The Sovereign Citizen Movement is now listed as a domestic terrorist threat. What’s next? Really? What’s next? Reading the Constitution silently in your bed, under the blanket, with a flashlight? This ranks right up there with flag.gov.
The Climate of Fear marches on. It is so time to clean house.
Today, we look at a third threat—the “sovereign citizen” extremist movement.Sovereign citizens are anti-government extremists who believe that even though they physically reside in this country, they are separate or “sovereign” from the United States. As a result, they believe they don’t have to answer to any government authority, including courts, taxing entities, motor vehicle departments, or law enforcement.
This causes all kinds of problems—and crimes. For example, many sovereign citizens don’t pay their taxes. They hold illegal courts that issue warrants for judges and police officers. They clog up the court system with frivolous lawsuits and liens against public officials to harass them. And they use fake money orders, personal checks, and the like at government agencies, banks, and businesses.
That’s just the beginning. Not every action taken in the name of the sovereign citizen ideology is a crime, but the list of illegal actions committed by these groups, cells, and individuals is extensive (and puts them squarely on our radar).

Go here for our list of what qualifies as a domestic terrorist.
We’ve been waiting for the second of many shoes to drop which will include the next round of residential mortgage resets AND the bottom falling out of the commercial real estate market. It appears some guys way more fluent in the aspects of the monetary problem (because they created it) are a bit edgy themselves. At what point can we abolish The Fed and get the entire concept of central banks (and the government credit card) out of our wallets? (Did you know that the FBI considers Americans that call themselves ‘sovereigns’ to be terrorists? I’ll save that for another post.)
FRANKFURT — Despite recent improvements in the health of European banks, they remain vulnerable to a daunting array of hazards that are expected to produce another round of sizable write-offs during the next couple of years, the European Central Bank said Monday, in a report that cataloged in alarming detail the problems facing the region’s financial institutions.
The challenges for banks in the 16-nation euro zone include exposure to a weakening commercial real estate market, hundreds of billions of euros in bad debts, economic problems in East European countries, and a potential collision between the banks’ own substantial refinancing needs and government demand for additional loans, the central bank said. (emphasis mine)
In its twice-yearly review of risks facing the nations that use the euro currency, the central bank expressed particular concern about banks’ need to refinance long-term debt of an estimated 800 billion euros, or $984 billion, by the end of 2012.
Borrowing costs could rise as the banks compete with governments in the bond market, “making it challenging to roll over a sizable amount of maturing bonds by the end of 2012,” the report said.
It’s coming kids. You know it in your gut. I’m expecting the dominoes to start falling sometime this month.
This is one of those situations where I will never get over saying “We Told You So!”. I know, it’s cold and manner-less, but considering the devastation that has been wrought on our economy, society, and our childrens’ future – it’s the only comfort most of us have right now. The political class in this country has to be reined in because their judgment leaves quite a bit to be desired.
(CNN) — Enough is enough! After the latest failure by BP to plug the gaping hole, it is time for President Obama to take full command of this growing national catastrophe. Immediately!
The president in his press conference this past Thursday assured the nation that he and his administration were already in charge and he has manfully taken personal responsibility — “the buck stops here,” he said, echoing Harry Truman. Well, it may be true that BP has been acting all along under the oversight of the federal government, but that supervision has been loose and ineffective.
To the world, it has been apparent that the government has been riding shotgun and BP has been at the wheel. It’s time for the White House to get in the driver’s seat and get us to safety — fast.
Meanwhile, no longer is the Exalted One seeing dead servicemen in the audience, he wants to commemorate our fallen soldiers through ‘deeds’. Time to put the pipe down, Mr. pResident.
Do you think Mr. Gergen over at CNN is feeling better or worse now?
(Editor’s Note: “Or How To Really Upset The Military By Not Visiting Arlington Cemetery. This must be more of that hopey-changey sh**.)
President Obama called Saturday for Americans to honor their countrymen who have died in war, saying that Memorial Day should be marked by “doing our part for the loved ones our fallen heroes have left behind and looking after our military families.”
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama said, “We are called to honor their ultimate sacrifice with more than words. We are called to honor them with deeds.”
“By making sure the men and women serving this country around the world have the support they need to achieve their missions and come home safely,” he said. “By making sure veterans have the care and assistance they need. In short, by serving all those who have ever worn the uniform of this country – and their families – as well as they have served us.”
Obama is spending the holiday weekend in Chicago, his home town, and will visit the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery on Memorial Day.
But some critics, most of them politically conservative, have complained that he is not visiting Arlington National Cemetery, the traditional focal point for Memorial Day events. He did so last year.
Here’s a question; are they moving the Capitol to Chicago? (H/T KG)
Collectivism: Collectivist paradigms state that it is impossible to show with any degree of precision what the contribution of an individual is, and all artifacts and accomplishments must be regarded as the result of a group effort.
Collectivism: 1 : a political or economic theory advocating collective control especially over production and distribution; also : a system marked by such control 2 : emphasis on collective rather than individual action or identity
This Memorial Day, considering the current division that is widening in our nation between the American concept of individual rights and personal responsibility, and the socialist group-think, I thought a similar segment to last year’s ‘A Rebuttal To The Apology Tour’ was in order to remind us of what makes America different and why it became the greatest nation in the world. Our military does what no other does because they understand freedom better than any of us and are willing to lay down their lives for the innocent.
This article is NOT for the faint of heart or weak of stomach.
The Legacy of Collectivism from Marxism, Communism, Nazism to “Radical Islam” stretches far back in history, but as Americans, we have been involved in combating it for approximately a century starting with the Serbian-Austrian dustup that dragged us into WWI with an American death toll of 116,516. The insanity of Hitler’s National Socialist German Worker’s Party created another 405,399 American deaths. The Korean war cost us 36,576 lives, and the Vietnam War cost us 58,169; the Gulf War after Saddam’s aggression toward Kuwait, 529. The Iraq war created 4,400, and combat in Afghanistan has reached 1,087.
Collectivism has now entered the White House, the Congress, and the Supreme Court via progressive socialists that hide behind the names Democrat, Republican, and Independent.
What follows is a reminder of what collectivist thinking achieves; the murder of millions of innocents because they will not conform to the ‘greater good’ philosophy of marxists, communists, fascists, and socialists.
WARNING: INCREDIBLY GRAPHIC IMAGES OF COLLECTIVIST GENOCIDE THROUGH THE LAST 100 YEARS.
I have been asked by more than a couple of readers to re-post this article from last year on this day when we honor our fallen heroes. The inspiration for the article was the apology tour that Barry continues with his bowing and scraping to just about everybody but Americans.
I have another article that I have been working on that will be published today which (in my humble opinion) states the reason why we see so many of these white crosses all over the world. Look for it later today.
A reader of this blog, Nancy, left a comment on the previous post but was unable to put what follows into comments. I have added some background, and you will be able to find more pics here.
20 Examples of American Arrogance
In alphabetical order
1. The American Cemetery at Aisne-Marne, France
The 42.5-acre Aisne-Marne Cemetery and Memorial in France, its headstones lying in a sweeping curve, sits at the foot of the hill where stands Belleau Wood. The cemetery contains the graves of 2,289 war dead, most of whom fought in the vicinity and in the Marne valley in the summer of 1918. The memorial chapel sits on a hillside, decorated with sculptured and stained-glass details of wartime personnel, equipment and insignia. Inscribed on its interior wall are 1,060 names of the missing. Rosettes mark the names of those since recovered and identified. During World War II, the chapel was damaged slightly by an enemy shell.
2. The American Cemetery at Ardennes, Belgium
We are arrogant.
The 90-acre cemetery contains the graves of 5,329 of our military dead, many of whom died in the 1944 Ardennes winter offensive (Battle of the Bulge). The headstones are aligned in straight rows that form a Greek cross on the lawns and are framed by tree masses. The cemetery served as the location of the Central Identification Point for the American Graves Registration Service of the War Department during much of the life of the Service.
It is common knowledge that the MSM that went over to the dark side early in the 20th century are now openly pushing the progressive meme of collectivism through erasure of borders and bias against the American exceptionalism of the greatest generation. Perfect examples of their allegiance to TPTB can be found in the stories covering the immigration marches for and against SB1070 this past Saturday in Phoenix. Fortunately, the alternative media, in this case, American Power was on the scene to photograph the actual occurrences of extremism including socialists, anarchists, and illegals.
First, a few tidbits from the lapdogs of the progressive power-brokers.
At the rally in favor of the law, which began with the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem, any mention of Mexico or supporters of the law brought lusty boos — a video clip of President Felipe Calderón of Mexico especially fired up the crowd, which was mostly white and middle-aged or older. Placards like “Illegals out of the U.S.A.” were typical, though speaker after speaker ridiculed the idea that the crowd was racist. (emphasis mine)
Lt. Col. Allen West spoke to the South Florida 912 group on 5.27.2010 reiterating ‘principles over politics’, and empowering the American people instead of enslaving them.
Ed Fulop introduced Lt. Col. Allen West – our keynote speaker and candidate for Congressional District 22. While many in the audience had heard Allen before, all of us needed to hear him reiterate his cautionary message on our need to be Lions and act! He tailored his talk to this week’s events and encouraged us to participate in the 5 months remaining before the election. He made us proud to be Americans and with our actions, the future can be bright!
Lt. Col. Allen West:
“No matter what people try to say in Washington DC, we are not a nation of cowards. We are not people who are afraid.”
If you want to contribute to the death of the Climate of Fear, get off your couches, attend a tea party, and start speaking out. If you wish to donate to Allen West’s campaign, go here.
..but in 2010, an offender of Islam is buried shoulder deep and stoned:
Wake up America! Islam is on the march and using your American principles of ‘live and let live’ against you. Knowing your enemy is the first step to defeating your enemy.
“Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.” “Let your plans be dark and as impenetratable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.” “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.” “Know your enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster.”
– Sun Tzu
Do not fool yourselves into thinking that Islam will ever allow American principles to stand separate and apart from the muslim world if it is allowed to islamize our country. Islam does not and cannot allow freedom of speech or freedom of religion because, despite powerful propaganda from the media, Islam is the religion of subjugation – not peace.
Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona is currently fielding five federal lawsuits against SB1070 in two of which she is also named. Her AG, refuses to represent her, and she is now retaining private council to fight the globalists who are absolutely beside themselves that somebody is enforcing federal immigration law. If you have not read about Honduras suing the State Of Arizona, you may want to go here, and then send a check to the governor.
What is the NWO to do with all of us sheeple who have our heads screwed on straight and are WIDE AWAKE, and PAYING ATTENTION while (insert your own phrase here).
The Governor’s Border Security and Immigration Legal Defense Fund is up and running and it is now time to pony up folks. Every single issue and electoral race is a national referendum now, and it is time to disseminate this information as far and wide as possible to send, yet again, another message to the freaks in Washington, D.C. that WE ARE COMING for them.
PHOENIX – With pollsters finding most Arizona voters back SB 1070, Gov. Jan Brewer is offering those folks a chance to let their wallets speak for them.
The new immigration enforcement law is under siege, facing at least five federal lawsuits. So Brewer has started a legal defense fund to pay a private lawyer, given what her spokesman described as Attorney General Terry Goddard’s half-hearted commitment to defend the bill and his refusal to defend Brewer, who is named in the lawsuits, at all.
…Or Did BP Just Create A Public Relations Nightmare?
It appears that British Petroleum hired between 300-400 workers just for Bambi’s visit on Friday, and when the pResident took off for vacation, so did the extra workers. If this is true, and it does have the ‘looks like a duck’ paradigm working, BP just shot themselves in the head with a very large caliber weapon.
(CNN) — A Gulf Coast official accused BP of shipping workers into Grand Isle, Louisiana, for President Barack Obama’s visit to the oil-stricken area Friday and sending them away once the president left the region.
Early Friday morning, “a number of buses brought in approximately 300 to 400 workers that had been recruited all week,” Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts told CNN’s “Situation Room.”
Roberts said the workers were offered $12 an hour to come out to the scene at Grand Isle and work in what he called a “dog and pony show.”
But, when Obama departed, so did the workers, he said, adding that he’s never seen more than 20 workers at the Grand Isle cleanup site since the effort started.
