An Enemy of the State *
Promoting lawful Constitutional government
in these united States of America.

* The Interrobang (once made on a manual typewriter by typing an exclamation point over a question mark) indicates surprised outrage or outraged surprise. In this particular usage, it carries connotations of, "How DARE you "

Per the customary flag etiquette as codified in Title 4, United States Code Annotated, Sec. 8(a):
"The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property."
these flags fly inverted in recognition of the un-Constitutional 'dire distress' imposed upon the People of these united States of America by the unconscientious persons purporting to be the United States Government.

Happy/sappy, public-school-educated, television-addicted, totally brainwashed, liberal/progressive/socialists [whatever you may call yourselves] should probably go away now; this site will just make you uncomfortable. You might even have to start thinking.

Here is why the 'liberal' folks just won't 'get' it:

Quotes from the United States Supreme Court (boldface emphasis added):

In doing this, I shall have occasion incidently to evince, how true it is, that states and governments were made for man; and at the same time how true it is, that his creatures and servants have first deceived, next vilified, and at last oppressed their master and maker.
Justice Wilson [seriatim opinion], Chisholm v. Georgia (1793), 2 Dall. (2 U.S.) 419, 1 L.Ed 440, 455.

This nation, as experience has proved, cannot always remain at peace, and has no right to expect that it always will have wise and humane rulers, sincerely attached to the principles of the Constitution. Wicked men, ambitious of power, with hatred of liberty and contempt of law, may fill the place once occupied by Washington and Lincoln; and if this right is conceded, and the calamities of war again befall us, the dangers to human liberty are frightful to contemplate. ... For this, and other equally weighty reasons, they secured the inheritance they had fought to maintain, by incorporating in a written Constitution the safeguards which time had proven were essential to its preservation. Not one of these safeguards can the President or Congress or the Judiciary disturb, except the one concerning the writ of habeas corpus.
Ex Parte Milligan (1866), 71 U.S. 2, 18 L.Ed 281, 297.

"All systems of government suppose they are to be administered by men of common sense and common honesty. In our country, as all ultimately depends on the voice of the people, they have it in their power, and it is to be presumed they generally will choose men of this description: but if they will not, the case, to be sure, is without remedy. If they choose fools, they will have foolish laws. If they choose knaves, they will have knavish ones. But this can never be the case until they are generally fools or knaves themselves, which, thank God, is not likely ever to become the character of the American people." [Justice Iredell] (Fries's Case (CC) F Cas No 5126, supra.)
Ludecke v. Watkins (1948), 335 U.S. 160; 92 L.Ed 1881, 1890; 68 S.Ct. 1429.

Why such a webpage title?

My inspiration for the title of this webpage was a science fiction short-story ("Iron Angel", Don Hawthorne, 1988) about a future civil war in Russia. Here is my synopsis:
American military forces were infiltrated into Russia to assist the 'friendly' Russian forces during a Russian civil war. While the American troops are inside Russia, open conflict erupts and they need to get out.
With the 'friendly' Russian troops, they commandeer a Russian train and unsuccessfully attempt to exit Russia.
Within a year, they have abandoned their efforts to escape, have killed the roving 'bad guys', and have established a viable trade among the villages along the railline they have adopted and protected.
One day the 'friendly' Russian officer comes and tells the ranking American officer that the Russian 'authorities' are really upset: "They have declared you an 'Enemy of the State'," he says.
The American officer ponders this and finally answers, "An 'Enemy of the State', eh? Well ... for that, at least, I am grateful."
The story suggested to me that when trained and organized people caught within a rotten situation actually used their experience and training to protect themselves, to restore order, to establish trade to support themselves and to improve their quality of life; they got to be vilified by 'the Authorities' as 'Enemies of the State'.

The concept of an 'Enemy of the State' is a socialist/fascist conceit, based on two grossly false premises:
(1) 'The State', recognizing no other Diety, purports to be 'GOD' and demands mindless and unquestioning absolute loyalty and obedience from its subjects; and
(2) Anyone not automatically agreeing with 'The State' MUST be a 'criminal' and/or 'crazy,' and MUST also be committing 'blasphemy' against the self-evident 'GOD' State.

The reality is that no inherently-corrupt government, or religion, can long withstand objective observation or criticism:

Our Enemy, the State:

In America, subversive elements [whatever their self-proclaimed political affiliation] within 'the Government' have created their own problems by repeatedly ignoring, subverting, perverting, and violating the fundamental Laws of this Nation and the interests of 'We, the People'. So 'We, the People' can correct the trouble by returning 'The United States Government' to the limits lawfully established for it by The Constitution-as-written for these united States of America and by the Constitutions-as-written of the respective States.

With the above articles in mind, and considering the present general lack of moral and ethical character within 'The United States Government'; I too expect to be vilified as an 'Enemy of the State'. I can think of few higher honors bestowed by the self-righteous.

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America,
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Red Skelton's interpretation of the Pledge of Allegiance:

In elementary and high school, I said (and meant) the pledge on the flag hundreds of times, but I, subsequently, have not read in any statute which states that I should pledge any allegiance whatsoever to the subversive usurpation of these united States of America represented by the gold-fringed military Color / Standard / Ensign currently displayed in courtrooms, government offices, and some churches. I don't know what it MEANS; I don't think THEY know.

My friends sometimes say:

" [Oooooo] You're really anti-government, aren't you?"
Or, " [Oooooo] You're some kind of an anarchist or something, aren't you?"

So I tell them the truth:

"No; I am not 'anti-government', an 'anarchist', an 'extremist', a 'radical', nor any other derogatory/defamatory/slanderous/stupid label.
"I am, and have always considered myself to be, a loyal American.

"I have absolutely no problem with the legitimate, lawful Constitutional government of these united States of America. I, together with all the other honest People of these united States of America, AM the lawful government.
"As the political posterity of the Founders of this Nation, I have, from God by birthright, an undivided interest-in-common in this Nation [my interest-in-common divided-by the combined interest-in-common of each-and-every other member of this Republic].
"I just don't believe that our public servants [those supposedly elected or hired and PAID to work FOR me and us] feel, believe, understand, or have ANY concept that, by force of Law, they work for us; not for themselves, not for their families, not for their union(s), not for some foreign country, not for the U.N.O. I don't think they understand that without the Constitution and the Law in FULL force and effect, they have no lawful job.

"I have no patience with public servants who seem to claim a Right to annoy, harass, persecute, prosecute, and, perhaps, kill me or us, while fully expecting to be exempt from the very same Constitution(s), statute(s), and regulation(s) to which they demand that I and we unfailingly and unquestioningly conform.
"Nobody in his right mind takes insubordination/insolence/flack/abuse from his/her public servants. That is not lawful government, that is unlawful oppression and tyranny.

"I have no need or desire to live in Nazi Germany, fascist Italy, Communist Russia, or 'frantically-Terrorist-seeking' America!
"My duty to God and to my Nation is to prevent that from happening. 'Zero Tolerance' works both ways.

"Under lawful Constitutional government, if public servants misbehave, the lawful remedy is to discipline or fire them.
"Under lawful government, when public servants practice Subversion against us, the lawful remedy is to fire and jail them.
"Under lawful government, when public servants commit Treason against us, the lawful remedy is to hang them ... by the neck ... until dead ... with hemp rope.
"Maybe that is why we no longer have lawful Constitutional government (or hemp rope) in these united States of America."

Tom Clancy illustrates duty:

George Orwell dramatized subversion in his novel Animal Farm
(a scathing satire of the fascist/socialist/Communist 'State') thus:
"All animals are created equal, BUT some animals are more equal than others."

I bet you have met some of these self-styled 'more equal' subversives yourself: [Orwell's 'pigs' [= Attorneys], 'dogs' [= law enforcers], and worse, the 'sheep' [= bureau-rats] trying to be 'pigs' or 'dogs']. Don't you usually resent their 'rude' attitude? Don't you sense that, underneath, they hate you?

The Communists have said for years that their 'friends' are: other True Communists, Fellow Travelers, and Useful Idiots. It may occasionally be appropriate to ask oneself:

"Am I a True Communist? ... Why?"
"Do I benefit from being a Fellow Traveler with a True Communist?
"How do I benefit?
"Where are we going?
"Do I really want to go there?
"Am I being a Useful Idiot?
"Why would I want to be any kind of Idiot?"

It never hurts to know the enemy; so here, in the enemy's own words, is

The Communist Manifesto:

The Communist Manifesto as manifested in these united States of America:

The Basic Principles underlying our Constitutional Republic:

These united States of America were founded, and were intended to continue to function, NOT as a Democracy, but as a Representative Republic under a written Constitution based upon very definite classical principles. These principles, at the time of their adoption, were labeled 'extremist' and 'radical' because they diverged dramatically from the way the English government functioned [the people yelling 'extremist' and 'radical' the loudest at that time, were 'governing' and being 'governed' under English military rule].

The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution for these United States of America are still the ONLY lawful and legitimate foundation of our Republic. The only article of the Constitution which may ever be legitimately suspended is the writ of Habeas Corpus in times of invasion or insurrection.
The Constitution is NOT 'old,' 'time-worn,' 'outdated,' 'obsolete,' 'irrelevant,' 'nationalistic,' 'isolationist,' nor any other derogatory characterization.
Nor is it 'flexible', 'living', 'mutable', or 'interpretable' by any court.

The Constitution and all laws and treaties which conform with its limitations are the Law of the Land in this Nation

It is my (and your) God-given Right as a natural born, or naturalized, American.

Anyone who tells you differently is:
(1) Ignorant [does not know any better, but can learn if he/she will];
(2) Stupid [does not know any better and can't/won't/doesn't-want-to learn]; or
(3) Deceitful [knows better and is lying to you or trying to cheat you].

Lacking a firm understanding of the basic principles of this Constitutional Republic by each and every Citizen, we have become ignorant 'subjects', mis-educated and oppressively mis-governed by an un-principle-d 'United States Government'.

The origin of our Common Law is Magna Carta, The Great Charter won in 1215 A.D. from John, King of England by his own barons because he had abused his people and his authority so badly.

The English Petition of Right: (1628)

The English Declaration of Rights: (1689)
Enacted as the English Bill of Rights [1 William & Mary, Sess. 2, Ch. 2 (December, 1689)].

The Constitution did not appear in or from a vacuum.

The principles of Natural Law as expounded by John Locke (c. 1690 A.D.) were a major influence upon the founders of the Constitution.
John Locke's 'Second Treatise on Government':

Blackstone's Commentaries on the Law of England was a significant resource on the Common Law of England and known by most of the Founders.

The Northwest Ordinance (1787):

The Constitution for the United States of America (1791):

Both The Federalist Papers: and The Anti-Federalist Papers: are collections of articles urging or opposing the adoption of the new Constitution. They were intended to be read by the average literate and educated man of the time. The reader was expected to be familiar with and to understand the arguments, the references, the social context, and to agree/disagree strongly. American courts sometimes rely upon the Federalist Papers to determine what the original intent of the Constitution was.

[I suspect the Confederate States of America may have taken the position at their creation that, "This Constitution thing is just not working properly for us; we're going back to The Articles of Confederation." (Hence: Confederate States).]

Congress seriously overstepped itself after the States had adopted the new Constitution.

The only redeeming part of the coming civil chaos is that it will NOT be an 'Insurrection,' an 'Uprising,' a 'Revolt,' a 'Rebellion,' a 'Revolution,' nor even 'Terrorism'.
It is not an 'Terrorism,' when you fire your miscreant public servants.
It is not a 'Revolution,' when you swat a mosquito, yank up a weed, or kill a threatening rattlesnake.
It is not a 'Rebellion,' when you find your home infested with fleas, termites, ants, or ########### and hire an exterminator.
There is not a 'Uprising,' when you find you have cancer and undergo chemotherapy or surgery.
These are all various forms of self-defense and/or 'Pest Control'.
