Declaration of Independence

We fought foreign troops, brought in by our government to control us, on our soil


In recent discourse on FaceBook, we've discussed Trump's comment alluding to a Second Amendment [i.e., energized by the NRA] response to The Establishment should there be interference with the Presidential Election in November.  

We were challenged on that statement by a young PhD discussant who declared such an action to be treasonous, an allusion to a physical threat of assassination, and a misreading of the Second Amendment as the right of the People to take up weapons against their government.
We're DHS, and we're here to protect you

We disagree on all counts given the egregious actions of our sitting President, who has usurped the powers of Congress through a variety of means, in addition to his unchallenged Executive Orders, the expansion of the Department of Homeland Security to 240,000 employees and which has become his private army equipped with weapons of war, the implementation of Exercise Jade Helm -- a violation of Posse Comitatus which was, without question, a dry run for the imposition of Martial Law in those states where citizens are heavily armed, the introduction of foreign military forces to patrol our states, the threat of using Homeland Security forces to "supervise" our Presidential elections, and in short, a broad array of abuses of his power.


Our Continental Congress


We provide for your perusal a copy of our Forefathers' Declaration of Independence from England, whose colonial representatives abused their authority and imposed the equivalent of martial law, bringing in foreign troops to impose the King's authority on the colonial citizens.






We've highlighted in red those issues which remind us of current conditions which lead us to question the actions of both the Executive and Legislative branches of our government -  and grieve at the assassination of Justice Scalia, whose Constitutional interpretations were respected by legal experts both Liberal and Conservative - and whose would have been the prime influence over the Supreme Court in the event of a questionable election.

Consider this  a reminder of the history lessons on how our country was formed, and specifically the reasons we sought our independence from England rather than following in Canada's footsteps.  

Notably, Common Core has removed all references to both our Revolution and our Civil War so our kids are no longer exposed to this history in our school system.




IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 
— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, 
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. 
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 
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. 
— Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. 

The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. 
[Substitute Obama for "King"]

To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.  
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
[Note: Obama's Executive Orders bypass Congress]
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
[Note: Obama has removed senior military leadership and replaced them with political puppets]
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.
[Note:  Obama's DOJ has used the DOJ to persecute political enemies, but has ignored criminal activities of Democrats such as Hillary Clinton]
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
[Note:  Obama's expansion of the government bureaucracy, particularly Homeland Security, now at 240,000 employees, with heavy tactical Military armaments to become a de fact national police force]
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

[Obama has invited the UN military forces into the US to "maintain order"]
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury: [Patriot Act]
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offenses: [Patriot Act]
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
Illegals -- Mostly Military Age Men
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
[Note: Obama has invited the UN to bring in troops to maintain order in the US]
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.



In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Will the Establishment attempt to impose the New World Order on us by destroying our legitimate election process?
