THOSE of us who have some familiarity with the discipline of philosophy (more than likely) recognize the philosophical “forefathers”. Their dialectical forms.
IN reality, within the discourse of “modern philosophy”, the front-runner is Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, aka (shortened to) Hegel. A scary dude, that is, if you recognize what his dialectic has construed; shaping (rather misshaping) the relationship between the “state and its citizens”. Yes, by extrapolation from his philosophical theories, whatever outcome(s) leaders seek to impose, well, becomes the art of the doable.
ONE such “gem” was coined the “negation of the negation”. In effect, a “done deal”, before citizens even realize what’s happening around/to them. Though the above can be construed (or misconstrued) as an elemental explanation, this site’s sophisticated readership will glean its meaning and intent.
READERS may (rightfully) wonder: has this investigative journalist lost her mind, bringing up a long-deceased philosopher – albeit a rock star in his own milieu – in relationship to today’s subject matter, patriots in the cross hairs? Nope, brains are still intact.
HOWEVER, to internalize how/why so much chaos in America is erupting, as well as the bold-faced, shameless manner in which Obama Inc. (Demsters and RINOS) thumb their noses at the majority’s wishes, a paradigm shift must evolve. Most significantly – and through a dispassionate lens – one must view seemingly chaotic world events through a non-obstructed prism. Afterwards, step outside the imposed (through many subliminal tactics and messagings) dialectic and gauge who benefits most. Hint: it ain’t American patriots, nor others who seek freedom throughout the west.
THAT being said, think of all the domestic upheavals, in particular, the most intense racial incitement since the 1960’s, and ask yourselves: who are the main players? similarly, who accrues the benefits? Then, segue over to the leadership’s (on both sides) profligate (taxpayer) spending sprees and relate it to the erosion of Constitutional rights via Obamacare, illegal amnesty, gun control edicts and every brazen scandal in between.
AT the same time, the Muslim Brotherhood is deeply ensconced in the White House et al; Islamic domestic terror is deemed “workplace violence”; ISIS is found inside the borders, and Barack HUSSEIN Obama is signing off on thousands of Muslim refugees, but denying the same refuge to Christians…and so on.
TO what end? It is a (purposeful) witch’s brew for national disaster, and its roots are sown through domestic chaos. In turn, the chaos is aided by knock-on effects from Islamic terror. All of the above is orchestrated with Obama Inc., in tandem with other partners. The “transformation” of America, as promised, by Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
IN this regard, stealthily, slowly and without many the wiser, the aforementioned relationship between the “state and its citizens” is “transformed”. In essence, how many won’t be relieved when the sh-t hits the fan, only to witness the leadership swoop in with a “safety” net and promises to alleviate the suffering? This includes both mental anxiety/turmoil and the actual upheaval on the streets. Precisely. Evil sociopaths.
BACK to the Sheriff’s juicy tidbits….
NOW, how worrisome (and perplexing) is it to realize that America’s policing agencies have become increasingly militarized? At the same time, what’s up with the inexplicable (billion plus) shopping sprees by DHS, almost as if they know that a domestic war is on tap, and that unprecedented amounts of hardware (and bullets) must be at the ready? Not only that, but who recalls another promise from the Dictator-in-Chief, to create a “civilian force” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt2yGzHfy7s) comparable to the military? Again, what for?
WELL, a particular Sheriff (and others) spilled the beans, thus, warning the citizens what is coming their way.
A video posted to YouTube Saturday shows what appears to be a Washington state deputy sheriff explaining that armored vehicles are needed by police departments to confront “Constitutionalists” with firearms. According to Infowars’ Mikael Thalen, the footage was shot in Spokane Valley, Washington, a community that sits between Spokane and the Idaho state line.
Thalen said a local resident asked two deputies why vehicles designed for combat in places like Iraq and Afghanistan would be needed. The deputy responded by saying there are “a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition.”
“They have weapons here locally,” the deputy added. Thalen said the shocking admission indicates that law-abiding gun owners who support the Constitution are under surveillance by local authorities and it solidifies concerns by many that conservatives are being targeted by law enforcement agencies.
Thalen said the talking points are not that surprising, given that the department has received training from the Southern Poverty Law Center, a liberal organization that has declared Christian organizations “hate groups” for opposing gay marriage. State Rep. Matt Shea, a Republican who represents Spokane Valley, was clearly appalled with the footage, Thalen said.
“Will law abiding citizens who love the Constitution and Rule of Law be hunted down with MRAPs?” he asked. “Constitutionalism is fundamental to being an American. To hate the Constitution and those who support it means you are a traitor to this country.”
“This is spitting in the face of all those heroes that fought, bled, and died so we might live free,” he added. “The question should be, why aren’t you a Constitutionalist? Why don’t you believe in the rule of law? Why don’t you believe that the Constitution means what it says?”
This is not the first time such an admission has been made by law enforcement officers, Thalen said. Last May, a Morgan County, Indiana, police sergeant told Fox 59 his department received an armored vehicle in part, to deal with returning veterans the Homeland Security Department deemed a threat in 2009.
“When I first started we really didn’t have the violence that we see today,” Sgt. Dan Downing of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department said. “The weaponry is totally different now that it was in the beginning of my career, plus, you have a lot of people who are coming out of the military that have the ability and knowledge to build IEDs and to defeat law enforcement techniques.” Downing went on to say the vehicle was not part of an effort to take guns from law-abiding Americans.
“We were actually approached when we’d stop to get fuel by people wanting to know why we needed this…what were we going to use it for? ‘Are you coming to take our guns away?’” he added. “To come and take away their firearms…that absolutely is not the reason why we go this vehicle. We got this vehicle because of the need and because of increased violence that we have been facing over the last few years…I’ll be the last person to come and take anybody’s guns.”
Concord, New Hampshire, Police Chief John Duval also requested an armored vehicle to deal with Occupiers and libertarians he reportedly claimed posed a domestic terror threat. He backed down after the request was made known to the public, Mother Jones said.
“The State of New Hampshire’s experience with terrorism slants primarily towards the domestic type,” Duval’s filing read. “We are fortunate that our State has not been victimized from a mass casualty event from an international terrorism strike however on the domestic front, the threat is real and here. Groups such as the Sovereign Citizens, Free Staters and Occupy New Hampshire are active and present daily challenges.”
Thalen said that despite a drop in the deaths of police officers and gun crime in general over the last 20 years, agencies “continue to adopt military tactics in order to fight anything that represents traditional America.” Fortunately, he added, officers who still respect their oath and the Constitution still serve throughout the country. Video of the comment can be seen above.
AT the same time, what other outcome can Americans expect, when Obama and surrogates are decidedly partial toward anti-American regimes? But don’t forget the left’s (and their enforcers) tricks of the trade, when legal gun ownership is spun around and turned upside its head, as soon as questions are asked by ordinary citizens or outside journalists. Basically, it is as if those who “cling” to the Constitution (aka “bitter clingers”) are the threat, not those who shred it! Classic disinformation.
IN the main, average folks have a hard time internalizing that their leaders are, for the most part, operating off a prescribed playbook. This is far from a conspiracy theory. The facts are there, you just have to know how to thread them together.
TO wit, step outside the prescribed dialectic, Hegel (and Obama Inc.) be damned!
