ALL American Flags Should be at Half Staff: MOURNING THE DEATH OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC

Benjamin Franklin knew that it was just a matter of time before our Republic would crumble. He obviously knew the hearts of men and women.

At the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Benjamin Franklin wrote a speech which was read by another statesmen because Franklin was so advanced in years. Here is part of this speech, and I will focus on a specific part of his words in this article:

In these sentiments, Sir, I agree to this Constitution with all its faults, if they are such; because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other.” (emphasis mine)

DESPOTIC GOVERNMENT

These prophetic words of Benjamin Franklin have been fulfilled and will be celebrated on January 20, 2021.

Meaning of DESPOTIC 

From DictionaryCambridge.org

  Having unlimited power over other people, and often using it unfairly and cruellya despotic government/regimehandful of corrupt and despotic leaders make the decisions.Synonyms brutal callous cruel harsh (UNKIND) tyrannical tyrannous vicious source

I would like to add that a government which excludes God from its laws and legislation IS a Despotic government indeed. And that is where we have arrived brethren. Those who have come into power by corruption and deception are God haters. We must pray for them.

We have arrived at a point in our history where Franklin’s words have, beyond a doubt, been realized. I do not know if we will come back to our Republic. That is in the hands of our Omnipotent God.

I would like for the reader to see various quotes from our forefathers to better understand the hearts and minds of these men:

“A simple democracy is the devil’s own government.”

— Benjamin Rush (1745-1813) Founding Father& signer of the Declaration of Independence

Let the American youth never forget that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils and sufferings and blood of their ancestors, and capable, if wisely improved and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to the latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence. The structure has been erected by architects of consummate skill and fidelity; its foundations are solid, its compartments are beautiful as well as useful, its arrangements are full of wisdom and order, and its defenses are impregnable from without. It has been reared for immortality, if the work of men may justly aspire to such a title. It may nevertheless perish in an hour by the folly, or corruption, or negligence of its only keepers, the People. Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people in order to betray them.”

— Joseph Story (1779-1845) Lawyer, Supreme Court Justice & influential commentators on the U.S. Constitution

“There is no good government but what is republican. That the only valuable part of the British constitution is so; for the true idea of a republic is ‘an empire of laws, and not of men.’ That, as a republic is the best of governments, so that particular arrangement of the powers of society, or in other words, that form of government which is best contrived to secure an impartial and exact execution of the law, is the best of republics.”

— John Adams (1797-1801) Second President of the United States and Patriot

“If they proceed in it (removing the Bible from schools), they will do more in half a century in extirpating our religion than Bolingbroke or Voltaire could have effected in a thousand years. …I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government; that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Biblefor this divine book, above all others, favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws, and all those sober and frugal virtues which constitute the soul of republicanism.”

— Benjamin Rush (1745-1813) Founding Father& signer of the Declaration of Independence

“As riches increase and accumulate in few hands, as luxury prevails in society, virtue will be in a greater degree considered as only a graceful appendage of wealth, and the tendency of things will be to depart from the republican standard. This is the real disposition of human nature; it is what neither the honorable member nor myself can correct. It is a common misfortunate that awaits our State constitution, as well as all others.”

— Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) Lawyer, Secretary of the Treasury & Secretary of State

“It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.”

— Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Third President of the United States

But between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”

— John Marshall (1755-1835) House Member, Secretary of State  and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

— Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Third President of the United States

Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate (lost all regard to good principles,virtue or decency, dashed, broken or ruined in morals, shameless in wickedness) are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” 

— Joseph Story (1779-1845) Lawyer, Supreme Court Justice & influential commentators on the U.S. Constitution

Democracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy; such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man’s life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit, and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable [abominable] cruelty of one or a very few.”

— John Adams (1797-1801) Second President of the United States and Patriot

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”

—  Thomas Jefferson, Author of the Declaration of Independence, 3rd President of the U. S

“They define a republic to be a government of laws, and not of men.”

— John Adams (1797-1801) Second President of the United States and Patriot

“A democracy is a volcano, which conceals the fiery materials of its own destruction. These will produce an eruption, and carry desolation in their way.”

— Fisher Ames (1758-1808) Founding Father and framer of the First Amendment to the Constitution

“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. It is in vain to say that democracy is less vain, less proud, less selfish, less ambitious, or less avaricious than aristocracy or monarchy. It is not true, in fact, and nowhere appears in history. Those passions are the same in all men, under all forms of simple government, and when unchecked, produce the same effects of fraud, violence, and cruelty. When clear prospects are opened before vanity, pride, avarice, or ambition, for their easy gratification, it is hard for the most considerate philosophers and the most conscientious moralists to resist the temptation. Individuals have conquered themselves. Nations and large bodies of men, never.”

— John Adams (1797-1801) Second President of the United States and Patriot

“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 U. S.

“Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they, therefore, who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure…are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”

— Charles Carroll (1737-1832) Founding Father and Leader from Maryland

“That the only foundation for a useful education, in a republic, is to be laid in religionWithout this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty; and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.”

— Benjamin Rush (1745-1813) Founding Father& signer of the Declaration of Independence

“Upon my return from the army to Baltimore in the winter of 1777, I sat next to John Adams in Congress, and upon my whispering to him and asking him if he thought we should succeed in our struggle with Great Britain, he answered me, ‘Yes—if we fear God and repent of our sins.’ This anecdote will, I hope, teach my boys that it is not necessary to disbelieve Christianity or to renounce morality in order to arrive at the highest political usefulness or fame. Again in Baltimore I asked John Adams if he thought we were qualified for a republican forms of government, He said, “No—and never should be till we were ambitious to be poor.”

— Benjamin Rush (1745-1813) Founding Father& signer of the Declaration of Independence

The Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government… I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable, in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence.”

— Noah Webster (1758-1843)  Father of the Dictionary & American Patriot

The known propensity of a democracy is to licentiousness, which the ambitious call, and the ignorant believe to be, liberty.

— Fisher Ames (1758-1808) Founding Father and framer of the First Amendment to the Constitution

You may read more quotes from our Founding Fathers regarding our Republic here

Brethren, please understand that this illegal takeover of all branches of our government is the work of the devil himself. As God uses men and women who love Him and belong to Him for good, Satan uses the godless to do his bidding. And in this last faux-election, we saw the devil raging because he knows that his time is short.

There is a Law much Higher than the law of men. It is God’s law, and we who belong to Him must obey His law.

God is judging America

If God did not judge this nation, then He certainly would apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah! The sins of this once great nation are egregious and a stench in the nostrils of our Creator and Father.

Persecution of Christians is close at hand

Under the new despotic regime, we will be commanded to renounce our faith and to act against the Word of God. THIS is when we must realize that God’s law reigns supreme, and if we are to obey what we know is right, we will suffer consequences.

But Fear Not! Our Lord is with us every moment of every day; and one day Jesus will come and take us away from this incredibly WICKED place!

“But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).

Brethren, this Scripture from Acts does not give the Christian the right to break the law except where human law violates God’s Law.  And that will inevitably be the case in the coming years under the new DESPOTIC government.

We obey God rather than men.

BIDEN’S MIGRANT CARAVAN HEADING TO THE U.S. HE SAYS “Hold On Guys – This is not a Good Time But Be Patient – I’ll let ALL of You In

From Townhall.com

WATCH: Biden’s First Migrant Caravan Is Already Thrashing Its Way Across Central America

A large horde of migrants is making its way through Central America hellbent on getting to the United States in time to capitalize on Joe Biden’s plan to amnesty millions of illegal aliens. They better hurry. Biden is reportedly planning to introduce an amnesty bill in his first 10 days in office. 


Video from The Hill shows migrants streaming across Guatemala’s border with no regard for the country’s immigration or health restrictions.

Todd Bensman, Townhall writer and fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, reports violent migrants traveling in the Honduran caravan hurled stones and clashed with Guatemalan forces after blasting their way past Honduran police on Friday night. According to Bensman, the caravan has reached a size of 5,000 people. 

President Trump put an end to the migrant caravan crisis by using the threat of tariffs to achieve policy victories, such as pressuring the Mexican government to use its military to block roads leading north and requiring migrants to remain in Mexico while their asylum claims are adjudicated. 

But President Trump leaves the White House in a few days and his successor is vowing to provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. Migrants once deterred by Trump’s policies rightfully believe they will have better luck with the new administration. 

memo circulated among senior staffers in the incoming Biden administration reveals the 46th president plans to introduce an immigration bill during his first 10 days in office. The bill will reportedly include a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens. 

Biden has also pledged to undo Trump-era immigration policies responsible for ending the migrant crisis but admitted that undoing his predecessor’s policies will be a delicate process that could take months to complete. 


“The last thing we need is to say we’re going to stop immediately, the access to asylum, the way it’s being run now, and then end up with two million people on our border,” Biden said in late December. 

Biden knows Trump’s policies ended the migrant crisis, but the incoming president must placate his left-wing base by reversing the successful policies anyway. Couple the reversal of these policies with Biden’s amnesty bill and the current caravan battling its way north may look like a small drop compared to the tidal wave that could be unleashed. source

“It’s like Déjà Vu all over again.”

25,000 National Guardsmen to be Vetted by FBI before Inauguration: Someone is Very Worried

Waiting until the 11th hour to “vet” the 25k National Guardsmen who are to “keep the peace” at the illegal inauguration of ‘China Joe’ Biden seems suspicious to me. By that I mean that it makes me wonder if someone tipped off the powers that be in Washington, that they might be bringing in soldiers who are loyal to our President Donald Trump.

And I’m just wondering about the criteria the FBI will use. If they are looking at whether the troops are Dems or GOP supporters – is that legal? And secondly, I would bet that the greater majority are Conservatives.

What a conundrum for the Dems, huh?

Or it may be simply erring on the side of caution, though I doubt it. I do believe that the majority of the guardsmen are Trump loyalists, so this should be interesting to watch as it unfolds in D.C. on Wednesday.

I pray for the safety of everyone.

From foxnews.com

Defense officials in Washington, D.C., are concerned about an insider attack from service members deployed to Washington, D.C., for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all 25,000 National Guard troops in the city, Fox News has learned.

The Associated Press first reported on the extraordinary security effort. 

The U.S. Army issued a statement late Sunday obtained by Fox News that said it is working with the Secret Service to determine if any service members on hand need additional background screening. The statement said that all service members are familiar with the Threat Awareness and Reporting Program, which “requires department personnel to report any information regarding known or suspected extremist behavior that could be a threat to the department or the U.S.”

The riot at the Capitol earlier this month that left five dead and resulted in dozens of arrests prompted officials in the city to take drastic measures to ensure the Biden inauguration is secure.

Officials increased the number of National Guard members who will be deployed in Washington during the presidential inauguration from 15,000 to 20,000 on Wednesday, more than three times the number of U.S. troops currently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told the AP that officials are conscious of the potential threat, and he warned commanders to be on the lookout for any problems within their ranks as the inauguration approaches. He said he and other leaders say they have seen no evidence of any threats, and officials said the vetting hadn’t flagged any issues that they were aware of.

McCarthy told the wire service that members from across the military were at President Trump’s rally prior to the riot, but it’s not clear how many were there or who may have participated in the breach at the Capitol.

The AP reported that the Secret Service is in charge of event security, but there is a wide variety of military and law enforcement personnel involved, ranging from the National Guard and the FBI to Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department, U.S. Capitol Police and U.S. Park Police.

“Any type of activity that involves violence, civil disobedience, or a breach of peace may be punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice or under state or federal law,” the Army’s statement read. source

Sounds as if they are pretty worried.

Timing is Everything: How Facebook Permanently Removed Me From Their Platform Today

Right before the tentative illegal Inauguration of ‘China Joe’ Biden, FB sent me this official “BAN” of My Presence on Their Platform:

I am in the process of moving my thousands of articles from the last seven years to a private domain. If there are any particular articles which you want to save – please go into my WP and print them out now.

It is possible that WordPress may follow suit in banning me.

My husband, Timothy Ungurean is still on Facebook. If any of you would like to “friend” him, please do so and he will accept.

If I disappear, you will certainly know why.

Brethren, I will see all of you in heaven.

DO NOT FEAR.

Keep focused on our Lord and His Word.

In Yeshua,
