Our legal system seems to be usurping our rights on every front.  First, it was activist judges ruling according to their own political beliefs and setting legal precedents  (thus ‘legislating from the bench’).

Recently, in Indiana,  Justice Steven David ruled that Indiana citizens have

“no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers. We believe however that a right to resist unlawful police entry is … incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence.” “

Can this be right–a judge has ruled that Indiana citizens do not have the right to resist if police violate their constitutional rights by barging into their home when they wish?

This led to  Newton County Sheriff (Don Hartman) making comments to the effect that he would conduct door to door, warrantless searches if he deemed it necessary!

Let this be a reminder that there are people, especially in law enforcement, who find it . . .  inconvenient . . . for us to have Constitutional rights.  Now that things have started to go their way, they are going to push it as far as they can.

People in Indiana had better treat this like any other type of bullying–fight back and don’t stop until they cry for mercy!  Meaning:  resist, and use every legal means to bring these plans to a halt!

Every time I turn around, I hear of another incursion against our Constitutionally protected rights.  Let me repeat again here–yes, there are threats of terror, etc.  But the case is being overstated, exaggerated and used as a rationale for stripping us of our rights.

As I’ve said in many other posts, I believe America is being judged by God.  Lets remember that the laws our nation was founded upon originated with God, and He wants us to uphold them.  (It’s another matter when the laws of men run counter to the laws of God.)

We have become a nation of law breakers, and we think little of it.  It is no longer a mark of shame to be a felon.  Look at all the celebrities that are, and no one seems to think any less of them!

By becoming lawless, we have disrespected God and opened the door to tyranny.  In large part this growing ‘police state’ is the consequence for our misbehavior.  However, not all of us are misbehaving.  And, as they say, ‘two wrongs don’t make a right’.  Just because the people are not following the law does not make it right for the government to break it too.

We still have (some of) our Constitutional rights, but we are losing them fast.  Those who are creating the police state are using the argument that the Constitution no longer fits the reality of today.   This broad shift to lawlessness, over the past few generations, is making their case for them.  (Notice Judge David’s use of the word ‘modern’, above.)

I see two things that need to happen, and quickly, if we wish to turn this around.

  1. Repent–in other words, do your part to return to behaving lawfully.  Show respect for God’s law.  Don’t only obey when you think you’ll get caught if you don’t.
  2. Resist.  Know your rights and use them.  Patiently and calmly resist tyranny.  Stand on your rights–the ones you voluntarily give up today will be legally taken from you tomorrow.

I’m going to include links to a couple of videos because, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.  I want you to see how the mindset of law enforcement personnel has changed.  Somehow, in the last few years, they have begun to view the American people as an enemy.  From the things I am seeing lately, the attitude appears to be widespread.  It is an attitude that is very confrontational, intimidating, and arrogant.

As you watch these videos (and please do watch them!),  notice the bullying attitude of law enforcement.  Also, please pay careful attention to those who are standing on their rights . . . firmly, but respectfully.

Here are a few notable quotes from the first video.

‘Citizen ignorance of the law sometimes allows police to get away with more than they otherwise would’

‘Not everybody knows what the law is and sometimes not even all the  police officers know what the law is’

‘The unfortunate reality is, often police officers can intimidate people into not doing things they otherwise legally could.’

Eugene Volokh, law professor, UCLA  (http://volokh.com/)

I probably wouldn’t even be writing this post, except that I watched the entire second video last night (2 hours, it moves kind of slowly).  What I saw there is what I want you to see–the relentless attack on our freedom, by police who were standing on their self-vperceived authority, but not standing on the law.  (They forget that the only authority they have is that which is granted by law–and that WE hire them to protect US. )

Even if you disagree with the ideas presented in the second video, I hope that you will watch to see what I am talking about–to see how our rights are being infringed on and how, today in America, people who have different views are being demonized.

(The whole point of the second video is that there are people whose questions are not being answered, who are being ignored, and who deserve compensation for injuries that they are not receiving.  The video shows their quest to be heard.)

Again, back to a very important point made by Eugene Volokh (law professor, UCLA ):

‘The unfortunate reality is, often police officers can intimidate people into not doing things they otherwise legally could.’

Sometimes this is intentional–when police deliberately cause people to believe they have authority backing them up.  I saw a quote from Don Hartman (the Indiana sheriff that wants to do warrantless door to door searches).  His point was that he felt people would be glad to comply if they felt it would help law enforcement find a suspect.

This is sad because it’s true–and because the people we are supposed to be able to trust are deliberately misleading us into surrendering our rights.

Most people would open the door and gladly let them in.  But your Constitutional rights say you don’t have to, unless you are presented with a search warrant.  I advise that you don’t.  Even if you have nothing to hide. 

The issue here is not whether there is something or someone in your home that shouldn’t be.   The issue isn’t about being nice, respectful, and cooperative.  The issue is that law enforcement has become a bully who is now bent on taking away your rights–so you’d better stand your ground!

You may not need to use your 4th Amendment right, but you had better stand on it anyhow–because if everyone starts surrendering it voluntarily, it will make the case that the citizens no longer feel it is relevant, and it will be much easier to legally overturn it.

The other point made, in the first video,  is that some issues (such as who, what, where, and when you may videotape), still have no firm legal precedent.  The way that the law will be written (either to protect our right to videotape, or to deny it) is by having a legal precedent set.  Then lawyers will carry out the debate and a judge will decide.

Legal precedent is set when someone goes to court over an issue–in other words, someone gets in trouble over the issue, and they fight back in court and say they have the right to do what they did.  Then lawyers carry out the debate and a judge  decides. The judge’s decision is usually appealed  and the case then moves higher and higher through the court system until it is finally decided.

So, do not be afraid of getting in trouble for standing your ground.  If the police cannot give you a specific statute that you are violating, or they give you one that you know doesn’t fit the circumstances, stand your ground.  If you do get in trouble, in a case like that there are organizations that will provide your legal defense (I believe it’s usually free), for the opportunity to argue the subject in court in order to set legal precedent.  You can also publicize your case by notifying the media, or organizations that are trying to raise public awareness over the issue.

Remember, this is how bullies work: by intimidation.  (It is the same tactic terrorists use.)  They prey on people’s fears.  The only way to deal with a bully is in the same vein.

Notice, in the videos, that when people stand firm (and have videotape evidence!), the police will retreat to the bounds set for them by the law–but it only seems to happen when people persist in standing their ground.  In other words, they will eventually stop bullying you, when they realize it isn’t going to work and they can’t trap you into doing something wrong.  (I can’t stress enough the importance of being courteous, calm and non-threatening!!)

People, whether we like it or not, things are changing.  Even Amish dairy farmers are being bullied!  Allowing yourself to be intimidated will not buy you peace!  (And there is a name for those who cave to intimidation:  cowards. )

The more you surrender, the more a bully will demand.  If you want to have any freedom and liberty at all, you are going to have to find the courage to stand for what you know is right.

If you aren’t up for the fight, you had better find a big rock to hide you and your family under–and good luck to you.

It used to be that you could just mind your own business and you’d be ok–but times have changed.  This is not a case  of people having confrontation because they ‘went looking for it’, or lived a life that pushed the limits.  Now, confrontation comes to those who are obeying the law and doing things that the Constitution says we have the right to do.

If we don’t stop this in its tracks, it will get worse.  Then you will see the day when confrontation overturns every rock just to find you!

There is a whole group of people that we, in our modern society have ignored, to our own peril. Certain people are just born gatekeepers–watchmen if you will, or whistle blowers.

If you look at our worst disasters, there were people who had been trying to warn us. The 9/11 attacks . . . Bernie Madoff’s ponzi scheme . . . protests against the Vietnam War . . . What about the ‘Green Revolution’, genetically modified crops, exploitation by multinational corporations . . . (oh, I’ll bet you haven’t heard about the results of some of these things, but you will).

Our failure to listen has brought us to where we are now–and there is more to come. We have been ‘sowing bad seed’ for quite awhile. Not all of it has reached fruit-bearing age yet.

Why is it that our society has this blind spot? Certain people are just more tuned in to their intuition, the Spirit of God and/or the ‘collective consciousness’. They are able to forecast trends or see a few steps ahead of the masses.

If a person uses this gift to advance himself by channeling it into creating a business, it rises to the top, they become well-known and we marvel at their foresight. But those who try to use it for the well-being of others, to warn them of impending problems, we label as extremists or nut jobs. Why is this?

One of my theories is that, in our time at least, what they say has tended to conflict with somebody’s bottom line. We have elevated the corporation to the status of a god–and God forbid we should do or say anything that questions the motives, or threatens the intentions of this god!

Capitalism is good, but not perfect. (I am a capitalist too, make no mistake, because I don’t know of a better system. But, in its present form, I think it is completely corrupt–a system that perpetrates greed, exploitation, and corruption.) It is seriously flawed if it operates without ethical oversight.

The reverence and worship for the American Corporation that we hear today, in the words of so many proponents of capitalism, reveals their blind spot, their Achille’s heel if you will. They are under its spell.

Are we starting to see the character of this god yet? Have all the fiascos of the last couple of decades, and especially the last year, not caught our attention? CORRUPT! Without our watchmen at the gates, corruption thrives! Our politicians have long been ‘in bed’ with these multinational corporations (and international banks–just another kind of multinational corporation). Together, they have formed a shadow government that is really in charge of much of the world *.

And who is it that stands to gain the most from silencing the voices of the gatekeepers? The corrupt political/corporate/banking government. They marginalize and discredit the voices of opposition. This is always the way it works–discredit the witness.

But, here is something to consider–what do the parties involved stand to gain? Doesn’t the fact that the gatekeeper/whistleblower has nothing to gain lend him more credibility? Doesn’t the fact that he is willing to speak out, sometimes at GREAT personal risk, lend him even greater credibility? Can we not believe that not everyone can be bought, that not everyone is motivated by greed? No, instead we are suspicious of someone whose motives we can’t uncover.

There IS a certain breed of people, motivated by the desire for justice and the welfare of others! Many people can’t understand such a motivation, and believe it is just a cover for something sinister, or for a mental defect. But most of us respect that calling if it is channeled into a career as a pastor, teacher or social worker!

It is time to wake up and realize that what we have needed has been here all along. Every society has its watchmen. They are legitimate in their calling, and they are our first line of defense–against corruption, tyranny, exploitation, etc., etc, etc. It’s time to seek them out and listen!!

* The Bible refers to this present-day political/corporate/banking government, in Revelation, as ‘Babylon the Great’. Some call it ‘The Whore of Babylon’.

 

It’s Time To Push Back!

America–Hijacked!!

 

 

(Continued from Part 2, ‘Amerika’)

There WILL BE one world government, ruled by the antichrist. I don’t want to see it happen, because I’ve read the end of the book–I KNOW how that turns out! While the Bible spells out much about what will take place, it doesn’t say that America has to be the seat of his power!

Sure, our currency reflects the designs that the freemasons have, for a world government that begins in America–but that is not prophecy! It is a hope, a plan, a goal of some–but God has not decreed it to happen.  America was ordained and established by God.  The plans of the corporate/government/banking alliance are already beginning to unravel–and with them goes the dollar.  How ironic that the design on the back of the dollar, reflecting their grand plan, will instead stand as a testament to failure.  When you oppose God, you lose.

Don’t be fooled by false ‘prophecies’–a prophecy is only as infallible as the one who ordains it! Maybe the Mayans somehow saw the future–or not. Maybe Nostradamus saw what would happen–or not, etc., etc., etc.

The Bible makes it clear that if a prophet is speaking God’s prophecies–he will never be wrong! If he is not 100% right in his prophecies, then they did not come from God. And if it doesn’t claim to be the word of God, then it is not even a prophecy. It is a goal, a hope, a fear, or an opinion!

If you are still not convinced that something new has settled upon our country, that there is a conspiracy unfolding, then look at the alliances Obama is making. He is snubbing our traditional white, imperialist allies and befriending dictators! Sure, you can say he is just trying to ‘establish a dialogue’ with them to bring about resolution to current conflicts–but that is just the cover! In fact, it isn’t even a cover. All of this is happening in plain sight, yet people do not see!

We currently have several world leaders, who have recently seized power from their people–Putin, Chavez, Zelaya. Elected democratically, they then changed the laws, enabling themselves to stay in office. Wake up please. It is happening in America now too!

If you don’t think he sympathizes with these dictators, look at his response to the heroic efforts of the Hondurans in ousting a leader who was doing the same thing he is–usurping power and violating the people’s constitutional rights! He sided with Zelaya and insists he should be returned from exile and placed back into power over the Honduran patriots!

And consider his lack of response to the brave freedom loving people in Iran who were protesting a fraudulent election. Silence, until he was repeatedly pushed to issue some kind of response– and even then it was lukewarm at best!

These are the people that Obama is befriending–bold, audacious men that take what they want by force. I believe he feels a kinship with these men because he has similar ambitions. In fact, I believe they are all auditioning for the position of world leader.

These are the philosophical allies of our president–and he is working to establish them as his political allies as well! Every move he makes is to court those who despise freedom and draw them into his circle of influence!

Look at his appointees-many of them are drawn from the ranks of the organizations he puts them in charge of overseeing! Do you not see that he is throwng the door open wide and letting the fox into the henhouse? And he welcomes people from every ideology that is opposed to America as we know it!

The status quo is under attack–and it probably should be! But the direction in which he is taking us instead is not towards honesty, transparency, justice, and equality. Those are his claims, but you must look at his actions! While he may cover his real convictions with the words we want to hear, the people he surrounds himself with don’t even attempt to veil their convictions!

It has struck me how he has told us, more or less, what he planned to do. His agenda is not deeply concealed. In fact, it is so obvious that it is hard to understand why people are not seeing what it is! Unlike previous administrations, his ambitions and design are all happening in plain sight-this is very unusual too! Here is why I believe that it is happening this way:

Whether or not he knows and intends that what he is putting in place in America will pave the way for the antichrist to have world dominion is not apparent at this time. However, there are deep spiritual involvements and implications here!

Understand, for example, that a person cannot be possessed without inviting it. There are spiritual laws that cannot be violated. So too, it would be a violation of spiritual laws for Satan to seize control of government on earth. However, he is free to persuade & deceive men to grant him the power that is rightfully theirs! So, he courts the leaders of the world’s people.

So, Obama is NOT violating spiritual laws in creating a government for the antichrist to control. He is doing this in plain sight to obtain the implied consent of the American people! He may say one thing, but we can see, if we choose to, what he is really doing. This protects the antichrist from being unseated on the grounds that he violated spiritual laws in obtaining his power. Therefore, if you have any objections to what is happening, you must act to oppose it now, while the power of government still belongs to the American people.
