The Weekly Sam: Make America Literate Again with Alpha-Phonics

Sam Blumenfeld dedicated his life to reintroducing Americans to  phonics.  He created the easy-to use “Alpha-Phonics”  as a means to do just that.   He wrote extensively on how the elites worked to dumb our nation down, and the use of look-say was one of the tools in their arsenal.   Please help make America Literate Again by using Sam’ “Alpha-Phonics.”  Here is a link to “Alpha-Phonics” which includes all 128 lessons in either audio or video:  http://campconstitution.net/blumenfelds-alphaphonics/

George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation 1789 and Donald Trump’s 2017 Thanksgiving Proclamation

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor– and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be– That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks–for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions– to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us–and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

THANKSGIVING DAY, 2017

– – – – – – –

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

On Thanksgiving Day, as we have for nearly four centuries, Americans give thanks to Almighty God for our abundant blessings.  We gather with the people we love to show gratitude for our freedom, for our friends and families, and for the prosperous Nation we call home.

In July 1620, more than 100 Pilgrims boarded the Mayflower, fleeing religious persecution and seeking freedom and opportunity in a new and unfamiliar place.  These dauntless souls arrived in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in the freezing cold of December 1620.  They were greeted by sickness and severe weather, and quickly lost 46 of their fellow travelers.  Those who endured the incredible hardship of their first year in America, however, had many reasons for gratitude.  They had survived.  They were free.  And, with the help of the Wampanoag tribe, and a bountiful harvest, they were regaining their health and strength.  In thanks to God for these blessings, the new governor of the Plymouth Colony, William Bradford, proclaimed a day of thanksgiving and gathered with the Wampanoag tribe for three days of celebration.

For the next two centuries, many individual colonies and states, primarily in the Northeast, carried on the tradition of fall Thanksgiving festivities.  But each state celebrated it on a different day, and sometime on an occasional basis.  It was not until 1863 that the holiday was celebrated on one day, nationwide.  In the aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg, of one of the bloodiest battles of our Nation’s Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that the country would set aside one day to remember its many blessings.  “In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity,” President Lincoln proclaimed, we recall the “bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come.”  As President Lincoln recognized: “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, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.”

Today, we continue to celebrate Thanksgiving with a grateful and charitable spirit.  When we open our hearts and extend our hands to those in need, we show humility for the bountiful gifts we have received.  In the aftermath of a succession of tragedies that have stunned and shocked our Nation — Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria; the wildfires that ravaged the West; and, the horrific acts of violence and terror in Las Vegas, New York City, and Sutherland Springs — we have witnessed the generous nature of the American people.  In the midst of heartache and turmoil, we are grateful for the swift action of the first responders, law enforcement personnel, military and medical professionals, volunteers, and everyday heroes who embodied our infinite capacity to extend compassion and humanity to our fellow man.  As we mourn these painful events, we are ever confident that the perseverance and optimism of the American people will prevail.

We can see, in the courageous Pilgrims who stood on Plymouth Rock in new land, the intrepidness that lies at the core of our American spirit.  Just as the Pilgrims did, today Americans stand strong, willing to fight for their families and their futures, to uphold our values, and to confront any challenge.

This Thanksgiving, in addition to rejoicing in precious time spent with loved ones, let us find ways to serve and encourage each other in both word and deed.  We also offer a special word of thanks for the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, many of whom must celebrate this holiday separated from the ones for whom they are most thankful.  As one people, we seek God’s protection, guidance, and wisdom, as we stand humbled by the abundance of our great Nation and the blessings of freedom, family, and faith.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 23, 2017, as a National Day of Thanksgiving.  I encourage all Americans to gather, in homes and places of worship, to offer a prayer of thanks to God for our many blessings.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventeenth day of November, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

The Weekly Sam: On Visiting Old GI Haunts

While I knew that Sam Blumenfeld was a WW II veteran, he spoke little of his military experience.  It wasn’t until he passed away, and had the opportunity to go through his library that I learned of his military service.  Sam was an artilleryman in the U.S. Army and send to Northern Italy in March of 1945.  Sam was involved in escorting German POWs and wrote a poem about taking pity on the German soldiers and how he offered his rations to one.  In this linked article, Sam writes about his return visit to Italy and the family he befriended:  http://blumenfeld.campconstitution.net/personal/On%20Revisiting%20Old%20GI%20Haunts.pdf   

 

 

 

 

United Nations Day of Shame: The House That Hiss Built

Today marks the 72nd anniversary of the “House that Hiss Built.”   The United Nations charter is dimetrically opossed the U.S. Constitution.  Thankfully, more and more Americans are learning the truth about this world-government, racist and anti-freedom organization.  There is currently a bill in the House of Representatives H.R. 193 sponsored by Congressman Rodgers of  Alabama calling for the U.S. to get out of the United Nations:    Alabama https://www.congress.gov/billngress/house-bill/193//115th-co

The Weekly Sam: How the Left Created the Neo-Nazi Movement

Sam Blumenfeld wrote a manuscript on how the Left in the United States created the Neo Nazi Movement.  He did this project in the early 1960s, but the book was never published.  During the hight of forced busing in Boston, I observed how the Neo Nazis and Communists came to Boston and worked hard to promote racial termoil.  As Alphonse Karr said “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

This copy below is from the introduction:

Provocateur
This book describes a conspiracy to destroy our country,
and demonstates the kind of men who are drawn into such
conspiracies. It portrays a particular man who spent day in
and day out feverishly working for the destruction of the
American nation. Many American have had experience, at least
during World War II, with the Nazi mentality. But until now, ..
the American Nazi movement, whose purpose it was to disrupt
and destroy conservative American tradition, and to forment
anti-Jewish and racist agitation, has been poorly and improperly
understood. This American Nazi movement was led by George
Lincoln Rockwell, a native, old-stock American.
