       Our Bill of Rights

     By and large, the first 10 amendments to our United States Constitution are sweeping prohibitions against governmental abridgement or destruction of individual fundamental rights.  The tenth amendment, reserving to the states, or to the people, powers not delegated or prohibited to the Federal government, established a basis for subsequent judicial interpretations of the Constitution limiting the power of the Federal government. 

     These 10 Amendments to our U. S.
          Constitution are as follows:

     Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

      A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

      No Soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

      The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

      No persons shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life and limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

      In all criminal prosecutions the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witness against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

      In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

      Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

      The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

     The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The myth of:                          

  "Separation of Church and State"


*  "Our system of Justice is based on English Common Law, and English Common Law is based on the Ten Commandments.  This is the verifiable, historical fact.  There is no conceivable way Christianity (Church) can be wholly independent of Justice, Law, or the Constitution of the United States of America (the State) - unless by usurpation by the Godless tyranny of 'Liberalism' (Socialism)."               ...Emil T. Miller,  American Citizen

                 THE TEN COMMANDMENTS of GOD

1.)  Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

2.)  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.

3.)  Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.

4.)  Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.

5.)  Honor thy father and thy mother.

6.  Thou shalt not kill.

7.)  Thou shalt not commit adultery.

8.)  Thou shalt not steal.

9.)  Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

10.)  Thou shalt not covet. 

Our Constitution is clear.  The Government is not to tamper with, restrict, or in any way keep the people from the exercise of their Christian religion in whatever ways they desire, AND LIKEWISE, no religion is to hold any power over the Government.  The Constitution DOES NOT STATE that there is to be no intermingling or mixing of, or between the two.  Indeed such total integration is exactly what our Founding Fathers intended, and our system of justice and our Constitution is entirely unworkable without such integration.  Their every quote and pronouncement makes clear that this nation was founded upon Christianity and should have Christianity running through every facet of American life both public and private, while not excluding and protecting non-belief equally as well. 
The contrived "issue" of "separation of church and state"  is a PURE FABRICATION of the Liberal Socialists mostly in the Democrat party (Atheists by definition), their Yellow Dog Democrat dupes and their Democrat appointed activist Liberal judges all of who now control that Party, and which "issue" has been taken up and thrust upon Americans by them and the Leftist TV News Media, Academia, and the Hollywood Establishment; all while timid, head-in-the-sand, don't-rock-the-boat Christians have stood silently by and allowed them to foist this travesty upon us.  If we continue to do so we will get what we deserve; the LOSS of our constitutional guarantee of the freedom to freely worship and to govern the country according to The Ten Commandments of God... resulting in SOCIALISM!

  The Church and State Debate
                                               by Joseph Farah

     Does the U. S. Constitution mandate "Separation of church and state"?  That's the question dealt with in this special issue of Whistleblower Magazine.
     And the answer is actually quite simple.  No.
   This should not even be a matter of debate.  The U. S. Constitution was written in simple language for all to understand.  There was never a thought that such straightforward principles as laid out by the founders would be the subject of endless debates by attorneys.
     The constitution does not call for the separation of church and state.  There is no provision like that in the founding documents.  The closest it comes is the First Amendment's prohibition against the establishment of an official state church.
     The reality, of course, is that the Founders went so far as to allocate federal money for the publishing and distribution of Bibles.  They believed the system of self-government they established would not work unless the citizens were a devout and moral group.  They set aside national days of prayer and fasting.  In fact, they established our entire system of law on the foundation laid by the Bible, especially the Book of Deuteronomy.  Walk up to the U. S. Supreme Court building today and you will see a sculpture of Moses delivering the Ten Commandments.
     So, not for a moment do I believe there is any impregnable wall separating church and state, as some claim or as some would like.  That's not what the Founders had in mind.
     However, they did believe that the state should not interfere in the church's affairs.
     What are the church's affairs?  Feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, nursing the sick.
     Government has exceeded its constitutional authority and largely usurped this vital role from the church.  That's neither to the church's credit nor to the government's.
     The debate over separation of church and state hit a peak this year when Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore displayed a monument of the Ten Commandments in his courthouse.  A federal judge, Myron Thompson, ordered it removed.
     In doing so, the federal judge said the government could not even acknowledge the existence of God.
     The First Amendment protects the free exercise of religion and prohibits the state from imposing an official church.  The Ten Commandments represent the very basis of Western Civilization.  They are revered equally by believing Jews, Christians and even some Muslims.  It is a unifying document, not a divisive one.  If our society cannot agree that the very basis of all our laws should be read, honored and obeyed, then our society will not last much longer.  It won't deserve to last much longer.
     I wonder how long it will take the ACLU to sue the U. S. Supreme Court for its own displays of the Ten Commandments?  I wonder how long it will take Judge Thompson or another like-minded activist to threaten Chief Justice William Rehnquist with a court (order) demanding the removal of at least two such images - one on the inside and one on the outside of the building?  I wonder what defenses will be invoked to protect our national spiritual heritage then?
     This Whistleblower issue (as noted above) will offer some insight, answers, and alternatives to our modern, secularist jihad against  all expressions of faith in the public sector.
     Until next time,

    Thomas Jefferson  - (click to enlarge)


After 150 years of honoring Founders' intent, activist judges took radical new direction.                         ...By David Barton, © 2003

Editor's Note:  "The separation of church and state" - a phrase found nowhere in the Constitution or any other founding document - is a modern legal doctrine, an invention of 20th century courts based on a quote from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson.
     David Barton, whose WallBuilders organization has exhaustively documented the Christian history of the Untied States, explains the origin to the "separation of church and state" in America.

The first amendment was never intended to separate Christian principles from government.  Yet today, Americans constantly hear the First Amendment coupled with the phrase "separation of church and state."
     The First Amendment simply states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise there of."
     Obviously, the words "separation," "church," or "state" are not found in the First Amendment, nor in any other founding document.
     Before the Founders approved the final wording, the First Amendment went through nearly a dozen different iterations and extensive discussions.  Those discussions - recorded in the Congressional Record from June 7 through September 25 of 1789 - make clear their intent for the First Amendment.  By it, the founders were saying, essentially: We do not want in America what we had in Great Britain.  We don't want one denomination running the nation.  We will not all be Catholics, or Anglicans, or any other single denomination.  We do want God's principles, but we don't want one denomination running the nation.
     This intent was well understood, as evidenced by court rulings after the First Amendment.  For example, a 1799 court declared: "By our forms of government, the Christian religion is the established religion; and all sects and denominations of Christians are placed on the same equal footing."
     Thomas Jefferson, to whom the now-popular phrase "separation of church and state" is attributed, also believed, as did the other Founders, that the First Amendment simply prevented the federal establishment of a single denomination - a fact he had made clear in a letter to Benjamin Rush.  In that letter, Jefferson committed himself as president to not allowing  the Episcopalians, the Congregationalists or any other denomination to achieve what Jefferson called the "establishment of a particular form of Christianity."  So what is the source of Jefferson's now infamous phrase?
     On Nov. 7, 1801, the Baptists of Danbury, Conn., wrote Jefferson (the actual letter can be seen on page 6 of above referenced magazine), concerned that the guarantee of the "free exercise of religion" appeared in the First Amendment.   To them, this suggested that the right to religious exercise was a government-granted rather than a God-granted right, thus implying that someday the government might try to regulate religious expression.  They believed that the freedom of religion was a God-granted, unalienable right; and that the government should be powerless to restrict religious activities unless, as the Baptists explained, those activities caused someone to "work ill to his neighbor."
     Jefferson understood their concern.  In his response (see actual letter on page 7 of referenced magazine), he assured them that the free exercise of religion was indeed an unalienable right and would not be meddled with by the government.  Jefferson pointed out to them that there was a "wall of separation between church and state" to ensure that the government would never interfere with religious activities.
     Today, all that is heard of Jefferson's letter is the phrase, "a wall of separation between church and state," without either the context or the explanation given in the letter, or its application by earlier courts.
     The clear understanding of the First Amendment for a century-and-a-half was that it prohibited the establishment of a single national denomination.  National policies and rulings in that century-and-half always reflected that interpretation.
     For example, in 1853, a group petitioned Congress to separate Christian principles from government.  They desired a so-called "separation of church and state" with chaplains being turned out of the Congress, the military, and other parts of government.  Their petition was referred to the House and the Senate Judiciary Committees, which investigated for almost a year to see if it would be possible to separate Christian principles from government.
     Both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees returned with their reports.  The following are excerpts from the House report delivered on March 27, 1854 (the Senate report was very similar):

"Had the people (the Founding Fathers). during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, the Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle.  At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the amendments, the universal sentiment was that Christianity should be encouraged, but not any one sect (denomination). ... In this age, there is no substitute for Christianity. ... That was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants."

Two months later, the Judiciary committee made this strong declaration:

"The great, vital, and conservative element in our system (the thing that holds our system together) is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

     The committees explained that they would not separate these principles, for it was these principles and activities which had made America so successful - they had been the nation's foundation, its basis.
     During the 1870's, 1880's, and the 1890's, yet another group that challenged specific Christian principles in government arrived before the Supreme Court.  Jefferson's letter had remained unused for years, for as time had progressed after its use in 1802 - and after no national denomination had been established - his letter had fallen into obscurity.  But now - 75 years later - in the case Reynolds v. United States, the plaintiffs resurrected Jefferson's letter, hoping to use it to their advantage.  In that case, the Court printed a lengthy segment of Jefferson's letter and then used his letter on "separation of church and state" to again prove that it was permissible to maintain Christian values, principles and practices in official policy.
     For the next 15 years during that legal controversy, the Supreme Court utilized Jefferson's letter to ensure that Christian principles remained a part of government. 
     Following this controversy, Jefferson's letter again fell into disuse.  It then remained silent for the next 70 years until 1947, when, in Everson v. Board of Education, the court, for the first time, did not cite Jefferson's entire letter, but selected only eight words from it.
     The court now announced: The First Amendment has erected "a wall of separation between church and state"  That wall must be kept high and impregnable.
     This was a new philosophy for the court.  Why would the court take Jefferson's letter completely out of context and cite only eight of its words?  Dr. William James, the "father of modern psychology" - and a strong opponent of religious principles in government and education - perhaps explained the court's new strategy when he stated: "There is nothing so absurd but if you repeat it often enough people will believe it."
     This statement precisely describes the tack utilized by the court in the years following its 1947 announcement.  The court began regularly to speak of a "separation of church and state" as if to say: This is what the Founders wanted - separation of church and state;  this is their great intent. 
     The court failed to quote the Founders; it just generically asserted that this is what the Founders wanted.
     The courts continued on this tack so steadily that, in 1958, in a case called Baer v. Kolmorgen, one of the judges was tired of hearing the phrase and wrote a dissent warning that if the court did not stop talking about the "separation of church and state," people were going to start thinking it was part of the Constitution!
     Nevertheless, the court continued to talk about separation until June 25, 1962, when in the case Engle v. Vitale, the court delivered its first ever ruling that completely separated Christian principles from education; the case struck down school prayer.
     Even the World Book Encyclopedia's 1963 Yearbook noted that this case was the first time there had been a separation of church and state in education.  In that 1962 case, the court redefined the meaning and application of a single word: "church".
     For 170 years prior to that case, the word "church" - as used in the phrase "separation of church and state" - was defined to mean "a federally established denomination."  However, in 1962 the court explained that the word "church" would now mean "a religious activity in public."
     This was the turning point in the interpretation of the First Amendment.
   Understand what the court had just announced: No longer would the First Amendment simply prohibit the establishment of a federal denomination; it now would prohibit religious activities in public settings.  This current doctrine of separation  is a brand new doctrine; it is not something from the Founding Fathers, and it is not in any founding document.
     Even outside observers recognize this policy is a recent one.  Yet notice how much has been relinquished in recent years under this new doctrine.
     School prayer was the first casualty of the redefinition of the First Amendment in the 1962 Engel case.  School prayer had never before been challenged; for, clearly, school prayer had never established a national denomination and therefore had always been acceptable,  But under the new definition, school prayer definitely was a religious activity in public and was therefore now deemed to be unconstitutional.
     That 1962 case that first redefined the First Amendment and then removed school prayer was notable in a number of aspects.  Recall that the 1892 Supreme Court case offered 87 precedents to maintain the inclusion of Christian principles in our laws and institutions.  This 1962 case which removed school prayer was just the opposite; it was the first case in court history to use zero precedents - the court quoted zero previous legal cases.
     Without any historical or legal base, the court simply made an announcement: We'll not have prayers in schools anymore; that violates the Constitution.
      A brand new direction was taken in America.
     Within a 12 month period of time, in two more cases in 1963, the court had removed not only prayer, but also Bible reading, religious classes and religious instruction.  This was a radical reversal.

I urge you to consider what I believe the very best newspaper in the country:

TheWashingtonTimes-National Weekly Edition


 This excellent newspaper, published in Washington, D.C., is arguably the nation's foremost newspaper of record.  Their National Weekly Edition costs little more than a dollar a week - only $59.95 for a full year
.  Coming in the mail once a week, it is a compendium of all the major World, National, and State news and articles which have appeared that week in their daily papers.  The paper is editorially Conservative, but its articles are straightforward, without bias or slant and is non-selective.  It gives ALL the news ALL the time, without agenda, and it keeps people up to date and completely informed.  When I was introduced to this paper some years ago, I cancelled 5 magazine subscriptions as well as my local and Nashville newspapers because I received far more true and unbiased information in it than all the rest of the left-leaning, agenda-driven publications combined.  Unaltered truth and facts are what I require, and I highly recommend this newspaper!
