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

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 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.

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.

The game ended over two weeks ago and yet the losers are still pouting, protesting, rioting, vandalizing, suspending college classes, threatening to secede, petitioning the Presidential Electors to vote for Hillary on Dec. 19th, and planning to flood down on Washington D.C with protests on Jan. 20th, 2017.
This is not just a game lost; but a war that has been going on over a year to capture the “White House.” The battleground states became a battleground nation. Mr. Trump won the Electoral College battle, Mrs. Clinton won the popular vote battle; but who will win the war on Jan. 20th?
It won’t be the Constitution or the American Federation the Framers established.
Were Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump the most outstanding individuals and statesmen this nation could produce? This ludicrous and shameful behavior is what party politics and mass democracy has done to us.
Doesn’t this election cycle, if nothing else, prove that we need a better way to elect this high office?
The Framers did not want a democracy. They rejected the idea of a popular vote to elect the President. The notes from the Constitutional Convention, describe many options that were discussed at length on several occasions as to how the office of the chief Executive, the President of the Union of States should be chosen. To share a couple example of their objection to a popular election:
“ Mr. GERRY. (Elbridge Gerry, MA) A popular election in this case is radically vicious [violent]. The ignorance of the people would put it in the power of some one set of men dispersed through the Union & acting in Concert to delude them into any appointment.” 
Mr. Gerry also spoke of the “excesses” and “evils” of democracy expressing his opposition this way, “The evils we experience flow from the excess of democracy. The people do not want [lack] virtue, but are the dupes of pretended patriots. In Mass. it had been fully confirmed by experience that they are daily misled into the most baneful measures and opinions by the false reports circulated by designing men, and which no one on the spot can refute.” 
Col George Mason delegate from Virginia, also known as the father of the Bill of Rights, put it this way, “It would be as unnatural to refer the choice of a proper character for chief Magistrate to the people, as it would to refer a trial of colours to a blind man.” 
Roger Sherman of Connecticut said, “that the president ought to be elected by Congress, since he feared that direct election of presidents by the people would lead to the creation of a monarchy.” 
If the Framers did not want a popularly elected president or democracy –what did they want?
They wanted to design a structure of government to control the national level of government, safeguard freedom, protect individual liberty, establish justice and promote prosperity. They did not go from a confederation of states to a consolidated central government.
The Framers intelligently designed the greatest political document ever created–the Constitution of the United States. It defined a modified American Federation; a “more perfect Union”–not a democracy. The Constitution added one house (but only one house) to be elected by the people. The Articles of Confederation had no assembly elected by the people.
They also added an Executive Branch with specific limited responsibilities and a detailed method for filling that office. Article II of the Constitution carefully outlines every step. It was a compound process using one group outside of government influence (independent Presidential Electors) to recommend the most outstanding presidential possibilities; and a second group inside government (the House of Representatives) to make the final election by the States, each state having one vote.
The concept of having one body nominate a group of candidates from which another body will make a final selection is consistent with Resolution # 5 of the Virginia Plan and not an uncommon practice. 
Both the nomination and the election came under the jurisdiction of the States. The States would choose the method of appointment of the Electors and the States having an equal voice—one vote each, would elect the President. (An American Federation again.)
A “short cut” was provided in case a majority of Electors recommended the same individuals; then there was no need to go to the House. For a more detailed examination of the presidential election process see: A Far Superior Process 
Some of the delegates in the Convention thought the Congress would often make the final election. George Mason for example, stated “that nineteen times in twenty the President would be chosen by the Senate, an improper body for the purpose.” However, on Sept. 4th when the final election was changed from the Senate to the House, it pleased many delegates. Mr. Madison records: “Col: Mason liked the latter mode best as lessening the aristocratic influence of the Senate.” 
However, because political party machinations sought to manipulate and control the Presidential Electors, and always force a majority, we soon lost the independence of the Electors and the Executive Branch. The first Branch to fall victim to party politics and democracy was the Executive, facilitated by the 12th Amendment. The Senate was the second casualty of party control and democracy with the 17th Amendment. The State’s lost the voice of their State Government and the American Federation crumbled to the ground.
President George Washington in his farewell address earnestly pleaded and warned the country in the most solemn manner not to resort to political parties; that sooner or later, the despotism and spirit of revenge would result in the ruins of Public Liberty. (Sept. 19, 1796)
We claim that constitutional government was destroyed by party government. See our book: The Evolution and Destruction of the Original Electoral College
The Constitution was intelligently designed to control the government, not to control the people.
However, the Constitution does not have any control over party politics, but party politics has a lot of control over the people and the government.

The Pilgrims are well known today for their association with the first Thanksgiving festival. The Pilgrims were Separatists — a set of Protestants who felt that they would be unable to reform the Church of England and therefore needed to separate and form their own church. Following persecution from the Church of England, they went to Holland and then eventually to America. (The Puritans were those who believed they could reform the Church of England. It turned out that they were wrong, and following severe persecution, some 20,000 followed the Pilgrims to America.)
The Pilgrims had obtained a land grant for Virginia and set sail in the Mayflower on September 6, 1620. But after a rough ocean crossing, they landed some 200 miles north of Virginia in what became known as Massachusetts. On November 11, 1620, they finally dropped anchor and came ashore.
The harsh New England winter was already well underway. Having no homes or shelter of any kind when they landed, before spring arrived, half of the 100 settlers had died. But that first year also brought unexpected blessings as some of the Indians in the area who had learned English were willing to help the Pilgrims by showing them many things they needed to survive, including how to plant Indian crops such as corn, and how to hunt and fish in that area.
The Pilgrims first harvest was bountiful — enough to fill their needs and help them through the coming winter. So even though it had been a harsh year, they still had reason to celebrate. The governor of Plymouth Colony therefore called a three-day festival, inviting the ninety Indians to join the 50 Pilgrims. This feast, which included times of thanks to God as well as athletic competitions and food and fellowship, is commonly celebrated as the first Thanksgiving festival in America. Edward Winslow, an early governor of Plymouth, wrote this account:
[O]ur harvest being gotten in, our Governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might, after a special manner, rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our labors. They four in one day killed as much as, with a little help beside, served the company almost a week. At which time, amongst other recreations, we exercised our arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and among the rest their greatest king, Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted; and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the plantation and bestowed on our governor, and upon the captain and others. And although it be not always so plentiful as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, let’s remember the history of this holiday and the hard work of these early pious Christians as we, too, take time to thank God for our blessings. From all of us at WallBuilders, Happy Thanksgiving!
(If you’re interested in more information on historic American Thanksgiving across the centuries, WallBuilders has a collection of Thanksgiving proclamations from various state governors & presidents as well as a collection of historical sermons on the Pilgrims and Thanksgiving celebrations.)
