About Rights

A Right is a Sanction of Independent Action.

A Sanction is authoritative permission.

That’s why thier source determines thier nature!

Are they from God? Are they Intrinsic? Am I hard-wired with them? Are they “born” in the Battlefield? Or are they gifts from the state?

If they come from God as the Declaration of Independence asserts, they are non-negotiable (unalienable).

If they are gifts from government, as the UN claims in thierInternational Covenant on Economic, Cultural, & Social Rights Article 4, then all they have do to to violate them is to write a new “law.”

Negative Rights have stood the test of time. Thou Shall Not Kill or Steal protects your life and property from others. So is “The government Shall make no law, violate, abridge, infringe, deny, disparage ect…

The change towards Positive Rights came subtlely because most people generally do not understand the difference between the right to HAVE something and the right to SEEK Something. Education, Health Care, and Marriage are things we have the right to seek in the pursuit of happiness, they are Goods and Services, NOT Rights. When goods and services of others become rights, then they are cumpulsory, and the providers have essentially become slaves because they have no right to refuse. Equivilant to saying “I have the right to have others work my cotton fields without compensation.” That is Slavery. Then the jounrney from a Defensive Shield of Rights to an Aggressive Sword of Rights is complete.

The Bill of Rights (Amendments 1 – 10)

Rights and Privileges

Rights are directly linked to life and property. The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution agrees: “The Right of the People to be secure  in thier persons, papers, houses, and effects shall not be violated.” Another way to put is: “I have the right to walk on my property whenever I want. I do not have the right to walk on your property, that is a privilege that you extend to me that can be revoked at anytime.”

Rights and Powers

Rights belong to Individuals, Powers belong to Groups. The language of the Constitution supports this when it talks about the Powers of the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches of government. The Tenth Amendment talks about, “Those Powers not delegated to the United States by this Constitution…” A group of people may be able to physically overpower an individual and violate the rights of a single person, that does not make it right. This does not prevent individuals from also possesing power; if your Kung-Fu is good enough or you carry a weapon skillfully, you may be able to prevail against seemingly insurmountable odds and nuetralize the situation by exercising your right to self defense.

In reality, gay rights, black rights, women’s rights are actually excercises in power. Rights belong to and are practiced and enjoyed by individuals. Any special favors given to members of certain groups that exclude others are actually privileges extended by government at taxpayer expense, thus redistributing other people’s money by force to give advantage to a select few. The danger of the concept of groups of people having special rights or enjoying favor with any government is the danger to other groups who fall out of favor. What does it mean for them?

James Madison, by John Vanderlyn

 

In 1785, James Madison wrote an essay challenging a propsed law in his native Virginia called “Religious Assessments” that addressed the very issue of what it means to prefer a religion and the impact to those members of other religions who fall out of state favor:

“The free men of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle.”

What about States Rights?

When used in the context of the Tenth Amendment against to machinations of the federal government or in the supremacy of cities and counties therin, the term States Rights is generally accepted by most because those speaking of it understand the concept. Yet, if we agree that Rights are for Indivisuals and Power is for Groups, then the more correct term is State Soveriegnty. According to the Constitution, States can assert thier power in both directions, within and without.

Taking a license

When Patrick Henry was walking the Streets of Culpeper Virginia, he came across an minister who was whipped for three days until he eventually died. What crime did he commit? He did not take a license! This incident is what sparked Patrick Henry to make his very famous “Give me Liberty of Give Me Death” speech which became a rallying cry for the American Revolution.

A license is an arbitray means for any government or private organization to transform a right into a privilege while making money in the process, thus taking way your rights and selling them back to you; all in the name of safety of course.

While most reasonable people agree that there should be basic minimum standards to protect the public from fraudsters and unskilled practitioners from physically endangering the public, so they usually tolerate licenses and see them as a good thing. The general public is unaware that States may issue licences according to thier own laws and usually specify that they apply only to those people and companies engaged in commercial enterprise and utilizing public resources for private gain. That is why the definition of Transportation according to law deals with the shipment of people and products for a profit. If taxis, buses, and limozines are transporting people on public roads, then the speed limit and licenses apply to them. If there are trucks with massive loads, perishable food, or dangerous chemicals on the highway, then they are engaged in Transportation and the states may regulate them in the interest of public safety.

Unbeknownst to most people in the United States is that the terms Operator, Driver, and Vehicle, apply to Transportation for commercial enterprise and not towards private individuals who are Traveling in thier personal Auto who are not engaged in making money on the highway. The Supreme Court agrees that a person does not need a license to travel on the public roads.

U.S. Supreme Court Says No License Necessary To Drive Automobile On Public Roads

There are ways to challenge a Traffic Ticket or Citation in court if you are traveling in your personal auto on public roads for infractions that apply only to Transportation or for engaging in these things for nonprofit; however, we must all pick and choose our battles.

For those who choose to better understand engage the system in Traffic Courts:

Flexing Your Rights

When encountering local Police, county Deputy Sheriffs, or State Troopers on the highway, it is advisable not to air out your grievances with them on the streets where they are king. That being said, we should always flex our rights, particularly when it comes to private information and personal, vehicle, or home searches. It is important that you tell them that, “I do not conscent to searches,” They may violate your rights anyway; however, if you are arrested, issued a citation,  or have property confescated, you can challenge them in court if you have asserted your rights. Always act respectful and courteous to the police when asserting your rights, this is ultimately profitable for both sides, even if it does not go well for you at the scene.

 

The Rise and Resistance to Globalism in the US

UN General Assembly

The United Nations General Assembly at New York City

For as long as there has been an America, there have been those who seek to exploit her prosperity and might: Pirates, who operate in international waters outside the rule of law, elitists of the high seas, plundering the wealth of nations and leaving the smoldering husks of conquest in their wake. Time and time again, these international banks, corporations, and the politicians they finance, have effectively used strategic alliances to engage in economic warfare against their competition while incrementally using escalating crises they generate to establish global political hegemony.

For decades, the movements of these command-and-controllers have been closely monitored and resisted only by academics, deep insiders, and the most highly knowledgeable of watchdog groups. All of that is changing. Now, with the advent of the internet and the subsequent amalgamation of incalculable data, the average computer savvy individual with access to electronic media can conduct their own investigations with greater ease. This has notably led to a shift in the knowledge base of the grassroots and an exponential surge of anti-globalist groups around the world, particularly in the United States.

While the young America was in its inception as British colonies in revolt, another kind of revolution was taking place in Europe that would change the dynamics of empires forever. In 1773, Mayer Amschel Rothschild organized a meeting of the money powers of manufacturing and banking to discuss his plan. By combining their resources they would gain complete control of the economic and political sphere. Politicians would be servile and obedient to them. They would control all outlets of public information and provide all manner of vice to systematically corrupt the youth of all nations. Finally, they would fund all factions in war to draw all nations into their debt and use crises to push for new world order of a one-world government that is completely owned and operated by them. This plan would involve implementation by stealth until such a moment where no cunning or force could undermine it (Mullins, 1991).

In a similar fashion to the Rothschild meeting of the late eighteenth century, a secret gathering of elitists took place in a hotel room at a luxury resort in Jekyll Island, Georgia in 1910. With representatives of the Rockefellers’, Rothschild’s, the Vanderbilt banking family, Senator Nelson Aldrich, and others, constituted one quarter of the wealth of the entire planet. At this meeting the Federal Reserve System was devised. The voting and signing into law of the Federal Reserve Act by Woodrow Wilson on December 23, 1913 was done under the radar when most of Congress was home for Christmas (Griffin, 1994).

According to author and professor Murray N. Rothbard of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, “The Federal Reserve System virtually controls the nation’s monetary system, and it is accountable to no one. It has no budget, is subject to no audit, and no Congressional Committee knows of, or can truly supervise its operations.”(Rothbard 1996 ).  All of their meetings are held in secret and half the owners are foreign nationals (Mullins 1991). They print money, issue credit “out of thin air,” and finance both sides of every war (Griffin 1994). Lew Rockwell, founder of the Mises Institute adds, “The century of central banking is also the century of total warfare.” Shortly after the formation of the Federal Reserve, World War I was in full swing.

During this, “War to end all wars,” a National Relief Fund was established and Republican Herbert Hoover was dispatched by Democrat Woodrow Wilson to live in Belgium and work for Emile Francqui, the twelfth richest man in Europe and an owner of the Federal Reserve.  Hoover was sent under the guise of a National Relief Fund program to feed the war orphans in Belgium. After trading 200,000 slaves from the Kaiping copper mines in China to the Congo for Franqui, Hoover was deemed the perfect humanitarian for just such an occasion. Instead of helping orphans however, he used US taxpayer funds to provide relief to German army by shipping food and supplies because they were losing interest in war and could no longer afford it (Mullins 1991). Levying war against the several States and providing aid and comfort to the enemy is clearly an act of treason according to Article III Sec. 3 of the US Constitution. By feeding the German army in WW I, Hoover committed treason.

After the war, a League of Nations was proposed by Woodrow Wilson; however, the US Senate blocked America’s entry. In the interim between the world wars, an American branch of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) was incorporated in 1921 and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) was born. Their mission was to incrementally change the political atmosphere in favor of the internationalists (Perloff, 1988). Out of the CFR’s “Informal Agenda Group” The United Nations would ultimately be formed after World War II by the Rockefellers at the Presidio Naval Shipyard in 1945 (Jones, 2006), not by nations tired of war (Perloff 2009).

Also, between the wars was the German consortium IG Farben. Germany made a determination that one of the reasons they lost the war was because they ran out of gas. Since Germany was rich in coal, IG Farben developed a process called hydrogenation that converted up to fifty percent of the weight of coal into fuel. They used this technology as leverage to convince the Rockefeller’s to let them merge with Standard Oil. Ultimately merging with over 2000 companies through the United States and ninety three countries, the agreement was to allow all joint oil exploration outside of Germany be led by the US, and all joint ventures for petrochemical pharmaceuticals be led by Germany and Professor Bayer from Bayer Pharmaceuticals, a founding member of IG Farben (Griffin 1975).

The German war machine of the next World War would be fueled almost entirely from oil that was converted from coal. The oil was good for German panzers manufactured by Ford and for warships; however, it was too crude for the Luftwaffe, Germany’s air force, and the planes had to be supplemented with an additive from Standard Oil in the US. While the German word Farben is benign, meaning dye-stuffs, a tribute to the company’s origin, the use of IG stands for Interessengemeinschaft, meaning “Community of Interest,” or in plain English, a cartel (Griffin, 1975).

While the CFR and IG Farben were moving forward with their international agenda between the world wars, other factions of elitists in the US, more nationalist in nature, believed that brute force was a superior method for implementation of their plans and accelerated their plans. Brigadier General Smedley Darlington Butler testified in Congress to the McCormack/ Dickstein Committee on Un-American Activities from 1934-1935 about a fascist plot by the American Nazi Party to assassinate President Franklin D. Roosevelt and an attempt to takeover of the federal government. He implicated members of Citibank, the DuPont’s, and Remington Firearms (Parfrey, 2003).

By blowing the whistle, two time Medal of Honor recipient Smedley Butler, affectionately known as “Old Gimlet Eye” to his marines, had single-handedly stopped the Nazi takeover of America. Time Magazine, controlled by banker JP Morgan, lambasted Butler in an article titled “A plot without plotters” (Parfrey, 2003).  Although the committee did agree with Butler, they did not release their findings to the public at the time (McCormack). In his timeless classic War is a Racket, Butler lays out the horrors of war while explaining who makes the profits and who pays the bills. The thirty three year veteran acknowledged being a “high class muscle man for big business,” adding, “profits are measured in dollars and losses are measured in lives” (Butler 1935).

Another example of war as a racket for big business transpired shortly after the US involvement in the Korea under UN direction.  In 1954, the Central American multinational United Fruit Company had a big problem.  Jacobo Arbenz came to power in Guatemala. He campaigned on a land reform bill to combat a seventy percent ownership of land by only three percent of the people. In order to prevent disruption of their monopoly, they colluded with the CIA to launch a public relations campaign against Arbenz. Despite Guatemala having no official diplomatic relations with the USSR and no Russian Embassy, accusations of Guatemala as Soviet satellite were enough to justify US pilots bombing Guatemala City and overthrowing Arbenz (Perkins, 2004).

Meanwhile in that same year, across the Atlantic, another internationalist event that would shape the economic and political direction of America was taking place. Much like the 1773 meeting between the Rothschild and European captains of industry, and the Jekyll Island meeting in 1910, the Bilderberg Group met in secret to combine over 120 of the world’s most influential multinational corporations, heads of state, bankers, consulting firms, and media moguls, to come to a consensus and make public policy, while behind closed doors. The elitist confab had been meeting under a total media blackout since 1954 (Jones 2006). This already violates the laws of several nations including the United States such as the Logan Act. This law is found in Title 18 in US Code of Federal Regulations, Sec 593. Because of the corruption that it breeds, all public officials who attend are guilty of felony crimes and can be punished with three years of incarceration.

As a result of the more overt and aggressive international policies, the late 1950’s through the 1960’s, experienced a more galvanized public resistance to internationalist corporate shenanigans and their interlocking globalist bureaucracies. In 1962, the American Legion passed a resolution condemning the CFR. The daughter of the American Revolution petitioned Congress to investigate them. The Goldwater movement, which was to restore the GOP to its roots, and the newly formed John Birch Society rose in strong opposition to the globalists and CFR (Perloff, 1988).

Even with pushback from these highly motivated groups and others, most people were still in the dark. This allowed corporate agents like John Perkins to move across the world and shakedown nations for trillions of dollars in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Recruited by the National Security Agency to be the Chief Economist for the Boston based Charles T. Main Inc., corporate skullduggery was the name of the game. To justify massive World Bank loans to developing countries, he produced an exaggerated false economic prospectus for infrastructure projects and skillfully sold it to his critics. After the loans were approved, contractors from outside the host nation would pour in to start massive water and power construction (Perkins, 2004).

The indigenous people did not benefit as a whole because no new jobs were created for them and they could not afford the services rendered if the projects were finished. By the time the bill came due for the interest on the loans, the leaders had been replaced. The pound of flesh required by these corporations, like Main, Bechtel, and Halliburton, would be to tax the people into submission and strip the land of coveted natural resources. Additionally, these developing nations would have to support US foreign policies and military presence. If a leader of a nation did not get with the corporate program, the “jackals” were right behind him to mop up. Jaime Roldos of Ecuador and Omar Torrijos of Panama were examples. If the leaders were too heavily guarded, or the CIA installed replacements developed hubris of their own then justification for military intervention of that nation would be waiting (Perkins, 2004).

Perkins, who coined the word “Corporatocracy” (Irvine, 2014), lays out how international corporations dominate the majority of the world’s nations in his New York Times bestselling autobiographical novel, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. A good Illustration of this concept from the time period was the film, Network. “There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T” the antagonist shares his vision with newscaster Mr. Beale. “One vast and ecumenical holding,” he describes, “in which all men will share a common stock” (Lumet, 1976).

The omnipresence of industry and arms merging with government was a key point in President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s 1961 farewell address. “In the counsels of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought the by the military industrial complex.” Eisenhower continued, “The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and persists.”

In a speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association three months later, President John F. Kennedy also warned of a “vast and monolithic conspiracy” and added “The word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society.” Kennedy himself resisted the Federal Reserve by issuing Executive Order 11110, which introduced billions of dollars of silver and silver certificates into circulation, as competing currency against Federal Reserve Notes. He resisted the CIA when he fired its director, Allen Dulles, in the wake of the “Bay of Pigs” disaster. He resisted the CFR when he fired his Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Lyman L. Limnitzer, for the proposing terrorists against Americans as a pretext for war with Cuba in the declassified Northwoods Document. Kennedy opposed the military industrial complex by ordering all troops out of Vietnam by 1965 in National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) 263.

Kennedy was publicly executed and his direction was subsequently reversed. Since then, the CFR has been that driving force of influence and misplaced power for decades in both the Democrat and Republican parties. Every Secretary of Defense, over forty United States UN ambassadors, many dominant news media figures, and every member of every presidential cabinet from that day in 1963 have been CFR (Perloff, 1988), even unto this day (Jones, 2009).

“They [globalists] weren’t able to do this [take over] because they had better products,” explains radio host Alex Jones, in his YouTube video, Full Spectrum Evil: The Secrets of Global Domination, “They were able to do it because they created, through fractional reserve banking here in the US, and similar systems worldwide, unlimited free credit for themselves which they then loan out to you at interest.” Jones includes, “They have the get out of jail free card” (Jones 2011).

This was demonstrated in by Inside Job, which is a documentary film about the sub-prime mortgage crisis and subsequent financial meltdown in 2008, costing investors and taxpayers trillions of dollars.  Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the French socialist and Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund in 2007, was asked about the Simon Johnson’s article in The Atlantic magazine. Johnson stated, “The economic and political power of the financial services industry has become so great that the policy-making has become prisoner to the financial oligarchy.” Strauss-Kahn admitted, “That is not wrong,” adding, “I think he puts too much emphasis on this” (Ferguson 2010).

The abuse of economics as a political weapon for corporate control continues. In Foreign Affairs magazine. Shinzo Abe, Japanese Prime Minister from 2006-2007, told Foreign Affairs magazine, the chief publication of CFR’s scholarly white papers, that he was going to use “Abenomics,” his own brand of economics that dumped 100 trillion yen of stimulus onto the Japanese market. “Abenomics” merges “Reaganomics” and “Clintonomics,” as a decisive tool for steering Japan into the international Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) treaty (Rose, 2013).

These endorsements by the Council on Foreign Relations of economic and political activities at home and abroad such as the TTP and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) have culminated in blowback across the land. At a Conference in Seattle, prolific filmmaker and historian, G. Edward Griffin, described his organization, Freedom-Force International, as the Antithesis to the CFR because it is built on the model of individualism and not collectivism (Griffin, 2010).

TTP and TTIP affect the sovereignty of all nations involved. In America, it is being negotiated in secret. There is no congressional or legislative oversight worldwide for its 30,000 pages. Before being quietly released recently, five out of twenty nine chapters that have been leaked, not only can corporations ignore the laws of all nations altogether if the laws interfere with profits, they can sue governments for losses to their expected future gains through “Investor State Tribunals.” Massive sweeping legislation for, guns, climate, cybersecurity, income, pharmaceutical, vitamins & minerals, surveillance, and copyrights are known to be included. In June, after being denied access by the Obama Administration, Congress abdicated its constitutional oversight powers to give the president unlimited “Fast Track” authority to negotiate the terms with 500 corporate lobbyists in secret, even secret from Congress (McAdoo 2014).

This blatant disregard for transparency and congressional oversight has lit a fire into the online Anti-globalist community worldwide, especially in the United States. No longer are these individuals and groups limited to books, magazines, talk radio, and documentaries. The Anti-globalists have taken up arms on the Internet. Former twelve time Congressman and three time presidential candidate Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty, the Ron Paul Channel, his homeschooling curriculum, and Institute for Peace and Prosperity have resisted globalism with a softer, more palatable tone that is easily digestible to the public.

The fight against globalism in governments, banks, and corporations is not a phenomenon that is mutually exclusive to isolated pockets of a geographical area within the states; it is widespread throughout all regions of America. The John Birch Society operates from Wisconsin, Abbey Martin’s Media Roots Podcast is a spin off from her forceful Breaking the Set show on RT News is in Washington DC. Luke Rudkowski’s We Are Change (WRC) is home-ported in New York and has activists in every state. Mark Dice frequently wreaks havoc with his petitions in San Diego. Storm Clouds Gathering is a popular YouTube channel. The Jacksonville based Radio Show Earth: with Dr. Drake & Dr. Truth, is overtly Anti-New World Order in tone. Caravan to Midnight with John B. Wells and Truthstream Media with Aaron & Melissa Dykes are organizations in Texas, Crossing the Void Radio with Scott Haire is based in Connecticut, Dan Bidondi of the Rhode Island stationed Truth Radio Show single-handedly shut down three FBI conferences about the 2013 Boston bombings with questions about “false flag” operations.

Another prominent figure in the world of resistance is Lew Rockwell, the author of several books including the Economics of Freedom and The Left, The Right, and the State. He is a staunch anti-war, anti-state, “anarcho-capitalist,” and founder of the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Austrian Economic Studies in Auburn, Alabama. The Mises Institute is a central hub for liberty oriented scholars from around the world. Mises.org alone gets over half a million visitors per month. More media savvy activists include Constitutional lawyer Krissanne Hall from the Tallahassee based Krissanne Hall Show, who frequently travels the country on speaking tours. Decorated Marine and author of Freedom Adam Kokesh started out as the host of  RT’s Adam vs the Man. Author, actor, wrestler, US Navy Seal, and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura hosts the hard core anti-establishment Off The Grid. Gerald Celente’s Trends Research Institute is harshly critical of globalist scandals. Joel Skoussen’s World Affairs Brief and Matt Drudge’s Drudge Report are also famous within the Anti-globalist community. These activists also share a common trait; they are primarily non-party affiliated.

Among these individuals and organizations, Alex Jones of Infowars.com is considered by many in Anti-globalist circles to be at the “tip of the spear” in the fight against what global leaders themselves call the “New World Order. Alex Jones’s Infowars.com and PrisonPlanet.tv have risen from a public access radio show in the late 1990’s in Austin, Texas to 9.9 million viewers per month according to Similarweb.com.

These groups have plenty to say about a great deal of issues across the geopolitical spectrum. The UN Global Biodiversity Assessment Agenda 21 is a good example because it has caused alarm in the alternative independent media community. Agenda 21 usurps federal and state authorities and goes directly into local communities. Adrian Whylie, a former Libertarian candidate for governor of Florida, warns of the “Florida Forever” program to confiscate private property under the guise of environmentalism and turning over wetlands to Nestle, a Swiss company, so they can bottle the water and sell it back to us (Irvine 2014). From lauding the virtues of bringing back gladiatorial events in a Hunger Games type of scenario, to cramming people into compact cities, fierce opposition to Agenda 21 is looming, After UN Secretary General Kofi Anon recommended humans eat bugs to save the planet, radio host Alex Jones talked about an anti-human agenda that wants people to live in a 200 square foot apartment and pay $100 for a steak (Jones 2006).

The Globalists can push back too, and play dirty. When the World Trade Organization (WTO) had a meeting in Seattle in 1999, thousands of people who criticized the organization as being a thinly veiled asset collection tool for elitists on the global plantation, showed up to protest. “What do you do when you have an angry crowd with a legitimate gripe? You call in your boys” according to documentary film Police State II: The Takeover. In the film, Anarchists known as the “Black Block,” under Delta Force protection, and a rent free a base of operations across from the Seattle Police station, injected themselves into the crowd of legitimate protesters. After hours of destructive behavior against the will of the majority, they created the pretext for the police to crack down on the entire crowd, beating and arresting them indiscriminately. The First Amendment was suspended, martial law was in effect, and sixty percent of the city was shut down while WTO meeting continued unabated. Anyone so much as wearing an Anti-WTO pin in downtown Seattle was arrested at the checkpoint (Jones 2001).

The advent of this internet activism has led to a mass awakening and also resulted in the establishment globalists counter-responding in other, more positive ways after decades of press and media denial and blackout, the Bilderberg Group now has an official website. Sometimes, even Congress responds, Rep Mike Rogers has even introduced HR 1205, the “American Sovereignty Restoration Act” to permanently end US membership in the United Nations (American 2015).

“Monopoly needs government,” G. Edward Griffin best explains while unmasking the paradox of the rich socialist: “The biggest industries today, the multinationals, are not interested so much in efficiency in production or competition in price or product level. They are competing at the government level,” adding, “so they can use the power structure of government to eliminate or hinder their competition” (Griffin 1975).

The progress that capitalism and corporate profits bring can certainly empower humanity or it can be an incredible engine for global tyranny. What will we choose for the future of international business?  Competitive goods and services or coercion? The consequences of inaction to the future of humanity can be severe. The battle rages on. What else can be done? Be Vigilant, conduct your own research, vote with your dollars, and be prepared.

Frederick Douglass stated, “A man’s liberties rest in three boxes, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.”

Flag Burning Q & A

How do you feel when you see images of the U.S. flag burning?

IT HURTS.

I find it to be personally repugnant, insulting, and angering; however, being offended is the price of freedom. I am saddened to think that people find it necessary. As a veteran, I also find it to be disrespectful, not only to me, but for the millions who bled on the battlefield in since the founding of America.

If you saw someone planning to burn a flag, what do you think you would do?

It’s difficult to say with total certainty. I believe that I would engage them in conversation, ask them if they were renouncing citizenship, listen to them and appeal to their conscience to dissuade them. If unsuccessful, I would depart.

As a real warrior, I handle threats differently than social justice warriors who run around in a fantastic crazed state of screaming and being offended.

Now, If they came over to my house to burn my flag, they would have a very bad day.

Do you think burning a U.S. flag is a legitimate and effective form of protest and subject to 1st Amendment protections? Why or why not?

I think it’s a real form of stupidity; however, I will concede it as a freedom of expression that has no victim.

Is flag desecration is a serious enough problem that it warrants a constitutional amendment? Explain your point of view.

No. This is a legislative issue, not a constitutional issue.

Besides, legitimate constitutional amendments are usually designed to restrict the power of government, not the rights or activities of the people that do not violate the life, liberty, or property of others.

There are only three federal crimes a citizen can commit in the main body if the Constitution. All others are reserved for the states. While I’m not a fan, I support the court’s decision in Texas vs Johnson. I see the action of burning a flag oversees as protest as an expression of hatred related to US foreign policy. I think it is also protest here. Instead of being offended by it, I mostly dismiss them as angry idiots. It is not the most effective means of activism as far as I’m concerned. Their time would be more productive by connecting with more people through more positive outlets.

An Article V Constitutional Convention for a new amendment is extremely dangerous. This is the worse congress in history and the next one is likely to be even worse than this one. I have no doubt that meddling with the Amendments would result in the evisceration of massive sections of the Bill of Rights. That is a deal breaker which would dissolve the Union according to the Preamble of the Bill of Rights. Even with more egregious edicts that need to be overturned like the 16th and 17th Amendments, the benefits do not outweigh the risks.


In spite of the US Supreme Court cases, most States still have laws against the intentional desecration, mutilation, or burning of the US Flag, applicable State Flags, and the Confederate Flag.

American Thunderbolt: Benjamin Franklin the Inventor

Benjamin Franklin, Michael J. Deas, 2003

Benjamin Franklin, Michael J. Deas, 2003

Many of the Founding Fathers were Beasts!

They were mighty in their chosen fields of endeavor. Ship fleet owners like John Hancock, land surveyors like George Washington, publishers like Paul Revere, successful lawyers like John Adams, and prominent physicians like Benjamin Rush were among the crowd of brilliant men. Most were also farmers. Before John Quincy Adams followed his father’s footsteps in law, he was a US Ambassador to Russia at twelve years old. Thomas Jefferson spoke seven languages, was an architect and engineer who designed Monticello, and even invented the swivel chair in his spare time. Public service was a collateral duty for these men. They would have scoffed at current day professional politicians with no accomplishments outside of government who never had a “real job” in their lives.

Benjamin Franklin also made his mark on history in amazing ways. In addition to his historic role as the only signatory of the four Key Documents, the Declaration of Independence, The Treaty of Alliance with France, The Treaty of Paris which made peace between England and the States, and the US Constitution,  Franklin was also an accomplished scientist and prolific inventor.  Indeed, much of his inventions were truly as paradigm-shifting revolutionary and ahead of their time as the fledgling nation he helped to establish. These inventions benefited the community as a whole, demonstrated their personal utility, and even served as a source of entertainment as to permit expressions of artistic values.

Many of Mr. Franklin’s innovative creations are familiar to Americans to this day regardless of whether or not they are attributed to him.  He retains the title, among many, as Father of the Public Library which acted as a lending library. Not only did he found the Library Company as an outgrowth of his Junto book club, he even designed the emblem (Hall 56-58). He utilized his skills and ownership in his printing business to publicly endorse the development of a Fire Department, later known as Benjamin Franklin’s Bucket Brigade (59), and endorsed paving of the streets in Philadelphia (Gaustad 36) while improving the design of street lanterns to allow more airflow and require less frequent cleaning (Hall 59).   By designing Twenty Schilling Notes and incorporating the use of actual leaves in the prints, he helped to battle counterfeiting (57).

Exercising his talents as a civic pioneer even further, in 1749, he was founder and president of the University of Pennsylvania , and co-founder of the Philadelphia Hospital with physician Thomas Bond (60).  He continued to serve with his extraordinary vision for new ideas, even suggested the concept of Daylight Savings Time to the European and American communities as an economic enhancer. His argument for Daylight savings time was that candle light was cheaper than sunlight. Although this vision was not realized until the twentieth century, Ben Franklin has received the credit for the idea (Gaustad 46-47). Infused with his own flavor of wit and wisdom, he published the popular “Poor Richard’s Almanac.”  Preferring the turkey as over the bald eagle is considered to be his only bad idea. Benjamin Franklin believed that the eagle was a bird with bad moral character. In his dauntless fortitude during the execution of his civic duties, his last public act was to sign an appeal to congress for the abolition of slavery (Davis).

By connecting Leyden jars that acted as electrical capacitors to harness their total collective power, Franklin had created the First Battery. He addressed the issue of insufficient retention of heat from the conventional in-house fireplaces of the day by manufacturing a wood burning stove made of iron that still bears his name (58). After his world famous experiment to prove that lightning was made of electricity in 1752 (Davis), he created the Lightning Rod. Some rods still exist to this day as museum artifacts. One rod on display is visibly bent at a right angle by a bolt of lightning, clearly demonstrating the usefulness of the creation. As the first Postmaster General of the United States, the issue of making postal routes more efficient was handled with a pioneering method. Benjamin Franklin built an Odometer and connected it to a carriage to measure distance by counting wheel revolutions (Hall 59).

One of the more familiar items produced from the mind of Ben Franklin are the Bifocals which were made by combining the lenses that were designed to clarify distant and nearby objects into a single set of eye-glasses (58). Bifocals were so ahead of their time, it was noted that President Andrew Jackson still used two sets of glasses on his head to read his inaugural address decades later. Other items attributed to Dr. Franklin are development of the Long Arm reaching device to assist him with retrieving books off the top shelf in his later years, a urinary catheter, and even swim fins (Fuller).

The Armonica was a musical instrument created from thirty seven glass bowls of various sizes and controlled with a foot pedal and spun through water.  This was the invention that gave Benjamin Franklin the greatest measure of personal satisfaction and enjoyment (Gaustad 45-46). Indeed, even Mozart and Beethoven, composed music specifically designed for it (Hall 58).  As he was recognized internationally with unprecedented levels of popularity at home and abroad, he is championed as the inventor of the American Celebrity (Davis).  John Adams, who joined Franklin on his mission to  France during the Revolutionary War, recalled, “There was scarcely a peasant or a citizen…a lady’s chambermaid or scullion in the kitchen…who did not consider him a friend to humankind.”

Considering the popularity and usefulness of Ben Franklin’s innovations, one might expect that he would rake-in substantial sums of money from the copyrights only to be surprised to learn that he refused to patent any of them, saying” As we benefit from the inventions of others, we should be glad to share our own,…and this we should do freely and generously” (Hall 58).   After his death, Frenchman stated, “He was able to retrain alike thunderbolts and tyrants ” (Mirabeau).  Benjamin Franklin has been credited with these things and much more. Twenty thousand admirers attended his funeral.  If he only created the bifocals and stove, that would have been noteworthy, however he has been credited as the man who helped to “invent” America (Davis).

Criminal and Civil Law

Depending upon its context, the word LAW can mean many things to various people ranging from absolutes like gravity that apply to all universally and consistently through paper legislation that is selectively enforced. In addition to physics and ideas back by force of arms are laws that deal with the rights and expectations in human affairs such as Natural Law and Common Law.

Criminal Law and Civil Law deal with the concept of justice. That is, an effort to right a wrong after the event has taken place.

Criminal laws deal with conduct that has been deemed as prohibited and punished by the state. The state is defined as government ranging from local, municipal, county, state, national, or federal. Criminal trials are usually titled as the “State vs Individual.”  The 6th Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees that in all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy a speedy and public trial in the state and district which the crime shall have been committed in, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, to be informed of the nature of the accusation, to be confronted by witnesses, for a compulsory process for gathering witnesses on their behalf, and to seek the advice of counsel for defense.

The burden of proof that the crime was committed by the accused is supposed to rest with the state in the spirit of innocent until proven guilty. However, since no one is considered faultless in the human condition, a jury (or judge if the right is waived) will pronounce “Guilty” or “Not Guilty” of the specific charges.

Since counsel is a right, an attorney must be provided by the court if one is not affordable to the accused. Additionally, the 5th Amendment provides protection against self-incrimination and no person shall have their life, liberty, or property taken without due process. No warrants shall issue without probable cause in the 4th Amendment and no person shall be a slave in the US except as punishment for a crime according to the 13th Amendment. By this standard, with the world’s largest incarcerated population of 2.4 million people. The US has the largest slave population in the world today.

Crimes are usually have victims and are divided into two categories, Felonies and Misdemeanors.

Misdemeanors such as traffic violations, DUI’s with no casualties, or minor drug possessions are considered as less serious crimes with punishment ranging from fines and community service to jail. Prison sentences in misdemeanors range from one day of confinement to  a maximum of 11 Months-30 Days in Florida. Felonies are the more serious crimes against persons directly such as rape, murder, or assault. They are punished more severely with 1 year or more in prison.

Civil cases are not state sponsored prosecutions. They involve two parties known as the Plaintiff and the Defendant (or Respondent). The parties can be individuals, corporations, or organizations. The court’s role in these disputes is to arbitrate and assign liability and to award damages, usually in the form of monetary reparations. The danger of life and limb or incarceration is not involved in civil cases. These disputes can be anything from unpaid rent to demanded refunds for unsatisfactory performance or services not rendered. These trials can range from small claims court to multi-million dollar lawsuits. The 7th Amendment guarantees a right to trial by jury for any dispute in excess of twenty dollars. This was equivalent to an ounce of gold at the time of ratification (1788), which is now worth $1,200 an ounce in 2015.

During the pre-trial phase in criminal cases, the accused is informed of their rights at the time of the arrest. This is a result of the 1966 case known as Miranda vs Arizona in which the suspect was not informed of his rights. This is called “Mirandizing” the suspect which is something of an irony since Miranda was not Mirandized. I will never personally call them “Miranda Rights” as they are commonly referred-to because if they were given through the courts, all it takes is a court case to overturn them and make them go away, however; if they are 5th and 6th Amendment rights, then they are irrevocable due to the integral nature of the Bill of Rights as the deal under which the nation states confederated. To repeal them would be a deal breaker and dissolve the union between the states which is why they are never attacked directly, but usurped by subversive legislation. The accused usual enters a plea (sometimes they don’t) of guilty, not guilty, or nolo contendere (no contest). Lawyers also take depositions, attorneys share information on both sides and the charges are read in an arraignment and pre-trial hearings are conducted.

In civil cases, a lawsuit filed against individuals, politicians, corporations, firms, or other groups. The respondent or defendant can challenge the “tort” with a demurrer to prevent criminal indictment or ask for a summary judgement in an attempt to have the case dismissed before trial. Both sides may agree to an out of court settlement. If it proceeds to trial, witness depositions are taken, interrogatories are answered, and other parties may file an amicus curiae to join in.

During the trial phase for criminal charges, a jury is selected or a continuance is given if the judge agrees for more time to be given to the accused. Jurors can be denied for any reason in practice, however; there are official reasons that are unacceptable for rejection, like race or gender. This is called peremptory challenge. Experts and witnesses are sworn-in, testify, and cross-examined. The standard for conviction is “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt” and the jury must be unanimous. For civil cases, only 3/4 or 5/6 vote by jurors is required because the stakes are lower and the standard for the decision is “a preponderance of evidence.”

Post-Trial phase for criminal trials can involve appeals to have the conviction remanded or overturned if the errors in the trial were proven to be significant or new exculpatory evidence is produced that was not available at the time of the original trial. Criminal trials can sometimes lead to civil trials. An example of this would be the O.J Simpson Trial for the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1994. After being exonerated of the murder charges in the criminal case with a not guilty verdict, the families sued Simpson successfully in a 1997 a civil case for wrongful death. Compensatory damages in the form of monetary payments may be rewarded to the plaintiff in civil cases. Sometimes punitive damages may be applied to the defendant by the court. If the defendant feels that the punishment was excessive or the determination of the court was in error, they may also appeal.

Case Study: Don’t Drone Me Bro!

Dallas Police Robot

Dallas Police Robot

There is a new development that may not only further exacerbate the police public relations, it can bring us closer to “fundamentally transforming America” as Obama announced in his inaugural speech.  In the wake of the horrific massacre of multiple police officers in Dallas, TX, comes news that a robot was used to deliver a bomb that killed the suspect. In order to understand the possible future social and political ramifications of this unprecedented use of a non-areal drone to kill an American on American soil, it is necessary to review the development of drones and drone policy from multiple points of view and examine how they are already changing the political landscape on a global scale.

Charles Krauthhammer, foxnews.com

Charles Krauthhammer, foxnews.com

In what was recognized to be a public relations crisis for aerospace manufacturers, coupled with a public affairs crisis for the US federal government, “I would predict the first guy who uses a second amendment weapon to bring a drone down who is hovering over his house will become a folk hero,” claims Charles Krauthammer, a Fox News analyst who openly supports the use of drones overseas but not domestically.  He enjoys the American empire, however, does not want to live under it. Calling for an outright ban on domestic use, Krauthammer declared, “Drones are instruments of war. The founders had a great aversion toward using instruments of war, the use of the military, inside the United States.”

John Oliver, HBO.com

John Oliver, HBO.com

John Oliver, host of Last Week Tonight on HBO deflected the severity of domestic use by shifting gears, referring to drones as “the third-most annoying thing in the sky after mosquitoes and plastic bags caught in the breeze.” He added, “Overseas, drones are a slightly more serious matter.” “During the Obama administration, we launched eight times the drone the number of drone strikes as his predecessor.”

According to the Foreign Policy Research Institute, there are approximately 7,500 US drones in operation and 65% of Americans support drone strikes overseas. Number of drones foreign and domestic. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism has estimated that 900 noncombatants including 200 children have been killed since the inception of the program. Accurate data is not able to be assessed as to the identity of the targets in the aftermath because of the complete devastation to the area.

Conservatives concerned about privacy and liberals aghast about the loss of life seemed united in their resistance to the use of unmanned remotely controlled aerial vehicles known as drones, particularly the systems of reconnaissance and weaponized vehicles like Predator and Global Hawk.

Toscano Linkedin

Michael Toscano, Linkedin.com

In response to the outrage concerning drone use the Washington based Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) President Michael Toscano went scrambling into damage control mode with the bold statement, “People who don’t know what they’re talking about say these are spy planes or killer drones. They’re not.” He referred to them as “remotely piloted vehicles.” He continued by adding 35,000 car death statistics per year for death toll comparison and lauding the virtues of the firefighting and search and rescue capabilities. Comparing them to mother and apple pie may not have had its intended soothing all-Americana outcome. They were marginally efficacious at best.

Leon Panetta, Defense.gov

Leon Panetta, Defense.gov

In reference to fighting Al Qaeda in 2009, CIA director Leon Panetta called drones, ‘The only game in town.” Yet, It is very difficult to run a successful public relations campaign for a program that exists on record but is not recognized by official sources. In February of 2013, in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, said that he was told “You’re not even to acknowledge the drone program. You’re not even to discuss that it exists.”

 

In 2012 after the New York Times published an article about the Disposition Matrix, secret drone strike kill list that members of the Obama administration leaked, We Are Change reporter Luke Rudkowski approached Democratic National Chairperson Debbie Wassermann-Shultz. When he asked the Florida Congresswoman whether she trusted Mitt Romney to handle Obama’s kill list, she said, “I have no idea what that what you’re talking about.” I’m happy to answer serious questions.”  Several organizations ranging from liberal The Young Turks to the reporters at London based Guardian   have slammed her for being ignorant about the existence of the list. During their second encounter in 2015, the Congresswoman acknowledged the list and talked about Obama bringing balance; however, she did not answer the questions to the satisfaction of the reporter as to the constitutionality of the list or the extrajudicial killing of US citizen Anwar al-Awlaki and his sixteen year old son by drone strike. Jeb Bush also claimed to be unaware of the Disposition Matrix.

Article I, Section 9, Clause 3 of the US Constitution explicitly prohibits a Bill of Attainder: That is any list that arbitrarily finds someone guilty without due process of law: no judge, no jury, no trial, no evidence, no charges, no lawyer, and no witnesses. The right to trial by jury is the only right that appears three times in the Bill of Rights.

Laurie Calhoun is the author of We Kill Because We Can: From Soldiering to Assassination in the Drone Age. In an interview with on the Tom Woods Show podcast, she noted how drones, originally covert in 2002, have grown to become standard operating procedure. He also noted that for ten years, with few notable exceptions like Rand Paul, there was no public debate in Congress between 2002 and 2012. Obama said on Google Chat “look what I’m doing to keep you safe.”

Tom Woods

“The reality is that all of the people killed are suspects. This is unprecedented in history and in criminal justice.” She added that suspects are considered “shady” because the evidence is provided by bribed locals, a similar process that led to of the detainees who were incarcerated at Camp X-ray in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for years without due process, 86 percent of which were innocent. “The very same tactics are used for intelligence gathering in drone strikes.”

The counter argument as to how do we deal with shadowy stateless enemies that intend to do us harm. The choice between Tomahawk cruise missiles and full scale invasion or drones in order to prevent even more objectionable policies “false dichotomy,” Calhoun told Dr. Thomas E. Woods Jr. of the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

Yemen's President Ali Abdullah Saleh points during an interview with selected media, including Reuters, in Sanaa in this May 25, 2011 file photo. Saleh said on November 14, 2011 he was ready to step down within 90 days of reaching a deal on a formal process for implementing a Gulf initiative aimed at ending the nine-month-old crisis in his country.

According to Calhoun, public relations concerning drones has already led to civil war and humanitarian disaster. In Yemen during November 2002, President Saleh authorized drone strikes by the United States. The fear of drones was so pervasive that Zubair Rehman a thirteen year old drone strike survivor told the US Congress in 2013, “I no longer love blue skies.” During gray skies he continued, “The mental tension and fear eases.”  This was considered to be a way to eliminate his political enemies by labeling them as terrorists and forwarding the information to the United States. This eventually resulted in the Houthi Coup and a civil war. Saudi Arabia does not acknowledge the legitimacy of the new government and is using the crisis to continuously slam Yemeni militants with billions of dollars of US supplied heavy weapons.

Laurie Calhoun

Calhoun continued, “There are allot of groups of angry people who posed no existential threat to the United States, even if they hate us, because they do not have the means to come over here, have all been conflated into a single group of evil terrorists, [Saleh was] using his collaboration with the United States to eliminate political enemies.”

“They are assumed to be combatants unless otherwise proven” according to Calhoun, some are “defending their homeland from invasion” and, “Throwing them all into one barrel of evil terrorists (posthumously) akin to Osama bin Laden and I reject that premise.” In Calhoun’s book, Norm Chomsky states, “The drone assassination campaign is the most extraordinary global terror campaign yet conceived and executed.

2013_ja_coverThe July / August 2013 issue of Foreign Affairs Magazine, published by the Council on Foreign Relations, is titled “Death from Above: Are Drones Worth It?” It features two opposing papers by professors Daniel Byman and Audrey Kurth Cronin.

In “Why Drones Work.” Professor of Security Studies at Georgetown University Byman explains, nobody does it better, foreign leaders approve, controlling the spread of the technology is impossible, and they limit Washington’s military commitment abroad which keeps Americans safe. “A 2012 poll found that 74% of Pakistanis view the US as the enemy; but, they do not realize drones take out those who wreak havoc in their country,” he argues that the ratio of civilian to militant strikes are lower compared to other kinds of strikes.

Professor Byman, Georgetown.edu

Professor Byman, Georgetown.edu

In “Why Drones Fail” Cronin, a Professor of Public Policy at George Mason University, asserts that Al Qaeda is resilient, drone strikes significantly enhance their propaganda, and that drones are a form of remote control repression and serve primarily to keep them it in check rather than dealing directly or eliminating threats. She adds that drones are transforming relatively harmless local conflicts into international fights and draw in new terrorist recruits. Also, they make “lifesaving” interrogations impossible and a “pass the remote attitude” that uses technology and fear to solve sophisticated conflicts.

The essay also displayed a picture of three Pakistani tribesman holding pieces of a missile with the caption “Don’t drone me, bro!”

According declassified to a Pentagon Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Task Force report from February 2013, overcoming the “tyranny of distance” from the home base to the target is also favorable argument in support of drone use.

Good Kill, IFC Films (2014) IMDB

While drones have appeared seriously in only a few Hollywood movies like Syriana, with George Clooney, they are slated to be the main feature of controversy in upcoming movies. Good Kill with Ethan Hawke deals with the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) faced by drone remote operators who return home to their families and barbecues every night as though nothing has happened. American Ultra starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristin Stewart makes a comedic approach to the casual use of drones.

The CIA Entertainment Industry Liaison can be found at CIA.gov. Their stated function is to assist anyone creating media pertaining to intelligence for public consumption and bring authenticity to convey how intelligence is “exciting, challenging, and essential.”  They appear to be working hard to fix the image of drones, or at least inject them into the narrative as a multifaceted and sophisticated part of the political debate, reflecting the realities of twenty first century warfare.

Eye in the Sky, Raindog Films 2016, IMDB

As great example of this is the intense drama Eye in the Sky, starring Aaron Paul and Helen Mirren and coming out in 2016 will feature the philosophical implications of the drone use as center stage. The plot revolves around the moral decisions that must be made quickly when using Hellfire missiles to take out a structure that houses a radical group arming themselves with suicide vests while a young girl plays outside nearby. The focus is on the conflict that arises internally within the intelligence organizations when remote pilots only see the outside of the building and refuse to fire. “If they kill eighty people, we win the propaganda war; if we kill one child, they do” is a talking point.

John Oliver commented on drones during a broadcast of Last Week Tonight. He showed Pakistani cartoons featuring drones that converse with mosquitoes and drone strike green screen graphics packages for local news outlets.  “When children from other countries are telling us, we’ve made them fear the sky, it might be time to ask some hard questions.”

Gerald Celente from the Trends Journal Magazine commented in a 2014 interview on the Alex Jones Show, “How would Thomas Jefferson react if he saw a drone out the window of Monticello?” adding, “Oh, the King just wants to make sure you are safe.”

Farea al-Muslimi, a Yemeni youth activist and writer, testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights that “The drone strikes are the face of America to many Yemenis.”

In October of 2015, RT.com published a report in which whistle-blower Brandon Bryant, a former drone pilot, describes a staggering ninety percent of people killed were not the intended target, adding “They don’t care who gets killed as long as they hit the target.”

The framework for the justification of the use of deadly force, as per former Defense Department advisor and Georgetown University Law Professor Rosa Brooks who reported to Congress is: “We have an executive branch making a claim that it has the right to kill anyone, anywhere on Earth, at any time, for secret reasons, based on secret evidence, in a secret process, undertaken by unidentified officials.

President Obama at the WHCA Dinner, C-span.

“I have two words for you, Predator Drones” warned Mr. Obama to the Jonas Brothers boy band from a podium in reference to the protection of his daughters at a party speech. Amidst the ensuing laughter he added, “You will never see it coming.”

While Obama’s promise to Fundamentally Transform America was eye opening for some, Fundamentally altering our altering our forms of government was one of the 27 grievances against England listed in the Declaration of Independence. His bold statement was followed up with “For those who challenge the scope of our ambitions fail to realize that the ground has already shifted beneath them.” While the ambitions of government to grow always carries with it increased negations of liberty, he was right about one thing. Most people are unaware of the shifting.

What happens to a building when its foundation is ripped out from underneath it?

Thomas Jefferson said, “The state of war always serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.”

While the police were correct to put an end to the shooting in Dallas, was the use of a robot to kill the shooting suspect in in Dallas the best or only option?  Time will tell as more information is released.

Rand Paul’s drone filibuster, foxnews.com.

The advent and strategic use of drones, whether areal abroad or rolling at home, is a shifting force that must be recognized. Meaningful discussions on Capital Hill like the one between Senator Rand Paul and  Attorney General Eric Holder with his response and the Filibuster of John Brennan’s appointment as CIA Director, because of his support for domestic use of drones, are few and far between.  A robust debate among policymakers and candidates for office concerning the use of drones and the militarization of the police is long overdue. It’s time to be more sophisticated in the pursuit of liberty with a deeper understanding of the rule of law and the impact of foreign and domestic
policies and bring that full spectrum analysis to the public discourse. As the preamble to the Bill of Rights describes, further declaratory and restrictive clauses on government (especially one lacking transparency) would go a long way to restore public trust and confidence in government which is beneficial for all.

IN August of 2016, the White House released it’s drone guidelines to the public. Fox News has published it without any links to a source document and subsequently pulled the story off of their website, forcing local Fox News affiliates to use CNN as the source of the story. Unfortunately, the CNN article does not reference the source document for review either.

Of particular concern is not only the extrajudicial nature and the ability of the president to conduct strikes from the comfort of his office; it is also a concern as to what these guidelines do or do not reveal about how targets are chosen and who else has the weapons release authority to launch a drone strike.

Here is the newly released Source Document that appears to be three years old on the date of release. 2013.05.23_fact_sheet_on_ppg (1) . Contrary to Obama’s statement suggesting the guidelines are newly revised.

link: https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/uploads/2013.05.23_fact_sheet_on_ppg.pdf

As the guidelines were released, RT published Game of Drones which documents how these extrajudicial killings are taking place in Pakistan and how one country engaged in continuously bombing an ally country is unprecedented in the history of the world.

“A REPUBLIC madam, if you can keep it.”

Benjamin Franklin by Joseph Siffred Duplessis (1798)

Benjamin Franklin by Joseph Siffred Duplessis (1798)

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!” Benjamin Franklin

These United States of America are a Republic. They have never been, nor did the founders ever ratify a Democracy. There are 50 State Constitutions in America and one Federal Constitution. Neither the Declaration of Independence, nor any of these 51 documents contain any mention of democracy.

There is a reason for this.

The Philadelphia convention resulted in the scrapping of the Articles of Confederation for an entirely new American Constitution. When Benjamin Franklin, the internationally renown author, inventor, diplomat, and statesman was asked by a woman who asked, “Well, what have you given us?, he responded, “A Republic Madam, if you can keep it.”

As one of only six people who signed both the Declaration of Independence (1776) and the US Constitution (1787), Franklin would know. He stands alone as the only person to sign all of the “Big Four” documents that created America and established it as a sovereign and Independent power. These documents also include the Treaty of Alliance, Amity, and Commerce with France (1778),  and the Definitive Treaty of Peace between England, France, and the United States (1783) also known as the “Treaty of Paris.”

Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution states: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature can not be convened), against domestic Violence

Republic (Res =the thing/ Publica = the public): the public thing or the rule of law. (Latin)

Democracy (Demos = people/ Kratien = to rule): or rule of the people. (Greek)

Ben Franklin said “if you can keep it.” Why the Warning?

Founding Presidents quotes concerning Democracy

Federalist Party leader John Adams and Republican Party leader Thomas Jefferson were often bitter political adversaries on most issues. not when it comes to the concept of democracy. James Madison, who later became an Anti-federalist leader also expressed his views. All were once President of the United States.

Thomas Jefferson by Rembrandt Peale, 1800

Thomas Jefferson by Rembrandt Peale, 1800

 

“A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Thomas Jefferson

 

 

John Adams by Gilbert Stuart, 1800

John Adams by Gilbert Stuart, 1800

“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” John Adams

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUeOCjcgVsE

John Adams “A Republic of laws”

 

James Madison by John Vanderlyn, 1816

James Madison by John Vanderlyn, 1816

“Hence it is that democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and in general have been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths… A republic, by which I mean a government in which a scheme of representation takes place, opens a different prospect and promises the cure for which we are seeking.”    James Madison, Federalist Papers No. 10 (1787)


 True Representation vs  Manufactured Consent

Edward Bernays, Public Relations Museum, npr.org

Edward Bernays, Public Relations Museum, npr.org

Edward Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud, was an expert in applied psychological warfare. Considered to be the Father of Spin, Advertising, and Modern Propaganda (Public Relations), he served as the inspiration for totalitarian regimes through the 20th-21st centuries. In his 1928 book Propaganda, he unabashedly lauded the virtues of mass manipulation, revealing the dangers that occur when the goal of transforming a representative republic into a democracy is fully realized:

 “THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.
      We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized”.

The efforts to transform our Republic into a Democracy the very heart of most of the problem facing America. Classic examples for manufacturing of consent are Hitler, Stalin, and Saddam Hussein being democratically elected to positions of dictatorship. if one actually believes the results are genuine.

“Making the World Safe for Democracy”

Tony Essex/Hulton Archive/Getty

Woodrow Wilson by Tony Essex (Hulton Archive/Getty)

Woodrow Wilson is a man described by Judge Andrew Napalitano as ” A great destroyer of liberty,” allowed himself to be duped into surrendering American sovereignty over to international banks and multinational corporations.  This came at the behest of his controller and “second soul,” the Rockefeller man who permanently occupied two rooms in the white house, Edward Mendel House.  Wilson gave us the World War I justification, “Making the World Safe for Democracy.” This phrase was manufactured by Bernays and sold by Wilson. Towards the end of his life, he apologized to the people for allowing banks to hijack our monetary and political system.

Yes, there are underpinnings of democracy that work in the Congress, sometimes

The United States Constitution

The United States Constitution

Some democratic principles are infused into our republican system of government for internal operations in the Legislative branch. During a vote for a candidate or regular legislative process, the requirement of more than 50% works. There are many cases where it does not work, inside or outside government. A lynch mob is a majority; the only dissenting vote is at the end of a rope. In our republic, no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law and a fair trial. Even then, it must be a unanimous, a 100% jury decision of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Senate ratifications of treaties and proposals  constitution convention require a 2/3 vote and ratification of new amendments must be a 3/4 vote. This is the rule of law, not majority rule.

Democracy in the form of a popular vote works in a limited fashion, for example:  Choosing members of the House of Representatives. This is good news for all citizens because the people have a direct voice in in Congress, especially the big states because they get more representatives. To balance the this and prevent presidential candidates from only appealing to a few select densely populated urban areas, the electoral college was put in place. Good news for the small states in the Executive arena. The Senate is another story.

Disaster for Democracy in the Senate

Seal of the US Senate

Seal of the US Senate

For over 120 years, US Senators were originally creatures of the state that were appointed by the state legislators in a vote from among the state representatives at the state capitol. It worked fine. That is what made them different from Representatives in the House. The Senate has 2 votes per state, good news for small states because they have an equal say, unlike the House where larger states have more power. If people didn’t like how House Representatives were performing, they would only have to wait two years to kick them out of office at the ballot box.

The Senate was different. Although senators were appointed for six years and had greater constitutional power in select areas, the accountability was swifter. If enough people didn’t like what their US Senator was doing, they would complain to their state capitol and have them recalled and replaced. By changing US Senators to a popular vote, The 17th  Amendment completely redefined a Senator as a glorified representative and eviscerated the state legislatures power to protect their interests and to affect policy at the federal level. Now senators disappear into the land of corporate lobbyists in Washington DC, never to be heard from again, and there is nothing that can be done about it for six years. If they behave badly, most of their constituents will not remember in six years and they will usually be re-elected.

Putting Legislative issues on the ballot

The US Senate 1880, Senate.gov

The US Senate Chamber in 1880, Senate.gov

Many states transform legislative issues into constitutional issues in the name of democracy. State referendums on ballots that propose amendments to state constitutions are usually a way for legislators to pass the buck to novice populations who don’t understand all the facets of the law. This absolves themselves of responsibility for the consequences of bad laws while saying it’s what the people want. If the people are to make legislation through direct democracy, then why do they need expert legislators or leaders for?


 Republic vs Democracy/  Individualism vs collectivism

Just as Federalists were actually nationalists and the Anti-Federalists were actually federalists in the early days of our America, today, the concepts of republicanism and democracy actually have very little to do with the Republican and Democrat political parties. Both parties, believing that their ideas are so good they make us comply through force of arms through taxation or manufactured consent through fraud and manipulation.  They are mostly authoritarians posing as liberals and conservatives or collectivists posing as individualists.

“It’s all for the greater good” A dangerous phrase: Collectivists believe in served by sacrificing individuals for the good of the whole. Individualists believe in protecting all individuals for the good of the whole. Democracy and Collectivism can be one in the same when it comes to morality based on mathematics. Republics and Individualists can be one in the same if they decide that murder will always be against the law, no matter how many people support it.

The source of the modern day confusion

Lexicon specialists can hardly be expected to be political scientists. The modern day dictionary definitions of republic and democracy are so close, they can hardly be distinguished. The words have been used interchangeably for so long, most people believe they are the same. Even the Democrats and the Republicans, which differ from democrats and republicans, no longer read their party charters at their national conventions.  The affinity for Greek culture and its ancient democracy makes it a romanticized  word. Many smart and powerful people have used republic and democracy interchangeably in their dialog and writings, some well intentioned, others not.

What about other republics like Rome, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), and the People’s Republic of China (PRC) ? Are we equal to them?

Being a Republic based on the rule of law does exempt us from total disaster or mean the laws are good and the rights of the people are respected.

Just as the democracy of a lynch mob may have no respect for the rights of the individual because of the tyranny of the majority, republics based on bad laws can also be brutal totalitarian regimes run by oligarchies exercising the tyranny of the minority over the majority.

The Communist Party in Russia ruled for 70 years with an iron fist when they only constituted 3% of the population.  Banana Republics that descend into anarchy usually move from anarchy to tyranny in a flash because the people with the biggest guns and the hardest fists take power.

Historically, many countries that start out as republics degenerate as they expand into empires while simultaneously imploding within from popular ratification of the transfer and redistribution of public assets to ever increasing foreign populations (“Barbarians”) in the name of democracy. Combined with their lust for an unsustainable empire, this led to their inevitable collapse.

If the Stalinist Republic of Russia killed 61.1 million of their own people and Mao -Zedong’s China killed 78.8 million of their own, what makes our Republic different?

The Source and Nature of Rights and Laws makes all the difference.

The Declaration of Independence acknowledges God four times and establishes the foundation of good government and discussing the laws of nature and nature’s God, adding that Rights are endowed by our Creator.  Article VII of The Constitution of the United States recognizes the Lord. Title 4, Section 4 of the US Code of Federal Regulations , updated in 2002, shows that the US Congress official finding that this nation is established on Christian principles under God.

Their source determines their nature. If we lose our way, we lose our republic.

What should we know about Bilderberg?

Who Rules the World? — They Do!

King George III. Portrait by Johann Zoffany, 1771

King George III of England. by Johann Zoffany, 1771

One of twenty seven grievances listed against King George III in the Declaration of Independence is:  He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended legislation.

Who are they?

As Charlie Skelton recently wrote for the London Guardian, a Pulitzer Prize winning and internationally renown newspaper, Forget the G7, Bilderberg is where the real guns go.

They are a globalist, collectivist government cabal, run by corporations and international banking cartels. Through their ownership of the mainstream media outlets , they have kept their activities secret from Americans for decades by a directed press blackout.

"Prince Bernhard 1942" by Yousuf Karsh

“Prince Bernhard 1942” by Yousuf Karsh

The Bilderberg Group was founded on May 29, 1954 at the Bilderberg Hotel in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, and was hosted by Prince Bernhardt. They meet annually at different hotels in different counties throughout Europe, North America, and Asia. At least 120-150 of the most influential global power brokers gather in total secrecy. Under maximum overkill security conditions . This international conference of kings and queens, captains of industry, bankers, technology giants, mainstream media, and heads of state, and future political players gather to determine a consensus about political policies of the member nations and determine how to move forward with their agenda.  Today, Queen Beatrix, the owner of Shell Gasoline and the daughter of Prince Bernhardt, is the Honorary Bilderberg Chairperson, making her one of the most powerful women in the world.

After Over 50 years of denial, the advent of the internet and the rise of citizen journalism through the alternative media has forced them to publish a nonthreatening and incredibly boring Official Website.

According to Title 18 US Code, Section 953 (The Logan Act) makes it illegal for public figures to  conduct secret meetings with foreign elitists to set public policy in America because of the corruption that it breeds.  Attendance is a FELONY punishable by three years in prison.

His new book, Bilderberg: Facts and Fiction is available. Dice also acquired the tax returns for American Bilderberg for 2007 , 2008 , 2009 , and 2010.

What do they want? According to William Guy Carr’s Pawns in the Game (1956) and Eustace Mullins on page 55  of his 1983 book, Secrets of the Federal Reserve, a similar meeting took place in Frankfurt Germany in 1773.  Hosted by the Rothschild banking family, it calls for nothing short of “global governance” through a “New World Order,” terms that world leaders like Adolf Hitler, George H.W. Bush,  Bill Clinton, Senator Gary Hart, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Herman von Rumpoy, Al Gore, Henry Kissinger, John Kerry, Steven Harper,  Joe Biden, even Barak Obama have openly boasted.


How did they accomplish this?

In Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement, a documentary film by Alex Jones, we meet Jim Tucker, the late investigative journalist who has tracked Bilderberg for decades. Also, Daniel Estulin talks about his international bestselling book The Bilderberg Group, translated into 21 languages. Included throughout are damning indictments of the globalists in their own words.


What have they done so far?

One Example of this is on page 7, Section V from the official 1955 Bideberg Report released in

2011, because that’s how long it takes, in which they openly admit it was always their intention to create the Euro Dollar and Economic Euro Zone 44 years prior to the 1999 implementation.

The Euro Zone is such a disaster for debtor nations like Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain as their unemployment rates have soared and they are taxed as a perpetuity for bank defaulting of loans. Creditor nations like Germany have populations that are resentful of loans their banks have made that cannot be repaid. As a result, the wealth of all nations involved is plundered and the middle classes are crushed.

Kissinger when Democrat President Bill Clinton signed it it 1993. The Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America was signed by Republican President Bush and also supported by Kissinger. These are steps that lead America closer to a North American Union.  What will happen to the constitutions of Canada, Mexico, and the United States when they are merged?


The Current Agenda

The 29 chapters and 30,000 pages of the still secretive Trans Pacific Partnership creates an Asian Union and global government that is run by corporations. British investigative reporter Paul Joseph Watson from Infowars.com reports on the current state of Bilderberg 2015.

The official guests list does not include Jeb Bush or the Queen of England, who are also originally scheduled to be in the area during the meeting.

The 2015 Bilderberg Meeting 2015 is taking place at at the five star Interalpen Hotel Tyrol at Telfs-Buchen/Seefeld, Austria during the week of 11-15 June. The meeting not just criminal itself, there will be plenty of international criminals on the guest list. The attendees are a who’s who of representatives from the banking community, Many of the bankers who just paid $5.9 Billion in fines for market currency rigging (an infinitesimal fraction of what they made from the scam). General David Patreus, fresh from his conviction for leaking classified information will also be there.  His proclaimed “hero,” the 92 year old Henry Kissinger, a man implicated for multiple war crimes across the globe for decades, and even has arrest warrants issued against him in Europe, will continue his regular visit.

Here is the Agenda from the Official Web Site. Do you like international criminals deciding these topic policies for your country in secret illegal meetings?

The Radio show EARTH: Bilderberg & the TPP (Part 2)Earth Live-2

How about the unofficial list?

Fierce resistance to the International corporate takeover of governments of sovereign nations through the TPP, the war on cash and precious metals, discrediting the UK from leaving the EU, and bypassing the US Congress, isolating Russia, opposing China and the BRICS counties resistance to the petrol-dollar system. and the Messina Group endorsement of Hillary Clinton for 2016 US presidency.

Sixty Years without comprehensive news coverage! Have you ever heard anything about this group in your life? The Total media blackout In America continues.

The Amendment Avenger salutes the entire team at Infowars for remaining at the tip of the spear in the front line consistent reporting with  boots on the ground at every Bilderberg meeting for the past decade.

In spite of it being carried on the popular news site in the world with over 11 billion visits a year, the Drudge Reoprt, there is no mention of it in the media without an occasional forced mention to remain relevant with added caveats of conspiracy theories. If 150 sports or Hollywood celebrities were having a secret party under maximum taxpayer funded security, it would be news.  Is it normal for people to want answers about 150 world leaders meeting in secret?

So why do media pundits ignore this story?

The words:  “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years……It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries,” are attributed to Trillionaire David Rockefeller at the 1991 meeting. This serves as a probable explanation for the lack of attention and even the outright denial of any knowledge of the existance of the group by the mainstream traditional media year after year.

Obama and Hillary Clinton are reported to have attended the meeting after he ditched the press in 2008 during the presidential campaign in Chantilly VA. The Manhunt for the two candidates proved fruitless for 48 over hours. To this day, they’re not talking about it.

Just as the North American Union (NAU) Parliament has been conducting their illegal meetings which have been mostly ignored by the mainstream media through the doctrine of implementation of stealth, preparing the Amero in the spirit of Bilderberg. These  meetings will continue as Americans remain in the dark. Ask any random person on the street in America,”What is the Bilderberg group?”, some people will even respond, “What? Build-a-Bear?”
