Oath Keepers Places Pro-Snowden Sign at White House Stop on D.C. Metro, Featuring Obama as “Big Brother.”

Oath Keepers has placed a large sign featuring President Obama as “Big Brother” at the Washington D.C. Metro stop closest to the White House, praising Edward Snowden for exposing the NSA spying on Americans and urging White House employees to follow Snowden’s example by becoming whistle-blowers.


Last month Oath Keepers placed a similar sign at the Pentagon Station stop on the Washington Metro subway.  That sign, done in the style of the theater scene from George Orwell’s 1984, featured Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, as ‘Big Brother” but now the graphic has been upgraded to feature Obama as Big Brother since he remains unrepentant even after Snowden’s embarrassing exposure of a snooping program the Administration denied ever existed.  And besides, Obama, as “Commander-in-Chief’ and as the Chief Executive, is clearly the biggest “Big Brother” of them all and is responsible for what the executive branch he leads is doing.

Nonetheless, you can bet there will be cries of “racist!” from the radical left because we dare to criticize their anointed god, despite the fact that we first featured Clapper – about as white a guy as you can imagine – as Big Brother, and despite the fact that Obama is the President, after-all (exactly who should we criticize if not him, for the policies of his Administration?).


The sign makes it clear that by exposing the NSA spying on Americans, Snowden honored his oath, and White House employees should follow his example by exposing other crimes against the Constitution.   We do  want to make it clear that, as we have stated previously, we are not defending or praising Snowden’s disclosure of U.S. intelligence operations against other countries.  We ARE defending and praising his exposure of unconstitutional U.S. intelligence operations against the American people.  When the Federal Government violates the Supreme Law of the Land and treats the American people like a foreign enemy, exposing that crime is the right thing to do.  And when that government is run by the very criminals who gave the orders to treat Americans like a foreign enemy, the “normal” channels for whistle-blowers are closed and all that is left is to blow the whistle to the real bosses – the American people themselves.  Which is exactly what Snowden did.

Below are some LIVE photos from the DC Metro station near the White House:

And the same goes for the Fast and Furious running of guns to the Mexican drug cartels,or for the truth of what happened at Benghazi, and for exposing the clear and imminent DHS preparation for a domestic war against freedom loving Americans, etc. – when the criminals are in charge of the government, the only recourse is to blow the Whistle to We the People so we can put a stop to it.   Those in government have a duty to expose government crimes against the Constitution.

Additional signs will be revealed at other DC area stations, in September, which will be as close to the CIA, DHS, and other national security/intelligence agencies as we can get them.  They will continue our campaign to get those in the know, inside government, to fulfill their oaths by simply exposing the crimes against the Constitution  that we know are going on.

This is part of a broader effort to place billboards at strategic locations throughout the United States.  We already have billboard outside of military bases at Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Base; Fort Benning, Georgia; Fort Hood, Texas; Fort Stewart, Georgia; and Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia.  You can see all of those billboards, and help us in this effort, by going to

Next up will be billboards at the Marine Corps bases at Camp Lejeune and Camp Pendleton, and at Army bases at Ft. Bragg, NC and Ft. Lewis, WA, as well as outside of the CIA headquarters in VA, and as close to NSA and DHS headquarters as we can get them.

As long as you keep supporting this effort, we will keep putting up billboards till we have them outside of every major military base in America and outside of every major intelligence and national security facility in America.  And along with the billboards, we will be handing out pocket Constitutions and issue pamphlets to active duty on the way into the military bases.  In fact, our chapter at Ft. Hood, Texas has already handed out over 3,000 pocket Constitutions to active duty soldiers there at Ft. Hood.  Way to go, Texas!

It is difficult to imagine a more direct and effective way to change the future course of history in this nation than to directly reach, teach, and inspire our active duty military to honor their oaths, and to encourage more whistle-blowers to expose the ongoing crimes against our Constitution.  That is an effective focus of effort.   We encourage you to help us, including by volunteering to take part in boots-on-the ground outreach efforts to pass out educational materials directly to the troops outside of the main gates of military bases.  Just email us with “Boots on Ground Volunteer” in the headlines, and let us know what state you live in, what base you want to visit and outreach to, and we WILL get you the materials you need to get it done.   Together, we will change history for the better and turn the tide.  Stay tuned for more details on that direct outreach effort.

For the Republic!

Founder and President of Oath Keepers

    Placing these billboards in strategic places is pure genius! And our country will receive many dividends from this investment.

    I applaud this “Big Brother” billboard and think a billboard should be created that has ALL of the pictures/names of those Congressmen/women who voted “NO” on the Justin Amash Amendment to HR#2397 (Defense Appropriations Bill) which would have “precluded the use of certain call records except when named individuals are subject to an investigation and court order” – in other words: it would have restricted the NSA of ongoing dragnet collection and storage of the personal records of innocent Americans as us. I am ashamed to admit that this “redcoat” list also includes my California Congressman Buck McKeon, who as the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee gets BIG bucks from defense contractors during campaign seasons (which is constant). Maybe that’s just a coincidence – or maybe not! And why limit these billboards to military bases only?

    I love the billboards, but…

    “When the Federal Government violates the Supreme Law of the Land and treats the American people like a foreign enemy, exposing that crime is the right thing to do.”

    It is true that it is important that “We the people” know about all criminal actions committed by the fed government, the UN (used to be US) military, and all state governments. The problem is that there is no rush to prosecute those criminals for what has Already been exposed. Exposing the crime is NOT enough, prosecuting those criminals is the next REASONABLE step.

    So tell me, when does “SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” kick in? When are those that are already in law, law enforcement, etc going to start making their cases, and file them so that we can see PROSECUTIONS of the government and military criminals?

    Ron Jr. Says:

    Cal I’ve been asking that question to myself frequently. I also love the billboards. They have been exposed enough! “We the people” are in need of some kind of action by our representatives if there are any of them willing to put their behinds on the line. Beyond that I don’t know who it would be!

    Big Al Says:

    @Ron Jr.- I’m afraid that we are the ones that need to be able and willing to put our derriere’s on the line, as the worthless lot have sold their souls for a place at the table.

    Cal Says:

    @Big Al, since criminal charges are made by the law enforcement, prosecutiers, etc – that is the problem. Getting someone in a position who can legally make the charges.

    What that means is that in the USA we have not had ONE (1) person who operates within the legal framework who has/would press charges, not even Sheriff Arpaio who has actual PROOF of ID theft.

    Then we have Murder in the First since NO president or anyone else seving within the three branches of the fed gov was given “assassination” powers.

    Then there is treason. The constitutional definition of treason does not require that anyone be killed, but that they can be killed.

    Treason is generally defined as “betrayal of country: a violation of the allegiance owed by somebody to his or her own country, e.g. by aiding an enemy.”

    High treason is defined as “treason perpetrated by somebody against his or her own country.”

    Another apt definition of treason is “any attempt to overthrow the government or impair the well-being of a state to which one owes allegiance; the crime of giving aid or comfort to the enemies of one’s government.”

    Obama and his administration most of it, Dempsey, Panetta, some of the military brass fall into that category.

    Then there is this: 28 C.F.R. Section 0.85:
    “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”, with “Domestic terrorism is the unlawful use, or threatened use, of force or violence by a group or individual based and operating entirely within the United States or Puerto Rico without foreign direction committed against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

    Obama, his administration, the FBI, CIA, Secret Service, DHS, TSA, IRS, a lot of the Military “Brass” such as Dempsey, Panetta – was Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from 2009 to 2011 and Secretary of Defense – all fall under this category, domestic terrorists. (So did Bush 1, Clinton(s), Bush 2 and there adminstrations)

    5 U.S.C. 3331: “An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services shall take the following oath: ‘I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.’”

    5 U.S.C. 3333: “…an individual who accepts office or employment in the Government of the United states…shall execute an affidavit within 60 days after accepting the office or employment that his acceptance and holding of the office or employment does not or will not violate section 7311 of this title. The affidavit is prima facie evidence that the acceptance and holding of office or employment by the affiant does not or will not violate section 7311 of this title.”

    5 U.S.C. 7311 (1): “An individual may not accept or hold a position in the Government of the United States of the government of the District of Columbia if he (1) advocates the overthrow of our constitutional form of government…” 
    Advocate: To plead in favor of: defend by argument before a tribunal or the public : support or recommend publicly. Webster’s Third New International Dictionary
    Advocate: To speak in favor of or defend by argument. To support, vindicate, or recommend publicly. Black’s Law Dictionary 
    Federal criminal law is explicit and direct regarding a violation of oath of office by federal officials which includes all members of Congress. The law requires the removal of the office holder as well a prison term or fine for the offender. 

    18 U.S.C. 1918: “Whoever violates the provisions of section 7311 of title 5 that an individual may not accept or hold a position in the Government of the United States or the government of the District of Columbia if he (1) advocates the overthrow of our constitutional form of government [and] shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year and a day or both.” 

    Executive Order 10450: In order to instruct investigating federal officials such as the FBI as to what is a violation of the oath of office under 5 U.S.C. 3331 and 5 U.S.C. 7311, Executive Order 10450 was issued to serve as a guideline for determining what actions constituted a criminal violation of the oath of office by federal officials. The order affirms the law of 5 U.S.C. 7311 that is a criminal violation under 18 U.S.C. 1918 for a member of the government, which includes members of Congress, to “advocate the overthrow of our constitutional form of government.”

    Executive Order 10450 states (in part): “Whereas the interest of the national security require that all persons privileged to be employed in…the Government shall be reliable, trustworthy, of good conduct and character, and of complete and unswerving loyalty to the United States… it is hereby ordered as follows:
    (a) The investigations conducted pursuant to this order shall be designed to develop information as to whether the employment or retention in employment…of the person being investigated is clearly consistent with the interests of the national security. Such information shall relate, but shall not be limited, to the following:
    (4) Advocacy of use of force or violence to overthrow the government of the United States, or of the alteration of the form of the government of the United States by unconstitutional means.”

    Title 18 US code section 2381 Treason: Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

    18 USC § 2382 – Misprision of treason: Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.

    18 USC § 2383 – Rebellion or insurrection: Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. (That would be “change” and using propaganda, lies, misinformation, and a corporate media cartel).

    18 USC § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy: If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
    Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof… assassination of any officer of any such government; or
    Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or
    Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof…

    There are many more, but the point is, why have the laws to stop this stuff when those within the positions to use those laws refuse to do so.

    Plus remember that the ONLY authority the judges have come from the US Constitution (state constitution when it also applies) and they ONLY have that authority while using “good behaviour” – following their constitutionally assigned duties and keeping their oaths.

    Snowden is no hero. He peddled his info to a foreign government that is our enemy. In fact he peddled it to two enemy governments. No hero who loved his country would ever do that. Oath Keepers has taken the wrong side on this one. Even today he continues to disclose secrets to our enemies.

    I intensely dislike and distrust the NSA but this is not the way to accomplish what you want.
