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

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

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

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

Tear of Joy

With all the ‘take a knee’ during our National Anthem being played at sporting venues and the ‘everything is racist’ mentality of individuals, groups and even cities and towns, with the consequences of the attempts to change history, by the removal, defacing and destruction of public and private property, of statues and other historical artifacts, perhaps those that are protesting and all of US should actually know something about, The Constitution of this, Our Republic?

If you agree or if you would consider such, I am pleased to recommend the following family friendly and non-partisan, something for every age, board game! WE the People are family, are we not?

Happily Ever After Birthday Constitution!

Today marks two hundred and thirty years since 1787. It is Constitution Day! Today commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution, by thirty-nine brave souls, on September 17, 1787, recognizing all who are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, have become citizens. It was signed in Philadelphia, PA, the city of “brotherly love (and sisters too). For better or worse, indifferent or just different, WE’re still here! That in and of itself is a reason to celebrate. That’s it for history today. Rather than a lengthy essay or a long drawn-out post, let’s us just take some time today, to consider:

  1. How far those original 13 colonies had come in 1776
  2. How far those sovereign 13 states had come, from being so anarchistic and so un-united, in 1787
  3. How far this republic has come since 1787
  4. How far you and I have come in 2017
  5. How much further, are WE willing to go

How Much Further?

Happy Birthday!

What Happened to Love thy Neighbor?

What Happened to Love thy Neighbor?

By Dahni

© 2017, all rights reserved

 

There was a day. It was warm and beautiful. The skies were blue and friendly puffy floating clouds drifted by. Birds were on the wing and in song. Hope was in your heart. Possibility in the air was blowing through your hair. You felt good and walked with confidence in every step you took. You smiled. You smiled at others you knew or met. You said hello and they in turn, gave it back freely and friendly, like a hug and kiss from just a gesture. You opened doors for others and they for you. You complimented and were complimented. You helped out and others helped you. You checked on others and they checked on you. You stood together with them and for them and they stood together with you and for you. Your joy was theirs and theirs was yours. Their sorrow yours and yours, theirs. You were alive and glad to be. You stepped as if you knew where you were going. You were fearless with nothing to fear as all you met and would meet, had your back. You had no doubt, no worry and no fear. You loved and you were loved. The sun and moon and planets and stars and the whole earth revolving under your feet, were all in alignment, for you. You were in agreement with everyone and everyone agreed with you. Life and Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness was good, very good, good for you and good for everyone and anyone!

Then, something you did not agree with happened. Someone that was different happened. What happened to— Love thy Neighbor?

A fever of the mind took you. It took your heart. It started slowly – no opinion, no confrontation, no questions asked, no getting involved, no making waves, no want to offend. As evil surmising(s) began coursing through your veins, you kept to yourself, you kept quiet, but your temperature continued to rise. Your apathy began to boil and boil over and out of your words and deeds. Disagreements led you to arguments and the fever took your heart. It was only a matter of time; it is only a matter of time until, the fever took and takes, all of your body, your heart, soul, mind and strength. And it is contagious. It is highly contagious. What happened to— Love thy Neighbor?

I am writing here, to you, you of this country, The United Sates of America. Whether loving your neighbor is, a universal truth like, the golden rule, doing unto others as you would them do unto you or not, I am writing this and speaking to you. WE were never united because, we are all the same. WE were and may yet still be united because, all of us created equally, are all equally fervent and desire the same— Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! What happened to— Love thy Neighbor?

What happened to— Love thy Neighbor? I will tell you, whether you believe in God and believe God or not—the love of money happened! Not money, but what it represents—power and control. Not just power and control, but the love of power and control! Things like money, are made to be used, not loved. People are made, not to be used, but to be loved. What happened to— Love thy Neighbor? The love of money (power and control), happened. It is, the root of all evil! If you require a reference, here it is: 1 Timothy 6:10 King James Version (KJV)

How easy it to love Him that we cannot see, if we cannot/will not love him or her we do see? How can we say we love Him, if we cannot/will not love them He created equally? What stone do you first cast at yourself, for your own weaknesses and errors, sins, shortcomings, your differences and flaws, and corruption and imperfection? If you are to love others as you love yourself and you do not, how much even self love do you have?

Whom or what has made you feverish? Whom or what has infected you? Whom or what owns you? Whom or what controls you? Whom or what bribes you? Whom or what gags you so that you cannot/will not speak? Whom or what blindfolds you that you cannot/will not see? Whom or what has stopped your ears that you cannot/will not hear? Whom or what binds your hands or places instruments of destruction in them? Whom or what chains your feet so that you cannot or will not move or threatens you, your loves and/or whips you, harms you, kills you or your loved, unless or until you do? Whom or what has stricken history, from all your memory or your recall and whom or what strikes it still? Whom or what will come to your aide, if you cannot or will not come to the aide of others? What happened to— Love thy Neighbor?

I write these words. I have read these words. I read these words. I am just like you. What happened to— Love thy Neighbor, my Neighbor?

Do you remember, do I? Do you know, do I?? What are you, what am I, going to do about it???????

If I have a fever, I do not need or want to spread it! I do not need or want the undertaker, the mortician! I need and want a physician! I need and want to be healed! I want and need to Live! I want and need Liberty! I want and need, the Pursuit of Happiness! I want and need to be made whole! Please come my neighbor, come and love me and make me whole!!!! I will do the same for you!!!!!

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

 Excerpt from: The first inaugural address by Abraham Lincoln

Fourscore and seven [now, Twelvescore and three (243=1774], years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us–that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion–that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

The Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863

PS My inspiration for this piece is from a four-year old movie I just watched yesterday (twice in fact), called: ‘Copperhead.’ It is very similar to the times in which we are living in today. It has always been thus—What happened to— Love thy Neighbor?

A More Perfect Union

May 31, 2017

After stating the authority and the power and the origin of this Our Republic (“WE the People’), the Preamble to the Constitution sets forth its six (6), purposes or principles of Our Republic. The following is the first purpose or principle.

 

“…in Order to form a more perfect Union…”

Excerpt from: The Preamble to The Constitution of the United States of America

In order is, in contrast, to disorder. Order is, the arrangement or disposition of people or things in relation to each other, according to a particular sequence, pattern, or method. It is, an authoritative command, direction, or instruction.

to,” from the Greek preposition pros is, to, towards, or with a view towards.

form” is, the visible shape or configuration of something. It is a mold, frame, or block in or on which something is shaped.

a” as a letter of the English and the Greek alphabet (Greek- alpha), is, the first letter, a beginning.

As an article, “a” (indefinite) it is defined: One; any indefinite example of; used to denote a singular item of a group.

Note: The word “the” is NOT used which would suggest something definite as, “The United States of America.” This order was to form a beginning, something new; something in process, something in progress, and something which can be changed, improved upon, altered, amended and even eliminated if according to the authority of, WE the People, as we grow and as WE deem necessary.

more perfect?” – Can something which is perfect become more perfect or less perfect? NO it cannot! This strange usage or combinations of words should arrest our attention. Can our attention be arrested? “Arrest our attention” and our three words here, “a more perfect…” together form each, a  figure of speech. A figure of speech is a legitimate grammatical usage of words that are truer to truth than the literal statement of fact. Figures of speech are used for emphasis, to emphasize someone or something.

Have you ever heard or read, “Practice makes perfect?” But would not one have to start with perfect practice? I heard a child spokesperson for a recent adoption campaign say, “You don’t have to be a perfect person to be a perfect parent!” Do either of these two line make any literal sense whatsoever? Not without understanding figures of speech!

“In order to form a more perfect Union” is, a figure of speech. This particular figure of speech literally emphasizes the word “perfect.” Figuratively, it makes the word “perfect” truer to truth than the literal statement of fact. This figure is used as a goal to strive for, a viewpoint to ever reach for. It is NOT a final destination to be reached by such finite and imperfect people as all of humanity in this life, but a continual reaching for excellence. Only God (the laws of Nature and Natures God) is perfect and only He or it by our willingness to follow Him or its principles, His Word (or the natural law principles), and His principles can perfect us. “More pefect” removes the previous impediment of the former or first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation. It removes the inability to grow and change by removing the word “perpetual.” One cannot excel or strive for perfection, if they are locked into perpetuity of an unchanging system!

One cannot excel or strive for perfection, if they are locked into perpetuity of an unchanging system!

Union” – Union is, the state of being united or joined. The Free and Independent States united, to “form a more perfect Union.” This is referring to the former or our first Constitution, ‘Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union Between the States of…[list of the 13 states which signed the document on 11/15/1777 and ratified 3/1/1781]’

When the greater came (This Constitution on March 4th, 1789), the former (Articles of Confederation), the lesser was terminated.

The new Constitution was believed to be “a more perfect Union,” better, with its ability to reach towards a more worthy endeavor and to secure and protect and defend the individual’s God-given unalienable rights such as, “Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness!”

In conclusion, please note that this preamble and this constitution omits the word “perpetual” which was part of the Articles of Confederation. If something is perpetual, it continues. It was and remains the ever pursuit of excellence or Our lifelong journey in always seeking to excel. This constitution was NOT intended to be necessarily “perpetual,” but to grow as WE the People grow and deem it necessary to change or abolish it and therefore, it was envisioned as a continual pursuit towards, “a more perfect Union,” among us, WE the People.

“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.”

Preamble to the U.S. Constitution

Please note, it is my purpose and intent to repeat the entire Preamble word for word throughout this series. Perhaps WE all will have it memorized at its conclusion and keep it!

This September 17, 2017, We will celebrate the 230th birthday of the signing of, Our Constitution. Whether WE are history buffs or not, most will know the following quotes:

“WE hold these truths…”

excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence July 4th, 1776

&

“WE the People…”

excerpt from: The Constitution of the United States of America, Signed, September 17th, 1787

These two documents represent our founding. The first, declaratory of such things as equality and unalienable rights and etc. Those signing, represented the People of the thirteen colonies which were declaring their god-given right to be free and independent states. Please note, no court in our country recognizes this as a legal document which has no standing and no state, according to, Our supposed-to-be-serving US, judicial branch. But that is WRONG! The same WE that held those “truths” are the same “WE the People” in the Preamble to Our Constitution, and the same “WE the People” of, The United States of America today. But please note again, no court in our country recognizes the Preamble as having any force or effect in legal matters as pertaining to Our Constitution. And again, that is, WRONG, so very, very, WRONG!

There is a familiar expression that those who live under a monarchy either in ceremonial or actual power understand. It was familiar in the times of King James, the namesake of the authorized King James Version of the Bible, in 1611. It was familiar to and in the writings of, a contemporary then, William Shakespeare. And it was familiar to King George of Great Britain in, 1776 and to our founders. The phrase was and may still be used today, “WE the King” (or Queen or other ruling monarch), “of England” (or other kingdom – rule by a monarch). These words are a figure of speech. A figure of speech is a legitimate grammatical usage of words that are truer to truth than the literal statement of fact. This figure of speech empathizes the nearest noun as its antecedent which, in this phrase, would be the word, “king.” The power of the King is emphasized by including every person and even all the property and all resources of the kingdom.

Our founders were rejecting the rule of a monarch and the dominance of any religion in their desire to be free and independent states with each individual having equal and god-given (Laws of nature and Nature’s God), rights. “WE hold these truths” emphasizes the signers of the Declaration that behind them is, all of the people and all the property and all the resources of the thirteen colonies and not just their pledge of their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, but all of Ours too! “WE hold these truths,” was then and is now, in direct opposition of and in contrast to the words, the meaning and the monarch of, “WE the King!”

“WE hold these truths” in essence is, repeated and made specific in Our Constitution in the opening of its (Our) Preamble, “WE the People!” “WE the People” emphasizes all of the people and the property and all of the resources of the Free and Independent States of 1787 and not just the signers of the Constitution of the United States of America. “WE the People” was then and still are, in direct opposition of and in contrast to the words, “WE the King,” the meaning and the rule of any monarch, even a democracy (rule by majority) or any of the three branches of Our government, THEN and still TODAY!

“WE the People” are, the authors, the writers, the signers, the power and the authority and hold original jurisdiction over all our property and all of Our resources, Our Constitution, and Our Republic. “WE the People,” are, the rule of Law (the Republic), the Law of the Land! Never, Ever forget this!! WE made the government to serve US! We do NOT serve the government!

So, in preparation of the signing of Our Constitution’s 230th Birthday, September 17, 2017, How about baking a cake?! 🙂

“Nature’s God”

May 15, 2017

A friend of mine recently said, “I can’t seem to find any reference to Nature’s God prior to the time of Thomas Jefferson. I’m trying to figure out exactly what he meant by that term and where he picked up the concept.”

The words, “the Laws of Nature” and “Nature’s God,” appear in our founding document, The Declaration of Independence, in 1776.

“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

Opening of: The Declaration of Independence, 1776, 1st paragraph

The idea that the United States of America is a, “Christian Nation,” has been argued since likely, our beginning in the years which led up to 1776 and ever since. You might be surprised as to its true origins?

We know from basic U.S. history that Thomas Jefferson (one of the youngest, if not the youngest earliest representatives to the 1776 body, The Continental Congress and other patriots), was tasked with the writing of, The Declaration of Independence. It was so because of his skill with language. But even so, it may be understood that there was one writer, but many authors. This is clearly seen in the opening of the second paragraph of ‘The Declaration,’ We hold these truths…”

Let us examine the writer, Thomas Jefferson.

Thomas Jefferson was basically a deist, although the term in his day had negative connotations such as being heretical or being an atheist. As revolutionary as it was to revolt against their mother country, their king ordained by supposed divine right, the greatest standing military and naval force of the times, words such as “the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature’s God entitle them,” were just as revolutionary!

Thomas Jefferson lived during the ‘Age of Enlightenment’ 1715-1789. In France, the central doctrines of the French worded, les Lumières (the lights), were individual liberty and religious tolerance in opposition to an absolute monarchy and the fixed dogmas of the Roman Catholic Church or of any one church, for that matter. The Age of Enlightenment was marked by an emphasis on the scientific method and reductionism along with increased questioning of religious orthodoxy—an attitude captured by the Latin words, Sapere aude, “Dare to know.”

Reductionism is the theory of reducing complex data down to its basic elements to understand and apply that knowledge. An example of reductionism may be better understood from the Bible?

“Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:”

I Corinthians 10:32 KJV

Whereas we may view the complexities of humanity with its many races and variations, according to what we just read, the God of the Bible reduces this complex data down to there being just 3— Jew, Gentile or the Church of God (which is made up of both Jew and Gentile).

Jefferson also lived during the ‘Age of Reason.’ It follows in the tradition of eighteenth-century British deism, and challenges institutionalized religion and the legitimacy of the Bible. It was published in three parts in 1794, 1795, and 1807. Jefferson died in 1826, but these two ages” shaped his thinking and that of our other founders and their manner of life. When Jefferson wrote our founding document, The Declaration of Independence, agreed to by all the signers of all 13 colonies, he and our founders, believed in a creator whom created all equal and endowed them with certain unalienable rights. Some of the signers were Christian and some held other beliefs. Jefferson’s belief in God the creator was not revelatory. He did not believe in miracles. He believed in the value of the moral code of Jesus, but not necessarily that he was God’s Messiah. God, Jefferson believed, was known or could be known by design in the laws of life, hence, “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” He believed in ethics and morals and science and reason and he believed this is how the creator was made known. This was believed possible by exercising the Latin term, Sapere aude, “Dare to know.”

“Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.”

Thomas Jefferson

It was believed that this was not only the right of all to know, but the responsibility of all, in order to realize and live them – “We hold these truths.” But where did such ideas come from?

“The ideas that inspired them [our original founders] were neither British nor Christian, but largely ancient, pagan, and continental:”

excerpt from a description of: ‘Nature’s God,’ The Heretical Origins of the American Republic, by Matthew Stuart © 2014

Now this is interesting and it may or may not have been the origin of Jefferson’s belief and even it were the belief of every other signer of ‘The Declaration,’ it is, Christian, in that it is written in the Bible and specifically, in the New Testament and even more specific, in the first doctrinal (how to believe rightly) epistle, to the Church, the Book of Romans.

Please note: All scripture references from the Bible herein are from, The King James Version, KJV.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
“Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Romans 1:18-20 KJV

Without controversy, those three verses basically describe, “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” Now lets look at more of this chapter to see in contrast to “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” what the God of the Bible (His revelation of Himself) has to say.

1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel
[good news] of God,
2 (Which he [God] had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
6 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:
7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith [Greek pistis believing] is spoken of throughout the whole world.
13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. [Greek pistis believing, a verb which connotes action or if you will, the exercise of the right to, the Latin term, Sapere aude, “Dare to know.”].”
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [shown] it unto them.”
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature [created thing] more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Romans 1:1-8, 13-25 KJV

Whether you or I believe as did Jefferson or in any of the beliefs of our original founders is not what is most important. For one thing, they believed that equality was created in all and rights were given to all by the creator, the “Laws of Nature” and “Nature’s God.” There is no contradiction if you believe God is made known by nature or revealed by His Word, the Bible, Himself the Word or His namesake and only begotten son, Jesus Christ the Word. These all agree. They conciliate in The Declaration of Independence. It is concluded in, The Declaration of Independence. There is no contradiction that our Republic is indeed, based on Judeo-Christian principles. Even if one is an atheist, and believes in the theory of evolution (the big bang theory), there is no contradiction because, equality and rights are a gift of this life force, “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, a “creator,” a design and etc. otherwise, there is no equality and no rights, only inequality and privileges. Look at the final sentence in The Declaration.

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

Except from: The Declaration of Independence, 1776, last sentence

This ‘Declaration’ of equality and rights from “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” which relies on “Divine Providence,” the creator, is equal to and…

…as The Declaration is Declaratory of “Nature’s God,” so are the heavens

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth [shows] his handywork.”

Psalm 19:1 KJV

Thomas Jefferson, our founders and our founding documents were not anti-God or atheists. All were anti-divine right and anti-religion. From since the fall of Adam and Eve in the first book of the Bible, Genesis, our species have tried to dominate by force of arms or religious dogma. They have tried to un-separate or conciliate (bring together), Church and State. Kings, Queens, emperors and etc. from ancient times, were thought of as gods or as God’s representatives on earth. This is called, “divine right” and may be thought of by expressing— rule from the throne. The church and specifically, the Roman Catholic Church, uses a Latin phrase, ex cathedra “from the seat of authority” or simply, “from the chair.” I like to think of that as, from the toilet because, it is just crap. 🙂

There is one problem with this concept, Biblically.

”When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?  And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter [Greek petros, a small grain-like stone that can be blown about, with every wind of doctrine], and upon this rock [Greek petra, a large unmovable rock or stone] I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Matthew 16:13-20 KJV

In English, what this verse seems to say is that Jesus Christ would build his church upon Peter. This is the verse used to promote and substantiate the concept of apostolic succession. Please note that this verse says absolutely nothing about apostolic succession. But if you look in the Greek translation from which the King James Version came, just knowing and understanding the definition of two Greek words, this verse says something entirely different. The name Peter (petros in Greek), is very similar to his personality. One moment he was ready to die with Jesus and the next you can’t find Peter (a little grain of sand), anywhere. Jesus Christ used the word “rock” which again, is the Greek word petra, an unmovable stone. Jesus Christ simply said [my paraphrasing], Hey, look Peter, you are like a tiny grain of sand. You blow hot and cold and blow about at the whim of the wind. But on this rock (Jesus pointed to himself), I (Jesus Christ), will build my church!

So much for certain ones dominating over the church or of apostolic succession. 🙂

Throne or chair, take your pick or as it was or is, as to whomever in actuality, is in control of the rest of the population. These beliefs were rejected by Thomas Jefferson and our original founders and in our original documents.

From the throne of a king, queen, prince, princess and etc. or from the chair of a Pope or head of some other religious order, both have one thing in common, genealogy or privilege. Whether by birth or royal blood line, this “divine right” is equal to the pedigree or some spiritual association like apostolic succession. This belief was that from the line of the Apostle Peter of the Bible, all true authority of God on earth, being infallible, is thought to be the legitimate authority over all others. Thomas Jefferson, our original founders and our original documents rejected these ideas!

In their day and time, Thomas Jefferson, our original founders and our original documents were revolutionary because, they rejected the “divine right” of the king, the rule from the throne and the rule of the church (any church), “from the chair,” or the toilet. This established the concept of separation of Church and State, but certainly not, the separation of God and State. This is clearly seen in the words, “The Laws of Nature” and “Nature’s God.” As The Declaration Declares, “All men [a plural noun inclusive of all men, women and children], “are created equal…” “…that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Any religion that is contrary to these universal truths would be unequal and would be based on privileges, not rights, and the divine right of royalty or spiritual authority, based on some pedigree of even ANY moral and ethical church, from dominating the affairs of our republic. However, this would not prevent any of the “Free and Independent States,” by “consent of the governed,” of that state, from having a state religion. But among the other states, their state religion would not/could not prevent the rights of any other state or any other individual. But the United States, interdependent, would not/could not have either a dominating governing force (see checks and balances in the Constitution of the United States), or religious force.

“The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” clearly declares that we are all created equal and are all endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights. And though it does not declare whom this God is, whether by what is known from the study of these universal laws (Sapere aude “dare to know”), or what is revealed, it does not prevent God, a creator from revealing its self (male or female) in its manner and provides for, the Freedom of religion which includes, the truth! In other words, religious freedom or religious liberty, allows anyone to worship or not, as they deem appropriate, as long as, their liberty and their rights, do not prevent those of any others.

In 2015, Chris Cuomo, a lawyer, son of Mario Cuomo (former NY governor a Democrat candidate for president), brother to Andrew Cuomo, the current governor of the state of New York, is a paid contributor and host at CNN. He interviewed the then Alabama Chief Supreme Court judge, his honor, Roy Moore. The following picture is a quote from that interview.

Our rights do not come from God?

Cuomo is lecturing a Supreme Court judge, the Chief Justice at the time, of the State of Alabama and addresses him with an air of respect in calling him, “your honor.” But the insulted Chief Justice, respectfully, did not agree with Cuomo. In contrast and in direct contradiction to Cuomo, this is what the writer of The Declaration, Thomas Jefferson said,

Our Equality and Our Rights come from God!

Does it matter if Jefferson was a deist, a Jew or a Christian? No it does not. Does it matter if any of our founders were deist, Jewish or Christian? No it does not. Does it matter if any were Jew, Gentile or Church of God? No it does not. Does it matter if our original founding documents were based on ancient, pagan, continental, desist, Jewish or Christian principles? No it does not. “Nature’s God,” in concept or in reality is not contradictory, but is conciliatory. Our equality and our rights do not come from man, mankind, humanity, collective agreement or compromise, but from, “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” from the creator, however you freely choose to believe in one. What really matters is not what we may or may not believe, but that “Nature’s God” gifted us with equality and rights!

“Nature’s God” allows for the free choice, or religious freedom or religious liberty, to believe as one sees fit, provided that it is ethical, moral, is equal to all and does not prevent the rights of all, of every individual!

There are two compound words that are now, much easier to understand, inspiration and enthusiasm. Inspiration is made up of in + spirit or in spirit action. Enthusiasm is made of the Greek preposition en meaning, totally within as opposed to, from without and the Greek word theo, which is, God. Combined, its meaning is, in totality or wholly within God, the origin or power of God. “The Laws of Nature and Nature’s God,” are equal to a “creator,” all people being “created equal,” and the “endowment” “of certain unalienable rights.” Things equal to the same thing, are equal to each other!

In conclusion, “Nature’s God” are words written in our original declaratory founding document, The Declaration of Independence. Though equality and individual rights are inclusive or universal, they are written and authored by Free and Independent States that have the right to govern their own affairs, as does any other Free and Independent State or country. We have the right to allow in or remove anyone or anything which is contrary to universal rights and the privileges of citizenship we hold together, as Free and Independent States! And we also, have the responsibility of both now and in the future, to prevent anyone or anything from dominating our republic and any church from dominating our United States, religious liberty.

If these things were not so, there would be only inequality and privileges; no equality and no rights! “Nature’s God” is, the origin of equality and of our rights. And this equality and these rights did not come by humanity, but by the creator and these rights can therefore, not be bought, sold, bartered, traded, surrendered or taken by force from anyone, by anyone or anything, under any circumstances! The Constitution of the United States is the second, but equal part to our republic. Whereas The Declaration declares the origin of our equality and our rights, the Constitution is, for the defense and protection of this equality and these universal rights and our “collective agreement and compromise,” as to our privileges as citizens and how this republic is to be served— of the people, by the people,  for the people and to the people! And this is the responsibility of every one of us, to protect and defend against all enemies, foreign or domestic!

Unalienable or Inalienable

April 19, 2017

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

The Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1776, 2nd paragraph

 

Does it matter if your rights are unalienable, inalienable or alienable? Many have no idea what these words truly mean in context of what was written in the Declaration of Independence. Look at the article from the following link.

https://fee.org/articles/why-it-matters-that-some-rights-are-inalienable/

Although the link above is an interesting read (and I did read it word for word), it fails to use the word as written, in the familiar clause of the Declaration of Independence. That word is, “unalienable” and not “inalienable” as used in the title of the afore mentioned and linked article. It fails to define the word “unalienable” and like our rights, it cannot be separated from the source from which they are derived which is, “their [our] creator,’ God. And finally, the article fails in that it does not show original intent of our founders that authored it (WE the People are the authors), and written by, Thomas Jefferson, one among us, WE the People.

Our founders, many of which were from England and influenced by the work of John Locke, English jurisprudence (English Law) and were familiar with the words “inalienable” and “alienable” as they relate to property rights, to rights of property. But this was not, absolutely not, what their intentions were, in the Declaration of Independence or how the words were used, in the context of this document. “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness,” are certainly not referring to mere property rights.

Very, very simply, the words “unalienable” or “inalienable,” which as defined in most any dictionary are, exactly the same. Both can be understood by the root word, “alien.” Basically, something or someone that is “alien” or is, an “alien” is, foreign or just not from here. What separates us from any other foreigner or alien? These “truths” were written down, put into and left, in our founding documents. It is a record. It was recorded. It is a recording and like a sound recording, is considered more permanent than having to rely on the fragility of memory which is prone to leave out, put in or change things over time. Let me say that again in another way. The only thing that makes us UN-aliens any different from any other alien outside of this country is that we put our rights into writing. They are the laws of our republic. We are all aliens, but our rights are unalienable and are given by “their [our] creator,” God. If they are given by people, they are not rights, but privileges and could be bought, sold, given away or forcibly taken. They would be then, alienable privileges, but they are not. One cannot separate another from their unalienable rights, any more than they can separate the source of Him, “their [our] creator,” God that gave them, gives them freely to all, for all are, “created equal!”

Having written those things, I will leave a link below, which digs into the depth of these two words, “unalienable” and “inalienable.” Even though they are defined the same in a dictionary today, were both understood as the same in the 18th century and there were even drafts of the Declaration of Independence that used the word “inalienable,” before the final document which used, “unalienable,” most courts, corporations, and even state constitutions, only recognize inalienable rights. According to their interpretation, those rights are separate from unalienable rights and can be transferred with your permission or without it if, the court, corporation, and/or state decides it so. This is a perversion, an interpretation, a corruption; a usurpation of our unalienable rights, given freely by “their [our] creator,” God, for those rights cannot be bought, sold, bartered, transferred or taken away, with or without our permission! Why not? Because we are all aliens or foreigners in a strange land. We are pilgrims. We are just passing through. We and our unalienable rights will all one day, return to the source that gave them, “their [our] creator,” God.

Understanding of these things is of paramount importance! In addition to separating the words “unalienable” and “inalienable,” though they are defined as the same, there are those which believe the Declaration of Independence, has no place in our government nor standing, in any court of Law. There are those which believe that the preamble to our Constitution, has no place or standing, in any court of law.

The We that hold “these truths” are, the same WE behind, “We the People.”

The “We” that hold “these truths” are, the same WE behind, “We the People.” The Declaration of Independence cannot be separated from, The Constitution of the United States of America. And the preamble to the same, cannot be separated from the document including, the ‘Bill of Rights.’

To separate unalienable from inalienable, seeks to separate rights from “their [our] creator,’ God, whom gave them, from  “their [our] creator,’ God, God, being just a figure of speech, a legal fiction when in fact, it is humans (governments) that give us those rights (privileges) and can therefore, take them away? As no one can separate the Preamble from the Constitution from or the Bill of Rights, no one can separate the Constitution (a more perfect union) from, the Bill of Rights, all which are given limited power by consent of the people, to protect the rights of the People. And no one can separate the Constitution (the protector of these rights) from the Declaration of Independence (the declarer of those rights and from whence those rights have come (“their [our] creator,” God.

There are those that believe we are a democracy (rule by majority) as opposed to a republic (rule by law, a representative government). There are those that believe the electoral college should be eliminated and presidential elections should be decided by popular vote. Popular vote is, democracy, rule by majority. This is not the same thing as a republic, the rule by law, a representative government.

Nothing could be more clear in understanding the failures of democracy and the intent of the republic, than a map of the United States showing by county and by colors red or blue from the national election, November 8th, 2016. The popular vote (majority of votes) is in blue and the electoral college votes, in red.

The popular (majority) vote is in blue and the electoral college votes are in red

 

Votes from the areas in blue above show both where the majority of the votes were received and are where the majority of the people live in the USA. But it is obvious that not everyone lives in the blue areas. To control the government in this manner, all one needs to do is to receive the majority of the votes from where the majority of the people live. Now I ask you, which color (blue or red) truly is more representative of the United States? If you ca see red, then this is indicative of a republic, a representative government in action and our founders original intent. If you still desire the blue, a majority, a democracy, this was not our founders intent and you should seek to legally amend our Constitution.

There are those which believe as the times have changed, even our Constitution is subject to change. The Constitution may be amended, but it cannot be changed. We the people have the right to:

“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, July 4th, 1776.

Separating unalienable and inalienable is to separate rights of all to the priviledges of the few. Separating the Bill of Rights from the Constitution, the Constitution from the Preamble, The Constitution from The Declaration of Independence, rights from “the [our] creator,” God, reduces all to a democracy instead of a republic and robs every man woman and child from their equal rights that among these are, “Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” These are all very dangerous ideas. It is only WE the People which consent to those powers which government may by only specified limits, execute on our behalf. We the People have those rights because, WE the People are all and each, equally endowed by “their [our] creator,” God, whom gave us these rights! These rights which cannot be bought, sold, bartered, transferred or taken by force, with or without our permission! Government is neither an individual or a person (corporation), it is just a servant, our servant, the servant of WE the People.  Government’s sole function is, to protect and defend our unalienable rights from all enemies, foreign (alien) or domestic (from within us).

The Making of Faking

Making Faking

 

As this unfolds, Yes, Yes we are, embarking on a journey to discover, ‘The Making of Faking!’

Please Note: This article is not dependent on if you are a Democrat, Independent, Republican, some other political party, male or female, your religious or non-religious convictions, who you voted for, for president last November 2016 or if you like or do not like the current occupant of the White House! It does however; depend on whether you are a U.S. citizen and if you care about your Life, Your Liberty and Your Pursuit of Happiness!

 

For quite sometime now, the media is full (almost daily) of reports on:

  • Russian hacking of our election
  • The Trump campaign in collusion with the Russians to influence the election in his favor
  • Shakeup in the Whitehouse of firings/resignations/declinations to serve based on Russian ties
  • Suspicion of corruption or collusion with the Russians with members of the Trump administration
  • Wikileaks dumps (Vault 7) over 9,000 documents
  • Wiretapping of U.S. Citizens or No wiretapping
  • Former President Obama’s purported Shadow Government to take down President Donald Trump
  • Calls for Impeachment of Donald Trump
  • The Intelligence Community agreeing or not over wiretapping and/or possible collusion with the Russians and the Trump Administration, before and after the presidential election in November, of 2016
  • Calls for investigations from numerous sources
  • Calls for a special prosecutor to investigate these matters, from numerous sources
  • Fake News (actual and fake, fake news)
  • LEAKS

The last on the list above perhaps should be, first on the list. For this post, it should be! The number two should be, the word, FAKE. To be even more clear, first one fakes something (or sites something they known or unknown to be fake) and then they purposefully and intentionally or unwittingly, leak it (or cite leaks by others).

Maybe you are sick and tired of all of this? Rightfully so. Being bombarded with this stuff so much and so often, perhaps you don’t or no longer care? That’s understandable.

Perchance you have closed your mind to all of this because, it is too difficult to understand, figure out or even prove to yourself, what is and what is not true? That is a common reaction. But each of us should care and by the end, it is my hope; my intention that each of us do, and with a view to understanding all of it. And especially, with a further view as to what each of us can do about. Yes, each of us because, it is affecting and effecting our lives, each and every day!

Before continuing here, I would like you to know that I was a trained, investigative reporter. Though I have not been employed in this field for years, I maintain the skill set. I know how to research and source material, content and people, places and things. I am here, offering each of you, the benefit of my training. True journalism just reports. True investigative journalism, first investigates and then, it reports. This is not an editorial, my opinion or my theory or my speculation! It is based on what facts exist, which anyone can find, look up and know, that they know, that they know.

Some of the information I will provide here, does not require the intelligence community to reveal it, Congress, any court or any government agency, forced to provide it to the public. Most of it, just requires some investigative research (which I am providing) and just a fundamental understanding of how things work like, email and email servers – those storage devices that allow information to be sent and received over the Internet.

This begins with Edward Snowden. He was a whistleblower that leaked information about our own government about many things, which was and may well be still, engaged in. What things? Things like capturing what we previously believed was private information, from every citizen in the United States. Although his motives for, and the consequences of, doing so, may be subject to opinion, the content of those leaks has not been disputed. How could it be because, it was accurate! This information can come from a multiple number of sources i.e. a cell phone, and any e-mail address among other things. Our government collects and stores this information. What used to be, for all of us as, a reasonable expectation of privacy, has now become something you should be vehemently, adamantly and emphatically concerned about because now—

There is No Reasonable Expectation of Privacy!

What about our Constitutional rights? What about our right to be secure in our papers and etc. and our intellectual property? Not anymore! You and I should be concerned about that! But what about the Law (the Constitution) and other existing laws? Aren’t there laws in place to protect? Yes, Yes there are, but most often, to protect those that break the Law or laws.

This continues with the latest news about surveillance or what we understand as wiretapping. It is believed that a warrant must be obtained from a court, in order to wiretap. Enter, the FISA Court. FISA, The United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance or simply, FISA Court (FISC). It is a U.S. federal court established and authorized under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA) to oversee requests for surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the United States by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies. Is there anything in the above information that suggests this may be obtained from a citizen of the United States? No there is not! But if this communication is between a foreign entity and a U.S. citizen, a warrant may be granted by the court. Like any warrant, there must be sufficient evidence, for a FISA Court judge to grant the warrant.

So now let us go back in time from the present (March of 2017), to around October last, then June and earlier of 2016.

President Donald J. Trump under his personal Twitter account tweeted on March 4, 2017,

“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory [referring to the November 2016 election]. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! …Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by a court earlier [this would have been in June of 2016]. A NEW LOW! …I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones [would include email too] in October, just prior to election! …How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones [and data] during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Donald J. Trump
twitter.com/realDonaldTrump 3.4.17

 

This sure set off a firestorm! What was the proof? Is there any? What were some of the responses to these accusations?

“A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”

Obama Spokesman Kevin Lewis

Is the Attorney General that works, for the president, in the White House? No. So yes, one could president Obama never interfered in an investigation and maybe that he never instigated one either? But did he tell his AG to do it or did she know that is what he would have wanted her to do?

“I think he’s [Trump] right in that there was surveillance and that it was conducted at the behest of the attorney general-at the Justice Department.”

Former Attorney General to President George W. Bush, Michael Mukasey

“No president can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you [Trump].”

Former Obama National Security Adviser, Ben Rhodes

Rather than decide who is right and who is wrong from the apparent contradictory statements above, how about a novel approach? Let’s look at one, actual law.

Excerpt from the U.S. Code

Chapter 36 of Title 50 of the U.S. Code “War & National Defense” ,
Subchapter 1, Section 1802

 

Does this law begin with the President then proceed to the Attorney General? Yes. So Could it be said that the president may order such surveillance? Yes. May it be interpreted that the Attorney General if so ordered, the president did not order it? Yes. Semantics? Perhaps, but understand all these people who serve in a presidential administration are not elected, they are appointed by the President; many of which are confirmed by Congress, but they “serve at the pleasure of the President!”

“Definition of at the pleasure of (someone) — used to say that something is done or can be done because someone wants it to be done, I serve at the pleasure of the president, and I will continue to serve as long as the president wants me to.”

“I can’t speak officially anymore. But I will say that, for the most part of the national security apparatus that I oversaw as DNI [Director of National Intelligence] , there was no such wiretap activity mounted against his [Trump’s] campaign. I can’t speak for other Title Three authorized entities in the government or a state or local entity.”

Former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper

When he was asked to confirm or deny the existence of a FISA court order, Clapper claimed, “I can deny it.” He then followed up with, “Not to my knowledge.” Well, which is it, does he deny it or just doesn’t know? Doesn’t want to say?

His statements were widely spread across the media, but his later claims were mostly ignored by the media. In an interview with CNN’s Chuck Todd, Clapper was asked—

“Let me ask you this, does intelligence exist that can definitely answer the following question, whether there were improper contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian officials?

Chuck Todd, CNN

“We did not include evidence in our report, and I say our, that’s NSA, FBI and CIA with my office, the director of national intelligence that had anything— that had any reflection of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians. There was no evidence of that included in our report.” 

James Clapper

“I Understand that, but does it exist.”

Chuck Todd, CNN

“Not to my knowledge.”

James Clapper

Understand that this information about whether or not such surveillance was performed to which there would be a paper trail, is juxtaposed (side by side) with the longstanding theme of Russian hacking, interfering with our election in favor of  Donald Trump, winning that election. And if the scenario is true, Russian hacking is believed to be the cause for why, Hillary R. Clinton lost the election.

Now, right now it should be clear to anyone that our intelligence agencies are either incompetent or cannot be trusted to tell the truth! Both? If the idea of Russian hacking persists, how can it be denied that the intelligence community did not know about it if, they deny surveillance being ordered? This appears to be exactly what Clapper seems to wants distance away from. If our election was hacked by the Russians (and it sure appears our intelligence agencies were clueless), and since there is no evidence to support this, how would he know or would they (the Intel. Community) know, without some data? So, were we hacked? Was Trump “tapped?”  Is it one or the other or both? Let’s look at the credibility of the former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper.

In March of 2013, then as DNI, James Clapper testified before Congress, under oath, regarding the National Security Agency’s (NSA) collection of data.

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden asked, “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions, or hundreds of millions of American?” “No sir,” Clapper answered. To confirm, Senator Wyden repeated clapper’s answer— “It does not?” James Clapper responded— “Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently, perhaps, collect, but not wittingly.”

Which is it, wittingly (knowingly) or unwittingly (without knowing)?

In January 2014, Edward Snowden said his “breaking point” which led to him becoming a whistleblower in May 2013 was “seeing the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, directly lie under oath to Congress.

“There’s no saving an intelligence community that believes it can lie to the public and the legislators who need to be able to trust it and regulate its actions. Seeing that really meant for me there was no going back. Beyond that, it was the creeping realization that no one else was going to do this. The public had a right to know about these programs.”

Edward Snowden

Just so it is perfectly clear, this is about not just warrant-less surveillance on just a few, but anyone and everyone the intelligence community sees fit to target. Now here is an ill-logical, logical reason for this. If you collect data from everyone, sooner or later it will surely lead to some potentially bad stuff/people or some bad stuff people who you or I may have wittingly or unwittingly, had some form of communication with or that used us to receive and send information. I’ll call it the ‘Spaghetti Effect.’ If you throw all the spaghetti (all data) against the wall, sooner or later, some of it is bound to stick!  I cannot answer for you, but I’m NOT OK with this! Even if you believe your data is harmless and you have nothing to worry about, do you trust the Intelligence Community to not use it against you if, it suits their purposes? I certainly don’t! Too much information in the hands of humans with opinions and purposes that are not in line with the Constitution and my personal Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness is, a very, very dangerous thing!

On June 21st, 2013, just about three months after he testified under oath to Congress, then Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said the following:

“My response [to Congress] was clearly erroneous for which I apologize. While my staff acknowledged the error to Senator Wyden’ staff soon after the hearing, I can now openly correct it because the existence of the metadata collection program has been declassified.”

Former DNI, James Clapper

OK, so you apologize for lying under oath, but it’s OK? He is really not guilty of perjury in the least or multiple perjuries? OK, does this make you feel any better or trust the Intelligent Community any more? Not me! Was it OK for Clapper to lie under oath to Congress because, the information then, was classified? And if not for Snowden leaking the information, how would anyone know or maybe even, ever know?

What matters is not whether you or I believe Snowden was a patriot or a traitor. What matters is the reach and over-reach of our servants in the government of US, WE the People? Can we trust them? Can we trust them to keep secrets? Can we trust them not to leak secrets?

With those matters out in the public, wouldn’t you think the Intelligent Community would scale-back or hide or change their ways? Wouldn’t you expect Congress to reign in the Intel Community or cut their funding? I would and I do! Perhaps they are reluctant to do so because, like you and I, all of their data is stored too? Maybe they don’t want their data leaked? Maybe they don’t want to be fired or arrest or have their lives and the families and their friends lives be put in jeopardy? But look at the following from January of 2017, even before Donald Trump was sworn in, as the 45th President of the United States.

From the Office of the Director of National Intelligence

Fact Sheet on E.O. 12333 Raw SIGINT Availability Procedures

January 12, 2017

On January 3, 2017, the Director of National Intelligence, in coordination with the Secretary of Defense, issued the “Procedures for the Availability or Dissemination of Raw Signals Intelligence Information by the National Security Agency under Section 2.3 of Executive Order 12333” (the “Raw SIGINT Availability Procedures”).  The procedures were approved by the Attorney General on January 3, 2017.

The procedures are called for by Section 2.3 of Executive Order (E.O.) 12333, as amended in 2008.  The last paragraph of Section 2.3 of E.O. 12333 provides that elements of the Intelligence Community (IC) may disseminate information to a recipient IC element to allow that element to determine whether information “is relevant to its responsibilities and can be retained by it, except that information derived from signals intelligence may only be disseminated or made available to Intelligence Community elements in accordance with procedures established by the Director [of National Intelligence] in coordination with the Secretary of Defense and approved by the Attorney General.” [1]

Executive Order 12333, often referred to as “twelve triple-three,” has attracted less debate than congressional wiretapping laws, but serves as authorization for the NSA’s most massive surveillance programs — far more than the NSA’s other programs combined. Under 12333, the NSA taps phone and internet backbones throughout the world, records the phone calls of entire countries, vacuums up traffic from Google and Yahoo’s data centers overseas, and more.

In 2014, The Intercept revealed that the NSA uses 12333 as a legal basis for an internal NSA search engine that spans more than 850 billion phone and internet records and contains the unfiltered private information of millions of Americans.

In 2014, a former state department official described NSA surveillance under 12333 as a “universe of collection and storage” beyond what Congress has authorized.

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, who gave reporters documents that revealed the breadth of the 12333 surveillance, tweeted this:

“As he hands the White House to Trump, Obama just unchained NSA from basic limits on passing raw intercepts to others https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/12/us/politics/nsa-gets-more-latitude-to-share-intercepted-communications.html …”

11:54 AM – 12 Jan 2017

So if you would like to believe that the then president Obama, had nothing to do with this, then so be it, call it, “plausible deniability.” But these changes occurred in his administration and just days before the next president was sworn in and took up residency in the White House.

What does this mean to you and me? What does it mean to the Intelligence Community? Sharing information among the agencies can be a good thing, but what else? A better question is this, what lately, has the Intelligence Community being doing with this information? LEAKING it! Where is it being leaked to? The media or Wikileaks latest dump of some 9,000 documents called, ‘Vault 7.’ Where is there journalistic integrity among the media? Is it OK to publish illegal information that should have never been given them in the first place?

Every single one of US U.S. citizens should be greatly concerned about this! Our own Intelligence Community is leaking information they cannot legally give. They have one job and that is keeping secrets and keeping their mouths shut. Is it any strange thing that better than 90+ % of all the IC donated to other than Trump, voted for other than Trump and is still at their jobs within the present administration? OK, so they don’t like Trump. Does this give them any grounds to illegally leak this information to the press? Do you realize this is a criminal offense; a federal crime, a felony? Is the media complicit in the transmission of this illegally gotten information? Should they be arrested, tried and convicted too? And they do this in the name of protecting anonymous sources? Are they just fake people or are they real people that do not want to be caught, found out breaking the law?

OK, let’s move along to another subject, albeit one that is connected and in fact, may be central to this whole Russian hacking and the wiretapping controversy . It’s called, e-mail.

Before we go into email, it is important to get our terms correct. Hacking is an attempt to get into devices and systems without authority, for the purpose of discovering information from outside of the device or the system. Yes, it could be done on purpose to discover any vulnerability of the devices and systems, with a view to improvement and greater security. But when speaking of Russian hacking, the purpose is believed to have affected, the outcome of our recent presidential election. Leaking is not hacking, per se. The information might be gained from hacking and then, leaking the information. But why would anyone, want anyone to know, they hacked your stuff by leaking the information? Would this possibly close the door to one doing anymore hacking, at least in the ways it was done prior to leaking it? No, the current leaks coming from our government to the press are, coming from our inside our own government.

Remember the Email Scandal involving Hillary Clinton? Whether or not she did or did not do anything wrong may or may never be known. But the fact is, she did have a private server installed in her home, outside of the government. Another fact is, it was found out and that she did indeed, had a private server. That information was leaked to the press and the public at large. Why did she have such a server in the first place? Perhaps she had much, she wanted to hide? Maybe it was, that she, far better than you and I, knew, about the government’s collection of data and did not trust it herself? It could also be possible, it was both of these. Before we get into the possibilities of HOW this was leaked, the question is WHY her use of a private server would be leaked. There are only two possible reasons:

  1. To discredit her, to cast doubt on her credibility; to suggest she was doing something wrong, even if not. This is purely political.
  2. To illegally leak information about a possible ongoing criminal or potentially criminal investigation. This could have been political and it could have been from whistleblowers that right or wrong, believed the government was doing something wrong, i.e. trying to cover it up. Even so, those leaks even if true, are still illegal.

So, HOW could this information get found out? We already have looked into the massive collection and storage of data by the Intel Community. But an email server is used to send and receive information privately (Intranet) and over the Internet.

E-mail servers are devices and systems used to do this. As information comes in or goes out, this data is coded (computer language) in the form of packets. It is highly possible if this information is not encrypted, for others to snag this information out in cyberspace at some point after it is sent and before it is received, by the recipient. Another way is to hack into the system and have access to whatever goes out or what comes in. Another way is to log onto the system by way of a user name and a password. There are ways to discover one’s password if it is not long enough; strong enough. We know that the Democrat Convention was compromised. It has been blamed on Russian hacking and many may still hold to this belief. We know that much of this information was leaked to Wikileaks. At the forefront of this was, John Podesta. Through him, this information was leaked. How? A simple ‘fishing’ program was used to discover his password, which was, password! Some believe that someone within the DNC leaked this. Some believe that person ended up being murdered.

Email and email servers if used to transmit information over the Internet have, what we call, a ‘paper trail’ even if just digital as opposed to real paper (unless it is printed). This information is registered. It is extensive. It is public. These ‘whois’ searches include such things as the name of the server i.e. hillaryclinton.com or mail1.trump-email.com or mail.trump-email.com, physical address, the registrar such as, goddaddy.com, telephone number, fax number and administrative contact email and many other items.

It is no secret that politicians tend to smear, lie, spread rumors and cast doubt about their their opposition. Donald J. Trump was definitely trying to exploit Hillary Clinton’s private email server during the presidential campaign of 2016. Chants of “Lock Her Up” could be heard long loud and often, at many of Trump’s rallies.

It is now understood that in June of 2016, then Attorney General, Loretta Lynch (or a deputy/assistant attorney?), tried to obtain a FISA warrant to tap into Donald Trump’s e-mail server, for possible ties to Russia. It was denied likely because, it was lacking sufficient evidence. Perhaps coincidental, but this request in June, happened to be around the time that Former President, Bill Clinton, met with AG, Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.  Another request for a warrant was filed again with the FISA court in October, and was granted. So here is the question, what changed from June to October? What evidence existed that caused the FISA court judge to grant the warrant? Was it evidence or suspicion, due to the unusual amount of activity, found supposedly, coming from Trump’s server and a Russian bank? OMG, Did Donald Trump have Russian dressing with his salad? OMG he must surely be in collusion with the Russians? Yes, something that ridiculous, spread long enough enough could cause doubt and start to stick. But their had to be more data than just one bottle of Russian dressing for the Intel Community to get involved. There was and we shall see, it’s all the ‘Making of Faking.’

From May 4th –September 23rd, 2016, there were over 2,800 ‘hit’s’ called pings from a Russian bank and Trumps email server. Then in October of that year, the warrant was granted. How did anyone know about this unusual activity in the first place, before June, when in June, the first warrant was denied? How could they present sufficient evidence in October to receive the warrant if, Trump’s email was not already being looked into? Was all of this leaked? What were these pings?

On October 31st, 2016, two articles appeared from the press. One was from Slate and the other was from, The New York Times. On the same day (10-31-16), Hillary Clinton tweeted:

“Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank.”

Hillary Clinton

10-31-2016 5:56 PM

 

What computer scientists? Who were they? What covert server? Where was it? How did they know? Who told Clinton, Slate or the New York Times?Two articles and one tweet all from leaked, unnamed, anonymous sources and all of it illegal, started the spread of doubt which continues to cloud the integrity of the United States Intelligent Community to this day! Not only do WE the People not trust our government, many of our allies have doubt. Do you see what a dangerous game is being played, for whatever the motives might be, well-intentional or not; wittingly or unwittingly? A game? A dangerous game? If their is something to the Russian hacking and the Trump Organization’s collusion with the Russians, so be it. But there is no evidence? And there is still no answer as to the government’s role in surveillance which included private citizens. The government can deny it all they want, but they’re in it “thick as thieves.”   Somebody thought I wonder if or let’s say there is suspicion of wrongdoing here so let’s use the the Intel Community to check it out. Well, look at this, nothing. Then again in October, well look at all the activity, look at all those pings!!!

Well back to those pings. For a simple explanation for what are referred to as a DNS (domain name server) lookup, think of them initially as, a request for information. It’s like— hello, are you at home right now, is this really you. You are simply trying to establish some communication and verify you are communicating with who you are intending to reach or that is attempting to contact you.

There are other ways to try to communicate with a device or system. You might just want to leave ‘cookies’ to see where the server goes onto the internet. Many businesses use ‘cookies.’ They may be harmless, but nonetheless, they are like intruding little unseen spies, removed when you clear your Internet cache. It can get more and more sinister. One might want to try out different keys (passwords) to see if they can get in through your front door or maybe some other door. They may look for some open windows or doors, some unsecured ports that would allow them entry.  These hacks and cracks might be used to just break in and steal our stuff one time, destroy the place or leave a back-door to get in at anytime and steal and/or break stuff little by little. And they may want to exploit your device or system, by using it to contact other devices and systems and blame you for it.

So, somewhere between May-June of 2016, Trump’s email server got pinged over 2,800 hundred times. If it was just a simple hello is this you (DHS) request, this article would never have been written, and no one would be talking about Russian hacking and U.S. wiretapping (all data from whatever source). It was more than just the volume of pings which alerted attention and caused a judge to grant a warrant. The activity was just unusual. What does that mean? I do not know, but it was unusual.

I have included the following link to a CNN article that does a good job of explaining much of this rather than just speculate, which many believe CNN does often. CNN has been called the Communist News Network, the Clinton News Network and just the Fake News Network. I am not a fan of CNN, but the article linked, offers a pretty good explanation as to this unusual activity. As I explained earlier, mail. trump-email.com is a current and legitimate server. So was mail1.trump-email.com. The Trump organization employed a marketing firm called Cendyn out of Pennsylvania. The administrative email contact was a vice-president of the company and coincidence or not, she is related to a former CIA agent.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/09/politics/fbi-investigation-continues-into-odd-computer-link-between-russian-bank-and-trump-organization/

Click to read the above article and look for the links and click on the Slate and the New York Times articles as well.

OK, you and I know somewhat about, what marketing firms do, especially if we have ever stayed in a hotel or a motel. We went, we stayed; we receive emails (spam) about wanting us to return, about their other services and perhaps a lot of other things. You do realize that Trump Tower is among other things, a hotel right? People associated with the Russian bank in question, have stayed at Trump Tower. But the communication was one-way. There is no evidence that the Trump Organization ever returned the communication.

So, there was this server mail1.trump-email.com that was being administered by Cendyne a marketing firm in PA. At some point they were replaced by a German firm, but that server still existed and technically was still being administered by Cendyne. Were they or was the vice-president who was the administrative contact listed under email contact, mad about being replaced? Did they want to get back at Trump for outing them or try to cast doubt on Trump because, they favored Clinton for president? I don’t know. But that Russian bank had admitted receiving marketing email from Trump Tower in the past, but when they noticed the unusual amount of activity, supposedly coming from them, they used U.S. specialists to try to solve this. Their investigation and research showed this came from somewhere in Europe. Well, of course we would expect them to deny it, but what actually was done? A whole bunch of communication, supposedly from them to mail1.trump-email.com was sent, but no evidence was ever responded to. Then, when the Trump organization discovered their email server (address) was being used, they took it down. Next, the collusion with Russia conspiracy theory continues, see there, Trump is trying to hide something, he got caught with this email server and took it down?

Well, you can continue to believe that if you so desire. You can blame the Russian for hacking the DNC, trying to manipulate the election, trying to get Donald Trump elected, and that he was and/or is, in collusion with Russia, that there were or was not attempts to wiretap the Trump Organization or that it never happened. And you can believe that he is an illegitimate president, that he and the Russians cost Hillary Clinton the election. You can believe that his appointments had or have Russian connections. As for me, and this article and the research contained herein proves only one thing.

Someone or someone(s) (that would be collusion), conspired to make it look as if, Donald J. Trump was and/or is, in collusion with Russians. I don’t know who did this, exactly how it was implemented, where it originated (likely someplace in Europe), but the only evidence to support the requests for two separate FISA warrants and any surveillance originated in our country, by our Intelligence Community and during the Obama administration.  Is Obama running a shadow operation to discredit or try to impeach Donald Trump from his presently rented home just about two miles from the White House? I do not know. Iis he doing all of this to try and preserve his legacy at the expense of to hell with the law, intelligence, secrecy and protection of our Constitutional rights? I do not know. Has his former advisor/attorney Valerie Jarrett been given a room and an office in this home as several media outlets have reported? I do not know. Has Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, Laura (also a lawyer), been hired by CNN to cover Washington D.C. Politics and etc.? Yes? Does she have a journalism degree, background or expertise? No!

So in conclusion here, this entire so-called scandal is nothing more than, the ‘Making of Faking.’

People that believe something nefarious or evil is at the center of this controversy, are not faking what they believe. That could change, especially if, nothing to the contrary comes out, but then again maybe not. People believe what they believe whether it is factual or fake.

“You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make them drink. You can lead a man [or a woman] to the truth, but you cannot make them think.”

-unknown-

“A man [or woman] convinced against their will, is of the same opinion still.”

-unknown-

Oh those pesky facts, alternate or alternative facts! But one more thing can be added here, our own government, our Intelligence Community and the previous administration has been involved with fake information, leaked that information and is in CTA (cover their ass) mode about their reach and over-reach against Our Constitution, Our rights, beyond the scope of Congressional oversight and is an out-control, illegal, clandestine operation of espionage against their own country and their own employers, US, WE the People! Fictionally Legally (legal fiction) or not so legally, they might defend, but they are guilty of if not treason, at least in not honoring their oaths of office to protect and defend the United States and Our country, you and I, against all enemies foreign and domestic. And for what? For what purpose? To continue the making of faking, unanswered and answering to no one especially not their employers, WE the People who are supposed to serve at Our pleasure because, most are not even elected. If WE do not put a stop to this, who will? In this, they are our enemies from within and they are not our friends!

You have just read a report. It has been reported on by the tools of investigative journalism. Your conclusions are your own. Sorry, there are only two pictures provided in this post. You will just have to get the picture, on your own, make up your own minds, but this is truly about and has been about and remains, the ‘Making of Faking!’

What the immigration stay really means

(Or what it should mean to the country and to you and I)

 

To begin, let me make it perfectly clear that the words I write are mine and what I truly believe. Call it my opinion if you like, unless I am to be accused of purposefully and intentionally reporting fake news. Although I have been previously a member of the press and may still be technically and to be specific, an investigative reporter, it is not with this title or in this capacity that I write these words. Keeping this firmly in your mind, look up the information I present to follow, on your own as to whether or not it is true.

Before the current status of the temporary immigration and refugee pause and its present stay, it is awaiting the decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals as to whether it will remain a stay or overturned and allowed to continue as was originally written, for limited days. Yesterday, 2/9/17, The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals  unanimously (panel of three judges) decided in favor of the Washington state judge’s ruling. The ‘stay’ is stayed.  But either way, it will likely go forward, to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Over the last eight years, the seven countries temporarily denied from coming to the United States, have been considered to be potential threats to the US, and have insufficient vetting policies. Six of these seven countries have been bombed over the last eight years with over 100,000 bombs. Our country has a long-standing history of not allowing immigrants or refugees from countries, we are at war with. Since FDR, there have been many more pauses of immigrants and refugees by Democrat presidents, than Republican presidents. But also this power to protect the citizens of the United States by the president as Commander and Chief, is both granted by The Constitution and given him or her by Legislative authority of the Congress, regardless of which party has been in the majority. The years 1952, a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1953 and another law passed by Congress in 1965 have been the precedents. Search this information for yourselves.

“Our country has a long-standing history of not allowing immigrants or refugees from countries, we are at war with.”

As a writer, I am employing and providing, any reader here, with back-story. If necessary, you may look that term up. To often see where we are or where we are going, it is important to see where we have been.

Search the recent private donor party of the founder of Media Matters and a recent disclosure of a confidential memorandum of how it and it’s entities seek to delegitimize the current administration with ways to impeach, impede or prevent its agenda from moving forward by way of the courts and reassert the present gurgling and on life support, Democrat Party, by 2020.

Enter, the George W. Bush appointee, a federal court judge in the state of Washington. His appointment, by a Republican president, neither make his rulings Republican or conservative, but should not control the outcome of the other 49 states and our territories. But this is how it has shaken out. One state judge has affected the rest of the nation. Research it for yourselves.

So the Justice Department acted to overturn this stay and its present status sits with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Although I cannot prove this, I really do believe that Media Matters searched out this judge on purpose, knowing full well that it would lead to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is known to be a progressive and liberal court, whose decisions are often struck down by the US Supreme Court. Search these things, for yourselves.

Meanwhile, in Washington DC, the Democrat Party continues to block, obstruct, resist, or call it what you will, slow the confirmation of the United States Attorney General. The US attorney was confirmed and sworn in yesterday, 2/9/17.  Had he already been confirmed, he would have most likely presented a more excellent argument at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, but I am doubtful that the decision this court will rule on (as it now has), would have been any different. That should’ve been, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals should’ve never even heard the case and the judge in Washington, should’ve never challenged it in the first place and especially with words such as causing, “irreparable harm.” Those are the Washington state judge’s words that this so-called ban has produced, “irreparable harm.” One of the current countries is Syria and recently,  after this order was signed by the president, a Syrian was allowed into this country, for emergency medical treatment, which could certainly be argued that had they not received it, it could have caused irreparable harm. Inconvenience to businesses, workers and families are not the same as irreparable harm. And whether or not that this order was rolled out properly, is not as important as national security, national sovereignty, and the protection of its citizens. Search for this, the research has already been done. Make it your own.

The likelihood of the presidential nominee to the Supreme Court, will be slowed and prevented from being confirmed, for as long as possible is, very likely. I suspect it is not only for the prevention of nine judges being seated on the Supreme Court or overturning what the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will likely decide shortly. If there are not nine justices seated, the case goes back to its last court, which in this case would be, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The research about this exists. Search for it.

The Supreme Court is supposed to be apolitical and that sounds great on paper, but many would argue that it is equally divided with four conservatives and four more, liberal judges. The presidential nominee if confirmed is, considered to be a conservative judge and his decisions aligned with four others, would overturn the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals if so they decide and the order would be left in effect and the stay lifted. You search and research these things.

But there is something else to consider or I should say, someone else. Supreme Court judge Kennedy, resides over the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. He is often a swing vote as his record shows, he is highly resistant of anything which prevents or lessons judicial power and especially, judicial review. Judicial review, in my opinion, is unconstitutional and only came about because, judges did not feel they had enough to do in the Supreme Court. Since adoption of the Constitution in 1789, courts have played around with the idea. In 1803, a law was struck down as being “unconstitutional” for the very first time, by the Supreme Court. Ever since that case, the Supreme Court seems to believe that judicial review is their constitutional right. Even judges are human beings, appointed for life with passion, political leanings and etc. but judicial review sets the precedence that it is the judiciary which determines what is or what is not law and has led to the idea of, “legislating from the bench.” Research it yourself.

“ You seem … to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps…. Their power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves.”

-Thomas Jefferson 1820-

The US Justice department, now with Attorney General Sessions sworn in, could request an en banc. In law, an en banc session (French for “in bench”) is a session in which a case is heard before all the judges of a court (before the entire bench rather than by a panel of judges selected from them. Supreme Court justice Kennedy has a choice: He can either decide the appeal on his own or refer it to the full court of all 29, 9th Circuit Court judges to hear arguments from both sides. In a case of such national gravitas, he’ll probably chose the latter. Feuer says if Trump’s lawyers do appeal to the Supreme Court, “they’ll probably ask for an emergency stay of the Seattle judge’s nationwide injunction” Research these things and perhaps the unfamiliar terms here, for yourselves.

All three branches of government are supposed to be, equal branches and yet history has shown that each branch has tried to garner more power, for themselves. So, Justice Kennedy could side with the other liberal judges and the opinion could be decided 5 to 3, in favor of overturning the executive order. This of course depends on whether or not the Supreme Court hears this case, before the ninth Supreme Court justice is seated. And even if the ninth judge was seated, Kennedy could still side with the other four liberal judges and the outcome could be, 5 to 4. I would hold Media Matters accountable, for orchestrating this, as there are odds in their favor of success, with either the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals or the United States Supreme Court. Then, there are all the other pending lawsuits, basically about the same thing and basically orchestrated, by Media Matters. Research these things, for yourselves.

How would they or could such as Media Matters be, so calculating, devious, intentional and corrupt. They would argue that their efforts are in resistance to others which are, calculating, devious, intentional and corrupt. Call this the Hegelian Dialectic or order out of chaos, when your efforts pit the very institutions and its own people to accomplish, whatever is their intended end and by whatever means. Research these things and perhaps the unfamiliar terms here, for yourselves.

What could this all mean to you and I??? Does this mean our rights do not come from God, they are not protected by The Constitution, they are not executed by the executive branch and legislated by the legislative branch, but only exist, as what the judicial branch says is law and what is lawful or unlawful and of, to, and by whom????

orderofthecourt2Contrary to what many people believe, we are not a democracy. We are a representative republic. If We the People do not reform our government to be of, for and by the people, having three equal branches, we are not even a democracy, which is, the rule by a majority nor would we be a republic, which is ruled by law, but we would be ruled by an oligarchy, the rule(s) of a few, for all of the rest of us. That is not freedom, it is enslavement!

And the protestors deceived with good intentions, co-mingled with rioters that are often paid, and the media complicit in failure to report, and education failing to inform, are unraveling the very fabric of the Stars and Stripes of our Republic, whose flags they fly and trample beneath their feet.

And did you think this was just a mean-spirited, religious-banning executive order? Was it to protect our rights? Or will it be the end of, the United States of America, by order of the court?
