The 1st Amendment.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peacefully assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

“Congress shall make no law respecting [showing partiallity] an establishment of religion , or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” Yes we do have the right in America to exercise our religion but the churches have been conned into accepting the governments seal of approval.  The 501 (c) 3 tax exemption. Should we blame the government for this one. I don’t think so. They are opportunists and took advantage of the ignorant. I think we should blame the churches and pastors who took part and the congregations that enable them to continue. Why is it so hard to get people to give to the churches if they can’t deduct it off their taxes at the end of the year? Personally I wonder why they give to these modern churches at all, but that is me.
When the church accepts the 501 (c) 3 they are then under government regulation. I thought “Christian” churches were suppose to be under Christ. Oh well, can’t deduct the dollars if you follow Christ. And we know the all mighty debt, I mean dollar, is god.

“…or abridging the freedom of speech…” Do we still have freedom of speech in America? Yes we do, that is if you can find the posted  free speech zones. You know, the ones they move in the distance so noone you want to hear you, mainly politicians, ever will.  And not just the politicians, but their fawning entourage. Heaven forbid these people should see maybe their favorite overlord to be, or is, is corrupt or unsupportive of their rights. That this jewel is in fact a common stone.
There is this sad pretence in the once “Land of the free and home of the brave” that nothing has altered since its inception. Nothing could be farther from the truth. But we must maintain this pretense to keep the people from really revolting against this unjust regime of totalitarianism that is sweeping this country. So occaisionally we show the protesters and pretend that these are just a bunch of spoiled malcontents that didn’t get their way on some small issue. Then we can all just go back to life as usual. Yawn.

“…or of the press…” This is a good one. The press has abridged itself. Most of the media is owned by certain major corporations who refuse to print or report the truth and the people refuse to take the time required to seek out the ones who do tell the truth. And for the most part they only want their news in sound bites. Complacency is destroying America. But those who lie to us have the freedom to do so. And they are usually the ones who teach us to ridicule the ones who would tell us the truth. We are trained so well.

“…or the right of the people to peacefully assemble…” Ok, this one went the way of the dodo bird the first time someone applied for that permit to assemble.  You know, there always has to be that first person to comply. Well yeah, there is that first law Enforcement officer who goes along too. And I bet both thought they were great Americans who played by the rules. They probably never saw themselves as the ones breaking them.

“…and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances,”  As long as you can afford a lawyer you still have this right too.

Charleston, S.C. ; Oldest Knights Templar Commandery in U.S.

From Charleston, SC. SC commandery No.1 1780

This first link takes you to an older document covering the by laws and officers. This is a masonic webpage. Very interesting. The Charleston History link on the page takes you to a lot of masonic history of the area. There are other older documents on the site.

This comes from the Phoenix Masonic webpage. The biographical snippets say a lot.The preface to the book was written by Harry S. Truman so it is old.

What can we expect from our new sheriff ?

This is a copy of the letter I had published in the Chronicle Independent out of Camden, SC on Jan. 12, 2011

I recently came across the following statement, “The Law in the U.S. requires three elements to be present in any crime: the Act, Intent and Damage (MENS REA – willful intent, ACTUS REUS – act or crime, CORPUS DELICTI – body of the crime, the actual damage). It is estimated that 90% of the people prosecuted by the courts in the U.S. committed no crime.” That is a very powerful statement. Basically what it is saying is that most people in prison today are there because we simply refused to accept their behavior. It has become the norm in America to pass laws to remove from among us those who we have decided are morally inferior to us. Imagine Heaven if God used the same yardstick to measure us. It would be an empty place.

But that aside, we recently have sworn in a new Sheriff in Kershaw county, and this man took an oath to defend our Constitutional rights. Question is, will he ? Does he know what our rights are ? Does he care ?

In a recent interview Sheriff Matthews said he wanted to work with Federal agents in Kershaw county. That is fine as long as they are complying with their given Constitutional duties, which are matters dealing with treason, felonies committed on the high seas and counterfeiting. These are the only three law enforcement duties given to the Federal government.

He also said he wished to increase sobriety check points. Can we all say “Papers please”. I know there are those who think this is a good thing but statistics have proven that roving patrols garner the greatest number of drunk drivers. (I would refer back to my earlier statement of moral inferiority but the concept would offend most who feel they hold the moral highground.) It is also a blatant disreguard for the 4th, 5th, 6th and 9th Amendment rights of those stopped.

I am sure there are those who feel I should be willing to give up my rights for the greater good, but I prefer to hold on to my rights and not have to fear being accosted by the kings officers. Officers, I might add, who can become judge, jury and executioner right on the spot. They only have to perceive a threat to themselves where one exists or not.

I would like to end with a quote from Richard Mack. He was the Arizona Sheriff who questioned the constitutionality of the Brady Bill, Mack v. The United States, and on June 27,1997 the Supreme Court ruled in his favor.  When the question was put to him about people asking their local Sheriff for assistance when the IRS shows up to take property without due process his reply was, “He’s going to tell you to get a lawyer. And I’m telling you that is absolutely an abuse of his duty. It’s his job to protect you and now you are going to spend the next five to ten years defending something that shouldn’t be happening in the first place. And that sheriff’s going to put his boots up on his desk and go,’ Boy howdy, I sure wish we could help people like that, but we’re too busy writing tickets and catching  drug dealers.’ ”

Leadership v. Representation.

It has really come to a sad state in this country when the people think they need leadership and not representation. What are the people wanting to be led to ?  When someone is elected in this country they are suppose to represent us, do our bidding and have our interests in mind. It has come to the point where the people want someone to tell them what to do. They have been taught not to think for themselves. They have lost their rights and think it is for the best because some stranger  put into an office tells them it is. It is time to wake up and think for yourselves !!

The people have managed to give up their property rights because they have been led to believe it is for the best to be taxed and if that tax cannot be paid it is for the best for the ‘leadership’ to toss them out and take what they have worked hard for all their lives. They have given up the right to say what is best for their own children because their ‘leaders’ tell them they do not know what is best. They have given up their right to keep their wealth because they have allowed their ‘leadership’ to install a banking system that robs them of any future they may have.They have given up their right to freedom because the ‘leadership’ has chosen what is acceptable behavior. And always, it is for the best.

It is time to tell the ‘leadership’ to stop leading and to start representing. It is time for the people to take responsibility for their own lives and futures. Don’t let the ‘leadership’ tell you how you should live, tell them they should start ‘represnting’ the people who put them in office. Otherwise…well, otherwise you do deserve to lose your property, wealth, freedom and children because the ‘leadership’ is right.

But hey, that is OK , because one day you will get your rights back. You just have to pay the licensing fee to do so.


The 4th Amendment

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrents shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

It is easy to see how the 4th Amendment has repeatedly been violated on a daily basis if one just takes the time to understand what it is they are reading. People are no longer secure. We have allowed ourselves and our neighbors to be violated. “

Probable cause” was never intended to be used by law enforcement as a catch-all to take away our rights. It meant that if there was an injured party that party could go to the authorities and swear out a complaint. At that point a Warrant would be issued on behalf of the injured party. The State was never intended to be the complainant. That is just a created fiction used by law enforcement to deprive you of your rights. Next time you see the State as the victum ask the officer, or prosecutor or judge to define “The State”. Unless they are personally injured  and ALL sign a complaint the body collective  cannot be the complaintant. And real estate cannot be a complainant.

This also limits law enforcement to searches of only what is mentioned  in the Warrant. They are given no easement to search what is not covered in the Warrant. The Warrant must be specific. And anything NOT covered in the Warrant cannot be seized.

The term “confidential informant” is also a ruse used by law enforcement as an end run around not only the 4th Amendment but the 6th as well. […to be confronted with the witnesses against him…]. It is an easy thing to let law enforcement convince you that it is all for the greater good but once a right is taken away you will never get it back.

One curious thing I have noticed about the 4th Amendment is that the search of the person is missing. I believe the founders never intended for the person to be searched. I can only imagine what the colonists suffered at the hands of the Kings officers and believe they wanted to preserve the dignity of the people.

I think it is not only time to hold our elected representatives accountable but ourselves as well. Read the founding documents and understand what it is the founders gave you. Do it now before it is too late. If it isn’t already.


The 5th Amendment

“nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, orproperty, without due processof law; nor shall private property be be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

I have chosen at this time to only touch on certain aspects of the 5th Amendment. Mainly those that are violated on a daily basis. “…nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself…”  “Papers please..” I have yet to see the except clause in the 5th Amendment. Any time you are engaged by an officer there is a good chance anything you say to him will be used in a court of law. ANYTHING.You are under NO obligation to answer a single question. And in Miller v. U.S. the supreme court ruled that “The claim and exercise of a constitutional right cannot be converted into a crime.”  In otherwords, if you chose not to give an officer your name he has NO leeway to make that a crime.

Fingerprints and DNA are also ways to witness against yourself. Yes, you have the right to refuse. And this right cannot be infringed upon by the “State” using the 4th Amendment Warrant as it is protected not only under the 5th but the 9th as well. “The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”.

“…nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…” Gee, that says a mouth full. That means law enforcement cannot take your liberty, you know, toss you in jail, without due process. Due process is that part where an injured party signs a complaint and then you are taken before a jury of your peers and then if, and only if, you are found guilty can you be incarcerated. This also protects your property from being taken. You know, like when an officer unConstitutionally takes you to lock-up and then calls in a tow truck driver to “steal” your car. You have now become deprived of your property. And in order to get your property back you are again deprived of your property…money.

“…nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” Ok, this is a biggie. How many times has your neighbors property been taken because they couldn’t pay taxes. Well, guess what, even if that unConstitutional property tax was Constitutional, that would only allow for the county to deduct what they say you owe in taxes from the value of the property they just took and would owe you the remainder. This in itself would stop the government theft of property.

It is time we start holding our government officals accountable for taking away our rights and stand up for what is right. If you can’t do it at the ballot box do it in the jury box. Jurors have rights too. They have the right to judge the Constitutionality of the law as well as the person on trial.

“Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void of law.” Marbury v. Madison. That means even if the defendent did in fact break the law you could and should find them not guilty because an unConstitutional law cannot exist.


IS IT TIME FOR A NEW DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE ?

“WE  [the people] hold these TRUTHS to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain UNALIENABLE Rights…”These are the rights we are born with, the rights we will die with and the rights NO man can take away.

Is there any difference between what the colonists fought against at the founding of America and what tyranny we face today?

“He has erected a multitude of new Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”  These days we have more Federal and State agencies who create more and more unconstitutional regulations to raise revenues by fines. Most of these regulations are a blatant infringement on private property rights. And the worse abusers of our rights are the local deputies who arrest and jail people without due process.

Article 1, Section 9, Paragraph 3 of the U.S. Constitution states, “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” We are concerned here with the Bills of attainder. This prohibits the passing of laws that  allow officers to jail you or confiscate property without due process. People every day are arrested and jailed without the benefit of a jury determining they are guilty. If an officer is accusing you of a crime it is his duty to take you before a jury and not just throw you in jail. And this prohibits the same officer from confiscating property  without due process, like having you car towed away. That is THEFT of property. And anyone who tows the car and asks for a fee for you to get it back is a party to that theft.  But this is just an example of how the state has found ways to steal from you or eat out your substance.

“He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:”

This would be the standing army or officers that use standing orders such as police or deputies who are told to make arrests for any number of pretended offenses that are not accompanied by a complaint signed by an injured party. These are usually arrests where the “victim” is the State, a contrived victim that is used when no REAL victim is available. It is a scam perpetrated on WE THE PEOPLE.  It is just a way to collect revenue for the state. The state cannot be a victim.

“For protecting them, by mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the inhabitents of these States:”

How often do we hear of officers entering the wrong house and killing the resident who has committed no crime and does not deserve to be executed  for living in the wrong house? These officers commit Murders and generally pay no penalty for their neglegence. And a lot of the time it is because some mysterious “confidential informent” has made some accusation. What happened to the 6th Amendment right to be able to confront ones accusers?  This is just another bogus scapegoat for your local law enforcement.

“For imposing taxes on us without our consent:”

Every day our Federal and State congress pass more and more laws to tax us. These are usually fines and fees and rarely called by what they are…A TAX. And our local governments are now implementing laws that fall in line with U.N. programs to deprive us of our property by raising property taxes to the point noone can afford them or passing so called “Green” laws that put increasingly heavier burdens on us. We are fined for the most ridiculous of reasons. Lands are rezoned to make the values go down while claiming the values have risen and we should pay a higher tax. A tax we should never had been burdened with.

I could continue on but I challenge everyone to read and understand what the colonists faced then and what WE THE PEOPLE face now. STAND UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!
