I Think it’s Probably “un-Christian” . . . .

to say, “God damn that lunch lady”.  I don’t really know enough facts about whatever actually happened, so I won’t say those words.   But I have to admit that that was my first reaction to this video.

Rising American Police State sees American People as Primary Enemy

It's not just a "radical" poster.  Obama in particular and government in general routinely violates the Constitution (the People's law).  As such, he is an "enemy" of the American people. [courtesy Google Images]

The principle enemy of the people of The United States of America is the government of the United States.  A lot of people would probably dismiss that opinion as crazy talk from the lunatic fringe.

But the adversarial relationship that exists between the American people and the American government is not the least bit unusual.  The primary enemy of the people of every nation is their own government.  Government seeks to convince that it’s “here to help us,” but it’s here to rule and exploit us.

Did Rome really fall to the barbarians?  Or did Rome fall to the Roman government’s excesses?

Was Italy ruined by the Allies in WWII?  Or was Italy actually destroyed by Mussolini and the Fascist Government?

How many Germans died in WWII?  Who reduced the nation of Germany to rubble–the Americans?  The Russians?  Or the Nazis?  Germany was destroyed by its own government.

Who destroyed the former Soviet Union?  The United States–or was it the Soviet Union’s government and its idiotic enforcement of the philosophy of communism?

Similarly, who’s responsible for bringing the USA to the edge of economic collapse changing the Land of the Free into a police state? Who’s responsible for the loss of our liberty, standard of living and the American Dream?

JFK Speech on Government Secrecy

Back in the 1960s, I was just a kid and I supported Barry Goldwater.  I didn’t think much of John F. Kennedy.  I didn’t have anything against him other than the fact that he was  Democrat and I was a Republican.  But, over the years, my appreciation for JFK’s speaking ability and for the quality of his speeches has only grown.

The first six minutes of the following video are of JFK speaking.  I find his speech inspirational.  Not every visual image that’s included on this video with JFK’s speech strikes me as reasonable or even appropriate–but the sound and content of the speech itself strike me as a magnificent declaration of American principles and as a prescient indictment of today’s “National Secrecy Agency”.

If JFK were still alive, I can imagine how he might cheer for today’s internet and the whistle-blowers.

The last five minutes of the video (after JFK finished his speech), don’t inspire me.  But, those last five minutes are at least interesting and relevant.

JFK wasn’t perfect but he was one of two presidents in my memory who may have actually given a damn about this country. Reagan was the other.  Both were shot.  The rest of our recent presidents have been nothing but slick-talking con-artists who didn’t give a damn about The United States of America.

Secular Humanism is a “Religion”

In A.D. 1961, the United States Supreme Court decided the case of Torcaso v Watkins.  The case hinged on the right of a man who had otherwise qualified for the office of Notary Public in “Maryland” to assume that office without first confessing (as required by the Maryland Constitution) that he believed in God. The man was an atheist and refused to falsely confess that he believed in God when, in fact, he did not.  More, he contended that the requirement for a confession of a belief in God was an unconstitutional “religious test”.

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the atheist as struck down the requirement that public officers had to affirm their belief in God as a prerequisite for holding public office.

The Torcaso case is probably most famous for a footnote which declares,

“Among religions in this country which do not teach what would generally be considered a belief in the existence of God are Buddhism, Taoism, Ethical Culture, Secular Humanism and others.”

With that footnote, the Supreme Court elevated “Secular Humanism” and other atheistic philosophies to the status of “religions“.

Snap, Crapple, Pop! Ricin Krispies!

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

I don’ want no “ricin krispies”!  (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The Washington Times reports,

“The FBI and U.S. Capitol police were investigating Wednesday letters addressed to Mr. Obama and to Sen. Roger Wicker, Mississippi Republican, that contained a “suspicious substance” that field-tested positive for the poison ricin. The letters were intercepted at off-site mail facilities, a Secret Service spokesman said.

“The letter to the White House arrived Tuesday. Authorities evacuated some Senate offices Wednesday as they investigated another report of a suspicious package.”


“With the nation on edge from deadly terrorist bombings in Boston and suspicious letters mailed to Washington officials, the White House said Wednesday it’s premature to speculate that America is under attack.

“Before we speculate, before we make connections that we don’t know exist, as the FBI has said, we need to get the facts,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney. “First things first.”

Mini-Seminar by Adask

Adask at Hells Canyon

Adask at the “gates” of Hell’s Canyon, Idaho

I was recently interviewed by Stephen Roberts on “Cancel the Cabal”.  During that video interview, I explored the concepts of sovereignty and the “sovereignty movement,” as well as potential applications of the 1st, 2nd and 9th Amendments, and “MOOA” (“man or other animals”) in relation to drug laws, the war on drugs, police state, big pharma, and American medicine.

The interview lasts almost two hours.  It’s too long to be an “interview,” but it might reasonably be described as a “mini-seminar”.  Most won’t have the time to listen to the entire presentation.  But it’s actually a pretty good general introduction to a number of concepts, so, if you’re inclined to listen, here’s the link:
