The Downside of America’s New Spirit of Civil Disobedience

Dave Hodges

October 10, 2013

The Common Sense Show

The spirit of civil disobedience is being resurrected in the former land of apathy and acquiescence. People from every walk of life are saying “No” to their out of control federal government with increasing vehemence. But as you will see, it is not all a bed of roses. There is a price to pay for our new spirit of civil disobedience.

Ted Nugent Can Carry the Tune of Liberty

Legendary rocker Ted Nugent recently told the Associated Press thatThe government is so out of control. It is so bloated and infested with fraud and deceit and corruption and abuse of power…   “The American government today will go down and the American people, it breaks my heart to say… will go down as the dumbest, most unappreciative society in the history of humankind.”  Nugent’s commentary is sad, but much more true than not. However, the worm is beginning to turn and even Nugent might be surprised at the rising tide of civil disobedience in the USA.

The Grand Canyon Shutdown

The Grand Canyon National Park has been closed for over a week now due to the government shutdown. Locals, whose livelihoods depend on the revenue generated from the National Park, have had enough and are speaking out through organized protest.

The Vets Are the First and Last Line of Defense Against Tyranny

Chris Cox, the man pictured above, who is pushing a lawnmower, told CBS’ DC affiliate that his actions weren’t politically motivated. Instead his actions are a symbol of respect for the veterans who are set to converge in the nation’s capital this upcoming weekend for the Million Vet March.

Stewart Rhodes, the founder and director of Oathkeepers, has thrown his organization into the controversy in a very conspicuous manner as Oathkeepers recently issued a statement which encouraged all veterans to go to Washington DC and support the WWII veterans against the tyrannical enforcement of the government’s shutdown of the war memorials. Below, is an except of Rhodes’ call to action.

“Calling all Oath Keepers (and any other veterans) to back up our World War II veterans at the Washington DC area memorials, such as the World War II memorial, the Iwo Jima memorial, Arlington Cemetary, the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial, and anywhere else that that the Honor Flights go. Go there and put yourselves under the command of the WWII vets. If they want the barricades down, they should come down, come hell or high water. No WWII vet should be denied access to the Iwo Jima memorial, the WWII memorial, or to any other memorial they want to visit. For many of them, on those Honor Flights, this will be THEIR LAST TRIP to go and pay their respects to their brothers who did not make it back. It is intolerable to let Obama block their access for his petty partisan manipulations over the govt “shutdown…”   

Hey NSA, “We Can’t Hide From You, but You Can’t Hide From Us”

The following people belong to a group called the “Restore the Fourth”.  The organization is protesting the NSA spy facility in Utah.

Restore The Fourth-Utah is also responsible for picking up litter on the 2-mile stretch of Redwood Road that includes the main entrance to the Utah Data Center and Camp Williams, where most of the spying takes place. they adopted the road in order to protest the NSA facility and their egregious violations of the Fourth Amendment.

Look at the faces in the crowd. The new found spirit of American civil disobedience has crossed from special interest groups like veterans to include average, everyday citizens. What we see below is a significant development in terms of average citizens standing up to the tyrannical federal government.

The Trucker Strike

U.S. News & World Report spoke with Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker who is handling the logistics for the three-day protest which is to begin on the morning of October 11. According to Conlon and others participating, truckers will clog the inner loop of the Beltway and circle I-495 at the 55mph speed limit “to seek the arrest of congressmen for allegedly disregarding the Constitution.”

It Is Too Early to Celebrate

On one hand, it is exciting that Americans across the entire spectrum are beginning to speak with a unified voice. However, do you really think that the globalists, through their minions like Obama, are just going to sit back and allow the “people”, the “useless eaters”,  people like you and me, take back our country? Marijuana is now legal in Colorado and Washington and one would have to be high, or delusional, to believe that the central bankers are going to give us back our country without a bloodbath. In fact, they (the central bankers and their minions) have been preparing for this day for a long time!

What most Americans don’t realize is that you are already living in a police state and as a result, your nation has already been conquered. We were conquered when we allowed the bailouts to go through. We were conquered when we let Obamacare pass. We were conquered when the statistics show us that, despite only having 5% of the world’s population, we have 25% of the world’s prison population. You were conquered when you allowed the NDAA and Executive Order 13603 to be passed.

As I have repeatedly pointed out, we have entered into Stage 2, civil disobedience, on the path to revolution. It will not be the American people who take this conflict to and all-out Stage 3 Revolution, it will be the central bankers as they will see this as a possibility to stamp out all opposition to the New World Order.

Has the light come on yet? DHS purchases 2.3 billion rounds of ammunition to go with their 2700 armored personnel carriers. Every federal agency is arming to the teeth. Wake up America, your life will soon change. Remember the sequence that I have been speaking about for a year; First there will be false flag attacks, financial collapse, martial law followed by WWIII. You are entering the hard core martial law period. How can I be so sure, because this is what happens in every country, in every situation like ours. The best predictor of the future is past.

And please spare me the testosterone inspired hubris that we will have a person with gun behind every blade of grass. That is a joke, we are a soft country. The only hope for the people of this country lies in the fact that the military might revolt, but that is a long shot because Obama has rid the military of any leader who he perceives as a “pro-constitutionalist, protect the American people” kind of soldier. As a result the sell-out bureaucrats are running the Pentagon.

What will this martial law crackdown look like? That is an easy question to answer because, this too, has happened before and the pieces for our subjugation have already been put in place. More on this in the next article. I will leave you with one clue. Brzezinski recently said, “It is easier today to kill a million, rather than try to control a million.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

    Very simple. The sheeple must understand they ARE going to die if they don’t fight back. You have to “own” death. Get right with Jesus, then watch : High Plains Drifter. Do you want to be like the town of panzys in that movie ? 3 LOSERS ride into town and if even 1/2 the town fought them they’d have been killed in minutes. But what did they do ? Watch the movie. America’s either going to kick ass or wish they had after being disarmed and beaten and killed in some camp.

    Watch : From Paris With Love, with John Travolta. You men need to find that spirit in you when the time comes …. or it’s over. WHEN it goes down … 1 % of THEM will be coming after 99 % of you. Picture 990 people running like cowards from just 10 punks. THAT’S WHAT YOU WOOS’S WILL LOOK LIKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now man up for crying out loud !!!

    Obama and his minions and handlers are laughing at Americans. In fact, tha passivity by Americans only emboldens them. For years they have step on Americans like a shoe on a fly and other than a few small protest like Waco, Ruby Ridge, and some individual cases, American were to intoxicated with the matrix coolaid to notice they already took the country. The laws are in place here in USSA,to make the Gulag of Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany look pale in comparison.They are quickly implementing the security grid and arming the DHS, TSA, Police and Army for the ruthless crackdown. The velvet glove of soft Tyranny is rapidly coming off and the Iron fist will soon manifest itself.
    Obama is trying to provoke a crisis (government shutdown, Syria, etc) to provoke the American people. If that does not work, as the author states, a false flag(s) will be taking. The Elite know they have to move fast because this financial system can not be held up much longer.

    I respectfully disagree with you re: “please spare me the testosterone inspired hubris that we will have a person with gun behind every blade of grass.” We are NOT a soft country; the Japanese said the same thing about the WWII generation. Why are you and others so quick to judge this generation? Aren’t they the ones who have fought the “War on Terror” for over a decade? There are 300 million Americans. If just 1%….3 million….stand up…there is no way this tyranny will succeed. I went to Iraq in 2004 with the Army…I did not like George Bush Jr. and had serious doubts about the Iraq invasion but I followed orders because I still believed the official 9/11 story, etc.. Now I am awake. The last thing I want is to fire a shot in anger and I will do everything short of that to save our Constitutional Republic. But if the day comes when they come to haul me off to a FEMA camp well then I will defend myself as I would against any criminal. That is not hubris. That is a realization that there is no other alternative.

    One thought. Maybe there should be a mass protest and arrest in DC. What I mean is, the truckers say they will do their thing. Why not organize multitudes of different organizations to one specific day or weekend…then take back DC with force. Go in and arrest these people. Though, you would not be able to say what you will do, as they would know it’s coming. obama would cowar’ away somehwere as with all the rest of the trash. There needs to be 2 million people to converge on DC and take back our country. That’s all there is to it. Protest will do nothing, as they do what they like in DC anyways.

    We were conquered when we let the godless revolutionaries remove school prayer from the fabric that held America together in 1962.
    The USA by it’s many subsequent evil and immoral acts here and across the globe has made itself an enemy of God and the only thing that remains for us is to chip in and buy a headstone for the reprobate corpse,the empire that forgot God.
    The pride that drives the rebels against the other rebels is the bloody judgment God is sending on this arrogant,wicked land which forgot who made us great.
    Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this,
    In whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind? …
    He leads princes[b] away plundered, and overthrows the mighty.
    He deprives the trusted ones of speech, and takes away the discernment of the elders.
    He pours contempt on princes, and disarms the mighty.
    He uncovers deep things out of darkness, and brings the shadow of death to light.
    He makes nations great, and destroys them…
    Job 12
    Repent and fear God,you just might survive what he is sending

    “The only hope for the people of this country lies in the fact that the military might revolt…..”

    Are you kidding me?! If you think the only hope is that the military might revolt then this country is in fact doomed. Dave, you seem to be pro-constitution. The constitution has mechanisms for removing people from office. Every two years there’s an election for representatives. Every four years the president is elected or re-elected. And every six years a senator comes up for election. In the meantime, for those that violate the law impeachment is an option. If you really believe in your precious constitution and think president Obama has committed high crimes and misdemeanors then you get your fellow citizens together and persuade your representatives to impeach him. Otherwise, by advocating a military overthrow you are simply circumventing the tools developed by the founders.

    By asking for a military coup you show yourself ignorant of human history. Rarely if every has a military overthrow been followed by the emergence of liberty. I can’t think of a single instance when it has happened. Instead there is mostly grief and despair. If you, or anyone for the matter, thinks that a military overthrow will yield the conditions for liberty and freedom then you’ve been duped. Here’s what you will face if the military ever does take control of the government:

    Wage and price controls, probably for a long time.
    Stock market crash. IRA’s, 401(k)’s and pensions will tank. Then what for those who survive on those?
    In the interest of “national security” the military will begin rationing fuel and food. Then what are you going to do?
    Lack of freedom to be mobile and move about freely, even in your own neighborhood.
    Suspension of habeas corpus and the 5th amendment, military tribunals in lieu of civilian trials by a jury of your peers.
    Suspension of the 2nd amendment. The military doesn’t want competition.
    Suspension of the 1st amendment. Your website will be gone because the military won’t want any subversive speech. The internet will be effectively killed.
    Suspension of the 4th amendment. The military won’t honor your privacy. In the name of “national security” of course.
    Dismissal of the congress and courts in favor of military control over the legislative and judiciary. Do you want Gen. Keith Alexander as dictator in chief?

    If you truly believe in your constitution then utilize every tool at your disposal to persuade your peers and representatives to impeach your president and restore the republic. But here’s the $64 question – just how far back in the “way back machine” do you want to travel Dave? At what precise point in American history do you want to restore the republic too?

    there is always a reason why the dhs would by so much ammunition,vehicles and weaponry, their not just gonna leave the weaponry in a pile for years and years, and the increase of foreign troop movements always explain something

    there is nothing wrong with looking into this kind of stuff, it might be usefull, interesting, or maybe a little bit of both

    it all depends on the reader

    but there is always a reason why they buy so much weaponry, think about it

    Tyrannies have little use for veterans except for their propaganda value as gallant heroes who attract young men to the ranks, and to young women who encourage their men, because any veteran can become a burden to the state, or a risk to the regime, or both. That’s why in post-war documentaries you don’t see badly wounded German survivors; some survivors may have lost an arm or an eye but none had the really bad injuries some allied survivors had to get by with, because the Nazis had them liquidated on the trains and ships bringing them home.

    Given the choice any tyranny would unburden itself of veterans, save for the useful ones.

  10. george manchester October 10, 2013 at 9:08 am

    I wish with all of my heart, as a man who grew up in a society that still acknowledged that there IS a God in heaven, that Dave were wrong. He is not. Those of you who think that God does not allow us to reap what we sow, just because we are living in America, are wrong. We are going to find out, now, just which among us are actually born-again Christians and not just CINOs. God said in His Word,”I will shake all that remains, so that what is left cannot be shaken.” As Jesus said, “If they do this (turn to evil) when the tree is green, what will they do when the branch is dry?” Answer: people will not turn to God because their deeds are evil. Very sad.

    Only then can we return to a Constitutional Republic.

  15. Paul Miracle October 10, 2013 at 10:44 am

    I disagree I believe the American will power will prevail. The American citizens have never lost a war and that is due in part of our selfishness to not have anyone control us. We may be greedy, but we are proud. Yes, it seems our men have turned into wusses that get manicures and wear skinny jeans. But there is a lot more of us hard working freedom loving Americans out there. You just don’t hear from us as much, because we are busy working. The little wusses sit around and whine and cry all day, so that’s what the establishment believes we are. The American people might be slaughtered, but we will not go down without a fight.

  16. Catman October 10, 2013 at 11:38 am


    You are correct. Tyranny is already here. It has been for many years. Some would argue the date, but that is irrelevant.

    Up until about 2000, it has been a soft Tyranny. Mostly enforced by souls who believed they were doing the “right” thing. The most visible example would be in the area of gun control. Even pro-gun people didn’t really object to The National Firearms Act of 1934, or The Gun Control Act of 1968 because they were concerned about the well being of their fellow man. Even President Regan went along with various forms of gun control. It wasn’t until Clinton signed the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act that a larger section of the populace began to vociferously oppose gun control.

    America has been intentionally divided. Everyone “got theirs” by the bequest of government. Government had spoils to distribute to buy off segments of the population by stealing from other less politically valuable groups. Want to know one of smallest, if not the smallest, racial “minority” group in the United States? The Japanese. The government doesn’t even recognize them as a “minority”, yet it has no problem taking from them to give to other teeming swarms of people who refuse to assimilate, like illegal aliens from Mexico and other Latin American Countries.

    Once the American people realized that their generosity and good nature were being taken advantage of and demanded an accounting from their representatives, that’s when the Hard Tyranny began. We’ve been watching it ramp up since the Militia Movement exploded on the scene back in the late 1980’s and then expanded after Waco and Ruby Ridge.

    In the wake of PRISM and Snowden, people have forgotten about Eschelon, and all the other crap all the way back to the 1960’s when the FBI was keeping track of the magazines you subscribed to and what library books you checked out. By the way, those were all “conspiracy theories” back then.

    The American People shown themselves to be a cohesive and rather intractable lot when really angered. I wouldn’t sell them short if we do see a revolution. Many of the tools of the establishment (cops, etc) won’t go head to head with the new mob in the streets. Someone throwing rocks and bottles is a far cry from someone dropping gallon jugs of gasoline from rooftops and hitting your cruiser with .338 Lapua. The entitled classes won’t abandon their ways and will continue to make demands and will become violent when they’re cut off complicating the social rubric. Foreign military will have their hands full. If they gun down people indiscriminately, all it will do is fan the flames and they will find themselves facing an opponent who will grant no quarter. We’re here on our own turf, and they and theirs are half a world away.

    Dave: “I WOULD SETTLE FOR 1990”?

    The republic was lost due to Lincoln’s war. The goal should be the restoration of the republic, not retrogress to Reagan’s bufoonery. During his “blessed” administration America went from the world’s largest creditor nation to the worlds largest debtor nation. It would take a “special kind of stupid” to really want such?

We wait until AFTER THE FACT to Act, instead of taking the “Straight Path” and Stopping “The Dark” the VERY Moment it is recognized…. I myself, have an unbelievably unimaginable level of Loathing and Contempt for the Human Species….

    People BEND OVER and let the Demonic Psychopaths seize power and “Stick A Long One” Straight Up our Collective Rears…. Then We whine and make Piecemeal, Ineffective Attempts to Remove “The Cancer” caused by the Demoniac Power Brokers, which ALWAYS means, in the end, in ANY Age…. NOTHING CHANGES….. Same Shyt, Different Face……

    If Aliens abducted me, and said: “We are considering the eradication of the human race…. What are your thoughts?”


    Humans are Lying, Treacherous, Ungrateful, SELF-IMPORTANT, Thankless, Thoughtless PARASITES that DESTROY EVERYTHING Around them INCLUDING one another in THE WORST Ways possible……

    Humans will PRETEND to befriend Your species AND will Learn Your Secrets ONLY TO BETRAY And DESTROY YOU Aliens…..

    EXTERMINATE ALL HUMAN LIFE FORMS Down to the LAST Man, Woman and Child BEFORE they can INFEST DEEP SPACE…. If You wish an UNSPOILED Universe.


  23. Miss G October 10, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    Good evening all,
    Our founding fathers would be sad to see this country today..and so am I. What is going on is crazy, evil, and disgraceful.

    However, I want to share with you,my fellow Americans, an inspirational story of hope regarding a specific population of individuals in China that have endured horrible persecution since 1999 at the hands of the evil to the core Chinese Communist Party. The horrors they have endured are VERY much like what this website and others are saying is headed this way.

    In the early 1990’s a Qigong practice called Falun Dafa was introduced to the public in China and spread like wildfire and grew to about 100 million. The 5 qigong exercises were helping the people to feel better and the core principles of the practice being taught my Master Li Hongzhi, which are Truth, Compassion, Tolerance were helping the Chinese to strive to improve their moral character based on traditional Taoist and Buddhist teachings. It was so popular that there would be large groups gathering in parks early in the morning before work to do these exercises together. Also high ranking members of the Chinese Govt were practicing too. Then the head of the party back then, Jiang Zeminm, banned it due to its popularity and large crowds that were not under the government’s control.

    On July 20, 1999 it became illegal all of a sudden to practice Falun Dafa and Jiang Zemin and his gang spread lies around the world via the media against the practice. He declared war on the 100 million people in China who practiced Falun Dafa and vowed to wipe out any trace of this practice in three days. Well…it is 14 years later and Falun Dafa has NOT been wiped out.

    The Communist Party has tried every filthy, evil tactic in the book against these poor people. They are experts at this. They set up special offices (called 610 offices) all over the country which are gestapo like units to “implement” the thug like arrests, beatings, house inspections, etc. to intimidate and scare people. BUT EVEN SO DAFA HAS NOT BEEN SQUASHED.

    They have arrested people several times and thrown them into labor camps for years, mentally torturing them and trying to “reform” them to give up their beliefs in this practice. BUT EVEN SO MANY HAVE SURVIVED THIS AND REFUSED TO GIVE UP THEIR RIGHTS.

    Many have been fired from their jobs, had pensions taken away, ran away from their hometowns to dodge arrests, BUT EVEN SO DAFA CONTINUES IN CHINA TODAY.

    In fact, there is a growing movement in China lately where the local townspeople that stayed out of this horrible persecution for years are starting to speak out and curse the Party when someone they know is arrested and demand their release. People are starting to band together and speak out.

    There is also a growing movement where over 147,850,000 people have signed a declaration to disassociate themselves from the Chinese Communist Party and all of its organizations…because they are fed up, disgusted, and want nothing to do with it.

    The persecution is sadly still going on technically speaking, but the goal of the mighty and powerful Chinese Communist Party to squash this group in three days DIDN”T and NEVER will happen.

    My point in sharing all of this is that no matter how evil things may get, or what demonically evil force tries to harm the masses, when your heart and mind are rooted in Truth and standing up for what is right…..they won’t be able to squash us. I personally believe that this is a fundamental law of the Universe that doesn’t let such things happen.

    If you want to learn more about the Falun Dafa journey and plight check out http://www.falundafa.org. I think it is really remarkable what they have endured and their plight can and may inspire all of us in the future.

    God bless America and all of her citizens.

    Just wrote the following today, and sent to a couple of favorite sites. Now sitting at Huntsville, Tx state park…and found what looks in excess of 100 Dps cars cordoned off here. Very unusual.

    Air Force Veteran (honorable discharge), Battered Wife, Registered Nurse, Unemployed, Homeless.

    Guess that’s how my résumé ‘should’ read now. Actually had two job interviews yesterday, with possible offers expected from both. Something which would be unlikely, if I’d been forthcoming regarding my ‘true’ situation. Even if I ‘am’ offered employment, how will I be able to work long enough to earn a sufficient paycheck…to obtain food, gas, a place to bathe and sleep? Not to mention longer term goals of actual rent and various utility deposits?? Right now my home is my car…from which I’ve been awakened more than once, by police lights shining in the window, followed by instructions to the nearest Walmart parking lot…with the ‘friendly’ suggestion that I might be allowed to sleep in their parking lot. State parks have proved useful for cleaning up, but can’t afford the fees of an overnight stay, or gas to go there regularly. Unfortunately it’s ‘still’ hot and humid here in southeast Texas, so in addition to finding it hard to
    rest, I’m also beginning to look a bit unkempt. Not a great prospect for gainful employment (though I was able to put on a good ‘face’ yesterday…but it’s becoming difficult to maintain). Gotta say, it’s really scarey sleeping with windows rolled down…especially when you’re a frightened woman who’s just fled an abusive marriage!!

    My eye-opening ‘journey’, began a month ago, when my husband assaulted me for the final time. The police ‘assistance’ was abysmal, however he did go to jail temporarily. Subsequently I was forced to leave my home and job…in fear of the repercussions, should he locate me.
    That possibility was the reason given for my being asked to ‘leave’ the Montgomery County Women’s Center, the only ‘safe’ place I’ve had to lay me head, this past month. I’d managed to obtain the requirements for placement there, yet my brief respite was cut short, when I asked to speak with a counselor…after my abuser began making threatening phone calls to me while there. I was never given the opportunity of speaking with a counsellor, and was instead asked to leave the gated facility for my own ‘protection’, as my husband was aware of the city in which it was located. So now again, for the past 2 weeks, I’ve found myself living on the streets. Have made additional requests of contact with a counselor there, most recently as of today…when I advised the facility director of my frustration with the lack of assistance and intent to publish this information…to which she replied ‘that’s understandable’.

    The ‘many’ other agencies I’ve contacted for assistance, of ‘any’ sort, including short or long-term housing, food, gas, bathing, phone (for employment), etc…have essentially offered no assistance, or referrals to other agencies that provide no assistance…for ‘my’ situation. The ‘system’ it seems, is designed for people to be permanently dependent/needy…something I do not wish to be. The hundreds of phone calls and in person visits I’ve made in the past month, have been in an attempt of obtaining true, short-term, ’emergency’ assistance…so that I might once again be a productive member of society. Something I would have thought the benefit of my education and experience would have made much more possible.
    I’ve contacted the Houston Veteran’s Administration and multiple ‘supposed’ veteran’s assistance programs, Crime Vuictim’s, Houston Nam, Montgomery county and various other assistance ministries, 211, Texas Workforce, Salvation Army, shelters, foodbanks, etc, etc. They’re all a joke…only I’m not laughing. What are these people being paid for?? To pat themselves on the back for giving another useless referral?

    If it’s impossible for me to find any ‘real’ help, I have to wonder what hope there is for someone without my advantages. Especially for someone with small children. Learning to work with the ‘system’ as it seems to be designed, I suppose?!?

    Well I’m tired, hungry, and frustrated. A situation that seems unlikely to change anytime soon 🙁

    I’ll close with the one ‘bright light’, on my month long journey. A little nurse I met, who went above and beyond all expectations…when she saw me in tears at the prospect of having the small dog who had been my faithful friend for 13 years…impounded and possibly euthanized.

    David (poster) said: “If you truly believe in your constitution then utilize every tool at your disposal to persuade your peers and representatives to impeach your president and restore the republic”

    You miss the point Mr. Hodges has been making here for years. The constitution may exist, but it is ignored – ignored by nearly all of the members of the legislative and judicial branches – and of course it is ignored and held in high contempt by the executive branch. The constitution is also ignored by the states. It’s ignored by local law enforcement – completely ignored.

    Last year nine state attorneys general published a report stating The Obama Administration had committed more than 20 treasonous crimes while in office, any one of which would be worthy of commencing impeachment and criminal proceedings.

    Here is the memo:

    MEMO: A Report on Obama Administration Violations of Law
    FROM: Attorneys General Tom Horne, Arizona; Pam Bondi, Florida; Sam Olens, Georgia; Bill Schuette, Michigan; Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma; Marty Jackley, South Dakota; Alan Wilson, South Carolina; Greg Abbott, Texas; Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia
    DATE: March 5, 2012

    The list of violations is too long to post here, so I’ll include a link to a copy of the memo contents: http://thejaghunter.wordpress.com/2012/09/13/obamas-treason-attorney-generals-in-nine-states-report-on-obamas-violations-of-law/

    If the attorneys general of nine states can’t get the attention of the legislative and judicial branches, how on earth will the so-called “tools” you mention be used with any greater success to get the ball rolling for impeachment and prosecution of the criminals in Washington? Any reasonable person knows the answer.

    For the record you are CONPLETELY wrong on the trucker info!! Earl is a peice of crap and what he said is a bold lie. I’ve been following Truckers ride for the constitution and Zeeda Andrews clearly stated on FOX that EARL has no authority to call the shots!! So Dave ask a real source before you post!

    Well Dave you arnt making this quitting smoking thing any easier lol. But a true survivalist cant have any vices. Plus it will make me even more hard than I already am. Wife left me a few weeks ago now. All my woosie relatives, think I am fixated on the world is going to end. Their whole mindset is, if you don’t pay attention to any of the alternate views besides mainstream. Then everything will be just fine and dandy. But I love being a one percenter then I guess. Surely God is not going to treat us all the same. I want to go to this protest at the Alamo come the 19th. But like that Robert Plant song says. My self control, I cant rely on anymore.

    Now is not a time for diplomacy. Diplomacy is dead. Now is a time for action. If we do not take action we will become like Burma. Watch the movie “Beyond Rangoon”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beyond_Rangoon. Where the media is blocked from witnessing your slaughter, here or to the outside world. The only ones who knows your being slaughtered are you and your soon to be killer government. As was in Burma.

    P.S. Never surrender your firearms, regardless of how many politically incorrect features they have, (pistol grip, flash suppressor, high cap mags, etc.)

    We will not see change until we do what Alexander Solzhenitsyn lamented after the fact what the Russian people failed to do at Leningrad when Stalin ordered the round-up of the citizenry. Here is Solzhenitsyn in his own words:

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!”
    The above wisdom taken from the experience, the hind sight, the realization of Alexander Solzhenitsyn, author of the Gulag Archipelago, a three volume work, describing the Soviet forced labor and concentration camp system. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gulag_Archipelago

    What civil disobedience is going on today? People are protesting & calling it civil disobedience but that isn’t what it is. I would remind all that Thoreau engaged in civil disobedience by not paying taxes. He has shown us the way. Stop supporting tyranny & it collapses. When we stop paying for the govt it will finally stop oppressing us & disappear.

    The “govt” has ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD, and even WITHOUT
    taxation, it has MORE THAN ENOUGH.

    It has TWICE the profits and “revenues” of the put away “special budget” funds
    of taxation.

    Research the CAFR – a “special budget fund” where the excessive
    money is stashed, while a pretend “budget” is theatrically ‘argued’ about.

    The budget vs. the CAFR (where all of the real money is stashed away).

    The u.s. govt stashes away all the money in the CAFR financial funds, yet show you the “budget”.

    The budget “crisis” is a facade. The “govt shutdown” is theatrics.

    “The “budget” is pure fantasy where someone took a guess at how much money would be needed for some particular purpose and consistently ‘guess’ too low, and they tell us, “We need more money.”

    They don’t need more money. They just purposely ‘guessed’ wrong. – Intentionally.

    is this right, fair and just?

    Wake up human beings, this is a key.

    CAFR – comprehensive annual financial report

    It’s only “disobedience” in a corrupted, patriachally abused system. But,
    fact, it is called standing up for your boundaries, saying NO MORE to abuse and moving beyond the apathy from the last year. That’s good news.

    ACCOUNTABILITY is the next step of action.

    Boundaries are rightful and powerful, as you establish the consequences.

    Dave (poster) said: “By asking for a military coup you show yourself ignorant of human history. Rarely if every has a military overthrow been followed by the emergence of liberty. I can’t think of a single instance when it has happened. Instead there is mostly grief and despair. If you, or anyone for the matter, thinks that a military overthrow will yield the conditions for liberty and freedom then you’ve been duped. Here’s what you will face if the military ever does take control of the government:”

    Perhaps you are correct. I don’t think so. We are navigating uncharted waters, living in unprecedented times. Christ stated as such. History “benchmarks” can be thrown out the window. Mr. Hodges is not ignorant. He has experienced the tyranny of THE BEAST, first hand, and achieved victory in a David and Goliath-like battle. Truly, what is coming from the globalists and their puppets will make a military coup and its resulting form of life, no matter how harsh, look like romper room in comparison. Mark my words.

    Dave (poster) also said: “Wage and price controls, probably for a long time.
    Stock market crash. IRA’s, 401(k)’s and pensions will tank. Then what for those who survive on those?”

    Wow. Do you really believe that the ponzi scheme – administered by the criminal globalists and their puppets – is sustainable? Soon, you can kiss everything you’ve worked for goodbye. NOTHING you own will be left. NOTHING. The sand castle you have been so diligently constructing during the course of your working life will be washed away in the blink of an eye. You will be left with nothing.

    Massive theft, followed by designed collapse, and then extermination has been the globalists’ explicit plan for a very long time – set in full motion in 1913. You and I have been too busy working for them – too entertained and brain-washed by them to see the obvious. You are slave. You’ve been used, as we all have, to make the 13 satan-worshiping families that rule this world filthy rich. They now own the majority of the world’s assets. They have all that they need. You and I are no longer needed. The coming collapse and ensuing chaos will usher in their long-planned New World Order. The majority of us WILL BE EXTERMINATED.

    We have a choice to either continue to sleep and surely die, or unite and fight the tyranny.

    As a combat Vietnam veteran (1968-69), it incenses me to no end what is going on in America. I fought evil and the communists once and will fight them again if necessary. The war on Christianity and God in America keeps me more determined than ever to ‘fight the good fight’. Obama and his lemmings will have to kill me to shut me up; this appears to be their plan for baby-boomers what with death panels and Obama-Don’t-Care. I will never surrender to them, I will not sell out God or country to keep myself breathing, I will never embrace Islam as my religion or political system. I would rather be alive and certainly do not have a death wish. But should it come between making the choice of living under evil oppression with its lack of freedom and liberty or dying ‘fighting the fight’, the latter will be my happy choice. Patrick Henry had it correct:

    “It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace – but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

    I hate this because I agree with Dave.
    The biggest problem we have is actually written as the preamble to the Dick Act of 1902, wherein, it was made clear that we had become negligent in our duty to perform the clearly defined law enacted under our state Militia Acts, and Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15&16 of the Constitution.
    While certain sovereign powers have been delegated to the government, sovereignty remains in the hands of the People and we refuse to use it, or more likely we’ve been uneducated as to our duty and right.
    Unless we admit that it is our responsibility to put the cuffs on rogue politicians, judges, police, or whomever else sits in a temporary seat that the People have assigned we are at the end. It is only the Militia, as authorized by state law, that has the authority to enforce the law of the land. There are no government agencies, police departments, or other fictions of law that have the awesome power of the People organized into the Militia.
    We should be working towards revitalizing the Militia. There has to be a state out there that can push it through, and once that happens it may flow to other states. Protesting, talking, suits, and hope will accomplish nothing. We need the ability to enforce the law and arrest those who vote for acts contrary to the law of the land in violation of their oath of office.

    That is the past, not today or tomorrow.
    The US Military have only two options:

    1. Continue on as it is and watch every single thing they claim to fight for and defend be destroyed, eventually including themselves.

    2. Fight- arrest the traitors and see them be justly tried and justly hanged.

    Throughout history it has always befuddled me how the so few can control the masses? Throughout history the masses outnumbered their leaders by hundreds of thousand and recently by the MILLIONS!!!

    Yet, how is it, say like in America roughly 300 hardcore traitorous effete, er “elites” can control 300 million?? Anyone from outer space will laugh at such nonsense.

    Yet this is what is happening before your very eyes in America. I think I have it finally figured out. It is because they went along with them. I mean, what else could it be???

    My next question is why? But let me think about that further.

I am a veteran and retired from a 25 yr. law enforcement career. I’m as angry with this government as anyone and SUPPORT resistance to it. Where can we verify the existence of those targets? If the assertion is true and they really exist we should all be outraged and show the citizens what is happening. Info, please. God bless the vets and others who took action around the country and all of YOU who wanted to but couldn’t be there.
