Wow. This is a very powerful video. Thanks Stewart

My hat is off to Mr. Ayala and all Oath Keepers involved. Something this emotional is truly capable of turning the tide.

Well done, sirs.

That video was very well done! Good job!

These videos are as emotionally stirring for me as any I have seen. If they do not stir within each of us the resolve to uphold our oath to support and defend the Constitution, I don't know what it will take!

Yes, it is an emotional video but of course emotion will not rule the day. Being well up in years, no army would accept me, but for some time now I have been looking for a patriotic force with whom to cast my lot. Maybe now I have found it. I cannot be in Lexington but I am ready and willing to resist all enemies with everything I have (My ammo is ready.)for love of my country and to spend the last drop of my blood if need be.

Beautiful, powerful video.

My father received the Purple Heart fighting on Pelelieu in Sept 1944. If he were alive today, he would be honored to see this movement occurring, in his name and in the name of all men and women from the Revolution to right now who have fought and suffered to save our Constitution. I have posted his WWII Marine Corps album with pictures and documents. It can be viewed at liveyourlight at wordpress dot com Peleliu 1944 Battle For Bloody Nose Ridge in Pictures.

Thank you all for your honor, your service, and your compassion for We The People.

Thank you. If your father were alive today, we would be honored to have him with us. May we post your father's story here as well, with a link to your page?

PH in NC said... is this about some members of the military/law enforcement having second thoughts about how recent disasters were handled?

And if you're a member of the military/law enforcement and you truly disagree with many of the orders you're receiving, doesn't it make more sense to stop being part of an organization you disagree with (and, hence, stop being paid by "public" money)? You could go off and earn a living doing something you feel is more worthwhile to your cause, no? Isn't it hard to be against the government when you're working for the government? Are you thinking that by staying in "public service" that you're collecting intelligence or something?

I'm just curious how you reconcile within yourself being pissed off with government while you're a part of it...

Greetings everyone.

Just a quick question: the flag serving as a back drop looks as if it is inverted... especially towards the end of the video. What does the upside-down stripes & stars mean?

I would be proud to have my father's story posted on your site. Please feel free to post the link. Thank you so much!

"What does the upside-down stripes & stars mean?"

It's an official signal of distress.

I'm sorry, although you say you won't turn your backs on the American public and enforce illegal laws or orders. I simply do not believe you. New Orleans was a prime example of what we can expect. Your organization does not encompass the US Military nor the police officers around this country. We have a president that refuses to prove his eligibility for office. Our Constitution is being shredded, and the Treasury is being looted. But you guys remain silent. I'm sorry, but I can't trust mere words any more.

Hope OK doesn't mind my addressing a few points here, but Anonymous (1:12pm) I think many of the police, National Guard, etc., learned some valuable lessons during Katrina and were shocked by what they saw. I don't believe that will happen again, not all of them anyway.

PH in NC, read the pledge they take to be a part of that government: "defend against foreign or DOMESTIC". Refusing to obey certain orders that violate that, would be what they are being paid to do.

Our forces are sworn to an even higher level of service than our politicians. And adhere to it better.

I salute this group and will be watching. As soon as I can money will be donated (sending to FairTax at the moment). But I have posted a link on my blog so I hope to drive more this way.

Thanks for your service. You honor your uniform.

[snip - snip ]
It was the shredding, for Many Years now, of the Constitution, the out and out looting of Our Treasury and then the horror of the acts after Katrina that started the reaction that you see here today. Public opinion moves slowly mostly but it does move.
We Oath Keepers are devoting our lives, our fortunes and our Sacred Honor to seeing that that same sort of horror does not happen again. Hence our motto "Not On Our Watch".

Keep in mind that this organization is just now four weeks old. We have not had the opportunity to contact all of the active duty military or the Reserves or the Peace Officers so of course we do not YET encompass any of the above. Give us some time and help push the cart in the right direction instead of dragging your feet in the opposite direction.

We need Everyone, Oath Keepers and all Americans, to visit with, write to, email or call every elected official that is involved in the business of politics that affects Your life in any way and let them know that "business as usual" is Not Acceptable and it is over. We the People of this country want our Constitutional Republic back. We want our representatives to represent US not themselves or any special interest group.

We the Oath Keepers are Reaching out to the Military and the Peace Officers to enjoin them to Keep their Oath to defend the Constitution and You the Public need to get back control of your elected officials. They work for You Not the other way around. If they won't restore the Constitution as it is written then vote them out. Let them get a real job.
We Each have a job to do here so let's get busy. Oath Keepers is at least trying. What are you doing to correct the problems you raised ?
Help Us.
Help spread the word and get started talking to Your politicians. You hired them You can fire them as well.
Help don't hinder.

God Bless You All and thank you for understanding what the oath we took really means...i took the oath in 1961 and i still believe in the oath i took..Again, thank you all very much.

Earl said...

It's just an awesome video. Some of you out there have doubts if Oath Keepers can do anything in time of trouble. It only takes a few to stand up and say no, Not on My Watch. When others see that we mean it and won't bow down they will join in. Every body is tired of being told what to do instead of asked what to do.

This is to let everyone know about the excellent work of Sheriff Richard Mack. To quote from the website SHERIFFMACK dot COM:

"Hi, I'm Richard Mack, former sheriff of Graham County, Arizona, and long-time crusader for freedom and individual rights. Right now, it is vital that we restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. The greatest threat we face today is not terrorists; it is our own federal government. If America is conquered or ruined it will be from within, not a foreign enemy.

"In 1994 I filed a lawsuit challenging the Brady bill to stop the federal government from forcing another unfunded mandate down our throats. I won a decision at the US Supreme Court on the issue of States' rights. This suit catapulted me to national attention, with television appearances on the Donahue Show, Good Morning America, Crossfire, Nightline, CNBC, and SHOWTIME'S the AMERICAN CANDIDATE. I've been on over 500 radio talk shows nationwide, ranging from G. Gordon Liddy and Charles Goyette to Derry Brownfield and Pat Buchannan. I have traveled the country extensively and I've seen first hand the horrible side effects from politicians who have replaced our Constitution with their own political agendas and party platforms.

"I lecture and give seminars on constitutional issues relating to gun control, law enforcement, States' rights, the farce, otherwise known as the drug war, and the oath of office. I have also been a consultant for lawyers, and people in general helping them with cases of unlawful arrests and police misconduct. I have stood for 'the little guy' against 'big brother' government.

"On this site you'll find many articles and extracts from books I've written on many subjects related to maintaining our freedom as a people. I am deeply committed to the belief that government should exist to protect the freedoms of the individuals whom it serves. We must return to those principles that our country was founded upon!

"The founders of our nation were afraid of one thing more than any other... government having too much power! Remember, they escaped from the tyranny of an oppressive and controlling government when they established this nation. They fought and died for it, and now we are letting these same freedoms they fought for slip away little by little, without a second thought.

"Please join me in the fight to regain our rights, while the price to pay is less than death. I am committed to doing all we can peacefully to get our country back.

"In order to succeed, we must first make ourselves aware of the problem. We must educate ourselves, and then we can know what action to take. One of the best and easiest solutions is to depend on local officials, especially the sheriff, to stand against federal intervention and federal criminality.

"And this is the purpose of my work: I write and speak so that others will become educated and free."

Every county sheriff (AND citizen) in America should read Sheriff Mack's book, THE COUNTY SHERIFF: AMERICA'S LAST HOPE. Each county sheriff should read the book not only for his own benefit, but for the benefit of the American citizens who elected him to serve them and their county.

To learn more about this unique and powerfully-written book, visit:

If Americans can encourage their state representatives to join the state sovereignty movement initiated by Arizona and more than a dozen other states, then that effort will be magnified if COUNTY sovereignty can be ensured through a county sheriff who is willing, knowledgeable, and able to defend the sovereignty of the citizens in his county. Then we will have TWO reinforcing barriers against increasing federal intervention in our lives.

I urge you to encourage your own county sheriff to read a copy of this new book by Sheriff Richard Mack.

Thank you!

"If ye love wealth better than liberty,
the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,
go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or your arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you,
and may prosperity forget that ye were our countrymen."
