Anyone who says the Constitution is a living document is either a tool or an idiot. The Constitution is dead. As of last week, you have exactly zero rights. None. And in fact, as I said a long time ago in my book, it began to bleed with the first stab wound in 1803, in the original coup known as Madison vs Marbury. The case that inverted the entire document by elevating the judiciary over the legislature. We recently saw the final result, as the Supremes committed suicide (Texas vs Pennsylvania) when they refused to save themselves. And the bleeding hostage (the Republic) finally died with them.
Again, anyone who says that the Republic was formed of three co-equal branches is also an idiot. Or worse, in the pay of the Overlords. I’ve said it before, ad nauseum, that the three branches were listed in The Dead Letter in their order of importance and thus, power. Any cursory reading of the document reveals that the Legislative branch had the most power. The power to tax, to regulate, to declare war, to over-ride vetoes, and finally, to impeach the members of the other two branches.
The only check upon their power was the fragmentation of their membership, and the requirement to obtain re-affirmation from the people, every two years. Forget the House of Lords (Senate). They’re only there to slow the train down, not to stop it. Every engine needs a governor.
The Executive branch also has power, but not equal to the original design of the Founding revolutionaries. Did I call them Revolutionaries? Yes. We don’t call it the American Revolution for nothing. This is why we are where we are at today. Revolution begets revolution. Ask Robespierre. This is the natural result of a republic that has been hijacked by democracy. The only question before us today is whether our transition will be to either dictatorship or anarchy. Take your pick. There is no third door. Ask Napoleon.
Wait — I’m wrong. There is a third door. It is called total abject Slavery. Ask Lenin. Open and unabashed slavery, with an Oriental flavor, this time. Vlad Lenin was part Mongol, you know. If you like soy sauce, you’ll like this door. Soylent Green Power. But don’t worry, Uncle Joe (any Joe) will make sure we keep McDonalds open. For those who have their Party-vaccination card, of course. They’re free, so what’s your beef? Oh wait, beef’s going to be outlawed. How about a McVeggie today?
Anyway, the Executive branch has power as well. The power to wage war. Assuming he can raise the money in Congress. Or, unless he seizes the reins and suspends the power of Congress (and the Supremes). Ask Abe. He’ll tell you how that’s done. So, here’s the only question that remains. Can he command the forces he supposedly heads? The power of law enforcement, and ultimately, the armed forces. That is the only question left unanswered. We will soon see.
As for the Judiciary, they had the least power, at least according to the Last Will & Testament the founders left us. Yes, they have lifetime tenure. But Article III, Section 2, subsection 2 says Congress can limit their power to rule in any area, as the Legislature sees fit. Now tell me, Pilgrim, how that sounds today? Who limits whom, today? Yes, we are governed, in reality, by five un-elected Black Robes. So much for Democracy.
I’m fine with that, because we were supposed to be a Republic. But now both ideas are dead. So, the choice before us now is between Cincinnatus and Lenin. One will give up power when the present danger is defeated. The other won’t. Why? Because he is the present danger. Now we are back to the present problem. Which is, America is populated by idiots.
But not entirely. Thus, the real question before us: What is the split? We know that those in the camp of Lenin will stop at nothing. But what are their true numbers and power? The same question confronts the forces of Cincinnatus. What is their order of battle? Who will lead, locally? After all, they are totally fragmented, whereas Lenin’s men are totally united, in both ideology and command.
Who will willingly risk their local death without the hope of national victory (over the Imperial forces)? We know their type. We’ve done this before, one foxhole at a time. All around the globe. Now the question is, will we do it at home? Will we fight like our lives depend upon it? We shall see.
But first, we have to identify the true enemy. No, not the visible puppets at the top. Not even the Gates’, Zuckerbergs, Dorseys, et al. No, the real work in any war is in the trenches, and those who man them. The real enemy is the guy across from you. You’ll never get close enough in the opening round to touch the top tier of evil. Not until we fight our way through their phalanx will we reach their larynx. Only then can we finish the job. Fixating now on the top tier is self-defeating. No, we must defeat them at ground zero first. That is the only hope of victory.
Who then is this enemy? I’ll tell you who — their names all begin with an ‘e’. They are, in no particular order (for they all work in unison), the following four groups; editors, educators, experts and elites. And they all have a base that exists at a local level. At a level where they can be reached. Let’s look at them. Size is relative. Your local editor may not be a Sulzberger, but his influence is the same. It’s just in a smaller sphere of control. Same with the other three. The people who do run for office all hide behind these four groups to get (and stay) elected.
I’ve said many times that the most powerful people are those you can’t vote out. Why? Because they weren’t voted in. None of these four types have to run for office, so they can’t be voted out. But they can be defeated. But not by votes. No, they have to suffer humiliation, at their local level. The level of their visible power.
Let’s look a little closer. Let’s look at what has worked in the past. But only for the left. Why? Because they would do it. And we wouldn’t. And what would they do? They would engage in ‘civil’ disobedience. On a scale large enough that the local authorities couldn’t stop it. Short of mace, water cannons, police dogs, etc.
Who were their targets? The same four E’s I referred to before. But back then, they were our E’s. And lo and behold, when our editors, educators, experts and elites were hounded, we didn’t show up in their defense. We were too busy defending the Imperial front, far away from the home front. And they took our local ground. Which laid the foundation of their national network of like-minded ilk. We learn too late. What happens in our own county is always more important than what happens half a world away.
So, when all these forces arrayed against us worked together, what was their favorite weapon of choice? Bond issues. Which fed their elected puppets, who then enforced the leftist reporting, schooling, testimony (of ‘experts’) and of course, elitist opinion (and finances). Don’t believe me? Ever heard of Alfred Kinsey, the ‘sex-expert’? The one who normalized perversion? The same perversion that was supported by elitists and editors, who pounded away about ‘fairness’ for perverts? And which is now universally taught by our enlightened educators, in our gargantuan ‘schools’.
Schools? Funded by whom? By us, courtesy of the gargantuan bond issues that accrue to the benefit, in every way, of our enemies. And which enslaves us to a local property tax that we have zero control of. In other words, they have talked (hounded) us into enslaving ourselves. And selling our children to them to pay for it.
Think about it. You can’t possibly mobilize people nationally. There are too many Deep State impediments to that. Ears are everywhere. And you can’t trust people you don’t even know. And the only place you do know someone is right where you are. That, my friend, is where you should act. Because that is the only place your effort can have effect.
So, the answer I give, when asked ‘what should we do’ about the obvious theft of our nation is this — take back your neighborhood first. And then your city and county. And free yourself from the Corona hypnosis. That is the very first step. Fearful people never win.
But it will take more than letters to the editor (which are, by definition, useless, considering who controls their appearance). I’ll tell you what it does take. It takes nerve. And crudity, when warranted. Which is now. I’ve seen many stories of public ‘servants’ who are quitting their posts because of hostile public reaction to their Covid-fear-enforcement attempts. Public ‘Health’ experts and ‘educators’ who are caving to social pressure. On-the-street encounters that are not pleasant, for them.
Now expand that to your local paper, and those who advertise in them. And your local school administrators (and those ‘teachers’ that will not teach — which actually is a favor, if you think about it). If half the people they meet in public spit on the sidewalk as they pass by, it will have an incremental effect. A positive effect. Why? Because in polite America, it takes an offensive act to get the change you want. That’s how the left got what they wanted. The question is, do you really want it?
Really? Well, have you ever gone down and picketed your local store that advertises in your local paper that supports lockdowns? No? But you say you’re willing to revert to your 2nd Amendment rights before trying anything less? Listen to me — you can drive them from your local public square. It’s all about your public attitude. Most of your local opponents will melt away, if enough people began to personally act rude to them and their ideas. Show up where they are, and refuse to be silent. They won’t all go away, but they will start to shut up. And their voices are what is driving the fear-machine. And fear is the real killer. It’s time to lift our voices. Rudely. Locally.
I once took my kids out of school for a semester just to hurt the local school budget (which is paid by attendance rolls). I couldn’t get anyone else to follow. But I did it anyway. And made myself a pain-in-their-ass for a long time. The stakes were lower then. Or so we thought. But the local face of the enemy is still the same. And it becomes more emboldened each day by our polite patience. We need to lose the public politeness. And our patience. If we want our freedom, that is. Freedom, if you haven’t noticed, is lived locally.
Then, if we’re smart, we’ll go back to our original constitution (the Articles of Confederation) that the real founders left us. A Constitution that refused to allow a strong central government. They wanted power to be local. Why? Because they had a crystal ball. And it showed them the year 2020.
We’ll have to do this one county at a time, one state at a time. We may have to fight beyond words. But that’s the price we’ll have to pay if we want anything better than the Gulag. And next time, demand paper ballots. And no votes for anyone beyond those on the tax rolls.
