It is become beyond dispute that we are being subjugated by a lawless Federal tyranny that we seem powerless to stop.
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. – Declaration of Independence
Part 1: Federal Lawlessness Gives Rise To A Beast
Lawless. That is what the U.S. Government has officially become under the Obama regime. That is not to say that there has not been lawlessness in government until Obama, there has been plenty. The difference is that until 2009 – lawlessness and corruption was never institutionalized. Today it is standard practice at all levels of the federal government, making it the status quo in the highest offices in the land.
This is the core of what Obama really intended with “Fundamental Transformation”
Under his direction and with the assistance of the Ruling Class of both parties, the Federal Government is now a law and power unto itself. The Executive makes laws by decree and empowered unaccountable bureaucrats with law-making ability that according the Constitution is reserved for Congress alone. Such bureaucrats and ‘czars’ now make policy designed to punish, rob and enslave peoples and their property to the whims and dictates of the state without public recourse. Lawlessness that is ignored, excused and said to be ‘necessary’, given lawful legal status via ‘precedent’.
The Congress itself has surrendered almost all it’s power via the Ruling Class in both parties to the Executive Branch, refusing to hold Obama’s regime accountable for clear violations of the Constitution while granting the Executive authority ascribed for Congress alone. From declaring and waging war to ceding it’s taxing and spending power to Obama – the Ruling Class in Congress have abdicated their Constitutional duty. This has enabled a defacto dictatorship that most Americans pretend does not exist.
In Washington, the Constitution is almost wholly ignored, usurped and only referenced when it benefits the protection or imposition of government rule and jurisdiction. Even then, government rule and jurisdiction is often inserted in places it has no lawful authority. Such as the EPA declaring jurisdiction over all water – creeks and streams and even rainwater runoff on private property – in the United States. Such ‘laws’ are often drafted in secret and imposed upon us with little-to-no public input or passed into “law” without a single member of Congress reading the bill.
The 10th Amendment is wholly ignored while courts tell states they have no standing in Federal matters to enforce laws the Obama regime has made policy to ignore. Precedent is now the mechanism upon which rulings are handed down, and policies enacted rather than examination of each through the prism of the Constitution.
This is a candid fact: law in America now is arbitrary, determined to be whatever those in power decree it to be while exempting themselves from those very same laws.
And don’t look to the courts for protection and sanction against a corrupt and totalitarian state – they are part and parcel of foisting it upon us all.
Consider, actual laws passed by the majority of the people in the States are being decreed null and void by an Activist Judiciary and Just-Us Department pushing various agendas from homosexuality, Racial minority preference policies to South American insurgent amnesty. What the voters overwhelming pass via referendum and ballot is overturned and declared a ‘violation of the Constitution’ usually via pretzel twists of logic to justify.
Case-in-point; how many state laws, amendments and bans on homosexual marriage have the courts struck down like dominoes in recent months? The will of the majority is totally ignored and decreed to be void, and those who refuse to comply are being warned they will be forced to accept and perform abomination as a matter of “law”. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg violated the Judicial code of conduct by warning the Circuit Court judiciary that it must rule in favor of Homosexual Marriages in several states it is being challenged or face having themselves being ruled against by SCOTUS.
There is a mountain of evidence in our faces that the current federal government is corrupt beyond measure and no longer bound by the rule of law in a civil society as established by our Founders. Indeed it is a doctrine on the Left and often cited by the MarxoFascist politicians in power – that a document written by dead people should have no bearing on the living. This is the actual intent they mean by the term ‘Living Constitution”. It should be ignored, changed or abolished on whatever whim is decided by those in power when it is decreed to be a benefit to “the people” because government should not be “held hostage by a bunch of dead white racist slave-owners”.
And such is the blueprint for totalitarian tyranny and oppression. The kind one finds in Socialist utopias like North Korea and Cuba,
Such is not a Republic. Such is a vile meddlesome “progressive” tyranny of the likes not even the Founders suffered.
The fact is friend, we are a society no longer governed by moral law, but ruled by the tyranny of wicked, unprincipled men that mirrors the basest of society that affords them their seats of power for a promise and a bribe.
The reason for this is that a majority of the American people are no longer governed by God. They pay Him lip service at best and perhaps warm a seat for an hour or two once-a-week, but no longer are living by and promoting His Moral Laws and Authority as Supreme. Churches are shrinking and a growing majority of Americans now claim they are ‘spiritual’ rather than beholden to biblical foundations. The zeitgeist promoted by the media and entertainment is that Government is now god; the arbiter of morality and fairness. In this devolution of society, the federal beast became self-aware of it’s need to dominate all life and behavior in the country and is acting on that inherent desire to rule.
Such a government is a blasphemy to a Biblically-adherent people, and it’s institutionalized corruption and promotion of wickedness renders it illegitimate.
There are many candid facts in recent news that make the illegitimacy of this government self-evident. I’ll cite just two, but I am certain you would be able to find myriad such examples to illustrate the fact that the current federal government in Washington D.C. has no legitimate moral authority over a people it now rules rather than represents.
The greatest illustration of the fact the federal government is now lawless, can be seen by the IRS scandal whereby the Executive and his party used the agency to intimidate, harass and punish Americans who are considered to be political opponents of Obama and his party.
The most feared federal agency in the United States is the IRS, which has the power to seize everything you own and every thing your posterity will ever own, including rendering you to prison – where you are guilty until proving your innocence in tax court. Most Americans comply with the IRS out of fear, not out of respect. A real and present danger is that we are growing complacent by the precedent of the IRS being used as a political weapon at the same time it absolves itself from the same requirements mandated upon the citizenry.
In a Congressional investigation of the abuses at the IRS, the agency’s heads not only asserted that they are above the law, but insinuated that the law is not applicable to them. When hard drives were demanded, they asserted the drives were ‘damaged’ and the e-mail evidence sought by Investigators, “lost”, negating to report the “loss” in violation of the Federal Records Act since that evidence was under subpoena.
If the NSA has copies of every email on this planet from the service vendors, from every citizen’s electronic communication, there is without a doubt copies of her emails on some server somewhere. But the entire regime from Obama to the InJustice Department is concealing, obstructing and conspiring. That truth became evident in an admission from Obama’s Just-Us department itself: DOJ Admits Lois Lerner’s E-mails Exist – But Refuses To Retrieve or Release Them To Investigators.
Now there is a deliberate pattern of this excuse after the IRS now claims that it has lost MORE emails from FIVE other IRS agents involved in specific congressional probes into the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. These include the IRS employees in Cincinnati who were initially blamed for the scandal, and their e-mails to Lois Lerner and other high-up officers in the IRS that were under subpoena have ‘gone missing’.
Every official testifying before Congress, including Koskinen has committed and is committing perjury on this. He stated yesterday, that not only did the IRS lose subpoenaed files from Lois Lerner’s crashed computer hard drive, but the same fate befell her Blackberry which Koskinen stated was destroyed reiterating that there is no outside system to store agency emails. The IRS chief stated before the Investigative hearing; “Hard drive crashes continue as we speak”. Yet you try to use that same excuse for your tax return, and the full weight and might of punishment is brought to bear upon you.
As expected, the Praetorian Media for Obama has refused to report the story – and the facts are lost in a cacophony of government delay and distraction tactics. The DOJ investigation itself is corrupted while the IRS continues to be used as a weapon of intimidation by Obama and his party.
You would think that such a government agency would maintain it’s integrity to the law so as to affect voluntary compliance with the law. We might say that if the IRS no longer follows the law and instead follows a policy to punish political enemies of Obama and the Democrats, why should you or I follow the law they are in charge of enforcing???
The answer to that is because ‘voluntary’ is no longer a consideration. ‘FORCED COMPLIANCE’ is the intent and as such, laws are arbitrary and irrelevant in carrying out an agenda.
According to the IRS director himself, the IRS is no longer bound by the laws that bind you and I. He stated before a Congressional hearing that “Wherever [they] can, we follow the law” in reference to the fact it had violated the law and inferring the IRS can choose not to follow the law if it deems it imprudent.
The implication is that it is simply impossible for a federal agency to follow the law, yet the IRS is authorized to punish any citizen who violates tax law, knowingly or unknowingly.
Now perhaps you might begin to understand why a lawless regime and party put the IRS in charge of mandating compliance with ObamaCare.
This is just the IRS scandal. What about federal agencies that are now tasked with implementing Obama’s ideological agenda rather than upholding the law?
EPA Abolishment of your rights.
The IRS is not the only Federal agency run by the Executive that has been used by Obama as a weapon.
Here’s another Federal agency, unaccountable to the American people, defying laws and being used as a weapon to harass and intimidate political opponents, chosen objects for policy implementation and a vehicle to strip away your right to property without compensation or recourse.
In a move lawmakers and farmers are calling “the biggest land grab in the history of the world,” the Environmental Protection Agency is requesting jurisdiction over all public and private streams in the United States that are “intermittent, seasonal and rain-dependent.” Control all the water, you control all life. That it seems is the agenda and the intent under the guise of ‘environmental justice’.
Your Constitutional Right to be secure in your property, or to be fairly compensated monetarily for it – no longer applies, because EPA policy trumps the Constitution. I’m not even listing all the recent news about the EPA following Obama’s dictates to shut down electricity plants and coal mines with regulations and requirements so ridiculous that it is obvious to any honest observer that the intent is to destroy the people’s access to affordable electricity. But a mechanism without public oversight or recourse to strip from you, your property and it’s use over ‘water rights’ is no different than if your property was just seized from you at gunpoint because the government decided the tax revenue of your property in the hands of developers is worth more money to them. Oh wait, that’s a real deal too.
These are just two citations of two federal government entities that do not respect or follow the Supreme Law of the Land, and are being used to impose overt tyranny upon us. I could write a blog that would encompass a volume of such instances – but these two illustrate with perfect clarity – that the federal government is completely and totally lawless, implementing tyranny disguised as law. Imposing it in such a way as to be accepted without resistance by a people they seek to rule, and not represent.
Obama has said strategically: “The government is us”. For all the claims of Obama being inept, this statement alone reveals the ingenious mindset of imposing a tyranny.
The insidious purpose of this statement is to equate liberty with government. On one side of his face Obama says tyranny of government is impossible because the government “is us”. Creating the illusion that your neighbors support what is being done to you and it is for your own good. The statement is intended for all to accept the belief that the bigger and more intrusive the government (defined as ‘success’), the more liberty you will have. Any failings or misery are because of the people who will not support the government’s rule and imposition of it’s will, not that government itself is ever to blame. History teaches that despotic leaders use this technique to great effect; creating the illusion that all powerful government is freedom and that the majority WANTS the tyranny being imposed. The acceptance of that mindset is how Beasts of oppression are able to operate without fear of those they intend to subjugate.
The technique is to get the people to believe is that what is being done by government is of the people and therefore everything they do, legitimate.
Even when the government trods upon the Laws of God, of nature and the Constitution.
Since the Federal Government has made it policy to trod upon those things, I declare they no longer have any legitimate moral authority over a people who are beholden to the Laws of God, of nature and the Constitution.
So what to do? What is our recourse? Do we submit and kneel to this? Do we do as Europeans and accept tyranny and corruption as the ‘new normal’? Do we throw up our hands and say “Oh well” consigning our posterity to a lifetime of misery? Do we embrace it and hope to get a parcel of redistributed wealth, property and provision? Do we revolt? How do we revolt? Do we just take to the streets and sow mayhem like we saw in Ferguson, MO??
No. None of the above.
The amazing thing is that most Americans have become totally ignorant of their history and the answer to what we should do now is contained there.
Scripture tells us in Hosea 4:6 –
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”
First we must understand out history and the mindset our Founders once had; a mindset they possessed because their main source of knowledge was the bible, followed by the understanding of history and human nature.
The first battle to be won in any war is of and for the mind. We have to come to an understanding and consensus of agreement that leads directly into courses of action We The People are able and willing and justified to take if we want any hope of holding onto what is left of our liberty.
Details of that history and recommendations we should consider are in Part II of this essay found here.
