Rev. David Whitney — Declaration of Independence….. “Note that Adams said, “…rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws…”…………”

……………EXCERPT!!!!!!!!!!

…..While every word in our Founding Charter is important perhaps the second most important principle of freedom to understand is that Our Rights come from God – Not Government, therefore they are not subject to the Repeal or Restrictions of Human Laws.

The Declaration of Independence states, “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 pursuit of Happiness.

HOROWITZ: ARE WE STRANGERS IN OUR OWN LAND?

Breitbart.com ^ | July 3, 2014 | David HorowitzPosted on 7/3/2014, 7:12:44 AM by Biggirl

As we near the 238th anniversary of U.S. independence, many Americans are wondering if we are indeed an independent nation with sovereign borders, given that tens of thousands of unaccompanied children are streaming across the southern border.

Have we become strangers in our own land?

Have all 50 US ‘states’ tendered their resignation from the United States ‘corporation’ as this video from BackToConstitution suggests? According to the Declaration of Independence, it is not only our RIGHT, but it is our DUTY, to ‘throw off’ a government of despots who are committing a long train of abuses as this government clearly has been. A government of criminals is clearly no government at all and will be held accountable.

The entire obituary of Galambos written by Browne is must reading. Browne says a lot of negative things about Galambos, but at the end of reading the obituary, the thought lingers: Who was this guy? And the next thought is: Boy, I wish I could have sat in on one of his courses. They aren’t any notes of his class. Browne reports, Galambos was very protective of his ideas and never put anything in writing. Indeed, Browne tells us:

He required every student entering one of his courses to sign a contract agreeing not to divulge any of the course ideas without permission from Galambos — and not even to use the ideas, in business or elsewhere, without permission.

Despite their widespread national pride, Americans evince a much more negative response when asked if the signers of the Declaration of Independence would be pleased or disappointed by the way the United States has turned out. Seventy-one percent of Americans say the signers would be disappointed, while 27% say they would be pleased.

Americans have become significantly less positive in response to this question, down from a high of 54% who said the signers would be pleased in 2001.

What Americans Used To Know About the Declaration of Independence by Thomas DiLorenzo

July 4, 2013 2 comments

“During the weeks following the [1860] election, [Northern newspaper] editors of all parties assumed that secession as a constitutional right was not in question . . . . On the contrary, the southern claim to a right of peaceable withdrawal was countenanced out of reverence for the natural law principle of government by consent of the governed.”

 

~ Howard Cecil Perkins, editor, Northern Editorials on Secession, p. 10

The first several generations of Americans understood that the Declaration of Independence was the ultimate states’ rights document. The citizens of the states would delegate certain powers to a central government in their Constitution, and these powers (mostly for national defense and foreign policy purposes) would hopefully be exercised for the benefit of the citizens of the “free and independent” states, as they are called in the Declaration.

Most students do not know that a score of years is twenty and, therefore, that Lincoln in 1863 references the year 1776 and the Declaration of Independence.

 

And instead of simply saying, for instance, “Eighty-seven years ago,” Lincoln deliberately chooses to use the Biblical language of Psalm 90, demonstrating that the time since the founding exceeds the allotted lifetime of man. As time separated those of Lincoln’s generation from the founders, so too has time separated our own generation from Lincoln. But now the gulf is much greater.

In his second inaugural address, Barack Obama challenged us to live out the meaning of our creed as stated in the Declaration of Independence. But he then redefined those ideals to suit his political aims. Change is necessary, he said, because “when times change, so must we.”

 

To preserve liberty, we must defend our principles, not change them. And doing so requires an understanding of their origin. To truly live out the meaning of our creed, we must first recognize what defined our founding as a nation. So let us objectively look at that beginning.

Obama’s inauguration speech morphs liberty into tyranny

January 31, 2013 Leave a comment

By Alan Keyes

 

People who have read and pondered the articles I’ve posted here over the years have undoubtedly noticed my consistent reliance on the principles and logic of the American Declaration of Independence. Many of America‘s self-professed conservative political leaders fail to think through and uphold the Declaration’s tenets. This may yet prove to be a flaw fatal to the prospects of liberty. Is this failure the result of incompetence? Or is it a matter of malicious choice? Whatever the explanation, in spurning the Declaration they discard the Providential gift that has been and remains America’s defining and most essential moral resource.

The heart of most Americans still responds to the understanding of justice conveyed in the Declaration’s most famous words, particularly its acknowledgment that “all men are created equal.” The Declaration’s words still move even those avowedly committed to the socialist degradation of America’s character and institutions. We see new proof of this in the inauguration speech just delivered by the idol they have lifted up to be the historical focal point for consummating that degradation. Barack Obama has consistently used a rhetorical device wherein he cites or alludes to the Declaration’s words even as he advocates and implements an understanding of government that contradicts the Declaration’s logic. He did so again last week:

QUESTION: Book Mentioned on David Barton’s Heritage Series (GyG: Re Barton & Beck Bash The South…)

January 29, 2013 9 comments

I’m trying to find a school textbook about government mentioned on the American History Series show Jan 27, 2013 by Davide Barton.

I believe he said it was the first textbook published for the State of Connecticut around the 1850s.

He also said all of the thirteen states used it, and many states used it up until around the 1960s.

I can’t remember the title, but it was a tiny book with just four items:

2. The Constitution of the United States

3. George Washington’s Farewell Address

4. [I can't remember]

It ended with an elementary test covering all these subjects and David Barton said these items today are only covered to that detail in a college course for Law School.

A Voluntary Federation ( Lincoln was Wrong )

January 20, 2013 3 comments

This Humean notion of Americanism that acknowledges the right of a self-governing people to secede is framed in the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration is primarily a document justifying secession, but it has been thoroughly corrupted by Lincoln’s reading of it and the ritualistic repetition and expansion of that reading.

 

mussobama

The Lincoln tradition reads the Declaration as affirming a metaphysical doctrine of individual rights (all men are created equal) and takes this to be the fundamental symbol of the American regime, trumping all other symbols, including the symbol of moral excellence internal to those inherited moral communities protected by the reserved powers of the states under the Tenth Amendment. Indeed, this tradition holds that the Declaration of Independence is superior to the Constitution itself, for being mere positive law, the Constitution can always be trumped by the “higher” metaphysical law of equality.

Progressives now are arguing for stricter gun control. America, however, is founded on the “consent of the governed.” Americans’ sympathy for gun control, when polled by Pew after the Aurora atrocity, was about equally split between the restrictionists and those favoring the protection of the right to bear arms.

…..If Americans ever began celebrating the real meaning of the Declaration of Independence, then they would embrace the Jeffersonian rights of secession and nullification as a means of fighting back against governmental tyranny.

 

They would also withdraw their support for the U.S. government’s aggressive wars of imperialism in the Middle East and elsewhere, along with its hundreds of military bases on every continent on the planet.

The true right to secede comes from God, not the Constitution

December 6, 2012 38 comments

By Alan Keyes

 

In an article I saw this week at WND, Pat Buchanan writes of the Declaration of Independence:

 

The declaration was signed by 56 angry old white guys who had had enough of what the Cousins were doing to them. In seceding from the mother country, these patriots put their lives, fortunes and honor on the line.

Four score and five years later, 11 states invoked the same right “to dissolve the political bands” of the Union and form a new nation. After 620,000 had perished, the issue of a state’s right to secede was settled at Appomattox. If that right had existed, it no longer did.

Echoing comments he made back in 2009, Paul notes “This country was born through secession. Some thought it was treasonous to secede from England, but those “traitors” became our country’s greatest patriots.”

 

“…the principles of self-government and voluntary association are at the core of our founding….There is nothing treasonous or unpatriotic about wanting a federal government that is more responsive to the people it represents.” the Congressman adds.

 

Explaining that the recent election only served to further entrench the political status quo, Paul urges “…our own federal government is vastly overstepping its constitutional bounds with no signs of reform.” He reminds Americans that “the first and third paragraph of the Declaration of Independence expressly contemplate the dissolution of a political union when the underlying government becomes tyrannical.”

EXCERPT

 

………….3. Secession is treason/unAmerican/craaaazy/for slavers only. Prior to the confederacy, there were some slaveowners who got together and seceded from their government.

 

They were called Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. If you’re opposed to the secession of 1776, then that’s fine, you might be consistent on this issue, but if you’re one of these right-wing pundits who thinks the Declaration of Independence should be read aloud every July 4, and then says that secession is nutso, you might try actually reading that document you profess to love.

 

The Declaration makes a simple argument:

 

1. Humans have rights from the Creator

 

GyGRet

GyGRet (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

 

2. Governments exist to secure those rights (a debatable assertion but we’ll roll with it.)

 

3. When the government fails to secure those rights, we can ditch it and start our own government.

 

That’s pretty much all it says. If you thought that was true in 1776, when tax rates were 1% and there was not such thing as a the EPA or the FBI or the IRS, why is it not true now? Because we’re so much more free now? And no, the Declaration did not say that the government is free to violate rights as long as people get to vote on it.

 

The Declaration establishes that there’s no such thing as treason, and a free government requires the assumption of just secession. Lysander Spooner explains (in No Treason #1):

Its purpose is not to control us and keep our elected officialsin power, although that is exactly what it has become in practice. The purpose of government should always be to secure our rights! Government is not to be an agent of control over our lives. Instead, government is to be a defender of our rights- a defender of the way of life we have chosen for ourselves, and to assure that nobody interferes with it.

America was founded on a conspiracy theory: that Britain’s King George was conspiring against the colonists by all his actions.

 

The Declaration of Independence recites a series of conspiracies:

 

When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism … The history of the present King of Great Britain[and others working with and for him] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

The United States is separate from The United States of America and Presidents have dictatorial powers because we simply do not know their written law. Nothing is as it seems in government.

 

Here’s another fascinating talk with Dr. Edward Rivera

 

on the Four Organic Laws that you will find in The United States Code

 

The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

 

The Articles of Confederation, July 15, 1777

 

The North West Ordinance, July 13, 1787

 

Constitution of The United States, September 17, 1787

 

Dr. Rivera teaches an online course to understand how and why all of these Four Organic Laws are intertwined and fully in effect today. We wonder why politicians only mention The Constitution?

ARE RON PAUL AND GARY JOHNSON STUPID LIBERTARIANS?

 

Of course, they are.   If you wanted to prove the tenets of libertarianism were once and still are the basis of American political life, where would you go?  The Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776 and the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 established the foundation for libertarian government in the United States of America.

 

Who prevented the United States of America from becoming a libertarian country?  George Washington stopped libertarianism dead in its tracks on April 30, 1789, when he became dictator by combining the two offices of President of the United States and President of the United States of America.

 

If you want to re-establish libertarianism in the United States of America, all you have to do is go back to the Organic Laws before the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 and Constitution of September 17, 1787.

A lawful revolution is in response to government that abjectly violates its own laws, and refuses all reasonable offers to return government limits within its own constitution. It is a revolution that requests its own law enforcement to do their job to arrest obvious criminals in their own government. The central crimes are in unlawful wars that kill millions, and massive economic fraud that harms billions and loots trillions of the 99%’s earnings every year.

In response I have composed a 2nd Declaration of Independence. Ifirmly and passionately believe that the only way to defeat tyranny of the NewWorld Order now roaring at top speed from the Federal Government into ourlives is for all 50 States ultimately to reunite in a 2nd Continental Congress todefend the Constitutional principals of Liberty and Freedom reiterated inpoint within this the Second Declaration of Independence. Seceding isn’t thesolution. It is not the other States who are the enemy it is the FederalGovernment.

YOUR HOPE OF LEARNING THE LAW AND UNDERSTANDING GOVERNMENT IS TO BE FOUND IN THE ORGANIC LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

You don’t have much of a chance learning the law by reading the opinion of the Chief Justice in the Supreme Court case which found Obamacare constitutional as a tax and you can’t trust a government whose motto really is “don’t trust us.”

How can you learn the law and understand government? You can believe your own eyes. Buy the book the government doesn’t want you to read. Volume One of the United States Code is available from the U.S. Printing Office Bookstore for about a hundred dollars, but it is worth every penny, because it will tell you what you really owe government.

The Right To Secede by Joseph Sobran… (The original 13 states formed a “Confederation,” under which each state retained its “sovereignty, freedom, and independence.”)

July 11, 2012 31 comments

How can the federal government be prevented from usurping powers that the Constitution doesn’t grant to it? It’s an alarming fact that few Americans ask this question anymore.

Our ultimate defense against the federal government is the right of secession. Yes, most people assume that the Civil War settled that. But superior force proves nothing. If there was a right of secession before that war, it should be just as valid now. It wasn’t negated because Northern munitions factories were more efficient than Southern ones.

Among the Founding Fathers there was no doubt. The United States had just seceded from the British Empire, exercising the right of the people to “alter or abolish” — by force, if necessary — a despotic government. The Declaration of Independence is the most famous act of secession in our history, though modern rhetoric makes “secession” sound somehow different from, and more sinister than, claiming independence.

Declaration of Dependence

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for One Man to create political bands which shall bind a people unto himself, and to assume among the powers of the Earth, the separate and more equal station to which the Laws of Alinsky and of Alinsky’s god Lucifer entitles him, a decent self-respect and care for the opinions of posterity requires that he should declare the methods which impel him to the Throne.

The Declaration of Independence and Deism | Veterans Today

July 4, 2012 2 comments

Thankfully, America’s founders got their motivation not from the Bible but from the European Enlightenment and Deism. Deism is belief in God based on the application of our reason on the laws and designs in Nature. Deists believe the designs point us to our Designer, or “Nature’s God” as is described in the Declaration of Independence. Deism also rejects unreasonable ideas such as walking on water and raising the dead.

When Americans Understood the Declaration of Independence

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

Recently by Thomas DiLorenzo: The True Source of Monopoly

The Fourth of July was not always a national celebration of the militarization of American society and of the federal government’s never-ending quest for world domination (disguised as “defending our interests abroad”). Americans did not always attend church services on the Sunday before the Fourth of July to “honor” their “military heroes” and pray that they may kill many more human beings in other countries that have done them no harm. Americans once actually read and understood the Declaration of Independence for what it was: a declaration of secession from the British empire and a roadmap for opposing a highly centralized, militaristic empire of the sort the U.S. government has become.

The Declaration of Independence was the ultimate secessionist or states’ rights document. “Governments are instituted among men,” Thomas Jefferson wrote, for the sole purpose of securing God-given, “unalienable” rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Moreover, governments derive “their just powers from the consent of the governed” and nowhere else. And “whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government . . .”

Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of America‘s birth certificate: the Declaration of Independence. In my mind, there is no greater document of liberty ever written by man. When it came to the understanding of human rights, individual liberty, State rights, and enlightenment philosophy, Jefferson had no peer.

For the past few weeks, I have been writing in this column about the government’s use of drones and challenging their constitutionality on Fox News Channel where I work. I once asked on air what Thomas Jefferson would have done if – had drones existed at the time – King George III had sent drones to peer inside the bedroom windows of Monticello. I suspect that Jefferson and his household would have trained their muskets on the drones and taken them down.
