America, Globalism, and Political Parties

Restoring the American Republic

America is defined by the Constitution but every day America looks less and less like that definition. When you look at the government today all you see is graft and corruption, cowardice and fear, complicity and sedition, an evil pragmatism that compromises with the worst kind of evil.

The United States of America became the most innovative and productive republic the world has ever known because our founders had the vision and foresight to trust the desire in man to provide for his own family, pursue his dreams, and live in liberty. America was prosperous because government stayed out of the people’s way and the result was spectacular; so much so that despotic regimes considered us a grave threat to the power and control they exercised over their own people and economies.

Many of those nations, including Britain, have worked behind the scenes on the world stage to attack the…

Enforcement… of our Constitution!

Restoring the American Republic

When peace officers begin actively opposing the unlawful and seditious conduct of their superiors I will consider that real progress in the restoration of the republic. No one is above the law and the Constitution is the Supreme Law of this land and those amendments lawfully attached thereto.

If a judge makes a statement in open court that is contemptuous of his/her oath, the officers witnessing such action should remove the despot from the bench immediately. Such action in open court is the same as a confession of guilt and letting that person continue in that capacity is injurious to the citizens brought before the bench.

The same holds true for Congress. Whenever a representative supports an enemy nation or system on the floor of the house publicly, whether that support is material or moral, is an act of treason defined in Article III, Section 3. They should be summarily…

Faith in our Military

Restoring the American Republic

Salute01

To many of you, particularly families of active duty military personnel, I wish to explain why I don’t share your faith in our military today. Since Barack Hussein Obama assumed office, they have been obeying the orders of a usurper and protecting him in our White House while he makes a mockery of our Constitution; making him a clear enemy of that Constitution.

Since 2008, Obama has spent millions to prevent the people of this republic from seeing documentation relating to his citizenship and eligibility for the office of President. Too many people, especially in the Democrat Party, believe adherence to the requirements of the Constitution is trivial; something to be set aside to attain something they have determined is more desirable.

When our people enter the military they swear an oath, the oath for enlisted personnel is:

“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and…

Removing the Sting of Democracy

Once again, Thomas Mick and I agree completely on the subject of the ruination of our Repubic by the confusion caused by the false arguments that Democracy was the dream of the Founders. To the Founding Fathers, Democracy was an evil to be eschewed at all costs; however, ever since about 1860, this once great nation has been operated as a Democracy rather than the Republic it was founded as. And the American people have been much poorer because of the treason committed by our leaders since that time.

Restoring the American Republic

America is not, nor ever has been, a democracy… People saying we are, are either ignorant of the facts or deliberately lying. Nowhere in our founding documents is the word democracy; it isn’t in the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, or Constitution, In fact, the Constitution states in Article IV, Section 4:

“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.”

Federalist Paper #10, attributed to James Madison, shows utter contempt for the democratic form of government and reveals that it is the worst form the Convention could have given us…

“From this view of the subject it may be concluded that a pure democracy, by which I mean a society consisting of a small…

A Reason for my Activism

Restoring the American Republic

America was founded as a republic with strict limitations of police power and an emphasis on liberty of the individual. The God-given natural Rights of the people were recognized in law and the Bill of Rights was insisted upon in the first Convention, passed by the first Congress, and ratified by the States on December 15, 1791. All sworn officers of the United States and the states are duty bound to respect and enforce those limitations on government power, no matter how inconvenient they may be to their jobs.

Whenever a law enforcement officer enforces an unconstitutional law it undermines our republic; whittling away at everybody’s liberty, usurping our power, and weakening our republic; this needs to stop and the people need to start insisting that it does.

When I was a little boy in Detroit, Michigan, I remember cops in my neighborhood. The officers were always friendly and gave me the sense…

Making a Stand

Thomas Mick is one of my favorite writers, and — as I too often find when considering a topic to write about for my own blog — I find that Thomas has already written a virtual mirror image of my own thoughts!

Restoring the American Republic

The Federal Government is no longer even pretending to honor the agreement of 1787. The enemies of the republic have reached their end game, infiltrating our institutions to such a level as to render the Constitution impotent by their neglect of it and their wanton disregard for the rule of law, constitutional law. There is no duty of ANY citizen of this republic to obey or respect such usurpers of our Rights and liberty.

We need to stop recognizing the foreign usurper Obama as the President because he isn’t… When he swore into the office on January 20, 2009, he did so knowing that he wasn’t eligible for that office. Furthermore, there are hundreds, if not thousands of people in government that knew Obama wasn’t eligible and still imposed his tyranny on us to further their agenda.

We no longer have a legitimate Federal Government infrastructure and our military no…

President Eisenhower Had It All Wrong… We Were Already Slaves.

I just finished reading this article, which is an excellent history of the rise of the military-industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us so stridently against.

http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2011/01/the-tyranny-of-defense-inc/8342/

However dire seeming was his warning, I would bet that most people simply don’t know that President Eisenhower was the single most responsible President in this escalation of military and industrial cooperation. Just the single fact that, in 1952, when Ike was elected, that America’s nuclear weapon stockpile numbered some 1,000 warheads; but by the time he passed the reins to John F. Kennedy in 1961, it consisted of more than 24,000 warheads, and it rapidly ascended later that decade to a peak of 31,000. So, as exceptional as these two Presidents were in many areas, it would seem that they were actually the most permissive of this marriage of the military establishment and the industrial sector in their unholy alliance that has decimated this nation.

Perhaps Eisenhower was speaking from a desire for forgiveness when, in his farewell address on January 17, 1961, he so fervently warned America to beware of this very entity.

Most people do not know, though, that President Eisenhower espoused a much different view in his little known presentation to the American Society of Newspaper Editors on April 16, 1953 who’s main theme was hailed by many as a blueprint for the end of the Cold War, but condemned by the Russians as a demand for complete and unconditional surrender.

Largely overlooked by most commentators was a second theme that Eisenhower had woven into his text. The essence of this theme was simplicity itself: spending on arms and armies is inherently undesirable. Even when seemingly necessary, it constitutes a misappropriation of scarce resources. By diverting social capital from productive to destructive purposes, war and the preparation for war deplete, rather than enhance, a nation’s strength. And while assertions of military necessity might camouflage the costs entailed, they can never negate them altogether.

“Every gun that is made,” Eisenhower told his listeners, “every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.” Any nation that pours its treasure into the purchase of armaments is spending more than mere money. “It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.” To emphasize the point, Eisenhower offered specifics:

“The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities … We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. ”

These literary bookends to President Eisenhower’s two terms show us that this was a president who went into this august office without the belief in a permanent joining of the military with the industrial sector, but left office as a victim of that very complex. This tells me that this “military industrial complex” existed when he entered office and expanded greatly quite out of his ability to control it.

In support of this theory, I present Smedley Butler, a US Marine who later became an anti-war advocate, and talks a bit about the military-industrial complex.
—————–
“I’ve spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class thug for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents. ”
—————–
Based upon this quotation, which has been verified many times, it would be apparent that the military industrial complex has existed in America for a much longer period of time than President Eisenhower or many others believed.

Of course, that begs the question, “When did this unholy alliance begin?”; I theorize that it actually began at the start of the Civil War, at the hands of one President Abraham Lincoln.

There has been a quotation attributed to Abraham Lincoln; many say that he did not write it, and apparently this 1864 letter cannot be found — or has simply been destroyed? Possibly, but it reads like something a repentant Abraham Lincoln would write, so I believe that there is a preponderance of evidence that he did write this letter.

On Nov. 21, 1864 President Abraham Lincoln is said to have written a letter to Colonel William F. Elkins. He said,
———————–
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
———————-

Friends, would any of you be shocked if, at this point, I made the statement that our nation — and by extension, our Liberty — had been stolen from our forefathers by a group of corporations? Chief among them would be the DuPont Corporation, but there are and were many others.

As a result of President Eisenhower’s farewell speech, most people assume that the start of World War II ushered in the beginning of the military industrial complex.

Actually, it was Abraham Lincoln who first began the integration of the full-time military with the civilian arms manufacturing industry. President Eisenhower misspoke when he stated that until the latest of our world conflicts, the U.S. had no arms industry; the arms industry was a thriving business in America.

President Abraham Lincoln brought in scientists from all over the world to develop military technology. Thus, the American Civil War became known as the first modern war.

Probably the best known technological advancement of the Civil War was the USS Monitor. While it was not the first ironclad ship, it was the first to have a revolving turret. Other Union advances included the Gatling gun and improvements to rail and medical technology.

The South, due to it’s more agricultural economy, had little hope of matching the success of the North in developing military technology, but there were some notable exceptions. The CSS Hunley is considered the first modern submarine.

Additionally, the south produced the finest-quality gunpowder in the world at that time. A huge gunpowder manufacturing facility was constructed; it was ultra-modern for the time. To reduce the possibility of explosions, workers were dressed in white suits with rubber boots to eliminate static electricity discharges. Powder storage buildings were designed to contain and deflect explosions should they occur.

After the war, the DuPont Chemical Company demanded the North destroy the southern plant and buy their inferior-quality gunpowder instead.

The South also developed torpedoes and land mines. Other Union advances included electric fuses and hand grenades. Union scientists improved on the telegraph and aerial recon via balloon was developed too.

So, it was, in fact Lincoln who first began the Military/Industrial Complex which has been the largest purveyor of death and destruction for over a century.

And it is that same military industrial complex which has stolen our birthright in order to ensure itself a steady profit and guarantee it’s continued existence..
