Many do not agree with my assertion that our Republic is “Teetering on the Brink of Destruction” and I can appreciate that. I do not want to be a “fear monger” and succumb to the many “conspiracy theories” that run rampant in our modern society. However, I see some things that scream DANGER and the very declaration of the organizers of the protests of the Left should give us great concern.
The U.S. Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 115, Section 2384 deals with “Seditious Conspiracy”. “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.” Then in Section 2385, it deals with “Advocating Overthrow of Government.” Due to the length of this section I will not give it in full but I must ask, “When the organizers of groups such as ANTIFA and REFUSE FASCISM, BLM, and others express as their objective to OVERTHROW the current administration and replace it with something of their liking does that not fall under both sections of the U.S. Code?” YES, it does!
Before you challenge me and argue FREEDOM OF SPEECH I must ask, “If your Freedom of Speech threatens our government, individual citizens, and incites violence is that acceptable, speech under the Constitution?” I am fully supportive of everyone’s right to SPEAK and express their views but when that speech is Seditious and Advocates the overthrow of our government it is no longer a right but a crime. That is exactly what is happening with many of the groups today and is becoming prevalent among those of their ideological persuasion. When groups that are rooted in Racism and elevate one race above others can call for the extermination of those, not like them, that is not Free Speech but a Crime. It should not be tolerated by Democrats or Republicans, liberals or conservatives, but it is. Those on the Left are embracing and encouraging the protests and activities of those protesting and many on the Right are cowering in the shadows afraid to condemn the actions fearing being negatively labeled and possibly suffering at the ballot box. That suggests that our Republic is teetering on the edge of the precipice of oblivion and should be a warning to all who love liberty and freedom.
We have a system of government and a method of electing the President that has served us well for over 200 years. That system has helped us remain a Constitutional Republic and if it is destroyed will plunge us into anarchy and the ultimate destruction of our cherished Freedom and Liberty in America. I cannot believe that anyone truly desires that, but many seem to believe the lie that our system is inherently evil and must be transformed into a more socialist system thinking that will produce the desired Utopia. IT WILL NOT! It will mean our doom as a Free Republic and open the door for the tyranny of the highest order and the enslavement (literally and figuratively) of the citizens. I feel compelled to sound the alarm and if no one heeds the warning I will continue to pray for my nation, attempt to expose the dangers and work to preserve the Republic. I hope my voice and others SOUNDING THE ALARM will be heard and will resonate with enough that we win this war.
The REFUSE FASCISM GROUP is organizing and planning an Occupy Wall Street/ANFIFA type of protest to begin on November 4, 2017. They are funded by leftist organizations and people such as George Soros and their expressed purpose is to TAKE DOWN the Trump/Pence Administration and remove them from office. That is subversive not simply a protest and fits the legal definition of “Seditious Conspiracy” and is advocating the overthrow of the government. Where is the FBI and the DOJ? This group does not have to achieve their goal for this to be a crime only express it and then organize to bring it about. This they have and are doing, and that makes them Criminals. They are not protected by the 1st Amendment in that condition and position. They have what they call “Seven Indictments of the Trump/Pence Regime” which focuses on things such as Muslims, Civil liberties, people of the world, women and LGBTQ people, white supremacy, police brutality, mass incarceration, the environment, and immigrants (illegals). They have declared in their advertising and paraphernalia these indictments serve three major functions. They are to be used to Educate about what they call the fascism of the present administration and the complicity of the federal government to allow the President to continue. They are to be used to Protest and call for disruption of our government and way of life hoping to enlist support and sympathy and bring about the ouster of the President and his entire administration. They are to be used to Organize and state that “driving out a fascist regime will require a lot of organization.” They call on their followers to spread this information everywhere to students, teachers, friends, family, co-workers, places of worship, professional organization, on social media, and beyond. Organize to overthrow the government is their stated objective. That is justification for indictment and not protected Freedom of Speech.
If we allow this type of activity to continue and if they somehow succeed or even disrupt and damage our economy we will have allowed the Republic’s foundation to be so severely damaged we will not survive. Many of us were distraught when Barack Obama won the presidency not once but twice but there was not the protest in the streets, the disruption of commerce, and the damage to life and property we see today. Most of us who were opposed to Barack Obama, not because of ethnicity but ideology and policy, honored the constitution and our system enough that we worked, prayed, and sought to change the direction of the nation at the ballot box and by influencing our elected officials NOT THROUGH SEDITIOUS BEHAVIOR.
I ask that you pay attention to what is being planned for November 4, 2017, and the declaration that they will not protest and then go home but will Occupy UNTIL they get what they want. What is different about that than hostage taking, terrorism, and subversion? It is all of those and is utterly opposite of the vision and provisions of our Constitution. Everyone has the right to peaceably assemble and to voice distaste for and opposition to any politician or direction of government. However, no one has the right, without facing the penalty of law, to organize, incite riots and violence, and seek to overthrow the government or any administration. Impeachment and elections are the constitutional provisions for removing a president from office, not sedition. If you are unhappy with President Trump offer an alternative for the 2020 election DO NOT seek to destroy our system. If we allow any process other than those two to achieve the objective of overthrowing any duly elected president we facilitate the destruction of the Republic. I WILL NOT SILENTLY ALLOW THAT and I hope you will join me in standing for America and in defense of our Constitution and System of Government and Elections. To do otherwise is to facilitate the destruction of our Republic. I would think that even people who do not like President Trump would be opposed to the destruction of our System of Government and Republic.
God bless you and God bless America!
