A Well Regulated Militia …

” I lay on a pile of cow crap and nettles, peering uselessly through weeds growing on a wire fence. I am unable to see more than 12 feet into an open field. Prone, my neck and shoulders hurt as I crane hoping to see far enough so that I can have some warning of advancing forces. I am sweating out buckets, soaking my Battle Dress Uniform (BDU), boonie hat and underwear as thoroughly as if I had been caught in a thunderstorm. My neck is developing a sunburn because, like an idiot, I failed to put sunblock into my kit. Baking in the sun, unable to see anything, feeling hot, bored and useless, I remember why I left the Army . . .

  Rewind a few months. I am very concerned about the lawful lawlessness of Federal State and local governments. Legislation and regulation seem to me to be oriented to favoring the fortunes of politically connected persons and groups rather than the general benefit of all citizens. What they do is legal, but it is immoral.

  The dustup between Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management really focused my attention as it made an abstract argument for overbearing government concrete. On one hand, it is clear that Bundy has dug his heels in and is ignoring the rulings of the authorities – he is on the wrong side of the law. On the other hand Bundy is the only rancher in the area left after years of management by the BLM – an agency supposedly empowered to manage land for the benefit of everyone, even ranchers. I think the Feds are morally wrong and the fines and penalties unjust. Unjust laws ought not be complied with.

  Even so, I am glad nobody went home limping that day when citizens, joined by militia groups, confronted the BLM agents posting an armed guard on a fence between Bundy and his property. To my eyes, an armed revolt against the Feds is a kind of abyss. In the US, our experience with revolution is mixed. If there is another revolt, I am not sure that what replaces the government will be any better. The track record is sketchy at best.

  Further, my impression of self-styled militia groups and their leadership has been pretty low. In the runup to a recent election, I ran into someone at a gun show all decked out in a set of woodland BDU fatigues with patches and a name tape. She growled about how rotten the Federal government is, but when I asked her who she is supporting in an upcoming race, she was ignorant of the candidates. I guess their plan was to walk around dressed up like GI Joe and grumble.”

Anti-Government Citizen Militia Groups Want To ‘Secure The Border’ In Texas

 

 

 

 

” A slew of anti-government groups — many of which participated in the standoff at Cliven Bundy’s Nevada ranch — are recruiting armed volunteers to travel to the Texas-Mexico border as a citizen militia to participate in “Operation Secure Our Border,” which aims to stop the surge of immigrants into the country.”

 

   How did standing up for the Constitution mutate into an anti-government stance ? We of the Patriot/Tea Party movement aren’t “anti-government” … we are anti-corrupt government and anti-Statist government . That puts us in the fine company of our Founders and at odds with the likes of the MSM and Obama/Statists .

 

  The groups, who identify themselves as “Patriots,” “Oathkeepers” and “Three Percenters,” are using social media, blogs and a 24-hour hotline to recruit and mobilize volunteers that will travel to Laredo, carry firearms and attempt to assist law enforcement agencies on the border.

  However, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said they do not “endorse or support any private group or organization from taking matters into their own hands as it could have disastrous personal and public safety consequences.”

 

   There is no surprise that ICE and the Border Patrol do not “endorse” private efforts to secure the border , after all how would it look if private efforts turned out to be more effective than the elaborately funded government entities charged with the task ?

   People might start to ask why we are paying staggering sums of money to fund organizations that are complete failures and if they really begin to question that there is certainly no reason to consider only border security .

U.S. Reconstitutes Group To Fight Homegrown “Extremists”

 

 

 

 

 

” The United States is reviving a law enforcement group to investigate those it designates as domestic terrorists, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday.

  Following hate-motivated shootings such as the one at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City, Missouri in April, federal prosecutors have pressed the need to coordinate intelligence about such criminals on a national level, Justice Department officials said.

  The Department of Justice will reconstitute a task force that was originally formed after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing but dissolved after the Sept. 11, 2001 hijacked plane attacks as law enforcement agencies focused on threats from militants abroad.

  On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement that the United States remains concerned about threats from Islamic extremists, but the group will focus on other motives for attacks within U.S. borders.”

Smear Merchants: Media Damage Their Reputations Covering Boston Marathon Bombings

 

 

” Numerous media outlets jumped on the horrific Boston marathon bombings to levy unfounded accusations and smear-job insinuations that “right-wing” extremists and even the GOP were possibly responsible.

At least two dead and 130 injured in two major explosions? Time to attack our political enemies? How about we report what actually happened and stop speculating.

This is becoming common practice in the mainstream media; particularly over the last four years. Whenever there is a tragedy, before researching what happened, even supposedly credible outlets decide to attack their ideological opponents.

Here is CNN’s Wolf Blitzer musing aloud on air if Patriot’s Day had anything to do with the bombings and allowing his guest Mike Brooks to wander into this territory in unwarranted fashion:”

” It’s clear our government has abandoned the principals this nation was founded upon. They have elevated themselves above the people,and have forgotten the fact that they serve us not the other way around. They ignore our phone calls, delete our emails, and shred our faxes. We can no longer rely on getting their attention with these outdated methods and or rally’s and protests.

Freedom Fighter Radio is urging all who cherish freedom and love our Sovereignty to consider two actions. “

” Americans are wondering what they can do to send a message to Washington and their respective representatives. At least one idea has been proposed. It is non-violent and not a threat towards anyone, but will be something that is heard.

It’s clear our government has abandoned the principals this nation was founded upon. They have elevated themselves above the people,and have forgotten the fact that they serve us not the other way around. They ignore our phone calls, delete our emails, and shred our faxes. We can no longer rely on getting their attention with these outdated methods and or rally’s and protests. “
