20 Years: Ruby Ridge

Twenty years ago today, six men wearing cammo and carrying M16s and night-vision goggles crept onto the property of a northern Idaho man. They killed his son and wife. The murderers claim special immunity because they have guns and demonstrate willingness to kill anyone challenging them, and because they were "just following orders".

CopBlock has more.

Wikipedia has more.

"Just following orders" applies to people in costumes, from time to time. Get used to it, or change it.

2012 and 'The Choice'

Local jurisdictions and state jurisdictions may not ignore the Constitution.
Can a business, a city, or a state decide on a little slavery, for the common good? NO. The 13th Amendment is the law of the land. And those Amendments are part of the Constitution from which those jurisdictions draw authority.

The Constitution acknowledges unalienable rights, granted by your creator- It does not 'grant you rights'. You have unalienable rights as a result of being human. We Constituted this government to protect those rights. Any law repugnant to the Constitution is Null and Void. Any government that makes itself repugnant to the Constitution, violates it's foundation, thereby rendering itself Null and Void.

Can a business, a city, or a state decide to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms? No more than they can choose slavery. No Constitutional entity can retain authority by violating the Constitution.

So any city/state "infringing"- Removes the foundation of it's authority, and makes itself a 'domestic enemy to the Constitution'. Such entities are 'without the rule of law' by their own doing. Mercenaries in their employ are without legal foundation traceable to the Constitution. Anyone sworn to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" is duty bound by their oath to defend the American people against these 'domestic enemies'. Failure to stop domestic enemies, or 'just following orders' was not a valid excuse for the train conductors and prison guards at Auschwitz. Nor is inaction valid today in the face of domestic enemies.

Which is where 2012 finds us. On a declared battlefield (NDAA, section 1301, 1302) without unalienable rights enumerated in the BOR. The NDAA terminated our republic, and declares that the country is "without rule of law".

How can any city/state/federal agency declare war on unalienable rights, war on America?
Because they are.
Because no one is stopping them.
Because 'There is no law', only petty corrupt men.
Only tyrants violating the Constitution, and their hired mercenaries.

Each individual chooses, either to bow down and lick their boots and just follow orders, or chooses to stand and demand his own unalienable rights.

The choices are:
a) Prison Guard at Auschwitz just doing his job following orders, or
b) Defend the Constitution against Domestic Enemies, or
c) Keep out of sight and hope the enforcers do not brutalize you too bad (other than robbing you and your children).

2012 is time to start to Arrest and Try for Treason those who are 'infringing' or otherwise making themselves repugnant to the Constitution.

And let's not forget the 'enforcers'. Swearing to support and defend the Constitution, then bearing arms against those same principles is as heinous a form of treason as can be imagined.

Treason has always been dealt with extremely harshly, especially by those who have been betrayed.

2012 is a time for choosing:
The Constitution and Law?
Rule of corrupt men continuing to do as they please, waging war against America?

Update: Mas Ayoob at Backwoods Home comments that I need to "learn that things don’t work the way you think they should. It’ll be much better for you to find that out in school than in the less-forgiving real world."

His "real world" accepts that enforcers/prosecutors/judges/legislators enable corruption and tyranny as they make themselves repugnant to the Constitution.

WROL enabled by the very people we entrust to prevent such things... sad.

"Sic Semper Tyrannis", Proposed Motto for 2012

Proposal for 2012 WTF Campaign Logo and 'Hook Phrase': "Sic Semper Tyrannis"

some background...
"Sic Semper Tyrannis" translates as "Thus Always unto Tyrants", or "Death unto Tyrants". This phrase is the Virginia state motto, and appears on the state flag and official seals and such.

The phrase is said to have originated with Marcus Junius Brutus during the assassination of Julius Caesar. The phrase has been invoked historically in Europe and other parts of the world as an epithet or rallying cry against abuse of power. The phrase was recommended by George Mason to the Virginia Convention in 1776, as part of the state's seal. [At a previous state convention one year before, Patrick Henry proposed arming the Virginia militia and delivered his "give me liberty or give me death" speech to rally support for the measure. So by 1776 they were deciding on mottos, flags, seals, and crests.] The Seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia shows Virtue, spear in hand, with her foot on the prostrate form of Tyranny, whose crown lies nearby. The Seal was planned by Mason and designed by George Wythe, who signed the United States Declaration of Independence and taught law to Thomas Jefferson.

A common joke in Virginia, referencing the image on the state seal and dating at least as far back as the Civil War, is that "Sic semper tyrannis" actually means "Get your foot off my neck."

The phrase is also the motto of the United States Navy attack submarine named for the state, the USS Virginia. It is also the motto of the U.S. city Allentown, the third largest city in Pennsylvania, and is referenced in the official state song of Maryland. In the U.S. it has particular infamy as the words shouted by John Wilkes Booth on stage after his final discussion with Mr Lincoln at Ford's Theater in Washington DC, on Good Friday, April 14 1865.

Our forefathers said to King George and to Abe Lincoln: "Get your foot off my neck". The series stands at 1-1, and the other team has taken the field and is warming up for round 3. It would be good to win this next match in the series, and deliver unto tyrants what they always deserve.

fyi- Benjamin Franklin's suggestion for the Great Seal of the United States included the phrase:
"Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God."

Ayoob Misrepresents "Why We Carry Guns"

Ayoob at Backwoods Home writes about an elderly couple who were brutally murdered in their home.

Just like this couple-- Jose Guerena was in his home when he was attacked and brutally murdered by violent killers.


The training, and organization, and decision to target and then to kill Jose Guerena was deliberate at each step in the process. The trigger pullers committed murder, as did those who sent them (prosecutor, judge, sheriff). Those who continue to enable them share the blame (prosecutors, judges, state and federal jurisdictions). And that includes those who excuse this and/or support their training, tactics, and deeds, like Mr Ayoob here. "Enforcers uber alles"?

When laws no longer apply, then there is no law, except what corruptocrats want to make up, an 'insiders mafia'. None of the 'perps' in this gang are charged with crimes since there is no law, only 'connections' and 'raw force' in this crime wave of organized theft and violence.

Daily links to injustice can be found here.

The point is not that these thing happen- THE POINT IS THAT THE VIOLENCE IS PREMEDITATED, TRAINED, AND ENABLED. When responsible people draw attention to it and try to point out that such violence and cover-up undermines law and order; then rather then focusing on the data and the problem - -
- some choose to resort to name calling and ad hominem attacks, like Mr Ayoob here and here.
They do this because the data is overwhelming and damning, so they avoid reason while defending the horrific. Notice people bringing data to the discussion, while Mas and Buddies resort to 'name calling' and 'changing the argument' games. Avoiding the substance of arguments reveals the weakness of their position. By refusing to take action to put an end to 'enforcers gone wild', they enable more of the same.

If there was a single 'oathkeeper' that had jurisdiction in such 'enforcer' violence, A SINGLE ONE, then laws would apply, and the concept of law would be preserved. But tribal loyalty is more important than the law, or the unalienable rights of their victims. By continued enabling of such premeditated organized crimes, these perps and their enablers destroy what used to be our system of government. They make themselves repugnant to the concept of law. They make themselves the 'domestic enemies' Matt Bracken writes about.

Q: "Why we carry guns"?
A: Because Tories behaved just like this, abusing the people, and we made them leave.

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it.”
- Frederic Bastiat

“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”
- George Washington

 “When law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law.”
- Frederic Bastiat

“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience.”
- John Locke

It's what we explained to the Tories and their mercenary army of enforcers.
That's "why we carry guns".

Herman Cain and the Fed

Herman Cain supported TARP and has a cozy relationship with the Federal Reserve. He is a bankster-statist. A "rat bastard Hamiltonian".

Cain support for TARP; info here and here and here

Cain served as deputy chairman of the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City from 1992 to 1994, and as chairman from 1995 to 1996; info here and here and here

Cain a Statist; info here and here and here and here

Herman Cain shares many ideas with that rat bastard Hamilton; more info here and here and here

from wikipedia
Hamilton was a nationalist who emphasized strong central government and successfully argued that the implied powers of the Constitution could be used to fund the national debt, assume state debts, and create the government-owned Bank of the United States.

Geheimstaatspolizei in Tennesee: "Terrorists on the Interstate"

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

NewsChannel 5 report by Adam Ghassemi:
PORTLAND, Tenn. -- You're probably use to seeing TSA's signature blue uniforms at the airport, but now agents are hitting the interstates to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR).

"Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate," said Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons.

Tuesday Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state.

Agents are recruiting truck drivers, like Rudy Gonzales, into the First Observer Highway Security Program to say something if they see something.

"Not only truck drivers, but cars, everybody should be aware of what's going on, on the road," said Gonzales.

It's all meant to urge every driver to call authorities if they see something suspicious.

"Somebody sees something somewhere and we want them to be responsible citizens, report that and let us work it through our processes to abet the concern that they had when they saw something suspicious," said Paul Armes, TSA Federal Security Director for Nashville International Airport.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol checked trucks with drug and bomb sniffing dogs during random inspections.

"The bottom line is this: if you see something suspicious say something about it," Gibbons said Tuesday.

The random inspections really aren't any more thorough normal, according to Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Tracy Trott who says paying attention to details can make a difference. Trott pointed out it was an Oklahoma state trooper who stopped Timothy McVay for not having a license plate after the Oklahoma City bombing in the early 1990s.

Tuesday's statewide "VIPR" operation isn't in response to any particular threat, according to officials.

Armes said intelligence indicates law enforcement should focus on the highways as well as the airports.

Domestic Enemies of the Constitution.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

CNN Captures 'Tea Party'

The 'Communist News Network' has been on a jihad demonizing the 'Tea Party'.
Now CNN is working to help select the 'Tea Party' candidate.
And why pick a candidate based on a 'beauty queen' format? It's an artificial scenario, not related to running the country. 

Wolf is driving a wedge to discredit every candidate and turn one against the other. Audience questions are "Wolf-Morphed" into whatever Wolf wants to discuss- Because he's the voice of the 'Tea Party', apparently.

Silly that the left picks their candidate, and sheep let them do it.

Fundamental Change, As Promised

(unattributable image: variously posted in numerous places, all unattributed.)

Just hold still a little longer, so they can destroy the last few vestiges of our civilization, sell off the last few assets, and steal the last few crumbs from the pension funds. This thing will take generations to bootstrap back up, but the miseducated masses no longer know their own history or culture...

You Maniacs! You blew it up! God Damn you! God damn you all to hell!

Gop re-enables Dem insanity of even more credit.

No one has put it more succinctly than Ann Barnhardt at American Thinker:
h/t WRSA
Back to the $2 Trillion that Obama is being handed. I honestly think that most people in this country have no understanding of simple counting numbers. Do you not understand how much a trillion is? Where do you think this money is going to come from -- who has two trillion dollars to loan us? China? Nope. Not even close. China's entire GDP is only $6 Trillion. Do you honestly think that China is going to loan us one third of their total annual economic production? China was a huge creditor to us back when $100 Billion was considered a staggeringly large amount of money - which was four years ago. Now $100 Billion is literally a rounding error. Do you realize that there are only a handful of nations of this planet that even have a GDP in excess of $2 Trillion? If these countries loaned us every penny of their GDP, it wouldn't even be $2 Trillion:

Canada ($1.57 T)
India ($1.54 T)
Russia ($1.46 T)

Are you starting to understand the scope of what we are talking about now? Obama is going to embezzle considerably more than the entire economic output of Canada, India or Russia to his cronies before the 2012 election -- and that is just counting this round of spending. This doesn't include the other $5 Trillion he has already burned through since 2009.

Obama is the enemy. Obama is a Marxist-Communist usurper and puppet front for a cabal of Marxist-Communists who are actively trying to destroy the United States of America. Everything they have done, are doing, and will do has the single goal of collapsing and destroying the U.S. economy, military, constitutional government and culture. What part of "Marxist Revolution" do you not understand?

The Obama regime is not a failure. The Obama regime is not incompetent. The Obama regime has achieved more in two and a half years than anyone could have possibly foreseen. It has debased the currency by 50% of the GDP and guaranteed that our economy will collapse. It has looted the Treasury for more than the size of a top-ten economy and embezzled that wealth into the hands of their fellow Marxists in preparation for the final collapse of the United States. It has ground the economy of the United States to a screeching halt. It has destabilized the entire Muslim world and ensured that there will be a nuclear war centered around Israel within the decade.

The Obama regime has no interest whatsoever in "stimulus" or "getting folks back to work." How can you not understand this? How can we possibly win this war if we refuse to come to terms with the fact that we are in fact fighting a war.
(read the whole thing)

Phoenix Capital Research, via Ol'Remus, via ZeroHedge, summed it up this way:
The monetary interventions, bailouts, and stimulus plans implemented between 2007-2009 were unprecedented. In just three years we spent more money than WWI, WWII, and the New Deal combined... Please note, they DID NOT pay off the debt or let the entities default (solutions that would have SOLVED the problem)...
We are living in historic times: A marxist coup as everyone stood watching, and wondering if anyone was going to do anything to stop them.

Quotes: Which community organizer said these?
"All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state."

"The truth is that men are tired of liberty."

"It is the State which educates its citizens in civic virtue, gives them a consciousness of their mission and welds them into unity."

"_____ should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power."

"The keystone of the ______ doctrine is its conception of the State, of its essence, its functions, and its aims. For _____ the State is absolute, individuals and groups relative."

Each one is a Benito Mussolini quote, where he is explaining a thing he called 'facism', to differentiate it from a different things called 'communism' and 'socialism'. Fill in the blanks with 'facism'.

Benito was a community organizer, and became known for his infamous pose. Same pose as Barry Baraq Mohammad Hussein Sotero Obama.

Which is the more accurate technical description of the Sotero "change": communism, facism, socialism, Obamao-ism, what?

Creating a Standing Army in our Midst, to Dominate the Citizenry

h/t Zero Hedge

Military Training Exercises to Take Place In and Around Boston
For Immediate Release
July 25, 2011
Released By: Mayor's Office
For More Information Contact: Mayor's Press Office

Joint federal military training exercises will take place within and around the Boston area between July 26th and August 5th. Military personnel will conduct training exercises to ensure the military's ability to operate in urban environments, prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirements. Helicopters will be used in some exercises.

The Boston Police Department is working with military personnel to coordinate training sites that will minimize negative impacts on our Boston citizens and their daily routines. Safety precautions have been taken to prevent risk to the general public and the military personnel involved. With that, training site locations are not open to the public and will be guarded by uniformed personnel to provide additional safety.

Does that ring a bell? Here are some thoughts from The Declaration of Independence
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
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:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent
More lines crossed. More bounds overstepped.

Are you a Communist, or a Citizen?

Here's an interesting 9 minute video; an archaeoligical artifact from a mere 50 years ago...
"We are living in an era marked by the growth of socialism."

"... the presence in America of socialists and communist propogandists, dedicated to the establishment of a new order. The communist 5th columnists among us are working for a world dictatorship. To accomplish this, their strategy is to undermine the confidence of our people in the American system and the principles on which it stands. The socialists among us seek to bring about a gradual chang in our system, by gradually destroying the principle of private ownership of property, and substituting the socialist principle of government ownership."

"But let's put the full challenge in a few words: The world is caught in an era of socialist expansion. Most of the nations are effected. And America is a target. In fact, the number one target of both the socialists and the communists. If we permit our great system to crumble through the apathy of our citizenship, we shall lose not only our our freedom but our prosperity ..."

What are our "Obligations of Citizenship"?
1. Understand the American way of life and what makes it tick.
2. Understand communism and their tactics.
3. Understand socialism and it's disguises.
4. Understand propoganda techniques of communism / socialism.
5. Take interest in public schools and colleges, and what is taught.
6. Take interest in local and state government.
7. Strive for spiritual growth.
8. Dedicate a part of your everyday life to citizenship.
"... in our republic, authority is surrounded by an ingenious system of checks and balances that prevents autocratic or dictatorial rule- That is, if we maintain the Constitution as our basic law."
Imagine where we'll be in another 50 years.

Claire Wolf: Question of the Century Nominee

Claire asks a question, here:

One of the hardest things about living in a police state is watching other people be crushed by state power and feeling unable to do a thing about it.

We read Pastor Neimoeller’s famous lines as a warning to ourselves. But really, there’s not much chance of heeding the warning in a way that changes anything — except perhaps for the worse.


We can’t watch others be crushed without feeling a stab of their agony. We know, as others are crushed, that the crushing machinery gathers momentum and will roll toward our own lives. We know that not only we, but the ideals that sustain civilization, are being crushed. And that matters to us. Matters vitally, painfully, heartbreakingly. No matter what else we do, we can’t stand by and watch that happen without feeling an obligation — or at least a passionate longing — to do our all to stop it.


But how? What? And why does it keep rolling on so inexorably when so many are speaking out?


So we come back to the question: What’s the responsibility of a resident of a police state? If mere speaking out doesn’t change anything, what does? And how do we do it?
Read the whole thing. The article captures the dilemma of every moral person, just now. How can we make it stop?

Claire is smarter than most of us. We'll see more of her thoughts in the next installment (part 2+?).

But here is my response, today- We don't have to like it. But we cannot ignore it.
Like being raped while watching others being raped. Something must be done.

“Let me see your papers”, and “Just following orders” were phrases we heard about other countries and other times- Now we see it here.

One thing I have been doing (perhaps stupidly) is engaging local ‘enforcers’ in discussions, and also on-line. I commented several times at Massad Ayoob Backwoods Blog regarding the murder of Jose Guerena- But Mr Ayoob sides with the storm troopers ‘just doing their job’, ‘just following procedure’ as they kill and kidnap citizens. Every suspect must submit or die, in his weltanschau. Anyone who dares question the tactics is no longer viewed as a citizen/his employer, but rather as a “cop hater”. So they create their mental barriers, to allow them to do what they do, to continue to pay their mortgage, to continue to ‘follow orders’.

I now understand how the colonists felt when the Redcoats demanded obedience.

It’s like watching the gate guards at Auschwitz go to work. You talk to them about what they’re doing, and they are so keen on ‘just following orders’ that they have lost sight of civilization.

When reason doesn’t work, when the ballot box and the courts accelerate the tyranny, when tyranny advances if you continue playing by ‘their rules’… Then what? What did the colonists do? They left for a new land.
And when tyranny tried to ensnare them there- What did they do? And where did all the prominent Torries go, during and after the ‘troubles’?

“Sic Semper Tyrannis” is the Virginia State motto.

In the end, tyranny is about raw naked force.
Most of the signers of the Declaration were captured, killed, or bankrupt.
So the bottom line then, is that Liberty is about putting an end to raw naked force of tyranny.

or Death

Avoiding trouble only works if trouble leaves you and your family alone. But tyranny is the thing that does not leave you alone, it demands your subservience. Obey or be punished. Lightbulbs or poisonous mercury. No coal, no oil, no nukes, no jobs. Tax or death. Only the state can decide which businesses are allowed, what media may report, which children get scholarships, which special friends get favors and kickbacks.

Do we let our children be enslaved in debt? Do we let our heritage be robbed from them? Do we let our civilization be consumed by locust? Do we watch and do nothing but type and whine about it? Do we apologize to our children, for what we have enabled through inaction?

Do what you must, because you can do no other.


“So we come back to the question: What’s the responsibility of a resident of a police state? If mere speaking out doesn’t change anything, what does? And how do we do it?”-Claire

We have been here before.

What did the colonists do?
Complain, petition, seek redress- for years, in every way possible. They tried avoidance, and not participating. But tyranny is intrusive, and it damaged all their lives, and ate out their substance.
And then, finally, they defended themselves against the aggressors who demanded obedience.

After many years of widespread conflict and suffering, the Torries were eventually purged, and their storm troopers too. Washington crossed the Delaware to kill one large group of mercenaries in their beds, on Christmas morning, as they slept.

That’s what happens when people start to say no to tyranny: Tyranny masses forces and comes to your village to take you guns, your property, your business, and your children’s future. And at some point- People say no. Some guy stands in front of a tank, or something. Or they gather guns and powder, and then stand on the village green- Just to say “Oh Hell No!”.

Saying “Oh Hell No!” invariably leads to ‘crossing the Delaware’ or ‘crossing the Rubicon’. That’s what comes next, when they won’t stop pushing, and we the people say “Oh Hell No!”.

They won’t stop pushing.
There’s going to be fight.
Let’s win it.
Beans, Bullets, Bandaids, Brains, Balls, Buddies.
PT. Plan contingencies. Read Sun Tzu and your bible. Kiss your children good night when you tuck them in. We’ve been here before.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:
from bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to apathy;
from apathy to dependence;
from dependency back again into bondage.”
-Alexander Tytler, 1770

“But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations…This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.”

Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand.
