16 And I did endeavor to preach unto this people, but my mouth was shut, and I was forbidden that I should preach unto them; for behold they had wilfully rebelled against their God; and the beloved disciples were taken away out of the land, because of their iniquity.
17 But I did remain among them, but I was forbidden to preach unto them, because of the hardness of their hearts; and because of the hardness of their hearts the land was cursed for their sake.

-When Scott Bradley ran for Utah Senator he had people calling him asking him what he was going to give them if they elected him; this is how people are now wanting handouts. He told them he could only help them be free to act for themselves, and that wasn’t enough for them.
-people told him to become Senator by running as a Republican and getting money from others who would support him, then once in office he could do what ever he wanted, to the right things contrary to what he would tell those who would give him the money to run would say. He refused the offer, not wanting to be a liar like those already in office, and said he would rather be good with God than win political power. The good ends don’t justify the evil means!
His lecture on Secret Combinations:
-“As bearers of the priesthood, we have been placed on earth in troubled times. We live in a complex world with currents of conflict everywhere to be found.

-The duty is ours, the result is Gods’. That is what they said much in the days of Joseph Smith.

-“The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology” by Ray Kurzweil is a book about how they are trying to use artificial intelligence to connect humans to robots and not require humans to have bodies etc. Very evil.

-“We Are All Socialists Now” Newsweek Magazine 16 February 2009 (Cover Story)
– “The New American Magazine.” President Benson read regularly and gave subscriptions of the magazine to both President Hinckley and President Monson
– Archive Publishers out of Heber City, Utah see them for the publication on the political platform of Joseph Smith. See also (History of the Church, Vol.6, Ch.8, p.197-209; Vol. 5. No. 10. Nauvoo, Illinois, May, 15 1844. Whole No. 94, Times and Seasons, Vol.5, p.528-533)
-John Birch Society. See jbs.org President Benson was a huge advocate, his son Reed worked of them, and his wife Flora was a chapter leader.
-The first comprehensive American dictionary was published in 1828 by Founding Father Noah Webster. In this book he captured the meanings of the words as they were used during the American Founding era. The title of the dictionary is “American Dictionary of the English Language” Noah Webster 1828. Scott Bradley’s book, “To Preserve the Nation,” has a large appendix of words from George Washington’s “Farewell Address” which were defined from this dictionary.
– “It is a paradox that men will gladly devote time every day for many years to learn a science or an art; yet will expect to win a knowledge of the gospel, which comprehends all sciences and arts, through perfunctory glances at books or occasional listening to sermons. The gospel should be studied more intensively than any school or college subject. They who pass opinion on the gospel without having given it intimate and careful study are not lovers of truth, and their opinions are worthless.” (John A. Widtsoe, [1872–1952] of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Evidences and Reconciliations, p.16-17)
-At a breakfast meeting with Elder Dallin Oaks I (Scott Bradley) quoted John Adams as writing to his wife: “The science of government is my duty to study, more than all other sciences; the arts of legislation and administration and negotiation ought to take place of, indeed to exclude, in a manner, all other arts. I must study politics and war, that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.” (Quoted in Adrienne Koch, ed., The American Enlightenment [New York: George Braziller, 1965], pg. 188). Elder Oaks seemed delighted by the sentiment.
– October 1987 general conference talk “Our Divine Constitution” (see Ensign Magazine, November 1987) President Ezra Taft Benson quotes Joseph Smith, saying: “The Prophet Joseph Smith said: ‘t is our duty to concentrate all our influence to make popular that which is sound and good, and unpopular that which is unsound. ‘Tis right, politically, for a man who has influence to use it. … From henceforth I will maintain all the influence I can get'” (History of the Church, 5:286).
Other Notes from Scott Bradley:
– in regard to “celebrities” who endorsed the so-called 1968 Gun Control Act, at least the following endorsed it: Jimmy Stewart, Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, Tom Laughlin, and Kirk Douglas.
-in regards to comments about so-called “celebrities” who have come out in favor of a convention to change the Constitution, there are many “celebrities” who have endorsed a convention to alter the United States Constitution, including the ones noted here and others such as Sara Palin, Rush Limbaugh, David Barton, and sometimes (he seems to drift in and out) Mike Lee.
-Levin’s book “The Liberty Ammendments” is a good example of poorly conceived proposed changes to the United States Constitution. Implementing most of his proposals would fundamentally change the foundation principles of this nation and destroy the way back to proper government. Perhaps we should be grateful he authored the book to show us what is at stake and the depth of misunderstanding of those who wish to change the Constitution.
– the Founding Fathers had under the inspiration of God when the made the Constitution etc. (see Doc & Cov 98:4-11; Doc & Cov 101:77-80)
-to get old J Reuben Clark talks etc. many talks are available in a multi-volume publication from Brigham Young University Press (available at Amazon Books and some other sources), and many are published in LDS general conference reports.
