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!

8-5-17 Consolidated Government Not the Republic You Thought It Was

Consolidated Government Not the Republic You Thought It Was

Continuing to enhance the program on video and then putting the archive segments up on the SamuelAdamsReturns YouTube channel. Videos posted on Sunday.

In preparing for today’s program I was digging in on the Senate from the Anti-federalists perspective when I was surprised by what I’ve previously read. You know how something jumps out as if it is fresh and new. In the Founders Constitutions I was going through the topic of ‘Popular Basis for Government’ and a series of the Anti-federalists hit our present situation of despotic oligarchy right on the head. Simply, The Constitution as it is today and from the beginning is not the idea of a Republic that we think it is. Continue reading

November 1, 2014 – Senate, Treaties and International Executive Agreements

On this broadcast of Samuel Adams Returns – The Anti-federalist Got It Right, ( www.lwrn.net ) I continue the discussion of how the Senate is now a part of democracy and not the Republic to which it was intended. Then I get into a real sore spot, Treaties and International Executive Agreements. De Tocqueville wrote that if tyranny would engross America, it would a ‘soft despotism” that arose through elected administrators. For over 100 years we have been electing administrators over statesmen, socialism entered into this nation since the early 1800’s and infiltrated the core principles of We the People so that most do not have the concept of what Foundational Liberty is about.

 

Hence we have had since the 1930’s International Executive Agreements at a ratio of almost 20:1 over treaties that have established that ‘soft despotism’ and stripped us of our individual and national sovereignty, making us serfs in the globalist dream.

October 25, 2014 S. Adams – Christian Culpability in the 17th Amendment

This program hosted at www.lwrn.net is a continuation of last week.

 

This is a strange and difficult approach to what helped perpetrate the 17th Amendment that virtually destroyed the Framers Intent for a Constitutional Republic.  How did I come up with the idea that the Christian Churches in the 19th and early 20th Centuries contribute to the push for the direct election of the Senator.  The historical perspective of the time is laid out in this program.  This again just touches the tip of the iceberg as we have to take into consideration all that was occurring during this period of history.

 

Ask yourself these questions, and more importantly, get the answers!

1. When did Marx release the communist manifesto?

2. Who was Henry George and what influence did he have not only in the US but in England?

3. What is the social gospel in comparison to the Reformation Gospel of the Founders of America?

 

Those are three questions that will get some thoughts coordinating with today’s program.

 

Enjoy this challenge perspective and consider the solution provided for the restoration of the Republic!

October 11, 2014 S. Adams Program – The Gestation of the Senate

In this program on www.lwrn.net, Tom gets to the historical arguments and gestation of the Senate as a part of the Constitution. He speaks in high speed with almost no breathing to get this highly information packed topic into the 45 minutes of radio time.

 

Tom takes us back as far as the Magna Charta through the time of the Convention of 1787 and some of the ratification debates within the States.

 

To take it all in, you’ll have to catch this more than once with the no-breath high speed talking.
