I believe that we too easily become distracted with personalities and side issues in our elections and that opens the door for the destructive policies of the transformers to become entrenched.  We focus on individual races rather than the Republic to our own hurt. 

I understand that it is in the individual races that we are able to cast our ballots for those we choose to represent us in Washington.  I do not mean to diminish that.  I also understand that we cannot vote in all the elections nationwide.  However, we can focus on the overall objective of the candidates and political parties and work through the means available to support or expose candidates and political agendas. 

I believe that dating back to the statement by Benjamin Franklin when asked at the constitutional convention, “Dr. Franklin, what kind of government do we have?”  He said, “A Republic, madam if you can keep it.”  The “if you can” is the decisive factor and sadly, we have too frequently lost sight of what we are to keep, how we are to keep it, and why it is imperative that we maintain oversight in our government.

Our national bureaucracy has been infiltrated by statists, globalists, and political activists seeking ideological agendas that are counter-republicanism.  They are anti-everything our founders proposed, established, and warned of the ease with which it could be dismantled.  We are voting for the Republic, Inalienable Rights, and Freedom.  I am soberly serious in that declaration.  Our individual and national freedom is hanging in the balance.

Under the current administration, we have watched our economy be reduced to ashes.  We have watched the mandates and restrictions based on incomplete and often inaccurate information regarding the pandemic caused by the Wuhan Virus (COVID-19).  We have watched from the national down to the local level politicians and bureaucrats seize the opportunity to impose their brand of totalitarianism and revoke our liberties.  They have infringed upon our constitutional rights and, initially, we sat in silence and complied like docile sheep. 

Over time, many that were seeking to be compliant began to realize that maybe, just maybe we had not been given full disclosure.  Many began to realize that the economy was needlessly shuttered.  As people began to feel the pinch at the pump for gasoline to power their automobiles enabling them to live their lives, work, and earn a living, they began to question their actions. 

We have observed the growing shortages in the healthcare industry, airline pilots, teachers, and a myriad of other occupations.  We have experienced the escalating prices of energy, food, clothing, and virtually every good and service we need to continue as a sovereign nation and individuals.  Virtually none of it was necessary and virtually every action was rooted in a political agenda and ideology that was the antithesis of freedom. 

I have heard the moans, complaints, criticisms, and vitriolic language in reaction to our current state.  I hear people gripe and lambast politicians from one party or the other without focusing on the root problem and the prime objective we should be voting on in November.

Yes, the power needs to be stripped from any politician or party that runs amok in an escalating push to fundamentally transform America.  Yes, to defeat as many of those as possible.  Yes, we need to focus on individual statewide races, governorships, legislators, and local politicians as well.  Yes, to all those.  If we give control of the House and Senate to the GOP, I am confident that we will see moderate resistance to the destructive policies now being enacted.

I wish I could say, the GOP will drain the swamp, dismantle the Deep State, and slam the brakes on the Biden administration’s trainwreck, but I try not to deal in fantasy.  There are too many establishment types in both parties who are peas in the same pod with different letters after their names. 

However, I do believe that we can send a message to Washington that will cause the career political elitists to take notice.  How?  We can become vocal.  We can become involved.  We can turn out to vote En masse and then volunteer as poll watchers and sound the alarm at every irregularity.  We can begin our campaign to flood the DC switchboard with phone calls.  We can fill the political email boxes with our vocalizations of what we desire and expect.  We can blow up their phones with our texts.

What is our message?  We want the Republicanism of the Founding Fathers restored.  We want the FBI purged of all political activists and agents of liberalism.  We want the IRS depoliticalized and to end the army of new armed agents who are willing to use deadly force on citizens.  We need to demand the restoration of the military to be the fighting force it was designed to be.  We need to demand a return to Constitutionalism. We want God to be honored in our public square.

Will our saying that is what we want, impress them?  Not by itself.  But if we couple that with putting our money where our mouth is and being persistent in our calls, texts, letters, and voting, we will cause a ripple in the political waters they cannot ignore.  We will not achieve our objective in one election.  We must become committed, like those valiant patriots in 1776 to fight to the finish.  We must become smarter than them and learn to listen to not only what they say but watch what they do.

We have been played by politicians and this occupant of the White House and his team have used racial hoaxes to accrue power since the inauguration.  Sadly the Left have weaponized race and their propaganda arms in the MSM parrot the claims that if you are not a Leftist Democrat you are a racist.  The propaganda is never ceasing, and more than two to one press releases have been issued by the DOJ regarding the J-6ers domestic terrorists.  Why?  Because painting all conservatives as insurrectionists is more politically profitable than focusing on real and present threats to our republic.

We have the FBI Swat Teams raiding the homes of Pro-Life citizens and organization leaders in the name of protecting our democracy.  It is a gross overreach of their authority and power and has the blessing if not the direction of the DOJ and the White House.  We have become a nation, like the despotic totalitarian regimes of communist and third-world nations, where our law enforcement, military, and bureaucracies are weaponized against the opposition of the party in power.  That is what we are voting on next Tuesday! 

Sadly, many in the religious world have joined forces with the Leftists and either misinterpret the Bible, the value of the home and family, and the moral fiber needed to survive as a republic, or they ignore those precepts.  We recently had the U.S. Catholic Bishops celebrating illegal immigration.  Some religious authorities are insisting that the Bible supports abortion when the Bible and virtually all ancient Jewish history reveal that abortion was considered murder and anathema to God’s commandments.

I know that some will take umbrage at my usage of the Bible, but it is the core of my personal beliefs, and I will not run from my beliefs.  I believe that God values life and freedom.  I believe that America was founded on principles embodied in the Ten Commandments and the biblical precepts regarding government and law.  If you disagree that is your privilege.

We are voting for the Republicanism of the Founding Fathers in this and every election.  I pray that you will become inspired, emboldened, and committed to the cause of preserving the United States of America and returning our culture to its moral moorings, which would be to return to God.

God bless you and God bless America!


2 Timothy 1:12 – “…I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.”  NKJV

I believe in God and Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior!  I am troubled over what I perceive to be a lack of commitment in much of the Christian community today.  I know that sounds judgmental, but I honestly do not mean it to be.  I just question and do not understand some of what I see.  I am startled by the lack of vision for the whole and the abundance of vision for self that I hear in churches and from believers.

I could allow myself to think as I used to think before I experienced the Christ of the Cross.  I have an option to either blend in with the crowd and popular thinking or I can opt to swim upstream against the current of much popular thinking.  I choose to invite the Holy Spirit to enable me to think God’s thoughts!

I have been amazed at how many people come into local fellowships declaring that God has called them to be there and then depart over frivolous things.  I have witnessed people starting churches only to find it difficult and declare that God said to shut it down.  My question is always, “Did God instruct, you to do it initially?”  If so, does that mean God is fickle and changes His mind at the first sign of difficulty?  If the difficulty is a justification to quit, how did the early church survive?  James suggested we both expect trouble and respond to trials with joy for it is helping develop our faith and courage.

I declare today that I do not have all the answers and sometimes wonder if I have any answers.  However, I realize that I do not have to have all the answers.  I know the one who does!  I can trust God to be who He declared He was and is and rest confidently in the fact that He knows my need before I even pray.  I trust Jesus to be Lord! 

I make the choice to think according to the Word of God and base my thinking on what God says not how I feel, desire, wish for, or prefer.  I choose to adjust my life to fit what He says rather than try to adjust His word to fit my life.  I choose even when I cannot see in the natural and it seems the promise is delayed or will not come. I choose to believe in and trust God.

I choose to stand against the powers of darkness, not in my strength but on the basis of the shed blood of Jesus and His Covenant revealed in His word.  I choose to roll myself onto God and trust Him in all things and at all times. 

I choose to allow God’s word to adjust my thought processes bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.  I confess that I have had a lot of practice in wrong thinking and now invite the Holy Spirit to reprogram my thought life.  I ask that He convict me every time I drift toward the old thought patterns and bring me into conformity with the Word and thereby transform my life.

That is my declaration today!  What is yours?   

May God be with you as you go through your day!


The question at this time of year in an election cycle is, “What Kind of Government Do You Want?”  Maybe a secondary question is, “What Kind of Government Are You Willing to Tolerate?”  The latter question might be more germane to the current political scene.  Why would I say that?  Because of our more recent history of apathy, animus toward a personality, and willing blindness to the destruction being done.  If that holds true, then we are in for at least two more years of abysmal economics and assault on our liberties. 

I believe that one of the major goals in every American election should be the defeat of Big Government Socialism.  However, many polls indicate that the thirty-five and under crowd largely support socialism of some form.  I believe that is because they do not have the experience or the understanding of what those entails.  Sadly, they are not likely to gain either between now and November 8, 2022.

Focusing on individual candidates will not achieve that objective.  We may defeat Joe Biden or whomever the Democrats offer in 2024.  We may defeat some of the main Democratic players and that will not do the trick.  We must have a workable, definable, and obtainable plan to ensure that Big Government Socialism cannot survive in America. 

That means we must develop the party platform to mandate that objective.  The Democrats will advance their brand of Socialism and their anti-capitalism agenda.  They will harp on their perceived horrors of not being able to kill babies in the womb, at will.  They will insist that man is destroying the planet and we must end all use of fossil fuels, turn to green energy, and inflict carbon taxes on businesses and the public.  They will insist value of grooming our children into transgenderism, homosexuality, and gender confusion.  Then they will offer their plans to tax us into oblivion and strip us of our inalienable rights. 

That should be enough to send every voter scurrying to vote the Leftists out, but unfortunately, millions agree with that ideological position.  We have a greater racial divide today than we have had in decades.  We have more toxic liberal activism today than ever in my lifetime.  We have more politicians concerned about their position, power, and purse than ever.  We have the establishment on both sides of the aisle hesitant to trim spending and reduce the size of the bloated entity called the federal government. 

It is way past time for modest reforms and token attempts to reduce spending, reduce the deficit, and loosen the grip of the federal bureaucracy on our lives.  It is time to radically transform the current government, restoring it to what the founder’s original intent was.  It was to be a limited government with specified powers and we the people were to be the true overseers and owners of the government.  They are supposed to govern by the consent of the people. 

Today, they do not care about the consent of the people and believe that there are no inalienable rights, only those deemed applicable and acceptable by the ruling class of elitist politicians.  It is time for that to end!  It is time to get out the vote and get out and vote!  In just days we will be going to the polls and casting our ballots for candidates who supposedly will do our bidding in Washington. 

Unfortunately, if history repeats itself many of those vocal and promising fresh faces will become part of the system shortly after being sworn in.  It may be money.  It may be coercion.  It may be the taste of power.  It may be grandiose views of their own political value.  It may be the influence of dark forces that seem to operate freely in DC.  Whatever it is, too many caves and go along to get along and we are left longing for that limited government we were promised.

The Founders feared an overly powerful Centralized Federal Government and what we have today would make them turn over in their graves.  We could turn back the clock and study the actions of both Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Regan in their drive to defeat Big Government Socialism.  Sadly, we have become a reactionary self-absorbed entitled society.  A people more interested in “what’s in it for me” than “what is best for the republic and posterity?”

If we have any hope of reversing the decades-long development of centralized power in Washington, we have to have a plan, and a strategy and articulate it as did both Thatcher and Reagan.  Thatcher condemned socialism as theft that was both unsustainable and immoral.  I agree with that assessment.  Eventually, you run out of other people’s money to pay the fare for free everything.  There are no free lunches, somebody pays for them.

Socialism has failed in every country that it has been attempted.  It is one of those ideas that may look workable on paper and even desirable until it is implemented and soon it wrecks the economy and destroys initiative.  In one of Thatcher’s speeches, she pulled out Friedrich Hayek’s 580-page ‘The Constitution and Liberty’ and slammed it on the podium declaring, “This is what we believe!” 

If we have any hope of salvaging the Republic known as the United States of America, we must develop a plan and articulate it everywhere.  We cannot be vague, and elected politicians must demonstrate a commitment to that vision.  Lip service is insufficient and will guarantee a rejection in the next election cycle. 

I am convinced that most Americans, at least those who work, pay taxes, and have to pay their own way are feeling the pinch.  I am convinced that most of those know that we had it far better before Biden.  They know that Biden’s plan is the Obama plan on steroids and is a train wreck.  Sadly, with Obama, it became an emotional issue based on race rather than actual policy and what was happening.  With Biden, those of us who oppose his agenda and that of his party are deemed, domestic terrorists, misogynists, xenophobes, racists, deplorables, haters, and semi-fascists. 

What do we need to do to salvage America, defeat Big Government Socialism and return to being the Republic our Founders established?  There are numerous things, and I cannot list them all, but some highlights would include:

  • We must control spending, bring down the cost of living and balance the budget.  That will never happen if we stay with baseline budgeting rather than going to a zero-based budgeting process.
  • We must restore our energy independence.  We can and should develop alternative energy, but we should not destroy our economy and lives by forcing the transition. 
  • We must secure the border.  A nation that does not have a secure border is not a nation and faces incredible national security threats daily.
  • We must enforce the law and keep violent criminals in jail and back law enforcement while making any necessary adjustments in policies or personnel.
  • We must focus on restoring the family and parental control of the lives of their children.
  • We must restore education to teaching real history not a revised, sanitized, or politicized brand.  The truth is the truth, and it will free us to move forward.

I plead with every legal American voter to examine the facts and stop allowing your bias to dictate your vote.  I urge everyone to reject the fallacious promises of the socialists and those who want to make America something other than what it was founded to be.  I urge everyone to carefully study the party platforms and then vet the candidates and be prepared to hold their feet to the fire.  We must reassume responsibility and become determined to hold ALL politicians accountable.

Lastly, we need to return to God and restore His rightful place in our society and seek to strengthen the family unit where there is a father and a mother in the home.  We did not get where we are overnight, and we will not dig our way out of this state of depravity and declension overnight.  We have a colossal task in front of us and I pray that as those patriots in 1776, we will rekindle the flame of freedom in America!

God bless you and God bless America!


I have some friends who are totally invested in the view that Green Energy and believe it is the only hope for the planet. I have others who believe that Fossil Fuels are sufficient and no need to pursue that path.  I happen to be one who believes it to be prudent to use all sources of energy available but not destroy the economy and lives in the process. 

When energy becomes a political football, those of us who are not part of the process but are dependent upon energy for our homes, businesses, travel, etc. are the ones hurt.  Visionaries have always been the driving force behind many changes in our societal evolution and progress.  Not all innovations by the visionaries have been viable and some are so outrageously costly they are not reproducible by the average citizen.

It has always taken decades to transition from one technology to another. Both the vision of the entrepreneurs and the demand by the public create a niche for those transitions to occur.  Supply and demand, at a reasonable price, are always key factors in the success or failure of those innovations.  It took fifty years to transition from the horse and buggy to the automobile.  Before there were complaints about smog, traffic jams, congestion, and loss of public space there were complaints about horse poop, flies, and the smell associated with it. 

Alternative energy is not a bad thing! But unless it is allowed to develop technologically and made affordable and viable it should not be imposed on the citizens.  Using the old technology and energy sources until and even after there are readily available and reliable alternative energy sources would be the prudent path. 

The idea that having enough fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal) to supply the nation without dependency upon middle eastern oil cartels being impossible is a wrong position.  Under the last administration, we proved we could be energy independent and the discoveries of untapped oil underground in the U.S. is proof that we could be again.  We are once again dependent not because of a lack of supply but because of bad political policies and the push to transition to Green Energy due to the false claims of the climate alarmists.

The transition from one technology or energy source to another must be done with great care.  Let’s consider Electric Vehicles such as Tesla.  Those are not powered by renewable energy although they are electric.  The electricity needed to recharge those batteries comes from the energy produced by oil, gas, and coal.  Also, at least sixty percent of all the tires in the world are produced using synthetic rubber, a byproduct of hydrocarbons.  If we suddenly eliminate all petroleum, where will we get the tires for those EVs?  Are we supposed to drive Fred Flintstone vehicles with stone tires, powered by our own energy? 

What happens when there are no more tires to put on those vehicles and on the massive dirt movers, tractors, etc. all needed to produce the food and everything else what will we do?  If you eliminate the hydrocarbon synthetic fibers used in clothing that produces another problem.  PETA protests loudly against using any animal fur for clothing. I suppose that when the synthetic fibers are gone those Climate Alarmists who are demanding the immediate elimination of petroleum will become nudists.  Not only that, ladies where will your lipstick come from?

This administration has declared war on the oil and gas industry and the president is demanding that oil companies and gas station owners lower the price that he caused.  It seems that King Biden and Company have not done any research into the situation regarding the production of gasoline.  Even CNBC reported that our refineries are already running at 90% capacity and no new refineries have been built in decades.  That is largely due to the stringent federal regulations and inconsistency in energy policies.  Why risk investing in a refinery if it is likely to be closed due to government policies?

The Keystone XL Pipeline and allowing drilling on federal lands without the overreaching restrictions would have prevented this crisis from transpiring.  But this is not about what is best for America or even making life easier for the public, it is about an ideological agenda that they are hell-bent on achieving. 

I find it laughable that the Climate Alarmists who are influencing the energy policies insist that a Carbon Tax will alleviate the problem.  How?  It does not reduce the Carbon in the atmosphere, it only increases the bottom line of governments, individuals, and corporations that benefit from the payment of those taxes.

China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) approved a coal mine project worth $3.1 billion in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.  It will produce four million tons per year at its optimum production.  The stated goal, “ensure stable energy supply.”  What a novel idea, right?  Taking care of your country’s needs rather than being subservient to foreign sources.  Using what is readily available and dependable rather than depending on energy sources that are difficult to predict and often unreliable.

The evil fossil fuel industry, as it is described by the Climate Alarmists and this administration, is not the problem. The crisis created by Biden’s policies has created a situation where he is pleading with Middle Eastern Countries to step up their production so we can buy from them.  That is beyond insane when we have so much available here. 

The excess funds we are sending to countries like Iran and other avowed enemies of the United States could be used to build refineries and produce domestic crude.  The monies expended in entitlements for illegals and funding projects that have no redeeming value could be invested in our energy production as well.  We could have cheaper energy and not be tied to any foreign source.  But that would not allow the demand for an immediate transition to Green Energy.

Wind and Solar are good, but those pushing those sources are usually opposed to using nuclear energy.  They detest coal, oil, and gas and ignore the true science of CO2 and photosynthesis.  God knew what He was doing when He created this planet, and He assuredly knew what man would produce and discover.  The planet is not so fickle that car farts and fossil fuels are going to destroy it. 

I am 100% in favor of using renewable energy whenever possible and if it is the most efficient energy source.  It also must be affordable.  I feel about this like I do about most things, each person should be allowed to make their choice as to what type of vehicle they will drive.  If you cannot afford and do not want to rely on an EV and prefer the combustion engine you should have that option. 

There is the argument that the batteries last a couple of decades and that mitigates their prohibitive cost for replacement.  I do not know how long those batteries are covered by warranty. If they are like most automobiles, then you get 2-5 years and a stipulated number of miles or hours of use, often prorated.  What happens if the battery goes bad in 3 or 5 years, and it is no longer under warranty?  Then the cost is on you.  Many people would find it impossible to fit that into their budget.

At this point, the electric grid is not capable of handling millions of EVs being plugged in during the same hours.  We are barely able to handle the demand made on the grid now without the inclusion of millions of more energy users.  Therefore, until and unless we allow the technology to further develop, increase our grid capacity, and somehow make renewable energy fully sufficient, we are not ready to transition to Green Energy. 

It may be a feel-good topic, and on the surface seem like a great idea and will save the planet and be economically viable for the citizens, but it is not there yet.  You may disagree and I do not have the space to fully articulate many more reasons to tap the brakes and allow the process to evolve naturally not as a political mandate.

God bless you and God bless America!


No, I am not talking about the Red Dragon of the Book of Revelation, the devil, but China. So, who knew that China was a threat?  Who?  Well, anyone, with an IQ above freezing on the Fahrenheit thermometer, did or should have.  Communist China has long been our most dangerous antagonist and a thorn in the side or pain in the caboose.  They have outstripped the rest of our avowed enemies in design, desire, and ability to wage multiple kinds of war against us.  In fact, they have been waging an economic and technological way for quite some time.  I also believe they have engaged in a measure of biological warfare.  Those are just the tip of the iceberg.

Unfortunately, the current administration will not acknowledge that reality, or our growing inability to combat their efforts to supplant us as the world’s superpower.  In many ways, they have succeeded and are becoming more successful every day largely due to their growing strength and our decline. 

Who do I blame for that?  I would love to say Joe Biden is the sole culprit but that would be erroneous and intellectually dishonest.  It has been developing for some time.  The CCP gained a significant foothold under William Jefferson Clinton’s administration, made inroads under “W”, but made major strides under Barack Hussein Obama.  They were held in check, in a measure under Trump, but now they virtually own the Bidens and are fearless in their designs and desires.  The words of David Farragut in 1864 – “Damn the torpedoes!  Full speed ahead!”  They seem poised to move against Taiwan and whatever else they desire.

China has no fear of America under this presidential administration because they have deep financial ties and, in a measure, own them.  This occupant of the White House has demonstrated his abject weakness in dealing with any foreign power and his inability to guide America. Why would any antagonist be concerned about a WOKE military that is more concerned about pronouns and making sure that transgenders are comfortable in their ranks than being prepared for war? 

I say that about our military, not to disparage the devoted members of our Armed Forces.  I am a Vietnam Veteran and will stand by our service personnel until I die.  However, under Obama, there was an overt purge of the upper echelon of our military and under Biden and his Secretary of Defense and various other bureaucrats there has been a disgusting attempt to reshape the image and preparedness of our fighting forces into a PC Correct, WOKE extension of their views.  That has placed us in great danger and is a national security threat.  I am not surprised at the number of service personnel who have resigned or refused to reenlist.  They too see the dangers!

The CCP has been conducting economic espionage against us.  They are buying farmland near our military bases. Why would they want farmland specifically near military installations?   It is for farming but not growing vegetables.  It is for harvesting intelligence, so they can have the upper hand in any potential military actions.  There are many more reasons, but that is enough that it should have been immediately squashed.  But “The Big Guy” has hands that are soiled with money from China, he dares not kill the goose that is laying his golden eggs.  America first, is not his agenda.  Biden first, would be more accurate. 

China has been engaged in the theft of intellectual property and covertly and sometimes overtly engaged in a disinformation campaign to discredit any opponents to their agents working unimpeded in the United States.  I was deeply disappointed when in the face of the CCP’s brazen activities in the USA, Joe Biden pulled the plug on the Justice Department’s “China Initiative.” 

Remarkably, after he took that action there have been twelve Chinese agents indicted or charged with conducting or directing operations in the United States.  How many more would have been caught if our government continued to work diligently to discover, uncover, and indict the agents working within our borders?  Our U.S. National Counterintelligence and Security Center continues to warn of the escalation of the CCP’s covert campaign to influence politicians at all levels. 

This administration and the Leftists in control of Congress continue to play with fire and if you play with fire, you are likely to get burned.  China’s Xi has issued a stern warning to Biden, Pelosi, and America regarding Taiwan.  They intend to take over Taiwan and he made that clear, according to reports, in a two-hour phone call with Biden.  Biden reiterated that the United States supports independence for Taiwan but that seems empty words in light of his continual bungling of foreign policy.

U.S. military leaders have repeatedly warned of the growing threat emerging from China and believe that Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan will have ripple effects.  Taiwan has been ramping up its military, but it is a tiny molecule compared to the behemoth of China.  It is not David vs Goliath is it Goliath vs a small ant? Without U.S. aid, Taiwan cannot withstand the Chinese assault, and maybe not with our aid.  Will we defend them?  If so to what extent?  Will that plunge us into a dangerous war and possibly a nuclear war?  With Biden, and his frequent gaffes who knows? 

With this administration’s ineptitude regarding the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the continuation of the disappearing lines in the sand that Obama used and Biden embraces, China has no fear of the United States.  Many experts believed that the military action by China would not likely come until 2025 or 2030 but now believe it could be imminent and possible if not likely within the next eighteen months. 

The strange ambiguity of this administration regarding China and their “One China Policy” lends to the threat.  The U.S. neither rejects nor accepts China’s claims over Taiwan.  How is that for straddling the fence?  As an Obama official said, “Joe Biden has been on the wrong side of foreign policy for forty years.”  He was and still is.  The world needs a strong America but has one that is led by milquetoast oligarchs. 

We have a ten-thousand-pound gorilla in the room in Communist China and this administration is inept and often clueless as to how to deal with them.  Part of that is the financial connection of the Biden Family and many of the members of Congress with China.  They have no stomach to bite the hand that is feeding them.  If they were truly concerned about America, they would put America and the American people first even if it were detrimental to their financial bottom line.  Patriotism is not something that can be bought or sold. 

In the 1980s President Ronald Reagan understood the importance of semiconductors for America.  He said, “the health and vitality of the U.S. semiconductor industry are essential to America’s future competitiveness.”  Sadly, we abandoned that vision and allowed our semiconductor innovation to decline, while Asia became a major player in that arena.  Currently, 90% of the advanced semiconductors are manufactured in Taiwan.  Now, do you understand more why China and General Secretary Xi are determined to take them over?  It has less to do with geography than economics. It is no longer a question of if they will use force but when.  The world needs America’s strength, and we have what we have in the White House and Congress.  May God help us and the world.

China has plans to build over thirty semiconductor factories in the near future and is spending hundreds of billions of dollars to attract companies, including American companies to fill their supply chain.  The Chinese are stockpiling the tools needed for manufacturing the chips and we are experiencing shortages.  We are asleep at the wheel and Bumblin’ Hidin’ Biden is eating his ice cream, twiddling his thumbs, and denying any danger.  I am not Chicken Little, and we are in danger of the sky falling on us like a giant meteor. 

America, it is time to clean house in Washington!  Not just in Congress and the White House but in the courts, the bureaucrats, and at the State and Local Levels too.  Our future and freedom are hanging in the balance.  Please pray and remember the dangers and damages when you vote in November.

God bless you and God bless America!

2024 – AMERICA or NO MORE?

2024 – AMERICA or NO MORE?

I really do not like to be gloom and doom and would prefer to paint a rosy picture of our present condition and the future prospects for America.  I really would!  Sadly, we have an occupant of the White House that is either suffering from a severe case of dementia or is incomprehensibly diabolical.  The third option is both, but regardless of which is the real picture, we are in a world of hurt in our Republic.

This President and Vice President have difficulty putting together coherent sentences.  The Vice President offers word salads that are incomprehensible, and the President reads every line of the teleprompter including the directions his handlers give him.  He stumbles, bumbles, mumbles, and then gets angry and lashed out when questioned or when he becomes frustrated with his obvious lack of coherency.

We are in danger of him making gaffes or hurling insults at the wrong people at the wrong time and plunging us into a state of war.  He is either wittingly or unwittingly destroying our economy, waging war on our freedoms, encouraging leftist political activists to act violently when they do not get their way, and destroying the sovereignty of the United States of America.

The embracing by the Left of the anti-liberty groups is promoting fascism more openly and prolifically than at any time in American history.  The Left including the Fascist ANTIFA hurl the word ‘fascist’ around in a promiscuous manner and while the BLM founders have acknowledged their Marxist roots the ANTIFA crowd pretends to be for freedom.  That is true only if Freedom means the elimination of anyone and everything not of their ethnicity and ideology.  Otherwise, they are the antithesis of Freedom and Liberty.

Their use of the terms fascism and fascist as pejoratives hurled toward whatever the pro-freedom groups on the right are doing is telling.  The rabid climate change alarmists and activists insist that the Supreme Court’s EPA ruling amounts to a ‘judicial coup’ and is a descent into fascism.  Anyone who questions the transgender, homosexual, or pro-abortion ideology is deemed, fascist. Basically, anyone and anything other than their agenda Anyone who fails to embrace their brand of Fascism.

The National Center for Constitutional Studies (NCCS) offered a powerful explanation of what is happening in today’s American government.  They said, “Government is defined in the dictionary as “a system of ruling or controlling,” and therefore the American Founders measured political systems in terms of the amount of coercive power or systematic control which a particular system of government exercises over its people. In other words, the yardstick is not political parties, but political power. Using this type of yardstick, the American Founders considered the two extremes to be anarchy on the one hand and tyranny on the other. At the one extreme of anarchy, there is no government, no law, no systematic control, and no governmental power, while at the other extreme there is too much control, too much political oppression, and too much government.” 

The promoters of anarchy are not pro-freedom but anti-liberty and that is where virtually all the Leftist Activist Groups fall.  Those on the pro-freedom side of the equation base their arguments and goals on the Constitution, Liberty, and Limited Government.  Would you include Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Pol Pot, and Mao Zedong as champions of Freedom, Liberty, and Limited Government?  I thought not.

Yet, the anti-liberty activists cherry picks their historical facts and offer the most outlandish lies or half-truths to back their arguments.  They are not concerned about the facts and truths and follow the ideology of Adolf Hitler, “The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.”  He also said, “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”  I know others said things about repeating lies. 

Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.  The lie can be maintained only for such a time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic, and/or military consequences of the lie.  It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”  If that does not make you sit up and take note of what is happening today, nothing will.

The riots of the past few years, the societal collapse, cultural invasion, shortages, and staggering inflation has provided the globalist with the prospects of a perfect storm for national instability.  If they can make us unstable enough, they have a pathway to imposing tyrannical control and advancing their World Agenda making America a memory and nothing more.

There is a concerted effort to force those of us who disagree with their agenda to abandon our core convictions of faith, governance, and independence and embrace their perverted agenda.  We have documented evidence that they are seeking to shift the global food supply from one that is based on high-yield, fertilizer-intensive crop farming and traditional cattle and poultry production to their new ‘sustainable’ diet.

What is the new diet they are seeking to transition to?  Insects and laboratory-grown synthetic meats.  Imagine that!  Lab-grown synthetic meat!  If you cannot imagine the clear and present danger that would be, you are not thinking.  Many are fearful of the vaccines and there is just cause to be concerned because of what can be added to a vaccine injected into the body.  However, imagine the ease of achieving population control and reduction through synthetic meat produced in a lab somewhere.  Wow!

Some nations of the world are pushing back, and we should be too.  However, there is little chance of that unless we wrest control of the government from the hands of the followers of the toxic liberal agenda being advanced.  One nation that is pushing back is Sri Lanka. 

The cost of food and fuel has grown so outrageously high that the tiny nation almost collapsed and still may.  The president fled the country, the prime minister promised to resign, and the tiny socialist nation is in a state of emergency.  Citizens have had enough and have taken over the capital.  Will that happen in America?  I do not know but if the economy stays in the tank, energy prices stay astronomically high, and the predicted shortages occur, people of all ideological persuasions will react out of a desire to survive.  We might see what I would call, a people take over in the near future.

In the Netherlands the farmers are being destroyed, their farms seized, and they are beginning to push back.  Some of those same efforts are being seen in Italy, Poland, and Germany.  Canada’s Castro-loving Prime Minister used his iron fist to use government power to seize bank accounts to dismantle the Canadian Trucker’s Freedom Convoy, but the public is growing weary.

2024 will America be anymore?  That depends on what we do in November 2022 and how much we allow the politicians to continue their draconian demonstrations of edicts and mandates.  If we unite and get their attention, they might back off a little and if we can reclaim the Congress, we can begin the long arduous process of restoration.  It will not be easy, without casualties, and cheap.  Freedom is never Free but worth the price paid to secure and maintain it.

May God help us to awaken and return to our Constitution, the Bible, and moral sanity.  God bless America and God bless you!


I am engaging in hyperbole and at the same time being profoundly serious in asking that question.  I suppose the answer to the title question would be, that it depends.  Depends on what?  It depends on who you are talking to and what you are talking about.  In today’s political climate I would say, it may be more akin to the unicorn and dodo bird than a dinosaur.  If it exists, it is extremely rare, and I cannot definitively tell you the last time I witnessed it from leftist politicians and activists.

I can only imagine the microscope that puts me under, and the target placed on my back.  We have a world or a segment of the government that is guilty of what Proverbs warns against.  In Proverbs 17:15 we are told, “He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the righteous, both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.” 

The Old Testament prophet Isaiah also spoke to it and sounded the alarm.  In Isaiah 5:8-30 he pronounced judgments for the wicked behavior of the nation Judah.  That could easily be applied to any nation that rejects moral sanity.  In verse twenty he pronounced God’s disdain and impending judgment upon those, “who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”

The apostle Paul addressed it in writing to Timothy regarding the condition of people in days such as we are now living.  In 2 Timothy 3:15, Paul spoke of the last days and how terrible things would be.  He spoke of the attitude and actions of people and described people who had an inordinate love for self, money, and pleasure.  He described them as making money their god, being boastful, filled with pride, disobedient, disloyal, disrespectful, ungrateful, unloving, slanderous, lacking self-control, treacherous, and rash.  When the self becomes our god and the rights and needs of others dissipate to nothingness we are in a crisis.

According to a YouGov poll recently conducted sixty-three percent of Americans oppose the Biden administration and the Department of Education’s plan to amend Title XI’s definition of sex and the embracing of the Woke and endless genders.  Seventy-one percent of all Americans also believe that biological males SHOULD NOT be allowed to compete in women’s sports.  I guess rational thought exists, but government officials do not have the capacity to exercise it, so they ignore it.  This brings another question to the fore, which we will deal with later.

The poll revealed that sixty-one percent believe that parental consent should be required before school counseling on gender dysphoria or transgender ideation with the students.  Hello to rational thought, but again the government is devoid of it and presses forward against the wishes of the majority of the people.    Additionally, sixty-nine percent believe that parents should have the right to opt their children out of sex education courses in schools.  Again, rational reason and thought are alive but ignored and non-existent in the government.  That demands we do something to rectify that situation.

The administration is pushing to make the southern border non-existent, and we have and are experiencing large migrant caravans heading our way.  The latest is just in time for the November elections and certainly in time for the 2024 elections.  Is that a coincidence?  It is difficult to accept it as being so.  A caravan that moved out of the Mexican city of Tapachula on the Guatemalan border contained 11,000 or more migrants and expected to grow to over 15,000 by the time it reaches the border.

The migrants (illegal invaders) are demanding that Joe Biden recall Title 42 and said, “Now we need him to keep his promise.”  Wow!  Keep his promise!  America is in the throes of the worst economy since the Great Depression, gas prices are at an all-time high, shortages are everywhere, and the focus is on his promise to illegals, not American citizens. Is this acceptable in a president?  If it is then the answer to my title question is, “Dead, Dead, Dead.”

We know that voter fraud has been prevalent and those on the Left in the media and politics insist that it does not exist.  That is unless they deem the vote might be against them, then even legitimate votes are suspect and need to be examined.  Now, we are apprised that there was an exceptionally large mistake in the 2020 census.  Did it favor one side of the political equation?  If you said yes, you get the gold star!

In Hawaii, Delaware, Rhode Island, Minnesota, New York, and Massachusetts the Census Bureau admitted they overcounted.  Interesting, right?  They overcounted in the states Biden won.  But it does not stop there.  They undercounted in Texas, Illinois, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Arkansas.  Five of the six undercounted states went to Trump in 2020.  All a mere coincidence, right?  Watch out for the flying pigs and unicorn poop as you walk along. Only a successful Supreme Court challenge can correct that. 

The insanity and unmitigated lies told by this president are more than disturbing.  If it were simply a matter that he engages in that kind of distortion that would be one thing, but the fact that the media, the Left, and far too many people believe him and repeat his ‘malarky’ is frightening.

In his diatribe and incoherent rant about guns and his supposed visit to a trauma hospital in New York, where he said doctors told him something impossible to believe.  He said, they showed him X-rays of gunshot wounds caused by various firearms.  Then he said, “They said a .22-caliber bullet will lodge in the lung, and we can probably get it out – may be able to get it and save the life, a 9mm bullet blows the lung out of the body.”  What?  The medical doctors told you that.  Are you serious?

If medical doctors actually said that and were serious, their medical licenses should immediately be pulled, and they should be kept away from patients.  They are so blatantly ignorant that they would be a danger to lives and the public must be kept safe from them.  Biden then went into one of his incoherent mutters about ‘self-protection hunting’ whatever that is!

Then Democrat Representative Don Beyer of Virginia proposed a 1,000% tax on AR15s and other semiautomatic rifles that the Left identifies as ‘assault weapons.’  So, if they cannot do away with the second amendment, then take the back door and tax them into extinction.  What would be next?  That would drive the price of those sporting rifles up by $4,000-20,000 each.

I will wrap up by saying, I am no longer willing to call Joe Biden a victim due to his obvious mental and medical issues.  He is and always has been the aggressor in pursuing fundamental changes to our republican system of government.  He is allowing the assault on our southern border and thereby threatening America and Americans.  He is waging war on family and faith implementing mandates, edicts, and regulations that require us to cede our beliefs and embrace the Woke agenda.  He is single-handedly destroying our energy and economy and insists it is necessary to cause us to transition to the Green Energy and Climate Change agenda.  That is not a victim that is a victimizer!

America, if rational thought and moral sanity are alive in America we need to unite and allow it to reclaim its rightful position at the lofty pinnacle of our republic.  It is time that we divest those who want to ‘fundamentally transform’ our republic from any ability to do more harm.  It is time that we stand for Faith, Family, and Freedom and find a better class of politicians and begin our constitutionally authorized oversight of the government.

God bless you and God bless America!


That may sound like a foolish question and one so obvious that anyone could define it and understand it with ease.  However, defining success is like most things in life, something that means different things to different people.  I think most would agree, that success is in achieving our objective, whatever that might be.  Success, for some, is possessions, position, pleasure, and things material.  But the question remains, “What is Success?”

When it comes to the current administration, how do we define success?  Their rhetoric diatribe and spin are that Biden is Building America Back Better.  Their talking points insist that the economy is better, border security is better, national defense is better, education is better, and on and on.   Their definition is that whatever the Leftists do is a catalyst for America’s success and everything the Right does is anathema to our Republic. 

If I look at what is happening based on facts, real statistical data, inflation, national security, and the situation on our southern border my definition differs greatly from theirs.  If I consider what is happening in our educational system, political correctness, energy, and our international standing, my definition differs greatly from theirs. 

I contend that this administration has failed in virtually every issue facing America and Americans.  That would include crime, race relations, immigration, national security, energy, the economy, and regulatory controls.  I dare not omit the overt attempts to throttle free speech for anyone disagreeing with their rhetoric, diatribe, and spin.  They, on the other hand, would call those successes. 

Thus, the question surfaces once more, “What is Success?”  I am not Diogenes searching for “one honest man or politician” but an American seeking the truth.  Pilate’s question to Jesus is fitting, “What is Truth?”  In his 1957 lecture on communication, John Gage asked, “Why must we search for the Truth?  Why don’t we have it?”  I have been asking that question of politicians for as long as I have been able to be involved and vote. 

The line Jack Nicholson spoke in the movie A Few Good Men echoes today, “You can’t handle the truth!”  I asked a politician about an issue and was told, “You need to just let us handle this, you don’t know enough to even ask the right questions.”  I asked, “Then, what is the right question?”  He said, “You people just need to let us handle things, we know more and know better than you what needs to be done.”  I said, “That’s how we got in this mess,” and our conversation was over.

As an American who tries to be abreast of current issues, studies history, and believes in God and the Bible, I believe we have the truth but are blinded by bias and personal agendas.  Politicians, like most people, will reveal their true intent and colors, when they think they are safe.  Sometimes, politicians like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer let their mouths overload their behinds and reveal more than they intended.  They do so when they think we have been hoodwinked and their secrets are sufficiently hidden.

We live in a world that has largely rejected absolute truth and prefers that its version of the truth take preeminence over facts.  I believe that much of the transition away from Transcendent Truth has been due to decades of mind-numbing educational revisionism and atheistic teaching as well as much of the church trying to be more like the world to attract the world.  Both have proven detrimental to holding to absolutes and transcendent truth.

The only way to connect to transcendent truth is through faith.  It is the God-oriented doctrine of our origins and life itself that enables us to exercise the faith needed to receive and adhere to absolute truth.  The moral fiber of our world has deteriorated dramatically in the past 50-plus years and today many feel that all that is needed is to be as good as the next person and not do a lot of bad things.  A life-altering connection to God through salvation is tossed aside. 

Just saying we are something does not make it so.  I believe that for us to be successful in turning the Republic around and restoring moral sanity and constitutional integrity we must reclaim education.  The idea that a kindergarten child is capable of deciding their sexual orientation is beyond insane.  That child barely knows the difference between a boy and a girl and certainly does not have the mental capacity or maturity to understand anything about sexual orientation.  Behavior is learned and if the groomers are allowed to succeed in producing a generation or two of confused children, we will have confused adults running the world.  That is not success, it is destruction.

One of the greatest failures in our world today is the inability or refusal of all sides to listen to any opposing view.  That is not relegated to the followers of toxic liberalism, globalism, and progressivism, it is also found in conservatives and even Christians.   I believe that none of us have a corner on the truth.  I believe that all of us have flaws in our logic, missing links in our theology, and sometimes allowing our personal biases and preferences to isolate us.  If everything is us against them and tit for tat, we will never see the America our founders established again.  That ship will have sailed forever.

Many waste valuable time arguing over their version of the truth and insist it is the only real truth or the best truth.  Sadly, unscrupulous politicians and people always take advantage of division.  Confusion and chaos are the friends of the tyrant seeking to enslave people.  The more divided people become, and the more chaos is present the easier it is for the would-be lord and master to offer their version of utopia and in the pretense that it is for the best good, bring out the chains.

Seventeenth-century French philosopher and mathematician Blaise Pascal whose religious conversion led him into a life of asceticism.  Out of his pursuit of thought came the Pensées which is a collection of fragments written and spoken by him.  His view of the best ‘version of the truth’ is one that unites Earth and Heaven and restores full access to the Source of our Being.  It is the truth that enables one to become a forever resident and practicing participant in unadulterated Christianity.  It draws all conclusions from the Source rather than attempting to meld God and Truth into our desired view.

Is Joe Biden’s administration a success?  That would be ‘yes’ and ‘no.’  It is yes if the objective is the fundamental transformation of the Republic and the reinterpretation of the Constitution to suit the Leftists’ agenda.  It would be yes if open borders, gender blending, and governmental interpretation of truth are the objective.  It is a resounding NO if you are a Christian and/or a Constitutionalist. 

Our economy is in shambles, inflation is out of control, border security is non-existent, cronyism is rampant, and the weaponization of our intelligence, law enforcement, and the IRS is real.  If that is the goal, then they are extraordinarily successful.  If everyone is viewed as equal under the Law, protecting the defenseless and innocent is the aim, then they are abject failures.  If racial discord is the desired target, then they are astoundingly successful.  If making everyone dependent on the benevolent government, then they have attained a measure of success.  If indoctrination of the gullible, modification of the children, and bribery to buy votes is the objective, then the word is successful.  If it is not, the failure is more apropos.

Our Founding Fathers viewed success from a governmental position to be one where the federal government was limited, and the people were allowed to follow their dreams unimpeded by overreaching mandates and regulations.  They believed that those within individual states should have the autonomy to determine how their state was run.  The federal government was extremely limited.  Today, the opposite seems to be more accurate. Therefore, I believe the view of the Founders would be that today’s American Government is a Failure!

God bless you and God bless America!


In this blog, I will mention COVID-19 a number of times.  I hope you realize that is only one example of what is transpiring, manufactured, and hurled our way.  It is the tip of the iceberg.  If you do not believe that much if not most of what is happening is manmade and manufactured, hopefully, you realize that it is being belched out of the depths of hell and the demonic realm.  If you do not believe in hell, the devil, or hell, surely you, at least, recognize that evil is becoming more prevalent in today’s world and those seeking total power and control or astute in the “Art of War.”

Most have heard of the military text written by China’s Sun Tzu called “The Art of War.”  It is compelling and revealing in light of many things happening in today’s world.  It is germane to the situation in the world today where we have watched tyrannical actions for the past 18 months.  The pandemic called COVID-19 placed the entire world in a virtual prison via fear and governmental mandates mistakenly called laws.  Now, the continuing plagues and problems build on those fears.

I am convinced that God allows things to transpire as a visual of what is coming and what is coming is exponentially worse than the Coronavirus and concerns over the vaccines and boosters.  The next round, if they feel they have failed to achieve their objectives of control and suppression of our inalienable rights will be deadly beyond words.  It will likely be the catalyst that paves the way for the Man of Sin to rise to prominence.

Tzu said, “He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.”  He suggested that armies should never engage in combat unless they have a clear advantage.  He suggested that it is never wise to spread your forces too thin and maintain your base of power.  I believe that is a strategy those who desire the fundamental transformation of America and the world have been using for over one hundred years.  They pick their battles and in so doing create a deception that they are losing when they are strategizing for the next and more winnable battle.

Tzu contended that timing was of the utmost importance.  He said, “The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim.”  I call to remember the words of Obama’s former adviser during an interview in 2008 on ABC’s This Week said, “Never allow a crisis to go to waste.  And by that, I mean that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”  He has reprised that regarding the coronavirus pandemic and said, “Plan for the future.”  He was focused on the economic collapse of our country.  Strategize to take over!

Tzu also argued that “All warfare is based on deception.”  I believe that is readily applied to what has been happening in the present pandemic.  I am not suggesting that COVID-19 Monkey Pox or any of the things we face are not real, They are!  I am suggesting that there is much deception regarding the origin and the effectiveness of the prescribed path to recovery.  The fact that the medical and scientific communities disagree among themselves is cause for concern.  From the beginning, I have asked, “What is it about this we have not been told?” 

The ease with which the panic and pandemonium resulted in fear driving otherwise sensible people to completely surrender their rights was astounding.  I am more convinced than ever that they are following Tzu’s strategy of Disguising Their Plans.  He said, “When able to attack, we must seem unable, when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.”  Deception is the age-old tactic of Lucifer, and he is a master at it.  If one-third of the angels followed him although they stood daily in the presence of God, he must be masterful.

We have watched as manipulation and deception akin to a magician’s sleight of hand distracts what he is doing and then he surprises with his seeming magic.  Tzu said, “To win 100 battles is not the height of skill, to subdue the enemy without fighting is.”  We have watched the disruption of the economy, civil unrest, riots, mayhem, shortages, and fanning the flames of hate and fear rise since 2016.  A strategy to win in 2020 and then to gain ultimate control through deception and without endangering themselves in the process. They used useful idiots to do their dirty work.

Those desiring to destroy our Constitutional Republic and gain total control of America and the world are using Tzu’s tactic of Chaos.  He said, “In the midst of chaos, there is opportunity.”  That is what Rahm Emanuel was referring to in his “Never let a crisis go to waste.”  We have seen the chaos since 2016 with rioting, looting, and murder and I believe it is going to get worse!  We have seen the escalation of the Political Correctness, Critical Race Theory, Cancel Culture, and Revisionist in History used to create a mindset that is open to government intervention.  That would be a colossal mistake for our Republic.

As the haters of our Constitutional Freedoms and Liberties where ‘We The People’ are the owners and overseers of government with the power to fire politicians at the voting booth win a battle, they become more emboldened.  Tzu said, “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.”  The more the Constitutionalists, Conservatives, Republicans, and Christians back off and allow the Leftists Marxists Globalists to win battles they press forward with more urgency.  We have for too long allowed ourselves to be silenced out of fear of being labeled negatively.  I do not care what they call me, I Stand for the Constitution and the Bible.  That is not hate, it is not bigotry, nor is it racist, it is sanity!

Tzu’s strategy included confusion, and destruction within, until conditions became unbearable and unmanageable.  They would allow those in power to propose agendas that were supposed to stabilize and return to normalcy.  The general public would become so distraught and fearful of ultimate destruction they would welcome austere government intervention up to and including martial law.  Then, the stabilizing and normalcy achieved would be the Total Control by those in power.  Freedom would be lost forever without an armed rebellion, which by that time would be a virtual impossibility because of the confiscations.

In Revelation 6 we have the First Seal opened.  I do not believe what we have been experiencing is that event but what has been happening is a visual of what is coming.  It is a warning that God has allowed us to see to inspire us to return to Him rather than surrendering to Fear and passively obey rather than follow His Word and Spirit.

The White Horse Rider is not Jesus, but part of the destruction.  The White Horse Rider with a Crown on his head (symbol of authority) goes forth conquering and to conquer.  He has a bow in his hand is symbolic of an event that will become a reality.  I believe God has allowed us to see a visual through the pandemic of what is coming, and the next thing will be far more destructive and deadly.

The word ‘conquer’ in Greek means to carry off the victory, to win the case legally.  Fear, COVID, violence, and the other things we are being subjected to have literally conquered the world without firing a shot.  The word ‘bow’ in Greek is (taxon).  It might be a stretch but consider the word taxon comes from the root teko which is bear as to bring forth, produce, or give birth.  The Cambridge dictionary defines a toxin as a poisonous substance, especially one produced by bacteria.  The ancient Greek word toxikon means “poison arrow.”  A bow without arrows would be like a gun without bullets.

The Rider has a crown on his head and the word is ‘corona’ in Greek.  Coronavirus was so named because of the crown-like spikes on its surface.  A crown-like virus has poisoned the world and it is unlikely that we will ever return to the old normal.  The plan is to force us to adapt to a new normal. 

The ease with which people surrendered to the mandates without detailed information and adequate proof that what was demanded was necessary, beneficial, or good suggests that when the next event is released from hell, people will willingly comply.  That does not bode well for Freedom or the world. 

I am reminded of the words of Luke 21:26 – “people fainting from fear and expectation of the [dreadful] things coming on the world; for the [very] powers of the heavens will be shaken.”  Amplified.  We are in very dark times and the condition of people’s hearts has grown darker causing many to become fearful.  That brings to mind the words of the apostle Paul to Timothy in 2 Timothy 1:7 – “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and person discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind, and self-control].”  Amplified.

I choose to Trust God, not the Government.  I choose to believe in God’s keeping power, not a pathway prescribed by man that has proven does not work.  I will not live in fear.  I am not suggesting that you take or not take the vaccine.  I am suggesting that you seek God and study carefully the available data in making future decisions about anything.

We are in a war and Tzu’s ‘Art of War’ tactics are being employed visibly.  God bless you and God bless America. 

POTUS – The Office and the Person…

I have deep respect for the Office of President of the United States of America.  However, that respect for the office does not always translate well for the inclusion of the person occupying the office.  The President, no matter who he or she is, is a flawed vessel and we must never lose sight of that reality.  Yet, we have lowered the standard set by the Founding Fathers that the office itself is now tarnished by the election of people morally, ethically, and constitutionally challenged.

I confess I could not bring myself to watch the State of the Union Address in real time.  I know that I should have, so that I would hear, firsthand, what the sitting president and his party are saying.  However, I have read what he had to say and have seen some clips of his speech and I am flabbergasted as to how anyone could embrace this administration’s agenda.  Yet, I know that millions do, and I will possibly be attacked for my stance.

The speech was filled with outright lies and misrepresentations of the truth.  But, as we have witnessed in the past few years, the media tells us that what the Left says is the pristine truth and anything the Right says is evil and destructive.  That kind of biasness is not news it is propaganda. 

Joe Biden and his party are the epitome of a ‘tax and spend’ obsession.  He has dismal approval numbers according to the polls, even those that skew the numbers as favorably as possible for him.  Despite his downward spiral in the eyes of the American voters, he offers us nothing new, beneficial, or corrective to get us out of the funk he has created.  Mr. President, I do not want to hear about ‘electric cars’ and the New Green Deal when I am faced with the outrageous prices at the gas pump.  I want what we had not what we have because it did not have to be.

Mr. President, please stop the diatribe and tired rhetoric of blaming Climate Change for our shattered economy and everything else.  Also, stop blaming Trump for your actions and weakness.  Climate change, manmade or naturally cyclical is not our greatest national security threat, terrorism, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and China are much greater.  Sir, I suggest that the policies of your administration and your part are the greatest internal threat we face.

I was not surprised and had to fight back anger when I read and heard his comments on abortion.  He keep insisting that abortion is about women’s health and their constitutional right to choose.  However, he and those of his ilk seem to be oblivious to the right of that baby in the womb to life.   Abortion is not an advancement of maternal care it is the destruction of a life that will never be lived.  It is robbing the most innocent of the human race of their unprotected right to live! 

Mr. President, how could you with any sense of seriousness tell us that you want to secure the border.  Every action you have taken decries that claim.  You have released a suspected terrorist who illegally entered the United States and allowed him to enter our homeland.  You seek to mandate that legal Americans be vaccinated but give a pass to the illegals entering our republic.  You ignore the criminals, the sick, and those coming here hoping to gain an anchor into our nation via childbirth.  Our educational system, our economy, and our healthcare are all taxed with your failed border policies. 

Mr. President, please stop saying you are a Unifier when you use vitriolic language against your opponents.  Please stop saying you are for Unity when you act and speak in ways that can only divide the Republic and intensify the strained racial tensions that are needlessly being rekindled today.

The energy crisis in America is yours and Americans should make you and your party own it.  The stopping of the life-flow of the Keystone pipeline and the suspension of all drilling on federal lands exacerbated the problem and it will only get worse.  You ended the sanctions that President Trump had placed on the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany.  We continue to fill Russia’s coffers with American dollars via the need to import oil.  We went from energy independence and exportation of oil to energy-dependent with a great need for imported oil to keep us moving.

The false claim about supporting “made in America” was revolting based on his and members of his party’s enrichment via foreign sources.  Ukraine has long been the financial pipeline for the Biden and Clinton families.  The corrupt politicians in that nation and other nations provided a cash cow to our equally corrupt politicians.  I offer the words of Israelmore Ayivor – “You don’t necessarily need atomic bombs to destroy a nation.  Politicians who value their pockets more than the life of citizens always do that every day.”

Now Mr. Biden, “let’s not defund the police; let’s fund them.”  It was only a few short months ago that he and his Vice President along with a myriad of other Leftists were calling for “defunding the police.”  What changed?  Oh, I know, it is the plunging poll numbers and the upcoming mid-term elections.  After that election passes and if they still have control of the Congress, we will hear their previous rhetoric again.

He either does not know or care that inflation has caused the cost of goods and services to skyrocket.  He ignores our pain at the pump where we are paying 50% or more for gasoline to fuel our automobiles to enable us to live our lives.  America, if we do not strip their death grip on America by voting out enough Leftists so we can gain a supermajority in Congress we are in deep deep trouble.

I don’t know if you were party to the Russian invasion of Ukraine other than due to your weakness, but you are following Rahm Emmanuel’s counsel to “never let a crisis go to waste.”  You are following Bill Clinton’s ‘wag the dog’ objective and attempting to rebrand yourself as a wartime president.  I hope the voters are not that blind.

How can you offer such diatribe and balderdash as to say, “we prepared extensively and carefully” regarding Ukraine?”  Seriously?  You did absolutely nothing to stop the attack and watched as European leaders negotiated with Putin while you were conspicuously absent.  More ‘leading from behind’ as your former boss did when he was in office, and you served as his second. 

I long for the days when the office of POTUS will be restored to the pinnacle of respect that it deserves.  Sadly, when inept, corrupt, and even evil people occupy that office, roam the halls of Congress, and sit on the court bench we will watch it deteriorate even further. 

We can have what our Founders envisioned and established but only if we follow their counsel and follow the directives of men such as George Washington.  He said, “The propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”  We must return to God individually and collectively if we hope to save our nation.”

You may agree or disagree with my observation and opinion, that is your Constitutional and God-given right.  I defend your right to disagree and to challenge me.  However, I ask that you examine the facts and ask yourself, “Are you better off now than you were during the four years of Donald Trump?” 

God bless you and God bless America!
