Events that changed our Republic
Part two by Tim Siewert
26 June, 1934-
The National Firearms Act of 1934 is passed. This Unconstitutional Act categorizes certain firearms into a regulated status; to be specific, fully automatic weapons, rifles and shotguns with barrels shorter than a specified length of 16”. This was sold as an attempt to curb the “gangland” violence that transpired during the era of prohibition. This was another misdirected attempt at regulating human behavior by placing restrictions on inanimate objects; as if the debacle of prohibition was not proof enough of how flawed that thinking is. Aside from the constitutionality of the law, I see it as the first step of the overall plan to disarm the general population of this country for the purposes of subjugation.
I would like to point out that if the general population is denied access to military grade weapons then ipso facto the militia is denied access to military grade weapons. The battles at Lexington and Concord on 19 April 1775 were specifically about the British troops denying the militia access to military grade weapons, i.e. cannon. Those battles did not happen because the British regulars wanted muzzle loading muskets. There were significant armories with cannon, powder, and shot stored at both locations for the militias.
The liberal politicians and media have often posed the question, “What does a person need with a fully automatic weapon?” To answer: "it is not necessarily a question of need;" but, considering that fully automatic weapons and heavier crew-served weapons are military grade weapons and consequently weapons that would be necessary to arm the militia of today, then in response to the question of need, the militia needs these weapons. And, then it follows that since the militia guarantees the liberty of the people against tyranny, and that it is liberty that guarantees the basic needs of the people, then it follows that the people do need fully automatic and crew-served weapons.
14 August, 1935-
Congress passes the Social Security Act. While some may argue that this was a good thing, it does not negate the fact that Social Security has become the greatest Ponzi scheme ever devised. It has also become the most abused of government programs. Many people today receive money from Social Security that have never contributed and will never contribute to the program. I have seen many commercials on T.V. claiming that people have a “right” to money from SS just because they are incapable of being employed. Now I ask, “How is it someone’s right to money that they have not earned?” Also, the Federal government has come to view the SS trust fund as their own private “slush” fund for them to raid whenever they choose. They do this because in 1986 Congress made SS part of the Federal budget. It was originally intended to be separate so that it would remain solvent.
26 June, 1945-
The United States enters the newly formed United Nations. This country has not fought a constitutionally declared war since this date. Almost every conflict that we have been involved in has been at the behest of the UN. This country’s government has wasted millions of lives and trillions of dollars because of the UN. I think that it is the epitome of hypocrisy that the UN’s charter states that this world organization’s #1 goal is to promote peace, harmony, and protect people’s rights around the globe yet it has sanctioned all of this death and destruction. And I might add more death, destruction, and misery than the Nazis were responsible for; not to mention the 30 million+ Russian people that Stalin’s regime killed in the 1950s; yet the UN did nothing.
22 October, 1968-
The Gun Control Act of ’68 is signed into law by LBJ. This unconstitutional Act along with the equally unlawful National Firearms Act of 1934 have served to turn the God-given right guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment into a privilege. Many people in our country today have been duped into believing that the document known as the Bill of Rights are laws. This is a lie. You see, many of the men who were involved in the formation of this Republic were initially skeptical about the Constitution. Remember that the Philadelphia convention of 1787 was not convened to write the Constitution. It was convened to amend the Articles of Confederation. When it was clear that was not going to be the agenda, many of the delegates to the convention left. Even after the convention was adjourned and the Constitution had been drafted, many people objected [It took over four years for the Constitution to be ratified; and then several of the states only did so because the Bill of Rights had been added] because the people of the newly formed Republic had been former subjects of the British crown and as such were fully cognizant of their rights (which had been codified by the English Bill of Rights of 1689); rights understood to be God given rights. Therefore, these men insisted that these same, God-given rights be reaffirmed in the Constitution to hopefully insure that the government of the newly formed Republic not usurp these rights. These men knew full well that if it were not in writing in the Constitution that lawyers would find a way to subjugate our rights as they have anyway.
I think that it is no coincidence that the GCA of ’68 is almost a “carbon copy” of the Nazi Gun Control Act of 1938. A case in point, I do not believe in coincidence; particularly when it comes to the shenanigans of people in government. Virtually all of the draconian gun laws that have been enacted in our Republic get their justification from and have been enacted since the GCA of ’68 was forced on us. All of these illegal laws have been enacted under the ruse of “crime control”. The lie of “crime control” is illogical in that it is based on the presumption that it is possible to control human behavior by placing limits on inanimate objects. Also, gun control has been sold to the public predicated on the totally illogical premise that criminals may be of a mind to follow the law.
There has been an alternate, secret agenda afoot in our Republic for more than 100 years with its ultimate goal being the total subjugation of the country and its people for the purpose of stealing this country's wealth. Disarming the people is the first step necessary to accomplish this goal. Once again greed is the root cause of the problem.
1 July and 15 August, 1971-
On 1 July Richard M. Nixon dissolved the cabinet level Department of the U. S. Post Office and created the government run company known as The U.S. Postal Service. The Dept. of the Post Office had been separate since George Washington’s administration. By doing this, Nixon violated Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. It also paved the way for Bill Clinton to privatize the Post Office further violating the Constitution. Article 1, Section 8 specifically states that Congress is responsible for maintaining Post Offices and Post Roads. The founders knew that reliable communication was necessary for the Republic to thrive.
15 August, 1971-
Nixon, at the behest of the Federal Reserve, took our Republic off the gold standard. This one act, more than any other by any other man, has destroyed the dollar’s value. Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution gives Congress the sole authority to set the value of money. The Federal Reserve, a private entity has control over the printing of and setting the value of the dollar, a direct violation of Article 1 Section 8. Nixon had no authority to do this. Prior to this, there could be only so many dollars in existence because the U.S. Treasury only had so much gold in reserve and the price was fixed at $35.00 per ounce. By doing this, the Federal Reserve instantaneously got a blank check. They could magically print as many dollars as they wanted, and they could set the value of these dollars however they wanted. Consequently, the amount of dollars in existence has gone from a few billion to trillions and trillions effectively making each dollar virtually worthless because of the law of supply and demand.
Many people are unaware of what constitutes the “national debt”. Prior to 15 August, ’71 the national debt had been relatively constant with surges during wars and then being paid down during periods of peace. The reason for its continual rise since ’71 is the ever increasing supply of dollars since that date. You see, the “national debt” is interest that the Fed. has been charging the people of this country since 1913. Interest charged for the service of printing our money. Dollars are promissory notes. Every dollar in circulation is actually a “loan” from the Federal Reserve to the U.S. government. This has been this way since 1913.
26 October, 2001-
The “USA PATRIOT Act” officially known as “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001” is passed & signed into law by G. W. Bush. If you want to talk about a bunch of lawyerese goobledy-gook thrown together to suit their purposes, the name of this act and the corresponding acronym is a great example. Clearly the ubiquitous “they” had in mind what they wanted to call their draconian baby to limit our freedoms; “they” just had to find the right words. “They” also needed an excuse to get it passed because this fascist crap had long since been written and was waiting in the archives for the appropriate time to be introduced; hence the events of 11 September 2001.
This brings me to another very important point concerning Congressional proceedings. Congress has never had a “quorum” rule. A quorum rule specifically limits the number of members of an assembly necessary to convene said assembly. This is usually stipulated as a % of the whole number and if said % is not present then the assembly can not be convened to conduct any business. I believe that Congress not having a quorum rule has been by design. As I wrote concerning the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in part 1, Congress had already adjorned two weeks prior to 23 December, 1913 but it was reconvened by only a handful of men and the Federal Reserve Act was passed.
Over the years, Congress has devised its own set of rules to suit their devious purposes like not having a quorum rule. Another key aspect of parliamentary proceedings that Congress deviates from is how they handle questions that have already been voted on or tabled. Many times what has happened has been that issues that have already been voted down by majority have been reintroduced time and time again until the authors of these pieces of socio-fascist crap get what they want. As in the case of the Federal Reserve Act, which was voted on during the regular session and voted down, it was reintroduced and passed. The PATRIOT Act was originally drafted in the ‘90s. What should have happened in 1913, after the Federal Reserve Act was passed but didn’t, was the perpetrators of this act should have been impeached when Congress reconvened at the very least, if not just plain arrested for treason, tried and hung. This is why I maintain that all are guilty because no one ever does anything after the fact, regardless of what the outcome may be, as has been the case with the PATRIOT Act. The nonsensical attitude that “they” portray to the general public is, “Oh well, what is done is done, we should just move on”. Or, it is as if these people that perpetrate these treasonous acts are somehow above the law or above reproach just because they occupy a part-time job. This country has been run by spineless, mealy-mouthed, back-stabbing, two-faced pieces of socio-fascist crap for way too long.
17 October, 2006 and 9 October 2009-
These are the dates that G. W. Bush and Barry Soetoro a.k.a. Barack Obama signed the Military Commissions Act, respectively. This Act, along with the PATRIOT Act, has effectively illegally nullified the protections of individual liberty guaranteed by the U. S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. This Act basically attempts to nullify the 4th & 5th Articles of the Bill of Rights and the right of Habeas Corpus all in the name of combating the fabricated specter of terrorism.
For those who do not understand the right of Habeas Corpus, it is a God-given right originally codified in the English Bill of Rights recognizing that a person accused of a crime must be brought before a judge and/or court before being incarcerated; and in conjunction with this right, the accused has the right to confront his/her accusers in the court. This was originally set forth to prevent agents of the king unlawfully stealing people without due process; and the courts are supposed to be the guardians of this right. These courts were to be independent from (not answerable to) the king. This was the original set of checks and balances for the people. You see, by 1689 the English people, who were the most independent and progressively governed people of Europe at that time, had already had their fill of kings run-amuck. That is kings unduly abusing their authority. Granted, the right of the accused to confront his/her accusers, and all court proceedings for that matter, is predicated on the presumption that people will tell the truth in court. Clearly this does not occur anymore. The main reason for this, as I see it, is the fact that judgeships have been politicized. Consequently, the people that occupy these posts are more concerned with their “careers” than with having any sense of honor.
21 & 23 March, 2010-
The people of our republic are saddled with “Obamacare”. Never before have the people of this republic, or to my knowledge any other country for that matter, been forced literally at gun-point, to purchase a “product” marketed by private corporations. This whole issue and the fabricated controversy surrounding it is akin to forcing a vegetarian to buy beef so his beef-eating neighbor can buy cheaper beef at the grocery store. This is how I see it aside from the constitutionality of the law.
Notice that I did not assign the title of “President” to any man that has occupied that office in this article except for Andrew Jackson. This was no accident. I believe that every election today is a sham. Furthermore, I believe that every national election for more than 100 years has been rigged. While I am not sure of the particulars concerning the methods of orchestration, this does not change my opinion. Clearly, the last few national “elections” have been manipulated. My point is that the election process, the government, and our Republic have been hijacked by individuals and forces operating behind the scenes in the shadows for a long time. These individuals and forces hardly ever get as much as an “honorable mention” by the presstitute media. Why is that?
So there you have it. This country has gone from a limited Confederation of independent states to a socio-fascist police state with a tremendously bloated unchecked, unconstitutional federal government whose agents believe that it is their “destiny” to run the entire planet however “they” see fit. And all of this has happened in little more than a century and a half.
16 December, 1773-
This is the date of the “Boston Tea Party”. I have added this date to illustrate a point. For those few who are unfamiliar with this event, a group of patriots, disguised as native braves, boarded a ship owned by the East India Tea company and threw the whole shipment of tea on board into the water. This was done in protest against the tea tax that had been enacted earlier in April of that same year. Many people are unaware of the actual monetary amount of tax that was being levied. The actual amount was 1 penny per bail of tea. Even though that seems like a paltry sum, the resentment was not really so much about the amount but more about the fact that the tax was only levied here in the colonies. People “back home” in England did not have to pay the tax. That was part of the “taxation without representation” resentment. The inhabitants of the colonies were being taxed as if they were subjects of the British crown yet they had no representation in Parliament to object to these taxes. According to British law, all subjects of the crown had a right to representation in Parliament and by law had a right to vote on taxes. And now it is estimated that the average U.S. wage earner pays almost half of their entire earnings in taxes in one form or another. My question is, “What do we really get for all that money?”
I would like to point out one other thing as “food for thought”. If my presumption of elections being manipulated is correct, then these elections are not legal. Then if these elections have not been legal, then the people who have been installed in these offices as a result have held these offices illegally. Now even though all of these “elected” officials have sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution, since they held these offices illegally then these oaths have not been valid because this validity is predicated on them holding office legally. And finally since these unlawfully “elected” officials have held these offices illegally, then anything that they have done or approved or signed is not valid. And this is why I maintain that all of this is an illusion and in reality we as a people and a nation are under no obligation to follow any of this but because of threat of force we have had to. This same tactic, the threat of force as a result of noncompliance with their capricious whims, tyrants have used for millennia to subjugate people because of their greed.
