The most common use of the term “bastard” refers to a child who is born from illegitimate means. Marriage is what makes a child “legitimate.” Any child produced outside of a legal-marriage was once considered “illegitimate” because he/she was not under the authority of a father.
Illegitimacy is destroying America. A father-less generation of children is roaming the streets of America in search of authority. Recent statistics show that over 40% of all babies born in America are bastards.
To many of those children, government becomes the father. We have seen the effects that “government-parenthood” has had on this nation. A government-paycheck does not a father make.
But the larger issue is that our Federal Government has become bastardized. At its origin, the Federal Government was the birth-child of the thirteen colonies. “We the People of the United States” gave birth to the Federal Government, and, as Thomas Jefferson said, tied it “down with the chains of the Constitution.”
Follow me now. The Federal Government was the birth child of the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution was the spawn of the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration received its authority from the elected representatives of the thirteen States who gathered at Independence Hall in Philadelphia and signed it. Those elected representatives received their authority from the individual citizens in the independent states. The individual-citizens were endowed with the authority as a birthright from their Creator. The Creator was, and still is, the ultimate authority over the individual. He IS the Father of all.
Today, our “government” is a bastard-child. It has usurped authority that it has no claim to. In our system of self-government, the Federal Government is chained down by the Constitution. The first sentence of the Preamble to the Constitution identifies the authority structure. “We the People of the United States…”
All government authority in the United States emanates from God, the granter of all rights, through the people, the recipients of all rights, to the government, the protector of all rights. But a coup has taken place in America. The “government” has been “emancipated” from the constraints of the Father. A government that no longer answers to the legitimate authority has become a “bastard” child.
That is what identifies a bastard…a child with no legitimate authority figure. The Federal Government is a “bastard” because it no longer comes under the authority of its Father.
Look at what is going on in Washington. Because we no longer recognize from were governmental authority comes, our three branches of government have lost sight of their legitimate purpose. Our Founders gave us three branches of government based on Isaiah 33:22 For the Lord is our JUDGE, the Lord is our LAWGIVER, the Lord is our KING; He will save us.
Our government is out of control. It has become an unruly step-child. Just like a family, the authority must be established under the headship of the Father. Only the “Father” can give government, and its voice, legitimacy.
Because of my efforts in working with the Personhood movement I constantly hear Roe V Wade referenced as a reason not to put it on the ballot. The Pro-Life movement lives in fear of the Supreme Court and their bastardized-authority. It is time the courts came under authority of the Father.
A Supreme Court decision is not law. It is merely an “opinion” issued by a “court.” Roe V Wade is not the “Law of the Land,” as we are so often told.
Legislatures make laws and courts offer opinions on those laws. Currently in America, Abortion is illegal in 44 States. Right now, according to the laws in Ohio, abortion is illegal. A Supreme Court “opinion” cannot overturn a legitimate law. We just think it does. It is time for the State of Ohio to reclaim its legal authority and declare abortion illegal within our borders. It is time for the states to defy the bastards.
In 2005 in the case of Gonzales v Raich the Supreme Court opined that medical use of marijuana was illegal in all fifty states. You heard me right. The “law of the land” regarding marijuana is that it is illegal. Yet currently, there are sixteen states that permit the medical use of marijuana.
On September 21, 1996 President Bill Clinton signed into law, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman. Federal courts all across this nation have upheld the legality of the law. Yet today, six states permit homosexual marriage. Just last year the Obama administration said that it would no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act, in clear violation of established law.
I could go on. The Federal Government and the Federal Courts are operating with illegitimate authority. It is a perfect example of the children telling the parents what to do.
And it will only get worse. It is time for the states to defy the bastards!! It is our only hope of surviving as a free nation.
In Worchester v Georgia 1832 President Andrew Jackson received an unfavorable ruling from the John Marshall-led Supreme Court. His legendary response was "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!" Still today, the Supreme Court has no enforcement powers for its illegitimate rulings. In a later writing President Jackson went on to say, "...the decision of the Supreme Court has fell still born, and they find that they cannot coerce Georgia to yield to its mandate."
The Constitution is under assault because our government is a bastardized-entity that has divorced itself from the “laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.” Without the foundations of the Scriptures to stand upon, our entire Federal Government has its feet firmly planted in thin air…
In 1803 in Marbury v Madison the SCOTUS declared "a law repugnant to the Constitution is null and void." That still holds true today.
The courts have told us in the past that:
• Black men were 3/5 of a human being
• Separate but equal was constitutional.
• Women had no right to vote.
Today they want to tell us that:
• The right to bear arms is not absolute.
• The right to privacy no longer applies to individuals.
• Freedom of speech, religion, and assembly are conditional.
• The Right to Life applies only to “wanted” children.
Can you trust the courts to protect your rights? What if they don’t? I say it is time to defy the bastards. Our children’s future depends on it. Let’s recriminalize abortion in Ohio.
Thomas Jefferson, who authored the Declaration, said this, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” And this “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God.”
This nation was birthed in rebellion. Jesus’ death was a result of rebellion against illegitimate authority. The Apostle Paul wrote nearly two-thirds of the New Testament, much of it from jail, in rebellion against illegitimate religious authority. Peter said “We ought to obey God rather than man.” We are not the first people to have been in this predicament.
Ultimately, that is a decision that we are all going to have to make. At what point does a man stand up and say “enough is enough?”
Aye. Fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live. At least awhile... And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance -- just one chance -- to come back here and tell our enemies that they make take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!! -Braveheart
Last week the Federal Government seized ALL power over the lives of individual Americans. Now they can lock you up without charges, kill you if the President thinks you are a danger to America, arrest you for picketing out side an event where an elected official is present, and force you to pay for things that are in direct conflict with your conscience.
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” -Thomas Jefferson.
Are you willing to trust the governance of your liberties to those who cannot govern themselves?

The battle for liberty will be fought in the individual states, not in the White House. Instead of putting all of our eggs in the 2012 presidential basket, it is imperative that we focus instead on what is going on in our own back yard.
The States created the Federal Government. The only power they have over us is the power we give unto them. Those in Washington DC no longer represent “the people.”
If we go down, let’s go down, standing up. It is time for the states to defy the bastards!
