The roots of the pain and suffering that America experienced in the War Between the States (more aptly described as the War of Federal Aggression) rightfully runs deep in America.
It may well explain why it is that society has been not just well restrained, but also politically malleable and open to manipulation by the present political Two Gang system.
While some may find distasteful the reference to the two parties as Gangs who have blighted our Nation and reduced our Freedom to a shadow of an empty promise, it is clear that their mutual target has been our freedom, to give rise to their ever increasing power. The later I find very distasteful and treasonous. Our rediscovery of our Freedom, Power, and Liberty is the solution to the Class Warfare and eventual Civil War that they alone foment.
As for the title of this article, the “They” is the media and government, the “you” is the people like the Continental Congress who have an opportunity to press for an actual change in things for America.
This author has made clear his support for the efforts for a November 2009 Continental Congress. The idea of the Recall Petitions is hoped to be a central theme at this meeting of the elected Delegates from each state.
It is also hoped that the 9-12, Tea Party, and Campaign for Liberty groups will also pick up on this. Reform must come from many directions, and to take hold Freedom and Liberty will have to be the goal, as we can see what strangling centralized regulation has done to America.
There is little doubt that the government (not the media as they will ignore the Continental Congress until the government attacks it publicly) will be seeking to draw this impending gathering in a bad light. I believe that liberal author Michael Blumenthal has already made the rounds on national public radio claiming that the extreme Right and the present Republican Party has it roots in “terrorism” and leaders who endorsed terrorism.
There is little doubt that the government will attempt to call the Congress “Revolutionaries” or that they are trying to start a “Civil War”. This has to be expected, and if the government does not do this then one has to expect the Media to try an paint the Congress as Racists and the like; anything to quash any message that it endeavors to present to THE PEOPLE, just as they did on 9-12 and President Obama told them to stop doing (for it was growing the movement).
Current events have played into the hands of the We The People organization.
By all accounts, the highest number of People in D.C. on 9-12 was per one report 3.6 Million people. (Please note the lack of reports of crime and destruction by the group on 9-12.)
Presently, WorldNetDaily’s effort at pink slipping Congress a threat regarding 2010 elections has reached over 4 Million pink slips from people with $29.95 to spend in sending a message. (Any major media coverage, yet again?)
The numbers support the indication of a present growing trend.
The lack of reaction by those in servant office, and the media, shows that THE PEOPLE and their voice of will is being deliberately ignored and shut out.
It is these people of office and the fourth estate who foment civil unrest, no different from G20 leaders who need to hide behind thousands of armored riot police to protect them from the power of THE PEOPLE.
On the contrary, the Continental Congress, by way of the research provided through the Recall Petitions, has every opportunity to take notice of this following point of fundamental law (power of THE PEOPLE) that appears in almost every original Constitution of the 50 states (except for Alaska, Hawaii, California), and is toned down in some post-‘War of Federal Aggression’ States:
“Government is instituted for the protection, security and benefit of the people; and they have the right to alter or reform the same whenever the public good may require it…”
The above is taken from the Original/Organic Nevada Constitution in Article 1 Section 2.
Yet, the following is what is found later in that Article:
“But the Paramount Allegiance of every citizen is due to the Federal Government in the exercise of all its Constitutional powers as the same have been or may be defined by the Supreme Court of the United States; and no power exists in the people of this or any other State of the Federal Union to dissolve their connection therewith or perform any act tending to impair[,] subvert, or resist the Supreme Authority of the government of the United States. The Constitution of the United States confers full power on the Federal Government to maintain and Perpetuate its existance [existence], and whensoever any portion of the States, or people thereof attempt to secede from the Federal Union, or forcibly resist the Execution of its laws, the Federal Government may, by warrant of the Constitution, employ armed force in compelling obedience to its Authority.”
This similar claim is found in others such as Idaho:
“The state of Idaho is an inseparable part of the American Union, and the Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the land.”
This is a very interesting statement, since the Constitution has 40 negative statements towards the Congress and restricts the States in only a few aspects in their dealing with each other and abroad. Seems reasonable, a restrained Congress would be great, it is the objective.
It appears that the UNALIENABLE RIGHT of THE PEOPLE as previously established in the Declaration of Independence; that THE PEOPLE have the RIGHT and DUTY to dissolve their polity and connections when circumstances of the perversion of the purpose of government requires it; and in other Constitutions of many other states such as New Hampshire and North Carolina:
“…whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government. The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.”
somehow has ceased to exist after 1863.
The post-War of Secession Constitutions make it appear that the government is no longer established by THE PEOPLE as shown by the prior Constitutions and even the writings of Henry Campbell Black in 1895 as shown in my blog on Revolution.
In his Chapter 1 definition 3, Mr. Black states:
“…usually the term "constitutional government" is applied only to those whose fundamental rules or maxims not only locate the sovereign power in individuals or bodies designated or chosen in some prescribed manner, but also define the limits of its exercise, so as to protect individual rights, and shield them against the assumption of arbitrary power.”
So how does one justify and correlate the notion of THE PEOPLE creating a Federal Government to be Supreme over them, despite a Bill of Rights which has been stated by the U.S. Supreme Court that no vote of any legislature or any Court, or any supermajority can ever touch UNALIEANBLE Rights (West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnett)?
It would appear that the scholarly and authoritative Mr. Black and his position overrides the Constitutions of states such as Idaho and Nevada and the false notion of Federal Supremacy and Sovereignty over, above, and beyond reach of the People.
On July 1st, 2nd and 3rd of 1863, at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, over 150 thousand men beset to kill each other over this question.
The words of the final author of Federal Supremacy who brought this land to War against each other, drafted people under Arms even firing Naval guns into New York to quell draft Riots, should be considered. In eulogy for the dead at Gettysburg he wrote:
“…that government by the people, of the people, for the people, would not perish from the eart”
(wow, got that right from memory)It is clear then:
Reform by the State secession does not work.
Reforming two Gangland Political Parties does not work.
and still, perverted votes do not change Rights of individuals nor THE PEOPLE.
That if America is not the nation where THE PEOPLE are the Sovereigns, then Lincoln was in fact the biggest liar and murderer of his Age.
Since History cannot be altered by revisiting it, the only function that the Continental Congress can perform right now is to vindicate the Rights of THE PEOPLE, before the whole world.
There must be hope that Reform can be real without Civil War. Efforts of the purveyors of lies who seek to stymie the Continental Congress and the final delivery of the freedom promised by our founding documents must be confronted in Truth.
The fundamental law as shown by the foundational documents of the communities who created the States and the Federal Government as WE THE PEOPLE, must be consulted and must be upheld for reform to be lawful and capable of reaching peaceful ends for the prosperity and tranquility of THE PEOPLE. (Imagine that!)
The myth and lie of Federal Supremacy must be purged from the American Experiment if the Nation is to have any hope of a perpetuating Union, for the Federal Government was plainly, by its own Constitution, not created for the casual terrorism, despotism, and misery of THE PEOPLE under color of statutory law of the U.S. Congress, but was created for their happiness, tranquility, and PROSPERITY of THE PEOPLE.
If the Continental Congress fails in Educating THE PEOPLE out of the lie, should it fail to take nonviolent action to help THE PEOPLE reassert their 9th Amendment Right to enforce the societal contract, the misery created by the U.S. Congress will definitely foment Public unrest and rightfully so:
“…this right may be said to exist when tyranny or a corrupt and vicious government is intrenched in power, so that it cannot be dislodged by legal means; or when …the evils to be expected from a revolutionary rising are not so great as those which must be endured under the existing order of things;…”
- Henry Campbell Black
The destruction of our Families, Jobs, and now the government Corporations we bailed out (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) casting THE PEOPLE into the streets; these are stories the Media has not covered as caused by the Congress and the prevailing Two Gang system.
Be not deceived anymore America. The issues are just symptoms that they alone have created by their own hand. As the Petitions show, they are the ones who have made War against THE PEOPLE, they are the disease.
The question that remains, can THE PEOPLE be educated to this fact?
