Jack Stuart discusses mil before a Commonwealth study panel in San Francisco Jack Stuart, who serves as Pub- lic Information Officer for the Combined Militias of California, was one of the guest speakers be- fore the Commonwealth Club's National Security Section, in San Francisco Dec. 4 when a panel discussion on the militia move- ment was held. Stuart, a WWII Navy veteran, gave his initial remarks followed by a 30 minute question and an- swer session. Other speakers were Joseph Russoniello, former U.S. Attorney, San Francisco, and J. Henry Glazer, former command- ing officer, U.S. Naval Militia. The panel sought to answer questions regarding today's mili- tia movement that man>, experts have lambasted or dismissed. Much of the media's typical dis- cussions of militias have tended toward the negative, even sensa- tional. Documents and writings of the Founders have been left unexamined, if even mentioned. Yet, America was founded on the patriotism and courage of mi- litias. The evolution of the Constitu- tion, from the Magua Carta, to the Declaration of Independence, to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and what this means to today's citizens were discussed. Among the questions posed were: "Is today's militia member a patriot, or a lunatic? "and "What are the issues of public safety, and the potential hazards of private armies?" In his remarks Stuart explained that the Militias of California are composed of men and women of all races, nationalities, and reli- gions. They have a legal network that advises members and keeps them legal. They support and co- operate with honest local law en- forcement. However, they vigor- ously oppose dishonest, corrupt, and unconstitutional law enforce- ment and abuse of police power, where they find it. He pointed out that during last winters floods some of the units were called upon by sheriffs to patrol evacuated areas to keep out to looters. He added that his audi- ence probably did not hear about this work because, true to form, the media rarely publishes any- thing good about any militia. He went on to explain what motivates a reasonable, rational person to join a militia. "Typically he or she is a person who feels we are losing our constitutional Re- public. National socialism, a form of Fascism, is steadily, relentlessly and inexorably taking over our country in violation of our Consti- tution. The take over is accelerat- ing, and our elected representa- tives can't or won't stop it. We are losing our rights and freedoms -step by step. We see laws and regulations multiplying exponen- tially. In addition to the states, federal agencies alone publish 200 pages of new regulations in the federal register every business day. He said the primary purpose of the Militias of California is to sup- port and defend the Constitutions of the United States and the State of California by providing a cred- ible threat to unconstitutional abuse of government power. Stuart explained that as sworn members of a legal militia, they claim the right under the Second Amendment to keep and bear mil- itary style arms and equipment and to train in the proper use there- of to be prepared to act in concert for the common defense. And as a military organization, authorized under the U.S. of A. Constitution, they consider themselves to be exempt from assault weapons bans, and declare they will not be disarmed. In closing he pointed out government knows that the tias are armed, trained, plined, and ready. "We are a inite threat to the abuse of power, to criminal activity, corruption. We are not a national security. Quite trary, we present a adjunct to State and troops. We the home iff or the governor to call us person who has seen his tors bought and bril interest. He sees them their cronies, voting power and perks, and themselves with power of bency. He sees the national ministration using federal cies to punish political and nothing is done about it. sees his government as worse that of King George III in who, according of Independence, 'erected a tude of new offices, er swarms people, and eat out their stance'." '"In the face of all this, a American becomes 'mad as and he is not going to take it, more! SO he joins a militia to tect his constitutional his family. The woman is a patriotic person, is sincerely convinced he is ing for a noble cause, for the vival of his free country the preservation of its Constitution", he concluded.
