America’s Last Chance to Defeat Tyranny

Certainly the United States of America has been blessed to be an exceptional nation for more than two centuries. America has been further blessed for more than a century to be the greatest and most powerful nation on Earth. Our nation and its people, thanks be to God, has experienced eras of supreme accomplishments and astoundingly great moments.   For most of our history, in a world perpetually filled with evil, American has pushed forward countless times to confront, defeat and destroy evil.

Now, a preponderance of evidence clearly defines our nation’s current “state of the union” as an America battered and beaten for seven years, less reckoned to be “exceptional”. We are a nation being relentlessly pushed backward, being steadily confronted, defeated and destroyed by evil. President Barack Obama and his administration, with help from liberal allies in Congress and in our Federal Courts, have spent seven years tearing this nation apart. Certainly, America has known dark days in our past history, when evil threatened to destroy this nation. In those dark days of our past history, bold, courageous and righteous leaders asked for and were granted, God’s Grace, who in turn inspired, rallied and led America to confront, defeat and destroy evil.

In the darkest days of the Revolutionary War against English tyranny, General George Washington and his army steeled themselves against the savagely bitter cold winter at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in 1777-1778. In the middle of our Great and Tragic Civil War, on July 1, 1863, the two great armies of the North and South clashed at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania at a moment in time when the future of the United States of America as one nation was very much in doubt. Beginning with the infamous stock market crash of October, 1929, the United States of America and her people endured sixteen perilous years of incredible hardship and danger through the Great Depression (1929-41) and the Second World War (1941-45) After Pearl Harbor, a shocked and horrified America still reeling from a decade of the Great Depression, next faced the dark days of 1942, when worldwide military victory by the evil Axis Powers – Germany and Japan – seemed an all too likely possibility.

Through all these past dark and perilous days, our nation under God, through our great leaders and great efforts by our citizens of those generations, prevailed over evil. In our America of January, 2016, having endured seven long years of economic hardships, an emerging federal socialist dictatorship, erosion of the rule of law, separation of powers, our Bill of Rights, even our hallowed Constitution. With political and economic corruption on a terrifyingly grand scale, we stand in immediate danger of losing the American Republic to an evil fascist cabal of political globalists and multinational corporate mobsters. In these present dark and perilous days, are Americans and our leaders willing to muster the courage to turn the tide? Are we willing against lengthening odds, to strive, asking God’s help, to once more turn the tide, confronting, defeating and destroying the evil forces that, in this case, are those nefarious men and women holding office in our three branches of our Federal government?

America Flag PaineAfter the terrible Winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge, General George Washington continued steadfast leadership and, by late 1781, Colonial America had prevailed in the War for Independence from British Tyranny. After three horrific, bloody days of fighting at the Battle of Gettysburg, Lincoln’s Army prevailed and by the Spring of 1865 under Lincoln’s determined leadership, the United States of America was preserved as one nation. After reaching the depths of the Great Depression in 1933 and our people persevering for eight more years only to find ourselves in the Second World War with an uncertain outcome, the American people and their leaders, foremost among them President Franklin Roosevelt, prevailed against the temptations of despair to muster courage and determination to defeat and destroy a worldwide axis of fascist evil. Each of these formidable challenges wrought very dark days for our nation, but we prevailed. With our nation “against the ropes” and brutalized for seven years by Obama and his fascist thugs, is this our darkest hour? Will we fail, or will we prevail?

It is glaringly apparent that the choice of good vs. evil at this dark and perilous hour is up to our nation’s people and to our state and local elected and appointed officials. The past year, 2015, despite their campaign promises and Republicans in control of both houses of Congress, they utterly failed to take any serious steps to stop President Obama’s madness.   With his treasonous disregard for the Constitution as well as “we the people”, President Obama has stepped up the pace of executive branch lawlessness, promising more unilateral executive orders and gross abuses of power than ever before. Clearly Mr. Obama has adopted a “scorched earth” policy of doing as much additional damage to American and her people as possible while still in office one final year. Clearly Mr. Obama is preparing through unlawful executive action to restrict free speech, freedom of association, the right to bear arms, freedom of religion and numerous other unilateral and unlawful executive actions to restrict the liberties of Americans at home and undermine our security from threats overseas.

Not only has both Congress and the Federal Courts dismally failed to stop Obama’s attacks on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but utterly failed to stop Obama’s abuse of power and unconstitutional actions on multiple fronts. Obama bypassed the feckless U.S. Senate to unilaterally implement the disastrous Iran treaty, the ill-advised multinational trade agreement with Asian nations, in actions blocking energy production from oil, coal and gas, and in perhaps his most blatant abuse of power, outside his executive authority, bypassing this same feckless Congress to protect millions of illegal aliens. Now Obama has begun the year 2016 by announcing plans for yet more illegal executive actions and abuses of power to enact gun control laws and restrict other freedoms by “Presidential Fiat”.   We learned yesterday this action protecting illegals is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court. Given the High Court’s recent record dealing with challenges to Obamacare and “gay marriage” there is considerable danger of a 5-4 vote at SCOTUS to “legitimatize” Obama’s power grab regarding illegal alien amnesty.

The “clear and present danger” bringing our nation to the brink of our “darkest hour”, is the tripartite face of tyranny in Washington, D.C. that has no precedent in American History; all three federal branches – executive, legislative and judicial – no longer represent the will or the interests of decent, law-abiding American citizens and are taking unlawful, unconstitutional action day after day, against each of us, and replacing American freedom with Fascist tyranny.

tyranny1The only path open to patriotic Americans to resist this tripartite tyranny in Washington, D.C. is direct action by state and local governments, by both elected and appointed officials, to invoke the Tenth Amendment and Nullification. We must call upon every state governor, attorneys general, state legislatures, county judges and commissioners, mayors, city managers, city councils, County Sheriffs, Police Chiefs and their deputies, boards of education in public schools, all across America, to declare “Constitutional war” on all three treasonous branches of our federal government.

Individuals and groups of citizens who believe in Constitutional government as well as in saving this nation, may be highly effective through massive actions of civil disobedience, but past experience and present conditions assure these actions, however effective or meritorious, are not enough. Such massive civil action must be accompanied by a nationwide “stand-up and stand-tall” movement for Constitutional liberty by local and state officials from the county level to the halls of state legislatures, all the way to the governor’s mansions.

State Governors must meet and agree to resist; state legislatures, county commissions and school boards must do the same. All must not only resist, but must legislate, sue in court, issue executive orders from the offices of the governor, the attorney general, the state legislative speakers, county judges, Sheriffs, Police Chiefs, one and all, “E Pluribus Unum”, in nationwide mass resistance.

“Divine Rights” belong not to the President, Congress and the Federal Courts, but to God alone. As Jefferson wrote 240 years ago, “…whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends (life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, government by consent of the governed ) it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, instituting (a) new government…”

Unless we act, and do so immediately, our darkest hour has truly come upon us, and the dark and nefarious fog of the evildoers in Washington, D.C. is rolling in with a vengeance to consume us all.

Let us, as a people, act again forthwith, under great and firm determination, to reform these United States of America, as One Nation Under God. It is for us the hour of decision, the hour to act. America’s last chance to defeat tyranny and evil, and return ourselves to freedom and liberty, is now. But first and foremost, let us one and all pray to our Creator for His help, wisdom and courage in this perilous yet clearly noble, endeavor.
