US President George Washington on the DANGERS of foreign influence and alliances taken from Washington’s Farewell Address (1796)

“No Senate tradition has been more steadfastly maintained than the annual reading of President George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address. In this letter to “Friends and Citizens,” Washington warned that the forces of geographical sectionalism, political factionalism, and interference by foreign powers in the nation’s domestic affairs threatened the stability of the Republic. He urged Americans to subordinate sectional jealousies to common national interests.

The Senate tradition began on February 22, 1862, as a morale-boosting gesture during the darkest days of the Civil War. Citizens of Philadelphia had petitioned Congress to commemorate the forthcoming 130th anniversary of Washington’s birth by reading the Address at a joint meeting of both houses.” (See: here)

“It serves always to distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.”

Selected quotes taken from Washington’s Farewell Address:

“[A]postate and unnatural connection[s] with any foreign power, must be intrinsically precarious.” ~ US President George Washington

“As avenues to foreign influence in innumerable ways, such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils. Such an attachment of a small or weak towards a great and powerful nation dooms the former to be the satellite of the latter.”

“Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it.”

“Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.”

“The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith.”

“Here let us stop. Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have none; or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of her friendships or enmities.”

“Our detached and distant situation invites and enables us to pursue a different course. If we remain one people under an efficient government. the period is not far off when we may defy material injury from external annoyance; when we may take such an attitude as will cause the neutrality we may at any time resolve upon to be scrupulously respected; when belligerent nations, under the impossibility of making acquisitions upon us, will not lightly hazard the giving us provocation; when we may choose peace or war, as our interest, guided by justice, shall counsel.”

“In offering to you, my countrymen, these counsels of an old and affectionate friend, I dare not hope they will make the strong and lasting impression I could wish; that they will control the usual current of the passions, or prevent our nation from running the course which has hitherto marked the destiny of nations. But, if I may even flatter myself that they may be productive of some partial benefit, some occasional good; that they may now and then recur to moderate the fury of party spirit, to warn against the mischiefs of foreign intrigue, to guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism; this hope will be a full recompense for the solicitude for your welfare, by which they have been dictated.”

“While, then, every part of our country thus feels an immediate and particular interest in union, all the parts combined cannot fail to find in the united mass of means and efforts greater strength, greater resource, proportionably greater security from external danger, a less frequent interruption of their peace by foreign nations; and, what is of inestimable value, they must derive from union an exemption from those broils and wars between themselves, which so frequently afflict neighboring countries not tied together by the same governments, which their own rival ships alone would be sufficient to produce, but which opposite foreign alliances, attachments, and intrigues would stimulate and embitter. Hence, likewise, they will avoid the necessity of those overgrown military establishments which, under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are to be regarded as particularly hostile to republican liberty. In this sense it is that your union ought to be considered as a main prop of your liberty, and that the love of the one ought to endear to you the preservation of the other.”

“Those who threaten Israel threaten us. Israel has always faced these threats on the frontlines, and I will bring to the White House an unshakable commitment to Israel’s security.” ~ US President Barack Obama (see: here)

“It is my firm conviction that the security of Israel is in the vital national security interest of the United States. And ours is an alliance based not only on shared interests but also on enduring shared values.” US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney (see here)

“And I have a final message here for those sworn elected and appointed officials of the US Government who have betrayed their oaths in order to serve Israel, for those around the government who have facilitated this effort, and for Israel itself. You all have been discovered. Your treason, treachery and crimes are known. You may not believe it yet, but your political and strategic Judgment Day is finally appearing on the horizon, as surely as it came for Nineveh and Tyre in ancient times, for the infamous Third Reich in 1945, and for the Soviet Union two decades ago. Beware. We are coming for you.” ~ Col. Alan Sabrosky PhD USMC (Ret.)

One Response to US President George Washington on the DANGERS of foreign influence and alliances taken from Washington’s Farewell Address (1796)

  1. IF I COULD – AND I MAY JUST GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO, SOON – I WOULD CAST EVERY ISRAEL-LOVING TRAITOR TO AMERICA INTO FEDERAL PRISON FOR A MINIMUM OF 5 YEARS… AND SO WOULD US PRESIDENT GEORGE WASHINGTON… AND YOU ISRAEL-LOVERS NEED TO THINK ABOUT THAT. HOW ARE YOU PATRIOTIC BY PERMANENTLY ALLYING AMERICA TO ANY FOREIGN POWER – LET ALONE THE ONE FOREIGN POWER ON EARTH CURSED BY JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF WHEN HE WALKED THE EARTH? YOU PEOPLE ARE TO BLAME FOR THE ON-GOING WARS AND THE RUN UP TO WAR WITH IRAN WHO, LIKE IRAQ, HAS NEVER THREATENED AMERICA. BUT SINCE YOUR BELOVED ANTI-CHRIST ISRAEL FEELS THREATENED WE MUST ENGAGE IN A PERMANENT, NEVER-ENDING QUEST TO PROTECT THE JEWISH STATE? I THINK NOT! YOU ARE TRAITORS TO YOUR GOD, TO YOUR CHURCH, AND TO YOUR COUNTRY AND I AM ASHAMED OF YOU, ANGRY WITH YOU, AND DISGUSTED BY YOU. I HOPE AND PRAY WE WILL CAST YOU INTO FEDERAL PRISON, WHERE YOU WILL BE ALLOWED THREE BOOKS, ONE OF WHICH MUST BE THE HOLY BIBLE. MAYBE THEN YOU WILL READ YOUR BIBLES AND SEE IN MATTHEW 23 WHERE JESUS CURSED ISRAEL SEVEN TIMES BEFORE HE FINALLY, COVENANTALLY REJECTED CHRIST-HATING ISRAEL IN VERSE 38 AS THE WHORISH SPOUSE SHE WAS AND EVER WILL BE. REPENT AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL ISRAEL-LOVERS, BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT IN THE CHRISTIAN FAITH: YOU ARE IN A JUDAISTIC NON-CHRISTIAN CULT. FEAR IS NOT OF GOD, FEAR IS OF SATAN, YET ALL OF YOU ISRAEL-LOVERS ARE AFRAID OF MUSLIMS. GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR BUT OF LOVE, STRENGTH, AND A SOUND MIND. REPENT! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGSbi_UssAg
