With this first post, I would like to lay before you, some initial background information. This idea grew out of my own frustrations with the political process in our country. I am not a member of any political party, unless you want to count the independents, but I don’t think such a party with that name exists. I am 55 years of youth and in all my voting years, I have never been invited to any party. 😦

Well that’s OK, I’d rather serve anyway. So I am having a service, The American Eagle Service. Maybe you have never been invited to a party like me, so I’m inviting you to serve! 🙂

It does not matter if you are some independent like me, a Democrat, a Republican or are part of some other party. All that matters is that you want to come and are willing to BYOB, (bring your own brains). I am trying to be lighthearted here, but I am really serious! To get the background on this whole idea, please visit one of my other blogs at wordpress. The title of the post is, ‘The American Eagle Party.’ It was written 8/1/08. Please take a look; give it a read and then return to this blog. Here is the link:
http://dahni.wordpress.com/2008/08/01/the-american-eagle-party/
There are six blogs (including this one), which are associated with each other and all are powered by WordPress.com They are as follows and should be viewed in the order shown.
1. Our Lady Liberty – “How’s She Doing”
http://www.OurLadyLiberty.wordpress.com
This blog is to hopefully Illuminate anyone interested, with history, information, trivia and resources about this experiment called, the United States of America. To know where we are going or desire to go, we need to understand where we have been. This is to provide the initial tools WE need to build OUR service. Background information, American History, quotes from OUR founding fathers and others that have contributed to this U.S.A. experiment, and even OUR founding documents (links), are what you can expect to find there. Illuminate!
2. An American Eagle – “When I-Magination Becomes Real”
http://www.anamericaneagle.wordpress.com/
This blog will hopefully Inspire and tell a story about The American Eagle Service becoming a reality. This is a fictional work in progress by me, shared on line. It is the story of a writer, Benjamin Thomas Silent (Ben Silent), that imagines what it would be like to see the U.S.A. return to its greatness. He shares many of his stories with his only one true friend, Kahlil Abrams. Kahlil is named after Kahlil Gibran and his mother is Muslim and his father Jewish. Conversations between Ben and Kahlil are carried on long distance over the phone. Kahlil is a successful business man living in California and Ben is a small town, homegrown Midwest man. They met in high school, became fast friends and have maintained their close relationship through their years. Each week Kahlil calls Ben and asks just one question, “what have you written?” As Ben begins to write, ‘An American Eagle,’ his friend encourages him to put it on line in a blog. Soon, the blog begins to take on a life of its own, and The American Eagle Service becomes a reality. But not before the powers that be, chase him across the country and try to stop him by any means! Inspire!
3. The American Eagle Service – You’re here
http://www.theamericaneagleservice.wordpress.com/
The American Eagle Service – Background and a repository, for the development of a new restoration service. This blog is to Initiate! It is for servants to post, ask, suggest, help, encourage and in general, to SERVE!!! Too many have been silent for too long, not believing that they have a voice or if their voice was heard that it would not matter anyway. Too many feel as if their representatives in government, do not and will not listen to the will of WE the people. Too many are afraid of losing our country, our rights and our freedoms – our LIBERTY! Too many are angry. Too many blame others and not a few, turn to violence. Too many people think we have no other choice than to hope things change. Too many have lost confidence in the media and in the dominant two-party political system. Too many of US are divided! I believe there are many and in sufficient numbers that would believe and would act and serve IF, WE had the power and a vehicle to make it happen. When WE truly get together, WE can change the course of our country; our lives and our futures and the futures of our children’s children and theirs and theirs and theirs and onward! Initiate
#4 of 6 is American Eagle News to Inform – provide news and announcements concerning WE the people
#5 of 6 is American Eagle Store to Invest – purchase stuff and to contribute to, WE the People – New Designs Now Available
#6 of 6 is 1 of WE Project to Incubate – a national project to encourage and nurture our wee little 1’s of WE  🙂

The next post to this blog will be an introduction to 8 principle ideas of how to take back control of our country. Each of 7 present ideas (most of which are already being tried), will be shared individually here in the future. Then finally, another future post will show why it is ONLY #8 (a new political service), which can truly be successful IF, WE the People, will act. Initiate!

Rules of Civility

Rules of Civility

By Dahni

© 2021, all rights reserved

   Following my previous post, ‘Transition’ https://wp.me/pGfx1-Ma  I want to begin here where I left off there. There was a quote by John Adams in my last post which I want to begin with here.

“We have no Constitution which functions in the absence of a moral people.”

-John Adams-

   I could ask the question, are we a moral people, but I will not. However, I certainly do believe there exists among us, moral persons! How many? I do not know, but I do believe there are enough to keep the rest of us afloat, the earth to keep on spinning and light to keep us from plunging into total darkness.

   I would hope that the rest of us would aspire to becoming (a continual lifelong process), a moral people.

   This brings us to the subject of civility, the rules of civility. The words “civilization” and “civility” have as their root, the word “civil“.  But rules? Oh no, not rules! You don’t like rules? Where is there freedom in rules? OK, how about order? No, too much like orders and being told what to do? No one likes to be told what to do. Children don’t like to be told what to do. My dog does not like it. No one likes to be told what to do. But try to build a house without rules. Why not from the top down? Going fishing? Fish don’t generally jump into the boat. The rule there is, if I want fish, I need to bait my line. My dog is not allowed to cross the road without my permission, why? Because I’m mean or do I just want to keep her a live?

   When George Washington was a young boy in school, he was taught rules, rules of civility, and to be exact, 110 rules of civility.

Image from: mountvernon.org – George Washington’s Rules of Civility

   ‘Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation’, which listed 110 rules of etiquette for young men [and young ladies too], were originally compiled and published in 1595 by French Jesuits. In 1645, this code of conduct was translated into an English version called ‘Francis Hawkins’ Youths Behavior, or Decency in Conversation Amongst Men’ [women too]. They were ascribed to Francis Hawkins the twelve-year-old son of a doctor. It was reprinted at least eleven times until 1672.

   By age sixteen, Washington had copied out by hand, these 110 Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation. Was this only for the practice of his penmanship?

“Today many, if not all of these rules, sound a little fussy if not downright silly. It would be easy to dismiss them as outdated and appropriate to a time of powdered wigs and quills, but they reflect a focus that is increasingly difficult to find. The rules have in common a focus on other people rather than the narrow focus of our own self-interests that we find so prevalent today. Fussy or not, they represent more than just manners. They are the small sacrifices that we should all be willing to make for the good of all and the sake of living together. These rules proclaim our respect for others and in turn give us the gift of self-respect and heightened self-esteem.”

excerpt from: http://www.foundationsmag.com/civility.html

   Richard Brookhiser, in his book on Washington wrote that “all modern manners in the western world were originally aristocratic. Courtesy meant behavior appropriate to a court; chivalry comes from chevalier – a knight. Yet Washington was to dedicate himself to freeing America from a court’s control. Could manners survive the operation? Without realizing it, the Jesuits who wrote them, and the young man who copied them, were outlining and absorbing a system of courtesy appropriate to equals and near-equals. When the company for whom the decent behavior was to be performed expanded to the nation, Washington was ready. Parson Weems got this right, when he wrote that it was ‘no wonder every body honored him who honored every body.'”

   This book is still available today. Some have edited and updated the language to the present. Click the next image to download a PDF copy of this book. Please note the beginning where it addresses the objections of modern-day youth that think manners is just another thing to reject in being told what to do that they reject, as a violation of the freedom of speech. This sounds like many adults today, as well.

   Well, if you are not interested in reading and/or Freely downloading the book in PDF format, here is one to follow. it is actually, the last one.

#110. Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire called conscience.”

excerpt from: ‘Francis Hawkins’ Youths Behavior, or Decency in Conversation Amongst Men’ [women too].

   What is conscience?

Conscience – An awareness of morality in regard to one’s behavior; a sense of right and wrong that urges one to act morally. A source of moral or ethical judgment or pronouncement.

   One needs a code of ethics, rules or orders they live by, God, or something like an analogy of a compass which points them in the direction of good manners, civility, morals which guide them and direct their character. There are many consequences, from the continued failures (a habit), in not having good manners. How about the following? 

“Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”

I Timothy 4:2 King James Version (KJV)

   What? Without manners I would end up speaking lies in hypocrisy, I would be a hypocrite? Is this what I am saying? No I did not say this. The Bible said it and by association, God said it. What does it mean to have my conscience seared with a hot iron? If I say something rude, hurtful or mean to you and it bothers me I am sorry I said it), after I do, I still have a conscience, but it was not working right or correctly. If I keep doing this over and over again, my conscience could get seared, and I may never feel bad again that I say rude, mean and hurtful things to you or anyone. This is NOT Freedom of Speech. Oh, I would have character, bad character and judged by my speech, my appearance, my background and perhaps even the color of my skin, but this is neither freedom of speech nor the character good manners makes.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

   How about the ‘Golden Rule’ for social media’s user agreements and policies? How about Big Tech.? Mainstream media? Any business?

Sign that hung above the door of the employee’s entrance to the Acme Sucker Rod Factory in Toledo, Ohio, 1913.

   Can it get any simpler than this, any more clear?

“And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”

Luke 6:31, King James Version

   Common Courtesy? That is a pretty good two-word description of true Christianity.

“Order my steps in thy word:…”

Psalm 119: 133a, KJV

“Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.”

Proverbs 7:3, KJV

   Order? Orders again? Rules? Something or someone has to direct our steps. Sure, we will to walk, but for what purpose? These two verses address freedom of will and by association, freedom of speech. We have to will to be moral and walk with that purpose in mind, our steps directed by someone or something. But we have to do the walking. We have to make the decision to learn and to walk in the truth, in the light and develop this conscience of good manners and doing what is right. Biblically, this is a call to give the truth of divine wisdom a permanent place in the mind and in conduct.

   In Israel, it is not uncommon to write the Ten Commandments on tablets and wear them like rings on their fingers. The tables of our heart are the very place for all of God’s laws to be. The world might do away with Bibles, but they could not do away with the things that are hidden in our heart. Whether you or I believe in God or not, we each are in control of our our lives and responsible for our actions and every single word we write or speak.

   If I like you and you like me and if I agree with you and you agree with me and we speak to each other, that’s easy speech, but it is not the freedom of speech. It is only things outside of our experience and our lives which challenge and grow us up.

   Freedom of speech is not the freedom to hate. That ends with hate speech, but that is not Freedom of Speech. It leads to what is prevalent in our country (the USA, anyway), what we all seem to be familiar with, cancel culture. Words can hurt and they can heal. But incite to riot? Unless someone has a gun to your head, whose mouth and whose feet run to hurt and destroy? Doing whatever you want to do and saying whatever you want to say is your choice or mine to burn up stuff, loot, hurt or worse. Sadly, that is freedom of speech corrupted, but it is still freedom of speech. To censor, restrict, regulate, remove and cancel what we do not agree with may be the ill-conceived idea of freedom of spew or spew speech, but it is not the freedom of speech. Only respecting one another’s equal rights as you and I have, is freedom of speech.

   There is much to be gleaned from each other, no matter what we may believe. Accepting one another’s right to think and believe is freedom of speech. If for no other reason, by allowing all speech and any speech it we can learn how not to speak and act in a civilized and social society. And one more thing, perhaps our good manners can influence or lead bad manners to will to become good manners.

   It was all over the mainstream media. A young man wore a hat, many did not like it. He was confronted by people that ridiculed him and tried to intimidate him. At one point, an older native American man was beating on a drum and singing just inches away from his face. He instantly became infamous and scorched earth to the mainstream media. His high school came under fire. He was ridiculed for being a racist and arrogant and excoriated by the media for smirking, just standing there without speaking and smiling. He got a lawyer. He went to court. He won. He could now basically, purchase his own network. He had the freedom to speak or not to speak. He chose to stand, not speak and smile. What would you call that? I call it good manners.

“A soft answer turneth [turns] away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”

Proverbs 15:11, KJV

    What about  just being kind to one another?

   My sister was given a bracelet years ago, which she wore all the time. It had a line from a poem that I only recently discovered and read in its entirety and to my delight. But I remember my sister’s bracelet and I wrote down the words in my journals and in my Bible, many years ago. I was inspired by them. They moved me. Over the years I have thought of them so often and read them so often that I have unintentionally memorized them. 

“There’s nothing so kingly as kindness, and nothing so royal as truth.”

Alice Cary

   If you would like to read this poem, ‘Nobility’, by Alice Cary, in its entirety, click the following link:

https://sharpgiving.com/101famouspoems/poems/original/073Cary.html?visited=1

   Let us be kind to one another. When and wherever we hear speech that we do not agree with, let us hear it, let us read the words and learn from them. Let us turn away their wrath with soft answers. Let us be example of kindness. We cannot, we must not censor, regulate, restrict or cancel those that have the self-same and equal rights that we have! For freedom is a gift. Freedom leads to change, progress, inventions, innovation, and growth! It is a pursuit towards excellence that in the United States of America, was put into writing, in the Preamble of our Constitution, “In order to form a more perfect [not perfect, but a more perfect] union!”

   Are we a united people? Are we a moral people? To whom or to what compass do we use to guide our steps? what rules do we follow? What orders do we willfully take to mold and remember our thoughts and move our feet? Easy speech moves nothing or no one. Hate speech cannot, should not cancel anyone or anything. It is only the Freedom of Speech that moves mountains. What is it that can unify so great and so diverse a people, but freedom? Who among us has not been given the same gifts as you and I?

  1. created equally
  2. endowed by our creator (or the laws of nature or nature’s God)
  3. certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

   Be kind to one another, for WE are all Free! It is a gift!

Transition

A Moral Issue

By Dahni

© 2020, all rights reserved

January 8th, 2021

   I have stated my position clearly on the 2020 election. Although I appreciate President Trump’s recent commitment towards the peaceful transition of power, I still believe he should immediately resign, for the good of Our Republic.

   Even so, for Twitter, any social media, any media, and any search engine which by the very freedom they all enjoy, decide to censure, suppress, restrict, lockdown or lockout the speech of the President of the United States or anyone, is unacceptable!

Deleting Twitter to the Trashcan

   Anyone siding with such inexcusable actions are unworthy of the very freedom they enjoy. For such reasons, I have deleted my Facebook accounts and pages and groups, over 8 months ago.

   As I now transition myself to delete my Twitter accounts, I encourage any freedom loving person or entity, to do the same.

   I do not do this easily, lightly or quickly.

   In its earlier years, a “tweet” (message), posted on Twitter was limited to 140 characters. This was challenging at first, but I got used to it. As it expanded to the world, Twitter offered something which no other social media did. Those 140 characters allowed users in freedom-less countries, to quickly posts messages of great importance, for all the world to see!

   In time, Twitter expanded their limitations of the characters one could “tweet”, but also, they began to limit who could post and what could be posted. Twitter and other social media enjoyed and enjoys the protection as a ‘platform’ instead of as a ‘publisher’ and could not/cannot be presently sued in the USA. A ‘platform’ was supposed to be to open to almost anyone, providing they adhered to certain civil rules. But when Twitter or any social media (Google search and all mainstream media), censors, monitors, restricts, deletes, locks down and locks out speech which is contrary to their beliefs, political viewpoints or bias, they are no longer a ‘platform’ but arbitrators of what they deem is truth and the final editors of content.

   Like most anyone that uses social media, I used Twitter as a place for my voice and to promote my work and specifically, my book, ‘RESET’ (An UN-alien’s Guide to Resetting Our Republic), and any other related updates, revisions or new work for the future. I post to my Twitter accounts from several means and often from my blogs as this. I do not have a great following. And I will miss Twitter more, than they will ever miss me.

   But the point is, freedom is not free. There is always a cost to acquire it and to keep it.

   But Twitter enjoys this freedom and protection in the USA as it comes from Our government. Our government comes from the Constitution of the United States of America. These freedoms come from the Declaration of Independence, wherein WE are all created equally and are all endowed by Our Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. These came from and presently come from those who fought and fight, died and will die for these and to protect and defend them for all. And many pledged and pledge their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, for these freedoms for themselves, their families, their friends and for the future, for all of us!

   What is more powerful on earth then the desire to live and die free? For this is universal. It is spiritual. It is the gift of God. It is a moral issue. But what can be done, what is legal, with all means available and employed, matter not to an immoral mind and an immoral people. When never do we question what is right and what is moral, we exercise no freedom and freedom is lost, to every immoral mind and to immoral people.

Freedom is a moral issue, for a moral people

   As I transition to delete my Twitter accounts, I must update my websites, blogs and other social media. I will, prior to my last ‘Tweet’, provide other means, for anyone to reach me and to access my work.

The Question of Irregularities

January 5, 2021

The Question of Irregularities

By Dahni

© 2020, all rights reserved

What is the Question?

   WE know that we are sick because, we have symptoms. Traditional medicine tries to give us relief by treating our symptoms. But the symptoms may reappear and even new symptoms appear when the cause is not removed. The same analogy may be used for the health or lack thereof, of our Republic.

   WE are presently a republic divided and how long can WE remain a republic unless, WE are united? But that is not the true question.

   The Question is not who won the presidential election November 3rd, 2020. The Question is not whether there were irregularities in the 2020 election. The Question is not whether there was evidence of these irregularities heard and decided by any court or the United States Supreme Court. The Question is not whether the Supreme Court exercises judicial review or refuses to take a case of one state suing four others and joined by eighteen other states and individuals and without using the words “lack of standing”, refused to take the case. The Question is not whether nine justices had or have the power to decide an election involving millions of voters.

    The question is not have or are local, state and the federal governments involved from the executive, legislative and judicial branches.

An Irregular calendar

   There are irregularities everywhere. How about this strange calendar? It is accurate for January 2021 except for how it looks (each date does fall on the correct day of the week), and the number 13 is missing, that bad luck or as the British called it in 1776, the ‘Knight’s Templar Jinx’. Having routed Washington’s beaten up and beaten down Continental Army and forcing them to Cross the Delaware River December 8th, 1776, they decided not to pursue, fearing bad luck or the “jinx” and decided to winter their own troops in safety on December 13th, 1776, formally announcing it on December fourteenth. That saved Washington and his troops to go on and eventually win the American Revolution. But this is not The Question.

   For quite some time, Washington knew the enlistments would soon expire for many of his troops and he was desperate for reinforcements. Beaten down and the Continental Congress not regularly paying them or providing for their needs, Washington rightfully doubted that many if any of his troops would re-enlist and reinforcements were certainly not forthcoming. Only Thomas Paine was faithful to send his profits from his book, ‘Common Sense’ that kept Washington and his troops going. For quite some time, Washington sent letters to one of his commanders that had about 5,000 troops, for them come and join him. This Commander, General Charles Lee, refused and instead sent letters to the Continental Congress that he would better serve by remaining with his troops, to protect the locals against the British. Lee was younger than Washington, an arrogant and egotistical man that wanted Washington to fail in hopes that his perceived incompetence would force Congress to make him the Commander instead of Washington, even if Washington’s failure meant even Washington’s death. Lee was not going anywhere! Why should he, he already lost 3,000 troops because, their enlistment was up. On December 13th, 1776, Lee went alone, 3 miles closer towards the enemy and was then 20 miles, from them. On 12/13/76, Lee was literally caught with his pants down with a prostitute and captured. Upon Lee’s capture, the command of the 2,000-man force of veteran Continental troops went to Lee’s second, General John Sullivan. He moved Lee’s remaining 2,000 troops in six days, faster and farther than Lee had marched them 75 miles in 23 days, and joined up with Washington. This irregular set of events occurring on Friday the 13th, saved the Revolution. But as irregular as this was, this is not The Question.

   Even the once irregular 13 colonies, banding together that won their freedom and became the first 13 independent and sovereign states of the United States of America is not, The Question.

   The Question is not the Georgia run-off election to decide the U.S. Senate Majority, occurring as this is written, January 5th, 2020.

   The Question is not collusion, fraud, and conspiracies which plagued the past and fester today, from the 2020 election or the legitimacy of the 2016 election.

   The Question is not the rally or the protest occurring in Washington D.C. right at this moment this is written and on January 6th, 2021.

   The Question is not will sufficient numbers challenge the 2020 election when both houses of Congress meet on January 6th, 2021 to certify this election. The Question is not if all or some states submit two slates of electors and decided by vote, which to accept and which to reject. The Question is not if the President of the Senate (the Vice President of the United States), has plenary power to reject all the votes from any state that violated their own constitutions and the Constitution of the United States. The Question is not if the House of Representatives of 465 members could overturn this election of President and The Senate with 100 members overturning this election for Vice President. The Question is not by Congress with 50 votes (one for each state), determining the outcome of this election. The Question is not if these matters are constitutional or non-constitutional. The Question is not if these matters pertain to actual amendments to Our Constitution (legally or not), proposed or may be proposed.

   The Question is not about potential riots or a civil war, depending on what happens on January 6th, 2021.

   The Question is not is “legal fiction”, (“legal”, but “fiction”), involved.

   The Question is, when did all of these things begin to be even possible irregularities, after Independence won after 1776?

   To know the answer to “when were all these things possible”, is to know the cause. When the cause is known and removed, the symptoms will disappear.

    For the cause, WE need to look to 1861-1863 and most importantly, 1863.

   By 1863, The President of the United States had taken over:

The Executive Branch
The Legislative Branch
The Judiciary Branch
Suspended Habeas Corpus
Called for a draft and to enforce it, took over the northern states (eventually the southern and all states), by setting all the states into districts as satellites of Washington D.C.
The People of the states
By signing the Liber Code in 1863 The United States “is” (a singular incorporated nation), invaded the southern states (The United States “are”), the former sovereign states, with its rules of engagement and occupation that could only be canceled by a peace treaty between the nations or the President of, The United States “is”, a singular incorporation of the district states. Neither of these has ever occurred! It is “legal fiction” that WE are still under Marshall Law, the control of the President of the United States “is” and it is as if, what WE know as The American Civil War, has never ended.

   But knowing the true question of these irregularities, the true cause of the sickness of Our Republic, its symptoms remaining because, its cause has not been removed, the greater question is, what are WE going to do about it?

 Our physician is not the President, Vice President and President of the Senate, the 100 senators, the 465 members of the House of Representatives, 9 Supreme Court Justices, any court, local or state government and not even the Constitution! If it is or is not to be, it is up to thee and to me. WE the People are each Our own physician and,

“…Physician, heal thyself…”
from Luke 4:22, King James Version

  It  is up to US, WE the People, to alter or change Our government.

“That 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, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Excerpt From: The Declaration of Independence of The United States of America.

   It is up-to US, WE the People to RESET Our Republic.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The Preamble to The Constitution of The United States of America

   WE were not made to serve the government. WE made government to serve US. WE only have the power and the authority. Our states are only sovereign because, WE the people separately and collectively, are sovereign!

   WE are created equal and endowed by Our Creator with certain UN-alienable rights that among these are, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!

From: The Declaration of Independence of The United States of America.

   WE are cold waters to thirsty souls.

From: Proverbs 25:25

   WE are good news to a far country.

From: Proverbs 25:25

   WE are The Apples of Gold in a picture frame of silver!

From: Proverbs 25: 11

WE are each The Apple of Gold

Note: The 3D like gold apple represent each of Us as WE the people and the green leaf indicates that we are alive and living. We float as independent and sovereign with the Declaration of Independence engraved upon Us and is within us. The silver frame is the Constitution which WE authored, WE created and WE control to magnify, and protect us each, The Apple of Gold, in a Picture of or frame of pure (non-corrupted), Silver.

To Every Patriot & Christian in the United States of America

By Dahni, 1 of WE © 2020, all rights reserved

   To Every Patriot & Christian in the United States of America, it is way past time to wake up! If you have not been awakened and have stayed awake by now, stay asleep! Just stay out of the way! If there be such a thing as the “silent majority”, it is way, way, long past time to be silent anymore! Every one of you, and I and WE, has to take a stand! The time is, NOW!

Evil- Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness on fire in our streets

   Nothing should be clearer than to see the flag of the United States of America being disrespected and burned in our street, in our city of Portland, in our state of Oregon under the interpreted and corrupted idea of the freedom to desecrate! What is freedom and what a right is in this country is, what the Constitution says they are and the state constitutions which are supposed to be in unity with it, ‘The Law of the Land’! Not the President, the Congress or even the Supreme Court can tell you or I or anyone, what is freedom or a right. All they can do is execute the Constitution, legislate laws, which do not conflict with the Constitution, or judge actions that are not constitutional. They have no power to abolish the Constitution or change it so as if it were abolished! Only the people, WE the People can abolish government and institute new government as we believe well, serves our future security and happiness. Nothing should be clearer than to see a Bible or Bibles, being burnt with our flag, the flag of the United States of America disrespected and all burned in our street! Desecrated and burned, in our city of Portland, in our state of Oregon, under the interpreted and corrupted idea of freedom to desecrate and burn! These are actions of EVIL, perpetrated by the insane or greatly influenced by the same!

To Every Patriot in the United States of America

   You, and I and WE all need to read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America. We need to share these with others! Buy copies and give them away! We need to read them, study them, memorize them word-for-word and be able to recite them at a moments notice at any opportunity. We must speak boldly, but not rudely or with the intent to yell down an opposing voice. A soft answer turns away wrath!

   We need to study the history of the Revolutionary War, the outcomes of everyone that pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. We need to know and understand what they fought against and what they fought for, often to the loss of their lives, their fortunes, but not their sacred honor. We need to know and understand that even though all have since died, all that remains is, their sacred honor! Their “sacred honor” is contained in these documents that now are, We the people of the United States of America. We must not cower! We must not be silent!

   And finally, we must understand that regardless of whether or not you are a Christian or a devout follower of any religion or of no religion whatsoever, all of our rights and freedoms have not come from the will of the human mind. Whether or not our founders, all of them men, women and children believed in God or not, they wrote, they signed, they lived and they died, for the protection of divine providence! Call it universal law, international law (laws between and among people), if not divine providence! For if these freedoms and these rights are not to all, they are for none. If human will gave these they are privileges and can be taken, forfeited, bought, sold and trade like common things. Whether the founders believed in God or not, our country was founded upon Judaeo-Christian principles! If this country is to remain a republic We each, each patriot must love this country and all that it represents! We must love and respect, all that are our citizens. We must have respect and show respect for our flag, it’s pledge of allegiance; it’s national anthem, with all due respect, for Liberty and Justice for all, for all! Being mindful of these things will stainless steel the soul and diamond strengthen the resolve that it is only Love that drives out darkness and hate! If even one is denied Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, then there is no ALL, no WE the People! “WE the People” is, in your hands and in mine!

   The time is now!

To Every Christian in the United States of America

   I do not care what church you may or may not attend. I do not care what you value or what the teachings of your particular brand of Christianity may be. If you have confessed with your mouth, the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you are a Christian, PERIOD! We Christians above all citizens of these United States should know that our first amendment right from the Bill of Rights in Our Constitution begins with—

“Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or abridging the free exercise thereof;…”

Excerpt from the US Constitution, Amendment I

   We Christians should know and understand that no religion including our particular beliefs are to be established by law as the ‘only’ religion, but that this allows Christianity to also, not to be prohibited and to be exercised freely. We Christians should know that in the United States, we are free to speak the truth in love.

“But speaking the truth in love,…”

Ephesians 4:15a King James Version (KJV)

   We Christians should know that Liberty is the emancipation from bondage. We Christians should know that—

“Then said Jesus to those Jews [anyone] which believed on him, IF ye [you] continue in my word, THEN are ye [you] my disciples indeed;” “And [then] ye [you] shall [absolutely] KNOW THE TRUTH, and [then] THE TRUTH shall [absolutely not only just set you free, but] MAKE you free.”

John 8:31, 32, KJV

“…where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

II Corinthians 3:17b, KJV

   We Christians should know that where we are, He is and there is Liberty! We Christians should know that through divine providence (the will of God), the United States of America was birthed, so that from here, all people might freely come to know the Word of God, which reveals Jesus Christ and—

“Neither is there salvation [wholeness] in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved [made whole].”

Acts 4:12, KJV

   We Christians should—

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” – The return of Christ

Hebrews 10:25, KJV

   We Christians should know and be like those of ancient We Christians should know and be like those of ancient Thessalonica—

“For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.”

I Thessalonians 1:8, KJV

   Even more so, we Christians should be more nobler than those of Thessalonica like were the Bereans—

“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

Acts 17:11, KJV

   We Christians must not cower in fear, but know—

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Jesus Christ from: John 14:27, KJV

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you [God, in Christ in you], than he [the devil, “the god of this world”] that is in the world.”

I John 4:4, KJV

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

II Timothy 1:7, KJV

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

I John 4:18

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

Romans 8:37, KJV

   We Christians should know our personal adversary—

“In whom the god of this world [the devil] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

II Corinthians 4:4

   We Christians should no more be silent, but know if the culture is to be permeated (changed, transformed; reset), we must speak God’s Word like they did in the first century Church, to the end that—

“So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.”

Acts 19:20

   We Christians must understand all of our rights and freedoms have not come from the will of the human mind, but by the will of God! Whether or not our founders, all of them men, women and children believed in God or not, they wrote, they signed, they lived and they died, for the protection of divine providence! Others call this ‘universal law’, but more accurately, ‘International law’ [between nations – all nations], “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ John 3:16a KJV]. God raised up the United States that all who desire to know, may freely know! But whether our founders believed in God or not, our country was still, founded upon Judaeo-Christian principles!

   If this country is to remain a Constitutional republic, we each, each patriot and Christian, must— Go, Stand and Speak the truth anywhere, to anyone and anytime!

“Go, stand and speak in the temple [anywhere, to anyone, anytime and all the time] to the people all the words of this life.”

Acts 5:20, KJV

   And finally, we the Christians of the United States of America should know above all our citizenry—

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord;…”

Psalm 33:12a, KJV

   Your responsibility and mine as Christians is far, far greater than all of the other patriot-citizens combined!

    The Time is Now!

   Take a Stand!

Comfort Yourselves

Comfort Yourselves

By Dahni
© 2020, all rights reserved

Comfort Yourselves?” Yes, this is the purpose of this post that you and I can “Comfort Ourselves”, but…

…But sometimes, before I can tell you what I want to tell you and then tell you and then, tell you what I told you (repetition is important), something has to come first. Sometimes, the crap or the cobwebs have to be cleared out, before anything else can be communicated. Such is our times.

Thirteen, the number 13, freaks people out because, they are superstitious. Some buildings don’t have a thirteenth floor. How stupid is it to have 13 floors in a building, but avoid calling it the 13th floor and instead calling it the 14th floor? If my math is correct (not the new modern core), the building would still have thirteen floors.

Oh, there is even a name for this phobia, often combining the number 13 with Friday, or Friday the 13th.

Fear of the number 13: A morbid fear of the number 13.

“Also known as triskaidekaphobia. Written reference to the superstitious fear of the number thirteen dates to the late 1800s. Its origin is conjectural (a matter of guesswork). The term triskaidekaphobia first appeared in the early 1900s. It was derived from treiskaideka, the Greek word for thirteen + phobia, fear of = a fear of thirteen.”

Excerpt from a medical definition https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=20284

Not me! I ain’t afraid of no thirteen! 🙂

I am OK with thirteen and I was born on the 13th day of the month of December. I do not consider 13 to be unlucky or that I am unlucky because, I was born on that day. Actually, I’m kind of glad I was born! 🤗

Numbers in scripture or biblical numerology, have two definitions, for the number 13. It can be apostasy (a falling away), but it is also used as atonement or what I like to think of as, at-one-ment. That reminds me of words like unity and united and that’s what the thirteen colonies were endeavoring to do, unify, be united.

“By signing the Declaration of Independence, the delegates were putting their lives on the line. If they were to lose the war for independence, then the British government would execute them in a very painful and nasty way. Thus, although we do not know if Benjamin Franklin actually said, “we must all hang together, or … we shall all hang separately,” it is likely that that idea, was in the minds of the delegates that day in July of 1776.”

Excerpt from: https://www.historycentral.com/Revolt/stories/Hang.html

Still, doubting the possibility of succeeding and knowing the likely consequences of signing that document, they pledged to each other and to their “cause”, their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Today, many people can’t even pledge allegiance to the symbol of what they secured for their posterity (you and I), expect everything to be given to them from the womb to the tomb, and neither have any sacred honor nor know what that is.

But the circle of stars represented their togetherness, a united front, a unity of purpose. A five-pointed star represented each colony. Five, biblically means, “grace and miracles”. It was certainly by grace and miracles, that they won their independence against the greatest military force on land and at sea in the world in the day. They knew that they really did not stand even a slim chance of success!

Stars represent heaven.

The blue background was symbolic of a new continent, a new country, independence, freedom to think, speak, choose and act.

The red stripes represent life and even blood, for the life of the flesh is in the blood.

The white stripes represent heaven again, purity, the reliance on divine providence, Liberty— “the emancipation from bondage.” Every man, woman and child of the 13 colonies, were all subjects to the King of England and all their property and possessions, were owned by the King. They were all slaves! That’s what Liberty is for, “the emancipation from bondage.”

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and “…where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

II Corinthians 3:17 King James Version (KJV)

With just three colors (red, white and blue), and the 13 stars and the 13 stripes, this flag and all our subsequent flags (adding new states until our present number of fifty), represent and are symbolic of, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! It is Liberty which makes both Life and the Pursuit of Happiness, possible. And thirteen is the number for atonement (at-one-ment), Unity of Purpose, those United Colonies, those United original thirteen States, and these today, The United States of America.

But this is not what some people think and believe, when they see a flag, with thirteen stars. The current trend is, it is a symbol of the times of slavery. This flag offends some people. To be honest, many of the same people are offended by any display of the flag of the USA. Well, if a flag can offend them, can’t I be offended that they are offended? It is a free country. I am offended, and I am offended by stupidity and ignorance! I hold parents and guardians, educators and what I refer to as the mass hysteria (mass media), for perpetuating such stupidity and ignorance! But ultimately, every individual is still responsible, for their own every word and all their individual and total deeds.

The US flag does NOT represent slavery, that’s in your head, if this is what you think. It is not a racist symbol. You would be more of a racist if you think it is, racist. Was there slavery in the 1700’s, when this flag with 13 stars was first sewn and used to represent the original thirteen colonies?

Was there slavery at the time this flag was first sewn and flown? Yes! Were they then or are WE now perfect or was it in “order to form a more perfect union?” I have already told you what this flag and our present flag represents. I will write it again— Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!

You can “comfort yourselves” with these truths.

A fact is, there were once 13 colonies. Another fact is, those 13 colonies became, the original first 13 states. Another fact is, right now, there are 50 states. Those are facts. They are NOT truths, what is true or the truth.

Then or now, this flag still represents the truths, what is true, the truth that all are created equal and that all are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights (rights which can’t be bought, sold, traded, bartered, forfeited, seized or taken), and that among those rights are: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!

I can’t help you if you are stupid and want to remain stupid. But I can help you if you are ignorant. I just did. You cannot hide behind ignorance anymore or pretend that you didn’t know. If you believe me, then your can “comfort yourselves!” If you don’t believe me (and I hope you don’t), I hope you have the intellectual curiosity and look these things up for yourselves, for you!

May we move on now to “Comfort Yourselves?”

Moving on.

Comfort Yourselves!”

Many people are now concerned, full of anxiety, trepidation and maybe are afraid that this nation is not gonna’ last much longer. Pandemics, riots, murder, violence, oppression, information overload, injustice, fake news, conspiracies and theories, censure and on and on, are straining the seams of the very flag, which represents this republic. Are our times any different than at any time in past? I don’t believe so. Just because these things are happening, should we throw out the dirty baby (our flag, our republic), with the dirty bathwater (filthy words and deeds)? Of course not! Remember, “In order to form a more perfect union?” It never was perfect, it is not now perfect and it never will be perfect. It is in constant motion forward, like our flag waving in the breeze and the right foot of the statue of Liberty 🗽 in mid stride, always moving forward. It is our goal. It is to move forward, not to retreat. It is to progress. I for one am not concerned, full of anxiety, trepidation or fear about the future of our nation, our republic!!! Why? Or why not? I believe in 13!

Comfort Yourselves!”

I just keep thinking 13, thirteen colonies. Only about 13% of the population fought against England and often against their own families and friends. Most were just common folk, farmers, undisciplined, and untrained, alcoholics, drug addicts and yes, even dark skinned slaves, some that freely chose, to be involved! Think about that! Out of every hundred people, only 13 fought against a vastly superior force that often outnumbered them. The thirteen fought an enemy where often your own friends and family that either would not help in the least or turn you in or kill you, if they could. The 13 fought for them too! And even though slaves may have not been numbered among the population, those 13 fought for them as well! What do you suppose would have happened to the slaves, had the 13 lost? What were the British doing with slaves they brought and caught? They purposely and intentionally infected many with smallpox and used them as biological weapons, to contaminate and kill whole communities, whenever and wherever possible. Who brought the slaves to the colonies in the first place? But in the end, you can’t steal, kill and destroy an idea, whose time has come! It’s time had come!

You can’t steal, kill and destroy an idea, whose time has come!

I am confident, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, will not be undone! It only took about 13 to secure it. It only takes about 13 to keep it! I’m in! Are you in? If so, that makes 12. There are more, more than enough out there!

Fire burns. Fire also purifies! One can spit on our flag, tear it down and burn it up, but you or no one can steal, kill and destroy the truths that our flag, this nation, this republic is for— Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!

I am confident, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness will not be undone!

I count myself as one of the 13. I’m still here. I’m still breathing.

Comfort Yourselves!

Tearing Down Liberty?

Tearing Down Liberty?

By Dahni
© 2020, all rights reserved

Before you tear down Liberty, you should know what she stands for; what she strides for. If you are a supporter of or a participant in protests erroneously so-called, the words “tear down Liberty”, should shock you to the core! Think about those words. Having the liberty, to tear down liberty?

“Before you tear down Liberty, you should know what she stands for; what she strides for.”
-dahni-

I can think of no greater example, anything clearer and so familiar, than the Statue of Liberty, in New York City Harbor.

In our country, there were two revolutions. One in 1776, was to prove to the then powers that were that all are created equal and righted with Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. In 1861, it was to put these universal truths into practice. We may be on the verge of a third revolution, to determine like president Abraham Lincoln wrote in the Gettysburg Address, whether or not “…of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth” IF, “…any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure.”

When the once defeated Continental Army were run out of Philadelphia by the British, they would have only needed to follow the bloody footprints left by feet in the snow by Washington’s troops that walked barefooted or with rags wrapped around their feet, to have ended that first revolution. But emerging from the cold and devastating winter of Valley Forge, the same British soldiers could not believe these were the same, they had so easily defeated in Philadelphia. But the Continental Army defeated the British in Yorktown, and General Cornwallis through his emissary, offered his sword and surrendered. But it was the French fleet in the harbor, which prevented the British from escape, the essence of the end, of the American Revolution.

By 1865, the second American Revolution had ended with the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, prohibiting slavery, anywhere in the United States of America. Inspired by this, a French man held a dinner party with guests including a sculptor. The topic of conversation was the inspiration from America which inspired the French Revolution against Napoleon Bonaparte. Talk centered on the historic ties and love of liberty the two nations had in common. There was “a genuine flow of sympathy,” between France and America, “the two sisters.” as Laboulaye noted. Laboulaye commented in light of our centennial, just 11 years hence:

“Wouldn’t it be wonderful if people in France gave the United States
a great monument as a lasting memorial to independence
and thereby showed that the French government
was also dedicated to the idea of human liberty?”

Auguste Bartholdi was the sculptor attending that dinner party.

Bartholdi was a small man in comparison to his vision. He had wanted to build a great statue as a lighthouse. He had wanted to do this work in conjunction of the opening of the Suez Canal. He envisioned a young dark skinned peasant woman with her face covered, indicative of the religion of Islam.

The statue would recall the pharaonic Lighthouse of Alexandria, another of the seven wonders of the ancient world, and in appearance drew heavily on yet another ancient “wonder” – the Colossus of Rhodes, which in tradition appears carrying a flame, thought to serve as a beacon. Her motto was to be, “Egypt (or Progress) Carrying the Light to Asia.” The project was never realized, as there just was not enough money to it.

Bartholdi was inspired again, for such a work, for the work, for the United States. He had wanted its dedication to coincide with our centennial in 1876. An organization was formed to coordinate funding for France in giving the statue to the United States and the United States in funding her base and pedestal. Sketches and perhaps small bronze statues exist which originally offered the visage of a young dark-skinned woman with broken shackles on her hands and feet, but was abandoned as it was considered too offensive and too painful a reminder. She would be more akin to the ancient Greek and Roman goddesses like Libertas the goddess over freeing of the slaves and the oppressed. Columbia, the goddess-like personification of the United States, beginning around 1738 would be its other half, symbolically.

The author’s words were inscribed on a bronze plate, “The New Colossus”, a sonnet by American poet Emma Lazarus. She wrote it to try and help raise funds for the base and its pedestal. But funds were not forthcoming.

Congress failed to approve any further funding. What had been raised had already been spent, and the work had not begun. The president vetoed the project. The governor of New York vetoed funding it. The wealthy gave little to nothing and said nothing. The public was apathetic to the whole idea. Many said, “let New York fund it.” But it was never intended to belong to New York or any state, but all of the United States. The land upon which it was to be built, was approved by General Sherman and belonged to the federal government, the people of the United States. But due to lack of funding and lack of public interest, it almost never came to be.

A Hungarian immigrant, had fought in the War among the States, then became a journalist and rose to become a newspaper publisher. His namesake was, ‘The St. Louis Post Dispatch’. He bought another paper and decided to name it, ‘The World’ hoping to appeal to the common masses. He decided to use this paper to try and fund ‘The Statue’. He promised to publish every name that donated and to shame the wealthy and the elite that would not. Grandmas sent in dollar bills and children broke into their piggy banks and sent in pennies. The funds were raised. The base and pedestal was constructed. France shipped ‘The Statue’ over in many crates. It was assembled and Lady Liberty, was placed upon her pedestal.

In a copper box within the cornerstone, there was enclosed:

• a copy of the United States Constitution
• George Washington’s Farewell Address
• twenty bronze medals of Presidents up through Chester A. Arthur [including Washington, Monroe, Jackson, Polk, Buchanan, Johnson and Garfield, who were all Freemasons]
• copies of New York City newspapers
• a portrait of Bartholdi
• a copy of ‘Poem on Liberty’ by E. R. Johnes
• a list on parchment, of the Grand Lodge officers.

By traditional ceremony, the cornerstone was then tested and being found, square, level and plumb, the Deputy Grand Master completed the work by applying the mortar and by having the stone lowered firmly into place. The Grand Master then struck three blows with the gavel and declared the stone duly laid. The elements of consecration, corn, wine and oil, were next presented. The corn is poured as an emblem of nourishment and abundance; the wine as an emblem of refreshment, comfort and hospitality and the oil as an emblem of light, joy, happiness, comfort and anointing.The cornerstone of the pedestal was completed, August 5, 1884. Another plaque was placed at the cornerstone ascribed and attested by the Grand Mason that sealed it and to the distinguished quests and peoples represented on this historic day.

The namesake of the Pulitzer Prize, Joseph Pulitzer should be posthumously awarded a medal, “For Distinguished and Meritorious Public Service.” It was he and his papers that had raised the necessary funds in order for ’The Statue’, to have been completed.

“Liberty Enlightening the World” was dedicated, October 28th, 1886.

• Her 7 spires of her radiate crown- the seven continents of earth and the seven seas which connect them all to together and could bring them to the shores of Liberty.
• Her torch, held aloft by her outstretched right arm- “Liberty Enlightening the World”, the light of knowledge, a beacon in the darkness to all that would desired to be free,  come, come!
• Her face- is perhaps a composite of the sculptor’s mother and a model he would later marry? But a combination of the beauty and gentleness of a woman and the sternness and potential for wrath, should any enemy from without or from within, threaten any of her children, any one of us, WE the People! And as a woman, it is prophetic in a sense of the woman’s right to vote, more progress, in the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.
• Her left arm holds a document- wherein is ascribed July 4th, followed by the Roman Numerals for the year, 1776, when the ideas of all are created equal and all are endowed by their creator with such rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, were written into the Constitution and became the Law of the Land.
• Her stola or toga- our republic similar, to the republic of ancient Rome.
• Her left foot- tramples the broken chains of slavery, bondage and oppression.
• Her right foot- in mid stride is not stationary. It is progress. She is ever moving until, all that want to be free, are free!

Now in 2020, perhaps we are in or on the verge of a third revolution? If you support those that in the name of justice and protest, who by liberty tear down liberty in the looting, defacing and destruction of private and public property, assault and bodily harm, then you are in support of criminal acts, criminal if not of law, then at least of humanity.

If you are a participant that in the name of justice and protest, who by liberty tear down liberty in the looting, defacing and destruction of private and public property, assault and bodily harm, you are a criminal if not of law, then at least of humanity.

By liberty, if you tear down liberty, with the proposition of erasing all offending history, you are plunging yourselves and attempting to draw others, back into the darkness from which we rose and some are still trying to rise from. The opposite of all of this is, to educate, which is, to lead out of darkness and into the light of the liberty, you say you are seeking. To support or to tear down liberty is, to tear down Liberty.

What she stands for; what she strides for

A Word Fitly Spoken

February 27, 2020

Short url to this post: https://wp.me/pGfx1-J1

A Word Fitly Spoken
(an introduction)

By Dahni
© 2020, all rights reserved

I would here like to set before You, “a word fitly spoken” or as it is here, written. If I am successful, You will understand:

Some interesting things I found about a verse of scripture in the Bible, from which these words came and come

A letter from one man to another that would later be on opposing sides, during the American Civil War

One Man’s response to the letter, he had received from the other

How the Declaration of Independence & The Constitution are not separate, but unified

How one man, had he lived long enough, I believe would have RESET Our government

How I came up with the title and cover art for my book

How You are seen as and as You are, an apple of gold, emphasized, magnified and protected by a silver frame

To begin, the word “word” could be singular and it could also be used to include other or many words (plural). Words are made up of individual characters or letters from an alphabet. They are symbols. They are images. They are used so that the hearer or the reader can understand what is spoken or read by something they are familiar with, something they could picture in their minds. What then is, “a word fitly spoken”?

This post, all of my research and the title of my up and coming book, all begin from a single verse of scripture from the Bible. To Follow here, I will quote this verse, from the King James Version (KJV).

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.”

Proverbs 25:11 KJV

Commentaries refer to the word “fitly” as the right time. But even “fitly” works with that, as the word fits with the right time and place and to the right person or persons. The word “like” shows that a comparison is about to be made. This right word, words, images given at the right time, for the right person or persons, fit perfectly together with, “apples of gold in pictures of silver!”

Yellow Apples of Gold

Scholars have argued for centuries over the meaning of “apples of gold.” Were these golden apples, as in artifacts made of pure gold and made to look like apples?

Gold Apples

Were they real apples, golden or yellow apples? Were they some other fruit?

Yellow or Gold Oranges

Yellow or Gold Quince

Most agree that the “pictures” were trays, bowls or baskets of silver, perhaps elaborately engraved by a master silversmith or artisan. You can also think of these “pictures” as, picture frames, silver picture frames, adorning some work of art. The meaning is clear that the pictures, trays, bowls, baskets, or frames were to enhance, call attention to, set off, emphasize and magnify the gold. Here is another translation of Proverbs 25:11—

“The right word spoken at the right time is as beautiful as gold apples in a silver bowl.”

Proverbs 25:11 New Century Version (NCV)

Gold and silver are both metals. Both are valuable. Both are still used as currency, all over the world. Gold is not only more valuable than silver, brighter and more illustrious, it weighs more than silver. Even so, polished silver will reflect the gold it holds. Gold is weightier. And as an analogy, gold carries more weight in a matter, than does silver. You may also think of it as silver, serving the gold and not the gold the silver.

“From Strong’s Concordance of the Bible, the Hebrew word given is תַּפּוּחַ tappûwach, tap-poo’-akh; an apple (from its fragrance), i.e. the fruit or the tree (probably included others of the pome order, as the quince, the orange, etc.):—apple (tree).”

Reference: Strong’s Concordance, H5301

Some have suggested that the fruit of Proverbs 25:11 are, apricots, also golden or yellow. And these too, give off a pleasing fragrance and attract many forms of life. And they still grow and can be found all over the area.

Yellow or Gold Apricots

“Of all the minerals mined from the Earth, none is more useful than gold. Its usefulness is derived from a diversity of special properties. Gold conducts electricity, does not tarnish, is very easy to work, can be drawn into wire, can be hammered into thin sheets, alloys with many other metals, can be melted and cast into highly detailed shapes, has a wonderful color and a brilliant luster. Gold is a memorable metal that occupies a special place in the human mind.”

Excerpt from: https://geology.com/minerals/gold/uses-of-gold.shtml

Besides jewelry, nuggets and ingots (gold bars), used for special occasions, something “backed by gold”, and investments, gold is used in almost every device we use today. From computers and laptops, pads, cell phones and our TV’s, they all use gold. Hopefully, you will never have the experience of your vehicle’s airbag deploying, but thankfully, its reliability, should your life depend on it, is due to, gold! Gold is used in the medical industry for devices, diagnosis and even treatment. It is still used by dentists. Gold is expensive, not just because of its beauty, but because, it is so valuable!

Silver is valuable as well. Silver is often combined with gold to strengthen the gold. Bare that in mind, “silver strengthens gold”. But silver has many uses as well. I will only mention that silver has purification properties. In short, silver purifies. And one last thing I found out about silver is, if citric acid (from the fruit we have been discussing here), is mixed with silver, it becomes colloidal silver, known for its purification and healing qualities, even taken internally (orally). Some research I found proposes that juice from these fruits may have actually been poured from pitchers of silver into drinking vessels (cups), made from silver. It may have been possible that people may have consumed, some percentage of colloidal silver? But, I think we are starting to understand, whatever the “gold apples” were from Proverbs 25:11, they were real fruit. Don’t forget the word “aroma”. I’m sure real gold has a smell, but not like fruit.

Proverbs 25:11 is in the book of Proverbs (literally “wise sayings). King Solomon wrote it. He was the son of King David and Bathsheba. His father David, had the vision for building the first temple in Jerusalem, but Solomon built it. Under his reign, Israel enjoyed relative peace, great wisdom, prosperity and health. Emissaries leaving for their countries with great gift-treasures from Israel, returned home to tell others how great Solomon was and how great the Kingdom of Israel was. One Queen of Sheba, did not believe what she heard and saw and had to go see for herself. She found it even far greater than anything she had been told or shown! And a point here is, it has always been God’s will that “above all things,” (III John 2), His people prosper and be in good health!

Returning to the word “gold” for a moment, the “apples of gold”, could not have been made of real gold and made to look like apples or some other fruit. Because of the word “aroma” associated with them as from a tree, an orchard or the fruit itself, it was actually, real edible fruit!

When this began, we saw a word and words are characters, letters of an alphabet, symbols and thus, an image and images. An orientilism— stop! Before so many became so afraid of offending anyone and political correctness was a thing, the Orient, for centuries, was anyplace east of the Mediterranean Sea. The Occident was, anyplace west of the Mediterranean Sea. But an orientilism, customs, mannerisms or cultural things, were things familiar to the people of the time and area.

This area is still known to have hot days and very cool nights. Hospitality was very important. It still is. So now, I would like You to I-Magine (imagine). And the root of that word is, “image”. Get this image or these images into your mind—

You have been walking for some time and it is a very hot day. Your eyes are drawn to an oasis, perhaps an orchard? As you move towards it closer and closer to seek some cool relief, some rest and refreshment, you can detect the sweet fragrance of fruit, wafting through the gentle cool breeze. Once within the orchard you are met by your welcoming host or hostess, with beautiful and delectable apples (or some fruit), that look like yellow gold and are in baskets, bowls or trays of silver. The apples are reflected in the silver.

So, putting this all together, the right word and right words at the right time, for the right people, all fit together when compared with apples of gold in pictures (trays, bowls, baskets etc.), of silver. The greater truth, this spiritual truth, this “wise saying”, is conveyed by something familiar, something shared among hosts (servants) and guests (the served), the culinary delight of enjoying the aroma and eating fruit, beautifully presented and reflected on trays, baskets or bowls of silver.

Hot, tired, thirsty and hungry? What a feast to your eyes to behold such apples or some other fruit, yellow-gold in appearance, reflected and magnified on pictures, trays or bowls of silver! What a feast to your nose to smell the fruit, anticipating tasting it. What a feast to the touch, holding the fruit in your hand. What a feast to your ears as you bite down into the fruit. What a feast to your taste and perhaps your touch again as perhaps some of the juice rolls down your chin. How refreshing the cool fruit. How it quenches your thirst and fills your hungry. What a feast to your soul. Real fruit, a real experience, how this “fits” and fills the memory. This is a word or words (images), “fitly spoken!”

Now let us explore some letter-exchange between two men in opposition to one another, but had in common, “a word(s) fitly spoken.”

When Abraham Lincoln was elected the first Republican president of the United States, on November 6, 1860, he received no votes from nine southern states. This was like what Lincoln called in 1858 the “crisis” of the American “house divided” coming to a head.

A U.S. Congressman from Georgia, Alexander H. Stephen publicly gave a speech containing the following, on November, 14, 1860.

“When I look around and see our prosperity in every thing, agriculture, commerce, art, science, and every department of education, physical and mental, as well as moral advancement, and our colleges, I think, in the face of such an exhibition, if we can, without the loss of power, or any essential right or interest, remain in the Union, it is our duty to ourselves and to posterity to—let us not too readily yield to this temptation—do so. Our first parents, the great progenitors of the human race, were not without a like temptation when in the garden of Eden. They were led to believe that their condition would be bettered—that their eyes would be opened—and that they would become as gods. They in an evil hour yielded—instead of becoming gods, they only saw their own nakedness. I look upon this country, with our institutions, as the Eden of the world, the paradise of the universe.”

Alexander H. Stephens
Excerpt from: Stephens, Alexander (1860). ‘The Assertions of a Secessionist’.
New York: Loyal Publication Society. p. 6. Retrieved June 1, 2016.

Likely from this speech, Lincoln wrote to Stephens, less than a month later, on December 22, 1860, to assuage his fears about the incoming administration:

“Do the people of the South really entertain fears that a Republican administration would, directly, or indirectly, interfere with their slaves, or with them, about their slaves? If they do, I wish to assure you, as once a friend, and still, I hope, not an enemy, that there is no cause for such fears.”

Abraham Lincoln
Excerpt: from a letter to Alexander H. Stephens November 14, 1860

Stephens responded to Lincoln in a letter eight days later on, December 30th, 1860.

“A word fitly spoken by you now would be like ‘apples of gold in pictures of silver.”

Stephens quoted from Proverbs 25:11, to persuade Lincoln that a public statement from the president-elect would help greatly in the mounting crisis of the divided country. A student of the Bible in his own right, Lincoln reflected on Stephens’s biblical reference and, in a note to himself, used the “apples of gold” reference to clarify the connection between America’s constitutional union and the principle of “Liberty to all.” This became known as ‘Fragment on the Constitution and Union (1861)—The Purpose of the American Union’.

Not long after this exchange between these two men, Stephens would become the Vice President of The Confederate States of America, in February of 1861. At the end of the Civil War, he was charged with treason, held in prison for five months, then released and went on to serve as governor of the State of Georgia, until the day he died. So from this, I saw it is not so important who, what, where, when, why or how a word or words (images), are spoken or written as it is the word or words themselves that make them, “a word fitly spoken!”

But Lincoln used The Declaration of Independence as “apples of gold” and Our Constitution, as the “pictures” (a basket, a tray, a picture frame), “of silver”. In this same work, Lincoln said that the apple (You), was not made to serve the silver (the Constitution), but the Constitution was made to serve, You. This was and is, a word or words (images), “fitly spoken!”

This is but one of several reasons why,  I believe, had Lincoln not been assassinated, he would have RESET the Constitution (government), back to ordinary (original), occasions, prior to 1861.

And another reason I believe Lincoln would have set everything alright, comes from his first Inaugural address. I will just quote just, the very last line of his address—

“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature. “

Excerpt from: Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address, Monday, March 4, 1861

And still yet another reason I believe Lincoln would have taken the “Extraordinary occasions” clause of the Constitution he had invoked and put it back into ordinary occasions into the Constitution, was from ‘The Gettysburg Address’—

“Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate — we cannot consecrate — we cannot hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. 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 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.”

President Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

And again, another reason I believe Lincoln would have canceled the Conscription Act and the Lieber Code, both of 1863, restoring Our Constitutional Republic, can be seen from his second inaugural address—

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

Excerpt from: Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, March 4, 1865

If these reasons are not all there is, this is my final reason why, I believe Lincoln would have ended “legal fiction” and restored all three branches of government, to their co-equal status, restored the states and all the people, to their Constitutional and God given Unalienable rights. This is simply seen in how Lincoln wanted Lee and his men treated, when they surrendered.

On April 9th, 1865, in the parlor of the Wilmer McLean home, two generals met with their staffs, at one o’clock in the afternoon. This was the same McLean who owned property In Manassas, VA, where the Civil War had first started, thought to have only lasted a short-time, but endured for four years at the cost of many lives, equal to all wars since, all included and up to, the first year of the Vietnam War.

General Robert E. Lee surrendered his 28,000 troops to General Ulysses S. Grant. Having sent a message to President Lincoln that Lee was intending to surrender, he asked the president how he wanted to treat this. Lincoln quickly responded, “Go easy on them!” When Lee asked for terms, Grant quickly wrote out the following:

All officers and men were to be pardoned, and they would be sent home with their private property–most important, the horses, which could be used for a late spring planting. Officers would keep their side arms, and Lee’s starving men would be given Union rations.

Even though more conflicts continued until the end of 1865, Lee’s surrender effectively took all the fire out of the Confederacy and the Civil War ended, for all practical purposes.

But we will may never know if the man that took over the Executive, Legislative, and Judiciary branches, the states and all the people, would have RESET all or not because, on April 14th, 1865, a bullet rang out. Well-known stage actor John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States. It was during his attendance of the play, ‘Our American Cousin at’ Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C. Lincoln died the following day at 7:22 am, April 15th, 1865, in the Petersen House opposite the theater.

Instead of a restoration, and UNdivide, a RESET, a reclamation, the ending of Martial Law, and “legal fiction”, all of these have continued to this day as if, (“legal fiction”), the Civil War never ended! And thus, this division (intentional or not), has become a mindset, a facade, “legal fiction”, not really real, and government de facto (“as a matter of fact”), and not government de jure (“pure law”). Today, 155 years after, 1865, these things continue, as if, (“legal fiction”), the American Civil War is still taking place! You may not agree, but just understanding this, is to me, “a word (or words), fitly spoken (or written)!”

Since Lincoln could not and therefore, did not RESET Our Republic, it leaves US, WE the People to UNdivide and reclaim what has always been Yours, mine, and Ours! And that is, “a word (or words), fitly spoken (or written)!”

So, so what does the title and cover art of my book have to do with “a word (or words), fitly spoken?” How does it compare with “apples of gold in pictures (picture frames), of silver?”

The title, ‘Apple of Gold in a Picture of Silver’, takes all of these things above, into account. What Solomon wrote 1,000’s of years ago, Abraham Lincoln took from a letter from Alexander Stephens, and saw The Declaration of Independence as “apples of gold” and The Constitution as “pictures (picture frame), of silver. He saw them as not separate documents, but unified and unifying. From his work, ‘Fragment of the Constitution’ I saw these things too. But I saw something else as well. I was able to reduce the apples of gold and pictures of silver down to their least common denominator. The Constitution is, the picture frame of silver, the reason for government. The Declaration of Independence is, the purpose of government. And that purpose is, You! You are, this Apple of Gold!

Behind You is a frame of silver. On the front of this frame is the entire text, of The Constitution of the United States. The word “We” is gold and appears to be three-dimensional, as if freely floating above the rest of the text. This word “We” is the very first word and part of the preamble to Our Constitution. This is, the reason of government. And that reason is, to ensconce and protect and serve and emphasize and magnify its object, its purpose, You. You are, the Apple of Gold!

The apple has been purposefully and intentionally made to appear as if, it were made of real gold, to emphasize your preciousness and innumerable, immeasurable value! But there is a green leaf growing from its stem. This is to show that You are both alive and living!

Over the apple is the entire text of the Declaration of Independence, the purpose for the government. And you are this purpose, for You are created equal and are endowed by your creator with certain UNalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, Your Happiness. You alone are “endowed with” everything You need to grow, to sustain, and to maintain, flourish and prosper. And your ‘seed’ is within you to continue or propagate Your government, alter it, change it or even form new government.

The apple appears to be floating free from all restraints, three-dimensional almost, upon the frame of silver. This is because, You alone are FREE and You alone, are the power and authority of government limited! It is Your right to alter, change, or abolish the government, if and whenever it becomes destructive of its bounds (its limits). And You are FREE to institute new government, as You deem appropriate to effect, Your Happiness and Safety! You, as this apple of gold, have chosen and choose to float freely over, yet in unity with the frame of silver, Your Republic constituted, bound and limited!

You are, this Apple of Gold!

This entire image appears on the cover page of the book as if, it is three-dimensional. A gold book plate is centered below this apple of gold in a frame of silver and it appears three-dimensional as well and contains the title of the book. The rest of the cover is period wallpaper and the entire cover is as if, it was actually hanging on some wall in your home.

This Ladies and Gentlemen, is a “word fitly spoken” or written. This singular word or collection of words, are symbolic. They are images. They are something familiar with the original. The time is right, this is the right place and You are the right person. You are like an apple of gold because, You are this apple of gold!

Above, beneath and all around You is, the collective individual apples of gold and the singular limited government is, to serve You, from the word “We”. For you and all the apples that are now or ever were, have pledged or pledge to you their lives, fortunes and sacred honor! One for All and All for One! Together, UNdivided and thus United, WE are the People, with all the power and authority to protect and serve You and each one of US, WE the People!

More than what Dr. Benjamin Franklin said at the beginning of the American Revolution, that if they did not all hang together (stand together), they would all hang (literally), separately, IF WE do not magnify, protect and serve You, WE all will fail! It would be far, far better that all of US fail, if all of US fail to protect and serve YOU!

You are this this object familiar, this image—

A word fitly spoken like an apple of gold in picture frame of silver!

If You think or believe that our founders did not believe in God and rely on Divine Providence, that You are not endowed by Your creator with certain UNalienable rights, then You need to think again and believe what has always been Yours.

From The Declaration of Independence—

“…to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them…”

“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.”

”We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States,…”

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

This is the sole purpose to UNdivide, and the only possible reason, to unify, to be UNited. And it is, for YOU!

If You do not know and believe that You are the reason for government, then You need to learn and believe that if Your rights do not come from God, they are not UNalienable! If not UNalienable, then they are alienable and subject to the opinions, privileges, begging, borrowing, barter, forfeiture and seizure, at the whim of other like-blooded and imperfect human beings.

If You do not understand and believe that the Declaration of Independence is part of Constitution and the Constitution is part of The Declaration of Independence, and they are together Unified, then You need to illuminate Yourself that You are an Apple of Gold! And You are the power and authority of the government! And the government, the picture frame of silver, is empowered by You and authorized by You, to protect, magnify and serve You!

From the preamble to the Constitution, it is unified with the Declaration—

“…secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…”

The “blessings of Liberty” are, Your life, Your Liberty and Your Pursuit of Happiness!

From the close of the Constitution, it is unified with the Declaration —

“…done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven…”

You, are the word and words “fitly spoken” (or written). You are the Apple of Gold. You empower and authorize the government (the silver picture frame), so that You may rest, cool, refresh, purify and heal, be protected, magnified and served! All fit perfectly together, at the right place, and the right time, for the right person. Now is that time. You are the right person! And You are—

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.”

Proverbs 25:11 KJV

And now that You know Who You are and what You are, what are You going to do about it?

Impeachment (a remedy) Part 1 of 2

By Dahni

There have now been four presidents not three (as presently believed), the House of Representatives have supposedly impeached. There have only ever been two trials in the Senate (now the third is about to begin), but thus far, no president has ever been convicted by the 2/3 majority of senators voting to convict, as required by the US Constitution. And it appears that the present will not lead to conviction either. It does make you wonder why impeachment is ever brought up in the first place??? What does the Constitution say about impeachment?

“The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.”

Article I, Section 3.6, The U.S. Constitution

“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Article II, Section 4, The U.S. Constitution

“The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.”

Article I, Section 2.5, The U.S. Constitution

“Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.”

Article I, 3.7, The U.S. Constitution

“Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behavior, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”

Article I, Section 5.2, The U.S. Constitution

“The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any State, the Trial shall be at such Place or Places as the Congress may by Law have directed”

Article III, Section 2.3,The U.S. Constitution

An Impeachment trial is to be tried by the Senate, with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presiding (not sitting as a judge or to judge for dismissal, conviction or acquittal). The senators are NOT jurors, but Senators that vote for dismissal, conviction or acquittal and must concur with 2/3 of a majority of Senators voting. Senators (2/3 majority), are the collective judge(s), of an impeachment trial and may actually overturn the Chief Justice, provided that a simple majority of sworn or affirmed judges (senators), concur.

On all other matters except for an impeachment trial, if there is a 50/50 vote, the Vice President may cast the deciding vote. But in the case of an impeachment trial, the Vice President of the United States would NOT be a deciding vote or determine a simple majority because, it would be 51 votes to 51 (including the ruling of the presiding Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

An ‘Active Quorum Call’ calls out as present, 100 Senators. Those present shall vow by oath or affirmation, administered by the presiding Chief Justice of the Supreme Court before the whole body and sign the ‘Book of Oath’ confirming their oath or affirmation was administered and they freely are bound to administer impartial justice. Any member not present at a ‘Live Quorum Call’ shall be required to take the same oath or affirmation and sign ‘The Oath Book’ before the actual trial can begin.

The founders of our Constitutional and Representative government and framers of our Constitution perhaps wrestled with the ideas of impeachment more than any other issue.

No. 65: The Powers of the Senate Continued
Written by: Alexander Hamilton
March 7, 1788

But our Founders and Framers recognized the seriousness of impeachment! It would in essence be overturning an election and subject the accused if convicted, to be removed from office, to never again be allowed to serve in any public office and may be subject to other indictments and punishments that arise after the removal from office, even if such charges arose during their time in office. If the person or persons is convicted by a 2/3rd. Majority of the senators voting, they cannot be pardoned by any acting president of the United States. Richard Nixon was pardoned, but he was never convicted, he resigned before the Impeachment trial ever began.

Our founders and framers further realized that by impeachment and conviction, this is primarily a political remedy. With a further view, they recognized that “government is a necessary evil”; subject to the faults, failures, fragility and imperfection of our human race. In so acknowledging these human facts, they provided checks and balances and divided government into three separate and equal branches of government— legislative to write the laws, the executive to execute the laws and the judiciary to determine the constitutionality of the laws.

Fundamental or foundational (that upon which the government rests and is to serve), is WE the People. Fundamental or foundational (that upon which WE the People rest and are to be served by), is the individual’s God given (“endowed by their creator”, not the government), “with certain and unalienable rights (rights which cannot be taken, earned, given, bought sold or forfeited), that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”, according to, the Foundation of our government— The Declaration of Independence and “in order to—

“In order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”

Preamble to The U.S. Constitution

And set forth in the ‘Bill of Rights’, the first 10 amendments to our Constitution.

Therefore, in the case of Impeachment and conviction of an individual or individuals to be impeached and convicted, they must first be given every protection and considered innocent until proven guilty. So serious a thing to deny anyone of their God given rights, our founders and framers wrote and as duly representatives of their individual states, ultimately all agreed and signed their names (an affidavit), that they were who they said they were and were sworn or affirmed that the Constitution would become the ‘Law of the Land’ of our collective states and all individuals of the Constitutional and representative government of, by and for the people, of the United States of America!

And therefore, to remove any president from office, overturn an election, and deny any of their individual rights, any crime or crimes against the Constitution, and the People of the United States, must be so great that it warrants impeachment and conviction!

The manner or process by which this is to be done is simply as follows and is careful to include all branches of government— the Legislative, the Executive and the Judiciary.

The House of Representatives must, by a simple majority, vote to impeach and then present their charges (Articles of Impeachment), to the Senate for the purpose of trial to dismiss, convict or acquit.

The Senate must call for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to preside over the trial and administer an oath to the Chief Justice that they (he or she), swears or affirms to administer justice impartially.

The Senate shall call all senators and the Chief Justice will administer the same oath to all senators.

All senators will take the oath freely and sign their names freely in ‘The Oath Book’, acknowledging their sworn or affirmed oaths to administer justice impartially.

By a 2/3 majority of senators, senators may dismiss, convict or acquit, the person or persons impeached.

Contrary to what you may believe or have recently heard, once impeached always impeached. Or as stated by the recent Speaker of the House (House of Representatives), who signed the Articles of Impeachment and sent this to the Senate, “He (the current 2020 president), “is forever impeached!” Emphasis intended by exclamation point.

“Forever impeached?” This is NOT true! It is a lie! Impeachment is but one part. The Second part is a trial, which could end by a 2/3 majority of senators to dismiss, convict or acquit. Only IF the person or persons is convicted are they impeached. If the trial is dismissed, they are not impeached. If they are acquitted, they are not impeached!

Our system of justice requires that all are presumed to be innocent, unless proven guilty. Articles of Impeachment by The House of Representatives are no different than any charges against the accused. They are charges. But the one or ones accused are still presumed innocent, until proven guilty. If the case is dismissed, they are still to be presumed innocent, even if they were guilty. If the accused is acquitted, they are still to be presumed innocent! This is, our system of justice! If this were not so, an innocent person or persons could be found guilty as charged.

Impeachment Dismissal and Conviction is so serious a matter, our founders and framers knew it could begin and end in a wholly political and partisan conclusion. They tried to make the process both as simple and as difficult as possible! The work of their simple vision is clouded by imperfect beings who interpret to their own leanings, what our laws say as well as, inserting what they do not say. But along with their simple vision to always strive for perfection, they also desired that the removal of office, be as difficult as possible.

Impeachment, Dismissal and Conviction is not intended to take place because of mere dislike or disagreement or like and agreement.

Our Founders and Framers rejected the idea of the smaller number of Supreme Court Justices and the Chief Justice, deciding the fate of those accused. The Supreme Court is often not familiar with the accused personally and may be thought of as being more independent and impartial, but their smaller number with the potential of the Chief Justice deciding the fate of the accused, was considered not enough protection to the accused.

The Founders and Framers rejected the idea of The House of Representatives, being both accusers and judges.

They rejected the idea of the Senate being both accusers and judges.

The House of Representatives are not supposed to vote on and submit to the Senate, Articles of Impeachment, for unproven charges or because, they may not like or agree with the accused.

The Senate is not supposed to dismiss, convict or acquit because, they may like or may not like, or they may agree or not agree with the accused.

Impeachment is a remedy solely for treason, bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. Though there may appear to be a lot of wiggle room or broad latitude for the word “misdemeanors”, this is NOT its purpose or intention. Therefore, any representative of the House of Representatives that seeks to make valid what is invalid or valid what is invalid, they are guilty of perjury and have violated their sworn or affirmed oath to the United States Constitution.

Any Senator that does the same is also, guilty of perjury.

Any Chief Justice presiding over an Impeachment trial that accepts as valid what is not or accepts what is invalid as valid, is also guilty of perjury. The Chief Justice presiding over an Impeachment trial, although not a judge, he or she as the Chief Justice represents the collective and entire body of justices and the Judiciary Branch of government of the United States. Although not a judge of the Impeachment trial, he or she is not harmless if they do NOT uphold the highest standards of good faith, credibility, impartial justice,
Jurisprudence, and the Constitution of the United States of America.

Any president, executive or any other public servant as the Constitution prescribes, who is under subpoena and refuses to comply claiming— Presidential or Executive Privilege, for the purpose of evasion to conceal confidential information, under the pretense of national security or protection of the public, violates their sworn or affirmed oath to the Constitution and is guilty of perjury. The remedy is to petition the court and if evidence is found that the person has falsely claimed Presidential or Executive Privilege, to evade or conceal pertinent facts to a crime or crimes committed, may order the President or Executive to produce the required information. Failure to do so will result in the additional charge of Obstruction of Justice.

Our Founders and Framers fervently desired the Impeachment process to be as simple as possible and as difficult as possible, affording the greatest possible protection to the accused that are considered innocent, until proven guilty. And if not found to be guilty, or the case is dismissed, they remain as if UN-impeached and innocent of any and all charges.

The Preamble to Our Constitution states in part, “In order to form a more perfect union…” It is NOT to form a perfect union! It replaced the former ‘Articles of Confederation of the Union Perpetual’ and removed the word “perpetual”! Perfection and Perpetuity is not possible by such imperfect beings as our human race, but it is a goal in which WE should always strive for, always! Because of this, our founders and framers would rather that all the guilty be acquitted if their guilt is not proven, than one innocent individual believed to be guilty, but is not! Think about that and the principal of innocent until proven guilty!!!

Armed with the accouterments of the Patriot Warriors of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, next time we will look at the history of impeachment, how imperfection has validated, everything you have just read!!!

Everything you have just read with regards to Impeachment is, not exactly how it has been applied since the first time in 1868. You might ask why, why not or how has this been applied? The single answer is, “Legal fiction.” It is legal because it comes from the Constitution, but it is fiction (does not exist or is made up), because of interpretation. For more information, see: ‘RESET (An UN-alien’s Guide to Resetting Our Republic)’ Chapter 16 ‘Legal Fiction (Fiction of Law) –

If you are not too depressed or stressed out about Impeachment, enjoy “Impeachment Polka,” written in 1868 by the composer Charles Dupee Blake. It may seem like an odd thing for the present, but in 1868, everybody was talking about impeachment. It had never been before in the history of the United States. The Civil War was pretty much over. The wounds of president Lincoln’s assassination had been begun to subside and people were looking for entertainment and something new. Not unlike today in 2020, in 1868, a lot of people were happy about impeaching a president. What should be a solemn occasion with the potential effects of overturning an election and the negative impact to the accused, a lot of people were looking for some excitement. On January 16, 2020, the Speaker of the House had used many pens to sign the Articles of Impeachment and passed them out like candy. But then, the House Managers marched this over to the Senate like a funeral procession, as if this were a solemn thing. It was a “solemn thing,” but many people were excited about it! It was the same thing in 1868. And then and now, there is always those that seek to make a buck off of, just about anything.

“Tickets to the impeachment trial in the Senate for Johnson in 1868 were the hottest items in town,” said Brenda Wineapple, author of ‘The Impeacher: The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation.’ Tickets were hard to get. “People were lined up outside the building early in the morning to try to get in,” Brenda Wineapple. And again, Charles Dupee Blake, sought to earn some money with his ‘Impeachment Polka. ‘

Quid pro quo?

By Dahni

©️2019, all rights reserved

Well, we are either learning, re-learning, using or abusing Latin again. What does the Latin term, “quid pro quo” mean? Quite simply it is translated in English as: “something for something” or “favor for favor.”

If I were to agree to mow your yard for a month and in exchange for this, you agree to take and care for my Lady dog 🐶 for a week, while I go out of town, that’s quid pro quo. If you agree to pay 💰 a $1.00 to the grocery store and they, in exchange, agree to give you a loaf of bread, this is also, quid pro quo. In legal and political use, the term just descends into hell from there. Then, in the hell of, subject to what you believe and interpret, we hear or learn such things as: coercion, harassment, “shakedown”, force and ideas like some mafia godfather, asking for a favor or an offer, you cannot refuse. Such is the public scenario being used or abused, as grounds to impeach, a sitting US president.

Oh, it does not matter that that a transcript of a conversation between two presidents of two different countries and its release was agreed upon by both, declassified and released to the public. And it does not matter that both presidents, publicly agreed that there was no “pressure” put on anyone, to do anything.

What matters to some politically, who paint this exchange as criminal is, the word “favor” (do “us” the USA “our country”, and not “me” personally), was used in the conversation. And to further this interpretation, just mentioning the name of a person that just happens to be running in 2020, in opposition to president Donald Trump, is grounds for impeachment? Why this just further proves the demand for this favor to impugn the integrity of one, for the sole benefit of another, to win an election? It’s a violation of campaign finance law? It’s opposition research or digging for dirt on your potential challenger? But you can forget about a threat of you either do us this favor or you won’t get money or aide from us because, it does not exist in this transcription! There is no mention or implication that any money is at stake or being withheld, unless this “favor” is done!

This transcript only factually shows two things: congratulations for winning an election and the context of the “favor” involves corruption, to which both presidents have had and are, having to presently deal with. Don’t take my word for this or what the media paints and want you to believe, read it for yourself!

Click above to view the transcript

Now as to “word for word”, one US senator wants to see this conversation “word for word.” This implies that she believes what has been released to the public, is not. Not only does this call into question the honesty of our president, all those involved that heard the actual phone conversation and prepared the transcription, it also, questions the honesty and integrity of, the president of Ukraine.

Is there a word-for-word or actual recording of this call? Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the first US president to record his private calls. This practice ever since continued until president Nixon, whose refusal to turn over tapes, was leading to his potential impeachment, led to his willful destruction of US property and ended with his resignation, as president of the United States.

But, no, this senator and others now question and do not accept this publicly released transcription. Surely there must be one more complete? There must be a recording? The speaker of the house has gone so far as to suggest that taking private and classified documents and placing them on a more secure server with limited access, but still maintained as governmental property, amounts to nothing more than a cover up?  Do you see seeds of mistrust and association with another president that did indeed, try to cover up? Do you see the grounds for impeachment being set down? Do you see that government is not trusted even by itself? Do you recall a former Secretary of State and 2016 nominee running for president, set up her own private server? Moving private and/or classified information to a more secure server in the government, is this to cover up or perhaps to protect the information and limit access to it? Why? I don’t know, maybe because conversations of the president of the US, the president of Mexico and now Australia twice, have been released or leaked to the press?

The more secure server, is it to cover up or protect the information from unauthorized and illegal leaking? I would think an illegal and unauthorized private server would be used because: you don’t trust the government and/or you are trying to limit access, trying to hide it or cover it up?

Now what about the whistle blower? There is a law designed to protect them and procedures to follow, to make their complaint credible and urgent. Prior to August of 2019, just days before the transcription was publicly released, someone(s) in the Intelligence community, uploaded a change in the form to submit such a complaint. Prior to this, the complainant had to have “first hand knowledge.”  The complaint now seen, freely admits that the complainant did not/does not have “first hand knowledge.’ Rightfully so, they were not one of over 12 people that were privy to the call between two presidents. This means that those (someone or someones), that were present, leaked this information to someone that was not authorized to have it! In other words, the information was leaked to someone unauthorized to have it and they were not authorized to leak it or even submit the proper form required, for whistle blowers.

This is called hearsay, second-hand and third-hand information, gossip and etc. Prior to August 2019, hearsay is not allowed as, it is not allowed in any court of law. Why? The accused has the constitutional right to confront their accusers and anything less than first-hand knowledge, is not allowed. But this was changed without date, reason or whom(s), made the change, for submitting the complaint.

This is precisely why people don’t trust lawyers (the legal profession as a whole), the mainstream media and politicians, even far, far less! Law, which exists to protect the rights of the people, is tainted (abused), and question the very people, they are elected by and are supposed to serve. The mindset is, guilty until if and whenever if, proven innocent? Facts do not matter? Guilt or innocence does not matter, only what can be proved? And the only proof required is, what do you believe and what can you get others to believe?

Well, this is what I believe. I’ll add some more Latin words for you to consider. The context of this entire conversation between the president of the United States and the president of Ukraine is, the mutual need for cooperation against corruption, plaguing both countries! In Latin this is, Pro Bono Publico, “for the public good”!!!!

I can think of two other things that are also, Pro Bono Publico “For the public good”!

Equality or Liberty?

Equality or Liberty?

By Dahni
© 2019, all rights reserved

One word, defines today’s democrat party and two words, just two words show, the divide and separation of WE the People of, The United States of America. 🇺🇸 Whereas the one cries out for Equality, the other fights for Liberty!

Equality?

Liberty?

No two solids can occupy the same space at the same time. With every force there is an “equal” and opposite force. Equality is a force! Liberty is a force! There is no middle ground! Chose one or the other! Make up your own mind!

“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”

The Bible, the book of Revelation 3:16, King James Version (KJV)

Make up your own mind!

Yes, it would be almost far better to be extreme left or extreme right than to be in the middle, basically doing nothing, standing for nothing and essentially falling for everything, standing your political sinking sand ground because, you only agree with those that agree with you or you don’t want to offend anyone! No one can always agree with any other, all the time. No one can always never be offensive to everyone, all the time! Make up your own mind!

“…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

The Bible, the book of Joshua 24:15b, KJV

Make up your own mind!

“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he [or she] will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

The Bible, the book of Luke 16:13, KJV

Make up your own mind!

“And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.”

The Bible, the book of Mark 4:19, KJV

Make up your own mind!

To be equal, all must be equal!

Now this rainbow flag can mean different things to different people. Did you catch that boldface word, “different”? To some, it represents the ‘Rainbow Coalition’ which started in Chicago, IL in the late 1960’s –  early 1970’s, by Fred Hampton, a Black Panther activist. Today, in the 21st Century, it represents all the “different” groups, people and races etc. So if all are equal (or should be equal), why are there so many “different” differences among us?

About the same time as above, in Manhattan, NY and San Francisco, CA “Gay Pride”, to fight for the rights of now, the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender), began. So, this group adopted (took over), the word “gay’ and the rainbow flag. If all are the same or equal, why are there, “different” names? It should be noted that the word “gay”, originally just meant something entirely “different”, than what it means or is associated with today, in the 21st Century. It should also be noted that their members are technically, all homosexuals. The root word “homo”, means the  “same” as in, same sex. They (of the same sex), cannot reproduce! Life is not fair! It is not equal! WE are all, not the same!

Still to others, the rainbow flag just represents, a rainbow. One source of light with “different colors”.

Equality presupposes that everything and everyone is (or should be), equal. Now without judging whether equality is right or wrong; true or false, consider if it was true. What if it was accomplished? Imagine equality was a reality and all were on a level playing field, all were the same? To do so would mean the seizure or forfeiture of the “haves”, to supply the needs and likely, the wants (at least many of them), of the “have-nots”! To do so would mean the seizure or forfeiture of the individual, their unique characteristics which make us all different. Neither of these surrenders or seizures is, Equality or Liberty! Life is not fair! It is not equal! WE are all, not the same!

Make up your own mind!

To be equal, each must be equal in all things!

Equality among men and women? Are you kidding me? How is this even a possible, for ANYONE to think about it or consider it? The differences are obvious are they not? Oh sure, I do believe it is possible that a woman (women), may or are, capable of doing anything physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually that a man can do! But this still does not make men and women equal! Why or why not? Well, there is at least one point of difference between them that makes men and women unequal. As a matter of fact, this one thing may make it a point of superiority. The edge goes to women!! Why? Men cannot give birth!  Hello, we are not all equal or the same! Life is not fair! It is not equal! WE are all, not the same!

Make up your own mind!

What if the beacon of freedom, of freedom itself, welcoming the “teeming masses, yearning to be free”, was called, ‘The Statue of Equality’?

All and all things, were not equal on, July 4th, 1776!

Make up your own mind!

Equality or Liberty?

Can you imagine Patrick Henry saying, “Give me [equality] or give me death!”? Or how about Paul Revere crying aloud, “To arms, to arms, the [Equals] are coming!”? Or how about our founders signing, ‘The Declaration of [Equality]’? To force equality (not everything or everyone is or ever will be equal in this life), is NOT the purpose of liberty! 🗽 But if WE could or if it were possible, how could WE as a people, ever aspire to equality, without Liberty?! 🗽 Can you imagine the Bible, the scriptures, God having written, “…where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is [equality].”? – II Corinthians 3:17b, KJV. Life is not fair! It is not equal! WE are all, not the same!

Make up your own mind!

But in all the words above, all the edited quotes above, all actually used the word, “Liberty”! Independence, as in the ‘Declaration of Independence’, implies freedom and interdependence (the free choice to unify and to individually and collectively, mutually depend upon one another). That is, Liberty!

Make up your own mind!

“In God We Trust” in, Liberty!

Equality among so fragile, diverse, infallible, mortal and corrupt (though humane), humanity is, impossible and therefore, it is unequal! It is, inequality! But even if it were possible, it is dependent on, Liberty!!

Life, and the pursuit of happiness are, each dependent on Liberty! Where there is no Liberty to live or the Liberty to pursue Your own happiness, this is inequality, for there is no Liberty!

This the a symbol of Liberty!

 

Liberty stands upon a foundation of Liberty and holds her beacon to show the way to those yearning to be free! This is, Liberty!

Make up your own mind!
