Red Flag White Flag Surrender

 

Once again the people of this Republic have been challenged by a great crisis in our midst and, once again, politicians are doing everything in their power to do everything but address the crisis with a solution. For politicians, in keeping with the teachings of Rahm Emmanuel, a crisis, however great or small, is an opportunity for advancement of agenda not solutions. For leaders of this ilk, our society of today is rife with opportunity for advancement of leftists ideals.

The open war upon our children in our schools has shown a glaring light upon damaged individuals who are willing to focus their demented hatred on this Nation’s softest targets, our children. But the glare of scrutiny is being shifted away, by opportunistic punditry, from the most telling question of all: Why? Why are public schools our nation’s softest targets, why is mental illness so high among our youth, and why are the laws, in place to deal with the mentally ill, repeatedly ignored?

Instead, politicians call for new legislation, new opportunities to increase their power to “address” a problem they’ve already ignored. Such is the Red Flag gun control legislation being foisted upon the people of Maine. So while good people are asking for answers to the problems in our mental health system, politicians respond, sensing an opportunity to exploit the hurt, rage, and confusion of honest citizens, to further the end game of gun confiscation.

The Red Flag gives law enforcement the authority to confiscate the weapons of a citizen if an significant other perceives or believes the owner of the weapons is a threat for violence or mentally ill. If enacted, Red Flag becomes an end-a-round the Constitution and perception, instead of evidence, becomes the means of conviction. Striking while emotions are high and hot has been the most effective means of leftist activist for centuries and history’s violent cycle is at our door again.

Make no mistake, the final goal of all gun control legislation is confiscation. Perception is the malleable threshold gun control activists have dreamed of to make that end goal a reality. For in the end, those who hold the standards, in laws based on perception, have the ultimate power to manipulate the lives of their fellow Americans.

The Left has long decried the negative restraints of the Constitution. They have used and are using the time proven albeit infamous tactics to subvert civil law and a Constitutional Republic: Crisis, violence, popular emotion, mob rule, public shaming, negative perception, and intimidation. This all in an effort to create an atmosphere were laws and law enforcement is based on emotion and perception.

Who interprets the validity of the perception? The Truth in what is perceived? Is it the same government that regularly dismisses those that criticize it as small minded or mentally ill?

Or will it be the media elites of our country who sniff disdainfully at those who embrace the beliefs of Christianity as being mentally ill? Or those same elites and politicians who blame the over six million members of the NRA, who have never committed a crime, for the mindless killing of our children and label those God-fearing law-abiding citizens as terrorists? Should we allow politicians this authority to regulate the powers of perception over our lives when they embrace and defend MS-13, Ha-mas, and, in turn, disparage, denigrate their own citizens they are sworn with oath to defend?

Red Flag legislation is just another gateway legislation to confiscation. It is agenda based, not solutions based, with a goal for power that is easily manipulated to target those deemed unfit by the powers that be or think they should be. This should be a red flag to people of common sense not to wave the white flag in the midst of emotion and surrender Rights dearly paid for.

History teaches us that each step down the road towards weapons confiscation is a step irreversible with dire consequences, with all the dismissive retorts of conspiracy notwithstanding, which have been heard before. Instead of relinquishing our rights to trial, redress, and defense, we should be demanding our government enforce the laws given. It is to this end that our Founders foresaw that we should be armed for if we are uncomfortable with the government’s perception of us now, imagine if we are unarmed.

The Intellectualism of Stupidity (Requiem)

As violence fills our streets, the shouts of angry decadents spewing the reasoning for their debased acts are simply the outer rotting layers to the cancer that lies beneath. Generations of youths without a family structure to instill a code of decency, law, and order. Angrily they are tearing down the structure they have been taught to hate, while no one is doing anything to protect the foundation that holds it up. More quickly now, we are pulled towards the ghosts of civilizations past to either learn from them or join them.

So we gather here for our requiem. To recollect, review the arguments proposed from all sides of the political spectrum against the defense of the Marriage Construct. All of our political parties, our media, our entertainers, and sadly even some of our religious leaders have abandoned fact, history, and reason for the heady, temporal approval of the popular swell of societal fads. Popularity takes precedence in a win now culture.

The writing on the wall would suggest this writer has embarked upon a lost cause. The gathering of forces against the very foundation of the nation, the defection of expected allies, and the mounting apathy and fatigue with defending the structure of life should be a signal to wave the white flag of surrender. Yet, it is a very different signal.

A signal of the mass disdain and ignorance of the very destruction this societal stupor is inflicting upon their own existence, which begs a voice to still call out a warning and fasten a hand to the lanyard of the bell that tolls the doom of a nation. These patterns in history are here for our warning. We cannot ignore what has happened to every civilization before us.

We are not exempt. We are not unique. We are human.

But here are the arguments we give. We breathlessly await our opportunity to join the ruins of humanity. Our intellectual recipe for societal suicide.

We have no right to tell people what they can do in their bedrooms. I would agree if Marriage was simply about sexual pleasure, but sex is only one facet of marriage. The Marriage Construct is the structure that every civilized society has used to safely promote the propagation and culturing of life, the building block of civilization. It is the security of the nation.

It is cruel and intolerant to say that marriage is for heterosexuals alone. That very well may be true but facts and history are usually cold and cruel. They are dead, lifeless, and enjoy the luxury of being completely devoid of emotion. The Heterosexual Marriage Tradition, The Marriage Construct, was created by heterosexuals for heterosexuals who are engaged in the activity of creating life. It belongs to the creators who designed it as the structure for the propagation and cultivation of life.

Everyone has the Right to Marriage. Wrong! Marriage is not a right. It is a Rite. It is a Religious Rite for some and a Rite of Passage for most heterosexuals. We have a right to Rites, but no one has the right to get married.

Our Constitution doesn’t protect Traditional Marriage. The document in its whole is a defense of the Marriage Construct. Not only does it explicitly protect Religious Rites and the peaceful and non-violent societal rites of the many ethnicities in our Nation, but all of our rights and liberties our predicated upon life. It is the ideal that these liberties are endowed, stamped in our being in the womb by God.

Every civilization has used its Marriage Construct to cultivate the ideals of their society into the next generations. As we decimate our Marriage Construct, so our ideals of liberty are being decimated before us. The ideals the document protects must be cultivated in the life it heralds.

We cannot push our religious beliefs on others. No, we can’t. But marriage is not a religious belief. For many throughout time’s civilizations there has been a religious aspect to the Heterosexual Marriage Tradition that gave the Rite a sense of sanctity and emphasized fidelity, but not everyone that marries and has children is religious. The Marriage Construct is the structure that every civilized society has used to safely promote the propagation and culturing of life, the building block of civilization. It is the security of the nation.

It is not going to hurt anyone to let loving couples marry. In a romance novel culture this a shock but love is not the primary purpose of marriage. In many civilizations in history, love was a by-product of marriage agreement, if you were lucky. While we should be thankful for love and its place in our societal traditions for marriage, let’s not lose sight of the fact that every healthy and growing civilization throughout history has stood upon a Marriage Construct that was focused upon the healthy propagation and cultivation of life.

We will lose elections if we defend the Marriage Construct. The foundation of our civilization should not be validated or denigrated by the ever changing winds of political expediency, polling and punditry which is historically proven wrong by the end of a political cycle. Furthermore, it is laughable that so many of our political leaders from all political parties are so blinded by the intellectual stupor of our day that they cannot see the reams of studies that conclude that the strength of a society is directly related to the strength of the heterosexual family. Whether it is this drunken stupor or by willful ignorance that we stubbornly refuse to see blaze of the trail left for us by ruins of history, the studies of learned men, and the common sense of nature, we stumble blindly on oblivious to our crumbling Empire,a self-inflicted demise.

We have to accept people just as they are. No, we don’t. This is the foundation of our nation. The means by which we cultivate life, the future of our nation. Any builder can attest without exception that compromise and acceptance of such in the foundation of a structure is a recipe for disaster.

It is Settled Law. The most ruinous and apathetically small-minded argument of all. This a Republic. There is no such thing as settled law. All laws are subject to review and repeal by the citizens of the Republic. If settled law was valid, then those who have sought and succeeded in the destruction of the Marriage Construct would have had no avenue to bring us to the destination and traverse where we now stand in debate.

Without life there is no living and without living there is no life. It is for us to decide the fate of our nation. The Tree of Liberty is dying. The cause is a simple diagnosis. Its roots of Life, its Endowment are dying.

Our political leaders are weak and afford us no hope of a cure. While they add packages to the limbs, burdening the branches to the breaking point, and prune the withering leaves, they ignore the root of the problem, our life is waning. The Marriage Construct, The Heterosexual Marriage Tradition is the protector, cultivator of that life. Without Life there is no Living, Without Living there is no Life.

POLIQUIN’S STATEMENT ON THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION’S PLAN TO CLOSE GUANTANAMO

February 23, 2016
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Maine’s Second District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, released the following statement on President Obama’s plan to shut down the Guantanamo Bay prison:

 

“President Obama has demonstrated, yet again, that he puts his party’s politics before protecting the American People,” said Congressman Poliquin.  “The transfer of dangerous, radicalized terrorists to American soil threatens the safety of citizens across our country.

 

“Not only is the President’s plan dangerous and senseless, but it is indisputably illegal.  President Obama himself signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act of 2016 (NDAA), which specifically restricts any transfer of detainees from Guantanamo Bay prison.  In his address this morning, the President even acknowledged that his proposal must pass through Congress because he does not have the authority to do this unilaterally.

 

“Our Nation faces countless threats from enemies around the world every day.  This Administration should be focusing on protecting Americans and strengthening our national security, not fulfilling its political agenda.”
