“Breathes there the man with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
...If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
...The wretch, concentred all in self,
... doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonored , and unsung.”
—Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) excerpt from “The Lay of the Last Minstrel”
“If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.” James Madison (1751-1836) “Father of the US Constitution” (Federalist #51)
The Campaigner in Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, is of course only the most visible element of a vast left-wing conspiracy. Take a stroll through “Discover the Networks” if you doubt me—the “Tides Foundation” is a good place to start. (Note: the connections are so widespread that the webpage may take some time to load—be patient, the network will eventually appear).
You may as well add Republican neo-cons and RINOs to that list, as they are left-wing as well—that is, they support big government and totalitarian rule. True American patriots among our elected officials are scarcer than hen’s teeth these days. Treason is de rigueur among our political elites—although they certainly do not call it that. Nonetheless, treason it is.
By treason I mean attitudes, motives, speech and/or activities that are not simply un-American, but are squarely anti-American in intent and effect. Within the past few years we have seen economic treason, judicial treason, and political treason to name just a few. The great number of treasonous activities presently going on in this country precludes me from making an in-depth analysis, but I will attempt something of an overview.
Rightly or wrongly Obama is seen by various treasonous factions in America as being their figurehead; as representing their interests, and he may therefore in that sense be seen as a man for all treasons. Yet it is not Obama that I wish to focus on in this article, but rather two of the major forms of treason that are prevalent in America today. I am referring to one-world-government and anti-Constitutionalism.
Permit me a brief aside: while I believe in the sentiment “I may not agree with what you say, but I I will fight for your right to say it,” I draw the line at treason. If someone champions one-world-government over the national interests of the United States, then I say “Get the h—l out of my country.” I’ll be damned if I will defend their right to be a traitor. Let me be crystal clear here—I mean treason against the United States of America as a free republic under Constitutional law.
The US Secretary of Defense recently told Congress that he gets his marching orders from the United Nations, not the US Congress. We have a US Navy that now advertises itself as “A global force for good.” I can remember a time when the US Navy’s job was to protect the United States—period. When did we become the world’s police force, and why? Meanwhile, the MSM continues its transformation from the Fourth Estate into a Fifth Column.
The “merchants of death” aka the “military/industrial complex” are making out like bandits, while our rank and file military pay the price—and a dear one it is. They have been, and are being, stabbed in the back by “corporate criminals playing with tanks.”
Behind all the sturm und drang, song and dance of competing ideologies, behind all the smoke and mirrors, a relatively small international cabal of very wealthy elitists stand poised to take over the world. If you do not understand that, then you have not been doing your “homework.” One-world-government means slavery for “we the people,” our children, and so on in perpetuity. The elitists do their best to put a “smiley face” on it, but slavery it is, and slavery it will be.
The elitists have understood that nation-states stood in the way of their global dominance for quite some time—and none more so than the USA. They have been so successful in their efforts to tear apart and destroy America that treason goes on in the highest levels of our government largely unopposed, unremarked upon, or even noticed.
Quite some time ago Edward Everett Hale (1822‚Äì1909) wrote a story about an American (a “poor creature”) who disowned the United States. Hale wrote the story “by way of showing young Americans of to-day [sic] what it is to be A MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY.” For many years Hale’s story “The Man Without a Country” was a staple in our nation’s schools. Today it would be considered retardataire and as quaint as…well, as the US Constitution. The Progressives of today are all men and women without a country—“poor creatures” indeed.
“Sacred oaths” and words of honor to defend the Constitution notwithstanding, today’s politicians, judges, and top military brass largely ignore it. They have all taken the oath, so that makes them all dishonorable liars and/or cowards. Do these feckless frauds even care? Do the concepts of duty, integrity and honor mean anything to them? They probably consider such virtues to be foolishness, meaningful only to chumps and losers.
Regardless of how they feel, “we the people” must rally around the US Constitution and defend it—with our lives if need be. The Declaration of Independence says that all men are created equal, by which is meant that all humans are naturally born free. Our natural state is freedom, but the globalists want to take away our God-given freedom and replace it with man-made “rights,” which they can make or break as they see fit.
I recall how people in the US used to wonder how a civilized society like Germany lost its freedom and ended up being in thrall to a dictator such as Hitler. Well now we know, don’t we? All we have to do is look around us to see the answer. But enough of that—time to move on to the Constitution.
Contrary to liberal myths, America is not, and never has been a democracy. The Founding Framers did not want the United States to be subjected to mob rule, or what they called “majority tyranny,” so they settled on the concept of a republic as being the best answer to the main problem that confronted them—how do you form a government strong enough to protect its citizens, yet restrained enough to not become a danger to them in its own right? They were well aware that humans are (individually and as a whole) a combination of “saints and sinners,” and therefore neither to be entirely trusted, nor despised.
They hashed out many such issues in the “Federalist Papers.” Hamilton taking the cynical view that “...men are ambitious, vindictive, and rapacious,” while Madison took the more generous view that “...there are other qualities in human nature which justify a certain portion of esteem and confidence.” In any event they decided that human nature being what it is (and it has not changed a whit since their day), “Ambition must be made to counter ambition”—that is, a system of “checks and balances” needed to be part of the structure in any new government.
Rather than continuing to discuss that most estimable and wise of documents—the US Constitution—let it suffice to say that it is not an outdated, hoary, irrelevant waste of parchment, but remains perhaps the most important, dynamic and important document ever written.
The US Constitution has not become passé. What has happened is that those who are opposed to the truth and wisdom it contains have waged a war against it on multiple fronts since the day it was first penned. They have unremittingly attacked it economically, socially, culturally, legally, politically and in every other way you can think of—and some you can’t—and things have now reached the point where “we the people” are in great danger of losing the oldest, best, and staunchest protector of our liberties for good.
If you feel that you are unfamiliar with our founding documents—especially the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights—then you may want to avail yourself of the free online course on the Constitution being offered by Hillsdale College. If you feel that you do not have the time to listen to the ten lectures, permit me to suggest that you at least take the short quizzes given as part of each lesson, and copy/paste/save them. They are simple multiple-choice questions and the correct answers are given to any you might miss. Knowing these questions and answers will at least give you the gist of what was and is involved in the Constitution.
By suggesting this I am not advancing the idea that the USA should become a nation of half-baked Constitutional dilettantes. I am saying that widespread familiarity with the basic elements of the US Constitution is needed in order to restore America to being a free republic.
As the saying goes, “Freedom isn’t free,” and if we keep putzing around with it we will lose it for sure. I am reminded of the words of George Washington from his “Circular to the States,” in which he admonished patriots, and warned traitors: “...our Independency and National Character must be supported; Liberty is the Basis, and whoever would dare to sap the foundation, or overturn the Structure, under whatever specious pretexts he may attempt it, will merit the bitterest execration, and the severest punishment which can be inflicted by his injured Country.”
