Us vs. The Only Ones
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
September 6, 2010

Only in the broadest sense will it be Us versus Them when it starts, whatever it may be.

Them is a collective label applied to all who seek to inhibit, infringe or otherwise restrict Liberty on Us.  Them includes the Political Class who do the business of making the laws that injure freedom and Liberty.  Them includes the bureaucrats who implement the laws, and add to the injury through regulation.  Them includes the city inspector who fines your daughter for not having a license for her lemonade stand.  Them includes the official who fines you for not having purchased the required permit for hosting your garage sale.  Them includes much of the Corporate Class who work for their own interests, though often cutting deals with Them for preferential terms.

Finally, Them is represented by LEO, the law enforcement organizations and individuals across the nation who enforce the will of the collective Them at the muzzle of a weapon.  This is where the rubber meets the road.  When They want something done, they use the Only Ones.

David Codrea posts almost daily at War on Guns examples of misconduct by LEO and others in authority.  He coined the moniker of the Only Ones based on the obvious premise to which most of Them ascribe, that LEO and his Masters are the Only Ones responsible enough, trained well enough, patriotic enough, and morally righteous enough to possess and utilize personal arms and dispense violence.

You, Citizen, are not an Only One.

When the criminal politicians in America deign that a Citizen may not do a thing, it is a member of the Only Ones who will be dispatched to enforce compliance.  You will comply, or you will face the full weight of the State and the color of law in your defiance.  Do not pay your income taxes and armed IRS Agents will visit.  Do not pay the fine for failing to buy a Garage Sale permit (which will be assessed at the same time your property tax bill is due) and the Sheriff's department will, one day, come to set you out of your home as the State confiscates your property. 

Resist?  They are striving to be the Only Ones with weapons, and their arsenal is impressive. 

The point is that many of those in the III Community who are preparing for a conflict with Government have not yet properly defined the parameters of the ruckus.  The grumbling from Patriots as they blog, clean their 1911's and buy the next black rifle tends to focus on the individuals currently in Government, especially at the national level.  Patriots grumble about the Judiciary.  Patriots grumble about laws, proposed and on the books.

Of course these people have much for which they must one day be judged.  But any physical conflict between Patriots and Them will be a fight between Patriots and the Only Ones.  No elected official will ever pick up a weapon and wade into a firefight on K Street to defend his ideology.  He will send the Only Ones

The Only Ones consist of LEO from the federal level down to the local.  They are uniformed and sometimes, not.  They are private security contractors hired by Government, as in Katrina.  While a great many of the Only Ones would like us to believe they have parity with military - in my city of 50,000 just a few miles from the DC line our local city police force wears BDU's rather than proper uniforms - the military will likely not be at the initial fight. 

And if Patriots execute their end of the conflict properly, the military and Guard will not enter the fight.  There are many possible scenarios leading up to it.  But Government will almost certainly seek to keep the element of surprise for as long as possible.  The moment military or Guard troops begin to enter cities, suburbs or the countryside, the game is over and Government will have telegraphed their intent.

Instead, Government is more likely to utilize LEO in a nationwide, coordinated effort to arrest and detain certain dangerous civilians.  You know who you are...

If you, Patriots, can not in these moments identify the true enemies of Liberty and engage, the republic will be forever lost to the whims of Them.  In these hours it is not the politicians or the businessmen or even the Liberal citizens who voted these people into power who must be contained. 

It is LEO.  It is the badges and guns who do the work of tyrants.  All of them, whether they are manning Tactical Teams or traffic corners, on duty or off, it is LEO who will take your means of resistance or kill you if you disobey.

Do not put any faith in the Oath Keepers.  Why on earth would any Patriot believe the police officer who today arrests and sends Americans to prison on gun charges, that in the future he will not do so?  His oath to the Constitution is in effect right now, yet he violates it in some manner every day he is on the job.  Sure, it is in the name of public safety or doing his job.  Drugs are bad, m'kay.  Move along, Citizen, you will be beaten if you try to video Officer Friendly.  You may not carry concealed, Citizen, the state legislature said so and I am going to arrest you now.

Afterall, we are the Only Ones...

The Political Class will put the Guard and even active military on the streets in the face of prolonged violence between Patriots and LEO.  Many middle-of-the-road citizens, and every Liberal, will support troops on the street in the face of violence.  Violence is a weapon best threatened, rather than employed...usually.  And as we have seen many times, the majority of troops will occupy their fellow Americans and bring violence upon the name of public safety, of course.

So the only course for the Patriot community is the swift and relentless counter-attack that contains the very real threat posed by LEO.  Patriots must, immediately, convince the population of the Only Ones who chose to be the tools of tyrants by turning their weapons on the public that they should quit this fight.

One thousand Patriots, armed to the teeth with Go Bags in hand, at the courthouse steps in your city or town is an overwhelming and non-violent static command for Them to stand down. 

One thousand Patriots hunting LEO dynamically stands Them down.

The only possibility of success for the Patriot in these hours is to recognize the assault for what it is, the beginning of the end, the final hours of the republic.  The only hope for victory is that Patriots from every nook and cranny of this vast nation immediately gear up and get into the nuts and bolts of Liberty and be rid of the threat.  Patriots must take the fangs and claws from the Political Class.

Every Patriot.  In every corner of the republic, even if your area is relatively quiet.  It will only be a matter of time before they come for you.  This is the time to trust in Leaderless Resistance.

Patriots outnumber LEO by at least 2 to 1.  If LEO sends 3-5 people to arrest a single Patriot, the numbers are in their favor.  Disrupt that advantage and swarm out as was done in Lexington and Concord.  Do not wait to see what happens in other areas.  Move out and secure your AO for Liberty.

Yes, there are those in LEO who will choose to side with Patriots.  There is a larger number who will choose to stay at home with their families, as we saw in Katrina and LA during the riots.  The rest will show up for work and do as they are directed by the folks who sign their checks.

The work of Patriots is well defined and time sensitive.  The window is 48 hours from the first LEO raid on a Patriot.  Patriots must counter and decisively eviscerate the LEO command structure vertically and laterally.  There is no middle ground.  Patriots must stand tall and remind our Countrymen that in America there is no place for anyone who thinks they are the Only Ones.

Never will the words of Mr. Franklin be more poignant...

We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.

Excerpt: There comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate as the only option on the table.  Dare we not offend the sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our midst who are ruining and destroying our republic?  Are we to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin, poverty, tyranny, and death?!

Are we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America?  We ask you, is not our republic worth the risk of being castigated?  Is the soul of our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our lives, and our Sacred Honor?  Have we lost so much of our heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny as the world has never before witnessed?

Excerpt: You are a fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many of their edicts.  In drafting healthcare reform, they use the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and prison if you refuse to buy health insurance! 

How is that not only a degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to Russians, Germans, and the Chinese.  It starts with Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism, Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.

Excerpt: We have a culture of people whose first response to a physical threat is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer.  We have a nation of people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the restaurant – and win!  We have a nation of educators who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and tell! 

We have a nation of people so removed from the food chain that many would starve to death if the local supermarket closed.  We have a nation of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most of the people in the world every day, and as a result we have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common sense.

Excerpt: The Bill of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately ours as human beings.  These rights may not be taken from us.  These rights were written in plain language so that no clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was possible.  These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or infringed.  Any attempt to do so is a violation of the relationship between Man and Creator. 

Every narrowing, restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is simply a violation of our natural rights.

We hold that every violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government, and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.  Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of Liberty and humanity.

Liberalism is Treason & Tyranny

Jus ad bellum: There is a moral obligation on the part of any Patriot who decides to engage in violence, before you cross the Rubicon and plunge yourself and perhaps your republic into the horrors of civil war.  Killing an enemy is always just and proper in the face of an existential threat.  Whether the Liberal comes to your home to kill you, or sends armed Government thugs to kill you, or to interfere with your ability to provide for your family, he poses the same existential threat to you and your family as does the liberal who pulled that lever in the voting booth.  Dead is dead, whether by violence or poverty and starvation caused by Liberal policies, and both are morally sound justifications for war.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic, and must be marginalized if America is to survive.  Patriots must step to this challenge and risk the wrath of the Politically Correct, and do the work that must be done to honor our Fathers.  Liberals must be stopped, at any cost." - Kerodin

"No, I apologize for nothing.  I know the truth, regardless of what may be in the press.  I know that when I stand before Saint Peter, I will be granted passage.  If I am ever granted audience with God, I have nothing to fear.  I have lived the life He chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." - Kerodin

"No man looks forward into life when young and can imagine for himself the life I have lived.  But I am better for it.  I have been places never anticipated.  I have had experiences never dreamed.  I have met people who would have never otherwise been in my social or professional circle.  I have, many times, leaned upon the words of Winston Churchill - 'When you are going through Hell, keep going!'" - Kerodin

My family continues to promote my values where I can not.  They are Patriots.  If you ever meet my wife, you will meet the most loyal wife and Patriot in America.  She is brave, brilliant, and bold.  We fight Liberal stupidity together through the First Amendment.  Laws change - and one day I will stand with her again in the Second Amendment fight that she carries on when I must stand aside."  - Kerodin

Current political leaders are only the face of the problem confronting America today.  The underlying cancer eating the American Soul is Liberalism.  But for your Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be elected to office.

It is not sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at the polls.  Liberalism must be defeated in our society and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill the republic.

Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the nation and our Constitution.  Why should any business owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for politicians who further ruin the company?!

The Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied entry into your social circle.  These stupid people are responsible for the insanity that affects everything from your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your children.  Why would you break bread with them, when they are the reason your bread costs too much?  Why would any parent permit them access to their children, when they are responsible for ruining your child's future?


This book may not be for you.

If you consider yourself to be a Liberal or Progressive, go away. You are not permitted to buy this book. This book is written by patriotic Americans for patriotic Americans. This is a discussion among ourselves, and if you are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal politicians,
(Of the genus Stupidus Liberalis)  you are not invited to participate.

First, we will demonstrate that all politicians, judges, and government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act, the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the United States of America.

Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and special interest groups that support Liberal politicians and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming legislation, et cetera, are committing Treason against the United States of America.

Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature of the politician is known to the public—or programs are equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid and support to a Traitor.

Excerpt: The five most expensive parts of our national budget are:

1.      Social Security

2.      Medicare

3.      Medicaid

4.      Defense

5.      Interest on the National Debt

Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are wholly unconstitutional and brought to us by Liberals. 

Number 5 is wholly a result of numbers 1, 2 and 3!
