VIDEO Temporary or Permanent Fix? – Veritas Win In Defamation Lawsuit

By Reverend Paul N. Papas II

March 30, 2021

You probably don’t need a list of issues that need your attention.

If you’ve had a plumber in to discuss his solution to your bathroom leak you’ll understand.  The quick-fix may turn out to be much more costly in the long run…and may not work at all.

Different people have different thoughts on how to address or resolve an issue and that is perfectly acceptable. We have a right to express our thoughts and ideas. We don’t have any right to require anyone else to adopt our beliefs.

There is a trend today to shut down differing ideas. May I suggest that we spend perhaps half as much time listening to differing ideas as we do shutting those down who disagree with us? We just might find common areas of agreement.

There is also a trend to replace our long held system of government with something that has failed every time that it was adopted.  Our long held system of government provides for corrections and changes. The proposed system endorses one thought and one solution with disagreements met with harsh retribution.  You can vote yourselves into socialism; you cannot vote yourself out of socialism.

Most are aware of Ben Franklin’s famous reply when asked as he emerged from the convention, “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

It is of utmost importance to hear and now understand that “Democracy” is not found in any Founding Document, and “Socialism” is not found in any founding document, much less “Socialist Democracy”!!

Franklin’s alleged description of Democracy is “two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.” Thomas Jefferson is alleged by some to have said, “Democracies are dangerous because a Democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Because of that understanding the United States was formed as a Republic.

Socialism is government regulation and controls all aspects of our personal life and businesses. Combining Democracy and Socialism is doubling up on the evils of both. So-called “Democratic Socialism” would completely wipe away the Constitutional Republic which we were given. Individual Freedom with control over our own lives and property would be gone forever under Socialism.

The United States was formed as a Republic by design, with limits upon the government set forth in our Constitution, in order to substantially limit the government’s power and to protect our “natural individual rights.” Our rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness are “natural,” not government-allowed. We formed our government; it did not form us.

Individual Freedom is your right or power to act, speak, or think as you want without hindrance or restraint in your “life” and complete “liberty” to “pursue your own happiness.”

Socialism or “Democratic Socialism” is the exact opposite of a Constitutional Republic. Your life, lived with the liberty to pursue your happiness unhindered and unrestrained, is not allowed in a Socialist government. The movement to destroy our Constitutional Republic and replace it with a Socialist government is led by those people who identify themselves as Democratic Socialists, Communists, Progressives, Liberals, and others. The most common in the United States presently are “Democratic Socialists” and “Progressives.” No matter what the label, make no mistake; all are Socialist or Communist in some form and will eventually lead to complete control of the way we are allowed to live.

Going back to the plumber and the bathroom, right now the water is running full blast and the drain is not connected. The water is out of control and causing damage in its wake. The shut off value is stuck open.  The permanent fix requires new drain pipes and a working shut off value. The temporary fix might be to put extra towels on the floor.

Another problem under socialism is that fear, anxiety, and depression become the normal way of life for the masses.

Let’s just say NO to socialism and YES to our Constitutional Republic.

Trump impeachment II: George Washington warned about political factions

Maybe it’s just me, but I am starting to come to the conclusion that Nancy Pelosi just doesn’t like President Donald Trump. She seems to have been the driving force behind Trump Impeachment II.

Jeff Charles of Red State calls it: “the Democrats’ new production of ‘An Impeachment Story Part II: Maybe It’ll Work This Time.’”

Impeachment is a Constitutional provision to potentially remove a sitting president. But, of course, now Trump is a private citizen. Where is the Chief Justice? He is supposed to preside over a legitimate impeachment hearing. But Chief Roberts will have nothing to do with this farce.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul says, “The Constitution says two things about impeachment — it is a tool to remove the officeholder, and it must be presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.”

Instead, notes Paul, this is an act by “hyper-partisan Democrats,” who have a “deranged hatred” against the former president. He adds that they are “wasting the nation’s time.”

Did the president receive due process during the House trial against him a couple of weeks ago? No, says John Eidsmoe, constitutional attorney and prolific author.

Eidsmoe wrote an open letter to the Senate: “As an attorney and law professor who has practiced and taught Constitutional Law for many decades, I strongly oppose the proposal to impeach and convict President Donald J. Trump and bar him from holding public office.”

Eidsmoe’s reasons include that the charges are factually baseless. For example, Trump is being accused of causing an insurrection because he held a rally in D.C. on January 6th, outlining once again why he thought the election was stolen.

The former president told his supporters at the rally: “We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated.  I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” [Emphasis added]

It is important to note that the breach of the Capitol had already begun before Trump even told his followers to “peacefully” go over there (about a 25-minute walk away). He didn’t say anything about violence, vandalism, or mayhem. He wasn’t leading an Antifa rally or the like.

What is happening in our country is a nightmare our first president warned about —factionalism taking over.

The father of our country, George Washington, issued some parting wisdom in his Farewell Address, printed in newspapers beginning September 19, 1796. The U. S. Senate Historical Office has posted the Farewell Address.

They note: “He believed that the stability of the Republic was threatened by the forces of geographical sectionalism, political factionalism, and interference by foreign powers in the nation’s domestic affairs. He urged Americans to subordinate sectional jealousies to common national interests. Writing at a time before political parties had become accepted as vital extraconstitutional, opinion-focusing agencies, Washington feared that they carried the seeds of the nation’s destruction through petty factionalism.” [Emphasis added].

In his day, there were not the fully developed political parties as we’ve seen in America since. If you had to categorize him party-wise, he would have been a Federalist, in contrast with the Democrat Party (initially the Republican Democrat Party, just to confuse things) that arose with Thomas Jefferson and New Yorker Aaron Burr, later a traitor to America.

Here’s what Washington said in the Farewell Address, regarding putting party-loyalty above country-loyalty: “The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.”

Public liberty today is at risk because of the rise of the petty factionalists. Gary Bauer points out that in recent times both Senate Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi are on record potentially inciting violence — far more than Trump’s remarks to “peacefully and patriotically make your voice heard.” For example, Pelosi said, “I just don’t even know why there aren’t uprisings all over the country” against Trump.

Meanwhile, Trump’s legal team wrote a letter, explaining why he was not going to appear to testify in person at this week’s sham impeachment hearing. Their February 4, 2021 letter closes: “The use of our Constitution to bring a purported impeachment proceeding is much too serious to try to play these games.” I think George Washington would agree.
