THE SUPREME COURT – Our Fears, Their Stripes, and America…


Most of us envisioned a more conservative and bolder SCOTUS after President Trump managed to get three new justices approved for the court.  Most of us, but we may have overlooked history, the intense political and peer pressure applied to those justices.  We may have failed to dig deep enough into the character of the appointees.  We may, but then maybe they are who they have always been.

There is something about a lifetime appointment to the most powerful judiciary in the nation that does not always bode well for the Constitution or America.  We have a long history of justices who seemed to change their stripes once appointed to the court and ruled in ways contrary to any sensible reading of the Constitution.  It appears that at least two if not all three of Trump’s appointees are experiencing a metamorphosis of sorts.

After the brutal and vile display by the Left against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and Justice Amy Comey Barrett one would think they would remember those hearings. Wait, maybe that is exactly what is happening, and they are intimidated by the threats and power of the Left.  If they are, the honorable thing would be to resign, but that would put the choices in the hands of Biden and his cohorts.  The result would be a justice that would be unequivocally a liberal leftist. 

The Supreme Court is charged with balancing the power of the Legislative and the Executive Branches not becoming a legislative judiciary.  The Democrat-led Congress and the Biden administration have openly declared their intent to rule without regard to the Constitution. They also have demonstrated their intent to ignore all judicial rulings that do not fit their agenda.  They believe they are the only true interpreters of the Constitution and the final say in what transpires in America. 

The blatant example of ignoring the provision of the Constitution regarding personal property was in the majority of the court upholding the CDC eviction moratorium.  If that were the only concern in their ruling, I would be less disturbed, but it definitively weakened the Constitution and expanded the power of the court unwarrantedly. 

Not to rehash the moratorium but it required that property owners allow others to squat on their property, without compensation, for over a year.  It limited what property owners could do with their own private property.  That would have the framers of the American Constitution rolling over in their graves.  It is a blatant abandonment of the wording and the original intent.  It is not a reinterpretation but an abandonment of that guiding document.

Amazingly, Justice Kavanaugh agreed with the minority but then voted with Justice Roberts, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan.  What?  He agreed with the minority that it was wrong but voted with the Left to keep it in place?  Something is rotten in Denmark. What caused him to do that?  What took place behind the scenes that coerced him to abandon his understanding of the Constitution and vote to shred it?  We need to know, but we likely never will.

There is no provision for waivers to be granted regarding the Constitution.  Kavanaugh explicitly declared that the CDC had been violating the law and then voted to allow it to continue doing so for another month?  Article III of the Constitution grants the Supreme Court the authority to interpret the Constitution not to decide when and if it is okay to violate the law and ignore the Constitution. 

Creative interpretation of the constitution has always been a concern and a problem.  When justices are allowed to use penumbras and emanations to discover things in the Constitution that are not actually written therein, pandora’s box is thrown wide open.  The constitution is not an evolving document but one that is written to mean what it says and says what it means.  It is our guardian of liberty and when the Supreme Court grants itself the authority to modify, ignore, reinterpret, and rewrite it we are doomed as a Republic.

If adherence to the Constitution is deemed conditional, what conditions will be deemed appropriate for those in the Courts, Congress, and the White House?  The document will become a worthless piece of history and our Republic will become nothing more than a fond memory in the minds of the patriots.  We are a Constitutional Republic and the robed masters in the SCOTUS, the self-anointed legislators, and the would-be King in the White House do not have that right or authority to ignore our guiding document.

A review of the history of the world reveals that all dictators and totalitarian despots have deemed it their right and within their purview to change any law at their discretion.  They believed themselves to be the law, not one subject to it.  In their granting themselves the authority and power to change and apply the Constitution at their discretion the SCOTUS, Congress, and the White House have anointed themselves as councils of monarchs. 

We need a reminder that our first president George Washington refused the plea to become America’s first monarch.  He believed in the idea and ideal of a Republic led by citizen representatives and adherents to the rule of law.  He believed that our creation as the Free Republic was by the providence of God and that only as we followed the law and God’s precepts could we remain strong and free.  Those in power and control today, have abandoned those precepts. 

The Supreme Court is to interpret the law not, make it.  Sadly, the current group sitting on the bench appears to believe it is their right and privilege to not only interpret the law but to determine which law is to be obeyed and which is to be ignored.  They are engaged in legislating from the bench and in a great measure becoming the sole arbiters of the Constitution.  The Democrats have no real need to pack the court with liberal justices, they have a set of demigods on the bench serving their purpose and backing their play.

America, if we do not reclaim control of Congress and the White House, we will see a further erosion on the SCOTUS and thereby watch our freedoms and liberties disappear.  It is time we reign in all branches of government.  The only way that is possible is by returning to God and uniting strongly enough to provide pink slips for the majority of them.  Will we do it?  Can we achieve it?  To the first question, I do not know.  To the second, only if we become concerned enough to make a 1776 commitment to America.  Only if we return to God and His moral precepts.  Only if we will pray, work, and vote.

God bless you and God bless America!

CONSISTENTLY INCONSISTENT…


I use that phrase as a description of the medical experts and the Biden administration, but it could be used for politics and politicians as a whole.  I frequently find myself asking, “Do they even know what they believe?”  I find myself asking, “Do they think we are that uninformed and lacking the ability to ‘fact check’ their ‘fact checkers’ and ‘spinmeisters?’” 

I ask but would never expect them to answer either question.  However, based on the consistent inconsistency they project, I believe the answer to the first is NO and the second YES.  Why would they think otherwise of us (the voting public) based on our consistency in electing and reelecting those advancing their agenda and rhetoric?  If we consistently go against reason and logic and allow them to hold the reins of the government, why would they think us informed? 

I had a politician tell me, “You are not informed enough to understand what is happening in Washington, so just leave it to those of us who are.”  I had questioned his logic and reasoning for advancing a bill that was contrary to the clear reading of the Constitution and similar causes had proven counter-productive for America.  For that political elitist, I was ignorant and unlearned and needed to grovel at his feet and appreciate any morsel he and his cronies threw my way. 

COVID-19 has been with us so long that one would think we would have a handle on this by now and have moved to the next crisis leaving this one in the rearview mirror.  One would think, but it appears that the real objective of this crisis or pandemic has not been achieved.  If the political ruling class deems it possible to achieve more control and dominion through this virus, I believe it will remain at the forefront of government actions until they have squeezed every drop of political benefit (for their cause) from it.

I want to address something that is anything but new but keeps finding its way to the surface regarding the consistent inconsistencies of COVID-19 and the mandates, etc.  I realize that anytime I write something like this, I have those on both sides of the equation zeroing their sniper scopes on me.  I become anathema and persona non grata.  I become, to them, a naysayer, a fear-monger, a conspiracist, a bad Christian, and many other labels. 

After all, in President Joe Biden’s mind, he believes that if everyone in the world was vaccinated inflation would become non-existent.  I would love to watch him attempt to answer how, but his handlers would never let that transpire.  It would solve the global warming or climate something, issues as well.  It would seem that this is the new magic pill or elixir and only those who do not love humanity (their view) would question them. 

One Consistent Inconsistency I want to address is regarding the survival rate of COVID-19.  Please do not think that I am making this a nothing burger.  People have died (how many, we will never know) from this virus.  It has taken people I know and love.  Most of them had underlying health issues that brought about death when coupled with COVID.  Regardless, COVID was a contributor if not the cause of their deaths.  That makes it a very serious and dangerous matter. 

I have been studying, as best I can, with the Gestapo-type censorship regarding information about COVID’s survival rate and other medical information on this issue.  The Coronavirus is a difficult subject for non-medical people and people outside the government’s inner circles.  We are limited to the amount of information we are privy to and even when we can find some documentation it is often skewed one way or the other leaving us with inadequate platforms from which to build our arguments or answer our questions.

The hatred from former president Donald Trump and the desire to advance a vaccine with limited testing seemed to make any possible medical treatment that would enhance the survivability of the virus taboo.  Fox News insisted that some of the treatments would kill people and stepped up to the microphone like the long line of talking heads in public media decrying anything that was not approved and endorsed by the CDC and the government medical experts. 

From the beginning, we were told that the survivability of this virus was incredibly high for most people.  It was higher, according to most reports than the seasonal flu that we face every year.  One of the drugs listed as offering hope was ‘ivermectin’.  That was provided it was given early enough to make a difference and before the person was overcome by pneumonia which is frequently the killer.

I listened to an hour-long testimony before the Texas Senate from a doctor in Dallas that called out the CDC and the entire medical community as being guilty of medical malpractice.  Why would he make such a charge?  The reason was, in his practice and research he had documentation that if people were treated at the outset of symptoms with ‘ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, and other drugs’ early the survivability increased exponentially.  He argued that we could have saved thousands and hundreds of thousands of lives had we acted rather than waited until hospitalization was required. 

The past eighteen months have produced a mountain of information that if one can and will wade through the fodder to get to the grain, is stunning and reveals inconsistencies that shock me.  We have hard data from a Stanford professor and surprisingly the CDC that must not be overlooked or allowed to slip through the cracks. 

Virtually everyone agrees that the most vulnerable sector of society is the very elderly.  That group must also include people with co-morbidities, and the obese are much more vulnerable than the young and otherwise healthy.  The Stanford professor of which I speak is Dr. John Ioannidis, “Professor of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research), of Epidemiology and Population Health.”  Also, we have data from the government’s own Statistics and Biomedical Data Science Center, regarding the actual ‘infection fatality rates’ for COVID.  Dr. Ioannidis using all the information available concluded that, around the world, more than half a billion people have already been infected with COVID. 

I don’t want to make this the size of a novel but would like to boil it down to a few simple facts and comments and ask you to decide for yourself what the truth is and what you need to do.

COVID does not attack all people equally.  How can we overlook Governor Cuomo’s decimation of the elderly in his state?  The warehousing of COVID-infected people in nursing homes was deadly beyond imagination.  That kind of action caused Dr. Ioannidis and others to investigate age-related survival rates.  Some of those numbers caused me to gasp as I realized that if this information were publicized the madness of this panic would come to a screeching halt and we would move toward sane recovery.  I realized that it had to be about something other than the health and survivability of the populace.

Here is the inconsistency that floored me and caused me to say, “Something is rotten in Denmark.”  The CDC strongly recommends ‘ivermectin’ for third-world refugees heading for America, but not American citizens.  Why?  If ivermectin is a killer rather than a healer, why would they recommend it to those people?  If it is as evil and ineffective as the Left and CDC claim, then why did it win a Nobel Prize?

The bottom line for most people, not all people, is that if you contract the virus you are statistically unlikely to die from it, and if you receive early treatment your chances of succumbing decrease even more.  No wonder the doctor from Dallas would declare before the Texas Senate that failure to provide early treatment amounted to medical malpractice.

As in every potential virus or pandemic, common sense and good hygiene are absolutely essential.  If you believe the vaccine is the route for you, then by all means take that route.  If you believe it is not, then you should not be castigated for opting for that course of action.  As a Christian, my first confidence is in God.  I also believe that it is incumbent upon me to use common sense, exercise good hygiene, and have a plan for early treatment.  Think about others not just yourself and if you have been exposed please do not expose others knowingly. 

I believe that a major part of what has been happening in the misinformation, disinformation, and lack of information creates a platform of fear where those seeking control have a ready pathway to achieve their tyrannical objectives.  I pray for everyone that none of us contract this awful virus.  I pray that we also refuse to relinquish our freedoms out of fear.

God bless you and God bless America!

BUYER’S REMORSE IN AMERICA?


Many of us, have at some point in our lives, experienced Buyer’s Remorse.  We thought we wanted it.  We had to have it.  We bought the sales pitch and took the bait.  Then, we slept on our purchase and that nagging feeling of remorse overwhelmed us.  In some cases, we are able to revoke the sale, if remorse sets in within the legal timeframe we could opt out of the purchase.  Sadly, that is not the case in every situation, and I am heartened and disheartened to see polls and hear from pundits that millions of Americans are experiencing Buyer’s Remorse in their vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. 

The sad reality is that due to many factors, we cannot just say, “Time Out.  I want to take back my vote.”  The system of government won’t allow that.  The Congress and the Courts would not allow that to transpire.  Even if we effectively used the Impeachment process and evicted both of them from the White House, we would be left with Queen Nancy Pelosi as third in line in the chain of command.  That would possibly be even worse!

I saw a Zogby Poll that indicated that one in five Biden voters said they regret voting for him.  Using “I told you so” won’t do them or me any good.  Unfortunately, it is not just those who voted for him that will endure the devastation and destruction.  All of us, every hardworking, tax-paying, freedom-loving American along with the lower echelon of the Leftist Progressive Radicals will pay the price. 

The rabid players for totalitarianism on the Left and those who are more middle-of-the-road voters are finding themselves repeatedly at odds.  One group realizes that the pathway of the Squad and the radical Leftists will totally destroy America for everyone and are resisting marginally.  History indicates that this resistance by the Democrats who want a more moderate approach will fade into the shadows when push comes to shove, and they will vote with and support the Party Platform.  Lunacy, but that is the history of the modern Democrats.

Interestingly, the poll was taken before Kabul, Afghanistan was conquered by the Taliban and their jihadist cohorts.  It was taken before that debacle in which we lost American lives (13 U.S. service members) and many more were injured.  It was taken before we left Americans and allies behind the wall of terror with little hope of escaping.  It was before the State Department provided the Taliban with a hit list of those we want to extract. 

I am unable to comprehend how 76% of those who admit voting for Biden said they had no regret in casting their vote for America’s destroyer.  The poll indicated that only 4% were unsure.  How can that be?  Are there really that many voters in America who hate this country and are oblivious to history and facts?  The answer is yes, and it is largely the result of two-three generations of leftist education in our public schools and institutions of higher learning. 

We have watched the rise of the Cancel Culture, the Politically Correct Mandates, the Gender nullification, and the rise in bias against a segment of society.  If you are of the Caucasian persuasion and are non-liberal, you are their mortal enemy.  If you are male and non-liberal, you are the problem in America.  If you are a parent who wants a say in the education and lives of your children, you are a domestic terrorist and targeted by the Department of Justice.  Is this really America? 

Some other interesting revelations in that poll were that voters 18-29 (29 percent) and 30-49 (30 percent) were more likely to regret their vote than the 50-64 (10 percent) and 65 plus (6 percent) age groups.  Further extrapolation and examination revealed that Republicans who voted for Biden (if there truly is such a creature) regret their vote more than registered Democrats and Independents.  Those regretting their vote:  Republicans 29%, Democrats 21%, and Independents 14%. 

This poll revealed that urban voters were about twice as likely to regret their vote as their suburban and rural counterparts.  This poll questioned an online sample of 2,173 voters and was conducted over 8 days.  The margin of error is 1.5% meaning that the one in five is likely very accurate.

The amazing revelation in the poll is that even with 76% happy with their vote or without regret only 43% gave President Joe Biden a favorable rating.  The Independent voters gave him a 36% favorable rating and that is down from the last poll taken. 

Biden’s poll numbers continue to tank and as time passes more and more Americans will regret the error made in November 2020.  Sadly, that will make almost no difference in the outcome or extent of destruction done to our Republic in his time in office.  Our only hope is to massively turn on in 2022 and 2024 and reclaim all elected branches of government.  Unfortunately, if normal history is an indicator, so much unrepairable damage will have been done, we may not survive.

I am not concerned with your like or dislike for Donald Trump but his term in office saw the repeal of many of the destructive policies of the Obama administration.  Will we elect another president with the determination and ability to get things done even in the face of opposition from both sides of the political aisle?  I don’t know.  Trump may run again and may win again but if he does not run do, we have a man or woman that can pick up the gauntlet and lay their lives on the line for America with total fearlessness? 

My recommendation and request are that all who believe in God, follow the Christian faith, fall on their faces before our Heavenly Father and intercede for America.  I am not asking that you pray Republican or Democrat but that you pray for America.  I ask that you pray for an outpouring of God’s Spirit and a revival, restoration, or renewal.  I ask that you pray for America to return to her founding principles and return to a recognition of God and the vital moral principles of the Bible that shaped our government and laws.

Next, I ask that you become involved in whatever way you can and are comfortable.  If you are one who can articulate the values of the Bible, the Family, Conservatism, Constitutionalism, and America then maybe you should become a spokesperson for a candidate.  Maybe you should consider throwing your hat in the ring and becoming a candidate.  We take this back from the bottom up not from the top down.  If America is worth saving to you, it is imperative that you become involved!

God bless you and God bless America!

I RISK BEING DRAWN AND QUARTERED IN THIS OPINION POST…


I do not enjoy being out on the ledge standing on the precipice of violent persecution, but sometimes I feel that it is necessary to take the risk hoping to cause people to think.  I am not posting this to defend against being vaccinated or unvaccinated.  I continue to believe that our American Constitution and our Creator afford us certain inalienable rights and one of those is choice.  Choices have consequences and some choices bring benefit and blessing and others deficiency and pain.  Yet, we all have and make choices daily.

I want to highlight a few thoughts.  I realize that most people have already made up their minds one way or the other and many reflect the proverbial statement, “My minds made up, don’t confuse me with the facts.”  I can only offer an opinion, citing statements by those who are involved in the COVID business on a frontline basis.  I take their statements to heart and if they have offered documentation and scientific data, I ponder them and couple them with the information previously acquired.  In some ways, I am still undecided.

What am I to think when some high-level European scientists advise their governments to cease mass vaccinations?  They have recommended that due to the variants such as the delta variant it is impossible to achieve herd immunity via the vaccine approach.  They have suggested allowing the virus to circulate throughout the population, with precautions taking for the most vulnerable.  They do not believe the postulation of Western movers and shakers that mass vaccination will end COVID-19.  That causes me to think, ponder, and even question.

In remarks to the committee, University of East Anglia professor of medicine Paul Hunter, an infectious-disease expert, concurred that vaccination would not bring about the anticipated herd immunity.  He said, “We need to start moving away from just reporting infections, or just reporting positive cases admitted to hospital, to actually start reporting the number of people who are ill because of Covid.”  Dr. Hunter, who also advises the World Health Organization on the virus continued, “Otherwise we are going to be frightening ourselves with very high numbers that actually don’t translate into disease burden.”  That makes me stop and think and ask questions within my heart.

Dr. Fauci went on CBS’s Face the Nation and claimed that viral load meant the vaccinated were spreading COVID at the same rate as the non-vaccinated.  The moderator, John Dickerson queried the good doctor Fauci as to what new information they had that lead him to this conclusion.  He dodged the question numerous times but finally said, “When you look at the level of virus in the nasal pharynx of people who are vaccinated who get breakthrough infections, it’s really quite high and equivalent to the level of virus in the nasal pharynx of unvaccinated people who get infected.”  That makes one scratch his or her head and wonder.

The moderator pressed further and questioned Israel’s director of Public Health Services, Dr. Sharon Alroy-Preis on what they were seeing regarding the vaccinated and non-vaccinated and she suggested the exact opposite of Dr. Fauci.  Who are we to believe?  Her explanation rendered the spread by the vaccinated to at most 50% of the unvaccinated and at best 10%.  Again, who are we to believe?

Both suggested that the vaccinated were not immune from COVID and could spread COVID but she argued that the vaccinated could be contagious for a much shorter period and would have much milder symptoms.  If there are no, long, or short-term side effects and negatives connected to the vaccines (something there is no solid answer for at this juncture) then vaccines appear to make sense.  But if you are vaccinated and still must succumb to masking and isolation, how is that a solution?

We have had so many conflicting directives handed down as we come to a year and one-half of this pandemic.  We were told not to wear masks, then wear masks, then wear two masks, the no masks indoors, now we are back to masking indoors and outdoors.  Who are we to believe?

The same experts told us that the vaccines were safe and effective and provided the necessary pathway out of this horror movie.  We were told that if vaccinated a mask was no longer necessary and then two months later that was reversed.  Many have and are asking, “Do vaccines actually work?”  This may irritate some, but it seems the answer depends on what day and to whom you are talking. 

Some contend that the COVID vaccine is not a true vaccine based on the definition of vaccines.  It does not contain the attenuated virus, it is a strand of messenger RNA, based on genetic code provided by China and serving as the basis for these novel vaccines.  First, the code provided by China where the virus began can be hopeful or horrifying depending on your worldview and level of trust in the Chinese government.

When asked how long the immunity lasts for the vaccinated, we are told, “we do not know.”  That is more than a little disconcerting for me.  You may be totally fine with ambiguity, but I continue to search for scientifically substantiated data that gives me confidence in the government’s edicts. 

The mRNA vaccines are a new technology and that does not mean it will or won’t work nor makes it good or bad.  It is new!  Some scientists have contended that it requires a significant leap of faith to assume the genetic code received from China is accurate and doesn’t contain any malicious bits.  How much do we trust China or other countries that are openly adversarial?

The argument is valid that the virus peaked in the United States in early January before anyone was fully vaccinated.  Yes, there are now variants that are causing a resurgence of the virus, but has the vaccine prevented that?  It does not appear so. 

Again, I am filled with questions and I’m sure some arm-chair scientists who are on one side of the issue or the other will lambast me with their pseudo-scientific or religious positions.  I am simply suggesting that there may be more questions than answers and it is necessary that each of us on an individual and family basis make our choices.  If you do that is your decision and if you do not that is your decision.  Based on what I am seeing and hearing, it does not appear that there is any consensus among the scientific and medical communities that absolutely lay this question to vaxx or not to rest.

I will offer this picture regarding the varying size of airborne particulates for Influenza, SARS, and Coronavirus for your perusal.  The Influenza particulates measure from 0.08-0.12 micrometers.  The SARS virus measure from 0.08-0.09 micrometers. The Coronavirus measures 0.1 micrometers.  The pore size of cloth masks range, from 80-500 micrometers. The efficiency is proven to drop by 20% after 4 wash and dry cycles, stretching the surface and making it more porous.

It has been determined that it would require an N100 mask to effectively filter our particles of 0.3 microns and there are few of those around and they are terribly expensive. The N95 mask filters out approximately 95% but not 100% therefore, while it appears helpful it is not a foolproof way of protecting yourself or other people.

I believe that the best preventative is good hygiene and selective self-isolation when experiencing possible symptoms, which largely does not happen.  Some are very attentive to the necessary aspect of personal hygiene but even those are not absolute in their actions.  Self-isolation or quarantine when questionable would help but many insist, it is just a cold or hay fever, etc.  Yet, in this day, a little extra precaution might be prudent and considerate. 

I would not attempt to tell anyone to take the vaccine or not take it.  I do not have sufficient information and do not believe anyone does at this point to be 100% certain of the best course of action.  However, if you have a compromised immune system or a family member battling cancer or some other life-threatening disease, you must make your decision based on the information before you and what your heart tells you.  I wish that we would stop vilifying each other and allow room for everyone to make their own, hopefully, informed decision.  I believe that the only course of action for me as a believer is to prayerfully listen to my conscience the inner voice of the Holy Spirit, do the best research I can and then take a position.

God bless you and God bless America!

THE SKY IS FALLING…


It does not seem to matter if it is a right-leaning or left-leaning media outlet, they all have the same message – Hysteria, Paranoia, and The Sky Is Falling!  I have never been so inundated with conspiracy theories in my 74 years on the planet.  I see them from those on the Left and the Right.  I see the theories among Christians and non-Christians.  I see them coming from Conservatives and Liberals.  I see them being espoused by Capitalists and Socialists.  There seem to be as many theories as there are people.  I know that is an exaggeration, but with the blowing of my email and phone, that’s how it looks to me.

I am a believer in God.  I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.  I believe that the Bible is ‘God-given’ and therefore the only valid rule for guidance in life and faith and practice.  I believe in the Republic created by our Founders and the Framers of the American Constitution in 1776 and 1789.  I believe in the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and am pro-limited government.  I am a Vietnam veteran having served in-country in 1967.  I am an American by birth a patriot by choice, and a Christian by the new birth.  That’s who I am!

Over the past decade or more, I have watched, often totally flabbergasted by what has happened in the political, social, and religious worlds.  When I gave my life to Christ, after returning from Vietnam in the late 1960s I would have never believed we would see what we are seeing.  I guess that speaks to my naivety and lack of prophetic insight, at that time.  I was raised by God-fearing, hard-working, parents who loved God, America, and believed that you only deserved what you earned in life.  That is foreign to much of today’s society.

I do not believe we are in another of the many political cycles we have endured where the Democrats control for a time, then the Republicans.  I believe we are in a war for the survival of the Republic.  I believe that God allowed us a small window of opportunity to allow us to get our house in order, and in a measure, we failed to take advantage of that time.  We looked at personalities rather than policies and insisted that we were standing on principle in allowing what happened to happen.  I believe that is an errant view. 

How can I call it principle to detest a man because of his personality, societal misgivings, and maybe even business flaws, but support a man who has many if not all the same flaws?  How can I seek the defeat of a personality by embracing a Party Platform that endorses and advances abortion, homosexuality, transgenderism, stripping people of their inalienable and individual rights of property, speech, religion, and self-defense and call that principle?  If I manipulate scripture to say what I desire so that I can persist in my detest of a personality, I lower myself to the same level as that which I say I am against.  I either stand with God and what is right, or I stand with or allow that which is against God and morally, socially, ethically, and politically wrong. 

We watched as a real virus was used to create an international mindset that the Sky is Falling.  We opened the door for tyrants and tyranny to seize power and once the tyrannical seize power they never willingly relinquish it.  We continue to place ourselves at the mercy of those in elected or appointive positions claiming they are following science and the experts.  Sadly, the science and experts are anything but unified in their opinions leaving us to wonder. 

We hear from the experts, politicians, and media propagandist that if we do not follow the edicts, force whites to denounce their whiteness, abandon our core religious convictions to accommodate those who choose a lifestyle in conflict with those believes we make life unlivable on planet earth.  We have watched the masses, mostly honest citizens living in paranoia and fear, become rabid in their demands for compliance to the edicts of the experts regarding COVID. 

The Sky is Falling, the Sky is Falling!  I know Chicken Little is around here somewhere.  I guess she or he is with the Unicorns and the Flying Pigs searching for the fictional Utopia we are told will be a reality if we simply become followers of the toxic brand of liberalism and political correctness offered by the Leftists and Activists. 

We watched the Republicans do more damage than the Democrats regarding the efforts of the previous president.  Now we see the result of tossing aside by hook or crook a personality deemed distasteful for a milder character of no less questionable moral fiber.  Having served in Vietnam and watching the abandonment of the South and our allies, I was horrified to see history repeating itself under Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.  I did not say that withdrawing was wrong but the handling of it was a demonstration of incredible ignorance and weakness.  Now we will face the Chinese in their pursuit of nations in their region.  Will we resist?  Not likely.

When the Chinese, the Russians, the Iranians, and other despotic regimes rattle their sabers will we demonstrate sufficient resolve and strength to deter them?  When that happens the cries of a Falling Sky and the End of the World will crescendo to the point it will be deafening.  We could have avoided this disaster, but we allowed the nefarious diabolical actors on the political stage in America to seize the script and determine the final act of the play.  If the Sky is Falling, we created the condition for it to fall.

America, if we are going to remain the Free Constitutional Republic and operate under the System of Government, we have enjoyed we have some serious choices and decisions to make.   The passive and weak-willed will not be able to endure the required commitments.  Only those totally committed to Liberty will find within their heart of hearts the resolve to make a like commitment as those in 1776.  Only those who believe in Freedom will make the choice to Live Free or Die Trying!

If we are to survive and see a change in the conditions in America, we cannot do it politically, judicially, or legislatively.  The Kingdom of God within the heart of the believer is salt and light and a change agent.  Nothing remains the same when the Kingdom of God is present.  We are supposed to be agents of change and influence rather than those who endure the changes made by the politically powerful.  If we want different politicians, we must become different people, and only through a total commitment to God and a willingness to lay our lives on the line for Him and His Kingdom will bring about the condition conducive for this change. 

If we will take God at His word and do what the Bible teaches rather than teach what it teaches with no corresponding action, we will see change!  I believe that when any believer becomes so full of God that God oozes from them in every facet of life will impact positively his community, then his city, then his state, and then his nation.  I used (his) generically as people, not gender.  If you want to see God’s Kingdom Come and His Will Done on Earth as it is in Heaven, then join those of us who are willing to die for Him and Freedom!

ARE YOU SERIOUS?  Don’t Confuse Me with the Facts…


The current narrative and debate being engaged in by the followers of toxic liberalism embodying the modern Democrats have seemingly determined their version of truth trumps freedom.  We are the Free Constitutional Republic and as a Republic, we have freedoms that have been sacred since 1776.  The modern Leftists do not believe those freedoms take precedent over their definition of truth.  For many on that side of the political equation, it is comply or die. 

I guess the saying, “Truth is in the eye of the beholder or the mind of the beholder” is applicable in today’s politics.  When the mainstream media that is extremely biased and prejudiced in favor of the Left can predetermine what is true before the facts are in, we are doomed to conflict if not confinement.

The modern censors led by the Left deem it dangerous for the public to have access to any truth or information that does not meet their definition of truth.  This has escalated with the arrival of the unseen COVID-19 virus where the Left decided that it did not originate in a Laboratory in Wuhan China.  Therefore, anyone disagreeing or offering conflicting data was immediately silenced and branded as a kook or a rabid conspiracist.            

The Fact Checkers and Truth Police of the Left have determined that anything that does not meet their definition of truth to be untruth and worthy of banishment.  There are so many things that need open debate but are doomed to suffer censorship.  One of those is the Critical Race Theory (CRT).  If a person contends, “I treat everyone the same” they are deemed to be guilty of failing to understand that race defines relationship. Therefore, the person who declares they treat everyone the same is guilty of racism and spreading untruth.

The Left has defined racism to be whatever they choose and virtually made everything racist.  Someone said, “When everything is racist, nothing is.”  I acknowledge that prior to the second half of the 20th-century racism was and a real problem in America.  There was significant evidence of progress until the Left hijacked the movement.  It was a matter of “never letting a good crisis go to waste.”

As the Left hijacked the civil rights movement and the matter of race relations, we saw the rise of a new industry or pursuit – Diversity.  When a society learns to embrace its differences, we grow.  It is as we observe, recognize, and allow diversity to exist we grow as a society.  In the 1990s this began to make strides toward a positive outcome, but the Left decided that there could be no diversity in political thought.

America was once seen as a melting pot where people of varying ethnicities, nationalities, and cultural backgrounds were assimilated into becoming American, not hyphenated Americans.  That is no longer acceptable.  We are facilitating and even forcing segregation of cultural communities and abandoned the idea of assimilation.  If that continues, we will lose the Republic.  We will lose all hope that our citizens will be Americans.  Many will value their former culture and nation more than America.  We became strong because we expected people to become one or assimilate into the culture of America. 

We are being forced to endure things like the 1619 project where the contention is that the true founding of America was not 1776 but 1619 when slaves were first brought to our shores.  The heart of that project is to teach that America was founded on the evils of slavery and not on the ideals of equality as is declared in our Declaration of Independence.  I remind everyone that according to the Bible there are two genders, male and female.  I also contend that the Bible teaches two ethnicities, saved, and lost, and thereby one race because we all come from Adam who was created by God from the dust of the ground.

When everything is racist, it diminishes the true incidences of racism.  The idea, which I have been informed, is that only those light-skinned are racist and must live in a continual state of atonement and apology.  The fallacious idea is that if you are white you experienced white privilege.  I don’t know about others, but my skin tone did not enable me to achieve anything I have achieved.  Faith in God, hard work, willingness to take a risk, and good fortune enabled me to have what I have and experience what I have experienced.

It seems that segregation, once deemed evil and harmful, is not good and desirable in some instances.  Ignoring history does not change history but opens the door for a society or generation to repeat the failures of the past and not have the benefit of the success. 

It almost seems that a new religion has been created so the followers of the politically correct and perpetually offended can worship and express their ideologies.  Something that happened in major league baseball not too long ago is evidence of what I am suggesting. 

During a Colorado Rockies baseball game, there was an uproar over the claim that a fan yelled out a racial epithet while a black player was at the plate.  After that was investigated further it was determined that the fan was yelling “Dinger” the name of the mascot.  The media refused to correct the error of reporting.  Yet, this individual was yelling so loudly and for such a long period of time, one would think someone would confirm the charge.  Rather than confirming a racist action not one soul heard a racist statement.

The player, at-bat, Lewis Brinson, said that even after the charges against the fan proved to be false, he still kept hearing the N-word in his head.  He said, “So I watched the video at least 50 times in the past 15-16 hours.  I watched it a lot, especially when I heard that he said Dinger instead of the N-word.”  He insisted that when he listens, he hears the N-word even though everyone around the fan insists it was Dinger.  It is an example of don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind’s made up.

I have learned through study and talking to psychologists that the mind has a way of telling you what you tell it to hear.  If you want an incident to be racist, then you will hear racism regardless of the factual document evidence.  That is so true in so many areas of life. 

If we are going to predetermine what the truth is before we have the factual evidence, we will never achieve peace in our society.  We will continue down the road to destruction and discord.  We can overcome, but we must never rush to judgment.  I find that there are many on the Left and on the Right who knee-jerk and immediately conclude that what they hoped was said or done was said or done.  STOP IT!

God bless you and God bless America!

EMBOLDENED, The Left Is Engaging in An All-Out Assault on the Constitution…


If you had told me thirty years ago that we would be witnessing a political party engaging in an all-out assault on the constitution, I would have disbelieved it possible.  I was naïve enough to believe that such an overwhelming majority of Americans valued the constitution and our liberties and freedoms enough to deter the political elitists from such an effort.  I was wrong and that causes me great concern and trepidation.

The current president is not the first to violate his oath of office, but he may be the first to openly brag about it.  I don’t know if that is because of his lack of mental acuity, dementia, or the embodiment of corruption to the point there is no fear of reprisal.  I want to address some issues that make me say that and we may disagree on those issues.  Our agreement in principle or percept is not my point, his actions are.  The oath of office is more than of minor importance to me and should be to everyone.

He announced, a few weeks ago, his new ‘eviction moratorium’ and as he did, he acknowledged that the “bulk of constitutional scholars” would say that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention eviction moratorium is “not likely to pass constitutional muster.”  What?  Mr. Biden, you know what you are doing violates the constitution and yet you are doing it anyway!   That means you value your oath of office about as much as a loaf of stale bread.

His declaration that it was not likely to pass muster had already been proven.  The Supreme Court had already agreed that the CDC “exceeded its existing statutory authority.”  Biden and the Left do not care about the constitution, they care about appeasing their rabid base and holding Americans hostage to their draconian edicts.  They are not proponents of the Free Market but a controlled market in which they line their pockets and the rest of us flounder around trying to make ends meet.

He suggested that thumbing his nose at the constitution and the rule of law allows his administration more time to act on rental assistance.  But if he does it one time, what is to prevent him from doing it multiple times?  What is to prevent him from ignoring every decision of the SCOTUS or our existing laws?  What is to prevent him from acting as a literal dictator? 

I suppose they interpret the Constitution, Article 2, Section 5 to mean that the president can make laws irrespective of any Supreme Court ruling as long as he crosses his heart and promises it is only going to be temporary.  That is either incredibly naïve or dangerously diabolical and speaks volumes of what they think of the rule of law, the constitution, or the American public.

The Squad of malcontents arguably being led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lauded the action.  She proclaimed it was a “huge victory for the power of direct action and not taking no for an answer.”  Ma’am, if you understood the law, the constitution, and our system of government you would understand that in this matter sometimes you have to take no for an answer.  In fact, in life, there are many times when you must take no for an answer. 

Lawlessness in the name of ‘direct action’ is still lawlessness.  They want to defund the police, censor the public, hamstring religious leaders, and undermine our faith in federalism and counter-majoritarian institutions.  The declaration the Left loves to use when it is targeting a Republican President or a Conservative at any level is deemed inappropriate when it applies to them.  That declaration – “No One Is Above the Law.” 

The Biden assault on the constitution in his 19-page order is laced with many draconian penalties and fines including potential jail time for landlords who ignore his order.  In his order, he is effectively ripping to shreds millions of legal contracts and suspending the property rights of 90% of the landlords.  If they can do that, what is off the table?  NOTHING!  Property rights are an integral part of the constitution but if you believe yourself and your party to be operating with a divine right, you believe you can do anything, and it all belongs to you.  IT DOES NOT!

I am concerned that there will be a New America in the not-too-distant future.  I am concerned that America will be the result of a revolt that could be an armed rebellion against the unconstitutional takeover of our government by the Left.  I believe that the American people are being pushed to the limit due to actions such as the Biden assault on the constitution and the nefarious use of COVID-19 to impose their draconian edicts on the public.  At some point, people will have had enough or will surrender and cower like sheep waiting for the slaughter.

The Left has no intention of allowing the pandemic to end.  It will be extended, modified, and expanded.  The manipulation of data and the imposition of mandates that run counter to common sense and threaten the lives and livelihood of citizens is taking their toll on the minds of millions.  The proposed future lockdowns, some of which we are seeing, screams that this pandemic is a political tool that will not go away without a revolt.

In a time when American cities are reeling from an escalation in crime, the political elitists are advancing their agenda of cancel culture, revisionism, defunding the police, censoring conservatives, and silencing religious voices.  Our borders are more porous than a sieve and this administration is allowing unvetted, unvaccinated, untested, illegals to flood into our country then bussing them to cities in the South.  Why?  Why the demand that Americans be vaccinated and locked down, but the illegals are given a free pass?  The answer my friend is blowing in the wind and the handwriting is on the wall.

In today’s culture if you fear and speak out about rising crime you are deemed to be a white supremacist and a racist.  If the Democrats and the Political Elitists truly cared about crime and America, they would secure the border, debunk the defund the police mantra and take swift action against the looting, rioting, violence, and crime in our cities.  Instead, they make the criminal a form of a modern-day Rosa Parks and heroes expressing their demand for equity.

I will conclude with a warning.  Antonio Gramsci authored his famous treatise while in prison in Italy under Mussolini.  His ‘Prison Notebooks’ offer an explanation for why the proletariat revolution failed in the West and laid out a new roadmap for revolutionary success in the future.  His thesis is called ‘cultural hegemony.’ 

Cultural hegemony wrapped in a tight package is that cultural values and consciousness emanate and are reinforced by societal institutions.  Businesses, media, religion, courts of law – all institutions controlled by the patriotic bourgeoisie prevent the underclass and exploited people from ever learning of their oppression.  He argued that the task was for the radical to seize control of the institutions in order to propagate the revolutionary ideology.  That became a reality in the 1960s with the student radicals influenced by Gramsci and who are now the professors, and heads of many of our American institutions.  The stage is set, and we are seeing the fruit of their decades of planting and planning.  This is not spontaneous.

If America does not toss these ravenous zombies out, we have no hope of reviving or recovering our America as the Free Constitutional Republic.  The rule of law, the constitution, and moral sanity must prevail.  It will be a war and if those who value faith in God, conservativism, the constitution, and Republicanism do not commit themselves as did the founding fathers in 1776 we will lose the republic.

I am convinced the Left would rather see our cities burned to the ground and looted than advance our Republican system of government.  A system they insist is a system of white systematic racism and oppression.  They do not support law and order but the American people, I believe, do.  The question remains, will we allow the Leftists to retain control, or will we oust them?  Will we be able to make the necessary change at the ballot box or will we be forced into a 1776 type rebellion and resistance?  I pray that we, through prayer, commitment to God and moral rightness, and dedication to the constitution and the rule of law can reclaim America.

God bless you and God bless America.  The price of Freedom may be our lives!

NO ONE LEFT BEHIND…


It would seem that commitment is no longer an American value according to the actions of this White House and those in charge of various functions of government and the senior brass of our Armed Forces.  I am cautious about branding the military brass with this ideological stance for they are supposed to follow orders.  Well, lawful orders and, I guess that in their minds, this order was lawful.  I question it but, I am not senior brass in the military, just a Vietnam veteran, a patriot, a concerned citizen, and a Christian.  But question it, I do!

I agree with former CIA analyst Matt Zeller that the president engaged in presenting a false narrative about the evacuation.  President Biden insisted that we had planned for every contingency.  That is so blatantly false that I cannot believe his handlers would put that on his teleprompter for him to read.  But it would seem that we, the American citizens, are deemed too dense that we would believe whatever we are told.  If it were not for the many that seem to do just that, I would think that rather foolish on their part.  But alas that is an inescapable reality in today’s America.

Some of those with boots on the ground, inside Afghanistan in Kabul have informed all who would listen that the Taliban has been going door to door making a list of everyone who used to work with the United States.  They need not do that for our illustrious leader has provided them a list, supposedly with an agreement to gain safe passage for those individuals.  The history of that group of people suggests that the only passage those people will get is to the next life.

Mr. Zeller declared that the Taliban are the modern version of the Nazis.  He also stated that he voted for Biden and was happy when he took office and now has remorse over the blatant lies being told and the actions taken in Afghanistan.  It is documented that this administration not only left people behind but valuable weapons and technology.  Those actions can do nothing but embolden our enemies and dishearten our friends. 

I don’t care if you are a liberal or a conservative, a Republican or a Democrat, Independent, Libertarian what took place and what it could mean should trouble you.  If you can honestly say that the evacuation was a roaring success, then I question whether you are paying attention.  I don’t mean to be offensive, but the way this went down has breathed life into ISIS and has emboldened our enemies worldwide and make another 9/11 or worse a very real possibility.

Former U.S. Army Green Beret and CIA liaison officer Jerry Torres believes the cutting-edge weapons we left behind have not only emboldened our enemies but equipped them beyond their wildest hopes.  The botched evacuation not only left Americans in harm’s way but endangered hundreds of thousands of Afghanis as well.  Torres insists that we have American citizens or SIV (Special Immigrant Visa) holders scattered all over the country and in areas our government is paying no attention to.  However, the Taliban and ISIS are. 

The sad reality is that the Taliban is allowing the Chinese to inspect our weaponry left behind.  Isn’t that just peachy?  One of our most formidable adversaries in the 21st century, China is now combing through what we left behind seeking any technological advantage and insight into our capabilities.  How is that for success?  The equipment is one thing but the code, the computer programming code in that stuff is beyond alarming, it is almost as though this administration wanted to disadvantage our military in future conflicts. 

The Taliban utilized much of the weaponry left behind to fight the Panjshir province, the last stronghold of resistance.  Over 64,000 machine guns, 350,000 assault rifles, and 126,000 pistols were left for the taking.  That violates every sentiment and position America has held since her inception as the Free Republic she was founded to be. 

A list that I have seen, but cannot fully vet is highly disturbing and, in my mind, borders on treason by the president or whoever ordered the abandoning of those weapons.  Let me quickly give you the list:

· 2,000 Armored Vehicles Including Humvees and MRAPs

· 75,989 Total Vehicles: FMTV, M35, Ford Rangers, Ford F350, Ford Vans, Toyota Pickups, Armored Security Vehicles, etc.

· 45 UH-60 Blackhawk Helicopters

· 50 MD530G Scout Attack Helicopters

· ScanEagle Military Drones

· 30 Military Version Cessnas

· 4 C-130s

· 29 Brazilian made A-29 Super Tucano Ground Attack Aircraft

· Heavy Equipment, Including Bull Dozers, Backhoes, Dump Trucks, Excavators

Not a bad haul for our enemy but that was not the end of the list.  It appears that we left behind at last 600,000 small arms, M16, M249, SAWs, M24 Sniper Systems, 50 calibers, 1,394 M203 Grenade Launchers, M134 mini guns, 200 mm Gatling Guns and Ammunition.  Yet, that is not the total list, we also gave them encrypted cell phones, Air to Ground Rockets, night vision goggles, thermal scopes and goggles, body armor, U.S. Military HIIDE, for Handheld Interagency Identity Detection Equipment Biometrics, and millions of rounds of ammo.  We made them one of the most highly equipped forces in the Middle East.  Nice move Mr. President.  America was certainly not first in your mind!

The Marines, and I salute them have a motto that most of the branches believe in, “No One Left Behind.”  If you saw the movie, Lone Survivor, you remember that a small US Navy Seal team went on a mission to capture a Taliban leader responsible for the death of more than 20 US Marines, as Afghan villagers.  The entire team, save one, was killed, in addition to 16 rescuers shot down by Taliban forces.  That kind of heroism and commitment was lacking in the evacuation of Afghanistan by the Biden Team.

The Marines have another motto that we should all hold, “Do Not Quit, No Matter the Cost of not Quitting!”  It may not be rational to lose an entire unit to bring back a dead comrade in arms, although I applaud the intent.  But to quit is not the American Spirit of 1776 or we would still be under British rule. 

History records three known Marine combat unit surrenders, Guam, and Wake Island in December 1941, and Corregidor in May 1942.  In all three cases it is reported that in all three cases, higher ranking non-Marine officers ordered the Marines to surrender.  It is also reported that at Wake Island, Marines wept when they laid down their arms because they believed they should fight until no one was left standing.  To that, I say Semper Fi Marines.

We are living in an evil and hostile world, a world that shares neither our values nor faith.  The people that we just helped become stronger than ever are those who chant “Death to America” and yet we are supposed to believe they will cooperate with us.  They, like all terrorists, will seek to hold us hostage and seize any opportunity to harm us.  I am thankful for the ex-military contingents and civilians such as Glen Beck who have facilitated the rescue of many of our citizens.  Sadly, our government leaders do not have the same heart and spirit. 

I am not arguing that we should have stayed in Afghanistan, but I do argue that we should never have closed the Air Base and should have gotten our citizens and allies out before removing our forces.  This was either incredible lunacy, ineptitude, or a diabolical effort to harm America.  None of those are acceptable to me.  You have and have a right to your own opinion!

God bless you and God bless America!

TWO WARS IN AMERICA…


On the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 my heart is filled with anguish and pain. The memory is burned into my consciousness and I cannot forget! My heart weeps for the families of those who lost their lives in this terrible event. Their pain has been exacerbated by the forgetfulness of much of America and most of our government. The most recent events in Afghanistan must be tormenting to them. The flood of unvetted Afghanis coming into our country and scattered across the land has to be painful for them and should be for all of us. Vetted refugees is one thing, but unvetted which opens the doors for terrorists to enter unimpeded is something that should never happen.

I refer to “Two Wars” but am not referring to Iraq and Afghanistan, I am on a completely different front and realize that some will call me an alarmist in what I will address, but I believe it is current reality and a future danger.  We had a literal Civil War in America between 1861 and 1865 and from all historical accounts, it was horrific and incredibly divisive.  In fact, for some, it still divides today and that is tragic. We have had more than a few volatile civil uprisings in America since that war including some during the 1960s that pressed us dangerously close to a full-blown race war and had the potential of becoming a second Civil War.  Thankfully, they did not escalate to that point. 

In more modern times, since the election of Donald J. Trump, there have been groups such as Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, ANTIFA, and Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.  It has, largely, been one-sided but the heat of anger, the fire of animosity, and blindness of prejudice are being exploited by those who want to inflict a ‘death blow’ to our Constitutional Republic, the United States of America. 

Sadly, we are anything but UNITED and have ceased to be “One Nation under God, indivisible…”  Some would argue that is because there is not “liberty and justice for all.”  But those arguments are frequently rooted in a blind bias, prejudice, and hate rather than concrete realities.  That makes the issue even more dire.  When facts and truth take a back seat to prejudice and hate, there is usually no resolution short of bloodshed.  That I do not want!  That I Resist with all that is within me.

The Two Wars of which I refer are The Coming Civil War and the Spiritual War that is now being waged in my beloved America. The original anarchist, rebel, and protester was Lucifer (the devil or satan) himself.  From the time of his eviction from heaven and fall to the earth, he has waged war against the children of God, God, and everything right, good, and moral.  He is, as is reflected in numerous passages of Scripture (Genesis 3:4-5; John 8:44; 2 Corinthians 11:3, 14; Ephesians 6:11; Revelation 12:9; Revelation 19:20 to list a few).  Paul warned in 2 Timothy 3:13, “But evil men and seducers will wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”  

The scripture of the blind leading the blind comes to mind because in this hour we are witnessing the deceived deceiving.  No wonder both Jesus and Stephen could pray, “Father, forgive them…”  Jesus added, “for they know not what they do.”  You may not believe in God and consider those of us who do, as fools, but One Day, you will come face to face with the reality that GOD IS!  It may come after you have experienced the destruction of Evil and suffered loss beyond your imagination. 

I believe the devil, the great deceiver, has gained inroads into the minds of men and women, most of whom would be appalled at the idea they are being used by the devil.  They have been indoctrinated by the media, politicians, Hollywood, and most of all through our Educational System. 

That tool became readily available to the destroyers because we slept when we should have been carefully watching!  Parents for the past several generations placed unwarranted trust in the Educational System and failed to carefully filter their children’s education or indoctrination.  I am not declaring that All Teachersare bad, they assuredly are not.  I Am declaring that the objective of far too many within the System has been to reshape the thinking of generations and thereby achieve the stated objective of Barack Obama, “fundamental transformation” of America. 

Not only have parents been negligent but so has the Church or more specifically the Clergy.   Much of the Church world bought what the liberal, progressive, globalist was selling and took a “hands-off” approach to matters of government or politics.  We sat silently as the curriculum shifted to a revisionist position, stripped our schools of any offering of moral foundation and biblical truth.  Too often, we lamented the change to our congregations but offered no clear-cut warnings or pathways to combat the atrocity we were witnessing, and our children have been deceived.

It is my firm beliefthat without divine intervention we are witnessing the demise of our Republic.  I believeit is critical that we get out the vote, go to the polls and cast our ballots, inundate our elected officials with email, text, faxes, letters, and phone calls expressing our desires.  I believe it is vital that we speak to everyone we have any influence with and to those with whom there is a door of opportunity, presenting truth, facts, and reality with civility. 

I believe it is imperative that we demonstrate a willingness to listen and have an open discussion regarding issues, problems, and solutions.  BUT I do not believe that we currently have the level of involvement, enlightenment on a large enough scale, or the manpower to stem the tide of evil without God’s divine intervention.  That may sound “doom and gloom” to some, and all I say rejected as a result.  BUT, please, please, please, Hear Me – I believe that we win this war if we follow some basic guidelines.

First, those who are given to prayer must become Intercessors.  Without prayer, we will find that our efforts are like rain on a tin roof, noise with little substance.  Prayer energizes with supernatural strength, endurance, courage, and wisdom like few other things we can do.  Therefore, the first step in turning this tide is Prayer!

Second, we must Invest ourselves in the War!  We will not do that until we fully believe there is a war and grasp the intensity and reality of that war.  I declare to you, that if the Left succeeds in their proposed agenda, we will watch our Liberties and Inalienable Rights including Freedom of Speech, Right to Keep and Bear Arms, your Right to follow the Convictions of your Faith and demand at the threat of prison or worse, be taken from us illegally, unless we COMPLY! 

I sometimes feel that my warnings are falling from my lips or my pen and going no further than my lips or the page upon which they have been written.  You are not simply becoming involved in politics but the Fight for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.  This is the Second American Revolution and could become the Second Civil War if the spiritual forces of darkness are successful in heating the pot to the point of boiling over.

Third, we must Return to our founding principles and our national moral moorings.  Parents, you must reassert your parental authority and assume your parental responsibilities.  You are mandated by God to oversee the upbringing of your children.  Proverbs 22:6 instructs parents to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”  That is not the government, the educational system, or the community’s job It Is Yours! 

Pastors, you must once again become “Watchmen on the Walls” and Sound the Alarm when there is a danger.  You must not only inform of the danger but detail a strategy and provide a shelter for the people to run to and to stand firm against the flood tide of darkness that is coming.  We are not to hide behind the four walls of the church but take up the armor and weapons of spiritual warfare and Stand using those weapons to pull down strongholds.  I realize that some may take exception to this strategy, but it is what I believe and if it resonates with you embrace it and join those of us fighting for America and for Faith, Family, and Freedom!

I do not vote for the Republicans simply because I believe them to necessarily be godly or of impeccable moral character.  I vote for them because when I view the platform of the Democratic Party, I find it impossible to reconcile my faith with that party platform. 

If it were only the issue of abortion, that would be enough to repel me and prevent me from voting for the Democrat, but if you want any hope of limited government, secure borders, Freedom of Speech, Religion, and the Right of Self-Defense, you cannot vote Democrat.  If you have any desire to see the federal bureaucracies brought to a place of accountability you cannot vote Democrat.  I pray that the blindness that has afflicted many will be healed and the scales and blinders removed.  My prayer has been for a long time, “God expose the corruption in Washington.” 

Please forgive me for this lengthy article which some will call Roy’s Rant, but please take to heart the dangers we are now facing in America and join the fight for freedom.  I am concerned that we will see another 9/11 or worse shortly.  It is time to awaken from our slumber and take our place in the trenches in the fight for freedom!  America needs her patriots more today than possibly anytime in history.  What Is Your Freedom Worth? 

God bless you and God bless America!

TYRANTS TYRANNIZE TYRANNICALLY…


Yes, I played with words in my title, but I want to talk about tyranny and in case you missed it, tyranny has come to the forefront in American politics in 2021.  Like most things diabolical in humanity and human governments, tyranny begins like a trickle and becomes a raging flood that is unstoppable.  It begins as a small seepage in the dam but soon weakens the dam so that the waters of destruction sweep over everything.  We have been the proverbial frog in the pan of cool water slowly heated to the point of boiling and allowed our own destruction. 

Fortunately, it is not too late, or I hope it is not too late.  It is assuredly not too late to attempt to stop this onslaught of the tyrannical being imposed on our republic.  Stopping it will require more than words and more than an ouster or two from the political ranks. It will require an across-the-board unification of people who love freedom regardless of their political affiliation.  America must transcend political parties and fragmented ideologies.  We must have a resurgence of the Spirit of 1776 and the commitment of those founders.  If we reach that point of fervor and dedication, we will reclaim and restore our republic.

You may be on one side or the other regarding the movement of a decade ago, the Tea Party Patriots.  The zeal and dedication to withstanding the tyrannical imposition of Obama’s socialized medicine via Obamacare were refreshing.  Sadly, the politicians were not so committed and too many surrendered to the demands of their ideological benefactors.  Money and power were more important than the wishes of the people or the constitutionality of the action.  That was a trickle that would lead to the river of tyranny.

The many inclusions in Obamacare that were small pricks that would become gaping wounds moving us toward tyranny were often ignored and dismissed.  As a Christian and a believer in the Constitution, I was alarmed when those demands included forcing employers to provide insurance coverage for abortions and sex-change operations.  Those are just two but each forced acceptance by the government opens the crack in the dam of Liberty a little more.

We have gone from a breath of fresh air in the diminishing of government control and regulations to the current administration where we went from the little prick of Obamacare mandates to the draconian lockdowns, mask mandates, and injection mandates.  Obama illegally and unconstitutionally used the NSA, FBI, CIA, and IRS to threaten those not bowing at the altar of acceptance.  We watched Silicon Valley become the propaganda arm of the government.  All precursors to what was to come when the time was right, and they were emboldened enough.

Americans were systematically and slowly condition to drink the Kool-Aid, believe the rhetoric and spin, and buy into the critical race theory, cancel culture, and the evils of being white or being conservative are probably more accurate.  After all, many on the Left are white and they are not deemed to be racists or white supremacists so it must involve political ideology, not simply skin pigmentation. 

The Obama administration introduced the idea of spying on your neighbors and turning them into Big Brother if they violated the mandated protocol of the ruling powers.   Our English language was restructured making so many non-harmful words harmful and accused of being filled with hate or harmful.  It has even reach, the place that pronouns of he and she are disallowed.  Mother and father are not acceptable terms, and pregnant woman is anathema. 

Ironically, the Leftists and Progressives rabidly condemn fascism by asking the government to take over more and more of our lives.  That is fascism!  Somebody said, “many of them would not understand if Obama himself were to stand there handing them bricks and wet cement for their own 6 x 8 cell.”

Obamacare did not make us healthy, and the mandated vaccines will not make us free.  If you take the vaccine or reject it, that is and should be your individual decision.  There is ample documented scientific argument to support both arguments for and against.  There are some unavoidable facts that the Left will not acknowledge such as the medically verified fact that even the N95 mask will not capture the microscopic particles that transmit airborne viruses.  This was verified in a scientific test over 15 years ago by medical personnel and Navy scientific researchers.  If wearing a mask makes you feel more comfortable, please feel free and if you do not then you should not be mandated to wear one.

The mantra of every tyrant in history seems to be their claim that their actions leading up to total dominance was, “for the welfare of the people.”  It appears to me that the Democratic Party of this era has morphed into a Progressive Politburo.  We have gone from one example of authoritarian impulse and edict to an even more sinister one.  It is progressive and the only end will be when we are completely under their control and dominance. 

One word describes the condition of the Progressives – Intemperance!  Anyone who disregards or disagrees with their dictum and the mandates of political correctness is not only vilified but publicly flogged in every way but the physical.  In some cases, they are flogged physically, and some have been killed by the marauding gangs roaming the streets in the name of some cause, they champion.

I detest true racism and believe that if we accepted God’s Word, we would realize that all of us are created beings.  We all come from the same origin.  We may have different skin pigmentations and come from different cultural backgrounds, but we are all members of the same race.  If I value God, then I value you and treat you as I would desire to be treated.  That ends racism. 

However, racism is a term used by the Progressive Politburo that is extremely elastic, mutable, and ever-changing to fit their current need or situation.  They ignore their own participation in actions that damage some sectors of society elevating one group over another.  Therefore, racism has become whatever the Progressive Politburo desires or needs it to be at that moment in time. 

Joe Biden is a figurehead president, and the Progressive Politburo is controlling his actions.  They cannot control his inability to read the teleprompter correctly or refrain from off-the-cuff remarks that reflect his lack of mental acuity.  But, at the end of the day, they control what he signs, and I wonder if he even knows what he has signed.

The mantra of the Progressive Politburo is the evils of “Whiteness.”  They no longer cite Marx’s seminal work Das Kapital, but their new ideological Bible is Das Whiteness.  I’m sorry for harping on that but as a Southern Christian White Male, I find it unpalatable and reject the denigration it implies.  I love God and in loving God I love my fellow human beings.  I may not like how you live, what you believe, your political philosophy, or even your personality, but I can separate that and love you.  I want you to enjoy the same freedoms I want to enjoy.  I want you to succeed just as I want to succeed.  I want you to have peace just as I desire peace.

We have watched a few corporations becoming drawn into the politically correct world of exclusion to a growing number adopt such cowardliness that they are afraid to operate without the endorsement of the Politburo of Progressivism.  That cannot be good for America!  There is no Utopia and only as we allow people and businesses to follow their own values and convictions and aspire to attain success will we better America.  We are nearing totalitarianism and moved from a soft tyranny to one that is becoming rock hard. 

God help us if we do not wake up, band together, and reclaim our republic.  God bless you and God bless America!
