Chapters 3 and 4
This posting is Chapters 3 and 4 of the 46 Chapters in The Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution: is the Historical Fact that Christianity (see the link at the end) is the root of our American Heritage and a key factor in the inspiration of the Revolution. Good governance is God’s governance and the Citizenry during the Founding era understood this. Those that were Chaplains and Clergy were not just religious mouth pieces. NO, They were warrior Patriots that spoke – first the Word of God and then the musket or sword.
At the end of this posting and future postings we will include the Table of Contents to the book with the links back to the previous Chapters already recorded.
Please share with Family and especially with your Pastors and Church leaders.
Boston – Thursday:
“In Boston the excitement was intense, and the whole city was quickly in a blaze of resentment. At the first opportunity the determined hostility to the act broke forth. What would normally be an occasion of celebration, political figures are found hanging in effigy from city center trees and from the top of which peeped forth a head with horns, intended to personify the Devil. The authorities did not attempt to remove the effigies, for, in the excited state of the popular mind, it was difficult to say how far the rage of the people, might lead them.
The Organizers, with whom the proceedings, originated, kept the matter somewhat in hand, and at evening cut the figures down and carried them in procession through the city, processioned on a bier. The multitude moved in perfect order, and their route was lined with people. They passed through the historic Old State house and under the council-chamber, where the key city politicians happened to be gathered. “Liberty, property, and new taxes”! were shouted at the ears of the listening dignitaries. The Organizers were preceded by some four or five thousand business and tradesmen, decently dressed and the whole body marched to State Street, where they demolished a structure which they believed the federal government was building as an office for the new tyranny being pushed by despotic leadership. Then they proceeded to Fort Hill (Roxbury), where key government officials reside, and with fragments of the frame which they brought with them, built a bonfire in which the effigies were consumed.

Issues! Conspiracy! Scandals! Deceptions! Collusion’s! Immigration!
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
The emotionalism of every media outlet screams of a lack of integrity in government. We are seeing the exposure of the infidelity of those who are not only in elected positions but those in local, state and national positions of bureaucracy. And the infidelity that I am referring to is that of oath keeping – keeping ones oath to serve under the framework of Constitutionalism. Let’s begin by thinking of Foundational Principles, which aren’t taught any longer:
A good government implies two things: first, fidelity to the object of government, which is the happiness of the people; secondly, a knowledge of the means by which that object can be best attained. Some governments are deficient in both these qualities; most governments are deficient in the first. I scruple (definition: a feeling of doubt or hesitation with regard to the morality or propriety of a course of action:) not to assert that in American governments too little attention has been paid to the last.
James Madison, Federalist # 62
Let me begin by commenting that I’m froth over the media of all denominations for doing what they do best – drive emotions to levels of irrational beliefs and behaviors. I concede that the progressive – socialists – globalists are the best at it since they are extraordinaire in their use of Hegelian Dialectics (simply word and definition manipulation) such that truth does not matter nor does our Foundational Principles have any relevance for the present.
With that noted, we are now experiencing the three primary characteristics that have and are contributors to this infidelity being: subverted education system, lost national morality and virtue, and finally – the true definition of patriotism as intended.
