Fed Raids / Constitutional Rights Under Siege

"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...
They are the only sure reliance for the
preservation of our liberty."

~ Thomas Jefferson

Article Preface by Christopher Rudy

Montana has been called, "The Last Best Place" for many reasons, ranging from it's pure mountain headwaters, pristine air, the Yellowstone ecosystem, and its staunch support of freedom: the Constitution, State rights and individual sovereignty. 

Core sovereignty rights are under siege nationwide, but the fed raids in Montana -- article following -- is a good case in point.

These turf wars of the Empire' have consequences - a siege mentality. It makes people think, "Where is the honor of Federal Government if they don't honor our core Constitutional freedoms?"

This is a wake up call folks.  Mark my words, 2011 will see the testing of freedom, honor, and the survival of civility as no other time in the Republic.

What we've just witnessed in Japan is to prepare you for such a cataclysmic eventuality here, in America, in 2011.

Get ready!  One way or another, our system of self-governance is going to reboot. 

Remember that the best government is self-government so steel yourself for what may be a severe testing of self-governance - the constitution of

Those who don't honor the Constitution are the real outlaws.

"All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void."
~ Chief Justice Marshall, Marbury v. Madison


Federal Officers Invade Montana with Contempt for State Rights
DEA Raids Dozens of State-Sanctioned Medical Marijuana Facilities

The core issue in Montana is the same core issue nationwide...
whether government will be over people or
"of, by and for the people".

       1- THE POLITICS
      2- THE SCIENCE
          4- WHO PROFITS?
                  5- PREPARE THY SELF


A medical marijuana law was approved by Montana voters in 2004.
Montana is one of 9 other states which have declared by law that marijuana in fact has medical value and is lawful to use as such.  Since 2004, medical marijuana has become a burgeoning industry with people moving back to Montana after having left to treat medical conditions with cannabis in other states where medical marijuana is legal.

The timing of the raids was suspicious.  Montana's legislature had decided the previous day not to repeal the law, but rather choosing to reform the law to tighten regulation of the industry.  This major story was largely blacked out nationally with news dominated by the massive Japan earthquake, tsunami and meltdown of nuclear reactors.  As with the terror following 9-11, war-on-drugs policy was orchestrated while people were in a fear consciousness, out of range of a prevailing fearless
Conscience -- core Constitutional freedoms at heart -- whereby no soul can be easily manipulated to surrender its innate sovereignty to inordinate fear-bound force.

Coincidence or political? Covertly, federal agents had been conducting an 18 month investigation, having intent and motive. Seizure warrants for financial institutions in Bozeman, Helena and Kalispell totaling up to $4 million were executed. [ref. below]  Since the mainstream media is heavily vested in drug commercials for profit, and is reluctant to bite the hand that feeds it, we rarely hear about monopoly medicine's suppression of health freedoms as would provide natural, non-toxic and inexpensive alternatives to toxic, synthetic and mutagenic drugs.

State rights challenging Federal control?  Since the raids, the Montana legislature has refused $35 million in federal funding for computerizing private medical records with Fed-Gov "access" (surveillance) - a central agenda of 'ObamaCare'.   Montana is the only State in the nation to refuse federal funds for this purpose. MT State Representative Don Roberts (R-Billings) said, "We're going to have to pay it back. They say no strings attached, (but) there are strings attached. The deeper we get in debt, the more difficult it is to get out of debt....  but we shouldn't enhance, or help, or aid and abet bad federal policy."  Roberts says this money operates like stimulus funding - once clinics accept the money, they will be forced to sustain the programs, and he doesn't want them turning back to the government for that help.

For more on the politics, read the excellent March 15th article by attorney Timothy Baldwin at: '
The Bureaucracies That Marijuana Feeds'. Timothy is the son of renown Montana spiritual activist Chuck Baldwin.


See the excellent Montana PBS documentary video which aired Feb. 28, 2011:
'Clearing the Smoke: The Science of Cannabis'
Clearing the Smoke reveals how cannabis acts on the brain and in the body to treat illness.

If you watch this video, you will see the true story of medical marijuana in Montana from not just a scientific perspective -- an abundance of scientific and empirical evidence -- but also, the national economics and politics behind demonizing and criminalizing cannabis for the profit of "legal drug pushers" (Big Pharma), who can't patent and own the rights to this natural 'weed' which anyone could grow in their house or back yard.

The 'Science of Cannabis' makes it very clear that this herb is superior for treating a vast variety of severe medical conditions, including cancer.  Obviously, the legalization of cannabis would eliminate billions of dollars in Big Pharma profits. 

This very professional video indeed clears the smoke of fear and ignorance, but leaves one with the realization that the corrupt collusion of federal government with Big Pharma is more interested in their power and profit than the health and well-being of the public. 

Unfortunately, deeply entrenched fundamentalist "BS" (Belief Systems) -- ranging from orthodox to New Age religions -- believe religiously that "reefer madness' is the devil's agenda.  Their fear and ignorance fuels division between faithful 'BS' and medical science.

Thousands of individuals languish in federal prisons for having a few joints of cannabis in their possession, while at the same time, this video shows that other individuals receive cannabis for free under federal programs subsidized by our tax dollars.

With public funding for PBS under political/economic attack, video's like 'The Science of Cannabis' may become cannon fodder, so watch it while you still can.



You may agree that 'politicized science' is an oxymoron, but truth in the news media is largely politicized by economics of the medical-industrial complex which rivals the military industrial complex.  See: "Disease Profiteering in America".  We rarely get news of this because the giant news conglomerates in America receive massive profit from drug commercials for whatever ails you.  Political correctness thus translates to reliance on 'bad science' for 'good business' with 'no news' of the corrupt system of Fed/Pharma collusion for what it is... a drug-based, disease-profiteering monopoly on medicine in collusion with a government protection racket which is antagonistic to natural inexpensive healing modalities to the point of criminalizing them and suppressing core Constitutional rights to govern your own health care.


Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Raided in Montana

by Mark Miller

Thu, Mar 17, 2011 12:11 pm

The Ides of March was indeed portentous for medical marijuana in Montana as on Tuesday, March 15 the federal government executed 26 search warrants at various medical marijuana dispensaries and grow sites (encompassing seven businesses), along with four civil seizure warrants (in which the Feds confiscated some four million dollars from banks in three Montana cities). The raids were conducted as part of an 18-month investigation that targeted both legal dispensaries and cultivating caregivers in 13 cities across the Big Sky state.
Though assisted by state law enforcement, it was a veritable Whos Who of federal government agencies participating in the Montana raids with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Internal Revenue Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation all in tow.
As seems to be de rigueur when it comes to medi-pot raids by the Feds, no charges or indictments were filed against those identified in the search warrants, and no arrests were made yet. The U.S. Attorney has alleged probable cause for several federal violations, including conspiracy to manufacture, distribute and possess marijuana, with conspiracy, tax evasion and drug-trafficking charges to be potentially levied against certain individuals.
The raids surprised many medical marijuana activists across the nation, who had grown somewhat comfortable perhaps too comfortable with President Obamas relaxed policies towards medi-pot dispensaries and cultivators. Montana legalized medical marijuana in 2004 and the number of pot patients there has soared to over 28,000 in 2011 from under 4,000 in September 2009, just prior to U.S. Deputy Attorney General David Ogden issuing an October 2009 memo advising U.S. attorneys to back off medical marijuana providers and patients complying with state law. And that is the essential conflict being played out in Montana in 2011 caregivers and patients in compliance with state law, but violating the federal Controlled Substances Act, which refuses to categorize or recognize marijuana as medicine. [emphasis added]

4- WHO PROFITS?  See 'The Bureaucracies That Marijuana Feeds'

If you read that March 15th article by attorney Timothy Baldwin, you'll find that the mass raids which took place in Montana were conducted by dozens of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.  The raids were led by Feds with local Sheriffs for support. 


Were those Montana Sheriffs upholding State laws?  Did the Feds and Sheriffs agree to split the millions of dollars in bank accounts and assets seized in the raids?  Or did the feds simply over-rule State law and Constitutional law for their gain only?



Common sense may be uncommon -- turned on its head -- with a pound of drug-based treatment now worth 16 times an ounce of prevention... and so it is with common law of a Constitutional nature.  Love of the Constitution is, at heart, the virtue of public service to public interests, not the special interests which have powerful vested interests in keeping power to own one's own health FROM the people rather than 'of, by and for the people'.

Self-serving federal bureaucracies in collusion with self-serving Big Pharma interests may have big money and big power behind them, but without the moral imperative of core Constitutional freedoms, they are like Hillary Clinton who recently said that only barbaric regimes use violence against peaceful protesters and activists.  Or against legitimate state governments like Montana.

Be prepared spiritually above all.  The poor in spirit may soon be among us in droves, and spiritual leaders will be those who embody compassion-in-action.  Remember that one-in-God -- the holy spirit of Love-in-action -- is a majority.

Be prepared mentally also.  Put yourself in the situation that many Japanese are in, and ask yourself:  "Do I have at least a basic survival pack in my car trunk?  Do I have a well-stocked pantry?  Do I have a safe place to go to?  Will I have food, water and shelter?"

Prepare yourself emotionally.  Keep your head while others are losing theirs.  As a general rule, the more emotional one gets, the more unreasonable; it's a razor's edge to maintain intense feelings with reasoned compassion.  Keep centered like the eye of calm at the center of the hurricane.  If you get off-center, the emotional swirl of fear can spin you into doubt of your own mental and spiritual capabilities.

The coming test of thought, feeling and spirituality is ultimately practicality. So be prepared physically.  Build your immune systems and stick to your guns -- your core Constitutional (divine-sovereign) rights.  There are many Americans who don't have the grace and caring we see in Japan, and there are obviously corrupt government officials who don't honor the Constitution.  Be harmless as doves and wise to "serpents" (fork-tongued, two-faced wolves in 'official' clothing).


Notable Quotables re:
Faithless Fear Challenges Fearless Faith
"Fear runs much of the world, spurring on endless activity. Fear of enemies, of old age or death, of rejection, and a multitude of social fears are the basic motivators in most people's lives. From the viewpoint of this level, the world looks hazardous, full of traps and threats. Fear is the favored official tool for control by oppressive totalitarian agencies. The proliferation of fears is as limitless as the human imagination; once Fear is one's focus, the endless worrisome events of the world feed it. Fearful thinking can balloon into paranoia or generate neurotic defensive structures and, because it's contagious, become a dominant social trend."
- David R. Hawkins MD PhD from his book, Power vs. Force
"There's a second world view, however, the same one put forth by spiritual teachers from Buddha to Jesus, and is at the bottom of every religion once the "BS" (B
elief System) is boiled away. That world view insists that there is such a thing as a common humanity, and we are all in it together. It seems to be contrary to the "evidence," because if you look at human history -- well, it's more like inhuman history. However, when you consider how this evidence has been spun and is being spun, and how war is used to justify more war, it's easier to see how 80% to 90% of us get manipulated by a small group of manipulators who know how to press the buttons marked "fear", "survival", "patriotism", and "tribal loyalty." This alternative world view that we're all in it together is the foundation of mutually-assured survival rather than the deadly alternative."
