Never let a super-anything superimpose itself on a free world

The Battle for Freedom Continues Today

I just watched Battleground (1949). The film portrayed the men fighting in 1945 in Bastogne, France during the Battle of the Bulge. The Chaplains message still warns us today:

We must never again let any force dedicated to a super-race…
or a super-idea, or super-anything…
become strong enough to impose itself upon a free world.

In the film, the Chaplain’s message at Christmas 1945 answers why we must fight against people and ideas that would enslave us or kill us. There is no compromise between food and poison, there is no compromise between life and death, there is no compromise between our super intrusive government and the Freedom to follow your Faith, care for your Family, celebrate with your Friends or work and build with your Fellowships without interference.

As you read the Chaplain’s words, think today of ISIS, think today of radical Islam and think today of our Super-Government that glorifies gay marriage while ignoring murder.

The Chaplain’s Message – Christmas 1945

Watch the message

These services aren’t just for Lutherans, any more than just for men from Ohio.
I merely happen to be in your area.
In other areas, there are other chaplains of various denominations and religions.
All of us Holy Joes are switch-hitters. Earlier this month in Holland,
I held Hanukkah services for some of the men of the Jewish faith.
How did I do, Levenstein?
Not bad for a beginner, sir.
Now it’s nearly Christmas and here we are in beautiful Bastogne enjoying the winter sports.
And the $64 question is:
“Was this trip necessary?”
I’ll try to answer that.
But my sermons, like everything else in the army depend on the situation and the terrain.
So I assure you this is going to be a quickie.
Was this trip necessary?
Let’s look at the facts.
Nobody wanted this war but the Nazis.
A great many people tried to deal with them, and a lot of them are dead.
Millions have died for no other reason
except that the Nazis wanted them dead.
So, in the final showdown, there was nothing left to do except fight.
There’s a great lesson in this.
Those of us who’ve learned it the hard way aren’t going to forget it.
We must never again let any force dedicated to a super-race…
or a super-idea, or super-anything…
become strong enough to impose itself upon a free world.
We must be smart enough and tough enough in the beginning…
to put out the fire before it starts spreading.
So my answer to the $64 question is:
Yes, this trip was necessary.
As the years go by, a lot of people are going to forget.
But you won’t.
And don’t ever let anybody tell you…
you were a sucker to fight in the war against Fascism.
And now, Jerry permitting, let us pray.
Let us pray for this fog to lift.
Almighty God…
The artillery is hitting those bass notes a little too loud for me to be heard.
So let us each pray in his own way, to his own God.
When you hear planes, men, don’t bother to look up.
They’ll be ours.

Re-Declaration of Independence

July 19th, 2015

Hi all,

I took America’s Declaration of Independence and substituted in “leadership”, “current President” and “States” and it reads like a current editorial describing how far the Government has intruded into our lives.

Take a read and see which bullet point inspires you to help take back the country.

~~~

Your call to action is the paragraph on your right to freedom:

  • We, therefore, the people of the United States of America, in General Community, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these States, solemnly publish and declare, that these Peoples of the United States are, and of right ought to be free and independent of the growing Government.

To fight for your freedom, please join the group that is following our Constitution to re-declare our independence.

Go to and join:

 The Call for a Convention of States

Re-Declaration of Independence

The Unanimous Declaration of the Free Thinking People of United States of America

When, the course of human events, it becomes necessary for a governed people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with their leadership, 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 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 elected, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of leadership becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to elect new leadership, 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 leadership long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that people are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by removing establishments 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 leadership and to provide new leadership to guard their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of decent tolerant working people; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former system of leadership.
  • The history of the current President of these United States 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 meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
  • He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration 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 of bureaucrats without the consent of our legislature.
  • He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to 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 assenting to large bodies of selected groups among us.
  • For protecting them, by 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 benefits of trial by jury.
  • For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses.
  • For abolishing the free system of laws in a local jurisdictions for an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule in these States.
  • 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 disparaging particular individuals.
  • He has restricted our seas, blocked us from our coasts, nationalized our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
  • He is at this time consorting with large bodies of foreign bureaucrats to complete the works of desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally un-worth the head of a civilized nation.
  • He has constrained our fellow citizens under threat of bankruptcy to bear down against their country, to become the watchers of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.
  • He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring the government to control all individuals undistinguished by 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 attention to our Establishment 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.

  • We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind accountable for tyranny and noteworthy for restraint.
  • We, therefore, the people of the United States of America, in General Community, assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people of these States, solemnly publish and declare, that these Peoples of the United States are, and of right ought to be free and independent of the growing Government.
  • That they are absolved from all allegiance to this Administration, and that all political connection between them and the current Statist Oppressors, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent States, they have full power to vote out the current Establishment, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent Free People 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.

Ed Kulis became a conservative in college after reading Ayn Rand.

The three functions of government are:

Police – To deal with criminals

Military – To deal with threats to our country

Courts – To resolve our contract disputes

Anything else that the government does is tyranny because they take money from you without your consent.
