Real American Heroes


Queue Up the old Bud Light Commercial theme music… “Real American Heroes…”

This post is a slightly edited version, of one that made the rounds back in 2017. SD2010 is still looking for the ORIGINAL to give them credit.

 

 

Let this sink in for a minute…..Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Almost all of them driven by men. They’re using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.

Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used “gimme-hats”, t-shirts, and jeans; and there’s a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump.

They are not all democrats, nor are they all republicans. They are the ‘Melting Pot’. They are welders, and plumbers and electricians, and carpenters, and auto mechanics, and BBQ pitmasters, and farmers, and produce managers from your local Piggly Wiggly, and a plethora of other occupations.

They are White, Black, & Asian. They are of Hispanic, Irish, Scottish, German, Italian, African, and other ancestry backgrounds. They are Yankees & Rebels… Penn State Fans alongside Alabama Fans; they are Chicago Bears & Green Bay Packers fans — working hand in hand for a common cause. Some prefer Country music, some like Hip Hop / Rap.

 

Supplies loaded to head to the NC Coastal area in 2018 by Stokes County Militia

Not only are they pulling little john boats behind their trucks… Some are pulling utility trailers filled with water, bleach, can goods, Vienna Sausages & Saltine Crackers, diapers, tampons, soap, toothbrushes, mops & brooms, blankets, and other supplies that are needed.

I wish there was a SINGLE WORD that we could use to describe these heroes… OH WAIT, there is:

This is “THE MILITIA!”

These are the people the Left loves to hate, the ones Maddow mocks. The ones Maher and Olbermann just *know* they’re so much better than.

These are The Quiet Ones. They don’t wear masks and tear down statues. They don’t, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods.

But they’ll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging gators and water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available; and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They’ll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.

When disaster strikes, it’s what men do. Real men. Heroic men. American men. And then they’ll knock back a few shots, or a few beers with like-minded men they’ve never met before, and talk about fish, or ten-point bucks, or the benefits of hollow-point ammo, or their F-150s and their Chevy Z-71s.

A post seen today, August 7, 2019 on Facebook. It is to good not to share

From Milo Townsend:

I think when people finally reach the point of not just saying, but acting on the declaration that “I will not acknowledge this political system if this system isn’t going to adhere to the rule of law,” instead of “I won’t vote for so-and-so if so-and-so does or doesn’t do X” — then we will have finally reached a turning point in this discussion. But if you call yourself a constitutionalist or a patriot, and yet you continue to participate in, invest yourself in, give legitimacy and support to a system that you know, or should know by now, systemically and invariably tramples your (and everyone else’s) rights, thumbs its nose at due process, and scorns the rule of law and any semblance of genuine justice, then as Cliff said, you’re getting what you deserve no matter who you vote for, or who gets elected. I’m going to say this very bluntly: if I just described you, then you are still part of the problem, not the solution. Hate me if you want to, get pissed off at me, unfriend me, block me, whatever. Sometimes people need to hear it straight, and by God, that’s as straight as the truth gets.

There is not, and never will be any president that either can, or would if he could, fix these problems that plague this nationalized American political system. Not Trump, not Obama, not Ron Paul; not even if we could all agree on an ideal leader and make him or her Emperor for a week, or a year, would that person have the capability of righting the wrongs of this system. The power to CHOOSE to recognize only lawful government, and to eschew all imitations and pretenders thereto, can only ever be up to each of us and within our own exclusive discretion. If you want to fix what ails America, there is one possible avenue, and one alone: for YOU – each of you, as individual, autonomous human beings – to STOP CHOOSING TO OBEY unconstitutional and unlawful acts of illegitimate government as if they were law. They are not law, and they do not have a rightful claim to your obedience. Assert your rights, peaceably as long as you can, but assert them nonetheless, and refuse to be subdued by the usurpers. Be smarter than your adversary, use the mind God gave you, and the aid of those around you, which Providence has sent you as allies in your struggle, and know that the truth of history is actually on your side, should you choose to stop giving your life to the machinations of evil men.

As for standing together: certainly, stand together! But if you want a totem to rally around, don’t choose something as uncertain and changing as the personality of another human being! Whatever his promises, whatever your hopes for his actions, he will disappoint you all, eventually, and as he does so, this very strife and angst and division is precisely the result you will experience. Rally instead around a reliable and steadfast totem, a nexus of concepts which express the objectives and values that you genuinely do share, and which define the very commonality of the struggle in which you are all engaged! Let Truth and Integrity and Law be your common totem. Tether your common bond around the ethical imperatives of honorable men, the indubitable truths of our history, and the eternal ideals of justice and liberty and the rule of law, for those are, after all, the ends for which we allegedly institute governments among men, are they not!? And though every man will surely fail to live up to the ideal, those imperatives and truths and concepts are fixed and unchanging, inherent in the fabric of our universe and beyond the reach of paltry humans to corrupt. They persist eternally, even though we can never perfectly realize them in this world, and they inspire us as much today as they did 250 years ago to strive for a better world, a better life, a better society, and ultimately to better ourselves. Rally around THOSE ideals, and they won’t – can’t disappoint you, and you can stand together on that common ground despite whatever vagaries of fate befall you, or however shallow and fickle and corruptible particular men may prove to be.

But don’t put your faith in one, or even a number of other human beings as if they will be your saviors, your “last chance,” or “best hope.” And especially not anyone in a position of power in this de facto system! Because every one of them – without exception, whoever they are – in order to have gotten where they are, they had first and foremost to acquiesce in the treason and play their part among the usurpers of lawful government. If they have power, they are members of that den of thieves, not its adversary. And Trump is no exception. His allegiance is to the treason against the founders’ Constitution; he is a dyed-in-the-wool nationalist and wears that traitorous status with a fool’s zealous pride. And as long as we accept a spurious nationalized legal status, so, too, is that where the law determines that our allegiance rests.

But that choice is within our power to alter, and the law, in fact, demands that we do alter it. It seems upside-down, I realize, but the truth is, you have to forget almost everything you think you know, because what has been taught to you as legitimate all your life, is a fraud, and what has been taught to you as treason, is actually genuine patriotism. If you can find the courage to un-learn the lies and let the truth take their place, that truth really will set you free. Stop being a pawn in the game of traitors, and when the traitors don’t have a constituency anymore, then they no longer have any power.

Whether this made you mad, or curious, ask questions. Look deeper. Or don’t. The keys to freedom are literally in your hands. What you do with them is no one’s choice but your own, and God gave you free will to make poor decisions as well as wise ones. Again, we will get the government we deserve, no matter what that happens to be.

“America, we have a problem.

There is someone who needs to be impeached, fired, and removed from office.

There is a very particular leader in our country that is refusing to do the job that she was elected by the American people to do.

Not only is she refusing to do her job, her policies are dangerous for LEO’s and treasonous to America. We can no longer sit idly by and be abused by this woman and her selfish ideas of how she thinks America should be.”

This is severely disturbing.  Faulkner County, Arkansas, Sheriff Tim Ryals is now facing massive backlash thanks to a camera phone and social media.

A Faulkner sheriff deputy named Keenan Wallace was caught on camera shooting a small dog while investigating a neighborhood call reporting an aggressive dog.  Initially the County Sheriff was slow to respond to the outcry; then the video went viral on social media. [Warning, this is disturbing]:

I am SICK & TIRED of this Nonsense — It is time to round up these ‘Sanctuary City’ & Illegal Immigration enablers, and ENFORCE the law!

Officer Singh died as a direct result of the unlawful actions of many elected officials, such as:
Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, California Governor Jerry Brown, Maxine Waters, Dianne Feinstein, Kamala Harris, Sheila Jackson-Lee, NC’s David Price & GK Butterfield, Durham’s Mayor Schewell & Council members Jillian Johnson & Charlie Reece, and Wake & Durham County’s newly elected sheriffs. This is only a small list, but it’s a START.

The above listed individuals have ALL violated;
Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv), and,
Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v)

 

The Story

 

“By Laura Anthony and The Associated Press

Thursday, December 27, 2018 10:02PM

NEWMAN, Calif. — Ronil Singh came to the U.S. from his native Fiji to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming an officer, joining a small-town police force in California and working to improve his English. The day after Christmas, he stopped another immigrant, this one in the country illegally, who shot and killed the corporal, authorities said Thursday. “

 

The Law

Encouraging / Inducing — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who — encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.

 

Conspiracy/Aiding or Abetting — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(v) expressly makes it an offense to engage in a conspiracy to commit or aid or abet the commission of the foregoing offenses.

 

Penalties — The basic statutory maximum penalty for violating 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(i) and (v)(I) (alien smuggling and conspiracy) is a fine under title 18, imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or both. With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy. Moreover, if the violation results in the death of any person, the defendant may be punished by death or by imprisonment for any term of years.

 

The law is already written. It is already on the books. It is way PAST TIME to enforce it.

Open letter to elections boards throughout N.C.

     

Members of the NC State Board of Elections & County Election Boards

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I feel urged to remind you – before you hold your meeting / hearing today – that each of you has taken an SWORN OATH to support & defend the NC Constitution. Your duty today, is to uphold that oath.

To uphold that said oath, you MUST do the following;

1) Instruct each county board to go back through ALL of their ballots and remove each one that was cast using Same Day Register & Vote (1st time registrants), and/or those received on or about October 15th, and any other ballots that were cast by individuals who have not passed the COMPLETE VERIFICATION PROCESS as defined by NCGS 163-82.7.

2) These newly registered voters must also be thoroughly vetted concerning the ONE YEAR RESIDENCY requirement set forth via Art.VI, Sec. 2. of our Constitution (see cited clause below)

I realize this will be a difficult task, but it MUST BE DONE FORTHWITH. This task must especially be done in ALL COUNTIES that contain a University due to the high number of transient, ‘Out of State Students’. If a student only resides in NC during the normal school year, they must not be allowed to cast a ballot for our Council of State races, nor any local bond issues, nor other local candidates. They are however, allowed to cast ballots for ONLY President & Vice President as per Article VI, Section 2, Clause 2 cited below.

Now, some of the legal scholars, and elections employees will argue that this portion of our constitution concerning the ‘Durational Residency Laws’ was struck down by the supreme Court in 1972. Dunn vs. Blumstein, Tennessee. I’ll urge you to do your homework on this one. That argument is invalid because;

1) Our current constitution was completely re-written after the passage of the 1965 VRA, and;

2) Tennessee, nor any other state, had these newly conceived ‘Same Day Register & Vote’ laws on their books, and;

3) The 1972 SCOTUS opinion (Dunn vs Blumstein) does not take into consideration ‘Out of State’, transient individuals such as our university students, nor does it address issues that came with the U.S. Constitution’s 27th Amendment (Voting age reduced to 18) which was ratified in 1971. This case was heard less than 5 months after ratification of the 27th .

THE OPINION

Dunn vs. Blumstein (SCOTUS, 1972)
III

Concluding that Tennessee has not offered an adequate justification for its durational residence laws, we affirm the judgment of the court below.

    Affirmed.

                                        

North Carolina Constitution 

ARTICLE VI – SUFFRAGE AND ELIGIBILITY TO OFFICE

Sec. 2.  Qualifications of voter.

(1)        Residence period for State elections.  Any person who has resided in the State of North Carolina for one year and in the precinct, ward, or other election district for 30 days next preceding an election, and possesses the other qualifications set out in this Article, shall be entitled to vote at any election held in this State.  Removal from one precinct, ward, or other election district to another in this State shall not operate to deprive any person of the right to vote in the precinct, ward, or other election district from which that person has removed until 30 days after the removal.

(2)        Residence period for presidential elections.  The General Assembly may reduce the time of residence for persons voting in presidential elections.  A person made eligible by reason of a reduction in time of residence shall possess the other qualifications set out in this Article, shall only be entitled to vote for President and Vice President of the United States or for electors for President and Vice President, and shall not thereby become eligible to hold office in this State.

PropertyTax

Some of you may remember my earlier post about a Korean Era Veteran that was under attack. Well, now he has been served with a civil notice of intent to foreclose on his property.   His son Henry has sent letters (certified letters via the USPS) that have gone unanswered — just no response whatsoever. This new notice of foreclosure is prepared by some local lawyer. Why does Durham City have an attorney? Why does the County have another attorney on staff? Wouldn’t these 2 attorneys be the ones to file these proceedings? Why pay some local for that when  the ‘Government Attorneys’ are already making $130K plus per year? The Summons wasn’t even ‘SIGNED’ by a clerk. Her name was STAMPED onto the document. I’m not even sure that is legal.

 

Note: Names have been changed for privacy concerns

~~~~~~~~~~

Backstory: When Charlie & Leslie decided to build a new residence in late 1968 – early 1969, they looked at many areas in Durham. Both of them were raised in the city when they were growing up and still had family in the area. They currently owned property on Guess Rd. between Fawn St. & Carver St. This area was becoming ‘Commercial’ and they knew at that time, it was time to relocate.

They decided to move out of the city & into the county. They thought long & hard on this because of the inconvenience of not being near shops, and Mildred (Charlie’ mother who was going with them) being further from hospitals & her friends, & also being further from Charlie’s workplace in RTP. The county offered some perks – Lower crime rates, property taxed by only the county, noise, & other freedoms not allowed inside of the city limits. The drawback to this choice was where they picked, the development already had city water & sewer, and for years they had to pay DOUBLE the rate for these utilities (because they were outside of the city limits).

The property they picked to build on was very close to the 2 County lines. The developer, most real estate agents at the time, and even some of their lawyer buddies assured them — “Being that close to the county lines, you’ll never have to worry about being taken into the city limits” (paraphrased)

All of this was crucial to their decision of where to move to and build their new freehold.

Summer of 1970 the home was completed and the family moved in. Charlie, Leslie, their son Henry, & Charlie’s mother Mildred. The home plans had been tweaked somewhat to accommodate this unique living arrangment. Where the original house plans had called for an attached carport or garage, they decided to create a living space for the aging Mildred. Where she could have her privacy on the opposite end of the home from the other bedrooms.

This was a modest home for the day — much smaller than the home Mildred had at 123 XXXXX Road. It was only approximately 2,500 square feet of living space with a small  basement for Charlie to tinker in — to work on his lawn mowers, Henry’s bicycles, etc. The basement  also was used for the women’s deep freeze for food storage. For a family of four people, as stated above, it was very modest. The cost of the new homestead when they moved in was approximately $40,000.00 — Land & Dwelling.

Sometime in the late 1970’s, or early 1980’s, Durham decided to annex this area of the county into the city limits. No, they didn’t extend any of the city services at that time; services like trash collection or bus routes, or other amenities of the city life. The Durham leaders STRICTLY wanted extra tax monies. Charlie & Leslie fought this annexation, along with many of their neighbors. They lost that battle. And to this day, there are still no bus routes within 2+ miles of the homestead.

Mildred passed away in the early 1980’s after several years of declining health due to suffering a stroke. Henry was a young adult by this time & had moved out on his own.

Charlie & Leslie have a past history of paying their taxes, in full & on time for over 40 years. Every so often, the City / County  would do their ‘Re-Evaluations’ and jack up the value of the property. Charlie & Leslie would occasionally question these so-called ‘DRIVE BY’ evals & would get tossed from person to person there at city hall. No one would answer reasonable questions and the county commissioners answer to them was  — “We HAVE to GET the money from somewhere!” Very frustrating to have public servants that refuse to serve their constituents. And Charlie & Leslie didn’t hire lawyers every 4-5 years to file complaints & challenge these unlawful actions. In fact, it wasn’t widely known that these are unlawful acts by an out of control municipality & local government.

People have been told for years & years that you MUST pay taxes or the government will lock you up; they will take your home, etc. We also have believed these things . . . until we started reading the actual laws  that are codified by statute.

Our current NC State Constitution was completely rewritten in 1971. From a review of the former Constitution, to the newly written 1971 edition, there are several questions that need addressing. These are many and I won’t get into all of them here.

Our current general statutes are also a complete mess here in North Carolina. One will say one thing, another one will state something completely different.

My general point here — referring to Constitutional changes & general statutes — is how we’ve gone from a rule of law, a free & sovereign state, to basically chaos where one hand doesn’t have a clue as to what the other hand is doing. And specifically here in Durham County.

Allow me to cite a couple of examples:

North Carolina Constitution:

ARTICLE I – DECLARATION OF RIGHTS

Sec. 2.  Sovereignty of the people.

All political power is vested in and derived from the people; all government of right originates from the people, is founded upon their will only, and is instituted solely for the good of the whole.

Sec. 8.  Representation and taxation.

The people of this State shall not be taxed or made subject to the payment of any impost or duty without the consent of themselves or their representatives in the General Assembly, freely given. [The representatives of the general assembly are forbidden from delegating the power to tax citizens at the county level — Art. V (2),(2)]

Sec. 19.  Law of the land; equal protection of the laws.

No person shall be taken, imprisoned, or disseized of his freehold, liberties, or privileges, or outlawed, or exiled, or in any manner deprived of his life, liberty, or property, but by the law of the land.  No person shall be denied the equal protection of the laws; nor shall any person be subjected to discrimination by the State because of race, color, religion, or national origin.

Sec. 25.  Right of jury trial in civil cases.

In all controversies at law respecting property, the ancient mode of trial by jury is one of the best securities of the rights of the people, and shall remain sacred and inviolable. [Yet the courts often hold proceedings that have only a judge that makes these decisions.]

ARTICLE V – FINANCE

Sec. 2.  State and local taxation.

(1)        Power of taxation.  The power of taxation shall be exercised in a just and equitable manner, for public purposes only, and shall never be surrendered, suspended, or contracted away.

(2)        Classification.  Only the General Assembly shall have the power to classify property for taxation, which power shall be exercised only on a State-wide basis and shall not be delegated.  No class of property shall be taxed except by uniform rule, and every classification shall be made by general law uniformly applicable in every county, city and town, and other unit of local government.

(5)        Purposes of property tax.  The General Assembly shall not authorize any county, city or town, special district, or other unit of local government to levy taxes on property, except for purposes authorized by general law uniformly applicable throughout the State, unless the tax is approved by a majority of the qualified voters of the unit who vote thereon.

Number 5 above is KEY here. Somewhere between the FORCED Constitution of 1868 (done after  Military Order 120 was issued and the sovereign State of NC was forced under federal control) and 1971, the word ‘Therein’ was changed to ‘Thereon’. When did the voters of N.C. ratify this change? I can not find it anywhere. I honestly believe this was done unlawfully. 

ncconstitution_1868_art7_sec7

I wonder when the word ‘therein’ was changed to ‘thereon’?

My point here, number 1 & 2 under Article V states only the general assembly shall have the power of taxation, and they can’t delegate it away —  then they say in number 5 that the counties can tax property? Is that not delegating it away? Confusing isn’t it? Which is it?

Same here with our NC General Statutes — one says one thing, another one says the opposite.

Is a STAMP a Legal Signature? Photo of the Civil Summons

summonsshallbesignedbyclerk

Text from the above image: “The summons shall run in the name of the State and be dated and signed by the clerk, assistant clerk, or deputy clerk of the court in the county in which the action is commenced. It shall contain the title of the cause and the name of the court and county wherein the action has been commenced.”

                 

Durham is completely contaminated with fraud & injustice. It has been for years. From its disgraced court system (DA’s Nifong & Cline for 2 examples); to its city council resolutions (sanctuary city / welcoming of refugees); to its school board nonsense (Jackie Wagstaff era); to its board of elections fiasco here recently. Outrageous salaries for tax admins, & city/county attorneys that do nothing. Police chiefs that have their hands tied by elected leaders and are routinely discarded in disgrace — Theresa Chambers, Jose Lopez to name a couple.

~~~~~~

Comments from Henry: I for one am tired of financing this band of progressives and I believe it is time to expose them for who they are. I’d love to go to a jury trial — so that all this gets out in the open & the leaders can be charged with the crimes they’ve committed.

I think the time is right with the current political climate. I think a jury would agree with me and the evidence presented to them would make for a slam dunk case.

However, I will settle for them to simply stop their BULLYING of my 84 year old Korea era veteran father and repay us the extorted over-payment of taxes — from the last 19 years.  [NCGS § 105-277.1.  Elderly or disabled property tax homestead exclusion.]

                

And after that said re-payment of over-paid taxes, we will agree to pay them every year at the correct rate of 50% of the appraised value as stated in NCGS § 105-277.1

                                                   

From my rough calculations —

$2,500 X 6 years (1997-2002) = $15,000

$2,800 X 6 years (2003-2008) = $16,800

$3,000 X 4 years (2009-2012) = $12,000

$3,300 X 3 years (2013-2015) = $9,900

 

$53,700 Total paid since Charlie turned 65 years old. His taxes should have been half of this amount  — with the effect of  NCGS § 105-277.1 (a) (a2)
