Just a few weeks ago I wrote a missive here presenting the case as to why we have an invasion on our southern border. I live in Texas which shares 1,254 miles of border with a failed state controlled by a transnational narco-criminal terrorist organization. And if you speak to the people along the Texas southern border, as I recently did in Hondo, they will confide in you that the narco-terrorists we refer to as the Mexican cartels have extended their span of control to our side of the border.
This is a very tumultuous and critical time in the life cycle of our Constitutional Republic. It was just a few weeks ago that I penned a missive titled "Constitutional Rights vs Ideological Rights” for this conservative platform. Who would have ever thought how quickly that writing would come to fruition? I must admit, after last week's apoplectic meltdowns by the progressive socialist leftists I have to wonder if they have ever read the Constitution of these United States of America?
As American citizens in the world's longest-running Constitutional Republic, what are we willing to defend?
The current President of the United States and Secretary of Homeland Security both took oaths to uphold our Constitution. In simple southern vernacular . . . they ain't!
I pray everyone had a truly blessed Resurrection weekend; that is what this past weekend was about. It was about one person, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, laying down His life for us to have eternal life. Last week I was honored to narrate Haydn's string quartet, The Last Seven Words of Christ on the Cross. It was humbling to read and explain the meaning of Christ's final words spoken from the cross.As well, this weekend allowed me to reflect back on some other words, four of which are the title of this missive. They are words that some men and women have vowed over the years in America. They are the words that have committed these Americans to sacrifice and perhaps make the last full measure of devotion—to give their lives--so that others can have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Greetings everyone and a Blessed Holy Week to you. I pray we never forget that it was just two short years ago that the Covid Crisis Tyrants sought to shut down Holy Week in America. And in many ways, these delusional usurpers of our Constitutional rights, freedoms, and liberties are not relenting.
Last week the Biden Administration announced it would be ending the Title 42 Covid restrictions on illegal immigrants. I find this to be very ironic as the Governor of Texas just renewed the Covid emergency declaration on 23 March. It would appear illegals have more rights than law-abiding Texas citizens. However, what is quite unconstitutional is the Biden administration's abdication of their constitutional duty under the "Guarantee Clause", Article IV, Section 4. The federal government is charged to protect every state in the union from invasion. And there can be no debate when millions are entering our nation illegally. This is not an immigration issue, it is indeed an invasion.
Perhaps some of you may recall that this whole idea of taxing income began in the early 1900s, circa 1917. Prior to taxing Americans based upon their income, taxation was based upon consumption, what people purchased. The personal income tax was supposed to be temporary, and not to exceed 2%. Yes, the joke is firmly upon the American people.
The situation in America is no longer about political parties. It is now about two very different philosophies of governance, constitutional conservatism and progressive socialism...Marxism. The crux of the matter comes down to the relationship between the individual citizen and the institution of government. Our founding documents, which Mystal believes are flawed because white men wrote them, establish the individual, their rights, freedoms, liberties, as sovereign over the institution of government. Mystal and his comrades do not believe that to be so.
National Archives posts ‘harmful content’ warning on Constitution, Declaration of Independence, other founding documents
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) determined recently that America's founding documents may be "harmful or difficult" for some users to view since they reflect "outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions."
