Defending America the American way
WND ^ | 7/14/2013 | Alan Keyes

The Obama faction is now openly engaged in a campaign to use the power of the U.S. government to overthrow the U.S. Constitution. Because they have not or will not let themselves be tutored by America’s founders, the GOP majority in the House of Representatives is showing itself to be incompetent to deal with it. Obama’s disciples of Marx and Saul Alinsky every day parade abuses infuriating to a solid majority of the American people. But instead of a strategic response that rallies this aggrieved majority in defense of America’s liberty, the so-called leaders of the party that claims to stand in opposition to Obama’s push for totalitarian socialism offer a ragged, piecemeal response.

This reminds me of the set-piece battles between American militiamen and the disciplined troops of the British Army in the early days of the American Revolution. In those battles, the British regulars answered the similarly ragged volleys of the American patriots with such devastatingly unanimous replies that the American irregulars often took to their heels in short order. The irregulars fared much better when they harried the British troops as hit and run sharpshooters, skillfully using every shred of cover available. The lesson here is not just about the early example of modern guerrilla warfare Americans set before the world. It is rather a more general and adaptable insight. Those early American patriots fought best when they fought for America in the American way.

If we rely on shallow, jerry-rigged expedients like special prosecutors and such, the cause of liberty must fail. Such expedients were invented to evade and ultimately discard the constitutional appeal to the people that respects their constitutional sovereignty. GOP leaders pretend to represent our anger and righteous opposition to the Obama faction’s unconstitutional abuses. But in recent years they have continually undermined and betrayed that opposition. Regardless of their lip-service, we must reject their shallow posturing.

We must demand, instead, that they mine the logic of our organic laws – the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution – for the precious practical wisdom that will guide us to victory, as it guided our forebears. If they do so with any degree of understanding, they will find and use the constitutional ordinance exactly suited for the battle we are in. They will hear and act upon our urgent battle cry: IMPEACHMENT NOW! Do your duty, and leave the rest to God and the American people.

Sounds like a call to bear arms. Defending America “the American Way” is by our beloved favorite arms, rifles and pistols.

BTW fly a good flag today, it’s Flag Day. I am flying a reproduction of the civilian national flag (pre-civil war) that civil authority flew over courthouses, to distinguish civil control, versus the military flag which later became the only national flag we know today.

Obama has twice taken an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic" and to "bear true faith and allegiance to the same." He has never honored that oath, and, based on his policy proposals and objectives, he has no intention to honor it after again reciting that oath on 20 January 2009. Obama seeks to, in his own words, "break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution."


The flag in front of this house will remain as you see it here.

Inverted for the international signal for distress.

At half-staff to memorialize the death of the Constitution on 11/4.

Special prosecutors are appointed by the attorney general. Does anyone think that any AG appointed by Holder would get to the bottom of these scandals, or only further serve to cover them up?

A special prosecutor is not the answer. We need leadership from the Republicans willing to state the obvious and then back it up every single day until this “man” is hounded out of office.
