It was only a matter of time.
Patriotic and courageous leaders from every corner of the nation are under attack… by a weaponized FBI. Their constitutional right to “be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures” has been overruled.

Indeed, Thomas Paine’s words from 1776 echo through the ages, “these are the times that try men’s souls.”
The Founders, during the birth of our nation, made a public declaration of their grievances against the crown in the Declaration of Independence that sound eerily familiar to the times we live in today.

The abhorrent disregard for the U.S. Constitution demands a united and impenetrable stand against tyranny.
COS state leaders, representing all 50 states, hereby make a public announcement to state legislatures across the country in this Open Letter to the States: the future of America depends on your leadership.

Today is our day.
On September 15, 1787, just two days before the Constitution was signed, George Mason stepped forth and said, “We’ve made a grave mistake. We have not left the power to propose amendments to We the People, we’ve only left that power to Congress.”

It was then that he posed this insightful question: “Should we be so naive as to believe that a federal government that has become tyrannical would ever propose the proper kinds of amendments to restrain their own tyranny?”
The Founders UNANIMOUSLY agreed, without any debate (from men who debated everything), to adopt the second clause of Article V into the U.S. Constitution.

This is our history and we owe George Mason and the Framers a huge debt today.
They had the foresight to understand that We the People would need a peaceful process to amend the Constitution that didn’t rely on the federal government.

Now it’s up to us to implement the ONLY constitutional solution that bypasses the President and Congress to save the Constitution and our Republic.
As of this morning, my team is still over $25,000 short of reaching their goal. Will you pitch in whatever you can today in honor of Article V Day? EVERY. SINGLE. GIFT is tripled until the end of the week.

Together, we will implement the plan that the Framers provided us for such a time as this.

Top 3 Never-Forgets for 9/11
By Keith Bessette -

Anthony Freda Artwork. Anthonyfreda.com

On 9/11, we are blasted with reminders to “never forget.” I adamantly agree. Never forget 9/11.

Never forget what the government did and did not do leading up to the attacks.

Never forget how the government used the attacks to expand its power and attack us.

My top three never-forgets on 9/11:

Allowing the government to carry out intervention wars has a huge price in both American lives and dollars

Every crisis will be used to expand government power; the bigger the crisis, the more power they grab

The FBI federal organization should be shut down. Useful functions (if any) should be turned over to the individual States, where all police power is constitutionally required to be
Cost of Intervention Wars

About 3000 people were killed on 9/11, and over 8000 have died since in 9/11 attack and cleanup-related illnesses. Thousands of American service personnel have been killed in Middle East intervention wars.

The government has spent trillions of dollars on these interventions. Our money was spent directly on U.S. military action, funding governments and terrorist organizations, and providing weapons and training. Some of those funded include Saddam Hussein, Iraq’s military, al-Qaeda, and Osama bin Laden. For what?

From a realistic view of the results of U.S. interventions, no Middle Eastern country is better off today than before the U.S. government got involved. Trillions were spent while hundreds of thousands of people were killed, injured, and displaced from their homes and work. For what?

Osama bin Laden, a Saudi national (along with many of the 9/11 hijackers), was clear about why the attacks were made. It was in response to U.S. interventions in his part of the world. I am inclined to believe him on this question.

The Constitution is quite clear. Use of force overseas requires a declaration of war by Congress. Congress has never declared war on a Middle Eastern country. The Founders were right – never let one person decide when to go to war when to end a war, and also run the war. That is a power of a King, not a President.

As Dave Smith pointed out, “if you want to know who our next enemy is, see who we are funding today.”

Power Grab

The federal government used the 9/11 attacks to expand its power and violate the Constitution significantly. The so-called “Patriot Act,” a blatant attack on the liberty of American patriots, was passed and signed into law 45 days after the attacks. As is usually the case, the name of the legislation is precisely the opposite of what it is about.

Fear is the basis of government, and the government will always capitalize on that fear to grow itself. Speed matters in how much illegal power can be usurped from the people, hence the 45 days passage on what usually takes years to accomplish in Washington.

New unconstitutional powers the federal government assigned itself using fear after 9/11 as a handy excuse include collecting American’s cell phone records, demanding library borrowing habits, confiscating property, and labeling you a terrorist for being a member of a group. All without notification. Section 215 of the Patriot Act is an egregious violation of privacy and of the Constitution.

The TSA and Homeland Security were created using the 9/11 attacks as an excuse. QED.

FBI
The FBI knew about the 9/11 hijackers before the attack. Reports of suspicious Arab Muslim foreign nationals training to fly jetliners were provided to the FBI before the hijacking, including warning reports from FBI field agents to Headquarters. An FBI agent recommended before the attacks occurred that a review of flight schools throughout the country be conducted for other suspicious foreign national Arab pilots in training out of concern of terrorists using commercial jetliners. Flight schools reported suspicious Arab national pilots training to fly that were not particularly interested in learning to land. In total, the FBI is an assault on the liberty of U.S. citizens and has been since its beginning.

The FBI, as now run, is worse than useless. For the few actual jobs they do, we may want to turn the assets over to the individual states where all police power should be. Any good FBI agents should welcome the chance to escape the corrupt Washington DC organization.

Follow the Money
It is always helpful to follow the money. The money handed to Washington via the 17th Amendment and Federal Reserve directly contributed to the 9/11 attacks. The government carried out intervention wars in the Middle East using our money. Trillions of dollars of taxpayer money, money borrowed from future generations, and money printed out of thin air were necessary to pull this off.

To help resolve this problem, repeal the 17th Amendment and end the Fed. Curtail the power of Washington D.C. by cutting off the loot they can use.

Question
My question of the day left as an exercise to the reader: Without the 17th Amendment and the Federal Reserve, would 9/11 have happened?

If you want to stop the monster state, and you want to stop inflation, you have to stop the money printing. The only way to do that is to end the Fed.

When the Constitution was ratified, the word necessary meant, well, necessary. But in just a few short years, that was changed to convenient, or useful, giving the federal government the nearly unlimited power it has today.

The Constitution is not in force in any meaningful way. But it didn’t get like this overnight - not even close. So when did things go “off the rails” of the constitutional system? You might be surprised to hear how early it happened - and things just keep getting further and further away from it every year.

This should be obvious by now. But still, a lot of people want to give government more power to do “good things” - even though it never works out that way in the long run.

Once ANY government is allowed to overreach and expand its powers, the genie will never voluntarily go back in the bottle.

This is how it begins.
We have what the founders feared most: a “standing” or permanent army on American soil.
This de facto standing army is made up of weaponized, militarized, civilian forces which look like, dress like, and act like the military; are armed with guns, ammunition and military-style equipment; are authorized to make arrests; and are trained in military tactics.
Mind you, this de facto standing army of bureaucratic, administrative, non-military, paper-pushing, non-traditional law enforcement agencies may look and act like the military, but they are not the military.
Rather, they are foot soldiers of the police state’s standing army, and they are growing in number at an alarming rate. https://www.technocracy.news/whitehead-who-will-protect-us-from-governments-standing-army/

On Thursday, August 20, 2022, President Biden laid bare the government threat: "And for those brave right-wing Americans who say it’s all about keeping Americans independent and safe, you want to fight against the country? You need an F-15, you need something a little more than a gun."

Who is responsible for keeping the federal government within the limits of the Constitution? It’s definitely not about somehow magically getting the feds to limit their own power. Hear what leading founders and old revolutionaries had to say.
