State Defense Forces

State Defense Forces
The Constitutional Peoples State Militia

Is state session coming?  As of 2010, 23 states and territories have organized State Defense Forces, 14 of the governors have now been served with a warning by America’s Fuehrer, Barack Hussein Obama, to STAND DOWN, CEASE AND DESIST, or be charged with...TREASON?  Can you believe this?

Just in case you are wondering just where you and the many states stand historically and constitutionally in relation to the Federal Government on this issue, then this is for you my friend.

A growing number of state governors are re-establishing State Defense Forces, also known as State Guards, State Military Reserves, and State Militias.  These forces are under the direct authority of the governor of the state and are not subject to federal control.  They can be readily deployed when needed, anywhere in the state for any reason.

As of 2010, 23 states and territories still have organized State Defense Forces (SDFs) with approximately 18,000 members (and growing).  SDFs were established by federal and state law at the very beginning of our country’s history.  They have played important roles over the years in helping to defend our nation, however, due to state budget deficits; more than half of the SDFs have sadly become a thing of the past.

It has been repeatedly reported that President Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of multiple accounts of treason against the people and the Constitution of the United States.  He has not been officially charged with any of his many federal crimes because he controls US Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice (Holder is just as guilty of treason as is Obama).  The rest of Congress is either too spineless or fearful to say or do anything about it, ‘and/or’ they are not getting the needed support and/or pressure from “You The People”.

But let someone else try to stand up against Obama’s Gestapo and Obama is the first one to start hollering TREASON!  Well isn’t that the “Pot Calling The Kettle Black”.

Readying the American states for secession                                           
According to a recent report, 14 governors have been working to reinstate SDFs in their states.  Governors Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and Rick Perry of Texas have been organizing the drive to get more states to re-establish their SDFs.

The report goes on to say that each of the 14 governors have now received National Security Letters from the Obama regime demanding that they halt the formation of their SDFs or face charges of treason.  It seems that since Obama has drastically reduced the size of the Congressional U.S. military and that their forces are stretched thin with troops still in Afghanistan and Iraq that it is because he fears rebellion from the states.  Well…he should!

Further evidence of his fear of a rebellion or revolution is the fact that he has nationalized all of the state National Guard units.  And this my friend is the obvious reason; he has had his Department of Homeland Security (His private military) purchase over 2 billion rounds of ammunition and thousands of fully automatic assault rifles as well as hundreds of armored vehicles.  This is the Personal Army that Obama promised, and’ although it is funded by congress, it is answerable only to him.

It is typical of Obama to bully everyone and anyone who stands up to him and does not bow down and kiss their bottoms goodbye for him.  He’s tried this with many states when they passed voter ID laws.  He bullied and harassed Sheriff Joe Arpaio because he dared to defy Obama and investigate Obama’s birth certificate.  Obama sued the State of Arizona for enforcing a law that he’ illegally failed to enforce.

President Obama is the most corrupt and despicable president our country has ever had.  He considers himself to be above the people, above law, above Congress above the Constitution and above Almighty God. 

He is still actively engaged in giving aide and support to our enemies in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and the Hamas in Gaza, just to name a few which are definable terms for the charge of treason according to the US Constitution.  He is not acting as our president but rather our dictator.  He’s not any different than Fidel Castro, Stalin or Hitler, or any other dictator in history.  I mean if it walks like a duck’ folks…

If the report on the governors receiving National Security Letters is true, then America could well be on the verge of a national showdown between state governors and the Obama Gestapo.  What better way is it for Obama to rid himself of some of his most ardent state opposition leaders than to start charging them with treason, the very crime that he is guilty of several times over?

The two Governors leading this move to reinstate and build up SDFs are Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota; and Rick Perry, Governor of Texas.  Both of these State Governors stated they have: “…deep fear the President is destroying their Nation.”

Governor Pawlenty’s fear of Obama is that since Obama took office he has appeased America’s enemies as he has shunned some of America’s strongest allies, especially Israel.  Governor Perry has also declared that Obama is punishing his State of Texas by dumping tens-of-thousands of illegal Mexican immigrants into the cities and small towns of Texas.  Governor Perry further recently stated, “If Barack Obama doesn’t stop being so oppressive, Texans might feel compelled to renounce their American citizenry and secede from the union.”  GO PERRY!

So how did we get to such a state of affairs?  Well if one knows the Constitution, and has at least some knowledge of American history and has some ability to think independently, one would understand that this started a long time ago, 100 years to date.  In 1913 one of the several fatal moves that we the people allowed Congress to make was the passage of the 17th Amendment which totally disconnected the state Governors and legislators from having any representation in Congress, effectively changing the American Republic into a true Democracy, something greatly feared by the Framers.  Prior to 1913 and the passage of the 17th Amendment the state governments voted directly for federal Senators, who were their representatives in the “State House” or the U.S. Senate.  The people already had their direct representatives as we do today in the “Peoples House”.  So today, the U.S. Senate represents no one but themselves.  If this were 1912 instead of 2013 the State Legislators could warn their Senators to either abide by the Constitution or we will boot you out pronto.  Now the states must either give up their rights or fight for them in a court of law sometimes also rigged by the ‘Federal Regime’…

Today 14 United State Governors: Prepare State Militia Defenses, To Be Ready Against Obama’s Rogue Federal Forces called Home land Security!

And so just where do you and the states stand in relation to the Federal Government if push comes to shove in accordance with constitutional law and hisotry?

Read and learn my friend
On September 17, 1787 George Washington was the first to sign and accept the Constitution even though it had no Bill of Rights.  It was Patrick Henry (God bless him) with his great speeches and lectures who in 1788 forced an agreement which promised that continued state ratifications of the document depended solely upon a Bill of Rights to be forthcoming.

In 1789 when Washington took office he was faced with the arduous task of pioneering the first presidency including the structuring of the state militia system.  By January 1790 the influence Patrick Henry had over him became quite apparent.  When Washington chaired the 1787 Constitutional Convention, provisions had been made for the defense of the country against invasion and for stifling rebellions, but there was an insufficiency of safeguards to be applied against tyranny that could be brought on by elitist public officials in the Federal Government.

By 1790 Washington began work on his “Plan No. 2 for the Organization of the Militia.”  By now he was more able to see the weaknesses in the Constitution itself.  He openly discussed the threat of tyranny emanating from within the government.  By then, Patrick Henry’s wisdom had spread throughout the 13 original states, and it was inculcated as the basis for the policies and functions of the militia. Patrick Henry perpetuated the people’s liberty and sustained the ultimate authority of the people. 

Washington well understood the need to safeguard the nation from its foreign enemies.  In his “Plan No. 2 for the Organization of the Militia” he undertook to warn about the dangers of “domestic enemies”: identified as ‘tyranny in government’. 

George Washington himself took the farmers out for practice.  He utilized the knowledge and experiences of his generals and other valuable officers in the War for Independence by having them instruct and train the citizens (the whole people) in the techniques of soldiering, and the maintenance of an ‘energetic national peoples militia’ and that it should be armed as well as the Federal Forces.

His “Plan No. 2 for the Organization of the Militia” was communicated to the Senate, on the 21st of January 1790.  This lengthy Plan was permeated with the proposition that it is the direct duty and responsibility of ‘the people’ themselves to guard against tyranny from within government.

Washington declared that the purpose of the people’s militia was “to oppose the introduction of tyranny.”  He, with the help and influence of Patrick Henry, had come a long way from the days when he accepted the Constitution without a Bill of Rights.

He warned, “The government would be invaded or overturned, and trampled upon by the bold and ambitious” — meaning elitist people in our own country who operated without adherence to vital principles and/or the law.

The absoluteness of the right of the people to keep and bear arms was then, and is now, a basic principle.  Unless the right to arms is absolute, the people cannot remain the ultimate and absolute power.  The Bill of Rights confirmed that we possess many other rights beside the absolute right to arms.  All of the other rights for the preservation of their own existence depend entirely upon the absoluteness, the force, and the reasoning that have shaped the Second Amendment.  Washington agreed with Patrick Henry on the purpose of the militia: It was to “oppose the introduction of tyranny.”  Make no mistake about it: The prime reason for the Second Amendment and the people’s militia is prevention of tyranny in government.  Something we are now facing!

To view Washington’s statement in the context in which it was delivered, please look over the following excerpt below taken from Pages 7-8 of an old document published by Gales and Seaton in 1832 entitled…  “American State Papers – Documents, Legislative and Executive, of the Congress of the United States, from the First Session of the First to the Second Session of the Fifteenth Congress, inclusive: commencing March 3, 1789, and ending March 3, 1819”.

This excerpt below is a part of Washington’s lengthy Plan No. 2 of 1790.  While he also referred to the prevention of invasion and rebellion, Washington said “the well informed members of the community (the people) were meant to be the real defense of the country”; and “the virtues and knowledge of the people would effectually oppose the introduction of tyranny.”


An energetic national militia is to be regarded as the capital security of a free republic, and not a standing army, forming a distinct class in the community.

It is the introduction and diffusion of vice, and corruption of manners, into the mass of the people that renders a standing army necessary.  It is when public spirit is despised, and avarice, indolence, and effeminacy of manners predominate, and prevent the establishment of institutions which would elevate the minds of the youth in the paths of virtue and honor, that a standing army is formed and riveted forever.

While the human character remains unchanged, and societies and governments of considerable extent are formed, a principle ever ready to execute the laws, and defend the state, must constantly exist.

Without this vital principle, the government would be invaded or overturned, and trampled upon by the bold and ambitious.  No community can be long held together, unless its arrangements are adequate to its probable exigencies.

If it should be decided to reject a standing army for the military branch of the government of the United States, as possessing too fierce an aspect, and being hostile to the principles of liberty, it will follow that a well constituted militia ought to be established.  [Certainly this situation exists today]

The well informed members of the community, actuated by the highest motives of self-love, would form the real defense of the country.  Rebellions would be prevented or suppressed with ease; invasions of such a government would be undertaken only by mad men; and the virtues and knowledge of the people would effectually oppose the introduction of tyranny.

But the second principle, a militia of substitutes, is pregnant, in a degree, with the mischief’s of a standing army; as it is highly probable the substitutes from time to time will be nearly the same men, and the most idle and worthless part of the community. Wealthy families, proud of distinctions which riches may confer, will prevent their sons from serving in the militia of substitutes; the plan will degenerate into habitual contempt; a standing army will be introduced, and the liberties of the people subjected to all the contingencies of events.

The expense attending an energetic establishment of militia may be strongly urged as an objection to the institution.  But it is to be remembered; that this objection is leveled at both systems, whether by rotation or by substitutes: for, if the numbers are equal, the expense will also be equal.  The estimate of the expense will show its unimportance, when compared with the magnitude and beneficial effects of the institution.

But the people of the United States will cheerfully consent to the expenses of a measure calculated to serve as a perpetual barrier to their liberties; especially as they well know that the disbursements will be made among the members of the same community, and therefore cannot be injurious.

Every intelligent mind would rejoice in the establishment of an institution, under whose auspices the youth and vigor of the constitution would be renewed with each successive generation, and which would appear to secure the great principles of freedom and happiness against the injuries of time and events.

The following plan is formed on these general principles:

First, That it is the indispensable duty of every nation to establish all necessary institutions for its own perfection and defense.

Secondly, that it is a capital security to a free state, for the great body of the people to possess a competent knowledge of the military art.

Thirdly, That this knowledge cannot be attained, in the present state of society, but by establishing adequate institutions for the military education of youth; and that the knowledge acquired therein should be diffused throughout the community by the principles of rotation.

Fourthly, That every man of the proper age, and ability of body, is firmly bound, by the social compact, to perform, personally, his proportion of military duty for the defence of the state.

Fifthly, That all men, of the legal military age, should be armed, enrolled, and held responsible for different degrees of military service.

And Sixthly, That agreeably to the constitution, the United States are to provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining the militia, and for governing such a part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States; reserving to the States, respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia, according to the discipline prescribed by Congress.”

THE BOTTOM LINE:  I hope this sheds some light on, where not only the states stand, in relation to the Federal Government, but where do you stand as an individual in relation to the Federal Government.  One must understand that the many states are sovereign just as America is a sovereign Nation.  And the governments serve at the pleasure of the people of the many states. 

The little known and most often overlooked Ninth’ and the Tenth’ Amendments come into play here. The Ninth Amendment, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”  The Framers did not intend that the first eight amendments be construed to exhaust the basic and fundamental rights of the people...  I do not mean to imply that the...  Ninth Amendment constitutes an independent source of rights protected from infringement by either the States or the Federal Government...  While the Ninth Amendment - and indeed the entire Bill of Rights - originally concerned restrictions upon federal power, the subsequently enacted Fourteenth Amendment prohibits the States as well from abridging fundamental personal liberties.  And, the Ninth Amendment, in indicating that not all such liberties are specifically mentioned in the first eight amendments, is surely relevant in showing the existence of other fundamental personal rights, now protected from state, as well as federal, infringement.  In summery, the Ninth Amendment simply lends strong support to the view that the "liberty" protected by the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments from infringement by the Federal Government or the States is not restricted to rights specifically mentioned in the first eight amendments. -- Cf. United Public Workers v. Mitchell, 330 U.S. 75, 94-95.

All of the very few rights and powers of the Federal Government are listed in the Constitution – all of the rights of the people are not!

And the Tenth Amendment The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”  The Tenth Amendment was added to the Constitution of 1787 largely because of the intellectual influence and personal persistence of the Anti-Federalist and their allies.

It’s quite clear that the Tenth Amendment was written to emphasize the limited nature of the powers delegated to the federal government.  In delegating just specific powers to the federal government, the states and the people, with some small exceptions, were free to continue exercising their sovereign powers.

When states and local communities take the lead on policy, the people are that much closer to the policymakers, and policymakers are that much more accountable to the people.  Few Americans have spoken with their president; many however have spoken with their mayors and/or councilmen, many with their state assemblymen and some even with their Governor.

The Tenth Amendment clearly states unless the specific power is listed in the body of the constitution it is left to the many states and/or to the PEOPLE my friend.  

If one would read through the constitution looking for all the powers that Obama is exercising, one would find very few.

Adherence to the Tenth Amendment is the first step towards ensuring liberty in the United States.

This would be Liberty Through Decentralization…
