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:
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 people. I 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.
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.
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.
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.
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??
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.
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.
