Oath Keepers - Sentinels of Freedom

This story is an annoying and a biased one...for example, referring to the Southern Poverty Law Center, without mentioning that they are a radical, extremist Left-Wing group...

And note the quote:
But for Rhodes, it looked like preparation for a future declaration of martial law. It reminded him of the response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when police officers reportedly confiscated legally owned firearms. What the government called emergency response after the levees broke, Rhodes saw as the imposition of martial law.

Notice they use "reportedly" to cast doubt on the fact that it happened—and yet presuppose it to have happened, by implication, in the next sentence describing it as an "emergency response" according to the government.

If there wasn't any gun confiscation....what exactly is the government describing as an "emergency response"?

And so it goes on.

But the fact is, this article relates the existence and growth of Oath Keepers (despite the provocative and ludicrous title) and that's a comforting thought.

Feel free to send them money!

  1. Martial Law is exactly what it is = Martial Law ! The olde saying rings true if waddles like a duck, quacks like a duck, then guess what its not a turkey. Its a .... ! If you can find what it actually means to be placed under martial law in this country it just might worry you just a lil bit!

  2. The money quote from Rhodes of Oathkeepers from his appearance on "Hardball"

    "We swear an oath to the Constitution, not to a man, even if he makes a thrill run up your leg when he talks." ~ Stewart Rhodes

    Somehow this scares people...I just don't get

  3. Because it's scary're just tougher than most. More clear-eyed. That's a declaration of rebellion...serious, real, actual rebellion should things go sideways.

    People DO NOT WANT TO THINK about it.

    But, like Beck says, it's time to think the unthinkable.

  4. I took the oath my first time on the same day Ronald Reagan took his second. January 20, 1985. It was on a Sunday.

    As far as I know I haven't been released from it, even though I'm now USN (Ret) instead of USN (AD).

    And even if I have, I'll keep it still: To support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

  5. Some of us have never taken it publicly or formally. But we have in our hearts...and like you, consider it binding forever!

    God bless us all!
