MARCH FOR OUR LIVES NYC

Thousands of people turned out in NYC as well as DC and 800 other cities in the U.S. and around the world to March for Our Lives in solidarity with the students from Parkland Fla. and others who know someone killed by gun violence yesterday, near 72nd St and Central Park West.

The stage of speakers was set up near Trump Tower at Columbus Circle with amplification up Central Park West. This is near 72nd St & CPW

Before going too much further, I wanted to share this link by Veterans For Gun Reform expressing that it’s only military and “law enforcement” who should have the guns.

This is simply Not accurate. It is this country and it’s Illegitimate “War on Terror” that created people like Nicholas Cruz in the first place! These students need to know that the 16 year “war on Terror”, and no sign of slowing down, and this countries Death “economy” that is responsible for the killing of their classmates.

 

911 Guilty Group #1: Saudi Arabia

We’ll begin with the most obvious group: the nation of Saudi Arabia, which is really the private kingdom of the House of Saud, the oil-rich, Bush-and-Clinton-funding, citizen-beheading, human right-destroying tyrannical regime that lashes bloggers for writing against them and forbids women from driving cars.

Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the 911 attacks is obvious, since right after the attacks the FBI named 15 (out of 19) hijackers of Saudi nationality.

However, it’s important not to just stop here (as the conspirators want you to) because you’ll miss the deeper forces orchestrating the attacks. They want Islamophobia.

They want the public to hate Islam and Islamic terrorism, to be afraid of US-Israeli creations like ISIS, and to view all Muslims as the new enemy. Despite what you may think, Saudi Arabia and Israel have a cosy relationship which was an important element of the 911 attacks.

Representatives of the Bush and Bin Laden family met the day before the 911 attacks. Things are not always what they seem …

Earlier this year, when Congress was discussing the possibility of releasing the infamous 28 pages, Saudi Arabia got so riled up they blackmailed the US by threatening to sell $750 billion in US treasuries to collapse the US dollar!

Eventually the 28 pages were released, showing how Saudi Arabia used spies to launder money to the 911 hijackers.

They provided the cash, the spies and the operatives. The American public knew all about it right from the start – yet funnily enough, Saudi Arabia never got attacked for their part, despite the fact that fellow Muslim nations did, such asIraqAfghanistan, Sudan, Libya and Syria just name a few.

A passage from the 28 pages reads:

“Discussion: One reason for the limited understanding is that it was only after September 11 that the U.S. Government began to aggressively investigate this issue. Prior to September 11th, the FBI apparently did not focus investigative resources on ——– —————— Saudi nationals in the United States due to Saudi Arabia’s status as an American “ally.””

What is the 2nd Amendment and it’s intended purpose as by the Founders of the U.S. Constitution? Here is one link, https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/second_amendment

 

Second Amendment

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Such language has created considerable debate regarding the Amendment’s intended scope. On the one hand, some believe that the Amendment’s phrase “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms” creates an individual constitutional right for citizens of the United States. Under this “individual right theory,” the United States Constitution restricts legislative bodies from prohibiting firearm possession, or at the very least, the Amendment renders prohibitory and restrictive regulation presumptively unconstitutional. On the other hand, some scholars point to the prefatory language “a well regulated Militia” to argue that the Framers intended only to restrict Congress from legislating away a state’s right to self-defense. Scholars have come to call this theory “the collective rights theory.” A collective rights theory of the Second Amendment asserts that citizens do not have an individual right to possess guns and that local, state, and federal legislative bodies therefore possess the authority to regulate firearms without implicating a constitutional right.

In 1939 the U.S. Supreme Court considered the matter in United States v. Miller. 307 U.S. 174. The Court adopted a collective rights approach in this case, determining that Congress could regulate a sawed-off shotgun that had moved in interstate commerce under the National Firearms Act of 1934 because the evidence did not suggest that the shotgun “has some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated milita . . . .” The Court then explained that the Framers included the Second Amendment to ensure the effectiveness of the military.

This precedent stood for nearly 70 years when in 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court revisited the issue in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller (07-290). The plaintiff in Hellerchallenged the constitutionality of the Washington D.C. handgun ban, a statute that had stood for 32 years. Many considered the statute the most stringent in the nation. In a 5-4 decision, the Court, meticulously detailing the history and tradition of the Second Amendment at the time of the Constitutional Convention, proclaimed that the Second Amendment established an individual right for U.S. citizens to possess firearms and struck down the D.C. handgun ban as violative of that right. The majority carved out Miller as an exception to the general rule that Americans may possess firearms, claiming that law-abiding citizens cannot use sawed-off shotguns for any law-abiding purpose. Similarly, the Court in its dictafound regulations of similar weaponry that cannot be used for law-abiding purposes as laws that would not implicate the Second Amendment. Further, the Court suggested that the United States Constitution would not disallow regulations prohibiting criminals and the mentally ill from firearm possession.

Thus, the Supreme Court has revitalized the Second Amendment. The Court continued to strengthen the Second Amendment through the 2010 decision in McDonald v. City of Chicago (08-1521). The plaintiff in McDonald challenged the constitutionally of the Chicago handgun ban, which prohibited handgun possession by almost all private citizens. In a 5-4 decisions, the Court, citing the intentions of the framers and ratifiers of the Fourteenth Amendment, held that the Second Amendment applies to the states through the incorporation doctrine. However, the Court did not have a majority on which clause of the Fourteenth Amendment incorporates the fundamental right to keep and bear arms for the purpose of self-defense. While Justice Alito and his supporters looked to the Due Process Clause, Justice Thomas in his concurrence stated that the Privileges and Immunities Clause should justify incorporation.

However, several questions still remain unanswered, such as whether regulations less stringent than the D.C. statute implicate the Second Amendment, whether lower courts will apply their dicta regarding permissible restrictions, and what level of scrutiny the courts should apply when analyzing a statute that infringes on the Second Amendment. As a general note, when analyzing statutes and ordinances, courts use three levels of  scrutiny, depending on the issue at hand:

  1. strict scrutiny
  2. intermediate scrutiny
  3. rational basis

The Fraud of the War on Terror

 

Immediately after he denounced Fidel Castro for being a dictator, President Bush unilaterally decreed new sanctions against Iran, moving the United States closer to war against Iran. Would someone please tell me how it is that Bush exercises such omnipotent power, without even a peep from both Congress and the mainstream press? How is he able to take such serious and ominous action against a sovereign and independent country without going to Congress for permission? Weren’t we taught in civics classes in our public schools that Congress enacts the laws, the president enforces them, and the judiciary interprets them? How can the president now rule by decree, enacting and enforcing laws whenever he wants, especially ones that are likely to send our nation into war? How is that different from what a dictator does?

David Swanson TED Talk TEDx Charlottesville on Why End War

  I made a sign for this event because the students and young people speaking out sound exactly like me trying to bring the issue of Child Abuse to light for decades. It’s no secret anymore, children and the vulnerable have been sold out by the “adults” to Corporate “profit” just like the planet. I call it Health Climate Change. When those who should be raised to be the future are, instead being abused, that should be a glaring red flag that something is VERY wrong in this society. Disaster Capitalism goes in Direct conflict with health and nature. The signs have been CLEAR for decades but, too many people put the paycheck first.

$ is the weapon the Powers that Should Not Be use to enslave and it is Not backed by any Real value. What gives anything Real value it when it’s Aligned WITH Natural Law. $ is the Opposite of that. The more it circulates and is created out of nothing, the more disaster will occur. $ = Death

Just like the planet, the youth have No other agenda than have the right to exist and thrive. Corporations want it all though, endless “profits”, fake $. Nature and health are what we need to align with. We have a serious problem as Disaster Capitalism and Nature collide.

 

   

The laws of Nature have been turned upside down and inside out. A Frankenstein world is being created and picking up speed. We should have been taking steps to reverse Climate Change years ago. The Planet will not forgive.
