President Woodrow Wilson's Proclaimed The First Official US Mother's On May 9, 1914

Washington, DC...WHEREAS, By a Joint Resolution approved May 8, 1914, "designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day, and for other purposes", the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the government officials to display the United States flag on all government buildings, and the people of the United States to display the flag at their homes or Other suitable places on the second Sunday in May as a public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country;





AND WHEREAS, By the said Joint Resolution it is made the duty of the President to request the observance of the second Sunday in May as provided for in the mid Joint Resolution;

Now, Therefore, I, Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the said Joint Resolu-tion,do hereby direct the government officials to display the United States flag on all government buildings and do invite the people of the United States to display the flag at their homes or other suitable places on the second Sunday in May as a public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.

In witness whereof I have set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be hereunto affixed. Done at the City of Washington this ninth day of May, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fourteen, and of the Independence of the United States one hundred and thirty-eight.

      All of these so called holidays or festivals of men are deeply rooted in pagan origins and have taken the smallest piece of truth from the Hebrew Torah and corrupted them to what you celebrate today.

      The truth is out there.

    As a typical progressive, democrat Liberal, Woodrow Wilson in 1917 led the United States into the First World War. Then he bungled up the peace treaty at Versailles and set the stage for WWII. Typical Democrat foreign policy muck-up.

    President Wilson was the Democratic Party's most effective advocate of advanced progressivism. He rejected the doctrine of the Founders of the Republic in the preface to the Declaration of Independence that people are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights" and asserted the Hegelian principle that the citizen should "marry his interests to the state". Ironically, Woodrow Wilson laid the foundations for a state that has no use for God and uses “every means. . .by which society may be perfected.”

    Recently Wilson’s ideological heir, Barack Obama, tried carrying out his grandiose plan that declares the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution relics of the distant eighteenth century and seeks to bring everyone and everything, including religious groups, under control of the state.

    Wilson was known for his racist policies promoting segregation, and promoted eugenics based on Darwinist theory. His admiration of and cooperation with Planned Parenthood founder and eugenics enthusiast Margaret Sanger makes his Mothers Day act hypocritically astounding. But then…..he’s a typical liberal Democrat; godless lying socialist baby-killers.

      Wilson was the first president to start the flush of America down the toilet!

        Let us never forget it was also Wilson who ordered the Suffragettes jailed. The "big switch" is another lie the modern Democrats believe.

      You're really going to diss Wilson and Obama while your party put Trump in the White House and appears willing to keep him there? Time to reevaluate your perspective.

      By not divesting his business interests (or even fully disclosing them) Trump has been in violation of the Constitution since the moment he was inaugurated. Firing Comey is pretty clearly an attempt to obstruct justice based on Trump's own statements. Trump is regarded as a clown by our allies in Europe and as a sympathetic enabler by America's enemies. Wilson and Obama are geniuses and saints by comparison.
