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

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!

Acts and Actions—Part 3

By Dahni

The red ball is an act which leads to actions

Acts and Actions—Part 3
(Early acts and actions)

   The Magna Carta— Latin: Magna Carta Libertatum (Medieval Latin for “Great Charter of Freedoms”), commonly called Magna Carta (also Magna Charta; “Great Charter”), is a royal charter of rights agreed to by King John of England at Runnymede, near Windsor, on 15 June 1215. This was revised several times since and by several kings. What is most important to remember about this, is that not even the king or his successors were supposed to break it! The king and his successors were supposed to be bound to it. When it came to the times of the Revolutionary War, though not by name, it was alluded to in the Declaration of Independence, published July 4th, 1776. In this affidavit (a legal document), the colonists/patriots laid out their case against then King George, for having broken laws that not even the king was allowed to do. They built their case and presented it to the world court of public opinion with its several “therefore(s)” and concluded with the “whereas” that they should be, “free and independent states”.

   But before this time, what we know as the U.S.A. today was land owned (claimed and controlled), by the Dutch, England, France and Spain, mostly. Virginia was the first colony founded by the English, in a joint venture known as the Virginia Company, along the James River, on May 14, 1607. But to do so, they had to have a charter from the king. The English King at this time was, King James, the same King that authorized the King James Version of the Bible in 1611. But throughout it’s early history, Virginia received three (3), charters.

   “Virginia received three charters, one in 1606, another in 1609, and the third in 1612. The differences among the three charters lie primarily in the territorial jurisdiction of the company, not in the right to govern the colony. In 1609, the “sea to sea” provision was inserted, and in 1612 jurisdiction was extended eastward from the Virginia shores to include islands, such as Bermuda, in the Atlantic.”

“From the outset the Virginia Company was granted the authority to govern its own colony. A ruling council in England, composed of members of the joint-stock company who were usually merchants of great distinction, was formed immediately after King James I granted the charter of 1606. The councillors were appointed ostensibly by the king, but in reality were nominated by the membership, or more often, by the inner executive group of the company. The council in England issued instructions to the first settlers appointing a colonial council to make daily decisions. This group proved ineftective, and a governor, Lord Delaware, was eventually appointed. Acting under the council in England, the governor had absolute power. The authority to establish or alter a government in Virginia was based upon the charter granted by the king; in this sense, the king delegated some of his power to others.”

From: The Second Virginia Charter 1609 – Introduction
http://www.let.rug.nl/usa/documents/1600-1650/the-second-virginia-charter-1609.php

“We, greatlie affectinge the effectual prosecucion and happie successe of the said plantacion and comendinge their good desires theirin, for their further encouragement in accomplishinge so excellent a worke, much pleasinge to God and profitable to oure Kingdomes, doe, of oure speciall grace and certeine knowledge and meere motion, for us, oure heires and successors, give, graunt and confirme to oure trustie and welbeloved subjects…”

Excerpt from: The Second Virginia Charter (May 23, 1609)

   Please re-read the quoted texts above. Pay particular attention to the italicized, bold text where words are highlighted in another color, other than black. The “sea to sea” (like from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean – east coast to west coast), “The authority to establish or alter a government in Virginia”, “as based upon the charter granted by the king”, and to his/their “heires [heirs] and successors.”

   “Heirs and Successors” sounds like perpetuity or a continuance without end. Because of this, there are those today which believe that the United States is still under rule by the present monarch, Queen Elizabeth of England and the British Empire. Therefore, to remove this undoing, we must sever our ties?

   We need to understand the words “divine right.” Monarchs believed or still believe their absolute authority (“divine rights”), have been granted by God for them to rule. Let me now here blow a huge hole in that argument. These charters began with King James and would extend to all his “heirs and successors”. This same king of with his so-called “divine right”, is the same king whose God was the God of the Bible, and the same king who authorized the King James Version of 1611. But this same God never wanted a king for His people in the first place! God told his people that a king would take their wives, their children, them, and all of their property. The people persisted. God relented and in order to save some and not to overturn freedom of will, God allowed them to have a king. And the first king of Israel, what did he do? He took all their wives, children, the people and all their property, was caught disobeying God, never asked God for forgiveness, blamed everyone and anything other than take responsibility for his own actions, and went insane and committed suicide. “Divine Right”? Not even close! But let’s say we were bought and sold way back in 1609. One if not two more things should end this bogus or false theory for anyone that has at least one more brain cell than a single celled ameba!

   In 1776, our formers published the Declaration of Independence with the reasons for separating from England to be come free and Independent States. WE won!

   Peace negotiations began in Paris in April 1782 and continued through the summer. Representing the United States were Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Henry Laurens, and John Adams. David Hartley and Richard Oswald represented Great Britain. The treaty was drafted on November 30, 1782, and signed in Paris on September 3, 1783, by Adams, Franklin, Jay, and Hartley.

   Demanded by the patriots and accepted by the king through his agents, the first of several key points of this treaty was:

1. Britain acknowledges the United States (New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia to be free, sovereign, and independent states, and that the British Crown and all heirs and successors relinquish claims to the Government, property, and territorial rights of the same, and every part thereof,…

Excerpt from: The Paris Peace Treaty September 3, 1783

   Did you catch those italicized, bold and other colored words? All the claims of the British Crown and all their heirs and successors were relinquished! Even though most of the treaty was broken over time, this first point in the treaty was never broken! But if this is not enough to blow this argument up that WE are still under the abeyance of England, here is the last point.

   The colonies, after publishing the Declaration of Independence in 1776 had a civil government. It was called the Continental Congress. Between July 1776 and November 1777 after much debate, there was an agreement among the 13 original states for the United States of America. On November 15, 1777, the Second Continental Congress approved of and sent something to the states for ratification. It was ratified by the states and came into force March 1st, 1781. This was our first constitution. Perhaps you know this by its shortened name, ‘The Articles of Confederation? Do you know its full name?

   Our first constitution was called— The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union. WOW, there’s that word “perpetual”. Does not this mean a continuance, goes on and on forever, and does not end and etc.? Yes. Well, I suppose that some may argue that because of this word “perpetual” and combining it with the “heirs and successors” of King James charters since 1609, we really are still under the control of England in perpetuity (forever)? Well, there is a problem with this logic, a huge problem. It is called— the Constitution for the United States of America. It was ratified by all the states in 1789.

   One could view the canceling of our first constitution and replacing it with our second as: with the coming of the greater, the lesser terminated. Yes, the former was cancelled by the institution of, the agreement (ratification), by all the states (it was unanimous), and by its recognition by all as— “The Law of the Land!” One way to look at this, the new, is that all former agreements ended or like the announcement of a bookie that bets can no longer be accepted because, the race is about to be begin and, “all bets are off!” 🙂

   And by the way, the word “perpetual” is missing from the Constitution for the United States of America. In its preamble its opening salvo reads— “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union…” It neither says perpetual nor the forming of a perfect, Union. It does not mean more perfect than perfect which is illogical, but one that is more perfect (better than), the former Union. It is a figure of speech. It is figurative language, which shows the intent to seek towards excellence. It is a goal. This is all it is. Could it be lost? Yes. Has it continued as the oldest surviving republic this year, for 232 years? Yes or perhaps? Yes? Yes, because this document is still here, still considered or supposed to be considered as, “the law of the land!” It is government de jure (pure law). But “perhaps” (perhaps not), what do I mean by “perhaps”?

   Prior to 2021, the Capitol (the building), underwent some much needed cleaning and repair. Had you or I been in Washington, D.C. during this time and within eyesight of the capitol, we would have seen scaffolding all around for the construction/reconstruction workers to perform the needed cleaning and repair. They did their work and the scaffolding has been removed. But just suppose that this scaffolding, hiding in plain sight, they had actually torn down the whole thing and replaced it with something new, but it still looked identical to the original? If we found out about it, wouldn’t we be upset? Would not we be angry about it? Wouldn’t we peaceably (protest), our government with our grievances? I would and I’m quite sure most of us would! Not being able to get rid of our government on their own, government has basically replaced government de jure with government de facto. Here is a definition of this word de facto:

   It is an adjective and means: “Existing in actuality, especially when contrary to or not established by law. In fact; in reality; actually existing, whether with or without legal or moral right: as, a government or a governor de facto. Actually; in fact; in reality.” Well there is another term we should become familiar with and it is— “legal fiction”. Yes, it is legal, but it is also fiction (does not exist technically). It is legal because it comes from the law, but it is fiction as it is not as the law intended. There may be circumstantial evidence, but no clear evidence or even a single eyewitness exists. Even adoption is an example of “legal fiction”. You or I may have our father’s last name, but we may not be biologically related to him. That you or I would be his child is legal, but that we are his real children is, fiction.

   Then there is the Insurrection Act of 1807. This is a United States federal law that has been used and amended since 1807. It basically empowers the President of the United States to deploy U.S. military and federalized National Guard troops within the United States in particular circumstances, such as to suppress civil disorder, insurrection, or rebellion. Several presidents, the first being Jefferson in 1808 and the last, George H.W. Bush in 1992, have used it. Abraham Lincoln invoked the Insurrection Act, April 15, 1861 against: South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas. This law requires that presidents first publicly announce his/her intentions and give a limited time to disperse. Lincoln gave them 25 days.

§254. Proclamation to disperse
Whenever the President considers it necessary to use the militia or the armed forces under this chapter, he shall, by proclamation, immediately order the insurgents to disperse and retire peaceably to their abodes within a limited time.

Excerpt from the Insurrection Act: U.S. Code CHAPTER 13—INSURRECTION

   In 2021, there are those, which believe the former president invoked the Insurrection Act and many believe it occurred on a specific date like 1.19.2021, the day before the last presidential inauguration? Others do not believe this. It is not clear if there ever was a public proclamation to disperse or a designated time to do so. The only thing clear is that the U.S. Capitol is surrounded by fences and guarded by National Guard troops and other law enforcement, called to some purpose. It is not even clear why they are there or how long they are to remain. Some believe until sometime in March? No matter, because of the acts taken by President Lincoln in 1863 (the Conscription Act and the Lieber Code), and all the actions which have followed to this day, we are all still under Martial Law! Every person, each state, the executive, legislative and judiciary locally, statewide and federally all are under the control of the military, which answer to their commander and chief, the president of the United States.

   What is the difference between the Insurrection Act and Martial Law?

   The Insurrection Act is a federal law that empowers the president to deploy the military to suppress certain situations including civil disorder, insurrection, or rebellion.

   Martial law, is a concept that doesn’t have a legal definition in the U.S. At its most extreme, it reflects the suspension of civil authority by the military, which controls civilian functions such as the courts. The key to understating this is the words, “Controls civil functions”! The Constitution for The United States of America use the following: “extraordinary Occasions” and “public safety require it”. Some state of emergency or National State of Emergency brings it about, real, perceived or manipulated.

   In 1866, the Supreme Court ruled that martial law couldn’t be imposed where civil courts are open and functioning. Martial law as a state of affairs arises from a total breakdown of civil order. But President Lincoln had already imposed Martial Law in 1863 by the Conscription Act and the Lieber Code. Neither act was ever canceled completely. We are therefore, still under Martial Law.

   Let me ask you, does it matter if any actions proceeding from the acts of 1863 were intentional or just continued? It may matter morally, but in practice, these acts were committed and the following actions since, were taken. Instead of government de jure (pure law), it is government de facto (present reality). It is legal fiction.

   Complicated? Confused? It is worse and it gets worse. This is only the abbreviated version! I did not and you did not write this stuff and neither did our founders and are original documents never intended for us to envy the privileges granted by and to so a few or for you and I to have strife and to be confused!

“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”

James 3:16 The Bible, King James Version (KJV)

   So how is this all to be undone? Do we treat the symptoms or remove the cause? Like playing hide-and-seek are we looking in the right place? Surely there is a remedy, simple and easy to understand? Yes, Yes there is!!

   Next time in Part 4 we will continue to look at some of the actions taken since, 1863

Acts and Actions—Part 2

By Dahni
© 2021, all rights reserved

The red ball is an act which leads to actions

Acts and Actions—Part 2
(The Acts which led to the actions taken ever since)

1.   Abraham Lincoln’s birth: February 12, 1809. Today is his 212th birthday, by the way.

2.   Republican National Convention: Last day May 18, 1860 Lincoln nominated for president after third round of ballots cast.

3.   Presidential election held: November 6th, 1860 a four way race and despite the fact that Lincoln was not on the ballot in 7 southern states. He was still elected, needing only 152 out of 303 electoral votes (he had 180), and a majority of the popular vote, 39.8% with 81.2% voter turnout.

4.   1st inauguration: Abraham Lincoln, 16th President Monday, March 4, 1861. After taking office in March of 1861, Mr. Lincoln not only faced a constitutional crisis of epic proportions, but he was also forced to deal with the reality of the most formidable domestic enemy to the American people and to U.S. Constitution the nation had ever witnessed. Several southern states threatened to secede if he was elected. First was SC on 12/20/1860, shortly after the presidential election, just about a month earlier on November 6th, 1860. Then, one by one the last 10 seceded within the year. Lincoln also chose four of his opponents from the Republican convention, to be members of his cabinet. Perhaps he ascribed to the belief of, “keeping your friends close and your enemies closer”?

5.   Walkout of Congress: When Abraham Lincoln took office on March 4th, 1861, seven southern states, their senators and representatives walked out of Congress. Those representatives and senators had already announced their intentions or would soon do so. Some of their states had already seceded. But it was quite certain and only a matter of time, before four more southern states and their U.S. senators and representatives would also leave the Union, preferring the Confederacy.

6.   Adjournment (without a day to reconvene), 37th U.S. Congress, March 28, 1861

7.   Battle of Fort Sumter: April 12-13, 1861. The South captures the fort.

8.   “extraordinary Occasions” clause from the Constitution invoked by Lincoln: April 15, 1861. Lincoln orders both houses of Congress to convene July 4, 1861. And in the absence of Congress, he invokes Article IV, Section 4. Calling forth the militia, Clause 1, of the U.S. Constitution, to call forth the Militia.

“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

Article IV, Section 4. Clause 1, U.S. Constitution

9.   Suspension of habeas Corpus: 37th Congress 1st Session in Senate, Thursday July 4th, 1861. Congress convened as commanded by the President on the day and time as demanded. Sandwiched between the proclamation convening both houses of Congress and calling up the militia [the Guard] on May 15, 1861, and Congress complying on July 4. 1861, there is another “extraordinary Occasion” we need to look into. Habeas Corpus, from Latin means, “You have the body.” The writ of habeas corpus is a judicial mandate requiring that a prisoner be brought before the court to determine whether the government has the right to continue detaining them. On April 27, 1861, President Abraham Lincoln in Maryland suspended the writ of habeas corpus. Whoa – Back up! Wait just a minute! Where did the president get the authority to do that?

“The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended,
unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion
the public Safety may require it.”

Article I, Section 9. Clause 2, U.S. Constitution

   Article I, in the Constitution is specific to the Congress of the United States. But the Congress had adjourned. So to recap:

a. An “extraordinary Occasion” existed, authorizing the president to convene both houses. Today, we may think of such as a state of or a national state of emergency. Real or made up, all one has to do is to declare a state of emergency and ordinary occasions do not apply:

b. Since the legislature could not be convened, the president [“Executive”] is authorized to protect the states against invasion and domestic violence.

c. Since the legislature had adjourned/could not be convened, habeas corpus could only be suspended in cases of:

rebellion – invasion – as public safety [national or state of emergency] may require it

   It is obvious that the president viewed the situation as an a. b. c. or all the above. If the Congress had adjourned, who but the executive branch could suspend the writ of habeas corpus? Why was it suspended April 27, 1861? Maryland and specifically Baltimore was in close proximity to Washington D.C. The state was divided as some favored the South and some the North. Secession had not been decided upon yet. There was tension and there were riots. Local Militia actions and the threat that Maryland would secede leaving Washington D.C. vulnerable and surrounded by hostile territory, were other considerations. General-in-Chief of the Union forces, Winfield Scott wanted to bombard Baltimore. Other Union generals wanted to set up military courts. Because of these escalating circumstances, President Lincoln decided to, instead of all of the above, to suspend the writ of habeas corpus. And Congress was not yet in session to consider a suspension of the writs. How was this act responded to? It was challenged in court and overturned by the U.S. Circuit Court in Maryland by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Roger B. Taney.

   In those days, some Supreme Court judges also acted as Federal Circuit Court judges. Taney was one of them and he chose to hear the case in Federal Court in Baltimore, rather than have it heard by the Supreme Court in Washington D.C. Lincoln ignored Taney’s order. In July of 1861, when Lincoln had ordered both houses to convene, a joint resolution was introduced, approving Lincoln’s suspension order of April 27, 1861. In the Senate, a filibuster by Democrats held the floor to prevent a vote, in opposition to the precise wording of the resolution. Senator Lyman Trumbull prevented a vote on the resolution and it was never brought up again. The same senator introduced his own bill later, but a vote never took place before the session ended.

   Lincoln ordered most prisoners released on February 14, 1862. This ended the court challenges for at least awhile. But there was resistance to his proclamation [presidential order] of April 15, 1861 calling the Militia into service of the United States. Due to this resistance, in September of 1862, Lincoln suspended habeas corpus again. No matter how you and I or anyone may choose to view these times or these acts, they certainly were, “extraordinary Occasions.”

   If we agree with Lincoln that the “Union is [was] unbroken” or not, the responses were “Extraordinary”. If secession of the southern states was legal or not, the times and the responses to it were “Extraordinary.” If the circumstances were and are questionable as to why these acts took place, the President of the United States had every legal and constitutional right and the responsibility to execute the “Law of the Land.” According to the Constitution, the government swears or affirms by oath, to protect all the states from “invasion” or “rebellion.” And the “public safety” warranted a National emergency, a state of emergency. “extraordinary Occasions,” require “Extraordinary” responses. Note: habeas corpus was all but continued for the duration of this conflict.

Extraordinary responses:

   The former “ordinary” Executive, Legislative and Judiciary branches due to “extraordinary Occasions”, became each “extraordinary.” Each branch became increasingly under the control of or the authority of the President of the United States. Three actions which all started from the “extraordinary Occasions” were ordinarily under the authority of the Executive, Legislative, and Judiciary branches of government. Three actions under the direction of the Executive branch changed the Executive, Legislative and Judiciary branches:

a. Convened both houses of Congress
b. Called up the Militia
c. Suspension of habeas corpus

10.   Conscription Act: March 3rd, 1863 This was signed into law (called a proclamation), by then president, Lincoln. It was to draft able minded and bodied individuals to serve in the military. There were compassionate exceptions for example, if you were an elderly parent, grandparent etc. and had only one son, grandson and etc., they would not have to serve, in order for them to take care of you. You could send someone else for you. Like whom? Perhaps one could send a slave as their acceptable replacement? You could also pay a fee ($300.00 = about $3,000.00 to $30,000 today). This not only upset many people, riots ensued because of it, and former slaves and rich people (“money men”), were lynched in public on the street corners of many major and crowded cities. The movie, ‘Gangs of New York’ showed some of this violence, but attributed it mostly to gangs (rival volunteer fire departments actually), crowded and unsafe conditions. But this provision in the ‘conscription act’ did not end as it was intended.

   But there was more to ‘the conscription act’, much more. To enforce it and make sure the citizenry were complying with the law and to insure they had the required number of troops to prosecute this conflict, they set each state (including the southern states if and when they were invaded and occupied), into districts. These districts would correspond to the congressional districts, so many people, per one US representative. Each “district” had to have three individuals assigned. One was a physician to see if each person was fit to serve, another individual and one military provost. Yes, each district was under the control of the military, answerable to their commander and chief, the president of the United States. Even though Andrew Johnson (who succeeded Lincoln), ended the draft portion of this act and some other minor matters, the “districts”, district states remain to this day. They answer to the district courts, which answer to the “District of Columbia (Washington D.C.), and they and the U.S. Supreme Court, answer to, the president of the United States, to this day.

11.   The Lieber Code April 24, 1863

   The Constitution deals primarily with three types of law:

Common Law * Equity Law * Admiralty Law

   For Our purposes here, think of Admiralty Law as International Law or Roman law.

   International Law deals with relationships between or among nations. The United Nations deals with International Law. In order for there to be an invasion of one or more nations, one or more nations must be involved in invading the nation or the nations. An invasion was forming in 1861, under “extraordinary Occasions,” and implemented in 1863.

   April 24, 1863 General Orders No. 100 Lieber Code signed by Lincoln. The Lieber Code is on file at the International Court of Justice. The “Lieber Code” is named in honor of its drafter, Dr. Francis Lieber, a law professor who had two sons, one fought for the Union and other for the Confederacy during the 1861-65 Conflict.
The Lieber Code is based on Roman law. It deals with how one or more nations should operate in invading and occupying one or more nations.

   Remember ‘The Habeas Corpus Suspension Act’ was passed by Congress and signed into law by the President, March 3, 1863? It basically was time-stamped until the war ended. Remember, ‘The Lieber Code and Martial Law had conditions to end its authority?

“2. Martial law does not cease during the hostile
occupation, except by special proclamation,
ordered by the commander-in-chief,
or by special mention in the treaty
of peace concluding the war,…”

Excerpts from The Lieber Code of April 24, 1863

   Was there ever any order by the Commander and Chief to end the Lieber Code? I cannot find any such order by any president, Congress or Supreme Court. Was there ever any peace treaty concluding the War? There never was any such peace treaty!

“The United States went to war in 1861 to preserve the Union; it emerged from the war in 1865 having created a nation. Before the two words ‘United States were generally used as a plural noun: ‘the United States are a republic.’ After 1865 the United States became a singular noun. The loose union of states became a nation.”

James M. McPherson,
‘Abraham Lincoln and the Second American Revolution’
Oxford University Press, 1991, p. viii.

“The de facto transition of the United States from a federation to a federal state
is marked by the gradual use of a singular rather than a plural verb.”

Charles G. Fenwick, International Law, 3d rev. ed.
Appleton-Century-Crofts, Inc., 1948), p. 148 n. 62.

“Legal Fictions” “are not allowed to be carried further
than the reasons which introduced them necessarily require.”

Excerpt from Bouvier’s Law Dictionary 6th Edition, 1856

12.   April 9, 1865, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his 28,000 troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, bringing an end to the Civil Conflict. But it took until the end of 1865, for every battle to end and all the military of the southern states to surrender.

13.   April 14, 1865, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States, was assassinated. Lincoln died the following day at 7:22 am, April 15, 1865.

   Did Lincoln ever cancel ‘The inscription Act? No he did not. Did he ever cancel ‘The Lieber Code’ or sign a peace treaty with the southern states? No he did not.

“Where was the treaty signed? There was no treaty signed to end the Civil War. The surrender at Appomattox Court House was a military surrender of an army, which was surrounded. The Confederate government never surrendered and even had it wanted to the United States government would likely not have accepted. To do so would have legally acknowledged the existence of the Confederate States of America and would have legitimized it and given it certain legal status internationally. Treaties are between two nations and the U.S. would never concede the legal existence of the Confederacy – even though it had a government, armies, taxes and all the trappings of a modern government.”

From The National Parks Service

   Remember the Constitution was authored to limit government and bind it to the Constitution? The Colonists’ intent was not to create a SOVEREIGN (Sovereign nation), but rather, to further bind the Branches of government. This is made clear in the Preamble to The Bill Of Rights-December 15, 1791.

“THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.”

Excerpts from the Preamble to the Bill of Rights

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”

George Washington, speech of January 7, 1790
In the Boston Independent Chronicle, January 14, 1790

   This was just the beginning of “Legal Fiction.” And what is “legal fiction”? To begin, it is a legal term. It begins legally, but when it prolongs longer than it was intended, intentionally or not, it becomes fiction. Instead of de jure (pure law), it becomes de facto (presently or as a matter of fact), law and what were intended to be “extraordinary Occasions”, became for all practical matters, Ordinary occasions.

   So my many ones of WE, there you have the acts, all of them, which have led us to where we are today. Unless you are over 158 years old today, not a one of us have ever lived in the republic as ratified by Our Constitution in 1789. The names of the states are the same, borders are mostly the same except for West Virginia separating from Virginia. The capitol in Washington D.C. is still there. The Declaration of Independence still applies, the Constitution for the United States of America still exists and WE are still the People. But one thing changed in 1863 and because of it, we have lived our entire lives under Martial Law, as if the military were still engaged in the conflict that ripped us apart in 1861-1865. Since Lincoln never RESET the Republic into ordinary Occasions, we are still under extraordinary Occasions. So how then are all the actions since, possible?

   Inter arma enim silent lēgēs is a Latin phrase literally meaning “For among arms, the laws are silent,” but it is more popularly rendered as, “In times of war, the law falls silent.”

   In order for these things to continue either intentionally or not, they must do so by some National State of emergency— real, perceived or intentionally used to manipulate. This is exactly what has transpired, ever since 1863. Each branch of government all vie for dominance and power, at the expense of you and I. This is done regularly. New ‘states of emergencies’ arise or others are renewed by Congress (every 12 years), in their codified ‘Statutes at Large’, also known as, ‘The U.S. Code.’ The U.S. Code has 51 titles and all information about any given subject, may not always be found in where we might think. But of these 51, there are such things as, ‘The Military Code’, ‘The IRS Code’ ‘The Judiciary Code’ and so forth. Just like in 1865, if not canceled, overturned or rescinded, they are still on the books; they are still applicable law.

   Would you be interested in knowing that our government (that are supposed to be our servants), list us each and all as enemy combatants? Each of us work for the government and every time we sign our federal tax returns, we are indicating that the information we are providing (under penalty of perjuries (plural), is that the information is true to the best of our knowledge. Do you know what this is called? It is called a tacit (silent), oath. You and I are under oath and we work for the government, we are enemy combatants, and we have no rights, just privileges? Yes! Oh, there’s more, a lot more, but I don’t want to become depressed, cause you to be depressed and without hope! There is hope! There is a remedy!!! But just like hide and seek, we have to look for the right things, the right person(s) and in the right places. Instead of treating symptoms, we need to eliminate the cause and the symptoms will disappear.

   To conclude here, if you are angry at Abraham Lincoln and want to blame him for all of this, I can certainly understand how you might feel. Abraham Lincoln was among my favorite presidents until I discovered the “acts” that he took. I was angry! But I just want to say today, on his birthday, I have discovered two important things he did which form my present opinion, that if he was not assassinated, he would have RESET our Republic, back into ordinary Occasions, of the Constitution for the United States of America!

   So those are the Acts. Next time we will look at some of the “actions”, conspiracies, and theories some believe, will RESET our Republic. Here is a hint, though these may seem important and seek to overturn these actions, the fact is, the acts all happened in mostly 1863 and everything else is just a continuance. We are all still today, all under martial law. The actions since are moot or really don’t matter with regards to the undoing. The cause has been found. We just need to discovery the remedy and to RESET our Republic.

Acts and Actions—Part 1

Acts and Actions—Part 1

By Dahni
© 2021, all rights reserved

The red ball is an act which leads to actions

   I have read much of late from lawyers and legal minds, trying to educate the population that certain actions taken by Congress in 1870 and 1871 and later revised, was in essence, the incorporation of Washington D.C., as a foreign government, operating within it’s 10 square miles. Some believe that the last true president of our republic was the 18th, Ulysses S Grant, who signed the ‘Organic act of 1871’, incorporating the District of Columbia as a foreign corporation.

   Other actions taken, others believe that the creation of the Federal Reserve, the Banking Act, the confiscation of gold and silver and replacing it with Federal Reserve notes (paper money), was the undoing of the Republic we were all taught to believe existed.

   Some believe these things existed before 1776 in our lands and are unchanged, by order of King James, in 1609 and his successors.

   Still, others believe the alliance among the military might of the USA, the financial controls in London, England and the religious control of the Vatican in Italy is an unholy alliance of global elitists, bent on world domination, a ‘New World Order.

   Some believe this is the global ‘Reset’, taking place right in the present.

   Then there others that believe this foreign corporation, this foreign government was seized by the military on January 20, 2021, bankrupted, disbanded and is now under military seizure, occupation and control. Some believe that when our rightful civil government is restored, the new president, following Grant at 18, will be the 19th president of our rightful republic.

   Others believe this military engagement and occupation is waiting, for the right moment after the population has been sufficiently awakened, to see the digital war and corruption of many, many years.

   Some believe it is being seen right now.

   And some, disillusioned, frustrated, confused, and afraid, fear that, “We are all just screwed.” I don’t want to be in despair. I do not desire this state for anyone. But I will be honest with you. If we want something different than what we have, we are going to have to do something different to get it. It will not be easy. It will require effort on your part and my part and our part.

   Though patience is a virtue, many seem to have little to none. They surround themselves, they barricade their lives with conspiracies and theories or hopes and dreams. Even simple things as “trust the plan” and “trust the man” are lobbied from within their perceived defensive positions. But when help does not appear to be coming or coming fast enough, they feel abandoned or deceived. They lose faith or stop believing. They cease from taking action. But a true military operation does not happen this way. Most may think that to “trust the plan” is arrogant and void of strategy. To the military, they do not take orders from us WE the People. They salute and carry on with the “plan” and strategies and timetables, to execute for that with which they are required by oaths to the Constitution For the United States of America and that is, to defend us from all enemies, foreign and domestic. They are bedrock, a pillar, and the bulwark in defense of our equal and unalienable rights as Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. What do we, what are the rest of us to do? What is our part? What is your part, my part, and our individual parts? What is our individual right and duty in all of this?

   I have read posts and articles and comments and viewed videos (it seems countless in numbers), from many people and sources. “Research, Research, Research,” is a common mantra. So too are such things as I have been awake or looking into these things for: 10, 20, 30 or 40 years. Can so differing accounts all be right? Are some honest mistakes and yet still misinformation? Was, is information purposely deleted or intentionally manipulated? Can there be any doubt when there is so much division that WE the People are, so poorly educated, intentionally or not?

“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.”

-Thomas Jefferson-

   That sounds great, for an old dead guy, but educate the “whole mass of people” of today with what?

   Often there is some relief expressed by many who were and are considered crazy from trying to awaken others with such notions, by saying they are not crazy as things play out currently, and more are waking up and getting angry over being so long deceived. Here is a question. If the actions of 1871 were the cause of our undoing, undoing that would set things aright? Is this true, is this correct? It was an action, but it was not an act, which started all the motion, like the red ball (act), hitting the other balls (actions), from the image, above.

    I too have researched for a long time, such controversial and some would say, conspiratorial matters. To my best recollection for me, this began in 1976. This began for me, almost 45 years ago. But guess what, none of that really matters!!! To explain, let me begin by asking you another question.

   Have you ever played ‘hide and seek’ as a child? The rules were pretty simple. Whoever started the game would ‘hide’ and everyone else would ‘seek’ or look for them. Places would only change if one person found the one that was hiding. Then they got to hide and the rest would seek for them.

   Imagine yourself as one of the ‘seekers’. Where would you start to look? Human nature would compel you to look as far and as near as you could see with your eyes. Perhaps other senses were involved, but for the most part it was by sight. You would look near and far, up, down, over, above and under. If you could not find them, you had a thought, maybe they are over there, someplace in the distance, outside of your sight or perhaps in another room or some other place? So you would go there to seek and with hope to find. If you could not find them or no matter how long it took, the answer to both is the same. You or I just weren’t looking in the right place. For this post or article, we just were not looking for the right time, to the acts, or the cause.

   Quite often in life or in a game of hide and seek, we find where we least expect, right in front of us, in plain sight or from public sources. We may think of this oddity as, ‘hidden in plain view or sight. This is because, we go looking for something or someone and expect it or them to be hiding, missing or lost, in a certain place.

   In the medical practice, if we are sick or hurt, there are symptoms. We go see a doctor and most times they do, give or prescribe something to treat our symptoms. But if the cause is removed, the symptoms will disappear. This is nothing new!

“Virgil, (aka Publius Vergilius Maro, a Roman Poet, 70BC to 19BC) said in Latin” “Aegrescit Medendo” which literally means “it becomes worse for the treatment used,” but is often translated as “the cure is worse than the disease.” This Latin phrase and the following are usually found in ‘Medical Latin phrases.’ “Ablata causa tollitur effectus” – “If the cause is taken away, its effect will disappear.” As I said, remove the cause and the symptoms will disappear. But not knowing the cause, we, government and our doctor often just try and treat the symptoms.”

Excerpt From: ‘Reset ‘ (An Un-alien’s Guide to Resetting Our Republic)

   If someone desires good health, one must first ask oneself if he or she is ready to do away with the reasons for this illness, disease, bacteria, virus and etc. Only then is it possible to help them. So just like playing the game of ‘hide and seek’, we have to seek to find. If we do not find we either don’t look long enough or we are just looking in the wrong place.

   Freedom of speech is both a right and a duty. To allow or disavow bear the benefits of fruit, which will preserve, protect and defend or the consequences of poisonous fruit, which will waste, destroy and desert. The freedom of speech as a right and a duty is to test whether it bears fruit or poisonous fruit. It is not the removal of speech (darkness), which reveals the fruit or the poisonous fruit, it is light. No one can remove a right that they did not have to give. This only serves to expose them as bearing poisonous fruit. Without exercising our rights, without exercising our duty, this is also, to bear poisonous fruit. So, we each need to know what our rights are, from whence they come and to exercise them. If we do not our duty and exercise our rights, our rights are not gone, we just don’t realize them and bear its fruit, only the consequences of poisonous fruit.

   So, what is the cause of our troubles? Do we seek to treat symptoms or do we truly desire to find the cause, take the necessary actions, do our duty, and exercise our rights and experience the symptoms being eliminated? Well, first, we need to look in the right places. We have to seek to find. We have to research. We have to become educated. We have to exercise. We have to do our duty. We each must be responsible for our own lives!

   Human nature is to do as little as possible of what we think we have to do and even if we should, but our expectations are great. Thousands of years ago, before the nation of Israel was to be, God called his people out of bondage in Egypt. Their requirements for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness were simple and basic. If they would be God’s people, He would be their God, preserve and protect them and lead them to a land, “flowing with milk and honey.” And for awhile, they followed and God did what he promised with many signs and wonders. Moses left them for awhile to commune with God. The people grew impatient, fearful and turned to the ways of their former bondage. They wanted Aaron to make them a calf of Gold and they turned to another God. Later they wanted a King. God told them that a King would take all their wives, families, friends, possessions and their property, The people persisted. God allowed them to choose. He had no other choice, for He gave them all, freedom of will. Their first king did as God said he would. The people instead of taking responsibility for their error, they blamed God. It does not matter to me if you believe God or believe in God. The Bible is either God’s word or it is the word of men and women. Whichever it is, it is worth the reading, for understanding human nature.

   Human nature has not changed much to this day. We expect and demand much of our families, friends, spouses, loved ones, employers, employees, associates, society, all the “free” stuff we have and use, and leaders and then blame these all, for our failures and still refuse to accept our own responsibility. Do not children do these same things? Are we children? But the words to this effect of our nature were written in The Declaration of Independence, in 1776.

“…all experience hath shewn [shows], that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”

Excerpt: The Declaration of Independence

   But read the very next line in the above document.

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.”

Excerpt: The Declaration of Independence

    Are you and I tired of “suffering evils” yet? Have you and I felt or do we feel as if we have been reduced under absolute despotism yet? Do you and I know it is our right and our duty to throw off such a government? Are we ready to reset our Constitution or provide new Guards for our future security that best effects our safety and happiness yet?

   Just so I am clear, whose “right” does this refer to? You and I! And that document is the reason, for our government. The reason for our government is to protect, defend and serve to best effect our Lives, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, which is the purpose of our government. Today, it is no less our right and our duty and it is no less a “necessity” today, for each of us to do so!

   There have been many actions taken before 1776 and ever since 1776. But the same cause which led to 1776 and the exact same cause which now may lead to us to the remedy of our present distress is the same. I am not about to discredit anyone’s research. I am not going to challenge anyone for what they believe. That is your right and my right to believe as we do. I am not about to show my 40+ years of research since 1976 because, I was looking in the wrong place and though some or all may be important, it is not important enough! I want facts. I want the truth. I want it so simple that I can understand it and that anyone else can too! I will show you not how smart I am, but only what I have found and it’s all out in the open, in public places. If you want to give me some credit, I did seek until, I did find. So could have you! So could anyone! So it can still be done today!

   There have indeed been many actions, but fewer acts which have led us to this point in time. We must seek to find the acts. Were these acts from 2020? Were they from the 1930’s? Were these acts of 1870 and 1871? Was it a flawed document, the purpose of our government, The Constitution for the United States of America, in 1789? Were these acts done sometime even before 1776? At what point in time were these acts done? When playing hide and seek, we need to seek to find and keep seeking until we do. The time is shortened, if we look in the right place. If we want to get well and feel better, do we just want to treat the symptoms or remove the cause? Remove the cause and the symptoms will cease!

   In Part 2, we will look for and discover together, the specific acts from a specific time, left unanswered, which led to all the actions ever since that fester and pester us to this day.

Trust

Trust

By Dahni

© 2021, all rights reserved

   Trust is a word most of us have have heard, most of our lives. As a noun, it is usually paired with a either a pronoun like him, her, them etc. or another noun like mom, dad, grandma, grandfather, other family members and people we are familiar with, other people and things and even God. The latter is found in the motto of, the United States for America, “In God WE Trust.”
   There are more catchy terms like: trust the system, trust your eyes,👀 trust your gut or growing up with ‘Superman’ comics, cartoons and live action TV 📺 series, trust Superman’s motto. “Truth, Justice and the American Way.”🇺🇸
   If I had a headache, I trusted my mom that she would give me this little white pill (Bufferin®), and it would go away, just by swallowing it and before it could actually get into my bloodstream and do its thing. I trusted that Santa Clause had come when I saw the carrots for the reindeer missing, the glass of milk empty, the cookies 🍪 on the plate left for him were gone with only crumbs left, and presents 🎁 left under the tree, 🌲 with tags that read, ‘From Santa’. I trusted that the Easter Bunny had come and left hidden eggs 🥚 🥚 for me to find. I trusted that if I lost a tooth, 🦷 left it under my pillow, and found money 💰 in its place the next morning, the Tooth Fairy 🧚‍♂️ had come.
   I grew up. Was I then taught mis-trust’ and not to trust or did I learn not to trust from examples? Was my trust validated or in-validated? We have all and each have been led down some road, led astray and left sorely disappointed from trust which in the end proved to be un-trust-worthy.
   Currently there seems to be a lot of mis-trust’ or lack of trust. Many do not trust politicians, the U.S. Congress, government locally, statewide and federally. Many don’t trust Medical Practice. It is in essence just “practice” and like we its patients are, but lab experiments, 🧫guinea pigs 🐖 and rats. 🐀 Many don’t trust the police 👮‍♀️ and law enforcement. Many don’t trust our teachers, professors and educators. Many of us don’t trust each other. And many of us don’t even trust our eyes and ears and our other senses. And many of us don’t trust our guts, feelings, intuition, revelation, and epiphanies. Many of us just don’t even trust ourselves! This is a very sad or depressing state of our lives.
   I have given some (not a complete list), ideas of what trust is NOT. But I want to share what trust is, what it really is and how we can obtain it and why we should.
   It’s time for a story. It is more than Oh No, not history, but part of his-story. Whose story? It is his-story, George Washington’s. He was appointed as the Commander of the Continental Army. He had military experience, but had never commanded such a number of troops before. And who were these troops? Most were farmers, slaves, addicts and criminals. Few had any military experience at all. All were volunteers!
   Oh, most of us heard the stories of them being ill-equipped, ill-fed, and even ill-clothed. If they somehow won some battle or skirmish, often they were forced to cobble together pieces of guns discarded or partially destroyed from their enemy, the British, to make a complete weapon. It was common that such a thing would have exploded in their faces, the first time it was fired. Their successes were few, their failures frequent and their embarrassment greater, being no match for their enemy who so easily defeated them, routed them, left them to die or retreat to the savage nature of the weather and the wild wilderness.
   We know of their being run out of their own capitol in their day by the British, occupying Philadelphia, PA. We have read of their trek through the snow where they left a trail of blood from the rags worn as shoes on their feet, where had their enemy decided to have pursued them, the war would have ended right there. We have heard of their winter in Valley Forge, where starvation, typhoid  fever, respiratory ailments from their cold and drafty and smoke filled huts and that smallpox, wiped out 50% of their already small numbers. And we have seen paintings or some artist’s rendition, of them crossing the Delaware river at night, in blistering wind, cold, snow and fog.
   But did we ever hear or were we ever taught what happened, on December 31st, 1776?

   Most of if not all of Washington’s troops had served their agreed time of service. They were tired, worn out, had not been paid, hadn’t seen their families in over a year and they were spent and ready to go home. Washington mounted his horse and dressed in his best attire. He knew he had little to offer. He did not consider himself an orator or a military genius. But he knew his men had followed him because he was civilized, mannerly; a moral man of wealth, willing to risk everything for ‘the cause’, not as a behind-the-battle general, but out front, risking everything, he asked his troops to risk. He asked them to stay awhile longer. No one was willing to do more. Washington rode off and no one followed him. He stopped, turned around, gathered his thoughts and rode back towards his troops and spoke to them, just 85 words. He said:
“My brave fellows, you have done all I asked you to do, and more than could be reasonably expected, but your country is at stake, your wives, your houses, and all that you hold dear. You have worn yourselves out with fatigues and hardships, but we know not how to spare you. If you will consent to stay one month longer, you will render that service to the cause of liberty, and to your country, which you can probably never do under any other circumstances.”
George Washington December 31st, 1776
   Every last man followed him! And WE the People today, are the recipients of this trust! They trusted Washington and they followed without any guarantees of any success. And this Ladies and Gentlemen is, trust and how you know it is warranted or invalidated. Washington trust-ed’ in ‘The Cause’ and in Divine Providence, and he took action. His troops trusted in Washington and took action. In God WE Trust? Take action!
   Today, our fight is no less real. It is not fought with bullets and guns and bayonets, but by tweets, posts, emails, speech and words. Our battle is not fought upon the field, but from home, shops, places of worship, or places of work, schools and all and mostly, in the digital world. Our weapons are ideas, principles and rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, with keystrokes, computers, laptops, notebooks, pads, cellphones, letters and notes through the mail, school board meetings and town board and town hall meetings, letters to the editors of our papers, websites, social media, podcasts, radio broadcasts, cable news, television programs, stations and networks, word to word and face to face. Ours is no less real a revolution against those that would keep or make us slaves. Ours is no less a spiritual battle against good and evil. Ours is a revolution in the digital world.
“I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
excerpt from a speech by: Patrick Henry, 1775
   It is to the death of our Republic we must fight against. Today is our day to decide! Today is our 1775!
“…mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence, 1776
   Today is this our day and our 1776!
   We must stand upon our feet and take action. We must either kneel willingly at the prayer altar of God or kneel as slaves beneath the feet of globalists and elitists. WE must trust in God. WE Trust and take action. Shout it from the keyboards, cells phones, social media, media, Big Tech and government, from the every place, to every person, from every house and rooftop! Let our actions cause the stones beneath our feet to shout!  “Consent to stay, one month longer!” Consent to stay another and another, whatever it takes! Trust and Act! Trust!!!

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

August 9, 2020

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

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

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
