Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston!
Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a para-military extremist faction.
Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.
Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.
Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices.
The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.
The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.
Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.
One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”
Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes.
The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists. Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange. Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths.
Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.
Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.
Samuel Adams, Paul Revere and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.
And this, fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began April 20, 1775. On July 4th, 1776 these same extremists signed the Declaration of Independence, pledging to each other and their countrymen their lives, fortunes and sacred honor. Many of them lost everything, including their families and their lives over the course of the next few years.
Lest we forget… Let us not forget!
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” ~Benjamin Franklin~
America, the example has been given to us in July 1776 at the expense of bloodshed and loss of life by our forefathers. Let us not dishonor them, their memories nor their sacrifices.
History repeats itself, and the 'plan' to confiscate our weapons has once again been put in place along with the 'extremists' labeling of those who desire peace and the free exercise of their lawful rights.
Are we willing and ready now, as our forefathers were, to defend those rights?
Enlisted vs Commissioned Military Oath of Office
The military oath of office is different for enlisted and commissioned officers.
Enlisted service members swear allegiance to POTUS and the Constitution.
Officers do not swear allegiance to POTUS – as a safeguard against a usurper commander-in-chief. They swear allegiance only to the Original Organic Constitution - NOT to the U.S.A. corporation rewritten 'constitution'. There's a DIFFERENCE. [Emphasis added.]
Enlisted Oath (POTUS & Constitution)
“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”
(Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).
Officer Oath (Constitution only)
“I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____ do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.”
(DA Form 71, 1 August 1959, for officers.)
Presidential Oath of Office
I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
So, America, what to do about a 'president' of a criminal foreign corporation, working feverously along with those in the sub-corporations, i.e., CON-gress, the 'judiciary,' and all the many varied 'government departments; which have usurped our REAL GOVERNMENT, that of the REPUBLIC??
What will YOU do when the criminals come to your home and family with the evil intent to steal, kill and destroy you and all you have? Do you fight to defend it? Or do you surrender - pull the door wide open, move aside and invite them in to do as they will to you and yours? DO NOT FORGET - THEY ARE OUR ENEMIES.
