The Unconstitutional Abuse of Our Unalienable Rights

Six years ago I wrote the post below about the unconstitutional abuse of our unalienable rights as the TSA implemented the use of the full body scanner as I implored Americans to write to then House Majority Leader Democrat Steny Hoyer. The technology was being purchased from former Homeland Security Chief Michael Chertoff’s company which definitely seemed unethical at best. Yet this short post was about Americans’ rights to travel by air and still retain our unalienable right to privacy enshrined in the Fourth Amendment,” The right of the people to be secure in their persons, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrant shall issue, but upon reasonable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or places to be seized.”

The issue with the full body scanner and other measures being undertaken by the TSA is not the delay as stated by the House Majority Leader. The issue more precisely is the legality of these unreasonable methods. Travelers have a choice of having your picture taken naked, submitting to a sexual groping or facing a fine of up to $11,000. The unconstitutionality of this practice under the fourth amendment is clear. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, against unreasonable search and seizure without a warrant is being violated. The right of people to be secure in their persons, against unreasonable search and seizures shall not be violated without a warrant being issued based on probable cause. This would require a warrant to be issued against all Americans and that defies logic and is an insult to the American people. We require a different approach and should look at cheaper, constitutional and more effective ways to thwart would be terrorists. We cannot give up our essential liberties for a little security for as Ben Franklin so wisely said, we would deserve neither. We cannot give up who we are to defeat our enemies, we must remain true to who we are and look at alternative measures. El Al is an airline that has been facing terrorist threats constantly and yet has a security record second to none.

That was just the beginning, the proverbial tip of the iceberg as the government was totally trashing our right to privacy. The sad part is that many Americans still embrace this particular loss of liberty for a false sense of security. The misnamed Patriot Act has been the largest government attempt to steal the rights of the American people and grow the power, scope and reach into our lives in history. Edward Snowden told Americans that we were being spied upon by our own government contrary to its constitutional authority. Yet the scope of the treachery and the creation of a police surveillance state has grown to a monster that must be dismantled if liberty is to survive. The Patriot Act is not about ensuring or enhancing our security but is simply about control.

We were told that if you weren’t communicating with foreigners you had nothing to worry about. We were told if you weren’t doing anything wrong you had nothing to worry about which should have been the first red flag since this was supposed to be about National Security and not matters tied to criminal investigations. We were told they were collecting metadata, tracking phone calls origin, destination and length and keeping this data for future reference if a suspicious pattern emerged and not listening to our actual conversations. This, my fellow Americans is an outright lie.

We are being listened to in real time without having done anything to warrant such scrutiny except speaking out about our constitution and the system of government it was meant to control against stealing our unalienable rights and liberties. Our every movement is being tracked and the ability they have to manipulate our electronic devices is truly astounding and appalling. This federal government has since September 11, 2001 used the pretense of fighting terrorism to usurp our rights and use their power to try and intimidate and silence dissent. Our founding fathers fought a war against their own government, the most powerful in the world to establish that our liberties were unalienable and if our government didn’t work to secure these blessings then we had the right and duty to break the political bonds that bind us.

Ordinary Americans who have not forgotten our history, our founding values and principles are treated like criminals and in some cases have been murdered for daring to speak out against the growing tyranny. People like many American ranchers have had their livelihoods destroyed and their land which had been in their families for generations stolen right from under them. Those brave enough to resist like Lavoy Finicum have been murdered. Others like the Bundy’s have been held as political prisoners for daring to speak out and were tried by a government intent on denying them their right to properly defend themselves. It was only the right to a trial by a jury of their peers in Oregon who were able to see through the government deception and find them not guilty on all counts that they were cleared, only to be kept in custody to face charges in Nevada.

These patriots deserve justice and the government agents and their hired henchmen should be held accountable for their multiple crimes. The time has come for the American people to unite instead of listening to the false narrative being sold us about how we are divided. It is time for Americans to reclaim our heritage and birthright to freedom and liberty and reject the evil scourge of globalist tyranny. The globalists are on the verge of being thrown out of power across the globe just when they thought their tyrannical plans were about to come to fruition.

They are a severely wounded animal and as such must be treated with great caution for they are desperate and truly were not expecting a repudiation of their world view on such a large scale across the world. This is the time for us to ensure that as Americans we lead the global fight against tyranny and show the world what life in a country that embraces and practices true righteous liberty can be. We must dismantle the Washington establishment and political ruling elite class and replace it with a government of the people, by the people and for the people. We must destroy the leviathan federal government and bind it securely once and for all with the chains of the constitution as it was meant to be. We must ensure that never again we allow or even give our elected public servants the thought that we will allow them to legislate, regulate or adjudicate away our unalienable rights. We must limit the government to its enumerated powers and return the power of liberty back to the individuals.

The constitution isn’t perfect it is indeed flawed or we would never have found ourselves in this predicament. We must be vigilant and take it upon ourselves to serve our country in a sense of duty to restore the republic and its cornerstone and foundation of liberty. We must let the the tyrants and globalists know that liberty is the Creator’s wish for all of humanity and that we Americans will ensure that it flourishes once again in the hearts and minds of the people. We pledge to be better guardians of the republic which was founded to foster, nurture and protect liberty. We must speak loudly and boldly that we will not give in to fear or intimidation for indeed we are many and united in the cause of liberty we are invincible.
