Tea Party for Trump

By: Lloyd Marcus

It is exciting that my patriot brothers and sisters at Tea Party Express have announced the launch of “Tea Party for Trump.”  My first tour on Tea Party Express in 2008 led to me speaking and performing my “American Tea Party Anthem” at over 500 rallies on several national bus tours.

The launch of “Tea Party for Trump” feels similar to the Blues Brothers saying: “We’re getting the old band back together again because we’re on a mission from God.”  My fellow patriots, “Tea Party for Trump” is our mission from God to reelect our remarkable president.

The Amazing Whistle Stop

Our Tea Party Express rally in Searchlight, Nevada featuring Sarah Palin drew 25,000 people.  Our rally in Boston drew 19,000.  The most memorable rally for me was not a scheduled rally.  After completing a rally, our tour bus headed to the next scheduled rally in Memphis, Tennessee.  A staffer received a phone call requesting that we make a brief whistle stop so around 50 people could meet our team of speakers and entertainers.

America’s Sovereign States: The Obscure History of How 10 Independent States Joined the U.S.

Sovereign States of America: The History of 10 Independent States & How They Joined the U.S.

It is often said that before the Civil War, the United States “are,” but after the War, the United States “is.” This is a reference to the formerly theoretically sovereign nature of each state as compared to “one nation, indivisible.”

More than just the theoretic sovereignty of the individual states, the territory now comprising the U.S. has a rich history of sovereign states outside the control of the federal government. Some of these you’ve almost certainly heard of, but a lot of them are quite obscure. Each points toward a potential American secession of the future.Table of Contents

Vermont Republic (January 15, 1777 – March 4, 1791)

Current Territory: The State of Vermont

The earliest sovereign state in North America after the Revolution was the Vermont Republic, also known as the Green Mountain Republic or the Republic of New Connecticut. The Republic was known by the United States as “the New Hampshire Grants” and was not recognized by the Continental Congress. The people of the Vermont Republic contacted the British government about union with Quebec, which was accepted on generous terms. They ultimately declined union with Quebec after the end of the Revolutionary War, during which they were involved in the Battle of Bennington, and the territory was accepted into the Union as the 14th state – the first after the original 13.

Only Uncle Tom Celebrating July 4th

By: Lloyd Marcus

American leftists cannot restrain themselves from throwing stink-bombs at all things wholesome and good. July 4th, my wife Mary read two articles in which black writers scolded blacks for celebrating Independence Day. They claim us blacks have nothing to celebrate because we we weren’t free in 1776.

Why are leftists so hellbent on instilling in me and my fellow blacks that America is not our country? America repented of her sins long ago. The Civil War was fought to liberate blacks from slavery. White abolitionists broke the law by teaching blacks to read. Affluent whites Etta Budd, Joseph Budd and Louis Pammel nurtured black American botanist and inventor George Washington Carver’s career. https://bit.ly/1NBBVtD

My point is American history is replete with Godly whites who helped blacks; sometimes risking everything. And yet, leftists have successfully sold blacks their lie that any success achieved by blacks is in spite of racist white America. Blacks are only 12% of the population. Much of black wealth in America is the result of white help and patronage.

White males have nurtured my career my entire life; such as Mr. Gomer, my 7th grade art teacher. Baltimore Mayor William Donald Schaefer met with me in his office for an hour and gave me a scholarship to the Maryland Institute College of Art. Ray Dell and Joe Canale owned sign companies where I worked during college. Barry Finglas of Park Sign Company hired me as the Art Director. After viewing my portfolio, John Holechek gave me free office space in his building to launch my own graphic design business. Chuck at Fred Kail Advertising mentored me, kicking my designer skills to a high professional level. Dick Weisberg hired me as the first black graphic designer on his team at WJZ-TV in Baltimore. All these allegedly “born-racist” successful white men were extremely good to me. https://nyp.st/2DBV1l8

Why can’t leftists allow us to get over all this divisiveness and live together as Americans? Racial harmony is the desire of most Americans as evidenced by the election of Barack Obama for two terms.

Myself and others have given history lessons in countless articles, confirming white American’s commitment to liberating blacks. The truth falls on deaf ears because leftists want to keep blacks hating whites and their country. Leftists believe if they can keep blacks believing white America seeks their demise, blacks will remain loyal Democrat voters.

Democrats in power will force leftists’ extreme radical, anti-Christian and anti-American ideas onto the masses with the government controlling every aspect of our lives. Democrats will make states affirm the LGBTQ agenda; force redistribution of wealth; repeal American’s right to bear arms; legalize abortion even on the date of birth and dish out healthcare dictating who lives or dies. https://bit.ly/2KCaQwi

July 4th, I released my music video, We Are Americans https://bit.ly/2KPas9M, honoring my God and my country. If angry bitter blacks choose to call me an Uncle Tom, I really do not care. America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for it.

My late black dad was raised without his parents by his aunt. Beginning as a shoeshine boy at the Greyhound Bus Station in Baltimore, Dad rose to become Rev. Dr. Lloyd E. Marcus. From a black kid picking cotton, Clarence Thomas became a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. That’s the greatness of America folks.

I am so weary of leftists relentlessly seeking to tear down my homeland. Attempting to educate leftists about the goodness of America is fruitless. They want to racially divide us. These evil people also seek to instill classy envy, entitlement mindsets and hatred for achievers. Leftists always appeal to our lower natures; our base instincts. Disgusting.

Rather than constantly rehashing distant historical wrongs, why aren’t leftists encouraging blacks to do what they can to help themselves today; stop murdering each other in record numbers https://bit.ly/2KTwATJ; stop dropping out of school; stop having babies out of wedlock and stop voting for Democrats.

African blacks sold blacks into the slave trade. https://cnn.it/2zhsFLR Therefore, blacks and white played roles in enslaving blacks in America. Insidiously, leftists portray slavery as a totally white thing.

Leftists impugn blacks who do not harbor cancerous resentments against white America. The American left seeks to con and guilt-trip white Americans into paying blacks reparations. My response to blacks demanding reparations is get off your lazy no-count derriere and get an education and a job. Nobody owes you anything!

True self-esteem, empowerment and dignity comes from earning one’s own way; not blaming or placing your success or failure in the hands of someone other than yourself. Leftists tell blacks whitey is responsible when you fail. This lie weakens rather than empowers blacks.

In the 1970’s, Joe was one of my fellow black students at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Raised by his grandmother, Joe was laser-focused on his studies. He became the first black art director at the prestigious W.B. Doner advertising agency in Baltimore. Dave was the most artistically gifted in our crew of black artists. Sadly, Dave frequently ranted about how whitey won’t give a black man a fair shake in this f****** country – you’ve got to steal as much as you can, when you can. Tragically, Dave never achieved his dreams and died young of a drug overdose.

Black Americans should kiss the ground they walk on in this country. Is there racism in America? Absolutely, along with every other sin under the sun. But the truth is there is not enough racism to stop anyone from achieving their American dream.

I feel a song coming on…

This is my country! Land of my birth!
This is my country! Grandest on earth!
I pledge thee my allegiance, America, the bold,
For this is my country to have and to hold.

I am a grateful black American who loves his country and proudly celebrated Independence Day. https://bit.ly/2KPas9M

Happy Independence Day: Our Forgotten Founding

By: Lloyd Marcus

The American left loved it when Obama proclaimed early in his presidency that we are no longer a Christian nation. https://bit.ly/2KwbI1x

While actively seducing illegals to invade our country https://bit.ly/2KuKQ51, Obama strove to deport and seal our borders from the God of the Bible. Obama was the most biblically hostile president in U.S. History. https://bit.ly/2plTsy0

America was founded upon a rock-solid foundation of Christianity. Five historic crucial battles were won by divine intervention; God’s hand on America. https://bit.ly/2KhiP1R

“The future and success of America is not in this Constitution, but in the laws of God upon which this Constitution is founded.” – James Madison

“The reason that Christianity is the best friend of government is because Christianity is the only religion that changes the heart.” – Thomas Jefferson

“The Bible is the rock on which this Republic rests.”Andrew Jackson

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ! For this very reason, peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity and freedom of worship here.” – Patrick Henry

“If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.” – Daniel Webster

“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were…. the general principles of Christianity.”John Adams

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People.” – John Adams

“America was born a Christian nation – America was born to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness which are derived from the revelations of Holy Scripture. That if they would see America free and pure they will make their own spirits free and pure by this baptism of the Holy Spirit” – Woodrow Wilson

It was extremely disturbing witnessing Obama’s 8 years of diminishing the dignity of what it means to be an American; undermining our legacy of courage, individualism and self-reliance. Obama encouraged Americans to get on welfare. https://bit.ly/2tPrptm

Outrageously, Obama used Spanish-speaking soap operas to encourage illegals to apply for food stamps, claiming it was the moral thing to do for their families. https://bit.ly/1ixsqOm

He demeaned risk-taking small business owners by telling them, “You didn’t build that.” https://fxn.ws/2biS2xL Under Obama, fraudulent disability claims and Americans receiving unemployment checks skyrocketed. https://bit.ly/2N8rYY1 Black unemployment went through the roof, sending blacks economically backwards. https://bit.ly/2KwZjNU

As a Christian nation, we love giving people a hand up and setting them free to fly on their own. That’s the America way. “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” While this proverb is not in the Bible, the principle is biblical.

The anti-Christian American left’s goal is to addict as many Americans as possible to total dependency on government – creating entitlement junkies willing to surrender total control of their lives to big brother. Obamacare actually dictated which Americans would live or die. https://bit.ly/2Kjp1q3 Obama admitted that under his healthcare, grandma would probably be given a painkiller rather than a pacemaker. https://bit.ly/2MweDaT

Everywhere you turn, you see America’s cultural decline in the family, morality, education and the arts. https://bit.ly/2ySviUp The American left promotes class envy, racial hate, victim mindsets, irresponsibility, laziness and hatred for achievers.

My heart wanted to scream from the rooftops, “We are better than this, WE ARE AMERICANS!” Instead, I wrote a song.

Hollywood film director Robert Kirk has produced a new stunningly moving music video using my original song titled, “We Are Americans.” https://youtu.be/FZ_P6bpMlYI

The release of the new “We Are Americans” music video is July 4th: https://youtu.be/FZ_P6bpMlYI

My fellow Americans, we have fallen away from biblical principles and values which have made America the shining city on a hill. During your July4th Independence Day celebration, between eating burgers and hot-dogs, please gather your family to enjoy this new 4 minute music video reminding us of who we are as Americans. https://youtu.be/FZ_P6bpMlYI Thanks and God Bless.

Thank God President Trump is turning our country back to its roots of religious liberty https://dailysign.al/2lLsBKZ. He is putting Americans back to work https://bit.ly/2tPkfFo, defending our borders and restoring the specialness of being an American. Happy Independence Day!

Obama Addresses The Military One Last Time… No One Shows Up [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | Right Wing News

Obama has been an utter failure where the military is concerned and that has been by deliberate design. He has gutted our forces to WWI levels. He has decommissioned our ships, artillery and planes. He has stripped the troops of needed supplies, food and weaponry. Then he has imposed a perverse social engineering on them to destroy their morale. In other words, he has tried to destroy the greatest military force on the planet and he almost succeeded. What he didn’t count on was Donald Trump and his strong military Cabinet.

Is it any wonder that Obama leaves office and is roundly hated among members of the military? They can’t wait for President-elect Donald Trump to take command. He’s already said that he is planning on massively expanding the Navy. He’s negotiating new aircraft and he has vowed that our Army will be the strongest in the world once more. I have seen high ranking military men literally weep when shaking Trump’s hand. That tells you everything you need to know right there.

From the Daily Mail:

President Obama is leaving the White House with majority disapproval among members of the military for his role as commander in chief, according to a new survey at the tail end of his presidency.

Obama’s move steep reduction of U.S. forces stationed in Afghanistan after a troop surge, and his withdrawal of forces from Iraq in keeping with a status of forces agreement, doesn’t appear to have carried support in the the military.

Forty three per cent said the U.S. should deploy more troops to combat zones, while 32 per cent favored reductions, according to the poll by Military Times and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.

President-elect Donald Trump’s campaigned on a call to make ‘America first’ and avoid overseas engagements.
The poll said 49 per cent backed President-elect Donald Trump in the campaign, compared to just 29 per cent for Hillary Clinton. Each touted their support among military brass during the campaign.

Election exit polls had Clinton beating Trump among military members by 50 to 44 per cent, while Trump beat her among veterans 60 to 34 per cent, CNN reported.

Obama got a 52 percent unfavorable rating in the survey, AOL reported. He had an 18 per cent favorable rating with 18.4 per cent rating him somewhat favorably.

More than half the troops despise Obama. 49% voted for Trump in the survey and I’ll just bet it was more than that. When Obama gave his military farewell speech, he gave it to an empty stadium. No one respects the man… they detest him and his weakness and hatred of the military. Every action that Obama has taken from Afghanistan, to Iraq, to Libya, to Yemen, to Syria has been an unmitigated disaster for the US. The only ones it has helped are the Islamic butchers we are supposed to be fighting. I contend that was on purpose. Yesterday, Obama just approved enough uranium to the Iranians for ten nukes and he has gifted them billions of our dollars… exactly whose side is he on? I think that is obvious.

The exit polls on election day were a massive lie. They showed the military breaking for Clinton. It’s abundantly clear that was not the case. Obama has made us extremely less safe and capable as a nation and militarily… Clinton would have finished us off. Obama has actually assisted ISIS in their growth and atrocities. He’s also aided al Qaeda. He says one thing, but it is what he has actually done that makes his actions so treasonous.

Obama’s farewell to the military was to an empty stadium, whereas George W. Bush’s was to a packed one. Our warriors know a true leader when they serve under one. The only real salute Obama gets on his way out the White House door is a one-fingered one. It’s all he deserves.

Thanksgiving Through the Years

By: Lee Edwards | The Daily Signal

thanksgiving

George Washington was first in war, first in peace, and in November 1789, the first president to proclaim a national day of thanksgiving, openly acknowledging God as the source of all “the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.”

Among the “favors” were a Declaration of Independence that inspires us to the present day, a remarkable military victory over the most powerful nation in the world, and an ingenious Constitution of checks and balances that places “we the people” at the center of our government.

For the next fourscore and seven years, most states honored a November date as a day of prayer and fasting, but there was no national celebration. Of the early presidents, only James Madison, in 1814 and 1815, issued proclamations.

Then in November 1863, with the Civil War still raging, President Abraham Lincoln officially declared the last Thursday of November to be Thanksgiving. Echoing Washington, Lincoln asked Americans to “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 employment of peace, harmony, tranquillity, and union.”

God heard the people’s prayers for an end to war and the preservation of the Union, but He had yet to vouchsafe a “full” employment of harmony and tranquility.

Succeeding presidents issued proclamations in the same providential spirit of Lincoln and Washington, freely thanking God for His favors and benefits. In 1904, for example, President Theodore Roosevelt said that “the time has come [again] when a special day shall be set apart in which to thank Him, who holds all nations in the hollow of His hand, for the mercies thus vouchsafed to us.” In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge said that Americans should “devoutly give thanks to the Almighty for the many and great blessings they have received, to seek His guidance that they may receive a continuance of His favor.”

However, with the election of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the coming of secular progressivism, God was given an increasingly secondary role while the “civic spirit” of America was extolled. “May we on Thanksgiving Day and on every day,” said FDR in the middle of World War II, careful not to use the “G” word, “express our gratitude and zealously devote ourselves to our duties as individuals and as a nation.”

President John F. Kennedy also skirted the word “God,” calling on Americans to “renew that spirit [of Thanksgiving] by offering our thanks for uncovenanted mercies, beyond our desert or merit, and by resolving to meet the responsibilities placed upon us.” Faithful to his progressive roots, President Barack Obama declared in his 2012 Thanksgiving proclamation that “we are a people who draw our deepest strength not from might or wealth but from our bonds to each other” (but not, apparently, to a transcendent being).

As he did in so many ways, President Ronald Reagan broke sharply with the progressives, taking inspiration from Washington and Lincoln and reemphasizing the religious character of Thanksgiving. Quoting the 1863 Thanksgiving proclamation, Reagan said that “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.” Reagan went on: “God has blessed America and her people, and it is appropriate we recognize this bounty.”

Thanksgiving has always been rooted in the notion, wrote commentator Daniel Horowitz, “that as a nation, our entire prosperity, security, and liberty is completely dependent upon God’s providence.” So on this Thanksgiving Day in the year of our Lord two thousand sixteen, let us give thanks and thanks and ever thanks to Him who gives us life, liberty, and happiness.
