“John Adams speech before the Continental Congress on Freedom and the reading of The Declaration Of Independence”

John Adams – God Save The American States

 

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

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 of 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 shewn 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. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

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 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.

  1. Keep the faith in spite of (maybe because of) Kerchner Motion to Dismiss being granted!

    Orly’s two cases (Fed District Cts. in Ga and Ca) are pivotally different from Kerchner (Fed District Ct. in NJ).

    In fact, it’s no coincidence that Kerchner was dismissed — after waiting many months — right after the the two Orly cases successfully provided avenues to get Obama to account in a way which would NOT throw the courts and nation into constitutional crisis — the big fear of the federal courts (re political question etc.).

    Judge Land (Orly penalty) case is currently all about Orly merely showing her case not frivolous (premised on need not to chill the rest of Americans from addressing their constitution). Checkmate against Obama!

    Likewise, Judge Carter (Keyes) case does not have to deal with the constitutional nightmare of ousting Obama, that is, merely recovery of damages in fraud tort (even nominal) by Candidate Keyes against “Candidate” (not “President”) Obama will do the job — since Congress and the Dems would be politically compelled to oust Obama. Again, checkmate against Obama!

    Were either and/or both Orly cases to move forward (standing is ALL that’s needed since it’s SLAM DUNK that Const Art. 2 requires two citizen parents for POTUS eligibility), it’s all over for Obama, because politically his remaining in the Whitehouse, again, would be completely untenable even for the Dems and Congress.

    Thus, after Orly files for Motion for Summary Judgment, premised even on all facts in dispute going for Obama (noting that Obama has declared to the world in what as admission against interest, that his dad was Kenyan/British citizen on Baby O’s birth) the Courts can take the case without ever having to deal with discovery on the sole legal issue of meaning/applicabability of Const. Art. 2.

    This leaves Team Obama really with its last remaining legal argument (noting that Fed. Ct. can get pendant jurisdiction over Keyes’ tort action):

    Const. Art 2. “natural born citizen” = “citizen by birth”

    Const. Art 2. “citizen” = “citizen by naturalization”

    Nice try, but no cigar!

    … especially since all the fuss about McCain and the Senate Resolution would be shown.

    So, take heart — and if I’m wrong that’s the current end of our Constitutional Republic (and could mean the second American Revolution since all other means have been turned back by a Government currently under unconstitutional coup d’etat).

    I truly sympathize with Judge Carter, and our prayers should be with him, as he says he reads the internet and is aware of these factors (including the possible RICO implications recently filed by Orly and ongoing scrubbing of Obama-foreign born refernces in the Honolulu Advertiser just last week before our very eyes — and during the pendency of Stay on Discovery (apparently being exploited by the “Government” and Dept. of ‘Justice’, no less).

  2. This is what taking ACTION and making a STAND looks like.

    http://www.resistnet.com/forum/topics/latest-strategy-to-kill

    Make some noise…let these Political Pigs know we are paying attention and are MAD AS HELL and won’t take it any more on 2010.

  3. Harry GReid admits Obamscare will cost 2 Trillion

  4. Wow! Stunning article about Obama’s Columbia
    classmates, Political Science majors circa ’83.

    None of the 400 students remember him!

    Must read article:

    http://www.theuniversalseduction.com

    Obama is still refusing to release his college
    records from Columbia, did he even attend???

    Also, both Michelle and Obama lost their license
    to practice law in Illinois, this may be tied
    to the birth certificate issue in Obama’s case….

  5. @Jay:

    Everything about Obama is a lie. Every single thing.

    He is not who he says he is. He is not who anyone says he is.

    However this ends, it isn’t going to end well.

  6. I wonder if any of his classmates remember Barry Soetoro.

  7. Dear Mrs (Mr)!
    I want to show you my new Blog “Military Diplomacy” with Url address http://nkotev.wordpress.com . The blog is for the diplomatic history and foreign policy during the Second World War. You can see also the Zhukov`s Berlin`s Strategic operation in photos.
    Best wishes
    Nikolay Kotev

  8. I can remember people that I went to school with as far back as the first grade, first name and last name. I can’t recall the names of anyone that I went to kindergarten with though. I remember the names and faces of almost everyone I went to high school and college with. Even people that I never spoke a word to.

    It’s hard to imagine that no-one could remember going to school with the first “black man” to become president though. There’s nothing fishy goin’ on here, nah, nothing at all…

  9. IS THIS A JOKE?

    Lucas Daniel Smith 10.12.09 new Declaration SACV09-00082-DOC (Anx)

  10. Lets move forward…

    Posting a list of 2010 Senate races in Alphabetical order by state. List was compiled by Votefromabroad.org

    Primaries are 8 months away….
    This list definitly needs revision but, gives one an idea of where we need to go.

    First list are competitive races.
    Second, so called “SAFE” Democratic races, and lastly “SAFE” Republican races.

    http://electoral-vote.com/evp2009/Senate/Senate_races.html

    I’m sure that there are other lists just as good, but we need to start someplace.

    As I posted before we have,

    The Democrat Party,
    The Republican Party,
    Independents,

    And now,

    The American Tea Party!!!
    (Made up of Americans……
    Democrats, Republicans and Independents). Time to organize…..

  11. New declaration filed by Lucas Smith on Scribd
    I can’t get it. Can someone here help find it and link it? Just curious what this is

    Another declaration dated 10.12.2009 by Lucas Daniel Smith filed in Orly’s Civil Action SACVO9-00082-DOC (Anx) CAPTAIN PAMELA BARNETT vs BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.

  12. I’m fascinated reading the Declaration of Independence, because it appears that in ways history is repeating itself.

    But it is far worse now, because back then, although the King of Great Britain was very oppressive, he was nonetheless the legit King. But look at what we have now. We have a man who is not a legit POTUS, and this is much worse; it should never have gotten this far. Being that it has gotten this far, it may be to late to save America. It probably is.

    Barry and the Constitution of the United States of America, are not in sync. The longer Barry remains in the position of being POTUS, the more the Constitution will continue to be dissolved. There is no possible way that the 2 can coexist.

    Can the following happen today?

    “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of 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.”

    It would take a force of arms at this point to remove the present corrupt government and I don’t see this happening at all. Also time is not on our side, and I don’t think we are going to make it to election time to vote them all out. The corruption has gone to far.

    I hate to say this, but after everything is said and done, I believe only a fragment or a remnant of America is going to be left in the near future.

  13. @ Upstate Warrior:

    I agree, I don’t think we have until election time. I don’t know what the solution is at this point, but this federal government is so corrupt, so utterly evil, it is the enemy.

    @ hapnHal:

    I respect your post, and I do not mean to belittle it in any way, however, I don’t wish to elect republicans or democrats any longer. They are both the enemy. Never in my life would I have imagined myself saying this, but it is the federal government of the united states that is the Axis of Evil.

  14. Baraq

    You missed it?

    The NEW party

    “American Tea Party”

    Made up of Patriotic Americans…

    Republicans, Democrats, and Independents! Time to unite and throw the bums out.

  15. I suspect that the Obama goons either bribed or threatened the other judges who ruled in Obama’s favor. My greatest fear is that they will also get to Judge Carter. We must give widespread attention to the fact that Judge Carter was a U.S. Marine. Appeal to him that we are expecting him to live up to his oath and to protect our nation from enemies far more destructive than any he would encounter on the battlefield. Does anyone here know if it is appropriate to contact him through fax or email or even snailmail?

  16. hapnHal // October 23, 2009 at 1:46 am

    GREAT idea!
    “American Tea Party”

    Republicans
    Independents
    Democrats

    Made up of Patriotic Americans who want to RID our county of the man who is destroying it.

  17. CORRECTION……

    Made up of Patriotic Americans who want to RID our county of MEMBERS OF CONGRESS who are destroying it. We need to hold them accountable for passing the laws that have put us under insurmountable debt.

  18. @hapnHal:

    I would definitely join such a party.

    I wanted to leave the republican party after 2008 very badly, but I was convinced by others that the only reasonable course of action would be to re-take the party from the RINO’s.

    However, after seeing the situation in New York where this ultra-liberal woman is being pushed by such people as Newt Gingrich, I want to leave again.

    I am really sick of the GOP not getting it. They are just stuck on stupid wanting to go the same route as always and not realizing how the dynamics of not only the country but their own voting base has changed. Basically, if people like John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Snowe, Collins, Luger, Dole, Frist won’t leave the party, then I have no choice but to leave. I cannot tolerate people like this in any way.

    People just don’t seem willing to tolerate more of the same from them. I know that I am not willing. I am very pleased at this point to see that Sarah Palin as come out for Hoffman instead of towing the GOP line.

  19. Jonah said, “Made up of Patriotic Americans who want to RID our county of MEMBERS OF CONGRESS who are destroying it.”

    Jonah,
    If we elect new members of CONgress what difference will it make?

    When you play the board game Monopoly the players at the table may change, but the rules stay the same.

    The federal government is corrupt. Laws have been written which have set the stage to destroy the Republic. There are hundreds of laws that would have to be repealed. You need to go back to at least 1913 when the Federal Reserve system was created.

    We can’t just elect new members of CONgress, we need to nulify all the unconstitutional laws.

    What do you think the odds are that we can get all those worthless bills repealed?

    Yeah.

  20. Wayne Allen Root, Liberatarian VP candidate, was president of the Poli Sci graduating class of 1983. He offered Obama $1 Million to see his transcripts, and he does not remember Obama either.

    Obama’s major? Political Science, graduated 1983.

    I did not see your post when I asked for help to view that page. ….. WOW!

    Everyone take a look at Danny’s link at @12:51. I don’t know what to think about that????

  25. Being a 54 year old male I can tell you that I can probably count on one hand how many times I have been brought to tears by the age of 53. Being 1200 miles from home watching a plane crash into the second tower comes to mind as one. Going to my first NASCAR race with my 21 year old son and hearing the hundreds of thousands of people singing the Star Spangled Banner in unison as the F-16’s flew by was another. Winning 4 straight against the Yankees…But since the election of ’08 I find myself tearful more and more as post like this cause me to realize how far we have sunk this country…..We will get it back!

  26. Everyone take a look at Danny’s link at @12:51. I don’t know what to think about that????

    I’m confused now…what is going on?

  27. America’s Phoney War in Afghanistan

    Snipped from:
    http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=15761

    The US military is in Afghanistan for two reasons. FIRST to restore and control the world’s largest supply of opium for the world heroin markets and to use the drugs as a geopolitical weapon against opponents, especially Russia.

    That control of the Afghan drug market is essential for the liquidity of the bankrupt and corrupt WALL STREET financial mafia.

    LOOKS LIKE WASHINGTON (CIA) IS GOOD AT CREATING SLICK, HOLLYWOOD MYTHOLOGICAL PRESIDENTS ABROAD THAT BOW TO THE WALL STREET FINANCIAL MAFIA.

    It has been documented that Washington hand-picked the controversial Hamid Karzai, a Pashtun warlord from the Popalzai tribe, long in the CIA’s service, brought him back from exile in the USA, created a Hollywood mythology around his “courageous leadership of his people.”

    According to Afghan sources, Karzai is the Opium “Godfather” of Afghanistan today. There is apparently no accident that he was and is today still Washington’s preferred man in Kabul. Yet even with massive vote buying and fraud and intimidation, Karzai’s days could be ending as President.

    The SECOND reason the US military remains in Afghanistan long after the world has forgotten even who the mysterious Osama bin Laden and his alleged Al Qaeda terrorist organization is or even if they exist, is as a pretext to build a permanent US military strike force with a series of permanent US airbases across Afghanistan.

  28. The alleged Lucas Smith document looks suspicious.
    My first impression is that it is the work of an Obot.
    I will read it again later.

    How deep is the Obama camp in subverting justice?
    Based on facts from the past 2 years, very deep.
    The more we work with congressmen, the more they learn of Obama’s connections to the
    criminal ACORN, the more they learn of the socialist, communist, criminal Czars and other
    Obama associates, the easier it will be to get them to investigate this mess.
    When I say we must change Congress, I mean the members, the balance of party affiliations,
    the control of the leftist Democrat party and accountability. They must know that we watching them.
    The sqeaky wheel of the far left must no longer be the louder noise and influencing catalyst.

    *******************************************

    Sounds like Smith is working with Kreep now and his minions…..Smith wanted money for his testimony but when Orly told him to get a job and she didn’t have money to give him…..he is now trying to smear her……there is NO way he could have written this…..Kreep had to do it for him probably using the money that unsuspecting citizens are contributing at the USJF where he solicits money! Kreep is a creep….he doesn’t even know the correct meaning of NBC….he thinks it requires only being born on US soil which we all know is incorrect!

  30. Congratulations! *Mario and Magdelena*

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1st Corinthians 13:4-7

    I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

    My Wish

  31. LM,

    I like your intent, but not your choice of transliteration. What was it ?

    Colossians 1:28, 29
    We proclaim Christ, admonishing and teaching our children with all wisdom, so that we may present all of our children perfect in Christ. To this end we labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in us, their parents.

    Here’s the (Aramaic) which is older than the greek and latin.

    Colossians 1:28,29

    Him we preach and teach and make known to every man in all wisdom, that we may cause every man to become perfect through Jesus Christ;

    And to this end I labour and strive through the help of the power which is given to me.

    I wonder if any of his classmates remember Barry Soetoro.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Using aliases isn’t necessary, if his picture hasn’t been displayed enough under any of his ‘names’ by now, then he’ll never be recognized.

    Or is the theory that one classmate has been in the congo for 3 years and unaware of investigations into his identity?? I doubt that.

  36. It would take a force of arms at this point to remove the present corrupt government and I don’t see this happening at all.

    When the military are given a ‘gag’ order, where does that leave ordinary citizens as us??
