The American Revolutionary War, or our war for independence from the oppression of the British that officially began in 1775 and birthed our nation, was a most pivotal time in our nation’s history. Many men and women of average means and intelligence rose to become celebrated heroes and heroines.
They placed everything on the line, from their families to their businesses to take up the cause of freedom to form the greatest nation in the world. In doing so, they risked their own freedom as well as their very lives. We can learn much from these wise and brave people, and owe much to their courageous actions and sacrifices. While many American heroes were created by their acts of total selflessness and fighting on behalf of all citizens of the American colonies, there were others who chose to sit out the fight… or worse.
One of the most villainous names in U.S. history is that of Benedict Arnold. So reviled were his traitorous actions that his name has become synonymous with betrayal. Once an important and very effective leader in the American cause, he turned his allegiance to the British at a most critical time in our war for independence. Some historians speculate that his betrayal against his own country originated by his hurt feelings that he was betrayed himself. Some accounts suggest that he felt personally slighted and unappreciated for the sacrifices he made and the battles he fought and won, during which his leg was badly injured, forcing him to walk with a limp for the rest of his life. Many historians suggest that he sustained a much deeper wound—a fatal wound to his pride that led him to turn against the noble fight for the freedoms and liberties for all Americans.
Today in America, there are an increasing number of men and women who see the ominous parallels between the pre-Revolutionary War days and the present day. Instead of an overt foreign enemy, we are facing a more insidious threat spoken of by not only some of the heroes of the Revolutionary War, but warned of by Communist insiders and defectors: the threat from within.
Only those buried deep in denial or their own normalcy bias refuse to see the increasing oppression against the citizens of America by their own government. Only those who are completely clueless or complicit cannot see or vociferously deny that the clouds on the horizon are not storm clouds, but the dust clouds of an approaching enemy selected and elected to retake our freedoms. Only those who have been effectively brainwashed believe that those currently in power reflect the true will of the people. History, it appears, is about to repeat itself as the overreach and aggression of an out-of-control government is ramping up their attacks against our God given freedoms and rights as enumerated in our Constitution.
Today, we are in the midst of a propaganda war where the contemporaries of our pre-Revolutionary history, the true American patriots who hold the principles upon which this nation was founded near and dear, have been openly identified as enemies of the leaders of our nation. There is no ambiguity in the statements or intent of those leading our country. There is only their resolve, where they are unified in their objectives to subjugate us to their royal ambitions at the expense of our rights and freedoms.
We, as the contemporaries of our forefathers, are now the domestic terrorists. We have been declared the enemy, in speech and in writing, and there is a willing army forming at their hands to create two classes of people, those who are in power and those who are their subjects. Again, there is no ambiguity in their words and deeds.
If you do not—or choose not to— understand and call out the traitorous and seditious actions of those in power and their complicit media lapdogs, along with their resolve to use everything in their arsenal to marginalize and vilify the outspoken patriots who are fighting to stop further oppression while regaining lost ground, then you deserve what’s coming as that’s exactly what you’ve earned.
Just as no ambiguity exists in the statements made about and against true American patriots by our current oppressors, there must be no ambiguity or lack of resolve on our part. There cannot exist any gray area or middle ground, for it is just such compromise that has contributed to our current state of affairs. We must fight this propaganda war head on, and call out those who have betrayed us and are betraying us for reasons that range from complicity to pride, from promises of seats at their table to the assurances that they will live life unscathed by royal mandate. Whatever the reason, whatever the cause, there exist those who have turned against the greater objective of restoring and maintaining our freedoms by attacking those who are staying the course.
It is time that we must publicly choose the side for which we stand, be it for freedom as it was intended, or to be subjugated to the will of an elite ruling class who will decide what Constitutional rights we may retain that were won by the sweat and blood of our forefathers, for they are watching.
It is time that we must publicly question the motives of those once described as patriots in this fight for freedom and the future of our country, much like Benedict Arnold.
Recently, the American ruling class sent their foot soldiers to a small Nevada community named Bunkerville. It was there that the globalists dispatched a heavily armed contingent of federal agents and their mercenary supporters to face down a small group of patriots unwilling to be bystanders in an overt and aggressive overreach of power and control. The corporate media intentionally and with malice, mis-portrayed the intent of both sides and efficiently convoluted the true issues behind the stand-off. War and propaganda, however, are rarely simple in their public portrayal. When one side loses, however temporary the loss, they must exploit public opinion and perception to their favor. And that is exactly what is taking place today.
Although we know that the federal government will indeed return to Bunkerville, it will likely be with the orchestrated support of many Americans who have, or will have, fallen victim to the tactics of the enemies of freedom. Many have already acquiesced to the false narrative that demonizes not just Cliven Bundy, but those who actively support him in deeds and words. Despite their perceived intellectual prowess, they have either fallen for the lie, or worse, have already chosen their side.
It is with this spirit that I felt heartfelt sadness as I read and heard the words of self-proclaimed patriots and lovers of freedom such as Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media and Glenn Beck who, in this author’s opinion only, seem to be fueling the propaganda war by attacking those who are putting it all on the line for what is right and proper.
It is with great concern for every freedom loving patriot that I find myself questioning the true motives behind their Alinsky-style tactics of diverting the issue and marginalizing those who refuse to compromise our rights and freedoms that appear to be employed in this covert propaganda war. It is their ad hominem attacks against other fellow patriots, and their attempts to deceptively mischaracterize these messengers of freedom. Their shameful tactics are as transparent as those of the captured media speaking on behalf of the oppressors.
Will future historians write about Beck, Kincaid and others who appear to be turning against the very objectives they proclaim to promote much like what has been written about Benedict Arnold? Amid the white noise of diversion and orchestrated attempts to divide and conquer, I believe we must choose a side, right here and right now. We must choose the side of truth and righteousness, and shun those who want us to devolve into divisiveness and mire us in attacking our fellow patriots.
As we near an event, or events not of our choosing that will likely forever change the course of American history and the future of our families, our children and all future generations, the side we ultimately support will forever be recorded in the annals of history. It will determine whether our ancestors will visit our graves with deserved admiration or equally earned contempt.
It’s time to choose our side, not just for this battle, this war against our freedoms and the future of our country, but for the sake of the future generations. It is up to you whether your ancestors will walk across your gave without reverence to that of another who had the will, the courage, and the integrity to stand up for truth and the preservation of the rights bestowed upon us by Almighty God.
Choose now, or accept the future you have so rightly earned and deserved.

Thanks for your service, Little Eagle. You are a true Warrior Sir.
Just as Americans are now seeing thru obamas tactics and his threatening regulations, with his ratings
plummeting to lower than ever before, I can see the same for more and more citizens choosing our side.
They might not show up at the March but they will help in other ways. I have faith in America.
Thank you for your continued comments an observations.
I will see you in D.C. And I say, Don't let the govt. "Tread on Us"
In God We Trust
This is a copy of a post of mine on another thread. I would like to believe that there are only 2 sides, but,,,,,,,
I got an e-mail from VDA (USPU/OAS group) yesterday regarding the Bundy/BLM fiasco. I also got one from the OK folks. It seems that OK got bad intel from a source of theirs and acted on it in a very unbecoming way. That is NO excuse for VDA to stand around pissing in each others ears about shooting the OK's in the back for desertion. This OAS effort is hard enough to convince non-involved people to get on board without giving them a schoolyard pissing contest between OK & VDA to turn them away. I am a member of both USPU & OK. I do not agree with EVERYTHING that EITHER of them do. I know that in order to clean up our Country we need every last patriot for OAS REGARDLESS of the differences in each ones philosophy. Every VDA, OK and militia seems to have the same problem. Everybody thinks that they are better than the others. Is there any way that all of you can put aside the petty bickering? At least until OAS is over? It is going to be over before it is starts if you continue to alienate those you do not agree with 100%.
I have been able to get many to TALK about joining the movement by using the Bundy/BLM event as an instructional on why we need to have OAS and what can be accomplished when everybody pulls together. Now, they are seeing everybody pulling apart. THAT is also what I see when looking at the these 2 groups. If Veteran Defenders of America would truly like to sever ALL ties with OathKeepers, let me know and I will stop worrying about at least one of my many things that divide my attention and efforts.
Makes one wonder just what chance we have of EVER making a difference. Perhaps those of us who abhor this type of behavior would be better off just waiting until the war starts. At least then the line between the good guys and the bad guys may not be so blurred!
Good Luck to everyone. We're going to need it!
IT IS MY WISH THAT EVERY TRUE PATRIOT COULD READ THIS LETTER,IT GOES TO THE VERY HEART OF THE ISSUE.
THANK YOU MR.HAGMANN
The nay-sayers and cowards and liars are trying their best to defunct the American Spring. Don't let them! The American Spring is doing what some of us (older folks) cannot do though our hearts and prayers are with you. I pray nightly for your safety, and of course your success.
This is exactly why Hussain Obama has done his best to destroy our military, to dismantle it, to discourage it's presence here at home and around the world. He is evil and you are standing together for all of us who can't be there with you. Whatever the outcome, and I pray that your goals are met for America, but however it works out, you are ALL AMERICAN HEROES!! God Bless You - one and all.
I hope Obama reads this.
You have LOST this game. Your facade has been ripped away, and you are now exposed as the traitorous, lying Islam extremist you are. We do not wish to hurt anyone, however this is our stand, and if you do not comply, we cannot speak for every Patriot that wishes to see you and all of your cohorts hang.
I believe I speak for everyone when I say that we would rather you leave BEFORE OAS. Give yourselves up; you've been outplayed, outmatched and outgunned. it would be wise for you to turn yourselves in.
