The Anti-federalists predicted the Constitution of ‘87 would ultimately have Bureaucratic Quagmire.
This week we saw the remembrance of Constitution Day. Well…. Maybe some folks remembered. In the great debates regarding the new form of government sent to Congress and then to the States, a number of discussions focussed on the tendency of mankind to digress morally. This digression would allow for the power elite to be in the legislature but also to establish bloated bureaucracies.
Worse, the arguments of the pseudonym Brutus would reveal the way in which the judiciary would become our present corrupt system.
Understand that “The Office of the Attorney General was created by the Judiciary Act of 1789 (ch. 20, sec. 35, 1 Stat. 73, 92-93), as a one-person part-time position. The Act specified that the Attorney General was to be “learned in the law,” with the duty “to prosecute and conduct all suits in the Supreme Court in which the United States shall be concerned, and to give his advice and opinion upon questions of law when required by the President of the United States, or when requested by the heads of any of the departments, touching any matters that may concern their departments.”
Later, “Officially coming into existence on July 1, 1870, the Department of Justice was empowered to handle all criminal prosecutions and civil suits in which the United States had an interest. To assist the Attorney General, the 1870 Act also created the Office of the Solicitor General, who represents the interests of the United States before the U.S. Supreme Court.” (Same Reference as previous par.)
Therefore, there is a ‘Chain of Command’ within the Department of Justice with the Office of the Attorney General being the head (period). What is the Bureaucratic Quagmire that AG Barr is dealing with? Find out more about this in the References and what I have to say about it on the program.
Government The Pillar Of The Earth
As I have been discussing in other programs regarding Christian Resistance, the foundational premise is that God established and is the head over all government. The bureaucratic quagmire would have less muck in it if there was a clear understanding of Benjamin Colman’s sermon from 1730. He establishes three key points which are no longer paid attention to by our Citizenry let alone those who are suppose to ‘serve’ in government.
These points are:
DOCTRINE: The great God has made the governments and rulers of the Earth its pillars, and has set the world upon them.
1. The governments and rulers of the Earth are its pillars.
2. These pillars of the Earth are the Lord’s.
3. He has set the world upon them.
Rev. Colman elaborates extensively on these points in front of the leading political body of 1730. I strongly assert that these arguments are even more relevant and necessary in our present age. I recommend that each of you read the context of this sermon. It is only ten pages long.
Sam Adams Wisdom
Those who will attack Christianity and the foundational principles of it in governance should be chastised as was Thomas Paine.
TO THOMAS PAINE
[W. V. Wells, Life of Samuel Adams, vol iii , pp 372, 373]
BOSTON, November 30, 1802.
I have frequently with pleasure reflected on your services to my native and your adopted country. Your Common Sense, and your Crisis, unquestionably awakened the public mind, and led the people loudly to call for a declaration of our national independence. I therefore esteemed you as a warm friend to the liberty and lasting welfare of the human race. But when I heard you had turned your mind to a defence of infidelity, I felt myself much astonished and more grieved, that you had attempted a measure so injurious to the feelings and so repugnant to the true interest of so great a part of the citizens of the United States. The people of New England, if you will allow me to use a Scripture phrase, are fast returning to their first love. Will you excite among them the spirit of angry controversy at a time when they are hastening to amity and peace? I am told that some of our newspapers have announced your intention to publish an additional pamphlet upon the principles of your Age of Reason. Do you think that your pen, or the pen of any other man, can unchristianize the mass of our citizens, or have you hopes of converting a few of them to assist you in so bad a cause? We ought to think ourselves happy in the enjoyment of opinion, without the danger of persecution by civil or ecclesiastical law. Our friend, the President of the United States, has been calumniated for his liberal sentiments by men who have attributed that liberality to a latent design to promote the cause of infidelity. This, and all other slanders, have been made without the least shadow of proof. Neither religion nor liberty can long subsist in the tumult of altercation, and amidst the noise and violence of faction. Felix qui cautus. Adieu.
