This week I am taking a first pass in my study of Calvinism 2.0. Also, I have to bring us back to Sam Adams perspective that ALL Governance is Local. So, I did title the program, “Calvinism 2.0 – Local Governance” in that it is required to have an understanding on how all governance should function in relationship to ones True understanding of the extensibility of Biblical Reformation Reality.
Sam Adams fully understood this as proven by his moniker “the Last Puritan”. To that, I have included in the references, the Congregational Quarterly, January 1869, which has a great article titled “Samuel Adams, the Last of the Puritans.” Notably, the nation in 1869 had already experienced the forethought of disappointment that Sam Adams envisioned for the Republic without a Puritan mindset. Now look at the mess we are in! Our mess is even further from the glorious hopes of that “Last Puritan” basically because of what he predicted would happen if the pulpits lost their Sound Theology of Reformation purism.Continue reading →

Sam Adams predicts our present governance and political situation. His letter to James Warren stresses that Morality and Virtue ensures Liberty.
Adams defines that this must be a definitive aspect of education. By not inculcating our youth in morality and the mechanisms of virtue we loose the prospects of maintaining Liberty. Continue reading →

This program drives through the pain of Theology Education and Digital Liberty
The pain is that the diversity in Theology or should I say questionable Theology of many predominant pastors is the cause of church, social, cultural and political confusion. I’ll start with this, for those that promote the need for the church in the US to go through persecution, you are the cause of any and all persecutions in our modern American times.
I have to make a simple correction for tomorrow, the notes I used for the program call out an incident regarding Franklin Graham but the fact is that what made my hair stand on end for this weeks program is a story in the Hill regarding Jerry Falwell Jr.
The simple point is that the education in the seminaries and public systems is so limited and deceitful that I can see why there is so much ugliness in social justice nonsense, the support for lawlessness regarding illegals crossing the boarders and the decline in education, culture and yes the fundamentals of Biblical Reformation Truth.

Today I am joined by Adam Retych who is a researcher in educational policy. He has been focused on SEL: Social and Emotional Learning. First of all, SEL is a critical topic that, once again, is leading the way for the ‘state’ or ‘statism’ to determine the uniformity of social and emotional norms for all. Adam and I discuss what this insidiousness called SEL is. While the definition and standards sound good, the discerning ear can cut to the chase of the destructive influence this system will have in the long run. Adam’s research is extensive in particular to Ohio yet this is certainly impacting over twenty of the States in the nation who have it fully implemented.
Contact me if you would to get more information via Adam. The key references regarding SEL are in the References section below.
Bribed With Your Own Money – Melancton Smith Continued:
This week is simple: In the first segment I give a quick update from the founders perspective on the Supreme Court Nomination and the hellacious noises from the Court steps to the main stream media. The last two segments are regarding ‘What’ Sam Adams had to say about voting and how we should vet candidates as well as develop future leaders through morality in education. He said this: “As Piety, Religion and Morality have a happy influence on the minds of men, in their public as well as private transactions, you will not think it unseasonable, although I have frequently done it, to bring to your remembrance the great importance of encouraging our University, town schools, and other seminaries of education, that our children and youth while they are engaged in the pursuit of useful science, may have their minds impressed with a strong sense of the duties they owe to their God, their instructors and each other, so that when they arrive to a state of manhood, and take a part in any public transactions, their hearts having been deeply impressed in the course of their education with the moral feelings—such feelings may continue and have their due weight through the whole of their future lives.”
References for today are the four volumes of Sam Adams writings:
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 →

Edmund Burke describes what originally Made America Great.
We need to learn from this speech! Yes, I read it because the words are timeless and this proves our ‘Populous’, ‘Religious’ heritage that had England in a turmoil. So too it has the globalists/progressives/communists in a turmoil this very day. What the media including Hannity and others don’t do is Bring back the real facts and truth that will Make America Great Again. It is our Foundational Heritage not just the economy.
This week I am delving back into Ben Rush’s work on the ‘Thoughts Upon the Mode of Education Proper In A Republic’ from the middle. There the perspective of Patriotism and American Culture is discussed. I reference a YouTube video that I really like with Doug Wilson (see the references). I get back to Ben Rush and bring in the hard hits on UNESCO.
President Trump pulled US out of UNESCO again for cultural reasons. Reagan pulled US out for poor management reasons. It was George W. Bush that put us back in. I’m going to introduce you to the two best reads on education and UNESCO there are in the whole library of books on this issue. The bottom line is that we should defund every aspect of UNESCO and completely void all treaty aspects that have US encumbered and slaves to the destruction of every entity under its auspices. Great starting point for getting out of UN since UNESCO has so many tentacles’.
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.
Thoughts Upon The Mode Of Education Proper In A Republic
The tragedy in Las Vegas is more easily assessed by admitting that we have degenerated in our educational system; because of a lack of knowledge, we see the results in our intentional move away from Founders Original Intent. As I began last week to talk about Witherspoon as a Founder and educator, this week I begin to discuss the treatise written by the gent that got Witherspoon to come to Princeton.
I’m not going to be long in the promo. Simply the key words are ‘inculcate’, ‘Liberty’, ‘Patriotism’, ‘Christianity’, ‘constitutionalism’ and ‘Republic’. I’m not going to get into the depth of it this week but… the battle of education in truth is not new; it was a battle even in 1786. Hmmm, maybe that is why we saw constitutionalism degenerate by the early 1800’s! I’m inclined to go with what Benjamin Rush has to say for our Republic.
Almost everything that has been going on for the last century has been the ‘battle for truth.’ We have lost perspective our Founder’s Truth and Intent as well as where they sourced Truth. Samuel Adams had a primary source for Truth that I identify today. I also give you more insight to the Samuel Adams Center for Political Science. Here is my email to contact me about SACPS: firstname.lastname@example.org
Next I discuss Montezuma, not the Aztec emperor but the Anti-federalist. His satire on the establishment of the Constitution of 1787 is a clear descriptor of what has been and is happening in Congress today! Yes, the Anti-federalists Got It Right!
Then I tell you why we must have Ob’Ryan care. Yes, just in time for St. Patti’s Day. This is mandated not by what Tom Price or Newt Gingrich are saying about Congressional process. No, the deception is in what most refuse to learn, accept or the politicians talk about – the UN mandates for ‘universal health care.’ Continue reading →
