I want to know why  the term ‘Militia’ in the 2nd Amendment of our United States Constitution has become a dirty word in our culture and politics. It is because of the 2nd Amendment that the Japanese Army refused to invade the Continental United States during World War II. The Japanese  Army was terrified that every home and dwelling would be bristling with guns to protect our country in a time of war. And they couldn’t have been more correct in their assessment. The State Militias were mobilized during WW I and WW II to protect our Homeland while our young and brave soldiers,  sailors, and airmen carried the war to our enemies’ very shores and boarders.

“The reserve militia or unorganized militia, also created by the Militia Act of 1903 which presently consist of every able-bodied man of at least 17 and under 45 years of age who are not members of the National Guard or Naval Militia.(that is, anyone who would be eligible for a draft). Former members of the armed forces up to age 65 are also considered part of the “unorganized militia” per Sec 313 Title 32 of the US Code.”

However, the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, provides for an unorganized militia of every able-bodied man and woman to be ready to defend the Homeland against any threat both domestic and foreign. This Amendment predates, and thus supersedes,  all Acts of Congress; especially the United States National Security Act, the establishment of the United States Department of Homeland Security, and the United States Patriot Act. Because the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution has never been amended by the tenants of the Constitution of the United States of America it supersedes all State and Federal laws and acts. The States are therefore empowered, under the Constitution, to organize militias to protect State’s rights as granted by the Constitution of the United States of America and to protect the principles set forth by the Declaration of Independence

“A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Article II Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States of America states:

“The President shall be Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in the executive Departments, upon any Subject on the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.”

President John Adams, President Thomas Jefferson, and President James Madison make it perfectly clear in their communications that the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States is to guarantee each State’s individual rights to keep an unorganized militia which may be mobilized as an organized militia to protect the Constitution of the United States of America and to protect the sovereignty of each State and the United States of America as guaranteed by Article II Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States of America. That anyone, including the President, Vice-President, Executive Branch, Congressional Branch, or Judicial Branch of the United States Government may be considered as enemies of the “State”  if they exceed their powers as granted under the Constitution of the United States of America.

“And no law enacted by the Congress of the United States or the legislatures of said States shall supersede the rights of the citizens of these said States to form unorganized militias to protect and serve the Constitution of the United States to preserve our rights as stated in the Declaration of Independence.”

In order for the States of our Union to organize militias in a time of emergency it is imperative  each State guarantee a citizen’s access to any and all arms deemed necessary to meet the imperative threats for the security of said State’s citizens. The threat of individual rights and liberties in the United States has never been in greater peril from threats, both domestic and foreign. The growth and scope of the United States National Security Agency‘s powers to obstruct and invade our personal freedoms and privacy is unparalleled in our Nation’s history.

The States lost their rights of sovereignty when President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated  and the Union ceased being a Republic and the United States of America became the Federated States of America. The Federal Government was born and the States lost most of their rights as granted under the Constitution of the United States of America.

Then on July 26, 1947, President Harry S. Truman signed the National Security Act which stripped the States and individuals of most of their rights as granted under the Constitution. The Act was ratified by Congress on September 18, 1947 and enacted the formation of the Central Intelligence Agency from the newly formed Office of Special Operations, (the OSO evolved from the Army’s Office of Strategic Services and the Central Intelligence Group), as well as, the United States Air Force from the Army Air Corp as separate services. History tells us the National Security Act was signed by the President aboard Air Force One, nearly two months prior to the ratification of the Act by Congress. How could Air Force One exist nearly two months before the Act was actually ratified and officially created the United States Air Force?

Another question I have is “Why was the National Security Act signed by President Truman just twenty days after the Roswell UFO Incident?” What was so terrifying about the Roswell UFO Incident that the US Government felt a need to take such a Draconian action?

After 9/11 the USA Patriot Act was signed into law granting the Federal Government even more power while stripping States and individuals of more rights. The assault on our individual freedoms continue today as drones are used to spy on US citizens without due process as the U.S. strides closer to a police state.


New Jersey Governor Chris Christie must be wondering what is wrong with his fellow Republican Congressional Representatives as they stall Sandy Storm reparation and re-building funds for his irate and angered constituents who have waited nearly two months for direly needed relief aid.

The current chain of events show how little influence the House Speaker Boehner has over his Republican Congress. The Republicans are in a state of complete disarray as they bicker, back stab, and continue their in-fighting with each other over serious Congressional Funding issues.

A Great Republican President once stated that no house divided can long stand. And so Abraham Lincoln’s great wisdom goes unheeded as Congress becomes a quagmire of inaction, lacking in civility and charity.

Republican Conservative John W. Dean is deeply vexed by a party which has become “Conservatives Without a Conscience”. The recent $9 Billion stop-gap bill to provide badly needed relief to Sandy Storm victims falls far short of the $60 Billion required for rebuilding and subsidizing a recovery for storm victims, who are suffering physically, mentally, and the indignity of not being valued American citizens.

Today, Conservative Fundamentalist Republicans scorn President Ronald Reagan and both father and son George H.W. Bush’s and George W. Bush’s fiscal spending policies, while resolutely quiet about President Bill Clinton‘s fiscal spending policies. I wonder how these “fiscally responsible Republicans” would have felt about President Eisenhower‘s funding of the National Interstate Highway System which has paid for itself a hundred times over for itself. Construction was authorized by the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956, and the original portion was completed 35 years later. The cost of construction has been estimated at $425 billion (in 2006 dollars).

I doubt any of these “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans” realize how close they are to being “Fascist  Capitalists” like those who supported Francisco Franco y Bahamonde, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

I can only wonder what the “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans” “final solution” will be for the Sandy Storm Victims. Right now they are $51 Billion shy of the beginning of a real solution.

What would Founding Father, President Thomas Jefferson have done with these “Neo-Fiscal-Fascist Republicans”? He probably would have put them under an Executive Order of Arrest for deliberately endangering American lives.

President Obama’s only alternative may be to declare a “State of National Emergency” in New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut and force Congress to allocate the required relief funds or suffer Executive Order’s to have the Department of Justice to bring suit to the Supreme Court accusing Congress for endangering our National Security! President John Quincy Adams would not have hesitated to take said action under such circumstances.
