Aftermath

no-matter-what

Three pieces:

If Trump Loses

Are You Ready for Four Years of Ball-Busting? (H/t both from ColdFury, whose take you should read as well)

From over the transom by someone I trust:

We shall see after tomorrow. Once the election ends, if Comey then does NOT go public with the evidence of the Clinton Foundation evils, then I see no point in having an FBI or an FBI Director. Abolish the federal law enforcement function except for counterfeiting, piracy, and treason (as Constitution says).

If things get sporty whether we want them to or not, there is one alternative endstate, which involves the state legislatures reining in the Feds on paper via Article V amendments. Yes, I know, it sounds pie-in-the-sky, but if you break it down and examine the process then it appears possible. After all, sporty times MUST have some sort of endstate beyond anarchy, balkanization, or Feds changing behavior out of fear. Anarchy = power vacuum = evil interests ride to the rescue in the form of strong-man (i.e. centralized) government. Balkanization = vast potential for same problem with centralized government, just redistributed across fewer states. Feds in fear = resentment of We The People continues = never-ending war on We The People like we have today. Article V is not a Constitutional Convention, it is the process of creating a series of targeted Amendments, and does not wholesale rewrite the Constitution. Fears of a runaway Convention a la Bracken are false in an Article V context AS LONG AS the state governments pass state-level acts to keep delegates on a short leash (such as Florida; they passed an Art V Delegates act in 2014 which is very restrictive on what delegates can do).

I don’t mean to bang this drum as, “here is teh fix to all our hopes and fears. Welcome to Utopia!” But, sporty time must lead SOMEWHERE. Congress cannot directly stop or prevent the Article V process. Nor can governors or President. Do these one at a time: Amend the Constitution first to provide for term limits, next to put the Senate back in the hands of the state legislatures, next to repeal the 26th Amendment and let states set voting ages at a higher, more mature, more responsible age. Then, do other Amendments (abolish birthright citizenship and replace it with “minimum one parent is US Citizen,” reword interstate commerce clause to prevent federal regulation of all goods and services, slam door shut on immigration for 30 years, etc. Then, after feds understand their smaller & more limited role and adjust their size/scope/budget accordingly, the states can repeal the amendment allowing federal income tax (perhaps that one comes earlier, i dunno, but it is easier to justify a gigantic limit on Feds ability to fund itself after its scope and role is dramatically diminished on paper).

This will not make the Feds turn Good right away of course, but it will start a change to the national character to stop looking to the God-Emperor of the Federal Government to cure their hemorrhoids and bless their crops. Government will not change unless national character changes from rewarding irresponsibility with dependency and security to rewarding individualism, initiative, judgment, creativity, and responsibility. Change the national character, which leads to change the expectations of government, which ultimately (multi-generationally) changes the government. One Amendment at at time, so there is no horse-trading across amendments and so each success is seen as just that much more motivating for moving ot the next.

I am not pollyanna, but sporty times must not be an end unto themselves (not accusing you of that, but many others see nothing beyond violence for its own sake). And it is much easier to put a bayonet (metaphorically speaking) to the throat of a state representative or state senator and tell them to cut Congress’s throat than to convince a Senator to do the same to himself. Even if blocs of states split off on their own, they must have some mechanism of working together, and their natural inclination will be to replicate a federal government over themselves simply because that is the only paradigm they know (kinda like replacing a bloodthirsty tyrannical King with …. another King!).

  1. For most of the 19th century, there were less than a dozen Federal crimes. The only Federal law enforcement was the U.S. Marshals, who had very limited responsibilities, and weren’t too popular even so….Maybe the US could return to those halcyon days?!

  2. If Hillary wins there will be purges . These will not be polite or without bloodshed . The method of choice will are already seeing is access to medical , currency manipulation and the ultimate ace for all tyrants is starvation . FEMA already has the industrial scale incinerators ready to go.

  3. will the neo-con/cuck snake-oil never end? The State Legislatures/governments are as rotten with corruption as the Federal Legislature/government…and just as dependent on Central Bank Jewbucks. Article V? When Mark Levin and his gang get done “revising” the Constitution and BOR, it’d look like an amalgam of the Talmud and the Communist Manifesto. No thanks.

    today is, incidentally, the first election I have boycotted since 1976. And it feels good. Next time I do vote, it’ll be with a lead ballot. And that feels good too.

    • Like was said yesterday, son, get to it, your fog horn soup coolers are once again overloading you dumb ass.

      Most days I’m tolerant, not today, this day is too important for sick fucks like you to be spinning tour visceral hating. Cop a squat at the back of the bus for a change.

    • So you admit to voting for 40 years when it made no difference and now refuse when it might? You have no standing . FOAD.

  4. “After all, sporty times MUST have some sort of endstate beyond anarchy, balkanization, or Feds changing behavior out of fear.”

    It’s hard to imagine a more pathetic statement. The author wants to give up without honest consideration, all the most viable solutions in favor of “more of the same-old, same-old”.

  5. I like this constructive train of thought. Gonna print it, study it, put a copy in the important docs file, and … Stay Frosty, everyone.

  6. I offer as a counter, this article:
    http://strike-the-root.com/its-better-to-lose-election-than-to-win

    Maybe we gun owners will have to move beyond the usual chest-thumping and actually have to demonstrate we won’t be fucked with. We get to see what we are made of. I suspect it won’t go well for the prohibitionists.

  7. If Trump loses, he becomes a refugee.

    • Beagle,

      I suggest you worry about your Royal family and keep your limey nose out of fUSA issues. I’d think you’d be more concerned with the Brexit bullshit than to constantly stick your nose where it doesn’t belong.

      In the meantime….fuck the Queen !

  8. Forget about Comey doing the right thing, before, after, or ever. The dude was a……lawyer. Never worked in the FBI, so obviously was never an agent, special or otherwise. Knows zip, nada, kloom regarding investigations and how they work. I mean, they never checked out the home they live in? Really? And on and on…….
    A total and complete POS.

  9. outlawpatriot

    I really appreciate the view of your trusted friend. More or less came to the same view a while back. While I would have great reservations with an Article V convention, it is constitutional. And while a state like Florida understands the gravity of the gig, there are others that won’t. That is the danger. But if it could happen correctly, and proper amendments were the result (there are many to choose from), the impact could be far-reaching and go a long way to correcting a great many ills.

    As for anarchy being a power vacuum? Nah. Anarchy is just fucking stupid.🙂

    • colddeadhandsdays

      I live in Florida as well. You know the demographics of the state. Do you really think it’s feasible?

      • Having a convention now is like a big Thanksgiving diner with all your family. Yes your cool uncle and his hot wife are at the table but so is your great aunt who has dementia and your cousins two retarded fat kids, who lick their plates and drink out of the gravy bowl.

        Thanksgiving is at my house this year for my family. It means we have to spend a day or two cleaning up the mess we have left out for months because we were too busy doing life stuff.

        We got a house to clean before we talk about having a convention.

        • Exactly. I have been advocating the “house cleaning” for a long time BEFORE ANY kind of “constitutional” convention. And I don’t GARA what Mark Levin and his sycophant Alexander Hamilton bootlickers say. 100 Million brainwashed socialist/commies need to be “dealt with” or it’s NOT going to be successful regardless of the “type” of convention you invoke.

          What happens after the coming unpleasantness depends on who WINS. If FREEFOR and all the Alexander Hamilton sycophant quislings LOSE the coming unpleasnatness and the “Marxists” win, you’re NOT getting any fucking convention. You HAVE to win the unpleasantness and that’s not gonna be done using the losing strategy of “hearts and minds” employed by U.S. SOF since 1966.

          • I suspect the number is closer to 200 million, but who’s really gonna count? As long as millions and millions disappear from the welfare roles…

      • outlawpatriot

        Yeah, I know the demographics. I live I n Palm Beach county. Blue as can be. But where my safe place is? American and Gadsden flags fly. Minority individuals are few. The primary cultures are bikers and redneck mudders. We are one of only a couple states with no income tax. My county is even presently working to eliminate property taxes. And as far as gun laws, Castle Doctrine and such? We are in the top half dozen. Add to that, Florida is generally recognized as one of the best run states in the country.

        And why? Mostly the north half of the state. The Crackers, rednecks, bikers and gun people.

        Yeah, I think it’s feasible.🙂

        • The north half of the state will pretty much have to “reform” the southern halF….

          Kinda ironic… but every state will have those dichotomies, urban\rural/

          I’m heavily touting rural.

          Love ya, you capsicum snortin’, pistol shootin’ sumbeetch!

  10. Might be worth noting that this same same voice of reason would have been warning, pre-Martin Luther’s 95 Theses that absent our (Clerical) leaders’ Divine interpretation of Scripture, we’d descend into uncharted anarchic territory. And that the void in “Guidance” would be a vacuum filled with “evil interests”.

    That said, I’d settle for a nationwide referendum on individual declarations of Independence, adopting the original Articles of Confederation and incorporating Royce’s liberty amendments.

  11. colddeadhandsdays

    I’d like to think we could get the states back but the same demographics that got us here on the national level exist in the states. I just don’t see a way forward without a lot of blood and if Hillary gets in the black lives matter illegals some Somalis, Syrians, feds whoever are going to start it. they will start coming after us and then we will start killing them and I will be the bloodiest slaughter that’s ever existed. This country will be wiped from the face of the earth. And look at yourself in the mirror as I will look at myself because it’s our fault we let this happen. Own it “patriots”. We should’ve acted before came to this. We should’ve marched on Washington and pulled the motherfuckers out and hung them. We should’ve done the same thing at the state level but everyone was too worried about the fucking pensions in their lives when I’m reality all of that is gone anyway. I would’ve gone. If I saw movement unfolding with real experienced leaders I would’ve gone and done something in righteousness to save this country. So now it’s about to be all gone if Hillary gets in.

    • “So now it’s about to be all gone if Hillary gets in.”

      Now, now… that incompetent, palsied, drunken, murdering perv couldn’t avoid fucking up if she had Humaweiner, Bill and Pederasta as her “spritrual” advisors.

      Hillary, The Bitch?

      Noooo…. KARMA is THE BITCH.

      Inexorable, just and fair.

      Be of Good Cheer, and expect to witness Justice of Biblical proportions.

  12. “Whatever happens Tuesday, Trump has made history and has forever changed American politics.
    Though a novice in politics, he captured the party of Lincoln with the largest turnout of primary voters ever, and he has inflicted wounds on the nation’s ruling class from which it may not soon recover.
    Bush I and II, Mitt Romney, the neocons and the GOP commentariat all denounced Trump as morally and temperamentally unfit. Yet, seven of eight Republicans are voting for Trump, and he drew the largest and most enthusiastic crowds of any GOP nominee.
    Not only did he rout the Republican elites, he ash-canned their agenda and repudiated the wars into which they plunged the country.
    Trump did not create the forces that propelled his candidacy, but he recognized them, tapped into them and unleashed a gusher of nationalism and populism that will not soon dissipate.
    Whatever happens Tuesday, there is no going back now.”

    My point being:1. the grass roots support that is essential for any restoration of any liberties and limiting the Feral Gov. is there and increasing.
    2. don’t get so out in front of your troops (people) that you lose touch with them. (that is not to say that leaders mustn’t be out in front and that it is a dangerous bur necessary place to be).
    Trump has done us all a big favor in attacking the Elitist NWO ProgreSSives
    but the troops will have to carry the day.

  13. All for an Article V if that’s all we got left. But here is my question….The Ferals in DC don’t abide by the Law as it is, why would they abide by anything that became of an Article V Convention?

    Unless the 30-some governors were willing to mobilize their respective Guards, I see no realistic scenario where the Ferals don’t laugh it all off.

    • The Feds want a veneer of “Constitutionalism” to sucker the patriotic Americans into obedience. For example: Kinda hard for a Senator to run for a third term when an Amendment says he is limited to two, without his party openly admitting “Fuck the Constitution.” It has worked for the Presidency.

    • Exactly. They won’t.

      Because they know…

      A republic… if you can keep it.

      How to keep it?

      By watering that tree with the blood of PATRIOTS and tyrants.

      Guess which one is the hard part?

      There is absolutely nothing that you can put on a piece of paper that will be self-enforcing. Those dead old white guys knew that, whether it was the Articles of Confederation, or the Constitution. Both WERE/ARE people POWERED.

      More Wrath than Terror, has seized me. I am very mad. The gloomy Cowardice of the Times, is intollerable in N. England.

      Indeed I feel not a little out of Humour, from Indisposition of Body. You know, I cannot pass a Spring, or fall, without an ill Turn — and I have had one these four or five Weeks — a Cold, as usual. Warm Weather, and a little Exercise, with a little Medicine, I suppose will cure me as usual. I am not confined, but moap about and drudge as usual, like a Gally Slave. I am a Fool if ever there was one to be such a Slave. I wont be much longer. I will be more free, in some World or other.

      Is it not intollerable, that the opening Spring, which I should enjoy with my Wife and Children upon my little Farm, should pass away, and laugh at me, for labouring, Day after Day, and Month after Month, in a Conclave, Where neither Taste, nor Fancy, nor Reason, nor Passion, nor Appetite can be gratified?

      Posterity! You will never know, how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.

      Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

      The united States of America is finished as we once knew it. Kaput. Dead. Gone. It’s not even on life support. It has been replaced by something completely foreign. They have replaced it with a new body, stamped with a happy face on the outside, on the inside, full of tyranny.

      Why? Because no one wanted to keep it. Why? Because blood. Their own. Because… life is so dear, and peace is so sweet, so as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery.

      They warned us over and over that they were not the end. That it would take eternal vigilance and blood to keep it. And it has fallen on deaf ears.

      Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results. And here we are again. Hanging our HOPES on Trump. He is not going to hand anyone a golden platter over-filled with freedom and liberty. At best… or worst… he’ll temporarily slow down that boot, lightly touching your nose, from making complete contact. It’s coming whether we like it or not. The question is, which side has the most blood to give to the Tree?

      The other question is…

      If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed;
      if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may
      come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

      We, or our grandchildren, are going to find out. My honest opinion… there will be no fight for restoration of anything. It will be a fight of survival, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves..

      But then, this is not anything that has not been said since the beginning.

      Sorry to be such a… downer.😉

    • Article V convention is so poorly defined it is guaranteed to be abused. After the liberals rig the votes (Soros could literally buy the votes needed) you’re stuck with the result. Progs then able to say, “You must now obey!”

  15. “Government will not change unless national character changes from rewarding irresponsibility with dependency and security to rewarding individualism, initiative, judgment, creativity, and responsibility.”

    National character will not change unless individual character changes. Individual character will not change unless people realize that they are hopeless sinners in desperate need of a Savior. As long as people feel that they are “worthy” or “deserving” of anything, there is no hope. To quote the late E. C. Moore… “You ain’t “worth” the gunpowder it would take to blow you into hell.” If you think you are, you will find out that you are the problem. A fundamental alteration in personal (then national) self-esteem is what is required.

    Romans 3:23… “For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

    Titus 3:4-7… “BUT AFTER THAT the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, NOT by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to HIS mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior; That being justified by HIS grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

    Got Christ?

    Amazing how things look from the other side of that chasm. Mankind is a remarkably pathetic and self righteous critter. His aftermath is not pretty no matter the results of these electoral shenanigans. Envisioning the larger picture is of great solace and most highly recommended.

    • ” Individual character will not change unless people realize that they are hopeless sinners in desperate need of a Savior.”

      Yep, you just had to resort to that religocollectivist garbage, didn’t you?

      Well guess what, I have morality, ethics and principles and I’m neither one of your ‘sinners’ or one of your ‘sheep’! I’m a Neo-Pagan Witch who operates from a Voluntarist/Anarchist principle of full self ownership that full respects others to own themselves and their Liberty and Property…also doesn’t hurt that I pack a Fn-Fal too. And no we Witches and Neo-Pagans don’t ‘worship the devil’ (or even have a devil)..that’s a moldy bag that monotheists seem to like carrying around endlessly (or as Michael Ansara in the character of Kang the Klingon replied when Capt. Kirk told him to ‘go to the devil’ Kang replied, “We have no devil, Kirk. But we understand the habits of yours.”).

      You’re welcome to believe what you want, just as I and 4 billion other human beings have the right to do. Where it becomes a problem is when you ascribe a imaginary failing to other individuals beyond yourself. My belief and system of faith makes no such demands or requirements and I operate from a basis of Free Will (as the group RUSH beautifully set forth):

      You can choose a ready guide
      In some celestial voice
      If you choose not to decide
      You still have made a choice
      You can choose from phantom fears
      And kindness that can kill
      I will choose a path that’s clear
      I will choose free will

      I wish you and yours well with no ill will but I will never worship as you do
      or change my religion for yours.

      Peace be between us, leave the fighting to be done against our enemies led by the likes of the hildabeast, sorros and obama bin lyin and other such narcissistic sociopathic ilk.

      • MichiganderJim

        There it is. Comment of the Year maybe. A mighty good way to spot friend from foe as well—either that’s enough or it’s not.

        • “…either that’s enough or it’s not.”

          What if it’s not?

          Either that’s a lot of horse hockey, or it’s a lot of bullshit.

          Bullshit of the Millennium. Kinda like Obambi’s “Peace Prize.”

      • Religocollectivist garbage… interesting concoction there. I’m not a religionist, as a matter of fact I despise religion. (You are a religionist by your own words.) I’m not a collectivist, as a matter of fact I despise collectivism. You’ve not been paying attention.

        “Well guess what, I have morality, ethics and principles…”

        Of course you do.

        “I’m a Neo-Pagan Witch who operates from a Voluntarist/Anarchist principle of full self ownership…”

        Of course you are.

        “My belief and system of faith makes no such demands or requirements and I operate from a basis of Free Will …”

        Of course it does.

        “I wish you and yours well with no ill will but I will never worship as you do
        or change my religion for yours.”

        Of course you won’t.

        As everything is all about you… of course.

        To me that’s horribly sad but nothing I don’t see all too often. It is the reason we are where we are.

        “Where it becomes a problem is when you ascribe a imaginary failing to other individuals beyond yourself.”

        The real problem is, it’s not me that is doing the ascribing. My opinion is as meaningless as your own when it comes to what either IS or IS NOT. I simply relate the information I (along with anyone who wants it) have been given. You are a created being (whether you choose to admit it or not) and as such are therefore accountable to your Creator well before you are accountable to yourself or anyone else.

        Romans 1:20… “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”

        “And no we Witches and Neo-Pagans don’t ‘worship the devil…’”

        Actually, if you are not worshiping the Creator (Jesus Christ – Col 1:16), you are worshiping the devil; again, whether you choose to acknowledge such or not. You go ahead and quote me Star Trek (created by 33’rd degree “free”mason Gene Roddenberry) and those brilliant rock stars calling themselves Rush… I’ll stick with the Words our Creator wrote specifically to us.

        I certainly wish you well and wish I could say something to get you to think more deeply into these things. Forgive me in advance as I will likely keep trying.

        In liberty, through truth…
        Ted Lindblad 3

        Galatians 5:1… “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”

      • “I will choose free will”

        Ironically, for your position, that is one of the supreme central tenets of the Christian faith: salvation unto eternal life by acceptance of, and Faith in, the redemption of all Sin by Christ’s death and resurrection… but only by the freely chosen confession of Sin and acceptance of the Grace and Mercy of The Savior.

        God forces salvation upon no one.

        Where’s the problem?

        Witches seek to manipulate the Universe to their own benefit through their own actions. We call that “works,” and understand that Man as a flawed being is un-redeemable by his own efforts, skill, knowledge, law, incantations, ceremonies, rituals, works… but by the Love, Grace and Mercy of God the Creator and our free acceptance of the same.

        Most neopagans/witches in my experience are those who have been ill informed, mistreated, slighted or, by observation, have been prejudiced by the actions of preachers or other nominal “christians” in some way.

        Please realize that Christians are still only human and all are imperfect in their attempt to walk in the Way of Christ. Many are self proclaimed, lacking Salvation or understanding, and many there are who are complete hypocrites or outright charlatans having little, if any, comprehension or calling to declare the Word of God.

        Condemnation is of satan. That is one good way to discern the difference.

        Christianity and the Word of God are hated, feared and persecuted by their enemies, notably Islam, modern globalist Judaism and the secularist/progressive/libertine/political… pardon the redundancy. One is known by one’s enemies, and I’m certain those are your enemies as well.

        Believe me when I say that, if witches/pagans oppose those in the name of religious liberty?

        You’re next.

  16. “… Feds in fear = resentment of We The People continues = never-ending war on We The People like we have today. …” — from the respected source

    Counter argument —

    ““When the people fear the government, that’s tyranny; when the government fears the people, that’s freedom.” — Jefferson

    The be-wigged ones who scrawled on that parchment never said it was going to be easy. They knew then that there would always be forces at work against The People. There always has been. It is up to the The People to instil fear first, respect afterwards. If one does not think it works, go watch Muslims use that very tactic against the State.

    If only Catholics would dust off the Iron Maidens….

    • Can you explain how you can have a Government which is not feared by the people?

      • We had one for 150 years.

      • Easy….My ideal government would be so powerless it couldn’t possibly instill fear. No taxation(pay as you go only), volunteer militia(controlled locally), No regulation for a federal government except organization regulation between states and other countries. No need for a federal army or federal police force. No need for fear or intimidation.

        example:
        Do you require a policeman to keep you in line at the checkout in the grocery store? Or do you push people out of the way so you can be first?

        Neither would the states, the people, or other countries. The organization would be mutually beneficial.

        I rest my case.

        • And if we all one culture or the very least had the same views on Liberty well then that might work but have to kill off a lot of people before that’s feasible…

          • MichiganderJim

            Why? You don’t need to have others have the same view of liberty as you do; you just need to have them not stop you from having yours. And they don’t, mostly. You can gripe that their actions lead to you having less freedom, like voting maybe, but it’s still only the guns that are actually forcing you to do anything. Hopefully soon there won’t be so many of those, or maybe Trump will quadruple them…either way it’s nobody’s view of liberty that’s causing any problem; it’s the hired guns to enforce it.

            • That is so typical of you, Jim.

              “Oh! if only….. everyone could see how right I am!!”

              “Hopefully soon there won’t be so many of those {guns… srsly?}, or maybe Trump will quadruple them…either way it’s nobody’s view of liberty that’s causing any problem; it’s the hired guns to enforce it.”

              Well, to use your now discarded “Duh!” (or is it “Doh!”?)

              Very few folks are using guns to enforce ANY! “view of Liberty” whatsoever!!! you insufferable diatribalist. And, notably, it’s folks interested in any reasonable definition of Liberty who have been shoved by force into considering, with great deliberation, the counter use of force.

              Who will stop The Other from using guns to impose their will upon the Dissenters O’ Liberty?

              Me? You? A couple other Jimklein sycophants, at last count, all three of them? Oh, but let us eschew, at all costs (even the loss of “Individuality!”) not to mention actual Liberty, the taint of “collectivism.”

              This is one of your worst attempts ever. So full of holes and, y’know, utter drivel, that it would have to be parsed word for word. But that should be reserved for something more worthy.

              Cleverness (?) in the service of the lowest common denominator of humanity, ego, is a terrible waste of intellect such as you imagine it.

              Ego is the devil’s playground. Stop being his bitch.

              • He is irrelevant 06 so I don’t pay any attention to him anymore… I hope you are doing well Brother and many thanks for all your prayers…

                • lineman,

                  “He is irrelevant….”

                  That is good advice. I should heed it as well. Hope all is well with you.

                  Go Trump….45th POTUS !

              • ’06,

                Great and applicable response to Klein. However, you do know you’re only wasting bandwidth on that clown ?

                I do hope this finds you well.

  17. “Fears of a runaway Convention a la Bracken are false in an Article V context AS LONG AS the state governments pass state-level acts to keep delegates on a short leash..”
    As long as..
    Delusion.
    Bracken is right. The author of this piece is, in my opinion, not discerning the depth and saturation level of the Evil we face.
    WAKE UP

  18. Read your Bracken as to CONcon. More stalling. We are not voting our way out of this includes a convention, just my opinion some old guy up in the woods.

    Time to chop a lot of kindling is now, why? Because it will be freakin cold in January.

  19. It’s over.

  20. I thought it obvious, all we want is a return to the Constitutional principles this nation was founded on. This ain’t fucking rocket science.

  21. anarchy = power vacuum

    The absence of that centralized power is called “liberty”. Most human beings want to be slaves, and rush to reinstall a slavemaster. These human beings are your enemies. Fighting would-be slavemasters is never-ending, and requires eternal vigilance. Anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to enslave you.

  22. Really Charlie Brown???

    “Anarchy = power vacuum”

    Bzzzztt, there’s the false premise. Anarchy equals whatever sort and level of power the participants choose. Will it be enough against those who seek to loot and pillage? Nobody knows. Why, is it now?

  24. A halfway measure to reduce the impact of corruption (not to change human nature) is to reduce the centralization of wealth in WA-DC. If the Treasury was restricted in making/obtaining “money”, and had to issue bonds or print “Greenbacks” (unbacked fiat currency) to supply the Congress, without the aid of a National Bank #3 (Federal Reserve Bank), Congress might be restricted to essential funding and honoraria. Under-funded and without much authority, lacking police/military powers, is how we need the central governments to be. 9 robed tyrants should not be able to impose the cost or distraction of “rights” for special people, guaranteed by the restriction of the slush-pork of Fed funding (highways, welfare, Fusion Centers, etc.). If there is a need for force, it should come from the Counties and be controlled by Governors.

    Local corruption is much better than centralized national gov corruption. Local people know where the pigs live and can fix them (and their families) if the feeding becomes too expensive or they run wild.

  25. DWEEZIL THE WEASEL

    In defeat, defiance. Choose your weapons/methods. Bleib ubrig.

  26. Hitler was once thought to be unstoppable………….

    Death stalks us all, it’s just a question of how and when.

    How, will be measured only by the manner of your resistance, your honor, your courage, and the degree to which it inflicts maximum damage on the enemies of mankind.

    When?

    Soon.

    Reblogged this on ETC., ETC., & ETC..

  28. Read Publius Huldah’s take on Article V convention.
    Too much can be changed,and the other team gets a voice and the opportunity to make changes.
    Not a good plan. There are other methods of changing/reducing fedgov power.
    Start by reining in agencies like the EPA,USFS,USFWS,and BLM so they have no say in land use policies other than that which is approved by congress.
    As it is now-they write their own rules/regs,and the enviro and animal “rights” groups use “sue and settle”.
    They sue whatever agency,then that agency enacts whatever policies the enviro nazis/animal “rights” whackos want enacted.
    The latest nonsense is that plowed farm fields are “mini mountain ranges”-these douchebags need to be stopped and quickly-or next thing you know-the puddles in your back yard will be classified as wetlands and you won’t be able to use your back yard.

    • 3/4 of states must ratify an Amendment before it takes force. Doing the math, that means only 13 states can stop any Amendment that is beyond the scope of what they find acceptable. If anybody has a plan to reduce the size and scope of Federal power which does NOT include mass slaughter of millions of people who live within the USA, let’s hear it.
