“If we wish to minimize disorder and bloodshed, then acting now is our last chance to avoid major chaos and violence. If we act now riots worse than the ones in the 1960s may erupt, but if we do not act now, the results will make the riots of the late sixties look like quaint shoolyard squabbles. There is a rapidly closing window of opportunity in which we have the luxury of doing things legally and non-violently.”

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
“We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious
is the first duty of intelligent men.”
George Orwell, author of “1984” (1903-1950)
I originally titled this article as a query, “Time To Reboot America?” but after a little thought realized that there is no question — it is past time to reboot America. By “reboot” I mean that it is time for “we the people” to avail ourselves of the instructions left to us by the Founders:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Link
There we have it; there it is; those are our marching orders. It is not only our right; it is our duty to fight a tyrannical, despotic government that holds sway over us, no matter under what label it hides — even when that government is wearing the garb of the United States of America. That we are indeed suffering under “a long train of abuses and usurpations” is no longer in doubt; no longer to be denied; no longer to be endured. So the question becomes “What to do?” How best to effect the overthrow of a blatantly anti-American elitist political/social cabal — as large, powerful, and entrenched as it is?
As our Declaration of Independence notes, such an important and monumental task is not to be undertaken for “light and transient causes.” Nor should “we the people” commit ourselves to a foolish, or impatient course of action.
About six months after Obama usurped the Presidency, readers started to email me asking “what can we do — what can I do?” “We the people” found various ways to get involved, and I stopped receiving such emails well before the November 2008 elections. The emails started up again a few months back, but with a difference — now people are wanting to know where to attack, when to attack, how to attack. To say that “the natives are restless” would be a gross understatement. Link
In the relatively short time since I started to cover the political scene during the 2008 elections, I have watched “we the people” go from confused, to dismayed, to angry, to “locked and loaded.” I suspect that the only reason that American Revolution II has remained on the back burner for as long as it has, is only because of a lack of leadership and direction. Walt Kelly’s statement that “we have met the enemy and he is us” was never more apropos than in regards to America today. Where do you point the gun without the risk of shooting yourself in the foot? (If you have not yet read Angelo M. Codevilla’s article “The Chosen,” then please do so. I’ll wait). Link
America has been so thoroughly infiltrated and infested with traitorous elements that it has become difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff, the patriot from the traitor. Nonetheless we must move to save America (and with it freedom), and we must move with some alacrity. Link
All well and good, but what sort of action, and in what direction? Aye, there’s the rub. For in moving against the “establishment” — which is now arrayed against “we the people” — we must be very careful not to fall into carrying out a scenario they have planned for us. I do not believe that we can wait until the 2012 elections to take back America, but that does not mean that I advocate a violent revolution, or taking to the streets pell-mell and directionless.
In fact, it is my sincere wish that America can be spared such a thing. I would much prefer a “Velvet Revolution” comparable to the 1988 movement that overthrew the communist regime in Czechoslovakia. Link
(Sidebar: kudos are in order for actor Jeremy Irons, who not only did the narration for a film on the “Velvet Revolution,” but also narrated the film on Lt. Michael Behenna — whose “Defend Michael” wrist-band I have worn for some time in support of him, the “Leavenworth 10,” and all of our US military who have been unjustly imprisoned). Link Link
When your house is on fire because of arson, finding out who the arsonist is, and why they lit the fire should not top your “To Do” list. Putting out the darn fire should be your number one priority. Nevertheless, “putting out the fire” in this case will involve jailing some of the lead “arsonists” as part of the process. That means “heads will roll” — in a purely figurative sense I hope.
I’m talking about pointing fingers, and naming names. I’m talking about jail time — serious jail time. I’m talking about mass movements to unseat treasonous Americans across the country. I’m talking about a “house cleaning” from top to bottom; side to side. I’m talking about some very serious stuff folks. Things you wouldn’t dream of doing for “light and transient causes.” Link
Freedom itself is at stake here. Future generations will live in freedom and light. or darkness and shackles, depending on what “we the people” do today. We did not want this fight, but it has fallen to us to be the torch-bearers, the Minute Men, the American patriots who once more take the fight to the enemy, and make them rue the day they messed with America. Most of you already know the score, so I won’t bother going over the long list of “abuses and usurpations” — which go back for decades, even though they are coming to a head just now.
There is no sense in asking “why us.” It is what it is. (Personally, I have often wondered how I ended up writing about politics [“Why couldn’t I be churning out lucrative bodice-rippers about vampire love and lust, or some such. Why this?”]. Not wishing at this time to go into arcane details regarding karma, free-will, destiny, divine providence, and the like, I’ll simply repeat — it is what it is).
Which means that it is up to “we the people” to put out the fire (“Once more unto the breech, dear friends, once more”). By the term “we the people” I mean that strong backbone of America that the country has always called upon in time of dire need — and who have always responded. It includes blue and white collar workers, high school dropouts and the highly educated, farmers and businessmen, soldiers and sailors…. Patriots all. Link
Our country needs us — once again. The stakes involved are as big, and the outcome as uncertain as in any situation we have ever faced — including the Civil War, and Revolutionary War. God willing, this revolution will not be as painful and bloody as those in our past. But if it is — what of it? It is our watch, our duty, our time to stand tall — come hell or high water.
The time has come to reboot America. The time for talk is done. We should be about the business of forming patriotic cadres, groups and movements — from the national level down to splinter cells. The “Birther’s Summit” scheduled for next March, and the Oath Keepers “Operation Sleeping Giant” are good examples of what I’m talking about. We should do this now. Some of you have no doubt been involved in such action for some time. Now is the time to go into full battle mode. This is no drill. Link Link
We should keep on sending emails and letters, placing phone calls, knocking on doors, saying prayers, et al. — but there needs to be a new sense of urgency about it all. We need to ratchet things up — kick out the jams, pull out the stops, and throw back the throttle. We need to broaden our scope, deepen our commitment, and fire up our righteous indignation.
I understand, and respect, the need for secrecy some of you must work under, but there is strength in numbers, and we should be about the business of openly organizing national as well as local NGOs to fight the enemy tooth and nail. Unseat them, impeach them, disgrace them, and otherwise use every legal means at our disposal to get rid of these parasitic leeches that have infested our country. Make sure that they understand just how much we despise them, and how unwelcome their traitorous, arrogant, anti-American agendas are.
It is not a major concern that the bulk of Americans are still largely clueless about what is going on. It is to be expected after decades of intentional dumbing down, and a steady diet of disinformation, propaganda, and frivolous distractions via America’s various venues for “news” and entertainment. We do not need their participation. They are dead weight — but they are not the enemy.
If someone is a NWO, one-world-government globalist, then they are the enemy — you know their catch phrases and lingo by now. If someone is a Muslim Islamist, bent on world conquest through blatant or stealth jihad, then they are our enemy. I won’t go through the whole list — most of you know it by now anyway.
They are the enemies of liberty and “unalienable rights.” They are the enemies of freedom and choice. They are the enemies of tradition and values. They are the enemies of families and marriage. They are the enemies of truth and honor. They are the enemies of the United States of America. They are the enemies of civilization itself. They are my enemy, and they are your enemy.
After the shootings in Tucson the media propaganda outlets whined about Sarah Palin’s map that “zeroed in” on political opponents. Yeah well, they ain’t seen nothing yet — not by a long shot. We need to zero in on these dirt-bags and as Alinsky advised, “identify, isolate, and freeze them.” Time for the gloves to come off. Anything short of breaking the law is now on the table.
It may appear that the enemy is vast and formidable, and I would certainly never underestimate them, but in fact, they are only a relative handful of fanatics. The sheeple who swell their ranks will be the last ones to awaken to how they have been played — but awaken they will. Many of them are simply greedy, arrogant, self-centered twits, who wouldn’t know patriotism if it came up and bit them on the butt. Their mind-sets are largely dysfunctional and self-absorbed (arrogance, angst, and ennui, oh my).
The dyed-in-the-wool fanatics are much fewer in number than “we the people,” and they are much less impressive when stripped of their media “loud-speakers” and political clout. That is, after all, why they went to such pains to subvert those institutions. It is the puppet-masters behind the fanatics, behind the sheeple, behind our corrupted politicians, who are dangerous — very dangerous indeed.
Speaking of corrupted politicians; it is a naive mistake to think that just getting rid of the politicians currently in Washington DC will solve our problems. A number of America’s institutions are in desperate need of an over-haul. They should be included in the “house cleaning,” and it will require some time and effort to set things aright. I’m thinking mainly of our educational system, such as it is. One thing at a time — or everything-all-at-once, whatever works.
Some folks mistake the police for our enemy, due mainly to a few duplicitous and corrupt leaders among them. It is well to keep in mind that, by and large, the police are filled with patriotic, conservative men and women who are dedicated to law and order, and preserving the peace. That means that the police should not, as a whole, ever be considered the enemy. For every Sheriff Dupnik, or Bacca, there are many more true patriots like Sheriff Mack, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and Sheriff Paul Babeu. Beware of the exceptions, but the vast majority of the police are on our side – constrained as they may be at times by rules and fulfilling their jobs. Link Link
Like the US government as a whole, the US military is riddled with quislings, brain-washed dupes, and traitors of various sorts, who will not uphold their oath to defend the US Constitution — but just as with the police, it would be a grave mistake to think of our armed forces as being the enemy — they are anything but.
Granted, some of the treasonous scum currently strutting their stuff at the Pentagon would turn on “we the people” in a heartbeat, but the vast majority of the junior grade officers, and the rank and file, will refuse to fire upon their fellow Americans — won’t you, junior grade officers, and rank and file? If they are unsure, they had better make up their minds in a hurry. The moment after receiving an order, that they know in their heart is wrong, is not the time to join the debating society.
They need to know beforehand where their allegiance lies — with America and the US Constitution, or with a temporary despotic regime. They need to make up their minds now. “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic….” Words are cheap — integrity and valor will cost you. Link
Patriotic organizations such as we currently have, need to step things up a notch — make that several notches. At the same time, we need to take as a given that any openly patriotic movement will attract enemy infiltrators like a magnet. Also, there are bound to be enemy sources of discord and disinformation masquerading as patriotic NGOs. These should be lumped together with other elements of controlled opposition, and dealt with as time and opportunity allow.
If we wish to minimize disorder and bloodshed, then acting now is our last chance to avoid major chaos and violence. If we act now riots worse than the ones in the 1960s may erupt, but if we do not act now, the results will make the riots of the late sixties look like quaint shoolyard squabbles. There is a rapidly closing window of opportunity in which we have the luxury of doing things legally and non-violently. After that window closes all bets are off. Après cette, le déluge.
Although “we the people” no doubt have numerous people in our midst who would make the eco-terrorists look like rank amateurs, if the situation deteriorates to guerrilla warfare and sabotage, then we have lost America as a country, and it will devolve into a Byzantine network of splinter factions, regions, and enclaves. If that scenario should become a reality, then heads will roll — literally. That eventuality must be prepared for as well. May God grant we avoid it.
Lest you think that the views expressed in this article are extreme, I suggest that you find and read some far right blogs and websites. In comparison, I am the voice of moderation and prudence itself. My point here is that while the liberal propaganda outlets no doubt consider the views I express to be extreme; the truth is that they are the ones who are extreme — extremely to the left. What is essentially a rather moderate conservative view becomes skewed under their warped perception into something rabidly far right.
At worst, they can accuse us of being what — anti-globalists? “We the people” are certainly not anti-American. America is what we are fighting for. We are not the ones leading our country to dark ruination through arrogant stupidity, avarice, and design. We are not the one’s lauding one-world-government over America — disdaining America, reviling America, destroying America. That is their job — and they excel at it.
As I close, let me say that America needs to bring God back into our national fabric. This, more than anything else, is what our country sorely needs. We have lost our moral anchor, our guiding star, and only acceptance of God, and His natural law, can return us to our intended course. God either exists or He does not. If He does not exist, then nothing ultimately matters, and we are left with naught but the ash heap of atheistic nihilism.
But if God exists (and oh He does), then we would have to be insane to deny His existence, or more commonly, we would need to be in secret (often a secret hidden even from ourselves) rebellion against God — refusing to acknowledge anything higher, more important, or more worthy of devotion than our own sweet selves. Such an attitude is a soul sickness, and America is sick in her soul. Link
There is another worse case scenario than the one I mentioned earlier, of course. The world may be drawn into a nuclear Armageddon, or a biological disaster, or some other life-ending catastrophic event. It is always a good idea to get right with God — now so, more than ever.
It is time to reboot America. May God guide, bless, and protect us in our endeavors to keep the torch of freedom lit. “We the people” did not ask for, or want this fight, but with God’s grace we will d–n sure win this fight. For ourselves, for our children, for humanity, for freedom.
