“Republic of Texas” Meeting Raided, Phones and Personal Property Seized, Everyone Fingerprinted and Photographed — NO ARRESTS

“We had no idea what was going on. We knew of nothing that would warrant such an action.”

(Information Liberation) BRYAN, TX — Federal and local police forces raided a political meeting, taking unusual measures to document every attendee by taking fingerprints andphotographs, and seizing every cell phone and all recording equipment in the meeting hall.
The raid took place on February 14, 2015, at VFW Post 4892 in Bryan, Texas. At 10:10 a.m., an “army of policing agencies with flashing emergency lights” showed up, shut down the meeting of “congenial and unimposing” Texans and forced them to hand over their private effects and biometric data.
Minutes into the meeting a man among the onlookers stood and moved to open the hall door, letting in an armed and armored force of the Bryan Police Department, the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office, the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office, Agents of the Texas District Attorney, the Texas Rangers and the FBI.
In the end, at least 20 officers corralled, searched and fingerprinted all 60 meeting attendees, before seizing all cellphones and recording equipment in a Valentine’s Day 2015 raid on the Texas separatist group.
The meeting was the monthly gathering of a group known as the Republic of Texas. Drawing participants from hundreds of miles away, the group shares a common vision of an independent Texan nation.
This group differentiates itself from others because it believes that the 19th centuryRepublic of Texas was never legally dissolved, and the subsequent integration of Texan land into the USA was illegitimate. This is explained on the group’s Proclamationstatement:
Bob Wilson holds an elected position and described the group to RT: “In the early 2000s, a number of people got together and said, ‘You know what? If the land is still ours, and if there is a perpetual treaty that says we are a nation, lets just be a nation.’ And so they elected, but with a vote from the people, a President, Vice President, a Secretary of State, a Congress, Supreme Court justices — and all of those are still occupied and manned to this day. In fact, that government meets every month on the second Saturday of the month, and the people of Texas who are interested come to those meetings.”
Wilson currently sits as an elected Senator of the Republic of Texas.
“The purpose, the goal of the Republic of Texas,” Wilson explained, “is to restore and to preserve all the freedoms and all the sovereign rights that were won in 1836 at the Battle of San Jacinto, when that treaty was signed. In other words, we’re here to make sure that people get to exercise those rights, even though an overreaching federal government of the U.S. keeps trying to take away more and more of the rights and freedoms. We’re here to restore them and make sure that they’re preserved.”

Investigators searched and fingerprinted about 60 people at the Feb. 14 morning meeting and then seized all their cell phones and recording equipment, along withgold, silver, and thousands of dollars in cash.
Group members maintain that Texas was illegally annexed in 1845 by the U.S., and they view elected officials as tyrannical “kings and emperors” and operate their own parallel government.
“This is the century for colonialist ambitions to be reversed,” said Robert Wilson, a pastor who serves as a senator in the Republic. “I’ve watched a lot of things happen, and the people of the world are fed up. The spirit of the world right now is: (to) make things smaller, move governments closer to home, take back self-rule.”

What have we learned from this ? Only that you may be in the right, but if your group has not got control of your immediate
area at least, or your surrounding area, you are just pissing
in the wind. Now, if this group had control of an area, and
enforced it with armed guards, this would not have happened.

Also, in this case, the local sheriff, the Texasrangers, and the FBI didn't arrest these guys, they only made them look foolish. But they could have arrested them, shot
some of them, or even wiped them all out. 
Let this be a lesson to us all.  The changing of a government
is not a game. Don't play like it is.

What ? You say that these guys (and gals) did nothing wrong ?
Well, two of them sent some home-made papers to a judge,
ordering him to do something or other. 
Maybe they were 
correct morally, but judges DO NOT LIKE insolance, especially from the lower classes  (that is you and me).
They like to think that they can order even presidents and
kings around, and they sometimes do.

Look at our (?!?) federal judges. The 'supreme' court, and even small-time federal judges re-write our laws and make up new ones EVERY DAY. They have no power to do so in the
Constitution, but ever since the 'supreme' court gave itself
the power to 'interpret'- and they mean define the Constitution,
it has been totally twisted, tortured, and mangled so as to be
unrecognizable to even the men who WROTE IT.

Perhaps a new and more American system is coming to us than the socialist one imposed on us now, in the near future. I hope so. But remember, hope is not a plan.
And until it does, don't be writing any checks with your mouth
(or keyboard) that your ass cannot cash.
