More Thomas Jefferson; Less Rahm Emanuel

You may recall political strategist Rahm Emanuel’s sage advice to government.

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.” Well, I prefer Thomas Jefferson’s advice.

“In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution.”

Unfortunately, when panic ensues, people are far more likely to defer to Emanuel and his ilk than Jefferson. When people get scared, they want government to “do something.”

Anything.

And that’s exactly what we’re seeing right now.

A couple of weeks ago, Trump declared a state of emergency under two federal laws: the Stafford Act and the National Emergencies Act (NEA). The Stafford Act allows the federal government to “support” state governments to address an emergency. Incidentally, there is no constitutional authority for such an act. The NEA gives the president even broader authority. It authorizes the president to invoke special powers contained in more than 100 other provisions of federal law.

According to The Atlantic:

“There are laws that enable the president to shut down or take over radio stations, freeze Americans’ bank accounts, unilaterally limit international trade, and detail U.S. forces to other governments. And the NEA has no requirement that the powers the president invokes relate to the nature of the emergency.”

In fact, the president has already invoked the Defense Production Act claiming it empowers him to force private companies to produce things to fight the virus. Trump said the act allows him to do “a lot of good things, if we need it.”

This was intended for war. Now it’s being used for a “health crisis.”

Power always expands.

This is exactly what the Constitution was intended to prevent.

I’m sure a lot of people will agree these are “good things.” They will cheer Trump’s “bold leadership” in the time of crisis. But here’s an important thing to remember, put beautifully by my friend Jim Babka.

 “The power you give a politician you love today, to do something you want, is a power that will be used tomorrow by a politician you loathe, to do things you’ll hate.”

Every dot and tittle of power the president seizes during this “crisis” will be available to the next president when he or she decides to use it. Government power only grows. It never contracts.

It would be wise to remember that truth during this time.

We need a little more Jefferson and a little less Emanuel.

Our guest this evening is Phillip Anderton.  Phillip has been the long time host of a radio show called 4th and Baker and is Senior Executive Producer / On Air Host at Alternative Public Radio International. He is also hosting a public event covering the surgery:

“Well it finally happened CANCER I am doing this special event so you all can call the hospital and make sure they know you care about what happens to me, believe me the more of you that call the better.and if you want to send a card please send it to my home, I will add the address here in the event.calls to the hospital will help make sure they do an extra good job.as a former Paramedic I know this to be true. love yall.  My home address is

25016 Heather Glen Ct,# d

Veneta, Oregon 97487.”

Phillip is facing a crisis with his health.  A massive tumor on his kidney and liver.  He is scheduled for surgery on the 24th at Riverbend hospital in Springfield, Oregon.  Strangely, the hospital plans to send him home two days after surgery in an ambulance. Turns out, Phillip has to pay for that ride out of his own pocket.  He needs our support an needs to know we are out here cheering him on and hoping for the best possible outcome.

We will be talking about the changes in thinking when facing these unexpected situations in our lives.  How has his thinking and observations changed?  What are his foremost thoughts?  What are his plans?

 

Untested, full of toxins: forced vaccinations are coming your way

Leave a comment

My recent article on refusing vaccinations elicited many comments from people all over the world.  My article claimed the WHO had claimed the authority to dissolve governments and of course, the naysayers crawled out of the woodwork saying this was not true.   I will be posting an article this evening expanding on this claim, showing how and where the WHO claims to have this authority.  In the meantime, watch these videos’ which will clarify more fully the WHO’s claim to be able in a health “crisis” to take emergency government control, commandeering police among other entities to establish a government run by the United Nations via the WHO.    Marti
