America’s 246th anniversary of our Declaration, let’s take a moment to celebrate some recent VICTORIES that affirm our Declaration’s noble cause; Defense of LIFE, LIBERTY, and the PURSUIT of Happiness. Self Defense SCOTUS found that New York’s concealed-carry...
Common Sense Addressed to the Inhabitants of America
I’m going to start out with a hard truth nobody in elected office is allowed to say, but that is nonetheless true: had there been an insurrection on January 6, 2021, it would have been 100% justified – far more so than when leftist rioters burned down buildings and fought with the police and National Guard, trying to get into the Capitol Building on January 6, 2017. Leftwing politicians and our media seem to have forgotten that more than 200 people were arrested, and six police officers were injured, around the Capitol Building in a riot on January 6, 2017.
One difference between January 6, 2017, and January 6, 2021, is that in 2017 Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House at the time, called up several thousand police reserves and the National Guard to keep people out of the Capitol Building, whereas in 2021 Nancy Pelosi did not do a damned thing. Another difference is that 2017 saw more than ten times as much damage as did 2021. Another difference is that the police did not kill any of the rioters in 2017, whereas in 2021, a police officer shot and killed an unarmed Air Force veteran named Ashli Babbitt. Another difference is that in 2017 none of the protesters were really prosecuted, whereas, since 2021, the FBI has been working very hard to prosecute anyone and everyone near the Capitol Building, whether they broke the law or not.
Nancy Pelosi had, incidentally, been told by the FBI that there would be a riot on January 6, 2021 (there are indications that the FBI may have had informants helping to foment one). She still did nothing – and that was by choice.
The biggest difference between January 6, 2017, and January 6, 2021, is the way Democrats and the press covered both incidents. Democrats championed the rioters in 2017 – some were directly involved. In most cases, the SAME Democrats who supported an ACTUAL insurrection in 2017 are the loudest people calling January 6, 2021, an insurrection, today.
And let us not forget that the FBI unequivocally declared, after a long and thorough investigation, that January 6, 2021, was a spontaneous riot and NOT in any way, shape, or form an insurrection. Nancy Pelosi knows this, and yet she is still forcing Congress to investigate it as an insurrection anyway. Why? I think we need to take a hard look at the facts and understand that Nancy Pelosi does not care whether or not it was an insurrection. The Democrats played the same game in 2021 that the Nazis played in 1933; they burned down the Reichstag themselves.
Congress and the FBI have spent the last year investigating an insurrection that both groups know did not even take place, scouring the country for people who may be guilty of trespassing, or in some cases perhaps vandalism – but nothing more than that – and in the meantime when the left does the same thing, which they have done far more frequently (and far more violently), the same Democrats fight prosecuting anyone.
There were actually several insurrections when Trump was President. The first was on his inauguration day, but remember that another one was so bad that Trump had to be evacuated to the Presidential bunker. How quickly we forget!
When the left tries to overthrow the government, it is a ‘mostly peaceful protest’ and a ‘summer of love,’ whereas any protest or riot committed by the right, even when it really is mostly peaceful, becomes worse than 9/11 and Pearl Harbor.
I am going to mention ‘the left,’ and ‘democrats’ throughout this article. Note that as I do, so I am not attacking all Democrat voters. I am attacking the party leadership and the party platform.
I believe that most Democrat voters would vote Republican if they knew what was really going on.
The hypocrisy of the left would be astounding were it not for the fact that hypocrisy makes sense to those who seek only power, rather than justice. To the left, getting power is just, so any means necessary to take power is justified. We the people are not citizens to the left, but subjects, and if you are a Republican, you are considered a criminal subject.
The left holds two completely different sets of legal and ethical standards, depending on the political leanings of the people who do something, and now Joe Biden has tweeted, “We are in a battle for the soul of America. A battle that by the grace of God, and by the goodness and greatness of this nation, we will win.”
President Biden is right that it’s a battle between good and evil, but his administration and the party his handlers lead is where the evil is. Arresting people for who they are rather than what they do is evil, and that is precisely what the Democratic Party now stands for.
Tony Fauci gave us tyranny, and the Joe Biden Administration is working to make it permanent.
It really is time to stop the United States’ Federal Government, once and for all.
It is not just time to stop the Joe Biden Administration either, as with but a few exceptions, the Republicans are not doing anything to try and save our country. We need to stop the Republicans, too – and I say that as a card-carrying member of the Republican Party.
Let me be very clear⏤I am condemning the entire Federal Government of the United States. I’m condemning both Democrats and Republicans – moderates and extremists. I’m condemning the whole damned thing.
Our government does not work for the American people, and it does not have our interests at heart. It works, rather, for itself. We tend to think of the Clinton Foundation, or Hunter Biden selling artwork to our adversaries while his father does our adversaries’ bidding, as corruption, but while these are some of the more egregious examples, it is by no means the only form of corruption that occurs.
I became interested in politics (as a pundit, not a politician) in 1992 when Dan Rostenkowski went down. Prior to Dan Rostenkowski going down, all of Congress with but a handful of exceptions (five people, if my memory serves me correctly) were embroiled in a stamp scandal. Congressmen and Senators were buying stamps with campaign funds, and then selling those stamps to the post office and pocketing the money. It was money laundering – illegally moving campaign funds into their personal accounts. How blatant was it? Congress had gone so far as to create a post office branch IN THE CAPITOL BUILDING for the express purpose of helping them illegally launder money, and with but a few exceptions, they were ALL doing it!
In 1992, the stamp scandal broke, and at the same time, Dan Rostenkowski got hit with a sex scandal. Dan Rostenkowski was given a choice to either be the fall guy for the stamp scandal, or to be drug through the mud on a sex scandal. Backroom deals were made, and Rostenkowski took the rap for the stamp scandal. The rest of Congress kept selling stamps.
Did you know that it is perfectly legal for congresspeople to engage in insider trading? Not only can congresspeople legally trade power for insider’ tips,’ but they can also legally trade stocks just before Congressional votes that will influence the value of the very stocks they trade.
Has anyone in Congress ever changed stances on an important vote, to make money in the stock market? Of course, they have. Our government is so corrupt and so bad at governing our country, that a former mob boss named Michael Franzese (he was a Captain in the Colombo Crime Family – his father, Sonny Franzese, was Underboss) has a book coming out titled Mafia Democracy, where he details how after defeating the mob our government became the mob.
Mafia Democracy is not out yet, but if you YouTube Michael Franzese, you can hear him speak about this topic in detail, and the point is that corruption permeates every aspect and every level of our Federal Government. Our Federal Government no longer exists for the people, but now exists to enrich itself off the people. We are not citizens. We are farm animals, and nothing more. King Edward Longshanks, Hammer of the Scots, summed up what we are to our government sometime around 1300 AD, when he called his subjects, “Sheep! Mere sheep!”
But back to January 6, which Ted Cruz called “a terrorist attack.”
There has been a lot of speculation about why Ted Cruz said what he said. Let me add to that speculation. I believe Ted Cruz knows something the rest of us don’t, and said what he said as an act of self-preservation. I don’t know what is coming, but I am sure it has something to do with the 2022 elections and the January 6 investigation. Ted Cruz does not want to be on the wrong side of that.
Expect an October Surprise – something severe enough that Ted Cruz is afraid of it – just before the midterms. My guess is that a number of Republicans are going to be charged with crimes related to January 6 sometime after the primaries are over but before the General Election. My guess is that Ted Cruz has cut a deal where he will throw his fellow Republicans under the bus, and in return will not be one of those charged with insurrection.
Note that there was no insurrection on January 6, 2021, so any charges against Republicans will not stick, but valid or not charging a bunch of Republicans with insurrection just before an election will give the Democrats and our media quite a bit to talk about. Guilt will be assumed by the press, any indication that they might not be guilty will be suppressed by big tech, and after the election is over, all of the charges will just go away.
Remember that Donald Trump was sued by hundreds of women for sexual assault in 2016 in civil cases that were dropped in 2017, before any hearings could take place. The suits had no merit but created great fodder for our media to pick up, and Trump was considered guilty based on the sheer volume of allegations. Similarly, I expect the January 6 investigations to cast a very wide net, creating shock and awe by the sheer volume of Republicans implicated. A few Republicans, including Ted Cruz, will call his colleagues guilty (and will become heroes to the left – the new face of the Republican Party on CNN), and with the Pied Piper playing a tune of Republicans being Nazis in our ears, we’ll go out and vote in fraudulent elections. That’s the plan.
After the election, the charges will vanish, but the media and the DNC will print into the public lexicon that they, and they alone saved Democracy from the Republicans, and will work on legislation to ensure that no such threat as a Republican Party can ever threaten our Democracy again.
What I just described is exactly how the mob would play things if they had control of the government, and since the government is now the mob, that is exactly what I think will happen.
Michael Franzese – If you read this, tell me if you think I’m right.
Remember – you heard it here first, and when it happens, I’m going to bring this article back out to remind everyone that it’s all a crock of BS. Too bad that when I bring this article out again, social media won’t let anyone share it. You can share this article this time as big tech is not yet aware of it, but share quickly as I believe it will be suppressed in spite of being a giant truth bomb.
To Ted Cruz, I would say that you are a brilliant lawyer and a masterful debater, but neither of those are skills our nation needs. We need statesmen (and women) who will defend our Constitutional Republic against those who would burn it down. If you want to be a leader, stop reasoning with the left and start shouting at them. If you made the deal I think you made; you can redeem yourself by reading this letter on the Senate floor. You can even omit the parts about you. THAT would be the act of a statesman, and not the action of a lawyer.
In poker, you play the hand you have. If that’s a pair of twos, you play a pair of twos. In politics, the same thing is true, and the Democrats have only two things to run on: defending the nation from a disease that is now less dangerous than the flu, and preventing another January 6.
Ironically, should the Democrats lose the next election, they’ll try to burn Washington DC down again, just like they did in 2017 – but they’ll justify it by pointing out that the ‘bad guys’ won, and of course, the bad guys MUST be overthrown for the good of the country. To the left, Democracy only works when the left wins, so a working democracy includes whatever it takes to ensure Democrats win. Fraud? Cool – as long as it works.
When Republicans win, violence, rioting, insurrection – it’s all to save our democracy.
To the Democrats, Democracy is what you get from a one-party system. Stalin and Mao – that’s their brand of ‘democracy,’ and unless you are denouncing this article instead of sharing it, you are in their crosshairs. Remember, too that the NSA tracks everything you do online. The government knows you read this.
Welcome to 1984. Big Brother really is watching, and unless you want to see the conclusion to that story coming out in real life, keep reading…
Never forget that the DNC believes in power such that to the DNC, the process can be damned.
Democrats have made it abundantly clear that they will run on fear in 2022, and that they will use the power of our government and their lock on the media pulpit, to stoke that fear. While the Covid pandemic ends and Omicron – which is less dangerous than the common flu – becomes endemic (aka just another virus), Anthony Fauci has already told us that just because Covid is not killing people anymore, that does not mean we can loosen lockdowns.
Yes – Fauci actually said that. And note that I’m not calling him a doctor anymore.
Anthony Fauci is working to make the pandemic permanent – or at least to extend it into the next election such that Democrat Governors and Secretaries of State can run elections illegally in violation of state election laws, and in violation of the US Constitution (again).
Democrats are also working to pass Federal election laws to override the states, making the kinds of fraud that occurred in 2020 permanent parts of our election landscape all over the country. How ironic it is that the Democrats blame Republicans for ‘attacking democracy’ while simultaneously trying to pass laws that would completely end democracy. And what do the Republicans do? Nothing. Mitch McConnell’s technique is to fight until the bottom of the ninth inning, and then, whether he is winning or losing, he caves. Mitch McConnell is a part of the cabal. Mitch McConnell is a disgrace.
Is the whole Hammer and Anvil thing real? I have no idea. Sidney Powell says it is, but I have not seen the evidence for myself. What I do know is that the Maricopa County election investigation found almost as much fraud as they found legitimate votes, including more than 200,000 votes for which there were no paper records that were deleted from the voting machines (by someone who connected remotely) two days before the servers were turned over for the audit. There were also tens of thousands of duplicate ballots, tens of thousands of mail-in ballots that had never been folded (and were thus never in envelopes), thousands of ballots cast by dead people – you name it, and the Democrats in Maricopa County did it.
Sadly, since the DNC controls the media (or rather, the CCP controls the media, and the DNC and the CCP are currently aligned), very few people know what the Maricopa County audit found. The ‘official’ story is that the audit showed that Joe Biden won the election, and well – sure: if you recount all of the duplicate ballots again, including the fraudulent ones, you get the same result. But if you only count the valid ballots, Trump won by a landslide. You’ll never hear that on CNN, but it’s true.
The claims against fraud in the 2020 election were, initially, very carefully worded. We were told that there was no evidence of ‘widespread fraud,’ for example, when the claim was that the fraud was targeted into critical locations in specific, toss-up states. There is video of election workers on a shift change at Cobo Hall (in Detroit) carrying containers into the counting-room – one hour after observers were told to leave (supposedly counting was halted for the night, but counting never stopped). Literally, every election worker coming in at 3 AM had a suitcase, a cooler, a wagon of boxes, or some other large container. Counting continued without observers, and by the time observers returned in the morning, an insurmountable Trump lead in Michigan had been flipped into a Biden victory.
What happened in Cobo Hall smells like a hog-heaven of fraud, and the great lie is that the Great Lie (as the Democrats call it) is a lie.
The Democrats stole the 2020 election, and likely not just the Presidential election. House elections are local and thus hard to cheat, but Senate seats can be stolen the same way Presidential elections can be.
And now, as we approach the next election, suddenly, the claims that ‘widespread vote fraud did not occur’ have branched out into far more terrible claims about Republicans wanting to end Democracy through voter suppression and insurrection, which will be pillar claims in the 2022 midterms.
Even without talking about the election – even if you believe it really was the safest and fairest election in the history of our nation – note that our Federal Government is enumerated with certain, specific powers in Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution. The 10th Amendment makes it clear that any power not explicitly given to the Federal Government belongs either to the individual states, or to the people as individuals.
Our Federal Government has never been good at staying within its enumerated powers, and is today so grossly beyond its limits that the American people are well within their rights, as per the Declaration of Independence, to dismantle our Federal Government, at any time. Our Federal Government does all kinds of things that it is not empowered to do, and then does NOT do most of the things that it is SUPPOSED to do, such as enforcing immigration laws.
To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson: We believe in the rights to pursue Life, Liberty, and Happiness, and to secure these rights, our forebears instituted a government among the people, deriving its just power from the consent of the governed. Now we have a government that is destructive to these ends, and it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as is most likely to affect the people’s safety and happiness.
We need to stop the federal government’s overreach once and for all. Doing so is our duty as citizens (rather than mere sheep), and if you have ever served as a member of our Armed Forces (including those currently in our armed forces), you swore an OATH to defend the Constitution of the United States.
The question is not one of whether or not we SHOULD dismantle the Federal Government – we absolutely should – the question is HOW we should stop the Federal Government of the United States.
Should we violently dismantle the government of the United States?
Giving people the power to stop the federal government is, in fact the actual purpose of the Second Amendment. But violently overthrowing the government should be an absolute last resort, done only after all other means have failed. I don’t think we are there yet. Luckily for us our founding forefathers baked several methods to stop the federal government into our Constitution, such that we can do so not only peacefully, but legally.
The first thing we need to do is to be honest about our intent, and to demand that those who represent us as Republicans be honest about their intent. Democrats are running on us, supposedly wanting to destroy democracy. Let us throw that back in their faces – our country is not, and never has been a democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic that uses democratic means to elect people into government office, and that government has specific, limited powers. Democrats want to replace our Republic with something else, and something that does not use democratic means.
Yes – we oppose them, and we need to be clear that our intent is to “Preserve the Republic.”
The second thing we need to do is to vote, and to do so in a very specific way. We should vote as revolutionaries in primary elections, getting rid of as many incumbents as possible (with a few notable exceptions), and then vote as a Republican block in all general elections, with every single one of us showing up.
Be revolutionaries in the primaries, but party loyalists in the general.
Don’t forget about down-ballot elections, either. School boards, election boards, local governments – we need to run these things. Politics starts locally, so we need Republicans to run for local offices, and we need them to win.
People talk about a Convention of States. I’m actually against that, as a Convention of States would have the power to create a new Constitution, and I’m still somewhat enamored by the one we already have. Our problem is not that we don’t have a good Constitution; our problem is that we no longer follow the Constitution. A Convention of States, while it would have the power to make a new Constitution, would have no power to make the Federal Government use that new Constitution. If the Democrats are in charge, they’d simply ignore it and continue on as usual. They might even lock the people in the Convention up on insurrection charges. The fact that a Convention of the States is perfectly legal – since when has that stopped Democrats from throwing people in jail? They don’t care.
You cannot fight power with law. Power can ignore law. As Leon Trotsky put it, whatever is enforced – that is the law. According to Trotsky, what old men write in hallowed halls is totally irrelevant; law is whatever is enforced. The left is not following Thomas Jefferson. They are following Leon Trotsky.
The left does not care about laws. Laws exist only to the degree that they can be weaponized against the political right. The left passes laws to make it easier to enforce those laws against the right, but there is no expectation that the left will in any way be constrained by those laws. If the left passes its election laws, that’s great for them – they can enforce them against the political right to gain more power. If the left does not pass election laws, they’ll just extend the pandemic and use Covid as an excuse to commit rampant fraud anyway.
The left has no interest in winning elections, other than as a means to take power, and the left is more than happy to cheat at elections, or to do whatever else they can do, in pursuit of power.
Wake up. We have never been a democracy, and have not used democratic processes for some time. We give our people the illusion of democracy, but the vote has become nothing more than an opiate for the masses. Trump won by Reaganesque numbers, and look what happened. We are told that Joe Biden got 81 million votes running from his basement. The man could not get more than ten people to a campaign rally, and yet we are told he won, and we go along like mere sheep.
Shouting “Let’s Go Brandon” at sporting events is not going to get the job done. We need to do more.
We can take a page out of Trotsky ourselves. We don’t need to fight the law. We need to fight power, and you can only fight power with more power.
One answer I really believe in is nullification. I wrote about nullification before – it was one of the first articles I wrote on the America Out Loud platform. States (and Ron DeSantis – I hope you are reading this) need to vigorously work to nullify anything, and everything the Federal Government does that is unconstitutional. Some states are already doing this with NEW things the Federal Government does, such as Vax mandates and potential gun restrictions. In the case of Texas, that state is acting to enforce federal immigration laws that the Federal Government is ignoring, which is kind of like nullification in reverse.
The primary method to dismantle the Federal Government is for STATE governments to reassert their sovereignty through nullification, and the states already have the power to do that.
Speaking of nullification, if the Democrats pass their election bills, the states will need to nullify those bills right away. If the DOJ tries to get involved, tell them to go to hell. I don’t care if the Supreme Court tells states to follow federal election laws – those laws would be unconstitutional, and are not binding. The states need to enforce state election laws no matter what the Federal Government tells them to do.
Another legal thing we can do is to ignore illegal laws. If your employer requires you to get vaccinated, ignore the request. If your employer asks if you are vaccinated, tell them that asking that question is a violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA). If your employer fires you, SUE them for violating your rights under HIPPA. HIPPA is a Federal law, passed by Congress and signed into law by the President of the United States. An executive order does not override a law, and it is ILLEGAL for your employer or anyone else (including the government) to inquire into your health records, which includes your vaccination status. You do not have to disclose whether or not you have been vaccinated, and your employer cannot legally fire you for not answering that question, so don’t answer it.
The same thing is true about bars, restaurants, concert venues, and other places where States may mandate proof of vaccination. Ignore them – all of those laws violate HIPPA. A private business is not allowed to ask about your vaccination status. If you are denied service or are arrested, sue.
If you own a business, make sure that any rules or regulations you are following are legal. If a state does something that violates Federal law, the Bill of Rights, or your State’s Constitution, ignore it.
Make the government enforce illegal laws, and then take them to court for doing so. The Supreme Court is conservative – the courts are our friend.
Protest. If we really want to get the Federal Government’s attention, we should get a two million person march in support of the 2nd Amendment, through the streets of Washington DC. It is perfectly legal to protest while openly carrying firearms, even though the Federal Government would never let two million people do that in the nations’ capital. Perhaps it is time to be truly provocative.
If you are in the military, quit. Tell your commanding officer that continued service in defense of this Federal Government is no longer compatible with your oath of enlistment, and that you cannot in good conscience continue to defend a government that stands in defiance of the US Constitution. Give your commanding officer your phone number and tell him or her that when the government is once again doing its job, as defined by the Constitution, you’ll come back. You’ll probably get a discharge under other than honorable conditions, which would later upgrade to an honorable discharge.
Share this article. Share it with your governor and with members of Congress. Share it on social media. Share it through email. Share this on Facebook, on Twitter, and on other social media platforms – make this go viral.
Share this article with the President. Share it with friends and family. If you are in the military and are not yet prepared to quit, share it with your commanding officer. Don’t say you agree with it, as the military may try to call that a ‘disloyal statement.’ Tell your commander instead that this article troubles you and that you are going through your chain of command for guidance. You cannot be prosecuted for that; it is your commander’s job to give guidance when you are troubled.
If you are someone’s commanding officer, understand that I am a United States Marine and am writing this BECAUSE OF my oath of service. The Federal Government has become an enemy of the United States Constitution, and you and I are BOTH sworn to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. If you are defending the government rather than the Constitution, you are in dereliction of your duty. You should pass this article further up your chain of command, telling YOUR commander that YOU are troubled by it, and then ask for guidance.
Semper Fidelis means ‘Always Faithful’, and we must, all of us, Always be Faithful to the United States Constitution!
What a beautiful thing it would be if this article found its way up the chains of command until it landed on the Commander in Chief’s desk. Sir – If this letter gets to you through a military chain of command, that would be a clear indication that you do not have the confidence of our troops (nor anybody else in this country), and that you need to resign. Take your friends in the DNC (and RNC) with you. And don’t forget your teddy bear.
If you are a police officer, I salute you, but you need to ask what laws you can, and what laws you cannot legally enforce. Does a state law violate the Bill of Rights, a federal law, or your State Constitution? If it does you should refuse to enforce it. You should certainly not enforce vaccine passport laws, as those violate HIPPA.
The further one goes up the chain of command in a police force, the more power they have to tell their subordinates what laws are legal to enforce. If you are in a position to do so, use that power.
If you are a police officer, you should vigorously enforce laws prosecutors do not want you to enforce. A prosecutor’s job is to prosecute people who violate the law. It is up to legislatures to decide what those laws should be, and a prosecutor who uses ‘discretion’ to decide which laws to enforce – that violates the law! If prosecutors want to misuse discretion, make them do so over and over and over again. Flood them with legal arrests that they don’t want to prosecute. If necessary, do so at the expense of enforcing the laws they do want enforced. Consider this kind of a reverse blue flu.
If you are a teacher, refuse to teach Critical Race Theory or any component thereof. Learning history means learning what happened in the past, as it happened. Teachers must teach history as it happened, which means both the good and the bad. CRT starts with a political ideology, and then picks and chooses what it wants to ‘teach’ about the past to support that political ideology. If you are ‘teaching’ CRT then you are NOT a teacher – you are a political propagandist praying on innocent children, and that makes you the lowest of the low. Teachers who ‘teach’ CRT disgrace their classrooms, their schools, their communities, and their profession. If you are teaching CRT, you are a disgrace.
If you are a parent, share this article with your children. Unless your children were born before the National Defense Authorization Act of 2002, they have never lived in a truly free society, and they need to know that there was a time before the government detained people indefinitely, without a trial, on ‘suspicion’ of terrorism alone.
I keep saying to share this article. There is a reason for that. Big Tech is going to suppress it, and if the mainstream media talks about it at all, it will be to demean it. This is an important article that everyone who loves our country needs to read, and yet every organization that has the power to help it reach people (such as Facebook and Twitter) will instead do everything they can to shut it down. Share it everywhere – in groups, through messenger; you name it. Big Tech can slow down the spread of information but let us show them that they cannot stop the spread of information.
Share this article.
If you have a platform, share this article through it. Help me get the word out that the crap our Federal Government is doing – it stops now.
In addition to sharing this article on social media, we need to go old-school. Print it out. The original Common Sense was a pamphlet – share this that way too. Send it through email. Forward it to friends and family. Many will read this and disagree but to truly disagree with it, they must first know what it says, so let them read it even if they are going to disagree.
When I heard Ted Cruz call January 6 an ‘act of terrorism,’ I noted that Cruz is a lawyer, and as such, he uses language carefully. Calling it an act of terrorism creates quasi-legal justification under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2002 to hold the people still imprisoned for January 6 indefinitely. These people are guilty of trespassing, and in some cases, perhaps of vandalism. They SHOULD be released even if guilty, based on having already served more than the maximum sentences for the crimes they may have committed.
Also, and perhaps more importantly, holding people indefinitely on suspicion alone is unconstitutional, no matter what laws Congress may have passed to authorize such treatment.
The Democrats have every advantage in this next election, other than numbers. We have the numbers, which without fraud, would be enough. The Democrats have the media, the Presidency, both chambers of Congress, and a willingness to use whatever power they have as political weapons against the political right.
The DOJ, FBI, CIA, NSA, IRS – every federal agency will be actively engaged in this election and will be doubly so in 2024. If we are unwilling to stand up to them, our country is done.
As for ‘cancel culture,’ consider that canceled, and no – we will not tolerate a sequel. I refuse to be afraid to speak my mind as a free person in a free country. I served this nation for eight years, defending the freedom of speech, and I defend it still – just with a keyboard and computer instead of a rifle. I’ve written thousands of articles (and one book), some of which have been read millions of times. My voice is already out there, so it is far too late to shut me up. I will not back down, and any attempt to shut me up will only amplify my voice further. If you want to try and ‘cancel’ me, roll the dice and take your chances.
As for the rest of America: join me. Let your voice be amplified as well. The silent majority has been silent too long. If we fail to speak now, we lose the ability to do so.
Are you mere sheep? If not, then get up and do something.
I hold Ted Cruz accountable for the language he used about January 6, 2021, and Senator – if you are listening, I thank you for going on Hannity to try and walk back your language. You, sir, of all people, should be sharing this article. I urge you to read this on the Senate floor. You said you are leading the fight. Prove it. I give you permission to take the parts about you out of the article when you read it, but if you wait for someone else to read this on the Senate floor, my guess is that they will leave those parts in, and your act of cowardice will become a part of the public record. Let this be your Red Badge of Courage moment – take your act of cowardice and make the fear of being a coward the source of renewed strength. You, sir, have been a valuable voice, but you can only be of value if you are on the right side.
I urge someone to read this on the floor of the House of Representatives as well. Our Federal Government is so far outside its constitutional limits – and so far in dereliction of duty with regards to what it is SUPPOSED to be doing – as to have become an illegal entity, illegally exerting illegal force against the people of the United States.
Any Republican in the House or Senate who is not willing to stand by this article needs to be primaried and thrown out of office. We have far too many politicians in office when what we need are statesmen and women. The politicians are destroying our country.
The politicians can go home.
Make support of this article a litmus test Republicans must pass in order to win primary elections. In general elections, remember that a bad Republican is still better than a Democrat.
The one thing our Federal Government still does on a bipartisan basis is to violate the Constitution of the United States, and while the desire to do so may not be as bad as was the desire to launder money when Dan Rostenkowski took the blame for everyone selling stamps, understand that the Democrats in Congress are by and large criminals who are directly, and intentionally violating the Constitution, and the Republicans are by and large only pretending to care. Most Republicans are just as guilty as are the Democrats. You people are not statesmen – you are an institution hopelessly corrupt and criminally negligent in the duties you were elected to, and have sworn to perform.
As a Marine, integrity is important to me. I would be honored if some member of Congress would read my words on the floor of Congress, calling out the vast majority of elected and unelected government officials as having no integrity. Please – hold me in contempt of Congress. Believe me, nothing Congress is going to do will express the level of contempt I have. Congress as an institution lacks integrity, the Biden administration lacks integrity, most of our unelected bureaucrats lack integrity – our Federal Government lacks integrity, and the American People are going to set things right.
To the American people, I say I get it. There is a whole school of economics called ‘Public Choice Theory’ covering exactly why elected officials never do what the public wants. The first job of an elected official is to get re-elected. Any other priorities an elected official may have come, at best a very distant second place, which is exactly why we need to throw the politicians out of office.
Our media has become a unified source of propaganda so the American people by and large have no clue what is truly going on. Even if we did not have rigged elections we would still often elect people who would be corrupted by Washington DC before they even arrived there. Our Federal Government is not going to fix this (though we can certainly elect people who will help). The fix will have to be imposed upon the Federal Government by the states.
I urge, or rather implore the American people to demand that our state governments act to aggressively nullify unconstitutional federal laws and actions. We have the weakest Presidential Administration in our nation’s history. Uncle Joe lacks not only the integrity to stop us, but also the moral courage. We are in some ways very lucky Trump lost the last election, as had Trump won, the swamp would still be stopping him at every turn and we would have no impetus to act. With Joe Biden, we need to act.
To the states, I say rise up against this Federal Government whenever and wherever it does anything it lacks the Constitutional authority to do – including with laws that may have been on the books for decades. Band together to help states do those things the Federal Government is supposed to do, but is unwilling to do. There is nothing stopping states from sending money to Texas and Arizona to help fund the wall. Do it now.
January 6, 2021, was a fake insurrection, created by Democrats and their lackeys in the media to use as a bludgeon against the American People. Let’s rise up, through every legal means at our disposal, and show them what a real insurrection looks like.
The time for talk is over. This is a time for action.
