The facts are that Sam Adams, Meyhew and Witherspoon were contemporaries. Johnathan Meyhew was born in 1720, Adams in 1722 and Witherspoon in 1723. Adams graduated Harvard in 1740 with an AM and a Masters Degree in 1742. Meyhew graduated in 1744 and Witherspoon received his Master from the University of Edinburgh in 1739. Sadly, hardly anyone really knows much about these three. Continue reading

The Mid-Term Election Matter
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.
So what about all the ‘Tolerance’ shouting and coexistence stuff? Continue reading
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
Over the last two weeks I have been working on the various textual materials for SACPS.org from source writing about or directly by Sam Adams. I have been focusing on the topic of policy development. In doing this I had to do my standard ‘go down the rabbit hole’ in following the extensibility of Sam Adams knowledge base. During that journey is were I came to a comparison of Vindiciae Contra Tyrannos (translated: A Defense of Liberty Against Tyrants) and its similarity to “An supremo Magistratui resistere liceat, si aliter servari Respublica nequit?” – Sam Adams Masters Thesis translated “Whether it be lawful to resist the Supreme Magistrate, if the Commonwealth cannot be otherwise preserved?”
This then takes us into who and what many are in the US, and yes, even patriots fit the descriptions of my friend from the past Alex De Tocqueville. Yupper, He’s the first one to talk about the ‘sheeple!” We learn, that the socialist / communist of 1850 are the same as today and De Tocqueville cannot describe their tyranny and despotism in democracies or republics in the historic manner. No, he goes one further and describes our present government – “Elected Guardians.”
Yes, it is another July 4th holiday. Although I believe that we should go back to declaring it the remembrance of “Independence Day!” Samuel Adams goes back over a year to that April 19th at Lexington Bridge and can distinctly recall the first shot fired for Liberty’s sake.
I must always go back to the speech that Sam Adams gave on August 1st 1776. His words should be the ones that stand for the establishment of truth and fact in setting the stage for the American Revolution! Who better than Adams, The Father of The American Revolution, to dissect, encourage, rebuke and remonstrate the purposes of the Independence for the new American States.
Please listen to what Adams had to say and you can also download the speech in pdf format as well.
This is a must continuation of Last Weeks program! We take on the discussion again with the Anti-federalist perspective on how the Constitution of 1787 could lead to the usurpation, despotism and tyranny that we are living under in our present time.
We hear from Mercy Otis Warren in particular and learn that it is a lack of morality in governance that opens the flood gates for tyrants.
We are living in a tyranny that only a movement of God, as in the First Great Awakening, can change the tide towards slavery of the citizenry.
Moderns do not understand Tyranny!
In this program I not only give the definition but show how we are, without question, living under tyranny.
Tyranny: The use of arbitrary Power.
Governor Bradford in his history of Massachusetts, says : ” In these patriotic measures to resist the encroachment of arbitrary power, the citizens of Boston seem to have been the first. They instructed their Representatives in May, 1764.” the signal which first called for combined action against an act of tyranny,
John Lock – Sec. 199. AS usurpation is the exercise of power, which another hath a right to; so tyranny is the exercise of power beyond right, which no body can have a right to. And this is making use of the power any one has in his hands, not for the good of those who are under it, but for his own private separate advantage. When the governor, however intitled, makes not the law, but his will, the rule; and his commands and actions are not directed to the preservation of the properties of his people, but the satisfaction of his own ambition, revenge, covetousness, or any other irregular passion.
