No sacred cows, or a new global Bill of Rights

No sacred cows, or a new global Bill of Rights
Barry Bright March 21, 2016

In light of ‘current events‘ and despite the predominate human nature we need a global Bill of Rights, based upon the Bill of Rights sponsored by the anti-federalists in the post revolutionary years of the United States which was of course part of the evolution of government in this country and the world.

Of course it’s not ‘perfect’ and I’m not expecting to see it instituted in my time in this realm, but here we go anyway:

Self defense against tyranny from any government or human institution, or organization or common criminals or otherwise is the most basic natural born right any human being possesses and is the basis of this document. This document is an acknowledgment of that pre-existing natural-born right, not an allowance or a creation of it.

The right to free speech on a free press or on a free internet or on the airwaves or in any spectrum electromagnetic or other wise is sacrosanct and not to be brought into question. This means there are no ‘sacred cows’ nor any groups or ideologies whose motives cannot be brought into question.

The right to bear arms of whatever kind against government oppression/criminals or common criminals is not to be brought into question. In other words there’s no such thing as an ‘illegal weapon.’ This stems from the fact that self defense, the most basic right that any creature possesses, is the natural born right that this entire document is based upon.

All governments are to be secular and to have no say in individual religious choice insofar as that choice doesn’t infringe on the Liberty of others. As humanity evolves so does its need for more freedom, liberty, concepts that of course have evolved over time. Any and all governments that refuse to recognize this reality and continue to oppress, enslave, control, populations in the name of whatever ideologies shall be and must be opposed and ended.

No worker shall have money, currency, credits, wages of whatever form of modern or new definition stolen from their paychecks before they even reach their hands by any government on any level.

Taxes shall be ‘value added’ or a sales tax only, not to exceed one percent of the value of the item or goods being purchased. All governments shall be held to a budget that puts the needs of the common people first which means roadways and affordable fuel are more important than bombers or ICBMs.

Property rights of individuals are to be sacrosanct. The most important ‘private property’ anyone owns is their own life, health, safety, and no one, anywhere, anytime has the ‘right’ to take that from them or deny them their most basic right, that of self defense. Eminent domain shall only be applied when true and dire public interest is at stake. Any who are proven in a court of law to profit from such takings shall be executed.

Cases to be tried by juries shall consist of a jury of peers from the local area. Judges shall never advise the juries that they must abide by ‘the law’ as it is written as sometimes laws are wrong and simply evil. Judges shall advise juries of their right to nullify any and all law except that which protects the natural born most basic rights of all described above.

Prosecutors and police that are proven to have railroaded any innocent person into prison for political or monetary or any other gain at any point in their careers are to be executed.

All cruel and unusual punishment is banned as the primary job of prisons is to keep violent humans who have been convicted of committing crimes against persons or their property off the street. Only elected, appointed or hired government employees that have broken their oaths to uphold the natural rights of human beings and the Liberty of all shall face execution except for murderers that have been proven beyond all doubt, not on circumstantial evidence, to be guilty.

Judges may not have exclusive power to decide what is evidence and any defendant may demand that all pertinent evidence be seen or heard or examined by a jury via an outside body not subservient to the courts.

Appeals processes in criminal cases are not to exceed two years and are to be immediately turned over to outside agencies not affiliated with those that brought the prosecution.

No government shall spy on its citizens or seek to examine their personal papers, memories, minds, records whether held by them or others nor require backdoor decryption nor surveil their activities in any form by any means without a warrant generated by a court of law nor may any home or private or company  office, facility or vehicle be searched without a warrant or probable cause.

Warrants shall only be issued upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Crimes of possession are hereby banned. Excessive bail or fines for minor cases or non-violent crimes is banned. Forfeiture of property of those accused of crimes by law enforcement agencies or any other bodies is forbidden.

(And let’s just borrow directly from the U.S. Bill of Rights because I’m not sure the next two paragraphs could be worded any better.):

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Voting shall be considered as a privilege to be earned not a right. All who wish to vote must prove citizenship in the country, state, district, precinct, however defined locally and must prove they are literate in the local language of that area and take a test to prove they understand the theory of limited government and individual liberty and the right to fight back that is possessed by all.

This is necessary because of the human trait that often prefers slavery of whatever form to Liberty, a trait which often has no problem killing, torturing, abusing, slandering any who oppose their efforts to enslave the rest of humanity in their dogmas, rituals, religions, collectivist/statist governments including those not herein mentioned or defined.

All candidates for public service on any level must publicly provide on the internet or whatever technology replaces it a resume to include their past voting records, their affiliations, memberships, names of each and every donor/PACS/or other cute name for influence where the donation exceeded the amount a common citizen might be expected to provide.

Debates on the presidential level for any nation must take place within a week of the primary, caucus or election that is held on the same day nationwide, be available for broadcast on all available outlets, be preceded by the presentation of the candidates’ resumes to the people and of donor lists. Moderators may not be members of the ‘mainstream news media’ and a panel of interviewers must consist of real activists that have proven they have a true in-depth understanding of ‘the issues’ and limited government and its reason for existence: the maintenance of human Liberty. In other words, there’s no such thing as a right to work openly or surreptitiously to erode or destroy the rights of others.

Whenever candidates/government employees(elected, hired or appointed public servants) are elected, hired or appointed they must take an oath to uphold and defend this Bill of Rights. Those with records of not doing so are to be immediately tried for treason against human Liberty and executed before their evil is allowed to filter into any government.

Pure or impure forms of democracy, socialism, communism, and other forms of authoritarianism are banned. Dictatorships and monarchies by whatever name or description are banned.

All governments exist for the Liberty/benefit of the common people and shall be organized by a ‘separation of powers’ to include two houses of a congress, an executive with strictly defined and limited powers and a judicial branch, but with personal responsibility enforced upon each member for the defense of human Liberty. All failures to uphold their oaths to such shall be responded to with a speedy treason trial and execution via the granite gallows to be erected in front of every government building.

A special agency shall exist for the investigation of government corruption and no other law enforcement purpose shall be assigned to it so it cannot be turned on the people. This agency shall be under the purview of the local militia force that shall use the granite gallows to deal with cases of bribery or corruption within the force or agency itself.

No more wars for profit. Those waging such wars will be tried by a local or national or international criminal court, whichever catches them first, to be followed by their execution.

All young people(adults of legal age) before their 25th year shall be conscripted into basic military service for at least six months of active duty and two years of reserve training because so many would choose to not even be able to defend themselves much less the Liberty of their neighbors. All able bodied members of society who value human Liberty and show consistent support for this Bill of Rights are considered to be in the militia for the duration of their lives.

The military arts and physical fitness and health maintenance shall be taught in the schools along with the basics that produce literacy in language and mathematics and the arts because sadly it is often human nature to choose lifelong ignorance on these issues which can lead to the enslavement of those around them.

The Oath of fealty to human Liberty to be taken by all elected, hired or appointed public servants:

“I recognize the right of those who have elected, hired or appointed me to kill me if I degrade or attack or infringe their most basic right, that of self defense against me, or any other entity or institution, in any way or form. I shall never allow anyone to call me an ‘official’ for fear that would cause them to think I hold real power over them, rather my primary task is to ensure good government that sadly is sometimes necessary for the benefit of Human Liberty, property rights and the free society it fosters.

“If serving in law enforcement or the military I shall never enforce laws that impinge, attack, abridge the most basic right of the people, the right to fight back against and kill if necessary those who would enslave them or enslave them further. As a hired public servant my first responsibility is to this Bill of Rights which means arresting any who seek to attack, impinge or abridge any of its contents.

“I take this Oath and promise to uphold/enforce it upon myself and my fellow public servants upon pain of death.”

Obviously I tried to update according to current concerns and allow for a few future ones. My own definition of the Second Amendment can be found here.

How to enforce this? Until we develop true interstellar flight or make the military’s black budget space force public we use Australia as a global penal colony. All those that wish to exist under or rule an authoritarian system are flown there by a B-52 and kicked out at 20,000 feet with a poorly packed parachute. If the tiny number of Australians that value human Liberty don’t want to move we can always fall back on Antarctica.

Here’s an earlier version of this.

Of course with the human propensity to force ideologies on others in this dimension or others we can have this:

The patriot newbie guidebook
Barry Bright March 3, 2016

Over the years I have witnessed the eb and flow of involvement in what I call the patriot movement that loosely encompasses the ‘right wing’ or rather what some call conservatism, libertarianism, ‘Christian’ conservatism, the ‘tea party’ and the militia movement and on and on.

So I’m constructing this list in what is probably for now a false hope that more of our soldiers and citizen lobbyists and activists can more clearly understand the situation we face and not be discouraged every time some battle in this larger war is lost.

And you need to take your time, follow the links, and digest this if you are sincere about fighting for your country, for the real war is here:

1. We are at war.

Stop and think about that for a moment, in all its implications. The “Liberal’(commie) trash and their globalist masters will stop at nothing to succeed in their goals to enslave us all. There will never come a time when they simply throw up their hands and say “Oh sorry we bothered you, we’re going home now to live in peace and liberty with our neighbors.”

2. In war mistakes will be made.

There is no ‘god’s army’ coming to save you. The men in the white hats aren’t going to ride over the hill at any moment. Study a little history and learn that soldiers are usually average human beings, not just ‘sheepdogs,’ who make mistakes. When mistakes are made we don’t just leave our packs and our rifles on the battlefield and go home.

3. It’s all propaganda.

The word ‘propaganda’ isn’t always what most sheeple think. As I often tell people it’s ‘all’ propaganda, from the ancient tribal propaganda that is used to help keep the slaves working to Faux News to the commie news network to your favorite YouTube star or that fakebook page we waste so much time on.

4. It’s all ‘political.’

Politics is human nature is war by other means and vice versa. We will never take the politics out of politics but what we can do is pass some constitutional amendments to do what needs to be done and forbid our greatest enemies, our domestic blood enemies who have white skin and aren’t hiding in a cave on the other side of the world from turning future generations into willing slaves, as so many already are.

5. Voting does no, some, maybe a little good?

On the presidential level voting has proven to be a waste of time. The elites have consistently succeeded in putting their two approved candidates before the ‘mush heads in the middle’ and they predictably vote for the lesser of two evils who they hope will wave its magic wand and solve all their problems for them so they can go back to beer and chips or the golf course or whatever their thing is. So they once again allow a tool of the globalists to be installed in the now red house. This is because most sheeple put little to no effort into studying the ‘issues’ much less our history and the form of government we’re supposed to have here.

Congressional, state and local offices are another matter. There are times when voting and legislative action can do much good in the effort to restore the Bill of Rights and enlarge human Liberty. If you have the patience and knowledge you should get as involved as you can stand to be in lobbying your state legislature and your local elected public servants.

What can I do?

6. It’s not name calling if it’s true.

They’re communists. They started calling themselves ‘liberal’ and ‘progressive’ and several other cute names to hide their evil from the willfully ignorant. They are trash, garbage, human scat and there is no lie they won’t tell in the effort to enslave us all. They deserve no more respect than one would give a rattlesnake in a sleeping bag.

They have proven there is no name they won’t call us in their efforts to smear those who simply want to live free in the way our human and imperfect Founders who could see a brighter future intended.

I will never forget what it meant to me to be called a Nazi, or a racist or ‘right winger’ or extremist simply because I was saying we’re supposed to be free here. Their arrogance is unforgettable and unforgivable.

7. Don’t ‘compromise’ with them.

‘Compromising’ with our domestic blood enemies has been the problem. As someone once said, “When you compromise on something you already have you lose.” When the “Liberal”(commie) trash, republicrats(rinos), neocons, globalists, corporate workaholic jerks or whatever ask us to compromise on our natural born rights that the Bill of Rights was written to force the government to acknowledge they are demanding with their false civility and false pacifism that we surrender what our ancestors fought and worked so hard to acquire at the price of their sweat and blood.

We draw our food and water from the blood-stained ground they conquered. Let’s not dishonor them by giving our domestic blood enemies the time of day.

This is the proper answer: “Here’s our ‘compromise,’ you clearly don’t belong in America. You are communists/globalists. If you agree to leave we won’t kill you in sufficient numbers to restore Liberty here. And that means you need to get off the entire continent. We cannot afford to have commie governments on our borders.”

8. Historically we have a ‘Christian country’ and a secular government.

And the governments must remain secular. We wouldn’t accept a fundie Muslim government with Sharia law so why would we accept any other ancient human contrivance that was so obviously created to help keep the slaves working by promising them ‘paradise in the next life’ as long as they obey their Earthly masters while in this one? Those who argue otherwise are ignorant or simply lying. Allowing any version, sub-version, or subversion of whatever ‘religion’ to set the rules is and always has been just as dangerous as any other authoritarian system. We must stop choosing one version of authoritarianism over another.

9. Human history is change and transition.

Simple fact. That ‘old time religion’ is not what it was 200 years ago, and on and on. What was the ‘reformation’ and ‘the enlightenment?’ Our government was based on several examples from human history, mostly western civilization of course. But we don’t turn ‘Christians’ into torches any more and we don’t drown witches and we recognize we don’t owe ‘allegiance’ to our self-appointed masters. Rather it is they who serve us and ask us permission for what they do that benefits us or it isn’t done.

10. The Bill of Rights is what we’re fighting for.

The Bill of Rights, which some of the Founders, known as the ‘anti-Federalists’ insisted upon adding to the U.S. Constitution, is what makes us exceptional. It’s the most valuable, important, precious document ever penned by the hand of man, bar none.

After millennia of the rule of ‘god appointed’ kings the human species began to evolve to see that this is not a wise thing for it keeps everyone under the thumb of greedy, voracious arrogant actors that looked down their noses at their subjects and slaves and said “Obey me or I’ll kill and or torture you as is my right because I’m your god, am part god, descended from the gods, or was appointed by god.” In short, we don’t have a Caesar here to pay tribute to.

The Bill of Rights is based on the most basic right any creature possesses, the right to fight back, or the right of self defense. In particular it’s about the right to self defense against tyranny in government and our natural born right to kill those who would enslave us or in our case enslave us further.

11. “But this is America, we’re already free.”

I won’t honor that with a response other than to recommend you begin the process of sincerely waking up because you’re still a coward or a whore to the system or a child that probably needs to grow up first.

In that regard –

The patriot movement won’t grow up until it learns to do three things:

Stop worrying about what our domestic blood enemies, our greatest enemies that have white skin and aren’t hiding in a cave on the other side of the world, including the mainstream newswhores, say about us. The last one of them to stretch a rope after the war crimes trials will still be lying as its last filthy breath spews out of its upper sewer.

Stop kowtowing to their “Liberal”(commie) trash ‘friends’ who vote to kill them every time they vote.

Stop being cowards and start openly declaring what will be required to fix this mess if it can be fixed: an extensive and thorough “Liberal”(commie) trash season whereby we eradicate enough of our natural born statist/authoritarian vermin to restore Liberty and the Bill of Rights

There’s no such thing as casual ‘friends’

A short glossary:

people – Those who have taken the first step in accepting the personal responsibility of knowledge and the wisdom that may come from it if they spend enough time and effort to overcome a lifetime of indoctrination.

sheeple – The average dumbass, or ‘mush head in the middle’ as a famous radio personality calls them, that would rather die than think but will turn out to vote on occasion and make their decisions based on sound bites, spin, big hair or genitalia or skin color or stuff they want to hear because it makes them feel safer. Note that it’s very easy for many people to fall back into this cycle as the current quest for the idiot vote is proving, just as the last two did.

human being – Read Dune. It’s a great examination of religion, politics, human nature, etc. In short a human being is a highly evolved animal that doesn’t just fight back for food or territory or pride but for higher principle and values that most will never understand.

sheep dog – The false concept that only a tiny portion of our population has or should try to develop the ability, potential to fight back. It can lead to the false idea that our protectors are something other than our servants.

patriot – You don’t fight for a flag or a country or a document nor give allegiance to it but to the principles and values it allegedly was created to represent, principles encompassed in human Liberty which is what allows human civilization to advance however slowly.

war – Something our modern pacified society has taught us to hate while promoting it all over the globe for false purposes. We need to bring our troops home and have them fight here for Liberty not ‘democracy’ as they should’ve been doing in the 50s and 60s because McCarthy was right.

politics – Human nature – all the little things modern homo sapiens sapiens do to one another in the name of survival.

liberty – That stirring in the human heart that most work so hard to suppress either in themselves or others that tells them ‘we can do better.’

liberal – see ‘classical liberal.’ A word that was stolen by the communists after what ‘Ol’ Joe’ as FDR called him was doing in the Soviet Union finally became common knowledge over here because our infiltrated and controlled newspapers weren’t reporting it.

progressive – Another stolen word or key term used to control us and dupe the simple-minded who are usually only going to vote for a check or a job or some other benefit.

conservative – An ‘ideologue’ maybe, that often falls victim to ancient falsehoods or maybe just foolishly thinks things will ‘stay the way they always were.’ History is transition, and human civilization has been formed by various often dead or radically transformed ideologies that clawed at one another and drew blood and fertilized the soil of the human mind which again gives birth to an idea that is at first spurned then grudgingly accepted then turned into nostalgia to be cast aside for the next ‘new thing’ that isn’t always good or better.

religious – The pretentiousness that can stem from long study or natural born ignorance that tells someone they know what’s best for everyone else and they can use a wrathful god or government guns to enforce it without soiling their conscience in the least bit.

socialism – Sugar on the bait of a trap designed to imprison the human mind.

democracy – I think Mencken said it very well, as have others. It’s a false paradigm that tells us the majority always knows best when the majority very often knows very little at all and the elites have always known this which is why they do what they do and use it as their latest tool to keep us all pacified and stupid.

republic – The communist Chinese have a republic as have many others. It’s really just a word like any other and has only the meaning we are willing to enforce upon it.

So why bother? We preserve human Liberty for that tiny minority in every generation who will use it to advance human civilization. The sheeple will always graze on as long as they have steak and ice cream and a big screen or a promise of ‘paradise in the next life.’

I don’t expect the above to be popular because I always seek to tell the complete truth as near as I can ascertain it without worrying about sacred cows or simple-minded propriety. It’s way past time to wake up and grow up folks.

Choosing sides

No sacred cows, or a new global Bill of Rights

War is not always voluntary

War is not always voluntary
Barry Bright
Feb. 9, 2016

Again this is basically a response to a YouTube star. And again I just can’t let it go.

Watch the vid first. And don’t miss the comments.

Lot’s of ignorant 19-year-olds die in wars because they are able to fight. If you don’t believe me try to carry a 50 pound pack and 200 rounds of ammo and a 10 lb weapon while doing double time after you turn 50.

During amerika’s not-so-civil war both governments, and the Confederacy was an official ‘legitimate’ government, had to resort to conscription. Whether either side was ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in doing so I won’t get into it here if for no other reason than most wars are usually both ‘just’ and ‘unjust’ for various reasons. Search the ‘New York draft riots.’

If several state governments finally grew a backbone, which many claim will be necessary to restore Liberty here, and decided to defy some edict of our beast system or of one of our elected tools in the now red house or a ruling by a commie SCOTUS you can bet there’d be conscription again, on both sides.

I didn’t come from a ‘military family’ except for my father who ‘served’ in the 50s during the Berlin Crisis and some ancestors who fought in the War for Southern Independence. One of them came from a slave owning family and my relatives want to think he fought for the Union, which he may have.

I voluntarily joined the military back in the 80s before it was ‘cool’ for the average mush head to do so because the stink of the Vietnam fiasco(from which we should have kept our troops home and had them kill our commies here first) and vividly remember a female cousin asking me if I could somehow ‘get out’ of being activated for what became Desert Storm. I also remember the looks one would get if the sheeple thought you were military. There were no yellow ribbons around trees in pre-gulf-war days.

The meaning of her question still haunts me. Do we ever fight for a ‘just cause?’ Is the petrodollar, which goes a long way to providing the standard of living we enjoy here a ‘just cause?’ Again, maybe that’s a question for another time. But my cousin’s reasoning, I’m sure, was not because of any great political understanding, because at that time I was not really ‘awake’ and I know she’s still politically oblivious after all these years, at least beyond voting for a candidate based on whether or not it meets her standards of ‘morality’ which come not from years of thought or education but from years of mindlessly attending church.

I don’t remember if I attempted to explain to her that it would be wrong to try to ‘get out of it’ if for no other reason than that would be grossly unfair to my fellow Marines and to some sense of camaraderie that all people in such situations should feel on some level. I really think I just stared at her in disbelief, and disgust.

But then our American individualism may be too far advanced for that. The zombie apocalypse that’s on our doorstep and in Europe’s living rooms due to our failure to hunt our white “Liberal”(commie) trash to extinction may prove this.

The point of worrying about what she asked me is this: There are real monsters in this world and sometimes we do have to band together to kill the cave bear. This will likely never change no matter how often moronic, dangerous, real and false pacifists claim so.

I vividly remember a fellow Marine reservist saying one day, way before the 9/11 ‘false flag’(to whatever degree), that there’d never be another ‘conventional’ war and the next one would be nuclear. Such was the propaganda of the times. Our drones, satellites and aircraft carriers and other assorted tech exist on a slender thread of electricity that is not guaranteed to continue to flow.

There are many memes floating around that remind us of a Japanese General saying how dangerous it would be to invade America because “There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” On Parris Island there are airstrips that were built during WWII because during that time they had reduced boot camp to six weeks and were flying them straight out to war. But they were still training them.

From my time in the militia I can tell you that the average patriot is not ready to go to war at the drop of a hat. If you get ‘American men'(very loosely defined) to volunteer and show up overnight to fight some true organized force they would die like flies. During the American Revolution there were times when the militias fought admirably and won the day and others when they ran screaming like little girls. That is war.

From my time in the military I can tell you how hard it is to maintain discipline and readiness among those who have been trained. Before the first Gulf War we received some training but when we were actually over there I saw many issues that had not been addressed.

During our time in Saudi Arabia serving as Combat Military Police one of our sergeants told us a female Marine had been caught sending 50 grand in cash and checks home in a sea bag. I’ll leave how she earned that up to your imagination.

That ‘Intel’ could have been a product of the rumor mill that always exists in such situations but it wouldn’t surprise me. There were times when female Marines certainly distracted me. Ignoring human biology and the communist propaganda that uses it is not only childish but dangerous.

I constantly see morons(trolls) online claiming we could never stand up against the ‘modern’ military. The same liars will claim the empire lost in Vietnam because they couldn’t fight an organized guerrilla campaign when a Vietnamese general allegedly said after the war that it was won over here where our real enemies have always been. Even if he didn’t make the statement it’s certainly true.

Guerrilla warfare is the oldest form of killing our fellow kind in an organized fashion. The fights over waterholes or shelter or hunting grounds were carried out in such a fashion. They didn’t likely stand back with flags and diplomats and have gentlemanly discussions before or after. That came later.

A constant meme among ‘pro-gunners’ and Second Amendment activists is more or less ‘what would the holocaust have been like if the Jews had been armed and fought back.’ A tiny ‘volunteer’ force did fight back in the Warsaw Ghetto. It was too little too late.

But then as now too many fail to understand, because thinking is the hardest work to be done and most avoid it at all costs, that sometimes humanity’s back is thrown against the wall and there is no other choice but to kill or be killed.

As I used to write in comment sections: ‘Millions will dig the ditch that they’re told to dig then wet their pants as the machine gun bolts slam home and die stupidly wondering “How did this ever happen to me?”

Common sense, something in severe short supply nowadays, tells us that not everyone can or should be ‘on the front line.’ There are many ways to fight, with or without advanced technology. We used to learn in school how Betsy Ross sewed the flag. Now they walk and spit on it and we’re stupid enough to call them our ‘fellow Americans.’

That above all things must change.
