I have this very Reformation and American Puritan concept of Kingdom, which demands reviewing Profiles In Courage. Now I mention JFK’s book in that he discusses several individuals that stood against the tide of political pressure from their peers.
Making it clear that I am not a classical theologian, understand that I have studied the application of Reformation and Puritan theology in some great detail. To that, Kingdom is a topic that reaches into governance in the present as much as it is a reality when one dies. Understanding who the King of kings is and what that means for living in this world is critical to governing in ones own life, family, community, work and our Constitutional Republic – be that a State or National.
Profiles In Courage
Living according to Reformation – American Puritan concepts like Samuel Adams requires correct understanding of Kingdom and acting with Profiles In Courage. To stand against tyranny in our Republic, the knowledge of such must be rightly taught and inculcated in our youth again. JFK has John Quincy Adams as his first example of this. Do you know who John Quincy Adams is or what he was doing at twelve years old? Consider that our youth today have less of a clue than you and then consider young Mr. Adams position in international affairs at that age.Continue reading →

If it were not for the Evangelical Failure in the pulpits, education and family this case would not have even come to a trial. Thankfully, the presiding judge had the moral instance to allow the Father to have joint custody and medical decision making authority. Thus overriding the Jury decision.Continue reading →

Sam Adams predicts our present governance and political situation. His letter to James Warren stresses that Morality and Virtue ensures Liberty.
Adams defines that this must be a definitive aspect of education. By not inculcating our youth in morality and the mechanisms of virtue we loose the prospects of maintaining Liberty. Continue reading →

The time has arrived once more to do a Theology Comparison of the Founding Era to the Present.
With all that is in the news regarding ‘mass shootings’, ‘climate change’, ‘Antifa’, ‘education’, ‘prison reform’, ‘social issues’ and more; the comparison is such that the US is in the time of the Book of Judges – “everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” Such that the ‘Christians’ in these United States have run away from their responsibilities in governing.Continue reading →

The Law as seen put into practice in our present time needs more than one discussion. The Law: Part 2 is a continuation of the historical and foundational truths regarding the supremacy of law in relationship to everything. No different then the extensibility of the Gospel, the whole law of God is manifested in every aspect of His creation. Yet we learn via the reference noted below from LONANG.COM that our foundational historical context of law degenerated about the same time as the ‘social gospel’ made its rage in America.
I somewhat delve into Federalist No. 37 in this program because Madison, as a student of Dr. Witherspoon, has a clear understanding of the fallen nature of mankind. In No. 37, Madison does more than defend the ‘convention of ’87’. He takes us on that journey that encompasses the ‘Laws Of Nature and Natures God’. He looks at natural science, psychology, authority, communication and human bias.Continue reading →
There is a lot of information that can be broken down very specifically on the topics of Sovereignty, Morality, Liberty and Mayhew. Yet these are all very concrete components of the complete principled positioning of our National Foundation.
When considering the evil that occurred in El Paso and Dayton, these core principles are the missing elements being talked about and considered in the solution to not only El Paso and Dayton but the daily mass-murdering of the unborn.
Sam Adams in Vancouver, Wa. Expounding on the Declaration of Independence
To Kick it off here is a short video of reflection:
The full program video further down.
This weekend and on Monday many are celebrating the TEA Party 10th Anniversary. I am one of the people that was there at the beginning. Well, actually, I was there in 1985 when Citizen groups were disparaged and called radical militia. Hmmm, what about the Sons of Liberty, which I have been since the mid-60’s.
What is important to note for this TEA Party 10th Anniversary is that the philosophy and Foundational ideology of Taxed Enough Already are rooted in Patriotic truth that Sam Adams wrote about in 1748. So the Viability of ‘Citizens taxing’ responses is an issues that has great historical significance. Yet, we saw a lull of the rising star of TEA Party almost immediately after a couple years of national prominence. What are the 2019 Opportunities for the remnant organizations?
What is Conservatism about? The question by a noted pastor/theologian is: Conserving What? Are those who call themselves “Conservatives” looking to return to the past in history? Are they trying to return to the Constitution as it was when established? Are they looking to reformation in the church? Or, are they re-establishing Foundational Principles both Biblically, which is the derivative for social, economic and political continuity?
The American Mount Olympus and Rome is now designated to be in all actuality a valley and a region in the Pacific North West, yes Silicon Valley and the seven hills of Seattle. The deep digital idolized applications of these modern Olympians are preloaded on everyone’s laptops, desktops, tablets and yes, our phones. In a sense, the movie ‘The Matrix’ is revealing the ‘Pods’ sustaining and creating the realities for all connected. Are we truly living the Toffler trilogy that quaked techno-cultural change captured in the leading quote from “Future Shock” being: “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
Is it not ludicrous to ascribe some attributes of mythological deities or laughably the cartoon/movie characters, to business and financial moguls not giving them more credit then they deserve. Is it not the demand of the masses for ‘Free this or that’ that gives rise to the power of these intrepid entrepreneurs? Could it be that the Toffler statement – “Information overload will lead to ‘future shock syndrome’ as an individual will suffer severe physical and mental disturbances.” – be more than a syndrome but now an addiction?
Every time I hear or read in the media that the ‘Masters of the Universe’ are doing this or that, my imagination can envision these moguls of technology and finance playing the games of the Olympian gods on “Jason and the Argonauts” as they search for the Golden Fleece. So our modern story can take the lessons of mythology as a metaphor for the actions of global business oligarchs or it can twist to the social political shift of the masses wanting something for nothing.
Wait, isn’t there another statement to the effect that “There is no free lunch”? The extensibility of that questions rips to the heart of every individual that assumes that the Internet and the content is free! The reality is that every application on the Internet, every system made available to the public is in fact the property of a company. So is an individual’s expectations froth with misguided ideology in that using the likes of a search engine, browser of social media software should be free? Has the “entity in the Matrix pod” developed such a dependency and expectation of their being plugged in to the environment such that all is given freely – while not knowing the tentacles that hold every aspect of their persona for the use and pleasure of the ‘masters’? Isn’t this digital socialism?
Here is the hard fact, that is not thought through because of all of the emotionalism manipulated by those other high seated Olympians in the political temples: Social media and all that lives on the Internet absolutely are ‘For Profit’ Businesses (period)! Hence there is NO FREE LUNCH. Yet the digital ideology of socialism is widely accepted even by so called ‘conservatives’.
How did it happen that even so called Conservatives find themselves in the battle with the Marxists and all in-between to retain the addiction of socialism in social media when otherwise they cry with great tears that free markets must prevail? Are we seeing a conundrum of “Selective Socialism”? It is fine and dandy to get all the technology free-bees over the Internet one can run away with but other than that socialism is not acceptable in our Constitutional Republic – Hmmm!
I have to take U.S. all back to Toffler once again. I know there are many who have no idea who Toffler is. Let it be noted that he was Futurist and a Marxist that somehow redeemed himself into a neo-free market Gingrich Conservative… And Gingrich claimed to be “conservative futurist”. No matter how you look at them, the operative clause in Webster’s Dictionary for ‘futurism’ is: “impose controls”. In the case of Gingrich, he had been a friend with both the Toffler’s since 1970, which allowed for the incorporation of this influence into the “Contract With America”. Yes, before the Olympians in Silicon Valley there were the Futurists in ‘The Swamp’ of DC who in so subtlety determined that Toffler’s ‘Third Wave’ was “the seminal work of our time”. A simple step toward a conclusion here is that leading Republicans and Newt were immersed in the means of blending socialism into the Republic through technology, education and cultural change.
They were and are the intellectual elites that Thomas Sowell writes about.
Accepting socialism in social media, demanding that ‘Free Lunch’ from private profit-driven companies, Conservative lobbyist groups and political groups crying foul when they are sent to the bottom of the time-line feed or thrown off any particular site – What asininities to clamor for equality by businesses that are takers, purchasers of ones identity in exchange for the perception of a right to free speech on systems and software that are as was stated, Private Property of the creators – the Olympians of Silly-cone Valley.
Let me try to bring the analogy of the allegory concerning the comics of “the Masters of the Universe” and “Olympian gods” in the context of the vast majority addicted to socialism via social media.
Long before the triad of the Toffler’s and Gingrich there have been those that look to dominate society by excreting their self-assumed superiority as reminiscent of Caesar, Nebuchadnezzar or the technologist Sennacherib of those really ancient days. But then again, we don’t teach ancient history let alone back to the futurists of the ‘70’s. All of these influencers of intelligentsia had an effect in what the general society would believe even in the political strains of Conservatism.
I can easily conclude that the greater numbers of these Olympian idealists of societal influence and business magnates see themselves as ‘masters of the universe’ forgetting that in fact they are created beings subject to “The Master of All the Universe”. The ultimate question becomes what master and what society do individuals subscribe to? That does not mean what social media application does one login to but what is ones ultimate worldview that establishes expectation that one deserves, no, has a right to something for nothing yet willing to give every aspect of their persona away to private businesses capitalizing on the essence of their being?
In the end of all my technological and business background, with all that I’ve studied and worked for in the social and political environments – The conclusion is “There Ain’t a Free Lunch in this world”. But I do know that there is a Freedom that supersedes technology, the moguls and the Olympians of Silly-cone Valley. I found and live by that freedom found in the great communications environment – The Bible.
Who is Your Master and how do you justify your addiction to socialism instituted in social media?
In the end, If you really believe that you want your privacy and you desire to maintain your Liberty with a right of Free expression on a communications platform, whether it be a news paper add, telephone call, post card, bill board or other media methods – Well, you have to Pay for it! With that in mind, there are alternatives that are out there, which are becoming that mass communications platform that you want. So, you will have to choose: subscribing to a communications platform that meets your worldview or sticking with socialism by not paying with money, instead paying with your identity and persona to corporate platforms that have the mask of Medusa hiding their glaring nefarious ideologies and intent?
A last thought from Toffler:
“ The Second Wave Society is industrial and based on mass production, mass distribution, mass consumption, mass education, mass media, mass recreation, mass entertainment, and weapons of mass destruction. You combine those things with standardization, centralization, concentration, and synchronization, and you wind up with a style of organization we call bureaucracy.”

There has been much to continue to follow in the news especially that which will deal with the realities of corruption. Everyone prefers to hit on emotion and not build on what is critical to making the Republic work as intended. Most are functioning on their basic American DNA. There is more, the root of our national heritage.
What about Loyalty and Sedition? Well, there is more to it than I can even begin to discuss.
