Scaremongering, fear tactics, and misdirection, this is nothing more than that, completely.
If even 1% of American citizens actually knew a damn thing about the Constitution, and the laws of America, it would in fact be scary as Hell, because
this type of "Alex Jones"
nonsense would not be listened to, in any way, shape, or form.
I say that while not directing it at the original poster, but at the source websites and video.
First and foremost, the laws of the land are written, in plain language, research them.
Second and next important, no one person within Government, can do a damn thing.
Third and next important, the Separation of Powers
, are clearly defined, know them.
Quote from : Wikipedia : Separation of Powers Under the United States Constitution
Separation of powers is the political doctrine which the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government are kept distinct, to prevent
abuse of power.
This U.S. form of separation of powers is associated with a system of checks and balances.
During the Age of Enlightenment, several philosophers, such as John Locke and James Harrington, advocated the principle in their writings, whereas
others, such as Thomas Hobbes strongly opposed it.
Montesquieu was one of the foremost supporters of separating the legislature, the executive and the judiciary.
His writings considerably influenced the opinions of the framers of the United States Constitution.
Strict separation of powers did not operate in Britain, a country whose political structure served in most instances as a model for the government
created by the U.S. Constitution.
Under the British Westminster system, based on parliamentary sovereignty and responsible government, Parliament (consisting of the Sovereign
(King-in-Parliament), House of Lords and House of Commons - was the supreme lawmaking authority.
The executive branch acted in the name of the King ("His Majesty's Government") as did the judiciary.
The King's Ministers were in most cases members of one of the two Houses of Parliament, and the Government needed to sustain a majority in the House
One minister, the Lord Chancellor, was at the same time the sole judge in the Court of Chancery and the presiding officer in the House of Lords.
Thus, one may conclude that the three branches of British government often violated the strict principle of separation of powers, even though there
were many occasions when the different branches of the government disagreed with each other.
Some U.S. states did not observe a strict separation of powers in the 18th century.
In New Jersey, the Governor also functioned as a member of the state's highest court and as the presiding officer of one house of the New Jersey
The President of Delaware was a member of the Court of Appeals; the presiding officers of the two houses of the state legislature also served in the
executive department as Vice Presidents.
In both Delaware and Pennsylvania, members of the executive council served at the same time as judges. On the other hand, many southern states
explicitly required separation of powers.
Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia all kept the branches of government "separate and distinct."
The vast majority of United States citizens, are completely ignorant of law, that is seen.
Yes, there are Emergency Planning laws, which will actually shut down certain rights of citizens, but there has to be an incident happen, whether real
or a False-Flag Operation
, something has to actually happen, before those contingency plans can and or will be implemented, I have thoroughly
researched each and every single one of them as I have learned of them throughout my life.
What most amazes me, is the lack of comprehension of American's, when it comes to the laws, and how they would rather rail against them, instead of
do a damn things about them, legally, and without violence, because that is the one and only way any one of us citizens will be able to do it, and I
am not speaking of just voting during elections, but getting off their lazy keister's and run for office.
Now, before anyone even bothers nattering on about using Wikipedia as a reference, it contains more resources than most people actually know about,
because they usually do not bother actually reading what it has to say, or the website references they utilize in order to make it a very effective
and powerful search tool, if you know how to use it.
I say all of this because frankly, I am quite done with listening to sheer idiocy.
That is no reference to any one person, nor is it a personal attack in any way, shape, or form against any group of people, but it is an attack, if
you will, against the blind ignorance I keep seeing, hearing, and touch base with on a daily basis.
Who Among Us, and How to Find Them.
The link above was done with some thought, by another ATS member, and someone threw my name into the arena as a viable candidate, but I am not seeking
out an office, just because of exactly what I say in this post, as well as in that thread.
People, you need to seriously wake up, if you believe that the Government can do a damn thing, without clear delineation of following the laws, after
Here is your opportunity, to do something about it, in many ways, and get off your keister.
Quit your whining, complaining, and bitching about how they will do something, one way or another, and go put your name on the ballot, or you are not
only not helping, you are destroying your one and only chance because of your own self-destructive nature through denial of yourself making the
I am going to give you a few suggestions, and you do with them, what you will.

The governed must know their government.

As a comprehensive overview and history of the subject, this book is designed to help anyone interested in learning about our government and the
origins of its complex inner workings, our political system, and key elements that have affected our growth as a nation- all while serving as the best
supplementary reading a student can get.
*Author is an experienced Advanced Placement teacher
*Students looking to take AP exams are a ready audience-along with citizenship applicants and CNN junkies
*Large renewable market
*Suitable as supplemental reading for coursework
I have all three of those books, I highly recommend you buy them, and use them.
As well, I have thousands of other books, and I research it.
Now, for each and every one of you, on ATS and those people you know who you speak to off of ATS, about ATS or politics in general, conspiracy
or otherwise, you have two real options from hereon out, two course of action.
You can either die on your knees, with a bullet in the back of your head, like a slave.
Or, you can stand your ground, fight for your rights, legally and without violence, with knowledge, experience, and power, and fight the good fight in
demanding that your country serve who it is supposed to, those citizens who want their rights.
Because I guarantee you, the Government has a contingency plan for each and every violent action you might consider, but they sure as Hell do not have
a single contingency plan if you actually get off your duff and run for office all at once.
Imagine that, each and every citizen running, for office, instead of for their lives in fear.
We as citizens are much more powerful than those residing in the halls of Government, you just have to do the right thing, and get into office, and
throw them for a loop, because those people in Government right now, on both sides of the political aisle are fighting, bickering, and backstabbing
Do not make that mistake and do the same damn things that they are doing.
Get off your duff and get into office, or you are wasting your every opportunity to actually make a change.
