Constitutional Emergency

Here is the link to a discussion on the Atlanta Tea Party Patriot website. I wanted to share this with those of you in Rhode Island. You can view the comments to my original post below at:

Beginning in earnest in September of 2008 I began a campaign of letter writing to elected United States Representatives, Senators, and the White House under both President Bush and now President Obama. The tone of my correspondence has been that of a citizen who is fed up with the government for spending money we do not have, at a time when we are experiencing economic deflation, and taking control of private business, where I believe it is in violation of the constitutional rights of business owners, shareholders, and frankly every citizen of this country. Ask the Bank of America shareholders today if their rights were violated when the government forced BACs CEO to purchase Merrill Lynch for $15 billion more than its' value. I wasn't aware of the facts at that time, but I knew government had no right to enter into the making of business decisions for shareholders, with or without full disclosure.

I have further stated my intent to exercise any and all of my rights as a citizen to do everything in my power to see that any elected official who refuses to govern according to the constitution, and who refuses to act in an official capacity according to the wishes, beliefs, and demands of the public be removed from public office. I have also voiced my opinion that career politicians are the antithesis of the views of the framers, and called for single term limits of any elected office. In no way did I ever suggest anything other than our constitutional rights as citizens to control our government's actions.

Yesterday, as a result of one of my letters, I was paid a visit by the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the FBI. One Senator, Sheldon Whitehouse, reported to the FBI that he felt I was endangering the government and should be investigated as a suspected terrorist. This after every single one my letters was sent through the official website of the government, and contained all of my personally identifying information and was specifically stated as advising each U. S. Senator that I was offering political opinion about pending legislation, or governmental policy.

Apparently, as this left leaning Congress assaults our rights on a daily basis, they are now resorting to reporting dissenters to their policies to the FBI, under the guise of terrorist threats. Since when did expressing a p0litical opinion, or disagreeing with the passage of Socialist bills in the legislature become terrorist in nature? I have specifically objected vehemently to the TARP, TALC, Economic Recovery Act, Omnibus Spending Bill, President Obama's 3.6 trillion dollar budget, cap and trade, and every other anti capitalist bill put forth in the 111th Congress.

The FBI agent was very polite and respectful. He explained why I had been targeted and by whom, Senator Whitehouse, and assured me that this would be the end of it. I explained to him in answer to his questions what and why I had written. He agreed that I have the constitutional right to express my dissatisfaction with government policy. The last thing he said to me was to advise that I keep expressing my opinions.

At first I wasn't too bothered, but really amused that a Senator would do such a thing. I immediately starting penning a new letter to the Honorable Senator, then left it to cool before pressing the submit button. Over the course of the next few hours, the realization of the intent of the Senator's action, and the resulting wariness on my part to write anymore letters came rising up as rage that an elected representative in the United States of America would even dare do such a thing. Is this where we are headed? Is this the Socialistic Fascism the current majority is pushing on the American people to be followed by not only political Fascism, but tyranny at the hands of our Federal law enforcement agencies at the direction of political hacks? Is this the last of it, or am I now identified somewhere as a terrorist threat to be watched?

By the way, my definition of Fascism is when the government controls private business, in very general terms. The connotation by some is much more cynical and perhaps it really should be. I share this here because many of you are writing the same letters. If you have also been targeted, or if you are in the future, we all have the need to know. Your responses are welcome.

Welcome to the rising number of us that are now domestic terrorist because of our love for America, support the Constitution, Republic principles, and honor our Founding Father wisdom.......

Socialism/fascism leading to communism is very much evident in political decisions in Washington, D.C......we have a responsibility to voice our opposition to government action, no matter which way our philosophy lands........we must not allow the Senator Sheldon Whitehouse crowd or any other politican tell us what we can think, say, write as long as America is governed by the US Consitution........the arrogance of a "representative" of the people reporting a citizen voicing an opinion is a further reflection of a politician with an authoritarian attitude...... Whithouse needs to be retired......better yet tarred and feathered........

It also calls for a letter to the editor explaining the mindless actions of a politician that should be honoring his constituents rather than trying to use the heavy hand of government to stem debate........just outrageous.......

God bless you for standing firm........
Having myself spent 35 years of serving my country as a Marine and as a Federal Civil Service employee working with and for the Congress, The Comptroller General of the United States, and finally as a Regional Inspector General for Audit, I have known the FBI as an agressive and vigorous protector of our freedoms by searching out and identifying dangerous citizens who have as their objectives the overthrow of our Republican form of Government. Having said this I also have known agents personally who would do exactly what their job requires and investigate what any Congressman and any Senator requests when such charges have been made. However, I have never known any FBI agent to agree that governmental power should be used against any citizen who voices their concerns about how their elected representatives fulfill their duties to the Constitution and to our people. And having said that, I proudly stand with you in condemnation not only of those Congressional representatives who have started down that road but any other branch of Government that would in fact take adverse actions against any citizen who exercises his Constitutional duties and rights. Indeed Sir, I fully agree with you that that Senator is not fit for his office and should be removed forthwith using every legal means possible including recall by his constituency. Were he in my state I certainly would urge my Governor to do just that and I would start petitions to make it happen. You are absolutely correct, there is only one way to help ensure that we do not continue down this very dangerous path and that is to enact term limits in every state and in the Congress of the United States. Also, we need to continue to remind all Americans in our spheres of influence that if it can happen to you, it can happen to any of us and at any time. That is something that is not only undermining our freedoms but the very fabric of our Republic and it must be stopped forthwith. God Bless you sir, for you are not alone now and will not be in the future.
WELCOME indeed to the U.S.S.A. where we appoint judicial activists to S.C.O.T.U.S. who not only come from minority backgrounds and descent, but also self-avowed proponents of legislating public policy and proclivities to enact judicial tyranny from the bench. How much more fair and impartial can you get? It's a matter of ideology, not jurisprudence! This is exactly the new "change" we expected.

"It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country, and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive with the world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn." —George Washington, letter to the Legislature of Pennsylvania, September 5, 1789
If they call opposition terrorism then the congressman or women asking the FBI to investigate it are fascists. They want to force a change in behavior through law. When was it ever illegal to pay bonuses to executives of a company? When was it ever illegal to make a profit when you own, operate, or manage a business? What the FBI agent did was illegal and violated your right of freedom of speech. They fear opposition they, being the current Congress. The Media intentionally portrays the tea partiers as dangerous or as close minded people. But I have a message for this congress. BACK OFF!
"The FBI agent was very polite and respectful. He explained why I had been targeted and by whom, Senator Whitehouse, and assured me that this would be the end of it.

This FBI agent should be praised for giving the advice to keep expressing opinions. He obviously understands what's going on & is on America's side. In protesting all the corrupting powers we should remember to show appreciation for those like this agent.
Dear Sir,
I sincerely thank you for your tireless efforts, and congratulate you for your unflappable commitment. It seems you have caused a Federalist to overstep. Well done.

If you would be willing, I think that perhaps your local media may be of use in helping to shine a spotlight on the vermin that infests our legislatures. The idea that an elected official can willy nilly summon the FBI, or any other federal agency, for the purposes of coercion and intimidation of a private citizen is, in a word, Tyranny.

With that in mind, you might also be opening yourself up for further abuse. But if you want to pursue this further, you have my support. This kind of bullying behavior affects all of us. So please feel free to call upon me for anything.

Also, while the agent in question should, indeed, be praised, I would keep private the personal advice he gave to you, as it may well have been intended as such. Such advisement is likely not part of the "official company policy"" and you wouldn't want to inadvertently draw him into the line of fire, so to speak. But that is my opinion only.

“The patriot, like the Christian, must learn that to bear revilings and persecutions is a part of his duty; and in proportion as the trial is severe, firmness under it becomes more requisite and praiseworthy. It requires, indeed, self-command. But that will be fortified in proportion as the calls for its exercise are repeated."

--Thomas Jefferson to James Sullivan, 1805
i can't wait for those fed guys to come and visit me... pretty sad it is coming to this, but this should be a wake up call to all americans, this crape really happens... wake up people, get mad, join the cause!!!!
I saw this and got mad and mad I'll stay, but our sorry state we are in is a direct result of good men doing nothing. I believe those days are over and bandits like this senator days are numbered. I am sure I am on a watch list since my letter days began long ago. I had the displeasure of one of Maurice Hinchey's aides call me up and tell me I should cool it when I suggested that we revert to the days of Jefferson and they hangs traitors referring to the man who calls himself my congressional representative. As a owner of a conservative minded weekly newspaper in NYS I soon found myself out of business because we could no longer get enough advertisers because of the Woodstock Kool-Aid sucking political climate here in NYS. After 137 years we closed our newspaper supporters were far and few here in fact seeing our flag flown here in the Town of Wawarsing is still a rare site. I went to a Memorial Day event last night very few folks attended and not one democrat official did I see in the crowd of the few political cronies that were there. I am not stopping writing and they will have to either jail me without pen and paper or hang me to get me to stop. I am proud to see so many of my fellow Americans out there fighting the good fight on many websites and in some media out there. As a Navy Veteran all I can say is if there was none, not one I'd still write and still protest policy that has already failed the world over. I remember being in Europe 30 some odd years ago then it was fashionable then to be communist of the young and the crazy much like the liberal left Hollywood rope smokers of this country today. They for the most part either still think they are in that cow paddy of Bethel in Woodstock or too young to know or like George Soros too evil to care. We have a big job in front of us but for God, Country and Family it is worth it and I believe by the grace of God we will defeat these nuts once again. Complacency is our enemy as is greed we must always be vigilant and be led by God's word and his will and we know the outcome of the greatest book ever written so fight on.

Fair winds and following seas to all,
Mike Walkerwicz,
Navy Veteran Oath Keeper, GOE, Patriot...
Dear Gary!

Mary F. Stump
