Mercenaries — UN Troops – What’s the Difference?   Leave a comment

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

This refers to King George hiring foreign mercenary troops to fight against the colonists. Remember the Hessians?

Again, we’re not living the same experience as the colonists, but there are similarities. Consider that President Obama and his administration tend to think we ought to follow United Nations’ edicts. Consider that federal officials frequently override state laws that are appropriate within that state. Was anyone being hurt by Jim Wilde not having his boat registered on the Yukon River? State of Alaska Troopers and Fish & Game officers didn’t think it was important enough to bother him. The National Park Service, however, though it was worth boarding his boat and threatening his passengers with guns.

Are we sure we want to get to a point where Obama or some future president authorizes the blue helmets into, say, Alaska to calm us all down and force us to be good little socialists?

Plundering & Ravishing   16 comments

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
King George had declared war on the Americans. British troops had burned several American towns, considering Americans to be in open rebellion against their lawful rulers. For the Americans, their “lawful rulers” were the very colonial legislatures and town meetings that were declared closed by British decrees and were under attack by British troops.

No, as far as I know, President Obama is not burning our towns. Do we want for it to get that far?

Just in the last year, there have been several instances of federal troops conducting “training exercises” in American towns and cities — Houston, Miami, Port Angeles WA, and others. The exercises included Apache helicopters flying low over houses with machine gunners clearly visible, storming an abandoned school, firing dummy ammunition which sounded like real gun fire. These seemed very real to the residents of these communities, who were given no warning that these exercises would occur. In some cases, their own city governments were unaware of the “planned” exercise.

How safe do you feel now?

Remember Boston after the Marathon bombing? People forced from their homes by gun-toting police, made to run down the street with their hands over their heads?

How safe do you feel now?

Except that it is clearly a clean American street in the photo to the right, doesn’t it look chillingly like Baghdad or Cairo?

How safe do you feel now?

WAKE THE HECK UP, AMERICA!  Teddy Roosevelt (we haven’t talked about him yet, but we need to) and Woodrow Wilson set modern American tyranny in motion and just about every president since then has contributed to the encroachment of the federal state on our liberties. George Bush certainly set the table for the loss of liberty we’re seeing now, but Barack Obama put troops on the streets. He’s not burning our towns … yet … but increasingly it looks like it’s only a matter of time.

How safe do you feel now?

Sit Down and Shut Up, Americans!   Leave a comment

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
Having concluded the list of complaints whereby Britain denied Americans their right of self-government, the Declaration turned to the assault of the British government on the Americans’ lives, liberties, or properties, contrary to the purpose of government, which is “to secure these rights.”

George III approved, on December 22, 1775 and again on February 27, 1776, an act of Parliament which declared the colonies out of the King’s protection. The British government issued this declaration because of what it viewed as the intolerable degree of unruliness of the colonists. Basically, the American colonists were outlaws, in the original sense of the word.

 

If you have a complaint about American government in the 21st century, you’d best be careful how you state that complaint or you risk coming up on a surveillance program and having your life totally turned upside down.

Our government hasn’t officially declared war on us, but they sure are treating us like the enemy. Someone pointed out to me last night that it seemed interesting to her that whenever a official disagrees with the Obama administration, their sex life suddenly becomes common knowledge. Maybe it’s because they are moral scoundrels, but she found it really interesting that the sex lives of those who support the Obama administration (Anthony Weiner aside) don’t appear to make the media. Maybe it isn’t that the media isn’t reporting it. Maybe, she suggested, it is the NSA now finds out about these affairs through email and phone call tracking and chooses which ones to make public.

As far as I’m concerned the Patriot Act has pretty much declared war on all American citizens who hold views different from the current administration. But recognize, that if we change parties in the White House, we’ll just switch the enmity to those who disagree with the White House, so if you disagree with surveillance programs on principle, you’re an enemy of the state no matter who is in the White House.

Swapping Jurisdictions   Leave a comment

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
British policy allowed Americans to be transported to England at the desire of either prosecutor or defendant in trials of persons charged with having committed murder in the course of suppressing a riot or enforcing revenue laws. Americans charged with crime subject to trial in the military courts could also be transported far from the scene of the actual crime to stand trial. And, Americans could also themselves be shipped to England to stand trial for certain crimes against the King’s property, for example His Majesty’s ships or other military equipment. This policy was so obnoxious to the Americans that the first Continental Congress on October 21, 1774, adopted a resolution declaring “That the seizing, or attempting to seize, any person in America, in order to transport such person beyond the sea, for trial of offenses, committed within the body of a county in America, being against law, will justify, and ought to meet with resistance and reprisal.”

That’s not happening today, is it?

Well, … yeah, actually it is. Locally, Shaefer Cox committed his so-called crimes in Fairbanks. He vented, he gave some speeches, he planned violent actions in response to a future collapse of society (all theoretical) and he owned a semi-auto rifle that had been non-functioning since he’d attempted to convert it to an automatic more than 10 years before. Scary dude, huh? He did all these things in Fairbanks. The federal government insisted upon trying him in Anchorage and when his attorney objected that Anchorage is 400 miles away from Fairbanks, the judge replied that they could just as well move the trial to New Jersey and still get a fair jury of Shaefer’s peers.

You decide? Do you see any similarities?

Where Is The Media Outrage!!??   2 comments

This case is fairly old, but it has come up again because the judge in the case was found to be addicted to prescription drugs, thereby requiring a review of all the cases. I’ve attached a link for a more current story and suggest you read the comments attached because they are illustrative of the community.

Fact is — Stand Your Ground is a GOOD law, a law that says regular people should not have to cower in fear of the bad guys or be raped, mutilated and murdered as these young people were. Yes, these folks were probably partying at the time and it is a rule of gun safety that you never carry when drunk or high, but the very fact that the bad guys don’t know if you’re carrying is a deterrent to attacking you.

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

**Wake Up White Boy**
The text description is very horrific !!!!
As horrific as this is, it needs to circulate!!!
The animals pictured below car-jacked then raped Christopher Newsom, cut off his penis, set him on fire and fatally shot him several times while they forced his girlfriend, Channon Christian, to watch. An even more cruel fate awaited her!
Channon Christian was beaten and gang-raped in many ways for four days by all of them, while they took turns urinating on her. They cut off her breasts and put chemicals in her mouth… and then murdered her.

No Outrage

Knoxville (WVLT) – The District Attorney General of Knox County announced the list of charges facing now five suspects in the double murderof Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.

The District Attorney General Randy Nichols is not saying whether or not he will seek the death penalty, but he does say the State will…

PLF defeats scheme to deny access to justice for coastal property owners   Leave a comment

Note, the administrative state started this one — AGAIN, but then the state court and the federal court worked to get the administrative state what it wanted. Good to see the higher courts are starting to rule with some sanity. Today, anyway.

Detroit: Why Pay for Nothing?   Leave a comment

My husband and I were scanning Netflix a couple of weeks ago and we ran across a documentary film from 2008 (I think). In it, a Detroit woman was documenting the deterioration of her city. At a townhall meeting, the mayor warned that the city would no longer keep pace with the cost of services and suggested that people who wanted to continue to receive services choose some built-up neighborhood in the core of the city and turn their abandoned homes into farmsteads. That was the only way he could see to save the city. I guess he came up with another one — stop providing services.

Detroit is what happens when government grows too big and too expensive, so that people can no longer afford to pay the taxes that support the government. In Detroit, people who could moved away. People who couldn’t or wouldn’t stopped paying. Now the city has applied for bankruptcy.

May I suggest this is a (potentially) good thing. Detroit’s city workers were unionized a long time ago, which means they receive high wages and lush benefits regardless of the city’s financial situation. Somewhat like Hostess and the car companies that built Detroit, the only choice to get out from under these legacy burdens is to file bankruptcy. Detroit could (potentially) be the city that reorganizes and returns as a healthy, vibrant urban center with an engaged tax-payer base.

Maybe. And, it won’t happen quickly. It’s going to take time for people to wake up and realize that THEY were the problem — that the services that they no longer receive and rarely pay for were the problem. In the absence of city trash pickup, what’s going to happen? Well, there’s going to be a mess … until someone (maybe an out-of-work former city garbage collector) says “Hey, I could do that.” He goes to the homeowners in his area and says “I’ll haul your garbage for this much.” They say “Well, we can afford this much.” He thinks about it a while, goes around the neighborhood finding out that he’s charging too much, and then he comes back with a reasonable offer and VIOLA, Detroit has private garbage service in one of its neighborhoods, which inspires others to do the same and ….

The market will find a way if the government gets out of the way. In Detroit, maybe the government needed to be TKO’d for that to happen. Maybe other towns will wake up and smell the burning coffee beans and start privating services before they fall victim to Detroit Syndrome.

Maybe.

Most people, regardless of their political bent, take issue with paying into a system that offers nothing in return.

In a follow-up to what could potentially rise from Detroit’s bankruptcy ashes, I examine how the local governments have swiftly been demoted from a force to be reckoned with, to a bunch of whiny bureaucrats.

The only reason why people pay into the Federal tax system now is because many still believe it provides some level of necessary services. (Of course, once you find out that your federal tax dollars don’t pay for anything, and all of it is servicing the interest on our national debt, you might get a little irritated and disenfranchised… Guess I should’ve mentioned the spoiler alert there. Oh well.)

Nearly half the property owners in Detroit are delinquent on their property taxes.  The few who still do pay taxes are not any…
