AMERICA FACES NOT ANNIHILATION…BUT NULLIFICATION…FROM THE VERY PEOPLE COMING HERE TO PARTAKE IN ITS ABUNDANCE OF OPPORTUNITY
America faces its greatest challenge ever. Even the Civil War would have torn her into two, the entire world seems intent on nullifying its very existence. The tragic irony is that even as throngs continue to arrive of their own volition (and in violation of her laws) declarations as to the absence of any compelling cause for her existence grow in number and volume.
Nobody disputes that this is a nation of immigrants. But until recent times America’s immigrants have entered American territory in compliance with her uniquely generous laws governing immigration and naturalization. Until recently those arriving legally (actual “immigrants”) have come with the DESIRE to enter the robust flow of her main river offering in unrivaled breadth and volume opportunities that exist no place else. Immigrants YEARNED to enjoy the equal treatment of America’s laws. To America’s immigrants it would never even have occurred not to RESPECT her laws, HONOR her laws and SUPPORT the CONSTITUTIONAL FRAMEWORK responsible for making America a NATION OF LAW. To immigrants it would never have occurred to NOT learn English and enter the powerful current that drives not only all manner of affairs in America but across the globe. Such a proposition would have seemed to them bizarre…preposterous…downright baffling.
Unlike any country in history…this grand EXPERIMENT in self governance pursued a path of encouraging immigration of those seeking her opportunities and the PROTECTION OF HER LAWS. America would grow strong through this UNIQUE inflow of those eager to leave behind many of the ways of their native lands and contribute to her core foundation. Immigrants came not to TAKE…but to SHARE IN that which was made freely available to them and ADD to America’s diverse pool of people from different heritage and cultural norms. America WORKED because these diverse groups of people all CHOSE TO AGREE upon and SUPPORT NOT ONLY THE CORE VALUES embodied in her institutional foundation, but a UNIVERSAL BODY OF CULTURAL PRACTICES AFFECTING EVERY ASPECT OF AMERICAN LIFE. The very ESSENCE of “America” was DEFINED by its ability to do what the ancient world could not do: bring peoples from all corners of the earth to live peacefully side by side…each bringing with them and retaining certain of their values and practices…but SUBORDINATING THEM TO THE CORE PRINCIPLES ON WHICH WAS BUILT THE FOUNDATION SUPPORTING ITS OPERATIONAL FUNCTIONING. IMMIGRANTS knew that in order for America to OPERATE …the CORE PRINCIPLES of EQUAL TREATMENT UNDER THE LAW, INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS FROM GOVERNMENT INTRUSION AND THE TOLERATION OF THE LAWFUL PRACTICES OF OTHERS SO LONG AS THEY DID NOT INTERFERE WITH THEIR OWN.
ONLY here…in all of human history…was such a venture even CONCEIVED let alone proposed, pursued and against all odds BORN FROM NOTHING by TAKING ITS INDEPENDENCE BY FORCE FROM A MIGHTY POWER OVERSEAS THAT SOUGHT NOT TO GOVERN BUT TO RULE. Against all odds…it ACHIEVED THE IMPOSSIBLE…and to this day the ONLY NATION OF ITS KIND. The ONLY NATION that BROKE FREE from the BONDS OF THE OLD WORLD BY FORCE in order that it may guide its own affairs. A document of UNUSUAL BRILLIANCE was drafted and adopted to serve as the “instruction manual” for an EXPERIMENT. FAR from perfect…and falling far short of the ideals expressed in that documents…America was LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF THE REST OF THE WORLD WHICH HAD ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY TO OCCUPY THE STATUS THAT AMERICA CREATED OVERNIGHT. America grew strong beyond imagination. Her successful break from foreign rule, her drive, her innovation made possible by a LACK of the customs and traditions and absolute rule of the old world, her wealth, her power and the threat she posed to their ancient leadership structure that benefited the few to the exclusion of nearly all. Title and lands were not handed not by bloodline and the entitlement of a privileged few in a FIXED SOCIAL STRUCTURE THAT DENIED (IN FACT CRUSHED) ALL OPPORTUNITY of upward mobility. The ancient world had changed virtually not at all…since ancient times.
While largely incomprehensible to Americans…from Russia to France to Spain and Italy and across all of Europe the “anarchist” movement was the ONLY AVENUE FOR CHANGE LEFT AVAILABLE BY EUROPE’S TINY FAMILY OF ELITES WHO RULED WITH UNLIMITED POWER AND FREE FROM ACCOUNTABILITY. Such conditions provided the perfect environment for the emergence of monsters. Such conditions did not disappoint…as from those fertile grounds AROSE MONSTERS. The merciless and lawless tyrants had no motivation to loosen their grip on power and wealth. While not in name…the countless peasants, serfs and indentured workers existed as SLAVES enjoying NO LEGAL PROTECTIONS from the arbitrary actions of their rulers…those enforcing the “laws,” those with ANY degree of authority or social advantage over the ones below them which they could dominate without limit and accountability. Only the patronage of a “higher up” could provide any protection. In that respect the “owner” to whom the party was obligated entirely simply occupied a higher rung on the permanently and fiercely defended ladder.
While not up to the standards of modern values and practices and plagued by arguably the single greatest institutional crime against any people, America’s STARTING place was far beyond anything that the ancient world had achieved. It’s government was UNIQUE IN ALL OF HISTORY. It was a NEW CONTRACT WITH A PEOPLE WHO WERE NOT RULED NOR GOVERNED BY AN EXISTING LEADERSHIP STRUCTURE. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEGOTIATED AND ADOPTED THE SUPREME LEGAL DOCUMENT THAT WOULD BIND AND BEND TO ACCOMODATE PEACEFUL CHANGE AND SOCIAL PROGRESS IN PURSUIT OF THE LOFTY IDEALS SET FORTH IN THAT DOCUMENT. OF COURSE THERE WERE PRIVILEGED ELITES…BUT THERE WAS FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ANYPLACE ELSE…AN ORDINARY MAN COULD OWN LAND. MOST SIGNFICANTLY, HOWEVER, WAS THE CONCEPT OF THE “CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.” The defining feature defined the principles overlaying America’s system of law and governance and continues to underlie the DISTINCTIVELY AMERICAN SPIRIT OF INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM TO PURSUE OPPORTUNITY WITHOUT INTERFERENCE FROM GOVERNMENT OBSTRUCTION.
THIS IDEA WAS REVOLUTIONARY IN VIRTUAL EVERY INSTANCE IS STILL NOT EMBRACED LET ALONE IN OPERATION ANYPLACE IN THE WORLD. GOVERNMENTS RULE OVER THEIR PEOPLE BASED ON “RIGHTS” ORIGINATING AND FOREVER STUCK IN ANCIENT CLAIMS TO AUTHORITY. FROM NOTHING…THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THROUGH A SMALL HANDFUL OF REPRESENTATIVES, INVENTED A NEW GOVERNMENT FROM NOTHING, NEGOTIATED A CONTRACT FOR LIMITED GOVERNMENT OVER A PEOPLE THAT CONSENTED TO BE GOVERNED. SAY AGAIN, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CONSENTED TO BE GOVERNED BY THE NEWLY CREATED FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THAT GUIDING AND REVOLUTIONARY PRINCIPLE OF GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE, OF THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE, THE SUPREME DOCUMENT GOVERNING THE AFFAIRS OF GOVERNANCE INCLUDED NOT JUST THOSE POWERS THAT THE GOVERNMENT WOULD ENJOY, BUT THOSE WHICH THE GOVERNMENT WERE EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN TO EXERCISE, AND BY “EXCLUSION” OF THOSE CLAUSES EXPRESSLY GRANTING POWERS, THAT GOVERNMENT HAD NO AUTHORITY TO INTERFERE AND WERE EXPRESSLY RESERVED FOR THE STATES .
THIS SYSTEM OF DUAL SOVEREIGNTY WAS DESIGNED FOR AND HAS LARGELY SUCCEEDED IN PREVENTING THE NEWLY CREATED GOVERNMENT FROM PURSUING ITS OWN INTERESTS AND ACCUMULATING POWER IN FURTHERANCE OF THOSE INTERESTS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE PERSONAL LIBERTY OF THE PEOPLE WHO WERE PROTECTED BY THE CONSTITUTION. [INTERRUPTED…STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SHUT DOWN.]
[BACK AT IT]
The who system was designed as a HEDGE AGAINST “TYRANNY.” Tyranny comes not in the form of a foreign threat. Tyranny is the assertion of power by a government overt its own people. After breaking free from England the Founding Fathers looked not across the seas but to the newly formed federal government in Washington D.C.
The Second Amendment is NOT about guns. It must be viewed within the context of its roots and the priority it was assigned by the drafters. Prior to independence the British could occupy ANY HOME and be provided food and shelter. The scope of such an invasion of privacy loomed large in the Framer’s minds when drafting the Bill of Rights and institutionalizing the CIVIL RIGHTS to be enjoyed BY the citizens FROM excessive use of power BY THEIR GOVERNMENT.
PRIOR TO THE WAR FOR INDEPENDENCE THE BRITISH CROWN SET ABOUT THE TASK OF ENFORCING LAWS AIMED AT CRIMINALIZING CERTAIN SPEECH DEEMED INIMITABLE TO BRITISH RULE. In this instance the term used by the state to justify the suppression of ideas and persecution of political opposition was “sedition” and its twin “treason.” Imagine that…caught in possession of a POLITICAL PAMPHLET could result in one’s EXECUTION. The power to suppress speech was used to attack ALL AREAS OF THE LIVES OF THE COLONISTS. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING could be called into question as being in violation of a LAW AIMED AT SPEECH. The “value” being upheld in this instance was British rule. This is no different than any other value whose ultimate goal is the same: retaining absolute power. It can be called “seditious,” “hateful,” “racist,” “insulting,” “offensive,” and of course the most widely abused and recognized pretext for prosecuting threats to absolute rule: BLASPHEME. A term used to describe expression that violates a particular value or set of values. It is wholly interchangeable with others and the nature of the underlying “value” is irrelevant. Whether it’s called “hate speech” or “seditious” or “racist” or “blasphemous” the essence and purpose is the SAME: to empower government to PERSECUTE THOSE INDIVIDUALS DEEMED TO EXPRESS IDEAS THAT RUN CONTRARY TO THE INTERESTS OF THE STATE. THE TERM USED AND THE VALUE(S) IDENTIFIED AS THE MOTIVATION BEHIND THEM HAVE NO MEANING. THEY ARE A SWORD…FOR USE AGAINST THE PEOPLE FALLING UNDER THEIR JURISDICTION.
So…the Framers KNEW FIRST HAND that the POWER TO CONTROL IDEAS IS THE FIRST TARGET OF TYRANNY’S AGGRESSION. We know that Obama has already expressed his preference for Islamic values over American values of personal freedom and free speech. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of islam,” he has said on some number of occasions. Put another way, the “value” is Islam’s prohibition against “slander of the prophet” or “blaspheme” which in turn is interchangeable with “HATE SPEECH.” To Muslims…”blaspheme” is the operative term used to criminalize speech that violates a value or set of values which in this case is ISLAM. It is the OSTENSIBLE PROTECTION OF THOSE “VALUES” that is used by government to reach into every area of human affairs and every personal matter no matter how private, threaten, extort, intimidate, persecute and PROSECUTE INDIVIDUALS FOR THEIR BELIEFS, PRACTICES, POLITICAL VIEWS, ETC.
Hence it made sense that the FIRST PROVISION OF THE ENTIRE CONSTITUTION IS DESIGNED AS A HEDGE AGAINST TYRANNY BY DENYING THE GOVERNMENT THE AUTHORITY TO ABRIDGE THE INDIVIDUAL’S FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION. SO LONG AS IDEAS COULD BE FREELY CIRCULATED…SO WENT THE THINKING…THE BETTER CHANCES OF THE CITIZENRY WISING UP TO THE AGGRESSIONS OF AN ASPIRING TYRANT THAT THEY MAY ORGANIZE (“ASSEMBLE”) IN A COMBINED EFFORT TO PUSH BACK.
IF THAT FAILS…IF FREEDOM OF SPEECH PROTECTED BY THE FIRST AMENDMENT SHOULD FAIL…then TYRANNY IS UPON THE PEOPLE. The FIRST hedge against tyranny has given way. It ALSO SIGNALS THE ENCROACHMENT OF TYRANNY THAT WOULD DEPRIVE THE CITIZENS THE RIGHT TO FREELY EXPRESS THEMSELVES WITHOUT FEAR OF GOVERNMENT ACTION. WHEN THAT FAILED…THE SECOND AMENDMENT SERVED AS THE FINAL OBSTACLE (AND DETERRENT) AGAINST A WOULD-BE TYRANT WHO NOW COMES TO ENFORCE ITS LIMITATIONS ON SPEECH…IDEAS…OPINIONS…ETC. THIS was the thinking of the Framers when they VERY CONSCIOUSLY WEIGHED THE RISKS OF PRIVATE CITIZENS BEARING ARMS…”IN DEFENSE OF LIBERTY AGAINST TYRANNY” (NOT CRIME/HOME SECURITY!).
Donald Trump has been accused and convicted of “hate speech” in the public forum. The media, icons of pop culture, academics, NGO’s of every variety, religious groups, liberal fascist radicals, Latinos (foolishly) and Black people (even more foolishly). What is hate speech? In this instance the supposed value being “protected” is the eradication of racism. Trump is the sole viable political opposition to this massive effort to silence speech deemed “racist.” The links in the chain are quite clear. RACISM is being EQUATED WITH POLITICAL OPPOSITION (IN THE FORM OF WHITE CHRISTIAN CITIZENS WHO SUBSCRIBE TO “CONSERVATIVE” VALUES THAT HAVE BEEN ATTACKED, VILIFIED AND SMEARED TO THE POINT WHERE IT IS VIEWED AS A FORM OF EXTREMISM IF NOT “RADICAL” AND PUSHED TO THE MARGINS.
MEANWHILE…AS MUSLIMS PURSUE THEIR EXTRA-JUDICIAL PROGRAM OF ERADICATING “HATE SPEECH” BY TURNING PUBLIC STREETS, PLACES OF WORK, MEDIA SOURCES THAT ARE NOT YET ON BOARD, AND MOST RECENTLY GAYS AT A NIGHTCLUB. IN EVERY INSTANCE…MUSLIMS…CLAIMING TO CARRY OUT THESE VICIOUS ACTS OF VIOLENCE IN THE NAME OF ISLAM…THEN CELEBRATED BY OTHER MUSLIMS…THEN DENOUNCED (KINDA) BY YET ANOTHER GROUP OF MUSLIMS. And while the COMMON DENOMINATOR IN EVERY ONE OF THESE SHOOTINGS IS ISLAM…OBAMA/NOW CLINTON/THE MEDIA/LIBERAL FASCISTS/AND THE ENTIRE FRUIT SALAD BOWL OF WACKADOOS PRESSING THE CASE FOR “GUN CONTROL.” WE ARE TO BELIEVE THAT ISLAM PLAYS NO ROLE IN THESE MURDERS…AND WITH GREATER “GUN CONTROL” LAWS THESE ATTACKS WILL STOP, PRESUMABLY BECAUSE TERRORISTS AND CRIMINALS WILL SURELY COMPLY WITH ANY NEW REGULATIONS.
OBAMA IS HUNTING FREE SPEECH. IF HE SUCCEEDS, AMERICAN FREEDOM IS DEAD. WHEN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SETS OUT TO ENFORCE THE NEW FASCIST POLICIES AIMED AT THE SUPPRESSION OF IDEAS AND POLITICAL OPPOSITION AND RIVALS TO POWER…HE NOW GOES ABOUT THE TASK OF DISARMING THE PEOPLE WHOSE SPEECH AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION WAS STOLEN FROM THEM BY THEIR PRESIDENT..THE VERY MAN TWICE ENTRUSTED TO SAFEGUARD THEM.
SIMULTANEOUSLY…THIS SNAKE AND THE LIBERAL FASCIST MOVEMENT TAKES AIM AT SPEECH THAT IS ASSERTED AS VIOLATING THE VALUES OF SOCIETY AND THE MEANS BY WHICH THE CITIZENS NOW DEPRIVED OF THEIR FREEDOM MIGHT RESIST THE EFFORTS BY TYRANNY TO CLAMP DOWN AND START ENFORCING THE NEW FASCISM. WE ARE A CHIP SHOT AWAY FROM THE 18th green from the PROVOCATION OF VIOLENCE as pretext for the ASSERTION OF MARTIAL LAW. “Regulations” will be adopted aimed at “quieting the unrest” that will have the effect of law, be enforced in an arbitrary manner and remain in place long after they were stated to be in effect. The homes of registered gun owners will be ENTERED BY FORCE. Legally owned arms will be CONFISCATED. Registered gun owners will become targeted as CRIMINALS. ALL THE WHILE…MUSLIM TERRORISTS (AMAZINGLY NOT COMPLYING WITH THE NEW (OR ANY) GUN CONTROL MEASURES) CONTINUE THE STOCKPILING OF ARMS AND BEGIN TO UNLEASH HELL ON AMERICAN CITIZENS ON AMERICAN SOIL.
HE IS THE PROCESS OF REVOKING FREEDOM OF SPEECH…AND THEN THE MEANS WITH WHICH LAW ABIDING CITIZENS MIGHT DEFEND THEMSELVES AGAINST A MUSLIM FIFTH COLUMN OPERATING AS FORWARD DEPLOYED ON BEHALF OF A MUSLIM PRESIDENT WHO WILL INSTALL HIMSELF AS A MUSLIM DICTATOR AT WHICH TIME THE REAL FUN BEGINS. MAKE NO MISTAKE…WE DO NOT NOW STAND ON THE BRINK OF HISTORIC EVENTS. THESE HISTORIC EVENTS ARE WELL UNDERWAY AND WHETHER OR NOT IT BE ACKNOWLEDGED…WE ARE BEING SWEPT OFF OUR FEET AND WILL BE WASHED OUT TO SEA.
AMERICA: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
MODERN DAY FOREIGN NATIONALS ENTERING AMERICAN TERRITORY IN OPEN VIOLATION AND SHEER CONTEMPT FOR ITS LAWS:
“I who have chosen to come…for opportunities that don’t exist in my native land…and enjoy the countless benefits and legal protections of a nation of laws…demonstrate my sheer contempt for your laws…determining for myself whether any of your laws apply to me…deciding for myself on a case by case basis which of your laws are “just”…arbitrarily electing to respect those laws which I deem just and taking the position that the ones I choose to violate do not apply to me…and that the violation of such “unjust” laws does not amount to a “crime” or make me a “criminal” in the eyes of me. I demand that my mere presence here by any means affords me all the rights and benefits of those who arrive here in accordance with your laws. All people of the earth possess the inalienable right to cross your borders and receive all the rights and privileges of your society. While I insist on the principle of “global citizenship,” I come to America and seek the dissolution of ITS borders and all distinctiveness of ITS citizenship. I seek all the benefits of a functioning American society without any of the laws, institutions and general apparatus necessary to and central to the definition of citizenship. I seek all the benefits of American citizenship without offering anything in return not even respect for its laws. I seek a global community without any borders or national identity…yet I pursue that agenda HERE because of the unique freedoms afforded even to totally ungrateful insufferable troglodytes like me who DEMAND THESE THINGS AND MORE AS A MATTER OF HUMAN RIGHTS. Thanks no thanks for the invitation. We’re coming cuz it is our right. It is our right because it is justice. Justice is whatever we identify as the next “get.” Even though we SAY that these things we do will inure to the benefit of America as a whole, we offer no logical reasoning or explanation as to how. We refuse to engage in a reasoned conversation about how these things will WEAKEN this nation. And we are FAR too stupid to make that connection that if we seek the benefits offered by America, we proclaim that our actions will STRENGTHEN America and benefit ALL Americans which of course it will NOT and inasmuch as we are now (by virtue of unilateral nullification of its laws) a PART of “all Americans.” In short…we are working diligently to undermine our OWN INTERESTS. We are literally too stupid to make any of these connections…and in all likelihood won’t notice anything different until the axe of Islamic law comes crashing down splitting our heads open and spilling our brains all over the floor of our cold, dark cell. In summation…we the modern day “immigrant”…invite you, America, to suq a huge bag of diqz. F’real tho.”

Don’t care about the “niceties” common to and required of formal writing. I have many thoughts to get down…and if I don’t get them down in real time they are gone. So…voila.]
