Channeling Rick Santorum, Freedom Watch’s Larry Klayman wrote in a column this weekend that Tea Party activists fighting President Obama are the true heirs to Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr.
Klayman, who is calling for the overthrow of the Obama administration, wrote in WorldNetDaily that he will soon establish a Third Continental Congress and a “government in waiting” since his tiny White House rally failed to convince the president to resign.
“[L]et us take Mandela’s achievement in liberating South Africa from bondage as a further example of what we can accomplish in freeing our own nation from the choking despotic governmental slavery of Obama and his pliant Democratic and Republican minions in Congress and the judiciary,” Klayman wrote.
“We will soon be announcing the date to convene the Third Continental Congress in Philadelphia early next year where, taking a page from the Founding Fathers, we will meet to plan the next steps of our Second American Revolution, with delegates from all 50 states.”
The parallels to the even direr situation the United States now finds itself in today are striking. We are ruled by someone who is in effect the pharaoh and at the least a Muslim at heart who disdains the Judeo-Christian heritage and foundations upon which our nation was forged and who has rung up extreme national debt and loathes capitalism, instead seeing it his “duty” to redistribute wealth to “his” people for years of their slavery. President Barack Hussein Obama and his compromised if not corrupt enablers in Congress and in the judiciary, like a time warp, have thrust We the People back to 1776 and provoked our Second American Revolution. And, the current revolutionary climate is even more severe, since unlike the colonies, contemporary America is on the steep decline. Our resources, wealth, ethics, spirituality and liberties are being stifled by a socialistic choke hold on our economy and lives, where our “Muslim” president and the government, not God, is to be worshiped and obeyed – else authoritarian henchmen and thugs at the NSA and IRS will destroy you.
To seek redress for our grievances, as our forefathers attempted leading up to independence day on July 4, 1776, the Reclaim America Now Coalition gave notice in front of the White House on Nov.19 of this year that if the people’s freedoms were not restored by the day after Thanksgiving, the Second American Revolution would begin in earnest. True to the predictions of anyone living in our times, our grievances went unanswered by our illegitimate government usurpers, and now we must make good on our threats of non-violent, civil disobedience to attempt redress.
In this regard, as we mourn the death this week of Nelson Mandela, a great man who, like his American counterpart Martin Luther King, used civil disobedience successfully to bring freedom to his people and by definition all people (who are created equal with certain unalienable rights, as Jefferson put it), let us take Mandela’s achievement in liberating South Africa from bondage as a further example of what we can accomplish in freeing our own nation from the choking despotic governmental slavery of Obama and his pliant Democratic and Republican minions in Congress and the judiciary.
We will soon be announcing the date to convene the Third Continental Congress in Philadelphia early next year where, taking a page from the Founding Fathers, we will meet to plan the next steps of our Second American Revolution, with delegates from all 50 states.
We will also use the occasion to appoint committees to coordinate the revolution and to elect a government in waiting to take over on the day when our current corrupt leaders are forced by the citizenry to leave their thrones and freedom is restored to our shores.
Like our Founding Fathers in 1776, the time is now to risk all we have to save the nation from government tyrants before all is lost.
This Thanksgiving, Larry Klayman is thankful for Ronald Reagan and that America somehow still exists after almost five years of the Obama presidency. Klayman writes in WorldNetDaily that his movement to overthrow Obama through a military coup and popular uprising will succeed “by the grace of God,” noting that he is “thankful this holiday period that we still, barely, have a nation to save.”
Klayman writes that America is “under the rule of a socialist, Marxist, pro-Islam, anti-American president who not only has malevolent intent to remake the United States in his own image, but has a latent hatred for persons who are not of his ilk” and a “criminal in the White House bows down to Allah.” He goes on to call his acolytes a new generation of Founding Fathers who will fight to oust Obama in honor of Reagan…and God.
On Thanksgiving Day, I read several chapters of President Ronald Reagan’s autobiography, “An American Life,” which I bought at the Reagan Library a few months earlier.
This reminded me of the simplicity and clarity of his world vision, his recounting of history in this era and his courage. Reagan was a confident and positive man, unafraid to tackle the significant and perilous events that swirled around him – from the nation’s then “malaise” and ruined economy left by his seriously flawed if not foolish predecessor, President Jimmy Carter, to the challenge of bringing down the “evil empire,” at the time known as the Soviet Union. Indeed, ever since his departure as president in 1989, the country has been devoid of real leadership and as a result has headed in the nosedive it now finds itself in under the rule of a socialist, Marxist, pro-Islam, anti-American president who not only has malevolent intent to remake the United States in his own image, but has a latent hatred for persons who are not of his ilk. The reading of President Reagan’s memoirs was a real inspiration to me; a sign that we can, with fearless courage and real sacrifice and personal risk, reclaim the vision of our Founding Fathers and again make the nation that “shining city on a hill” the Gipper talked about.
Today, we confront more than just a few problems, to put it mildly. Our current president, who lacks legitimacy to even be president since he’s not a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution, is mired in serious scandal – from NSA-gate, to IRS-gate, to Benghazi and Extortion 17-gate, to Obamacare-gate, to Fast and Furious-gate, to name just a few outrages. And, with his latest bow to Islam, the “mullah in chief” has again thrown not just Israel but our own security interests under the bus, with a Neville Chamberlain-type appeasement deal with his “fellow mullahs” in Tehran over Iran’s nuclear facilities and capabilities to build atomic weapons, which this neo-Nazi Muslim regime has threatened repeatedly to use to wipe Jews and Christians off the face of the map.
To those ultra -leftists apologists such as Al Sharpton and Martin Bashir, who, focusing on shamelessly bashing persons such as myself and other patriots not afraid to go against the current regime, intentionally turn a blind eye to reality and wonder why I say that the criminal in the White House bows down to Allah, his current deal with Iran is proof positive of his allegiance to Islamic interests over America and Israel. Just today, the Ayatollah Khatami warned President Obama not to include Israel in any nuclear negotiations because “the Jewish state must be destroyed.” The terrorist leader and member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts says, “However, we firmly believe (Israel) must be wiped off the face of the earth and we don’t recognize (its existence).”
Things do indeed look bleak this Thanksgiving. But like President Reagan, and taking a page from his self-confident optimism for the nation, I am more than hopeful that by the grace of God, the American people will rise up in the near future and peacefully rid the nation of the scourge that now occupies the White House, as the corrupt Republican leaders on Capitol Hill stand by raking in money for their 2014 political election coffers and continue to allow Obama to wreak havoc on our Judeo-Christian heritage and well-being.
We the People have no choice but to be optimistic, just as our Founding Fathers were when they declared independence in 1776, when all seemed bleak under the despotic rule of another tyrant, King George III.
So let us be thankful this holiday period that we still, barely, have a nation to save. And, with courage and sacrifice, we will save America and reclaim it as that “shining city on a hill” our great 20th century president did so much to further.
Join the Second American Revolution in honor of this great man, our country and God. We must save the United States from destruction under our current leadership. See www.reclaimamericanow.net to view our Reclaim America Now Coalition rally on Nov. 19 proclaiming the Second American Revolution with a host of activist speakers.
Larry Klayman’s effort to launch a Second American Revolution is fueled by all kinds of conspiracy theories, in addition to some reality-based concerns like the extent of the NSA’s electronic snooping. At Klayman’s rally last week, the now-expected invocations of tyranny and gun control fascism appeared alongside more esoteric theories, such as one about American sovereignty having been destroyed by an act of Congress in 1871 that changed “The Constitution for the United States of America” to “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES,” and in the process turned the U.S. from a country to a corporation in the service of nefarious bankers.
One speaker topped the conspiracy theory charts. Thomas Robert Lacovara-Stewart, an Oath Keeper who set his theatrical speech against a backdrop of patriotic music, said that the Department of Homeland Security “blew up Boston” and committed murder to hide it.
“Because we now truly do fear our own government. The words fill sadness in my heart. I am a true son of liberty, born into it by my own bloodlines direct. And that is exactly what they have sought to destroy with multiculturalism forced, to disintegration of morality and of the family. It has become presidentially acceptable to not only embrace immorality but promote it with spectacles such as we have never seen, time and time again, attacked by progressives, another word for communists…
Lacovara-Stewart encouraged people to visit his website, Libertyimprovementandcare.org. The website, which calls itself The Holy Order of the Sons of Liberty, promotes a remarkable collection of conspiracy theories, in addition to the charge that the Boston bombing was a “false flag” operation. Many are focused on conspiracy theory staples: Zionism, the Rothschilds, the Federal Reserve. Others are more creative. Lyme disease is biological warfare being carried out by former Nazis that were allowed entrance into the U.S. And speaking of Nazis,
Does it not bother anyone that the German people submitted to Hitler? Well here is why. The Nazis fluoridated the water of the people. And it made them passive and not able to do more than whine and complain but never have the nerve to do anything when faced with hard choices. Oh and by the way, they fluoridate ours too.
On his website, Lacovara-Stewart warns, “We must realize that these devils exist among us…continuing their one world government Nazi/Soviet Socialist bankers dream!”
At Klaymen’s rally, Lacovara-Stewart’s message for President Obama: “We are here to tell you that your eviction notice is served!”
At last week’s Reclaim America Now rally, a placard next to the speaker’s podium featured a Thomas Jefferson quote that many speakers cited: "When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." But there is apparently no evidence that Jefferson ever said this: the website of Monticello, Jefferson’s home, lists it among “spurious” quotations attributed to him.
Larry Klayman repeatedly described the Second American Revolution he is launching in nonviolent terms. He says massive peaceful civil disobedience will lead to the downfall of the current government and patriots from across the country will convene in Philadelphia to convene a new one. In recent weeks, though, Klayman has repeatedly warned that if the nonviolent approach doesn’t work, the people and the military will rise up and resort to “another recourse.” He has said that “violent revolution…looms on the horizon, if we cannot find a way to peacefully settle the score with the political establishment…”
A similar theme was heard at last week’s rally from speaker Manny Vega, who was identified as a retired marine and a Three Percenter. Three Percenters take their name from their belief that during the American Revolution only three percent of colonists took up arms against the British. The Anti-Defamation League reported a few years ago that Three Percenters, like the Oath Keepers, “promote the idea that the federal government is plotting to take away the rights of American citizens and must be resisted. The two groups are apparently trying to make inroads in the U.S. military.”
Vega, who said he served multiple tours in Iraq, said he thinks war is “abhorrent” and he wants peace to prevail. But he also said the Virginia Three Percenters are “planning and getting ready to mobilize if anything comes down.”
“But I’ll tell you what. There are a lot of men and women across this country who are willing to give it all, ok? Our forefathers, they fought for less. I am willing to fight today, ok? And, God, we don’t want violence, but if it should ever come to that, I can tell you what. I was willing to give my life in Iraq, over there, today I am more than willing to give my life over here, and I hope the president of the United States understands that. There are many more men and women like myself who are more than willing to give their lives here at home. Spread the word.”
At last week’s less-than-spectacular kickoff for the Second American Revolution, Larry Klayman announced that President Obama has until this coming Friday, November 29, to resign. If he doesn’t, Klayman and his friends will move forward with their plan to organize mass civil disobedience, force the resignation of President Obama and the Congress, and replace them with a government-in-waiting to be formed in Philadelphia in the coming weeks.
The idea was even too much for Alan Keyes, who decided not to show up at Klayman’s rally in Washington DC last week. Klayman read the crowd a letter from Keyes explaining his decision, then dismissed Keyes’ argument that Americans should rely on grassroots political organizing rather than Egyptian-style mass demonstrations. Klayman said he no longer believes America can be fixed through elections, at least not until he’s “cleaned house.” Klayman complained bitterly that none of the Tea Party-affiliated members of Congress was willing to attend his revolution rally.
One speaker who did show up at Klayman’s rally was Michael Peroutka, the U.S. Constitution Party’s presidential nominee in 2004 (he got about 150,000 votes). According to the party’s platform, “The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.” Peroutka is also a southern secessionist and Christian Reconstructionist who sees the Republican Party and “Godless” conservative movement as part of the problem.
Just last month, Peroutka wrote, “Anyone, including those who identify with the ‘Tea Party’, who loves America and desires real reform, would do well to disengage themselves from the Republican Party and their brand of worthless, Godless, unprincipled conservatism.” And in challenging Rush Limbaugh’s rhetoric about Republicans having been “hoodwinked” by Democrats and the media during the government shutdown showdown, Peroutka wrote,
Isn’t it more likely that those who have been “hoodwinked” are those that put their trust in the Republican party and the Godless, conservative movement? Isn’t it beyond time to return to the true American View of law and government, acknowledging the Creator God as the Supreme Judge of the Universe and the written Constitution as the Supreme law of the Land?
At the rally, Peroutka praised Klayman as a “legal restorer,” saying “an order has been denigrated and lost and needs to be found and recovered and restored.” His rhetoric echoes Christian Reconstructionist godfather Rousas John Rushdoony, who said, “The only true order is founded on Biblical law. All law is religious in nature, and every non-Biblical law-order represents an anti-Christian religion.” Klayman is a member of the secretive Council on National Policy, where he has had the chance to rub shoulders with people like Constitution Party founder Howard Phillips, who died earlier this year. In his introduction to Peroutka, Klayman praised Phillips as “a great American” and “one of the icons of the conservative movement.”
In addition to his association with the Constitution Party, Peroutka is the founder of the Institute on the Constitution, a Maryland-based group that spreads Christian Reconstructionist ideas about the law and Constitution through seminars presented around the country. Peroutka’s remarks at the rally echo the Institute’s message that the only law that matters is God’s law:
“There is a God. Our rights come from him. The purpose of civil government is to protect and defend God-given rights. This is the American view of law and government. It also happens to be the biblical view of law and government. America was founded upon the biblical view of law and government….”
According to this Christian Reconstructionist view, God has not granted government the authority to have any role, for example, in education or the alleviation of poverty; God gives that responsibility to churches and families. Religion scholar Julie Ingersoll describes Christian Reconstructionism this way:
For Reconstructionists, the civil government’s authority is limited to protecting citizens from criminals. Family and ecclesiastical authority are established to uphold (and enforce) other aspects of biblical law. That’s not to say that any of these institutions are understood as functioning autonomously; all are under the authority of God and are to function according to biblical law. But each is independent of the others.
The idea that the Bible puts strict limits on government’s “jurisdiction” is at the core of Christian Reconstructionist thinking, and is frequently embraced by more “mainstream” Religious Right leaders. Peroutka writes:
Since civil government is ordained by God in order to protect God-given rights, then the function of civil government is to obey God and to enforce God’s law – PERIOD.
It is not the role of civil government to house, feed, clothe, educate or give heath care to…ANYBODY! (Or to operate a Panda-cam at the National Zoo.)
On a website promoting the Institute on the Constitution’s course, Peroutka says, “As American culture has moved away from the acknowledgment of God’s authority, and the desire for his blessing, American government has untethered itself from God’s requirement that it stay within its limited jurisdiction.” He argues that “When God’s law is ignored, chaos ensues.” Peroutka recently told right-wing radio host Steve Deece that “so-called civil rights laws” are not law because “there is no such thing as a civil right.” And he denounced the proposed Employment Non Discrimination Act as “federalizing perversion.”
Echoing a theme heard frequently at Religious Right events, Peroutka told rally participants they share the blame for the country’s problems because they have allowed “usurpers” who don’t have allegiance to his view of law and government to “rule over us.” He said, “We need to repent of these ways, these things that we have done. Because we have broken the law by allowing this to occur. We are responsible. We need to repent before God.”
Last year, the Human Rights Campaign noticed that Peroutka, a Maryland-based lawyer, was one of the biggest donors to the anti-marriage-equality effort in the state, and slammed his association with The League of the South. Peroutka denied that he is a white supremacist, but called himself a “proud member” of the group; in fact he is a board member. He was a featured speaker at the group’s conference last June, which was entitled, “Southern Independence: Antidote to Tyranny.” The group defines its mission this way: “The League of the South is a Southern Nationalist organization whose ultimate goal is a free and independent Southern republic.” Also:
We also encourage individuals and families to personally withdraw (secede) from the corrupt and corrupting influence of post-Christian culture in America. We call this "abjuring the realm," and it's a real and dramatic first step all of us can take by simply withdrawing our support of and allegiance to the corrupt government in Washington that through its greed, corruption and lack of Christian values has destroyed your children's and grand children's future.
Plenty of other speakers, including a couple of clergy, claimed God’s endorsement. Even W. Cleon Skausen, the late far-right Mormon conspiracy theorist, was invoked. Sheriff Richard Mack demonstrated a “political prayer” that he said Skausen had taught 250 law enforcement officers at a training session – a series of hand motions to go along with a recitation of the preamble to the Constitution. Skausen, also a member of the Council on National Policy, was popularized by Glenn Beck’s promotion of his book The 5000 Year Leap as divinely inspired. The Southern Poverty Law Center describes the book as “an illustrated recipe for turning the United States into 50 little theocracies.”
Klayman himself wasn’t shy about invoking God’s blessing on his revolution:
“Our strength comes from God. We take orders only from him. We don’t take orders from Hussein over there. We take orders from our God, not his. So consequently we are moving forward and we look for your support and your help.” He ended his remarks by saying, “and most important of all, we have God on our side.”
Among the speakers at Larry Klayman’s rally in Washington was Brooke McGowan, a Tea Party activist from North Carolina. She had also spoken at the “We the People” rally on Veteran’s Day. McGowan, who was introduced as a representative of the Tea Party News Network, devoted her remarks to the need for national repentance, declaring that “we are in dire trouble today in America. We are a nation under judgment.” Among the reasons McGowan cited were abortion, religious pluralism, and church-state separation:
“In this nation we have turned away from the God of the Bible, and we’ve told Him He’s simply not welcome here. We have welcomed pluralism, atheism, secular humanism, Wicca, and even Islam, but we’ve told the Holy God to stay away. Legally, we removed God from the public schools over 50 years ago, and then 40 years ago through a court of nine justices, though not unanimous, we determined that His very image, precious life in the womb, could now be legally torn apart, killed, and discarded. Legalized murder began our rapid moral downfall....Now, how can we expect as a nation to stay blessed or even prosper when we willingly stay under this curse?”
McGowan cited the theories of Jonathan Cahn, whose book The Harbinger and movie Isaiah 9:10 Judgment argue that America is experiencing the end-times wrath of God in ways that were foretold in the Old Testament. According to Cahn, the 9/11 attacks were a wake-up call from God, but America didn’t repent, so the 2008 financial crisis was sent our way, but still we as a nation have not repented. If we don’t repent now, we’re looking at a military takeover in 2015.
McGowan pushed right-wing “war on Christianity” themes and a couple of false myths meant to prove it. “Today there is a cold war on Christianity, a civil war,” McGowan said. “Will we repent? How far does it have to go before we give in to His call for repentance?”
“At Walter Reed hospital down the road where our broken and mangled servicemen and women lie, you can’t even speak the name of Jesus or take in a Bible,” she said. “This is a disgrace!”
Actually, it’s a lie.
After his White House rally of “millions” of Tea Party activists flopped, Larry Klayman took to WorldNetDaily on Friday to declare victory, likening the conservatives who “massed in front of the White House” to the founding fathers, Moses and Jesus Christ.
Klayman also blasted the “slanderous” coverage from “the self-anointed Rev. Al Sharpton and MSNBC, aided by the equally degenerate People for the American Way,” which he calls an “atheist socialist organization” that “dedicates itself to the destruction of the tea party and conservatives in general.”
Despite the “smears,” Klayman claims he has “the support of our Creator.”
Last Tuesday, the Reclaim America Now Coalition, true to our word, massed in front of the White House in Lafayette Park and delivered a Declaration of Independence demanding that President Barack Hussein Obama either address and remedy the grievances of the people or resign. We gave him until the day after this Thanksgiving to comply, as a host of activists and patriots made known their views that he had violated his oath of office and committed treason.
A video of all of the speeches at this “Day of Reckoning” kicking off the Second American Revolution will soon be available on our website, YouTube and other media, including WND.
Immediately following our demonstration and declaration, predictably, the self-anointed Rev. Al Sharpton and MSNBC, aided by the equally degenerate People for the American Way – an atheist socialist organization which, through publications like its “Right Wing Watch,” dedicates itself to the destruction of the tea party and conservatives in general – broadcast a slanderous piece that tried to tie Sen. Ted Cruz and our Reclaim America Now Coalition and the tea party, branding us all racists, and otherwise defaming our intentions and character – and, for good measure, gleefully claiming that we are dragging down the Republican Party.
While we are nonpartisan and have criticized Republicans for their inaction and lack of resolve in truly taking on Obama on several occasions, including at this rally, Sharpton and his ultra-leftist cronies, like MSNBC’s Richard Wolffe, who appeared on the demagogue’s broadcast, used the occasion to try to destroy our reputations. They obviously fear the force of our message and planned nonviolent actions and want to kill the messenger.
However, Sharpton and Wolffe and People for the American Way are not unique. Such hateful groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center have attempted to smear fellow conservatives and people of faith, including me, many times in the past and undoubtedly will step it up in the future as the heat in the kitchen grows hotter for Obama to resign or be removed from office through legal means.
Neither yours truly nor other members of our ever-growing coalition will be deterred by these actions of the far left, no more than other revolutionaries in past U.S. history were. Indeed, our Founding Fathers – Washington, Franklin, Adams, Jefferson and others – were attacked similarly not just by King George III and his British crown, but by colonial Tories. And, while I do not equate myself to Jesus Christ or Moses, so too were these true revolutionaries, one of which is the Son of God and the other a messenger and agent. They were called every name in the book in unsuccessful attempts to destroy them, and I am not talking about the Bible.
We the People will not be deterred in our revolution to free the nation from the corrupt establishment class that has driven the country into the ground, of which Obama sits atop as the current president, no matter how we are smeared and threatened and no matter how the left and their allies in the media and elsewhere try to destroy us all.
So we must act alone, with the support of our Creator. As it declares in the Declaration of Independence, which we read to the crowd Tuesday, “A prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of free people. … And for support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
It’s time for the people to rise up and to this end, the Reclaim America Now Coalition will announce soon the date that it will reconvene in Philadelphia to hold a Second Continental Congress and plot the future of the peaceful revolution. Stay tuned.
Earlier this month, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah wrote that “millions of tea-party activists are just waiting, like me, for an invitation to come to Washington to show the world some Americans still care about the principles upon which the nation was founded.” He got his wish with Larry Klayman’s event where, Klayman said, “millions” would “occupy Washington D.C.” for a “Second American Revolution.” Farah even spoke at the rally.
Of course, the rally was a complete bust. Only around one hundred Tea Party activists showed up, far from the millions Klayman predicted would “occupy parks, sidewalks, public areas” until Obama resigned or was forced out of office.
But Farah was so inspired by the tiny rally that he believes it will launch a new anti-Obama movement, lamenting that the media refuses to cover the “growing undercurrent of rebellion.” In a column this week, he describes the gathering as an event where “hundreds rallied near the White House to make the case for what amounts to a second American revolution through a show of force by the American people.”
“There’s a growing recognition that America is nearing the point of no return,” Farah writes.
Nobody is yet daring to address it in what is euphemistically called “the mainstream media,” but there’s a strong and growing undercurrent of rebellion among some of the most accomplished retired military brass in the nation.
Yesterday, retired Maj. General Paul E. Vallely made his most passionate and forceful case for the “forced resignations” of Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the top leadership in Congress from both parties for policies he says are “destroying America.”
He’s calling for massive demonstrations in the streets like the kind that brought down the government of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt.
“We are in a war for America,” he told WND.
And he’s not alone in making such dire observations.
Of particular concern to the generals – including Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, a founder of the Army’s elite Delta Force, and Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Patrick Henry Brady – is what appears to be a purge of the top officer class in the U.S. military characterized by some as part of an all-out attack on America’s armed forces.
Yesterday, for the first time, hundreds rallied near the White House to make the case for what amounts to a second American revolution through a show of force by the American people.
Among the speakers at that rally was former Rep. Bob Barr who holds a unique role in American history. He was the very first member of Congress to call for the impeachment of Bill Clinton. It came at a time when the idea of impeachment was considered preposterous by the ruling class and the media. Yet, it came to pass within a relatively short period of time. Today, dozens of members of Congress are already on the record as supporting the impeachment of Barack Obama for high crimes and misdemeanors.
Those crimes have been well chronicled in the book “Impeachable Offenses” by New York Times best-selling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott, published earlier this year.
There’s a growing recognition that America is nearing the point of no return – a historic moment of critical mass, the threshold, the boiling point.
It’s all part of a conscious betrayal of the principles upon which America was founded. The only thing that can stop it is a massive outpouring of strength and force by the remnant of Americans who will dare, as America’s founders did, to sacrifice their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to preserve and restore liberty, morality and common sense no matter the cost.
It’s time to decide whether you will sit back and watch the American Dream pass quietly into the night or if you will stand up boldly and courageously in response to the clarion calls for an uprising.
It’s time. The hour is late. Get mobilized. Be ready.
America may not get another chance.
Even though the millions of people that Larry Klayman confidently predicted would attend his anti-Obama gathering yesterday never showed up, at least one speaker thought the event, which attracted well under one hundred people, would have historical significance.
Addressing the rally — which called for a coup to oust President Obama and a “Second American Revolution” — former GOP congressman Bob Barr demanded the House of Representatives consider impeaching the president. Barr, who played a major role in President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is running for Congress again and has called for investigations into whether Obama should also face impeachment.
After calling Obama a “scoundrel,” Barr said that the poorly attended rally would be remembered throughout US history as the day the campaign to remove Obama from office was started: “Be it remembered that it started here today, November 19, 2013, just as it did on November 5, 1997, that Americans for generations to come will look back and say, ‘yes, good and faithful servants, you did your duty.’ We thank you and we will carry that torch forever into the future.”
Naturally, his speech ended with a Tea Party activist shouting: “Except Barack Hussein Obama is not the president, he’s a fraud; kick the bum out!”
One of the speakers at Larry Klayman’s rally launching the Second American Revolution was Belinda Bee, a coordinator of 2 Million Bikers to DC. The group initially came together in protest of a 9-11 event called Million American March Against Fear (which some dubbed the Million Muslim March). At the time the biker group was denied a permit to protest, which Bee told Fox News was part of a “political agenda.” In the end, thousands of bikers did roll through Washington that day. At Klayman’s rally, Bee expressed contempt for President Obama – she referred to him as “whatever it is in office over there” – and for the federal government. “We are homeland security. We are our own government. The government does not tell us what to do. We’re supposed to tell them.”
By teaming up with Klayman and his call for Americans to overthrow the current government and start over, the biker group seems to have expanded its vision far beyond an annual 9-11 protest. Bee’s remarks were heavily focused on America’s relationship with God, and she seemed to call for abandoning every constitutional amendment after the first ten:
Our mission statement starts off with: We at 2 Million Bikers to DC do believe in God, Country, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights – as written. That means there should not be change. We don’t care about all of those Bill of Rights that came after the original. We want to go back to our Founding Fathers’ views and beliefs. We are one nation under God, and without God, we are not America. I’m gonna tell you right now, the first thing that I hear somebody talk about is ‘I have freedom from religion.’ No sir that’s not what it says, it says freedom of religion. Do not preach to me about this not being a God country. It was founded on God. They came over here and left to come here to be able to have the freedom to be a Christian, and to have the God that we have, that brought this country together, that this country was created after.
Bee may want to think through her position: getting rid of all those later amendments and returning to the vision of the founders would not only make slavery legal and abolish women’s right to vote, it would also allow President Obama to run for a third term.
Bee also targeted the supposed threat of Sharia law and churches that accept “perversion” – presumably homosexuality.
You know what, y’all? I want to explain something. This is no longer about Democrat. This is no longer about Republican. This is about getting rid of those who are trying to enslave us. This is about getting rid of those who are trying to push their Sharia law on us. Let me tell you something. [audience: “Christian blood in this earth!”] That’s it. We are God’s people and if we don’t get our own churches to stand up and quit submitting and talking about, it’s ok for us to be different. Perversion is perversion and per the Bible it is not acceptable in God’s eyes. And we’ve got to quit letting others tell us it’s ok. It’s not. … And who are we? We are God fearing Americans. We are homeland security, and we’re taking our country back.
Bee and a colleague said the group is launching political organizations in every state, will mount a major campaign in 2014, and is preparing to launch a social networking site that will be based outside the United States and therefore beyond the prying eyes of the NSA.
Last night on PoliticsNation, Rev. Al Sharpton highlighted Larry Klayman’s rally at the White House, which was billed as an attempt to overthrow President Obama.
Sharpton featured Right Wing Watch footage of the event, including rants from Klayman, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah, birther sheriff Richard Mack and a George Washington impersonator, with speaker after speaker calling not only for the House to impeach Obama but also for a second American Revolution.
Sharpton noted that Ted Cruz, who joined Klayman at an event last month at which Klayman called for an uprising against the president, has also been floating impeachment rhetoric.
“Ted Cruz has flirted with these fringe elements all the way through,” MSNBC’s Richard Wolffe told Sharpton.
The GOP’s shift to the far-right fringe — led in part by Cruz — has gone so far that the party is now refusing to even let the Senate vote on President Obama’s judicial and executive branch nominees.
Sharpton added that Republicans “are trying to nullify the fact” that Obama won re-election by refusing to let the president fill empty seats in the executive branch and on the courts . “We have never seen anything like this where you are just nullifying the powers of the president to nominate people to the courts, people to the administration, this is unprecedented,” Sharpton said.
Larry Klayman predicted that his rally calling for the overthrow of President Obama would draw “millions to occupy Washington D.C.” and that those millions would “occupy parks, sidewalks, public areas” until the president leaves office. In the end, no more than a hundred people showed up for today’s big event.
Nevertheless, Klayman told Tea Party activists that he is still confident that the Reclaim American Now rally will force the president to resign and that grateful Americans will beseech Klayman and his allies to organize a new Continental Congress in Philadelphia.
Below are some of our favorite pictures from the revolution.
1. The millions descend...
2. But don't worry they are "not racists."
3. Stop Obama's Sharia!
4. Yes, yes that is a Confederate flag hat.
5. Judgment is
6. "George Washington" reads the new Declaration of Independence from Obama.
7. Larry Klayman addresses the masses.
8. "God is behind Larry Klayman."
10. They are just asking the question!
Larry Klayman is so confident that his “second American Revolution” will be successful that he has already planned a second Continental Congress to organize a new system of government. Klayman will lead a rally in front of the White House tomorrow, where he predicts that people will “converge on and ‘Occupy Washington’ in the millions” and that they won’t leave the city until President Obama resigns or the military forcibly removes him from office.
Writing in WorldNetDaily, Klayman predicts that “the tyrant evil fool in the White House” will “retire to his favorite golf course in Tehran” after Klayman’s Reclaim America Now putsch. Then the event will move to Philadelphia, where “delegates of the tea party and other patriots from all 50 states will deliberate, plan for the rest of the revolution and elect a government in waiting, ethically and competently poised to take over the reigns [sic] of a real government responsive to the people.”
Take our Reclaim America Coalition, for instance, which is proving to be a big success. For virtually the first time in modern history, we have assembled a host of conservative, libertarian and other public-interest groups and activists to work together for a common goal: to wage a Second American Revolution and peacefully and ultimately remove the tyrant evil fool in the White House, as well as corrupt Republican leaders like Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. This coalition is unique; for years I had been trying to get these groups and activists to work together, but ego and other cynical calculations got in the way. Now that the country is hanging by a thread, in the words of our great Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, we all realize that if we do not all hang together, we will hang separately under the oppressive and dangerous rule of our government leaders, of which Obama is the snake’s head.
Beginning at 10 a.m., Nov. 19, in the park just across from the White House, Lafayette Park (it is befitting of this French general who helped us whip Britain to gain our independence) that We the People, armed with courage and moral rectitude, as well as the divine grace of our Creator, will begin to fight back against government tyranny. We will not only serve notice that we will no longer endure tyranny from the corrupt leaders who have driven the nation to near destruction, by reading our renewed declaration of independence, but we will speak the truth about what needs to be done to right the ship of state for ourselves, our loved ones and to preserve the freedoms our Founding Fathers and their patriotic hordes fought and died for.
Coupled with this will be the masses who are being called to Washington for this non-violent uprising; we will serve testament to the onlooking nation and world that the people are in charge, not the likes of Obama and Boehner. If wise, the Mullah in Chief ultimately will retire to his favorite golf course in Tehran and the half-sober House speaker to his tanning salon in Georgetown.
Then, when our Reclaim America Now Coalition fires the first peaceful shots at “Lexington and Concord,” we will reconvene some weeks later in Philadelphia, at the City Tavern, which once accommodated the first Continental Congress, the one that gave us the original Declaration of Independence at Constitution Hall. There, delegates of the tea party and other patriots from all 50 states will deliberate, plan for the rest of the revolution and elect a government in waiting, ethically and competently poised to take over the reigns [sic] of a real government responsive to the people.
The Second American Revolution will succeed, because We the People will have the courage to make it so. And, to this end, I command you to join our forces, come to Washington, D.C., Nov. 19, 2013, attend the start of our Second American Revolution and make your voice heard. The time has come for action. The time is over for talk. Let us put both Obama and Democratic and Republican leaders out to pasture, where they can wallow in the manure they have encased us with, and let us reclaim our own destiny free from their political slime, incompetence and tyranny, so help us God!
Larry Klayman paid a visit yesterday to Alex Jones’s radio show to invite the conspiracy theorist to his upcoming Washington, D.C. rally calling for a coup against President Obama. Jones was, to say the least, enthusiastic.
“The Obama gang really, fundamentally hates America and hates freedom,” Jones said, criticizing the Obama administration as “crony capitalist kleptocrats” who want to “socialize” the US by using “the communist model to take over.”
“Even I cannot believe how evil Obama and his supporters are,” Jones said.
Klayman told Jones that participants in his rally will issue a new Declaration of Independence “because if you read the Declaration of Independence it is exactly identical to the situation we have today.” “We have to rise up,” Klayman continued. “We will succeed in the end but we need to show force.”
Larry Klayman promoted his upcoming rally to overthrow President Obama during an appearance on talk show host Jeff Crouere’s radio show, where he said that “Obama is evil and he is destroying this country.”
Repeating his call for an Egyptian-style revolt, Klayman said that “impeachment doesn’t work” and only a coup can depose Obama.
Klayman: After we peacefully and non-violently get rid of Obama and some of these other leaders, we’re going to need to regroup and we’re going to need to think things through — perhaps another constitutional convention — but we have to take care of business first. We have got to get rid of this guy. He’s evil, Obama is evil and he is destroying this country.
Crouere: Is impeachment a possibility through Congress?
Klayman: It doesn’t work. We’ve never impeached and convicted any president in our history, that’s another reason for a constitutional convention; we need another way to get rid of presidents peacefully and legally. Impeachment doesn’t work. We’ve never done it. The only time presidents have left office is when they’ve been forced to resign and that’s why we need to go to Washington and make our point. They see the masses in Washington like what happened in Egypt a few months ago with the Muslim Brotherhood president Morsi, who Obama by the way supported and still supports.
Update: Molly Redden of Mother Jones reports that despite Klayman’s claim, Franks’s office says the congressman will not be attending the rally.
Franks and Klayman will be joined by right-wing leaders such as Larry Pratt, Bob Barr, Pamela Geller, Alan Keyes, Bradlee Dean, Joseph Farah and Zeeda Andrews, who believes President Obama might actually be Osama bin Laden :
Among speakers scheduled, according to the Web posting, are Alan Keyes of Declaration Alliance, Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs, Floyd Brown of Western Center for Journalism, Joseph Farah of WND, Joe Kaufman of Americans Against Hate, Klayman, Bradlee Dean of Sons of Liberty, Vincent Forras of Gear Up Foundation, Belinda Bee of 2 Million Bikers to D.C., Zeeda Andrews of Ride for the Constitution and Larry Ward of Constitutional Rights PAC.
Klayman told WND that Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., former Republican congressman Bob Barr and Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America also are scheduled to attend.
According to the Reclaim America Now website, groups such as Accuracy In Media, GrassTopsUSA, Gun Owners of America, Pacific Justice Institute and several Tea Party organizations are cosponsoring the rally.
He issued a new Declaration of Independence to promote the rally:
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these States; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the current president of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world and a list of demands that require resolution.
- The National Security Agency's (NSA) over-broad and unconstitutional spying on American citizens needs to be curtailed and limited to those who are legitimately related to terrorism, terrorist acts, or those who are or could be linked to breaches of national security.
- The rules of engagement, which favor Muslim jihadists, must be changed in order to preserve the lives of American military units.
- The attempt at socializing the United States of America by enacting the unconstitutional health care plan Obamacare must be blocked, and Obamacare as it stands must be repealed.
- The current administration must agree to significantly lower taxes for all U.S. citizens.
- The Internal Revenue Service must be abolished entirely leaving in place only a reasonable consumption or flat tax.
- Immigration reform is critical to our nation's survival. We must seal the borders and not allow any illegal immigrants into the country. We must come up with a plan that does not involve amnesty.
- The budget deficit must be significantly reduced.
- The president must submit himself to examination and appear in front of a citizens' grand jury to answer questions under oath regarding his illegal, treasonous and impeachable actions during his presidency.
- The president must provide a physical, original copy of his birth certificate to We the People and submit himself to the scrutiny of qualified forensic experts.
- The United States must not push for a Palestinian State on the West Bank.
- The United States must support the Egyptian military and rid all Muslim Brotherhood ties.
- The United States of America must support Israel in a pre-emptive strike against the Islamic Republic of Iran to destroy its nuclear facilities.
- Pledge that our Second Amendment rights to bear arms will never be abridged and that our weapons of self-defense will never be confiscated.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury and blatant lies. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Now have We been wanting in attentions to our current president. We have warned him and his administration from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded him of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We the People, therefore, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these States, solemnly publish and declare, That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; free from the tyranny of President Barack Hussein Obama and his compromised and corrupt Democrat and Republican Party enablers in Congress and the courts, that they are Abolished from all Allegiance to the current government's regime, and that all political connection between them and the current government, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, We the People have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, We the People mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor to save our beloved nation and preserve the freedoms bequeathed to us by the Founding Fathers.
Larry Klayman is calling on “millions to occupy Washington D.C.” to “literally camp in Washington D.C. and not leave until we get results.” He writes in a brochure for the event [PDF] that the camp will be in front of the White House but will be so huge it will spread across the city: “In conjunction with the masses gathered in LaFayette Park [sic], we encourage millions to occupy parks, sidewalks, public areas.”
Klayman, who at a recent rally with Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin urged Tea Partiers to join his uprising, today in WorldNetDaily issues a list of Watergate-esque scandals supposedly imperiling the president.
The first on the list, of course, is the claim that President Obama was born in Kenya and is therefore not a “natural born citizen.” (We can’t wait for Klayman’s campaign against Canadian-born future presidential candidate Cruz.) Also included is the fact that war memorials were shut down when the GOP shut down the government and the shooting by Capitol Police of a woman who drove her car up against White House barricades.
Luckily for us, Klayman is writing a new Declaration of Independence to guide the nation after his successful anti-Obama coup. “I am preparing a new Declaration of Independence to present and ‘declare’ at the White House gates on Tuesday, Nov. 19,” Klayman writes. “I call upon all of you to join us on Nov. 19, 2013, to Reclaim American Now before it is too late and our nation collapses under the heavy weight of Obama’s long and growing train of abuses and usurpations.”
So it is too with Obama and his ultra-leftist government agents who have done all they can to dismantle the nation and remold it in his socialist concept of body politic, believing that We the People lack the focus or resolve, 237 years after our first Declaration of Independence, to again rise up and remove them. Consider these “Facts” requiring immediate action:
1. Obama is not a natural born citizen as required by the Constitution eligible to run for and be elected president of the United States. Having lied about his place of birth, which was likely Kenya and not within the borders of territories of the United States, and not having two parents who were American citizens at the time of his birth, he later, after years of demands by concerned citizens, produced on the White House website a fraudulent birth certificate to try to subterfuge his deceit. Despite election law complaints in various states to prove that Obama is not a natural born citizen, the courts, as has become the norm, have thus far turned a blind eye, obviously out of fear of the tyrant. Not one court has legitimately addressed the law, and We the People have been abandoned by our judges, who have generally become highly politicized and corrupt.
2. The growing list of what the tyrant calls his “phony scandals,” from Benghazi-gate, Navy SEAL-gate, IRS-gate, NSA-gate, to Fast and Furious-gate and now Obamacare-gate, has been swept under the carpet by Obama and his pliant and highly corrupt attorney general, Eric Holder. Congress, while holding hearings on these scandals, lacks the courage or will to seek justice and to impeach and convict Obama.
3. Obama and his minions continue to leak highly classified and damaging national security information, such as American cyber-warfare and U.S. Israeli war plans should Iran’s nuclear facilities need to be destroyed, as low-level whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning are burned at the legal stake. Obama and the likes of Hillary Clinton have damaged U.S. national security far worse than Snowden or Manning, yet they walk off scot-free.
4. Benefits to our military veterans and access to war memorials can be shut down under the guise of national debt issues, but Obama, members of Congress and other so-called government leaders continued to receive their “perks” without interruption.
5. The recent killing of a mother who, due to her postpartum depression, drove her car into the White House gates, was unnecessary and murderous, just as the Obama administration’s release of the identity of Navy SEAL Team VI following the killing of Osama bin Laden led to their death at the hands of the Taliban in a shoot-down of their helicopter on Aug. 6, 2011, in a raid called Extortion 17.
The long list of repeated injuries and usurpations is too long to put in this column, but I am preparing a new Declaration of Independence to present and “declare” at the White House gates on Tuesday, Nov. 19, when Obama’s resignation is demanded by the millions who we hope to have present that day.
I call upon all of you to join us on Nov. 19, 2013, to Reclaim American Now before it is too late and our nation collapses under the heavy weight of Obama’s long and growing train of abuses and usurpations.
