Blue State Constitutions? Really? Blue States have Constitutions?
I know that it is hard to believe that States like California and New York actually have ‘State Constitutions.’ One would think that they are just extensions of the federal government bureaucracies and the D.C. Swamp. Well, in a Hamiltonian way they have become that consolidated, assimilated region of the Federal Government.
Believe it or not, the State Constitutions of California and New York have a Bill of Rights as their ‘first’ article. This is significant. Not only that, but the number of sections in theses constitutions is telling about what the Citizens of those states can claim.
Californians have the capacity to reform their state on the basis of Article I. New York not so much. I discuss this in the first segment.
Corporatism Corrupts State Constitutions
My focus for this weeks program is only on two of the Blue States, it is clear by all the policies that California and New York have done away with any Article I, their Bill of Rights, Citizen authority from their State Constitutions. The only thing remaining operational in those ‘covenants’ with the people are the processes of government. But that is another discussion for another day.
What is clear by the definitions from Last Weeks Program, is that local, national and global corporatism is the mechanisms of governing in these two Blue States.
The challenge to all in those state is to read, learn and act according to their Article I: Bill of Rights from their State Constitution.
Constitutions Are Covenant/Contract
While writing my book ‘From Covenant To The Present Constitution,’ I did a lot, and I mean a lot of study on covenant and contract. I attest that constitutions are in every sense of foundational and historical record, a covenant.
With that said, as I note on the podcast/vblog, Dr. Rushdoony, who many of you out there don’t like, does hit this one out of the part and right between your eyes into your thinking. Consider the following from; Introduction to the Law:
‘Before we begin our study of biblical law, however, it is important to recognize certain general facts concerning law. First of all, law in every culture, in every civilization is religious in origin. There is no place in the world where we can go where we can find law that is not religious. Law reflects what men believe to be is basically right and wrong in a society. It reflects the ideas of culture, of justice, of ultimacy.
Second, in any and every society, the source of law is the god of that society. The easiest place to locate the god of any system is to look to the source of law. If the courts are the source of law and there is no higher law beyond the courts, the courts have made themselves god, as is increasingly the case in our society. If the monarch rules absolutely and makes himself the ultimate lawgiver, then he is a god. If it is the people according to the theory of democracy, who are the source of law, then the people are the god of that system. In Marxism, it is the people as they find voice in the state. Mao Tse Tung has said our god is none other than the masses of the Chinese people, but the voice of this god can only be the communist party. In any and every law system, the source of law is the god of that society.
Third, it follows from this that any change of law, any change of law that affects the basic law structure of society is a change of religion, and this is exactly what we have been undergoing for the past generation or more in this country, a change of religion, and very steadily, our law system has been changed in order to provide us with another religion while we are assured that there is total toleration for all religions, but humanism is now the religion and provides the law system of our American society as it does of virtually every country in the world.
Fourth, it follows from this that there can be no disestablishment of religion in any society. You can disestablish a church, but you cannot disestablish religion. A society must either have the Christian religion established, or it will have a humanistic religion, or Buddhism, or Mohammedenism, or something else, because it must have a basic faith to provide the concept of justice, the moral code, the law system for that society. The attacks you find today in our courts on capital punishment, on restitution, on the idea that the criminal is guilty, or that the alcoholic is guilty, all these constitute an attack upon the biblical law system, and the biblical law system is being disestablished, together with Christianity, as the religion and law basis of American society as well as English, Canadian, French, German, all Western society.
Fifth, it follows from this that there can be no toleration in any law system for another religion. You can tolerate various churches of a particular religion, various interpretations, but you cannot tolerate another religion, because then you are saying that you are tolerating total revolution. You are tolerating the overthrow of your law system, of your political order, of everything. By tolerating humanism, this is exactly what we have done. Humanism is, at present, in the mopping up stages of its revolution against Christianity.’
Blue State Constitutions And More
One of the ‘And More’ for this weeks program are the points I discuss regarding the High-school girl arrested for not wearing a muzzle, I mean a mask, in class. So hold on to your hats Cowboys and Cowgirls because I discuss the Wyoming Constitution Article I: Bill of Rights and I don’t want you all to go packing up and moving to Wyoming after hearing what I have to say. Remember, repudican Liz Cheney represents the state, for now.
The Next ‘And More’, I go to my non-pulpit platform to once again bring the Truth that really matters not just the political historical mirrors of history. This is that the majority of Evangelicals over the last 80+ years have allowed the Country to fall into the hands of the enemy. Now the enemy begins in the spiritual realm but it is active in the world we live in. I’m asking you to watch this sermon; ‘A Christian Response To Mandatory Cookies’ by…. Not Doug Wilson… but by Jeff Durban. You’ll get a kick out of the Truth Jeff speaks since he was a World Champion martial artist with 5 Black-Belts.
Lastly in the ‘And More’ is the lightening round which covers: CA destruction of Article I ‘ private property,’ Crushing Suburban America – Also see – The Impact of SB 9 & 10 on California’s Single-Family Home; ‘the Beast’ in the EU, specially Lithuania; Poland’s POLEXIT; the Logistics backup issues (see References below) and a quick word at the end from Thomas Jefferson replying to articles written by Spencer Roane.
Constitutionalism or Reformation
For the newsletter, I am going to continue to hammer it home that the Pulpits and church leadership teams need to get some gonads.. I’m keeping this simple and reminding you of Madison and John Adams similar statement that ‘This Constitution is ONLY for a moral and religious people.’ We are not getting a moral and virtuous people that understand that Jesus is King and has ALL, read it fully, ALL Authority in Heaven AND On Earth.
Get the Reformation in the churches back to our Founders understanding of ‘Applied Reformation Truth and Principles,’ then Constitutionalism will be able to get back on course. Enough on that for now.
Ohio Constitution Project
Now, we are going to begin a study group on the Ohio Constitution. I am going to have an introductory meeting early in December. So if you are interested and live in the Geauga or Lake Counties of Ohio, email me for more info.
This will be in conjunction with me being a part of a team developing a course on the Ohio Constitution. This course is as the national project by the Institute On The Constitution to ensure that there is a solid lecture series for each State.
For Ohio, to complete the printing and shooting the videos that will be associated with this course we need to raise $10,000.00 total. We have $1,000.00 in the kitty now so we need to raise $9,000 more. Contact me for the address to the Institute On The Constitution who holds the money in escrow for this effort.
Please see this page for more details on this Ohio and National Progects.
