It’s an ironic and not so funny world which can see the extraordinary efforts of our nation’s Founders, to create a system of checks and balances, a balance of political and governmental powers, each to forever keep watch on the other in protection of the people’s inalienable rights as itself, an “unconstitutional” act. But this is the world we live in today…

Last week, the Mississippi State Legislature was the first to introduce The Balance of Powers Act currently sweeping across all state legislatures, in their effort to protect and preserve the rights of the State and the people currently under direct and extreme assault from their federal government.

In HB490, members of the Mississippi legislature grabbed the lead in a nationwide rush to shut down the “unconstitutional” acts of an increasingly tyrannical federal government. Within hours, local leftist news reporters had dragged out a couple “law professors” to quote in opposition, using the same old false claims of unbridled and unchecked federal supremacy to attack any state legislator brave enough to dare challenge the almighty Fed.

A day later, well-known leftist blog Daily KOS was busy regurgitating the blatant hogwash that a constitutional balance of powers is “unconstitutional,” and just in case the people are too smart to fall for that line of nonsense, it’s “racist” too. In the immortal words of Gomer Pyle, “surprise-surprise”… These so-called “experts” were about to prove Thomas Jefferson right…

“The judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working underground to undermine our Constitution from a co-ordinate of a general and special government to a general supreme one alone. This will lay all things at their feet. … I will say, that “against this every man should raise his voice,” and, more, should uplift his arm …” —Letter to Thomas Ritchie, Sept. 1820

193 years later, “expert law professionals” and their leftist blogosphere minions would prove Jefferson dead right, as they worked to convince American citizens that the constitution itself is “unconstitutional.”

Robert McElvaine, professor of history at Millsaps College, said all this bill will accomplish is to put Mississippi up for ridicule. “ ‘The Neutralization of Federal Law’?” he said. “I am astounded to see such a measure introduced in the 21st century. Do the authors of the bill see Mississippi as part of the United States?”

Of course Mississippi legislators see their state as part of the United States, which means they see themselves as a party to the compact which establishes the United States, the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.

The question is — what does the good professor think the Founders meant in the Tenth Amendment? – “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Does Professor Robert McElvaine understand that the Mississippi bill does not seek to neutralize “constitutional acts” of the federal government, but rather the “unconstitutional acts” only? Or does the professor think that all federal acts are “constitutional?” Or does the professor really think that the Charters of Freedom died at some point in history, becoming nothing but a relic?

Be very careful professor, if the Constitution and Bill of Rights no longer exist, then the people and the states have no obligation to the federal government at all, including an obligation to follow any of its laws or pay any taxes. So, which way do you want it professor? It exists, or it doesn’t exist?

The local news report gets this part right – The proposedJoint Legislative Committee on the Neutralization of Federal Law would review existing federal laws and executive orders and recommend those to be “neutralized.” If the majority of lawmakers back the recommendation, Mississippi “and its citizens shall not recognize or be obligated to live under the statute, mandate or executive order.”

Imagine that… A State could neutralize any “unconstitutional act” of the runaway federal government, based upon the State’s Rights protected by the Tenth Amendment in the Bill of Rights. Is the Tenth Amendment “constitutional?” Let’s ask another “expert…”

George Cochran, professor at the University of the Mississippi School of Law, said – “it’s obvious the bill is unconstitutional.” – “It all boils down to the same completely discredited argument,” he said. “When John C. Calhoun and South Carolina attempted to nullify federal law in the 1830s, President Andrew Jackson forcefully rejected the concept.” – said Cochran.

Is the professor suggesting that states do not have Tenth Amendment Rights? Is he suggesting that the states have rights, but no right to enforce those rights? What are these so-called “experts” saying? Are they saying that the Bill of Rights is no longer in force or in affect? If they are, I’m sure this will come as a surprise to even many of their leftist minions, who have fought for Constitutional and Civil Rights under the Bill of Rights for more than 200 years now…

Oh wait, we have a Civil Rights “expert” weighing in…

Civil rights veteran Leslie Burl McLemore said the bill strikes him as “grandstanding.”

Director of the Fannie Lou Hamer National Institute on Citizenship and Democracy at Jackson State University, McLemore said, “In subtle and not so subtle ways in Mississippi — and a good bit of the South — we fight the Civil War every day. The drum-beating, rabid right-wingers long for those years, but we won’t revisit those years any time soon.”

So, the Balance of Powers established by the US Constitution and Bill of Rights is not only “unconstitutional,” – it’s an act of Civil War era “racism” too? We may revisit those years sooner than you think Director McLemore. What do you think happens in American once you convince the American people that their Constitution and Bill of Rights no longer exist? Why do you think Americans will refuse to be disarmed by your left-wing friends in the White House?

Has anyone noticed that all of these so-called “constitutional experts” are Democrats, fully supportive of the Democratic Party’s current Democratic Socialism and the right of their runaway federal government to run roughshod over the states and the people at will?

Is it the constitutionally grounded text of the Mississippi Balance of Powers Act designed to enforce existing state and individual rights that the “expert” left-wing nuts object to so vigorously? Or is it the Bill of Rights itself?

One need look no further than the current massive assault on all state and individual rights coming from the Democratic Left today, to understand that it is in fact theConstitution and Bill of Rights they object to, going so far as to directly attack the Second Amendment Rights of all law-abiding citizens while arming known terrorists all over the world.

To fully grasp the anti-American agenda of the political left today, look no further that Rahm Emanuel’s recent blackmail letter to our nation’s largest banks, in an effort to stop banking relations with gun manufacturers, cutting off the supply line to American citizens as the federal government buys up record stockpiles of weapons.

The people are witnessing with their own eyes, why states like Mississippi are rushing to protect all state and individual rights with the passage of The Balance of Powers Act. They are also witnessing the extreme left-wing “experts” like those quoted here today, who will kill the Constitution and Bill of Rights by simply declaring both “unconstitutional,” in their scholarly “expert” opinions.

Not so fast though…

Numerous other states are working on their own versions of the Model Legislation.

Not so long ago, left-wingers thought Michigan would never become a Right to Work state, as ground zero for corrupt labor unions.

A Federal appeals court just ruled Obama’s “recess appointments” unconstitutional and thereby, illegal, demonstrating that not all members of the law profession have dismissed the constitution.

Times, they are a changing… Necessity is the mother of invention my friends. It wasn’t until the federal government started behaving in tyrannical fashion, shredding the Constitution and Bill of Rights in a thousand assaults on state and individual rights every day, that the states found it necessary to take matters into their own hands with The Balance of Powers Act.

The “experts” seem to have forgotten that the US Constitution and the Federal Government exists at the pleasure of the states which created it and gave it limited authority. They seem to have forgotten that it is the union of the sovereign states that make up The United States and that as Joseph Story reminded everyone in 1833 – “In the next place, the state governments are, by the very theory of the constitution, essential constituent parts of the general government. They can exist without the latter, but the latter cannot exist without them.”

The current federal administration has not only sought to unconstitutionally seize control over every aspect of individual lives and the economy, they have acted to destroy the Charters of Freedom altogether. They have also driven our nation to more than $16 trillion in federal debt.

But that is a drop in the bucket to their financial woes if in fact, the “legal experts” are right. If the Constitution and Bill of Rights no longer exist in force or affect, then the union and the federal government itself no longer exists, or at least, no citizen or state is obligated to abide by any of the laws, regulations and taxes that can only exist under the terms and conditions of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Clearly, it is not possible for the Bill of Rights to be “unconstitutional.” So, the strategy of the left is to discredit and belittle anyone who attempts to uphold and defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights as “not knowing what they are doing.”

Thankfully, our Founders wrote the Charters of Freedom in plain simple English, so that any 3rd grader could read and comprehend its true meaning without the help of any so-called “experts.” As a result, even if legal beagles don’t know what the Founders meant by “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” — And “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”— Citizens with above a 3rd grade reading comprehension level do.

Leftists want to attach the Constitutional Balance of Powers Act to the “nullifiers” they have already successfully labeled “crackpots.” Why not… The Balance of Powers Act covers a thousand “nullification” bills and then some. Of course those who want to leave the Constitution and Bill of Rights in the dust bin of historical relics will use any means to do it.

However, leftists are not the only “constitutional experts” in America.

If the left-wing nuts really want a public debate over the constitutionality of The Balance of Powers Act, I hereby challenge them to just such an event.

Any left-wing legal propagandist willing to publicly assert that the Balance of Powers Act is in any way “unconstitutional” can contact the research team made up of legal professional that drafted it by using the contact button at The North American Law Center. They will be happy to arrange an open debate on these matters, videotaped and published for ALL American citizens to view and draw their own conclusions.

I doubt any of the legal propagandists will dare show for such a debate, but what a wonderful event that would be… Instead, they will attack individuals involved in preserving the Constitutional Republic – make false claims that the Bill of Rights is somehow “unconstitutional” – or no longer in force or affect.

I warn these folks one last time to be careful what they wish for… You are not going to like how a lawless society no longer committed to a compact with the federal government they created, manage those who assault their rights. You will come armed with your precedents and procedures, but the people will be armed with their Second Amendment. This is not a fight you want… Such things are better settled peacefully.

For more information on passing the Balance of Powers Act in your state, contact The North American Law Center.

Great Squeeze on King World News


 Massive Squeeze Coming As WGC Confirms Gold-Backed Yuan

 Massive Squeeze Coming As WGC Confirms Gold-Backed Yuan

1-27-2013 12-54-12 PM

Now that’s what I call a great squeeze!

However, I doubt if it’s going to distract investors for very long, as China has plans to make all Americans impotent shortly.

King World News is pleased to break the news first in the world for our global readers that the World Gold Council has now confirmed the Chinese are going to back the yuan with gold.  Today a legend in the business, Keith Barron, who consults with major companies around the world and is responsible for one of the largest gold discoveries in the last quarter century, informed KWN of this development and also stated, “… the gold and silver bulls are going to begin to trample the bears at some point in the near future.”

Here is what Barron had to say:  “This is what I have heard firsthand regarding the silver shortage.  I spoke to a dealer where I purchase gold and silver in the United States.  He just told me that immediately after the Presidential Inauguration his firm immediately began selling the hell out of monster boxes of US silver eagles.”

Keith Barron continues:

“This dealer informed me that business is absolutely crazy right now and he can’t keep product on the shelf because it’s flying out the door.  I would also like to mention two items which are very important that the KWN readers should be aware of.

The first one is regarding an investment group….

Obama and the Redhead


SOURCE: E-mail from a Republican friend!

Obama was looking for a prostitute.

He found three in a local pub, a blonde, a brunette and a redhead.

To the blonde he said, I am the President of the United States

Now how much would it cost me to spend some time with you?’

She replied, $200.’

To the brunette he asked the same question.

Her reply was $100.

He then asked the redhead…

The reply was,

Mr. President, if you can get my skirt up as high as my taxes,

My panties as low as my wages,

Get that thing of yours as hard as the times we are living in,

And keep it rising like the price of gas,

Keep me warmer than it is in my apartment and

Screw me the way you have the retirees,

Then you can have it for free, like the immigrants.


This all occurred before Obama was appointed president, and the redhead was a drag queen.

US rating agency Egan Jones BANNED for telling truth



Scam complete: the US government takes a page from Diocletian’s book…

 Reporting From: Guayaquil, Ecuador 

Early in the 4th century, Emperor Diocletian issued an infamous decree to control spiraling wages and prices in the rapidly deteriorating Roman Empire.

As part of his edict, Diocletian commanded that any merchant or customer caught violating the new price structures would be put to death.

This is an important lesson from history, and a trend that has been repeated numerous times. When nations are in terminal economic decline, governments will stop at nothing to keep the party going just a little bit longer.

I thought of Diocletian’s desperation a few days ago when I read about the recent sanctions imposed on US rating agency Egan-Jones. It’s a similar story–

For years, major rating agencies (S&P, Moody’s, and Fitch) have championed the outright fraud of our financial system by pinning pristine credit ratings on insolvent governments and their heavily inflated currencies.

In doing so, the rating agencies are effectively claiming that the greatest debtor that has ever existed in the history of the world is nearly ‘risk-free’.

Clearly this is a ridiculous assertion. With a debt level over 100% of GDP, the US is so broke that the government must borrow money just to pay interest on the money it’s already borrowed. They’ve lost over a trillion dollars a year since 2008, yet they still spend money on things like drones and body scanners. It’s crazy.

As with any good scam, the government must maintain public confidence. The moment someone says ‘the Emperor has no clothes,’ that shallow, fragile confidence will come crashing down and expose the scam. Dissent must be vigorously and swiftly pursued.

So when S&P finally downgraded the US one notch in August 2011, the SEC and Justice Department announced that S&P was under investigation, just two weeks later.

Egan-Jones, a smaller rating agency, has been even more aggressive, downgrading the US credit rating three times in 18 months. And while the federal government may not have imposed Diocletian’s death penalty, they are just as willing to squash dissent.

In a country that churns out thousands of pages of new regulations each week, it’s easy to find a reason to go after someone. As you read this letter, in fact, you are probably in violation of at least a dozen regulatory offenses.

In the case of Egan-Jones, the SEC brought administrative action against the agency within two weeks of their second downgrade. And a few days ago, the case was settled.

I’m sure you have already guessed the ending: Egan-Jones is banned from for the next 18 months from rating US government debt. They’ve effectively been silenced from telling the truth.

The lesson here is obvious. Just as in Roman times, bankrupt nations today will stop at nothing to keep up the scam just a little bit longer.

Given that all this is happening at a time when Congress is voting to suspend the debt ceiling entirely, these actions are the clearest sign yet of just how desperate the government has become.

Could the warning signs be any more obvious?

January 27, 2013

Last week I was at our state capitol in Austin, Texas. I was there with my dear friend, Thelma Taormina, Founder & Chair, We The People Are The 9-12 Association, Inc., in Houston and Steve King, Founder – Texas Tea Party and the Tea Party Movement. Steve has been active at the state level for the past 30 years and has helped me understand how things are done in the Texas State Legislature since I’m a California transplant. Like Steve, Thelma is on a first name basis with many state representatives and a few senators because that’s what grassroots activism is all about. Personal contact with those state reps while they’re in and out of session.

We went to the capitol to speak with representatives about various issues. In particular, one thing I did discuss with a state rep I’ve worked with on an unrelated issue is the ‘smart’ grid. The grid that is not smart. The day it gets hacked will make hurricane Sandy look like a blip on the screen. There will be no ATM machines to get money for food, no gasoline pumps working; it will be a nightmare beyond comprehension for tens and tens of millions of Americans who have no idea what the ‘smart’ grid is or how they have been made vulnerable by greedy corporations:

Hacking Expert David Chalk Joins Urgent Call to Halt Smart Grid – April 12, 2012

“100% certainty of catastrophic failure of energy grid within 3 years unless course is changed”

VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The vulnerability of the energy industry’s new wireless smart grid will inevitably lead to lights out for everyone, according to leading cyber expert David Chalk. In an online interview for an upcoming documentary film entitled ‘ Take Back Your Power‘, Chalk says the entire power grid will be at risk to being taken down by cyber attack, and if installations continue it’s only a matter of time. “Unless we wake up and realize what we’re doing, there is 100% certainty of total catastrophic failure of the entire power infrastructure within 3 years.”

“We’re in a state of crisis,” said Chalk. “The front door is open and there is no lock to be had. There is not a power meter or device on the grid that is protected from hacking – if not already infected – with some sort of trojan horse that can cause the grid to be shut down or completely annihilated.”

* Life After An EMP Attack: No Power, No Food, No Transportation, No Banking And No Internet
* Government wakes up to EMP threat
Feds move to protect U.S. from nature’s version of catastrophic weapon
* Chinese hackers have control of US power grid

Putting the entire United States under one umbrella is incredibly stupid. If anyone thinks the incredible inept bunch of bureau-rats in Washington, DC., know what they’re doing, they should think again. I was happy to find out Texas is independent. Those of us who have researched the ‘smart’ meter disaster know without question those meters are tied to Agenda 21 and so is the ‘smart’ grid. It is the big link in the chain and it’s not good for America.

While I was there, I visited the offices of six house members about a particular gun bill that has been introduced. None of the reps were in, so I spoke with their staff. It’s a nice feel good bill to protect the Second Amendment, however, as I explained to those staff members, it’s just another Band Aid that will not stop the gun grabbers. I also ask if they knew Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama did not sign a single executive order relating to the slaughter at Sandy Hook Elementary School? Every one of them looked at me with a blank stare. A few said they didn’t know and were shocked. They were under the impression Soetoro had actually signed 23 EOs.

Last week the splashy headlines were everywhere on the Internet: (emphasis mine below).

Rand Paul pledges to ‘nullify’ President Obama’s executive orders

“Sen. Rand Paul is pledging to undo some of President Barack Obama’s executive orders on guns that the Kentucky Republican believes overreach. “In this bill we will nullify anything the president does that smacks of legislation,” Rand said Wednesday on Fox’s “Hannity,” referencing his legislation that is slated to be introduced in Congress next week. “And there are several of the executive orders that appear as if he’s writing new law. That cannot happen.”

Obama Signs 23 Executive Orders Aimed at Gun Violence

“Among the executive orders, which do not require congressional approval, are mandates for better enforcement of gun laws, better reporting from federal agencies to improve background checks and the appointment of B. Todd Jones, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, to that position in a permanent capacity.”

Wanna be journalists who simply picked up what they read on the Internet without verifying the information put out more of the same:

The Second Amendment and Our Right to Self Defense by Roseann Salanitri “Among the 23 Gun Control Executive Orders recently signed by Mr. Obama, #4 is even more disconcerting when considering Mr. Holder’s interpretation of words. This Order states:…”

Salanitri bought the media’s lies and obviously feels checking facts is something she either doesn’t know how to do or ignores. “…#4 Is even more disconcerting….” doesn’t even exist. Sloppy work hurts everyone who reads and believes what the author has written.

Those signed up for my free email alerts already know this, but if you go to the White House web site to the listing of Executive Orders, the last one posted is:

December 27, 2012

Executive Order — Adjustments of Certain Rates of Pay

Go to Proclamations:

January 16, 2013
Presidential Memorandum — Engaging in Public Health Research on the Causes and Prevention of Gun Violence

Then go to Presidential Memoranda:

January 16, 2013
Presidential Memorandum — Engaging in Public Health Research on the Causes and Prevention of Gun Violence
January 16, 2013
Presidential Memorandum — Improving Availability of Relevant Executive Branch Records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System
January 16, 2013
Presidential Memorandum — Tracing of Firearms in Connection with Criminal Investigations

The above represents the sum total of Soetoro’s actions regarding guns relating to the slaughter at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

As you can see, there isn’t a single EO as falsely represented in articles and columns.

Proclamations, Memorandums and Memoranda are called ‘presidential actions’, not Executive Orders. Legally, there is a huge difference.

One rep I did have a meeting with didn’t respond to my question, but it was apparent he did not know. Neither did a high level staff member of the state executive branch we spoke with in a lengthy meeting. No one likes to feel they’re stupid or don’t know something you do and I didn’t treat any of them that way. All we are trying to do is bring forth facts and go from there.

Back to making the rounds

We visited with one particular representative and high level staff for a member of the Executive Branch about the four bills we are trying to get introduced and passed. Those were very positive meetings.

However, it’s very discouraging when you discover elected officials are completely ignorant about critical issues like our monetary system. In one of the endless hallways, Steve and I ran into a representative he knows who was walking with two other men. Steve introduced me and gave forth we were there about our four bills; a constitutional sound money bill being at the top of the list. I tried to give a few polite sentences about the continuing devaluation of the dollar, the “Fed” and what will happen when the whole scam implodes. I tried to begin explaining about an alternative currency system and what will happen if Texas doesn’t get a constitutional sound money bill passed this session. One of the two men piped up with a comment disparaging any idea about returning to a gold standard. The other ignorant ass remarked “we can’t be printing presses.” Ha, ha!

Obviously none of them has read Art. 1, Sec. 10, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution: ” No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation; grant letters of marque and reprisal; coin money; emit bills of credit; make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts; pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts, or grant any title of nobility.”

The state rep then piped up and said, paraphrasing, We have the infrastructure and good jobs and will be fine. You could have knocked me over with a feather. What on earth does that have to do with the disabilities of our monetary system? Steve, sensing the steam starting to come out of my ears, deftly took over with some “would like to talk with you later about this” and we left their company.

Mentioning the constitutional militia in my travels brought looks of someone who just sucked a lemon. Relating that Arizona’s state legislature last year passed a militia bill (even though it was rightfully vetoed by Gov. Brewer) brought even more looks that said the person listening to me had no idea what I was talking about except I used the nasty word: militia.

I know this is going to sound like I’m defending uninformed legislators and their staffs, but let me say it’s more like reality. Our legislators are only in session not to exceed 140 days every other odd year. Texas, Nevada, North Dakota and Montana — all gone by May this year and won’t return until January 2015. Most legislators have careers outside the capitol which they return to when the session ends. I know you probably have a job or even own your own business. You know how full every day is and trying to keep up with everything going on ripping this country apart. Even I can’t keep up with everything even though I work at home.

The other problem is where the politicians are getting their information from. Every office we visited had FOX News on. ABC, CBS and NBC, commonly referred to as the “big three” as well as CNN and MSNBC are nothing more than propaganda machines. Anyone who expects to get the truth on any issue from those sources will remain ignorant of the facts. For many years, FOX News Network was generally pretty good about reporting. Their commentator slots were informative to a degree. For too many years now, that is not the case. Sean Hannity is woefully ignorant of solutions to our most pressing problems as is the king of bloviators, Bill O’Reilly.

Occasionally, I get email from conservatives who use profanity to attack me for pointing out factual errors made by Hannity and O’Reilly, who have a combined nightly viewer ship of about five million Americans who they keep in the dark. Aren’t regular viewers tired of the same, worn out guests like Bernie Goldberg and sexual deviant, Liz Cheney, daughter of former VP, Dick Cheney? Why is it those two, or even Greta Van Sustren, never have Dr. Edwin Vieira on to speak about the disabilities of our monetary system or former IRS CID agent, Joe Banister, to speak of the fraudulent misapplication of the federal income tax or Richard Gage (Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth)?

Why is it they have the same old line up with the same old political tennis match – Demorats vs Republicrats? Where is any hard hitting pieces about Agenda 21? Never a peep about that diabolical agenda. I only monitor those “shows” for a minute here and there because there’s nothing there I haven’t heard a million times over the past 22 years in the trenches. The most critical issues are never discussed, but O’Reilly has time for some silly quiz segment with other FOX morning hosts.

There wasn’t enough time to discuss other issues state legislatures are not even looking at because they’re busy with routine bills dealing with things like education funding, changes in criminal law or what have you. They’re also trying to fend off unconstitutional laws that don’t exist like Obamacare. Since Soetoro usurped the office of president, anything he has signed is null and void.

Those legislators are not stupid. I’ve been around enough of them over the years and I can honestly say, and Thelma and Steve feel the same way, there are many in our legislature who do care. They are just as worried about what’s going on as we are. But, we the people who have spent years researching and understanding critical issues are far more informed than they are and that needs to change. The only way that will happen is you and me.

What are some of the other issues? I gave a list to everyone we visited: Aerosol spraying of our skies. It’s not a conspiracy theory. The myth of anchor babies, vote fraud, identity theft, Monsanto – the poisoning of our food and soil – genetically modified seeds and food; industrialized hemp and raw milk, which involves something way too many state legislators don’t have any knowledge about: federal jurisdiction. And, last, but not least: sever all ties with the unconstitutional Federal Department of Education. That means some major funding adjustments because the states can no longer take money from the criminals in DC if they are to remain sovereign and put education back where it belongs.

We must concentrate on the state capitols. Only someone in denial has any faith the liars, crooks and thieves who serve in the Outlaw Congress are going to stop the rape of we the people or stop the assault on our rights. Yes, we do have to fight back against really bad bills by calling before a vote. If we do nothing, nothing gets done.

Please take if from those of us who have been in the trenches: Numbers bring clout when it comes to getting appointments with state reps and senators. I know the national tea party organizations were co-opted years ago in an effort to keep them uninformed and herded in the desired direction. But, do not lump in all tea party chapters as not worth becoming involved with because they are getting educated on the critical issues and how government systems actually work. Twenty-two years ago I didn’t know what I do and I’m still learning.

If you live in Texas, contact Steve and hopefully he can connect you with a tea party chapter in your area. If you live in Texas, not just Houston, contact Thelma. Her association is huge and growing in numbers. They are active and would welcome you.

Texas is now a target of the Democratic/Communist Party USA:

Democrats launch plan to turn Texas blue

“National Democrats are taking steps to create a large-scale independent group aimed at turning traditionally conservative Texas into a prime electoral battleground, crafting a new initiative to identify and mobilize progressive voters in the rapidly-changing state, strategists familiar with the plans told POLITICO.

“The organization, dubbed “Battleground Texas,” plans to engage the state’s rapidly growing Latino population, as well as African-American voters and other Democratic-leaning constituencies that have been underrepresented at the ballot box in recent cycles. Two sources said the contemplated budget would run into the tens of millions of dollars over several years – a project Democrats hope has enough heft to help turn what has long been an electoral pipe dream into reality. At the center of the effort is Jeremy Bird, formerly the national field director for President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign, who was in Austin last week to confer with local Democrats about the project.”

I encourage you to read the entire article, Texans. The political ideology of the Democratic Party is in full lock step with the goals of the Communist International and Communist Party USA. They’ve laid their plans for our state. Unless the people of Texas unite we will find ourselves on the same sinking Titanic out west called California and the same moral cesspool called Hollywood – especially Texas’ schools. Remember what Lenin said: “Destroy the family, you destroy the country.”

Regardless of what state you live in or what your group or organization is called, I hope we can all focus on curing the cancers instead of allowing our state legislatures to continue treating the symptoms. As I have said for so many years: Boots on the ground and stay the course. No matter your work or school schedule, every group or organization has something effective each of us can do for the cause. Get connected.

Appendix: Four bills we took to the legislature along with critical exhibits. Print them out or put on a CD and get them to your state rep and senator either in person or with a cover letter. Then, your group or organization keep following up with phone calls. It is what we are doing here in Texas.

If there is one concept on Earth that has been the absolute bane of human existence (besides global elitism), it would have to be the concept of the “majority opinion”. The moment men began refusing to develop their own world views without first asking “What does everyone else think?”, they set themselves up for an endless future of failures.

We are, of course, very social beings, and our natures drive us to seek those of like mind and spirit in what some might call a “tribal imperative”. However, this imperative to organize is often manipulated by those who understand the psychological mechanisms behind it. Oligarchs and tyrants abuse and exploit the inherent social natures of the people in order to fool them into abandoning their individuality for the sake of the group, or some abstract and dishonest ideal. When successful, the organization of a culture becomes bitter and twisted, changing from a tribe or a community of sovereign individuals, into a nightmare collective of soulless sheep.

Human beings desperately want to belong, but, they also desperately want to understand the environment around them. Often, the desire to belong and the desire to know the truth conflict. In some societies, in order to be accepted, one must give up on his search for truth and avoid eliciting the anger of others. This causes a severe mental and emotional disturbance within a population. In order to reconcile their conflicting needs within a system that does not nurture their quest for transparency, they tend to unconsciously cling to the “majority view” as if their very existence depends on it. The idea of the majority view or the “mainstream”, gives people the sense that they are a part of a group, and at the same time, gives them the illusion of being informed.
Their rationale is:

If most of the population believes something to be true, then, by “statistical law”, it most likely is true. Those who do not share in the majority opinion are therefore in opposition to statistical law; meaning they are behind the times, social deviants, or just plain crazy..

The problem is, history has shown that at pivotal moments in a society the “majority opinion” is usually WRONG. Any progress we do enjoy as a species is almost always due to the actions of tireless aware minorities, or even a lone man or woman who saw what the rest of us could not.

The greatest discoveries and truths have always been the product of individual thought and effort, numerous individuals working on parallel paths to generate new pieces of knowledge or more balanced and principled methods of living. There has never been such a thing as a collectivist realization, or a collectivist truth, and there never will be. Collectives do not think creatively or honestly. Their only concern is the survival of the system at all costs, and usually this requires a foundation of lies.

As a nation or culture edges towards collectivist tyranny, the battle-cry of the “majority opinion” will drown out all other reasonable voices. It has happened before, and unfortunately, it will happen again. In America today, I believe we are nearing the moment where the mass view becomes the only acceptable or legally sanctioned view. With the 2nd Amendment issue alone, the most common argument by anti-gun proponents is that “the majority opinion is on their side”. I’m here to point out that the “majority opinion” is, in fact, an illusion, and completely irrelevant. Here is why…

Most “Majorities” Are Fake Majorities

A recent poll on gun rights touted by Reuters stated that over 74% of the American public supported new and stricter gun laws including a ban on “automatic” (do they mean semi-automatic?) weapons:

Reuters pretends as if the poll is a sweeping vindication of anti-gun advocates, but what is the deeper story behind the poll? Reuters waits until the very last line of the article to mention that only 559 people participated, which hardly seems like a large enough pool to determine the overall position of the entire American public. Who were these people who were polled? Where were they polled? What questions were they asked and how were the questions posed? All of these factors can be manipulated during polling to produce a desired end result.

In April of 2012, a similar poll stated a somewhat similar case, but also relented that a “majority” of Americans supported most pro-gun positions, including conceal carry, and the need for civilians to intervene during a criminal event: 

What the polls do not outline is the fact that many people are undecided on a number of details, and that there is no clear “majority” on any of them. Polling methods are indicative of the mainstream farce. In most cases, when a mass of people are presented as a “majority”, we do not know exactly how that conclusion was arrived at. Who decided these people were of the same mind and how?

Beyond this problem, those people who claim to be a part of the majority, are sometimes ill informed and do not have all the facts at their disposal. If there is indeed such a thing as any majority, it could only be the majority of people who do not know what to think! So, instead of the gun issue, for instance, being a fight between a “majority” of anti-gun advocates versus a “minority” of pro-gun advocates, we are actually looking at a fight between two educated MINORITIES, pro-gun and anti-gun, pro-liberty and anti-liberty, with an uneducated and oblivious public in-between.

To gun control propagandists I would point out that being able to lie to the unaware and con them into parroting your talking points is not the same as “having the majority on your side”. There may be some utility to retaining an army of bleating sheep, but in the end what do sheep really do beyond bleat, except eat, sleep, watch, and wait to see which way the winds blow…?

In A Republic The Majority View Does Not Matter

America was established as a Republic, not a Democracy, and in a republic the natural and inborn rights of the people, as embodied in the U.S. Constitution, are not subject to the mood swings of the masses. Each individual has certain rights, including the right to firearms and self-defense, REGARDLESS of what the so-called mainstream believes. That is to say, even if 99.9% of all people decided tomorrow that the right to free speech should be abolished, this would still be unconstitutional. The .1% who retain the right to free speech are not required to adhere to such law.

The same rule applies to the 2nd Amendment and gun ownership. When shills for gun control like Pierce Morgan claim that the majority supports them, what they don’t seem to grasp in their collectivist fervor is that even if this were true, it is a meaningless sentiment. Our rights as Americans are not allowed to be held hostage by 51% of the population (or any other claimed percentage). This is not how a republic operates.

Regardless of what is decided in the near term on gun control, we as citizens, protected by the legal shield of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, are not morally required to comply, even if the “majority” says we are. Mob rule is no rule!

The Majority Is Usually Wrong

As stated previously, the majority of people are generally ill-informed until the fight for a particular issue is long over. Only when the dust has settled do the masses take a side (usually the side of the winner). When the day finally arrives where we live within a system that nurtures free individual thought and our political leadership no longer seeks to manipulate the people in subversive fashion, then, perhaps, the situation will change. However, for now, the “majority” cannot be trusted to determine the course of the future for every single one of us. They are too open to exploitation, and too easy to sway.

While many see being a part of the mainstream as a safe method for remaining “in the know”, the opposite usually holds true. The mainstream is instead a place where people go so that they don’t have to think, and such an environment rarely finds its foundation standing firmly on truthful grounds.

If the majority was really a legitimate deciding factor in the course of history, then the first American Revolution would have never occurred in the first place. That fight was won by a minority of men and women who knew they were right in the face of a malicious world power structure supported by an ignorant subsection of the populous. Generations to come would be influenced by a small group of people who stood on honor and principle in the face of the tyranny of the “majority”.

Our True Enemy Is An Elitist Minority

Elite oligarchies are notorious for using the masses as a shield for their criminal behavior. Whenever an atrocity is committed, the elite claim it was for the “greater good”. That it was done in the name of “national security”. That the “majority” is in agreement with their methods. They do this in order to artificially inflate the size of the obstacle in our path and make us feel as though we stand against “the whole world”. They do this to make us imagine that we are too small to make a difference.

This tactic is also designed to redirect our energies away from the oligarchs and towards a nameless faceless mob of people who may or may not be aware that they are being used as cannon fodder.

As much as Liberty Movement proponents and 2nd Amendment guardians may despise the naïve prattle of the so-called “Left”, and the fact that their propaganda seems to be spreading like a malignant tumor across the country, from gun grabbing to socialized nanny government, we must remember that they are not who we are really at war with. They are merely spectators in the arena, and though their chanting against us might make us feel as though our opponent has won favor, in the end all will be decided by force of will between the two gladiators, and the bread and circuses will matter little.

The fight for liberty ultimately has nothing to do with awakening a “majority of people”. Rather, our goal should be to gather a tireless and courageous minority that can weather the coming storm. If we endure the crisis and remove the anti-liberty minority from the picture, the dumbfounded masses caught with their pants down from the very beginning will in the end simply follow along as they always do.

I have heard it argued recently that the gun control issue in particular is one of wider social implications. That pro-gun advocates are too “selfish” to see the big picture, and that we do not care about the safety of our nation as a whole. This is the collectivist methodology at work, utilizing the false “majority” as a tool for oppression. The fact is, Constitutionalists are the ONLY people in this country today that see the big picture, and the only people who are not thinking merely of themselves when it comes to the safety of our society. The average anti-gun socialist is acting not out of reason as they pretend, but out of fear. They want us to relinquish our rights so that they can retain the illusion of safety.

Behind this drive for a deluded sense of mainstream “compassion” and “compromise” is a concerted effort by the establishment to destroy the last barrier to overt centralization; the armed citizen. The language for this is already being carefully implanted:

We are a “fringe element”. We are “narcissists”. We are “barbarians”. We are clinging to the last vestiges of an archaic philosophy which no longer applies to our modern and “civilized” age. The vast “majority” is against us, and we should shut up, comply, abdicated the fight, and take our seat at the collectivist table while one still remains open to us.

Okay…so we’re barbarians. We’re not interested in a “seat at the table”. We are not interested in participating in the lie. We are not interested in playing a bit part in the grand faux theater of the “global community”. If the majority of Americans really do believe that the death of the Constitution is the best course for our culture, then the majority has gone clinically insane, or pathetically soft, and has abandoned all conscience. We will remain in our little “minority”, and we will put a stop to the progression of collectivized despotism without them, and they can do what they please in the meantime, as long as they stay out of our way.

By Dr. Carl Parnell, Ed.,D

December 11, 2012

America’s Ship of State, the U.S.S. America, was commissioned on May 25, 1787; it was christened on September 17, 1787. The first commander was George Washington. The inaugural voyage began April 30, 1789. His speech of acceptance of his commandership took place in New York City at the Federal Building on Wall Street. An excerpt of his speech plainly acknowledges what he saw as the driving force of his commandership. Commander Washington said:

Such being the impressions under which I have, in obedience to the public summons, repaired to the present station, it would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States a Government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes, and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success the functions allotted to his charge. In tendering this homage to the Great Author of every public and private good, I assure myself that it expresses your sentiments not less than my own, nor those of my fellow-citizens at large less than either. No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency; and in the important revolution just accomplished in the system of their united government the tranquil deliberations and voluntary consent of so many distinct communities from which the event has resulted can not be compared with the means by which most governments have been established without some return of pious gratitude, along with an humble anticipation of the future blessings which the past seem to presage. These reflections, arising out of the present crisis, have forced themselves too strongly on my mind to be suppressed. You will join with me, I trust, in thinking that there are none under the influence of which the proceedings of a new and free government can more auspiciously commence.

Therefore, based on Commander Washington’s own words, he recognized that the success of the United States then and in the future would be the providential guidance of the Invisible Hand of God in all the affairs of America’s new constitutional government. He also hoped that the people that he commanded would support his political ideology through the years of his commandership of America’s figurative Ship of State.

But, how was America’s Ship of State affected by Commander Washington’s views of America becoming an independent power? According to Wikipedia, Commander Washington said,

There are four things, which I humbly conceive, are essential to the well being, I may even venture to say, to the existence of the United States as an independent power:

 An indissoluble union of the states under one federal head.

 A sacred regard to public justice.

• The adoption of a proper peace establishment.

 The prevalence of that pacific and friendly disposition among the people of the United States which will induce them to forget their local prejudices and policies, to make those mutual concessions which are requisite to the general prosperity, and in some instances, to sacrifice their individual advantages to the interest of the community.

Therefore, as indicated by Commander Washington, he believed that the individual states should be united together into a union that could not be divided into separate entities. Of course, this union should have one Federal commander that would be in charge of keeping the states united and indivisible, while, at the same time, ensuring that peace and justice should become the central focus of the nation. As a result, the people would be concerned about the general prosperity of the nation, even if it meant that they had to sacrifice some of their individual needs in order to meet the needs the nation as a whole. However, this could not be achieved unless the American people forgot their prejudices, which would prevent them from seeing the true character and uniqueness of all Americans.

Of course, after eight years in office, Commander Washington decided to give up his commandership. Therefore, Commander Washington gave a farewell address which contained the epitome of his political beliefs. If the new leaders would take his advice, America’s Ship of State should sail successfully forever. His advice on how to operate America’s government and how to keep America strong as a nation included the following do’s and don’ts:

1. The necessity and importance of a national union of states with a strong central government.

2. The value of the Constitution and the rule of law.

3. The influence of political parties and bitter partisanship in domestic politics.

4. The proper virtues of a republican people.

5. The need for morality and religious principle as a popular spring of popular government.

6. The prohibition of entering permanent, long-term entangling alliances with foreign nations.

Therefore, since Commander Washington left America a great political heritage and many sound principles of a workable government after he gave up his commandership, let’s take a closer look at each of his political do’s and don’ts and whether or not they exist in America today. Also, if they do not exist today, what has replaced them and, as a result of replacing Washington’s political heritage, has America’s Ship of State begun to sink?

First, does America still have a national union of states with a strong central government? America still has a strong central government today. Unfortunately, it is much more powerful than it was during the era of George Washington. In fact, the central government is attempting to control every aspect of an America citizen’s life to the point of turning the United States into a socialist nation, with the government watching every move that they make, regulating every business and corporation, and burdening every American with an extremely high tax bill each year. As far as strong national union of states is concerned, America is on the verge of dissolving itself. Since the 2012 General Elections, many citizens of the fifty states have petitioned the Federal government to permit their states to break away from the Union. Of course, none of the state governments of these citizens themselves would actually withdraw from the United States. But, it does show that a large percentage of Americans are beleaguered with a central government that has become entirely too powerful and too domineering over the governed who are responsible for permitting the government to rule over them. It also shows that many Americans do not agree with the itinerary that the current commander of America’s Ship of State is following, an itinerary that is responsible for leading it into the dark, uncharted waters of socialism. Therefore, Commander George Washington, the first Commander of America’s Ship of State, would roll over in his grave if he knew how the government was treating the governed.

Second, does America still value the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law? Most Americans still value the U.S. Constitution and the Rule of Law, which implies that every citizen and every ruler is subject to the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land. However, many of America’s elected and appointed leaders do not value the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. Since the Constitution prevents these leaders from putting their will upon the people that they represent, they regularly attempt to circumvent the Constitution and create laws that are unconstitutional. As a result, the separation of powers and the system of checks and balances are not working like the Founding Fathers intended. Instead, many of the leaders of America, regardless of the branch of government, are purposely violating the Rule of Law as outlined in the Constitution. Ultimately, if they succeed in their effort to rule the nation by circumventing the Constitution and ruling above the Rule of Law, America’s Great Ship of State would sink quicker than the Titanic. Therefore, Commander George Washington, the first Commander of America’s Ship of State, would roll over in his grave if he knew how the government was vilifying the Constitution and the Rule of Law.

Third, does America still have the influence of political parties and bitter partisanship in domestic politics? America does still have the influence of political parties and bitter partisanship in domestic politics. In fact, political parties, along with their partisanship, are responsible for almost bringing the operation of the United States government to a standstill. They cannot get much of anything done regardless of which party has control of the House or the Senate. As a result, the Ship of State is floating aimlessly through difficult waters of economic, social, and political chaos. Ultimately, the end product of political parties and partisan politics could very well be the sinking of America’s Ship of State. But, how could partisan politics destroy America as a nation? Let’s review what Commander George Washington said about the partisanship of political parties:

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 find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passion. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.

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.

Ultimately, based on Commander Washington’s own words in his Farewell Address in 1796, could it be possible that he unknowingly prophesied the sinking of America’s Ship of State? His words paint a vivid picture of what is already happening in America or what could happen in America in the very near future. Consider the “jealousy and animosity” that exists between the politicians and the supporters of the two main political parties, the Republicans and the Democrats. How long will it be before these “jealousies and animosities” erupt into rioting in the streets? How many foreign governments already influence the decisions of America’s lawmakers and executives? But, most importantly, when will “disorders and miseries” cause Americans to “seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual” who would eventually “turn this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.” Therefore, Commander George Washington, the first Commander of America’s Ship of State, would roll over in his grave if he knew how political parties in America had used their misguided influence to divide the nation instead of uniting it.


In America’s Ship of State (Part I), George Washington’s perspective for keeping America’s Ship of State strong and safe was discussed. In America’s Ship of State (Part II), the discussion of George Washington’s perspective for America remaining strong and safe continues with points four through six.

Fourth, does America still exhibit the proper virtues of republican people? In some respects, based on the definition of “the virtues of republicanism,” which occurs when people give up their own interests for the common good, America does still have the virtues of republicanism in operation in the nation. According to John Adams, George Washington’s vice-president and the second President of the United States,

There must be a positive Passion for the public good, the public Interest, Honor, Power, and Glory, established in the Minds of the People, or there can be no Republican Government, nor any real Liberty. And this public Passion must be Superior to all private Passions. Men must be ready, they must pride themselves, and be happy to sacrifice their private Pleasures, Passions, and Interests, nay their private Friendships and dearest connections, when they Stand in Competition with the Rights of society.

However, since America is rapidly turning into a government-supported welfare state and the fact that America has already become a materialistic nation, there probably are fewer people than ever that would give up their own interests for the public good. As a result, if liberty is to prevail, a renewal of the proper virtues of republicanism must begin as soon as possible. According to Bernard Bailyn, an American historian, author, and professor specializing in U.S. Colonial and Revolutionary-era History, “The preservation of liberty rested on the ability of the people to maintain effective checks on wielders of power and hence in the last analysis rested on the vigilance and moral stamina of the people . . . Virtuous citizens needed to be strong defenders of liberty and challenge the corruption and greed in government.” But, since too many Americans are looking for a government handout and/or obtaining materialistic possessions, they are not concerned about corruption and greed in government as long as it does not interfere with their own personal corruption and greed. Therefore, Commander George Washington, the first Commander of America’s Ship of State, would roll over in his grave if he knew that American people and those who represent them were losing the proper virtues of republicanism, which was responsible for making the United States a nation whose freedoms and liberties far surpass any other nation.

Fifth, does America still have the need for morality and religious principle as a popular spring of popular government? According to the Federal government today, America does not need morality and religious principle as a popular spring of popular government, especially since it is controlled by secular humanists, those who believe man can be ethical and moral without God or religion. As a result, secular humanist liberals have been trying to eliminate Christianity and anything associated with morals from the public sector. This can be seen vividly in the agenda of the liberal Democratic Party as it promotes immoral behavior and anti-Christian propaganda. Also, President Obama seemingly enjoys proclaiming regularly that America does not have a Judeo-Christian heritage, despite the fact that scriptures are found encrypted on many federal buildings and many quotes by the Founding Fathers make reference to God and/or Jesus Christ. But, if the secular humanists are going to achieve their main objective to turn America into an atheist nation that operates without morals or religious principles, they must first convince Americans and their representatives that morality and religious principles were never used in the propagation of a popular government.

However, Commander Washington saw it much differently when he controlled the wheel of America’s Ship of State. He said:

Of 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 man and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connexions 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?

Of course, based on Commander Washington’s direct quote, he firmly believed that morality and religious principles were “necessary and proper” if the government of the United States was to survive its shaky beginnings until the present. As he stated, religion and morality were needed if America wanted to be a prosperous nation politically, socially, and economically. In fact, he believed that anyone who attempted to remove these two pillars of human happiness from America should not claim to be a true patriot. True politicians should support these two pillars of human happiness, too. In essence, George Washington believed that without morality and religious principles America’s masterful government would not achieve the objectives of the Founding Fathers, which was to create a nation whose government would provide its citizens with unlimited freedoms and liberties. Therefore, Commander George Washington, the first Commander of America’s Ship of State, would roll over in his grave if he knew that morality and religious principles had been removed from the cornerstone of America’s foundation.

Finally, does America still have the prohibition on entering permanent, long-term entangling alliances with foreign nations? Unfortunately, America does not have the prohibition on entering permanent, long-term entangling alliances with foreign nations. However, America did not heed the warning delivered by George Washington in his Farewell Address in 1796. He purported that America should not get involved with binding agreements with other nations. He said,

…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 deposition to retaliate in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld.

Washington, also said,

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.

But, since America did not follow George Washington’s advice, it has created many problems for its military and its economy. As a result, many Americans have lost their lives and billions, if not trillions, of dollars have been spent on protecting those nations that America is bound to protect based on a signed entangling treaty between two or more foreign nations. Entangling alliances causes “choppy” waves for the Ship of State.

Of course, George Washington was not the only Founding Father who spoke out against “entangling alliances.” In fact, some of his friends, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, also spoke out against them. John Adams said,

America goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own…. She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standards of freedom.

Thomas Jefferson said,

I am for free commerce with all nations, political connection with none, and little or no diplomatic establishment. And I am not for linking ourselves by new treaties with the quarrels of Europe, entering that field of slaughter to preserve their balance, or joining in the confederacy of Kings to war against the principles of liberty.

Also, Thomas Jefferson said,

I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war. All their energies are expended in the destruction of the labor, property and lives of their people.

Finally, Thomas Jefferson said,

Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none, I deem [one of] the essential principles of our government, and consequently [one of] those which ought to shape its administration.

Ultimately, based on these quotes made by George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, America should not have signed treaties with other nations that required it to enter into permanent, long-term entangling alliances. Therefore, Commander George Washington, the first Commander of America’s Ship of State, would roll over in his grave if he knew that the United States had agreed many times over to get involved with the political and military affairs of other nations around the world.

In review, George Washington was the first commander of America’s Ship of State and he is viewed by many Americans as the greatest. He was a statesman who had the interest of the nation at heart more so than his own personal interests and personal agendas. Of course, the main thing that made him such a great commander was his belief in the U.S. Constitution as the rule of law, the virtues of a united people, and the moral values and religious principles of its citizens. As a result, despite the many uncertainties and rough political waves that America’s Ship of State encountered in the early days of its existence, it still remained afloat and completed its eight-year maiden voyage successfully. Therefore, Commander George Washington left an honorable political legacy to all Americans.


However, since George Washington retired as the commander of the Ship of State two hundred sixteen years ago, forty-three different men have commanded America’s Ship of State. The newest commander, who took charge four years ago, is Barack Obama. While he has been commander of America’s Ship of State, he has guided it into many dangerous and uncharted waters. Therefore, America’s Ship of State has floated off the original course that George Washington had set for it when he was the commander. As a result, the Ship of State hit a myriad of icebergs of un-Americanism that was responsible for cracking its hull. Some of these icebergs of un-Americanism were:

• Circumventing the U.S. Constitution as the rule of law.

• Attempting to create a one-party, socialist government.

• Removing God from every part of the public sector.

• Attempting to deny American citizens their right to bear arms.

• Labeling law-abiding American citizens as “potential terrorists.”

• Forcing American workers to join unions in order to get a job in America.

• Nominating anti-American Marxists, Communists, and Socialists to key executive positions.

• Attempting to bankrupt America with a government-funded healthcare program.

• Attempting to create a government-funded welfare state.

• Borrowing billions of dollars daily from foreign nations to operate a dysfunctional government.

• Brainwashing America public school students to accept socialism and secular humanism.

• Attempting to make Americans economic slaves to the government.

• Attempting to deny Americans their freedoms of speech and press.

• Attempting to deny Americans their right of assembly and their right to disagree with the government.

• Attempting to suspend habeas corpus, which would deny a court hearing before a judge to discuss charges.

• Attempting to deny jury trials to people suspected of committing crimes against the government.

• Attempting to divide America by creating true hatred between Democrats and Republicans and the rich and the poor.

• Attempting to raise the debt ceiling without congressional approval.

• Redistributing the wealth of the wealthy to the poor through high taxation.

Of course, despite hitting the many icebergs of un-Americanism, the Ship of State was able to return to its port in order to repair its damages. As a result, many of the passengers who helped finance the building and maintenance of the Ship of State did not like Commander Obama because of his poor leadership and his inability to steer it safely. In fact, they attempted to replace him with a new commander. But, Commander Obama pleaded with his passengers who wanted him fired and made many promises in order to convince them to forgive him for his misdirection of the Ship of State. He also promised them that the crack in the hull of the Ship of State would soon be repaired and would be stronger than ever. Unfortunately, Commander Obama also convinced his passengers that he has the ability to guide the Ship of State forward, despite his plans to follow the same guidelines and floating on the same uncharted seas that were responsible for the initial crack in its hull. This is the reason that they gave him a vote of confidence and permitted him to command the Ship of State for another four years.

Unfortunately, though, the Ship of State’s passengers, who were persuaded to give Commander Obama a second chance, did not really know what type cargo that he might just be transporting on it the next four years. They had no idea what he might have stored in some of the Ship’s cabins, while it was in dry dock for the repair of its hull. Therefore, it is extremely important to take a virtual tour of the Ship of State now and view two of the five selected cabins and their contents.

Cabin 1 contains an example of what the Commander Obama could use to lure his passengers to sleep and to take their minds off the troubled waters that they would be sailing on for at least four more years. It is called “Bread and Circuses.” According to Wikipedia,

Bread and Circuses is a metaphor for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion, distraction, and/or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace. The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the common man. In modern usage, the phrase is taken to describe a populace that no longer values civic virtues and the public life. To many across the political spectrum, left and right, it connotes a supposed triviality and frivolity that characterized the Roman Republic prior to its decline into the autocratic monarchy characteristic of the later Roman Empire’s transformation about 44 B.C.

But, since Bread and Circuses do exist today on America’s Ship of State, what would be a prime example? According to Russell Longcore, an author and writer, in his “Tenth Amendment” article on Bread and Circuses, America now has an insatiable desire for socialism, which is possibly what Commander Obama had in mind as one of his main goals when he took control of the Ship of State’s operation four years ago. As stated by Mr. Longcore,

The majority of American citizens want socialism. They may say that they are against socialism, but they continue to elect and reelect politicians that enact socialistic laws and regulations. They do not storm Washington when those politicians violate the Constitution and commit treasonous, criminal acts. They do not impeach and prosecute the criminals in Washington.

Also, Mr. Longcore said,

America is on the auction block, and the Executive and Legislative branches of the Federal Government are the auctioneers. The American citizens expect their elected officials to bring home the bacon, which means get more Federal dollars coming back home than they are sending to Washington. American citizens want more than their share.

Sadly, as a result, passengers on the Ship of State willingly have bought into the socialist ideology that promotes the redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor. But, while they see “robbing from the rich and giving to the poor,” as Robin Hood did, to be an acceptable norm, they fail to realize that in doing so they are destroying the main job creation mechanism in America. By forcing the rich to pay extremely exhorbitant taxes, it reduces the amount of revenue needed to create jobs. Therefore, if it was not for the job creation ability of rich entrepreneurs, many of the passengers on the Ship of State would not have suitable jobs or they might very well lose the jobs that would provide them with the very income needed to pay for their passage. In essence, this would make them more dependent on the commander of the Ship of State and his board of directors, the federal government.

Of course, this dependency on the U.S. government could be achieved by holding them hostage to the Ship of State’s Treasury. Unfortunately, though, the passengers would need the help of the government in order to maintain a meager existence through free handouts. As a result, a person who depends on government handouts alone would never rise above the economic slavery forced on him or her by the selfsame government. Also, often the children of those who live on government handouts mirror the lifestyle that their parents lived; they are bound to the same lifestyle. Ultimately, it becomes a generational curse that keeps them from the climbing the socioeconomic ladder, too, and then forces them to be dependent on the commander’s dictates forever, too.

Cabin 2 contains an example of what Commander Obama could use to create a one-party system in America. But, how could one of America’s main political parties ensure that it would be able to gain control of both houses of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Office of the President of the United States forever? The answer, of course, is very simple. The political party that achieves the following objectives might very well create a one-party system in America whose intention would be to eventually turn America into a completely government-controlled nation. The objectives that would need to be followed are:

1. Continue to increase government entitlement programs in an effort to create a welfare state dependent on government handouts.

2. Continue to give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants who would support the party that helped them to get amnesty.

3. Continue developing a government that is influenced by godless, secular humanism.

4. Continue to circumvent the U.S. Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land.

5. Continue redistributing wealth through high taxation.

6. Continue brainwashing public school students to look to the government for their every need.

7. Continue threatening people and groups who speak out against the government.

8. Continue to appoint liberal, activist judges to the Supreme Court.

9. Continue to appoint Marxists to top governmental positions.

10. Continue to elect politicians to office whose goal is to destroy America from within.

Therefore, the political party that achieves the aforementioned objectives could redesign America’s Ship of State in such a way that it looks nothing like the one constructed by the Founding Fathers. Instead, it would become a Ship of State that could best be described as an immoral, godless, debt-ridden, and divided Ship whose passengers would be suppressed by a government that seeks their total allegiance to a one-party government.

Then, Commander Obama’s campaign slogan “Forward” would become a reality; he would go forward with the same objectives that he had the first four years of his commandership. Ultimately, following these same objectives would crack the Ship of State’s hull even worst than it did the first time.

As a result, the Ship of State that was originally created in 1789 could possibly sink sometime during the next four years, unless all Commander Obama’s lethargic passengers wake up and see through the fog that now surrounds the Ship of State. It needs a complete overhaul, from the White House to the courthouse to the schoolhouse and to the church house. If not, America’s Ship of State that represents freedom, liberty, justice, and the pursuit of happiness will be no more. Of course, a new Ship of State based on the leadership of only one political party would create a horrendous and dangerous voyage for its passengers, the American people.


 US Constitution vs The US Patriot Act

In America’s Ship of State (Part III), the first two virtual cabins of the current Ship of State were toured to see what contents might be stored in them. Now, in America’s Ship of State (Part IV), three more cabins are toured in order to verify their possible contents.

Cabin 3 contains an example of what Commander Obama could us, if he so desired, to eliminate many of the god-given, constitutional rights that the passengers of the Ship of State have cherished since its construction in 1789. Two of the more prominent examples of legislation that have already taken many rights and privileges from the passengers on the Ship of State are the Patriot Act and the National Defense Authorization Act. But, what are the basic provisions of these congressional acts that would be responsible for denying passengers on board the Ship of State their constitutional freedoms?

According to the Concerned Citizens against the Patriot Act, there is a terrifying difference between the Constitution and the Patriot Act. This can be seen in a comparison of the two documents using key amendments in the Bill of Rights and how the Patriot Act basically guts them. Let’s look at Amendments I, IV, and VI and compare them with the manner in which the Patriot Act addresses them:

US Constitution

Amendment I: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

US Patriot Act

Freedom of association: To assist terror investigations, the government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity.

US Constitution

Amendment I: Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech…

US Patriot Act

Freedom of speech: The government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation.

US Constitution

Amendment IV: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

US Patriot Act

Freedom from unreasonable searches: The government may search and seize Americans’ papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation.

US Constitution

Amendment VI: In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

US Patriot Act

Right to a speedy and public trial: The government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial.

US Constitution

Amendment VI: … to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

US Patriot Act

Right to legal representation: The government may monitor conversations between attorneys and clients in federal prisons and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes.

US Constitution

Amendment VI: … to be confronted with the witnesses against him…

US Patriot Act

Right to liberty: Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them. US citizens (labeled: “unlawful combatants”) have been held incommunicado and refused attorneys. (Cornell Law School and the Associated Press)

Therefore, as viewed in this comparison of the US Constitution (Bill of Rights) and the US Patriot Act, passengers on the Ship of State have permitted the past and present commanders, in the name of safety from terrorism, to deny them some of their constitutional freedoms. But, worst of all, only a very small percentage of the board of directors of the Ship of State, the Congress, actually read the Patriot Act before they approved it, which is seemingly the current pattern of approving documents that affect the Ship of State. Unfortunately, Benjamin Franklin, one of the great builders of the Ship of State, hit the “nail on the head” when he said: “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Unfortunately, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 might just be worst for the civil liberties of Americans than the Patriot Act. The National Defense Authorization Act’s purpose is to act as a budget for the Department of Defense. Needless to say, it had the support of the House of Representatives and the Senate. However, like too many bills that become laws on America’s Ship of State, it had some rider provisions that should be considered dangerous to all Americans. According to Wikipedia,

The most controversial provisions to receive wide attention were contained in Title X, Subtitle D, entitled “Counter-Terrorism.” In particular, sub-sections 1021 and 1022, which deal with detention of persons the government suspects of involvement in terrorism. The controversy was to their legal meaning and potential implications for abuse of Presidential authority. Although the White House and Senate sponsors maintain that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) already grants presidential authority for indefinite detention, the Act states that Congress “affirms” this authority and makes specific provisions as to the exercise of that authority. The detention provisions of the Act have received critical attention by, among others, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Bill of Rights Defense Committee, and some media sources which are concerned about the scope of the President’s authority, including contentions that those whom they claim may be held indefinitely could include U.S. citizens arrested on American soil, including arrests by members of the Armed Forces. The detention powers currently face legal challenge.

But, unfortunately, Commander Obama signed the NDAA into law on January 2, 2013, even though the “indefinite military detention” provision was left in it. In his Signing Statement, he explained: “I have signed the Act chiefly because it authorizes funding for the defense of the United States and its interests abroad, crucial services for service members and their families, and vital national security programs that must be renewed … I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation, and prosecution of suspected terrorists.” (2)

However, considering the categorizing of Christians, veterans, and Tea Party members as potential terrorists by Commander Obama’s Homeland Security force, it would be extremely dangerous to these American citizens, and any other American citizens, since the “indefinite detention” and “military custody” provisions were kept in the NDAA of 2013. Ultimately, it is scary to think that the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the President were all in bed with this treasonous attack on the constitutional civil liberties of all American citizens. Of course, it appears that the courts jumped into bed with them, since they did not overturn sub-sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA, which could be another tactic that could be possibly used by Commander Obama to silence anti-government speech and press in America and on the Ship of State.

Cabin 4 contains an example of what Commander Obama could use to ensure that the national debt increases to the point that the Ship of State must remain in dry dock forever. This budget-busting economic albatross enacted by Congress and enforced by the hierarchy of leaders that support Commander Obama is a taxpayer-funded healthcare program. The superficial purpose of this affordable healthcare program is to insure that all passengers of the Ship of State have healthcare coverage. However, it is just possible that, like so many government programs, this program will never have enough revenue to keep it operational. As a result, Commander Obama must ensure that all passengers aboard the Ship of State continue to pay even more taxes to support it. Also, since over 700 billion dollars have been removed from the Medicare budget to help finance this so-called free ride for those passengers who do not currently have any healthcare coverage, the senior citizen passengers would receive less coverage at the time in their life that they will need even more coverage.

But, is it possible that Commander Obama’s healthcare program is just a ploy to insure that he would always have enough political support from those that he helped get health insurance to keep his commandership? Of course, regardless of Commander Obama’s reason for getting into the healthcare side of America’s Ship of State, when it gets out of dry dock, it would bankrupt America’s Ship of State, which would cause the hull to crack from bow to stern. Then, America’s Ship of State would possibly sink even faster than ancient Rome’s Ship of State. However, most likely, the Ship of State would not completely sink. Instead, it would be continually controlled by the political pirates in Washington, D. C. who intend on making all passengers hostage to their every demand. Then, the commander of the Ship of State and his political party cohorts would finally achieve the clandestine agenda of their political party, which is to create a socialist state, which has been in the developmental stage since the end of World War II.

Cabin 5 contains an example of what Commander Obama could use to ensure that politicians who are elected to office are socialists in their ideology. This would greatly benefit the far-left Democratic Party, since its agenda is a socialist agenda at heart. But, where did so many people in Congress get their training in socialism? They got their training from America’s public school system. According to Devvy Kidd in her September 21, 2012 NewsWithViews article entitled “What Do You Expect When Socialists Are Allowed to Serve in Congress,” public schools have been indoctrinating American school children to the positivism of socialism in the United States for more than 40 years.

Some of the Communist/Socialist goals that Kidd listed that have been rather successful are:

Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

Gain control of all student newspapers.

Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.”

Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.

Ultimately, based on these goals of Communism and Socialism, everything has been taught in public schools, except the truth about these two diabolical forms of government. Of course, as a result, many public school students know very little about America’s Constitutional Republic and how it is supposed to operate. Therefore, as stated by Kidd, “children for almost two decades have been subjected to carefully crafted propaganda in text books offering up subtle suggestions meant to lead the student into embracing becoming a ‘global citizen.’ Not a sovereign citizen with love for America.” This is the reason that American students have accepted Socialism as the norm.

This is the same reason that America’s leaders have accepted the lie of Socialism, too. As Kidd also stated, “Those good little global citizens had their minds washed in the dumbing down institutions of lower learning for at least a decade. Those students are now teachers, they serve in Congress, the state houses and on school boards. They are professors at ‘institutions of higher learning,’ filling the minds of young Americans with the communitarian doctrine (communist morality).”

Therefore, most of America’s current leaders who attended public schools were indoctrinated to the ways of Socialism. As a result, Commander Obama and the Democratic Party have a large bank of socialist candidates to help get elected to Congress and other federal and state positions. Of course, if too many socialist candidates get elected to Congress and other public offices, it would make it easier for Commander Obama to dismantle the current Ship of State, that is, if it does not sink first, and build a new, supposedly more improved socialist version. In doing so, the passengers on a new Ship of State would become hostages and become subservient to a Commander who could rule for possibly more years than allotted by the Twenty-second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, if the contents of Cabins 1-5 on the Ship of State were released by Commander Obama onto its deck all at one time, it would become a frightening horror story for all passengers, regardless of their political party. Unfortunately, though, it might possibly take decades or centuries to escape the frightening effects of this political horror story that is ongoing in America today.
