#Point2Ponder: Choosing Security Over Liberty

me violateHow do we fall into the obvious trap of trading Liberty for Security? Do you remember when Al Sharpton was recently clambering to supplant our local law enforcement with the Department of Justice?

I want to bring something to light that may have eluded us; the federal government has NO AUTHORITY to have ANY armed agents beyond the military. Constitutionally speaking, any authority that is claimed to have armed federal agents must place these agents under the SAME umbrella as the military. That means:
Any use of armed federal agents within the States is a violation of posse comitatus. Can I repeat myself? If Congress has armed agents their only justification can be through their power to “raise and support armies.” That is Article 1 sec 8 clause 12. There is NO authority for an armed DOJ, EPA, DHS, FBI, FDA, or ANY of these unconstitutional federal agencies. Not only that, the power to raise and support an army is limited to TWO YEARS. Read this clause in the Constitution:

“The Congress shall have Power To …raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Termlynch treason than two Years….” Article 1 sec 8 clause 12

You may say, “Well that’s Al Sharpton, he’s crazy.” But truth be told that is exactly what we have when our Congress CONTINUES to fund these unconstitutional agencies with their unconstitutional power!

What about the DOJ and AG Loretta Lynch creating the “Strong Cities Network” in an effort to GLOBALIZE our local police forces?
Watch this and see how they are already doing this! https://youtu.be/ZSVAuA-NOzE

“America will never have a standing army, Americans would never support such tyranny” is what we hear. I am here to tell you America ALREADY has one (or two or three or…) and Americans already support this tyranny. Not only that, our local police and Sheriff, yoke up with these standing armies and allow our State and local governments to aid in this usurping of the Liberty of the people through the insidious tool of shared jurisdiction.
Please pay close attention to what founder Noah Webster said,

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”

libertyWe might claim that Noah only meant we should prevent the “military” from forming a standing army. But I want to remind that Noah’s words were “military force, at the command of Congress.” We now claim that Congress can command “other forces” than the military, eg DHS, DOJ, FBI etc. So that would clearly make the clause “at the command of Congress” much more important than the word “military.”

Time for us to get EDUCATED to the tyranny that is really in front of us, behind us, and next to us, forcing us to submit to a standing army in the name of security.
