American Truth & True Americanism

Speaking Truth to Ours

"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." 2 Corinthians 3:17

"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men."--Sam Adams

"What shall be done with them?
Our answer is, do nothing with them; mind your business, and let them mind theirs. Your doing with them is their greatest misfortune. They have been undone by your doings, and all they now ask, and really have need of at your hands, is just to let them alone. They suffer by ever interference, and succeed best by being let alone. The Negro should have been let alone in Africa — let alone when pirates and robbers offered him for sale in our Christian slave markets — (more cruel and inhuman than the Mohammedan slave markets) — let alone by courts, judges, politicians, legislators and slave-drivers — let alone altogether, and assured that they were thus to be left alone forever, and that they must now make their own way in the world, just the same as any and every other variety of the human family. As colored men, we only ask to be allowed to do with ourselves, subject only to the same great laws for the welfare of human society which apply to other men, Jews, Gentiles, Barbarian, Sythian. Let us stand upon our own legs, work with our own hands, and eat bread in the sweat of our own brows. When you, our white fellow-countrymen, have attempted to do anyting for us, it has generally been to deprive us of some right, power or privilege which you yourself would die before you would submit to have taken from you. When the planters of the West Indies used to attempt to puzzle the pure-minded Wilberforce with the question, How shall we get rid of slavery? his simple answer was, “quit stealing.” In like manner, we answer those who are perpetually puzzling their brains with questions as to what shall be done with the Negro, “let him alone and mind your own business.” If you see him plowing in the open field, leveling the forest, at work with the spade, a rake a hoe, a pick-axe, or a bill — let him alone; he has a right to work. If you see him on his way to school, with spelling book, geography and arithmetic in his hands — let him alone. Don’t shut the door in his face, nor bolt your gates against him; he has a right to learn — let him alone. Don’t pass laws to degrade him. If he has a ballot in his hand, and is on his way to the ballot-box to deposit his vote for the man whom he think will most justly and wisely administer the Government which has the power of life and death over him, as well as others — let him alone; his right of choice as much deserves respect and protection as your own. If you see him on his way to the church, exercising religious liberty in accordance with this or that religious persuasion — let him alone. –Don’t meddle with him, nor trouble yourselves with any questions as to what shall be done with him.
The great majority of human duties are of this negative character. If men were born in need of crutches, instead of having legs, the fact would be otherwise. We should then be in need of help, and would require outside aide; but according to the wiser and better arrangement of nature, our duty is done better by not hindering than by helping our fellow-men; or, in other words, the best way to help them is just to let them help themselves."--Frederick Douglass, Jan. 1862
"AND NOW, FRIENDS AND COUNTRYMEN, if the wise and learned philosophers of the elder world, the first observers of nutation and aberration, the discoverers of maddening ether and invisible planets, the inventors of Congreve rockets and Shrapnel shells, should find their hearts disposed to enquire what has America done for the benefit of mankind?

Let our answer be this: America, with the same voice which spoke herself into existence as a nation, proclaimed to mankind the inextinguishable rights of human nature, and the only lawful foundations of government. America, in the assembly of nations, since her admission among them, has invariably, though often fruitlessly, held forth to them the hand of honest friendship, of equal freedom, of generous reciprocity.

She has uniformly spoken among them, though often to heedless and often to disdainful ears, the language of equal liberty, of equal justice, and of equal rights.

She has, in the lapse of nearly half a century, without a single exception, respected the independence of other nations while asserting and maintaining her own.

She has abstained from interference in the concerns of others, even when conflict has been for principles to which she clings, as to the last vital drop that visits the heart.

She has seen that probably for centuries to come, all the contests of that Aceldama the European world, will be contests of inveterate power, and emerging right.

Wherever the standard of freedom and Independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions and her prayers be.

But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.

She will commend the general cause by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example.

She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom.

The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force.... She might become the dictatress of the world. She would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit....

[America’s] glory is not dominion, but liberty. Her march is the march of the mind. She has a spear and a shield: but the motto upon her shield is, Freedom, Independence, Peace. This has been her Declaration: this has been, as far as her necessary intercourse with the rest of mankind would permit, her practice."

--John Quincy Adams, 1821

"You may call me selfish if you will, conservative or reactionary, or use any other harsh adjective you see fit to apply, but an American I was born, an American I have remained all my life. I can never be anything else but an American, and I must think of the United States first, and when I think of the United States first in an arrangement like this I am thinking of what is best for the world, for if the United States fails, the best hopes of mankind fail with it
I have never had but one allegiance - I cannot divide it now.  I have loved but one flag and I cannot share that devotion and give affection to the mongrel banner invented for a league.  Internationalism, illustrated by the Bolshevik and by the men to whom all countries are alike provided they can make money out of them, is to me repulsive.

National I must remain, and in that way I like all other Americans can render the amplest service to the world.  The United States is the world's best hope, but if you fetter her in the interests and quarrels of other nations, if you tangle her in the intrigues of Europe, you will destroy her power for good and endanger her very existence.  Leave her to march freely through the centuries to come as in the years that have gone.

Strong, generous, and confident, she has nobly served mankind.  Beware how you trifle with your marvellous inheritance, this great land of ordered liberty, for if we stumble and fall freedom and civilization everywhere will go down in ruin."--Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge on the League of Nations

"It may be, that in ages so remote that we cannot now understand any of the feelings of those who will dwell in them, patriotism will no longer be regarded as a virtue, exactly as it may be that in those remote ages people will look down upon and disregard monogamic marriage; but as things now are and have been for two or three thousand years past, and are likely to be for two or three thousand years to come, the words "home" and "country" mean a great deal. Nor do they show any tendency to lose their significance. At present, treason, like adultery, ranks as one of the worst of all possible crimes.

One may fall very far short of treason and yet be an undesirable citizen in the community. The man who becomes Europeanized, who loses his power of doing good work on this side of the water, and who loses his love for his native land, is not a traitor; but he is a silly and undesirable citizen. He is as emphatically a noxious element in our body politic as is the man who comes here from abroad and remains a foreigner. Nothing will more quickly or more surely disqualify a man from doing good work in the world than the acquirement of that flaccid habit of mind which its possessors style 'cosmopolitanism'.

It is not only necessary to Americanize the immigrants of foreign birth who settle among us, but it is even more necessary for those among us who are by birth and descent already Americans not to throw away our birthright, and, with incredible and contemptible folly, wander back to bow down before the alien gods whom our forefathers forsook. It is hard to believe that there is any necessity to warn Americans that, when they seek to model themselves on the lines of other civilizations, they make themselves the butts of all right-thinking men; and yet the necessity certainly exists to give this warning to many of our citizens who pride themselves on their standing in the world of art and letters, or, perchance, on what they would style their social leadership in the community. It is always better to be an original than an imitation, even when the imitation is of something better than the original; but what shall we say of the fool who is content to be an imitation of something worse? Even if the weaklings who seek to be other than Americans were right in deeming other nations to be better than their own, the fact yet remains that to be a first-class American is fifty-fold better than to be a second-class imitation of a Frenchman or Englishman. As 'a matter of fact, however, those of our countrymen who do believe in American inferiority are always individuals who, however cultivated, have some organic weakness in their moral or mental make-up; and the great mass of our people, who are robustly patriotic, and who have sound, healthy minds, are justified in regarding these feeble renegades with a half-impatient and half-amused scorn." --Teddy Roosevelt,

"...[W]hen swearing in new ambassadors, I used to take them over to the big globe in the secretary of state's office and ask them to point out their country. Almost invariably they would rotate the globe and point to their post, wherever in the world. I would then tell them that when I made this request of Senator Mike Mansfield, then American ambassador to Japan, he spun the globe, put his finger on the United States, and said, "This is my country!""--Secretary of State George P. Shultz

"I mean to stand upon the Constitution. I need no other platform. I shall know but one country. The ends I aim at shall be my country's, my God's, and Truth's. I was born an American; I live an American; I shall die an American; and I intend to perform the duties incumbent upon me in that character to the end of my career. I mean to do this with absolute disregard of personal consequences. What are the personal consequences? What is the individual man, with all the good or evil that may betide him, in comparison with the good or evil which may befall a great country, and in the midst of great transactions which concern that country's fate? Let the consequences be what they will, I am careless. No man can suffer too much, and no man can fall too soon, if he suffer, or if he fall, in the defense of the liberties and constitution of his country.”--Sen. Daniel Webster

Webster, seated, listens thoughtfully to Clay
"I congratulate you and my country on the singular favor of heaven in the peaceable and auspicious settlement of our government upon a Constitution formed by wisdom, and sanctified by the solemn choice of the people who are to live under it. May the Supreme ruler of the world be pleased to establish and perpetuate these new foundations of liberty and glory....Thank God, my country is saved and by the smile of Heaven I am a free and independent man."--John Hancock, Real Resistance Patriot, Shipper, Signer, Revolutionary, Businessman and America's first President under the Articles

Manufactured News Network's "Weakened At Bernie's" Entertainment Update: The Mueller Years Edition

"MNN: Insert James Earl Jones Here."

Tonight's Show is Sponsored by Democrats: "If we only share our maniacal yet tedious impeachment obsession with you dullards one more time, you will certainly want to join our deranged cult this time!" 

(Los Angeles, Mexico) After wowing crowds in the nation's capital, Dirty Cop Bob Mueller took his Uncle Leo-LEO-act on the road, appearing on "America's Got Talent, But Washington D.C.--Not So Much" at the Dolby Noise Reduction Wiretap Theater.

Dirty Bob told the baffled judges "When witnesses appeared before my team and claimed that they didn't know, didn't care, couldn't remember and wouldn't say 2,483 times like I did yesterday, we charged them with false statements. Therefore, in the interest of fairness, I am charging myself with perjury. Now, where's Paula Abdul? I was promised Paula Abdul!"

All 37 of Mueller's handlers, fixers, baby-sitters, Swamp Dwellers, professional liars, associates, minders, sherpas, toadies, Clinton donors, life coaches, bodyguards, body men, confidence men, bagmen, bag ladies, ladies of the night, night crawlers, backstairs crawlers and commissars all scrambled to the microphone to say Bob Mueller was not, in fact, within Bob Mueller's purview.

According to witnesses not hired by John Brennan, they grabbed Mueller and threw him into Hillary's campaign ambulance and drove away, to his anguished sobs; "...but Andrew promised me Abdul!"
Snopes: The Stooges were not German Party-members as previously thought

...they were Japanese spies!

(Babylon, Akkadia) After several tawdry episodes of "fact-checking" jokes made at the Christian satire site "The Babylon Bee", Snopes has decided to go full-Groucho and begin "fact-checking" comedy acts in order to protect the weak-minded and unsuspecting public from dangerous and unverified punchlines. Or as Snopes likes to call them, "punch-lies".

Here are some of Snopes' vitally important findings: 

* The Cone of Silence: Neither Cone-shaped nor Silent--but who will tell the People?
* Alice Kramden never actually made a moon-landing.
* Who is on first and What is on second, but I Don't Know is now captain of the Women's Soccer Team.
*  Henny Youngman did not, as a matter of fact, want you to take his wife.
*  Historians now agree: Sgt. Schultz knew somethink, but was too inhibited by the social pressures of his time and place to express it.
* "Fronkensteen" is actually pronounced "Frankenstein" after all.
* Achmed the Dead Terrorist is not really going to "keel you" or anybody else.

(Hollyweed, CA) Tonight is a Red Carpet evening in Tinsel Town, as Hollywood stars gather to celebrate their own bravery against the Trumpening at the 82nd Annual Enema Awards. They will present the special Irving J. Thalium Award, celebrating the Unique Conscience of the Individual Artist As Long As He Remains Within the Strict Confines of the Herd. DiCaprio is favored.

Due to #MeToo -concerns, no living actors were willing to host the show. In desperation, producers hired Zombie Rodney Dangerfield.

Like Mueller's cellphone in the Oval Office, our microphones were there:

"What's so wrong with telling someone to leave the country? They're mad at the president, but half the actors in Hollywood have told themselves "You need to pack your bags, get out of America and don't come back!" De Niro, Streisand, Clooney--they all told themselves to get the hell out of the country! That fat girl who steals everybody's jokes--what's her name--yeah; Chuck Schumer! They all  promised they would get out! But none of them have done it!"

I can't give no respect."

In this famous photo, Elvis asks Rodney for a DEA badge.

Hey, Snopes: Actually, Rodney does get respect. Fact-check yourselves, Fraud Squad.

You Said It, Bro! John Quincy and Us...UPDATED!

With Surprise Guest Appearance by Ray Chalz, baby! "...why don't we deport you to where ever you came from?"--Rep. Ilhan Omar-Said said to her critics, 2012 "Deport this asshole!"--Rep. Diaper Rashida Tlaib, referring to Donald Trump, 2015 “It is absolutely racist and un-American. And it is an old trope, ‘go back to where you came from,’"--Sen. Kamala Harris, obviously denouncing Reps. Tlaib and Omar-Said "People can disagree over politics and policy, but telling American citizens to go back to where they came from is over the line."--Mitt Romney, piling on the gals

"Your Swamp does not amuse us."
He watched the Battle of Bunker Hill from atop the barn of his parents, John and Abigail Adams. At 10, he was in the courts of Europe with father John. At 14, he was already a Revolutionary diplomat. Ambassador to Russia, Prussia, the Netherlands, England. Lawyer. Harvard professor. Spoke many languages including Latin. State senator then US senator. The only Federalist to support the Louisiana Purchase. Supported Clay's American System of commerce. Secured Florida after his future nemesis Andy Jackson's victories there, wrote several peace treaties including the War of 1812, and as Secretary of State, he authored the Monroe Doctrine. Won the presidency, then 9 terms as a House member, breaking the House's Gag Rule on abolitionism, winning freedom for the ship Amistad's slaves in the Supreme Court, he established the Smithsonian and raised Diplomat Charles Frances Adams. And, yes, he had a pet alligator.

You see, America once had a Ruling Class that was worth a damn.

President John Quincy Adams, then Secretary of State, in an 1819 letter to Herr von Fiirstenwarther of Germany, who was seeking government favors for coming here:

“Emigrants…coming here, are not to expect favors from the governments. …They come to a life of independence, but [also] to a life of labor—and, if they cannot accommodate themselves to the character--moral, political, and physical, of this country, with all its compensating balances of good and evil, the Atlantic is always open to them, to return to the land of their nativity and their fathers.”
"aka Nur Said Elmi Mohamed"

Even if their father is an Islamo-Marxist war criminal on the lam, who commited immigration fraud, having bought the use of the family name "Omar" because authorities were on the lookout for "Said" (Sayeed). 

In fairness, at least he never married a sibling. Probably.

"...and then come back and show us how it's done. And, Seb-- could you bring me back some lederhosen?"
If Shabby Nadler can demand Sebastian Gorka's deportation as a Nazi sympathizer (which he is not), why can’t Rep. Ilhan Said be removed as an Islamo-Nazi sympathizer (which she certainly is!)?

And shouldn't we at least use her real name, which is Ilhan Said?

Ray Charles thinks so.

"Tell Me What, I. Said"
Hey mama, don't treat us wrong
Why do you hate this country all night long?
All right now, hey hey, all right

See the girl with the wedding rings
She knows all about the bigamy-thing
All right now now now, hey hey, hey hey

Tell Col. Said, who you call "Pa"
I'm gonna send you back to Somalia
Oh yes, ma'm, you don't do right, don't do right
Aw, play it now, Pa

When you see me in the visa line
Come on, sis, help me get mine
Now yeah, all fraud, all the time, aw play it, bro

When you see a Blackhawk Down
That's when its time to sneak out of town 
Now yeah, hey hey, all right

See the girl with the head dress on
She can play the victim all night long
Yeah yeah, what I. Said, all right

Well, tell me, Ilhan Said 
Tell me what,  I. Said, right now
Tell me what, I. Sayeed
Tell me what,  I. Said, right now
Tell me what,  I. Said
Tell me what, I. Said, yeah
My Brother Ray

He Ain't Heavy, He's My Elmi--UPDATE: 
BREAKING: Rep. Omar and husband to divorce, agree to see other siblings

Mincing Quincys-UPDATE:
Soros and Koch have spawned, creating a new org called the Quincy Institute
dedicated to destroying everything John Quincy Adams 
worked his whole life to build. 
He was an American patriot, not a Tower-of-Babel Globalist. 
In a town where the Anti-Trust think-tanks are funded by Google, 
it's not surprising that a Nazi art-dealer and his best customer 
would collude to steal John Quincy's good name. If they happen to quote JQA saying 
"[America] goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy"
it is only to protect the Ayatollah or their profits, not you.

Don't be fooled.
