Gee, we’ve just finished ‘black Friday’ and already the commercial rush for Christmas is on. Or not.
Or is it the politically correct, cultural Marxist “holiday rush”?
Thoughts on Our Constitutional Republic
Of all the so called ‘Patriot Actions’ the one that is most disturbing to me is the call for a Constitutional Convention. Over the last several years many have proposed new amendments to the Constitution, including some of the major provisions such as the qualifications for the office of the president, and other amendments that require Congress to follow the same rules as citizens of the United States and a balanced budget amendment.
What we don’t hear, even from the patriots, is the need to eliminate illegal amendments–those not ratified properly by the states– such as the 14th, 16th, and 17th amendments. Nor do we hear calls for the restoration of the original 13th Amendment, which would have prevented lawyers (titles of nobility such as ‘esquire) to serve in government. And of course, nobody talks about enforcing the existing constitution, which for example would eliminate the need for a ‘balanced budget amendment’ because Congress would have to stay within its enumerated powers.
So the lawyers and lobbyists across the country are pushing for a Constitutional Convention, glaringly a ‘con’ as in ‘con con’. Remember this is the same group of people who were barred from serving in government by the original 13th amendment, which ‘disappeared’ from the Constitution after the war of 1812. The British burned the White House and the effort was to eliminate the records, research, and proceedings that produced the Declaration of Independence and the first Constitutional Convention which produced the Constitution for the United States.
The lawyers and legal profession, and its gaggle of judges, would go on to essentially ‘gut’ the Constitution’s provisions by developing the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) and other “legal tools” to prevent we the people from even knowing the strength of the Constitution’s provisions and the protection of our God-given rights enshrined therein. The APA essentially makes it impossible to gut excessive agency development, for example, the EPA, and allows a suit only on the grounds that it violates the APA, not the Constitution’s limits on executive power. If the lawyers were barred initially from serving in the government, what are they doing now rewriting the constitution?
What will Disappear in the New Constitution?
You can believe that our founding on God’s law–common law–will be eliminated. This is the dream of all the marxist dems and all the republicans, now clearly just one part of the cabal that dislikes the American people and disrespects our founding documents, calls our founding fathers ‘terrorists’, and claims that our constitution is fatally flawed. This propaganda has been spread to the general population through government schools (Common Core, anyone?), and now through our churches which have completed the ‘falling away’ as 2 Thessalonians 2:3 predicted. And here we have Pastors saying that the American people do not deserve liberty anymore. We can point fingers at everyone else as to who is responsible for this debacle, but when you point one finger at anyone three point back at you.
If our founding principles disappear, then all we have is a counterfeit. That suits satan’s purposes just fine. As long as we don’t remember God, or Jesus the Christ, our the founding principles of common law within the ten commandments, then confusion and lies will reign. That’s the plan.
Questions for a Constitutional Convention
Is a Constitutional Convention an appropriate tool to renew the foundations of liberty in America? Here are some questions for consideration that will help you decide!
What is going on in your part of the country on a Constitutional Convention? Where do citizens, legislators, Pastors, and attorneys stand on this issue in your state?
Obama is so immature that he stomps his feet, gets all vindictive, and directs the National Park Service to hurt as many Americans as possible…just because America wants to put some constraints on his tempestuous, traitorous behavior. Shutting down everything American as he sends millions of dollars to his Muslim buddies around the world. This man and his administration hates America so much that he is willing to kill, to lie, to deceive to get his way. The buffoonery knows no end with the stooge in charge at the White House.
How Obama continues to hurt America:
Therapy dogs not allowed to see patients
Priests threatened with arrest if they minister to servicemen during the shutdown
Blocking roads so that Americans can’t even take pictures of Mt. Rushmore from outside the park
The CIA, NSA, and FBI warning they can’t
spy on protect Americans in the shutdown
And the treasonous media complies with the brat and blames the Tea Party.
Open thread on all things Obama: buffoonery, debauchery, and stooges
Obama is so desperate to hang onto power that his false flags are openly broadcast and evident to all but the most obtuse. A cold-blooded killer, he has no worries about setting them up to murder Americans. You can bet when he’s involved, he will go to a ‘memorial service’ at the site. Think Gabby Giffords (Judge John Roll’s murder), Sandy Hook, Aurora, Boston. Think Andrew Breitbart, too, although Obama’s memorial would have been too obvious, and the dozens of people murdered during this regime’s reign.
The falseness of these events where Americans are murdered is shown by all the actors that show up to pretend they were gravely wounded–like the guy who faked losing his legs at the Boston Marathon, identified as a faker through videos of his actual loss of limbs in Afghanistan and his putting on a prosthetic at the site of the bombing in Boston. Do you actually think that a man with both his legs blown off would be conscious and holding a tourniquet on his own leg?
And like magic, the media go on a feeding frenzy pointing out the suspect who was never involved in the plot in the first place, pointing away from the obvious involvement of Obama’s hit squad–Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, Naps Napolitano, Blackwater security, and dozens of other ‘lessor players’. Of course, Obama is just using CIA assets who have been brainwashed in the MKUltra program, or hit with a drug like scopolomine.
An article posted here over a year ago identified the hallmarks of a false flag:
And we add to the list
Here is something possibly scheduled for April 28–a facebook posting on a nuclear event in Lost Angeles. Now that this is out the city will be changed or the event scheduled for another time:
Do some digging on this please! :shock:
What should our focus be on now?
…and the list goes on…
The mockingbird media–even the ones who are supposedly ‘exposing’ all of this, have their own agenda too. Is it to stifle revolt, or to incite premature revolt of the American people? Think carefully about who you trust right now.
The false flaggers will answer to God, and it won’t be pretty. Got your place in the lake of fire yet?
Spiritual wickedness in high places, indeed.
The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
A prescient article in Canada Free Press by E.K. Robinson asks the fundamental question of our day as we look to what is next:
Why are we pretending? Pretending that elections in 2014 might change things, that elections in 2016 could too?
Indeed,why are we pretending that we need more research to ‘really’ know what is going on? Or who Obama ‘really is’? Or that the so-called republicans and so-called democrats are really the same party? Or that the theft of our nation has been going on since at least 1871?
With lightening speed those of us ‘behind’ in our learning caught up pretty quickly in the last five years, often learning about the ‘old timers’ who have been awake for many years longer than we have. This is a good thing, and, there comes a time when all this learning must be put into action. As I review my own learning it seems I have crossed new thresholds as an ‘innocent’ study of the Constitution in 2009 produced over 700 articles where the initial topic of Obama’s usurpation turned into a full-fledged ‘seeing the forest from the trees’. In 2013 I am in a profoundly different place on many levels.
What now is my affirmative duty as an American? I think you would agree that it is almost impossible to ‘sit still’ with the information you now have…it is true that we must keep educating but have we run out of time for the willingly blind or fence sitters to ‘wake up’? throwing pearls after swine..those who are not listening cannot or will not…they have been deceived sometimes willingly.
As we complete the second month of the new year, I am inspired, as are perhaps you, to reflect, learn, and make a plan for my own work in doing my job as an American, exercising the revolutionary right we have as in our Declaration of Independence:
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
The States right now
might just as well be are colonies of the federal government, which has abandoned the restraints that We the People set out in our revolutionary founding. The Second Amendment was designed for this moment, when the government became tyrannical, stationed troops in the homeland, and taxed the without representation. Is it any wonder that it is under attack, as the last bastion of our defense, and that they will kill to ensure it happens?
Americans who are alert have exercised restraint; it is those who are unaware that squander the moment. While governments should not overturn for any light reason, the Declaration reminds us of our weaknesses:
… all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
As we deeply reflect on the status of our Nation and the government that has come to control it, its deep roots and multiple tools, does anyone have any question in their mind about what is our duty from hereon out? Do we need any more debates, analyses, evidence about Obama and the entire government’s complicity in the takeover by a foreign ‘agent’? How about on the role of the banksters and international financiers, debt, government growth, taxes, or slavery of citizens? How about the
growth of the police state surrounding us?
We face a Constitutional Crisis unknown except at our founding. What is our Affirmative Duty as Americans knowing what we do about our government?
Unfortunately we cannot count on the police or local law enforcement to help, they only have to enforce the law and don’t have an affirmative duty to protect an individual.
Time and history would assert that it is our Constitutional duty now to act in the affirmative defense of our Constitutional Republic through the dismantling the illegal government that exists right now and establishing new Guards for our future security.
We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.~Albert Einstein
As far as the problems confronting us as Americans, our advantage is we now know the ‘thinking that was used to create the kind of problems we face’. We have their names, organizations, connections, and what they control. We know what their tools are, including these horrific false flags involving the murder of Americans here and abroad. It is a sobering understanding in the context of what our duty is as Americans today. Our enemies are ruthless and will stop at nothing to achieve their goals.
And we outnumber them. We are ‘armed’ with a lot more than a weapon in our own defense, and now suddenly, our offense. Think about and gather from that. Each one of us that are awake has a gift to give to this struggle, and our affirmative duty individually is to find it and use it. In our lifetimes this is uncharted territory that involves a combination of pushing back, nullifying on a personal, community and state-wide level, and creating new Guards for our future security.
But as we do step up, I believe we have a duty as Americans to do so with certain guidelines:
All the laws, executive orders, bad legislation, ignorance, threats, and drones have no intrinsic value or worth except by those who want to control what they cannot. The authors of these actions have no idea that they are cutting their own throats. We have no obligation to follow them whatsoever: they have lost the consent of the people. And they have no idea what judgment they will bring upon themselves. All they know, like Satan, is that their time is short.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.- King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Pure Cambridge Edition
Think small cells, neighborhoods, preparation; read, learn, understand; local action; be the Watchmen. When we’ve had visible leaders, they* have killed them…
Ezekiel 33:6 – But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take [any] person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
Jeremiah 51:12 – Set up the standard upon the walls of Babylon, make the watch strong, set up the watchmen, prepare the ambushes: for the LORD hath both devised and done that which he spake against the inhabitants of Babylon.
Now that the fraudulent “Arab Spring” has turned into openly whipped up rage and hatred against America and the West, our liberals are still in denial. Their power, their privileges, their huge vanity is at stake. That is why they are desperately trying to fool millions of Americans for the next two months. Expect two solid months of Big Lies. ~Denial is Now National Suicide
Obama’s hatred of America was so clear from the beginning that people like me began writing about him trying to understand why he hated the U.S., when for all intents and purposes, he has benefited greatly from all the United States has to offer–education, opportunity, scholarships, book offers…he and his Wookie
beard wife both received law degrees from prestigious universities, only to give them up before being forced to lose them over lies and fraud. His campaign was hateful then and is now, with racist, bigoted, elitist core themes, skullduggery, and thuggish tactics that bring to mind the Chicago Mob on cocaine and steroids.
Blaming others is what liberals do best. It is a sign of desperation, of the breakdown of an ideology that is no longer believed even by its own priesthood. Liberals live near panic because their beliefs are crumbling. Let’s give them a little push. The life you save may be your country’s.
June 8, 1967
Don’t forget that we the people are expendable, along with the truth. And the attack on our liberty is not over.
The problem with John McCain’s campaign ‘against’ Obama in 2008–and all the republicans–was that he intended to lose all along. When he picked Sarah Palin as his running mate, he almost won the election because of her popularity. So he had to undermine her and his republican, luciferian, and banking cabal had to manufacture an economic crisis quickly, and engineer his poor response, to make sure Obama ‘won’ the election. Not to mention that McCain lost more than 10 million republican votes because they simply stayed home and wouldn’t vote for him. It will be just the same with Mitt Romney–we don’t want him as our candidate but the republicans have once again engineered their own defeat just to play games with the demon-crats.
Its time that John McCain was confronted and recalled. There are many of us in Arizona that will be initiating a recall campaign of John McCain very soon, and soon enough you will see our fundraising efforts posted everywhere. We will need about a quarter of a million signatures–Maricopa County alone could provide most of them…considering McCain’s obvious treason involved in purposely losing to, failing to expose, and current collaboration with Obama.
Here is an open letter to McCain from Dr. David Earl-Graef LtCol USAFR, (h/t Jeff Lichter)
Open letter to: Sen. John Sydney McCain III:
Not so long ago in the military there were certain acts looked upon with such disdain that we seldom even spoke of them. In fact, we seldom actually encountered them, so there was no need. One is cowardice and another is worse, much worse –treason.
For the sake of others reading this letter, I point out that all service members enlisted and officer alike takes an Oath. While the Oaths are slightly different we are individually bound to them. What follows is the Oath taken by the Officers:
“I, (state your name), having been appointed a (rank) in the United States (branch of service), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the office upon which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
It is important for those seeing this for the first time to note, the Oath for officers specifically states that the Constitution will be supported and defended against all enemies and it acknowledges that the enemy may be found on foreign soil or in one’s own backyard. I would even say an enemy can arise in oneself if the desires of personal gain or power or sense of self importance are allowed to become greater than the desire to honor ones Oath. Perhaps indeed, this is the greatest enemy for none are immune to it and it is insidious in is appearance.
Would you not agree, Senator McCain, it is implicit that a United States Military Officer or Public servant who takes this oath and then conspires or is a party to an act or actions that seeks to undermine by purpose of evasion, the spirit and intent of the Constitution of the United States would fit the definition a traitor? Would you not also agree that those who take the Oath are not at liberty to pick and choose which parts of the Constitution they will defend while choosing to ignore others? One part is not separable from the others just as we, as a Nation, are not separable from the sovereignty of our creator from which our rights come.
Some time ago, I wrote you a personal letter pleading with you to honor your oath you took as a Military officer and then again as a United States Senator. The letter cover was clearly marked that the contents were personal and for you only. While it was initially returned unopened- the second mailing was not, so I must assume you received it.
In my letter I pleaded with you to once again display the courage you did as young Naval Aviator and then as a POW in Vietnam. I asked you to stop and consider if you had put your own ambitions and sense of self importance in front of your duty. I asked you to step forward and apologize to the Nation for not being honest with us. I assured you and I had full confidence that such an act of humility would be accepted and the American People would forgive you of your trespass, for your action would spare us from an ongoing injustice of such proportion our Nation has never seen before. I pleaded with you for the good of our Nation and even for your own redemption to come forward and expose the greatest fraud that has been and is being perpetrated on the American people; a fraud in which you yourself played a part. I acknowledged how difficult it would be and I also acknowledged the necessity of it just the same. I NEVER received an answer-nothing from you, not so much as single word. Not an explanation-nothing. The same silence you exhibited during the 2008 campaign.
So now I am given no choice but to write this for all to see. I cannot find the words to describe the extent of my disappointment but only state that it grieves me immensely as I trusted you and respected you as a fellow military officer. Before I discovered what I am about to tell the Citizens, I even gave you something that was precious to me, my vote for you to become the President of the United States. In this moment, I would rather have suffered total disenfranchisement from my right to vote, than to bear the shame and embarrassment that I gave my vote to you.
As a US Military officer, in keeping with my oath of office I demand that you, Sen. John Sydney McCain III, answer not to me but to the to the Citizens of the United States why you are not guilty of treason. Please show them that I am in error and that you did not betray your Oath as an Officer and as a Representative of the People. Explain to them why your name and that of Barrack Hussein Obama BOTH appear on Senate resolution 511 declaring you John Sydney McCain III a “Natural Born Citizen” by virtue that BOTH of your parents were US Citizens regardless you were not born on sovereign US soil.
I am not going to belabor myself explaining to you the basis for my assertion that neither you or Barack Hussein Obama meet the Constitutional requirements to hold the office of POTUS. I am certain you know what defines a “Natural Born Citizen “and America is leaning quickly. What I am clearly stating is that both you and Barak Obama had SERIOUS questions regarding your qualifications under Art. II section 1 of the United States Constitution. I am clearly stating that BOTH your names are in the Congressional record of SR 511. Tell me how this does not show that there was collusion between you and Barack Hussein Obama to undermine the Constitution of The United States. Why is Barack Hussein Obamas name on that document with yours? Is this what bought your silence during the campaign?
Many people believe that if Barack Obama was not qualified to hold the office YOU would have brought this up during the campaign. Those that are less informed and support Barack Obama use this claim as “proof” that Barack Obama is himself qualified. They use this to ridicule and demean the very citizens you represent and you do absolutely nothing except remain silent on the issue and let them bear the brunt of the insults. You stood by while Lt Col Terry Lakin was stripped of his honor, everything taken from him to include his freedom just as you were in Vietnam and you did NOTHING. Do you not think the People have a right to an explanation? Tell them plainly why YOU would not be BEHOLDING to Barack Obama on the very issue of eligibility?
It is not now nor ever was my intent to publically humiliate you, or in any way bring disrespect upon the office of the Senate that you occupy. I hope you see that you have given me no choice but to move this to the public arena. I will not remain silent while I see our Constitution shredded before my eyes by what appears to be an act of treason. You were elected to serve the people not yourself and you are not above them. I am certain that this letter will make you angry but I am not the one who betrayed my Oath, you are. Please, I am asking you again to step forward and do what is right for yourself and the country. We all have made mistakes and we all are entitled to forgiveness but only when we confess those mistakes and ask for it.
If I am wrong I will withdraw my demand and offer you a public apology and I will ask for forgiveness from you. If I am right however I remind you that Judas Iscariot had his price, the promise of 30 pieces of Silver. For him, in the end, he lost everything to include his soul. No price is worth that. Certainly not the Presidency, not your Senate seat – not even if one were to gain the entire world. Was a Quid pro Quo in the form of a promise of silence regarding the illegal candidacy of Barack Hussein Obama your price? Did you commit treason or were you duped? I still believe you have an opportunity to reconcile yourself to your Oath of office and to the American people and to God; but the open door to this opportunity will at some point close FOREVER and no amount of pleading to the people will redeem you. The cloak of darkness that has kept this from the American people is rapidly coming unraveled. This fraud WILL BE EXPOSED and your part in it will not be forgotten. You will be held accountable to the American people in a court of law or before the Congress. Do not miss the opportunity to step forward -the time is now not later.
Dr. David Earl-Graef LtCol USAFR
For more information:
The usurper thought he could hide his true intentions, identity, and idiocy from the American people, but he has failed miserably. When one is so arrogant as to be transparent in his hatred of America, Americans and in particular, white people, one’s own shit eventually lands on one’s own head. Obama could never have made it without assistance, and those who have enabled this treachery are also now exposed and subject to criminal charges due to their mistake in releasing this menace upon America.
Let’s make a list:
The establishment republicans, the democrats, and the Congress are entirely complicit in this attack on America and do not have my consent to continue. They must all resign and be replaced starting now. Start your recall proceedings in each state now, and don’t forget to include the judicial cowards.
Obama and his entire crowd are “merchants of despair”:
Who would you deport? Who would you prosecute, fine, and jail? Who should pay the ultimate price for the betrayal of America?
Well, the republicans don’t have any, and the democrats never had them. But these two can’t seem to stop looking for them…
If you’d like to add a caption, by all means be my guest! :lol:
In the meantime, here are some excellent interviews and events that took place this week:
You see boys above, real Patriots do have balls, we don’t need to go looking for them. The establishment will not have an easy time of it, as the Revolution will not be televised.
America would be in better shape if we had more statesmen discussing the issues in light of constitutional argument and not through political labels used to dumb-down the thought process of choosing a candidate.~Timothy N. Baldwin, J.D.
The virulence with which the so-called ‘Patriots’, ‘Conservatives’, and ‘Constitutionlists’ dismiss Ron Paul is a fine measure of their utter lack of knowledge of and respect for the Constitution, liberty, and history; it is also an indicator of their moral collapse and intellectual bankruptcy. Unable to mount any critique Ron Paul’s positions, his record, or ideas, they search for the false promise of an idea that Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, or Huntsman could ‘beat’ the disaster known as Obama/Soetoro–why vote for any of them when their ideas are just like Obama’s? Do you think any of these ridiculous RINOs would, if elected, eliminate Obamacare, stop the spending, return power to the states, or make Congress follow their oath of office? Do you think any of them would not pardon Obama for his crimes against Americans and crimes against humanity for using our weapons to overthrow governments that are of no threat to the United States?
I was stunned when listening to a blog talk radio show which claims to be about the constitution to hear the speakers totally eviscerate the Constitution’s provisions on who is to declare war…“drkate says that the Constitution says only Congress can declare war–that is absolutely wrong!!!” So I had to ask them if they thought Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Vietnam, and Granada, and El Salvador actions were ‘cool’ with them.
Equally stunning is the absolute silence when mentioning the reality of the Federal Reserve and the related Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments; while agreeing an audit of the federal reserve is necessary, and that both amendments were unconstitutional–there is no application of that constitutional thinking to the selection of candidates for the White House. Stating that there was no difference between the republicans and democrats brought jeering responses like “that sounds like a Ron Paul line”. Who are these people who claim to love America?
It is hard work to right the ship of state known as America, and to finally and permanently eliminate the forces that want to destroy us. It is outside of most people’s comfort zone, and when faced squarely with themselves, people do not want to admit they have been duped or that their own studies tell them that a one Dr. Ron Paul has been right all along. So they resort to name-calling and outright lies, all the while claiming to be Patriots…even leading so-called Patriot’s organizations.
Here’s an answer:
(Posted with permission)
J.B. William’s article attacking Ron Paul, released on December 30, 2011 on NewsWithViews.com, perhaps deserves (I use the word loosely) a response. Williams’ assumes a lot and qualifies virtually nothing. He takes for granted the meaning and understanding of words like “conservative” and “liberal” and uses them to pigeon hole politics and pit people against Ron Paul. It is this kind of miniscule attention to detail that spreads misinformation and disinformation masqueraded as “fact.”
Let us consider Williams’ attacks on Ron Paul in order, and I will offer a critique for the sake of integrity in journalism and truth in politics.
1. Williams says, “Ron Paul remains totally MIA (Missing In Action) on Obama’s Article II ineligibility, which disqualifies Obama for office and every member of congress, including Ron Paul!”
This is a useless tool against Ron Paul and benefits no voters. There is not one Republican candidate taking on this issue. One has to ask, what difference does it make that Ron Paul is not leading the charge in this regard? If no one is taking on this issue as a part of their campaign, then everyone’s score is “zero to zero.” Williams’ use of “fact” is a tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic jab at Ron Paul as a “constitutionalist.” But this jab can be made universally to all the candidates; thus, this information is useless and irrelevant to persuade the voters and distinguish the candidates.
2. Williams says, “Mr. Constitution would know the primary function of the Federal Government is to protect and defend the United States against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. – To do that in a 21st Century world, you better have one hell of a standing Military, which Mr. Constitution also opposes.”
Williams obviously mocks Ron Paul as “Mr. Constitution.” Williams steps outside of the objective and enters into the subjective and emotional. Williams’ credibility as an objective journalist diminishes significantly. We need less emotion in politics and more statesmanship. This mockery fails in that attempt.
As to Paul’s stance on defending the United States (while also supporting and defending the United States Constitution), Williams’ offers no support of his insinuation that Paul will fail at protecting the United States, and he offers no references as to what Paul’s plan is for the military and our entanglement in foreign affairs.
It is difficult to take journalism like this seriously when there is not one reference to a reliable source about Paul’s plan. Nor does Williams generate a comparative analysis of Paul’s plan versus the other candidate’s plan and how those plans conform to the constitution and to good policy as it relates to all of the factors affecting America right now (i.e. depressed economy, over-taxation, federal bureaucracies, unemployment, etc.). It amounts to, “ok, children, the sky is green because I say it’s green,” tautology.
3. Williams says, “Obama likes running unopposed. He has won every political race by eliminating his opponents, leaving him unopposed in the general election.”
What Obama likes has nothing to do with Ron Paul’s positions and his viability as an opponent.
4. William says, “Hillary Clinton was a lock for the DNC nomination in the 2008 primaries. Then the nobody from nowhere with a blank résumé and no birth certificate, stole the show. In the end analysis, the left always marches forward in lockstep, despite their many internal disputes. But the political right is more divided and scattered than ever in U.S. history, and they are no match for the unified international left that has already eliminated any real opposition for Obama in 2012.”
Williams makes an observation (“the political right is more divided and scattered than ever in U.S. history”) that offers a reality check about our political condition. Perhaps the reason for this so-called division is because the Democrat-Republican monopoly is finally starting to crumble and the people are getting sick of the same ol’ politics as usual.
Indeed, competition of ideas and real policy critique are resulting because of people like Ron Paul who are willing to think and act independently of political party. The spirit of independence was seen as a good thing in America, and political parties were seen as a potential hazard to that independence of thought. Attacking Ron Paul on these “divisive” grounds does little to convince the American who sees a problem with Democrat-Republican elitism corrupting what we want in leaders.
To Williams, marching in “lockstep” with the political party of choice is more important than one’s responsibility to the Supreme Law of the Land. Yet, for many people, Ron Paul’s breakup of the party monopoly is a long-awaited answer to prayer.
5. Williams says, “Ron Paul will not rule out a third-party run.”
So what? This has nothing to do with Ron Paul’s positions as a constitution-protector and nothing to do with his current candidacy as a Republican. Williams does not develop this thought at all but just throws it out there and presumably hopes that it will stick on the wall for people to draw their own (sinister) conclusions.
6. Williams says, “The Ron Paul campaign is built on a foundation of social liberals, chronic anti-war misfits, modern day peaceniks seeking legalized drugs, atheists, and Democrats and Independents with libertarian leanings. Nowhere in there is ‘conservatives…’ who oppose Paul as much as they oppose Obama. If Ron Paul were a constitutionalist, he would attract the conservative vote.”
Williams demonstrates the epitome of prejudice and incredibility on a political level. The tone of his statement rings of personal offense. Williams’ mis- and over-characterization of Ron Paul’s “foundation” should warn any person (who cares about logical argument) reading his article to be cautious about his premises and conclusions.
Williams uses only key-word titles as “proof” of his arguments against Ron Paul; terms like, “liberal,” “misfits,” “peaceniks,” “atheists,” “conservatives.” Perhaps Williams should have included a glossary of terms in his article, because these words have very little relationship in understanding and applying the Supreme Law of the Land.
America would be in better shape if we had more statesmen discussing the issues in light of constitutional argument and not through political labels used to dumb-down the thought process of choosing a candidate. Williams’ argument using this description amounts to a fifteen second commercial of a candidate explaining why you should “vote for me: I’m a conservative republican!”
And by induction of Williams’ random comments, the word “conservative” only includes those who would use the federal government to force “morality” on the people even though the U.S. Constitution leaves the matters of morality, health, property, contracts, marriage, etc., to the States. Williams’ attack on Ron Paul in this regard is as much an attack on the United States Constitution.
7. William says, “Ron Paul is at odds with conservatives on numerous key issues.
1. Paul supports same-sex marriage
2. Paul opposes the death penalty for violent criminals
3. Paul opposes mandatory sentencing for three-time losers
4. Paul supports legalizing illicit drugs
5. Paul opposes firm enforcement of immigration laws
6. Paul opposes free trade
7. Paul opposes a strong U.S. Military and National Defense
8. Paul opposes foreign diplomacy and prefers isolationism
9. Paul opposes stricter limits on criminal campaign finance
10. Paul opposes the Patriot Act, but also insists on letting terrorist live amongst us
11. Paul supported the arbitrary withdrawal from Iraq that resulted in deadly terror attacks hours later.”
Williams presupposes an “opposition” between Ron Paul and “conservatives”, even though he does not define the terms he uses repeatedly to try to prove Ron Paul is not “conservative.” And should Williams decide to define the term “conservative,” it would do America well to compare the term “conservative” with the original textualism and intention of the constitution.
When the President swears the oath of office, it is to protect the constitution, not someone’s subjective understanding of “conservative” or “liberal.” Are we not past the years when these terms are used as a basis for any understanding deeper than a Hallmark card?
Williams’ analogy of what Paul “supports” and “opposes” reminds me of the arguments made against the ratification of the United States Constitution. The argument went like this, “since the constitution specifically named items outside the jurisdiction of Congress to regulate (i.e. Bill of Rights), then all items not included in that list are subject to federal control.” That is, since item A through E was specifically excluded from their jurisdiction, the remaining items F through Z are included by implication. The Federalist Paper writers, of course, smashed that argument.
Williams’ illogical argument is similar against Ron Paul: since Paul will not use the federal government to create and enforce laws regarding marriage, drugs, and other domestic issues, he therefore supports gay-marriage, high crimes, stoned druggies, etc. If one is a supporter of the constitution, this should excite us—putting power back where it belongs, allowing the democratic process to reflect the will of the people in a more localized, controlled manner.
In reality, Ron Paul’s position mirrors what the Federalist Paper writers said concerning the powers to regulate the general welfare of the people: the States will retain “a very extensive portion of active sovereignty…[whose powers] are numerous and indefinite”; and the “powers delegated…to the federal government are few and defined” (James Madison, Federalist Paper 45). Apparently, to Williams, this is not acceptable.
Additionally, Williams mischaracterizes Ron Paul’s positions. Williams references no credible sources and gives the reader nothing to hang his hat on. He expects people to rely on his word alone. I would hope that people reading Williams’ article would do their own homework and find that his descriptions are inaccurate and distorting at best.
7. Williams says, “As a result, he cannot muster the conservative vote in November 2012, without which, he cannot defeat Barack Obama.”
This statement is based upon Williams’ own definition of “conservative,” whatever that is supposed to mean. Undoubtedly, these terms “conservative” and “liberal,” which describe people in a one-dimensional image, are not accurate to describe the true multi-dimensional makeup of America. Williams ignores the nationally-known cases where people see Ron Paul as the only true conservative. The pigeon-holing simply will not work in 2012. America needs more substance. Williams’ conclusion lacks any analysis based upon any facts.
8. Williams says, “Most of Paul’s ‘social conservative’ congressional votes are actually Tenth Amendment votes, which sidestep the actual issue at hand and redirect the discussion to states right. While conservatives are strong on Tenth Amendment states right, they are also strong on founding principles and values grounded in the moral laws of nature, at the foundation of our Constitutional Representative Republic. Paul is actually a liberal leaning populist candidate, rather than a Jeffersonian libertarian.”
I seriously question Williams’ understanding of or appreciation for the U.S. Constitution at this point. Williams tries to make Paul appear antithetical to the “founding principles and values grounded in the moral laws of nature…of our Constitutional Representative Republic”; however, it was that very generation that left matters of morality, police power, and domestic regulation to the States—the same matters Ron Paul says are the States to govern.
Williams also attempts to separate Paul’s political ideology from Thomas Jefferson’s. He does so in the attempt to disenfranchise those who would support Paul for his support of States’ rights. Yet, Williams does nothing to support his statement.
To Williams, it is not enough that the President of the United States would leave these matters to the States to regulate, as the constitution requires; he would rather use the President to enforce laws of morality even though that exercise of unconstitutional power goes against the “principles and values [which founded] our Constitutional Representative Republic.” Williams is more concerned about enforcing (federal) laws he likes as a “social conservative” than getting the country on the right track of constitutional governance.
Williams’ logic and conclusions are irreconcilable.
9. Williams says, “He has little in common with American conservatives and that presents a serious problem for him when conservative voters are looking to reverse course in America. Paul has been MIA on far too many constitutional issues to call himself a constitutionalist with a straight face.”
How Williams can make such a broad statement as to claim to know the characteristics of the “common American conservative” demonstrates a less-than-statesman approach. Williams displays the “he is not on our team” fallacy. Furthermore, Williams fails to acknowledge the Americans who would not place themselves into the two small pigeon holes used to control political outcomes.
10. Williams says, “Beyond lower taxes and less government, he has literally nothing in common with conservatives and even his smaller government leanings can’t work in a socially and morally bankrupt society.”
Within this statement Williams demonstrates Neo-Con ideology, wittingly or not. Williams says that Paul’s “smaller government leanings can’t work in a socially and morally bankrupt society.” This should warn every reader of a dangerous political philosophy.
Williams says that since “America is socially and morally bankrupt,” the federal government must be big and strong enough to police the United States because without it, America would decay into anarchy and chaos.
Williams’ suggested constitutional model was rejected in 1787 at the constitutional convention and follows the argument advanced by advocates of a monarchy: that is, people of large populations are incapable of adequately governing themselves and require an executive to rule over every aspect of their lives.
It is for this reason that Ron Paul is doing so well throughout the country. Americans want a President who is willing to put power back into the hands of the people. It is called self-government.
11. Williams says, “Then we have the issue of white supremacists and anti-Semites in his past. Remember, Obama must run unopposed… and the U.S. press will tear Paul from limb to limb long before next November.”
Again, William acts as a “drive-by” media and throws out a loaded statement with no evidence or credible references to support his statement.
12. Williams’ says, “Voters who grasp the reality that the nation is on the brink of total collapse and the world is on the verge of WWIII, are looking for who can defeat Obama and who might have the backbone to protect the nation from eminent danger on several fronts. I’m not sure such a candidate exists in the 2012 election, but I am certain that Ron Paul isn’t it. Facts don’t have any friends, but so far, Paul fans don’t seem too impressed by facts. Paul is unqualified for the job he seeks on this single issue alone! His anti-Semitism and poor-pitiful misunderstood jihadists, blame America first and often rhetoric should be enough to end his campaign… but do the facts matter anymore?”
Williams recognizes that the United States is in serious trouble, but he ironically fails to recognize that much of our troubles derive from a corrupted monetary system and the only candidate calling this fact out is Ron Paul. If there is a premier problem, it is in the area of economics and finance—a fruit of a bitter root most politicians are not willing to address.
Above all, Ron Paul is a proven statesman in this area and has identified the root of the counterfeiters and the evils within economic and financial institutions of the United States and World banks. Paul knows what it will take to rid us of these wrongs and to put America back on the path of social and financial-economic prosperity. It will take Ron Paul as President and governors in the States who recognize these matters to restore America to where it should and must be for a successful future.
If Williams does not recognize the seriousness of our monetary problems and Ron Paul’s obvious and fitting statesmanship and accuracy in this area, then it is no wonder he does not like Ron Paul.
Williams needs to know that Ron Paul only started what will continue until remedy is made in the matters of corrupted economics and finance, unjust foreign entanglement, and unconstitutional governance. Talk all you want about “social conservatism” and “military strength,” the United States will not be able to adequately solve and resolve any of major problems on any level without an economy to fund it.
Upon Williams’ conclusion, he makes a reference to “facts,” yet he barely refers to one fact in his entire article, which is based upon presumptions, presuppositions, mischaracterizations, and generalizations—without even a hyperlink to direct the reader to learn more about what Ron Paul would do as President.
I ask Williams the same question he asks, “do the facts matter anymore?,” with an additional question, “does the United States Constitution matter anymore?”

And, what if the powers that be are lying to you about Ron Paul?
They are about to find out that ignorance is not bliss, it is instead the betrayal of America.
The true intention of the GOP, their candidates, their minions, and their so-called “Tea Party”–yes, Tea Party, the GOP now owns you– have become so clear in the last two years–they all want the current corrupt system to remain the same. Aside from the corruption, the blindness, and the ignorance, I conclude they’ve forgotten entirely what this Country is supposed to be about, and who makes a true leader. Its like rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic.
Here is a reminder of the kind of person a true Constitutionalist, a true Conservative and a true American should vote for.A Statesman loves the Constitution A Politician hates (or is afraid of) the Constitution A Statesman enforces the Constitution. A Politician violates the Constitution. A Statesman uses truth to keep power in the hands of the people. A Politician uses lies to gain power over the people. A Statesman‘s primary concern is to secure freedom for future generations. A Politician’s primary concern is to get elected or re-elected. A Statesman will not play politics with the people’s money. A Politician will buy votes with tax money. A Statesman knows the people must control government. A Politician believes that government should control people. A Statesman knows the people must limit government’s power to tax. A Politician believes government should have unlimited power to tax. A Statesman gives his allegiance to the people and country. A Politician gives his allegiance to government. A Statesman will demand a balanced budget. A Politician will spend money stolen from future generations(deficit spending). A Statesman will cause peace. A Politician will cause wars.
Do NOT tell me you are a ‘constitutional conservative’ and vote for Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Huntsman, or Bachman. They are wolves in elephant’s clothing. Ah yes, Miss Tea Party Bachman voted for the NDAA…so I guess you’ll have your Tea Party organization inside the FEMA camps?
The conservatives who have found themselves in intentional ignorance are about to find out that their actions betray their children, the future, and America.
The Defendant states that the issue raised by the Plaintiff was “soundly rejected by 69,456,897 Americans in the 2008 elections.” See Def.’s Mtn. at 5. This statement reflects a complete lack of understanding regarding Constitutional protections.
How could the issue of Obama’s lack of Constitutional eligibility for the office he usurped have been ‘rejected’ when the media, congress, the secretaries of the states, and the judiciary conspired to never let the public know and to block every single effort to uncover the truth? This sounds a lot like the strategy of blaming the victim—says Obama, “its not my fault, the voters elected me”.
Just as the challenge to the placement of Obama’s name on the Georgia ballot began, Obama’s attorney responded against it with this ludicrous argument. Hoping to keep his unconstitutionality out of the news, at the same time his justice department accused Sheriff Joe of racism…effectively creating another diversion in his scam against the people of the United States of America.
This is how this man-child has operated in complete defiance of the Constitution, and his remark cited above shows exactly what the game plan was, and is. Reduce a Constitutional Republic down to mob rule, aka ‘democracy’, create massive diversions, create chaos, and create war to hide his foreign agenda and intent to bankrupt, divide, and destroy America.
Out of this wrecking-ball rubble the Constitutionalists have prevailed, and now challenge him at every step. Whether Obama succeeds in fraudulently placing his name on the ballot in each state, tens of millions of people know that there are serious questions of his origin, citizenship, and legality that remain. And the people have three years of experience with him spending America into oblivion, terrorizing Americans, sicking his justice department and the thugs at Homeland Security, and giving everyone but America consideration. The result is that Obama will have to flip more than 30 million votes to steal this election.
The republicans (aka democrats), desperate to save their power and continue the charade now want to force their candidates down America’s throat, aka Romney, Gingrich, Cain (before the fall)…and are willing to commit voter fraud to do so. In this context, and with the real prospect of losing all our liberties, the following initiatives are worth our time, attention and support. With many of us unable to financially contribute to these efforts, support can take many forms…
In the event that Obama steals the election again, the time is NOW to start working on your senators and representatives to ensure that Obama is challenged in the joint session of Congress held in early January 2013 to ‘confirm’ the results. All we need is one Senator, and one Congressman to issue the challenge, in writing in that forum. There is plenty of material to submit with the challenge.
Obama and his banksters will threaten Americans throughout 2012–they have already attacked us but watch for the warnings of attacks within the U.S. if we dare to step out of line and vote for the Constitution, not the NWO as brought to you by Romney, Gingrich, or Obama.
Oh, and please don’t forget all the people who have stood up against this regime, those who have died, lost their homes and savings, and soldiers sent into harms way without tools or support. Let not their sacrifices be in vain.
