Everything belongs to the people

By Henry Kroll

The land, the trees, the water and the minerals all belong to the people. They don’t belong to the government. The government has stolen these things from the people and sold them to corporations. The courts and state legislators give corporations more rights than living, breathing human beings. The laws are written to protect the corporations.
The corporations need workers, so 350,000 people were brought to Alaska to work for the corporations. Anybody worth a damn already had a job in their home state, so Alaska wound up with a lot of chronically unemployed and unemployable people living on welfare. The corporations harvest the resources so they can make lots of money. When the resources are gone, they leave Alaska, and leave a big mess behind.
Some of them run for the legislature, enacting hundreds of laws each year similar to the laws they have in their home state. After 20 years of this, we have 10,000 more laws. Then they discover they don’t like it here anymore because there are so many laws. It’s worse than where they came from, so they go back to the hell hole they came out of. This is the mess we have now. The schools are concentration camps to teach children to bow to authority.
Will they shoot us?
This may not be a foolish question, considering what is and has happened in this supposed-to-be republic since Barack Obama took office. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence 238 years ago, that to “secure certain unalienable rights” — among them, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — “governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; (and) 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.”
We, the “governed,” haven’t consented to any of the millions of rules, regulations, or executive orders that have been issued out of that den of iniquity called Washington D.C. — and its environs. We also fear the D.C. crowd, and can only imagine what they may have in store for us in the future. Now, a part of Maryland wants to secede, as does part of Colorado. And Texas is getting pretty serious about secession.
In nine months, we the people hope to correct the grievous faults of the democrats and Obama’s trampling of our sacred Constitution by voting the rascals out. We need to take control of the U.S. Senate and hold the House of Representatives. We are impatient for Obama’s second term to end. In the meantime, certain events are so unexplainable and intolerable, I wonder if, under bureaucratic instructions, U.S. troops would fire on their own brothers and fellow citizens?
Consider this: Certain unconstitutional bureaucracies, such as the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA, have bought, with funds unauthorized by Congress, millions — most likely hundreds of millions — of rounds of ammunition and firearms of various sizes. There have been no explanations of such acquisition, nor any possible use for such arms and ammunition, other than for use against American citizens. Many Americans are understandably fearful of President Obama declaring a unconstitutional “State of Emergency,” or declaring “Marshal Law.”
The president has publicly declared that he will have his way, even without the consent of Congress, by use of unconstitutional executive orders, which he has used hundreds of times already.
So-called “Obamacare” passed without a single vote from the republican party, and was signed into law. This, despite dire warnings of its overwhelmingly horrid results, in the form of lost medical care and huge costs to the citizenry. Such warnings have come completely true. President Obama, in a futile effort to gloss over the law’s obvious glaring catastrophic faults, has illegally and unconstitutionally legislated and changed statutory law by use of executive order.
Such actions have finally become so outrageous, a few republicans of the “Tea Party” variety, are going to take the matter to court. It’s about time.
My worry about troops firing on their fellow citizens on instructions of a power-mad bureaucracy or presidential order is not unfounded. Abraham Lincoln began the war between the states by allowing a fort on a South Carolina island be re-supplied, after a strong, unmistakable warning.
Lincoln had been warned repeatedly by his top military commander, General Winfield Scott, and most of his cabinet, to abandon Fort Sumter. One of many quotes of Lincoln might well dissolve the notion of getting rid of slavery as an excuse for that terrible war.
“I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in states where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”
Some 610,000 Americans died in that tragic war, fought over states’ rights, as enumerated in the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. Slavery had nothing to do with it, as modern-day apologists mouth. Lincoln’s invasion of the South was supposed to “save the union,” but the “union” broke apart the day Lincoln was elected as the first republican president.
The South knew his goal was to destroy — once and for all — the doctrines of Federalism and states’ rights, that had, since the beginning, frustrated ambitious politicians like himself; politicians who wanted a highly centralized and greatly enlarged state, a la Alexander Hamilton, FDR, LBJ and now Obama. The president uses every power he can command to see to it that it happens. After the defeat of the South, Lincoln’s henchman, Sherman, in his march through the South, murdered, burned and destroyed everything in his notorious path, with no rhyme or reason. An American general killing fellow citizens, and the war was over.
It has happened throughout history. Stalin, Hitler, Chairman Mao and other human animals have ordered murder of their citizenry by gunshot, starvation, or imprisonment. America went to war foolishly, with no Constitutional declaration, at the behest of George Bush, LBJ and Harry Truman. Close to 150,000 American soldiers lost their lives due to those acts of irrational and inhuman overseas wars.
Will executions of American citizens be ordered at a command of a president or bureaucrat for nonexistent, fallacious reasons? Will politicians follow absurd, murderous “false-flag” situations, propagated by foolish officials or a president who has no legitimate credentials to even be a holder of that office?
Will the American military or National Guard be ordered to shoot their fellow citizens for some imagined wrongdoing?
It really scares me. I am convinced that the quarter -billion firearms held by American citizens scare those who would gain total control of our lives, businesses, jobs and private property. Our quarter-billion guns protect us from criminals, murderers, robbers and — if necessary — oppressive government. Thanks to the Second Amendment, Americans are armed. The Brits and Aussies have had their guns confiscated, and crime has tripled in some cases. The first thing Hitler did upon coming to power was to confiscate all guns, “for safety’s sake.”
We were in England a couple years ago, and I took out my Swiss pocket knife to clean my nails or something. The bus driver almost fainted when he saw it. He said I could go to jail for a year if police saw me with it. That’s how far toward totalitarianism these supposedly free nations have come. America is still the best place to be.

    We need to go back in history a little to see what has happened.

    It seems that many people were asleep when the Bush Administration passed the Patriot Act, got caught illegally spying then used Congress to attempt to make it legal retroactively.

    It turns out the spying was not on ‘terrorists’ but on peace activists and others who might interfere with their agenda.

    Snowden has now told us that yes, the NSA has hired spooks to infiltrate the net and disrupt our conversations and feed us propaganda. These infiltrators are the ones who repeat the same talking points, shout down others with insults, become moderators on websites and have important stories removed. This snowden revelation from last week was completely buried by the ‘liberal’ media and most websites had infiltrators removing the story as quickly as possible. Did you hear this on Glenn Beck?

    This control and surveillance been going on well in advance of the war in Iraq, even before 9/11.

    NSA Domestic Surveillance Began 7 Months Before 9/11
    http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2007/10/nsa-asked-for-p/

    Millions of people marched before the illegal war in Iraq, because we saw the evidence Bush was using was trumped up, with the Niger evidence coming out as a forgery that wasn’t even done with the proper names or letterhead.

    Where was the liberal media on that? Hint, there is no liberal media.

    These corporations buying our government that you are talking about, also took over the media. The media is not liberal, I could find a thousand stories they leave out to prove it to you.

    Did you see the 40,000 marching against the Keystone pipeline at the White House? Hundreds arrested for peacefully protesting while the ‘liberal’ media just kept on complaining about Russia not allowing Ukraine to peacefully protest.

    Look at the media in Alaska. Parnell has been wasting our state money in just outrageous ways, and no one covers it. The Anchorage Daily News is bought off by oil companies and the Koch Brothers.

    Parnell gave one million dollars to the Homer Prevention Project so the director could take a salary larger than the governors for running ads in the paper. Where is the local paper on this? Local homer papers have been running feel good stories while researching nothing. This is why the city council has been getting away with looting the city.

    You got the corporations have taken over issue right, but you have to go back further.

    The two wars that were started while giving two tax cuts….that is what happened to the economy, that is why we are in so much debt. Bush was handed a surplus and he squandered it giving it to his base ‘the haves and the have mores’.

    Cheney was CEO of halliburton, gave himself no bid contracts- this is called war profiteering and this is what both of those wars are about.

    The free trade agreements were another huge hit to the economy as they allowed jobs to be sent overseas for no taxes, slave labor wages and no environmental regulations. Obama is attempting to pass a new free trade agreement TPP in secrecy.

    So now we have millions out of work, needing government help, government is in debt due to starting two wars while giving two tax cuts…so who do they blame? Poor people, people on food stamps, disabled people, disabled veterans. It is sick and twisted.

    We actually have people who call themselves Christians out blaming and bashing the least among us, while the government looters laugh their arses off. People need to stop and take a look at themselves. Look at what Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have done to so many people’s hearts, and for what? To protect liars and looters?

    The amount of money spent helping people is a tiny percentage of spending in this country.

    What is happening is that we have not one corrupt president, but a history of corrupt presidents. Our entire Congress, both houses, both parties…are corrupt. They are playing us for fools with a good cop bad cop routine. They have us arguing about really stupid personal issues while they continue to loot the country and blame us for what they have done.

    The NSA has infiltrated the net for the purpose of keeping important news off the radar, and guiding the conversations so that we are always angry at each other instead of the perpetrators.
    Disrupt, Degrade, Deceive : Western Agents Taught to Infiltrate Internet and Destroy Reputations

    The government is thriving by dividing and conquering and making people live in fear.

    Fear makes it hard to see logic, and solutions.

    The solution would be to shut off the TV, shut off the radio…do you really think Limbaugh is on every station because he fights for the little people? Clear Channel has been buying up all radio stations and forcing everyone to listen to limbaugh and glenn beck because they make money looking out for the little guy?

    They want us to fear each other. They make up issues that are emotionally charged to get us fighting.

    There are many issues Democrats and Republican could be uniting over, end the patriot act, cancel the NSA, prosecute the criminal bannkers, cancel NAFTA/WTO and no more free trade agreements, how about we get the insurance companies out of health care altogether, get the TSA out of the airport!! etc.

    But instead all ‘liberals’ supposedly care about is gay marriage and all Republicans care about is Bengazi. It is stupid and it is all by design.

    I don’t know if Obama is coming for your guns, but I do know they want you to think that. They want us all living in paranoid fear lashing out at each other while they laugh their arses off.

    We need to wise up to the dog and pony show, start finding the truth for ourselves, not through approved talking heads, and working together to fix the corruption.

    If you want to win elections and the next presidency….Eisenhower.

    As a liberal who is already being force fed Hillary for pres, please, for all of our sakes choose a rational Republican. The people currently leading your party are pushing people to defend Obama, even though he has broken every campaign promise and continued every horrible Bush policy.

    Bush doubled the military budget for instance, the wars supposedly winding down, military budget has stayed the same. Troops are being cut, but more money for drones and spying. No one wants this.

    We need a new Eisenhower. Someone who has been to war and understands it is about killing and maiming people, destroying lives. And that giving to the war machine takes away from everything else.

    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.”

    Eisenhower had income taxes high on the super wealthy to pay down the debt incurred from WWII. Ike felt it irresponsible to leave the war debt for future generations to pay. What is up with today’s leaders? When the debt was paid, JFK was then able to lower taxes again.

    Eisenhower warned us of exactly what is happening today with the military industrial complex.

    Many republicans are clamoring for a new Reagan, but Reagan is the one who began the myth of the ‘welfare queen’ taking all your money, a cover for the money being wasted on covert operations.

    Reagan’s economic idea to give to the rich and it will trickle down…is not a winner among anyone who sees just who has been tricked on and with what.

    Pope Francis puts it best “Trickle Down theories express a crude and naive trust of those welding economic power”

    If Republicans want to win the next election, gives us an Eisenhower.
