John Adams Founding Father

Filed under: Culture

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.

JOHN ADAMS, letter to Jonathan Jackson, Oct. 2, 1789

It is a shame that we are working so hard to destroy our history, this statement by John Adams is something that should be known by every one in our nation. We are looking today at that which Adams dreaded in 1789. We do have 2 main political parties and they are diametrically opposed to each other. Of course the truth is that the Republican Party claims to stand for limited government and lower taxes and other so-called conservative principals, while the Democratic Party appears to be sliding into the morass of communism. Of course they claim it is progressive, but socialism has never been a progressive movement, look at Cuba, Venezuela and other countries who have tried this experiment, better yet look at North Korea to see what happens when socialism/communism becomes the way of life.

I like to refer to the Republicans as Republicrats, simply because they are also big government, big spending liberals just as are the Demopublicrats. The big spending on each side is the welfare that is paid out to their constituents. For the Dems it is welfare, food stamps, and other types of social programs. For the Repub it is more money on subsidies to big business, big pharma, the military / Industrial complex and wall street. Both of them want to keep bloated bureaucracy alive and well, so they can tax and spend to their hearts content.

I am still wondering where in the Constitution of the United States it says that the Federal Government can tell me how to educate my children, where is the line that says they can control which Doctor I see or what kind of insurance policy I can buy? Why is it that my tax dollars go to inflated salaries of Congress persons and Senators who every couple of years get to tell me that they are raising their own pay, and then of course the perks that go with their royal position. Since when do the employees get to tell the employers how much pay they get?

The Constitution tells us what they can and cannot do, but they ignore the Constitution all the while they swear to uphold and defend that founding document. The Democrat minority leader in the Senate says that he is a scholar of the Constitution, yet he is perfectly willing to ignore the checks and balances of that document except when they will give him the upper hand. He is all bent out of shape because there is now no longer any way to use the filibuster against the opposition candidate for a seat on the Supreme Court of the US, yet he never said a word when Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear” option when it was to his advantage to do so.

There is one other quote that I find interesting: Chris Matthews MSNBC, you know the guy whose legs got all fuzzy when he got to hearing Barack Obama. He said this: “Idiots voted for third and fourth party candidates, and they don’t know how this system works. You have two choices.” This is patently ridiculous. If enough of us get our heads on right and realize that the two main parties, Republicrats and Demopublicrats are really not the only choices we have, and if we keep voting for these people who are only interested in lining their own pockets, passing laws that are in many ways unconstitutional, and telling us what we have to pay them rather than we telling them what we want them to do and expecting them to do it for the amount we are willing to pay them, then we deserve the chaos we now have.

There is one party out here in the land where it is still acceptable to love America, the land between the east coast and west coast, and that is the Constitution Party. If you actually care a whit about where our nation is headed and want to really make a difference then you need to take a look at what this party stands for. The national website is: http://www.constitutionparty.com/ and in Texas our website is: http://cptexas.us/home/ we need you to join with us and help us to work to put our nation back on the right track. Check out the Party Platforms and see what we stand for and then if you agree with us, fill out the membership form and sign up and get to work so we can replace the socialists and get this country to become again the Constitutional Republic it was formed to be.

I am presently the Chair for the Rio Grande (Del Rio) Area of the Constitution Party of Texas. If you want to talk with me send me a note at jquigley2@cpkinneytx.com I will be glad to give you any information you may need.

If you want to comment, please do, I welcome all comments.

Jud 1:3-16 ESV Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. (4) For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ. (5) Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. (6) And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day– (7) just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. (8) Yet in like manner these people also, relying on their dreams, defile the flesh, reject authority, and blaspheme the glorious ones. (9) But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.” (10) But these people blaspheme all that they do not understand, and they are destroyed by all that they, like unreasoning animals, understand instinctively. (11) Woe to them! For they walked in the way of Cain and abandoned themselves for the sake of gain to Balaam’s error and perished in Korah’s rebellion. (12) These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, shepherds feeding themselves; water-less clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted; (13) wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever. (14) It was also about these that Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his holy ones, (15) to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness that they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” (16) These are grumblers, malcontents, following their own sinful desires; they are loud-mouthed boasters, showing favoritism to gain advantage.

We talk a lot today about false teaching and how the Church has strayed so far from the truth of the gospel. Yet as the letter of Jude shows us this began very early in the Church, we find that there was such a problem that instead of talking about that which was the way, Jude felt the Spirit leading in a different direction. The direction that the Spirit wants him to take is to show the necessity to contend for the faith “once for all delivered to the saints.”
What is the truth he is speaking of? It is that which we find enshrined in our Old and New Testament books. We have all the doctrine that God has for us to know, and to follow, if someone says he or she has received a new revelation from God, they are lying, there is no new revelation from God. Jude will go on to explain what he means, in that the truth was delivered to us through Jesus Christ, and the Apostles who established the church throughout the world of that day. There are many who take what the scriptures say and twist it to fit the way of the world, instead of the Kingdom of God.
The Bible tells us that the Devil is the Liar in Chief, he is the leading deceit deliverer to the world. The devil knows the scriptures and knows how to twist them to his own benefit. Where we see that the gospel delivers us to freedom from sin, false teachers will use it to say that we are free indeed to practice any thing we want. We are free from sin so we can sin all the more. That teaching was prevalent then and it is so today, God’s people need to stand against this deceit.
Jude 1:4 tells us that those who tell these lies will have to pay the price for their lies and sinfulness in lying to people. The gospel makes it clear, Jesus chastised the Scribes and Pharisees for being false teachers, and the scripture tells us that those who are leaders in the church that are also deceivers will pay the price as well. There is only one Lord and God, Jesus the Christ is the one who saves and sets free, free to live as God intended us to live. It is our duty to stand for the truth, no matter who we must stand against. If what a teacher, preacher or other leader in the church tells you something that disagrees with the scriptures, stand against that teaching.
I went to a conference of the United Methodist Church one year, the discipline of the United Methodist Church states clearly that they are to abstain from alcohol because of its negative impact on morality.
As we were enjoying our lunch in a restaurant in Corpus Christi, I noted that at a table near Yvonne and I were a couple of the leaders of the Church, also eating lunch, they had a bottle of wine on the table and were enjoying their lunch and their drinks. Hypocrisy of course since they knew what the teaching was, and it was also taught in the scriptures. As the apostle Paul wrote in Eph 5:18 “And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,”. We are to be filled with the Holy Spirit and not with alcohol.
The point being we are to be like our Lord as much as we can, yes, Jesus drank wine, however, he did so in moderation. He expects us to act accordingly, staying sober, but filled with the Holy Spirit and working to keep ourselves in holiness as much as we can as sinful human beings.

In verse 5 Jude talks about those who rebelled against Moses and God in the wilderness after their escape from Egypt. In the book of Numbers 13 and 14 God acts against those who are rebelling and they are destroyed from the face of the earth. Those who pervert the word of God who rebel against God are slated to spend eternity in hell, those who strive to live in the way of God will instead reach the holy land, Heaven where they will live in the presence of God for eternity. Those who have confessed Jesus Christ as Lord, are destined to live in Heaven, those who reject Jesus Christ, will also live forever, in hell. Jude goes on to show what happened to all who flouted the way of life that God had set down from the beginning. Sodom and Gomorrah, and many others all who have or will pay the price for their rebellion against God. Beginning in verse 6 and going through verse 16 we see the litany of those who will suffer eternal damnation. It hurts me to see this nation of ours going the way of all of Europe, chasing after the lie that there are alternative ways of life when God has clearly said there is only one right way to live. Again the Apostle Paul wrote that “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” He also says that “the wages of sin is death.” All sin earns the same wage, whether it is telling a lie, or, cursing God, adultery or another sexual sin. Disrespecting your parents, or, perjuring yourself. Hell awaits those who blaspheme God, those who refuse to accept their need for a savior, God will not be mocked, he is in control.

Jud 1:17-23 ESV But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. (18) They said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” (19) It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. (20) But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, (21) keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. (22) And have mercy on those who doubt; (23) save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.

Jude now goes on telling us we must remember that there will be those who scoff at the gospel, working to serve the flesh instead of the maker of the flesh we live in. There are people who work hard to divide us, one against another, closing down any faithful group of people by finding and exploiting any weakness in our church. Remember that Satan is the great deceiver, and will work to exploit any weakness in our faith walk. Do not just listen to the Sunday message, read the verses for yourself, is the message true to the gospel or is it false? Study the word of God every day, even if just a short passage, just keep up diligent study to be sure you are able to answer the scoffer with the truth.
The question you must ask yourself is, “Who am I?” Am I truly the child of the King or am I a child of the devil. Do I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, that He died and was raised from the dead to bring me salvation for sin? Or do I believe the scoffers who say there is no God and this is the only life there is. Which one do you believe? If it is the scoffer, then you are destined to an eternity in Hell with Satan and all his minions. If you have believed that you are a child of the King, have confessed with your tongue that Jesus Christ is indeed the Savior and Lord, then Heaven awaits.
Jud 1:24-25 ESV Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, (25) to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
Jude closes with a Doxology, a short piece that tells us exactly who Jesus Christ is and what happens to those who believe.
We find that Jesus is the only one who can keep us from stumbling, the only one who can present us blameless in heaven by the power of his blood spilled on the cross at Calvary by which we are saved for all eternity from sin and death. Then Jude goes on to show us that it is Jesus Christ, who is the only God and our Savior. God himself came and lived as a Jewish lad, lived a sinless life, and then gave his life an atonement for my sin and your sin. We are set free when we recognize that we are sinners and that Jesus died on that cross, to allow us to be reconciled to our Holy God. Also by his resurrection, we too are guaranteed resurrection one day to be with him in heaven.
Lift your voices in praise for the Lord Jesus Christ is the one who saves, and we are the ones in need of salvation.

Texas House – NOT Conservative
April 14, 2017, 12:31 pm
Filed under: Politics | Tags: ,

Living in Texas is becoming a crazy adventure. The Texas Senate has passed a number of bills to reform the Ethics laws especially for those serving in Government, End Sanctuary Cities, Constitutional Convention of States, and Child Protective Services reform. These are all priorities our Governor stated in his State of the State address.

When the Senate and House began this session, I was sure the Senate would pass these bills. I was just as sure that the House would kill them if they possibly could do so. Well I received my copy of the Texas Scorecard and sure enough the House Speaker (RINO) Joe Strauss has held these bills not even sending them to committee for review and hearings. The only one of these items to move forward, albeit a House version, not the Senate version is Child Protective Services reform. What we have here is a House Speaker, who works hand in glove with the Democrats to kill anything that has a stamp of approval on it from conservatives. We can thank the City of San Antonio for Liberal Democrats and for RINO Joe Strauss.

Just to be sure I keep this non-partisan, I also wish to thank the gutless House Republican Caucus for keeping Strauss in the Speakers Chair. They did not even mount any kind of movement to replace him, so both Democrats and Republicans are in cahoots to make sure that conservatives cannot pass anything resembling fairness for the citizens of Texas. The House leadership even went so far as to physically attack a member who disagreed with a movement to suspend the rules to vote on a bill that had not been given a fair hearing. They wanted to kill School Choice in Texas!

Our Texas Attorney General has been under attack by the Liberals/Democrats since the election that brought him to the AG’s office. They have even gone so far as to sic the SEC on him with false charges of security fraud. He has been acquitted twice on that charge and the Federal District in North Texas has found him not guilty for the second time, basically saying that the SEC could not prove any wrongdoing by Attorney General Paxton. Of course there is another case pending in criminal court, using the same evidence that has been thrown out twice by the Federal Court. It has two special prosecutors one of whom has been the lawyer for the Bandido Motorcycle Gang, and has already been declared an unindicted co-conspirator in a case where he was the general counsel for the leadership (Bandido leadership).

Of course it would not be a complete rant if I did not mention that voter fraud is alive and well in the State of Texas. In one election in Hays County, an entire Ballot Box went missing, and in another part of the election there was a precinct with 420 registered voters, yet the actual vote tally showed 718 voters cast ballots. 170.95% voter turnout, that is amazing, considering that most elections are lucky to have 40% turnout.

If you live in Texas and are concerned about our politicians and our elections, as well as the attempts to steal money from our Rainy Day Fund so these politicians can spend more than they receive in taxes, you need to get the Texas Scorecard.

Republicans unable to do right!

As I watched the unfolding of the drama this week in the House of Representatives, I saw a scene that made me ill. I watched as the Republicans in the House folded their losing hand and instead of working to fix it, they gave up. Of course I was sure that this group of do nothing congresspersons, led by the coward Ryan, would do what they did instead of standing up as real representatives of those who elected them to office.

It really appears that all their words are lies, they really did not want to end the prison that Obama and the Democrats have placed the American people in, they just want to be sure they can keep the power they have. Let us tell them that they have NO POWER, because we can elect people to office who will actually act on our behalf. We know it is not the Demopublicans neither of these parties will stand for us, they will stand only for their own power.

I wonder how many people in this country notice that all of these people who are politicians are getting rich off of our backs, they raise their own pay every couple of years, they live in mansions in D. C. and send their kids to private schools, but will not allow us to have the choice to do as they do. Yet we keep voting in the same people to office, and we keep getting the same results no matter which party is in charge.

I was not a supporter of Donald Trump, but I have to admit, I do see in him someone who will at least work for you and I, while the career politicians will work only to fatten their own wallets at our expense. I see the same stuff in my State, Texas has a very strong Republican presence in the State Capital, yet the Senate passes bills that call for real reform in Ethics, including calling on the politicians to be held to higher standards. The House which is solidly Republican, will not pass any bills that Republican Conservatives want to have passed. You see the Speaker of the House says he is Republican and campaigns as a conservative in San Antonio raking in tons of money to insure his winning back his seat, and staying as Speaker. The problem is this man is a RINO a Republican in name only. He actually appoints Democrats to committee chairs, bills that come from the Senate that call for reform, die in committee or get watered down with amendments which actually change the bill to something different than when it came from the Senate.

The bill of course is killed in the senate when it is sent back for agreement with what the Democrats and liberal Republicans in the house made it over to be.

So, we have a government that is controlled by Republicans but they cannot do the right things because they are RINO’s. Whether it is Texas or Washington D. C. it is the same problem. It is time for a third party, one that will adhere to the Constitution of the United States. It is time to repeal all the garbage that is costing our nation its freedom, it is time to rein in the “intelligence” community, because they are no longer interested in trying to protect our nation, they only want to protect their own little fiefdoms, so they spy on their own citizens.

What Is This Hatred doing to Political Discourse?
March 16, 2017, 9:09 pm

I find myself in a quandary these days as I see people acting as if the world is coming to an end, and it is all because Donald Trump is now the President and he wants to destroy America. I hear a great deal about our “democracy” and how he is taking away our freedoms, and wants to deport millions of Mexicans who are here as immigrants. They forget the word illegal when they refer to these poor immigrants. Then a professor wants to allow a discussion to be held in his university and instead a horrible riot erupts, people do not want to allow this person to speak. Why? Because he has different views than they do and so his right to speech is offensive and he cannot therefore be allowed to voice his views.

Women wandering around in a big crowd, with signs saying they are against this, that, and the other thing, and wearing hats that are supposed to be a female sexual organ, what kind of people are these, and then one of them decides she will confess that she wants to blow up the white house. Where is the secret service? Why is this woman walking free? She wants to kill the president and any body else who happens to be in the White House at the time. Oh and we cannot forget Snoop Dog, who has a video out showing him shooting a clown made up like President Trump, where is the Secret Service on that one?

The Democrats promised that they would do everything they can to stop President Trump, and they have some lackey judges who are willing to join them in this, so they block a LEGAL  order from the President of the United States to work to protect our nation. A limited time ban on people who do not have legal status to travel to our country while they put in place a better system for vetting those who are coming from these countries. It was OK when President Obama declared these countries as not able to come into our nation because of the same reason that President Trump had for his executive order.

The President stands up and addresses the Legislative branch of Government in a joint session, and the opposition won’t even stand to honor a widow, instead the widow is castigated by democrats and made to look like she was being used. The Democrats are no longer the loyal opposition, they are just the enemy of anything like civil discourse. As for Hollywood, they are the haters of the year, I did not watch any of their self-congratulation shows since I knew it was going to be a bash the President at every opportunity. I was of course correct in my assumption.

Perhaps, I have gotten too old (72), I remember civil discourse in the house of government, even when there was disagreement, it was still civil. Now, it is a war, and it is one that says take no prisoners, destroy everything that the other wants to do and if needed destroy the nation just so we win! Well, if they keep it up, none of us win, we all lose because there will be no government, no country, we will be a third-rate power after the destruction of our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, and even our Morality, which is already in tatters.

I don’t like the country that I see, I find it to be a dirty, dismal place, full of hatred and discord, and violence and I see no future for us if this continues. Listening to rhetoric from the fascist democrats I believe it will continue until there is no country left, they will destroy the nation trying to destroy the Presidency, because of their blind hatred of the man who holds the office.

I pray for our nation, but I am afraid that God has begun to withdraw his hand from America, his protection is no longer on us. Don’t sing God bless America, pray rather that God will forgive our iniquity, will forgive our hatred, our immorality, our telling God we don’t want him in our midst. Jesus Christ died to set us free from sin and here we are rejecting his teaching, so we can get drunk, have sex, abort babies, marry our same-sex partners, and all in the name of Secularism/Fascism. Forcing those who disagree with the hell we are making on earth, to pay fines and to close up their businesses because they still believe in the God of the universe.

If this is the world you want, I am glad that I belong to Jesus Christ, and this is not my home!

How do we treat the stranger?
February 12, 2017, 3:10 pm
Filed under: Culture, God | Tags: , ,

I ask that question, because it does matter how we treat those who come to our country. If they come as a legal immigrant, have we checked to see that they really want to become a part of the citizenry? Have we ascertained what they believe about our nation, and what they are coming here for? I do believe we have the right to insure that people who come to live in our nation should be checked out, vetted if you will, because to be truthful there have been quite a few people who came to our country with our death in their minds, and that is not a good thing for us.

I grew up in New York City, Staten Island to be precise,  in a neighborhood that had a lot of kids my age, we played games, from hide and seek, to football, baseball and other games. Cowboys and Indians, Cops and Robbers, Soldiers and other things. We did not think about who was what nationality, we did not worry about differences, we worried about who would win the games we played. We shared food and drink, we would go to each others homes when someone was BBQing and enjoyed being together.

In the reality of our time 1950’s and 60’s, we did not worry about anything except what was the next game we would play, and who was on who’s side. Then along came the late 60’s and we found ourselves watching people setting fire to their own neighborhoods, and none of us, black, white or yellow, could honestly understand why? It never has made sense to me why people will burn down homes, stores and whatever else might be handy.

My mother worked at the World Trade Center, she passed away in 1974, so she was not there when 2001 happened. That too made no sense, why did those people hate us so much that they had to kill and destroy? Fast forward to today, why do these people hate us so much they have to destroy and kill, maim and just plain hurt those others?

Let me go to the Holy Bible, since I am a retired Pastor, because I think it is important that we treat others properly. Here is what God says about the stranger living in our land. Granted, in this particular passage he is talking about the Jewish people: Num_15:15 For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you, a statute forever throughout your generations. You and the sojourner shall be alike before the LORD. (ESV) Also here is another passage, Num 15:16 ESV One law and one rule shall be for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.” Notice that there is to be one law and one rule for all who live in the land. In other words, if someone wants to come and live among us, they must be willing to live as we do, not separate, together under the same rule of law as we live under.

So how do we treat the stranger among us today? Mat 25:35-40 ESV For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, (36) I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ (37) Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? (38) And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? (39) And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ (40) And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ If we are to be true, moral people, then we treat those who come among us as we would want to be treated. Jesus told the story of the Samaritan who came upon a Jewish man lying almost dead in the road, he bound up his wounds took him to the nearest inn and paid the innkeeper to care for the man. Others had passed by and left the man for dead, but not the man of Samaria. He did what was right and proper. At the same time what if that man wanted to live under his own law, instead of the law of the land?

Again according to the scriptures, anyone who wants to come and live in your land, must live under the same law as you live. Therefore if the stranger comes and wants to live in your land, he or she must agree to live under the same laws as you do. What we see is that people coming into our country, want to change our country to what they were used to in their old country. This is not how it works, therefore, when the stranger comes to our land, we must ascertain whether or not they will live under our way of life or not. If the person does not want to live as we do, then they will not be welcome in our land.

Going back to living in New York City, when I worked on Wall Street, I could eat lunch every day in a different type of place. Italian, Chinese, Polish, Caribbean or American. The folks who ran those restaurants, were citizens, and lived as all of us live, and they too would go to different places themselves, because we all enjoyed the differences, but still were all Americans.

We speak of being a nation of immigrants, and that is true to an extent, however, we are also a nation of people who have a shared history, and we should be sharing that history with all who come to our country to live so that they can assimilate into society. We have forgotten that our ancestors had to assimilate into the society and they did so. We cannot last as a nation if we do not assimilate these newer folks into our society, instead, we will continue to see the hatred blossom until we find ourselves in the midst of a civil war, which will dwarf the one in the 1860s, too many have already been killed, we need to get ourselves back into the beauty of our history, the beauty of our nation. It is always working to get better, but lately we are reverting to hate and forgetting where our nation was, and now is going. Let us not lose our history to the idea that we must get rid of that which is not what we want to hear or see.

All these cries for safe spaces, and clean talk, are really destroying who we are. We have always cherished the fact that we can have conversation with others who are different and always still get along. However, today it seems that those who want to hear only their own voices will do anything to silence those who have different ideas. Whether it is Global Warming, or politics or whatever it might be. Believe me we are actually hurting ourselves, terribly by not allowing ourselves to hear dissenting opinions, it may just be that we find that those who differ also have some good ideas.

How do we treat the stranger? With respect, and honor, not with automatic hatred.

Tell me what you think, leave a comment, that we might have a conversation.
