In times like these we start asking ourselves hard questions. While most Americans go about their days asleep to the the suffering coming on our children, some of us are carrying the heavy burden and looking for real answers.
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort” — US Constitution Article 3:3
The government of the United States is levying war against the people and our laws. In our homes, on our roads, in our courts and in our legislatures. When this nation was founded these events had been foreseen. Men like John Locke, on who’s writings our Republic was inspired, make this very clear.
In all States and Conditions the true remedy of Force without Authority, is to oppose Force to it. The use of force without Authority, always puts him that uses it into a state of War, as the Aggressor, and renders him liable to be treated accordingly. — John Locke, Second Treatise.
Read our the Declaration. Read the Affirmation that over 700 patriots signed when we defied new gun laws in Washington a year ago. A simple method of telling a real terrorist is that the terrorist terrorizes, abusing and killing innocents.– They accuse and charge us in their courts with the very crimes they commit!
What are we to do?
We stand on the edge of revolution; but that does not mean we seek violence or vengeance. We seek peace, just as LaVoy did. But we must be willing to stand.
Bloody revolution alone rarely restores liberty; repentance can. With repentance and principle liberty can be restored to a nation that has once forgotten what good and evil is. We have a moral right and duty to disobey an unjust government. I would especially remind my Christian brothers, to honor tyrants is treason to Christ.
When you see military vesicles rolling across public roads to assault men of peace. When you watch them punish and enslave those who love the law of this land. When you watch them kill our friends and neighbors, arrest reporters aim guns at mothers; make no pretense; these officials, officers and bureaucrats are nothing but what our laws say. They are enemies of this nation, more polite, but as wicked as ISIS itself and they overthrow our Supreme law. These officials commit sedition and treason against us, their masters who hold lawful authority and their God given rights.
We have come to this because we are apathetic, because we care more for pleasures more then for principle. Politicians are still playing politics; Americans are wearing the shiny shackles of a happy slave and Christians are not following Christ. We don’t have to all agree on matters of faith. But a nation must maintain it’s values to survive.
“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other” – John Adams
I submit that God is not blessing America because we are not blessing God. We must seek mercy, turn to liberty and stand boldly against evil. Our nation may have to endure a great suffering, for our populace has become not only blind, but willingly numbed to the abuse and suffering of their neighbor, from the child in the womb to the neighbor on their street.
Tyranny will never end until WE THE PEOPLE have the principle to affirm that the unlawful suffering of our neighbor is as evil as if it were ourselves!
We carry on. We stand, but we must be wise, peaceful and principled. Set aside the politics, the distractions, the false security and the lies. Love your neighbor. Stand on liberty.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” — Samuel Adams
Douglas County Superior court under Judge John Hotchkiss blocked my appeal from happening. I am now under house arrest for the next 14 days and on probation for 12 months; I comply at the point of a gun! We could keep fighting in the court, but in truth we cannot afford it and that money better spent elsewhere. The courts are lost, the justice system gone! We win only when we stand on principle. When we appeal to heaven and when you humble our hearts in defiance of tyranny. — If you cannot win on the enemy’s battlefield, then choose your own!
Watch my original arrest and the whole story HERE!
If Jesus was alive today… He would be fined for hosting events without a permit, arrested for eluding police, found in contempt of court for not answering questions, charged with terrorism for throwing out the money changers and crucified by an angry mob for speaking the truth about sin.
Meanwhile the church would be shaking their head in disgust saying “he just should have obeyed the law”. — That’s a man I want to emulate. What a beautiful thing we be able to suffer abuse for the sake of Christ and liberty.
Had I been one of them they would love me. Had I scratched the back of Sheriff Gjesdal and persecutor Edgar. Had I been like the Wenatchee World, meeting secretly with the judge, then filming while others were arrested for doing the same. Had I done those things my family and I would not have been abused. But I would not have been a man of principle.
Today they are accountable, they have been exposed and are now on notice. The officials of Douglas County and those who support them are complicit in criminal activity. I bear no shame. I am proud of every abuse I endure for liberty. But I am not broken today, I am humble before God and defiant before tyrants.
I’m under house arrest for 14 days. I can go to work and while the anklet is not so bad, what it symbolizes is very bad. But I am blessed, many friends like Shaffer Cox, Jeff Weinhaus and James Faire are sitting in a cages for nothing. How it makes me burn. Seek God, liberty will win and justice will come.
So what did it cost? This has taken up a year of our lives. My whole family and some of you pitched in. Defense for me and my dad, legal costs and fines to our side amounted to around $16,000. That does not count the hundreds of man hours lost, the stress endured or the many hours donated by our attorney. How much did Douglas County waste persecuting this? A lot!
Still we stand. I want to thank my Dad who was also arrested, my family and all the patriots that stood with us. I especially want to thank my wife and my attorney Stephen Pidgeon, who fought hard and gave much of his time. Most of all I want to thank Jesus for always standing by his people. The fight for liberty is only begun; I stand on principle and I appeal to heaven. — Gav
Video of the original incident from Jan 2015 and our arrest. Read the full story here..
What a historic time. The choices we make will become the black and white pages of history. Wicked villains, patriot heroes, men of God and truth and many cowards who stood silent. What will you be?
This is a piece of our story. I was raised aware of justice, liberty and truth. I spoke our against those things. I was informed enough to know something was wrong, that the American dream I was told about was gone. But the day comes when we need to stand boldly; many are ignoring that call. No matter how imperfect, you must stand principled, you must not ignore that call.
I decided to post this previously unreleased released video of my first time. A clip cluttered with distractions and my own fears, but one that at least I filmed. It was a moment that brought State of our nation to the forefront and started me on a journey. Once you look tyranny in the eyes with defiance, once you see them abusing your neighbors. Once you understand right and wrong and that these God given rights matter. Once that happens you learn that to love liberty, you must HATE tyranny!
I realized that day.. Why do we place ourselves subordinate to lawless goverment who abuses our families. Neither as a man, nor a Christian am I called to that. That’s not how we protect our children, that’s how we enslave them.
This was early 2012 and it’s become worse since then. We are on a 4 month road trip traveling in our RV from Big Bend National Park in Texas. We came to this small one lane checkpoint and I’d had enough. I refused to pull to secondary and be harassed or searched; blocked the road until we were released. It’s time we keep the pressure on THEM.
Its’ sad that places like Texas tolerate these INLAND Nazi style checkpoints. They talk of liberty, but let it be trampled in the mud without doing a thing to stop it. We are all to blame. Every corner of American is allowing injustice and tyranny. WE MUST STAND!
We are no longer a land of the brave, but a land of the slave!
For me posting this revealed how self focused many Americans are. I watched as many ignored the content and begin whining about my crying son on the backseat. They were not entertained enough! America has become a pathetic, selfish and entertainment focused people. We talk of rights and patriotism, yet it’s all in movies. We do nothing to defend our neighbor, nothing for liberty, nothing for truth. — It’s time to get over yourselves! Put down your games and beer and sports; stop scratching your navels and do something! People of prpciple stand up for liberty, even at inconvenient times!
Those times are now. This is not simply about checkpoints. Life, liberty and property are laid waste at every corner of America. Children are murdered and innocent imprisoned. Judges are thugs and lawless police back every abuse, while adding fuel to the fire. If you cannot see your goverment is evil, that our hearts have become evil and that liberty is lost. You need to wake up!
DO NOT COMPLY AMERICA!
My wonderful wife stand with me. We stand for liberty. I do not answer their questions, I NO LONGER tell them my citizenship, I DO NOT comply with tyranny. Afterwards we drove into town and went out for Ice cream. Our road trip continued, but everything had changed. This was the day I decided I would give up everything for liberty. Life has not been the same since!
It’s time to begin loving your neighbor as yourself, time to restore liberty with principle and justice with compassion. I’m going to start on my knees with repentance and a fierce cry to heaven; then I’m going to stand fiercely on my feet before tyrants. Maybe you should do the same.
The early American Gadsden patriot flag. Kids were forced to remove this, along with the confederate Battle flag and the American flag!
That’s what we all should be saying. And so should our children.
School started this week in Royal City WA. While my kids are home schooled, many kids have to suffer through our public brainwashing system. I always encourage parents to look for any other solution because our Federally run education system works in pure opposition to liberty. So while I don’t go into public schools often, I felt the need to stand with these kids.
I want to encourage the next generation to be bold for what is right. The government wants to break their spirit; I want to build it! Schools tells them their rights don’t apply at the school. It’s time they united and parents with them and defied these lies. Your rights apply everywhere!
Royal City is a small farming town nearby. A town that wears a smile and underpinned with corruption because it’s leaders have failed to stand for liberty. Crony friends are already defending lawless administrators who actually seem to think they are Royals. This is happening on communities all over America. Truth is made a lies and tyranny is called safety.
This is NOT about race, Confederates, patriot flags or safety. It’s a trickle down tactic of big goverment to break the back of liberty and crush the spirit of the generation most likely to remove them.
When I heard kids were getting in in trouble for flying flags, I decided to head down and see what was going up. The reception I got was not so much accountable public servants as gang members defending their turf. It’s well known that central Washington has a gang problem. But often our biggest and most violent gang is our own goverment.
It’s time to teach your kids to stand up. Be bold and stand with them. Better yet, get your kids our of these crazy places and teach them to stand still. American public schools are no place for children.
You can call Royal City High School: (509) 346-2222 and find their Facebook page HERE(note that they are deleting the comments of any who question them.)
The main cast of characters in this video are Principal, Matt Ellis, Vice Principal, Rick Follet and Former Mayor/Teacher, Andrew Perkins. One should also ask, where is the County Sheriff, Where are local Police, where is the Royal City Council. Are the people who took oaths to defend the Constitution silent?
Our elders have failed liberty. They sat silently and watched us slip into tyranny, sin and lies. They sat silent as the mind of slaves became the mind of America. It’s time for them and us to step up; to start loving our neighbor as our self as we stand boldly for liberty. It’s time to stop following false truths and stop playing politics for good times and false friends.
The Constitution does NOT give us rights. It affirms them as absolute upon government! YOU MUST STAND UP and take them!
If everyone refused and questioned checkpoints; they would become dysfunctional overnight and shut down!
This short video came in recently from a family that follows my work. They saw the conversations about unconstitutional checkpoints and decided to ask questions for themselves rather than of simply doing what they were told. Watch what happens when they politely question this checkpoint guard to get justification for why people are being stopped in the middle a California highway
Liberty is a family affair. It really warms my heart to see families and young folks standing up and questioning lawless authority. We should all question and challenge government all the time, otherwise they will trample us every time. America is coming apart because for too long Americans have been silent at the abuse of the neighbors and their liberty.
Bugs don’t stop for checkpoints, your fruit does not override our rights and the framers did NOT include an exemption in the 4th amendment for either! This has nothing to do with agriculture and everything to do with control. The last time I came to this checkpoint I drove way! ALL suspicionless checkpoints are ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Whether federal, State or Local. This includes DUI checkpoints. Lawless officials who take part in them should be regarded as the criminals they are.
We the people have to fix this. We have to uphold the law. Congress won’t do it. A new president won’t do it. We have to step up and say NO MORE!
