Agenda21, Moo juice and Eminent Domain, OH MY! We are off to see the wizard…
The Rise of Tyranny in the constitutionally limited representative republic of the united States of America.
By the time you are done reading this article you will understand that the destruction of Private Property Rights WE THE PEOPLE are experiencing is far more troubling than most US Citizens realize. Quite simply, Private Property Rights destruction disguised as Judicial Case Law represents a regression in the advances of mankind. It represents a backwards step from Government based on the “Consent of the Governed” to previous philosophies of Government based on the “Divine Right of Kings”.
However, before you can understand the simple construct of this outrageous trespass this author must enlighten you with knowledge purposely withheld from your government education/indoctrination. It frustrates this author to have to explain certain topics that should be self-evident to most Americans. Our commonality of education, culture, history and experience in should have made these constructs 2nd nature by the age of 18.
Once you have read these 10 sections, the essence of these ideas will become crystal clear. This author believes that the perception of reality offered here nearly mirrors that of the Founding Fathers as they declared our independence and formulated this country, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.(Don’t be intimidated, I am no brighter than any of you.)
Our Intellectual journey will transpire following these 10 steps to Enlightenment:

2) PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS UNDER SIEGE
The issue at hand is private property rights.
Over the past few years, our property rights have been tremendously eroded.
UNITED NATIONS AGENDA 21
Most recently, property owners in Houston County Minnesota have had to defend their property rights from the attempted implementation of United Nations Agenda 21.
Houston County Minnesota Land Right Fight:Commissioner Tom Bjerke Calls US Constitution ‘Old Document’http://bit.ly/v4WfJnWicked Writ of Midwest elitists in Houston County MN https://t.co/KDchdUqALandowners File Lawsuit Against Houston County’s Illegal Land Grabhttp://bit.ly/umNUgtUnited Nations Agenda 21 http://bit.ly/w59isD
In summary, though it is not represented this way, Agenda 21 is one of the first subversive steps to bring the USA into the proposed New World Order. The Houston County Minnesota Landowners, concerned about their private Property Rights, have filed a lawsuit in federal court. In their lawsuit, the Houston County, Minnesota Landowners argue that their U.S. Constitutional rights have been violated. Houston County Commissioners want to be able to tell property owners what they can and can’t do with their own privately owned land. This is not the liberty our Founding Father’s had in mind.
The next violation of property rights has to do with owning cows and drinking raw milk.
Wisconsin Judge Rules No Right to Own a Cow or Drink Its Milk http://bit.ly/vsOLwF
Elkhart County Indiana Sheriff Brad Rogers intervenes against feds in raw milk case http://bit.ly/v4oKwc
In summary, various people want to be able to drink raw (more organic) milk because it tastes better and is healthier than pasteurized, homogenized milk. (Having grown up on a Wisconsin Dairy farm and drank raw milk for most of my youth, I can tell you I have a superior immune system and what doctors and dentist say is the densest bone they have ever seen)
But the government has some legitimate health concerns (and some less legitimate financial concerns.) Greatly abbreviated, the law states that raw milk cannot be sold to consumers for human consumption. (If you are not aware, let this author inform the reader that most family farm families’ drink raw milk with no detrimental health effects.)
Some consumers, wishing to comply with the law, have purchased milk cows and leased space from farmers so they can legally drink great tasting, more nutritional, content obvious raw milk. They pay the farmer to feed and milk their cow(s). The farmer deducts the feed, labor & rent costs from the sale of the milk and pays the difference to the owner of the milk cow. If the owner of the cow wants to drink some of the raw milk themselves instead of sell it, the farmer obliges.
In short, the owner of the cow wants to drink their private property raw organic milk from their own private property cow. Sheriff Brad Rogers is defending his constituents constitutionally guaranteed private property rights. Sheriff Brad Rogers appears to be an oathkeeper http://bit.ly/v2R9gt and takes his oath seriously.
The Federal government and judges have voided fundamental property rights ruling that NO ONE, not even the farmer & his family, can drink raw milk legally, even from their own private property. In this case the private property is the cow and the milk she produces and the owners private property rights have been wrongfully voided by judicial decree.
And lastly, let us consider this erosion of property rights disguised as case law via the expansion of the powers of Eminent Domain in or about 2005
The Supreme Court's decision in Kelo v. City of New London, 545 U.S. 469 (2005) http://bit.ly/uHfdQm affirmed the authority of New London, Connecticut, to take non-blighted private property by eminent domain, and then transfer it for a dollar a year to a private developer solely for the purpose of increasing municipal revenues.
Walser Auto Sales, Inc., et al., Respondents, vs. City of Richfield MN, et al., petitioners, Appellants. C4-01-694 SUPREME COURT OF MINNESOTA 644 N.W.2d 425; 2002 Minnhttp://bit.ly/slt4ZR
Best Buy, Walser Auto Sales and City of Richfield MinnesotaEminent Domain Revisited: A Minnesota Case http://nyti.ms/tq1Te5
Eminent Domain Abuse in Minnesota http://bit.ly/uSw93i
Public Power, Private Gain: Minnesota http://bit.ly/sD7XoJ
The Evolution of Eminent Domain http://bit.ly/s6ijvv
Laws of Minnesota 2006, chapter 214, amended Minnesota's existing eminent domain laws and clarified that "eminent domain may only be used for a public use or public purpose". http://bit.ly/rJS9Fd (Small conciliation for the Walser family) [Minnesotan’s should take not that this 2006 Chapter 214 language change is ineffective and unconstitutional]
As Simply as this, the Fifth Amendment imposes limitations on the exercise of eminent domain: the taking must be for public use and just compensation must be paid.
In summary, most of these cases involve a Government Entity taking private property from one private person and/or entity and giving it to another private party or entity. The courts have incorrectly ruled that “increasing the tax base” is a form of “public use” (See 6C)
It appears that most of WE THE PEOPLE, the rank and file citizens of the USA just assume the Government and the Judges must be right and simply just accept their rulings & positions. This is exactly wrong.
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedoms of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."
3) DIVINE RIGHT OF KINGS
Prior to The First Enlightenment 1650-1800AD, the overwhelmingly prevailing philosophy and basis of Governance was known as the “Divine Right of Kings” http://bit.ly/nD8gsJ http://bit.ly/tA2olL In essence, the rulers of various pieces of lands were held to be Gods &/or the Representatives of God(s) here on earth. No earthly person or entity could question their authority.
The portion of the “Divine Right of Kings” relevant to our discussion involves the “ownership” of property. Under the Divine Right of Kings system, essentially all land belonged to the King.
People were only allowed to use the land by consent of the king. Typically the King granted various personages such as nobles use of tracts of land in exchange for pledges of loyalty, payment of taxes and requirement to provide soldiers upon the request of the King.
And this 2nd layer of government would further subdivide the land to others in exchange for similar pledges of loyalty & taxes etc.
In essence, if you spoke against the king or any layer of government, you lost your property. If you could not pay your taxes, you were gone. If the King wanted to reward someone else with greater favor than you with a land grant and you were in the way, you were gone.
If tradition, religion and propaganda were not sufficient to keep the populace in check, there was always physical punishment.
If the deterrents of physical punishments of being drawn and quartered, hanged, racked, broken on the wheel or paired, were not enough there were other methods of control
If the deterrents of physical punishment did not work, imagine your family being kicked out of your home and place of business.
And if the King or his representatives felt your community did not property control you, the king could burn the community he owned to encourage greater vigilance against dissent. Imagine the oppression of peer pressure in this environment.
The point of this all being that under Government based on the Divine Right of Kings, there were no private property rights. And because there were no private property rights there was no freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press nor freedom to dissent with your government. Because at the absolute whim of the King, you and your family could be thrown out of house, home and business.
4) THE ENLIGHTENMENT 1650AD – 1800AD
The invention of the printing press in Europe circa 1440AD was a technological and societal leap. When printing presses spread through Europe, they eventually allowed the wide and rapid distribution of ideas and information which enabled the Enlightenment. http://bit.ly/u5KJv6
What was the Age of Enlightenment? With the benefit of time and perspective, Professor Dorinda Outram provided a standard, intellectual definition of the Enlightenment:
"…Enlightenment was a desire for human affairs to be guided by rationality rather than by faith, superstition, or revelation; a belief in the power of human reason to change society and liberate the individual from the restraints of custom or arbitrary authority; all backed up by a world view increasingly validated by science rather than by religion or tradition." [ http://amzn.to/93qVP4 ]
Cheap and easily produced Books, flyers, posters and newsletters gave rise to Debating Clubs, Coffee Houses and Universal Libraries. New information and ideas arose and were distributed so quickly that the status quo hierarchy of Aristocratic Government could not suppress them.
5) NATURAL LAW AKA LAWS OF NATURE
Natural law and Natural Rights follow from the nature of man and the world. We have the right to defend ourselves and our property, because of the kind of simply because of what we are. True law derives from this right, not from the arbitrary power of the omnipotent state. http://jim.com/rights.html
“Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation commonly called the first law of nature.”
Samuel Adams - The Rights of the Colonists, November 20, 1772 =-
Your rights, Your Natural Rights, do not come from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the President nor any other elected officials. Your Natural Law Rights are innate to every individual person. They are Unalienable. You have a personal duty and right preserve them.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self- preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property, and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."
Thomas Jefferson to John Colvin, 1810
Natural law theory eventually gave rise to a concept of "Natural Rights." John Locke argued that human beings in the state of nature are free and equal, yet insecure in their freedom. When they enter society they surrender only such rights as are necessary for their security and for the common good. Each individual retains fundamental prerogatives drawn from natural law relating to the integrity of person and property (natural rights). This natural rights theory provided a philosophical basis for both the American and French revolutions. http://bit.ly/tHozuf
“As a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.”
James Madison, National Gazette, March 27, 1792
SELF-DETERMINATION AND PROPERTY RIGHTS
The principles of The Enlightenment were altering the relationship between subjects/citizens with their Sovereigns / Governments. Before the enlightenment, under the Government Philosophy of the Divine Right of Kings, many people were considered property. They were bound to the land and could not move freely without the consent of the powers that be. There were no individual rights but rather permissions, or privileges that could be granted and revoked for any reason by the Monarchs and the ruling class. Further, most persons could not own property. The Enlightenment brought with it the concepts of self-determination and private property rights. And the monarchs and aristocracies that benefited most with the previous arrangement adamantly opposed changing the status quo. http://bit.ly/tHozuf
“From the outset, John Lockeopenly declared the remarkable theme of his political theory: in order to preserve the public good, the central function of government must be the protection of private property. http://bit.ly/vDh7GC
John Locke (2nd Treatise §3) 1690
“....the French Revolution (1789-1799) was the inevitable result of the radical opposition created in the eighteenth century between the monarchy and the authoritative figures of the Enlightenment. These authoritative figures (Men of Letters) of the Enlightenment constituted a sort of “substitute aristocracy that was both all-powerful and without real power”. This perception of their power came from the rise of “public opinion”, born when rigid ruling elites resisted adapting to principles of the Enlightenment and removed the nobility and the middle class from having input into the political sphere. This resulted in literature being published that promoted a discourse of equality (equality between Citizen and Sovereign) which most of the Monarchs of Europe opposed and resisted until removed by force.” http://bit.ly/tHozuf
Alexis de Tocqueville – Democracy in America -1835-1840
6) CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED – JOHN LOCKE 1690
Any civil government depends on the consent of those who are governed, which may be withdrawn at any time.
“Locke's political philosophy found its greatest expression in the Two Treatises of Civil Government, published anonymously during the same year that the Essay appeared under his own name. In the First TreatiseLocke offered a point-by-point critique of Robert Filmer's Patriarchia, a quasi-religious attempt to show that absolute monarchy is the natural system of human social organization. The Second Treatise on Government develops Locke's own detailed account of the origin, aims, and structure of any civil government. Adopting a general method similar to that of Hobbes, Locke imagined an original state of nature in which individuals rely upon their own strength, then described our escape from this primitive state by entering into a social contract under which the state provides protective services to its citizens. Unlike Hobbes, Locke regarded this contract as revokable. Any civil government depends on the consent of those who are governed, which may be withdrawn at any time.” http://bit.ly/vDh7GC
7) FOUNDING DOCUMENTS OF THE UNITED STATES
There are 3 primary documents that form the basis for our current form of Government: Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights with its additional amendments.
A) Declaration of Independence – 1776
First this author directs your attention to the Declaration of Independence. http://bit.ly/qXr3ib
The purpose of this exercise to provide proof that my perception of reality is very similar to the perception of reality the Founder’s used in drafting our Founding Documents.
Within the fist sentence of said document occurs the phrase “Laws of Nature” (aka Natural Law).
Within the second sentence of said document occurs the phrase “certain unalienable Rights”.
Within the third sentence of said document occurs the phrase “Consent of the Governed” (as opposed to the “Divine Right of Kings”)
While other language could be identified with the document to provide further proofs, this author is comfortable in believing that almost all of you will recognize these phrases as being reflective the frame of mind of the Founder’s in drafting this document.
Please note the date of the Declaration of Independence with regard to the time line of the Enlightenment 1650-1800AD.
B) Constitution – 1787
The Constitution http://1.usa.gov/soLG5r was primarily drafted by Thomas Jefferson, whom I have previously quoted.
“WE THE PEOPLE” reflect the intention for a Government with the “Consent of the Governed” as opposed previous status quo “Divine Right of Kings” under England’s King George.
The US Constitution does not explicitly grant Eminent Domain rights to the Federal Government. Such power is generally inferred today from clauses of Article 1 Section 8. This Section gives Congress authority to establish post offices and post roads as well as authority over property maintained for forts, arsenals and other similar facilities.
Further, the clauses in Article 1 appear to limit federal takings by requiring the “Consent of the Legislature of the State” http://bit.ly/s6ijvv
Again please note the Date of writing of the constitution relative to the Enlightenment Timeline 1650-1800AD
C) Bill of Rights – 1791
The Bill of Rights http://bit.ly/tf7B4Q was a compromise. Some Founders felt that the rights contained in the Bill of Rights were self evident and redundant. Others, like James Madison, insisted the fundamental rights be reduced to paper lest overtime they be forgotten or misinterpreted. James Madison authored much of the Bill of rights.
For our purposes, perhaps the most notable Amendments are the V, VII and 10th.
5TH AMENDMENT PROVISIONS CONCERNING PROSECUTION
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.
Property arises from the natural rights of individuals.
As Jefferson so eloquently put it in his paraphrase of John Locke, every person has a right to life that preexists the establishment of government. In other words, no one person or group of people, even if they call themselves “the government,” can take away the life of another.
Having a right to live presupposes having a right to maintain one’s life by acquiring food, shelter, clothing and the other incidentals necessary to live. This is the essence of the second inalienable right, that to liberty. Individuals must be at liberty, free to employ their faculties in the effort to procure the elements necessary to continued life. http://bit.ly/vFo8kw
Paraphrasing Thomas Jefferson
When it came time to draft the United States Constitution, differing views on eminent domain were voiced. Thomas Jefferson favored eliminating all remnants of feudalism, and pushed for allodial ownership (see http://bit.ly/tesoSh ). James Madison, who wrote the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, had a more moderate view, and struck a compromise that sought to at least protect property rights somewhat by explicitly mandating compensation and using the term "public use" rather than "public purpose", "public interest", or "public benefit" http://bit.ly/s6ijvv Page 7&8
In the words of Bruce L. Benson:
“The backlash against the Kelo decision that is playing out in state legislatures all over the country (López and Totah 2007) is another episode in a long series of reactions against government officials’ ever-present incentive to expand the scope and strength of the claim that the state is the actual property owner and that private landholders are only stewards for the state.”http://bit.ly/s6ijvv
7TH AMENDMENT RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY
Judges are supposed to be like sports referees or Court Traffic Cops. WE THE PEOPLE are supposed to be judged by a jury of our peers. Instead by gradual increment and machination, Judges often decide cases. They do this with faulty jury instructions or by out right Summary Judgment. They also do this by failing to inform juries of their ability to constitutionally exercise “Jury Nullification” http://bit.ly/sgWgFA . This author submits that a properly informed jury of your peers would not reach the conclusions our systemically corrupt judicial system has made regarding property rights.
“The American Judicial System is the best appearance of justice that money can buy!” http://bit.ly/tJDyxV
10TH AMENDMENT - RIGHTS OF THE STATES UNDER CONSTITUTION
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The Constitution only granted the “taking” of property for Public use. The 5th Amendment prohibited the “taking” of private property for any thing other than “public use” Ergo, The Federal Government does not have the power and the State are prohibited from exercising the power to “Take” private property for anything other than “public use”
“For a man's house is his castle, et domus sua cuique tutissimum refugium”(One's home is the safest refuge for all) http://anse.rs/t4Ce3u
English jurist Sir Edward Coke (1552-1634)
There are other many documents that should be consulted and considered when reading and interpreting these documents. Among the Most important are documents known as the Federalist Papers http://1.usa.gov/uj3hrJ and the Anti-Federalist Papers http://bit.ly/thKUy6 .
"Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government."
James Madison, 4th President of the USA, Author of the USA Bill of Rights
8) JURISPRUDENCE AND THE RULE OF LAW
Before we go further, we must discuss the concept known as the Rule of Law.
According to LexisNexis :
“The Rule of Law, in its most basic form, is the principle that no one is above the law. The rule follows logically from the idea that truth, and therefore law, is based upon fundamental principles which can be discovered, but which cannot be created through an act of will.
The most important application of the rule of law is the principle that governmental authority is legitimately exercised only in accordance with written, publicly disclosed laws adopted and enforced in accordance with established procedural steps that are referred to as due process. The principle is intended to be a safeguard against arbitrary governance, whether by a totalitarian leader or by mob rule. Thus, the rule of law is hostile both to dictatorship and to anarchy.” http://bit.ly/tEQuLv
Under concept of the Rule of Law and the practice of jurisprudence that our judiciary alleges it practices, there is supposed to exist a hierarchy of laws. Essentially, lower ranking laws and legal precedent cannot conflict with higher laws and legal precedent. Therefore the hierarchy is:
Declaration of Independence
Constitution and Bill of Rights
Federal judicial Case Law
State Judicial Case Law
As we know, under Natural Law, all persons have private property rights. All persons have the right to use their private property as they deem fit. Land, homes, Cows and Milk is private property which all persons who are owners have rights to.
The Declaration of Independence makes specific reference to the “Laws of Nature” and “certain unalienable rights” These Laws of Nature and “certain unalienable rights” refer to Natural Law and Natural Rights, respectively.
As we noted in the 5th Amendment of the Bill of Rights
No person shall…be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.
Essentially the 5th amendment says that private property can only be “taken”, according to Constitution Article 1, Section 8, for “Public Use”. For example, to build roads and bridges, forts or Government Buildings like courthouses and Post offices And then, only after the owner is given just compensation.
Natural Law Property Rights are unalienable.
The Declaration of Independence states that certain rights are unalienable pursuant to the Laws of Nature.
As we know from our previous reference, the 5th Amendment speaks directly to the subject of Eminent Domain. Private Property can only be taken for public use. And Constitution article 1, Section 8 gives “public use” examples as roads, post offices and forts, etc. This specific language, “public use”, was a compromise between Thomas Jefferson who wanted no chance for a return to feudalism http://bit.ly/vonyzH through eminent domain and James Madison who felt otherwise. James Madison himself authored the 5th Amendment and used the specific language “public use” to limit the power of the Government in taking private property from private owners.
“Rise of Modern Feudalism
Property Rights - A parallel system of Feudalism has arisen in American. Each County (and some cities) in America has/have become a Fiefdoms. The Wages of the Government Employees have become much greater than their counter parts in the private sector. Simple logic dictates that if the average wages / compensation package of Government greatly exceeds the income of private citizens, certain private citizens will no longer be able to pay the tax tribute to the ruling class at the County Governments Demand. The private citizens of the Modern Fiefdoms are struggling under the weight of the burden of tribute while the ruling class turns a blind eye to the suffering of the Property owners and renters. And eventually the County Lords send the Sheriff to remove those who cannot pay the tribute from the land. (Don't believe me, stop paying your property taxes.)…” http://bit.ly/trgDto
Don Mashak 2011
Again, the principle of Jurisprudence that our judiciary alleges it practices, calls for the Rule of Law to be applied to the facts in evidence.
Pursuant to the alleged practice of Jurisprudence, the lower ranking Judicial Case Law cannot conflict with Natural Law, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution nor the Bill of Rights. (Nor, in most cases, can it conflict with Federal Law – Save to declare a Federal Law unconstitutional)
Natural Law cannot be amended, It is unalienable.
The Declaration of Independence cannot be amended.
The Constitution and Bill of Rights can only be amended by a specific method, which has not occurred here.
“At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance. In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life, if secured against all liability to account.”
Thomas Jefferson, letter to Monsieur A. Coray, Oct 31, 1823
In each of these 3 examples, the Facts in Evidence are that the Government wants to take part or all of the rights to private property away from a private property owner.
The Facts in Evidence in each of our 3 examples is that the Government is not trying to condemn the property to use as a post office, a road, a fort, a courthouse or some other authorized publicly used improvement.
The Rule of Law in each of these 3 instances is that Government cannot “take” private property for any purpose other than “public use”
Ergo, applying the Rule of Law to the facts in evidence should yield:
That the Government is trying to take private property rights away from private owners for reasons other than those permitted in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Permitting the Government to force this transaction cannot to occur is not possible because none of them are for the specific purpose of condemning private property for the narrow reason of “public use” spelled out in the 5th Amendment. Private property rights are unalienable. To allow this forced “Taking” of private property under these circumstances would be a violation of Natural Law and completely UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
“Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure”
It is apparent from our lesson that these Judges ignored the Rule of Law in reaching these decisions in case law.
In those instances which have not yet been adjudicated, it is clear our elected officials have passed or allowed to be enacted laws that are unconstitutional.
If we are not to descend into anarchy, Judicial Case Law must follow the Rule of Law. Judicial Case Law violates WE THE PEOPLE’s Natural Law Rights, the constitution and the Bill of Rights when it does not adhere to the Rule of Law.
Only in the vacuum of Anarchy can whims, bribes, promises of advancement and/or other consideration influence the outcome of a Judicial Case Law Decision. No matter what the value of the enticements, the judiciary is not allowed to break the Rule of Law. Especially Founding Documents like the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Clearly the United States Judiciary has no respect for WE THE PEOPLE. And to remind you again:
“Any civil government depends on the consent of those who are governed, which may be withdrawn at any time.”http://bit.ly/vDh7GC
Clearly the elected officials and Judiciary of the United States have not and do not act in the best Interests of WE THE PEOPLE.
“A free people [claim] their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate. “
Thomas Jefferson -= Rights of British America, 1774 =-
Clearly, and by definition, by not making Case Law findings consistent with the Rule of Law, our Courts have been making rulings in Case Law in accordance with the philosophy of the Divine Right of Kings.
Now that your property rights have been explained to you, doesn’t the concept of what has been written here seem obvious and 2nd nature to you?.... Just as this author promised. You now know the purpose of the dumbing down of America by excluding this curriculum from our public school educations.
“A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”
James Madison -= letter to W.T. Barry, August 4, 1822=-
You now know what your private property rights are and where they derive from. Unalienable Natural Law!
By this point you should be outraged at what the corrupt, incumbent, ruling class elite have done to erase your Natural Law and Constitutional Rights.
“Knowledge is Power and Freedom. So armed, you must demand restoration of your liberties!
“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. “
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
10) WHAT NOW?
The Most obvious course of action is to call your elected officials and demand they repeal this case law and impeach these Judges who would like to be kings. Yet this would merely be stop gap measure, with no long term effect. Whence this generation would pass away, the would-be tyrants would be free to try again, with our Federal and State Legislators more than happy to aid and abet. What follows this quote is the longer, more permanent course of action.
Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent. “
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
It has taken me about 7000 words to communicate these concepts of Natural Law. These concepts should be 2nd nature to all Americans. How can WE THE PEOPLE protect ourselves from tyranny if we cannot quickly recognize it? How can we effectively mobilize ourselves is cannot easily communicate the cause of alarm easily to our fellow citizens.
Instead of 7000 words, it should have taken me about 3 sentences with a few buzz words like Natural Law, unconstitutional, liberty and tyranny in the mix.
This author finds himself personally handicapped in trying to communicate with members of the TEA Party and Occupy Movements. Conservatives communicate from a false Elite espoused propaganda perspective of reality where they view all Liberals as lazy freeloaders. Liberals Communicate from a elite espoused propaganda perspective of reality where all Conservatives being banksters and robber barons.
Both of these perspectives of reality are false paradigms use by the left and right halves of the 1 and only 1 corrupt, incumbent, ruling class elite to divide and conquer the Rank and File of WE THE PEOPLE. These false political paradigms serve only the interests of the single ruling class.
“The are not 2 major political parties in the USA” http://bit.ly/uCyINS
Don Mashak, The Cynical Patriot 2011
All the time we rank and file Americans fight amongst ourselves in this false political paradigm, the corrupt, incumbent, ruling class elite merrily continue erase our liberties and rip us all off.
It is frustrating for this author to be unable to communicate in the language of the more equitable Natural law perspective of Reality. It is this author’s great hope that as more of his fellow citizens adopt a Natural Law perception of reality, WE THE PEOPLE will be possible to break the cycle of tyranny that surrounds us.
“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.”
J. Edgar Hoover - FBI Director 1924-1972 - The Elks Magazine (August 1956)
It is time for each of us to make a decision. We have documented that the Judges are ignoring the Rule of Law. None of these judges have been impeached by their Respective Federal or State Legislative Body. We can therefore deduce that none of our elected officials are working best interests of rank and file Americans.
It is time to get out of your comfort zone. Turn off Star Dancing, Idle USA, housewives and Pro-Sports.
Don’t tell me how much you love your spouse and kids if you are not wiling to invest your time in the next 11 months to voting these corrupt tyrannical bums out. http://GOOOH.com
“…And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?...”
Thomas Jefferson Letter to William Stephens Smith (13 November 1787), quoted in Padover's Jefferson on Democracy
Stop avoiding confrontation with elected officials and Government bureaucrats. Stop substituting the Boob Tube and Games to avoid real life pain and discomfort. Stop living life vicariously.
“Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice.”
It is time WE THE PEOPLE educate ourselves and our children on our history, Natural Law and our Constitution.
“Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it.”
Edmund Burke (British Statesman and Philosopher 1729-1797)
It is time to educate your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. The people of the Enlightenment reduced to writing and spread the concepts of Natural Law with only primitive printing presses. We have the internet. We have no excuses.
From now on when WE THE PEOPLE must be able to quickly identify & communicate all attempts by any Government official to subvert “Natural Law” and WE THE PEOPLE’s “private property rights”
With that this author will boldly asserts that the failure by our Government and Schools to impart to WE THE PEOPLE this fundamental element of our history and culture was a deliberate act. A deliberate incremental move to deprive WE THE PEOPLE with the ability to defend ourselves from tyranny.
Almost all of these documents and quotes I have cited are our heritage? This is the story of the mankind’s break from Government philosophy of Divine Right of Kings to consent of the governed. How can that not be made interesting to High School Seniors? Of all the things to teach in this world, How can anything be more important that The Enlightenment and the articulation of the concepts of Natural Law? And so by inference and experience this author again asserts the failure to teach Natural Law was maliciously deliberate by people who dream to be tyrants.
The tyranny that surrounds us got away with Kelo v City of New London & Walser v City of Richfield because WE THE PEOPLE were not informed of Natural Law.
WE THE PEOPLE must make sure our future generations are educated in Natural Law so they are not vulnerable to the one corrupt, incumbent, ruling class elite. The future generations must to armed with this knowledge so they know the basis for lawfully reversing this unconstitutional erosions of our Natural Law Liberties. WE THE PEOPLE must either personally teach these Natural Law principles to our children, or incrementally we will lose our liberties until WE THE PEOPLE are fully enslaved.
“Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.”
John Adams -= Defense of the Constitutions, 1787
Call the School Board Chair, go to a School Board Meeting and/or give this article to your schools Citizen Curriculum Review Board. Ask them why these fundamental concepts which are necessary for the functioning of our government & retention of our liberties are not being taught.
"It should be your care, therefore, and mine, to elevate the minds of our children and exalt their courage; to accelerate and animate their industry and activity; to excite in them an habitual contempt of meanness, abhorrence of injustice and inhumanity, and an ambition to excel in every capacity, faculty, and virtue. If we suffer their minds to grovel and creep in infancy, they will grovel all their lives.”
John Adams, 2nd President of the USA
Challenge all High School teachers to spend one week in January 2012 teaching on The Enlightenment (1650AD-1800AD), Natural Law & their relationship to the US Constitution. High School Teachers and College Professors you are the Modern day equivalents of the Enlightenments “Men of Letters” http://bit.ly/vn3v4N We would ask you to enthusiastically join we Rank and File Americans as we embark on this 2nd Enlightenment of Mankind. Please do not abandon WE THE PEOPLE to the savages of the elites in exchange for grants and creature comforts. (Perhaps it would be a simplest for you to assign term papers on The Enlightenment, Natural Law or simply confirming or debunking my the facts and assertions of this article.) I point out to Teachers and Professers that the Men of Letter formulated and reduced to writing the concept of Natural Law, raised public awareness and knowledge & topped governments with only primitive printing presses. You have the internet and public classrooms and only have to share the knowledge already assembled. Your requested task by comparison is far easier but no less important than the original Men of Letters.
Before more is stead, WE THE PEOPLE must vow to exhaust all peaceful political avenues before we consider anything else. Each of us must get involved in your local “Basic Political Unit” (BPU) of your preferred political party. And then the real challenge is holding them accountable. Don’t go along to get along.
“The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.”
Ask the tough questions. Demand to interview candidates. Don’t let calls by some to limit debate so they can go home succeed. Be a delegate to District and State Caucuses. Run for office yourself. Dog Catcher to president, it does not matter. Just run. If you are in a primary state, vote. Volunteer to be an election judge. Get involved. Organize your friends and neighbors. Volunteer for a candidate. Do something.
Demand Judicial Reform and restoration of the Rule of Law.
Demand that all City, School, County, State and Federal Budgets be posted on the internet in laymans terms with no aggregates greater than $100.00. If our elected officials cannot find the waste and fraud, let each of WE THE PEOPLE act as auditors & do it for them.
Restoration of our Natural Law Rights, the Constitution & the Bill of Rights should be the number one issue of 2012. Transparency, Accountability & Reform should be the battle cry of Election 2012.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. “
By these 7000 words, tyrants among us have been exposed & must inevitably falter and fall.
But the question is, “What Resolution will you make to accelerate the restoration of our Natural Law Rights, the Constitution & the Bill of Rights?”
