Washington, Lincoln & Thanks To God

Thanksgiving Proclamations

Our great, national, holiday of Thanksgiving is again upon us! I think it would be in the best interests of your readers to print one or both of the presidential thanksgiving proclamations reproduced below between now and that celebration so dear to so many families in this land---And, remind all of the historical and real meaning of that day.

GEORGE WASHINGTON’S THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION – 1789:

“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly implore His protection and favor; and whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of Public Thanksgiving and Prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

“Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the twenty-six of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that Great and Glorious Being, who is the Beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country, previous to their becoming a nation; for the single manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of His providence, in the courage and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish Constitutions of Government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now instituted; for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

“And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the Great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether
in public or private institutions, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a government of wise,
just, and constitutional laws, discretely and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us) and to bless them with good governments,
peace and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science, among them and us; and generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity an He alone knows to be best.”

Proclamation of Thanksgiving
by the President of the United States of America

The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful years and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the Source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.

In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign states to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict, while that theater has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the field of peaceful industry to the national defense have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship; the ax has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than theretofore. Population has steadily increased notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege, and the battlefield, and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom.

No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners, or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility, and union.

In testimony wherof I have herunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

[Signed]
A. Lincoln

Benefits Of Anonymous Statements

Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the bill of rights, and of the first amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation– and their ideas from suppression– at the hand of an intolerant society.
***
Though often maligned (typically by those frustrated by an inability to engage in ad hominem attacks) anonymous speech has a long and storied history in the United States. Used by the likes of Mark Twain (aka Samuel Langhorne Clemens) [and the founding fathers in the Federalist Papers], we think ourselves in good company in using one or another nom de plume. Particularly in light of an emerging trend against vocalizing public dissent in the United States, we believe in the critical importance of anonymity and its role in dissident speech. like the Economist magazine, we also believe that keeping authorship anonymous moves the focus of discussion to the content of speech and away from the speaker- as it should be.”


Anonymous Source

[Historians should note the use of "Broadsides" in the era just before our first Revolution when signing off on them might well result in criminal prosecution by Royal officials. Today, such politically incorrect statements, when the authors are known, has resulted in persecution of the authors or supporters.]

Democrats & "Russian" (?) Hacking

The Democratic (sic) continues to vomit-out screes, whines and other evidences of pathology about “Russian Hacking”.

Having an intellect superior to most I fully understand the reasons basic to their sniveling.

Their ire is not about any danger-to or, even, attack-on the sanctity of our election system. After all, it has survived the corrupt Tammany Hall and the Chicago Democrat machine.

The reasons for their projection-of-guilt include, but are not limited-to, the following: The “Russians” (If, and only if, they were the primary hackers) were able to break into only their systems as:

  1. Clearly re-enforced the proof that such as H. Clinton were unable or unwilling to protect secretes for both their Party and, by I inference, for the protection of the American People if allowed full access to to state secretes; And,
  2. Among the information derived, directly or indirectly, from that hacking was the DNC's conspiracy against Senator “Bernie” Sanders and the advance leading of presidential debate questions to Ms. Clinton's staff---Which was a direct attack on our presidential selection system.

John Wesley On Islam/Muslims

“Ever since the religion of Islam appeared in the world, the espousers of it have been as wolves and tigers to all other nations, rending and tearing all that fell into their merciless paws, and grinding them with their iron teeth; that numberless cities are raised from the foundation, and only their name remaining; that many countries, which were once as the garden of God, are now a desolate wilderness; and that so many once numerous and powerful nations vanished from the earth ! Such was, and is at this day, the rage, the fury, the revenge, of these destroyers of human kind.” (John Wesley)

CONSTITUTIONAL "DUE PROCESS"---UPDATED

CONSTITUTIONAL “DUE PROCESS”
IN
ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSES

  1. Right to prior notice-of/access-to the: “Charges” against the citizen; Law/rules/regulations alleged to be violated; The names and other identifying information of all witnesses who have provided testimony or other evidence; Documents/physical-evidence as to the “charges”.
  2. The right to compel personal testimony of witnesses and to have that testimony given on oath/affirmation (Allowing for criminal or civil punishment for perjury/false-swearing if such is inflicted).
  3. The right to confront witnesses AND to cross-examine them.
  4. The right to a hearing before a neutral hearing examiner.
  5. The right to a written decision from that examiner.
  6. The right to appeal any such decision to a court-of-law based on the facts, the law and on state and federal constitutions.

When employed by a State department-of-corrections I was a “Preliminary Hearing Officer” in hearings as to motions to revoke the parole/probation of convicted criminals. The above were the rights given to those persons.


[At the least, those rights should/must be given to presumed, law-abiding, students facing university or college disciplinary actions/hearings.]

"PARTISAN = DEMOCRACY"

I continue to be concerned about the ranting people who complain about “Partisan” politics! They fail to understand the following equation PARTISAN = DEMOCRACY (Or are waging a Fascist campaign-or-Jihad against democracy and the USA).

“Partisan” is shorthand for the differences in our fellow citizen's views on what should be the laws, policies, and practices of our government(s). It also represents the differences in who should be our elected officials and, through some of them, who is appointed to be judges, SCOTUS justices and policy making-and-executing officials.


In recent years those partisan differences have: Resulted in the constitutional election of President Donald J. Trump (Who received a majority of votes if Berkeley-style-mob ruled California election results are discounted); Ongoing control of The Congress by the GOP; And a steady increase in the number of State Houses and State legislatures by Republicans.

Adopt A Violent Illegal Immigrant Letter

Do you know any Democrats, Federal Judges, Editors and others of that ilk who should get this letter?

Dear Mrs. Johnson:

Thank you for your many letters demanding our attempts to deport illegal immigrants with criminal records out of the USA.

President Trump takes these matters seriously and your opinions were
 heard loud and clear here in our nation's capitol. You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of Homeland Security, to be called “Liberals Accept Responsibility for Illegal-Violent Criminals”.

In accordance with the guidelines of this new
 program, we have decided, on a trial basis, to divert several such violent, illegal immigrants and place them in homes of concerned citizens such as yourself, around the country, under those citizens personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence on Monday.

Jorge Gonzales y Ramos is your detainee, and is to be cared for
 pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint. You will be pleased to know that we will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with your recommendations.

Although Jorge is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his 'attitudinal problem' will help him overcome those character flaws. Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counseling and home schooling, however, we strongly recommend that you hire some assistant caretakers.

Since this immigrant refused to learn English you will be required to hire (At your own cost) a translator.

Please advise any Anglo friends, neighbors or relatives about your house guest, as he might get agitated or even violent in their presence, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless in your opinion, this might offend him. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in prison-yard combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills either in your home or wherever you choose to take him while helping him adjust to life in our country.

Even in prison Jorge was able to obtain a large variety of dangerous and illegal drugs. It would be best if you did not eat or drink anything that he has been able to access.
As Jorge has been convicted of rape and sexual abuse of little girls he will not wish to interact with you or your daughters except sexually, since he views females as a form of property, thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands.

You take good care of Jorge and remember that we will try to have a
 counselor available to help you over any difficulties you encounter while Ahmed is adjusting to the culture of our nation,

Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you
 keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. Good luck and God bless you.

Presidents Protecting Daughters

The "Hate Trump Lobby" has been attacked our democratically elected President's through his daughter as to her clothing line. 

Those critters are ignorant of the history of our presidents. (Although a Republican, I considered Harry S. Truman the best and most honest of the last century's presidents.) Music critic Paul Hume panned a concert preformed by Margaret Truman. The letter provided below was sent to Mr. Hume by Mr. Truman.

I cannot but wonder what rage would be provided by the DNC's slaves (The “Lame Street Media”) if President Trump would copy President Truman's declaration!

Of course, much of those professional-haters' attack are likely based on a well-deserved sense of inferiority based on their malfeasance as compared to the President's daughter's prior successes.

Of course, this is only one proof of their general ignorance and dishonesty as to democracy, the Constitution and the November, 2016 election (Where, outside of mob-ruled California, President Trump did get a majority of votes AND
other popular votes have increased and maintained the GOP's control over The Congress and as continues to march towards an even greater control of State Houses and State legislatures). 



THE WHITE HOUSE
WASHINGTON
Dec. 6, 1950
Mr. Hume:
     I've just read your lousy review of Margaret's concert. I've come to the conclusion that you are an "eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay." It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you're off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.
Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you'll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!
      Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you'll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.
H.S.T.

The Democrat's "Main Stream"

 "BOTOX" Pelosi and other "leaders" of the Democratic (sic) Party continue to vomit out the term "Main Stream". She and those other, self-poisoned, Democrats have ridden their stream to a constitutional election of President Trump (With a majority of the popular vote if California were not counted) AND, what is much more important, based on popular votes:
  1. The GOP's ongoing control of The Congress; And,
  1. A steady Republican take over of the USA's State Houses and State legislatures.

As a Republican I must thank such critters (And their co-actors) for supporting the future victories of my Party.

The last time I saw-and-smelled a stream like unto the Democrat's “main stream” was during my one (And last) visit to the "Chicago Sanitary Canal" which dumps that city's filth (Unfortunately not including its armed gang members, Democrat administration and other criminals) towards the Mississippi River.


The election of President Trump allows of a new "Clean Water Stream" as will be the preferred "Main Stream" for the voyages of more voters to the only real polls to cast ballots for Republicans.

Adopt A Terrorist Letter

Dear Concerned Citizen,

Thank you for your many letters as to our attempts to stop “unvetted” immigrants from that minority of Muslim-majority nations which produce so many terrorists.

President Trump takes these matters seriously and your opinions were
 heard loud and clear here in our nation's capitol. You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of Homeland Security, to be called 'Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers' program, or L.A.R.K. for short.

In accordance with the guidelines of this new
 program, we have decided, on a trial basis, to divert several terrorists and place them in homes of concerned citizens such as yourself, around the country, under those citizens personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Monday.

Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud is your detainee, and is to be cared for
 pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint. You will be pleased to know that we will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with your recommendations.

Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his 'attitudinal problem' will help him overcome those character flaws. Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counseling and home schooling, however, we strongly recommend that you hire some assistant caretakers.


Since this immigrant refused to learn English you will be required to hire (At your own cost) a translator.

Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbors or relatives about your house guest, as he might get agitated or even violent in their presence, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless in your opinion, this might offend him. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills either in your home or wherever you choose to take him while helping him adjust to life in our country.

Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters except sexually,
 since he views females as a form of property, thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him. If you take him to your cousins' farms, it would be best to keep him away from sheep and goats.

You also should know that he has shown violent tendencies around women who
 fail to comply with the dress code that he will recommend as more appropriate attire. I'm sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of respecting his culture and religious beliefs' as described in your letter.

You take good care of Ahmed and remember that we will try to have a
 counselor available to help you over any difficulties you encounter while Ahmed is adjusting to the culture of our nation,

Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you
 keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. Good luck and God bless you.
