Don’t Believe This Liberal Lie
July 30, 2010 by Chip Wood

What is the most important sentence in the U.S. Constitution? I would submit that it’s the very first one. Our Founding Fathers set the tone for everything they believed, and everything that would follow, in Article I, Section 1, sentence one.

It reads, “ALL legislative powers herein granted are vested in Congress….”

If ‘ALL’ lawmaking power resides in Congress, how much is in the Supreme Court?
How about the Executive Branch?

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

“Congress shall make no law,” either promoting a religion or prohibiting one.

According to the Constitution, what are the states allowed to do when it comes to religion (or just about anything else)?

The answer is, pretty much whatever they want.

All Americans should be given this lesson. Those who think that America is an arrogant nation should really reconsider that thought. Our founding fathers used GOD's word and teachings to establish our Great Nation and I think it's high time Americans get re-educated about this Nation's history.

Pass it along and be proud of the country we live in and even more proud of those who serve to protect our 'GOD GIVEN' rights and freedoms.

Here is how to understand the flag that laid upon it and is surrendered to so many widows and widowers.

Do you know that at military funerals, the 21-gun salute stands for the sum of the numbers in the year 1776?

Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the United States of America Flag 13 times? You probably thought it was to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but we learn something new every day!

The 1st fold of the flag is a symbol of life.

The 2nd fold is a symbol of the belief in eternal life

The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing the ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of the country to attain peace throughout the world.

The 4th fold represents the weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.

The 5th fold is a tribute to the country, for in the words of Stephen Decatur, 'Our Country, in dealing with other countries, May she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.'

The 6th fold is for where people's hearts lie. It is with their heart that they pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

The 7th fold is a tribute to its Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that they protect their country and their flag against all her enemies, whether they are found within or without the boundaries of their republic.

The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day.

The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and Mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.

The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for him, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of their country since they were first born.

The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.

The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding them of their nations motto, 'In God We Trust.'

After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for them the rights, privileges and freedoms they enjoy today.

There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep meaning.

In the future, you'll see flags folded and now you will know why.

Share this with the children you love and all others who love what is referred to, the symbol of ' Liberty and Freedom.'

Our Soldiers have preserved your right to make this choice!

Tim Dake, Wisconsin Grandsons of Liberty, requests wide notification of the book titled: PRESERVING DEMOCRACY.

Author Elgin Hushbeck spoke at the Independence Day Tea Party in Wausau in 2009.
They believe that this book has a strong message that needs to get out to as many people as possible.

Paperback Edition of Preserving Democracy to be Released
SUMMARY: The 2nd expanded paperback edition of Preserving Democracy by Elgin Hushbeck, Jr. will be released July 4, 2010 with advance copies available starting June 8, 2010.

RELEASE: Energion Publications announces the impending release of the 2nd, paperback edition of Preserving Democracy, the exciting exposé of the political situation in the United States today. With precision and merciless logic, author Elgin Hushbeck, Jr. cuts to the heart of the problems that threaten to weaken and ultimately destroy our democracy.

Why release a second edition? Because the political landscape in America seems to be wavering. "Many people realize that something is broken with government but they are not sure what. Preserving Democracy clearly reveals the root causes behind the problems that threaten our country," says Elgin.

Elgin is an engineer, business owner, author, lecturer, and commentator with a B.A in Electrical Engineering, and MA in Christian Apologetics, and an MBA in Technology Management. His interest and concern for how government works was instilled in him by his mother and father, to whom he is very grateful.

Elgin says of Preserving Democracy, "It does not waste time with partisan finger pointing. The problems we face are too serious. It focuses on the policies and the problems, not the politicians and the parties. This is not to say that it is a middle of the road book without a clear position. It is not. It argues strongly for the vision of the democratic republic set forth by the Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution – a Republic where individuals and liberty are dominant."

The second edition is in handsome paperback format, with new, larger type. In addition, it has three new forewords from readers of the first edition, one from a liberal, one from a moderate, and one from a conservative. Elgin has also written an extended update on the book, showing how various issues have developed since the first edition.

This final chapter will be especially valuable to those who are trying to make sense of the claims and counter-claims that have resulted from the tea party movement. If you would like to make informed decisions about this year's elections, you owe it to yourself to read Preserving Democracy.

Advance copies of Preserving Democracy will begin shipping June 9, 2010, and the official release date is July 4, 2010. The suggested retail price will be $14.99. For interviews or for further information contact Energion Publications via e-mail, or by phone at 850-525-3916, or see this book’s dedicated web site, To purchase your copy direct from the publisher, go to

Happy 4th of July

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: freedom is never free!

Get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games.

These men were true patriots and a far cry for the politicians who are the members of our congress today.

Remember this in November of 2010, when you vote.

The doctrine of nullification, i.e., the idea that states have the right to unilaterally render void an act of the federal government that they perceive to be contrary to the Constitution, finds its origins in the writings of Thomas Jefferson, most notably his 1798 Kentucky Resolutions, written to protest the Federalist Congress’s passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts.

Thomas Jefferson’s Kentucky Resolutions claim that the U. S. Constitution was a compact among the several states-whereby the states delegated certain limited powers to the U.S. government; any undelegated power exercised by the U. S. government is thus void.

Furthermore, the general government is not the final and authoritative judge of its own powers, since that would make the government’s discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of those powers-but rather the parties to the contract, the states, have each an equal right to judge for themselves whether the Constitution has been violated as well as “the mode and measure of redress”-since there is no common judge of such matters among them.

Thus, every state can of its own authority nullify within its territory “all assumptions of power by others”-i.e., all perceived violations of the Constitution by the federal government.
The Kentucky Resolution uses the Tenth Amendment to justify a strict construction of the general government’s powers; any powers not expressly delegated to the U. S. government remain the province of the states or the people, and any exercise of those powers by the general government is void and can be struck down by the states on that basis.

Furthermore, Jefferson warns against construing the “necessary and proper” clause so broadly as to justify the assumption of undelegated powers by the general government; the intent of the clause was to only enable the execution of limited powers, not to indefinitely extend the general government’s scope. Otherwise, this part of the Constitution would be used “to destroy the whole residue of that instrument.”

Jefferson counsels the states to be vigilant against violations of the Constitutions and not hesitant to strike down unconstitutional measures by Congress or the President; he writes that “free government is founded in jealously and not in confidence” and therefore urges that “no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

In other words, the states should not trust federal officials with non-constitutional powers simply because those particular federal officials might be trusted to use those powers benevolently; this kind of “confidence of man” leads to the destruction of free government.

Web article about the origination of ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL

Northwoods Patriots - Standing up for Faith, Family, Country -



I hope everyone out there has an enjoyable and safe 4th of July weekend.
As a Constitutional conservative, I believe it is important to take a bit of time and reflect upon our founders, who at great risk to themselves and their families, took up arms against what they believed to be a tyrannical and unjust government. Although we tend to associate the 4th of July with the ultimate result of their effort- the creation of a free and independent constitutional republic, we must remember that the 4th of July could perhaps best be described as the “end of the beginning.”

Despite what some may believe, the time period leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence was one of uncertainty. Although many of our founders were steadfast proponents of separation from very early on, there were others who were less certain about the proper course to pursue. Partly out of fear of the might of the British military, many at the time were more inclined to submit to the will of the crown, rather that pursue a course that would assuredly lead to violence. For some, the thought of breaking ties with the crown was simply heretical, despite openly acknowledging the many transgressions that had occurred. Such people recognized that problems existed and necessitated rectification, but none the less had great difficulty in stepping outside of their psychological comfort zone and embracing a new and untried course. Some of these people would eventually be swayed into supporting independence, but others simply refused to make such a transformation, regardless of the evidence presented.

Yet the fact that the Declaration of Independence was eventually drafted and signed shows that a definitive point in time was reached when the bulk of society finally realized that the paradigm had unequivocally shifted, and that the time to take action had finally arrived. The people had come to realize that the old way of doing things was no longer possible, and that a new course was necessary. It was accepted that freedom was in fact worth pursuing, but that to achieve it, a long road paved in blood, sweat, and tears would first have to be travelled.

We are today faced with a similar situation in that we will eventually have to come to terms with the true nature of the problems we are encountering. Many of us have for sometime realized that our current course is unsustainable and will ultimately lead to ruin if left unchecked. Others are just now starting to grasp the magnitude and scope of the predicament we are in. And of course, there are those who will continue to assert that there are no problems, that Government knows best, and that we must perpetuate the status quo because that is how things have always been done. Just as it was over two centuries ago, we are now faced with the same questions and problems that faced our nation’s founders- Do we move forward with a firm understanding that our past choices are what brought us to where we are today? That me must reverse course and embrace fiscal responsibility and a smaller, less intrusive government? Or do we attempt to perpetuate the unsustainable by refusing to acknowledge our past mistakes and thereby commit or children to a life of mediocrity?

On the 4th of July we will celebrate men who had the strength of character to put the past behind them and embark on an uncertain and dangerous journey in the pursuit of individual liberty. As you enjoy this weekend, please contemplate how hard it must have been to come to such a conclusion, and then consider the situation we are facing as a community and as a country. Our founders gave us the tools necessary to peacefully achieve the change that in their day, required the sacrifice of everything they had every worked for or cherished; for some even there own lives or the lives of their children. Our efforts will hopefully not require such sacrifices, but it will nonetheless be a long and hard journey, likely spanning decades, and it will require a steadfast devotion to our ideals and our principles. The problems we are facing can be rectified if we are willing to step forward, like our founders, and accept that the past must be put to rest. Like many of you, I am looking forward to the day when we can look back and say with certainty “that was the day that marked the end of the beginning, the day when we once again stood up and embraced the animating contest of freedom.”

Your friend in Liberty,
James Maillette
