Declaring Independence from the Enemy Within
by Dennis Jamison 7/2/19
Have you ever had someone lie to your face, and pretend they were telling the absolute truth?
Have you ever had someone at work shift blame to you or someone else in order to not get into trouble, and for which they should have taken responsibility?
Have you ever witnessed someone being accused of wrongdoing unfairly because of personal jealousy or resentment against the accused person?
Americans often see or witness these types of actions on a regular basis. And, for better or for worse, citizens put up with all kinds of unfair “crap” almost every day. And, some Americans are singled out on a regular basis in such ways. That is actually called discrimination. When it is racially motivated, it is called racism. When it is religiously motivated, it is called religious intolerance.
But when it is politically motivated, it is just called “politics as usual,” and since politics is just another form of warfare, “all is fair in love and war.” Right? No, that is absolutely wrong – in more ways than one!
While people, in general, are fairly restrained and tolerant of others in their day to day existence, the political arena is a very different social phenomenon. It has been said that war is simply the continuation of politics by other means. This is attributed to Carl von Clausewitz, the Prussian general and military strategist who wrote the classic book, “On War,” published in 1832. In the book, he devoted an entire chapter to the notion that “War is a mere continuation of policy by other means.” The point he was making can be seen in this sentence: “We see, therefore, that War is not merely a political act, but also a real political instrument, a continuation of political commerce, a carrying out of the same by other means.”
Simply put, when the efforts of civil political discourse and activity do not suit a particular faction within the political arena, there is a breakdown of the process aimed at obtaining a very specific political result or outcome. However, what if such a faction decides that politics is merely war disguised as a type of civil political activity?
In political strife, as in war, there are usually clearly defined objectives to pursue to eventually obtain one or more specific goals. Who then, would be the loser if that were the case in the United States, the “Land of the Free,” the government of the people, by the people, and for the people?”
The answer is simple: the People. Clausewitz wrote his book in the period just after the Napoleonic rampages through Europe. It did not take into account the War for Independence of the American people. However, the Declaration of Independence describes a breakdown of what Clausewitz could understand. Sadly, most Americans (including those politicians who are supposedly the political leaders) are not familiar with most of the Declaration of Independence:
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good…
(what follows is Jefferson’s description of the points of breakdown)
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace, Friends.
Most Americans on this Independence Day would not make a connection between the time of the Founding and the present. However, in the United States today, there is one political faction that has repeatedly abused the fundamental principles that were expressed in this basic foundation for the “Land of the Free.” That faction does not simply reside in one political party as the political system that has evolved over time is simply the political elitist class that believes they know best for the people, and there should be no question of their authority. It is not just the Democrats vs. the Republicans that are readying for the upcoming 2020 elections. It is “We the People” vs. that criminal political cabal that has grown and has metastasized like a cancer within the nation.
Today, the criminal political cabal strives to remain hidden within the social strata of the nation like cancer remains hidden in a healthy body until it is discovered, and by then it is often too late to render a cure of such an insidious disease. Yet, in the 2016 election, elements of this criminal cabal surfaced. Some came out of the closet to formulate the “Never Trumpers” among the very GOP that would benefit from winning the election. Some, more obvious, came from the shadow realms to oppose Donald Trump after he was elected. Some were recruited from different areas of the respected society: the mainstream media moguls and their minions, the pampered elitists from Hollywood, and even young people who had never fully learned the history, purpose, and value of the United States. Some were called up to take to the streets and manifest their hatred in a very public way – the latest version of the Brown Shirts or the Black Shirts of Europe.
So, if you have ever been offended by someone lying to you and pretending they were telling the absolute truth, there is now a cancerous criminal cabal in our nation that has no qualms with doing it on a regular basis. It may have been one of the infamous dictators in the 20th century that said, “if you repeat a lie often enough, it will ultimately be accepted as the truth.” But, this is the current mode of operation of the criminal political cabal.
If you get upset when someone shifts blame in order to not get into trouble, and in the aftermath of something they should have taken responsibility, note that operatives of the criminal political cabal have been discovered in the Deep State attempting to overthrow a legitimate election. Not only this has been discovered via documented evidence, but the criminals are still walking about freely as if they did nothing wrong. Not only this is happening, but the coverup is continuing to this day. The criminals are shifting the blame to the current Administration, the ones who are in the Justice Department who remain true to the rule of law, and to the general public who value the rule of law in a civil society.
Americans are witnessing these types of actions in the political arena on a regular basis. And, for better or for worse, “all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” And, American citizens are being singled out on a regular basis for supporting the ones who are holding fast to the principles at the bedrock of the nation. Not only are members of the Trump Administration being attacked, but regular Americans are also being attacked simply for the public expression of their views. Even young people!
This is actual discrimination. And “all is NOT fair in love and war.” The elitist political class, the criminal political cabal, has violated sacred values of the American People. The criminal political cabal has demonstrated time and again they have no use for the Law of the Land. They have “refused… Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good…”
And, the real abuses are not being reported to the American citizens by the very institution that is under the protection of the Constitution: the mainstream media. It has long ago lost its purpose for existence. While “Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
A Party, or faction, like the current agents of the political cabal that has such Leviathan-like power over a people, and whose agents reflect characters that are “marked by every act which may define a Tyrant… are unfit to be the ruler of a free people.” The “Democratic” Party and the members of the GOP Elitist class have long ago lost their purpose for serving a free people. It is time the citizens truly declare their Independence and separate from such useless, harmful, and cancerous elements within the nation. To take action is to declare Independence in word and deed. It is indeed that time, for Freedom itself is imperiled by an enemy from within.
