UNITED STATES FREEDOM ARMY
END OF MONTH REPORT AS OF 08/31/2014
CONSTITUTIONAL FREEDOM MARCH
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
“When your children and grandchildren ask you what happened to America make sure you can say ‘I tried my best to stop it’.”
“An excuse is an explanation of failure.”
“Do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.”
MARCH ON WASHINGTON D.C.: NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER.
This is our last appeal. Anyone and everyone who will be attending and has not informed us – we need to know now. The March has changed. There will no longer be a specified route for the Cross Country March.
We will hold the specified route concept in abeyance until next year when it will be reevaluated. For a variety of reasons we are cancelling the specified route for the March and each person will be responsible for getting to the Muster Point in their own way. You may construct your own March, you may fly in to D.C., take your RV or develop any scenario you so desire to reach the Muster Point to meet on September 17, 2014 (Constitution Day).
NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER.
The Muster Point this year will be the Springfield Mall in Springfield, VA. We will meet from 8:30 A.M. to 9:30 A.M. at the Muster Point. We will then travel from there by METRO to the Capitol. The Springfield Mall is very close to the intersection of I-95 and I-495. The Springfield Mall is bounded on the North by Franconia Road E., on the East by Frontier Road, on the South by Spring Mall Rd., and on the West by Loisdale Road. We will meet on the South section of the mall on Spring Mall Rd. about halfway between Loisdale Road and Frontier Road. From the Southeast corner of the Springfield Mall it is only about ¼ mile to the METRO Franconia-Springfield Station from where we will take the BLUE Line getting off at the METRO L’Enfant Station and walking four blocks to the meeting point. It is almost impossible to park in D.C. on a weekday and even if you can find a place it will cost you $50 to $60 to park whereas the METRO station parking is $4.75. The total cost to park and ride the METRO round trip will be about $15.
There are no public restrooms (except for emergencies) on the METRO trains or in the METRO stations. When we get to the meeting point there will be restrooms available. You have been warned! Take precautions as necessary. There is a restaurant near the Comfort Inn off Loisdale Road that serves breakfast and has restrooms. There is also a restaurant just off Franconia Road E. in the Springfield Mall.
The METRO ride to the Capitol takes about 30 minutes. We will meet on the lawn between the Capitol and the Washington Monument and directly across from the Air and Space Museum on that side of the lawn.
There are hotels/motels on Loisdale Road near the Northwest portion of the Springfield Mall. They are the Hilton Hotel, Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn and the Courtyard Marriott. The Marriott is slightly farther than the others and is near the intersection of Loisdale Road and Franconia Road W. Those of you who fly in to Reagan Airport and do not wish to rent a car may get on the Blue Line at Reagan Airport and go to the Franconia-Springfield Station and walk to one of the hotels/motels mentioned above. The walk is about ½ mile. Reservations suggested.
Dress and act like the fine patriotic people you are. If you wish to wear military apparel that is fine. If you are active duty military get permission from your commander before wearing any active duty military apparel.
NO WEAPONS AT THE MUSTER POINT OR THEREAFTER.
We are planning on making this an annual event. Be thinking of how we can get some publicity, local news coverage, TV, or whatever. Anyone may participate in this march and they do not have to be enlisted with us. We will leave the Capitol at approximately 6:00 P.M. and return to the Muster Point. At approximately 7:00 P.M. we will meet for dinner at a location near the Muster Point to be announced on September 17.
We need people to be at the Muster Point so we can go to Washington D.C. and make our complaints clear. Did you read the five quotes at the top of this report? If not, read them again. This is the time. We especially need the people from VA, MD, DE, WV, TN, NC and other nearby states to come help us on September 17. Bring any like-minded people you know with you – the more people we have the more government areas we can cover. We need to cover the Congress, Supreme Court, the IRS and as many Executive Branch offices as we can. There is no need to go to the White House since it will not do any good.
Respond to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning to attend.
We need patriots in Washington, D.C. on September 17.
If you absolutely cannot come, we need you to pass out flyers in your local area on September 17. If you cannot pass them out on September 17 pass them out as closely as you possibly can to September 17. The best place to pass them out is at your nearest military installation – we need to remind our military of their oath. If you cannot get to a military installation pass them out at your local federal government offices. IRS offices or any federal court is good. Find a federal government agency near you and pass them out. As a last resort go to your local Post Office and pass them out. Before you go to any of these federal government entities make sure you do some reconnaissance and find out what the rules are. We want to do all of this in a perfectly legal manner and we want to pass these flyers out all over the nation.
Some of you are disappointed because we are only passing out flyers. This is what we can do at this time. If it helps you to visualize this look at the flyer as your weapon, look at the words on the flyer as your ammunition, and look at the work in D.C. as maneuvers and reconnaissance.
The flyers are extremely important to what we are attempting to accomplish. The first step is to make crystal clear what your complaint consists of in the shortest possible way. Anything over one page is too long and no one will read it. It must be short and to the point. During Operation American Spring they passed out large packets with volumes of information inside. No one will read that much information unless they are being paid to do so. We want a short printed record of our position that cannot be misunderstood.
Let us know as soon as possible if you will be coming to the Muster Point and how many you will be bringing. People do not have to be enlisted to participate.
RECRUITING UPDATE AS OF 8/31/2014:
As many of you know, we are spending our first year only recruiting. We will never stop recruiting of course, but we will have other objectives in addition to recruiting after our first year. This web site was launched on September 17 (Constitution Day), 2013 and we started recruiting about 5 days later.
TX still leads in total recruits with 10.4% of all recruits. Following TX is CA (8.0%) FL (7.2%) NC (4.2%) GA (3.8%) PA (3.4%) TN (3.3%) NY (3.3%). CA and PA both had a good month.
Based upon state population for states with over two million in population the top eight are: TN MS AL NV SC NC OK KY. OK and KY both had a good showing in August. States with under two million in population are led by WY, NH, ME, ID and NE.
This paragraph is not statistically accurate and is an approximation since some of our enlistees do not give us complete information. Our female enlistees are staying at about 4 out of every 10. About 45% of all enlistees (including some female) have military experience. We have every military grade from E-1 to E-9, W1 to W4, and O-1 to O-7. We have military with Silver Stars, Bronze Stars and Purple Hearts. We have military with all types of training and awards. Of all enlistees about 65% are in the age category 40-60. About 20% are over 60 and about 15% are under 40. Our over 60 people increased in August. We had several people enlist in August who were born in the 40s and early 50s with military experience – these are almost all Vietnam veterans. This is why we increased our over 60 percentage from 15% to 20%. We also had some younger people enlist in August and that is encouraging.
Recruiting in Nov. 2013 exceeded Oct. 2013 by 24%. Recruiting in Dec. 2013 exceeded Nov. 2013 by 43%. Recruiting in Jan. 2014 exceeded Dec. 2013 by 97%. January enlistees reached 95% of all the previous months combined. Jan. 2014 was a huge month. In February, due to various technical problems, we were only able to recruit for 18 of the 28 days. It is therefore unfair to compare February to any other month. Still, in February and despite all the setbacks, we exceeded our recruiting totals for every other previous month except January 2014 – those results were extremely encouraging. March 2014 was our seventh largest recruiting month. April 2014 was our third largest recruiting month. May 2014 was our sixth largest recruiting month. June 2014 was our fourth largest recruiting month almost reaching April 2014. We are extremely encouraged by the May and June results since often in late May and early June people will not participate due to graduations, vacations and weddings. July 2014 was our largest recruiting month topping January 2014 by 20%. July 3, 4, 5 were our 4th, 5th, and 3rd largest recruiting days ever as the patriotic spirit was kindled by Independence Day. August, in spite of several minor technical problems that hampered us parts of the entire month, was our fifth largest recruiting month just missing June.
During the first five full months after September 2013 we had already surpassed our recruiting goal for the entire first year. Thank you to each one of you for your courage and patriotism. We do not give out strength reports but we can tell everyone that our total strength is >1,000 and <10,000.
We are now in all 50 states, and 11 other countries. We also have enlistees in Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. Most of the people enlisted in other countries are Americans living outside the United States. We are like Washington’s Continental Army, however, in the sense that we will welcome help from anyone who is a patriot and wants to see our Constitution restored.
What is the most encouraging are the many people who have enlisted from small towns in America. This is a small town revolution – the people who have not been heard are beginning to speak up. While we have enlistees in many major cities, it is the voices in small town America that ring loudest. The Founder has been in all 50 states and has never heard of many of these cities so we have been looking them up on the Internet – impressive. Find the people in your small town who are fed up and get them enlisted and then form a unit in your town.
As a change of pace this month (and to see if you are paying attention) we have listed below the cities in each state that have the most people enlisted. Many of these are as expected but you will also find some surprises in the list.
Wasilla AK Huntsville AL Hot Springs AR Phoenix AZ
San Diego CA Denver CO New Haven CT Frankford DE
Jacksonville FL Atlanta GA Honolulu HI Des Moines IA
Meridian ID Chicago IL Indianapolis IN Wichita KS
Louisville KY Shreveport LA Boston MA Baltimore MD
Portland ME Lansing MI St. Paul MN St. Louis MO
Laurel MS Butte MT Raleigh NC Richardton ND
Omaha NE Concord NH Toms River NJ Albuquerque NM
Las Vegas NV Rochester NY Toledo OH Tulsa OK
Portland OR Philadelphia PA Wakefield RI Anderson SC
Rapid City SD Nashville TN San Antonio TX Salt Lake City UT
Virginia Beach VA Plainfield VT Spokane WA Milwaukee WI
Princeton WV Greybull WY
Notes: In the event of a tie we awarded it to the city with the smallest population. New York City, NY would have been the largest in NY except many people signed up by borough and we didn’t add all the boroughs together as one group.
The United States Freedom Army is concerned about continuous constitutional violations in the five areas listed in the attached flyer. These violations are listed in their relative order of importance and are so long running and egregious they can no longer be condoned. The flyer attached to this report delineates these grievances. You may use it to make copies and pass it out at any meetings, at the VFW Hall, post it on billboards, give it to friends, or whatever you may decide.
NOTE: On September 17 we will be passing out these flyers in Washington, D.C. We need as many people there as possible so we can reach as many people as possible in the three branches of our federal government. We need to know as soon as possible how many people will be at the Muster Point on September 17. If you cannot participate with us in Washington D.C. we will have other things for you to do in your local area on that day. See the section above “Cross Country March on Washington D.C.” for more updated information.
We realize that the information in the note above will disappoint some people but it is the best we can do at this point in time given all the circumstances. We want to do the best we can to achieve distribution of our flyer and make the feelings of everyone regarding the abuse of the United States Constitution known.
The flyer itself has a camouflage background and a gold stripe but it was designed so it can be copied in either color or black & white. When copied in black & white it loses the camouflage and gold stripe but is still effective and is very inexpensive to copy in black & white. The words are what count and the words are what we wish to communicate.
PLEASE NOTE AGAIN: THE FLYER FOR YOUR USE IS IN THE LINK BELOW
The website post this month will be about the Constitutional Freedom March. We want people who log on to the website to know that an event is taking place and to encourage them to enlist and participate.
We support all efforts by any organization to “resurrect” the United States Constitution. Whenever we hear about any effort to restore the Constitution we will record it here.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:
We are a group of people who want to see the United States Constitution followed and, by implication, this leviathan federal government dismantled. We intend to follow all laws and proceed peacefully to attempt to achieve this goal. This is the thrust of our effort at this time.
We are not at present a militia but circumstances in the future may alter that situation. What we do or become depends upon what occurs in Washington, D.C. and what occurs in D.C. may alter our goals and approach. Since we cannot see into the future it is not possible to say what may be required as time passes and events unfold.
THIS IS A REAL ARMY! WE ARE TOGETHER! THE CONSTITUTION HAS BEEN ABUSED AND IGNORED FOR TOO LONG! WE WANT ALL THREE BRANCHES OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO START READING IT!
YOU MAY FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE YOU WISH.
UNITED STATES FREEDOM ARMY
WE SIGN IN BOLD LETTERS

Thirteen frightening words …
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Barack Hussein Obama
I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year…
which includes a 98 percent of small-business owners, you will not see your taxes increase one single dime under my plan.
Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax, no tax. We don’t need to raise taxes on the middle class!
You will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat, not one single dime. Barack Hussein Obama
Cartoon by: Ben Garrison
Well, Happy New Year folks! and Happier New Year!
Cartoon by: Glenn Foden
Well, we can see Barack Hussein and the Congress handled that one! Let’s see, to add to America’s bankruptcy, the debt ceiling will have to be raised … no problem. Hey, what’s a few more $ TRILLION when you’re already more than $16 TRILLION in debt?
The next “crisis” to have priority is gun control (maybe even “knife control“). Obama and company know that has to be done after taking over the health care industry, and taxing the nation into oblivion, and bankrupting the United States with more debt that never will be paid … ever. So, after Americans are essentially disarmed next up will be immigration “reform” … translation … open the borders for any and all … provide free education, health care, food, clothing and housing. Oh, and transportation. And drivers licenses. And citizenship. And voter rights.
Obama really has taken the “fun” out of “fundamentally changing the United States of America” …

140 Obama Crimes
October 1, 2012 by Fred Dardick
Ever since Obama took office we have witnessed the dismantling of our nation by a man who takes his golf game more seriously than his daily intelligence briefing. The sheer volume of his illicit actions is in many ways overwhelming. You might be able to come up with a few examples during a conversation, but who could possibly keep track of them all? So I have been keeping a list of every dastardly deed Obama has pulled since he made it into the public eye. From using massive voter fraud to steal the 2008 Democratic primary to his sponsoring of a Marxist inspired Kenyan constitution that is guaranteed to lead that country to ruin, they’re all here for your consideration.
Every crime listed below has a link to an essay or article that provides additional detail on what Obama and his fellow progressives in government have been up to behind closed doors. While each crime is bad enough, far too often the whole story is even worse you than you thought. You might have heard the White House illegally fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin because he was investigating Obama donor and friend Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson for stealing from an AmeriCorps grant, but did you know that Walpin also discovered that Johnson had sexually assaulted three teenage girls at the high school he took the money from? Rather than throw Johnson to the wolves the Obama administration helped cover it up.
The Walpin story and many others like it demonstrate why Barack Obama is, without question, the most corrupt President in American history.

The biggest scandal in U.S. history
By: Ann Coulter

Forget executive privilege, contempt of Congress, “fast and furious,” how many documents the government has produced and who said what to whom on which date.
The Obama administration has almost certainly engaged in the most shockingly vile corruption scandal in the history of the country, not counting the results of Season Eight on “American Idol.”
Administration officials intentionally put guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, so that when the guns taken from Mexican crime scenes turned out to be American guns, Democrats would have a reason to crack down on gun sellers in the United States.
Democrats will never stop trying to take our guns away. They see something more lethal than a salad shooter and wet themselves.
But since their party was thrown out of Congress for the first time in nearly half a century as a result of passing the 1994 “assault weapons ban,” even liberals know they’re going to need a really good argument to pass any limitation on guns ever again.
So it’s curious that Democrats all started telling the same lie about guns as soon as Obama became president. In March 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced to reporters on a trip to Mexico: “Since we know that the vast majority, 90 percent of that weaponry (used by Mexican drug cartels), comes from our country, we are going to try to stop it from getting there in the first place.”
As she sentimentally elaborated on Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren show: “The guns sold in the United States, which are illegal in Mexico, get smuggled and shipped across our border and arm these terrible drug-dealing criminals so that they can outgun these poor police officers along the border and elsewhere in Mexico.”
Suddenly that 90 percent statistic was everywhere. It was like the statistic on women beaten by their husbands on Super Bowl Sunday.
CBS’ Bob Schieffer asked Obama on “Face the Nation”: “It’s my understanding that 90 percent of the guns that they’re getting down in Mexico are coming from the United States. We don’t seem to be doing a very good job of cutting off the gun flow. Do you need any kind of legislative help on that front? Have you, for example, thought about asking Congress to reinstate the ban on assault weapons?”
At a Senate hearing, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said: “It is unacceptable to have 90 percent of the guns that are picked up in Mexico and used to shoot judges, police officers and mayors … come from the United States.”
And then, thanks to Fox News — the first network to report it — we found out the 90 percent figure was complete bunkum. It was a fabrication told by William Hoover, of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF), and then spread like wildfire by Democrats and the media.
Mexican law enforcement authorities send only a fraction of the guns they recover from criminals back to the U.S. for tracing. Which guns do they send? The guns that have U.S. serial numbers on them. It would be like asking a library to produce all their Mark Twain books and then concluding that 90 percent of the books in that library are by Mark Twain.
You begin to see why the left hates Fox News so much.
Obama backed away from the preposterous 90 percent claim. His National Security Council spokesman explained to Fox News that by “recovered,” they meant “guns traceable to the United States.” So, in other words, Democrats were frantically citing the amazing fact that almost all the guns traceable to the U.S. were … traceable to the U.S.
Attorney General Eric Holder told reporters that even if the percentage is inaccurate, the “vast majority” of guns seized in crimes in Mexico come from the United States. And he should know, because it turns out he was sending them there!
Apart from the guns Holder was giving them, this was an absurd claim. Most of the guns used by drug cartels are automatic weapons — not to mention shoulder-fired rockets — that can’t be sold to most Americans. They are acquired from places like Russia, China and Guatemala.
Right about the time the 90 percent lie was unraveling, the Obama administration decided to directly hand thousands of American guns over to Mexican criminals. Apart from the fact that tracking thousands of guns into Mexico is not feasible or rational, the dumped guns didn’t have GPS tracing devices on them, anyway. There is no conceivable law enforcement objective to such a program.
This is what we know:
(1) Liberals thought it would be a great argument for gun control if American guns were ending up in the hands of Mexican criminals;
(2) They wanted that to be true so badly, Democrats lied about it;
(3) After they were busted on their lie, the Obama administration began dumping thousands of guns in the hands of Mexican criminals.
We also know that hundreds of people were murdered with these U.S.-government-supplied guns, including at least one American, U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
But let’s look on the bright side. The BATF was originally going to ship warheads to Iran until realizing the explosions might disable the tracking devices.
(Contrary to more Democrat lies, there was no such program to dump thousands of guns in Mexico under George W. Bush. The Bush administration did have a program that put GPS trackers on about 100 guns in order to actually trace them. That operation was ended almost as soon as it began because of the lack of cooperation from Mexican officials. You may as well say Holder’s program was “started” by the first cop who ever put tracer dye on contraband.)
No one has explained what putting 2,500 untraceable guns in the hands of Mexican drug dealers was supposed to accomplish.
But you know what that might have accomplished? It would make the Democrats’ lie retroactively true — allowing them to push for the same gun restrictions they were planning when they first concocted it. A majority of guns recovered from Mexican criminals would, at last, be American guns, because Eric Holder had put them there.
Unfortunately for the Democrats, some brave whistleblower inside the government leaked details of this monstrous scheme. As soon as Congress and the public demanded answers, Holder clammed up. He just says “oops” — and accuses Republicans of racism.
Tax-exempt Media Matters ramps up support for Obama during election year Published: 1:09 AM 06/13/2012 Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2012/06/13/tax-exempt-media-matters-ramps-up-support-for-obama-during-election-year/#ixzz1y6E1tW5I
A content analysis by The Daily Caller shows that the tax-exempt liberal messaging organization has steadily committed more of its resources to defending Obama from critical media coverage during 2012.
Between May 29, the day Mitt Romney crossed the delegate threshold to secure the GOP nomination, and June 11, fully 60 percent of the Web articles produced by Media Matters have set out to defend the president.
During the same time frame in 2011, a non-election year, just 39 percent of the group’s online posts mention Obama.
This year, those ever-supportive mentions typically peak between Tuesday and Thursday of each week. The timing and regularity of the spikes in Obama coverage may reflect the group’s publishing schedule, but the focus of those peaks represents an all-in approach to pushing back against critiques of the president.
In recent weeks, peak Obama mentions on the Media Matters website revolved around the issues for which the president has taken the heaviest political fire:
Commentators across the political spectrum later pointed out that such a move would not be unprecedented. “[T]here is ample precedent for the Supreme Court voiding laws passed by Congress,” wrote FactCheck.org. “In fact, overturning unconstitutional laws has been part of the Supreme Court’s job description for more than two centuries.” (RELATED: Media Matters pulled hard for Hillary Clinton in 2008)
On April 13, Media Matters attempted to deflate conservatives’ uproar over Obama supporter Hilary Rosen’s televised claim that Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, “never worked a day in her life,” calling the anger a “distraction.” Ann Romney is a stay-at-home mother.
April 18 saw Media Matters rushing to Obama’s aid after musician Ted Nugent made a Secret Service visit-inducing claim that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
Several audio clips of Rush Limbaugh appeared on the Media Matter website April 24 after Limbaugh dinged President Obama for attempting to bolster federal student loans despite the massive debt already saddling student borrowers. Media Matters also flagged Limbaugh’s criticism of Obama’s role in the killing of Osama bin Laden.
On May 9 and 10, Media Matters went wall-to-wall with praise for the president’s decision to announce his “personal” support of gay marriage, while simultaneously highlighting disappointed reactions from writers who advocated traditional Christian views.
Media Matters accused Breitbart.com on May 18 of being “wildly incompetent” for an exclusive story featuring a promotional pamphlet created in the early 1990s by President Obama’s literary agency — a publication that described Obama as a young writer who was “born in Kenya.”
Fox News was the subjectof seven separate May 30 Media Matters articles after the cable channel released a branded video segment that was critical of Obama’s time in the White House.
And on June 7 Media Matters deployed a suite of eight Web articles in an attempt to extinguish the widespread perception that former President Bill Clinton had gone off script from the Obama campaign’s talking points on several occasions. Among other surprises, Clinton told long-time pal Harvey Weinstein, then sitting in for Piers Morgan on CNN, that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney had a “sterling” record in the business world.
As a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, Media Matters is not permitted to campaign for or against any candidate for elective public office.
But the rules for such government-approved non-profits are advantageously vague and permissive, and Media Matters has so far avoided publicized federal government scrutiny of its qualifications for an income tax exemption — outside of causing concern among congressional Republicans in February.
Media Matters has used that 501(c)(3) status to wage a declared “war” on Fox News Channel, which the group has referred to as the “de facto leader of the GOP,” and to offer regularly published support to Democrats.
TheDC has reported that Media Matters maintains a close working relationship with the Obama White House.
The Washington Free Beacon reported in May that Media Matters executive vice president Ari Rabin-Havt was overheard at a Democratic donors meeting “bragging about a phone call he had received from Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for the Obama re-election team.”
Neither Rabin-Havt nor Cutter responded to TheDC’s questions about the specifics of that conversation.
