America I’m Glad I Knew Ya January 25, 2021

The Supreme Court refused to accept the Texas case.  In effect, ruling that accusations brought by multiple states of clear violations of the Constitution in the theft of an election are not worth their time to review.  Justice Samuel Alito issued a statement with the dismissal that was joined by Justice Clarence Thomas, arguing that the Supreme Court should take up the case.  “In my view, we do not have the discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction,” Alito wrote, arguing that he would grant the motion to file the bill of complaint. 

The three justices appointed by Trump; Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, and Neil Gorsuch joined the long list of people President Trump appointed to high office who stabbed him in the back as soon as the opportunity arose. 

Across the country court after court refused to allow any evidence to be submitted.  The Media then crowed, “There is no evidence.”  There are over a thousand signed affidavits detailing election irregularities.  There is video of people running the same ballots through counting machines multiple times.  But all the media can say is, “There is no evidence.”  All the low information voters and other socialist fellow-travelers can repeat believing it is their own personal opinion and not something embedded through repetition is, “There is no evidence.”

And the objections to the electoral votes were interrupted by a carefully planned and timed disruption just as the evidence was about to be submitted only to be reconvened in the early hours of the morning when no one was watching and after most of those objecting had been intimidated into silence.  And thus, the election fiasco of 2020 climaxes in the official certification of Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.

It’s hard to call this changing of the guard a generational shift when the leaders of the incoming regime are mostly senior members of the boomer generation.  Although AOC, her Squad, and their ANTIFA/BLM bullyboys claim to be the voice of youth.  

Every generation since the beginning of time has looked at the next generation and said some variation of, “I don’t know what’s going to happen to this world once the kids take over.  The world is going to go to hell in a hand basket.”  From ancient Babylon and Egypt through our parent’s generation, seasoned citizens have all said the same thing.  And all I can say is, “I don’t know what’s going to happen to this world once the kids take over.  The world is going to go to hell in a hand basket.”    

Speaking of generations; my heart breaks for my granddaughters and those still making their way to adulthood.  After years of compulsory state education instilling Democrat talking points and make-believe science as baseline knowledge, they’re now spending their highly formative tween and teenage years browbeaten and terrorized by the specter of Biden’s dark winter in masks and lockdowns spiraling into Venezuela on the Potomac.  And while America cowers in the basement over the China virus China Inc. with Biden in the Whitehouse will forge ahead to become the dominant economy and power on earth. 

Once the Scamdemic/Plandemic set the stage for the universal unsolicited mail-in ballots in Blue states the handwriting was on the wall.  Once the counting began and Trump was on track to win the voting was stopped in four swing states all controlled by corrupt Democrat urban machines. On que hundreds of thousands of previously unknown ballots magically appeared from suitcases, election officials running the same ballots through counting machines multiple times, pre-programmed voting machines, and trucks in the middle of the night and Prest-O Change-O Biden is ahead. 

As if to prove the statists/globalist coalition of socialists and crony capitalists have their sights set on instituting the crushing weight of equality of outcomes and making America miserable again the unflappable descendant of Jamaican slaveholders Kamala Harris recently said, “So there’s a big difference between equality and equity. … Equality suggests, ‘Oh, everyone should get the same amount.’  The problem with that — not everybody’s starting out from the same place. So, if we’re all getting the same amount but you started out back there and I started out over here, you’re still going to be that far back behind me.  It’s about giving people the resources and the support they need so that everyone can be on equal footing, and then compete on equal footing. … Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place.” (emphasis added) 

Let that ring in your ears for just a moment, “Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place.”  Equality of outcome is the essence of the siren song socialism has been singing for hundreds of years.  It has been attempted many places and failed each time.  Let’s see how long it takes to transform the greatest economy the world has ever seen into a third world hell hole.  Let’s see if socialism can be imposed upon an unwilling and unaware nation without the usual bloodbath that has accompanied it everywhere else.   

I wonder when the low information citizens who vote for the “D” after a politician’s name because their parents did ever wake up to find section 8 housing projects in their pristine suburban neighborhoods, their children competing against untold millions of immigrants from everywhere, their dollars and 401Ks worthless, and China as the most powerful country on earth will they still celebrate helping to end the America First agenda? 

Sad to say it appears the swamp has won.  They’ve successfully used a thoroughly partisan media in league with the administrative state to squelch the first outsider trying to make good on his promises to drain the swamp.  The great unwashed have been driven from the palace and just as after the fiery tumult of the French Revolution when a decadent and ineffective Louis the XVIII tried to restore the monarchy and assure the ruling classes the peasants would never again challenge their rule so too Joe Biden has been anointed by the powers that be to make sure they are forever the powers that be. 

Those who cherish our constitutionally limited Republic looked to the Senate races in Georgia hoping the same election machine that stole the state from Trump wouldn’t steal it from Loeffler and Perdue.  Then again, Wiley Coyote always thought he’d catch the Roadrunner too. 

Now that Washington has officially become a one-party town again to the cheers of the establishment look for swift action to cement the undemocratic rule of the Democrats for perpetuity.  The first step is evident in literally the first bill Nancy Pelosi will ram through the rubberstamp House, H.R. 1.  This freedom destroying monstrosity was already passed once by the House with every Democrat voting for it and every Republican against.  It was blocked by the Republican majority in the Senate.  With addition of the two stolen seats from Georgia it will sail through and become the law of the land. 

How will this bill known in Washington Newspeak as the “For the People Act,” which should instead be known as the “Steal Every Election Forever Act” cement the progressive party of the deep state in power?  According to the Heritage Foundation, H.R. 1 would force states to accept same-day registration and universal vote-by-mail, require states to allow convicted felons to vote, and allow voters to circumvent photo ID requirements in states that have them by signing sworn statements instead of providing ID. 

In addition, H.R. 1 also mandates countless millions of taxpayer dollars be given to candidates for their campaigns, requiring citizens to fund candidates who those citizens actually oppose for office. 

It also: 

  • Makes it difficult for a state to discover if a voter is also voting in another state. 
  • Requires all states to provide free mail-in absentee ballots. 
  • Criminalizes political speech that the government deems “discouraging” to voters who are statistically more likely to vote Democrat. 
  • Takes redistricting away from elected leaders to give to left-leaning commissions. 

Maybe it’s because he’s a newly minted member of the ruling class but during a recent Democratic Weekly Address, Representative-Elect Joe Neguse (D-CO) spilled the beans about the true target of H.R. 1, when he stated the legislation “Will be the bedrock of everything we do in the next two years, reminding us that when it works, the United States of America has the best form of government ever invented.” 

And that’s merely the first thing on the progressive agenda.  Buckle up and watch for the following to vomit forth like bilge water from the best Congress money can buy: 

  • The District of Columbia and Puerto Rico will be admitted as the 51st and 52nd states adding two Senators each meaning four extra Democrats in the Senate for the foreseeable future.   
  • End the filibuster in the Senate.  Effectively relegating the now permanent minority of Republicans to witnesses without a voice. 
  • Abolish the Electoral College.  Thus, enshrining the popular vote and the tyranny of the majority in effect making fly-over states conquered provinces of New York, California, and Illinois. 
  • Pack the Supreme Court with 12 or more justices. Additionally, all federal level courts would be packed with liberals and left-leaning judges.   
  • Immediate amnesty for illegals currently in America with a short easy path to full citizenship
  • Open borders
  • All incoming immigrants granted resident status. 
  • No difference between the rights of a resident and a citizen including voting rights. 
  • All new immigrants would immediately have full access to free health care, social security, and government subsidies. 
  • Make the 1619 curriculum mandatory from coast to coast. 
  • Set up a Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans. 
  • The previously introduced HR 5717/S. 3254– Gun Violence Prevention and Community Safety Act of 2020 will be passed which would
  • Use the so-called insurrection in Washington to impeach the President after he has left office and try to ban him from ever running for office again.
  • Pass a new law similar to the Patriot Act which will negate constitutional protections and legalize the harassment of MAGA supporters.

§ Create a nationwide gun registry 

§ Ban almost all semiautomatic rifles 

§ Institute a federal Magazine Ban and require permits to purchase ammunition

§ Implement national “Red Flag” gun confiscation 

§ Tax guns at 30% and ammo at 50% 

§ Ban people under 21 from exercising their Second Amendment rights 

§ Ration guns by making it illegal to purchase more than one firearm in a 30-day period 

§ Force “Safe Storage” requirements on gun owners 

§ Ban home builds 

§ Ban suppressors 

§ Force FFLs to spend massive amounts of money to comply with new “security” requirements 

§ Expand “Gun Free Zones” 

One of the unreported commonalities between mass shootings: the vast majority of them occurred in gun free zones.  Does anyone actually believe any of these restrictions on gun ownership will be respected by criminals? Their only purpose is to disarm law abiding citizens.  Criminals break laws. That’s what makes them criminals. 

The Supreme Court has definitively joined the DOJ, the FBI, and the rest of the Federal Courts in the Revenge of the Swamp Creatures.  The Big Reveal: there is no justice, which brings us to two questions, “How long will the MAGA masses continue to pretend there is?  And what do they do when they finally admit that there isn’t?” 

God destroyed the Northern kingdom of Israel because they worshipped idols.  He destroyed the kingdom of Judah because they sacrificed their children.  How many Americans worship wealth, materialism, sports, celebrities, fame, or any number of other idols?  How many of our children have been sacrificed on the altar of convenience?  If we pass from the sunlight of liberty into the Democrat prediction of a long dark winter could this be the judgment of God in answer to our turning away from the cross?  Could this be judgment for the innocent blood which cries out for justice? 

After watching silently or mostly not even noticing as the Progressives have infested and subverted our education, our media, our entertainment, and our politics for over 100 years we have sown the wind and are about to reap the whirlwind.  As I stand here on the cusp of History looking into the face of the storm all I aca say is, “America, I’m glad I knew ya.”

Without Christ it’s true the world is going to go to hell, if not in a hand basket some other way.  Know Jesus know peace.  No Jesus no peace. 

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

The Watchmen Warned Us January 6, 2021

Many Americans yearn to return to the days of yesteryear when slouching on the couch, drinking a beer, and watching the game was enough intellectual stimulation for one day.  Or as Frank Zappa once expressed it, “TV dinner by the pool, I’m so glad I finished school life is such a ball I run the world from City Hall.”

It was this noninvolved attitude that allowed activists dedicated to fundamentally transforming America to capture the culture, academia, the media, the techno sphere, and ultimately power.  The best way to sum up the mental sleepwalking of those who luxuriated in the peace and plenty provided by the American experiment is found in a French phrase: Comme ci, comme ça that literally means like this, like that. In conversation it means so-so, or neither good, nor bad. 

And as the Spirit said the church, “I know you inside and out, and find little to my liking. You’re not cold, you’re not hot—far better to be either cold or hot! You’re stale. You’re stagnant. You make me want to vomit. You brag, ‘I’m rich, I’ve got it made, I need nothing from anyone,’ oblivious that in fact you’re a pitiful, blind beggar, threadbare and homeless.”  Which is just where we all might end up in the shabby future of the United Socialist States of America.

The Watchmen on the Walls have warned us over and over.

Western Europe as a cultural, military, and political group of great powers committed suicide with the two avoidable blunders of WW I and WW II.  Is it the fate of America to follow their example by passively accepting the imposition of a Progressive Socialist yoke?

After the fear mongering freedom destroying experiences of 2020, we walked eyes wide open into a well-prepared pre-programmed election fraud.  Now we face the on-going litigation for justice while the swamp’s smothering power oozes out of almost every avenue of the media telling us, “There nothing to see here.”  The wounded economy limps along waiting for the next unconstitutional shutdown that doesn’t apply to the authoritarians we call elected officials whose pay checks never stop. 

Yes, we all yearn to return to what we perceive as normal.  But if that normal is just a return to the stupefying normalcy of a semi-comatose existence paying no attention to the state of our nation if we manage to dodge the bullet this time rest assured eventually one will hit the target.  We need a new normal.  But not the new normal of a progressive living document paradigm shift into the bondage of serfdom.  We need a new normal of involved and intelligent participation if we expect to see a limited republic re-established and flourish.

The precarious position America’s freedom loving people currently find ourselves in has not come upon us without many watchmen on the walls warning us it was approaching like the hoof beats of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.   From politicians like Lincoln, to political commentators such as Pat Buchanan, to musicians, and authors, we’ve had plenty of warning if we’d only taken the time away from our entertainment naval gazing to listen.

On January 27, 1838 in an Address Before the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois speaking on the topic, “The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions” Abraham Lincoln said,

At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?  Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!–All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

Pat Buchanan told us:

“American’s greatest deficit is no longer found in the federal budget. It is a moral deficit, and it may be found in a polluted and poisoned culture that has become the great enemy within.”

“We need to do more than win an election or win the House or win the presidency, my friends: we need to make this beloved country of ours God’s country once again.”

“Today, candor compels us to admit that our vaunted two-party system is a snare and a delusion, a fraud upon the nation. Our two parties have become nothing but two wings of the same bird of prey.”

Another voice in the wilderness was Frank Zappa.

Even in the upside-down topsy-turvy days of the 1960s Frank Zappa was considered beyond bizarre by most people even the so-called Freaks and Hippies.  A little known and to many surprising fact, Frank Zappa didn’t drink or use drugs.  And a personal observation that may shock many who know of him but never explored his extensive body of work, never experienced his genius as a composer and arranger, or never actually listened to what he was saying Zappa was an insightful commentator on the American experiment perhaps even a natural philosopher ranking with such greats as Yogi Berra.

Here are some nuggets from his interviews that seem exceptionally relevant to our current slide into the abyss of Biden’s long dark winter.

“Schools train people to be ignorant, with style. They give you the equipment that you need to be a functional ignoramus. American schools do not equip you to deal with things like logic; they don’t give you the criteria by which to judge between good and bad in any medium or format; and they prepare you to be a usable victim for military-industrial complex that needs manpower.”

“As long as you’re just smart enough to do a job and just dumb enough to swallow what they feed you, you’re gonna be alright. But if you go beyond that then you’re gonna have these grave doubts that give you stomach problems, headaches make you want to go out and do something else. So, I believe that schools mechanically and very specifically try and breed out any hint of creative thought in the kids that are coming out.”

“Power will be maintained by the groovy guy or gal who gets the most media coverage for his sleaze. Naturally, his friends in various businesses will do okay, too.”

“Censoring what you say is one of the ways in which people who are not nice can take away your personal freedom.”

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

“In every language, the first word after “Mama!” that every kid learns to say is “Mine!” A system that doesn’t allow ownership, that doesn’t allow you to say “Mine!” when you grow up, has – to put in mildly – a fatal design flaw.”

“I believe that people have a right to decide their own destinies; people own themselves. I also believe that, in a democracy, government exists because (and only so long as) individual citizens give it a temporary license to exist, in exchange for a promise that it will behave itself. In a democracy, you own the government. It doesn’t own you.”

Since I’m quoting my way through this essay let me finish up with one from author George Orwell’s classic 1984 concerning the end result of an all-powerful authoritarian socialist state, “If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”

However, as hopeless as the Democrats who identify as journalists try to make us believe it is, I urge everyone to turn to Christ and find the hope that does not disappoint.  Those who already know Him rededicate yourself to following Him.  Those who don’t know Him turn from the dead-end ways of the world and embrace the life-giving faith of salvation in and through Jesus.  The Bible reveals the truth, points the way, and provides the key.  “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Then once we’ve entered this life of faith let’s strive to make our actions match our confession.

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.

Empires Rise and Empires Fall October 21, 2020

Almost everyone has heard the saying of Winston Churchill, “Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.”  It’s true that one of the most important benefits of studying History is that it gives us the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others.  However, a careful study of History teaches us that this seldom happens.  Which is why I’ve added an addendum to Churchill’s famous saying, “Those who do study History are doomed to watch everyone else repeat it.” 

Looking back over the grand sweep of History we see that all nations and empires rise and fall.  From the ancient cultures of China, Babylonia, Egypt, and Rome to more modern examples such as the Spanish, Russian, French, German, and British empires and in an almost textbook case the USSR we see that no matter how powerful, enduring, or effective these societies have been in projecting their power, providing an ordered life for their citizens, and maintaining control they’ve all passed from the scene.  

We’ve all heard some of our self-declared enlightened pundits compare modern day America to Rome just before the fall.  True there are many parallels such as military over-reach, deficit spending, inflation, crumbling infrastructure, and metastasizing bureaucracy.  I guess the example of Rome is used because so many people can relate to it.   

However, if we look at the other examples mentioned we see that these same deteriorating conditions existed across the board.  These malignant outgrowths of the hyper centralization of government are often highlighted and pronounced by pontifical pundits and academics as the litmus test for evaluating where along the trajectory to the dustbin of History a society may be at any specific time.  

While not disputing that these indicators of decay are evident as waystations to dissolution, I would like to add one more that is seldom if ever mentioned: the rise of leaders who betray the central values, ethics, and morals upon which the society stands. 

John Adams, one of the principle framers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution who served as the first Vice President and as the second president said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.  It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” 

In many ways America has morphed from a shining city on a hill into a cesspool that makes Sodom and Gomorrah look like puritan pitstops on the way to Pee-Wee Herman’s playhouse.  However, we’re still the go-to destination for all the poor huddled masses around the world.  One of the problems of this is that most of them have never known anything besides authoritarian socialist government.  And though the tragic results of those governments are what caused them to make the perilous journey here they seem to automatically vote for the American version of the failed systems they left.  Much as the refugees from California, Illinois, and New York all appear dedicated into turning Iowa, Arizona, and Maine into smaller versions of the failed states they’ve fled.  With these uninformed additions along with those who vote not by thought but by habit we currently have roughly half the people in America ready to vote for the final transformation of our country into a socialist paradise à la Venezuela.  

The reason this governmental rot appears to be spreading like COVID in our society is that we as a people have lost our moorings.  We’ve abandoned the fundamentals of the Christian faith: first, to love God above all else and second to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. 

The outward societal expression of this love does not mean we should turn the safety net of compassion established for the needy into a hammock for the lazy.  But it does mean we should provide decent and respectful care for those who cannot care for themselves while encouraging everyone to achieve to the best of their abilities.  It does not mean we should facilitate or allow violence and civil unrest.  But we should provide and protect space for the free exercise of free speech in all its many forms.  It does not mean that we should tax people into poverty and spend future generations into hopelessness.  But we should contribute for the maintenance of a government of, by, and for the people.  And that government should be filled with citizen legislators.  Not professional politicians, intent only on keeping an iron grip on power so they can line their own pockets and those of their families and supporters with the loot confiscated from others. 

Once we instinctively knew these things. They were the mother’s milk of American pride and self-reliance.  Today after generations of students taught what to think instead of how to think we are faced with the spectacle of masses of people supporting socialism who don’t know the history or the 100% tragic results of socialist experiments through History.  We’re confronted with shouting mobs crying out for the centralizing agenda of dedicated statists in the name of anarchy and with continuing conflagrations in our cities ignited by people who want better lives while burning down their own neighborhoods. 

What we need is a revival of Christianity in an increasingly pagan America.  Let those who see the light be the beacons of love Christ called us to be not conduits of condemnation who turn their noses up at anything that doesn’t resemble them or theirs.  Living as we do in a representative republic which operates with democratic input, we as citizens should vote our conscious.  Vote only for those who will uphold your beliefs remembering always that when we choose the lesser of two evils, we’re still choosing evil. 

The ultimate source for our guidance as always is God’s Word.  Speaking through the author of Second Chronicles the Spirit tells us, “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”  And on a more personal note Joshua exhorted the ever wavering Israelites saying, “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” 

And while God’s Word is the ultimate source of wisdom there is much to find among the words of men.  Winston Churchill reminded us, “A nation that forgets its past has no future.”

Why Socialist Revolutionaries Will Vote for Biden  August 3, 2020

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Politics, Politiocal Philosophy, Uncategorized.

Joe Biden is not a socialist revolutionary.  Throughout his seemingly never-ending career as a professional politician he’s been a run-of-the-mill machine democrat.  As with all the others crowding the government trough, he’s worked hard to live out the advice of Harry Hopkins a New Deal Democratic administrator who personified the ideology of the New Deal in the 1930s and President FDR’s closest personal adviser, “We shall tax and tax, and spend and spend, and elect and elect.”

Along with being wrong about every foreign policy position the former Vice President never saw a spending program he didn’t like.  He’s tried running for president twice before and never got more than 1% in any primary.  This time as the only viable alternative to Bernie Sanders, the only contender honest enough to admit they want to complete President Obama’s promise/threat to fundamentally transforming America, the democrat establishment dragged him across the finish line.

The explanation as to why the socialists are eagerly lining up to vote for Biden is best expressed by the Protestor Emeritus of the revolution, Angela Davis, a former Communist Party USA vice presidential candidate who is a former Black Panther.

To quote Professor Davis, “I don’t see this election as being about choosing a candidate who will be — who will be able to lead us in the right direction. It will be about choosing a candidate who can be most effectively pressured into allowing more space for the evolving anti-racist movement.

Biden is very problematic in many ways, not only in terms of his past and the role that he played, and pushing toward mass incarceration … but – I say but – Biden is far more likely to take mass demands seriously – far more likely than the current occupant of the White House.

This coming November, the election will ask us not so much to vote for the best candidate, but to vote for or against ourselves.  And to vote for ourselves I think means that we will have to campaign for and vote for Biden.”  (Emphasis added)

April Reign the creator of #OscarsSoWhite aptly summed up the sentiments of most by pointing out, “I don’t understand how anyone can read this, or listen to what Angela Davis has said recently, and not understand.  We’re not voting for Biden as much as we are voting for ourselves. For the ability to redefine our future w/ someone in the White House who we can pressure into change.” (Emphasis added)

And there you have it straight from the godmother of the Revolution.  A vote for Biden is a vote for “a candidate who can be most effectively pressured into allowing more space for the evolving anti-racist movement.”  A candidate who is “far more likely to take mass demands seriously.”  And a candidate who is, “far more likely than the current occupant of the White House” to cave-in to the demands of ANTIFA, BLM, and the other socialist revolutionaries rampaging in our streets.

Conversely, a vote for Trump is a vote for someone who will stand up against the revolution and fight to preserve truth, justice, and the American way.

Keep the Faith.  Keep the Peace.  We shall overcome.

Renewing Recovering Restoring Rebuilding  July 20, 2020

Make America Great Again Again!  He did it once and he can do it again.  By taking the shackles off the American people and our economy President Donald Trump in three short years led us from the doldrums of Obama’s New Normal to the greatest economic boom the world has ever seen.  Record growth, record unemployment, and corporations returning from overseas by every metric America was taking off like a rocket.  Then came the Social Security Flu and the plandemic.  Then came the outrage in Minneapolis and the 1619 revolution.

Like a one-two punch these twin catastrophes have America reeling on the edge of the abyss.  The Democrat Party is all in with BLM and ANTIFA.  They cheer as the outrages and demands grow into the shrill cries of America-as-we-have-known-her hating revolutionaries on the barricades of autonomous no-go zones.  Labeling anyone who gets in the way of their takeover as racists, these black shirted thugs operate as the military arm of the socialists attempting to remake America in the image of their revered Cuba and Venezuela.

Most Republicans shake in fear of the broad-brush ad hominin attacks of the democrats who identify as journalists.  In stark contrast to this toothless and despicable abdication President Trump boldly stands almost alone trying to rally the forces of civil society in the face of anarchy and rebellion.  The rising crescendo of attacks, accusations, investigations, and who knows maybe even another manufactured impeachment debacle fall like hammer blows.  Never has one politician stood up under such a relentless daily attack.

Think about it. If Hillary had won where do you think we would be right now?  If the socialists manage to drag Old Joe and whoever they really want to be president over the cheat-by-mail finish line where do you think we will be in a year from now?

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.  All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.  Our President is sounding forth the trumpet that shall never sound retreat.

President Donald Trump staked out some major positions of his re-election campaign during a powerful speech in the Dream City Church in North Phoenix at an event organized by Students for Trump and Turning Point Action.  In this speech our President didn’t equivocate or evade.  He forthrightly addressed the big issues of our times outlining major themes of his America First Agenda: immigration, China, big tech censorship, Democrats push for voting by mail, and the radical left’s war on America’s heritage and monuments.

To thunderous applause he said, “This is a choice of two futures: the left’s vision of disunity and discord or our vision of equal opportunity and equal justice.  We will never cave to the left-wing and the left-wing intolerance. We will never surrender to mob violence, and we will uphold American freedom, equality, and justice for every citizen of every background,”

The president pointed out that we are engaged in a relentless fight against a radicalized left.  And that they use their almost complete control of the media, entertainment, and academia to suppress free speech saying, “Anyone who dissents from their orthodoxy must be punished, canceled, or banished.  Democrats have embarked on a mission to tear down existing American traditions and institutions, no matter what the cost.  We’re not going to take moral lectures from the same left-wing ideologues who oppose school choice, who support deadly sanctuary cities, who want to defund our police – defund and abolish our police.  Think of it: Defund and abolish is now their theme.”

The illegal efforts to destroy and deface America’s monuments and statues by the 1619 rebels shows how much they want to fundamentally change everything about our country.

The President said, “They’re tearing down statues, desecrating monuments, and purging dissenters.  It’s not the behavior of a peaceful political movement; it’s the behavior of totalitarians and tyrants and people that don’t love our country.”

Turning to the Democrat push for universal mail-in voting which amounts to changing the rules in the middle of an election year, without any reliable vetting procedures in place the President observed, “This will be, in my opinion, the most corrupt election in the history of our country.”

Not one to leave foreign policy out of his equations President Trump reminded the crowd that previous leaders allowed China to rip off the United States.  He is the first president in decades to stand up to the communist behemoth.  Warning that, “A vote for Biden in 2020 was a vote for China.  They get in, China will own this country” the President brought his audience to their feet.

Immigration wasn’t forgotten in this speech either as the President pointed to the progress on the wall on the southern border and his curtailing of visas in favor of American workers.  He thundered from the podium, “We took historic action to block the entry of foreign workers into our nation.  We believe that companies should hire American workers and American students first.”

The Masters of the Universe tech giants didn’t escape President Trump’s target as he warned of their efforts to censor the free speech of anyone who doesn’t toe the Liberal-Democrat-Socialist line.  “As everyone knows, they’re using their enormous power to silence conservative voices.  You know that. It’s not even close. I don’t even think they’re hiding it anymore,” he said.

The president spoke about the righteous defiance of those who made America free in the first place and who stood up throughout our history to keep the light of liberty alive.  He repeatedly urged Americans to keep the fire of freedom burning.  Noting that we are in a spiritual battle the President said, “It’s the same spirit that compels each of you to stand strong against the dull, mindless, soul-crushing conformity mandated by far-left pundits, professors, and liberal politicians.  They’re taking our country in the wrong direction.”

Seeing his opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, as merely a straw man, a cat’s paw the left are exploiting to regain the power they lost when he was elected President, Trump noted, “If ever he became President, this country would be a mess. They would rip down everything … He wouldn’t call the shots.  He would have nothing to do with it. The left would only lock him in the Oval Office so they could do as they pleased.”

Some see the election of Donald Trump in 2016 as nothing less than a miracle.  Whether the President believes that or not I don’t know.  Keeping his remarks to a more secular turn the President attributed his surprise election to the fact that Americans weren’t happy with the way the country was headed under former President Barack Obama and his Vice President Joe Biden.  Looking directly into the cameras he said, “I’m only here because of President Obama and the job he did, and Sleepy Joe Biden and the job that he didn’t do.  People were very unhappy. The fake news doesn’t report it. There was tremendous dissent, tremendous anger.”

What does all this mean to us?  Those of us who support President Trump must soldier on.  We may have relatives and friends shun us.  We will see our standards, goals, and beliefs disparaged daily in the media.  We may face discrimination and reprisals at work, at school, and at home.  But we cannot waver. We must do all we can to preserve truth, justice, and the American way.

As Thomas Paine told us at the beginning of the American experiment when we dared to face off against the most powerful country in the world, “These are the times that try men’s souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.  What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value.  Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.”

Keep the faith.  Keep the peace.  We shall overcome.
