Establishing the National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council

In American Sovereign on June 18, 2010 at 11:44 am
Although the Health Care Bill has already passed I believe it is still necessary for me to update my blog readers on the latest developments about the new law. One of the major concerns expressed by me and other Constitutional lawyers was the fact that this legislation was basically adopted without being read by most members of Congress and it is what is being called “fill in the blanks legislation.” By that I mean that Congress granted broad authority to the President and his appointees to adopt whatever regulations they want to expand the law and enforce it. Several events have already occurred in this area.First and foremost, the repeated pledges made by Obama to the American people that under the law they would be allowed to keep their current health care plans and the doctors they have chosen have now been negated. According to reports by FOX News and other sources, the regulations being adopted will directly affect the coverage provided by employers to employees. If the employer decides to change insurance providers or if even minor changes are made to the coverage such as a change in the co-pays or prescription drug benefits, the entire policies will be thrown out and employers and employees will be required to go through the Federal Government to get new coverage approved by Washington bureaucrats. This will change both the type of coverage and the names of the doctors that can be seen.

It is not surprising that these regulations will not apply to members of labor unions. Their plans are “grandfathered” in and will not be affected by these regulations. They are the only ones exempt from the new regulations. Unfortunately, millions of other Americans will potentially lose their current coverage. This is clearly a violation of the authority given to Congress or the Executive Branch of Government by the Constitution.

In addition, on June 10, 2010 President Obama issued an Executive Order in conjunction with the new health care legislation. The order is titled: “Establishing the National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council.” The entire order can be found on the official White House website at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/executive-order-establishing-national-prevention-health-promotion-and-public-health

There is also an Advisory Group established that is required to provide certain reports and recommendations to the Council. The most troubling report called for is contained in Section 6 C of the order that states:  “(c) contains a list of national priorities on health promotion and disease prevention to address lifestyle behavior modification (including smoking cessation, proper nutrition, appropriate exercise, mental health, behavioral health, substance-use disorder, and domestic violence screenings) and the prevention measures for the five leading disease killers in the United States;”

What exactly is behavior health modification and where is the Constitutional authority for the Federal government to try and modify or control the behavior of the American people when it comes to things like what we eat and the amount of exercise we must have? What will the government be looking at when it comes to our “mental health” and “behavioral health?” In the former Soviet Union people who opposed the Communist form of government were regularly committed to mental institutions and in Communist China those who exhibited behavior contrary to that mandated by the State were sent to “re-education camps” in order to modify their behavior.

This is an Orwellian concept far outside of what is acceptable in a free nation and frankly just a few years ago I would have laughed at anyone who suggested that this could occur in the United States of America. Yet, from the standpoint of one who supports our Constitution, I find the language in this Executive Order very dangerous. Moreover, at the beginning of the Executive order Obama says this:  “By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including section 4001 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148), it is hereby ordered as follows:”

I beg to disagree Mr. President. While Section 4001 of the Health Care Bill may claim to give you this authority, the Constitution of the United States, that you took an oath to defend and uphold, does not give you any such authority. Unless I am violating an existing Federal or State criminal law, nothing I say or do as an American citizen is subject to your control.

Barack Obama Has Awakened A Sleeping Nation

In American Sovereign on June 14, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Barack Obama Has Awakened A Sleeping Nation
Gary Hubbell
Aspen Times Weekly          February 2010

Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America’s future. He is the best thing ever.

Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America’s resurrection. Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

That’s why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America.

Obama is the symbol of a creeping liberalism that has infected our society like a cancer for the last 100 years. Just as Hitler is the face of fascism, Obama will go down in history as the face of unchecked liberalism. The cancer metastasized to the point where it could no longer be ignored.

Average Americans who have quietly gone about their lives, earning a paycheck, contributing to their favorite charities, going to high school football games on Friday night, spending their weekends at the beach or on hunting trips – they’ve gotten off the fence. They’ve woken up. There is a level of political activism in this country that we haven’t seen since the American Revolution, and Barack Obama has been the catalyst that has sparked a restructuring of the American political and social consciousness.

Think of the crap we’ve slowly learned to tolerate over the past 50 years as liberalism sought to re-structure the America that was the symbol of freedom and liberty to all the people of the world. Immigration laws were ignored on the basis of compassion. Welfare policies encouraged irresponsibility, the fracturing of families, and a cycle of generations of dependency. Debt was regarded as a tonic to lubricate the economy. Our children left school having been taught that they are exceptional and special, while great numbers of them cannot perform basic functions of mathematics and literacy. Legislators decided that people could not be trusted to defend their own homes, and stripped citizens of their rights to own firearms. Productive members of society have been penalized with a heavy burden of taxes in order to support legions of do-nothings who loll around, reveling in their addictions, obesity, indolence, ignorance and “disabilities.” Criminals have been arrested and re-arrested, coddled and set free to pillage the citizenry yet again. Lawyers routinely extort fortunes from doctors, contractors and business people with dubious torts.

We slowly learned to tolerate these outrages, shaking our heads in disbelief, and we went on with our lives.

But Barack Obama has ripped the lid off a seething cauldron of dissatisfaction and unrest.

A former Communist is given a paid government position in the White House as an advisor to the president. Auto companies are taken over by the government, and the auto workers’ union – whose contracts are completely insupportable in any economic sense – is rewarded with a stake in the company. Government bails out Wall Street investment bankers and insurance companies, who pay their executives outrageous bonuses as thanks for the public support. Terrorists are read their Miranda rights and given free lawyers. And, despite overwhelming public disapproval, Barack Obama has pushed forward with a health care plan that would re-structure one-sixth of the American economy.

Literally millions of Americans have had enough. They’re organizing, they’re studying the Constitution and the Federalist Papers, they’re reading history and case law, they’re showing up at rallies and meetings, and a slew of conservative candidates are throwing their hats into the ring. Is there a revolution brewing? Yes, in the sense that there is a keen awareness that our priorities and sensibilities must be radically re-structured. Will it be a violent revolution? No. It will be done through the interpretation of the original document that has guided us for 220 years – the Constitution. Just as the pendulum swung to embrace political correctness and liberalism, there will be a backlash, a complete repudiation of a hundred years of nonsense. A hundred years from now, history will perceive the year 2010 as the time when America got back on the right track. And for that, we can thank Barack Hussein Obama.

Freedom Outlaw by Claire Wolfe

In American Sovereign on June 8, 2010 at 5:20 pm

So, what exactly is a Freedom Outlaw?

by: Claire Wolfe -please visit her blog here

“Freedom Outlaw.” The term came up here a few days ago. It’ll arise again and again on this blog.

If you’ve been hanging out in my vicinity for a few years, you probably know what I mean by it. If not, you might be puzzled or even offended by the notion that people who believe in freedom are (or should be) criminals. Thought I’d stop this morning and define some terms.

So this is mostly for people who haven’t heard it all before.

A Freedom Outlaw is (loosely) somebody who cares so much about freedom that he or she will go after it regardless of any laws or regulations blocking the way. Will go after it personally. Not petition for it. Not write letters for it. Not vote for it. But GO for it.

Also, a Freedom Outlaw has panache. Think Robin Hood. Think V. Think (not to be self-promotional here, but …) of the swashbuckling fellow on the cover of this book.

America is clearly and illegally divided into a class system.

In American Sovereign on June 8, 2010 at 4:34 pm

TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 13 > § 241. Conspiracy against rights a felony
When we the people ever learn enough and have the courage to take our freedom back and return to a government for the people by the people, courts of justice and lawful unbiased judges. Jerry
TREASON

THE INTERNATIONAL CONSPIRACY OF THE LAWYERS

TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES FROM WITHIN

Since the BIGGEST CRIMES in the world are committed IN the courtrooms
by lawyers and lawyer-judges AGAINST the people in unconstitutional
courts, we, the people, must protect ourselves where we need the most
protection, in the courtrooms, FROM the lawyers and lawyer-judges.

The courts are always ruling AGAINST the people, as the lawyers and
their bar associations, which are affiliated with each other
INTERNATIONALLY, have joined in an INTERNATIONAL CONSPIRACY AGAINST
THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES to DESTROY THE UNITED STATES FROM
WITHIN (TREASON). They already have taken over the courts and the
government, and ALL political parties, where they all take orders from
ONE FRONT OFFICE, the offices of the internationally affiliated bar
associations, making a ONE PARTY “SYSTEM,” the BAR ASSOCIATION PARTY.

This necessitated an URGENT need to form a 2nd political party, the
ANTI-LAWYER PARTY, where all lawyers and those who attended law school
are barred from this 2nd party (ALP).

All the states have unconstitutional aristocratic courts, as their
constitutions and/or unconstitutional “lawyer systems” require judges
to be lawyers, creating a RULING CLASS, which is FORBIDDEN by Art. IV,
Sec. 4, of the U.S. Constitution, “The United States shall guarantee
to every state in this union a REPUBLICAN FORM of government,” any
other form of government is FORBIDDEN. No public office or branch of
government can be limited to a RULING CLASS of any kind, or the states
become ARISTOCRACIES and NOT republics. Also, the lawyers have made
ONLY themselves 1 st class citizens, where all public offices and all
three branches of government are open to lawyers only. All other
people are limited to only 2 branches of government and to only
certain offices in those 2 branches of government, BECAUSE ALL PEOPLE
WHO ARE NON-LAWYERS HAVE BEEN UNCONSTITUTIONALLY DEGRADED, BY THE
LAWYERS, TO THE STATUS OF 2ND CLASS CITIZENS.

When the courts belong to the people, as the U. S. Constitution
REQUIRES (Art. IV, Sec. 4), we, the people, will NEVER EVER rule
against ourselves.

In these unconstitutional courts (hoodlum centers), “men” in black
dresses, wearing unconstitutional ROBES OF NOBILITY (Art. 1, Secs. 9
and 16), with a lot of hanky-panky and hocus-pocus, dispense a
perverted IDIOTology where the people are terrorized by terrorists
(lawyers and lawyer-judges) in the courts.

The judicial branch of government does NOT have the constitutional
power to issue court orders or any other kind of orders.

ONLY presidents and governors have the constitutional power to grant
PARDONS, but lawyers and lawyer-judges are unconstitutionally granting
PARDONS with “immunity from prosecution. “

Citizens are not permitted to act like people in the courts. The
citizen (2nd class) is told that he does not know how to fill outfancy
lawyer forms; that he is not trained in the law: that he does not know
court rules and procedures: etc. This is unconstitutional (1 st
Amend.), as it denies the citizen access to the courts, which are
supposed to belong to the people. Instead, all “our” courts are owned
by lawyers (traitors) internationally.

In court, lawyers cue the lawyer-judges with certain words and
phrases, directing and signaling the type of fix to take place. The
most extreme inhuman punishment is inflicted on a victim when a lawyer
” signals” the lawyer-judge that the victim has extreme disrespect for
the legal profession and the judiciary, or that the victim will not
”cooperate.’ ‘ All cases are fixed with these and other cues and
signals, which have nothing to do with the law or the U. S.
Constitution.

Under this unconstitutional “lawyer system,” only HEARSAY SUBSTITUTES
(lawyers), NOT under oath, have access to the courts, even though ONLY
sworn testimony and evidence can be presented in court., anything else
is a Bill of Attainder, NOT permitted under the U. S. Constitution
(Art. 1, Secs. 9 & 10).

The U. S. Constitution does NOT give anyone the right to a lawyer, or
the right to counsel, or the right to any other HEARSAY SUBSTITUTE.
The 6th Amendment is very SPECIFIC, that the accused ONLY has the
right to the ASSISTANCE of counsel and this ASSISTANCE of counsel can
be anyone the accused chooses WITHOUT limitation. NEITHER THE %,,)RD
LAWYER NOR THE ATTORNEY APPEAR ANYWHERE IN THE U. S. CONSTITUTION.

Lawyers and lawyer-judges created unconstitutional “lawyer system”
pre-trial *’Motions” and “Hearings” to have eternal EXTORTIONISTIC
litigation, which is BARRATRY and is also in violation of the U.S.
Constitution, as this places defendants in DOUBLE JEOPARDY a hundred
times over. Defendants only have a right to A TRIAL, NOT TRIALS. The
multitude of pre-trials are actually pre-trials for the pre-trials and
pre-trials for the pre-pre-trials, benefiting the lawyers only. These
pre-trials and post-trials too, started with the TAKE-OVER of the
courts by the INTERNATIONALLY affiliated bar associations, in a
CONSPIRACY; before this, defendants only had a trial, NOT TRIALS.

When a criminal is freed on a “TECHNICALITY, “ he is freed because of a
FIX and a PAY-OFF, as a defendant can only be freed if found innocent
BY A JURY, NOT BY ANY—TECHNICALITY.

Whenever a lawyer is involved in a case directly or indirectly, as a
litigant or assisting in counsel, ALL lawyer-judges have to disqualify
themselves, as there cannot be a constitutional trial and there also
would be a violation of the conflict of interest laws, along with the
violation of separation of powers and checks and balances, because
”Officers of the Court” are on both sides of the BENCH.

These same LAWYER-judges are awarding or approving LAWYER FEES,
directly and indirectly, amounting to BILLIONS OF DOLLARS ANNUALLY,
all in violation of the conflict of interest laws.

Since crime and treason is against the law, and the lawyer profession
is a crooked profession, a LEGAL BOUNTY should be placed on ALL
LAWYERS (betrayers) and all those who are aiding and abetting these
traitors. the lawyers.

As long as there are lawyers. there will never ever be any law,
constitution, or justice, There will only be MOB RULE, RULE BY A MOB
OF LAWYERS (TRAITORS).

CASE “LAW” is unconstitutional, as CASE “LAW” IS ENACTED BY THE
JUDICIAL BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT. ONLY THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH OF
GOVERNMENT HAS THE CONSTITUTIONAL POWER TO ENACT LAWS.

When a lawyer-judge instructs, directs, or gives orders to a jury, the
lawyer-judge is TAMPERING WITH THE JURY. He also tampers with
testimony, when he orders the answers to be either “yes” or “no”. The
lawyer-judge also tampers, fixes. and rigs the trial when he orders
anything stricken from the record, or when he “rules” certain evidence
and the truth to be inadmissible. This makes the trial and transcripts
FIXED and RIGGED, because the jury does not hear the REAL TRUTH and
ALL THE FACTS. Juries are made into puppets by the lawyers and
lawyer-judges.

All lawyers are automatically in the judicial branch Of government, as
they have the unconstitutional TITLE OF NOBILITY (Art. 1, Secs. 9 and
10). “Officer of the Court,” Citizens have to be elected or hired to
be in any branch. but non-lawyer citizens are limited to only 2 of the
3 branches of government. Lawyers, as 1 st class citizens. can be
hired or elected to any of the 3 branches of government. All lawyers,
being “Officers of the Court” in the Judicial Branch, are
unconstitutionally in 2 branches of government AT THE SAME TIME
whenever they are hired or elected to either the executive or the
legislative branches: this is in violation of the separation of powers
checks and balances. and the conflict of interest laws.

ALL lawyers are UNDER ORDERS to HELP ONLY CROOKS and’ to AC. VICTIMIZE
VICTIMS. That is why ONLY CROOKS SHOULD LIKE LAWYERS. who are their
counterparts.

The 6th Amendment states, “the accused shall enjoy the right to a
SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL.” Yet, lawyer- judges have lawyers (HEARSAY
SUBSTITUTES) approach the bench and talk in whispers, meet in the
judge’s chambers, talk in SECRET, send the jury OUT of the courtroom,
etc. Also lawyer-judges order the litigants, witnesses, lawyers, news
media, etal.from discussing the trial, making the trial an
unconstitutional SECRET TRIAL, NOT A PUBLIC TRIAL.

No one can be sentenced to prison unless convicted of a crime BY A
JURY (THE PEOPLE). ONLY the people (THE JURY) have the POWER to decide
the guilt or innocence of the accused as Art. III, Sec. 2, Cl. 3, of
the U.S. Constitution states, “THE TRIAL OF ALL CRIMES, except in
cases of impeachment, SHALL BE BY JURY.” Since this is a
CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT, a trial by jury cannot be “waived,” as
ONLY A JURY, under the U.S. Constitution, HAS THE POWER TO DECIDE THE
GUILT OR INNOCENCE OF THE ACCUSED.,

The 6th Amendment REAFFIRMS the CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT OF A TRIAL
BY JURY ONLY, “In ALL criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy
the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial JURY of the
state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed.”

In a REPUBLIC, NOTHING is above the ‘PEOPLE and the PEOPLE make the
decisions. NOT A RULING CLASS. That is why a jury’s verdict cannot be
reversed by any government official, such as a lawyer-judge or anyone
else. If a lawyer-judge or lawyer-judges can reverse a jury’s verdict,
then, that would place them above the people, making “our” government
an ARISTOCRACY and NOT a REPUBLIC. A jury (the PEOPLE) can even veto
stupid and unjust legislation, by finding victims of stupid and unjust
laws, passed by the lawyers in the legislatures, innocent, even though
they pleaded guilty. THE PEOPLE IN A REPUBLIC ARE SOVEREIGN.

In CONTEMPT OF COURT, there is.

NO Due Process of. Law
NO Arrest
NO Rights Read
NO Bail
NO Habeas Corpus
NO Prosecutor
NO Jury AND
NO Trial – LYNCHING

Yet, persons held in CONTEMPT OF COURT, are LYNCHED by a DESPOT. a
lawyer-judge, who does:

the Accusing the Prosecuting the Convicting and the Sentencing, ALL
WITHOUT A TRIAL – LYNCHING

ALL THIS IS A BILL OF ATTAINDER (Art. 1. Secs. 9 and 10)

Lawyer-judges have been releasing from prison, criminals who have
raped and murdered little children because their “rights- were not
read to them. But, contempt of court LYNCH VICTIMS, never having had
their “rights” read to them, must remain in prison.

The lawyer-judges ORDER law enforcement officers, who also are sworn
to support the U. S. Constitution, to imprison contempt of court LYNCH
VICTIMS and to be part of a LYNCH MOB. Law enforcement officers
should REFUSE to obey these DESPOTIC ILLEGAL ORDERS to imprison
contempt of court LYNCH VICTIMS and refuse to be a part of a LYNCH
MOB. No one has to obey an illegal order.

Under the UNCONSTITUTIONAL DESPOTIC “LAWYER SYSTEM” we now have, a
COURT ORDER could be issued declaring that anyone who violates a law.
of any kind. would be in violation of a COURT ORDER and BE HELD IN
CONTEMPT OF COURT (LYNCHED).

When a victim, in a courtroom, tries to bring out the truth or to
exercise a constitutional right. the lawyer-judge will call it an
”OUTBURST” and LYNCH THE VICTIM with contempt of court, then practice
medicine without a license by ordering the victim to undergo
psychiatric examinations.

The U. S. Constitution being the supreme fundamental law, is not and
CANNOT be ambiguous as to be interpreted, or it would be a worthless
piece of paper and we would have millions of interpretations
(unconstitutional amendments). That is why all judges and public
officials are SWORN TO SUPPORT the U.S. Constitution, NOT to interpret
it. Imagine, hypothetically, how stupid it would be if any
constitution stated, “that the judicial branch of government has the
power to interpret this constitution. “

An OUTRAGEOUS amount of TAX MONEY is directly and indirectly STOLEN BY
THE LAWYERS. Money that is budgeted to County Boards, School Boards
and other local and federal agencies eventually finds its way into the
pockets of lawyers, as ALL of these agencies are “TRICKED” and
”FORCED” into ETERNAL EXTORTIONISTIC LITIGATION.

Organized crime never ever existed, until the bar associations took
over the courts and the government. Now crime is organized
internationally, just as the bar associations are organized, where
some of their international affiliations include: International
Judicial Association, International Trial Lawyers Association, World
Peace Through Law Center, World Assembly of Judges, etal[. This means
that the bar associations are not only the INTERNATIONAL CRIME
SYNDICATE, but also the INTERNATIONAL WORLD GOVERNMENT and
INTERNATIONAL COMMUNIST PARTY. Under INTERNATIONAL ORDERS, ALL
LAWYERS, whether they left law school yesterday or 50 years ago, are
EXACTLY THE SAME. All lawyers have to file the same motions and follow
the same procedures in using the same unconstitutional “lawyer’
system” of hanky-panky and hocus-pocus, and to DESTROY THE UNITED’
STATES FROM WITHIN by always ruling AGAINST THE PEOPLE. ALL LAWYERS
AND LAWYER-JUDGES ARE GUILTY OF TREASON.

District Attorneys and State’s Attorneys have TAKEN OVER the grand
juries FROM the people, where the people are DENIED ACCESS to the
grand juries when they attempt to present evidence of crime’s
committed in the courtrooms by the lawyers and lawyer-judges. TRY
TAKING THESE DOCUMENTED ACTS OF TREASON AND OTHER CRIMES, COMMITTED BY
THE LAWYERS AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, TO THE GRAND
JURIES! An INDICTMENT would call for the ARREST OF ALL LAWYERS, AND
LAWYER-JUDGES, INCLUDING THE LAWYER- JUDGES OF THE U.S. SUPREME COURT,
TO BE TRIED FOR TREASON AND OTHER CRIMES.

In elections, VOTE AGAINST ALL LAWYERS. Never ever vote for a lawyer.
Vote FOR non-lawyers ONLY. If only lawyers are running for election to
the same off ice, do NOT vote for any of them, as they are ALL ALIKE.
ALL lawyers are programmed to be TRAITORS AND INHUMAN CLONES.

The lawyers, THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL RULING CLASS, have taken over our
government and our live COMPLETELY, so that now the lawyers are our
MASTERS and we” the people, are their SLAVES. This is why the
ANTI-LAWYER PARTY FIGHTS LAWYERS ONLY, ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING ELSE, AS
THIS ONE FIGHT WINS ALL THE FIGHTS. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY OF SAVING
THE PEOPLE, THE U. S. CONSTITUTION AND THE UNITED STATES—THERE IS
NO OTHER WAY TO WIN!!

Don’t Tread on Me – the movie

Don’t Tread On Me: Unifying a Movement
A new film is unifying Americans everywhere, the message is simple, “Don’t Tread On Me!”
by: Angie Ress – Staff Writer – RestoreTheRepublic.com

CHICAGO, Il – In the years leading up to the Revolutionary War, thirteen separate and sovereign colonies joined forces to overthrow the oppressive taxation, monetary policy and police state of the distant and detached British kingdom.

“Join or Die” was the famous slogan seen in Benjamin Franklin’s Pennsylvania Gazette in 1754. The image featured a snake cut into eight sections to represent the English colonies. Originally intended to unite the colonies during the French Indian War, the image was later adapted to unite the colonies against the British.  Once unified against a common enemy, another familiar image appeared, the image of a coiled snake ready to strike and the words “Don’t Tread on Me”.

In the same spirit, and for the same reasons as the founders of old, 192 cities in 42 states are erecting the “Don’t Tread on Me” banner and gearing up for the next revolution, not by firing bullets but by hosting screenings of the latest film from producers Gary Franchi and William Lewis, “Don’t Tread On Me: Rise of the Republic“.
Almost every organization that can be considered a member of the Freedom Movement has registered to host one of the 97 screenings for the general public on or around this June 26th.
“We’re unified,” says writer/producer Franchi, “not since the theatrical release of ‘America: Freedom to Fascism‘ have I seen such cohesion and force to spread a common message.”
Franchi is referencing the film created by late Hollywood producer Aaron Russo that Congressman Ron Paul credits with spurring massive grassroots support for his 2008 Presidential run. Franchi worked alongside Russo before Russo lost his battle with cancer in 2007. Russo managed Bette Midler and produced several films, including the classic “Trading Places” starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd.

The list of Freedom Movement organizations unifying around the new film includes the Tea Parties, Campaign for Liberty, Restore the Republic, the Libertarian Party, the Constitution Party, We Are Change, Infowarriors, Concerned Citizens of America, Freedoms Phoenix, the John Birch Society, Oath Keepers, the NRA, 9/11, 9/12, Young Americans for Liberty, Fully Informed Jury Association, main steam political campaigns, and more.

“While this movement may be made up of different organizations with differing agendas and leaders it is clearly the message of this film that is unifying us all” states Franchi.
When asked about the message of “Don’t Tread On Me: Rise of the Republic,” writer/director Lewis took a break from production on the teams next project, “Enemy of the State: Camp FEMA 2” to explain, “Our vision was simple.  Show the American People the boundaries the Federal Government cannot cross, using the Constitution of the United States as our guide. We wanted to provide a path to remind the Sovereign States and the People of their power.  We hand selected our interviews to provide the best, brightest and most concise education on the issues that plague us today, with solutions that can be applied by State Legislators and the People themselves.”
All one needs to do is take a look at the miserable defeats going on in political races across the country to see the people have had enough and are stepping up to take charge.  They are ridding themselves of the useless representation they have had in the past.  They are definitely breathing in the Spirit of ’76 by drawing their line in the sand and declaring, “Don’t Tread On Me!”

Videotape Police Abuse,

Go to Jail?

The technology is becoming more widely available for instant remote

transfer of live video. You can not only record an encounter but send the footage in real time outside the jurisdiction of whatever local law enforcement might be involved. This makes it much more difficult for police to seize the footage or ‘accidentally’ destroy the device. As this becomes more common, I think bad cops will have an increasingly hard time, especially as the devices become smaller and they have no idea who might be recording or from what angles. Right now, they can perform for cameras they know are there (such as squad car cameras) to set up ‘justification’ for violence. Now, it may seem hypocritical of me to support this technology and be very set against stop light cameras and other routine government surveillance. There is no hypocrisy here: it is perfectly moral for citizens to do things which are immoral when done by the government. The reverse is not true.

If I disclose information to you, your power with respect to me

increases. One way to address this power imbalance is for you to similarly disclose information to me. We both have less privacy, but the balance of power is maintained. But this mechanism fails utterly if you and I have different power levels to begin with. An example will make this clearer. You’re stopped by a police officer, who demands to see identification. Divulging your identity will give the officer enormous power over you: He or she can search police databases using the information on your ID; he or she can create a police record attached to your name; he or she can put you on this or that secret terrorist watch list. Asking to see the officer’s ID in return gives you no comparable power over him or her. The power imbalance is too great, and mutual disclosure does not make it OK.

The question has never really been about ‘privacy’ but balance of power.

Additionally, I believe it is a fundamental Right of a citizen to record— by whatever available means— any transaction with the government, Our Founders would never have denied a citizen the right to have a fair witness at such a transaction and a camera is no different— just a witness savant.

Government officials never have a ‘right of privacy’ in their official

capacities. Period. Officials do not have ‘rights’ when acting officially, only delegated powers subject to citizen oversight. Government is a public trust and must be visible at all times. Wiretapping and surveillance laws are not applicable to a situation of a citizen recording police or other government activities for self- protection. It is not a matter of how the law reads, it is a fundamental injustice to apply such a law to a citizen and violates the principle of equity at law because citizens and government officials are not on equal footing to begin with. Any law which purports to limit a citizen’s rights in this matter violates the structure of our legal system at its most basic level and is void.

Sincerely,

Eric Vought
