The First Amendment was dead on arrival.

A rare archival picture of Madison, the father of the constitution, shown here in a private moment.

A rare archival picture of Madison, the father of the constitution, shown here dressed casually in a private moment of reflection.

Americans are so proud of their supposed right to free speech and their holy first amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech

It sounds so great. So much freedomness. Of course our government never stops playing it up. And the media constantly reminds us how lucky we are and how indebted we are to our holy founding fathers’ selfless brilliance!

We are subtly indoctrinated with the idea that we should be proud to go fight and die for the politicians and the money power and to spend countless billions to avoid “losing our country” to “the enemy”. Always the concept is that we have to protect and defend what we “have” and our great traditions of freedom etc.  It really is just so much absurd propaganda aimed at the hapless and brainwashed masses they abuse and rule.

Think I am being too harsh? Well Look at this law passed in 1798. I highlighted it out so you can easily read just how outrageous it is. It is part of the Alien and Sedition acts of 1798 if you care to read the rest:

When you take the "constitution tour" in Philly, they let you use the same kind of pens our founders used when they were drafting all of our rights!

When you take the “constitution tour” in Philly, you get to see the Liberty bell and then they let you use the same kind of pens our founders used when they were drafting all of our rights!  It was all very exciting to be a part of history.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled,… That if any person shall write, print, utter or publish, or shall cause or procure to be written, printed, uttered or publishing, or shall knowingly and willingly assist or aid in writing, printing, uttering or publishing any false, scandalous and malicious writing or writings against the government of the United States, or either house of the Congress of the United States, or the President of the United States, with intent to defame the said government, or either house of the said Congress, or the said President, or to bring them, or either of them, into contempt or disrepute;… then such person, being thereof convicted before any court of the United States having jurisdiction thereof, shall be punished by a fine not exceeding two thousand dollars, and by imprisonment not exceeding two years.

That law was passed just 9 years after the holy constitution was ratified. 9 years!  Passed by the federalists. The same party who sold us the constitution. The same party who told us all about the limits of the federal government.  The party of Madison.  Author of the “Federalist papers”, the supposed “father of the constitution”.  The man who told everyone how limited the government would be under the constitution when selling it.  A law Signed by John Adams the SECOND president. One of our holy founding fathers.

Look at that law!

How could anyone take an oath to uphold the constitution and then pass a law like that?!   What is the possible point of the oath or the first amendment if the second president is already jamming crap like this law through? Where is the protection? Where is the limited government?

Where is the honor of these men?

What does it take to wake people up and get them to stop romanticizing our founding and our holy constitution? It is and was a politically expedient document designed to seize as much power as those driving the bus at that time could sneak past the peopleI know people don’t want to accept the reality, but the constitution is just Obamacare from 240 years ago. It is sold as something is not.

I took a tour of the capital some years back and the guide was kind enough to show us the correct way to take an official oath. It was very exciting to see the way things really work.

I took a tour of the capital some years back.  I got a quick pic when the guide was kind enough to show us the correct way to take an official oath. It was almost like being an insider!  I’ve started using this system all the time. 

Now remember, that is a CRIMINAL law I just set out. They are going to put the citizens in prison for speaking out against their government! Think of the hypocrisy!  How absurd this is in light of what they tell us this country stands for?

That fine was a HUGE amount of money back in 1798. Most people made less than $500.00 per YEAR! So it is more than 4 years salary for an average person.

And the law criminalizes political speech! I thought political speech was the holy of the holies of what the 1st amendment stood for? My god the ink wasn’t even dry on the constitution when they were passing this law.

How many people have signed up to fight and die thinking they were going to protect this very “right”? Do you see how “important” that right actually was to our founders as soon as that “right” got in the way of their political ambitions?

What a total con the history is they teach us.  They act like this law was some minor thing in government history books. They brush it aside. Minimize it. Mis-teach the little they do teach of it. Of course they do. Look what it reveals about our “founding”.

How would you like to be caught up in a law like this? Do you have the money and time to “take it to the supreme court”? Do you have the money to fight laws like this today? Like the unconstitutional Patriot act? Or the civil forfeiture scams they run, or drug laws or anything else? No, you do not have the money to fight these unconstitutional laws.  Almost nobody does.  And remember even if you do win you still have to pay your lawyer! And you probably WON’T win. lol

Now think about this.  The government prosecutes you with an unconstitutional law and the best that can happen is that you spend years of your life and a fortune of your own money to try and “get your rights” in order to “prevail”. The worst? You run out of money fighting, spend time in prison and have your life ruined.

Here from the Smithsonian, is a particularly well preserved official "heads I win, tails you lose" coin. This type of coin was often used by our founding fathers when settling disputes about the constitutionality of laws. Although the custom remains in use today, it is rarely used publicly.

Here from the Smithsonian, is a particularly well preserved original “heads I win, tails you lose” coin, used to resolve policy disputes between the parties when drafting laws and other documents.  People are unaware that the technique, referred to as “flipping them off”, is still widely used today by congress and the courts.  The coins are no longer available to the public due to “national security” concerns. 

The government RISKS NOTHING when it violates YOUR RIGHTS! You must risk it all! Why doesn’t the prosecutor have to risk his life? His money? Or the judge? Or the congressmen who passed it? Do you see the scam yet? The citizens run all the risks and the rulers get all the rewards. Yet people run around defending the system as though it protects them. Dying for the system that does this TO them. The people are truly lost in a maze of lies.

Here from the NSA’s wiki, are just a few examples of the way this law was used.

Benjamin Franklin Bache was editor of the Aurora, a Democratic-Republican newspaper. Bache had accused George Washington of incompetence and financial irregularities, and “the blind, bald, crippled, toothless, querulous Adams” of nepotism and monarchical ambition. He was arrested in 1798 under the Sedition Act, but he died of yellow fever before trial.

How do you like that? Apparently there were some “financial irregularities” that old George was none too happy about being aired in the press. Remind you of Hillary and Bill and their whole foundation shakedown scam? It should. The game is the same, only thing that’s changed are the names of the players my friend. Here’s another example of a Crime they prosecuted.

In November 1798, David Brown led a group in Dedham, Massachusetts in setting up a liberty pole with the words, “No Stamp Act, No Sedition Act, No Alien Bills, No Land Tax, downfall to the Tyrants of America; peace and retirement to the President; Long Live the Vice President”.

Look at what his “crime” was! Setting up a pole with words on it? Drink in the freedom baby. Look at what he was complaining about. The exact same things we don’t like TODAY. There is no difference. You don’t see that it is all the same because they wore powdered wigs and knickers. So you think the holy founding fathers were something they were NOT.

Brown was arrested in Andover, Massachusetts, but because he could not afford the $4,000 bail, he was taken to Salem for trial.

The liberty pole remains and important part of American culture today.

The liberty pole, first made famous during the early years of our country, is no longer illegal.  And it remains and important part of American culture and political life today.  Many women are drawn to the platform as a way to “put themselves through school”.  The uses for the pole have continued to expand, which is just another testament to the freedom we have in this country.  

So the same crooked government he didn’t like is prosecuting and trying him and then sets his bail so high that he can’t pay it to be released pending trial. Bail set at twice the MAXIMUM fine. Lol. Utter kangaroo court.  Treating the man as though he was a mass murderer or serial rapist who might run from the law. IT is outrageous.

The man put up a “liberty pole” with some words on it complaining about the government’s corruption for pete’s sake. A government that we are told represents us and that we supposedly consent to and that is the greatest freedom machine ever created! What a sad joke.

They set his bail at about 500K in today’s dollars! Think about that.

Brown was tried in June 1799. Brown pled guilty but Justice Samuel Chase asked him to name others who had assisted him. Brown refused, was fined $480,and sentenced to eighteen months in prison, the most severe sentence ever imposed under the Sedition Act.

So the judge tried to force him to snitch after he pled guilty to the railroad job he couldn’t afford to defend himself against. When he wouldn’t rollover on other people, bam, they brought the hammer down on him. Fined him about a year’s salary. Where is the protection of the courts? Where is the first amendment? Where is the freedom just 9 years after the constitution was ratified??

Oh, and that holy judge abusing this man.  The “honorable” justice Chase.  The guy shaking the citizen down for daring to complain about his crooked government.  That guy.  He was a signatory to the declaration of independence!!! A justice on the supreme court!! Think of the depths of the hypocrisy of this man! A man with NO SHAME. No wonder people wanted to rail against the government. This same judge was later impeached by the opposite party.  This is the reality of our holy founding.  Partisan politics by men seeking power by whatever means they had.

Beer was very popular in early America. Here, justice Chase is shown relaxing after a long day on the bench.

Beer was very popular in early America. Here, justice Chase is shown relaxing after a long day on the bench shaking down citizens.

So Why doesn’t the government still use these tactics? Simple, because they have figured out that such a straightforward assault on the people is NOT effective. It is too easy to spot. Too easy for people to be upset by it. Too much push back. Better to do it surreptitiously while giving lip service to freedom. They learned their lesson. So they changed tactics.

You don’t know any of this because the people have allowed the government to seize control of the education system to supposedly HELP the people “learn” about their history.

So where was the freedom during our holy founding? It was nowhere people. Just like it is nowhere today. They listen in on your calls. They seize your money. They tell you how much water you can flush in your toilet.  They keep track of every financial transaction. You have to keep every receipt. They tax every dollar you make or earn at whatever rate their care to, and on and on. What does it take for you to see that the freedom you have is an illusion.

The only reason you can get away with something is because they don’t care to come get you! That is it. If they came for me what could I do? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Just like you. This is the power they wield.

My point is simple. It has NEVER been any different in this country. Any pretense of freedom or rights or anything else is a charade. A farce. An illusion sold to the masses to keep them happy and keep them from catching on, so they don’t rise up. Nothing more.

If people were taught the truth they could not be controlled so easily. Fooled so easily. Thus they are taught lies in the mandatory education with their mandatory curriculum and through the controlled media.

The government does whatever it can get away with at all times. The men in office cannot be trusted. The answer does not lie in “getting back to the constitution”. How much farther back can we go than 1798, just 9 years after it was ratified??

Our freedoms have inspired people all over the world. Here this man demonstrates how easy it is to find your rights. All you have to do is point to where you find them. Just like with our constitution.

Our freedoms have inspired people all over the world. This man demonstrates the proper way to assert your rights under our constitution.  All you have to do is point to the amendment that applies.  If the card is there, then you win your right!  It seems so easy… but it isn’t.  

The answer lies in getting rid of as much government as possible and waking people to the reality of what this country is and has been.

Oh, I know, Jefferson pardoned the people convicted a few YEARS later. Wow that’s awesome. I’m sure that made it all better. lol But remember, he didn’t even do that until he prosecuted a couple himself under the law!

The constitution is NOT an impediment to taking your freedoms. It is a way to fool you.  The example I just gave you has to show you that. If it doesn’t, then what could I bring you? How much more blatantly does the law have to violate the constitution to see that they do whatever they want. And that those who founded this country did the same things that the politicians do today.

They say one thing and do another. They talk about freedom and justice yet they pass laws like that. The founders were no different than the self seeking politicians of today. They were power hungry. They were perfectly content to abuse the people. They were perfectly content to ignore the constitution.

It is always the same. Those in charge do whatever they can get away with and say whatever it takes for people to believe the lies they tell. That is reality. All the other stuff is just wishful thinking by the naïve citizens projecting their own moral conscience onto men who do not share their scruples.

Until the people realize that talking about “getting back to the constitution” and all of the other romantic nonsense that fills their heads, can never fix the problem, they will continue to get the short end of the stick.

This guy kept mumbling in his sleep about how if you don't vote you can't complain. I didn't have the heart to wake him he seemed so happy.

This guy kept mumbling in his sleep about how if you don’t vote you can’t complain. I didn’t have the heart to wake him he seemed so happy.

If it wasn’t for the cathartic effect of getting it off my chest, I wouldn’t even bother writing about it. Why? Because most People don’t want the truth. They want a lie. People tell me all the time when I mention this type of thing that they don’t like thinking about it because they just want to “feel good” about their country. I just love that.  They prefer a set of lies that makes them feel good rather than a truth they can then build a better future upon.

Those seeking power are well aware of this propensity in the people.  So those in power give the people what they want.  Lies that they can “feel good about”. No wonder those who rule have such contempt for the people. The people earn that contempt in many ways.

The people have the power but they GIVE IT AWAY by preferring a fairy tale and a “good feeling” over the harsh reality of dealing with the truth. I can’t relate to the mindset, but I understand it is a reality.

I’m done for today. I can’t take it any more. I hope you learned something. Take care my brainwashed Brethren. Live in the light and tell someone the truth about the law.

And the truth shall set you free.

And the truth shall set you free.

    The elephant in the room here is the halachic-Talmudic-Noahide Communitarian color of law by so-called balancing that has incrementally supplanted Constitutional Rule of Law by Due Process by which we are supposed to be governed. The Anti-Communitarian League’s ACL Talmudic Law Page discusses this travesty in great detail. The remedies for this dilemma can be found in the Declaration of Independence, the Seventh Amendment, the Fifth Amendment, and Common Law Grand Jury Rules. It is a fundamental legal precept that Fraud Vitiates Everything it touches: Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus/False iin one, false in all, and therei s abundant case law to support this contention. The crucial action here is for the Fully Informed Common Law Grand Jury to change jurisdiction from that of Statutory Law to that of Common Law. Dissenting views are to be summarily rejected as defeatist, obstructionist, and malfeasant

    Legalman, sorry for the relatively late response but I want to thank you for this article. For the bulk of my life I had been taught about our wonderful Constitution and Bill of Rights. Like so many other books and documents, it seemed that “selected passages” are often quoted and one can get a very wrong interpretation until and unless these works in their entirety are read.

    School children have the sacredness of the Founding Fathers and their writings drummed into them almost as soon as they enter the school system. The press is always quoting those “passages”, many groups loudly proclaim how lucky we are to have them etc. etc. Now I am researching, looking for the truth and viewing these documents in the context of their time.

    I once had a history professor who told the class “Always ask yourself, upon reading an article, book-in fact, anything-who wrote it and why did they write it.” His words now ring true even more than they ever had.

    I now know why I NEVER heard of Benjamin Franklin Bache. It’s like he has almost been erased from our history unless one looks very closely for him. It seems he recognized early on the problems with the Constitution and the men who produced it. For that alone, he is somewhat of a hero to me.

      Never a worry about any lateness Thirteenth Child. I am just glad you enjoyed it. And you are quite right about questioning assumptions and facts. They have lied and lied to us so thoroughly that people don’t even know they are lied to. Like the poor saps in North Korea people love to laugh about. What’s funny to me is that the people here don’t understand they are just as wrongly educated, it is only a matter of a difference in the types of lies they were taught. Our holy founding and holy founding fathers along with every other thing, the wars and the money and the new deal and our “heroes” and on and on. Just a pack of lies top to bottom designed to support the status quo of financial powers. Nothing more. It is a hard truth to wake up to. As my friend is fond of reminding me, Mark Twain said, and I am only rough quoting, “it is much easier to fool a man, than it is to convince a man he has been fooled.” That is so true. People hate to admit they’ve been duped. take care hope to hear from you again sometime. — L

    Great article Legalman.

I just love that. They prefer a set of lies that makes them feel good rather than a truth they can then build a better future upon.”

    I am absolutely amazed how the vast majority of people buy into the mainstream media brainwashing. I’ve heard the term “cognitive dissonance” used to refer to this type of thinking.

    Bottom line, if you piss off the powers that be, they can always find a way to get you. For myself, I try to walk a fine line of pointing some things out to people that I think they can handle, while not becoming a too large threat to the system. Sort of reminds me of the analogy that the nail head that sticks too far out is the one that gets pounded down.

      Thanks for the comment IAmc. I have written often on the topic of cog dis. It is quite prevalent. I have studied it and psychological responses extensively. People really don’t want to know for the most part and that is what allows those in charge to manipulate it all so easily. You might enjoy some stuff in my fascinating other stuff by the KGB defector yuri bezmenov who just disappeared in the 90s. Or check out Robert cialdini in there. It’s true that the ptb’s can and do crush resistance that gets too much traction but it takes a lot of traction. And I am always sure to make it clear in my private conversations, that they are archiving, that I am more than happy to go away for a “nominal processing” fee. Lol.

    Some people give away their power, but others of us just can’t get any help to preserve our power or protect ourselves. Attorneys are very expensive and don’t want to hear the issues presented in your blog. Judges are corrupt and incompetent. The result is injustice, which allows the powerful, wealthy elite to prevail.

    So how do we escape the maze of lies? How can we use the system to our benefit – just like the “elite” use the system to their benefit?

    I read one author who advocates using the same structures as the “elite”. He suggests a C corporation to take advantage of all the corporate breaks. He says that we have been brainwashed to believe that full C corporations are too big and expensive and that we must not venture beyond an S corporation.

    The elite utilize the advantages of the system. They do well with their corporations, offshore subsidiaries, foundations, non-profits, religious institutions, secret campaign pacs, and a host of other “legal” structures. I’d like to find some help to overcome the injustice.

    So what is the solution? How can the average person protect themselves against the corrupt system?

Such a big question cannot be “answered” with a response that can begin to cover such a big topic. It’s like saying how do I practice law? Or how do I build the Suez Canal? Lol. Step one is read some more of what I have written and maybe ask a more directed and smaller question so I might be able to give a usable answer. Glad you are here — L

    An excellent tome on this is “Cracks in the Constitution” by Ferdinand Lundberg, an outstanding scholar. He shows in no uncertain terms that the Constitution notwithstanding, the Feral Guvmint has always done what it pleased, when it pleased, how it pleased. If any of the rabble think that voting is the remedy, I maintain that voting effectuates real change like pissing into the ocean affects the tide. Legalman is spot on as usual. Keep up the great work, even though most paytriotic hamericans are brain dead.

    Excellent article!
    George Washington was, unequivocally, the greatest man who ever lived; be that as it may, all our subsequent presidents have miserably failed to live up to his example. Indeed, the very oval office was created ad hoc for a man who only comes once every 10,000 years.

    I’d just like to point out, however, that James Madison was a DEMOCRAT, not a Federalist. The only president that the loutish Federalist party produced was John Adams (i.e., the one who signed the Sedition Act into law). A generation later, the barbarous Whig party gave us two presidents who only accelerated the hostilities between north and south. And now, in the 21st century, the superstitious, xenophobic, fanatically Christian, Republican party is trying to destroy our country through countless foreign wars, radical expansion of police power, and fostering of hatred and unrest.

    But rest assured, my fellow Americans. Just like we got rid of the Federalists and Whigs, the evil Republican party will soon meet its end, as well. When Texas do become majority Hispanic, there will simply no longer exist enough “red state” electoral votes to elect a Republican president, ever again.

    And America will, once again, return the founding principles of Madison, Jefferson, and Jackson!

      Glad you enjoyed it Twinpines. And let me say this about what you said about Madison. For clarification Madison who wrote the Federalist Papers and pushed for the constitution and is called the father of the constitution switched over and became a member of what was called the Democratic-Republican Party, technically. Started by Jefferson who was no a fan of the constitution, and drafted the Kentucky resolution about secession. Thus Madison pushed for the constitution, wrote as a federalist, then “changed” over to the “anti-federalist” side in name to pull yet more wool over the eyes. How do you push for the document, rally for it and then switch once it is ratified? How, because these men were just like every other politician. Whatever works for them they did. I left this explanation out because I didn’t want to add too much detail to the article because it just becomes confusing to people at some point. He was THE federalist who pushed for ratification. That was my point.
      I only chimed in here because I think the point of his absurd switching probably just demonstrates my ACTUAL point that much more. The man could not be trusted. He said and did whatever he thought would work at the time for whatever agenda he was pushing. We can agree to disagree about Washington. I believe the constitutional convention in Philly, which I wrote briefly about in my “The peoples’ case for what happened at the Constitutional convention” shows my point of view on the whole matter.
      Regardless, I hope this clarification shows that no matter how deep you dig, you will find the same thing I say all the time. Just men. Manipulating a system for their own purposes. All history that tries to glorify them as anything else is promoted for a current agenda of men. He who controls the past controls the future. and he who controls the present controls the past. To quote Orwell. Thus they manipulate what people imagine happened in the past with our founders to drive the bus forward. It is not hidden and it is not complicated.
      It is just that it depresses people, so they deny/ignore it. But denying something exists does not make it NOT exist. thus the people are controlled. And like I said. people show no sign of waking up. And thus is it is easy to recruit for those who care to take advantage. Best of luck.– L

      Thank you Park for reposting. Very few people bother to do much of anything. lol. I made peace with that. But if people want to get the word out they need to repost things they like. Scouter is great, stumbleupon is great, anything is great so long as people read it. The reality is that people can only be shown what they can handle. Sure they may see something else, but it won’t register or they will deny it or ignore it or forget it. We few, we band of brothers, we have to stick together. For our own sanity if nothing else. lol — L

        Legalman, my friend you write from your heart – honest and thoughtful. This one qualifies for the ‘Master Piece’ designation. A Great work.

        This article has also been saved on the permanent (Significant News & Articles) section at The News Scoute.

        The objective is to promote the information – the truth. Soon, people will recognize it and accept it.

        On the path of truth, let’s join hands and support each other.

        Thank you.

          Well thank you for the kind words Park. I toil for humanity… and my own sanity. And yes, I do write from the heart, which is a small piece of coal I had transplanted into the center of my chest some years back so I don’t draw attention when I go through the screening machine at the airport. lol, take care — L

    Legalman, you still believe in the innate goodness of man. That all would be wonderful if people just would see the light. But as one of your commenters pointed out “force make right and force makes wrong” or maybe not those exact words, but that is the truth, too. People will manipulate the truth to their benefit as you so painfully point out. So which force will win?

      Well Georgia, I don’t think it is possible to “win or lose”. It all rolls in cycles. It is quite obvious which part of the cycle we are in right now. lol. The question becomes, what can you do to end or reverse the cycle and preserve information necessary to regain the upper hand? I suspect we are slumming it at or near the Nadir right about now and we don’t show any signs of pulling out. But as I have said and said. The key is your own mind. The key is changing minds. And everyone can change their own mind. And everyone can do their part to affect the minds that they are close to.
      But I disagree that Force makes right or wrong. Force can merely coerce compliance. Nothing more. And any coercion shines a light on how unpersuasive the argument actually is. thus Forced compliance can never “win the day” ultimately because it requires constant attention to maintain it over the population because it is NOT wanted. Only voluntary agreement can ever actually ultimately “succeed” to the extent that phrase means anything, because voluntary agreement requires no oversight. And that is why they spend so much time brainwashing people. So that the people mistakenly VOLUNTARILY agree to something they don’t understand. It really is just that simple. Take care. — L

          Thanks Crocodile. I am glad you enjoy my comments. When I feel compelled to write a response, I don’t take the time it does for an article, but the same thought process is used of course. And you are right. The answers lie in each person’s mind and controlling that. But that is a very complicated topic, and of course I am “not an expert” so people wouldn’t accept my opinions on that topic. So I stick with the legal stuff. At least for now. lol — L

    The Constitution of September 17, 1787 was flawed on day one. The illusion was to make the people believe that this was going to be the Law of the People.
    On May 25th 1787, in the City of Philadelphia, at the Pennsylvania State House, what is now called the Constitutional Convention convened to consider, pursuant to a resolution passed by the Confederation Congress whether to revise or amend the Articles of Confederation.

    The Organic Law of the United States of America is law for States not people. The Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 was written and enacted into Organic Law just so that the Constitutional Convention could draft a Constitution that appeared to apply to Americans not in the Northwest Territory.

    We the People as identified in the Preamble does not refer to the People that inhabitated the 13 States of “the Union”.

    We were not a party to the Constitution of 9/17/1787 and are not bound by it. This is well established fact.

    The Cult of Constitution is the belief that the Constitution of 9/17/1787 enumerates rights and other protections to Americans on non-Federal Territory and it does not.

    The Organic Law of the United States of America is law for States not people. The Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 was written and enacted into Organic Law just so that the Constitutional Convention could draft a Constitution that appeared to apply to Americans not in the Northwest Territory. The Constitution of 9/17/1787 made permanent the NW Ordinance.
