On 20 January 2017 Donald J. Trump took the oath of office and was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. On 27 January 2017 the 45th president issued his 8th executive order titled, PROTECTING THE NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES. The social and political events which have been occurring since clearly reveal the inevitable result of a failed political system and the American form of government.
Most Americans are ignorant about the founding principles espoused by the original government of the United States. For example, the ‘founding fathers’ never intended for the United States to become a ‘democracy’. They repeatedly denounced democratic government and declared the United States to be a Republic:
We are a Republic. Real Liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of Democracy.
— Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) Lawyer, Secretary of the Treasury & Secretary of States
Democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine percent.
— Thomas Jefferson, Author of the Declaration of Independence, 3rd President of the US
We have seen the tumults of democracy terminate, in France, as they have everywhere terminated, in despotism.
— Gouverneur Morris (1752-1816) Statesman, Diplomat, writer of the final draft of the Constitution
The second President of the United States, John Adams boldly declared that “…the true idea of a republic is ‘an empire of laws, and not of men.'”
The unfortunate truth is that while the founding fathers saw with clarity the dangerous and destructive power of democratic forms they failed to realize that, in effect, they themselves were setting up a government doomed to degenerate through democratic principles none-the-less. The essence of the problem emerged early on.
The original framers of the Constitution created a blueprint for the structure of the new government; it consisted of the Preamble and seven articles describing in detail the organized system of governance. It was during the ratification process that the door swung open to democratic decay. The anti-federalists argued in hysteria for a ‘bill of rights’. The federalists argued that a bill of rights would be dangerous in that it would be impossible to articulate every potential right and would lead to the implication that those rights not articulated would be fair game for infringement by the government. After much haggling and argument Congress approved the twelve articles of amendment to the original United States’ Constitution which became known as The Bill of Rights. Today there are twenty-seven articles in the Bill of Rights.
A bill of rights can be seen as a noble and worthy endeavor – but this is, like most American politics, based upon a naive world view based upon abstract principles which are simply untrue in the real world. It assumes that people are basically ‘good’ in nature and that there is a ‘universal’ truth that dictates an ‘equality’ of all.
The real world truth is that there is no absolute in human nature – one person’s ‘good’ might be another’s ‘evil’. And it is also a real world truth that no two people are ‘equal’ in any way. And here is where the Bill of Rights doomed the United States to its failed democracy that is on full display today.
The founding fathers of the United States main failure in the establishment of the Republic stems from the fact that they lacked vision and a clear real-world based definition of purpose. They espoused a dreamy belief in a nation built on abstract principles that were bound to morph into any form which the clever and the powerful would determine it to be. ‘Freedom’ and ‘liberty’ is not purpose. The fact is that the revolutionaries who won the battle in 1776 appear to have had no other agenda but to sever themselves from British dominance – legally and financially.
This is clear from the start – the entire process of the formation of the government was one of haggling and finagling, argument and compromise. It was a democratic mess in its beginnings – and the founders were too naive and blind of purpose to even realize it. They worked upon the formation of government void of any true considerations of human nature – or nature’s laws. John Adams alluded to these laws when he referred to ‘an empire of laws, and not of men’. In all of nature there is a law of hierarchy, a law of diversity in kind, a law of survival. The most noble civilizations, most of which were founded by Indo-European peoples, added to these laws the higher values of honor, dignity, and creativity.
These are not abstract principles – they are real-world knowns.
None of this was taken into consideration upon the foundation of the United States. From the start the US was born to be the swamp of chaos its become today. A country built by men whose first concerns were legal and financial, whose only vision was based upon an abstract principle referred to as ‘liberty and justice for all’, could only devolve into a nation of greed and selfishness. Leadership, responsibility, discipline, honor, integrity, even beauty – all the marks of a higher civilization – were never an integral part of the United States ethos. As a result, the clever and the powerful have used the abstract ideas of democracy and liberty to unleash every form of degeneracy and corruption into society.
The US government is not a government at all – it does not govern because it has no capacity to do so. In Trump’s failure to enforce an executive order we see that the president has no power and no authority, we see that the courts are willing to forestall an executive order in order to assess ‘rights’ of non-citizens over the security of the actual citizenry. We see a president who won’t even suggest a vote in Congress in support of his policy. There is no leadership. There is only a mob rule – the very thing the founders professed to detest.
‘Where there is no vision, the people perish.’
Anyone writing about the current social/political state of the US would be remiss if the following point would not be made: the events occurring today are not without design. There is an agenda being pursued but it is not one which favors those who have from sweat and toil raised the country to all of its possibilities which have been forestalled since the late 1950s. One need only to consider a small plaque on the Statue of Liberty to discover the larger program.
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
The Marxist left in the US have called this piece of Jewish babel into the forefront of their hysterical opposition to Trump’s immigration control executive order. It is no surprise that several Jewish entities have invoked it in social media – Chuck Schumer, Ezra Klein, Madeleine Albright, and the Atlantic’s Adam Serwer to name a few. These Jews, and the Marxist left in general, imply that the open invitation to ‘the wretched refuse’ of the world has been a part of the US ethos since its inception. This is of course a typical Jewish lie with no historical basis in fact – Scott Greer addresses this fallacy quite well in his post, The Statue Of Liberty Poem Is Now A Weapon In America’s Culture War.
The Statue of Liberty was a gift to the US from the French people in celebration of the ‘shared values’ of ‘liberty’ (represented by the torch) and law (represented by the tabula ansata held in Libertas’ left arm). Simple enough. It was dedicated in the New York Harbor in the year 1886. It wasn’t until the year 1903 that the plaque bearing this grotesque fantasy was inserted on the inner wall of the Statue’s base – interestingly, this was also during a time when immigration was a heated issue within the States.
The writer of this unsavory imagery was a proto-Zionist named Emma Lazarus. Michael P. Kramer at Haaretz explains:
For Lazarus, Bartholdi’s statue was not a neoclassical monument to shared Franco-American values, but a defiant symbol of American exceptionalism steeped in Hebraic values. My students often find it surprising that, along with her devotion to the immigrants, she was also dedicated (unlike most American Jews at the time) to the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine, penning poems and essays in the cause more than a decade before Theodor Herzl convened the first Zionist Congress in 1897. For Lazarus, the two causes were equal parts of a grand Jewish-prophetic vision.
Lazarus agenda is clear in the opening lines of this verse:
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles
For those of Greek and European cultures this statue was no ‘Mother of Exiles’ – she is the symbol of Western strength through freedom. Only a Jew would consider this bold representation in relation to ‘exiles’ – for it is the Jewish nature to always consider itself in exile as that is what they’ve always chosen to be with no real land of their own. Even the flame which to Western Culture represents the light of freedom is changed to represent ‘imprisoned lightning’ – Lazarus appears to be aware that lightning symbolized the power of Zeus, the father and king of all Western gods. In her interpretation that Father King is imprisoned in the torch of this ‘Mother of Exiles’ – it’s almost as if she audaciously declared the Whore of Babylon – the queen of the Talmud – to be superior over the Father God of the West. But more telling is the first line:
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame
Lazarus is referring to the legendary Greek sculpture of The Colossus of Rhodes – considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World it represented the Greek titan-god of the sun Helios and was erected to celebrate Rhodes’ victory the ruler of Cyprus, Antigonus I Monophthalmus. The Colossus stood as guard – symbolic of the fact that Rhodes had repelled a mass invasion of their land. In Lazarus’ mind she does not view Libertas’ with the eyes of Western cultural perception – in fact, she only sees a symbol which turns that culture upside down, inside out. Her ‘New Colossus’ doesn’t represent a masculine guard against a mass invasion of stated enemies, it represents a feminine progenitor of a people intent on invasion.
And herein lies the agenda – just as the Jewish Zionists seek the annihilation of the White people of Europe through miscegenation and immigration, so too do they seek the same in the United States. This has been their program since the early 20th century.
Alexander Hamilton came closest to having articulated a nation built on an ideal. He also understood the perils of foreign influence upon that ideal. Through unrestrained decadence, corruption, lawlessness, selfishness, insane tolerance for all that is unnatural and contrary to nature, and greed – promoted under the banner of ‘liberty’ and ‘democracy’ by the eternal enemies of western values – the United States has come to a time in its history which shows the world the complete and failed experiment of American democracy. The United States is not at all united, except in its ugly determination to fight against all that is noble in its struggle for survival.
The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits; on the exemption of the citizens from foreign bias and prejudice; and on that love of country which will almost invariably be found to be closely connected with birth, education, and family. The opinion advanced in the Notes on Virginia is undoubtedly correct, that foreigners will generally be apt to bring with them attachments to the persons they have left behind; to the country of their nativity; and to its particular customs and manners. They will also entertain opinions on government congenial with those under which they have lived; or if they should be led hither from a preference to ours, how extremely unlikely is it that they will bring with them that temperate love of liberty, so essential to real republicanism?
