Liberty

A noun, seven-letter word, three syllables defined by Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary in the following way: Plural liberties
1: the quality or state of being free
a: the power to do as one pleases
b: freedom from physical restraint
c: freedom from arbitrary or despotic control
d: the positive enjoyment of various social, political or economic rights and privileges
e: the power of choice
The definition begins with being free this is why the word liberty is seldom heard, freedom has become synonymous although it is not. They continue with “the power to do as one pleases”. Now I would have to disagree with that as there is no power just ability and to do as one pleases is also incorrect because liberty has limits. Their definition doesn’t recognize that liberty extends and ends where the life of another person is impacted, we don’t have the power to kill anyone as we please. Those limits are understood as and classified as God and Nature’s Law.
We could spend time covering the other definitions but I’d like to focus on two points, one that being free and freedom are in three of the top number one definitions and then c: freedom from arbitrary or despotic control is worth discussion. This definition is not only correct but insightful as it talks about arbitrary, despotic and control. All of these are elements of tyranny and its proponents. This shapes the definition of liberty in a different light; that of good to tyranny’s evil.
The definition of rightful liberty as defined by Thomas Jefferson is:
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
So, given the chance with all due respect to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary and in light of Thomas Jefferson’s insightful definition. I think it is a complex concept that one must understand if one is to embrace it as a value so I would humbly suggest the following.
1. The inalienable right to pursue happiness by choices that harm or diminish no other.
a: The right to do as one wishes as long as it hurts no other.
b: The responsibility to live with the consequences of our choices.
Let us start here to discuss the comparison to the definitions above and Thomas Jefferson’s terms of rightful liberty, the quality or state of being free as compared to the suggestion above. Their definition suggests that being free is synonymous with pursuing liberty I do not agree. It doesn’t state where liberty comes from, its limitations in regards to others and the responsibility for the consequences of our choices and actions. All of these plus tolerance for anyone to practice true liberty must understand that the right to make choices is universal and although we may not agree we must respect our fellow man or woman to live life as they see fit. We are not to be judged or to judge others, that is not our place nor our right.
So, liberty is a responsibility for we are left with the consequences of our choices and actions. The pursuit of happiness is universal the actual attaining of that goal will vary according to circumstances and individual choices. The limitation is not only tolerance but respect for our fellow beings as we claim that life and liberty are a gift from our Creator. Lastly, no one has the authority to usurp our liberty or impose tyranny upon us, our rights are inalienable.
Because Liberty therefore is the foundation of freedom, Liberty is greater than freedom the pursuit of which will create the circumstances where rightful freedom is possible. Without true Righteous Liberty freedom is an illusion a false sense of security. We have allowed our liberties to be trampled over the centuries since our inception in the Declaration of Independence. It is our duty to ensure its existence against the despots, tyrants and all who would seek control over others.

It is past time that we the American People face the reality that our current system of government is failing in what it was intended to do. These failures of our federal government to live within the confines of the Constitution of the United States has committed grievous offenses against the American People, the rightful rulers of our land. As such we must demand restitution of our inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and that the federal government be restructured to its original enumerated powers and purpose. The tyrannical growth of the scope, size, power and invasiveness on our individual rights especially privacy must be dismantled immediately.
The Federal Reserve must be investigated, audited and then dissolved with the power to control our currency residing in the House of Representatives as written in the constitution. The international corporation who through unconstitutional legislation was founded will return to the people the earnings of the American People they have stolen. Those found to be engaged in unconstitutional and or criminal activities shall be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. This will be the last national bank in America once the restitution of all stolen money has been completed.
The federal government has grown beyond what is necessary and affordable. The Congress along with the President shall pass a budget cutting government expenses where the debt is extended no further and is demonstrably paying down the national debt. The national debt is a national security issue and must be treated as such. A debtor nation is neither free or sovereign subject to the whims of our creditors. The national debt must be eliminated as soon as possible.
The inalienable rights to freedom of speech, assembly, religion a free press and the right to petition the government for redress of grievances has been violated. The press is controlled by the government and is therefore by definition not free. Government involvement in all matters of media be it old or new platforms shall cease immediately. Freedom of speech in all its forms are to be free from government surveillance, legislation, adjudication or regulation without limit immediately and forevermore.
The right to privacy extends to a reasonable expectation to privacy. This includes freedom from having our communications including written, electronic or digital be surveilled without a warrant. All of our thoughts expressed remain our property in the context of ownership this includes the expectations that our physical location is private and not subject to monitoring or collecting. The right to privacy of our persons and effects shall be inviolable whether in the privacy of our homes, property or in transit through any mode of transportation.
The use of existing and future technologies shall be free from infringing on our individual inalienable rights to privacy. No governmental agency, individual, corporation or entity may incorporate any essential policies contrary to our individual privacy rights to use any means of communication, engaging in self-expression or commerce. The internet, its platforms, applications and all modes of communication will not be considered a surrender of the property of our movements or whereabouts. The use of technology shall not come at the cost of the loss of any of our liberties endowed in us by our Creator.
All unconstitutional provisions, laws or regulations such as the Patriot Act and provisions in the NDAA shall be shall be immediately null and void. The federal government shall return all powers not exclusively given to the states and the individuals of this country. All undeclared wars shall cease immediately and all use of the military shall be used only with the approval of the congress under Article I Section 8 of the constitution.
This is not an all-inclusive list but a starting point. Let the federal government listen and respond to the will of the people and resume its rightful place and role in the lives of the people it was created to serve. The federal government must respond and address our righteous grievances. Failure to do so will force the American People to use our inalienable right to dissolve the current system of government and replace it with one that ensures liberty for ourselves and our posterity with reliance on Divine Providence to guide our path.

The Choice of Brett Kavanaugh For Supreme Court Justice

Brett Kavanaugh

The most critical choice being considered now is the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. The media is spinning this as a right vs left, Democrat vs Republican, Trump supporter or anti-Trump vote. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is about putting a justice on the court who will interpret constitutional issues on the text within the context of intent, by the founding fathers.
Justice Kavanaugh is not a proponent of individual expectation to privacy. He interprets the constitution as written without regard for intent. This narrow view makes the Bill of Rights a restriction on our individual liberties not a minimum guarantee as intended. This is exactly why some of the Founders felt the Bill of Rights was not only unnecessary but dangerous as it could be used to constrain our rights to only these and the narrow definitions contained within.
Some of the founding fathers were insistent that the Bill of Rights was essential because they felt that these minimum guarantees were necessary to protect liberty. Yet now the text is used to limit what those liberties were defined as, not how it was intended. The Founders never would have expected that our reasonable right to privacy would be relinquished when travelling by normal conveyance for personal or business needs yet what rights do we relinquish through force of law when flying on an airplane?
This is a common mode of transportation yet we have given up our rights to privacy in our things and our person for the “convenience” of flying. Now we see the same things with our cell phone records including our calls and our location tracking data held for 5 years by the carrier. This information is given to 3rd parties, the cell phone tower owners to collect. The argument then is that we have voluntarily relinquished the information, it is their property a key distinction, so our expectation of privacy to be tracked is lost.
Justice Kavanaugh has written that the collection of our phone records can be used by the government in the name of national security. He doesn’t view privacy and its importance in the context of not only the Fourth Amendment, he ignores the Ninth and the Tenth. Our right to privacy is inalienable and absolute. The power to surveil our every word even in the supposed sanctity of our homes and means of conveyance, such as our cars is the epitome of tyranny and a means of control.
Our inalienable rights are not defined or confined to the words written in the individual amendments to the constitution. Nor are they defined through the rulings of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is a separate but equal branch of government and no more. The Constitution was written to ensure that the federal government was contained to its enumerated powers and no more. The Supreme Court through the power of judicial review has allowed the government to amass powers never intended and this has gone on for centuries.
Now technology will be introduced where everything in your home will be voice activated and listening all the time. Now the government can listen and watch us in the very sanctity of our homes. This is not liberty as the Founders intended to leave their posterity after fighting for their inalienable rights. Technology’s reach is expanding and it is being used against us by the globalists behind the deep state. We must realize that all powers not given to the federal government were retained by the States and the individual. The constitution through judicial review has weakened the binds of the constitution meant to constrain the federal government. States’ rights and individual rights are being trampled and this must end now.
Justice Kavanaugh on the grounds of constitutional interpretation has a record of being weak on protecting our individual rights to privacy. This is an issue of great importance now and even more in the not so distant future. We need a Supreme Court who will look at the constitution and especially our rights through the perspective of intent and context not strict interpretation of one part of the text. This narrow focus misses the point and endangers us all to tyranny and that was never the intent of the founders. We would do well to demand that our liberties be defended not undermined. In the case of our right to privacy. Brett Kavanaugh doesn’t seem to be in the best interests of the American people. I urge the Senate to quickly reject Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination and find a more suitable candidate.

The Supreme Court Decision on Cell Phone Tracking

Posted in Carpenter vs the United States, FISA courts, Inalienable Rights, Liberty, Right to Privacy, United States Supreme Court with tags , , , , , on June 30, 2018 by authorcarloscardoso

cell phone tower

The recent decision in Carpenter vs the United States by a 5-4 margin was a slim victory for privacy and liberty and by more than just the vote. The majority opinion written by Chief Justice Roberts was grounded in common sense but very limited in scope. He wrote that cell phones were virtually an indispensable way of life and some people are required by their occupation to carry them 24/7 and he’s right. He also noted that 5 years of historical data held by a third party couldn’t be gathered without a warrant because it had to meet the expectation of probable cause needed to search a person’s movement over that length of time without infringing on our reasonable expectation to privacy.
There were three dissenting opinions written in response with Justice Gorsuch writing his own opinion alone without concurrence. This is even more interesting in that Gorsuch wrote that had Carpenter argued that the cell-site location information records were his property he would have concurred with the majority. This simple distinction was pivotal in the decision-making process of all nine Supreme Court Justices. The key word here was property in the dissents written by Justice Kennedy with Justices Thomas and Alito as well as the other written by Justice Alito with Justice Thomas all hinged on the concept of ownership of the cell-site location information the expectation to privacy in the dissenting opinions were lost due to the issue that ownership of those records were held by the carriers of which AT&T was the largest.
Americans have by the nature of the internet and wi-fi essentially given away our reasonable right to privacy in order to avail ourselves of the convenience these innovations have brought to the world. This is something that we as consumers must rally around. We must demand that any information shared with a provider of any service such as these we consent only to being used to our benefit if we choose but any tracking of our movements is an infringement on our right to privacy and our thoughts and conversations are by right intellectual property and should be protected as such.
Therefore, we as Americans must demand that our use of modern conveniences and as stated before in some cases not always by choice cannot and will not be used to track anyone without their consent or without a warrant in a court of law where both sides have an advocate. This would nullify the FISA courts which are unconstitutional since it is ex parte, there is a prosecutor without a defense lawyer or even an impartial advocate. It is a one-sided presentation which has been shown can be manipulated through the willful avoiding of disculpatory evidence by the prosecutor.
The American people must insist that this tracking of our movements is by its very nature our individual property. Law enforcement agencies do not have the right to track any citizen for any reason without a warrant which was the focus of this case. Therefore this decision pointed out a fatal flaw for anyone with a cell phone, the wireless and wi-fi providers track our every movement with a date and time stamp and save it for 5 years. The time is unreasonably long and records of our movement are by nature our reasonable expectation of individual privacy and rightful property.
We need to have privacy agreements for cell phone, tablets, computer, websites, apps and wi-fi companies to clearly state that the records of our movements remain our individual property as we consent to the use of their cell towers to use their products and services. The time of record retention is arbitrary and too long. I believe that there is no reason for those records to be maintained in the manner that they are for any length of time. The mere carrying of some devices crucial to Americans does not mean I or you willfully surrender our rights to the expectation of privacy and allow our movements to be monitored and owned by anyone but the individual.
This decision did not place any limitation on government agencies nor does it involve them in the solution. I don’t seek government legislation, regulation or adjudication to solve this dilemma. We the American people who pay for our internet, cell phones and other electronic devices must demand from our government and the providers that our individual rights are not for sale and non-negotiable. The tracking, monitoring and all other intrusions on our inalienable right to privacy are intolerable and must end now. This case shows how tenuous our liberties are to a government that we clearly currently don’t own.

Here is the link to the decision of Carpenter vs the United States with the majority and dissenting opinions.

The Inalienable Rights To Freedom of Speech, To bear Arms and Privacy

Posted in Freedom of Speech, Inalienable Rights, Liberty, Right to Privacy, Tyranny, War On Terror with tags , , , on January 17, 2018 by authorcarloscardoso

Although we have many more rights than these, the globalist tyrants must eradicate these to rob us of our inalienable right to liberty to spread tyranny in America. The right to free speech is under attack. The internet controls the narrative by choosing what to distribute and what to censor. This is occurring as Google, Facebook and Twitter have a stranglehold on the sharing of information and all have clearly established practices to promote globalist views while stopping the spread of information on our founding principles of liberty and values on which this country was established.

The importance of the right to bear arms is eloquently described by Benjamin Franklin when he said, “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!” clearly stating the right to bear arms is essential to protecting liberty. The 20th century chronicles many examples of where gun control led to disarmament of the populace and to the murders of millions repeatedly across the planet. This illustrates that liberty can only be maintained as long as the right to bear arms is not infringed.

The right to privacy is crucial in stopping the rise of tyranny and this generation preserving the rights endowed us by our Creator for ourselves and our posterity .We have endured the loss of privacy when we travel, monitored in our homes and in all our communications what are we left with? We are trading liberty for a false sense of security and in the end we are losing both. Liberty is the foundation of freedom and true security.

We willingly give up privacy using technology for convenience allowing the globalist tyrants in our government to watch, listen and track every moment of our lives. This coupled with their ability to manipulate all of these technologies creates the ability to fabricate evidence and vulnerability to false accusations. Only the right to a trial by a jury of our peers can protect us from the loss of life and liberty. This was recently on display in the dismissal of all charges against the Bundys.

Therefore we must find ways to control the narrative in America to cherishing and protecting our liberties. Repealing the immoral, illegal and unconstitutional powers this government has stolen to control free speech, privacy and gun control. We must regain control of our education system which has been hijacked to erase and rewrite history. We must hold the media accountable for distributing misinformation and reclaim the narrative. We must fight to retain and retake our loss rights to bear arms across America. We must retake our lost rights to privacy in the name of security so that liberty may endure. Finally we need to realize the truth that the most dangerous enemies to our republic are within our government working to destroy the American experiment of self governance and liberty and justice for all.

Peeling Back The Onion

The people speak about the existence of a deep state working within our government against the interests of the American people and our system of governance. The first thing that people must realize is that this is not a new phenomenon. The CIA along with the backing of the international criminal organization known as the Federal Reserve have been bankrolling them while robbing the American people of our hard earned wealth through fraud and crimes against our liberty.

The truth once it eventually is exposed by the light of day will show that America has been under constant attack by the forces of tyranny since before our independence and ever since. The fact is that liberty has always been under siege so it’s up to us to decide how far back into uncovering this treachery do we go. Recently the Kennedy assassination files have begun to be released. Perhaps we can start there almost six decades of lies, murders and theft that had to be protected at what cost?

We can start three decades ago and the actions taken under H.W. Bush towards surrendering American sovereignty to the UN. We can move up to the Clintons and the audacity which with they pushed their criminal activity. We can go up to George W. Bush who masterfully played the American people to happily give up their liberties under the guise of increased security in the face of fighting terrorism. Or we could start with the Obama and Clinton alliance which took criminality and the rise of tyranny to new heights with the help of many bureaucrats and elected politicians all guilty of treason whether by action or omission.

Either way we need to decide where to start because justice and liberty have been denied for far too long and immediate action is required. We have the Bundys and their fellow patriots who rallied to their side to stand against government lawlessness and intimidation only to be hunted down and held as political prisoners. If we are to believe that OUR government will do what is right then the Bundys, the Hammonds and many more Americans who have been persecuted, abused, murdered and wrongfully imprisoned must find justice.

It is time that these patriots and patriots all across this land find justice from a government that has trampled our liberties and robbed us of our livelihoods and even murdered some spilling the blood of patriots beginning the watering of the Tree of Liberty. Soon the blood of tyrants will be mixed with the blood of our patriot brothers. This will only happen once the light of liberty shines the light of truth across this land and the tyrants are exposed and brought to justice. This will take time because the more we peel away the layers of illusion and misinformation the more traitors that will be exposed and the further back we will go realizing how much we have been asleep at the wheel and allowed evil to grow so strong.

 

The Threat Remains As Tyanny Grows Stronger

fd2dc790-4f85-11e7-84d0-45c2c679ec3f_militias_jpg_cfThere have been several articles written recently saying how gun sales have dropped off significantly since the election of Donald Trump. This in and of itself is a sign that many Americans considered Trump to be a savior. Thry believed that all by himself he could make America great again. The truth is that no matter who is elected president the power that is supposed to reside in We the People has not for a long time. The true power lies behind faceless bureaucrats, an ever growing pólice state that tramples our liberties and an even more insiduous threat, the bankers that control our money and fate.

The truth is that freedom is an illusion without liberty and we have never had less liberty in America tan we do now. A storm is coming to America and anyone who loves and understands the liberty that our forefathers fought for realices that it has been lost. The evil forces that have undermined our constitutional republic are so deeply imbedded in our bloated government that it will be difficult if not imposible to defeat them peacefully. The tyrants have become so emboldened that they don’t even try to hide their treachery.

Once the mask comes completely off one can only wonder will it be too late for liberty loving patriots to be able to wáter the Tree of Liberty with enough blood of tyrants to turn the tide of history. Much blood of patriots will by necessity but will it be enough? The truth is that evil has grown extremely powerful and our so called public servants are complicit in the treasonous acts that have destroyed our liberty. We must replace the entire legislative branch, the judicial branch and the bureaucracy behind it. then we must end the criminal organization called the Federal Reserve. The following link is reason for hope as there are many Americans preparing knowing that there is a cáncer growing within our government waiting to eradicate individual liberty and impose their tyranny upon us and our posterity.

Jefferson warned us against the danger of a central bank being more dangerous tan standing armies and yet today we have both. He prophetically warned what would happen when he said: ” I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private Banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the Banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the Banks and restored to the people, to whom it rightly belongs.” The following link sums it up succinctly from the perspective of our wise founders, treasonous leaders and even the evil bankers who have quietly amassed the power to enslave Humanity if we allow it.

http://www.themoneymasters.com/the-money-masters/famous-quotations-on-banking/

The other threat behind the bankers, the illegitimate government in Washington and the members of the judicial system who deprive us justice is the police state. This includes the militarily armed pólice forces across our cities and the out of control intelligience agencies. These working together are a very potent enemy who with the proliferation of technology can not only invade our privacy but manipulate our very devices to make the innocent seem guilty. They have admitted that they can use our electronics to monitor us in what should be the sanctified privacy of our homes. Yet what people don’t seem to understand is that if they control all of our electronic devices to spy on us then they also have the power to use our cell pones and computers to créate digital, electronic and even sound recordings to create false evidence to be used against us.

The truth is that we can’t believe anything they produce as evidence because their ability to créate illusions is so powerful that we must look beyond the evidence provided and question the veracity of anything. Today in America we have political prisoners languishing in prisons denied of their unalienable rights to liberty, self defense and a fair and Speedy trial. Unbelievably they not only get away with that but they are also beating, torturing and in some cases murdering innocent Americans who dare to speak on behalf of our founding principles.

As Americans we must look at the injustices being allowed to happen and realice that it is up to us to end it. Libetry and justice denied to anyone is a threat to all of us. It is time to end the judicial system and replace it with a justice system. We must remove the judges, lawyers and all others who by their own words call themselves “officers of the court”. This is an admission that none of them work to ensure justice for you but for the system that they work under. Take a look at flag and you will notice that it is surrounded by gold fringe. This is not decorative but is instead a signal that common law that falls under the constitution is abandoned and replaced by admiralty or martial law either of which denies you of your rights which you surrender unwittingly to their authority. See the links below but feel free to explore and educate yourself.

The time is now for Americans to educate themselves on the principles under which this country was founded. The eternal struggle for the liberty which Humanity was endowed with by our Creator yet denied by tyrants and despots throughout the ages continues. Thomas Jefferson’s masterpiece of the Declaration of Independence is the righteous justification of all humanity to live in liberty, free from the bondage of government.  Free to govern ourselves with the power and responsibility that true righteous liberty provides and demands. We must be prepared to fight to ensure that libetry prevails and Humanity can be freed to progress beyond our petty differences and unite to ensure that the growing threat of tyranny is defeated. This is our duty to secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.
