Operation Sleeping Giant

America’s veterans truly are like a sleeping giant. It’s time to awaken them to the danger facing our Republic and their oath-sworn responsibilities to save it. Our Constitution hangs by a thread. If we wake the veterans up, this Republic will be saved. If we don’t, this Republic will fall. It’s as simple as that.
Let’s WAKE THEM UP so they can help us wake up, and lead, the whole country.

Each of us who served are still bound by our oaths to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and we must acknowledge that it has been because of our neglect of our duties, because of our negligence, that our nation has come to this. As veterans, our oath is not fulfilled merely by voting, or even by being willing to fight for our nation if that time should come again. We also have a responsibility to resurrect and rebuild the core institutions of a free people that we have allowed to wither and die away. We have an obligation to strengthen our states from the bottom up so we can weather any storm and resist any attempt to finally snuff out the light of liberty. We should be doing that anyway, because that is what it means to be a free, sovereign people in free, sovereign states. But this is all the more important because right now we face the very real possibility of an economic collapse. And that is why we have launched Operation Sleeping Giant. Help us get it off to a strong start.

The more money we raise during this Donation Drive, the faster we can reach EVERY veteran and veteran organization in America to wake them up and fire them up to stand up now and do what must be done to save our Republic and defend the Constitution. We will be sending speakers to veterans group meetings and events across the country, placing ads on veterans websites and in veterans magazines, and using every other means available to reach ALL of the veterans and wake them up.

If we reach veterans fast and “reactivate” them, with their leadership we can get our neighborhoods, towns, counties and states squared away so we won’t be weak and desperate when the fiat money system crashes. The stronger We the People are within our states, the less pretext there will be for “martial law” during a crisis and the less likely the current serving military and police will be to go along with it.

The more wide awake and prepared the veterans are, the more they can lead their neighbors in weathering the storm without sacrificing liberty on the alter of temporary security. And the veterans can lead the people in standing up and defending the powers reserved to the states or to the people (see the 10th Amendment), resisting the liberty crushing plans of the political and financial elites who intend to use chaos as an excuse to scrap our Constitution and national sovereignty once and for all.

Time is short, and we must get the veterans to focus on:

1. Economic security and independence (at individual, town, county, and state level). We will be working closely with

2. Food, fuel, emergency medical, and communications security and independence (again, as individuals, neighborhoods, local communities, counties, and states)

3. Physical security, to include neighborhood watches, a Sheriff’s Posse (staffed by volunteers, but under direct command of the Sheriff), and a real-deal, honest to God public militia, which will also be a public institution established by the county but staffed by volunteers, and eventually established at the state level (using the research and model bills of Dr. Edwin Vieira).

4. State sovereignty and political independence. Veterans must kick the bums out (as GOOOH recommends), & vote only for proven constitutionalists who have the guts to defend the Constitution and enforce its boundaries. It is vital that we have strong states that will enforce the Tenth Amendment, using nullification of unconstitutional laws, as urged by the Tenth Amendment Center. (

Once gain, we should be doing all of the above anyway, because that’s what it means to be a free people in free, sovereign states, in a constitutional republic, but it is especially crucial as we face the prospects of a coming economic collapse. Time is short, so please help us spread the message to all veterans and all Americans, and turn the tide.

Second Amendment in Jeopardy? Martial Law?

Don’t think so? Think some are being alarmists and doom sayers? Well then, read the following I got in an email from Solutions From Science. It just may change your way of thinking!

I don’t consider myself a conspiracy theorist. In fact, I’ve always tried not to make more out of things than they appear on the surface. Most of the time life just is, and mankind doesn’t seem intelligent enough to conspire in such convoluted ways as some folks would like to postulate. The elite like to think they’re of a class of their own, but in all reality, they’re so puffed up with themselves and pride that they are of no earthly good. They have the wherewithal to make mischief … and a lot of it. But I’ve never thought that they were as far-sighted with their planning as some would have us believe. Greed and the desire for raw power doesn’t utilize strategic planning or patience very well.

However, it doesn’t mean that leaders or those in power can’t look back on past actions by previous administrations and decide to take advantage of laws, treaties, partnerships, agreements, or executive orders passed.

For instance, through the Security and Prosperity Partnership, the nations of Mexico, Canada, and the United States have “volunteered” their military forces in the event of a national emergency in any of the three countries. Mind you, this is not a formal treaty. It has no congressional oversight, and Congress has never authorized it. No, the SPP is a “dialogue” between the three countries. (Now what a “dialogue” is and how it’s different from a formal treaty is obviously above my paygrade, because this thing looks like a treaty to me…)

And it wouldn’t take something like a civil war to call on these other nations for assistance. No, now, through executive orders, the president has the authority to declare a national emergency if, for instance, he feels the Internet is being compromised. (And that’s just one scenario.) Of course the definition of “compromised” is left up to those in power, so by definition “compromised” means whatever they want it to mean.

Now, take that a step further. The president has just used his authority to activate an Internet “kill” switch. Millions of people are instantly out of work. People are getting angry, and they want some answers. Without the Internet, computers, supply systems, transportation systems–everything is useless. People are tired of being manipulated by their government, and they’re not taking it anymore. That’s when the president calls upon that “dialogue” his predecessor had with Mexico and Canada,

and before you know it, you’ve got foreign troops enforcing martial law in your city.

It doesn’t even have to be an Internet kill switch scenario. How about mass panic because of a perceived “pandemic?” (Can anyone say H1N1?) How about any number of things? The president has the power, because of the actions of previous administrations, to define what “is” is … and there is not one blessed thing Congress can do about it for six months. That’s right–they can’t even contest it to the judicial branch.

This whole thing sounds a little far-fetched, doesn’t it? Well, how about this from the Daily Paul Liberty Forum from 2008?
On February 14, at the U.S. Army North headquarters, Fort Sam Houston, Texas, U.S. Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, and Canadian Air Force Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command, signed “a Civil Assistance Plan that allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a civil emergency,” according to the USNORTHCOM website. Billed as a “bilateral military plan” to align U.S. and Canadian “national military plans to respond quickly to … requests for military support of civil authorities,” the plan represents nothing short of a merging of national military infrastructures under the aegis of the North American Union.

And now the Obama administration is trying to play fast and loose with the Second Amendment.

According to the Huffington Post (hardly a bastion of conservative thought):
The Department of Justice held the first in what is expected to be a series of meetings on Tuesday afternoon with a group of stakeholders in the ongoing gun-policy debates….officials said part of the discussion was expected to center around the White House’s options for shaping policy on its own or through its adjoining agencies and departments….Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering.

There you have it. The president is actively seeking to “affect” your second amendment rights without congressional involvement at all. He intends to take any tack he can that doesn’t include the Congress or the American people. He honestly feels he can rule by fiat. His disdain for the Constitution is amazing.

Guns are for more than self-protection. Guns also allow us to hunt and feed ourselves if we so choose. That the United States government would feel that we should not be allowed that constitutional right is mind-boggling. And when honest citizens no longer have access to weapons, that means the criminal element will be free to prey on whomever they choose.
