Beware False Patriots

©2010 drkate

It is in the air.  We are now in the 2nd American Revolution, as the giant known as the American public has now awakened from its long slumber.  The constitutional crisis precipitated by placement of a usurper into the White House mushroomed into an awareness that our Country has been and is under attack from within,  and that this moment is pivotal for America.  And, it is not exactly ‘just like any other time’, and has its own set of very large risks if it is not addressed now, meaning our lifetimes.

Obama’s stupidity and arrogance in and audacity of forcing a radical left agenda down America’s throat within the first few months of taking office has backfired.  And he will not recover.  Americans do not approve of Obama by large margins, the latest Rasmussen approval index  is -13.  Sixty percent of Americans would like a new President now.

The Awakening-Seward Johnson-St. Louis, MO

And just in time, the people have arisen… and are mobilizing…and we know that the energy generated from this awareness is HUGE.

At the same time, dear Patriots, what politician can resist trying to co-op this energy?  What Alinsky-minded, left wing social moron can resist trying to infiltrate and disrupt, turning us against each other? What profit-motivated individual could resist leveraging liberty for financial gain?

These are the people who stand on the lawn in the picture above, just out of sight, waiting to shackle the American people before we even stand.

It is essential for the rebirth of liberty in America that this energy not be co-opted or destroyed from within by any political party, by those who consider only fortune or fame, or by those who simply want control over the energy for whatever reason. Yes, our movement is a microcosm of what our Nation faces: usurpation from within.

Some Definitions

  • Country v Government

In order to frame this discussion properly, a few definitions are in order, starting with the distinction between ‘country’ and ‘government‘.  It is important to note that countries survive through the change of many governments–for example, Germany and Italy as  nations still exist after the governments of Hitler and Mussolini.

But politicians would like the people to believe that government and country are the same thing…because politicians derive their power from their position in government.  This gives rise to the tactic of branding anyone opposed to government as being anti-American, opposed to the Nation or Country itself, or labeled  ‘domestic terrorist’.

  • Patriot, Patriotism

The 1828 English language dictionary defines “patriot” as

A person who loves his country, and zealously supports and defends it and its interests.

and defines “patriotism” as

Love of one’s country; the passion which aims to serve one’s country, either in defending it from invasion, or protecting its rights and maintaining its laws and institutions in vigor and purity. Patriotism is the characteristic of a good citizen, the noblest passion that animates a man in the character of a citizen.

More recent definitions are mostly consistent:

a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.

The commonality of  definitions is the allegiance to country. As Red Beckman emphasizes, true patriots owe their allegiance to their country, not to government.

Usurping the Term  ‘Patriot’

One aspect of taking over a country is redefining the language and key terms.  Just a few examples of Obama’s deliberate usurpation of the language in the last year come to mind:  “coup”–used to describe a lawful action by  the Constitutional republic of Honduras; “universal health care” to describe a socialist takeover of the American economy; and  “‘treason” against the environment” to describe anyone who opposes cap and trade legislation.

The words  “patriot” and “patriotism” are now actively being re-defined, such that true patriots as described above are now being described as ‘domestic terrorists’.   Check out this definition of “patriot” from an on-line dictionary:

a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, esp. of individual rights against presumed interference by the federal government

Notice that in this definition of patriot, “Country” is left out and/or is equated with government.  And the Patriot is reduced to only defending his or her individual rights against presumed government ‘interference’.  The inference is that you are a patriot only if you support the government above your individual rights.

The False Patriots

The definition of a false patriot is one who owes allegiance to government and its institutions, rather than to Country. Here’s an example of a false patriot:

“Paying taxes is patriotic”~ Joe Biden

Let me get this straight: paying unconstitutional and illegal taxes to the government, which has no right to collect them, is ‘patriotic’.  Alrighty then.  Biden, the ‘false patriot’, has allegiance to the government, which he believes is the same as Country.

True Patriots give their allegiance to their country.  False Patriots give their allegiance to government, and are controlled by the lies they believe. ~Red Beckman, Walls in Our Minds

False patriotism–allegiance to government–is a source of power for politicians–for it allows, in the name of the “Nation”, deficit spending, illegal wars, no-win wars, confiscatory taxation,  meddling in foreign affairs, and other violations of the Constitution for the United States. The politicians falsely threaten that protesting or wanting a new government or to stop government activities will bring the Country down.

False patriotism is  also a  source of power for ‘wanna be patriots’ who either knowingly or unwittingly are blinded by, ego, greed, the need for control, and the worship of money over genuine respect for liberty.    And just as it is important to map out the opposition, it is also important to identify these false patriots within that are intent upon subverting the will of the people on whatever scale.

These individuals, organizations,  politicians, and media personalities–who often claim to be ‘pro liberty’ and ‘pro constitution’, and pro ‘we the people’–can  be spotted by their attempts to divide people over  issues which are either manufactured or simply taken advantage of.  Others can be identified through the use of their supposedly superior knowledge of group processes to manipulate people into a corner. Others can be identified by the ‘cult worship’ of individuals over liberty.  The point is to splinter at any cost, to dissipate.

The prime targets for the false patriots are the emerging non-partisan, constitution-based movements arising across the Country including the Tea Party activities, 912 movement, and the network of pro liberty media.

Indeed, the Continental Congress 2009 was a prime target of false patriots, who appeared in the form of individual agitators, ego-maniacs, individuals taking advantage of power vacuums, and organized behind the scenes activities.  It is truly a miracle that we produced and ratified the final Articles of Freedom given this assault! 😯

False patriots will use Alinsky tactics.

Unmasking them All

To unmask the false patriots, the place to begin is allegiance.  To Country or to government?  To self, control, fortune, or fame?  Don’t assume, or believe, know it by researching and asking questions.

And call them out, as there is no time to waste.  Although never any kind of patriot in the least, for example, the obot  smrstrauss has finally been exposed.  The goal is to assist the true patriots from being co-opted and the more information we have the better.

Just like the Constitution is not a menu to choose from, neither is the truth. And it will set you free.

    I find Sarah Palin to be one of these false patriots infiltrating the true patriot movement. I have a bit of distrust of her motives. Sarah is in bed with the neo-conservatives, and she is pushing their agenda. She’s endorsing only those candidates that are neo-conservative and touting the Republican party; if one is wide awake, he/she can see that most of them are neocons and they want to “absorb the Tea Party,” as Mrs. Palin suggested. Why didn’t she endorse the true conservative of TX, Debra Medina? She also stated that Tea Partiers should get over their anger with the two-party system and support the GOP, once again. Those were scary words to me. Why the plug for the Republican party? This is disconcerting to me, because it seems that conservative Americans are in love with Sarah P. Is it the nice looks and bubbly personality that swoons our hearts? People must look past the good looks and personality, because as a lover of the Lord Jesus Christ, a lover of truth, and as a true patriot who loves their country, one will not allow that temptation to blind them and overcome their ability to discern good and evil.

    Sarah is now employed by Fox news who is in bed with the devil, and I hope that those of us who’ve awakened, are not falling back to sleep so quickly. Can we honestly trust the “personalities” on Fox News who is now owned by the Saudi’s? Please, come on now. She’s now aligned with the enemy, and in my estimation, has been from the beginning, by adjoining herself to John McCain. Those of us who are awake and love our country should know and understand that John McCain is not on our side. He’s a politician, and so it appears that this is what Sarah Palin is becoming, as well. If she’s in all this unknowingly then I’d say Mrs. Palin needs a large dose of discernment. Someone ought to get the message to her of who she’s dealing with and educate her about the neoconservative movement.

    Paula, I agree with a lot of what you say. If she is attempting to acquire a lot of popularity so that she can run for president and have a big following, Americans need to step back and think of what they are doing. Didn’t we do this already once, install a person in our office of the presidency because of good looks and flowery speech with little or no real experience? She may be slightly more experienced than Obama was but I don’t feel that she has the experience we need today to run our country. I, as a democrat with no real party left, hate that the conservatives have acted like this is their movement. I have marched in marches, stood on street corners with signs against health care, faxed and emailed congress critters as much as the conservatives. And I know many other dems and indies who have done the same. In future elections we need to pay much more attention and scrutinize candidates to make sure their interest is in defending our constitution. We need statesmen and stateswomen and not politicians.

    As someone who is neither a Democrat of a Republican my immediate concern is not the 2012 elections but in the great harm that is being inflicted upon our country right now.

    Actually, Obama’s whole life seems to be nothing but a work of fiction. The man has never shown himself to be Constitutionally eligible to hold the office he now occupies.

    If you’d like to see something from a different point of view, watch the two short videos below which, even though they start slowly and have a bit of fun, contain a wealth of factual data – more than we’ve seen from Obama.

    In fact in the second video a famous senator is quoted speaking about someone that sounds for all the world like “Our Boy” and really strikes a chord.

    Only thing is the senator was the Roman named Cicero speaking in 42 BC – but the message is still very directed and pertinent for all of us: Three Little Words Merry Christmas OmeriKa!!

    I agree, Nancy. Keep it Constitutional. I do believe that Palin does have more experience than Obama (whom I believe is a fraudulent usurper), but like you, I don’t believe she has what it takes to be President. I just got this in my email from Chuck Baldwin (whom I voted for in the last election), and it goes right along with what this particular blog post is about:

  5. 5 Quantum Leap February 12, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    Okay, I have to pipe in here.

    To unmask the false patriots, the place to begin is allegiance. True patriots owe their allegiance to their country, not to government

    Would the partisans count under this definition? I mean could a false Patriot be those who are uber attached to their party no matter what evil is being brought forth by it? I mean “party” is government and not country.

    I’d like to not jump to conclusions about Palin because I do not have all the facts. I do feel she is prone to doublespeak as she stated in the beginning of her speech that Tea Party Movement contain Dems, Indies, and Repubs but then in the same speech she says all the Republican meme and yes the items that were stated above by Paula. Palin may have started out okay but it does seem she has turned into a person who will say what you want to hear just like Steve Dunham does. I guess her speech was made at the “Tea Party NATION” and it is a Republican ‘for profit’ group and an offshoot of the grassroots ‘not for profit’ non-partisan Tea Party Movement?
    I do know that they couldn’t humiliate us with name calling and minimizing so they are now trying to infiltrate. Michele Bachmann must have been relieved to have an ‘out’ for speaking there because when she found out it’s not the real Tea Party Movement she knew it wouldn’t work because she is inclusive of Patriot Dems, and Indies too and knows she needs us.

    I feel as Nancy does. Republicans are trying to hijack the movement when they do not know a thing about protesting nor are they aware of the effect they are having with millions of displaced Dems and Independents. Tea Party NATION’s purpose is to gain back their Government run Republican party while the Tea Party Movement is to save the country. Great article dk. I think we need to publicly distinguish between the 2 groups so they do not succeed in hijacking the Movement and we need to do it repeatedly.
    The teevee pundits are naming some dude saying he started the Tea Party Movement. Makes ya sick when PUMA”S were the one’s who got the ball rolling and teamed up with Team Sarah people. Then Repubs and Indies and Ron paulers came aboard. I remember when we former Hillary supporters and PUMAS were trying to pick a name for it…come on. We went through a phase of tiny rallies dumping whole tea into the rivers to using tea bags to sending tea bags to our congress creeps and then the mass rallies and now the Repub take over and the Ron paulers claiming they started it.. bites. We were and are still disenfranchised. All these people suck and don’t care about us who lost our party and now we don’t care about party politics either.

    These are interesting comments. The question of government or country is significant—it transcends political parties. For the most part, politicians are members of the “brotherhood”. Their ultimate loyalties lie with the Government. They belong to parties, but the overriding drive is to play government. Of course, there are exceptions, but few and they usually began in a non-political backgrounds.
    We are privy to far too many examples this phenomenom at present.Today’s congressmen switch parties, allegiences, adgenda to further their concepts of “government” Country means people and they don’t like people—people are a bother and offen a threat. I hope and pray we can be both to them.
    We don’t have much time, however.

    Well, the best course of action, IMHO, is to recind your memberships in your political party. Keep YOUR values and beliefs, but stop supporting these organizations that pretend to represent you, but do their own bidding.

    Without you, they have no power. Can you imagine if the leaders of the major political parties were told to shut up and sit down, as they don’t have any members? 😉

    Take back your country, by first taking back your self! They’re nothing without you.

    I have read criticisms of Sarah Palin and Scott Browm. I feel that many of the criticisms are too harsh. We need to be careful how we judge the candidates. All of us are a work in progress. There will certainly be no perfect politician. The question is what is essentialin a candidate? Here are some questions that I feel are important to ask. Is the candidate looking to serve the people or their own ambition? Is the candidate willing to listen to the people they serve or is the candidate serving a political party or a peticular agenda? Is the candidate devoted to following the constitution? I don’t expect candidates for political positions to agree with me about everything. There are certain things that are most important to me and I hope there will be candidates available who agree with me on those important issues. I may have to overlook some areas of disagreement in order to vote for the best candidate available. I have not made a final decision on how I feel about Sarah Palin. I agree with her about most things. I am watching how things go with her. But I don’t want to be a cult follower, like the Obama voters.

    Excellent article Dr. Kate! Unfortunately, its also true. It amazes and saddens me how gullible the American People have become to the shiny baubles and flashy whistles and bells of “false patriots.”

    A full month of my time has been stolen from “true sons and daughters of liberty” just since leaving St. Charles by “false patriots,” and koolaid-drinkers fawning over them.

    They have ignored rules they adopted, usurped the authority of the duly-elected and appointed leadership of the Continental Congress, and attempted on almost a daily basis to co-opt and control the work of the Congress.

    There were those during the Second Continental Congress that wanted to make George Washington “King George” because of their blind allegiance to him. Fortunately, the father of our country had enough wisdom, integrity, and common sense to see the folly in such a move, and declined.

    All is not lost though. The TRUTH will set us all free in the end, even those who don’t realize the shackles they have bound themselves with.

    “Eric Erickson justified his action, in a post entitled, “Vigilance: I’m Banning Birfers, Truthers, and Groups Affiliated Therewith“, for the following reasons:

    We must be vigilant. We must be willing to draw a line in the sand and stand against fatuous nonsense that opens up the right to attacks by a left-leaning media intent on embarrassing the good people who have developed through the tea party movement a renewed sense of civic involvement.

    Birfers and Truthers have no place among us. And they are most decidedly not welcome at RedState.”

      Deja Vu. The past is repeating itself but this time from the right side of the aisle.

      I was Hillary supporter in 2008 and found the Taylor Marsh blog. During the primary Taylor was a supporter of Hillary’s as were the majority of her posters. She stated flatly, however, that whoever won the Dem primary would be who she supported and she did.

      She went from a Hillary supporter to an Obama supporter overnight. Even though she warned us it was all the same…shocking. I don’t think her blog ever recovered from the majority of us leaving her site seeking a new home. Thankfully, I found TD’s blog and community quickly thereafter and felt right at home.

      Also, Dick Armey has never made it a secret that he got behind the Tea Party 912 march. He was a keynote speaker for heaven sake. Sarah’s is finally showing her real agenda and we’ll have to wait to see where she lands. In the meantime, I’m staying committed to my local Tea Party and their efforts. We’re still patriots and remain true to holding onto our liberties.

  11. 12 Quantum Leap February 13, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    They are still weaklings them repubs. Don’t make waves lest they get called names. Give me a freakin break. So the media controls them too. 😆 sicko’s. I’d like to see how they do without Indies and unaffiliated ex dems. Not much ya think?

  12. 13 Tenacity February 13, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    Look at the person folks. A true patriot will NOT be a secret society member. They will likely be committed to the constitution, but more importantly recognize the correct pecking order (see, that is God, people (Grand Juries & petit juries), Several States, constitution, branches of government. A true patriot will acknowledge the corruption in the courts, media, education system and churches as well as in the House. A true patriot will not be afraid of being a “laughing stock”. Think about it, name one congressman or senator that objected to Obama’s eligibility when the electoral college vote was taken. NOT ONE, not even Ron Paul objected. Deal in Georgia has finally shown some courage. We must throw every incumbent out of the House.

    We must also restore our Grand Jury system. Look at the farce in Monroe County TN ( The judge has appointed the same puppet as foreman of the Grand Jury there for 27 consecutive years. Can you imagine how many people are in the Tennessee prisons without the benefit of a real Grand Jury indictment? It appears that this kind of usurpation and manipulation is rampant across the country. We must run the government agents out of our courts as well as out of our state houses and federal government.

    We must have sheriffs that are not on the federal take. If you haven’t bought Sheriff Mack’s book, “America’s Last Hope”, get it and learn about The Sheriff Project. This is a key civic action we must implement.

    If you can’t find a candidate worthy of your vote, then you need to run for office.

  13. 14 KJ Kaufman February 13, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    Dr. Kate,

    This was an excellent article. In my opinion one of your best. I had not thought on the definitions of Patriot and False Patriot that you explained. Thank you as always for adding to my education.

  14. 15 Rosemary Woodhouse February 13, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    Paula, most Americans are NOT “Truthers”.

    I agree with Palin that a third party is not a viable option. It will only split the vote as Perot did! If the Republican party went back to its conservative roots and didn’t try to please everyone (“the big tent”), they could right this sinking ship!

    And for the record, I like Palin very much, but do not believe she should run because the media has badly damaged her credibility. If anyone doubts the media still plays an important role in the American psyche because OUR eyes are open, pay heed to the cautionary tale of G.W. Bush. Were Bush not so ridiculed by the media 24/7, we would not be dealing with a usurper resident right now!

  15. 16 Rosemary Woodhouse February 13, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    And for the PUMAs, I remember being “there” with all of you on TexasDarlin’s blog. I maintain that Hillary would have made a MUCH better president, but at the end of the day, Quantum et. al.- you must acknowledge that the Democratic party has almost completely been co-opted by Marxists!


  16. 17 No-nonsense-nancy February 14, 2010 at 11:05 am

    I do beleive that the dem party has been overtaken by Marxists. I am concentrated more on right now and stopping them than on the 1012 election. Anything that Sarah or anyone else can say or do right now to help get the usurpers out I will certainly listen and do what is asked of me.

  17. 18 Paula February 17, 2010 at 10:29 am

    Hi Rosemary,

    We can like Palin, McCain, Brown, Clinton et. al. It is not a question of likability, but character and whether the candidate holds to the Constitution or not. Palin is working for FOX who’s owned by a Saudi? Same with Beck, Hannity, etc. Birds of a feather flock together. Character and integrity would cause these guys to get out, quickly. But, I guess that paycheck is more important. A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rahter than silver and gold.

    I think you’re wrong about “Truthers” as you call us; there’s probably more than you think. What is wrong with wanting to get at the truth of something? Truth matters. Buy the truth and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. Isn’t our whole way of life based on Truth, unless of course, one is a criminal or a politician, basically just a lover of one’s own self?

    As I see it, there is a problem with your statement “if the Republican party went back to its conservative roots and didn’t try to please everyone (“the big tent”), they could right this sinking ship,” and that is there is a big IF in the front of it.
    Americans have been trying this for how many years, now? It doesn’t ever work. Something must change, somehow, somewhere, because the Republican party is not doing what you stated and ditto for the Democrat pary. When will we start to learn that doing the same thing over and over will not bring different results? We can hope for that all we want, but just hoping doesn’t bring about the return to constitutional principles needed. Neither party is based on the Constitution any longer and both parties are infiltrated with those who are only looking out for themselves. Too much corruption in both and lack of strong leadership to uphold the oath they took to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Root out the enemies within! I’m sure you agree that it is about principles, not party. Those principles MUST be based on the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Maybe we don’t even need parties. We just need to vote constitutional principles and charcter, period. Back to simplicity, I say.
