This is our initial response to a reader. 

I don’t fully agree with the use if disruption to levy our right to free speech. However, it appears the organizers of the event cut the students short from asking their questions. It is also reported that the Dean had the bulk of time to ask questions to Kerry, but the students had less than half that time.

The only reason Meyer ran to the front of the line was to emphasize this, then he went ahead and asked his questions. Kerry was even willing to answer the questions and told the officers to leave Meyer alone. I’m sure if Meyer were permitted to speak as scheduled, where he had to wait his turn, he would have asked his questions without such emotion.

But it all falls back to the point, how far is too far when it comes to police force and brutality? There were 5 or 6 police officers (depending on the report you read). Surely, that many cops could contain and escort him out.

There is an incident in a different state with a David Snyder. He was escorted out of a council city budget meeting, beat, bloodied and arrested. They didn’t use a taser on him and were able to get him outside. However, he protested and tried to resist arrest. He was also denied his right to free speech.

Both these acts, in different locations, signal things to come. They signal our government has turned into a tyranny and that our innate God-given freedoms will be oppressed. Those who oppose or resist will be beaten and made to look like scapegoats in the public’s eye.

Here is another denial of freedom of speech by police officers, this time during a city council budget meeting. The man just wanted more than a minute to express his views and opinions, but he was taken outside, man-handled, beat, bloodied and arrested. They dropped the charges on him, but apparently, he still had to post bail.

Not only will they beat you, they will also steal your money! 

Watch the video below:

UPDATE: Youtube removed the video to censor what really happened.

The folks over at Neocon News believe we don’t know the full happenings of the white Florida college student who was tasered at a recent Kerry forum. Everyone is talking about this news story now, even the big outlets. They are circulating a different video.

When is freedom of speech not permitted? Why are police or law-enforcement authorities allowed to man-handle and taser a college student for speaking his mind?

Should these types of anti-Constitutional acts of violence be allowed in our country? I say taser the police officers who man-handled and arrested this man!!!

We cannot allow our government agencies to abuse our God-given rights. Stand up and be heard!

An Open Letter to the New Generation of Military Officers Serving and Protecting Our Nation

By Dr. Robert M. Bowman
Lt. Col., USAF, ret., National Commander, The Patriots

“The Nuremberg Principles says that we in the military have not only the right, but also the DUTY to refuse an illegal order. It was on this basis that we executed Nazi officers who were ‘only carrying out their orders’… The Constitution which we are sworn to uphold says that treaties entered into by the United States are the ‘highest law of the land,’ equivalent to the Constitution itself. Accordingly, we in the military are sworn to uphold treaty law, including the United Nations charter and the Geneva Convention… Based on the above, I contend that should some civilian order you to initiate a nuclear attack on Iran (for example), you are duty-bound to refuse that order. I might also suggest that you should consider whether the circumstances demand that you arrest whoever gave the order as a war criminal.”

Dear Comrades in Arms,

You are facing challenges in 2007 that we of previous generations never dreamed of. I’m just an old fighter pilot (101 combat missions in Vietnam , F-4 Phantom, Phu Cat, 1969-1970) who’s now a disabled veteran with terminal cancer from Agent Orange. Our mailing list (over 22,000) includes veterans from all branches of the service, all political parties, and all parts of the political spectrum. We are Republicans and Democrats, Greens and Libertarians, Constitutionists and Reformers, and a good many Independents. What unites us is our desire for a government that (1) follows the Constitution, (2) honors the truth, and (3) serves the people.

We see our government going down the wrong path, all too often ignoring military advice, and heading us toward great danger. And we look to you who still serve as the best hope for protecting our nation from disaster.

We see the current Iraq War as having been unnecessary, entered into under false pretenses, and horribly mismanaged by the civilian authorities. Thousands of our brave troops have been needlessly sacrificed in a futile attempt at occupation of a hostile land. Many more thousands have suffered wounds which will change their lives forever. Tens of thousands have severe psychological problems because of what they have seen and what they have done. Potentially hundreds of thousands could be poisoned by depleted uranium, with symptoms appearing years later, just as happened to us exposed to Agent Orange. The military services are depleted and demoralized. The VA system is under-funded and overwhelmed. The National Guard and Reserves have been subjected to tour after tour, disrupting lives for even the lucky ones who return intact. Jobs have been lost, marriages have been destroyed, homes have been foreclosed, and children have been estranged. And for what? We have lost allies, made new enemies, and created thousands of new terrorists, further endangering the American people.

But you know all this. I’m sure you also see the enormous danger in a possible attack on Iran , possibly with nuclear weapons. Such an event, seriously contemplated by the Cheney faction of the Bush administration, would make enemies of Russia and China and turn us into the number one rogue nation on earth. The effect on our long- term national security would be devastating.

Some of us had hoped that the new Democratic Congress would end the occupation of Iraq and take firm steps to prevent an attack on Iran , perhaps by impeaching Bush and Cheney. These hopes have been dashed. The lily-livered Democrats have caved in, turning their backs on those few (like Congressman Jack Murtha) who understand the situation. Many of us have personally walked the halls of Congress, to no avail.

This is where you come in.

We know that many of you share our concern and our determination to protect our republic from an arrogant, out-of-control, imperial presidency and a compliant, namby-pamby Congress (both of which are unduly influenced by the oil companies and other big-money interests). We know that you (like us) wouldn’t have pursued a military career unless you were idealistic and devoted to our nation and its people. (None of us do it for the pay and working conditions!) But we also recognize that you may not see how you can influence these events. We in the military have always had a historic subservience to civilian authority.

Perhaps I can help with whatever wisdom I’ve gathered from age (I retired in 1978, so I am ancient indeed).
Our oath of office is to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Might I suggest that this includes a rogue president and vice-president? Certainly we are bound to carry out the legal orders of our superiors. But the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) which binds all of us enshrines the Nuremberg Principles which this country established after World War II (which you are too young to remember). One of those Nuremberg Principles says that we in the military have not only the right, but also the DUTY to refuse an illegal order. It was on this basis that we executed Nazi officers who were “only carrying out their orders.”

The Constitution which we are sworn to uphold says that treaties entered into by the United States are the “highest law of the land,” equivalent to the Constitution itself. Accordingly, we in the military are sworn to uphold treaty law, including the United Nations charter and the Geneva Convention. Read the rest of this entry »

Join the Resistance!

August 21, 2007

RESIST/REVOLTWe are forming a de-centralized movement that has no formal leaders, composed strictly of true American patriots, Truth activists, and American citizens who love and enjoy their God-given right to freedom.

There is many ways you can help preserve liberty and ensure American citizens know the Truth. Here is a few ways you can help today:

  • Visit our Myspace presence and add us as your friend

  • Design, produce and distribute flyers that inform your family, friends, and neighbors about President Bush’s ability to invoke martial law and its consequences for every American citizen

  • Spread the Truth about the September 11th, 2001 incidents that happened on American soil

  • Host weekly RESIST/REVOLT meetings in your community and discuss ways you can further The Resistance

  • Form a RESIST/REVOLT activist group with your family, friends and neighbors and get out there and spread the truth about our government, terrorism, and politics

In the future weeks to come, look for some exciting things. We will be posting regular short videos. Our fellow bloggers out there will find these videos useful in promoting our cause, even viral.

The Resist/Revolt Mission

August 19, 2007

OUR MISSION

We have formed a movement and network to connect and unite our fellow American patriots, truth activities, believers of God and supporters for a single purpose: to protect and preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American people.

We are calling everyone to this cause, to resist the tyrants that are planning to oppress, arrest and slaughter the American people. In our hearts, we have already chosen to stay and defend our families, friends, loved ones and fellow Americans, if martial law is enacted. We will be the resistance against oppression.

Too many events in history, past and present, have proven fatal for people who did not stand up against their governments. The American Revolution showed us how our founding fathers and people could successfully win a war and begin a new nation. The American Civil War proved that we could put an end to the slavery and oppression of tyrants.

Let us prepare ourselves for the resistance against martial law. Let us prepare ourselves for the revolution of a nation!

Rise Up, Resist and Revolt
