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.Continue reading →

The Law as seen put into practice in our present time needs more than one discussion. The Law: Part 2 is a continuation of the historical and foundational truths regarding the supremacy of law in relationship to everything. No different then the extensibility of the Gospel, the whole law of God is manifested in every aspect of His creation. Yet we learn via the reference noted below from LONANG.COM that our foundational historical context of law degenerated about the same time as the ‘social gospel’ made its rage in America.
I somewhat delve into Federalist No. 37 in this program because Madison, as a student of Dr. Witherspoon, has a clear understanding of the fallen nature of mankind. In No. 37, Madison does more than defend the ‘convention of ’87’. He takes us on that journey that encompasses the ‘Laws Of Nature and Natures God’. He looks at natural science, psychology, authority, communication and human bias.Continue reading →
What is Conservatism about? The question by a noted pastor/theologian is: Conserving What? Are those who call themselves “Conservatives” looking to return to the past in history? Are they trying to return to the Constitution as it was when established? Are they looking to reformation in the church? Or, are they re-establishing Foundational Principles both Biblically, which is the derivative for social, economic and political continuity?
Mid-term Elections Matter even with the election of President Trump in 2016 is the first effort in fifty-years in what he clearly states in his inaugural speech. “Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.1” The forceful opposition to this clear transfer back to Founder’s Intent for self-governance is the purposeful intent of the democrats and their socialists/neo-marxists collaborators.
The greatest fights for our Constitutional Republic are yet before US. The miscreants of the attacking ‘left’ are now fully engaged to topple every aspect of the Constitution and the Republic. With the confirmed appointment of Justice Kavanaugh they are conceding the loss of the position but are claiming through people like actress Milano, “we may have lost a political battle, but I do think we are winning the cultural battle.2” – In her interview on “Meet The Press” of all programs. This self-styled political genus uses the word ‘collective’ numerous times. Remember that language usage is 100% telling of ones ideologies.
I am spending the first segment on the Ohio Governor Primary. I believe it is critical to understand that the swamp is everywhere to which we must take a critical eye to understanding the candidates. I have a link to my preferred and recommended Gubernatorial candidate in the References below.
I make a quick mention of the Societal Sphere of Sovereignty since the churches and mostly those with any hint of Reformed aren’t expressing sufficiently the full extensibility of the True Gospel. As you know, I consider the condition the nation is in the primary fault of bad theology and broad teaching of the Principles into society – More for a different venue and video.
In the majority of the program I am getting to the Constitutional responsibility of the President and Congress to protect us from invasion, which includes illegals crossing the borders. I also take you into the US Code that allows the President to call on the National Guard for this purpose.
Lastly, as I have mentioned, My new book is available and I will be promoting it during this month as we look to launching the Seminars once again in June.
Through all the blast of the media and the rhetoric of Congress to the standing on solid ground of a partially staffed Administration – not a single soul is talking about what the realities of fact and truth are in functional governance – under actual Constitutionalism.
In preparing for my radio program it became evident again that the emotionalism of all the media completely distorts any ability to get to the heart of the matter – How is our Constitutional Republic Intended to function? Frankly, those in government and even the super self-serving lawyers in Congress don’t understand nor do they want to. They have become so dependent on the donors and lobbyists that they have thrown the concepts of Constitutionalism deep in the sub-basement of the Capital and all the marble bureaucratic buildings in D.C.
How Dare I say this? Simple, I know how to read and reading the Federalist Papers alone gives clear intention (Intent) for how governance should function in the Republic. So before we get to the core issues as indicated by the title let us get one thing very clear: every pundit, talk show host/hostess, politician or bureaucrat that calls this nation a democracy should be heavily chastised, have their ears rung and be thrown out the door for manifesting their ignorance or subversive ideologies. Why? Because we are a Constitutional Republic (period)! If you cannot get that correct then you have no capacity to understand how this nation should function! Continue reading →

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 →
Comments Off on 8-5-17 Consolidated Government Not the Republic You Thought It Was
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 →

Generation Z – What do you know about them? This large group of citizens, 70 million strong, is emerging onto the scene with gusto. What are the worldviews of these individuals that are half still in high school and the other half in college or the work force? How are they different from Millennials in the views on economics, politics and religion?
Gen Z or known as the iGen for their ease of life in the digital world are affecting marketing and policy making now and into the next eighty years.
With that, I will be hammering it home to your remembrance that “People are Policy” and we need to develop Gen Z into policy-makers with Foundational Principles and Ethics. It is ever so critical to do this. Continue reading →
