Time to Choose. Restore the Constitution, or Allow the Forces of Evil to Continue to Stomp On It

My journey across the United States has been an interesting one. One thing I notice every time I travel is that the rest of the United States is nothing like California. However, anti-constitutionalism still lives in even these parts of the country. It hides in plain sight, pretending to be wrapped in the Stars and Stripes while conspiring to betray the foundations of our country that the Founding Fathers so wisely established. The news is filled with deception and evil perpetrated by the enemies of the Constitution, and Americans fall for it all of the time.

I received a message from a friend. He’s in North Carolina and came across a play about the Constitution. “How encouraging,” one might think on the surface, before looking deeper into what the whole thing is all about. He was skeptical about the play, and decided to do a little investigating before accepting it as a production by allies of the Constitution. “What the Constitution Means to Me” sounds like it is pro-Constitution on the surface, if you are gullible and not naturally a cynic like my friend. Then, he looked into it. And, as his gut suspected, “The main message in the play is if the constitution should be abolished or rewritten by the people who are in power now. Like I said, bunch of liberal BS.” The play teaches that the Constitution is a “living and breathing” document; something that changes with the whims of society, and the whims of the courts. If it is not a contract as originally intended, then it can be changed by simply adjusting language, or “interpreting” it through judicial fiat. “Living and Breathing” means that it is not a document for We the People, but a document for the politicians and judges to manipulate and adjust as the tyrants who seek to destroy it desire.

The swamp is deeper than President Trump even realized. According to the New York Sun, “Of the 2.2 million federal civil employees, only 4,000 are presidential appointees. The rest stay in their jobs from one administration to the next, protected by rules that make it nearly impossible to discipline or replace them. They overwhelmingly favor the Left. A staggering 95 percent of unionized federal employees who donate to political candidates give to Democrats, according to Open Secrets. Only a tiny 5 percent support Republicans.”

Not exactly news that the mainstream media will report. You don’t hear about it because they do everything to keep you in the dark. “Nothing to see here.” If you try to expose to anyone that the system is rigged, and the enemy is inside the gate, you are labeled a spreader of misinformation, and you are silenced. The war against leftism (everything to the left of the Constitution) is not only fought out in the open, but deep in the jungles of government bureaucracy and in the shadows of hidden corridors. We have ceased to be a republic not only because the Marxists deep in the trenches of government work to turn us into a democracy, but also because those deep and dark corners of government are already openly conspiring against America in the hopes of changing our system into a utopianist model that the Founding Fathers never intended. If we do nothing, the cancer will continue to spread.

They change the laws as they want, more often than nit behind closed doors, and sometimes in plain view, to fit their agenda. They use deception and their own committees and allies to rule mercilessly as they distract you with social issues that are beyond insane. They launch psyops to keep us off-balance, and bickering with each other. They choose what hits the headlines, and in Georgia as they attack President Trump they seek to silence him, and throw him behind bars. The truth is, after they are done with Trump, they will turn on the rest of America.

It is time that we stop accepting their lies, and stop playing the game according to their rules.

In 2021, I traveled to Corpus Christi, Texas to visit patriots who are doing what they can to keep their State in line with the Constitution. In Diamondhead, Mississippi I had a meal with a group of people trying to educate those around them about the Constitution. In Nashville, Tennessee I met with a group of movers and shakers to strategize on what to do next. In Kentucky I fellowshipped with fellow Christians at The Ark and Creation Museum. Then, in Colorado Springs, I spoke on stage to a crowd hungry for the truth, and ready to do the things necessary to restore our Constitutional Federal Republic. Last year I did the same in Denver, Colorado. In 2023, Mr. Constitution was sent to Washington D.C., thanks to donations by members of my Constitution Classes in Southern California, and last Monday I spoke in Lake Havasu City the day after Constitution Day to an eager crowd and a wonderful online audience. Now, I am in Michigan for the State GOP Convention. I take the stage tomorrow with people like Dinesh D’Souza, Kari Lake, and Jim Caviezel.

It turns out the difficulties inside the GOP is not only a California thing. The experience so far, in relation to my relationship with the Michigan Republican Party, has been challenging. I have experienced the same issues with the Michigan GOP I have seen in California, and throughout the country. Our Republican Party has been infiltrated, and the enemy has convinced much of the party’s faithful to follow the same destructive path our colleagues in the Democrat Party have been following.

The Republican Party is not our salvation, nor should it be. It is a vessel we need to take back, and use to steer American back to the original intent of the Constitution. The political parties are tools, not ways of life. The left is wielding the Democrat Party like a deadly weapon, should we not regain control of the GOP and use it for the purposes of restoring the Constitution, putting We the People back in control, and defeating the enemies of liberty and justice?

The reality is, The Constitution does not begin its Preamble with the words, “We the Politicians,” “We the Judges,” nor “We the Ideologically Faithful.” It begins with the words, “We the People.” Restoring the Constitution will not begin in Washington, it will not be carried out by politicians nor political parties. The judges, politicians, and bureaucrats are not largely our allies. Sure, a few of them are, but for the most part, we are on our own. It is up to We the People; average, everyday Americans, who love this country, appreciate its founding, and recognize the Constitution as a godly foundation of our exceptional system, to rid the halls of government of the cockroaches who are breeding there.

It is clear to me that we are at war. The hard-left uses strategies and tactics of war, and we are too busy bickering among ourselves over petty issues. The enemy has done all it can to kill the mechanisms and basic republican functions of our constitutional federal republic. The truth is the enemy’s goals are as clear as can be. They want President Donald Trump in a prison cell, and they want to strip you of your liberty and ability to assemble, speak publicly, write freely, debate, run for office, and question anything that they do. And then, when they are finished with their task of silencing us, they will take away our guns, and pursue laws targeting the free exercise of our religious beliefs.

They have weaponized the federal government, and are working to do the same in each of our States, and even in our local governmental offices such as city councils and school boards. Their vicious tactics should concern EVERY American!

It’s not just the Democrats. Remember, they have infiltrated the GOP as well, and some of them even call themselves Conservatives. The truth is, they do not plan to stand up for LIBERTY or true constitutional JUSTICE. They play by their own rulebook, and operate in a world of double-standards. It is time for us to speak up, gather together, and tackle the enemy once and for all.

But, I can’t do this alone. I need you on my team. I need your support so that I can continue my quest to educate, advocate, and restore the Constitution.

Join me by adding your name to our newsletter, and joining the fight. For less than the price of a cup of coffee at one of those star-struck coffee houses you can ensure that I can continue to educate and advocate on the radio, in podcasts, in videos, on Political Pistachio, in the classroom, and on the road as I travel the country with one message: “We must return to the Moral Foundation of the United States Constitution if we are going to turn things around.” We must be educated if we are to advocate, and we need to be advocating TOGETHER!!!

Enough is enough. You have the ability to help me turn things around. It is not hopeless. They are fallible. They CAN be defeated. It will not be easy, it is a long process that begins with Constitutional Education — but it can be done.

In these challenging times we need to work together, and find encouragement through fellowship with each other as we prepare for the battles that we must win.

Working together, we can — and we WILL — restore the Constitution, and save our country.

United We Stand, Combined We Kick Butt.

The word “democracy” makes me climb the walls, especially when the word is used to describe the United States.  I can’t count how many times politicians on both sides of the aisle, and even some of my favorite commentators, refer to this country as a democracy.  “We must save our democracy,” we hear ad nauseam.  In the pledge of allegiance we don’t recite the salute to the flag for the “democracy” for which it stands.  The word in that phrase is “republic.”  And we all know the story about the woman (Elizabeth Powel) who approached Benjamin Franklin after the Constitutional Convention concluded during the summer of 1787, right?  She asked, “Doctor, what have you given us?  A republic, or a monarchy?”  He responded, “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.”


The Founding Fathers specifically did not use the word “democracy” in any of our founding documents because the United States was never intended to be a democracy.  John Adams proclaimed after looking back in history, “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”  James Madison provided, in one of his federalist paper writings, “Democracies have been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death.”  Alexander Hamilton observed, “…ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government; their very character was tyranny.”  John Marshall provided, “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”  According to John Quincy Adams, “The experience of all former ages had shown that of all human governments, democracy was the most unstable, fluctuating and short-lived.”  And finally, Thomas Jefferson explained in a letter in 1790, “The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind.”


I am sure many of us are familiar with the lamb versus the wolves adage; “Democracy is four wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.”  I would like to adjust it and say that “a republic is four wolves voting for what to have for dinner, and a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”


Understanding the difference between a democracy and a republic, Winston Churchill once quipped, “The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”


Democracy excludes the rights of the minority.  Democracy becomes the playground of the majority, a situation commonly known as “majority rules,” or “the tyranny of the majority.”  Democracy is when fifty-one percent of the voters may vote away the rights of the other forty-nine percent.  “Mob rule.”


This is not to devalue the importance of the consent of the governed.  While democracy is not the foundation of the American System, democratic processes do indeed occupy the American governmental system in many places, ensuring that the various governmental bodies operate due to a mixture of direct and indirect influence by the vote of the people.  The indirect influence by the people on those parts of government includes various checks and balances, making our system one that functions under a mixed constitution; a republic, rather than a democracy.


The distinction between democracy and republic was so important that James Madison explained in five of his federalist essays the difference between a republic, and a democracy.


Through democracy the ruling class maneuvers and takes possession of the offices that are supposed to belong to the people.  They claim they were democratically voted in, but their methods are littered with corruption, collusion, and fraud.  The tyrants have no interest in our traditions and freedom.  With a mindset focused on command control from a centralized government with all power consolidated under one part of government, they seek to control the car you drive (if they desire you to drive a vehicle at all), what kind of stove you have, how much water your toilet uses, the type of light bulb you are allowed to use, what you are allowed to think and say with the claim that it is only to make sure that nobody is hateful to each other.  They claim it is their job to interpret the law and the Constitution so that they may define what it says, and they claim to have reached a consensus in medicine and science so that they may determine if you are mentally ill, if you should be allowed to be armed, and so that they may proclaim emergencies gives them even more power to dictate their will upon the public.  We are in a state of never-ending emergency, according to the tyrants; giving them the ability to make laws and mandates to save us from climate change, rampaging viruses, and whatever else they can cook up.  Obey, and life will be fine.  Dissent, and you may serve in federal prison for daring to be seditious, and an insurrectionist.


Wasn’t it amazing how during the COVID lockdowns their enemies like small business owners and churches, were forced to shut down, but their allies were considered “essential,” and carried out business as usual, as long as you wore a worthless mask.


Democracy always transitions to oligarchy, the many ruled over by the few.  Our system finds its foundations in the beliefs of the Saxons who settled in Britain, and Mosaic Law in the Old Testament of the Bible.  Western Civilization owes its extraordinary run over the last two and a half centuries to the United States Constitution which was written based on Saxon and Christian principles.  Our heritage is one of a godly foundation and construction influenced directly by Christianity.  America doesn’t work without Liberty, God and these Truths which are self-evident. 


Thomas Jefferson explained, “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath?  Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever…”.


“A Republic if You Can Keep It,” unless we decided to lose it to democracy, and ultimately, tyranny of the majority and an oligarchy.

Kari Lake Pic with Doug in Havasu

Constitution Week, Mr. Constitution

Yesterday the Constitution Week Celebration in Lake Havasu City launched.  I had the opportunity to meet with the people behind the event, reacquaint with Tina Peters, and meet momentarily with Kari Lake.  I will be speaking on Monday Night at the event (see the flyer below).  Then, I will be on my way to Mackinac Island in Michigan to be a speaker for the Michigan State GOP, sharing the stage with Dinesh D’Souza, Jim Caviezel, Kari Lake, and Vivek Ramaswamy.  Hopefully, we will succeed in ensuring we have video of each of the events.

By the way, in that picture with Kari Lake, the reason I am holding three of my books (Repeal Democracy, C.R.E.A.T.O.R., and An American Promise of Liberty) is because I am giving them to her.  A friend of mine purchased them for this eventuality way back last October, convinced that I would be meeting Kari Lake; and he was right, just eleven months off.
