Words are our Best Weapon Against the Lies of History (Truth in the Root of the Word).
From the Library of Congress Collection of Historical Broadsides: A broadside is a large sheet of paper printed on one side only. Historically, broadsides were posters, announcing events or proclamations, or simply advertisements. The historical type of broadsides were ephemera, i.e. temporary documents created for a specific purpose and intended to be thrown away. They were one of the most common forms of printed material between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, particularly in Britain, Ireland and North America. They were often advertisements, but could also be used for news information or proclamations. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadside_(printing)
Collection Summary: (The below summary is written by a present-day commentator, therefore, I need my master decoders to examine and take note of the particulars within this tear-sheet. Bonne Chance!)
Summary: A patriotic broadside illustrated with emblems of the United States composed chiefly of typographic elements. A large central framework incorporates a small “Temple of Freedom” surmounted by a small Liberty figure, and containing the words “The Federal Constitution.” On each side are oval bust portraits of Presidents (left to right) Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison. Above them are small vignettes representing (on the left) Agriculture and Domestic Manufactures, the “immoveable pillars of the Independence of our country,” and (on the right) Commerce, “a strong support to our national edifice.” In the upper section of the framework are the seal of the United States and a listing of the names of the seventeen states with their 1810 census figures. Various quotations and brief texts are included, the longest of which are an account of George Washington’s resignation of his commission, a description of the geography, government, and people of the United States, and the song “Columbia” written by “Dr. Dwight, President of Yale College.”

Allow me to indulge my senses. I know a “Black” (melanin-rich) man when I see one. It does not matter how light or bleached out the representation is, I know. That being said. What does the REAL John Adams look like? Since those images depicted in history books, et al, does not (in the least) look like the image above. And remember, this was a paper bulletin /announcement, which was displayed on public billboards, local shops, taverns and the like. I would say, if John Adams did not look like the above image, someone would have objected.
Is THIS the True John Adams? First Vice President, and Second President of the United States? John Adams (October 30 [O.S. October 19] 1735 – July 4, 1826) was the second president of the United States (1797–1801), having earlier served as the first vice president of the United States. An American Founding Father, Adams was a statesman, diplomat, and a leading advocate of American independence from Great Britain. Well educated, he was an Enlightenment political theorist who promoted republicanism, as well as a strong central government, and wrote prolifically about his often seminal ideas, both in published works and in letters to his wife and key adviser Abigail Adams, as well as to other Founding Fathers.
Abigail Adams (née Smith; November 22 [O.S. November 11] 1744 – October 28, 1818)was the wife of John Adams, the first Vice President, and second President, of the United States, and the mother of John Quincy Adams, the sixth President of the United States. She was the first Second Lady of the United States and second First Lady of the United States. Adams’s life is one of the most documented of the first ladies: she is remembered for the many letters she wrote to her husband while he stayed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during the Continental Congresses. John frequently sought the advice of Abigail on many matters, and their letters are filled with intellectual discussions on government and politics.
The Sixth President of the United States, John Quincy Adams (July 11, 1767 – February 23, 1848) was the sixth President of the United States (1825–1829). He served as American diplomat, Senator, and Congressional representative. He was a member of the Federalist, Democratic-Republican, National Republican, and later Anti-Masonic and Whig parties. Adams was the son of former President John Adams and Abigail Adams. As a diplomat, Adams played an important role in negotiating many international treaties, most notably the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the War of 1812. As Secretary of State, he negotiated with the United Kingdom over America’s northern border with Canada, negotiated with Spain the annexation of Florida, and authored the Monroe Doctrine. Historians (conformist) agree he was one of the greatest diplomats and secretaries of state in American history.
The cover page image is from the signing of the Treaty of Paris (1782) The man behind John Adams is John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the United States. (John Jay images from Wikipedia looks very different from this original portrait.)
The above painting by Benjamin West commemorates the signing of The Treaty of Paris, 1783. It includes, from left to right, John Jay, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Henry Laurens, and Franklin’s grandson, William Temple Franklin, secretary to the American delegation. West intended for his painting to include the other delegates, but they refused to sit for it. John Jay, not very popular during his day, many “a common-folk” thought John Jay was favoring the British in his negotiations. A famed exclamation, “Damn John Jay! Damn everyone who won’t damn John Jay!!

Transcript of Treaty of Paris (1783): An Excerpt
His Britannic Majesty acknowledges the said United States, viz., New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, to be free sovereign and Independent States.
And that all Disputes which might arise in future on the subject of the Boundaries of the said United States may be prevented.
It is agreed that Congress shall earnestly recommend it to the Legislatures of the respective States to provide for the Restitution of all Estates, Rights, and Properties, which have been confiscated belonging to real British Subjects (servitude); and also of the Estates, Rights, and Properties of Persons resident in Districts in the Possession on his Majesty’s Arms and who have not borne Arms against the said United States. And that Persons of any other Description shall have free Liberty to go to any Part or Parts of any of the thirteen United States and therein to remain twelve Months unmolested in their Endeavors to obtain the Restitution of such of their Estates – Rights & Properties as may have been confiscated. And that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several States a Reconsideration and Revision of all Acts or Laws regarding the Premises, so as to render the said Laws or Acts perfectly consistent not only with Justice and Equity but with that Spirit of Conciliation which on the Return of the Blessings of Peace should universally prevail. And that Congress shall also earnestly recommend to the several States that the Estates, Rights, and Properties of such last mentioned Persons shall be restored to them, they refunding to any Persons who may be now in Possession the Bona fide Price (where any has been given) which such Persons may have paid on purchasing any of the said Lands, Rights, or Properties since the Confiscation. And it is agreed that all Persons who have any Interest in confiscated Lands, either by Debts, Marriage Settlements, or otherwise, shall meet with no lawful Impediment in the Prosecution of their just Rights.
Note: It is obvious they did not do this, so they devised a plan to take ALL of the land, piece by piece and name it The United States
for of America, circa 1861. (see article: All Nations Constitutions Are Trust!)
Excerpt from the video: What You Avoid Controls You (Fight the Power)
1861: the Southern states decided they were tired of being pushed around, and they left the Union. And the original constitution disappeared.
1862: the word Person, was redefined. To a legal term meaning a fictional entity.
1864: the word State, was redefined. As of 1864, state means the District of Columbia. So whenever you hear a Public Official (police, judge, etc.) say state they do not care what “state” you come from, they are actually talking about the District of Columbia. When you claim Citizenship you claim you are under the jurisdiction of the District of Columbia.
