"Our own government has become our enemy." So said Pinal County (Arizona)
Sheriff Paul Babeu.
"Babeu told CNSNews.com that rather than help law enforcement in Arizona
stop the hundreds of thousands of people who come into the United States
illegally, the federal government is targeting the state and its law
"'What's very troubling is the fact that at a time when we in law
enforcement and our state need help from the federal government, instead of
sending help they put up billboard-size signs warning our citizens to stay
out of the desert in my county because of dangerous drug and human smuggling
and weapons and bandits and all these other things and then, behind that,
they drag us into court with the ACLU.' Babeu said."
The Arizona Sheriff was then quoted as saying: "Our own government has
become our enemy and is taking us to court at a time when we need help."

Sheriff Babeu is not the only one who believes that our own federal
government has become our enemy. Writing for Investor's Business Daily,
attorney Ernest Christian and economist Gary Robbins co-authored a July 30,
2010, column entitled "Will Washington's Failures Lead To Second American
Christian and Robbins write, "People are asking, 'Is the [federal]
government doing us more harm than good? Should we change what it does and
the way it does it?'
"Pruning the power of government begins with the imperial presidency.
"Too many overreaching laws give the president too much discretion to make
too many open-ended rules controlling too many aspects of our lives. There's
no end to the harm an out-of-control president can do."
See the column at:
But it's not just an imperial presidency we need to worry about; and it
certainly did not originate with Barack Obama--although he has certainly
accelerated the pace of this federal aggression. For all intents and
purposes, the last four Presidencies have been imperialist in nature. In
other words, we have endured at least 22 years of federal imperialism,
encompassing both Republican and Democrat Presidential administrations. But
it has also been Republican and Democrat congresses (along with a compliant
federal judiciary) that have assisted and facilitated this out-of-control
federal imperialism. In other words, folks: the entire federal system is now
illegitimate and broken!
The federal government has become a monstrous leech that has affixed itself
to the underbelly of the American republic and is sucking its lifeblood out
with a vengeance. It has increased its surveillance of the American
citizenry to the point that--for all intents and purposes--we now live in a
Soviet-style, East Bloc society: our phone calls, emails, cellular
transmissions, etc., are being feverishly monitored; our financial
transactions are scrutinized; this new national (socialist) healthcare
system is nothing more than modern-day slavery; our manufacturing jobs have
been deliberately outsourced to the point that America's real unemployment
numbers are around 20% (Source: economist Donald McAlvany); the
international bankers and their collaborators in DC could be described as
the ultimate crime syndicate without much fear of hyperbole; the federal
government's control and manipulation of our public schools has resulted in
the fact that the United States now has the most expensive and least
productive education system in the industrialized world; and now it is
teaming up with the ACLU (not to mention thousands of Mexican gang members,
drug dealers, human traffickers, rapists, and murderers) to fight the State
of Arizona for its attempt to simply enforce the law. Yes, I would say that
should classify the federal government as our enemy, all right.
If you doubt DC's arrogance, I challenge you to watch the following video of
Congressman Pete Stark (D-CA), who said, "The federal government, yes, can
do most anything." With congressmen such as this, does anyone wonder why the
federal government has grown into such a monster?
See the congressman's remarks at:
Christian and Robbins could be right when they suggest that it might be time
for a second American revolution! I might even argue, in many respects, that
revolution has already begun. State governors and legislators across the
country are increasingly frustrated with DC's arrogance and bullying, and
are pushing back. Jan Brewer and her brave Arizonans are not the only State
to start drawing a line in the sand. Millions of freedom-loving citizens in
these states have about reached the boiling point. I really don't think it
would take much of a spark to set this country ablaze with the "Spirit of
'76" all over again.
Remember, it was the states that created the federal government--not the
other way around. And the states never surrendered their authority or
autonomy, not to Washington, D.C., or to any other power. I don't care what
anyone says to the contrary; the states retained their Declaration status,
that they were "Free and Independent" AFTER the US Constitution was enacted
and the federal government formed in 1787. If the framers intended to make
America "one nation," meaning one national government absent the features of
federalism requiring State independence and power to serve as a check and
balance against the imperialist tendencies of a central government, why were
the states not dissolved when the Constitution was adopted? The states
maintained independence for the very reason that Arizona and other states
today are resisting federal encroachment, or in the case of illegal
immigration, inaction: to arrest federal failure!
Therefore, when Sheriff Babeu said that the federal government "has become
our enemy," he was 100% correct. Now it's time for the American people as a
whole to not only recognize the enemy, but to recognize the solution:
enlightened and energized states willing to fight for their independence!
And if that means another American revolution, so be it!
