Is American Unity Possible?

Is there any way for unity after all that we’ve been through as a nation the last twelve years? “Twelve years? Shouldn’t that be four years?” Nope: remember that Barack Obama actually defined just how wide is the political chasm between people in our nation.

Throughout the Biden campaign, we heard the incessant cries that he wanted to be “the President of all the people, not just Democrats.” He claimed he would “work for the good of ALL the country.” He, as does every presidential candidate, taught us all that ‘“Now is a time for healing.”

Then came the November 3rd election. Chaos erupted. Any hope for unity was dashed on the rocky shores of the sea of “Just ignore the unproven Trump claims of a stolen election and trust us.”

The calls for unity continued and grew deafening: “Stop investigating ballot fraud. What we need now is unity!”

Do you want unity? That’s fair. Do you define unity between the political Left and Right as silencing the cries of one side? Which side should be silent?

What to do. If the Right in this case opted for the Left’s historical examples of unity in the U.S., it would look like this:

In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and…

  • Deny the legitimacy of the 2020 election for the next four years.
  • Investigate the Biden family’s every business dealing at home and abroad.
  • Continually question Biden’s mental fitness to hold office.
  • Continually question Biden’s physical fitness to hold office.
  • Blame Biden for every person who dies from the coronavirus after January 20.
  • Blame Biden personally for every Black person who gets shot anywhere in America.
  • Never stop publicizing that Biden has been accused of grabbing a woman’s crotch against her will.
  • Emphasize that, any time a woman makes a claim of sexual harassment against Biden, she must be believed.
  • Continue publicizing that Kamala Harris slept her way into public office.
  • Remind people that, no less than Stormy Daniels, Kamala Harris was a public figure’s mistress.
  • Accuse Biden of treason for consorting with enemies like the wife of the Moscow mayor, who gave the Bidens $3.5 million, the Chinese who put the Bidens on their payroll, and the Ukrainians of Burisma.
  • Investigate the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, and if and when those photos can be released, they will be To the entire nation.
  • Demand that Biden condemns racism, anti-Semitism, and misogyny at least once each month while he’s in office.
  • Work to disrupt and slow the process of confirmation all of Biden’s appointments which require Senate advice and consent.
  • We will make one small exception and will not impeach. Just as Richard Nixon knew precisely what he was doing when he made Spiro Agnew his running mate (aka his life insurance policy), so did Biden by running with his.

Unifying Good Americans and Bad Americans

Empathy and a common cause are imperative for unity. Although, the effort to delegitimize Trump over the past four years also resulted in the de-legitimization of his voters. Clinton set the tone in 2016 when she referred to Trump voters as “deplorables.” The Democrats and the liberal-leaning media have since continued to depict Trump’s voters as stupid racists who supported a fascist committed to destroying America.

Will the Democrats recognize that Trump voters are not bad people, or will unity depend on Republicans first repenting for their sins to rejoin enlightened and civilized America? Michelle Obama pointed to the urgent need to unify America by reaching out to Trump voters as she stated that half the country — the Republican half — voted for “supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division.”

If the Trump voters have supported division and the Biden voters supported unity, the polarization of America has been between bad Americans and good Americans. There does not appear to be any empathy for Trump voters who believe that President Trump made America great again and blamed Democrats for destroying the country. Does unity entail mutual understanding and a common cause, or for the virtuous to emerge victorious over the wicked?

Unity under Identity Politics?

The self-acclaimed role of the Democratic Party as the defenders of minorities has implied that the Republican Party, as the opponent and the “other,” seeks to marginalize minorities. As Biden brazenly told a black voter during the campaign: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” The tendency to view supporters of the opposition as bad people was also exemplified with Biden explaining to an interviewer that around 10-15% of Americans are “not very good people.” Does unity entail giving Trump voters a path to redeem themselves by supporting the right policies and voting the right way?

How will Biden respond to the fact that Trump increased his support with every demographic group except white men? Identity politics explained the Trump phenomenon in 2016 as racist and misogynistic white men unleashing their fury upon marginalized groups. Hannah-Jones, The New York Times’ 1619 Project author, explained that the large vote for Trump among Cuban Americans was because they are not Latino but white – who betrayed people of color by joining the White Supremacist movement. Will identity politics be ended or will the tolerant find common cause with the White Supremacists?

Unity Requires Consensus

There’s just than one way to reach unity: it’s not “I win, you lose.” That will NEVER inspire unity. There must be a recognition of differences with a mutual understanding and agreement that for unity to EVER happen, each party must be willing to concede some things to the other that caused the divisiveness that both claim to be trying to eliminate. Are we seeing ANY of that today?

Democrats are outraged that Trump and his supporters are undermining the legitimacy of the Biden presidency, which is believed to reaffirm the absence of a moral compass among these deplorables and irredeemables.

However, the Democrats did not recognize the legitimacy of the Trump presidency! The Trump presidency was tarnished with four years of Russia-Gate and depicting Trump as a Russian agent. Hillary Clinton just days ago repeated that the 2016 election was “stolen” from her, and in August she advised that “Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances.” Yet the Trump voters are asked to concede the election without any plausible explanations for the obvious vote irregularity in six swing states.

What is the lesson learned for the Trump voters? Voters made excuses for Trump’s unabashed and un-presidential demeanor as a necessary personal trait to take on a biased media, tech-monopolies and the deep state. In the end, they consider Trump to have been deposed by a media that misrepresented Trump and never held Biden accountable, tech-monopolies that manipulated algorithms and imposed politically motivated censorship, and a security state that continuously undermined his presidency. Is the lesson that the next Republican candidate they vote for will have to be even more unapologetic and unabashed in the endeavor to make America great again?

The Divided States of America

One does not need to agree with the Trump voter or share their frustration. But the absolute resistance to recognize and accept how intense are their frustrations and beliefs will prevent unity.

The Biden election campaign consisted of delegitimizing and rejecting everything that Trump stands for, which implies there is not much room for a common cause. Trump aimed to reverse and undo all of Obama’s policies, and Biden has committed himself to reverse everything done by Trump. The Republican challenger to Biden in 2024 will likely seek to undo everything Biden seeks to do.

Let’s be honest: the U.S. has fragmented towards two sets of identities, values, and ambitions that view the other side as an enemy attempting to destroy America. Biden’s ambition to be a president for all Americans is “presidential.” It’s going to be difficult at best for Joe to hold onto the standard Democrat processes of constantly denigrating Republicans, diminishing their value in the World while preaching the need for all to unite.

Summary

Remember that old saying: “The proof’s in the pudding.” Americans have heard much lip service from Democrats about seeking unity. But I’m suspicious of there being a Democrat today who genuinely wants to compromise on the policies on which they have marched for four years demanding each and every one of them in “their” administration.

Unity requires compromise. We could list examples ad nauseum that illustrate that Democrat leaders have voiced numerous demands for unity in a Biden presidency. But little if any evidence of willingness to negotiate on any of their demands has  been rumored.

In a nutshell, I am suspicious of the Democrat leaders in Congress as well as those already confirmed to be part of the Biden White House. But we all should give them the benefit of the doubt for now. I hope I’m wrong. But sadly, my optimism vanished just hours after the inauguration. Join us for the deep-dive every Monday through Friday as we dig into what’s happening — really happening — in D.C.

“Overthrowing America From Within” (by Kelleigh Nelson)

  • “Restrictions of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us.”  William O. Douglas
  • “Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.”  John V. Lindsay, Former U.S. Congressman
  • “There is no substitute for a militant freedom.”  President Calvin Coolidge
  • “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” Thomas Jefferson

Oh yes, the perfect plan, a coup d’état if you please, was hatched and executed with skill by the Chinese, the Democrat Party and a number of Republican comrades.  Do you see it now?

Communist Collusion

The collusion was simple.  China hates President Trump, the establishment globalists in both parties hate President Trump, the mainstream media hates President Trump and Hollywood hates President Trump.  They formed a bond.  That bond undoubtedly led to the Chinese Wuhan Virus being loosed in late 2019.

If Vice President Al Gore could call the Chinese hierarchy in 1996 to gain funding for Bill Clinton’s second term by negotiating the giveaway of our military secrets for campaign cash, surely a call was made by Pelosi and her comrades in 2019 to destroy their enemy, Donald Trump.  The economy was soaring, Americans were happy, all was well until massive fear was sold to the American public about Covid-19 and the likely death rates in early 2020.  The economy was about to crash.

Coronavirus Task Force

The President’s Coronavirus Task Force was established on January 29, 2020, with Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar as chair. On February 26, 2020, President Trump named Vice President Mike Pence to chair the task force, and U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, Deborah Birx was named the response coordinator on the same day. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health and Director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Robert Redfield were brought into the task force on January 29, and were kept as the top advisors by VP Pence.

Mike Pence’s three chosen leaders, all of whom are Democrats, consistently enforced the never-before lockdowns and quarantines of healthy Americans, resulting in the devastating contracture of the economy.  How has that worked out for us?!

Anthony Fauci is a close friend of Nancy Pelosi, and appeared at the Atlantic Magazine’s 2020 yearly festival as the top speaker with Hillary Clinton.  Among the other 112 leftists present were Nancy Pelosi, Stacey Abrams, Bill Gates, and Marxist BLM cofounder Alicia Garza.

On March 16, a 20-page report from Neil Ferguson’s team at Imperial College London quickly gathered massive attention by producing enormous death estimates. Dr. Ferguson had previously publicized almost equally sensational death estimates from mad cow disease, bird flu, and swine flu.  Ferguson shared their projections with Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx and the White House coronavirus task force.  They even sent a copy of their report to the task force before its release.  The Imperial College model was proven to be complete trash.

It was Anthony Fauci who took the false death models to President Trump and told him the economy had to be temporarily shut down or 2.2 million Americans would die.  China spokesperson, World Health Organization (WHO) Director, Dr. Tedros Adhanom and Fauci are good friends and agreed on the death estimates.  WHO leaders, including Tedros, were accused of running interference for China’s propaganda to absolve the communist nation of responsibility for the global spread of Covid-19.Thankfully, our president cut off incoming Chinese flights to protect us.

Trump Economy Destroyed

Our president certainly did not want over two million Americans to die, so he shut down the economy, originally for only two weeks, but which lasted for months.  Democratic state and city leaders loved the totalitarian powers afforded by the shutdown and have continued the lockdown ultimately destroying small businesses and the middleclass.  All part of the plan to destroy Trump.

The devastation caused from the quarantine of healthy Americans has been far worse than the Wuhan virus.  More than 49 percent of San Francisco’s small businesses are gone forever.  In New York City, the devastation has reached over 60 percent, which is also the statistic for the entire nation. Think of it: 60 percent of all small businesses destroyed. Small businesses are owned by America’s middleclass — those who support Donald J. Trump.

Almost half of all black small businesses are closed forever, many from Covid-19, and those many who survived the COVID-19 shutdowns were destroyed by BLM and Antifa riots.  Suicides have reached astronomic levels; drugs, alcohol and marital and child abuse are at all-time highs.  America’s economic powerhouse was wiped out in one fell swoop, all planned and devised to destroy our President and the people who supported him.

COVID-19 deaths have reached 300,000, and a great portion of those deaths were in rehab or nursing homes where democratic leaders placed COVID-positive patients, spreading the disease and killing thousands of elderlies with comorbidities.

Fauci denied the use of the safe and cheap 60-year-old drug Hydroxychloroquine for treatment in early diagnosis of COVID-19.  He preferred his more expensive drug, Remdesivir, along with the vaccine that he and Bill Gates promoted to end COVID-19, an untested and dangerous inoculation that will fill their personal coffers.

I urge everyone to read the Johns Hopkins report put out by Genevieve Briand shared by the WayBack Machine.  The original article was put on the web and then pulled two days later.  There are no more deaths in 2020 than in previous years.  Deaths that would normally appear because of cancer, heart disease, flu, pneumonia, diabetes, etc. have all been categorized as COVID-19; the yearly death rate remains the same.  We have been lied to and the lemmings continue wearing their face diapers.

2020 Election Treason

Destroying the booming Trump economy wasn’t enough. The Marxist comrades who hate liberty and freedom had tried a myriad of attacks against the president, all of them failing, but this time they had to make sure.

In 1960, the election between John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon was won by Kennedy when Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley made sure the dead voted for JFK at the request of Kennedy’s father, Joseph Kennedy.  Texas did much the same for the vice president, Lyndon Baines Johnson, sealing the loss for Nixon. Vote fraud worked; treason was accomplished.

We’ve seen it time and again over the years. In 2018, Republicans all over the nation went to bed believing they had won their elections handily, finding out a week or two later they had lost. Recounts were done for days and weeks after the election of allegedly misplaced ballots which gave democrats the edge. 2018 was the test trial.  The House changed from a republican majority to a democrat majority with Nancy Pelosi and her comrades at the helm. We can thank Paul Ryan for allowing and encouraging 41 Republicans to retire that year. VP Pence’s closest friends from his six terms in congress also retired that year: Speaker Paul Ryan and Senator Jeff Flake.

In the 2020 election, 28 states used the Dominion voting machines with Smartmatic software.  Six They were connected to the internet and a declaration from an active-duty military analyst was made public in December 2020. The analyst said that within five days of the election he/she was able to connect dominonvotingsystems.com, which is Dominion’s proprietary URL, to China, Russia, Iran, Germany, Serbia and Indivisible.org. ScorecardIndivisible.org is a radical far left group linked to Barack Obama.  The organization is a radical Trump-hating group that protests and smears President Trump.

Treason and fraud gave the election to a dementia ridden 77-year-old whose vice-presidential choice slept her way to the top with Willie Brown, her senior by 31 years.  Within a year, I expect our first female president will be Kamala Harris, a hardcore leftist who hates America and who dropped out of the 2020 presidential race because she garnered so few votes and ran out of funds.  Harris is not eligible for the Vice Presidency or the Presidency because she is not a natural-born citizen.

Conclusion

The plan was conceived, plotted and carried out expertly by those who hate Donald Trump, America, her Constitution and the God given freedoms written within.  Four years of attacks on our president…Covid-19, the murder of our economy, and the treasonous fraud of our 2020 election finally destroyed President Trump’s landslide victory for a second term.

Donald Trump spoke our language, and that’s why we elected him in 2016.  He and his entire family have suffered four years of debasement by the cabal of globalists, including his own establishment VP who failed to save the Republic on January 6th, and then elbow-thanked Pelosi after his failure to act, proving he had betrayed both Trump and the nation.

Sixty years after the signing of our Declaration of Independence, the communists were here in America, and they’ve never left. They’ve grown via education, organizations and the freedoms allowed in this country.  Now we see the end results.

The left’s slow socialist takeover of America was ramped up when Donald Trump was elected in 2016.  Four more years of Trump at the helm would have put them behind by 50 years in their communist takeover of our country.

Had our president listened to the people who knew how to save his election and the Republic — General Michael Flynn, Sidney Powell and L. Lin Wood — we would not be facing the destruction of our Bill of Rights.  Instead, he listened to close advisors who continually told him to concede.

America’s greatness will be lost with the loss of President Trump. America is now in massive decline. God has all of this in His Hands.  Continue to pray for our nation and fight for the liberty and freedoms America was founded on by God fearing men who were willing to lose everything including their lives for FREEDOM.  Never give up!

Big Tech/Big News: “We Will Stop Conservative Speech!”

As leftists become increasingly emboldened following Big Tech’s recent purge of President Donald Trump from the Internet, a far-left CNN reporter is now calling for conservative news outlets to suffer the same fate. CNN’s media reporter Oliver Darcy is calling for prominent conservative news networks to be punished for “providing large platforms to bad-faith actors who lie, mislead, and promote conspiracy theories.” According to Darcy, outlets such as Fox News, Newsmax, and OAN are using their platforms to “poison the public conversation.” Darcy argues that a Big Tech purge doesn’t go far enough, insisting that cable TV providers must also take action against news networks.

“We regularly discuss what the Big Tech companies have done to poison the public conversation by providing large platforms to bad-faith actors who lie, mislead, and promote conspiracy theories,” Darcy wrote in CNN’s “Reliable Sources” newsletter. “But what about TV companies that provide platforms to networks such as Newsmax, One America News — and, yes, Fox News?” Darcy suggested that it was not just the anchors on these networks who should be held responsible for what he insists are lies, but cable providers who continue to host those networks.

Darcy then went about contacting numerous providers, including AT&T, CenturyLink, Comcast, Verizon, and others to ask them about their guidelines and “if they have any regret over carrying right-wing channels that were in many ways partly responsible for what took place in our nation’s capital this week.” CenturyLink was the only provider that responded to Darcy’s questions, telling him that, as a company, it was committed to providing “a variety of broadcast channels covering thousands of topics” and that it did not “endorse specific media or outlets.”

Darcy accused the other providers of dodging questions for not responding quickly enough. CNN, you may recall, spent years pushing the hoax that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Darcy’s attempt to censor his competitors comes after Big Tech began its crackdown on Trump and his supporters. Needless to say, the permanent ban by Twitter of President Trump’s account thrilled leftists in the media. The Jack Dorsey-owned platform claims that Trump’s tweets about his supporters continuing to be heard and not attending Joe Biden’s inauguration somehow violated Twitter’s guidelines on inciting or glorifying violence. Neither of those tweets included calls for violence of any kind, by the way. In fact, in the blocked tweets, Trump urged his supporters to “go home” and “love & live in peace.”

On January 8, 2021, President Donald J. Trump tweeted:

“The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”

Shortly thereafter, the President tweeted:

“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”

Twitter then responded:

“Due to the ongoing tensions in the United States, and an uptick in the global conversation in regards to the people who violently stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, these two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks. After assessing the language in these Tweets against our Glorification of Violence policy, we have determined that these Tweets are in violation of the Glorification of Violence Policy and the user @realDonaldTrump should be immediately permanently suspended from the service.”

Facebook also banned Trump from posting during the remainder of his term in office, and Snapchat banned him as well. YouTube suspended Trump’s account. Google and Apple took the next step of removing popular Twitter alternate Parler from its app stores, while Amazon booted the social media platform from its servers. President Trump was expected to start using free speech-focused Parler following his purge from the other market leaders.

CNN Becomes the “Censor-in-Chief” Among Cable News Networks

CNN’s self-proclaimed on-air Censorship Guru — Brian Stelter — welcomed a former Facebook employee on his show to discuss the censorship of conservatives. The fact that CNN entertained any discussion of media censorship is an oxymoron: CNN is just a news outlet that should be scared to death of even discussions of censoring any news media! But then I realized we ARE speaking of Brian Stelter initiating those talks. Stelter has been consistent in at least one thing on-air: forgetting about being a “news commentator.” He is anything  but that.

Stelter spoke with that former Facebook censor Alex Stamos. One would expect such a conversation with those two would be about the evils of censorship in media: you know, that “First Amendment thing.” What was NOT unusual was how far Stelter took the conversation away from Big Tech media censoring to the suppression that he says is needed of conservative news outlets One America Network (OAN), News Max, and, of course, FOX News. Listen to the back and forth and then the justification for such censorship explained by Stamos:

Big Tech and Big News Tag-Team Against Conservatives

It is a given that the employees at the tech companies and national news networks are motivated by politics, at least on a superficial level. Silicon-valley based organizations are predominantly staffed by far-left progressives who are responsible for banning or suspending users who express views that contradict their far-left ideology. Leftist television news organizations fight to keep conservative views from showing on their news shows.

These individuals are trying to safeguard the progressive political agenda. By limiting the dissemination of views or news stories they find dangerous, the leftists who are able to decide what is seen and what is not seen wield incredible power, and they have no qualms with using it.

But political motivation does not fully explain why these folks choose censorship over political discourse in which both sides are allowed to make their points. One can have a particular political viewpoint without desiring to silence those with whom they disagree. In fact, competing on the battlefield of ideas has been one of the bedrocks of American political discourse since the nation’s inception.

And therein, as they say, lies the rub.

Far-left progressives have a tendency to eschew political debate, preferring instead to silence their political opponents. The root of the issue is not hard to discern.

It is fear.

Progressives who support, and engage in, censorship do so because they are afraid. They fear that their ideas will not stand up to scrutiny. They worry that they will fail to persuade Americans to embrace their Marxist utopian ideals. People who push back make it more difficult for people on the far left to convince the rest of the country to join up with their cause.

They are afraid of conservatives.

When you see videos of leftists who are clearly filled with hatred of people on the right, you are seeing people who are afraid. When progressives justify censoring of  conservative voices, you see hate on the surface, but it is fear that is driving that hate.

The fact that progressives are afraid of more Americans being exposed to views that contradict their own reveals something they would rather we didn’t know: their hold on the culture is not absolute. The far-left is not invulnerable to attack. In fact, their fear demonstrates a serious lack of confidence in the validity of their ideas and their ability to persuade most of the American public to espouse them.

The advent of alternative media avenues like social media, internet television, YouTube, and other platforms has allowed conservatives to undermine the overall influence of the corporate press. Establishment media outlets like CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, and others no longer have the ability to determine what voices America hears. This is why they are cracking down on conservative opinions most recently on social media.

However, this does not mean they will win. Indeed, the fact that they are afraid shows that we can defeat them as long as we continue finding ways to work around their attempts to silence us. The only way we can lose is if we stop fighting.

2016-2020: A Time For The Ages

How good were the accomplishments by the President during the Trump Administration? Sadly, probably less than half of the nation will ever hear about many of them because of the vitriol of the media and their refusal to report the good things that happened from 2016-2020.

Could that be because they are so embarrassed that the reality show titan did not fail miserably as they projected during the 2016 campaign? Or could it be they feared a majority of Americans would determine to send Trump back for a second term? My conclusion is that both are true.

There is a reason for their vile treatment of Mr. Trump that no one can deny: the mainstream media hated Mr. Trump because he consistently called them out for their left stream partisan reporting during his term in office. He embarrassed them publicly at every event he held.

Have you heard that saying “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned?” A new addition has been added to that: “U.S. Mainstream Media has no greater enemy than a President who labels untruthful news reporters as evil news reporters.”

Both are appropriate and factual.

Today is the day each year we pause to honor one of America’s greatest figures: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I wonder how he would have found his way through the labyrinth of media horrors as has this president? We’ll never know. But what we DO know is what Dr. King had to say about what each American should say about those with whom we disagree :

“We do not love those who oppose us because they are loveable, or even likable. We love them because God loves them.”

“And by our love, we seek their conversion and friendship, not their humiliation. This is our Christian duty in this moment — to be healers and peacemakers, to overcome evil and lies, not by more of the same, but with words of truth and works of love.”

At TruthNewsNetwork, we have, during the Trump Administration, periodically published lists of Trump accomplishments. Our doing so would be unnecessary if the mainstream media reported the facts — and just the facts — about the considerable achievements on this President’s watch. Sadly though, our online watching and listening eyeballs and ears number in the thousands. Mainstream media (when combined) number in the millions. And the media leftists certainly understand and maximize their hateful narrative of Mr. Trump not based on facts but on THEIR partisanship — which is hard left.

Starting this new week, we found it appropriate to set the record straight by printing here the Trump accomplishments. I warn you: they’re exhaustive! If you have time today, read them. If not, just skim through and download them using the link posted at the bottom of this story. The list fills 26 pages!

Our projection is that it will be a long time, if ever, another U.S. president equals the number and quality of Trump’s triumphs — for ALL Americans. 

It’s sad we will not hear any mention of from the list during this week. But we have it, will keep it, and will be ready to compare this list with those of any previous presidents if asked.

By the way: these are vetted and confirmed!

Enjoy.

Saturday Bullet Points: January 16, 2021

Another crazy week! I’m thankful it’s over.

What’s next? It looks like “Sleepy Joe” is set to become “President Biden” on Wednesday and that President Trump will NOT be sitting in the front row for the grand event. All this (and much more) are products of November 3rd’s election debacle that will be known in American history as “the first presidential election  cloaked in fraud and subversion.” You can bet on that.

What else happened this past week that you need to know about? We’ve collected those and put them in bullet point format for you. Enjoy your Saturday morning coffee with us. Click on a bullet point and see a synopsis of a story. If you want more details, click on the blue “swoosh” and go right to a full story.

Thanks for looking in. Have a great weekend.

Bullet Points

  • Joe Biden hasn’t even been inaugurated as President and a freshman member of the U.S. House of Representatives has already prepared articles of impeachment she plans to present in the House Thursday, a day after the inauguration. Her impeachment claim is NOT against the outgoing president. It’s against Joe Biden. For complete details, click on this link:
  • There can no longer be any question about the Far Left in Congress and how they feel about members of the GOP. “Those ‘old folks’ gotta go!” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may not have said that in so many words, but she this past week made bombastic allegations against members of the Republican Party, especially those who are White. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Months ago, President Trump officially declassified all of the documents produced during the Russia Collusion investigation. However, those documents were not released to the public until Friday. Each intelligence department had to examine each document to determine if any information contained would potentially harm U.S. national security if released. Those documents contain damning evidence that confirms the suspicions of many that there was wrongdoing by the FBI in obstructing a smooth transition from the Obama Administration to that of President Trump. The revelations are monumental! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Have you paid attention to the Biden nominees for his cabinet and other critical positions in his administration? It’s uncanny how he almost universally has chosen people to which he owes something to serve in our government. And the partisan hacks are innumerable! Biden’s pick for the top Pentagon position was publicly hyping the Steel Dossier at the beginning of the Trump administration. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Big Tech social media companies have consistently used suppression of content they call “hate-speech” or simply does not meet the posting standards of each company. They censored some of President Trump’s posts them terminated his accounts. AOC is sticking her nose into stuff she does not understand. She stated Congress should intervene in media to “help” control hate-speech by creating a commission to make sure the definition of “Democrat” hate-speech is the only one that counts. For complete details, click on this link:
  • What happened to all the pre-election talk by Joe Biden about a plan to restore unity in our government and trust within the American people? You can kiss any unity goodbye! The tables have been turned and Democrats are already coniving to determine just how to use vile tactics to go after their political opponents in the GOP. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Have you seen your $600 COVID-19 stimulus check yet? If you did not receive yours yesterday, the IRS says you may have to wait and include it in your 2020 federal income tax return. Even though Joe Biden campaigned for months promising Americans $2000 in personal stimulus checks, Biden released Friday it will be only $1400. His flip-flop on this has angered a host of Americans. For complete details, click on this link:
  • Don’t forget that Joe Biden is numbered among the “most susceptible” of Americans to be infected with COVID-19. Are there any special things that must be done to prepare the White House for the Biden occupancy? One would imagine that a “deep clean” of floors, furniture, drapes, etc. would cost a bit more than are the costs for the same type of job for average Americans. Trust me: it’s expensive! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Mainstream media along with the Democrats have shouted incessantly since the Capitol Hill debacle how vile are all those Trump sycophants who mobbed the house of U.S. government. But to the chagrin of the Left, facial recognition software is allowing the DOJ and the FBI to identify a large number of those involved and subsequently arrest them. Surprisingly for Pelosi & Co., quite a few of those folks come right from the Democrat Party! For complete details, click on this link:
  • Word around Washington is that, very quietly, some Republican legislators were giving secret tours of the Capitol building the day before the mob attacks. Many Democrats seized on those demonstrators were those Republicans showing where all the good parts of the building were so those “tourists” would know where to go when they mobbed! Yep: they’re saying the GOP setup what happened. Is that true? For complete details, click on this link:
  • We already know that President Trump will not be in attendance at the inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20. I’m certain the Bidens are pretty comfortable with that. Because of the surrounding circumstances, Trump being there would probably be a bit awkward. So what will the President be doing that day? Probably playing golf. For complete details, click on this link:
  • No doubt there was significant numbers of news media covering the Trump rally and the events involving the Capitol Building breach. But would you believe that CNN actually had a photo journalist embedded in the fray as it happened? And she accompanied an ANTIFA protestor as they both illegally entered the Capitol! For complete details, click on this link:

What Has Everyone Forgotten?

Has anyone thought much about the travesties that have taken place in the nation over the past two or three years other than the one in Washington D.C. on January 6th? What are those travesties? Have they been addressed by the proper authorities? Do we know the results of the investigations into each? Let’s take a peek at just a few:

Hunter Biden Laptop with Implicating Evidence.  In October, the New York Post published a blockbuster story that quickly morphed into a comprehensive crime novel about Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden, and other Biden Family members and associates. That blockbuster opened the door to a long-suspected history of wrongdoing and suspicious foreign financial dealings of Biden family members. It was so egregious that the NY Post story and subsequent revelations have come to be called a revelation of the “Biden Family Syndicate.” We know from details released from that laptop that Hunter’s involvement with foreign government principals and also large company officials was largely on behalf of “his family.” Fingers point to Hunter, his uncle James Biden, James’s wife, and others of the Biden Family. And in details released publicly, fingers are pointing at Joe Biden’s direct AND indirect involvement.

What’s the status of that investigation, which the FBI stated was “ongoing” in early November? Is there really an ongoing investigation, or is that just an FBI talking point to quell Americans’ concerns about possible illegal activity on the part of an incoming U.S. President? 

Before we move on, just one thought: President-elect Joe Biden has been under indictment for bribery and has an active warrant against him by the government of Ukraine!

Alleged Evidence of Voting “Irregularities” in the November 2020 election. Numerous state and federal officials warned the nation in the run-up to the election that the massive push by Democrats led by Speaker Pelosi for mail-in voting would open the door to massive voter fraud. If such a move were vital, as warned by Pelosi, due to COVID-19, state governments would certainly need time to plan, create, and implement security methods to assure Americans there could be no fraud, testing, and then showing citizens how safe it was. State and federal officials ignored the warnings. The rest is history: or is it?

In at least six states, citizens reported thousands of examples of voter fraud that encompassed every voting precinct in each of those six states. Evidence included the testimony of hundreds of witnesses sworn under the penalty of perjury that confirmed voter fraud.

Numerous technology experts who have examined voting machines and software used in the election have provided mountains of evidence that support allegations of fraud. More than 50 lawsuits were filed across the country contesting election results because of fraud. The mainstream media filled the news world with stories of “every Trump Campaign lawsuit was dismissed quickly by judges. There is NO evidence of voter fraud!” Without exception, even the historically conservative-leaning nation news outlets like FOX News claimed there was no evidence of voter fraud.

“If the courts said there was no evidence to support fraud claims, why do people still believe there was a fraud?” That’s simple: in not a single case in any court was any evidence ever allowed to be presented and put in lawsuit record; none of the evidence was ever presented in court!

Democrats continue to cry, “Fake News! Fraud! Lies!” whenever anyone brings up a question about election fraud. Even Hillary Clinton entered the fray after the Trump impeachment vote by the House demanding that Trump be made to admit publicly there was no voter fraud.

If one asked any of the several hundred thousand people who were in D.C. at the Capitol on January 6 the purpose of their being there, the most likely answer from each would be that they were there to show members of Congress their disgust at the inaction of ANY authorities — state OR federal — to investigate to find confirmation that there WAS voter fraud or that there WAS NOT. It is unconscionable for any American to feel Congress really cares about the nation having free and fair elections each election without proving the November 3rd elections were free from fraud.

Allegations of Billionaires Using Money to Buy Elections.

In the November 3rd election, hundreds of millions of dollars in “dark money” were spent anonymously, mostly by multimillionaires and billionaires, to influence the election results. In the two Georgia U.S. Senate runoff races, $200 million in campaign money was paid to influence election results, most of which came from “unknown sources,” most of which were from out-of-state. Such huge dollars allow onslaughts of negative advertising that easily sways voters’ voter decisions.

This action is certainly not new. The U.S. Supreme Court codified this in the “Citizens United” decision in 2010 that blew open the doors for massive campaign spending from unknown donors. Much of that is expected to be illegal campaign contributions.

In the 2018 election, “dark money” flooded campaign coffers then. Specific allegations were made with examples and even evidence of illegal contributions in the millions. William Barr’s Department of Justice supposedly began investigations into this activity. But the Mueller Investigation just gobbled up all the oxygen in the investigation world. The only campaign finance cases we’ve heard about involved looking into Russian illegal campaign finance dollars. Have you heard anything about this from anyone?

Congressional Slush Fund to Pay for Harassment Claims against Members of Congress

In the past 21 years, Congress members have used at least $17 million in taxpayer money to settle claims brought against them by their staffers, including sexual harassment claims. Recent examples include settlements paid on behalf of then-Reps. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) and John Conyers (D-MI) for separate instances of alleged sexual harassment. Reports during the last four years of this practice continuing continue. But despite formal requests from numerous entities for access to complete details of these payments, Congress has stonewalled every person who has inquired for details. That $17 million already paid from this fund came straight from American taxpayers! According to federal law, Judicial Watch and other watchdog groups have filed Freedom of Information Act requests for the release of that information.

It is especially suspicious to Americans who know about this slush fund that Congress refuses to turn over the records of those payments to taxpayers. Reportedly, the claims made against these Congressional members include harassment and sexual harassment and even the sexual assault of Congressional staff members and interns. Those cases would be criminal!

Why hasn’t Congressional leadership come clean about these matters? What are they hiding, and about whom?

How Do Most Members of Congress Get Wealthy While in Congress?

We’ve heard story after story for decades of “good ole folks” from Congressional districts and states run for office as middle-class citizens who must struggle when elected to afford housing in Washington D.C. while maintaining their residences from which they serve. Then, a few years later, these public servants leave office filthy rich? How does that happen on the salary each makes?

Insider Trading is the most common culprit. Although against the law, Congressional members have been masters at creating plans (and discovering others already used) to obtain financial information regarding pending business transactions, which can reap monstrous and immediate monetary windfalls from those who participate. Numerous leaders in office have been implicated in such activities, including Nancy Pelosi.

It’s simple to access this process while skirting the law. It’s illegal for someone to give such insider information to a member of Congress and for that member to use the information for personal benefit. But that’s not all that happens in these circumstances. Often, legislation is already pending, which would bring bountiful profits to all those involved if passed. These legislators are often approached by folks looking for legislative help — including votes — that will initiate such a quick financial hit for those involved. And it’s happened before that these people “seeding” legislators for favorable legislative assistance actually purchase stock and other financial instruments on behalf of these lawmakers as quid pro quo for favorable treatment in Congressional matters.

Why hasn’t Congress listened to their constituents and outlawed any such transactions in any way at any time while serving in office?

Summary

These barely scratch the surface of the corruption that permeates our government. Perpetrators of these and numerous other frauds against the American people know that the public not having easy access to information surrounding these results in extreme difficulty to force the discovery through open investigations details of such wrongdoing with subsequent prosecution of those involved. But it doesn’t stop there.

The members KNOW that the need for comprehensive analysis of numerous of these sometimes criminal actions requires much time and investigatory resources. Those in D.C. charged with monitoring so many public servants and investigating so many of even very credible reports of these happening, time is the enemy of detail discovery and the ally of these wrongdoers getting away with their miscreant activities. The D.C. investigation clock spins slowly, as do the calendar pages. Legislators understand that better than the rest of us. And they use that against us.

Donald Trump as President certainly was a constant threat to these folks, especially when they discovered that he didn’t have much dirt, if any at all, in his history: at least none they were able to weaponize against him. Knowing that certainly must have kept them in a state of fright that the bombastic Queens billionaire would certainly start revealing to the public illegal activities of members of Congress if and when he discovered them. In some part, I feel that was a key that prompted the Pelosi rush to Trump’s impeachment in the House both times. “We must get rid of him to keep our dirt covered!”

Have we forgotten about all this wrongdoing? Is the American public going to continue to allow those who swear an oath to work for us and protect our Constitution from turning our faith for them into dollars and cents? More important to us is what such a process that has embedded itself in the fabric of Washington politics will look like during a Joe Biden Administration is? Is the hiding of illegal activity going to continue? Will it all continue to be purposely hidden?

We know that the only honest “Sheriff” to inhabit the White House during this century appears to be leaving town.

Dear God: are we in for another shellacking by a member of the Obama Administration? Is Joe going to pad his significant wealth, most of which has been accumulated due to “favors” to him since he left Obama’s side, by feeding the “cheat monster” in D.C. the same way others have done so since Joe left town?

God help us!

It Happened!

Fact: The United States House of Representatives impeached President Trump for the second time. Their doing so was historical in more than just one way: of the two previous presidents who were impeached, neither was subjected to a witchhunt and a rushed impeachment process that occurred without “regular order.” The House can suspend its own rules, of course, and skip past the House Judiciary Committee, which under regular order would call witnesses, examine presented evidence, debate among themselves, and then take a vote to send it to the floor of the House. If passed out of committee, regular order would then have the full House vote on whether it would even be heard. Pelosi’s House skipped committee hearings altogether and actually voted Tuesday with little discussion to bring their impeachment “Proclamation” to the full floor. 

The Nancy Pelosi House of Representatives skipped the normal process, which has never happened before. There was no testimony, no cross-examination of witnesses in the hearings, and no evidence presented.

What the House members saw and heard was a plethora of vicious and egregious attacks against not just President Trump, but also EVERY Republican in the U.S. who supported him. Multiple Republicans took to the microphone to make certain all Americans looking in saw and heard exactly how partisan, unfair, and untruthful were the non-stop railings against the Rule of Law in an effort to do just one thing: throw Donald Trump out of the White House.

While so desperate to achieve their objective, they accomplished something that they failed to recognize when plotting their coup: in their actions, they completed the alienation of at least 100+ million Americans.

Late Wednesday, pollsters questioned a larger than normal sample of people who were asked for their thoughts on what happened in the House. A large majority stated what the House did on Wednesday was unwarranted, unnecessary, and should not have happened. No matter to Leftist leaders. To Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and every other Democrat in Congress, the opinions of those Americans polled  meant absolutely nothing. Democrat Trump-haters were driven to get rid of President, no matter what.

Most conservatives were aghast although most felt it would be pushed forward by Pelosi in the waning days of Trump’s administration. Today they ask: “Donald Trump leaves office on January 20th at 12 noon when his term expires, so why a second impeachment?”

I don’t think history will be kind to Speaker Pelosi. There’s no doubt her many years in office were scarred by her dramatic lust for power. It consumed her as she forced her way to the top of her party. There are many Democrat skeletons along her path to power.  But her ultimate quest will most certainly  be her downfall in history.

I doubt the Speaker realized that there will be an asterisk included when her all-time “record” is published in History. That asterisk is to note that Nancy Pelosi is the only House Speaker to impeach a President twice — one time using no evidence that was even close to meeting the Constitutional threshold for impeachment. She relied solely on her power amassed from political debts owed to her by House members from her party and a few Republican dissidents.

Pelosi became the only Speaker to impeach a President with NO committee process, no witnesses, no evidence, no regular order, while debating for a scant few hours while allowing only campaign-style rhetorical unsubstantiated attacks against President Trump.

Summary

Fact: there are several good things that happened with this impeachment. Donald Trump certainly must feel relieved. He endured the vilest of attacks during his presidency, more than has any other president — with the possible exception of Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II. The result surely brings some respite to the Trump family.

Donald Trump can look proudly over his shoulder at the accomplishments of his administration, much of which were made with little support of many Republicans in Congress. In my 67 years, there has been NO other president who can lay claim to even half of Trump’s achievements for the American people in his presidential record. Try as they might, Nancy and Chuck will never be able to impeach those accomplishments: too many Americans lived and personally experienced those blessings!

In facing his challenges, President Trump recognized that they were accompanied by vicious shots against conservative Americans. Contrary to what Leftist leaders believe, Americans are far too smart and attentive to political matters than to simply “look the other way.” Why is that? Donald Trump spoke “to” Americans not “at” Americans. He spoke in a manner to which more people related than they have to any other president in the last 75 years. He promised a bunch, communicated constantly with his base, and achieved every one of his promises that were possible. Americans saw this with their own eyes.

No matter how hard the media schills lied to divert our attention from the massive good accomplished for our nation by Mr. Trump, most Americans saw a President fulfill promises for the very first time.

Did President Trump miss the mark sometimes? Did he make mistakes? Did he work hard? Did he accomplish a lot? Did he communicate well with Americans, not using “politi-speak” but a language that all understood? The answer to all of these questions is “Yes.” And for that, he was impeached twice!

Pelosi and Company feel they’ll now be able to force their craziness on the disappointed and disenfranchised Trump base and other conservatives. After all, they impeached Trump and proved he was unworthy! No, they did not. Americans know that what Pelosi, Chuck, Adam, Eric, and other Democrats said consistently about the President were absolute lies.

The only “yea” votes on the House Floor on Thursday came from far-left sycophants. That includes the ten Republicans who voted for impeachment. Who are they?

  • Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming’s At-Large Congressional District.
  • Rep. Jaime Herrera-Beutler of Washington’s 3rd District.
  • Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio’s 16th District.
  • Rep. John Katko of New York’s 24th District.
  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois’s 16th District.
  • Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan’s 3rd District.
  • Rep. Dan Newhouse of Washington’s 4th District.
  • Rep. Tom Rice of South Carolina’s 7th District.
  • Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan’s 6th District.
  • Rep. David Valadao of California’s 21st District.

I wonder what “obligations” these ten had to Pelosi? I wonder what she held over their heads to use to force their votes? (Notice: of those ten, only two from Red States voted to impeach)

Remember this: When you feel swamped by gloom and fear, there is hope in the air. Someone smarter than me once said, “All things work together for good for those who love God and are called to do his work.”

GOD’S GOT THIS!

America’s Subversion Factor: The Cancer of Communism

We introduced Kelleigh Nelson to TruthNewsNetwork partners several months ago. She has been for a long time plugged into the poltical structure of Washington D.C. government with contacts and access at places few in journalism can access. She’s a patriot, red, white, and blue like few others in the business of journalism.

Kelleigh called me several days ago as emotional as I’ve ever heard. She presented today’s story and stated: “If TruthNewsNetwork publishes this I’ll be very pleased. If not, I will fully understand.”

Why would she say that? She understands that many in the U.S. are not ready to accept the truth that’s contained within this story.

Read today slowly, deliberately, and maybe even two or three times.

Kelleigh Nelson

A simple democracy is the devil’s own government.  Benjamin Rush, Letter to David Ramsey

Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.  James Madison, Federalist Papers: No 10

We are now forming a Republican form of government.  Real liberty is not found in the extremes of democracy but moderate governments…If we incline too much to democracy, we shall soon shoot into a monarchy or some other form of a dictatorship.  Alexander Hamilton, Constitutional Convention

America is facing a conspiracy so deep that political leaders of every stripe, social and mainstream media, the judiciary and prosecutors, the entire US justice system, and every power in DC act as though nothing has happened.  And yes, they do it in such a matter-of-fact attitude that it’s easy to conclude they’re all in on the entire communist takeover of our country. Basically, they are…along with countless others who have infiltrated every facet of our federal, state, and local governments.

January 20th will determine whether we are still a nation of laws or a corrupt, third-world banana republic where horse-race fixers tell the truth and politicians are the real scam artists.  It will determine whether voting in America will ever again be worth the effort.

In four years, we have failed to see true justice against those who worked for our highest law enforcement organizations and have openly spit in the face of the rule of law and remained free and working for mainstream media and communist promoting universities.  Others who were innocent were put through a grist mill of false charges and fraudulent setups to get to the president, who was hated for disrupting our government’s communist takeover.  We know who those innocents are and how they’ve suffered, and we know the enemies of freedom; they are communists and fascists.

Faces of Evil

Mottel Baleston wrote of how we view evil people as monsters.  He told of an incident in 1961 when Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi SS officer and chief overseer of the Holocaust, was on trial in a courtroom after being kidnapped by Israeli agents from his hiding place in Argentina.  It was just 16 years after that horrible war, and tens of thousands of Holocaust survivors lived in Israel.  Those who had witnessed Eichmann’s activities were called to testify in the courtroom where the defendant sat in a bulletproof glass enclosure.

As the witnesses were called forward to give their testimony, they had to pass by where Eichmann sat in his glass booth.  One man, a Holocaust survivor, when he was called forward, suddenly began to shake as he passed by Eichmann and then collapsed to the floor.

He quickly revived and was able to give his testimony, but afterward was asked why he collapsed.  Was it a recall of brutality, was it overwhelming fear, was he remembering Eichmann and some horror?  It was none of these things.  He had expected to see a monster of a man, someone who had to be restrained, someone capable of the brutal murder of millions.  That is what he was prepared for, but as he passed the glass enclosure, inside sat a small, pale, ordinary, quiet man who looked like a clerk.  The sudden realization that there exists within every ordinary person the capability for monstrous evil shocked the witness and caused his momentary collapse.

Evil comes with many faces, but none so demonic and ungodly as communism or fascism, the likes of which have murdered millions over the centuries.

God and Freedom

From the very inception of this great country, those who wished to destroy our God-given freedoms recorded in the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were planning America’s takeover and destruction.

James Madison himself, the father of the Constitution, warned against convening a second constitutional convention. When he learned that New York and Virginia were actively calling for an Article V convention in 1788, just months after the ratification of the 1787 Constitution, he was horrified. He counseled: “If a General Convention were to take place for the avowed and sole purpose of revising the Constitution, it would naturally consider itself as having a greater latitude than the Congress…. It would consequently give greater agitation to the public mind; an election into it would be courted by the most violent partisans on both sides … [and] would no doubt contain individuals of insidious views, who, under the mask of seeking alterations popular in some parts … might have the dangerous opportunity of sapping the very foundations of the fabric….”

Madison knew there were enemies of freedom at the very beginning of our country and trembled at the thought of a second convention.

Only 73 years later, 620,000 Americans died in the “Civil War,” a war fought for secession and freedom by the south over economics; it had nothing to do with slavery.  The British slave trade was stopped in 1807, and its end in America was forthcoming as well it should have been.

Although most American conservatives believe the war was fought over slavery, it is a falsehood promoted by Rush Limbaugh, Tucker Carlson, Lou Dobbs, Sean Hannity, and others who have consistently agreed with liberals to refrain from being called “racists.”

The events surrounding the War Between the States were closely watched and commented on by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. There were no less than sixty-one letters between Marx and Engels touching on the subject of the war; at least two memorials by Marx, one to President Lincoln, and one to his successor, President Andrew Johnson; and a host of letters from Marx to his socialist allies in the United States, including several to an officer in the Union Army.  Marx’s letter to Lincoln carried an address, besides that of Marx, the signatures of several prominent British trade unionists and French socialists and German social democrats.

Marx and Engels participated in the Civil War by serving as propaganda agents in the Northern cause in Europe.  Marx served as a contributor to the American newspaper, the New York Daily Tribune, but also, he and Engels were contributors to several European newspapers.

In today’s politically correct environment, it is not uncommon to hear the south slandered with the very same falsehoods enunciated by Marx and Engels.  How many times has a Confederate flag, monument, holiday, or hero been condemned or torn down because “the South fought for slavery…” a total lie from the very pit of God-hating hell by communists?  Even soldiers who fought on both sides asked why the abolitionists were brought into the war.  Lincoln actually held the Emancipation Proclamation in his desk for six months to wait for the perfect opportunity to use it in January of 1863.  The vile statements by Lincoln about America’s indentured black men and women are never spoken.  (Lincoln’s Marxists by Al Benson, Jr. and Walter D. Kennedy)

Nevertheless, the evil of slavery, whether of black, brown, Irish, or other white souls, needed to be eliminated forever.  Yet, slavery continues today throughout countries led via communist totalitarian dictators, i.e., Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin, Nicolás Maduro, Miguel Díaz-Canel, etc.

The 1950s and 1960s
  1. Stanton Evans dismantled the myths surrounding Joe McCarthy in his explosive book, Blacklisted by History. Evans’ stunning revelations completely overturned the communist propaganda against this Senator who tried in vain to save America from communist infiltration, ultimate takeover, and destruction. His book provides the first accurate account of what McCarthy did and, more broadly, what happened to America during the Cold War. He showed what McCarthy’s short stay on the national stage was really about.

In the 1960s, along came the Weather Underground, promoting exactly what we’ve seen with Black Lives Matter’s Marxist leadership, many of whom were trained by members of the Weather Underground.  To these leaders and their followers, black lives haven’t mattered one iota when their businesses and incomes have been destroyed first by the dictatorial closing of small businesses over COVID-19 and a second time by BLM and Antifa terrorists.

Bill Ayers, Weatherman Underground leader, and Obama promoter said, “We need a revolutionary communist party to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, seize power and build the new society.”  America is truly under siege by rabid communist revolutionaries.  Antifa, founded in 1932 Germany have joined BLM; they claimed they were against fascism, but their goal is totalitarian communism.

2020 America

The 2016 election of Donald J. Trump upset the Democratic Socialist’s communist reset order. For four years, our president has been censored, castigated, chastised, and lambasted by the left with false charges against him, his administration, and even his family, but not one charge was valid.

Trump’s economy had to be destroyed.  Along comes China with a ready-made globalist bioweapon initially studied at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but later ousted and sent to the bioweapon laboratory in Wuhan, China, where the study was funded by the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci.

As head of the Coronavirus Task Force, VP Mike Pence chose democrat Fauci, Dr. Deborah Birx, and Dr. Redfield to head up the team.  Fauci and his good friend, China spokesman, Dr. Tedros of the World Health Organization (WHO) used Covid-19 to convince President Trump that the economy should be shut down or over two million Americans would die.  That shutdown has destroyed America’s small businesses.  The democratic totalitarian despots ruling various states have continued their fascistic and autocratic edicts in the name of health safety, a lie from the very pit of communist hell.

I do not doubt that the Democrats joined with China to destroy the magnificent American economy built by President Trump to oust him from office in 2020.  When the Dominion voting machines showed Donald Trump as a landslide winner despite the economy, five states shut down the count and reopened after thousands upon thousands of mail-in ballots had been hand-delivered for Biden, and Smartmatic software had switched Trump voters in these states to Biden.  Who gave the order to shut down the counting in all these states?  And where is the error-app that was always on the machines before 2020 and is now missing?  Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) tells us that election whistleblowers are being prosecuted in Texas.  For what?  For telling the truth?  Where is justice?  Where is the Rule of Law?

The Dominion Voting Systems (DVS) ballot-counting system used in 28 states during the election contained Chinese-made hardware components and the Smartmatic ballot software. Voter data was illegally transmitted to foreign countries, which led to the alleged seizure of a server by the U.S. military at the offices of Scytl in Frankfurt, Germany.  To date, we do not know if this seizure is real or fake news.

Since General Michael Flynn’s Pardon of Innocence by President Trump, he has been interviewed by various media.  His latest with Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch was one of the best, and the General told Tom that our country and her people had been massively abused by the seditious and treasonous acts of the FBI and CIA.

Had the General never departed the White House, the Mueller investigation likely would never have happened.  Senior officials in the US government and DOJ are bureaucrats who should be held accountable for corruption but have never been charged.  Foreign and domestic countries, institutions, and leaders no longer care if caught in sedition, treason, and corruption.  Nothing happens to them even when their massive duplicity is exposed.

General Flynn stated, “Our electronic voting systems, and there were three that were used with Smartmatic software, Dominion, Election Systems and Software (ES and S) and Harp Enterprises, by law, are not supposed to be connected to the internet.  And… you’re not supposed to do software updates before an election, during the election, or after the election, unless they’re recertified, and that is legally done, I believe, 90 days before an election.”

He went on to say that they have factual evidence through forensic analysis of the electronic machines having IP addresses (Internet Protocol), which is an electronic handshake between one machine to another machine.  In some cases, that other machine is a “server.” The investigative teams have IP servers that go to China, Serbia, Spain, Germany, Russia, and Iran.  This is clear evidence that foreign countries interfered with and were involved in this fraudulent and treasonous election.

Unconstitutional (read that treasonous) actions were taken by states and counties outside our election process. Yet, federal judges and even the supreme court are not interested in making sure constitutional law regarding our elections was followed.

On December 31st Sidney Powell was interviewed by Gene Bailey on Flashpoint and told us as much as she could without jeopardizing their strategy and what to expect next.  Listen to her important interview and fund her cause at DefendingtheRepublic.org.

Conclusion

The electoral votes were counted, and despite the many republicans who joined in objecting to the votes, Their objections failed to change anything.  Along with 74 to 80 million other votes for President Trump, my vote was stolen by the treasonous communist revolutionaries in the Democrat Party.

When the 1787 Constitution was completed, Benjamin Franklin injected this note of prophetic insight, “I agree to this Constitution … and I believe, further, that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other.”

All of this went along with Franklin’s basic philosophy of sound government, namely, that no people can remain free if they become wicked and immoral. When a society decays to the point where people begin to fear for their lives and their property, the demands for a police state have always been inevitable.

When Ben Franklin was asked what type of government he’d given to America, he answered, “A Republic if you can keep it.”  Shall we or will the cancer of communism prevail?

The Wolf Is At The Door

You may be shocked that I would say this: You’ve got to admire the Left. There’s no doubt they own the internet, the media, the courts (at least in Republicans trying to get a fair shake in state courts regarding election irregularities), and now the government. That when all lumped together means they have an excellent hand at the poker table BEFORE the dealer actually deals a hand. Even with all that, I’m stupified they have been able to do something I expected could only happen “when cows fly:” they have united America.

“Whoa, Dan!” Oh yes, they have united America — just the America that counts in “Leftist World:” the elite class of Americans. The only one of their number that has even uttered words like “we must unite for the sake of our nation” and “this is not a time for stoking divisions” is their POTUS-in-waiting, Joe Biden. They’ve identified a foil they can use for blame.

It’s not Donald Trump! They realize that at least half the country still loves him. However, the elites in the nation have hit a home run. For the very first time in four years, a chunk of Trump supporters have swallowed the evil pill of Mainstream Media, who incessantly beat the drum of “Evil Trump supporters incited the riotous atmosphere at the Capitol January 6th. Their evil cannot stand.” And they believe the President is at least partially responsible for the attempted insurrection. Believe it or not, many of the simpleton Trumpsters believe the President at best was an enabler of the Capitol violence at worst instigated terrorist acts. At best, he’s an enabler; at worst, a domestic terrorist. And everyone on the Left is doubling and tripling down on that rift of sorts to widen the anti-Trump gap a little wider.

Here’s how the Left is playing this: by getting ANY number of Trump supporters to agree to the culpability of the President, they are forcing each of his supporters to either back away from their fawning MAGA love for “their guy” or be guilty of complacency in the plot to destroy the Congress and the Capitol. And if they pull that lever, they will be immediately today and forever wear the label of “domestic terrorist.”

None of those folks went to D.C. for any reason other than to express themselves at their angst about the lack of interest from Congress to dig into the irregularities that were so obvious in the election that remain untested in the open. A few hotheads got out of hand; the police were oddly unprepared, which seems more every day that the Capitol’s lack of policing was intentional. Two people died.  Unfortunately for the Left, there’s no evidence of any attempt to overthrow the U.S. government last week. That would certainly strengthen their feckless attempt at the second impeachment of Trump in the House — which will NEVER be successful. (I know: “Don’t EVER say NEVER!”)

Yes, there was trespassing on the hallowed ground of government. But it’s ironic that people who have spent the last four years attacking the formerly sacrosanct office of the president of the United States with a hatred that surpasses anything seen before in the history of America, literally calling for his death, disgrace, silencing and imprisonment on multiple platforms all day, every day, as the international community looked on and rejoiced at America’s weakness. These people are now getting uptight about the holy ground of government. I have heard of exactly one (1) lectern and two (2) computers reported missing from the Capitol. You’d get more stuff stolen during a fire drill at your college library.

But all that doesn’t matter. Those who like to consider themselves the “adults” of America are now united in agreeing that this was a planned act of insurrection. Anyone who doesn’t agree to identify events as not just the impulsive behavior of a few hotheads but also a deliberate fomentation of the entire Trump movement is himself a traitor and a supporter of mob rule. The message is plain: if you disagree Donald Trump is responsible for this not-terribly-earthshaking act of violence, you have no future in America’s leadership.

This is insane on so many levels. But it’s mostly insane because it is entirely without thought for the consequences. A huge percentage of America — we could call them Middle America, but it’s bigger than that — still loves Donald Trump and thinks he and they have been maltreated. Does today’s leadership seriously want to alienate a huge percentage of a population that already feels disenfranchised? The question is no longer — and never really has been — whether Donald Trump believes the election was fair. The question is, does America believe it was fair? And is it really a good idea to keep telling Middle America, in particular, to sit down and shut up?

Grand idea: Why not just open investigations and show the World there was NO fraud in the election IF there was none?

The condescending and divisive language, the over-wrought name-calling, the stifling of alternate points of view — all this has to stop. 99% of Trump supporters do not support breaking the law. Their concerns need to be heard in a transparent, orderly, public fashion. But if they think they won’t be, what then? And once Donald Trump is gone, the leader they trusted, the one who gave the disenfranchised deplorables a voice and a chance to be heard — then who will deescalate, who will convince angry Middle America to walk out of the Capitol and go home?  Not Joe Biden, who is now claiming that police were too gentle to the rioters because of racism — as if racism had anything to do with anything that happened on January 6.

You’ve seen on nature channels how a pack of wolves hunts caribou. They cut off a single target animal from the herd and bring him down in a coordinated effort. Once they’re done with that one, they move on to the next. The Left pretends that once the herd gives up Donald Trump, lets him be cut off, and lets them devour him, they’ll be satisfied. They’re holding all of America hostage, promising that things will get better if we hand over President Trump for his extermination by the Mob.

“Give us Trump,” they cry, “and life can go back to normal.” The masses will sink back into their customary disengagement, and the smart people, Republican and Democrat alike, can get back to running the country. Trump is the problem! Under extreme pressure, most conservatives seem willing to agree.

But they’re listening to their emotions, not their brains. First of all, Donald Trump’s election to the presidency was the consequence of a change in American thinking, not its cause. Impeach Trump, take him down, destroy him, and all you’ve done is turn what is a movement of massive proportions into a disenfranchised and resentful conglomerate of American citizens — mostly voters — who are enraged at not being given fair treatment. That’s not a problem we want to create.

Secondly, Donald Trump is not the Left’s real target. We — anyone who holds conservative principles — are the target. What is there about accusations of “systemic” racism, “systemic” problems in America that the Republicans don’t understand? America’s system is the problem. America’s way of life is the problem. That’s what they’re after. The destruction of Donald Trump won’t satisfy them for long. The wolves will be back. And now they know that given the right pressure, we’ll throw them whoever they want. Who will be sacrificed next? If they get Trump, the pattern is permanently in place in history. The Left will know that forever when they come to Republicans with demands, and gutless GOP members will throw to the wolves whoever they want.

Nothing is more deadly than a hungry wolf who sets sights on the prey they KNOW whose family will give them up.

Anyone on the Right who supports the total de-platforming of the President by unelected oligarchs, anyone who expressed support for the idea of his removal via the 25th Amendment, and anyone planning to support the Democrats’ plan for impeachment this week needs to think very, very carefully about what happens next. Because if our elected officials impeach President Trump, they will be for all intents and purposes impeaching the legitimate aspirations and the legitimate questions of millions of Americans. This is not a recipe for restoring order and unity; it’s a recipe for disaster.

Don’t blame Donald Trump for the situation we’re in. Blame the institutions that refused to hear America out, the state courts that refused to allow in the record any of the piles of evidence presented in evidentiary hearings but never seen. Blame the media that joined in a blanket refusal to cover the rising swell of discontent. Blame the Supreme Court, which refused to hear what Middle America had to say. Blame every scribbler who indulged in some variety of the condescending and incessant cries of evidence being nothing but “baseless allegations.” Blame social media censors who only fueled — and continue to fuel — conspiracy theories by blocking, deleting, and stifling free speech. And blame every conservative who was too foolish to see what was happening before we got to where we are.

In an interview — now removed from YouTube — with an eyewitness to Ashli Babbitt’s shooting, a journalist addresses one of the rioters outside of the Capitol, a young man from New Jersey standing so close to Ashli Babbitt that he got blood on his hand. “Why did you enter the building,” the journalist asks? I can’t quote the visibly horrified young man’s exact words because the video has been censored. But he responds, calmly enough, that he and his fellows wanted to demand that Congress make an investigation of the election. “We just wanted to be taken seriously,” he says. “They’re laughing at the people who voted for Trump,” he says, “They laugh at us on TV, they laughed at us as we marched along the street.” He saw a man standing inside a window, laughing and filming as they walked by. “We just wanted a fair investigation, and now somebody’s shot,” he says as if he still can’t quite believe it.

You can condemn rioting and illegal entry into the Capitol without blinding yourself to reality. It’s time to stop laughing at Middle America. It’s time to start listening, and most importantly, to start de-escalating.

Are you seeing ANY attempts to unify, to overcome differences, to respect the rights of dissent, or any discussions of moving forward as one America?

There will be no “peaceful transition” without a dramatic reach out from the Left to that 99.9% of conservatives who are hungry to unite but leery of joining a bunch of wolves.

Don’t you think the Left should SHOW they’re really not wolves?
