THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD

Editorial by Doug Cook

The Keyboard is Mightier than the Gun

(Jan. 8, 2010) — I have been trying to think of a good story about the unsung heroes of liberty, you folks who post on blogs and media sites around the worldwide web.

If you who bravely express your concerns, your heartfelt emotions and patriotism for God and Country have any doubt as to your efforts having an effect on the issues you hold dear, read on.  You must understand just how valuable what you have to say is; the fact that you have something to say is so important that your doing so may be the one thing that peacefully saves our country.

It is a no-brainier as to why the Amerikan nomenklatura wishes to quash freedom of speech through control of the  Internet. The old media, the movie industry and our centers of learning have all been corrupted and subverted to the ways of the left. The Internet is the last bastion of liberty remaining. Information is the single largest threat to the old media’s doctrine of absolute rule and control of the wealth and riches of the most prosperous nation the world has ever known.

The worldwide web is one of the most feared aspects to continued existence and ultimate survival of the elitist rulers. It is understood in absolute terms among the apparatchik throughout  upper-crust think tanks and Bilderberg clubhouses, by puppets and sacrificial goats from a counterfeit president to installment in NY 23 race and subsequent defection of Dede Scarifarous, to a test run of voting fraud in same election, to justices who block redress of unconstitutional acts, and the perpetrators of climate scam.  There are few isolated, unrelated incidents in the politics of our times. Politics are the trade craft of the agents of espionage, the wet work performed for those in lofty positions of a small elite class of very wealthy powerful individuals.

Guns and ammo in the hands of the people have been back-burnered to the threat that the Internet poses.

The web, the astounding vehicle of free speech and dissension it has become, its rapid rise unforeseen, is the 5000-pound gorilla in the room.  Once the Internet is shut down, then taking the guns out of the hands of the people is a cake walk. Note how these liberties are supreme constitutional amendments. They are numbers 1 and 2 in the Bill of Rights, respectively. It was no accident that our founders considered both of these liberties to be so closely linked that they support each other in the most fundamental understanding of freedoms.

For all practical purposes, the U.S. Constitution itself is essentially inviolate and cannot be altered due to requirements of majority vote to effect a constitutional amendment. But it can be back-doored, outflanked through the use of “regulation,” by legal system stonewalling and  bureaucratic rule. Obfuscation and subterfuge, political sleight of hand, and before anyone knows, bingo — you just lost another liberty.  Proof positive that, sans your health care and EPA ruling, your breath is a toxic gas (no insult intended).  Removing one word from the Clean Waters Act, omitting the word “navigable” from “navigable waters” now permits OUR government to determine that the mud puddle in your driveway is home to some critter which they placed on an endangered species list in order to divest you of the sovereign ownership of your land.

The assault on your arse is rather painful. Here is a list if you need clarification:  your land, your job, your retirement, your body, your health, your children’s education, your choice of vehicle, your health insurance, your choice of entertainment, your food, your right to defend yourself, the very air you breathe, all of these things:  your choices are now controlled by YOUR government, all courtesy of a thousand or so people who have decided what YOU will have and not have. What is good for YOU. And now the worldwide web will be controlled by Our socialistic, one-world-order, proxy government. When that becomes a reality, even who YOU vote for will be controlled because there will be no way to talk about it or discover alternatives to what Your government decides is best for You. What’s next? YOUR dignity and pride? Your soul? If You go to heaven or hell? There won’t be much left for You at the rate things are going.

So do you see? Do YOU understand just how important flappin’ those gums is? I do, which is why I’m writing this.

The timeless proverb of the pen as mightier than the sword is truth to power like never before in history.

Watch closely as events unfold.  The assault on free speech is under way, mechanisms that will solidify statist control being put into place as I write this. Look to the authors of legislation created to enable government takeover of every aspect of our lives:  Rockefeller, Boxer, Soros, Pelosi, and Saudi princes, to name only a few. These people are from some of the wealthiest, most elite and corrupt families in the world, the centers of power that are acting to take the power of we the people.

Make no mistake, greed and avarice, the fuel of those who wish for ever more power, are a result of two fundamental human evils: control over others and money.  These minions of darkness have no compunction against committing injustices against any and all in the interest of more wealth and power for themselves. No heart or courage resides in these people; they are imposters and false prophets of what is good for You.  For them the end always justifies the means. Why do you suppose they are rich and powerful in the first place?

What do men with power and money want? More power and money. “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Today you are a victim of these forces of evil intent. All across our land, we are experiencing a malaise which is multi-pronged, from staggering unemployment, ever-increasing costs for the most basic needs, the stampede of corporate manufacturing and innovation to other nations, economy-crushing national debt, attempted government control of medical care, loss of sovereignty over your land; all while the mainstream media, whose singular purpose is to be a propaganda arm of dissimulation and distraction from the elite’s dirty tricks and ultimate destiny of subjugation of we the people into a nation of servitude, keeps the elites rich and powerful.

This is war, brothers and sisters. The cold war between good and evil has come home to roost. The faces of repressive rule have been changed from Soviet-supported socialism to wealthy, greedy citizens of Your country.

Look around, scan your horizon. Do you see any liberty or wealth or self-determination being created? Where is your prosperity? Who has the well-paying jobs? Everywhere there is loss and stagnation for honest people. Take a look at the stock markets; who is making money? Is it you? Was it ever? Your investment tanked, your hard-won, honestly earned dollar was cannon fodder for blue sky wealth generals fighting for supremacy among other elitists. Your investment evaporated in a New York minute. Yet the ones who reside in the rarefied upper levels of society seem to be doing as well or better than ever. Even you who have gainful employment, do you have faith that it is secure?

It doesn’t take rocket science to see we are being cheated six ways to Sunday by the privileged and rich. Garnering such wealth and power requires cheating or stealing someone out of his. There is only so much gold to go around. Ninety percent of the wealth is in 10% of the hands. Not much left for the greedy. Why do you think the money presses are going full-tilt? Whom do you think runs the Federal Reserve Banking system?: Timothy F. Geithner , as an active member of the Bilderbergs and the gang of Thirty, these elites are essentially running our monetary policy in secret. It certainly ain’t the single mom who makes nine bucks an hour and has three boys and a girl to raise. You want to know what fiscal responsibility is?  Read her checkbook ledger.  I bet it is figured to the penny until the next paycheck, if there is one.

“What is mine is mine and what is yours is mine” is the battle cry of the elite. It is the way.

Here is a sublime comment from a moderator who scans through hundreds of blog comments a day posted by YOU. This guy put in plain words that make no mistake as to the truth of the power of free speech:

Why do we love our work? Wally says it best: “Freedom, liberty and independence are enemies of the left and always have been. They fear information. A knowledgeable public is not what the left wants. As moderators, we help American Thinker provide the platform for the information that the left hates to have out there”

Please don’t stop for one second you guys. Give it to them but good, fight the good fight. Give no quarter nor expect it in return.

Here is a few parting words of wisdom from two souls who believed with all their hearts in people and the greatness they are capable of:

In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we’ve been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? Ronald Reagan, January 20, 1981

If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs. -Theodore Roosevelt

  1. This is from an e-mail I recieved just before this last,” fourth of July”. It tells of the men, “our unsung heroes”, who signed,”The Declaration of Independance”.

    Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men

    who signed the Declaration of Independence ?

    Five signers were captured by the British as traitors,

    and tortured before they died.

    Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

    Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army;

    another had two sons captured.

    Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or

    hardships of the Revolutionary War.

    They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes,

    and their sacred honor.

    What kind of men were they?

    Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.

    Eleven were merchants,

    nine were farmers and large plantation owners;

    men of means, well educated,

    but they signed the Declaration of Independence

    knowing full well that the penalty would be death if

    they were captured.

    Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and

    trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the

    British Navy. He sold his home and properties to

    pay his debts, and died in rags.

    Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British

    that he was forced to move his family almost constantly.

    He served in the Congress without pay, and his family

    was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him,

    and poverty was his reward.

    Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer,

    Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

    At the battle of Yorktown , Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that

    the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson

    home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General

    George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed,

    and Nelson died bankrupt.

    Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed.

    The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

    John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying.

    Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill

    were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests

    and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his

    children vanished.

    So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and

    silently thank these patriots. It’s not much to ask for the price they paid.

    Remember: freedom is never free!

    patriotism

    is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer,

    picnics, and baseball games.

  2. Thank-you, 12th Generation American, for your reply. This is a perfect case for the ‘special attention’ of ALL American patriots.

    Let’s start with Rep Paul Broun R-GA, and Senators Johnny Isakson R-GA and Saxby Chambliss R-GA. The first step is to get them ALL on the record to FULLY answer ALL of the questions in this post and to write the OPEN LETTER to Obama, that I have suggested. We need to let them know that they can do it the relatively easy way or they can do it the hard way, after being the subjects of MASSIVE attention from Patriots. They are currently standing in the way of freedom-loving Patriots. That is a place that they are going to find VERY uncomfortable. It will be very interesting to see if they will ‘wise up’ before having to be confronted by full-scale ‘Tea Party’ type demonstrations.

    John Charlton, will you publicize this initiative?

    ——————-

    Mr. Charlton replies: Start it, and we will cover it.

    1. 12th Generation American, can you send all of this, by registered mail, to your Congressmen and give them a deadline of say two weeks to give a full response?

      1. 12th Generation American,

        Better still, can you arrange for this material to be handed, personally, to the Congressmen, whilst being filmed and sound-recorded?

      2. Joe:

        I have just emailed a well-known patriot friend of mine asking him to take on this task as he is much more likely to get it done and responded to. I will let you know his response and we will go from there. He is from GA also and has asked similar questions of our Congressmen probably much more emphatically than I have. God bless.

      3. Joe:

        I just received this from a truly great American in the person of Carl Swensson:

        “I support this and any other effort to get our Representatives to truthfully respond to our presentments and petitions of redress. You must know how adamant I am about completing this goal of exposure so please, use my name in this venture and keep me up on any response. I’ll wait for you to post and look forward to hearing from you.”

        Carl’s website is: http://riseupforamerica.com/

        He can be contacted at: prevere@riseupforamerica.com

        So contact Carl, tell him what you propose, and he will move forward on this.

        God bless.

  3. Up to this point, my keyboard seems to be firing blanks at my Congressmen?!? I can’t get a reply!

    Where can I find some “live” ammo for my keyboard?!!??

    God bless America, because we sure need it!

    1. These stonewalling Senators and so-called Representatives are relying on their club-culture solidarity to keep them immune from public scrutiny. Maybe we should single them out, ONE AT A TIME, for special attention and then when the first one buckles under the pressure of hundreds of Patriots, who won’t take no for an answer, we then all move on to the next one.

      Since you, 12th Generation American, raised the issue of YOUR Congressman refusing to reply to your communications, then I say let’s ALL go after him or her until YOU are satisfied that they’ve given all of the proper responses. We should deny them any means of escape. We need to get IN THEIR FACES, mass demonstrations, if necessary, until they satisfy your demands. When you are eventually satisfied, then you can nominate a blogger to select the next ‘victim’ – and so on and so on. They won’t know what’s hit them. Let’s show them what we can do.
      I suggest that one thing we should all demand of each individual Senator and Representative, is that he or she writes an OPEN LETTER to Mr Obama demanding that he publish whatever documentary and legal proof that he can come up with to try to prove his CONSTITUTIONAL ELIGIBILITY to occupy The White House. Obama won’t at first, but eventually under the weight of numbers, Obama, himself, will have to give it his best shot. We will then break down his evidence and his arguments.

      So who shall it be, 12th Generation American? Which Congressman shall we go after first? What questions are being dodged?

      1. My Congressman is Rep Paul Broun R-GA. My Senators are Johnny Isakson R-GA and Saxby Chambliss R-GA. The main question dodged is: Why did EVERY Republican member of Congress certify Barry Soetoro a.k.a. Barack Obama as POTUS in the Electoral College without properly vetting him and knowing he did not qualify due to his father’s being a non-citizen among other things. Then there is the question of why the POTUS refuses to open his qualifying records to We the People and furthermore has spent close $2M to prevent their disclosure if they do in fact exist!

        The only reply I have received was from Chambliss in the form of a form letter stating Obama had shown his birth certificate and that he was born in Hawaii.. He did not address the natural born citizen question posed to him as the others did not.

        I believe Broun has blocked my email address or just plain IGNORES my questions?!!?!

        I know Deal was certainly aware of the situation before the Electoral College, because he made some public statements concerning it; however he never followed through and certified him along with the rest of the Republican sheep.

        God bless America because we certainly need it!
