Geauga County’s Tom Niewulis shares his and patriot Sam Adams’ thoughts, believes and opinions on a variety of timely topics.

We highly suggest that you follow the link below to read all of Sam Adams’ commentary on what is happening in today’s world.

1. Muslim Community Revolts Against ‘Sexually Explicit’ Books In Schools, Shuts Down Board Meeting

Commentary: Are we going to see these parents hunted by the FBI as domestic terrorists? If you are a Patriot parent or a Christian Parent, would they be prosecuting and or persecuting you? Here in Ohio that is an effort going on by a group that will present all the ‘explicit’ books in various school districts to the State Legislature. Will that have the moral courage to act.

Sam Adams on how and what to teach children:

“Let Divines, and Philosophers, Statesmen and Patriots unite their endeavours to renovate the Age, by impressing the Minds of Men with the importance of educating their little boys, and girls – of inculcating in the Minds of youth the fear, and Love of the Deity, and universal Phylanthropy; and in subordination to these great principles, the Love of their Country – of instructing them in the Art of self government, without which they never can act a wise part in the Government of Societys great, or small – in short of leading them in the Study, and Practice of the exalted Virtues of the Christian system, which will happily tend to subdue the turbulent passions of Men, and introduce that Golden Age beautifully described in figurative language; when the Wolf shall dwell with the Lamb, and the Leopard lie down with the Kid – the Cow, and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together, and the Lyon shall eat straw like the Ox – none shall then hurt, or destroy; for the Earth shall be full of the Knowledge of the Lord.” – Letter to John Adams, October 4, 1790

2. Biden to ax Trump investigations of secret foreign money in higher ed, college groups say

Commentary: It is always about ‘follow the money’ and in this case, foreign influence has been the bane of maintaining our nationalism.

Samuel Adams commentary:

“It has been observed, that “education has a greater influence on manners, than human laws can have.” Human laws excite fears and apprehensions, least crimes committed may be detected and punished: But a virtuous education is calculated to reach and influence the heart, and to prevent crimes. A very judicious writer, has quoted Plato, who in shewing what care for the security of States ought to be taken of the education of youth, speaks of it as almost sufficient to supply the place both of Legislation and Administration. Such an education, which leads the youth beyond mere outside shew, will impress their minds with a profound reverence of the Deity, universal benevolence, and a warm attachment and affection towards their country. It will excite in them a just regard to Divine Revelation, which informs them of the original character and dignity of Man; and it will inspire them with a sense of true honor, which consists in conforming as much as possible, their principles, habits, and manners to that original character. It will enlarge their powers of mind, and prompt them impartially to search for truth in the consideration of every subject that may employ their thoughts; and among other branches of knowledge, it will instruct them in the skill of political architecture and jurisprudence; and qualify them to discover any error, if there should be such, in the forms and administration of Governments, and point out the method of correcting them.” – Address to Massachusetts Legislature as Governor, January 17, 1794
