Why The People should Revolt Against the United States Government…

   We, as a Nation, are living in perilous times. But I don’t have to tell you that! What I am going to tell you is that we must be willing to rise up and go to war against the government that has abandoned the Constitution and instead has made us slaves of the Crown of Government. Of course I will tell you why and how!

   Let’s start in the present and move backward. Don’t worry, no “conspiracy” theories here, just some facts. 

   All members of Congress, their aids and staffers and their immediate families, the President and all White House aids and staffers, and their immediate families, the Supreme Court and their aids and staffers and immediate families all have something in common. They are exempt from a law that all individual citizens must comply with or face a fine, or as the SCOTUS has called it, a tax. They have placed themselves above the people. They have stated loudly that they will pass laws that they themselves do NOT have to follow, but the citizens of the United States MUST follow. This is a blatant violation of the Constitution. Congress cannot pass laws and not follow them. They are the elected of the land and therefore susceptible to the same penalties as the rest of us.

   Think about it. If it is legal for Congress to do that, then they could pass laws against anything they wish and exempt themselves. Murder, extortion, kidnapping, larceny, and any other law they pass could include an exemption. Whether it’s called a tax or a penalty doesn’t matter! Exempt from a tax penalty that others cannot claim, or exempt from a fine that others could be ordered to pay for non-compliance, is all the same. So the President and Congress has subverted the Law they demand We The People adhere to!

   Just as the colonists had to pay taxes and tarrifs that the people in England didn’t have to pay, even though they were still British citizens at the time. It is what led to the American Revolution! It is WHY there is a United States of America! And for this reason alone we should rise against our government. But there are many more.

   I heard a Congresswoman recently say that although 95% of her constituents were against military action in Syria, she was going to vote FOR military action in Syria because “sometimes we have to make decisions for the good of the people.” Well, Ma’am, THAT is not why you were elected! You are a REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PEOPLE. And to represent the people, you must vote as the people COMMAND YOU TO VOTE! Our representatives have forgotten their place, and we MUST direct them back to their place. That is our duty to the Constitution!

   This administration has weakened our military. He has found ways to remove senior officers, he and Congress have defunded the Armed Forces, they have placed pride in ones “sexuality” over the honor of being called an American soldier, he has placed us in jeopardy by removing forces against Generals dire warnings, and killed hundreds of children through drone strikes. Yes CHILDREN… This has fueled jihadist’s fires around the world.

   This administration along with Eric Holder illegally sold guns to druglords and intentionally allowed those guns to go I to Mexico (a violation of international law in itself). Some of those guns have killed Americans. Understand this: If I give someone a firearm, knowing that they are going to use it to commit a fell y, then under the law, I am JUST AS GUILTY as the person who commits the crime! Federal law ANDstate laws hold me accountable! WHY HAS Obama and Holder and others NOT been held accountable? We THE PEOPLE MUST STAND UP AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE!

   Obama and the State Department sat and watched REALTIME as Ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 others defending him were attacked and killed. It has been shown that Chris Stevens and at least two of the others were still alive after the first attack. The administration could have saved their lives, with time to spare. But instead, they called off the rescue mission, and several hours later, Chris Stevens and 3 others were dead. Ambassador Stevens was tortured, beaten, raped with a cattle prod, and murdered, as Obama and Hilary Clinton looked on. The next day, and for a month afterwards they blamed the attack on a video, yet evidence has shown they KNEW it was a planned terrorist attack. But Obama, Clinton, Susan Rice and other administration officials intentionally lied to the American people. They conspired AGAINST the American people. And for this, they should be held accountable…

   There are so many more violations by this administration and by Congress, when any one of these is enough to constitute a forceful removal by revolution.

   It is time for the American militia to rise up against these tyrants. It is time for the United States Military to STAND UP and uphold their oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies BOTH foreign and DOMESTIC! Obama, Clinton, Holder and at least 1/2 of Congress should be classified as DOMESTIC ENEMIES, for they have violated their oath, and they have both intentionally and unintentionally subverted the Constitution, and committed crimes against the people of this great nation.

   It is time friends, Patriots, and Soldiers. It is time to hold them accountable. It is time to define for them why our Founding Fathers preserved our Right to bear Arms within the Bill of Rights!


“I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
George Mason
Co-author of the Second Amendment
during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

It is time to show them We will no longer be enslaved!

What say you America? Are you willing to Stand Up as your Forefather Stood and fight those who are enslaving us?

I leave you with this:

“The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution.”

Noah Webster
American Lexicographer

There is no “Big Brother”…

   Let’s face it…
   We are certifiably insane. By “we” I mean us Patriots, Revolutionaries, Conspiracy Theorists, Right Wing Christian Conservatives, Far Right anti-establishment zealots, etc…  We have been screaming the same thing for decades, and it has made us crazy. Bear with me, I beg of you. please keep reading, as there is a point to my rambling.
   More than 30 years ago we told society that George Orwell had it right. And as 1984 came and went, the power elite sat quietly and didn’t interfere with our rampant raging. We told the world that Big Brother was systematically setting up a worldwide monitoring platform. The mainstream called us idiots. Now, today we have traffic cameras to mail you a ticket, satellites that can read the fortunes you just pulled from a cookie, and policing agencies such as the CIA, NSA, STATE POLICE, LOCAL POLICE, CHINESE CYBER TERRORISTS, and others reading your email as you open it. The worlds fastest computer resides in a building run by the NSA and is called ESCHELON is “trained” to pull digital and electronic data from the air in order to listen to and record select conversations. Algorithm s designed by DOD computer scientists and implemented by Google and Apple are trained to track and record your every keystroke. All of these things are no longer speculation, but rather admitted and proven facts… we are crazy.
   We said the Government would utilize tragedies in order to snatch away God-given rights. During Hurricane Katrina and for nearly 5 years afterwards, National Guard troops patrolled, harassed, interrogated, seized firearms, and killed in cold blood the citizens of New Orleans. Now with the tragedy of Sandy Hook, bills are floating through many state legislatures and thenUS Congress to subvert the Second Amendment. One bill in Washington State right now would actually authorize police to annually enter citizens homes without a warrant to search for firearms. The Liberal Media, led by the British Socialist Piers Morgan, who incidentally fled Britain to avoid prosecution for illegal wire tapping and hacking, has demonized the Second Amendment and called for the murder of gun enthusiasts openly on his television show. Yet we are the evil ones…
   We warned about socialized banking and healthcare, and here we are in 2013 with Obamacare taking hold of every American citizen. Not only does it mandate that everyone must buy an expensive product, but that by not doing so will cause financial and physical harm to the non-compliant. By not purchasing the mandated health insurance, you can be fined heavily (taxed) and even imprisoned for tax evasion if you refuse to pay the tax. The Government is so serious about this that they have hired an additional 45,000 IRS agents and armed them to enforce the Obamacare mandates. And we are crazy…
   We warned America about the dangers of removing Prayer from school. That separation of church and state was not meant to limit the excersize of religion but to limit the governments interference in religious beliefs and practices. Now it is illegal to pray in school (unless you practice Islam) yet most high schools and even some junior high schools teach and even demonstrate how to properly put on a comdom. For some odd reason our children now believe that safer sex is better than not having sex. And why should we expect our teens and preteens to not have sex? After all, everything from cereal commercials to shampoo commercials are advertised with blatant sexual innuendo. But we are crazy…
   We warned of the declining and worthless American dollar. Not only is it not backed by gold or silver anymore, but it costs more to manufacture the specialized paper and ink and run it through the press than the buying power it symbolizes. Nowadays, our dollar is backed by bonds from foreign investors, usually in the form of property and manufactured goods. Imagine what America loses if and when we default. The truth of the matter is this; the property you “own” actually belongs to a corporation. In fact, through the Social Security Administration and the treasury bond that is you birth certificate, you belong to a corporation. The name of that corporation? The United States of America, INC… Yet we were the crazy ones for warning you.
   In most cities and even some small towns, every move you make throughout the day is documents by cameras of business, stop lights, and random checkpoints. Your monetary transactions are video taped, recorded by your financial institution, scrutinized by the IRS, and catalogued by analysts and set to algorithm s for personalized advertising. We told you this would happen, and for telling you the truth, we are crazy…
   We told you the Government left unchecked by the people, entrusted to career politicians and community activists, driven by their own social agendas and backed by overseas banks and insurance companies, as well as secretive elitists would lead to one world governed by a power elite. And even though you are looking at it all today, as it takes place… We are still crazy…
   Fair enough, I will accept that charge, but if I accept the charge of insanity, in the face of all the ever present facts, then you too must admit to some things…
   You must admit that even though you acknowledge all these things as fact, you are just to complacent to give a damn. You are comfortable with your children living in the near future in a place that 30 years ago, we warned you about. You must face the demon that will become the next 30 years. Until then, keep living in your dream world…. Where there is no Big Brother!
  

GOP and Feinstein join to fulfill Obama’s demand for renewed warrantless eavesdropping

If it comes as a surprise to you that for the past 30 plus years, the “leaders” of this country have colluded to usher in the NWO, then hopefully THAT surprise will now AWAKEN you.
And if you believe that “Minority Report” is just another movie, then maybe you should watch it again. This time, remove the three creepy beings in the bathtub and replace them with three houses of government (The House of Reps, the Senate, and the White House) and you have the “all seeing” component.
Wake up folks, the Government is NOT your keeper!

American Everyman

by Glenn Greenwald, Guardian

To this day, many people identify mid-2008 as the time they realized what type of politician Barack Obama actually is. Six months before, when seeking the Democratic nomination, then-Sen. Obama unambiguously vowed that he would filibuster “any bill” that retroactively immunized the telecom industry for having participated in the illegal Bush NSA warrantless eavesdropping program.

But in July 2008, once he had secured the nomination, a bill came before the Senate that did exactly that – the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 – and Obama not only failed to filibuster as promised, but far worse, he voted against the filibuster brought by other Senators, and then voted in favor of enacting the bill itself. That blatant, unblinking violation of his own clear promise – actively supporting a bill he had sworn months earlier he would block from a vote – caused a serious rift even…

American Revolutionaries… It is Time to Dance

“One Nation Under Socialism” by Artist Jon McNaughton

 

These Are the Times That Try Men’s Souls

“If there
must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace”
Thomas Paine 1776

These are TRULY the times that try men’s souls. It it not hard to see and understand
that we are facing the same tyranny that our forefathers faced over two and a
quarter centuries ago. Unless we revert back to their ideology, their
attitude, and their willingness to act BEFORE it is to late, then unlike them,
we will crumble! We will succumb entirely to the tyranny of these evil
administrators, these powers in high places. We will relinquish freedom for security
and effectually prove that we deserve neither!  Unless American’s who still believe
in the BASIS for which we were foundedmake a choice to stand up now and demand
accountability of our “leaders” and restoration of the founding principles of the Greatest Nation
the world has ever known, then we will cease as a Nation built upon the Liberty
of the Human Soul.

There are soldiers dying to protect the freedom of a people who
are no longer free.  One of the missions of this site, this organization of Revolutionaries,
Restorationists, Believers, Missionaries, Oathkeepers, Three Percenters, and Christians
is to expose the lies, tear down the illusion of freedom, and restore the founding principles
of our Nation. Principles, like it or not, that are based on Judeo-Christian fundamentals and morals.
Many of our friends are non-believers, followers of different faiths, and some still seeking.
Not all of the founding fathers were Christians, however, we ALL agree, just as they did, that this
Nation was built on the foundation of Judeo-Christian morals and the blood of men and women
who desired Liberty. Some of which were not Christian, yet they KNEW the importance thereof!

We can no longer turn a blind eye to the subversive tactics and ideologies the ruling powers
of this Country, and even the whole world, have instituted in the name of social dependency.
The United Nations, NATO, the Globalists, Elite Bankers, and other powerful
organizations have committed a great atrocity. We, as a people, no longer turn to our brothers and
sisters when we are in need. We no longer offer a helping hand when our neighbor is in need.
We instead turn to the government. After all, we are entitled to the help they offer, right? They take
money from our paycheck to pay for the social programs that offer us security in exchange for
a litle freedom. Maybe it’s time to stand up and NOT let them control us anymore! And THAT
is where it begins! With you and I realizing, and understanding, that we are SUBJECTS of a
royal world government that gains more and more control wioth every passing day. And as we
expose the illusion of freedom, we must then make another realization. We must realize that only
one thing will stop them. Only one thing will make us truly free again. Only one thing will reinstate
Liberty for our childrens future. Revolution.

revolution in the way we think, in the ways we treat one another, and in the way we raise our
children. A Revolution to put God back in America again! A revolution to RESTORE what our
founding fathers gave to us. As Dr. Benjamin Franklin left the Constitutional Convention in 1787,
he was approached by a Mrs. Powell, who asked him,
“What have you given us, Dr. Franklin?”
“A republic madam,”  he replied, “if you can keep it.”

We have lost our Constitutional Republic folks. It has been replaced by a Social Democracy.
And now, We the People MUST stand up and fight. That is a FACT, because the powers that be
will NOT just give it back. Just as our forefathers had to stand up with a mere three percent of
the population in the colonies and fight, so must we. Only, this time, it is not the Crown nor the King.
Our battle is against something much bigger. It is against men who sit in high places, with no need of
a crown or a sceptre. They control the men with the crowns and the sceptres. This is a physical AND a
spiritual battle and the fight must take place on both battlefields.

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this
world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The Crown of England is no longer the opposition. The Crown of this tyrannical,
over-sized,  wild and unchecked United States Government IS the travesty eating
away at the soul of a Nation. The god of these tyrants is Mammon, and his apostles
sit in the highest places upon this world. They sit in the UN, and in the banks, and in
the insurance companies. They control the assets that keep society in need of their
Oligarchy. As long as the people receive their “sandwich”, the people will obey.

The liberal notion that traditional value must be
banned and outlawed so that “alternative” ideologies might be exalted is
devastating this Country that we love
, and this Constitution that we
defend. There is no coexistence with a people who continually remove our rights
in order to exhalt their beliefs and immoralities. Have you ever noticed how intolerant
others become when you disagree with liberal and socialist ideology? Well it is past
time to demonstrate intolerance against those who say traditional American values
must be destroyed. It is time to rise in the spirit of our forefathers and make it known, “Not on my watch! ”
If the men and women who founded this nation could come together, then why is it so
hard for us? They were Christians, Agnostics, and even Atheists!

Patrick Henry declared: “It cannot be emphasized too strongly
or too often  that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by
Christians; not  on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
 For this very
reason peoples of  other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and
freedom of worship  here.”

Henry was right. It was precisely
because  our nation was founded upon the Rock of Christ that America became a
haven of  liberty and an asylum for so many of the persecuted and downtrodden of
our  world.

It was not a coalition of gods that brought our Pilgrim
forefathers to this continent. It was not a coalition of settlers (Hindus,
Muslims, and Christians) that brought the open Bible to the shores of this
great  land to establish a government based on the Law of God, and whose mission
was to  advance the Gospel of Christ. It was Jesus Christ Himself who brought
the tiny  Mayflower safely to the shores of this land, and it was the blessing
of Jesus  Christ Himself that made our nation great !

Add Me to the Extermination list… Says Americans

I will save the rhetoric for another time and another place. The bottom line is simple, pro 2nd Amendment advocates will now be categorized as even more heartless and cold blooded than ever before. Some have already jumped the fence to green pastures of disarmament and more are likely to join them.

This reason for this post is to add perspective to the decision making process and hopefully cause you to ask yourselves, is trading liberty worth one ounce of security?

And the bottom line is this, if the federal government outright banned all firearms tomorrow and criminalized ownership and possession of firearms, then you will find yourselves on one of two sides… The Constitutionally armed, or the voluntarily disarmed. Because if you agree to hand over your weapons, then you are volunteering to relinquish your liberty bestowed upon you at birth for the supposed security of an elitist tyranny promising to protect you from your neighbor, whom according to the governments ideology, you cannot trust nor defend yourself from on your own. The government will now be your brothers keeper, and yours as well.

So, without further ado, here are facts. Will we, as a Nation, as a free people, allow our name to be added to this list? Or, will we stand up, and uphold the Constitution by utilizing our God given, unalienable rights? It is for times like we are facing right now, today, that the Second Amendment was spelled out by our founding fathers. To defend ourselves as a nation, to uphold and defend the Constitution, to defend ourselves as individuals.

The Second Amendment is the peoples way of “checks and balances”… If we give that away, then WHO will hold this government accountable? An unarmed people will succumb to the slightest bend, but an armed people WILL resist.

God bless us all….

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control ?

56 million.

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’!

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.

SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

The James Holmes Puzzle

James Holmes, an unknown presence with virtually zero internet fingerprint, no criminal record, and a $26,000 grant from the federal government, is now the most searched name on the web. And the information that people are able to find is beginning to resemble a plot out of  Hollywood. With the new information concerning who James Holmes father is, and his significance, the plot is thickening. I know it has this writers blood curdling.

To Silence the Witness

   This “incident” is beginning to stink as the ramifications of just how far our government will go to cover-up and silence those that will speak out against it. It seems as if we are being run by a replica of the KGB, or the German SS.

James Holmes…. A 24 year old Ph.D. student with a masters in Nuero-Science, specializing in mind modification studies, was somehow able to purchase roughly $16,000 worth of firearms, ammunition, explosives, and tactical gear, remain undetected, enter a packed midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises, kill 12, injure dozens more, and then calmly walk outside and wait for the police, offering no resistance. Then, after being told this was the work of the Tea Party, the media reports that his mugshot will not be released, only to have one released on the day of his first appearance in court. Oddly, his mugshot, and his first court appearance show the same amount of facial hair, red blotches on his face, and exact hair placement. As if the mugshot was taken just moments before walking into the courtroom. Aren’t mugshots usually taken immediately after arrest, not three days later? Also, if he had begun the dropout process and was leaving school, how and when did the government hand him over $26,000 that never had to be repaid?

And now there is his father Robert Holmes. Believe me when I tell you, THIS is where the pond turns into an ocean!  He is the  Senior Lead Scientist at Fair Isaac. He spent his entire life in the financial and credit services. His educational background shows exceptional emphasis on Mathematics.He has an extensive educational background. It is reported that he was about to go before Congress to testify against a banking scandal. Robert Holmes current position with FICO involves him handling Fraud.Now for those of you who don’t know FICO is a company that gives credit scores to Businesses and individuals. These credit scores helps Banks and others make complex decisions that involve investing. They come up with these credit scores and ratings by doing extensive analyzing and research. Then FICO provides this information to large companies.

Just a passing glance would not throw up any red flags, but just a little deeper and the wound festers. You see, Robert Holmes, the father of the Aurora Shooter, is set to testify at the LIBOR banking scandal hearings…. That’s right, he is scheduled to testify AGAINST one of THE largest financial institutions on the planet. Barclay’s, who was found to be in the midst of the LIBOR scandal, is the backbone of names such as Tim Geitner, George Soros, the Bank of America, and countless other big names.  LIBOR (London Inter Bank Offered Rate) has been rigged to benefit traders. David Green, the director of the SFO said that he had “decided to formally accept the Libor matter for investigation.” Regulators earlier had slapped Barclay’s Bank with a hefty £290m fine for indulging in these unlawful practices. However, it is suspected that the fixing is the handiwork of a more widespread network and that is what the SFO investigation hopes to unravel. And that is where Robert Holmes comes in. As the Senior Lead Scientist of FICO puts his expertise to the grinding block. His JOB is to expose fraud, especially when that fraud covers EVERY MAJOR FINANCIAL Institution in the Western Hemisphere!

(For more concerning the LIBOR scandal: Google Search Results for Libor Scandal )

His son, James, was following a now fateful choice of studies. The field of Nuero-Sciences is broad, but the depth of it is telling, and the fields of Cognitive and Behavioral Neuro-Science can be downright freightening. At the cognitive level, cognitive neuroscience addresses the questions of how psychological functions are produced by neural circuitry. The emergence of powerful new measurement techniques such as neuroimaging (e.g., fMRIPETSPECT), electrophysiology, and human genetic analysis combined with sophisticated experimental techniques from cognitive psychology allowsneuroscientists and psychologists to address abstract questions such as how human cognition and emotion are mapped to specific neural substrates.

Neuroscience is also allied with the social and behavioral sciences as well as nascent interdisciplinary fields such as neuroeconomicsdecision theory, and social neuroscience to address complex questions about interactions of the brain with its environment.

These areas of the sciences study Brain and MIND Modification. To put it simply, James Holmes was an EASY target for the powers that be.  And the debut of  the Dark Knight movie was an easy explanation.

This is shaping up to NOT be a Conspiracy Theory. As the facts are presenting themselves faster than TPTB are able to scrub them, it is becoming clear:

   THE FINANCIAL MASTERS OF THE WORLD USED THIS MIND ALTERED CHILD OF THE MAN WHO WAS SET TO TESTIFY IN A SUIT THAT WOULD BRING THE WORLD BANK CRASHING DOWN!

And they did so by using Robert Holmes son, James, to murder innocent people, and forever alter the lives of many more. And why not knock out two birds with one stone? Not only scare the be-jeezus out out Robert Holmes and ruin his families lives to keep him quiet, but in causing the deaths of a dozen more, through his son, who purchased the weapons with some strange government grant, at a time when the UN is calling for a ban of ALL small arms.

The James Holmes Puzzle is continuing to develop. There are so many unanswered questions. Here is one to ponder. How is THIS the same person? (And I will leave it at that!)

   THIS story is FAR from over! Expect updates from me.

The motion, filed in Arapahoe County court, asks for the records in the case to be sealed, including search warrants, affidavits, orders and the “case file.”

The District Attorney’s affidavit says prosecutors are investigating first-degree murder charges against Holmes, but that disclosure of the court records would be “contrary to public interest” and “could jeopardize the ongoing investigation.” The Daily

Below is the full text of one of the greatest speeches by one of the greatest men to stand up for Colonists, forge an attitude that “enough is enough”, and helped to cement a people, “We the People” into a Nation. 

The Crown of England is no longer the opposition. The Crown of this tyrannical, over-sized,  wild and unchecked United States Government IS the travesty eating away at the soul of a Nation. The liberal notion that traditional value must be banned and outlawed so that “alternative” ideologies might be exalted is devastating this Country that we love, and this Constitution that we defend.

Introduction by MJ Richardson 

December 23, 1776

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER” and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.

Whether the independence of the continent was declared too soon, or delayed too long, I will not now enter into as an argument; my own simple opinion is, that had it been eight months earlier, it would have been much better. We did not make a proper use of last winter, neither could we, while we were in a dependent state. However, the fault, if it were one, was all our own [NOTE]; we have none to blame but ourselves. But no great deal is lost yet. All that Howe has been doing for this month past, is rather a ravage than a conquest, which the spirit of the Jerseys, a year ago, would have quickly repulsed, and which time and a little resolution will soon recover.

I have as little superstition in me as any man living, but my secret opinion has ever been, and still is, that God Almighty will not give up a people to military destruction, or leave them unsupportedly to perish, who have so earnestly and so repeatedly sought to avoid the calamities of war, by every decent method which wisdom could invent. Neither have I so much of the infidel in me, as to suppose that He has relinquished the government of the world, and given us up to the care of devils; and as I do not, I cannot see on what grounds the king of Britain can look up to heaven for help against us: a common murderer, a highwayman, or a house-breaker, has as good a pretence as he.

‘Tis surprising to see how rapidly a panic will sometimes run through a country. All nations and ages have been subject to them. Britain has trembled like an ague at the report of a French fleet of flat-bottomed boats; and in the fourteenth [fifteenth] century the whole English army, after ravaging the kingdom of France, was driven back like men petrified with fear; and this brave exploit was performed by a few broken forces collected and headed by a woman, Joan of Arc. Would that heaven might inspire some Jersey maid to spirit up her countrymen, and save her fair fellow sufferers from ravage and ravishment! Yet panics, in some cases, have their uses; they produce as much good as hurt. Their duration is always short; the mind soon grows through them, and acquires a firmer habit than before. But their peculiar advantage is, that they are the touchstones of sincerity and hypocrisy, and bring things and men to light, which might otherwise have lain forever undiscovered. In fact, they have the same effect on secret traitors, which an imaginary apparition would have upon a private murderer. They sift out the hidden thoughts of man, and hold them up in public to the world. Many a disguised Tory has lately shown his head, that shall penitentially solemnize with curses the day on which Howe arrived upon the Delaware.

As I was with the troops at Fort Lee, and marched with them to the edge of Pennsylvania, I am well acquainted with many circumstances, which those who live at a distance know but little or nothing of. Our situation there was exceedingly cramped, the place being a narrow neck of land between the North River and the Hackensack. Our force was inconsiderable, being not one-fourth so great as Howe could bring against us. We had no army at hand to have relieved the garrison, had we shut ourselves up and stood on our defence. Our ammunition, light artillery, and the best part of our stores, had been removed, on the apprehension that Howe would endeavor to penetrate the Jerseys, in which case Fort Lee could be of no use to us; for it must occur to every thinking man, whether in the army or not, that these kind of field forts are only for temporary purposes, and last in use no longer than the enemy directs his force against the particular object which such forts are raised to defend. Such was our situation and condition at Fort Lee on the morning of the 20th of November, when an officer arrived with information that the enemy with 200 boats had landed about seven miles above; Major General [Nathaniel] Green, who commanded the garrison, immediately ordered them under arms, and sent express to General Washington at the town of Hackensack, distant by the way of the ferry = six miles. Our first object was to secure the bridge over the Hackensack, which laid up the river between the enemy and us, about six miles from us, and three from them. General Washington arrived in about three-quarters of an hour, and marched at the head of the troops towards the bridge, which place I expected we should have a brush for; however, they did not choose to dispute it with us, and the greatest part of our troops went over the bridge, the rest over the ferry, except some which passed at a mill on a small creek, between the bridge and the ferry, and made their way through some marshy grounds up to the town of Hackensack, and there passed the river. We brought off as much baggage as the wagons could contain, the rest was lost. The simple object was to bring off the garrison, and march them on till they could be strengthened by the Jersey or Pennsylvania militia, so as to be enabled to make a stand. We staid four days at Newark, collected our out-posts with some of the Jersey militia, and marched out twice to meet the enemy, on being informed that they were advancing, though our numbers were greatly inferior to theirs. Howe, in my little opinion, committed a great error in generalship in not throwing a body of forces off from Staten Island through Amboy, by which means he might have seized all our stores at Brunswick, and intercepted our march into Pennsylvania; but if we believe the power of hell to be limited, we must likewise believe that their agents are under some providential control.

I shall not now attempt to give all the particulars of our retreat to the Delaware; suffice it for the present to say, that both officers and men, though greatly harassed and fatigued, frequently without rest, covering, or provision, the inevitable consequences of a long retreat, bore it with a manly and martial spirit. All their wishes centred in one, which was, that the country would turn out and help them to drive the enemy back. Voltaire has remarked that King William never appeared to full advantage but in difficulties and in action; the same remark may be made on General Washington, for the character fits him. There is a natural firmness in some minds which cannot be unlocked by trifles, but which, when unlocked, discovers a cabinet of fortitude; and I reckon it among those kind of public blessings, which we do not immediately see, that God hath blessed him with uninterrupted health, and given him a mind that can even flourish upon care.

I shall conclude this paper with some miscellaneous remarks on the state of our affairs; and shall begin with asking the following question, Why is it that the enemy have left the New England provinces, and made these middle ones the seat of war? The answer is easy: New England is not infested with Tories, and we are. I have been tender in raising the cry against these men, and used numberless arguments to show them their danger, but it will not do to sacrifice a world either to their folly or their baseness. The period is now arrived, in which either they or we must change our sentiments, or one or both must fall. And what is a Tory? Good God! What is he? I should not be afraid to go with a hundred Whigs against a thousand Tories, were they to attempt to get into arms. Every Tory is a coward; for servile, slavish, self-interested fear is the foundation of Toryism; and a man under such influence, though he may be cruel, never can be brave.

But, before the line of irrecoverable separation be drawn between us, let us reason the matter together: Your conduct is an invitation to the enemy, yet not one in a thousand of you has heart enough to join him. Howe is as much deceived by you as the American cause is injured by you. He expects you will all take up arms, and flock to his standard, with muskets on your shoulders. Your opinions are of no use to him, unless you support him personally, for ’tis soldiers, and not Tories, that he wants.

I once felt all that kind of anger, which a man ought to feel, against the mean principles that are held by the Tories: a noted one, who kept a tavern at Amboy, was standing at his door, with as pretty a child in his hand, about eight or nine years old, as I ever saw, and after speaking his mind as freely as he thought was prudent, finished with this unfatherly expression, “Well! give me peace in my day.” Not a man lives on the continent but fully believes that a separation must some time or other finally take place, and a generous parent should have said, “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace;” and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty. Not a place upon earth might be so happy as America. Her situation is remote from all the wrangling world, and she has nothing to do but to trade with them. A man can distinguish himself between temper and principle, and I am as confident, as I am that God governs the world, that America will never be happy till she gets clear of foreign dominion. Wars, without ceasing, will break out till that period arrives, and the continent must in the end be conqueror; for though the flame of liberty may sometimes cease to shine, the coal can never expire.

America did not, nor does not want force; but she wanted a proper application of that force. Wisdom is not the purchase of a day, and it is no wonder that we should err at the first setting off. From an excess of tenderness, we were unwilling to raise an army, and trusted our cause to the temporary defence of a well-meaning militia. A summer’s experience has now taught us better; yet with those troops, while they were collected, we were able to set bounds to the progress of the enemy, and, thank God! they are again assembling. I always considered militia as the best troops in the world for a sudden exertion, but they will not do for a long campaign. Howe, it is probable, will make an attempt on this city [Philadelphia]; should he fail on this side the Delaware, he is ruined. If he succeeds, our cause is not ruined. He stakes all on his side against a part on ours; admitting he succeeds, the consequence will be, that armies from both ends of the continent will march to assist their suffering friends in the middle states; for he cannot go everywhere, it is impossible. I consider Howe as the greatest enemy the Tories have; he is bringing a war into their country, which, had it not been for him and partly for themselves, they had been clear of. Should he now be expelled, I wish with all the devotion of a Christian, that the names of Whig and Tory may never more be mentioned; but should the Tories give him encouragement to come, or assistance if he come, I as sincerely wish that our next year’s arms may expel them from the continent, and the Congress appropriate their possessions to the relief of those who have suffered in well-doing. A single successful battle next year will settle the whole. America could carry on a two years’ war by the confiscation of the property of disaffected persons, and be made happy by their expulsion. Say not that this is revenge, call it rather the soft resentment of a suffering people, who, having no object in view but the good of all, have staked their own all upon a seemingly doubtful event. Yet it is folly to argue against determined hardness; eloquence may strike the ear, and the language of sorrow draw forth the tear of compassion, but nothing can reach the heart that is steeled with prejudice.

Quitting this class of men, I turn with the warm ardor of a friend to those who have nobly stood, and are yet determined to stand the matter out: I call not upon a few, but upon all: not on this state or that state, but on every state: up and help us; lay your shoulders to the wheel; better have too much force than too little, when so great an object is at stake. Let it be told to the future world, that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive, that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet and to repulse it. Say not that thousands are gone, turn out your tens of thousands; throw not the burden of the day upon Providence, but “show your faith by your works,” that God may bless you. It matters not where you live, or what rank of life you hold, the evil or the blessing will reach you all. The far and the near, the home counties and the back, the rich and the poor, will suffer or rejoice alike. The heart that feels not now is dead; the blood of his children will curse his cowardice, who shrinks back at a time when a little might have saved the whole, and made them happy. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death. My own line of reasoning is to myself as straight and clear as a ray of light. Not all the treasures of the world, so far as I believe, could have induced me to support an offensive war, for I think it murder; but if a thief breaks into my house, burns and destroys my property, and kills or threatens to kill me, or those that are in it, and to “bind me in all cases whatsoever” to his absolute will, am I to suffer it? What signifies it to me, whether he who does it is a king or a common man; my countryman or not my countryman; whether it be done by an individual villain, or an army of them? If we reason to the root of things we shall find no difference; neither can any just cause be assigned why we should punish in the one case and pardon in the other. Let them call me rebel and welcome, I feel no concern from it; but I should suffer the misery of devils, were I to make a whore of my soul by swearing allegiance to one whose character is that of a sottish, stupid, stubborn, worthless, brutish man. I conceive likewise a horrid idea in receiving mercy from a being, who at the last day shall be shrieking to the rocks and mountains to cover him, and fleeing with terror from the orphan, the widow, and the slain of America.

There are cases which cannot be overdone by language, and this is one. There are persons, too, who see not the full extent of the evil which threatens them; they solace themselves with hopes that the enemy, if he succeed, will be merciful. It is the madness of folly, to expect mercy from those who have refused to do justice; and even mercy, where conquest is the object, is only a trick of war; the cunning of the fox is as murderous as the violence of the wolf, and we ought to guard equally against both. Howe’s first object is, partly by threats and partly by promises, to terrify or seduce the people to deliver up their arms and receive mercy. The ministry recommended the same plan to Gage, and this is what the tories call making their peace, “a peace which passeth all understanding” indeed! A peace which would be the immediate forerunner of a worse ruin than any we have yet thought of. Ye men of Pennsylvania, do reason upon these things! Were the back counties to give up their arms, they would fall an easy prey to the Indians, who are all armed: this perhaps is what some Tories would not be sorry for. Were the home counties to deliver up their arms, they would be exposed to the resentment of the back counties who would then have it in their power to chastise their defection at pleasure. And were any one state to give up its arms, that state must be garrisoned by all Howe’s army of Britons and Hessians to preserve it from the anger of the rest. Mutual fear is the principal link in the chain of mutual love, and woe be to that state that breaks the compact. Howe is mercifully inviting you to barbarous destruction, and men must be either rogues or fools that will not see it. I dwell not upon the vapors of imagination; I bring reason to your ears, and, in language as plain as A, B, C, hold up truth to your eyes.

I thank God, that I fear not. I see no real cause for fear. I know our situation well, and can see the way out of it. While our army was collected, Howe dared not risk a battle; and it is no credit to him that he decamped from the White Plains, and waited a mean opportunity to ravage the defenceless Jerseys; but it is great credit to us, that, with a handful of men, we sustained an orderly retreat for near an hundred miles, brought off our ammunition, all our field pieces, the greatest part of our stores, and had four rivers to pass. None can say that our retreat was precipitate, for we were near three weeks in performing it, that the country might have time to come in. Twice we marched back to meet the enemy, and remained out till dark. The sign of fear was not seen in our camp, and had not some of the cowardly and disaffected inhabitants spread false alarms through the country, the Jerseys had never been ravaged. Once more we are again collected and collecting; our new army at both ends of the continent is recruiting fast, and we shall be able to open the next campaign with sixty thousand men, well armed and clothed. This is our situation, and who will may know it. By perseverance and fortitude we have the prospect of a glorious issue; by cowardice and submission, the sad choice of a variety of evils — a ravaged country — a depopulated city — habitations without safety, and slavery without hope — our homes turned into barracks and bawdy-houses for Hessians, and a future race to provide for, whose fathers we shall doubt of. Look on this picture and weep over it! and if there yet remains one thoughtless wretch who believes it not, let him suffer it unlamented.
