9 Ways the Federal Government has Hijacked your Rights & Taken over the Country

To be honest, we probably could have listed hundreds of different examples of government abuse. But we wanted to specifically focus on topics that we’ve covered over the last couple of years in relation to the Federal Governments attempts to Limit State Rights, Federalize local Police Forces, and most importantly how they are actively attempting to take away your freedoms and your liberty.

Feds Using National League of Cities & State Municipal Leagues to sidestep State Rights

national league of citiesNot many Americans have even heard of these organizations, yet they wield a huge amount of power and have managed to take over almost every level of local and state governments across this country. The National league of Cities represents over 19,000 cities, towns, and villages; they actively push their agenda – which matches up with this current administration’s policies – on a local and state level.

Both of these organizations have done more to limit your rights to own a gun than any other organization currently active in this debate. If you live in a town where guns are banned in parks, libraries, and other public places, there’s a good chance that someone in one of these organizations drafted your local legislation.


DNA StrandThe Supreme Court is supposed to be our last line of defense against unconstitutional laws that limit our freedoms and liberty; unfortunately, over the last couple of decades this court has increasingly begun to rule in favor of the federal government and their large corporate partners.

The latest, in a long string of unconstitutional rulings, is probably one of the most shocking and far-reaching rulings out if this court in quite some time.

According to this new ruling, you’re DNA can now be collected and stored in a DNA database, without a warrant or without even being found guilty of a crime. Those pulled over for even a minor traffic offense, are now subject to local and state law enforcement officials collecting and storing their DNA.

Green Police Cracks Down on Liberty to Defend the Environment – DHS Launches Environmental Justice Unit

I bet you didn’t know that the Federal Government actually has a Green Police Force…. Across America the government is using the environment as an excuse to take people’s land, steal land for corporations, and imprison people for trying to live a self-sufficient lifestyle.

The American Dream: One of our most precious freedoms, the right to own land, is becoming  a nightmare. From the heartbreaking story of Andrew Wordes, who took his life after code enforcement teams seized his home, to the Off-Griders in California who are being illegally forced back on to the grid, our government is increasingly cracking down on your right to own and use your land in the way you see fit.

Feds Using Groups like Mayors against Illegal guns to sidestep the Constitution

Mayors against Illegal Guns, sounds innocent doesn’t it? I mean who wants a bunch of dangerous criminals having access to illegal guns?

Well the problem with this organization, just like most of these radical left-wing gun groups, is their agenda has nothing to do with keeping guns out of the hands of criminals. Instead, this group of over 900 mayors – most of whom have very close ties to the Obama administration – are doing everything they can to make it impossible for law-abiding citizens to own a firearm.

The other problem with groups like this is the insidious way they do business. While most people believe their state and local governments are passing these laws, they are oblivious to the fact that the ring leaders in the federal government are using groups like this to slowly but surely take your state rights.

The feds now use these types of groups to basically sidestep the constitution, and screw you at the local level where the courts are much less likely to step in.

The Federalization / Militarization of your local Police Departments

militarized police forcesAs we pointed out earlier in the week, the federal government has spent billions of dollars turning your local police departments into a de facto federal military force. Through the guise of “fighting terrorism” or “National Preparedness”, the Federal government (the Department Homeland Security) has essentially taken over your state and local law enforcement.

From equipping them with billions of dollars in military equipment, e.g. tanks, drones, and armor personal carriers, to actively training them in military tactics, the feds have essentially created a private military force that answers directly to the Department of Homeland Security.

Feds use Tragedy after Tragedy to Promote Anti-American Agenda

From using Sandy Hook to push their gun control agenda, to exploiting the Zimmerman case to “retrain police departments” across the country, this administration never misses a chance to exploit a tragedy for their own personal gain. In fact, they openly admit to using these tragedies to push their agenda.

Before current mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, left the Obama administration, he was quoted saying “you never let a serious crisis go to waste”… “It’s an opportunity to do things that you could not do before.”

Local Governments Collecting Data on Gun Owners & Forwarding it to DHS

Earlier this year, we reported on Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder’s attempt to stop a program that was collecting data on gun owners and then sending that information directly to the Department of Homeland Security.

The Missouri Department of Revenue, who issues concealed carry permits in Missouri, was transmitting private information on Concealed Carry Permit Holders to the Department of Homeland Security. The Lieutenant Governor became involved after a citizen was denied a concealed carry permit when he refused to let the Missouri Department of Revenue scan and transmit his private data to the feds.

Obama Administration Shreds the 4th Amendment

How quickly most Americans forget; only a month ago we learned (not that we didn’t already know) that the federal government was actively spying on pretty much every American Citizen. From collecting phone records from all major cell carriers to spying on your audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and internet connection logs, the government now knows more about you than you probably know about yourself.

The 4th amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects us from unreasonable searches and seizures, it reads:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Unfortunately, this government has deemed themselves to be above the law, and above the principles in which this country was founded. Even worse, is how little Americans seem to care!

Indefinite Detention of American Citizens

While losing your 4th Amendment rights is an absolute travesty of justice, losing your 6th amendment rights, your Habeas Corpus rights and your ability to defend yourself in the court of law is almost unbelievable – unfortunately it has happened.

The 6th amendment reads:

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

Habeas corpus

The Suspension Clause of the United States Constitution specifically included the English common law, Habeas corpus, procedure in Article One, Section 9, clause 2, which demands that “The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.”

Last year people were up in arms over the Obama administrations passage of a provision in the NDAA, a provision that would allow them to indefinitely detain American Citizens without a trail, unfortunately Americans seem to have a short attention span and have already forgotten that the feds granted themselves these new unconstitutional powers.

  1. I could say a lot about this, but if you take a close look at obamas face[ no I did not forget to cap] you can see him thinking of another way to screw us.

  2. Unbelievable how the public just keeps forgetting about everyone of these things yet last night they can devout an hour long tv show to the royal baby.

    • Al the women at work were talking about that damn baby but not a single one of them have a clue about anything mentioned in this article.

      • Same with my work… the maturity level just tanked… then fired, I believe for wanting to know more about the vaccine before I made a decision to get it. Country is falling apart and all they were worried about is lunch from the minute they walked in. Unbelievable!!

  3. Some countries seem to have a better idea,if you don,t like your leaders throw them out and elect new ones,the only problem is that americans don,t have the balls.They would rather go to court or have another election.Heaven forbid we might have to hurt some one or suffer for what we beleive in.God Bless America.(but I think God wants us to do our part)

    • A big part of it is they have most bent over a barrel. I understand your point, I think, and yes standing for what you believe in no matter what… Even if it meant losing your job and unfortunately, perhaps some friends and family as well. I know it can sound extreme to some, but believe me, it is important in this life. Builds character and you won’t be regretting later that you did nothing.

      Thanks for that Sherman!

    • Business, People, Churches, must rise up! That is our only choice…bombarding the state offices, the Gov, legislators, If we have a lock down…and mask, perfect timing. We continue to look for groups to join and support. Every time I hear a clip on dumb ass leaders I stop and write in…Live FREE or die! We Love our country…We must take it back!

  4. Electing new leaders won’t make much of a difference. Most likely, you will find that the new leaders will be just as corrupt or just as gung-ho in their ideology. Besides there are those who voted for Obama who idolize him and therefore see him doing no wrong at all. Remember Jamie Foxx has called our dear president “My savior.” And this is how many of his disciples look at him.

    • You sir are correct, if the new elected officials are not already greedy thieves when they go to office, it will not take long for them to become so.
      Time to change the game, elect only people that have never been in office before, fresh blood, fresh ideas.

  5. I think we all need to march on Washington dc and take over the government and make changes that will rebuild America and make it a country that all of us American citizens can be proud to be Americans again.

  6. No where do we see or know the repercussions of sex outside marriage and no one wants us to know – women are taken away from family & years & years go by and Never return – Aaron Katz, Webb Turner, are some of the gov’t. criminals in this enterprise –When someone kills they get out of jail & have visitors – in this you never again see or talk with family!
