On the heels of NDAA, ObamaCare, Stimulus, Son of Stimulus, Patriot Act, takeover of auto, energy, media and movie industries, and the relentless implementation of Agenda 21... the Obama regime running our country into the ground has issued an updated Executive Order which suggests the probability of impending MARTIAL LAW.

We are left to scratch our heads and ask……… Why now?

The only possible answer is…

America is in fact, right now, in the vicious throes of a Cold Civil War.

Cold as in non-violent and Civil as in nationwide; an attempt to force a new government-controlled ideology upon an unwilling public.

And the forces implementing this agenda are relentless.

The National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order is nothing more than a blatant attempt to stir trouble of the highest intensity. The regime is looking to see who jumps and to see the movement that happens amongst the most vocal defenders of our rights, (you and me). They are poking us to see if we will go over the edge and do something so stupid that there will be a crisis… it will be our fault… and if any of our number are provoked enough to rise to the proverbial bait -- they will finally lower the hammer… all in the name of "national security and public safety."

These are classic Soviet style tactics designed and implemented in an effort to make us react, get us to either flinch and shut up, or overreact and get suppressed. It is also an exercise so they can gather intel on who is who and who has pull.

Many of us are trained. We know this game.

But we cannot stand down. We cannot be silent. We MUST stand together as one…WITHOUT VIOLENCE, for there is no going back from that; we MUST speak out with the conviction and the authority granted by our unalienable rights and the United States Constitution! Remember Martin Niemöller and his immortal wisdom about the failure of courage in speaking out; “Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.” The regime is limiting our speech on a daily basis, so speak up while you still can. But be smart about what you say. Do not be tempted to phrase your words in terms of violence. For this is the way of the enemy and we should never stoop to their low and bloody tactics, whether in word or deed.

Keep preparing for rough times ahead. Stock your pantry in preparation for lean days, even as the regime attempts to make such things illegal. Focus your mind on liberty, that it should never die.

I cannot tell you exactly what is coming but I know, as do you, that something unprecedented in American history, perhaps even all human history, is coming soon.

This is the common theme in most of all the conversations that I hear… there is something coming, no one really knows what it is; they just know that whatever it is, it will be momentous. The discussions range from quantifying this "something" to describing what we will do after "IT" happens. I even hear serious open conversation of the Biblical “End of Times.” People, even those outside the grassroots Tea Party movement, feel it in their bones.

Speculation runs rampant as people ponder the feeling in their gut. It could begin with something as simple as personal unemployment. It may be the 2012 general election -- or NOT. Or it could be any number of events that will trigger Martial Law and the now legal occupation of America by her own troops, under the un-Constitutional NDAA.

Those types of events are limitless and terrifying. It could be a full scale crash of our economy and dollar. It could be a new World War launched by Israel attacking Iran, or vice versa. It could be the launch of the rumored North Korean EMP attack designed to hurl America 100 years back into pre-electronic time. It could be Islamic jihadists succeeding in a catastrophic terrorist attack. It could be the enemy within if the Obama Administration's aided and abetted “Occupy” movement transfers and escalates the violence witnessed in Oakland to the rest of the country.

Whatever the trigger might be, we are about to get the education of a lifetime on what it is to struggle. It will either make us more committed Americans, earning the Latin communitas – or it will literally tear us apart. I believe that the source of this struggle springs from the complex sublimity of global despotic tyranny – ultimate oppression.

Our culture is in the midst of a moral dilemma where bad is now good and what was deemed originally American by our Founders is now un-American. The Founders are all but outlawed because soon, unless those who hate freedom are halted, after the regime finishes destroying the Bill of Rights they will also totally erase the Founders from the educational curriculum. They will outlaw the works of our Founding Fathers and destroy their very existence, burning books and erasing American liberty from history. It will be done incrementally and they will transform our history into one that aligns with their totalitarian views.

Every single day we have now turned to reacting to what the regime is putting out instead of looking to where they are taking us. The powers pulling the levers of tyranny are every day more draconian and daring in scope as they usurp our institutions and drain the power from our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Most all of the stories that are important and should be seen are buried by the complicit media at the end of the weekly news cycles and under the cloak of darkness.

In Quantum Theory there is a concept called a singularity or a black hole. Just as a black hole cannot be seen in space, the actual truth and facts of the world situation and the intentions of the U.S. government must be judged by the influence exerted on the objects around it -- extortion, manipulation, intimidation, czars, fascist over- regulation designed to purposefully strangle an economy and legislate away your right to defend and provide for yourself -- all in an effort to force you into their food line dependency and powerlessness!

The gravity of a black hole is so monumental that even light collapses upon itself. And in the same way, the lights of liberty are also collapsing upon themselves as media, government officials and useful idiots corrupt our understanding of American Exceptionalism so we can never really know the nefarious plot that seeks to turn our good country into an empty carcass they can declare the "failed" American Experiment. Their answer to the great philosopher’s question, “Can man govern himself” will surely be no.

It must be noted that this current Administration is not the only perpetrator. A long history of Administrations, both Republican and Democrat, have eaten away at our freedom. This Obama Administration, so fatally attacking our liberty, is just the one closing the noose. The broad strokes of true Communism were tightly woven into the ObamaCare and Stimulus bills, yet most Americans had no clue. The technocratic, lawyer-istic drool contained within those bills made it even harder to comprehend that Soft Tyranny was the true intent. And Soft Tyranny always ends in Hard Tyranny -- a horror not yet experienced by Americans never exposed to adversity and real stress -- where tyrannical forces purposefully separate us from each other, turn us against each other (compulsory service, Ready Reserve, NDAA and the coercions in 5201 of ObamaCare) and control every aspect of our lives… lives which then become CRUEL because YOUR life will now be totally and completely ruled by THEIR choice.

IF THEY WIN, even the passion to be free and ultimately the reality itself of being free will be as if these blessings have never existed. Tyranny can never allow such powerful ideas to remain in the collective consciousness.

They will burn our books and they will attempt to erase our God. Because without the concept of freedom codified in books by the brilliant minds of Cicero, Locke and Montesquieu; without the inspiration and institutions from our Founders; without the guidance of God to the understanding that there is a higher power than the government, there would never have been our nation "conceived in liberty."

But while I believe this struggle in which we are engaged is the struggle of the century, nay, the struggle of all centuries, I also believe in American Exceptionalism.

I believe that the heart and soul of America is strong and vibrant and that we shall not falter in our commitment to liberty.

We live NOW in the times that will try men’s souls.


Are you a Summer Soldier, a Sunshine Patriot only to speak out when times are easy and there is no risk?

Or are you an American Exceptionalist who will STAND with me, RIGHT NOW to preserve our liberty, our beliefs and the American Way?

FYI and comment.

I don't doubt for a minute that after 39 months of an Obama administration and the fact that a massive leftist media that supports his brand of socialism, that those of us on the right are fed up to the point of vomiting.

Unfortunately, this has been going on for many administrations and it appears that a horrible disease affects those who decide that a lifetime career in national politics is for them and, after being elected, it is their entitled place in Congress until they die or get tossed out.

America is dying in red ink and in a non-existant philosophy.

It’s not about Obama. He’s not taking the country anywhere that the New World Order types in the GOP don’t want to go. The Muslims want a world wide caliphate, the western elites want a neo feudalism.

” Or are you an American Exceptionalist who will STAND with me,RIGHT NOW to preserve our liberty,our beliefs and the American Way?”

So, is this a call to arms?
Cold about to go hot?

If cold is about to go hot, the power elite seems to know it. But those drones set to fly over U.S. territory won`t be armed, we`ve been oh-so-strongly assured...

Keep your powder dry.

Violence is required under only extreme circumstances (suspension of the constitution, refusing to transition after an election)

Until then, stay aware, voice your opinion and prepare.

That is correct. An oath once taken, is binding forever.

I think the likelihood of a full out civil war is remote. However, there may be increases in civil strife especially as the country becomes demographically more diverse and we import more ethnic groups that will not assimilate. As an aside, I think this is a good reason to encourage your sons/nephews to get some type of military training. In addition to simply being a hallmark of a good citizen, it may come in handy some we need good men in all branches of the service.

Greetings IbJensen:

A cold civil war, very articulate summary. Perhaps The National Debt Relief Amendment is a way to rein in the out of control government.

Pray for our republic,

With a population of 300 million that is also well armed a standing Federal Army of 500,000 isn't enough troops to occupy Arkansas let alone the entire USA. Even if you add the police that is only a million troops. The standing Federal Army is too small for the statist dream of martial law.

Half the standing Army would throw down anyway if told to occupy a state.

It took Hitler 500,000 troops just to occupy Yugoslavia during WWII.

“Half the standing Army would throw down anyway if told to occupy a state.”

When Qaddafi ordered his army to attack Libyans, more than half the army deserted to the provincial militias, which are equivalent to our state’s guards.

Qaddafi then ordered his mercenary goons to round up eight deserters and execute them. Within a week, his mercenaries were hanging from lampposts as decorations, while others were running like scared rats for the Niger border.

By the next week, Qaddafi had been captured, thrown on the hood of a militia SUV and executed with his own gold-plated pistol. More than 7,000 Qaddafi supporters and mercenaries are in various militia prisons, their fate unknown.

If you’re going to order your military out to kill their neighbors, families and friends, expect the consequences.

DO the math. 50 states in the union. 500,000 man Army. Thats average of10,000 troops per state. At any given time 1/3 are on duty, 1/3 are sleeping. 1/3 doing maintenance etc. 1/3 of 10,000 is 3,333 soldiers on duty to patrol an entire state. LOL. Let’s say each state has 50 counties. That is 66 guys, or an undersized infantry company i.e. 2 platoons, to patrol an entire county. The numbers are not there.

Yes and in addition to that some 14 states thankfully including GA have already passed legislation putting state guard/militia under the Gov to go agains’t the Feds if they declare martial law and try to take over. If CW2 breaks out its going to be the states vs the Feds not the civilians out in the streets. That is the way it needs to go down.

Our Federal Army is great at defeating a small to mid sized Armies in an out and out war. It sucks at occupation. This is a factor of size and mental outlook. Occupations are boring low tech police type operations, no glamor.

Afghanistan has a pop approx. 30 million. To have the same ratio here it would require 1,000,000 troops.
