The Party Won... Again    by Bill Huff

SO WHAT! BIG DEAL! GET BACK TO WORK!

As it turns out, Obama didn't need to suspend habeas corpus and declare martial law to prevent another election. America was dumb enough to re-elect him, OR, he had all of the "necessary" help and support. In other words, it is quite correct to say he is the Chosen One. But by Whom? Stalin wouldn't have been surprised. Why are we? Oh Dear! Oh Dear! Now what do we do?

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it. The event of yesterday was one of those kind of alarms which is just sufficient to rouse us to duty, without being of consequence enough to depress our fortitude. It is not a field of a few acres of ground, but a cause, that we are defending, and whether we defeat the enemy in one battle, or by degrees, the consequences will be the same." - Thomas Paine in "American Crisis."

There are only two parties, as Jefferson so precisely stated:

1. Those who fear and distrust the people, and wish to draw all powers from them into the hands of the higher classes...

2. Those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence in them, cherish and consider them as the most honest and safe, although not  the most wise depositary of the public interests.     Please review my earlier article: "We're All Party Animals."

It is so interesting to notice that Jefferson had nailed down the rhetoric of our two most recent presidential candidates as well. Of course they were both being disingenuous. Realize Obama's base dysfunctionally wanted to believe he was more like #2 and Romney's base would identify more with the elitist and/or martial tones in #1. In reality they are both elitists. When you contrast what they are saying with all it will take to get government back into its Constitutional bounds you know they must be pathological liars, brainwashed, political hacks, or ego/megalomaniacs.

They are not telling the whole truth about anything of consequence. They do not debate. They schmooze. Do we really have to wait a few years and see Romney and Obama riding off on the same golf cart to realize they were already joined at the hip?

The solution is not to be found in the electoral process. We can prove this every day as they [our entire political class] constantly violate their oaths with very few remarkable exceptions. You get a chance every two years to replace 1/3 of the Senators and all of the Representatives. But you need to be rid of most of them immediately. There are not enough voices left to force crucial issues into the media and public debate. And the media are prostituted with only a few holdouts remaining.

Those who are aware, alert, awake, and astute, the best informed among us, realize it doesn't get easier from here - until and unless we return to first principles.

Surprise, surprise, you were never supposed to be able to vote for anything that was unlawful. That is, if something was a crime for an individual it would still be unlawful even if the franchise were perverted to grant it through the auspices of "government." READ YOUR BASTIAT.

For years U.S. Representative Ron Paul has been called “Dr. No” by his detractors for consistently rejecting each and every Bill he has viewed as unconstitutional, unlawful or unwise. But after all this time that invective is seen by his supporters as a badge of honor. The Constitution and Ron Paul are becoming more familiar to Americans as Ron's wisdom enters the vernacular of Americans of all ages, sexes and conditions, who still love Liberty. Could America be ready to have a man of such character and faithfulness in the White House? Have we learned some bitter lessons? Is Liberty the Answer?

...a long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defence of custom. But tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason... - Thomas Paine in “Common Sense”

More than anyone else Ron Paul is defining this election cycle.

“Common-sense, Constitutional government,” didn't make as much sense to many Americans as they had their first look at Ron Paul during the 2008 campaign. But just a few wars, and a few bailouts later, and they seem to be coming around to Ron's old fashioned ideas for peaceful and economical solutions. If you listen carefully you'll hear even President Obama, noticeably adjusting his rhetoric, waxing a little more Paulish. Ron Paul's rustic, Constitutional views seemed alien. But not any more. The status quo dies hard. Just ask Galileo. But Ron Paul persists.

Ron Paul's Trillions
by Bill Huff

Remember the Richard Prior comedy, “Brewster's Millions?” Here's a brief summary:

A minor league baseball player has to waste [HE MUST HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT] $30m in 30 days in order to inherit $300m; however he's not allowed to tell anyone about the $300m deal. Source.

See the Trailer Here.

Please take 1 minute and 25 seconds to review the trailer above and consider Brewster as a Metaphor for Government; spending Trillions and Trillions, missing Trillions more, and asking for Trillions more, as they turn a blind eye to the Federal Reserve Banksters who continue to pilfer us. Or, worse yet, they plan the demise of our Republic with the aid and support of the Banksters, Wall Street, and the Military Industrial Complex.

How do they all get so rich on such small salaries? I bet Mr. Gingrich could explain.

As a Classical Libertarian I am less concerned about how they make their surpluses than I am about how they waste the substance of the People without Constitutional Authority. Enforce the Fundamental Law and the symptoms will be gradually dispelled. Ron Paul understands this principle. Why do you think he keeps chipping away at Behemoth?

The Power to Audit is the Power to Destroy the FED

So what happens on Day One of the FED Audit?
by William Huff

Imagine a twisted dystopic variation on It’s a Wonderful Life, where Jimmy Stewart’s character has turned all the way to the Dark Side for the FED. You will remember the scene, where, after the crash of 1929 is under way, the customers of the Bailey Brothers Building & Loan crowd into the lobby to withdraw everything they have deposited in order to get through Roosevelt’s Bank Holiday. Imagine Evil George [played by Ben Bernanke] now a “made man” for Henry F. Potter [played by Alan Greenspan] trying to pacify them:

"You're thinking of this place all wrong. As if we had the money back in a safe. The money's not here. The money is not really anywhere. And yet, in a certain sense, the money is everywhere. If something really bad happens, or if we think something bad is going to happen, we just create more. We can create money to make anything good happen any time we want. When we want less money we just destroy some. None of the rules that apply to auditing can apply here in anything but a virtual sense. We have achieved the perfect blend of Patriotism and Secrecy. We never abuse our power – and we don’t just exist to protect and support any powerful elite or anyone on Wall Street. The money we create from nothing is only used for the common good. There are no unintended consequences. Of course we cannot have other entities creating money out of nothing. That would be chaotic, and, besides, it’s against the law. Now… if you don’t want to start some sort of panic, or cause economic disruptions, you’ll just go away and act as though we were, and still are, the best command and control for the economy. Just trust us. Get all of that nonsense about the Rule of Law and the Constitution out of your heads. The Founding Fathers would have had no idea of how to run a modern country. So stop reading all of their wordy diatribes against fiat money and central banks… Now that I have explained everything you can all settle down and go back to wherever you came from, your houses, your apartments, your tenements, your homeless shelters, whatever, and go on with your life. I’m so glad we had this opportunity to clear everything up. Remember… we can get through this thing all right. We've got to stick together, though. We've got to have faith in each other. Remember what the President said: 'The only thing we have to fear is Fear Itself.' Click here for Part 2 of FDR’s Banking Holiday Pitch."

In Part 2, linked above at about 5 minutes and 30 seconds into the audio, FDR said, the “Confidence of the People” was “more important than Gold.” Think about it.

The FED must resist all penetration for as long as it possibly can. They love their power, prestige and perks. There will have to be some kicking and screaming. Even the mention of any alternative to their financial monopoly must be suppressed, and has been effectively suppressed since 1913. If you think you know something about government waste and corruption just wait until we get into the Audit of the FED. Perhaps the FED should be required to have signs like McDonald’s in front of every member bank that say “Federal Reserve Bank - Trillions and Trillions Missing.”

What’s it really like on the inside?

Gambling Away Your Liberty
by William Huff

It was not meant to be. It is not lawfully the case. But government IS a gambling enterprise. Without an accurate risk/benefit analysis you may never know how to cut your losses - when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. You might even exhibit symptoms of gambling addiction as most political partisans do. As government becomes more and more corrupt the gambling metaphor becomes more accurate and useful. If we voluntarily combine to delegate certain powers or authorities in order to protect our remaining rights, we are taking a chance on the integrity of someone else. This has not always worked out well. Power has often corrupted - and absolute power… well, you know! We have now reached the lesser of two tyrants phase with this election cycle. What a crapshoot!

What do Deepak Chopra, the Dalai Lama, and the Pope, have in common?

According to a report by Michael Lollar of GoMemphis.com, Deepak Chopra says they should all be ‘Human Shields’ now that we don’t have John and Yoko! Curiouser and curiouser the world gets:

“Deepak Chopra, the doctor who is bringing his brand of East-meets-West philosophy to Memphis, proposed Wednesday that the Pope, the Dalai Lama and himself serve as human shields to avoid bombing in Iraq and to rid the world of Saddam Hussein.”

It’s the part about 'ridding the world of Saddam Hussein' that I don’t quite get. I don’t remember any mention of the requisite skills in the resumes of these three 'luminaries.'

We have reached critical mass in Orwellian terms when the President can ‘name’ a ‘Patriot’ ‘Czar.’ Be careful not to raise any eyebrows Comrades! I suppose presidents can do anything they choose? Where would the 'Czar' provision be in the Constitution? Are American Czars confirmed by the Senate - or is it the Duma?

I have often wondered at the title of ‘Czar’ being conferred upon a government servant in this Constitutional Republic. Just what  message is ‘W’ trying to convey to those amongst us who might not be as excited as our next door neighbors about the fact that we are engaged in a ‘War.’

I wonder... with his record, is there anything William Bennett is not willing to become Czar over?

If you were Saddam, do you think you might find some advantage in training ordinary citizens to keep and bear arms? More interestingly, have you considered how dangerous it might be for a ‘tyrant’ to go around passing out weapons to men, women and children?

Never mind that citizens in our country are willingly surrendering their God-given rights in exchange for government ‘protection’ or ‘benefits’ - a Bowl of Pottage!

It seems major media has made another faux pas by printing and broadcasting widely that Bill Clinton is demanding an apology from Congressional Republicans for his Impeachment. Actually his words fell short of that, but implied it nevertheless. The Parser-in-Chief is at it again. Bill is only ‘Slick’ because the American public is somewhat less so. Our sense of smell has been dulled by decades of corruption. Does Bill Clinton ever know when he is telling the truth?

I just read some other apologetics in an article feigning ‘moral’ outrage at the Republicans for ‘making a mountain out of a molehill’ by impeaching Bill Clinton for his ‘sexual pranks with Monica Lewinsky.’ Public Adultery in the Oval Office is now a 'prank.' All Fraternities please take note!

‘I have a dream that one day...’ the President of the United States, as well as the Congress and the supreme Court will all voluntarily limit themselves to activities within the strict bounds of the Constitution. This would be the best government according to such giants as Jefferson and Madison. What would happen if the President picked up his Mickey Mouse phone and found that it would only connect to those he has Constitutional authority to direct, and that it was supervised by software that would terminate his call whenever his language contemplated exceeding his lawful authority?

According to Mr. Bartlett of quote-gathering fame, Sir John Harrington once stated, "Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason."

While ‘U.S. Authorities’ try to decide what to do with John Walker, a ‘Taliban fighter’ of ‘Native [not aboriginal]’ American descent, we hear little in the major media regarding the Constitutional Paradox that is staring us in the face: Without a lawful war, how can you prosecute ‘Treason’ lawfully speaking?

When you ‘need’ a war, and you are in a terrible rush, there may be some loose ends. Perhaps John Walker’s dilemma will provide us with yet another object lesson from those who continue to try finding new and creative ways around our Constitution. It is my hope that Americans will be impressed once again with our desperate need to study and competently enforce our Constitution BEFORE we suffer ultimate national embarrassment.

American Government, so-called, is already in Gross Material Breach of the Constitution.

You are living under an Outlaw government. All three branches are operating outside their Constitutional authority. If you don’t know this, you probably don’t know a whole lot about the Constitution or law. Ignorance can be cured. Bear with me. I am still working on mine.

In ‘Black’s Law, the Third Edition,’ we read that a ‘Breach of Duty’ is ‘... any violation or omission of any covenant agreed to be performed. More particularly, the neglect or failure to fulfill in a just and proper manner the duties of an office or fiduciary appointment...’ The Constitution is our Covenant of government. It is being Breached every day by all three Branches - often in collusion.

Orwell was an optimist!

We have now distorted the language to the point that Kofi can accept an award after explaining why no one should receive it, and then insist that the UN is the solution to all of the world's woes. God help us! Apparently no one else can or will!

The UN knows nothing of your God-given unalienable rights. Mark that down! There is nothing American about the UN. Mark that down!

READ FOR YOUR LIFE!

Read the Declaration of Independence, the U.S Constitution and the Federalist Papers and compare them to the UN Charter. This is not a difficult task but it will empower you and hopefully awaken your sensibilities to the approaching danger of a consolidated global government void of original American principles.

What did Kofi actually say?

Perhaps the 'honor' should go to Condoleeza Rice for popularizing one of George W. Bush’s dyslexically coined words. At any rate, I recently read her words using this new term to describe the ‘new’ administration policy with regard to ‘terrorism’ and Saddam Hussein. The new policy has been dubbed by Dubya: “Preemption.”

Thankfully, Bill Gates has provided me with a marvelous Thesaurus that I often use to make cursory inquiry into the meaning of a word or to look for a more apt substitute. The Bush Thesaurus is obviously not similarly designed. It has apparent glitches or short circuits. Upon listening to the man speak, I find my brain being jarred from time to time as it searches its archives to determine -- “what in the world is this man talking about?”

Flag sales are up. So are flag thefts. Blind trust for government officials is climbing higher every day. America is at 'War!' There are flags waving everywhere. Even the local drinking hole and every other business are waving flags and putting up signs that proudly proclaim: "God Bless America! Does anyone think it strange that many of those flags being waved to celebrate the latest American Undeclared 'War' are made in China!? Remember the place we used to call RED China? Yes! That's the one!

If God is to bless America when she makes war without lawful cause; and without the Constitutionally required Declaration by the Peoples' Representatives and Senators, we will have no choice but to believe the invocation of the motto "God Bless America" requires not one, but all three words, to be redefined for the 'limited purposes' of this 'war.'
