    The Silver Star Families of America is a nonprofit 501 C 3 organization with one mission: To remember, honor, assist and advocate for the wounded, ill, injured and dying of our Armed Forces from all wars. This necessarily includes the prevention of casualties.

    We have become aware of the warnings issued by law enforcement concerning the threat of violence against our Armed Forces, and their families, here in the United States.

    The Blaze recently ran this story: A representative for a pro-Islamic State hacking group issued a chilling warning to members of the U.S. military and government Wednesday, promising that “very soon” followers of the organization would retaliate for overseas bombing targeting the terror organization.

    “the brothers don’t need to attack them in military bases or secured buildings,” the hacking group member added. “they can now turn up in their houses. in their homes. this is war, what did you expect? u think u can bomb the islamic state and we don’t do nothing back? soon, very soon you will see.” When asked exactly what could be expected to be seen “soon,” the member replied, “you will see when US military and government personnel start getting beheaded in their homes.” Credit given: http://www.theblaze.com/

    A good organization takes on the characteristics and opinions of its members and constituents… in our case the military. Thus since I have never been known as politically correct, I will express what I believe will happen if any of our service members, or their families are harmed.

    This would be the ultimate case of unintended consequences for ISIS. If they should start to play their games on American soil they will be in for a surprise because we are not like any other country in the world: we fight and argue among ourselves and yes we air our dirty laundry in public. But mess with us and you will see people everywhere band together.

    We used to play a game when I was a child called cops and robbers. Invariably the robbers were caught and or shot. I can foresee there being a new game of cops and fanatical Muslims, this game having deadly consequences.

    There will be people surrounding our military just as there was when the shooting occurred at a recruitment center. And I foresee “extra judicial” punishment becoming the norm.

    Harassing a military family on the street will turn deadly. This is America and you can bet your life that there are probably 4 or 5 people carrying concealed weapons around you that would just love to help you meet Allah. Even the little elderly lady crossing the street may be armed and have a grandson in the military….you will never know until it is too late.

    The people will rise up and demand action. You might get away with it once or even twice, then we will be ready for you. You will be playing way out of your league.

    So. Heed this warning: Don’t even think about playing your games in our ball park. We play it better.

    Steve Newton

    Note: The views expressed by our CEO are not necessarily those held by the Silver Star Families of America.

    Understand what your saying.

    But again, there is that pesky oath thing.

    All I can say is that I personally would not want an officer to enforce something that is obviously un constitutional.

    Would you?

    As with a soldier there comes a time for you to decide: Is this order legal?

    Same thing. Sooner or later an officer is going to have to decide if something is wrong and make the right choice.

    I have been there. Sometimes the ramifications can be-—painful.

    I could not disagree with you more. We will just have to agree to disagree.

    One of our first lines of defense against tyrannical laws are our Sheriffs and Police.

    Just because a court has said something doesn’t mean that it is the be all, end all.

    Supporting an un constitutional law is a violation of their oath.

    How can you take an oath and then pick and choose when to obey it?

    Lots of laws are not directly mentioned in the Constitution and are upheld by the courts.

    My opinion is if it is not Constitutional ignore it. You cannot pick and choose in regard to the Constitution.

    (I believe a case can be made the Miranda is Constitutional)

    Duty to obey

    The wording of oaths taken by police officers, and other public officials, may vary slightly from state to state. However, they are all simple and straightforward. The affiant solemnly swears to support, obey and defend the Constitution of the United States, the constitutions of their respective States, and to perform their duties with fidelity. The oath police officers in Utah swear to is found in Article IV, Section 10, of the Utah Constitution and reads: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support, obey and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of this State, and that I will discharge the duties of my office with fidelity.”

    The International Association of Chiefs of Police has developed the following Oath of Honor that is designed to allow law enforcement officers worldwide to commit their professional lives to outstanding public service.

    On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character, or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the constitution my community and the agency I serve.

    The one thing all the oaths have in common is the “duty to obey and uphold the Constitution of the United States. Seems simple. But sometimes it isn’t.

    It has become increasing obvious that whatever side of the aisle one stands on, the government has become unmanageable and has strayed far from the Constitutional roots that our founders laid out as the cornerstone of our Republic, these being the enumerated powers granted to the federal government by the several states as put forth in Article 1 Section 8.

    Technically anything that is outside the enumerated powers given to Congress is not Constitutional. However, we live in the world of today as it has evolved from our founding.

    Still the “duty to obey” should always be on all of our minds when we are enforcing the laws of our cities, counties and states. Let’s look at an example:

    Your state passes a law stating that from “such and such” a date the possession of a firearm will become illegal and they have given you the responsibility to enforce this law. If you know your Constitution, and you should, you know that this law violates the 2nd Amendment and is therefore null and void.

    However, your supervisors give you no choice; you will enforce this law or look for another job. If you do not obey, you will lose your job, your pension and all the hard work it takes to become a law enforcement officer. What are you going to do?

    Upholding your oath doesn’t sound so simple now does it?

    This can’t happen in the United States you say? Example from Connecticut:

    With minor exceptions, state law prohibits giving an assault weapon to anyone; distributing, transporting, or importing an assault weapon; or keeping, offering, or exposing any such weapon for sale. It also, with minor exceptions, prohibits possession of an assault weapon unless the owner lawfully possessed the weapon before the ban took effect and obtained a certificate of possession from the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) for it (in effect, registered the weapon). http://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/rpt/2013-R-0241.htm

    Lawmakers passed a law that is clearly not Constitutional, unenforceable and is widely ignored. It also made thousands of people criminals overnight. Fortunately they have backed off on enforcing this law but what if they had demanded you follow the letter of the law?

    There’s that pesky oath again.

    In my long career I have seen many injustices occur to law enforcement officers who tried to follow their conscience and oath. It’s a shame but most will say it was worth it.

    Enjoy your career but forever keep in mind the oath you have taken. Follow it and you will always be able to hold your head up high. And that is the name of the game.

    God bless and stay safe out there

    114th CONGRESS 1st Session

    S. RES. 136

    Expressing support for the designation of May 1, 2015, as “Silver Star Service Banner Day”.

    IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

    April 16, 2015

    Mr. Blunt (for himself and Mrs. McCaskill) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Armed Services

    RESOLUTION

    Expressing support for the designation of May 1, 2015, as “Silver Star Service Banner Day”.

    Whereas the Senate has always honored the sacrifices made by the wounded and ill members of the Armed Forces;

    Whereas the Silver Star Service Banner has come to represent the members of the Armed Forces and veterans who were wounded or became ill in combat in the wars fought by the United States;

    Whereas the Silver Star Families of America was formed to help the people of the United States remember the sacrifices made by the wounded and ill members of the Armed Forces by designing and manufacturing Silver Star Service Banners and Silver Star Flags for that purpose;

    Whereas the sole mission of the Silver Star Families of America is to evoke memories of the sacrifices of members of the Armed Forces and veterans on behalf of the United States through the presence of a Silver Star Service Banner in a window or a Silver Star Flag flying;

    Whereas the sacrifices of members of the Armed Forces and veterans on behalf of the United States should never be forgotten; and

    Whereas May 1, 2015, is an appropriate date to designate as “Silver Star Service Banner Day”: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved, That the Senate supports the designation of May 1, 2015, as “Silver Star Service Banner Day” and calls upon the people of the United States to observe the day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.

    THE ALARM Number 2

    Rusticus

    I am somewhat heartened by the responses I have seen to my first article. I say somewhat because I am surprised that the sovereign citizens of this Nation have not already rectified the tyranny forced upon them.

    And what surprises further, besides this now being a Nation of over 300 million souls, is that not every abled bodied man has not taken up arms, though the same lack of participation occurred in my time. Let this not trouble you. There are enough true patriots left to insure the Republic survives the upcoming turmoil.

    “Here I sit on Buttermilk Hill, who could blame me cry my fill? And every tear would turn a mill. Johnny has gone for a soldier.”

    Many have asked me what, exactly, has the government done to require us to forcibly return it to its roots? This question in itself shows how far we have fallen away from our Constitution and Divine beneficence. A Nation which allows its future, in the form of its children, to be killed is an immoral abomination.

    A Nation that forces its citizens to purchase something against their will, who confiscates property without due process, who spies on its own citizens, who has turned the whole Republic upside down, making the federal government the highest authority, the Patriot Act and NDAA allowing denial of habeas corpus and indefinite incarceration and having a president that rules by dictate, does not command loyalty but forcible reforming.

    All these things are so profound that, contrary to logic, the people may not understand how few rights they have left. Let me give some simple examples of freedoms lost: Can you, in your wildest imaginings, picture someone telling one of the founding fathers he cannot carry a weapon or indeed make him purchase a license to carry one?

    How about someone telling Washington he could not produce the wonderful spirits that he used to make and to which I have had the pleasure of enjoying?

    (I remember someone saying that on his midnight ride, Mr. Revere stopped at several pubs along his way to spread the word about the British. Not to give credence to what may be untrue but it can be surmised that Mr. Revere partook of the refreshments offered which has led to many amusing anecdotes)

    And who would tell the founders they could not grow tobacco and hemp, tell them what kind of milk they can drink and what their children could eat in school?

    The absurdity of your laws know no bounds. They infringe on your rights to be left alone of an overreaching government intent on meddling in every aspect of your life. How little they regard the laws of nature, the rights, liberties, or lives of men.

    People have also asked, “But who will guide us? Who will lead us, the few, against the most formidable Nation on earth?” To this I say: We faced the same odds as you. We fought the most powerful country in the world to win the day.

    Mr. Hamilton answered the question of leadership in this way:

    "If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual state. In a single state, if the persons entrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair."

    A leader will arise among you, as it should be decided by God. But if one does not then rush in with courage and honor and do the job yourself!

    But should we, for now, cower in the dark?

    No, I say we will not.

    In my time we prayed for Divine guidance that we should prevail against the forces of evil. We bled and died so you may live in freedom and peace. Will you not do the same for your posterity? This Nation was born in the fire and that fire should still run in your veins unless you have turned away from God and Country. I pray not! Take arms!

    And what is your authority for this action? As the President said in 1795, "The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon." God and the Constitution are your authority to revise the course of the Republic. PREPARE!
