Are you concerned about the conditions found within the borders of the United States of America? Are you concerned about any actions by our federal government? Do you worry about a possible war against your fellow Americans?
Doug Hagmann believes Americans are headed for another war with fellow Americans. It appears that history does seem to repeat itself if we do not learn from the past, and we may be seeing a repeat at this time. A military operation is scheduled for this summer in the Western states, and Hagmann believes it looks “eerily similar” to the conditions leading up to the first American Revolution.
“Concurrent with the captive corporate media’s feeding frenzy vilifying patriots and other citizens concerned about Jade Helm 15 by calling them conspiracy fanatics, government officials in various cities, counties and municipalities are welcoming American troops to their towns with open arms, apparently having no clue of the event that precipitated the American Revolution. These local officials are intellectually hobbled and history-deficient, for if they cracked open a history book, they would understand that throwing down a welcome mat for troops in their towns is an invitation to eventual bloodshed.
“Nobody, it seems, has raised any Constitutional objections about this operation against the backdrop of the Third Amendment of the Bill of Rights. I’ve yet to hear any politician, local, state or municipal governing body or political pundit discuss the implications of this `exercise’ in the historical context of the American Revolution and the Bill of Rights.
“To be clear, the Third Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads as follows: `No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.’
“So what does this have to do with the upcoming Jade Helm operation and in a larger sense, the use of American troops on the streets of America? Or, even more broadly, the militarization of our police forces?”
Hagmann continued his article by quoting and referring to the Rise of the Warrior Cop by Radley Balko. “As Balko outlines in exquisite detail, our Founders had a much deeper concern than housing American soldiers, especially when our national defense is at stake from a foreign enemy. `At the time the Third Amendment was ratified, the images and memories of British Troops in Boston and other cities were still fresh, and the clashes with colonists that drew the country into war still evoked strong emotions. What we might call the “Symbolic Third Amendment” wasn’t just a prohibition on peace time quartering, but a more robust expression of the threat that standing armies pose to free societies. It represented a long-standing, deeply ingrained resistance to armies patrolling American streets and policing American communities.’  [Emphasis mine]. …
“While it is beyond the scope of this article to delve deep into the backdrop for the Third Amendment, a robust understanding of the laws and actions leading up to its ratification is absolutely essential to understand the events taking place in present day America. It is critical to note that the principles behind Jade Helm 15, as well as the hybrid militarization of our police contain the very components that led to the first American Revolution.”
What do you think? Are our leaders leading us into a second revolution? Will our own military and police officers fight against their fellow Americans? How do you feel about “true American patriots” being “systematically and incrementally redefined as terrorists and enemies of the state”? How do you feel about the police forces in your city and state becoming militarized?
“Much like the events that precipitated the first American Revolution, we are bearing witness to an orchestrated tyrannical takedown of our civil liberties. Yet instead of understanding and discussing the potential and arguably intended subjugation of those who disagree with the politics of American royalty and their objectives for complete enslavement over we, the people, we are seeing nothing more than sophomoric discourse by those who are intellectually bankrupt, naïve, or complicit.”
