Celebrating America

AND STANDING UP FOR HER

The North and South Towers of the World Trade Center before September 11, 2001

(Sept. 11, 2010) — We stand here together Today in Kalispell, Montana to honor our country, its founders and the Constitution. We stand here together to CELEBRATE AMERICA, show pride and honor as Americans who will never forget what this country stands for and why we defend her to our death.

We need to remember where we were on September 11th, 2001 and know where we are today, September 11, 2010. Where have we and the country traveled since then…what paths have we taken? We pay tribute to all of our fellow Americans and their families that have sacrificed their lives for this great land. God Bless all of them!

But now as we celebrate America, we at the same time must Stand Up For America and cherish what our founders and forefathers and Mothers laId out for us in 1776 in wonderful values and traditions.

Today, as much as then, We are the Masters of our Fate and the Captains of our Soul……. I quote:

From the Poem Invictus by English Author poet William Ernest Henley (1849–1903) that was penned in 1875.

“I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.” Yes, America, you are watching while Washington and Federal Government self-destructs before our very eyes. What do a country and its citizens do as their nation continues to collapse from weak and misdirected Leadership? What are you going to do? The Declaration of Independence states: “To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”

We cannot permit the current leaders in the White House and Halls of Congress to continue in their efforts to lead us down the road of Progressive Socialism and destruction of the Republic. There are no partisan politics here today – it is about us as Americans standing up and taking charge of our destiny and playing our individual part to ensure what needs to be done is done.

If there is to be a Patriotic Revolution, it is to begin now.  We Constitutionalists face a battle that is unknown to our generations so we must be aggressive in our collective efforts to change the tide. Of notice are the continued Arrogance, Incompetence and Dishonesty of officials as relates to Legislation, National Security, Economy and is the rationale for a massive change of our government in the Executive and Legislative Branches. The Fate of the country is now in our hands and the plea from the majority of our citizens is to enforce the Constitution, severely limit the Federal Government and it’s out of control spending. There is a growing list of documented violations by current elected and appointed government officials of the Constitution and their Oath of Office. The 2010 November elections will be the most pivotal mid-term elections in our history.

Lincoln issued this warning in his inaugural address, “Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one.  This is a most valuable and sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world.”  Being a representative republic, not a democracy, and “rising up” means other than revolution by use of arms. The people must “rise up” (Stand Up) from the grass roots across this great country as we think of the greater good of this and future generations. We are limited in the peaceful transfer of power…resignation, elections, and impeachment. That is why the Patriotic Revolution must take place to ensure survival of the Union.

The oath is simple and reads:

“I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.” Sadly, we have seen them violate their oath.  Fraud, lying, and corruption are rampant and some have engaged in treasonous activities, and they effectively thumb their noses at us and have sold you to the highest bidder.

The Articles of Confederation were replaced with the Constitution, which granted the federal government enough authority to cultivate, promote and secure the Blessings of Liberty. The balance of authority and individual liberty was understood. Power was confined to that which was enumerated in the Constitution with a certain and meaningful intent for check and balances.

We must make it a local imperative and movement….of the People…by the People… and For the People.

“We, the People” have had enough.  Enough is Enough. We have watched the elected and appointed leaders violate their sacred oath of office. “We, the People” cannot solely depend on the results of the elections.  It is now that many of these public servants (and you know who they are) must put the people and country interests above self-interest by resigning and stepping down immediately.   A civil uprising is still not out of the question as “pain” grips the country more each day. This means raising your voice now to your neighbors, family, co-workers, and friends. Be the Captains of your Souls. I pray for another George Washington to appear within the year and lead us. And then we can again next year Celebrate America, a Nation proud and prosperous and unyielding to our enemies. We all must be the brave and brave enough to Stand Up and lead this country back to honor and Dignity.

Thank you for this opportunity. God Bless all of you.

    Thank you, Maj. Gen. Vallely. We surely do need to throw off this destructive gvmt that is devouring our freedoms and shredding our constitution. We also need to get rid of the judges who rule against the constitution or legislate laws themselves. Abolish every law or bill that has been enacted against the constitution that keep us enslaved to the powers that be. Unfortunately, we can only vote for the ‘chosen’ few that we are offered in the Presidential run, and most times they are just lower or higher levels of the same destructive beliefs, from the same controlling clubs, wealthy/influential families or political organizations (some of them quite scary). So the question is: How do we make a REAL change in our gvmt if we can’t break the ropes of those controlling who we can vote for in the presidency? There must be a way. Anyway, thanks again for your article, sir. It is inspiring.

    The VOICE of EVIL: “We are not and never will be at war with Islam…”

    The TRUTH: “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world [ISLAM] and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil [9/11/01] comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

    Wow, what a contrast between Gen. Vallely’s patriotic heart and the weasely rubbish I heard New York Mayor Bloomberg spewing this morning. Mr. Mayor claimed that New Yorkers had the same values as midwesterners as he insisted, on this day of all others, that Muslims have every right to build an Islamic Cultural Center (to educate America) on the very ground where an airliner engine fell in 2001. Bloomberg stands firmly behind Obama and firmly against America’s best interests. Those are just two of the many we need to rise up against.

    Moving speech. We all know where we are headed and it is a proven fact we will be led there whimpering simply because the will to “stand up” is for audiences to enjoy. The will to die for country is what preserves it even for the majority who slink about caring only for what they can enjoy today.

    (Ret.) Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely has petitioned the current administration to resign, calling on all former military to uphold their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution. As to the present, I’m not certain how many petitions were sent to D.C. It would seem a continued push to this end would be beneficial with a renewed effort. As stated the people need to overwhelm the gov’t with this redress of no-confidence. Most certainly, many influencial Americans have already signed the petition. Most certainly, a listing attached to the document would give the petition even more force to those who as yet are still unaware or those who shirk their responsibility.
