Recognizing that we each swore an
oath to support and defend the Con-
stitution against all enemies, foreign
und domesLIc, und uIhrmIng LIuL we
are guardians of the Republic, of the
principles in our Declaration of In-
dependence, and of the rights of our
peopIe, we uIhrm und decIure LIe
1. We will NOT obey any or-
der to disarm the American
The attempt to disarm the people
on April 19, 1775 was the spark of
open conßIcL In LIe AmerIcun Revo-
IuLIon. TIuL vIIe uLLempL wus un ucL
of war, and the American people
IougIL buck In jusLIhed, rIgILeous
self-defense of their natural rights.
Any such order today would also be
an act of war against the American
people, and thus an act of treason.
We will not make war on our own
people, and we will not commit trea-
son by obeying any such treasonous
Nor will we assist, or support any
such attempt to disarm the people
bv oLIer governmenL enLILIes, eILIer
state or federal.
2. We will NOT obey any order
to conduct warrantless search-
es of the American people,
their homes, vehicles, papers,
or effects -- such as warrant-
less house-to house searches
for weapons or persons.
One of the causes of the American
RevoIuLIon wus LIe use oI ¨wrILs oI
assistance,” which were essentially
warrantless searches because there
was no requirement to demonstrate
probubIe cuuse Lo u judge. TIe hrsL
herv embers oI AmerIcun resIsLunce
were born in opposition to those in-
famous writs. The Founders consid-
ered all warrantless searches to be
unreasonable and egregious. The
Fourth Amendment was written to
prevenL u repeuL oI sucI vIoIuLIons oI
the right of the people to be secure
in their persons, houses, papers,
and effects.
3. We will NOT obey any order
to detain American citizens as
“unlawful enemy combatants”
or to subject them to trial by
military tribunal.
One of the causes of the American
RevoIuLIon wus LIe denIuI oI LIe rIgIL
to jury trial, the use of admiralty
courts (military tribunals) instead,
and the application of the laws of
war to the colonists. After that expe-
rience, and being well aware of the
infamous Star Chamber in English
history, the Founders ensured that
the international laws of war would
apply only to foreign enemies, not to
the American people. Thus, the Ar-
ticle III Treason Clause establishes
the only constitutional form of trial
Ior un AmerIcun (noL servIng In LIe
military) who is accused of making
war on his own nation. Such a trial
Ior Lreuson musL be beIore u cIvIIIun
jury, not a tribunal.
The international laws of war do
not trump our Bill of Rights. We re-
ject as illegitimate any such claimed
power, as did the Supreme Court in
Ex Parte Milligan (1865). Any at-
tempt to apply the laws of war to
AmerIcun cIvIIIuns, under unv pre-
LexL, sucI us uguInsL domesLIc ¨mI-
IILIu¨ groups LIe governmenL brunds
¨domesLIc LerrorIsLs,¨ Is un ucL oI wur
and an act of treason.
4. We will NOT obey orders to
impose martial law or a “state
of emergency” on a state, or to
enter with force into a state,
without the express consent
and invitation of that state’s
legislature and governor.
One of the causes of the American
RevoIuLIon wus LIe uLLempL ¨Lo ren-
der the Military independent of and
superIor Lo LIe CIvII Power¨ bv dIs-
banding the Massachusetts legisla-
ture and appointing General Gage as
¨mIIILurv governor.¨ TIe uLLempL Lo
disarm the people of Massachusetts
during that martial law sparked our
Accordingly, the power to impose
murLIuI Iuw (LIe ubsoIuLe ruIe over
LIe peopIe bv u mIIILurv oIhcer wILI
his will alone being law) is nowhere
enumerated in our Constitution.
Further, it is the militia of a state
und oI LIe severuI sLuLes LIuL LIe
Constitution contemplates being
used during any emergency within a
state, not the standing army.
The imposition of martial law by
LIe nuLIonuI governmenL over u sLuLe
and its people, treating them as an
occupied enemy nation, is an act
of war. Such an attempted suspen-
sion of the Constitution and Bill of
RIgILs voIds LIe compucL wILI LIe
states and with the people.
5. We will NOT obey orders to
invade and subjugate any state
that asserts its sovereignty and
declares the national govern-
ment to be in violation of the
compact by which that state
entered the Union.
In response to the obscene growth
of federal power and to the absurdly
totalitarian claimed powers of the
ExecuLIve, upwurds oI zo sLuLes ure
consIderIng, Iuve consIdered, or
Iuve pussed courugeous resoIuLIons

Those resolutions follow in the
Ionored und revered IooLsLeps oI
Jefferson and Madison in their Ken-
tucky and Virginia Resolutions, and
seek to enforce the Constitution by
uIhrmIng LIe verv sume prIncIpIes oI
our Declaration, Constitution, and
Bill of Rights that we Oath Keepers
recognIze und uIhrm.
Chief among those principles is
LIuL ours Is u duuI sovereIgnLv svs-
tem, with the people of each state
retaining all powers not granted
Lo LIe nuLIonuI governmenL. TIus,

that such a breach has occurred,
we will not obey orders to force that

6. We will NOT obey any or-
der to blockade American cit-
ies, thus turning them into gi-
ant concentration camps.
One of the causes of the American
RevoIuLIon wus LIe bIockude oI Bos-
ton, and the occupying of that city
by the British military, under mar-
tial law. Once hostilities began, the
people of Boston were tricked into
turning in their arms in exchange
for safe passage, but were then for-
bIdden Lo Ieuve. TIuL conhnemenL oI
the residents of an entire city was an
act of war.
Such tactics were repeated by the
Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto, and by
the Imperial Japanese in Nanking,
when entire cities were turned into
death camps. Any such order to dis-
urm und conhne LIe peopIe oI un
American city will be an act of war
and thus an act of treason.
7. We will NOT obey any order
to force American citizens into
any form of detention camps
under any pretext.
Mass, forced internment into con-
centration camps was a hallmark of
everv IuscIsL und communIsL dIcLu-
torship in the 20th Century. Such
InLernmenL wus unIorLunuLeIv even
used against American citizens of
Japanese descent during World War
¡¡. WIenever u governmenL InLerns
its own people, it treats them like an
occupied enemy population.
OppressIve governmenLs oILen use
the internment of women and chil-
dren Lo breuk LIe wIII oI men hgIL-
ing for their liberty, as was done to
the Boers, to the Jewish resisters
in the Warsaw Ghetto, and to the
SucI u vIIe order Lo IorcIbIv InLern
Americans without charges or trial
would be an act of war against the
American people, and thus an act
of treason, regardless of the pretext
used. We will not commit treason,
nor will we facilitate or support it.
8. We will NOT obey orders
to assist or support the use of
any foreign troops on U.S. soil
against the American people to
“keep the peace” or to “main-
tain control” during any emer-
gency, or under any other pre-
text. We will consider such use
of foreign troops against our
people to be an invasion and an
act of war.
DurIng LIe AmerIcun RevoIuLIon,
LIe BrILIsI governmenL enIIsLed LIe
aid of Hessian mercenaries in an
attempt to subjugate the rebellious
American people. Throughout his-
Lorv, repressIve regImes Iuve en-
listed the aid of foreign troops and
Accordingly, the militia of the
severuI sLuLes ure LIe onIv mIIILurv
force contemplated by the Constitu-
tion, in Article I, Section 8, for do-
mestic keeping of the peace. The
use oI even our own sLundIng urmv
for such purposes is without consti-
tutional support, and the use of for-
eign troops and mercenaries against
the people is completely unconsti-
tutional, and an act of war. We will
oppose such troops as enemies of
the people and we will treat all who
requesL, InvILe, und uId LIose IoreIgn
troops as the traitors they are.
9. We will NOT obey any or-
of the American people, includ-
ing food and other essential
supplies, under any emergency
One of the causes of the Ameri-
cun RevoIuLIon wus LIe seIzure und
forfeiture of American ships, goods,
and supplies, along with the seizure
of American timber for the Royal
Nuvv, uII In vIoIuLIon oI LIe peopIe`s
natural right to their property. The
hnuI spurk oI LIe RevoIuLIon wus LIe
uLLempL bv LIe governmenL Lo seIze
powder and cannon stores at Con-
cord, Massachusetts.
DeprIvuLIon oI Iood Ius Iong been
a weapon of war and oppression,
wILI mIIIIons InLenLIonuIIv sLurved
to death by fascist and communist
governmenLs In LIe zoLI CenLurv
Accordingly, we will not obey or
IucIIILuLe orders Lo conhscuLe Iood
and other essential supplies from
the people, and we will consider all
those who issue or carry out such
orders to be the enemies of the peo-
10. We will NOT obey any or-
ders which infringe on the right
of the people to free speech, to
peaceably assemble, and to pe-
tition their government for a
redress of grievances.
TIere wouId Iuve been no AmerI-
cun RevoIuLIon wILIouL herv speuk-
ers and writers such as James Otis,
Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, and
Sum Adums ¨seLLIng brusIhres oI
freedom in the minds of men.”
Tyrants know that the pen of a
man such as Thomas Paine can
cause them more damage than en-
tire armies, and thus they always
seek to suppress the natural rights
of speech, association, and assem-
bly. Without freedom of speech, the
peopIe wIII Iuve no recourse buL Lo
arms. Without freedom of speech
and conscience, there is no freedom.
Therefore, we will not obey or sup-
porL unv orders Lo suppress or vIo-
late the right of the people to speak,
associate, worship, assemble, com-
munIcuLe, or peLILIon governmenL
Ior LIe redress oI grIevunces.
TIe ubove IIsL Is noL exIuusLIve buL
we do consIder LIese ¨Ten Orders¨
to be clear tripwires. They form our
¨IIne In LIe sund,¨ und II we receIve
such orders, we will not obey them.
~ And for the support of this Dec-
IuruLIon, wILI u hrm reIIunce on LIe
proLecLIon oI DIvIne ProvIdence, we
muLuuIIv uIhrm our ouLI und pIedge
Lo eucI oLIer our ¡Ives, our ¡or-
tunes, and our sacred Honor.

Many of our readers are

Edwin Vieira, Jr. For them
this brief note shall be a
pleasant affirmation; but

The man will not take off
his shoes for TSA, so he re-

not simply to intellectual

Rather, it is as well a con-

necessarily does, respon-
sibility for all the deaths,
injuries, and destruction of
property; all the infringe-

By Dr. Chuck Baldwin
One of the tragedies of the
current misled, uninformed,
and otherwise preoccupied
American citizenry is the
seeming apathy regarding
the importance and necessity
of electing constitutionalist
sheriffs. In many ways, State
governors und counLv sIer-
iffs just might be the most
ImporLunL eIecLed oIhces In
America. It is no hyperbole
Lo suv LIuL SLuLe governors
and county sheriffs form the
last line of defense against
tyranny and oppression. If
our governors und sIerIIIs
do not understand the prin-
ciples of freedom and feder-
uIIsm, LIere Is vIrLuuIIv zero
protection against the abuses

tections of freedom.
For example, in an almost

For the record: federal po-

zenry. But BLM might be the
most notorious federal police
agency of all. The tactics BLM
employs against western
landowners sometimes bor-
der on Nazi-like. When the
late, great Helen Chenoweth
was an Idaho congresswom-
an, she tried to raise aware-
ness of (and opposition to)
this out-of-control federal
agency. I urge readers to read
Rep. CIenoweLI`s InLervIew
with Michael Reagan about
this subject. See it at:
According to Rep. Che-
noweLI, ¨B¡M Is LukIng onLo

LIe Inßuence).¨
CIenoweLI conLInued: ¨Our

They really worried about a
national, a federal, law en-
forcement. To federalize our
law enforcement is to create
a situation that the pilgrims
were trying to escape.
¨We ure movIng quIckIv

CIenoweLI udded, ¨¡n LIe

turbing it.”
For the sheriff in Nye Coun-
Lv, Nevudu, B¡M ubrIdgmenLs
of liberty had gone too far.
When BLM threatened to ar-
rest the sheriff if he refused
Lo go uIong wILI B¡M`s IIIeguI

Nye County citizens, Sheriff
Tony DeMeo countered by
telling BLM in no uncertain
terms that should any agent

¨We`d be sLundIng beLween

the last minute, BLM backed
off and the confrontation be-
tween the Nye County sher-

See SIerIII DeMeo`s LesLI-

Sam Adams was sitting at a
writing desk at his home in Bos-
Lon. ¡L wus LIe evenIng oI JuIv 1,
1768. A cool, salty breeze waft-
ing in through the open window
besIde IIm ßuLLered LIe cur-
LuIns und seL IIs cundIe ßIck-
ering. But Sam Adams did not
seem to notice the breeze or the
candle. He was writing intently,
his pen scratching noisily across
the paper in front of him.
Outside his window, the city of
Boston was seething with indig-
nation – again. A month ago,
riots had broken out across the
city when merchant John Han-
cock was arrested and his ship,
the Liberty, impounded for car-
rying contraband. All this trou-
ble stemmed from a recent piece
of legislation passed by
the British parliament,
thousands of miles away
across the ocean that
foamed and sparkled
ouLsIde Sum Adums`s
window. The Townsh-
end Acts followed on the
IeeIs oI LIe verv unpopu-
lar and recently repealed
Stamp Acts. Sam Adams
vIewed LIe TownsIend
Acts as a continued usur-
puLIon oI LIe coIonIsLs`
rights and liberties.
In the Townshend Acts,
the New York Assem-
bly was suspended until
it should agree to allow
British soldiers to be
quartered and fed at the
coIonIsLs` expense. AIso,
new taxes were imposed
throughout the American
colonies, that were already stag-
gering under a depressed econ-
omy. Glass, lead, paint, paper,
and tea, all common items of
evervduv use, were now sIupped
with taxes, and British customs
oIhcers were gIven expunded
powers to make sure that the
new rules were followed. Now,
cusLoms oIhcIuIs couId muke ouL
LIeIr own ¨wrILs oI ussIsLunce¨,
which allowed them broad au-
LIorILv Lo seurcI prIvuLe Iomes
and warehouses for contraband
goods, and to use force to do so
if necessary. In addition, three
new Admiralty Courts – courts
without juries – were estab-
lished in the Colonies by the
Townshend Acts.
It was before one of these
courts that John Hancock had
been forced to appear to face
cIurges oI evudIng LIe TownsI-
end Acts after his ship was im-
pounded. Sam Adams arranged
for his cousin, John Adams, to
defend him, and the Admiralty
Court had acquitted Hancock in
the face of public fury.
Sam Adams had not sat idly
by as the Townshend Acts were
put into effect. Working with
the Massachusetts assembly,
called the Massachusetts Gen-
eral Court, he sent appeals and
pleadings to Parliament against
the Townshend Acts. He re-
ceIved no response, und so, h-
nally, he wrote a letter of protest
LIuL expIuIned LIe AmerIcuns`
grIevunces more cIeurIv LIun unv
before had dared. He argued in
IIs Iumous ¨CIrcuIur ¡eLLer¨ LIuL
¨HIs MujesLv`s AmerIcun Sub-
jects, who acknowledge them-
seIves bound bv LIe TIes oI AIIe-
gIunce, Iuve un equILubIe CIuIm
to the full enjoyment of the fun-
damental Rules of the British
Constitution: That it is in an es-
sential unalterable Right, in na-
ture, ungrafted into the British
Constitution, as a fundamental
¡uw, & ever IeId sucred & Irre-
vocubIe bv LIe SubjecLs wILIIn
the Realm, that what a man has
honestly acquired is absolutely
his own, which he may freely
gIve, buL cunnoL be Luken Irom
him without his consent.”
His letter went on to a theme
that would become a rallying
cry of American Independence:
¨ImposIng DuLIes on LIe PeopIe
oI LIIs provInce, wILI LIe soIe
& express purpose of raising a
Revenue, ure ¡nIrIngemenLs oI
their natural & constitutional
Rights: because, as they are
not represented in the British
PurIIumenL, IIs MujesLv`s Com-
mons in Britain by those grant
their Property without their
consent....”. The letter further
explained that the American
colonies could not be well -rep-
resented in Parliament, due to
the geographical distances sep-
uruLIng LIem: ¨TIIs House Iur-
ther are of Opinion, that their
Constituents, considering their
local Circumstances cannot by
any possibility, be represented
in the Parliament, & that it will
Iorever be ImprucLIcubIe, LIuL
they should be equally repre-
sented there, & consequently
not at all; being separated by an
Ocean of a thousand leagues:
und LIuL IIs MujesLv`s RovuI
Predecessors, for this reason,
were graciously pleased to form
a subordinate legislature here,
that their subjects might en-
joy the unalienable Right of a
RepresenLuLIon.¨. TIe IeLLer
was sponsored by the Massa-
chusetts General Court, and
was circulated around the colo-
nies. It was endorsed by other
colonial Assemblies, including
the powerful Virginia House of
However, LIe IeLLer wus noL
weII receIved bv PurIIumenL
or by the King. In fact, King
George wus so provoked LIuL
he ordered Lord Hillsborough,
Secretary of State for the colo-
nies, to order the Massachu-
setts General Court to rescind
the letter. If they did not, their
assembly would be shut down.
The General Court refused to
back down- and so, on that Fri-
day morning, July 1, 1768, Mas-
sucIuseLLs Governor SIr ¡runcIs
Bernurd Iud dIssoIved LIe Mus-
sachusetts General Court.
And now, LIuL verv evenIng,
Sam Adams was writing again.
This time he was not working
on another letter of protest, but
instead on a form of protest that
Ie IeIL mIgIL be more eIIecLIve:
a boycott of the British goods
taxed by the Townshend Acts.
If he could get legislatures, mer-
chants, and citizens to refuse
to buy those goods, perhaps
the British Parliament could be
brought to their senses. Perhaps
they would realize the Ameri-
can colonies were earnest in
their pleas for fair representa-
tion, and the rights that should
be uccorded Lo EngIIsImen ev-
Dusk was falling and Adams
wus sLIII benL over LIe puper In
IronL oI IIm, now covered wILI
writing. He paused to dip his
quill pen in the inkwell and
squinted at the page. He could
barely read it in the falling light.
He pulled the candle closer and
bent to his work once more.
But suddenly Adams raised his
head and listened. Outside he
heard a shrill piercing whistle,
the sound of running feet and
u crusI. ¨Tuke LIuL buck Lo
vour Governor!¨ u rougI voIce
sIouLed. ¨And Lo ¡ord Town-
sIend!¨ ¨Sons oI ¡IberLv, ouL
LonIgIL! Tuke LIuL, vou oIhcIuI
jackanapes!” Now someone was
cheering. There was another yell
and other crash. The pattering
feet whirled by the window, and
then they were gone. A curious
smIIe pIuved over Adums`s Iuce
as listened. The Sons
of Liberty had made
cusLom oIhcIuIs LIeIr
particular target after
the Townshend Acts.
Perhaps one of them
had been a little too
bold – or foolish. Ad-
ams shook his head,
and the faint smile
faded as he re-read
his last sentence and
his brow furrowed
with concentration.
Soon the room was
once uguIn hIIed wILI
the sound of his pen
scratching across the
. . . . . .
The British re-

in Boston did not stop with the

Oath Keepers is proud
to announce that Sheriff
Richard Mack is now a
member oI OuLI Keepers`
national Board of Directors.
Sheriff Mack was welcomed
to the position on July 03,
2010. Sheriff Mack has been
an Oath keeping patriot for
many years, long before
Stewart Rhodes founded
Oath Keepers. Sheriff Mack
recognized the importance
of the Oath Keepers mission
as soon as he heard it.
Sheriff Richard Mack is
creating quite a stir around
the nation. Two appearances
on Judge Andrew
NupoIILuno`s sIow und u
busy schedule of interstate
speaking engagements are
part of his attack upon
unconstitutional federal
ucLIvILv. He Ius un enIunced
multi-media presentation
wIIcI Is verv popuIur
with audiences around the
nation. His message is also
verv powerIuI, und IL dove-
tails with the states-rights
movemenL under LIe ¤LI
and 10th Amendments. His
message also interfaces
nicely with that of Oath
Keepers. He notes that if
all sheriffs would simply
honor their Oath to the
Constitution, we could
regain our Republic
That message, chronicled
across America by Sheriff
Mack for years, has been
taken up in Montana by three
conscientious candidates
for the office of County
Sheriff. Oath Keepers is
proud to see three of our
members running for that
office, for as Oath Keepers
we know LIev ¨geL IL¨ und
will become Constitutional
WILI Nevudu`s SIerIII De
Meo und ArIzonu`s SIerIII
Arpaio already making
stands against Federal
encroachment in their
respecLIve counLIes, LIese
candidates are willing
to walk the walk in their
own counties if elected in
Montana. Each of them
sees a duty to protect the
citizens of his county from
unIuwIuI IederuI ucLIvILv.
Oath Keepers is strongly
in agreement with Sheriff
Mack and all sheriffs who
understand and embrace
his message – the County
Sheriff is the highest law
enforcement officer in his
county, with authority
over unv InLrudIng ¡ederuI
agent. Guardians of the
Republic, Constitutionally
minded sheriffs can hold
the line against home-
grown governmenLuI
tyranny. Let freedom ring!

For anyone who has watched
LIe Iumous 1¤6z hIm, ¨TIe
Longest Day”, the following scene
is probably familiar. Members
of the French Underground are
going through a Nazi checkpoint
with a horse-drawn cart full of
hay. The German soldiers stop
the cart at the checkpoint. The
soldiers then take a pitchfork
and stab the hay in the cart
numerous times in an effort
Lo hnd unv IIdden ILems LIuL
the underground members
may be trying to sneak past the
ProvIng LIe LruLI In ¨.LIere

a somewhat similar scenario is
beIng pIuved ouL Loduv. OnIv IL`s
in New York instead of France,
the soldiers are American, not
German, and instead of the
¡rencI Underground, LIe vIcLIms
are the American people. And,
instead of pitchforks there are
IIgI LecI ¨wunds¨.
The New York National Guard,
In un uppurenL vIoIuLIon oI Posse
Comitatus, is teaming up with
local law enforcement to use
high tech gamma ray scanning
equipment to search cars at
cIeckpoInLs. A vIdeo sIoL bv ¡ox
News 23 in New York, shows a
checkpoint with a sign saying,
¨sIow - under veIIcIe InspecLIon¨
as a car pulls up to the inspection
The Fox report states that a
warrant is required by the police,
but in one instance in 2009, the
¨wurrunL¨ consIsLed oI un oIhcer
saying he smelled marijuana:
¨TIe ScIenecLudv PoIIce

that has called in the guard

Iound, buL LIuL LruIhc sLop und

The technology is not only used
for drugs, but also for weapons.
Again, from the Fox News
¨SSG. BrIun GIIIIs suvs, 'we cun

The Guard has been busy.
According to the same Fox News
reporL: ¨TIe New York NuLIonuI
Guard assisted in more than
2,000 arrests last year, and had
almost $150 million in drug,
property, and weapon seizures.”
In addition to searching
veIIcIes, LIe NuLIonuI Guurd Is
LukIng Lo LIe uIr In LIe ¨wur on

¨TIe New York NuLIonuI
Guurd Is hgILIng LIe wur on

Paul, a helicopter pilot with the
guard says police ask for help,
and because of their experience,
help them to locate them, go
in collect the drugs, and make
arrests. During the day, pilots
and police take to the air looking
for marijuana. At night, an
infrared camera helps to net
arrests and drug seizures.
PuuI suvs, 'unvLIIng generuLIng

temperature sticks out, lights up

Those seizures and cash
helping to fund the Counterdrug
task force programs.”
The original Posse Comitatus
Act has been completely restored
Lo IL`s orIgInuI sLuLe bv HR q¤86
in 2008. This Act restricts the
deployment of troops within the
United States:
For troops to be deployed, a
condILIon Ius Lo exIsL LIuL, ¨(1)

United States within the State,

by clause (1), the State shall be
consIdered Lo Iuve denIed LIe
equal protection of the laws
secured by the Constitution.”
It would not seem that these
conditions exist.
Consider the following:
At a hearing on the Posse
ComILuLus AcL |PCA| beIore LIe
Subcommittee on Crime of the
Committee on the Judiciary in
1981, William H. Taft, general
counsel of the Department of
DeIense, LesLIhed:
¨TIe |PCA| expresses one oI
the clearest political traditions
in Anglo-American history:
that using the military power to

consumed resources needed for
national defense and drew the
Armed Forces into political and
legal quarrels that could only
harm their ability to defend
their country. Accordingly they
intended that the Armed Forces
be used in law enforcement
only in those serious cases to
which the ordinary processes of
cIvIIIun Iuw were IncupubIe oI
BuL even more ImporLunL
than the Posse Comitatus Act is
the Constitution of the United
States. As stated by Stewart
Rhodes, founder of Oath Keepers
and a Yale trained Constitutional
¨¡ook uL ArLIcIe ¡, SecLIon
8, and it will let you know
what institution is supposed
to be taking care of repelling
InvusIons, und suppressIng
insurrections, and enforcing
the laws of the Union-- it should
be the militia of the states, and
LIuL`s wIo sIouId be doIng IL, noL
the standing Army... I would say
that we should go back and look
at the Constitution itself.”
¡L`s InLeresLIng Lo noLe, LIuL
under United States Code Title 10
(12406), that the National Guard
has been federalized and placed
under the call of the President,
similar to the standing army:
¨. LIe PresIdenL muv cuII InLo
¡ederuI servIce members und
units of the National Guard of
any State in such numbers as he
consIders necessurv Lo. execuLe
LIose Iuws.¨
In addition to Title 10, the
¨CouncII oI Governors¨ wus
enucLed bv execuLIve order In
January, 2009. This Council
corresponds to the ten FEMA
regions, and further federalizes
the National Guard, making
them like a standing army. This
unconsLILuLIonuI execuLIve order
also allows foreign troops to be
deployed in American cities.
(See ¨TIe Noose TIgILens¨, TIe
Oath Keeper Vol, 1 No. 5.)
So, according to Stewart
Rhodes and the Constitution,
LIe mIIILIu sIouId be InvoIved In
enforcing the laws. And who is
It is stated in United States
Code (1o USC ¤11(u)) LIuL, ¨TIe
Militia of the United States
consists of all able-bodied males
uL IeusL 1; veurs oI uge...¨. ¡n US v.
Miller, the Supreme Court ruled
that when called into action the
mIIILIu wus Lo sIow up ¨beurIng

AIso, In BIuck`s ¡uw DIcLIonurv,
¨mIIILIu¨ Is dehned us: ¨TIe bodv

¨reguIur Lroops oI u sLundIng
Therefore, the militia is
different from the National
Guard and the US military. So,
the Guard is being usurped
bv LIe IederuI governmenL on
a national scale, and is being
used to enforce laws, which
constitutionally is the job of the
militia. Therefore, the domestic
deployment of the Guard in New

Whereas those of us who are
traditionalists, we are, if you
will, the counterculture.”
So states Patrick J.
Buchanan in the opening
scenes of James Jaeger’s
new hIm, CU¡TURA¡
MARX¡SM: TIe CorrupLIon
oI AmerIcu. As uIwuvs,
Buchanan is outspoken and
splendidly patriotic in his
testimony on the present
degeneration of our country.
Many of us born before
the 1960s and its shocking
nihilism agree vehemently
with him. We were raised
in a land far removed
philosophically from the
America we are cursed with
Loduv, und LIIs dIsLurbIng
fact weighs heavily upon our
hearts and minds.

and the reprehensible way
it so cavalierly saturates
its stories with over-the-
Lop vIoIence. We hnd
ourselves aghast at how
much boorish mediocrity
and phantasmagoric
ugliness pulsate through
the commercial byways of
modern America calling
itself “cutting-edge art from
the avant-garde.” And we
wonder what is it that has
wrought such decadence --
where once righteous ideals
and a heroic sense of life
¡s LIere u reuson, we
lament, wIv we musL
endure movies about
sniveling Ratso Rizzos
instead of dashing Rhett
Butlers and plucky Gunga
Dins? Why miasma and
moroseness now dominate
the social stream instead of
the spirit of magnanimity
and unbridled optimism of
our ancestors? Why sweet
drug poisons such as “crack“
and “Methamphetamine”
invade the lives of callow
youths in ghetto and country
club alike? Why middle
class Americans (who once
worshiped self-reliance) now
shamefully demand more and
more entitlement handouts
from government? Why our
elected leaders in Washington
have become despicable
quislings slithering around
in Machiavellian muck? Why
IumIIv IIIe und murrIuge, LIe

why this tragic disintegration
of American life’s value has
swept over the country this
past century. It is called
¨CuILuruI MurxIsm.¨ ¡L Is

Cultural Marxism’s
It all began in the
aftermath of World War I.
TIe orIgInuI LIeme oI KurI
Marx in the 19th century
was that capitalism had to be
destroyed. It was tyrannical
and exploitative in nature.
Under LIe guIdunce oI
MurxIsL revoIuLIonurIes,
the workers of the world
could eventually be made
to realize this and rise up in
revolt. A “collectivist” and
“classless” society would then
commence in which men
and women no longer strived

George ¡ukucs unnounced
to gullible minds everywhere:
“I see the revolution and
destruction of society as
the only solution. A world-

cannot take place without
annihilation of the old values
and a creation of new ones.”
Did all this “critical

the-curtain so to speak. It
was orchestrated from a
small but fervent coterie of

More OuLI Keepers IILeru-

More pictures were taken
and more mountain scen-
