The Beating of War Drums

UPDATE 12/9/11

Brock has an update to this story here .  It would appear that all is being handled "in house" and the one who reported this states that he will speak no further of this matter.

It would seem that once again the beast has shown his teeth and put the fear of death or death of family in their hearts.

I just left both people involved with the incident that took place in the last few days. The soldiers do not want to pursue this matter any further, in any way shape or form. I was advised that the situation is being dealt with inhouse and there will be internal investigations into the conduct of certain ‘officers’ who started the poll and ordered certain persons held. The person allegedly being held was only there for a couple of hours.

No punishment will be handed down to any of the soldiers involved. I cannot give any further information as to names dates reasons units or places. This is in respect to my friends here. If this upsets anyone I am sorry but this is the way the soldiers want it. You have my deepest apology and I truly wish I had never spoken about any of this with my friends here on or FB. I will be posting no more information of this type due to the repercussions which could come from this.

The below if from Brock @ Free North CarolinaKerodin had a post about the similar thing that occurred 1994 about the US military being used to confiscate firearms.

With the passage of S. 1867 and now this from Indiana, things are taking a very dark hue.  It would appear that the PTB are beating the war drums against the American citizens.

From an old Alarm & Muster member from my area, Croatan District, NC
I have my ear to the ground and wanted to relay to you that:

National Guard troops in Southern Indiana were given a poll about bringing armed force against US Citizens if called to do so. A Spc laid his weapon on the deck and said he could not. The rest of the enlisted men followed suit. The Spc is now being held in the brig for his actions.

This is current out of the OathKeepers and in the process of being duly verified. Either way I wanted to shoot it your way as I know you like to relay that stuff far and wide. I'll try and give you better 5w's and H when and if it's verified.

I grabbed this from a gentleman of our Facebook page.

OUTSTANDING!! I just left my neighbors house. Devon is with the National Guard for this area. He just got home from a EDRE (emergency deployment readiness exercise) at the armory. He said that during the exercise 3 companies of infantry were polled by questionare about the drill and it's purpose. One of the questions was, will you as a member of the Nat. Guard use lethal force against the American public if ordered to do so? One of the men stepped forward and refused to take the poll and explained that it was a moral judgement on his part and that he could not do so. He then placed his weapon on the ground and fell in behind the formation. Devon said it was like a waterfall, Every member layed their weapons on the deck and fell in beside the one lone specialist. This included ALL NCO's, STAFF NCO's and SENIOR NCO's. The only people left in front of the original formation was 3 Capt's. 2 Lt's and the BN Commander who was so upset he started having chest pains from yelling and screaming about court martials and disbandment of the unit into other units. Devon is a Mstr.Sgt and he went with his troops and told them that he could not be prouder of any of them. He was floating while he was telling me this. Maybe we have more than just hope on our side. SEMPER FI. my thanks for the honor of being here Robert.

That first post was followed by a bunch of yeas from everyone happy to hear the good news. Next pertinent post:
I just heard from Devon. He was TX'd by his Plt LDR and advised that the Specialist Who first layed down his weapon is being held in county jail by the Bn CMDR, awaiting a hearing under the UCMJ. Devon couldn't get any more info than that. I don't want to post the mans name until we have more information. I am so upset by this that I am having chest pains. How can they do this to one soldier and not them all. I will let you know how things go. Think I might go lay down for a bit. SEMPER FI.

Nothing really pertinent other than those two posts and that the Oathkeepers Board of Directors are aware of the story in current form and efforts are now being taken to verify it. All the info right now is being gathered from a Facebook contact from someone on there. If I hear anything else I will surely let you know. If confirmed, a poll like this in conjunction with the NDAA bullshit that just passed makes it abundantly clear that offensive tyranny is coming down the pipe. Divide and conquer, division then desolation...looks like we are in for an interesting 2012.


Blogger < Jouranlist = No 1A

In Oregon, 1A has been trampled on by a US District judge.  It is his opinion that anyone that blogs is not a journalist and is therefore not protected under 1A.

All this because a blogger put out some damning, but true, details about someone and got sued.  Hopefully she and smarter heads will prevail in the appeal.

It seems the communist judge,  U.S. District Judge Marco A. Hernandez, was appointed by the illegal one now sitting in big seat.  It would appear that this could be a case of birds of a feather.....as he was born in Nogales, Az.

A U.S. District Court judge in Portland has drawn a line in the sand between "journalist" and "blogger." And for Crystal Cox, a woman on the latter end of that comparison, the distinction has cost her $2.5 million.
Speaking to Seattle Weekly, Cox says that the judgement could have impacts on bloggers everywhere.

the judge ruled that this single post was indeed defamatory because it was presented, essentially, as more factual in tone than her other posts, and therefore a reasonable person could conclude it was factual.

The judge in Cox's case, however, ruled that the woman did not qualify for shield-law protection not because of anything she wrote, but because she wasn't employed by an official media establishment.

From the opinion by U.S. District Judge Marco A. Hernandez:

. . . although defendant is a self-proclaimed "investigative blogger" and defines herself as "media," the record fails to show that she is affiliated with any newspaper, magazine, periodical, book, pamphlet, news service, wire service, news or feature syndicate, broadcast station or network, or cable television system. Thus, she is not entitled to the protections of the law

Cox tells Seattle Weekly that she plans to appeal the ruling by proving her assertion that Obsidian co-founder Kevin Padrick is guilty of bankruptcy fraud--a statement that, as Cox is quite proud of, is abundantly advertised if one simply Googles Padrick's name and sees the dozens of Cox's posts that spring up about him.
So there we have it.

A former veggie picker/dishwasher has drawn a line in the sand that anyone who blogs, is not covered under 1A.
