    Army Preps for Tea Party 'Terrorists' By Mark Alexander · Thursday, April 29, 2010 "The duty imposed upon [the president] to take care, that the laws be faithfully executed, follows out the strong injunctions of his oath of office, that he will 'preserve, protect, and defend the constitution.' The great object of the executive department is to accomplish this purpose; and without it, be the form of government whatever it may, it will be utterly worthless for offence, or defence; for the redress of grievances, or the protection of rights; for the happiness, or good order, or safety of the...

    Last spring, University of Hartford historian Robert Churchill released a new book about "libertarian political violence and the origins of the militia movement, To Shake Their Guns in the Tyrant’s Face (University of Michigan Press). He should have waited a year. This past week the book's subject matter came roaring back to the forefront of American politics, as politicians and their friends in the media policed the acceptable limits of dissent in a democratic republic. Notably, this week also marked the April 19th anniversary of both the government crime—the assault on Waco—that most inspired the rise of the 1990s militia...

  • The Constitution...Who Cares?

    We hear a lot about the Constitution today. The “Tea Party” has been bringing up the Constitution along with many talk radio personalities like Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Lavin, and Sean Hannity. I have been writing, and speaking about the Constitution for years. But two questions must be asked; 1) Who cares? & 2) Why should we care? These are very important questions since it is clear that at least 50% of Americans are clueless (I am being generous, there are a lot more that are clueless) about the principles of liberty and the founder’s brilliance in forming our...

    Stewart Rhodes does not seem like an extremist. He is a graduate of Yale Law School and a former U.S. Army paratrooper and congressional staffer. He is not at all secretive. In February he was sitting at a table at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at a fancy downtown hotel in Washington, handing out fliers and selling T shirts for his organization, the Oath Keepers. Rhodes says he has 6,000 dues-paying members, active and retired police and military, who promise never to take orders to disarm U.S. citizens or herd them into concentration camps. Rhodes told a NEWSWEEK...

At the bottom of page 10 and top of page 11 of the 12-page transcript of the FPOTUS remarks, there are these paragraphs: *** ...But I think that all you have to do is to read the paper every day to see how many there are who are deeply, deeply troubled.

    "Tea Party Movement Spreads To Military The Tea Party movement has gained a foothold in the armed forces. A new Tea Party group, Armed Forces Tea Party Patriots, has grown quickly since being launched last month by an active duty Marine Corps sergeant. The group, which vows to "stand up on the very soil we defended to preserve common sense conservatism and defend our Constitution that is threatened by a tyrannical government," currently has over 400 members, who have signed up through its Facebook page, though many are not active duty military. And it has close ties to the broader...

    As a powerful political counter-stroke it was masterful. You have to give them credit. Putting a provocateur into a group of not-very-well wrapped Millennialists (see Churchill, To Shake Their Guns in the Tyrants Face) and assisting them to: a. build and distribute pipe bombs and b. talk about plots to kill cops that involve killing innocents, family members, etc., was well thought out, perfectly targeted, craftily planned, brilliantly executed and impeccably timed. I realized this when I was outside talking to the three cops who showed up at my door to collect the birdshit Easter card. To begin with, the...
  • Idea: Citizens Take Oath to Constitution to Protect and Defend

    In Colorado, during a Tea Party protest at the state capitol during the Health Care debate last Sunday, a vet lead all of us (enmasse) in an oath similar to the ones taken by members of the armed services and congress, raising our hands in allegiance to the Constitution to support and defend. At our largest upcoming Tea Party gathering in Colorado (Tax Day Tea Party), we are considering using the standard oath, led by a vet and asking all participating citizens to raise their right hand while making the oath. The "office" referred to in the oath would be...

        ~The FReeper Canteen Presents~ Road Trip: Camp Pendleton, California Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is the major West Coast base of the United States Marine Corps and serves as its prime amphibious training base. It is located in Southern California between the cities of Oceanside and San Clemente. The base was established in 1942 to train U.S. Marines for service in World War II. By October 1944, Camp Pendleton was declared as a "permanent installation" and by 1946, it became the home of the 1st Marine Division. This is the main road for traffic into the base....

    North Country Public Radio ^ | March 11, 2010 | David Sommerstein
    The left-leaning Mother Jones magazine's fascinating cover story this month profiles a growing militia-style group on the right called Oath Keepers. The twist is that Oathkeepers are largely active-duty members of the military who are preparing to disobey their Commander-in-Chief. The story features Lee Pray (not his real last name), a private based at Fort Drum: In Pray's estimate, it might not be long (months, perhaps a year) before President Obama finds some pretext—a pandemic, a natural disaster, a terror attack—to impose martial law, ban interstate travel, and begin detaining citizens en masse. One of his fellow Oath Keepers, a...

    Ft. Smith Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 26 February, 2010 | Steve D. Jones
    The month of February began with the snowstorms pounding the eastern part of the country, strong storms which caused a strange event in King, North Carolina. A “state of emergency” was declared there, causing a state law to kick in; a law which disarmed citizens and banned alcohol sales. The people of King were infuriated. Later in the month, a strange conversation took place on Fox’s Bill O’Reilly show in an interview between O’Reilly and Oath Keepers founder, Stewart Rhodes. Bill O’ actually justified disarming law-abiding citizens during times of emergencies. But how would this type of “emergency gun control”...

    Is the Tea Party-connected group, the Oath Keepers, an "extremist right" group as the partisan bomb-throwers on the left have been fond of alleging? That's the proverbial question of the day as Oath Keepers founder, Stewart Rhodes, made an appearance on the self-proclaimed "humble correspondent's," Bill O'Reilly's, No-Spin Zone. His appearance was the direct result of O'Reilly opening up this question of so-called "radicalism" among Tea Party supporters by hosting committed left-winger, Mark Potok (handsome devil, if you call overly gelled, curly hair and overly big eyeglasses "handsome"), of the Southern Poverty Law Center on his show a day before....

    It seems patriot groups are springing up all over the place, each of them hoping to be the catalyst for change and all of them lamenting the loss of freedom and the downward spiral of our sovereign nation into one of a dictatorial police state. While the entire country reels from the onslaught of unconstitutional regulations and codes that are contrary to our Constitutional rights and liberties we are none-the-less regularly assaulted both in print and video by those who see these efforts as a threat to what I can only assume is their own perceived benefit from maintaining the...

    ELYRIA, Ohio -- Upward of 300 demonstrators, many energized by Tuesday's election of Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate, gathered near Lorain County Community College on Friday to wave signs and banners and try to make their voices heard by President Barack Obama. They lined Abbe Road, which was closed to traffic, to chant "Can you hear us now?" in the direction of Obama's arriving motorcade and later toward Ewing Field House, where the president spoke around 2 p.m. About 100 of the group who stood to the end, shouted "You lie" and booed as the departing president's motorcade...

    From Florida to California, Conservatives Are Challenging Moderate RepublicansA political movement is sweeping the country, and taking politicians down.The most recent victim of "tea party" activists was Florida Republican Jim Greer,who resigned from as state party chairman this week, in part because of the activists' objections to his alliance with Florida's Republican governor, Charlie Crist, who is running for the U.S. Senate. The activists are vocally supporting Crist's opponent -- a young, outspoken conservative, Marco Rubio -- and some believe the tea party group may bring down Crist, too."As you know, there is a great debate in our party on...

    Renew America ^ | 7 Jan 2010 | Tim Dunkin, however, the proposed nullification would be in support of a constitutional right — which removes the moral and emotional legitimacy that accrued to the Feds in the Arkansas integration case. Would Obama and Co. have the nerve to try to use the military to force New Hampshire to violate the 2nd amendment rights of its citizens? Would the military allow itself to be used in such a way?
