THE FREEDOM FIGHTER, July 4, 2016.
The unanimous Declaration of the fifty united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these States; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the New World Order is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over the earth. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
His Congress has passed unconstitutional Laws.
He has passed other Laws for the financial accommodation of large districts of people at the expense of the taxpayers, causing those people to relinquish their Constitutional Rights, Rights inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has declared legislative bodies to be in recess and made appointments in order to circumvent congressional vetting for his candidates, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has taken office of a foreign government, in violation of Article I, Section 9, Clause 8, the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. He has passed Laws that will allow him to kill Americans for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has endeavoured to conquer the population of these States; for that purpose ignoring and corrupting the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; encouraging illegal migrations hither.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by allowing Loretta Lynch to ignore his malfeasance.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For abolishing the free System of the United States Constitution, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into this country:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us. In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our New World Order brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their stealth to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them that we are not their chattel. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
Therefore, We, the People of the united States of America, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these States, solemnly publish and declare, That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the New World Order, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, the Rothschild family, and the New World Order is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

How much are these women worth to you? How much should one get paid to wear a skimpy costume, yell chants and prance around? Do we need to get the law involved in this?
California assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez thinks so. She introduced a bill in California that, if it becomes law, will force the NFL to treat its California cheerleaders as employees and pay them at least minimum wage.
Isn’t the minimum wage $0?
Aren’t we all big boys and girls here? Why must the State be involved in every minutiae of our lives? I guess because someone wasn’t a big girl and sued the NFL for not paying her enough money for looking pretty and shaking what her momma gave her; so, here comes Lorena Gonzalez to the rescue!
According to Gonzalez, the NFL is just a bunch of wife-beating, male chauvinist pigs who don’t even pay their female sex-objects minimum wage, and the omnipotent, benevolent, god-on-earth/Government needs to do something about it.
I wonder why she cares so much?
How much is cheerleading worth? If you go to football games, and you pay $150, $300, $500, even $2000 for each ticket; are you paying that money to see professional football players or cheerleaders?
It’s a pretty basic concept in business that a person earns what she is worth. Maybe a cheerleader is worth more than less than minimum wage, but until recently the NFL was just a poor little non-profit charity organization and probably couldn’t afford to pay the cheerleaders much.
We get paid what we’re worth, and if you don’t feel like you are; you are free to ask for a raise. If you don’t get it; you are free to quit and work somewhere else for people who will appreciate your skills, experience and talent and will compensate you better. This is a free country. I have all the licenses and permits to prove it. A woman could even start her own business, exploit her customers and employees and keep all the money to herself.
What kind of person makes an agreement with someone then sues because she doesn’t like the agreement that she made?
No one forces anyone to be a cheerleader. Every one of them asked someone else for the job. That person told her the job duties and how much she would be paid. She agreed to it, they shook hands and she became a cheerleader. The San-Diego Union Tribune says some teams classify them as volunteers. Volunteers get paid less than minimum wage. Would it be right to volunteer to work at the homeless shelter then after finding out that some actual hard work is involved, sue them for not paying you enough? My supposition would be that these women have jobs that pay the bills and cheerlead for a hobby. I would posit that these women have husbands who make enough money for her to devote the time and energy needed to be a cheerleader without becoming destitute.
You don’t sue for not being paid enough to cheerlead. You don’t write a law to mandate minimum pay for cheerleading. No one can eat, drive, wear or take shelter in cheerleading. If I get sick or injured; cheerleading will not heal me. I’ve never even seen or heard of the cheerleading squad causing a game to be won or lost. Cheerleading is not worth much. If one wants to do it; one must pay for it.
Priorities are really out of whack. Too much care is given to panty-flashing women and ball-chasing men. Our Government is charging foreigners with corruption. They say some people in FIFA are corrupt for taking bribes. If you want FIFA to advertise the World Cup on your media outlet; bribe money helps them in their decision to pick you over someone else.
I’m totally shocked and outraged! I just can’t believe that you would have to actually pay someone to use their extremely valuable property so you can make money from it too, and that is corrupt. What’s next; sue water for getting people wet, indict dogs for barking?
Show me one family put out on the streets, one starving child, one entrepreneur who lost his business because of FIFA corruption or cheerleaders not getting paid enough. Show me one veteran on a wait/death list, one family whose health insurance rates have skyrocketed, one child, elderly or disabled person severely beaten or killed by cops because of FIFA corruption or cheerleaders not getting paid enough, show me one dead body, and maybe then I’ll care.
It was as good as sliced bread three years ago.
Now they don’t like it so much.
President Obama has banned the sale of some kinds of military equipment to local law enforcement agencies, following widespread criticism of a paramilitary-like response to riots in a St. Louis suburb last August.
“We’ve seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people a feeling like they’re an occupying force, as opposed to a force that’s part of the community that’s protecting them and serving them,” Obama said in a speech in Camden, N.J. Monday. He said military equipment can “alienate and intimidate local residents and may send the wrong message.” – USA Today
The local police departments, after three decades of being given military equipment, have tanks, MRAPS, M-16’s, grenade launchers, night vision goggles, drones… About the only things they don’t have are aircraft carriers with F-16’s.
So all is well now because Obama is going to take back all that military surplus stuff. The cops may now only have an empty revolver and Obama will keep the bullets in his desk until they need them.
Wait a minute. Don’t celebrate just yet…
Banned will be tracked armored vehicles, bayonets, grenade launchers, camouflage uniforms, and large-caliber weapons and ammunition.
“So we’re going to prohibit some equipment made for the battlefield that is not appropriate for local police departments,” Obama said. “There’s other equipment that may be needed in certain cases, but only with proper training.”
That equipment will be placed on a “controlled equipment list” that includes aircraft, wheeled tactical vehicles, mobile command-and-control units, battering rams and riot gear. – USA Today
OK, so the armored vehicles can’t have tracks because they’ll damage the roads, and that would make it more difficult for them to transport political dissenters to the joy camps. As for the bayonets, grenade launchers and large caliber weapons; they already have those. Remember; the police have been receiving military surplus since the 1990’s. And, the camouflage uniforms? They don’t need them. Who are the cops trying to hide from?
So, tanks are just fine if they have wheels instead of tracks, head and tail lights and rear view mirrors and you call it a personnel carrier, or a wheeled tactical vehicle. Aircraft are OK, so maybe they will get some F-16’s and Apache helicopters, because they need some way to fly over and bomb us.
But, the best part is…
That equipment will be placed on a “controlled equipment list”… To have access to that equipment, police departments must meet national policing standards, track their use and receive approval from the federal government before selling or transferring them.
Obama highlighted a wide range of administration initiatives to fight crime, improve police-community relations and improve transparency in policing. They include a White House data initiative to encourage local police departments to release more information about arrests and uses of force by police; guidelines for police use of body-worn cameras; and federal grants to help implement community policing strategies. – USA Today
The cops will have to meet Obama’s standards to have any “controlled equipment”. Remember this?
The police had to borrow high powered rifles from a gun shop (“controlled equipment”). Now imagine if the shopkeeper had to ask them if the department meets Bill Clinton’s national policing standards and received federal approval.
I don’t like them being militarized, but I also don’t like them being required to meet national standards for anything. They are not national or federal police. They are local police, and they need to only meet local standards. What’s next; international standards?
The second amendment says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A cop is just a man in a costume. If cops are people whose right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, why is the government infringing that right? I can understand Obama saying that he won’t give them the equipment, but he’s acting like a mafia boss saying they can’t got to the gun shop or army surplus store and buy whatever their community wants them to have. So, who’s next? Will they next be telling us that we need to meet national or international standards to own “controlled equipment”?
Obama has many great ideas on crime-fighting, improving police-community relations and improving transparency in policing. He’s going to make all the cops wear body cameras. He’s going to make them enter all their data into federal databases. He’s going to implement his national community policing strategies, and he’s going to let the federal government pay for it all.
He who pays the piper, picks the tune.
Is the tune going to be Amerikka, Über Alles?
A friend of mine handed another friend an envelope last night. He told her he mailed it to a mutual acquaintance of theirs, but he got the address wrong and it came back to him. “Since you see her all the time; would you deliver it?”, he asked.
I had to tell them that no, she can’t deliver it because it is illegal for normal people to deliver mail. That can only be done by the United States Postal Service. Private Express Statutes give the Government a monopoly on mail delivery services.
The USPS doesn’t operate like a for-profit business. It loses billions of dollars. It constantly raises its rates, but still loses money. To go from red to black, the Postmaster General is considering offering check-cashing, pre-paid cards and loans. I would think it doesn’t make sense for an organization notorious for losing billions of dollars to offer financial services, but even with their illicit drug and sex-slave money-laundering services; the big banks lose billions of dollars.
The USPS prohibits us from competing against them, but wants to offer products and services already provided by private businesses. The USPS and the big banks fail and both get bailed out by We the People. Well… you may offer private mail delivery services, but only if the USPS gets it vigorish. That means you’d have to charge more than they would for the same service. I’m sure there are a few people out there who have an idea of how to do what the USPS does cheaper and more efficiently, but if they were required to charge more than the USPS; then it would negate the whole point of offering an alternative and that business would likely fail. Unfortunately that business wouldn’t be eligible for taxpayer bailouts.
Lysander Spooner owned the American Letter Mail Company.
In 1844 the Government may have acknowledged that Lysander Spooner built that, but they told him he couldn’t have it. He spent all his money fighting them and closed the business.
In addition to being an entrepreneur, Lysander Spooner was an abolitionist and author. I don’t know if he called himself an Anarchist, but I can surmise from his writings that he believed that Government was illegitimate.
If my plumber gives me advice on how to fix my car, I follow that advice, and my car blows up; I would still take his advice on my plumbing issues. I wouldn’t listen to anything he has to say about fixing my computer but I would still let him adjust my water pressure or empty my septic tank.
I don’t feel that way about the Government.
If I saw my pastor doing drugs, or gambling, or stealing; I wouldn’t listen to anything he had to say about anything.
The New York Times lost all credibility with me in 2003 during the Jason Blair scandal. I know many people continued to read and believe the paper, but what happened? More scandals. It’s been discovered that one can pay to placed on the Best Sellers List. The New York Times has been caught paying crisis actors to pretend to be afflicted with Ebola. People are shocked at these recent controversies with the New York Times, but not I. They showed me what they were 11 years ago.
That’s how I feel about the Government. I think Lysander Spooner did too.
I understand that it is a logical fallacy to assume that being wrong on one thing makes one wrong on everything, but I believe I’m right in this case.
Lysander Spooner could have owned and treated like dogs as many human beings as he wanted as long as they were Black and not White. Owning men, women and children and breeding them like livestock was legal, but delivering pieces of paper with scriptures scratched onto them, enclosed inside another piece of paper was illegal.
There is a difference between unlawful and illegal. Something that is unlawful is against the law. Something that is illegal is against the codes or statutes. The law comes from God or Common Law for the unbelievers. This is the legitimate law. The law says it is wrong to steal property or murder. Codes and statutes are written by Authoritarian control-freak Statists who want to rule over us. The codes and statutes say things like: it is illegal to walk on the grass, or stores may not sell 20 ounce big gulps. Certain interests pay legislators to write codes and statutes that benefit them and suppress their competition. Codes and Statutes told Lysander Spooner it was okay for him to buy and sell slaves but not deliver mail. Codes and Statutes tell us we may murder children via abortion, but if drive away from the abortuary and change lanes without signaling; a cop will pull you over and ask if you have any drugs that the CIA imported. If you don’t allow him to search your vehicle; he will drag you out and beat you.
When the Government tells you abortion is legal; should you give it assent on any other subject?
Dear State of ConnecticutoutthesecondamendmentfromtheConstitution,
I am returning your letter because your ban of guns and arms registry violates my Human/Civil Rights and the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
As a result, you have the following options of what to do with your letter:
1. Render it inoperable by burning it in a metal trash can.
2. Forward it to some random slave who lives in a communist country.
3. You may make arrangements for me to come over, crumple the letter, and shove it up your arse.
You have the following options for dealing with my weapons and magazines:
1. Don’t worry about them unless you plan on turning Connecticut or the United States into a communist, tyrannical, totalitarian state.
2. You may make arrangements for me to come over and shove the barrel of my gun up your arse.
Sincerely, Jim White
United States of America
