THEY’RE ALL GONNA SHOOT AT YOU!!!

matrix-agentgunDaniel Louis Crumpton here wishing to deliver a bit of my First Amendment to all of you. Recently I was listening to JADED with Kim Ochelli on UCY.TV, a radio show I am a frequent guest of myself though not on this particular night. A listener by the name of …”Cracker” called in to express his concerns regarding the recent events in Baltimore in the aftermath of the alleged murder of Freddie Gray while in police custody. “Cracker” began his call by pointing out the rap sheets of police homicide victims and how “these people” were “black thugs”. After host, Kim Ochelli expressed her view that a person’s rap sheet doesn’t warrant an instant death sentence the caller made the Indiana Jones logical leap of faith by switching gears to the idea that all of this was a distraction from the real issue of a police state. “Cracker” points out with no attachment to the details of the Baltimore issue, his contempt for the fact when people complain at police departments they are ignored.

Now, before I get into the meat of this piece I do have to address the opening premise of the caller’s concerns. I don’t do the whole racism thing because quite honestly I think it is just a waste of time due to the fact that I personally don’t believe in “races”, rather I believe in cultures. That being said I don’t really see the need to distinguish a “black thug” over a thug at all, but “Cracker” is more than entitled to make those distinctions for himself. Secondly, I don’t see how the caller could possibly believe that people murdered while in police custody without due process of law could be a distraction from the issue of a growing police state in this country and dismiss those murders due to rap sheets generated by the police. Anyone who is aware of the police state rising knows full well that one of their many tactics is to upcharge those they arrest with anything and everything they can think of. I have personally spoken to many police officers who gloat about up charging all the time with the justification that they know the suspect’s lawyer will plea down anyway, so that might as well throw as much mud against the wall as they can to see what sticks. However, Mr. “Cracker” has no problem whatsoever dismissing the issue of Freddie Gray based on how many statutes and act violations the police could pin on the guy which may or may not be true. As I said before, the Freddie Gray thing will not be the meat of this article but I had to premise the logical nose dive this particular caller began with to prepare you for what is to come.

SURPRISE! YOURE DOOMED!

SURPRISE! YOURE DOOMED!

For the next hour and some change Mr. “Cracker” gives Alex Jones a run for his money as he nearly swallows his phone and with a loud guttural, desperately pessimistic voice essentially declares that all is lost. After establishing that he will completely talk over any opposing views expressed by the host and co-host (because after all, if you can talk the loudest that means you must be right), he uses the ham fisted “rabbit trail” technique when asked direct questions. You know how that works; you ask a direct question and the person who has absolutely no answer replies with a twenty minute story that has no connection to the question so that by the time they are done you will have completely forgotten what you asked to begin with. Mr. “Cracker” then goes on after popping his intellectual ego Viagra to scream to the audience that A. there is a police state coming and B. nothing can be done about it, hence completely demoralizing anyone who happens to think otherwise thereby immobilizing them by means of fear from attempting to do anything about it. Now aint that a great prize at the bottom of the box of Cracker Jacks?

The overzealous caller goes on to outline things that I think we can all agree with such as a fiat currency, globalization, the police state and the collapse of everything as we know it. These are concepts that we are all aware of and concerned about, myself included, however where “Cracker” veers off the course I have set myself upon is at the point when he does a Joker like hair pull and rips through all the avenues of pushing this thing back. Take tyrants to court? Nope, not gonna work. Protest? No chance. Educate the masses? Good luck there. Vote for Liberty candidates? Why vote? Expose the corruption? I’d rather stock up on ammo. Will it work on the federal level? Course not. How about the local level? Unicorns and skittles fella. This guy is a hard liner and makes absolutely sure that by the time he is done ingesting his phone with his predictions of all out nuclear annihilation of the human species the listener is left with the impression that there is no point engaging in anything because he has attempted to shoot down any and all solutions many of us advocate.

saltines“Cracker” points to the mythical date of when the “shit hits the fan” as they say when it will be kill or be killed. Aside from the fact that no one has ever been able to define for me exactly what the “shit hitting the fan” is they typically say it will be when the dollar collapses. I find this an odd indicator of total enslavement by a tyrannical, shadowy elite seeing as how the same people of this sort of mindset will clearly tell you that the establishment of the current dollar was the beginning of total enslavement by a tyrannical, shadowy elite. So let me get this straight; the shadowy elite designed the fiat system of the dollar by establishing the federal reserve in 1913 putting us all in shackles of never ending debt …but if this shackle of the dollar collapses that is when the proverbial “shit will hit the fan”? Is “Cracker” suggesting that the only thing postponing enslavement is enslavement? Your guess is as good as mine and quite frankly this particular caller lost me when he stated that Muslims get a free pass in this country because they are willing to kill people. The first thing I would like to know is what Muslims are getting a free pass at; full price at the local barbeque joint buffet? Secondly, aren’t all those drones flying over Muslim countries and smart bombs blowing Muslim kids to bits sent courtesy of the world’s finest “Christian” nation?

 

The one thing this caller was absolutely sure of is that this thing will NEVER be settled peacefully and I am sure he would be more than happy for you to subscribe to that viewpoint as well. That’s right, he is gonna go down in a Clint Eastwood blaze of glory complete with squinty eye and half chewed cigar as he holds his shotgun up at a legion of Lenco Bearcats as the words “Go ahead punk, make my….oh my god! Oh my god! I’ve been tazed, bitten in the face by a rather large dog, riddled with rubber bullets, real bullets and these nightsticks really hurt while they are thwacking against my dying skull. Maybe I should have thought this whole shooting at the tyrants that wanted me to shoot at them to begin with so they could do this to me thing through before I came out of my woodshed with this cute little shotgun.” See how silly that sounds? The fact of the matter is that people who say they will shoot back will not shoot back no matter how much they say they will because if such people actually would, they would have done it a long, long time ago. My Dad always told me to never take a man who talks about bringing a world of ass whooping on you seriously because he is overcompensating with his mouth what he isn’t willing to do with his ass. That goes for bullies and gun barrel licking doomsday prophets waiting for feces to fly from a fan.

GET OFF MY LAWN!!

The caller indicated he was an older gent that was in Vietnam and knew from the age of 16 that this country was turning into a police state…but still made the decision of participating in an unconstitutional institution (military) and furthering the agenda of a police state by being a pawn in a “police action” overseas. Thanks guy! We young whipper snappers really appreciate you passing the buck on down to us so that we are forced to find solutions you were too apathetic to deal with in your day and too pessimistic to even consider as options today. Your country’s prodigy is in debt to you Mr. “Cracker”.

The fact of the matter is that the caller is wrong about this Revolution. Yes it is true that American citizens are armed to the teeth just as it is true that the police and military are as well and what a conflict would spell is simply mutually assured destruction. At the end of the day the best interest of both so called sides will be is self-preservation; and that excludes mutually assured destruction. When you rule that out the only option you are left with is Peaceful Revolution. What needs to be understood is that Revolutions transpire differently with the passing of time, though the purpose of Revolution is to essentially reboot something which has degraded. Revolutions are upgrades and anyone who believes we are ever going to go back to the good ole Republic that started in 1776 is sadly mistaken. No, as I always say and as your eyes see each and every time you visit our site, Revolution is Evolution. We aren’t going to restore the Republic, this is true. What we are going to do is walk through these birth pangs fearlessly and on the other side give birth to something far, far better. People such as “Cracker” will still be cracking rocks together waiting for a spark from the Neanderthal age as people such as myself and you hold up high the flaming torch of Liberty from the rising of a new species.

As for the claim that words are useless in Revolution I would ask people of such persuasion to remember the fact that the sword of Washington would have had no power if not for the pen of Paine and what more are the rights in our Constitution than mere words? No, words are the most effective weapon in any battle because they have more power than any bullet in that they can blow minds away rather than brains. As Thom Yorke says; what’s the point of instruments, words are a sawed off shotgun! So if you are determined to fight in this thing you best reload; as for me my pen is my sword and my keyboard is my AR-15.

 

JADED –CRACKER CALLS AT 43:00

JASON THE FIRST: “I’M JUST DOING MY JOB”

Police incite violence everywhere every day. Is this fact lost on you?

Perhaps it is time to change police actions so things don’t reach such a fevered pitch? Blaming the symptoms of a problem I.E. civil unrest rather than the glaring problem of a disrespectful militarized police force leading things up to this point is naive and irresponsible, in my humble opinion. When/if things do return to normal? What changes? When the answer is “not much”?

The problem remains as do the symptoms. There is no justice.

No justice = no peace.

Are you really that surprised? Police can do anything they want to whoever they want whenever they want for whatever reason they want and get away with it. Lying and embellishing facts on police reports is common and encouraged. Are you surprised there is a riot and looting? Attitude reflects leadership. Every form of government is operating in near total anarchy and is out of control. The Constitution is dead and completely ignored.

That law (the constitution) is/has being ignored by every single person that has taken an oath to it. Some of those same people steal loot and incite and commit violence against American people all day everyday under “color of law” that is really not law at all and we all know it. Attitude reflects leadership. Leadership operates in near complete anarchy from the top down and the bottom up. When this shooting is eventually deemed “justified” (as it may well be) and the riots and looting stops?

The real under lying problem of a disrespectful militarized police force enforcing unconstitutional laws on nonviolent peaceful people will remain. I will gladly do “their job.”  I’d lose it very quickly as it is their responsibility not to enforce unconstitutional laws. I will not enforce unconstitutional laws. What you see now is a result of these “good men” doing their job while ignoring their responsibility. I work and have worked to change laws and legislatures as well as cops and departments.

No one is listening and everyone blames someone else.

Seems riots are the result and that is unfortunate. You can’t treat pneumonia with cough drops. The cough is not the problem. Responsibility must be taken, from the  Top down or bottom up. If police are the bottom? Their refusal to take part is necessary. A responsibility that seems to be ignored and somehow celebrated.

Just doing my job” where in history have we heard that?

It ends very badly, then and now.

Protectin’ and Servin’

N.D.A.A. headed to the Senate. Who voted for it?

NDAA

 

ATLANTA, GA. – Government Bill H.R. 4435 (N.D.A.A) for Fiscal Year 2015 has overwhelmingly passed the House (325 – 98) and is headed for the Senate. In a weird turn of events, every member of Congress for the State of Georgia, with the exception of Congressman John Lewis (D), voted in favor of this bill.

H.R. 4435 is riddled big government spending to the tune of $602 billion and a continuation of the war effort in Afghanistan until FY2018.

In what seemed like a “no-brainer” (based on what we know from congressional members seeking higher office, each of them vehemently opposing this legislation), every congressman in the State of Georgia voted for this bill – with the exception of Congressman John Lewis.

In an interview with Congressman Paul Broun before the Savannah debate, he stated that the indefinite detention provisions were not in the 2014 N.D.A.A. and he was correct.

So, why am I attacking Broun? It’s simple: He made himself out to be a staunch opponent of just about anything N.D.A.A. I am here to prove that his assertions of opposition and my assertion of opposition are two very different things.

The previsions are in the Authorization for use of Military Force (AUMF), which was created under George W. Bush. However, in 2012, Broun voted for H.R. 4310 N.D.A.A. 2012, which contained sections 1021 and 1022 in which Congress vested the power in themselves to authorize the indefinite detention of an American Citizen without due process of the law. Now that the bill has been changed, congress relinquished this power back to the president – and the N.D.A.A. only “upholds current law”, that being the AUMF.

So, the next time you hear anyone say that the N.D.A.A. doesn’t allow for the indefinite detention of American Citizens, you can call them out on their nonsense. You are now armed with the verifiable truth that the provisions remain, only in the hands of the President and the FISA courts.

In Section 1075, the FAA Modernization and Reform Act is again brought up, with continued authorization to allow the testing of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or as we like to call them, drones. Thanks to the 2012 N.D.A.A., congress mandated that 35,000 drones be integrated into our national airspace, by 2015.

In the North Georgia Mountains, Gilmer County residents fought back against the Federal Government and the private sector from taking control of the counties airport, preventing it from being used as a drone testing facility. Thanks to the late, Commissioner Randy Bell, the opposition to this program was successful in denying the State of Georgia, Georgia Tech Research Institute and Federal Government from obtaining the authorization by the Board of Commissioners to use their facility for such programs. However, the bill remains and they have moved on to other areas of the nation where they don’t need permission to use the lands in which they conduct the data-link testing.

One very important issue pertaining to this bill is found in Section 1216:

United States plan for sustaining the Afghanistan National Security Forces through the end of fiscal year 2018

Yes, you read that right. We are continuing the war effort in Afghanistan until FY2018. Contingency operations will continue for a very long time. American lives will continue to be lost and innocent men, women and children will continue to die via drone warfare.

We at zeninthecar will update you on the status of the bill as it moves through the Senate.

D.L. CRUMPTON

LAST EPISODE: DERRICK GRAYSON: DRIVE TIME ZEN

 

With the recent killing of James Boyd, the camper from New Mexico, an uproar has begun in this country. With the senseless murder of a man doing little more than setting up a place in which to sleep in the middle of the desert, the true nature of our law enforcement agencies has become clear. They are not here to protect and serve, rather they are here to enforce statutes and acts with the barrel of a gun. As more and more video is being uploaded of police brutality on a daily basis, we as Americans have to ask ourselves when enough is enough.
In the following episode of ZEN IN THE CAR T.V., Daniel Louis Crumpton paints a picture of the horror we as Liberty activists are facing when dealing with the police. In it he shares some disturbing footage of cruel acts performed by the police on average citizens and explains our right to defend ourselves against them when they step outside the confines of the Constitution. The following are some of the references for the “Stand your Ground” law he mentions near the conclusion:
“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting officer’s life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been committed.”

“An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction, and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v. People, 75 111. 491; reaffirmed and quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v. Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau, 241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.

“When a person, being without fault, is in a place where he has a right to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel by force, and if, in the reasonable exercise of his right of self defense, his assailant is killed, he is justified.” Runyan v. State, 57 Ind. 80; Miller v. State, 74 Ind. 1.

“These principles apply as well to an officer attempting to make an arrest, who abuses his authority and transcends the bounds thereof by the use of unnecessary force and violence, as they do to a private individual who unlawfully uses such force and violence.” Jones v. State, 26 Tex. App. I; Beaverts v. State, 4 Tex. App. 1 75; Skidmore v. State, 43 Tex. 93, 903.

“An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault and battery.” (State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260).

“Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case, the person attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer and may be resisted by the use of force, as in self- defense.” (State v. Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100).

“One may come to the aid of another being unlawfully arrested, just as he may where one is being assaulted, molested, raped or kidnapped. Thus it is not an offense to liberate one from the unlawful custody of an officer, even though he may have submitted to such custody, without resistance.” (Adams v. State, 121 Ga. 16, 48 S.E. 910).

“Story affirmed the right of self-defense by persons held illegally. In his own writings, he had admitted that ‘a situation could arise in which the checks-and-balances principle ceased to work and the various branches of government concurred in a gross usurpation.’ There would be no usual remedy by changing the law or passing an amendment to the Constitution, should the oppressed party be a minority. Story concluded, ‘If there be any remedy at all … it is a remedy never provided for by human institutions.’ That was the ‘ultimate right of all human beings in extreme cases to resist oppression, and to apply force against ruinous injustice.’” (From Mutiny on the Amistad by Howard Jones, Oxford University Press, 1987, an account of the reading of the decision in the case by Justice Joseph Story of the Supreme Court.

As for grounds for arrest: “The carrying of arms in a quiet, peaceable, and orderly manner, concealed on or about the person, is not a breach of the peace. Nor does such an act of itself, lead to a breach of the peace.” (Wharton’s Criminal and Civil Procedure, 12th Ed., Vol.2: Judy v. Lashley, 5 W. Va. 628, 41 S.E. 197).

It was once said of America, that we were a terrible dragon waking up. Let it be said now that what is waking up is a terrible Red, White and Blue dragon. Enjoy ZEN IN THE CAR T.V.

SABRINA BLACK: THE IMPORTANCE OF THE 2ND AMENDMENT

SABRINA BLACK

SABRINA BLACK

ZEN IN THE CAR T.V. had the opportunity to meet a young woman by the name of Sabrina Merganthaler Black in our travels of activism and couldn’t help but persuade her to be a regular contributor. We found her insights as a mother, a wife, and an activist to be quite enlightening as well as her optimistic spirit in regards to the state of our country and the state of our world. In a time when it seems more trendy to follow what Paris Hilton is wearing or what she isn’t its very refreshing to hear from strong female voices that are more attuned with what is actually going on in the world. In this second American Revolution there is no doubt that women need to have a voice in regards to the direction our country is being taken in and we are proud to welcome Sabrina Black as a voice for others who are still slugging about in ignorance. We hope you enjoy.

SABRINA BLACK ON THE SECOND AMENDMENT

RESUSCITATIN’ some SECESSITATIN’

I’m sure that by now all of you are aware that quite a few states have taken the time to shoot the federal government nice little petitions requesting they be allowed to peacefully secede from the union. Did you catch that? I said they are requesting…to be allowed…to no longer be subject to the federal government. As much as I expected, while reading over a few of these petitions, to see them end with “Pretty please, with cherries on top”; alas I did not.

Can you imagine your cherub, cheeked, little four year old waddling into the living room one evening while you’re preoccupied with the television…wait for it…programming, and looking you square in the eye with a most serious demeanor, and pristine British accent, saying;
“Papa. Mama. I appreciate all that the two of you have done for me. I honestly do. You have been with me from the cradle up until now and for the most part it’s been tolerable. You have provided some food. You have provided some shelter. But now, I fear that you are becoming dictatorial and overbearing. When I was younger you tickled me. You sang to me. You rocked me to sleep, and you even took the trouble of cleaning my unspeakables when I soiled them so. Now though, that I have progresses beyond crawling on all fours, and have developed quite the vocabulary far, far ahead of …how do you say…goo goo, gah gah…you have started to change. You have begun telling me things like, no. You have begun raising your voice at me when I do things that three years ago were adorable. You have begun giving me rules of what I can touch or what I can’t put in my mouth. All these things were somewhat understandable to me; I could see how you might simply be attempting to protect me. But with this latest encroachment of my rights, this …this…this horrid thing you have cooked up called ‘bed time’ is just the final straw. I have been pushed to my line. This far. No Further. So dear Mama and Papa, will you kindly relinquish your parentage over me, that I might be free?”

After a very long silence, littered with back and forth blinks of astonishment from Mama to Papa, the time has come to introduce the encroachment, little cherub cheeks, has yet to be oppressed by; the ass whipping.

Do I think these petitions are going to go anywhere? Honestly, no. I expect them to be mostly ignored by the media, no matter how many signatures they get, and completely dismissed by the white house as silly. And that’s granting they acknowledge them at all. Sorry petition signers, but I just don’t think you are going to get the response you are looking for. I’m sure Obama appreciates you helping him compile an enemies list though; frees Janet Napolitano up to finally take that Pilates class she’s been neglecting. That being said, I certainly wouldn’t want it to be construed that I am looking down my nose at the Right of States to secede. Nor do I think that initiating these petitions is a waste of time. Quite the contrary.

For anyone who has actually been paying attention the world around them, specifically in the former land of the Free and Brave, the cold truth is now coming home that Freedom truly isn’t free. And you can’t purchase Freedom on the sands of lands you can’t pronounce. No, Freedom has always been in the guardianship of a nation’s people. Not it’s political system, or its elected servant’s well crafted legislation’s, designed to cloak the tyranny with pages and pages of words and words connecting to other words in other pages with sections and subsections, and addendum’s to said subsections. No, Republics are always established and hopefully maintained, by a collection of people that actually understand terms such as “Unalienable Rights” and “All men are created equal”. It is when such a people slumber that the Freedoms protected under Republics begin to slip away and my have we been asleep.

Over the past ten or so years alone, We the People have allowed the federal government to invade a limitless amount of other nations without declarations of war (because as long as you don’t call a war, war, you don’t have to declare. Thanks Georgy boy, we really appreciate that precedent). We have allowed paranoid politicians to craft the Patriot Act and the NDAA under the guise of protecting our Rights by violating our Rights, and we are now offering up our young to the TSA for patriotic cavity searches. The Department of Homeland Security has turned its rhetoric from Islamic extremism to domestic extremism, and now the profiling debate is moot because we are all suspects. The drones we have been using to stack up millions of dead, civilian bodies in Iraq and elsewhere are now hovering over our suburbs, and soon we will all be mandated to carry our papers at all times. Now that We the People are starting to perk up and pay attention to such things as election fraud, and off shore bankers having made off with all our gold a long, long time ago; it seems that the federal government just so happens to need a whole lot of hollow point bullets.

Now, I am a peaceful human being, and do not believe in any form of pre-emptive violence; and do not believe that there is, nor will ever be a dilemma which cannot be resolved peacefully. I believe that violence is the result of men, who in power at the time are lazy and unimaginative. However, when you mention secession, it automatically evokes in the uninformed, the emotion of fear. They, who actually have the vocabulary to understand the word, are brought to images of the civil war. They automatically think that even the mention of seceding will ultimately bring about such a civil war.
While looking through the comments of some fake face book friends, I came across this one (of course I’ll not give the name of the commenter as to not ostracize him as the village idiot).
A couple of years ago I went to the Andersonville National Cemetery with the Boy Scouts to place flags on the graves of fallen Civil War soldiers. It was littered with grave stones everywhere of soldiers who gave their lives to preserve the Union. It blows my mind that 150 years later we would bring up the option of seceding because we don’t agree with the selection of the president. I did not vote for him and do not agree with most of his policies, nevertheless, he was elected as president in a free election and this is a shameful option to consider. I remember thinking during the 2000 election how irreprehensible the Democrats were behaving by insisting on recount after recount when the vote in Miami-Dade County was conclusive. I remember thinking that was one of the differences between Democrats and Republicans. That we would never stoop to being cry-babies because we lost an election. Make no mistake; one of the things that make the USA great is the rule of law, that we all obey it. It gives us stability. Extremism… (and yes secession is one of the most extreme measures that can be taken)….leads to instability and revolutions

Now, though this person has much to be desired in the area of knowing anything about history, and what form of government our Founders handed to us, his concern is a legitimate one. His fear is a legitimate fear. If a State were to secede, how can it survive off the tit of the federal government? Isn’t the idea of a divisible union treasonous? Shouldn’t we obey the will of a mob in a mock election, and change our Republic to a socialist state, because that is the will of the democratically elected representatives of the empire?

The simple truth is that this guy is afraid. As well as many are, or should be. Now that these petitions are surging in signers, the very word, the very concept, is becoming an option in the minds of many. The word secede, is being googled. As that happens, more and more people will see that it is not synonymous with war. That there is a way it can be done peacefully, in fact, it is inevitability. The box of Pandora is open. The notion that the United States, are, and have always been separate, and equal States is now becoming commonplace and as the economy continues to plummet, more and more will begin to adopt this philosophy. As we watch the countries of old, topple overseas; we also see them giving rise to something new. Perhaps this is the very thing our country is going through. Perhaps our country isn’t static; perhaps it is susceptible to change.

Of course, the best response to the village idiot’s comment that I could see was:
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 affect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a LONG TRAIN OF ABUSES AND USURPATIONS, pursing 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.” The Declaration of Independence — This country was founded by extreme secessionists.

Maybe these petitions won’t grab the response most hope they will. But one thing they will not do is fade away. The concept has escaped. It is in men’s minds. Once again people are beginning to question if the ruling elite actually have our best interests in mind. Now, last time, we had a man hell bent on doing all he could to keep the States united, so much so, that he was willing to spark a civil war. This time, while things are still pleasant, still proper, still polite; will our executive take a new route? Will he allow the peaceable part? Well an optimist can always point out that the waters we are in remain eternally; uncharted.

Georgia’s FEMAgency: A Tour of the Pit in the Peach

For me there is nothing more therapeutic than enclosing myself within the modern equivalent of a sacred cave, the car, and riding the spine of our state’s highways and byways. With an arsenal of music, a lot of mile markers to zip past, and a bright enough day you can pretty much clean out your karma closet of all those cob webs you’ve been neglecting toot sweet. You can take in the beauty of our state’s landscape with its rolling hills, vast plains, green forests and dirt paths and appreciate where you live,…except for once in a while you see a cancer cell in the lungs of Liberty. It’s usually hiding behind a billboard or tucked nicely behind a bush at the top of an on ramp while beaming its radar down below where it is not seen for a distance of at least five hundred feet for all surrounding traffic to see. It certainly does bring you down a bit whilst seeking nirvana on the road when a revenue generating vulture fly’s by your eyes. It reminds you that society still has a long way to go with that evolving thing when you see that a majority of the people think its sane to put people in cages for victimless “crimes” and this act is tax payer funded. So, if seeing that Smokey brings you down a bit, then what would the following trek through Georgia do to your psyche?

BANE

You click it or ticket and turn the key. The box comes to life and the neon digital readout on the stereo says “Single Serving Jack”. The head begins to bop but not so much as to knock the steaming cup of coffee at your lips onto your lap. Seat aligned. Steering wheel adjusted and its out the driveway and down I-75 for a lap to Tifton from Warner Robins. This is roughly 83 exits and a handful of counties, yet making this trip on a weekly basis I notice something different today. There are no less than three cruisers from each county I have to cut through lining the interstate as black and congregated like the black vultures picking the bones from a deer’s corpse to the side. “How odd” I think, “What are the chances that for the past week or so every county from Houston to Tift just so happens to be doing speed enforcement on the interstate …at the exact same time? Surely this isn’t coordinated and I quickly shake it off because obviously this is to protect me from evil Muslims…and really smart “Dark Knight” fans who have the ability to transmute from Bane to the Joker in less than 48 hours…and former veterans that specialized in psychological operations in the military. Yep, pretty sure that escalade with its hatch opened and all the owners bags on the road had a weapon of mass destruction in the back so thank goodness 5.0 rolls like that. Of course after counting more police on the interstate than actual exits I have to go through, I decide to take some back roads on the way back, maybe even swing through Cordele to grab a coffee.

THE JOKER…EASY TO MIX UP I KNOW

 

Besides the creepy fact that woodland camo trucks of all sorts having been passing into this area with “Highway Patrol” stenciled on the side, what other reason would I not have to cruise down highway 300 a stones throw, and oh my! What’s that? What are they turning the former Highway patrol complex (basically a bay door garage and an office)into? Nothing nefarious I’m sure. Just the “Crisp County Emergency Management and Detention Center” complete with double razor wired fencing. Gee, sure is warm as a teddy bear fresh from the drier to know that GEMA made a baby with DHS smack dab in the middle of this rural farming community…intersected on two major highways…near an active train track facility…kinda like Germany did…you know…during Dub Dub Deuce…when all those people were rounded up…member?…in big trucks?…and trains?…and taken to …detention facilities?…and…and well you know the rest. I have to giggle at my momentary paranoia and turn on a little Hannity so I can be reassured that that detention center is for radical islamisist as opposed to radical fundamentalists such as himself and normal people such as myself. Whew, that was close because I was starting to think we were living in a socialistic society for a second.

Take some more back roads and before you know it I pass by the brand spanking new Bleckley County Law Enforcement Center out in the middle of the friggin boonies in a town which basically is as one horse as you can get these days. So in a county with more cows than people it makes sense to spend millions of tax payers’ dollars on a facility to make damn sure no cow thieves go a puttin’ shoes on bovine and throwing ole Barney off the trail. Those are some nice looking razor wires guys. Shiny as the tracks near the local train depot too.

I start to wonder if my own town is just as safe from cow thieves and islamisisisisis and as I drive into town at the end of the day I’m comforted to see nearly unmarked, black cruisers with the words “field supervision team” on them patrolling my streets. Yay,… and to double my pleasure there are almost matching SUVs with lights, bumper bars and “WRAFB Emergency Response team” creeping around too. Feeling like that teddy bear again because my insides are just getting warm and fuzzed knowing how safe I am all of a sudden. If only we had one of those dete….Law Enforcement centers. Oh wait! Happy days! Happy days indeed for what do I see at the end of the main strip which has recently been lined with very sophisticated cameras paid for by Homeland Security? Go on. Guess. That’s right masculine’s and feminine’s, coming along nicely on what once was called First Street but now called Armed Forces BLVD is the future Warner Robins Law Enforcement Center. Complete with a forensics lab and a holding facility for all the maniacal criminals that have our town in total anarchy with their relentless crime sprees.

As I look at it while I drive over the bumps of the …wait for it…railroad track, I just grin because I live in a Republic and don’t have to fear that my rights will be taken from me by force by government for its own gain to my own detriment. Wishing to know more about this Law Enforcement Center I boot up the magic internet machine and go to my cities public website. I try to see the page regarding this center and shucks, it tells me I’m not authorized to view that page. No problem. Maybe I can glean its purpose by reading some articles from the local news outlets? Perhaps I’ll get all the details from this article which tells me that the mayor of my town, Chuck Shaheen, says he would use eminent domain to take the land from a property owner being bullish over selling before ground broke at the facility. Go Shaheen! It tickles my nethers to know my town has such a stand up guy willing to take from each according to their ability so that all can be given according to their need. Because if there is anything this town needs its more detectives and detention cells. See a guy who looks like his genetics are so screwed up he copulated with himself and conceived himself can make a real difference for the country after all.

As I pull back into my driveway from a long days trek I have no problem feeling safe within the confines of my home knowing my smart meter outside is probably making sure that Janet Napolitano knows right away if a brown skin person sneaks into my house to kill me because I am free. My state is doing so much to protect me, I think the next time I see a public official I will tell them how much I appreciate their service. Coincidently I just so happen to be up for a drivers license renewal. Perhaps I’ll thank the DMV after I give them my original birth certificate, social security number, proof of marriage, and two proofs of residence for the new Real ID licenses being phased in. Better yet, maybe I’ll call guvna Deal and thank him for allowing all these safety protocols to kick in by not evoking the tenth amendment and putting a stop to it all.
I lay my head on my pillow and drift right off to the sounds of choppers buzzing by my house at all hours of the night to rest for the next day’s drive. Nite, Nite Georgia. It’s time to go to sleep.

Left Versus Right are Hands Around Your Throat: State of our Union 2

LEFT AND RIGHT=HANDS AROUND THE THROAT

The two party system will save us. It after all has done so well for us thus far has it not? Well lets walk that path, toss a pebble in the pond at its end and see what ripples remain. When I was a kid Reagan was president. Republican guy. Now I cannot say fairly that I was observing politics from one to nine, but hindsight is said to be crystal clear and I have this funny affinity for history. Though his well written words were brilliantly delivered with all the delight of an overrated actor from the fifties, his actions were somewhat of a one eighty. Yes, we can thank Mr. Reagan for the second coming of prohibition ( a grand success if you happened to be inclined to become employed by organized crime ) known commonly as the war on drugs. What better way to say I’m a conservative than by using the force of government to dictate the decisions a people will make in regards to personal choices about what goes into an individual’s body? Now correct me if I’m in the red on this but when you a declare a war on drugs are you not begging for more departments to regulate such a war, more bureaucrats to people them and of course we can’t forget the cherry on top; namely grunts willing to knock a door over with a battering ram in your local suburb and arrest Jimmy and Tammy down the street with zip ties for having seeds from an herb in their home. Don’t think for a second we aren’t going to pay for all that and the cool batmanesque toys said grunts will demand in order to lock more people up for non violent offenses in corporation ran prisons to be pimped out for slave labor such as their phasers, tasers, mace, body armor, zip ties, zip ties, zip ties, combat boots, l-rads, armored cruisers, zip ties, license plate readers, laptops, facial recognition scanners, zip ties, handcuffs, zip ties, portable thumb scanners, night sticks, flashlight, zip ties, blast shield, incendiary helmets, zip ties, holding facilities, zip ties, zip tie holders and holders for zip tie holders. So with the new war on drugs, the government only grew. Let’s not even mention the department of education, or the ministry of truth if rights be told. Though the rhetoric of this president was bold and as constitutional as you could hope for, his actions told a different tale.

So as my pineal gland began to calcify, and the grade levels kept going up, I found myself aware of a man named George Bush. Now at the time this guy came to power I was just discovering that girls weren’t all that icky after all, so forgive the foggy recall. However the first thing I remember regarding ole George, read my lips, Bush was the images of night vision goggles in a desert somewhere complete with neon dots ripping across the sky and tearing open anything in their paths. I seem to remember something about pre emptive war in a nation controlled by a dictator we installed a few years prior. Throughout the Bush years we continued to hear about this “New World Order” that now doesn’t seem to exist, and if you utter its name it’s as if the words had never been strung together at all. I seem to remember that though my country was at war, I was not, and though there had been people that had died, I had not.

By my next major biological leap I understood that my president was William Jefferson Clinton. Ole slick Willy as the people in the radio call him. Now this is awkward because I now am pretty sure that I had probably not completed the entire process of puberty, however there must have been some residual, psychological sort of element which altered me forever. I was quite confused on what to think about a man in the greatest seat of power caught up in scandal after scandal with the ugliest of interns in the ugliest of circumstances. Sprinkled in between his escapades of ugly women were the bombings. If memory serves me well we bombed Somalia, Yugoslavia, Bosnia, Haiti, Croatia, Zaire, Liberia, Albania, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yugoslavia and Yemen during the peaceful democratic administration. Another observation of Clinton’s administration that has always stuck with me was the incidents at Ruby Ridge, followed closely by Waco Texas. Now granted I had yet to fully cement a worldview at the time do to rabid skirt chasing, however I still managed to understand that something was terribly wrong with what happened in both instances. It was obvious that both groups of people had come to the conclusion that government was destructive and intrusive and wanted nothing to do with it. Each made the decision to detach themselves as much as possible from the sphere of governments influence and simply be left alone to live life as they saw fit. Their reward for such a bold notion? Snipers, tanks, ATF. The federal government committed mass murder on live television under the guise of defeating an evil cult and its leader who was characterized as an arms dealer of sorts. In short, the theory that these people had that the government was destructive and intrusive was not only made but underlined in bold and ended with an exclamation point which cost them their lives.

The attitude of a lot of people back then was that the media was telling the truth and those cultists got what they deserved for having such crazy beliefs. Yes, most people flippantly made jokes about Jeffrey Dahmer running to Waco Texas with a bottle of barbeque sauce before the bodies of the women and children that died there had even stopped smoldering with smoke. It was only after a series of years that I along with most other people actually contemplated the events of Ruby Ridge and Waco Texas, watched all the footage of the raids on underground VHS tapes, which ultimately wound up on the newly budded internet, and brought pause to the usual conclusion that the government did what was right and perhaps those that were killed were victims of a government that was starting to creep more and more into all our daily lives. After all, maybe the beliefs of the Weavers and the followers of David Koresh weren’t as insane as we were lead to believe and even if they were what would keep some Washington bureaucrats from one day pointing at you and I with the same accusations of being in a cult or gun running because we have more than a couple of firearms in our compound…I mean home.

The Clinton administration had yet another gift for us, the American people, before passing the torch over to the republicans to “straighten things out”, the now overshadowed and epic terrorist event of the Oklahoma City bombing would be the beginning of the federal government turning its sights (both closed circuit cameras as well as AR-15s) inwards towards its own people. You see, with the hindsight thing we spoke about earlier, you can look back and see that even back before the internet boom when information travelled at the speed of fax there was a minority of people who still managed to keep up with what was going on in the world and were outraged at the state sponsored murder at Rudy Ridge and Waco and investigations were looming. Sparsely sprinkled throughout the United States were still patches of people calling themselves patriots who had managed to have the principals of our founding fathers engrained within them, having been passed on for generations. These people began to point out that government was overstepping its bounds in every way with militarism and over regulations and the expansion of the welfare state and their sounds of descent had to be silenced.

So when a “homegrown” Timmy McVeigh was plastered across all our television screens as someone who was angry at the government, specifically the incidents at Ruby Ridge and Waco Texas, those who were speaking out about the government seemed to lower their voices for a little while. Who wants to be the nail sticking up to get the hammer in a world where “domestic terrororists” ”militia groups” and “patriot organizations” allegedly were responsible for the dead babies in the only federal building in the country with a nursery. Sure there had been ATF agents tipped off not to go to work that morning, sure there was already a bomb squad having coffee or what have you the morning of right across the street, and yes multiple news outlets captured said bomb squads hours later pulling back to retrieve secondary devices that were reported to be much bigger than the initial device. These little “details” managed to escape the mainstream media just as the notion that there had actually been a second man involved who seemingly vanished into thin air as well as Langley Virginia’s memory hole.

As deranged and farfetched as those years seemed, you would hardly believe me when I say it gets much much worse unless you too also had heard of the man known as George Dubya.

To be continued…
