Children and Siblings of Soldiers and Police Officers: Its Up To YOU

Alex Jones recently shared two important stories about police officers who are taking their duty to uphold the Constitution seriously.

One of the officers said that his brother had sent him videos and information about the threats to the Constitution and the need for law enforcement to protect the American people against those who would take away our liberty.

Because family members usually have more access than outsiders to members of their family, it is up to the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers and grandparents of everyone related to law enforcement or military service to remind them that they serve the American people and the Constitution, and not a particular political party or politician.

Of course, people in the same sports league, congregation, or other frequent social gathering place must also remind their "team mate" about their primary duty to protect the people, and not the powers-that-be.


  1. I agree that we must not wait for anyone else and that we MUST act or continue our catastrophic losses.

    “The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. Of the latter we are in most danger at present: Let us therefore be aware of it. Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity; and resolve to maintain the rights bequeath'd to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. — Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies, the necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that "if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom." It is a very serious consideration, which should deeply impress our minds, that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event.”
    - Samuel Adams, Essay, written under the pseudonym "Candidus," in The Boston Gazette (14 October 1771).

  2. bang on!!! Ive been on both sides of the fence as it were and was glad to have "civilian" friends to remind me of my duties to the people and not just the power structure. It's true to a certain extent the younger soldiers can develop a "fucking civvies" attitude, its not hard though when they come from a group with whom they share everything with and then when on "civy street" see people who screw each other over and have no cohesion or care for one another. Its only after being an old soldier that you realize that the civilian condition is a societal product rather than something that is inherent in non military people.
