Fresh from his guilty plea to criminal contempt, perennial candidate Rex Rammell says "The federal government will fail. It is inevitable."
Rammell also reviews his July poaching conviction, which he is appealing.
Rammell, who spoke of the "White Horse Prophecy" during his 2010 gubernatorial race, wrote, "It has been prophesied that there will be 'blood in the streets.' Fathers will turn against their sons and sons will turn against their fathers. Mothers will turn against their daughters and daughters will turn against their mothers. People will be starving. Crime will become rampant. America will be on the verge of crumbling to pieces."
His opinion piece may again draw on the prophecy, attributed by some to Joseph Smith, that the Constitution of the United States would "hang by a thread" and be saved by elders in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, of which Rammell is a member.
Rammell finished second in the 2010 race, and also has lost campaigns for the legislature and U.S. Senate.
He submitted his opinion piece to the Idaho Statesman and other papers, with his customary, "Thank you for running this article."
You're welcome, Rex. Here it is, in it's unedited entirety:
Blood in The Streets
The federal government will fail. It is inevitable. There are too many people that expect the government to take care of them, that vote. If you are receiving some kind of government check, you should be very nervous about the day when that check no longer shows up in the mail. What will you do?
It has been prophesied that there will be "blood in the streets." Fathers will turn against their sons and sons will turn against their fathers. Mothers will turn against their daughters and daughters will turn against their mothers. People will be starving. Crime will become rampant. America will be on the verge of crumbling to pieces. Then a power will arise in the west holding up the Constitution as it was originally intended and the people of America will look to them for help. Then the reconstruction of America will commence, sadly however, after tremendous devastation.
Do you think scenario is not possible? Has you optimism blinded you to reality? I believe the prophesy will be fulfilled and in the very near future. If you also believe, you must join people like me who are doing everything in our power to prepare for that day. We must stand up against all efforts to destroy the sacred principles of the Constitution! That is why I fight so vehemently against the corruption in our government. Maybe you think only the federal government is corrupt. If you do, you have overlooked the corruption right here in Idaho. Heaven forbid you are charged with a crime as I recently was. However if you are, don’t be surprised when they try to intimidate you into pleading guilty to a reduced sentence, even though you are innocent. And if you refuse and stand up and fight, don’t be surprised to find out that we no longer have a fair jury system. The judge tells the jury what they can and cannot do and how they must vote.
In my recent trial, I was not allowed to bring forth my theory of defense, which is, according to Idaho law, that a mistake of fact disproves criminal intent and criminal intent or criminal negligence is a required element of every crime. I was not allowed to bring forth any witnesses or exhibits, including my own testimony.
Not only was I not allowed to put on my defense, the Fish and Game officer falsely accused me of threatening to kill him in an attempt to disparage my reputation. When cross examined he obviously was not telling the truth, but what was most shocking was his “above the law” demeanor. I knew what he had done and so did he. Unbelievably, he could have cared less and had no fear of anything being done about it.
Judges preventing defenses from being made, judges telling juries how to vote, officers falsifying their reports and committing perjury under oath, and what do most people do? Ridicule and mock those who stand up and fight, while turning away.
Most Americans are going to get exactly what they deserve and it won’t be long.
