Durable Government: Foundations vs Framework (Do you know the difference?)

God isn’t mentioned in the Constitution” say the atheists and the ignorant. I agree. The Name(s) of God are not to be found anywhere in the U.S. Constitution.

The heads of my liberal naysayers will explode when I say this about the foundation ofdurable government our nation: The Constitution is not the foundation. It is the framework.

Let’s define terms. Shall we? The following definitions are from the WordReference.com online dictionary.

Nationa large body of people, associated with a particular territory, that is sufficiently conscious of its unity to seek or to possess a government peculiarly its own.

Foundationthe base on which some structure rests.

Frameworka skeletal structure designed to support something.

We the People began to become a nation while still under the constitutional monarchy of Great Britain. Before the American Revolution, our colonial forefathers were citizens of that global empire.

Thirteen individual and autonomous states comprised our particular territory when these colonies signed a peace treaty with that empire in 1783.

Each of the thirteen states drew up their own constitutional frameworks of government. It was a compact between those thirteen states that united us as a confederacy. The framework of  that confederate government could be likened to a shack that was unable to weather storms.

On May 25, 1787 delegates of all the states except Rhode Island convened a constitutional convention in Philadelphia. The original intent was to modify or fix the confederate constitution so the states could go forward as a strong nation. This did not happen.

After weeks of debates and hand-wringing, the convention was wholly unfruitful. It was at this point Founding Father Benjamin Franklin took the floor with his famous speech that turned the convention upside down. You can read his famous speech via this link: Franklin’s Appeal for Prayer at the Constitutional Convention

Instead of fixing an unworkable confederacy, the convention of 1787 produced the U.S. Constitution, the framework of our present-day federal government.

Construction professionals know to first lay a sturdy foundation before hammering together the frame of a structure.

Our present-day Constitution is a rhetorical framework for government that rests upon a philosophical foundation.

The Declaration of Independence declares the philosophical foundation for these United States of America. I quote from the second paragraph:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...”

Creatora person or thing that creates.

The philosophical foundation upon which the framework of our government rests is acknowledgement of  God as our supreme authority.

To my knowledge, there are only two nations in all history that share this same philosophical foundation: Israel and the U.S.A.

To support the above, I refer you to page 66 of the book titled One Nation Under God: A Factual History of America’s Religious Heritage By Leon G Stevens.

34% of the Founding Fathers’ quotes came directly out of the Bible

Atheists, agnostics and liberal educators diligently and relentlessly strive to blot out all mention of God in text books, public institutions, universities, and even the hallowed halls of Congress. But, there it is.

Speaker Joe Straus: You claim to be Republican, but your actions suggest otherwise

republican majority

Mr. Speaker, I read the duties of the Speaker of the House from your own website. Nowhere on that list of duties do I see a duty to autocratically obstruct the will of the people, as expressed by the majority seating before you.

I know you as a gentleman. Will you remain a gentleman in the special session?

If you believe Governor Greg Abbott’s agenda unpopular, bring all the items to the floor for a vote to prove your point.

Powers & Duties

The speaker is the presiding officer of the house of representatives. The Texas Constitution requires the house of representatives, each time a new legislature convenes, to choose one of its own members to serve as speaker.

As presiding officer, the speaker maintains order during floor debate, recognizing legislators who wish to speak and ruling on procedural matters. The constitution also requires the speaker to sign all bills and joint resolutions passed by the legislature. As a member of the house of representatives, the speaker may vote on all questions before the house.

The other duties and responsibilities of the speaker are determined by the members of the house in the House Rules of Procedure, which are adopted by a majority vote of the members at the beginning of each regular session of the legislature. The members give the speaker the authority to appoint the membership of each standing committee, subject to rules on seniority, and to designate the chair and vice chair for each committee. Under the rules, the speaker is responsible for referring all proposed legislation to committee, subject to the committee jurisdictions set forth in the rules. The rules also allow the speaker to appoint conference committees, to create select committees, and to direct committees to conduct interim studies when the legislature is not in session.

Illegal Aliens: Mexican Government Spits Against The Wind

A word of wisdom to the Mexican Consulate General of Mexico, Dallas. There is a proverb that warns, “He who spits against the wind, spits in his own face.”

The Mexican government and a select number of your fellow countrymen unlawfully in our country demand favor and mercy with respect to residency issues. Your collective disrespectful and unruly behavior assures neither.

Report, The Washington Times – Thursday, June 1, 2017

 

No doubt you are forgetful of the Mérida Initiative that addresses our mutual interests in combating the flow of illegal drugs in our shared part of the world. My country, the USA, appropriated $2.5 billion USD from 2008 through 2015 to assist Mexican self-defense against the illicit drug trade.

Yes, there is an angry sentiment among my countrymen on the issues of illegal immigration by your countrymen. Your disrespectful affronts against the President of the United States of America and the People of the United States of America will further galvanize a movement toward construction of a wall between our countries.

You are spitting against the wind.

Memorial Day History: What is it you don’t know about the Liberty Bell?

liberty-bell.png

Consider these statements by notable American leaders.

The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” – John Adams

I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?” – Benjamin Franklin

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” – Ronald Reagan

When Barack Obama trumpeted all the many and wonderful benefits Islam brings to the world, the news media applauded. When President Trump acknowledges our Christian heritage, a maelstrom of negative stories flashes across the continent.

John Hancock was the “Donald Trump” of his day. Like Mr. Trump, Mr. Hancock was a hard-working successful businessman who opposed oppressive taxation and mind-numbing government regulations. So it was he who financed the Boston Tea Party. Didn’t you know this?

John Hancock was the financier of the American Revolution and it was by his intellect and financial expertise our Patriots were outfitted with guns and ammunition. Didn’t you know this?

For the above reasons, John Hancock was awarded the privilege of being the first to sign the Declaration of Independence.

As Governor of Massachusetts, Hancock called on the citizens of that state to pray “that the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be established in peace and righteousness among all the nations of the earth.”

God raised up John Hancock at just the right time to turn back the tide of tyranny that was enslaving our people. 244 years later, God raised up Donald Trump to turn back the tide of the tyranny of bureaucracy and unholy socialism.

Politicians led us into the mess in which we find ourselves wallowing in astronomical debt and public unrest fomented by an atheistic former president and his fellow atheist, a would-have-been successor to the Democrat throne. As in the beginning of our nation, God has given us this year a leader who understands finance and has already undone an enormous amount of bureaucratic swamp land.

Some years ago, while attending The Response in Houston, a young woman reporter from Politico asked me if Governor Perry would suggest the Republican Party for the salvation of America. I answered, “No, he will say that Jesus Christ is the only salvation for our country.” He did as I predicted and she published that interview in her news magazine.

The volume of blood shed by our armed forces in the defense of our liberty is MORE THAN ONE AND A HALF MILLION GALLONS!

I pray that God will have mercy on America, that he will protect and promote our president and vice president, and that this nation does not succumb to godless ideologies that have decimated the populations of nations ruled by despots.

Memorial Day affords dual opportunities for us to honor our fallen warriors and for us to acknowledge, as Ronald Reagan said, that we are a nation under God and we choose to not go under.

Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal takes point on the assault on our president

Why Democrats chose the jackass to represent their party
Where was Mr. Blumenthal throughout the corrupt 8 years of the Obama administration? Why no call for a special prosecutor to investigate Benghazi-gate? Why no curiosity about Hillary Clinton’s shady uranium deal with the Russians?

To all you Democrat readers: We won. You lost.

Millions of Americans are suffering because they can’t afford ObamaCare and Sen. Blumenthal wants to keep that onerous plan in place so government forces us into a single-payer model like Great Britain and Canada.
 
MSM fake news and self-appointed ‘fact checkers’ say President Trump is incorrect that Canadians are coming to the USA for medical treatment. What do Canadians tell us? Read “Estimated 52,000 Canadians sought medical care outside Canada…Number of ‘medical tourists’ up 26% in 2014” CBC News, 2014.
 
 
Democrat leadership today is not the leadership of Harry Truman, FDR, or John F. Kennedy. Democrat leadership of today is atheistic, profane, dishonest, and totally corrupt.
 
Fake news and leading Democrats claim Republicans face a backlash from voters. Here’s news for you Democrat liars: You have already faced one major backlash from your voter base in the 2016 elections and the backlash will be even greater in subsequent elections because your party only represents special interests like Warren Buffet, George Soros (a frequent visitor to the Obama White House), and the homosexual activists (a tiny minority of Americans).
 
We the People are fed up with all corruption in the Nation’s capital and it is, for this reason, we elected President Donald Trump, the “Human Wrecking Ball” to cull out establishment politicians and bureaucrats.
 
May God bless America and may God bless President Donald Trump.

What’s Left For Democrat Die Hards?

What best describes the 2017 Democratic Party?

Clue Number 1


The Daily Caller’s Phillip Stuckey was undercover with protesters that stormed The Heritage Foundation this morning (25 April 2017).

The above story reveals how Democrat protesters are paid actors and they do not represent the citizens, but are tools of the corrupt leaders who control all things Democrat.

Clue Number 2

The Washington Times - Abortion question opens rift among democrats over direction of party.png
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said there is an “enormous disconnect” between rank-and-file Democrats — one-quarter to one-third of whom identify as pro-life — and party leadership, to whom abortion is sacrosanct.

Read more of this story from the Washington Times: http://bit.ly/2oHZjvN

Clue Number 3

The Democratic Party prefers a minority of persons experiencing GID – gender identity disorder – over the constitutional rights of America’s women and children.

In Summary

The Democratic Party is the party of atheist, bigots, racists, death, and anarchists. Let’s thrown a deep and abiding relationship with Marxists-socialists.

The clearest demarcation between hardcore Democrats and the rest of us is the official militant pro-death, pro-abortion plank in the Democrat party platform.

I was a Democrat who was born and raised in south Texas where everyone was a Democrat. I can’t recall even one person who would admit to being a Republican. Most of us were Harry Truman Democrats.

Jimmy Carter’s election was the turning point for me. I campaigned for him and I voted for him, but four years later I voted in the Republican primary for Ronald Reagan and a slate of Republican candidates.

What will the pro-life Democrats do now?

ACLU continues its assault on commonsense legislation crafted to protect vulnerable women and children

In an email today, the ACLU says, “North Carolina should truly repeal its unjust HB2 law that permits discrimination against LGBT people — and we’re calling on the NCAA to refuse to allow championship games to take place in NC until that happens.”

What’s wrong with the above ACLU complaint? Let’s do a little reality check.

ACLU and the LGBTQ-Whatever Confusion

While the left’s popular euphemism for homosexuality is the acronym LGBTQ, homosexuality remains a same-sex attraction.

Here’s the fun part. Are you ready, ACLU?

Men who are afflicted with same-sex attraction have no interest in the invasion of women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers. Homosexual men prefer men. Is this too deep for you? I’ll pull back and elaborate somewhat.

Women with same-sex attraction are not interested in men. Like homosexual men, they have no interest in the invasion of men’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers. Does this help?

The North Carolina HB2, like a similar bill before the Texas Legislature, was crafted to protect vulnerable women and children from sexual predators, guys who wish to walk into women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, and gymnasium showers with impunity. These heterosexual males are perverts and creeps who are generally unwelcome in the aforesaid facilities reserved for women and young children.

I know, I know. I’ve written some facts about life that challenge your baseless complaints, but you will eventually gain understanding (aka common sense) if you re-read the above several times, clicking your heels together while repeatedly saying, “I’m not in the women’s restroom. I’m not in the women’s restroom. I’m not in the women’s restroom.”
