1st Amendment Rally was SUCCESSFUL!

In Dover, NH at the Rochester Family Division court yesterday, members of the Oath Keepers including their founder, Stewart Rhodes, peacefully gathered outside of the court in protest of the seizure of Johnathon Irish and Stephanie Janvrin’s newborn baby girl just 16 hours after her birth at Concord hospital. One of the several allegations given by DHS (Division of Human Services) in an affidavit to the court was that the Division

“became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the Oath Keepers and he owned a rifle, a gun and a taser.”

OK founder Stewart Rhodes wrote:

“Regardless of the other allegations, it is utterly unconstitutional for government agencies to list Mr. Irish’s association with Oath Keepers in an affidavit in support of a child abuse order to remove his daughter from his custody. Talk about chilling speech! If this is allowed to continue, it will chill the speech of not just Mr. Irish, but all Oath Keepers and it will serve as the camel under the tent for other associations being considered too risky for parents to dare. Thus, it serves to chill the speech of all of us, in any group we belong to that “officials” may not approve of. Don’t you dare associate with such and such group, or you could be on “the list” and then child protective services might come take your kids.”

The Oath Keepers is NOT a militia but are a peaceful, non-violent group made up of current and former military and law enforcement professionals dedicated to keeping the oath they gave to enter the service of their choice in which they swore to uphold, defend and protect the constitution of the United States of America! Stewart Rhodes also stated:

“Oath Keepers will actively pursue aggressive legal remedy and redress. We will assist in locating competent local legal counsel in New Hampshire and additional expert legal counsel from around the country in First Amendment and child custody law. There can be no freedom of speech, no freedom of association, no freedom to even open your mouth and speak truth to power, no freedom AT ALL, if your children can be black bagged and stolen from you because of your political speech and associations — because you simply dare to express your love of country, and dare to express your solidarity and fellowship with other citizens and with active duty and retired military and police who simply pledge to honor their oath and obey the Constitution. It was to prevent just such outrageous content based persecution of political dissidents that our First Amendment was written.”

It is outrageous that a court would even consider agreeing to an American’s 1st (right to free speech in joining whatever political associations they choose) and 2nd Amendent (right to bear arms) rights to be considered as a reason to remove their child/ren from their care!

Well due to the media coverage and the efforts of the Oath Keepers organization and the many patriots who showed up for the rally from all over the country, the baby was returned to the parents last night, after 6 days in the state’s custody! The American people showed up in force, peacefully assembled with signs and flags and showed the court and the authorities that we are no longer going to idly stand by and allow them to tread on and erode our constitutional rights…. and they LISTENED!
I’m so very glad to have attended the rally and that the parents were able to get their baby returned!

GOD BLESS AMERICA and her patriots…. LET FREEDOM RING!!!!!
