Oath Keepers – http://oathkeepers.org/oath/
Which of these oaths scare you? Which of these oaths are dangerous? Which of these oaths sound like a “revolt”?
How many of these oaths are completely in line with the U.S. Constitution?
Answer: All of them are completely in line with the U.S. Constitution.
Dictators cannot control a country without the cooperation of armies and police forces threatening with weapons and imprisonment. Without armed forces obeying the dictates of a despot in office, there can be no dictatorship. Our Constitution set up the rules to guarantee our freedom and liberty, but a despot will ignore them, write new laws that benefit him/herself and send the armed forces and police to intimidate, arrest and shoot protestors. We’ve seen this scenario played out around the world too many times.
How does a despot get in office in the first place? He/she lies to the electorate about what they believe in, what they stand for, and what they will do if elected. They espouse a populist message, telling voters what they know the voters favor. But once in office, they immediately begin to implement their own agenda, which takes away the freedoms of the people one by one until all liberty is lost. The dictator has two goals; lifetime power and personal wealth. BUT, he will tell the citizens that he only wants to help YOU, give YOU what YOU want and need, make YOUR life better. While a dictator-in-the-making may throw YOU a bone or two to keep YOU satisfied and unsuspicious, he/she is busily laying the foundation for THEIR OWN power and wealth behind closed doors.
They use “crisis” to make drastic un-Constitutional moves and circumvent the laws designed to protect our freedom. Obama’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emmanuel has said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” It’s obvious that Obama believes that, too.
There are many citizens, some in the media, who will not believe this is happening until it’s irreversible. Wouldn’t it be much wiser and safer to pay close attention to everything from the beginning and nip any such behavior in the bud, so that our freedom is never in jeopardy and we have little to nothing to reverse?
Of course, it’s difficult to believe this could ever happen in America, but look at what has already happened that is unbelievable; czars, bank take-overs, GM take-over, student loans take-over, brainwashing in the schools, NEArts collusion, crooks in Congress and the Presidential cabinet, queering of elementary schools (Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar, Kevin Jennings), Miranda rights to enemy combatants captured in war, the President slandering America all around the world, mocking Christianity while praising the Muslim faith, giving away our sensitive national defense secrets, cozying up to despots and dictators around the world, snubbing our friends and allies around the world, purposely devaluing the U.S. dollar, advocating America sign world treaties that over-ride the U.S. Constitution, giving away more money than Americans can earn and pay for generations to every outlandish idea while decreasing the funding for America’s military engaged in two wars, and on and on and on. Next on the horizon IS Obama going to Copenhagen to sign away our democracy to a world treaty on climate change! This MUST BE STOPPED NOW. This is another document with dangerous fine print not read by our elected officials, nor by the general public.
The Oath Keepers see the handwriting on the wall and are saying flatly, “Not on our watch!” They took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and have pledged to keep that oath no matter who is in office. If they are ever asked to violate the Constitution, they will NOT.
Some in the Obama-controlled news media are characterizing this group as “dangerous”, “radicals”, and using the label “revolt” to describe what their intentions are. This is all a false smear campaign. Why would Obama care if he has no intentions of ever asking the military or law enforcement agencies to violate the Constitution? Why would the media attack a group that is saying, “We will uphold the Constitution if ordered to violate it.”
The Las Vegas Review-Journal online is going so far as to connect Timothy McVeigh and other “nut jobs” who have committed crimes and murder with the Oath Keepers.
“In a July report titled “Return of the Militias,” the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center singled out Oath Keepers as “a particularly worrisome example of the Patriot revival.”
The Patriot movement, so named because its adherents believe the federal government has stepped on the constitutional ideals of the American Revolution, gained traction in the 1990s and has been closely linked to anti-government militia and white supremacist movements.
The movement is blamed for spawning Timothy McVeigh, who bombed a federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995, killing 168 people.
“I’m not accusing Stewart Rhodes or any member of his group of being Timothy McVeigh or a future Timothy McVeigh,” law center spokesman Mark Potok said. “But these kinds of conspiracy theories are what drive a small number of people to criminal violence. …”
The author of this smear piece has left himself an “out” by saying, “I’m not accusing…” Of course he is. He wants to discredit this group so that they will be shamed out of business. This group poses a threat to Obama and others who may follow him.
It’s a tactic that’s been used before. When talk show host, Rush Limbaugh was the fastest growing program on radio and/or television in the nineties, the Clinton administration and their left-wing buddies in the media, tried to connect McVeigh with Limbaugh. They deliberately and methodically tried to blame Limbaugh for inciting McVeigh to commit the atrocity of the Oklahoma City bombing. It wasn’t true and the American people were too smart to buy that tripe. They won’t buy it this time, either. They also see the handwriting on the wall. The news media in conjunction with the Obama administration tried to smear the Tea Party Movement recently. They tried to scare people into believing that this movement was full of dangerous radicals inciting violence. Americans didn’t buy that. Instead, they joined them.
The Obama administration is a lot scarier than the Oath Keepers.
Let’s all subscribe to the same motto today. “Not on my watch!.” We must ensure the same freedom and liberties for our kids and grandkids that we enjoyed growing up. We must protect America, the last bastion of true freedom on the planet. Where will the huddled masses go if America falls to a despot regime?
