The Militia: A Constitutional Defense Force

Originally posted on December 10, 2009

(Author’s Note. I am reposting this article because there is still an urgent need to start organizing militias in your communities. First you have to climb over the fear of the government-defined ‘militia’, and understand it is a Constitutional Defense Force that American communities need now.)

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says:

A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

(Artwork by Randy Steele)

This Amendment in effect requires the States to have in place a ‘well-regulated militia’ to be ready to protect the citizenry and the State as called upon by the Governor or as deemed advisable locally to protect the community.  And every state is out of compliance with this requirement.

In addition, the federal and state governments have passed legislation that directly infringes upon the right of the citizens to bear arms.  With these laws, only the criminals have guns and the people are unable to defend themselves.

Yet remember who organized in defense of the Colonies against the British?  The committees of safety, the Sons of Liberty: the Militia. All able-bodied citizens.

As it turns out, the Militia has been bad-mouthed by many politicians, the media, and the government for a very long time.  The Militia is a convenient scapegoat as well, and the people have learned to fear the Militia as ‘right wing extremists’.


The delegates of the Continental Congress 2009 undertook an extensive examination of the abuse of the Second Amendment…and one of the first tasks was to define and help educate the people on the definition of a Militia:

The term Militia, inherently separate from the state National Guard, means “Constitutional Defense Force”, comprising all citizenry capable of bearing arms and under proper authority, in defense of themselves and each of the Several States

The Militia is under the authority of the Governor, but it is truly a grass-roots, local defense force that can defend communities, assist local police, emergency workers, the sheriff, or state police in any emergency.  Training and organization is essential and can be assisted by your local sheriff.

Think about where we are now.  Everyone is holding their breath waiting for the initiation of martial law, or some other type of police presence.  The main reason it hasn’t happened already is that we have the Second Amendment, and in the last year many citizens have become armed.  YOU can act on this now.

Continental Congress 2009 Remedial Instructions

The Congress of the United States

WHEREAS, the Second Amendment to the Constitution mandates, “In order to provide for the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” and

WHEREAS, a multitude of federal statutes constitute de facto infringement;

THEREFORE, We, the Delegates of Continental Congress 2009, as Free People of America, do hereby Instruct the Congress of the United States as follows:

  1. Repeal all federal statutes regulating the ownership, use and transfer of firearms and ammunition;
  2. Repeal any federal statutes which provide for the taxation or registration of firearms and ammunition; (Schwarzenegger just signed an ammunition registration law)
  3. Abolish the Department of Homeland Security and thereby return the responsibility for domestic security to the Militias of the Several States; the term militia, inherently separate from the State National Guard, means “Constitutional Defense Force,” comprising all loyal citizenry capable of bearing arms, well‐trained and under proper authority, in defense of themselves and each of the several States;
  4. Make statutes providing for organizing, arming and disciplining the Militia and for governing such part of them as may be called to serve the United States and, reserve to the states all other powers relating to the Militia;
  5. Encourage and support, and cease and desist from infringing upon, the duty of the People to revitalize the “well‐regulated Militia of each of the Several States”.

The Several States

  1. Repeal all state statutes regulating the ownership, use and transfer of firearms and  ammunition.
  2. Repeal any state statutes which provide for the registration of firearms and ammunition.
  3. By statute, establish an Advisory Commission On Revitalization of the Militia of their State,in the exercise of their powers over the Militia*, as reserved to the several states by the Second and Tenth Amendments as well as other provisions of the Constitution of the United States….

Recommended Civil Actions by the People

WHEREAS, the Second Amendment mandates that the Right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and
WHEREAS, Natural Law affirms the Right to defense of one’s Life and Property, and
WHEREAS, Citizens are reminded that the U. S. Constitution is the Supreme Law of the land, and that state laws repugnant to the Second Amendment are null and void, including open carry laws;
NOW THEREFORE, We, the Continental Congress 2009, declare that a proper method to counter federal usurpation of said Rights is to encourage the People of each of the Several States to study and exercise their Right to keep and bear arms, and to engage in the following civic actions:

  1. Meet with your County Sheriff and ask for assistance and guidance in establishing a Constitutional Militia.
  2. Converse, build coalitions, and develop networks of communication with like‐minded organizations concerning the importance of Constitutional Militias, preparedness, and the protection of our Right to keep and bear arms;
  3. Lobby State Legislatures to introduce and/or pass a version of what is commonly referred to as the “Firearms Freedom Act”;
  4. Utilize existing “Second Amendment Scorecards” on each of their representatives.

This is just a taste of more of the Articles of Freedom to come!

    I think your blog has it’s own flavor drkate. It has a great blog roll and intelligent posts instead of the steady diet of snark. It has a unique purpose and looks fine to me. It’s clean and smooth and is user friendly. All the buttons work and some great features exist that’s unique like the calendar and the top clicks and much more. I can easily find the radio url and it’s oh so neat of a blog. One would think you studied to be a webmaster because you follow all the rules. You have certainly done a great job of building it as you go along. Plus you average 25,000 hits per month.

    Dr. Kate, I was just going to send you an email about this but Quaantum Leap said it so well that I don’t feel the need to now. Just be assured that my sentiments are exactly the same of his. Thank you Quaantum. And thank you for the Oath Keepers video. Every time I watch it I get all welled up on the verge of crying. By the way, are you an Oath Keeper?

  3. 3 Rick December 10, 2009 at 9:29 am

    I just finished updating my blog a few minutes ago, then I run across this article. Had I seen it first, I might have quoted from it. I suggested that the states which had passed Tenth Amendment Resolutions develop their own militias.

    Good article. Worth bookmarking.

  4. 8 Katie December 10, 2009 at 10:44 am

    I love the way you’ve created this blog! It’s an easy place to learn some hard lessons.

    Tonight, hosts Red Beckman and Terry Dodd will be joined by the President of CC2009, Michael Badnarik. In addition to discussing the Continental Congress and the Articles of Freedom with Michael, Red & Terry will talk about the difference between True Patriots and a False Patriots. Phone lines will be open at the end of the first half hour for questions and comments. Join us on the stream, in the chat room or on the phone. Show time is 9 pm Eastern or 7 pm Mountain, December 10, 2009. Here’s the link:

    Call in number is 347-838-9176 If you are not near a computer, you may call in and just listen or hit 1 to ask a question.

    Michael Badnarik was recently elected as the President of the Continental Congress 2009 which convened in St. Charles, Illinois from November 11th through November 22nd. Tonight, Michael will be discussing the Continental Congress, what was accomplished and the soon to be released Articles of Freedom.
    At the urging of friends, as well as students of his popular “Introduction to the Constitution” class, in February 2003 Michael decided to run for President. To secure the Libertarian Party nomination, he traveled over 25,000 miles campaigning across the U.S. in the 15 months leading up to the Party’s National Convention in Atlanta. Although Michael was clearly the underdog, he won the nomination after three close ballots.
    Michael continued his underdog status in the national campaign. Despite appearing on the ballot in 48 states, more than Ralph Nader, as his candidacy was blacked out by the mainstream media. Frustrated by the bipartisan control of the electoral process, he tried to serve process papers on Commission on Presidential Debates officials in a lawsuit protesting the exclusion of significant third party candidates from the debates. Badnarik and David Cobb, the Green Party nominee, were arrested and handcuffed attempting to peacefully cross the police line surrounding the St. Louis debate. Despite this unprecedented challenge to the legitimacy of the debates, the media virtually censored this story.
    While on the campaign trail, Michael found time to write a book about the Constitution entitled Good To Be King The Foundations of Freedom. U.S. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), known for his integrity and independent views, wrote the forward. Good To Be King is only available in hardcover, and for the time being, only on this website.
    Badnarik first began studying the Constitution in 1983, while managing the Braidwood Nuclear Simulator project. In his next assignment, he earned a Secret Security clearance at the Northrop facility charged with developing the Stealth Bomber. His next challenge was training hundreds of employees to use state-of-the-art computer systems at PG&Es Diablo Canyon nuclear plant. His natural talent for speaking and teaching led him to develop his Constitution class.

    This site is now among my favorite pro-constitution blogs. I have it bookmarked.

    Thanks for your support of the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment.

    The states need to go back and develop regulated militias as both the North and South did before the War Between the States. I do not call the war, “civil war,” as the South did not want to take over the United States. They only wanted to become free of a strong central government.

    Unfortunately, the North used slavery as an excuse to prevent them from seceding, which they had a right to do.

      Thank you Rick, and agree with your sentiment regarding Lincoln forcing the voluntary union. then we get to the 14th amendment–passed at the point of a gun–which underlies the root of many problems today.

    😥 It is so hard to keep up with what these boys are doing. All of this depends on appropriations, which for now they can count on.

    I can only assume they are rushing because they know they are near their end…they are running out of time…we must hang on to make sure 2010 elections happen

    Its hard to stay up for sure. And then these measly little posts I can put up don’t seem to make a dent!

  14. 22 Rick January 13, 2010 at 8:26 am

    I would not put it past the current crop of senators and congressional representatives to refuse to leave congress if they lose. This would cause an uprising, and create a constitutional crisis which might give the president an excuse to declare martial war. This administration is so corrupt, I would not put anything past them.

  15. 23 d2i January 13, 2010 at 9:21 am

    Appreciate your re posting this article. Who knew? Virginia has a House Committee titled, “Militia, Police AND Public Safety”. I need to do some digging on the Virginia Militia. Knowing my fellow Virginian’s, I’ll bet we have a handful of them around the state. I’ll report back.

    Also, have referred a couple of friends to your site, dk. Hopefully they’ll visit soon and post from time to time.

  16. 24 d2i January 13, 2010 at 11:32 am

    Here we go –

    Katie – a couple of days ago you posted a YT interview regarding Geithner and the Bloomberg article. My answer to your question is Yes. This is where it will begin. The tentacles spread much further however, but you nailed it w/the interview. Thanks for sharing it and watch the storyline as it begins to unfold b/c it’s unfolding rapidly.

    Btw, Post and Mail has a post up stating 0’s name at birth was Steve Dunham. Fascinating read.

    And something tells me Sarah is going to play good cop to Beck’s bad cop. Just a hunch.

    • 25 Katie January 13, 2010 at 2:52 pm

      d2i – There is NOT enough duct tape in the world to keep my head from exploding!

      I really don’t have a full grasp of this, but I’m sure this ties in as well.

      The Securities and Exchange Commission exists to enforce trading laws and ensure as much transparency as possible on Wall Street. The bailout of AIG made American taxpayers the majority stockholder in the insurance giant, with hundreds of billions of dollars flowing from Treasury to AIG, and then to … whom? Thanks to a strange decision by the SEC, we won’t know the details for another eight years:

    • 26 Quantum Leap January 13, 2010 at 11:36 pm

      Isn’t that the timeline that Bag of chip’s trial begins and the canary begins to sing? As for his name being Steve Dunham, I don’t doubt it. Steve McQueen was popular those days and everyone was named Steve then. We do not know the half of it. The lies and cover-up are unfathomable and stunning. I feel nauseaous over all of it, there is so much oozing out of his rotten soul. I really don’t like it when Sarah hooks up with the already established characters like Beck and Oh Reilyyyyyeee (dinner is ready). It changes her. She’s much stronger on her own. We’ll see. ‘Doubt she’ll play good cop. She’s too snarky.
      In case you missed it.

  17. 28 Quantum Leap January 13, 2010 at 11:45 pm

    Yes drkate. Has anyone seen the cool PIC of “where’s the birth certificate” billboard flying high in front of ‘The Mirage’ on the Vegas strip today? Best yet and it’s all lit up and WOW.
    Whoops here’s Beck and Palin part 1.

    • 29 terminu January 14, 2010 at 3:47 am

      Aw too bad you lost YOUR soul Beck you traitor!
      Ever since he employed Alinsky mocking over Obama being born a British citizen and thus not a natural born citizen, he can go screw off.

  18. 30 ladysforest January 14, 2010 at 9:01 am

    Terminu-I sooo agree with you about Beck. I change the channel now when he’s on.

    Drkate, yesterday you posted:

    “Its hard to stay up for sure. And then these measly little posts I can put up don’t seem to make a dent!”

    You make a very noticeable difference in that you give a place to gather and discuss national concerns in an intelligent informative way.

    Can any of us imagine the situation we would all be in if the internet was not available as a tool for us during this time in US history!

    I have a blog also. I get a very tiny amount of visitors. I do not get bummed by that, or in knowing it may likely make no difference to anyone out there…..because I am trying. That is the thing, to keep at it no matter the outcome. Every effort is so valuable, and Drkate, all of your readers will tell you that your work does indeed make a dent! Thank you for all you do.

  19. 31 swh January 14, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    Kate… heard your program last night via the archived audio file and want to commend you for your perspective and guts. There was a lot of trilling or voice distortion of some kind tho, on my end, which makes it less than grade A for audio. Sadly, because everything else said was spot on… which I suspect makes it hard for new listeners especially. I’m not complaining… just reporting back fyi… so, if there’s any way Blogtalk could be persuaded to address the issue with an attempt to remedy I’d strongly encourage it. Keep up the good work. People are hungry to hear those kinds of simple, clear assesments and descriptions of the issues. swh

    Isn’t the well-regulated militia the National Guard?

    • 33 drkate January 16, 2010 at 10:37 am

      No Stacey, that is actually a common misunderstanding. The National Guard are subject to the orders of the President and the Governor.

      Militias are the state’s defense force…they can be called up by the governor in case of an emergency, but the militia is made up of the people, not regular soldiers.
