The Constitution Is Irrelevant Because Our Framers Could Not Envision Today's World


The government and people responsible for enslaving our children in debt have many common talking points. One of the most prevalent is the attack on our Constitution and its relevancy today since our framers could not envision the problems that the nation would have to face 226 years in the future. Let's look at some of our framers' and one early president's views on debt and banks:

"Think what you do when you run in debt; you give to another power over your liberty."
--Benjamin Franklin

"I, however, place economy among the first and most important republican virtues, and public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared."
--Thomas Jefferson

"Some of the evils which arise from this system of paper press with peculiar hardship upon the class of society least able to bear it. A portion of this currency frequently becomes depreciated or worthless, and all of it is easily counterfeited in such a manner as to require peculiar skill and much experience to distinguish the counterfeit from the genuine note. These frauds are most generally perpetrated in the smaller notes, which are used in the daily transactions of ordinary business, and the losses occasioned by them are commonly thrown upon the laboring classes of society, whose situation and pursuits put it out of their power to guard themselves from these impositions, and whose daily wages are necessary for their subsistence."
--Andrew Jackson

Slavery or involuntary servitude is the result of either subjugation by conquest or succumbing to the bondage of debt.

Colorado Gun Sales Skyrocket to All-Time High as New Laws Loom

Via NC Renegade


Pro-gun residents of Colorado were preparing for the worst on the gun control front, and on Wednesday Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) reaffirmed that by signing three major gun control measures into law. However, since the introduction of the Assault Weapons Ban legislation, the number of background checks has skyrocketed - doubling over the course of a year.

From December 2011 to February 2012, gun sale background checks totaled 73,603 in Colorado. Of those, 35,468 were long rifles and 38,135 were pistols. For the same period, one year later, the total number of background checks was 147,908 - twice the amount from the three month period from one year earlier. Of those, 67,485 were long guns and 80,423 were pistols.

The Truth Of The Matter Concerning The Second Amendment
1.    Our political leaders have made a mockery of the U.S. Constitution.
2.    The American people have become subjects placed under administrative law. Our founding fathers were all-too-familiar with this form of law for this was the law of the king. In most instances, all trials are conducted without a jury and the accused is at the mercy of a biased administrative law judge. It was the intent of our founding fathers for the inhabitants of America to be governed by common law.
3.    Our Supreme Court justices have resorted to writing law instead of adjudicating on the constitutionality of laws.
4.    Our executive branch is using administrative agencies in order to write laws and circumvent the legislative process.
5.    The American people have been inundated with thousands of agencies, manned by thousands of officers armed with hundreds of thousands of regulations used to control, manipulate, tax and create undue hardship on the masses. Or as was stated in the original Declaration of Independence, “He has sent hither swarms of officers and offices to eat out our substance.”
6.    The American people have been burdened with the legal expense incurred as a result of bad legislation, over-regulation, and corruption all created by our political leaders.
7.    Even the simplest of our most basic rights, such as the Right to Work, has become a bargaining chip used by political leaders to garner votes.
8.    The American people have been placed under foreign jurisdiction through various treaties and acts all without the peoples’ consent and all with the intent of a “one world” government.
9.    Our states have been denied protection from invasion as outlined in article 4 section four of the U.S. Constitution, as well as, article 1 section 10 par 3. To add insult to injury, our states (aka the taxpayers) have incurred tremendous legal expense in defending themselves against legal actions brought by the very government that was established to defend and protect them in the first place.
10.    American citizens are being incarcerated at an alarming rate for breaking laws that have no foundation in either natural or constitutional law.
11.    Our political leaders have created a lifestyle of kings for themselves and conduct their political business with total disregard for the American people and with impunity for their actions.
12.    We have been left in a state of uncertainty and confusion as our political leaders refuse to govern by the Constitution but instead spend all their time debating back and forth over which party’s unconstitutional agendas are best for the American people.
13.    Our executive branch is currently under the control of what can only be called a less than honorable individual. This is an individual who was never properly vetted for the position either by his party or the American people. The American people know less about this individual than they know about the background of a petty thief. His anti-American views and beliefs are well documented as well as his agenda for a socialist America and the redistribution of wealth.
14.    The executive office uses tactics of vengeance and hatred to drive home their intentions. The most recent being the closing down of the White House to visitors while continuing with a lifestyle that is more opulent and extravagant than the very king from which we declared our independence.
15.    The executive branch has resorted to using broad executive orders (over 900 and counting) in order to circumvent unfavorable decisions of the legislative branch.
16.    For far too long, we have been subjected to an unfair, unconstitutional and arbitrary politically-motivated tax system that only exists through fear and intimidation.
17.    Through agencies such as the IRS our homes, businesses and accumulated wealth are being confiscated without due process of law.
18.    The right of eminent domain has been manipulated to the point citizens are losing their property to corrupt backroom business deals.
19.    Property is confiscated for trumped-up charges and sold with the proceeds being divided up between law enforcement and government.
20.    Under the Patriot Act, Americans can be spied upon by their own government.
21.    Federal agents have been given unconstitutional authority to write their own search warrants.
22.    Under the National Defense Authorization Act, Americans can be arrested and detained without being afforded due process of law.
In every stage of these oppressions, we have petitioned for redress in the most humble of terms. Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.

NC: Elm City Woman Shoots Intruder

My Dixieland neck of the woods.  Good job, Ma'am!

An Elm City woman shot at two men who broke into her home on Tonya Road Friday morning, her husband told WRAL News.

Chris Griffin said his wife, who had stayed home sick from work, heard a noise around 11 a.m. and then saw two men outside her house. When she heard them start kicking in the back door, she hid in the bedroom closet with a cellphone and a pistol.

The men ransacked the house, and when they opened the closet door, she fired at them, Griffin said. One man was struck, authorities said.

The men fled, and neighbor Wayne Crumpler said he heard them yelling for help.

"I heard somebody out at the road. He was hollering, 'Help me,' waving his arms, jumping up and down trying to stop traffic," Crumpler said. "There was another guy in the background. I heard him hollering, 'Help me. I've been shot in the chest. I'm dying.'"

The wounded man then started toward Crumpler's house.

"He started in this direction. I stepped inside and got my revolver," he said. "I told him to hold it."

The man then ran into the woods, Crumpler said.

Retired Army Officer: DHS Must Surrender Their War Weapons to Dept. of Defense

Via avordvet

 capt dhs

On Saturday March 23, Terry M. Hestilow, a retired Army officer with nearly 30 years of service under his belt, posted this letter he sent to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) this week. Hestilow wants DHS to hand over their war weapons to the Department of Defense.

The Honorable Senator John Cornyn, State of Texas
United States Senate
517 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Re: Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that agencies preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America

Dear Senator Cornyn,

It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America. To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.

Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming,

ABC's 'Nightline' Takes Aim at Glock Handguns


"....... the fact that their executives are smart enough to outwit gun-grabbing Democrats is just icing on the cake as far as American gun owners are concerned."


On March 22 ABC's Nightline did a segment focused on how Glock handguns are the scourge of the anti-gun world. 

Before the segment started, anchors teased it as being framed around America's love for the Glock. But once it began, they criticized the way Glock advertises it pistols and the way Glock refurbishes and sells used pistols. Throughout the segment, every time legal uses of a Glock were highlighted, the anchor made sure to point out facts like "Congressman Gabby Giffords was shot by a Glock in Tuscon," and "Adam Lanza carried a Glock into Sandy Hook Elementary."

The segment opened by showing a Glock commercial where a girl, living alone, pulls a Glock 9mm to defend her life as an attacker tries to get through her door. In the commercial, the attacker comes through the door only to freeze in fear when he sees the woman standing there with a Glock pointed at him.

Throughout the commercial, the Nightline anchor interrupted to interject statements like: "In the real world, one study found that women living with a gun are almost 3 times more likely to be shot to death."

Did Nightline stop to think about how sexist this claim was before they made it? The implication is that women either don't know how or aren't even capable of handling a gun.

NRA's LaPierre: Bloomberg 'Can't Buy America'


National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre on Sunday declared that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg “can’t Buy America” when it comes to the national gun debate.

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” LaPierre was reacting to Saturday’s announcement by Bloomberg of a new $12 million television ad campaign from Mayors Against Illegal Guns to help push senators in key states to back gun control efforts, including comprehensive background checks.

"He can't spend enough of his $27 billion to impose his will on the American people," LaPierre asserted.

Slavery In Rhode Island–Who Woulda Thunk It?

Via Billy

Awhile back now an honest writer named Jeff McDonough wrote an article that appeared in the Jamestown Press  in Jamestown, Rhode Island. It had to do with slavery in Rhode Island. I realize that our current crop of what passes for historians seldom wants to deal with slavery north of Mason-Dixon, the idea being that we are not supposed to even realize that it existed up there. And should it be admitted, which is rare, it will be downplayed almost to non-existence.

So Mr. McDonough’s article was quite revelatory, and you can bet no major media picked up on it. After all, they wouldn’t want to confuse their readers with the facts.

McDonough noted that: “Few people living today in Rhode Island realize that the slave trade was once a vital component of the Ocean State’s economy. ‘The numbers are astonishing’ says Ray Rickman, project director of an exhibit dealing with the slave trade in Rhode Island. In an 80-year period, people in Rhode Island got rich from the slave trade.”

Money Walks: Out of California, Into The South and Southwest


In the United States today, interstate migration is becoming a more and more prominent topic. A new book called How Money Walks has used IRS data to put hard numbers to which states are losing and which states are gaining wealth due to interstate migration.

Most of it won't surprise you: the northeast and the rust belt states, along with California, are losing residents at incredibly high rates. Most of the south and southwest is gaining. Texas, Florida, Arizona, and Colorado lead the way in total wealth gained due to migration. Some are surprising, though: Washington State, for example, has been a fairly large gainer. And the outlier in the South is Louisiana.
