- The Constitutional Militia IS Your Duty
Under The Second Amendment - Part 2
Exclusive to Rense
- Let me give you a few examples of how
the Constitutional Militia can be of critical importance in assisting law
- We all remember Katrina. I can guarantee you if the constitutional
militia had been up and operational in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama,
we would not have seen the murder and mayhem which followed. We would not
have seen so many with no plans for even back up water supplies. A "well
regulated militia" means just that. It means planning and structure.
It means holding constitutional classes so the participants fully understand
the Bill of Rights, obeying unlawful orders and their proper role. There
weren't enough law enforcement in New Orleans. So many of them also lost
their homes and needed to take care of their families. What was left was
chaos and death.
- With cities and towns literally wiped off the map for
hundreds of miles across the bottom of the gulf states, there wasn't enough
preparation at the local level. Much of the misery could have been minimized
had the militia been called up by the governors. There are dozens
of outstanding militia organizations in this country who work hard training
to be of help to emergency medical workers and law enforcement during a
natural disaster. But, they are not the constitutional militia and that
is a huge legal issue.
- Bringing in active duty military was the very worst thing
that could have happened and should never happen in this country. But,
how many times have I warned it was/is coming? I refer again to a piece
in the Sacramento Bee newspaper back in 1997: "Our
Civilian Military Face-Off". Do take the time to read it because
it was more than just some writing exercise.
- Despite the rosy predictions coming out of the liars
for hire (mainstream media and cable networks), 2012 is not going to be
better because the disabilities of our monetary system are still there,
jobs continue to be shipped overseas as well as the insane spending by
the other liars for hire, Congress. I don't need to rehash how bad the
job situation is, but as things worsen the odds of civil unrest climb.
As has been said by people far more intelligent than me, when you back
people up against a wall with nothing to lose, they lose it. There aren't
enough law enforcement or national guard to stop what can turn ugly in
places like LA with 14 million people crammed into a very small area.
- Bring in the military? That is nothing more than inviting
a totalitarian crackdown.
- On May 29, 1994, veteran Marines of Somalia, Panama or
Haiti were given what is now called the "Twenty Nine Palms Survey";
location of the base where that questionnaire was given. Active duty were
ask 40 questions; here are two:
- 1. Do you agree or disagree that you are a UN fighting
- 2. If Congress passed a law that said Americans could
only own hunting type rifles and had to turn in all other guns, would you
fire on an American who refused to give up their gun?
- A sickening 25% said they would shoot their fellow Americans.
That was a test run. In 1995 & 1996, it was given to Air Force personnel.
- That still left a substantial number who wouldn't, but
what would the numbers be today? More? Less?
- Over the past two decades we have seen unconstitutional
"federal" alphabet soup agencies pass more and more regulations
against Americans so you can't wake up in the morning anymore without breaking
some "law". A recent example:
- Local sheriff defends farmer from FDA intrusion
- "Brad Rogers, Sheriff of Elkhart County, Indiana,
is withstanding FDA bureaucrats who are harassing citizens in his county.
The U.S. Justice Department has withdrawn its subpoena of Indiana raw dairy
farmer Richard Hochstetler to appear before a federal grand jury.
- "He was scheduled to testify tomorrow in Detroit,
in connection with an outbreak of illnesses linked by public health officials,
including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, to the milk of his Forest
Grove Dairy. But yesterday he received a certified letter saying that his
subpoena was being withdrawn.
- "The withdrawal came after Roger's Sheriff's Department
told the FDA to back off: He wrote two letters to the Justice Department
warning it not to conduct inspections of Hochstetler's farm without a warrant
from a local judge. In the process, he got into a debate over the limits
of federal power and the U.S. Constitution with the Justice Department's
Goldstein. Earlier this month, Rogers emailed Goldstein that there had
been "a number of inspections and attempted inspections on (Hochstetler's)
farm" He warned that "any further attempts to inspect this farm
without a warrant signed by a local judge, based on probable cause, will
result in Federal inspectors' removal or arrest for trespassing by my officers
- Where does the Federal Death Administration (FDA) derive
its jurisdiction? So few know, but jurisdiction is everything. Sheriff
Gil Gilbertson in Josephine County, Oregon knows. The citizens in his county
are very lucky to have him as their sheriff.
- Unraveling Federal Jurisdiction within a State (11-08-11)
- Should federal dragoons or the military come stomping
into Josephine County, who will stand behind Sheriff Gilbertson?
- Sheriffs Stand Tall for the Constitution
- Yreka, California - "On October 22, 2011, Defend
Rural America - a gathering of people from across many western states -
was held at the Siskiyou County Fairgrounds. This event featured the film
debut of Kirk MacKenzie's documentary of the Klamath River Basin. The film
also highlighted government abuse of Ranchers, Recreators and many other
citizens. In attendance was Siskiyou County Sheriff, John Lopey and seven
other elected sheriffs from Oregon and California."
- Should federal dragoons or the military come stomping
into the counties of those sheriffs, who still stand behind them? Not to
pick a fight or start a war, but to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Remember:
no where in the Constitution is the word sheriff mentioned and in fact,
efforts have been undertaken over the decades to
get rid of sheriffs in some counties all together. That cannot happen
with the constitutional militia, nor can Congress or the Judiciary "dispense"
- "By definition, "the security of a free State"
is "homeland security" (the "homeland" being, not simply
a geographical area, but a special political conception rooted in freedom).
The Amendment describes "[a] well regulated Militia" as "necessary"
(not simply useful) for such "security". And the Amendment singles
out "the right of the people to keep and bear Arms" as so important
to the existence of such a "Militia" that "the right * *
* shall not be infringed". Therefore, the fundamental constitutional
institution of "homeland security" must be "[a] well regulated
Militia" based upon "the right of the people to keep and bear
- "Perhaps more importantly, the body of the Constitution
itself is not silent on this matter, either. To be sure, the Constitution
does not create any "well regulated Militia". It delegates no
power to Congress to "raise and support" (as with an army), to
"provide and maintain" (as with a navy), or in any other words
to fashion from whole cloth any "well regulated Militia". And
it does not even define what constitutes such a Militia. That is because
it did not have to: In the late 1700s, every adult American knew that "well
regulated Militia" had existed in the Colonies and independent States
from the mid-1600s, and were established in every State of the Union even
as the Constitution was being drafted and ratified. For that reason, the
Constitution simply acknowledged "the Militia of the several States"
as already in existence, adopted and incorporated them according to the
historical legal principles by which they had long and even then operated,
and thereby perpetuated them in that form. See Article I, Section 8, Clauses
15 and 16; and Article II, Section 2, Clause 1." Dr. Edwin Vieira
- A new effort is underway, The
County Sheriff Project, spearheaded by a great American warrior, former
Sheriff Richard Mack:
- "The bottom line answer is your county sheriff.
Ultimately, he is the one who will decide what is and what is not enforced
in your county. He has the authority and is oath bound duty to interpose
himself on your behalf to protect you from all enemies, both foreign
and domestic. He is the people's protector.
- "But the county sheriffs cannot do this alone. They
need training, education, and support. To this end, I have helped form
the CSPOA or the Constitutional
Sheriffs and Peace Officer Association. And, one of our first projects
is national convention of up to 200 county sheriffs, targeted to convene
in January 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada. We can free America now, one county
at a time, with the leadership of one county sheriff at a time."
- But, who will stand behind that one sheriff? Two, three,
or in a larger county, 20 deputies? With the constitutional militia authorized
by state statute, the governor then has the power to call them up to assist law
enforcement for many reasons.
- The reason I ask the questions I have throughout this
two part column, I hope, has become apparent. The constitutional militia
is your duty. The state legislatures must reconstitute them to remain free
states and for homeland security. While gun groups like the NRA have done
nothing to make this a reality, I am wondering where are all the men who
complain so loudly?
- Certainly huge numbers of many men and women have stepped
forward to fight for our freedom and liberty in all 50 states, but it's
not enough. We're being buried. Everyday its something new out of DC and
voting out the old scoundrels hasn't done a thing to stop the harassment
of citizens within the states of the Union. Alphabet soup agencies just
spit in Congress' face and they take it.
- The federal dragoons and unconstitutional alphabet soup
agencies continue to harass Americans on a daily basis. Farmers for things
like raw milk, which is totally absurd. Doctors who have the cures for
many types of cancer being driven into bankruptcy fighting the federal
machine so the big pharmaceutical companies and cancer foundations can
continue milking Americans for billions of dollars while killing them.
There's no money in the cure, only the treatment.
- The effort to educate state legislators regarding nullification
has risen across this country, which is great. But, the evil doers who
lust for power and whose only goal is to reduce us to shackled slaves for
their own interests never rest and as long as the only obstacle in their
path is a county sheriff, they arrogantly believe they can continue to
tell them as well as state legislatures to drop dead.
- How many more NDAAs will it take before men and women
in this country understand the power of the purse and sword?
- All the columns, talking, moaning, groaning and big talk
is NOT going to turn things around and send a clear message to the U.S.
Congress: We understand jurisdiction. We know the Federal Department of
Education, the EPA and other cabinets and agencies are unconstitutional
and we're tired of being pushed around by them. Tired of small businesses
being buried in rules and regulations by agencies that have no legal authority
to even exist.
- None of it will happen unless YOU do as I have done: Get
educated on the real constitutional militia and then get in the face of
your state representative and senator to write the statute revitalizing
the militia in your state. Tune out useful fools like this author:
- Arizona Passes Private Militia Bill
- "Arizona is in the process of legitimating the Ku
Klux Klan with the euphemistic creation of "Arizona State Guard"
giving tacit approval to private militias' nativism. We might expect these
Nazi Brown Shirts to dehumanize Hispanics without being held responsible
to the United States Government. It sounds like there needs to be a legal
infrastructure put in place to garner billions in law suits from KKK atrocities."
And this one:
- Arizona Passes Private Militia Bill
- "It is no surprise that nativists back this private
militia bill. And so far very little has been disclosed concerning what,
if any, accountability these private militias will have. For example,
do these private militias have to abide by civil rights laws? What about
the Bill of Rights? The quick answer is of course no - that is precisely
why they have been created."
- Unparalleled ignorance and stupidity.
- The Arizona State Legislature passed
a bill which was signed into law: "Gov. Jan Brewer has signed
a bill creating a state militia that she could deploy at any time, and
for any reason. The bill, SB1495, creates a volunteer state militia, separate
and apart from the National Guard." (April 28, 2011).
- Unfortunately, and I don't know if it's changed, at that
time there was no command structure in place. Here
is the text. With all due respect to the legislators who did get
it passed, I sincerely wish they would have contacted Dr. Vieira about
writing a statute for the real constitutional militia.
- As I said, only your state reps and senators can make
this happen. If you have a state representative or senator who has checked
his manhood at the door or if a female hiding behind her skirts, they should
be the ones run out of office in November 2012. I respectfully urge you
to listen to Dr. Vieira and learn about the history of the constitutional
militia and why it is so important we press this with the greatest urgency
as the state legislatures go back into session next week:
Vieira, the Militia and the Constitution (4 parts)
- You can read his outstanding book, Constitutional Homeland
Security: A Call for Americans to Revitalize the Militia of the Several
States. Volume I, The Nation in Arms, by ordering it directly from him;
$20.00. If you live in Virginia, add 5% sales tax. Dr. Edwin Vieira, 52

- His scholarly and highly detailed columns are archived here.
As you can see by scrolling down the list, he has written many on the constitutional
- The other must have is the 4 CD set, The Purse and Sword by
Dr. Edwin Vieira:
- "This seminar featuring Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr. is
the single greatest presentation regarding the Constitutional remedies
and powers available to both the people and the national government to
deal with our economy and homeland security challenges. Dr. Vieira presents
his "visual Constitution" to make plainly clear what should and
must be done for our nation to deal with these present and ever-increasing
- If money is tight, share the cost with a few friends.
Watch it and then try to get an appointment with your state representative
and hand deliver a copy. Ask him/her to watch it. If you can afford it,
buy a second set and get it to your county sheriff.
- Talk about homeland security and all the issues raised.
We are under attack by every alphabet soup agency out of DC and the vermin
in the U.S. Congress. Educate and motivate. This is a priority issue as
I have said so many times, yet I see absolutely nothing happening from
a single state legislature (other than Arizona). Why? Because not enough
patriots have made it an issue by the tens of thousands. All I continue
to see is more emails about more gun grabbing laws, whining and big talk
backed up by nothing. Heavens, there are still gun owners out there who
absolutely believe the Second Amendment was put in the Bill of Rights so
they can hunt deer!
- I also highly recommend: Samuel
Adams - Father of the American Revolution by Mark Puls. Adams
didn't just sit around and bellyache like the sissies and perfumed princes
occupying this country while they guzzle brew in front of some game on
the boob tube.

ground. Thank you.
