The death warrant

Published

on

On a hot August day in 1985, Dick Brewster and Rod Compagna were installing a security system in the historic Ladd-Gilman House in Exeter, N.H. The Gilman family home dated back to colonial days; the Gilman family included a delegate to the original Constitutional Convention, and at least two U.S. Senators.

While tearing out the attic floor, they ran across an original broadside of the Declaration of Independence, printed on July 4, 1776 by Philadelphia printer John Dunlap. Only 200 of these were made for distribution to the colonies. The New Hampshire copy reached the state on July 16. Time was of the essence, since the Continental Congress had committed an act of treason against the Crown, and in so doing had signed their own death warrants.

The original Declaration of Independence would have been of little value had it not been distributed far and wide. The act of signing the document was brave by those who drafted and approved it; but the truly revolutionary (and punishable by death) act was dispatching the copies. Making a statement without following it up with action was then, as it is now, useless.

To win freedom, America had to fight a long, bloody war against the British, who were not wont to losing colonies to upstart revolutionaries. We fought the British again in 1812. Then we let liberty die.

Abolitionist Republican Abraham Lincoln’s victory over populist Stephen A. Douglas (who ramrodded the Missouri Compromise through Congress) sealed the south’s economic fate. But liberty’s fate was sealed long before that.  A long, fruitless series of statements, compromises, heinous judicial miscarriages, and political deadlock killed freedom and liberty, such that by December 20, 1860, the State of South Carolina decided to leave the Union rather than suffer further political injury.

Nearly three years, and a half million deaths after southern secession, Lincoln asserted that the action of those men who fought upon the hallowed ground of Gettysburg would be able to resurrect the suffocated liberty of America.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Those 620,000 war dead in the Civil War died for the same death warrant that the Continental Congress signed.

The death warrant is still in effect 241 years later. Whenever liberty dies in the United States, men may be called upon to fight and die for its rebirth. Today we are seeing freedom take its last gasping breath in America. The 14th Amendment, written to guarantee liberty to slaves, has become a bush of thorns, from which a right to kill babies has emerged. It has also been used to justify overturning the sovereign will of free states to govern their own affairs as guaranteed by the Constitution with travesties such as Obergefell v. Hodges.

The basic right to be born and live as free moral agents, subservient to God and Natural Law alone has been abridged by a government withheld from absolute tyranny by only the smallest counterweight. And now that counterweight has broken.

Last year, we had a choice between two candidates, neither of whom was ideal (to be charitable). We now have a man leading America whose qualifications are no better than Enoch Poor‘s to lead troops at Breed’s Hill or Hugh Judson Kilpatrick‘s to command at Gettysburg.

Yet we must all pledge our sacred honor and our duty to defend our country, and its leaders.

If called upon to fight, we will because we have a duty to those who lived before us. When those signers of the Declaration of Independence signed their death warrants–and acted to send 200 copies to the furthest colonies to publicize the deed–240 years ago today, they also signed our death warrants.

Either Americans will answer when liberty calls from the grave, or America itself will die.

Serial entrepreneur. Faith, family, federal republic. One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Pro-life Trumpservatives praise Trump for protecting unborn babies he isn’t protecting

Pro-life Trumpservatives praise Trump for protecting unborn babies he isnt protecting

Lately, it seems that not a day goes by where we aren’t provided with another example of how conservative values have been consumed by the fires of compromise on the altar of Trumpservatism. While sacrificing principles for power is commonplace for the GOP priests serving in the Temple of Trump, the sad reality is that real priests, pastors, and other religious leaders have provided the kindling and the oil that fuels the flames.

One of the tragic consequences coming from the rise of the group I refer to as the Fellowship of the Pharisees concerns abortion. In the Age of Trump, these false teachers have abandoned their defense of the unborn under the delusion that Trump is keeping his promises.

On her blog (civilrightsfortheunborn.org), Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote a piece responding to recent accusations made by Omarosa Manigault Newman that Donald Trump often uses racial slurs. *

* NOTE: While her claims may or may not be true, Trump is taking advantage of this “squirrel” moment to let America know that Omarosa is a “low life” even though he frequently brags about how he hires only the “best people.”

After making her case in defense of Trump, King concluded with these words:

“He is keeping his campaign promises. The job market is better for everyone. Unemployment is at an all-time low. Babies and children are safer inside and outside the womb. Prayer is returning to the public square.” (emphasis mine)

King’s claim is not only untrue, but the lives of the unborn continue to grow more perilous … and profitable.

Besides the fact that Trump and the GOP have continued to fund Baby Butchers, Inc. (Planned Parenthood), the byproduct of their murderous practices (body parts) has become another revenue stream, courtesy of the taxpayer—an income stream that has increased under Republican control of Washington.

A few days ago, we learned about a contract between the US Food and Drug Administration and Advanced Biometric Resources (ABR) to acquire human fetal tissue for experiments on mice. In a 2016 Senate Judiciary Committee report, we learned that ABR’s primary source of baby parts was Planned Parenthood.

Trump and the GOP allegedly created the “most pro-life platform ever” in 2016, and they promised to defund Planned Parenthood and bring an end to dismemberment abortions. Despite candidate Trump’s pro-Planned Parenthood sentiments at the time, so-called pro-life activists believed he would fulfill the GOP’s promise. But as we learned earlier this year, they have no intention of doing so.

Unfortunately, those who used to defend the unborn baby in the womb have chosen to defend the unethical baby in the White House. Meanwhile, there will be hundreds of thousands more slaughtered babies, thanks to cowards like Trump, the GOP, and so-called religious leaders.

Ben Shapiro on white supremacists

One-liners have been a staple of Ben Shapiro’s appeal since the political commentator entered the public eye a few years ago. Give him a topic and he’ll come up with something clever and almost certainly true to say about it. The topic of white supremacists was no exception.

“It’s not coincidental that people who spend all day talking about the supposed innate superiority of the white race are invariably brick stupid.”

MSNBC and the Huffington Post would like a new name for Socialism’s brutal oppression and mass murder

MSNBC and the Huffington Post would like a new name for Socialisms brutal oppression and mass murder

Leftists seem to think that with a brand new label, people will readily accept the carnage and repression that is necessary in creating their wonderful collectivist Utopia.

Brute force is the only way that socialism can function, it can hardly take “From each according to their abilities” without it. But that’s a hard sell when compared to the voluntary exchange of Economic Liberty. In general, people would rather live in freedom than under the boot heel of oppression, so the Left has to lie to convince people to enslave themselves under socialism. It’s a little shell game Leftists have played for centuries with different labels or sloganeering to sell their system of control “to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”

We are now witness to the Left trying to craft new versions of labeling for their ancient ideas, emphasising the goodies without mentioning the mass murder that has to go along with it. It should go without saying that the sales pitch will be long on free-stuff everyone is supposed to vote for themselves and short on talk of the SEBIN hauling people off to La Tumba when the promises run short. Most rational people wouldn’t choose to live under the tyranny of authoritarian socialism aside from the Leftists who get to run the show.

At present, bastions of the principles of Liberty are feverishly writing advice columns on how to accomplish the task. With emphasis on “Free Healthcare”,” Free college”, “Free housing”, “Free food” instead of the fact that everyone loses their Liberty under socialistic slavery – except for the Leftists who are in control.

The claim is that things have somehow changed, for this will be socialism with ‘No gulags’, just all kinds of free stuff paid for with other people’s money. The days of concentration camps, firing squads and Comités de Defensa de la Revolución (CDR) are gone*.  [*Except for China, Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela…] From the  Huffington Post – Relax, Boomers: Socialism Is Good Now.

The Liberty brain trust over on MSNBC discussed this issue while the host mocked everyone who fears the loss of freedom under socialistic slavery as mentioned on the Daily Wire: “But lots of people don’t get into the argument, they just go, ‘Oh my gosh, socialist, I can’t have that. It’s gonna take all my money,'” Ruhle arrogantly said while mocking American’s fears of socialism.

MSNBC’s Ruhle Mocks Fears of Socialism: ‘Oh My Gosh! It’s Gonna Take All My Money!’ 8-3-2018

But we on the Pro-Liberty Right would like to help out our comrades of the National Socialist-Left, They want a new name for their vile ideology of organised evil [Ops.. did we say that out loud..]. So we’re willing to help them out, given the effort will be difficult given the already existing 40 plus synonyms for their 500-year-old ideas:

Anarcho-syndicalism, Anarcho-Communism, Authoritarianism, Bolshevism, Castroism, Chávezism, Communism, collectivism, co-operative society, collective ownership, communalism, Economic Justice, Evolutionary Socialism, Fabianism, Fascism, Fourierism, Guild socialism, Leftism, Leninism, Libertarian-Socialist, Maoism, Marxism, Marxism–Leninism, National Socialism, Neofascism, Ochlocracy, Owenism, Progressivism, Project X, Reformism, Revolutionary Socialism, Rule of the proletariat, Social democracy, Social justice, Sovietism, Stalinism, Statism, State capitalism, State ownership, Syndicalism, Totalitarianism, Trotskyism, Utopian Socialism.

Aside from recycling a few words from the past, the Left is running short on words and slogans to sell Socialistic Slavery. So, in the spirit of generosity, we have a few suggestions for what the Left can do with it’s base ideology.

Notes on Leftist Labels

Leftists do have a penchant for playing games with definitions for common words, with the myriad labels for their base ideology being no exception. The dichotomy has always been between individualism and collectivism, in the case of the main label of their base ideology, the Left’s rationale is that socialism came from being ‘social’ + ism or Socialistic [as opposed to being individualist]. So it’s not beyond the bounds of reason to see them try to pull off the same linguistic legerdemain with other words that mean being nice or friendly.

Please take note of what seems to be the current take of the Left in trying to sell Socialistic Slavery to a new generation. This is the use of __________ ism – not mentioning the name of the ideology, but pushing all of it’s wonders, all paid for by money taken at gunpoint from other people.

New name suggestions.

Here are our suggestions along the lines of Leftist labeling lies, beginning with the granddaddy of them all:

Social + ism Socialism [The mouldy oldie that started it all]

Amiable + ism Amiablism

Free + ism Freeism

Friendly + ism Friendlyism

Liberation + ism Liberationism [If that sounds a lot like Liberalism, you’re catching on to the scam]

Society + ism Societism

Collective generosity (aka compulsory taxation) The collective being generous with your money – Taken at gun point

(h/t Paige)

Well, maybe those made up words won’t help since they are along the lines of made up words of the past that conveyed the same ideas that were new 5 centuries ago. So, maybe they can just bolt on a happy sounding adjective or slogan onto the existing words to help sell it with a reassuring lie that it won’t end as it always does.

Socialism – remember it’s still Democratic even if only the Politburo votes.

New and improved Socialism – now 50% gulag free.

Not your father’s Socialism – trust us, we don’t plan on having secret police or concentration camps….. unless we absolutely have to.

Voting for dollars!

Smiley face Socialism – Firing squad free, we *guarantee!
*For 30 days or 300 dissident arrests, whichever comes first. Your oppression my vary, see Marxism.org for complete details.

Progressivism – Running your life so you don’t have to.

So there you have it, our suggestions to the Left in how they can repackage their base ideology. Or perhaps the people have figured out the game. Just as changing the name doesn’t turn certain substances into something wonderful, so too is the case with socialism. There has to be a good reason that some joined the #WalkAway movement. Somehow a new term of total control over one’s life with mass murder and oppression in the background no longer appeals to anyone. Let us hope that is the case.
