It is alleged that a woman asked Benjamin Franklin, “Sir what have you done?” and allegedly Mr. Franklin replied, “A Republic Ma’am if you can keep it.” Sound the alarm loudly and let it be known that the week of June 21. 2015 – June 27, 2015, the Republic, commonly known as America, was buried 6 feet under. Merely one week shy of the 239th Birthday of “Independence”, the union formed ‘of the people, by the people, for the people’ gasped it’s last breath which was already on life support.
Perhaps some readers will laugh at what they believe is alarmist, others will ignore, and some will actually celebrate the foundation of this “new’ United Statism of Amerika. However a large number of individuals who understand the Founder’s intent for this country, will share in mourning the demise of the once great beacon for true freedom and liberty.
Back on July 8th, 1776, the Liberty Bell rang when the Declaration of Independence returned from the printer. Two days prior the Pennsylvania Evening Post became the first newspaper to print the Declaration of Independence and in stark contrast another Pennsylvania paper, the ironically named PennLive/’Patriot’-News printed a declaration of oppression on June 26th, 2015 stating: “As a result of Friday’s ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage.” Would Benjamin Franklin approve of this silencing of free speech due to personal opinion? ABSOLUTELY NOT!! In fact here is one of his most notable quotes, “Without Freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom;and no such thing as public liberty, without freedom of speech.”
This past Friday, June 26th the Supreme Court proclaimed same-sex “marriages” to be legal in all 50 states. Many in the country cheered and demonstrated loudly that now there was truly “real” freedom in the nation and anyone voicing another viewpoint were bullied and threatened in order to be “silenced”, thus already displaying “free speech” issues. Regardless of opinion however, the term marriage is never mentioned in the Bill of Rights nor any other amendments, although Bill Clinton signed the “Defense of Marriage Act” into law back in 1996, the Supreme Court originally struck it down in 2013. Since the Constitution does not delegate powers to the federal government in regard to marriage, the powers for this issue were delegated solely to the states according to the Tenth Amendment. Regrettably Justice Kennedy abused the 14th Amendment by stating, “certain personal choices central to individual dignity and autonomy, including intimate choices that define personal identity and beliefs (were extended with the amendment.)” What part of the original amendments or any statement from any of the authors of the Constitution lead him to believe such nonsense? Perhaps the only quote including the word ‘intimate’ is from George Washington who warned, “Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.” Perchance a more befitting quote for Kennedy, personally spoken by Washington, is the following, “I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.”
Back in 1792, Declaration Signer James Wilson, one of original six justices appointed by President Washington wrote in his “Of the Natural Rights of Individuals” document, “The most important consequence of marriage is, that the husband and the wife become in law only one person… Upon this principle of union, almost all the other legal consequences of marriage depend.” Justice Wilson, nor any other Judge during Colonial Times would have agreed with the current Supreme Court, since homosexuality was a death-penalty-punishable-crime. In fact General George Washington court martialed anyone “attempting to commit sodomy”. Plus Noah Webster’s dictionary defined sodomy as a ‘crime against nature’. Thus to claim the 14th Amendment would extend to same-sex relationships is seriously flawed and deceptive. Furthermore, the 1874 case “Minor vs. Happersett” based on discrimination due to gender/sex (in relation to voting) lost: “The right of suffrage was not necessarily one of the privileges or immunities of citizenship before the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment, and that amendment does not add to these privileges and immunities. It simply furnishes additional guaranty for the protection of such as the citizen already had.”
Albeit the 14th Amendment may be one of the most discussed, debated additions to the Bill of Rights, the ratification in 1868 was expressly for Black Americans whose inalienable rights were being ignored as freed slaves. Every descendant of Chattel slaves should thus be questioning the misuse of the amendment. In addition, every freedom loving individual should be examining closer the unconstitutional decision of SCOTUS established by the case Obergefell v. Hodges. Not only did the outcome shred state’s rights and misinterpret the 14th Amendment, the Justices also unlawfully stretched beyond their role clearly defined in Article III of the Constitution, section 2, “The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution…” Since the Constitution had no federal authority for marriage granting only states this power, the Supreme Court created a new law which caused dissenting Justice Scalia to decry the verdict, “a threat to democracy”. He continued his statement writing, “This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.” Naturally those applauding the determination scoffed at Scalia’s cautioning words labeling him everything from cantankerous to predictably homophobe simply for expressing the lawful truth. Though even the quite conflicting dissent from Justice Roberts stated, supporters of gay marriage should celebrate, “but do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”
This new same-sex marriage ruling by SCOTUS gave increased power to the Judicial Branch while stripping powers from the Legislative Branch and the States, thus affecting “the people”. Despite the fact same-sex “marriage” supporters and participants strongly voice “the people won”, this thought is not aligned with the original framers of America. In point of fact, Alexander Hamilton who wrote in the Federalist Paper, “[The Judicial Branch] may truly be said to have neither FORCE nor WILL, but merely judgment..,” also affirmed, “The State governments possess inherent advantages, which will ever give them an influence and ascendancy over the National Government, and will for ever preclude the possibility of federal encroachments. That their liberties, indeed, can be subverted by the federal head, is repugnant to every rule of political calculation.”
Moreover, Justice Roberts announced concern for First Amendment protection, “Today’s decision, for example, creates serious questions about religious liberty.” Confirming Robert’s concerns, Justice Thomas penned, “Aside from undermining the political processes that protect our liberty, the majority’s decision threatens the religious liberty our Nation has long sought to protect. Numerous amici—even some not supporting the States—have cautioned the Court that its decision here will “have unavoidable and wide-ranging implications for religious liberty…………. Had the majority allowed the definition of marriage to be left to the political process—as the Constitution requires—the People could have considered the religious liberty implications of deviating from the traditional definition as part of their deliberative process. Instead, the majority’s decision short-circuits that process, with potentially ruinous consequences for religious liberty.”
Isn’t religious freedom one of the main reasons British colonists escaped King George’s theocracy? Obviously the creators of the founding documents believed religious freedom was the most important foundation to a Free Republic by ordering it to be first! “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech….” Does this new SCOTUS resolution stab the very heart of the formation of America? Now if one opposes homosexual unions based off religious convictions, does it not now put them at risk of lawsuits and public persecution? Persecution of Christian bakers, photographers, florists, restaurants, clergy and individuals already began prior to the unlawful court decision, so now any protection for religious freedom under the First Amendment has certainly been further eroded. Certainly the Founding Fathers (and Mothers) who sacrificed life, blood, family and fortune are crying from their own graves. For instance John Adams said in a speech to the military in 1798, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Perhaps the same-sex issue was the final nail pounded into America’s coffin, but it was not the only death nail which occurred last week. In addition the Supreme Court also upheld the unconstitutional Obamacare with their 6-3 decision of King v. Burwell. Once again the Constitutional Justice on the Supreme Court, Scalia wisely warned in his dissent, “Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is “established by the State.”
This case was brought forth due to the fact Senate created a separate bill from the House and titled it “The Affordable Care Act”. Furthermore this “act” included a long list of ‘taxes” disguised as “fees” and “penalties”. According to the Articles of the Constitution however, it is the House of Representatives and not Senate which is allowed to initiate tax measures. Even Justice Roberts admitted to this fact in addition he divulged “the Constitution does not allow the government to force people to buy consumer products.” Yet SCOTUS once again ruled against the people while dismissing key components of the Constitution.
On a roll for tyranny, the Justices infringed upon property rights which is a key agenda in collectivism. Veritably Karl Marx wanted to abolish private property as defined in his Communist Manifesto because he believed property was oppression of the poor. In contrast, the role of the Republican form of limited government is to simply protect life, liberty, and property. However last week SCOTUS became traitors of property rights by ruling 5-4 in a case initiated by Inclusive Communities Project which claimed discrimination with the Texas Housing Authority in Dallas, Texas. The Texas department defended their position by stating, “ the Fair Housing Act of 1968 required that plaintiffs show intentional discrimination”. The lynching continued with newly oathed attorney general Loretta gloating, “The Department of Justice will continue to vigorously enforce the Fair Housing Act with every tool at its disposal.”
Not cheering the decision was Texas Governor Abbot whose office issued the following statement, “If Congress wanted to allow people to bring ‘disparate impact’ claims, it would have said so. Worse, the court’s opinion raises serious constitutional problems because it potentially forces housing authorities to commit intentional racial discrimination to avoid unintentional ‘disparate impacts.'” In addition, property owners lose control and are prohibited from renting their homes to individuals as they see fit to protect their investments. Unfortunately this decision against property owners is in line with Obama’s radical “Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative” which includes federal grant money and HUD rules to end segregation in all neighborhoods across the country.
Not backing down from the deconstruction of America, the Supreme Court also infringed upon state’s rights by blocking Texas abortion-clinic rules. In what seems to be a trend with the nine judges, the ruling was 5-4 with Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito agreeing to allow the state to move ahead with regulations requiring abortion facilities to be constructed like surgical centers.
Nonetheless, the Supreme Court refused to protect America by not taking voter ID cases from both Arizona and Kansas. Each state requires voter applicants to provide proof of citizenship, however the U.S. EAC denied the states to apply their laws on the federal form. Two years ago the Supremes ruled that state proof-of-citizenship laws couldn’t be applied when people try to register with the federal form. By not hearing the case, the Supreme Court effectively upheld the decision of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled against Arizona and Kansas. UC-Irvine Professor Rick Hasen wrote on his election law blog, “This is a very big deal…. had the potential to shift more power away from the federal government in administering elections toward the states.”
Therefore with a few strokes of the pen, the Supreme Court aided in the growth of a centralized government while shredding the Constitution and original foundation of the Republic.
Therapist Nathaniel Branden, the former intimate partner of Ayn Rand while she was writing “Atlas Shrugged”, penned: “The policy of seeking values from human beings by means of force, when practiced by an individual, is called crime. When practiced by a government, it is called statism .” The noun ‘statism’ is defined as a political system in which the state has substantial centralized control over social and economic affairs. In contrast, the Founders of America, formed a republic form of government, a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of the people entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly by them. Factually, in 1787 the Continental Congress drafted the Articles of the Constitution not to manage the people or the states, but to limit and manage the government itself. The intention was to establish a structure affording true freedom with some law preventing anarchy or the creation of an oligarchy, an organization of a small group controlling every aspect of the country. Disastrously, in present day USA we are witnessing total chaos which the JBS’ “Overview of America” documentary perfectly details as a calculated movement of “anarchists breaking down the existing government via looting, rioting, killing and terror.”
Last week the calculation was observed with a mob rule demanding the removal of the Confederate Flag from the public square triggered by a mysterious shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina in which 9 people, including the senior pastor were murdered. Worthy to note, this Episcopal Church which is nearly 200 years old has long been at the center of various ‘anti-slavery’, ‘civil rights’, and ‘black lives matter’ movements. Mainstream media quickly established a narrative that the shooter Dylann Roof was a white supremacist and displayed images of him with guns and Confederate flags. Instead of the controlled media questioning how Roof learned to be a frontsight expert and adroitly reloading his gun 5 times? Or delving into his big pharmaceutical addictions and prior drug arrests? Researching his entire history and answering why an alleged ‘racist’ resided in a majority Black-American neighborhood? They focused on a false flag account which caused a national commotion on the real history and symbolism of the old battle banner. Media outlets and politicians pushed only a one-sided viewpoint while Amazon, Wal-mart, and manufacturers banned Confederacy merchandise. Some radicals are now demanding the removal of the Stars & Stripes with American flag burnings across the land sparked by lies, myths and distortions of America history.
What the “flag” wars proved last week is that collectivism reigns with mob rule and traitors in power. No longer can individualists live, speak, or worship freely without dire consequences or retribution. Onkar Ghate, Senior Fellow with the Ayn Rand Institute, once noted, “Freedom is an intellectual achievement which requires disavowal of collectivism and embrace of individualism.” Thomas Jefferson’s following quote confirms the direction of this land, “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Clearly last week with the removal of historical flags and unconstitutional court rulings, the mob ruled and rights of the majority were stripped.
In addition to the mobs, media, and the highest court in the USA, ‘elected representatives’ aided in the final destruction of America the Republic with the passage of the Trade Promotion Authority/Trade Authority Agreement commonly nicknamed Obamatrade which POTUS signed into law yesterday. The agreements granted unconstitutional powers to the Executive Branch allowing the president to make deals with just mere Congressional votes without discussions or amendments. In rare form, democrats actually attempted to derail this bill in order to protect Americans, but republicans organized with support to assist moving the bill forward. During the signing, Obama actually thanked republicans for the victory.
People from all walks of life and political views rallied to prevent the passage of this detrimental law. The first vote proved a win for the people, but the GOP insisted on bringing it back for a second vote which proved a loss for the people. Before the vote “Economy in Crisis” cautioned: “Fast Track also allows the White House to work in secrecy with negotiators and lobbyists from large multinational corporations to rewrite policies that affect areas from job security for average Americans, to the health and safety of our food. In the past, utilizing Fast Track has resulted in foreign entities attacking our domestic health policies and environmental standards.” Moreover, Wikileaks provided a sneak peak of the deal by posting text of the ‘secretive’ document revealing that indeed Americans should be concerned. For one, the Fast Track allows for more foreign workers in the following private sector fields of computer programming, construction. engineering, healthcare, management, and the service industry (hotel/restaurants). Sadly, due to the Fast Track’s international business and environmental laws, American businesses and wages will be negatively affected.
For decades globalists have been implementing new trade deals while the media campaigns benefits and job growth to those who will listen, yet the real numbers show a strikingly different reality. According to a report which cites the US Census Bureau, more than 146 million Americans are poor or low income; 41% earn $20,000 or less annually, and labor statistics continue to decline. Perhaps we cannot predict the future, but as cited by the Economic Policy Institute “Trade and globalization policies have major effects on the wages and incomes of American workers and on the vitality of American industries such as manufacturing.” With the combination of a rising national debt and the above economic/labor statistics, how can American families survive financially? The original liberty defenders of the Republic wisely realized that personal finances were an instrumental portion for overall freedom. In his first Inaugural Address on March 4, 1801, Thomas Jefferson spoke the following words, “A wise and frugal government… shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”
Encompassing all aspects including social issues, religion, politics, media, and economics, the liberty of the majority were adversely affected last week. Co-architect of the New Deal, Harry Hopkins once admitted, “We shall Tax and Tax, Spend and Spend, Elect and Elect, because the people are too damn dumb to know the difference”. Harry was right! Too many in America either ignored the words in the Founding Documents, choosing instead to just “live their lives” placing blind trust in their politicians and alleged ‘news” sources or they allowed themselves to be willingly indoctrinated with falsehoods creating misunderstandings and division. In the meantime, in secretive Bilderberg, Tri-lateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, and Congressional meetings, the deconstruction of the Republic was plotted throughout the generations from the implementation of the criminal Federal Reserve to this past Monday’s White House signature of the Fast Track. The complete promised “transformation of America” is complete.
Every year the Liberty Bell rang in honor of President Washington’s birthday, until 1846 when the crack grew to the present size we see today. However throughout the years the bell was ceremoniously tapped until 1976 when the historical symbol of freedom was permanently displayed as a monument. More alert members of “we the people” may have realized the original freedom and independence declared by the Founders were already a memory of the distant past. Since the bicentennial, many liberty defenders have worked tirelessly trying to educate and wake up others before the tyranny grew too big and we developed into a new country completely opposite of the original. Regrettably their voices were overshadowed by the noise of the deceiving collectivists who worked aggressively for radical “change”.
Vladimir Lenin once confessed, “The goal of socialism is communism.” While Mao Zedong dictated, “Communism is not love. Communism is a hammer for which we use to crush the enemy.” Maybe Mao’s comment was brutal, but at least he was honest about the goal. In contrast of honesty, the “most transparent” administration, exempted the executive branch from Freedom of Information Act requests. Why the exemption? Does the Obama office have something to hide? What has not been secret is Obama’s associations with Mao during his tenure including a Christmas ornament in honor of the communist dictator. So were the events of last week ‘a crushing of the enemy’? Maybe, but regardless history will prove it happened during the Obama administration.
Rewind to the 2012 campaign season, the Dinesh D’Souza documentary “2016: Obama’s America” forewarned that POTUS’ reshaping of the country would be finished by the end of his second term leaving behind a system completely devoid of any likeness to what the Founding Father’s established. With 18 more long months to go, if the current course continues, D’Souza’s predictions will be the new reality. Nonetheless, last week indeed ended a Constitutional Republic.
Three days from now “Americans” will be honoring July 4th with picnics, camping, music, games, drink and fireworks, however it shan’t be “independence” the people will be celebrating, because now true freedom and liberty is a memory. But no one should mourn! Enlightened individuals should instead recharge and remember what the first tea partier, Samuel Adams stated, “The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.”
It is time ‘sunshine patriots’ to wipe away the tears, to shut down social media outrage, and instead join active oath keepers and defenders across the land and spark another brush-fire! Heed the advice from Thomas Paine, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” The time to stand up tirelessly is NOW! The Liberty Bell cannot ring again until the believers of REAL liberty stand up with faith and “to alter or…abolish … and …. institute (a)new Government’ established with liberty containing free and independent states for ALL the people!
Be strong, bold, and encouraged by the following words from John Adams: “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” Adams is correct, history proves that people do not enjoy the constraints of tyranny, since it really only benefits the power elite as confirmed by Ayn Rand, “Ask yourself why totalitarian dictatorships find it necessary to pour money and effort into propaganda for their own helpless, chained, gagged slaves, who have no means of protest or defense. The answer is that even the humblest peasant or the lowest savage would rise in blind rebellion, were he to realize that he is being immolated, not to some incomprehensible noble purpose, but to plain, naked human evil.”
America was not lost overnight, it took generations of plotting evil men (and women) to destroy the Republic, so patriots cannot expect a new Republic to be born overnight as it will take generations of faith, diligence and dedication to the cause of liberty to regain what we the people lost. It is best we begin by getting on our knees and repenting! Then with courage, wisdom and unity move forth with Founding Father-like rebellion and God’s guidance! May “we the people” prevail as permanent tyranny is not an option! Let’s proclaim that by the will of God, the Liberty Bell will ring again! “WOLVERINES!”
