The Constitution for the United States set limits on the federal government, which we the people created to safeguard our liberty interests and to provide for the nation’s defense. The latest federal land grab in Nevada is just the tip of the iceberg and was most likely a test to see how Americans would respond to such blatant actions on the part of a federal agency—backed up by Blackwater Mercenaries, Homeland Security, and federal land agency personnel armed with weapons purchased by our tax dollars.
But wait. We’ve already had more than 100 years of tax fraud, and an illegal debt that has been racked up by the equally illegal federal reserve, created illegally through a non-ratified amendment to the Constitution. And upheld by every Congress since that time–no on principle but because they benefit financially. As a result of this system, politicians have amassed massive amounts of debt–without our permission but certainly without our scrutiny. This is illegal debt, not ours, but the widely discredited government of the United States–including “both sides of the (same) isle” will use taxation and rural land grabs to satisfy the debt.
When you borrow money from a bank, and can’t pay the loan off, you give up your assets. The government considers Indian reservations, natural resources on so called “public land”, national parks, forests and monuments, to be “its assets” —available to collateralize the debt. The target: rural areas in the western United States.
The price of liberty is eternal vigilance
As discussed in this article, each state admitted to the Union of the united States of America entered under the doctrine of ‘equal footing’, and in each state’s enabling legislation “public lands” are to be returned to the States. A map of the western united States shows just how the government ‘honored’ its promises and each state’s enabling legislation—by keeping public lands instead. Billions of dollars are collected each year from these public lands and are derived from mineral leases, grazing leases, sale of water, oil and gas, and hydropower revenues.
Notice that the largest landowner is the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), whose agents and supporters at the Bundy Ranch claimed that the “constitution is on our side“.
With regard to the politician known as Harry Reid and the Clark County Commissioners, it appears that their personal and family financial interests were useful to the attempted siege of the Bundy Ranch. Under the guise of rural economic development, and providing economic assistance to Tribes, the (national debt has been collateralized on) lands of the Bundy Ranch have already been “sold” to a foreign firm for solar energy development.
Did the Constitution allow the Raid on the Bundy Ranch?
It may seem like an obvious answer “no” to most of us who read these pages. But for those who still disagree that the Constitution is the law of the land, the emphatic answer is NO. On the concept of jurisdiction alone, the federal government and especially the alphabet agencies does/do not have the authority inside any state on private lands for the management or theft of natural resources. If we understand that the so called “public lands” under federal management are to be returned to the state, it is even more striking. The Constitution itself can be used to defend rural America. It is worth revisiting the following video for further background on the very limited jurisdiction that the federal government has:
Constitutional Response to a Wayward Federal Government
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable. JFK
By way of stating what this blog considers the truth, the Constitution for the United States of America, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence were divinely inspired and are derived from God’s law, which is “natural law”. We have from God the gift of self-governance and the ability to enact His laws here on earth in our everyday being, interactions, and in our society. The correct pecking order for “law” is Gods Law, common law (our Constitution), and then human law. Human law is judged by juries in relation to God’s law and common law.
No government, agency, or individual can make up authority that was not given to it by the Constitution. The federal jurisdiction only extends to the federal zone—that is, the District of Columbia and other small areas. See jurisdiction video below and the link here.
The most powerful tools we have include the following:
Our votes as petit and grand jurors. Juries have the right to judge the law, not just the facts of the case. If the federal government wants to seize the Bundy Ranch, it can only do so with permission and through proper compensation. It cannot use any federal law, such as the endangered species act, as an excuse to seize property.
- BLM agents and agency heads should be brought to court and be subject to a trial by jury, or grand jury, which will judge whether their actions were lawful.
- Senator Harry Reid should be recalled and individual financial transactions scrutinized in a court of law by a jury
- Clark County Commissioners should be recalled or impeached for breaking their oath of office
- The Sheriff should be recalled and/or impeached for breaking his oath of office
Don’t be a rubber stamp people! The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, which means knowing your responsibilities as a juror. Because we have let this system go, and in part because our lawyers, judges, and government have ignored it, the government is now acting beyond its constitutional authority.
Tenth Amendment. It is time to use this tool to nullify bad law, to eliminate land and water grabs by the alphabet agencies. State legislatures should continue to nullify egregious laws and consider actions that restrict, inhibit, and condition federal agencies and their actions within states. Bad law can be nullified and/or tried in a court of law.
First and Second Amendments. These are our RIGHTS to petition the government and to protect our liberty.
American Responsibility. Remember, it is our duty as Americans to rise up against tyranny. The Declaration of Independence requires it and enshrines us with a revolutionary right; our obedience to God requires our resistance to tyranny
Taxation. Our revolution in 1776 began with a tax revolt—no taxation without representation! Today, its seems that our motto should be not only no taxation without representation, but no taxation without authority! There is massive action needed in this arena as it is still too easy for the government to pick off individuals. Do not be a rubber stamp on a jury, and do not let tyranny take over!
No, we don’t need a constitutional convention. We need to exercise the God-given rights we already have!
