What Is The Federal Government Up To Lately?

Without liberty, law loses its nature and its name, and becomes oppression. Without law, liberty also loses its nature and its name, and becomes licentiousness. --James Wilson, Of the Study of the Law in the United States, 1790

Without liberty, law loses its nature and its name, and becomes oppression. Without law, liberty also loses its nature and its name, and becomes licentiousness. --James Wilson, Of the Study of the Law in the United States, 1790

“Where there is no law, there is no liberty; and nothing deserves the name of law but that which is certain and universal in its operation upon all the members of the community.” Benjamin Rush, letter to David Ramsay, circa April 1788

Licentiousness

With the federal government actively ignoring certain laws and enforcing others to extremes, what is going on?  When did the federal government become the masters of We the People instead of our servant?  Certainly the Constitution sets many limits on the federal government which are being ignored and while congress and the presidents have continually been trying to erode those things which have made this country great.  Add to that the fact that our national guard, those defenders of each State and set up for the defense of American Citizens are being turned into something else entirely and something for which I hold great fear instead of respect.  As an example, check out their website:

Why does it seem that the federal government is afraid of us?  Are we not all of the same country?  Does that mean that they are doing things which they should NOT be doing and so are forced to defend themselves against us???  Now, I really tried to cut something out of the above, but it seemed so important for people to see it all, read it all, and know exactly what is being sworn to.  So then I decided that I’d look up these oaths and see what they said because frankly, the above scares me. Here is what I found:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that …”

Defending the Constitution

Our Common Bond
WELCOME TO THE ARMY TEAM! A TEAM MADE SPECIAL BY THE OATH YOU AND OTHERS TAKE TO SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. THOSE WHO TOOK THE OATH AND SERVED BEFORE YOU CONSISTENTLY DEMONSTRATED THE ARMY’S LEADERSHIP VALUES OF LOYALTY, DUTY, RESPECT, SELFLESS-SERVICE, HONOR, INTEGRITY, AND PERSONAL COURAGE. THIS PAMPHLET DESCRIBES THE LINK BETWEEN YOUR OATH AND THOSE VALUES AND VIVIDLY ILLUSTRATES THE CHALLENGE YOU ACCEPT WHEN YOU PLEDGE TO SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES.

Is that why DHS has labeled veterans as right wing extremists? Is this how DHS supports our troops? Does any of this make sense when viewed in terms of how grateful our government should be to those who have laid down their lives or fought for this country or other countries? I seriously question this.


OATH OF OFFICE

(OFFICERS)

“I HAVING BEEN APPOINTED AN OFFICER IN THE ARMY OF THE UNITED STATES, AS INDICATED IN THE ABOVE 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; 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 UPON WHICH I AM ABOUT TO ENTER. SO HELP ME GOD”


OATH OF OFFICE

(ARMY CIVILIANS)

“I 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; 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 UPON WHICH I AM ABOUT TO ENTER. SO HELP ME GOD”


OATH OF ENLISTMENT

“I 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”


OATH OF NATIONAL GUARD

“I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR (OR AFFIRM) THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AND OF MY STATE AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC; THAT I WILL BEAR TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THEM; AND THAT I WILL OBEY THE ORDERS OF THE OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE GOVERNOR OF MY STATE AND THE ORDERS OF THE OFFICERS APPOINTED OVER ME, ACCORDING TO LAW AND REGULATIONS. SO HELP ME GOD.”

When taking the oath, you accept the same demands now that American soldiers and Army civilians have Embodied since the Revolutionary War. The oath deals with values and ethics. The acceptance of and adherence to the leadership values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage will lead to successful and rewarding careers like those of the citizen soldiers who served in the early years.

These attributes are collectively referred to as the Army ethic. By instilling these values within each soldier and Army civilian, we can strengthen the professional Army ethic. Supervisors and employees should take advantage of key events in an employee’s career such as a promotion or leader development course graduations to reaffirm the oath and our commitment to the Constitution as Army civilians.

While the Oaths are all about upholding the Constitution, they also specify some others like the acting POTUS, Governor of the State the national guard is stationed in, and so forth. So what happens when the National Guard receive an order to arrest the very people that they are there to protect and defend by a corrupt and tyrannical government such as the federal government is becoming? What happens when they are told to arrest American Citizens standing up for their Creator given rights or Constitutional privileges? Each National Guard member will have to answer that for themselves, but I would hope that they would think long and hard about coming after the Citizens of this country.  I would hope that they are familiar with the Oath Keepers! Most importantly, I would hope they would understand the oath they swore and would know if the orders given are in line with that oath.

There is that magic phrase there: I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR (OR AFFIRM) THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC. It is obvious to me that our founding fathers KNEW that there would be those that would rise to power and try to take over this country from within and so the oath is specific TO THE CONSTITUTION and against all those who would subvert it.  In this country, today, that subversion includes many in congress, the acting and 2 previous POTUS, DHS, the Commerce department, the federal reserve and central banks, and the IRS.

At this time also, Congress is getting behind Ron Paul’s H.R. 1207 which calls for an audit of the Federal Reserve banks.  Now, there are those in the banking industry who violently oppose this bill.  They are determined that it will not get passed, or, if it does, that it will be a rider along with a bill which would greatly strengthen the Federal Reserves power in financial matters.  Their opposition to this bill is based on falsehoods and lies.  All the bill seeks is an audit, nothing more, yet Ben Bernanke feels this would jeopardize the dealings and confidence of the Citizens of this country.  Just how is that possible?  The American People have bailed them all out.  The banks have taken trillions of dollars from us and don’t want to be accountable?  Oh Really?  Check out this video: It is very short, only 2:38 seconds.

Watch this video by Judge Andrew Napolitano: This is a 6 part series that is a must see. First video 10 minutes.

Watch Ben Bernanke answer questions about H.R. 1207 Actually he stutters though it…

You might also want to view some of the language currently applying to the Federal Reserve such as:

(b) Under regulations of the Comptroller General, the Comptroller General shall audit an agency, but may carry out an onsite examination of an open insured bank or bank holding company only if the appropriate agency has consented in writing. Audits of the Federal Reserve Board and Federal reserve banks may not include—(and if these agencies do NOT consent?  It doesn’t happen)

(1) transactions for or with a foreign central bank, government of a foreign country, or non-private international financing organization; (remember, our government may NOT do this)
(2) deliberations, decisions, or actions on monetary policy matters, including discount window operations, reserves of member banks, securities credit, interest on deposits, and open market operations;
(3) transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee; or

(4) a part of a discussion or communication among or between members of the Board of Governors and officers and employees of the Federal Reserve System related to clauses (1)–(3) of this subsection.

S. 604 is supposed to be the sister bill in the Senate for H.R. 1207, however, since it was introduced by Ben Bernanke I have my doubts. Some of the wording of this bill bothers me. I get the feeling that the bankers know more about this language than I can fathom.

(2) REPORT-

‘(A) REQUIRED- A report on the audit referred to in paragraph (1) shall be submitted by the Comptroller General to the Congress before the end of the 90-day period beginning on the date on which such audit is completed and made available to the Speaker of the House, the majority and minority leaders of the House of Representatives, the majority and minority leaders of the Senate, the Chairman and Ranking Member of the committee and each subcommittee of jurisdiction in the House of Representatives and the Senate, and any other Member of Congress who requests it.

‘(B) CONTENTS- The report under subparagraph (A) shall include a detailed description of the findings and conclusion of the Comptroller General with respect to the audit that is the subject of the report, together with such recommendations for legislative or administrative action as the Comptroller General may determine to be appropriate.’.

As you read the text here it seems to imply that someone OTHER THAN the Controller General will do the audit, that a summary report, (even though detailed), will be given to the Controller General, and in my view, changes nothing and continues business as usual…

This is supposed to be OUR financial institution they are talking about here.  Open the federal reserve up and let us see what the heck these guys are trying to keep so secret!  Wanna know where your trillions of dollars has gone?  Only an audit will tell us that and only if we can get one, with or without, written consent.  That should have been policy since the beginning!

Remember Cash for Clunkers?  Have you read the privacy warning on this website?  Besides the Glenn Beck video which is truly an eyeopener, there is also the policy of the government sharing your personal information with other vendors they do business with.  In case you didn’t see the Glenn Beck video above here is what it says:

This application provides access to the DoT CARS system.  When logged onto the CARS system your computer is considered a Federal computer system and is the property of the U.S. Government.  Any or all uses of this system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected, and disclosed to authorized CARS, DoT and law enforcement personnel, as well as authorized officials of other agencies, BOTH DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN.

And while Snopes.com says this is a fabrication, (False), because it only applied to dealerships, it is still your information going into that system. That is also not to mention the fact that Snopes is a mom and pops website who have been known to get it wrong and refuse to make it right.

Now, you can opt out, but the following is listed if you do so:

If you do not give your consent, either in the manner described in the preceding paragraph or in another manner, your Personal Information will not be shared by us with other entities, except as follows:

* We may disclose your Personal Information, without first notifying you or obtaining your consent, to third-party service providers who assist us to improve our data or our services or to better understand their value to our visitors or to the companies with which we do business;
* We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties if we determine that disclosure is or may be required by law or legal process, is or may be reasonably necessary to honor the Cash For Clunkers Automotive Network commitments to you or to take appropriate action if a visitor is determined by us to have violated our visitor agreements, or is or may be reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of our company, the Cash For Clunkers Automotive Network Automotive Network, our visitors or other individuals or entities.
* We may disclose to third parties portions of the Cash For Clunkers Automotive Network’s log files that show which “Internet service provider” a visitor has used or other visitor information. That information may enable third parties to discover, through that Internet service provider, the identity of a visitor.

While we will not use your Personal Information to contact you or distribute your Personal Information to third parties unless you have given us your consent or as otherwise outlined above, we may use both your Personal Information and other information we may have about you (such as your IP address) or your use of the Cash For Clunkers Automotive Network (such as which pages you have visited or your zip code) to customize or enhance your experience on the Cash For Clunkers Automotive website, including the display of advertisements.

Smells like the Patriot Act in force here. We’ll use your personal private information the way we please and it doesn’t matter if you don’t agree with us.  I’d bet if you don’t agree with them that your IP provider gets a request for your surfing practices on the web so they can just be sure…

More and more I wonder just what those in D.C. are really up to.  I cannot accept that they are treating American Citizens as they are, or that they feel we are that stupid that we cannot see through their bullshit.  It makes me angry that they call us traitors when it is they who are passing unConstitutional laws, imposing illegal taxes, taxing without representation, forcing us to use passports to fly from one State to another, etc.  Soon it will be forced immunizations or relocation to an internment camp where what happens can only bring up visions of Nazi Germany and their extermination camps.  Time the leaders of this country were reminded that the laws apply to all of us.  Let’s make their salaries equal to the job they do for US! Wanna bet the light goes on in the dark then???

Those in Congress, the POTUS, and all the czars,who swore an oath to our Constitution are in blatant violation of that oath.  What will it take for them to remember WHO THEY ARE???  They are part of US!!!  Part of We the People!! We must all come together, be of one mind about our future and our country’s future.  We must form a united front for OUR country!  We cannot keep falling for lies and deceit, promises made and broken, or the two party system any longer.  There is too much at stake.

One Response to “What Is The Federal Government Up To Lately?”

  1. Could it be that congress has ordered the elite aircraft so thay can escape the coming revolution. They have constructed a multi-million $ shelter for themselves beneath capitol building (they call it a museum), but, uh-oh, the military has bunker busting bombs now!
