A group in the US State of New Hampshire is becoming more vocal in its fight for independence. They believe the federal government has overstepped its role and intruded upon their states’ rights.
A group calling themselves the Free State Project says the only option is to let states govern themselves and set their own rules – much they already do on issues like firearm legislation.New Hampshire is one of the places with the most liberal laws in the country, but now it’s in a fight for even more independence. There are about 1.3 million people living in New Hampshire. The goal of the Free State Project is to attract 20,000 people to its cause within ten years time.
Some prominent figures have spoken out and criticized the recent operations of the government:
“The federal government is assuming powers that weren’t delegated to it. It is already acting to destroy the economy of the United States. It is going to devalue our currency, it is further corrupting domestic policies of the states, motivating them to do things they would not do naturally, except for being bribed with the people’s money,” said State Representative Dan Itse.
“If anything is going to cause the dissolution of the United States, it’s the stimulus package and the excessive spending of the federal government,” he added.
Chris Lawless used to work for the government, but he got fed up and quit. Now, he lives in New Hampshire with his wife and three children. Chris said the US Government is incompetent, and he has no illusions about the promises of change:
“The federal government doesn’t follow its own rules. There are countless laws that break the constitution and yet they don’t seem to care that they’ve broken these laws. Obama hasn’t broken that many laws yet, but he is about to. Just because he is charismatic and well-spoken, that does not make a great leader, it makes great TV,” said Lawless, who is a member of the Free State Project.
Chris says the country would be much better off if each state decided its own needs. That way, when the government makes a mistake, the entire country doesn’t have to suffer, as is happening now in the turmoil of the current economic catastrophe.
“We always say that we’re free – the land of the free. And we’re spreading democracy. A lot of times some other countries are freer. There are decisions being made in Washington that affect our lives that they have no business making,” said Lawless.
New Hampshire is also one place in America where it is legal to carry a gun. Liberty activists make sure they exploit that right to the fullest. When asked why one activist was carrying a gun he responded:
“For the same reason I have an airbag in my car, a fire extinguisher in my kitchen, and a smoke alarm in my house.”
The slogan of New Hampshire is ‘live free or die’. With the ambitions of members and supporters of the Free State Project, the term ‘freedom’ in America is taking on a whole new meaning.
You heard the slogan. Were you one of those taken in by it? Do you still believe that there will be any change in the way the federal government does business? Will the People be able to count on their government to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution and their Freedom?
Think about all that the new administration has accomplished up to this point. What do you see?? Disagree all you want but at this point I see nothing but the same ol’ song and dance. If at all possible I hope to enlighten the readers of this blog to the fact that the 2 major political parties are one and the same, with very slight and inconsequential differences which all serve a single specific purpose, marching in the same direction.
We have seen a “stimulus” bill passed and signed into law under the “economic emergency” without the full transparency that had been promised on the campaign trail while Obama fought to secure votes. This bill was passed in much the same way that the USA Patriot Act was passed during the Bush Administration. And when scrutinized closely we find a few new laws tucked away within its pages that do nothing more than infringe upon the rights of the People and invade privacy while implementing new systems of control over them.
As noted in a previous post, Obama has surrounded himself with “globalists” that work towards their goal of a New World Order. This NWO is not in the best interests of America or the World. It serves to benefit only the lust for financial gain and power of the International Corporations. But I digress…
We have had to endure an assault on our liberty from the Bush Administration which brought protests from around the country, from all corners and regardless of political affiliation.
“The brownshirt Bush regime ignored the protections provided by habeas corpus. They spied on American citizens without warrants. They violated the First Amendment. They elevated decisions of the president above US statutory law and international law. They claimed the power to withhold information from the people’s representatives in Congress, and they asserted, and behaved as if, they were unaccountable to the people, Congress, and the federal courts. The executive branch claimed the power to ignore congressional subpoenas. Republicans regarded Bush as a Stuart king unaccountable to law.”
And what solution did the American People come up with?? Yep, that’s right, they voted for the same ol’ song and dance instead of looking to someone that was outside of the mainstream political landscape. They looked to another “politician” instead of a “statesman”.
We now see that Obama is falling into line with much of what the Bush Administration has accomplished (which was by no means for the benefit of the American People).
“Now we have the Democrats, and the assault on civil liberty continues. President Obama doesn’t want to hold Bush accountable for his crimes and violations of the Constitution, because Obama wants to retain the powers that Bush asserted. Even the practice of kidnapping people and transporting them to foreign countries to be tortured has been retained by President Obama.
The civil liberties that Bush stole from us are now in Obama’s pocket.”
How is that for change? Allow me to demonstrate some of the other “changes” that come from the “Hope for Change” administration.
The current administration is now attempting to block a lawsuit seeking to recover millions of missing White House emails. Why is Obama’s administration continuing the Bush administrations efforts to block this lawsuit?
Onward we march towards Socialism? Benito Mussolini coined the term “fascism” and later said that “corporatism” would have been a better term. Socialism or Corporatism? Take your pick. We are without a doubt headed in that direction as evidenced by the leanings of the new administrations desire to institute mandatory programs of national service.
“Despite denials that Obama plans to institute a mandatory program of national service, his original change.gov website stated that Americans would be “required” to complete “50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year”. The text was only later changed to state that Americans would be “encouraged” to undertake such programs.”
The pattern should be obvious to anyone with a skittle of intelligence. How do you think the Obama Administration is going to react to the Bush Administrations efforts to protect the telecom industry from liability when Bush had successfully enacted law giving them immunity? Will that Bush policy change under this new administration? The pattern suggests that these huge corporations have nothing to worry about and they will continue to allow your privacy to be invaded.
While people are busy living their life, working, throwing “Oscar” night partys (Can you believe it? People actually have Oscar night parties!!) or watching News stories about which celebrity doesn’t wear underwear – the reality around them is gradually undergoing change they may not see the danger of until it is much too late.
Thankfully, there are many people that understand the dangers the runaway federal government brings upon The People and are working diligently to thwart these assaults on the Freedom that the People of this country have long defended and enjoyed. Hmm, maybe I should be wary of a visit by the Sercret Service?
It appears that “hope” for change was the promise. Hope all you want – you won’t see real change until we have Statesman that refuse to be puppets of corporations and their lobbyists.
Get Active. Join Patriots from every corner of this great land and work to effect real change. The promise of “hope” for change is not a promise for actual change. Real Change begins with You.
See the links under “America Acts” to find out how you can be a part of effecting change. Investigate and compare those “other” political partys and their candidates. Do not allow the mainstream medias’ coverage of the same ol’ song and dance routine of the 2 major partys be your only source of information.
 The USA Patriot Act and The Bill of Rights
“Under cover of darkness the President had the substitute bill printed at 3:45 a.m., only hours before the House vote scheduled for that same morning. Out of 435 Representatives, NOT ONE would read the substituted Act before voting on the bill.“
Pass this on to Congress:
1. disobey or disregard something
transitive verb to fail to obey a law or regulation or observe the terms of an agreement
2. encroach on somebodys rights or property
transitive and intransitive verb to take over lands, rights, privileges, or activities that belong to somebody else, especially in a minor or gradual way
From Open Congress Blog:
February 18, 2009 – by Donny Shaw
With the election of Barack Obama in November came anxiety among gun owners that the constitutional right to bear arms would be curtailed. As the rest of the economy slumped, gun and ammunition sales surged following the election. Now there is a specific piece of legislation in Congress that gun-rights activists have identified as the leading threat – the Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Bobby Rush [D, IL-1], would establish a federal gun licensing and registry program that would help the government track information on gun ownership and gun sales across the country. It would apply to handguns and all rifles with a “detachable ammunition feeding device.”
Do you honestly believe there is such a thing as “privacy” anymore? And what about all of those things that you create and share online through media such as Facebook? Are your creations safe from infringement? Is someone else making money from your work?
There is something even scarier than that. View the video and take special notice of the flowchart. Who does Facebook really work for?
The “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001” (USA PATRIOT Act, or USAPA) introduced a plethora of legislative changes which significantly increased the surveillance and investigative powers of law enforcement agencies in the United States. The Act did not, however, provide for the system of checks and balances that traditionally safeguards civil liberties in the face of such legislation.
Legislative proposals in response to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were introduced less than a week after the attacks. Though the Act made significant amendments to over 15 important statutes, it was introduced with great haste and passed with little debate, and without a House, Senate, or conference report. As a result, it lacks background legislative history that often retrospectively provides necessary statutory interpretation.
The USA Patriot Act was signed into law on Oct. 26, 2001. This Act was overwhelmingly passed with 357 votes in the House and 98 votes in the Senate. The Patriot Act decimates the Bill of Rights. And there was hardly a peep from the “We the People.”
The original Patriot Act was drafted by both, Republicans and Democrats, the House and the Senate. But at the very last minute the original was switched with a version authored by Viet Dinh. Under cover of darkness the President had the substitute bill printed at 3:45 a.m., only hours before the House vote scheduled for that same morning. Out of 435 Representatives, NOT ONE would read the substituted Act before voting on the bill.
It is not proper constitutional procedure for a bill that has been hammered out by both parties and both houses to be switched in the early morning hours with a bill prepared by lawyers from the executive branch.
Let us take a closer look at the USA Patriot Act and its effects:
Effects of the Act
The Act encompasses 30 years of spying legislation, laws that the congress had declared unconstitutional for over 30 years because they violate core American principles and the Constitution. The USA Patriot Act invades the lives of every American giving the President full authority under the law to violate our most fundamental principles under the Bill of Rights.
The First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Under the Patriot Act the government can instruct Libraries to turn over lists of books and internet records for everyone or anyone that visits their premises. The Library cannot reveal this “request” has been made and there is a penalty of imprisonment for uncooperative librarians. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU!
The Fourth Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
The Patriot Act provides for searches, without probable cause. Law enforcement can break and enter into your home, collect computer files, reading lists, video and magazine lists and even “bug” your home with high tech surveillance equipment. All of this in direct violation of the Fourth Amendment. The Patriot Act has destroyed Property Rights and allows for illegal examination of your private property.
The Fifth Amendment: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
The Patriot Act makes it legal for any American to be imprisoned indefinitely, without the assistance of counsel, without the right to face their accuser and be denied access to the courts. These provisions within the Patriot Act suspend and nullify Due Process of Law guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.
These provisions also violate the Sixth, Eighth and Thirteenth Amendments which guarantee the right to a speedy and public trial, the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment and the prohibition against slavery and involuntary servitude without first being duly convicted under the law.
The USA PATRIOT Act introduced sweeping changes to U.S. law, including amendments to:
- Wiretap Statute (Title III):
- Electronic Communications Privacy Act
- Computer Fraud and Abuse Act
- Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act
- Family Education Rights and Privacy Act
- Pen Register and Trap and Trace Statute
- Money Laundering Act
- Immigration and Nationality Act
- Money Laundering Control Act
- Bank Secrecy Act
- Right to Financial Privacy Act
- Fair Credit Reporting Act
Show Me Your Papers!!
If you are asked for identification at any time or place by any law enforcement officer – Be Warned! – Non-compliance could escalate to government sanctioned torture.
Could the atmosphere created by the Patriot Act have emboldened law enforcement officers to engage in activities that under ordinary circumstances would not be tolerated in America?
What happened to our fundamental Rights?
Bill of Rights Murdered
Did the members of the house violate their Oath of Office by blindly voting on a Bill they had never seen before? Was this gross incompetence on their part?
During Dec. of 2005, with open eyes and a flagrant disregard for the Constitution – both the House and the Senate voted to extend the USA Patriot Act, broaden its scope and make most of its provisions permanent.
Your Representatives did not hesitate to pull the trigger on your liberties. This action can not be swept under the rug with any suggestion of mere incompetence by these men and women. This second vote evidenced a blatant, brazen and deliberate violation of their Oath. But is it evidence of compromised politicians or was this straight up treason?
It only took 262 Republicans and 77 Democrats to kill the Bill of Rights.
John Ashcroft stated: “To those who scare peace loving people with phantoms of lost liberty my message is this: Your tactics only aid terrorists.”
What is he really saying? Is he claiming that opposition to this Act is not an attempt to protect our liberty but “aiding and abetting” terrorists? Does he dare lump freedom loving Americans in with “terrorists.”?? If you speak out about the danger to freedom that legislation such as this holds do you become a “terrorist” in the eyes of your “servant” government?
Responsibility and Solutions
Many people have bought the line “you can’t fight city hall” and believe this horror cannot be overcome. Please don’t buy into that because there is something that we can do.
In response to the loss of liberty under the Patriot Act, government leaders in states, townships and cities across the country have begun to systematically enact local legislation that prevents the enforcement of the Patriot Act within those localized communities.
The documentary “Washington, You’re Fired” notes that at the closing of 2007 - there were 412 city, county and states which had passed anti-Patriot Act legislation and there were another 277 resolutions pending. Maine was the First State to pass such legislation against the Patriot Act followed by 7 other states, including, ironically, Washington, D.C.
The Bill of Rights Defense Committee helps communities across the country to participate in an ongoing national debate about American Liberty. Their mission is to promote, organize and support national grass roots movements to restore and protect Liberty as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights. Every American is entitled to Bill of Rights protections. It is the responsibility of every Freedom loving American to act to protect the Liberty guaranteed and protected by the Bill of Rights.
If you would like to become involved: go to www.bordc.org, find your state, locate your city and contact the person in charge of Patriot Act legislation in your area. Find out how you can help.
Americans must be vocal on this issue. The USA Patriot Act MUST GO!!

And maybe, just maybe, you will take another look at the “other” political parties and their candidates.
From the American Free Press:
Change? Obama Inner Circle Filled With Bilderbergers
By Victor Thorn
FOR TWO YEARS, Americans have heard an unrelenting mantra of change emanating from the campaign trail. But now that President-elect Barack Obama has begun forming his cabinet, we’re seeing a cadre of more deeply entrenched insiders than any administration that has preceded it.
In regard to key foreign policy advisors, all three of Obama’s selections either initially supported the Iraq war, or still do. On the economic front, each appointee maintains a close relationship with the Jewish triad of Ben Bernanke, Robert Rubin and Alan Greenspan—as well as bailout engineer Henry Paulson. Barack Obama himself is a Council on Foreign Relations member, has strong ties to Zbigniew Brzezinski, and participated in a clandestine meeting with Hillary Clinton at Bilderberg member Diane Feinstein’s house at the time when 2008 Bilderberg members were congregating only a few miles away.
Below is an overview of Obama’s top 14 selections to date. When considering their collective histories, a trend becomes clear, proving that the more things change under Obama, the more they stay the same.

The Venus Project
Are you prepared to design the future?
Although many of us feel we can prepare for our future by thinking, acting, and learning using present methods and values, nothing is farther from the truth – especially in today’s rapidly changing world.
Managing accelerating changes in technology and managing ourselves require new outlooks and approaches. This is now both necessary and possible because of technological change.
For More Information: www.TheVenusProject.com
An article by Devvy Kidd has alerted many readers to the “Committees of Safety.” For those of you that are unaware of this organization, I offer the below quote from Devvy’s article: “Chief Justice John Roberts Meets Obama in Private“
For the first time in 19 years, I have become affiliated with an organization, Committees of Safety. No, I don’t get paid and I don’t get paid for doing my radio show, either. This isn’t about money, it’s about our survival and freedom. It’s about becoming part of the solution instead of just talking or accepting defeat.
Their focus is four top issues and you can read about them on their web site. Time grows short. Anyone, no matter your age, can join and become a freedom fighter because each chapter is local in a county. There’s always work for volunteers no matter what your age. You can continue activism on other issues, but if we don’t force the issue regarding fiat currency and implementing a sound monetary system, reconstitute the constitutional militia, stop the vote fraud and protect our food and water, many other problems will seem like small potatoes.
Numbers build power. Do you know the history of the original Committee of Safety from the colonial era? Many Committees of Safety were established throughout Colonial America at the start of the American Revolution. Back then, the men gathered to discuss the issues and problems facing them. Local militias were generally under the control of the COS and importantly — they sent their representatives to the county level assemblies to represent their local interests. They derived their power from the people. They sounded the alarm when necessary and networked with adjoining counties. You can read the Order of the Provincial Congress signed by John Hancock here. It’s worth five minutes of your time this weekend.
There are 3,141 counties in this country. There are millions of patriots. Just think what can be accomplished with a COS in every county in America? As a cohesive unit, you become part of the solution. Your representatives go to the State Capitols and present the case for constitutional solutions on key issues. Everyone who becomes part of a COS will learn the history of this republic as relates to our monetary system, the true militia and so forth. As your county chapter grows, you meet other Americans who love this republic and are committed to solutions, not more politics. I can tell you from personal experience, it’s very rewarding.
It’s time for retirees – especially our veterans – to step forward with your flexible schedules and leadership qualities. Remember your oath. America still needs you. If there isn’t a chapter in your area, YOU step forward and get it organized. Heavens, our vets are highly trained in a hundred different fields. I realize this will be difficult in major metropolitan areas like LA, but let freedom ring in every county possible. You are not alone. I’ve watched this movement grow over almost two decades. There are more of us out there than you realize. Get on down to your local VFW Hall and start talking. Participate in our Wednesday night conference calls so you know what is going on and listen to those who have active chapters.
COS conducts nationwide conference calls every Wednesday night; click here for information. Last night’s was outstanding. Spend some time this weekend at the COS web site and listen to the free video clips from Dr. Edwin Vieira and Dr. Rand Paul (son of Ron Paul). We are dead serious about our mission.
