The Redlands Tea Party Patriots Salute Martin Luther King for Upholding the Constitution and America’s Founding Principle That All Men Are Created Equal published on

THE REDLANDS TEA PARTY PATRIOTS SALUTE MARTIN LUTHER KING FOR UPHOLDING THE CONSTITUTION AND AMERICA’S FOUNDING PRINCIPLE THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL
MLK 06  MLK 01MLK 03

The Declaration of Independence states:

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,…

This is the foundation of American liberty and the Constitution, which is the foundation agreement for how we govern ourselves as free people. It is the “why” of America.

The 2nd Amendment provides “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

The 14th Amendment guaranties due process and equal protection. The 14 Amendment was intended to grant equality before the law to the newly freed slaves.

The 15th Amendment guaranties the right to vote could not be abridged on account of race. The 15 Amendment was intended to grant the newly freed slaves the right to vote.

After the withdrawal of Federal troops from the South in 1877, the Democrats took power in the South and systematically violated the 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution depriving African Americans of due process, equal protection of the law and the right to vote, and that was not just in the South. Other Americans including the courts failed to uphold the Constitution until beginning in the 1950s.

BTW, the Democrats’ “Black Codes” that prohibited African Americans from owning guns allowed the Democrats’ military arm, the KKK, to terrorize and intimidate African Americans to deprive them of their 14th and 15th Amendment rights.

******************************
Dr. King recognized this stating in his famous “I have a dream” speech:

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

******************************
The Redlands Tea Party Patriots take the opportunity of MLK Day to salute Martin Luther King for his work in upholding and enforcing the Constitution of the United States and upholding America’s founding principle “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.”

Martin Luther King also exemplified Justice Louis D. Brandeis’ statement: “The most important political office is that of the private citizen.”

*****************************

The experience of African Americans and the Constitution is an important lesson for all Americans.

Thomas Jefferson said: 

In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

The experience of African Americans shows how true Thomas Jefferson’s statement is and the importance of the Tea Party principle of “constitutionally limited government.”  Unless government is firmly bound by the Constitution, no one’s rights and liberties are secure.

******************************
Some of our other favorite Martin Luther King quotes:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Cowardice asks the question, is it expedient? And then expedience comes along and asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? Conscience asks the question, is it right? There comes a time when one must take the position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in moments of challenge and controversy.”

We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”

Some things are right and some things are wrong, no matter if everybody is doing the contrary. Some things in this universe are absolute. The God of the universe has made it so. And so long as we adopt this relative attitude toward right and wrong, we’re revolting against the very laws of God himself.”

Any nation or government that deprives an individual of freedom is in that moment committing an act of moral and spiritual murder. Any individual who is not concerned about his freedom commits an act of moral and spiritual suicide.”

If you can’t fly, run; if you can’t run, walk; if you can’t walk, crawl; but by all means keep moving.”

“Central View,” by William Hamilton, J.D, Ph.D.
 
Appointments: the President offers a deal
An imaginary conversation between the President and the Senate Majority Leader:
 
“Mitch, thanks for coming,” began the President. “Today, I want to discuss the presidential appointment process. And, in particular, the subject of ‘recess appointments.'”
“Yes, Mr. President, you have the opportunity to fill almost 4,000 high-level Executive Branch positions. Twelve hundred of them require Senate confirmation. About 2,800 do not.”
“Mitch, when President Reagan was asked how many people work in Washington, D.C. President Reagan said, ‘About half.’ So, don’t hold your breath waiting for me to send you a list of 1,200 nominations that require Senate confirmation.
“But, when I do send you nominations, those are people who are supportive of the pledges I made to the people who elected me. For them, I would like prompt consideration. Mitch, that has not always been the case.”
“How so, Mr. President?”
“Well, for example, by November 19th of his first year in office, President G.W. Bush had 455 confirmed appointees, President Obama had 310 confirmed appointees, but, so far, I have had only 203 appointees confirmed. Mitch, is there a reason for this?”
“Mr. President, that’s because the Democrats are using parliamentary maneuvers to prevent many of your nominees from being confirmed.”
“Mitch, when the other side pulls a trick, you counter it by coming up with a maneuver of your own.”
“Mr. President, what do you have in mind?”
“According to Article II, Section 2, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution: ‘The President shall have the power to fill up Vacancies that can happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.’
“Mitch, I would not be the first President to use recess appointments. For example, President Reagan made 232 recess appointments, President George H.W. Bush made 171, President Clinton made 139, President G.W. Bush made 78, and President Barack H. Obama made 32. Mitch, how many recess appointments have I made?”
“None, Mr. President.”
“And why is that the case, Mr. Majority Leader?”
“Because the Senate has been in continuous normal or pro forma session ever since your inauguration.”
“Mitch, if there is a conspiracy to prevent me from making recess appointments, your Republican colleagues better not be behind it. If that were so and if word of it got out, my base would not vote for another Republican. Not even for dog catcher.
“Mitch, here is a list of nominees you say are being held up by the Democrats. If anyone on that list does not meet your approval, I will reconsider. But for the names we agree on today, I want you to put the Senate in recess for three or more days over Christmas That way, I can do even more of what the people elected me to do. Do we have deal?”
“But, Mr. President, what if the Democrats refuse to go into recess?”
“Then, the public will know which party to blame. So, do we have a deal?”
“I, ah, need time to consider.”
“Mitch, please, be quick. Otherwise, I may feel a Tweet coming on.”

WOW!!!  Donald Trump’s accomplishments. 

WOW!!!  Donald Trump’s accomplishments.  published on

WOW!!!  Donald Trump’s accomplishments.   http://www.magapill.com/ 

In particular, note the economic achievements, and Congress has not passed his #TaxReform plan yet.

Imagine if President Trump had a Congress that supported his and our #MAGA agenda.

Imagine also if the media was fair and balanced and reported President Trump’s accomplishments.  His approval rating would be 60% plus instead of mid 40s.

However, President Trump needs our support more than ever if we are to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.
