Crying Wolf on Terrorism.

This week the media and authorities declared a heightened alert for a possible terror attack over the holiday weekend. Is it a matter of “they only have to be right once, and we have to be right every time?” Or is it a form of control? Revolution and Beer

The Letter of Transmittal of the U.S. Constitution

LETTER OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL CONVENTION, TO THE PRESIDENT OF CONGRESS, TRANSMITTING THE CONSTITUTION
In Convention September 17, 1787

Sir,

We have now the honor to submit to the consideration of the United States in Congress assembled, that Constitution which has appeared to us the most advisable.
The friends of our country have long seen and desired, that the power of making war, peace, and treaties, that of levying money and regulating commerce, and the correspondent executive and judicial authorities should be fully and effectually vested in the general government of the Union: But the impropriety of delegating such extensive trust to one body of men is evident — Hence results the necessity of a different organization.

It is obviously impractical in the federal government of these states, to secure all rights of independent sovereignty to each, and yet provide for the interest and safety of all: Individuals entering into society, must give up a share of liberty to preserve the rest. The magnitude of the sacrifice must depend as well on situation and circumstances, as on the object to be obtained. It is at all times difficult to draw with precision the line between those rights which must be surrendered, and those which may be reserved; and on the present occasion this difficulty was encreased by a difference among the several states as to their situation, extent, habits, and particular interests.

In all our deliberations on this subject we kept steadily in our view, that which appears to us the greatest interest of every true American, the consolidation of our Union, in which is involved our prosperity, felicity, safety, perhaps our national existence. This important consideration, seriously and deeply impressed on our minds, led each state in the Convention to be less rigid on points of inferior magnitude, than might have been otherwise expected; and thus the Constitution, which we now present, is the result of a spirit of amity, and of that mutual deference and concession which the peculiarity of our political situation rendered indispensable.

That it will meet the full and entire approbation of every state is not perhaps to be expected; but each will doubtless consider that had her interest been alone consulted, the consequences might have been particularly disagreeable or injurious to others; that it is liable to as few exceptions as could reasonably have been expected, we hope and believe; that it may promote the lasting welfare of that country so dear to us all, and secure her freedom and happiness, is our most ardent wish.

With great respect, We have the honor to be, Sir,
Your Excellency’s most obedient and humble servants,
George Washington, President
By unanimous Order of the Convention.

His Excellency the President of Congress

Damn Straight! Education is a Right! Time for a constitutional amendment to secure that fundamental freedom

It is a fundamental right, particularly when the difference between a life of despair, poverty and hardship relies upon one’s access to education. And please, friends on the Right, don’t confuse motivation with access as you regularly do. If someone has the motivation to pursue education and learning, those are the people who the nation needs in its public and private institutions. These are the architects of America’s dreams. Access, reasonable access to education, like housing IS a fundamental human right, just like access to proper healthcare, clean water and healthy food.grunge_flag_of_usa-t2

Absolute needs such as not having access to housing, clean water and a decent diet are essential to true freedom. Righties, stop listening to the paid propagandists for the oligarchs who are securing prime control and access of essentials to life for themselves and to maintain power over the rest of us. How much time and energy is truly lost when working folks and families are consumed about essentials for basic human existence-the basis for assigning rights-and what might they accomplish? When you are poor, not being weighted under the spectre of a healthcare calamity is extraordinarily liberating.

Did the founding fathers, here on the eve of our nation’s birthday not Declare certain “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 Declaration was the founding element amid a war of independence and the establishment of a nation unified 11 long and bloody years later under the United States Constitution. Life and Liberty are empty terms without the supposition that opportunity are imbued and inseparable characteristics of both. Happiness is the consequence of satisfaction of the reasonable security for both Life and Liberty. They are all, together, one in the same; part and parcel to one another. Without one none of the others can or should stand.

It is undeniable that education was and is considered fundamental to the opportunity and pursuit of true Liberty. The decision to end that mandate at high school is simply arbitrary, not something that is set by biology or the physical laws of the universe, nor even the ideological assumptions of economics. It is the decisions of men, not gods. Schools and access to education are the seeds of our nation’s legacy, not the training camps for the nation’s wealthy business owners. Are we building citizens or programming drones? Are we building a future or maintaining the issue that pursue us in the present?

The answer to that is fundamental to the future and security and continuance of our nation. It should indict immediately the un-democratic, anti-liberty motivations of those who would demean that notion!

Recently a friend from Michigan who is undertaking a run for the senate posed a question regarding the crisis growing with regards to the affordability . Chris Wahmhoff has, for a number of years, been a selfless and stalwart environmental and community activist in Michigan, standing with Occupy and then the Michigan Coalition against Tar Sands as a champion for the people. I offered this idea on one way of maintaining this basic right, securing the posterity of our nation and refocusing the promise and intent the constitution to where it begins-the People:

“I am for a constitutional amendment that mandates college in public 4 year institutions can never exceed what a full-time minimum wage worker brings home in one year, and that Masters and PhDs can never exceed 30% and 40% above that basic cost, respectively, that same amount. Private institutions may charge more but will receive no public funds or subsidies if they exceed 45% above what it costs to attend a public institution. If colleges want or need to charge more the nation will be required to raise the minimum wage to maintain pace.”

Simple, doable, equitable and maintains a bracket insulating the nation from institutionalized poverty. More than that, it becomes a banner that reminds us all that the American Dream is what we build together and maintain for one another. Ask yourself, what the martyrs of this nation’s wars, its independence and struggle for civil rights sacrifice and accomplish? What did they sacrifice for?

Happy birthday, America…if you will.

Fellow Patriots …errr …Anarcho-WHAT?!

Adam Kokesh is a former marine, and an Iraq war veteran, who fought in the battle of Fellujah, in 2004. Since serving, he’s moved on to engage in several campaigns and stunts that have landed him on the edge of losing his honorable discharge classification from the military. In 2007, along with two other reservists, he participated in an anti-war march in his marine fatigues. This drew a harsh dressing-down from higher ups in the Corps. However it also lead to Kokesh getting a strong declaration of support from Gary Kurpius, the national commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars, who issued a very stern critique of the at the Marine Corps for downgrading the discharge status of Adam and his two colleagues:

“I may disagree with the message . . . but I and my organization will always defend their right to say it.”

“VFW to Corps: Don’t stifle freedom of speech.”

Open Carry March on Washington, and “The Final American Revolution”

In late April of this year, Adam called for a spectacle that he deemed the Open Carry March on Washington. The purpose: to “put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny.

“The time to sit idly by has passed. To remain neutral is to be complicit, just doing your job is not an excuse, and the line in the sand has been drawn between the people, and the criminals in Washington, D.C. While some timid souls will say that it is too early, that we can solve this problem through democratic means provided by government, that current levels of taxation are reasonable for the services provided, and that the crimes of this government are merely a tolerable nuisance, it may already be too late.”

This all seemed a little hard to believe. He was telling folks to expect thousands. He even had Alex Jones call the Info Wars bullhorn for him. Is this really the first shot of a new “American Revolution?” They’ve been threatening to do this for a loooong time. As of yesterday, July 3rd, the Facebook page for the event had over 6,000 people declaring their plans to support and attend the Washington, DC march.

So Turck decides to go:

On May 11th, WC Turck stated:

“This is not about gun banning, a fear of guns or an infringement on the Second Amendment, which very clearly describes a “well regulated militia.” The “regulated” word is critical to mature, rational and moral discussions about the place and importance of guns in contemporary American civil society. That discussion is important in stemming the bloodshed on America’s streets, but also important to people who wish to protect their families. However, the NRA and “gun pornographers,” as Turck describes them, have chosen to raise the rhetoric to a level of hysteria and paranoia. Rather than treating weapons as a tool, the NRA has promulgated them to a near religious fervor, and is forcing gun proliferation upon Americans everywhere in civil society.”

But then things got tricky:

“KOKESH: Please don’t come to Washington, D.C., this now an appeal to the state level and I think it’s much more appropriate given the gravity of the situation. We shouldn’t be begging the federal government to change, we shouldn’t be hoping that they respect our rights because it’s clear that they don’t.”

“And I can’t even, as the organizer of this event, be able to say that I’m going to be there. We can’t have this depend on any one person or even any central event.”

WE SPRUNG FOR A PLANE TICKET!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?

Flying these days just never pays-off.

So Who Made It?

Well, we’ve got a damn fine story, but here’s a sneak peak for now:

Sun-burnt to hell, and looking like a raccoon, Turck set out on a mile and a half walk through the capitol of “the freest country in the world.” However, this morning it came off more like a military lock-down after a forced evacuation. It hit well over 90 degrees there today, and it wasn’t like he was just able to stroll down a sidewalk. Arriving at the planned location of the Washington D.C. (leg?) march at around 8:30 am.

He walked around the area for about an hour, spoke with some cops, and filmed some commentary. Around 9:30 or so, he returned to the Big stone bridge where it was meant to kick-off from. Then, guys began to trickle over the bridge a couple at a time to amass a crowd of… 5.

They greeted each other, and introduced themselves. Turck asked: “Are you guys here for the march?” “Yeah,” they replied. Then one of them asked “What are you here for?” To which Turck honestly replied: “I’m here in opposition to it.” They got into some banter on issues, arguing a bit before the conversation turned to the obvious question: “WTF?!?!”

Turck proposed, in honor of what Adam started, and what these guys believe in and endured to get there; that they walk across the bridge together as planned. In addition, after the “march,” he would record their views and post them unedited, and without editorial from us, on our page. They all decided to go for it. After the interviews, they walked and continued the conversation with him almost all the way back to the hotel.

TO BE CONTINUED…
