About Patriot Statesman – Texas Edition

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” ~ John Adams

Our publication, the Patriot Statesman, was named in honor of our Founding Fathers who fled the oppressive state religion of England and set sail on a voyage to America. With dreams of freedom that resound to this very day, they worked to build our great nation. Leading desperate citizens in a full-scale revolution against the unjust British government oppression, they thirsted for freedom and risked life and limb to attain it. From their sacrifice was born our Constitution—the supreme law of the United States of America.

The Patriot Statesman is not a religious publication, nor solely a political publication. We are a news outlet for moral and religious readers, advertisers and columnists. We are inspired by the rich history of our nation, our Constitution, and all the glorious rights inherent in the First Amendment. ThePatriot Statesman operates with a refreshing Biblical worldview and is not ashamed of the original intent of the Founding Fathers. In fact, we embrace it.

Our Vision As our nation threatens to crumble from within, we remind America of the tried and true practices of a free, moral people. As our passionate editorial columnists, advertisers and commentators (you) weigh in, the Patriot Statesman seeks to reverse the watering down of Biblical principles and resurrect our moral and religious rights. We enjoy hearing from our patriotic audience and invite our readers to suggest topics and share links that elevate the glory of our nation.

A Publication Rich in History Our mission is to bolster the conservative voice and reverse the eroding values of our nation. Much like the extraordinary rebellion of our Founding Fathers, we publish news and opinions that are counter to the mainstream. We are inspired by the Preamble to the Constitution that has served as our nation’s cornerstone for over two centuries—the original platform from which would spring a government of the people, by the people, and for the people:

We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The First Amendment The Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787 and went into effect on March 4, 1789. Seven months later on October 11, 1798, John Adams wrote a letter to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts, declaring point blank:

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Adam’s famous quote is heralded proudly at the Patriot Statesman, and perfectly defines the mission of our publication. Adams was able to speak the truth thanks to the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, which states: “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.”

The Patriot Statesman celebrates this freedom and affirms it as a gift from God himself. We are entitled to freedom of religion—not freedom from religion— and under this system of government we have enjoyed more freedom and prosperity than any other population in the history of the world.

Reclaiming our Freedom of Speech and Religion Factions who despise our moral and religious freedoms have injured our nation. These include ungrateful recipients within our own citizenry, anti-Christian sects, and even foreign foes. Slowly but surely, they have chipped away at the foundation of religious freedom, banning children from the right to practice freedom of religious expression in schools and using the phrase “separation of church and state” as a hammer. The liberal “thought police” are out in full force… but the Patriot Statesman defies the censorship of a government run amuck. We push back with clarity and seek to remind the nation of the tremendous sacrifice of our forefathers—and their vision for America. Our mission is to reclaim our Biblically-based freedoms.

The So-Called “Wall” Today, many Americans believe that the “separation between church and state” is part and parcel of the constitution. But there is no such phrase in the Constitution.

Where did the phrase “wall of separation of church and state” derive? In 1802 Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to the Baptist Association in Danbury, Connecticut in which he excerpted one phrase from the First Amendment, noting that legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

In 1947, the Supreme Court laid the groundwork for the misuse of the phrase, citing Jefferson’s letter in a religious-based decision and thereby creating the Establishment Clause. Although our Founding Fathers saw religion as indispensible to the nation they were creating, the Supreme Court had played into the Left’s hand. Suddenly Americans were focused on “freedom from religion” rather than “freedom of religion.” This is a bastardization of our Founding Father’s intent. A moral and religious degradation has plagued us ever since. This degradation is the real enemy within America—and thePatriot Statesman speaks out to correct the erroneous interpretation.

    Trump Wins! Harris County Republicans Suffer Biggest Loss in History of the HCRP

    Last night’s presidential results were historic. For the first time in decades, Republicans will have a uniquely consolidated power base, controlling the White House, Senate, and House, as well as a majority of governorships. As a result, we should be able to appoint conservative justices, eliminate Obamacare, get rid of the Johnson Amendment (which censures the church), cut the national debt, open up the energy markets, protect religious liberties, and so much more. As my friends at AFA stated, “We were about to go over the cliff. The knockout punch was about to be delivered to the America that our Founding Fathers handed to us.

    Now It Is Your Time And Your Turn!

    Now it is your time! Do you ever see destructive things going on around you and wish you had the ability and opportunity to stop them? Like when you hear the occurrence of some tragedy, do you ever wish that you could have been in the right place at the right time, to prevent it?

    On Tuesday, November 3rd, you have an opportunity to do just that. If you live in the city of Houston, you will have the opportunity to vote NO to Proposition One, the “bathroom” or H.E.R.O. ordinance.

    Contrary to the proponents of this ordinance, it has nothing to do with equal rights (which are already protected under federal and state law), but everything to do with promotion of sexual deviance in our society, in an effort for us to accept yet one more assault on our common sense and decency.

    If you were to order pizza for dinner tonight, but the phone attendant taking your pizza order asked you if you wanted dark meat or white meat, or crispy or regular skin, what would you think? Perhaps you had dialed the wrong number?

    You might feel similarly by reading the Republican Party platform and comparing it to the words and actions of so-called “Republicans”, from Harris County to Washington D.C.

    Let’s take the City of Houston mayor’s race. We have two “Republican” candidates, Stephen Costello and Bill King.

    Support Lance Berkman Vote “No” on Proposition 1 Bathroom Ordinance

    Six time Major League Baseball All Star, Lance Berkman, recently took a bold principled stand in opposition to Houston Proposition 1 – The Bathroom Ordinance. The liberal left and LGBT community are attacking Lance Berkman for having the courage to stand on his principles. He needs our support.

    Lance Berkman is getting bashed in the sports media because he exerted his First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech by recording a radio commercial, opposing Houston’s Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance. His commercial began airing this past Thursday. The Bathroom Ordinance would allow troubled men, who claim to be women, to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.

    Houston City Council Is Legislating Immorality To Allow Boys Into The Girls Bathrooms and Showers

    For many years we have all heard from both the Right leaning Democrats and the Left leaning Republicans that we cannot “legislate morality”. While for now I will not address the stupidity of this I would like to make a few points for you to ponder.

    The City of Houston is trying to legislate morality, but in there their Godless hearts they will fist attempt to re-define “morality” before they legislate it so that it to include the sexually confused and the sexually perverted.

    When you go to vote during early voting and on November third, and hopefully you will vote, the first thing you will see is Proposition one, also known as the HERO or “bathroom” ordnance.
