800 Years of the Magna Carta Prove the Constitution is NOT Irrelevant [+video]

The Constitution is NOT irrelevant and out dated as the progressives demand. But WE need to know WHY that is a lie.

Happy Birthday Magna Carta and enter in the perfect reason to talk and teach about the history of our Constitution and its relevance today!

THIS VIDEO WILL SET THE STAGE!

This is a brief history as told in detail by the above video:

In 1100 the people of England came together to force King Henry to sign the 1100 Charter of Liberties promising (among other things), that: 1) Government would no longer be evil and oppressive, 2) That the men making and enforcing the laws cannot hold themselves above the law and 3) People would not be forced to buy their inheritance from the government.

In 1215 the people took Liberty into their own hands. They got fed up with King John and his violations of the 1100 Charter of Liberties and they came together to create the Magna Carta of 1215. The Magna Carta provided instructions to the government about how to live up to the 1100 Charter of Liberties. The Magna Carta created a representative style government that put the people over the King. Our 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, & 8th Amendments of our Bill of Rights all come from clauses 38-40 of the Magna Carta. “The Right to Petition the Government For a Redress Of Our Grievances,” the last Liberty identified in our 1st Amendment was first codified in the Magna Carta.

This Magna Carta, put the people in direct control of the government and set the stage for three more advances in Liberty.

1) The Petition of Right of 1628, declaring that Liberty is the inherent possession of men and not the gift of government.

2) The Grand Remonstrance of 1641, recognizing that oppressive government always operates under the same M.O.: Corruption of the Courts, Infiltration of Foreign Law, Government diminishing the property Rights of the people, Government creation of fiat to control the monetary system, and Government disarming the people while keeping the Government armed.

3) The English Bill of Rights of 1689, reinforcing that maintaining Separation of Powers is essential in preserving Liberty. In 1688 they declared that it will be the complete destruction of Liberty when the Executive Branch is allowed to write law, set aside law, and over turn law, when those are powers reserved to the Legislative Branch alone.

These five documents (Charter of Liberties, Magna Carta, Petition of Right of 1628, Grand Remonstrance of 1641, and the English Bill of Rights of 1689) make the Constitution of our Founders. These five documents form the foundation of our Constitution and are the reason why John Adams said in 1765,

“Liberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”

Without the Magna Carta of 1215, there would be no Declaration of Independence, no Constitution, and no Bill of Rights. We have this history to thank for our Liberty today. So let’s celebrate it and teach the truth that can defeat the progressive lies.

  • We the People ALERT!!!

    KrisAnne Hall: “The Magna Carta created a representative style government that put the people over the King [as did the US Constitution].”

    Any government that represents one person (as in a king) or thousands or even millions (as in the people) over Yahweh as their Sovereign is merely two different forms of man doing that which is right in their own eyes, per Judges 21:25. Numbers don’t change anything.

    Christians, we’ve been had! HOW IN THE WORLD can we think that a government of, by, and for the people based upon capricious Enlightenment and Masonic equates to a government of, by, and for God established upon His immutable moral law? To promote a government of, by, and for the people is the antithesis of promoting a government of, by, and for God.

      We the People Troll ALERT!!!

      Ted R. Weiland is a radical leftist community organizer, attempting to organize us to hate the U.S. Constitution for fun and profit.

      • no more mr. nice guy

        You were looking in the blame shifting mirror when you rifled off that fire; ready; aim hallucination. Read what the man wrote. Unlike the ugly and evil, he says what he means and he means what he says. His crystal clear clarity is impeccable.

        • Grundune

          Sorry to inform you, but Ted R. Weiland and I had an extensive conversation and I can speak from authority when I say the man’s goal is to stir up resentment and disgust for the one document that has provided protection for Americans for over two centuries, the U.S. Constitution.

          • no more mr. nice guy

            Mr. Weiland should be stirring up resentment and disgust for the US Constitution because the US Constitution is unconstitutional to the Itself. What we have is a convolution of a constitution – not a constitution. The word constitution comes in part from a Latin word that means “stand-firm”. In order for a constitution to stand firm it must be based on transcendent truths and timeless principles.

            The founders surely knew what the transcendent truths and timeless principles were. But none of these truths or principles were included – even by inference – in the US constitution. Principle means doing the same exact thing under different circumstances.

            As just one of countless examples, John Adams, our second president and the father of the American Navy made what could arguably be the most profound statement ever uttered by a founder when he said: “Morality alone is immortal. All the rest is balloon and bubble from the cradle to the grave.” Morality never made it into the constitution. Even God didn’t make the cut.

          • Grundune

            You sound like Ted R. Weiland. Are you sure you don’t work for him and are blogging under one of several aliases?

          • We read Scripture. We are Legion.

          • Grundune

            Yes, I though I recognized you. You are the unclean spirit cast out of a man and into swine.

          • no more mr. nice guy

            No! But I will.

          • no more mr. nice guy

            I severed my relationship with Ted this year for a different reason. Nevertheless, he is pin-point-perfectly correct about the vagaries of the US Convolution.

            The US Convolution is little more than a rule book with escape routes in abundance which allow for the rules to be overlooked, forgotten or ignored whenever the situation or the special interests so decide. We are not a country of laws. We are a country of lawyers; politicians; judges and special interests [mostly all lawyers] who buy the offices held for those who covet them provided of course that those who covet act on behalf of the special interests once what the covet is secured.

            In the USA you can buy; change; or find exception to any law if you have enough money to bend logic; reason; and common sense.

            After the constitution was ratified in Philadelphia, a citizen approached Benjamin Franklin and asked what had happened. Benjamin Franklin’s response says it all: “Madam, what you have is a republic if you can keep it.” Why didn’t Franklin say: “Madam, what we have is a republic and it’s built to last”?

          • Grundune

            Finally someone who can respond with honest concerns and without personal insults.
            Franklin was a wise man and he knew that a constitutional republic can only survive if the governed are righteous. Yes, the Constitution is battered and misinterpreted, but it is still the legal basis for protecting our God-given rights.
            The Bible is not a legal document, it was not written with the intent of being a legal document and is not recognized by anyone as such. To try and make the Bible the law of the land would be a disaster. Even if everyone in this country agreed to do it in the beginning, very soon, differing interpretations would arise, and without a Prophet of God to settle differences exactly as God directs, chaos would ensue.
            No, it is not the U.S. Constitution that is at fault, it is the unrighteousness of certain people working against it and the ignorance of the population swayed by them.
            Ted R. Weiland presents as a destroyer of the Constitution, which would lead to the destruction of our constitutional republic. He doesn’t see it, but he is one of the unrighteous that would destroy our republic. What he thinks will replace it is obvious but he doesn’t have a clue either or won’t admit it.
            Waging a fight without a plan as to what comes after the fight’s won, is a classic characteristic of the radical Marxist/socialist movement. By destroying the U. S. Constitution, leftists will have destroyed the basis of our government and they plan to fill the vacuum with tyranny.
            But leftist tyranny is an unworkable governance. It fails every time it’s tried with tremendous suffering and loss of life.
            I know you deride the Constitution, calling it the Convolution, but do you have anything BETTER that CAN take its place?

          • no more mr. nice guy

            At best the constitution is an erector set missing vital parts – parts even if in place would make the erector set worthless because the erector set allows anything to enter.

          • Grundune

            So back to my question. Do you have something better then the U.S. Constitution that you can implement?

          • no more mr. nice guy

            Did you read what was fully written. I had troubles with my computer. You may have missed the entirety of my response.

          • Grundune

            I see it now. Don’t know if I missed it or it wasn’t there.

            I adamantly agree with your 5 things that should be institutionalized. What a wonderful country we would have, limited government, people devoted to obeying the 10 commandments, work enthroned as a ruling principle in the hearts of man so every family is economically strong and there is wealth to voluntarily devote to charity.

            And yes, the Constitution has been worked over by corrupt jurists with harmful agendas. And there doesn’t seem to be enough will of the people to correct the damage or even recognize what they have allowed to happen.

            However, Ted’s agenda is to discard it with no workable plan to specifically implement something better. And I do mean specifically.

            Based on the dumbed down education system and the influx of uneducated folks who are ignorant of the values and principles that make for a free society, I don’t see a way to either fix or replace the Constitution.

            However, I would be happy to review any amendments or rewrites that could be proposed and would achieve those five objectives.

          • no more mr. nice guy

            Thank you! I knew we were far closer than piecemeal sound bites would reveal.

            How can we connect? To pull off what is needed will require forming up around the governmental work to be done far differently than what we have. And it is so possible and the right people would, I believe, rally around it because of its supreme clarity, simplicity and certitude. I hope we can connect.
            Thank you again.
