The Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. 


Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilised nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Greek Solidarity Protesters Interrupt Merkel Speech

Nazi Merkel, Lagarde, IMF, EU banksters circling the drain - and they know it  

TELESUR TV
07/05/2015

Protesters chanted “No” in Greek, urging voters in tomorrow’s referendum to refuse the austerity measures that creditors seek to impose on Greece.

A speech by German Chancellor Angela Merkel was interrupted Saturday by a group of anti-austerity protesters who shouted “Oxi” meaning “No” in Greek, voicing their oppostion to proposals, which seek to maintain austerity measures, ahead of Sunday’s referendum. 

As Merkel was about to begin her speech at an event in Beriln celebrating the 70th anniversary of her Christian Democratic Union Party, demonstrators blocked the stage while chanting “Oxi.” Security was quick to respond and escort the group out of the hall. 


Merkel’s response to the protesters was also quick. “In order to balance things once again, we say “Nai,” she said, referring to the Greek word for “Yes.” 


Ripping a page out of the Bush/Obama playbook
of terror Merkel still believes she can tough it out
Her response was met with applause by her fellow party members. Greece has been on edge with many groups holding demonstrations either in favor of austerity measures or against them ahead of Sunday’s referendum. 

George Pittas, a writer for Workers Solidarity newspaper and a member of ANTARSYA, a coalition of the anti-capitalist leftist, told teleSUR English that Friday’s rally in Syntagma parliament Square drew thousands of people who were angry at what they saw as unbalanced media coverage and pressure from employers to vote “yes.” 


“People were shouting ‘No’ with all their might in yesterday’s rally,” Pittas said, “No means no to austerity as it did in the past years. In workplaces the ‘No’ Campaign is huge.” 


The symbolic protests in Berlin came as Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis had accused Europe of “spreading terror” in Greece ahead of the country's historic referendum Sunday. "Why have they forced us to close the banks? To frighten people. And when it's about spreading terror, that is known as terrorism," Varoufakis told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo on Saturday. 




Meanwhile, in a surprising compromising comment, the German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble, who has been a staunch critic of a “no” vote in the referendum, has said “it is clear that we will not leave the [Greek] people in the lurch.” 

He also asserted that the referendum would be on whether the Greek people wanted to hold on to the euro or be “temporarily without it."




Several economists have suggested that for a period of time Greece could return to its national currency the drachma in order to recover and then return to the euro without existing the euro zone or “Grexit”. 

In his interview with El Mundo, Varoufakis also said Europe will not let Greece go under as there was so much on stake for the creditors and for the European Union. 




“If Greece crashes, a trillion euros (the equivalent of Spain's GDP) will be lost,” said Varoufakis. “It's too much money and I don't believe Europe could allow it.”

July 4 Terrorist Attack On U.S. Soil "A Legitimate Threat" - Officials

Cowardice reigns supreme in America on 4th Of July: "Keep 'Em Scared, Keep 'Em Stupid" MSM hysterically hypes "terror" threat from "lone wolves" providing cover for Obama criminals to crack down on domestic dissent, making a mockery of "Independence Day" as real terrorists reside in White House    

AGENCIES
07/05/2008

U.S. intelligence officials and lawmakers are worried that chatter about a terrorist attack on U.S. soil this Fourth of July may be more than just talk.


Fox "News," CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS spew bogus "terror"
warnings to a cowering American public - 4th Of July 
should simply be cancelled as it is now meaningless in
"Land Of The Free, Home Of The Brave"
The FBI has arrested at least 10 U.S. citizens in three weeks who were plotting various attacks on the homeland on behalf of the Islamic State group, and the Department of Homeland Security issued a joint bulletin with the FBI last week putting local law enforcement agencies across the country on heightened alert. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re sitting here a week from today talking about an attack over the weekend in the United States,” former CIA Deputy Director Michael J. Morell said Monday on “CBS This Morning.” “That’s how serious this is.”


Mr. Morell said he was more concerned than usual about the alert partly because of the growing number of people in the U.S. who align themselves spontaneously and via the Internet with the Islamic State group, also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL.


“I’m worried about this one,” he said.

Most U.S. recruits who have heeded the siren calls of the radical extremist organisation planned to kill soldiers at military facilities and attempted to assail law enforcement officers. These calls often are proliferated through social media messages, an online magazine and other Internet-based propaganda. Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, 116 homegrown jihadi plots have been uncovered in the U.S. and more than half of them have been in the past three years, said Rep. Michael T. McCaul, Texas Republican and chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security.


In the FBI’s latest arrest, a New Jersey man was charged Monday with conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State group and trying to persuade a witness to lie to the FBI


Look out Americans, the "lone wolves" are
coming to get you!  Be afraid… be VERY
AFRAID!
The man’s brother traveled to the Middle East in May to join the terrorist group and was arrested in Jordan, authorities said.

“This is not bin Laden with couriers now. This is a new generation of terrorists using the Internet in a very savvy way to attack the West and also get in the homes and in the basements in the United States to radicalize individuals and then call them up as sleeper cells to attack Americans,” Mr. McCaul told “Fox News Sunday.”

Mr. McCaul said there has been an uptick in “chatter” about possible attacks over the July Fourth holiday weekend. 


Although Americans ought to enjoy parades and other events, he said, they should “remain vigilant during these celebrations.”

Though the Islamic State propaganda machine hasn’t had much success in inspiring lone-wolf attacks in the U.S., its followers have committed much more mayhem in other countries, most recently in a series of attacks Friday in Kuwait, Tunisia and France.




A suicide bomber sympathetic to the Islamic State attacked one of Kuwait City’s most prominent Shiite mosques, killing 27 worshippers and injuring more than 200. 


"Terrorists hiding in your closets! In your garbage disposals!
Your pets and first graders are being recruited by ISIS!"
A gunman killed 38 people, at least 18 of them Britons, in a rampage on a Tunisian beach frequented by European tourists. 

In France, a Muslim beheaded his boss, took a selfie with the severed head and then unsuccessfully tried to use a truck to blow up a U.S.-owned chemical warehouse.



British Prime Minister David Cameron responded to the Tunisia attack by calling the Islamic State group an “existential threat.”

A war against the Islamic State, he said, would be “the struggle of our generation, and we have to fight it with everything we can.”

In the Daily Telegraph, he specified that this means becoming “more intolerant of intolerance” among Muslim preachers, “rejecting anyone whose views condone the Islamist extremist narrative and create the conditions for it to flourish.”




Public schools and other official bodies would take steps starting this week to “identify and tackle” radicalization, he said.


"Here they come! Gonna blow up your barbecue! Poison
your hot dogs! RUN! HIDE!"
The Islamic State issued a “call to arms” for attacks during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which began June 17 and ends July 17. 

The Islamic State group is also celebrating the first anniversary of establishing a caliphate, or an Islamic government, led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The coincidence of the timings is another reason Mr. Morell said these threats may be likelier than usual to result in an attack.


In addition, analysts note, the Islamic State looks more than ever like the “strong horse” in Osama bin Laden’s formulation.

Fox News and CNN "reporters"
“Radical Islamists with a propensity to engage in terror have always been embedded in the country, but they have not heeded a call to action until now,” said Jeff Addicott, director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University in Texas. 

“This is because ISIS is able to inspire them because of its success in establishing an actual caliphate.”

Nevertheless, local law enforcement in the U.S. remains on guard.



“We don’t want to scare the public or send out false alarms, but we do know that the terrorist groups tend to capitalize on holidays, on events, on something that would make their issue more in the forefront, so if we were to have an event somewhere occur on the Fourth of July, that would play into their strategy,” said Donny Youngblood, sheriff of California’s Kern County and president of the Major County Sheriffs’ Association.

Citing national security concerns, Mr. Youngblood declined to detail what the FBI and Homeland Security bulletin said or what specific preparations his team was making.




Law enforcement departments will respond to potential threats in a variety of ways, said Sheriff Dave Mahoney of Dane County, Wisconsin.

For example, many deputies who work for the Dane County Sheriff’s Office are part of a regional response team and are trained to react to bomb threats. 


"Al Shamob divers have been spotted in the Lincoln Memorial
Reflecting Pool!"
Those deputies have specialty skills and are trained to work with explosive ordnance devices or use their tactical intelligence skills to mitigate a threat, he said. That dual-purpose team of deputies also has the equipment necessary to react to a potential terrorist attack, Sheriff Mahoney said. “They may be on patrol, but they’ll have their equipment to respond to whatever that specialty need is,” he said. 



“Some agencies have a dedicated team, but more and more today it’s becoming difficult, you know, unless you’re a large metropolitan agency, to have dedicated resources.”




Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said federal law-enforcement agencies issued the bulletin to say the department was “encouraging all law enforcement to be vigilant and prepared. We will also adjust security measures, seen and unseen, as necessary to protect the American people.”


Former CIA Director Michael V. Hayden said the best form of homeland defense is through an aggressive offense against Islamist terrorist groups in the Middle East. “What we’re going to have to do is disrupt the ISIS narrative,” Mr. Hayden told Fox News. “Right now, they look as if because they’ve been so successful on the battlefield, it looks like they are acting as the will and hand of God. I think we need to turn that around."


"We need to inflict battlefield defeats on them in their homeland, so that they’re not nearly as attractive to these kinds of folks globally,” he said.
