justice ? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained
without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and
experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.
It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government.
The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who that is a sincere friend to it
can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?
Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion
as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.
As a very important source of strength and security, cherish public credit.
One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible, avoiding occasions of expense by cultivating peace, but
remembering also that timely disbursements to prepare for danger frequently prevent much greater disbursements to repel it,
avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt, not only by shunning occasions of expense, but by vigorous exertion in time of
peace to discharge the debts which unavoidable wars may have occasioned, not ungenerously throwing upon posterity the burden
which we ourselves ought to bear. The execution of these maxims belongs to your representatives, but it is necessary that
public opinion should co-operate. To facilitate to them the performance of their duty, it is essential that you should practically
bear in mind that towards the payment of debts there must be revenue; that to have revenue there must be taxes; that no taxes
can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant; that the intrinsic embarrassment, inseparable from
the selection of the proper objects (which is always a choice of difficulties), ought to be a decisive motive for a candid
construction of the conduct of the government in making it, and for a spirit of acquiescence in the measures for obtaining
revenue, which the public exigencies may at any time dictate.
good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct;
and can it be, that good policy does not equally enjoin it - It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and at no distant period,
a great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and
benevolence. Who can doubt that, in the course of time and things, the fruits of such a plan would richly repay any temporary
advantages which might be lost by a steady adherence to it ? Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity
of a nation with its virtue ? The experiment, at least, is recommended by every sentiment which ennobles human nature. Alas!
is it rendered impossible by its vices?
In the execution of such a plan,
nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments
for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The
nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to
its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest. Antipathy
in one nation against another disposes each more readily to offer insult and injury, to lay hold of slight causes of umbrage,
and to be haughty and intractable, when accidental or trifling occasions of dispute occur. Hence, frequent collisions, obstinate,
envenomed, and bloody contests. The nation, prompted by ill-will and resentment, sometimes impels to war the government, contrary
to the best calculations of policy. The government sometimes participates in the national propensity, and adopts through passion
what reason would reject; at other times it makes the animosity of the nation subservient to projects of hostility instigated
by pride, ambition, and other sinister and pernicious motives. The peace often, sometimes perhaps the liberty, of nations,
has been the victim.
So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation
for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common
interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former
into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to
concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions;
by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate,
in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote
themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes
even with popularity; gilding, with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public
opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation.
As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly
alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions,
to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils. Such an attachment
of a small or weak towards a great and powerful nation dooms the former to be the satellite of the latter.
Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens)
the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one
of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument
of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive
dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts
of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious,
while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.
The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial
relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let
them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop. Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none;
or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign
to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes
of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.
Our detached and distant situation invites and enables us to pursue a different course. If we remain one people under
an efficient government. the period is not far off when we may defy material injury from external annoyance; when we may take
such an attitude as will cause the neutrality we may at any time resolve upon to be scrupulously respected; when belligerent
nations, under the impossibility of making acquisitions upon us, will not lightly hazard the giving us provocation; when we
may choose peace or war, as our interest, guided by justice, shall counsel.
forego the advantages of so peculiar a situation? Why quit our own to stand upon foreign ground? Why, by interweaving our
destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest,
humor or caprice?
It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances
with any portion of the foreign world; so far, I mean, as we are now at liberty to do it; for let me not be understood as
capable of patronizing infidelity to existing engagements. I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs,
that honesty is always the best policy. I repeat it, therefore, let those engagements be observed in their genuine sense.
But, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and would be unwise to extend them.
care always to keep ourselves by suitable establishments on a respectable defensive posture, we may safely trust to temporary
alliances for extraordinary emergencies.
Harmony, liberal intercourse
with all nations, are recommended by policy, humanity, and interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and
impartial hand; neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or preferences; consulting the natural course of things; diffusing
and diversifying by gentle means the streams of commerce, but forcing nothing; establishing (with powers so disposed, in order
to give trade a stable course, to define the rights of our merchants, and to enable the government to support them) conventional
rules of intercourse, the best that present circumstances and mutual opinion will permit, but temporary, and liable to be
from time to time abandoned or varied, as experience and circumstances shall dictate; constantly keeping in view that it is
folly in one nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its independence for
whatever it may accept under that character; that, by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given
equivalents for nominal favors, and yet of being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more. There can be no greater
error than to expect or calculate upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion, which experience must cure, which
a just pride ought to discard.
In offering to you, my countrymen, these
counsels of an old and affectionate friend, I dare not hope they will make the strong and lasting impression I could wish;
that they will control the usual current of the passions, or prevent our nation from running the course which has hitherto
marked the destiny of nations. But, if I may even flatter myself that they may be productive of some partial benefit, some
occasional good; that they may now and then recur to moderate the fury of party spirit, to warn against the mischiefs of foreign
intrigue, to guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism; this hope will be a full recompense for the solicitude
for your welfare, by which they have been dictated.
How far in the discharge
of my official duties I have been guided by the principles which have been delineated, the public records and other evidences
of my conduct must witness to you and to the world. To myself, the assurance of my own conscience is, that I have at least
believed myself to be guided by them.
In relation to the still subsisting
war in Europe, my proclamation of the twenty-second of April, I793, is the index of my plan. Sanctioned by your approving
voice, and by that of your representatives in both houses of Congress, the spirit of that measure has continually governed
me, uninfluenced by any attempts to deter or divert me from it.
deliberate examination, with the aid of the best lights I could obtain, I was well satisfied that our country, under all the
circumstances of the case, had a right to take, and was bound in duty and interest to take, a neutral position. Having taken
it, I determined, as far as should depend upon me, to maintain it, with moderation, perseverance, and firmness.
The considerations which respect the right to hold this conduct, it is not necessary on
this occasion to detail. I will only observe that, according to my understanding of the matter, that right, so far from being
denied by any of the belligerent powers, has been virtually admitted by all.
duty of holding a neutral conduct may be inferred, without anything more, from the obligation which justice and humanity impose
on every nation, in cases in which it is free to act, to maintain inviolate the relations of peace and amity towards other
The inducements of interest for observing that conduct will
best be referred to your own reflections and experience. With me a predominant motive has been to endeavor to gain time to
our country to settle and mature its yet recent institutions, and to progress without interruption to that degree of strength
and consistency which is necessary to give it, humanly speaking, the command of its own fortunes.
Though, in reviewing the incidents of my administration, I am unconscious of intentional error,
I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects not to think it probable that I may have committed many errors. Whatever they
may be, I fervently beseech the Almighty to avert or mitigate the evils to which they may tend. I shall also carry with me
the hope that my country will never cease to view them with indulgence; and that, after forty five years of my life dedicated
to its service with an upright zeal, the faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion, as myself must soon
be to the mansions of rest.
Relying on its kindness in this as in other
things, and actuated by that fervent love towards it, which is so natural to a man who views in it the native soil of himself
and his progenitors for several generations, I anticipate with pleasing expectation that retreat in which I promise myself
to realize, without alloy, the sweet enjoyment of partaking, in the midst of my fellow-citizens, the benign influence of good
laws under a free government, the ever-favorite object of my heart, and the happy reward, as I trust, of our mutual cares,
labors, and dangers.
Speech delivered by Pattrick Henry at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia
March 23, 1775.
MR. PRESIDENT: No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very
worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and,
therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do, opinions of a character
very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely, and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The
question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question
of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only
in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country.
Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason
towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against
a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged
in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and,
having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit
it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future
but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the
last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that
insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer
not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these
war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation?
Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive
ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen,
sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible
motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and
armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet
upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try
argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We
have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and
humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive
ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned;
we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition
to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced
additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the
foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer
any room for hope. If we wish to be free² if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we
have been so long contending²if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged,
and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight!
I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be
the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every
house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying
supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir,
we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. Three millions of
people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which
our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the
destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone;
it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is
now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking
may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable²and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace²but there is no peace.
The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our
brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so
dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course
others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
She survived Hitler and wants to warn America
posted by Rob Kerby, Senior Editor
Kitty Werthmann survived Hitler.
"What I am about to tell you is something you've probably never heard or read in history books," she likes
to tell audiences.
"I am a witness to history.
"I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.
"We voted him in."
you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the
Nazis. Kitty wasn't so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware.
And she was watching.
"We elected him by a landslide - 98 percent
of the vote," she recalls.
She wasn't old enough to vote in 1938
- approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.
that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force."
"In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third
of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.
Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house
to house begging for food. Not that they didn't want to work; there simply weren't any jobs.
"My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of
soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people - about 30 daily.'
looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933." she recalls. "We had been
told that they didn't have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.
"Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group - Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that
everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean
the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get
their farms back.
"Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to
annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.
overjoyed," remembers Kitty, "and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government
opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.
election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone
was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.
"Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married
Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn't support his family.
Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give
up for marriage.
"Then we lost religious education for kids
"Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The
population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked
into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler's picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout
woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn't pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland,
Uber Alles,' and had physical education.
"Sunday became National
Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that
if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined
the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail."
And then things got worse.
"The first two hours consisted
of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and
got our sports equipment free.
"We would go home and gleefully tell
our parents about the wonderful time we had.
"My mother was very
unhappy," remembers Kitty. "When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent.
I told her she couldn't do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum,
but hardly any fun - no sports, and no political indoctrination.
hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old
friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.
loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having
a baby for Hitler.
"It seemed strange to me that our society changed
so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn't exposed to that kind of humanistic
"Then food rationing began
"In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could
only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn't work, you
didn't get a ration card, and if you didn't have a card, you starved to death.
"Women who stayed home to raise their families didn't have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs
more suited for men.
"Soon after this, the draft was implemented.
"It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the
labor corps," remembers Kitty. "During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their
barracks for military training just like the boys.
"They were trained
to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were
used in the front lines.
"When I go back to Austria to visit my family
and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.
"Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I
nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.
"When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established
child care centers.
"You could take your children ages four weeks
old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.
"The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to
take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights.
We knew we had been had.
"Before Hitler, we had very good medical
care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna..
Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it
was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.
the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were
"If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year
or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools
literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.
"As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000
loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.
"All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was
subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.
"We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that
had square tables.
" Government officials told him he had to replace
them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom
facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn't meet all the demands.
"Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small
ones existed, it could be in control.
"We had consumer protection,
"We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise
was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count
the live-stock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.
"In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain
passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.
"So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally
retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work.
knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others
getting into a van.
"I asked my superior where they were going. She
said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were
required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.
"They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.
"As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful
death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and
all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.
"Then they took
"Next came gun registration. People were getting injured
by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most
citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the
police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile
not to comply voluntarily.
"No more freedom of speech. Anyone
who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests
and ministers who spoke up.
"Totalitarianism didn't come quickly,
it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would
have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea
sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom."
"This is my eye-witness account.
"It's true. Those
of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.
"America is truly is the greatest country in the world.
"Don't let freedom slip away.
"After America, there
is no place to go."
