Martial Law - Drills, Drills, & More Drills

By Nancy Levant
January 23, 2006
In spite of the fact that monkeys continue to cover their eyes, ears, 
and mouths, they are still glued to their TV sets, and you can bet 
these Darwinian primates are getting nervous along with the rest of 
us. Martial law is being heavily practiced in the United States.

It has now been decided that being forced to show your bags, purses, 
and ID's upon command is not unconstitutional. You can be arrested, 
as an American citizen, for failure to do so. The line between 
police, military, FEMA, eco-dictators, and Homeland Security 
personnel has blurred, and we are vulnerable to the powers of them 
all. But why? 

If we listen to the media, which is, of course, the orchestrated and 
desired state of affairs, we are told of impending economic disaster, 
impending terrorist threats to the homeland, impending pandemics, 
impending eco-weather super storms, and impending mass power grid 
failures. Hmmm…and all in step with the Martial Law system that has 
been fully set into place and stone via many, many Executive Orders. 
Hmmm… Looks like all that's needed to release that beast is another 
good catastrophe and, according to our media, a good many are in the 

The other angle of this story, however, is not mentioned on corporate 
TV – that being the one-world governance slant. They don't talk about 
one-world government on television. They don't talk about Agenda 21 
or its partnering/stakeholding bureaucracies or the Biosphere 
Reserves and their direct-connect to the United Nations, World Bank, 
and World Trade Organization. They don't talk about the taking down 
of the Christian religion and the dumbing down of American children. 
They don't talk about the Socialist take-over of the American public 
school system. They don't talk about manufactured super viruses, the 
intent to draft female children, or mandatory military service into 
global armies. 

Corporate media does not report on the nearly complete 
judicial/political movement to disassemble the United States 
Constitution. Nor do they report on George Washington University's 
intent to replace our Constitution with a Communitarian-based 
constitution – a hybrid Communist-Socialist government and its 
mandatory compliance. Corporate media does not report the facts and 
specific details of the Patriot Act II.

No, corporate media does not report on one-world governance because, 
if they did, they would have to tell the American populace that the 
American government is no longer in the hands of the American people. 
They would have to tell them, that for decades and decades, their 
votes were manipulated and that all candidates in the last 50 years 
(or many more) were well paid and connected globalist planners and/or 

Equally, media would have to tell the American people that they were 
to be forced into Socialist governance using military-style force. 
They would have to tell the people to turn over their private 
property, their guns, their gods, their children, their sick and 
infirmed, their rights to mobility, and their rights to all 
dissension. They would have to tell the people that their 
Constitution was trumped and buried by the very people they elected 
with waving flag in hand.

The corporate media would have to report on the North American Sector 
and the Organization of American States ( the new 
collective global/political region of Canada-America-Mexico-Central 
America-South America – all of which mandated by the United Nations. 
And they would also have to tell the American people about the 
stakeholding/regionalization connection – the replacement governing 
system for counties and local jurisdictions, which specifically 
replaces local governance and voting with appointed bureaucrats. And 
they would have to tell the people about the herding of the masses 
into eco-villages, communitarian housing, corporate live-work units, 
or collectives, so to speak. You know, the ones with the built-in 
policing services (C.O.P.S. = Community Oriented Policing Services – 
look it up).

They would have to report on the cross-training of national 
militaries, in preparation for one-law-fits-all governance (Cross-
training is interesting as one might assume that American boys and 
girls might be hesitant to fire upon their friends, families, and 
fellow citizens. However, soldiers from other countries – especially 
American-despising nations – would, no doubt, easily solve that 
potential problem). 

Corporate media doesn't like to report on the patenting of 
genetically modified food or animals, either – almost as much as they 
dislike reporting on mandatory and tainted vaccines – as in be 
vaccinated or be arrested or vaccinate your children or lose your 
children. And speaking of children, media skips the part about the 
complete elimination of American history and Constitution studies, 
because they would have to explain to the people that American 
history and Constitution are eliminated, and that the new global 
citizens, your children, are now being trained for his and her work 

Corporate media does not mention "humane" global population 
reduction – the scientific mastering of euthanasia and super viruses 
manufactured by scientists who, globally, wind up mysteriously dying 
or disappearing. And media has never touched the subject of Agenda 21 
and its ties to the largest "environmental" non-profits and agencies 
in the world, who own more global land than entire governments, and 
who have all called for massive global population reduction.

So, here's my point – why, you ask, are Martial Law drills being 
practiced in all states? Why does America, the land of the free, have 
staffed and readied detention camps in most, if not all, states? And 
why does the media not report on the most historic and compelling 
news in American history? I'll tell you why. Because we are being 
conquered by corporate/financial manipulation – clearly – and planned 
catastrophes are the mode and means to the end. 

"Catastrophe," and perhaps "global catastrophe," will continue to 
switch on a complete Martial Law take-over and control of the 
American masses. "Catastrophe," we will be told, necessitates 
military take-over for our own good. I suggest to you that Martial 
Law will ensue for several years to several decades until Americans 
get used to the fact that they are under the jurisdiction and control 
of a one-world governing body, which is absolutely an oligarchy. And 
I'm equally sure that as we degrade in life style, education, and our 
individual liberties are completely eliminated, our children will be 
raised in a world none the wiser of past freedoms. The beacon of 
freedom and freedom for the masses are to be forgotten and eliminated 
from the history books – much akin to the elite canon-pickers of days 
gone by.

The Baby Boomers are a large part of the current American population, 
and we are rapidly aging. The timing of the global governance take-
over and the Martial Law system, in my opinion, is impeccable. The 
globalists have done their homework and their system is masterful. 
Too bad that we've been kickin' back, drinkin' beer, getting' high, 
watchin' the tube, loadin' up our credit cards, and buyin' $200,000 
cracker boxes while the big boys were laughing all the way to their 
banking positions, political positions, and million dollar overseas 
homes and mansions inside of conservation corridors – the lands where 
the masses dare not tread. 

Kissinger once referred to the bulk of humanity as "useless eaters." 
Perhaps he was being generous. Just don't be surprised when units of 
men and women, with new generation weapons, are walking down Maple 
Street in Americana, USA, and demanding your papers, cash, food 
stores, and houses. Just keep watching TV. It will tell you what to 
do when the catastrophe(s) strikes. See you in camp.

Freedom - The Cold, Hard Facts

By Nancy Levant
January 24, 2006
There are a thousand critically important issues to deal with in 
today's world, but American citizens need to be very careful. The 
creation of social chaos is the fundamental tool used by 
Constitutional destroyers to divide and conquer the ability to focus 
on the big prize, which is freedom. Our focus should not be upon 
partisan details, but upon Constitutional dismantling. Our political 
opinions and leanings will be non-issues if there is no 
Constitutional Republic.

As each day passes, and we continue to see our "representatives" 
refusing to represent American freedom, and as we continue to see our 
voting powers eliminated by the non-elected partnership-stakeholding 
system of global leadership, one wonders if there will ever be 
another election. Specifically, one wonders if Martial Law will be 
implemented before another election date rolls around. Due to the 
fact that our nation has been totally and very skillfully bankrupted 
by highly educated economic experts, one wonders if we have been set 
up to purposefully crash, whereby giving Martial Law its jurisdiction.

It should be very clear to every American citizen that 1) something 
is terribly wrong with our "representative government," and 2) our 
representatives and their corporate partners are recreating public 
law. Our rights as American citizens are being systematically, 
purposefully eliminated. Therefore, our opinions about this social 
condition and that cultural trend are pointless. In the very near 
future, changes could occur in America that will make all 
partisanship null and void. Martial Law knows no partisanship and 
cares not for opinion. It knows only military-style dictatorship.

At this point in time, I strongly suggest that American people 
prepare for the worst. All indicators lead to renegade politicians 
who are overthrowing the American government and its Constitution. No 
one can deny this fact. Equally, a Martial Law system is totally, 
completely in place thanks to three or more decades of powers amassed 
through presidential Executive Orders and many, many Acts.

Consider the following:

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of 
transportation and control of highways and seaports.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the 
communication media.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all 
electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food 
resources and farms.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians 
into work brigades under government supervision.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, 
education and welfare functions.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a 
national registration of all persons.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports 
and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to 
relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate 
areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, 
inland waterways and public storage facilities.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of 
Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive 
Orders in to effect in times of increased international tensions and 
economic or financial crisis.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice 
to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute 
industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to 
control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, 
and to advise and assist the President.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to 
federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative 
Executive Orders issued over a fifteen-year period.

EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness 
Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of 
production and distribution of energy sources, wages, salaries, 
credit, and the flow of money in U.S. financial institutions in any 
undefined national emergency. It also provides that when the 
President declares a state of emergency, Congress cannot review the 
action for six months.

Add to these Executive Orders the Model State Emergency Health Powers 
Act, which would give state governors and public health officials the 
power to:

·    Force individuals suspected of harboring an "infectious disease" 
to undergo medical examinations. 

·    Track and share an individual's personal health information, 
including genetic information. 

·    Force persons to be vaccinated, treated, or quarantined for 
infectious diseases. 

·    Mandate that all health care providers report all cases of 
persons who harbor any illness or health condition that may be caused 
by an epidemic or an infectious agent and might pose a "substantial 
risk" to a "significant number of people or cause a long-term 
disability." (Note: Neither "substantial risk" nor "significant 
number" are defined in the draft.) 

·    Force pharmacists to report any unusual or any increased 
prescription rates that may be caused by epidemic diseases. 

·    Preempt existing state laws, rules and regulations, including 
those relating to privacy, medical licensure, and--this is key--
property rights. 

·    Control public and private property during a public health 
emergency, including pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, nursing 
homes, other health care facilities, and communications devices. 

·    Mobilize all or any part of the "organized militia into service 
to the state to help enforce the state's orders." 

·    Ration firearms, explosives, food, fuel and alcoholic beverages, 
among other commodities. 

·    Impose fines and penalties to enforce their orders. 

Then, consider the following:

·    Super viruses are manufactured.

·    Borders are open to illegals of all shapes and kinds.

·    NAFTA-CAFTA-FTAA enforces internationalized economics.

·    Imported nuclear devices are known to be in the United States.

·    Our nation was bureaucratically bankrupted by the Federal 
Reserve Corporation.

·    The Partnership-stakeholding bureaucracy eliminates voting.

·    The elected representatives of the American people are rapidly 
eliminating constitutional rights.

·    The American military is completely dedicated to foreign 
theaters, while a secondary military system has been established on 
the homeland with new and unimaginable powers over the citizenry.

Let us consider the powers of the Patriot Act II:

SECTION 501 (Expatriation of Terrorists) expands the definition 
of "enemy combatant" to all American citizens who "may" have violated 
any provision of Section 802 of the first Patriot Act. (Section 802 
is the new definition of domestic terrorism, and the definition 
is "any action that endangers human life that is a violation of any 
Federal or State law.") Section 501 of the second Patriot Act 
directly connects to Section 125 of the same act. The Justice 
Department boldly claims that the incredibly broad Section 802 of the 
First USA Patriot Act isn't broad enough and that a new, unlimited 
definition of terrorism is needed.

Under Section 501 a US citizen engaging in lawful activities can be 
grabbed off the street and thrown into a van never to be seen again. 
The Justice Department states that they can do this because the 
person "had inferred from conduct" that they were not US citizens. 
Remember Section 802 of the First USA Patriot Act states that any 
violation of Federal or State law can result in the "enemy combatant" 
terrorist designation.

SECTION 201 of the second Patriot Act makes it a criminal act for any 
member of the government or any citizen to release any information 
concerning the incarceration or whereabouts of detainees. It also 
states that law enforcement does not have to tell the press who they 
have arrested, and they never have to release the names.

SECTION 301 and 306 (Terrorist Identification Database) set up a 
national database of "suspected terrorists" and radically expand the 
database to include anyone associated with suspected terrorist groups 
and anyone involved in crimes or having supported any group 
designated as "terrorist." These sections also set up a national DNA 
database for anyone on probation or who has been on probation for any 
crime, and orders State governments to collect the DNA for the 
Federal government.

SECTION 312 gives immunity to law enforcement engaging in spying 
operations against the American people and would place substantial 
restrictions on court injunctions against Federal violations of civil 
rights across the board.

SECTION 101 will designate individual terrorists as foreign powers 
and again strip them of all rights under the "enemy combatant" 

SECTION 102 states clearly that any information gathering, regardless 
of whether or not those activities are illegal, can be considered to 
be clandestine intelligence activities for a foreign power. This 
makes newsgathering illegal. 

SECTION 103 allows the Federal government to use wartime martial law 
powers domestically and internationally without Congress declaring 
that a state of war exists.

SECTION 106 is bone chilling in its straightforwardness. It states 
that broad general warrants by the secret FSIA court (a panel of 
secret judges set up in a star chamber system that convenes in an 
undisclosed location) granted under the first Patriot Act are not 
good enough. It states that government agents must be given immunity 
for carrying out searches with no prior court approval. This section 
throws out the entire Fourth Amendment against unreasonable searches 
and seizures.

SECTION 109 allows secret star-chamber courts to issue contempt 
charges against any individual or corporation who refuses to 
incriminate themselves or others. This section annihilates the last 
vestiges of the Fifth Amendment.

SECTION 110 restates that key police state clauses in the first 
Patriot Act were not sunsetted and removes the five-year sunset 
clause from other subsections of the first Patriot Act. After all, 
the media has told us: "This is the New America. Get used to it. This 
is forever."

SECTION 111 expands the definition of the "enemy combatant" 

SECTION 122 restates the government's newly announced power 
of "surveillance without a court order."

SECTION 123 restates that the government no longer needs warrants and 
that the investigations can be a giant dragnet-style sweep described 
in press reports about the Total Information Awareness Network. One 
passage reads, "thus the focus of domestic surveillance may be less 
precise than that directed against more conventional types of crime."

*Note: Over and over again, in subsection after subsection, the 
second Patriot Act states that its new Soviet-type powers will be 
used to fight international terrorism, domestic terrorism and other 
types of crimes. Of course the government has already announced in 
Section 802 of the first USA Patriot act that any crime is considered 
domestic terrorism.

SECTION 126 grants the government the right to mine the entire 
spectrum of public and private sector information from bank records 
to educational and medical records. This is the enacting law to allow 
ECHELON and the Total Information Awareness Network to break down any 
and all walls of privacy. The government states that they must look 
at everything to "determine" if individuals or groups might have a 
connection to terrorist groups. As you can now see, you are guilty 
until proven innocent.

SECTION 127 allows the government to takeover coroners' and medical 
examiners' operations whenever they see fit. 

SECTION 128 allows the Federal government to place gag orders on 
Federal and State Grand Juries and to take over the proceedings. It 
also disallows individuals or organizations to even try to quash a 
Federal subpoena. So now defending yourself will be a terrorist 

SECTION 129 destroys any remaining whistle blower protection for 
Federal agents.

SECTION 202 allows corporations to keep secret their activities with 
toxic biological, chemical or radiological materials. 

SECTION 205 allows top Federal officials to keep all financial 
dealings secret, and anyone investigating them can be considered a 

SECTION 303 sets up national DNA database of suspected terrorists. 
The database will also be used to "stop other unlawful activities." 
It will share the information with state, local and foreign agencies 
for the same purposes.

SECTION 311 federalizes your local police department in the area of 
information sharing.

SECTION 313 provides liability protection for businesses, especially 
big businesses, that spy on their customers for Homeland Security, 
violating their privacy agreements. It goes on to say that these are 
all preventative measures - has anyone seen Minority Report? This is 
the access hub for the Total Information Awareness Network.

SECTION 321 authorizes foreign governments to spy on the American 
people and to share information with foreign governments.

SECTION 322 removes Congress from the extradition process and allows 
officers of the Homeland Security complex to extradite American 
citizens anywhere they wish. It also allows Homeland Security to 
secretly take individuals out of foreign countries.

SECTION 402 is titled "Providing Material Support to Terrorism." The 
section reads that there is no requirement to show that the 
individual even had the intent to aid terrorists.

SECTION 403 expands the definition of weapons of mass destruction to 
include any activity that affects interstate or foreign commerce.

SECTION 404 makes it a crime for a terrorist or "other criminals" to 
use encryption in the commission of a crime.

SECTION 408 creates "lifetime parole" (basically, slavery) for a 
whole host of crimes.

SECTION 410 creates no statute of limitations for anyone that engages 
in terrorist actions or supports terrorists. Remember: any crime is 
now considered terrorism under the first Patriot Act.

SECTION 411 expands crimes that are punishable by death. Again, they 
point to Section 802 of the first Patriot Act and state that any 
terrorist act or support of terrorist act can result in the death 

SECTION 421 increases penalties for terrorist financing. This section 
states that any type of financial activity connected to terrorism 
will result to time in prison and $10-50,000 fines per violation.

SECTIONS 427 sets up asset forfeiture provisions for anyone engaging 
in terrorist activities. There are many other sections that I did not 
cover in the interest of time. The American people were shocked by 
the despotic nature of the first Patriot Act. The second Patriot Act 
dwarfs all police state legislation in modern world history. (Many 
thanks to Alex Jones for this important list and research).

The only remaining question for American people is whether Executive 
Orders, and acts such as the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act 
and the Patriot Act II are imposed "in case of crisis," or whether 
they are created as part of a pre-determined decision to dismantle 
Constitutional America. And either way, is this how we want to live?

Carefully consider all the above. Carefully consider the fact that 
the American military has been out of the country for nearly 100 
years, fighting foreign battles. And carefully consider that most of 
the Executive Orders were written prior to 9-11, and that the first 
Patriot Act was immediately passed following 9-11 without Congress 
having access to the contents of the Act. Something is terribly 
wrong, and my greatest fear is that American people will never have 
another opportunity for a national vote. It would appear that other 
plans are in the making.

Are We, the People, the Enemy?

By Nancy Levant
January 23, 2006
Well, our "elected" are certainly not listening to us, and that is 
quite a dilemma. For the last several years, every time I wrote to 
Congress and expressed my concerns for things like the Patriot Act, 
CAFTA, the Endangered Species Act, etc., I get responses that 1) 
don't address any of the points I made in my letters, and 2) I am 
told in no uncertain terms why the Patriot Act, CAFTA, and other 
legislation will be (and was) supported. One of my reps actually had 
the nerve to say that CAFTA was needed to be fair to the Third World. 
What about the world of the American family and the world that you 
are paid to represent?

I've seen at least 100 letters from reps, which circulate on the 
Internet, also proving that we are not being listened to and our 
opinions not taken into account. I think it is clear to say that 
government by the people has become a clichι, for it is certainly not 
a point of fact or law anymore. Our elected are demonstrating a 
regime change mentality in action and deed. Let's look at some facts:

Anti-American and anti-Constitution legislation is regularly 

Mis-named legislation further hides anti-American, anti-liberty 
agendas (New Freedom Initiative, for example).

Most new federal laws and Executive Orders are now a direct result of 
U.N. Agenda 21.

Most new federal laws and Executive Orders are now a direct result of 
centralizing power around the mandates of the World Bank, the World 
Trade Organization, environmental "non-profits," and the United 

Most legislation now attempts to eliminate Constitutional rights.

Many bills are now written in preparation of what is clearly a coming 
Police State, which speaks volumes to the notion of pre-planned 
catastrophe and crisis.

Decades of presidential Executive Orders have defined the rules, 
regulations, and hierarchy of a highly defined Police State and 
Martial Law system, which again speaks to pre-conceived knowledge of 
impending catastrophe or crisis – most written prior to 2001.

30+ years of meetings held in foreign countries to lay out the game 
plan for global corporate governance.

Think tanks and global elites planning the future of the United 
States without the knowledge, consent, or vote of the American people.

Pharmaceutical companies given legislated invasion powers over the 
future of American children and over the authority of parenthood.

The U.N. Agenda 21, environmental "non-profits," and international 
corporations dictating all American public school curriculum.

The U.N. Agenda 21, environmental organizations, and international 
think tanks redefining and writing a new and global AND enforced 

Global governmental collection of DNA samples and legislated DNA 

Governmentally enforced open borders and illegal immigration.

Governmentally enforced partnership-stakeholding bureaucracy, whereby 
eliminating voting power and elected representation.

Purposeful legislation and Executive Orders that criminalize the 
right to dissent.

The clear and present danger of representatives who are not listening 
to or representing the will of the American people.

The clear and present danger of the American military being forced 
into 50+ years of foreign service, whereby removing our military from 
the American homeland.

Legislated rights given to "corporation," while eliminating 
Constitutional rights of the people.

Dismantling the United States Constitution without the opinion, 
consent, knowledge, or vote of the American people.

And these are just a few of the facts – the ones that are obvious. 
God only knows what is hidden and on the burner. It would appear that 
we are living amidst a renegade and conquering system, and so my 
question is this – what happens when they (not us) pass the Patriot 
Act II? Will the millions who have spoken out against this renegade 
system be jailed? Will our computers be confiscated? Will our ability 
to drive a car and to have mobility rights be denied in 2008 when the 
Real ID system is enforced?

Will we be denied jobs, paychecks, food and water? What is in store 
for all those who stood up for the Constitution of the United States, 
for freedom, and for their rights? Who will live in America's 
detention camps? 

What will happen to the people who refuse to allow the United States 
of America to be dismantled and globalized under a one world global 
government? What will happen to Quaker and Mennonite families who 
refuse to participate and serve in foreign armies? What will happen 
to conscientious objects that refuse to serve under the U.N.?

What will happen to American parents who refuse to allow the public-
private partnerships of government, such as the public school system, 
and big pharma to force drugs into their children? Are American 
citizens to be jailed for fighting for the survival of their nation, 
or are we to sit quietly by while we are openly, brazenly, conquered 
from within? Will a largely senior citizen movement, who worked to 
expose insider devotion to a regime change, be arrested as traitors 
to a global government?

We have all wondered about these issues. We have all talked about 
these questions. Perhaps it is time to put these questions to our 
representatives and to our President. Does disagreeing with their 
legislation, which is not the will of the people, mean that we have 
become terrorists, as John Ashcroft once boldly stated? Are the 
people of the United States of America the enemy of our so-called 
representative government? And is there any elected official in the 
United States of America willing to answer these questions? 

Sadly, the answer to that question is no, they will not. Do tell...

Erecting a Police State in America - A Very Bad Plan

By Nancy Levant
January 23, 2006
As a response to 911, our elected representatives have given to the 
American people, via many statutes, The Department of Homeland 
Security - a civilian agency. They have also broadened the national 
powers and militarized FEMA.

Equally, C.O.P.S. (Community Oriented Policing Services) has been 
massively and federally funded to set up private policing patrols in 
most, if not all, of the new deed-restricted and "planned" 
communities where many American citizens now live. These policed 
communities are being raised in every state in the nation – rapidly.

City and county law enforcement are now required to cross-train with 
military, and those lines have now blurred. All across our nation, 
para-military forces, including foreign troops at our Southern 
border, are performing practice drills – over and over and over again.

A full-blown Martial Law system, which includes the "suspension" of 
the Constitution of the United States, has been set into stone by 
presidential Executive Orders. Most of these orders were declared 
prior to 911, but for the sake of this article, we will overlook that 
fact for now.

Without question, our elected representatives have rapidly erected 
plans for a police state in our nation. Now, let's assume that their 
decisions to raise a paramilitary police state in the United States 
of America are merely a response to 911. For now, we will also 
overlook the thousands upon thousands of treaties, charters, 
compacts, and "partnership" bureaucracies that were signed and 
implemented behind our backs – the ones with direct links to the 
United Nations, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, and the 
Organization of American States, for example. However, we will put 
all of this aside for now.

But let's get to the issue of homeland security, as in securing our 
form of government and the freedoms guaranteed to the people of the 
50 United States. Post 911, our elected representatives raised a new 
homeland security system, which includes full-blown and documented 
plans for 1) the suspension of our Constitution, 2) military rule of 
the nation, and 3) a national populace stripped of their civil 
rights – all of them.

With this in mind, I suggest to you the following:

Our elected have no authority whatsoever, explicit or implicit, to 
plan for the suspension of our Constitutional form of government, as 
they are sworn by oath, and by the income we pay them, to its 
upholding and defense.

Martial Law in the United States of America will result in 
unthinkable and unintended consequences.

That organizing a paramilitary system, with powers to suspend 
Constitutional authority and government is, at best, detrimental to 
the nation, its people, and a very shortsighted and dangerous plan.

Should a police state ensue, it will result in permanent and sweeping 
societal and governmental changes. All nations that lost their 
governmental structures, and citizens who lost all civil rights due 
to military take-over, never woke up one sunny, magical morning and 
found their governments and rights restored. If in doubt, I refer you 
to South and Central America for the results of paramilitary take-

No American citizen, including some in office, wants Martial Law, a 
police state, and military dictatorship EVEN IF there IS another 911, 
or worse. In fact, that would be the worst thing that could possibly 
happen. Stay with me and I will tell you why.

Our elected representatives have not exercised clear, Constitutional 
authority by planning for, much less erecting, a full-blown police 
state, and with the full intention of suspending our nation's 

Is there a homeland security problem? Yes, indeed, there is. Have our 
representatives devised an emergency response system that has 
enormous potential for unthinkable consequences? Yes, they certainly 
have. On this point, I am in total agreement with the ACLU. 

So, the question begs – why would our elected representatives make 
unconstitutional decisions to raise a new national security system 
that is fraught with danger BEFORE using their Constitutional 
authority, which not only permits them to LEGALLY defend against 
violations of law, insurrections, and/or invasions, but is clearly 
defined within the Constitution, as well? When our Constitution 
contains an amendment, as well as Article I, Section 8, Clauses 15 
and 16, which were written SPECIFICALLY to address homeland security 
due to violations of law, insurrections, and/or invasions, and 
specific instructions on how to defend and protect all of the states 
in the nation, why did our representatives completely ignore this 
amendment and instead step wholly out of their legal authority to 
devise a police/military dictatorship? Excuse me, but planning to 
destroy our Constitution and our national independence is a criminal 
act. No one inside of government or otherwise has the legal authority 
to devise such a plan. 

When our elected representatives are employing inappropriate and 
dangerous means, of any kind, that could result in a police state, 
which they devised, they are acting outside of any legal authority 
AND they are not following their LEGAL book of instructions for 
securing the homeland. Usurping the governmental structure of this 
nation by erecting a police state is not only fundamentally 
destructive; it is also a criminal act in this nation. Law is law.

So, to our representatives, I say this: Instead of illegally 
shredding the Constitution, how about using the document you swore to 
uphold to secure this nation – if that is, indeed, your intent. 
Planning and erecting a dictatorship in the United States, using 
synthetic and "what if" scenarios and hysteria to do so, is beyond 
stupid. Equally, you are affirmatively destroying the structure that 
employs you. Your shortsightedness is, frankly, astounding! Equally 
astounding is your refusal to look to the Constitution for answers, 
assuming you are looking for answers. 

Now, to my readers, as WE are law-abiding people, we, too, must look 
to our Constitution for homeland security. But first, let's look at 
some historical parallels to our current condition, which serve to 
clarify our current and terribly vulnerable condition, thanks to our 
elected and their gun controlling means and methods.

Consider the French and Indian Wars. During those times, 
many "enemies" of the settlers were unknown entities and potentially 
anywhere and everywhere. Colonists had to deal with the international 
war between the French and English, which drew them into a rather 
irregular war, and they also had to deal with Tory and Indian bands, 
which were more akin to today's terrorism-style conflicts. Those wars 
were a mix of undeclared conflicts and a declared war, but more akin 
to "terrorism" threats. People had to be prepared for just about 
anything, at any time, and attack by multiple means and numbers. Then 
consider the Revolutionary War, which immediately followed, a 
declared and international war. The founding fathers of the United 
States were very familiar with both the French and Indian conflicts 
AND declared and international warfare. These men had experienced and 
seen it all. And this is specifically why they worded the 2nd 
Amendment to the Constitution as follows:

"A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free 
State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be 

Now, the founding fathers of this nation, having had experience with 
undeclared and declared conflicts and wars, specifically placed 
homeland security powers and authority into the hands of the each of 
the states' militias, which were not only necessary to the security 
of each state, but were also MANDATORY. Via the Colonial and State 
Militia Acts of that time, every male between the ages of 16 and 60 
were REQUIRED to be in service to the defense of their states and, if 
necessary, their nation.

The right of the people to keep and bear arms was absolutely 
understood by the founding fathers as necessary to the "security" 
of "free" states. Therefore, a "free state" is one in which the 
population of that state is always armed IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN that 
state's security. This is not rocket science. Reinstate the 
Constitutional definition of "militias," which were organizations 
specifically created to protect the homeland using a fully armed 
population, and you have homeland security. But how, you ask?

As with most historical perversions, the word "militia" now denotes 
something entirely different to the minds of American people. We now 
believe militias to be radical, fringe-type groups. However, from a 
Constitutional point of fact and law, the "Militia of several States" 
meant every male person, age 16 to 60, was required by law to 1) have 
adversary-worthy weapons in his home, maintained in proper working 
order and subject to inspection, and 2) a proper store of ammunition, 
and other accoutrements that were necessary to defend his city, state 
and/or nation.

Let me make this as plain as I can – The 2nd Amendment to the 
Constitution of the United States of America states that a well-
regulated Militia is NECESSARY to the SECURITY of a free state, and 
therefore the defined Militia is to be 1) a fully armed population, 
2) with arms and ammunitions in ALL homes, and 3) is NOT an option 
but a LEGAL DUTY of ALL male citizens. The right to keep and bear 
arms is, therefore, 1) an absolute, and 2) applies to all free male 
citizens, according to our 2nd Amendment (there are/were exceptions – 
most do not apply today being related to the legal ownership of 

According to our purposefully ignored 2nd Amendment, which has also 
been politically perverted into a keep and bear-only mentality, the 
actual meaning of the 2nd Amendment IS homeland security. Consider 
the following: Imagine if America, today, had an entirely armed 
population, as did our Colonial ancestors in every state. Every man 
on every street is armed with standard, military issue weapons. Now, 
let us then consider how we would feel about our natural right of 
resistance and self-preservation to restrain the violence of ANY type 
of oppression, insurrection, or invasion.

The 2nd Amendment not only provides our elected representatives with 
a homeland security book of instructions, it also explains, 
explicitly, that in order to have freedom AND security 
simultaneously, a well-regulated Militia is "NECESSARY." For any 
insurrections, you call up the Militia, which is every man, in any 
state, or in any neighborhood, on-call, every day of every year, and 

And again I say to the careerists in office, the Constitution solves 
the problem of securing the homeland. Not one of you can question the 
fact that a Militia is necessary to the security of a free state. The 
need for the reinstatement of the Militia of the several states is 
not an obscure fantasy. It is a conclusion of fact and law that the 
Constitution has adopted, and therefore applies to every public 
official. No public official can deny this conclusion, because every 
public official has taken an "oath or affirmation to support this 

In conclusion, I ask all gun-owning readers to please forward this 
article to your gun clubs and associations. I would like to see the 
NRA, the GOA, the NFA, the AFA, and all other gun associations take 
the lead and initiative to revisit what actually may have been the 
founding intent of their organizations. We need to lobby all state 
legislatures to introduce bills to reinstate the states' militias 
according to the 2nd Amendment and the current state of American 
affairs. We the People have the legal right to raise the 
Constitutional Militia in each and every one of our states, and the 
proper way to do so is legislatively. The language of the 
Constitution will not be undermined. Nor is it up for 
reinterpretation by anyone. Legality is on our side.

We also know that ANY gun control, whatsoever, goes directly contrary 
to our 2nd Amendment rights SPECIFICALLY due to the fact that 
homeland security IS a dire fact of today's world, and SPECIFICALLY 
due to the raising of a police state, which WILL disarm the public in 
order to succeed. You've heard the term "Gun-Free Zones?" How about 
Defense-Free Zones, or for that matter, how about a totally disarmed 
nation other than those in the police state? Have you ever heard the 
legal term "badge of slavery?" Disarmament is the first badge of 

Also, what is the point of winning the battle against "terrorism" 
overseas if we lose the battle at home? Considering the absence of 
American troops from American soil for the last 100 years, what other 
option to homeland security is viable? Equally, and as history relays 
in one police state after another, usurpers and tyrants initiate 
criminal activities via secret-police-style apparatuses, spying, 
intelligence and investigatory agencies. Resistance networks tend to 
get "broken up" prior to armed force and public displays of the 
actual police state itself.

I would rather see America LEGALLY defended by her citizens than by a 
foreign/domestic-hybrid paramilitary force created by careerists and 
bureaucrats, who have unconstitutionally and illegally erected police 
state infrastructures all across the United States of America – and 
to what purpose and end only the globalists know, for now. 

It's time to take back our government and our Constitutional right 
and DUTY to defend our Constitution and constitutionally guaranteed 
freedoms. We have every legal right to do so, and our 2nd Amendment 
mandates that Militias of the several States (meaning every one of 
our states) be raised to secure this nation. Assuming the boys on the 
Hill will not be so inclined, we must demand that all of our states 
comply with the mandates of the 2nd Amendment. They cannot legally 
refuse to do so as they are subordinate to the Constitution and its 
2nd Amendment. 

For help in reinstating the Constitutional Militia via your state 
legislatures, contact Dr. Edwin Vieira via The 
answer to our vulnerability and our security is very simple and very 
absolute. Tyrants, usurpers with armies, and foreign terrorists are 
no match for a nationally armed population. The answer is so simple 
and clear. America must remain free and sovereign America. Therefore, 
you arm the full citizenry to secure freedom, as instructed by the 
2nd Amendment. This IS homeland security.

We live in an environment inundated by ignorance and disinformation. 
Therefore, it is understandable why we have lacked for so long any 
social solidarity or sense of mutual reliance upon each other as 
American people. We have been purposefully, covertly, divided into 
paranoid separatist groups via the liberal/conservative, young/old, 
religion and pigmentation divide mechanisms. I suggest that being a 
part of your state's militia will help you to remember that you are 
an American, with rights and freedom first and foremost, and that 
your neighbors – all of them – have and are the same. 

We need to be united once more as a nationality that is based upon 
free people and THEIR government. We have to be united, because 1) a 
police state cannot possibly exist under the Constitution, but is 
being planned nonetheless, and 2) by defining "homeland security" as 
a centralized bureaucratic apparatus that interlinks intelligence 
agencies, police departments and programs, community special forces, 
FEMA, technological surveillance and databases, and the Armed Forces, 
Congress has evaded its DUTY "to call forth the Militia, as mandated 
by Article I, Section 8, Clauses 15 and 16 of the Constitution, to 
execute the LAWS of the Union, to suppress Insurrections and repel 
Invasions." Instead they have invented and erected an anti-
constitutional infrastructure for Martial Law, military take-over, 
and a police state. This was a remarkably stupid thing to do.

For all of you who have asked ten thousand times what you can do – 
this is it. I suggest you begin with your gun associations and Dr. 
Edwin Vieira via We have to get bills introduced 
into the state legislatures to reinstate the Militias of the several 

In understanding your Constitutional rights and obligations, the true 
power (and duty) to understand the Constitutional Militia lies in 
Article I, Section 8, Clauses 15 and 16. The 2nd Amendment emphasizes 
the importance of these clauses because its statement that "a well 
regulated Militia [is] necessary to the security of a free State" 
ties down the interrelationship so well, and binds all public 
officials to accept, follow, and implement it – no questions asked. 
But, as a matter of law, the Militia do not depend on the 2nd 
Amendment. Even if there were no 2nd Amendment, the powers/duties of 
the Militia would be the same. We're getting smarter every day! Now 
let's get the job done! We need the help and power of our gun 
associations, and we need them now. Start emailing, calling, and 
forwarding. Also refer them to Dr. Edwin Vieira for guidance.

The Goon Show of Bush and Bin Laden

Let's see now: President dropping in the polls; impeachment talk over 
illegal wiretaps gaining traction; majority of Americans now 
supporting withdrawal from Iraq; Abramoff scandal reaching into the 
White House; big push starting for war with Iran; the Bush gang 
reduced to defending their crime, deception and despotism with their 
last, threadbare card, the "terrorist threat".....

Why, yes, I think it's about time for a guest shot from Osama!

And so the deadly symbiosis between that dynamic, death-peddling duo, 
Bush and bin Laden, goes on. And as usual, the timing -- even the 
wording -- of the terrorist's bloviation falls, with eerie 
perfection, into lock-step with Bush's political needs. As noted 
above, the only way Bush can justify his now-open establishment of a 
de facto dictatorship -- arbitrary rule by "the unitary executive" -- 
is by the constant, hysterical invocation of a terrorist threat. To 
meet this threat, to preserve "our way of life," says Bush, we must 
shred all of our inherent liberties, our inalienable rights, our 
constitutional freedoms, our centuries-old system of checks and 
balances; we must give all power to the Leader, who will protect the 
only thing that matters: our skin. This is of course a cynical and 
absurd argument; no terrorist attack, no matter how massive, could 
destroy the American republic. This can only be done from the inside -
- and only by the deliberate choice of those in power. At every turn, 
the Bush gang has sought to instil a blind, quaking, automatic fear 
in the American people, so that when they hear the word "terror," 
they jump to the Boss's tune, they run for cover and burn the 
Constitution to keep them warm in their hidey-hole. It's been a 
remarkable exercise, really: the attempt to create a polity of 

And if there is another terrorist attack in the United States -- as 
there certainly will be, given the fact that the Bushists 
deliberately allowed bin Laden to escape capture at Tora Bora in 2001 
(more on this topic here next week), and have swelled the terrorist 
ranks with their murderous war in Iraq -- the last vestiges, the last 
pretenses of American civil rights and individual liberty will be 
stripped away. The people have long been inculcated with this idea, 
from top Bushists such as General Tommy Franks: if there is another 
terrorist attack in the "Homeland," then "the Constitution might be 
suspended." This is now the "conventional wisdom," a widely accepted 
notion -- despite there being no reason for such an action 
whatsoever. Yet the militarist-corporatist faction now represented by 
the Bushists -- which has long dreamed of suspending the civic order 
and ruling by decree and martial law, and has in fact been planning 
for this eventuality for decades -- will doubtless seize the day when 
the next attack comes. As Bush himself said just days after the 
September 11 attacks, when the bodies of the dead were still 
compacted with the smoking ruins of the Twin Towers: "Through my 
tears, I see opportunity."

So here we are. The dictatorship is now in the open, as the Justice 
Department's tortured "defense" of Bush's high crime of arbitrary 
spying this week proves once again. Like the "signing statement" that 
eviscerated the much ballyhooed "anti-torture bill," the latest load 
of cringing mendacity from that most servile minister, Attorney 
General Al Gonzales, again confirms the Bushist principle that the 
president is simply above the law: there is nothing he cannot do, no 
crime he cannot order in the exercise of his "plenary powers." But 
despite this naked display of apish chest-thumping -- "Me top monkey! 
You do me homage! You pick my fleas, bring me best fruit!" -- there 
are disturbed rumblings amongst the rabble. Recent polls show a 
majority of Americans support impeachment if it is proved that Bush 
ordered wiretaps without a court order. (The proof is copious, of 
course; and indeed, the criminal act is openly admitted by Bush.) A 
majority of Americans believe the Iraq war is a mistake and want the 
troops withdrawn. The new Medicare fiasco -- which has seen 
multitudes of the sick and old suffering needlessly -- will further 
embitter large swathes of the people against their cruel and 
rapacious masters.

What then can save the Leader? What can preserve, enhance and extend 
the power of his faction to carry on God's work (which naturally 
overrides any puny restrictions of human law)? What can keep the 
machine grinding forward, and keep the money rolling in? Only fear. 
Only cowardice. Only terror -- terror from without to justify the 
terror from within.

So terror is what we are going to get. I've written of this symbiosis 
many times, and a conclusion once drawn years ago is even more true 
today: Dazed by the lure of loot and glory, hamstrung by their own 
wilful ignorance of the complexities of history and human nature, the 
third-rate thugs of the Bush Regime have entered into a collaboration 
with the equally dazed, equally ignorant bin Laden mafia. Each gang 
draws meaning and justification from the other, each cloaks its own 
criminality and murder in the guise of a crusade against the other's 
evil. And both draw their power and profit from the same unrenewable 
natural resource:

The blood of innocent people.
