    DONALD J. TRUMP AMERICA FIRST……

    Apr 27, 2016 – America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration

    Donald J. Trump Foreign Policy Speech – Donald Trump

    My foreign policy will always put the interests of the American people, and American security, above all else.

    THAT WILL BE THE FOUNDATION OF EVERY DECISION THAT I WILL MAKE.

    UNDER A TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, NO AMERICAN CITIZEN WILL EVER AGAIN FEEL THAT THEIR NEEDS COME SECOND TO THE CITIZENS OF FOREIGN COUNTRIES.

    Americans must know that we are putting the AMERICAN PEOPLE FIRST again. On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy – the jobs, incomes and security of the American worker will always be my first priority.

    No country has ever prospered that failed to put its own interests first. Both our friends and enemies put their countries above ours and we, while being fair to them, must do the same.

    WE WILL NO LONGER SURRENDER THIS COUNTRY, OR ITS PEOPLE, TO THE FALSE SONG OF GLOBALISM.

    The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down, and will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs.

    ——————————————————————————–

    snippet

    The struggle against radical Islam also takes place in our homeland. There are scores of recent migrants inside our borders charged with terrorism. For every case known to the public, there are dozens more.

    We must stop importing extremism through senseless immigration policies.

    A pause for reassessment will help us to prevent the next San Bernardino or worse — all you have to do is look at the World Trade Center and September 11th.

    And then there’s ISIS. I have a simple message for them. Their days are numbered. I won’t tell them where and I won’t tell them how. We must as, a nation, be more unpredictable. But they’re going to be gone. And soon.

    Apr 27, 2016 – America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration. But to chart our path forward, we must first briefly look back. We have …

    —————————————————————————

    Thank you for the opportunity to speak to you, and thank you to the Center for the National Interest for honoring me with this invitation.

    I would like to talk today about how to develop a new foreign policy direction for our country – one that replaces randomness with purpose, ideology with strategy, and chaos with peace.

    It is time to shake the rust off of America’s foreign policy. It’s time to invite new voices and new visions into the fold.

    The direction I will outline today will also return us to a timeless principle. My foreign policy will always put the interests of the American people, and American security, above all else. That will be the foundation of every decision that I will make.

    America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration.

    But to chart our path forward, we must first briefly look back.

    We have a lot to be proud of. In the 1940s we saved the world. The Greatest Generation beat back the Nazis and the Japanese Imperialists.

    Then we saved the world again, this time from totalitarian Communism. The Cold War lasted for decades, but we won.

    Democrats and Republicans working together got Mr. Gorbachev to heed the words of President Reagan when he said: “tear down this wall.”

    History will not forget what we did.

    Unfortunately, after the Cold War, our foreign policy veered badly off course. We failed to develop a new vision for a new time. In fact, as time went on, our foreign policy began to make less and less sense.

    Logic was replaced with foolishness and arrogance, and this led to one foreign policy disaster after another.

    We went from mistakes in Iraq to Egypt to Libya, to President Obama’s line in the sand in Syria. Each of these actions have helped to throw the region into chaos, and gave ISIS the space it needs to grow and prosper.

    It all began with the dangerous idea that we could make Western democracies out of countries that had no experience or interest in becoming a Western Democracy.

    We tore up what institutions they had and then were surprised at what we unleashed. Civil war, religious fanaticism; thousands of American lives, and many trillions of dollars, were lost as a result. The vacuum was created that ISIS would fill. Iran, too, would rush in and fill the void, much to their unjust enrichment.

    Our foreign policy is a complete and total disaster.

    No vision, no purpose, no direction, no strategy.

    Today, I want to identify five main weaknesses in our foreign policy.

    First, Our Resources Are Overextended

    President Obama has weakened our military by weakening our economy. He’s crippled us with wasteful spending, massive debt, low growth, a huge trade deficit and open borders.

    Our manufacturing trade deficit with the world is now approaching $1 trillion a year. We’re rebuilding other countries while weakening our own.

    Ending the theft of American jobs will give us the resources we need to rebuild our military and regain our financial independence and strength.

    I am the only person running for the Presidency who understands this problem and knows how to fix it.

    Secondly, our allies are not paying their fair share.

    Our allies must contribute toward the financial, political and human costs of our tremendous security burden. But many of them are simply not doing so. They look at the United States as weak and forgiving and feel no obligation to honor their agreements with us.

    In NATO, for instance, only 4 of 28 other member countries, besides America, are spending the minimum required 2% of GDP on defense.

    We have spent trillions of dollars over time – on planes, missiles, ships, equipment – building up our military to provide a strong defense for Europe and Asia. The countries we are defending must pay for the cost of this defense – and, if not, the U.S. must be prepared to let these countries defend themselves.

    The whole world will be safer if our allies do their part to support our common defense and security.

    A Trump Administration will lead a free world that is properly armed and funded.

    Thirdly, our friends are beginning to think they can’t depend on us.

    We’ve had a president who dislikes our friends and bows to our enemies.

    He negotiated a disastrous deal with Iran, and then we watched them ignore its terms, even before the ink was dry.

    Iran cannot be allowed to have a nuclear weapon and, under a Trump Administration, will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.

    All of this without even mentioning the humiliation of the United States with Iran’s treatment of our ten captured sailors.

    In negotiation, you must be willing to walk. The Iran deal, like so many of our worst agreements, is the result of not being willing to leave the table. When the other side knows you’re not going to walk, it becomes absolutely impossible to win.

    At the same time, your friends need to know that you will stick by the agreements that you have with them.

    President Obama gutted our missile defense program, then abandoned our missile defense plans with Poland and the Czech Republic.

    He supported the ouster of a friendly regime in Egypt that had a longstanding peace treaty with Israel – and then helped bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power in its place.

    Israel, our great friend and the one true Democracy in the Middle East, has been snubbed and criticized by an Administration that lacks moral clarity. Just a few days ago, Vice President Biden again criticized Israel – a force for justice and peace – for acting as an impediment to peace in the region.

    President Obama has not been a friend to Israel. He has treated Iran with tender love and care and made it a great power in the Middle East – all at the expense of Israel, our other allies in the region and, critically, the United States.

    We’ve picked fights with our oldest friends, and now they’re starting to look elsewhere for help.

    Fourth, our rivals no longer respect us.

    In fact, they are just as confused as our allies, but an even bigger problem is that they don’t take us seriously any more.

    When President Obama landed in Cuba on Air Force One, no leader was there to meet or greet him – perhaps an incident without precedent in the long and prestigious history of Air Force One.

    Then, amazingly, the same thing happened in Saudi Arabia — it’s called no respect.

    Do you remember when the President made a long and expensive trip to Copenhagen, Denmark to get the Olympics for our country, and, after this unprecedented effort, it was announced that the United States came in fourth place?

    He should have known the result before making such an embarrassing commitment.

    The list of humiliations goes on and on.

    President Obama watches helplessly as North Korea increases its aggression and expands even further with its nuclear reach.

    Our president has allowed China to continue its economic assault on American jobs and wealth, refusing to enforce trade rules – or apply the leverage on China necessary to rein in North Korea.

    He has even allowed China to steal government secrets with cyber attacks and engage in industrial espionage against the United States and its companies.

    We’ve let our rivals and challengers think they can get away with anything.

    If President Obama’s goal had been to weaken America, he could not have done a better job.

    Finally, America no longer has a clear understanding of our foreign policy goals.

    Since the end of the Cold War and the break-up of the Soviet Union, we’ve lacked a coherent foreign policy.

    One day we’re bombing Libya and getting rid of a dictator to foster democracy for civilians, the next day we are watching the same civilians suffer while that country falls apart.

    We’re a humanitarian nation. But the legacy of the Obama-Clinton interventions will be weakness, confusion, and disarray.

    We have made the Middle East more unstable and chaotic than ever before.

    We left Christians subject to intense persecution and even genocide.

    Our actions in Iraq, Libya and Syria have helped unleash ISIS.

    And we’re in a war against radical Islam, but President Obama won’t even name the enemy!

    Hillary Clinton also refuses to say the words “radical Islam,” even as she pushes for a massive increase in refugees.

    After Secretary Clinton’s failed intervention in Libya, Islamic terrorists in Benghazi took down our consulate and killed our ambassador and three brave Americans. Then, instead of taking charge that night, Hillary Clinton decided to go home and sleep! Incredible.

    Clinton blames it all on a video, an excuse that was a total lie. Our Ambassador was murdered and our Secretary of State misled the nation – and by the way, she was not awake to take that call at 3 o’clock in the morning.

    And now ISIS is making millions of dollars a week selling Libyan oil.

    This will change when I am president.

    To all our friends and allies, I say America is going to be strong again. America is going to be a reliable friend and ally again.

    We’re going to finally have a coherent foreign policy based upon American interests, and the shared interests of our allies.

    We are getting out of the nation-building business, and instead focusing on creating stability in the world.

    Our moments of greatest strength came when politics ended at the water’s edge.

    We need a new, rational American foreign policy, informed by the best minds and supported by both parties, as well as by our close allies.

    This is how we won the Cold War, and it’s how we will win our new and future struggles.

    First, we need a long-term plan to halt the spread and reach of radical Islam.

    Containing the spread of radical Islam must be a major foreign policy goal of the United States.

    Events may require the use of military force. But it’s also a philosophical struggle, like our long struggle in the Cold War.

    In this we’re going to be working very closely with our allies in the Muslim world, all of which are at risk from radical Islamic violence.

    We should work together with any nation in the region that is threatened by the rise of radical Islam. But this has to be a two-way street – they must also be good to us and remember us and all we are doing for them.

    The struggle against radical Islam also takes place in our homeland. There are scores of recent migrants inside our borders charged with terrorism. For every case known to the public, there are dozens more.

    We must stop importing extremism through senseless immigration policies.

    A pause for reassessment will help us to prevent the next San Bernardino or worse — all you have to do is look at the World Trade Center and September 11th.

    And then there’s ISIS. I have a simple message for them. Their days are numbered. I won’t tell them where and I won’t tell them how. We must as, a nation, be more unpredictable. But they’re going to be gone. And soon.

    Secondly, we have to rebuild our military and our economy.

    The Russians and Chinese have rapidly expanded their military capability, but look what’s happened to us!

    Our nuclear weapons arsenal – our ultimate deterrent – has been allowed to atrophy and is desperately in need of modernization and renewal.

    Our active duty armed forces have shrunk from 2 million in 1991 to about 1.3 million today.

    The Navy has shrunk from over 500 ships to 272 ships during that time.

    The Air Force is about 1/3 smaller than 1991. Pilots are flying B-52s in combat missions today which are older than most people in this room.

    And what are we doing about this? President Obama has proposed a 2017 defense budget that, in real dollars, cuts nearly 25% from what we were spending in 2011.

    Our military is depleted, and we’re asking our generals and military leaders to worry about global warming.

    We will spend what we need to rebuild our military. It is the cheapest investment we can make. We will develop, build and purchase the best equipment known to mankind. Our military dominance must be unquestioned.

    But we will look for savings and spend our money wisely. In this time of mounting debt, not one dollar can be wasted.

    We are also going to have to change our trade, immigration and economic policies to make our economy strong again – and to put Americans first again. This will ensure that our own workers, right here in America, get the jobs and higher pay that will grow our tax revenue and increase our economic might as a nation.

    We need to think smarter about areas where our technological superiority gives us an edge. This includes 3-D printing, artificial intelligence and cyberwarfare.

    A great country also takes care of its warriors. Our commitment to them is absolute. A Trump Administration will give our service men and women the best equipment and support in the world when they serve, and the best care in the world when they return as veterans to civilian life.

    Finally, we must develop a foreign policy based on American interests.

    Businesses do not succeed when they lose sight of their core interests and neither do countries.

    Look at what happened in the 1990s. Our embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were attacked and seventeen brave sailors were killed on the USS Cole. And what did we do? It seemed we put more effort into adding China to the World Trade Organization – which has been a disaster for the United States – than into stopping Al Qaeda.

    We even had an opportunity to take out Osama Bin Laden, and didn’t do it. And then, we got hit at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the worst attack on our country in its history.

    Our foreign policy goals must be based on America’s core national security interests, and the following will be my priorities.

    In the Middle East, our goals must be to defeat terrorists and promote regional stability, not radical change. We need to be clear-sighted about the groups that will never be anything other than enemies.

    And we must only be generous to those that prove they are our friends.

    We desire to live peacefully and in friendship with Russia and China. We have serious differences with these two nations, and must regard them with open eyes. But we are not bound to be adversaries. We should seek common ground based on shared interests. Russia, for instance, has also seen the horror of Islamic terrorism.

    I believe an easing of tensions and improved relations with Russia – from a position of strength – is possible. Common sense says this cycle of hostility must end. Some say the Russians won’t be reasonable. I intend to find out. If we can’t make a good deal for America, then we will quickly walk from the table.

    Fixing our relations with China is another important step towards a prosperous century. China respects strength, and by letting them take advantage of us economically, we have lost all of their respect. We have a massive trade deficit with China, a deficit we must find a way, quickly, to balance.

    A strong and smart America is an America that will find a better friend in China. We can both benefit or we can both go our separate ways.

    After I am elected President, I will also call for a summit with our NATO allies, and a separate summit with our Asian allies. In these summits, we will not only discuss a rebalancing of financial commitments, but take a fresh look at how we can adopt new strategies for tackling our common challenges.

    For instance, we will discuss how we can upgrade NATO’s outdated mission and structure – grown out of the Cold War – to confront our shared challenges, including migration and Islamic terrorism.

    I will not hesitate to deploy military force when there is no alternative. But if America fights, it must fight to win. I will never send our finest into battle unless necessary – and will only do so if we have a plan for victory.

    Our goal is peace and prosperity, not war and destruction.

    The best way to achieve those goals is through a disciplined, deliberate and consistent foreign policy.

    With President Obama and Secretary Clinton we’ve had the exact opposite: a reckless, rudderless and aimless foreign policy – one that has blazed a path of destruction in its wake.

    After losing thousands of lives and spending trillions of dollars, we are in far worse shape now in the Middle East than ever before.

    I challenge anyone to explain the strategic foreign policy vision of Obama-Clinton – it has been a complete and total disaster.

    I will also be prepared to deploy America’s economic resources. Financial leverage and sanctions can be very persuasive – but we need to use them selectively and with determination. Our power will be used if others do not play by the rules.

    Our friends and enemies must know that if I draw a line in the sand, I will enforce it.

    However, unlike other candidates for the presidency, war and aggression will not be my first instinct. You cannot have a foreign policy without diplomacy. A superpower understands that caution and restraint are signs of strength.

    Although not in government service, I was totally against the War in Iraq, saying for many years that it would destabilize the Middle East. Sadly, I was correct, and the biggest beneficiary was Iran, who is systematically taking over Iraq and gaining access to their rich oil reserves – something it has wanted to do for decades. And now, to top it all off, we have ISIS.

    My goal is to establish a foreign policy that will endure for several generations.

    That is why I will also look for talented experts with new approaches, and practical ideas, rather than surrounding myself with those who have perfect resumes but very little to brag about except responsibility for a long history of failed policies and continued losses at war.

    Finally, I will work with our allies to reinvigorate Western values and institutions. Instead of trying to spread “universal values” that not everyone shares, we should understand that strengthening and promoting Western civilization and its accomplishments will do more to inspire positive reforms around the world than military interventions.

    These are my goals, as president.

    I will seek a foreign policy that all Americans, whatever their party, can support, and which our friends and allies will respect and welcome.

    The world must know that we do not go abroad in search of enemies, that we are always happy when old enemies become friends, and when old friends become allies.

    To achieve these goals, Americans must have confidence in their country and its leadership again.

    Many Americans must wonder why our politicians seem more interested in defending the borders of foreign countries than their own.

    Americans must know that we are putting the American people first again. On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy – the jobs, incomes and security of the American worker will always be my first priority.

    No country has ever prospered that failed to put its own interests first. Both our friends and enemies put their countries above ours and we, while being fair to them, must do the same.

    We will no longer surrender this country, or its people, to the false song of globalism.

    The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down, and will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs.

    NAFTA, as an example, has been a total disaster for the U.S. and has emptied our states of our manufacturing and our jobs. Never again. Only the reverse will happen. We will keep our jobs and bring in new ones. Their will be consequences for companies that leave the U.S. only to exploit it later.

    Under a Trump Administration, no American citizen will ever again feel that their needs come second to the citizens of foreign countries.

    I will view the world through the clear lens of American interests.

    I will be America’s greatest defender and most loyal champion. We will not apologize for becoming successful again, but will instead embrace the unique heritage that makes us who we are.

    The world is most peaceful, and most prosperous, when America is strongest.

    America will continually play the role of peacemaker.

    We will always help to save lives and, indeed, humanity itself. But to play that role, we must make America strong again.

    We must make America respected again. And we must make America great again.

    If we do that, perhaps this century can be the most peaceful and prosperous the world has ever known. Thank you.

    JEANETTE FINICUM RESPONDS TO OREGON STATE AND FBI INVESTIGATIVE REPORT

    According to the news story from Portland Oregon: “Officials investigating the death of Robert [LaVoy] Finicum are ready to release results” of the fatal shooting “during a Jan. 26 traffic stop while trying to arrest the rancher and others involved in the takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge.”

    NEWS RELEASE
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    Contact: Cherilyn Bacon Eagar
    for the LaVoy Finicum family
    Cell: 801-592-4245
    Email: Cherilyn@CherilynEagar.com

    March 8, 2016, St. George, UT.
    — LaVoy Finicum’s wife Jeanette Finicum released this statement at a news conference in St. George, Utah:
    The news conference held earlier today in Bend, Oregon to release the report of the investigation regarding my husband’s death was to be expected. No surprises. The purpose of that announcement was for state and federal agencies to continue to lay the foundation of their legal case.
    However, they also continue to bring forward selective evidence. As in all such situations there is another side to this story. We will provide a more thorough analysis at a follow up news conference tomorrow and will be taking questions at that time. Meanwhile, we continue to maintain my husband’s innocence.
    According to the news story from Portland Oregon: “Officials investigating the death of Robert [LaVoy] Finicum are ready to release results” of the fatal shooting “during a Jan. 26 traffic stop while trying to arrest the rancher and others involved in the takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge.”
    As a family, along with our lawyers, we deny this statement. This was not a traffic stop. It was an ambush with a roadblock placed on a blind curve along a lonely stretch of highway. I am told that in law enforcement and prosecuting circles this is called a “Deadman’s blockade,” and is designed to allow a “kill stop” which is illegal.
    The news story continues: “The FBI said Finicum was shot after reaching for a gun…”. We reject that statement. The FBI’s aerial video was of poor quality, edited and provided no audio. Our family asserts that he was shot with both hands up, he was not reaching for anything at the time of the first shot. He was walking with his hands in the air, a symbol of surrender. When he reached down to his left hip he was reacting to the pain of having been shot.
    I can hardly believe that a team of qualified law officers could look at the facts in this case and say that no criminal laws were violated.
    How could they have reached this decision in the face of evidence that clearly shows intent to kill my husband?
    We have talked with an independent investigator who has stated that the “video proves a set up assassination.”
    Many people, including my lawyers, have tried to prepare me for this—-“be strong”, “accept this with peace” —–but I don’t think anything could prepare me to accept what is so clearly a finding that challenges the Constitution that my husband died defending.
    I know that under the Constitution the men who shot my husband to death, while he was surrendering, are entitled to due process of law—-but they are not entitled to walk free and not have to face the same legal process that is a barrier to you or to me.
    They shot my husband, they left him lying in the snowbank—no medical assistance, no charges, no arraignment, no preliminary hearing, no indictment, and no trial by a jury, — and should they just walk free? It just is not right.
    The consolation I have is that hundreds of thousands of Americans have seen and know the truth and believe as I do that my husband was murdered “intentionally, deliberately and with malice.”
    My lawyer has assured me that we will seek justice in a different court, under different circumstances—and I look forward to the day when these men do face a jury that is unbiased enough to return a fair verdict.
    After the Finicum funeral, rallies spontaneously began to organize in many states. The organizers counted, possibly as many as 300 rallies took place throughout the country, in every state but Rhode Island.
    It has been asked how this movement got such momentum so quickly. When Americans heard the details of this story and how these American patriots who have no criminal record and who have stood on the same interpretation of the US Constitution as Justice Scalia have been treated, the actions of law enforcement and the FBI have “shock [ed] the conscience.” Our Supreme Court has set as the standard guideline for practices of law enforcement that are unacceptable to our society, as those that “shock the conscience”.
    A Deadman’s blockade with the intent to kill “shocks the conscience.” Shooting to kill with both hand up “shocks the conscience.”
    Violating the 8th Amendment – cruel and unusual punishment – by placing Americans with no criminal records, who are apparently guilty of defending the US Constitution and the overreach of federal authorities, into solitary confinement and then removing their constitutional right to bear arms are two examples of how elected and appointed officials in the court system, legislative bodies and in law enforcement are violating the Constitution they swear to uphold.
    The Supreme Court has referred to solitary confinement as being “violently insane.” The court has recognized that solitary confinement tortures our human brain and diminishes our God given strength to overcome obstacles.
    Solitary confinement is a form of torture that often drives prisoners mad.
    Last year a Supreme Court Justice wrote a concurring opinion that described the history of solitary confinement and said the practice bears a “peculiar mark of infamy” in its ability to shatter the minds and spirits of prisoners.
    Who are we? We are outraged that men and women who have no criminal records and who posed no threat during the protest in Oregon are being treated as mere animals.
    The American people are outraged at this inhumanity, this brutality and barbarism by the courts and law enforcement. It has created a new American awakening from both the Left and the Right. It “shocks our conscience.” And that is why around 300 rallies spontaneously organized in support of my husband’s assassination and these patriots who are being held as political prisoners.
    Again, my lawyer has assured me that we will seek justice in a different court, under different circumstances—
    We will be commenting on the FBI’s and Deschutes County press release tomorrow after we review their findings fully.
    Thank you.

    Bottom line

    ARE YOU ANGRY NOW? ARE YOU VOTING FOR DONALD TRUMP?

    The Silent Majority Defined 1933-1968-2016

    THE “SILENT MAJORITY,” IS A PHRASE WITH A LONG, LONG HISTORY

    IN 2016 THE HISTORY AND ORIGIN OF THE”SILENT MAJORITY” MUST BE DEFINED AND MADE PERFECTLY CLEAR.

    (for those that think it just started 45 years ago)

    ———————————————-
    Defining words on Germany’s SILENT MAJORITY

    “WHEN THEY CAME I DID NOT SPEAK”

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist; Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew; Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me.
    —————————————————————————————-
    DEFINING THE HOLOCAUST

    The Holocaust began in 1933 and ended in 1945 12 years of Antisemitism (also spelled anti-Semitism or anti-semitism) is PREJUDICE AGAINST, HATRED OF, OR DISCRIMINATION AGAINST JEWS AS AN ETHNIC, RELIGIOUS, OR RACIAL GROUP.

    11 million people were killed during the Holocaust (1.1 million children )
    6 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS WERE JEWISH.

    PREJUDICE AGAINST, HATRED OF, OR DISCRIMINATION AGAINST OTHER GROUPS targeted by the Nazis were Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, disabled people, and Roma.

    “WHEN THEY CAME I DID NOT SPEAK” for the record let’s add…

    Then they came for the Jehovah’s Witnesses and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jehovah’s Witnesses – Then they came for the homosexuals and I did not speak out – because I was not a homosexual – Then they came for the disabled people and I did not speak out – because I was not a disabled person – Then they came for Roma and I did not speak out – because I was not a Roma –

    TWO-THIRDS OF JEWISH PEOPLE living in Europe at the time of World War II were killed by ANTISEMITISM …..

    11 million people were killed during the Holocaust (1.1 million children )
    6 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS WERE JEWISH,
    5 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS targeted by the Nazis ,were other groups of people, prejudiced against, hatred of, or discrimination against.

    TODAY Niemöller’s words “ON THE SILENT MAJORITY” have meaning.

    THEY ARE OFTEN ALTERED TO FIT DIFFERING POLITICAL OR SOCIAL AGENDA,

    BUT THEY STAND AS A UNIVERSAL CALL FOR SOCIAL ACTION AND SOLIDARITY AND VIGILANCE IN THE FACE OF OPPRESSION AND INJUSTICE.

    INDEED, IN 2016, IT IS NECESSARY TO INVESTIGATE THE POLITICAL OR DIFFERING SOCIAL AGENDA’S THAT  ARE REFERRED  TO UNDER THE “SILENT MAJORITY”

    NOW THAT WE HAVE ESTABLISHED THE ORIGIN OF THE “SILENT MAJORITY” WE MUST DOCUMENT AND ENLIGHTEN AMERICAN CITIZENS ON  THE SIMILARITIES OF THE USAGE OF THE WORDS “SILENT MAJORITY” IN THE POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS IN NIXON’S 1968 AND TRUMP’S IN 2016.

    ——————————————————————————
    NIXON CAMPAIGNED ON FOREIGN POLICY WAS ALSO A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE ELECTION. Humphrey was saddled with a Democratic foreign policy that led to what appeared to be absolute futility and agony in Vietnam. NIXON PROMISED TO FIND A WAY TO “PEACE WITH HONOR” IN VIETNAM, though Nixon was never entirely clear about how this was to be accomplished.

    2016 TRUMP campaign IS ON FOREIGN POLICY WHICH IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE ELECTION. AMERICA IS CURRENTLY saddled with a Democratic foreign policy that led to the absolute futility FOURTEEN YEARS OF WAR AND CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

  • 2016 Reestablishing Religious Freedom

      2016 Simply a Bill For Reestablishing 1785 Religious Freedom

    The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom began simply as Bill No. 82,

    “A Bill For Establishing Religious Freedom.”adopted in 1785.

    1785 We the General Assembly of Virginia do enact that no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief;

    1785 BUT THAT ALL MEN SHALL BE FREE TO PROFESS, AND BY ARGUMENT TO MAINTAIN, THEIR OPINIONS IN MATTERS OF RELIGION, AND THAT THE SAME SHALL IN NO WISE DIMINISH, ENLARGE, OR AFFECT THEIR CIVIL CAPACITIES.

    ————————————————————————–

     “A 2016 Bill For reestablishing 1785 religious freedom.”

    AH… BUT THAT ALL MEN SHALL BE FREE

    January 2013

    THE BAKERS SAID THEY REFUSED TO MAKE THE CAKE BECAUSE OF THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

    The Oregon bakery owners were forced to pay more than $135,000.00 in damages.

    The Oregonian reported the state has received (TAKEN) a total of $144,000 from the BAKERS

    1785 THAT TO COMPEL A MAN TO FURNISH CONTRIBUTIONS OF MONEY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF OPINIONS WHICH HE DISBELIEVES AND ABHORS, IS SINFUL AND TYRANNICAL

    ————————————————————————————

    THEN…. THE BAKERS WERE SLAPPED WITH A  GAG ORDER THAT PROHIBITED THEM FROM SPEAKING PUBLICLY ABOUT THEIR FAITH, IN A NATIONAL DEBATE OVER RELIGIOUS BELIEFS?

    1785 … UNLESS HE PROFESS OR RENOUNCE THIS OR THAT RELIGIOUS OPINION, IS DEPRIVING HIM INJURIOUSLY OF THOSE PRIVILEGES AND ADVANTAGES TO WHICH, IN COMMON WITH HIS FELLOW CITIZENS, HE HAS A NATURAL RIGHT

    What led to his “cease and desist” order is the key to understanding why it’s accurately called A GAG ORDER THAT PREVENTS THE KLEINS FROM SPEAKING ABOUT THEIR FAITH and their intent to “stay strong” and fight this harassment by the Oregon state government.

    THE BAKERS WERE FINED $135,000.00 DOLLARS AND ALSO SLAPPED WITH A GAG ORDER THAT PROHIBITED THEM FROM SPEAKING PUBLICLY ABOUT THEIR REFUSAL TO PARTICIPATE IN OR BAKE WEDDING CAKES FOR SAME-SEX MARRIAGES.

    AH… BUT THAT ALL MEN SHALL BE FREE

    Tyler Smith, an attorney representing the BAKERS, told The Oregonian that his clients have not abandoned their appeal of Avakian’s order.

    Bill No. 82 for Established Religious Freedom was adopted in 1785.

    1785  BUT THAT ALL MEN SHALL BE FREE TO PROFESS, AND BY ARGUMENT TO MAINTAIN, THEIR OPINIONS IN MATTERS OF RELIGION, AND THAT THE SAME SHALL IN NO WISE DIMINISH, ENLARGE, OR AFFECT THEIR CIVIL CAPACITIES.

    1785 THAT ALL ATTEMPTS TO INFLUENCE IT BY TEMPORAL PUNISHMENTS, OR BURTHENS, OR BY CIVIL INCAPACITATIONS, TEND ONLY TO BEGET HABITS OF HYPOCRISY AND MEANNESS,

    1785 WHICH AT ONCE DESTROYS ALL RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, BECAUSE HE BEING OF COURSE JUDGE OF THAT TENDENCY WILL MAKE HIS OPINIONS THE RULE OF JUDGMENT, AND APPROVE OR CONDEMN THE SENTIMENTS OF OTHERS ONLY AS THEY SHALL SQUARE WITH OR DIFFER FROM HIS OWN;

    1785 THAT TO COMPEL A MAN TO FURNISH CONTRIBUTIONS OF MONEY FOR THE PROPAGATION OF OPINIONS WHICH HE DISBELIEVES AND ABHORS, IS SINFUL AND TYRANNICAL

    1785 UNLESS HE PROFESS OR RENOUNCE THIS OR THAT RELIGIOUS OPINION, IS DEPRIVING HIM INJURIOUSLY OF THOSE PRIVILEGES AND ADVANTAGES TO WHICH, IN COMMON WITH HIS FELLOW CITIZENS, HE HAS A NATURAL RIGHT;

     1785 THAT THE IMPIOUS PRESUMPTION OF LEGISLATORS AND RULERS, CIVIL AS WELL AS ECCLESIASTICAL, WHO, BEING THEMSELVES BUT FALLIBLE AND UNINSPIRED MEN, HAVE ASSUMED DOMINION OVER THE FAITH OF OTHERS, SETTING UP THEIR OWN OPINIONS AND MODES OF THINKING

    the bottom line in 1785

    And though we well know that this Assembly, elected by the people for the ordinary purposes of legislation only, have no power to restrain the acts of succeeding Assemblies, constituted with powers equal to our own, and that therefore to declare this act irrevocable would be of no effect in law;

    YET WE ARE FREE TO DECLARE, AND DO DECLARE, THAT THE RIGHTS HEREBY ASSERTED ARE OF THE NATURAL RIGHTS OF MANKIND, AND THAT IF ANY ACT SHALL BE HEREAFTER PASSED TO REPEAL THE PRESENT OR TO NARROW ITS OPERATION, SUCH ACT WILL BE AN INFRINGEMENT OF NATURAL RIGHT.

    Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian awarded the damages nearly six months ago, saying the owners had violated the women’s civil rights by discriminating on the basis of their sexual orientation.

    A 2007 OREGON LAW PROTECTS THE RIGHTS OF GAYS, LESBIANS, BISEXUAL AND TRANSGENDER PEOPLE IN EMPLOYMENT, HOUSING AND PUBLIC ACCOMMODATIONS. THE STATE RULED IT ALSO BARS PRIVATE BUSINESSES FROM DISCRIMINATING AGAINST POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS.

    January 2013 when Bowman-Cryer came into the shop with her mother for a cake-tasting appointment. However, Aaron Klein told the women that the bakery didn’t do cakes for same-sex weddings. THE WOMEN FILED COMPLAINTS WITH THE STATE AND TRIGGERED A NATIONAL DEBATE OVER CLAIMS OF RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AGAINST ANTI-DISCRIMINATION LAWS.

    —————————————————————————————-

    Well aware that the opinions and belief of men depend not on their own will, but follow involuntarily the evidence proposed to their minds; that Almighty God hath created the mind free, and manifested his supreme will THAT FREE IT SHALL REMAIN by making it altogether insusceptible of restraint;

    1785 THAT ALL ATTEMPTS TO INFLUENCE IT BY TEMPORAL PUNISHMENTS, OR BURTHENS, OR BY CIVIL INCAPACITATIONS, TEND ONLY TO BEGET HABITS OF HYPOCRISY AND MEANNESS, and are a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, who being lord both of body and mind, yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either, as was in his Almighty power to do, but to extend it by its influence on reason alone;

    1785 THAT THE IMPIOUS PRESUMPTION OF LEGISLATORS AND RULERS, CIVIL AS WELL AS ECCLESIASTICAL, WHO, BEING THEMSELVES BUT FALLIBLE AND UNINSPIRED MEN, HAVE ASSUMED DOMINION OVER THE FAITH OF OTHERS, SETTING UP THEIR OWN OPINIONS AND MODES OF THINKING

    as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world and through all time:

    that even the forcing him to support this or that teacher of his own religious persuasion, is depriving him of the comfortable liberty of giving his contributions to the particular pastor whose morals he would make his pattern, and whose powers he feels most persuasive to righteousness; and is withdrawing from the ministry those temporary rewards, which proceeding from an approbation of their personal conduct, are an additional incitement to earnest and unremitting labours for the instruction of mankind; that our civil rights have no dependance on our religious opinions, any more than our opinions in physics

    that therefore the proscribing any citizen as unworthy the public confidence by laying upon him an incapacity of being called to offices of trust and emolument, unless he profess or renounce this or that religious opinion, is depriving him injuriously of those privileges and advantages to which, in common with his fellow citizens, he has a natural right; that it tends also to corrupt the principles of that very religion it is meant to encourage, by bribing, with a monopoly of worldly honours and emoluments, THOSE WHO WILL EXTERNALLY PROFESS AND CONFORM TO IT; that though indeed these are criminal who do not withstand such temptation, yet neither are those innocent who lay the bait in their way; that the opinions of men are not the object of civil government, nor under its jurisdiction; that to suffer the civil magistrate to intrude his powers into the field of opinion and to restrain the profession or propagation of principles on supposition of their ill tendency is a dangerous fallacy,

    WHICH AT ONCE DESTROYS ALL RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, BECAUSE HE BEING OF COURSE JUDGE OF THAT TENDENCY WILL MAKE HIS OPINIONS THE RULE OF JUDGMENT, AND APPROVE OR CONDEMN THE SENTIMENTS OF OTHERS ONLY AS THEY SHALL SQUARE WITH OR DIFFER FROM HIS OWN;

    that it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order; and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself; that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate; errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them.

    We the General Assembly of Virginia do enact that no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities.
