“The EPA is telling landowners they the EPA are prosecutor, defender, jury and judge where property is concerned.  If you for instance have an indentation in the land and water would accumulate while it was raining, the EPA has and will exercise complete jurisdiction of that property.   The EPA has taken the position they are ultimate owner of all property and the title holders rights are subject to the wishes of the EPA.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

REFLECTIONS ON INDEPENDENCE AND THE DECLARATION THEREOF

From the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”

1441183_401318466665654_1752838926_nWe were, according to the Declaration of Independence granted certain rights by the creator that are unalienable rights.  Amongst these unalienable rights are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  It is important to note that these unalienable rights are not restricted to these three, but these three are included in the total.  Unalienable rights are rights not given by the government or men but are from the creator.  Therefore these rights are not be taken from us or restricted by the government or men in any way.  Included in the total of the unalienable rights would be many of the rights reserved for the people in the Bill of Rights.  These are rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion not freedom from religion, freedom to bear arms, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly and so forth.  These rights are essential in a free society.  In every totalitarian state, it is these rights that are restricted and limited first.

Our founding fathers told us, when any government becomes destructive of these rights, we are to alter or abolish that government and form a new one.  This is a very serious charge we were given.  As we look at the happenings and events in recent history, the question we must ask is have we reached such a time?  Doing a quick exam, I would suggest we are coming closer and closer to that time if it has in fact not been reached.  At the very least we must have an open and honest discussion that transcends spin and political correctness.

“Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep.”

Let’s join hands and stand together shoulder to shoulder this may 16th in Washington DC.

The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released recently. If all of us “old farts” have all of the money, we should be able to fight for our freedom and liberty. Governor George Wallace during his run for the office of the presidency Said:  “There is not a dimes worth of difference between the political parties”. Let us try to elect someone who might be near honest and not be after feathering their own nests. That means NEW BLOOD, across the board.

The younger adults yes, our own children like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. Yes, it’s true, we walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

You can’t defend freedom by eliminating freedom

“As a country we have been attacked and overtaken.  It was not a foreign terrorist who took us down; it was the enemies inside the gates that proliferated in the District of Criminals.”

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

You can’t defend freedom by eliminating freedom, or by terrorizing your own country.

This is not the America I grew up in.  Maybe it never was what I had believed it to be.  Regardless, what is before us now as a nation, is the growing police state complete with total surveillance and the targeting of any individual as a possible “domestic terrorist” for expressing their own thoughts, for rejecting government policies that are meant to limit or eradicate any freedom we may have had.

The 9/11 Decade and the Decline of U.S. Democracy

The Bush Administration created the “war on terror” paradigm not to protect us from future attack, although that was what they claimed, but rather to put in place a radical expansion of power that sought to place the president outside domestic and international law.

A perusal of the laws passed by congress and presidents many of which are a direct attack on10-1-2013-10-25-59-am freedom and liberty, do not affect terrorists in the least.  These laws, all passed with the caveat that it was necessary if they were to keep us safe, affect no one but US citizens.  They have no bearing on terrorism and are only the excuse being used to keep you quiet as they continue limiting your freedom and expanding the federal corporation.

One of the greatest freedoms we had, was the freedom to be left alone by government.  The NSA spy grid and the massive data collection center in Utah are the official end to any pretense of privacy.  We have a government populated by people who have in essence, declared war on the country as a whole.  Just because they have not yet opened fire on us, does not mean they do not consider us their sworn enemies or, that they would not move immediately to wipe us off the face of the earth should we become too insistent on our freedom.  Nevertheless, we do insist on preserving our freedom wherever and whenever possible.

Homeland Terrorism Department and the terrorists who run it

The Homeland Terrorism Department at work

We are not celebrating the 4th of July this year.  In my estimation, the underlying reason for honoring this day has long since been buried under the fascism of what is in reality, a foreign and hostile government.  In fact, with the ongoing attacks perpetrated by Janet Napolitano and her SS troops on behalf of the CEO of the Corporate USA (past and present) and the total agreement and complicity of both houses of congress, I expect the 4th of July and any corresponding celebrations to be outlawed or seriously marginalized in the near future.  In fact, I am surprised that any celebration of the 4th hasn’t been identified as a terrorist activity.

Just in time for the 4th, Napolitano’s Homeland Terrorism Department (HTD) has yet again issued a descriptive list of just what might comprise terrorist activity and just who would be doing it.  The HTD list is of course comprised of anyone who wants smaller government, less government intrusion and control in our lives, and those of us who view the global economy as the tool of destruction it has proven to be, as possible terrorists.  Those of us who reject globalism and wish to retain our national identity and sovereignty, tops the list of potential terrorists.

The list was produced via grant money paid to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses (NCSTR) apparently located within the HTD Science and Technology Center for Excellence.  As anyone knows who has applied for grant money, among other things you have to be on board with the stated mission of the grantor in order to be approved for the grant.  Taking grant money from HTD to produce a report to be used as some kind of evidence or precautionary list, is obviously one-sided and is startling in its omissions.

It is startling to realize that when these list were compiled, not one of these researchers (and I use that term loosely here) identified themselves nor those in the department as terroristsMore

Searching For an Identity

James E. Bare, D.C./ Guest author

When discussing politics, it is really not about Right and Left, Conservative or Liberal. It is very simple. It is all about Liberty and Freedom, or Tyranny and Oppression. It does not matter the political label that is attached. One cannot look the other way as one’s chosen so called Conservative or Liberal party promotes Tyranny and Oppression.

One must awaken and realizes that the end result of our present political polarization is Serfdom for all , with no Freedom and Liberty for anyone.

There should be no further tolerance, for anyone that promotes; ideology, laws, rules, regulations and legislation whose end result is Tyranny and Oppression.

This is not the promotion of  anarchy, it is about respect for the gifts and blessings of Liberty and Freedom we all have been given as an unalienable  birthright. Those that would use their accumulated power and/or wealth to manipulate society to serve their purposes, and thus take from others their liberty and freedom,  do need the restraint of law to check their inclinations.

It is not about class warfare, the Rich Vs the Poor, Left Vs Right , Capitalists Vs Socialists Vs Communists Vs Fascists Vs Anarchists. Either one’s country promotes Liberty and Freedom for all, or all the people ( including you )  of that country  wind up Serf’s controlled by a ruling class elite .

The differences between the Left and Right ? The Left claims they will treat their Serf’s better than the Right. Both Right and Left political ideologies promote Tyranny and Oppression. It is just who is being Tyrannized, and who is being Oppressed, is different.

We must not be quiescent, in the face of Oppression and Tyranny. Even though it is our nature to be so. To quote from Jefferson  “that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable”.

Liberty and Freedom are always present and are unalienable to us. But through laws, regulations, rules, legal decisions, and social contracts, we give up our use and access to these bit by bit until we find we are Serf’s. Serf’s with their very lives directed and controlled by a haughty ruling class elite.  Yet the very second we throw out these impediments to Freedom and Liberty, we can once again experience the blessings of Freedom and Liberty. These blessings never leave our side, but we can, and have,  turned our backs upon them.

As Americans we have allowed Non-American political beliefs to infiltrate our consciousness. We tend think in terms of Liberal or Conservative, Left or Right . The American Constitution and it’s founding ideals have nothing to do with these political constructs. All that has happened by accepting these polarizing Non American political systems, is that we have become divided while arguing about what political ideology can ultimately create the happiest Serf’s, and do so as painlessly as possible .  It is time to reject these foreign polarizing ideologies. It is time  to fulfill  our unalienable birthright, so that we might  seek and promote  the commonality of benefits and blessings for all,  by relentlessly promoting Freedom and Liberty for all.

“Our gas tank is empty   and there is a combination lock on the gas cap.  Government won’t  release the combination.  If we can’t get the gas cap off, we can’t  fill the tank with fuel and our engine will never run again!  Is this  true?”  Ron Ewart
In all of our wars and all of the  difficulties we have faced as a nation in the last 235 years, if we would let a  little thing like a combination lock get in the way of where we wanted to go,  America would have never gotten where it is.  If there was a wall, we went  over it, around it, under it ….. or through it.  If there was a lock in  our way, we “picked it” or blew it up.  If there was a frontier, we  explored it.  If there was a beachhead, we took it.  If there was a  tyrant, we pulled his teeth and rendered him impotent ….. or dead.  If  there was a bridge to be built, we built it.  If we wanted to go into  space, into space we went.   Literally nothing stood in the way of  Americans, when they wanted to create something, build something, stop a  dictator, or get to a place where they wanted to go.   We were  unstoppable and contrary to popular opinion, we still are.
When a person or a nation was in  need, we met that need out of the greatness, goodness and kindness of  our collective hearts.  Americans are the most generous people on planet  earth and don’t let anyone tell you different.  We could do all these  things because we were not only free, but that freedom allowed us to create the  wealth from which we were able to BE generous.
Which brings us to today.  How  is it that Americans, who not only carved out an  unprecedented free society based on unalienable individual rights as a gift  from our creator at a horrendous sacrifice, conquered a continent, but who also  created a country of vast wealth and riches, would a let a little thing like an  Obama, or a corrupt Congress, or a mis-guided judiciary that have  thrown our unalienable rights and our constitution to the wolves, stand in the  way of reclaiming our freedom and our Republic?  Have we lost our  courage to enter into a fight to prevent being enslaved?  Are we so afraid  of losing what we have, that we would back away from aggressively  challenging those that are trying to take it away, even if those that are trying  to take it away are some of our own people?  Just because our enemy is a  domestic one and not a foreign enemy does that preclude us from taking them  on?  Have we grown so timid and apathetic that we shrink in  fear when a fight is thrust upon us and ladies and gentlemen, a fight is  being thrust upon us like never before?  It is a deadly fight between  two opposing ideologies and a government that uses those opposing ideologies to  divide, conquer and enslave us.

“Sticking It In The Face of the Bully!”

“A bully not confronted and taken down, is a bully empowered to continue on his path of devastation and destruction, of lives and livelihoods, especially those self righteous bullies who bully others under the false flag of compassion.”  

Ron Ewart

Don’t you just love it when the good guys stick it to the bullies?  The bullies have been running the playground for a hundreds years now, but finally, the other kids are drumming up the courage to push back against the bully and his minions and mindless, bought-off groupies.

Americans are showing up at town hall meetings like never before and they are angry and loaded for bear.  They’re packing city and county halls with people who have finally woken up to the sly, covert intrusion of social justice, communism, socialism, radical environmentalism and the one-world-government, into our local, state and federal institutions.  More frequently you will find these patriots at legislative hearings crying foul over special interest legislation and overt, blatant attacks on the constitution or the natural order.  You will find them at budget hearings where every line item in a government’s budget is scrutinized and then made public for all to see, including all of the crony handouts and give-aways to their favorite voters, or donors.

School board meetings are becoming a lot more lively these days over what our kids are being taught.  The parents of kids in a school southeast of Seattle, WA found out that the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, requested that a special class be taught to their kids on Muslim tolerance by representatives of an organization that has been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.   The school board backed up when the parents descended on a town hall meeting and let ‘em have it.  KOMO TV NEWS was there.  The question is, why did the school board think that it was a good idea in the first place, or why did they think they could get away with it?  Now that IS troubling!  The word “bully” comes to mind.

(NWR) – This article is the beginning of a series where I will point out some of the problems in modern political philosophy and shed light on some possible solutions that can help us reverse the ominous path that our species is walking.  In today’s selection we are going to discuss the brutal nature of republics and democracies, and consider how both are varying forms of slavery, which have clung to the human psyche as remnants from our mundane past.

If the primary goal within a society is to achieve happiness, safety, freedom and peace then we can surely say that there is not a place on earth where this has been accomplished.

Coincidentally, almost every chartable geographical area on the planet is micro managed by organizations who claim responsibility for ensuring the happiness and safety of the people.  These organizations call themselves “governments” and it is fairly obvious by now that they are absolutely horrible at their jobs and are actually responsible for the majority of the world’s suffering.  It doesn’t matter if it’s an open dictatorship, a democracy, a republic, a communist state or a system of mercantilism, they have all failed miserably in creating a free society.

Ask President Obama and the Congress why… 

The first question I want to ask the president and all the members of congress is: Why did you hate the way America was? 

The saying goes ‘love it or leave it’. 

Why are you still living here?  

Why did you tell us you wanted to serve and represent your fellow citizens, then turn your back on us and our country?  We did not plan or carry out the attacks on America on Sept. 11th 2001, but you have treated us like we did.   You’ve sent our valiant soldiers to the other side of the world to avenge 9/11 and stop another attack, but have stood silently by while there was an invasion of the U.S. at our southern border. 

Why have you failed to protect us from that? 

Why have you let the ‘terrorists win’ by destroying everything that was wonderful about America?  You’ve taken away our reason to fly our flag proudly and shamed our name around the world with your legalized brutality and torture.  More

From 1948….a 10 minute cartoon about signing your freedom away in exchange for an “ism”.  This could have been produced today especially in light of the passage of three more unconstitutional trade agreements rammed through congress against the best interests of the people. 

Free trade and Capitalism is not the same as privileged trade and CRAPitalism.

You get what you pay for. Or, more precisely, you get what you work for. Over 230 years ago, a group of colonists on the edge of the new world realized that the freedom they traveled halfway across the planet searching for would never be, unless, that is, they finally confronted the iron fisted enemy they once ran from. Their Declaration of Independence was a struggle in itself. Most Americans at that time were not resolved to support revolution. Many were undecided even after the war was won. Ultimately, the most powerful and pervasive empire on earth at that time, the British Empire, was defeated by a mere portion of the American population; farmers, craftsmen, tradesmen, frontiersmen, who had fought with such force of will, with such passion, that they were able to convince other nations (like France) that such a thing could even be achieved. In that moment, they transformed the shape of the Earth forever. The impossible was now, indeed, possible. The great shadow of elitism and autocracy was not only vulnerable; it could be crushed by the likes of so called “peasants”. The common man could determine his own destiny, and shape his own government. No matter what had happened before, or what has happened since, no one, and nothing, could erase that moment from time, when the leviathan was cast down, and men tasted true freedom.

You get what you work for. READ MORE

Enjoy your holiday everyone!  Take time to remember those who gave their lives and/or service in defense of your liberty.  

Those who fill the rows in Arlington National Cemetery and those who have been buried near their homes gave all they had to make sure you remained free.  Many suffer from lifelong disabilities as a result of their service in honor of your freedom.  To honor them and their sacrifices we, in the federal government, lovingly referred to as “Uncle Sam” have done everything we could to sustain the Constitution and your civil liberties and freedom.  More

Update: The photographs below no longer load nor are there any to be found. So readers will just have to imagine the small innocent faces of Pakistani Children laying  reposed upon homemade blankets likely stitched by their female family members. The ages ranged from about 18 months to 7 years. Nine little human children lined up upon the poor rocky ground of THEIR Nation. Bombed perhaps in the middle of the night while sleeping. Collateral Damage.

But you cannot see that Reader, because that is upsetting. That might cause you to question the actions of a government that takes your money to kill innocents. Of course these bombings must stop. Now. More

People die.

The various ways could fill this blog with dark depressing facts.

Yet it happens.

As thinking rational beings, we want justification for the loss of a loved one. We want answers and so we comb backwards through the events looking for the smallest action that could have “changed what might have been”.

“Could I have”, “should I have”, “did we”, “how come”, “there should have been a law” – it is all part of the stages of grief to find meaning in the final process of life : Death. More

$20.00 includes book and DVD. 

A person cannot live in a surveillance society while at the same time living in a free society. All citizens want accountability from our elected leaders regardless of what political party they represent. We are accountable as well to future generations and to honor those that have defended our freedom. It is said that ignorance is not an excuse for breaking the law. Ignorance is no excuse for losing our freedom. For yourself, for our children and for those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country, read this short book and decide if freedom still lives. The author has written legislation, testified about that legislation and worked with groups/organizations at the state/national level to protect your freedom.

This includes the book and a DVD. >>>>>GO HERE TO ORDER
