Oath Keepers is putting up a billboard right outside the main gate of Ft. Leavenworth Kansas to respond directly to the Small Wars Journal article by Leavenworth instructor Colonel Kevin Benson which paints the Tea Party movement as a future military opponent during domestic CONUS operations by the U.S. military. You can read more on that article here. Here is the billboard we are putting up:

Nullify Obamacare in Georgia!

Patriots,

Please assist in defeating implementation of this federal mandate in our state! The Tenth Amendment Center has provided resources to facilitate this effort and raise public awareness of our options at the state and local levels.

INTRODUCTION

Dear Friends;

We are all familiar with the cliche’ definition of insanity generally attributed to Albert Einstein: doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.

Why then do we still look to Washington D.C. – to the White House, to the Congress and to the Courts – to solve the very problems they themselves created?

Over and over again.

Now that’s insane!

The solution to ridding our state of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care  Act or “ObamaCare” lawlessness is NULLIFICATION! States simply need to stand up and say, “No! We do not accept this, and we will not comply.”

The States that created the federal government and agreed to its existence by a compact we call the Constitution are fully empowered to decide for themselves NOT to comply with any act outside the scope of federal authority as enumerated in the Constitution.

Thomas Jefferson held that the states were not “united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government,” and that” the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself.” He went on to assert that when the federal government exercised undelegated powers, its acts are “unauthoritative, void, and of no force,” and “nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.”

Tenth Amendment Center communications director Mike Maharrey contends that states utilizing nullification to reject ObamaCare are simply responding to a rebellious federal government that refuses to act within its constitutional limits.

“Who is really behaving lawlessly here? A federal government that refuses to operate within its delegated powers, and rips authority away from the states and the people? Or the states, working through legitimate democratic processes, saying, “No! We don’t accept this”? I would argue it’s the federal government that’s in rebellion, and it’s time for the states to put a check on illegitimate federal power.”

The Tenth Amendment Center is fully committed to the nullification of the PPACA in our State.

“States should not fear the consequences of nullification. As per Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling, Congress is not permitted to penalize states that refuse to implement ObamaCare. In the majority decision, Chief Justice Roberts stated, “What Congress is not free to do is to penalize States that choose not to participate in that new program by taking away their existing Medicaid funding. However, he added, “Nothing in our opinion precludes Congress from offering funds under the [law] to expand the availability of health care, and requiring that states accepting such funds comply with the conditions on their use.”

Are you willing to trade this latest loss of LIBERTY for a few extra “federal dollars?” Are you ready to join the fight? Are you ready to take back control of your state?

Please join us in this important cause!
For Freedom and Liberty!

Thomas Jefferson Alive and Well Today?

Thomas Jefferson had it nailed… are we sure this wasn’t written yesterday???

“…and let the honest advocate of confidence read the Alien & Sedition acts, and say if the constitution has not been wise in fixing limits to the government it created, and whether we should be wise in destroying those limits? let him say what the government is, if it be not a tyranny, which the men of our choice have conferred on the President, and the President of our choice has assented to and accepted over the friendly strangers to whom the mild spirit of our country & it’s laws had pledged hospitality & protection: that the men of our choice have more respected the bare suspicions of the President, than the solid rights of innocence, the claims of justification,[22] the sacred force of truth, and the forms & substance of law & justice: in questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution”

– Thomas Jefferson
from The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, Volume 30: 1 January 1798 to 31 January 1799

Land of the Free to Watch its People from the Skies Continuously

Tyrannical Uncle SamThe movement and actions by our Big Brother Nanny State is turning up the heat on us as if we are a pot of frogs who will soon be looking for a survival route, only to find it is too late as we have been gradually boiled alive.

As the Federal government continues to pass Draconian legislation denying Americans more and more of our Constitutional Rights, and the Fascist Technocratic Cabal invokes it programmed agenda, more and more obstacles to absolute power and authoritarianism are being overcome, removed or demolished. The U.S. Constitution mandated system of checks and balances embedded within our government’s original framework is essentially impotent, as it has succumbed to the power elites annexation of every American’s freedom and liberty by financing its networked collaborators into all three of our government branches of power.

In the works, our actions monitored daily from the airspace of the “Beacon of Liberty to the World”

Can You Hear Me Calling You?

The Almighty Creator must have inspired these words composed by songwriters Michael Rutherford and Brian Alexander Robertson, as they are quite prophetic. “Silent Running” is quite insightful considering the times in which we live.

Interesting as well is Wikipedia referencing a comment from Rutherford, explaining what the song is saying:

According to Rutherford, the song “is about a guy who’s traveled light-years away, out in space somewhere, and he’s ahead in time. Therefore he knows what’s going to happen to his wife and kids back home, on Earth. And he’s trying to get the message to them to say what’s going to happen, the kind of anarchy, the breakdown of society, to tell them to be prepared.”

The lyrics describe a hostile world where the government or even the church can not be trusted.  If looked at from the perspective of  the Creator speaking, the message shines crystal clear…

Take your children and yourself and hide out in the cellar.
By now the fighting will be close at hand.
Don’t believe the church and state
and everything they tell you.
Believe in me
I’m with the high command.

Can you hear me
can you hear me running?
Can you heal me running
can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me
can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running
can you hear me calling you?

There’s a gun and ammunition just inside the doorway;
Use it only in emergency.
Better you should pray to God
the Father and the Spirit.
Will guide you and protect you from up here.
Can you hear me
can you hear me running? . . .

This next verse I find extremely interesting…

Swear allegiance to what flag? The United Nations?
Don’t even hint that you dissent, but teach your children their heritage and history, because one day they will fight.

With the Occupy Wall Street and recent surge in political participation by our nations’ youth, you can see the pertinence of the lyric. Hopefully it is not too late to reverse the rising  suppression of dissent and we will still be able to petition our government for redress of grievances.

When we had the chance to prevent the tyranny… we did nothing…. Very powerful words and message.

Show allegiance to the flag whatever flag they offer.
Never hint at what you really feel.
Teach the children quietly for someday sons and daughters,
will rise up and fight where we stood still.

Can you hear me
can you hear me running? . . .
