Welcome to The C.R.E.S.T. 
     Our mission is to unite American Patriots for the defense, restoration and preservation of the Constitution for the United States of America and it’s inseparable Bill of Rights; and to insure that the usurpers of our Constitution respect our natural, inalienable, inherent and God given rights, which are also guaranteed to us by the Constitution for the United States of America and the Bill of Rights.

 

Welcome to The C.R.E.S.T.
Our mission is to unite American Patriots for the defense, restoration and preservation of the Constitution for the United States of America and it’s inseparable Bill of Rights; and to insure that the usurpers of our Constitution respect our natural, inalienable, inherent and God given rights, which are also guaranteed to us by the Constitution for the United States of America and the Bill of Rights.

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 nation.

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:

"The 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)

"When 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. Douglas

"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

 FAQ:


Is the C.R.E.S.T. a vigilante group?

No. The C.R.E.S.T. never takes justice into it’s own hands. Our members do reserve the right to obstruct injustice when a fellow member is having his/her rights violated under the color of law.


Does the C.R.E.S.T. support domestic terrorism like what supposedly happened in Oklahoma City? 

 

Absolutely not, we are an anti-terrorist organization. We work within the existing political process to restore constitutional law and to promote a more secure America. If you believe terrorism is the way to restore constitutional government don’t expect safe harbor with us.

Is the C.R.E.S.T. planning a war against the government?

Definitely Not. Although our members keep and bear arms our stance is completely defensive. The question should be is why is government acting in ways that we feel we may need to defend ourselves?


Why does your organization warehouse military uniforms?

We believe in hoping for the best while preparing for the worst. Just like we don’t keep and bear arms merely for “hunting and sporting purposes” our organization doesn’t exist to appease those that aim to disarm the people. Make no mistake, we will fight if given no other choice, we believe self-defense is a natural and God given right that cannot be compromised.


Is the government against the C.R.E.S.T?

We are a peaceful and law abiding organization and a law abiding government has no reason to ever be against us or fear us.


Isn’t the C.R.E.S.T controversial?

We are no more controversial than the Bill of Rights today.


Is the C.R.E.S.T associated with the NRA?

No.  Many of our members may also be members of the NRA but as an organization we make no endorsement of the NRA nor does the NRA endorse the C.R.E.S.T.
