New American Magazine:
Police and National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed Sunday by elements of a para-military right wing extremist faction.
Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.
Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist militia faction has citizens whohave links to the radical right wing tax protest movement.
Gage blamed the militia for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices.
The governor who described the group’s organizers as “terrorists” , issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the governments efforts to secure law and order.
The law enforcement team augmented by elements of the National Guard, were sent to raid a militia arsenal after widespread refusal of right wing extremists to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.
This decision followed a meeting in early July between government and law enforcement which authorized the confiscation of the illegal arms, known as the weapons of choice among criminals and militias.
One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out “that none of these people would have been killed had right wing extremist obeyed the law and turned over the weapons voluntarily” .
Police and government forces initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily armed militia extremist who had been
tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense stand-off in Lexington ‘s town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes.
The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right wing extremist.
Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.
Ironically, the local citizens blamed the government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths.
Before order could be restored, heavily armed militia groups from surrounding areas had descended upon the police and guard units.
Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by militia mobs, ordered a retreat.
Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order.
The governor has also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government.
Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist militia faction remain at large….
A Lesson in History: A clever re-labeling by government and media can change the entire public perception of almost any event. Someone labeled a “right-wing extremist” or “domestic terrorist” by governments and tyrants, may well be a historical patriotic hero in the light of reality… And a “military assault weapon” in 1775 could have been a single shot, muzzle-loading musket.
Here is the official “Snopes” report, which calls events of April 18, 1775 “False”.
You might want to drop them a note and remind them – (or perhaps inform them for the first time?) that our founders DID IN FACT rebel against tyranny and the events depicted above are all absolutely TRUE… they are just 239 years old.
This piece actually started out with an idea and a crude four-paragraph pass-along I wrote over 19 years ago. Excellent conservative writer Thomas Eddlem took the idea and made it into a great short article for publication in The New American magazine, edited by the staff there and published, nearly two decades ago. It lives on today, all over the web. My last search showed over 11 million hits. Thank God for that medium. Pass it on.
“Big Brother” has arrived…
“A system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.”
“During a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
Both of these quotes are taken from George Orwell’s novel “1984”; he was only about 25 years early on his prediction based on the 2008 election.
PRODUCERS: It’s time to become conservatives and constitutionalists or lose all.
Why all the fuss about Common Core? Isn’t it “just a set of standards?”
Let’s get you up to speed. Are you even aware that virulent leftists and statists are, and have for decades been effectively in charge of your state’s Dept. of Public Instruction, and the national education systems from Kindergarten to Ph.D. levels?
But we’re told ALL teachers and “educators” LOVE Common Core… and it’s true that all the Marxists among them probably do. But many teachers don’t, and many fear to even speak up.
Even the department names are misnomers in virtually every case… Or haven’t you paid attention to the decline of real education and the frantic purge of Christian and/or patriotic American thought from the schools? It’s pretty obvious.
Where are the leftists? Check out nearly any education organization leadership, college administration, department chair position, or union. One large district in my home state of Wisconsin polled their staff of hundreds and found just ONE registered Republican. Undoubtedly probably a “RINO.”
Take the NEA (National Education Association), where you can buy a copy of Obama’s favorite “how-to” manual, “Rules For Radicals” or “Rules for Revolution” by Saul Alinsky right on their web site.
The same NEA that promoted Ayers as a “visionary” and protected him again and again as he rose to the Chairmanship of a department at the University of Illinois in Chicago. This is also the Bill Ayers that has advocated a communist overthrow of America for nearly five decades.
Ayers and 400 of his Weather Underground friends met at a “war council” in Canada where they discussed the “re-education” of tens of millions of Americans in communist ideology AFTER the revolution. They then coldly discussed the various possible methods they might use in murdering the estimated 25 million Americans who they estimated “wouldn’t go along.”
Oh, and their “salute” at that time was a raised hand pointed upward with all four fingers extended… which they adopted after adopting twisted mass-murder-cultist Charles Manson and placing his picture on their newsletter… in honor of the carving fork that Mansons followers used to brutally murder 8 1/2 month pregnant actress Sharon Tate and several others.
Sound fantastic? Can’t believe it? Then listen to the testimony of the undercover agent who went inside this organization Ayers led, when they investigated Ayers and his group in 1970:
OH, yes, and it was in the living room of this same Bill Ayers, the former Weather Underground leader, wanna-be mass murderer, that Barack Obama’s Presidential aspirations were launched…
Wow, what a coincidence, hm?
Or, how about the AFT (American Federation of Teachers) which was run for 33 years by one Albert Shanker.
He just happens to be a founding member and poster-boy for the Young Socialist League… Shanker even appears as an advertisement of their clout in some of their flyers!
Oh, and Shanker just HAPPENED to walk right into the leading role at “Education Internationale” when he “retired” from the AFT. The group Bill Gates supports and touts as the “foundation of the future international education board.”
Where does the money come from for the construction of Common Core? Coincidentally, over $200 million came from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and like minded friends. More hundreds of millions from Gates are pouring into the advertising campaigns, and 161 of the organizations promoting Common Core out there coincidentally get 50-100% of their funding from Gates and his various leftist friends, through their tax exempt foundations. Wow, so MANY coincidences!
And even more BILLIONS in YOUR TAX DOLLARS, (adding to the ballooning federal debt) were doled out by the Dept. of Education on the sly, by who else? Obama, Bill Ayers bosom buddy. These funds were dangled in front of the state governments and used to promote Common Core far in advance of the roll-out under the “Race to the Top” program. This stealth operation by Obama was a shill to bribe the states into taking Common Core largely sight-unseen, as a CONDITION for the money.
These powerful forces are pushing a soon-to-be international-socialist education program. Common Core is just the beginning, under the same leadership and multinational corporate and government funding as Education Internationale and UNESCO/UNICEF.
Next up: The “Better Balanced Assessments” and other related, Common Core Standards based testing, forcing universal use of the CCSS to comply with the requirements of the tests. Step two, along with the “In-Bloom” data-mining system (step three), are all related and all trace their roots back to the international socialist crowd and the massive money from mega-corporate powers like Bill Gates.
Why? What’s in it for them?
It’s simple: Total world political and educational control, through a top down capture of education worldwide. It’s re-education really, like the Soviets did, like Hitler did, like all totalitarians do.
They do it BECAUSE they ARE leftist, One-Worlders. They think YOUR kids belong to THEM… and to “the world” – or World Government, they are building.
Wake up Americans, wake up NOW., wake up FAST, wake up FULLY, then GET UP and fight… before your children become the cannon fodder this cast of tyrants will use to enslave… or eliminate YOU.
Contrary to Obama and his purchase of education through the Federal Dept. of Education and “Race to the Top, contrary to Hillary’s “village”;
Contrary to Bill Gates and his partner the UN/UNESCO/UNICEF (whose motto, by the way, is: “Every Child is Our Child”);
Contrary to the “Learn Forward” chairman and MSNBC leftist anchor Mellissa Harris Perry (quote: “Children don’t belong to parents, to families, children belong to whole communities”);
And contrary to the so-called “Common Core State Standards,” these are NOT state standards and are NOT “rigorous.”
They are a “first salvo,” the initial part of an enormously well-funded, massively government empowered, and ultra-international-socialist plan to conquer through education, indoctrinating OUR children in THEIR politics and philosophy. How clever. How convenient. How chillingly Orwellian. And how SUCCESSFUL.
Concerned yet? You should be. Fight back. Clear your schools of Common Core and all it’s iterations and relatives.
