New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- People such as the new Governor of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin, are turning things around for the State—finally—and for the better and Virginians are better for it. The State begins its return to sanity. And the Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, demonstrates how a State and Country should work. The formula is simple. Government must take heed:
Place faith in and accede to the American citizenry. Recognize the Americans’ inherent sovereignty over the Government. Refrain from castigating, cajoling, controlling, threatening, and demoralizing them.
Consider for a moment what would have befallen Virginia if the imbecilic and obsequious stooge Terry McAuliffe had defeated Youngkin in 2021 and what would have befallen Florida if the Neo-Marxist toady Andrew Gillum had defeated DeSantis in 2018.
And consider a healthy, prosperous, and safe New York for a pleasant change. That would come to pass if Lee Zeldin is elected New York Governor during the mid-term elections of November 2022, displacing a Soros-sponsored Neo-Marxist puppet such as, e.g., Kathy Hochul.
Juxtapose the two antithetical different visions for America.
One vision holds true to a free Republic as bequeathed to the American citizenry through the AMERICAN REVOLUTION OF 1776.
The other vision seeks unabashedly to overturn the American Revolution through an unstated but very real Neo-Marxist Counterrevolution of the 21st Century—one that has been well underway since the dawn of the new Century, apart from a temporary lull during the Trump tenure in Office.
What frightens the Deep State Globalists is not a belief that Republican leadership in Virginia and Florida would fail. No! It is that they would succeed—are succeeding—too well! And the public is taking notice, everywhere.
Consider how California would have turned the corner from the economic, social, and political horror that pervades it, had a majority of Californians had the courage to unseat the stooge, Gavin Newsome, and elect Larry Elder. But, habits die hard. No one in California can sensibly believe that Gavin Newsome has done such a wonderful job. [Rigged Voting? We will save that for another day.] His contempt for the citizenry is evident, painfully so.
The crime problem, illicit drug problem, and homeless problem, in particular, are way out of control. Californians had a chance during the Recall effort to chase Newsome out of Office. But, having been thoroughly habituated to the empty posturing and moralizing of Democrats, they reverted to form. Apparently, they would rather accept a life of continual anxiety, strife, and fear than allow themselves to conceive that they need not resign themselves to a life of desperation. And so the slow dissolution of California continues unabated.
It is uncanny how so many Californian Americans consistently see that the politicians they continuously vote into Office work against the American peoples’ own best interests, and yet they continue to vote these same horrible creatures with their dismal records, into Office: Governor Gavin Newsome; Oakland Mayor, Libby Schaaf; San Francisco Mayor, London Breed; Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti; Los Angeles District Attorney, George Gascón; San Francisco District Attorney, Chesa Boudin—to name a few of the prominent elected officials remaking the State into a Neo-Marxist hell-hole.
And The Neo-Marxist Counterrevolution continues its march to reverse The American Revolution Of 1776—at least in several cities and states around the Country.
The Neo-Marxist Counterrevolution is at the moment, at least, fortunately, a non-shooting war.
That can change. But, if it comes, it will be commenced by the toadies of the Neo-Marxists and Neoliberal Globalist puppet-masters, not by American Patriots. Are the would-be destroyers already preparing for this? See the article posted on January 14, 2022, on BlabberBuzz, titled, “Military Prepping its Commandoes for Civil War.” The very idea of this is probably grounded less on concern that America’s Patriots would actually commence taking up arms en masse against the out-of-control Federal Government than it is based on the fervent hope that America’s Patriots would do so.
This would be in line with the Government’s milking of the January 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol “riot.” The Government hopes to bait the American citizenry into open confrontation. The Government would use that as a pretext to declare martial law, claiming a serious state of emergency. And that would result in an order immediately suspending the exercise of all fundamental rights, notably and especially the right codified in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Government would henceforth order the public to surrender all their firearms forthwith, on pain of immediate arrest and detention for failure to comply.
Consider: “In April 1967, Greece’s [a modern western democratic nation-state] new military government declared martial law, imprisoned citizens for their political views, dissolved political parties, and instituted widespread censorship, while suspending civil rights protected under the Greek Constitution.” “The Earth Alliance Constitution: International Human Rights Law And Babylon,”10 Fl. Coastal L. Rev. 33, Fall 2008, by Roy Balleste, Assistant Professor of law and Director of the Law Library at the David A. Clarke School of Law, University of the District of Columbia, Washington, D.C.
But that couldn’t happen here, in the United States, or could it? But hasn’t it, in fact, already commenced, albeit in drips and drabs, slowly but methodically, and seemingly innocuously with the censoring of speech by the major social media and technology companies, sympathetic with the aims of Neo-Marxism/Neoliberal Globalism or otherwise cajoled into acting, consistent with Government dictates and wishes?
Do we not see Government creating programs and new department agencies that specifically target Americans whose views do not cohere to that of the Deep State Globalist game plan. But, what would justify the circumstances for outright suspension of all fundamental rights and a formal declaration of martial law——
- A legitimate Federal Government justifiably fearing domestic terrorism of American citizen insurgents and thereby operating on the perceived need to protect a free Republic from being overthrown by domestic insurgents? Or,
- A decidedly, incorrigibly illegitimate, rogue Federal Government i.e., a tyrannical Government, intent on persevering itself against a popular uprising of tens of millions of concerned Americans who, realizing the dire need to topple a rogue Government to secure and preserve a free Constitutional Republic takes up arms against that Government?
This raises the tantalizing question as to whether a charge of Treason—Treachery to the Citizenry—can apply to a rogue Government itself? See, e.g., the Arbalest Quarrel article, posted on October 1, 2021, titled, “If Tyranny is Treason, Only a Well-Armed Citizenry Can Effectively Resist It and Has the Duty To Do So.”
Contrary to our supposition, scholars universally, or almost universally, maintain, that the crime of “treason” can only apply to individuals, not to the Federal Government itself, never to the Federal Government. But, if that is true, then citizens’ revolt against a tyrannical government cannot be justified in law, even if it can, under some moral/ethical theories (e.g., normative deontological theories) be justified. But, if rebellion against tyranny of Government is, at best, under our Constitution, only ever justified on moral grounds, but not on legal grounds, then the underlying legal imperative for the Second Amendment loses its impetus, i.e., “the right” of the people to revolt against tyranny.
In fact, several Anti-Second Amendment legal scholars make this very point. They argue that the purport of the Second Amendment as an individual right of the citizenry to keep tyranny of Government in check is self-defeating and therefore deeply flawed. These scholars claim that the framers of the Constitution could not have intended for the Second Amendment to serve as a legal basis for dismantling the Federal Government, apart from whatever purely moral basis may happen to exist for doing so.
Thus, taking this idea to its logical and morbid conclusion, this means that even if the Federal Government were to devolve into outright tyranny—usurping the sovereignty of the American people, followed by systematically subjugating them, clearly incurring the peoples’ wrath—the Second Amendment does not invite the people to resist that tyranny under any legal theory, whatever the moral imperative there is to do so.
Unfortunately, this jurisprudential, philosophical problem is not relegated to mere academic contemplation. The Executive Branch of the Federal Government, under Joe Biden, its titular head—a corrupt, incompetent, debilitated, and demented buffoon—and the Legislative Branch under the control of the equally corrupt and treacherous Pelosi-Schumer tag team, have imposed tyranny on the American people. They really make no pretense of this, and openly defy the public’s justifiable acrimony.
Something to ponder!

I know most of you have not watched an illegitimate government ruin a beautiful country I have lived through it twice so yes being the messenger of what is necessary to stop disaster is not pretty I lived in Venezuela and Cambodia, Thailand is bouncing on edge let them take your rights and end up in a ditch or fight and maybe live on
New Zealand seems to be getting pretty close.
Australia is going back and forth they have groups of people beat up police police putting people in internment camps they took guns from the masses and crime went through the roof
Treason is committed by the people in government, not by the government itself. Should biden commit such treason, the citizens would be relieved of any duty to comply, and would have an obligation to oppose and overcome the criminal biden.

Why are comments held? Ridiculous. If the gov suspends the Constitution for martial law, it thereby nullifies the contract bw the people and we no longer consent to give any power to the gov. The gov suspends its authority by suspending the Constitution.
and we would have to kill them all or as many as you could concrete over air shafts for bunkers shoot stragglers
a government here that tries to declare martial law has just declared their illegitimacy and would become targets of parts of military and civilian groups so that would precipitate a civil war
Correct. Suspending the Constitution would mean suspending the contract by which we granted power to the government. The federal government ceases to have any authority one heartbeat later.
Short and to the point: The only authority that the American form of government has is derived from the “consent of the governed”, and the only way that “consent of the governed” is maintained is via the CONTRACTS known as the U.S. and State Constitutions. If / when our governments break those contracts and/or otherwise refuse to be constrained by them, and if constitutionally sound solutions cannot be successfully implemented, then We The People must ultimately withdraw our “consent of the governed” and look to solutions as per the Declaration of Independence. That is our duty and our right as… Read more »
“American Culture Is Grounded In Freedom ~ Won & Maintained By Citizen Owned Guns”
THAT’S WHY THEIR TOP PRIORITY IS TO DISARM AMERICAN CITIZENS OF THE FIREARMS THAT EMPOWER THEIR CAPABILITY TO DEFEND THEIR FREEDOMS!
Outlawing semi-automatic AR15 type rifles and standard full capacity magazines is NOT a “reasonable compromise” – IT IS THE ENDGAME!
It is the difference between an effectively armed citizenry that possesses the capability to defend it’s freedoms – and a citizenry restricted by law to low capacity sporting arms that NO LONGER possesses the capability to defend it’s freedoms!
I kept reading, and hearing how we’ll be saved by the right people in government. I’ll tell you, the state is a disease that cannot be cured just by putting conservatives into office. The only cure for what’s wrong, the only hope for this country is God. The downfall started when that short fat ugly woman was able to get prayer out of schools, and now that there is same sex marriage, and abortion on demand, not to mention transvestites, and all other kinds of perversions rampant in this world. I truly believe the Lord is punishing us for not… Read more »
Courts have recognized for hundreds of years the 2nd protects our right to defend ourselves from tyranny.
“the arms the right to keep which is secured are such as are usually employed in civilized warfare, and that constitute the ordinary military equipment. If the citizens have these arms in their hands, they are prepared in the best possible manner to repel any encroachments upon their rights by those in authority.” Aymette v. State, 21 Tenn 154 (1840)
It is funny to think these legal scholars, with all their “education”, do not understand that everything in the Constitution was written with the intent to dismantle the government if it devolved into Tyranny. That it exists solely at the pleasure and utility of the people it represents. Smart monarchs hundreds of years ago understood that even they ruled only if the population allowed it. The Constitution as an entire document being a contract simply stating that the people will form and allow an organization to represent us if certain responsibilities are maintained as well as specific limitations are respected.… Read more »
Even courts way back knew the 2nd prohibited government infringement to guard against tyranny… “The free men may keep arms to protect the public liberty, to keep in awe those who are in power, and to maintain the supremacy of the laws and the constitution…. As the object for which the right to keep and bear arms is secured is of a general and public nature, to be exercised by the people in a body, for their common defence, so the arms the right to keep which is secured are such as are usually employed in civilized warfare, and that… Read more »
The deep state fears no one as the democrats will do anything say anything lie about all things, to stay in power. Roger points out the federal government is a arm of we the people who has gone rogue. It went rogue under President Bush and has been on a downhill slide ever since.
