House minority leader Nancy Pelosi once again recently displayed her callous disregard for the constitution and Bill of Rights. She stated that president Trump’s fiscal year 2018 budget fails as a statement of values, but succeeds as a “deconstruction” of the federal government. I am amazed at Pelosi’s callous disregard for the constitutionally mandated role of the federal government. On the other hand, for the sake of argument, it is possible that former speaker Pelosi suffers from a brutal lack of knowledge concerning the constitutionally mandated role of the federal government.

One of the major bi-products of the horrendous government school system in America is the of telling lies. Also the habit of purposely or by accident neglecting to either reveal or give proper focus concerning current events, issues and tragedies that occur in our republic. For example, let us take the issue of black men being shot by police officers. If you listen to broadcast opinion pundits or read columnists who lean to the political and moral left. They all have one thing in common. That is an aversion to the truth or the whole truth.

The great Frederick Douglas was born into slavery in 1818 and later died one of the major pillars of American history in 1895. He had a natural desire to seek the truth. Douglas also refused to except the bonds of physical, mental, or either spiritual slavery. Unfortunately, today far too many of our countrymen and women have fallen prey to the slavery of self defeat and bitterness, which in turn negatively affects our republic. Meanwhile, the United States as a whole has suffered a major decline because many sovereign individuals are achieving far below their positive potential. I am amazed at how Frederick Douglas focused upon and obtained his own freedom, long before Lincoln freed the slaves. Mr. Douglas lived a full life as an author, statesman and abolitionist. He was arguably the greatest orator of the 19th century.

Almost everyone knows that history repeats itself, much like a merry go round. The merry go round goes in a circle, you see a particular horse, it disappears as the merry go round revolves, but at the precise regular interval the same figure reappears again. In a sense, history is no different (but with one exception) that in the circle of history that repeats itself, unlike the merry go round the characters do change.
For example, seventy four years ago during December of 1941 the world was under extreme threat from both the Nazis and the nation of Japan. Leading up to the fateful year, Neville Chamberlain, the appeasing Prime Minister of Great Britain endangered that great empire by pandering to the Nazis. Chamberlain’s continued weak posture resulted in Hitler feeling free to rain down bombs throughout the United Kingdom capital of London.
The good news is the Chamberlain’s woeful ways were not the cornerstone on the long term outcome of Great Britain during World War Two. Even though V1 rockets destroyed hundreds of square miles of the fabled city, they did not wipe out the resolve of the people to overcome the enemy. The good news was that the Chamberlain persuasion wasn’t the final word on how Great Britain and the West would encounter and defeat the enemies of freedom.

George Washington, known as the father of our country was born February 11, 1731 according to the then used Julian calendar. In 1752 however, Britain and her colonies adopted the Georgian calendar which moved Washington’s birthday a year and eleven days to February 22, 1732. Americans celebrated Washington’s Birthday, long before congress declared it a federal holiday.
The centennial of his birth prompted festivities nationally and congress established a joint committee to arrange for the occasion. At the recommendation of the committee, chaired by Henry Clay of the senate and Philemon Thomas of the House, Congress adjourned on February 22, 1832 out of respect for Washington’s legacy and memory and in commemoration of his birth by reading aloud his Farewell address.
The President of the United States of America was once known as the commander in chief. The old saying about a house divided against itself may certainly be applied to our republic today. Not since the civil war has our beloved nation been so separated ideologically. The most noted era of division historically is the time surrounding the big war between the north and the south. There were sharp disagreements over states’ rights as well as the argument over whether individuals should be allowed to hold others in the bondage of slavery.
