Revolution After The Twelfth

When Patrick Henry forcefully argued against Virginia’s ratification of the U.S. Constitution he made several prescient observations. In her book Patrick Henry: Patriot and Statesman Norine Dickson Campbell noted a statement made by Patrick Henry regarding the different sections of the country. Henry said: “The Northern states will never assent to regulation promotive of Southern aggrandizement…There is a striking difference, and great contrariety of interest between the States…This government subjects everything to the Northern majority. Is there not then a settled purpose to check the Southern interest?” Now that was a good question. How long has it been since anyone asked it? You can bet the farm your “history” books are not about to deal with it.

Miss Campbell noted, on page 367 of her book, Henry’s almost prophetic assertions, when she said: “His discernment in the Virginia Convention 180 years ago is astonishing and merits singular praise in light of the events of today. He prophesied the fate of the agricultural South at the hands of the industrial North. He foretold the baneful effects of a supreme judiciary beholden to no one. Patrick Henry declared that this government would not last a century. He had not been in his grave 65 years before his predictions came to pass…” The advent of the War of Northern Aggression proved conclusively what Henry had stated. Virginia should have listened. Henry also argued that, should this Constitution be adopted, then more of a “Bill of Rights” than ten amendments should be adopted. It has been stated that Henry favored nineteen amendments, but we only ended  up with ten, most of which are just plain ignored by government today at any level.

Be that as it may, if we read the first ten amendments we find that power was supposed to reside with the states and that these amendments seem to be written in a way that restricted the federal government. From the First Amendment that starts out “Congress shall make no law…” to the Tenth Amendment stating the powers not delegated to the federal government by the Constitution …”are reserved to the states respectively or to the people.” The intent would seem to be one that limits federal power over the states and over individuals.

However, in this context, we must remember that, in 1776 we did NOT fight an “American Revolution.” We fought a War for Independence. Then, in 1861,  the real American Revolution occurred–a revolution that God-fearing and patriotic Americans in both North and South lost! Unless and until we begin to slice through some of the bovine fertilizer they forced on us in most of those Unitarian seminaries we refer to as “public (really government) schools” we will never be able to grasp that sad fact.  Consequently, most people are utterly unable to even begin to think about dealing with the mess we find ourselves in today. By 1865 FEDERAL DICTATORSHIP had won the day and the fatal seeds of the federal oppression we find ourselves beset with today had been sown. I don’t think even Mr. Trump totally apprehends the true depth of what we refer to as the Deep State.  The reason for this state of affairs was American apostasy, pure and simple. After Northern Unitarian apostasy had denied the truth of Scripture and repudiated the Holy Trinity, and done it quite successfully for over two generations, something had to give. They sowed the wind and we are living to reap the whirlwind.

So, taking apostasy into account, let’s take a look at our constitutional amendments. The first ten sought to restrict federal power except in certain specific areas. But by the time the second version of the 13th Amendment came along the American Revolution was nearly over. Debates on the second Thirteenth Amendment were taking place in 1864, just before the shooting phase of the revolution was over.

So look at the wording contained in the second 13th Amendment–“Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.” You have the same exact wording in the infamous 14th and 15th Amendments. In fact you have basically the same wording in the 16th, 19th, 23rd, 24th, and 26th Amendments. Can you observe the fundamental shift in thinking here? Please note that, by 1865, we had degenerated  from the concept of “Congress shall make no law” to the concept of  “Congress shall have the power to enforce.” Consider that for awhile.

There is a not-very-subtle shift after the War of Northern Aggression from state power to federal power–where we are today. This is proof of the success of the shooting phase of the revolution which started in 1861, but it is also proof of the cultural shift in the North, which started decades earlier.

Some of those who took part in the debates concerning the second 13th Amendment  could see the revolutionary nature of  the amendment in its wording and they sought to warn their colleagues of its revolutionary intent–to no avail. Many who partook of the debate were the usual suspects in the abolitionist/reconstruction/19th century Deep State camp. Others were not. Fernando Wood, Democrat of New York stated: “The control over slavery,  and the domestic and social relations of the people of the respective states, was not and never intended to be delegated to the United States…”

According to Wood,  the proposal of the amendment “arraigns the President as having violated the Constitution in his Emancipation Proclamation, and stamps it as a nullity and void.” Wood contended that the war was not fought to preserve the Union, “but was directed against the sovereignties of the states,  and to destroy such of their domestic institutions as were obnoxious to the views of the party controlling the government for the time.” The slavery question aside, there was a concerted effort on the part of the federal government  to destroy the rights of the individual states and to replace those rights with national power. And if we are still naïve enough to think that such did not succeed, then we have no real grasp of our history.

With the adoption of the second 13th Amendment, Congress began to usurp the rights of the states and began to exercise unconstitutional power to enforce “appropriate legislation” to back up its new national decrees. This was, in essence, the beginning of our modern “civil rights” movement. It was also the beginning of the eventual repeal of the Bill of Rights. The “Patriot Act” passed hurriedly after the 9/11 situation finished that repeal almost completely.

Now admittedly, you may not like them apples–I can’t say that I’m overly fond of them myself. But let’s face facts.  Departure from God’s Truth (apostasy)  paved the way for forty years for the 1861-65 American Revolution. Unless we are willing to repudiate that apostasy  and return to “the faith once delivered unto the saints” the revolution, in its more revolting states, will continue unabated until God judges an apostate and corrupt America.

Until we realign our thinking in regard to apostasy and revolution and start trying to act biblically in regard to our present dismal situation, we are only spinning our wheels and getting deeper into the mud of chaos and confusion. Either we will accept God as our Ruler, or tyrants will rule us. There is no middle ground.

  1. Awesome Al. You could not be more correct on every level and point. Nothing like the Good Lord’s honest truth staring you in the face. One of your unique masterpieces indeed.
    I’ll be reading this excellent piece you wrote a number of times to be sure I can understand everything and be fully enlightened by all of the facets within.

  2. “Henry’s Rat”

    Who knew beyond the obvious, it would be so as you sublimely point out, after all thats transpired? All the history. It all comes full circle. Sneaky little guy, showing up everywhere, more relevant with each passing day.

    • He was right.

      Always took it as a strange war. They wanted back what truly Freemen, retook as their own to begin with. After they failed, it seems they went total Fabian, never stopped, still at it. Reckless hate and generational hubris only the Bible can define in proper perspective and grace.

      From growing up in the area of NH where they had most of their Kings Grants, huge tracks of private land holding, still there today, their “bugout” locations of the day, the loyalists fled to hide. Their dependents still reside on these Grants, and other 1000 acre plus compounds. Old old generational money. The ones Ive known, almost all kind of inbred and very hedonistic. The trust fund brats of these old loyalist families are almost all red diaper babies to the man. You couldn’t help meet them socially, small place up in the north country. Now, long years past, I can see how it goes back to the 5000 Year Leap, and an inbred generational hate for Liberty and self determination.

      Think you always been right about Lincoln and his marxist’s war of aggression Al. It was war continued, always to take back the 5000 year leap. To stop the happiness and prosperity. Incinerate God’s Sovereignty and the natural laws bestowed upon us.
      What is beginning to dawn on people, is we are all Confederates now. And they are bringing that constant cold war against the beautiful secession from their tyranny and abolition of their slavery of their precious State, back to a hot war.
      I believe they loose everything again this go around, at least, like they did the first time.
      Hopefully it’s a cleansing.

      Really, good job Al, this is a fine piece of thinking and writing. Only a Copperhead could write it.

      Kind regards,
      Doug

  5. Thanks Doug. I see what you are saying about a copperhead being able to write it. You and I have seen both sides of the cultural coin and by God’s grace, been able to tell the true side from the false.

    • You are most very welcome. Appreciate you too Al.
      All you can do is tell the truth, and help others see it as such.
      Of course that all begins with each of us, before it is all of us. We must become that indomitable plurality again, that knows it is one, realizes it is, Legion, it is how you win.
      The way we get there is by the Truth, and together.

  6. That re-alignment in thinking, involves in simplest terms, so enough understand with appropriate respect of the truth, that the USC as far as us free people are concerned is nothing but a piece of old parchment with some fancy words that sound nice in the proper agitprop, of the ultimate plausible deniability written on it.

    A bitter pill for some, a most uncomfortable truth to face for many not awakened to this fantasy of “limited government” guaranteed in republican form of representation of the will of the governed, if for no other reason it entails abandoning a lifetime of lies foisted on an entire people, taken as historical gospel.
    To accept you been conned into believing a lie such a despotic arrangement as something to keep you a slave to the state, is indeed an apostasy all its own. I can imagine a great many will never accept their entire lives have been lived in an illusion of legitimate governance. That it is nothing so profound, even calling it “the deep state” is an insult to the truth of things, giving what it is a kind of glorification, for nothing but an organized crime syndicate gang, gangsta’ government arranged to enrich and empower a handful of yankee banksters families and their various factions and crime families in cahoots to strip mine the wealth of the dirt people.

    That we lived so long under this illusion, is something all its own I don’t have words for even after understanding and accepting the truth of it.

    I think the horror of it will destroy what it is. The thin vile of whole cloth, the illusion of legitimacy of it, will evaporate, for it can not survive its own illegitimacy, and as we are seeing as the truth outs, merely the truth, not even believed by any large plurality in specific detail, but that the illusion has been cast in such doubt by hints of its own inherent despotic structure, is causing a crisis of legitimacy.
    It can not walk back any of its exposure. No matter how hard and despotically it is trying to return to its “good old days”, the spell is broken. Enough know the truth. You can not fabricate such truths. They have a way of crossing all barriers in a way which leaves doubt, and doubt in this is the greatest enemy of the illusion.
    The crisis of legitimacy is now very close to the state where all resources are consumed in just surviving the crisis. We see it more each day. It may appear arrogant, elitist, but it is desperation in truth, desperation to hold on to the power and force to coerce, the power in special privilege once so jealously guarded. What it can not cope with with is it faces threats from the outside in, from the bottom up, and it being a power usurped from the top down, inside out, it’s existential threat is itself, its illegitimacy, and all this running around trying to stop the message, black out the truth, police the free thought of people, distract, undermine, subvert, destroy, though it can not see it as such, becomes self indictment of its actors and their despotic arrangements. Its elemental, one doesn’t need to accept the truth so much as sense something is deeply not right, which is about the only deep thing about this deep state, for natural resistance to what it is to form. One has to literally commit the most extreme desire to hold onto normalcy bias or perform sycophantic mental gymnastics to ignore it for what it is.

    I believe that the leaderless insurgency, open source in no uncertain terms, of withdrawal of consent by 65 million people on 11-8-2016 is the pivotal moment. The birth of the paradigm, that great sea change in thinking by dirt people, the honorable resistance if you will, it is that ziegeiest that portends both ending and beginning of things. That such a plurality rose up, that it possesess such audacity, and within there lies a great smoldering motive power, long subdued and denied by this illegitimacy, that it never disappeared, but reformed at a higher level each time it was prohibited and proscribed, that it is reaching that amazing moment when this body of honorable resistance, suddenly realizes it is Legion, that great indomitable God blessed plurality.

    It is too late to stuff it back in its bottle where it had been kept since 1864.
    I think too, this time it is a true leaderless resistance, something no state or force of tyranny can stop. It is steadily increasing, and every day more and more think gee, it is that bad, it is that evil, I do not have to stand for it, it is OK to want to be left alone, to not have agents come hither, meddle in every facet of the sphere in my life, to be self determining, individualistic, that the provincial, the agrarian cultivator, the stewardship of God’s green Earth, that happiness is prosperity, not belongings, that it is ok to reject the modern and the industrial world, that it is OK to love God as he loves his shepard’s, that to resist this illusion is honorable, all theses things and a myriad more, these things in the hearts and minds of men is what conquers this evil. This is the truths that matter most. This I think is the gestalt of our time for many. That it and us are with malice and forethought marginalized, subjected to pogrom and genocide, is the issue unresolved in the 1st revolution.

    You can see it in John Mosby and the Men he led. They never gave up, not for 1 second. They never quit. They believed as Men of the Great birth of The Christian Greco/Roman West in something, which was never, no matter how much it was tried, extinguished. They had audacity and spirit which held back half of what was thrown at the meat grinder of the war of northern aggression. 300 Men, Mosby’s warriors, never more, almost always less, held off all that tyranny. So yes you can say the north won, but the South never lost either. Lee may have given up direct combat with the Army of Virginia, yet Mosby never surrendered. He never had to, he never would have. I think because he understood almost like no one, except for Patrick Henry, the truth of the illegitimacy. This last is paramount. Because what the honorable resistance is, goes back to fiat law, defacto law, its illegitimacy, its utter illegitimacy. The legion may not know in exact words, it may not even have a grasp on the essential in cognitive form, but it knows, oh yeah it knows something stinks, it smell’s Henry’s Rat.
    And that it is not just one guy, Patrick Henry, or one great Warrior, John Mosby, but a Legion. It suspects. And one day here, its going to look around and it is this great epiphany all at once. And like those two great warriors, one of the pen, and one of the sword, its gonna come with a bone in its teeth and it will not stop till it decides to stop.
    I believe it is inevitable.

    When Patrick Henry forcefully argued against Virginia’s ratification of the U.S. Constitution he made several prescient observations.

    In her book Patrick Henry: Patriot and Statesman Norine Dickson Campbell noted a statement made by Patrick Henry regarding the different sections of the country. Henry said: “The Northern states will never assent to regulation promotive of Southern aggrandizement…
    There is a striking difference, and great contrariety of interest between the States… This government subjects everything to the Northern majority. Is there not then a settled purpose to check the Southern interest?” Now that was a good question. How long has it been since anyone asked it? You can bet the farm your “history” books are not about to deal with it…

    Miss Campbell noted, on page 367 of her book, Henry’s almost prophetic assertions, when she said: “His discernment in the Virginia Convention 180 years ago is astonishing and merits singular praise in light of the events of today. He prophesied the fate of the agricultural South at the hands of the industrial North. He foretold the baneful effects of a supreme judiciary beholden to no one. Patrick Henry declared that this government would not last a century. He had not been in his grave 65 years before his predictions came to pass…” The advent of the War of Northern Aggression proved conclusively what Henry had stated. Virginia should have listened. Henry also argued that, should this Constitution be adopted, then more of a “Bill of Rights” than ten amendments should be adopted.

    (But in our Founder’s defense, they did provide “more of a “Bill of Rights” than ten amendments, with the inclusion of the 9th and 10th Amendments that included all issues and cases not specifically enumerated in the original U.S. Constitution of 1787!…
    Article [IX] (Amendment 9 – Unenumerated Rights)
    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the People.[Emphasis Added]

    Article [X] (Amendment 10 – Reserved Powers)
    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. [Emphasis Added]–Al Barrs)

    It has been stated that Henry favored Nineteen Amendments, but we only ended up with ten, most of which are just plain ignored by government today at any level.

    Be that as it may, if we read the first Ten Amendments we find that power was supposed to reside with the states and that these amendments seem to be written in a way that restricted the Federal government. From the First Amendment that starts out “Congress shall make no law…” to the Tenth Amendment stating the powers not delegated to the Federal Government by the Constitution …”are reserved to the states respectively or to the people”. The intent would seem to be one that limits Federal power over the states and over individual citizens.

    However, in this context, we must remember that, in 1776 we did NOT fight an “American Revolution”. We fought a War for Independence. (Actually the Colonists fought a true “civil war” against Great Britain and its tyrannical king George III!–Al Barrs) Then, in 1861, the real American Revolution occurred–a revolution that God-fearing and patriotic Americans in both North and South lost! Unless and until we begin to slice through some of the bovine fertilizer (shit) they forced on us in most of those Unitarian seminaries we refer to as “public (really government) schools” (Today Marxist-socialist schools who have since 1960 stepped up their infiltration and takeover of our education institutes and brainwashed thousands of U.S. children in the FALSE hope of the communist ways! And, if one needs proof, why do you think Socialist Bernie Sanders received some four million socialist votes in 2016.–Al Barrs) we will never be able to grasp that sad fact.

    Consequently, most people are utterly unable to even begin to think about dealing with the mess we find ourselves in today. By 1865 FEDERAL DICTATORSHIP had won the day and the fatal seeds of the Federal oppression we find ourselves beset with today had been sown. I don’t think even Mr. Trump totally apprehends the true depth of what we refer to as the “Deep State”. (NO, President Trump doesn’t understand the true depth of the “Deep State”, he still believes Abraham Lincoln was our greatest President. Of course he too attended those Marxist controlled schools and colleges!–Al Barrs)

    The reason for this state of affairs was American apostasy, pure and simple. After Northern Unitarian apostasy had denied the truth of Scripture and repudiated the Holy Trinity, and done it quite successfully for over two generations, something had to give. They sowed the wind and we are living to reap the whirlwind.

    So, taking apostasy into account, let’s take a look at our Constitutions Amendments. The first ten (The first ten amendments are our “Bill of Rights”, all amendments following the first ten are simply amendments to the Constitution and ARE NOT amendments of the Bill of Rights!–Al Barrs) sought to restrict Federal power except in certain specific areas. But by the time the second version of the 13th Amendment came along the American Revolution was nearly over. Debates on the second Thirteenth Amendment were taking place in 1864, just before the shooting phase of the revolution was over.

    So look at the wording contained in the second 13th Amendment–“Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation (Which is better than Congress having the unfettered right to make their own amendments, like the Federal Courts have used “Judicial Activism”, i.e. “Legislating from the Bench”, which is unconstitutional and making judicial “precedence” and “doctrines”, which have no constitutional or legal precedence, but no one has the guts to stop Judicial Activism!–Al Barrs).” You have the same exact wording in the infamous 14th and 15th Amendments. (NOTE that the 13th, the questionably legal 14th, and the 15th Amendments are “Reconstruction Amendments” passed by the rump Union Congress before the Northern military establishment and anti-South legislators would allow southern elected Congress members to participate in Congress–in fact the Union anti-southern legislators locked the southern delegation out of Congress until they gerrymandered their “Reconstruction Amendments” to further destroy the agriculture South!–Al Barrs) In fact you have basically the same wording in the 16th, 19th, 23rd, 24th and 26th Amendments. Can you observe the fundamental shift in thinking here? Please note that, by 1865, we had degenerated from the concept of “Congress shall make no law” to the concept of “Congress shall have the power to enforce”. Consider that for a while…

    There is a not-very-subtle shift after the War of Northern Aggression from State power to Federal power–where we are today. This is proof of the success of the shooting phase of the revolution which started in 1861, but it is also proof of the cultural shift in the North, which started decades earlier.

    Some of those who took part in the debates concerning the second 13th Amendment could see the revolutionary nature of the amendment in its wording and they sought to warn their colleagues of its revolutionary intent–to no avail. Many who partook of the debate were the usual suspects in the abolitionist/reconstruction/19th century “Deep State” camp. Others were not. Fernando Wood, Democrat of New York stated: “The control over slavery, and the domestic and social relations of the people of the respective states, was not and never intended to be delegated to the United States…” (Until after 1865 there was never any “control” over the institution of slavery. Only in 1803 did the Founders include that no additional slaves would be transported into the U.S.A., yet in several clauses the institution of slavery was enshrined in our U.S. Constitution. Of course the Founders were particular to not use the word “slave” but they used synonyms which meant the same thing, the institution of slavery was a U.S.A. constitutional Right of U.S. citizens; many of which were Black slave owners!–Al Barrs)

    According to Wood, the proposal of the amendment “arraigns the President as having violated the Constitution in his “Emancipation Proclamation” (Which never freed any slave in the North or South for practical purposes. Lincoln had no control over southern slaves in 1863, and he didn’t, in his, EP, free any border state slaves or any slaves in Northern states. Besides Lincoln’s EP was never anything more than one of his propaganda stunts to gain northern troop and citizen support, when his skinny ass was on the line and Northern troops were in poor moral and going AWL.–Al Barrs), and stamps it as a nullity and void.”

    Wood contended that The War was not fought to preserve the Union, “but was directed against the sovereignties of the states and to destroy such of their domestic institutions as were obnoxious to the views of the party controlling the government for the time.” (The War was chiefly about the North’s scheme to pack the House of Representatives with pro-industry members and elect a pro-industry President so punitive tariff laws could be passed without Southern interference to build the Northeast manufacturing tycoons industrial infrastructure to support their planned “Northeastern Industrial Revolution to control world commerce from the Northeast”–Al Barrs) The slavery question aside, there was a concerted effort on the part of the Federal government to destroy the rights of the individual states and to replace those rights with national power. And if we are still naïve enough to think that such did not succeed, then we have no real grasp of our history. (What Lincoln failed to do was cleaned up by socialist law school deans and directors, like Harvard’s Roscoe Pound, who worked during the early 1900s to transform our individual jurisprudence system of government into a socialist jurisprudence system, which is what we have today, but most citizens fail to notice it…–Al Barrs)

    With the adoption of the second 13th Amendment, Congress began to usurp the rights of the states and began to exercise unconstitutional power to enforce “appropriate legislation” to back up its new national decrees. This was, in essence, the beginning of our modern “civil rights” movement. It was also the beginning of the eventual repeal of the Bill of Rights. The “Patriot Act” passed hurriedly after the 9/11 situation finished that repeal almost completely.

    Now admittedly, you may not like them apples–I can’t say that I’m overly fond of them myself. But let’s face facts. Departure from God’s Truth (apostasy) paved the way for forty years for the 1861-65 American Revolution. Unless we are willing to repudiate that apostasy and return to “the faith once delivered unto the saints” the revolution, in its more revolting states, will continue unabated until God judges an apostate and corrupt America.

    Until we realign our thinking in regard to apostasy and revolution and start trying to act biblically in regard to our present dismal situation, we are only spinning our wheels and getting deeper into the mud of chaos and confusion. Either we will accept God as our Ruler, or tyrants will rule us. There is no middle ground.
