Nullification valid means to oppose federal edicts

Posted: February 27, 2013 - 5:33pm  |  Updated: February 28, 2013 - 9:52am

With the overconfidence fed a subservient press, the federal government has discovered, at long last, that there are limits to where it can push the states and the people. The issue is self-defense, as in guns and firearms. We can already see how the current federal dictator and his Congressional lackeys are attempting to extract themselves from an issue that is proving as prickly as a porcupine. The shop-worn media techniques, like photo ops with guns, are so transparent now that it has created the opposite effect: not a suckered electorate, but increased resistance.

We can also be certain that no federal statute will emerge to confiscate our guns, at least for now. Too many Democratic senators from Republican states, of which Mark Begich is the prime example, would be committing political suicide. Far more dangerous are state and local laws, with New York and the other northeastern states leading the way. But this, too, is questionable, at the city council of Westford, Massachusetts had second thoughts, and received a standing ovation for doing so.

The tyrants may have control of the federal apparatus of government, but they do not control the majority of the state legislatures, a much better indicator of the national mood. If warfare and welfare appear to divide Americans, this is not so with the Second Amendment. It is here that Alaskans need to be introduced to the key to effective resistance: nullification.

A major rally on this topic will be presented on Monday, March 4 at 7:00 p.m., at the KCHS auditorium. On hand will be NRA vice-president Wayne Anthony Ross, and live via SKYPE Best-Selling author Thomas Woods, author of Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.

What is nullification? It is not secession, it is not unconstitutional, it is not untried and it is not ineffective. It is, in fact, a supremely courageous and constitutional act, because it seeks to restore the proper relationship in the much-abused balance between the states and their own creature, the federal government. The nonsense that believes the Constitution demands that the states, but not the national government, obey the constraints that are placed upon it, is the surest sign of tyranny and oppression.

Nullification as found in HB 69 sponsored by House Speaker Mike Chenault, will declare that any federal agent who threatens a law-abiding Alaskan with gun confiscation, to be a felon. It will place the authority of the state between the federal government and the citizen.

A series of bills are currently moving through the legislature and the indications are that its sponsors and supporters will not be easily scared off by hostile opinions. Furthermore, the issues are not negotiable. A legislator’s oath to protect and defend the Constitution is not an oath to protect and defend the federal government.

The bills declare that 1) the federal government is acting outside of the law with attempts to limit the right to keep and bear arms; and 2) as a remedy for a host of other illegal federal acts, nullification might prove just as useful, as in Rep. Wes Keller’s HB 83.

Get ready: the journalistic and academic gurus, together with the cosmetically adorned judiciary with black robes and long faces, will tell us peasants just what the Constitution is supposed to mean. However, a critical mass of the citizenry appears to have figured out that this system is a sham that has gone on for too long, and is in fact responsible for bringing us to this juncture; better yet, the peoples’ representatives in the legislature now realize that we understand this, and will act accordingly.

But a warning: the weapon that the tyrants will wield will be in their control of the legal, academic and journalistic spheres; and ultimately the threat of removing all federal funding.

But what a liberating moment that will prove to be!

amazing.... "gloves or no

amazing.... "gloves or no gloves" direct threat

"I'm going to ask him look up somebodies -ss!"

illegal usage of police resources.. another threat.

"taking out guard dogs to get to primary targets"

outright lie....... link to it....prove anything....

or hush puppy.

the censor needs to actually read vs listen to a

whiner concocting absurd fantasies..

i guess if your whole existence, your whole sense

of anything about yourself is tied up into a nickname,

then you have a problem to go along with the inability

to actually read for content and comprehend what is


by inference, by direct written comments you slam/diss,

malign and threaten others on a constant basis. now, if

all you did was state your opinion minus all the hatred towards

democrats and obama, then you might have a basis

to complain.. except you write such as " about one thing the extream liberals are mentally ILL. "

throw the first stone and then whine??

what is with that.. sounds juvenile..

Dick Act 1902

The Dick Act of 1902 has been effectively repealed through subsequent modifying legislation such as: Militia Act of 1908,National Defense Act of 1916,and The National Defense Act of 1920. Catch up please.

Ah, yes. It's the most educated among us, the judiciary, the media and academia, who have it all wrong. They're the ones ruining this country with their grand conspiracy designed to make us subservient by taking our guns and imposing a Marxist-style state upon us. Instead, the real truth is only known by a bunch of wing-nut North Roaders with hard-ons for guns and a penchant for conspiracy theories. They're the only ones who truly understand the world was created in seven days, global warming is a leftist myth and 911 was an inside job. I sure wish my kids were fortunate enough to attend a school where they could learn the real truth from a genuine patriot like Mr. Bird (AKA the North Road Loon). When will people around here start to realize just how dangerous this guy is?

WoW ! We agree on Something !

3/10/13 Kenai Kid I am shocked to know that You & I agree on Something ! That's Welcome to me.

The North Road Militia Members & Mr Bird from Nikiski are foaming at the mouth Waiting for another Civil War to occur here in the United States.

They truly believe that a ATF SWAT Team will soon be Kicking in Their Door to Grab All of Their Guns ! They would Jump for Joy if that actually happened. They Dream of this Happening.
Meanwhile all of the Gun Makers are Jumping for Joy & Laughing All the Way to the Bank as their $Profits$ soar.The NRA are Laughing with Joy & increased paranoia & membership.
DoomsDay Preppers the End of the World is upon Us & maxing out their credit cards buying more Guns, Ammo & Survival Equipment. They also are Dreaming of the End of the World. It consumes their every thought.
Mister Paranoia Himself Jesse Ventura is their Master.

THINK SPRING ! Sunshine & Green Grass
