Are You Prepared for an Emergency?

So your bug out bag is packed and in its readily available spot in the closet. You got the SUV installed with the latest brackets to quickly install your heavy firing machinery for the zombie apocalypse. You even have you a patch of grass picked out in the woods to retreat and stand your ground should the time arise. Sounds like you are ready for what may come your way whether it be a natural disaster or an “event.”  Are you really though? I mean, you have your supplies in the bug out bag. And you made what appears to be all the steps to maintain your survival, but what about food? I’m talking about non G.M.O., long lasting, emergency sustainable quality food. Sure you could hunt in the woods for your food and give away your position by the gunfire or you could even try trapping and may have a somewhat success rate with that, but why not include food in your initial preparing?

Of all the radio shows I have done talking about this point the one thing that always comes up is the quality of food and the lasting freshness of today’s foods. Well theAwakening Liberty Store has all your food supply needs covered at one easy convenient location.

Alarm Bells Ringing: Chaos Over Food In New Jersey US News

Alarm Bells Ringing: Chaos Over Food In New Jersey

upload.jpg
A recent story from Susan Duclos on ANP told us that internet outages across America are now increasing in frequency, leading her to ask if 'BETA tests' are being conducted on the internet 'kill switch' which will most likely be used if mass civil unrest breaks out across the country. In fact, as we're told by our videographer in the 1st video below, FEMA, the DHS, and the US Air Force are all conducting massive riot control drills and operations around the same time as 'Democracy Spring', massive threats of earthquakes and natural disasters unlike anything we've seen in most of our lifetimes. Is all of this just a coincidence or should alarm bells be ringing?

The story on Monday from Natural News tells us that hungry people in New Jersey had begun raiding other people's homes looking for food and inciting just the kind of chaos that Susan previously warned us about. Though on a much smaller scale than the nationwide riot/collapse preparation that is now taking place across the country according to this recent story from Don't Comply, we're reminded that the well distracted public are focused upon bathroom use rights, celebrities and debating who'll be the next leader of this fledgling Republic while it is quickly being turned into a 'totalitarian police state'.

As Alex Jones of Infowars asks in the 2nd video below, will societal meltdown lead to the collapse of America and are we now witnessing the 'beginning of the end'? Jones reminds us that all great nations eventually fall and the United States will not be an exception, especially considering the direction we're now rapidly heading.

upload.jpg
While ANP has been quick to report upon the huge difference between a 'dictatorial, totalitarian police state', which we are completely against, and our public servants who we fully support, the brave men and women who serve our communities, cities and states and country every day across the nation while putting their own lives at risk, unfortunately there is a great potential for crossover. With law enforcement agencies all across the world now purchasing riot control gear 'en masse', we see more proof that preparation is taking place at the highest levels for the collapse of the current economic system and the total breakdown of society and as Gregory Mannarino tells us in the 3rd video below, we have reached 'situation critical' and a 'financial monster' is now among us.

All of this provides us with more reasons to be 'prepared' for what is undoubtedly coming, possibly as soon as October according to Bill Holter who warned in this story by Susan Duclos at ANP that the entire system may come down within 48 hours if we see a big enough failure somewhere within the system:

"This is the end game; these are the end days of the current system; not so sure we are going to get to October" before the entire system closes.

As 'preppers', we have a great opportunity to 'assist' law and order since 'preppers' will not be among those rioting in the streets for food or breaking into others homes or stores looking for ways to feed our families. While a countless number of Americans who didn't prepare for a future involving collapse will surely involve themselves in breaking the law, preppers will be the ones who help to 'maintain the law' and certainly won't be assisting those who are in the streets causing havoc.

upload.jpg
The signs of impending collapse continue to unfold all around us. When looking at the study below of riot gear purchases across the world, the one thing that stands out to us more than anything else is the fact that, despite nations such as Iran, Egypt, Russia, China and Thailand procuring massive amounts of riot control gear, the largest region for riot control systems is the Americas. What do they know that the majority of the American people DON'T know? 'Preppers' clearly know at least part of what government knows. From NewsMaker.com via SandlerResearch.org:

The analysts forecast the global riot control system market to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during the period 2016-2020. According to the report,demand for small UAVs in law enforcement is driving the market growth. UAVs are equipped with a broad range of systems such as airframe, autopilot, navigation system, sensor package, and communications links. There is an increased demand for UAVs globally, owing to its wide range of applications in the civil, commercial, and military market.

Law enforcement agencies around the world are the biggest market for riot control systems. This market is expected to generate revenues of over USD 3.5 billion by the end of 2020. Countries such as the US, Iran, Egypt, Russia, China, and Thailand have started procuring riot control equipment and are investing heavily in NWLs. Moreover, special vehicles that are equipped with water cannon and reservoirs have been designed for security personnel, for use in areas of conflict to handle large crowds and demonstration. Demand for such equipment is expected to rise during the next few years.

The largest region for riot control systems is the Americas, and forecasted growth of this region is a CAGR of just over 4%. In North America, the prominent markets are Canada and the US and the law enforcement agencies in these nations are best equipped with the upgraded weapons. The militarization of the police department and other law enforcement agencies in the Americas has encouraged the use of advanced riot control equipment. The disputed circumstances of shooting unarmed 18-year-old heightened existing protests and civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, US in 2014. Rifles, NWLs, and heavy vehicles were used to control the crowd and growing protests during this incident.

upload.jpg
The stories out in the last few days along include: "Former Air Force Officer Warns Of Atmospheric Spraying And The Coming Collapse" from Dane Wigington at his GeoEngineering Watch. "A Total Game Changer - From Over-Population To De-Population" from Zero Hedge who also published "A Bird's-Eye View Of How The US Economy Is Falling Apart (In 4 Simple Charts". Over at SHTFPlan, Doug Casey warns: "It's The Next Stage Of The Greater Depression...The Economy Is Going To Be Very, Very Bad"while Jeremiah Johnson at SHTFPlan tells us "Possible End Game: The United States Has Created A Climate That Could Easily Be Transformed Into A War".

Are we now witnessing signs of impending collapse and the 'end game' for America? The best that we can do as caring American citizens is to continue to prepare for collapse, for to do so is to prepare ones self and family for natural disasters, bank collapses, EMP, war or any other possible catastrophe that would shut down the entire system. All of this preparation for riots, civil unrest and mass social upheavel is clearly heading in a direction that soon will not be able to be undone. As Mannarino tells us, a 'financial monster' awaits us and is now among us. Only time separates now from the inevitable.

Wake Up! This is for the Nothing is Happening Crowd!

wakeup-statement-sleep-physicians

A lot of people out there expected something to happen in September that did not ultimately happen.  There were all kinds of wild theories floating around, and many of them had no basis in reality whatsoever.  But without a doubt, some very important things did happen in September.  As I warned about ahead of time, we are witnessing the most significant global financial meltdown since the end of 2008.  All of the largest stock markets in the worldare crashing simultaneously, and so far the amount of wealth that has been wiped out worldwide is in excess of 5 trillion dollars.  In addition to stocks, junk bonds are also crashing, and Bank of America says that it is a “slow moving trainwreck that seems to be accelerating“.  Thanks to the commodity price crash, many of the largest commodity traders on the planet are now imploding.  I wrote about the death spiral that has gripped Glencore yesterday.  On Tuesday, the stock price of the largest commodity trader in Asia, the Noble Group, plummeted like a rock and commodity trading giant Trafigura appears to be in worse shape than either Glencore or the Noble Group.  The total collapse of any of them could easily be a bigger event than the implosion of Lehman Brothers in 2008.  So I honestly do not understand the “nothing is happening” crowd.  It takes ignorance on an almost unbelievable level to try to claim that “nothing is happening” in the financial world right now.

Within the last 60 days, we have seen some things happen that we have never seen before.

For example, did you know that we witnessed the greatest intraday stock market crash in U.S. history on August 24th?

During that day, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged from a high of 16,459.75 to a low of 15,370.33 before rebounding substantially. That intraday point swing of 1,089 points was the largest in all of U.S. history.

Overall, the Dow has down 588.40 points that day.  When you combine that decline with the 530.94 point plunge from the previous Friday, you get a total drop of 1119.34 points over two consecutive trading days.  Never before in history had the Dow fallen by more than 500 points on two trading days in a row.  If that entire decline had fallen within one trading day, it would have been the largest stock market crash in U.S. history by a very wide margin, and everyone would be running around saying that author Jonathan Cahn was right again.

But because this massive decline fell over two consecutive trading days that somehow makes him wrong?

Are you kidding me?

Come on people – let’s use some common sense here.  We are already witnessing the greatest global stock market decline in seven years, and after a brief lull things are starting to accelerate once again.  Last night, stocks in Hong Kong were down 629 points and stocks in Japan were down 714 points.  In the U.S., the Nasdaq has had a string of down days recently, and the “death cross” that has just formed has many investors extremely concerned

The Nasdaq composite spooked investors on Monday after forming a death cross, a trading pattern that shows a decline in short-term momentum and is often a precursor to future losses.

A death cross occurs when the short-term moving average of a security or an index pierces below the long-term trend, in this case the 50-day moving average breaking through the 200-day moving average.

In the past month, similar chart patterns formed in the S&P 500, Dow and small-cap Russell 2000, but the Nasdaq avoided a death cross formation until Monday.

What we witnessed in September was not “the end” of anything.

Instead, it is just the beginning.

And if you listen carefully, some of the biggest names on Wall Street are issuing some very ominous warnings about what is coming.  For instance, just consider what Carl Icahn is saying

Danger ahead—that’s the warning from Carl Icahn in a video coming Tuesday.

The activist says low rates caused bubbles in art, real estate and high-yield bonds—with potentially dramatic consequences.

“It’s like giving somebody medicine and this medicine is being given and given and given and we don’t know what’s going to happen – you don’t know how bad it’s going to be. We do know when we did it a few years ago it caused a catastrophe, it caused ’08. Where do you draw the line?”

Even people like Jim Cramer are starting to freak out.  He recently told his audience that “we have a first-class bear market going”

Jim Cramer, the ex-hedge fund manager and host of CNBC’s show “Mad Money,” has been vocal recently on air, saying repeatedly that he doesn’t like the market now, and last week said “we have a first-class bear market going.” Similarly, Gary Kaltbaum, president of Kaltbaum Capital Management, has been sending out notes to clients and this newspaper for weeks, saying the poor price action of the stock market and many hard-hit sectors, such as energy and the recently clobbered biotech sector, has all the earmarks of a bear market. Over the weekend, Kaltbaum said: “We remain in a worldwide bear market for stocks.”

As I have warned repeatedly, there will continue to be ups and downs.  The stock market is not going to fall every day.  In fact, on some days stocks will absolutely soar.

But without a doubt, we have entered the period of time that I have warned about for so long.  The global financial system is now beginning to unravel, and any piece of major bad news will likely accelerate things.

For instance, the total collapse of Deutsche Bank, Petrobras, Glencore, the Noble Group, Trafigura or any of a number of other major financial institutions that I am currently watching could create mass panic on the global financial stage.

In addition, an unexpected natural disaster that hits a financially important major city or a massive terror attack in the western world are other examples of things that could accelerate this process. nothing  

Our world is becoming increasingly unstable, and we all need to learn to expect the unexpected.

The period of relative peace and security that we all have been enjoying for so long is ending, and now chaos is going to reign for a time.

So get prepared while you still can, because there is very little time remaining to do so…

The Stock Markets Of The 10 Largest Global Economies Are All Crashing

Globe Interconnectedness

By Michael Snyder, on September 24th, 2015

You would think that the simultaneous crashing of all of the largest stock markets around the world would be very big news.  But so far the mainstream media in the United States is treating it like it isn’t really a big deal.  Over the last sixty days, we have witnessed the most significant global stock market decline since the fall of 2008, and yet most people still seem to think that this is just a temporary “bump in the road” and that the bull market will soon resume.  Hopefully they are right.  When the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted 777 points on September 29th, 2008 everyone freaked out and rightly so.  But a stock market crash doesn’t have to be limited to a single day.  Since the peak of the market earlier this year, the Dow is down almost three times as much as that 777 point crash back in 2008.  Over the last sixty days, we have seen the 8th largest single day stock market crash in U.S. history on a point basis and the 10th largest single day stock market crash in U.S. history on a point basis.  You would think that this would be enough to wake people up, but most Americans still don’t seem very alarmed.  And of course what has happened to U.S. stocks so far is quite mild compared to what has been going on in the rest of the world.

Right now, stock market wealth is being wiped out all over the planet, and none of the largest global economies have been exempt from this.  The following is a summary of what we have seen in recent days…

#1 The United States – The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down more than 2000 points since the peak of the market.  Last month we saw stocks decline by more than 500 points on consecutive trading days for the first time ever, and there has not been this much turmoil in U.S. markets since the fall of 2008.

#2 China – The Shanghai Composite Index has plummeted nearly 40 percent since hitting a peak earlier this year.  The Chinese economy is steadily slowing down, and we just learned that China’s manufacturing index has hit a 78 month low.

#3 Japan – The Nikkei has experienced extremely violent moves recently, and it is now down more than 3000 points from the peak that was hit earlier in 2015.  The Japanese economy and the Japanese financial system are both basket cases at this point, and it isn’t going to take much to push Japan into a full-blown financial collapse.

#4 Germany – Almost one-fourth of the value of German stocks has already been wiped out, and this crash threatens to get much worse.  The Volkswagen emissions scandal is making headlines all over the globe, and don’t forget to watch for massive trouble at Germany’s biggest bank.

#5 The United Kingdom – British stocks are down about 16 percent from the peak of the market, and the UK economy is definitely on shaky ground.

#6 France – French stocks have declined nearly 18 percent, and it has become exceedingly apparent that France is on the exact same path that Greece has already gone down.

#7 Brazil – Brazil is the epicenter of the South American financial crisis of 2015.  Stocks in Brazil have plunged more than 12,000 points since the peak, and the nation has already officially entered a new recession.

#8 Italy – Watch Italy.  Italian stocks are already down 15 percent, and look for the Italian economy to make very big headlines in the months ahead.

#9 India – Stocks in India have now dropped close to 4000 points, and analysts are deeply concerned about this major exporting nation as global trade continues to contract.

#10 Russia – Even though the price of oil has crashed, Russia is actually doing better than almost everyone else on this list.  Russian stocks have fallen by about 10 percent so far, and if the price of oil stays this low the Russian financial system will continue to suffer.

What we are witnessing now is the continuation of a cycle of financial downturns that has happened every seven years.  The following is a summary of how this cycle has played out over the past 50 years

  • It started in 1966 with a 20 percent stock market crash.
  • Seven years later, the market lost another 45 percent (1973-74).
  • Seven years later was the beginning of the “hard recession” (1980).
  • Seven years later was the Black Monday crash of 1987.
  • Seven years later was the bond market crash of 1994.
  • Seven years later was 9/11 and the 2001 tech bubble collapse.
  • Seven years later was the 2008 global financial collapse.
  • 2015: What’s next?

A lot of people were expecting something “big” to happen on September 14th and were disappointed when nothing happened.

But the truth is that it has never been about looking at any one particular day.  Over the past sixty days we have seen absolutely extraordinary things happen all over the planet, and yet some people are not even paying attention because they did not meet their preconceived notions of how events should play out.

And this is just the beginning.  We haven’t even gotten to the great derivatives crisis that is coming yet.  All of these things are going to take time to fully unfold.

A lot of people that write about “economic collapse” talk about it like it will be some type of “event” that will happen on a day or a week and then we will recover.

Well, that is not what it is going to be like.

You need to be ready to endure a very, very long crisis.  The suffering that is coming to this nation is beyond what most of us could even imagine.

Even now we are seeing early signs of it.  For instance, the mayor of Los Angeles says that the growth of homelessness in his city has gotten so bad that it is now“an emergency”

On Tuesday, Los Angeles officials announced the city’s homelessness problem has become an emergency, and proposed allotting $100 million to help shelter the city’s massive and growing indigent population.

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti also issued a directive on Monday evening for the city to free up $13 million to help house the estimated 26,000 people who are living on the city’s streets.

According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, the number of encampments and people living in vehicles has increased by 85% over the last two years alone.

And in recent years we have seen poverty absolutely explode all over the nation.  The “bread lines” of the Great Depression have been replaced with EBT cards, and there is a possibility that a government shutdown in October could “suspend or delay food stamp payments”

A government shutdown Oct. 1 could immediately suspend or delay food stamp payments to some of the 46 million Americans who receive the food aid.

The Agriculture Department said Tuesday that it will stop providing benefits at the beginning of October if Congress does not pass legislation to keep government agencies open.

“If Congress does not act to avert a lapse in appropriations, then USDA will not have the funding necessary for SNAP benefits in October and will be forced to stop providing benefits within the first several days of October,” said Catherine Cochran, a spokeswoman for USDA. “Once that occurs, families won’t be able to use these benefits at grocery stores to buy the food their families need.”

In the U.S. alone, there are tens of millions of people that could not survive without the help of the federal government, and more people are falling out of the middle class every single day.

Our economy is already falling apart all around us, and now another great financial crisis has begun.

When will the “nothing is happening” crowd finally wake up?

Hopefully it will be before they are sitting out on the street begging for spare change to feed their family.

IS THE CONSTITUTION STILL VALID?

IS THE CONSTITUTION STILL VALID?

 

Written By Michael Howell September 26th 2015

This has to be the main question we ask ourselves if we are to come to terms with foreign wars and the ever increasing globalism we are facing. With an out of hand Military Industrial Complex, horrible foreign policy, fictitious debt and monetary system, ever growing police state, military operations pointed at civilians, and a myriad of other liberty taking actions, once again, we have to ask is our Constitution valid? After all, we are sending soldiers at a record number to “fight” for it so we need to answer this question now, before we continue to support the agenda and goal of “democracy.”

Let’s look at the last word in that sentence before we go any farther. Democracy and what it means has been convoluted to mean many things and has been used to start and justify wars. So, what does it mean and are we a democracy? No, we are not. We are, and were always, a Constitutional Republic. It is very important to know the difference. Our founding fathers knew the difference and it can be referenced in many of their writings and speeches.

constitution-scroll-small

 

Before I list quotes of the founding fathers thoughts on democracy vs. republic, let’s look at what the Constitution, itself, says about the two.

Article IV Section 4, of the Constitution “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican Form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion”, the word Democracy is not mentioned in the Constitution at all.

We can now rest assure that the authors and founding fathers clearly wanted us to be a republic, not a democracy, as one cannot be both, as one cannot be socialist and fascist. Two separate forms of government. So, now let’s illustrate the point in more detail and look at direct quotes from those men that wrote the Constitution or had a hand in its conception.

“Hence it is that democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention: have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and in general have been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths…A republic, by which I mean a government in which a scheme of representation takes place, opens a different prospect and promises the cure for which we are seeking.” – James Madison, Federalist Papers No. 10 (1787)

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!” – Ben Franklin

“A democracy is nothing more than a mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Remember, democracy never last long. It soon wastes, exhaust, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. “– John Adams

There are many other quotes you can look up on your own time as it pertains to the difference of Republic vs. Democracy, but I feel the clear platform can be established by now concerning their thoughts on the Republic.

Now let’s define the two. What is a Republic? What is a democracy? In a Constitutional Republic, such as America, the individuals rights are protected and cannot be voted or taken away. In a democracy, I believe Thomas Jefferson as stated above, has given us the best definition. To paraphrase him, it is simply when fifty – one percent rule over the remaining forty-nine percent. This is a slippery slope that was foreseen by the founders.

So, do we have any proof that the Constitution is invalid or has been usurped? Let’s take what President George Washington defined as the “liberty’s teeth”, the second amendment. Without this amendment we would not be able to protect the remaining Constitution or Bill of Rights. It is very short and cannot be misinterpreted unless approached from an angle to reject it.

 

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

There are two key words in this amendment. First, being “shall” as it is absolute and infringed, which means taken away or even regulated. So, how has the second amendment been infringed you ask? Gun ownership is at an all time high and rifle ranges seem to be busy nowadays so it must still be intact, right? Not so fast.

Look at cities like New Orleans, Chicago, New York City, and Detroit as example. They have the strictest gun control laws and ironically, have the highest violent crime rate, but that’s a topic for another article. Some cities have instituted a magazine capacity ban. That is an infringement. Let’s look at the sanctions we have on Russian made AK-47’s. That is a political infringement on gun ownership. And lastly, let’s look at the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. Many things are wrong with this. One being that a foreign government, United Nations, is dictating rights on a sovereign Republic. That is a blatant infringement on gun rights. There are other violations to the 2nd Amendment but just these examples alone are direct infringements. Is the Constitution still valid?

Now let’s look at the 4th Amendment. “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.”

Here we have that absolute word again – “shall.” Not a suggestion, but an absolute. Just as God used it in the Ten Commandments so that there is no other interpretation, the founders used it here as well and for the same reason. How is this being attacked you ask? We are seeing a gross amount of no knock raids on homes and properties. Property illegally seized and often times even destroyed or never returned back to the owners. The fourth amendment clearly states the process in which warrants are to be issued and executed. Look at another example, checkpoints on roads. We have all seen them used in the name of safety. Drunk driving checkpoint, insurance checkpoints, ect. This is a clear violation of the fourth amendment as everyone has the right to be secure in their persons, papers, houses, and effects. It is unconstitutional to stop every single vehicle without probable cause. Here there is no probable cause and we are guaranteed to travel freely unless suspected of a crime. The proper, ethical, and even Constitutional way to go about these practices are being ignored. I ask you again, is the Constitution still valid?

Wars, we all hate them, but at times may be necessary in order to maintain freedoms and liberties. The constitution has defined the way a Republic goes to war. It is by a Declaration of War, through Congress, by our representatives, using our voice. When was the last declaration of war? World War 2. The rest have been on U.N. sanctions or have been under the name of conflicts. This is illegal and needs to be reigned in as the consequences are grave. Article 1, Section 8 defines it this way. “The Congress shall have the power to…..declare war. Notice that absolute word, shall, again? That means go to congress and let the people voice their concerns and even approval, through their representatives. Not on United Nations sanctions or Presidential Executive Orders. I must ask you this again, is the Constitution still valid?

How about the 10th amendment? States rights were very key and instrumental in the establishment of the Republic as our founding fathers recognized all states do not live the same way and shouldn’t be governed the same way, or as in a blanket Federal law. States right’s is important in continuing a society free from government overreach. It secures the States govern themselves through the people of the States. Let’s look at the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. Regardless what side of the fence you fall on you cannot deny that state rights were ignored and trampled on. First, look at how it came to be law of the land. The Supreme Court does not have the power, under the Constitution, to creat laws, only rule on existing laws. In the case of gay marriage they created, wrote, ruled, and executed the law. In return they created a blanket law for the Republic, bypassing the 10th amendment. This is getting to be a continuing theme; however, I have to ask. Is the Constitution still valid?

The last example I will use is so important to free people that the founders made it the first amendment and that is free speech. There have been famous quotes such as; “the first amendment wasn’t meant to discuss the weather, but controversial things” that sums up the importance of free speech. How can we continue to be a free society and prosper if thoughts are suppressed and our voices silenced? We can’t be. This is imperative to talking ideas and concerns all the way through to conclusion so that all sides and all options are brought forward.

 

Now with the expansion of the N.S.A. spying program to include metadata of innocent individuals, our free speech has been compromised. It has been proven, much to their own admission, that they collect metadata on all person’s phone calls, emails, and even social media post. This is not free speech. This can also be tied into the 4th amendment as it is an unwarranted collection of someone’s rights since no warrant was filed on the said individual, instead collected on everyone as a whole. We are seeing a gross incline in political correctness which is silencing many thoughts and even keeping many from voicing their concerns out of fear of retaliation. This is a reminder of the Alien and Sedition Act that John Adams signed into law and then later felt obligated to repeal. We are starting to see things head that way again if we don’t act now. Any infringement on free speech is a infringement on all free speech. So in closing, I have to ask, is the Constitution valid?
