Baldwin says we have more to fear from Washington DC than we do from Tehran or from Afghanistan, pointing to a program that seeks to recruit pastors as martial law pacifiers for FEMA in the event of a national emergency. Baldwin relates how a pastor from Ohio who attended a FEMA training seminar confirmed to him that there is a program to enlist pastors and clergymen to be part of clergy response teams, the primary goal of which would be to use the clergymen to encourage their constituents to submit to following government orders upon declaration of martial law, including the confiscation of firearms.
Baldwin cites the States’ Rights movement as the primary method through which freedom-loving American citizens in the 21st century will regain the liberties that have been usurped by the federal government in Washington DC. Part of this process was started by the genuine grass roots Tea Party groups which began in January 2007 as part of Ron Paul’s bid for the presidency, organizations like Oath Keepers. Baldwin warns that neo-cons have surreptitiously infiltrated and are trying to take over the modern Tea Party internally and re-focus the energy and the philosophy of the movement.
The only way the Tea Party can succeed is if they avoid two party partisanship and stick to the issues, states Baldwin, adding that there are two factions within the Tea Party, the Sarah Palin/Newt Gingrich-neo-con faction that has hijacked the movement, and the founding Ron Paul constitutionalist faction. Baldwin says that we will know by 2012 which way the Tea Party will move and whether or not it will have any lasting impact.
The cancer that is destroying America can be traced back to the Federal Reserve, states Baldwin, identifying the End the Fed movement as another crucial step towards reclaiming liberty. “It’s not enough to audit the Fed, we have to eliminate the Fed,” states Baldwin, adding that bringing America back to sound money principles is the only way to secure a prosperous future. This process must be undertaken at the state level, stresses Baldwin, adding that Ron Paul’s 2008 election campaign was responsible for bringing the Federal Reserve issue to nationwide prominence and prompting the national debate that continues to this day. The fact that Ron Paul was largely correct about the course of the economy since early 2008 has only given his message more credibility.
