For those who praise and support the U.S. Constitution and its Framers’ original intent: The Revolution has passed. You missed it. The Constitution is not hanging by a thread. It is severed. It is dead.
It died with Justice Antonin Scalia, much to the delight of those who danced on his grave.
It was a great document. It began with a declaration. “We hold these truths to be self-evident…” And “a long train of abuses and usurpations.”
It started with an “article” Article I. Limited government. Among its list of “hands off” is NO FEDERAL LAND outside of the 10 mile square area that defined Washington DC. Only allowed were forts, arsenals, magazines and other such buildings for defense purposes. CHECK.
It identified acceptable means of securing revenue. Tariffs. Imposts. Duties. Its authors abhorred taxation of income and property. CHECK.
It continued with Article II. Bicameral Government. Dividing the interests that elect the executive, senate and house so that there were checks and balances. The original electoral college. (What’s that???) CHECK.
Then followed Article III. How Congress can restrict jurisdiction of the Courts. Another check and balance. CHECK.
And may I mention Article IV? States were once guaranteed a republican form of government, protecting them from enemies foreign and domestic. (But YOU thought it was a DEMOCRACY!) CHECK.
Then along came the Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment to protect the First. The First is gone. (You missed that one? Look at 2013-2014 and the domino effect that destroyed individual religious liberty.)
Henderson Detention Facility Visit
Yesterday, I entered the Henderson Detention Facility in Nevada and with my media credential requested to see Cliven and Davey Bundy and radio talk show host Pete Santilli, all being held without bail. I was told they were “contract” inmates, under the U.S. Marshall. Although they were kind and helpful, the Public Information Officer told me that she would be happy to connect me with that federal agency, but that it is highly unlikely that I would get any interview. So much for my credential which expressly states that I have a First Amendment right – in ALL circumstances – to access an interview, if the person accepts.
I requested a personal conversation instead and received a phone call from the jail later that evening from Pete. The reception along I-15 was not good, and he said he would call me tomorrow. He has no idea when he will call, nor do I. They don’t tell him in advance when he will be allowed to call. So I am at best “on call” for my – and his – First Amendment right. Guilty until proven innocent?
The Second Amendment is on its way out. Obama’s many staged mass murders and WACO-like FBI raids Academy Award-winning productions in the fiction category, as well as attacks on conservative 501 c 4 groups, are evidence of his unconstitutional rampage.
My friend from the USSR, now an American citizen, has warned that the hallmark of Communism was a massive, unelected bureaucracy that got its hands into everyone’s personal lives through a centralized school system that combined public and private interests. She says “The only thing that makes the US different, is the First and Second Amendments. If those ever go – and if Americans ever let the government take their guns, you will be the USSR.” CHECK.
The 9th and 10th are ignored by Congress and the States have not the will nor the courage to tell Washington to take that “flying leap.” They are too drunk on the wine of federal subsidy.
Then came the systematic perversion of the framers’ original intent.
The 12th Amendment annihilated the original Electoral College that kept the INTERESTS in check, instead making it a kangaroo Electoral College where party-elected representatives show up to sign the certification of the election, even though they know it was invalid due to massive voter fraud. (Next comes the national popular vote to ensure a democracy replaces the republic.) CHECK.
The 16th Amendment offended the very intent of the framers by handing to Congress its unlimited paycheck – your income. They would roll over in their graves as socialist democracy continued to invade the space. CHECK.
The 17th Amendment next mutilated the republic and replaced it with democracy by turning over the original limited interests to the masses. Score another brownie point for socialism. CHECK.
Now, under the “Patriot Act” and the massive Department of Homeland Security, our elected officials obsessed with defeating a demon they created out of their own stupidity (or was it deliberate?) to make the nation safe at the expense of Liberty, those very guns have turned on the people, as we predicted. One harmless but powerful patriot leader standing up for the U.S. Constitution shot and killed in an ambush in Oregon. Twenty-seven brave patriots standing together with him for this U.S. Constitution, and may I emphasize, on SOLID constitutional ground, are now in JAIL or in PRISON.
Who is standing up for them? Anyone in the U.S. Senate? Congress? Nope. Not ONE. Not even Msr. Constitution themselves – Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. Not anyone in Congress that has received personal appeals – which I delivered – letters from the incarcerated, who have been suffering through the barbaric practice, according to an opinion rendered by Justice Anthony Kennedy in 2015.
They care only about their re-election and their self interest. Sounds harsh, I know. But I DO KNOW. I have personally delivered a letter from Davey Bundy to his elected officials – Congressman Chris Stewart and Senator Mike Lee. Two man who stepped forward waving their pocket Constitutions, with Glenn Beck endorsements (you can fool me once…but TWICE?)
No doubt Mike was taught the Constitution by his father who helped Dallin Oaks develop the BYU Law School (accredited by the ABA, that executes the ACLU’s curriculum). It’s not the Constitution I know. Garrett Smith, one of my talk show hosts on The Liberty Lineup confirmed that in his law school, even in the Con Law course, THEY NEVER ONCE READ THE CONSTITUTION. It was all about Case law. Stare decisis.
So, like great-great grandma’s favorite recipe, it has been changed up with each new generation until it just doesn’t taste like her original any more.
Mike Lee may be standing on some issues more strongly that others in the past, but that, my friends is all relative to how dramatically the Constitution has been neglected in that past. If he is so very “constitutional,” why then did he abandon the last vestige of an election process that even remotely resembles the framers’ intent when he led out amongst the Utah elected officials to go with an unconstitutional democratic process which only further damaged the republican form of government? Why did he command an “Official Cruz slate” which the overwhelming majority of new delegates voted straight up and down, putting KNOWN ESTABLISHMENT on that slate?
While good men sit in jail with their First, Second, Fourth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Amendment Constitutional rights grossly violated, their wives and children suffering unable to sleep at night, how can THESE BARBARIANS themselves sleep at night?
Even the think tanks that profess to be “constitutional” or supporting the Constitution have abandoned this document. Now Sutherland Institute in Utah has selected a new executive director – Boyd Matheson, who came from the Mike Lee team and who I have texted numerous times about helping us hold these Courts and their inhumane practices accountable. NO RESPONSE.
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. It’s not only Mike Lee and Chris Stewart that stand by professing not to be able to do anything.
And so, farewell, U.S. Constitution. May you rest in peace. My condolences to all the statesmen that once respected it. It is dead. Its only remaining defenders give only lip service, which is as good as silence.
Yes, are you surprised the revolution has passed? If so, you have not been watching or participating. Only those who are on the front lines notice it, because THEY are the ones getting burned when they stand up for it. They are the ones censured when they dare to say, “But it reads HERE in the Constitution….” And they either get mocked, silenced or they land in jail.
Meanwhile, the rest of America wakes up, goes to work, drops their children off to school where they pledge allegiance to democracy and have no clue about the history of the dead republic and its once respected rule of law. They all come home and turn on The Voice or some other “reality” show, or watch the Mind Control Media news that blacks out what’s really happening at a wildlife refuge, and they know either what they hear or …nothing at all.
It reminds me of the night the Nazis crossed the Austrian border. Folks were still attending the opera that night. They had NO clue. The Mind Control Media of the day didn’t want THEM to know either.
And so history repeats and those who don’t know history are condemned to repeat it. Our Liberty will not be secured in Washington DC. Our elected officials have let us down on both sides of the aisle. They have proven they will not fix it. Over and over. When a Jason Chaffetz, a Mia Love, a Rob Bishop or a Chris Stewart from supposedly “conservative” Utah ALL vote for a multi-trillion omnibus bill that funds ObamaCare, you know you are in big trouble. (Kudos to Mike Lee on THAT one.)
We have no majority of statesmen who can be trusted to resuscitate this document in any sort of convention. Don’t go there. They will ensure it will be further perverted for their gains and they will continue to disregard any rule of law as they now do.
We have allowed evil and self-interested men and women get the power. We have wanted a “king.” We have implemented what they did not want – a democracy – because they knew that democracies do not live long and they have volatile endings. This will not have a good ending. The founders knew that. As the momentum continues down this destructive path and leads to the inevitable insurrection, it is up to you and me.
We the People are the only hope for Liberty to once again rise. We cannot allow mob rule, as democracy always becomes. Watch this, if you haven’t already seen it.
I asked the guards at the Henderson Detention Facility to treat the inmates humanely, that Justice Kennedy had issued an opinion on solitary confinement. I let them know I had asked Thara Finicum Tenney to create a video about it and I directed him to view it.
He said, “Yes, our phones have been exploding.” When I emphasized, “These are good men,” he sincerely replied, “No doubt they are,” and explained that because it is such a high-profile case, that if the guards make one mistake, they will lose their jobs.
Good. The People are exercising their power and THAT is working. That is the ONLY thing that works.
As the U.S. Constitution has gone down in ashes, let us rise up as a Phoenix and resurrect the principles upon which this nation was once founded. We will need to piece them back together.
Do you know what they were? What will you do when democracy comes crashing down on this collision course accelerates?
Let’s start with our right to bear arms, a fundamental right we are fast losing. Let’s start in our Counties, with our Sheriffs. Let’s gather around the constitutional sheriffs, and find out which ones must be replaced. Congress cannot provide safety, but We the People can and WILL.
Join with us to hear Larry Pratt of Gunowners of America Friday, May 6, 2016, 7 PM. Two locations – Orem and Salt Lake City. Find out what we can and must do together. Liberty can, will, and MUST prevail. #LibertyRising #LibertyLineup
