A bold and probably last-ditch effort to preserve what is left of our Rights and restore the Republic
Note up front; this blog makes no money from any of the orgs and other sites listed in the Blogroll and in the right column. No essay I write or news item I comment makes any monetary profit. They are simply an extension of the groups and people in whom represent my own personal views, and I am one who likes to share the commonality of purpose these groups and authors have to share. This entry falls into that category: I’m sharing what I believe is a commonality of purpose that we desperately need right now.
I am an admirer of Mark Levin, the Talk Radio firebrand that served in Ronald Reagan’s Justice Department. He has a vast wealth of experience as a litigator and student of our Constitution and our Foundational history. But most of all, he is a warrior who understands that the time for soft talk and half-measures is over, and calls things what they are without apology. As someone who identifies with that character trait; often despised by those who do not like my tone - (albeit I’m probably more ‘extreme’ than Mr. Levin), I believe it is well-past the time to call the evil, the idiocy and the subterfuge of Washington D.C. for what it is.
Many of us feel completely helpless in the face of what I call a MarxoFascist tyranny under the Obama regime and the Ruling Class GOP Oligarchs (Mr. Levin calls them Statists), and as divided as Conservatives seem to be over so many issues, it is disconcerting it seems we can do nothing short of a bloodbath to stem the tide of tyranny coming from the Federal Government.
So Mr. Levin lays out a plan of action in his new book “The Liberty Amendments – Restoring the American Republic” . It is the first REAL plan that would appear to have any viability in this age of deceit and despair.
Mr. Levin details a provision the Founding Fathers actually left for We The People in the Constitution to deal with the kind of tyranny from government we are suffering. Utilizing a specific provision in the Second Provision of Article V of the Constitution of the United States, Mr. Levin boldly lays out a course of action that can halt and stem the tide of tyranny this Republic is withering from, making the case for the kind of true liberty that the Founders intended for us – not the free-for-all anarchy that exists as ‘freedom’ today.
While none of us have been able to read the details of these Amendments that Mark Levin suggests can end the Ruling Class stranglehold on power, it is thusfar the ONLY potentially viable course and cause out there right now. The GOP are worse than eunuchs. The daily evidence shows that the Leadership of the Republican Party are in reality, nothing more than Political Judenrats for the MarxoFascists by assisting their purge of Conservatives from political relevance. Any talk of putting Obama or tyranny in-check by Republicans is just empty rhetoric to keep a dissolving base in tow.
But let me stress the word CAUSE.
Our Founders were united in a single cause on a common foundation. Sadly – we no longer have that foundation today – and I’m speaking of the Foundation John Adams himself referred in terms of the only foundation that our Constitution was able to govern. The Liberty Amendments may be a cause in which to rally and focus – and I suggest to those of faith – that the Liberty Amendments Mr. Levin proposes MUST – I repeat MUST be framed and discussed within the moral bulwark of biblical religion and faith, otherwise Mr. Levin’s suggested Amendments will fare no better than the first Ten, and possibly never see fulfillment. Liberty and the Gospel go hand-in-hand. We must be a moral people in whom God is the Sovereign, from whom our rights are derived, for only then is our cause justified.
My chief concern is knowing the enemy. When one understands history, when one is honest with facts, such a prospect is not going to materialize without sacrifice. The fact is that the MarxoFascist/Statist/Ruling Class regime in power, ruling us like subjects – is NEVER going to allow an effort to depose them of their power, succeed. They are going to fight it by every and all means possible. They will instigate a bloodbath if needs be, and they will be willing to render the entire nation to ashes rather than lose their grip on power. Such is the nature of the kind of people now in power in Washington. Unmoored from religion and biblical morality. Unmoored from scripture. Unmoored from the civil society. Such men in power are nothing but Beasts, and that nature will be revealed in-full when their feasting on our wealth, liberty and lifeblood is threatened.
The bible tells us that in such endeavors, we need to count the cost. This is one issue that Mark Levin may not have addressed yet, except in perhaps glancing terms.
These Amendments may be our salvation from tyranny if we return to God as a whole people and providence blesses their application. At bare minimum, they are a gift – a gift of having a COMMON CAUSE to rally behind. To give what may become a long, arduous, and even excruciating struggle – a reason to continue to fight.
Because up until now – Conservatives are divided. Americans can barely even agree on what the definition of what liberty itself is. Is it a right to do what one pleases in his own eyes? Or was it’s purpose to serve something higher than self? To enshrine a civil society whereby providence could lead each person to the calling and purpose they may choose to follow? History is full of regimes and governments of men that interfere and even arbitrate what can be followed and worshipped, most often making the State the object of worship itself.
Jefferson said, our Liberties are a gift from God – and too many have already had that conviction removed from their minds. If we believe they are a gift from heaven, will we not fight for that gift? Or will we surrender them to convenience and the temporary promise from tyrants and appeasers that they will spare us evil?
I imagine Mr. Levin would be as John Adams was during the First Continental Congress – and no Dickenson is going to dissuade Mr Levin’s efforts, for this is truly the last stop before powder and artillery become the surest and most effective conciliatory measures we can adopt against tyranny.
Mr. Levin was kind enough to put up on the internet for free – the entire first chapter of his new book that reveals the reasons why this course and cause is now absolutely necessary.

…The nation has entered an age of post-constitutional soft tyranny. As French thinker and philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville explained presciently, “It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”
….Today Congress operates not as the Framers intended, but in the shadows, where it dreams up its most notorious and oppres- sive laws, coming into the light only to trumpet the genius and earnestness of its goings-on and to enable members to cast their votes. The people are left lamebrained and dumbfounded about their “representatives’ ” supposed good deeds, which usually take the form of omnibus bills numbering in hundreds if not thousands of pages, and utterly clueless about the effects these laws have on their lives. Of course, that is the point. The public is not to be informed but indoctrinated, manipulated, and misled.
Unlike the modern Statist, who defies, ignores, or rewrites the Constitution for the purpose of evasion, I propose that we, the people, take a closer look at the Constitution for our preservation. The Constitution itself provides the means for restoring self- government and averting societal catastrophe (or, in the case of societal collapse, resurrecting the civil society) in Article V.
Before anyone gets into a panic and tizzy over the thought of a Con-con, what Mr. Levin looks to propose is LIMITED to the specifics the Framers intended and it cannot become the free-for-all nightmare many envision a Constitutional Convention would become in this day and age. Provided we are able to educate and steer the public to understanding. It is without question, a cause and blueprint for a very long and hard war that WE MUST FIGHT.
I hold no allusions about what the Marxofascists and their allied Judenrats in the GOP/Ruling Class and government will attempt to do to thwart and otherwise demean and diminish this effort. In fact, The Obama regime and those in Federal power have already prepared for what they call “the counter revolution” to their glorious ‘people’s revolution’ (Hope & Change). The evidence exists that this government is prepared for war on it’s own citizens. In fact it is manifest if anyone is honest with the facts. What are 1.6 BILLION rounds of hollow-point ammunition, APCs, tanks for DHS for??? Certainly not Islamic Jihadists. The April 2009 DHS Terror Assessment does not list Muslims or Jihadists – but rather Conservatives, Christians and patriots as the true and real threat to the country.
Should this effort of the Liberty Amendments gain in popularity and effect, those in power will make the cost for anyone attempting to implement these provisions – more than most right now are probably willing to bear.
Ultimately, given history – what they are going to cost each and every one of us who still cherishes liberty, is the cost of our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
