To the Governor of Washington: A List of Grievances by

We the People

 

by Kit Lange | Feb 6, 2015

One of the most important rights as citizens in a Constitutional Republic is the right to call upon the government for redress of grievances. Unfortunately, We the People are all too familiar with so-called lawmakers who not only ignore the will of the people, but actively work against it. We see this in Washington State as well as other states throughout the country, as legislators continuously pass law after law that directly infringes upon those rights that are outlined as being off-limits to government control.

Regardless of whether our elected officials wish to acknowledge it or not, We the People retain this right to redress, and we present this list of grievances to the Governor of the State of Washington, and demand that they be rectified. As the Washington State Constitution makes clear, all political power resides with the people. As such, We the People demand that our rights be secured and maintained, as the Constitution calls for—not infringed upon and denied.

While these grievances are not solely done at the state level, if the state allows the infringement of rights by the federal government, then the state is also guilty of the same violation.

At the writing of the Declaration of Independence, the founders outlined a list of grievances against King George III. They, too, demanded redress, and were met with the same contempt that many legislators show the people today. We the People, as the holders of political power in the State of Washington and the United States of America, demand that we be heard, and that the following infringements cease immediately:

1. Militarizing police and SWAT Teams

2. Stockpiling of Ammunition while Limiting the Rights of Citizens to Purchase Ammunition

3. Distributing License Plate Readers meant to track the movement of law-abiding citizens.

4. Tracking Cell-Phones with Stingray Devices

5. Turning Cell-Phones into Roving Listening Devices

6. Creating Longitudinal Databases to Track Citizens from Birth to Death

8. Carrying Out Military Drills and Lockdowns in American Cities

9. Tracking People via Facial Recognition

10. Using the TSA to Create Databases of “Suspect Citizens”

11. Carrying out Soft Target Checkpoints

12. Directing Government Workers to Spy on Americans

13. Suspending Habeas Corpus in a Time of Peace with NDAA

14. Using Drones to Spy on Citizens and Map Their Property

15. Directing Government Workers to Spy on Americans and Create Linkage Charts of Patriotic Americans

16. Conducting Widespread Spying Networks Using Fusion Centers and Listing Americans as “Terrorists” Without Trial

17. Carrying Out Constitution-Free Border Control Searches

18. Funding City-Wide Surveillance Cameras

19. The State governor demanding that the Washington State Patrol violate their own oath to the Constitution by authorizing them to suppress the people’s right to the First and Second Amendments through threats of arrest and force.

20. The State Legislature unlawfully and deceitfully reclassifying firearms as “props”.

21. The state legislature arbitrarily denying the right of a group of adults, based on their age, from viewing their government proceedings if they choose to exercise their Second Amendment right.

22. The state legislature continuing to allow the federal government to illegally lay claim to and hold lands belonging to the people of the state of Washington.

23. Infringement upon the unalienable basic right to self-defense of the people through unjust laws that violate not only the federal and state Constitution but natural law.

24. Taxation without representation, through unlawful and unnecessary taxes and fees charged for the exercise of rights, and the repeated refusal of the state legislature to hear and act in accordance with the will of the people and the Constitution that binds their power.

25. The passing of rules in secret by the State House, State Senate, Speaker pro tempore, and the Lieutenant Governor, that directly violate the rules of the people.

26. The abuse of power by elected officials such as (but not limited to) Rep. Laurie Jinkins and Rep. Jim Moeller, who have used their positions to exert control over the people and deny them their rights.

27. The allowance of judges to legislate from the bench that a police officer’s ignorance of the law is grounds for the violation of the People’s rights.

Regardless of inconvenience, the legislature and the Governor cannot violate the rights of the People, and must adhere to their oath. It is imperative that the state government understand that it must operate within the limits of the state and the federal Constitution, and as such, must secure and maintain the rights of the people without question and without infringement. Instead, the legislature has made its own rules and used the force of the state to enforce those rules, which is in and of itself a threat of violence against the People. This is unacceptable.

We seek no violence and do not condone the use of force outside of the blueprint outlined by the Founders. We do, however, seek redress and remind the Governor of his own oath, found in RCW 43.01.020:

“I do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the state of Washington, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of Governor to the best of my ability.”

These continued infringements and assaults upon the rights of the people—or the refusal to stop those abuses by legislators and government officials—constitute a blatant and gross violation of that oath. We call upon the Governor of the State of Washington to cease infringement upon the People’s rights and uphold his solemn promise to uphold the Constitution of the United States and that of our state.

 

We will not comply. We stand.

Additional Resources For Getting Up To Speed On This Important Rally

At 10:00 a.m. at the State Capitol in Olympia, Washington, a coalition of Constitutionalists will engage in civil disobedience. This will be an open-carry rally. Three Washington State Representatives will be joined by Mike Vanderboegh, (Founder of the III% movement), in giving speeches to the rally. Media will be present. Oath Keepers who attend are encouraged to wear your Oath Keepers gear. This event is endorsed by our Founder, Stewart Rhodes. See Stewart Rhodes’ statement below. Oath Keepers will remain non-confrontational and will work with authorities to ensure that this event goes peacefully and powerfully toward empowering the People of Washington to nullify unlawful rules, edicts, and “laws” of the State and its legislature. We have the moral high ground here, and the statist anti-Constitutionists are fearful that our message of the Rule of Law will get out to the rest of the nation. Oath Keepers will display dignity and non-aggressive postures at all times. We here at National are proud of all who can show up in support of this important rally.

Stewart Rhodes’ endorsement for this event:

Endorsement from STEWART RHODES: Members of Oath Keepers, I fully support this rally and planned peaceful civil disobedience and I encourage you to attend if you can. However, I want to make it clear that each of you have multiple options here:

1. You can go and simply participate in the rally (and you can choose to do so armed or unarmed – personally, I would be armed, since it is an open carry rally, but that is an individual choice).

2. You can go and outreach to the police and encourage them to respect and protect the rights of the protesters. That is a vital task that we Oath Keepers are pretty good at, and we should be doing that.

3. And/or you can also go into the Gallery of the legislature with the others who intend on using civil disobedience against the new rule put in place by the Speaker of the Legislature, that bans the open carry of firearms in the Gallery for the first time in WA state history (and make sure they know this is only a rule by the speaker, not even a law). If you do choose to take part in the peaceful civil disobedience, go there willing to follow the instructions of the organizers of the event, and the leaders there, such as Rep. Matt Shea, Anthony Bosworth, and MIke Vanderboegh, and go there willing to be arrested, in case that is the outcome (that is what peaceful civil disobedience is all about, after all – it is defying some edict, while knowing you may be arrested for doing so, and being willing to go through that experience).

You can do any one of the above, or all of the above. Personally, if I was able to be there (I am handling a family emergency at the moment that keeps me from attending), I would do all three. I would participate in the open carry rally, I would outreach to the police there, and I would participate in the civil disobedience. Such civil disobedience is necessary in the fight to restore our Republic, and in our mission to defend the Constitution. But each person needs to make a decision for themselves about what they are willing to do at any such event. Not all are at the point of being ready to risk arrest while undertaking peaceful civil disobedience. And that is fine. I do encourage you to begin to exercise those civil disobedience “muscles” but that is an individual choice. I will point out, however, that civil disobedience is a much honored American tradition, starting with the Founding Generation which intentionally refused to comply with multiple edicts, statutes, and rules set by Parliament and King. They refused to comply and used peaceful civil disobedience for many years leading up to the outset of fighting. They held town hall meeting right under the nose of General Gage, in direct violation of an edict of Parliament that banned town hall meetings. They smuggled around egregious restrictions on where they could send their ships and cargo. They refused to pay unjust taxes, and they circumvented or openly defied multiple other statutes passed by Parliament, and multiple acts by the Royal Governors. Civil disobedience, nullification, and defiance were the life-blood of the cause of the Colonists in the years leading up to the outbreak of the actual American Revolution. Learn from their example, and get yourself ready to use the same tactics, which will nor only further the cause of liberty, but will help you to become stronger in your hearts and minds.

I have attended multiple open carry rallies, and I have participated in several acts of civil disobedience, and I can tell you from personal experience, that it is good for the soul. I encourage you to go if you can.

For the Republic,

Stewart Rhodes

      .
      January 26, 2015 at 10:59am


      THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to tax) but “to bind us in all cases whatsoever,” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.

      Whether the independence of the continent was declared too soon, or delayed too long, I will not now enter into as an argument; my own simple opinion is, that had it been eight months earlier, it would have been much better. We did not make a proper use of last winter, neither could we, while we were in a dependent state. However, the fault, if it were one, was all our own[1]; we have none to blame but ourselves. But no great deal is lost yet. All that Howe has been doing for this month past, is rather a ravage than a conquest, which the spirit of the Jerseys, a year ago, would have quickly repulsed, and which time and a little resolution will soon recover.

      I have as little superstition in me as any man living, but my secret opinion has ever been, and still is, that God Almighty will not give up a people to military destruction, or leave them unsupportedly to perish, who have so earnestly and so repeatedly sought to avoid the calamities of war, by every decent method which wisdom could invent. Neither have I so much of the infidel in me, as to suppose that He has relinquished the government of the world, and given us up to the care of devils; and as I do not, I cannot see on what grounds the king of Britain can look up to heaven for help against us: a common murderer, a highwayman, or a house-breaker, has as good a pretence as he.

      ‘Tis surprising to see how rapidly a panic will sometimes run through a country. All nations and ages have been subject to them. Britain has trembled like an ague at the report of a French fleet of flat-bottomed boats; and in the fourteenth [fifteenth] century the whole English army, after ravaging the kingdom of France, was driven back like men petrified with fear; and this brave exploit was performed by a few broken forces collected and headed by a woman, Joan of Arc. Would that heaven might inspire some Jersey maid to spirit up her countrymen, and save her fair fellow sufferers from ravage and ravishment! Yet panics, in some cases, have their uses; they produce as much good as hurt. Their duration is always short; the mind soon grows through them, and acquires a firmer habit than before. But their peculiar advantage is, that they are the touchstones of sincerity and hypocrisy, and bring things and men to light, which might otherwise have lain forever undiscovered. In fact, they have the same effect on secret traitors, which an imaginary apparition would have upon a private murderer. They sift out the hidden thoughts of man, and hold them up in public to the world. Many a disguised Tory has lately shown his head, that shall penitentially solemnize with curses the day on which Howe arrived upon the Delaware.

      As I was with the troops at Fort Lee, and marched with them to the edge of Pennsylvania, I am well acquainted with many circumstances, which those who live at a distance know but little or nothing of. Our situation there was exceedingly cramped, the place being a narrow neck of land between the North River and the Hackensack. Our force was inconsiderable, being not one-fourth so great as Howe could bring against us. We had no army at hand to have relieved the garrison, had we shut ourselves up and stood on our defence. Our ammunition, light artillery, and the best part of our stores, had been removed, on the apprehension that Howe would endeavor to penetrate the Jerseys, in which case Fort Lee could be of no use to us; for it must occur to every thinking man, whether in the army or not, that these kind of field forts are only for temporary purposes, and last in use no longer than the enemy directs his force against the particular object which such forts are raised to defend. Such was our situation and condition at Fort Lee on the morning of the 20th of November, when an officer arrived with information that the enemy with 200 boats had landed about seven miles above; Major General [Nathaniel] Green, who commanded the garrison, immediately ordered them under arms, and sent express to General Washington at the town of Hackensack, distant by the way of the ferry = six miles. Our first object was to secure the bridge over the Hackensack, which laid up the river between the enemy and us, about six miles from us, and three from them. General Washington arrived in about three-quarters of an hour, and marched at the head of the troops towards the bridge, which place I expected we should have a brush for; however, they did not choose to dispute it with us, and the greatest part of our troops went over the bridge, the rest over the ferry, except some which passed at a mill on a small creek, between the bridge and the ferry, and made their way through some marshy grounds up to the town of Hackensack, and there passed the river. We brought off as much baggage as the wagons could contain, the rest was lost. The simple object was to bring off the garrison, and march them on till they could be strengthened by the Jersey or Pennsylvania militia, so as to be enabled to make a stand. We staid four days at Newark, collected our out-posts with some of the Jersey militia, and marched out twice to meet the enemy, on being informed that they were advancing, though our numbers were greatly inferior to theirs. Howe, in my little opinion, committed a great error in generalship in not throwing a body of forces off from Staten Island through Amboy, by which means he might have seized all our stores at Brunswick, and intercepted our march into Pennsylvania; but if we believe the power of hell to be limited, we must likewise believe that their agents are under some providential control.

      I shall not now attempt to give all the particulars of our retreat to the Delaware; suffice it for the present to say, that both officers and men, though greatly harassed and fatigued, frequently without rest, covering, or provision, the inevitable consequences of a long retreat, bore it with a manly and martial spirit. All their wishes centred in one, which was, that the country would turn out and help them to drive the enemy back. Voltaire has remarked that King William never appeared to full advantage but in difficulties and in action; the same remark may be made on General Washington, for the character fits him. There is a natural firmness in some minds which cannot be unlocked by trifles, but which, when unlocked, discovers a cabinet of fortitude; and I reckon it among those kind of public blessings, which we do not immediately see, that God hath blessed him with uninterrupted health, and given him a mind that can even flourish upon care.

      I shall conclude this paper with some miscellaneous remarks on the state of our affairs; and shall begin with asking the following question, Why is it that the enemy have left the New England provinces, and made these middle ones the seat of war? The answer is easy: New England is not infested with Tories, and we are. I have been tender in raising the cry against these men, and used numberless arguments to show them their danger, but it will not do to sacrifice a world either to their folly or their baseness. The period is now arrived, in which either they or we must change our sentiments, or one or both must fall. And what is a Tory? Good God! what is he? I should not be afraid to go with a hundred Whigs against a thousand Tories, were they to attempt to get into arms. Every Tory is a coward; for servile, slavish, self-interested fear is the foundation of Toryism; and a man under such influence, though he may be cruel, never can be brave.

      But, before the line of irrecoverable separation be drawn between us, let us reason the matter together: Your conduct is an invitation to the enemy, yet not one in a thousand of you has heart enough to join him. Howe is as much deceived by you as the American cause is injured by you. He expects you will all take up arms, and flock to his standard, with muskets on your shoulders. Your opinions are of no use to him, unless you support him personally, for ’tis soldiers, and not Tories, that he wants.

      I once felt all that kind of anger, which a man ought to feel, against the mean principles that are held by the Tories: a noted one, who kept a tavern at Amboy, was standing at his door, with as pretty a child in his hand, about eight or nine years old, as I ever saw, and after speaking his mind as freely as he thought was prudent, finished with this unfatherly expression, “Well! give me peace in my day.” Not a man lives on the continent but fully believes that a separation must some time or other finally take place, and a generous parent should have said, “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace;” and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty. Not a place upon earth might be so happy as America. Her situation is remote from all the wrangling world, and she has nothing to do but to trade with them. A man can distinguish himself between temper and principle, and I am as confident, as I am that God governs the world, that America will never be happy till she gets clear of foreign dominion. Wars, without ceasing, will break out till that period arrives, and the continent must in the end be conqueror; for though the flame of liberty may sometimes cease to shine, the coal can never expire.

      America did not, nor does not want force; but she wanted a proper application of that force. Wisdom is not the purchase of a day, and it is no wonder that we should err at the first setting off. From an excess of tenderness, we were unwilling to raise an army, and trusted our cause to the temporary defence of a well-meaning militia. A summer’s experience has now taught us better; yet with those troops, while they were collected, we were able to set bounds to the progress of the enemy, and, thank God! they are again assembling. I always considered militia as the best troops in the world for a sudden exertion, but they will not do for a long campaign. Howe, it is probable, will make an attempt on this city [Philadelphia]; should he fail on this side the Delaware, he is ruined. If he succeeds, our cause is not ruined. He stakes all on his side against a part on ours; admitting he succeeds, the consequence will be, that armies from both ends of the continent will march to assist their suffering friends in the middle states; for he cannot go everywhere, it is impossible. I consider Howe as the greatest enemy the Tories have; he is bringing a war into their country, which, had it not been for him and partly for themselves, they had been clear of. Should he now be expelled, I wish with all the devotion of a Christian, that the names of Whig and Tory may never more be mentioned; but should the Tories give him encouragement to come, or assistance if he come, I as sincerely wish that our next year’s arms may expel them from the continent, and the Congress appropriate their possessions to the relief of those who have suffered in well-doing. A single successful battle next year will settle the whole. America could carry on a two years’ war by the confiscation of the property of disaffected persons, and be made happy by their expulsion. Say not that this is revenge, call it rather the soft resentment of a suffering people, who, having no object in view but the good of all, have staked their own all upon a seemingly doubtful event. Yet it is folly to argue against determined hardness; eloquence may strike the ear, and the language of sorrow draw forth the tear of compassion, but nothing can reach the heart that is steeled with prejudice.

      Quitting this class of men, I turn with the warm ardor of a friend to those who have nobly stood, and are yet determined to stand the matter out: I call not upon a few, but upon all: not on this state or that state, but on every state: up and help us; lay your shoulders to the wheel; better have too much force than too little, when so great an object is at stake. Let it be told to the future world, that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and to repulse it. Say not that thousands are gone, turn out your tens of thousands; throw not the burden of the day upon Providence, but “show your faith by your works,” that God may bless you. It matters not where you live, or what rank of life you hold, the evil or the blessing will reach you all. The far and the near, the home counties and the back, the rich and the poor, will suffer or rejoice alike. The heart that feels not now is dead; the blood of his children will curse his cowardice, who shrinks back at a time when a little might have saved the whole, and made them happy. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death. My own line of reasoning is to myself as straight and clear as a ray of light. Not all the treasures of the world, so far as I believe, could have induced me to support an offensive war, for I think it murder; but if a thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me, or those that are in it, and to “bind me in all cases whatsoever” to his absolute will, am I to suffer it? What signifies it to me, whether he who does it is a king or a common man; my countryman or not my countryman; whether it be done by an individual villain, or an army of them? If we reason to the root of things we shall find no difference; neither can any just cause be assigned why we should punish in the one case and pardon in the other. Let them call me rebel and welcome, I feel no concern from it; but I should suffer the misery of devils, were I to make a whore of my soul by swearing allegiance to one whose character is that of a sottish, stupid, stubborn, worthless, brutish man. I conceive likewise a horrid idea in receiving mercy from a being, who at the last day shall be shrieking to the rocks and mountains to cover him, and fleeing with terror from the orphan, the widow, and the slain of America.

      There are cases which cannot be overdone by language, and this is one. There are persons, too, who see not the full extent of the evil which threatens them; they solace themselves with hopes that the enemy, if he succeed, will be merciful. It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf, and we ought to guard equally against both. Howe’s first object is, partly by threats and partly by promises, to terrify or seduce the people to deliver up their arms and receive mercy. The ministry recommended the same plan to Gage, and this is what the tories call making their peace, “a peace which passeth all understanding” indeed! A peace which would be the immediate forerunner of a worse ruin than any we have yet thought of. Ye men of Pennsylvania, do reason upon these things! Were the back counties to give up their arms, they would fall an easy prey to the Indians, who are all armed: this perhaps is what some Tories would not be sorry for. Were the home counties to deliver up their arms, they would be exposed to the resentment of the back counties who would then have it in their power to chastise their defection at pleasure. And were any one state to give up its arms, that state must be garrisoned by all Howe’s army of Britons and Hessians to preserve it from the anger of the rest. Mutual fear is the principal link in the chain of mutual love, and woe be to that state that breaks the compact. Howe is mercifully inviting you to barbarous destruction, and men must be either rogues or fools that will not see it. I dwell not upon the vapors of imagination; I bring reason to your ears, and, in language as plain as A, B, C, hold up truth to your eyes.

      I thank God, that I fear not. I see no real cause for fear. I know our situation well, and can see the way out of it. While our army was collected, Howe dared not risk a battle; and it is no credit to him that he decamped from the White Plains, and waited a mean opportunity to ravage the defenceless Jerseys; but it is great credit to us, that, with a handful of men, we sustained an orderly retreat for near an hundred miles, brought off our ammunition, all our field pieces, the greatest part of our stores, and had four rivers to pass. None can say that our retreat was precipitate, for we were near three weeks in performing it, that the country might have time to come in. Twice we marched back to meet the enemy, and remained out till dark. The sign of fear was not seen in our camp, and had not some of the cowardly and disaffected inhabitants spread false alarms through the country, the Jerseys had never been ravaged. Once more we are again collected and collecting; our new army at both ends of the continent is recruiting fast, and we shall be able to open the next campaign with sixty thousand men, well armed and clothed. This is our situation, and who will may know it. By perseverance and fortitude we have the prospect of a glorious issue; by cowardice and submission, the sad choice of a variety of evils- a ravaged country- a depopulated city- habitations without safety, and slavery without hope- our homes turned into barracks and bawdy-houses for Hessians, and a future race to provide for, whose fathers we shall doubt of. Look on this picture and weep over it! and if there yet remains one thoughtless wretch who believes it not, let him suffer it unlamented.

  5. I moved to Washington State 14 years ago, specifically to purchase the historic, landmarked Skykomish Hotel in the beautiful Cascade mountain town of Skykomish. I had previously lived and worked in many states and thought I knew and understood what government corruption is all about

    Wow, what a terrible mistake that was, as I have spent my savings and retirement trying to fend off the Town of Skykomish, King County and Washington State from stealing my property.

    My spouse, a direct blood relation to the Washington family, knows her cousin is turning over in his grave at the cesspool Washington State, who’s seal bears his likeness, has become. Truly the devil’s playground.

  6. Stewart,

    I am in 100% agreement with the people of Washington state regarding the 3 areas of civil disobedience you listed in your endorsement. If I am arrested for these acts of civil disobedience, will it cause me to lose my CHL (Texas), and CCWs (Nevada and Utah)? I am an everyday carry guy.

    Thank you for what you are doing for this nation and our liberty.

    Rick

  7. 3 yrs ago if someone would have asked me about being concerned about my constitutional rights, I would have responded “I live in America, don’t have that problem”. well, how wrong I am. I get it now. served during Vietnam, I have been a law abiding citizens all my life and now I feel threatened by my own government. what is wrong with this picture. it now incumbent that ‘we the people’ step forward, be heard and be prepared to defend our constitution……

    [Editor’s Note: Welcome home, Brother. (I was there in 1966 & 1967) It is sad that the government we trusted has proven in our own lifetimes to be untrustworthy. Thank you for waking up to the sad reality that our national government has become so corrupted that it is now the Constitution’s biggest enemy. But that is what we’re faced with. Thank you for stepping up to fight this by supporting Oath Keepers. We are not alone, and now we “know”.

    Salute!
    Elias Alias, editor]

  8. I would also like to remind our governor that any law whether passed by state or federal legislatures or rules from any other source which are unconstitutional are invalid!

  9. Peaceful refusal to comply along with an open letter to the would be tyrants who usurp the public office of the people is the direction made example by the founding fathers. Your well written and thoughtful letter for redress of grievance is what they did for over 10 years before the only other resort for free men was thrust on them by the tyrants of their day.

    They did not want to make war on their fellow Englishman as we do not to make war on our fellow Americans. The high moral ground must be retained by the people and not yielded to the tyrants no matter how hard that they push us we must remain vigilant, prepared and steadfast in our convictions to remain free from tyranny. You are following the examples left to us by our founding fathers and others in the liberty movement should follow their example too.

    CPT, RTI and continued civil disobedience in a peaceful manner will prove to be instrumental in restoring the Republic but patience and dogged determination will have to prevail unless we are left no other choice.

  10. http://www.justice.gov/crt/about/crm/242fin.php Summary:
    Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.

    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim.

    The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.

  11. Try living in Hawaii, this is a communist playground, though communism is against the law in this country, it flourishes here. You can’t get a conceal carry unless you are one of the elite rulers of this sink hole. As we speak the government is pulling funds and personnel from the bases in this state leaving us as sitting ducks without the right to defend ourselves. I support these brave people in their mission to break the chains that bind us. There are many laws on the books located in the USC that are supposed to punish political animals when they break our laws, as seen here: “It was Truman who pushed the Federal Immigration and National Act of 1952 through Congress in the closing days of his administration. Under Section 8 USC 1324[a](1)(A)[iv][b](iii) any US citizen that knowingly assists an illegal alien, provides them with employment, food, water or shelter has committed a felony. City, county or State officials that declare their jurisdictions to be “Open Cities, Counties or States are subject to arrest; as are law enforcement agencies who chose not to enforce this law. Police officers who ignore officials who violate Section 8 USC 1324[a](1)(A)[iv][b](iii) are committing a Section 274 federal felony. Furthermore, according to Federal Immigration and National Act of 1952, if you live in a city, county or State that refuses to enforce the law for whatever reason, the officials making those rules are financially liable for any crime committed within their jurisdiction by an illegal alien.” In these set of laws are provisions for punishing political law breakers, but you have to have a citizen grand jury to recommend to indict, and you have to have a AG who will prosecute. We don’t have that, do we expect criminal AG’s to uphold the law? Can we force Eric Holder to do his job, or the Congress to arrest Eric Holder for being a Felon? Apparently not, God help us all, but there may be a way to get resolution, how about a class action suit, since our government is a Corporation, in all it’s forms after all at the end of the day. If no one man has legal standing, may we all stand together, or hang separately.

  12. Thanks Patriots for standing for my “Constitutional Rights”. God stands with you.

    Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence is the supreme law of America. Any additional law must abide and conform to these original laws. Passing a treasonous law is treason and passing a treasonous law based on previous treasonous law is treason. Those passing such law or defending such law are treasonous traitors to the United States and shall be arrested for such. States can not independently amend the “Constitution”. Only “We the people” of each State by majority vote and a majority vote by all States can amend the original founding documents.

    Bill of Rights – Amendment X
    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
    Any Congress, President, Supreme Court, or States government acting in contrary to the original law shall be held in contempt of the law of America and arrested. Shall the systems of law enforcement refuse to arrest those involved it becomes the right of the people to act in behalf of our founding documents and law enforcement shall either aid the people or stand down. This authority is granted them via their Second Amendment Law in the Bill of Rights which was specifically added should such treachery and treasonous exists.

    Bill of Rights – Amendment II
    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

  13. Outstanding Kit, you and all the brave people that were with you are setting the example. Even though the Statees locked the door to defuse the protest by keeping you out, your message rang loud and clear for all America to hear. Keep advancing toward this treachery that the tyrants in your statehouse are trying to make you and the people of Washington live under.

  14. I do not agree with all of what Kit referred to in her letter. As an Oath Keeper of Stevens County, WA I believe we are united in the basics, but the far out stuff is beyond me….so just remember she speaks for herself, and possibly her group, but not for all of us.
