A Prophetic Warning For America Is Coming True

AmericasDestruction

“If we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution, which holds us together, no man can tell, how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us, that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity”.

My friend and historian Bill Federer of American Minute reminds us that these times in which we now see unfolding around us in this country, were warned against by our forbears and patriarchs.  We may want to blame the political leaders, the agendas of radical groups and hedonists for the tyranny this nation has devolved into – but the truth is, you and I, the American Christian are ultimately responsible for surrendering a culture and nation to such evil designs.  We remained silent in the face of evil.

A lukewarm church that will not stand against overt sins and abomination in a culture is a people who will likewise not stand against or resist overt tyranny.  Which explains why the shackles of bondage are being placed upon our necks with absolutely no resistance whatsoever.

DANIEL WEBSTER’S PREDICTION FOR AMERICA COMING TRUE

Bill Federer remembers dire warning against nation that forgets God

One of the five greatest senators in U.S. history, the State of New Hampshire placed his statue in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall. His career spanned almost four decades, serving as secretary of State for Presidents William Harrison, John Tyler and Millard Fillmore. His name was Daniel Webster, born Jan. 18, 1782.

From a New Hampshire farm, he attended Dartmouth College and became the highest paid attorney of his day. He fought the slave trade and negotiated the Webster-Ashburton Treaty, which set the nation’s Northeast boundary.

When South Carolina threatened nullification, he stated: “Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and inseparable!”

When asked what the most profound thought was that ever passed through his mind, Daniel Webster responded: “My accountability to God.”

At the age of 20, Daniel Webster served as the headmaster of Fryeburg Academy in Fryeburg, Maine, where he delivered a Fourth of July Oration in 1802: “If an angel should be winged from Heaven, on an errand of mercy to our country, the first accents that would glow on his lips would be, ‘Beware! Be cautious! You have everything to lose; nothing to gain.’ We live under the only government that ever existed which was framed by the unrestrained and deliberate consultations of the people. Miracles do not cluster. That which has happened but once in six thousand years cannot be expected to happen often. Such a government, once gone, might leave a void, to be filled, for ages, with revolution and tumult, riot and despotism.”

At the age of 70, just eight months before his death, Daniel Webster addressed the New York Historical Society, Feb. 23, 1852: “If we, and our posterity, shall be true to the Christian religion, if we and they shall live always in the fear of God, and shall respect his commandments, if we, and they, shall maintain just, moral sentiments, and such conscientious convictions of duty as shall control the heart and life, we may have the highest hopes of the future fortunes of our country. … It will have no Decline and Fall. It will go on prospering and to prosper.

“But, if we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality, and recklessly destroy the political constitution, which holds us together, no man can tell, how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us, that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity. Should that catastrophe happen, let it have no history! Let the horrible narrative never be written!”

Daniel Webster continued: “We may trust, that Heaven will not forsake us, nor permit us to forsake ourselves. We must strengthen ourselves, and gird up our loins with new resolution; we must counsel each other; and, determined to sustain each other in the support of the Constitution, prepare to meet manfully … whatever of difficulty, or of danger … or of sacrifice, the Providence of God may call upon us to meet.

“Are we of this generation so derelict, have we so little of the blood of our revolutionary fathers coursing through our veins, that we cannot preserve, what they achieved?” he asked. “The world will cry out ‘shame’ upon us, if we show ourselves unworthy, to be the descendants of those great and illustrious men, who fought for their liberty, and secured it to their posterity, by the Constitution of the United States. … We have a great and wise Constitution. We have grown, flourished, and prospered under it, with a degree of rapidity, unequaled in the history of the world. Founded on the basis of equal civil rights, its provisions secure perfect equality and freedom; those who live under it are equal, and enjoy the same privileges.”

Daniel Webster added: “The Constitution has enemies, secret and professed. … They have hot heads and cold hearts. They are rash, reckless, and fierce for change, and with no affection for the existing institutions of their country. … Other enemies there are, more cool, and with more calculation. These have a deeper and more fixed and dangerous purpose. … There are those in the country, who profess, in their own words, even to hate the Constitution.

“Friends of the Constitution must rally and unite … act, with immovable firmness, like a band of brothers, with moderation and conciliation … looking only to the great object set before them, the preservation of the Constitution, bequeathed to them by their ancestors. They must gird up their loins for the work. It is a duty which they owe to these ancestors, and to the generations which are to succeed them.”

Daniel Webster concluded: “Gentlemen, I give my confidence, my countenance, my heart and hand, my entire co-operation to all good men … who are willing to stand by the Constitution. … I hardly know … the manner of our political death. … We shall die no lingering death. … An earthquake would shake the foundations of the globe, pull down the pillars of heaven, and bury us at once in endless darkness. Such may be the fate of this country and its institutions. May I never live, to see that day! May I not survive to hear any apocalyptic angel, crying through the heavens, with such a voice as announced the fall of Babylon, ‘Ἔπεσεν, ἔπεσεν, Αμερικη ἡ μεγάλη, καὶ ἐγένετο κατοικητήριον δαιμονίων, καὶ φυλακὴ παντὸς πνεύματος ἀκαθάρτου’ (Greek: ‘Is fallen, is fallen, America the Great has become a habitation of demons and a hold for every unclean spirit’).”

Life Imitating Art: Liberty Dies To Thunderous Applause

Absolutely everything a sane American needs to know about Obama’s State of The Revolution speech on Tuesday is contained in the following 2 minutes:

UPDATE – It is absolutely AMAZING that of the thousands of clips of the Star Wars trilogy that have been on Youtube for YEARS, the video I posted has been blocked worldwide by Youtube based on a supposed complaint by ‘Fox’, which no longer has copyright to those movies save the first one, since they were sold to Disney by Lucasfilm.  I uploaded the edit onto the link provided, and it will be interesting to see how long it will remain before they too block it.

See, the video is a perfect parallel of the transition of the Old Republic in Star Wars Episode III, into a despotic tyranny by a dictator – with nearly identical clips of Obama’s speech on Tuesday night.  As Senator Amidala notes the delegates clapping like trained seals of what will eventually become their doom and slavery; “So this is how liberty dies…. to thunderous applause”.

Fundamentally Transformed Into An Imperial Fascist Oligarchy: What Do We Do Now?

DCIllegitimate2

The Federal Behemoth in Washington no longer has any legitimate authority over a free people.  So what now?  Our own history provides the answer.

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 2: What Do We Do Now?

In Part 1 of this essay, I laid out the evidence that the federal government is being run by an ideological oligarchy that has corrupted the entire institution of national government and grown into a tyranny.  I specifically cited two examples of federal agencies that are completely lawless and being used as weapons against the American people to abolish Constitutional rights.  That was last quarter of last year.

Today the examples are tenfold what they were when I originally wrote the essay.  The Executive power issues decrees, not even Executive Orders anymore – just “memoranda” that is then carried out as if it was ratified by every person in the legislature.  The Congress passes omnibus spending resolutions without a single member reading the thousands of pages of moneys robbed and spent from We The People into unpayable mountains of debt in the tens of trillions; when the people overwhelmingly vote representatives into office to STOP this descent into tyranny – they are immediately corrupted and threatened with punishment if they do not obey the will of the Ruling Class leadership and fall into line like seig-heiling zombies.

The plain truth is this, whether you will admit it openly or not: the federal government can no longer be trusted to safeguard our rights, our liberties or the rule of law to effect our happiness OR our security (open borders with Executive Amnesty decreed anyone?).  It has abused and usurped power from the people to implement a design to reduce us all under absolute Despotism.  It has made itself above the Law, outside the Law and a law unto itself.  In short, it is no different than if the Mafia had taken over the nation.

So what can we do? The Declaration of Independence states that we have a duty to fulfill in the case of tyranny.  The argument being waged among those of us who recognize where we have arrived, is what form of ‘throwing off such government’ entails in this ‘enlightened age?  Some point to elections and civility within the existing system as our path to throwing off a tyrannical yoke.  Let’s take a look at those arguments.

Some say write and call your federal Representatives.  I cannot think of anything that resembles passing wind better than this suggestion.  I offer that this is as ineffectual as sending another Olive Branch Petition to the Throne of King George.  The results will be the same; repeated injury en masse.  For petitioning our rulers for a redress of grievances is now being met with the same contempt and charge of sedition as it was when George III did it.  Or to use the same phrase as the Declaration: repeated injury.

Some say protest.  Another wasted effort.  The amount of disdain and contempt by the Ruling Class for liberty-minded Americans and Conservative Christians is off the scale.  When hundreds of thousands took the steps of the Capitol to protest ObamaCare and flooded town hall meetings, the Ruling Class ignored and demonized them declaring them to be ‘terrorists’ .  When citizens called their representatives to complain,  phones are left unanswered or off the hook and e-mailboxes are left full without reply.  If an answer is received, often it is a useless form letter or repeated injury.

washington-tea-party-rally

Some say elect more Republicans.  Well, we have over 20 years of results by a people who have been doing so, and I say that is a proven exercise in practicing insanity.  The GOP and the nation continue to pick up speed Leftward, until today we are fundamentally transformed into a Marxist/Fascist oligarchy.

The last election more than showcased the fact that the Will of The People will be ignored, undermined and thwarted each time the Oligarchy decides it will not allow itself to be restrained by The People.

WeeperODaHouse

So what shall we do?   Is it time to grab your gun, pitchforks and torches and head to the village green to face the Redcoats?  That history is certainly growing in consideration among many.

minutemen

Some will argue and rightfully so, that such an acton would give the Fascist juggernaut now ruling us the justification to do what they have already prepared to do to put down their political enemies and create the climate of fear that is next on the schedule to be implemented in the nation to criminalize the very spirit that birthed the nation.

So then what now?  Do we do nothing?  Do we just keep voting in this shell game of a corrupted system and blindly hope that someday, someone will do something that is not an attack on liberty?

What can we do in the face of our nation being fundamentally transformed into an Imperial Marxist/Fascist Oligarchy with a Roman-esue Senate doing the bidding of a Caesar with Praetorians in the media and every federal agency ready to pounce on whomever is targeted on command?

Roman Senate

Our own history provides the answer to what God Himself honored in granting a determined bunch of farmers willing to sacrifice everything, a victory over the greatest military might on earth at the time.

The answer is this: We refuse to comply with edicts from the Federal Beast.  We ignore unjust “laws” and “requirements” that contravene the Laws of God, the Constitution and your natural rights as established by God. We no longer consent to be governed by such a tyrannical cabal and as such, we from this point forward, refuse to comply with it.  We must remind ourselves that ‘It is better to obey God than men’ (Acts 5:29) as scripture says.  He is Our Sovereign, not the regime and it’s proponents now attempting to rule us.

That is what we must do.

And make no mistake, you will be called an insurrectionist, a rebel, a domestic terrorist for daring to defy the bullies in D.C., to which I offer this wisdom from Benjamin Franklin “Disobedience to tyrants is obedience to God”.  I state again, the entire Federal Governmental Beast is become tyrannical.

From a purely secular standpoint – since all the branches of the Federal Government can ignore the Supreme Law of the Land; refuse to comply with it’s limitations;  decide not to enforce ‘laws’ they do not agree with; and issue decrees of new laws that contravene the existing Constitution; deem treaties signed by the Executive without Congressional ratification ‘law’ – why then are the people obligated to follow what the Rulers on High demand?  Can we not also ignore their “laws”; refuse to comply with their edicts; decide not to obey “laws” we do not agree with and deem ‘memoranda’ issued by executive decree unlawful and of no effect? Or have we truly arrived at the time where law only applies to the “little people”; we serfs ruled on high by a Ruling Caste? Are some animals more equal than others in this fundamentally transformed nation?

The answer is obviously ‘yes’ to the latter judging facts and events currently ongoing.

Yet let this truth ring in your ears: a gun to our proverbial heads is the only power a tyranny such as the current Federal Government has over us.

Read that again and let it sink in: the only power the current Federal Government has over us, is a gun to our head with the threat to pull the trigger and put us down.  All they have is the threat to strip you of your wealth, property and life at the end of the guns that serve the state and the Caesar.  That is the only power they now have.

It no longer has any legitimate authority under Heaven, or the Constitution they have usurped and ignored, therefore We are no longer obligated under Heaven to abide such a tyranny.

From a biblical standpoint the question becomes; are we obligated to subject ourselves to governing authorities that are tyrannical and contravene the Laws of God and our rights?

I know I know, Pastors are busy preaching Romans 13 from the pulpits on orders from the government and some have been ordered to turn over their sermons to government officials.  Still many more are enslaved to the understanding that to defy any government authority is rebelling against God.

However, I hold that the Romans 13 argument in the context of obeying THIS CURRENT federal beast, is bogus.  Romans 13 specifically tells us that Authorities under God exist to punish evil.  What happens when a government authority becomes perverted and celebrates evil and exists to punish the God-fearing?  Are we still supposed to submit to that?  Are edicts and “laws” passed by such an entity biblically required of Christ followers to obey?

In the understanding of what our Founders wrote on the subject, any order or “law” that contravenes God’s Holy Laws and statutes and principles is not a “law” at all, it is forced sin by government upon those they demand follow it.  To them, Galatians 5:1 ended the Quaker argument for obedience to tyranny.  For they saw physical tyranny as no different than spiritual sin.    Most of them understood a physical tyranny such as they were suffering was the direct result of the sin of the whole people, and the 1760’s were filled with the call from pulpits to get the Colonies to repent and become the instruments against sin and tyranny they felt they needed to be.  That became the First Great Awakening.

Yet Pastors today preach that we must submit to such tyranny and limit our duty to praying for Obama and Congress?  I believe those that erroneously follow this bogus argument end up making the government their god, thus breaking the First Commandment.  Submitting to tyranny is not of God, but of Satan. For tyranny sins against Nature’s God and violates the natural Rights endowed upon His People.  As Christians, we have a duty to DEFY and DISOBEY such tyranny, and we have historical precedent for such duties to be blessed by God.

Jonathan Mayhew, one of the first pastors in America to fire the first spiritual volley against the tyranny of the Crown in 1750, spoke at the Old West Church in Boston to lay out the biblical case for disobeying a tyrant and arguing against the Quaker insistence that Romans 13 be followed to the utter end.

As soon as the prince sets himself up above law, he loses the king in the tyrant. He does, to all intents and purposes, unking himself by acting out of and beyond that sphere which the constitution allows him to move in; and in such cases he has no more right to be obeyed than any inferior officer who acts beyond his commission. – Jonathan Mayhew, 1750, ” Discourse Concerning Unlimited Submission

Americans have to come to understand and believe this same thing, before anything else can be done about what we currently are begin ruled by.  Let this sink in a moment and let me paraphrase Mayhew’s admonition in modern American English;  Americans have to come to understand that Obama and the Oligarchy in Congress have set themselves up above the Law, and because they have done this, they have lost the authority in their tyranny.  They have, to all intents and purposes, delegitimized themselves by acting out of and beyond the sphere which the Constitution has allowed them to move in; and in this case they have no more right to be obeyed than any officer who acts beyond their commission.

Understand this; when the government no longer has any legitimate authority over you, all it has in its disposal is brutal force waged at the end of a gun to force it’s will upon you.  At one time we used to recognize that as abject tyranny.  But no wonder, our people no longer recognize sin as biblically defined, and instead have called evil good, and good, evil.  It therefore follows that a majority of our people also do not recognize we are being ruled by a tyranny.  Since Satan is a tyrant and his devices are the instruments of subjugation and slavery – is it no coincidence so many Americans are ignorant of similar devices and instruments being used by government to enslave them?

For those of us NOT ignorant of these devices and what now has established itself over us, how do we respond to a tyranny that they think is ‘elected’ to do as it pleases to us?  A government that states it has lawful  ‘precedent’ to tyrannize us because it is what “the people” want.

Obama said strategically: “The government is us” for the insidious purpose of asserting that the everyone supports government and therefore everything government does, whether tyrannical or not, is legitimate.

Getting a mob on the side of tyranny is a fundamental function of a despotic Oligarchy. To create the illusion that anyone standing up for what is right, is the problem.  A problem that the people will applaud the tyranny to ‘take care of’.  An approval of a final solution to what the power of the state deems a threat to themselves.

Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Pol Pot, Castro and the host of the last few generations of despotic Socialist dictators have all used this same tactic to great effect.

crowd-sieg-heiling

So ask yourself, do we submit to the threat of impoverishment, destitution, bodily harm and death in the vain hope of remaining unscathed?  Have we become ignorant of what ‘We pledge our lives, fortunes and sacred honor’ meant?    Have we gone so far as to accept that this government is there for our good?   If we do, we break the First Commandment by allowing government to become our god, no different than if Shaadrack, Meschak and Abednego had complied with Nebuchadnezzar and bowed to the image of gold.  Submitting to tyranny therefore is breaking the first Commandment.  This was the staunch belief of those who fought the lawful, legal authority of the Crown of England over the Colonies.

My countrymen, we are dealing with a Beast.  One that not only contravenes it’s established authority within the bounds of the Constitution, but the Federal Beast defies The Most High’s Authority with the agenda it has foisted upon the nation.

When King George III and his Parliament issued the Stamp Act, the Tea Act, and the Intolerable Acts – the Colonists openly defied and refused to comply with those decrees.  Instructively, upon the establishment of the Tea Act, the Sons of Liberty famously chucked all the tea from the East India Tea Company that the Crown was forcing on the Colonists, into Boston Harbor in 1773 – rather than pay the tax.  This resulted in the blockade of Boston and an ensuing siege intended to starve Massachusetts into submission.

Notice the order of events in this history: the tyranny of the governing authority issues decrees that trod upon the inalienable rights of the people.  The People eventually refuse to comply with those decrees and openly defy them. The Authority then invokes punitive and punishing measures against those that dare defy them.  They attempt impoverishment,  Siege and privation.  Then, if the subjects still refuse to submit and bow down, force of arms is deployed to put down their ‘rebellion’ – with the intent to kill and imprison any who dare challenge the authority.

It is at that stage, and at that point that the God-ordained inviolate Right of self defense is authorized, and indeed was used against the governing authorities.  To be blunt – when the tyrants sent armed shock troops to seize their weapons and force them to comply at gunpoint and occupation – the Colonists resisted the authority of the crown with lethal means.

Which by the way, is the ENTIRE reason and purpose of the Second Amendment, and trust me when I say that the Regime in power will eliminate that Right as soon as they are able to do so because they KNOW what the intent of that Amendment is, which is why every single despotic regime that comes into power ALWAYS disarms the very people they intend to destroy.

So again, what do we do now?

We do as our forbears. We should first repent of our individual sins, work towards national repentance – and refuse to comply with the wickedness and tyranny being foisted on us by Imperial decree. As history teaches, a tyranny will never abide or allow a people who refuse to comply with it’s edicts and demands.  They will crush such people and/or force them to comply by imposing every form of despotism, punishment and threat it has at it’s disposal.

Nothing new under the sun.  Our Founders understood that completely.

When the Signers of the Declaration declared their vote for Independence and put their names to the parchment, it was not lost on a single one of them the gravity of what they had just done.  They understood that in all practicality, they just signed their own death warrants.  A long silence settled on the Continental Congress as everyone silently contemplated what their action would result in.  The quiet was broken by Samuel Adams who defined what it was that they had really just accomplished by voting to rebel and defy the King and Parliament.  He said:

“We have this day restored the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient. He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting of the sun, let His kingdom come.” – Samuel Adams July 4th, 1776

The revolution against the lawful authority of a government that became a tyranny was a direct affirmation that the King and parliament had usurped God’s Sovereignty over His People.  Refusing to comply, and then resisting the force being sent to subjugate them – was a solemn duty for the Christian, and it was that understanding and determination that led to the willing sacrifices to establish liberty on this land.

Sadly, human nature has not changed in 238 years, and neither has man’s desire to rule over others.  America was an anomaly in all written human history, yet today we willingly have surrendered ourselves to the very system that has enslaved people since The Garden, submitting to a government that makes itself absolute ruler.  A free people should only ever remain beholden to the Supreme Governor of the Universe, not submitting itself to a tyranny that stands for overt sin, wickedness, corruption and greed.

Know this truth – a people who will not be governed by God, will be ruled by the tyranny of men. 

If we would be free indeed, then submitting to God first is our duty – and then to stand against any encroachment made against it by every and all means.

Our history gives us the clear blueprint of what we can and should do from this point forward, in resisting tyranny.    The tyranny we suffer today may actually be insidiously worse than what the Colonists endured, because so many refuse to see it as a tyranny.

C.S. Lewis adroitly notes the kind of ‘soft tyranny’ that Alexis DeToqueville warned about:

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

The soft tyranny that we have allowed ourselves to live under is now morphing into a police state that has iron fists staged all over the nation.  We either refuse to comply and be ready to suffer the inevitable efforts of punishment by the illegitimate authority in the righteous cause of Restoring The Sovereign in our lives.  Or we surrender to the tyranny of men and the god they have erected to subjugate us.

Refuse. Defy.  Then, when the tyrants send agents of the state to force it’s will, Resist.

Will we cry “Give us Liberty or give us Death!” or will we cry “Give us the promise of bread so we can live!”??

It is up to us now to decide how we will respond to tyranny, for assuredly those in power have already decided how they intend to deal with you.

ObamaCare Has No Legitimate Authority

DefyObamaCare

ObamaCare Architect Jonathan Gruber confirms they lied to fool the people to pass the bill because ‘Americans are too stupid” to accept and understand the truth.

UPDATE With NEW VIDEO: “It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter,” Gruber said at the Honors Colloquium 2012 at the University of Rhode Island.

He confirms they lied to pass ObamaCare because Americans are ‘too stupid’ – not once, but multiple times on different occasions.

Does that piss you off?

Apparently not.  Most Americans have no idea what was done to pass an unConstitutional, bogus infringement on your life.

Just imagine, that during an “off-thecuff” press conference, former President Bush said that his Administration had to lie to the American people about WMDs in Iraq to get us into war over there because we were “too stupid” to know what was good for us.  The press, the media, the Left would go bonkers and the streets would fill with violent protests.

So it’s interesting that in the case of ObamaCare – when the architect admits they lied in order to get ObamaCare passed – because the American people are too stupid to know what is good for them…. that the press and media corps in this country refuse to report on it, Talk Radio and Fox News being the exception.

Since we know Nancy Pelosi said that ‘We have to pass it [ObamaCare] so you can find out what is in it”, we also are learning that they decided that they had to lie about it, in order to get it passed.  And Congress and the Supreme Court went along with the lie, redefined the lie and made the lie a force of ‘law’.

It is NOT a ‘law’.  It is tyranny – plain and simple, and the American people have a duty to defy, refuse, resist and oppose such tyranny by any and every means available at their disposal.

ObamaCare was built on a foundation of lies in order for the government to take control of your life by force if necessary.  Why do you think they put the IRS in charge of enforcing it??  They will crush you economically before sending armed agents to take everything you own and imprison you for refusal to comply.

Like the rest of the federal government, ObamaCare has no legitimate authority.  All it has is the power of a gun being put to our heads and reserving power to decide who gets healthcare and who does not.  Who lives, and who dies.

Not even King George III wielded such tyranny over the Colonists.

Obama Blames America’s Founding Father’s For “Gridlock”

ObamaRushmore

Obama says the Constitution puts Democrats at a “disadvantage” citing it as a “problem” while lamenting Republicans have ‘disproportionate clout’.

What did you people think Obama meant when he said this?

So I guess the Constitutional prescription for how our leaders are to be chosen is about to ‘transform’ too by Imperial decree.

Obama blames Founding Fathers’ ‘structural’ design of Congress for gridlock

President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate.

At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population.

“Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us at a disadvantage,” Mr. Obama said.

The Founding Fathers decided in the “Great Compromise” in 1787 to apportion House seats based on population and give each state two seats in the Senate regardless of population. The solution was a compromise between large states and small states in a dispute that nearly dissolved the Constitutional Convention.

The president also blamed “demographics” for the inability of the Democratic Party to gain more power in Congress, saying Democrats “tend to congregate a little more densely” in cities such as New York and Chicago. He said it gives Republicans disproportional clout in Congress.

“So there are some structural reasons why, despite the fact that Republican ideas are largely rejected by the public, it’s still hard for us to break through,” Mr. Obama said.

He also said Democrats suffer from the “congenital disease” of not voting in midterm elections.

Overthrowing America: Obama’s MarxoFascist Junta

Fuhrer-Obama

Obama targets opposition using the IRS.  A corrupt Judiciary declares who can be on a ballot. The Senate moves to Repeal the First Amendment under the guise of election ‘fairness’.

I have said this ad infinitum over the last 5 years: America has seen her last free and “honest” nationally-impacted election.  We went Soviet.  Cook County corruption went national, and this people have no clue whatsoever what has happened to it.

America was overthrown from within – by a Marxist/Fascist juggernaut and nothing is stopping it.  The Ruling Class Republicans are complicit in this coup because they want a piece of the new power paradigm that makes government god, creates a permanent underclass of dependent serfs, and a caste of Nobles whom the underclass must serve without question.  Because after all, in the minds of those who now rule us, we little people cannot be trusted with liberty because we do not know what is good for us.  Government will now decide our fates .  What we think will correspond to what we receive and are allowed to have in conjunction with whom we must vote for, income inequality notwithstanding.

The fact everyone conveniently ignores is that our voice no longer matters when it opposes what the Ruling Class Junta demands.  The rule of law no longer matters, it can be ignored or changed or done away with when it interferes with what the Ruling Class Junta wants.

To wit:

• The IRS will continue to target, intimidate and punish Conservative groups in order to silence them and render any political influence irrelevant.  The paper trail goes all the way to the White House – but the Praetorian MarxoFasicst media has declared via press releases from the DNC that the effort to get to the bottom of the scandal is a ‘racist’ ‘witch hunt’.

• Judge orders 25 term congressman John Conyers to be put onthe ballot after he failed to obtain enough signatures for the primary election.  So when the law is not met, the Ruling Class will simply decree what is legal and what is not by using ideological judges when it cannot decree them by Executive Order.  It will do as it pleases to further the political party and the ideology rather than uphold the law.  The Ruling Class is now selecting candidates the people have to ‘choose’ from, and doing so by judicial or executive order.  This is pure Sovietism.

• 41 Democrat Senators signed onto a bill to repeal the first Amendment:  Senate Joint Resolution 19 – “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relating to contributions and expenditures intended to affect elections.  Under the guise of ‘fairness’ Harry Reid and the MarxoFascist Democrats and a few Republicans have decided that you will have no right to support or speak to those issues and candidates the Junta does not approve of.

Don’t look for any help from the Praetorian Media to report any of this.  As the head of CNN recently stated with intensity: “We will not be shamed into covering Benghazi”, nor indeed with it be shamed into covering ANYTHING detrimental to Obama and the MarxoFascist agenda.

The Emerging Junta 
The IRS’s illegal actions — and its efforts at cover-up — undermine the foundations of our government. 

 

I will confess to a little despair over the relatively mild reception that has greeted the evidence, now conclusive and irrefutable, that the Internal Revenue Service, under the direction of senior leaders affiliated with the Democratic party, was used as a political weapon from at least 2010 through the 2012 election. It may be that the American public simply does not care about the issue; it is always difficult, if not impossible, to predict what issues will seize the electorate’s attention, or to understand why after the fact. It may be that the public does not understand the issue, in which case a brief explanation of the known facts may be of some use.

 

When law-enforcement agencies and federal regulators with extraordinary coercive powers are subordinated to political interests rather than their official obligations — to the Party rather than to the law — then the law itself becomes meaningless, and the delicate constitutional order we have enjoyed for more than two centuries is reduced to a brutal might-makes-right proposition.

 

Here is what happened. In the run-up to the 2012 election, senior IRS executives including Lois Lerner, then the head of the IRS branch that oversees the activities of tax-exempt nonprofit groups, began singling out conservative-leaning organizations for extra attention, invasive investigations, and legal harassment. The IRS did not target groups that they believed might be violating the rules governing tax-exempt organizations; rather, as e-mails from the agency document, the IRS targeted these conservative groups categorically, regardless of whether there was any evidence that they were not in compliance with the relevant regulations. Simply having the words “tea party,” “patriot,” or “9/12” (a reference to one of Glenn Beck’s many channels of activism) in the name was enough. Also targeted were groups dedicated to issues such as taxes, spending, debt, and, perhaps most worrisome, those that were simply “critical of the how the country is being run.” Organizations also were targeted based on the identity of their donors. Their applications were delayed, their managements harassed, and the IRS demanded that they answer wildly inappropriate questions, such as the content of their prayers. When an internal review threatened to expose the fact that, in the words of the IRS’s inspector general, the agency was “using inappropriate criteria to identify organizations applying for tax-exempt status,” Ms. Lerner staged an event at a tax-law conference at which she used a planted questioner to preemptively disclose the issue on her own terms, and the agency began claiming that the tea-party targeting, while regrettable, was the work of a few misguided agents at a satellite office in Cincinnati. In fact, the direction came from Washington and was, in the words of the agency’s own e-mails, “coordinated with” a senior manager there, Rob Choi, director of rulings and agreements. This began at the behest of Democratic officeholders, including Senator Carl Levin of Michigan, who requested that the IRS disclose to him information about tea-party groups that it would have been illegal for the IRS to disclose. It subsequently emerged that IRS officials had intentionally misled members of Congress and investigators about the matter.

During this period, IRS operatives were, according to the Office of Special Counsel, openly campaigning for the reelection of Barack Obama on IRS time using IRS resources. A few were later disciplined for their actions, but the extent of the political activity of IRS agents remains unknown.

The IRS is not just a revenue agency — it is a law-enforcement agency, a police agency with far greater powers of investigation and coercion that any normal police force. Its actions in this matter are not only inappropriate — they are illegal. Using government resources for political ends is a serious crime, as is conspiring to mislead investigators about those crimes. But so far, other than holding Lois Lerner in contempt for refusing to comply with the demands of congressional investigators, almost nothing has happened. The characteristic feature of a police state is that those who are entrusted with the power to enforce the law are not themselves bound by it.

Context is again here important. The IRS scandal is not a standalone issue but comes at a time when the Democratic party is seeking to radically expand the power of the federal government to regulate political speech; we can safely assume that the same people who were using the IRS’s political-speech regulations for political ends will have precisely the same motives and precisely the same opportunity to use other political-speech regulations for precisely the same political ends: to benefit their allies and persecute their enemies. So committed are the Democrats to keeping their critics under the thumb of federal police powers that they have introduced an amendment in the Senate that would effectively repeal the free-speech provisions of the First Amendment, those having proved inconvenient to Democrats in Supreme Court rulings such as McCutcheon andCitizens United, the latter case involving a federal attempt to make it a crime to show a film critical of a political figure under unapproved circumstances.

The most important question that must be answered in this matter does not involve the misbehavior of IRS officials and Democratic officeholders, though those are important. Nor is it the question of free speech, vital and fundamental as that is. The question here is nothing less than the legitimacy of the United States government. When law-enforcement agencies and federal regulators with extraordinary coercive powers are subordinated to political interests rather than their official obligations — to the Party rather than to the law — then the law itself becomes meaningless, and the delicate constitutional order we have enjoyed for more than two centuries is reduced to a brutal might-makes-right proposition. Elected officials and public servants of both parties take an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and to faithfully discharge the duties of their office. That oath is now being tested. The IRS investigation is no mere partisan scandal, but a moral challenge for the men and women who compose the government of this country. Whether they are sufficient to meet that challenge is far from obvious, but the evidence so far is not encouraging.

Despotism In America – Foretold With Chilling Accuracy

Lord-King-Obama

America’s fate is sealed if the warnings of history and human nature tell us anything about where we have arrived as a nation and a people.

History repeats itself because people forget the lessons of history.   200 years ago, historian Alexis DeToqueville wrote an exhaustive examination of the American experiment in a 2-volume book entitled “Democracy In America“.

DeToqueville was curious how liberty and freedom were protected and enshrined in the aftermath of the War of Independence in the American Republic, but failed miserably in his native France to tyranny and terror shortly after our own Constitution was written.  How could Democracy work in one case, but fail and fall into terror and dictatorship in another?

His work is a seminal masterpiece that nails the reasons for success in the American Republic, and also nails the reasons for much of mankind’s history with despotic governments and tyranny.  While lauding the genius of America’s founding system, there are several parts of “Democracy In America” that read like prophetic warnings – and indeed they are.  The history of man is replete with examples of what always occurs to a self-governing people once they stray from their founding principles.  What DeToqueville notes that most in today’s America do not allow themselves to consider, is how fragile our liberty and Republic were.

For all our technology and advances in knowledge, America has lost it’s wisdom once held in high esteem and valued in our society.  We have ignored the warnings of scripture and our Founders themselves.  We have devolved into a post-modern, post-Constitutional mobocracy led by an oligarchy.  Something DeToqueville warned about with chilling accuracy when one considers where we now are with what he wrote.

Thanks to Mark Levin on his radio program last night for reminding those of us who have read this work, just how prophetic and prescient it is.  DeToqueville warns in Volume II Chapter VI about the kind of despotism a nation like America had to fear, and Mark read this part of the chapter on air.  He followed with a question every American now should ask himself: is this where we have arrived?  Is Despotism now our fate?

Read this part of the chapter yourself and ask yourself that same question.

A warning witness was given to us IN ADVANCE of where this civil society would go if we were not diligent to safeguard it from man’s nature to rule and dominate others.

Democracy in America

Chapter VI: What Sort of Despotism Democratic Nations Have to Fear 

Page 770-772

I seek to trace the novel features under which despotism may appear in the world. The first thing that strikes the observation is an innumerable multitude of men all equal and alike, incessantly endeavoring to procure the petty and paltry pleasures with which they glut their lives. Each of them, living apart, is as a stranger to the fate of all the rest – his children and his private friends constitute to him the whole of mankind; as for the rest of his fellow-citizens, he is close to them, but he sees them not – he touches them, but he feels them not; he exists but in himself and for himself alone; and if his kindred still remain to him, he may be said at any rate to have lost his country. Above this race of men stands an immense and tutelary power, which takes upon itself alone to secure their gratifications, and to watch over their fate. That power is absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild.

This reads like a history of the last 20 to 40 years in America.  How detached from We The People are those politicians in Washington?  How above us do the Obama’s live on our tax dollars, eating Waygu beef and enjoying multiple million-dollar vacations while lecturing us to eat vegetables and sacrifice for the ‘greater good’?  Is the government not now become the arbiter of granting multitudes of ‘civil rights’ to satisfy every desire and demand both benign and obscene?  He goes on to describe how a people would succumb and surrender to such a meddlesome tyranny:

It would be like the authority of a parent, if, like that authority, its object was to prepare men for manhood; but it seeks on the contrary to keep them in perpetual childhood: it is well content that the people should rejoice, provided they think of nothing but rejoicing. For their happiness such a government willingly labors, but it chooses to be the sole agent and the only arbiter of that happiness: it provides for their security, foresees and supplies their necessities, facilitates their pleasures, manages their principal concerns, directs their industry, regulates the descent of property, and subdivides their inheritances – what remains, but to spare them all the care of thinking and all the trouble of living?

Thus it every day renders the exercise of the free agency of man less useful and less frequent; it circumscribes the will within a narrower range, and gradually robs a man of all the uses of himself. The principle of equality has prepared men for these things: it has predisposed men to endure them, and oftentimes to look on them as benefits.

What is the main push and point from the MarxoFascist Left in America?

Equality.  Making everyone equal except themselves.  Forcing all into the lowest common denominator by force of law and regulation.  ObamaCare is one of the greatest mechanisms for tyranny in our time – yet this people not only are surrendering to it and enduring it, but are accepting the political lecturing that such tyranny is a ‘benefit’.

After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp, and fashioned them at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. 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 be nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.

Is this not what we in America have become?  A flock of timid and industrious animals that are herded by the government because it is seen as a god and shepherd?  The government then limiting and punishing individuals and enterprises to the point we all feel like we are in chains?

Then DeToqueville lays out what almost seems like a blueprint that America followed to get us to this point of our devolution into a subservience to despotism and slavery to the state.

I have always thought that servitude of the regular, quiet, and gentle kind which I have just described, might be combined more easily than is commonly believed with some of the outward forms of freedom; and that it might even establish itself under the wing of the sovereignty of the people. Our contemporaries are constantly excited by two conflicting passions; they want to be led, and they wish to remain free: as they cannot destroy either one or the other of these contrary propensities, they strive to satisfy them both at once. They devise a sole, tutelary, and all-powerful form of government, but elected by the people. They combine the principle of centralization and that of popular sovereignty; this gives them a respite; they console themselves for being in tutelage by the reflection that they have chosen their own guardians. Every man allows himself to be put in leading- strings, because he sees that it is not a person or a class of persons, but the people at large that holds the end of his chain. By this system the people shake off their state of dependence just long enough to select their master, and then relapse into it again. A great many persons at the present day are quite contented with this sort of compromise between administrative despotism and the sovereignty of the people; and they think they have done enough for the protection of individual freedom when they have surrendered it to the power of the nation at large.

And that my countrymen, could be engraved on the epitaph of our nation as the reason we succumbed.
