Abortions and Vaccinations are Federal 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. 

Since the American federal government is derelict in its duty to hold itself accountable, it is the duty of Americans to do so. The second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence gives authorization to take action when the government fails to obey and enforce its laws. A convention of states convened to make amendments to the United States Constitution sanctioned by Article 5 of the Constitution is perhaps the best way to remedy the lawlessness that is currently so prevalent in our country.  

The Convention of States (COS) Article V project has made great strides toward that end. Information on joining such an effort and a petition to support this project to bring about a convention of states restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress can be found at conventionofstates.com.    

The Freedom of a Dedicated Nation

One day of the year has been chosen to reflect on the American veteran. Likely for many, this is merely a symbolic gesture that may briefly stir up feelings of appreciation or patriotism, but as quickly as the thoughts and feelings come, they are met with an acknowledgement of inadequacies and abilities to properly honor the veterans of wars, conflicts, and guardian service to our nation. Perhaps honor can best be bestowed upon the veteran by our own effort to continue their work and sacrifice in whatever capacity we have been given.

The very existence of America is a miracle of God, and when we honor the veteran by mirroring their service, we also honor God to whom our country was dedicated even before its establishment. In 1607 the Jamestown settlers planted a cross on the shore of the new land and made this covenant dedication:

“We do hereby dedicate this Land, and ourselves, to reach the People within these shores with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to raise up Godly generations after us, and with these generations take the Kingdom of God to all the earth. May this Covenant of Dedication remain to all generations, as long as this earth remains… May all who see this cross, remember what we have done here, and may those who come here to inhabit join us in this Covenant…”

In confirmation of the Jamestown Dedication, thirteen years later those aboard the Mayflower made a compact which states, “Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia…”

Many years later the United States of America was established by God through the blood, lives and treasure of the first Americans on the battlefield and at the home front. Rising up against their oppressors they were granted victory, and through wisdom in governing principles we were given a land of freedom, peace, prosperity and protection.

Since that time, many Americans have become veterans of many wars, conflicts, and of guarding our nation. Now America has an enemy unlike any that it has ever faced. This one wears a thin patriotic disguise and occupies high places in our government and other influential positions. It is a greater threat to America than any in the past and requires the mass self-deployment of true patriots that will take their stand in whatever capacity that they are capable. Just as our veterans have paid a price for the freedom that is a hallmark for our nation, those of us who have enjoyed this freedom must also pay a price to maintain and regain it.

As a nation, we have not been faithful to the Covenant Dedication that marked the beginning of a noble heritage. The maintenance that freedom requires has been neglected and our blessings have been taken for granted. We have veered off course and are sailing back to a land of bondage, turmoil, poverty and danger, forsaking the heritage with which we were entrusted. May God allow us to correct our course and land once again on our own Jamestown beach with renewed vigor to carry forward the charge given to every American, and in so doing we can all be called veterans in that we serve to preserve the ideals and principles that have made America a light to the world.

When Lawmakers are Lawbreakers

It is difficult or impossible to pinpoint just when the tipping point was passed where America went from law and order to lawlessness and disorder, but we know we have long passed it. The incremental movement from one point to the other was left unchecked, then expedited, and now patriots hope to claw their way back to the freedom, protection, and providence that we once had. Those who love America and what it stands for now attempt to take a stand on the principles on which it was founded, while those in key government and other influential positions push it further off of its foundation.

Many patriots, exercising their constitutional right peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, as given in the first amendment to the Constitution, were arrested by those in charge of protecting that right. This assembly happened on January 6, 2021, when Congress was convened to count electoral votes that unaccountably favored Joe Biden. The grievances for which a multitude was assembled were well-grounded, because election laws had been broken across the country and thousands of votes had somehow been granted to Biden in the wee hours of the morning of the day after the election. Many of those arrested are still incarcerated and awaiting trial as of this August 4, 2022. This is in clear violation of the sixth amendment, which among other things, guarantees the right to a speedy and public trial. By all measures, waiting on a trial for well over a year is not considered speedy.

While those that exercised their constitutional rights languish in prison for doing so, the Biden Department of Justice and certain state justice departments are busy turning loose those who actually commit crimes deserving punishment, such as illegal aliens and U S citizens involved in looting and destruction of property. The government officials responsible for upholding liberty and justice are not held accountable for their dereliction of duty.

Violation of the Constitution is a common occurrence for the communist regime currently in Washington, as it was during the Obama administration, and to a lesser but still significant degree under administrations of the more distant past (Article 2, Section 3 of the U S Constitution). When the lawmakers and those in charge of enforcing law and order, and protecting the rights of the people are derelict in their duty, what avenues are open for the people to have law and order, and protected rights (10th Amendment)?

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.
