Memorial Day – A Look Back

Fallen Warrior

Memorial Day has, once more, come and gone. What should be a day to remember the sacrifices of our Fallen Warriors, who gave their lives defending our Nation, has become an excuse for a three day holiday. It is sad, really, that too many Americans have no concept of what those brave, Fallen Warriors sacrificed for them. Many do understand, but far too many haven’t a clue.  Those Fallen Warriors took their Oath seriously, pledging their lives, their honor and their fortune, that others may live in the land governed by a Constitution that recognizes the Individual Natural Rights of all men and women. They were willing to sacrifice everything, that others may be free.

We, at Oath Keepers, salute those Fallen Warriors. We will not forget their sacrifice. And we will continue to stand by the Constitution, and for the Rights of all Americans. There are those who think the Constitution is just a piece of paper. It is far more than that. It is America. It is what we believe in. To deny that is to disrespect the sacrifices of our Fallen Warriors, of those who fought to defend the America they believe in.

Every day should be Memorial Day. Each American should, each day, remember what our Fallen Warriors fought, and died, for.

Today, our Natural Rights are being attacked as never before.  It is time for all Americans to stand up and say, NO, to those who deny our Natural Rights. It is time for meely-mouthed politicians to step down, if they will not observe the Constitution, and the Oath they took to defend and protect it.

  1. Something like 1/2 of 1% has a family connection to the military. Not enough parents are raising their kids to properly respect and understand the high price paid by so many and instead they choose to sit idly by as our nation’s founding ideals are slowly and purposely torn asunder.

  2. I agree Shorty.

    Hamilton, in one of his many warnings against permitting public servants to flout the people’s mandate as to the limits on government’s power, as specified in their basic laws (Constitutions) creating their governments: …”that any such defiance, by public servants, of the Constitution would be “a treasonable usurpation upon the power and majesty of the people . . .”

    I have to agree here with Hamilton, Shorty, they are not “meely-mouthed politicians”, they are treasonous politicians. As I understand the definition of treason as always being against the “sovereign”, and here in America the people are the sovereigns, with the US Constitution the rules and LAWS ALL must follow.

    Samuel Adams stated: “Let us remember, that ‘if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others [Posterity] in our doom'”

    The US Constitution and each state Constitution are laws – supreme (US), and highest the Constitution of each state; the US defines the government, requires those that serve for them to have any LAWFUL authority here, they MUST support and defend the US Constitution, and assigns the powers and duties that go to each BRANCH; plus is the contract they agree to in order to serve in that position. Each state Constitution does and is the same, being one of the contracts ALL state employees are under, with the US Constitution being the second and supreme that they are required to support both.

    Ronald Reagan: “I had a copy of the Soviet Constitution and I read it with great interest. And I saw all kinds of terms in there that sound just exactly like our own: ‘Freedom of assembly’ and ‘freedom of speech’ and so forth. Of course, they don’t allow them to have those things, but they’re in there in the constitution. But I began to wonder about the other constitutions – everyone has one – and our own, and why so much emphasis on ours.

    And then I found out, and the answer was very simple – that’s why you don’t notice it at first. But it is so great that it tells the entire difference.

    All those other constitutions are documents that say, ‘We, the government, allow the people the following rights,’ AND OUR CONSTITUTION SAYS ‘WE THE PEOPLE, ALLOW THE GOVERNMENT THE FOLLOWING PRIVILEGES AND RIGHTS.’ WE GIVE OUR PERMISSION TO GOVERNMENT TO DO THE THINGS THAT IT DOES. And THAT’S THE WHOLE STORY OF THE DIFFERENCE – WHY WE ARE UNIQUE IN THE WORLD and why no matter what our troubles may be, we’re going to overcome”.

    James Madison, Federalist 45: ” It is in sharpest contrast that each State government is a full-power Republic which possesses the vast and varied powers needed to administer intra-State affairs–“all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State” (and still quoting Fed 45). “The full-power Republic of each State is subject to the State Constitution, as well as to the united States Constitution as the “supreme Law of the Land.” Neither the Federal, nor any State, government therefore possesses legal sovereignty – the unlimited power of sovereignty–while the people’s political sovereignty is limited in favor of preserving inviolate the God-given, unalienable rights of each Individual.”

    Our American “philosophy”, along with our system of constitutionally limited government contemplates that the people of the several States – acting through our own State governments – if not also corrupted; and on their own as self-defense and defense of our country and legitimate government will, in last resort if forced to in order to remove those corrupt “serving” within our governments (state and federal), use force to oppose any force employed by the Federal usurpers, that “We…” will use military force (the Militia of the several States) to oppose any military force used by such corrupt, even traitorous usurpers.

    – Since our elections are controlled by outside parties, and election fraud runs rampant the peoples voice here is silenced and we cannot remove the corrupt or even run the people we want in office state or federal.

    – The judicial branch has deliberately given themselves the “power” to interpret the US Constitution and corrupted the Grand Jury with lies and deceit.

    – The Militia of the several states was disbanded and the corrupt and treasonous serving within our governments have been trying to take our weapons when they are the *”birthright of every American” (yeah, quote to follow /big grin).

    None of those listed above are under the power and authority of those that serve within our governments except to set the day/times of elections, they are the PEOPLES TOOLS which is why Joseph Stalin said in 1933:

    ”The United States should get rid of its militias”.

    Those that serve within our governments did exactly that in every way they could.

    Notice that in Cockrum v. State that it is said that bearing arms is ONE of the “high powers delegated directly to the citizen, and is excepted out of the general powers of government”. “…one… meaning there are more that are ” excepted out of the general powers of government”.

    Cockrum v. State: “The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers delegated directly to the citizen, and is excepted out of the general powers of government. A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power”.

    Those things listed above are what those being honored on Memorial Day died for. Those things listed and more. How are we honoring them for their sacrifices when we allow this corruption of our government, this attack to destroy it from within to continue?

    All of the corrupt, regardless of the position they occupy, MUST be arrested, prosecuted, and those that are/were treasonous in any of their actions must get the maximum sentence we can apply, unless they repent and start fighting for our nation NOW.

    *Tench Coxe: “Who are the militia? are they not ourselves. Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and EVERY OTHER TERRIBLE IMPLEMENT OF THE SOLDIER, ARE THE BIRTH-RIGHT OF AN AMERICAN… THE UNLIMITED POWER OF THE SWORD IS NOT IN THE HANDS OF EITHER THE FEDERAL OR STATE GOVERNMENTS BUT, where I trust in God it will ever remain, IN THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE.” (caps are mine)

  3. Our VFW/Legion Posts marched in a downpour, pausing to pay respects at our veteran’s memorial, and finished with a ceremony at our local cemetery. I was amazed to see all of the families, individuals and most of all young people who stood in the pouring rain to pay respect to the colors, honor our fallen comrades and thank us vets for our service. Patriotism is not gone in our part of America. Some folks in the parade wanted to cancel but our groups reminded them that we were sure that our comrades who made the ultimate sacrifice would gladly march in any storm if they could. The organizers relented and we marched.

    Don’t fall prey to the message of failure being forced on us by the lame stream media. America does still care about sacrifice and service. I experienced it first hand. Those folks who came out in that awful weather rekindled my faith in our country and people. Memorial Day 2015 will be one of my cherished memories.
