Back to "A Page of History"

Historical Fact #1:
THE FIRST TEXIAN CASUALTY "At eleven o'clock that night they reached the presidio, forced open the doors of the chapel where the Mexican soldiers were quartered, and after a brief skirmish, accepted the surrender of the defenders. In the melee, three Mexican soldiers were wounded and one was killed. The Texians had one man wounded, the first of the Texas Revolution, a free Negro named Samuel McCullogh."

Historical Fact # 2:
"Before the [Mexican] Federales (constitutionalists) had time to regroup, decree after decree undermined the federal structure and devastated the rights of individuals under the Constitution (of Mexico - 1824 - , which Stephen F. Austin was instrumental in helping draft) ... Finally, in October 1835, the constitution itself was abrogated and replaced by a new document known as the "Siete Leyes" [Seven Laws], which provided for a completely centralized government and converted the states of the erstwhile republic into "departments" (political subdivisions) ruled by governors..."

Historical Fact # 3:
The Texian movement started with the goal of getting General Antonio López de Santa Anna to return to the Mexican Constitution which Stephen F. Austin had been employed by the Mexican government to help in its drafting. The Mexican Constitution (1824) was formed long after the Constitution of the several states of America. Austin traveled to Mexico City in hopes of getting the General to come to terms with the constitutional question and stop the growing resentment towards Mexico in Texas. The peace-loving, ever-patient Stephen F. Austin was thrown into prison for 18 months and held without charge. Upon his release, he proclaimed "They have declared war!"

Historical Fact #4
The status of the nation of the Republic of Texas was sent into oblivion 130 years ago by referring it to committee by the congress of the United States. That petition has never left the instant death status of the House Judiciary Committee. April 30, 1996 - Congressional Record - House Petitions, Etc. Under Clause I of Rule XXII 71. The SPEAKER presented a petition of Chief Ambassador and Consul General, Republic of Texas, relative to a copy of "Diplomatic Notice of Perfection of International Relations Between the United States of America and The Republic of Texas", which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.

Historical Fact #5
The United States began annexation overtures towards Texas early in the young republic's existence. However, many of the American leaders of that day [including President John Quincy Adams] recognized the lack of constitutional provisions to lawfully annex Texas.
Eventually, an agreement was reached to annex Texas by compact. Through a joint resolution of the U.S. Congress, Texas was supposedly annexed to the United States. Other states are admitted to the union, not annexed!
In the records of congress, however, the annexation of the Republic of Texas is referred to as the "re-annexation" of Texas and also referred to as part of the Louisiana Purchase. How could this be? Was the U.S. already attempting to cover up the fraud of the "annexation?"
Ratification by a 2/3 majority vote is required to admit a state to the union. In the case of Texas this did not happen, but by a simple majority and a joint resolution of Congress.
Spain and France confirmed the boundaries of Texas. Further, the United States did not "purchase" the lands in the Louisiana Purchase, but only purchased the forts, arsenals and streets of New Orleans. The lands of the Louisiana Purchase were ceded back to the ancient ones (Washita Indians) by Napoleon himself, in the Louisiana Purchase documents!
Why was this fraud perpetrated? 

Historical Fact #6
"At the opening session on January 28, (1861) Judge Oran M. Roberts of the Supreme Court was elected president by acclamation. The following day a vote of 152 to 6 passed a resolution (by Texas Congress) that Texas should separately (not with the other Southern States) secede from the union. The ordinance of annexation was repealed, a declaration of causes for secession adopted, a secession ordinance drafted, an interim Committee of Public Safety appointed and the date set for February 23 (1861). When the convention (delegates from the counties) passed the secession ordinance, by a vote of 166 to 8. Secession was approved (by popular vote of the people) by 46,129 to 14,697, an overwhelming sixty-six per cent."
Voted out of the United States by the Texas Congress
Voted out of the United States by the convention of county delegates
Voted out of the United States by the People (Texians)
None of the above votes were ever repealed!
Three Strikes - Your Out!

Historical Fact #7
"Article IV Section 3 : New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other State, nor any State formed by the Junction of two or more States...."
We have seen no reference to Texas ever being admitted as a State of the Union.  It is always referred to as an annexation or re-annexation, as part of the Louisiana Purchase.
The argument of Texas being able to split into five states would be null and void lawfully, since the Constitution of the United States would have greater authority than the compact/contract between the U.S. and the Republic of Texas, unless it was a treaty between two powers.  However, upon instituting the presumed statehood, would the treaty become null and void, since the state of Texas would be bound by the U.S. Constitution?
The United States violated their own Constitution when it militarily took lands from Texas and made those lands parts of other States. The Compromise of 1850 between Texas and the United States breached the compact between the Republic of Texas and the U.S. and removed lands from Texas.

Historical Fact #8
"Article IV Section 3 : New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the jurisdiction of any other State, nor any State formed by the Junction of two or more States.... The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States...."
Texas was not admitted as one of the several States of the Union and the records prove that the attitude of the U.S. Congress towards Texas was re-annexation.   Did the United States consider Texas as its Territory or Property which it presumed to take authority over, and dispose of lands belonging to Texas?   How could the United States re-annex another nation, with which it had treaties as a foreign power?
Who perpetrated this fraud upon the Texian nationals, and why?

Historical Fact #9
FREEMEN or FREEDMEN?  The Civil War and the emancipation of the slaves is marked with fraud and deceit.
  1. In Texas historical documentation, the emancipated slaves are not called freemen by the United States writings and carpetbaggers.  They are referred to as freedmen.  This continued to make the ex-slaves a marked class of people.  They were not given free-man status but freed-man status.

  3. The word emancipation, when taken back through word study into the ancient Roman civil law does not mean to make or set free.  It means the slave was sold to the State!

  5. Frederick Douglass, abolitionist, hero for the freed slaves, former slave, and U.S. Ambassador complained of his token status.  He also remarked that until the "chattel slavery" upon all persons was lifted that no man would truly be free.
