Thanksgiving when we most need to believe…

24 Nov : 18:31 Category: American Holidays
This year many are facing wholly unexpected circumstances, situations that were beyond their imagining a year or two ago. It may be family dispersed, finances dissolved, households in disarray… the stable times being replaced by insecurity, perhaps even loss.

These are times, no matter where we find ourselves, be it at the head of the table in the family dining room or surrounded by others queued up to receive the blessing of a meal at a charity kitchen, when we must recall what has been taken for granted throughout most of our lives. It may be, by Providence, that I am in a position by which to order these things in my mind and my heart.

For more than a year, I have had the opportunity to travel this country in ministry. Not the kind of mission work that is sustained by a particular church or denomination, being unaffiliated with institutions; but having a ministry that is simple… that of sharing the Word of God, our Christ Jesus, through the few gifts He has put in my charge. It has been an eye-opening experience to take the leap of leaving a well-ordered life, travel this nation and be invited into homes to share their bounty, or lack, as the case may be.

The core of our country is comprised of generous people, who often give when they can least afford to do so, those who understand the nature of our beginnings and our sovereignty. When we recall the words spoken by President George Washington as he answered the call for a national day to give thanks to our true provider, God, he did not forget the years of struggle, hardship and loss he and his neighbors had suffered in order to create this exceptional nation…

“Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a Day Of Public Thanksgiving and Prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:

“Now Therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the Twenty-Sixth Day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed;– for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish Constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;– for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;– and, in general, for all the great and various favours which He has been pleased to confer upon us.”

Any words that I may write cannot come close to expressing the fervor of our first president in acknowledging God and His role in what we now benefit: a free country, should we choose to keep it.

Consider the last words written above. We have made foolish choices in keeping our own counsel rather than that of God, decisions that have placed us upon a threshold of once again losing the liberty for which these men and women fought so diligently. Instead of giving thanks where it is due, we have raised up generations that expect to never experience hardship or want, they demand what they do not understand, rising up in the streets proclaiming disenfranchisement when they are so incredibly endowed with plenty that they cannot recognize it.

Being challenged to travel this country, taking nothing but the Bible as guide, and faith as provider, has expanded my perspective further than I could have anticipated, to recognize the power of hope and standing strong in the face of adversity. History teaches us that when we relinquish our connection to God, our Creator, and follow our own thoughts, giving praise and worship to false powers created by man (Jeremiah 44:15-20 – you might like to insert “government” in place of Queen of Heaven), then do we lose our baseline, direction and, ultimately, our liberty. Desolation occurs in the heart first and the land follows.

President Washington spoke the words by which we can live and give thanks with clear conscience, knowing that whatever circumstance or wherever we find ourselves on any day, not just Thanksgiving Day, we realize that from which this nation arose… from servitude to man, a king, to freedom in God’s bounty. Remember at what cost was our liberty won and give praise and thanks to our Creator, to Christ, who led our forefathers, through faith, to establish what we now take for granted.

Wherever you may be, under shelter or a chandelier, Thanksgiving Day is a reminder of the hope, faith and sacrifice made for each of us.


God bless,

Harry Reid's Filibuster Of House Yields To Veterans' Day Politics

11 Nov : 21:08 Category: American Holidays

The article posted 2 days ago, regarding Harry Reid and the 21 House Bills sitting untouched by the Senate, noted HR 674 3% Withholding Repeal and Job Creation Act, a 4-page bill, absolutely bipartisan, and with 269 co-sponsors, as a most curious puzzle.

Section 113 of Obama's American Jobs Act, the act that also causes unemployment to become protected under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (see http://changingwind.org/index/news.php?extend.181.2), also urges a mere postponing of this withholding on government contractors that is actually repealed by HR 674, and this repeal appears to be the obvious reason for such bipartisan support, http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-674.

Of course, “no good deed goes unpunished” in politics. According to news reports, “Democrats attached a provision of the AJA that benefits veterans.” It appears this was done in hopes all credit and “optics” of this story will be available to spin the credit to President Obama for the positive results of passing HR 674. Additionally, by linking a provision that actually originated in the AJA there is the erroneous appearance of 2 portions of AJA being passed, and the particular Veterans provision being passed on Veterans' Day doesn't hurt. You'll note at the above link that HR 674 was introduced in February of 2011 by Congressman Walter Herger, Republican of California.

Section 201 of the AJA is a tax credit provision that appears to be somewhat modeled on HR 561, 2 pages, no co-sponsors, and introduced by Congressman Peter Welch, a Democrat of Vermont, on February 8, 2011, http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-561. And of course, there is a similar Republican bill that was introduced around the same time:

H.R. 781: Veterans' Employment Transition Support Act of 2011, 7 pages long, introduced on February 17, 2011 by Thaddeus McCotter, who, I believe, is a GOP Presidential Primary Candidate, Republican from Michigan.

Described: “To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to allow employers a credit against income tax for hiring veterans.”

Of course then we had the unnecessary Debt Ceiling Travesty, where the Tea Party is vindicated by S&P downgrade, after a Congress that the President and his Progressive party had 2 full years of complete control over and cared only about passing Obamacare, failed to raise the debt ceiling to pay for it, and their persistent assumption that government spending must increase annually at around 40% per year. Anyone in America thinking they'll only “tax the rich” to pay for it, hasn't come to comprehend “rich” is a term of ambiguity, a moving target pursuant to the innate jealousy origin of it.

Once we were done with the public spectacle of the Republicans in the House seizing the opportunity to show spinelessness when it comes to government's primary duty: enforcing a Constitutionally Republican Limited Government, which then resulted in a political cover operation for both parties, the “Super Committee” to divide 300 million people by 12 (25 million per representative), the House returned to pursuing this Veterans Employment issue:

H.R. 2443: Tax Credit to Hire Veterans Act of 2011, 5 pages, 10 co-sponsors including Congressman Welch from HR 561, and introduced on July 7, 2011 by Congressman Jeff Miller, Republican of Florida.

Described: “To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to increase the limitation on expensing certain depreciable assets for certain businesses that hire veterans.”

Now each bill has a different approach, yet all are a means of amending the tax code to achieve more Veteran hiring, assuming an incentive will aid businesses whose profits are down due to an anemic economy.

Together these bills show that the origins of the idea of giving a tax break to businesses for hiring Veterans doesn't originate in the AJA but from our representatives, and likely by Veteran Citizen constituents who have contacted these representatives.

This takes to task the idea of “no special interest groups,” doesn't it.

Here we are on Veterans' Day, the “Politibureaucratocracy” in DC making sure to spit on this day by adding some Veteran amendment to a bill about government contractors who, like any public employee union member, do work for the government, for us, and, in not having a union pension due to being business owners, merely are going to be able to keep more of the money they actually earned once the act passes.

What I am saying is that this bill, the AJA provision, and all of the rest above, define America's finest as a bookkeeping entry, a mere tax concern, either in the Statute books or the employers’ financial books, these bills merchandise the finest America has to offer, People who put their lives on the line for every single one of us, and especially those in Washington whose polity often offends our enemies who don't believe in Freedom. Thus, these absolute specimens of the highest patriotic Honor, and whose commitment to duty is above reproach are, by politics alone, on the verge of being a privileged class of chattel property as a subject regulatory authority for political purposes and ambitions, mistreated by Washington DC once more, and especially their Commander-In-Chief, both by himself and his party – It is his Jobs Act after all, right?

Strong charge? Sure. Reality of our heroes? Absolutely! Justification? Here ya go:

H.R. 2433: Veterans Opportunity to Work Act of 2011, 29 pages, 31 co-sponsors, and introduced on July 7, 2011 by Congressman Jeff Miller, Republican of Florida.

Described: “To amend title 38, United States Code, to make certain improvements in the laws relating to the employment and training of veterans, and for other purposes.” -- emphasis mine.

Employment and training of veterans,” my God a bill that isn't focusing on taxes, expenses, and the bookkeeping entries of politics, nor the optics of Veterans' Day, but the Veterans themselves, as people who are looking for work, and have been affected by being in the service of our government, and to which We all owe an unpayable debt of gratitude, that has not a single Democrat, including Peter Welch, co-sponsoring it.

Imagine that, the touchy-feely Democrats, the party of the Special Interest Group, from Civil Rights (see American Jobs Act: “The Illegal Alien & Unemployed Civil Rights Act”); to Wall Street, being the party that forced the Bank Bailouts upon the people, ala Harry Reid (see The Bailout: An Extra Constitutional Shnooker); and the party whose backers Democrats have, in patronage, elevated financially over time, that their foreign investments can bring down the U.S. Economy (see Michael W. Masters Senate testimony May 20, 2008) and now support the national Occupy movements, chanting in the streets to legally admit actions compliant to First Amendment limits when they confront government, while physically and actually carrying on an illegal act (see Nuisance Laws & Lack Of Permit Enforcement Define OWS and note “Occupation” is a military term as OWS is using it), and yet this party, cannot show bipartisan support for a bill that helps the genuine, person, the American Citizen, who, together with their family, sacrificed more than any budget cut this Congress can come up with? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Veterans' Day IS a day to show support for our Veterans, not the employers who hire them, not the legislative process these Veterans helped protect, nor the people in Government and office of President whom they help keep safe, along with the entire population of the United States of America, legal and illegal, irrespective of color, race, religion, gender, sexual preference, Native American Land, poverty, wealth, success, failure, employed or unemployed, or any other bias that the left would easily divide this nation by for political gain, and all ignored and irrelevant to the Soldier fighting for his country!

The best support for Veterans that I could imagine right now, that the “Politibureaucratocracy” in DC could do, is to be as unbiased in their, alleged “civil” acts and deeds as magistrate legislators, instead of merely claiming to be members of a government that is operating according to Our Written Constitution, to act according to their Oath Of Office, almost identical to the very oath our Soldiers take regarding Our Written Constitution, and affect the same unbiased acceptance of their voluntary servitude to the American People, and especially our Veteran Citizens as people.

In fact, I wish today that every Democrat and Republican in the House, who can do so in good conscience, co-sponsor HR 2433, and urge Harry Reid to hold an immediate floor vote, and let's get this bill passed on Veterans' Day for our Veterans!

Our Veterans and soldiers in the field right now have shown courage under fire from all sides, including your political wrangling. It is time the members of government in Washington, D.C. showed a complimentary courage. Never forget these Soldiers went in without any guarantee what the result would be, the debt owed is due to no one being able to know the exact price they'd pay going in, and following orders. Their Honor is in what they gave for free, what they lost at personal cost. What, oh great DC “Politibureaucratocracy,” are you willing to give for free to they who did so for you already? What are you willing to lose, and forego the personal cost of, for those whose past actions have secured the continuance of this nation every single day?

Thank you for reading,

What cost liberty ten years after 9/11?

11 Sep : 02:11 Category: American Holidays

September 10, 2011

What cost liberty ten years after 9/11?

Recalling the first assault against our country to occur on the continent since the War of 1812, can overwhelm most of us when we picture where we were upon hearing the news, or watching the collapse of the twin towers in full color.

Shock. We reeled with it. Working a health ministry in rural Idaho on that fateful day, without television, radio was our only access to immediate news. And we were listening to talk radio when the reports came flooding in about a plane crashing into the World Trade Center in New York. We were aghast at the bulletin, wondering if it could be a replay of an Orson Wells-style hype. It wasn’t long before the news broke of a second plane careening into the sister building and the rapid implosion that followed. But the day was not done for these practitioners of evil. The Pentagon was afire, and, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, heroes plummeted to their deaths in the course of waylaying their jet’s hijackers hell-bent on blazing their way to paradise via Washington, D.C.

The knowledge that heinous deeds had been perpetrated against our country, the world’s bastion of freedom, was almost beyond our comprehension. Not in almost 200 years had the continental United States suffered a invasive attack by a hostile enemy. But to what of our existence were these immoral adversaries antagonistic?

Liberty.

This is a concept completely and utterly inconceivable to those who exist under a tyrannous creed, a dogma that curtails all free thought and activity. Thus, they irrationally perceive our way of life to be a threat to theirs. Whether that autocratic doctrine is religious or political, it all comes to the misconception that, without repressive rules to guide every step one makes, life is not worth the breath it takes to fill one’s lungs. This is the mentality, the insecure, self-doubting attitude, that drives people to embrace intransigent beliefs. To waver from one’s deeply-rooted conviction that has been thrust into a mind for all their waking hours, be it in the classroom, home, or place of worship (including governmental institutions) is unimaginable. In actuality, a theocracy could be anything from an Islamic state to a communist, as both require an unquestioning faith in the system, and its leaders. What it truly entails is the total relinquishment of individual thought, purpose and fulfillment. In other words, this country, the freedom envisioned by our Founding Fathers, is simply anathema to the Muslim group-think, and, by their reckoning, only fit for destruction because they cannot understand its premise.

The proof of our liberty is the fact that we can discern between free thought and that which is circumscribed to impose “order,” otherwise known as despotism, the purpose of which is to control, plain and simple. The only people (religious or political) who require control are those who wish to retain wealth and power unto themselves, a closed society that our founders had already tasted, and knowingly fought against to acknowledge the sovereignty of God, who is our one and only definitive ruler.

So we remember the cost of freedom: the willingness to be hated, and to stand opposed to brutality no matter what evil may be wrought against us. Because freedom is the ability to express oneself by word, faith and calling; to create wealth for oneself and family, and to share that prosperity as they see fit, blessing others with largesse without regulation or direction by governmental bodies, religious or bureaucratic.

It is a steep price to pay, but it is one that we recognize and readily give, when others prefer to be extorted of their God-bestowed right of freedom by power-hungry autocrats and self-proclaimed rulers.

A brief memory of 9-11-2001 by Toddy

Living in California at the time, I was, at best, a moderate who was leaning Liberal. People all around me against George Bush, explaining how Gore was robbed, while also telling me they didn't want to pay taxes, yet complaining about not receiving some entitlement check on time, and always ready to blame the Federal Reserve for every problem America has. I was a believer in the notion we did this to ourselves, someone who believed this deluded notion so strongly, I denied myself the sadness, denied myself the life that comes from truly experiencing the grief of the moment if I had been thinking of others. But, instead, there was anger at Bush and the idea that government had done this to us on purpose, as a way to declare martial law and brand us with the mark of the beast. The year 2000 computer glitch was supposed to make that happen, but failed, and of course, that created an excuse to think the next event would be the final one, that they weren't prepared to take over and control us when 2000 came.

The above are the thoughts I deluded myself with, until, I ran across an effort to make an internal impeller of the jet that struck the Pentagon, an object they were claiming means it was a small plane, to lie about what really happened, just to say George Bush and the U.S. Government did this on purpose, as a hoax, as a reason to go to war. It was the research to prove the government was behind 911 that began a review of all of what I believed, and helped me understand just how much of what I knew was merely propaganda to feed my desire to believe in wrong more than right, a desire to distrust more than find the truth and appreciate reason. As I discovered how wrong I was then, by details and facts that could only be seen once I set aside the bias that blinds, I found my way back to the traditional, to the comprehension of America, of Freedom and Individual Liberty, to learn the irrationality of trying to legislate order from a chaos that Liberty naturally manifests in the difference between each of us, that yet, due to Liberty, becomes our similarity, what makes us Americans.

So, today the memory of the nearly 3,000 Americans who lost their lives to terrorism brings home what true terror is: living without Liberty.

The Right To Subsist

30 May : 04:26 Category: American Holidays
What tribute is there to those who died in the name of freedom, than, after all the wars, to have forgotten why we fought them?

Sure, we may have made mistakes, strategies failed, and improper alliances done, but there remains the reason for it all. Why would we gamble alliance with an ally who has little greater love for us than our enemies, whether enemies of America or mankind as a whole?

Therein lies the Conundrum of Truth:

America fights for what it believes sacred, our armies a composite demographic in the belligerent claim of Freedom (at least until President Wilson decided segregation necessary). America is the persistent exporter of the idea of unalienable rights, guaranteed by assuring property is primarily in the hands of the individual, private, and not government (public), property to secure freedom.

We, Americans, took on a role that no one else in the world had even for a second considered:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights...” Emphasis mine, Unanimous Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776, http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transcript.html

We, the People, the Americans, as Individuals, took on this mantle, knowing that, should we succeed, this nation would be the beacon no other nation is, nor had ever been, on Earth. A beacon of equal opportunity for all who embrace what comes their way, and would beat a path to the door of those who are letting opportunity pass by that would be good for themselves and their community.

We, the People, are those soldiers who died over the 235 years since Our Declaration of Independence established this nation under Feudal Customs known throughout the world. Our Constitution, a well difficult to accomplish task, done for sake of assuring that our Unalienable Rights would be protected by, and not a grant of, nor beholden to, the national government We, the People, establish.

Look at your nation today, and over the last 50 years, with every charity possible given in spoil by government, and, that appears to be solely to destroy the very notion of dignity, of honor and its correlative integrity amongst us. This, while our soldiers go out to fight for the causes aforementioned above, their duty today is, in fact, to fight for the right to subsist, as those once were forced to do under the Soviet Union and its Communist regime.

However, our subsistence is worse, as we acclimate passing through the legions of bureaucracy, and being faced by a corrupt and expensive legal system, we give up and acquiesce, falling in peonage to the norm of tyranny under Executive despotic rule with its erroneous belief in “Our Democracy.” We fight to assure our benefits from government are not taken away, irrespective of the fact that we're paying for them ourselves, in a negative fractional amount to the whole that we are fighting to assure government give us, and, that we can never positively pay the full amount without losing every dime we work for. We've accepted the slavery being thrust upon us with open arms in exchange for a privilege labeled “benefit” that must decline with the greater growth of government done under the guise of controlling costs to only continue the exponential increase in expense – we're handing government rein over all that assures our liberty!

We slept while the national government of our making, meant to be bound to us for its existence has reversed the roles, and, at the same time, slept through the national government ignoring, and setting aside, all balance as the States too are beholden to debt currency, granted from Washington by the national government to continue to function. This, of course is the replacement for the States’ taking advantage of their own resources, to foster, and thrive by their own wealth.

Welcome to the American Age Of Oppression under Communist rule and authority that, once again in typical Progressive fashion, mocks us… mocks those of us who died for the sake of Freedom, of the individual and their Unalienable Rights.

How do we celebrate this day without tears of absolute loathing and shame for ourselves and how we've let the ideal that this nation was founded upon, crumble under the weight of our own desire for sloth and gluttony? How can we remember these people without recognizing that our lack of will to work together, for sake of freedom and saving our nation from the “fundamental transformation” that makes all they fought for disappear from the face of the Earth, is assuring those of us who died in these wars over the history of this nation died in vane?

The settlement of differences to which the germane Constitution evinces, assuring a balance of powers and denial of all interference with the Will of the People by government, requires our attention in like manner to the attention given by Our Founders. And should we fail, out of our own vanity, to stand behind their intentions for an instrument written while the jealousy of freedom from tyranny was fresh in their minds, then, while we salute with pride, and a tear on our cheek, let us realize the days of such celebration and a history supporting out emotions will be coming to an end, as we continue to let the nation they died and fought for slip away, along with all semblance of the idea of the Free, and Independent, Individual.


Thank you for reading,

Christmas-2010

24 Dec : 16:57 Category: American Holidays



Merry Christmas By God's Glory,
Thank You One And All


To everyone, please have a warm, traditional, and joyous holiday, remember the best of the year and those around you. Let the Love of Christ guide you to understanding all that's been frustrating, or let it be forgotten as there is much, much more in the meaning of your life that God only needs you to take a moment to be still, know and appreciate His hand in guidance. Through remembrance of Jesus Christ at Christmas is your moment to take notice of all the good you've done for others this year, for God's Glory, and often without realizing how He has led you.

Of all the gifts we could hope for, the greatest gift is His Love, His Joy, and knowing that God is there for us, that through Christ all is possible, that in remembering this we reclaim all that God has endowed us with, grounding ourselves in the principles of Individual Liberty that Jesus showed with every step He took.

When a group would want Him to act this or that way, Jesus would act as He knew would best serve His Father, Our Father. And when the group questioned Him, He explained that their being riddled shows the message wasn't for them, giving them a chance to recognize that individuality is what is intended, and not some collective structure to which everyone was accustomed, that God was not to come down and ascend a throne whose principles were those of men of the past, and upon which more of the same would always be built, but that God's Kingdom is one of Individual Liberty, a Kingdom where we choose God, and are not drafted as though a spoil of war.

Never forget when Peter tried to dominate Jesus' Path, to stand in the way of the Will of God, as Christ is to be in the fulfillment of our purpose, to exist for the Glory of God, and nothing less. Jesus told Peter “behind me satan,” the message being, behind me for you are being adversarial to God, it is by His Will I enter and shall be crucified, a Will I have accepted, a Will I know must be carried out for the Glory of God, and you have no authority to interfere with my Individual Liberty to follow God.

Many may see these things in a variety of ways, yet, it remains a significant certainty that our uniqueness of fingerprint, of facial structure, of DNA, of eye color, and facet after facet of our physical make-up, to be as unique as the snowflakes, is a certain demonstration by God of our individuality being paramount. That as we come to Him there is a necessity this is an individual acceptance, and returned with the simple knowledge we live for the Glory of God, as His companion who loved our God, who has been given dominion over this Earth to assure there will never be a time when God is without such a companion.

Thank you Jesus, for all You've suffered on our behalf, for all You've done for us to assure Salvation is available to us. May the first steps You took in securing God's children to be God's Companion, not be lost by those who've abandoned their relationship to God, to not even know their satanic ways, as we who hold fast to You, Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and shall never forget all You've done for ourselves, our ancestors, and our future… that you are the Glory of America from inception, our purpose to fulfill what only sentient free people can: living for the Glory and Love of God by our act and deed to assure freedom by individual liberty, that it never ceases to exist on the face of the Earth, and that your Glory and our love for you is the treasure of our purpose that we find in the course of our daily lives.

God's promise cannot ever be less, and know, please, that all of this is to thank God through Christ for all He's done in my life, and in particular this day to thank God for my author friend, A. Dru Kristenev, who God made sure I had the pleasure of knowing, a person who has made their every effort to assist me in this Journey, as a friend, mentor, and Minister who saved me from the worst of myself at times over these decades we've known each other. Jesus did for us what we cannot do for ourselves, something A. Dru Kristenev has done for me and many others, to which I feel compelled to recognize their being as Christlike as possible in the Glory of God as a statement of the true Spirit of Christmas as a lifetime of service and love in God's Will.

I Pray that we all find our way, and have those in our path to help us get there, for even Peter's actions were of God's Will to help Jesus affirm His Conviction to God's Path once more, at the gateway to the beginning of the Salvation of God's Companion, mankind.

Never underestimate the power of God, particularly after He gave us His only Son as testament to us of how we save ourselves, to remind us “we're in the world but not of it.”


By the Love of God, and in His Glory, Merry Christmas,


Toddy Littman


P.S. Been down with a cold that seems to linger, the Spirit of this time of year seeming not as connected so far. Usually it'd be December 24th and I'd be moved, sending what I have written off for a little last minute editorial review by my author friend, A. Dru Kristenev. This year is different and I hope you'll pardon this earlier Christmas message. God Bless you all!

Simple-Thanksgiving-2010

25 Nov : 18:22 Category: American Holidays


A Simple Thanksgiving Message



As Thanksgiving approaches with a turkey now in the oven, we want to wish you all a wonderful day of thankful celebration.


Great thanks to God for whose glory we live our lives. We Pray that He will continue to Bless the United States of America, the only nation on earth whose people declared their destiny in Sovereignty under God on July 4th 1776, whose ancestors, the Pilgrims, had the great accident of discovering capitalism and the birth of an entirely new world order, an order void of feudal tenures, and subject servitude was discarded in exchange for individual Liberty-Responsibility.

Today is a day to start an exceptionally good habit. The Soldiers are to be commended and thanked daily for their service, their courage, and exceptional capability to achieve their objectives, often without being acknowledged at all except maybe by their own. Thanksgiving is a great day to begin saying thank you to every soldier you meet. Our debt to them is one that cannot be repaid, and is exactly why they should hear a thank you from one of us every single day, one they can share with those of their family who sacrificed also.

When we celebrate this day with family, friends, and other Americans throughout our nation and the world, we're a testament to the relevance of this history, the vibrant character of America is carried throughout this day amongst us in our showing thanks, gratitude, and appreciation. What we do today, how we are to each other in remembrance of those who began the settlement of what would become our precious America, is our reclaiming their Spirit, reclaiming their reasons for coming here, recognizing their hopes and their dreams of freedom remain our own, to assure these for ourselves and future generations. We are also embracing the outcome of their coming here and being on their own: The establishment of America, a Nation Of Individual Liberty, where sovereignty is a matter of unalienable rights from God in every individual.


Our nation's founding is the outcome of a people oppressed long before they arrived—the reason for their Dutch attire being that only the Dutch would harbor them, they lived there for a short time before coming to America—a people who understood all too well that their relationship with God is no one else's business. And for all the mystery that accompanies notions of God, this moment of God's Hand directing the course of mankind is rather obvious.


An oppressed people in feudal subject-servitude by fief, people who were oppressed in every way, and eventually, once the Monarch had exhausted all means of control and things to tax in the realm of the temporal, to be oppressed in their sincerely held religious beliefs as a people as the realm of the spiritual is sought as a possession by the Monarch in directing how one is Faithful.


Something we've begun to see in our lifetime by the denial of symbols of Faith, to which is promoted the legally recognized religion of Atheism, is what was endured by our nation's first settlers. Government telling people what there beliefs can and will be, and tell them they shall be subject to the prescribed punishment for failure to believe as government has told them to, to act in a way that demonstrates their beliefs are held secondary to Government's dictates.


The oppressive character of this was exacerbated for the Pilgrims by further explanation, that, according to government, only by believing as told will a person be seen by God as Faithful, that anything else makes them a non-believer and God will punish them. Today it is obvious this was merely a feudal government justifying their actions by purporting a knowledge in certainty of the mind of God, when a mere mortal or group of them who has run out of things to control and tax and impose fines for violation of is all that is at hand, and it is this which is a direct invocation of God's Will, an attack on His relationship with His Creation, each and every single one of us.


His message, that tap on the shoulder, happens every day each of us, often we don't even notice because His respect for individual liberty, for His Creation, is of paramount necessity to the authority of God's Omniscience, Omnipotence, and Omnipresence. But this tap needs no assistance from men seeking to exploit God for their own designs.


When you consider the road of oppressive rule, with its echos against “witches,” and the continuance of slavery, to eventually come to Truths to be self-evident of July 4th 1776, resulting in a worldwide knowledge of the end of legal and commercial acceptance of subject servitude and slavery being imposed by anyone, ending a practice of feudal entitlement based on exploitation of religion, a practice older than, and well demonstrated by, the Hammurabi Code, http://www.wsu.edu/~dee/MESO/CODE.HTM, you come to one conclusion:

Our entire freedom based on those Truths to be self-evident, that affected the entire world, to have achieve some type of representative government in less than 100 years in every nation exercising any claims of authority and power in the world is an event that could only happen by God's Will invoked merely by keeping Our Faith.


I submit to you that of all to give thanks for, the means of God's Hand through the Faithful is most important. With a longevity of infinity, God through Christ is a consistent certainty that we can have Faith in.


And A. Dru Kristenev, the author of the books we have available at our org website, and I a mere researcher of some of the information you'll read in those books, must thank all of you for coming to our organization website, http://changingwind.org. We're a simple Church whose interest has been to share what information we can with others in hopes of it finding its way to all who value their Freedom by Faith in Christ.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

American Soldier-Veterans Day 2010

11 Nov : 16:42 Category: American Holidays


A Tribute To The American Messenger
of Individual Liberty, The American Soldier


The American soldier is different from any other soldier in the world because they are American.


American soldiers fight for something, Individual Liberty, and they fight as those who have enjoyed and appreciate their Liberty as Sacred.


Prior to America the soldier had always been solely a tool of conquest and confiscation, even in early colonization as a tribe of its own who migrated here from elsewhere, the colonial soldier was a tool of conquest and confiscation, yet after the founding of the nation, our American soldier began the transition to fighting solely for Individual Liberty.


As we won this tribal battle the American soldier became a soldier who could be shipped to a foreign country, fight, and come home. America sought no land, was not in a league of conquest, and confiscated nothing for it's effort as our American soldier was sent out to assure Individual Liberty.


Time after time our soldiers were sent out to fight for individual liberty, to help bring an end to imperialist conflicts, as in World War I, or to save the world from the heinous evil that would be an absolute end to Individual Liberty, as in World War II.


Our nation's soldiers often the last to arrive, but the important factor, the most considerable factor to our enemies as they would turn the tide because they fight for Individual Liberty and not merely against an enemy.


With Korea we drove back the aggressive communist North, for sake of the Individual Liberty of those in the South and a prior treaty that we had hoped would arrive at a unified Korea, but instead the North devised a communist government of its own while the Russian soldiers were acting as peace keepers, and Korea a torn country to this day, half it's nation never knowing the meaning or being able to value Individual Liberty.


Vietnam was a means of telling China, you will not expand without resistance, and again it was a battle against a communist regime. Our Congress and Presidents attempted to micro-manage the war from Washington, and failed miserably. But our soldiers fought valiantly for a nation to keep its freedom and a people to keep their Individual Liberty. Mistakes were made as they are in any war, but the ultimate goal of signaling China they will not expand this way was achieved, and it is our soldiers who sent that message. Though the North took Vietnam, China did not take the entire of Southeast Asia as it easily could have if we hadn't taken action. We lost almost 60,000 of our finest in this conflict, but be sure our enemies lost millions, and it is this heart of our soldier, and the beat of Individual Liberty that brought China's expansion to go no further than Vietnam.


Iraq, in the end, is an American War for this very same principle. Where WMD's escaped America's capture, the clarity of Saddam Hussein killing 5000 of his own people a day with nerve gas, and the knowledge that 400,000 Turks were killed by Saddam--400,000 of his own citizens in the North--demonstrates again the very reason our soldiers fight, our goals and objectives achieved for the sake of Individual Liberty, to renounce by force those acts and deeds of force in oppression, that we ourselves threw off in 1776.


Our soldier continues to fight in Afghanistan, even though in the midst of a world that finds Individual Liberty a threat to all they've ever been taught, and some find it a threat to their power. Yet nothing will deter our American soldier from fighting for Individual Liberty, to assure the knowledge and meaning of freedom is spread.


We must always remember our unanimous Declaration of Independence says “All men are created equal, they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” This is an American principle of people, nation, and government that is true for all mankind, and our soldier is the voice of our hope that the entire race appreciate Individual Liberty to stand up against oppression, tyranny, and all that would trespass on the sacred right of anyone to be left alone in their thoughts, ambition, and designs for their own life—Freedom!


May God always Bless our American soldier, an American Sovereign of Liberty, whose fight is always for this simple, yet to this day being fought for, principle, and fighting as strongly as when we won our Independence, our Individual Liberty of freedom of each to be their own by their own terms.


Thank you American soldier!



And thank you for reading,

911 Denial-Conspiracy Poison

11 Sep : 04:13 Category: American Holidays


911 Denial & Conspiracy’s Poison


Remembering that day only teaches me how easily I had been fooled by my own denial.

Remembering the discussions I had with others in disbelief, thinking this had to be an inside job.

Only to some months later realize how wrong I was for the sake of my disbelief and nothing more.

Every anniversary I meet with great regret from the fact that I didn’t recognize what really happened on September 11th, 2001, that terrorists, genuine terrorists who hate America, which I couldn’t fathom at the time, had attacked my country, the country that has, and remains through her people, to mean more to freedom than anything else ever has, save Jesus Christ.

Tears in my eyes as I realize fully my loathsome regret because my foolish denial further denied my showing deserved respect to the heroes of flight 93, as well as not valuing the genuine loss of life by murder. I was treating these people akin to how these Islamic Extremists view us all as infidels by being so lost in disbelief I was unable to recognize this genuine terrorist attack on the United States of America for exactly what it is. Shame is my companion on 911, though I made effort after effort over the years to try to make amends for my initial foolishness. Nothing can make up for being so caught up, as I was at that time, in finding someone to blame, finding the conspiracy behind door number 6,424, and so lost in my zeal to prove my point, completely unaware of the disservice to the dead, injured, and survivors that I was carrying out by my actions and looking for reason to justify my denial.

So today all I have is sadness at my own audacity at the time, and a persistent belated mourning over what happened on that day. And let us not forget to celebrate what we found again, at least for a short time, the binding force of our people, America United, Our Spirit, that always rises to the top in our people at the instant of need.

Please, I urge you, do appreciate this day for what it meant in loss, and what it meant in America finding her Spirit again. In light of the state of our country today it is important to the memory of those of 911 that we find that binding force once more, and this time keep it.

This binding to each other for the sake of America is the ultimate tribute to those who died that day and those who fought in wars to assure that the potential opportunity for even more heinous acts against America is miniscule, as well as anyone effected by the heinous act of murder in the name of Allah that happened on September 11th, 2001.

To those who were effected that day, by death, injury or otherwise, in Spirit and here on Earth, in Prayer this night I tell God once more how truly sorry I am for your loss, asking for His Forgiveness, and voicing the hope that these anniversaries give you more strength in moving on, always remembering but without the sadness, any bitterness, questioning why, or blaming in denial, as it is these things that thwart what binds us as Americans which is exactly what the terrorists intended.

America Established by Her People

03 Jul : 20:44 Category: American Holidays


God’s Will That America Be Established By Her People



Many see the Constitution as the document that established America, calling these signers of the Constitution our Founders.

The record is that the only unanimous instrument of this nation, is the Declaration of Independence, the instrument that acknowledges and proclaims God’s Will is Supreme, and is written into the heart of everyone.

The Declaration of Independence is the ending of serfdom and the beginning of the end of all slavery, the beginning of the recognition of sentience amongst all of mankind, and the end of a class based, caste structured, centralized power, and racist history dominated by feudal empires who used God as a tool of their power.

Only by the Declaration of Independence is God seen as the tool to empower the people of a nation, over and above government, as the creator of government as their tool, their servant, as the slave to all people of all degrees of material possession.

We’ve forgotten, if ever we were educated of, the value of our moral authority by our Divine Given rights, Divine Given capacity, sentience, and means of evaluation, of discernment. This is the meaning, spirit, purpose, and intention of the Declaration, that God’s Will is the heart of what is declared in being independent. Individual liberty as proclaimed by our Declaration is a statement of God’s Will, of the coming to fruition of God's design for Man.

America is the time, is the state and meaning, of when a people revere God, never seeking to be His equal, a people who always recognize His Rule, and thank Him for all He and His Son have done in loving our often misguided race of Man.


Behold the regular insistence of Progressivism that we should ignore these words:

“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states.
.
.
.
“We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.” (Emphasis Mine.)--July 4th, 1776, unanimous Declaration of Independence.


A pledge of all that is valuable, all that is sacred, and a certain statement of the signers in agreement with Patrick Henry, “give me liberty or give me death.” Are you ready to pledge everything for freedom? Are you ready to believe in your Faith, your Freedom, your Country, and the Divine source of all of these, so strongly that you know God is with you and victory shall be ours by God’s Will, enough to bargain all you have and to know this Freedom shall never cease to exist?

Here are the names of the men who truly are America’s Founders by this glorious communication of the sacredness of each of our lives value by God and his Divine Gift that places us above government, above the notion of a central power body politic operating in its own self interest, and presuming itself of such greater knowledge and capacity than we each have as given by God, assuming their idea of “governemnt” to be above God in deciding, controlling, and directing, only to achieve the means to take from our livelihood for government’s own designs, sold as government’s better knowledge of what is best for us than we could ever know ourselves:


New Hampshire: Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Matthew Thornton

Massachusetts: John Hancock, Samual Adams, John Adams, Robert Treat Paine, Elbridge Gerry

Rhode Island: Stephen Hopkins, William Ellery

Connecticut: Roger Sherman, Samuel Huntington, William Williams, Oliver Wolcott

New York: William Floyd, Philip Livingston, Francis Lewis, Lewis Morris

New Jersey: Richard Stockton, John Witherspoon, Francis Hopkinson, John Hart, Abraham Clark

Pennsylvania: Robert Morris, Benjamin Rush, Benjamin Franklin, John Morton, George Clymer, James Smith, George Taylor, James Wilson, George Ross

Delaware: Caesar Rodney, George Read, Thomas McKean

Maryland: Samuel Chase, William Paca, Thomas Stone, Charles Carroll of Carrollton

Virginia: George Wythe, Richard Henry Lee, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas Nelson, Jr., Francis Lightfoot Lee, Carter Braxton

North Carolina: William Hooper, Joseph Hewes, John Penn

South Carolina: Edward Rutledge, Thomas Heyward, Jr., Thomas Lynch, Jr., Arthur Middleton

Georgia: Button Gwinnett, Lyman Hall, George Walton


These men are the reason we celebrate 4th of July, and have been able to continue to do so for all these 234 years.

Renew your Faith, reclaim your Divine Rights, your Sovereign Authority bestowed upon you by God, be the leader of your nation and help its people know their Divinely Given Role is to be above any government that lays burden or any claim upon your Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness, be it upon you, before you, or in any ways as a dictate or debt, for only through your Faith does your Divine Superiority over government exist.

Raise your glass this 4th of July in celebration to God, these men, and all who have died in the name of freedom, in the name of this principle that Man is “endowed with certain unalienable rights from his Creator,” and thereby is always over government, an institution created to be our footstool.

Government is to only be at our beck and call to do our bidding, using its “just powers” to effectuate our Sovereign Will and never as our Master, for God is our only Master.

American Pride-Memoral Day 2010

29 May : 01:29 Category: American Holidays


American Pride in Freedom



The soldier, a world history rife with abuses recorded in acts of heroism at the demise of others, done for the sake of a ruler’s arrogant desire of control and power, of land and wealth.

The soldiers who fought in biblical wars, fought for the Will of God, win or lose, their purpose to fulfill what is meant to happen.

Time after time battles brought in the name of God, or someone claiming a deity, as a means of revolution, rebellion, and any other method to undermine whatever forms of equilibrium and civility man had gained. Often a group of people lived without any rulers, but remained together as a tribe, their land never threatened, and never knowing themselves as primitive in relation to others, as they had no knowledge of others, their rule was self-government, but in the eyes of those who want power, these are the uncivilized, and need to be ruled.

Races and Tribes who organized, or were organized, by one of their race or tribe who wanted to be leader, were routinely led by another in succession, generation after generation, to the point each generation’s leader found that an act of great manipulation of the people in manpower was necessary just to keep the people’s respect and submission. The Egyptians demonstrate this necessity for something significant to occur under a ruler. Production of great achievement was a secondary concern, and yet the answer to times where war and conquering a foe were not available to rally the people to carry out the Pharaoh’s will as soldiers of war. Rome too carried on this way Caesar after Caesar, until there was nothing that wasn’t influenced by Rome, and self-government, self-determination and any level of individual freedom, no longer existed. The civility of Rome, the collective freedom of the tribe, was supplanted over and above the freedoms of the individual in every instance. Slavery, in one form or another, was the common product of these grown governments and their armies of oppressive central government, the soldier a tool of propaganda and order, and for no other purpose but the will of the leader in the moment.

The whole point of the soldier in accomplishing death was in order for their lord or leader to gain unfettered and unchallenged access to the land of these tribes, these people who stood in the way of their lord’s importance, be it actual or delusional whims of self proclamation.

This is an infinitesimally small summary history of the soldier, a history of greater than 4,000 years, and likely deriving from the beginning of tribal existence, a summary so easy to make because the rulers were always pursuing the same goals of conquest, confiscation, pillaging and oppressive suffering. This imposition on the people in exchange for the ruler’s ability to organize and rule, in the name of the ruler proving their power, authority, and right of rule over those paying for the ruler’s way of life. A wonderful circle of arrogant abuse throughout history imposed solely by central government over man.

This is a history that was broken over God’s knee with the founding of America. America where soldiers fight for the freedom of men, to enjoy their individual liberty, to appreciate their lives without the shadow of government and those who seek power alone as their self-indulgent reward for oppressing those who think otherwise, who want to be free. The weak or the strong, of all colors, races, and creeds, of every religion, whose willingness to be of America for what she stands for, are all free by merely holding that very willing desire. Of all that America has given to the world, our soldiers, our blood and treasure, have been the greatest gift to mankind, as ours fight the tyrants, and carry on Ben Franklin’s motto affixed to Thomas Jefferson’s Seal “Rebellion against Tyrants is obedience to God.” Fighting for the freedom of people, for their right of self-determination, self-government, to help people in all nations of the world know that they too have the unalienable right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, to help them walk on their own in the light of God, the life of their Creator who grants them these divine powers above all government, that is what America’s Soldiers are for! This is America’s will for all the World and their people, to achieve their liberty by their right and with God’s help, to know We The People of America, whose generations have been and continue to be our soldier’s might, place in this one heart of Faith to stand with all People, in every nation, as our Brothers and Sisters in arms against oppression, against government denial of their God-given unalienable Rights.

May God Bless America, our soldiers and all of God’s Children whosoever need our blood and treasure to fight for them and what God gave them, whether they, or their leaders, believe it or not.
