Coming to the Rescue of Our Nation

Intro:

This is a quote from Daniel Webster, “The people of the United States by a countless majority are attached to the Constitution. If they shall be convinced that is in danger, they will come to its rescue and save it.”

Rick:

Well, it’s exactly what we’re doing on this program- coming to the rescue of our nation to save that Constitution that’s been under attack for so long now, and so many negative things that have happened. So, we’re going to bring you some tools on how to save the Constitution. That’s what Foundations of Freedom is here on WallBuller’s live!

In fact, we’re always talking about today’s hottest topics on policy and faith in the culture. But, we also always address those issues from a Biblical, historical, and constitutional perspective. We do Foundations of Freedom Thursday because it’s a chance for you to ask the questions so you can drive the conversation. But, then we take that question and dive into those founding principles and bring to life those principles that do produce a good society.

You can find out more about us at WallBuildersLive.com. You can also go to WallBuilders.com, our main website, and you can get some of those tools, the Constitution class, the Foundations of Freedom television program, and so many other tools that you can use in your Sunday school class, at church, or in your home, in your homeschool curriculum. Take those tools and use them to educate yourself and the people in your life so that you can be a part of that solution.

All right, we’re going to jump into some of those questions today. David Barton is with us to help answer them. He’s America’s premier historian and the founder of WallBuilders. Tim Barton is here with us as well, a national speaker, pastor, and the president of WallBuilders. My name is Rick Green. I’m a former Texas legislator.

Is this a Cry-Wolf Strategy that the Democrats Are Using?

Guys, I’m ready to dive into some questions. How about you guys?

Tim:

Let’s do it!

Rick:

All right. First one is coming from Isabel in Seattle Washington. She said, “I’ve been listening to your podcast for about four months. I love learning new things about our Constitution and history. I graduated with a political science and law degree but ‘surprise,’ they never mentioned the important historical aspects of the Constitution like you guys do. Anyway, I really love keeping up with the Supreme Court. Currently Brett Kavanaugh is under hot water with the sexual assault accusations. I sometimes feel like this is a cry-wolf strategy that the Democrats have started using, especially to prevent Kavanaugh from being selected. However, as a woman myself, I don’t want to take away the stories of other women when they could potentially be true. How do we balance this, and how do we know which stories are true? Kavanaugh looks like a really nice family man, and I can’t imagine those accusations be true. But at the same time, Bill Cosby was a nice guy too. Thanks for your time with this question.”

Well, Isabel, great question, and thank you so much for listening. I feel your pain, girl! Because, that’s exactly what happened to me in law school. They didn’t teach me any of these things that I was able to learn from David.

It’s just been a pleasure to be able to learn so much over the last couple of decades studying with David Barton and actually going to the Founding Fathers themselves. Instead of just listening to some professor pontificate about what he thinks the founders believed. The great thing about the Bartons and WallBuilders is you get to go to the original documents, and that’s what we love doing here on WallBuilders Live! So, thank you, Isabel. Fantastic question and really appreciate your comments.

All right, David, Tim, good question. How do you know? You’ve got this guy that obviously looks and sounds to me like he’s telling the truth. I mean, his testimony was very heartfelt. But, like Isabel is saying, you want to make sure you’re not just ignoring the the potential accusers out there as well.

David:

Yeah, it’s a great question. We don’t want to get to the politics of it or anything related to the politics of Republicans versus Democrat or the position of the Senate and confirming the nominee.

The Big Difference between Kavanaugh and Bill Cosby

What I want to get into is the constitutional side of what’s going on here. I love her question. It’s a great comparison because, yeah Kavanaugh looks good, but you know what? So did Bill Cosby. She’s exactly right. Now here’s the question. What’s the big difference between Kavanaugh and Bill Cosby?

Tim:

Comedian versus a judge.

Rick:

I started to say, “number of accusers.”

Tim:

Black person versus white.

David:

From a constitutional standpoint, what’s the difference between the two?

Rick:

Other than evidence and lack? Evidence of one and lack —

David:

Bill Cosby went through a trial, went through evidence, went through multiple witnesses, had representation.

Rick:

Had due process.

David:

He had due process; he was informed of the accusers against him. He got to confront those accusers–everything.

Rick:

That’s a great point.

It’s Whether There’s Evidence

David:

It’s a totally, totally, totally different. It’s not whether they’re a nice guy or not; it’s whether there’s evidence. And when you look–let me just start with: Where did this charge even come from?

Rick:

And by the way, while you’re talking about evidence and due process, let’s not forget the prosecutor from Arizona that really looked into this and questioned both of them. I mean, she said that there’s no way any prosecutor in the country would have filed charges on this or are pursued this. So, the difference in evidence —

David:

She’s been doing it for 25 years, and she heads a department that does sexual assault cases.

Rick:

Right.

David:

I mean, she’s all over this and said, “There is no way this goes forward.” Now, what percentage of the American people do you think heard the message that this thing is pure accusation and would not go forward to a court of law? That’s not the intent. That’s not what this thing was; it was a political trial.

This goes back to the days of Europe when you had star chamber courts, High Commissioner courts, admiralty courts etc. Where the courts were not courts of justice. They were designed to be arms of the state to move the politics forward. And what we saw with Kavanaugh’s so far, is an attempt to move this thing forward on a political basis.

Obstruction of Justice

Now if you take the due process, the constitutional side of this, there’s a lot of problems with this. I mean this thing originated with information that was given to Feinstein’s office months ago. She did nothing with it. Now can we call that “obstruction of justice,” that you’re not bringing a crime to light? You’re not reporting a crime that’s occurred. I mean, right off the bat let’s deal with that issue. Why is Kavanaugh on the hot seat when this has been known for months and nothing was done with it? So, that that makes it more like a star chamber court, more like those those European courts that the Pilgrims and Puritans and William Penn and all those guys had to deal with.

Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty

Then,  in America, our presumption is unlike the Napoleonic Code, unlike France, unlike most of Europe, you are innocent until proven guilty. And so at this point, we have tainted merely by the volume of the charges. We have taken charge as we have multiplied them; we have put them all over networks. We have compliant networks that are happy to run this 24/7 for weeks on end. That’s not the way the justice system works. So we’re now back to that political endgame. Did he have the ability to confront the accuser. No. As a matter of fact, you mentioned that the lady who’s been in it 25 years, dealing with the stuff, prosecuting sexual assaults, that she said this would not go forward. It was striking to me what Lindsey Graham did in the speech he gave.

I’ve got to tell you, I’ve been with Lindsey Graham. We’ve done pro-life events together in South Carolina. He’s not necessarily a stalwart conservative voter in any way, shape, fashion, or form. But one of the things I had forgotten about Lindsey was he was a judge and a prosecutor and a defense attorney. So, not only has he sat on the bench, he’s argued both sides: but plaintiff and defendant. And so, one of the points that Lindsay made that I thought was really strong, he says, “Based on what we’ve heard, you could not get a search warrant or an arrest warrant; because, you don’t know the location, you don’t know the time. There’s no corroboration.” He accused Feinstein of lying in wait, and he said, “She can’t tell me the house, the city; she can’t tell me the month. She can’t tell me the year.” The presumption of innocence goes in Kavanaugh’s direction, and that is the constitutional, appropriate direction.

Review the Fourth Through the Eighth Amendments

So, what has happened thus far has been really kind of like a show trial. But the constitutional due process, the Fourth through the Eighth Amendments–this is a really good time for people to go back and read the Fourth through the Eighth Amendments; because, that’s what they were designed to do is prevent the very stuff that’s happening right now with a Kavanaugh case. And the difference with Bill Cosby again, is he went through all of that due process. He had all the opportunity to use every one of those constitutional clauses and the preponderance of evidence and the corroboration and all the eyewitness testimony. Everything else came out showing he was wrong; but, he was presumed innocent until he was proven guilty. And that’s the huge difference between Kavanaugh and Cosby; because, both of them did appear to be very good guys. But we are talking apples and oranges here. And so, the Fourth through the Eighth Amendments are worth reviewing over this case.

Rick:

All right. Quick break, guys. We’ll be back with another question here on WallBuilders Live! Foundations of Freedom Thursday.

Outro:

President Thomas Jefferson said, “I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves. And if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”

David:

This is David Barton. I want to let about a brand new book we have called This Precarious Moment, Six Urgent Steps That Will Save You, Your family, and Our Country. Jim Garlow and I have co-authored this book and we take six issues that are hot in the culture right now.

Issues that we’re dealing with, issues such as immigration, race relations, our relationship with Israel, the rising generation Millennials, and the absence of the church in the culture wars, and where American heritage is, our godly heritage. We look at all six of those issues right now that are under attack and we give you both Biblical and historical perspective on those issues that provide solutions on what each of us can do right now to make a difference.

These are all problems that are solvable if we’ll get involved. So you can grab the book This Precarious Moment and find out what you can do to make a difference. This Precarious Moment is available at WallBuilders.com.

Intro:

Abraham Lincoln said, “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts. Not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”

Guys are you ready to get into some other questions?

Actually before we get to the other questions I’ve got to you. Can I just read a quick e-mail here that we got? It’s a person that just really enjoyed listening to some of the things that they’ve heard on the radio program. And then, they got some books after hearing you guys speak. They said, “I had to tell you how much I love the books we got at the conference. As you know, we purchased them for next year, since we had already finished our book reports. I decided read them this year to my class during free time. They love them. I love them. We’re almost through the second one and are on the edge of our seats. I cried as I read the last chapter of the first book. Thank God for these wonderful books to instill American values.” Carla, thank you for that e-mail. And thank you, WallBuilders, for putting out those good materials.

Y’all ready for a question?

Tim:

Let’s do it.

Every Candidate is the Lesser of Two Evils

Rick:

All right then. The next question says, “Should I as a Christian vote in an election that all the candidates are against Biblical principles? The candidate’s bio shows they will vote God out of everything in my city and county.”

Well, first of all, a lot of our listeners feel your pain, whoever sent this this question in. There’s a lot of pockets around the country where you will often feel like there’s no good candidates, and you feel like everybody on the ballot is going to be bad for the future of your community or your county or or your particular state. So, David and Tim how do you address that as a Christian, and what your duty whenever you feel like all the options are not good?

Tim:

Well, let me jump in on this one first. And then, Dad, you can definitely speak to this as well. This is always an interesting question; because, we hear so often the idea of I don’t want to vote for just the lesser of two evils. Right? They’re both bad candidates. There’s not a good candidate on there. And I would love to ask the question: How do you define a good candidate? Because, I would argue every single candidate is the lesser of two evils, right? Unless Jesus Christ has come back to Earth and is on the ballot, everybody else is the lesser of two evils. And I totally, I — not to minimize. Right? I get the point that they’re both really bad; or, maybe there’s four or five, and they’re all really bad. I definitely get the idea. But, it certainly does not negate the responsibility that we have to be stewards while we are here. So, the question is: If all the candidates are anti-God — right? What would you rather vote for: a Ahab or Jezebel, right? Like, they’re both bad. I don’t want either one.

Choose Ahab over Jezebel

David:

But, you know, I would take Ahab in a heartbeat over Jezebel.

Tim:

And that’s where I was going.

Rick:

Right.

Tim:

It wasn’t Ahab who said, “Hey, let’s get the people of God together and kill them all.” It was Jezebel. And so, even though–right? And I can go back when President Trump was the option on one side, I’d take it if Hillary was the option on the other side. I looked and went, “Wow. Both of these are terrible options.” And certainly, President Trump has proved me wrong in a lot of areas. There are certainly some areas where I still don’t like a lot of what he does and certainly, some of what he tweets. And and I’m sure we still have a difference of moral opinion of certain things. There’s no doubt. However, it became a lot easier looking at the fact that Hillary said, “Hey I think right partial-birth abortion or abortion in third trimester, I think that’s all fine.” And Trump said, “No, we’re not going to do that.” There were a couple of issues where it was easy for me to go, “Okay, you know what? I can support this person because of that.”

And I had a lot of friends, and their conviction was Well I can’t vote for either one. And so I’m going to write in a candidate. If your conviction is that I cannot do this; because, I could not stand before God and feel confident giving an answer for voting for this person. You have to vote according your conscience, and there’s no doubt about it, right? Where the Bible talks about that you are accountable to God, and that’s why you work out your own faith with fear and trembling. I don’t work out your faith. You don’t work out my faith; we’re responsible for ourselves. But with that being said–

Don’t Misunderstand Our Process

Rick:

But doesn’t that misunderstand? When people say that, doesn’t that misunderstand our process though? Because — and forgive me for the sports analogy; but, look. If you’re the manager of the Texas Rangers, and none of the pitchers are doing any good–oh wait. That describes

David:

Wait a minute. You’re talking about this year’s season?

Rick:

This is a real scenario. OK. But, you can’t say “Well, I’m not the manager anymore, and I’m not going to do my duty and send out someone to pitch. Right? I mean, even if you don’t have any good choices, if nobody’s pitching well, you still have to put somebody on the mound. We are citizens who live in a nation where we the people are in charge of our government, and our number one duty is is putting people in office: voting and choosing our leaders in this representative form of government. To say that none of them none of them are pitching very well–in other words, none of them are going to give us good legislation–is to say, “I’m not going to do my job and put somebody on the mound;” instead of saying, “Okay, I’ll do the best I can with what I got where I am.” And it might be literally, and always will be the lesser of two evils. I’m going to do the one that’s least bad and be strategic in thinking about the fact that at least I could have–so out of those five candidates–the least bad. Or, as you describe that presidential race where there’s really only two candidates, the least bad of the two. And I think. You know, Lord knows. I mean, He’s proved it to us. I mean, that paid off in this situation on the presidential race; because, we chose the lesser of two evils, and he turned out to be a whole lot better than we thought we were going to get.

So, I’m sorry for interrupting you, Tim. But, I feel like people shouldn’t be able to say, “I don’t want to have to stand before God and say that I voted for that person.” I think that they’ve misunderstood how our system works. You’re not putting that person in office. You’re choosing the least bad if they’re all bad options. So, you’re helping your community by it not being the worse one.

Maybe You Need to Write in a Candidate.

Tim:

And let me help out. So, maybe the position of the listener, right? So, what if have you had to choose between Hitler or Stalin. Right? Like what if it is that evil and you’re like, “I can’t vote for either one; because, they’re both in favor of murdering people they don’t like.” I really do understand that there could be a scenario where it just feels I cannot support that evil. Now, that doesn’t mean you maybe shouldn’t write in a candidat. Right? It doesn’t mean that you don’t need to vote for all the down ballot. It doesn’t excuse or remove the responsibility you have to help select those leaders. But, I really do understand there could be a potential–maybe in California. These people are both like in favor of third trimester, partial-birth, dismemberment, abortion, selling baby parts. Maybe they’re both incredibly–or, multiple, three or four–they’re all evil people. So, what do you do? I get that that’s a very difficult scenario.

Rick:

Yes.

Tim:

Now it might be a little far fetched to say, “Hitler and Stalin;” nonetheless, maybe there are evil people that you’re having to choose between. There are still probably some issues you can look and say, “Well, maybe better on this issue than that issue.” Or, maybe you need to write in a candidate. But certainly, we still have a responsibility to vote and be a part of the process.

David:

And using the analogies you used–Rick, you used baseball with the Rangers, and Tim made the point between Stalin and Hitler, a really clear point. The one I would use is: I’ve got two cars sitting on a line a thousand feet from a cliff. And I’ve got two drivers; I’m going to have to get in the car with one; because, one of them is going to be my driver. I don’t have a choice; even if I don’t vote, one of them is going to be my driver. One of them is going to go over the cliff at 100 miles an hour. The other is going over the cliff at 50 miles an hour. I will take the 50 miles an hour in a heartbeat and work my tail to get somebody different driving before he goes over the cliff. So, I’m going to take the lesser of two evils, if you will.

More Time to Find a New Driver

Rick:

Not over the cliff, but between where you are and the cliff. The one you get in the car with is going to go 50; the other is going to go 100.

David:

Right.

Rick:

So, you’ve got more time to right the ship. You’ve got more time to fix the scenario.

David:

As soon as I get in the car with the 50-mile-an-hour going over the cliff, I’m starting to recruit candidates for a new driver. I’m going to go out, and I’ve got two years, and I’ve got to come back and do this again. I’m going to have somebody different running at that point in time. So, I’m going to take a slower car to give me more time to be able to go out and recruit someone. I’ll find someone somewhere to run it. Period. That’s going to happen. That’s my commitment; that’s what I’m going to do. So, I have that option to do.

And by the way, the other thing is, generally when we get fixated on two bad candidates on the ballot, don’t forget that on nearly every ballot when you vote in November–if you vote early in October–you’re going to have that person on the ballot. You look at it and say, “It’s a choice of two evils, the lesser of two evils.” Yeah, but you’re also going to have probably 15, 18, or 20 other people on the ballot, and not every one of those is going to be the lesser of two evils. There will be some good ones somewhere along the way. And it could be you look at it and say, “Man, this guy wants to tax 99 cents out of every dollar I’ve got, and this guy wants to tax 98.” Okay, I’ll take the 98. If I get one more penny out of it, I’ll do that. Even if it’s a bad choice between the two, that gives me time to be able to do something to get a better candidate next time. And that’s where I think you have to go when you look at something like this.

Rick:

Yeah, and David if we can, we get to a quick break. When we come back, let’s stay on this topic, and let’s address the issue of party as well. Because, you’re not just choosing that person, you’re choosing how they’re going to choose for party leaders and who would have the majority. Whether it’s your state legislature, or even in some places their local government, but certainly state and federal level. And just like with Hillary and Trump, we had to decide which team we were voting for. It was the 4000 appointments that we were really voting for, not just that one person. So, let’s dive a little further into that before we leave this topic.

Stay with us, folks. You’re listening to WallBuilders Live! Its Foundations of Freedom Thursday.

Outro

Thomas Jefferson said, “The Constitution of most of our states and of the United States asserts that all power is inherent in the people that they may exercise it by themselves.

Is there a right and duty to be at all times armed. That they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of press.”

 

Israel Trip: The Bible Comes to Life

Hey guys, what are you doing January 28 through February 7th? If you said you don’t know, let me give you an idea. We are going to Israel. Rick Green, my dad David Barton, Tim Barton, our families are going; and, we would love for you to go with us. We are going to the Holy Land. If you’ve never been to Israel, this is something, as a Christian, that will make you forever read your Bible differently. To see where Jesus walked, where He lived, where He did miracles, where so much of the Bible took place. If you’ve ever read the Bible and you’ve given it a mental picture, the mental picture will not do justice of what happens when you’re actually on the ground. If you’ve ever thought about the story of David and Goliath and you’ve envisioned what it looks like, we’re going to go to the actual field where it took place. There are so many things that you will see that literally makes the Bible come to life. In fact, that’s the name of the tour group we’re going with is: The Bible Comes to Life. Go to CMJacksboro.com. You can click on the link. It has an Israel itinerary and all kinds of details. Hope to see you on this trip this coming year.

 

Intro:

President Calvin Coolidge said, “The more I studied the Constitution, the more I realize no other document devised by the hand of man has brought so much progress and happiness to humanity. To live under the American Constitution is the greatest political privilege there was ever according to the human race.”

 

The Party Issue

Rick:

Welcome back. It’s Foundations of Freedom Thursday here on WallBuilders Live! We were talking about a question we had about What do you do when there’s no good candidates and you feel like every candidate is a bad choice? And guys, when we were going to the break, I was talking about the party issue. Because I’m sure that even good candidates right now, but virtually every congressional candidate and Senate candidate is being pummeled by radio and television ads and mail pieces and being made out to be the worst thing ever in the history of the nation. It’s on both sides. And so, people very much may be feeling like neither candidate is good. How does party play into that? Because in Washington D.C.–I mean, you your local guy may seem like a bad guy, but the party you elect with that guy or gal is going to be very important in Washington D.C. to determine who the majority is and whether the Democrats take over and try to impeach Trump or if the Republicans stay control and all of those things. So, how does that how do people factor that in?

You Are Choosing a Team

David:

Let’s take the U.S. Senate for a moment. We actually have some pro-life Democrats, or at least purported pro-life Democrats, in the U.S. Senate. Robert Casey out of Pennsylvania, Joe Manchin out of West Virginia, they’re pro-life Democrats. Except their party never lets a pro-life vote come up because of Rule 22 in the Senate. You have to have–you have to be able to pick up nine Democrats, and just having a couple of Democrats that are pro-life doesn’t give you nine. And so, it doesn’t matter that they’re pro-life. Their position is pro-abortion; because, their party will not let Planned Parenthood be defined or prosecutions go forward for selling baby parts or anything else. They may personally be pro-life, but they’re part of a party that blocks every pro-life measure from coming forward. So, even though you can say, “Well, you know, I’m going to reelect him because he’s pro-life.” Well, good, but you’re not going to get any pro-life policies through him. And that’s the difference. And, Rick, you said it right; you are choosing a team.

Rick:

Oh wait, wait. I know how this fits with the analogy. They might be a really good pitcher; but, they play for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and therefore we wouldn’t want to pull for him.

David:

Oh man. We’re going deep on this one. We might get in trouble.

Tim:

I’m not sure what this analogy is. What are these Dodgers of which you speak?

David:

Yes. [laughter]

Rick:

All right. I need a basketball analogy. I can’t think of one. No. Okay, David, I’m with you. I follow what you’re saying. So, you could have you have a pro-life U.S. Senator or Senate candidate, but if they’re a Democrat, they’re part of a party that’s not even going to allow you to ever get a vote on a pro-life bill. And they’re going to be forced to vote party. I mean, that’s just how Washington works. And so, you should consider voting for the Republican in that case to make sure that if the Republicans are in charge, you can at least get a vote on the life issue. And same thing for judges, right?

Getting Good Judges Confirmed

David:

Same thing for judges. I mean, to this point the Democrats have done a great job of trying to block every justice that’s come through, even if they’re good and competent qualified, even if they voted for them before. By the way, the Democrats voted for Kavanaugh on the previous appointments. So why are they suddenly against him now? Because, they voted for him for the court of appeals; they voted for a district court. See, it’s politics. And with the Democrats, you’re not going to get good judges on the court, at least “good” under a constitutional standard that we’d look at.

Tim:

And let me also clarify, all right? So, we’re saying the Democrats don’t do that. Well, that’s where the position stands now. Right? We’re not Republican backers.

David:

That’s right.

Stand for the Principles

Tim:

We are principle supporters. And so, right now it just so happens Republicans are the ones supporting those principles better than the Democrats. But, I have no problem voting Democrat if they change their positions to become constitutional.

Rick:

That’s right.

Tim:

This is not about a party I like. This is about the principles that I uphold and support.

And so, we look for the team that is doing the best of upholding and supporting those principles. And we get behind and support that team, not because of the team name on the jersey, but because of the principles they are promoting.

David:

Yeah,  I’ll go on record again and say–because I say this often–is, I look for the day when Republicans and Democrats can have a battle over my candidate is more constitutional than yours. My candidate wants religious expression more than yours. When we get to that point, man, I’m going to love it when some day both parties start standing for the same kind of principles and the only differences is in smaller things, whatever that is. So, you’re right, Tim. We don’t stand for a party; we stand for the principles.

But right now, those principles are written down in their platforms that each side created. That’s what they as a collective group believe. And so, when you vote for an individual candidate, you are voting for the team with which they are affiliated, which will make a difference in policy.

Vote! But First, Be Informed.

Rick:

Well, then the short answer to the question that we got from the from the listener is: you absolutely should do your duty; you absolutely should show up and vote. Study those candidates. Go to iVoterGuide.com to learn more about those candidates and make wise decisions. Print out those voter guides; take them out of the booth with you. Print them out for your church; hand them out at church. Talk your pastor; make sure you know. But, it’s definitely legal and should be done at churches across the country. So, get involved and help make a difference. These elections are vitall, vitally important. Get informed. Make sure you go in and you know who to vote for. You can do that by going to ChristianVoterGuide.com. It will give you the information on all the candidates, and you can just look at where they stand on the issues.
