Some thoughts on the Bundy Ranch matter:
It has been slightly over one year since the confrontation at the Bundy Ranch in northern Clark County, Nevada. I wanted to take this space to reiterate certain constitutional points that I made in reference to that matter at that time. While I cannot speculate as to all the motivations for the actions of Cliven Bundy at that time, we can make certain constitutional observations.
The federal government owning and administering raw land within a State is a direct violation of the Constitution Article 1 Section 8 Part 17 (known as the “Enclave Clause”) which states in part that the only reason for the federal government to own land within a State is “for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-yards, and other needful Buildings.” The fact that some States agreed as a condition of Statehood to cede certain of their lands to the federal government does not alter the fact that that action at that time was and remains unconstitutional. The Enclave Clause was written and approved by the Founding Fathers to attempt to ensure that States are not dominated by the Federal Government.
Ultimately, this is Mr. Bundy’s complaint.  He does not recognize the authority of the federal government to administer lands in Nevada that do not have the required buildings upon them and he therefore wishes to not make grazing payments to the federal government but rather to some other properly constituted authority. He also sees the growing power of the federal government as a threat to liberty and as an attempt to enslave the citizenry.
The writers of the Constitution gave vast powers to the federal government in foreign affairs but very limited powers to the federal government in domestic affairs. This was done for a reason, to protect the citizens from dictatorship. All Americans should read carefully Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution (the “Enumerated Powers”) and its corollary Amendment X. Any careful reading of those sections will also show that the federal government has no authority to protect endangered species and actually has no authority to do about 80% of the things they presently engage in.
The continuous and growing unconstitutional intrusions by the federal government into the lives of private citizens is one major reason for the anger on display at the Bundy Ranch and for the anger felt by many citizens toward their own government. Until the federal government starts following the Constitution this anger will only increase and the civil divisions will continue to intensify.

There has been a lot of speculation about the Jade Helm operation scheduled for this summer due primarily to the size, scope and length of time this operation will require. We have received here numerous emails and links regarding this subject. While we do not believe it is a prelude to Martial Law we are still wary knowing the depths to which this current administration will go to continue to change the United States into a socialist country.
For those of you in the affected areas keep your eyes and ears open and let us know what is transpiring. The U.S. Freedom Army is not large enough or strong enough to interfere in any way even if we wished to do so but we need to stay informed as to the details of what is being undertaken by the Navy Seals, Special Forces, et al.
We do not believe at this time that Jade Helm is a practice session for Martial Law.
We are at present developing additional T-Shirt designs, a hat with the U.S. Freedom Army Patch on it, and a Bumper Sticker. We will inform you when these items become available for sale.
We now have a U.S. Freedom Army T-Shirt available for sale. The link is:
The uniform patch shown in this report is now available on ebay. You may search on ebay for “Freedom Army Patch” and scroll down until you find it but you may have to scroll for a while. The link below takes you directly to the patch. The cost at present is $9.50 per patch and that includes shipping and handling – that price is fairly standard in the industry for orders of quantity 10. The patch is 3.5” on the base and 2.5” high. On ebay you may negotiate a price so those of you with quantity orders may wish to take that approach. This is the procedure we plan to use on all other items (flags, hats, T-shirts, etc.) that we sell for the U.S. Freedom Army. The information on ordering for all items will always be under the “Uniforms” tab on www.usfreedomarmy.com. The United States Freedom Army makes no money on these sales.
This link will take you directly to the ebay location for the U.S. Freedom Army Patch:
Twitter users: If you would like a jpg file of the U.S. Freedom Army Patch to use as your profile photo please advise us and we will be glad to send you one. We would like to get as many people as wish to do so to start using our Freedom Army Patch as their profile photo on their Twitter account.
NOTICE: We do not at present use “Linked In”, “Meetup”, “Google+” or any other similar vehicle. Even if you ask us to join something we cannot participate at this time. Twitter and Facebook are the only two social media vehicles that we use at the present time. We appreciate everyone who asks us to join any social media vehicle and hope everyone understands why we cannot always do so.
We will soon be investigating “Linked In” as a vehicle for our use. If any enlistee has any thoughts on this matter please let us know your thoughts and if it will help in our recruiting.
TWITTER USERS: Thank you so much to everyone who is helping us on Twitter. Your participation really helps us to grow. Keep up the good work. If you need places to find USFA tweets you may use @usfreedomarmyx (primary), @presidentdiary, or @usfreedomarmy. The complete set of Twitter retweet instructions are at the end of this report. Please help us as much as you are able.
If any of you know of anyone on Twitter with more than 20,000 followers who would like to work with us on recruiting or loan us his account please advise us ASAP. We need to find some more large Twitter accounts to expand our base. If anyone with a large number of followers would let us use their account if it is inactive or available for some reason that is even better. If you know of anyone with more than 75,000 followers who would consider working with us please advise us how to contact them. We would consider renting accounts of that size under certain conditions.
Tweeting is the most important thing you can do to help this Army at this time.
We cannot respond to queries regarding our Army on Twitter. If someone wants to pose a question to the U.S. FREEDOM ARMY ask them to go to the website and use the “Contact Us” button. We simply do not have the time to respond to replies on Twitter and engage in discussions with people (especially liberals) about any matter on our Tweets. If you wish to do so that is your choice. When people make wild statements about our Army and it is obvious they have not read the website refer them to our website. If they have questions refer them to the CONTACT button on our website.
Enlistees: We need you to start retweeting now! Help us build this army. 
If anyone wishes to help us on Twitter read the Twitter instructions below.
FACEBOOK: We now have over 1,000 followers on the United States Freedom Army Facebook page. This is now a good recruiting tool for us and hopefully will take some of the pressure off our Twitter efforts. You can get on our Facebook page and “Like” us at www.facebook.com/usfreedomarmy. Invite all your friends to “Like” us and join the U.S. Freedom Army.
Every time we send out this request to “Like” our Facebook page really picks up and we want to thank everyone who has joined us on Facebook. If you have had any problems with our Facebook page please advise us of your concerns and we will look into the matter.
We value each one of you individually. Our standard answer is that all enlistees do what they are able to do. If you are unable to help us at all that is just fine – we still value your membership. We know that some of you for various reasons cannot participate. We still value your membership and we hope that we can speak for you.
We are building an army of concerned citizens. You are the people who are sick and tired of the way this great nation is being managed and who are sick and tired of the continuous unconstitutional intrusions by government into your personal lives. All of you are a part of this army. We are honored that you reported for duty.
If you received this email and did not receive our April Month-end report there is something wrong with your email account. Check your spam filters and be sure that presidentialdiary@gmail.com is allowed to send you information. Also check under promotions (or its equivalent) – the system is sending you these reports monthly and your email system is putting them somewhere. We want to ensure that everyone receives his reports.
We know that some of the items we send you are repetitive. You must understand that some people have not seen these items before and that is why we must continue to send this information to everyone each month. Try to read your reports every month because even though some items are repetitive other items change from month to month.
Below are the instructions for helping us recruit on Twitter. If you have less than 100 followers no retweeting is required on your part. Remember, this is optional. We will not think any less of anyone that does not wish to participate. We value all enlistees and appreciate your patriotism.
If you wish to help us recruit on Twitter here is what we need you to do:
<100 action="" followers="" font="" no="">
100-500 followers – 2-6 retweets per day
500-5,000 followers 6-10 retweets per day
5,000 – 15,000 followers 10-20 retweets per day
>15,000 followers 20+ retweets per day
In your search box at the top enter @usfreedomarmyx (the U.S. Freedom Army Auxiliary) and then click on the title when it appears below. You should get a list of the @usfreedomarmyx TWEETS (Usually but not always). If you do not get a list of the TWEETS click on the profile – you will get the last two tweets – go to the bottom of the profile and it will say “Got to full profile” – click on “Go to full profile” and you will get the Tweets. Select any tweets you like and retweet them. Retweet ONLY those tweets that have the name of the website usfreedomarmy.com (or USFREEDOMARMY.COM) contained within the tweet.
Once you become proficient at this it can be done in just a few minutes. Whenever you go on Twitter you can do this first if you wish and it will be over almost immediately.
In the setup we have described you may reuse a tweet after you have retweeted it once. If you want to reuse a tweet you like do as follows: A tweet you have retweeted will show as green in the retweet box. Click on retweet and it will turn from green to blue – click on retweet again and the retweet box will appear – then retweet.
Note: We retweet the same tweet over and over if we like it - do not be afraid to use the same tweet many times. On occasion Twitter will not allow you to retweet something - just ignore that tweet if this occurs - it is the nature of Twitter - we don't understand why either. 
Please note: If you wish to communicate on Twitter with other enlistees you may use #usfreedomarmy. Those of you who are not using a web site name on your Twitter profile are welcome to use usfreedomarmy.com if you wish to do so. Anyone, whether enlisted with us or not, may use our U.S. Freedom Army Patch as their profile photo.
