ELDER PATRIOT – In 1775, a small group of American colonists were engaged by the British army outside of Boston.  Eight members of the colonial militia lost their lives in the conflict.  These eight men, though mostly lost to history, laid the foundation for the beginnings of the United States of America.  Because of their sacrifice the enraged colonists rallied together to intercept the British at Concord where the British army suffered heavy casualties.  That was enough to sway the colonists in favor of separation from England and eventually our Constitutional republic was born.

Today, 240 years later, another group of brave militiamen are seeking to protect and enforce that same Constitution that is the legacy of our original militias.  They’re attempting to do it peacefully and in accordance with the Constitution, itself.

Capitol Police have been alerted by Jon Ritzheimer that he is working closely with a Michigan militia group with the intention of arresting Senator Debbie Stabenow for treason under Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution:

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Ritzheimer says his militia will not be finished with arrest of Stabenow but that they “will continue to move across the country and arrest everyone involved with the Iran Nuke Deal” including the president.

Frankly, it’s difficult to dismiss Ritzheimer’s charges of treason under the Constitution’s definition in light of the wholly one-sided deal those he’s charging have signed into law.  Starting with the fact that the leadership of this terrorist state has sworn to kill us, the deal includes the lifting of economic sanctions freeing $280 billion to Iran, another $100 billion of U.S. taxpayer money being given to Iran ostensibly as aid, and a path to nuclear weapons.  In return we got nothing unless you think getting to watch their progress in the development of nuclear weapons with sixty days advance notice of our inspection team’s visit is a key point. 

It’s only been fourteen years since George Bush identified Iran as a primary member of the Axis of Evil.  They have done nothing since then to change that.  If anything they have enhanced their position as the world’s number one financier of terrorism.  Quotes such as: “Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar, Allah Akbar, Khameini is the leader.  Death to the opposers of the rule of jurisprudence.  Death to America,” are commonly sprinkled throughout the speeches of their highest leaders.

Now we are giving Iran $380 billion that they will use to spread their hatred, destruction and death in the United States and globally.  It’s surprising that our allies – if we have any true allies left – have remained silent as they are certain to suffer the consequences of this “deal” as well.  Considering the manner in which this president and this congress have worked to destabilize the Middle East it appears they are laying the ground work for a new world war.

I suppose it was inevitable that we, the people would be left to protect the Constitution and restore the Rule of Law once Barack Obama was elected to the presidency and set about dismantling and corrupting the institutions that made America great, damaging our relationships with our allies and sidling up to totalitarian regimes, ignoring the people’s Constitutional protections, and governing with complete disregard for half the population. 

This could all have been prevented if the Republican Party hadn’t been corrupted by the likes of Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, both of who consistently delivered the votes Obama needed to advance his destructive agenda for America, but had instead stayed true to its roots.

Speaking at ceremonies commemorating the fortieth anniversary of the allied landing at Normandy, the great American President Ronald Reagan said, “Something else helped the men of D-day: their rock-hard belief that Providence would have a great hand in the events that would unfold here; that God was an ally in this great cause.”

If this is the moment when Americans deeply rooted in our country’s great heritage begin the heavy lift of taking back their country, we ask God almighty to once again watch over our nation and grant us patience and resolve in all that is to come.

May God bless America.
