Happy July 4th, my fellow Americans. It’s the Independence Day weekend!
Independence from what, you might ask? As even the somewhat revisionist history
taught in public schools readily admits, July 4th is a celebration of
independence from government tyranny under British rule.
kind of government tyranny, specifically? Well, the kind that involves
warrantless searches of peoples’ homes, where government agents could just waltz
right into your private home for no reason and conduct a search without even
getting a court-issued warrant. That was a form of government terrorism
waged against the people, and when the USA declared its independence from
British rule, it adopted a new rule at home that specifically forbade such
tyrannical government actions.
That rule is called The Fourth
Amendment. It protects citizens from illegal searches and seizures
undertaken by a tyrannical lawless government.
Yet, sadly, in just the
last decade, the U.S. government has now thrown out the Fourth Amendment and is
back to operating exactly like the British tyrants we defeated to earn our
independence in the first place! Now in the United States, TSA agents at the
airport conduct illegal searches of travelers on a routine basis, with no
search warrants issued, no just cause and no legal justification whatsoever. The
TSA has become to modern-day America what the British tyrants were to the
colonials in the 18th century.
But it gets even better. Today, police in
Indiana now have the court-affirmed “right” to conduct warrantless
house-to-house searches without any just cause whatsoever. The state supreme
court there has ruled that police no longer need warrants to break into
private homes and search them for anything they want, at any hour, for any
courts are also ruling that you cannot resist an unlawful entry into your
home by a police officer — even if that police officer is committing a
crime by breaking into your home! (http://www.naturalnews.com/032435_F…)
brutality is now so widespread and common across the U.S. that police are
beating, arresting, tasering and charging speech-impaired teenagers with
resisting arrest! (http://www.prisonplanet.com/police-…)
Some police, it
turns out, are so uneducated that they interpret a speech impediment as
some kind of mockery or “disrespect.”
Not all cops are bad, of course.
Most cops are hard-working citizens who perform a thankless job for wildly
insufficient pay. They put their lives on the line to help keep our local
communities safe, and they deserve our thanks for that effort. But increasingly,
the bad cops seem to be losing their cool and forgetting they are
supposed to serve the public, not terrorize the public like some sort of
badge-wearing gang of government thugs.
Tenth Amendment protections
rules were written into the new U.S. Constitution to make sure the People could
never again be abused by government tyrants. The Tenth Amendment provided for
states’ rights, limiting the role of the federal government in controlling local
But the federal government now says it has supreme power
over all states, and it forces itself onto the states through things like
airport screening programs (TSA) and the nationwide prohibition of marijuana,
involving federal DEA agents raiding medical marijuana facilities that have been
legally licensed by the state. The federal government, in other words, respects
no state law whatsoever.
Efforts are under way to reassert states’ rights
and nullify the tyrannical control of the federal government. See www.NullifyNow.com and learn
about The Tenth Amendment Center and its work to protect the freedom of
citizens in every state.
Obamacare and economic tyranny
engaged in economic tyranny by forcing citizens to purchase a health
insurance policy from a failed “sick care” system that doesn’t even work! It’s
called “Obamacare,” and the courts are ruling that the federal government now
has this power to mandate that all Americans buy whatever private product the
government orders them to buy!
Take this one step further, and soon
you’ll see the government ordering all Americans to buy an American-made car, or
buy a government-mandated life insurance policy, or buy a new house to lift the
housing market. Under this bizarre interpretation of the Commerce Clause
there is absolutely nothing the government can’t control in your life as long as
it can argue there is some economic impact on others. The government can even
force you to stop growing corn on your own farm, even if you don’t sell
it to anyone! (http://www.naturalnews.com/030799_f…)
refuse to buy what the government orders them to buy will be economically
punished or even imprisoned in “debtors prisons.” This is the new America, where
the government can now order you how to spend the every-shrinking portion of
your income that they didn’t already confiscate in taxes.
Free Speech is routinely censored in America
Amendment untouched, America’s current tyrannical government also strongly
censors free speech. Remember all the people who were arrested for slow-dancing
at the Jefferson Memorial? (http://www.naturalnews.com/032569_A…)
Or how about
the U.S. government’s arrest and imprisonment of nutritional supplement
manufacturers who tell the truth about the health benefits of their products
on their own websites? (http://www.naturalnews.com/029901_p…)
On top of that,
we now have “free speech zones” where you’re limited to protesting off-camera
and out of the way of any important event. Plus, the federal government is
actively raiding and taking down websites that merely link to other
websites where you can download movies or pay-per-view events. This is being
done without any warrant, any trial, or any due process whatsoever.
Speech is under assault, and it doesn’t matter whether your speech is on the
left, the right or the middle — if it questions the government’s illegal
actions or policies in any way, you will be targeted for censorship.

he says his actions don’t even need to be legal under the Constitution at
“There may be a time in which there was a serious question as to
whether the War Powers Resolution was constitutional,” Obama said in a recent
press conference. “I don’t have to get to the question.” (http://cnsnews.com/news/article/oba…)
In other words,
Obama thinks he’s the king, just like the King of England who we fought a
revolution against in the 18th century. Obama thinks he does not need to
follow ANY law, thereby violating the very tenant of our Republic, which is
a nation based on laws that apply to everyone, including those who
When the sitting President of the USA declares that his actions
don’t even need to be reviewed for their constitutionality, the republic is
lost. Doesn’t this guy even remember that he SWORE to uphold and defend the
Constitution during his initial swearing in as President?
The Patriot Act – George Bush’s gift to freedom
in America must, of course, include a reference to the Patriot Act, signed into
law by President Bush in the aftermath of the false-flag 9/11 attack. The
Patriot Act is to freedom what napalm is to peace.
Patriot Act revokes all the rights enumerated by the Bill of Rights for any
person the government accuses of being involved in “terrorism” of any kind,
which can include protests by animal rights advocates or even just lighting
farts with your fraternity buddies while sitting on an airplane.
Patriot Act takes America back to the days of the King’s rule where only
the King is granted the right to rule (by God, no less) and yet he himself is
subject to no rule (no law). This is the situation in America today, where
government agents such as the FDA, DEA, TSA, FCC, FTC, EPA, USDA and many others
routinely engage in criminal acts against the People, against nature and
against common law. Yet they continue to get away with these crimes because they
answer to no law (and the People never hold them accountable).
What are you celebrating this July 4th?
Independence Day in America, you are celebrating the result of a violent
revolutionary war against a tyrannical government whose crimes against the
People have all been re-created right here at home, via the American
Where we once fought for independence, we now lay down and
surrender our freedoms. The masses of sheeple have forgotten what it means to
live free, and they have allowed a tyrannical government to treat them with the
same disdain that the British empire once dealt out as routine.
situation has become so perverse in America that the very act of being
“patriotic” is now considered a fringe idea, almost smacking of so-called
“home-grown terrorism.” In the same vein, some Big Government advocates are even
suggesting that celebrating Independence Day is, all by itself, some sort of
evil. The editor of one prominent progressive magazine (I’m not linking to it
because they don’t deserve the link credit) even said recently, “My heart does
not beat faster at the strains of the Star Spangled Banner, much less at the
sight of F-16s flying overhead to kick off the show. You see, I don’t believe in
patriotism. You can call me unpatriotic if you’d like, but really I’m
In one sense, this editor makes a valid point that
mindless patriotism as some sort of worship of a warped government agenda
(a la Hitler’s patriotism) is a destructive thing, indeed. But Independence Day
isn’t about mindless patriotism; it’s about recognizing the sacrifices our
forefathers (and mothers) made to deliver a free republic to us that we
might hold on to for more than just a couple of centuries. Sadly, what was once
a free republic has now become a Big Government police state. And the 4th of
July has, for nearly all Americans, become nothing more than an excuse to eat
cancer-causing hot dogs while watching pretty colors explode in the sky.

At the same time, the federal government is the criminal element
that’s arming Mexican drug gangs with tens of thousands of firearms that
are now being used in crimes back in the USA. This has now been openly admitted
by ATF agents who were ordered to do so by Washington officials, and NaturalNews
will be publishing a detailed account of this story soon.
The bottom line
in all this is that celebrating Independence Day used to actually mean
something, but today it is a shallow display of fireworks to a populace that
has forgotten what any of it means — a population that grovels at the feet of
its masters and welcomes yet more tyranny with each passing election. Who will
they vote for in the next election? Unless the candidate’s name ends with
“Paul,” it hardly matters, because nearly every politician in Washington
today is a traitor to the founding principles of America — and a traitor to

We are living through the final days of the Roman
Empire, just as it began to collapse. History will wonder how so many of us
could have been so blind to what was happening right in front of us. The answer,
of course, is that the people were too blinded by the fireworks to stop and
think about what they are meant to symbolize.
And yes, in case you were
wondering, the feature picture for this article is a picture of me standing
behind an American flag that blocks my mouth. The symbolism here should be
obvious: That in today’s Big Government political environment, we’re all
supposed to believe that being “patriotic” means shutting our mouths and saying
Nonsense, I say. Patriotism goes hand in hand with speaking our
minds. Only a free nation is a nation worth fighting for.
