Edgar Steele’s Nickel Rant: We’re All Terrorists Now

March 25, 2009

Edgar J. Steele returns this week with a provocative Nickel Rant entitled “We’re All Terrorists Now,” in which he examines the most recent assault upon personal rights and liberties, this time by the federal government and the State of Missouri, who now claim that:

  • You are a terrorist if you defend the US Constitution.
  • You are a terrorist if you oppose gun confiscation.
  • You are a terrorist if you oppose illegal immigration.
  • Flying an American flag can make you a terrorist.
  • Oppose abortion? You’re a terrorist.
  • Support Ron Paul? You’re a terrorist.
  • Vote for Constitution or Libertarian Party candidates? Yep, you’re a terrorist.

Listen in and find out how America’s War on Terror has morphed into a War on Americans.

    Excellent broadcast Ed, thanks so much.

    I do not necessarily disagree with anything said but wish to try to clarify a bit of it; the word “we” is used out of context a bit, I think. The Constitution and politics are two different entities on opposite sides of the seesaw. The People (U.S. Citizenry) are on the side of the Constitution and government/politics are on the other side.

    I’ll try to keep it simple because it is simple and the simplicity seems to be over the head of the People. And even over the head of those talking about a constitutional America or restoring/reestablishing a constitutional America.

    The Constitution and government are opposites because the Constitution “Rules” government. Government, via the Oath of Office, is obligated to honor (obey) the Constitution. The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land to rule government and the People are the only “Enforcer” of, or final authority to Enforce, the Constitution. The only constitutional power of “Force” the People have to enforce the Constitution on government is the Ballot Box with which to hire (elect) all elected Officials, particularly Lawmakers. The People (only the People) hire (elect) all Congressmen (Lawmakers) to the House of Congress every two years; reference Article I, Section 2.

    Only Congress can legislate (make law); reference Article I, Section 1. The People (We) cannot legislate (make a law) nor repeal a law. All Bills for raising federal revenue must start in the House of Congress; reference Article I, Section 7.

    Government police and courts enforce government legislation on the People. The only constitutional power the People have to confront, stop or halt, the enforcement of government legislation on them is the Jury Boxes.

    The Ballot Box and Jury Boxes (two) are the only constitutional powers of “force” the People have available to use against government Officials and government legislation (laws). If the People want a change of direction of government from criminal unconstitutional insanity toward constitutional sanity then they must “force” government to honor the Constitution’s Oath of Office.

    Simply do not vote to reelect (hire) any Incumbent that has failed to honor their Oath of Office. Yes, restoring/reestablishing and maintaining a constitutional America is that simple.

    Good Luck,

    All this talk about voting out this corrupt politician or the other politician is very nice. But a little naive I would say. Knowing that all markets, both stock and commodity, are manipulated to the advantage of the globalist cabal that runs the world and is currently taking down the worlds’ economies, I find it very difficult to believe that any and all elections are also not similarily ‘fixed’.
    In a truthful open governmental environment I would expect the orderly system you describe. But the world is now in chaos and ruled by a elite set of bankers, brokers and corporate owned politicians. “Out of Chaos, Order”. The motto of the globalist NWO.
    The original system of government established by the writers of the Constitution does NOT exist any longer. This country, and most of the so called free world, is under the complete control of an illegal, immoral and greedy conspiracy. It’s success lies in the fact that they have been able to hide in the shadows for centuries and allow their front men to take the heat for the excesses of these few. To fool the majority into thinking they have some part in this non existing “Democracy”.
    So, vote if you like. But, realize the futility of believing that the masters will ever willingly relinquish their control. This has never been OUR country and it never will be! Just more of the same deception that keeps the uninformed and faithful believers from revolting.
    Do you really think that a group of white aristocrat slave owners would establish a new country and set the government up so as to allow any one other than from their own to take control? Do you think Obama really offers the chance for change?
    Studying Constutional law is not a bad thing but a review of American political history would also be beneficial. Probably much more relevant to todays actual situation.
    Of the rich, by the rich and for the rich.
    And guess what? You’re not invited to join the party !!

    Edgar, good to hear your ideas of an ideal government.

    When is Marriage a Legal Marriage and when is it a Natural bonding of man and women?

    Do we have Legal Marriage becuase we are under the Roman system? What part of the Roman system is suppressive and which isn’t. That’s a broad question but can we simply blame corruption on the status quo. Free man seems to eb your goal, and if so that’s very honourable.

    Naive and you suggest globalist cabal that runs the world and is currently taking down the worlds’ economies and ‘fix’ voting when they DO NOT vote at all??? Only the USA Citizenry Votes to elect USA Lawmakers and do so every two years for those Lawmakers in the House of Congress.

    It ain’t the ballot box that is fixed, it is voters mind that is fixed with and or by trash such as you posted.

    I think mr Steele would be a very good presidents candidate, i.e. he’s honest to the bone and has guts, verbally his qualities are excellent!
    America desperately needs a leader and I think it is quite easy to prevent an assasination: in his speeches a politcan can loudly declare that ‘if he’s being killed, we all know who the culprits are and we will not go along with another lone nut version’!

    You miss one enormous “constitutional” point; the USA does not need a “Leader” for the simply reason no one person rules the U.S. government or America. Only the 535 people seated in Congress can legislate for the federal government; reference Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution.

    A President is not much more than a figurehead (he cannot make a law) and probably the least important person elected to office in WDC. As a matter of fact the People voters do not vote for or directly elect a President. However, the People voters do directly elect all 435 Members (Lawmakers) of the House of Congress every two years; reference Article I, Section 2.

    The hoopla about electing a President leads voters from the most important process of hiring (electing) Lawmakers to the House every two years.

    in reply:

    That’s what Jefferson Davis thought.

  8. Allan Hampton on March 27th, 2009 1:55 am

    Funny, huh? What do you think rules, or is supposed to rule, U.S. governments? Well, maybe nothing rules U.S. governments because government Officials do whatever they wish and evidently with impunity.

    Seems to me if a person agrees under Oath to support a Law that Oath obligates that person to abide by and be ruled by that Law. The Constitution is a Law, the Supreme Law of the Land, isn’t it?

    To be effective a law must be enforced; are government Officials the enforcer of the Law that they take an Oath to support? I think not. I think the Constitution is the People’s Law their government Officials take an Oath to support and therefore the People are the Enforcer of the Law of the Constitution on government. Furthermore, constitutionally the only power of force the People have to enforce the Constitution on government (elected Officials) is the Ballot Box; reference Article I, Section 2.

    According to Article I, Section 2; the People are the Employer of government elected Officials (House anyway), at least only the People can vote to hire (elect) them. The People are the Boss, only Boss, of who gets hired (elected) to the House. Those mentioned hired hands are “constitutionally” hired expressly for only one purpose, to honor the Oath of Office (support the Constitution); reference last paragraph of Article VI.

    A candidate voted for, hired (elected), any other reason (than to honor the Oath) is a wasted vote, wasted in preserving Constitutional America.

    Your Constitutional rights do not apply inside of a contractual agreement. Sever your adhesion contracts with the government or continue to suffer. Art 1 sec 10 regarding contracts.

  10. Allan Hampton on March 27th, 2009 8:41 pm

    Targa 2,

    Article I, Section 10 – addressing the “States” – “No State shall … pass any Bill of Attainder; ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, ..” That is the People’s Right to contract, and is not a government power or Right, to contract.

    What “constitutional Rights” are exempted or “impaired” by or within a contract?

    A contract made committing a crime is an invalid/improper contract. A contract made without the full knowledge of every detail of the contract by one of the parties signing the contract is not a valid contract and is unenforceable.

    Where in the Constitution is government delegated a power to contract with the People? Government takes an Oath to support the Constitution and I do not find a power delegated to government to contract with the People in the Constitution. If a power is not written in the Constitution as delegated to government then that power does not exist; reference Amendment X.

    Hi Targa,

    You’ll find fertile grounds here… ; )

    This issue is a real eye opener for the average American. The neo-cons on other forums are eating Crow.

    Only if you’re “Right-Wing” are you considered a terrorist when you try to do any of those things. We know the Unwritten Leftist Rules.
