Resistance is NOT Futile — The Rise of “Resistance Journalism”

31 Oct

by Michael Edwards

The enemies of freedom have standard weapons at their disposal that they have used throughout history.  These principally include propaganda, whatever high technology of the time period (including science and medicine), legislative bodies cooperating with their agenda, and enforcers willing to enslave their own people.  Many tyrannies of the past came in full force without much subtlety.  What we see today, however, is a carefully measured, softer approach that is aided by advanced knowledge in social engineering and mass manipulation.  But, lately we are beginning to see the brutal elements being brought to the fore in order to set the stage for a physical crushing of any perceived resistance.  The tactic of physical intimidation works even better in our modern era, as very few people alive in America today have first-hand experience with physical violence, and are not trained for such encounters.  It is obvious that the firepower of The New World Order is impossible to match as they have now employed technological advances to create a stunning array of surveillance equipment and weaponry.  It does not make sense that The Second American Revolution should take place on a traditional battlefield.

The battlefield of today has been correctly labeled by Alex Jones as the “Infowar.”  Knowing that information is knowledge, and knowledge is power, the wielder of the pen over the mightiness of the sword has actually never stood a better chance of resistance to tyranny than we see today.  We the resistance have very powerful tools at our disposal, but we need to employ them in a massive, coordinated effort with a mission to work within the system and clog it with the tools the system itself employs.  Now that people have awakened, and the tyranny is more obvious by the day, now is the time for us to break through our passive natures and become active working to stop this growing oppression.  We have had our diversions for long enough:  we have watched enough soap operas and sitcoms; watched enough sports; read enough books; and have attended enough lectures.  There is no more time for hoping that all of this will just go away.  It will not; it only will intensify as we sit around and watch it happen.  The only people now who can deny what is taking place are the willfully ignorant, or the people that actually enjoy the oppression.  It is harsh to say, but these two groups can no longer be our concern.

Nearly every American has a camera.  The government now has us under constant surveillance by satellite, cameras in nearly all public places, and they even have suggested that cameras should be installed in homes “to protect the children.”  Fine, if we are going to be on camera 24/7, then so should they.  Everyone should be carrying their camera at all times — not to document our neighbors as TV has taught us to do, but to document authority.  When you are in front of a federal building, corporate headquarters, police department, or any place where you are now likely to be confronted by private or public security thugs; get it on camera (or preferably video).  Then, use it as evidence to file a law suit immediately for the violation of your civil rights.  Be sure to know your constitutional rights, quote them on camera, and ask the official why they are violating your rights under the Constitution.

Recently, a series of “checkpoint confrontation” videos have been released, started by Terry Bressi from CheckpointUSA.  Border control checkpoints are in fact constitutional.  The only problem is that most of them are up to 100 miles inland!  They can call this border control, but it is really an illegal checkpoint, Gestapo style, within the U.S. and must be resisted.  In these videos you will see him adopt a tone that is anything but acquiescent.  He knows his rights, states them firmly, refuses to give his name (as protected by the 5th amendment), and continues to ask, “Am I being detained?”  These agents have no authority to detain someone without probable cause.  Driving in your car and stumbling across a random checkpoint is NOT probable cause.  Know your rights, get it on film, and be strong. And do not allow them to enter your vehicle; make them do it forcibly and violate your 4th amendment rights.

I’m suggesting that this type of journalism be termed “resistance journalism.”  Groups like We are Change are engaged in “ambush journalism” which is a nice thorn in the side to the specific targets of this type of disruptive questioning during public appearances, but the group has a name, and their tactics are isolated.  What I’m suggesting, is a loosely organized, grassroots group of people that is essentially “on call” to respond when someone encounters blatant tyranny.  For instance, imagine not one car with a video camera documenting abuse at a checkpoint, but 100 cars arriving at the same time armed with cameras — non-violent and completely legal.  This would clog the system as they are forced to respond with more personnel.  Imagine one hundred pieces of evidence, and 100 simultaneous law suits to follow.  This group, in fact, should have a civil rights attorney on call to respond to any questioning by authorities.  This will be a real show of resistance that will spread as people see real action and courage.  Since the group will have no formal name, it will be difficult for government to infiltrate and disrupt the movement.

The other weapon we have is the computer, or at least the pen.  Instead of screaming at one another, and preaching to the choir, we must be writing letters to all levels of the system telling them not that we are upset, but that we are resisting and will absolutely not cooperate with their illegal legislation.  In the case of products we don’t like, write and tell them you are not buying it, and tell them exactly why.  The new vaccine?  Tell law makers and anyone involved in production and distribution that you will not take that vaccine under ANY circumstances — even if it becomes mandatory.  We have to tell them that none of their contingency plans will work.  Now we have our airports becoming medical facilities — testing for disease, power to quarantine, power to inject people.  Write to your airlines and tell them you are no longer traveling due to these policies.  They don’t often listen to arguments based on morals, ethics, or human rights, but they WILL answer to money.  Hit them where it hurts.  Write to the American government; tell them you are no longer traveling due to their illegal restriction of your rights.  Tell them you are not afraid of terrorists, you are afraid of the loss of freedom and the destruction of the Constitution.  And above all, when they spew their propaganda to your children, like in the recent episode of Sid the Science Kid, tell the show creators and PBS Teachers just how inappropriate it is that vaccines should be portrayed in a good light to children who are not able to separate fact from fiction, or to research the mountain of evidence that shows the dangers of this H1N1 vaccine.  If you don’t care about your own freedom, at least stand up for the freedom of your children and future generations who are going to be forced to live in a world where they are managed like animals.

Now is the time for action.  Our greatest weapon is non-cooperation in all of its forms.  It is time to finally take Nancy Reagan’s recommendation:  JUST SAY NO.

        Sorry, as a professional Web guy with a degree and all, I have to disagree. Site is very difficult to read. Small light font on dark background is a poor choice.
        If you consider changing, I can do a little CSS for you. I usually try to link directly to sites from Facebook instead of re-posts on infowars. However, this time I will use infowars.

        I appreciate your comments. Remember that this is a blog and not a true site, but nonetheless you make a good point. I’ll consider your offer. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

    Very wise words. Excellent article. I hope the resistance movement takes your suggestions seriously. Imagine just twenty people with cameras at protests or any other place where the State decides to monitor. We have to use all the new social technologies to our advantage – cell phones, tweets, cameras, everything is at our disposal. The tyranny against us is unmatched in history, but our ability to resist it is also on a higher level than ever before in history. All the power we have is incredible – we just have to use it wisely and coordinate our actions.

      Thank you! I’m the most passive person you could ever meet, but I see no other way out of this mess.

    It was all good until we came to this statement.

    “We the resistance have very powerful tools at our disposal, but we need to employ them in a massive, coordinated effort with a mission to work within the system and clog it with the tools the system itself employs.”

    There is only a small change needed to really multiply the effect. Read up on leaderless resistance and change the word coordinated to uncoordinated. Drop “and clog it with the tools the system itself employs.” because most people will want to improve, few are interested in harming or destroying. Redefine our world, improve it as we go. So a reworded section would look like this.

    “We the resistance have very powerful tools at our disposal, but we need to employ them in a massive, uncoordinated effort with a mission to work within the system.”

      Thank you very much for your thoughtful response. Your comment is well taken. Perhaps that is a better way to articulate my point. It’s like a coordinated lack of coordination. Feel free to edit the article in the way you suggest and post it freely if you feel it would be worthwhile.

      Be well,

    “What I’m suggesting, is a loosely organized, grassroots group of people that is essentially “on call” to respond when someone encounters blatant tyranny.”

    You are looking for leaderless resistance where people independently seek out and engage tyrany.

    I wholeheartedly agree with your essay.

    The government and their lackeys have a strategy of attempting to destroy our liberty on the sly. They praise our liberty all day long yet constantly seek ways to undermine it. The one thing they don’t want is for people to challenge them. The idea is to rid you of your freedom without your ever knowing it.

    Often times, they will capitulate when pressed simply because they don’t want to reveal their attempts at repression and they want people to go back to sleep. A perfect example of this was the recent reversal by NY State requiring medical workers to take the vaccine. When the nurses sued the government retreated because they didn’t want the issue to be decided in court.

    If they had proceeded, the issue might have been decided for them or against them, but either way it would have inflamed the populace. Better to retreat and wait for a new season of American Idol or something to come along so that they can go back to their attempts to bind us all with the web of a thousand spiders while we are distracted.

    Anyway, sorry to go on so long. I just wanted to say I agree with you and I think that if freedom is to persevere in this world, we are going to have to make the government lackeys come out in the open. Declare for liberty or declare for oppression, but no one gets to sit on the fence.

      Sorry to take so long on my reply — missed this somehow. Thank you very much for taking the time to give your thoughts.

      And now we have the executive order 12425 that gives immunity to Interpol. I hope there is still time for a peaceful revolution.
