The C.R.E.S.T is dedicated to the freedom and patriotism on which our nation was founded. We steadfastly
defend the Constitution of the United States and its inseparable the Bill of Rights.
By protecting these laws
the chains of oppression have been forever broken.
To defend the Constitution of the United States we will never use force until every peaceful option
to redress our grievances are completely exhausted.
We will never make a call to arms except for the purpose of
self-defense against a mortal enemy either foreign or domestic.
We will always consider those who wish to disarm
the America People our mortal enemies. Nobody concerned about our life, liberty or happiness would ever want to disarm us
and such agendas explicitly violate the highest law of the land.
Should any government power within the United States decree citizen disarmament
, this will be considered an act of war upon the American people.
We maintain an emergency organization system
that can transform our alliance into a citizen defense militia capable of responding to this and other threats facing our
Although the C.R.E.S.T. is steadfastly against initiating the use of force against others, it will not
restrict it's members from using whatever force
is needed to defend themselves and each other against violence or violations of their rights by those who would enforce unconstitutional
laws. However, members that carelessly get themselves in trouble with government authorities must understand our response
must be measured to insure the continuation of the C.R.E.S.T.
We will never resort to the use of firearms or explosives
in defending our members. These options we maintain solely for the defense of our nation. However, we maintain and will use
every nonviolent option to defend or rescue our members from government wrongdoing. "All
for one and one for all."
Our motto: "United we stand, divided we fall".
Court cases and quotes we reflect on:
claim and exercise of a constitutional right cannot be converted into a crime." Miller v. U.S. 230 F 486 at 489
"Where rights as secured
by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which will abrogate them." Miranda v. Ariz.,
384 U.S. 436 at 491 (1966).
"The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in
reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of it's
enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it.
No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional
law, and no courts are bound to enforce it." - Sixteenth American Jurisprudence, Second Edition, Section 256 137, 180
"Since an unconstitutional
law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power
or authority on anyone, affords no protection and justifies no acts performed under it. No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional
law and no courts are bound to enforce it." 16 Am Jur 2nd Section 177
"All laws, rules and practices which are repugnant to the Constitution
are null and void." Marbury v. Madison
"The United States is entirely a creature of the Constitution. Its power and authority have
no other source. It can only act in accordance with all the limitations imposed by the Constitution." Reid v Covert 354
US l (1957)
a legislature undertakes to proscribe the exercise of a citizen's constitutional rights it acts lawlessly and the citizen
can take matters into his own hands and proceed on the basis that such a law is no law at all." - Justice William O.
"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens
who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and
sacrifice for that freedom." John F. Kennedy
