WE DECLARE — Our Grievances with Obama

 

At the end of the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence is this statement: “…a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”  We here at BeJohnGalt have undertaken the task of reviewing the causes listed for separation in 1776 and relating them one-by-one to our current situation.  This is part one of another installment of this series. Please, read on…

In The Declaration of Independence our Founders proclaimed,

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 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”

In this grievance our Founders addressed certain acts of British Parliament alien to the colonial legislatures, including the very dissolution of those legislatures. Jefferson specifically addressed a number of these acts in detail.  Thomas Jefferson’s A Summary View of the Rights of British America, 1774 paragraphs 5-13. Jefferson reflected the British constitution also rested upon the principle that government authority was granted through the consent of the governed, and the individual retained the inherent right to remove those governments when consent waned.

The Founders challenged the authority of the British Parliament, and declared King George, by not voiding the actions of the British Parliament, had given his assent to its acts.

While the Founders recognized that the colonists had consented to be governed by their various colonial legislatures, and as these legislatures had recognized the sovereignty of King George, they did consider themselves British subjects; however, the Founders did not consider themselves to have consented to be governed by the British Parliament. Logically why would they when so many of their ancestors who immigrated to the colonies had done so to escape the unfavorable and oppressive constraints of that very Parliament.

Not only the principles of common sense, but the common feelings of human nature, must be surrendered up before his majesty’s subjects here can be persuaded to believe that they hold their political existence at the will of a British parliament. Shall these governments be dissolved, their property annihilated, and their people reduced to a state of nature, at the imperious breath of a body of men, whom they never saw, in whom they never confided, and over whom they have no powers of punishment or removal, let their crimes against the American public be ever so great? Can any one reason be assigned why 160,000 electors in the island of Great Britain should give law to four millions in the states of America, every individual of whom is equal to every individual of them, in virtue, in understanding, and in bodily strength? Were this to be admitted, instead of being a free people, as we have hitherto supposed, and mean to continue ourselves, we should suddenly be found the slaves, not of one, but of 160,000 tyrants, distinguished too from all others by this singular circumstance, that they are removed from the reach of fear, the only restraining motive which may hold the hand of a tyrant.

 

ibid, paragraph 11. Thomas Jefferson’s A Summary View of the Rights of British America, 1774

Not only did Jefferson and the Founders view the acts of the British Parliament unconstitutional, but because the colonists had not consented to be governed by it Jefferson viewed these acts of British Parliament tyranny.

 

History has informed us that bodies of men, as well as individuals, are susceptible of the spirit of tyranny. A view of these acts of parliament for regulation, as it has been affectedly called, of the American trade, if all other evidence were removed out of the case, would undeniably evince the truth of this observation. Ibid.

The Preamble of the Declaration of Independence bears repeating when addressing Obama’s violations giving rise to this grievance.

”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, “

First, this statement recognizes inherent truth that the Rights of the individual come from our Creator, and not our government. Second, in order to protect our GOD given individual RIGHTS, the individuals may join together to form governments. Third, the power of governments exists only when and to the extent that the governed consent.

THEREFORE, any action that Obama has taken beyond the authority granted to the President and the Executive Branch constitutes a violation of these fundamental, immutable truths.

Any action taken by Obama that transfers governing authority to entities outside of the control of the people, especially the ability of the people to remove these entities from such governing position violates these truths and our Constitution.

Any action taken by Obama and his empowered agents that conflicts with or is intended as a substitute for the laws established by the Peoples’ governing authorities is a violation of the Constitution.

Any action taken by entities operating outside of the consent of the citizens of the United States that is not opposed or voided by Obama is, by default, his ascent to and furtherance of such actions, and a violation of our Constitution.

The history of the present Lord Obama 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 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”

Obama’s violations of these truths and the Constitution are broad in scope and increasing in number. In fact, Obama has labored hard in the vineyard of reducing United States power and subjugating the citizens of the United States to other jurisdictions. Among these, but by no means limited to, violations are:

Count 1 — In violation of the US Constitution, Obama placed the United States military under the authority and jurisdiction of the United Nations.

Count 2 — Obama granted an international law enforcement organization authority, Interpol, to operate in the United States outside limitations and constraints provided in our Civil Rights under the Constitution.

Count 3 — Obama circumvented and discarded the Bankruptcy Law of the United States, subjecting citizen creditors through force and intimidation and without recourse to a foreign jurisdiction of Obama’s own creation.

Count 4 —In violation of the US Constitution, Obama subordinated the United States to the United Nations in both the defining and control of human rights.

Count 5 — Obama combined with others in the unsettled theories and falsified science of the global warming community, and subjected the citizens to the regulations from Obama’s EPA. Obama’s EPA has passed by Executive Order regulations that were defeated in the Congress, the authorized and accountable governmental agent in these actions.

Count 6 – Obama’s appointment of numerous czars without the advice and consent of the Congress of violated Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution.

The above six counts are only a few examples of the numerous grievances against Obama that merit his removal from our governance, the most troubling of all is that Obama has subrogated the United States to the world. We will dig deeper into these 6 examples, in part 2.

    COUNT-7~~ The use of executive order to hold in abeyance the duly enacted laws of the land pertaining to the apprehension and deportation of illegal aliens ,by prohibiting said agencies form enforcing said laws, thereby granting amnesty to educationally enrolled illegals, resulting in arbitrarily negating the will of congress.

    Great job, Judy!!!! Must be something in that rural VA air that sparks the writing juices. Seems to have worked for Jefferson.

    Now you are destined for sure to inhabit hut #1369. (But JR said he would have some cookies there to share with you.)

    Sigh…since I am an avid cheerleader for you Judy, I guess they will just drive the “hut #1369 round up van up the Shenandoah Valley and and pick my arse up, too. (What kind of cookies you got, JR? Mmmm…cookies, I likes cookies…may I please have one, sir?

    The media is abuzz about a “Grand Bargain” deal being struck between Boehner and Obama. If true, that can only mean one thing — higher taxes to fund the Democrat’s destruction of this country for vague promises of future cuts that will never materialize. I have a feeling that conservatives are about to be royally screwed by the Republican leadership as they work to either muscle out and isolate the conservative wing of the Republican party.

    I’m trying not to be livid as no details have emerged, but it’s hard not to be angry as this country is crushed under endless debt of progressives from both parties.

    Jefferson’s Monticello is about 25 miles away and James Madison’s Montpelier is about 10 miles away. It must be the beauty of the Blue Ridge that inspires the desire to breathe free and break the bonds of tyranny.

    Tyranny comes on little cat feet,
    It doesn’t announce itself,it’s very discreet,
    It sits looking over harbor and city,
    There are those who thinks it’s pretty,
    But once ingrained,liberty is gone,
    On silent haunches it sits,then moves on.

    ~~~ODE TO THE SPEAKER~~~

    There once was a crybaby named boehner,
    As a man he still needs a potty trainer,
    A pretty orange colored dandy,
    He keeps a supply of fresh pampers handy,
    That he will cave in is a no brainer.

    There once was a nancy boy named boehner,
    A limp wristed lace pantied political entertainer,
    He would cry at the drop of the hat,
    Would this linguine spined shit house rat,
    As a saleman for depends he is a great campaigner.

    well God bless the S&P:
    If an agreement is reached to raise the debt ceiling but nothing meaningful is done in terms of deficit reduction, the U.S. would likely have its rating cut to the AA category S&P

    I hope the squishy Repubs are paying attention!

    absolutely, TLS…and reminds us of the true grievances we have against King Barry. I don’t expect King Barry to give any more of a damn than King George did. But at least we will have made our case plain…no matter what happens.

    In what certainly seems like four score and seven years ago, American voters, deceived by a man of a true nature most foul and his media propaganda ministers, brought forth, upon this Nation, a profoundly warped man, conceived who knows where for certain, who is dedicated to the proposition that all men are created weak and subservient to his every insane will and whim.

    Now we are engaged in a great battle, testing whether this nation, or any nation so burdened, and so assaulted, can long endure. We are met here on a great internet battlefield, with compatriots in the Tea Party Freedom Movement rallies, compatriots on the radio waves and the Rag-tag patriots of BeJohnGalt, of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of our lives in honor of our forefathers who dedicated their lives that this nation might live vigorous and free. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

    It is for us, the living, to be dedicated to the restoration of freedom, liberty, rule of law, progress and sanity which our Founders so nobly brought about. It is for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they so long ago gave the full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that our Founding Fathers shall not have labored in vain; that this nation shall have a rebirth of freedom and responsibility; and that this government will once again be of the people, by the people, for the people, and that we will not allow abominations like Barack Hussein Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and their gang of quislings to cause it, and it’s shinning light, to perish from the Earth.
