Constitutional BAR attorneys are gaslighting Americans

gaslightIn December last year attorney Stewart Rhodes’ organization Oathkeepers released a new documentary called Midnight Ride – when rogue politicians call for martial law.  It was based on a book written by attorney Edwin Vieira titled By Tyranny out of Necessity.  This documentary is a perfect example of gaslighting. The term gaslighting was coined after the movie Gaslight which was released in 1944. In the film the husband relentlessly denies the reality his wife is experiencing; making her doubt her own perceptions and sanity.

Gaslighting is a form of emotional abuse where the abuser manipulates situations repeatedly to trick the victim into distrusting his or her own memory and perceptions. Gaslighting makes it very likely that victims will believe whatever their abusers tell them regardless as to their own experience of the situation.

Midnight Ride – When Rogue Politicians Call for Martial Law represents one of the more egregious examples of intentional misdirection being inflicted on trusting Americans. In the video they demonstrate that since 9/11 and the passage of the Patriot Act, the ‘government’ (who they refer to as “rogue politicians”) has been implementing unconstitutional martial law policies due to the national emergency known as the War on Terror and that the source of many of these policies is the Executive Branch’s Department of Homeland Security.  Of course they don’t mention the fact that our current fascist version of “Homeland Security” was made in Israel and paid for by America’s worst enemy AIPAC. They also don’t mention the fact that Israel’s Mossad was responsible for 9/11 in the first place, according to US Army War College veteran and Jew Alan Sobrosky.

Midnight Ride demonstrated that the Department of Homeland Security is responsible for the creation of a police state and that law enforcement has been trained to treat the American people as “enemies of the state”, which is true.

The documentary features multiple men expressing their opinions that the United States Constitution has no provision for Presidential ‘rule by necessity’ or ‘war and emergency powers’ authority. This is where gaslighting comes in big time. The fact that emergency powers have been in place since 1933 (for more than 80 years) was officially disclosed in a major Senate Report (93-549) back in 1973. Attorneys Stewart Rhodes and Edwin Vieira are either incredibly uninformed or they are intentionally keeping their followers in the dark. Either way they are not trustworthy. 

Here are some quotes from Senate Report 93-549:

Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency.

The Special Committee on the Termination of the National Emergency was created to examine the consequences of terminating the declared states of national emergency that now prevail . . .  In accordance wit this mandate, the Special Committee – in conjunction with the Executive branch, expert constitutional authorities, as well as former high officials of this Government is now engaged in a detailed study to determine the most reasonable ways to restore normalcy to the operations of our Government.

Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communications; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens. 

In his first important official act, Roosevelt proclaimed a National Bank Holiday on the basis of the 1917 Trading With the Enemy Act . . . [which made American citizens the “enemy” during a declared war or national emergency.]

During the implementation of Roosevelt’s national emergency, American citizens were classified as enemies of the state to justify FDR’s gold confiscation and as long as the national emergency remains in place US citizens are considered enemies.

Researcher Dr. Eugene Schroder did a thorough investigation of emergency powers and in the early 90’s prepared a special report. Using the government’s own documents he proved that the Constitution has been effectively set aside since 1933 and explained that during a national emergency the American people are “enemies of the state”. Twelve presidents, both Democrat and Republican, have used emergency powers non-stop ever since to regulate our daily lives without the inconvenience of Congressional approval. The definition of “emergencies” has been stretched to include economic problems, social imbalances, and perceived threats to the US by any foreign country’s actions, even those on other continents.

In this video Dr. Eugene Schroder explains his findings:

Here is the text version of Dr. Schroder’s Special Report:

War and Emergency Powers – Special Report by Dr. Eugene Schroder

So, the only way to end the abuses now being inflicted on the American people – as enemies of the state – is to convince whomever is sitting in the White House to cancel the supposedly unconstitutional eighty year state of emergency once and for all!

  1. Edwin Vieira, Jr.

    Apparently the author of this article did not bother to question whether “emergency powers” are constitutional, no matter what some Senate report may say. Conceding one’s enemies’ “authority”, when that “authority” does not exist, is a sure recipe for disaster. One might consider such a concession–with all of its defeatist implications–more of a “gas lighting” operation than the works of the people whom the author criticizes (no doubt without actually studying what they have written).

  2. It is increasingly frustrating to hear, after each gigantic power grab by USA INC, “That’s Unconstitutional” and all the pocket Constitutionalists come out to play lawyer and advocate for States’s rights. Speaking of States rights and gas-lighting. I have posed a question to the 10th Amend Center MANY times. It centers around how Jefferson’s and Madison’s theories of controlling Feral Govt overreach (an understatement if ever there was right?) I continually have asked how nullification, anti-commandeering, and interposition fits into the scheme if the States are merely subsidiaries of a corporate fascist “govt”? I have posted the question at least every 3-6wks on one of their videos on YT and most recently last week. I wanted some answer after spending so much of my time advocating for their vision and their organization and their vision. While I see many thank you’s to the sycophants replying w/get ’em TAC, keep up the great work (getting permission from the Feds to get stoned and remove yourself from the world of logical thought). NOTHING YET.
    OH, and a question. I have seen the gaslighting in hyper-drive on the alt-media FINANCIAL/ECONOIC GURU PATRIOTS. One in particular in which you, AL have given interviews to (SGT). The story goes something like this. They all, SGT included, admit that all the central banks are owned by the European Kazarian Cabal (working towards NWO in concert w/Vatican, Royal House of Windsor, and secret societies like Shriners, FreeMasons, etc) YET there is an EAST vs WEST banking battle underway. I bought in at first BUT. The story requires one to believe that these very intelligent (devilishly so) scheming, deceiving, thieving, murdering families and their puppets (Wall St Banks) would sell off all the gold/silver that they stole, scammed, etc over CENTURIES to the BRICS nations AT SUPPRESSED PRICES mind you, JUST TO PROP UP A DYING SYSTEM, one that was designed to fail, for just a few more yrs!!!!! It is absolutely preposterous. BUT intelligent minds would like to paint someone like Putin EX KGB at that, as savior and one in which w/ president Xi wingwang of China (who keep Christians in cells until ready to be harvested for organ donation) and India stealing gold from ancient temples now, would usher in an era of sound banking and freedom. OMGod, these people are reeling in the Patriots and Rip Van Winkle types by the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS. AND when I ask the obvious and remind the that the western govts are simply corporate entities, Sean had a video where his guest (Bix Weir/aka Six Beers 2many IMO) forwarded the idea of DONALD GUMP THE CHUMP as savior of America and possibly the WORLD!! Unreal. Wondered if you had noticed any of that or they’ve asked you back on. I don’t think that they can agree w/what every single one of their guest postulates BUTdon’t act like you buy into it then turn around the next week and act like the info hasn’t been revealed or isn’t relevant.

    Keep up the good work. Looks like our time may be running short. They’re cracking down. Even little ol me got shut down for 2wks for “spamming” replies to the farcical GOP YT vids for speeches by the treasonous scum in attendance. (like Rudi Giuliani revealing he was told the WTC was going to collapse or TrumptheChump’s many ties to Clintons, Soros,GSachs, Kssinger, etc, etc)

    Best wishes AL and rest of the folks at ACS,


    • Leo Wanta has been telling everyone the government is just a corporation . . . for years. People don’t seem to want to acknowledge it and if they do, they don’t seem to be able to figure out what it means.


    Great job on this! It’s very professionally done.

  4. Thank you so much for your continued efforts to WAKE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE UP. Re the Church Report on Emergency Powers, a friend and I researched that topic in the early 1990s in the University of Houston Law Library. No one would believe us: a respected US senator proved beyond doubt we have been living as the declared enemies of our own government since 1933! In fact, anyone can still find this report in libraries and perhaps even the Government Printing Office still prints this report.

    It is an incredible story that not one in 1000 knows, and yet it is “hidden in plain sight.”

    Unless the American People wake up and DEMAND the return of our rights, by arms if necessary as the Founders supported, we will sink farther into the abject state of subjugation we find ourselves in today.
