By Consent of the Governed

By Michael Oberndorf · Nov. 26, 2012

The outrage in Benghazi appears to center around another Obama administration gun-running operation, this time not to Mexican drug dealers, but to al-Qaeda “rebels” in Syria. It seems, despite administration and Fifth Column media denials, that the objective of the attack on the facilities in Benghazi was to capture arms stored there, being sold and transshipped by Turkish middlemen. The jihadists apparently decided that paying for the arms was silly, when security was non-existent. The storage facility was like an old woman with a purse, on a south Bronx street at midnight.

Thus, we have an ambassador, albeit a very suspect one, brutally raped and murdered along with three other Americans, and as with the government agents murdered during Fast and Furious, a president who clearly doesn't give a flying hoo-hah. He not only doesn't care, he has tried to cover up the administration's criminal activity and its aiding and abetting our enemies for cheap, self-serving political gain. Unfortunately for them, they are incredibly inept and incompetent at this sort of subtlety, and even with the full complicity of the Fifth Column media, the truth has come out.

The same rampant disregard for law and the Constitution was clearly evident, too, in the November 6 elections. There is absolutely no possible way that Obama could have won the election, especially with the margins claimed. All the rigged pre-election polls suggested Romney would win with at least comfortable margins, as would several conservative Senate and Congressional candidates, like Josh Mandel in Ohio, and Allen West in Florida. Instead, we find that in unbelievable numbers of precincts, not one person voted for Romney – zero, zip, nada. Just like in Venezuela, or the old USSR, eh? In numerous districts, more votes were cast than there were voting age people, and voting machines appeared rigged to only cast votes for Obama. Many people reported arriving at the polls only to be told that they had already voted. Busloads of people showed up who couldn't remember their supposed addresses without referring to copies of their alleged electric bill that they used for ID. Interestingly, Obama did not win a single state where a photo ID was a requirement to vote.

So, we are faced with a government illegally engaged in supplying weapons to our Islamist enemies and international drug dealers, and holding on to power through massive and blatant election fraud. We also have a news media up to its eyebrows in covering all this up. But worst of all, we have the supposed opposition party, the allegedly conservative Republicans, cowering in the shadows, uttering not a word of protest.

Where, I will ask for the umpteenth time since the Usurper was “elected” in 2008, are the demands for impeachment? Where are the demands for special prosecutors to investigate the obvious and myriad crimes committed by Obama and the members of his administration? Where are the investigative “journalists” digging out the ugly facts so the prosecutors can indict and incarcerate? This, clearly, is a rhetorical question, since we all know the answer.

By the way, when someone goes to work for the federal government, whether in the military, the Secret Service, the Department of Agriculture, or whatever, they take an oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. There is nothing in the oath that says that it only applies some of the time, or under certain conditions. Nor is there anything that states, or even implies, that the oath no longer applies if you leave government service (Yes, ALL government employees, hired or elected, are public servants!). Thus, it seems that anyone who ever took the oath has seriously violated it if they voted for Barack Hussein Obama, and is violating it if they do nothing right these wrongs.

We, the People, lost control of our government years ago, but the consequences have never been as undeniably conspicuous as they are today. We are on the verge of being taxed out of existence as a free, capitalist nation. The Constitution has been allowed to become just a “damn piece of paper” and our rights something determined by government, not God. Our military is being gutted. Our religious heritage is being crushed and our freedom to express our religious beliefs is being destroyed. The police are being turned into paramilitary forces, with unlimited surveillance powers, and groups reminiscent of the Brown Shirts of Nazi Germany are being given the same power as the police. All this and more, without a peep of protest from those we thought were our representatives in what used to be our government.

I, for one, do not recognize the new government as legitimate, and hereby withdraw my consent to be governed by it. The Secession Movement is the best thing to happen in this country since 1913. I fully support it. What about you?


Ted R. Weiland in Nebraska said:

Michael, I support it, provided it doesn't provide more of the same. Ultimately, secession will not accomplish anything UNLESS such an effort is established upon Yahweh's immutable morality as codified in His perfect law (Psalm 19:7-11). Otherwise, we just end up where we find ourselves today or worse.

George Rogers Clark in Ohio said:

Michael, I believe most of what you say about the miserable condition of America, but I also agree with my friend, Ted Weiland, in regards to secession. If a corrupt people, who continue to elect corrupt leaders, start a new country, how will it be better? We need a spiritual/moral revival, Michael. And should the Lord bless our prayers and efforts and bring revival, with a new Christian majority we need to put God's law first, as Ted says. All things are possible; we should never give up.

Hi George! Good to see you "back in the saddle" again. I hope you and yours are all well. Blessings!

I continue to see people under the delusion that by continuing cling to the constitution, it's god "We The People" is going to change things and save this nation. Secession would be good, but not if we cling to and keep the constitution.

Not only is it in violation of His Law, the constitution has been dead for years. Don't think so ? Tell me about all the things you're "free" to do without getting permits, licenses, etc. ???? Oh, and by the way, how's that constitutionally correct 'Obamanation wasn't born here" challenge been working out so far ???

This lost Constitutional Republic's has become a Communist Republic.
Don't agree ? Have you ever read "The Communist Manifesto" and The Ten Planks contained therein ? Here's just a few examples, but they're all in full force and effect here in the good ol' U.S.S.A.:

1st. Plank: Property tax (Abolition of the right to property - land rent)
2nd.: Graduated Income tax.
3rd.: Inheritance tax. (Abolition of the right to inheritance)
5th.: Central Bank in control of credit & currency (Federal Reserve Bank)
10th. Free compulsory education (indoctrination via the public fool system)
Getting the picture comrade or do I need to list them all ? And now it's morphed into Corporate Fascism. Mussolini would be proud.

The truth of the matter is this: For the most part, this nation has turned it's back on and, in essence, "flipped the bird" to The Great I Am that became flesh and dwelt among us. And because this nation as a whole hates the truth, here's what's happened to it: Because they do not have a love of the truth, God has sent them a strong delusion, so that they will believe what is false in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in lawlessness. 2 Thessalonians 2: 10 - 12.

That admonition includes ALL truth, not just the ones we agree with. How much love of truth do "We The People" really have ?

The Almighty told us in His Word that His Laws, Statutes and Judgments are perfect and "Thou shalt not add or subtract therefrom." Yet, "We The People" continually "vote" for legislative and presidential offices to do just that, i.e., "add or subtract therefrom." The making of Law is a power that belongs to Him and Him alone!

The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth.
Seek Him while He may yet be found.
