Obama, Secessionist Movements and the Nobel Prize

by Russell Longcore

OSLO, December 10, 2009: Today, President Barack Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize in a ceremony in which his speech was like a long commercial message promoting continued war. Obama gestured politely toward advocates of non-violence like Albert Schweitzer, Dr. Martin Luther King and Ghandi, but clearly stated that his intention for America is to be the policeman for the globe.

Here is an excerpt that should enlighten all Americans about what the President is thinking.

“Moreover, wars between nations have increasingly given way to wars within nations. The resurgence of ethnic or sectarian conflicts; the growth of secessionist movements, insurgencies, and failed states; have increasingly trapped civilians in unending chaos. In today’s wars, many more civilians are killed than soldiers; the seeds of future conflict are sewn, economies are wrecked, civil societies torn asunder, refugees amassed, and children scarred.

I do not bring with me today a definitive solution to the problems of war. What I do know is that meeting these challenges will require the same vision, hard work, and persistence of those men and women who acted so boldly decades ago. And it will require us to think in new ways about the notions of just war and the imperatives of a just peace.

We must begin by acknowledging the hard truth that we will not eradicate violent conflict in our lifetimes. There will be times when nations – acting individually or in concert – will find the use of force not only necessary but morally justified.”

It is not any secessionist movements anywhere on this globe that have trapped civilians in unending chaos. That is entirely the purview of the nation-state. Confiscatory taxation, unending regulation of every facet of human life, and the destruction of our economic system and currency through central planning is the source of unending chaos, both at home and abroad.

And the “Just War theory?” The only just war I know of is the war in which you are defending your own borders against invasion. Invading another country is unjust, and used to be unlawful.

Obama praised pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi in Myanmar, Zimbabweans who voted despite election violence, and pro-democracy protesters in Iran.

“It is telling that the leaders of these governments fear the aspirations of their own people more than the power of any nation,” Obama said.

I wonder if Obama and the Mobocracy Looter Minions of Washington will still feel the same way when one of the United States serves him with a Secession Document.

President Obama, with his own words, shows the world that he is not familiar with the job description for President clearly stated in the US Constitution. He said:

“I make this statement mindful of what Martin Luther King said in this same ceremony years ago – “Violence never brings permanent peace. It solves no social problem: it merely creates new and more complicated ones.” As someone who stands here as a direct consequence of Dr. King’s life’s work, I am living testimony to the moral force of non-violence. I know there is nothing weak -nothing passive – nothing naïve – in the creed and lives of Gandhi and King.

But as a head of state sworn to protect and defend my nation, I cannot be guided by their examples alone. I face the world as it is, and cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the American people.”

What a shameful statement of ignorance.

A president is required by the Constitution (Article II, Section 1) to take the following oath: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

That oath says NOTHING about swearing to “protect and defend my nation.”

Most of the things Obama has done since taking office have been grossly, criminally unconstitutional. Mr. Obama would have a full plate of activities if he would just protect and defend our Constitution. If past presidents had stayed within the strictures of the Constitution, the USA would not have any threats today.

If America ever finds and elects a man or woman who will simply be true to the oath of office they take, America may have a chance of survival. However, no President since before Lincoln has been serious about the Oath. If history is any guide for our future, there is no Oath Keeper on our national horizon.

    Will the states that secede lose all their U.S.military bases. Will they have to provide for their own defense. Will they lose all the border guards along the Mexican border . Etc etc.
    Seems like this is a pie in the sky solution

  2. bert king says:

    Texas has 16 bases., Florida 15, Georgia 10, NC 7, SC 6. What states will get those Yankee dollars?

  3. Old Rebel says:

    So just the “growth” of a secessionist movement justifies government-sanctioned violence against a restless subject population.

    Looks like Obama is the Second Coming of Lincoln — with a little “One-Percent” Dick Cheney thrown in.

      It took a few years to create this mess and it is going to take years to fix it. I have seen many changes in my life and this county is on the verge of a collapse from within. United we stand and divided we fall. Kinda looks we are headed for a fall.
      My advice to my grandkids is ” Get a Chinese dictionary, learn Chinese and learn how to use chopsticks

    • bert king says:

      I am waiting for you believers in freedom to pull the plug on my comments that disagree with yours. So much for Freedom of speech in the new Stupid States of America.

      • dumpdc says:

        Dear Bert: Your comments are always welcome here. In answering your question about military, Texas will establish a State Militia that will be perfectly suited to handle border issues. Yes, Texans might miss those Federal dollars, but remember that Washington caused the collapse of the dollar and hyperinflation. Texans will be glad to get their hands on real money for a change. The country is going to get real rough after the economic collapse, just as you said. Secession is the way to overcome the crisis Washington caused.

  4. Jack Oatmon says:

    This is just more evidence of how far the government elite have strayed from the Constitution. However, the problem remains, how to return to our roots.

    There is no way it will be reversed with legislation. The web is too tangled and those in power too entrenched to give up that easily. Besides, they got their by deceiving the masses and until that deception is cured, a reversal of the regulatory momentum will not happen.

    Unfortunately to turn back the clock will require more than secession. It will require a war. But first the war of ideas must be won. What is it that We The People want? Until the sheeple are transformed back into thinking human beings and they grapple with the root causes of America’s decay, only then will there be any chance of American returning to her great roots. But most don’t even know what those are.

    It will require a revival, a moral and religious revival. I forget if it was Madison or Adams who said that the US Constitution was inadequate to govern anything other than a moral and religious people. Well, we have the government we deserve because so few acknowledge, let alone follow the God of the Bible whom our forefathers put their faith in. Until that happens, any radical change to restore prosperity to America will only be a coup, not the true revolution we so desperately need. Such a revolution must occur in our hearts first, then our minds must be opened to reality and then we stand a chance. Key to that is seeking the truth, and not being satisfied with pat answers from the lamestream media. The American sheeple must dig deeper and stop thinking the meaning of life is more toys and more conveniences.

    Most people may not understand what is really going on, but they know it’s time to batten down the hatches and get ready for trouble.

    • dumpdc says:

      Dear Mr. Oatman:
      You made so many excellent points. I disagree about revolution and war, though. Secession that occurs after economic meltdown should be less problematic, since Washington will be a little busy, like a cat covering shyt. But the American people will get real focused when they start missing meals. But they will have to make some crucial decisions. Washington will put out propaganda and blame everyone but themselves. The states will tell the secession story. Americans will have to choose which “god” they will serve. It is certainly time to batten down the hatches.

    bert king,

    “United we stand and divided we fall. Kinda looks we are headed for a fall. My advice to my grandkids is ” Get a Chinese dictionary, learn Chinese and learn how to use chopsticks”

    In fact, China has its own problems, most stemming from its unsustainable bulk. Government corruption, ethnic groups seeking independence, and domestic unrest make it very unlikely China will subjugate Americans.

    And I’d add the greatest source of instability and economic distress is the Federal government.

  6. We have a few college students online from College of Norwich University and we love your blog postings, so well add your rss or news feed for them, Thanks and please post us and leave a comment back and well link to you. Thanks Jen , Blog Manager Southern Vermont College.

    I think secession would be the right way to go — but you’ll never “legislate” it. We’ve already seen how useless it is to politely ask the thugs in power to behave nicely. It will take a for-real revolution, not whining letters to your Congresspig, and at that point we’ll be establishing a new nation (and perhaps a new kind of nation) from scratch. As for all those worthless “federal dollars,” what do you value more — freedom or cash?

    We badly need a New American Revolution, or failing that, a strong and serious secessionist movement.
