Judge Arrested for Treason by “We The People”

Video.

This event is really astonishing, not because of its audacity, but because of its legality.  Yes, it’s legal.

Essentially, a judge was violating his oath of office by abusing his authority to suppress evidence and violate requisite rules of procedure.  In so doing he was trying to stack the deck against an individual for whom he, for whatever reason, thought should be hammered by “the system.”

Instead, he was hammered by the other half, those people who found his actions to be treasonous, and who acted on their authority under common law to arrest the judge and have him booked him on charges.  Interestingly enough, local law enforcement also refused to do their sworn duty by refusing to arrest the judge themselves.  In response, the people did their duty.

This has interesting implications with respect to the situation over here in America.  Many people Obama’s actions as treasonous, and have called for his impeachment because of his treason.  Yet Congress so far has refused to impeach Obama, a lack of action which has many people scratching their heads as to why.  Is it because Congress thinks it’ll go nowhere?  Are they afraid of causing civil unrest if they take action?  Does the Obama administration and his non-elected czars have strongholds over key members of Congress, such that if they act they’ll find themselves in some sort of legal or political cross-hairs?

Regardless of why Congress has refused to act on the rather obvious, if not blatant facts, the people are considering their options, beginning with simply voting out everyone in Congress who has refused to act on behalf of the people, as they were elected to do.

Exercising Our Constitutional Rights is Neither an Offense Nor Cause for Alarm

For many of us, our Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms is more than a right. It’s our duty. When we swore to “protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” we undertook an oath to perform a duty.

There are many ways to go about protecting our Constitutional rights within the law, but the most effective way to protect our rights while informing the minds of the ignorant, a large part of the “domestic enemy,” is to simply exercise them throughout the normal course of our day.

When I carry my firearm, I don’t go out of my way to be noticed. In fact, I wear conservative clothing and behave normally, the same as I always behave.

I take the same approach towards our other rights, including freedom of speech.

I exercise my rights because of what happens when we don’t exercise them.  People forget what they look like.  People forget that they even have rights.  Societies become “too polite,” which is a nice way of saying “politically correct.”  Norms shift from freedom, the objective Constitutional standard of the free exercise of one’s rights, to the subjective politically correct standard based on avoiding “making a fuss,” “rocking the boat,” or “offending someone.”

Offense is not a legitimate reason to forfeit one’s rights.  Neither is alarm.  The Supreme Court has already decided this on several fronts, including racial equality, freedom of speech, and the right to keep and bear arms.  While we may attempt to minimize offense or alarm in the exercise of our rights, it is impossible to eradicate either, and attempting to do so undermines the rights which it is our duty to protect!  Let’s face it – people are offended by all kinds of things:  The color of my skin, the length of my hair, the fact I served in the military.  Heck, some folks are problem alarmed by the length of my hair, or the fact that I drive a truck!

Are those reasons to forfeit my right to keep and bear arms?  They are not.

What about alarm?  “OMG!  He’s got a gun!”  Thankfully, that’s not a statement I’ve heard any time in the 22 years I’ve been carrying a firearm, either on or off duty, including the last 2-1/2 years during which I’ve predominantly open carried.  In fact, I’ve been thanked more than a dozen times, and have had at least that many conversations during which I’ve been asked about the local laws governing our Second Amendment rights.

I’ll close with a final thought:  Holding true to what’s right will always offend some people, and it will always alarm others.

The 0.45% by Nick Palmisciano – So few of us have actually served in the military throughout the Global War on Terror

Why the Military is Key:  This piece of art is a wonderful tribute to those of us who have served our country.  Unfortunately, it has been wrongly been attributed to many other authors.  Nick is the original author, and I’ve provided a link at the bottom to his work, website, and the story surrounding this article.

 

The 0.45%

by

Nick Palmisciano

I remember the day I found out I got into West Point.

My mom actually showed up in the hallway of my high school and waited for me to get out of class. She was bawling her eyes out and apologizing that she had opened up my admission letter. She wasn’t crying because it had been her dream for me to go there. She was crying because she knew how hard I’d worked to get in, how much I wanted to attend, and how much I wanted to be an infantry officer. I was going to get that opportunity.

That same day two of my teachers took me aside and essentially told me the following: “Nick, you’re a smart guy. You don’t have to join the military. You should go to college, instead.”

I could easily write a tome defending West Pont and the military as I did that day, explaining that USMA is an elite institution, that separate from that it is actually statistically much harder to enlist in the military than it is to get admitted to college, that serving the nation is a challenge that all able-bodied men should at least consider for a host of reasons, but I won’t.

What I will say is that when a 16 year-old kid is being told that attending West Point is going to be bad for his future then there is a dangerous disconnect in America, and entirely too many Americans have no idea what kind of burdens our military is bearing.

In World War II, 11.2% of the nation served in four years. In Vietnam, 4.3% served in 12 years. Since 2001, only 0.45% of our population has served in the Global War on Terror. These are unbelievable statistics.

Over time, fewer and fewer people have shouldered more and more of the burden and it is only getting worse. Our troops were sent to war in Iraq by a Congress consisting of 10% veterans with only one person having a child in the military. Taxes did not increase to pay for the war. War bonds were not sold. Gas was not regulated. In fact, the average citizen was asked to sacrifice nothing, and has sacrificed nothing unless they have chosen to out of the goodness of their hearts.

The only people who have sacrificed are the veterans and their families. The volunteers. The people who swore an oath to defend this nation. You.

You stand there, deployment after deployment and fight on. You’ve lost relationships, spent years of your lives in extreme conditions, years apart from kids you’ll never get back, and beaten your body in a way that even professional athletes don’t understand. And you come home to a nation that doesn’t understand. They don’t understand suffering. They don’t understand sacrifice. They don’t understand that bad people exist. They look at you like you’re a machine – like something is wrong with you. You are the misguided one – not them. When you get out, you sit in the college classrooms with political science teachers that discount your opinions on Iraq and Afghanistan because YOU WERE THERE and can’t understand the “macro” issues they gathered from books with your bias. You watch TV shows where every vet has PTSD and the violent strain at that. Your Congress is debating your benefits, your retirement, and your pay, while they ask you to do more.

But the amazing thing about you is that you all know this. You know your country will never pay back what you’ve given up. You know that the populace at large will never truly understand or appreciate what you have done for them. Hell, you know that in some circles, you will be thought as less than normal for having worn the uniform. But you do it anyway. You do what the greatest men and women of this country have done since 1775 – YOU SERVED. Just that decision alone makes you part of an elite group.

Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few.

You are the 0.45%.

RYOC – A Work in Progress

In little more than two weeks, RYOC has moved from a concept into practice.

It began with an idea of how citizens can collaborate on current events and issues, bills in the House and Senate, executive orders, court decisions and treaties.  It is now a series of blogs on which people can comment, not only at the end of the blog (ok, but boring), but also in the interactive, collaboratively-rich environment of a message forum.  You’re not limited to blog comments.  You can start your own threads on the message forum, in addition to responding to threads created by others.

That’s where we are now.

The vision for RYOC’s future is a blog space for everyone, thereby duplicating my own efforts, but from your own perspective.

RYOC’s strength is inherent in its structure.  Before I created RYOC, I examined other political message forums, discovering what works, and why, as well as what doesn’t work.  The research and design phases alone took four months, as I wanted to be certain that RYOC was a cut of above the rest, even out of the starting gates.

I believe I succeeded.

No message forum is greater than its users, though, and that’s where you come in.  I invite you to join us in providing rich, insightful content!  The more you post, the more others will post, until everyone’s posting about everything.  That’s the measure of a healthy online community.  🙂

If you have any suggestions for improvement, I welcome your input here, on RYOC Forums!

Dear DHS: I AM NOT A TERRORIST

The title is in response to this article, which says the DHS is re-targeting “Conservative Americans” as “the new terrorists.”  In particular, this study find that if you’re “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of liberty,” then you’re an “extreme right-wing terrorist.”

Who the hell ARE these people?  Good grief!  They’re so out of touch with reality it’s no longer funny!  I dare say whoever’s coming up with this B.S. are themselves the true terrorists, having infiltrated the DHS in order to clandestinely undermine our nation from the inside out.  That’s not conspiracy theory.  That’s just fact.  The CIA, the KGB, Hitler’s Gestapo and SS…  Some agencies have behaved themselves far better than others.  No one can deny, however, their mission:  To infiltrate and undermine enemy governments.

That’s what’s happening to us.  I think I may know why, and I’ll get to that in a moment.  In the meantime:

– I served my country honorably for more than 20 years as a well-decorated officer in the United States Air Force.

– I took the week-long, Level II Anti-Terrorist/Force Protection training while stationed at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada. I did so voluntarily, post-9/11, because I was determined to do everything I could to protect the fellow members of my squadron from potential threats.

– I’ve gladly served in one of the two major terrorist theaters of operation in the last eleven years, fighting terrorists. While my job duties didn’t involve engaging them directly, I’ve certainly dodged their bullets, while supplying beans and bullets for the troops who do.  More than a few of the bullets I dodged were too close for comfort, impacting our aircraft as we flew in and out of the many airfields in Iraq.

– I’ve carried thousands of troops to the front line, and I’ve returned a few who made the ultimate sacrifice to their loved ones.  Doing so was my honor, not that they fell, but that we could bring them home.

AND YET!!!….

“A recent study, funded by DHS, characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.”

It goes on to say, “it does take time to focus on Americans who hold beliefs shared by both conservatives and libertarians and calls them radical extremists.”

So, this study, funded by the DHS, labels me as a terrorist, an “extreme right-wing terrorist” at that, simply because I’m reverent of liberty?

Oh, Holy Day!  Great God in Heaven!  According to this study, Thomas Jefferson was a terrorist! Alexander Hamilton was a terrorist? George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan — All terrorists!  Aghhh!  Run for the hills!!!

Seriously? If the DHS supports this crap, they’ve got massive international egg on their face. This is beyond absurd. It’s unbelievably ridiculous, the product of too many bean-counters spending too much time in their cubicles without benefit of actually having fought for our country in the military service.

It’s high time we make some much-needed changes here in America. I believe we need to follow Israel’s outstanding example, and require everyone who graduates high school, regardless of wealth, to serve two years in the military. They will be paid and receive three square meals a day.

But there are some stipulations to go along with this provision.  Those who have not served, regardless of the reason, ranging from medical to conscientious objector, and certainly not Daddy’s Wealth, will never be able to hold public office.

Ever.

Oh, I think we should make some home-town allowances, such as for mayors, police chiefs, city councilmen, sheriffs, etc. But state governor? Nope. Congressmen? Nope. President? Nope. Federal Judges? Nope. Supreme Court Justice? Nope.

You might ask “why?”  Simple:  Too many of our politicians who’ve never been there, done that, are irrefutably clueless when it comes the way the real world works.  I’ve visited more than thirty countries, have lived in seven of them more than a month, and four of them for more than a year, “on the economy,” no less.

The answer’s simple: Whoever’s at the DHS who came up with the ridiculous idea of funding this idiotic study is totally out of touch with reality, with society, and with the men and women of America, what we’re about, and why we do what we do.

In my experience, men and women of the military are by and large one of the last great melting pots of human existence. They’re one of the last bastions of reality on our increasingly over-html’d planet. One’s warped misconceptions and misconceived notions rapidly disappear when you’re brought into close, hard-working contact with so many others from all walks of society. You learn the real meaning of tolerance, as well as how to get along well with others, play nice, and, on occasion, kick ass, and no, I’m not talking about beating up on one’s brother. I’m talking about pounding the enemy.

Unfortunately, this study encourages the DHS to go forth with beating up our own brothers.

That’s messed up, big time.  As we used to say in the military, “It doesn’t pass the sanity test.” Then again, that “test” was born of at least several years of cross/multi-cultural military experience, something sadly lacking in certain government agencies these days. Given the nature of the study, the very fact that it was approved indicates to me that those who approved it either have no such experience, or that their experience was horribly warped.

If you’ve enjoyed this honest, heart-felt response to the ridiculous idea that those of us who’ve fought for and honor our liberty should be labeled “terrorists” by the same government who cut our orders, please do me a favor:  Please spread the word. Please SHARE this, and not only with your Facebook friends, but with your other friends and family, via e-mail and even snail mail, if you have to.  I’m sure this will touch a nerve with more of them than you might imagine. But don’t stop there – PLEASE share this with Congress, an agency whom I think is being populated by too many of the “give me” crowd and who hasn’t heard from YOU, the honest-to-God American Voter, in quite a while. Write them! Don’t be afraid of being labeled – that’s what our enemy wants you to fear.  That’s why they’re doing what they’re doing.

Instead, remember this:  If we’re all labeled, I’ve got your back, and you have mine. If you don’t speak up, no one will have either of our backs, so yes, the fight for freedom has come to our door, and it’s our time.

May God bless you and keep you! May He order your thoughts, desires, and passions, and may He bless our nation and our people through and through. I pray for common sense, for rational thought, and for lawful order and justice throughout our society, provided, of course, those laws and that justice are firmly compliant with our Constitution and only those laws which properly derive their authority from the “law of the land,” the founding document of our nation, the U.S. Constitution.  It is upon that foundation alone, and all laws properly deriving their authority therefrom, which I stand.

Red Tails, Part Deux – A Slight Against the Tuskegee Airmen

Laurence Fishburne played the part of Hannibal Lee in The Tuskegee Airmen with aplomb.  In my opinion, he and his co-actors did their level best to accurately portray the rise of the African American Airmen, and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

Enter George Lucas’ attempt to resurrect his studio efforts with a rewrite of history in “Red Tails.”

I’m sorry, but the first three minutes simply don’t ring true.  I’ve flown with outstanding airmen of all races, creeds, and gender.  We referred to ourselves by our crew positions, not our “call signs,” and certainly not by our race, creed, or belief.  I thoroughly enjoyed The Tuskegee Airmen, and based upon my limited knowledge of the time, believed it to be a fairly accurate portrayal.

The next ten minutes didn’t ring true, and neither did the rest of the movie.  Put simply, it’s sensationalistic movie-making at it’s best.  While the graphics might be flashier than those found in The Tuskegee Airmen, the movie with Lawrence Fishburne painted a far more accurate picture of what our brothers in arms went through back then.  Red Tails wasn’t just rough.  It was ridiculous.

I think folks who try to over-sensationalize whatever the “topic of the day” might be wind up undermining the better interests of the American people at large.  Misinformation is always a disservice.  I think George Lucas is reaching for new ground, and can’t quite figure out how to get there.  Reinventing world history via over-sensationalistic cinema-drama isn’t the right approach.  It just doesn’t ring true with any of us who’ve been there, or who’ve studied it, or who’ve had parents, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, grandmothers, or anyone else we know of whose been there.

Bottom line, one way or another, we’ve all been there.  This was a snow white job, trying to make things seem something more than they ought.  On top of it all, the graphics were freshman, at best.  We could see 1980’s quality graphics throughout the movie, so definitely not a step up.

Red Tails needs to turn tails between their legs.  If you want a far more authentic flick of these outstanding airmen during WWII, catch The Tuskegee Airmen.  Well worth a look!
