Teaching the U. S. Constitution in the schools? They still do, it’s a wonder Obama hasn’t tried to eliminate the teaching. He probably hasn’t figured away to swing that just yet.
Here we have a president, that has no respect for the Constitution, has acted against it with defiance; would just as soon burn every page. The leader of the U.S., the one individual you expect to abide by, follow and respect the Constitution, shows nothing but disdain. He supposedly taught it? I would like to have heard those class lectures.
We should all re-read it, study it……..what have we forgotten? How much of it would we ask, “Does this apply anymore?” The First Amendment?
It is becoming a book of fiction, a fairy tale. We have done this, by allowing the Obama’s’, Hillary Clinton’s’ and most of Congress run wild and held unaccountable.
We are becoming unrecognizable, to even ourselves. Our Children don’t know the difference………do they?
I recently read a post, that I immediately took issue with. I did not save the author’s name, nor did I save the post. No particular reason I did not, other than I didn’t decide to make a statement until now.
The post was a statement against the 2nd Amendment; not one entirely against it, but still one that infringed. Here paraphrased: “The 2nd Amendment was meant only for militias to have or own guns.”
George Washington, in the quote shown above made no mention of an organized militia. Even if he had, before and after the 2nd Amendment was written and accepted into OUR CONSTITUTION, militias are not our regular army, they are armed citizens, able-bodied to defend our nation in time of emergency. The citizens came from the farms and communities then, and they would come from the farms and communities today! The government is not going to arm citizens, except in the military branches. They are not going to arm militias. They would never arm citizens against itself, the government. The government knows the purpose fully well of an armed militia made up of citizens in this the United States.
The 2nd Amendment protects our right to defend our independence. The only purpose for a government, our own government, to remove this Amendment is to take away our independence.
Secrecy from the government causes speculation and assumption, often inaccurate, often not, as what is perceived to be often is how it is seen. A little honesty and transparency on behalf of our leaders would go a long way. Transparency, a word often used but seldom practiced with government.
TPP: Unconstitutional tribunal for .01% oligarchs to dictate what is ‘fair trade’

Or, go to http://archive.org/web/, paste the expired link into the box, click “Browse history,” then click onto the screenshots of that page for each time it was screen-shot and uploaded to webarchive. I’ll update as “hobby time” allows; including my earliest work from 2009 to 2011 (blocked author pages: here, here). “The corporations have bribed the political leaders in every country to sign away their sovereignty and the general welfare of their people to private corporations. Corporations have paid US senators large sums for transferring Congress’ law-making powers to corporations.” – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary to US Treasury, former editor of the Wall Street Journal Trans-Pacific-Partnership (TPP) is “secret national security legislation” that President Obama and both parties’ “leaderships” refuse to disclose to the American public, and only visible from WikiLeaks. President Obama attempted “fast track” dictatorial power for Congress to vote for TPP without access to full text or public consideration. “Fast track” violates the US Constitution’s requirement for the Senate to ratify all treaties with 2/3 vote by claiming that 50% is somehow the same (a tie is broken by the VP, so 50% is enough). President Clinton’s justification of “fast track” is here. TPP is Emperor’s New Clothes’ unconstitutional because it allows a foreign three-person tribunal chosen by the same .01% oligarch powers that created TPP to have power to tax Americans billions of our dollars for claimed “damages” of corporations. These three persons appointed by TPP interests would have dictatorial power to protect corporate claimed “future profits.” From Ellen Brown:
“To date, the highest ISDS award has been for $2.3 billion to Occidental Oil Company against the government of Ecuador over its termination of an oil-concession contract, this although the termination was apparently legal. Still in arbitration is a demand by Vattenfall, a Swedish utility that operates two nuclear plants in Germany, for compensation of €3.7 billion ($4.7 billion) under the ISDS clause of a treaty on energy investments, after the German government decided to shut down its nuclear power industry following the Fukushima disaster in Japan in 2011.”
President Obama led the lies of commission and omission for TPP: “If we don’t write the rules, China will.” Obama’s actions reminds of Bush Jr.’s Senior Advisor, Karl Rove’s admission:
“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out.”
Readers and writers in alternative media can explain, document, and prove that much of these “created realities” like TPP are “Big Lie” crimes, objectively not even close to the foundational principle of “limited government” within the US Constitution, and “created” with whatever bullshit rhetoric their focus groups conclude most likely to sell (thank you, Professor Frankfurt, for your bestseller making BS an academic term). Readers and writers in alternative media observe escalating US and developed nations’ “created reality” crimes in ~100 areas, but perhaps most easily recognized in:
Good news is that solutions are obvious; the challenge for Earth’s victory over these literalpsychopathic “leaders” is to cause critical mass of humanity to recognize “Emperor’s new clothes”obvious crimes, demand arrests, and split the ~95% of humanity who would choose love and justice from relatively few committed psychopathic wanna-be slave masters. Great news is that readers and writers in alternative media are certainly free to “study what the psychopaths do,” their crime du jour, AND we are also free to take the endgame path to:
- Declaring our study over; we’ve seen more than enough.
- Command the facts over a few key areas of the “Big Lie” crimes (feel free to take the three I have above).
- Confidently demand arrests and/or Truth & Reconciliation.
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, . . . may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny. . . . Were the power of judging joined with the legislative, the life and liberty of the subject would be exposed to arbitrary control, for the judge would then be the legislator.” – James Madison, Federalist Paper # 47 Note: I make all factual assertions as a National Board Certified Teacher of US Government, Economics, and History, with all economics factual claims receiving zero refutation since I began writing in 2008 among Advanced Placement Macroeconomics teachers on our discussion board, public audiences of these articles, and international conferences.

This is another link regarding the U.S. as a corporation, being changed from a constitutional republic to a corporation. If this is true, then the constitution means nothing, and the president can pretty much do as he wishes, which explains Obama. Congress would be a board…….our votes really mean nothing. The corporation is a foreign entity. Illuminati?
IS THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT A CORPORATION?
IF TRUE, SO WHAT?
© 2007 by G. Edward Griffin. Revised 2007 December 17.
A common assertion made by those who are unhappy with the declining state of freedom in America is that this can be traced to an 1871 act of Congress that established Washington DC and, at the same time, converted the United States from a constitutional republic to a corporation. Secondary claims attached to this hypothesis are that this is the reason the official wording was changed from Constitutionfor The United States of America to Constitution of The United States of America and also why all capital letters are used in the name instead of upper and lower case letters. They claim that this Act of 1871 abolished the original constitutional government and created a legal fiction that became financially indebted to and controlled by international bankers. A forceful example of this view can be found on the Internet at www.serendipity.li/jsmill/us_corporation.htm.
A CHARTER FOR CITY GOVERNMENT
My own analysis is different. While it is true that Washington DC was created by the Act of 1871, its territory was limited to the District of Columbia and it was defined as a municipal corporation, which means it was limited to the affairs of city government. Three years later, on June 20, 1874, a new Act was passed by Congress that abolished the original city government and replaced it with a three-man commission, appointed by the President with the consent of the Senate. Its scope as a municipality did not change. A third Act of Congress, dated June 11, 1878, clarified the powers of the Commission but retained all the essential features of the previous Act, especially those that defined the nature of the District of Columbia as a municipal administrative unit. The following overview, taken from a Supreme Court decision (District of Columbia v. Camden Iron Works, 181 U.S. 453 (1901) 181 U.S. 453) describes this evolution:
The 1st section of the act ‘to provide a government for the District of Columbia,’ approved February 21, 1871 (16 Stat. at L. [181 U.S. 453, 458] 419, chap. 62), provided: ‘That all that part of the territory of the United States included within the limits of the District of Columbia be, and the same is hereby, created into a government by the name of the District of Columbia by which name it is hereby constituted a body corporate for municipal purposes, and may contract and be contracted with, sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, have a seal, and exercise all other powers of a municipal corporation not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the provisions of this act.’
A governor and legislature were created; also a board of public works, to which was given the control and repair of the streets, avenues, alleys, and sewers of the city of Washington, and all other works which might be intrusted to their charge by either the legislative assembly or Congress. They were empowered to disburse the moneys received for the improvement of streets, avenues, alleys, sewers, roads, and bridges, and to assess upon adjoining property specially benefited thereby a reasonable proportion of the cost, not exceeding one third.
June 20, 1874, an act was passed entitled ‘An Act for the Government of the District of Columbia, and for Other Purposes.’ 18 Stat. at L. 116, chap. 337. By this act the government established by the act of 1871 was abolished and the President by and with the advice and consent of the Senate was authorized to appoint a commission, consisting of three persons, to exercise the power and authority vested in the governor and the board of public works, except as afterwards limited by the act.
By a subsequent act approved June 11, 1878 (20 Stat. at L. 102, chap. 180), it was enacted that the District of Columbia should ‘remain and continue a municipal corporation,’ as provided in 2 of the Revised Statutes relating to said District (brought forward from the act of 1871), and the appointment of commissioners was provided for, to have and to exercise similar powers given to the commissioners appointed under the act of 1874.
Obama won’t get our guns, despite the fact he will ignore the Constitution of the U.S. and attempt to confiscate them. We the People are more than willing to take on a final line of defense against our enemies to include an incompetent non-working corrupt government.
DEAR RADICAL ISLAMISTS, YOUR DADDY, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA CAN’T PROTECT YOU HERE!!
