An Interview With President Jefferson Davis

Gentlemen: I have transcribed this article from an English paper entitled “The Globe and Traveller” of September 2nd, 1864, of which I have an original in my possession. It is a negotiation interview between Jefferson Davis and Judah Benjamin of the Confederacy, and Colonel Jaques and J. R. Gilmore of the Union. I have emboldened a part that sums up what the South was all about.

Warmest Regards …Brian Lee Merrill

AN INTERVIEW WITH PRESIDENT DAVIS

The Atlantic Monthly in an article in the September number gives a narrative of Colonel Jaque’s interview with President Davis, which took place some time ago, exciting a great deal of curiosity at the time. The narrative is from the pen of J. R. Gilmore, a companion of Colonel Jaques. The substance of the communication between the President and the two negotiators was made public at the time, but the following extract will give a better idea of the proposal discussed:-

Colonel Jaques: “Suppose the two Governments agree to something like this:- to go to the people with two propositions – say, peace, with disunion and Southern independence, as your proposition, and peace, with union, emancipation, no confiscation, and universal amnesty, as ours. Let the citizens of all the United States (as they existed before the war) vote “Yes” or “No” on these two propositions, at a special election, within 60 days. If a majority votes disunion, our Government to be bound by it, and to let you go in peace; if a majority votes union, yours to be bound by it, and to stay in peace. The two Governments can contract in this way, and the people, though unconstitutionally unable to decide on peace or war, can elect which of the two propositions shall govern their rulers. Let Lee and Grant meanwhile agree to an armistice. This would sheath the sword; and if once sheathed would never again be drawn by this generation.”

President Davis: “The plan is altogether impracticable. If the South were only one state it might work; but, as it is, if one Southern state objected to the emancipation, it would nullify the whole thing, for you are aware that the people of Virginia cannot vote slavery out of South Carolina, nor the people of South Carolina vote it out of Virginia.”

Colonel Jaques: “But three-fourths of the States can amend the constitution. Let it be done in that way, in any way, so that it be done by the people. I am not a statesman or a politician, and I do no know just how such a plan could be carried out; but you get the idea – that the people shall decide the question.”

President Davis:”That the majority shall decide it you mean. We seceded to rid ourselves of the rule of the majority, and this would subject us to it again.”

Colonel Jaques: “But the majority must rule finally, either with bullets or ballots.”

President Davis:”I am not so sure of that. Neither current events nor history shows that the majority rules, or ever did rule. The contrary, I think, is true. Why, Sir, the man who should go before the Southern people with such a proposition, with any proposition which implied that the North was to have a voice in determining the domestic relations of the South, could not live here a day. He would be hanged to the first tree, without judge or jury.”

Colonel Jaques: “Allow me to doubt that. I think it more likely he would be hanged if he let the Southern people know the majority couldn’t rule,” I replied smiling.

President Davis:”I have no fear of that,” rejoined Mr. Davis, also smiling good humouredly. “I give you leave to proclaim it from every housetop in the South.”

Colonel Jaques: “But, seriously, sir, you let the majority rule in a single State: why not let it rule in the whole country?”

President Davis:”Because the states are independent and sovereign. The country is not. It is only a confederation of states; or rather it was; it is now two confederations.”

Colonel Jaques: “Then we are not a people – we are only a political partnership?”

President Davis:”That is all.”

Judah Benjamin: “Your very name, sir, ‘United States,’ implies that,” said Mr. Benjamin. “But tell me, are the terms you have named – emancipation, no confiscation, and universal amnesty – the terms which Mr. Lincoln authorised you to offer us?”

Colonel Jaques: “No, sir; Mr. Lincoln did not authorise me to offer you any terms. But I think both he and the Northern people, for the sake of peace, would assent to some such conditions.”

President Davis:”They are very generous,” replied Mr. Davis, for the first time during the interview showing some angry feeling. “But amnesty, Sir, applies to criminals. We have committed no crime. Confiscation is of no account, unless you can enforce it. And emancipation! You have already emancipated nearly two millions of our slaves, and if you will take care of them you may emancipate the rest. I had a few when the war began. I was of some use to them; they never were of any to me. Against their will you ’emancipated’ them, and you may ’emancipate’ every Negro in the Confederacy, but we will be free. We will govern ourselves. We will do it if we have to see every Southern plantation sacked, and every Southern city in flames.”

Colonel Jaques: “I see, Mr. Davis, it is useless to continue this conversation,” I replied, “and you will pardon us, if we have seemed to press our views with too much pertinacity. We love the old flag, and that must be our apology for intruding upon you at all.”

Colonel Jaques: As we were leaving the room Mr. Davis said,

President Davis:”Say to Mr. Lincoln from me that I [shall be] at any time he pleased to receive proposals for peace on the basis of our independence. It will be useless to approach me with any other.”

Colonel Jaques: When we went out Mr. Benjamin called Judge Ould, who had been waiting during the whole interview – two hours – at the other end of the hall, and we passed down the stairway together. As I put my arm within that of the judge, he said to me- “Well, what is the result?” “Nothing but war – war to the knife.” “Ephraim is joined to his idols – let him alone,” added the Colonel solemnly.

ROBERT’S RULES OF ORDER

Where there is no law, but every man does what is right in his own eyes, there is the least of real liberty – Henry M. Robert

Early in the history of man, living in tribal communities crude procedures were developed for communication and the issuing of orders. This usually was in the form of authoritarian rule by a strong man of the tribe, but various rules were used to allow some discussion from others under the chief. From this developed military type rule and administrative procedures of various degrees.

The first official use of the term parliament came under King Henry III of England from 1216-1272 AD from certain Great Councils which were held among the Barons under King Henry III.

The proceedings of Parliament in ancient times, and for along while, “Thomas Jefferson wrote more than four and a half centuries later( in the preface to his famous Manual, discussed below) “were crude, multiform, and embarrassing. They have been, however, constantly advancing toward uniformity and accuracy….”

Many of the advances in the parliamentary system alluded to by Jefferson occurred from the latter part of the sixteenth century through the seventeenth century. The same period when the procedure of the House of Commons was undergoing its new development was also the time during which permanent English colonies were established and procedures developed in the western Hemisphere, beginning with Virginia in 1607 in the House of Burgesses.

The First Continental Congress, convening in Philadelphia on September 5, 1774, was made up of delegates largely unacquainted with the representatives of colonies other than their own, and most of the advance planning among the colonies had been by correspondence. Under the existing rules and customs, the Second Continental Congress carried on the war. It also directed the framing of, and adopted, the Declaration of Independence. In assemblies in each state, through similar proceedings perhaps somewhat modified by local tradition, colonial constitutions were drafted. The constitution of the United States was produced at the constitutional Convention in 1787, in the face of seemingly deep and discouraging disagreements. Parliamentary procedure was being used in the colonies and in the formation of the United States.

But the parliamentary system of the young United States needed further codification. As presiding officer of the Senate while serving as Vice-President of the United States (1797-1801), Thomas Jefferson saw this need. He concluded, concerning the system of rules that had developed, that the most practical model developed for the Congress had served as a prototype to most of the existing state legislatures as well.

In 1801 Jefferson’s Manual of Parliamentary Practice was published in which he extensively cited about fifty English works and documents on Parliamentary law and related subjects. Jefferson’s Manual is unchallenged as the first to define and interpret parliamentary principles for our democratic republic to offer a basic pattern of rules and a measure of uniformity for legislative processes of the United States. The House of Representatives adopted Jefferson’s Manual.

While other improvements were made based upon Jefferson’s Manual it was not until 1876, after some 13 years of study, experience with meetings of groups and efforts to write, that Henry Martyn Robert published his first edition entitled “Robert’s Rules of Order”. By 1915 there had been three editions totaling over a half a million copies. Robert’s Rules of Order, Newly Revised in 1990 are essentially the rules of the United States House of Representatives, but also adaptable for smaller groups, societies and charities, thus making these rules clearly a “process usual and customary.”

The value today of Robert’s Rules of Order is in the contribution this orderly process is making for assemblies and societies to free themselves from confusion and dispute over rules governing the use of the different motions of parliamentary law.

Yet, incredibly, we have men today who are seriously trying to argue against the use of Robert’s Rules of Order for deliberations of the Southern Party Executive Committee. While it is possible to have our own rules of conduct for such deliberations, it defies the logic and the experience of the history of the formation of our country and requires the re-invention of the wheel so to speak. But, private rules would be understood only by those presenting them, leaving the other Delegates in a position of unfair disadvantage. The rule of law can easily be bent to suit the need of the moment when there is no established code of procedure which is “usual and customary” and available for study and use by all. Private rules can lead unfairly to unrighteous dominion by the rule maker.

These private rule men vainly have tried to argue that Kentucky law forbid the use of Robert’s Rules of Order. Yet, the citations they gave for such malarkey dealt with marshal law in Kentucky, which on the one hand would be administered by military rule and on the other hand failed to even mention the term “Robert’s Rules of Order” much less to forbid the usage thereof. However, Kentucky certainly does use Robert’s Rules of Order. KRS 146.485 Section 3, (5) Conduct of meetings:

a. “Robert’s Rules of Order” shall govern the conduct of all meetings of the commission. 13 Ky.R. 1319: eff. 2-10-87.

After having this pointed out to the Kentucky gentlemen, their claims were embarrassingly brushed off as a joke. (A joke in such serious business as that at hand for us of the South?)

Next another of the group of private-rule robots pushing for top down strong central control on a national level while lying about protecting State’s Rights and Sovereignty, have now claimed that the Texas Ethics Commission, where they have filed their holy PACs upon which they rely for their legality, does not use Robert’s Rules of Order. First of all, there is no prohibition by such commission. But then, being a commission of the type that it is, everything is administrative in what they do and, of course, there is no need for Robert’s Rule of Order when an organization is being run by higher up officers of the State.

Perhaps this is what this group of centralists desire because they need to be ruled by strong officers above them giving them clear orders as to what to do next. Perhaps they feel insecure in an atmosphere of freedom and independence. Again, that’s fine for the military, but it is very immature and unbecoming of men and women supposedly seeking freedom and independence. It also seems very Tory in nature such as those receiving orders and money from higher up. In fact, don’t we already have a very strong top down rule centralist government established in Washington, D. C? Why aren’t these men supporting that? Or maybe they already are; more than we would like to think.

Fortunately, there are enough real men and women who value and understand the elements of freedom and independence sufficiently to see through this supposed need for no rule of law except strong top down private-rule. It will take such real Southern State’s Rights people to establish a fraternity of Sovereign States in building a more perfect Federation. – Vance Beaudreau

The Root of Roots of our Economic Woes

We are seeing nation wide layoffs of large numbers of workers. This is not only jobs lost to NAFTA and WTO, etc. it is jobs being lost to a collapsing monetary system as the nation plunges deeper into economic instability and recession. There are still plenty of jobs in Texas in spite of some layoffs (unemployment rate only1.5%-3%), but the national situation is being allowed to happen by the Fed (Federal Reserve Bank).

The lowering interest rates by the Fed may tend to spark Wall Street a little, but it hurts older folks living on retirement income from interest. It may make the payments a little lower to buy a new house with 30 years of payments, but without jobs how can a person pay?

ASSET RESERVE RATIO LEVER (FRACTIONAL BANKING)

The other part of the equation is the ratio of loans to deposits the Fed and the FDIC allows banks to make. Leaving interest rates alone and allowing higher loans versus deposits is the another factor.

As an example lets say the ratio of loans to deposits was set at 10-1 by the Fed. (A small Bank in a medium sized town could loan out say $30,000,000.00 if they had $3,000,000.00 in deposits. ($3,000,000.00 will only earn the bank a net of less than $200,000.00 per year which is about break even for a shoe string bank)(The extra $30,000,000.00 above their deposits is simply created out of air and ink, but no one will notice).

The small bank simply borrows from larger banks at about 4.5% or from the Fed at about 2% up to their Fed imposed ratio limit. The bank charges perhaps an average of 8.5% for their loans, so this would amount to interest profits of say $1,500,000.00 per year for the bank on the created out-of-air credit which would be reflected in handsome earnings for the stock holders of that bank.

Meanwhile, directly and indirectly, the Fed earns interest at about 2% for $600,000.00 per year for their ink and air credit off of that one small bank. The nationwide earnings for the Fed stockholders are colossal and are tax exempt. This is a fraud called fractional banking that saw its hay day under Nimrod in the ancient city of Babylon.

This fraud, while similar in several respects, is thousands of times larger and more sophisticated that the Enron credit accounting scheme that is now being somewhat exposed. Because people need a safe and convenient place to put excess earnings (money) until they need it.

Depositories called banks have their place. Meanwhile, the banks have learned that they only need to keep 10% or less of cash on hand to handle their customers’ withdrawals opening the door for fractional banking. If there is a run on the bank, they could not pay everyone themselves.

But, if a run happens today, the banks simply would first get quick advances from larger banks or the Fed. Then, the FDIC (insurance) comes in to back up the scheme until the folks relax and allow the bank to use their money again. That’s the gist of how the air and ink credit fraud is managed.

FED UPSIDE

If the Fed, with no fanfare or press announcements, quietly changed the ratio to say 14 – 1, that would mean that the small Bank above could loan out an additional $12,000,000.00 in that small town. Such a town would likely have several other small sized banks so perhaps an extra $40,000,000.00 of air and ink money would be available in that example town.

Suddenly all kinds of loans that had been pending or turned down for new development, new companies, housing development projects, cars and furniture would be available creating the nearly immediate need for new workers and orders of inventory of all kinds. The danger of a bank run is greater, but as long as things are good and the borrowers are able to pay the interest, people are unconcerned and no run on the bank occurs.

Then, the Fed often raises interest rates considerably in order to discourage excess borrowing and to drive the ratio down somewhat while reaping massive tax free profits for the private and foreign owners of the Fed. This drains out-of-the-air money back out of the economy as real currency redeemable in goods and land repossessed by the banking system.

The Fed also loans huge amounts to the US Government in created money (credit ink and air money) and charges interest which must be paid back by the Government in real money from the sweat and genius of the citizen slave (workers) in the form of taxes collateralized, for example, by assignment of our National Forests. That way, the foreign owners of the Fed get something real for their ink and air money.

Economists in Colleges try to assure the students that there is a basis for the money created since a Government note is the security. But, the Government must offer collateral along with their notes and there goes our oil reserves and forests, etc. Our gold has long since been stolen away in this process and even if some gold is still in Fort Knox, it is in the accounts of foreign entities rather than the U.S. Government.

The Fed. bankrupted the United States after World War I and demanded confiscation of our best collateral, our gold. President Roosevelt did this evil deed for the banksters by suspending our Constitution and confiscating all our gold currency in 1933 by threat of 10 years in prison. People had to accept ink and air paper in exchange for their gold. Our students and professors are sadly mistaken in trying to justify this massive fraud.

To pay these massive interest profits to those foreign owners of the Fed stock for their ink and air loans, the Fed (along with some of the same people and entities that own and control the Bank of England) created the IRS in order to steal the labor from the people through taxes on their labor (unconstitutional personal income tax) and Congress never passed a bill authorizing the creation of the IRS.

Congress does pass laws relating to tax rates and pork barrel deductions for their favorite corporations. This fraudulent banking system and the required taxes from the IRS result in an extreme and ruthless form of ECONOMIC BONDAGE. The hapless American people have now all been made SLAVES and forced into involuntary servitude to the Fed/IRS stranglehold.

FED DOWNSIDE

When the Fed suspects it has pushed too far and the system is about to collapse, they have several tools more, such as loans from the International Monetary Fund, etc. Also, the Fed can cut the ratio back quietly with no disclosure to the public and small town Banks will suddenly be unable to make loans which they had been making, even to good customers and contractors.

Worse than that, they have a large number of businesses using a “line of credit” loan system which allows such business to borrow more as they need it and repay more when they have it to pay. Usually, such notes are on a 90 day basis.

When a contractor comes in to renew his 90 day credit note which he may have been doing for years, and pays his interest, the Banker has to tell him that either they cannot renew the loan of lets say $300,000.00 or that they can only renew a line of credit of $150,000.00.

This sudden and unexpected blow can be bankrupting to many businesses who cannot quickly convert enough assets to make up the reduction in credit. The bank then seizes the collateral which the contractor has put up for the loan, converting out-of-the-air money into tangible assets for the bank and the Fed system. Severe economic recession or even depression may occur from this as well as the economic hardship which is created against American businesses and workers.

FED OWNERS HAVE ALTERNATE CONTROL LEVERS

Many of the international entities that own stock in the Federal Reserve Bank also own considerable and even controlling stock in several of the World’s major international oil companies who make up OPEC. This has given a new tool to the Fed owners. They can increase production and cut fuel prices suddenly putting an extra $25-$50/month in the pocket of each American family.

That creates a sudden spurt of small goods buying and aids a sick economy. Then when things look okay, they raise the fuel prices again and reduce production. Fed owners may also ask the Government through the President and Congress for tax breaks and small cash infusions to the citizens in order to help spark some recovery.

CURRENCY VALUATION SET BY THE BANK OF ENGLAND DAILY

Another Control Lever that exists for these international banksters, who also own the majority of all of the other Central Banks of the industrialized world, is their ability to make immediate adjustments in the exchange rates for the currencies of the World which can bring a nation to its knees in international trade disadvantages.

CONFEDERATE SOLUTION

We can’t tackle the problem of the whole USA, but a cohesive South, if it is able to gain its Independence and Liberty, may be able to also gain freedom for its slave population (all of us of all races) and drive the IRS out of the South along with its hidden parents the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England. (Andrew Jackson vetoed the 2nd American Bank renewal charter for this reason and that brought the second war (1812) against us by the British. The Crown and their agents had large involvement in the 2nd American Bank).1

Returning the economy back to an asset economy rather than a debt economy will take time and much careful action. However, that is the root of roots of the economic bondage scheme around the world. Take away their ability to create money out of air that they loan us and we have to pay back with interest and the world elite will have to make major adjustments and do some belt tightening themselves and maybe sell some castles.

In other words, we must cancel the Federal Reserve Bank Charter along with the IRS for the South. The Fed is simply a slightly revised 2nd American Bank which President Jackson had vetoed earlier except that the stockholders of the Class A stock are supposed to be secret and it is mostly indirectly foreign owned or controlled. The dividends are tax exempt. See supplied chart of the Fed.

The economic policies of a Restored Confederacy will be as important as its military readiness, its trade policies and its political adhesiveness. The founding fathers knew this and tried to make gold and silver the asset basis of our money. Oil and uranium reserves also are effective in backing a currency as is the Gross National Product of goods, services and food. Since the South will not have much gold or silver to start with, a mixed basket of these other resources may be required to back our planned asset-basis monetary system.

Our envisioned asset economy worked okay for our forefathers until the international crowd inserted their agents to create dissension and chaos and re-inserted their control through credit banking schemes and centralization of power. That resulted in the War of Aggression against the South in order to force slavery of all races in the South and force the whole population into a credit economy under a planned central bank which would be owned and controlled by such international families and trusts owning Fed stock.

They had trouble getting it past some of our forefathers who remembered what Andrew Jackson (a Southerner) had taught them about this scheme. But finally, in 1913, President Woodrow Wilson under the advice of the international banking agent Col.

Wendell House, signed the Federal Reserve Bank bill handing over the people of and their assets in the United States to their new owners and slave masters, the super rich old family entities and royalty most of whom plan together in an organization referred to as “the Bilderbergers.”. These folks often have several castles (mansions) around the world and their own private jet liners and are, for the most part, largely above the laws of nations.

Reversing all of this will be difficult, take time and perhaps some compromise. Yet, if we are to be truly a free and liberated people, this must be accomplished. There is no reason that the Treasury Department of the Government of the Confederate States of America could not set up its own central bank. This way, all of the interest involved in loaning money to the various banks would go into the Treasury instead of the pockets of foreign stock holders. That, alone, would eliminate the need for personal income tax.

By the way, what happens to the billions of ink and air money that gets paid back? Is it destroyed? Why hasn’t the Fed ever been audited by the U. S. Government?
Why do we allow the Bank of England to set the value of our currency? Why doesn’t the U.S. set the value of our currency as required by our Constitution? Go see the movie “the Patriot.”

FEDERAL RESERVE BANK INFLUENCE AND OWNERSHIP CHART

1 EXCERPTS OF ANDREW JACKSON’S VETO OF THE 2NDAMERICAN BANK

WASHINGTON, July 10, 1832
To the Senate:
   The bill “to modify and continue” the act entitled “An act to incorporate the subscribers to the Bank of the United States” was presented to me on the 4th July instant. Having considered it with that solemn regard to the principles of the Constitution which the day was calculated to inspire, and come to the conclusion that it ought not to become a law, I herewith return it to the Senate, in which it originated, with my objections.

A bank of the United States is in many respects convenient for the Government and useful to the people. Entertaining this opinion, and deeply impressed with the belief that some of the powers and privileges possessed by the existing bank are unauthorized by the Constitution, subversive of the rights of the States, and dangerous to the liberties of the people, I felt it my duty at an early period of my Administration to call the attention of Congress to the practicability of organizing an institution combining all its advantages and obviating these objections. I sincerely regret that in the act before me I can perceive none of those modifications of the bank charter which are necessary, in my opinion, to make it compatible with justice, with sound policy, or with the Constitution of our country. . . .

More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners. [Mostly British including the Crown]. By this act the American Republic proposes virtually to make them a present of some millions of dollars.

THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AN UNRULY TEENAGER

In reality, Constitution is but a complex contract between certain parties. The Constitution of 1781, “The Articles of Confederation of the United States of America” was a concise contract between thirteen (13) American States. The Amended Articles of Confederation of the United States of America also called “the Constitution of 1789” is also, just an amended contract between the same parties (thirteen States).

The earlier version of this contract established a Congress with a President presiding over it for a term of one year. The newer Amended contract broadened the scope and created a Federal District (Later designated as Washington, D.C.) which was to be the seat of the Central or General Government of the Confederacy referred to also as the Federal or National Government.

The contract set powers for the General Government, a four year term for its President, and the organization by which the General Government would function and be funded. This contract was ratified by the various thirteen States and signed by the representatives of those States. Notice, the United States Federal Government is not a party to this contract, but the creature created, a child of this contract.

Owing to fears that the child would grow up to despise its parents (the States) and desire for itself, a King, a Bill of Rights containing the first Ten Amendments was Ratified in September 1789 and became effective December 15, 1791.

Today, the Constitution is still nothing but a contract between the original parties (13 States) and now including the new States as well. The Federal Government is still not a Party to the Constitution, but an unruly and demanding teenager created by that contract.

Today, the parties of that contract are the 50 States and they certainly and very easily can control the child if united to that purpose and if the child obeys. Otherwise, the contract parties (the States) are no longer bound to support such child, and may amend their contract or terminate their participation therein. (Secession).

SEPARATION OF POWERS

Militia of Washington CountyArkansas 

Part of the Constitutional Sixth Check and Balance

of the Separation of Powers

The Militia of Washington County,  Arkansas made up of volunteer civilian citizens from the area who operate directly under the Governor according to the Constitution of the State of Arkansas held a barbeque/open house for the public on Saturday, April 17, 2004. Captain Paul G. Smith of Fayetteville, Arkansas is the militia commander.  The men elect their own officers.

Attendees as well as militia men came and went during the day with around fifty persons coming out.  Inside the headquarters building was a display of arms, including  fully operational machine guns of several caliburs and a 25 mm artillery piece on wheels. owned and operated by the militia who stand ready to lend assistance to the Governor and their area of Arkansas should riots or other disorder disrupt the area.  Among the visitors enjoying the barbeque  was Independent U.S. Congressional candidate Dale Morfey and his wife.

Shortly after lunch, a demonstration of firepower was shockingly  and  loudly conclusive of the potential ability of this militia as the fire from several fully automatic weapons ripped and roared into the embankment of their test firing range on Militia acreage.  They referred to the noise as the sound of freedom from the citizens ready to defend Liberty.

Participants mentioned that there were several other private militias operating in Arkansas, but they were mostly covert and not open to public inspection, which is also their constitutional right.  Then there are Civilian Militias that openly operate and report to the Governor.  Both types of Militia have their Constitutional place for the people.

A serious project of this Militia of Washington County has been the preparation of a legal handbook of around 100 pages which outlines the legal and constitutional rights of citizens in regard to gun ownership and the right to “bear” arms.  This legal brief also documents the hazards of government gun registration,  restrictions on the type of guns that citizens may own and the danger of Federal firearms confiscation.

The principal author of this legal brief has been Wayne Fincher assisted by Robert McMullen of the SIP of Arkansas with advice and information from others including clarifications of the meanings of certain words and phrases in the Constitution and the laws by David Wilson.  This work should be published soon and should be of assistance to those opposing gun control and confiscation.  Other militias across the country may find the brief useful as well.

The Constitutions of our forefathers state the following:

U.S. CONSTITUTION 1789 states:

AMENDMENT II.    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The CSA CONSTITUTION 1861 states:

ARTICLE I, Section IX, Clause14.  A well-regulated militia being necessary to the  security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and  bear arms shall not be infringed.

The ARKANSAS CONSTITUTION 1874 states:

ARTICLE 2, Section 5.  Right to bear arms.  The citizens of this state shall have the right to keep and bear arms for their common defense. [That would include tanks and jet fighters if necessary for the defense of the State].

class=Section3>

ARTICLE 11, Section 1.  Persons liable to military duty.  The militia shall consist of all able-bodied male persons, residents of the State, between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years, except such as may be exempted by the laws of the United States or this State, and shall be organized, officered, armed and equipped and trained in such manner as may be provided by law.

ARTICLE 11, Section 2.  Volunteer companies.  Volunteer companies of infantry, cavalry or artillery may be formed in such manner and with such restrictions as may be provided by law.

ARTICLE 11, Section 3.  Privilege of members from arrest.  The volunteer and militia forces shall in all cases (except treason, felony and breach of the peace) be privileged from arrest during their attendance at muster and the election of officers, and in going to and returning from the same.

ARTICLE 11, Section 4.  Authority to call out volunteers or militia.  The governor shall, when the General Assembly is not in session, have power to call out the volunteers or militia, or both, to execute the laws, repel invasion, repress insurrection and preserve the public peace in such manner as may be authorized by law.

But, laws are only as good as the elected leaders and the people being led.  Good laws can be ignored and bad laws passed if the citizens allow such to occur.  Bands of bandits or terrorists can take control and rob the people if they and their elected leaders allow that to happen.  Also, corrupt rulers in the Federal government have used unrighteous laws which violate our State laws.   They have used deadly force upon our citizens wrongfully invading our State’s rights and usurping police powers away from our State officials.

Governors have the authority and the duty to defend the citizens of their State Republics and to execute State laws to protect the innocent.  The County Sheriffs also have the authority and the duty to protect the citizens of their respective Counties and to arrest violators of the State Law.

When Corrupt and dangerous Federal officials or judges make judgments or pass laws that are in violation of either the Federal Constitution or the State Constitution and then invade that State with the intent of enforcing their unlawful and egotistical will upon the citizens of that State, it is the duty of the local Sheriff to prevent such invasion  and illegal action against the citizens he has sworn to protect.

(Remember the Federal slaughter of the Davidians in Waco, Texas and the Federal removal of the Ten Commandments monument at the Alabama Supreme Court building.)  Neither event should have been allowed by the Sheriffs and State officials  of  Texas and  Alabama  respectively.

In such cases the Sheriff should order such wrongful  officials and/or agents or marshals to cease and desist and to depart from his County.  That failing, he should arrest the offending invaders.  If additional force is needed,  the Sheriff can deputize local citizens and militia for assistance.  He may also call upon the Governor for assistance, who by all rights, should send State police to work under the direction of that Sheriff.

In such situations,  the State Legislature should pass an emergency Bill of Nullification authorizing the use of the necessary force to repel the invasion; foreign or Federal.  The Governor should sign and enforce such emergency bill. If no bill is offered the Governor could still issue an executive order of nullification of any such illegal edicts against his State or citizens.  Correct thinking officials must be elected if the people are to be protected and remain free from governmental tyranny. Political action is needed.

Governors and Sheriffs refusing to protect their people must be removed from office as being either scalawags or cowards unfit to serve the people.  The States have rights. See drafts of suggested nullificationdocuments at www.FederationofStates.org  in the article entitled:

Suggested Nullification Orders for Governors and Bills to Nullify for Legislatures of Unconstitutional Judicial Orders.

The Militia of Washington County  maintains that it and its citizen members may own military weapons and fully automatic machine guns without the need of registration and/or  regulation  by the Federal Government since that they operate under the Arkansas Constitution.

The Six check and balances provided by our forefathers in the Constitution are:

1.    The Executive Branch under the President

2.   The Judicial Branch (Courts) under a Chief Justice

3.  The Legislative Branch with Congress having a Speaker of the House and the Senate presided over by the Vice President.

The Congress represents the people directly from their districts while the Senate represents the States under State’s rights provisions and were originally elected by the State legislatures.  (Now perverted to be elected by the people, thus seriously infringing upon State’s rights.)

4. The States as sovereign  Republics operating under their own State Constitutions.

5.  Juries of piers meaning under the Magna Carta and early Supreme Court decisions was a jury of local folks who are in the same profession, race and religion as the litigants.  That has been corrupted also today to a jury for the court of diverse  racially equalized people from the local community and not a jury of peers for the litigant who are similar to him or her.

6.   All able bodied men are part of the unorganized civilian militia with ultimate power over the government which they or their forefathers created.  Organized Citizen’s Militia are under the Governor as is the State Guard and the State National Guard.  Sheriffs can deputize local Militia members to serve under their direction in enforcing the law and protecting the citizens.

Our forefathers knew that sometimes the people cannot depend upon a certain leader or even a certain group of leaders because of the corrupting tendency of  power.  Thus, by having the functions of government fractured, outrageous men in one group may be checked by decent men in one of the other groups.

Ultimately, however, the responsibility falls upon individual citizens to protect their own families and their neighborhoods and should not necessarily depend upon others to do this.  If government functions as hoped, then various the governmental groups do their job of providing benefits for the citizens.

But, when they do not do their jobs or when they take unto themselves unrighteous dominion (too much power) and when the other branches of government do not control them, the citizens must take care of the situation by refusing to re-elect, by recall or impeachment or by force from the people themselves.

This use of force should be a last resort and should not be to overthrow a government, but to defend the local people, repair a broken government  and to restore it to proper function.  Freedom is not free and requires commitment and vigilance by the citizens.

WORK FOR THE FUTURE FOR FREE SOUTHERN SKIES

There are tens of millions of folks in the country who are Confederates at heart. There are tens of millions of other folks who would be Confederates at heart if they knew the truth, even in the North. There are tens of thousands of such Confederates that show their colors by doing re-enactments in Confederate uniforms, by going to Confederate Balls and conferences or in reading history. But, when it comes to doing something real for the future, only a few will give their time and/or money. That is sad. Why not?

Firstly, most Confederates barely survive and don’t have much extra money and when they do have a little excess they fall into the old trap of “allowing their expenses will rise to exceed their income.” They begin the endless lure of satisfying their wants rather than being satisfied by securing their basic needs.

Secondly, most Confederates dream of the past, but work and live in the present.

  1. Many will react to NAACP or Morris Dees attacks and go to flag rallies, etc. (this is good of course, but not enough.)
  2. Some will go to “Civil War Re-enactments and camp outs as a fun thing to do by acting and dreaming of the past. (That helps keep some history alive and interests younger folks, but it is still not enough.)
  3. Many will go to meetings of the League of the South or the Sons of Confederate Veterans, United Daughters of the Confederacy, Order of the Rose, Heritage groups, etc. and learn history, have a little association with other confederates and go to Confederate hero commemorations and such. (This is fulfilling as a hobby and also for social contacts and to learn a little history, but still is primarily focused on the past and simply not enough.)
  4. Some will read Confederate books and learn more history. (This study of the past is fulfilling for many, but does little to save our heritage in the future.)

Thirdly, Most Confederates like the past because it is secure and safe. They know the history and the outcome, and enjoy day dreaming of those times and imaging different and better outcomes. But, many of these, when asked to become involved in something real at the present and actually work for the future, shy away and are afraid of the future since it is unknown and the outcome of Confederate actions for the future seem uncertain with possible dangerous outcomes. Some of this group actually fears the Federal Government or for their jobs and have a hard time imagining our being able to really restore our Southern Nation. Mostly they may day dream a bit of what it could be like and stop there. But it is not going to happen by itself.

Benjamin Franklin gave us two quotes that were true in our revolutionary past and that are still true today.

(1) They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

(2) We must hang together, gentlemen…else, we shall most assuredly hang separately.

Yet, among the Confederate minded folks today there are a few valiant men and women who will work to develop the future to restore our Southern Nation in the face of the current Federal U. S. Empire and a South under occupation, de-Christianization, continued reconstruction and subjugation to the serfdom of socialism.

The American Colonists began developing a Confederate Nation in 1774 resulting in the Declaration of Independence of 1776 and the legal establishment of the Confederacy of the United States of America on March 1, 1781. Thomas M’Kean was elected as the first U. S. President. They did this in the face of the British Empire, defying the most powerful empire in the world at that time.

This, to the majority in those days, seemed insane and surely doomed to catastrophic failure. In that case WAR with the BRITISH EMPIRE was the result of the Declaration of Independence. (See the movie “The Patriot” for an excellent generally accurate historical account of that war.)

But, amazingly, American Confederate troops under General Washington with the substantial military participation from the French finally defeated Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown, Virginia in 1781 and the independence of our Colonial Confederacy was assured.

Are you afraid of the U. S. Government today? Most folks are and with good reason. Yet, is freedom and liberty worth anything to you? If not, you, your children and grandchildren deserve the slavery they are progressively being placed under and that you are allowing to happen to them.

The taxation of your personal income is involuntary servitude (slavery) and the ever increasing regulatory harassment from our Socialistic/Fascist Government is steadily tightening the chains under the direction of super-rich old line royal families and international banking empires.

The rights we used to have and cherish have now become non-existent or otherwise turned into privileges that our government may allow us, on certain occasions, to have. This is most obvious with the process seen in our judicial system today where such privileges are occasionally allowed to give the perception of rights and to furnish a cover for freedoms lost. (The “Patriot Act” hastened our enslavement even more.)

By the way, in the last decade we observed the second most powerful Empire in the world fail to attack the Ukraine and Georgia when they seceded from the U.S.S.R. Why didn’t the awesome Soviet Military crush those independence movements?

Because the Ukraine and Georgia had two many heavily armed divisions including thousands of tanks and hundreds of MIG jet fighters and because of economic weakness in the U.S.S.R. which was running many months behind on pay to their own military men. Russia decided that negotiations for peaceful coexistence was the only sane solution.

In America, more than 2/3rds of the U. S. Military comes from the South and many Southern State National Guard units on loan by the Governors of their respective States to the Federal Union of the United States have fought in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Our goal today is the Restoration of the CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA through peaceful political means. I know that sounds ridiculous and downright dangerous. However, it is actually feasible when you know of our legal and peaceful plan and without such a restoration the danger to us all is even greater and more certain.

Political, economic and cival collapse of the whole nation is at hand regardless of whether we are involved or not. If we are involved, we can help stabilize the collapse and restore order through the restoration of our Southern Nation.

Those few who hope to see their families live under Free Southern Skies are among the 300 we are trying to enlist and train. We call these the Gideon 300. These are the men who will take the time and boldness to be a County Chairman of the SIP of Texas or of the other 13-18 States we are currently organizing Southern Independence Parties (SIP’s).

Really, that only amounts to 17- 23 key men or women per State. Yet, that produces the necessary grass roots nucleus around which party machinery can effectively be developed. Of course, to really have much chance in State elections, we need to develop county chairmen in the majority of the counties which comes naturally after the State nucleus is formed.

Notice, you would be quite surprised to see the results of elections when the candidate who is independent decides to run on a truly confederate platform. Such people who otherwise might gain 30,000 votes as an independent, could expect 300,000 – 500,000 votes as confederate independents. Large numbers of Southern folks are sick of the same old Democratic/Republican highly televised and rehearsed garbage.

State SIP’s are being organized under the supervision of the Federation of States which is run by a council of State SIP Chairmen in true State’s Rights fashion. A State Organizer is assigned and the process of signing up and training County Chairmen is initiated.

There needs to be 17 or 23 county chairmen supporting an Executive Committee as a reasonable beginning political machine for each State. A State Executive Committee is formed of at least three people. A State executive Committee Chairman, Vice Chairman and a Secretary/Treasurer ultimately will be elected by holding a State Convention of the county chairmen. The other States will help where they can through the Federation.

Many who are working to survive in the present, when asked to dream of and work for the future, back away leaving only the most valiant and far sighted men and women who are willing to sacrifice and help us build the political machine of State parties.

Such a political machine can actually get a few representatives in State legislatures elected as well as a few County Commissioners, Sheriffs and Mayors which would put us in the position of being able to stop the anti-Confederate anti-Christian attacks in their tracks. Of course, even the valiant sometimes have to reduce their political activity once in a while due to economics.

But, we are grateful for all Confederate minded folks and for whatever their contribution may be for as long as they are able. To win we must have activists for the future who will responsibly execute the plan and have the perseverance to see it through.

The real goal is the Restoration of the Confederate States of America as a free and independent nation minus the IRS, the Federal Reserve, the United Nations and the alphabet soup Federal agencies running amuck in the land, eating out our sustenance and generally harassing our people while producing nothing.

First and foremost is the elimination of the Federal District Court System which aught to be done by the U.S. Congress even before our restoration occurs. Regardless of the U.S. Congress however, such removal from the Confederacy certainly and forcibly will occur immediately after restoration.

The Confederacy will have no need for U. S. Marshals, FBI, etc. They belong in the United States where those folks can keep the IRS and the Federal Reserve and the United Nations if they wish.

It is clear that movements to reform the Federal Union of the U.S. are futile lost causes! Such has been tried valiantly for many decades and has resulted in little else than wasted effort and money in exchange for a few minor gains while the evil empire continues to gain against us on many other fronts.

NO FREEDOM LEFT BEHIND

Well, I never have been in favor of the politically correct “Outcome Based Education”, and the leftist agenda that is part and parcel to it. As a matter of fact, I’ve been known to raise quite a stink about it. So, when I heard of this new education plan called “No Child Left Behind”, (current buzz word of all sorts of bureaucrats, from Bush right on down) I just assumed it was more “OBE” nonsense, and shook my head in disgust.

On the surface, it “sounds” like something fairly noble…I guess that should have tipped us off, there’s nothing noble about the u.S government anymore. I really didn’t think about it too much, until last Saturday. When I discovered it is even more disgusting than I had thought.

I went to a meeting of a political action group Saturday, a gentleman there had obtained a copy of the proposed legislation, and buried within this trash bill, is probably the most oppressive, sweeping and absolute gun control ever contemplated. It would require EVERY gun owner to be licensedEVERY gun to be test fired and a ballistics profile created, it would limit the maximum magazine capacity to 5 rounds! It goes on to provide many millions of dollars for local anti-gun campaigns across the land, and on and on!

All of this hidden deep within an “Education Bill”, obviously designed to fly through Congress “under the radar”, and be signed into law before the people ever knew what hit them. Much like the so-called “Patriot Act”, where congress votes on a bill, without ever knowing what it is they are voting for.

Folks, this is real serious, we need to let people know that they need to contact their congressmen and tell them “We don’t need it, and we won’t have it!” Call, write and email your congressmen, president, newspaper, talk radio show and anyone else you can think of to complain and spread the word. They have gone too far!

They should call it “NO FREEDOM LEFT BEHIND”

CALL TO ACTION!

“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”

ABOLISH THE FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT SYSTEM!

From the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE of July 4, 1776 our fore fathers proscribed for us the following:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal before the Laws of God, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, equal standing before the law and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it. When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government (or oppressive tyranny). See the Ninth Amendment.

AMENDMENT IX. To the Constitution of the United States provides:

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. [The Right of Abolishment belongs to the people from the Declaration of Independence]

We, the People of the several States, do not call for the abolishment of our general government, the United States of America, given to us by our founding fathers following the Declaration of Independence, but rather it is our right and our duty to abolish portions of our government which have been the principle instruments of oppression of our People and harassment of our States, namely the Federal District Court System and the entourage of Federal agents existing with such districts.

This corrupt and unconstitutional tyranny of the Courts has for many decades operated uncontrolled against our People and their fore fathers and their most cherished institutions and beliefs. While the stationing of 91 federal District Courts in our States has statutory sanction, there is still no Constitutional authority for the operation of Federal (U.S. ) District Courts within our various States, north or south, east or west. In fact the Constitution not only gives these rights to the States in the Tenth Amendment, it forbids the Federal Judiciary the jurisdiction to operate within our States in the Eleventh Amendment.

AMENDMENT X. to the Constitution of the United States provides as follows:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. (Article I, Section 8 of the U. S. Constitution enumerates those powers delegated to Congress).

AMENDMENT XI. to the Constitution of the United States provides as follows:

The Judicial power of the united States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.

Generally, the history of the present Federal Government of the United States has proven that the Government of the United States is following in the historical footsteps of the King of Great Britain. The history of tyranny of the British Crown was a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny.

So has it been repeated by the abuses and usurpations by the United States in the mid 1800s and then in reconstruction as well as economic and military occupation over these Southern States, and for that matter, even over the Northern States with the goal of subjecting them all to slavery under an even greater and more sinister tyranny, The New World Order, an Evil Empire controlled by the elite billionaire families of the world for their own benefit.

To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world, much of which finds itself also menaced by the same threat. These billionaire powers acting behind and through the framework of the United Nations and the United States have stripped the people of their rights and freedom.

They have refused their Assent to Laws the most wholesome and necessary for the public good enacting quasi legislation through the Supreme Court to strip the rights of the family and the local neighborhoods in order to destroy family and cultural heritage values as enforced by the Oppressors, the unconstitutional Federal District Court system with their entourage of federal prosecutors, armed federal marshals and various groups of agents and tax collectors.

They have forbidden our children to pray in school, but have encouraged the teachings of alien atheistic ideas and homosexuality. They have restricted our teachers from even having Bibles in their classrooms and now are removing the Ten Commandments from all public places. They have attempted to define what is religion and what is not, thus passing or enforcing supposed laws opposing religion while denying the people free exercise thereof.

They have forbidden the Governors of the various States to act to protect their people from illegal and unnecessary attacks ordered by these unconstitutional federal District Courts resulting in the slaughter of our people by armed Federal Agents and the Military.

They have refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only under the guise of civil rights redistricting..

They have obstructed the Administration of Justice, by usurping the jurisdiction and authority of State Courts of the people by the creation of more and more Federal Courts, of both Administrative and Judicial nature.

They have made Judges dependent on their Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the count and payment of their salaries so that they must work closely with their Federal district prosecutorial masters of the executive branch of government.

They have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers and Agents to harass our People, and eat out their substance.

They have affected to render the Military independent of, and superior to, the Civil Power using the excuse of unconstitutional “Executive Orders”. Furthermore, the internationalists are trying to accustom us to the removal of our military from control of our nation and place it under the direct control of an international body that is seeking world taxing authority.

They have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws in the United Nations; giving their Assent to their acts of pretended Legislation:

For cutting off our fair Trade with all parts of the world and substituting a World Trade Organization designed to protect the cartels of the billionaires to the detriment of our union working men and women.

For imposing federal income taxes on us without our Consent. (Not supported in accordance with Title 26 U.S.C.)(To ratify the 16th Amendment would have required 36 States; only two States successfully ratified that Amendment, thus it is invalid. But even if it had been ratified, it failed to state who would be taxed.)(The Constitution does not authorize the taxation of the income or labor of individuals, but only direct taxation to the States.)

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury and/or by allowing the Federal District prosecutors (U. S. Attorneys) to control the Grand Juries.

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our State Governments by imposing State Constitutions meeting Federal approval, and controlling our States also through bribery from the public purse.

For suspending our own Legislature, and declaring themselves invested with Power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever during “Executive Order Emergency Management”.

They have burnt our towns and Churches and destroyed the lives of our people and are systematically stripping them of their arms and property by unconstitutional laws, restrictions and outright confiscation.

They have corrupted our fellow Citizens with training and money to bare Arms against their own people, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

They have excited domestic insurrections amongst us by allowing tax exempt organizations to fund mass demonstrations against the better interests of the majority, and have endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, an invasion of illegal alien workers who increase the tax burdens of our people supporting welfare and taking away jobs and voting control from our people at the same time.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned countless times over countless issues for Redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury and/or temporary political fixes.

We have appealed to our government’s agents, judges, and representatives for their native justice and conscience, but the ties of political party corruptions and financial payoffs have ruled the day with the bureaucrats and legislatures which we have attempted to send, many of whom have gone on to represent private interests by outright vote fraud and therefore they have continued to do the bidding of their money masters and have been deaf to the voice of the majority of the people for justice and respect for their heritage.

Should Congress fail to act swiftly to Abolish the Federal District Court system, the people will be obliged to call a Constitutional Convention to rectify our out of control government and to avoid and circumvent possible rash action on the part of a few.

Therefore, we, the people of our several States, north, south, east and west, do now petition the Congress of the United States to pass a Bill of Abolishment of the entire Federal District Court System including the associated Federal Agencies, Departments, Services, Commissions and Bureaus operating in our States through the illegal enforcement orders of the unconstitutional U.S. District Courts. The Bill should be entitled “Bill of Abolishment”.

RECALL TIME IN ALABAMA

Over 4,000 people gather to prevent removal of the monument of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Supreme Court Building

Should the Federal government be allowed to designate approved Ministers who may claim Freedom of Religion? Would the next step be, for the Federal Government to designate approved Religions or Churches who would be allowed Freedom of Religion? Would the next step be for the Federal Government to define what is and is not “religion”?

Guess what? They have already done all of this. A notable recent outrage was a Federal Court declaring the Pledge of Allegiance unconstitutional because of the phrase, inserted by President Eisenhower, “under God”. The next, and even more horrendous Federal Court error was the ruling by U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson that the display of the stone monument of the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the Alabama Supreme Court building was unconstitutional and the monument of the Ten Commandments had to be removed. An additional outrage of the Federal Court system is from U. S. District Judge Jones in Southern California ruling that the Boy Scouts of America is a religious organization.

Would you not think that Anti-Religionists are a Religion fighting religion, or anyone’s interpretation of religion or practice of religion or references to God including prayer in public (government places)? We notice that the Anti-Religionists never complain against the religion of Science, especially not against the religion of Darwinist Evolution.

The people in religious organizations can play this religious designation game too, but with supposed impunity, since the government (Courts) are Constitutionally constrained from that realm of religious arguments. The public, as a whole, theoretically has the final say in recall elections and in constitutional amendments.
Many, including the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, are adamantly stating:

“Enough is Enough”
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE REVISITED

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America:

Our Congress, July 4, 1776, signed the unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America which began:

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The Constitution of the United States was an amendment to the Articles of Confederation, that were amended by the Congress of the Confederacy of the United States of America on September 17, 1787, with the historic signing of the amendments called the Constitution of the United States. Their signatures are found at the end of ARTICLE VII stating:

DONE in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven . . .

Even prior to those events, in 1774, look at what was voted for and happened in Congress:

A Constant Reminder That America Was Born With a Prayer and Founded as a Nation “UNDER GOD”.

September 7, 1774. Carpenter’s Hall – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — When the Congress first met, Mr. Cushing (also representing Massachusetts) made a Motion, that it should be opened with prayer.” “Mr. Peyton Randolph, our President, requested the prayer for the following morning from an Episcopal clergyman, Mr. Duche

THE PRAYER
 

Lord, our Heavenly Father, High and Mighty King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers on earth; and reignest with power supreme and uncontrolled over all the Kingdoms, Empires and Governments; look down in mercy we beseech Thee, on these American States, who have fled to Thee from the rod of the oppressor, and thrown themselves on Thy gracious protection, desiring henceforth to be dependent only on Thee; to Thee, they have appealed for the righteousness of their cause; to Thee do they now look up for that countenance and support which Thou alone canst give; take them therefore Heavenly Father, under Thy nurturing care; give them wisdom in Council and valor in the field; defeat the malicious designs of our cruel adversaries; convince them of the unrighteousness of their cause; and if they persist in their sanguinary purpose, O, let the voice of Thy own unerring justice, sounding in their hearts, constrain them to drop the weapons of war from their unnerved hands in the day of battle!

Be Thou present, O God of wisdom, and direct the councils of this honorable assembly; enable them to settle things on the best and surest foundation, that the scene of blood may be speedily closed; that order, harmony and peace may be effectually restored, and truth and justice, religion and piety prevail and flourish among Thy people.

Preserve the health of their bodies and vigor of their minds; shower down on them and the millions they here represent, such temporal blessings as Thou seest expedient for them in this world, and crown them with everlasting glory in the world to come.

All this we ask in the name and through the merits of Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Our Savior. Amen.

The above proceedings and prayer were recorded in a letter from John Adams to his wife as he signed off:

“I long to see my dear family. God Bless, preserve and prosper it. Adieu. John Adams.”

Don’t these conspirators in the ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center and America United for Separation of Church and State and the Federal agents such as U. S. Attorneys and Federal District Judges know anything? Don’t they know that the front facade of the United States Supreme Court building has a picture of Moses carved in stone holding the tablets containing the Ten Commandments and that each door of entry around the Supreme Court building is made of heavy oak with the Ten Commandments carved into the face of the doors. Must all of this be removed because it is furthering a religion? What fools are those proposing this insanity?

Clearly, the Supreme Court, at least, knows what other nations, long before the United States, knew which is that the Ten Commandments and the Statutes and Judgment based upon the civil and criminal rights and prohibitions founded thereon formed the basis for civil and criminal law for the nations of Europe, much of Asia and large parts of Africa for thousands of years.

Now, certain highly confused and brainwashed black robed judges don’t know that the basis for our law is the Ten Commandments. Can you imagine that we have such people dictating our lives and property over us who are too stupid to see the difference? Surely, these idiots must be removed from the bench and from prosecutorial positions and, We the People can surely accomplish this.

How dare a black robed United States District Judge order the Ten Commandments removed from a State Supreme Court building, claiming separation of Church and State as the excuse. How dare U. S. District Judge Myron Thompson attempt to order the Supreme Court of Alabama, an independent State, to obey Federal Court orders where the Federal Court has no Jurisdiction outside of the District of Columbia or under the interstate commerce excuse.

This order by the Federal District Court, by Judge Myron Thompson, should be the final blow against the existence of the present tyrannical Federal District Court system. The real issue here is FEDERAL ABUSE OF POWER vs. STATES RIGHTS. However, the issue of the separation of Church and State is a secondary issue, which is in the headlights of the press and public scrutiny.

Addressing the issue that is before the public today of the removal of the monument of the Ten Commandments, it is clear that the atheists and other anti-founding father’s groups who have banned together into three main groups, namely the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Americans United for Separation of Church and State and have filed various lawsuits and have deliberately perverted the meaning, as well as the founding father’s intent, in the First Amendment to meanings never intended.

The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States provides that:

Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

1.    In 1787, at the time of the signing of the Constitution, the States were sovereign and independent States working together under a successful Confederation, under which they had won their independence from the King of England. The idea of being ruled by a super state, such as Washington, D.C., was a feared and repugnant consideration among these founders who greatly distrusted Kings and centralized Federal power. The creation of a “nationalist super state” was not the intent of the vast majority of those founding fathers.

2.    Thomas Jefferson, who penned the Declaration of Independence and had much influence upon James Madison’s writing of the Bill of Rights which was passed by Congress as part of the Constitution and ratified by the States, made it clear that the First Amendment was no prohibition against religion, but an estoppel against government from interfering with religion or Churches. Jefferson considered this a one way door allowing independence for and free exercise of religion, but stopping government interference. However, Jefferson also provided that Congress would not pass any law respecting an establishment of religion.

In a call to action, Jefferson exclaims that unless the people put off the shackles which bind them and abolish any laws inhibiting religious freedom, the state of religious freedom in this country will only decline until “our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.” Jefferson’s Notes on Virginia, Query XVII, 1782

It is of great interest to note that in the ensuing years since this Amendment was ratified that in the wording of the First Amendment, the third of the first twelve Amendment proposals, that in the true bill submitted to the states for ratification “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, . . . ” , not ” . . . an establishment of religion, . . . “ The word “THE” is definitely more “declaratory and restrictive” than “AN”.

This fraudulent deception has allowed misconstruction of a very explicit restriction on the legislatures and the government. This changed wording appears in virtually all presentations of the 1st Amendment today, including the official NARA presentation. It was correctly presented in history books prior to the Civil War. The correct wording as presented to the States for ratification is shown in the original “True Bill”. There are also records of the several States in their discussion of the first twelve Amendment proposals. For example:

In New Hampshire’s Ratification Document with their Amendment Recommendations, they list as one of the recommendations: “CONGRESS shall make no laws touching Religion or to infringe the rights of Conscience.”

3.    The founding fathers were overwhelmingly of Christian culture and heritage as was the American public. Even today we are a predominantly Christian nation and not a nation expressing a predominant religious heritage of Moslem, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Shintoist, Agnostic, Humanist, Odinistic, Atheistic, Satanic nor any other heritage other than predominantly Christian heritage and social culture. Of course, small segments of these lesser religions do exist in the United States and with Constitutional protections as well.

This is not to name a church or a denomination per se, but a culture of the people who founded this nation and who fought for its independence and who framed the Constitution thereof. In the 1892 Supreme Court decision of Holy Trinity vs. The United States, the court in its majority opinion cited 88 historical reasons why the United States was a Christian nation. (It should be noted that the Christian, Moslem and Jewish religions all recognize the Ten Commandments also called the Decalog of Moses found in the Old Testament (Pentateuch), Torah or the Koran as being the foundation of civil law, the violation of many of those statutes bringing civil or criminal penalties.

4.    The false and erroneous term “Separation of Church and State” is a corruption of the actual First Amendment. None of the words, “Church”, State” nor “Separation” exist in the amendment. By fraudulently substituting the phrase “Separation of Church and State” for the actual amendment, clever attorneys have been able to argue their cases and trick juries and judges to establish case law precedence based upon a false and fraudulent premise.

Arguments using the phrase “Separation of Church and State” which is erroneous and not part of the Constitution, nor amendments thereto, do not establish subject matter jurisdiction for the Court in the present Ten Commandments case against Judge Roy Moore, and the fraudulent representation of this phrase as part of the First Amendment should be actionable under Federal Criminal Statutes.

The actual amendment states: “Congress shall make no law [touching religion] respecting the establishment of religion,” [The intent and meaning of this is that Congress shall pass no law creating a State Religion . . . no law favoring establishment of some particular religion . . . and no law involving (or touching) an existing religion or (religious symbols or objects or statements). If Congress is restricted, the Courts are restricted as well since they are not authorized to write or pass laws. The President is restricted because he is not authorized to pass laws but to enforce or carry out laws passed by Congress.] [New Hampshire’s recommended amendment read: “CONGRESS shall make no laws touching Religion or to infringe the rights of Conscience].”

“or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” [this means that Congress may not pass a law restricting or prohibiting the free exercise of religion. . .thus neither may the courts nor the executive branch (President) restrict or prohibit the free exercise of religion.]

5.    The Ten Commandments are not a religion nor is a monument of the Ten Commandments a religion or a religious object, but instead a set of Civil laws given for a Constitution of a nation headed by Moses thousands of years ago. Upon the general constitution; Bill of Rights and Prohibitions found in the Ten Commandments (also called the Decalog of Moses) were founded Civil and Criminal Statutes and Judgments for the operation of the Nation of Israel of old. Religion, in those days, amounted to a series of sacrifices and ordinances required of the people of that religion.

The people living in Israel of old were predominantly of the same religion, that being a religion of Abraham, which was also encouraged by Moses. To claim that the Bill of Rights and Prohibitions (Ten Commandments) in those days was a religion is like claiming that our modern day Bill of Rights is a religion. In the Old Testament we find a history of a people and a nation with their trials, tribulations, wars, etc. Is history a religion?

Death sentences in those days were not issued for failure to go to the Synagogue (Church) or to make certain sacrifices of doves or lambs to the Priests, but rather for the violation of Criminal law statutes heralding from the Ten commandments(Bill of Rights and Prohibitions). Moses claimed those provisions were given to him by God.

The 1st Commandment alleges to be from God and establishes His credentials.

The 2nd Commandment establishes God expects from His people Israel.

Does that make the Ten Commandments a religion?

Most of our founding fathers believed that wisdom was given by God to help them gain independence and form a Constitution which started with the Declaration of Independence. Both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution mentions God the Lord. Does that make those documents a religion not to be allowed on government or public property? Which department of Government thinks they have the authority to define religion as to what is and what is not?

We should petition and demand a statement by the each head of our Departments of Government President, namely: the Speaker of the House, the President of the Senate and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court that they; 1. Have authority to define religion. 2. That they do not have authority to define religion. Perhaps we should demand answers from the various political candidates as to whether they believe government has the right to define religion. Then we can know who is not suitable to elect or re-elect.

A writ of Mandamus should be brought against the U. S. Attorney in Alabama requiring him to prosecute those guilty of the above crimes, namely the ACLU, the SPLC and the AUSCS, especially for defrauding U.S. District Court Judge Myron Thompson with false arguments causing him to commit crimes as well.

U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson is the one who ordered the Ten Commandments monument removed from the State Supreme Court building in Alabama. How dare him do such a thing. On at least three counts has he erred, producing the irrevocable grounds for his removal from the bench.

1. Ridiculously erring and falling prey to the lies and fraudulent arguments of the counsel of the Anti-American, Anti Religion coalition against the foundation of our law and has thus misinterpreted the First Amendment,

2. on the grounds that Judge Thompson’s order violates U.S. Constitution, Art. 6., Sec. 3.- “no religious test shall ever be required” and

3. on the grounds that the Federal Court has no jurisdiction over the matter in a sovereign State where no interstate commerce issues are involved.

U.S. Constitution, AMENDMENT X.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Because of his violation of the Civil Rights of Chief Justice Roy Moore of his freedom of speech and belief, U. S. District Judge Myron Thompson has lost his immunity and may be sued civilly for damages and defamation. Judge Thompson could be in violation of U.S.C. 18 Section 241 – Conspiracy against rights, a ten year felony. Conspiring parties, namely the American Civil Liberties Union, Southern Poverty Law Center and the American United For Separation of Church and State, could be liable as well for these civil and criminal Civil Rights violations.

Moreover, because Judge Thompson presumed to issue Federal Court orders against the State Supreme Court of Alabama without jurisdiction over the State of Alabama, his orders are unlawful, moot and void and should not be obeyed by Chief Justice Roy Moore. The other eight associate justices of the Alabama Supreme Court have seriously erred in cowardly jumping to obey the illegal Federal order and should be immediately recalled by the people of Alabama.

This issue transcends party politics whether Republican or Democrat and must bring all true Americans together to put an end to this outrage and tyranny of the U.S. District Courts. Because these Federal Courts have allowed a long train of abuses and usurpations, they have invoked the next phrase of the Declaration of Independence which states:

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

 

Recall eight confused judges
by Ron Anderson
It’s time for Alabamians to start a recall campaign for eight confused associate justices of their state Supreme Court. They are committing treachery against the state of Alabama and against her Creator [in their decision on the Ten Commandments].

Section 1 of the Alabama Constitution asserts that all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights;”

Section 3 declares that “no religion shall be established by law; that no preference shall be given by law to any religious sect …” [The Ten Commandments are not a religious sect, but the civil law of ancient Israel].

Acknowledging the Old Testament consensus of the identity of that Creator and His requirements of all Alabamians is not the same as the establishment of a state religious sect. It is essential to her survival (as a Sovereign State), ensuring that said Creator does not rescind what He endowed – the grafted vine, as He did to the natural branches in Jeremiah’s era. (End of Anderson’s Internet Article)
