I hope you all have a very wonderful Independence day. Yes, celebrate as John Adams said we should in a letter to his wife, “I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”
I would add to what John Adams said and after you have commemorated this day as a Day of Deliverance with solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty, read the Declaration of Independence. Understand that what we should be celebrating is our deliverance from the tyranny of government, our understanding that our liberties come from God and not government, and that the authority of government must be limited, and the liberties of the people must be protected.
We celebrate Independence Day because it is recognized as the day that a brave and dedicated people declared that they would not accept tyrannical government, government that dictated how they must live their lives, choices they must make, and thoughts they could have. They declared that Americans were independent from the tyranny of government in 1776 and each year thereafter.
If you are a Democrat or a RINO, please take an extra minute and ask yourself if you agree with the Declaration of Independence, ask yourself if you would have put your name to that document. If you do agree and if you would have signed, ask yourself why you support those who disagree with the Declaration of Independence and wish for government to once again dictate how each American must live their life, how they must think, and the choices they must make.
Please, all Americans do as John Adams said we should do, and that is have a time of reflection and devotion before the fun.
Anybody who has paid attention to politics and elections over the last 50 years or so can only conclude that the Left or the Democrats have the edge in 2022, just as they always have the edge. We forget how elections are decided in a collectivist state and as the United States is transformed into a democracy or a collectivist state, the rules of democracy and collectivism become more and more pronounced.
The Conservatives have the issues in their favor, as they usually do. Biden and Harris are seen on television frequently. That favors the Conservatives. The economy favors the Conservatives with its never-before-seen actual inflation, the recession we are in, and the outrageous spending are all factors. The Conservatives are favored because of the high crime, and not just the high crime but the Left doing everything in their power to increase crime, to favor the rights of the criminal and take away the rights of the law-abiding citizen. The open border favors the Conservatives. The harm and damage that the wide-open border causes to all is reinforced constantly. Even the President of Mexico is now damning the Biden border policies. Biden’s surrender to China and to Iran are issues that favor the Conservatives as most Americans support America over China and Iran. The Dobbs ruling by the Supreme Court favors Conservatives as most Americans do not favor massive murder of the unborn, and Americans understand that Federalism is critical to our Republic and the insanity of centralized power is a direct threat to freedom.
Yes, I could go on and on and the polls would agree that the issues noted above place the Conservatives in a favorable position. The one issue the Left is touting is the January 6 hearing. However, most Americans are paying no attention to the charade. The recent testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson has solidified that this these hearings are not based in fact or reality just as the Impeachment hearings were not.
But what the Left has in its favor are Voting machines connected to the internet, drop boxes and mules, massive mail out ballots to fraudulent voter rolls, corrupt local election officials, the cities such as Philadelphia, Atlanta, Detroit, Milwaukee, Minneapolis and St. Paul, Las Vegas, and the States of California, New York, and Illinois.
When you can steal an election like happened in 2020, when you tell the public in your face, we will generate as many votes as are needed to defeat Trump and that number turned out to be 30,000,000, and when you know you can count on your useful idiots, the RINOS to support you, you have become as efficient as those like Stalin, Lukashenko, and Maduro. You have reached the pinnacle of election stealing. The Left will be even more coordinated, better prepared, more efficient, and more brazen in 2022 than they were in 2020. When “the ends always justify the means” is your stronghold, you must be favored in any election. After all, it has been proven by the left time after time that the vote counter is far more important than the voter.
The current Supreme Court is shocking the left by ruling that we must obey the Constitution. The left is angry that the Supreme Court understands that the United States is a Constitutional Republic and not a democracy. The left has been attempting to transform the United States into a democracy for the last 100 years or more.
Recently the Supreme Court has upheld Federalism and has upheld a critical limitation and right. In the Dobbs ruling, the court said the Constitution does not protect the murder of children. It stated, and correctly so, that the Supreme Court does not have the Constitutional authority to make law. Thus, the court ruled that the question of killing babies must be decided by each state. The court was absolutely correct from the legal and constitutional standpoint, but that a civilized society has such a divide on the question of murdering children, speaks volumes about the moral deprivation of the society.
The Supreme Court also ruled correctly on what has become known as the establishment clause found in the First Amendment. The Federal government is denied the power to establish a national religion, even secularism or atheism, and was also denied the power to regulate the practice of religion. The court said that we as Americans have the right to pray on a football field and if others wish to join us they also have the right to do so.
We are yet awaiting a court ruling to determine if congress is going to be required to do its constitutional duty. Congress is the only branch of government with the authority to legislate or to create law. Congress has in many cases abdicated that duty. When Nancy Pelosi stated that the law must be passed so they and we could learn what was in it, Pelosi was saying that congress only passed an idea, not a law, and that the regulatory agencies would make the law.
Before the court is a case to learn if that practice is or is not constitutional. This case involves the EPA which has in many cases proclaimed itself as lawmaker, as investigator, as prosecutor, as defender, as judge, and as jury in cases dealing with the EPA. States have sued the EPA stating that the EPA is not congress and cannot make law. The technicality of the case asks if the EPA has the authority to regulate power plant emissions. The EPA claims it does, and the state says that any ruling the EPA would make in this situation would be the same as making law.
If the Supreme Court rules in favor of the states, it will clarify that only congress can make law. Agencies of the executive branch do not have the authority to create law, or to expand upon or contract the laws congress passes. Nancy Pelosi would know what the law was because it would be written in the law that congress passed, and not be made by the agencies.
This is a critical ruling. Will the Supreme Court again rule that the Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land as written, or will the Supreme Court rule that we are now a democracy and the will of the majority or those in power has no limitations. It would seem that the Supreme Court Justices understand our Constitution and regard it as the Supreme Law of the Land.
The U.S. Supreme Court protected the religious rights of government employees by ruling in favor of a Christian former public high school football coach in Washington state who sued after being suspended from his job for refusing to stop leading prayers with players on the field after games.
The ruling, written by Justice Neil Gorsuch, rejected the local school district's concerns that in a public-school setting Kennedy's prayers and Christian-infused speeches could be seen as coercive to students or a governmental endorsement of a particular religion in violation of what is known as the establishment clause of the First Amendment.
The Supreme Court held that Kennedy's actions were protected by his own rights under the First Amendment, which protects free speech and religious expression.
"Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse republic - whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head," Gorsuch wrote.
The First Amendment states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
Again, if people would only read their history and understand why this amendment was so important we would not have these foolish rulings such as the lower court and the minority wanted. Pre-American Revolution there were established religions in the colonies. That means that specific colonies supported specific churches out of the taxes collected by the colonies from all. The First Amendment specifically prohibited the United States Government from doing the same.
Virginia, New York, Maryland, North Carolina, and South Carolina had the Anglican Church of England as their established religion. Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Connecticut had the Congregational Church while Delaware, Rhode Island, Georgia, and Pennsylvania had none. The First Amendment said the Federal Government would have to follow the example of the latter four.
The Supreme Court did not establish any religion in this ruling. The Supreme Court did not say anybody had to practice a specific religion, nor did that a specific religion must become government supported. The Supreme Court stated that the coach had the Constitutional right to practice the religion of his choice and his players had the right to do the same.
The Supreme Court ruled for individual freedom while the dissenters are mandating that the religion of secularism be the established religion of the land while mandating restrictions on the practice of another. Once again, the Supreme Court did exactly what it is mandated to do by the Constitution and that is to render opinions on the Constitutionality of actions; that is no establishment and freedom to worship freely.
Americans do not understand just how unique our county is, or should I say was. Our nation was founded as a Constitutional Republic. That means that the law or the Constitution is the monarch or the dictator. What the Constitution says is the law. However, our Constitution also allowed itself to change its mind. This is the amendment process. However, the amendment process is a slow and difficult process. The reason is so that any changes made are done so on a rational and deliberate basis and not an emotional basis.
Our republic was established in such a way as to minimize us becoming a tyranny. The entity that brings tyranny is always government. We were established with three independent (not co-equal) branches of government. The less centralized power is, the less likely it is that tyranny will prevail.
We were also established on the concept of natural law. Alexander Hamilton wrote, God gave us the rational faculties that allow us to understand law and to develop political systems that are consistent with it. What we really want out of our government are laws consistent with God’s laws and the laws of nature, with the end goal being that we can all enjoy our God-given rights (that life, liberty, and happiness mentioned elsewhere).
Our nation is, or was unique because we decentralized power, we were to be a nation of laws and not governed by emotions of people, and we were founded on the critical basis that our rights and liberties come from God and not men nor government.
There is a faction in America that says the above founding principles are wrong. The American Left is telling us that much in our country must change. They are telling us that our nation has to be transformed.
The American Left, which promotes collectivism, (collectivism is an ideology that is comprised of the beliefs of Marxism, communism, socialism, and progressivism). Collectivism demands subjugation of the individual to the demands of the collective as expressed by an oligarchy. We are now being led to believe that all power must be held by that oligarchy. The branches of government would still be maintained for appearance’s sake, but control would be held by the leaders of the collectivist party, or the oligarchy.
It would be the leaders of the party or the oligarchy that would determine what rights and liberties the people could have and/or which group of people could have those rights. These rights and liberties would be rewarded to those who comply with the demands of the oligarchy. Lenin said, “Liberty is so precious it must be rationed.”
As per all collectivist dictatorships of the past, the American Left is demanding that all agencies of government work for the greater good of the collectivist party. Any who support the demands of the oligarchy, regardless of their actions, are not subject to facing consequences for any harm they might have caused to the life or property of others. Those who oppose the demands of the oligarchy, will face consequences, not based on harm or damage caused to life and property of others, but based on what harm the oligarchy determines, real or imagined, was brought against their movement.
The transformation the American Left is demanding is the very tyranny our founders were determined to avoid. The American Left is demanding all conform to their collectivist ideas. The American Left is demanding that the Constitution of the United States becomes a relic of the past, that natural law is a destructive theory, and that all power be centralized under their ruling class.
These are ends desired by the American Left, and they have proven beyond any doubt that they will use any and all means to achieve that end.
Never before in the history of the Supreme Court has there been a leak of a decision before official release. There has and always will be speculation about this leak.
The Supreme Court staff is small and official information is well controlled. Yet, the preliminary ruling for Mississippi’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization was leaked to the press. This occurred in early May.
Supposedly the SCOTUS is going to correctly rule that killing of unborn children is a matter for each state to decide. The ruling is supposedly going to rule that the court was wrong originally in declaring that the killing of an unborn baby is a matter on which the court had authority to rule.
We also understand that Chief Justice Roberts disagrees with the opinion of 5 other judges and that even with his vote to support keeping Roe v Wade in its unconstitutional form and continue the endorsement of murdering the unborn, he would be in the minority. We have been informed that Roberts has lobbied other justices to change their votes.
When the leak occurred, we heard outrage from many, but little from Roberts. He did promise that the leak would be investigated, an investigation that knowledgeable people tell us should have been done in days and not weeks.
It is questionable as to whether or not an investigation has been taking place and if one has, it would certainly appear to be for show only with no real intent of identifying the leaker and punishing the leaker appropriately.
This brings me to my wild idea or real possibility. It just might be that Roberts was behind the leak. When Roberts became convinced he could not change the mind of one of the 5 justices necessary to keep murdering the unborn as was declared back in 1973, he might have concluded that public pressure was the means to accomplish his goal. Roberts also knew that he would be the driving force behind any investigation.
We have learned from the FBI that when you investigate yourself, the outcome is the outcome that does the least damage to your or no damage. Roberts, perhaps, concluded that if a large organization like the FBI could continually coverup their illegalities, he could do the same in a small, controlled group.
A logical action to take after the leak, would have been to release the final decision immediately. A cover-up decision, especially if you wanted to still try to change the opinion, would be to delay the release.
The number one destructive fabrication in our nation today is the belief that government solves problems. Government creates problems, always has and always will. Government creates problems because government is comprised of people.
“In every government on earth is some trace of human weakness, some germ of corruption and degeneracy, which cunning will discover, and wickedness insensibly discover, cultivate, and improve.” Thomas Jefferson
The founders formed us as a republic because in a republic the law is the supreme ruler and not men. The law however can only rule so long as we adhere to that law. People in government, as we are seeing today, are using their cunning to circumvent the law and enforce the will of the majority, which is a euphemism for those in power.
We are being told the rules of nature and biology can evolve and be changed to promote perversions of all kinds. We are being told that those born male can choose to become women and when they do so they somehow become biological women or women can become biological men. No, we cannot control our biological functions. Those born male do not menstruate. Those born male cannot become pregnant. Those born female cannot impregnate. To think and teach differently is a sign of nothing less than insanity.
That all must adhere to the insanity that biology is fluid is controlling and damaging. Because somebody tells me I must accept insanity as normal and call refer to as a man as she, should not be attempted to be controlled by government. Any government that would attempt to do so is exceeding its role and is damaging society.
We are being told the proper role of the schools is to teach values. Any society that adheres to this fabrication is a society that is determined to indoctrinate and not educate. Indoctrination is a tool employed by those who want to control and enslave people.
People must understand that government will use any fabrication it can to take those liberties and freedoms from us that were given to us by our Creator. The only proper role for government is to protect those liberties and freedoms, not to control and regulate them.
Unless the American people understand that government is at best a necessary evil, that to trust government is to sacrifice liberty and freedom, that government that governs least governs best, America will become a Marxist totalitarian state.
The American left has told us that they will transform the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state and the RINO’s are their useful idiots aiding and advancing this transformation.
Central planning, such as is used in collectivist nations, always fails. When government plans an economy, the economy is certain to fail. It always has and always will. When bureaucrats believe they are better at planning what companies should produce, or how companies should run their businesses, the economy is certain to fail. It always has and always will. The American Left is telling us government must plan the economy.
Bureaucrats to often come from academia, where they have taught theory, and seldom to they come from the real world of business where they have run a successful business. The theorists make decisions based on factors other than results. Business executives make decisions based on what the consumer is telling them they want and need.
We are seeing this difference in the energy industry for example. The bureaucrats are telling us that, for their own reasons, we must rely on wind and the sun for our energy needs. This sounds good to some, but it has not, can not produce the energy necessary to run our economy today. It might have worked prior to the automobile, electric lights, air conditioning and heating, prior to a modern economy. Those central planners today who are calling for us to abandon fossil fuel energy are doing all that has brought failure because of central planners of the past.
When you boil it down, large-scale central planners fail because they believe three things that aren’t true.
First, that they know current conditions (wants, desires, hopes, capabilities, resources). In other words, that they know the exact and entire present state of the community they are planning for.
Second, that they know where the community ought to go; that is, that they know what the future ought to be.
Third, that they are capable of creating the future they want.
None of those things is more than an illusion. Together, they constitute what F. A. Hayek called “the fatal conceit that man is able to shape the world around him according to his wishes.”
Central planners have lived in an imaginative world in the past and they live in an imaginative world today.
The percentage of Americans who say they believe in God has dipped to the lowest number in the past nearly 80 years, according to a new Gallup poll. The Values and Belief poll showed 81% of people answered that they believe in God. That is down six percentage points from the 87% of respondents who said they believed in God in the 2017 poll. This year is the lowest percentage in Gallup’s trend since the public opinion polling company first asked the question in 1944.
The poll found that the belief in God has plummeted the most in recent years among young adults and people on the left of the political spectrum, namely liberals and Democrats. The question asked was about belief in God. Belief in God is not necessarily about belief in the Bible and that the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ and the cross. It would be interesting to see those numbers on the left of the political spectrum.
Even so, the drop in the numbers of belief in God is a direct correlation to the rise in crime of all kinds, to the support for sexual perversions, to the support for sexual immorality, to the support for immorality, for the support for pedophilia, for the support to destroy the family, for support to indoctrinate children, and for the support of all that is evil.
A God less society is always a society in decline. The collectivist movement is an anti-God movement. The collectivist movement teaches atheism and the worship of the secular state. The American Left is indoctrinating Americans is the ways of the secular state, using propaganda to reinforce that indoctrination, and enforcing their ideas through all forms of intimidation.
It is certain that unless the Church, and by the Church I do no mean the secular meaning of the Church but I mean the Biblical meaning of the Church which would be those redeemed by the blood of Christ which was shed on the cross, will stand against the evils thrust upon society by the secular left, the United States will become a collectivist nation and will be ruled by the despotic Dictatorship of the Proletariat; we will become a Marxist nation. Christ’s church, we must rise and proclaim the name of Jesus.
The topic today is gun legislation. We are told to solve the problem of drug addicted kids, kids from single parent or no parent homes, kids who have been taught to shun respect for others and to not take pride in their accomplishments, is to violate the United States Constitution and infringe on the rights of law abiding and good citizens from owning guns. This is an easy argument for any who wish to control the lives, choices, and thoughts of others.
It is also far less of a political threat to professional politicians if they shy away from discussing causes of problems, causes of acts of violence, of acts of violating the natural rights of others or the life, liberty, and property of others. These causes are uncomfortable and threatening for not only the politically ambitious but also for those who seek riches and power.
Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence said. "The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be aid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments. Without religion, I believe that learning does real mischief to the morals and principles of mankind."
Having read biographies on Benjamin Rush, I can attest that when Rush said religion, he did not mean religion such as in promoting the religions of Secularism, Communism, or Islam. When Rush said religion he was referring to the Gospel of Jesus Christ as outlined in the Bible from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21.
Noah Webster, author of the first American Speller and the first Dictionary stated, "The moral principles and precepts contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. . . All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible."
Ronald Reagan told us, “We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”
The politically ambitious and the money and power seekers disagree with Rush, Webster, and Reagan. The politically ambitious and the money and power seekers claim that all evil can be eliminated if we simply address the symptoms of crime and ignore the causes. These people instead seek to increase any and all welfare programs which have destroyed the core family. Since LBJ and his great society was introduced in 1965, out-of-wedlock birth rates have soared. In 1965, 24 percent of black infants and 3.1 percent of white infants were born to single mothers. By 1990, the rates had risen to 64 percent for black infants and 18 percent for white infants. Twenty years later it’s now 72 percent of black infants, 30 percent of white infants and 53 percent of Hispanic infants.
63 percent of youth suicides are from fatherless homes, 85 percent of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes, 80 percent of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes, 71 percent of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes, 70 percent of juveniles in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes.
That the welfare state has been the biggest contributor to these devastating numbers is never discussed. The way these numbers are being discussed in today’s society is to encourage failure by lowering achievement and discipline standards, by creating even greater numbers of essentially homeless children, by making drugs even more accessible, or simply by promoting the programs of the American Left, which are Communists have as their number one goal to destroy the family. They have been successful.
Today, our children are not encouraged to be good citizens but are instead rewarded for bad behavior by removing consequences for bad behavior. Today our children are rewarded for failure by punishing those who do seek achievement and lowering the standards so more and more will fail. Today we strive to teach victimhood so the politician and those seeking money and power will have larger and larger bases.
The policies promoted by the American Left, the politicians, and those who seek riches and power is a proven way of how to destroy a society. This has been proven time and time again. The teachings we find in the Bible are the antithesis to this. The Bible teaches that nobody has to be a victim, but all can be welcomed into the Kingdom of God. The Bible teaches that any civilized society must impose consequences for bad behavior. Bad behavior is the same today as it was in Genesis through Revelation.
The Bible also reveals the devastating destruction and misery brought about by society rewarding bad behavior. The Bible also teaches that the ambitious politician and those seeking riches and power will distort Biblical teachings, they will preach that good is evil and that evil is good, they will promote perversions of all kinds, they will promote reliance on government or themselves, and they will promote victimhood and then dominate and destroy the very people they were claiming to help.
Americans, we harm our future when we believe that what is happening in our nation is unique to our nation. It is not. It has been happening since the beginning of time. The ambitious claim they have the answers to all problems. Their answers are answers that will eventually enslave all to them and give them the riches and power they seek. They will dismiss the teachings of the Bible, which in fact has all the answers, and these are the answers that promote a free and prosperous society.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
