What Veterans Can Do For Constitutional Regime Change

Time for Veterans to Acknowledge We Are in a Two Front War

by  Mike Harris                                                              edited by  Jim W. Dean


Americans Are United in the Occupy Protests

Across America Citizens and Veterans alike watch in horror and disbelief while police forces across the country inflict violence against peaceful protestors.

These college age kids are our children, the veterans our brothers, and the old folks our parents.

We watch as the Main Stream Media attempts to dilute and manipulate the message and make false claims that the demonstrators have no message.

The demonstrators have a message and it is very clear. They are saying: We want justice for all.

We want the Wall Street Bankers who have crippled and robbed our country, robbed all of us and robbed future generations brought to justice. We want the bankers tried and held accountable for their crimes against us.

We want clean and fair government, not government for sale to the highest bidder.

Wall Street Bankers have stolen all of our money; we can no longer afford to influence our elected officials, because the Wall Street Bankers have driven the price to own a politician through the roof.

We Want the Banking System Totally Rebuilt

We want an end to the Federal Reserve Bank. We want the US Treasury to do it’s Constitutionally mandated function.

We want our jobs back, it is no longer acceptable for CEO’s to ship our jobs to China and off shore production, just to to make their bonus and inflate the value of their stock options.

We want a justice system that is fair to all people. We want police that assist and protect the public, not the iron boot of fascism on our throat if we object to the violation of our 4th Amendment rights when catching an airplane.

We want the Patriot Act repealed and the US Constitution restored to the Supreme Law of the Land.

We want the Border secured and illegal aliens returned to their homelands. We want our schools, churches,  and neighborhoods free of drugs and criminals that molest our children.

We want an honest and truthful investigation of the treason of 9-11! We want the real perpetrators punished for these crimes against us and our Country.

Ten Years in Afghanistan - A Waste of Money and Lives

We want the illegal wars to stop; we want our troops brought home. We know the War on Terror is a fraud, like all the other Wars the government wages, the War on Drugs, The War on Poverty,  et al.

We want the America we know and love, returned to We the People.

We are telling the government that we are withdrawing our consent to be governed until we have a government that respects us.

We want a government that honors the US Constitution, not the fascist document mis-named “The Patriot Act”.

We want to live in a Nation that looks out for it’s own citizens first, before it tries to police the whole world.

Below is a video of what one brave group of citizens and veterans has done to stop the abuse by the police in the Occupy America Movement.

I take my hat off to these brave men who have the stones to use their Second Amendment rights to protect the First Amendment Rights of the Demonstrators in the Occupy Phoenix Movement.


I strongly suggest that Veterans everywhere do as this valiant group has done. They put on their BDU’s and they picked up their weapons and they openly protected the demonstrators from any potential violence from the Phoenix, AZ Police Department.

We Need Our Veterans Protecting Us Here at Home - From the Enemies That We Have Here

If there are other veterans in America who support the First Amendment, then emulate this example. First become a body of men, there is strength in numbers, the more men, the better.

I would be cautious to attempt this as an individual.

Be sure to check the laws in the jurisdiction where you plan to demonstrate: DO NOT BREAK THE LAW!!

These men are exercising their Second Amendment Rights to protect the First Amendments Rights of others.

This is exactly as the founders intended when faced by a brutal and oppressive government.

I do not advocate violence, or any lawlessness, but armed men will not be assaulted and brutalized by the thugs who are masquerading as police.

Please note in this video that the armed U.S. Military Veterans place themselves between the peaceful demonstrators and the potentially violent police. If this model is followed across the country we will observe the police violence quickly stop.

Dear American Police - We Have Not Fought Overseas to Have Our Families Attacked at Home, by Police. And If It Doesn't Stop, You Will be Hearing From Us.

The police are trained to deal with street criminals, the police are not trained to deal with Veterans trained by the US Military, who are the very best Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen, in the entire world.

This action is a game changer, and one that will force our corrupt and broken government to hear the message of the We the People.

It does not matter if you identify with Occupy Wall Street or with the Tea Party, the problem that all citizens of the country face is the same.

Let us use this opportunity to work together to purge our government of the corruption that Wall Street has used to infect Washington DC.

Let us return to our Constitutional Government in the truest sense, and let us make America great again. Let us create an America that We the People can be proud of!!

    I do not believe that “illegal”(or, as I prefer to say, undocumented)immigrants are the problem. However, I do believe that fascist suppression of free speech, the war on “terror”, and the Federal Reserve are problems. It is good that you point out the corporations that are corrupting our politicians.

    • Mike Harris  November 3, 2011 at 9:12 pm

      Hello Laura,
      Thank you for your comment.
      35 million illegal aliens are a problem when their presence drives down wages and displaces American workers in this era of high unemployment.. Not to mention the stress they place on all public systems and government services. Just look at the effects the illegals have on every county budget within the USA. I feel we should take care of our own people first.

      Thank you Mike for your paragraph. It is the absolute truth. We have our own, living in boxes under bridges and in homeless shelters, while the illegals live in gov’t subsidized housing! It is a shame before God for our military to have to live like that, in fact, for anyone to have to live like that. God blessed this nation at one time, Man has seen fit to take it apart piece by piece for their own personal greed and pleasure.

      I am so grateful to these veterans in Pheonix and I hope they organize nationwide, quickly before the gov’t pulls another rabbit out of the hat on us!! It well may be the answer to alot of prayers!

      Kindest Regards,

      This is the good news. We can fix this. We need to take control of our destiny as a nation.

      God Bless you

    So now the hired thugs posing as occupiers have started vandalizing and provoking a police crackdown and chaos. How convenient for them to demonize the movement and justify their brutality. True protesters need to be vigilant and capture these posers and expose them for who they are. Scott Walker thought of doing that in Madison this spring it was the beginning of the end for him.

    I’m still wondering where the “Oathkeepers” are. Is it true they have been inflitrated like the Tea Party? Has anyone read/heard of their presence at OWS anywhere? Any outrage at the widespread violence against peaceful protestors?

    • JC  November 3, 2011 at 5:45 am

      They claim to support OWS. I’m not sure whether OathKeepers is a ‘flash in the pan’ or a ‘flush in the bowl’ but they seem to have done very little since their founding.

    • K  November 3, 2011 at 9:06 am

      Thanks JC. I’m very disappointed and hate to admit I’m growing very suspicious. The only tireless “action” I’ve seen is the request for donations and blowing hot air. I’m now wondering if my donations to support our troops were a “flush in the bowl”. I hope not; but, actions certainly speak louder than words.

    • JC  November 3, 2011 at 5:43 pm

      Hello K,

      The problem with groups like ‘oathkeepers’ is that to do the job they claim needs be done they must ‘arrest, try, and punish’ those who actually control the police, and armed forces. Very few people are willing to take that on as it requires a penetration proof organization that is secret in action, visible in results, or it will be arrested and charged in short order by the establishment.

      Remember – whether it is the human body or a human organization it will organize to eradicate a viral infection.


    • K  November 3, 2011 at 6:26 pm

      Well said JC.


  5. rgalton  November 2, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    It is only when the people try to take back control from those who are supposed to be their servants, not masters, that they realise just how little freedom they infact have.

    Those currently in control of the US, who run the Federal Reserve and the banking system, will not concede power without much bloodshed, they are beyond evil and they have at their disposal immense power and resources.

  6. DA white  November 2, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    You left out the greatest strength, the right to vote, if enough people vote and send a message of unity, the politicians will listen.

    • Jon Jon  November 2, 2011 at 5:55 pm

      white get a life….. “THE VOTE” is dead meat………….

    • Mike Harris  November 2, 2011 at 6:19 pm

      Hello DA White and thanks for your comment.

      The facts about voting in the USA today are: the candidate with the most money wins 96% of the time. This is irrefutable evidence of the systemic problems that we suffer in the USA today.

      Best Regards,

      Mike HArris

    • JC  November 3, 2011 at 5:40 am

      The game is rigged: http://www.blackboxvoting.org/

      The vote has no meaning if politicians don’t follow your will, or don’t act in the best interests of the greater good anyway.

  7. Kathy  November 2, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    For the first time in years I breathed a sigh of relief and feel safe again after reading this. God Bless our Military. Thank You! Thank You!

  8. Jerry  November 2, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    Can’t believe this is happening in America: armed ex-military men in between protestors and the police to protect the 99% against the horrible police attacks with their so-called non-lethal weapons, trashing and stealing property. Unthinkable here in Europe. You ex-militairy are an example for the world. That’s what the people Greece need. You are sending a strong message to the out of control government.

    This Black man gets it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5bpw5Oku98

    • DaveL  November 2, 2011 at 3:46 pm

      I’m not sure I understand the signifigance of “this Black man” with respect to the video or the “movement”.

    • Jon Jon  November 2, 2011 at 4:09 pm

      Dave L
      This black man gets it ….means ….
      he is a black man (as opposed to a white man) … and he understands…. just watch the vid ……

    • DaveL  November 2, 2011 at 4:23 pm

      I did “watch the vid” and have seen it several times before sans the “introduction” by “this black man”. How about “this veteran gets it”. What else am I missing?

    • Jon Jon  November 2, 2011 at 5:10 pm

      your not missing anything Dave just the way some people speak…….means nothing …….
      however you are correct “this veteran gets it”….move on now and support this mission of reprieve..for the citizens wanting to make a contituional stand for their rights…….this truely is an awakening …..soooo allll aboard that goin aboard …….
      Also @ JT Ready…..have heard of you and do support …..are you aware that there are 500 thousand plus homeless Veterans in the US alone ……some of these men and woman just need three squares and a cot ….and are ready willing and able to help this cause ……this mission …..Good Luck and the people are on your side ……..rock on brother ……

    • DaveL  November 2, 2011 at 5:51 pm

      @ Jon Jon, “the way some people speak” is an indication of the way some people THINK. While I am “onboard” with the concept/action of the video, I am “wondering out loud” if there is another agenda being “draped in the flag and second ammendment here”? WE don’t need race baiters/haters “on our side” regardless of the “cover story”!

    • Jon Jon  November 2, 2011 at 5:59 pm

      Holy fork Dave …..”JT Ready is a white man he gets it” …….does this mean anything to you …..get a forking grip man…….

  10. JT Ready  November 2, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    The U.S. Border Guard deployed an urban combat trained security squad to the Occupy Phoenix rally today as armed peace keepers and legal observers. Border Rangers who patrol the border took a non-political stance to defend peaceful assembly and free speech of all citizens by exercising our right to keep and bear arms. Phoenix Police units were on scene also keeping the peace. Our founding fathers and founding mothers knew full well that the 2nd Amendment is what protects all our other amendments from tyranny. The U.S.B.G. protected the rights of all parties involved. Thousands of veterans are contacting us now.

    • DaveL  November 2, 2011 at 3:29 pm

      Has to be some of the BEST “news” I’ve heard in a long time.

  11. DaveL  November 2, 2011 at 2:13 pm

    AMEN BROTHER. ” Let us return to our Constitutional Government in the truest sense.” Great article and review of OUR primary objections/demands. “Take notice cops”, your choice of whom and what you “serve” is about to acquire a “level of urgency” you may not have anticipated clearly, or realistically.

    What happens when “that badge” is no longer considered as “authority” or a “stop sign” by an increasingly pissed-off, and GROWING number of citizens?

  12. Mike Harris  November 2, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    Jon Jon, Check again, the link has been repaired.

    • Jon Jon  November 2, 2011 at 1:49 pm

      Yah thanks Harris …did so…..
      Very forking impressive…from this view ……

    What Veterans Can Do For Constitutional Regime Change?

    Stand in solidarity with those who bravely are doing so today. When the police make that unforgivable mistake, they can be a witness or unfortunate recipient. Then there will be no question of why the military stepped in to remove the problem, problems or rouge leaders.

  14. Bob Loblaw Jr  November 2, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    It’s funny they can endlessly spy and harass law abiding citizens BUT they can’t seem to do a goddamn thing about thousands of gangsters and dope pushers that run rampant. It’s funny that ordinary citizens all of a sudden have no rights.. BUT the rights of gangsters, thieves, murderers, rapists, and molesters are scrupulously guarded.

    Strange that.
