ON GLOBAL WARMING BY FREEMAN DYSON


Reading online, and came across this great website on Freeman Dyson.   In a nutshell, and as one of the world's top scientists on environmental studies, the conclusion is:

THERE IS NO SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS ON GLOBAL WARMING.

NO DUH!

And OF COURSE: there are those who are well paid and supported by the global cavat who have everything to gain from injecting fear into the world's population that Global Warming is going to be our very own doomsday unless we do exactly as they say, and these people do their best to discredit him and call him a heretic.

I find that one of the surest ways of finding truth is to see who the majority of the world's elite are AGAINST, and where popular opinion lies, then look at those they are trying to defame.  That is where you find a lot of truth, a lot of the time.

I've tried to help others understand that Global Warming is a hoax for over 10 years now. But you know what they say, you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. So sadly and frustratingly true.

Well, for those who do see the value in drinking water to stay alive and well, here is info about and from Freeman Dyson, including an AWESOME READING LIST that will make its way into my brain one day - as soon as I read the other 100 books piled up on my desk that are waiting in line. Who knows, maybe one or more of these just might "jump in line" so I can read them first. They look fascinating to me!

Enjoy!

"Freeman Dyson is a scientist of enormous stature. For more than four decades, he taught theoretical physics at Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study - described by the New York Times as "the most rarefied community of scholars" in the US.

"In a recent 8,000-word profile, the Times says Dyson is "a scientist whose intelligence is revered by other scientists." One colleague describes him as "infinitely smart." Another says: "You point Freeman at a problem and he’ll solve it. He’s extraordinarily powerful.”

"The idea that global warming is the most important problem facing the world is total nonsense and is doing a lot of harm."


"It makes very little sense to believe the output of the climate models."


"There is no doubt that parts of the world are getting warmer, but the warming is not global."


"Just because you see pictures of glaciers falling into the ocean doesn't mean anything bad is happening...It's part of the natural cycle of things."


"The average ground temperature of the Earth is impossible to measure since most of the Earth is ocean...So this average ground temperature is a fiction."


"When I listen to the public debates about climate change, I am impressed by...the superficiality of our theories."


"Computer models of the climate...[are] a very dubious business if you don't have good inputs."


"Climate change is part of the normal order of things, and we know it was happening before humans came."

- Freeman Dyson, American physicist

~         ~         ~

Freeman Dyson is now retired, having been for most of his life a professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. He was born in England and worked as a civilian scientist for the Royal Air Force in World War II. He graduated from Cambridge University in 1945 with a B.A. degree in mathematics. He went on to Cornell University as a graduate student in 1947 and worked with Hans Bethe and Richard Feynman. His most useful contribution to science was the unification of the three versions of quantum electrodynamics invented by Feynman, Schwinger and Tomonaga. Cornell University made him a professor without bothering about his lack of Ph.D. He subsequently worked on nuclear reactors, solid state physics, ferromagnetism, astrophysics and biology, looking for problems where elegant mathematics could be usefully applied.

Dyson is a fellow of the American Physical Society, a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and a fellow of the Royal Society of London. In 2000 he was awarded the Templeton Prize for progress in Religion, and in 2012 he was awarded the Henri Poincaré Prize at the August meeting of the International Mathematical Physics Congress.

He has written a number of books about science for the general public.

“Disturbing the Universe” (1979) is a portrait-gallery of people he has known during his career as a scientist.

“Weapons of Hope” (1984) is a study of ethical problems of war and peace.

“Infinite in All Directions” (1988) is a philosophical meditation based on Dyson’s Gifford Lectures on Natural Theology given at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.

“Origins of Life” (1986, second edition 1999) is a study of one of the major unsolved problems of science.

“From Eros to Gaia” (1992) is a collection of essays and lectures, starting with a science-fiction story written at the age of nine, and ending with a mugging in Washington at age fifty-four.

“Imagined Worlds” (1997) is an edited version of a set of lectures given in 1995 at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem about human destiny, literature and science.

“The Sun, the Genome and the Internet” (1999) discusses the question of whether modern technology could be used to narrow the gap between rich and poor rather than widen it.

“The Scientist as Rebel” (2006) is a collection of book reviews and essays, mostly published in The New York Review of Books.

“A Many-colored Glass: Reflections on the Place of Life in the Universe” (2007) is an edited version of a set of lectures given in 2004 at the University of Virginia.

'DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER - THE DECLINE OF THE HUMAN FAMILY', A MUST SEE!

THE DANGEROUS MYTH OF THE OVERPOPULATON OF THE WORLD

"The prediction of extreme population growth in the next centuries is not only a myth, but a dangerous one."

Such is the intro to an article I just read, and it's an article YOU should just read.

I'd like to trumpet it out for the Universe to comprehend how we are being lied to and manipulated.


I remember 40+ years ago (and no doubt it was going on waaay before that) how "we" (ie: the nations in the world that were not starving to death) were sending MoNeY over to nations like Africa, "because people have no food over there and they're dying, and we're trying to help them."

Fast forward 40+ years to today and guess what?  We are still "trying to help them."

So I have recently (in the past 10 years or so) begun to ask myself, "Why haven't they been helped yet?  Why are they still starving?  Why are they still dying?  Add up BILLION$ of money that the US and half of Europe, and several other nations have sent YEARLY to Africa, and multiply that by 40+ years, and you get....... no real change we can believe in?  


That is not good enough.  In fact, it's not good at all.  In fact again, it's smelling pretty fishy to me.

Along with many other "Fishy smelling" things I've questioned over the past 10+ years, I took this newer question and began doing more research on it. I tried to educate myself, both temporally and spiritually, regarding the matter. What I came up with is that God is in charge, He has given us live and provided an earth whereon we can dwell, and He as much told all humanity that so long as we try to keep His commandments and follow Him, that He will bless and multiply us and everything in this world for our benefit. Nothing will be found lacking. I also found that many of our "temporal" (ie: of the world) "scientific" and "global elite" community are LYING TO US.

So here are some article that I suggest you read as well, just to get you started on what is really taking place.  This should irk you to the point of wanting to get up and get more involved.  And please don't use the old "I'm not interested in politics" justification any more. YOU MUST NOW GET INTERESTED.  Or you will be part of what destroys this world. 

An excerpt from the article I just read today titled "Dan Brown's Inferno And The Dangerous Myth of Overpopulation":
"Looking for the facts, I found that the UN report on most likely population projections based on individual country census data predicts a worldwide population of only nine billion by the year 2100. We can easily feed seven billion now and surely can also feed nine billion. So the prediction of an unsustainable population used to justify extreme population control measures is false based on current population trends. This greatly surprised me. But why would a great researcher and writer like Dan Brown make such a terrible mistake as he prides himself in trying to make his thrillers to be factual in their historical and scientific claims?"

Read the rest HERE.

And, for your debunking enjoyment here are a couple of place you can begin reading some real truth, not the fake truth that the New World Order people want you to believe.

1.) Taking On The Overpopulation Myth, The Washington Times
2.) Episode 5: 7 Billion People: Will Everyone Please Relax?, OverpopulationIsAMyth.com




Let's remember, please:

We are being lied to by the people who really, truly desire to "run the world".  Their plan has been in existence for over 100 years, if not longer, and they never have intended on taking over all at one time. They have always known, and planned on, that it would take at least 100-200 years to take over the world.  They are insane and corrupt as the day is long. But they also unimaginably wealthy and have unimaginable amounts of "strings" they can pull throughout the world. So it IS possible that if we good people just sit back and do nothing, that they can, and will, eventually, "take over the world."

Not a Bueno idea.

So read up, and the buck up and start getting involved - your choice:  Local, State, or National.  But DO something to help keep our nation free.  And NO, we cannot spend one second on getting involved with other nations right now. We must keep our from sinking to the depths of the "Oblivion Ocean".

Oh! And one more thing - Even if you don't read up and do your research like I've asked, please at least watch the video I will posting in the following post titled " 'DEMOGRAPHIC WINTER - THE DECLINE OF THE HUMAN FAMILY', A MUST SEE! ".  It will explain exactly what you need to be aware of.

WHAT IS 'REGIONALISM'? BEWARE CITIZENS!

What is REGIONALISM?

Read up and find out, because it IS taking over YOUR city.  It has been implemented in many cities for decades.

Beware.  The "New World Order" is not a joke.

Please educate yourself as much as you can. Only if we know what we are fighting against, can we properly fight it and win.

May Providence help us. We will need His help.

"Regional Governance is the method whereby would-be world rulers intend to control every aspect of our lives. Without the full implementation of Regional Governance, their plan for world dominance cannot succeed.
     The following quotes should dispel any doubts about the veracity of the previous statement. From the book published in October of 1995 – in celebration of the UN’s 50th Anniversary – titled Our Global Neighborhood - The United Nations Report of the Commission on Global Governance : [emphasis added]
"REGIONALISM - The UN must prepare for a time when regionalism becomes more ascendant world-wide, and even help the process along. It is committed to doing so; the Secretary-General has called repeatedly for a strengthening of regionalism in global governance, in development no less than in peace and security." "The development of global governance is part of the evolution of human efforts to organize life on the planet, . . . we are convinced that it is time for the world to move on from the designs evolved over the centuries and given new form in the establishment of the United Nations nearly fifty years ago."
Could they have stated their aims more clearly than that?"

U.S SHAMED BY AFRICAN NATIONS, AND RIGHTLY SO

Deputy President William Ruto, Kenya:  The nation of Kenya is a God-fearing nation that will continue to reject homosexuality as wrong."

HOMOSEXUAL ACTIONS ARE AN ABOMINATON.

So says God.

Now, many African nations have surpassed America in morality.  Isn't that the epitome of irony?!

Catholic Cardinal, John Njue, Nairobi:  Those people (Americans) who have already ruined their society…let them not become our teachers to tell us where to go.

Uganda's Parliament is considering a bill to tighten that country's laws against homosexual behavior.  The greatest opposition has come from those outside the country.

Okumu Yudah Tadeo, from Restore Uganda, said the proposed legislation has experienced the greatest fight from mostly international governments (what business is it of theirs, I ask?) that have allowed their own morals to decay and eventually erode away in disguise of "human rights."  Uganda's cultural and religious values have thus far served to keep the country from slipping, and it is in Uganda's best interest to keep up the good morals and Godly values in this generation and the generations to come.

The U.S. is no longer the leader of the world. It no longer deserves that spot. We have become what the Lord calls "ripe in iniquity".   Go read the scriptures to find out what happens to those who are "ripe in iniquity".  Homosexual actions are an abomination, just as committing adultery and fornication are an abomination.  That does make one "homophobic" to believe in that truth. It makes them God-fearing, and honest.  We can and should love each other. That does not mean that we should accept each other's wrong choices as being good. There is a great cultural indoctrination going on currently trying to convince you that loving your neighbor is equal, and even defined by how well you accept all their wrong an unrighteous choices.  That is a falsehood. If we love someone, we will help them stand by truth, and we will not stand by unrighteousness next to them if that is where they choose to stand.

AMEN.

Here is the great article I was inspired by to write this post:



Controversial, Retired Anglican Archbishop of South Africa


Mr. Tutu, then you do not know God in the least!

Who are we to tell God what to think or command?  He created US, not the other way around.  Remember that part, Mr Tutu?  And if you want to know what God really believes about homosexuality, the begin by reading the scriptures and by checking out THIS Site.

Thank you.

AGENDA 21 - Why You Must Fight It With All You've Got

ATTENTION CITIZENS OF THE WORLD:

Please read the article  below then do more research on Agenda 21 beginning with this website:

http://www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com/

We must help spread the education of the evil of Agenda 21. It's a Trojan Horse. Your standard of living will be reduced to that of 3rd wold nations if you do not stand up against this and help educate others about it.
================================================

From the article:

"By working on the ground level, Transition Towns can over take states and nations quicker than funneling through the bureaucracy of national governments.

"This is why the UN Agenda 21 is so insidious. It attacks at the local level, getting the citizens of these towns and cities to fight for its implementation; all the while hiding its true nature.

"The future of our world under Agenda 21 means buffer zones, areas designated inhabitable for humans in the name of biodiversity and the securitization of all resources need for base human survival. And the UN will be at the helm.

This is the dream of the global Elite."

MAY DAY! MAY DAY! . . . .

A couple of days ago I noticed a poster/meme on a Facebook page that was a shout-out for May Day.  It basically said "Happy Worker's Day!" in Spanish.  I thought it was strange how other countries celebrate May Day as worker's day, but didn't go deeper in thought about it at the time, because... well... of lack of time.

Today, I ran across an article titled "History of May Day" and I clicked on it to read it. The article was short, interesting, and informative. I have been loosely aware of much of this information about other nation's celebrations of May Day and why they celebrated, but this just brought it all together in my head. So I wanted to share and "illuminate the possibilities" for your own world. ;-)

Part of the article reads:

Andy McInerney, a staff member of the communist Workers World Party and a leader of the ANSWER Coalition's illegal alien organizing effort, extolled the glories of May Day in the Spring 1996 edition of Liberation & Marxism. McInerney wrote:

Every year, the ruling classes around the world are again reminded of their vulnerability and of the power of their gravediggers. On May 1, the world working class displays its strength in demonstrations and strikes. May Day — International Workers' Day — is a reminder to the ruling classes that their days are numbered.... From 1919 onward, the success of May Day in the United States would depend on the success of the communist movement.

Now you can go read the full (short) article yourself HERE, and find out why that particular quote above is polar opposite of what we know to be the truth.

Let's do a good job of celebrating Labor Day this coming September 2, 2013!  :-)

"BUT WE *ARE* FREE! .... AREN'T WE?"

I posted this on my Facebook, then realized I should have posted it on here first. So here it is.

You must live it to know it. I've live in and traveled to third/second world countries where they only *think* they know what true liberty and freedom is. They have no idea what it is. The U.S.A is the ONLY nation in the history of the world to ever had have true liberty and freedom. But we've not had it fully since the mid 1800's. Our grandparents, parents, and we have grown up THINKING we live in a free nation, but we have not. We live with the illusion of freedom. We think and feel that as long as we have malls, restaurants, schools, doctors, and theaters to choose from, as long as we have choices in cars to buy, etc., that we are "free". That is inaccurate. Our liberties and freedom have been slowly stripped from us - chiseled away little by little - and if we don't all stand up TOGETHER and fight for them, we WILL lose them altogether.

Those of us who are sounding this 'cry' are not unlike Noah who sounded the cry thousands of years ago, and the world population just laughed and called them paranoid and conspiracy theorists. Do not make the same mistake they made please. Because if you do, you will wake up one day in shackles and chains and wonder how in the world you got there, and regret not having headed our warning and doing something about it while you still had the time.

How have we lost our freedoms/How do we not recognize it, you ask? Here is an example:

- You need a "license" to practice medicine, or drive, or do a number of other things. You think that's normal. You think it's logical. Only because that's the world you grew up in. But when you understand the big picture, including the past, you come to realize that it's not normal, it's an unnecessary restriction, and only a way of keeping track of you, and a way of "punishing" you should the state every want to. It is also a way of molding minds - the more we need "licenses" to do things, the less people trust anyone *without* a license, and the more conforming our world becomes into something "they" want it to become. Don't believe me? How accepting are you of taking you child to see a doctor that is not 'licensed' and that practices natural health before 'modern' medicine? 99% of people would not do it. And yet that doctor has a greater chance of knowing the true ailment and its correct course of treatment than any 'modern' doctor, and that treatments would not hurt/kill any 'good' inside your body, like 'modern' medicines to.

There are many other examples; things that we are so accustomed to that we no longer think of them as strange or intruding into our personal, God-given liberties. In fact, most of us think of these intrusions as "necessary" and "good for the whole of society". When in reality they are not. We have simply acclimated. Our society as a whole needs to be revamped and relearn what true liberty and freedom is, and how to attain it. I'm afraid that at this point, only blood will bring it back. And we cannot listen to other nations as they try to tell us what to do. They've never had true liberty or freedom. They only want us to suffer as they have, and be "as free as they are". They know not of what they speak. Our Founding Fathers were the standard of liberty and we must study them and their wisdom in full if we wish to learn what true liberty and freedom is. Let us wake up and strike out from our kings, tyrants, and dictators, regardless of how well they may be dressed in sheep's clothing (ie: Bush, Clinton, Obama, and all others). Let us wake up to the awfulness of our situation and learn what we can do about it. Beginning with returning fully to God, and going from there.

OBAMACARE & AGENDA 21

Another article worth ponder from Phyllis Schlaffly's Eagle Forum. 

If you've never heard of AGENDA 21, or know very little about it, please beware that it is a major effort, on a global scale, to bring the world into the "new slavery" - otherwise known as ultimate communism.  In case you're interested, and in case you're thinking it is just "us conservatives" that are fighting AGENDA 21, you can learn more about it from Democrats Against Agenda 21.

Meanwhile, here is the article on ObamaCore - the "new and revised" plan that has been replacing "No Child Left Behind" since 2009.



=======================        ======================





ObamaCore A Power Grab Like ObamaCare

When we list the areas that Barack Obama wants to “fundamentally transform” as he promised before his 2008 election, let’s not overlook his plans for education. They are as fundamentally transformational, costly and dictatorial as ObamaCare.
It’s well known that public schools are not graduating students as well-educated as formerly, that Americans score poorly on international tests, and that billions of federal dollars showered on public schools have not achieved any of the designated goals, which were to raise test scores and to eliminate the gap between higher income and lower income students. The Obama progressives want us to believe that the remedy is to turn over total control to the federal government.
That’s illogical and unacceptable, but it fits right in with Obama’s attitude that there is no higher power than the federal government. Now that Obama has been reelected, he will be able to accomplish this task with help from Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, a graduate of Chicago politics.
So the Obama Administration has latched onto a national education curriculum called Common Core that was launched by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers in 2009. Those organizations have very official names as though they are government agencies, but they are actually private groups financed by foundations such as Gates and various corporations.
Their plan is to induce all elementary and secondary schools to accept a comprehensive national education system that will enforce a national curriculum. National standards will be locked in by the tests students must take called assessments, which in turn are tied to teacher evaluation. The standards instruct the teachers what to teach so their pupils can pass the tests and teachers can get positive evaluations.
This process bypasses parents and state and local school boards, and will fundamentally transform education by dictating what every child will learn and not learn. Of course, the Obama crowd loves this because a takeover of the education system could be as consequential as the takeover of banks “too big to fail,” or of General Motors, or of the health industry with ObamaCare.
No Child Left Behind was a step in this direction, but it allowed the states to set their own standards. Common Core, on the other hand, requires all states to adopt the same federally endorsed standards.
This will be achieved by carrot-and-stick methodology. The carrot is the offer of federal money, such as Race to the Top money granted if, and only if, the states first adopt the Common Core standards. The stick is the threat to withhold federal funds from states that don’t obey.
Cato Institute researchers have concluded that despite the claim that the adoption of Common Core standards is technically voluntary, “adoption will almost certainly be de facto involuntary, and the standards themselves ultimately federal.”
What some opponents are now calling “Obama Core” ought to be held unconstitutional because the federal government has no power over education under the Constitution. Furthermore, Obama Core is unlawful since it violates federal laws that specifically prohibit the federal government from having any sayso over curriculum or tests.
The essence of Obama Core is control of curriculum because that is where minds are molded and stimulated to higher levels of learning, and character is formed. The standards for Math and English Literature are the only two subjects that have so far been released, and even those were made public only after the majority of states had signed up to use Obama Core.
Many parents will recognize the Math standards as what is called Fuzzy Math,i.e., teaching very little arithmetic or standard algorithms, and class time wasted in having kids describe how they got their answers instead of teaching them the best way to get correct answers. The English and Literature standards are worse because they omit traditional and classical literature, confine kids to boring informational readings such as instruction manuals, and fail to teach cursive writing.
The so-called standards are set low enough for most students to pass the tests. Education commentators say that the graduation standards do not prepare students for college work, and some admit that the goal is only to move kids to two-year community colleges with open admission.
The Obama Core advocates are even planning to impose their standards on private schools. As the school choice movement grows, the attempt will be made to force any private or charter school that accepts public funds to adopt Common Core standards and have their students take the national tests.
Obama Core is a comprehensive plan to dumb down schoolchildren so they will be obedient servants of the government and probably to indoctrinate them to accept the leftwing view of America and its history.

U.N. PLANNING A GLOBAL TAX THAT WILL HIT AMERICANS HARD

This article, like the rest from Eagle Forum, should be read and internalized by every American citizen.






The UN Wants to Tax Individuals

While President Obama and Speaker John Boehner have been deciding how high to raise taxes, United Nations delegates partying in Doha, Qatar are planning to impose a new kind of tax on Americans. UN conferees have been discussing how they can start a global tax that would hit Americans hard.
The UN bureaucrats are not deterred by the fact that Americans should be protected by our U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 7, which specifies that “all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.” The greedy globalist UN bureaucrats have been conniving for about 20 years to bypass Congress and tax individual Americans, and now they think they have devised a formula to do this.
Their vehicle for this travesty is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The UN convention delegates dream they can transform the economic structure of the world by a new global treaty using global warming fears (even though the globe has not warmed for the past 16 years).
UNFCCC’s executive secretary Christiana Figueres will call a “significant number of meetings and workshops” next year to prepare the new document. The plan is for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in 2014 to “convene leaders to mobilize the political will to ensure that the 2015 deadline is met” to start this global tax.
This new UN document will cap greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide, and replace our use of fossil fuels with renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. Government will be expected to subsidize green energy because plenty of evidence proves that alternate energy sources are far more expensive and cannot compete in the marketplace.
Obama gave a half-billion U.S. tax dollars to the solar-panel company Solyndra, which promptly went bankrupt and now is arguing about who will pay the $600-per-hour lawyers who worked on the deal. After Obama gave $133 million of a $249 million grant to a firm named A123 to make batteries for electric cars, that company went bankrupt, too, and has been auctioned to a Chinese company, Wanxiang Group.
The Doha delegates are salivating at the thought of creating a new $100-billion-a-year fund by imposing a first-ever global tax on the right to cause carbon dioxide emissions. This fund is to be headquartered in South Korea and sweetened by a gigantic flow of taxes on international monetary transactions, international shipping, and airline travel.
Agenda 21 is a document called the Declaration on Environment and Development and the Statement of Principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests, which was signed by 178 governments including President George H.W. Bush in Rio de Janeiro in June 1992. In 1995 President Bill Clinton followed up by an executive order that established a Presidential Council on Sustainable Development, giving globalist busybodies the excuse to work on it ever since.
Agenda 21′s goal is to “save the planet” and “sustain” life on Earth regardless of its adverse effect on human life and our standard of living. It is based on the very un-American notion that private property is “a social injustice since not everyone can build wealth from it.”
We certainly hope our Congress will reject any UN proposal to tax Americans or control our property rights. Farsighted Republicans adopted a Party Platform in Tampa Bay this year stating “We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty, and we oppose any form of U.N. global tax.”
To understand the relationship of Agenda 21 to taxes and property rights, you have to learn a new vocabulary of words and expressions. A basic dictionary of about a hundred words and phrases has been assembled by a group called Democrats Against Agenda 21, and here are just a few of the favorite words: climate change, Common Core curriculum, environmental impact, New World Order, outcome-based education, public/private partnership, quality of life, smart growth, social justice, growth management, high speed rail, land use policies, multi-use dwellings, sustainable development, and wildlands.
Agenda 21 lays down the rule that “Land . . . cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market.” The UN hopes to require every decision about property use to be based on environmental impact, global land use, and global population control and reduction, which means by the government, not by property owners.
The purpose of this UN attack on property rights is to reduce the U.S. standard of living to that of the rest of the world because the UN bureaucrats resent our prosperity using abundant energy. Agenda 21 was never approved by Congress or ratified as a treaty by the U.S. Senate, so Congress should have no trouble saying No to all UN tax or property restriction proposals.

OBAMA'S LITMUS TEST AND THE APOSTLE PAUL


0Bama's Litmus Test:

Will you fire on American Citizens when commanded to do so?

Yes? - then you may stay.
No? - then you must go. Please resign.

Hence, many high-end officials in the Military and Pentagon have and are resigning.
And many are staying. 


You can't make this stuff up.

It is incredible to me that the people are still so blind to this.

We refuse - absolutely refuse - to accept reality. We are afraid to accept it. We do not want to let go of our American ideal, our American dream, our safety and security right here "in the USA".

But by not accepting it, we are AIDING it. 

I wish there was a better way to wake up the American citizenry, than to just wait until half of us are dead.

Barrry Obama/Sateoro is a danger to America.
He is an enemy to America.
He is a friend of our common enemy and adversary.
We must work to get him ousted. There are no other options.

That being said, I must say that once you peel back all the layers of the "onion", you come to see that the bottom-line issue at hand is exactly what the Apostle Paul stated in Ephesians 6:20:

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.

There was a war in heaven before our birth. Lucifer vs. Jesus. Those of us who are blessed to have been born on earth were on Jesus' side. When Lucifer was kicked out of the Garden of Eden, he was cast out to the earth. He promised he would rule the earth through gold, silver, armies, navies, etc. All the power was to be his. And he wanted all the glory.  He also wanted to take as many of God's children from earth with him to outer darkness once this life was over. The satisfaction of causing even more of God's children to leave Him, as he had the first 1/3rd of them. 

That war in heaven?  THAT is what has always been taking place here on earth. It began with Cain killing Able, and continues today. 0bama and others are ultimately only puppets to those who stand "behind the curtain" and are following the adversary's plan. 

Our HOPE lies in following Jesus' plan. That is the only antidote to the ills this world faces.  And while we live His plan, and keep His commandments, we fight continue to for what is right.

CHEMTRAILS - LIKE CROP-DUSTING, ONLY THIS TIME YOU ARE THE CROP

I repost this article because it is important information to have.

 Introductory Overview of Chemtrails (written May 1999 By Ken Adachi)
For over a year, the military has been spraying the skies throughout America, Canada, and now parts of Europe (including Britain, France, and the Netherlands) with substances that were initially referred to as "mystery contrails" , but later were named "chemtrails" by investigative reporter and author William Thomas.  When questioned, military and government officials either deny any knowledge of these sprayings outright or they offer unbelievable  and ludicrous explanations that only a moron could believe. Joe Burton has been aggressively investigating and reporting on this story from early on. Apparently he had been too aggressive, because his house had been targeted for direct spraying by low flying, unmarked aircraft.  In a story posted  Feb. 15, 1999, Joe reports the physical symptoms that his family and his pet have been experiencing from the sprayings. Joe believes that many of these military tankers responsible for the sprayings are remote controlled aircraft, but Al Cuppet (6 years with the US Joint Chiefs of Staff) has told radio talk show host  Jeff Rense during interviews on June 1, 1999May 16, 1999, and May 7, 1999 felt that many of these tanker planes were more likely being flown by foreign pilots, possibly Chinese or Russian.
Some Background:
Symptoms from Chemtrail sprayings
A One, Two Punch?
On February 20, 1999, strange "Contrails"  were reported over Long Island, NY by  'concerned citizens' who also took photos. These photos reveal the characteristic"X" mark seen in almost all cases of chemtrails. Earlier this year, reports by Ken Welch have been posted on various sites on the Internet. His reports are titled Contrail Spraying of Cities is Real  Part 1 , Part II, and Part III  These articles chronicle Ken's apprehension and dismay at the discovery that the United States government was brazenly spraying the skies of southern Texas on April 9, 1999 with Chemtrails. Ken has also posted E-mails at his web site that were sent to him in May '99 of  reports of  sprayings over South Carolina  and Indiana . In June, a report from Florida said that sprayings had been going on for weeks over the Ft Lauderdale and  Jacksonville areas, including military bases.

It is being reported that people with average or below average immunity are experiencing pneumonia-like respiratory symptoms, while people with stronger immunity are only experiencing slight discomfort for a day or two or no symptoms at all. Some people have gotten very ill and the symptoms seem to keep returning after a short period of improvement. It's possible that some of these sprayings might contain special bioengineered pathogens designed to affect only certain racial groups.

Radio talk show host Jeff Rense has offered the idea that these sprayed pathogens might be part of a Binary weapon system. In other words, a second  substance might be required (aerial spraying or substances added to the water supply  for example) to bring out the virulent phase of the pathogen, but of course this is only speculation. Rick Malinowski's long and detailed article also suggest the notion of a 2 or 3 part piggy back element to the chemtrail sprayings. My own suspicions are that these sprayings are intended for multiple purposes including low level population reduction (see NWO Population Control), mind control and/or tracking, and to foster weakness and apathy among the general population in anticipation of the New World Order takeover agenda which will likely include the imposition of martial law (a sickly population is a lot more controllable and compliant than a healthy, vigorous one).
William Thomas
William Thomas was the first reporter to attract national attention to the chemtrails issue. He has been interviewed many times on the Art Bell Radio show to discuss the chemtrails story and has many excellent articles and Photos posted at his own web site as well as other locations including-Jeff Rense's Sightings on the Radio . Thomas has concluded that these sprayings are genocidal in nature and are intended to reduce or weaken the general population. In a November '99 interview with Art Bell, Thomas also voiced the idea that there might be a mind control element to the most recent spraying, since many people are reporting mental confusion and depression following recent sprayings. Thomas has reminded radio listeners that the government has had a long history of exposing the public to biological pathogens without their knowledge or consent.
Thomas has also reported that spraying samples have been analyzed and have revealed that  many deadly and toxic pathogens have been found including Mycoplasma Fermetens Incognitus (the SAME  bioengineered pathogen that  Dr Garth Nicholson  had discovered in about 45% of the veterans who came down with Gulf War Illness). Thomas found that Mycoplasma, however, was only ONE pathogen among a group of highly toxic biohazard substances analyzed from the chemtrail residues.
Why?
The evidence is obvious and plentiful that these sprayings have been taking place almost daily since the Fall of '98 and many people have gotten sick and undoubtedly some have died from the effects of these pathogen/toxin sprayings, but the $64 question is WHY ?
 

Some writers have wistfully speculated that the government is trying to vaccinate us against a coming plague of bio terrorist origin. Most people would like to believe that, but the evidence is too strong in the opposite direction. Of course, sprayings might have different intentions for different sectors of the  population: Possible population reduction for the weak and immune compromised; possible vaccine protection intended for certain ethnic groups; and possible ID tracking. It's hard to say. Only insiders know the real story, or more probably know some parts of the Real Story.

What most Americans don't realize is that the upper echelons of the United States government is no longer a government "of , by, and for " the people (See the New World Order). The United States government-as with all other major governments of the world-is under the total domination and control of the Illuminati (architects of the so-called New World Order). The Illuminati's  plan to reduce the global population by 4 billion people before the year 2050 was laid out in the Global 2000 report assembled by the Carter administration. in the late 70's.

It should be obvious-that in order to REDUCE the world's population from its present size of six billion down to 2 billion (even over a fifty year span) would require that the majority of people now living would have to be exterminated in some way.  The amazing thing about the Illuminati is that they place all their ghastly plans right out in the open for everyone to see, if people would only look and read what they are saying.
Debunkers
A genocidal operation of this size and scope would require the Illuminati controllers to promote contravening propaganda in the opposite direction in order to limit or defuse political agitation, possible retaliatory action, and to quell the concerns of  the average American who might stumble upon the chemtrail story. It's Standard Operating Procedure for the Illuminati. For example, when Senate committee hearings took place a few years ago (early '90's) on re-examining  the Kennedy assassination, just coincidentally an author (and CIA asset) by the name of Gerald Posner, who had recently published a book titled "Case Closed",  suddenly appears on the national scene. In his book,  Posner claimed unequivocally that Oswald was the lone assassin, that there was no conspiracy involving others, and that the Warren Commission was correct in its original findings. Reviews of his opinions and that of his book received front page coverage throughout mainstream mediaFrontline produced a 2 hour "documentary" on Posner's claims which failed to offer opposing views by other Kennedy assassination investigators/authors to refute or take issue with Posner's position. In 1997, on the 50 year anniversary of the Roswell, New Mexico UFO Crash of 1947, the  government offered up a high ranking Air Force officer to make an utter fool of himself on national TV (CNN) by stating that the so called "bodies" of aliens beings-which were recovered from the Roswell crash-were "in fact"  really only test dummies that the Air Force had sent aloft to see how they would fare under crash conditions. This orchestrated and staged press conference had already stated that the dummies were deployed in 1954. When one reporter asked this Air Force officer what the connection was between a 1954 test of crash dummies and the 1947 Roswell UFO crash, the stunned officer could only mumble that apparently "time compression" had "taken place". It was a Golden Moment for those of us who rail against the unending stream of lies and unmitigated deception fostered upon the American public by the (corportate/Illuminati controlled) mainstream media and government spokesmen.
[Update January 2002]
The party line from chemtrail debunkers has changed over the past 3 years. Early on, chemtrail disinformation artists wanted the public to think that chemtrails were really just ordinary contrails that were persisting longer than usual due to changing atmospheric conditions and similar tripe. Later, when the persistent contrail theme had worn too thin, debukers needed to create some sort of logical excuse for chemtrails, so they began to peddle the aerial immunization against 'terrorists' biologicals or solar wind "protection" gambit.
Lately, the current unofficial party line seems to be
1. protection of the ozone layer,
2. secret military radar blanketing technology,
3. aerosol 'vaccinations' of some sort and
4. some vague reference to 'protection from aliens' (??? you got me).
Debunkers will usually offer themselves as experts or authorities on chemtrails and will always give you a 80-90% dose of real info layered in with their hidden propaganda message. Another trait I've noticed from debunkers is the the sheervolume of their presentation coupled with a lot of technical jargon, scientific looking graphs and pictures to bolster the image of  scientific validity and depth of investigation. But if you read their 'reports' carefully enough, you can spot the party line-loud and clear. Lastly, debunkers will always yell "fraud" the loudest for those articles and authors who hit closest to home where truth is concerned. A good place to start honing your discernment skills is with the highly circulated and often referenced "Chemtrails Report". It is a text book example of the current state of the art in disinformaiton.
 Do not assume that you are helpless to do anything
I've photographed chemtrails in my area on many occasions and I've been breathing the fallout from these sprayings right along with everyone else, but I haven't come down with any symptoms or discomfort yet. If you build up (or possess) your immunity to a high enough level, you can resist most any pathogen. There are numerous ways in which people can improve their self defense by learning how to boost immunity.
What to do
Prepare by building up your immune system. A sufficiently strengthened immune system can withstand a far greater biological assault than the designers of these highly virulent "killer microbes" would have the world believe. It's important to remember that ANY lethal biological organism, whether it be a virus, bacteria, fungus, or parasite, has to replicate itself in your body in order to harm you. This includes those weapons grade 'super killer microbes' that Russia, the United States., Israel, Iraq, China, and other countries have developed. The conventional orthodox method to acquire protection against a deadly organism is to administer a vaccine that is specifically tailored with inactivated microbes of the killer bug or fragments of its protein shell. The body produces antibodies against this specific antigen and provides immunity in the event of exposure. Undoubtedly, the designers of these killer bugs and members of the elite who are "inside the loop" have already been vaccinated for their protection. BUT, there are other ways to acquire protection, that the rest of us can utilize.
As stated elsewhere on this site, a sufficiently strengthened immune system can withstand practically any biological assault. I've put together a page called Immunity Boosting which will outline a number of steps you can take to boost your immunity. At the very least, take colloidal silver on a regular basis. Even if you did nothing else to improve your immunity (and you should), colloidal silver will substantially increase your germ fighting capabilities since no bug, even a bioengineered one, can develop a resistance to its germicidal action.
Web sites with in-depth coverage of Chemtrails (posted November 1999)

A PRINCIPLE NEVER TO BE QUESTIONED: ABOLISH THE OLD GOVERNMENT AND ESTABLISH A NEW ONE



"If there be a principle that ought not to be questioned within the United States, it is, that every nation has a right to abolish an old government and establish a new one.  This principle is not only recorded in every public archive, written in every American heart, and sealed with the blood of a host of American martyrs; but is the only lawful tenure by which the United States hold their existence as a nation."

~ James Madison
Helevidius, No. 3
1793

Notice how he refers to "the United States"?  "their existence", not "its existence".  Plural.  Huge difference.  Why would James Madison refer to the United States as "their" and not "its"?

While we are "one nation under God", we are more literally a group of INDIVIDUAL STATES, each with its own Constitution, its own rights, its own laws, and no "federal government' has the right nor power to come in to any one of those states and begin dictating  what the people of that state should do.  THAT is a fact of who we are as a "nation".  We are individual "sibling states" within a larger "family" called "nation".  But in this political world, never ever should the individual be forced to relinquish its rights for the whole "family".  That runs counter to what our foundation and organization is.  Yet that is exactly what 0bama is attempting.  We The People will never allow it.


* Side note:  my husband read this and replied (via email) with: "I am afraid that King Hussein of Washington may read things like this and bend it to his own purposes." 

To which I replied (and wanted to make sure this was understood in this post): "... and THAT is what happens when you take GOD out of the equation. If we have no "central power" (GOD) to point to as our anchor, then morality and "right" become relative to each person's interpretation.  Madison's words were written/spoken under the understanding that a government must be moral and value life, religious freedom, and all those other "inconveniences" listed in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, including the ones not listed (as per the Constitution).  Thereby 0vomit (President Obama) could not say "well I want a new government, a communist one."  Because that is not in agreement with God, the rights God gave us as humans, and the Constitution/Bill of Rights.  But if we take God out of it, then 0vomit could say "who said it's not right?" - and we'd be left with a cork in our mouths if we couldn't point to God, the ultimate "One who said", and reply "He did."

To which my husband replied:  "Well said.  Without an anchor, we drift."

Or, as an anonymous person once stated: "Nature soon takes over if the Gardener is absent."

And if there is one place we do not want (human) nature to take over, it is in the area of politics and government.  And THAT is the entire reason the Founding Fathers came up with and wrote the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights!

WHAT WAS "THE BLACK ROBE REGIMENT"?

I am passionately in love with America and her Providential HIStory.  Very few have existed who could rightly and accurately be called true "American Historians".  One of those is a man named David Barton.  In today's America, there are many powers that seek to destroy his credibility, from fear that he will be the undoing of their corrupt, greedy power plays. They are right in feeling those fears. But when Barton provides all the original sources material (journals, personal writings and letters, Federal Governmental records, etc.) it is, indeed, near impossible to prove him wrong.

I rather not paraphrase what he has already so eloquently presented on his website, Wall Builders, but I do wish to spread the wealth and share this most-important information with the cyber world, so that others can come to know the TRUE HISTORY OF AMERICA, not the revised/rewritten history that all public/government schools have force-fed to the past 3 generations of American citizens.

So please, take off your paradigm glasses, and read this through new eyes and perspective. Learn the truth, so that it may set you free.

 
What is the Black Robe Regiment?

A Brief History by David Barton

The Black Robed Regiment was the name that the British placed on the courageous and patriotic American clergy during the Founding Era (a backhanded reference to the black robes they wore). [1] Significantly, the British blamed the Black Regiment for American Independence, [2] and rightfully so, for modern historians have documented that:
There is not a right asserted in the Declaration of Independence which had not been discussed by the New England clergy before 1763. [3]
It is strange to today's generation to think that the rights listed in the Declaration of Independence were nothing more than a listing of sermon topics that had been preached from the pulpit in the two decades leading up to the American Revolution, but such was the case.

But it was not just the British who saw the American pulpit as largely responsible for American independence and government, our own leaders agreed. For example, John Adams rejoiced that "the pulpits have thundered" [4] and specifically identified several ministers as being among the "characters the most conspicuous, the most ardent, and influential" in the "awakening and a revival of American principles and feelings" that led to American independence. [5]

Across subsequent generations, the great and positive influence of the Revolutionary clergy was faithfully reported. For example:
As a body of men, the clergy were pre-eminent in their attachment to liberty. The pulpits of the land rang with the notes of freedom. [6] The American Quarterly Register [MAGAZINE], 1833
If Christian ministers had not preached and prayed, there might have been no revolution as yet - or had it broken out, it might have been crushed. [7] Bibliotheca Sacra [BRITISH PERIODICAL], 1856
The ministers of the Revolution were, like their Puritan predecessors, bold and fearless in the cause of their country. No class of men contributed more to carry forward the Revolution and to achieve our independence than did the ministers. . . . [B]y their prayers, patriotic sermons, and services [they] rendered the highest assistance to the civil government, the army, and the country. [8] B. F. Morris, HISTORIAN, 1864
The Constitutional Convention and the written Constitution were the children of the pulpit. [9] Alice Baldwin, HISTORIAN, 1918
Had ministers been the only spokesman of the rebellion - had Jefferson, the Adamses, and [James] Otis never appeared in print - the political thought of the Revolution would have followed almost exactly the same line. . . . In the sermons of the patriot ministers . . . we find expressed every possibly refinement of the reigning political faith. [10] Clinton Rossiter, HISTORIAN, 1953
The American clergy were faithful exponents of the fullness of God's Word, applying its principles to every aspect of life, thus shaping America's institutes and culture. They were also at the forefront of proclaiming liberty, resisting tyranny, and opposing any encroachments on God-given rights and freedoms. In 1898, Methodist bishop and church historian Charles Galloway rightly observed of these ministers:
Mighty men they were, of iron nerve and strong hand and unblanched cheek and heart of flame. God needed not reeds shaken by the wind, not men clothed in soft raiment [Matthew 11:7-8], but heroes of hardihood and lofty courage. . . . And such were the sons of the mighty who responded to the Divine call. [11]
But the ministers during the Revolutionary period were not necessarily unique; they were simply continuing what ministers had been doing to shape American government and culture in the century and a half preceding the Revolution.

For example, the early settlers who arrived in Virginia beginning in 1606 included ministers such as the Revs. Robert Hunt, Richard Burke, William Mease, Alexander Whitaker, William Wickham, and others. In 1619 they helped form America's first representative government: the Virginia House of Burgesses, with its members elected from among the people. [12] That legislature met in the Jamestown church and was opened with prayer by the Rev. Mr. Bucke; the elected legislators then sat in the church choir loft to conduct legislative business. [13] As Bishop Galloway later observed:
[T]he first movement toward democracy in America was inaugurated in the house of God and with the blessing of the minister of God. [14]
In 1620, the Pilgrims landed in Massachusetts to establish their colony. Their pastor, John Robinson, charged them to elect civil leaders who would not only seek the "common good" but who would also eliminate special privileges and status between governors and the governed [15] - a radical departure from the practice in the rest of the world at that time. The Pilgrims eagerly took that message to heart, organizing a representative government and holding annual elections. [16] By 1636, they had also enacted a citizens' Bill of Rights - America's first. [17]

In 1630, the Puritans arrived and founded the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and under the leadership of their ministers, they, too, established representative government with annual elections. [18] By 1641, they also had established a Bill of Rights (the "Body of Liberties") [19] - a document of individual rights drafted by the Rev. Nathaniel Ward. [20]

In 1636, the Rev. Roger Williams established the Rhode Island Colony and its representative form of government, [21] explaining that "[t]he sovereign, original, and foundation of civil power lies in the people." [22]

The same year, the Rev. Thomas Hooker (along with the Revs. Samuel Stone, John Davenport, and Theophilus Eaton) founded Connecticut. [23] They not only established an elective form of government [24] but in a 1638 sermon based on Deuteronomy 1:13 and Exodus 18:21, the Rev. Hooker explained the three Biblical principles that had guided the plan of government in Connecticut:

I. [T]he choice of public magistrates belongs unto the people by God's own allowance.
II. The privilege of election . . . belongs to the people . . .
III. They who have power to appoint officers and magistrates [i.e., the people], it is in their power also to set the bounds and limitations of the power and place. [25]

From the Rev. Hooker's teachings and leadership sprang the "Fundamental Orders of Connecticut" - America's first written constitution (and the direct antecedent of the federal Constitution). [26] But while Connecticut produced America's first written constitution, it definitely had not produced America's first written document of governance, for such written documents had been the norm for every colony founded by Bible-minded Christians. After all, this was the Scriptural model: God had given Moses a fixed written law to govern that nation - a pattern that recurred throughout the Scriptures (c.f., Deuteronomy 17:18-20, 31:24, II Chronicles 34:15-21, etc.). As renowned Cornell University professor Clinton Rossiter affirmed:
[T]he Bible gave a healthy spur to the belief in a written constitution. The Mosaic Code, too, was a higher law that men could live by - and appeal to - against the decrees and whims of ordinary men. [27] (emphasis added)
Written documents of governance placed direct limitations on government and gave citizens maximum protection against the whims of selfish leaders. This practice of providing written documents had been the practice of American ministers before the Rev. Hooker's constitution of 1638 and continued long after.

For example, in 1676, New Jersey was chartered and then divided into two religious sub-colonies: Puritan East Jersey and Quaker West Jersey; each had representative government with annual elections. [28] The governing document for West Jersey was written by Christian minister William Penn. It declared:
We lay a foundation for after ages to understand their liberty . . . that they may not be brought in bondage but by their own consent, for we put the power in the people. [29]
Under Penn's document . . .
Legislation was vested in a single assembly elected by all the inhabitants; the elections were to be by secret ballot; the principle of "No taxation without representation" was clearly asserted; freedom of conscience, trial by jury, and immunity from arrest without warrant were guaranteed. [30]
In 1681, Penn wrote the Frame of Government for Pennsylvania. It, too, established annual elections and provided numerous guarantees for citizen rights. [31]


There are many additional examples, but it is indisputable that  ministers played a critical role in instituting and securing many of America's most significant civil rights and freedoms. As Founding Father Noah Webster affirmed:
The learned clergy . . . had great influence in founding the first genuine republican governments ever formed and which, with all the faults and defects of the men and their laws, were the best republican governments on earth. At this moment, the people of this country are indebted chiefly to their institutions for the rights and privileges which are enjoyed. [32]
Daniel Webster (the great "Defender of the Constitution") agreed:
[T]o the free and universal reading of the Bible in that age men were much indebted for right views of civil liberty. [33]
Because Christian ministers established in America freedoms and opportunities not generally available even in the mother country of Great Britain, they were also at the forefront of resisting encroachments on the civil and religious liberties that they had helped secure.

For example, when crown-appointed Governor Edmund Andros tried to seize the charters of Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, revoke their representative governments, and force the establishment of the British Anglican Church upon them, opposition to Andros' plan was led by the Revs. Samuel Willard, Increase Mather, and especially the Rev. John Wise. [34] The Rev. Wise was even imprisoned by Andros for his resistance but he remained an unflinching voice for freedom, penning in 1710 and 1717 two works forcefully asserting that democracy was God's ordained government in both Church and State, [35] thus causing historians to title him "The Founder of American Democracy." [36]

And when Governor Berkley refused to recognize Virginia's self-government, Quaker minister William Edmundson and the Rev. Thomas Harrison led the opposition. [37] When Governor Thomas Hutchinson ignored the elected Massachusetts legislature, the Rev. Dr. Samuel Cooper led the opposition. [38] And a similar pattern was followed when Governor William Burnet dissolved the New Hampshire legislature, Governor Botetourt disbanded the Virginia House of Burgesses, Governor James Wright disbanded the Georgia Assembly, etc.

And because American preachers consistently opposed encroachments on civil and religious liberties, when the British imposed on Americans the 1765 Stamp Act (an early harbinger of the rupture between the two nations soon to follow), at the vanguard of the opposition to that act were the Revs. Andrew Eliot, Charles Chauncey, Samuel Cooper, Jonathan Mayhew, and George Whitefield [39]


(Whitefield even accompanied Benjamin Franklin to Parliament to protest the Act and assert colonial rights). [40] In fact, one of the reasons that American resistance to the Stamp Act became so widespread was because the "clergy fanned the fire of resistance to the Stamp Act into a strong flame." [41]


Five years later in 1770 when the British opened fire on their own citizens in the famous "Boston Massacre," ministers again stepped to the forefront, boldly denouncing that abuse of power. A number of sermons were preached on the subject, including by the Revs. John Lathrop, Charles Chauncey, and Samuel Cooke; [42] the Massachusetts House of Representatives even ordered that Rev. Cooke's sermon be printed and distributed. [43]


As tensions with the British continued to grow, ministers such as the Rev. George Whitefield [44] and the Rev. Timothy Dwight [45] became some of the earliest leaders to advocate America's separation from Great Britain.

There are many additional examples, but the historical records respecting the leadership of the clergy were so clear that in 1851, distinguished historian Benson Lossing concluded:
[T]he Puritan preachers also promulgated the doctrine of civil liberty - that the sovereign was amenable to the tribunal of public opinion and ought to conform in practice to the expressed will of the majority of the people. By degrees their pulpits became the tribunes of the common people; and . . . on all occasions, the Puritan ministers were the bold asserters of that freedom which the American Revolution established. [46] (emphasis added)
However, Christian ministers did not just teach the principles that led to independence, they also participated on the battlefield to secure that independence. One of the numerous examples is the Rev. Jonas Clark.

When Paul Revere set off on his famous ride, it was to the home of the Rev. Clark in Lexington that he rode. Patriot leaders John Hancock and Samuel Adams were lodging (as they often did) with the Rev. Clark. After learning of the approaching British forces, Hancock and Adams turned to Pastor Clark and inquired of him whether the people were ready to fight. Clark unhesitatingly replied, "I have trained them for this very hour!" [47] When the original alarm sounded in Lexington to warn of the oncoming British menace, citizens gathered at the town green, and according to early historian Joel Headley:
There they found their pastor the [Rev. Clark] who had arrived before them. The roll was called and a hundred and fifty answered to their names . . . . The church, the pastor, and his congregation thus standing together in the dim light [awaiting the Redcoats], while the stars looked tranquilly down from the sky above them. [48]
The British did not appear at that first alarm, and the people returned home. At the subsequent alarm, they reassembled, and once the sound of the battle subsided, some eighteen Americans lay on Lexington Green; seven were dead - all from the Rev. Clark's church. [49] Headley therefore concluded, "The teachings of the pulpit of Lexington caused the first blow to be struck for American Independence," [50] and historian James Adams added that "the patriotic preaching of the Reverend Jonas Clark primed those guns." [51]


When the British troops left Lexington, they fought at Concord Bridge and then headed back to Boston, encountering increasing American resistance on their return. Significantly, many who awaited the British along the road were local pastors (such as the Rev. Phillips Payson [52] and the Rev. Benjamin Balch [53]) who had heard of the unprovoked British attack on the Americans, taken up their own arms, and then rallied their congregations to meet the returning British. As word of the attack spread wider, pastors from other areas also responded.

For example, when word reached Vermont, the Rev. David Avery promptly gathered twenty men and marched toward Boston, recruiting additional troops along the way, [54] and the Rev. Stephen Farrar of New Hampshire led 97 of his parishioners to Boston. [55] The ranks of resistance to the British swelled through the efforts of Christian ministers who "were far more effective than army recruiters in rounding up citizen-soldiers." [56]

Weeks later when the Americans fought the British at Bunker Hill, American ministers again delved headlong into the fray. For example, when the Rev. David Grosvenor heard that the battle had commenced, he left from his pulpit - rifle in hand - and promptly marched to the scene of action, [57] as did the Rev. Jonathan French. [58]

This pattern was common through the Revolution - as when the Rev. Thomas Reed marched to the defense of Philadelphia against British General Howe; [59] the Rev. John Steele led American forces in attacking the British; [60] the Rev. Isaac Lewis helped lead the resistance to the British landing at Norwalk, Connecticut; [61] the Rev. Joseph Willard raised two full companies and then marched with them to battle; [62] the Rev. James Latta, when many of his parishioners were drafted, joined with them as a common soldier; [63] and the Rev. William Graham joined the military as a rifleman in order to encourage others in his parish to do the same [64]. Furthermore:
Of Rev. John Craighead it is said that "he fought and preached alternately." Rev. Dr. Cooper was captain of a military company. Rev. John Blair Smith, president of Hampden-Sidney College, was captain of a company that rallied to support the retreating Americans after the battle of Cowpens. Rev. James Hall commanded a company that armed against Cornwallis. Rev. William Graham rallied his own neighbors to dispute the passage of Rockfish Gap with Tarleton and his British dragoons. [65]
There are many additional examples. No wonder the British dubbed the patriotic American clergy the "Black Regiment." [66] But because of their strong leadership, ministers were often targeted by the British. As Headley confirms:
[T]here was a class of clergymen and chaplains in the Revolution whom the British, when they once laid hands on them, treated with the most barbarous severity. Dreading them for the influence they wielded and hating them for the obstinacy, courage, and enthusiasm they infused into the rebels, they violated all the usages of war among civilized nations in order to inflict punishment upon them. [67]
Among these was the Rev. Naphtali Daggett, President of Yale. When the British approached New Haven to enter private homes and desecrate property and belongings, Daggett offered stiff and at times almost single-handed resistance to the British invasion, standing alone on a hillside, repeatedly firing his rifle down at the hundreds of British troops below. Eventually captured, over a period of several hours the British stabbed and pricked Daggett multiple times with their bayonets. Local townspeople lobbied the British and eventually secured the release of the preacher, but Daggett never recovered from those wounds, which eventually caused his death. [68] When the Rev. James Caldwell offered similar resistance in New Jersey, the British burned his church and he and his family were murdered. [69]

The British abused, killed, or imprisoned many other clergymen, [70] who often suffered harsher treatment and more severe penalties than did ordinary imprisoned soldiers. [71] But the British targeted not just ministers but also their churches. As a result, of the nineteen church buildings in New York City, ten were destroyed by the British, [72] and most of the churches in Virginia suffered the same fate. [73] This pattern was repeated throughout many other parts of the country.

Truly, Christian ministers provided courageous leadership throughout the Revolution, and as briefly noted earlier, they had also been largely responsible for laying its intellectual foundation. To understand more of their influence, consider the Rev. John Wise.

As early as 1687, the Rev. Wise was already teaching that "taxation without representation is tyranny," [74] the "consent of the governed" was the foundation of government, [75] and that "every man must be acknowledged equal to every man." [76] In 1772 with the Revolution on the horizon, two of Wise's works were reprinted by leading patriots and the Sons of Liberty to refresh America's understanding of the core Biblical principles of government. [77] (The first printing sold so fast that a quick second reprint was quickly issued. [78]) Significantly, many of the specific points made by Wise in that work subsequently appeared four years later in the very language of the Declaration of Independence. As historian Benjamin Morris affirmed in 1864:
[S]ome of the most glittering sentences in the immortal Declaration of Independence are almost literal quotations from this [1772 reprinted] essay of John Wise. . . . It was used as a political text-book in the great struggle for freedom. [79]
And decades later when President Calvin Coolidge delivered a 1926 speech in Philadelphia on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, he similarly acknowledged:
The thoughts [in the Declaration] can very largely be traced back to what John Wise was writing in 1710. [80]
It was Christian ministers such as John Wise (and scores like him) who, through their writings and countless sermons (such as their Election Sermons and other sermons on the Biblical principles of government) laid the intellectual basis for American Independence.
Christian clergy largely defined America's unique political theory and even defended it in military combat, but they were also leaders in the national legislative councils in order to help implement what they had conceived and birthed. For example, the Rev. Dr. John Witherspoon was a member of the Continental Congress who served during the Revolution on the Board of War as well as on over 100 congressional committees. [81] Other ministers who served in the Continental Congress included the Revs. Joseph Montgomery, Hugh Williamson, John Zubly, and more.

Numerous ministers also served in state legislatures - such as the Rev. Jacob Green of New Jersey, who helped set aside the British government in that state and was made chairman of the committee that drafted the state's original constitution in 1776; [82] the Rev. Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, who helped draft Pennsylvania's 1776 constitution; [83] the Rev. Samuel Stillman, who helped draft Massachusetts' 1780 constitution; [84] etc.

When hostilities ceased at the end of the Revolution, Christian ministers led in the movement for a federal constitution. For example, the Revs. Jeremy Belknap, Samuel Stanhope Smith, John Witherspoon, and James Manning began pointing out the defects of the Articles of Confederation, [85] and when the Constitution was finally complete and submitted to the states for ratification, nearly four dozen clergymen were elected as ratifying delegates, [86] many of whom played key roles in securing its adoption in their respective states.

Following the adoption of the new federal Constitution, ministers were highly active in celebrating its ratification. For example, of the parade in Philadelphia, signer of the Declaration Benjamin Rush happily reported:
The clergy formed a very agreeable part of the procession. They manifested by their attendance their sense of the connection between religion and good government. They. . . . marched arm in arm with each other to exemplify the Union. [87]
When the first federal Congress under the new Constitution convened, several ministers were Members, including the Revs. Frederick Augustus and John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg, Abiel Foster, Benjamin Contee, Abraham Baldwin, and Paine Wingate.

Ministers were intimately involved in every aspect of introducing, defining, and securing America's civil and religious liberties. A 1789 Washington, D. C., newspaper therefore proudly reported:
[O]ur truly patriotic clergy boldly and zealously stepped forth and bravely stood our distinguished sentinels to watch and warn us against approaching danger; they wisely saw that our religious and civil liberties were inseparably connected and therefore warmly excited and animated the people resolutely to oppose and repel every hostile invader. . . . [M]ay the virtue, zeal and patriotism of our clergy be ever particularly remembered. [88]
Incidentally, besides their contributions to government and civil and religious liberty, the Black Robed Regiment was also largely responsible for education in America. Ministers, understanding that only a literate people well versed in the teachings of the Bible could sustain free and enlightened government, therefore established an education system that would teach and preserve the religious principles so indispensable to the civil and religious liberties they forcefully advocated.

Consequently, in 1635 the Puritans established America's first public school, [89] and in 1647 passed America' first public education law ("The Old Deluder Satan Act" [90]). And Harvard University was founded through the direction of Puritan minister John Harvard; [91] Yale was founded by ten congregational ministers; [92] Princeton by Presbyterian ministers Jonathan Dickinson, John Pierson, and Ebenezer Pemberton; [93] William and Mary by Episcopal minister James Blair; [94] Dartmouth by Congregational minister Eleazar Wheelock; [95] etc.

This trend of Gospel ministers founding and leading American educational institutions continued for the next two-and-a-half centuries, and by 1860, ninety-one percent of all college presidents were ministers of the Gospel - as were more than a third of all university faculty members. [96] Of the 246 colleges founded by the close of that year, only seventeen were not affiliated with some denomination; [97] and by 1884, eighty-three percent of America's 370 colleges still remained denominational colleges. [98] As Founding Father Noah Webster (the "Schoolmaster to America") affirmed, "to them [the clergy] is popular education in this country more indebted than to any other class of men." [99]

In short, history demonstrates that America's elective governments, her educational system, and many other positive aspects of American life and culture were the product of Biblical-thinking Christian clergy and leaders. Today, however, as the influence of the clergy has waned, many of these institutions have come under unprecedented attack and many of our traditional freedoms have been significantly eroded. It is time for America's clergy to understand and reclaim the important position of influence they have been given. As the Rev. Charles Finney - a leader of the Second Great Awakening - reminded ministers in his day:
Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits. If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree. If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation. [100]
America once again needs the type of courageous ministers described by Bishop Galloway:
Mighty men they were, of iron nerve and strong hand and unblanched cheek and heart of flame. God needed not reeds shaken by the wind, not men clothed in soft raiment [Matthew 11:7-8], but heroes of hardihood and lofty courage. . . .And such were the sons of the mighty who responded to the Divine call. [101]
It is time to reinvigorate the Black Robed Regiment!
