Nothing is going to happen in this country until we the people realize that it is we who have failed the Constitution; the Constitution has not failed us. Our chances of restoring our Republic are very slim without that realization. ~Red Beckman, February 2012
Our Founders created a government that was based upon several basic principles, among them morality, honesty, integrity, truth and justice. We cannot have a just government without a moral government. Our Constitution was created for a moral people…when was the last time, if ever, that you saw a politician acting morally and in the best interests of the people? Well, we elected them.
The recent discussion and history of Obama’s new Executive Order on the peacetime declaration of martial law is an illustrative example of how long we have been asleep at the wheel. As it turns out, the basic elements of this executive order began in the administration of John F. Kennedy, and every President since then has reauthorized it or added to it. Now with a clear and present danger in our White House, it takes on far more menacing meaning–as we know Obama will use it if he feels his election chances are threatened.
But realistically, we could also go back to Executive Order 1, signed by Abraham Lincoln when there arguably was no Congress–the South had walked out–declaring a permanent state of emergency which has existed since that time. Hence the gold fringe on the U.S. flag in our courthouses and many federal buildings. Each president that has come along has failed to rescind this or subsequent Executive Orders, which have gradually taken over as the means of governance–by executive fiat.
This post, which has been long in coming, delves into the aspect of our Constitution which requires the consent of the governed, and poses some reasons why and examples of our relinquishment of our responsibility to give or deny consent to the various actions of the government we created. Our failure to live up to our responsibilities has allowed untold suffering and the death of millions–of our own citizens and of the world–at the hands of unscrupulous men and women. Of course these unscrupulous people with monied roots in the ‘families’ and secret societies that have caused trouble for the world wasted no time in taking over key institutions–our education system, government, the courts, the churches, the media, entertainment, the sciences, and now fully the means of production–agriculture, food, medicine, water, and industry.
Have we awakened in time? Do we have the numbers? And whether we do or not, do we have a responsibility to right our Country and bring back Constitutional governance? We’ve never not had that responsibility!
Neither time nor the severity of the moment allows for us to sit and watch and pretend to live above it all. Not anymore. The determination of those who control this administration, and the willingness of this president to assist in their desired outcome has finally awoken us. The defeat of Barack Obama is the most important thing I can do with the time I have left. I do not say that as a boast. I do not say that to somehow elevate my own sense of importance. I say that as a man blessed to have lived in this country for many decades and in that time, the prosperity that time has given to me is worthy of many lifetimes. What I owe to this country demands I do what I can to save it. ~Wall Street Insider
A First Casualty: Our THREE Votes
We designed the system so that we would be the true masters of government, not the other way around. A dangerous servant our government has now become as it encroaches on our lives in every possible manner, replacing individual liberty with collectivism, and enacting the subversion of our individual rights through coercion. Enshrined in our Constitution, and in particular, the Bill of Rights is the principle that consent of the governed is required for the government to take any action. We have three votes, not just one as the powers would have us believe. Our election, grand jury, and petite jury votes.
As shown in the diagram below, any time the government wants to propose a rule that impacts individuals, it has to seek consent of the governed. If it wants to prosecute someone for violating one of those rules, it must bring that rule and its proposed action before a jury and a grand jury. There we get to decide if it is a valid law in the first instance, and if a person has violated that rule. Corrupt judges will suggest to a jury that they are not to decide the law, only the facts of the case. That didn’t work out for Supreme Court Justice Samuel Chase, now did it, where he was impeached (but not convicted) for instructing a jury that they couldn’t decide on the law itself.
This failure to understand our power has had serious consequences. All you need to do is look at the prosecution of individuals under the law that never was–the unconstitutional sixteenth amendment–and the congressionally created Internal Revenu
e Service (IRS) used to ‘enforce’ an unconstitutional law.
The people who have been prosecuted under this unconstitutional law have been sent to jail by juries–not by government, by the people on the juries who either failed to recognize they have a right to judge the law itself or bought the judge’s illegal directions that they were only to judge the facts of the trial. Using the diagram above, if IRS wants to prosecute you, they must take this to a jury, where you decide whether the law is valid and whether the individual should be prosecuted. And under the Seventh Amendment, once that jury decides you are not guilty of violating an unconstitutional law, no court of the U.S. can overrule the jury’s decision, nor can any federal judge:
In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.
The true intention of the Constitution–to recognize our individual sovereignty, is no where more evident than in the Seventh Amendment. But our sovereignty and individual rights are totally ignored by the judicial system.
A grand jury should be utilized when dealing with the implementation of any agency-created law against any individual…you have a right to ask for a jury trial at all times and should never subject yourself to the whims of an individual judge. Important places to begin to use jury trials include actions taken by federal fish agencies under the Endangered Species Act, where fines for the ‘take’ of fish, for example, can range from $25,000 to over $75,000 per fish. When the government creates the problem, such as in the Klamath Basin, federal agents should not be allowed to trespass on individual property, ‘find’ a dead fish, and prosecute or jail an individual.
We the people deal with common law; the judges and attorneys deal with case law, administrative procedures, contract law, and equity…we must bring back common law courts to every jurisdiction in our country. It is time to flood the system with jury trial actions.
- The Arizona ballot challenge suit in Pima County requested a jury trial and is the only eligibility case to my knowledge that would be heard before a jury. Once the information on Obama’s failure to qualify as a natural born citizen reaches the jury, any jury would decide he cannot be on the ballot. Can a federal court overturn that decision? I would argue no, not under the Seventh Amendment. DNC Chair Wasserman-Schultz will be sued for fraud, and that should be heard by a jury…its the only way to ensure that the democrats can’t bribe or threaten a judge to rule in their favor.
- What about Oklahoma’s anti-sharia statute? How can a single federal judge overturn the will of the people? Actions should be taken to bring that decision back to the local level and tried by a jury of Oklahomans. The United States government and its agents try to block our access to juries at every turn.
- What about excessive EPA regulation, or the regulation of your garden or of a farmer’s market? Why are we sending individuals to jail for growing and selling tomatoes? Or producing and selling raw milk? What ‘law’ permits this, and what is the constitutional authority?
- What about the molesting of children by the Transportation Security Agency?
By allowing the jury system to fall, and by neglecting our responsibilities as citizens, we ourselves destroy our cultural heritage. We have given our consent to government to do what it wants. It is time to get informed, get ready, use a jury whenever you can, and find out how to get on a grand jury.
A Major Cause of Distress: We have Abandoned the Almighty
The enemies of America are now gathering. 2008 was the calling. We have abandoned the Almighty. My greatest fear is He may now have abandoned us. In our foolish neglect of the great gift of freedom that is the United States, perhaps that is exactly what is deserved. And yet, I refuse to simply accept that.~ Wall Street Insider
The relentless march of socialism, anti-Americanism, and communism has been and is at its core a march against God…as it has been since the gracing of this world with his only begotten son, Yeshua, Jesus. Yes we can talk about the ‘social scientists‘, and Darwin; the progressives, Marx, and Stalin; the left, radical islam, and the muslim brotherhood, even the Jesuits, and chronicle their precise killing and ideological influences. What they all have in common is the absence of God; they are man-oriented; they are all satanic. By turning off our ears, shutting our eyes, glorifying our wealth or graven images, and by fearing government more than our Creator-God, we have lost the ability of discernment.
And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul Genesis 2: 7
To Whom, then, will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high,and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power, not one faileth Isaiah 40: 25-26
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God (2 Thess. 2: 3,4)
And with all the deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2 Thess. 2: 10-12)
And the moment of our distress has then a spiritual root; a cause, where we have lost our way and failed to discern our responsibilities to God, our Country and ourselves; being content with distractions including our arguments over ‘concepts’, the right versus left, the liberal versus conservative. And our delusion has caused us to believe in the false promise of security in exchange for our God-given, unalienable rights and our responsibility to safe-guard them; to believe in simple men who have no interest but their own, in a party or team rather than in the truth.
Can you imagine that the fate of our country is in the hands of one man, nine ‘justices’, and a handful of proud, conceited, misguided, and ungodly politicians…when we had it within our hands to withhold our consent for these atrocities committed in our name? The Wall Street Insider grasps this possible ending as he struggles with his own role in enabling ‘obamacare’ to bring our Country to the brink of destruction:
May God grant these nine people the wisdom to remove the oppression contained within that foul document so appropriately called “Obamacare”. Never should its manifestation been allowed. Never should I and others have even remotely considered it may be of benefit to Americans struggling without health care coverage. A Trojan Horse of false idealism and we opened the gates to it and now a battle for the soul of America is underway. It is shameful how little attention I paid to it then. Such a stupid and pretentious man I was. Perhaps I still am.
It is long past time to withdraw our consent, for any of this business. No to incumbents and to ‘business as usual’. No to unconstitutional laws. No to the ‘justices’ who deliver no justice. No to the media which lies. No to the federal reserve and the complicit congress. NO to a usurper who has taken what is not his. No to the anti-Americans who would destroy us.* They forevermore must now earn our consent.
