You’ve really got to be careful when you travel to third world countries. They have these banana republics where they can steal from you, beat you, and lie to you. You might go to jail but the authorities there can literally get away with murder, theft, and deceit. And heaven forbid that you end up in jail there because they are hellholes in which you will likely be beaten, raped, and forced to perform slave labor.
Wow, aren’t you glad it isn’t like that in America? Here in the land of the free, we don’t have to deal with that kind of corruption.
If you ever had any doubt that we are living in a plutocracy, the exoneration of Hillary Clinton (ironically, the day after we celebrated our revolution and independence) should be sufficient evidence to assure you that, indeed, we are living in a place in which power is determined by your wealth and your connections to wealthy people.
The Clinton Investigation
I wasn’t surprised when the FBI announced that
he didn’t want to suffer an unfortunate and deadly accident Hillary Clinton didn’t deserve any criminal charges for her carelessness with national security, but I was saddened. I felt sick, all day, because the truth of what our nation has become was made so painfully, blithely obvious.
I was saddened because that was more than just a nail in the coffin of justice. It was the dirt being shoveled on top of the coffin. Any illusion we had about equality and freedom in America was buried alive, suffocating under the weight of the Clintons, the mainstream media, and influential social networks.
We all know that Hillary Clinton was treasonously careless with our national security, and yet she won’t even receive a slap on the wrist. Not even a misdemeanor. What Hillary Clinton has gotten from abusing her position is rich. Filthy rich.
She has lied since the very first question arose. Everything she has said in her own defense has been a lie. The AP fact checked them, if you’d like your information from a mainstream source. They found all of the following to be lies, simply by using public records.
“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.”
“I never received nor sent any material that was marked classified.”
“I responded right away and provided all my emails that could possibly be work related.”
“I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for personal emails instead of two.”
Comey himself admitted that several of these statements were lies. And yet, somehow, the chief of the Federal Bureau of Investigation found that Clinton doesn’t deserve any kind of punishment – oh and that she’s still an awesome candidate for the highest office in the land.
The FBI had to rewrite the law in order to say that Clinton was not guilty. From tAndrew McCarthy, a former assistant US Attorney:
There is no way of getting around this: According to Director James Comey (disclosure: a former colleague and longtime friend of mine), Hillary Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code (Title 18): With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust. Director Comey even conceded that former Secretary Clinton was “extremely careless” and strongly suggested that her recklessness very likely led to communications (her own and those she corresponded with) being intercepted by foreign intelligence services.
Yet, Director Comey recommended against prosecution of the law violations he clearly found on the ground that there was no intent to harm the United States.
In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require. The added intent element, moreover, makes no sense: The point of having a statute that criminalizes gross negligence is to underscore that government officials have a special obligation to safeguard national defense secrets; when they fail to carry out that obligation due to gross negligence, they are guilty of serious wrongdoing.
Even the wildly liberal NY Post was baffled by this decision. (I actually never thought I’d link to them except to make fun of what they said, but there you have it.) Those who know Hillary Clinton know that she lives by an entirely different set of rules.
Oh – and if your name is NOT Hillary Clinton and you mishandle classified information, it seems that the FBI isn’t so warm and fuzzy. If your name is Bryan Nishimura and you are just a Naval reservist you get prosecuted, fined, and lose your top secret clearance forever.
Meanwhile, on social media.
It isn’t only the FBI who is aiding and abetting this destruction of our country. If you are under any delusions that the election is not rigged, the justice will prevail, or that we have nothing to worry about if we aren’t doing anything wrong, it is time to do some deep, difficult research.
The folks pulling the strings over on Facebook really seem to want to see Hillary Clinton elected. And before you roll your eyes about Facebook, you have to understand that the social media network is incredibly influential. They promise to use their power neutrally, of course, but the fact remains that they could tilt the election. An interview on Gizmodo tells us that this is only lip service to fairness, though.
Just like the IRS was proven to have targeted conservative groups, a former Facebook employee says that the staff “routinely suppressed conservative news.” There are 5 ways that Facebook can nudge the “right” voters to the polls and control the information presented about the candidates. (You can check those out here.)
But that’s not all.
Some segments of the news media has announced that the “right response to Donald Trump” is a media blackout. 6,166 idiots who clearly don’t understand the benefit of hearing both sides of the story even petitioned the media to blackout coverage of Trump. Now, I’m not a big fan of Trump, but I think we can all agree that we have a right to hear what the guy has to say if we have to listen to what Clinton has to say.
But it isn’t just Trump who got the short end of the media coverage stick. Except for the time that bird landed on his podium during a speech, Bernie Sanders also suffered from the media’s pro-Clinton leanings. A Harvard study confirms this fact. With millions of votes left to be counted in California, the state announced that Hillary Clinton had won the primary there. Many believe that this is patently untrue and that Sanders actually won the state but the truth lies out there covered up somewhere with the other Hillary Clinton scandals. As far as I could find, there is no final tally…anywhere.
They don’t even try to hide their bias. Yesterday, Nick Bernabe of the Anti Media made this catch on Facebook. C-Span paid to sponsor a post on Facebook that was positive about the FBI’s decision, just so more people would see it.
This isn’t about Hillary Clinton.
I’m as disgusted by the fact that Hillary Clinton is above the law as anyone else. But this is only a symptom of the cancer that is eating away at the foundations of our country.
- The vocal majority is more worried about being politically correct and avoiding microaggressions than they are about the real issues, thus distracting completely from those issues with their incessant, childish whining.
- Our electoral system is so rigged now that it is obvious to everyone who is paying even the slightest bit of attention. From the Ron Paul campaign to the Bernie Sanders campaign to the Trump campaign, you have to know, your vote doesn’t mean Jack Spratt.
- More onerous regulations are heaped upon the little people every single day. Things like “egg-handlers licenses” and “fishing licenses” and “ammunition permits” are nothing more than extortion. They steal our rights then sell them back to us at a profit.
- There are two sets of rules. One for them and one for us. Our set means we are guilty until proven innocent. The rules for folks like Hillary Clinton are in a completely different book.
- We are losing our due process of law. Vehicle checkpoints, the TSA, civil asset forfeiture – none of these are constitutional. The “authorities” are stopping you, delaying you, questioning you, searching you, and stealing from you, all without probable cause and without a day in court.
- We are being systematically disarmed. The hullabaloo every time someone uses a firearm is deafening. But there is no hullaballo every time a person of a religion that is politcally incorrect to mention wastes a whole bunch of people in the name of their deity that also can’t be mentioned.
- The people with the most money win. Banks get bailed out by taxpayer dollars, but taxpayers go bankrupt and lose their homes. The FDA approves products that are killing us with ingredients that are “generally recognized as safe” but regulates ladies making homemade snaitary napkins out of business. The USDA allows glyphosate-soaked produce to be put in nearly every single item at the grocery store, but makes it too onerous for a farmer who uses no chemicals to tell people they don’t use chemicals. Every single one of those alphabet “watchdogs” is only guarding the special interests, all the while pretending that they are watching out for every day people.
They are getting richer and more powerful, while our lives become more difficult. Their positions in Washington have no term limits and they sit there, feasting for a lifetime, while feeding us the dregs of whatever is leftover. They tax us, they regulate us, they fine us, they try to force us to purchase things like Obamacare which would impoverish us, and meanwhile, they are exempt from it all.
I’m sick of it. Aren’t you sick of it?
Stock up, my friends, because we are in for a bumpy ride.
Why isn’t there a revolution right now?
I’m sure someone will tell me, “If you don’t like our government, you can get out.”
That is the equivalent of telling a woman if she doesn’t want to be raped, then she should not leave her house. That is the equivalent of saying if your car is broken down, you should abandon it on the side of the road and set off on foot to get a new car. That is the equivalent of informing someone who is being beaten by an attacker to just walk away.
I’m not getting out. Our freedom is worth fighting for. The people who should get out are the ones who are stealing it from us.
Every single “representative” in Washington DC needs to be afraid to go against their constituents. They need to understand that the new parameters of the position are to first honor the people who elected them and not the special interests that make them rich.
People are starting to wake up. They are starting to see the truth. They are learning that George Orwell was a freakin’ prophet, not a writer of fiction, when he said, “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.”
Now that you’re awake, what do you intend to do about it?
Even if you like to “stay out of politics” the time has come for you to get involved. For you to be loud. For you to support our natural rights to not be coerced and extorted. For you to demand the truth and make people listen.
And wait for it. The bread and circuses will be coming soon. Look for another “incident” to occur to take people’s minds off of what is really going on. People will be distracted by whether that dress is blue or gold. They’ll be horrified by another supposed act of terror and they’ll throw some freedom out the window in order to be safer. They’ll pick a side when Celeb 1 cheats on Celeb 2 with Celeb 3 and then they all decide to be polygamous and dress up like dogs in the bedroom.
This is how awakenings get sidetracked. Because most Americans seem to have the attention span of goldfish, it’s easy to manipulate them out of their outrage about the Clinton issue.
But some of us won’t be distracted. It’s time to take our country back. It’s time to demand our natural rights. To flout unjust laws. To refuse to be silenced. To look the truth in the eye and be willing to accept what we learn, no matter how much it goes against our eloved normalcy bias.
You don’t have to choose the lesser of two evils. You don’t have to accept the status quo.
We have the right of revolution.
The right of revolution was irrevocably intertwined in the Constitution and in the documents of the Founding Fathers.
We can withdraw our consent. We can revolt against:
- The members of the Executive Branch who are above the law
- The members of Congress who are out for money and power and not there to represent the wishes of the people who elected them
- The media who manipulates beliefs and opinions to fit an agenda
- The corporations who destroy our health, personal finances, and freedoms in the quest to become even wealthier
- The whiny crybaby cultural big mouths who are more worried about hurting someone’s feelings than they are about liberty
- The people who sit there and further the status quo by accepting it
These are the people in power. It is a plutocracy instead of a constitutional republic, and those with the most money win.
It’s time to take that power back. It’s time to take our country back and we can do it using truth as our weapon.
According to the Declaration of Independence
“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 of 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.”
That means that you don’t have to accept the unjust laws. That means you don’t have to quietly take it, muttering under your breath that it isn’t right, but not daring to raise your voice. That means that “they” are only in control of you if you allow it.
Only 3% of the population fought in the Revolutionary War, and 10% actively supported them.
There are nearly 316 million people in the United States. (source)
If 9,480,000 people quietly and peacefully revolted by withdrawing their consent to be governed by tyrants we could not be silenced.
If 31,600,000 people supported those revolting, we could not be stopped.
It’s time to use our right of revolution. It’s time to bring truth and justice back to America.
