Today I am joined by Adam Retych who is a researcher in educational policy. He has been focused on SEL: Social and Emotional Learning. First of all, SEL is a critical topic that, once again, is leading the way for the ‘state’ or ‘statism’ to determine the uniformity of social and emotional norms for all. Adam and I discuss what this insidiousness called SEL is. While the definition and standards sound good, the discerning ear can cut to the chase of the destructive influence this system will have in the long run. Adam’s research is extensive in particular to Ohio yet this is certainly impacting over twenty of the States in the nation who have it fully implemented.
Contact me if you would to get more information via Adam. The key references regarding SEL are in the References section below.
Bribed With Your Own Money – Melancton Smith Continued:
This week is simple: In the first segment I give a quick update from the founders perspective on the Supreme Court Nomination and the hellacious noises from the Court steps to the main stream media. The last two segments are regarding ‘What’ Sam Adams had to say about voting and how we should vet candidates as well as develop future leaders through morality in education. He said this: “As Piety, Religion and Morality have a happy influence on the minds of men, in their public as well as private transactions, you will not think it unseasonable, although I have frequently done it, to bring to your remembrance the great importance of encouraging our University, town schools, and other seminaries of education, that our children and youth while they are engaged in the pursuit of useful science, may have their minds impressed with a strong sense of the duties they owe to their God, their instructors and each other, so that when they arrive to a state of manhood, and take a part in any public transactions, their hearts having been deeply impressed in the course of their education with the moral feelings—such feelings may continue and have their due weight through the whole of their future lives.”
References for today are the four volumes of Sam Adams writings:
Through all the blast of the media and the rhetoric of Congress to the standing on solid ground of a partially staffed Administration – not a single soul is talking about what the realities of fact and truth are in functional governance – under actual Constitutionalism.
In preparing for my radio program it became evident again that the emotionalism of all the media completely distorts any ability to get to the heart of the matter – How is our Constitutional Republic Intended to function? Frankly, those in government and even the super self-serving lawyers in Congress don’t understand nor do they want to. They have become so dependent on the donors and lobbyists that they have thrown the concepts of Constitutionalism deep in the sub-basement of the Capital and all the marble bureaucratic buildings in D.C.
How Dare I say this? Simple, I know how to read and reading the Federalist Papers alone gives clear intention (Intent) for how governance should function in the Republic. So before we get to the core issues as indicated by the title let us get one thing very clear: every pundit, talk show host/hostess, politician or bureaucrat that calls this nation a democracy should be heavily chastised, have their ears rung and be thrown out the door for manifesting their ignorance or subversive ideologies. Why? Because we are a Constitutional Republic (period)! If you cannot get that correct then you have no capacity to understand how this nation should function! Continue reading →
Comments Off on Immigration, Invasion, Insurrection and Constitutionalism
Edmund Burke describes what originally Made America Great.
We need to learn from this speech! Yes, I read it because the words are timeless and this proves our ‘Populous’, ‘Religious’ heritage that had England in a turmoil. So too it has the globalists/progressives/communists in a turmoil this very day. What the media including Hannity and others don’t do is Bring back the real facts and truth that will Make America Great Again. It is our Foundational Heritage not just the economy.
This week I am delving back into Ben Rush’s work on the ‘Thoughts Upon the Mode of Education Proper In A Republic’ from the middle. There the perspective of Patriotism and American Culture is discussed. I reference a YouTube video that I really like with Doug Wilson (see the references). I get back to Ben Rush and bring in the hard hits on UNESCO.
President Trump pulled US out of UNESCO again for cultural reasons. Reagan pulled US out for poor management reasons. It was George W. Bush that put us back in. I’m going to introduce you to the two best reads on education and UNESCO there are in the whole library of books on this issue. The bottom line is that we should defund every aspect of UNESCO and completely void all treaty aspects that have US encumbered and slaves to the destruction of every entity under its auspices. Great starting point for getting out of UN since UNESCO has so many tentacles’.
As always, remember: The Founders wanted us to gain knowledge and get involved! Being a Citizen is an Active involvement in our political life! Let’s get our feet on the street for this time is critical!
Join me on Saturday’s program to value the Founders perspective of the mirrors of history and the reality of the present.
Thoughts Upon The Mode Of Education Proper In A Republic
The tragedy in Las Vegas is more easily assessed by admitting that we have degenerated in our educational system; because of a lack of knowledge, we see the results in our intentional move away from Founders Original Intent. As I began last week to talk about Witherspoon as a Founder and educator, this week I begin to discuss the treatise written by the gent that got Witherspoon to come to Princeton.
I’m not going to be long in the promo. Simply the key words are ‘inculcate’, ‘Liberty’, ‘Patriotism’, ‘Christianity’, ‘constitutionalism’ and ‘Republic’. I’m not going to get into the depth of it this week but… the battle of education in truth is not new; it was a battle even in 1786. Hmmm, maybe that is why we saw constitutionalism degenerate by the early 1800’s! I’m inclined to go with what Benjamin Rush has to say for our Republic.
Almost everything that has been going on for the last century has been the ‘battle for truth.’ We have lost perspective our Founder’s Truth and Intent as well as where they sourced Truth. Samuel Adams had a primary source for Truth that I identify today. I also give you more insight to the Samuel Adams Center for Political Science. Here is my email to contact me about SACPS: email@example.com
Next I discuss Montezuma, not the Aztec emperor but the Anti-federalist. His satire on the establishment of the Constitution of 1787 is a clear descriptor of what has been and is happening in Congress today! Yes, the Anti-federalists Got It Right!
Then I tell you why we must have Ob’Ryan care. Yes, just in time for St. Patti’s Day. This is mandated not by what Tom Price or Newt Gingrich are saying about Congressional process. No, the deception is in what most refuse to learn, accept or the politicians talk about – the UN mandates for ‘universal health care.’ Continue reading →
First off, I am hoping that all of those that can will be attending the Trump Rallies today. I talk about those and the issues with one rally in Washington State.
I believe that the Presidents speech to the joint session of Congress was one of the best if not the best I’ve head or read given in that venue. The directional shift back to some semblance of a Constitutional Republic is refreshing. Although I predicted that as the demoncrats would show their evil so to would the ‘establishment swamp monster’ repudicans.
I bring you the refresher course on the entities causing havoc, the subversion of obama shadow government and the Deep State of Homo-Marxian as defined by W. Cleon Skousen.
Lastly I will introduce you to SACPS. The Samuel Adams Center for Political Science in being established to work with ages 12 through graduate school as well as parents support. Continue reading →
Centinel #1, Philip Dru,Kozak, Hydra’s in the Swamp
Forgive some of my diatribe today since I’m still getting over a really tough flu. With that, the simple reality of today’s program is that the Anti-federalists predicted exactly what is going on if we did not maintain a ‘moral and virtuous’ people. As I point out via Philip Dru and Kozak the evil has been making its way to dupe a great number of citizens for over 100 years.
We – Ourselves , and the churches in particular, have allowed this evil to become dominant. I wonder if anyone really cares? The battle is before us much like that of 1772 through 1783. Who will take up the mantle? How will the swamp be drained with such embedded evil? Continue reading →
By most standards of how organizations operate, today is supposed to be a summation of the past year. Not so here. I am letting folks know that Samuel Adams Returns in not a tax exempt organization – so we don’t ask for those last minute donations….. I am talking about the last two weeks relative to what De Tocqueville wrote about concerning what American tyranny and despotism would look like.
More importantly, I talk about the “God Effect” in the leaders of a nation. History proves that the Creator of ALL and Everything has been and continues to be a direct participant in governance and government. Hmm, as I write this, but won’t be in the program, it is clear that the present administration has had sanctions on God for interfering with the elections!
So the legacy of Obama, by any historically correct Constitutionalist will conclude that it, is that of Hegelian Dialectic and exacting despotic tyranny as defined by the Founders of various States and Federal Republic.
Why pick on Harvard? It isn’t just Harvard, we see all over the media that higher education is showing its true color – ‘Red.’ What is occurring in universities across this nation, including so-called Christian higher education, is the promotion of subversive ideology over Founders intent. To that, the fact is that we have had seventy years of socialist/progressive indoctrination in the schools. Follow along in Charlotte Iserbyt’s “The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America: A Chronological Paper Trail” to get a further sense of this topic.
