How Was The American Republic Lost?
If and when the destruction of America’s Republic is reviewed in a historical perspective, the manner in which the enemies of liberty incrementally eroded the very foundation upon which America’s law and government were built will likely astound researchers.
America’s law and government were established upon the foundation of Christianity – “the Law of Nature and of Nature’s God” as the Declaration of Independence tell us – legally defined at the time of our founding as “the will of God” and “Holy Scripture.” [see Blackstone’s Commentaries, Section II by clicking HERE]
America’s founders believed it is the role of government to encourage Christianity among the people, and it is the duty of the people to elect only Christians as their leaders.
“In this age, there is no substitute for Christianity. That was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants. The great, vital and conservative element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure, doctrines and divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
U.S. House Judiciary Committee, 1854
As a matter of fact, at the time of the ratification of the Constitution and the Amendments, the state constitutions of every state in America required a public proclamation of Christian belief to hold public office.
Here are a few examples….
In 1853, citizens petitioned the U.S. Congress to have the Office of Chaplain abolished everywhere in the federal government. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee conducted an investigation of the Founding Era and issued an official report in March 1854. The U.S. Congressional report stated:
“Had the people during the Revolution had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle. At the time of the adoption of the constitution and the amendments, the universal sentiment was that Christianity should be encouraged – not any one sect. Any attempt to level and discard all religion would have been viewed with universal indignation. The object was not to substitute Judaism, or Mahomedanism, or infidelity, but to prevent rivalry among sects to the exclusion of others.”
How far have we fallen?
In 6000 years of recorded human history, all the governments of the world were monarchies – Kings, Czars, Emperors, Caliphs, and others with similar titles.
America’s founders knew history, philosophy, religion, and government. They created something new.
America was established as a Republic, NOT a democracy. The Founding Fathers loathed the idea of democracies because they knew democracies were the equivalent of mob rule, and always devolved into chaos with no regard for the rights nor the welfare of the minority.
A Republic is ruled by majority while respecting the rights of the minority. Thus, the need for a moral standard. America has a moral standard which is the bedrock of our entire society – the Law of Nature and Nature’s God.
Upon this bedrock, We the People consent to allow others to form a government and rule over us so long as they rule justly, which is to say in accordance with the will of God as he reveals himself in nature and Holy Scripture.
The government may make no law which violates the moral standard – the will of God and Holy Scripture. When a society operates like this, liberty grows and breeds creativity and innovation. Hence, America created the light bulb, the radio, the television, the automobile, rock and roll, the micro-chip, and put a man on the moon before anyone else.
In a society like this, great prosperity is produced.
Hence, America was the most prosperous nation and the longest standing Constitutional Republic in the history of the world.
America’s adversaries understood all this, and targeted the foundation.
From the 1600s through the 1960s, the Bible was in school classrooms across America, prayers were offered daily, and the principles of Love God and Love They Neighbor were taught.
Many American Universities were originally founded by pastors and ministers, but today are havens of atheism, satanism, and, of course, communism.
Harvard University is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. It is named after its first primary donor John Harvard, a Christian minister.
Harvard’s first President was Christian Reverend Henry Dunster who was appointed in 1640.
The first historical note on Harvard’s website is the baptism of John Harvard.
Now, since 2014, Harvard holds an annual “Sex Week” conference where courses on pornography, anal sex, kinky sex, and other such topics are taught. Free sex devices and condoms are also handed out to students.
So what happened between 1640 and 2018?
How did America go from the early 1960s with prayer and the Bibles in schools, respect for our flag, common decency, and men in the community willing to defend their honor and the honor of others, to 2021 where people argue there are more than two sexes, degeneracy is accepted, and people can act like wild animals burning down cities while those in positions of authority and leadership either do nothing or, worse, applaud the “courageous” efforts of the rioters?
The answer? What we are experiencing is the intentional outcome of a coordinated 100-year effort by the COMINTERN, Communist Party USA, and their allies, and the over 60-year effort by the North American Islamic Movement primarily led by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Even a cursory review of the doctrine, networks, and modus operandi of these two massive Movements in America – communist and Islamic – reveals their intentions have been knowable and their actions predictable for anyone willing to study them.
Communism always first attacks Christianity within any society it seeks to overtake, and Islam always destroys anything that violates “allah’s divine law/sharia.”
The list of 45 communist goals includes removing God from schools, destroying families, trashing the reputations of America’s Founding Fathers, encouraging deviant behavior, and attacking and dismantling all U.S. institutions which might stand in the communists’ way.
Going back 70 years, the communists intentionally sent agents into Catholic and protestant seminaries to subvert them. We see the results of those efforts with many churches teaching that abortion, homosexuality, and transgenderism are all okay with God, but defending liberty and righteousness are not.
From its early roots in Jamestown and Plymouth in the 1600s to the American Revolution and through the Civil War, America stood as the only nation in the history of the world which formed a government around the “self-evident” truth that all human beings are created by God and, therefore, have inherent and unalienable rights which can never be removed.
Over decades, Americans allowed their leaders to destroy the very fabric which held this nation together. We the People failed to acknowledge, as George Washington and other key Founding Fathers did, that Almighty God should be honored and praised for blessing us so that we may continue living in this amazing nation under his protection.
From the day Americans allowed prayer and the Bible to be stripped out of our schools, America began its decline.
Now, people who still retain the capacity for reasoned thought are astonished at the insanity they see and experience all around them.
I am often asked if the Republic can be re-established or if it is all over. I always respond by telling people that if I thought the cause was hopeless I would be in Tahiti on a beach with an umbrella drink and my guitar
I and the UTT team believe there is great hope.
However, victory requires great courage and perseverance on the part of our citizens. At UTT, we believe that each person must steel and prepare themselves for the “Alamo moment” and be willing to lay his/her life down for the cause of liberty and for what is right and just.
However, we must also pray for that “Red Sea moment,” knowing that it is possible. Victory in the war to reclaim America is very possible, but it cannot be achieved without great sacrifice.
We the People are the government. We allow others to govern us so long as they govern justly. They are not governing justly.
It is time to withdraw our consent and remove the tyrannical rulers from power. To do this, we have an obligation to exhaust all means possible to right this ship before the military option is utilized.
Understanding the Threat (UTT) believes the most effective way to do this is to first train and establish Ground Teams of local citizens, working in conjunction with local sheriffs when possible, to aggressively and lawfully identify and dismantle hostile networks – communist, jihadi, and otherwise – at the LOCAL level.
We can only win this war at the local level. No matter what is happening at the federal level, they can only enforce their tyrannical policies with enforcers at the local level. Without that, they lose and we win.
This is why, for years, UTT has stated and restated the key principles of this war:
- Speak truth boldly in love about real threats to America
- Re-Establish America’s founding principles at the local level (which includes bringing Bibles and prayers back into schools and removing government from the schools)
- Enforcing just laws and repealing unjust laws
America can be re-established as it was at our founding, but it will require great effort on the part of good and righteous people.
Victory here in America can only be achieved heroic daily efforts by millions of Americans.
