PART 4 of 4 FINAL

AppleEye3

I would like to be liberal; a liberal, but I CANNOT be now or in the future! I may have thought I was liberal; a liberal in the past, but I CANNOT be now or in the future!

A belief which is followed by actions where the word “liberal” has been hijacked and re-defined that in practice means something different or that it is something which it is NOT is, nothing less than, THEFT! How can anyone be set at liberty when to do so, others are enslaved? How can one’s “free” choice be really “free,” when it holds others captive? How can anyone be made free by taking from someone else? How can one be paid from funds they have not earned and that were taken from others without their permission, their will; their choice? How can anything that is bankrupt (non-existent) be given to anyone by borrowing it against the future of those that will be bound to even more lack-ah-nuttin’? How can your choice make me “free,” when it takes from others, burdens them, enslaves their futures and robs me from ever being free, to help make free, anyone else?

Today’s “liberal” is NOT free and cannot therefore, make “free,” anyone else! It is nothing more than like a carrot on a stick. The poor, brute, bridled beast keeps reaching for the promise of “freedom,” but will never taste that “freedom” nor eat of “liberty!”

Both the binder and the bound, dependent upon each other are, all in bondage!

Both the binders and the bound, dependent upon each other are, all in bondage!

So, I’m NOT liberal or a liberal! I must then be a conservative? I would like to say YES, this is true, IF by the meaning of “conserve” it would mean, “for ALL to enjoy the fruits of Liberty, for as long as possible! But, the words “conserve” and “conservative” have also, been hijacked by another political party, the Republican Party.

Poll after poll suggest that WE the People do not trust Congress and it is made up of many parties, but mostly and always and usually controlled by just 2, the Democrat and Republican parties. Only the media has just a slight edge above Congress, in these LESS THAN, UNFAVORABLE POLLS!

The facts are, WE are divided and perhaps more so now, than at any time in the history of the artist formerly known as, “The United States of America.” It seems that WE use our lives, liberties and happiness to pursue HOW to insult our political opponents like good ol’ Mer-cuns’ (Americans).

“A Pew Research Center report released this year concluded that “Republicans and Democrats are more divided along ideological lines—and partisan antipathy is deeper and more extensive—than at any point in the last two decades.” As anyone who has ever looked through comments on a political blog can attest, this polarization often translates into venomous language, with Republicans and Democrats slinging insults at each other over the partisan divide.”

“American English has a specialized vocabulary of insults based on party affiliation. For instance, a Democrat deriding a Republican might use the term wingnut, combining the notion of right-wing extremism and irrational nuttiness, or Rethuglican (Rethug for short), a blend of Republican and thug. The lexicon of Republican insults for Democrats includes moonbat, which the late William Safire traced back to libertarian blogger Perry de Havilland in the fuller form “barking moonbat”, suggesting  ideology-crazed partisans howling at the moon. Even more common than moonbat in Oxford’s tracking corpus is the schoolyard-esque slur libtard (from liberal and –tard in retard, an offensive term for a person with intellectual disabilities). Liberal neologists have gotten in on the –tard act too, but Teatard (with reference to the conservative Tea Party movement), conservatard, and Republitard have thus far failed to achieve widespread currency.”

How can anyone be “free” by insulting or putting down others? It CAN’T BE DONE! It is neither logical nor possible. Those negative terms from the chart above are NOT coming from as you would expect, little children. And they are not just coming from Mr., Mrs. & Ms. John or Patty Q. Common Public. Oh no, these words often originate with and/or are coming from our supposed servant/leaders. These insults are coming from, men and women highly educated and even financially successful (at least after they get their claws on other people’s money and resources) that are acting like, little children! Remember the Latin word, educatus? It means to lead out. To educate (“to lead out”) aligns, meshes or lines up perfectly with the words, “free” and “freedom” and page, pages (Latin liber a collection of books, hence Library) book, books and what liberal arts were supposed to be for, to make people “free!”

It is this two-party system (corrupt system), the Democrat and the Republican parties that have each and both and together, hijacked our liberty! As an expression goes…

Liberal9

…”there’s not a dime’s difference between them!”

Why a “dime?” Well, it is pretty thin and in fact, it’s not worth much; can’t buy much and is, the thinnest of all our current metal currency that presently, still, reads,

“In Congress the Media (oops sorry about that) “God” (soon to be crossed out too?) “We trust.”

This two-party is more like some big inverted V (^). Down shere,’ they look like Dumbo the Elephant and Buffo the Jackass. They’re miles apart in difference or so it seems. But way up yonder,’ there’s “not a dime’s difference between them.” Up there, they’re BFF’s and thick as thieves. Down here, we would just like them to get along and get things done. They will, if they have to, I guess? They call it, “The Compromise.”

Liberal10

“OK, today, you get the right pocket and I’ll take the left!”

Perhaps like you, I’m just an independent? No, I’m not a member of the Independent Party, just an independent. For myself anyway, I am an independent because, that’s what it says in the Declaration of Independence, the ‘apple of gold!’ This is what the Constitution, the ‘picture or frame of silver’ says. The picture or frame is, made for the apple and not the apple for the picture! And it is ALL, to protect and preserve. every single one of, WE the People! Oh, but what am I saying? The Declaration of Independence? That’s old school; just a dead and dusty parchment? And the Constitution, well, that’s just a flawed document anyway? But I’m just naive  enough, stupid enough and foolish enough to think, I’m one of, WE the People; I’m an independent. And besides all of that, I have never been invited to anyone’s party! 🙂

WE NEED TO RESET_but!

PART 3 of 4

Liberal2We heard about the unfair advantages of the 1% at the expense of or on the backs of, the 99% or the rest of us. We are told it’s the mega-n-aires’ (mega million-aires’ and mega billion-aires’) and BIG OIL, and BIG BUSINESS that have taken advantage of the ‘system’. But who wrote, writes, controls and benefits the most, from the ‘system? Who writes all the laws, enforces all the laws and interprets all the laws? The legislative, executive and judicial branches of government – POLITICIANS, that’s who! Yes, even the judicial branch has become political! Who gets to decide what their rules and regulations are? Congress. Who gets to decide when and how much to raise their own salaries and benefits; the salaries and benefits of the other branches and even if or if not that the minimum wage gets raised, for the rest of us? Congress. They ARE, the way less than the 1%, for the rest of us, the 99%!!!

forcing the breaking of the chains that bind…

under the all-inclusive warm blanket of tolerance…

Why do they do this? Why do they seem to champion everyone and every thing? Could it possibly be, to win votes and maintain their control? Why do we continue to let them do this? Could it possibly be, for the promises they made? How well can one keep a promise, when there really is NOT enough to fulfill them? And the promises are made with full knowledge that it can NOT be fully, fulfilled! Still, I guess people want to believe in magic, fairy dust, hitting the lottery and all manner of fantasies? And in practice, they pit all of us together against each other because, we must be tolerant and accommodating of all people? So what if some lose and others win? Actually, there are no winners in this model, EVERYONE LOSES something, a little or a lot!

…Liberty is smothered

…Liberty is smothered

Now along with taking from the haves and giving to the have-nots, this liberal thinking NEVER takes into consideration, what happens to those that much is taken from. It’s one thing to want to help people and to save this or that, but what are the ramifications of these choices? How do good intentions, negatively impact others? You might want to save the great white sharks, but how does this impact my right to swim in the ocean?

You might want to protect chipmunks, but how does their increased population effect the integrity of my concrete sidewalk and the crawl space underneath my porch, where they tunnel constantly and live? Well sure, I have one of those ‘Have-A-Heart’ traps. What am I supposed to do with them after, I catch them on my own property? Let them go? Then why catch them in the first place? Transfer them someplace else? Sure, allow me to force my problems onto others? Oh, and if caught, I’d get fined, for moving them in my area, more than 3 miles because, their diseases (if they have any) might be different from those over three miles away. And did I mention, most likely they will come back if left, less than five miles away? And I would have to pay for and have to have a permit to transfer them. Am I then therefore, being forced to destroy them? And if I did or do, am I forced to run the risk of being reported, for animal abuse?

Just so you know, I put myself in this position, all by myself because, we just wanted to feed the birds. Birds? Oh, so many I can’t count them and cannot afford to feed them, but once a week. I made them dependent along with the chipmunks, birds of prey, foxes and coyotes that are now attracted because of, the abundance of birdseed and birds! Apparently I, I have screwed up the entire Eco system, where we live! 🙂

But YES, your desire to help others; save stuff and your freedom of will, deprives me of mine as well as all the critters I have kept from independently, fending for themselves. I have become a horrible and despicable person just because, I like watching the birds and wanted to feed them in exchange for my enjoyment of them.  🙂

Under the banner of non-offending and political correctness…

Under the banner of non-offending and political correctness…

Oh, I should not be allowed to express my opinion, UNLESS IT AGREES WITH YOURS? I shouldn’t use the word “liberal” as if, it were a four-letter expletive? I am probably offending someone? I am not not being sensitive or politically correct?

 

…Freedom of Speech is gagged

…Freedom of Speech is gagged

Perhaps the worst thing of all, is that if they do not help or “free” or “liberate” others, the deprived and down-trodden would not be able to do this for themselves? Somewhere in the twisted mind of the liberals, they must actually believe they are better than and smarter than, those they want to help? They surely must believe that without them, others cannot raise themselves up or “free” themselves? Surely they must feel quilty that they have so much, when others have so little? Giving out of guilt especially with someone else’s money or stuff, does not sound too “freeing,” to me!

This whole B.S. robs people of their initiative, their spirit, their confidence and from ever realizing their full potential! Generation after generation are born into and enslaved to, social programs, public assistance and welfare! Month after month, people are paid not to work and are paid more than they could make on their own, without the necessary specialized skills, training and education. There is no incentive to rise up and out of bondage. Instead of a hand up, people are given an almost endless supply of hand outs. Instead of teaching people how to fish that they would never starve a lifetime, the hungry are fed a fish, for the day and day after day. That is until, the fish run out or there is no more means (money and etc.) to acquire the fish or the fish become extinct. You know, this whole things sounds like a virus. It takes and destroys everything in its path and eventually dies off itself, due to, not having anything left to destroy.

PART 2 of 4

The word “liberal” has been associated in politics with a particular political party, the Democrat Party. It has been tied to socialism. But those in the party, do not like to be referred to as socialists and prefer to use the word “progressive” or our word, “liberal.”

But as a political ideology, being a “liberal” would include social and economic theories and practices. On the surface, a “liberal” champions all those that may seem to have no voice, minorities, the poor, down-trodden, the all-forms-of-challenges, the disenfranchised and etc. This certainly sounds like me! I mean, I’m for helping people who, for what ever reasons, cannot help themselves. Sure, I’m for everyone having the same opportunities in order that every one of us, WE the People, can enjoy our inalienable rights. Such rights as: Life, ‘Liberty’ and the right to, Pursue whatever makes us individually Happy, without burdening anyone else or depriving them of their same inalienable rights! But in practice, “liberalism” and “liberals” fail! It is like the true words of “liberalism” and “liberals” have been hijacked! The words have been re-defined and made into something in practice, something that they are, absolutely NOT!

The People of the United States have long been one of the most charitable people in the world! I believe current data would show that this is still true today. People do want to help others! Parents want to help their children and they want them to have more, be more and do more with their lives than what was available to them! On the surface, what’s wrong with any of this? Nothing, absolutely nothing! But we as a people have, a tendency to give out of our need. This can be argued as NOT being such a good thing. Consider instructions given to the passengers on a plane by the attendants. Do they not instruct, in case of an emergency, to first take care of yourself with say, the oxygen mask and then to help your children? Yes, of course, every airline tell us this! Common sense explains why. If we cannot breathe, we can’t really help our children can we? NO, we cannot! As to giving and receiving, isn’t it or wouldn’t it be better, if we all had more than we needed and that we give from our abundance and not out of our need? Sure, you know this is true. But still, many of us, maybe most of us are, often willing to give out of our need. And here is where the current words of “liberalism” and “liberal” break down and fail as, they are defined and practiced today. The key word is, “willing.”

forcing the breaking of the chains that bind…

forcing chains to be shattered just to make more…

 

 

Liberal3

…bind all to bondage

If you decide and are willing to give to someone or to something out of your need, it is your choice. You are “free” to do so. But “liberalism” and “liberals” remove this choice; this freedom of will. A certain percentage of the population decide, for the good of others, to take from them that have and give it to them that have not. In a court of law, this is a crime and it’s called stealing or theft. The fictional and romantic deeds of Robin Hood and his Merry Men/Maidens might sound good on paper, or view well at the movies, but they were still thieves, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. Now one could argue that the king stole all the money from the poor in the first place, but how does the same crime, justify the ends?  Oh sure, morally, to take back what belongs to you may be argued as NOT stealing or theft, but legally, and yes, we are still technically a republic and based on laws, it would be breaking the law. Stealing is, still stealing! Stealing is stealing and theft is theft!

Modern-day liberalism borders on “taxation without representation.” Sure, we supposedly or technically have representatives or representation in Congress, but who gets to decide who gets what, who gets taxed, how much you are taxed, where your money goes and who benefits from it? Certainly NOT the individual! But 435 representatives, 100 senators, 9 supreme court justices, 1 president and perhaps, a few thousand bureaucrats make most of the decisions, for over 300 million of the rest of us! Not only that, there is really NOT enough to go around, to meet every need. We know this is true because, we are in debt to the tune of trillions of dollars and we are borrowing money, not to pay off any of this debt, but mostly just to pay the interest, on servicing the debt. And speaking of debt, why do WE often hear about “raising the debt ceiling?” Would not a better and more accurate analogy be, digging a deeper hole?

Modern-day “liberals” and “liberalism” might have good intentions, but it removes from every individual, the “free” choice. It forces us to pay beyond our need, forces us deeper into debt, forces these debts upon our children, their children and on and on, way into the future. IT CANNOT BE SUSTAINED! If it cannot be sustained, there goes the future! If I am broke, you cannot get anymore from me and that’s just a fact. Forcing you to fill my lack will eventually make you go broke and that’s a fact. This is what is called, ‘redistribution of wealth.’ Nothing is ever made nor is wealth ever created, it’s just redistributed, somewhere else to someone else. Now why would any intelligent person (and most of our politicians are, if not intelligent, they are, highly educated) want to continue such an idiotic ideology and practice?

To begin, though this post may appear to be lengthy, it has taken me years to be able to understand my own personal feelings about this subject and to articulate it or put it into words. Perhaps for some, I am merely “preaching to the choir,” as it is already something you agree with? To others, no matter how logical it may be, if I try to convince you beyond your will, won’t you remain of the same opinion still? But to those that are open-minded, unsure or are, “on the fence,” perhaps it will be of some benefit to you? That is my intention!

But to understand why I am not a liberal, we need to understand what a liberal is. One would think that the dictionary would be the best place to define the word, but it’s not! According to dictionary.com, there are 13+ definitions. No help! So let’s look at the origin. Again, according to dictionary.com which gets its information from the following:

 

Collins English Dictionary – Complete & Unabridged 2012 Digital Edition
© William Collins Sons & Co. Ltd. 1979, 1986 © HarperCollins
Publishers 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012

We read—

 

“1325-75; Middle English < Latin līberālis of freedom, befitting the free, equivalent to līber free + -ālis -al1”

 

So, līberālis basically meant “free” + “all” or “free all.” This was what it meant to be liberal or to be a liberal. OK, now we are getting somewhere. Hmmm, is the word ‘Liberty’ a derivative? I wonder if there is an association with the word, “library?” In fact, just a small accent mark is all that separates the root words of say, ‘liberty’  [Latin – līber] and ‘Library’ [Latin – liber] which is a collection of books. ‘Liber (without the accent mark)  from Latin is, defined as —”of a tree, the inner, bark: Because dried bark was anciently used to write on, a book, work, treatise:

 

“In ancient Roman religion and mythology, Liber (“the free one”; Latin: Līber [ˈliː.bɛr]), also known as Liber Pater (“the free Father”) was a god of viticulture and wine, fertility and freedom. He was a patron deity of Rome‘s plebeians and was part of their Aventine Triad. His festival of Liberalia (March 17) became associated with free speech and the rights attached to coming of age. His cult and functions were increasingly associated with Romanised forms of the Greek Dionysus/Bacchus, whose mythology he came to share.”

Grimal, Pierre, The Dictionary of Classical Mythology, Wiley-Blackwell, 1996,

 

Liberal arts were taught and practiced in the ancient world. Perhaps at sometime, I will write a post about ‘Liberal Arts’ as it is, really, very interesting! The ancient Greeks and Romans likened these arts (7 total) as (knowledge/wisdom/understanding) being like, ‘ways’ of water, rivers flowing that would make one “free.” Now the 20th century only ended about 15 years ago. That’s not too long ago. For most of its 100 years, there were liberal colleges, liberal arts and a degree in liberal arts, used to mean something; it mattered; it was important. Liberal arts were to “broaden” the student’s understanding and make them able (“free”) to make a greater contribution to society as a whole and make them each, more successful, for themselves, their families, friends and again, society as a whole.

The Libertarian Party and I suppose to some degree or another, the Tea Party, has its roots in the Latin root word of līber, which means, “free.” On the surface, all this “free” stuff sounds great! Who wouldn’t want to be “free” or made “free” by knowledge, wisdom and understanding? No one right? Oh sure, everyone wants to be “free.” But the problem is, the word “liberal” does not mean what we think it means, as it is used today.

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Here is where we are so far:

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are Working on this Now!

Today: Returning to the Source – Constitutional or Manipulation?

Last time WE saw that through presidential proclamation, the country was under martial law and habeas corpus suspended. Therefore the Congress ceased to exist as a Constitutional Congress and became from that day forward (July 4th, 1861), an Executive Congress. The continuance to OUR present-day, of these Executive Congresses, as opposed to being Constitutional, will be examined in a future post. But for now, WE the People need to look at the actions of 1861. Were they Constitutional or a manipulation?

The Constitution

Article I

Section 1.

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

Section 4.

The Congress shall assemble at least once in every Year, and such Meeting shall be on the first Monday in December, unless they shall by Law appoint a different Day.

Section 5.

Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members, and a Majority of each shall constitute a Quorum to do Business; but a smaller Number may adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized to compel the Attendance of absent Members, in such Manner, and under such Penalties as each House may provide.

Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.

Each House shall keep a Journal of its Proceedings, and from time to time publish the same, excepting such Parts as may in their Judgment require Secrecy; and the Yeas and Nays of the Members of either House on any question shall, at the Desire of one fifth of those Present, be entered on the Journal.

Neither House, during the Session of Congress, shall, without the Consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, nor to any other Place than that in which the two Houses shall be sitting.

Section 8.

To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

To provide and maintain a Navy;

To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.

Section 10.

No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

Article II

Section 1.

The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.

Section 2.

The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States;

Section 3.

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses…

The Constitution parts WE have just read make it abundantly clear what powers were held by the Legislative & Executive Branches of Government.

The President could not declare war. He could not call forth the military. He could not suspend habeas corpus. He could not convene Congress unless “on extraordinary Occasions.” The words “on extraordinary Occasions,” are not defined in the Constitution.

So how could the President of the United States reconcile these discrepancies in his proclamation April 15, 1861, when he did call for the militia, summon Congress, and basically did declare war on the south (though it was never officially a war)?

The entire matter hinged upon secession of the states. The word “perpetuity” was used in this proclamation. In the Articles of Confederation (OUR first Constitution) it also included the words “and perpetual Union between the States…,” as its original title. The words were stricken in the Constitution and replaced with, “in order to form a more perfect Union (not a perfect or perpetual Union, but “a more perfect Union.” The question of secession was referred back to The Declaration of Independence:

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

“…as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do…”

Free and Independent States voluntarily united, to form the States United of America.

“If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union, or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left to combat it.”

Thomas Jefferson in his First Inaugural Address

15 years later after the New England Federalists attempted to secede, Jefferson said, “If any state in the Union will declare that it prefers separation … to a continuance in the union …. I have no hesitation in saying, ‘Let us separate.'”

James Madison, the father of the Constitution, cleared up what “the people” meant, saying the proposed Constitution would be subject to ratification by the people, “not as individuals composing one entire nation, but as composing the distinct and independent States to which they respectively belong.”

The states were sovereign; the federal government was a creation, an agent, a servant of the states.

Just about every major Northern newspaper editorialized in favor of the South’s right to secede.

New York Tribune (Feb. 5, 1860):

“If tyranny and despotism justified the Revolution of 1776, then we do not see why it would not justify the secession of Five Millions of Southrons from the Federal Union in 1861.”

Detroit Free Press (Feb. 19, 1861):

“An attempt to subjugate the seceded States, even if successful could produce nothing but evil — evil unmitigated in character and appalling in content.”

The New York Times (March 21, 1861):

“There is growing sentiment throughout the North in favor of letting the Gulf States go.”

President Lincoln did not see it this way. The actions he took indicate his thinking on the matter and the Constitution was used in effort to justify his actions. He believed the Union was perpetual and could not be dissolved unless all states or a majority decided to dissolve the union. Therefore, according to Lincoln, secession of the southern states was not secession, but a rebellion, insurrection, an illegal and unconstitutional act. In his proclamation he used the words, “combinations too powerful.” The newly seceded Southern states formed a “confederation.” The Constitution stated, “No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation.” But members of both houses had already declared their leaving as members publicly when they left their perspective house. The Senate had already withdrawn their names from the roll call and they were no longer considered members. They were never expelled! The seceding southern states had already ratified the decision to secede from the Union and then they formed a Confederation, alliance and treaty etc. with each other. This was known by the remaining members of Congress and the president BEFORE his proclamation was made. He did not respond to the questions from the Senate as to the numbers of troops and their intentions, growing in around Washington, D.C. They adjourned without a day to reconvene. Then Fort Sumter was attacked. Both the north and the south considered Fort Sumter, “their property.”

Previously in January of 1861, the south had repelled the northern attempt to re-supply the fort. Lincoln was informed that he had (2) options, either let it go or 20,000 troops in and around the fort would be required to secure it. There were most likely only 16,000 troops in the entire union army at that time.

Lincoln chose a third option. He sent word to state authorities that he would send food and provisions for the soldiers occupying the fort. Union ships were dispatched that secretly held armament and soldiers. The ships  anchored away from the fort. Small boats left for the island with food, provisions and in secret, ammunition and small arms. If these boats were unopposed by the south, this would have continued until ammunition was sufficient enough to protect the ships that would then offload their entire cargo of armament, ammunition and soldiers.

The benign measure of just providing food and provisions for the soldiers at the fort and presence of ships anchored in the harbor were not, and rightfully so, not trusted by the south. Both sides wanted the other side to fire first. Lincoln took a gamble and was willing to sacrifice men and the fort, if the south would fire first. The south did fire first.

Two days later, Lincoln under the “extraordinary Occasions” clause of the Constitution, issued an order to call forth the military and to re-convene Congress, essentially suspending Constitutional law and replacing it with Martial Law.

See Lincoln’s Proclamation:

The Day Congress Ceased

The proclamation was carefully worded to avoid appearance of impropriety and invoking portions of the Constitution for its purported justification.

Intense passions flared on both sides. Each action perceived suspiciously or interpreted rightly, influenced reaction by the other. Both sides viewed the escalation as preparation for war. Troops passing through Baltimore, Maryland in route to Washington for its defense, were perceived as threatening to the Peoples of Maryland. Another Executive order by Lincoln April 25, 1861 clearly showed that he understood that the following day, the Maryland legislature was to meet to consider the idea of seceding from the union. He ordered the military not to get involved to stop the meeting or to suspend habeas corpus which suggests that he believed that he had the power to suspend. Existence of troops around the area seemed indicative that this order was merely a veiled threat, if Maryland voted to secede from the union.

The following day, Maryland Legislature did meet. The issue of secession was left undecided and they adjourned with a specific date to re-convene. Before they were to meet again and did decided not to secede, union forces were in command to hold the state and habeas corpus suspended.

No matter how anyone chooses to look at who was right and who was wrong, what was justifiable or what was not; what the true intentions were, Lincoln’s proclamation on April 15, 1861, was an order which suspended the Constitutional authority of Congress and as Commander and Chief of the military, this was essentially, an order of martial law which placed both the Judiciary and the Legislative Branches under the control of the Executive Branch and ultimately with the president. The same order would allow the south to essentially surrender within 20 days. But the order to re-convene Congress, for July 4th, 1861, was almost 80 days later. Congress could have re-convened earlier to have considered such things as declaring war on the south, to call forth the military and allow the president to put down a rebellion. But they choose and did comply with this proclamation or order of the president and thereby relinquished Constitutional legislative power to the president. The Judiciary branch had no further choice in the matter.

Congressional journals show that to account for their actions, they would show solidarity with the president’s decisions. What remained since, from this day forward, was an Executive Congress which two years later would seize control of the sovereignty of the states, in the north and in the south from 1863 to this present-day. Good intentions or not, this presidential proclamation (order) of 1861 was not constitutional, it was manipulation at worst or an interpretation at least.

The history of Congress had been re-written!

Next Time: The Day the States United, Ceased to Exist

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! WE are in it, right now! The solution is on the way! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

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.

The Day Congress Ceased to Exist

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Here is where we are so far:

The List (simplified)

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” – WE are Working on this Now!

Today: The Day Congress Ceased to Exist!

Last time WE saw that the governors of the state in which WE the People reside are powerless within a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system, as pertaining to OUR Republic. This system was likened to The Matrix. Just like in the movies, in order to operate inside the matrix, WE have to contend by the rules of The Matrix. WE saw that OUR Republic has not changed, OUR sovereign states have not changed and WE the People have not lost our rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!” The idea was presented that if WE the People have UN-empowered our governors through this system, WE can also empower them through this corrupt system.

I have written over and over again throughout this blog that the solution is simple, not easy, but simple. It may take some time, but not a lifetime and it requires OUR individual and collective participation. So if it is so simple and I know what it is, why don’t I just spill it? The reason is two-fold.

First of all, WE are not used to simple. How could WE believe something if it is so simple that even a child could understand it? By the way, isn’t this the purpose of education, to teach so that all can understand and therefore are enabled to take some kind of action? But WE live in a complex and complicated world. Even OUR own government seems to have problems in reading and understanding the bills that if they were to become laws, WE the People would supposedly be subjected to them? It’s all legalese or legal speak? Who thinks reads and writes like this? Hmmm, lawyers, politicians, bankers and corporations?

Secondly, who has a vested interest in WE the People not knowing about history being rewritten, about this corrupt system or that WE are living in an artificial country? There are two groups: those that work within this corrupt system and those that depend upon crumbs from the system, just to exist.

Even if you are a good apple and get tossed into this corrupt system, you are going to rot! So where did this rotten system begin? It had started the day the Declaration of Independence was signed in the thoughts of some, but in practice, it took form in 1861.

Government 101

There are three branches of government within our republic right? This was and remains a stroke of genius by our founders! The three branches push each other and this WE call OUR checks and balances. Only one branch is empowered to make laws and propose amendments to OUR Constitution. The only exception to this is the delegates of a Constitutional Convention. See:

Convening a Constitutional Convention

The Judiciary Branch was and is empowered to make sure these laws and amendments did not contradict OUR Constitution and to enforce the laws.

The Executive Branch was and is empowered to execute these laws, not make law through proclamations and executive orders, circumvent the Legislative Branch, or go around the Judiciary Branch. So there is and have been a lot of pushing and shoving and effort involved among all branches in trying to dominate the others. But Congress is supposed to be in empowered to make laws and amend OUR Constitution, period!

This has been brought up in this blog before that ever since 1861 Congress has ceased to exist, constitutionally. So what are the facts to this wild sounding claim?

____________________________________________________________

EXECUTIVE ORDER CONGRESS

ADJOURNMENT SINE DIE

(Adjournment without a day to reconvene)

37th U.S. Congress, March 28, 1861

MR. POWELL, from the committee appointed to wait on the President of the United States and notify him that unless he has some further communications to make, the Senate is ready to adjourn, reported that the committee had waited on the President, and been informed by him that he had no further communication to make to the Senate.

MR. FOSTER. I move to take up the resolution which I submitted a short time ago for an adjournment, without delay, at fifteen minutes before four o’clock.

MR. HALE. I move that the Senate do now adjourn sine die.

The motion was agreed to; and the Senate adjourned sine die.

____________________________________________________________

Question, why did they adjourn without a day? If you research the journals of the Congress for this time period, you will discover that both houses had already witnessed the departure of many of their members from the southern states that had seceded. Those representatives and senators had already announced their intentions. The Senate had already agreed to remove them as members of the Senate and their names from the roll call. Both houses already knew that they would be functioning with fewer members and any quorum (simple majority) would be smaller. Both houses were already aware of the unsuccessful attempt by the union forces to secure Fort Sumter in January of this same year. But the Senate had been waiting for the president to respond to their request for information as to the unusual amount of union military forces and their intent, within and outside of Washington, D.C. Since the president did not respond while they were in session, they adjourned without a day set, to either re-convene or to convene as set by the Constitution. But they could have re-convened at anytime if they so chose to!

What happened next? The Battle of Fort Sumter lasted from April 12–13, 1861. Both the north and the south had hoped the other side would fire first, giving them greater force to justify their actions and rally public support. The south fired first and recaptured Fort Sumter. Two days later, President Lincoln issued the following proclamation.

____________________________________________________________

Proclamation Calling Militia and Convening Congress

April 15, 1861

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

A PROCLAMATION.

[call it a proclamation, an executive order, or a declaration of war if you like]

Whereas the laws of the United States have been for some time past, and now are opposed, and the execution thereof obstructed, in the States of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas, by combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings, or by the powers vested in the Marshals by law,

Now therefore, I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, in virtue of the power in me vested by the Constitution, and the laws, have thought fit to call forth, and hereby do call forth, the militia of the several States of the Union, to the aggregate number of seventy-five thousand, in order to suppress said combinations, and to cause the laws to be duly executed. The details, for this object, will be immediately communicated to the State authorities through the War Department. [Martial Law]

I appeal to all loyal citizens to favor, facilitate and aid this effort to maintain the honor, the integrity, and the existence of our National Union, and the perpetuity of popular government; and to redress wrongs already long enough endured.

I deem it proper to say that the first service assigned to the forces hereby called forth will probably be to re-possess the forts, places, and property which have been seized from the Union; and in every event, the utmost care will be observed, consistently with the objects aforesaid, to avoid any devastation, any destruction of, or interference with, property, or any disturbance of peaceful citizens in any part of the country.

And I hereby command the persons composing the combinations aforesaid to disperse, and retire peaceably to their respective abodes within twenty days from this date.

Deeming that the present condition of public affairs presents an extraordinary occasion, I do hereby, in virtue of the power in me vested by the Constitution, convene both Houses of Congress. Senators and Representatives are therefore summoned to assemble at their respective chambers, at 12 o’clock, noon, on Thursday, the fourth day of July, next, then and there to consider and determine, such measures, as, in their wisdom, the public safety, and interest may seem to demand.

In Witness Whereof I have hereunto set my hand, and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the city of Washington this fifteenth day of April in the year of our Lord One thousand, Eight hundred and Sixtyone, and of the Independence the United States the Eightyfifth.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN

By the President:

WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.

____________________________________________________

Question, if this was an “extraordinary occasion,” why did the president wait until July 4th to have both houses seated and why the date of July 4th? If this was such an “extraordinary occasion” why did congress not itself, call itself back to Washington? But how was this proclamation by the president responded to by Congress?

____________________________________________________________

THIRTY-SEVENTH CONGRESS.

FIRST SESSION

IN SENATE

THURSDAY, July 4, 1861

As the President of the united States deemed that the Condition of the public affairs presented an extraordinary occasion which required the assembling of Congress at an earlier day than that fixed by the Constitution, by virtue of the power vested in him, he, by his proclamation dated April 15, 1861, summoned both Houses of Congress to meet in their respective Chambers on the 4th day of July, 1861, instant.

____________________________________________________________

They convened as commanded by the president on the day and time as demanded. From this day forward, there has never been a Constitutional Congress seated in Washington, D.C.! Anyone, anywhere and at anytime, if it can be shown by date, time and record that this has ever changed, I will change this. But until if and when this has been proven, Congress remains an Executive Congress and not a Constitutional Congress.

Surely Congress looked real from that point and thereafter. The previous proclamations and orders seem to be using the Constitution as justification. All appeared to be “extraordinary Occasions” as written in the Constitution, but are not defined in the Constitution. But this was the beginning of the make-believe U.S.A.

What does this all have to do with the governors of OUR states? From this day forward, all our elected or appointed national representatives and senators have been seated into illegitimate Congresses. They are not bound to serve their prospective states. They only appear that they are. They are seated in an Executive Congress as if the country were still under Marital Law. Martial Law was imposed by President Lincoln and it was lifted at the conclusion of the conflict among the states and completed in the state of Missouri by the military, some time after the assassination of President Lincoln. But in 1863, this same executive congress and Lincoln would pass laws and propose amendments to the Constitution which were and are UN-constitutional. These laws and the Conscription Act of 1863 in particular, has never been rescinded, canceled or overturned. These laws would affect every state in 1863 and all states thereafter. As the states were re-written, so were the powers of the governors. In 1871, the Executive Congress Incorporation of Washington, D.C. made it the legal fiction seat of Corporate U.S.A. and its subsidiaries or sub-corporations (the legal fiction states) under its jurisdiction.

By the ratification of the 14th amendment to the Constitution by the fake states, WE the people became subject to the jurisdiction of the fake United States.

I am neither a lawyer nor a legal scholar, but like you, I CAN READ! WE can read history and WE can read history that has been re-written too! To beat the corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system, WE have to play by the rules of the system.

Our goal is to legally seat the governors of OUR individual and sovereign states, which would as a result, legally seat our representatives and senators into a Constitutional Congress, which would legally seat both the Executive and Judiciary Branches of government into OUR Republic.

To accomplish this, WE the People must understand the difference between what is Constitutional and manipulation (legal fiction and re-written history).

In the fictional movie series ‘The Matrix,’ WE are introduced to the character of Neo, Thomas Anderson, one of billions of humans neurally connected to the Matrix, unaware that the world he lives in is a virtual reality. In his legitimate activities, he is a quiet programmer for a “respectable software company,” but he is also a computer hacker who penetrates computer systems. During his time as a hacker, Anderson has learned about something known only as “the Matrix”. It is described by the character Morpheus, as a vague notion that Neo has felt his whole life that “there is something wrong with the world” In order to defeat this system, he must return to the source. In the end, the solution and victory is found in choice – freedom of will – liberty, not a concept, but a reality and an unalienable right. This is what WE the People must do. WE must return to the source and by OUR choice – freedom of will – liberty, WE the People must contend by the rules of the system, tear it down and rip it out! Do WE the People so will?

Next Time: Returning to the Source – Constitutional or Manipulation?

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! WE are in it, right now! The solution is on the way! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

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.

Empowering Restoration

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work. So far:

The List (simplified)

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

2.   The 9/12 Project?

3.   ‘The Commerce Clause?’

4.   Convening a Constitutional Congress?

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

6.   Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People in future elections?

7.   Remain divided and work for self, other causes, parties and candidates.

8.   Establish a new service to restore OUR rights to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”WE are Working on this Now!

Please note: “Right” in the singular is the same as “rights” is the plural. It is like saying “fruit of the vine” or as a clump  of grapes . We don’t generally say fruits of the vine. “Right” in the singular includes all “Rights” in the plural. Each 1 of WE in the singular includes WE in the plural!

Today: Empowering the Restoration of Our Republic to secure OUR rights to: “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!”

Last time WE saw that the governors of the state in which WE the People reside, are the most powerless people in OUR country. WE the people voted for them or helped to elect them by not voting or canceling out OUR votes in voting for someone else. Why would WE the People intentionally elect someone that is powerless? WE didn’t, at least not on purpose!

But WE elected them to a term of service to serve, under a corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system that is about as close to being a republic as pigs are to being able to fly, on their own as with wings!

Are you growing weary of seeing all the red and blue, bold and italicized WE’s & OUR’s etc., used throughout this blog and those associated with it? It is by design to emphasize them and to reiterate them over and over again.

Now let me ask each 1 of you, WE the People, two very important questions.

Has OUR Republic changed; disappeared or is it still here?

Is OUR government still OF the People, BY the people and FOR the people?

The answer to both questions is the same! WE are and WE remain the People of the Republic, OF the People, BY the people and FOR the people!

Well that sounds all pie-in-the-sky, but WE live in the real world Dahni, this is not how things are. Wake up Dahni, get a life!

Things have changed you say? Politicians don’t listen; don’t care and we have slim to no chance of this changing much you think? It’s just the way it is, huh? Oh really?

I was asleep like many still are. I did live inside ‘The Matrix.’ I was down the rabbit hole. I was living in a fantasy world, BECAUSE history was not changed, it was rewritten! And like you, what I learned, I learned in school.

Well what did a famous writer; satirist and humorist have to say about that?

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”

– Mark Twain

Many times in order to learn, WE must first UN-learn. WE must set aside what WE think WE know in order to know, not just intellectually, but practically and by experience. Until then, OUR founding documents (the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution) are just words, old words on old paper, kept in a museum-like archive. Until then, these words mean nothing to US, in OUR day by day living.

But when WE get it, WE get it! When WE do, this is what WE will see with eyes clear and wide open.

“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.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

Excerpts from the Declaration of Independence

Which of these words WE just read and specifically those in bold and italicized have changed since they were written in 1776? NONE of them have changed! Not a single word has been changed or altered!

It is only a corrupt, corruptible and corrupting system that has endeavored to re-write history.

Here is a snapshot from 1776. There were 13 original colonies right? Those 13 sent representatives to serve the will of the people right? Since The Declaration of Independence was unanimously declared, by all the signers who represented the People, it has been argued ever since that all were in it together, so all would be necessary to end the union. This was seen in the official title of the Articles of Confederation in 1781 (our first constitution) – The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.

The words “Perpetual Union are not contained in Our Constitution. Why, because it contradicts the original intention of The Declaration of Independence. Simply put, did all the signers of this document sign at the same time? No, they signed in order, one after another. Did the thirteen original colonies all come together at the same time? No they came in order, one after another. Did the 13 original states all come into the union at the same time? No they did not, but in order, one after another.

Were those original 13 states, United States or were they States United? They were all, each and every one a sovereign, independent and individual state that united voluntarily by choice, for the protection and shared resources of all, BY the People OF the People and For the People. What has since changed? Nothing, zip, notta’, not a single thing has changed! Oh, but WE had to give up some of our sovereignty, for the benefits of being a state in the Union, right? WRONG, WE just think WE are citizens of OUR state and of the United States. WE are not! WE are citizens of the states wherein WE currently reside.

OK, to shorten this, here is what I am saying. If the governors of our states are the most powerless people in the country, so to, can they become the most powerful people. How? By the same people that placed these governors into their offices, which is, WE the People!

If history has been re-written to say that WE the People are under the jurisdiction of the Federal Government or the United States, Inc., then by the same rules, WE the People can seat our governors in the independent, individual and sovereign states united.

From the movie trilogy ‘The Matrix,’ you have to operate inside the matrix, according to the rules of the matrix. This is what I am proposing WE do. Restoring OUR Republic begins by US, WE the People restoring the sovereignty of OUR individual states. This does not require a new party, a court challenge or any such thing long in process or something so complicated. It already exists! It is not the fake states within the fake United States, but the real deal. So how do WE do this?

If under this corrupt, corrupting and corruptible system and through OUR participation (voting, signing etc.) in the political process, OUR governors are the most powerless people in the country, so far as OUR republic is concerned, through the exact selfsame process, WE the People can empower them!

Remember The Matrix,  which is a system. In order to beat the system, WE must contend by the rules. WE must know what the rules are. The system set the rules. WE need to know when this was done.

Next Time: The Day Congress Ceased to Exist

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! WE are in it, right now! The solution is on the way! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

Let the Restoration Begin

February 8, 2010

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Last time I asked for your help (the 8 Re’s from the last post). The title of the list “Redux” and every item on the list used the same two letters, ‘R’ & ‘e’ or ‘Re’. Restoration uses the same first two letters, also. ‘Re’ is an important prefix and quite simply means to repeat, do something over or do something again. Like the word – ‘rejoice,’ for example. In order to rejoice, WE first needed to have joy. The point here is that these things are available and we just want to re-do or re-peat these over and over. WE want to re-store.

Today: Let the Restoration Begin!

WE the People must know and understand what a restoration is and what WE are restoring. This is not a construction, a de-struction or a re-construction. It is not building, a re-building or a re-modeling . It is a re-storing or a restoration of the original. It is something WE already had and WE already have!

In previous posts in this blog, I have taken great lengths to try and uncover, what has been hidden from most of US for well over 100 years (specifically since 1861). The words ‘Legal Fiction,’ were introduced. WE have looked at various metaphors and ideas to try and fix an image in our minds, as to what legal fiction is. Concepts from the series of movies known as ‘The Matrix’ were used as was the ‘rabbit hole,’ in the fantasy world of ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ Plainly and legally, legal fiction is as follows.

Legal Fiction

In the common law tradition, legal fictions are suppositions of fact taken to be true by the courts of law, but which are not necessarily true. They typically are used to evade archaic rules of procedure or to extend the jurisdiction of the courts in ways that were considered useful, but not strictly authorized by the old rule.

Legal fictions were used by courts prior to the existence of handling offences. In a situation where A sells stolen property to B, B can then be accused of handling stolen property. Legal fiction has been used to declare that: as A did not have the power to sell the property to B, B was considered to have also stolen the property, and was therefore guilty of theft.

The term “legal fiction” is not usually used in a pejorative way in spite of the negative connotation of the phrase, and has been characterized as scaffolding around a building under construction.

Note: Research the history of ‘Legal fiction’ and Law dictionaries, specifically ‘Black’s Law dictionary. It may be of interest to you to discover the specific year (edition) when this term was first used.

What does ‘Legal Fiction’ have to do with restoration? What the following image endeavors to illustrate is that legal fiction is not real. It is a fake or a façade. It does not exist. It is fantasy. Take a look at the image below.

The image is a model of OUR U.S. Capitol. For OUR purposes here, this represents OUR Republic; OUR Constitution; OUR government; OUR rule of Law.

With the lighting, the image and black background, it is accepted as being at night. Night represents secrecy or the cover of darkness.

If you look closely, scaffolding can be seen in the picture. It is hard to tell exactly where the scaffolding is. Is it in front of, in the center (sandwiched between two buildings) or behind the building? But once WE see it, WE know it is there. Remember, scaffolding is used as an analogy for a building under construction. So what it appears to be that what WE are looking at, is OUR republic, under construction. This can be understood as amendments to our Constitution; other purported laws of the land and states or as, a work in progress.

What WE think and believe is OUR Republic, is actually a façade. It is like a whole town built for a western movie set. From the front it looks real, but it actually has no sides, innards or back.

Look closely. Can you see a faint image of the capitol’s rotunda just behind and to the left of the one lit and in the foreground? What WE are actually looking at is a building which appears to be an exact replica of the one in front. Darkness and the scaffolding make this difficult to see, but this is what is there. And what is this dark, unseen and almost unknown building? It is our Republic! It is not a replica! The replica is the one in front; the one that looks all pretty and lit up. It’s the one WE think and believe is OUR republic. It is not an exact replica! It is a fake and it has been altered!

The scaffolding (legal fiction), was used to construct this façade or fake government. The real capitol is behind the fake one.

Look at the center of the lit capitol rotunda in the foreground. Can you make out the colors of blue and gold and the form of a chair? It is a throne and representative of a monarchy, or a dictatorship. Call this usurpation, treason or tyranny.

This is not to blame a person, persons or party. It is not another conspiracy theory. Whether by original intent, present knowledge with intent, or ignorance, these are the facts. This is a system, a corrupt, corruptiing and corruptible system THAT MUST BE TORN DOWN AND TORN OUT!

This system, this scaffolding, this legal fiction, this United States, Inc., this façade, has been under construction for well over 100 years!

This system has systematically tried to rewrite history, OUR Constitution and OUR unalienable rights that among these are, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

This system has tried to replace the United States FOR America with the United States OF America. This system has tried to replace OUR Republic (rule by law) with a democracy (rule by majority). This system has tried to replace OUR unalienable (rights which cannot be surrendered or taken) with inalienable rights (freedoms – privileges which can be surrendered and taken). This system has tried to take the sovereignty of the several states and replace them with districts under the jurisdiction of the District of Columbia, Inc. This system has tried to replace OUR citizenship in the state where WE reside and replace it with Citizenship of (under the jurisdiction of) the United States (the District of Columbia, Inc.). This system has tried to take OUR Liberties (unalienable rights) and replace them with freedoms (inalienable rights (privileges).

This system has tried to bind US under legal contract in replacing bearer bonds, legal tender – money backed by gold or silver as instruments for services rendered, acquisitions acquired and for payments of all debts public and private, with Federal Reserve Notes. This system has tried to bind us under contract in our acceptance of this counterfeit money and illegal bearer bonds. But no contract is valid unless all parties knowingly agree to the terms and have all signed the contract. No representative may sign on behalf of any other. No power of attorney is valid unless for the cause of a non-adult prohibited from entering into any such binding agreement or it has been proven that physical or mental incapacitation, can show cause that the party is unable to sign the contract for herself or himself.

This system has tried to systematically tear down the government OF the People, By the People and FOR the People and replace it with a master relationship (even if benevolent), for whom we serve as its servants; its slaves for our very existence.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is OUR Republic that WE the People are to restore. Nothing has changed! OUR Republic has not changed! OUR sovereignty has not changed nor has the sovereignty of the several states. OUR Liberty has not and cannot be forfeited, surrendered or taken from US! Our Constitution has not changed!

WE the People are living inside and outside of a lie, a façade, and a fake legal fiction fantasy called, the United States, Inc.; seated in the District of Columbia, Inc!

WE the people must tear down the scaffolding and this legal fiction façade and rip it out to reveal and to restore, OUR Republic which still stands!

WE the People know now, what has to be restored (OUR Republic). Now WE the People need to know, HOW to restore it!

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and the participation of each 1 of WE the people. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

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.

I am Asking for Your Help

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work in order to find what will work.

Today: I am asking for Your Help!

Heretofore in this blog, my several blogs and web sites, I have not and do not ask anyone for anything with the exception of asking for comments and for You to do something for yourself. I have not charged you or anyone to read this post, any post from any blog or for the content on any of the web sites I am associated with. But in one sense, you pay something when you give of your time to view the content that I have provided. Today, I am asking you for more!

Oh my, it looks like a To-Do-Today list. Well, yes it is. As everything begins with the letters r’ and e’ or Re’, perhaps the list will be easier to recall, especially so if the items from the list of 8 are less than 8 in what you choose to act upon.

The List Defined

The list begins with the word Redux.

Redux [ri-duhks]  – (adjective) brought back; resurgent:

Origin: 1650–60;  Latin : returning (as from war or exile), noun. deriv. (with passive. sense) of redūcere to bring back;

Random House Dictionary, © Random House, Inc. 2010.

So this list is to bring back. It is a resurgence, a coming out of exile, like coming out of the Matrix (see the movies with this name); like emerging from the Rabbit Hole (see Alice in Wonderland). With eyes opened, WE the People are vehemently infuriated and WE are not going to take it anymore! Redux also, carries the meaning of a restoration. When WE cook WE understand the word, reduce. Remove the water and what is left is the original, not watered down. This is what I mean here in this post and this blog by the word, RESTORATION.

1.  Read – It is my intention that you read this post and every post in this blog and all those associated with this blog, WORD FOR WORD! An informed public is OUR greatest tool for restoring WE the People. Information is not only for information, but it can be for transformation too!

2.  Research – Check out my facts, history, grammar, spelling, style and the way in which I have written them. This is first of all for YOU! Don’t just take my word for what I have written. Am I right? Challenge me! Tell me where I am wrong or where improvements could be made. This of course leads to the next item on the list. If I am really 1 of WE, WE are all in this together. It is important to be right and to communicate to the end that all can understand, so that WE can take action.

3.  Respond – Make a comment or comments below or send me an email to: dahni1@gmail.com. My icon picture is really me. I am not transparent or invisible. I can be found. Refresh me with your encouragement, your kindness and if anything I have written or write makes any positive difference to you. Rebuke me with the facts and your suggestions as to how I may change or improve. This is not a me-thing, but a WE -thing that I, 1 of WE am endeavoring to do for US, WE the People!

4.  Repeat – If you like or appreciate, agree with or believe in what I am trying to do –  copy, cut and paste; right-click with your mouse; drag and drop, and download and upload these posts (or what is appropriate to you) to your friends, families, associates and anyone by email, on a web site, by phone, by online social network, print media, carrier pigeons, smoke signal, Morse code, Braille, tap-taps or to those on the other end of the string, connecting your network of tin cans.  🙂

I just ask that you give credit where it is due and to include this blog address:

https://theamericaneagleservice.wordpress.com/

5.  Reciprocate – If you like something I have done, if you believe in what I am trying to do or if anything I have done or that I am doing means anything to you, buy something. I am not wealthy or a person of means. I am not running for any political office. I am not trying to set up a tax-deductible, not for profit political organization or another political party. I am not part of a non-profit organization. I am just like you, I have expenses just like you, bills, a mortgage and yes even debts. But this is who I am. This is what I do. I am an artist, composer, a poet and a writer. Sure, I would probably have been better off if I had not gotten into the arts at all (starving artist syndrome thing) or at least just devoted my efforts to one of these instead of the many things I do. But these are all like breathing to me! I am asking you to buy or purchase something I have done or have made. Check out:

https://americaneaglestore.wordpress.com/

www.dahni.com

www.i-imagine.biz.

These are the principle locations for what I have to offer for purchase. If you cannot find something you like, ask and I will make something special for you. Buy a post or an article I have written. Send whatever you think appropriate. Send a check. Your check is the receipt or I’ll send you a receipt. Put on the memo: For Literary Services Rendered or For Educational Purposes. Any good accountant or CPA would know how to write this off your taxes, especially if you have a home based business, which I believe everyone should have! Are you or do you know an agent, publicist, producer, editor, advertiser, marketer, business person, lawyer, an investor or someone involved in the arts in any way? Can you; would you help me? I have poetry, music, art, scripts and the list is nearly endless of work completed or in process. Any help just keeps me going. I am not looking to become wealthy at the expense of WE the People. I just want to make a living among US, doing what I love to do. Please make Checks Payable to:

I-Magine
27 West. Blvd. Parkway
Rochester, NY 14612

You can write me, Dahni, at the same address.

6.  Restore –  I am asking you for help in restoring our republic. This restoration has two parts:

a. it includes 1-6 above

c. Participate in the actual restorative process – COMING SOON

7.  Rejoice – Rejoice living with OUR unalienable rights that among theses are, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!”

8.  Resist – Resist any attempt, from anyone or from any source foreign or domestic to usurp, control, disband or overthrow by any means, the government OF the People, By the People and FOR the People, EVER AGAIN!! With eyes wide open, let US walk among each other with Liberty and justice for all!

Next Time:  Let The Restoration Begin!

Me, Those & Them

HOW can WE the People regain control of OUR right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? WE have delved into what won’t work, in order to find what will work.

So far:

The List (simplified)

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

2.   The 9/12 Project?

3.   ‘The Commerce Clause?’

4.   Convening a Constitutional Congress?

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

6.   Hope that the other party will get its act together and produce the necessary changes for WE the People in future elections?

Today: Why remaining divided and working for self, other causes, parties and candidates, will not work!

Last time WE saw that just hoping the other party will get its act together and produce the changes that WE the People want and need, will not work! The problem does not lie at the feet of any one person, persons or party. It’s the SYSTEM that is corrupt, corrupting and corruptible that WE the People must end, before it is become the end of US!

What are OUR options or alternatives then?

If you can’t change city hall, then you might as well do your own thing? Just take care of you and yours? Here is the problem with that argument.

Most of US do not live in a cave, on some deserted island, on a mountain top far from people, some remote corner of the desert or in an overseas shipping crate along some abandoned shoreline. While it may seem like these might be good choices and to just take care of you and yours, most of WE the People, just happen to live among the rest of US! In so living among US, each 1 of WE the People, effect and affect all of US! If each 1 of WE the People withdraw from US, WE are not WE, we are the wee little and separate ones – DIVIDED!

OK, forget that, let’s all individually choose and work for some other cause or organization? WE know that most organizations are usually not for profit, non-profits or just non-profs. Sure, WE can get a tax deduction and they don’t have to pay taxes like the rest of US, but they still have expenses like salaries. Many of these organizations make a lot of money and many people want to start one, because of this fact. Many new ones form almost every day. WE also know that OUR dollars don’t always go towards the purpose or the cause for which we take part in the first place. But join WE do, these other causes in record numbers. Sometimes WE join with our money, but usually at least with some amount of our time.

But gosh, there are so many causes and organizations (many good ones too), how do you choose? It’s like what you could refer to as the I-Generation – iPod, iPad, iThis, iThat or just ‘Me-Myself-and-I. It’s like cable TV with a billion channels. Just who has the time or interest in watching all of them? But there is a channel for almost anyone; offering almost anything.  How about social networks online? Whew, seems like a new one of those pops up every day too. In the end, WE are still very much divided!

OK, then let’s go find and flush out some reluctant candidate, a George Washington type or someone that has the ability, confidence, skills, talent, honesty and the guts to tell it like it is; is financially sound (needs no money), but has no interest in politics whatsoever. WE could all get behind such a leader, but if they will not serve, WE are still where WE were! Although a leader, has and can make a difference, leaders can only lead, If there are followers willing, able and united in following them. But my candidate might not be your candidate and your candidate might not be mine. So WE are still divided!

Alright then, let’s just chuck this whole two party thing and start over? In our country for quite some time, WE have come to believe that two parties give US a choice. Is that right? Only recently, has it begun to be understood that neither the Democrat Party nor the Republican Party can win any election, without the Independent vote! This power base is not the Independent Party or some other independent party, just independent voters. Since neither of the two major parties can win without the independent vote, why not just put our power and resources behind the independents? Why, because, independents do not have sufficient numbers, to win any election, by themselves either. This is just one reason why a third party is likely to fail.

Since a ‘third party’ was brought up, let’s look at this idea a little while. The concept is certainly not new. There are tons of other parties in existence or are being formed almost every day. In our recent political history, many have seen the impact of a third party.

“On February 20, 1992, Ross Perot appeared on CNN’s ‘Larry King Live’ and announced his intention to run as an independent if his supporters could get his name on the ballot in all 50 states. In the 1992 election, he received 18.9% of the popular vote – approximately 19,741,065 votes (but no Electoral College votes), making him the most successful third-party presidential candidate in terms of the popular vote since Theodore Roosevelt in the 1912 election.”

Source:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ross_Perot

Since 1992, no other independent candidate or party has even come close to these results! But almost 19% or over19 million votes is nothing to sneeze at.

Many people believe that all a third party or other independent parties do is, spilt the vote and take from either of the other two major parties. If I don’t like #1 or #2 and choose instead, #3, my vote may end up helping either #1 or #2 get elected, depending on the results of all votes cast. That would certainly not be my intention! I might as well not vote at all? This is exactly what a lot of US think, feel and end up doing, just staying home.

Please do not misunderstand. I am all for alternatives in OUR political process. I am in favor of anyone starting another party. It is OUR right to choose! WE should vote OUR conscience and should not stay at home! WE should exercise our rights and it is OUR responsibility to vote, even if WE knew, while pulling the curtain inside the voting booth that OUR candidate, candidates, and party would probably loose! If you were dying of thirst and probably wouldn’t and couldn’t get to water, would you lay there and die or would you try anyway?

Do I think or believe a third party or other parties could succeed? Absolutely, but lot of people would have to leave one or both of the other two major political parties and join together, in order for that to happen. Do you see that happening in our lifetimes? I do not. But even if it did, would WE the People be united? Would WE the People unanimously all vote the same way? That is highly doubtful and if not impossible, it would be most improbable. So, in attempting this, WE remain divided.

WE live in a country where the government portrays itself as a democracy (rule by the majority), but OURS is not a democracy, it is a REPUBLIC! Until WE see this, understand it and fight for it, WE remain divided.

If each one of US make up WE the people (and WE do), and working for self, other causes, other candidates, and other parties divide US (and they do), what can each 1 of WE the People; what can WE the People do? What can unite US? How can WE the People, restore our rights to, “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit Happiness?”

Remaining divided and working for self, other causes, parties and candidates will not work! The problem and the answer to this is the same.  It’s the system that WE the People, must eliminate and WE must begin YESTERDAY, to tear it down and rip it out! What then would remain? WE would begin again at where WE started, under a constitution, a republic Of the People, By the People and For the People, of the United States of America! It’s still here! It’s only hidden underneath the scaffolding called legal fiction or the United States, Inc.

I have promised and will keep my promise. I promise you that what WE can do about all of this and HOW to do it is coming! WE are just two days or two posts away in this blog, from the solution! It is really quite simple. It will not take forever or even a lifetime. It will only take a small amount of time and your direct participation. It may be difficult, but WE can do it IF, WE the People so will to do it. Do WE so will?

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.
