5-12-18 Senate Oligarchy, McConnell and Chao Collusion

Preparing for this program and coming upon the McConnell – Chao collusion set my hair on fire!

The Articles of Confederation were clear that the States are sovereign governing entities. The final arguments about the Senate were that this body would represent the States in the national government. During the ratification debates the Original Intent of maintaining this State sovereignty was paramount. Yet, The Anti-federalists warned that cabal could corrupt the Senate and become an oligarchy if they Senator remained in office for more than two or three terms.

Well, here we are having exactly what the Anti-federalists predicted with an oligarchy in the Senate. Melancton Smith was specific about this in his 1788 Jun 25th argument: “As the clause now stands, there is no doubt that senators will hold their office perpetually; and in this situation they must of necessity lose their dependence, and attachments to the people. It is certainly inconsistent with the established principles of republicanism that the Senate should be a fixed and unchangeable body of men. There should be, then, some constitutional provision against this evil. A rotation I consider as the best possible mode of effecting a remedy. The amendment will not only have a tendency to defeat any plots which may be formed against the liberty and authority of the state governments, but will be the best means to extinguish the factions which often prevail, and which are sometimes so fatal to legislative bodies. This appears to me an important consideration. We have generally found that perpetual bodies have either combined in some scheme of usurpation, or have been torn and distracted with cabals. Both have been the source of misfortunes to the state. Most people acquainted with history will acknowledge these facts. Our Congress would have been a fine field for party spirit to act in. That body would undoubtedly have suffered all the evils of faction, had it not been secured by the rotation established by the Articles of Confederation. I think a rotation in the government is a very important and truly republican institution. All good republicans, I presume to say, will treat it with respect.”

With this in mind, I am hammering home the proven collusion and living example of what Melancton Smith argued – The McConnell / Chao collusion!  Also, a super reference is another great work by Peter Schweizer!

With that, 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!

5-5-18 Melanie Phillips, Dr Schaeffer, Arts of Confederation

Melanie Phillips was at Parkside church this past Monday, 4-30. Forgive me in advance if I don’t pronounce her first name properly. He presentation on Culture and the issues of the day was exceptional. I confess that other than being minus the ultimate resolution of the Gospel for these times, her presentation reminded me of reading Abraham Kuyper or hearing Dr. Francis Schaeffer. Yup, There is Nothing New Under the Sun. See the link to her presentation in the resources section.

The question continues regarding Founders Original Intent for governance and how does it apply to our up coming Primary Elections on May 8? The culture issues that Ms. Phillips speaks in Great Britain are taking on steam in the US. We must resist and fight the evils with Truth, History and yes – Full Biblical Reformation teaching within and outside the churches.

I finish up today with the Articles I and II of the ‘The Article of Confederation’ and some points from Melancton Smith regarding the Senate.

With that, 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!

Video Too and Melancton Smith – Bribed With Your Own Money?

Listen Saturday’s at 9 AM and 7 PM Eastern on www.lwrn.net

Expanding the horizons of technology! We are experimenting with recording the program on video as well and then putting the segments up on the SamuelAdamsReturns Youtube channel.

Melancton Smith Posed the questions: “How, say they, are the people to be corrupted? By their own money?” De Tocqueville stated that: “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.” We have had this happening now for 100 years. Hence – we no longer have a Republic but as ‘constitutional socialist democracy’ in the fantasy cover of a Constitutional Republic. Gee I wonder why the deep state and left hate Trump and all who call for our Founders Original Intent! Continue reading
