It’s 6 a.m. and a groggy Ken Wright is getting ready to start the day. Thinking about jumping in the shower, getting the coffee on, and waking the kids …

Suddenly noise from outside draws his attention, and he looks out the window. He sees dozens of black-clad, armored men swarming on his lawn, and now someone is pounding on the front door. As he starts down the stairs in his boxer shorts, the front door shatters, and the heavily armed men charge into the house pointing guns and shouting orders. They grab Wright, drag him from the home, throw him down in the front lawn and roughly handcuff him as the neighbors look on in horror. Wright is placed into a police cruiser and then sees the black-clad figures with their guns and body armor dragging his three children, aged 3, 9 and 11, out of the house screaming and crying. They too are locked in the police cruiser where Wright can at least talk to them and try to calm them down. The search of the house goes on for six hours as Wright and the children sit helplessly in the hot police cruiser wondering what it’s all about.

Is it the FBI raiding a suspected terrorist cell? The DEA busting a major cocaine smuggling ring? A local SWAT team searching for a murdered wife?

No, it’s a team of agents from the U.S. Department of Education Office of the Inspector General, or EDOIG, looking for evidence of student loan fraud.

The Department of Education? With guns, armor and battering rams?

This is not some far-fetched TV script or the delusional rantings of a kooky conspiracy theorist. These are the facts as reported by local Stockton, Calif., media.

Apparently the EDOIG agents were looking for evidence in an investigation of Wright’s estranged wife Michelle, who does not currently reside in the home. It is not yet clear whether the EDOIG agents knew that Michelle Wright no longer lived there or that the children were in the home.

I have long been vocal in my strenuous objection to “no-knock” and “announce and enter” search warrants. I believe they, and the paramilitary forces and tactics employed to serve them, are not only an affront to the Fourth Amendment, but are inherently dangerous to all concerned. Their use in certain types of cases dealing with drug gangs, kidnapping, murder and terrorism might sometimes be justified, but their use in the vast majority of cases is simply unjustifiable. Military tactics employed in a case of student aid fraud – by an agency of federal bean-counters – goes well beyond unjustifiable and solidly into the realm of criminal.

I have previously raised concerns about the Department of Education and various other bureaucratic agencies within the federal government, developing their own law enforcement agencies with full arrest powers and special assault forces. Over a year ago I raised an alarm after the EDOIG put out a request for bids to purchase 27 Remington 870s, 12-gauge shotguns with 14-inch barrels and special, adjustable stocks. You can read that column by clicking here.

The quote request included a brief statement explaining that such 14-inch Remington 870s were the “only shotguns authorized for ED based on compatibility with ED existing shotgun inventory, certified armor and combat training and protocol, maintenance and parts.”

That statement raised even more questions. Specifically, why did the Department of Education have an “existing shotgun inventory” and “certified armor,” and why on earth would they have “combat training and protocol”?

Exploring those questions led to the startling revelation that Inspectors General for over two dozen federal agencies – from the Environmental Protection Agency to the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to NASA – have been authorized by Congress to seek law enforcement powers from the Attorney General without having to demonstrate any proof of need or ability. At this point it is not totally clear just how many of those IGs have taken advantage of the opportunity, but even just one is way too many – as demonstrated by the outrageous raid on Ken Wright’s home.

What if Wright had not realized that the people breaking down his front door were law enforcement? What if he had grabbed a gun to protect his home from the violent invaders? As I have previously reported, exactly that scenario played out in Tucson last month when Pima County Sherriff deputies raided the home of José Guerena.

Guerena was shot some 60 times and died at the scene. The debacle is still under investigation. Similar tragedies are all too common with innocent victims, non-violent offenders and officers paying with their lives.

How could anyone possibly justify placing Wright and his children’s lives – not to mention the lives of the EDOIG agents – in such jeopardy over allegations of fraudulent student loans?

The federal agent who swore out the warrant against Wrights home, the agents who executed it and the judge who signed it should all face serious disciplinary action as should any agency or judge executing or issuing such warrants in such a cavalier and clearly reckless manner.

Meanwhile, Congress needs to repeal the law authorizing law enforcement powers for bureaucracies. Federal thugs – as these agents proved themselves to be – have no business coming into our communities and crashing into people’s homes – regardless of the validity of the allegations.

Obama: U.S. Will Be Highest Taxed Country In The World

Obama: U.S. Will Be Highest Taxed Country In The World

Our spender-in-chief is committing extortion right under our noses. Obama is pushing his plans to increase the payroll tax by 2.5%.That means the total tax rate would be raised to 47% making America the highest taxed country in the world!

The payroll tax affects every single American who gets up to go to work. Even though employers are responsible for collecting this tax, the tax is ultimately passed on to the employee. I guess Obama wants to make up for the tax revenue lost from the people he put out of work.

As “smart” as the Liberal elite think they are, raising taxes when the economy is in ruins and jobs are scarce is beyond idiotic. Contrary to what the Dems think, when employers are hit with Obama’s payroll tax they won’t jump for joy – they will begin laying people off because they can’t afford the extra taxes. Obama seems to think you don’t deserve to keep your money or your job.


Obama’s power-abusing trip doesn’t end there. Not satisfied with kicking regular Americans while they’re down, he’s also proposing a 62% tax rate for high income earners. Welcome back to the 1970s, where under Jimmy Carter the highest tax rate was at a whopping 70%! Keep in mind Obama’s tax hikes will be in addition to the upcoming tax increases that will take effect when the Bush tax cuts expire in 2012.

Progressives in Washington want to repeal the Bush tax cuts (tax breaks for people who make $250,000 or more.) On their campaign to gain support for axing the tax cuts, the Dems vilified the recipients characterizing them as “rich” and “undeserving of the money they earned.” In reality, people who receive the Bush tax cuts are small businesses, married couples and JOB CREATORS.


The Democrats have a lot more up their sleeves. They’ve levied additional taxes on investment income and are pushing for more tax increases on capital gains. Apparently the 3.8% ObamaCare investment tax wasn’t enough. When will their taxation spree end? If the Dems succeed in repealing the Bush tax cuts, the capital gains tax rates will rise from 15% to 22%.

While most of us aren’t lucky enough to be high earners, that doesn’t mean we will be immune to Obama’s frantic scramble to pay off the debt he created. Letting the Bush tax cuts expire and forcing the rich to dump more of their money in Obama’s special interests piggy bank will kill any chance we have for an economic recovery.


Obama said that we need tax hikes to pay down the deficit. Wait – wasn’t it Obama who is responsible for the biggest spending spree in history? I’d like to see Obama volunteer to give up his fortune to Uncle Sam. A tax hike will not help pay off our deficit, in fact, it won’t even make a noticeable dent in the debt. I’m not sure why Obama and his buddies are spending all this time trying to figure out how to cut down the deficit when the answer is so simple – cut spending and stop the tax increases!

There it is -Obama and his cronies have shown they have NO interest in an economic recovery- they want to make tough times tougher!

THEY JUST DON’T GET IT — but they WILL “get it,” if the American people make their voices heard LOUD AND CLEAR again!

And that’s just what we’ve set up our website to enable you to do! You can send Blast Faxes to EVERY SINGLE MEMBER of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, AT ONCE, telling them to stop Obama’s tax hike plans – NOW!


Be sure to MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD TODAY! Thank you!

The new PATRIOT Act has Senators alarmed

Here we are again, folks. The current “interpretation” of the PATRIOT Act, which STILL hasn’t been read by the majority of Congress, is essentially another Enabling Act. They can spy on anyone – hell, just check out the video and pass it on, okay? If this doesn’t go seriously viral so that enough people are raising Cain about it, we’re in deep, deep trouble.

Good luck to us all!



I bet you didn’t know we have a new
and improved PATRIOT Act.

Well, the law may not be new, but the
way it’s being applied is.

There’s no longer any pretense that it’s
for investigation of terrorists. Now anyone
is fair game.

It’s gotten so extreme that even Senators
on the Intelligence Committee are alarmed.

Rand Paul Fights Harry Reid – Colorado FIGHT BACK!!

Dear Colorado Patriots,

Senator Rand Paul is continuing his efforts to hold Harry Reid accountable to his February promise to allow a full week of debate and open amendments on extending the Patriot Act.

In defiance of Senate orders, Sen. Paul courageously brought up three amendments and asked for unanimous consent to allow a discussion and a vote on them.

Harry Reid then personally objected to protecting gun owners’ rights and shut the attempt down.

Rand is ensuring that this Patriot Act fight is far from over.

Now is the time to call our Senators and demand that they do not sacrifice our 2nd Amendment rights in the name of fighting terror!

Do our elected officials not remember that everythwarted hijacking since 9/11 has been accomplished by American civilians?

  • United Flight 93: Forced down by civilians
  • Shoe Bomber: Stopped by the passengers
  • The so-called “underwear bomber”: stopped by an American citizen

Why would anyone except a despot and a tyrant want to disarm the law abiding citizens of this country?

Please call Michael Bennet at (202) 224-5852 and Mark Udall at (202) 224-5941.

Then, please call Harry Reid at (202) 224-3542.  Demand that Senator Reid stop using dirty tricks to pass unconstitutional bills.  Remind him that parliamentary rules were not made to be broken, and the Constitution is not just a piece of paper.

Yours in Freedom,

Bonnie Cannon
Interim Colorado State Coordinator
Campaign for Liberty
P.S.  Sen. Reid is personally objecting to Sen. Paul’s amendments to make sure the Patriot Act does not tread on our 2nd Amendment rights.  Our Senators should be supporting our constitutional rights and not bowing to the demands of Sen. Reid.  Please call them now and demand they support Sen. Rand Paul’s amendments to the Patriot Act.

Please call Michael Bennet at (202) 224-5852 and Mark Udall at (202) 224-5941.  And hurry, the vote could happen at 1:00 AM tonight (Wednesday night.)

P.P.S.  By the way, since Reid is constantly blocking Rand’s efforts to stand up for gun owners, where’s the statement, NRA?  (Maybe look for it over by where you left the statement supporting the DISCLOSE Act.)



Alert: Technology watchdogs and digital forensics experts are reporting that Obama’s newly released birth certificate is an obvious forgery. Denials to the contrary are NOT a refutation; many questions remain disputed and unanswered.


Truth seekers across the country have performed the simple task of opening Obama’s released “birth certificate” using Adobe Illustrator – a favorite tool for discovering digital forgeries. In this program, one can select the option called “release all clipping masks” to see what the original document looked like before it was edited. In the case of Barack Obama’s newly released “birth certificate” the revelations are stunning and We the People should DEMAND that Congress, State Governors and State Secretaries of State uphold their Constitutional duties to investigate thoroughly before Obama’s name may be placed on the ballot for President in 2012, because in all justice – the unlawful actions of this man and his political faction will compel Congress to IMPEACH OBAMA now because of the fraud and cover up he has thrust on this nation for two and a half years.

While we at Americans United for Freedom have not yet tested the document ourselves, numerous independent watchdogs and digital forensics experts are reporting, as shown above, dates, occupations, signatures and more have been edited and completely replaced with information that better fits the Obama narrative. This means the birth certificate may well be falsified, and if it is a fake, Obama has committed fraud and it leads us to ask, “What is he covering up?”

Forgery is a crime. Presenting false documents is a crime. Barack Hussein Obama II is a criminal if he has authorized or colluded with the presentation of fraudulent documentation.

There is a reason forgers always get caught; paper trails are nearly impossible to erase. So, rather than coming clean with a real long form birth certificate, has Obama continued his cover up that will make Nixon’s Watergate look like a boy getting caught with his hand in the cookie jar? All we need to do is compare Obama’s forgery with a real Hawaiian long form birth certificate to see disturbing indications that it is a fake and another cover up – JUST AS TEAM OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE (DNC) PERPETRATED IN THE 2008 ELECTION.


Susan E. Nordyke was born in Hawaii the day after Barack Obama’s reported birthday. In fact, she was born at the same hospital where Obama claims to have been born. And Nordyke has released her official long form birth certificate – which proves Obama’s newly released document is a complete forgery.

The discrepancies between these two documents are numerous, but the most glaringly obvious proof of forgery is the file and certificate number on the upper right side of each document.

Ms. Nordyke’s Birth Certificate            Fake Obama Certificate?

Allow us to explain. In every county of this nation, there is a County Clerk or Registrar whose job is to document births, deaths, marriages and other official papers for archival purposes. This documentation is given a certificate number and entered into record books. The certificate numbers are issued in sequential order based on the date the Clerk or Registrar received the official document. The later a record is registered by the county clerk, the higher the certificate number.

Ms. Nordyke’s birth certificate was registered August 11, 1961 and has a certificate # of 61-10637

Barack Obama’s newly released birth certificate is registered August 8, 1961 and has a certificate # of 61-10641.

See the problem? Obama was supposedly registered 3 days before Nordyke, yet Obama’s certificate lists a number 3 digits after Nordyke’s.

This is impossible.

If Obama’s document were legitimate, it should necessarily have a certificate number before Nordyke’s.

We can thank the sacrifice of LTC Terry Lakin, thousands of patriotic U.S. citizens, and even Donald Trump for forcing Obama to play an ill-considered hand AND criminally revealing hand. Now it is imperative we ensure that the Congress and the state legislatures, and others finally looking at this crisis hear from us about all the evidence of wrong-doing and collusion that continues to unfold.

We must demand our Congressmen and state legislators require proof positive evidence of eligibility for any candidate seeking the highest office in our land, or Barack Hussein Obama may well steal the election once again.


There is no question that doubt exists as to the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama for the Office of President, yet efforts to prevent a continuation of dereliction of duty on ensuring Constitutionally qualified candidates in the 2012 general election remains an uphill battle.

State legislatures across the nation are moving to require Presidential candidates provide long form birth certificates, proof of natural born citizenship status and evidence of eligibility when running for the office of President — but both major political party establishments are dead-set against such accountability.

Jan Brewer, Governor of Arizona, just vetoed a bill that would have required candidates to present their long form birth certificate. Don’t let YOUR governor make the same mistake!


Decorated U.S. Army war veteran LTC Terry Lakin is serving hard time in the Ft. Leavenworth military prison for seeking to confirm the lawfulness of his orders from the man presently occupying the Oval Office. By daring to question the legitimacy of his Commander in Chief, Lakin was removed from his outstanding career, and imprisoned. NONE of his Constitutional purpose and NONE of the information above was allowed to be presented in his trial. Justice has been railroaded and our Constitution trampled. My friends, we cannot allow this travesty of justice to continue. Please support Declaration Alliance as we continue to the fight to clear LTC Terry Lakin’s name and restore the power of the United States Constitution to its former glory.

The usurper Barack Obama and his political machine have nearly complete control over the mainstream media which fights every day to keep evidence such as I have presented above OUT of the public eye. ONLY WITH YOUR HELP CAN WE INFORM THE PUBLIC AS TO THE CRIMES THIS ADMINISTRATION CONTINUES TO COMMIT. HELP DECLARATION ALLIANCE SAVE OUR CONSTITUTION, AND SAVE THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC!


It is not an overstatement to say that the future of our ordered liberty rests on the question of Obama’s eligibility. In the same way all roads lead to Rome, all the dirty, Marxist, Constitution breaking legislation and Executive branch atrocities lead back to the birth certificate… because it’s not a law if the man signing it isn’t qualified to be President.

We CAN save the Republic, but we desperately need your help. The Obama Machine has already announced it plans to raise over $1 Billion to re-elect Barack Obama. That kind of money controls media and message that is hard to compete against… but the Constitution will not prevail unless the American public has the facts. We don’t need billions of dollars in foreign and dirty money to expose the truth. The facts are on our side. But we do need your help to get the word out and keep the pressure on Obama to prove his eligibilityand govern Constitutionally. There is legislation pending in Congress and the states that will uphold the Constitution and stop this destruction of our republic. If everyone who receives this message would sacrifice $100 toward preserving their own freedoms, we could ensure that enough concerned Americans learn the truth to make the difference. We can still halt this shocking travesty of justice, and put a stay on the Obama faction’s destruction of our Constitution. Please act TODAY — time is short!

Anti-Government Sovereign Citizens – Patriots or Terrorist… A Citizen Tells All.

Anti-Government Sovereign Citizens – Patriots or Terrorist… A Citizen Tells All.
By: Nathan Scheer

Below this comment you will find a very interesting yet very ill report of what a “Sovereign Citizen” really is. This is a classic example of how media is used to twist the truth, they will take one wing nut that takes shit way to far and throw it on everyone who wishing to have more transparency in Government more control over what is voted on, and more of a voice in congress.

When you have a situation like we do in government there will be patriots who stand up and say no, those who take that precious document the Constitution seriously and will defend it at all cost. I fully support those who have taken themselves all the way through the court system to defend their right to NOT have to pay taxes!

This is their constitutional right not to! The 13th amendment was never ratified … Remember?

Either way, this is just another attack on people who are professional at standing up for whats right, and blowing the whistle on the situation at hand. To label Patriots as home grown terrorist is a weak attack and will clearly be blown out of the water yet again, their symantical games will only get them so far, and will only really effect those who are mindless zombies to the media game.

Those individuals powers are much weaker then those who wake up to their own universal power and stand up for whats right. One person can make a difference. In this case, I do not support Kane below, his arguments come from lack and limitation, from fear! The people I talk about are those who come from a place in their heart, a place of authentic originality and place of caring and love.

So be it, that by the media’s symantics I would be called a home grown terrorist as well.. But really it is those like Obama who is serving as President illegally, and many Congressional men and woman who have nothing but Big Pharma, Big Agrabiz, Big Medica and the like’s interest at hand.

A Sovereign Citizen in my eye’s as long as they are acting professional and resisting the systems push with love and strength in their heart are a group of people that are more so Patriots even then those who blindly serve in the military and risk their lives. A big claim, but when you have a family such as the Rothchilds creating war and playing two sides from the middle… a WORLD not so not a country needs people all over the world to become a Sovereign Citizen and stand up and say “Enough is a Enough!”.

The only way a true revolution will take place is if these individuals continue to support each other in peacefully resisting tyranny!

With that said I would strongly suggest watching David Icke’s newest documentary “The Lion Sleeps no More” by clicking HERE

Sovereign Citizens: Anti-Government Group Files Liens, Some Embrace Violence

The FBI considers them one of the nation’s top domestic terror threats. Their members include cop killers and a convicted Oklahoma City bomber. They call themselves “sovereign citizens,” and have taken various measures to fight the U.S. government. But now, the government is fighting back.

Sovereign citizens are a loosely organized group of people who claim they are not subject to government laws. Estimates suggest there are as many as 300,000 sovereign citizens in the U.S. Sovereign citizens have been known to oppose taxes, file liens against public officials, sign documents with a red thumbprint, and use homemade license plates.

Some sovereign citizens focus on the role of government, a relatable, much-debated issue in the U.S. Alfred Adask told “60 Minutes,””I think the government has gone far beyond its Constitutional limits.” The problem is where they draw the line. Adask once said, “We have the right to keep and bear arms in order to shoot our own politicians.” The violence used by some sovereign citizens is cause for serious concern.

“60 Minutes” recently reported on Jerry Kane Jr. and his 16-year-old son, Joe. A divorced, out-of-work truck driver, Kane and his son began pushing a debt reduction scam around the country. At one seminar, Kane spoke out against members of authority, saying, “I don’t want to have to kill anybody. But if they keep messing with me, that’s what it’s going to have to come out, that’s what it’s going to come down to is I’m gonna have to kill. And if I have to kill one, then I’m not going to be able to stop.”

On May 20, 2010, Kane and his son were pulled over on a highway by police officers. A dashboard camera shows that his son then shot and killed both officers. “60 Minutes” reports that the men were hit with a collective 25 bullets. One of the dead officers was Sgt. Brandon Paudert, West Memphis Police Chief Bob Paudert’s son.

Following his son’s death, Chief Paudert has become fixated on sovereign citizens. Paudert told “60 Minutes” correspondent Byron Pitts, “They’re willing to die for what they believe in. These international terrorists that bombed the twin towers, they were willing to die for their beliefs. The sovereign citizens, the Kanes, are the exact same thing.” Since the shooting, Paudert has traveled the country, educating law enforcement officers on sovereign citizens.

Some actions are now being taken against sovereign citizens. The News Virginian reports that sovereign citizen Michael Creath Jones, 31, was arrested and charged with five misdemeanors last week after a state police officer pulled the man over for having a fake painted license plate. Jones allegedly locked his doors, refused to identify himself, and later resisted arrest.

Also last week, a sovereign citizen was sentenced to 21 months in prison after filing hundreds of financial liens against government officials, The Associated Press reports. Ed George Parenteau, 53, said he was trying to fight municipal corruption, but apologized and agreed to cooperate with authorities.

The act of filing liens against government officials as retribution has been dubbed “paper terrorism,” which can ruin a target’s credit, reports “60 Minutes.” Robert Vosper, a small-town justice reports, “I have liens against me in three states in this country for a half a billion dollars.”

Whether it’s paper or physical attacks, “60 Minutes” reports that there has been a noticed increase in sovereign citizen-related violence against police and judges. In light of recent arrests and the actions of men like Chief Paudert, it seems the targets may now be fighting back.
