Note that "patriots" are included, in the Congressional Resolution below,
as un-American "threats to government"....and to anyone who knows even a
fraction of what lay, unrevealed and government-linked, behind the Oklahoma
City bombing, the PanAm 103 bombing, and TWA800 shootdown, and the World
Trade Centre bombing as well, such references to these events in connection
with the Constitutional militia are frankly ludicrous. That the militia has
constantly advocated a peaceful return to the Constitution and Bill of
Rights goes unremarked here.

        That the militias are composed of men and women of every colour, creed,
ethnic backgound and profession, bound together by a common love of liberty
and Constitutional government, is smeared over here by the accusation that
it is a "white-supremacist", racist movement.

        That terrorism by the government itself - notably at Waco and Ruby Ridge -
drove large numbers of the population to form, again, Constitutional
militias goes un-noted here. The Founding Fathers and the US Code sanction
and legitimize the militia; but it is Janet Reno and ilk who have been the
most powerful motivating forces in its modern re-birth. Credit should go
where it's due.

        Also un-noted is the fact that an Arizona judge threw out of court the
"charges" against six members of the so-called "Viper militia"...but the
only important thing here is that they were arrested. Half the truth is
much more handy than the whole truth in the demonization business!
Congress Demonizes Militia - H.Con.Res.206
[This has now gone to the Judiciary Committee.]
(From the Congressional Record via THOMAS search engine)
Representatives - August 02, 1996)

[Page: H9901]

The SPEAKER pro tempore. Under a previous order of the House, the
gentlewoman from Texas [Ms. Jackson-Lee] is recognized for 5 minutes.

Ms. JACKSON-LEE of Texas. Mr. Speaker, it has been a week, but certainly we
can say that though we may have disagreed, this Congress has attempted to
work on behalf of the American people. I would hope that even if something
is threatening, that something is confusing, that there is something that
we are not sure of, that we still, as a Congress, have the courage to bring
it to the attention of the American people.

        Today I presented to the American people House Concurrent Resolution 206,
which is a sense of Congress that expresses the threat to the security of
the American citizens and the U.S. Government by armed militia. This may
not be a popular stance, but it does us no good to hide from the issue.

        Mr. Speaker, one of the most energetic promoters of the growing
anti-government movement in 1995 was militia of Montana spokesperson Bob
Fletcher. Shortly after a 2-ton bomb destroyed the Murrah Federal Building
in Oklahoma, killing 169 people, Fletcher made an announcement to the
press: Expect more bombs.

        To date, as a freshman, we have not been able to secure from this House an
opportunity to have hearings on the militia.

        The U.S. Government is comprised of democratic institutions, and any
change to the Government should occur by peaceful means. Americans agree
with that. They believe in the first amendment, the right to freedom of
expression and the right to free association. They do not believe in
Oklahoma City, Pan Am 103, or TWA 800, and yes, they do not believe in the
confrontation of legitimate law enforcement officers by those who would
argue that they have the right to overthrow this Government.

        Several members of the Arizona militia have recently been arrested. Our
militias have repeatedly denounced the legitimacy of the U.S. Government.
Our militia consists of more than 800 groups that are active in more than
40 States.

        This resolution says that Congress resolves to prosecute and identify all
armed conspirators that are brought together to overthrow the Government of
the United States. It resolves that individuals and groups possessing
illegal possession of firearms and explosives should be prosecuted to the
fullest extent of the law by the Department of Justice, and, yes; it
resolves that individuals legally possessing firearms and explosives and
conspiring to destroy the U.S. Government should be prosecuted to the
fullest extent of the law.

        It is important to note that we are not making an issue out of something
that should not be made an issue of. The militia in America are convinced
that American people are being systematically oppressed by an illegal
totalitarian government that is intent of disarming all citizens and
creating one world government. They believe that the time for traditional
political reform over their freedom will be secured by resistance to the
Nation's laws and attacks against its institutions. They are not for
peaceful addressing of their grievances.

        The Patriot press is filled with wild tales of government conspiracies.
Some of the most widespread myths assert that the government is using black
helicopters to spy on its citizens, mustering Hong Kong police officers to
disarm Americans and implanting electronic monitoring devices in newborn

        Strange, you say. I think it is important for this Congress to unveil, to
disclose all that is being done on behalf of those who would conspire
against the U.S. Government. No, I am not here to cry fire in a crowded
theater, simply asking that we not hide away from the truth.

        A complex and bizarre theology also helps the Patriots explain their
belief and justify their tactics, Patriots as a synonymous name for
militia. Many subscribe to the Identity religion which holds that white
people are God's chosen and that it is their divine duty to battle the
satanic beast of government. Though they have no unified leader, these
Patriots are connected like no rebel force has ever been. On the Internet
and by fax machine, they share their gripes against government and trade
tips on how to avoid tax laws and fight government regulation. Through mail
ordered manuals they learn how to build bombs and conduct surveillance and
disable public utilities. On the weekend in isolated fields they practice
the art of guerrilla warfare. At public meetings their rage is rationalized
by the propaganda of the movement.

        I would simply say that I ask my colleagues to join me in supporting House
Concurrent Resolution 206. Let us unveil for the American people those who
would conspire to overthrow this Government and seriously address this
issue as Americans believing in peace and believing in democracy.

The SPEAKER pro tempore (Mr. Weldon of Florida). Under a previous order of
the House, the gentleman from Florida [Mr. Goss] is recognized for 5 minutes.

Extensions of Remarks.]


SPONSOR: Rep Jackson-Lee, (introduced 08/01/96)
A concurrent resolution expressing the sense of Congress with respect to
the threat to the security of American citizens and the United States
Government posed by armed militia and other paramilitary groups and
And one American's response...
To: MS. Jackson-Lee Congresswoman of Texas
From: Ray Southwell, Co-Founder of the Michigan Militia Corps
Subject: House Concurrent Resolution 206, Sense of Congress Resolution
regarding the Armed Militia.

        Recently I was given a copy of your speech before Congress dated August
2,1996. I was shocked at the misinformation that you gave your colleagues.
Congress continues to deny an open forum for discussion on the many reasons
for the Militia movement. You madam, like the press, continue to
manufacture public consent for the destruction of freedoms and liberties in
this nation. History will show how Congress led this country into civil war
because they would not listen.

        The Militia continues to grow. Last weekend I spoke to a black Militia
leader in Detroit who told me of new members who just joined his unit. He
told me of one white man who told a black man how honored he was for being
sworn in at the same time in the same unit. Madam, you continue to support
the injustice by passing out misinformation.

        You said, "The United States Government is comprised of democratic
institutions and any change to the Government should occur by peaceful
means." This is a Constitutional Republic--a limited democracy. A democracy
is nothing more than mob rule. Blacks as a minority have felt the sting of
democracy in the past. In a democracy the public's mind can be molded
through manufactured consent (see the book, Manufacturing Consent by Edward
S. Herman and Noam Chomsky). I also remind you of The Declaration of
Independence, that great document, that established this nation. It says "We
hold these truths to be self -evident that all man are created equal, that
they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure
these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever ANY FORM of
Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the RIGHT of the People
to alter or to abolish it... it is their RIGHT, it is their DUTY, to throw
off such Government!"

You also mentioned Oklahoma City, Pan Am 103, and TWA 800, insinuating the
Militia was involved in those atrocities. There is no connection, only what
has been manufactured by the press and those corrupt individuals in
government. State Representative Charles Keys, from Oklahoma, is concerned
about a government cover up of the bombing of the Murrah Federal building in
his state. He has asked for an independent investigation, at the state
level, but the idea was rejected. Once again corruption and injustice
prevail with a Government cover up. I am reminded of the Government
injustice and corruption of past atrocities, John Kennedy's assassination,
Iran Contra, CIA complicity in the drug trade and the Savings and Loan
scandal, to mention a few in a long train of abuses on the American People.

You said "many (Militia) subscribe to the Identity Religion." I must again
correct you, few belong to the Christian Identity Religion. It appears that
your information is coming from that libelous organization The Southern
Poverty Law Center (Morris Dees). You need to check your sources; some
organizations will say anything to increase their wealth.

You speak about "peaceful addressing of their grievances". The redress of
grievances continues but to no avail. From Daniel Sheehan, of the Christic
Institute, in his attempt to expose the truth about Iran Contra to the
Freemen's attempt to expose the corrupt banking system, the Government
continues to ignore the redress.

SHAME ON YOU for not examining the whole picture. SHAME ON YOU for not
stopping the corruption. SHAME ON YOU for compromising with the corrupt.
SHAME ON YOU for not standing up in Congress demanding to know the whole
truth. I can no longer set back and wait for you. When you are ready to send
your Jack Booted Thugs to destroy the Militia, have them come for me first.
You see, the corruption and injustice must stop or I must be destroyed. I am
an longer concerned about what will happen to me, only what happens to this
republic. I can be reached at
