Powerful letter and plea from Kate Dalley of the Kate Dalley Show on Fox News. It’s heartening to see people speaking out from across the political and politicized spectrum, and speaking from the heart. Truly, it’s the one thing that can turn things around in this country and stop the tide of totalitarianism that seems to still be welling around us, in so many ways (speaking from the heart). Gratitude to Kate Dalley for speaking her thoughts, and expressing many of ours.

Kate Dalley: An Open Letter to the Three FBI Agents That Killed LaVoy Finicum in Oregon

I’ve thought about you. All three of you, with your guns pointed at LaVoy Finicum. The video still haunts me.

I would have been the first one to give you the benefit of the doubt. I was raised around law enforcement. I know good men in law enforcement. But that changed for me, as it did thousands of Americans, with the events that unfurled in Oregon as I felt utterly stunned at what I viewed in that video.

I watched the grainy version of the video that the FBI administration released of  LaVoy Finicums death, even though I knew that with our technology today,  they have better, more clear footage and footage with audio from this event. But you will not release that, it is too incriminating for the FBI.

They did this with purpose to deceive the public and that video would have revealed to the world your actions that day . This footage you did release, left people arguing about what they were seeing in the blurry video rather than  to bring their attention to the way that three FBI agents ambushed and murdered an innocent, non-violent rancher with no criminal history. A man with a large family. A good man. A man who never threatened you.

The FBI had clearly set this up in advance with stops prepared and dozens of agents ready to end the protest because four weeks of a land rights issues protest was all the patience they could muster. The protesters had left the ranch many times before and on this day we’re headed for a meeting to inform ranchers of their rights. You knew that.  You stopped the two cars and started shooting at LaVoy’s truck full of passengers- unprovoked. They never brandished a weapon against you.

Finicum told you he was driving to the Sheriffs office for protection from you. The only place he felt safe.  You fired on his vehicle. You could have just followed him if you had ever intended to have a peaceful outcome. But that was never your intention. Finicum knew why the local law enforcement wasn’t invited to this event- why the local Sheriff was intentionally kept at bay-  Finicum feared  what you would do to him with no local oversight. The Sheriff of Grant County, just over the county line where you ambushed him, valued  Constitutional rights and Finicum knew the Sheriff  would never approve of an ambush on the highway and and execution of a protester.

A tax-paying citizen who loved America could not trust you and fled for his life because he knew you could murder him and get away with it. Let that sink in.

When Finicum got out of his vehicle with his hands up, within seconds you gathered around him and shot him in the back.

You shot him him in the back.

Who would carry out such a cowardly deed? Who would follow orders to shoot a rancher with his hands up and shoot him in the back seconds after getting out of his vehicle? The three of you would do this. What were you thinking? How do you reconcile this in your head and in your heart?

No talking? Not one attempt at a peaceful negotiation? At the refuge all he did was talk to you, never threatened you. His hands were UP. Did your conscience allow you to shoot him  without any reservation? After his lifeless body dropped into the snow, you cared so little for this fellow citizen that you walked around his body and didn’t check for a pulse for 15 minutes? Why? Because of your guilt or because you had such little regard for him or for human life in general? Both of those answers are equally terrifying to me.

Moments later you  shot rounds of ammunition into Finicum’s truck with scared women inside screaming for help- trying to surrender.  You threw gas cans inside the vehicle.  Is this how you do it now? Are you sincerely okay with this? Look at what you have become. By a miracle they survived.

Before you hunted him down and silenced him like wild game, Finicum carried out two heroic acts. As he turned the blind corner on the highway, he almost ran into your barricade head on, as vehicles and men stood standing in the middle of the highway at your “stop”. He veered to the left on the snowbank to avoid hitting you. To preserve your lives.  He then got out of the vehicle with his hands up to divert your attention from his truck with passengers inside, so you would stop firing upon them. To preserve their lives. This is the man you surrounded and killed within seconds. You killed a hero.

I wonder what has happened to my America where you could easily tell the good guys from the bad guys. Are you mercenaries now? Carrying out executions on demand? Have you realized yet that you did the bidding of a government that is seeking to violate the property rights and steal the land of your fellow citizens? Do you realize that you are a citizen and that these ranchers were standing up for YOUR rights, too? Or have you not realized this.

Most Americans won’t take the time to do the research to find out that you shot him in the back before he ever reached for his stomach – the area where you shot him. And your bosses instructed the media to tell everyone he reached for a gun to justify this cowardly act of murder on a fellow citizen. What a pathetic cover-up for your actions that day.

I’m asking all three of you who carried out the execution of Finicum, to RESIGN.

Resign, because I have to know that you will never be allowed to act with force again. I have to know that men like you would not be allowed to continue on as FBI agents. If you are rewarded for this dastardly act, I will lose all faith in our justice system.

We need men with a conscience and a soul  in law enforcement.

We need good men who are there to protect the citizens rights. Your fellow men.

You took an oath to defend the Constitution. Did you understand this oath when you excitedly repeated its words to get your badge? It wasn’t a promise. It was an oath. An oath to protect and to serve- us. LaVoy was one of US.

Are you going to protect us or are you going to protect orders? Even if those orders compel you to disregard someone’s Constitutional rights in the most brazen and corrupt and evil way? Was this you “just doing your job”, so that you could end their protest?

Millions of  people have died as a result of those ” just doing their job”. Under Hitler. Under Stalin. Is this who you have become? Shooting someone with their hands up because you were told to?

You can no longer hide behind the lie that you felt threatened enough to shoot him dead. With a dozen or more  of you ready to attack him, the only one that felt threatened was Finicum, I assure you. You murdered an innocent man. The salt of the earth. A man who would have stood up for you and who would have respected you. A man who would have shaken your hand and talked to about his love for America. You killed him.

Let me ask you this. In all of your years in the FBI, how many ranchers have ever threatened you or have drawn weapons on you? I’m guessing the thugs you deal with everyday do not include ranchers and farmers.

How many ranchers over the years have left their working farms, to protest over the stealing of another ranchers land and imprisonment? I’m guessing probably none.

Here’s the difficult question. After decades of government abuse to rancher’s property rights, how many ranchers have YOU defended, or aided, or stood for- because you did take an oath to defend the Constitutional rights of those in your care. I am going to guess that you have never stood for any of these men against the abuse of the government. You have become pawns. You are protecting the governments special interests, not the people’s.

Resign, so I can sleep at night with some of my faith in America  restored.

Resign, so I can tell my kids to respect the FBI.

Resign, because I need to know there are not monsters out there with guns and badges that will do anything they are told to do, like killing innocent Americans, because we could be next.

Resign.

You may be a fellow citizen, but you are not my fellow American.

Dave Hodges/The Commonsense Show: “Your Doctor is Being Required to Assess Your Mental Health on an Informal Basis.”

Re-posted  (in excerpt) from The Commonsense Show, please visit there for the whole article: New Obamacare Mental Health Policies Can Take Your Gun and Put You In a FEMA Camp

This is an enormously important article that covers current and ongoing initiatives by the Obama administration and by the states, under the palliative aegis of improving mental healthcare in the USA via the Affordable Health Care Act, to set up informal mental health screenings for children and adults and mandate psychiatric treatment for all those labelled through these screenings as suffering from depression, and to charge members of the Independent media with conspiracy theorizing or “paranoid ideation,” a charge which permits states to run involuntary testing/screening and commit “conspiracy theorists” in a 3-day hold to a mental institution.

Dave Hodges traces the history of Teen Screen, which ran from 2003 to 2012 and was closed down only after intense outcry at the psychotropic medications being forced on young adolescents. Currently, mental health screenings are being set up in a most insidious way: your doctor can informally check in on your mental state, quite without your knowing, and write you down as a depressive, upon which you will be required to take psychotropic drugs to “correct” your newly-diagnosed disorder. 

Psychotropic drugs alter the brain, as Dave Hodges points out, this scenario therefore is quite like the political schizophrenia run by the Soviets, and its purpose is mind control.

Excerpt:

The Affordable Health Care Act Replaces Teen Screen and Expands to the Mental Health Screening of All Adults

Next time you visit your doctor, be aware that your doctor is being required to assess your mental health on an informal basis. Be careful how you respond to your doctor, because you may be branded as mentally ill which could mean mandatory incarceration for “treatment” and forfeiture of assets to pay for said treatment. This is a thinly veiled version of the old Soviet Union’s “political schizophrenia”.

A panel advising the Obama administration, in partnership with Big Pharma, is in the process of requiring all doctors to screen American adults and children over age 12 to screening for alleged “mental health” disorders, especially for depression. Ultimately, anyone found to possess any type of mental disorder  will undergo state mandated “therapy” Part and parcel to this therapy comes some very  well-documented and highly dangerous side effects from the required medications which can be administered without the consent of the patient.

As it was with Teen Screen, teachers, social workers, and more are already being required to search for supposed “mental and behavioral health” issues 

Therapists are drawing upon a very new frontier in order to force people into treatment as psychiatrists invent new “illnesses such as ODD.” The ultimate goal is the mass medicating of the American people. And with a judgment of mental illness, this is Obama’s latest strategy of gun confiscation.

The controversial “recommendations” include screening all Americans between the ages of 12 and 18 for depression. A separate but related recommendation seeks to have all U.S. adults checked for “mental illness,” too. And consider that the list of “illnesses” is subjective (homosexuality was a mental disorder a few decades ago) and is constantly expanding as psychiatrists vote to create new ones, literally, as part of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual — the “Bible” of psychiatry that has been widely criticized, even by leading psychiatrists.”

While Preventive Healthcare (Govt. website here) sounds perfectly logical and sane, the Requiring of preventive screening of any kind, hand in hand with Mandatory Drug Treatment, whether for kids or adults, should ring alarm bells for all of us. The Ministry of Prevention is approaching us, long syringe and straitjacket in hand–shall we wake up now and stop the nightmare, or just keep on dreaming that we’re free, as we’re being carted off to mental asylums in a misty fog of Prozac?

This new application of mental health treatment is being done under the auspices of the  United States Preventive Services Task Force, or USPSTF. Make no mistake about it, this organization, appointed by the Obama administration’s increasingly radical and United Nations controlled Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), recommends various unconstitutional federal health policies which will result in the evisceration of civil liberties for millions of unsuspecting Americans.

The new guidelines  published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The USPSTF recommends screening for major depressive disorder (MDD) in adolescents aged 12 to 18 years,” the HHS task force said in the summary of its position. “Screening should be implemented with adequate systems in place to ensure accurate diagnosis, effective treatment, and appropriate follow-up.” The testing is be mandated and will required with no exceptions. You don’t have to be on Obamacare. All doctors will be required to participate.

On the subject of Indy media expressing views questioning the government:

These practices are reminiscent of how the Soviets used to imprison political enemies. The Soviets simply said if anyone disagree with the government, they must have “political schizophrenia” and required to have treatment in a mental healthcare facility.

All “Conspiracy Theorists” Are Mentally Ill According to DSM V

When I went through my clinical training, the Bible of mental illness, The Statistical and Diagnostic Manual (DSM-4r) defined Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) as a highly controversial mental illness used to describe children and teens as mentally ill if they exhibited disobedience and defiance. When I was first nationally credentialed, most practitioners did not take this diagnosis seriously and we mistakenly believed that it would fade away. We uniformly believed this to be true because defiance and oppositional behaviors are hallmark traits of healthy rebellion exhibited by children and teens as they seek independence. Rather than ODD fading away, the diagnosis has become the tool of the ruling elite.

The new DSM (5) has expanded the definition of ODD to include adults who exemplify “paranoid ideation” about the government and frequently express these delusional ideations on the Internet.

In most states, the government could arrest a member of the Independent Media based upon a charge of “threat to self and others due to paranoid ideation under the new ODD. The hold of the media types would be f0r 72 hours. The “patient” would not be able to speak with family and more importantly, with an attorney. The result could be a sentence which remands one to a mental health facility where they are forcibly drugged since they are now a ward of the state. Personal assets can be seized in order to pay for “treatment”.

An added revelation in this article is that not merely are mental health facilities opening all around the country, FEMA-camp-like mental institutions are being built, presumably to house those radical dissenters engaged in serious research and communications to the populace in their stance as Independent Media, which the state can characterize as “paranoid ideation” as it pleases.

Please read the whole article at The Commonsense Show, please pass on this information. We need to speak out against a system that would arbitrarily screen us and our children for spurious DSM-invented mental health “disorders” in its desperate attempts to control the narrative and contain dissent–these are transparent attempts to control behavior, thinking, and critiques of the government by seeking to mis-characterize, forcibly drug, and eventually, disappear all independent and critical thinkers, doers, and journalists. All signs of a fascism already here, if not approaching at frenetic speed, unless we wake up and recognize the tyranny for what it really is and collectively and individually put a stop to it.

Paul A. Philips/Activist Post: The Growing Tyranny of Free Speech Suppression and What You Can Do

Re-posted from this op-ed, posted Feb 22, by Activist Post, with many thanks. Paul A. Philips’ site is New Paradigms.

“Don’t become an unquestioning, compliant docile sheep. Don’t live your life muzzled, glued to the TV. Don’t let the pillar of public apathy keep the suppression of free speech propped up and standing.

Educate yourself. Understand the bigger picture of the growing tyranny of free speech suppression and spread the word. Understanding the bigger picture ought to be enough to make anyone want to shout down from the rooftops.

The solution is to confront. More people need to muster enough courage to speak out about what isn’t being said than ever before. Confront those politically correct weasels. Confront any control freak with ulterior motives to shut people up.

Boycott the social media giants. There are a growing number of other social media outlets dedicated to alternative-view communities where you’d be better off spending your time.

We have to stand in the gap, maintain our constitutional right to hold up a protest sign, preserve public opinion … whatever it takes to protect our freedom to speak.”

The Growing Tyranny of Free Speech Suppression and What You Can Do

humanfreedomOp-Ed by Paul A. Philips

Some people need reminding that the principled 1st Amendment was written to allow the flow of free speech without government interference. The 1st Amendment allows a person in the minority to say what they want while protecting them from the opposing majority.

What we’re witnessing today on unprecedented levels is the denial of our self-expression through a number of uncompromising authorities taking away our right to free speech.

Consequentially, we’re facing a crisis where citizens’ ability to think for themselves, communicate opinions or disagreement is seriously under threat.

The growing tyranny of free speech suppression can be found:

In schools

Yes, get them at an early age so that they can be under the ruling thumb with ludicrous, moronic prohibitions and zero-tolerance policies making the schoolchildren too scared to say anything for the rest of their lives.

For example, I’m told that schoolchildren in some schools cannot say certain words like, for instance, gun (now referred to as ‘the G-word’). How will this growing word embargo affect the ability to communicate clearly?

Political correctness

Hordes of politically correct weasels and control freaks have been allowed to run amok on citizens of all ages enforcing their petty word characterizations.

Here are just a couple of examples:

Some UK hospital staffs have been severely ticked-off for stigmatizing patients: To avoid the so-called stigmatizing, ‘out-patients’ must be called ‘clients.’

Music teachers have been told that pupils cannot teach the song ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep.’ In line with political correctness it must be called ‘Baa Baa Happy Sheep’!

Reported for speech categorization

Besides political correctness citizens are getting reported for a number of speech categorizations considered to make someone feel uncomfortable, unsafe or cause offense.

College campuses are known to be the hotbed for this. Besides encouraging the snitch-community, students could be reporting each other for ‘trigger warning’,’ micro-aggression’ and ‘red light’ speech categorizations…

In schools besides hateful speech, offending ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, religion … teasing is now considered to be bullying. Bullying is deemed by authorities as tomorrow’s hate crime…

Social Media

Bearing in mind the effects they have on government policy, besides Google, for some time social media giants such as Facebook and Twitter (see video) have been at work on what speech needs online censoring. Taking the case where you’re not approved, deemed by these corporations as ‘anti-government speech,’ then you will be deleted on the basis of ‘extremism.’

Implications, implications??

The consequences of the suppression of free speech

1. Inability to think critically

Already mentioned, the suppression of certain words and speech categorizations will greatly hinder the ability to think critically and communicate views in an articulate manner because of a lack of vocabulary.

2. Easier to control and manipulate

As a consequence of 1, it will make individuals that much easier to further control and manipulate.

Where will it go from here?

3. Creates limited choices

Language and thought creates our reality; and when greatly restricted, our choices will in turn be based on limited or even false paradigms.

4. Breeds ‘unhealthy skepticism’

Typical of a totalitarian scenario, adhering to the establishment’s growing suppression leads to what I call unhealthy sKepticism where more and more people will become fixed, rigid and dogmatic in their beliefs. Instead of investigating, anyone seeing outside of the limited viewpoint will be ignored, ridiculed or rejected, labeled as someone to be ‘skeptical’ about.

5. Encourages intolerance

We’ve seen a number of circumstances where dissent and public opinion has been demonized unjustly. Aren’t the authorities the real extremists or bullies?  

6. Easier to whitewash

If speech is under the control of corporations such as the social media giants (or any other mainstream media outlet) acting on government policy, then it makes it easier to manipulate the general consensus … even to the point of whitewashing dubious or criminal activities.

7. Bottling-up effect

The bottling-up of free speech could lead to violence and rioting on the streets through frustration in the desire to take action.

What you can do to protect free speech

Don’t become an unquestioning, compliant docile sheep. Don’t live your life muzzled, glued to the TV. Don’t let the pillar of public apathy keep the suppression of free speech propped up and standing.

Educate yourself. Understand the bigger picture of the growing tyranny of free speech suppression and spread the word. Understanding the bigger picture ought to be enough to make anyone want to shout down from the rooftops.

The solution is to confront. More people need to muster enough courage to speak out about what isn’t being said than ever before. Confront those politically correct weasels. Confront any control freak with ulterior motives to shut people up.

Boycott the social media giants. There are a growing number of other social media outlets dedicated to alternative-view communities where you’d be better off spending your time.

We have to stand in the gap, maintain our constitutional right to hold up a protest sign, preserve public opinion … whatever it takes to protect our freedom to speak.
