Kerodin.com: He Needed Killin'

Hi folks,

Over at Kerodin.com I have listed a piece of language for an Amendment offered by CA.  Read it and consider.

I am personally in the process of moving offices, so I'll catch up on the email you've been sending over the next few days.  We are leaving our corporate offices (been there almost 6 years) for cheaper digs.  Since we let our employees go, we simply don't need to carry the overhead...and if you know anything about DC area corporate real estate rates, you know we can add a lot of prep every month instead of covering that note.

I'll be online here and there, but don't look for any answers for a few days.

Best,

Read TL's piece.

We do have the power to Impeach, if we redefine what is ...legitimate political discourse... and what are unacceptable interpretations of the Constitution.

But for generations we have allowed others to define the paradigm.  We have not tarred and feathered anyone in many generations.  We have not raised a Ruckus over Constitutional issues since 1860. 

Until we do it, the Status Quo will remain in place.

III: Message to Congress

There is no national candidate who advocates III or Hard Right principles on every issue.

Even Ron Paul fails on 2A issues, unless we grade on a curve.  When given the chance (twice) to advocate for Repeal of all bans and measures that restrict law-abiding citizens from owning legally-obtained firearms  on a 2008 questionnaire, Paul opted in both cases for the more PC answer.

The point is not that we should bash Ron Paul.  Instead, we must understand that on the political field of battle we will have to select the least evil candidate.  All things considered, we could do much worse than Ron Paul in the Oval Office...and we will probably do exactly that.

One thing I hope to accomplish when we send our book to Members of Congress is to give Congressman Paul and maybe a few others the room to move Right on their 2A positions. 

What I would prefer is that we find at least one III candidate among us who will step forward and run for the House.  Just one, with the courage to advocate our principles, without PC positions designed to appeal to the broadest base. 

If you are out there, even if you live in a District that is guaranteed to go Blue, I hope you will step forward and accept the burden to run on the III Platform.  You'll be eaten alive by the press and the Establishment.  They will come at you from everywhere, with every weapon they can find.  You'll lose and you will have to run your entire campaign on a shoestring budget, because aside from the folks who visit our few III blogs, you won't get many donations.

It won't be pretty.

But it would be awfully damned patriotic.

Denninger: How to destabilize a region

Here is the ultimate truth, as stated by KD:  Even in a monstrously-repressive regime such as Egypt, the fact remains that when the people have had enough, the government is fooked.

The average American has a long way to go before he is in the position of the average Egyptian.  That's the biggest problem facing Patriots.  Americans are the most comfortable slaves in history.

Egyptian Gov't Gives Internet Lesson to American Patriots


Shutting down the internet and digital comm is far too easy.

Egypt did it.

FedGov can and will, too.  I grow more convinced every day that in a Ruckus there will be very, very few Warriors with the spine and ideological courage to abandon the velvet-covered chains and step to our Masters.

No important industry will deny Government demands, and if they do, they are easily taken over with a few platoons and a team of technicians.

Have you considered the logistics of a Ruckus with no comm, no electricity, no running water, no fuel at gas stations...

All of these basics are easy for Government to interrupt...and just as easy for FreeFor.

III: Message to Congress

What do you think about this opening:


This book is intended to serve as notice that many Americans have become frustrated, angry and resentful that our elected officials have permitted and facilitated the deliberate and active denial of our innate Rights and Liberty.
For generations our professional Political Class has manipulated and abused Citizens through the improper use of Government at all levels.   The concise and well-articulated limits of the enumerated powers of Congress as set forth in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution have been ignored by Politicians of both major parties.  The common practice of intentionally abusing the Necessary & Proper Clause and the Interstate Commerce Clause are criminal acts deserving of impeachment, and in some cases, no less than trial for Treason.
As a result of perpetual abuse of our system of Government, the republic today is near collapse.  Our economy is broken.  Our political process is manipulated.  Our national pride has been replaced by guilt, imposed upon us by self-serving politicians.
Our politics are filled with enemies of Liberty.
The policies imposed upon the republic from Left and Establishment politicians are anti-American and violate the letter and intent of our Founding Principles.  The actions of such politicians are criminal.
This book is notice to our Political Class that our patience is nearly exhausted.  We demand that our innate Liberties be restored and respected by our politicians, or we will be forced to the remedy undertaken by our Founders.
We will no longer permit this country to be ruined by the selfish or the enemies of Liberty.

Faith...

Our Government, like our paper dollar, survives only so long as We the People have faith.

The moment that you conclude that the dollars given to you for fixing a leaky pipe for a customer will not be accepted by the baker for a loaf of bread, you will stop accepting paper dollars.

It is that simple.

The legitimacy and existence of our Government is the same.

Birthers...


I am curiously watching the growing noise from the Left for the Presidents birth certificate. 

In politics, nothing is ever as it seems.  There are always undercurrents and nuances.

Two considerations: Drudge reports that 10 States are in the process of legislating Proof of Citizenship laws, with a combined Electoral value of 107.  That's a big deal, if Obama can't prove Citizenship.  If only one state, like Arizona, passed the legislation, he could opt-out of their ballot process "on principle" and it wouldn't matter to his campaign.  Afterall, Arizona is only worth 10, and he won without them in 2008.  But 107 across 10 States is a problem.

Second consideration: Could the D's who are making noise now, many of whom are hardcore Left, know there is an issue with the birth certificate and decided that Obama has let them down, and they are laying the ground to throw him under the bus?

Now that would be a popcorn & soda event!

Whatever the reasoning, it is becoming interesting.

Sam

New Gun Control Push?


Much is being made about this Newsweek article about Obama making a play for gun control.

Breathe.  Think forward, not in the moment.

Ask yourself why the current Administration would choose to come hard for guns now?  He has not made a single move on guns for 2 years.  It is a political loser and the entire Left knows it. It has been for years.  He is trying to channel Reagan!  He is trying everything to make it look like he is moving Right.  For a man who wants and needs the political Middle in 2 years, Gun Control is a wedge issue that will alienate the very people he needs.

So, what is the political value of making noise on guns now?

It is a chit to trade for what he really wants, which is for the Right to ease off of his Healthcare and settle for modifications rather than repeal or de-fund.

The rabid Left will make noise for him and be his Useful Idiots, but he will trade Gun Control in a hot second for a little breathing room on Healthcare.

What will be even more fascinating to watch will be the folks who have threatened all-out war in the face of the next Gun Control law.  Watch how quickly they will move their own line, once again...

That is the ultimate reason the Establishment has no respect for us.  Lots of talk, no action.  Until we begin rational rhetoric that we back-up, we will forever have precisely the political clout we deserve.

Nullification...

While any single State, even a small collection of weak States, would be easily handled by FedGov if they tried to employ nullification, here is the question for the III:  If Wyoming or Montana, or any other State declared nullification and found themselves facing FedGov boots on the ground, would that be a line in the sand that would have you gear up and cause a rear-action ruckus?

Declaratory and Restrictive...


I have seen several on the Left calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment in response to Arizona.

Of course, the first ten amendments are immune to the Amendment process.

What most people were never taught, and our Masters never want you to learn, is that the Bill of Rights has a preamble.  The important phrase that makes repeal of the first 10 amendments impossible is in this paragraph: THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution

Declaratory and Restrictive are exactly that: They are Declarations of Restrictions upon the Government.

If the Government may not infringe 2A, how can it be repealed?  If Government did not grant permission to bear arms, or speak freely, how can it take them away?

Article V is, therefore, explicitly not available to Government as regards the Bill of Rights, for if Government may not infringe, how can the State Legislatures even vote on 1A - 10A?

The Bill of Rights is sacred, and was deliberately placed beyond the reach of Government to meddle.

Of course, they do meddle, to the point that many of us feel the Right of Revolution is again near.  But that is another issue.  The simple reality is that if one reads the preamble to the Bill of Rights, it is obvious that the Article V process for modifying/repealing the Bill of Rights simply does not obtain.

So-called Constitutional experts will disagree, and for them I refer you to Article III, Section III: Treason.

III to Congress...



OK, folks: Below is the last iteration of the III 2012 Platform.

Read through it.  Think of ways to improve it.   

We need to make the book as powerful and laser-focused as possible, so it may be better to cut some of the items below.  Maybe we should stick to 1A, 2A, 4A, and economic issues?  Though a case can be made that our first interaction with the folks on Capitol Hill should be comprehensive.

Please add your thoughts in the comments, or if you'd prefer to remain a bit more Grey Man, email me your thoughts.

2012 III Political Platform v2.0

A) Constitutional Authority:  We believe that the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights, as amended, say what they mean and mean what they say.  The Commerce Clause and the General Welfare Clause are not license for Congress to violate or exceed a single enumerated power described in Article I, Section 8 or elsewhere.  We demand that no Congressman shall cast any vote on any legislation without obvious and explicitly stated Constitutional Authority. 

B) Second Amendment: ...shall not be infringed... says what it means and means what it says. All Federal statutes and regulations which, when read in accordance to the plain meaning of their contents, infringe directly or indirectly on any Constitutional Right shall be immediately repealed.

C) Fourth Amendment: The plain language of the Fourth Amendment shall be restored to original intent.  Such violations including TSA Scanners and Pat-Downs, Stop & Frisk procedures will end immediately.  Searches of a Citizen, his papers or effects shall only be permissible upon signed warrant from a Judge.  The PATRIOT Act shall be immediately repealed.

D) States Rights: We fully support the intent of the Founders and Framers, and to this end shall support the repeal of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments.

E) Scope of Federal Government: We support legislation to de-fund and disband every extra-Constitutional Department and Agency within the Federal Government within one year, including but not limited to the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, the Department of Commerce, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Health and Human Service, the Department of Labor, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Transportation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Transportation Security Administration.  All other Federal Departments and Agencies shall submit a written justification for continued operations to the appropriate House and Senate Committees within six months of the effective date of the Legislation.

F) By separate Legislation we support an end to every extra-Constitutional policy and program and law currently in effect.

G) Impeachment: We strongly support and actively seek Impeachment proceedings for Treason against politicians, bureaucrats, and judges who are believed to have violated their oath of office.

H) Entitlement Programs: The proper place for Entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and Federally sponsored healthcare is in the respective States, and are prohibited to the Federal Government.  We support legislation to abolish all Federal transfer payment programs and every American shall receive a refund of all money paid into these programs, including interest calculated at fair market rates had the Citizen been permitted to save this money in private interest earning accounts. 

I) Military Deployment: We support legislation that all US Military bases around the world on foreign soil shall be closed within one year, and all American troops brought home.  (Any threat that may have once been posed to America from Iraq or Afghanistan has now been eliminated, and all US troops should return to the safety of the US.)

J) Defense: The Navy has the primary responsibility for American Force Projection around the world, and the Navy and Air Force shall jointly and immediately begin to establish American supremacy in space from Earth's atmosphere to the far side of the moon. (Space is the High Ground.  Until the Nature of Man is fundamentally altered, there will be a militarily dominant Tribe on the planet - I contend that Tribe must be our own.)

K) Guantanamo Bay: It is inappropriate for the United States of America to hold prisoners without judicial resolution.  Those currently held by the American Government for Terrorism related activity shall be tried by a Military tribunal, and executed or released to their home country upon final judgment of that proceeding.

L) Economy: America should immediately set course to engage the markets of the world on a genuine Free Trade footing.  With the goal of eliminating all Federal Government interference in Global markets within one year, a Presidential (or Congressional, if the President fails to act) Committee shall be established to deliver to the President and Congress within six months of formation a report on how to achieve that objective.

M) The Fed: We support legislation for a complete and public audit of all operations and holdings of the Federal Reserve System, with joint hearings to effect the abolition of the Federal Reserve System to be commenced within ninety days of said audit.

N) Energy: Energy is a strategic aspect of our economic and national security.  Dependence upon foreign sources of oil are unacceptable, and most alternative energy sources are insufficient to achieve national security goals in a timely manner.  Federal restrictions on the construction of Nuclear Power facilities must be immediately removed.

We support legislation to compel the US Navy, within one year, to commence construction on 100 Nuclear generation facilities located on Military facilities within the continental United States.  All facilities and the commencement of commercial power generation shall be completed within four years of the effective date of legislation.  Transfer of Generation Facilities from the Navy to appropriate private companies shall occur within two years of coming online.

Suggestions?

War on Po Po?


This story quotes a guy from the Police Union who says that cops feel as if there is a targeted War on Cops underway.  Yet, every incident in the story that results in Cops getting hurt is a result of the police initiating contact.  Except one - the guy who walked into the Cop Shop in Detroit and unloaded.

There may be a growing intolerance to being screwed with in the general public - guys who are tired of Po Po sticking their noses where they don't belong.  So, instead of answering the nice Officer's questions and taking the ticket/beating/arrest, some folks are snapping off rounds instead.

But, a War on Cops?  The evidence does not support this claim, which will obviously be used in future negotiations for more benefits for union members.

If it were a genuine War on Cops, it would be the Citizens initiating contact.

Happy Pills

 
The Obama administration has become so concerned about the slowing pace of new drugs coming out of the pharmaceutical industry that officials have decided to start a billion-dollar government drug development center to help create medicines.


Need more evidence that this Administration is hurtling us toward Socialism?


Why do you think drug manufacturers have slowed their roll?  It's because of Government interference with their market.  Government interference takes at least 2 forms regarding drug companies: First is direct regulatory interjection.  Second is the leverage that Government permits Insurance Companies to manipulate and pressure companies for pricing.


The American healthcare system needs two things to happen: Break the Monopoly and power of the Insurance Companies, to permit genuine competition.  Second, get Government out of the way.


The costs of medical care will drop through the basement, research will skyrocket again, and Americans will enjoy their birthright.

Practical Considerations...


I wrote this the other day at Arctic Patriot's place.  It doesn't deserve a full column, but full dissemination is appropriate.

Of the big gun makers in the world, most live and die by the Government Contract. Big Uncle buys a lot, LEO buys a lot, foreign friendly Governments buy a lot, and every Tyrant on the planet buys Glock, Colt, Beretta, Walther, Browning, Kalishnikov, et al.

The smaller companies simply have no pull in the industry. Sad to say, but if Big Uncle told the big firearms makers in America to stop selling to American Civilians or lose their US contracts and export licenses, they'd do it.

In any full-blown Ruckus, I hope our North East (and elsewhere) Patriots understand how important those factories are, to both sides. I hope every Patriot has done his research and learned basic metalsmithing for DIY.

Do with these thoughts what you will.

Unleash the Power...


Set aside the (quite proper) arguments that the Federal Government should not lay claim to the land of the States for a moment.

I was unexpectedly on the highway Friday.  Rather than a day on Capitol Hill as scheduled, I ended up in Delaware.  I am always freshly reminded during road trips of the vast open spaces that remain in our great nation.

Consider if the Federal Government were to sell off tracts of land.  What if they were to liquidate and permit families to have acres in return for the money owed for Entitlement programs.  Move some people off the Entitlement roles as a means of reducing Entitlement spending with the goal of ending Entitlements completely, in return give these folks land.  How many families would jump at a chance for modern Homesteading?

Would you take five acres of remote land and make a go of it?  Green energy, composting toilets, satellite communications, all make living off the grid far more comfortable and realistic than in our frontier days.  Think of the boon to the economy, as well diggers and builders and all of the related industries are contracted to help new landowners make their little pieces of America habitable. 

Think of the pressure that would be reduced on metropolitan governments as the populations reduce with a proportional decrease in services required.  Think of the cash infusion (or savings, depending upon the structure of the deal) for the Federal Government.

Think of the empowerment of those families who will now have a stake in the republic as they had not before.  Think of the value to the people who will learn once again the importance and self respect afforded by self-sufficiency.

There are so many ways to unleash the power of the American people, if only we change our politics.

...by any means necessary.

Natural Law & State Malevolence


I subscribe heavily to the concept of Natural Law.  I have not found a single definition with which I agree completely, but the premise works for me.

When Government imposes Law that is immoral, Citizens are placed in jeopardy.  If we do the right thing, we may be punished.  It is dangerous to be right when the Government is wrong, as has been said.

Consider: I have a neighbor whose family is having it financially rougher than am I.  He is a blue collar guy, adept at most things in the remodeling realm.  If I offer the man $1,000 to re-tile my bathroom, the State of Maryland asserts the power to fine and arrest the man, because he is not licensed to tile bathrooms.  I'm not certain, but I'd bet they assert the power to somehow punish me in the transaction, as well.

How can any member of the Political Class justify this circumstance?  They use the standard: We license contractors to ensure consumer safety argument.

To my mind, such licensing is an absolute violation of Natural Law and the free will of two people to enter into a contract.  It also raises the cost of tiling my bathroom, if I must limit my options to State Approved contractors. 

Try to operate a Charity in Maryland, collecting food from one group of people and delivering to another group, whether a food bank or directly to people whom you know need a little extra in the cupboard, the State of Maryland will come at you hard for not receiving their blessings (and paying their fees) to operate a Charity.

The list is long of the actions you may not do in Maryland, and we are not alone in the republic.

Is this not the ideal definition of a Government that is harmful to the People and justifiably changed?

Congress & the Political Class: Guilty


Arctic Patriot found this gem below and posted about it recently.

Consider how this law can be used against those who would be our Masters, in our elected offices and in our neighborhoods.  Is not Sarah Brady violating § 241 with every dollar raised to support gun control?  Is not every law put forth by the McCarthy's of the Congress a violation of § 242?

Is there not a Right attorney who could at least make a run at it?

This law is as clearly written as our Declaration and Constitution - rather rare if you ask me about any aspect of the US Code.  As I read it, in plain English, every single member of the Left and Establishment in our Political Class is Guilty.  Period.

If our Government refuses to prosecute and enforce the law, is there any meaning left in the US Code?

Does not their failure to prosecute establish the Right of Revolution, for if we can not expect equal application of and protection under the Law, we have no legitimate Government.

Think about it.


UNITED STATES CODE
TITLE 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
PART I - CRIMES

Time for a new Vigilance Committee


American's have recourse that falls between the voting booth and full-scale revolution. 

But, it takes Patriots who do more than talk.

Americans once took care of their problems when government could not, or would not, police their own.

Can you say: Vigilante?

Regulators: North Carolina's colonial court met in Hillsborough. In 1768, the Regulators entered Hillsborough, broke up the court, and dragged those they saw as corrupt officials through the streets. The mob attempted to have the judge try the cases that were pending against several regulator leaders, including Husband. The presiding judge (Richard Henderson) quickly adjourned the court until the next morning to avoid being forced to make a ruling in the presence of an angry mob of regulators, and escaped in the night. The regulators rioted, destroying public and private property alike. Fanning was among the lawyers beaten, found after taking refuge in a shop neighboring the courthouse. According to judge Richard Henderson, Fanning's beating was so severe that “one of his eyes was almost beaten out.” The courthouse was systematically and symbolically vandalized. Human waste was placed on the judges seat, and the body of a long deceased slave was placed upon the lawyers bar. The mob continued to destroy shops and property in the town, and ultimately brought their destruction to Fanning's personal residence. After destroying all of the furniture and drinking all of his alcohol, the entire house was picked apart. Henderson's barn, along with his stables and home were also burned to the ground. They cracked the church bell of the Church of England, but stopped short of looting the church further due to their religious beliefs.

Kerodin.com: Shift Your Paradigm


Today at Kerodin.com we explore shifting our paradigms, the rules imposed upon us by others that we accept as immutable.

Consider: Why has no Patriot sent draft language of a Bill to their Tea Party Congressmen that would make it a crime in America to infringe 2A?  If McCarthy can simply write words on paper that will turn many millions of Americans into criminals, why are we playing defense instead of playing offense and making her actions a matter of debate on the floor of the House, with imprisonment as a potential outcome?

Try to infringe 2A, go to jail.  ATF will hunt YOU, rather than Olofoson.

Life is but a Collection of Moments




Every once in a while my lovely bride and I treat ourselves to our favorite dinner.  Living in Washington DC has many perks, and the number of authentic restaurants in our town that cook foods from around the world are probably only rivaled by New York and maybe Los Angeles.

Lamb Pasanda, served on a bed of rice with a side order of fresh naan bread - my friends, it is crack.  It is my favorite meal.  A great Rib Eye cooked on my grill comes close, and Maryland Blue Crabs round out the top three...

You owe it to your Significant Other to find a good India restaurant and order Lamb Pasanda.  If they do it right, you are in for a treat.  It should hit only 1-2 on the spice scale, so if you want a spicey dish, this isn't it.  But it is full of flavors that I never dreamed should be in a single dish, and textures that work together like a well-done song.

Oh - I need a political hook.

OK - Olbermann is out at MSNBC - Now Celebrate!

You fall into one of these categories.  You do not have to be a martial artist, or a master gunfighter.

What would it take?

If you were in your car and heard Rush sound a call to arms, would you go home for your Go Bag and begin the fight?

Perhaps not Rush, what about Sarah?  Or Beck?  Ron Paul?  Judge Napolitano?

Is there anyone on the national political scene who could send up the balloon and you would follow?  No more waiting, no hesitating to see if Patriots go to work in other cities.  No pause to consider the odds against you as you grab your kit and set about the business of securing your AO.  Would you try to be the first Patriot to fire the next shot heard around the world?

Taking Names


Patriots, are you taking names?

Every threat that China poses to our republic is possible only because we have handed them the means.

Without our assistance, China would still be third world, unable to harm a single American.

Our Political Class, and in particular the Leftists among us, idolize the Chinese system.  They want to impose the Chinese system on us all, for it is more efficient than our innately problematic republic. 

Every American who has voted for Democrats or Establishment Republicans is a traitor, is helping set the chains upon your children, and they are not shunned or ostracized, much less put on trial.  One day, your child will work for or be killed by the whims of a Chinese dictator.

And we simply shake our heads as this tyrant is revered in the very House once occupied by Jefferson.

For those few who have the mettle to fight, it should be obvious that you will die alone as you rage against the machine.  I drove by the Capitol this afternoon.  There was a small crowd of protesters...against the repeal of Obamacare.

I see no real resistance to our course, indeed, there is an eagerness that offends.

For the very few Patriots who I know have the mettle to fight for the republic, I wonder if you have days when you simply don't see any point.  When you see Hu eating in a room that most Americans will never be invited to enter, do you consider just walking away and letting it happen?  The III is nothing but a label, an ideal, for it is certainly not a percentage of Americans who will fight, or even raise their voice when Communists are in the White House. 

I think Chamberlain can at least be comforted by the fact that he was merely stupid.  Our Chamberlains are complicit.

LEO wants to take the mans guns for discussing violence as part of our political discourse.

“1 down and 534 to go” was his comment.

In his blog Corcoran writes, “It is absolutely, absolutely unacceptable to shoot indiscriminately. Target only politicians and their staff and leave regular citizens alone.”

In the comments below the article, a brilliant idiot named Irish67 added to the debate:  I dont care how disenfrachised someone is with the government, you can NOT advocate violence. Ever. Period.

That position is, of course, absurd.

Ask Messer's Jefferson, Henry, Adams...

I'll take my political lessons from these guys, not some modern day coward who shames the word Patriot.

Sarah


Just watched Chris Mathews opening segment, it was a bash Sarah festival.

Of the potential candidates who actually have a chance, I think she is the most Liberty minded.  Not perfect, but more like us than any of the others.

But here is my true hope:  I want Sarah to be President for one reason: I want to watch heads explode on the Left when she is elected.  I have not seen any potential player torque them off with such contempt and blind hatred, and I am including Ronald Reagan.  The Gipper took abuse, but not the same savage hatred Sarah gets.

I don't care if she plays with Trig every day in the Oval Office and never does one bit of Presidential business, just watching the Left melt down over a President Palin would be very satisfying for me.

A Question for our Lawyers...


What would it take to try something very aggressive, using our courts?

Today, the Left will sue or otherwise use the courts to attack Patriots and Liberty positions.

What legal criteria would need to be met to, say, sue SPLC or a Citizen such as Sarah Brady for anti-American behavior, or sedition, or to force a politician, say Ms. McCarthy, to defend that she did not break her oath of office in bringing legislation to the floor with the intent of infringing our Liberties?

Remember how they sued Gun Manufacturers? 

There must be some way we can use the legal system the same way they use it - even if we do not win, can we take the fight to them and force them to defend themselves, or at least spend their money on lawyers to have cases thrown out of court? 

Could 1,000 III Patriots file claims in local small claims courts or District Courts across the country against McCarthy, or against business entities, PAC's, 527's that advocate infringements?  In Maryland one does not need a lawyer to sue up to (I think) $15,000 - which means low fees on our end and force the bad guys to defend 1,000 brush fires...does this have any potential?

Kerodin.com: Weight of the Chains

Every infringement upon your Liberty is imposed by men and women who demand that they may be your Master.  They use the force of Law and Government to impose their will in all matters, from the car you may drive to the length of grass you may keep in your yard, to the unconscionable and preposterous claim that they are entitled to a portion of every fruit that comes from your labor.

They are tyrants, and Traitors.

If we decide to simply live our lives and die without changing what exists today, then you are ensuring that your children, one day, will meet men and women from Government bearing arms and even heavier chains.

If we decide as a nation to kill or imprison every tyrannical Traitor among us, we will breathe the fresh air of Liberty Mister Jefferson understood.

If we do not find the mettle to kill or imprison tyrants and traitors, we deserve the chains upon us.

Vote with your feet


How many of you folks have voted with your feet?  Have you moved the family to a State with a better environment for your beliefs?

My income is directly tied to being physically in the DC area, and I live in the deep, dark blue hole of the Maryland 8th.  I do have the option of moving to Northern Virginia, which is another universe in political terms, though Northern Virginia is trending hard to the Left because of the Political Class influence.  (I lived there when I was single)  I may move back to Virginia in the near future and leave the People's Republic of Maryland to fester with themselves.

When I am able to retire, we are Alaska bound.  The politics could be harder, but the solitude, hunting, fishing are singing a siren song.

What about you?

I'd vote for Obama, if...


...at the State Dinner he arrested this garbage for crimes against Humanity, and personally put the cuffs on him.

OK, I still wouldn't vote for the guy, but we won't tell him that until election day.

Seriously: The way our Political Class yields to the Communists of China and elsewhere is not only Treason against our republic, it is truly a crime against Humanity.  I wonder if Communism or Religion has been responsible for more deaths?

Four R's to Restoration (Click here to read the column)

Resist: Arctic Patriot says it best.  Find diverse, creative, clever ways to resist the intent of Government to own you.  Stick a thumb in their eye every chance you get while remaining within the letter of the law.  Be noisy.  Get in their grill.  Offend them.  Hurt their feelings.  Frighten  them.  Let them know you are ready to stomp the snot out of them if you must.  Let them know that you will leave hearth and home and go hunting to ensure that your children are never threatened by a man from Government with a gun.

How the Left is Shaping Gun Control...


We have C-Span radio here, and when I am forced out into the world on a Sunday, I get to listen to all of the Sunday news shows back-to-back on C-Span.

Candy Crowley tipped their hand with her line-up today.  Watch for the Left to make a probing run at fresh Gun Control legislation using the Mental Health angle.

They'll ask for nasty semi-autos and extended mags to be banned, but they'll settle for easing the rules for putting people on the Prohibited Persons lists, for surely rhetoric that calls for violence is a mental illness, and such people can not be trusted because of their impairment...

Count on it.

The natural order of Man is to be ruled.

America is the exception to the rule, and we are under more pressure today than even the King brought to bear.

Draw a circle around your feet and bring those you love into the circle.  Make them safe and free, by any means necessary.  If we all do our most instinctive duty, which it to take care of our own, eventually these circles of freedom and liberty will bump up against one another.

Plant your flag of Liberty and defend it.

Genuine tyrants will never choose to sit on their sofa and leave you alone.  Their useful idiots are another matter - they don't have the same drive as the true tyrant.

True Tyrants understand only force.  You will end up having to kill a few if you intend to be free.

No feeding the hungry without a permit...

One more example of how this nation is being intentionally ruined: Story is here.

When Government prohibits one Citizen from giving food to a hungry Citizen, Government is immoral, corrupt, and not fit to exist.

Any Citizen who yields in his charity because Government says he may not have a permit exemplifies why so many Americans will get on the buses and train cars to the ovens...

Lincoln Chafee


Chafee said the solution to the vitriolic rhetoric...is for people to stop paying for it, including not buying books from people who use such language.

Despite his apparant high-minded stance against rhetoric, the mental midget called Sarah a "cocky whacko".

The Governor of Rhode Island is another of those who would be our Master.  Ann Coulter famously quipped in 2006 that They shot the wrong Lincoln.

The Governor has tasked his Lt. Governor with structuring the RI Healthcare system: [to] coordinate changes to the state’s healthcare system in accordance with federal mandates; help maximize the opportunities for federal funding to aid in implementing those mandates;

Another Politician conditioning the people of his State to suckle the teat of Nanny.

I would contend that the advertisers of talk radio will not pull their support of Rush & Company.  In fact, they'd pay more because the folks tuning into Right Radio want to hear the "vitrioloc rhetoric" and crave for more.

How about if folks stop buying RI Bonds everytime this guy advocates the folks in Rhode Island are entitled to the income of folks from other states, confiscated by the guns of the Federal Government?

How about if, after the Ruckus, we make every registered D in the republic sign a Loyalty Oath lest they be shipped over the northern or southern border of the country.  Why wait until the Ruckus?

Mourn for Arizona? Not!

Today's column at Kerodin.com has been called harsh.

I call it restrained.

It is here...

Second Amendment

Consider: 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.

Many of us on the Hard Right understand that Government will never stop denying Liberties to We the People as recognized in our Founding Documents.  To live in a state of Liberty, each American will have to take the decision to defy laws of the State that contradict our understanding of our unalienable Rights.

As regards the Second Amendment: If one takes the decision to be armed in contravention to the laws of your jurisdiction, and you carry in the course of your daily life, what do you do if challenged by LEO who notices your rig at the convenience store?  What do you do if you are carrying in your briefcase on the way to work and one of the DHS/TSA/LEO Teams selects you for a random check of your briefcase or backpack?

What do you do?  Do you surrender to LEO and endure the Court system?  Do you draw and engage?  If you draw and engage and prevail, what about the cameras and fallout if your identity becomes known for follow-up by LEO?

What do you do?

Or, do you simply avoid the potential ruckus by remaining disarmed?
