Off-Site Post: ‘The Colonists Wanted Their King to Rule, Not Reign’


A major tenet of the American Creed is that all kings are tyrants.  This is implied from the Declaration of Independence:

The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.


But this is very much an oversimplification of the American colonists’ views of King George III and monarchy in general.

First and foremost, it must be noted that His Majesty’s subjects in the 13 colonies were very fond of their King.  Their grievances in the runup to the War for Independence were not mainly with him but with actions of Parliament.  This is plainly evident in the colonists’ ‘Petition to the King’ of 1774 (for knowledge of which we are indebted to the monarchist Charles Coulombe’s book Star-Spangled Crown).  A bit from the Petition, which indicts Parliament:

By several Acts of Parliament made in the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth years of your Majesty's Reign, Duties are imposed on us for the purpose of raising a Revenue; and the powers of Admiralty and Vice Admiralty Courts are extended beyond their ancient limits, whereby our property is taken from us without our consent; the trial by jury, in many civil cases, is abolished; enormous forfeitures are incurred for slight offences; vexatious informers are exempted from paying damages, to which they are justly liable, and oppressive security is required from owners before they are allowed to defend their right.

Both Houses of Parliament have resolved, that Colonists may be tried in England for offences alleged to have been committed in America, by virtue of a Statute passed in the thirty-fifth year of Henry the Eighth, and, in consequence thereof, attempts have been made to enforce that Statute.


What the colonists wanted was for King George III to place himself between Parliament and the colonies, to protect the latter from the former.  The words of affection from the colonists towards their King in this Petition will probably offer a strong shock to those who accept the standard textbook account of [u]nited States history, but here they are nevertheless:

To a Sovereign, who glories in the name of Briton, the bare recital of these Acts must, we presume, justify the loyal subjects, who fly to the foot of his Throne, and implore his clemency for protection against them.

From this destructive system of Colony Administration, adopted since the conclusion of the last war, have flowed those distresses, dangers, fears, and jealousies, that overwhelm your Majesty's dutiful Colonists with affliction; and we defy our most subtle and inveterate enemies to trace the unhappy differences between Great Britain and these Colonies, from an earlier period, or from other causes than we have assigned. Had they proceeded on our part from a restless levity of temper, unjust impulses of ambition, or artful suggestions of seditious persons, we should merit the opprobrious terms frequently bestowed upon us by those we revere. But so far from promoting innovations, we have only opposed them; and can be charged with no offence, unless it be one to receive injuries and be sensible of them.

 . . .

Duty to your Majesty, and regard for the preservation of ourselves and our posterity, the primary obligations of nature and of society, command us to entreat your Royal attention; and, as your Majesty enjoys the signal distinction of reigning over freemen, we apprehend the language of freemen cannot be displeasing. Your Royal indignation, we hope, will rather fall on those designing and dangerous men, who, daringly interposing themselves between your Royal person and your faithful subjects, and for several years past incessantly employed to dissolve the bonds of society, by abusing your Majesty's authority, misrepresenting your American subjects, and prosecuting the most desperate and irritating projects of oppression, have at length compelled us, by the force of accumulated injuries, too severe to be any longer tolerable, to disturb your Majesty's repose by our complaints.

These sentiments are extorted from hearts that much more willingly would bleed in your Majesty's service. Yet, so greatly have we been misrepresented, that a necessity has been alleged of taking our property from us without our consent, "to defray the charge of the administration of justice, the support of Civil Government, and the defence, protection, and security of the Colonies." But we beg leave to assure your Majesty that such provision has been and will be made for defraying the two first artiticles [sic], as has been and shall be judged by the Legislatures of the several Colonies just and suitable to their respective circumstances; and, for the defence, protection, and security of the Colonies, their Militias, if properly regulated, as they earnestly desire may immediately be done, would be fully sufficient, at least in times of peace; and, in case of war, your faithful Colonists will be ready and willing, as they ever have been, when constitutionally required, to demonstrate their loyalty to your Majesty, by exerting their most strenuous efforts in granting supplies and raising forces.[8]

Yielding to no British subjects in affectionate attachment to your Majesty's person, family, and Government, we too dearly prize the privilege of expressing that attachment by those proofs that are honourable to the Prince who receives them, and to the People who give them, ever to resign it to any body of men upon earth.

 . . .

We ask but for Peace, Liberty, and Safety. We wish not a diminution of the prerogative, nor do we solicit the grant of any new right in our favour. Your Royal authority over us, and our connection with Great Britain, we shall always carefully and zealously endeavour to support and maintain.

 . . .

Permit us then, most gracious Sovereign, in the name of all your faithful People in America, with the utmost humility, to implore you, for the honour of Almighty God, whose pure Religion our enemies are undermining; for your glory, which can be advanced only by rendering your subjects happy, and keeping them united; for the interests of your family depending on an adherence to the principles that enthroned it; for the safety and welfare of your Kingdoms and Dominions, threatened with almost unavoidable dangers and distresses, that your Majesty, as the loving Father of your whole People, connected by the same bands of Law, Loyalty, Faith, and Blood, though dwelling in various countries, will not suffer the transcendent relation formed by these ties to be farther violated, in uncertain expectation of effects, that, if attained, never can compensate for the calamities through which they must be gained.

We therefore most earnestly beseech your Majesty, that your Royal authority and interposition may be used for our relief, and that a gracious Answer may be given to this Petition.

That your Majesty may enjoy every felicity through a long and glorious Reign, over loyal and happy subjects, and that your descendants may inherit your prosperity and Dominions till time shall be no more, is, and always will be, our sincere and fervent prayer.

Unfortunately for the colonists of the Mid-Atlantic, the South, and New England, the kind of king they desired did not exist in England at that time.  Such a king had not existed since King Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries and gave their lands to various lords of the realm.  In doing so, he created a class of oligarchs more powerful than the king, though this would only become evident with the so-called Glorious Revolution of 1688:

How Do You Complete the Globalist Plan for a One World State?


Hype a threat that appears to endanger the whole planet. 

James Corbett has a good report on this:


Alexander Dugin also mentions such a scenario in his book Ethnos and Society:

This global state is thought of as minimally a state, and that only in the face of a figure that could be put outside of the limits of humanity, since the nation state has a purpose only in the face of another nation state.  For now, there are claimants to this role only in fantasy novels and films about “aliens” who play the role of the “other” for a humanity that has become global.  In some fantastic scenarios, the role of the “other” is played by an internal enemy: for instance, “robots,” “machines,” or “computers” that have escaped control and even cyborgs and mutants.  Functionally, they replace the protesting classes of industrial political systems (London, Arktos, 2018, p. 221).

The conditioning of the public for an alien invasion/threat has ramped up recently.  NASA, for instance, made a very open announcement that it wanted to hire a ‘planetary protection officer’:

But the concerns at NASA's headquarters are, quite literally, extraterrestrial — which is why the space agency now has a job opening for "planetary protection officer."

The gig? Help defend Earth from alien contamination, and help Earth avoid contaminating alien worlds it's trying to explore.

 . . .

The position was created after the US ratified the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, specifically to support Article IX of the document:

"States Parties to the Treaty shall pursue studies of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, and conduct exploration of them so as to avoid their harmful contamination and also adverse changes in the environment of the Earth resulting from the introduction of extraterrestrial matter and, where necessary, shall adopt appropriate measures for this purpose."


Russian scientists are making similar claims of the need for protection against ‘space bacteria’:


As always, Hollywood, with its close connections to the military-industrial complex/Deep State (https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-08-04/heres-410-movies-made-under-direct-influence-and-supervision-department-defense), has been doing the most to imprint the alien invasion meme in everyone’s mind.  An episode from the original MacGyver series (‘Kill Zone’) is eerily similar to the two previous stories:

When a satellite carrying a genetic experiment crashes to earth MacGyver is sent in to recover it. When he arrives he discovers that the experiment mutated in space and now ages animals at a vast rate. It is taken back to the lab but the scientist in charge doesn't want to destroy it.



Another TV ensample involving Richard Dean Anderson was the creation of Homeworld Security in the Stargate series:


The most well-known movie in this regard of late is probably Will Smith’s Independence Day, in which July 4th takes on a global significance as the day on which Earth wins her independence from the invading aliens:


The list of all the Hollywood alien invasion movies would go on for quite a while; there’s more to that than just a desire to ‘meet consumer demand’.

We may indeed see some strange things in the years to come, but it is only to advance the cause of the devil and his Antichrist, to lead people further away from the Truth found in the Orthodox Church.  Father Seraphim Rose writes at the end of the chapter on UFOs in Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future,

In a different place Bishop Ignatius Brianchaninov recorded with awe and foreboding the vision of a simple Russian blacksmith in a village near Petersburg at the dawn of our present age of unbelief and revolution (1817).  In the middle of the day he suddenly saw a multitude of demons in human form, sitting in the branches of the forest trees, in strange garments and pointed caps, and singing, to the accompaniment of unbelievably weird musical instruments, an eerie and frightful song:  “Our years have come, our will be done!”  (5th ed., Platina, Cal., Saint Herman of Alaska Brotherhood, 2013, p. 113)

These are the years we live in (or very close to them, at any rate).  Demonic power is strong.  Do not trust much of what you see and hear from the news media.  There is a story from the Life of St Martin of Tours (+397) by Sulpitius Severus (Chapter XVIII) that warns against it:

IN the meanwhile, as a sudden report had troubled the city as to the movement and inroad of the barbarians, Martin orders a possessed person to be set before him, and commanded him to declare whether this message was true or not. Then he confessed that there were sixteen demons who had spread this report among the people, in order that by the fear thus excited, Martin might have to flee from the city, but that, in fact, nothing was less in the minds of the barbarians than to make any inroad. When the unclean spirit thus acknowledged these things in the midst of the church, the city was set free from the fear and tumult which had at the time been felt.


Beware the news.  Beware the TV.  Beware your eyes and other senses.
