“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” Carl Sagan from the Demon Haunted World
We've written a lot of words since starting our articles in 2004 and continuing with the Parallax Prophecies column in August of 2011. We've covered a lot of territory in those articles about the condition of America and how she, her constitution and her freedom are on life supports right now. Many more conservative authors have added to the dialogue. As Carl Sagan says, we have been bamboozled by charlatans and now most Americans won't acknowledge or admit to the bamboozle and are quite satisfied with the status quo, even though the status quo gets progressively worse over time. Take special note of the word "progressively", as in progressives.
Most everyone who is paying attention, is aware of the problems, but are conflicted on the solutions. It turns out that the solutions are many but they all boil down to one thing, tens of thousands of citizens becoming involved in what their elected representatives and judges and their un-elected bureaucrats are doing to the citizens by force of law or by fiat.
The citizens first, on a very large scale, have to more thoroughly vet their representatives and judges before electing them. Unfortunately, millions of Americans have no idea of what is going on, or whom their representatives and judges are, but they get to vote anyway. Secondly, citizens cannot trust their elected representatives to properly control un-elected bureaucrats. Consequently, un-elected bureaucrats, the out-of-control fourth branch of government, run wild with passing laws that run roughshod over constitutional protections with no consequences for so doing.
Counties, cities, towns and local school boards, all run by elected representatives, must be watched daily or they will exceed their authority without conscience or compunction, mainly because they can get away with it. Judges rule from the bench and many unilaterally interpret the law using a heavy dose of their own bias as a backdrop for their decisions.
Now the chance of the citizens, on a large scale, getting more involved in choosing their elected representatives and judges and holding them accountable is a pipe dream. People are lazy, apathetic and inattentive, unless it hits them in their pocket book or their eye. But that fact doesn't leave us with no alternative to holding representatives, judges and bureaucrats accountable for their actions or in-actions. It turns out that a very few people can hold them accountable by doing some research on those representatives, (or judges or bureaucrats) their backgrounds, their associates, where their money comes from, who is providing the money and what "deals" are being made in exchange for the money.
Ladies and gentlemen, the horrible reality is, without accountability, corruption reigns. But even worse, corruption leads to fascism. Since so few are minding the store, corruption just keeps growing like a cancer. America is now so riddled with this cancer it has become a way of life. It's the bamboozle that Carl Sagan wrote about. It has become institutionalized and now surrounds us everywhere, but that doesn't mean there are no cures for this cancer. Many cancer treatments target the cancer without killing the whole body. The doctors apply an agent that goes directly to the cancer and eats it, dissolves it, or kills it. The people can attack the cancer of corruption in the same manner. We can send "agents" directly to the cancer and expunge it from the body politic. And it doesn't take millions of people to do it. It just takes a minute percentage of the population to poke their noses into what politicians, judges and bureaucrats are doing in their headlong push to destroy America, her values, her constitution, her freedom and liberty.
All summer long in our column, we have hinted at launching ORDCA. We have chosen this time and this column to launch the "Open Resistance Defense Council of America", or ORDCA. ORDCA consists of thousands of Citizen Investigators (CI's) located all around America who will take the time, mostly on their own computer, to research a politician, judge, or a bureaucrat in their local area in the interest of exposing the corruption we know that exists all around us. The ORDCA Investigator Kit provides all of the tools a CI will need to complete his or her investigation, including a highly informative manual entitled "Connecting the Crooked Dots".
We have also created a nationally distributed monthly newsletter to publish the information uncovered by the CI's. ORDCA's "The Investigator" newsletter will be sent to hundreds of the news desks of almost every major newspaper, radio and TV station in America, to provide national coverage to the politicians, judges and bureaucrats that the CI's expose. In addition, we have included in the ORDCA initiative, a significant incentive for a CI to expose a politician, judge, or bureaucrat. Let's stop the bamboozle and take our country back from the corrupt charlatans. We can do it with ORDCA.
Don't be an armchair patriot. Take action today. If you have been waiting to find a way to become involved in preserving, protecting and defending America and her constitution from all enemies, foreign or domestic, including our corrupt domestic enemies, you need to investigate ORDCA. You can do most of your investigative research right from your own computer and an Internet connection. To become a CI for ORDCA click HERE.
When these politicians, judges, or bureaucrats know we are on the hunt for them, they will be looking over their shoulder. When one of them falls to the "sword" of our relentless pursuit of accountability, they will become nervous, knowing we are dogging their trail and digging deep into their lives and activities. They will begin to fear the people again and liberty could be just around the corner. Maybe we can't vote them out of office because of the stupidity and ignorance of way too many voters, but some of us can certainly expose their corruption that we know is there and force them to resign, recall them, or send them to jail.
ORDCA is shining a powerful beacon of light on political corruption, wherever it exists. Become part of the solution instead of contributing to the problem by being an armchair patriot that waves a flag but not much else.
If you believe this to be a worthy endeavor to root out corruption, we encourage you to share our column with others on your list.
