Are We Being Watched By Uncle Sam’s Minions?

December 31, 2009

Those of us who write about the criminal acts of the US Federal Government are likely filling various dossiers in some government offices somewhere. Apparently, the Federal Government is becoming increasingly concerned about what American citizens are thinking, writing and doing.

Did you know that the Department of Homeland Security has an Office of the Undersecretary of Intelligence & Analysis? And, there is a Homeland Infrastructure Threat & Risk Analysis Center as a part of that Undersecretary’s Office? And that this office has an Extremism and Radicalization Branch?

See the DHS organizational chart at: DHS Organizational Chart

You will find this obscure bureaucracy on the EIGHTEENTH PAGE of the chart, bottom left. It kind of creeps me out that the Department of Homeland Security has to take 25 pages to show its organizational structure. And that doesn’t show all of the worker bees…only the white shirt and tie types.

In an even more eye-opening report directly from the DHS Office of Intelligence Analysis and Assessment, Extremism and Radicalization Branch, we find that they are already becoming alarmed by the activities of various US citizens.

Here is the link for this report: Rightwing Extremism Report

The report is dated 7 April 2009. On page 2 of 9, at the bottom of the page, is this note:

“Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely (Author’s emphasis).It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

That highlighted definition is pretty much inclusive of the authors and readers of LewRockwell.com, my blog, http://www.DumpDC.com, as well as hundreds of other bloggers on the Web.

The report also goes on to state that the Feds are also concerned with military personnel returning from the war. Specifically, they worry that (a) they won’t assimilate back into civilian culture well, and (b) they have combat training that would benefit militias.

The Feds are leery of militias. Why? Because militias resist tyranny.

This report stops short of making recommendations about what to do with their findings. But liberty loving people should read this report from front to back.

Ladies and gentlemen, the lines are being drawn. The more insanity that spills out from the Washington sewer onto Americans, the more that Americans are going to become “anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely.”

That does not bode well for Washington DC. However, it does bode very well for the cause of state secession and individual liberty.

In conclusion, I’m going to re-use a positive vision for the future I used in another article.

Try to envision yourself and your family in a new nation created by secession. All the people you meet are excited and breathless in their anticipation of the future. The general opinion of the populace is pure unbridled optimism. The new nation’s economy is booming, the money is backed by gold and silver, and there is no inflation. “Now Hiring” signs are in all the shop windows. The newspaper’s “Help Wanted” ads are packed full. Prices for goods and services are low, and the stores are loaded with goods. Manufacturers are streaming into the new nation to take advantage of the rare pro-business atmosphere. Wages are climbing steadily in manufacturing jobs as companies compete for the best and brightest to be their employees. New businesses are being created at a fever pace. Residential and commercial construction is at a high level to meet the demand of the new residents.

All because one state recognized this historic opportunity and chased the dream of liberty through the process of state secession.

Secession is the hope for humanity. Who will be first?

Spirit of ’76 Movie Review

December 31, 2009

Mike Church, the delightfully radical radio talk show host of The Mike Church Show, broadcast on Sirius Satellite Radio, has written, directed and produced the definitive visual primer on the writing and ratification of the United States Constitution.

The movie is entitled “The Spirit of ‘76 – Our Founding: The Greatest Story Ever Told.”


The movie is a documentary, deftly mixing animation, narration and human interaction into a compellingly woven story that rivets the viewer’s attention for 167 minutes.

The story is replete with subterfuge, power struggles, fiery rhetoric and gigantic egos. The reviewer was amazed to learn of crucial debates that were settled on the slimmest of majority votes.

The delegates arrived in Philadelphia to review the Articles of Confederation with a purpose of making revisions as necessary. At the end of the convention, an entirely new Constitution was written.

James Madison and Alexander Hamilton were the authors of the Virginia Plan, an early proposal which would have supplanted the states with a central national government. State sovereignty would have vanished under the new central government. The new national government would have enjoyed the ability to nullify any act or law of a state government. The Virginia Plan was rejected in favor of the Constitution of 1787.

The reason that the Federalist Papers were necessary to attempt to convince citizens was that the new constitution was a complete departure from the task assigned to the delegates sent to the Convention in Philadelphia. Further, the Articles of Confederation required no Bill of Rights. But, the new constitution was so alarming to so many of the delegates and citizens that a Bill of Rights was necessary to quell the alarm.

And, as we so well know, the Bill of Rights, along with the entire Constitution, is being entirely ignored by the lawmakers, executives and court denizens of Washington, DC. And state sovereignty is a dim memory.

So in the end…which is coming to pass in our own times…Madison and Hamilton were finally victorious.

Your children will likely never hear of this story in either a public or private school. And, unless you have purposed to study this obscure portion of history yourself, you will not have heard the story either. I strongly urge you to buy a copy of this film and watch it WITH YOUR CHILDREN. And make yourself a vow to watch it annually until your children are grown and gone from the nest.
