It Ain’t About Hot Dogs & Fireworks

Reflections on this Fourth of July

‘We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.’- – William Faulkner

We have two more days to the 233rd anniversary of our Independence Day. I know this is a day that is commonly associated with fireworks, good old fashioned hot dog and burger barbecues, heavenly kegs of beer, picnics, and baseball. I know many recognize this day as the anniversary of the American Colonies’ announcement declaring themselves as free and independent states, separated from allegiance to Great Britain. However this day is far more than just that. This day marked our nation’s definition of legitimate government and the proclamation of a political system under the sovereignty of the people. Thus, this is an occasion calling for more than hot dogs and fireworks. This should be an occasion to reflect upon where we are today, to take a hard look at the current state of our liberty and the rights we were fortunate to inherit, and to renew our pledge to revive and defend those precious principles of liberty and justice.

On this anniversary of our liberties let us put aside our blinding pride; let us remove our tainted patriotism spectacles; let us free ourselves from the irrational leech of fear; let us strip ourselves from the gown of denial worn for way too long, and reflect…

Pay special attention to our current national security apparatus, and remember the last time you found yourself within its control: whether when you encountered it while being stripped and searched at the airport, or paused in the middle of a sentence during a phone call due to the ‘others’’ present danger, or hesitated to sign a petition due to fear of inclusion on one of ‘their’ lists. I know you remember such encounters; as do I. Next, read and truly register a few words of wisdom by the fathers of our nation’s liberties, such as this: ‘Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.’ Let us ask ourselves whether we deserve either. The answer should not matter in the least, since it seems that today we have neither.

Engage in a bit of nostalgia on this great day, and remember the long-gone days when those in our government were called ‘public servants.’ Then ask yourself when and how that morphed into such ostentatious forms as the now popular bureaucratic ‘Czar.’ Let us push our imagination and ponder what the founding fathers would have thought of the very idea of royal titles within the nation they created, and the coronation of those who were intended by them to be ‘servants’ of the people. Here is one from Franklin: ‘In free governments the rulers are the servants and the people their superiors and sovereigns.’

Take notice of our mighty military and even mightier paramilitary intelligence and police agencies today; this awe inspiring beast of our government industry sustained by equally awe inspiring sums taken from every one of our pockets. Next, let us savor the words and pay a deserved special tribute to the father of our nation, George Washington, who said ‘Over grown military establishments are under any form of government inauspicious to liberty, and are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty.’

Consider the fact that our great Constitution was not written and not meant to be circumstantial nor conditional. For those who sincerely believe in compromising those liberties granted to us by our Constitution under the illusion of gaining security: Try to present a persuasive argument to justify those liberties we lately have given up, those taken away from us in the name of a vague war without end. Let’s make sure it is solid enough to stand on its own and able to counter Jefferson’s “A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.”

Finally, recall the words of the Constitution Oath that all federal employees, all federal judges, all military personnel, all new citizens are required to take, step back, and pay special attention to these lines: ‘support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies- foreign and domestic.’ Now ask yourself who is meant by ‘domestic’ enemies.

Here comes our Fourth of July. Surely what is left of our Bill of Rights is worth celebrating, and just as surely what has been taken away is worth fighting for. So let us enjoy that cold beer, savor that hot dog, and while doing that let us reflect and renew our pledge to fight for those irreplaceable American liberties that have been taken from us; the fight against our ‘real’ foes. Are we prepared to make the same pledge those founding fathers made 233 years ago?

“It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.”- – Thomas Paine

    Great stuff, Sibel. Love the Paine quote. Hazardous duty, on occassion, but duty nonetheless. Happy Fourth to you as well.

    It is a great essay Sibel
    Thank you for writing it

    What makes is so powerful and real is that you actually perfectly succeed in saying what the meaning of 4th of July is
    I was very moved and inspired reading it
    It is a great gift you have given us
    Love and kisses, Palo

    for me your greatest line in it is:
    This day marked our nation’s definition of legitimate government and the proclamation of a political system under the sovereignty of the people

    PS I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday week-end

  3. The US Constitution was going to be rejected by the State legislatures until the Bill of Rights was added by James Madison. Thomas Jefferson was sent to France to keep him out of the Constitutional Convention. Patrick Henry, when he was notified of the Constitutional Convention stated quote "I smells a rat".

    The hypocrisy of the nation shined as bright as that torch held by that pregnant woman people know as a the Statue of Liberty. The Constitution labled the Indians as Savages and held that slaves counted as 3/4 of a person for reprensentation.

    All this against a backdrop of the Declaration of Independence which stated "All men are created equal and are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

    Convince the slaves and Native Americans that this nation was not a total bullshit artist at the Constitutional Convention of Freemansons.

    The Bill of Rights was the only reason the Constitution was ratified.

    And the Constitution today, and more precisely the Bill of Rights, is a dead letter. Politicians and Judges can violate their oaths with impunity and they almost always do. I'm willing to bet you 90% of Congress hasn't even read the damn thing, much like they don't read the bills they vote on to become law.

    So forgive me if I'm raining on the Fourth of July parade, but its a bullshit holiday where people in this nation like to feel good about themselves, deluding their own selves into a false belief that they are somehow sovereign. Go into any court in this nation and tell the judge you're a sovereign citizen and he'll throw your ass in jail, and you can scream Constitution all you want from the bottom of the dungeon.

    This nation was founded on a lie from the very beginning, and the stench of the bullshit has reached to high heaven, and if there is a God, then surely he has regarded.

    Enjoy your picnics and beer, while the real Plutocrats who OWN this nation exploit your "free" asses with as much fervor as you all proclaim that you are somehow "sovereign". You're NOT sovereign and, short of a divine miracle, you never will be because a nation that falsely believes it is free is helplessly enslaved.

    The money issuers will see to it that your remain perpetually in debt and perpetually at war.

    They have already facisized this nation in such a way that would make Hitler and Mussolini blush with envy. And this nation is nothing more than the international police force for the Plutocracy that is its true form of government.

    So forgive me if I do not participate in the national self delusion that so many literal suckers take part in every "Fourth of July" in this nation.

    I proclaim a Holiday – Plutocrat Day – July 4th, 2009.

    And you're all still slaves until you outlaw the private issuance of fiat money.

    Slaves.

  4. One more thing….

    “If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”

    -Samuel Adams, (1722-1803)

    Allow me to update Samuel Adams quote to the present day:

    "If you love the Federal Reserve more than your Freedom, the tranquility of servitude to the Plutocrats who own it and to their collection enforcement apparatus known as the IRS, better than the animating contest of Freedom, depart from us in Peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the Plutocrat's hand that feeds you. May their chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

    Great Essay. I posted the first link below on another thread, but feel it's appropriate here.

    John Trudell. Democracy and the Civilizing Process

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRO8CjzFIh8

    A salient quote:

    Every Democracy has a small ruling class. Every Democracy has economic class systems. Every Democracy has sexism. Every Democracy has the religion of the state. Every Democracy had slaves. But everbody wants to pretend that's not part of it; when that's the heart and the core of it.

    But back to America. Majority Rule. If you were a white male who didn't own property, you had no taxable value so you didn't get to vote. If you were a female, you were mentally inferior so you didn't get to vote. If you were black, you were property so you didn't get to vote. And If you were native, you were the enemy so you didn't get to vote. So the majority rule of democracy was decided by the smallest minority of people here.

    SOME writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them; whereas they are not only different, but have different origins. Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices. The one encourages intercourse, the other creates distinctions. The first is a patron, the last a punisher.

    Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one: for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries BY A GOVERNMENT, which we might expect in a country WITHOUT GOVERNMENT, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer. Government, like dress, is the badge of lost innocence; the palaces of kings are built upon the ruins of the bowers of paradise. For were the impulses of conscience clear, uniform and irresistibly obeyed, man would need no other lawgiver; but that not being the case, he finds it necessary to surrender up a part of his property to furnish means for the protection of the rest; and this he is induced to do by the same prudence which in every other case advises him, out of two evils to choose the least. Wherefore, security being the true design and end of government, it unanswerably follows that whatever form thereof appears most likely to ensure it to us, with the least expense and greatest benefit, is preferable to all others.

    We need to be reminded of the fundamentals more often, and the clarity the Founders shared when they resisted oppressive authority.

    I believe both the right and left parts of the body politic today share an awareness of manipulation and duplicity by government and corporate elites that is unprecedented. It may not yet be focused or seen as a unifying perception, but it is a sub-text in almost everything written on the web.

    A "throw the bums out" moment approaches!

    Sibel, you are a great heroine of mine, and whilst I believe Robert Lane correctly assesses the ferment of idealism, hope and blind prejudice out of which our Founding Documents were born, and that he is a clear-eyed critic who should be honored for his truth-telling, you should be honored as well for your ceaseless appeal to Lincoln's better angels of our nature. Insofar as a great wrong has been done to you, the nation has committed a grave offense against itself and lost sight of its best interests. The greatest lie the Devil ever told is that citizens can't demand accountability from their government and its servitors and stenographers within the bulwarks of the Fourth Estate.

    You are our best angel. God Bless you and your family on this increasingly solemn day.

    This story was on the MSNBC site today, just in time for Independance Day.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/31716609/ns/technology_and_science-washington_post/

    A Quote:

    WASHINGTON – The Obama administration will proceed with a Bush-era plan to use National Security Agency assistance in screening government computer traffic on private-sector networks, with AT&T as the likely test site, according to three current and former government officials.

    President Obama said in May that government efforts to protect computer systems from attack would not involve "monitoring private-sector networks or Internet traffic," and Homeland Security Department officials say the new program will scrutinize only data going to or from government systems.

    My response to the story on Newsvine:

    This is the back door that the government is using to give the NSA license to conduct domestic surveillance on all of us, something that was expressly forbidden by Federal Law. I'm a 28-year telecom vet specializing in broadband carrier and new eqpt. test and turn-up. I worked in the same 611 Folsom St. Building in SF as Mark Klein for 10 years and have read his EFF affadavit from that perspective.

    Privacy of communications is dead. The NSA is monitoring everything everybody says and does online. No exception. That's the ONLY way Warrantless Wiretapping can work, BY DESIGN. The original justification was to block foreign access to US networks and is being trotted out now as well. If that were true, the secret NSA rooms wouldn't be in the Central Offices of US cities, but at the transoceanic cable terminal offices like the Transpac Cable head office in Los Osos, near Morro Bay. Taking 611 Folsom St. as an example. There were NO, I repeat, NO overseas circuits going out of that office when I worked there. I know this because ALL traffic leaving that office went through my equipment and onto my fiberoptic systems.

    Taking the Bush admin practices, we know it was primarily used to surveille political enemies, anti-war groups and members of the opposing party. What this IS is the final installment of John Poindexter's Total Information Awareness Program made manifest. What it means is no one has any secrets from the government now. all your voice and data communications, all your internet browsing habits, all your trade secrets and proprietary information are now in the hands of the government the moment you put them into the communications system. Considering the Air Force Cybercommand's classification of anti-war groups as "low-level terrorism", this should be setting off alarms to everyone. Under the Patriot Act and Military Commissions Act, such groups could be classified as "enemy combatants" and disappeared into the CIA's overseas Gulag of secret prisons for torture and death.

    When I started in Telecom in 1980, I had to sign papers stating that, under the Communications Act of 1934, I was liable for firing, civil AND criminal penalties if I revealed the contents of ANY communications I overheard in the performance of my duties. We have now gone from one extreme to the other.

    So how long before dissent becomes classified as law-breaking? I heartily urge everyone to go to the EFF site and READ Mark Klein's affadavit. Pay particular attention to pages 16 and 17 in the affadavit where it shows the engineering documentation showing the placement of the optical hybrids and the customer list of Other common Carriers who lease A.T.&T. service. Then you'll realize it doesn't matter who your service provider is. THAT'S why Telecomm Immunity was so vital to them. In the meantime, If you have a secret you want to STAY secret, don't talk about it on the phone, don't send it in an e-mail or on any other telecomm system.

    I'm gratified that some on the thread are referring others to my post.

    I truly believe the Founders meant well if not for themselves for everyone else.Don't do as I do, do as I say. They made an extreme plan and hoped for the best.

    At any rate if adhered to our Constitutional form of government was the best ever offered by man to the people of any nation. Of course we all know that our Democratic and Republican friends have subverted it through the Banksters from the get go.

    Daniel Webster once stated
    "I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe … Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. — From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy."

    Even today when I discuss the Bill of Rights many believe that the government granted us those rights rather than that we demanded them. They were a contract with the standing sovereigns that our government GUARANTEED that those enumerated rights would NEVER be subverted. Any 18th century Bozo could understand them as they said what they meant with no need for Lawyers, Scholars, or Interpreters. The very need by the government through the Judiciary Branch to interpret them was in fact the best and most efficient means to undermine them. Then in 1871 with the Act of 1871 our 41st Congress committed the highest order of treason when they incorporated the United States (see this link http://www.byronwine.com/files/1871.pdf) and altered our Constitution by changing the word "for" to "of" and capitalizing it which effectively neutered it and turned our country into a corporation named "THE UNITED STATES" (all caps) which made We the People subservient to this corporation. Here is the original along with explanation of what I mean: http://www.byronwine.com/files/1871.pdf. This was all as a result of the bankruptcy to the International Banksters long ago as James Traficant stated in his speech you can read at this link;http://www.apfn.net/Doc-100_bankruptcy.htm which is why I believe he was railroaded to prison without ability to call witnesses on his defense against his Fifth Amendment rights.

    The Bankster's were behind that as well as being behind the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank, the CFR, The U.N. and other sovereign busting entities commandeered by David Rockefeller and the likes.

    I noted some posters still think this is a "democracy." It never is nor never was intended to be a democracy but is rather a "republic." The founders loathed democracies.

    It is most difficult for me to be festive celebrating what I almost liken to a "Hallmark" holiday in so much as that which we celebrate is so severely undermined. I hold out hope that the few patriots like Sibel Edmonds, Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich and Andrew Napolitano to name a few will help wake Americans up and make them think. I leave you with what Ron Paul stated in his book titled Freedom Under Seige(1987) the following:

  17. avatar YuvbinDuped says:

    "The main problem we face today is that we lack enough champions of
    freedom. Leadership in the freedom movement has always come from intellectuals
    who have studied natural law and understood the benefits of the free market. When
    political oppression is accompanied by serious economic problems, the people will
    frequently, after years of suffering, overthrow the tyrants. But a wealthy nation,
    grown soft on the prosperity produced by a previously free generation, tends to vote
    for that individual who promises the biggest piece of the pie to his constituents.
    Ironically the prosperity that comes from a free society is the fuel that feeds the fire
    which brings on the demise of that society.
    Materially we are much better off today
    than people were in 1776, but our philosophy of freedom is in much worse shape."

    We can make a much more significant impact that way, and since the Corporate Media is finally suffering, when we do we can expose the treason of this entire scam and likely connect the dots between the media complex and the federal reserve complex itself.

    I believe they are one and the same thing. But I can't prove it, unless every person opens their eyes & just looks at this one issue.

    All the lies the media has always put out, since the very beginning, has been to cover up and distract from this one issue relating to the military complex, & to the banking complex.

    They have an agenda. If people can be awakened to their agenda, I believe that everyone will begin writing about the agenda online & elsewhere….thus exposing the center of this monster and moving the people to destroy it.

    The Media/Banking/Industrial peak is a house of cards, but only if the people can see it with their own two eyes.

  30. Sibel,

    The money issuers, and the actions of the Bank of England to outlaw Continental Currency was, according to Benjamin Franklin in his autobiography, the PRIME REASON for the American Revolution.

    What needs to be done is a challenge to the Constitutionality of the Federal Reserve Act. The Federal Reserve Act has never been challenged on Constitutional grounds.

    If you give a group of priavte citizens the power to issue money, they will buy their way into your enslavement through the principles of Usury. Usury enslaves, for the borrower is Slave to the Lender (Proverbs 22 and numerous other religious citations).

    They will also form secret societies which will in time form a secret government within an existing form of government – no matter the form of government. Imagine if you will, the President being a member of a Secret Society and the leader of the opposition party being a member of the same secret society. Secretary of the Treasury – member – Vice President – member – Attorney General – member.

    You don't need EVERYONE to be a member, because many can be bought off with favors, bribes, blackmail, contract murder, etc, all funded by the same group of private citizens issuing their fiat money.

    This is the real and present danger, and when you throw in the debt collection agents for the private citizens who issue their fiat money, for example, the IRS – Which IS NOT a government agency – demanding tribute for the repayment of loans made to the government by the same private citizens issuing their fiat money, in the guise of taxation, the takeover of the government by the money issuers is complete, and the rest of the inhabitants of this nation are nothing more than slaves to the money issuers.

    You are an economic slave, until such time as you refuse to "service" the debt of your government via the refusal to pay the taxes it has been forced to impose as a result of its borrowing from the private money issuers, at which time you become A PHYSICAL SLAVE when your ignorant peers find you guilty of tax evasion, should you even get a jury trial.

    This is happening ON A DAILY BASIS in the "land of the free and home of the brave" and is AN ACT OF WAR against the people of this nation.

    These are the INTOLERABLE ACTS and the resistance to this tyranny is NOT getting smaller but larger.

    The money issuers have 3 tennants or pillars if you will – Perpetual Debt. Perpetual War. Perpetual Taxation. If any nation has all three of those Pillars in place, that nation will be ruled by the Plutocrats who foment policy at secret meetings (Bilderburgs, Bohemian Grove, or some other secret meetings). The Congress, Parliament, or whatever representative body no longer represents the People, but the corporations that spring up around the money issuers. The money issuers will also commit various other acts of treason such as false flag attacks to implement their agenda utilizing the hegelian dialectic (the 911 and Anthrax attacks).

    Thomas Jefferson was well aware of all of this and he stated quote: "If there were one provision I would change in the Constitution, it would be the power of the government to borrow money."

    Let me state again Sibel so you understand fully: THESE ARE INTOLERABLE ACTS AND ACTS OF WAR COMMMITTED AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION BY THE MONEY ISSUERS AND THEIR ACCOMPLICES AND AGENTS. And until such time as their legal "right" to issue money is taken away (The Federal Reserve Act), and their debt declared a fraud, the nation will continue to slide into DESPOTISM and TYRANNY an ever inscreasing rate, and this nation will be hated the world over as the hypocrit that it is.
