Good News For The Second Amendment
We’re getting there. James Jaeger has announced that he has filmed all the interviews for the upcoming documentary movie, “Molon Labe!: How The Second Amendment Guarantees America’s Freedom”. He has asked me to thank each of you who have sent in your support to make all that happen. I’m excited. Here’s why.
I have just seen an hour of the rough-cut for the movie, with segments from each of the experts who are featured in the film, and it’s awesome! I’m sure each of you who has contributed will be proud to be a part of this. I’m already seeing it as a great tool for RT&I in Oath Keepers outreach program. I’m sure we’ll carry it at our online store, and other web operations have asked to carry it. Like James’ “Fiat Empire”, millions will see it.
Oath Keepers Founder, Stewart Rhodes, shines nicely in this movie. Stewart’s footage was filmed on a very snowy day in the Swan Mountain range in northwest Montana, at a charming high-country retreat, and Stewart was relaxed and comfortable. His dialogue comes across the screen in as good a showing as I’ve seen. Our members will love his hard-hittlng matter-of-fact delivery of our principles and their relationship with the Second Amendment.
But also there to be interviewed on that wintry day was Oath Keepers’ national chaplain, Pastor Chuck Baldwin. Chuck’s scenes in the film are excellent. Both Stewart and Chuck lend a solid dignity to the movie.
All of this is good news because the movie has the right message for America, and Oath Keepers is helping produce it. We’re doing that by spreading the word for fund-raising to complete the film. For that commitment James has awarded us the “In Association With” opening film credit, which is an awesome gift for our future outreach. I firmly believe that millions of Americans will be talking about this film as soon as it’s finished, packaged, and made ready for distribution.
Check out the trailer to see this-
The first person to be interviewed for this movie was former Texas Congressman and Presidential candidate Ron Paul. Stewart Rhodes, Chuck Baldwin, and Ron Paul were soon joined in the movie by Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America (GOA), who always works nicely with Stewart – recall: Larry Pratt gave the prayer at our Oath Ceremony on Lexington Green, Massachusetts, this past April 19, 2013.

Can you imagine sitting in a room with Stewart Rhodes, Chuck Baldwin, Ron Paul, and Larry Pratt, all discussing the necessity for a return to the Constitutional Militia of the several States? The very thought of it is exciting! But James has included even more. His movie also features Pat Buchanan, G. Edward Griffin, Jack Rooney, David R. Gillie, Alex Jones, and Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr.
That is an impressive lineup of powerful men who are devoted to the entire U.S. Constitution, as written, with emphasis on the Second Amendment. For an hour and a half, anyone who watches this film will have the nation’s most knowledgeable gun rights advocates talking freely about America, our roots in freedom, and how the Second Amendment is the answer to today’s tyrannical General government in Washington D.C. That is an exciting thought.
The final word on the Second Amendment, and the inspiration for the movie Molon Labe!, has been written by Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr. You may read a great review by Nelson Hultberg <here>
You may find your own copy of the book as a CD-Rom at Amazon dot com.
Every American is duty-bound. We are the Militia, all of us, and as we’ll see in the movie, the Constitution mandates it. Molon Labe! shows how we as Americans can take our country back, get back to personal freedom and self-responsibility, by honoring and living up to the Constitution. It is the consciousness of this nation’s founders, and it served us well until we let the General government grow too large and begin to run our lives.
That is why James searched for the finest voices in America for the film. And now they are all filmed. As they say in film-making lore, “they’re ‘in the can’”. As you’ll see below, this is a chance to get your chapter or group into the end credits of the movie. I would like to see every liberty-related organization in America pitch in and get their group’s name in the credits on this film. Think about it – where else could one find an opportunity to receive end-credits recognition for good supportive work on a movie project with Pat Buchanan, Stewart Rhodes, Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin, and all those other guys?
Now James Jaeger is putting all the interviews together. I feel very fortunate to have watched as the script was finalized and then the participants were scheduled and filmed. Now I’m happy knowing James is busily making it all come together in his Matrix Entertainment studio. The project has spent about fifty thousand dollars thus far, (I have not checked for exact figures), with most of that money coming from grassroots Americans like you who want to help make this movie happen.
We are now seeking final financing for the studio and production work. It’s coming in, but the sooner it’s in, the more quickly James can finish this film and make it available.
James is offering screen credits for donations of one hundred dollars or more. You can get your or your group’s name in the end-credits of the movie for only a hundred dollars. As I work with Montana Oath Keepers, I’m going to ask our members in Montana to fork over a hundred dollars so “Montana Oath Keepers” will be in the credits. It would be cool to see other State or County chapters and groups listed there too. How about you, Florida and Connecticut Oath Keepers, New York and Alabama Oath Keepers, Nevada and Nebraska Oath Keepers? Getting into the end credits will help finalize the movie and make us all look better while we’re at it.
James and Oath Keepers would like to thank each of you who have already donated to this film. I would like to pass along an observation James told me recently. The collectivist progressive gun-control lobby funds Michael Moore’s anti-gun films with a couple million dollars or more. James is making Constitutional films of the highest quality for just over a hundred thousand dollars each, and he’s doing it as a work of love. All of his Constitution-oriented films are funded in part by a few producers and many grassroots contributions. His first one, Fiat Empire, got more than five million downloads and was passed around at Tea Party rallies all over the country. Molon Labe! is hitting right on the mark where timing is concerned, for this year has seen a renewed attempt by the gun control lobby that has awakened millions of Americans to the government’s intent. This film will be like new ammo for our ongoing war to keep our guns.
So here is how you can share in this project personally. Go <here> and make your donation, and then spread this article around to family and friends and let them know that this is hope for America and that by donating whatever they can, they will help produce a movie which will be viewed by millions of Americans this year – just in time to be a hot item during the 2014 election cycle. Do it now, right? You can be part of the good news for the Second Amendment. Thank You!

Times change and lines sometimes become blurred. New Orleans and Boston have seen a military involvement with “law enforcement” on American streets. Here are two links which excitable citizens can easily misinterpret to their own dismay -
You and I know better than to be overly concerned about this kind of morph, but many Americans right now would not trust anything “government” any further than they could throw it. Still, you and I remain calm and collected in our speculations about what “might happen if“.
Before Katrina struck New Orleans no one would have believed that U.S. troops would be going door to door confiscating citizens’ personal guns, but that line blurred in the exigency of the moment and the dark deed was indeed done.
In April 2013 the Boston bombing saw another line being blurred when the military suddenly popped into view working side by side with local police –
As awakened Americans know, the Fusion Centers of the Department of Homeland Security have interfaced local police with the U.S. military. Some of us see good reason to break that coupling. The three torrid scandals presently rocking Washington D.C. indicate that the force of government can and will be sometimes brought to bear on citizens merely on grounds of their opposition to political policy. Owing to obvious lying by top officials in the current regime, there is a climate of distrust overshadowing the General government.
It is a good time to place Oath Keepers billboards near military bases around America, because many signs indicate that in the event of an unusual exigency our own military could be called down upon the American people right here in their own country.
Back in January of 2011 Julie Watson of the Associated Press announced the following –
A mock city roughly the size of downtown San Diego has risen in a remote Southern California desert to train military forces to fight in urban environments.
The $170 million urban training center was unveiled Tuesday at the Twentynine Palms military base, 170 miles northeast of San Diego.
The 1,560-building facility will allow troops to practice and refine skills that can be used around the world, the Marine Corps said.
Please read that article at original site: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/41258569/ns/us_news-life/t/million-mock-city-rises-marine-base/#.Uam0I8p5v-U
In another accounting of the opening of this desert training center Kelly O’Sullivan of The Desert Trail notes on January 28, 2011:
Shortly after Brig. Gen. H. Stacy Clardy III cut the ribbon on the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center’s new $170 million urban warfare training facility Tuesday, Jan. 25, the base commanding general stood atop one of its 1,250 cargo-container buildings with an enthusiastic group of visitors and watched a platoon of Marines storm a building in one of its seven districts.
The men of 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment out of Camp Pendleton, in their fifth of 36 days of pre-deployment Enhanced Mojave Viper training at CAMOUT — short for Combined Arms Military Operations in Urban Terrain — roared up in light armored vehicles and tanks, barreling out to take up positions on the ground, rifles at the ready.
That article is found here: http://www.hidesertstar.com/the_desert_trail/news/article_d352c986-f766-5368-8e26-d406e4c3490f.html
I mention the above because the featured urban warfare training city is actually pegged to the U.S. Marine Corps base at Twentynine Palms, California. Twentynine Palms, California, is where retired Lt.CDR “Guy” Cunningham conducted his widely-known survey of Marines in which he asked the Marines if they would fire on Americans who refused, in the face of government orders, to turn in their personal guns. A surprising number of the Marines said that they would fire on Americans who disobeyed a law requiring them to turn in their personal weapons. (Thankfully, the large majority of Marines responding to that question stated that they would not fire on Americans who resisted gun confiscation, but some said they would.)
All things considered, Oath Keepers, on May 24, 2013, leased a billboard in the town of Twentynine Palms, California, and placed this remarkable message on that billboard for all to see -
Oath Keepers would like to thank Michele Imburgia, Josh Holkesvig, John Oetken, and Jeff Ford for spear-heading the successful mission to place our billboard at Twentynine Palms, California.
Additionally, Oath Keepers has a billboard up at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, and is in process of securing billboards for Ft. Hood, Texas, and Fort Rucker, Alabama, with more to follow those. Oath Keepers would like to thank each patriot who donated to our billboard fund.

Who: Oath Keepers / Jeffrey Earnhardt
What: Public Awareness Campaign to bring the Oath Keepers’ message to the NASCAR audience and general public by running a NASCAR race car driven by Jeffrey Earnhardt. Oath Keepers is asking like-minded Americans to donate to get the Oath Keepers race car on the track and get our message about defending the Constitution out to millions.
Where & When: Dover International Speedway Dover, DE. Saturday, June 01 02:30 PM ET - TV: ESPN – Radio: MRN. The television audience is 1.5 million people average for this race (Should exceed this number with the move from ESPN2 to ESPN), Race attendance for the NNS race will be 40,000 people. Jeffrey will also do media promoting the Oath Keepers message leading into the race weekend, reaching millions more. In addition, the social media push using the Earnhardt brand will get attention and help spread the Oath Keepers message to millions prior to the race.
WHY: To get the message out to the public that our Constitution is at risk and those of us who took the Oath to protect and defend it cannot sit quietly by while it’s dismantled. There are millions of veterans and active duty NASCAR fans who need to hear our message about their oath responsibilities. Jeffrey Earnhardt is an American patriot who gets it and wants to do what he can to help carry the message.
”Oath Keepers are those who stepped forward, raised their hand and are willing to die to protect and defend our Constitution; that means everything to me and I’m honored to be a part of this.” – Jeffrey Earnhardt
RECAP: Jeffery Earnhardt will take a stand for liberty on June 1st by driving the Oath Keepers car at Dover Delaware . We need you to help us put the car on the track.
This car represents the values we share as Americans who stand ready to defend the constitution at all costs. Oath Keepers is comprised of active duty military, police, veterans, first responders, and any freedom loving American who shares the enlightened vision of the founding fathers. Your donation will speak loudly to all the foes of our Republic, both foreign and domestic, so please be as generous as you can to help preserve the liberty we cherish.
NOTE FROM STEWART RHODES, FOUNDER OF OATH KEEPERS:
This is a rare opportunity to bring the Oath Keepers message to millions of NASCAR fans. Many of them are veterans, and there are also a large number of active duty military who watch NASCAR. Jeffrey Earnhardt comes from a legendary family of racers, and we are most honored that he has stepped up to help us defend the Constitution. He brings great credit to his family and to his sport by doing this, and he deserves our full support. All donations go directly to getting this car on the track. It will take $30,000.00 to get it done, but I am confident that with your help, we can do it. This is the first of what we hope will be many races run with an Oath Keepers car. The potential exposure is in the tens of millions. This could help make Oath Keepers a household name, and help to spread our message about the oath to millions of Americans who may not yet be fully awake to the ongoing assault on our Bill of Rights, and the rapidly increasing destruction of our Republic. You know how late the hour is. Help us awaken the “Sleeping Giant.” And besides, just imagine Mark Potok’s face when he sees this car on the track. Priceless! - For the Republic, Stewart Rhodes (U.S. Army Airborne disabled Veteran, Yale Law graduate, and Founder of Oath Keepers).
Oath Keepers to Muster on Lexington Battle Green, MA on April 19, 2013: Stewart Rhodes Will Conduct Oath Renewal Ceremony
Captain John Parker: “Stand Your Ground. Do Not Fire Unless Fired Upon. But If They Mean To Have A War, Let It Begin Here.”
Oath Keepers will be mustering on Lexington Green, in Lexington Massachusetts, this April 19, 2013! Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers, has been invited to speak at a rally being held on the Green by the Massachusetts chapter of Gun Rights Across America. The organizers of the rally have also extended an invitation to all Oath Keepers to attend the rally and take part in honoring our fallen heroes of the first battle of the American Revolution, and in taking a stand in defense of our right to bear arms.
At the conclusion of Stewart’s speech, he will lead the audience in an oath renewal ceremony.
EVENT UPDATE: Pastor Chuck Baldwin (Oath Keepers National Chaplain) will speak at both the Lexington Battle Green event, and at the later rally in West Springfield, Massachusetts. He is a dynamic speaker, and will add tremendously to both events.
Here are the details on the Lexington gathering:
Gun Rights Across America “Muster on the Battle Green” Rally.
Lexington Battle Green, Lexington, Massachusetts
APRIL 19, 2013
12pm to 4pm
From Gun Rights Across America: Massachusetts:
Gun Rights Across America: Massachusetts, cordially invites one and all to attend our Pro-Second Amendment Rally.
Please join on us on April 19th, from Noon to 4:00pm, on the Lexington Battle Green, in Lexington MA. for the “Muster on the Battle Green” rally.
We will have many keynote speakers to charge the rally. We want our elected officials to hear the voice of the majority, the law abiding, Constitution loving Patriots.
Tell one and all that we will be rallying on the Battle Green that changed America forever. Where the famous “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” occured. It’s time to call on the ghosts of our ancestors and forefathers to engergize us into continuing the good fight to protect our 2A rights.
Like and share this, lets make this a rally to be remembered!
Please remember concealed carry only. No open cary of any type of firearms.
Pastor Chuck Baldwin, the Oath Keepers National Chaplain, will also be speaking. Larry Pratt, of Gun Owners of America, has also been invited, and we are waiting on confirmation that he can make it. Other speakers are being lined up now.
Please note that there will also be an additional rally on April 19th 3 – 7 PM, at the West Springfield Town Common, West Springfield, Massachusetts, conducted by Massachusetts Oath Keepers (see below for details).
NOTE FROM STEWART:
Oath Keepers, I never expected to have another chance to stand on Lexington Battle Green and conduct an oath renewal ceremony, like we did back on April 19, 2009 (which is listed as our official birth-date and place, as an org). But here we are, in 2013 and we have been handed yet another opportunity to do something remarkable, yet again. Hat’s off to Stephen Redfern of Gun Rights Across America, Massachusetts for jumping through all the hoops to get the permit to use the Green, and for inviting us to participate.
If you missed the chance to stand on the Lexington Battle Green in 2009 and renew your oath, you now have that chance, this April 19. And if you can make it, I urge you to do so (we apologize for the short notice, but that really couldn’t be helped).
I can tell you that it is a very moving, powerful experience to stand on the exact spot where Captain Parker and his men stood, where patriot blood watered the tree of Liberty, and the “shot heard round the world” was fired on April 19, 1775. And even more powerful to do so on the anniversary of that battle, April 19, and to then stand on that “venerable spot” and renew your oath to defend the Constitution – a truly amazing, once in a lifetime kind of experience.
When we conducted an oath renewal ceremony on the Battle Green in 2009, we were not doing something novel that had never been done before. To the contrary, we were following in the footsteps of men of the Founding generation who had also stood on Lexington Battle Green in 1798 to renew their oaths. Men of the First Brigade of the Third Division, Militia of Massachusetts – some who had fought in the battle back in 1775, along with their sons who now served in the militia – stood on Lexington Battle Green in formation and renewed their oaths, and then sent a proclamation to President John Adams, describing what they had done, and why. It is President Adams’ formal, written response that we quote on the back of our green “Lexington” shirt:
Oaths in this country are as yet universally considered as sacred obligations. That which you have taken and so solemnly repeated on that venerable spot, is an ample pledge of your sincerity and devotion to your country and its government. – President John Adams
The men of the Militia of Massachusetts had felt compelled to gather on the Battle Green and renew their oaths in a time of crisis in America, during the Quis-War with France, when many Americans were very divided politically, and passions were high. The men considered it essential that in that time of crisis they should come together and make it clear that their loyalty was first, and foremost, to the Constitution they swore to defend. And it should be noted that similar oath renewal ceremonies were conducted in multiple states, and by both Federalists and by Jeffersonian Republicans. Americans of both political parties renewed their oaths.
So, when we stood on Lexington Battle Green on April 19, 2009, to renew our oaths, we were merely honoring our forefathers and walking almost directly in their footsteps. And from that day forward we have conducted similar oath renewal ceremonies wherever we gather, as Oath Keepers.
It came as no surprise (a sad sign of the times) that immediately after our muster on April 19, 2009, we were viciously attacked by the radical left, and in particular by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Apparently, current serving and retired police and military are not supposed to renew their commitment to defend the Constitution, and specify certain things we will not do if ordered. The radical left considers that dangerous. Instead, according to them, we who are still serving have a duty to “just follow orders” and do whatever we are told to do. And the very existence of this organization, devoted to sincere keeping of oaths, and the improvement of constitutional knowledge among the current serving and veterans, is considered “dangerous” by the Marxists on the far left. So be it. We expected it.
But oddly enough, we have also at times been criticized by people on the Right for conducting oath renewal ceremonies, with some of them asserting we are asking people to take some additional oath, to Oath Keepers, or that we are being foolishly redundant. I have heard some say “I already took the oath, so why are they taking it all over again?” They are, of course, free to do as they please, but they display their ignorance of our own history when they condemn us for doing exactly the same thing the Founding Generation and their sons did back in 1798. Again, a sad sign of the times.
I invite you to join me on the Battle Green, on April 19, 2013, and renew your oath on that venerable spot, and by doing so, help revive and expand, and make it once again true, that fundamental requirement that “Oaths in this country are as yet universally considered as sacred obligations.“ We know that among the political class in this country, that is certainly not the case, but we can make it so among the warrior class – among our brothers-in-arms. And by doing so, we can change history. Let us lead by example.
And let us also revive the tradition of showing honor and respect to our war heroes of 1775, by making April 19 a day of remembrance and celebration for their having the courage and sense of duty to take up arms, in resistance, against tyranny. Let us honor them. April 19 – Patriots Day – SHOULD be celebrated across the land, just as solemnly and energetically as we celebrate Veterans Day or Independence Day. Let us make it so.
If you cannot join us, this April 19, on Lexington Battle Green or at the following rally by Massachusetts, then hold a gathering of remembrance and celebration wherever you are this April 19. Hold a rally if you can. But even if it is just you and a few friends at the shooting range, or having beers in a pub, take a moment to remember the men who stood their ground and only fired when fired upon, and their brothers who turned the tide at Concord Bridge, and then chased the bloody Regulars back to Boston, with their tails between their legs. Say a toast to them, give them a cheer, and then pledge to each other your mutual commitment to make sure that all their sacrifice was not in vain, and that you will do your part to keep alive the Sacred Fire of Liberty.
As you know, this nation is now following almost exactly in the same footsteps our Forefathers experienced in the lead-up to the American Revolution. Like them, we have suffered a long train of abuses, and our backs have been pushed up against the wall. Let us look for strength and courage by remembering their example, and by seeing clearly how we are standing in an unbroken line of defenders of liberty, that began at Lexington and Concord, and stretches through history to us here, today.
It is our watch now. Let us pray to God for the fortitude to do as they did, to defend home and liberty, at all costs, when our moment comes.
For the Republic!

Stewart Rhodes, Chuck Shea, and John Oetken will be gathering with the Oath Keepers in the area to formalize a Northern California Chapter. Please get the word out and spread this information and share the picture.
We will also be fundraising for the Oath Keeper Billboards to put up near Beale AFB California.
Oath Keepers, a national association of over 20,000 military, police, and first responders, is offering free instruction in the use of firearms and other methods of self defense to all teachers and school staff in the United States. This initiative is in response to the recent tragic mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. The volunteer instructors will be drawn from the member rolls of Oath Keepers in each state. Those instructors will be paired up with any teachers and school staff in the same state who contact Oath Keepers and request instruction.
The organization pledges to keep their identity confidential, but will also offer group lessons or to come to the school to teach the staff on-site. Topics will include defensive use of firearms, use of blunt objects and improvised objects for self-defense, use of knives, use of pepper spray, empty-hand defensive tactics, and methods of disarming an attacker who is armed with guns or knives, as well as crime awareness and crisis minset training. the first responders within the organization are being asked to volunteer to teach emergency first aid for serious trauma, including gunshot and knife wounds.
Oath Keepers Founder, Stewart Rhodes, issued a statement:
Children deserve to be defended. And the teachers and staff who are responsible for children during the school day deserve to know how to defend them – effectively, decisively, and at the very outset of an attack. And they deserve a fighting chance to defend themselves as well. It is not enough to tell them to sit tight and wait for the police to arrive. All too often, by the time the police get there, it is too late.
Teachers and school administrative staff need the tools and training to put a stop to the killing themselves. We have a duty to provide that training. Many of our members within Oath Keepers have substantial training and experience from their time in the military, police services, and service as first responders. Many of our members also have substantial training in both armed and unarmed self-defense methods from their continued study after service, or in addition to the training received while in service. We are calling on them to step up and volunteer their time, at no charge to the teachers and school staff, to pass on that vital, valuable knowledge.
Oath keepers is compiling a list of volunteer instructors in each state, that teachers and staff can select from. When a teacher or staff member contacts us, we will provide them with the contact information for the volunteer instructors in their area. They can then contact those instructors, and their identity will be kept strictly confidential. All instructors will sign a written confidentiality agreement to not disclose the identity of any teachers or staff who seek out instruction unless, and until they secure written permission from that particular student. The default will be complete confidentiality and non-disclosure of the identity of those seeking training, out of respect for their privacy.
However, if a school district or school faculty desires to have group instruction, or on-site instruction, that too is available.
Stay tuned, and check back, for more details on the volunteer instructor program.
Is Romney any different than Obama when it comes to the NDAA? Are you aware that the NDAA has placed every American citizen under military jurisdiction? Watch this speech by Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and contemplate the perils of voting for the lesser of two evils. This video is not an endorsement of Romney, Obama, or anyone else. It is an endorsement of voting one’s conscience when one participates in the democratic process. While Oath Keepers does not issue endorsements, Oath Keepers does encourage all members to participate in the political arena as best they can within the dictates of one’s individual conscience, by voting in elections for government offices.
This is Stewart Rhodes speaking in his individual capacity — not speaking as an officer in Oath Keepers:
