In these sentiments, sir, I agree to this Constitution, with all its faults, if they are such; because I think a General Government necessary for us, and there is no form of government, but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered; and believe further, that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other.
– Benjamin Franklin
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
– John Adams
I’m of the opinion that many today are throwing the “baby out with the bathwater” when they claim the conservative versus liberal (right vs. left) construct is phony, or bogus.
Conservatives have lost political ground because they have accepted the moral premises of the Political Left. However, liberals use deception to hide their real motives while, simultaneously, blackmailing conservatives by means of conservative values.
How typical was the mainstream media’s “poor immigrant children” narrative that played the emotional heartstrings of dummies everywhere, like violins.
In the immigration debate, as in the gun control polemic, liberals don’t actually care for the children; at least not in the ways they profess. They instead callously use the “children” as a means to consolidate their political power.
This explains why liberals never rejoiced for the offspring of lawless invaders when Trump signed the executive order to keep illegal immigrant families together. Instead, they claimed Trump “caved” before the [manufactured] “humanitarian and political crisis”. It’s also why children still attend schools in gun-free zones, while anti-gun protester David Hogg is protected by armed guards; because he’s more important than the other children now.
The Political Left consistently weaponizes the morality of conservatives against said conservatives; and whenever those on the right of the political spectrum accept the moral premises of the deceptive left, the progressive agenda moves “forward”.
Nevertheless, the value systems of conservatives and liberals are separate. This is why words like “freedom” and “rights” hold different meanings for each group.
In the example of the former, freedom and rights manifest as an outgrowth of natural law as defined in the whispers of John Locke. In the latter, these are processed according to the [Machiavellian] totalitarian’s interpretation of Nietzsche’s Will to Power.
The commonality of globalists, neocons, corrupt government officials, and tyrannical collectivists is demonstrated when they profess the moral superiority of their ideological positions and, simultaneously, abrogate timeless moral principles for their own benefit while telling us it’s for ours.
This is the heart of the matter. It is why decent Americans voted for Trump, flaws and all. He was elected in protest.
I had a friend text me the following rant that he saw on Facebook:
I still haven’t figured out why Hillary lost. Was it the Russian uranium deal? Was it Wikileaks? Was it Podesta? Was it her sexual predator husband? Was it her staff’s husband’s immoral pictures? Was it her subpoena violation? Was it the corrupt foundation? Was it the congressional lies? Was it the Benghazi scandal? Was it the pay for play? Was it the Travel Gate scandal? Was it the Haiti scandal? Was it the Whitewater scandal? Was it the Cattle Gate scandal? Was it the $15 million for Chelsea’s apartment bought with foundation money? Was it Comey’s investigation? Was it her husband’s interference with Loretta Lynch and the investigation? Was it stealing debate questions? Was it forensically deleting 33,000 emails? Was it the secret server in her house? Was it the Seth Rich murder? Was it calling half of the USA population deplorable? Was it the underhanded treatment of Bernie Sanders? Was it the Vince Foster murder? Was it the Jennifer Flowers assault? Was it the $800,000 Paula Jones settlement? Was it the lie about taking on sniper fire in Bosnia? Was it her husband’s impeachment for lying under oath? Was it the 6 billion $ she “lost” when in charge of the state department? Was it the 10 million she took for the pardon of Marc Rich? Or was it because she was the worst presidential candidate our country has ever had to choose from?
Gee, I just can’t quite put my finger on it, but it seems to be right in front of me.
Here was my reply:
That’s a great rant. But the reason we are likely doomed is this: After all that, she still won the popular vote.
We live in a land populated by the People of Walmart sustained by a steady diet of fake news, processed foods, electronic fairy tales, and antidepressants.
The trends (i. e. transitional revelations) are pointing towards war and global depopulation; exactly what the Technocratic Elite desire and right on schedule. Any attempt to divert from those outcomes would be akin to a flea trying to steer a dog like a horse.
The D.C. chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America shared a video on Facebook of activists booing and yelling at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at Mexican restaurant and calling on her to “abolish” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
– A year after the congressional baseball shooting that almost took the life of Rep. Steve Scalise and former Hill staffer Matt Mika, members of Congress expressed concerns for their safety as threats against them have skyrocketed.
– A plan to split California into three separate states earned a spot on the November ballot there.
– Because she works for President Trump, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and 7 of her family members were kicked out of a Virginia restaurant.
– Screaming “God is on our side”, California Congresswoman, Maxine Waters, implored her supporters to harass Trump administration officials in public spaces.
– Because “there are simply not enough police in D.C. or Virginia or Maryland to protect all Trump officials at their homes and when they go out to restaurants”, the president of the “influential” Crime Prevention Research Center urged officials in the Trump administration to arm themselves.
The mainstream media has engaged in an effort to turn Trump supporters into “Public Enemy # 1”; and now, even the politicians are warning of the forthcoming civil war.
Have you ever cautioned someone over inevitable consequences only to have them blaze ahead anyway? Then when you were proven right, your anger at their stupidity was righteous, was it not? Especially if any of the consequences affected you.
The Political Left today has extreme anger at those in America who voted for Donald Trump. It is because they believe Trump to be the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler who is currently in the process of destroying the Obama-nation.
Now imagine, if you will, how their anger will be magnified when Trump’s trade wars and tax cuts are blamed for the Next Great Depression.
Today, the Congressional Budget Office announced that growing U.S. budget deficits have pushed public debt to 78% of the nation’s gross domestic product. This, even as investors grow increasingly anxious over rising interest rates and bank stocks surpass their record “longest losing streak ever”.
Of course, the doubling of the national debt under Obama, or the Federal Reserve’s six (6) rate hikes since Trump’s election, will not be blamed.
Make no mistake: There WILL be a financial crash and Trump WILL be blamed. You can take that to the bank (pun intended). It’s only a matter of time.
After the crash, the support for Trump from the political right will fade like the light of day after sunset; while the vitriol of the left will rise and crash over the land like blue tsunamis under the full moon after an ocean quake.
All they have is hatred for Trump and his supporters now. It will only grow worse. And they are everywhere.
When The Office of the First Lady contacted the Secret Service after the actor Peter Fonda called for President Trump’s son, Barron, to be kidnapped and caged with pedophiles, I was reminded of a 1980’s movie, starring Tom Hanks, called “The Burbs”. The satirically comedic story told of a group of neighbors in the suburbs awakening to the actuality of satanic murderers living next door.
In “The Burbs” a clip was shown of the 1975 film, “Racing With the Devil” which, ironically, starred Peter Fonda as a vacationer who came across a secret society of Luciferians deeply entrenched over what appeared to be the entire state of Texas. My friends and I were underage when we snuck in through the back door of the movie theater to watch that film. Needless to say, it was a long walk home that night in the dark.
Indeed. The enemy is everywhere; and there can be no escape.
Therefore, the more I contemplate the concepts of morality and the future, the more I reconsider the old philosophical constructs.
Could the approaching “civil war” actually be spiritual in nature? Like a holy war?
The ancient prophet Jeremiah, by way of King James, phrased it thusly:
…Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk therein’.
– Jeremiah 6:16
There is no longer a dividing wall between hope and realism; liberty and chaos.
It is what it is. Nothing more, nothing less.
Prepare and, for those so inclined, pray.
Who said life was fair? And who was it again that promised you that rose garden?
Si vis pacem, para bellum
When we step into eternity the devil will have no more power than the list souls that will join him in the lake of fire.
I don’t need to run anywhere. My Green Tip Steel Penetrator warnings of “DO NOT COME ANY CLOSER TO ME OR MY PROPERTY”, FLY @3200 Ft Per second. Can ya run that fast Aholes?
So true, Menzo!
To maintain the peace, prepare for war.
John Adams was right about a lot of things, but from his quoted statement above I believe he could have left out the word ‘religious’. Moral is good enough to make our constitution work. Religion is not needed. Really, just decent people with a general sense of equity and fairness is all that is required. It still wouldn’t be perfect even then, but that would be better than what we have now.
rrrr – you’ve a good point. I’d question only the source or origin of morality. The usual assumption is that to be ‘moral’ requires some higher power to compare our conduct to in terms of right and wrong. Whereas people can be ‘decent’ to one another, the question becomes ‘why?’. For what purpose do they do so? What measure or scale to they compare what is that – good or bad – to? I personally do not believe in the concept of ‘fair’. For life and nature is not fair per se. Is it fair if a mouse is eaten by a cat? For the cat, yes. For the mouse, I can only figure it thinks that outcome is unfair. Without a God, mankind would cease to have any reason to act in a manner that was equitable. The strong only would prosper. And strength would be measured by any attribute that was superior in the matter at hand. Be it physical, mental or some other venue (financial, possession of …. something needed, sexual attractiveness…). So? What does it mean to be religious after all? I’d offer to you that it gives a cause, an entire level greater than man or present in this tangible existence we occupy to aspire to and to have to live up to a code of behavior that would not be needed if we only relied upon our individual wills.
Yeah.Leave Jesus out and everything will be ok.We don’t need no stinking moral compass.
There is no such thing as morality absent acknowledgement of a higher authority. If there is no God, the concept of morality, of good & bad, has no basis.
I would disagree strongly Stuart. I disavowed all religions and the existence of some man created ‘god’ long ago, once I realized humans are weak minded and need a ‘god’ to answer our three fundamental questions:
Where do we come from
Where do we go
Why are we here
If a person can accept that we simply don’t know and not stress the fact that all life and the universe and everything is simply ‘here’, then religion and religious beliefs are not necessary.
That being said, my morals are quite strong and I’ve always known the difference between ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. As if I need a ‘god’ to tell me that murder or f#$king you neighbors wife is wrong.
You can disagree all you want but that doesn’t change the fact that morality doesn’t exist in nature. There is no “right or wrong” in the animal kingdom. It is a human concept based on accountability to a higher power and the fact that we are created to be above the other creatures. To have dominion over them and thus responsibility for them. Naturally, if the concept of right & wrong applies to the treatment of animals, it would apply to mankind also.
If a person doesn’t understand that then the intelligent course of action would be study philosophy. Until you do your beliefs are baseless.
Well said Stuart. Deep philosophical discussions and analysis usually come to that conclusion. “There is no RIGHT or WRONG in the animal kingdom.” Accountability to a higher power (GOD) is necessary to expect morality.
Stuart, if you’re saying that animals (in the animal kingdom) have no morality I think scientists would disagree.
Just finished reading “An Essay on Morals” by Philip Wylie, one of the most brilliant men of the 20th century. And he would take your argument apart.
Animals kill for self preservation. To eat. To protect their young, to maintain territory (and that is for the first two).
In the animal kingdom, name one animal that murders for sport, for thrill, for economic gain or any of the “reasons” that man does.
My kitty cat kills for fun. Lots of lizards meet their end! She never eats them. But she is affectionate and loving to me. I have the can opener!
ronna, yes, but domesticated animals do that. Don’t ask me why. Our dog kills any small snake on our property, quickly and then walks away. I think in their ancestry, they are killing to eat, but their tastes have changed. Our dogs wouldn’t eat fresh killed fried dove.

Its not to late
You cannot have morality without a basis. Without “religion”, implied to be Christianity in your post, there is no reason for morality as morality is a social construct with fluidity which changes from person to person and time to time.
THERE IS MORE CORRUPTION IN RELIGION THAN MOST ANY SECTOR OUT THERE. RAPING CHILDREN TO DEFRAUDING THEIR CONSTITUATIENTS WITH FALSE PROMISES OF EVER LASTING LIFE. WE NEED TO HANG EVERY ONE OF THESE LIARS AND SCAMMERS AT THE PULPIT.
TharSheBlows, yes all that happens in religions. But the real underlying wrong or issue with all religions is that you must have them as a go between to have any morality or decency or to know God in any way because they are smarter or some how better or closer to God than you ? That is the big secret, the big sham , they are none of those things at all ! And yo do not need any of that crap to simply understand right from wrong. That is what the law of one is all about, simple understanding of the universe as it exist. Most people likely would be well past shocked to fully grasp who God actually is ! They have been mind fucked so thoroughly and completely they do not have a clue.
As well only in USA do we give fat people electric carts at Walmart to go buy more junk food to get fatter and even more unhealthy and then pay for their self induced ailments and complaints ! All the while invoking God for our decency and humanity ?
The constitution is just a worthless piece of paper that can be easily disregarded with a single pull of the trigger.
Yeah, but while you’re waiting to pull the trigger it’s good to have at least a reasonable guide for bureaucrats written down somewhere. Some of them will actually follow it.
It is kinda like a padlock. Padlocks keep honest people honest.
Yes sir, That is a hard one for me…
Others may disregard the Constitution with a single trigger pull but I will not, I can not allow it to go unchallenged…
It may cost me my life just as crossing a busy street might but I only know of one higher possibility of government and that will be when Christ comes to rule…
Those very ideas we opposed on the battlefield have ingrained themselves into our schools, our institutions of higher learning and into the marrow of our government…
Our complacency has allowed the cancer of tyranny to flourish…
I am sure I was naive while in service and no doubt was part of a larger body that fought for oil and corporate gains, I however personally executed my duties to the fullest extent of my abilities and never bowed before the enemy…
My sight now is much clearer as to the realities of those days, however I never personally surrendered my honor… I am sure this sounds naive to some but the alternative to holding onto the tattered shreds upon which this nation was founded on can be seen in the history books…
With the appointment of another supreme justice by President Trump, we come to blows sooner than anticipated…
What is the alternative for this nation if we give up the fight???
Yes, she still won the most votes. But I read somewhere that there are 3,000 counties in the US, and she only won 37 of them. The authors of the Constitution understood very well that areas of high population should not be allowed to control the whole country.
… and that is precisely why Senators were appointed by the state legislatures. It kept the large population centers from running rampant on everyone else. Then that socialist asshole Wilson got that changed and this is exactly the result he wanted.
You got that right. Repeal the 17th…
She did not win the popular vote, if you leave out the dead voters, illegal immigrants, felons, and those who voted more than once.
It’s a coming at some time in the not too distant future. I was up unable to sleep last night worried about just what this man has written. I worry for my kids futures. Not shaping up to be a very nice place and I don’t see any way to mitigate the impact on my life. I am thinking of things to try, but seems no matter where or what you can do, it is going to be hell to pay one way or another. Too many people are disgusting idiots these days. Take a good look around.
The attacks on Trump by “the left” are really an attack on white Americans of European descent by a 3ew led coalition of other races, primarily blacks and Hispanics but also Asians united against white power, which ironically is the only thing that will save them from their own folly.
Trump should arrest everyone publicly calling for violence against himself, his children (particularly the ten year old) and his entourage. What Peter Fonda said was so disgusting that I am shocked, and believe me, not much shocks me anymore.
The biblical reference to Jeremiah is interesting. The Catholic Church in “modernizing” has led to a schism within The Church and spawned a small group of “traditionalists” who adhere to the old ways which predated the 1965 Second Ecumenical Council.
We have secularists calling for a return to 1965 demographics of a 95% white population, Christian, and pre-“civil rights” legislation/affirmative discrimination and forcing whites to end segregation.
Just as apartheid kept blacks and whites separate in South Africa, segregation in the USA kept the races apart. Without segregation, whites are not safe. Without whites, blacks revert to a less functional system which relies heavily on brute force to their own detriment and the detriment of everyone else, especially white people.
Yes, Jeremiah is correct. We should return to the old ways.
I would agree: it is a demographic tipping point from a white America to something else. As history and experience shows us, what emerges – a country run by a messy and corrupt splodge of blacks, Muslims, Hispanics and Asians – will not be the same place. By the day, it will resemble what we see in Africa and Latin America: dysfunctional and corrupt states that only survive because of the crooked aid and financial system keeping them going so that they can be looted of their natural resources.
Just as girls do better in girl-only schools, so whites do better in whites-only countries. Otherwise, they get dragged down by the cost of maintaining failed communities. The cost the US has had to take on to cope with black crime alone is astronomical: it could have paid for several space programmes and free university education for all white youth.
I didn’t believe this before but I do now: the most sensible option is to create new states that are based on one successful race, ie: like Japan, China, Korea, etc. We should be flexible and creative enough to see this and stop clinging to flags and symbols that no longer liberate, but instead imprison. Our ancestors lived in a world that was more flexible. If they did not like the place they were living, they would create a better place. They didn’t just sit there and worship some degenerate European king or queen.
By all means make deals with other states, but do that on a win-win basis. Do not get stuck having to support losers or people wanting to just live off your surplus.
I remember in the runup to the election during the debates that Lester Holt frowned upon and cut off Trump while strongly favoring Clinton. It stood out like a freshly hammered thumb. Of course I thought they both sucked and still do. I prefer this truth quote: “No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” -James Madison. So true and greatly relevant today.
B your a ridiculous old racist , how can you lump Asians in with blacks and border jumpers ? The number don’t lie when it’s obvious the make beautiful neighbors and citizens where ever they are in the worls
Asians tend to vote democrat and cry racism when it suits them. Get you head out of your butt flathead! Btw why dis old people?
Silver is the money of pimps and pussy is the money of woman
We are screwed. Trump is far better than Hellery. But he is a friend of Isreal and the 3ews. And there is indeed a war being waged against the White folks of European descent. look at what is happening in south Africa. Some day that very same thing could happen here. and a genocide of land owning white folks be endorsed by the government. I simply don’t have a clue how its going to play out. I don’t have a clue of when it will change from a slow creeping osmosis to a full blown SHTF WROL event. But one fact I am certain of. Too many Parasite Takers and Too few Producing Makers is not long term sustainable. So eventually it will change from every regression being the(new normal) to mayhem and complete lawless behavior and no rule of law.
I would not discount Trump out of dismantling the 3ew factor here in the US. He may have that agenda on the back shelf after he destroys and busts up all their kneecaps and legs to be mobile, like their MSM, Fed Reserve, Hollywood, Supreme Justices, and other judges around the country. Trump may just be setting the table for the final slaughter. Art of the Deal.

I would like to remind anybody that thinks it’s a good idea to continue to let nearly 3 million, mostly non-white,, migrants into the US every year, that affirmative action and quotas are still on the books. The new migrants go to the front of the line for education and job opportunities. In front of you, your kids, grand kids and nieces and nephews. And soon, when you are a minority, don’t expect the quotas to ever work in your favor. They were designed to hurt you, not produce some type of fair play for non-whites.

Conservatives are the good guys
Liberals are the anarchist and haters
The right needs to step up its game and begin to fight fire with fire
We as a Block of voters need to organize and use our buying clout to bring the left down.
We need a web site that publishes the lefts companies that donate to their cause
and we boycott their products/services.
It would be great also if this site could show the progress of the effect of the boycott – I think it would be a big hit – Any smart young conservatives out there???
“We live in a land populated by the People of Walmart sustained by a steady diet of fake news, processed foods, electronic fairy tales, and antidepressants.”
Sounds like a few of the posters here. Particularly the part about “they believe fake news.”
Election’s over, Hillary. You lost…
‘For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.’
this is just getting started. the conservative talk heads are worried someone will be killed over political beliefs, I am not; I know that’s going to happen; many will be; the hard left is showing already that nothing is accdeptable except submission.
sad, sad, sad state this country has become.
A Rasmussen poll came out today saying that 31% of the USA expects a civil war sometime in the next 5 years.

This was an enjoyable, though flowery article. I think all wars are spiritually at the foundational level.
Good vs Bad. The Christian morals upon which this country was founded must never be abandoned.
