This is not an attempt to say who is more morally correct but rather to point an obvious set of truths that every one, yes, including myself, ignore very ignorantly and profoundly that it boggles even the most enlightened minds. In every American classroom, in every mainstream media outlet, in every news story, you are told one perspective about the controversy at hand, the Confederate flag. However, I will attempt to give a different perspective contrary to what is taught in every classroom, what is said in every news story, and what is put out by our mainstream media. As a result, in writing this opinion, I may very well lose my job, and my reputation because I will present a different point of view, a different perspective that is not cognizant of the prevailing mainstream media opinions and of the politically correct.
We keep hearing that the Confederate flag is about racism, slavery and all the controversies that pertains to the 1950s and 1960s during the Civil Rights era. Let there be no ambiguity, any form of racism or bigotry is abhorrent, and un-American. It rails against the political pandora’s box created by our Founding Fathers, the Constitution, the Common Law and the sacrifices made by those who struggled, and died for a simple idea: a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
We keep hearing about our fellow Americans of African ancestry being victims of slavery, and racism and our fellow Americans of African ancestry are used as scapegoats as focal point as a racial divide by those in power. It is a sickening a twist to their saga for their citizenship rights. Our fellow American brothers and sisters of African heritage and descent are being played like a violin, and only few realize it, while the majority play right into the narrative, “us versus them” and “black versus white.” It is imperative for the establishment to keep Americans divided among ethnic lines, because it gives them a reason for their existence. Imagine, if we all joined hands, regardless of skin color or ethnicity and told the establishment, that no, we will not fall into their trap of creating conflict between the races, that we are united in brotherhood and sisterhood as American citizens and we demand ALL of our citizenship rights. If we did that, the establishment would have no reason for their existence and that in itself would be cause for celebration among all of America’s people.
However, before addressing the issue of the Confederate flag and its meaning, we are ignoring the true victims of racism, we are forgetting the true recipients of our governments racism, and bigoted policies long before and after slavery step foot on this continent. We are forgetting the once proud people that once roamed this land, we are forgetting the Native American in which under the Stars and Stripes suffered the most than any people who have step foot on this continent. All we have to do is simply ask: where are they today?
We said to these people, the Native American, we come in peace, lay down your arms and we will lay down ours so that we can talk peace, friendship, establish commerce and trade. Yet, in their reward for their kindness and trust, they received blankets with disease; in the end they received our greatest gift, war and destruction. In all the treaties and agreements with Native Americans, not one was ever honored by our government. Instead, we slaughtered these people by the millions, and in some cases to save bullets or when we ran out of bullets, we used our sabers, bayonets or anything that resembled a weapon to kill their women and children. The suffering of these people under the Stars and Stripes, no pen or paper can never ever be truly described.
We saw their land, and how beautiful it was, and like a child wanting what is not theirs, we slaughtered their most prized possessions, we slaughtered their women and children. We took what was not ours, and now we call it our land. Possessing their land was not enough so we put a nail in their coffin by killing their food source, the buffalo, we sealed their fate by putting them in concentration camps, but our government and mainstream media likes to call them reservations. We forcefully assimilated their children and rid them of their language, their culture, and what is left of their culture are in history books or college campuses. However, we need not to worry, our history books, our classrooms, and our media does not call it racism, they just call it a series of unfortunate events, like the Trail of Tears.
Our media will say, that its just the past, just history and not racism. They would rather call it a conflict between diverse communities, rather than call it for what it really is, the Native American Holocaust based on pure racism and condoned by the United States government, under the Stars and Stripes. All we have to do is simply look at the movies that are produced about Native Americans by Hollywood, and that is a small minute detail in a long trail of racism and abuses under the American flag and not the Confederate flag. In addition, all we have to do is look at their current state, and all you will find is a once proud people are now destitute, poor, fragile, ridden with issues of alcoholism and drugs. But do not worry, there is not enough of them to cause any civil strife because the U.S. government, under the Stars and Stripes, have successfully disarmed them; they have effectively put the Native American in their place.
Our Stars and Stripes, our flag standard, is more drenched in blood, pure racism, death, deceit, suffering, tears and sadness than the Confederate flag, which flew for only 4 years. Yet, there are those today who wish to paint the picture that four years of the life of the Confederate States of America is much worse than the entire life of our current republic or that the actions of a minority are representative of a whole.
So the next time some one says the Confederate flag is racist, politely ask them, and what of the Native American under the Stars and Stripes? Don’t forget to include those who suffered the most under the current flag, the Native American. I think it is safe to say, we owe the Native American a simple apology because so far, I haven’t heard one yet.
How blind are we, the American people, to not see what we have done, and are continuing to do under the Stars and Stripes? We are in denial, that supposedly we are freest republic on the Earth, but yet we allow and behave like the most tyrannical. No other proof is needed than the abuses of government against the liberties they are sworn, and duty bound to protect of every American citizen under the Stars and Stripes. In our own hypocrisy, we have an inept president who has done nothing to solve the upheaval between the races, or to protect our rights as he swore to do upon taking his oath of office. However, because of the color of his skin, criticizing him will get you labeled as racist simply because you disagree with his policies and actions. We have a Congress that the best money can buy and if you dare say otherwise publicly, the mainstream media will call you a conspiracy theorist or delusional.
Perhaps, if the American people educated themselves about our Constitution, our republic’s history, about Native Americans, and causes of the War Between the States, and not some watered down public school version to make us feel better about ourselves and government, they would see, that yes, there is more to our flag than “Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave.” The American people will find that our flag is dripping with innocent blood, lies and deceit.
However, it is rather unfortunate, that the American citizenry are too lazy to care or are too busy being manipulated by those who want them in bondage and disunited. This modern day form of slavery need not chains or whips but rather strict obedience to their masters who will send swarms of armed men to kidnap, imprison, to brutalize people, or confiscate private property. If these patriot Americans resist, if they continue in defending their rights, these swarms of armed men, also known as the police, have the authority of the State and Federal government to invade their homes, and kill them. The media will call these swarms of armed men heroes, but to their victims, they are known as enforcers and tools of the tyrants.
Don’t want to pay your car registration tax? The government will seize your property. Want to smoke a plant that harms no one? The U.S. Government will send armed men from a chosen alphabet soup agency to kidnap you, seize your property, your life savings, imprison you and destroy your life. All this is being done under the Stars and Stripes!
Ironically, Hitler did not have to invade the U.S. to have the tyranny that we have today disguised as the N.S.A., C.I.A. or Homeland Security under the Stars and Stripes. Having these views, in our republic, today, will have you labeled by our government, our politicians and mainstream media as a potential domestic extremist, paranoid delusional individual or terrorist because we dare speak out against the tyranny that is coming over these States. It is the same tyranny that our ancestors brothers and sisters fought against. When the King, proclaimed these colonies in revolt, and President of these States proclaimed those southern States are in rebellion against their respective governments, those brave men answered the call of freedom and willingly put their lives at risk.
It is apparent, that we Americans are so slighted and easily distracted that we have not learned from the history of our German counterparts when tyranny in the form of Nazism plagued Germany. Let us remind ourselves of our recent history with regards to Hitler; Hitler did not enter Berlin with army tanks, he was elected by a wide majority of the people. Speaking out against Hitler and Nazis became hazardous to one’s health, especially when the population was completely disarmed and only government had all the firearms. If you spoke out against the Nazi regime, if your opinion differed from the Nazi propaganda machine, you were labeled an enemy of the state, and thus your life as you knew it was over. These German citizens did not commit any crimes, they did not violate any one’s rights, all they did was simply believed differently and the life of their family and friends was over. Sound familiar?
In order to understand the controversy, we must first understand the underlying the history of our southern sister States to even grasp why the Confederate flag is revered by them. William E. Gladstone once said, that our U.S. Constitution was the greatest work ever written by the brain of men. This is undoubtedly true, yet, before and after the Constitution was ratified, the debate arose at the Philadelphia Convention and Congress as to the nature of this form of government. The Federalist papers, and the Anti-Federalist papers are a testament of this debate, and yet our citizenry are extremely ignorant of the debate.
It is undoubtedly true, slavery was the immediate cause in the woeful conflict between the States, it was the focal point in which the arguments centered on. However, had there been no slavery, there would have been no war, and there would have been no slavery if the South’s protests against the introduction of institution had been listened to when it was initially introduced by Northern colony of Massachusetts Bay.
Before the blistering bayonets and hostilities of 1861 began, the debates arose in Congress as to the nature of what ought to be our fraternal government, a voluntary union of independent sovereign States bound together by that noble fabric of parchment called the Constitution. This document, signed by the Founding Fathers, and sealed forever more by those soldiers, black, white and yes, Native American, too, with their sacred honor, lives, fortunes and revolutionary blood.
Even after the Constitution was signed, and ratified, the nature of the Constitution was continually debated in the halls of Congress. This debate tested willingness of Hamilton and Jefferson to compromise, and taxed the patience of Washington in their endeavors to define the nature of the relationship of the Constitution and sister States. Soon, the argument entered a sectional phase and what were words of fraternal brotherhood among these States, soon became a war of words until finally the argument of the nature of the government became so fractured that sadly, both sides believed the argument could no longer be settled in the halls of Congress, but sadly, the battlefield. A time when one side fought for perpetual ideas of a strong central government and the other side fought liberty in the independence of the States as bequeathed by our Forefathers.
The South responded with a depth of fraternal conviction to the charges of the North that secession was illegal, she argued that secession was not illegal, and the reasons for their action, as done by the original 13 States, were similar to those by our Forefathers. The South argued, that the States upon joining the union was a voluntary act, that each State had not surrendered their hard fought independence, which their mother country, finally in 1783, recognized each colony, as a free and sovereign independent State.
She argued, the essential American doctrine, that the right to govern rest upon the Consent of the Governed, and that by the expressed written terms of the Constitution, all rights, and all powers not delegated were reserved to all the States. Our southern sister States challenged both the North and the Federal government to find any trace of delegated authority in the Constitution where any State or groups of States can invade or coerce a free and sovereign State. These doctrines, in her vindication to the right to secede, to assert their independence, were the echoes and the same epithets by Washington, Hancock, Adams, Jefferson, Henry and Light Horse Harry Lee.
In the four years of bloody work, it safe to say, there is nothing that could be said or done that could have saved slavery since it was a dying institution in the Western world. No other proof is needed than the examples of our European counterparts across the ocean in their gradual abolition of the horrid institution of slavery. The prevailing thought than became not if slavery would cease but of when it would cease. Had slavery been allowed to die its slow death, the issues of racism that plague us today would be silent, and the topic of discussion would be the nature of our fraternal government.
Regardless of what you are told in the media, no matter the color of your skin, you should honor the fact that these men, both Northern, Southern and yes, Native American fought for freedom as they understood it to be. Those soldiers, in the tribunal of last resort, valor contended against valor, brave men against brave men are the true Patriots of the our blessed Republic. These soldiers fought for neither fame, or reward, place or rank and they stood fast to their duties as true Patriots of the Constitution, these men sacrificed their lives for an idea, freedom and died. I would implore any one to find racism in that; these are the values that our southern brothers and sisters view in their flag and not slavery.
There will be those that will compare the Confederate flag with the Nazi flag. They will make claim that both flags are equal to one another, and that both harbor ill will towards those who do not fit the mold in which they are represented under. However, we must understand that one flag argues the reason for their establishment is based on the principles outlined in the Declaration of Independence, by our forefathers in the likes of Patrick Henry, Daniel Webster and theories of John Locke and the other on the supremacy of a master race of people, and the extreme suppression of ideas.
In defense of our American history, I venture to say, that we must not let the actions of a few vocal minority define the majority. Therefore, I dare say, that Confederate State’s history is American history, the Confederate flag is also an American flag. We should not be ashamed of our history, and rather we should learn from our past, embrace, understand and comprehend it as best we can to move forward as a republic.
Jane Bishkin, the lawyer for former police officer, David Eric Casebolt, says that he simply was having a bad day, that he was stressed. Stressed she says, stressed!
Perhaps, Jane Bishkin could explain this than:
I have had many bad days. In particular and especially, as my adopted mother, who raised me since I was 2 ½ years old, lay in bed, dying from the horrible illness of HIV, seeing her ill so many times, and wondering if she would even make it to see Christmas.
It was not that long ago, when she was diagnosed in the summer of 2000, that she had the illness and as doctors tried almost every method to keep her healthy, and to try to bring her some sense of normalcy, nothing worked. Why? Her body was old, it was worn down by HIV, and all we could do was watch and practically do nothing because there nothing that could have been done. Her fate was sealed, it was not a question if she would die, but a question of when and how soon. We were, as a family stressed. We had begun to watch our matriarch wither away, and with each passing day of seeing her, a piece of us would die. It was that slow chipping away of our sense of normalcy being eroded, and drowning in a sea of gloom and despair.
When doctors tell you, there is nothing that can be done, you are left with several choices, all of them being not favorable, you can accept the inevitable, you can pray for a miracle, or you can blame others.
During that time, I was also stressed at my job, having a supervisor who was constantly nitpicking at what I was doing, thus creating a situation where I began to question whether I belonged. I questioned each day, whether it was worth being at the job. However, in lieu of that admission, I continued to always engage with the people, to make websites, always smiling, and always being professional. Why? Because that is my job, that is what the people of my State pay me to do regardless of what is happening to me or my family or how I am feeling that day. It is what the people expect, and I am inclined and obligated to give them 110% because as a servant of the people, in some way, have entrusted me to do the right thing.
Former police officer Casebolt’s lawyer says, “with all that had happened that day, he allowed his emotions to get the better of him.” Let there be no mistake, he was stressed, he was helping to console a widow who lost her husband to suicide, and helped prevent another suicide of a young girl. How many times could I have allowed my emotions to get the better of me? How many times could I have lashed out at individuals who have removed the last sense of temperament because of their usurpations against my kind character? In times and situations like this, it calls for a reasonable effort to take a time out, to get away, to let the stresses of the day to peel off so that one’s composure is back to normal.
In lieu of this, Casebolt’s lawyer says, “he never intended to mistreat anyone, but was only reacting to a situation and the challenges that it presented.” If a non-law enforcement personnel or person on the street acted in the same manner, can we predict what would have been the outcome? Can we know for certain what would have been the response by the authorities? I will let you be the judge and suffice to say, it would have not been well received regardless of the individuals skin color. Therefore we must resist the temptation to say that this is about the individuals skin color and rather focus on the totality of the situation and its context.
I fear, we have only deepened the crisis in our republic, where different groups feel marginalized, and the media does no favor to us by sensationalizing and telling we, the people half-truths. I fear greatly that as we see the police feel marginalized, too, they will abscond from their duties and we will descend into a foray of increased polarization. Eventually, the disenfranchised people will gradually and naturally in this furnace of national debate, national ballots will crystallize into national furor; and both sides come at last to the position formerly held by the great Troupe of Georgia: “The argument is exhausted; we will now stand to our guns.”
We can take an opposite but better approach, to end the polarization of country, we can become soldiers and not fight for slavery, but for liberty and for one another. We, the people have the power to make life a splendid adventure together with our American brothers and sisters, we can fulfill the promise that is America. We can lead a struggle for all of mankind’s happiness here in our republic; only the unloved, unnatural and greedy hate. We are not machinery, cattle or sheep, we are Americans who have the love of humanity within the fabric of our hearts and souls.
Since the Eric Garner decision has come to light, and the grand jury decided not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo, there has been a sudden backlash by the population against the NYPD. Further more, there is a huge disconnect between the NYPD and the people in which they are serving and are supposed to protect.
However, thanks to 7 judicial perverted individuals that wear black robes, also known as members of the United States Supreme Court, they decided that the police have no duty to protect to you(Castle Rock v. Gonzales), the people in which they are hired are supposed to protect and serve. So now, the NYPD serve as the strongmen and women of the city to enforce laws(cigarette tax enforcement), and policies(stop and frisk) that would make the NAZIS smirk. Hitler didn’t even have to invade the United States to institute policies that come straight out of the NAZI handbook. Interesting how history repeats itself?
Now, we have two people who died, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, who were police officers in the New York City because a deranged individual, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who took it upon himself to become judge, jury and executioner. The questions become why? Why would an individual in the prime of life, and full of potential to turn his life around would decide to kill not just two police officers, but also another human being, Shaneka Thompson, of whom the media is ignoring. Why are not also focusing on her life, too? Was her life of less value?
Oh that’s right, I forgot, the New York Post has to kiss the back side of the NYPD so that Peter Lynch doesn’t accuse the New York Post of having blood on their hands, too. This is akin to blaming every person who dislikes when NYPD officers breaks the law, like sodomizing a Haitian man and the people want accountability but are refused that accountability because their union says holding them accountable means that the Mayor doesn’t support the NYPD. Yes, that makes complete sense to me; what was I thinking?!
Of course, now we have Rafael Ramos funeral, and it was well attended by police officers from the city and other places. Rafael got more than what he deserved when the Mayor, William Di Blasio, spoke, and the police officers shamed themselves by turning their backs as he began to speak. Now, there is a time and place to hold your air grievances and protests. But at a funeral? The NYPD and Peter Lynch wants the Mayor’s office, and people to respect the NYPD but how can you respect an organization that is acting like a bunch of Kindergärtners? The New York Post is ignoring the bigger issue here, there is a large part of the populace in in New York City that do not respect the NYPD and the distasteful show that they put on at Rafael’s funeral not disrespectful to Rafael, but it was also disrespectful to his family who are mourning some one they loved dearly. Yet, the New York Post feels the need to add flame to the fire by saying, “no, Bill Bratton, The Post doesn’t hate de Blasio, we just love cops.” New York Post, you say you love cops because it is fitting your agenda Stockholm Syndrome diseased and depraved mentality because you simply don’t get it.
Remember, this is the same organization, the NYPD, that nearly allowed a riot to happen because Mayor David Dinkins wanted an civilian review board to review police misconduct. Where was the New York Post? Oh that is right, they were probably too busy kissing the back side of the NYPD.
The kicker is that the New York Post than claims that they speaks for the vast majority of New Yorkers who support the NYPD. Really? Since did you read the minds of all New Yorkers or even bother to either poll or ask what they thought? You know what happens when you assume, right New York Post?
Look, I am for the police getting the bad guy, going home to their families and having their beer once and a while with their colleagues. It would be insane of any one to want differently. I have family members who are members of the police, and I would be the biggest enemy of any one who would wish them harm. However, I wouldn’t be their biggest enemy my family members are police officers, but because they are family members, they are human beings, and there would be no low that I would stoop to ensure justice is served in timely and effective manner.
The blame for the current controversy can not be laid solely on City Hall’s door steps. The blame for the current controversy in reality is not hard to find. The blame resides with we, the people, ourselves, for properly holding accountable City Hall, for passing these laws that only hinder the population rather than help it, the NYPD for allowing stop and frisk, and allowing corruption within their ranks to continue, and the news media, like the New York Post, and New York Time, and New York Daily News for pouring gasoline on a well lit fire. These newspapers are self-serving rather than serving true journalistic ethical behavior. We must ask ourselves, when have these newspapers actually written stories, or articles that did not contain a biased opinion that would make Pravda giggle? We, the people, need to hold our representatives accountable not just at the ballot box, and history has shown that this is indeed not the case. Simply look at the policies that are being and ask what who are they really protecting? The elite? The rich?
If the members of the NYPD had any sense, they would do their jobs as they were hired to do, and do it Constitutionally. They would stop their “work stoppage” and honor their oath. There goes that word, “oath.” Remember that NYPD? Remember that little set of phrases you said before you became a member of the NYPD; in which you swore by oath or affirmation that you understood what was expected of you? You can continue to listen to your “boss” Peter Lynch, or you can do your jobs effectively, and Constitutionally, as we expect you to. I would prefer the latter, because the former is playing politics, and is using your as your pawns to further an agenda that suits their needs. Not yours. Do you really think Peter Lynch has your best interests at heart? Your boss, or rather your bosses are the people of New York City, and not a union president. Remember that; we pay your salaries, you are answerable to we, the people. So the NYPD can smirk and say that it doesn’t care, but remember, in the same vein that we, the people, gave them that power to police our streets is the exact power we can take it back from them and institute new institutions that would effect our happiness, liberties and prosperity.
In moments of crisis, in moments when lives have been taken in our republic, that is the time to take time to pause, to take a step back we must think about our reactions. With a sound mind, we must come to a sound but reasonable approach to assess what exactly is happening and why.
The deaths of the two New York City police officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos have begun to set off a chain reaction that I believe will deepen the crisis that is happening through out our republic and the very people who are policing and enforcing the laws of the land.
I have mistrust of all law enforcement, I am biased against all law enforcement; however, I recognize, too, that they are human, they have families, they are a brother or sister, friend, a father or mother. In my initial reaction to the deaths of these officers, it was one cold hearted of jubilation that we have finally gotten two of theirs, that we have finally started to clean house against an organization that every one knows is corrupt accept the very people that work for the organization. It was at that moment I thought, “now how does it feels to have the shoe on the other foot?!”
In retrospect, this is the wrong sentiment to have because it is un-American; this is not how one instigates positive change throughout our republic. Yes, we want police to honor their oaths, yes, we want police to treat the very people in their communities with respect, and we want them to do the right thing. The senseless killing of two human beings because of being a police officer who did nothing wrong and being judged and summarily executed has never helped to bring about positive change.
We had momentum going and the people on our side, and now that this tragedy has unfolded, I fear we have lost that momentum because of one single individual who believed it was his right to take the lives of two human beings. These two human beings, even though who are a part of an organization that is highly racist, bigoted and corrupt, I do not doubt the sincerity of the mass of these two men, and others, who simply doing their jobs. We do not have to like their profession, but we should at least respect them as human beings.
Undoubtedly, the deaths of these human beings will only deepen the crisis that before us, and I only fear that now we will see people more on edge. I think it is critical that we as a people take a step back, let us reflect carefully, and thoroughly before we act. A simple solution would be, for us, as Americans, to regain our perspective, to read our Constitution, to read our history, to read our Declaration of Independence, and than look at the laws that our Congress, State and local governments are passing that to allow our freedoms to be taken away as they are now. If we were more attentive to what is happening to our freedoms, we would have not seen the deaths of not just these two police officers. In addition, we would not have seen the deaths of Eric Garner, Aiyana Jones, Christopher Dorner, Kelly Thomas, Christopher Smith, Brandon Paudert, Bill Evans and countless others.
Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos did not deserve to die, they did nothing wrong, and to those saying that they did. Ask yourself this simple question, if it was your father, friend, brother, sister, mother or loved one who was summarily executed because they believed differently than you do, how would you react or feel? Before your answer that question, be a human being with compassion.
It is important that we as Americans must very carefully look ourselves in the mirror; the world is watching. Do we want lawlessness and corruption that is representative of a third world country? Do we want senseless revenge killings of fellow Americans because they disagree on the law, and the Constitution?
The last time we had senseless killings of fellow Americans, it happened at a time when families were torn apart, our Sister States fought against one another, friends, and neighbors became enemies, and 600,000 Americans lost their lives. We must than ask ourselves where is it that we want to be as a republic, as a nation and union of many sovereign States in the common cause of Constitutional Liberty, the rule of law, as envisioned by our Fathers and an example to the candid world.
InfoWars Article: Police Caught Saying MRAP is for Constitutionalists
Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich Response Video to InfoWars Article: Click to view
Dear Ozzie Knezovich,
I understand why you did this response video the InfoWars article, and video that was released in regards to your deputy saying that the MRAP was for “Constitutionalists.” However, I think you need to understand the real underlying reason for the outrage, and I do not think you understand it. May be you do, and may be I’m being too cynical about it. It is not a coincidence that police departments all around our republic are getting these weapons and tools of war. We are seeing these weapons and tools of war used by the police against American citizens to execute search warrants, collect on student loans, fines and other nuances that would simply take two or three police officers to do.
Something is happening with our police departments all around our republic and yet, when we bring these issues to light, we are villified as being paranoid, delusional, or my favorite one an Alex Jones Conspiracy theorist. I guess I must be one of those “Constitutionalists” your deputy was talking about because I will never follow an un-Constitutional law or order; keep in mind, I’m just a civilian, I have never swore an oath to an office, or duty. However, I recognize that as part of my citizenship, our civic duty as American citizens is to never obey police or President Obama unlawful commands should they issue one, but to obey the lawful commands of the Constitution, to question every thing around us.
So when we see a deputy, a sheriff, a congressman or officer of government say these things, it raises an eyebrow or two. Look at what is happening all around our republic with these laws the several States in our Union are passing for “legislation” such as, for example, the New York SAFE Act, or Connecticut’s firearms legislation, and look who they are looking to enforce these draconian laws. You, and your deputies. Of course, than, add to that you have the general government buying 2 billion rounds of ammunition, and small town police departments getting these tools of war which are practically tanks, and getting gear that makes them look like soldiers.
It ceases to be a conspiracy theory when they doing the very things we are concerned about right in front of our faces. Other police officers have said it in plain writing that they wishing for the day to be given the order to go and get firearms of law abiding American citizens. So you see why when see people, like your deputy, says the thing that he said and it raises eyebrows and brings condemnation? We see it all over YouTube, police doing the unthinkable, and yet, when the questions are raised, all we get is terse response and no wrong doing. Just like your claim that your deputy did nothing wrong, according to you in your video. The American people are on edge, they see something is happening with our police & government, and something is wrong. May be you do not see it because you’re part of the system, so your view is skewed
Look, I recognize that there people out there who claim to be “Constitutionalists” but are merely people who are opportunists who bend the law to their dictates and likings; just like there are police officers who claim to be for the Constitution but yet are the first ones at a illegal check point demanding drivers licenses for no reason.
Something is happening in our republic, and unless we fix it and address it now, it is only going to get worse. I dread the day that an American will have to pick up their firearm, and draw his weapon against another armed American because he is in fear of losing his unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Last time that happened, six hundred thousand lost their lives and I don’t think we want repeat of history.
There is no book in existence, I believe, that can truly exemplify one of the many duties as Americans citizens. From our Constitution, to our sacred Declaration of Independence, it is not just our responsibility as American citizens to seek out the truth, even if that truth, being tragic as it may be, is hurtful to those affected by it but it is rather our sacred duty to find it.
In the Hartford Courant, there was a commentary by one of the parents of the children that died at Sandy Hook, Lenny Pozner. In this commentary he had words to say to those that question the version of events at Sandy Hook. Let me preface this by saying, no parent should ever have to bury their child, it is the child that should bury their parents; this is how it has been since mankind has walked the Earth, and so it should remain. What I will write today, many will hear the message being conveyed but very few will have listened to or have even attempted to understand the message because of its challenge to the establishment and those stuck in their ways. In reality it will challenge, it will insult and even offend those that do not wish for others to perform the simple acts questioning and using critical thinking.
Ancient Greek philosopher Socrates reasoned to his students that in the pursuit of any truth can only begin once they begin to question and analyze every belief they believe dear to them even at the risk of ridicule. If a certain theory passes the tests of evidence, deduction, and logic, it should be used as fact or kept. However, on the other hand, if it doesn’t, the belief should not only be discarded, but the thinker must also then question why he was led to believe the erroneous information initially. This type of teaching did not bode well with the ruling class of Greece. Throughout human history, those in power, the political elite, or privileged class have always sought to mislead the thinking of the masses. Socrates was tried for these “crimes” against the state and for allegedly damaging the youth and forced to commit suicide.
In today’s age, it is not easy being an independent thinker. Even today, those ruling in government, media complex or alleged victims do not kill people for pursuing the truth about the world or their surroundings, well at least not at the moment they don’t but they sure do ridicule you for doing so! They will simply label you as a paranoid, delusional individual or worse yet, call you a conspiracy theorist for simply asking questions and for not accepting their version of the truth or events. In doing so, by questioning the ruling class, the State, or even the alleged victims, they will attempt in destroying careers and reputations in the process. They will call you “insensitive” or worse yet, they will call you crazy, potential extremists made to damage your reputation and career. It is a fate even worse than drinking poison like Socrates did because he simply asked people to use logic, evidence and critical thinking rather than accept things blindly.
However, in lieu of the above statement, I believe, as critical thinking individuals, it is important that we, as adults, scrutinize everything we are told, even at the point of ridicule because this how we are able to determine fact from fiction, truth from falsehood. Remember, it was not that long ago that people thought that Earth was flat, the center of the Solar System, or that the Sun revolved around the Earth. However, through evidence, deduction, logic, critical thinking, and analysis, we have come to terms and conclusion that the Earth is not the center of the Solar System, that the Earth is actually round and finally the Earth revolves around the Sun.
Yet, in his commentary, Lenny Pozner takes aim at those individuals who question the version of events at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. He goes on in his commentary and claims that people all over the internet attempted to spread lies and misinformation. What he fails to realize is that those people are simply not accepting the State’s version of events. Just like the tragedy on 9/11 and the Boston Bombings, they are using logic, evidence, logical deduction, critical thinking, and analysis into assessing the facts, opinions and thus coming to their own conclusions, something of which they have all right to do.
Throughout human history, governments have been known to lie to advance an agenda, whether it be small or large, regardless, governments have been known to fabricate lies. Let us take for example the Viet Nam War. Did you know that the United States government lied to the American people in regards to the Gulf of Tonkin incident? As a result of this lie, the truth became the first casualty of the Viet Nam War, which in turn led to the countless deaths of millions of Vietnamese civilians, and thousands of American soldiers over the course of 10 years. The American people were treated to another lie courtesy of George Bush, Jr., when he made the claim that the Iraqi government was in possession of weapons of mass destruction. Now, the American people are reaping the benefits of that lie courtesy of an out of control Federal government, a complacent judiciary and a chief executive who believes he is above the Constitution; the very document that he swore an oath to, to defend and protect against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
To Lenny Pozner, I say this, let us take the supposition that you are correct. Anything and everything that has been said, collected as evidence or detailed as a result of the Sandy Hook shootings is factually correct. That there are only but some minor errors, such as typos or grammar. The State than, should have no problems or qualms than in answering the questions of the hoaxers. As a matter of fact, it should be able to answer those questions without even hesitation and with ease. Let us also take the supposition that yes, there are sensitive issues, would it not be reasonable to simply mask the names and faces without having to reveal identities? Would it not be reasonable to answer the most basic of questions? For example:
- who and why did they not allow paramedics and the EMTs inside the school?
- who declared all 18 school children and six school staff members legally deceased within the first eight minutes?
- why were no Life Star Trauma helicopters used or requested?
- what was the name of the certified environmental bio-hazard decontamination company that removed the blood, body tissue, fluids, or blood soaked carpets?
Notice that the questions above are not asking for personal or private information, but rather simple logistical information that any individual could answer very easily. Yet these questions are difficult to obtain answers to because they refused to be answered by the State. In addition, notice that these questions are not even directed at the parents or children of the parents directly affected by the shootings. However, for some reason, to people like Lenny Pozner, they are offensive. If such is the case, how are they offensive and to whom?
Lastly, let us also take the supposition that the individuals asking the “inappropriate” questions or the ones being labeled as “hoaxers” are completely wrong, that the questions being asked are so outrageous, and outlandish or far out there that any attempt to answer them would offset the mental equilibrium of the most sound minded individual. Would it be reasonable to believe, that the persons asking the questions do so at their own leisure, and at their own expense by risking their own credibility? Would it be reasonable to believe that the only damage that they are doing are to themselves? If the children are truly deceased, than what more damage could these “hoaxers” do that has not been already done?
Remember, as an adult that lives in America, Lenny Pozner, you are free to do many things. You are free to change the television channel if you do not like what you are watching or seeing. You are certainly most welcome to turn the radio station off if you do not like what you’re hearing or listening to. You are certainly most welcome and free to ignore the questions or comments being thrown at you. This is a free country! Is it not? And if there is wrong doing on the part of the State in allowing this heinous act to happen, is it not be the responsibility of the citizenry to bring the State and those involved to justice and bare the full might of the American people?
Now, let us play devil’s advocate, let us take the supposition that there are actual fallacies and inconsistencies in the State’s version of events. Let us also take the position, that the State is actually lying about what occurred at Sandy Hook. Would it not be reasonable for the citizenry of the State, and of the rest of the republic to demand answers? Would it not be our duty and responsibility of the people to seek out the truth? If the State and Newtown township has told us the truth, than why does it ignore Freedom of Information Act requests? What is that saying police like to say? If you have nothing to hide or if you have not done anything wrong than you have no problem in showing us the documents or answering our questions. Is that correct? Why pass legislation that makes it difficult or not impossible to obtain records detailing the deaths and injuries? Who and what are you protecting?
For many, taking this stance and this sentiment is very difficult to comprehend, and understand. It goes against what we have grown accustomed here in America now. To not question the government, to not use critical thinking, logical deduction, analysis or evidence to seek the truth. However, I think it is important to note, the pursuit of truth, and accountability outweighs what you feel or think even if that accountability and pursuit of truth offends you. Because if they are going to be passing laws that effect all residents and citizens of this State, than it is our solemn responsibility to ensure all the facts are presented, analyzed, scrutinized and debated in an open forum so that all can see.
We will keep pandering to this form of ridicule while we defer to them thanks to a biased press, a complacent State government, police and judiciary you wouldn’t want to wish on your worst enemy. I take, that back you might actually would!
This situation that we are found with is as much a threat to our freedom as it is to every one else. It is clear indication that we what we need in America, especially Connecticut, now is not more respect to the State sanctioned version of events of Sandy Hook but less respect. It needs more analysis, and an independent investigation because of the questions that have arisen from the State sanctioned version of events of which have flaws in them. We need to stop pretending, because that is what we are doing, we are pretending that the alleged victims, the State, or any one in our government will never lie to the public or that they have our best interest at heart when we can clearly see that they are hiding something and are lying to us.
What we are witnessing before us is a perverted system of evil that encourages the masses to accept everything that they are told, and to do as they say and not what they do. It sanctions the stripping of the very freedom our Founding Fathers brought forth to this continent: a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among these rights are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Any one here in America advocating to contrary to these ideals or values of freedom, in the midst of controversy or not would very find themselves isolated, and if they are in government would find themselves in jail for violating their oaths or office to the defend and protect the United States Constitution. Given the poisonous fiction of totalitarian agenda that is plaguing our republic, this is not something that should be encouraged in any way. It should be discouraged by firm patriots who believe those American values, and by rigorous enforcement of the United States Constitution and values. Remember the Constitution?
Now, I know that I am going to be accused of being a conspiracy theorist, paranoid delusional, irrationally insensitive or disrespectful to families of Sandy Hook by the usual self-righteous pundits or even the families themselves, but in all honesty, I don’t mind or care, because those words have no value in this context. One has been neutralized by repeated dishonest misuse, and the other is a boldfaced lie concocted by the political left in tandem with their supporters from the right in a marriage of convenience which is quite frankly beneath contempt and insulting.
Being insensitive means you do not show or care about the feelings of other people. In the pursuit of the truth, asking questions is not irrational or insensitive because something does not add up. Not asking questions is irrational and pandering to the State sanctioned version of events is downright criminal. Indulging the lie, that some how what the State has said and presented is 100% accurate while ignoring the crucial questions of the shooting is more than just irrational; it is downright criminal. And if you really want to talk about being insensitive than look no further than the poisonous fiction that the State recently passed a gun control measure that is supposed to keep you safe, but in actuality keeps you less safe and only affects law abiding American citizens and not the criminals who look at these laws as a joke. The State governments that promote this form of Constitutional violations are criminals, and the civil servants who pander to it, and enforce it are criminals. The university lecturers, school teachers and principals who encourage it are criminals. The journalist who also encourage it are criminals. The ordinary people who say one thing in private and another in public are cowardly un-American cowardly hypocrites who would rather be subjugated than free.
If we can not bring ourselves to say or ask what is in our hearts when it truly matters or when the truth is on trial, then we have already given up our way of life, our right to ask questions(regardless if some one “feels” offended) and our freedom, and with it the freedom of future generations which is something that we have no right to do.
We didn’t earn this freedom! It was handed to us on plate by people who did earn it with their lives. We do not own it, we are the custodians of it. It is not ours to give away. So it is time to speak up people of Connecticut and America. It is time to stop whining and bellyaching about the Middle East for five minutes and show a little back bone for once, just once. Or do we want to spend the rest of our lives cowering like a bunch of frightened mice from a cabal of insensitive anti-American bigots who think they have a right to poke a finger into our chest and tell us what we can, and can not ask, say, do or think because we have questions, doubts or concern? Well, I do not know about you, but any one who asks me that question is going to get a very terse unequivocal answer, and it won’t contain the words, “Newtown Strong!”
So Lenny Pozner, feel free to grieve, feel free to call me a hoaxer, paranoid delusional Alex Jones conspiracy theorist. It is your right to call myself, or any one for that matter any and all names you feel that are appropriate for using critical thinking and analysis in investigating the Newtown Shootings. So in the words of Michael Ruppert, an American patriot, and soldier of the truth, to all FBI agents, NSA spies, agitators, tyrants in the United States government, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York state governments, the NYPD, the Massachusetts State Police, Connecticut State Police and all the people who refuse to use critical thinking in the pursuit of truth and would rather be sheep:
a revolution can be anything, but I will tell you this, that a revolution according to Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Monroe and all of the Founding Fathers is my divine right.
So I challenge you Lenny Pozner, the State of Connecticut government, the Connecticut State Police, allow the public to scrutinize all of the evidence, let us find the truth than speak for itself, and than, in the end let us come to our conclusions based on evidence, and not some one’s perceived grief. For as our forefathers, who fought for liberty in the union of the States, the other for liberty in the independence of the States, who through sacrifice, have passed down to us through purchased Revolutionary blood, our duties and responsibilities to our State, our republic, ourselves and those of future generations their unalienable rights, among them the right to the pursuit of the truth, and that when ever any government Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Divine Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles of allowing the people to be the ultimate arbiters of the truth and authority, to be able to affect the future Liberty, Safety and Happiness.
Abraham Lincoln once said, “we the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” So I ask you Lenny Pozner, and those in the government of the State of Connecticut, the Connecticut State Police and all government agents in Connecticut involved with Newtown, which side are you on? Are you on the side of the ones willing to allow the truth to be perverted, along with the Constitution, or are you on the side of the Good People of these States who simply just want the truth? Choose wisely.
One more thing, to the tyrannical governments of New York, and Connecticut, my divine right to keep and bear arms is unalienable, perpetual, and irrevocable no matter how many legislations or laws you pass in fooling the masses in thinking you’re passing in order to keep them “safe.”

Recently, armed domestic terrorists with K-9 from Sandusky, Ohio terrorized a family and threatened to kidnap their two week old child because of an alleged “traffic violation.”
According to the video recently uploaded to YouTube, the reason for the operator of the vehicle, the mother of the two week old child, was pulled over was because of an alleged traffic violation. However, when her papers came back clean, the armed terrorists proceeded to terrorize the father of the infant by demanding his identification.
However, the father, being well aware of the Constitution and its protections, refused to surrender his identification. The terrorist, also known as Police Officer Denny, from the Sandusky Ohio Police Department, stated that Andre Stockett, “looks like a guy who has warrants” and proceeded to demand his identification.
This did not sit well with the terrorists, and Andre Stockett than demanded that if the papers of his spouse is clear, why are they still being detained? The terrorist, Officer Denny, than says that the reason for the detention is because the lights on the vehicle are not on, however, because of the video, it is clear that it is still day light out. In other words, the domestic terrorist, Officer Denny, was lying and fabricating reasons to detain the family.
After more verbal exchanges, and an attempt to obtain his identification, the terrorists than bring a K-9 unit to search the vehicle for drugs, which Andre Stockett refuses consent to any searches of seizures of the vehicle pursuant to the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
The situation escalates when more armed terrorists arrives and Andre Stockett warns the terrorist, Officer Denny, that they have their infant child inside. What happens next is beyond any human comprehension, the terrorists, in particular Officer Denny, than proceeds to threaten kidnap his two week old child by saying, “we’ll get CPS to take your baby!” Under threat of having her child kidnapped by the State, the mother fearful for her child opens the door to the vehicle, and Andre Stockett is than arrested for contempt of cop, also known as “obstruction.”
If you’re wondering why I used the word “terrorist” in this story, it is because the police in our communities and republic at large have become more of a tool for the State to harass the population. We are witnessing story after story of police officers, raping, stealing, shooting our elderly and killing our pets, our sick, our pets and even fabricating evidence and lying under oath.
We keep hearing that is it is a small minority of police officers doing these kinds of things. However, the inaction and silence of the majority is significant in their complicity.
I used to be pro-law enforcement, however, recent actions by the police across our country has put me in a position where I can no longer voice my support for an establishment that under the color of law commits these very acts in which they’re supposed to be against.
I can no longer support an establishment whose mentality are of school yard bullies terrorizing a family, such as evident above, and than threatening to kidnap their child, to use as leverage because the feelings of the officer was hurt since the citizen, Andre Stockett exercised his rights in a timely fashion. Simply disgusting, and any one who excuses the behavior needs to re-evaluate their priorities and moral values.
These are individual who are supposed to be held to a higher standard, however, this video, and many others alike have shown they no longer represent our communities, the 99%, but rather the 1%.
Why call them terrorists? Ask this simple question, how many American citizens has Al Qaeda or ISIS killedsince 9/11 versus the amount of American citizens killed by police?
Until the police stop terrorizing us, invading our homes, extort our substinence, and honor their oaths: I will no longer shed a tear when an officer is wounded or killed, I will no longer view them as respectable members of society, but rather I will view them as domestic State sponsored terrorists.
