First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Hi all;

been thinking about this a bit. Lets work our way thru the 1st.

CONGRESS – not the states , not the people, not the judiciary, not the President

SHALL MAKE NO LAW -shall have no bill legislature or rulings



This is NOT the founders wanting separation of church and state, It is the fact that they wanted no national religion as they had in England with the church running everything. This is saying if you want to pray to god, you are free to do so in whatever manner you want. This is NOT saying you are not allowed to pray in the White House or the rotunda. THE only thing it says is that CONGRESS is not allowed to make a law. If the states want to include god in their life, they are free to. (anything not expressively prohibited in the constitution is left to the states and the people).

Since the only prohibition on this is to CONGRESS, that would leave it to the several states and most importantly THE PEOPLE.


The founders most definitely wanted us to be able to tell what we think to whomever would listen, with out being told what NOT to say (have at it, you PC crowd).


They wanted the press to be able to write about the government with out fear. It did NOT qualify whom was to be deemed “the press”. My little blog here is an example of the new “press”. Have we become such lame brains that we cannot tell what is fake and what is real? knowing that the press will try to assuage us in one direction or another? That read and verify is no longer a thing? This new push for getting rid of “fake newsites” is in direct opposition to this amendment. What are they going to do next , pull the “National Enquirer” off the store shelves now? Does this not speak of government control of information? The way communist and totalitarian governments work?


The emphasis on peaceably is mine. RIOTS do not count. Do you remember where the term “get off your soapbox” came from? It’s because people used to stand on soap boxes to be recognized when they wanted to speak in public.

These are just some of my thoughts on this.  May post more later as I think about it.


DNC Hacking

Another thought. With all the emphasis on WHO hacked the #DNC, Everyone is distracted from WHAT was released. The fact that there was something to release is what is being covered up in what maybe a campaign to keep those that wrote it from jail? Yes some people MAY have changed their minds on who to vote for based on the released emails. But for the majority of those that voted for Mr Trump it was no factor.

Remember this, IF it wasn’t written in the first place there would have been nothing to release.

Shall we turn this back around and put the focus back on WHAT was released, rather than WHO hacked them?

Did the Russians hack the dnc, was it the Obama regieme, was it an insider leak as Mr Assange says, or was it someone else? Right now I am not convinced one way or the other. Remember that the CIA is most known for topeling governments and releasing fake data.

Gotta love the drama of politics.

Could this be a last ditch attempt By MS Clinton to stay out of jail by diverting attention from what she wrote and did to some unnamed source that the wapo said they had in their article that started this round? I don’t know. (the wapo? really? does anyone actually believe that rag more than say the national enquirer?)

oh well. It’s almost time to start my day and I have no time to continue and I’m sure you don’t have much time to read further as you have to start your day.


First Lesson for the 3rd Sunday in Advent

From Isaiah, the first lesson for the 3rd Sunday in Advent

1In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.

2Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter 3Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

4Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:

5For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust.

6The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
7The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.
8Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee.
9With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
10Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord.
11 Lord, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.

“Fake News”

As I sit here, I am seeing calls by a disgruntled Ms. Clinton for the government to end fake news sites. Now I realize her and most of the left are besides themselves trying to figure out a way to blame someone or something for her loss, But Ms. Clinton this just goes to prove to me and a lot of others why it was a good thing you lost. As someone that has taken the oath, I must point out that you would be going against the US Constitution.

Let me show you how. In your call for getting rid of “fake” new sites you are now going against the First Amendment of the US Constitution. You see the framers thought something like this would be called for, and made it protected. Back in the day they were censored a lot in what they wrote in public by the crown. So they wrote in these protections for the American people. These protections being freedom of speech and freedom of the press and freedom of religion among others.

The 1st amendment-
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances

So there you have the primary rule to follow. By your call to close “fake” news sites you are calling for government censorship. these sites are protected under freedom of the press. And even if you wont say they are part of the press, then they are covered under freedom of speech. Yes you may not like what they say, they may not be telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but they are still protected. If you are to start shutting down sites for what you call fake news, what is to stop you from shutting down any persons free speech. there by creating a nation of state sponsored news only?

As an average citizen I am smart enough to know to verify what I read and discount all the BS. If by your call you are saying that Americans are not smart enough to know fake news from real, then you should look further. There are plenty of us that know not to believe everything we read. If not then people need to be taught that lesson.

As I said, I took an oath, and with that oath comes rights and responsibilities. One of those is to guard those that I disagree with vehemently, their right to say that which I in all good conscience would disagree with as much temper. But I do have the right, nay the responsibility and duty to point out to you that which I find wrong and why. If after I have said my peace and you still disagree then all is good.

I would like to close out by asking that EVERYONE read the constitution. And that everyone please engage their brain and think about things. Then decide what it is that you believe to be fake and true. As always verify then believe.

Someone once said – say something often enough and with such force and they will believe that which is a lie to be true.

daily verse 2nd Wednesday after Advent

Revelation 13King James Version (KJV)

13 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

daily verse Monday 2nd sunday after advent

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
8 The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.
9 And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,
10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.
11 Therefore the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;
12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
13 For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.
14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

A Question


I have A question.

For all you lawyers and constitutionalists. I recently saw on the news how Congress passed a bill that said, if your don’t follow our rules you don’t get any money, and if you continue to not follow them then you owe us back the money we gave you. I understand that this is the best way they can force states to follow Federal laws, And was designed to make the states and towns follow Federal immigration law.

My question is, can the states fight this law on only certain points? Here is my main point, that the constitution gives certain powers to the federal government, and the rest is reserved to the states and the people. EX: the constitution has freedom of speech, guns, religion, immigration in it, BUT it does not have anything about medicines and drugs.

So the question is, can the federal government control say, Pot, when the state makes a law for or against it? Or say roads and or cars? Or say marriage. All these things are not in the constitution or bill of rights. Doesn’t the fact that the constitution actually says that anything NOT in the constitution is for the states and the people? Your thoughts.

daily verse from the bible

Genesis 4:6-7 (NIV) – Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”
