The Oath Keepers are a decent group, they simply are following the oath they took to uphold the constitution.

So instead of CNN focusing on how bad this health care bill really is, as a tool to tax and destroy middle class America once again, they focus stories trying to demonize any patriotic type group, or anyone who is trying to restore America to a free society that it was meant to be.
The establishment really seems to be trying hard recently to demonize and bring down any one who opposes them. It is so obvious, yet some people are still living in a make believe world created by the media and TV, where the Fed loves you and will take care you, and never lies to you.

I know, right? It's like the video had nothing to do with the spin of the story. Out of place to say the least. I loved how the CNN guy gave her like 9 openings for her to bash the militias but she never did.

S&F They have to demonize anyone that does not want-

One world governance.
Abolition of country's sovereign borders.
Single world currency.
World social justice/world redistribution of wealth.
Elite control of all resources.
Elimination of individual freedoms of Life, Liberty, and Property.
Collectivist equalization except for those in control.
Elimination of individual belief systems.
Elimination of oaths to ancient relics like the Constitution.


I find it amusing that pseudo intellectuals think that not just ANYONE, can interpret the Constitution.

I find it amusing that pseudo intellectuals do not realize that the Constitution was written using Natural Law and Common Law principles.

I find it amusing that pseudo intellectuals do not know that we are no longer ruled by Common Law and are rather governed by a bastardization of Maritime/Admiralty and Equity Law into an abhorrent thing called Uniform Commercial Code.

I find it amusing that the Constitution, as written, is a VERY simple document to understand and the pseudo intellectuals think, that the average person does not realize, that getting back to the TRUE Constitution, will correct everything our society's ills are created by-the government's defiance of LAW.

I find it amusing that the whole basic premise of the Constitution, to RESTRICT government has been thrown out, and now pseudo intellectuals think they can fool the people into believing it ACTUALLY means something completely DIFFERENT.

Even people that know NOTHING about the Constitution, know that the government is no longer running within it's own tenet of law.

I could go on, but pseudo intellectuals like the one in the OP's video and the asshat's in Washington (all of them), I am finding to be less and less amusing.

Actually no he wasn't he is not a natural born citizen so he is ineligible to be the president. And even if he was lawfully elected that does not make him dictator. The constitution was written precisely to limit the powers of the federal government, it in fact only delegates 17 enumerated powers to the government none of which include health care or most of what the congress and president do these days. So he is a traitor to the constitution by acting outside its scope and assuming and exercising powers not delegated to him!


The HCR bill was passed and signed into law according to the mandates of the Constitution.


Ah no it was passed against the mandates of the constitution. It might help if you actually read the constitution. Nowhere is there authority for congress regulate health care. Nowhere is democracy even mentioned and for good reason. You might want to start with the 9th and 10th amendments.


If the Oath Keepers are objecting to the Constitutional system just because people they don't like are in power, then they are a domestic enemy of the Constitution. As long as they are only verbally engaged, fine. If they ever should decide to take up arms (which is laughable with these types), they should be dealt with accordingly.


WOW the ignorance is amazing. Oath keepers is all about keeping thier oath to uphold the constitution. The constitution does not allow congress to vote on every aspect of our lives contrary to your socialist/communist indoctrination. Of course you will disagree but perhaps you could kindly point out where among the 17 powers enumerated to the federal government in the constitution do they have the authority you claim they do? Most of what congress and the president do today is completely outside the scope of thier authority!

I won't hold my breath for your answer.

With creating negative concepts such as "hatriots," the main-stream-media is simply digging it's own grave.

How would you define patriots?

Sometimes I think of patriots as those on ATS who have become a sharp thorn in TPTB’s side, as they stand their watch, present their research, and courageously state their case in opposition to the lies and self-serving liars. They're doing work that helps to expose the unchecked political corruption that exists today in America.

"Political corruption affects the United States at every level. It undermines economic development, increases the cost of business, lowers compliance with environmental regulations and reduces the quality of government services.”

americanaffairs.suite101.com...

Hey CNN, you think you’ve seen a formidable militia group or a significant patriot gathering?

You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Keep it up, and you can be sure some patriots will be knocking on your door one day.

Larry, you are assuming that these "patriot groups" are republicans. My guess is that these are largley 3rd party supporters. For you to still be falling for or preaching a democrat/republican paradigm is quite naive IMO.

Character Assassination and Public Libel, while not forms of criminal activity, ARE indeed a form of activity covered under TORT LAW, and are things liable for compensatory action under governing statutes.

I wouldn't be suprised to learn that the Oath Keepers take CNN to court - suing for 'damages'.


The truth is a defense to any action for defamation. I'd love to defend that lawsuit. The discovery alone would be huge fun. "How are you financed?" List the number and type of every weapon any member possesses."
CNN is a Time-Warner company. That's 3.32 Billion in revenues to defend with.


Your not a bar attorney are you? Because that is a typical response of a scum attorney. What weapons one owns is totally irrelevant. But then again you might get away with it in these de facto private foreign courts where your brother attorney the judge colludes with you and the plaintiff attorney to line your pockets.

I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around CNN's opinion of Oath Keepers? Who is signing their checks anyway? Whats so wrong about defending the rights of others above obvious inept self serving issues? Sorry folks I just cannot see the wrong in Oath Keepers.

Why would you state "the Oath Keepers are objecting to the Constitutional system" when the very definition of Oath Keepers is supporting the constitution? Did you mean to write "support" instead of "object".

The constitution lists the specific duties of the US Federal Government. Wealth redistribution is not one of them. As for Obama being installed constitutionally, that is a good guess on your part, but just that. In fact there is no way to know now that over a year has passed to leave room for all kinds of tampering on "both sides" of the argument.

If oath keepers takes up arms it will likely be because the constitution is no longer being followed for the most part. Therefore, you'll likely be on the side of tyranny if you think they need to be "dealt with" in that situation. And the way you write "dealt with" is ridiculous. You are talking about a full scale civil war and writing off the much more principled side as able to be written off and "dealt with" as if it were a simple matter rounding them up and slaughtering them.

I challenge you to produce any evidence like quotes where Oath Keepers rails against the tort system or system for any other system for compensation of damages. I believe you are completely wrong and believe Oath Keepers has a deep appreciation for the system of civil lawsuits.

Not Surprised by CNN latest so called Paid_Fringe Opinion




Editor's note: John P. Avlon is a senior political columnist for The Daily Beast and author of the new book "Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America." New York (CNN) -- At least 10 death threats have been leveled against members of Congress since the health care vote. Windows at four district offices or county party headquarters have been shattered with bricks.


So the reason for the raids keeps changings? isnt that strange floks?

first it was some minor death thread, then there was the death threats agaisnt the Islamic organizations and here now we all of a sudden we have

10 death threats agasint members of congress? hmm i wonder why do they keep changing it? whats there real purpose.

Swearing you will never fire on American citizens, or attack your own people is "hateful" now??? Protecting your country and reaffirming your Oath to uphold the constitution is terrorism.......???

Pushing wmds, that never existed, and war propaganda.... causing the deaths of American soldiers and Innocent Iraqis equates to terrorism and is in fact quite hateful. Thanks CNN. (Alex Jones Rhetoric there sorry).

I guess people should join "the weatherman" and start bombing stuff. That would be good in the MSMs mind right, Or Maybe join the Mossad?

I know Rhoades or Mack would never mingle with convicted terrorists. I know for a FACT Barry has. And Rhams dad WAS a terrorist.

The Oath keepers has more Honor and American loyalty in their pinky finger...than the entire Parroting gov. owned media....and everyone in the D.C...Including the Last administration

Once the propaganda starts, shortly after.... comes the enforcers.

"THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.

THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up."

The Oath Keepers will keep this scenario from happening folks...thats why you should support them.

The same thing could be said for the Ku Klux Klan defending the rights of the whites. What's wrong with that?

Militias have a long way to go to make them look like respectable organizations. Currently, they look like a bunch of whacko gun nuts.

The majority of people saying that they'll take up arms against the government don't seem to want to give government a chance and frankly, I don't see them standing up when the rights started getting taken away, and now that a black man is in charge, they're up in arms...

It doesn't matter how it IS, it matters how it LOOKS in this case.

Apparently you were a child when Bill Clinton was president, after he used federal forces to kill people in Waco and Ruby Ridge, and when they were ramming anti gun legislation like the Brady bill there was a dramatic increase in militia memberships across the country. Maybe you aren't aware that Clinton is not black and neither was Brady (he took a bullet that was intended for Ronald Reagan). Playing the race card in this case is ridiculous, ignorant, and towing the party line without thinking. If you are so narrow minded that you get your opinion from what the TV tells you it is maybe you should just leave the disscussion to the adults.

Firing him would be a violation of his constitutional rights. Hmmm... How is it you can support the Oath Keepers who swear to defend the constitution but not the free exercise of those constitutional rights - namely the freedom of speech and freedom of the press - when they express an opinion you disprove of? You people seem to have some deranged love/hate relationship with the constitution.

Describing the "Oath Keepers" as "Hatriots" is accurate.
