FIRST OF ALL, OUTSTANDING OP ZINDO. STAR, FLAG AND A DIGG!!



This was 1939 and not one word regarding the National Guard. Are they considered a "Standing Army". I think so as a US Army veteran. There are 25,000,000 vets out here. We may be getting old, slow, grey, need glasses, can't run too far and can't do chin-up's. But we have not forgotten our training and I can still headshot someone with my Glock 27 at 50 yards. Put a scope on something, and you're mine. These veterans may become leaders and the core of any resistance movement. It will give any Federal usurpers a whole lot to think about.

The Powers That Be would just love all American citizens to regard the National Guard as the militia, but as can be read from the above US Supreme Court Ruling, this is not so. It is to be made up of the common citizens, properly trained, supplying their own weapons of the kind in current use.


[edit on 14-2-2009 by Oldnslo]


I know you are right to some extents. But here is the catch in the idea of the national guard being the state 'militias'. They are NOT a standing army. They are basically volunteers that show up one weekend a month to train (if they do that) and so on. They are made up of citizens. They are pretty much under the jurisdiction of the state.

I must agree full heartedly with you on the idea that much of the leadership in the event of a revolution will come from the vets. If things don't change for the better I fear that this will indeed come to pass.

You know, all this talk of rebellion, civil war, do you people really all think it's gonna happen? There's a simple solution that doesn't take a war. STOP voting for SOCIALISTS! Jeez! Obama never made it a secret how far left he leaned or how involved he felt the government should be in private citizen's lives. Unfortuately stupid people are allowed to vote. I doubt we (NH) will ever actually separate from the FEDGOV. However if we did it, hopefully it would be peaceful, there's no need for violence over diffrences of opinion.

Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union. (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)



1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We will control the space industry.

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.

3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it. The term "Don't mess with Texas," will take on a whole new meaning.

4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. Yankee states? Sorry about that.

5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need and it's too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry will have to figure out a way to keep them warm....

6. Computer Industry - we currently lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications--small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Miconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Delphi, Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care - We have the largest research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. Dallas has some of the best hospitals in the United States.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us going: University of Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Rice, SMU, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT (University of North Texas), Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

9. We have a ready supply of workers. We could just open the border when we need some more.

10. We have essential control of the paper industry, plastics, insurance, etc.

11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard and the Texas Air National Guard. We don't have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over Chuck Norris and a couple of Texas Rangers.

12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let's not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don't need any food.

This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas in good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we need and don't have.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama:

Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 9 mpg SUV. The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

You won't have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off satellite communications.

You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.

Signed, The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to think about!

SLEEP WELL TONIGHT THE EYES OF TEXAS ARE UPON YOU!!

Personally this just seems like the next step on the road to America's collapse, which seems more inevitable every day.

My money is on the eastern seaboard joining the European union, the south and plains states being a new nation, Vermont becoming its own independent nation, and I think that Canada's going to annex the Midwest


Oh, and Texas, I would keep my eyes on those Mexicans if I were you.

Aye I'm sure that a) Maine et al would rather be a part of a supranational organisation that doesn't contain Americans and the populations of which generally don't like tham, b) that the Canadians are going to bother to take the Midwest when they have enough problems with their own hicks and c) that the Mexicans are going to use their army to fight the US instead of try to take out drug traffickers etc.

Yes. I really believe this.

you're unequivacally wrong, the fed govt does NOT own the military. The military is actually owned by the individual states whre the people swar in to the military and are called into action by the federal government in a time of need.

People really ned to start reading the constitution.

All military personnel are sworn to uphold the constitution of the united states against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. If the Feds want to violate th constitution, it is the states obligation to use those that that state as sworn in to the armed services and use them to support and defend the constitution.

You migh be surprised to find out how many in the armed forces would e willing to do so f the call arose.

Sounds nice and proper, but good ol' Uncle Sammy can twist the screws pretty easily.
"From :The Boss
To: The states
Re the states rights affirmation.
To the people.
I wholeheartedly agree with your decision to remove federalism from your state, therefore, in the interest of returning your "rights", all federal funds are immediately rescinded.
This includes, but is not limited to, education subsidies, farm subsidies, federal highway funds, jobs programs funding, indigent and distressed workers and families funding.
Also, all federal offices and employers are to immediately cease operation and prepare for relocation, including any military, prisons, reserve banks, federal legal system, among others. All loans and guaranties made by the VA, Fanniemae and freddiemac are immediatly due and payable,FDIC is suspended and as the FCC and FAA are federal agencies, I hereby recall all licenses to operate under those agencies outside your state.
You should consider closing all your airports and cease all broadcasting, as those federal licenses to operate outside your state are now null and void, and we wouldn't want to infringe upon your neighbor states, now would we?
I wish to personally thank every person in your state for this gracious sacrifice to help the federal stimulus reach it's goal to rescue the economies of your neighbor states."

And what the states would do then is tell the Big Brother to go pound sand and recall all their guardsmen and women and stop sending any money to DC. It wouldn't take long for others to follow suit either. I believe many states are very tired of sending all those dollars to DC only to see them take care of larger states with greater populations and ignore the problems of the small states with lesser populations!

They are not owned when they declare martial law. The States own nothing and are completely under the direction of the US Government. Google.......Patriot Act can declare anyone a terrorist. The John Warner National Defense Authorization Act, one national disaster which is what they will create again, and then the President can declare a national disaster, and with the planned crime wave by MS-13 martial law without any approval within 15 days. It overrides the Posse Comitatus Act and 10,000 US military are already on standby as of October 1, 2008 to respond to a national crisis. We have 3,000 concentration camps built in the US now, by Halliburton, google it.....and it is confirmed from reliable sources that there are 350,000 well equipped and well trained Mexican troops prepared to enter the US when all this goes down. There are in fact Asian and Russian troops to back them up at the same time.

This is only scratching the surface.......Prepare for a flu pandemic and one nuclear explosion about 10-12 KT to set this off.........no kidding. Its all there. When? We don't know.......

Also, there is the precedent of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution passed by congress in '64 which gave the President the power to conduct military operations without congressional approval. The Resolution was repealed, but the precedent has been established.

According to the Constitution, all powers not given to the Fed are relegated to the individual state governments, and, Article IV of the Constitution requires states to respect the laws of other states- a domino effect almost, if you will. If one state begins to do something illegal, only the federal government can intervene. Its neighboring states would have no power to stop the activity. Therefore, a decline in Federal power (like during a state of domestic crisis, when its eyes are elsewhere) would inadvertently result in an increase in day-to-day state presence in people's lives, and an increase in state power.

I believe you have it backwards. States are required to protect their citizens from abuse by the Federal Government! Its part of the Federation of States rights. Should a state be threatened by the government they have the right to ignore that threat. Under the Ninth and Tenth amendment the state do not relinquish the rights of their citizens. The Tenth amendment garuntees that there is no explicit right of the Federal Gov to dictate any secession of rights not expresly inumerated inthe document. Also, a case could be made by the Eleventh that the government could not force a state to do anything the citizens of that state as a whole agree to do!

martial law under the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act of 2006 and several revisons supercedes the states control without congressional approval. Over 1,000 letters overriding most all the Government agencies giving the President full power when he declares martial law in the next homemade incident and it will come.

Over 1,000,000 to 3,000,000 UN and Russian Troops in the US today, plus 350,000 well trained and well equipped Mexican troops trained specifically to enter the US on 6+ fronts, followed by the Asians and Russian troops in behind them......plus the Russians in Canada and Alaska, with Obama sending 17,000 more troops to Afghanistan to make sure they won't interfere we are in trouble. Now this is not speculation......it is now set up exactly as I said.

The CIA, according to sources has set up a crime wave involving MS-13 and LGF gangs in over 3,500 cities to break out, conduct home invasions, robberies, rapes, etc..........so that we will want martial law and soon. 3rd Divison is presently on duty in the United States, as of October 1, 2008 to handle any domestic disturbances........? Hmmmm, isn't that against the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878? sure is, but wait, the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act of 2006 is priority and supercedes............without congressional approval. This will lead us to join the north American union by 2010, issue of the Real ID card that was supposed to be issued in may of 2008 when Bush was going to help Israel attack Iran, but got caught when AF personnel blew the whistle on them moving the nukes from Minot to Barksdale. Yes, 9 AF personal were murdered from July to August for that one.........looking like accidents. Similar to the "accident" in Buffalo this past week when they also took out the Genocide activist with 49 other people........Hillary can't get the central African culling to start with colonel Bagosora in jail. Also the African union is due to form with the other 7 Unions to make 10 for the world government.

now, This sounds like a lot, but I have left out tons more, and have done the research plus linking. I suggest all of you research this before flaming back........oh, I forgot to mention....the 3,000 US concentration camps just completed over the past 10 years, by Hallliburton to take in "dissidents"........oh yes they are ready now. FOLKS , we have been duped. Research this and you will find its all true. New Age Movement uses Felons as security forces, which includes gangs. They are loyal. Calif will release 40% of their prison population soon, they will give them voting rights and then many states will follow. the loss of jobs will entice them to take security jobs and they won't be benevolent. The Prisons have been running a program called Christian Identity that has prepared them mentally to believe that they are doing God's work, and will fit them into the New Age Religion and movment. Clever huh........

Its about that time they will step up the plans...................expect something on the east and West coast as well.................
Inside source reveals FEMA & DHS preparing for mass graves and martial law near Chicago
February 11th, 2009 | Audio, Martial Law


By: D. H. Williams @ 10:41 PM - ESTAn Indiana county municipal official in the vicinity of Chicago reveals the contents of his meetings with FEMA and the Department of Homeland Security . The initial requests seem reasonable enough when FEMA asks the county officials to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan to deal with flooding, fires, high winds and tornadoes.But as the required meetings and calls with FEMA and DHS continue over a two year period their request become more unusual, raising suspicions of county officialsListen to the audio:

“We want to know every important thing in this county. We want to know where police departments are. Where weapons are stored. Hazardous material. Where can we land a helicopter. Where are the airports. How big a plane can you land at the airport. Where are all the bridges. Where are all the power stations. Where are all the generating stations.Where are all the substations. They literally wanted to know where everything was. I’m sitting there thinking man if there was ever martial law. This kind of information is exactly the kind of stuff they are going to want. We’re just laying it all out for them right there.”

During the legally mandated meetings held with FEMA and DHS different disaster scenarios were reveled to county officials:

In late December 2008 municipal officials were invited to Indianapolis for a briefing on the state of Indiana. There were told if industry were to collapse for example GM goingbankrupt resulting in mass unemployment a depression would soon follow and municipalities could expect to loose 40% of their funds.

Every county in the nation would be required to prepare a Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The county should prepare a plan to vaccinate the entire population within 48 hours and practice the plan several times.

FEMA inquired to where mass graves could be placed in the county and would they accept bodies from elsewhere.

The sheriff’s department via the state sheriff association was told that no .223 ammunition rounds would be available as the military would be purchasing all stocks.

The county was asked to make plans for “hardening” of police and fire stations, putting in hardened bunker type buildings around town.
The county was asked to make plans for the possibility of up to 400,000 refugees from Chicago.

reference the possibility of a 10-12 KT nuke and followed by a generated Bird flu pandemic.....and martial law.......

Marchers block US border to protest army presence

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – Hundreds of people blocked bridges to the United States in three border cities Tuesday, demanding the army leave in another challenge for the Mexican government as it struggles to quell escalating drug violence. The protests in Ciudad Juarez blocked traffic for about two hours across three bridges connecting the city to El Paso, Texas. Similar protests broke out on bridges in the border cities of Nuevo Laredo and Reynosa. Demonstrators blocked city hall and a main avenue in the northern industrial city of Monterrey and roads in the Gulf state of Veracruz. It was the largest display of discontent against the army's role in an anti-drug crackdown since President Felipe Calderon began deploying soldiers across the country two years ago to fight cartels. About 45,000 soldiers are now spread out across Mexico. Government and army officials claimed that drug cartels organized similar protests in Monterrey earlier this month to undermine the crackdown. Federal officials had no immediate comment on Tuesday's protests. Human rights activists say there are legitimate complaints about abuses by soldiers, including cases in which patrols allegedly opened fire on civilians at military checkpoints. But they say it is unclear who has been behind the demonstrations. Calderon's offensive was initially widely popular among Mexicans hopeful for an end to relentless shootings, kidnappings and killings. But drug violence has only surged since then, with drug gangs beheading rivals and attacking police nearly every day. More than 6,000 people were killed in drug violence last year. Border towns have been transformed by the crackdown, with soldiers in ski masks regularly rumbling down the streets in large convoys. About 30 people, mostly women and children, blocked the Paso del Norte bridge leading from Ciudad Juarez to downtown El Paso. They shouted "Soldiers, get out!" as they stood in front of about 20 troops in green army pickup trucks. One person held a sign reading, "Get out of Juarez, thieving abusive soldiers." Brenda Contreras, a 22-year-old mother of two, said the city has only become more dangerous since troops arrived. She said soldiers detained her 32-year-old husband during a raid at a car wash three months ago, and she has not heard from him despite filing a complaint with the Defense Department. "I saw him on the floor and they wouldn't let me get near him. Where he is, only the army knows. What am I going to tell my daughters?" she said. The protesters waved to soldiers and dispersed peacefully after about an hour, allowing a long line of cars to proceed across the bridge. Not all residents, however, are against the army's presence. "Knowing that the soldiers are out there all over the city makes me feel that the city is more protected," said Cynthia de los Santos, 32, a secretary at a Ciudad Juarez law firm.Still, violence continued Tuesday in Ciudad Juarez, where three police officers — including the operations director of the city police — were shot to death by unidentified assailants on a street near the U.S. consulate. Another officer was wounded. Police also found several other bodies apparently killed in separate incidents. In Nuevo Laredo, 150 people blocked three bridges leading to Laredo, Texas, for several hours. Many were masked men, but some were women and children. Demonstrators also blocked bridges from Reynosa, forcing some nearby businesses to close, including one pharmacy that shut its doors for about two hours. Asked if she believed the protesters were paid by drug traffickers, as the government has alleged, pharmacist Cristina Cazares said that while the news media does not report it, "everybody says that." She said the protest ended without incident around the time that news of a gunbattle reached the bridge. The federal Public Safety Department said the battle took place in Reynosa between federal police and a group of gunmen and that soldiers joined the fight when police asked for help. Five gunmen were killed and seven police officers were wounded, one seriously, the department said in a statement. Seven suspected assailants were detained. And in the southern state of Guerrero, police said they found the bullet-ridden bodies of two 16-year-old boys who had been reported kidnapped. ___ Associated Press writers E. Eduardo Castillo in Mexico City, Jorge Vargas in Nuevo Laredo, Marina Montemayor in Ciudad Juarez, Miguel Angel Hernandez in Veracruz and Christopher Sherman in Reynosa contributed to this report.

Drug gangs drive off cops, terrorize Mexican town
I submit , no war on drugs, its a ploy to position troops.........

By JULIE WATSON, Associated Press Writer Julie Watson, Associated Press Writer – Tue Feb 17

VILLA AHUMADA, Mexico – For people caught inside Mexico's drug corridors, life is about keeping your head down and watching your back, especially when the sun dips behind the cactus-studded horizon. No town knows this better than Villa Ahumada, where the entire police force quit after 70 cartel hit men roared through last spring, killing the police chief, two officers and three townspeople. Residents were left defenseless again last week when gunmen returned and kidnapped nine people, despite the soldiers manning checkpoints far outside town."This was a mellow town where we would walk along main street at night. But now we're too scared to even go out," said Zaida de Santiago. For this lanky 14-year-old, everything changed last May 17. She was dancing at a neighbor's ranch when gunfire shattered the night. The party's hosts turned off the lights and silenced the music. The guests stood frozen, ears trained to the sound of automatic weapons as the gunmen raced down gravel streets in their SUVs. When the sun rose hours later, the party guests learned that armed cartel commandos had killed the police chief and five others. Soon after, the rest of the 20-member force quit in fear. "That day will always remain burned in my mind," Santiago said. Federal investigators say Villa Ahumada is a key stop along one of Mexico's busiest drug smuggling routes, where the Sinaloa cartel has been challenging the Juarez gang for control. The military staffs checkpoints miles outside town, and soldiers and federal police roll through each day, but residents are largely left on their own. Sliced by a railroad and the Pan-American Highway heading straight to the U.S. border, the town is one of many outposts across Mexico — many of them too small to appear on maps — that cartels need to dominate in order to ensure passage of their U.S.-bound loads of marijuana and coc aine. The town of 15,000 is about 80 miles south of El Paso, Texas. "In the small towns, the narcos want to have an open sesame," said George Grayson, a Mexico expert at the College of William & Mary in Virginia. "They want to be able to pass through as they see fit, and they've got the muscle to enforce that, but it's unfortunate for the residents. This is where you've got enclaves of failure." Cartels treat these towns as fiefdoms — in some communities, everyone from the furniture owner to the barman to local officials pay a kind of tax to the gunslingers, border expert Victor Clark said. The extortion not only gives gangs an extra income, it also makes clear who's boss. "In land occupied by organized crime, society's rules are completely altered," said Clark, a lecturer at San Diego State University who has studied one such town in the Mexican state of Baja California. "This is their territory, and you pay them for protection, or they will kill you." Villa Ahumada has been without a city police force since May, unable to find anyone brave enough to take the job. Even Mayor Fidel Chavez fled for a time to the state capital, Chihuahua City, last year. After the army and state police pledged to have more of a presence in town, he returned and put 10 residents in charge of reporting suspicious activities to the authorities. But there was little these unarmed citizen patrols could do when heavily armed assailants in black ski masks drove SUVs into town last week, kicking in doors and carting off nine residents in blindfolds. They called state authorities, closed their office and fled. The gunmen had already executed six of the hostages near a desolate ranch called El Vergel, about 30 minutes north of town, by the time soldiers swooped in. The other three kidnapped men were rescued as soldiers rappelled into the desert from helicopters to chase those fleeing on foot. By the time the shooting stopped, 14 suspected pistoleros and one soldier were dead, and townspeople felt more desperate than ever. "We want some authority here. They kill here and no one does anything," complained a frail 67-year-old woman, gripping a cane as she walked past crumbling adobe homes. Her daughter stopped her from giving her name, warning: "They might kill our entire family if you do." Villa Ahumada is a town where scruffy dogs amble down gravel streets alongside slow-moving pickups. The economy depends on highway travelers stopping to eat at countless wooden burrito stands, but business has dropped by 50 percent since last week's violence, and the mayor has criticized the media for harming tourism. He declined repeated requests by The Associated Press for an interview. Many townspeople have turned to God for answers, said the Rev. Fernando Nava, who presides over the Roman Catholic church. "Fathers have lost sons, sons have lost fathers," he said. "This is affecting families, which is what the church is concerned about." Some residents are stepping forward despite the risks to demand more safety. Nine men applied to be police officers this week as part of a renewed effort by the state of Chihuahua to establish a presence in town. "These are all people from the town who want peace and security for their families," said Manuel Rodriguez of the Chihuahua State Public Safety Department. He was administering an exam Monday designed to evaluate their skills, character and psychological stamina, with questions like: "Do you consider men and women equal?" and "What would you do if there was an attempt on your life?" Ismael Rivera, a lifelong resident, decided to apply after spending seven months as an unarmed guard. "A lot of us don't know how to read or write," said Rivera, donning a black baseball cap with the word "guard" emblazoned in yellow across the front. "But they are going to give us the chance to study and work at the same time." Rivera keeps an eye on things from the former police station, a small office where a yellow note on the wall lists the cell phone of a state police officer. Taped above it is a list of telephone numbers of federal officers. A toy Spider-Man and a picture of Jesus Christ adorn another wall. A bike with "police" painted on its rusty frame leans against the fence outside. Joining the force is an opportunity to do something for his three children, but Rivera admits he's nervous. "Of course, you are scared," he said. "You go home and you think about quitting."
