9/11 & Our Freedom

The 9/11 attacks on America, undoubtedly, gave us some of the most profound changes to our national security. Since that fateful day, we've launched wars, killed terrorists and made significant changes to our national policies that were very necessary at the time. When the American people witnessed the attacks, there was an immediate need to keep the peace and to establish order.

We allowed the government extra liberties and power, during a national crisis, to help maintain and restore order to the country. We sacrificed a great deal of our American freedoms in order to catch the people responsible for these heinous attacks and to protect our future from additional assaults.

It is time, however, that WE THE PEOPLE take back the authority and demand accountability for the governments actions. We need to stand up and let "big brother" know that we will no longer stand for these injustices, that we do not accept unwarranted intrusions into our privacy, that we do not accept police brutality, that we do not accept militarizing our police forces and that we will no longer accept a government that hides its actions from its people.

Understand that if we do not demand accountability from the government and start to push back against the growing suspicions of FREE AND INNOCENT people, we will eventually pass a point of no return and enter into a dark time where we have no freedom, liberty or justice. A dark time where our country sacrifices the freedom and rights of its people under the auspices of a false threat to the nation.

Tyrannical leaders and corporations are twisting the law and eroding our freedoms, keeping us unhealthy and uneducated, ensuring that we are fearful of one another and dependent on the "Machine" to keep us safe. With poverty levels and unemployment soaring, hunger and starvation present in our country and programs designed to help people being eroded, a systematic effort to eliminate the American Dream has been in place for a long time now.

Never forget, it is up to each and every one of us to demand government accountability and to force the changes we want to see.

The time to act and be free is now. You may not have the opportunity tomorrow.

Who Watches the Watchmen?

With the severe level of surveillance being done to United States Citizens, GPS, Automatic License Plate Tracking, Cellphone Recordings, IP Address Recording and all the rest, it makes me wonder why there are no tracking devices for our police forces? UAV's in the air, recording our movements, police patrol cars on the streets and officers walking on foot, these things should have ACCOUNTABILITY to the point of being tracked as well.

If we are paying these public servants to do these jobs, they should be held accountable for there whereabouts and be tracked with more scrutiny than a free American citizen. Law Enforcement Officers should have a tracking system in place to ensure they are where they are supposed to be, to ensure they are following the law and doing their duties and to be held to a much higher standard than your average citizen.

Police Officers are whining about GPS Tracking for them, saying that "How long will it be before someone hacks into the system to evade police?"

Please. I am not interested in that, that is an issue with the network security just like EVERY OTHER NETWORK out there. What I am concerned about is why the police immediately cry foul when they will be forced to have accountability for their locations, actions and duties. After all, are they not public servants? Are they not doing a PUBLIC job and, as such, should have their PUBLIC duties recorded to ensure fair practices?   

If this country was fair, it would ensure that all public officials have a tracking system in place to make sure they are doing their duty. If they go over the speed limit while on duty with no cause? They will get called on it. Police have been doing this for years. What about if they stop off at a friends house to watch a football game during their duty hours? It's happened. What about that clandestine meeting where some "favors" are traded for turning a blind eye?

You bet your ass I want to know what's going on and when the police want to subpena my locations, tracking devices, facial recognition, credit card spending, cell phones, computer IP addresses and everything else, I want to hold them to the same standards.


Don't like it? Then don't force it on us.

Surveillance Intrusions

The United States Government claims a broad and sweeping authority, under the Patriot Act to collect a record of every single phone call made by every single American "on an ongoing daily basis." This program not only exceeds the authority of the government by Congress, but it violates the right of privacy protected by the Fourth Amendment, and the rights of free speech and association protected by the First Amendment.

Despite how many demands have been made to the NSA and other organizations operating under the Patriot Act, no actual reports of the extent of these intrusions have been given or any sufficient information provided to govern the limits of the extent of the surveillance on American citizens.

What I don't understand is how the American People can stand by and allow this to happen. If enough people rally under a banner of ACCOUNTABILITY the United States Government, The National Security Agency and all of the other organizations hiding behind the Patriot Act will have to cease and desist these unconstitutional broad-spectrum intrusions into our privacy and will be held accountable for the past decade of lawless behavior.

Stand up for your rights as American Citizens. If you don't ... who will?

Cops: The Good Guys

I've been getting some interesting correspondence about these blog posts and I wanted to point something out, just to clarify, for those who may be wondering.


There are some officers who actually do believe the creed and oath they take, who understand that it is their sworn duty to protect and serve the people and to put real criminals behind bars. These officers are the shining stars of the Police Force and they represent exactly what all police officers should strive to be.

The unfortunate truth, however, is that there are a lot of officers who when they are given a badge, they believe that it gives them some power higher than the law. That somehow they become an authority beyond reproach of the law and that it gives them a new set of rights and laws to abide by.

When you encounter a police officer please keep in mind that, for the most part, they are just as nervous as you are and that they are just as aware of the threat that YOU could potentially pose to them. Unfortunately, some police officers take this potential threat to extremes, but most of the time they just want to be able to go home to their families at the end of the day.

Based on the low-end estimate of traffic encounters, the risk of homicide during a traffic stop ranged from a low of one in ten million in 1988 and 1990 to a high of one in 4.6 million in 1991. On average, over a ten-year period, the risk of homicide to a police officer during a traffic encounter was one in 6.7 million.

There is no evidence that these estimates have raised much since that time, keeping the average police assault at these stops still in the ONE in SIX MILLION chance. While these numbers may still be frightening, they do not give any reason or right to abuse authority by treating every stop as a guaranteed threat on your life.

Right now (4/24/2014) there are petitions in place to send police officers to special training to ensure that they are instructed on how to interact with CIVILIANS and not some sort of enemy combatant, training to reeducate police that they are not in a war (as current training would have them believe) and that they should not treat average American citizens as enemy soldiers or threats.

I, personally, agree with this need.

Police Lies and Coercion

I have mentioned before the the Police not only have the right but are encouraged to lie to you during interrogations (what they call "Interviews" to avoid frightening terminology, another lie) but these lies often become brutal acts of coercion and psychological torture, combined with the physical intimidation of armed officers looming over you in a dark room, it can be an excruciating experience.

Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman, in New York Court of Appeals, ruled that "It is well established that not all deception of a suspect is coercive, but in extreme forms it may be," Lippman wrote and that the interrogation techniques and lies had "Completely undermined" the right to remain silent and not incriminate oneself.

Police have used these acts of terrorism for decades, forcing confessions of crimes that were not committed in order to "reduce a sentence of a case they WILL convict you on" and that if you sign some arbitrary confession, it will somehow help you in the end.

In addition to direct lies, the police will also stage "accidental" meetings and observations of multiple suspects, in  hopes that one will turn on the other or somehow become so infuriated that they incriminate the other party or themselves in these trumped up charges.

Now, don't get me wrong, I do believe that those who have GENUINELY broken the law deserve to be punished appropriately, but falsely stating "facts" in order to frighten an innocent person into confessing to a crime they did not commit, simply because the police have no other recourse or evidence or simply have grown impatient at the "Due Process" procedure, is immoral and illegal.

Understand this, if you do confess to a crime you did not commit, this "evidence" is nearly all the police and the local District Attorney need to send you to jail for a very long time. No matter what, make sure you follow these guidelines:

 Also remember that "Pleading the 5th" is not an admission of guilt. Police, Press and ignorant people believe that by "Refusing to speak so you do not incriminate yourself" is an admission of guilt. It does not mean that you will incriminate yourself for the crime they are interrorgating you for, but for ANYTHING THAT YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE USED AGAINST YOU regardless of what they may claim.

They WILL lie to you, so protect yourself against incriminating yourself by not answering questions without some legal council.

These underhanded tactics, lies and torturous techniques should be abolished but with the sheer volume of people in United States prisons that are serving huge sentences for things they may not have done, there is very little chance of these methods being taken away anytime soon.

The American Dream

In the America I envision, due process, freedom and liberty are given to everyone and the courts, police and media would see people as Innocent Until Proven Guilty. Unfortunately, in the America I wake up to see, some people are Guilty before they ever get a chance to prove their innocence.

I fly an American Flag from sun up to sun down. It is taken from its case and the pole with all prescribed honor and dignity, a ritual worthy of a great nations symbol of freedom and liberty. I believe in America and the freedoms we used to have. I believe in an America where people actually stopped to say hello to a stranger, rather than automatically assuming them guilty of something.

I believe in an America where the PEOPLE gave government authority and those elected officials, agencies and organizations were held accountable for their actions. When the threat of impeachment was a real and serious threat, one that carried weight and power. I believe in an America where the freedom to peacefully protest was a right and that the assembled police force was there to protect the PROTESTOR and not to abuse, incriminate and assault them.

I have a great deal of hope for America, but in order to see actual change, Americans need to stand up, read, get involved and become willing to make the hard choice to fight for the right things, to stand together and unify. Once we become "ONE NATION" again, then the injustice and criminal behavior of our government will be called into question and those responsible will be held accountable.

There was once a dream ... a dream of a nation of free men and women who fought against Tyranny and would never stand for it in their country. This dream was America.

Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, people stopped dreaming.

War Crimes

The United States Government has been fighting "The War On Drugs" for decades in a campaign to rid the united states of criminal drug activity. Because of this war, there have been thousands of cases of crimes of war against people on United States Soil.

 While at "War" both the military and the police agencies in charge of the "War on Drugs" have committed heinous acts of violence and violations of civil rights, violations of common codes of ethics and a dozen other violations of due process, freedom and liberty. Under the guise of this "War" the police have acted in atrocious ways against citizens of the United States of America. When you combine the militarization of the police with this absurd "War on Drugs", you have a recipe for disaster.

These organizations should be held accountable under the War Crimes act for their inhuman behavior.

Criminal Behavior

Do the police also fall under this organized crime charges? We have thousands upon thousands of pieces of video evidence, court cases where police abuse, assault, murder, maim, destroy, torture and rape innocent people.

9-110.800      Violent Crimes in Aid of Racketeering Activity (18 U.S.C. § 1959) 

Section 1959 makes it a crime to commit any of a list of violent crimes in return for pecuniary compensation from an enterprise engaged in racketeering activity, or for the purpose of joining, remaining with, or advancing in such an enterprise. The listed violent crimes are murder, kidnapping, maiming, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault resulting in serious bodily injury, and threatening to commit a "crime of violence," as defined in 18 U.S.C. § 16. The listed crimes may be violations of State or Federal law. In addition, attempts and conspiracies to commit the listed crimes are covered. The maximum penalty varies with the particular violent crime involved, ranging from a fine and/or three years imprisonment up to a fine and/or life imprisonment, except for any murder occurring on or after September 13, 1994, which are subject to the death penalty. 

Under 18 U.S.C  § 1959, anyone committing a crime while in an organization in order to receive compensation or advancement are guilty and the organization is as well. While the police departments do their best to coverup and abolish the criminal charges against their gang members (officers) the precedent of conviction of these criminals has already been established. In order to move up in the criminal ranks of their police organization, officers are required to make as many arrests as possible to bolster their credibility with their fellow criminals and advance in prestige, compensation and rank. 

Officers who claim they were "doing their duty" but were also still found guilty of criminal activity were only doing what they were trained to do. The police are not there to help or protect, to serve or assist, they exist to find a way of putting people into jail. 

Over-Criminalization and abuse of authority are made easier by the militarization of the police forces in the United States of America. Billions of dollars' worth of military weapons and equipment is available to local police departments through grant programs administered by federal agencies such as the Departments of Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security. 

Sic Semper Tyrannis - Ending Tyranny in America

Sic Semper Tyrannis: "Thus always to Tyrants"

The Tyrannical rule of the United States Government is something that has been slowly encroaching on the lives of the Free People of America for some time now. Rules and regulations that erode our rights and freedoms, militarization of our police forces, unlawful violations of our privacy and the indoctrination of our school children are just a few examples of the Corporate-Government takeover of our inalienable freedoms as American Citizens. 

Thomas Jefferson once said: "The Tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

The Seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia, is in fact, Sic Semper Tyrannis a public declaration to end the tyranny in the state as well as the country. 

We as American citizens not only have the right but the obligation to fight back against tyrannical government organizations that infringe on our rights and freedoms by asserting our authority as the power of America. WE give those in government the ability to govern us, we select and elect them from a chosen pool of representatives and, if we do not like what they are doing, we have the authority and the duty to eliminate that wrongdoing by impeaching, disbarring, or DISBANDING those organizations or individuals who fail to uphold the standards of the American Bill of Rights. 

Totalitarian organizations like the NSA and The Department of Homeland Security are waging a war against our freedoms by engaging in unlawful search and seizures, spying and surveillance and criminal negligence of our rights and freedoms but we allow them to continue to exist because the American populace has been brainwashed into believing we are under a constant threat from a foreign power. 

The threat we face is DOMESTIC terrorism. 

The Declaration of Independence states: " But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." 

Now is the time to throw off such a corrupt government. If we continue to allow the government to strip us of our freedoms and rights, under the guise of public and national security, we will lose all resemblance of being the United States of America and become just another dictatorship that abuses its people. 

We must continue to exercise our rights, become educated on those rights and to organize ourselves in peaceful assembly to stress the importance of those rights. 

The Police and You

The Police Force in the United States are there to serve and protect, yes, but it is their job and obligation to put you in jail. They are NOT there to be your friends, while on duty, a police officer will do whatever it takes to find you guilty of a crime and to put you in jail or court because of that crime.

The Police Force has always had its share of both law abiding members and criminal members, those who break the rights and laws of the free people of the United States by asserting their "authority" into situations where it is not warranted.

In recent years, the availability of technology such as The GoPro Hero provides us with an inexpensive method of protecting ourselves in police encounters by documenting the encounter with audio and visual evidence.

Please Note: Some police officers may tell you it is unlawful to record them. THIS IS A LIE.

Police officers are public servants and, as such, they are allowed to be filmed and recorded without giving express permission and it is UNLAWFUL for them to demand, seize, threaten or otherwise prohibit you from filming them during their duties.

Arm and Educate yourself against corruption.

Inalienable Rights

Tragic and unnecessary events have forced "We The People" to combat, with all appropriate force, the unlawful practices of the, so called, peace keepers and law makers of our country.

This blog is, among other things, a public statement to my very serious outcry of unlawful behavior by those WE APPOINT to govern our republic.

Inalienable Rights are those rights granted to us by "Our Creator", whatever that may mean to you, and as such are not subject to withdraw or removal.

Please note: I do not have anything against Government I have something against Unlawful Government and the unlawful practices that these ELECTED representatives are guilty of in the process of their duties as elected officials.

I do not, under any circumstances, condone unlawful behavior from anyone.
