The tactics of the nation's 'premier law enforcement' agency ..suck.
We probably told you so at some point.
If ever there was a time to harbor a little distrust in our government, it is at this point in history. Anyone in law enforcement who encourages, or sanctions the type of actions described in this video needs to be imprisoned.
It could be argued that this is not a constitutional government anymore.
Leave it to the Democrats to play on both sides of the fence at the same time. While attempting to misuse the Constitution to their advantage by fabricating impeachment articles against a President they do not believe was legally elected under its rules, they are demonstrating in Virginia the very purpose of the 2nd Amendment to it.
In case you missed it, the state government of Virginia is now totally controlled by the Democrats, courtesy of nearly $3 million in campaign donations to them by….Presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg. Mr. Bloomberg also provided them with some legislation he wants them to pass of course, to include gun confiscation. The Democrats have suggested the Governor use the Virginia National Guard to accomplish the task anywhere in the state where compliance may be sketchy.
The legislation also outlaws citizen militias, imagine that…as a “well regulated militia” might pose a problem to enforcement. These people who threaten armed force against their citizens to implement unconstitutional laws are the same people who advocate for open borders and sanctuary cities for illegal aliens. The same people that have spent the last 3 years trying to undo the results of the 2016 election. They do not deserve to be in ANY position of political power, not in America.
January 20th 2020 the new session of the Virginia legislature begins…the call to arms has already gone out over social media…there will be a confrontation. I’m certain Mr. Bloomberg will be watching, I hope the rest of the country watches as well.
Molon Labe, Mr. Bloomberg, and please, come for mine personally…

“These lawmakers, who work for us, U.S. citizens, are threatening to use the military against citizens to enforce gun confiscation and seize our private property.
If allowed, this would set a dangerous precedent across the country.
This action is precisely why the Second Amendment was created. It’s to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government.”
Understand the WHY of the United States of America.

Since then, even more highlighting has been added to be fully relevant in today’s political climate. Some have said that certain conditions of tyranny of the day were hardly to the level that our current conditions. For the smallest of taxes without representation added to a number of stated complaints, men pledged their lives; their fortunes to the pursuit of true liberty and a legacy of exceptionalism. Enjoy.
Happy Independence Day Michigan.
A Transcription from the national archives.
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That 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 effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
(the remainder below with appropriate emphasis added.)
Never happy enough with mere taxation and over burdening regulatory efforts, state officials want to remind you who is boss.
Michigan State Police are stepping up efforts to imprint their thumbs on Michigan motorists this coming holiday weekend.
Ever since the seat belt legislation was foisted upon a gullible electorate, millions of dollars have been used to cajole, threaten, and punish drivers who have threatened no one’s safety but their own. Since the inception of the law that was NEVER meant to be a primary offense, TENS OF THOUSANDS of citizens of our great lake state have been harassed by authoritative desires of some in law enforcement, and have had their 4th amendment rights violated under the guise of suspicion that they were not properly buckled in.
For the first time, federally funded seat belt enforcement efforts will take place in all 83 Michigan counties to help jump start an increase in seat belt use and reduce traffic deaths and injuries. Starting today through May 31, police departments, sheriff’s offices and the Michigan State Police will conduct stepped up seat belt enforcement as part of the annual Click It Or Ticket campaign.
According to Joshua, a personal injury lawyer in Peoria Az, the enhanced effort coincides with the 15th year since Michigan adopted a law allowing law enforcement officers to stop motorists for not being buckled up. According to the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, 2,659 lives have been saved since the law began in 2000 as a result of substantially higher belt use. States with primary enforcement laws have higher rates of seat belt use.
15 years of jackboot tyranny, now enhanced courtesy of an overreaching federal bureaucracy.
Proposal 15-1 died as it was supposed to, but there is still work to be done.
Assume ‘gloat mode,’ then get back to work.
If anyone thinks it ends here, they have forgotten the lesson of 2013 when we eased up pressure, (if only temporarily) and the governor slammed us with Medicaid expansion. In fact, when looking at the way things happen with this progressive mess in Lansing, scales put it this way to me directly:
“The gross underestimation has only brought a hike in the State Income Tax, Medicaid expansion, retirement pensions being raided, Common Core, 300+ Ghey *marriage* licenses, a quarter of a billion to the Ilitch’s ice rink who vote Democrat, a Detoilet bailout for the DIA, a recapture of control of the state Party via his pal Baird from Chicago and the Rockefeller-wing Romneys, a monolith of a Health Department, a NAFTA Bridge, a cousin with furniture contracts, more slightly faster Amtrak railcars, driver licenses for illegal alien anchor brats, a H1-B visa center operating out of his MEDC, the launch of moonslime Day at the Capital, Boji payola buildings, no-bid Medicaid contracts with moonslimes, a pending abomination of energy policy waiting in the House and Senate, and this goddam ballot proposal, of which, you notice the Nerd ain’t wooing anybody who falls within the Right side of the political spectrum, yes?”
An open letter to Amazon.com Owner Jeff Bezos on the Main Street Tyranny tax.
Regulars have seen the attempts here to correct the misinformation about the main street fairness act.
Michigan lawmakers were snookered by Kowall and Verheulen into passing their tyranny in the lame duck; a time when there would seem to be no voter backlash. We call that cowardice, and reprehensible. This morning I penned (typed) a letter to Jeff Bezos, owner of Amazon.com:
I am an online retailer. I have been fighting the mainstreet fairness taxes for several years now. Recently, Michigan legislators in a lame-duck session voted to address nexus issues in the state in an attempt to collect use taxes from out of state vendors such as Amazon and other drop shippers.
Clearly you have been arguing that the commerce clause is the remedy to what the states are trying, and frankly you are right. Quill v North Dakota settled the matter, and if there was EVER a reason for Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3, this is it. The states cannot use tariffs or taxes to discourage (or encourage) trade with other states. It is one of the enumerated powers of the congress, and the states have little business attempting to work around it.
Before anyone simply assumes that Obama is a clumsy leader and simply mistaken on taking this country to its low point in history, perhaps they consider that it is no accident. At Townhall.com, Walter Williams makes this point about seeing a driver going the wrong direction:
“Would you call him a stupid and/or incompetent driver? You say, “Williams, what kind of question is that? Of course he’s one or the other!” I’d say, “Hold your horses. What are his intentions?” If the driver’s intentions are to cause highway calamity, one can hardly call his actions stupid or incompetent. Given his intentions, he is wisely acting in a manner to achieve his objectives.”
Indeed, one must have a full understanding of what the objectives are.
For more than five years now, our congress has not only allowed the president to act contrary to law, but they have funded his efforts. In his article, Williams further points out the responsibility of congress to act under article 1 of our constitution. Unless they act to suppress the objectives of this president, (or his incredible off the chart incompetence) through the power of the purse, we will have to fully admit the constitution is lost, and our Republic has been replaced by simple tyranny.
