As a response to 911, our elected representatives have given to the American people, via many statutes, The Department of Homeland Security - a civilian agency. They have also broadened the national powers and militarized FEMA.
Equally, C.O.P.S. (Community Oriented Policing Services) has been massively and federally funded to set up private policing patrols in most, if not all, of the new deed-restricted and “planned” communities where many American citizens now live. These policed communities are being raised in every state in the nation – rapidly.
City and county law enforcement are now required to cross-train with military, and those lines have now blurred. All across our nation, para-military forces, including foreign troops at our Southern border, are performing practice drills – over and over and over again.
A full-blown Martial Law system, which includes the “suspension” of the Constitution of the United States, has been set into stone by presidential Executive Orders. Most of these orders were declared prior to 911, but for the sake of this article, we will overlook that fact for now.
Without question, our elected representatives have rapidly erected plans for a police state in our nation. Now, let’s assume that their decisions to raise a paramilitary police state in the United States of America are merely a response to 911. For now, we will also overlook the thousands upon thousands of treaties, charters, compacts, and “partnership” bureaucracies that were signed and implemented behind our backs – the ones with direct links to the United Nations, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization, and the Organization of American States, for example. However, we will put all of this aside for now.
But let’s get to the issue of homeland security, as in securing our form of government and the freedoms guaranteed to the people of the 50 United States. Post 911, our elected representatives raised a new homeland security system, which includes full-blown and documented plans for 1) the suspension of our Constitution, 2) military rule of the nation, and 3) a national populace stripped of their civil rights – all of them.
With this in mind, I suggest to you the following:
Our elected have no authority whatsoever, explicit or implicit, to plan for the suspension of our Constitutional form of government, as they are sworn by oath, and by the income we pay them, to its upholding and defense.
Martial Law in the United States of America will result in unthinkable and unintended consequences.
That organizing a paramilitary system, with powers to suspend Constitutional authority and government is, at best, detrimental to the nation, its people, and a very shortsighted and dangerous plan.
Should a police state ensue, it will result in permanent and sweeping societal and governmental changes. All nations that lost their governmental structures, and citizens who lost all civil rights due to military take-over, never woke up one sunny, magical morning and found their governments and rights restored. If in doubt, I refer you to South and Central America for the results of paramilitary take-over.
No American citizen, including some in office, wants Martial Law, a police state, and military dictatorship EVEN IF there IS another 911, or worse. In fact, that would be the worst thing that could possibly happen. Stay with me and I will tell you why.
Our elected representatives have not exercised clear, Constitutional authority by planning for, much less erecting, a full-blown police state, and with the full intention of suspending our nation’s government.
Is there a homeland security problem? Yes, indeed, there is. Have our representatives devised an emergency response system that has enormous potential for unthinkable consequences? Yes, they certainly have. On this point, I am in total agreement with the ACLU.
So, the question begs – why would our elected representatives make unconstitutional decisions to raise a new national security system that is fraught with danger BEFORE using their Constitutional authority, which not only permits them to LEGALLY defend against violations of law, insurrections, and/or invasions, but is clearly defined within the Constitution, as well? When our Constitution contains an amendment, as well as Article I, Section 8, Clauses 15 and 16, which were written SPECIFICALLY to address homeland security due to violations of law, insurrections, and/or invasions, and specific instructions on how to defend and protect all of the states in the nation, why did our representatives completely ignore this amendment and instead step wholly out of their legal authority to devise a police/military dictatorship? Excuse me, but planning to destroy our Constitution and our national independence is a criminal act. No one inside of government or otherwise has the legal authority to devise such a plan.
When our elected representatives are employing inappropriate and dangerous means, of any kind, that could result in a police state, which they devised, they are acting outside of any legal authority AND they are not following their LEGAL book of instructions for securing the homeland. Usurping the governmental structure of this nation by erecting a police state is not only fundamentally destructive; it is also a criminal act in this nation. Law is law.
So, to our representatives, I say this: Instead of illegally shredding the Constitution, how about using the document you swore to uphold to secure this nation – if that is, indeed, your intent. Planning and erecting a dictatorship in the United States, using synthetic and “what if” scenarios and hysteria to do so, is beyond stupid. Equally, you are affirmatively destroying the structure that employs you. Your shortsightedness is, frankly, astounding! Equally astounding is your refusal to look to the Constitution for answers, assuming you are looking for answers.
Now, to my readers, as WE are law-abiding people, we, too, must look to our Constitution for homeland security. But first, let’s look at some historical parallels to our current condition, which serve to clarify our current and terribly vulnerable condition, thanks to our elected and their gun controlling means and methods.
Consider the French and Indian Wars. During those times, many “enemies” of the settlers were unknown entities and potentially anywhere and everywhere. Colonists had to deal with the international war between the French and English, which drew them into a rather irregular war, and they also had to deal with Tory and Indian bands, which were more akin today’s terrorism-style conflicts. Those wars were a mix of undeclared conflicts and a declared war, but more akin to “terrorism” threats. People had to be prepared for just about anything, at any time, and attack by multiple means and numbers. Then consider the Revolutionary War, which immediately followed, a declared and international war. The founding fathers of the United States were very familiar with both the French and Indian conflicts AND declared and international warfare. These men had experienced and seen it all. And this is specifically why they worded the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution as follows:
"A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
Now, the founding fathers of this nation, having had experience with undeclared and declared conflicts and wars, specifically placed homeland security powers and authority into the hands of the each of the states’ militias, which were not only necessary to the security of each state, but were also MANDATORY. Via the Colonial and State Militia Acts of that time, every male between the ages of 16 and 60 were REQUIRED to be in service to the defense of their states and, if necessary, their nation.
The right of the people to keep and bear arms was absolutely understood by the founding fathers as necessary to the “security” of “free” states. Therefore, a “free state” is one in which the population of that state is always armed IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN that state’s security. This is not rocket science. Reinstate the Constitutional definition of “militias,” which were organizations specifically created to protect the homeland using a fully armed population, and you have homeland security. But how, you ask?
As with most historical perversions, the word “militia” now denotes something entirely different to the minds of American people. We now believe militias to be radical, fringe-type groups. However, from a Constitutional point of fact and law, the “Militia of several States” meant every male person, age 16 to 60, was required by law to 1) have adversary-worthy weapons in his home, maintained in proper working order and subject to inspection, and 2) a proper store of ammunition, and other accoutrements that were necessary to defend his city, state and/or nation.
Let me make this as plain as I can – The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America states that a well-regulated Militia is NECESSARY to the SECURITY of a free state, and therefore the defined Militia is to be 1) a fully armed population, 2) with arms and ammunitions in ALL homes, and 3) is NOT an option but a LEGAL DUTY of ALL male citizens. The right to keep and bear arms is, therefore, 1) an absolute, and 2) applies to all free male citizens, according to our 2nd Amendment (there are/were exceptions – most do not apply today being related to the legal ownership of slaves).
According to our purposefully ignored 2nd Amendment, which has also been politically perverted into a keep and bear-only mentality, the actual meaning of the 2nd Amendment IS homeland security. Consider the following: Imagine if America, today, had an entirely armed population, as did our Colonial ancestors in every state. Every man on every street is armed with standard, military issue weapons. Now, let us then consider how we would feel about our natural right of resistance and self-preservation to restrain the violence of ANY type of oppression, insurrection, or invasion.
The 2nd Amendment not only provides our elected representatives with a homeland security book of instructions, it also explains, explicitly, that in order to have freedom AND security simultaneously, a well-regulated Militia is “NECESSARY.” For any insurrections, you call up the Militia, which is every man, in any state, or in any neighborhood, on-call, every day of every year, and armed.
And again I say to the careerists in office, the Constitution solves the problem of securing the homeland. Not one of you can question the fact that a Militia is necessary to the security of a free state. The need for the reinstatement of the Militia of the several states is not an obscure fantasy. It is a conclusion of fact and law that the Constitution has adopted, and therefore applies to every public official. No public official can deny this conclusion, because every public official has taken an “oath or affirmation to support this constitution.”
In conclusion, I ask all gun-owning readers to please forward this article to your gun clubs and associations. I would like to see the NRA, the GOA, the NFA, the AFA, and all other gun associations take the lead and initiative to revisit what actually may have been the founding intent of their organizations. We need to lobby all state legislatures to introduce bills to reinstate the states’ militias according to the 2nd Amendment and the current state of American affairs. We the People have the legal right to raise the Constitutional Militia in each and every one of our states, and the proper way to do so is legislatively. The language of the Constitution will not be undermined. Nor is it up for reinterpretation by anyone. Legality is on our side.
We also know that ANY gun control, whatsoever, goes directly contrary to our 2nd Amendment rights SPECIFICALLY due to the fact that homeland security IS a dire fact of today’s world, and SPECIFICALLY due to the raising of a police state, which WILL disarm the public in order to succeed. You’ve heard the term “Gun-Free Zones?” How about Defense-Free Zones, or for that matter, how about a totally disarmed nation other than those in the police state? Have you ever heard the legal term “badge of slavery?” Disarmament is the first badge of slavery.
Also, what is the point of winning the battle against “terrorism” overseas if we lose the battle at home? Considering the absence of American troops from American soil for the last 100 years, what other option to homeland security is viable? Equally, and as history relays in one police state after another, usurpers and tyrants initiate criminal activities via secret-police-style apparatuses, spying, intelligence and investigatory agencies. Resistance networks tend to get “broken up” prior to armed force and public displays of the actual police state itself.
I would rather see America LEGALLY defended by her citizens than by a foreign/domestic-hybrid paramilitary force created by careerists and bureaucrats, who have unconstitutionally and illegally erected police state infrastructures all across the United States of America – and to what purpose and end only the globalists know, for now.
It’s time to take back our government and our Constitutional right and DUTY to defend our Constitution and constitutionally guaranteed freedoms. We have every legal right to do so, and our 2nd Amendment mandates that Militias of the several States (meaning every one of our states) be raised to secure this nation. Assuming the boys on the Hill will not be so inclined, we must demand that all of our states comply with the mandates of the 2nd Amendment. They cannot legally refuse to do so as they are subordinate to the Constitution and its 2nd Amendment.
For help in reinstating the Constitutional Militia via your state legislatures, contact Dr. Edwin Vieira via NewsWithViews.com. The answer to our vulnerability and our security is very simple and very absolute. Tyrants, usurpers with armies, and foreign terrorists are no match for a nationally armed population. The answer is so simple and clear. America must remain free and sovereign America. Therefore, you arm the full citizenry to secure freedom, as instructed by the 2nd Amendment. This IS homeland security.
We live in an environment inundated by ignorance and disinformation. Therefore, it is understandable why we have lacked for so long any social solidarity or sense of mutual reliance upon each other as American people. We have been purposefully, covertly, divided into paranoid separatist groups via the liberal/conservative, young/old, religion and pigmentation divide mechanisms. I suggest that being a part of your state’s militia will help you to remember that you are an American, with rights and freedom first and foremost, and that your neighbors – all of them – have and are the same.
We need to be united once more as a nationality that is based upon free people and THEIR government. We have to be united, because 1) a police state cannot possibly exist under the Constitution, but is being planned nonetheless, and 2) by defining “homeland security” as a centralized bureaucratic apparatus that interlinks intelligence agencies, police departments and programs, community special forces, FEMA, technological surveillance and databases, and the Armed Forces, Congress has evaded its DUTY “to call forth the Militia, as mandated by Article I, Section 8, Clauses 15 and 16 of the Constitution, to execute the LAWS of the Union, to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions.” Instead they have invented and erected an anti-constitutional infrastructure for Martial Law, military take-over, and a police state. This was a remarkably stupid thing to do.
For all of you who have asked ten thousand times what you can do – this is it. I suggest you begin with your gun associations and Dr. Edwin Vieira via NewsWithViews.com. We have to get bills introduced into the state legislatures to reinstate the Militias of the several States.
In understanding your Constitutional rights and obligations, the true power (and duty) to understand the Constitutional Militia lies in Article I, Section 8, Clauses 15 and 16. The 2nd Amendment emphasizes the importance of these clauses because its statement that "a well regulated Militia [is] necessary to the security of a free State" ties down the interrelationship so well, and binds all public official to accept, follow, and implement it – no questions asked.
But, as a matter of law, the Militia do not depend on the 2nd Amendment. Even if there were no 2nd Amendment, the powers/duties of the Militia would be the same. We’re getting smarter every day! Now let’s get the job done! We need the help and power of our gun associations, and we need them now. Start emailing, calling, and forwarding. Also refer them to Dr. Edwin Vieira for guidance.

Sounds like some fear-mongering going on. Just like the rumors of Soviet equipment that was staged at various places in the US to aid in an invasion.
