The Enemy Within: The Real Terrorists

July 28, 2014 Leave a comment

There are few in this age of information, of the present, that can truly testify to the magnitude of the urgency of the current threat before us. Our national government, our law enforcement, our leadership, have painted a “Boogey man” or “Boogey men” and these men are in our midst waiting to cause havoc, to murder us, to brutalize us, to maim us, and to ultimately enslave us all under the color of law and rightful authority over us.

It is rather difficult to pen these words, but it is important that as human beings, when we see wrong, we must speak out, we must use our voices, and attempt to be heard in order to be understood. This is my attempt.

Recently, the world, was privileged in seeing a man who was a fallible human being, a father, a son, a friend and most importantly a fellow brother in humanity. His name was Eric Garner, he was recently murdered because he decided to right a wrong, to end a conflict between two individuals, a noble deed that one would believe to be honorable among men.

Police would later come, and accuse him selling loose-single cigarettes, in which he was arrested for on numerous occasions. It was this accusation that would lead to his demise. A video surfaced that showed the nature in which Eric Garner was pleading to police that he had done nothing wrong, except end hostilities between two individuals. The New York Police Department officers decided that he was guilty, and thus came the sequence of events that would later end Eric Garner’s life.

There is no book in existence today, I believe, that can truly describe a person who is pleading, begging, asking and praying for their life. There is no book in existence, I apprehend, that can truly represent suffering in its purest form. Eric Garner, was privileged in being murdered by the very people who have sworn, by oath, and affirmation, to defend, and protect the citizenry in which they represent and live among. Like so many, since the “war on terror” began on 9/11, Eric Garner, is now part of that ribald statistic that informed Americans now dread. Five thousand people have now perished at the hands of the very people who are supposed to protect their communities from that criminal element in society.

As Eric Garner was taken down by those police officers on the mere accusation of selling loose-single cigarettes, he was than placed in a choke hold, and as he lay there with other police officers on top of him, he pleaded, he begged, he attempted to beseech them to allow him to breath. As one of the officers, releases his hold on his neck, the other officers place their weight upon Eric Garner, thus inducing more stress, and then one of the officers puts pressure on his head and making what was once a simple encounter of inquiry into outright murder.

Paramedics were called to the scene, and rather than perform their duties as they trained to be, they rendered no aid, no comfort, no slight in any form human of compassion to another brother in humanity. They allowed a fellow human being to expire without effort to save him. It was rather just for them to allow Eric Garner to die because of the lack of inhumanity.

The video of Eric Garner’s death, in which leaves me in sad and depressed state of remorse for the many victims of this form of crimes against humanity upon thought. It leaves me wondering of the  long train of abuses by our law enforcement officers through out these United States.

The many victims of this brutality comes to my mind, among them, Kelly Thomas, whose pleas for his life went ignored as police savagely beat him so relentlessly that he eventually, too, succumbed to his injuries, after being removed from life support. His perpetrators, at the time of this writing, continue to walk free, while Kelly Thomas rests.

The very nature of these heinous acts cries out for the goodness of men, the unity of us all, to act. The question becomes, when will we act? When will we say that is not the America that the Founding Fathers envisioned?

One of the great Founding Fathers of our republic once said, “when governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” What we are living in is our Founding Fathers’ worst nightmare, the republican form of government, along with their Constitution turned upside-down, tyranny. Yet, the few, and concerned American citizens who call out this tyranny are faced with ridicule, accusations of mental illness, delusional, paranoid or worse are subject to the subjugation of the government and their agents, known as law enforcement.

How many other Eric Garners, Aiyana Jones, Rodney Kings, or Kelly Thomas‘ have to happen before we understand the nature of the enemy to liberty, to our republican form government, to our Constitution? Is it not the nature of government to secure our liberties, and not destroy them? Yet, today, our government is arming itself with 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition, giving local enforcement weapons and tools of war. One has to ask, are they expecting more Eric Garner incidents on a grander scale that would merit an MRAP or Bearcat vehicle to apprehend these loose-single cigarette dealers? This is the same government or group of individuals in power that would want us, the citizenry to trust them with all these armaments, laws and domestic spying and while claiming if we disarm, if we surrender our freedom, they will protect us? How well did that work for Eric Garner? How was he protected? I submit to the candid world, I would rather fight for my liberty, be considered an outlaw than submit to tyranny under the color of law under the guise of keeping us safe.

It was that argument, to keep us safe, that Mao Zedong, Hitler, Pol Pot, Marcos, Chavez and Stalin used to convince their populace that under the color of law, it is okay to not be armed, that the government will be there for you. It wasn’t that long ago, here in America, Native Americans of all walks of life were shown the true nature of our government when they were practically, and systemically led to slaughter under the color of law. In addition, Americans of Japanese descent were told to leave their homes, to live, like Native Americans in concentration camps. However, to save face, our government, with the media complicit called them internment camps lest we be associated with the atrocities occurring in NAZI Europe. The only ones that did fight back here in America were the Native Americans against law, against the United States, State & local governments against what they understood to be tyranny under the color of law.

Here we are, years later, and we see our very own government, an agent supposedly of the people brutalizing us and yet all we hear are words but no action. No one will be held accountable for the wanton murder of Eric Garner, Kelly Thomas, Aiyana Jones, James Boyd or Christopher Lopez. Eventually, the masses will tire of this form of behavior, and the long war of words will be transformed in a war of open conflict. The argument will thus than be exhausted, on one side we will have patriots of our republic, armed & guarded by the Constitution and the revolutionary blood of our Founding Fathers, and on the other, a repressive authority, with their respective followers, whose behavior can only be categorized as tyrants and tyrant admirers whose goal is to enslave.

The question we must ask ourselves, do we sit or stand idly by when we are witnessing another Eric Garner incident? Do we cower in respective corner, and like a good slave, we listen to our masters and stand back as they murder an American citizen? How bad does it have to get in our republic before any one, myself included, and you do something? How many Constitutionally protected and guaranteed rights does the police, State and local governments have to violate before we act?

I Do Not Support the Israeli Bombardment of Gaza

July 19, 2014 Leave a comment

Most wars, if not all, are the result of direct or indirect economic or financial gain. It can be said that throughout human history there were few wars that have ever been fought in the name of freedom. The great moral, political and social causes of those wars are normally secondary or tertiary in nature and are never the focus until after the masses are solidarity with the government. The only exception to this is the American revolution, where only one-third of American supported the effort and the two-thirds did not care or supported the British.

Recently, on the news, we have been privileged of seeing the handy work of the Israeli Defense Forces(IDF) bombardment of Gaza. Now, the IDF ground forces are going into Gaza and are leaving a path of destruction. This is all under the guise of taking revenge against Gaza/Hamas for the alleged murder of three Israeli citizens. Keep in mind, I say alleged because neither Israel or the international community have put forward any factual evidence that would support the narrative that Hamas is at fault.

It is no question, that I do not agree with the ideology behind Hamas, neither do I condone the notion of wiping the Jewish people off of the map. However, the government of Gaza and the people of Gaza are two distinct and separate entities and it is our duty as critical thinking human beings to separate the two lest we fail in using the great gray mass between our ears.

It is no quandary, that the non-muslim world mistrusts the muslim world, and it is with good reason. It was not that long ago, the muslim world were at the Gates of Vienna, and through great sacrifice, Europeans were able to push back the muslim armies. Now what was once the great muslim age, it is now in state of such great decline that to repair muslim society and would require a great reawakening. Since than, the Western world has held great contempt for the muslim world, and it is the same contempt that the Israeli government has had with the Arabs of Gaza and the West Bank.

It must be understood, that I have no quarrel with our Jewish and muslim brothers and sisters. However, I do take exception, today, to what Israel is doing right now. By the time you finish reading this, people will have died in Gaza, and ask yourself, for what? Let their be no mistake, the taking of any human life is tragic, but I would take exception to blaming the whole community of the Arabs in Gaza. I take extreme exception of the destruction of their homes, schools, and infrastructure. All they ask to be left alone, and to live in peace. Yet, here we have a Israeli government Hell-bent on destroying the will of the populace and creating a new generation of people who grow to hate Israel, and the Jewish people, thus repeating the cycle of violence. It is one thing if the whole population of Gaza is behind Hamas, and are actively trying to invade Israel proper, than Israel has every right to defend its sovereignty. Although, I would think that we would have learned from mankind’s recent history, that total-war solves nothing but creates a new generation of enemies, and the end result being a renewed cycle of destruction, each time being much worse than the latter.

If any invading army, G-d forbid, ever tried to invade the United States, would we not employ the same tactics? Would we not try every strategy to rid our land of the invaders and call them heroes? It is rather interesting, that we would consider a freedom fighter in the West, in the muslim and Middle Eastern world we call them terrorists.

The Arabs of Gaza, I believe, now are trying to defend themselves, and they’re using any means they have available to defend their homes, at least what is left of their homes. Their is an invading foreign power, Israel, attempting to subjugate them by the barrel of the gun, and yet the media is reporting that the Gaza people are firing rockets into Israel, and yet the media is conveniently leaving out the death and destruction left behind by our “ally” Israel. The Western media are not showing the pictures of the children being maimed, or killed. The Western media are not showing you the mothers, brothers or father killed while trying to protect their homes and families. They’re conveniently leaving that out because if you were aware of what Israel is doing, you would be outraged, and our leadership is guilty of allowing Israel to continue the slaughter of the Arabs of Gaza. The Western media are not showing you the celebration or gatherings of Israelis cheering on the destruction of homes, and death of civilians. If the media did its just job properly, the American people would be outraged!

What would our response be if a foreign power did such a thing to us or to any of our close allies? Do you think we would sit idly by and just watch? This is what our tax dollars are paying for. Each year we donate to Israel 3 Billion USD to help their war machine, and it is my opinion that we should no longer condone or even support this behavior by our “ally.”

It is my opinion that their is a financial incentive for Israel invade Gaza, that they are doing this for a financial gain, and not great moral ideas or justice. As an American, I can not, and I will not condone or support this aggressive action by Israel. This is not the Middle Eastern democracy I want to support, my conscience as an American, and sense of justice but most importantly my heart tells me so.

We Need Immigration Enforcement and Not Immigration Reform

There is talk on Capitol Hill on more immigration reform. President Obama says he’ll act without Congress and while the debate rages on what to do by our government, illegal aliens, better known as illegal immigrants have entered our republic illegally.

Why is this happening? Why can’t our leadership enforce our immigration laws? The answer is simple, it is because they have no interest in enforcing our immigration laws. This is all but a dog and pony show to get you, the American people, to believe that President Obama actually cares about illegal immigrants. A news flash for every one out there, if President Obama actually cared about solving the illegal immigration problem plaguing the southern United States, he would have put troops, or more border guards on our southern border.

Don’t believe me? The president of the United States is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, guess what? He has the authority to put troops on the border with Mexico and order them to enforce the border.

Notice how we are so quick to order troop deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries around the world, but we’re not so keen on sending troops on our borders to enforce the border. Ask yourself, why is that? You will than come to the realization that Barack Obama never intended to enforce the border in the first place. Him, and the likes of Nancy Pelosi with criminal intent are not honoring their oaths, they are committing open treason against the United States by not enforcing its laws thus bringing about anarchy in the land, which means they are committing treason by sedition.

It is my opinion that the real intent of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi is to bring in illegal immigrants, so that they can vote Democrat, and in effect create a one party system. Does this sound familiar courtesy of NAZI Germany? You see President Obama is taking over our republic by breaking down our laws, and as result is using this anarchy to justify his own existence as president, and thus eventually leading to the suspending of the U.S. Constitution.

It is the only conclusion of where this leads to because if you notice, as president of the United States, the president is charged with enforcing our laws. Ask yourself, why is it that he is making a huge effort to not enforce the current laws on the books? Why is it that he is saying there needs to be a path to citizenship? Why is it that he is refusing to enforce our borders? Why is it that he is actively doing nothing but to delay to resolve the problem? Any president worth their salt, any president who understands his or her oath to the United States, and the Constitution would not be stonewalling or pussy footing around the issue and would put a stop to the lawlessness now, and not later.

Also, why does the media and government insist on calling those individuals who have broken our immigration laws as “undocumented immigrant?” Why not call them for what they really are, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS or ILLEGAL ALIENS. This comes to show you that the mainstream media are in on it, too. Why do I say this? It is because if the media were doing its job properly, they would call things for what they really are and would not sugar coat it with a fancy buzz word. This is like calling a serial rapist or murderer a “misunderstood individual.” What is there to misunderstand, except that these individuals are ILLEGALLY here, and have thus broken our immigration laws.

The fact that illegal immigrant minors are being encouraged to come here testifies to the fact that this is done deliberatively shows you our governments knows what it is doing and as a result is allowing it to continue. Illegal immigrants get better treatment than our veterans or poor and this comes to show you the state of our republic and the disdain that President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and the likes thereof has for us. They’re interested in our laws, they’re interested in staying in power, and they’re interested in seeing how much money they can make off of the backs of hard working Americans.

 

My greatest fear, is that the only way to fix the problems now inherent in our republic is not through the ballot box, because it has shown time, and time again it is not working. The argument will soon be exhausted, the long war of words between the leaders of our republic and the American citizen will be waxed into a war of guns.

 

The American citizen, I am afraid, will come to the realization gradually and naturally in this furnace of debate, the ballots have been cast, our leaders have not honored their oaths, nothing has been done, and the citizenry will assume the mantle once held by our Southern Sister States in 1861, by the great Troup of Georgia: “The argument is exhausted; we stand to our guns.”
