Spread the love

The bald eagle is the national bird of the U.S. and appears on the Seal of the President of the United States

(Sept. 16, 2010) — “I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.” From the Poem Invictus by English poet William Ernest Henley (1849–1903) that was penned in 1875. Yes, America, you are watching while Washington burns and self-destructs before our very eyes but now you are starting to awaken. Glory be! The majority of  the country and its citizens are seeing the light of our inept and incompetent leadership In Washington? The battle is on and we shall not retreat. 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 will  not 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. Go Tea Party Go! The Patriotic Revolution that I forecast well over a year ago is happening now.  We Constitutionalists face a battle that is unknown to our generations so we must be aggressive in our collective efforts to continue to change the tide. 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 of the Constitution and their Oath of Office by current elected and appointed government officials

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.

Article One, S5, CII and the 10th Amendment provides the authority but this has been trumped by a system that rewards the powerful. In 1803 each congressional district averaged 38,476 people. In 2010 it is forecast to exceed 710,000. These numbers indicate power growth, and it effectively grew eight fold in the 20th century alone. No wonder our representatives seek to stay in office so long. Power, money and benefits beyond the reach of most Americans are the basis now for many politicians and revolving door appointees staying in office. They must be termed out. With incumbency comes power. The party in the majority assigns power, so a long-term sitting representative can expect such power. A representative expected to stay in office in the 3rd Congress for approximately two years now expects 12 years, or 6 terms – so much for a “citizen government.” But this can be changed through grass roots organization and discourse. 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. The Obama White House and identifiable Members of Congress are now on a progressive socialist and treasonous death march and are bankrupting the country beyond expectations.  We have watched them 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. Hopefully, our future will reflect the citizens changed the tide in a peaceful way. 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.

Paul Vallely is Chairman of Stand Up America.

  1. Without a Judiciary who has a conscience, a moral compass, a backbone, and is willing to enforce the Constitution in the face of being confronted with the illegal acts of the President and Congress, those of us who are protesting these illegal acts and have been victimized directly like LTC Lakin and by the rampant treason of all elected officials who have fraudulently obtained office or have broken their Oaths, have little recourse available through the course of avenues within which the now lawless Government has left us. When there is no outlet or available remedy-what is the result?

  2. It seems to me from past reading that impeachment by the House and a trial by the Senate are not needed to get Obama out of office. The Constitution provided for a case in which someone who is elected president is later found by Congress to have not qualified. The exact procedure is not clear, but I think all Congress has to do is to declare in a joint resolution that Obama is not qualified for office. If he then does not voluntarily vacate the White House, the Joint Chiefs of Staff would need to offer him a ride he could not refuse.

    If open hearings are held and the evidence clearly shows that Obama does not qualify, I am guessing that even Obama would see that he has to go. We survived the resignation of Nixon, and we will celebrate the resignation of the Kenyan. And I doubt there will be widespread rioting.

    1. The procedure you are referring to is quo warranto. Quo warranto (Medieval Latin for “by what warrant?”) is a prerogative writ requiring the person to whom it is directed to show what authority s/he has for exercising some right or power (or “franchise”) s/he claims to hold.

      In the United States today, quo warranto usually arises in a civil case as a plaintiff’s claim (and thus a “cause of action” instead of a writ) that some governmental or corporate official was not validly elected to that office or is wrongfully exercising powers beyond (or ultra vires) those authorized by statute or by the corporation’s charter.

      See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quo_warranto

      Atty Leo Donofrio has always maintained that this is proper and only legal avenue to pursue removing the usurper-in-chief.

  3. General Vallely,

    On behalf of my father, would you be willing to lead a group of retired veterans to go to Washington DC to arrest the usurper?

    My father is buried in Arlington. He was a POW in Burma during WWII. If alive today, he would join you.

    The following is the DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CITIZENS ARREST statute:

    District of Columbia Official Code

    Division IV. Criminal Law and Procedure and Prisoners.

    Title 23. Criminal Procedure

    Chapter 5. Warrants and Arrests

    Subchapter V. Arrest Without Warrant

    Section § 23-582

    Arrests without warrant by other persons.

    (b) A private person may arrest another –

    (1) who he has probable cause to believe is committing in his presence –

    (A) a felony; or

    (B) an offense enumerated in section 23-581(a)(2);


    (2) in aid of a law enforcement officer or special policeman, or other person authorized by law to make an arrest.

    (c) Any person making an arrest pursuant to this section shall deliver the person arrested to a law enforcement officer without unreasonable delay.



  4. Thank You Maj. Gen. Vallely. We might have a better chance of resolving the problem peacefully if we can totally get rid of voter fraud. Just found out from my local tea party that there were 7 races in my state that were critically affected by voter fraud. That’s outrageous! Let’s return to the paper ballots, and impress upon our precinct officials that they need to be more vigilant about checking signatures. Get rid of those voting machines that can be programmed to whatever results the programmer wants. If our votes no longer count, then there isn’t anything left but a revolution.

  5. September 17 is Constitution Day. Adopted by the U.S. Congress and made Public Law 915 on August 2, 1955. President Eisenhower signed the act into law. I have not heard a thing from the media!

  6. to gen. vallely— impeachment is for a legally elected president. that is not obama. also the senate would not remove him from office. i believe more and more that the tree of liberty is going to have to be refreshed with the blood of tyrants and patriots as thomas jefferson stated has to happen from time to time. that time may be rapidly approaching. thank you.

  7. I salute you, Sir — Major General Vallely. I pray that your courage and strength of character will be a model for many thousands of our officers and the men and women now in service to their Constitution and our Nation. Already, we know that there are some who have betrayed their Country and the Constitution by violating their Oaths. THEY know who they are — as do all the men & women with whom they serve. I believe that those who resign voluntarily should be allowed to keep their pensions but loose all pay, honors and awards accumulated to date of separation. Those who do not want to admit their complicity and require a Courts Marshall to terminate their contracts to serve, should, if found guilty, be stripped of ALL awards and forfeit any pensions or separation pay. And, there ARE those whose violations and treason are of such magnitude, the courts should compel the highest penalties fitting their crimes as defined in the Codes of Military Justice.

  8. Since we are calling for resignations, may I start the list: Senator McCain-AZ, Senator Graham-SC, Senator Collins-ME, Senator Lugar-IN , Senator Gregg-NH, & Senator Snowe-ME would be a good start. They could lead the way out the door for Reid, Durbin, Dodd, Rockefeller, Schumer & Specter. At least that would diminish the stench.
