Rules

“We have no government, armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion.  Avarice, ambition, revenge, and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net.  Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
~John Adams, 1798

Rules.

Rules bring structure and order.

Rules, expressed through charters and constitutions, are the foundation of society and laws created under those documents form a minimum code of moral conduct.  This is the concept of ordered liberty: a minimum code to allow both freedom and order.

The absence of order becomes chaos, while too much order brings overbearing control, and both bring tyranny — the former the tyranny of fear, the latter the tyranny of slavery.

Nature is ordered.  There are laws of nature that do not change, for if they change chaos would result.  Consider the rising and setting of the sun, the progression of the seasons, the phases of the moon, and gravity.  What would our planet be without these constants?

Humans are not ordered.  They are, by nature, selfish, violent, and power seeking.  Since Caine murdered Abel, through the latest ISIS atrocity, this has been true.  It is rampant in most of the world where despots rise to power through violence and keep their power by coercion and violence.  From the Middle East and Eastern Europe, through China and the rest of Asia, South America, and Africa, this is the norm.

The democracies of the West, including Israel, escaped the tyranny of power through the balance of ordered liberty.  However, in the last 170 years, since Karl Marx published the Communist Manifesto in 1848, the western democracies have steadily declined, moving away from ordered liberty towards central command and control systems designed to subjugate humanity by enforcing universal poverty through re-distribution of wealth, and violence.

The United States has a stronger tradition, and better concept, of ordered liberty.  The United States, however, is not immune from the so-called progressive ideas that are the antithesis of ordered liberty.  For the last 120 years, the secular-progressive movement, spearheaded by the Democratic Party, has engaged in an ongoing subversion aimed at destroying the founding principles of ordered liberty through limited government. 

Over time, through a series of calculated lies, manipulations, and falsehoods the secular-progressive movement has taken control of the education system, the entertainment industry, and the court system.  The tyranny of control is real, and it is threatening to divide the nation to the point of self-destruction.

The loss of liberty is slow, almost imperceptible process.  Like the fog in Robert Frost’s classic poem, it comes on little cat feet.  The results are chilling, stifling, and evil. 

Those who support anything that erodes ordered liberty are not patriots, they do not fear God, and their goals and proposals will bring tyranny — the tyranny of chaos, or the tyranny of control — and both are evil. 

The people who pursue these evil ends also use evil means.  They lie, cheat, steal, and re-define words so that they mean only what fits the secular-progressive agenda.  They are insufferably arrogant and engrossed in themselves, and what makes them feel better, with no regard or respect to anyone else, especially those who disagree with their blathering. 

Think back to then President B. Hussein Obama’s comment about rural voters, “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”  More recently, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party presidential candidate, maligned Donald Trump supporters saying, “. . . you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’”

How do we stop the slide of the United States into Venezuela?  First, we must heed the words of Edmund Burke who said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Those of us “deplorables” who “cling to our bibles and our guns,” those who believe in ordered liberty, in God, and the words of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, must rise and regain control.

We must wrest control of our institutions from those who wish to enslave us.  We must reclaim our children.  We must stop our support, whether financial or moral, of anyone or any group whose actions run contrary to liberty.

We are at a crossroads.  There is still time to change course peacefully, but the window of opportunity is small.  The time for action is now for complacency will guarantee tyranny.

*****************

“What country before ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion?  And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?  Let them take arms.  The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon, and pacify them.  What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?  The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.  It is its natural manure.”
~Thomas Jefferson, 1787

Hypocrites, Liars, and Patronizers Oh My!

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
~Amendment II to the United States Constitution, 1791

By Alden L. Benton

The three most despicable personality traits are hypocrisy, lying, and patronizing.  These are distasteful because each one represents something that is not true.

Here are some definitions to make things crystal clear:

Dictionary.com defines a hypocrite as: a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.  A hypocrite is also a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.

A liar is one who lies.  A lie is a false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood.

Patronizing is to behave in an offensively condescending manner toward another or a group from a perceived position of superiority.

We all know a few people who suffer from a chronic level of one or more of these character flaws.

However, the greater problem is that these obnoxious, hurtful, dangerous habits are the cornerstone, the foundation of the secular (Godless) progressive mindset that is deliberately destroying the fabric of our society, our God-given liberties, and our nation.

In Matthew 12:24-25, Jesus answered allegations from the Jewish Pharisees saying, “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.”

The destructive and divisive goals and behavior of the secular progressives have already manifested themselves in the legalized mass murder of unborn babies.  Not satisfied, secular-progressives launched an attack on the foundation of society — traditional marriage — and won with the legalization of the abomination of same-sex “marriage.” 

This was followed by attacks on religious freedom against Christians who refuse to participate in activities that are contrary to their faith.  This is facilitated by anti-God, anti-American subversives like the American Civil Liberties Union, in concert with their fellow communist travelers in the Democratic Party, the judicial system, and the educational system.

At the core of these activities are lies, deception, and hypocrisy based on the patronizing notion that “they” know what is best for the rest of us.  This notion of “we know best” is transient and unstable because it is not based on a moral code. It is based on how they feel at any given moment and upon a complete ignorance of human nature and intolerance for the liberties and freedoms of those who dare to defy the secular progressive mantra to speak their mind in opposition to their oppressive schemes.

This scheme replaces tolerance for intolerance, freedom of speech with censorship, and free thought with political corectness to control any who disagree. This slavery is called tyranny. It is the antithesis of liberty.

Nowhere is their dishonesty more revealing than it is with the issue of guns.  In the aftermath of the mass killing at a Florida high school in February, the secular progressives started spouting their usual mantra, which, when distilled to its core, means take all the guns so you can’t oppose us.

In fact, that incident was preventable.  The local sheriff and the Federal Bureau of Investigation both ignored dozens of warnings about the gunman.  There was an armed deputy stationed at the school who refused to confront the shooter.  Local deputies who responded to the incident remained outside of the school, cowering beside their cars as the shooter continued his rampage.

Now Broward County Sherriff Scott Israel is on a face-saving-I-did-the-right-thing anti-gun tour making excuses for his lack of leadership and the cowardice of his deputies while the media regurgitates his every word, championing the secular progress mantra of control.

Liar, hypocrite, and patronizer.

Contrast the supervised mass murder in Florida with a school shooting on March 21 at a Maryland school.  A 17-year-old student armed with a pistol critically wounded a 16-year-old girl and wounded a 14-year-old boy.

The difference between the two school shootings is simple and clear.  The school resource officer, Deputy First Class Blaine Gaskill, responded within a minute after the gunman fired his first shot, and fired a shot of his own.  Deputy Gaskill’s shot was simultaneous with the last shot of the gunman.  While it is not known whether the deputy’s shot killed the gunman, or the gunman killed himself, Deputy Gaskill’s actions saved the lives of many other students.

There is another, more sinister contrast between these two shootings.  The secular progressives and their media talking parrots are silent as this incident doesn’t advance the secular progressive cause of eliminating guns in our society.

A good guy with a gun killed a bad guy with a gun.  A good guy with a gun prevented the loss of innocent lives.  The facts are clear.  They cannot lie and expose their hypocrisy, yet their silence confirms their lies, hypocrisy, and patronizing.

We need more men and women of courage like Deputy Gaskill and a lot less of the cowards of Broward County like Sherriff Scott Israel.

Random Thoughts

“On this battlefield man has no better weapon than his intelligence, no other force but his heart.”
~ Jose Rizal

By Alden L. Benton

I profoundly resent the antics of privileged multi-millionaire sports figures protesting their “difficulties” in life.

These fools, blessed with talent most of us only dream about, are paid handsomely to play what amount to children’s playground games.

Get over it.

However, it is their right under the Constitution to say and do what they want, as long as there is no imminent threat of or incitement of violence or lawlessness.  This right, is stated clearly in Amendment I of the Constitution, the first of 10 amendments commonly known as the Bill of Rights.

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.

Conversely, those of us who think these “protests” are pure horse manure also have the right not to listen, to change the channel, or, heaven forbid, delete their inane tweets.

The way to hurt any leftist corporate enterprise is simple.  If you don’t buy into their stupid protests or philosophy, then don’t buy their products.

Professional sports are products.

You decide whether to subsidize whining, privileged, often racist, idiots, or not, by buying tickets, overpriced clothing and shoes, or watching their games.

I choose not to watch.  My life will continue without professional sports.  In fact, the quality of my life will improve.

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
~ John Adams

Activists along the entire right-left political spectrum are impatient and frustrated.

The left is frustrated because they are not in complete control of the reigns of power.  Division and lack of decisive action frustrate those on the right.  In addition, the perception of the right that the democrats and courts obstruct their goals further frustrates the right.

Many on the right want the president to issue more mandates through executive orders, the same practice of which they continuously complained during the Obama administration.

The practice where the left is most successful in obstructing the president, and the right, is through the legal system.  In and of itself this is not a problem.  In fact, it is the Constitutional system of checks and balances working.  There are three distinct branches of our government designed to separate power and to check any overreach of another branch.  That is the Constitution.

However, the problem arises from the fact the three branches of government, executive, judicial, and legislative, have become unequal.  The courts, from years of progressive/leftist nominations, have moved markedly left from the founding principles, and have usurped much of the executive and legislative powers and made them their own.

At the same time, the executive has assumed more power than was given in the structure of the Constitution.  This ceding of legislative power to the executive has been a slow, but steady process resulting in a weakened legislative branch, which has relinquished much of its remaining authority to unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats.

These faceless bureaucrats threaten our nation and our liberty as individuals.  Collectively, they are the Dark State or Administrative State, what the president has calls “The Swamp.”

The Dark State is the progressive dream.

The Dark State consists of faceless “experts” charged with manipulating and controlling all aspects of our daily lives to force conformity to the progressive/leftist goal of some refashioned notion of a perfect society filled with perfected robotic citizens marching in step to their Dear Leader’s commands.

If you think that is merely the ranting of a disgruntled conservative, think again.  Ask any western rancher or farmer about their struggles with the brutal tyranny that is the Environmental Protection Agency.  Ask the coal miners of Kentucky and West Virginia that lost their jobs because of punitive regulations written by unaccountable, faceless, bureaucrats acting extra-Constitutionally while entrenched in their cozy lifetime jobs in Washington, D.C.

I don’t know how to solve this.  However, I do know where we must go.

We must return to the rule of law, the original meaning of the Constitution, and to the idea of natural law where everyone is free to form an ordered society wherein commerce, social compacts, and property rights are encouraged and respected, and where the fact that our rights come from God, not the government, is the law of the land.

Additionally, we must return to a more normal, moral society where we protect the rights of the minority, but not at the expense of the majority by forcing the entire population to embrace lifestyles and ideas that they do not condone.  We must return to a civil society where individuals and groups have the freedom to discuss their differences in a calm and reasoned atmosphere free of threats and intimidation.

As a Christian, all I will pray for our leaders to have wisdom and courage and I trust God to resolve our problems.

In the meantime, we must arm ourselves with knowledge in order to find the answers that will save our Republic.

Just the Facts

“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”  ~John Adams

By Alden L. Benton

In the 1950’s television police drama Dragnet, when interviewing witnesses the stoic Sergeant Joe Friday tersely advised, “Just the facts ma’am, just the facts.”  It is because of this admonition that I call myself a Joe Friday journalist.

I believe, unlike my contemporaries, that facts matter.  No one can make a rational, reasoned decision about anything without valid, verifiable facts, aka, the truth.  Truth is not a moveable object.  Truth is not personal or relative.  It is immutable.  It simply is what it is.

Since taking office on January 20, President Trump has issued 22 proclamations, executive orders, and presidential memoranda.  While his supporters cheer, his opponents are apoplectic.  There is, however, a common denominator among Trump’s supporters, opponents, and many in the so-called mainstream media: Ignorance.

John Adams once said, “Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people.”  I am not implying anyone is stupid.  Ignorance is the lack of knowledge and knowledge is obtainable.  Stupid, on the other hand, is the lack of knowledge combined with the inability, or unwillingness, to seek or understand.

In the United States, there is an alarming degree of ignorance and misinformation regarding the founding documents and the operations of government.  The roots of this ignorance are myriad, but whatever its source the public needs honest, truthful information to guide its decisions.

The president’s supporters are confused and his enemies are enraged, while the public scratches their collective heads.  The real questions that the media outlets either refuse to answer, or choose to obfuscate, are what did the president’s order actually say and on what Constitutional and legal foundation are they based?

I understand that the average person in this country does not have the time or resources to find and read every executive action.  We rely on third parties, in most cases media outlets like television, radio, and cable news programming.

This system no longer disperses, “. . . a general knowledge among the people.”  Rather, for the bulk of the media outlets on both sides of the political spectrum, the information imparted is often naive and simplistic, or tainted and manipulated by personal or organizational political beliefs to produce agenda-driven propaganda.

The problem is not the lack of facts and truth.  The problem is the dearth of moral and ethical standards that compel one to tell the truth in any situation.

These principles come from the shared values of Judeo-Christian principles.  Christianity and Judaism teach us principles for living life and respecting others.  These principles are broader, and extend beyond the theological canons of organized religions.  Without these principles, our society will not function as our legal system supports the idea that the law is the minimum acceptable level of ethical and moral behavior.

The abyss of moral and ethical relativism in which we are suffering, is a result of more than a century of tacit acquiescence to the anti-principles of the secular progressives, individuals collectively bent on demonizing and marginalizing anyone of principle who dares to adhere to Judeo-Christian principles.

Many of my fellow citizens are ignorant of government, its structure, and operation.  As an individual, I cannot solve the underlying causes of that ignorance.  However, through this blog and the power of the internet, I can bring knowledge by presenting the facts in clear and concise language without bias or undisclosed agenda.

To fulfill this self-imposed mandate, I will attempt to analyze executive actions, and as many other issues as I can, in order to raise the level of understanding of those who read this blog.  After all, knowledge is power.

A Moral Change of Mind

“For having lived long, I have experienced many instances of being obliged, by better information or fuller consideration, to change opinions, even on important subjects, which I once thought right but found to be otherwise.”
~Benjamin Franklin

By Alden L. Benton

Now that the circus of the party conventions is over, it is time to take a serious look at the candidates they’ve presented to us who want to become the next president of the United States.

A fundamental question arises that all voters must answer: Which candidate represents the vision of America I would like to see?  This question transcends politics, personality, and party.  Both candidates have flaws.  So how should we vote, or should we even vote?

First, yes we must vote.  Voting is a right all adult citizens possess.  It is also a privilege.  We must take extreme care in deciding whom to select as the next president.

The individual voter owes it to the nation to make an informed decision.  The greatest danger to our republic and our liberty is the low-information voter, for as John Adams said, “Liberty cannot be preserved without general knowledge among the people.”

In recent columns, I wrote about the lack of principles of the leading candidates and suggested following the recommendation of Charles Spurgeon who said, “Of two evils, choose neither.”  My most recent column suggested an alternative solution, a solution that I no longer feel is viable.

After some research and thought, I have decided to go in another direction.

The future of America is at stake in this election and that future is far more important than party or personality.

My vision is to rebuild America, to restore the rule of law, to restore its founding principles, to restore its strength and vitality, to make us secure, and to return control of our lives to the people.

Finally, this election provides Americans the opportunity, perhaps our last, to marginalize those who would enslave us.  The so-called Progressives and their programs will do just that for, as John Adams also said,

“There are two ways to conquer and enslave a country.  One is by the sword.  The other is by debt.”

We all have been misinformed and, at worst, lied to, and manipulated by, the Progressive propaganda machine that masquerades as the mass media.  Conservative and religious thinking, coupled with principled behavior, are enemies of a cause that demands conformity. 

Progressives demand conformity through political correctness and silence enforced by shouting down those who disagree.  If that fails, they call you a racist or some other form of politically contrived phobia.  Finally, if you don’t sit down and shut up, Progressives, like schoolyard bullies when they don’t get their way, resort to violence.

Intimidation, fear, and political violence have no place in a Republic or in any civilized society.

If preserving my vision for the future of America and crippling the Progressive movement means voting for a flawed candidate, then morally, that is what I must do.

Therefore, the only viable choice to make this vision of America possible is to cast my vote for Donald Trump.

I encourage you to read this article by Wayne Grudem: Why Voting for Donald Trump Is a Morally Good Choice.  Gruden, a professor of theology and biblical studies, presents a reasoned, detailed, and eloquent argument for this position.

 Finally, to underscore the importance of this election, Dennis Prager wrote,

“… it is vital to understand what will happen if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency.  This country will be so far from what the Founding Fathers wanted, so different from what the #NeverTrumpers have always fought for, that it is almost impossible to see how America could recover from her — or any Democrat’s — victory.”

“Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.”  ~James 4:17 NASB

Heads They Win, Tails You Lose

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” 

~John Adams

By Alden L. Benton

The hoopla of the primaries is all but over. 

The upcoming party conventions are an expensive waste of time and effort as the two leading candidates have been assured the nomination of their party.

We have been presented with two very distasteful candidates.  To participate in the process, we are now forced to choose between a treasonous liar and an arrogant, pompous gasbag.  Dumb versus dumber: Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump.

Clinton is a socialist masquerading as a Democrat.  Trump is a Democrat masquerading as a Republican.

Both candidates are disingenuous hypocrites unworthy, politically or morally, of even visiting the White House, let alone occupying it as president.

Neither candidate has offered any tangible or detailed solutions to the myriad ailments and issues facing the United States now and into the future.

Neither candidate will take us forward, indeed, they most likely will, at best, maintain the status quo of massive debt, irresponsible spending, burdensome regulations, ever- higher taxes on the 100 per cent, and the ever-creeping loss of personal freedom under the guise of security, safety, and “free” stuff for all.  At worst, either candidate will accelerate our descent into the hell of socialism.

We have been forced to choose between the lesser of two evils.  This is not acceptable.  Charles Spurgeon, a 19th century Baptist preacher and author, advises us:
“Of two evils, choose neither.”

For those of you reading my blog for the first time, I am conservative and a Christian.  I believe that, to the best of our abilities, you work hard and take care of your family, honor God, and work hard at living a principled, ethical, and moral life.  In this context, Spurgeon’s advice is sound.

Advance the calendar from the mid-1800s of Spurgeon’s time to 2016.  The United States is fast becoming a godless, socialistic state transformed from a nation based on the rule of law and ordered liberty to a liberty-killing governmental leviathan that seeks to control every aspect of human behavior.  Spurgeon’s advice remains sound.

Which do we choose?  Who do we choose? 

Do we choose dumb or dumber?

Do we choose a liar and criminal or a gasbag pretender?

Do we choose democracy and a republic based upon ordered liberty, the rule of law, and opportunity, or socialism and government sanctioned equality of outcome resulting in poverty and misery?

Unfortunately, the only choices presented in the upcoming election are not between opposing principles, but between two unprincipled individuals.

Heads they win, tails you lose.

“Of two evils, choose neither.”

“Evil things are easy things: for they are natural to our fallen nature.  Right things are rare flowers that need cultivation.”  ~Charles Spurgeon

A Week as a “Low Information” Voter

“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge
among the people.” ~John Adams

By Alden L. Benton

I have not been on the internet for a week. 

In the age of 24/7 information overload, I found that I could actually survive and function with a massive reduction in my information intake. 

I don’t mean to minimize the need to be an informed citizen or the need to be aware of what is happening in one’s surroundings.  In fact, I mean quite the contrary, as information is a vital part of modern society.

However, it is not the quantity of information consumed that is important, but the quality of that information.  Having spent most of my day catching up with the onslaught of a week’s worth of email, I have made some observations.

Most of the so-called mainstream media have failed in the last week. First, they failed in their silence on the trial of a doctor accused of murdering babies who survived abortion.  Second, the failed in their sloppiness, in using too many words that were not checked for accuracy in their coverage of the Boston bombings and the search for suspects.  Perhaps they should heed the words of Abraham Lincoln when he said, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

Social media, like Facebook and Twitter, are useful tools.  However, they became dangerous weapons of false and misleading information during the investigation of the bombings in Boston.  Thousands of people armed with Smart phones with photo and video capabilities were far more useful.

Our nation faces threats as dangerous as North Korean missiles and al Qaeda — hackers.  They steal, destroy, and disrupt from their shadowy lairs.  If this sounds farfetched to you, it was a false story reporting that the White House had been bombed that sent the stock market plummeting.  Hackers planted the story on the Associated Press Twitter account. 

The term “low-information voter” is really an epithet hurled at everyday Americans by the so-called political and intellectual elite that inhabit government and the Pacific and Atlantic coasts.  These people don’t have a clue.  They live in relative wealth and privilege and refuse to acknowledge their nearsightedness.  Real people have jobs and families that occupy most of their waking hours and cannot spend hours on end following the event de jour.  They struggle to find answers with little or bad information because most of the mainstream media is biased and unreliable.  They have little time to search for the truth.

In dealing with the Soviet Union, Ronald Reagan said, “Trust, but verify.”  Today, we all must operate on the principle of verify, and then question — especially when dealing with our own government and media.

“…Cities may be rebuilt, and a People reduced to Poverty, may acquire fresh Property: But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored.  Liberty once lost is lost forever.  When the People once surrendered their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.”  ~John Adams
