Note: Due to the severity of the plural-crisis in our day and in our time, this post interrupts our continued study of the ‘Commerce Clause.’ It is to also, to implore you the reader to stay posted here and to bring others. This blog is not being read by sufficient numbers! It is not getting out!  This information is crucial for anyone and everyone IF, you really want to not just see change you can believe in, but to affect change! MayWE bound, not by fear, but by the mutual goals of WE the People!

Walk1

Are WE watchers, watching all that goes on all around us? Are WEwhistles that blow, signaling the times and places and persons of interest or that alarm others? Are WE waiters, waiting for others to move or do WE wait on them to move?  Are WE wakers that arise early, and decide that if WE are awake, everyone else should be as well? Are WE walkers, people that move through life? What are WE?

Walk2Do WE watch the times and places and things and people all around us? Do WE watch seconds tick away from our finite lives?

To be fair, there are times and people which provide a service to the rest ofUS that watch; are watchdogs of the times, places, people and things affecting and effecting all our lives,  separately and collectively.

Walk3

Are WE whistles that blow signaling the times and places and persons of interest or that alarm others?

To be fair, there are times and people which provide a service to the rest of US that blow these whistles; are whistle blowers alarming and informing us of what otherwise may remain hidden, unknown and uninterrupted.

Walk4

Are WE waiters, waiting for others to move or do WE wait on them to move?

To be fair, there are times and people which provide a service to the rest ofUS that wait for US or upon US. There are times WE just must wait on or wait for the right moment, the right person or the right thing.

Walk5

Are WE wakers (those awake) that arise early, and decide that if WE are awake, everyone else should be as well?

To be fair, there are times and people which provide a service to the rest of US, waking us up from the slumber of sleep, apathy and ignorance.

Walk6Are WE walkers, people that move through life? Are WE watchers, whistles, waiters and wakers or doWE walk and move forward? What are WE?

To be fair, a walker is awake and can awaken others. They wait on and they wait for people, places and things, but while they wait, they walk. A walker is a whistle to inform and alarm others they meet while walking. Walkers watch the times, places, people and things of life while they walk.

With no disrespect intended or implied to those that are deaf, dumb (without speech), blind or lame (unable to walk or that walk with limitations), often the deaf, dumb, blind and lame –  hear, speak, see and walk far better, than those with no physical limitations.

There are none so blind than those which refuse to see. There are none so deaf than those who will not hear. There are none so dumb than those who decline to speak when it is in their power and their responsibility to do so. There are none so lame than those who will not walk.

Be the change You can believe in. Watch, whistle, wait and wake while you WALK!

The Wisdom of WE

Due to the severity of the plural-crisis in our day and in our time, this post interrupts our continued study of the ‘Commerce Clause.’ It is to also, commemorate the unity WE the people were bound by, on September 12th, 2001. May we continue to be so bound, not by fear, but by the mutual goals of WE the People!

The following are a series of my edited ‘Tweets,’ posted in succession in the early morning hours of September 12, 2009, on Twitter – http://twitter.com/Dahni1

WEthePeople

Problem (thesis) + Fear (antithesis) = Solution is the government? In another way of stating this: Problem + Reaction = Solution. This is a definition of Hegelian Dialectic.

Have or create a crisis/problem – React with fear – Then the Government is the solver or the provider of the solution, but the problem/crisis and the promotion of fear and the solver of the solution (the government), are all, one and the same!

Things = to the same thing are = 2 each other.

Our problems/fears are removed when WE remove the corruption in government. WE must stack the government with those that will perform to do the will of WE the people, or perhaps there is a similar solution?

A 2-party system WE think is choice, is really dividing US and pushing agendas which take away OUR freedoms – Problem + Reaction = Solution

OUR true freedom lies in the liberty of personal initiative, independent thought and personal responsibility.

The legal corporation of the United States of America needs to be dissolved and WE need to return to the sovereignty intended by our founding founders.

Every American Citizen needs to understand what ‘Legal Fiction,’ is!” There exists, 2 USA’s and 100 states. One of these groups  is legal fiction. WE are living in ‘The Matrix.! Do WE take the red pill or the blue pill? How far down the rabbit hole do WE want to fall?

Awake – arise from the slumber and sleep of deception – THIS IS OUR TIME!

Create a crisis – scare people – then only government can come to the rescue? Rubbish!!!!

WE need to replace ALL politicians from the local, state & National level, with citizens under contract, for a limited term of service and have a ‘farm’ team to replace them, if they cannot discharge their duties or are in breach of contract. Right, like that’s going to happen? There is an more simple solution!

Who holds the responsibility 4 U & I? Who has the power to affect OUR lives?

Power corrupts!

To make informed decisions, WE need accurate information. If the Internet is a “sewer of misinformation,” according to Tom Friedman, what then, is the mass media?

If the Internet is a “sewer” and mass media does not provide accurate information, then they are not merely biased – they are the suppressors of information.

What is one thing dictators do to control people? Answer: Suppress or control information. The mass media in the USA for the most part, is guilty of this!

The 14th amendment to the Constitution describes a citizen, unintended by the original Constitution and is “legal fiction.”

While the un-civil war was taking place in he 1800’s and the nation was divided and distracted, “legal fiction” created another USA with states having the same names. This new “legal fiction” USA, had jurisdiction over these same named “legal fiction” states. In 1863 all the states became districts under the jursidiction of the Federal government and the president. This jurisdiction became a legal corporation with the seat or center of the corporation residing in the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.) in 1871. NO PRESIDENT (democrat or republican), since Abraham Lincoln, or congress or Supreme Court, HAS EVER RESCINDED THIS ORDER, REPEALED IT OR OVERTURNED IT!

Question Everything and Everyone and question boldly! Take a stand for something or fall for everything.

Always follow the money!

Remember – it is NOT US against them, or each other! It is WE the people! This is OUR country.

If WE were born in a state in the U.S.A. that was here prior to 1861 as were our forefathers, we are sovereign citizens of that state.

Sovereignty was promised to our forefathers and their posterity (to  you and I), in the Declaration of Independence and the original Constitution of the United States of America.

Today in courts of law, there are rights & privileges. Rights belong to the people – privileges are given by the state. Courts have declared that they have no responsibility to inform us of our rights or to protect them.

Only the belligerent may demand their constitutional rights!

WE can change if we want to, as soon as right NOW and in the next election year.

WE can legally write-in anyone we want! WE landowners can legally have our votes recorded and placed into the public records! Why would WE want to do that? The answer coming soon!

Would a third party succeed? Such a thing has NEVER worked, but could it? Whenever WE make up our mind, IT COULD BE DONE! But there is an easier way! The answer is coming soon!

Thirteen original colonies despite their several differences, unanimously declared on legal grounds, separation from tyranny and to that end, pledged their “lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.”

Only 10-13% of the population of 13 original colonies fought in the Revolutionary War in the 1700’s. Most were untrained, undisciplined and without the adequate resources to fight or to often, even survive! Yet these 13 little colonies defeated the greatest military power of the day. Oh, what can be done when there is WILL and WE make up OUR minds!!!

Power corrupts – Location does not change a heart whether it is in China or the USA. Some people always seek power, no matter where they are.

Power seekers have had real problems with the balance of power system our government was founded upon, but…

…throughout our history, the executive has tried to legislate and control the judiciary…

…the judiciary has tried to legislate and INTERPRET the law…

…the legislative have tried to execute and influence the judiciary…

…lobbyists & business have always sought to influence.

Politics instead of it being the duty to serve for the rights afforded to all, has become the career path of the privileged few!

When a politician no longer listens to, cares for, or fears (respects), the will of his or her constituents, they are NOT a servant of WE the People!

What makes us different from all other species of animals upon this planet, lie in our ability to survive TOGETHER!

Any government which does not promote such togetherness by liberty and freedom is the enemy of the PEOPLE.

WE who have the ability (even knowledge is an ability), to change such evil which threaten OUR survival, have the responsibility to change!

What are WE – A Democracy or a Republic?

A democracy is majority rule and is destructive of liberty because there is no law to prevent the majority from trampling individual rights.

A republic grants limited authority and is derived through election by the people of those best fitted to represent them and to protect the rights of all people.

Ask not what our country can do for us, or what WE can do for our country, but ask what WE can do, for one another…

…that a country of the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE and for the PEOPLE, may not perish, but prosper and shine out, unto the entire world!

If WE meet it is WE that must decide, shall WE meet as enemies or shall we meet as friends?

My rights as a sovereign citizen are equal to my responsibility to protect your sovereign citizen rights. I may by free choice and by my individual ability do more, but I CANNOT DO LESS!

Want to change what cannot be seen, for what WE can see, in OUR lifetimes?

Next Time: What are WE?

Check out the other blogs listed to the right. Come often. Bring others. Get involved. Do something. Even if it is just leaving a comment, that’s doing something. But don’t bother in telling me how stupid I am, this won’t work or that you hate my guts and things like that. Been there, done that and heard that all before and then some. Be original. Be different.

Ask not what your country can do for you

or what you can do for your country,

but what can WE do for each other!”

The Commerce Clause – part 1 of 4

I am sorry it has been so long since my last post, but I had a photo shoot in Wisconsin and came down with perhaps a triple-whammy. It started as an upper respiratory infection, then perhaps the flu and I am just recently getting my strength back and recovering from bronchitis.

Just to refresh, you might want to re-read the previous post – Preparation for The Commerce Clause

HOW can WE the People regain control of Our right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?” WE have been delving into what won’t work to get to what will. So far on the list:

The List (simplified)

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

2.   The 9/12 Project?

3.   Challenge ‘The Commerce Clause’? – This is what is WE are working on.

Previously WE looked into a preview and a preparation.

Today – ‘The Commerce Clause’ – part 1 of 4

CommereceClause1

Oh those fancy-smancy, funky, funny founding fathers, with their knee-high stockings and powdered wigs, sprayed with sugar water to hold them in place! What could they possibly know about government?

Oh how un-progressive and so not with it. The audacity of suggesting a balance of power! How un-monarchy and so un-tyrannical they were to suggest separate branches of government – an executive, legislative and a judiciary branch!

No sooner had the Revolutionary War ended and the colonies had miraculously obtained independence from one king, many wanted General George Washington to be their first king of the freed colonies. How dare he respectfully decline the offer!

By the time the U.S. Constitution was written, many peeved politicians (executives & legislators) and judges (judiciary), were already trying to figure out loopholes or ways around this balance of power thing.

Many are familiar with part or parts of the following quotation, but few understand when it was written, its context or by whom it was written:

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (aka) Baron Acton or  Lord Acton  (1834–1902),  was an English historian and moralist. He took great interest in the United States and its structure for protecting individual liberties. During the War Between the States, he sided specifically with the Confederacy, for their defense of State’s rights.

In 1870 Pope Pius IX promulgated the Roman Catholic dogma of papal infallibility. Lord Acton went to Rome with all his influence to try and stop it. In a letter dated April 1887, he wrote the scholar and ecclesiastic Mandell Creighton:

“I cannot accept your canon that we are to judge Pope and King unlike other men with a favourable presumption that they did no wrong. If there is any presumption, it is the other way, against the holders of power, increasing as the power increases. Historic responsibility has to make up for the want of legal responsibility. Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority: still more when you super-add the tendency or certainty of corruption by full authority. There is no worse heresy than the fact that the office sanctifies the holder of it.”

1887 is also noteworthy as it was the year the ‘Commerce Clause’ (our subject here), for about the first time since its inception, was called in question. Scholars, such as Robert H. Bork and Daniel E. Troy, argue that prior to 1887, the Commerce Clause was rarely invoked by Congress, and thus a broad interpretation of the word “commerce” was clearly never intended by the Founders. In support of this claim, they argue that the word “commerce”, as used in the Constitutional Convention and the Federalist Papers, can be substituted with either “trade” or “exchange” interchangeably while preserving the meaning of the statements.

They also point to Madison’s statement in an 1828 letter that the

“Constitution vests in Congress expressly…the power to regulate trade.”

U.S. Constitution

Section 8.

Article I, Section 8, Clause 3:

[The Congress shall have power] To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;

To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

‘The Commerce Clause is an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3). The clause states that Congress has the power to regulate commerce with foreign nations, among the states, and with the Native American tribes. Courts and commentators have tended to discuss each of these three areas of commerce as a separate power granted to the Congress of the United States. It is common to see the Commerce Clause referred to as “the Foreign Commerce Clause“, “the Interstate Commerce Clause“, and “the Indian Commerce Clause“, each of which refers to a different application of the same single sentence in the Constitution.

Dispute exists as to the range of powers granted to Congress by the Commerce Clause. As noted below, the clause is often paired with the Necessary and Proper Clause, the combination used to take a broad, expansive perspective of these powers. Many strict constitutionalists deny that this is the proper application of the Commerce Clause.

Examining contemporaneous dictionaries does not neatly resolve the matter. For instance, the 1792 edition of Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary of the English Language defines the noun “commerce” narrowly as “[e]xchange of one thing for another; interchange of any thing; trade; traffick”, but it defines the corresponding verb “to commerce” more broadly as “[t]o hold intercourse”. The word “intercourse” also had a different and wider meaning back in 1792 than it does now.

The following is taken from the Supreme Court’s own website:

The landmark case which set a precedent was: Docket No.: 59

Petitioner:  Wickard VS. Respondent: Filburn  Decided By:  Stone Court (1942-1943)  Opinion:  317 U.S. 111 (1942)

Argued:  Tuesday, October 13, 1942  Decided:  Monday, November 9, 1942

Facts of the Case:

Filburn was a small farmer in Ohio. He was given a wheat acreage allotment of 11.1 acres under a Department of Agriculture directive which authorized the government to set production quotas for wheat. Filburn harvested nearly 12 acres of wheat above his allotment. He claimed that he wanted the wheat for use on his farm, including feed for his poultry and livestock. Filburn was penalized. He argued that the excess wheat was unrelated to commerce since he grew it for his own use.[and on his own property – emphasis added]

Question:

Is the amendment subjecting Filburn to acreage restrictions in violation of the Constitution because Congress has no power to regulate activities local in nature?

Conclusion:

According to Filburn, the act regulated production and consumption, which are local in character. The rule laid down by Justice Jackson is that even if an activity is local and not regarded as commerce, “it may still, whatever its nature, be reached by Congress if it exerts a substantial economic effect on interstate commerce, and this irrespective of whether such effect is what might at some earlier time have been defined as ‘direct’ or ‘indirect.’[1]

With little press coverage and almost no one knowing about it, in May of 2009, Montana became the first of several states to recently challenge the century old ‘doctored’ Commerce Claus. The governor of Montana wanted the courts to hear it and basically said if they don’t like it, Montana would secede from the union. Montana being so small in population was uninteresting to overall press coverage. Utah followed and they too, being small in numbers of people, seemed unimportant. Then Texas introduced a similar bill and all of sudden, people started paying attention. Tennessee was on the horizon.

What appears to center on gun laws, Gary Marbut, president of the Montana Sports Shooting Association and author of the Montana bill said, “Guns are the object, but states’ rights are the subject.”

Indeed Montana is seeking a court challenge which is the point of the bill, but alone, Montana has little chance of being heard or if heard, of ever prevailing.

“In effect, Montana‘s trying to turn back the clock to pre-New Deal times, or even pre-Civil War times,” said.Mr Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

But all total, about 30 states are considering state sovereignty laws. Where the public cry is loud, the courts have a tendency to hear.

“What’s going on is that people all over the country have decided, ‘Enough is enough,” said Kevin Gutzman, a professor at Western Connecticut State University and the author of ‘Who Killed the Constitution?’ “This is supposed to be a federal system, but instead Congress seems to think it can legislate anything it wants.”

Even so, gun-control groups have blasted the law. Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, called it “wrong from the constitutional side and wrong from the policy side.”

“The courts do pay attention to something they call ’emerging consensus.’ It means the natives are getting more than restless. Hopefully, because there are so many clones of the Montana Firearms Freedom Act being introduced in other states, the courts will recognize this as an emerging consensus.”

Gary Marbut, president of the Montana Sports Shooting Association

and author of the Montana bill

Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence said that the courts were unlikely to side with Montana, describing the Interstate Commerce Clause as “settled federal law.”

If the courts are unlikely to favor Montana, why would they side with any of the other states individually or collectively? If they do heed an ‘emerging consensus,’ what must be done to change “settled federal law?”

For one thing, an overwhelming majority of the Supreme Court would need to be willing to overturn over a century of rulings from their own court. Let’s say that this is possible though highly improbable. Those presenting the case(s) would need to have their statutory (their legalese or legal speak), all in order. In order for that to happen, every presenter through verbal argument or legal writ would have to each not only be just attorneys, but specialists in Constitutional Law. Go state by state and see for yourself. Just how many law schools in the country have any requirements for any credits to graduate, required in Constitutional Law? The answer is very, very few!

OK, let’s really get far-fetched here and say this assembly of attorneys all graduated from the right schools and are all specialists in Constitutional Law, then what? Every single one of them would need to be exact clones of the fictional characters of Perry Mason and Monk, having NEVER LOST A CASE! Now multiply the numbers of states necessary for the Supreme Court to pay attention to an ‘emerging consensus’ X the numbers of perfect arguments and perfect legal writs and the attorneys that have never lost a case. It becomes if not impossible, the odds of winning are astronomical!!!

And then after all of that, just like Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said, it would still be, “wrong from the constitutional side and wrong from the policy side.

Why would this be so? In order to understand this we need to understand what else was going on in the country in 1942 when the Wickard v. Filburn case was decided, granting more control to the Federal government, by interpreting the Commerce Clause as the Supreme Court did.

This is a tawdry tale of usurpation, jurisdiction and control. It is hidden like the Matrix or like Alice’s tales in Wonderland. The most astonishing thing of all is that it is all legal (fiction), and out in the open for anyone to see.

What may seem as insurmountable odds in regaining control of our liberties may appear hopeless, but there is an answer! Stay tuned here as we continue.

Preparation for: 'The Commerce Clause’

HOW can WE the People regain control of Our right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?Last time, WE saw a preview of why challenging ‘The Commerce ClauseWon’t Work.  So far:

The List (simplified)

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

2.   The 9.12 Project?

Next on the list is:

3.   Challenge ‘The Commerce Clause’?

This is just preparation for what is to come. Previously, WE looked at a ‘Preview of What is to come.’ And now, instead of looking into the actual ‘Commerce Clause, WE are to look at a preparation? It may appear as if WE are being stalled to allow for more time or even led astray, but neither is the case. And it is certainly not a teaser to increase interest in the subject.

In the ‘Preview’ WE had two assignments:

1. Read the U.S. Constitution – Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3. This is, ‘The Commerce Clause.’

2. Rent, purchase or re-watch the 1999 sci-fi movie, ‘The Matrix.’

The first assignment would provide a clear definition so that WE are on the same page about the ‘The Commerce Clause.’ The 2nd assignment would allow us to view or revisit a horrifying, but fictional account of a future.

This ‘preparation’ has additional assignments, to prepare US for what is to come. But first, some questions. WE have seen the following before.

Have you ever felt that something just didn’t seem right, but you just couldn’t quite put your finger on it or explain it? Have you ever felt like our own government has behaved or is behaving unconstitutionally? Have you ever wondered how they got so much power? And IF WE do see this and feel this way, do WE feel powerless to do anything about it?

This entire blog is dedicated to empowering WE the People, but before WE can do anything about changing anything, WE need to be able to see what needs to be changed!

In laying out this subject to others, resistance has been encountered. Personally, these views have been countered with the following (among others):

*It’s not the real world * Its way far right, off the charts of even from and for right wing thinkers

* It smacks of the John Birch Society * I have fallen off the deep end and etc.

With regards to our system of government, each of US have grown up believing that the real world WE live in, is The United States of America; that WE had a formal declaration of independence from England in 1776, and that WE have a constitution that guarantees and protects the rights of the states and of the individual. The problem with these things basically comes down to this, WE just think WE have them, but WE really don’t! This may all look, sound, smell, taste and feel like the United States of America, but it is not what WE were founded upon and intended to be. The bulk of this deception started back in the 1800’s and for the past 200 + years, history has been re-written. This brings us back to one of our assignment from the ‘preview,’ to view or review the movie, ‘The Matrix.’

In the Matrix, a metaphor is used and Morpheus (named after the Greek god of dreams and sleep) says to Neo, “How far down the rabbit hole do you want to go.”

Preparation1This is a reference to ‘Alice‘s Adventures in Wonderland,’ a novel written by Lewis Carroll in 1865. Mark this specific year in history, because WE will see it again. But anyway, the story tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit-hole into a fantasy world.

Do you remember the magazine for kids called Highlights® ? Since 1946 they have been around and are still going strong. One of the things I recall was their Hidden Pictures® like the one to follow.

Preparation2

Find the hidden pictures: heart, comb, crown, eagle’s head, feather, spoon, banana, paper clip, cup, saucer, kite, tooth brush, wristwatch, saw and an artist’s brush

(hint – look at the picture upside down)

The point of this image is that the information to be viewed in the ‘Commerce Clause’ is not made up or fictitious. It is part of the true picture, it’s just hidden. The question is, do we really want to look; do we really want to see?

Preparation3In 1992, the movie, ‘A Few Good Men,’ was released. In this dramatic courtroom thriller, Lt. Daniel Kaffee, (Tom Cruise) a Navy lawyer, defends two Marines who have been accused of murdering a colleague. The base commander, Colonel Jessup (Jack Nicholson) is trying to cover-up the whole thing. At the end of the movie there is a heated exchange between the two men. Kaffee repeatedly demands an answer from Jessup who is extremely agitated.

“What do you want?”

JESSEP

“I want the truth!”

KAFFEE

“You can’t handle the truth!”

JESSEP

Can WE handle the truth?  The reactions to the eventual post, ‘The Commerce Clause,’ are already known. If one really looks to uncover the hidden pictures, these reactions are:

1. You are part of the secrecy (you work for the system, have your livelihood etc. from the system), and do not want it revealed.

2. You will refuse to believe it

3. You will be too frightened  or won’t know what if anything, can be done about it

4. You are grateful to have the ‘Matrix’ revealed; the rabbit hole exposed, the truth made known, and to see the hidden pictures.

True journalism has 3 parts: report the news, investigation of important news and editorials (opinions). True journalism does not make or create the news, or tell us what to think or feel. This is what editorials attempt to do. And this is as far as journalism is supposed to go. But this entire blog is dedicated to empowering WE the People, not with what to think, but what WE can do and How WE can affect change!

Our assignment for the next time is to look up some definitions:

1.   ‘Legal fiction’

2.   Marshall Law

3.   Eminent domain

Understanding these definitions will prepare us. The last question is, do we take the blue pill or the red pill?

Preparation4

In the movie ‘The Matrix,’ Morpheus offered Neo a choice. WE the People have a choice.

WE can take the blue pill and everyone WE love and everything that WE have built our lives upon, remains the same. The blue pill keeps us in the Matrix, in the land of Oz, down the rabbit hole in Wonderland and makes us part of the problem. WE would just continue to be “Useful Idiots,” which is what Stalin called westerners that parroted the false successes of communism. Take the blue pill and WE just allow the system to continue.

Take the red pill and the  only promise is the truth.  But if WE take the red pill, we will see the hidden pictures. And then, IF WE are willing, WE can change the picture!

Preparation5

HOW can WE the People regain control of Our right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?Last time, WE went into Why the 9.12 Project Won’t Work. Here is the list so far:

The List (simplified)

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

2.   The 9.12 Project?

Next on the list is:

3.   Challenge ‘The Commerce Clause’? WE are here

This is just a preview of what is to come.

Have you ever felt that something just didn’t seem right, but you just couldn’t quite put your finger on it or explain it? Have you ever felt like our own government has behaved or is behaving unconstitutionally? Have you ever wondered how they got so much power? Welcome to the Matrix!

When ‘The Commerce Clause’ is laid out in full, it will blow some minds; some will not believe it and some will resist because, they are either a part of it or they just don’t want to believe something so frightening. Have you ever heard or believed, “You can’t fight City Hall,” (referring to challenging the government)?

What you will soon read, will explain and SHOW all this and more. ‘The Commerce Clause’ will be lumped together with eminent domain, and something like Marshall Law, which was once enacted in the 1800’s and has NEVER BEEN RESCINDED BY ANY PRESIDENT SINCE!

‘The Commerce Clause’ will explain the United States 1 and 2 and States 1 and 2 (Legal Fiction). It will show 4 states which are presently challenging the Commerce Clause, and why they will all fail. Finally, ‘The Commerce Clause’ will show, WHY ANY CHALLENGE of the Commerce Clause will ultimately fail! FEAR NOT, THERE IS AN ANSWER! But before we can see what will work, we must first understand what won’t work.

While waiting you have two assignments:

1. Read the U.S. Constitution -Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3. This is, ‘The Commerce Clause.’

Clause2

Click the Image to read it online

2. Rent, purchase or re-watch the 1999 sci-fi movie, ‘The Matrix.’

Clause1

Matrix’ solution of software and Genetic Engineering?

And finally, from the 2004 movie, ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,’ the following image is from the scene on the Knight Bus, with the shrunken head –

Clause3

“Hang on it’s going to be a bumpy ride!”

Why the 9.12 Project Won’t Work

HOW can WE the People can regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?Last time WE went into Why Overthrowing the Government Won’t Work.  So far:

The List (simplified)

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias?

Today – Why The 9.12 Project Won’t Work

912Project1

On the surface, as the images show, it sounds at least interesting. The next image really captured my attention.

912Project2

Space does not allow me to show the above mosaic as a full size image, but behind the text are many pictures of people just like you and I, each one of WE the People. A great design, no question about that and the words, WE the People, tug at any heart that loves this country. But what exactly is the 9.12 Project, its 9 principles and 12 values?

Nine Principles


1. America is good.
2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me

(If you believe in just 7 of the nine principles above, WE have something in common)

12 Values


• Honesty
• Reverence
• Hope
• Thrift
• Humility
• Charity
• Sincerity
• Moderation
• Hard Work
• Courage
• Personal Responsibility
• Gratitude

The following is taken from the 9.12 Project mission statement.

“This is a non-political movement. The 9-12 Project is designed to bring us all back to the place we were on September 12, 2001. The day after America was attacked we were not obsessed with Red States, Blue States or political parties. We were united as Americans, standing together to protect the greatest nation ever created.”

912Project3

That same feeling – that commitment to country is what we are hoping to foster with this idea. We want to get everyone thinking like it is September 12th, 2001 again.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you watch the direction that America is being taken in and feel powerless to stop it?
  • Do you believe that your voice isn’t loud enough to be heard above the noise anymore?
  • Do you read the headlines everyday and feel an empty pit in your stomach…as if you’re completely alone?

If you’ve answered YES, then you’ve fallen for the Wizard of Oz lie. While the voices you hear in the distance may sound intimidating, as if they surround us from all sides—the reality is very different. Once you pull back the curtain,  you realize that there are only a few people pressing the buttons, and their voices are weak. The truth is that they don’t surround us at all.

We surround them.

At the origin of America, our Founding Fathers built this country on 28 powerful principles. These principles were culled from all over the world and from centuries of great thinkers. We have distilled the original 28 down to the 9 basic principles.

So, how do we show America what’s really behind the curtain? Read the nine simple principles. If you believe in at least seven of them, then we have something in common.”

http://theglennbeck912project.com/2009/03/24/mission-statement/

I personally was very excited about this project and not only did I decide to subscribe (for Free), I also started, ‘Fans of the 9.12 Project’ as a group on FaceBook.

Then, I discovered?

There are tabs at the top of the 9.12 Project Home page. One is called ‘Vent.” Clicking on this tab opens a new page. On that page one reads the following:

Vent:

While we believe in the First Amendment, individuals posting to this website agree to maintain a civil tone in keeping with the 9 Principles and 12 Values on which the site is based. Moderators may choose to remove comments that do otherwise and/or restrict future posting.”

In order to ‘vent,’ one needs to login or signup which takes you to another page:

http://theglennbeck912project.com/vent-11/#idc-container

or

http://intensedebate.com/signup

Not a really big deal right, but ‘vent’ is now associated with the words, ‘intense debate.’

912Project4

On Day 1 of my signing up, I scrolled through many comments posted by other users. And vent they were! Intense it was! I viewed several posts of multiple exchanges over whether it was fair to exclude others that do not believe in God. The originator seemed not to care or had forgotten that according to the mission statement they have a choice, If you believe in just 7 of the nine principles above, WE have something in common.”

Back and forth arguments continued and not just over the subject of God, but other subjects as well. People were still divided even over the principles of which the 9.12 Project was founded upon.

Still excited over the possibilities of the 9.12 Project, I started ‘Fans of the 9.12 Project’ as a group on Facebook. Why not tell my friends, family and associates about it right? Almost immediately, people signed up. It never took off and what’s worse than that, no one ever commented even after repeated requests. Now there are several groups on Facebook as offshoots of the 9.12 Project and one may be directly from them. I notified the 9.12 Project about this group and never received a response. I also made sure there were no other groups on Facebook when I set it up. Please do not misunderstand, I am not upset over the fact that the group I set up never took off and has so few members. The point is that people are quick to sign up for stuff, but slow in participating if at all or without something to vent or intensely debate. The other sad thing is that WE the People remain divided. It was unity or getting US back to 9.12.01 the 9.12 Project was purposed to do. Let’s just look back to 9.12.01 for a bit. Were WE really united then and if so, for what purpose?

People bind together for either a common goal(s) or common enemy(ies). That’s just the way it is. Unless you live in a cave, were not yet born, or among the walking dead and clueless, most everyone knows exactly where they were and what they felt on September 11, 2001. I have yet to meet anyone or to have heard about anyone in this country that reacted with the emotional response of being happy or feeling joy over what occurred on that fateful day. Most reacted with fear and horror and that is what WE the people had in common on that day. Who among us did not for sometime look to the skies at the sight and sound of an overhead plane and wonder if what WE saw and heard and felt on 9.11.01, would be repeated?

On 9.12.01 flags were flying everywhere. People went to NY city in vast numbers. Some people went to gawk and some just to feel something, even if it was horror. Most of these people were in the way of those that were honestly trying to help recover human lives or recover some order, decency, civility, compassion and to alleviate fear.

Others fueled the fires of fear over many conspiracy theories that our government was actually involved in this devastation for many secretive and ulterior motives. Such theories true or not, were not unlike that of World War II when many believed then and even now that our government allowed Pearl Harbor to be attacked, believing this would get US involved in that war.

Fear led others to suspicion and many profiled as a Muslim (whether they were or not, but just looked like one), were subject to search, seizure and inconvenience at a minimum, but also many acts of violence. Congress reluctant to become involved in Iraq became resolved. The military and multiple contractors were initiated. Then WE argued and fought among ourselves over the costs of resources and human lives as to whether or not WE should have ever been there. Those brave men and women sworn to protect us are often not even supported by US, by even something as simple as a Thank You.

Were WE united on 9.12? If so it was because of fear. Fear certainly motivates. Fear is always wrong! Self-preservation or the will to protect our families, friends, neighbors, associates, our country or even a stranger are NOT or should NOT be from a motivation to fear. Jumping in front of a speeding car to prove one is not afraid is not fearlessness, it is the actions or reactions of a fool or one incapable of mental discernment. Fear is sand in the mechanism of life, rust on wheels and zippers. It always impedes life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. WE need to be bound together by something greater than fear. WE either will rise together and stand for something greater than our own lives or we each will fall alone into the selfish fears of, me, myself and i.

The 9.12 Project professes: “This is a non-political movement.” Is that a true statement? What does the word politics mean? Where did it come from? The most common forms of the word are defined as follows:

Politics – noun (used with a singular or plural verb)

1.   The science or art of political government.

2.   The practice or profession of conducting political affairs.

3.   Political affairs: The advocated reforms have become embroiled in politics

4.   Political methods or maneuvers: We could not approve of his politics in winning passage of the bill.

5.   Political principles or opinions: We avoided discussion of religion and politics. His politics are his own affair.

6.   Use of intrigue or strategy in obtaining any position of power or control, as in business, university, etc.

7.   (initial capital letter, italics) a treatise (4th century b.c.) by Aristotle, dealing with the structure, organization, and administration of the state, esp. the city-state as known in ancient Greece.

The words politics, politician and even police are derived from the same ancient Greek word, polis. A polis was a walled city, so built to protect the people within from the enemies without. They were never built to keep people in, just the enemy (dangerous animals and dangerous peoples out). WE would be therefore, the polls or the people of the polis. Polls and polling also comes from the same Greek word. By sheer logic, just by using the words, “WE the People” in the 9.12 Project, make it a political movement.

As a political organization, a tax exempt organization, a .org, the 9.12 Project is not a political movement. It is a commercial enterprise. Notice the words theglenbeck912project.com? This is the person that started the 9.12 Project. His  newsletter icon “click here” appear throughout the site. This allows one to sign up for Glen Beck’s newsletter which is linked to glenbeck.com. After signing up, ones receives a daily newsletter delivered to the email account of your choice. It basically contains excerpts from his daily radio program. To read the full details, one needs to go to glenbeck.com. If you want sound files or other things not FREE, you have to pay for that. Also, glenbeck.com has his books, tickets, and other merchandise for sale. Now I have nothing against making money and nothing against Glen Beck per se, but theglenbeck912project is just an extension, a commercial extension of Glen Beck and all his associates and business enterprises.

As to associations, the 9.12 project is associated with Glen Beck and Glen Beck is associated with the Fox News Television Network , which is associated with, News Corporation, one of the world’s largest media conglomerates.

News corp. is associated with Rupert Murdoch, Australian born, chief executive officer, founder and principal shareholder. The portfolio of News Corp. contains Fox News, 20th Century Fox, Dow Jones (including the Wall Street Journal), the New York Times, MySpace and many other assets to numerous to list.

Many view such divergent associations as a conflict of interest, but if your business is about making money and profits, it makes perfect sense. Isn’t this why business is in business? Still, without seeing the whole, many people separate the parts.

To some, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times are liberal and biased organizations. Fox News while purporting to be ‘Fair and balanced’ and one of their programs clique is “The spin stops Here,” many people believe them to be a joke or political hacks and biased for the Republican Party. But while most newspapers and news programs are teetering on possible extinction, Fox News is on the rise. But if you are not among its ranks of supporters and believers, anything and anyone associated with Fox News as Glen Beck and the glenbeck912project.com may not be liked or even known.

Glen Beck is a self-professed commentator and not an investigative journalist. He is a self-professed Mormon and a libertarian and not a Republican Party supporter as many believe. His radio program is billed as, “a fusion of entertainment and enlightenment.”

Though much useful information can be gained from the 9.12 Project and Glen Beck deserves credit for endeavoring to pull US, WE the People together, it cannot succeed as a political movement because, as it claims, it is NOT one.

When WE cannot even agree to disagree, WE are divided. When one news organization and one political party; one group and one business is pitted against the others, WE are divided. Do WE the People prefer to have the truth and for the media to give us the truth whatever it is or do WE prefer to believe what we want to hear? If it is the  latter, then WE are divided. Then again, perhaps WE would just prefer to argue over what truth is? And if that is so, WE remain divided. WE are NOT united in fear, for it is fear that divides US!

WE the People are beyond venting and ranting and raving and intense debate. The time for debate is long past. Now is the time for action. Now is the time to become united for something greater than the sum total of our fears. Now is NOT the time to join and do nothing. Now is the time to act!

Next Time – ‘ Preview – ‘The Commerce Clause’

Check out the other blogs listed to the right. Come often. Bring others. Get involved. Do something. Even if it is just leaving a comment, that’s doing something. But don’t bother in telling me how stupid I am, this won’t work or that you hate my guts and things like that. Been there, done that and heard that all before and then some. Be original. Be different. I think no greater or more eloquent words were ever spoken about getting involved, than those by President John F. Kennedy –

“Ask not what your country can do for you,

but what you can do for your country!”

Why Overthrowing the Government Won’t Work

Today WE the People begin to explore HOW to regain control of OUR right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Today – Why Overthrowing the Government Won’t Work

MilitaryEmblems_lg

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

First 2 paragraphs & Last Sentence –

The Declaration of Independence

It must be understood that this document was founded upon the rule of law. The king of England had broken his own laws and many which went all the way back to the Magna Carta, in 1215. Of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, most of what they pledged to each other, their “lives,” “fortunes,” and “sacred honor” was lost. In signing this document, they were signing their own death warrants. They were each and all, branded as traitors by the British Empire.

If such a thing were tried today and by way of force, those implementing such aggression would be viewed as enemies of the United States. The full power of the United States would be brought to bear and quell such dissent with all means necessary. Are you, am I, prepared to lose our lives, fortunes and sacred honor?

There are many branches, departments and divisions of the United States government besides the U.S. Military that may be viewed as armed forces. These would include: The CIA, FBI, ATF, IRS and the FDA among others. Most positions held in government are NOT elected and therefore all serve, “at the pleasure of the president.” As such, this loose term could also be construed as, at the whim of the president. Those serving in such a capacity could serve no more than four years or through the second term of the president or continue through subsequent administrations, but they can also serve less. These include all cabinet members, staff and the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, among many other positions.

At present, Military service is  an ‘all volunteer force.’ But military draft can be reinstated at any time, even by such a loosely worded pretext as, “for defense of the United States.” Broad definitions exist as to what constitutes “in defense of…”

The president of the United States is the Commander and Chief of the Military. Officers of the Military, upon commission, swear to the following:

“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.”

To “support and defend the constitution” includes obeying orders directly or indirectly from their Commander and Chief, the president of the United States.

All enlisted persons except the National Guard (Army or Air), and the Coast Guard are required to take the following oath.

I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

The National Guard (Army or Air) and the Coast Guard still fall under the U.S. Military and through similar oaths as those above, their oaths  are made to the president or to the governor of the state where they serve. The Guard can be called up to active duty at anytime. At that time, their obedience shifts to the Commander and Chief, the president of the United States.

Military discipline and effectiveness is built on the foundation of obedience to orders. Recruits are taught to obey, immediately and without question, orders from their superiors, right from day-one of boot camp.

Military members who fail to obey the lawful orders of their superiors risk serious consequences. Article 90 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) makes it a crime for a military member to WILLFULLY disobey a superior commissioned officer. Article 91 makes it a crime to WILLFULLY disobey a superior Non commissioned or Warrant Officer. Article 92 makes it a crime to disobey any lawful order (the disobedience does not have to be “willful” under this article).

In fact, under Article 90, during times of war, a military member who willfully disobeys a superior commissioned officer can be sentenced to death.

Seems like pretty good motivation to obey any order you’re given, right? Nope. These articles require the obedience of LAWFUL orders. An order which is unlawful not only does not need to be obeyed, but obeying such an order can result in criminal prosecution of the one who obeys it. Military courts have long held that military members are accountable for their actions even while following orders — if the order was illegal.

However, who is to determine what is and what is not “lawful?” Is what is “lawful” determined by Uniform Code of Military Justice? It can be and is interpreted by those who are empowered to enforce it. Is what is “lawful” determined by the Constitution? It is and can be interpreted by the courts.

Though any soldier may vote in general elections, it must be understood that anyone that serves in the Military, upon execution of their freely taken oaths, they have relinquished their Constitutional rights and their Commander and Chief, the president of the United States and the Uniform Code of Military Justice takes precedence.

Federal law requires everyone who enlists or re-enlists in the Armed Forces of the United States to take the enlistment oath. The oath of enlistment into the United States Armed Forces is administered by any commissioned officer to any person enlisting or re-enlisting for a term of service into any branch of the military. The officer asks the person, or persons, to raise their right hand and repeat the oath after him. The oath is traditionally performed in front of the United States Flag and other flags, such as the state flag, military branch flag, and unit guidon may be present.

“The founding fathers recognized the relationship between any government and its citizens is at best ADVERSARIAL: individual Rights (freedoms) are inversely proportional to government power. The more power the government has, the less Rights you have. Government can’t grow in size or power except at the cost of our individual Rights and freedom. The founding fathers also realized that all governments seek to expand their powers and are therefore driven to diminish their citizen’s Rights. Hence, the Constitution was written to both limit government and maximize our individual Rights.

In truth, the American Constitution is essentially an anti-government document. The Constitution’s principle purpose is not simply to specify our individual Rights, but to shield us from the single organization that will always pose the greatest threat to those Rights.”

‘To Whom Do Constitutional Rights Belong? To The Belligerent!’

By Djacksback 3/1/09 Newsvine.com

“The privilege against self-incrimination is neither accorded to the passive resistant, nor to the person who is ignorant of his rights, nor to one indifferent thereto. It is a FIGHTING clause. It’s benefits can be retained only by sustained COMBAT. It cannot be claimed by attorney or solicitor. It is valid only when insisted upon by a BELLIGERENT claimant in person.” McAlister vs. Henkel, 201 U.S. 90, 26 S.Ct. 385, 50 L. Ed. 671; Commonwealth vs. Shaw, 4 Cush. 594, 50 Am.Dec. 813; Orum vs. State, 38 Ohio App. 171, 175 N.E. 876. “The one who is persuaded by honeyed words or moral suasion to testify or produce documents rather than make a last ditch stand, simply loses the protection. . . . He must refuse to answer or produce, and test the matter in contempt proceedings, or by habeas corpus.” [Emphasis added]

IF ONE, WHY NOT ALL?
If one of our Constitutional Rights is only available to citizens who are both knowledgeable and belligerent, how is the balance of our Rights any different?
They’re not. Fundamentally, if you don’t know your Rights, the court is under no obligation to inform you, or to protect your Rights. Even if you know your Rights, but lack the guts to fight for them, again, the court is not obligated to protect you.

Link to the complete article from which these quotes have come:

http://tinyurl.com/l4wavo

In order for a Military takeover of the government to succeed, it would by nature of the chain of command, have to be so ordered by the Commander and Chief of the Military, the president of the United States. Anyone or any persons so breaking said chain of command would at least be considered AWOL (absent without leave), and subject to Uniform Code of Military Justice. At worst, said person or persons could be branded as traitors and executed as an enemy or enemies of the United States.

If said individual or persons would appear before a military court or the U.S. Supreme Court, they would need to know their rights, be belligerent in fighting for their rights and able to argue successfully and equal to or greater, than the legal minds so empowered to enforce those laws and those rights. That is highly unlikely as most military persons are not lawyers. But if this were possible, there is still the possibility that those by way of interpretation of such laws and rights, could determine the outcome in favor of the military or the courts, and against the defendants.

A military overthrow of the government cannot succeed! But here is what will work with regards to the military.

While you and I enjoy our iPods, Internet access, writing blogs, watching television, driving where ever we would and pretty much doing all that we do in the country, every man and woman in the military has sworn an oath to defend us against all enemies foreign and domestic with their own lives, fortunes and sacred honor if required. And this, just so that we and our posterity can continue to enjoy such perhaps trivial or inconsequential things that we do in the context of the more important matters as, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

If you know someone in the military or if you see one, thank them at least. At best, help them and their families with anything they may need. What could WE the People have that is more important, than our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? What have we that we would withhold from these men and women, who protect US with often their own lives or hazard their lives on a daily basis, and sometimes, moment by moment?

These men and women represent the very best of WE the People. They consist of every sex, race, color, creed, intellect, and socioeconomic status of the United States of America. They are OUR valor, our courage, our strength, our hope and dreams. They are our Semper fidelis (Latin “always faithful”), our defenders and protectors of all WE the People hold dear. They are the preservers of WE the People for OUR posterity and  OUR continuance as a nation. As such, there is no greater source in numbers and in execution of WE the People! To understand what WE the People  truly means, ask someone, anyone in the military! To understand HOW WE the People can unite and truly become WE the People, draw this from someone, anyone that is presently serving or has ever served in the military!

If WE want to understand WE the People; if WE want to understand HOW to unite and move as 1 of WE the People and as WE the People, ask anyone in the military!!!!

Why is a New Restoration Service the Only Option?

June 18, 2009

As Jim Carey would say, “Alrighty then.”

Pull up a chair, kick your shoes off, put your feet up and sit a spell.

Might as well get comfortable!

Coffee or tea?

As promised, this will be an introduction or an overview of the 8  principle actions or ideas taking place to affect change in this country of, for and by WE the People and WHY a new restoration service, The American Eagle Service is the ONLY viable solution for success.

Before this begins, you, 1 of WE, need to ask yourself just one question. Does yours, my and our present government really reflect the will of WE the People?

I already know the answer from many people and I suspect there are many more that would cry a resounding NO!

If this is your answer, then the next question logically follows. What can you; what can I and what can WE (if anything), do about it?

I am no longer here speaking to those that have given up and are no longer interested, capable or willing to change – to serve. And I am not writing to those that would just continue to moan, weep, whine and complain, but do nothing! and I am not writing to or for those that believe government owes them anything and everything from the womb to the tomb.

WE the People have real needs and concerns and WE need real answers and solutions NOW!

There are watchdogs, whistle blowers and true journalists out there that are uncovering hidden facts of darkness, error and incompetence and bringing these to the light of day. They are needed, appreciated and should receive OUR support. You know who they are or you know who you are.

There are comics, satirists, humorists and comical commentators which provide a great deal of relief to the present stresses of all and each 1 of WE. They are needed, appreciated and should receive OUR support. You know who they are or you know who you are.

But what about the rest of US? What do WE need? What can WE do? What is being done? Do you; I and WE even care? Does our present government have too much or not enough power? If it has too much as I and many others believe, how did it get it?

Quite simply put, our present form of government has an Executive, a Legislative and a Judiciary branch, purposely designed as a system of checks and balances. Are these  in or out of balance? If they are out of balance, then here is the next question.

Are the writs and works of our founding fathers and documents, Living and Breathing or are they outdated and unworkable in our day and in our time?

To begin to understand, it all comes down to one thing and it is not freedom, but liberty. There can be no freedom unless there is liberty. So then if our liberty hangs in the balance, then so do our individual and collective freedoms. Then how has this happened? In another single word, re-written.

Though the means to restrict liberty and ultimately freedom itself are more complicated then a one word answer, it is through rewriting the Law of the Land that this has been occurring over time.

The rewriting of our laws by all branches of government and enforced primarily by the Judiciary branch, have rewritten our system of government. Of this there can be no doubt. But is this what WE the people have asked for, voted for or were even given a clear choice? If it was, did we understand the choice or was another hidden agenda buried in a mountain size document; written in legal, political and rhetorical ‘speak’ that only a genius could read and understand?

I believe this rewriting of history and interpreting the Law of the Land, center around the ‘Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution, The War Powers Act/Marshall Law, Imminent Domain, Classified information under the cover of National Security, and specific dates in the 1800’s. But mostly the cause stems from rewriting our history, hiding it from us and endeavoring to replace our republic with a corporation.

The ‘blame-game’ is over, at least here! I am not about to blame anyone, question their motives or their patriotism. This is not he said, she said, I am of this or I am of that party. This is not about dividing and conquering, it is about WE THE PEOPLE! If WE do not want what is happening in our country, it is OUR RIGHT to change all of it, which even includes the formation of a new government, if this is the will of WE the People? Our founding document, the Law of the Land, OUR Constitution affords US this right and demands our unified response!

After those brief introductory remarks… 🙂

…what are WE to do about this? What are others of WE doing about it? What are the possibilities and which of them (if any), have the greater chance of succeeding?

The List

1.   Overthrow the government by a military coup or para-military militias? This is hardly worth even listing, but it is a possibility. However, it is not recommended as many could lose their property, their honor and their lives. This was tried many years ago and most of those that pledged these things, lost those things. They were branded as traitors. One thing that must be clearly understood by all that read here is, what came to be known as The Declaration of Independence, was based on the rule and civility of law. It was the breaking of the law by the king of England that fueled the conflict known as, The Revolutionary War. Today, any revolution must be based on the rule of law. Just being angry and wanting to fight might just get you imprisoned at least and killed at worst. There must be a better way. There is!

2.   The 9/12 Project? I was very excited to take part in this. The 9/12 Project is quite possibly what led to really doing something about The American Eagle Service here. Before today, the concept was just that, a concept, me venting and not much more than that. Initially it was a new party I thought would be needed to restore our republic. Not anymore! But for background on this, you can read the original post from another blog by clicking on: Just I-Magine – The American Eagle Party Then I got some comments from others that basically all said the same things -“What are you doing about this,” or “Are you doing anything with this? Most everyone in this country know perfectly well what happened on September 11th, 2001; where they were; what they were doing and how they felt. The 9/12 Project grew out of the idea that WE the People were United for perhaps the first time in a long time, on September 12th, 2001. The 9/12 Project’s goal is to return to that unity and to keep it going. People no matter their race, color, creed, political persuasion, intellect , social and economic status will bind together for a common goal or a common enemy. I believe now, the unity on 9/12/01 was a bond formed out of fear of a common enemy. WE need more, much more than fear to unite us! WE are still very much divided. WE need to do something and now! Oh, we must have some great leader! Who am I? I am nobody, but I am 1 of WE.  That’s who I am. I have started these 6 associative posts. This is what I am doing. What are you doing? What are WE doing?

3.   Several states are challenging ‘The Commerce Clause’ under the banner of the state’s right to regulate it’s own gun control laws. They seek to be heard by the courts and ultimately the United States Supreme Court. If somehow the previous decisions by the courts were overturned, this could nearly change everything in this country and would revert much of the present powers back to maybe the 1800’s. Some fear that if that happened, there would be mass hysteria, total anarchy and utter chaos. The chances of this happening is questionable for two reasons. The statutory, the legal presentations and arguments to the courts have got to be nearly perfect if not wholly perfect. And if they were, there is still the chance that The Supreme Court may still side with the original decisions. And why? Their opinions and their interpretations for whatever their reasons might be, that’s why.

4.   There are some which are proposing that a Constitutional Congress be convened in order to place into the Constitution the necessary changes or to change the entire rule of government. This could happen if the required number of states, call for such a convention. If  this were to happen, Congress would have to order the convention and select the delegates. Once the convention convenes, there is NO WAY TO CONTROL IT OR THE OUTCOME! WE the People must NOT call for such a convention! Be it known to all that there are those who desire to abolish the United States Constitution!

5.   Hope that the present circumstances will change and the will of WE the People will be implemented by the present party in control?

6.   Others Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People in future elections? And others Hope that they can distance themselves from their own scandals and responsibility in part, for our present troubles?

7.   Remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates. Even if noble, WE the People would still remain divided?

8.   The American Eagle Service ( I don’t care what its final name might be, I just care about its principles)? Since the beginning of this country, people have been and remain divided. Our founding fathers and their writs and works understood this and fashioned the United States Constitution which did and still could, unify our nation. The various parties and branches of government over the years, have sought to gain greater influence, control and power over the other branches. Here is a quick and simple example. If I were the president and could not get congress to go along with what I want and even if I sincerely believe it is the best thing to do, I could turn to the Judiciary Branch and try to influence them to decide the matter (interpret the law), in my favor. Many presidents have tried to ‘stack the courts’ for this very purpose. The American Eagle Service’s goal if you will, is to ‘stack’ the Executive and Legislative branches of government and replace or limit the service of the Judiciary branch. How? With candidates, appointees and elected servants properly seated, willing and able to serve for a limited period of time and all under legally binding contracts with,  WE the People. They can be placed into service for a limited time and they can be replaced for failure or for breech of contract, other circumstances which would prevent them from fulfilling their term, even while in their limited terms of service, with replacements readied. Politics would become no longer a lifetime occupation, but limited terms of service as a responsibility to WE the People with gratitude for all WE have been given. I fervently believe there are sufficient numbers of independents, disenchanted democrats; disheartened republicans and others that could change the outcome of local, state and national elections, IF WE the People will stand together, unified over not a common enemy, but a common goal. Now for all those that think this cannot happen or that there is not enough time, wait until you find out WHY it can happen and sooner than you think. STAY TUNED! The goal always was and remains, LIBERTY. Liberty to me is the freedom to succeed with what I am doing or trying to do here.  Liberty also means to me that I have the freedom to fail and fail miserably, if that is what it is to be. But I who have been given so much and have paid so little, can do nothing less than to stand for something, greater than myself. And I stand for WE the People and for LIBERTY! I encourage you to learn and understand what liberty is; what it means to you, 1 of WE and to WE the People. Take a look at this associated blog post: Our Lady Liberty – How’s She Doing? Birth of an Idea

Note: I could have listed doing nothing above or moving out of the country, but they are not viable solutions, unless you are part of the problem. 🙂

These 8 points will be individually developed in future posts here.

Check out the other blogs listed to the right. Come often. Bring others. Get involved. Do something. Even if it is just leaving a comment, that’s doing something. But don’t bother in telling me how stupid I am, this won’t work or that you hate my guts and things like that. Been there, done that and heard that all before and then some. Be original. Be different. I think no greater or more eloquent words were ever spoken about getting involved, than those by President John F. Kennedy –

“Ask not what your country can do for you,

but what you can do for your country!”

With this first post, I would like to lay before you, some initial background information. This idea grew out of my own frustrations with the political process in our country. I am not a member of any political party, unless you want to count the independents, but I don’t think such a party with that name exists. I am 55 years of youth and in all my voting years, I have never been invited to any party. 😦

Well that’s OK, I’d rather serve anyway. So I am having a service, The American Eagle Service. Maybe you have never been invited to a party like me, so I’m inviting you to serve! 🙂

It does not matter if you are some independent like me, a Democrat, a Republican or are part of some other party. All that matters is that you want to come and are willing to BYOB, (bring your own brains). I am trying to be lighthearted here, but I am really serious! To get the background on this whole idea, please visit one of my other blogs at wordpress. The title of the post is, ‘The American Eagle Party.’ It was written 8/1/08. Please take a look; give it a read and then return to this blog. Here is the link:
http://dahni.wordpress.com/2008/08/01/the-american-eagle-party/
There are six blogs (including this one), which are associated with each other and all are powered by WordPress.com They are as follows and should be viewed in the order shown.
1. Our Lady Liberty – “How’s She Doing”
http://www.OurLadyLiberty.wordpress.com
This blog is to hopefully Illuminate anyone interested, with history, information, trivia and resources about this experiment called, the United States of America. To know where we are going or desire to go, we need to understand where we have been. This is to provide the initial tools WE need to build OUR service. Background information, American History, quotes from OUR founding fathers and others that have contributed to this U.S.A. experiment, and even OUR founding documents (links), are what you can expect to find there. Illuminate!
2. An American Eagle – “When I-Magination Becomes Real”
http://www.anamericaneagle.wordpress.com/
This blog will hopefully Inspire and tell a story about The American Eagle Service becoming a reality. This is a fictional work in progress by me, shared on line. It is the story of a writer, Benjamin Thomas Silent (Ben Silent), that imagines what it would be like to see the U.S.A. return to its greatness. He shares many of his stories with his only one true friend, Kahlil Abrams. Kahlil is named after Kahlil Gibran and his mother is Muslim and his father Jewish. Conversations between Ben and Kahlil are carried on long distance over the phone. Kahlil is a successful business man living in California and Ben is a small town, homegrown Midwest man. They met in high school, became fast friends and have maintained their close relationship through their years. Each week Kahlil calls Ben and asks just one question, “what have you written?” As Ben begins to write, ‘An American Eagle,’ his friend encourages him to put it on line in a blog. Soon, the blog begins to take on a life of its own, and The American Eagle Service becomes a reality. But not before the powers that be, chase him across the country and try to stop him by any means! Inspire!
3. The American Eagle Service – You’re here
http://www.theamericaneagleservice.wordpress.com/
The American Eagle Service – Background and a repository, for the development of a new restoration service. This blog is to Initiate! It is for servants to post, ask, suggest, help, encourage and in general, to SERVE!!! Too many have been silent for too long, not believing that they have a voice or if their voice was heard that it would not matter anyway. Too many feel as if their representatives in government, do not and will not listen to the will of WE the people. Too many are afraid of losing our country, our rights and our freedoms – our LIBERTY! Too many are angry. Too many blame others and not a few, turn to violence. Too many people think we have no other choice than to hope things change. Too many have lost confidence in the media and in the dominant two-party political system. Too many of US are divided! I believe there are many and in sufficient numbers that would believe and would act and serve IF, WE had the power and a vehicle to make it happen. When WE truly get together, WE can change the course of our country; our lives and our futures and the futures of our children’s children and theirs and theirs and theirs and onward! Initiate
#4 of 6 is American Eagle News to Inform – provide news and announcements concerning WE the people
#5 of 6 is American Eagle Store to Invest – purchase stuff and to contribute to, WE the People – New Designs Now Available
#6 of 6 is 1 of WE Project to Incubate – a national project to encourage and nurture our wee little 1’s of WE  🙂

The next post to this blog will be an introduction to 8 principle ideas of how to take back control of our country. Each of 7 present ideas (most of which are already being tried), will be shared individually here in the future. Then finally, another future post will show why it is ONLY #8 (a new political service), which can truly be successful IF, WE the People, will act. Initiate!
