9-14-19 Constitution Day: Articles of Confederation, Seminar and Book Launch

Constitution Day

While remembering Constitution Day by considering the up and coming remembrance of the present Constitution, one must understand the first Constitution – the Articles of Confederation. Sam Adams was on the Committee to draft the Articles of Confederation. His clear understanding of historical ‘republican’ systems and Biblical Reformation Liberty were critical inputs into the original structure of the Confederation.

I have chosen to re-run a program from 2018 because I don’t believe that folks, even many who think they have the Constitution figured out, really get what is happening at the National Level was predicted by the Anti-federalists. Why do I believe that? Because the Anti-federalists predicted that if the Pulpits did not continue as the Founding Pulpits, the Constitution of 1787 would lead to the ‘soft tyranny and despotism’ that De Tocqueville later wrote about.

Yes, we are Living the predictions of the Anti-federalists and the analytical writing of De Tocqueville!

Covenant and Constitution

I am promoting sections of my book, “From Covenant To The Present Constitution” in this program. Hmmm…. I still believe that everyone reading this or who listens to the program should get a copy. Heck, since I self-publish, I have to self-promote as well.

From the Original Program Promo

***These paragraphs are from the 2018 program promo.

Is there Original Intent for how our Constitution should be implemented and followed? Absolutely!!! I begin the conversation by starting at the end with a little surprising twist. We will get into this more in May and June. I will have two really good interviews in May as well.

This past Monday I was on the Daria Anne DiGiovanni program. I was a super fun interview. Here is the link to the archive on Samuel Adams Returns Archives in case you missed it.

As promised, I’m finishing off April with more of an overview of my Book “From Covenant To The Present Constitution” and discussing that we are now scheduling for the seminar beginning in June. For a signed copy of the book contact me at tom@samueladamsreturns.com You can buy it on line at the links in the References.

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!

Join me on Saturday’s program to value the Founders perspective of the mirrors of history and the reality of the present.

And because you keep asking!

7-27-19 Constitutional Immigration

Constitutional Immigration in Debates:

The reality that most are ignorant of is that in fact: Constitutional Immigration is a strong consideration in Founder’s Original Intent! Signing the Constitution

There are those who argue that the doors of immigration was opened wide by the Founders of these United States. Well, that is a manipulation of fact and history. This Program brings to the forefront that immigration was a hot topic, not only during the Convention Debates of 1787 but also in the States Ratifying Conventions and in a number of the Anti-federalists Papers.

The concern regarding emigration from the eastern states to the west as well as their term of ‘foreigners’ meaning immigrants arriving, Not assimilating, and then becoming elected, which would then destroy our religion, morality and virtue. During the Convention Debates Pennsylvania was used as an example of this very destruction occurring. Continue reading

3-9-19 George Washington’s Warning and Tory Pastors

Introduction:  Elezar Oswald

George Washington’s Warning of internationalism stresses that our liberties will be lost if we chase after what other countries have instead of holding fast to all that is natural in America. We also look at two Anti-federalists who step us through anarchy. I suggest that in these warnings of the Centinel and Alfred that we can substitute socialism as the root that fosters anarchy.

Lastly, I sat teary eyed in a public place reading and preparing for the video’s of chapters 30 through 33 of the Chaplains and Clergy of the Revolution. It pains me deeply that many modern pastors are ‘Tory Traitors’ by being caught up in their ignorance and out-right refusal to know the truth of Christianity in America.

Pastors at the Foundation:

Unlike today where the predictions of Alfred ring true even regarding the Church, this is what was written in 1864 as a recap of the Foundational Pastor: Continue reading

The Present Civil War; Melancton Smith: Anti-federalists Predicted

The Present Civil War; Melancton Smith: Anti-federalists Predicted

Melancton Smith was a key Anti-federalist during the whole period of debates on the Constitution of 1787. Interestingly, The Anti-federalists had amazing foresight to the extent that their arguments were predictive to what we are experiencing in The Present Civil War.

The October Imprimis has a very good article called “America’s Cold Civil War” that fitfully describes what I and others have been talking about for years. Yet, the predictive perspective of this actually began with the Anti-federalists.  This Present Civil War is a culmination of ideologies that were not countered by the expectations of John Adams and Madison: This Constitution is ‘Only’ for a Moral and Virtuous people and none others. Continue reading

7-7-18 Sam Adams and the Anti-federalists Vindicated

The Vindication of the Founders of the Nation is required even more so now in the congregation of the churches where Liberty in its totality once rang true.

As I was preparing for this program I received and email that has taken me down a completely different course than I intended. The article by Dr. Joel McDurmon title “Sam Adams to America: “I told you so.”” vindicates all that I have been doing these many years as Sam Adams as well as my diatribe that the Anti-federalists ‘Got It Right’! Great article so click on the link in this paragraph or in the References to read it.

With this past Wednesday being ‘Independence Day’ – I want to remind you of the word of Sam Adams as he was asked to give his perspective related to the Declaration of Independence. He spoke about this Action on August 1, 1776 – the day before the final signatures were affixed to the completed document. Continue reading
