Has The Revolution Already Begun?
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
The amygdala (pronounced ah-MIG-dah-lah)
is that little walnut sized "thingy" resting near the bottom of the
human brain that warns us when danger is near. Its sorta like a burglar
alarm for your life.
Ever have those tiny little hairs on the
back of your neck stand up? Ever have goose bumps? Ever get the
feeling that you are being watched by someone, or some thing that does
not have your, ahem, best interests in mind? Ever have the persistent
feeling that all is NOT well and eminent danger is lurking in some
quarter not yet identified? Well, unless your amygdala is broken, or has
simply atrophied, that teeny-tiny little mass of nuclei buried deep in
the anterior inferior temporal lobe of the brain. is where ALL the above
I like to think we humans developed the amygdala
about the time we decided to climb down out of the trees and live in
holes in the ground and the sides of mountains and cliffs we later came
to call caves. I'm no anthropologists or biologist, or any other kind
of "ologist," so I have no clue when the human amygdala became standard
equipment. So, I'm just winging it here.
Still -- smart
people pay attention to the warnings from their amygdala. A great
number of those who didn't -- aren't here any more. And a
disproportionate number of those who still don't today, will not be with
us much longer.
It is the way of things.
My amygdala has
been virtually bouncing off the inside of my skull for well over a week
now. I can almost hear it humming much like a plucked bow string of an
Something is going on that presents a danger to
my person. IF it is what I THINK it is, then by extension, you, too,
are in danger.
Allow me to deliberately digress for a moment, or
two: The Cliven Bundy Affair in Nevada recently. That whole thing was
the dumbest operation yet devised by government brain-trusts in
It was not!
Who could NOT have foreseen the reaction by Bundy's family, his neighbors, and freedom loving American across America.
The answer is -- the idiots in DC who planned this donnybrook, IF, of course, that is what REALLY happened.
has been suggested that the raid at Bundy's ranch was purposely
designed to cause the chaos that ensured so as to provide the government
planners a truer picture of the response they can expect from the
American people when they, the Marxist tyrants in Washington, finally
bring the legendary "iron curtain" down around America.
Washington had ANY doubt that government dictatorial overreach would be
met with the same level of violence from the American people, then all
doubt should have been removed from their bureaucratic minds when
throngs of American citizen militias, armed to the teeth, began arriving
and squaring off with the government's domestic armed forces.
tension was so high that a single shot, even fired accidentally, would
have set off a firefight locally and a nationwide rebellion. I don't
think the public yet understands just how close we came to yet another
war of revolution in America during those tense days in Nevada.
the American people are, like that humming bow string I mentioned
above, strung about as tight as they have ever been. It won't take much
for then to utter an oath, grab their semi-automatic rifle, all the
ammo they can carry, and head for the swamps and woods and form up into
organized resistance. Many groups of citizens have already
"formed-up." They are simply awaiting orders from headquarters. (And NO, I don't know who, what, and where headquarters is. That is by design, I feel sure.)
the moment, America resembles that duck sitting placidly on the waters
of the old mill trace. On the surface that duck is quiet, serene,
subdued -- while beneath the surface, the duck is paddling like hell.
Mainstream Media is deliberately NOT covering the most important story
on the planet today. Why? Because they are owned and controlled -- lock
stock, and ink barrel -- by the Marxist tyrants of the Obama Regime.
They are the willful ally of the Marxist government in the US and they
volunteer their propaganda efforts in support of the communist efforts
to destroy America.
"It’s this bias that President Obama
has come to depend on to advance his radical agenda. With the help of a
very eager and compliant press willing to do their bidding, the White
House controls talking points, advances their left wing agenda, and
molds public opinion through propaganda disguised as news." -- SOURCE: https://stopthepropaganda.com/?utm_source=CNS&utm_medium=slideout&utm_campaign=stopthepropaganda
would think, the government would allow for a cooling off period before
they tried another hostile takeover of private property. You WOULD
think that -- and you would be wrong.
Consider the following: "Texas
officials are raising alarm that the Bureau of Land Management, on the
heels of its dust-up with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, might be eyeing a
massive land grab in northern Texas.
issue are thousands of acres of land on the Texas side of the Red
River, along the border between Texas and Oklahoma. Officials recently
have raised concern that the BLM might be looking at claiming 90,000
acres of land as part of the public domain.
said it is merely in the “initial stages of developing options for
management of public lands,” as part of a “transparent process with
several opportunities for public input.” -- SOURCE: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/22/republicans-warn-blm-eyeing-land-grab-along-texas-oklahoma-border/
Washington REALLY want to MESS with Texas? Of all the bone-headed
decisions to come out of Washington the last five years THIS one has to
rank right up there at the top.
Look. Texas does not NEED the
US to survive. That state is self-sufficient. The fact is, they are
doing the US a favor by remaining in the union.
And lest we forget, Texans WILL fight, no matter the odds. If BLM sends an armed force into the Red River area, you can bet they will be met with armed resistance.
and just a few steps north lies Oklahoma with some 50,000 militia
members who love freedom. And though those "Sooners" happily pick at
their southern neighbors, they will rush to their side immediately
should they be needed.
More and more we are seeing the Gadsden flag being displayed, in all its glory, on more and more homes around America. You know, the "Don't Tread On Me" flag."
Gadsden flag is an historical American flag with a yellow field
depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. It was created by
Christopher Gadsden. Gadsden was named the Lt. Governor of South
Carolina in 1778.
Gadsden was the principal leader of the South Carolina Patriot movement in the American Revolution. "Gadsden
was an American patriot if ever there was one. He led Sons of Liberty
in South Carolina starting in 1765, and was later made a colonel in the
Continental Army. In 1775 he was in Philadelphia representing his home
state in the Continental Congress." -- SOURCE: http://www.gadsden.info/Christopher.html
South Carolina is my native state, I want to be sure my fellow
"Sandlappers" get the credit due them for their efforts at securing
freedom for America then and now.)
You can feel it in
the air. Americans sense a coming fight, an internal struggle to
restore the America our Forefathers left in our keeping. Many are just
coming to understand the gravity of the mistake voters made in 2008 and
again in 2012. It has nearly destroyed the country and wreaked havoc
around the globe.
But, the federal government, through
their mindless, power-hungry antics, may be opening a doorway through
which freedom loving Americans will be able to retake that which is
rightfully theirs/ours and restore the republic to its constitutional
Just remember the duck mentioned above. We may
appear placid and serene, but just beneath the surface we're working
like heck to save our country.
