Dumb and Dumber

You may recall that pResident Obama spoke of three former Presidents making prisoner swaps at the end of wars that took place on their watch, “much like this Bergdahl swap” he said convincingly.

CNN carried this quote, “This is what happens at the end of wars.”

Obama boasted Tuesday when he was asked about swapping American Army Sgt. Deserter for five vicious Taliban terrorists. “That was true for George Washington…That was true for Abraham Lincoln and that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation, that at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back, and that’s the right thing to do.”

Save Our Constitutional Republic

Family Security Matters
In the sweltering heat of Philadelphia from May 25th to September 17th, 1787, 53 delegates from 12 of the original 13 colonies (Rhode Island refused to send any representatives) struggled mightily to come to an agreement to adopt a Constitution for the United States of America. When it was over, an exhausted Benjamin Franklin walked down the steps of the Pennsylvania State House and was asked, “What kind of government did you create, Mr. Franklin?” To which he replied, “A republic, if we can keep it.” Are today’s leaders respecting and protecting the Constitution that Franklin and his heroic and patriotic colleagues gave us in 1787?
Can we keep it?
I do not see how we can keep it, if we do not understand what “it” is. I know that sounds uncomfortably close to a Bill Clinton quote that we might all like to forget. However, the history teacher part of me cringes every time I hear the media, columnists and most of our elected leaders refer to America as a democracy. New England town meetings are democracies. The majority determines the issue at hand. The government of the United States is a REPUBLIC. We ELECT representatives who vote in our absence and on our behalf. We trust them to lead us. These representatives take only one oath, when they are elected. That oath is to uphold the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution contains an oath of office only for the President. However, in 1789 the first Congress added a requirement to include members of Congress and other government officials, because they knew that adherence to the spirit and intent of our Constitution was critical to the survival of our republic.

American Pursuit of Greatness

By MG Paul E. Vallely; US Army (Ret.)

Impeach Obama and Demand Resignation of a Regime

In the course of American history, when the nation was most in need of a leader who could rally the nation to literally survive catastrophes, a common man has come forth and done so, with valor, clarity of purpose, and vision. These unassuming, surprising men, like George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, FDR and Ronald Reagan, to name a few, each with their foibles and critics, stood up and secured the security and prosperity of this nation, FIRST and FOREMOST! Each gave the nation a sense of purpose and vision, instilled with legitimate hope, and changed the course of the ship of state away from the rocks, and into navigable waters leading to victory, recovery, and success.

In the course of modern day events, unfolding by the minute, America has never been more in need of such leadership. However, we are now in a situation where the current leadership (or lack thereof) of the nation has done something quite extraordinary, they have found a way to do destroy America. They have charted a course of designed failure. True leaders do not lay blame upon others, they do not lie to, and manipulate the citizenry, they do not cast personal aspersions, they do not cloud arguments, they do not twist facts, they lead by example. They do what is in the best interest of the nation, FIRST!

George Washington, John Jay, and the Natural Law Definition of “Natural Born Citizen”

Does this mean that George Washington and John Jay were the First Birthers?                                            1 Dragon

On April 30, 1789,  George Washington took the oath of office as President of the United States from the balcony of Federal Hall in New York City.  The President and Congress shared space in Federal Hall with the New York Society Library.

Some of the records of that Library are of particular interest when considering the influence of the works of Emmerich de Vattel on our Founding Fathers.

Why does this matter? Because of how Vattel defined a term that our Founders wrote into our Constitution, and the implications to Barack Hussein Obama.

I have always been told that you learn something everyday. Well this is what I learned today. Please feel free to share this with everyone you know.

One detail that is never mentioned is that in Washington , D.C. there can never be a building of greater height than the Washington Monument . With all the uproar about removing the ten commandments, etc., this is worth a moment or two of your time.. I was not aware of this amazing historical information.

On the aluminum cap, atop the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C. , are displayed two words: Laus Deo.

No one can see these words. In fact, most visitors to the monument are totally unaware they are even there and for that matter, probably couldn’t care less.

Once you know Laus Deo’s history , you will want to share this with everyone you know. These words have been there for many years; they are 555 feet, 5.125 inches high, perched atop the monument, facing skyward to the Father of our nation, overlooking the 69 square miles which comprise the District of Columbia, capital of the United States of America.

The Meaning of Natural Born Citizen

There were three types of citizens at the time of the signing of the Constitution:

1. Those who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the Declaration of Independence.  On that day, July 4, 1776, millions of former British subjects became citizens of a sovereign America.

2. The children, their heirs, born of those pledged citizens, were the first natural-born citizens of the new nation.

3. A person naturalized into citizenship through an act of law requiring an oath and and renunciation to any former allegiance.

We are either a United people, or we are not. If the former, let us, in all matters of general concern act as a nation, which have national objects to promote, and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act a farce by pretending to it.

George Washington, letter to James Madison, November 30, 1785

U.S. Constitution to Obama

Human Events

You do not currently serve in a monarchical form of government.

You represent only one of the three branches of government, and the other two are equal to yours.

You are not the Supreme Leader, nor are you the king, nor are you the Messiah or dictator or whatever term for a ruler you have convinced yourself that you are.

You see, in the late 18th Century, George Washington and the other Founders decided to create a nation of free men, a republic, as it were, in which men were not ruled by an individual or individuals, but men who determined their own lives and their futures for themselves.

Aside:  I am speaking very slowly for you, Mr. President, to be sure you understand, as you are polite enough to do the same for the knuckle dragging citizenry you have to pay attention to from time to time.

The only other kinds of governments that existed in the rest of the world at that particular epoch were monarchies, military governments or dictatorships.  The establishment of a republic of free men had never before happened in history, and General Washington and the others fought a war and risked their lives to achieve this extraordinary goal.  Well, surprisingly to the rest of the world, and quite frankly to a lot of Americans, it worked.  This amazing group of men indeed started the United States of America, where I repeat, men are not told what to do, they make their own decisions.  We are a free people and have been for over 220 years.

We could have had a ruler in the United States, were it not for the far-sightedness and devotion to country of our leadership at the time.  The greatest of our founders, George Washington, was asked three times, in various forms, to be the ruler, in fact the monarch, of the new United States of America.

When he was first offered the crown of the nascent nation, he responded by saying, “Let me conjure you then, if you have any respect for your country, concern for yourself or for posterity, or respect for me, to banish these thoughts from your mind, and never communicate, as from yourself, or anyone else, sentiments of a like nature.”

The poor fellow was so discombobulated by this reaction that he wrote the General three letters of apology in as many days.

As you can see, this first and greatest of our leaders was horrified that anyone would think that he would accept to rule this republic, and to in effect establish yet another monarchy, no matter how benign.  The whole point in his and the others’ extraordinary efforts was to create a true republic, in which, I repeat, all men were free, in which the people are the sovereign. Americans have never been, and never will be, ruled.

Then, after he had against all odds been victorious in the Revolutionary War, he attempted to resign his commission as General in the Continental Army and return to his beloved Mount Vernon.  Congress pleaded with him to stay on and lead the nation, in the position of General for Life; he responded with an unequivocal no, and returned to private life at his farm in Virginia.

Subsequently, after having served two terms as President, when he announced to Congress that he was not going to run for a third term, (to them it was unimaginable that George Washington not be the leader of the nation), he was again pleaded with to stay on and lead the nation, this time as President for Life.  George Washington again refused, saying that in order to ensure the continuity of this young republic, he wanted to ensure a peaceful transfer of power to his elected successor.  To General Washington, the election of the second President of the United States was much more important than that of the first, as that would be the first time in history that such a peaceful transfer of power, then and for the future, would have been assured.

There is a wonderful lesson to be found in this story, Mr. President, actually many more than one, but this will do for now.  That lesson can be found in a very important word, and that word is humility.

George Washington lived a life guided by honor, dignity and the loftiness of a higher purpose.  He did this in an extraordinary life and in everything he thought and everything he did.  That is why he could always leave his cherished Mount Vernon when his nation needed him, leave his family, and have the vision not only to lead an army to a seemingly impossible victory but also the vision to create the first true republic in history.

And then he could give it all up.

George Washington could do this because he cared more about his country and his people than he cared about himself.  George Washington could do this because he understood how power really worked, and he made it work on behalf of his country and his people, not caring about, actually not wanting, power for himself.  George Washington could do this because, despite his greatness, or perhaps because of his greatness, he was a truly humble man.

If  Divine Providence, as he often referred to his God, had destined him to achieve, it was to achieve something greater than himself, something so lofty in its goals that he would give up everything he had to make it happen.

Mr. President, as you can see, in his entire life, our first and greatest President did not pause to think about himself or his own desires, or concerns.  More than anything, he cared about his nation and its people, and the freedom he wanted them to be able to achieve through his and the others’ efforts.

So, do you understand in what position you are at this particular point in time?  You do not rule, you represent, the people who voted you into office.  Ergo, you do what the majority of the American people tell you to do, not the contrary.

Also according to the rules, which unfortunately you and your people do not seem to have had the time to read, (they are found in a document called the Constitution), the peoples’ representatives in Congress do what the American people tell them what to do, and not what you nor they (the Congressional representatives) might regard as what you think is better for them.  The reason why you and they (the Congressional representatives) were elected is because the people chose to vote you into power to do what they (the people) determined that you should do on their behalf.

I am sorry to have been somewhat repetitive; I just wanted to make sure that you understood in case I wasn’t going slowly enough.

And you most certainly do NOT tell the Supreme Court what to do, as they are an equal branch of government to yours.  These devoted public servants also deserve a modicum of politeness, which you, to your detriment, did not deign to give them. You are not above them; you are in fact not above anyone.  You are the peoples’ servant who lives in the peoples’ house.

For a very, very, very short time.
