There Will Be No Second American Revolution: The Futility of an Armed Revolt

“A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.”—James Madison

America is a ticking time bomb.

All that remains to be seen is who—or what—will set fire to the fuse.

We are poised at what seems to be the pinnacle of a manufactured breakdown, with police shooting unarmed citizens, snipers shooting police, global and domestic violence rising, and a political showdown between two presidential candidates equally matched in unpopularity.

The preparations for the Republican and Democratic national conventions taking place in Cleveland and Philadelphia—augmented by a $50 million federal security grant for each city—provide a foretaste of how the government plans to deal with any individual or group that steps out of line: they will be censored, silenced, spied on, caged, intimidated, interrogated, investigated, recorded, tracked, labeled, held at gunpoint, detained, restrained, arrested, tried and found guilty.

For instance, anticipating civil unrest and mass demonstrations in connection with the Republican Party convention, Cleveland officials set up makeshift prisons, extra courtrooms to handle protesters, and shut down a local university in order to house 1,700 riot police and their weapons. The city’s courts are preparing to process up to 1,000 people a day. Additionally, the FBI has also been conducting “interviews” with activists in advance of the conventions to discourage them from engaging in protests.

Make no mistake, the government is ready for a civil uprising.

Indeed, the government has been preparing for this moment for years.

A 2008 Army War College report revealed that “widespread civil violence inside the United States would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security.” The 44-page report goes on to warn that potential causes for such civil unrest could include another terrorist attack, “unforeseen economic collapse, loss of functioning political and legal order, purposeful domestic resistance or insurgency, pervasive public health emergencies, and catastrophic natural and human disasters.”

What defeatist drivel.  Like one of the commenters said below, I too think Whitehead has done some good work in the past, as a contitutionalist lawyer, but he is now out of his element and jumping the shark into Borg-like “resistance is futile” surrender-monkey territory.   Frankly, I don’t think defeatist drivel like this belongs on our site and I have to wonder why Elias posted it, but I will allow it to remain up so we can make fun of it and point to it as an example of the hand-wringing defeatism that has taken hold of some people in the broader liberty movement.

Oddly enough, Whitehead goes on to say:

Of course, that’s the point.

The powers-that-be want us to feel vulnerable.

They want us to fear each other and trust the government’s hired gunmen to keep us safe from terrorists, extremists, jihadists, psychopaths, etc.

Most of all, the powers-that-be want us to feel powerless to protect ourselves and reliant on and grateful for the dubious protection provided by the American police state.

Their strategy is working.

The tree of liberty is dying.

Now that I agree with.  That is the point, and that is the plan of the globalist elites pulling the strings of the military-industrial, domestic surveillance, total-information-awareness police state that is being erected over us.  “They” want us to feel powerless and that resistance is futile, and that we could never win.    Unfortunately, Whitehead himself falls for it.   After pointing out the plans of the bad people to demoralize us and make us feel like our only choice is submission or destruction, Whitehead says:

There will be no second American Revolution.

There is no place in our nation for the kind of armed revolution our forefathers mounted against a tyrannical Great Britain. Such an act would be futile and tragic. We are no longer dealing with a distant, imperial king but with a tyrant of our own making: a militarized, technologized, heavily-financed bureaucratic machine that operates beyond the reach of the law.

The message being sent to the citizenry is clear: there will be no revolution, armed or otherwise.

Anyone who believes that they can wage—and win—an armed revolt against the American police state has not been paying attention. Those who wage violence against the government and their fellow citizens are playing right into the government’s hands. Violence cannot and will not be the answer to what ails America.

Whether instigated by the government or the citizenry, violence will only lead to more violence. It does not matter how much firepower you have. The government has more firepower.

It does not matter how long you think you can hold out by relying on survivalist skills, guerilla tactics and sheer grit. The government has the resources to outwait, out-starve, outman, outgun and generally overpower you.

This government of wolves will not be overtaken by force.

Bull.  This government of wolves (or wheenie lawyers an bureaucrats who give orders to hired wolves) is scared shitless of all of us armed veterans, and especially the great mass of recent combat veterans from fifteen years of warfare in Afghanistan and Iraq.   They are also afraid of all of the traditional American, country-boy gun owners who grew up running around barefoot, shooting and hunting in the Mountains, woods, and fields, that constitute the “American Warrior Class” (current serving military, veterans, and gun owners).   ‘ The vast majority of the “trigger pullers” in the infantry come from the country, and the country boys who didn’t serve can still shoot and still grew up hunting, and have learned a thing or two from their fathers, brothers, cousins, uncles, who did serve.  And many of the local police come from that same warrior class of military and gun owners.  We are EVERYWHERE, we are armed, and we are not just in the regime’s rear and in its supply lines, we are inside the regime itself, inside the very military that regime desperately wants to use against us, but fears having it turn on them.   And “they” can try to purge us out, but short of disbanding the U.S. Marine Corps and the Army infantry, they have no choice but to deal with the fact that their own infantry is US.

“They” have not yet successfully indoctrinated the majority of that American warrior class to be subservient slaves/unthinking enforcers, nor have they disarmed us, but because Marxists often believe their own bull, and project onto us their own cowardice and incompetence, they may well actually believe they could pull it off.   This brings to my mind Matt Bracken’s excellent short story, “What I Saw at the Coup” (highly recommended reading!).   That is how it would turn out for these Marxist “useful idiots” if they actually tried to use a manufactured crisis to implement martial law and use military force on the American people.

Which is why the globalist elites have to try to make things so bad, so catastrophic, that they will trick the majority of the police and military into going along with it, to keep “law and order” like we saw during Katrina, and trick the majority of veterans and gun owners into also going along with it in the name of national security and order.

And that is why we are now seeing the “perfect storm” of economic crisis, terrorism, domestic unrest, and now open agitation by far left, Marxist, and racist cop killers to create a race war, and divide and conquer the American people along racial lines, class lines, and to pit the people v. the police, and especially to pit the veterans against the police (they want to trick those of us in the American warrior class into killing each other, so there are fewer of us to fight back against the elites.  I have been warning for three years now that this Fourth Generation warfare “perfect storm” assault on the Republic is coming.  Others, such as Matt Bracken, have also been warning that it is coming, noting the unholy alliance between the radical left and the radical jihadists, both of whom hate Western Civilization.

But behind the scenes, it is the global elites and international banking class that is pulling the strings of the Marxists and the Jihadists, and fund their efforts.

What remains for us to decide is how we counter it.  After telling you any armed conflict against the oath-breaking oppressors would be futile, Whitehead closes his piece with some vague advice:

If there is to be any hope of reclaiming our government and restoring our freedoms, it will require a different kind of coup: nonviolent, strategic and grassroots, starting locally and trickling upwards. Such revolutions are slow and painstaking. They are political, in part, but not through any established parties or politicians.

Most of all, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, for any chance of success, such a revolution will require more than a change of politics: it will require a change of heart among the American people, a reawakening of the American spirit, and a citizenry that cares more about their freedoms than their fantasy games.

I guess you are supposed to read his book to find out more.   I do agree that we need to focus on local and working from the ground up, and that it can’t just be political, but what he is missing, or dancing around, is the need to revitalize the militia of the several states.  You want to reawaken the American spirit, and cause a change of heart, revitalize the militia, and you will cause that change, but also you will strengthen the military capacity of the American people, and restore that institution that the Founders decreed to be “necessary for the security of a free state.”   And a real militia is not Bubba and his dozen buddies.  A real militia is all of the able-bodied people in a community (or at least all of the able bodied patriotic Americans who still believe in individual liberty and the Constitution, and leaving out the communists and the racists).   Until we do that, this nation will not be secure or free.

I challenge each of you, and all of us, to take concrete steps, right now, to get that done – to revitalize the militia and become the security of a free state.   What steps are those?   Well:

  1.  Go armed at all times, in all places.  Take that personal responsibility to be the security “first responder” for your community.  Understand and accept that the police are really the “second responders” not the first, because they are unlikely to be on scene during an attack.  They have to react and show up after the attack is underway.  But the people are always on scene, so the people themselves must be the first responders.  And don’t think of your gun as just for your own protection or the protection of your loved ones.  Think higher than that, to the ideals of the Founders, so that your handgun and your rifle are for PUBLIC defense too – for the defense of the community.
  2. Be prepared to personally step in and protect your community against any terrorist, be it a jihadist, a crazed “active shooter” or a cop killer.   Be mentally prepared to close with and kill the enemy (as we used to say in the infantry), and carry the tools you would need to do it.  That means not just a handgun on your person, but also a rifle or shotgun in your vehicle with the appropriate chest rig and ammo carrying webgear or “active shooter response bag” and also hard rifle plates, if you have them.  Be ready for the worst case scenario.  It is better to have that gear and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  Worried about being shot by the police?  Then coordinate with them ahead of time so they will know what you will be wearing (a particular color arm band, a particular raid jacket, hat, etc).   Be part of the community response, not a useless, gap-mouthed spectator sheep.  Be a damned warrior.    If six jihadists with body armor and AKs attack your local school, church, or mall, your local cops will be overwhelmed, and they will need the help of the veterans and gun owners to help them put a stop to the killing.  Get ready to do that now.   Step up and do what is right.  Think what would Patrick Henry or Sam Adams do?  What would Captain Parker do?   In their day, all the men were considered the militia, and all of them would have turned out, musket and hatchet in hand, to stop such an attack.   Can you imagine them seeing or hearing of an attack by murderous maniacs on a school, church, or town market and just sitting back and saying “well, I hope the sheriff gets there in time”?  No friggin way.  They would have jumped right in and put a stop to it themselves.  That’s what real Americans do.  That’s what free men do.  That’s what warriors do.
  3. Be prepared to personally step up and back up your local police at all times, in all places.  Again, coordinate with them.  Now is the best time to reach out to them and offer your assistance, just like our Baton Rouge, Louisiana chapter is doing today.   Offer to “watch their six” as part of our Operation Backstop (which will be fulling launched by tomorrow morning).    In just a bit I will post the letter the Baton Rouge Oath Keepers are giving their sheriff and Chief of Police today.   Take that letter and adapt it to your local area and drive on!  Make the introduction, and make the offer.   Obviously, while at it you can let them know that you expect them to abide by the Constitution and you will not help them do anything that would violate it.   But lead with the offer of help, and then you can remind them of the bright lines of the Bill of Rights once they get to know you.
  4. CREATE COMMUNITY DEFENSE (with the ultimate goal being the restoration of a true militia, made up of all able-bodied citizens in your town, county, and state).   As my friend Kevin Reeve of Onpoint Tactical says, “training trumps gear.  But community trumps both training and gear.”  You certainly do need training in how to use your stack of prepper stuff, but at the same time you need to cultivate community because no matter how “high speed, low drag” you are (or think you are), and no matter what cool-guy gear you have, you gotta sleep sometime, and no lone wolf is going to be able to fight off a gang when they come to take your stuff.   The “secret squirrel” prepper model will not cut it.  All that does is store up stuff for MS 13 or whatever other gang shows up on your block.  Without real security, all your stash will belong to them, along with your head.   So, build a community defense team.  Start with a:
  5. Neighborhood watch made up of the people who live around you in your immediate neighborhood or local area.   After your own family being squared away, that neighborhood watch is the most critical element, because if you don’t have security for your home, nothing else will matter.  And no first responder  -no cop, no fire-fighter, no EMT, no posse, and no militia, is going to go anywhere to project out and assist the community if their family is not safe.   We see that in any disaster, man made or natural.  If the cop’s family is at risk, the cop will go home and protect his family.   So will all the other first responders.  So will you.  So, get the neighborhood watch, with teeth, started.   Think of them as the Home Guard.  Then build from there, as recommended in our CPT program.
  6. Church Security Team.   From the neighborhood, the next level up is your local church.  Every church men’s group should be the church security team.  Every church women’s group can focus on food storage and preparedeness.  Whatever works in your church.   Your church needs to be ready, willing, and able to perform the function of being an emergency shelter to those in need, and the principle relief and charity mechanism for those in need.  And it must be able to protect itself, hence the security force. And that security force needs to guard it against terror attack or lone-nut active shooters, and prepare to provide security in times of civil disturbance and Without Rule Of Law (WROL) scenarios.
  7. VFW Hall serving as Civil Defense Force (and same for American Legion, Marine Corps League, etc).   The veterans orgs already have men, leadership, a building, and funds, but they need to understand that they are already a unit, and then step up to be a civil defense and security force for the community.  They have knowledgeable veterans from every imaginable MOS who can serve as trainers and leaders and pas on their knowledge to the next generation.  They can help form the nucleous of a real town defense force or a Sheriff Posse or town police reserve or auxiliary.  They just need someone to wake them up to see the clear and present threat and their duty.   Build security teams in all of those social institutions, and work up to creating:
  8. A Town Watch or town security force.  That Town Watch (with teeth) must be from the whole town, and for the whole town.  It should not be called the Mayberry Oath Keepers Town Watch.  It should just be the “Mayberry Town Watch” period.   It is about the town, not any group.  And that town watch can include everyone as everyone can contribute something.   The more fit and capable can be the security team or QRF within that town watch (much like the Minuteman Companies in the Founders’ day were the more fit and highly trained men within the broader town militia system.  and with the more long term goal being a large sheriff posse behind a good sheriff, and then an honest to God town militia of at least company size made up of all able-bodied patriotic citizens in the town, with the town militias then being companies within the larger County militia.   Shoot for a company size element, or more, in each town.   Then work on the county level to organize and coordinate them all.  Call them a Civil Defense team, or Town Security Team, or Town Watch, or whatever works to get it done, and then when it is up and running, you can seek official elected government sanction as a true militia.   I will write more extensively on this in the future, but for now, start at that neighborhood watch level and also start a town level “Training Band” or “Carbine Club” (hat tip to Matt Bracken on that) using your Oath Keepers CPT as training cadre to train the whole town. And don’t just think in terms of guns and tactics.  Think also about communications, emergency medical, engineering, food storage, and intelligence.  Then:
  9. Work to Revitalize the Militia.  Advocate for it, push for it, light a fire under the politicians to get it done, pestering them at every level – town, county, state -but while you do that, build all the above so you will have a well trained, well organized, well equipped, well supplied, united community of volunteers that can then serve as the militia in short order.  That is the ultimate goal.  And a real militia system would mean every town would have a militia, made up of all able-bodied citizens in the town , with at least a company sized element, and then each town militia would be part of the county militia, and each county militia would be part of the state militia.   Anything less really doesn’t deserve to be called a militia, so call it something else (as state above) until it is up to snuff as the real deal.    – Stewart

  1. I would have to point to Turkey and say the will of the people is a huge force even for a militarized bureaucracy. It seems like another article for demoralizing the reader and get you to believe what they want you to believe.

  2. I have immense respect for John Whitehead. However, I sincerely believe he is wrong in his assessment. He has spent far too much time in Virginia and probably not enough time in the rural states. While an organized revolution may not be possible, a rolling civil war certainly is. In fact I deem it probable. What that then becomes, as it takes on its own life, is another matter entirely. Like a large forest fire it will eventually create its own weather. No one in their right mind wants such a thing.

    1. Rutherford Institute is wrong im sure the masses are pissed off in the right direction even without talking to one another. when you have nothing else to lose you lose it in the hopes youre kids have a better life.

      Just saw this today makes my blood boil
      NavyJack – President Obama Encourages Police to Warm-up to the “Legitimate” Concerns of the Black Lives Matter Movement and a Daytona Police Squad Car is Firebombed

      talk about a true instigator. cant help but notice the close proximity of dates of events and the last bilderberg meeting june 9th-12th 2016.

      Revel in your confidence today because you will not win tomorrow. JT

      1. Google – Bob Avakian + Revolutionary Communist Party + Black Lives Matter.
        This will give you a good idea of what the black lives matter movement is all about.

  3. He sounds like the Loyalists and naysayers of colonial times who said a ragtag bunch of colonists couldn’t possibly defeat the mighty British army.

  4. First off, he did not say anything that we haven’t heard before.
    Secondly, he is not very good at math. For, instance 1 million in uniform ( maybe 1/ 4 actual fighters ), while there are 800,000 veterans just in PA.
    Third, the security apparatus can not even handle the terrorists. And there are only a couple of them ( relatively speaking ). It is only easy to track people because they make it easy. What will they do if everyone tries to make it hard ?
    Fourth, he is assuming that all those in uniform will support the government in a revolution.

    1. Exactly, spot on. Whitehead has completely lost my respect. If I didn’t know any better I’d say that it was a psyop piece meant to dissuade the public.

  5. Revolution—> Act or acts that create a new form of government or reconstruction of said governments Constitution. That was paraphrased.

    Revolutions do not have to be all “Violent” to be successful. In fact, these Progressives have done a pretty fair job over the last 150 years of “Reconstructing” this country. Because we have strayed so far from our Constitution, it would be Revolutionary to get back to it. Here’s some ideas.

    Infect the schools; become a teacher, administrator, or get on a board. Infect the Corporations. Get Elected. Go from the means streets of Protest to the Board rooms of everything USA. Create monetary generating trusts, like the “Trust for Public Land.” They buy up small tracts and then start dictating the rules for huge swaths around them via Land Use Agreements, Etc. I suggest we do the same to offset their deeds. The “Nature Conservancy” is another one. It needs to be semi-coordinated, but Action is key.

    Add to all this the Preparations that Stewart suggests, and we will prevail. Act in the best interests of the Republic, but plan for the inevitability of violence. Just don’t start it. Be on the right side of history and things will sort themselves out fine…..

    1. Great advice! Retain the moral high ground, stand for what is right, and don’t initiate violence. Remember the words of Caption Parker on Lexington Green.

      And above all remember that the entire point of SPLC and ADL and all of their demonizing of us patriots has been to get the police to see us as their enemies, and to pit the cops against the veterans. Let’s now fall for that trick either. And whenever we step up in support of the local police (so long as they abide by the Constitution) and so long as we are overtly and strongly anti-terrorist, anti-racist, and anti-active shooter and anti-cop killer, the SPLC will not be able to successfully demonize us and convince the police that we are the bad guys. it won’t work. Just like it didn’t work when we stepped up and guarded the recruiting centers. That told all with eyes who we were and what we were about. In spades.


    2. You are right, Greg. I remember well the ‘Flower Power’ revolution in the Philippines. That was when the people rose up to depose Ferdinand Marcos. It was a beautiful sight to behold. The US, by the way, was propping up Marcos but the will of the people prevailed. Sadly however, the people didn’t remain vigilant. They ousted a dictator but replaced him with a puppet of TPTB; a friend of the Clinton’s. I doubt a revolution like that will ever be repeated. For us, shots have already been fired. But we must stand. Stand defiant against tyranny. Stand when they threaten. Stand when they throw us into prison. Stand when they shoot us in the streets. Why? Because “All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing”.

    3. I’ve posted this before, as individuals, each has their own line in the sand. “1776” is an example of group think, however one individual fired the first shot, while many stood frozen in that moment, many others responded with fire. The Bundy ranch stand off was a moment in time when their was in my estimation a large amount of public support for the Bundy’s and a lot of bad press for the BLM. My opinion is the moment was a lost opportunity. One patriot firing upon the mercenaries hiding behind their SUVs would have set this country into a new direction. The anit constitutional government would have pulled all the stops out to disarm America. Americans would have pushed back with a resolve beyond the governments anticipation or capability to control. As a group, OK has binding bylaws.. As individuals, we exercise our individual and unique flash points. It only takes one.

      It is not our mission to instigate, it is to uphold our oath; and also to stand as individuals, to lead and/or follow a leader..


      1. Interesting points WGP. Starting with the first point; one of our problems right now is that our countrymen have allowed themselves to be thoroughly divided. As Stewart has pointed out several times; “Join/Build a Militia in your area.” However, it goes deeper than that. Putting aside the fact that all these groups protesting and kicking each other in the teeth have the same problem (Governmental Control), there is no core group to rally around. In the Revolution it was the church groups (I believe the Black Robes) that squashed the Brits in individual skirmishes as needed. Right now we really don’t have that sort of cohesiveness.

        Optics are important; Currently the MSM is controlling the narratives. Every time there is a “Focusing Moment” they co-op it as if they were warning against said actions all along, when in reality they usually encourage these movements. When we look at Malheur from 30,000 feet, we saw people exercising their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights on public lands. I can give you several Progressive Narratives from that incident, but will just offer one for this discussion: “It’s Public land, it belongs to all of us. They have no right to take it over.” The Progressive rallied around this narrative. We had a simple, mostly unused counter; “yes, it’s all of our land and as such they are simply pushing their version of Land Use.” Something to that effect. Let’s face it, this Government land grab is out of hand, but more importantly is the disenfranchisement of those who wish to use it for their purpose of say, “Target Practice?” What would be even more detrimental is if this land was put up for sale in large tracts. The Megacorporations would snatch it up on the cheap and virtually deny access to everyone. Point is, land and other forms of self determination are very important here. Even more important, is that the first “Focusing Act” must be egregious enough that all media sources point out its vile nature. Think Kent State.

        As aforementioned the Mega-corps are in bed with the Government. Especially Banks and Insurance companies. They have inserted a cozy little agreement in the NDAA or Patriot Act that formed the . They have utilized this council for squashing the Occupy movement. Could you imagine what they may do if the properties and items they hold paper on were being destroyed? Include the Insurance agencies losses and we would have a serious monetary hill to overcome. Where would we be supplied from?

        If this thing comes to fruition it will have a flavor of; people being hauled out of their houses in the middle of night, to cast suspicion on those individuals and pull them from the ranks. The military or domestic federal police forces will start executing folk right in the daytime. That’s when the optics will shift. Then there will be an asymmetrical uprising. BTW, we have more at our disposal for that purpose than people know about. Then we will need support, possibly from another country. Which one? At what cost?

        All the things in the last paragraph are secondary, because it starts with reaching across the aisle to form alliances now. Here’s an example; Occupy is demonstrating against the 1% richest. It just so happens that those 1% are from the Mega-corps, that have migrated to a highly regulatory and communistic type structure. There’s a possible bonding mechanism. How about this one; Black lives matter is against cops shooting innocent folk. Their methods suck, but they have a point. If we could find a bond with them, maybe we could steer them in the proper direction, which would be a 2fer. Cops and BLM. It all starts with alliances…..

  6. What he doesn’t realize is that lately people are not just talking about prepping for what may come and buying tacti-cool stuff, but actually coming to the ranges to learn to use it. It’s becoming a bit overwhelming at the range I work at. The match directors have called an impromptu meeting to try to come up with plans to help deal with the increase in activity and I’m not talking about vets or militia types. The soccer moms and senior citizens are beginning to get worried and are showing up.

    1. People are becoming educated and thinking about , keep talking to everyone you meet . Every state I go to I’m amazed at home many people are waking up! Marketing, education, prepping and organising are key now ,militias and military vets will seize the day. Numbers alone will chase the elite on to their yachts and islands.

  7. Pretty dark assessment…like so many, many things in this “hot mess” as Sheriff Clarke called it back on June 11. What he misses IMHO is the numbers of rank and file across all agencies of law enforcement, military and first responders who are with us “quietly” drawing a paycheck while they can. Maybe I’m too optimistic…but I think that is a very big number.

  8. Well….I guess we wont know for sure til we have the ultimate conflict. I don’t care to have conflict but if its a war they want, Let them fire the first shots and we WILL take it from there and see who comes out on top.

  9. Ha Ha! You will never fight back! You think maintaining your “moral high ground” will defeat them? Think they give a crap about your “moral high ground”?

    They just keep stabbing you in your prolapsed butts, and you talk about keeping the “moral high ground”.

    You can NOT escape this:

    What you had: A republic if YOU can keep it.

    How to keep it: The tree of liberty must be refreshed…

    If you want your freedom and liberty back, you have to take the moral high ground and go get it back.

    It’s funny. Here is your government, building block by block, the globalist NWO pyramid. The plan is to lay the capstone in 2030. And I can see it now…

    “That’s it! They placed the capstone! We’re not gonna take it no more!”

    Sure you will. You won’t even take a stand against the blocks they have already placed on the pyramid. Because, you are taking the “moral high ground”. And what exactly is the “moral high ground”? Keep obeying the laws of the pyramid, one block at a time?

    And… “Let them take the first shots”? How many shots do they have to take before you call it the first shot? I tell you what, disobey all those unconstitutional edicts, resist, and watch them fire those many, many, many “first shots” as they have been doing for years. But see, that was them, that other guy, not you, so it’s none of your business.

    Yeah. I can hear it. “Don’t shoot until they are at your backs bayoneting you up your butts!” Meh. But Americans are used to it anyhow. Can’t even feel it anymore because their butts are prolapsed. The only way they know it, is if they turn around and see Mr. Government Agent behind them smiling that evil smile… saying, “What are you going to do about it.” As Americans scream, “Rape!” Not bothering to save themselves because… the police will save them? The military? Maybe vote the rapists out?

    I’ll tell you what the “moral high ground” has become. Rape the rapist back! Don’t gouge out its eyes. Don’t stab it. Don’t kill it. Rape it back and enjoy it. Because killing your rapist is not the “moral high ground”. And it’s scary and messy. As it drips down your thighs.

    The “moral high ground”. It was lost a long time ago.

    1. “You think maintaining your “moral high ground” will defeat them? Think they give a crap about your “moral high ground”?’

      Yes, because the “moral high ground” is the US Constitution, our legitimate government. Defending it is the lawful requirement of all who took Oaths.

      We know they don’t ” give a crap”. We know that by their actions, corrupt and treasonous, and when force is threatened and/or used by them it then becomes *Terrorism.

      *28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “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”.

      “It’s funny. Here is your government,…”

      Guess you have not heard that when those that serve within our governments break their Oaths and the supreme Law and Contract that they ALL are under and required to support and defend, then until we replace them with people who will do the duties as assigned, take and KEEP the Oath we do NOT have a government in place. Read the US Constitution, understand that those that serve do not have any authority delegated to the “person” as it is delegated to the branch and to specific named offices within a branch. Those that serve within our governments are ALLOWED to use that authority and represent the American people and the USA for as long as they do the duties as assigned, take and KEEP the Oath.

      Dr. Vieira says it much better: “This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a matter of what the Constitution provides… The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights… The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights.

      The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution. Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call a legal fiction.” (end quote)

      What you are discussing is a legal fiction.

      We are not talking about elections except to constitutionally bring them back to the high standard they are REQUIRED to have – make them honest; and suggestions as to who should be running for what office. We are talking about replacing the scum with new people who will do the duty as they are required in writing – and they agreed to so that they could occupy that position – as we are required to do.

      Thomas Jefferson: “When once a republic is corrupted, there is no possibility of remedying any of the growing evils but by removing the corruption and restoring its lost principles; every other correction is either useless or a new evil.”

      Consider this by an ex General and ex US President, participate and a signer of about what our US Constitution REQUIRES of all American people.

      George Washington: “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government…, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.”

      Now you understand the LAWFUL and required type of enforcement here are…
      Some other things to consider.

      St John Tucker: “The congress of the United States possesses no power to regulate, or interfere with the domestic concerns, or police of any state: it belongs not to them to establish any rules respecting the rights of property; nor will the constitution permit any prohibition of arms to the people;…”

      Alexander Hamilton, Federalist 33: “…If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard [The Constitution] they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify….”

      Hamilton, Federalist 33: “But it will not follow from this doctrine [that laws passed by Congress are the Supreme law of the land] that acts of the large society which are NOT PURSUANT to its constitutional powers, but which are invasions of the residuary authorities of the smaller societies, will become the supreme law of the land. These will be merely acts of usurpation, and will deserve to be treated as such.”

      1. Cal chimes in: “Yes, because the “moral high ground” is the US Constitution, our legitimate government.”

        The consteetootion is a damn piece of paper. It feels nothing one way or the other. It feels neither moral, or immoral.

        You can type all the founding fudders until your face is green. Means nothing. The consteetootion means nothing to those who daily usurp it. Founding fudders quotes means nothing to those who daily spit on your freedom and liberty.

        The only things that are relevant, is:

        1. What you had: If you can keep it.

        2. How to keep it: The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time…

        No one cares about your “moral high-ground ” Cal. Pontificating through the mouth will get you nowhere anymore. As I have said in another comment, I’ve watched this “patriot movement” for 37 years. And there is not one damn thing that you, or anyone else has said, that hasn’t been said, going back 37 years plus. Maybe if we just keep repeating it, the bad guys will take the “patriot… movement” seriously?

        Face it, that “moral” piece of parchment has been ignored, spit on, assaulted, beaten, raped, shot, and thrown into prison for life… and its children, its posterity, does what? It whimpers. It throws a temper-tantrum. All the while their step-daddies slap the children around like an abusive step-dad. And the children whimper. And the children throw temper-tantrums.

        Face it. You are never getting your freedom and liberty back. At best, when it gets right down to it, we will be on the run, and surviving.

        I am reminded that Christ told the Pharisees that they were nothing but a bunch of lip servers.

    2. Curtis, damn if you don’t make a good point. I’m not quite ready for you but . . . you make a good point.

  10. The social engineers have creatively set-us-up and the “divide and conquer” strategies (still underway), began around 2000.

    Many of us have discussed the problems we face and how difficult any attempt to “arrest tyrants” would be…plus the simple fact, the invasion of illegal aliens and refugees (by design) is the weapon for controlling all aspects of our lives through expanded surveillance under a growing militarized police state.

    Is it all over for us? Will Trump turn this country around? Or will Trump be forced to fall in-step with the globalist’s plans for our virtual prison, much like the Soviet era when the KGB kept tabs on everyone, dissenters arrested while only the privileged could leave the country for business or pleasure. Note: Notice the expanding TSA express kiosk’s for the privileged while the rest of us have to be groped and suspected as terrorists.

    Most of us know that under Hillary Clinton, she and Bill Clinton will advance us into absolute tyranny under a communist dictatorship with all the bells and whistles of the Soviet era. Around 1947… after WWII, the stage was set for THEIR version of Hitler’s vision for a One World Order to begin.

    All we have to do is look back, just after WWII, when thousands of NAZI’s were relocated to the U.S. under “Operation Paperclip.” Once in place, the psychological warfare began on all Americans and through the government’s public education system, they have finally reached the point of where THEY want us to be now. This generation of college graduates want socialism, because they have been brainwashed by the school system.

    “What we are now experiencing is a civil war, devised and instigated in part by the U.S. government.”

    Today, our government has been infiltrated by Islamic predators at every level and Sharia Law is just around the corner, which undoubtedly will challenge our Constitution and Civil Rights. The kick-off began with 9/11 by the Bush Administration in participation with Saudi Intelligence and high level (Muslim) business men with direct connections to the Royal Family. THEY basically hoodwinked most every American into a flag waving patriot frenzy, causing thousands of our men and women to die needlessly in illegal wars created by Bush and the Saudi’s.

    Uncovering the truth about 9/11 was the beginning of the end. The truth stung us like a nightmare on steroids, causing a revolt that has reached the point of no return.

    Will we as a country go through a Soviet style control to only find ourselves at the mercy of tyrants, or can we eventually turn the country back to a Christian Nation of Constitutional laws?

    I agree it will never happen by a 1775 style uprising for the several reasons outlined in John Whitehead’s article, but other options will require pain staking removal of those in local government and replace them with true Constitutionalists. From there, it has to expand to the state level and so on.

    Unfortunately, many of us will be dead and gone before this country is where it was before 1947 and in the meanwhile, America will be in a direct war, both internally and internationally soon enough.

  11. I think it is good that Elias posted this article as it is good to kindle the heart with passionate resolve against defeatist ideologies such as written herein. For as long as there still beats but just one patriotic heart for liberty and freedom, then rest assured that the Constitution of the United States of America has not perished from this earth. Molon Labe!

  12. America’s post WW2 military history teaches us the formula for defeating Amurrica’s federal forces.

  13. Moral high ground has become synonymous with backing down. Screw the “moral high ground.” If you knew the things they are doing to us, you would be saying the same thing. The have already fired the first shots a long time ago. Everyone wants to use the system to fix the system. Well, that chance has long since passed. That’s NOT an option anymore. You claim to be warriors but don’t want to fight. Stand up, suit up, and declare your independence. Let them know, by word and action, that you will not conform to their will. “Think not that I come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”

      1. Stewart… their are no Founding Fathers here. And what worked for the Founders, is not going to work for us. We are way past what the Founders put up with, until they started shooting. And as for that Ft. Sumter analogy that some like to proclaim, just in case no has realized yet, we are not on the outside looking in, we are all inside… the Ft. Sumter prison. No one needs to attack Ft. Sumter, they need to break out.

  14. Curtis has a tremendously strong point, and I like his “block by block” assessment. Yes, we prepare, we train, and we educate. But how many of us OK members still pay taxes and a cable bill? In other words, how many of us continue to feed the beast?

  15. Oath Keepers are all talk! Been waiting for years to back them
    up. Maybe it’s time we took the lead.

    1. I wouldn’t say that tpakya. I would say that we all live and learn. And we all live and learn quicker in more fluid situations…hopefully. Subsidiarity brother…Oath Keepers CPT. We need to re-fortify ourselves at the local level while we still can.

  16. Yep. In my recollection, can’t recall death ever being denied of what had previously lived. But, you can bet your sweet arse I’ll stay the course. Actual “supply lines”(if altered) tend to forego the the lifelines of Paternalism and Maternalism as in an original economy as unlikened to an incorporated government, economy (Irregardless of it being rural or city, wall street or underground. as their desires are generally mutual)), in which the debt holders eventually prefers to play their part as parent in a web of deceit has been/is worth fighting and dying for. Yep. Been waiting for a new web to be woven. It doesn’t matter as to the label of manufacturer, as the biggest mouth will win-d as their voters will be blown away from within.

  17. Nope. Farming was/is and never will be futile in a fertile field if ya got good seed with loyal farmer willing to weed.

  18. I am really surprised that no one pointed out that the spiritual battle must be won
    first. The Luciferian global oligarchy will not be defeated in our realm until it is defeated in the heavenlies. The book of Ephesians should be required reading for any patriot. When we are “right” with God, then we can act with moral authority in the physical realm at the time of the Holy Spirit’s choosing, with power!
