We were learning during the lockdown.
While we were sitting at home letting the events, laws, and policies surrounding Covid-19 playout during May, we were finally starting to awaken to the realization that our rights, in the name of safety, we’re once again in the grip of an overreaching government.
This time, however, things were different. Americans, although scared, were finally starting to understand the need for protesting, and the importance of letting our government know, we know when they’re overreaching.
We realized, when we recognize something isn’t right, we have to call it out. I was proud and happy to see all the people out in Ohio, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and so on, protesting the lockdown stay-at-home order, and martial law as they both are unconstitutional.
Then, peaceful protesting and progress was hijacked by violence, looting, and crime. It’s really a shame, and I can only hope that’s not the result whenever Americans start catching on to how they’re being violated. Good Americans should never be afraid to protest.
Where are we?
Section 215 of the Patriot Act violates the Fourth Amendment, which says the Government cannot conduct a search without obtaining a warrant and showing probable cause. I don’t know how many American citizens were aware of that back when it was signed during the “911” crises to protect us from terrorism, but if you we wondering why Ben Franklin’s quote, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety,” was gaining in popularity, that’s why.
According to Gerald Celente, on New Year’s Eve in 2011, President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act, which stripped Americans of Amendments Five and Six, and officially declared the United States as a battle zone.
I did my own research, and I think he’s referring to subsections 1021-1022 of Title X, Subtitle D, titled “Counter-Terrorism,” but I don’t know. Either way, I think Gerald Celente is a reputable guy, and he’s definitely vocal, but I don’t think he would bull-shit about that.
If it is true……
Our Bill of Rights was given to us to protect us from an overreaching government, which includes police brutality, illegal searches and seizures, and so on, so those rights cannot be taken from us.
The American citizens would never give those rights up either.
…………how did we lose our Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendment Rights?
I guess we didn’t realize we were giving them away, and buying safety.
We live in a very unique time, and we must be careful.
I’m not trying to sell you a story, I’m giving you my honest opinion.
Our government is using terrorism, and terrorist to sell us safety, which strips away our rights once the Bill is signed into law. Violence is not the way to beat this, the answer is exercising our rights as they are written.
Afterall, the last thing you would want as an American citizen is for your government to call you a terrorist.
