What happened to the Monroe Doctrine?

For almost 200 years the Monroe Doctrine has served America well. Established under the James Monroe administration in 1823, it has helped protect America from foreign countries intent on harming our republic by their encroachment into our hemisphere to establish ideologies and governments contrary and harmful to those of America. In recent times, the principle behind this doctrine has been abandoned to embrace an opposed doctrine.

This new doctrine became entrenched as a matter of policy under the Obama administration, although its leanings were becoming evident prior to Obama. One of the most, if not the most, damaging moves away from the Monroe Doctrine was taken by the U S Senate when it ratified the Torrijos-Carter Treaties in 1978, which gave away U S control and presence from the invaluable Panama Canal. Panama was given control of the canal and the ports on both ends, and they were jointly managed by Panama and the U S until during the Clinton administration, when long term leases were granted to China with little or no effort put forth by the U S to maintain any control or management of the Canal Zone. The leases gave China control over the canal and adjacent ports.

Since then, China has succeeded in port acquisitions on the U S west coast and in other countries of the Western Hemisphere. In 2012, the Obama administration signed on to a 40 year lease to China of the Port of Long Beach in southern California, the second largest container port in the U S. President Trump managed to force an early end to the lease because of the obvious security risk of leasing this port to a communist country.

In our own current day, the Monroe Doctrine has been completely discarded, and a doctrine of destroying America has been adopted by the U S president, the U S House of Representatives, the U S Senate, the U S Supreme Court, mainstream media, academia, church “leaders”, and many others. The issue of illegal immigration is an example of the adherence to this insidious doctrine of destruction. The military might of the U S forced the Soviet Union to forego plans of placing missiles in Cuba back in 1962. Under the questionable Obama administration, and now under the illegitimate Biden administration, any country could have its army march across the U S southern border and be welcomed with taxpayer funded transportation, lodging, and provisions. This is illegal of course, but legalities don’t mean much to the majority of the members of our branches of the federal government. The Monroe doctrine was meant to protect the Western Hemisphere, and now not only is the hemisphere unguarded, but the U S itself is unguarded.

The dangerous position of the U S is due to complacency of Americans, the turning from the Christian foundation of America, a corrupted election system, and corrupted politicians. There must be a course correction if America is to survive. A return to the Monroe Doctrine is a necessary step, but will require the course correction mentioned, and a restrengthening of American armed forces, as opposed to the direction the current commander in chief of these forces is taking.

Abortion and Vaccinations are not State Issues

There are many that claim the issues of abortion and vaccinations are concerns of the individual states and not of the federal government. Natural law and the two founding documents of the United States of America dispel this notion and affirm each individual’s security of life and liberty under God and under the authority of the United States federal government. While this federal government has acted contrary in its duty to protect life and liberty, it is nonetheless its responsibility, and ultimately its only responsibility.

The preamble to the United States of America’s Declaration of Independence cites natural law concerning life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It declares, “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.” This being established, any concession for abortion, which violently takes the life of a defenseless baby, is prohibited. Likewise, natural law encompasses the forcing of “vaccinations”. Since such enforcement affects life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, it is also unlawful.

The 4th Amendment to the Constitution states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” If we are to be secure in our persons against unreasonable searches and seizures, then certainly we should be secure against the afflicting and murderous hand of the abortionist, and against chemicals or anything else being forced into our persons.

There is no state or federal branch of government, or any other body or individual, that has any authority to breach the security that we as people possess in our persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. This being confirmed by the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is therefore established that it is a crime for one to force a substance into another’s body without the latter’s consent, or to take an innocent life. Those committing such crimes should be held accountable.

The Phrase “Color of Their Skin” is Really Getting Old

It is an often heard phrase that is as misleading as it is tiresome. “The color of their skin” is brought out often in discussions of racism, but has little to contribute to the topic. Skin color is insignificant compared to behaviour when forming judgements about a person; and by the way, surface differences aren’t just color, but also include facial and hair features. Just as we do not want to be around someone of our same color whose behavior we find disagreeable, so we do not want to be around someone of a different color whose behavior we find disagreeable.

Whether we like it or not, behaviour is in a general sense, coupled with skin color. Likewise, preferences are generally linked to skin color, which also can put off people who do not share those preferences. Without naming color, it is obvious that one color group’s behaviour tends to be loud and more animated, while another is more quiet and reserved. Preferences for the former group include bright colors and showy attire, while the latter prefers more subtle tones and vestments. Neither is necessarily right or wrong, just different. People are naturally going to be attracted to and group with like people, and if they want to be with people that are unlike them, that is their choice. This association should not be forced as it has been and is being done. Coerced love, respect, and acceptance has no lasting foundation. It is a weak and temporary facade that comes crashing down under pressure.

A nation is weakened when it is held hostage to the past. Much like the enemy of our souls attacks and attempts to weaken Christians by bringing up forgiven past sin, so the enemies of our nation employ the same tactic. The past sins of our nation are embellished in order to downplay the positive pursuits and progress of a country that has been a bastion of freedom and a benefactor to a world that to it is drawn. If we are to overcome this enemy, we must reject the lies that it relentlessly puts forth, and focus on truth. That truth is that faith, family, and freedom are blessings that The God of the Holy Bible has poured out on America, and He has given us the responsibility to hold and defend these so that our children can hold and defend them as well. “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” Psalm 33:12.

Let Freedom Ring

The words to the hymn, “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” speak to the time we are now in, a time in which the ring of freedom is fast fading. How many can sing the first verse of this song? In how many hearts would the words stir a patriotic passion to regain and retain the freedom for which many have suffered and died?

The current Coronavirus hype and hysteria have caused many to trade precious freedom for the “safety” offered by “experts” and the “government”. The hymn mentioned above contains the phrase “land where my fathers died”, but the land will now be known throughout history as “land where the people were scared of a typically nonfatal virus, so we gave up our freedom and on the government we relied.” The God given rights of liberty and the pursuit of happiness ingrained in the Declaration of Independence, and the First Amendment affirmation of the right of assembly and the free exercise of religion have been taken away (willingly given away by many) as if America had suddenly been taken over by some callous communist regime. Deceit and fear have quickly led many to comply with what is obviously a devastating blow to liberty and economic stability. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/apr/18/coronavirus-and-smell-saul-alinsky/

Who could believe that to stop a serious but usually nonlethal virus, American citizens would be ordered to shut down their “nonessential” businesses for weeks or months, to not send their children to school, and to stay put in their homes; that prisoners would be released so they wouldn’t spread the virus to each other; that citizens would be herded like lemmings through “essential” establishments, while of course keeping the arbitrary six feet apart rule; that weddings and even funerals would not be allowed; and that our elected officials would unconstitutionally authorize an astronomical amount of the people’s own money, and money that doesn’t even exist, to be redistributed in an attempt to appease and to justify forcing them to not earn wages. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/coronavirus-stay-at-home-orders-protests-economy https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/25/politics/stimulus-package-details-coronavirus/index.htmlhttps://www.wfla.com/news/hillsborough-county/hillsborough-county-inmate-released-amid-coronavirus-concerns-back-in-jail-on-murder-charge/https://corporate.walmart.com/newsroom/2020/04/03/changes-to-our-shopping-process-to-encourage-social-distancing

The Covid crackdown is an attempt to topple what Leftists hate: a free people and Jesus Christ who gives that freedom. Can a nation long survive when likely one-fifth of the work force is not working for weeks and months? Time will tell the outcome of such unprecedented and criminal governmental action. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nqlUgDXKp0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x1zyRNmNzghttps://vimeo.com/ondemand/agenda2mastersofdeceit

Coronavirus Constitutional Crisis

Americans have never been in more danger of losing their sovereignty as we are now. This is not the result of a foreign invasion, although through weak border control foreign invasion has occurred and lends to the present danger of disease. This potential overthrow is by the hands of those in elected offices of government that disregard constitutional law, and by public compliance to this criminal act.

Precedence is being set for freedom to be taken from Americans. Sovereignty and freedom is precious. We sing about it, recite it, and many have suffered and died for it. Freedom means being able to choose the best course of action for our own lives and the lives of our families. Now we as a nation have been ordered to not assemble, and certain businesses have been ordered to close even though the U S Constitution expresses the right to peaceably assemble. While the Constitution gives no such authorization, Congress is about to once again reach its long arm into the shallowing pockets of Americans to prop up businesses and individuals.

What about the next crisis? What rights will be laid down and at what cost? Freedom will sometimes cost everything. Loss of freedom costs even more.
