Posted on 10/24/2011 3:55:29 PM PDT by STARWISE
A veterans groups called The Veteran Defenders of America has now answered that question. In a documented Call-to-Action titled a A Declaration to Restore the Constitutional Republic former Military and Law Enforcement Officers have come together to demand that all oath-takers immediately execute their oaths in preservation of the Constitutional Republic.
At present, every member of the Military, Law Enforcement, Justice, Congress and federal employment is in direct violation of their oaths. As they stand idly by allowing an anti-American transformation of our constitutional form of government, they do so in direct violation of the oaths they have each taken.
This is not just an act which justifies their immediate removal from office it is in fact a federal crime punishable by extreme measures.
As a result, an undisclosed number of veterans across the country have joined forces to demand that every individual who has ever taken an oath to the Constitution immediately and without reservation, begin to adhere to that oath.
They have put out an open Call-to-Action for every oath-taker and every true American patriot to join them in Washington D.C. on Veterans Day, November 11, 2011 at the Washington Monument to demonstrate the will of the people and the resolve to protect and defend our Constitution and the free Republic for which it stands.

Abuses and Usurpations Barack Obamas once strong approval rating now stands at only 19%. The approval rating of congress is no better. The people have lost all faith in their government
The demise of our Constitutional Republic has been underway for nearly a hundred years. As the people placidly accepted intolerable offenses against the republic, the states, and the Constitution for decades, the Central power in Washington D.C. grew ever more powerful, ever more abusive, and ever more disconnected from the very people it was formed to represent.
During the last three years, the current administration has committed the most egregious offenses against the people, the states and the Constitution, since the founding of our country and today, they operate as a virtual dictatorship, against the governed, beyond the scope and authority the people granted them in the Constitution and at odds with the will of the vast majority of American citizens.
The actions of the Obama Administration in total, rise to the level of treason against the United States and its people.
The Democratic Socialists of America are currently running Washington D.C. and they recently issued this statement in a Call-to-Action for their millions of members
We are the alternative to the tea party conservatives, the Republicans whose only program is to say no, the Democrats who have forgotten what progressive politics really are and the progressives who think that they can stand apart from the left.
This must not be permitted to stand
Among other offenses, abuses and usurpations, is the following list of transgressions (detailed in Appendix A) - altering our constitutional form of government and system of justice without authority
Violations against Article I of the U.S. Constitution - Congress
Violations against Article II of the U.S. Constitution - The office of President
Violations against Article III of the U.S. Constitution - Judicial Powers
Violations against Article IV of the U.S. Constitution - The State
Violations against Article V of the U.S. Constitution - The Amendment Process
Violations against Article VI of the U.S. Constitution - Oath to the Constitution
Violations against the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 3rd Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 4th Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 5th Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 6th Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 7th Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 8th Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 9th Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Violations against the 10th Amendment of the Bill of Rights
Unlawful use of Military force, here and abroad
Violations of International Treaties and Laws
Numerous violations of the public trust
Misuse of the peoples resources
The bankrupting of the nation, the states and the people
Taxation without representation
Confiscation and Redistribution of the peoples earned assets
Abuse of Judicial power At this late date, the individually itemized list of abuses and usurpations would require an encyclopedia of unconstitutional offenses to the Republic and there is no evidence to suggest that there remains even one legitimate honest courtroom in the country to which all evidence could be presented.
There is no Article or Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which the current leadership in Washington D.C. has not abused and/or usurped over the last three years.
**Important update, event and unusual multiple list ping!
Sorry for any duplications
or unwanted intrusions. It’s
important that word gets out.
God bless and protect America.
Please pray for her and us, and
especially for our brave military,
vets and their families.
Would have been my mom’s 74th b-day.
This could have been written today:
The Unanimous Declaration
of the Thirteen United States of America
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
* Take Our Declaration of Independence Quiz and Test Your Knowledge of America’s Great Freedom Document
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. —Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.
He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.
He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.
He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:
For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:
For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing taxes on us without our consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:
For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:
For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these colonies:
For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:
For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive on the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.
We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Nationwide Call To Action - Veterans March On 11.11.11 Washington DC
WE THE PEOPLE
On behalf of the Veterans and former Service Members of America, who fought and died for freedom and liberty here and abroad, and all good and decent American citizens from sea to shining sea, we the people of the United States of America hereby demand the immediate restoration of our Constitutional Republic and an end to the Democratic Socialist abuses and usurpations which have become commonplace in the daily corruption of our governmental offices.
As the true American people sit idle, the enemy grows in number and strength.
No longer will we sit idly by and tolerate the utter destruction of our country, at the hands of anti-American elitists in Washington D.C. who have mistaken the peoples peaceful tolerance for acceptance of their ill-advised behaviors.
The time for all good and decent Americans to stand together, in defense of the Constitution, the Republic, freedom and liberty, has arrived. The Rule of Constitutional Law must prevail. We call upon all who have taken an oath to protect and defend, to take appropriate measures now.
We the people hereby demand
The immediate and unconditional orderly resignation of Barack Hussein Obama, II
The immediate and unconditional orderly resignation of Joseph R. Biden
In addition to the known fact that the Obama/Biden ticket was advanced by way of fraudulent representations concerning the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama II, under Article II requirements for the office of President, the Obama/Biden has committed countless crimes against the U.S. Constitution, our Republican form of government and the American people while in control of the Executive Branch.
As a result, these players must be removed from office and held accountable for their actions as well.
This group includes, but is not limited to the following individuals -
The immediate and unconditional orderly resignation of the entire Obama Cabinet, including but not limited to;
the White House staff and unelected Czars
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton
Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner
Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta
Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr.
Interior Secretary Kenneth L. Salazar
Acting Commerce Secretary Dr. Rebecca M. Blank
Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
Energy Secretary Steven Chu
Education Secretary Arne Duncan
Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano
EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson
Office of Management & Budget Director Jacob J. Lew
UN Ambassador Susan Rice, the entire Council of Economic Advisers
Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan
Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor
· House Speaker John Boehner
· House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
· Senate Leader Harry Reid
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell all of whom have committed treasonous acts against the people, the states and the U.S. Constitution.
Further, to reinstate the rule of law and the Law of this Land, the U.S. Constitution and our constitutional republic -
In compliance with Article II Section I of the U.S. Constitution for the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office, the Same shall devolve on the Vice President, the Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected.
That every verifiable member of The Communist Party USA, The Socialist Party USA and The Democratic Socialists of America be immediately publicly identified and removed from office for overtly acting against freedom, liberty and the Constitutional Republic.
That in the event that these individuals refuse to immediately resign in an orderly fashion designed to serve the best interests of the United States, we demand that the 66 members of the peoples House who voted against the recent raising of the nations debt ceiling, to immediately begin impeachment proceedings against every member of the Obama administration.
That the seven remaining members of the U.S. Supreme Court place an immediate stay on all Executive and Legislative actions taken under the term of the unconstitutional administration beginning January 20, 2009.
That remaining members of the House and Senate immediately act to name new majority and minority leaders of congress, and work with the U.S. Supreme Court in the assigning of new temporary Executive Branch members, acting on behalf of the people and the will of the American majority until such time that the citizens of the United States can elect their new representatives in 2012.
The immediate and unconditional dissolution of all special interest congressional caucuses, including but not limited to The Progressive Caucus, The Black Caucus. In addition, the immediate closure of any and all congressional committees which have been given unconstitutional powers, including the Debt Committee of twelve just formed. Individuals are elected by the people to represent ALL of the people, not special interest groups.
That each state government immediately act to enforce its 10th Amendment right to protect and defend the people of their state against a tyrannical central power in Washington D.C., by recalling all State Guard troops home to protect the sovereignty and security of their respective citizens, as well as state resources and governments.
That each state government act immediately to cut itself off from federal funding, and take the necessary actions to balance their own state and local budgets immediately.
These are our initial demands and nothing less than complete compliance with each of these demands is acceptable to the people of the United States. These demands have been published for public support and delivered to all members of Congress.
And exactly how are you going to take the government back?
I’ll be there.
God bless you!
Do you know of others attending?
I hope you have a lovely day for a wedding.
Understandable. God bless you for defending the
flag and honoring our precious veterans.
Perhaps you could ask if there’s any button, pin,
etc. available on one of the involved sites I posted
Best to you .. thank you for your service, sir!
I FRmailed you as soon as I saw your post.
What’s CW2? I sure don’t have any list for them.
I too have a commitment to march in the Veterans day parade in my home town.
66 House members? Takes a majority to impeach. And 2/3rds in the Senate to remove.
Please ping your lists, email this, to get
out the word. Thank you!
Seriously, think through the demands you posted in 11. How can you call for a Constitutional restoration by demanding unconstitutional methods be adapted?
Are you a veteran of military service who took
an oath to defend the Constitution?
We have a national election in just over a year. THAT is the Constitutionally prescribed method to get Obama out of office. We need to be working towards that, and not chest-beating rallies in DC that have no basis in reality.
Like I said. We have an election in a year. Let's work on that.
I do not consider that military service.
But I missed the section of the First Amendment where I had to have military service to note that the proposals in 11 are extra-constitutional and have absolutely no chance of ever happening, and themselves represent a dangerous concept on their own accord.
A truly good commander looks for the “right opportunity” and seizes the advantage of the moment.
George Washington at Trenton.
Sam Houston at San Jacinto.
Both endured much grumbling from the ranks before they decided to commit to battle and both were amazingly successful.
The outcome of both had long term effect.
Our task will only begin when Obozo is removed. The real battle will be removing the damage he has caused and his supporters from positions of authority.
The only effective way to remove most of them will be to DownSize DC! Move the worthwhile functions back to the states. That is the only way to remove the cancer he has brought. IT IS TIME!
“I’m not the one calling for extra-Constitutional methods that have utterly no chance of ever happening, dude.
Like I said. We have an election in a year. Let’s work on that.”
How much do we really know about this organization. This is possibly a false flag ops intended to give 0bama an excuse to declare martial law and suspend elections.
CW2 is Civil War, Part 2. That is...what some are expecting once A) race riots start up either approaching or after the election, B) Obama loses the election and attempts to suspend the Constitution and/or declare martial law, or C) Obama decides to grab power and cancel/suspend the elections, knowing he (and lberals/democrats/marxists/socialists) will lose.
Thinking about this has made me wonder: Who would the enemy be, and how would we know them?
Since you didn’t live military service and take the oath to defend the Constitution, I think I’d leave it to those who did, many career military, and are legally gathering together to pronounce their mutual agreement that the resident of our WH, his administration and members of Congress, who also took the same oath, are not upholding theirs.
It is up to them and the reactions of Americans how their gathering proceeds from there.
OATHS OF OFFICE
Our public servants swear to protect and defend the Constitution. Our job as citizens is to know the Constitution and to hold them to their solemn oaths.
Maybe all the vets who are supposed to march in a parade should march to D.C. instead and have someone “stand in” for them in the parade. Seems to me like saving our Republic is pretty important. Not trying to be snarky, just wonder if leaving a noticable gap in the parades and marking that spot with something that will call attention to the Veteran’s March on D.C. would be an effective way to get people’s attention.
I'm sorry, but your military service, be it appreciated, does not give you immunity from criticism when the agenda you posted in #11 has utterly no chance of happening, is extra-constitutional and will do nothing to help with the Constitutionally-mandated method for removing Obama - namely the next election.
There is no way Obama will be removed by the Senate. Dems have a majority there.
So he is in the White House until January 2013 at least - assuming we do win the election. The sooner folks come to grips with that, the better. We have an election to win.
I think a veterans march to DC is a fine idea. But demanding the Constitution be upheld by extra-constitutional measures is a contradiction in terms. It needs to be a protest, not an exercise in absurdity.
Their message: "we issue the following CALL for peaceful disobedience."
The call is led by MG Paul Vallely, Col. James Harding and Col. Harry Riley of Veteran Defenders of America (VDA), a service member division of The United States Patriots Union. Both are member-only organizations formed and funded by an undisclosed number of members.
By my statement, I didn’t mean that I was in the military, though I come from family of many military members, including those who endured much suffering while in service, to this day.
I fully support this peaceful protest and legal assembly ..it’s extremely critical and very important that the public, the military in particular, take every opportunity to publicly acknowledge the horrendous corruption and daily decimation of this great nation, the Constitution and our most sacred covenants and values by this radical. The rest.. the reactions .. like so much, is yet unknown .. in the hands of public opinion and of God.
How many thought that Rick Santelli’s TV rant would subsequently inspire the formation of loose tea party patriot organizations across the nation and that they would grow markedly to have the huge election/political impact they do .. back two years ago?
Just who better has the right to call out the abuses and rogue and extra legal practices of Obama and his administration and to their oath of office and to the Constitution?
God bless our incredible military, vets and their families.
We can never repay them for all they’ve given for us.
But seriously, take a minute and read through the demands in post 11. They are pointless, absurd and go beyond the realm of not happenening. I smell the over-the-top antics of internet blowhard JB Williams behind it. Demanding extra-Constitutional action to defend the Constitution is contradictory and counterproductive.
Stick with pointing out how horrible Obama has been and call for voters to keep voting out the rascals, including the worst of the GOP. THAT worked in 2010, we don't need to change the message for 2012.
From the link, here’s a link to the organization:
“A veterans groups called The Veteran Defenders of America has now answered that question. In a documented Call-to-Action titled a A Declaration to Restore the Constitutional Republic former Military and Law Enforcement Officers have come together to demand that all oath-takers immediately execute their oaths in preservation of the Constitutional Republic.”
Here are three names with info copied from the link above, maybe people know about them. I know Gen. Vallely just a bit from reading on FR:
Colonel James Harding is one of the most decorated military leaders and pilots of our time and we are honored to welcome him aboard the Veterans Council of the United States Patriots Union.
A note from the founder Richard Van Waes
As veterans, we swore to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America and to defend it against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Quite simply, unlike any period in our long history, our freedoms are in jeopardy. Our domestic borders have been silently invaded with people who intend to harm us. There are thousands of terrorists and terror cells within the United States borders who have one goal as their agenda - the destruction of America as we know it. This simply cannot take place.
You, as a veteran, have training, skills and experience that uniquely enable you to prepare your family and community in the event of disasters, either natural or man-made. REMEMBER, we ALL can contribute some of our skilled training, in some small way. Together, we are a strong force.
May God bless you, your family and our nation. The time is now, join us.
It is my great privilege and honor to rally America’s veterans to join the ranks of the Veteran Defenders of America - now a division of PatriotsUnion.Org Network.
I meet veterans across America who share my grave concerns about the future safety of our country and the preservation of our cherished liberties.
Perhaps the greatest threat to our safety and liberty is the threat of radical Islam. This threat goes well beyond the threat of terrorism. Islamists, both inside and outside of America, are looking for any and every way to infiltrate and subvert our country through what is known as “stealth jihad.”
There are other threats to our safety and security, such as the threat of natural disasters, where a grassroots, volunteer organization of veterans could make a difference.
You and I swore an oath to defend our nation and our Constitution against all threats, foreign and domestic. When I retired from the Army, my oath did not retire, and I trust yours didn’t either. I call upon you today, my fellow veterans, to join me in honoring that oath by becoming a member of the Veteran Defenders of America.
The motto of the Veteran Defenders of America is “The eyes and ears of freedom, because we know freedom isn’t free.” I invite you to become a member of the Veteran Defenders of America and join me as our “eyes and ears of freedom.”
Paul E. Vallely, MG US Army (Ret)
