The Wool Over Your Eyes
by Mike Straw
Medal of Honor recipient and president, Theodore Roosevelt, who habitually carried a legal defensive firearm at all times proclaimed,
Your greatest enemies are those who would slyly deceive you: those who profess to “protect and serve,” who’ve publicly sworn an oath to “preserve, protect, and defend…” what?
Their bosses? Their municipalities? No. The magnificent Constitution, the highest law of the land.
Deception is a sordid lie. Liars, as is well documented, are all thieves.
The greatest theft is that of your most cherished possession, your precious life.
Do they truly believe us to be that gullible? Apparently.
The least among us still capable of exercising a modicum of logic will readily perceive the glaringly obvious fact that throughout the universe, at any time, it’s an immutable principal that action always beats reaction, as ably demonstrated by placing a common object on a table, easily accessible to both the subject and yourself, then invite the subject to put his hand a convenient distance above the object, say, about a foot away, then place your hand twice that distance, roughly two feet over the object, instructing the subject to keenly observe your hand, and when it moves, to instantly seize the object.
You’ll effortlessly snatch the object each time, because action always beats reaction.
Given this knowledge as a basis for argument, politely inquire of your local mercenary proxy-guardian “police,” “say, if I call you to come to my house for some problem, isn’t there always some kind of paperwork you fill out?”
Upon their wary affirmative reply, respectfully ask, “Where’s the check-off box that says, ‘prevented crime?’”
Copious embarrassed silence will ensue, because they all know the truth, too.
How long does it take the average mercenary proxy-guardian “policeman” to draw and fire their “government”-issued firearm?
On the average, about a second and a half.
How long does it take the average citizen to cross the length of the diagonal of an average large room, about twenty-one feet?
On the average, about a second and a half.
When dealing with the unwashed public, are mercenary proxy-guardian “policemen” ever twenty-one feet away when they interact?
Of course not: logic dictates that conversations take place at arm’s length.
Then, you may inquire, why the prominent display of a useless “government”-issued firearm?
Same as the dazzling lights atop the vehicles casually provided them with your extorted tax dollars: deterrence- psychological intimidation.
Those in elected positions of stewardship, mercenary proxy-guardian “police” chiefs, are deathly fearful of frivolous litigation and their subsequent loss of domination and eminence.
This is why, contrary to their own hard experience, they shamelessly demand their subjects “never resist- just give them what they want.”
What is it that mercenary proxy-guardian “police” most tremble in terror over? That you discover what they know.
Their elite training and experience, their very equipment is to be forbidden to their erstwhile masters, you.
Such equipment may be snatched from your law-abiding hands, but knowledge can’t be: their only recourse is your death.
They won’t hesitate: ask Gordon Kahl, Randy Weaver, David Koresh, and a burgeoning number of political prisoners, among them lion-hearted Rick Stanley.
If you took your obligation as a citizen of this once-great nation seriously, you’d obtain the same training and experience as those you blindly rely on to “defend” you- who know they have no such responsibility to provide.
In every state in the u. S., courts have unanimously ruled that mercenary proxy-guardian “police” have no duty to protect any individual, immediately or otherwise.
In the words of justice Casey Percell, “It is not the responsibility of… ‘government’ or the legal system to protect a citizen from himself.”
In DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services, the supreme court ruled that the Constitution doesn’t impose an obligation on state and local “governments” to defend innocent citizens from illegal harm, writing quite specifically: “Nothing in the Due Process Clause itself requires the State to protect the life, liberty and property of its citizens against [illegal] invasions by private actors.”
You want it in Los Angeles? Ne Casek v. City of Los Angeles, (1965).
In Chicago? Keane v. Chicago, (1968).
New York? Shernov v. New York Transit Authority, (1982).
A Federal Appeals Court declared as recently as 1982, “There is no Constitutional right to be protected by the state against being [illegally] murdered by criminals or madmen.”
Warren v. District of Columbia, a particularly brutal crime in which three female roommates were awakened by the noise of their back door being kicked in.
The woman innocently sleeping on the second floor was then brutally assaulted, raped, and sodomized by two threats.
Carolyn Warren frantically called nine-one-one, only to be illegally assaulted as well.
One of three landmark cases on the subject, the court in 1978 declared, “A ‘government” and its [armed] agents are under no general duty to provide…[mercenary proxy-guardian] ‘police’ protection, to any particular individual citizen.”
In California supreme court's recent unanimous decision in Zelig v. County of Los Angeles the court arrogantly proclaimed loudly and clearly: "It is well established that public entities generally are not liable for failing to protect individuals against crime. The public entities and their policymaking officers and employees are immune from liability for any failure on their part to provide sufficient [mercenary proxy-guardian] ‘police’ services."
Showing no sorrow or regret, the court admitted that extremist victim disarmament laws had unconstitutionally disarmed the victim: "the state, by enacting a[n unconstitutional] general statute prohibiting possession of a [legal defensive] firearm in any courthouse, curtailed her ability to arm herself in [justifiable immediate] self-defense."
Bottom line? “Government” can unconstitutionally disarm you, knowingly put you in deadly danger without so much as a warning, refuse and fail to protect you from the known danger... and then, smiling charmingly, get off scot-free when the threat then illegally harms or even maliciously kills you!
“Jim Grover” wisely observed, “I’m still waiting for some smart citizen to bring a [mercenary proxy-guardian] ‘police’ department to court for having the logo ‘to protect and serve’ on its car doors after they have been [illegally] victimized. It is a misnomer, a joke on us. They cannot protect us. The ‘serve’ should be expanded to read, ‘to serve the public by [merely] taking reports after the crime has been committed.’”
America began as a nation where selfless sheepdogs vigilantly guarded each other from occasional vicious predatory wolves.
Somehow, it’s now deteriorated into a nightmare where countless wolves are guarded instead by mere frightened sheep!
Ninety-eight percent of the populace is such sheer mindless, cowering sheep: dull, docile creatures that can only harm each other by accident and whose sole pathetic defense mechanism is denial.
Wolves don’t fear stupid sheep with legal defensive weapons because they know they don’t have the mindset or proper training to effectively employ them, and only hope that the wolf isn’t cunning enough to discern it, else the wolf will simply seize the useless tool and employ it against the disheartened sheep.
There’s no such thing as an “attack sheep.”
No fellow sheep will ever come to your rescue, possessing neither the tools, training, nor desire.
One percent of the population is predatory wolves, which happily prey on powerless sheep, unconcerned at their harrowing plight.
Wolves hunt in packs. Do you know why? If not, you’re already a very inviting victim.
No matter how massive the intended prey, by naturally incorporating the principle of multiple threats, the pack creates a disparity of force by way of sheer numbers and will easily overwhelm a healthy, strong lone victim.
The pack also uses the advantage of determining the place and moment of the assault at their greatest advantage.
Sheep exist solely as food for such bloodthirsty predators because they don’t choose to think -and plan -like predators because they lack the fearsome tools, razor-sharp fangs, and knifelike claws, needed to defend themselves.
One percent of the population are by nature valiant sheepdogs that, although they possess both piercing fangs and slashing claws like a wolf, would never harm sheep and in fact, steadfastly protect them, longing for a just battle.
The wolf, a born predator, while he thoroughly understands the nature of sheep, will never be one of them.
Can you answer this question about sheep? Why does the cowardly sheep fear the courageous sheepdog?
Answer: Sheep can’t tell the difference between a wolf and a sheepdog; admittedly, both are canines.
In their blind ignorance, they focus only on the fearsome tools, razor-sharp fangs and knifelike claws, which they irrationally fear must be used against them, and so become terrified, neglecting the inherent desires of the diverse species.
Simple sheep, which can’t comprehend canine ways, are therefore afraid of all canines.
Only the brave sheepdog, who understands the predatory ways of wolves, but who refuses to become one, and who also understands the frightened nature of sheep, but won’t become one of them either, will consistently act for the benefit of sheep and the just destruction of wolves.
Long ago, Aristotle stated the defensive disadvantage bestowed upon man by nature.
In “Parts of Animals,” he observed that "the structure of Man is... worse than that of any other animal," he being "barefoot, unclothed, and void of any weapon of force."
Instinct and genetics endow animals with the practical means to defend against threats in nature.
History, experience, and a superior mind do likewise for Man, except his threats far exceed those of the natural world; he has despotic “government” trying to de-claw, dehorn, and disarm him.
For Man to succumb to tyranny without a fight would be a violation of his nature.
It boils down to this: if they won’t trust you, their master, with the means to immediately justly protect yourself and your beloved family, they can’t be trusted to protect you.
Benjamin Franklin said, “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Doctor Robert Peck, author of “People of the Lie: The hope for healing human evil,” defines evil as “that force, residing either inside or outside of human beings, that seeks to kill life or liveliness.”
Andrew Delbanco, author of “The Death of Satan,” describes it this way: “Evil is best understood as privation, as the absence of an appreciation for the goodness of the world and for the full humanity of all the creatures in the world."
Robert Ressler advises, "There's murder and there's murder. You just have evil incentive and evil tendencies. I've had the feeling in interviews with these people that there's something beyond what we can comprehend."
Philosophers, theologians, psychologists, and even biologists have all grappled with the notion of the irredeemable person.
There's no end to the number of ways we can portray evil acts among human beings in this world, from genocide to torture to racism to sadism, some people just develop a badness that inspires them to act out.
We want to think of them as "different" so we can reassure ourselves that they're monsters and that such monstrosity would never arise out of normal people, yet it does.
Americans have lost their sense of evil, and we’ve become tolerant of the many forms of evil in our midst.
It's increasingly obvious, yet we’ve lost a vocabulary for discussing it, and our explanations for evil have never been weaker.
The unending cases of hatred, brutality, and wanton callousness make it clear that there are people who intend us great harm, and we must ever be alert.
Predatory criminals never see themselves as being evil; twisting their motivations in their own minds to blame someone, anyone, everyone else.
In the insightful words of philosopher Friederich Nietzsche, “Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And, when you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you.”
This explains the catastrophic shortcoming in the expedient but tragically flawed concept of mercenary proxy-guardian “police,” and the brilliant strength of unorganized Militia: each time dutiful a mercenary proxy-guardian “policeman” confronts monstrous evil, a little more inexorably rubs off on him, poisoning his soul, hastening the inevitable self-destructive spiral from soaring idealism: “because I want to help people,” confident he alone can solve all humanity’s problems, to coarse reality: “just to survive,” fearfully discovering that not only can’t he even make a dent in crime, he can’t even solve his own problems, to despondent apathy: “looking out for number one,” simply attempting to make it through one more shift alive, to hopeless burnout: “I just don’t care,” actually hoping some merciful bad guy will do him in.
Why else is it that so many of them choose suicide -typically with the very firearm issued to them by an uncaring “government” -rather than continue to face a future they’ve come to view as unchangeable?
In the words of Founder James Madison "Oppressors can tyrannize only when they achieve a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed populace."
And we’re waiting for…?
