- The list of constitutional transgressions and violations
of both the domestic civil liberties rights of the people, and violations
of existent international treaties and the creation of new ones via presidential
executive orders and secret arrangements, the immoral and illegal spying
by a president appointed to office via electronic election fraud, all sum
up and translate to a government that is isolated from the people, unresponsive
to both the general public will and welfare, and is in effect totally illegitimate.
- Appeals to Congress, both in terms of the general elections
and in terms of direct appeals by combat veterans, former military leaders,
surviving family members of 9/11 victims, and impeachment and voter groups,
have all been summarily ignored by Congress. Under the rule of law of
the United States of America, as it applies to both the civil rights of
each citizen individually and collectively, and as it applies in the Articles
directly in terms of the operation of our federal government, both the
executive and legislative branches of American national government have
failed deliberately in exercising their duties as prescribed by the law
of the land.
- The Constitution is a compact, an agreement, between
the American people and its government. The government was brought into
being by the Constitutional Congress; our Revolution was managed and somewhat
funded by the Continental Congress. General George Washington was frustrated
by the many funding shortfalls and often confused support and direction
from that first Congress. But Washington never assumed dictatorial power
in his role as commander in chief of America's then-standing military power.
It was this deference to Congress for its overall leadership of the nation
during its first monumental crisis that made Washington the greatest American
that ever lived and served his country.
- Frustration with Congressional bickering, delays, and
funding lapses during the conduct of the American Revolution eventually
transitioned American government from a weak, decentralized Articles of
Confederation-ruled government, to the Federalist dream of a stronger centralized
national government whose Congress could be relied upon to act quickly
in the nation's interests, and to make timely decisions to ensure that
the very purpose of America, that of individual freedom, was never compromised
by inaction. Obviously, the decision to scuttle the Articles of Confederation,
the rule of law ensuring decentralized national government, and replacing
it with our present, unofficially rescinded Constitution, was a monumental
mistake. Our Constitution's chief flaw is that it relied upon its execution
by honorable men; today, a dishonorable female Speaker of the House has
officially terminated it.
- In the entire history of this republic, no administration
has been worse than the current one. And there is absolutely no need to
again laundry list the crimes against the Constitution perpetrated by this
"administration." The administration has made deliberately planned
errors of commission against the Constitution, and Congress has made numerous
errors of omission as regards their REQUIRED duties. Obviously, the operative
word is required. The executive branch has overstepped its authority thereby
creating a unitary government dictatorship; Congress has repeatedly and
deliberately failed in their duties to rein in and check this branch of
the federal government, thereby establishing its legitimacy in the form
of the current American dictatorship.
- What does this all mean? It means that "our"
present American government is totally and constitutionally illegitimate!
The preamble of the Constitution makes it clear that it is "We the
People" who create and authorize this government, a government whose
first responsibility is the establishment of Justice. Where can such justice
be found in the present government's USA PATRIOT Act, the Military Commissions
Act, and the suspension of habeas corpus guaranteed in the very body of
the Constitution? Where is the justice in allowing the president and his
executive branch employees to spy on American citizens in hopes of getting
the goods on them so they can be arrested for violating any law that only
the president knows exists? Where is the justice in not allowing innocent
citizens tricked by treacherous powers and treacherous laws in refusing
them right to counsel, in not allowing them to face their accusers, in
not allowing them to know the charges against them, and in not allowing
them trial by jury? How is this justice?
- Forgetting about all the rest of the responsibilities
cited in only the Preamble, how has Congress protected our interests and
satisfied their constitutional responsibilities? The answer is they haven't.
Everything in American government that is done to the people today is
done to only serve the interests of the political parties, Democrats and
Republicans, with the most important consideration being that of catering
to the moneyed interests that best support either or both. And therefore,
in precisely this regard, there isn't a dime's worth of difference between
either. Political parties and partisan politics have erased the primary
function of Congress, which was to establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure
the BLESSINGS of liberty for ourselves and our children.
- Congress has, and continues to break the law; they are
completely illegitimate as regards their rule over US and their representation
of our interests. Congress is therefore irrelevant and worse than useless:
they are deliberately attacking this nation's purpose for being by doing
nothing to protect our interests. The Eve of Destruction is now upon US.
Our economy is being wrecked; our military is being wrecked, the latter
not for purposes of defense, but for purposes of carrying out despicable
and inhuman executive branch political policies; our domestic rights, freedoms
and protections have been put in the hands of a criminal dictator who hates
US and our rule of law. And Congress has done nothing and continues to
- We the informed have waited, and waited, and waited,
and waited. We have pleaded, and written, and phoned, and caucused, and
implored. We have come to the Rubicon. Now, it must be crossed, and once
this happens, America will never be the same. American government has
taken the American people to such new lows that we may never again be able
to rise to where we once were. The United States of America in its only
viable form, its people, must now dissolve the political bands which continue
to connect US to an alien, enemy government. Armed rebellion is not what
is needed, at least not yet; but we should never consider ourselves beyond
that. We would all like to believe that we are above violent overthrow,
but this administration and its despicable subservient do-nothing Congress
are making its avoidance increasingly difficult.
- The best way to attempt to save what is left of our freedoms,
and to get our unrepresentative Congress' attention, is civil disobedience.
Continuingly listing abuses and crimes perpetrated against US by our federal
government is fruitless. Enough crimes and abuses have been put on the
table, and Nancy Pelosi's response is to ignore them and to get them off
the table. Fine, we'll just do that! But while we're at it, we're taking
the table away from Congress and will now govern ourselves!
- America doesn't need Congress; Congress needs US but
thinks they hold US hostage. This is no longer the case.
- William L. Shirer offered that the German people succumbed
to Hitler and Nazism because they were unarmed and unorganized. Those
simple generalizations aren't wrong, but they are incomplete. The German
people succumbed to Hitler primarily through propaganda, control of elections,
and fear directed at the most active societal entities that threatened
his rise to dictatorial power. We in America are experiencing the same
here and now.
- Where does the dictatorship practice its most ruthless
suppression, and on the other hand, retreat and do its utmost to remain
transparent in societal events? It fires itself up to stifle organized
protests, demonstrations and religious "oppression"; but in what
form is this religious oppression? Isn't it the simple practice of religion
itself that constitutes the dictatorship's definition of religious suppression?
As they cry "suppression" and "religious discrimination,"
isn't that what government does? It cites "separation of church and
state," but nowhere is such a claim found in any of our Founding documents.
It therefore becomes obvious that our criminal dictatorial regime is terrified
of organized religion, and as such, uses the threat of loss of tax exemption
to silence criticism from the pulpit. But it is organized religion through
which dictatorships have all eventually fallen and they know it!
And religion is the basis of morality the Founders thought would come
naturally to those executing the constitutional principles of government
they had put in place.
- And although the ownership of firearms is important,
consider that in Saddam's Iraq, almost anyone could go down to the corner
gun shop and buy a fully automatic machine-gun. Can we do that here in
freedom-loving America? Gun ownership is still important, but not to the
level which Shirer has offered. And propaganda via the government-media
complex is under constant attack via the Internet. So of course, our government
via its Congress, is feverishly and secretly trying to shut down the Internet.
And when the Internet brought attention to the plight of Ed and Elaine
for their most egregious crime of "tax evasion," the criminal
uniformed jackboots backed off. Government gangsters just couldn't deal
with the massacre of yet another innocent family along the lines of Ruby
Ridge and Waco.
- Organization through religion, power of the purse, the
latter not for Congress but rather used in opposition to them in the form
of a tax resistance movement, a national shutdown and strike, and the elevation
of that one notable and noteworthy individual who has stepped up to help
US via his presidential candidacy; these are the means to stop the criminal
regime and their Congress.
- Election fraud must be prevented by US, not Congress;
they can't be trusted! Elections should be conducted through the churches
and synagogues via WRITTEN LETTER VOTE. Religious institutions have executive
type stovepipe organization charts, and voting can be counted and summarized
upwards. This should be done no matter what Congress does; they've become
irrelevant. What about the secret ballot? To hell with the secret ballot
NOTHING IS SECRET ANY LONGER with this criminal dictatorship. Precisely
who is best served by "secret ballot?" Isn't it the dictatorship
by giving it the ability to subvert elections? As Stalin offered, it's
who counts the votes that counts!
- Attorney Tom Cryer's victory over the IRS, the latter
the initial unjust criminal activity "our" government got away
with, and what has opened the door to the FBI, CIA, BATF, Department of
Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Agency, United States Park Police,
Department of Education Gun Toters, Environmental Protection Agency Gun
Toters, and on and on and on, is being feverishly suppressed by the government-media
complex. The government indeed doesn't want you to know ANYTHING about
this! Why? It is our power of the purse over the congroids! It can lead
to a LEGITIMATE LEGAL challenge of absolutely the most dangerous kind.
- Even dull-witted Americans who get their news from the
government-mass media complex, and who believe in either the Democratic
or Republican Parties, and who rely on the fraud of voting and fraudulent
electronic vote tallies, can be made to pay attention when it comes to
avoiding payment to the IRS! And what does the IRS and its authorizing
Congress do with our money? They give barges and barges of it to Israel,
the military-industrial complex, Big Oil, Big Pharma, who in turn put it
in the pockets of politicians and congroids as campaign "donations"
[read payoffs and bribes]. This is government of, by and for the people?
- First it was the victory of former IRS agent and CPA
Joseph Bannister in June 2005 that defeated the IRS when he demanded of
them copies of the law authorizing them to tax his income. IRS lost the
case because they couldn't produce copies of the law. And now, in July
2007, Tom Cryer has won on the same basis. He demanded of the IRS to show
him and the jury the law, and they couldn't do it.
- Why are these landmark legal cases? Have you seen, heard
or read about this in the corporate establishment mainstream mass media,
aka the MSM, aka the government-media complex? Now you know why I continuously
hang the latter moniker on them; they're in cahoots with the government's
organized crime network in Washington!
- We must deprive Congress of their most powerful weapons:
power of the purse, power of propaganda, and power over elections. We
must deprive them of their "legal" authority over US; they have
none! By helping the Bush regime destroy and invalidate the Constitution,
they have in effect destroyed and invalidated themselves. They, and now,
ALL of American government, are illegitimate. Their activities are not
even remotely sanctioned by the principles of the Constitution of the United
States of America. Congress is illegitimate! It is now our job to make
