Serial Betrayal – More Government Attacks Against Citizens

Angry Wet ChickenGovernment laws, rules, regulations, and the tyrannical thumb of bureaucrats upon the scale of justice mean citizens lose, not gain, freedoms.  Consider the oppression created by the European Union to “protect” wine industries but, in so doing, eradicate competition and lock in prices to which the government gets a portion through taxes, tariffs, and trade.  The cost, though, is to stop the majority of innovation, the role of technology, and the promotion of class warfare.

For example, in reviewing the history of wine, there are several events where a member of the royalty got into a particular product, and the upper classes adopted the same tastes, regardless of costs, and to the detriment of all citizens.  Tea, Port wine, Champagne, and so many other products through history repeat this process, and the government is used to protect the product, to the detriment and cost of all citizens.  Consider this for a moment; similar tactics would be considered protectionist, monopolistic, and highly illegal in any other industry.  Yet, because the government takes these actions, they are allowed to bend the rules, act in a manner disrupting all citizens, and worse, betray the foundational anchors of a society to trust their government.  When trust in government is destroyed, the government has no moral standing to represent its citizens.  Few understand this is a precious commodity, and even fewer, especially in government, will admit to honoring it.This we'll defend. | Defender, Army mom, American flag

A few examples are required to help drive home this truth; please note those specifically named politicians represent the problem, not the only people betraying and using government jargon and bureaucrats to hide and obfuscate the citizenry.  Ridding the body politic of these examples is a small step in the right direction, but the bureaucrats are the primary source of power; thus, reducing the size of government is the answer, not merely replacing the elected heads abusing their office for personal gain and political power.

Senator Mitt Romney finds himself on top of this list of characters not deserving of his office, and who, with his family, should be as investigated as Biden and Clinton.  Sen. Romney recently changed his mind about SCOTUS Nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson.  Because of a supposedly in-depth discussion, the senator now considers the nominee “mainstream.”  Senator, what does “mainstream” mean?  Why should a judge be “mainstream?”  Finally, which stream is “mainstream?”

I have made my mind up on this disastrous nominee based solely upon her non-qualification for a judicial appointment, let alone the ability to sit on the “Court of last resort.”  Her judicial activism, her refusal to use logic and common sense in her decisioning, her flaccid legal mind, and her disastrous leaning toward pro-child pornography are just a few reasons she should NEVER sit on the Supreme Court of this the United States of America.  Good senator, your Yahoo! News article fluff piece does nothing to explain why you changed your mind.  If Judge Jackson was not qualified for a district judgeship, what has changed in the last few weeks to change your mind?  I smell serial betrayal of the citizenry and more mealy-mouthed yellow spinelessness that cost you the US Presidency!

Three state governors also help to elucidate the principle of serial betrayal and deserve removal (in shame) from public office and a transparent investigation.  New Mexico, Utah, and Michigan, your governors Michelle Lujan Grisham, Spencer J. Cox, and Gretchen Whitmer, respectively, are serial betrayers worthy of Benedict Arnold, Doña Marina, or Brutus.  Consider their actions, not their words, and you will find innumerable betrayals made for personal power, political gain, and the demonization of the citizens for the promotion of those who consider themselves elite.  From mask-wearing, mask mandates, government brutality against citizens, and the passing of laws to the destruction of the citizenry, these governors do not deserve janitor’s office, let alone commander-in-chief.

Under the rule of Grisham and through a disastrous legislature, New Mexico became what is termed an“Adult-use Cannabis” state, which means that for recreational use, cannabis can be sold and consumed by adults.  In a state teeming with homelessness, poverty, and already suffering from drug and alcohol abuse problems rampant in the citizenry, the legislature, cheered on by the governor, began to sell cannabis.  The excuse sold to the people, “The state needs to expand its revenue base.”  How does selling an addictive substance to a citizenry already near collapse from the weight of homelessness, illegal immigration, and government regulation improve the tax base?  Simple question, never asked by the cheering media nor answered by the betraying elected leaders proposing another sale of an addictive and harmful substance.Ziad K. Abdelnour Quote: "Trust is earned, respect is given, and loyalty is demonstrated ...

Governor Cox ruled that when the Utah Jazz began awarding scholarships based on race qualifications, as not racist, his colors were evident as a betrayer in deed, not merely by word.  Worse, look to the wording of his first action as governor, what is known as the Utah Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion: A Declaration on Five Principles and Actions to Create Equal Opportunity.  First, we need to clarify that nothing in this declaration was needed as existing laws are regularly enforced already on the books.  Yet, this new declaration adds some pretty ambiguous wording that is not clarified and will make judicial activism worse, not better.  Leading to the first question, why was this signed into law by the governor who is expected to lead a state?

What does “economic inclusion” mean, and why should all Utahns or any citizens in a direct representative government agree this wording is essential?  What is a “racially equitable state?”  Utah and every other state in America’s union are already racially equitable, only made inequitable by the bureaucrats enforcing the government’s wishes.  Consider the housing projects created by the federal government, supported by state governments, where race is inequitable by design.  Tell me why the government doesn’t just end the housing programs and the racial division they created to have a class of people always ready to riot?25 Quotes on Friendship, Trust, Love and Betrayal

What are “cultures of inclusion?”  The US Constitution already declares in words of soberness, “All men are created equal.”  The Utah State Constitution declares in Section 1 the following:

All men have the inherent and inalienable right to enjoy and defend their lives and liberties; to acquire, possess, and protect property; to worship according to the dictates of their consciences; to assemble peaceably, protest against wrongs, and petition for redress of grievances; to communicate freely their thoughts and opinions, being responsible for the abuse of that right.”

As a point of fact, Section four of the Utah State Constitution remains an even more powerful declaration, more easily understood, supporting equal rights, where equal rights promote a society of inclusion, where cultures of inclusion are grown and sustained.

Further in the declaration on racial equity, diversity, and inclusion, we find another phrase with no meaning and lots of availability for abuse, “… equal opportunity and access to education, employment, housing, and healthcare.”  The recent COVID-Farrago saw healthcare limited based upon race, and Governor Cox did nothing!  The recent COVID-Government sponsored pandemic also saw employment and housing decisions influenced unequally, opportunities to pursue life, liberty, and happiness were restricted, and Governors Cox, Grisham, and Whitmer were leading the pack in cheering and advancing unequal treatment under the law.  Why?  Why is equality something to be turned on and off based upon skin color, obeisance to government mandates, and the cudgel of government used against citizens who have the right to be left alone?Betrayal Sayings and Quotes ~ Best Quotes and Sayings

In reading the five actions you have committed Utahans to follow, Governor Cox, I am left in a mental swamp equivalent to the Okefenokee Swamp.  Racism in America, especially in Utah, only exists because the government is building a disgruntled class of people who can be depended upon to riot explosively anytime their government benefits are threatened.  This is not equality and does not promote life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but you have insisted that all Utahans are racist by default.  I OBJECT!

Action item two declares the need to invest more in creating the perpetually aggrieved class.  More welfare, not less, breeds more discouragement, anger, and racial inequity.  Since the government has created racial problems and supports racial inequality through government action, why do we not reduce government to improve racial justice and inclusion?  The remaining action items do nothing to advance anything but more government top-down actions, which further promote racism as a government action!10 True Quotes About Being Betrayed

30 April 2020, the Michigan State Supreme Court stripped Governor Whitmer of her legal basis of powers for violating the citizen’s rights to representative government.  Yet, Gov. Whitmer was able to continue to abuse, despise, and detest through government actions the rights, liberties, and lives of Michigan’s electorate for the entirety of the government-mandated COVID-Pandemic.  Is there any more glaring example of treason and betrayal by an elected official, let alone a sitting governor, on a massive power grab?  Newsom and Cuomo cannot pale the hubris of this governor, Gov. Whitmer; you deserve to be named beside Benedict Arnold, Doña Marina, or Brutus as the greatest betrayers and traitors in history.

Serial betrayal of the electorate appears to be a game; how much can a politician get away with, remain in power, and be considered honorable?  Hollywood got something right in the Pirates of the Caribbean” movies when Captain Jack Sparrow said, “The deepest circle of hell is reserved for betrayers and mutineers.”  I believe in the rule of law and so wish you your day in court, in front of a jury of your peers, where justice may be served.  I am not your judge, juror, or executioner.  I am a concerned citizen who is fed up with the gamesmanship of politics!

Knowledge Check!America is a Constitutional Republic, a democracy, and a direct representative style of government; thus, I ask, who are you representing?  The demographics of Utah reflect that the governor is not representing the majority of his constituents.  The demographics of New Mexico and Michigan are similar but also reflect that the constituents are not being represented by the governments and governors currently executing the offices held.  On the mayoral level, too many mayors are learning how to deceive, mimic despicableness, and manipulate the media to play the games and achieve elected offices beyond their maximum level of incompetence.  Why is this happening, the gamesmanship of politicians?  The bureaucrats consider themselves to possess lifelong employment in a cushy and “influential” office; they have lists of media heads to call and whisper to and lists of donors and influential people schmooze.

The answer to solving these problems is a more informed electorate and smaller government!

Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? – The Role of the Citizen in Government

Public Service NoteThe links in this article are essential to review.  If you know better resources, please let me know in the comments.  Thank you!

QuestionIn The Satires, VI, Juvenal poses a question of great importance, “Who will watch the watchmen?”  As more and more dirt on a host of politicians comes to the fore, as China expands its heinous reach in the Pacific Ocean, threatening trade and disrupting lives, as the Russia/Ukraine crisis grows, we, the citizens, are left asking this question.  There is only one answer, we, the citizens of representative governments, are charged with watching the watchmen.  A more critical and cogent point has not presented itself in these writings.

Regularly I write about the findings of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) – Office of Inspector General (VA-OIG).  As a disabled veteran, a person falsely arrested, injured by VA Police Officers, and flagged fallaciously as a “behavioral problem,” I am a watcher of the watchmen and report on the findings.  Unfortunately, the VA has turned both a blind eye and a deaf ear to the VA-OIG and my summarizations of the VA-OIG’s conclusions.  You, the taxpayer, need to know what the government is doing in your name and with your tax dollars.  We, are the watchmen tasked with watching the watcher (elected political officials), who were hired (elected) to scrutinize the government.  Is our role in the direct representative government of this constitutional republic clear?Apathy

Did you know your neighbors sued the Baltimore Public School system for breach of public trust?  For more than 40 years, the Baltimore Public School system has intellectually abused children and misappropriated public funds through forced taxation.  The unelected school district has done this while tax revenues drop precipitously, students cannot read (yet still pass high school graduation), and the neighborhoods in Baltimore become more unsafe.  Illiteracy is directly tied to crime rates, poverty, and helplessness; yet, the school board in Baltimore cannot even be bothered to allow parents the right of school choice.  What is the role of citizens in Baltimore, the same as it is everywhere else; protect children, scrutinize government, elect different leaders, and watch more closely those elected to protect the rights of all citizens.  “Who will watch the watchmen;” you are the watchers of the watchmen, and you are being lulled to sleep!

In our constitutional republic, we have three co-equal branches of government, the executive, the legislative, and the judicial.  President Biden is reported to be in full swing of destroying the power of the judicial.  Recently the world watched aghast while a wholly unqualified person was measured for a position with the Supreme Court, the court of last resort in American Jurisprudence.  President Biden is on record claiming he would nominate the first black woman to the supreme court; after ensuring that two other more qualified women of color were refused nomination earlier in his career.  Do you sense a hypocrite, liar, and charlatan?  The judge nominated cannot tell the difference between a man and a woman, allows sexual predators to have lighter sentences as she legislated from the bench.  Yet, we, the watchers, are expected to believe she is remarkably qualified and uniquely capable of sitting on the Supreme Court.  I have serious reservations, not because she is a woman or a person of color.  My reservations rest solely upon her record as a judge, which I find detestable at best.Patriotism

Everyone is aware, COVID-19 has plagued the world since late 2019, originating in China, and the costs have been exorbitant and extreme.  Only until the Russia/Ukraine crisis came along did the global media find a new story for wall-to-wall, 24/7 coverage like feckless beasts fighting for a bone.  Repeating only for emphasis, “Where has the opposition party been during COVID-19?”  The watchers, every single one, from the mayor to the US House and Senate, went to sleep and allowed bureaucrats to overcome law and common sense to the detriment of every single citizen.  Where did the watchers go, and why did they leave the citizenry to the incautious, ineffectual, inefficacious, and abortive bureaucrats who fired professionals, broke the law without regard, and still are running free?  Liberties, rights, freedoms, were stolen without consideration, and the opposition party was nowhere to be found.  Indeed, “Who will watch the watchmen?”

The Duty of AmericansOn the topic of China, why is Marco Rubio the only member of the US Congress willing to say aloud what the citizenry is wondering?  2020 closed with China owning $1.9 BILLION or roughly 192,000 acres of prime American farmland.  Want to know where those crops grown on American soil go; I bet you can guess they aren’t traveling to US Supermarkets.  China is still buying prime farmland, and nobody in the US House or Senate is willing to listen to farmers, ranchers, and dairymen about how their land is being purchased by China and they run out of business.  Rep. Dan Newhouse was quoted regarding farmland ownership by Chinese investors as a national security issue.  “The current trend in the United States is leading us toward the creation of a Chinese-owned agricultural land monopoly.  There are currently no federal safeguards against the creation of this monopoly.”  In response to Rep. Dan Newhouse, Rep Grace Meng proclaimed, “Can we honestly say that this Amendment, which singles out one country, won’t have repercussions on Asian-Americans across our country?  Let’s include all of our adversaries.”

Who will watch the watchmen?” An honest and fair question.  I agree that no enemy of America should be allowed to own land inside America.  Not that Saudi Arabia is an enemy to America, but it is important to note not just China is purchasing farms and ranchland in America.  Worse, fresh water in California is regularly purchased to grow alfalfa for shipping to the Saudi Kingdom.  California keeps declaring they are in a drought.  The water crisis continues with or without Saudi purchases through the government’s mismanagement of resources, the need for liquid capital to keep the debt wolves away from the door, and the silly environmental laws.  “Who will watch the watchmen; is apt and very important when discussing national security issues, the acquisitions of foreign entities inside America, and the need to meet citizen needs before foreign markets.quote-mans-inhumanity

On the topic of Biden, specifically the Hunter Biden laptop and the shady deals with China, one has to ask about the timing of China’s massive land purchases ramping up.  At the same time, Joey was Vice President, and Hunter was slipping the “Big Man” money.  The Hunter Biden laptop story has been closely followed since October 2020, and the revelations released in the various news outlets on this story leave me appalled, alarmed, and amazed.  I keep asking myself about the timing, why Joey was so valuable an investment, and the answer lies in his access to Obama.  One of the media pundits discussed how Obama and Clinton are tied into the sale of access by Joey, and not all of the financial analysis is completed even now.  Leaves me asking who got paid and why during the Obama presidency?  A careful records review shows China going on a land purchasing spree simultaneously, and more questions for Secretary of State Clinton need to be addressed immediately!  “Who will watch the watchmen?”Beware of Scam Phone Calls and Emails Disguised as Vendors : The New York City District Council ...

Detective 3The US Constitution, in the 10th Amendment, provides all the authority any citizen needs to demand the watchers scrutinize the government and, if required, replace the watchers.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

We, the citizens, own the direct representative government in America, and it is time for those elected to fear the citizenry.  Not because we have become violent, but because we are firing them, electing new representatives, and holding those removed from office accountable for their mismanagement while in elected office.  Our country is being sold out from under our feet by those elected to office, and it is time they are held accountable before the bar of justice.  Our national security is a hiss and an insult to them, all while they become enriched, and their children funnel money, and I am sick to death of seeing this nepotism.  We, the watchers of the watchmen, deserve answers from transparent and speedy investigations that conclude with people wearing distinctive clothing and permanently disgraced.

Knowledge Check!How have the watchmen become millionaires while holding public office?  This single question should be the watch cry of every single citizen in America until they are all held accountable and disgraced.  You deserve better watchers.  Our children deserve better watchers.  The world deserves better representatives of the people, by the people, and for the people.  Remember this in November!

MRSA and COVID – Pandemic Hype Indeed

Bobblehead DollMRSA is shorthand for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, a medicine-resistant staph infection that swept America beginning in 1990 —gaining massive popularity in 2017 when it killed more than 10,000 people and hospitalized more than 300,000 in the United States alone.  Worse, of those hospitalized, many had to have large sections of their anatomy excised, limbs removed, and other surgical procedures done to cut away the infected flesh.

As for COVID’s death toll, your guess is as good as mine.  We all know the scandal of the emphasized numbers to obtain greater Federal Money and media attention.  We have all been exposed to the hype and hysteria from infection rates that do not equate to those with frank symptoms, and neither of those numbers equating to those needing hospitalization.  Worse, we all have been front-seat with the PCR testing scandal where a tampon, motor oil, and a host of other non-human samples all tested positive (falsely) for COVID.

When the intentional housing of infected patients with healthy residents in long-term care facilities is added to this COVID-drama, they shouldn’t be, for these are victims of murder, and the governors need to be held accountable for their deaths; nothing but confusion in statistics reigns.  Unfortunately, all this and more is just the tip of the iceberg regarding the statistics in the highly politicized COIVD-debacle we are living through.The Duty of Americans

One point of significant contention is the difference between an epidemic and a pandemic.  An epidemic is when a disease (bacterial or viral) spreads over a large geographical area, and many different people simultaneously take ill.  A pandemic takes an epidemic one step further and is a political decision, as the illness spreads across national borders infecting larger numbers of people.  MRSA for all the people killed, in all the different countries, and health systems, has only ever achieved epidemic status.  The Spanish Flu (1918) for all the people killed, in all the different countries infected, only achieved epidemic status.  As a point of reference, the Spanish Flu (1918) is a confusion of terms between pandemic and epidemic, and depending upon the source; you can see the media hype of the flu.  MRSA, like the annual Flu, Chicken Pox, Mumps, Measles, and Rubella, are still just as effective at killing people, and we do not shut down the globe for these viral infections.  Yet, nobody in the world’s governments wants to discuss why COVID has been given this treatment.  But, I digress; let’s get back to MRSA.?u=http3.bp.blogspot.com-CIl2VSm-mmgTZ0wMvH5UGIAAAAAAAAB20QA9_IiyVhYss1600showme_board3.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

Please note, while hospitals are on track to meet a 50% reduction in MRSA and bloodstream infection reductions, this does not mean that other places MRSA pops up will meet these same reductions.  MRSA causes outbreaks under specific conditions, typically in crowded areas with inadequate hygiene, skin-to-skin contact, and shared equipment.  Hence, MRSA is prevalent in gyms, dressing rooms, daycare facilities, and any place where human body fluids can sit on a surface shared by other humans.  Hence, before going further, I urge informed caution where MRSA is concerned.  Ask about decontamination of hard surfaces, cleaning habits, and customs, and when in doubt, ask for more information before participating.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) in partnership with Janssen Research and Development, found some interesting results in protecting the body from MRSA by boosting the body’s immune system.  These results are interesting because until COVID came along, medicine generally wanted to stimulate the body’s immune system first, then look at vaccines and drugs.  But, since COVID came along, doctors want to revert to what created MRSA, an overabundance and reliance upon vaccines and medicines instead of boosting the body’s immune system.Vaccine

Let’s take a trip down memory lane to the 1990s.  MRSA is breaking onto the scene and scaring the living daylights out of medical professionals.  This new staph infection is resistant to every drug known to man and kills rapidly once the skin infection gets into the blood.  Sepsis deaths which had been trending down for a decade, were spiking.  People went to the hospital for a routine checkup and died of skin infections horribly a few days later.  Research quickly discovers this is a staph infection, quickly realizes it is drug-resistant, and new practices are needed in cleaning and disinfecting to prevent this from spreading.  But, the first step was to boost the body’s natural immunity.  Vitamin C, D, E, and Fish Oils, were discussed as options to be added to some diets.  Exercise, diet, and weight loss became much more important topics, and the reason why was witnessed on the evening news.  We saw patients lose limbs; a patient lost their nose; a patient went swimming in a pond and died horribly shortly thereafter.Pressure Injuries - Example

I mention MRSA because common sense, research, and boosting the body’s immune system work, as historical data supports, to protect communities from large health problems and viral outbreaks.  Masks, isolation, expensive government mandates and vaccines, do not protect communities from health problems.  Many media pundits have cited the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic as comparative to COVID.  What’s the difference, the most significant difference between 1918s Spanish Flu and 2020 COVID, government interference, and media hyperventilation!

What’s the difference between the ongoing MRSA battle, which claims hundreds of thousands of lives annually in the United States and millions of lives globally, and COVID?  Government intrusion and media hyperventilation.  Back in the 1990s, Dr. Fauci was still relatively unknown in the pantheons of NIH and was still misinforming about AIDS/HIV.  By 2018, Dr. Fauci has reached the pinnacle of his lackluster career, and he needs a pandemic to come along to help his career into the spotlight of historical immortality.  In the 1990s, the president was a Clinton, and the media adored his every breath.  In 2016 the president was detested by the media, and a solution to his popularity needed to be generated.Apathy

MRSA has killed and maimed more people globally than COVID ever will; yet, MRSA, while being more deadly and dangerous, is relatively unknown outside medical centers, and the media hypes about COVID non-stop.  Ever stop to ask yourself why?  Common sense medicine is still the best method for preventing and healing after an MRSA infection.  It would be the same for COVID except for the political environment that shut down inexpensive and effective drugs.  Ever stop to ask yourself why?

The Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP) has a graph of MRSA infection rates by country reporting.  Romania is on top with the worst rates of hospitalized MRSA, Iceland has the best rates of non-infection, and the numbers appear to be current as of 2004.  Yes, that data is 17 years or so old and can be taken with a grain of salt.  However, it does provide an interesting view on MRSA infections.  Not all MRSA infections are reported equally.Plato 3

The main MRSA reported and tracked are those where the infection can be reliably proved to have originated in a hospital—leaving infections from gyms, locker rooms, sports equipment, daycare centers, schools, etc., all open for speculation and wonder.  Not good policy on something this dangerous and easily spread from person to person.  I worked in a call center that was threatened with being shut down if infectious pink eye (a staph infection) was not brought under control.  Pink-eye was spread around that call center so often, and so prevalently, the health department threatened drastic and dire measures if the business did not take action.  Yet, MRSA, another staph infection, isn’t even tracked and reported.  Ever ask yourself why?  Ever wonder why some infections and communicable diseases are reported to death and others never even get mentioned?

Knowledge Check!Please let me repeat myself, and I repeat myself only for emphasis; we live in a world of risk.  The government, any government, cannot control the risk of living.  We, the citizenry, should never expect the government to attempt to control the risks of living, for that is the road of tyranny and oppression.  The government is only a tool; the tool should be used sparingly and only in times of greatest need for the greatest good of all citizens.  When the tool of government is overused, tyranny and oppression are the only results, and the citizens will weep in frustration and anger at the governments’ largesse!  MRSA is a risk we undertake to enjoy a social activity, exercising in a gym.  MRSA is an activity we expose our children to when we send them to school, for the benefits outweigh the potential risks.  The risks of runaway government are being felt right now; what are we willing to do to fix that problem?

NO MORE BS: Thieves and Robbers Beware!

The Duty of AmericansWith all the verified fraud, the stolen Dominion voting machines that have escaped a forensic audit and investigation, and the postulating by the liberals in America, let us agree that the 2020 Elections have been a farrago, a hodgepodge, and a producer of confusion and disarray to equal no election in history.  Add in the terrorists of the liberal leftists BLM, ANTIFA, etc. and America has seen enough!

I know not the source, but there is a quote I use quite frequently that is appropriate here:

“There is nothing more dangerous than an honest man who has been betrayed!”

I am an honest man betrayed!  Biden/Harris betrayed America by accepting the Presidency when they knew they committed fraud, their minions committed fraud, and their lackeys have committed fraud.  Pelosi has constantly betrayed America, ever since her detestable grudge became public where she fought to impeach a sitting president, acted the 2-year-old having a fit as she ripped up the President’s State of the Union Address on live TV, and her continuous rebellion against the American people by refusing to pass a budget, clean up DC politics, and act like an adult Majority Speaker of the US House of Representatives!  This list of people betraying America for personal gain include Sen. Romney, Sen. McCain, Pres. Obama, the Clinton’s, and so many more, including local mayors, county boards, state legislators, and governors.

PatriotismThe excuses provided by the left are paper-thin and not even useful for toilet paper.  Alexandre Dumas, “The Three-Musketeers,” had the following to add:

“A rogue does not laugh in the same way that an honest man does; a hypocrite does not shed the same sort of tears as fall from the eyes of a man of good faith.  All falsehood is a mask, and however well made the mask may be, with a little attention we may always succeed in distinguishing it from the true face.”

How may a person who is unsure of the rogue and the honest man?  Well, an example may help, President Obama held a “Beer Summit” after a police officer did his job, and the President personally accused the officer of neglect and racism.  How would a person tell whether President Obama was faking the mask of kindness at the “Beer Summit,” look to his words after every other racial shooting incident America suffered after the Professor Henry Louis Gates controversy to the end of his presidential reign.  The USA Today reported how the “Beer Summit” derailed the president where race and policing crossed.  In short, the answer is to look to the person’s words and works to see whether they are true, honest, and brave, or craven, cowardly, and a hypocrite.

What is a person to do in the coming months; the answer comes from Mark Twain:

In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated, and scorned.  When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.”

Stand ye patriots, stand!  Stand like a rock wall in the middle of a farmer’s field.  Unmovable, unshakable, immobile, firm, and daunting to any who would take you down.  General Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson provided a word needed this season, while speaking to Captain John D. Imboden.

Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. Captain, that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave.

Let us not worry about death, let us worry about being brave in this our season of distress and grief at the hands of the enemies of America.  We the honest men and women of America must stand, bravely against the fiery darts, slings, and arrows of the liberal leftist horde until America is redeemed or America falls an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.

Stand; do not allow the leftists to suck you into their designs and strategies.  Stand; be counted and be counted upon to hold up those who might not be as strong physically or mentally as you.  Stand; count upon your faith, your religion, and your beliefs and the America you know, and love will not fail.  Stand; and watch the cowards try and gather, then disperse like clouds before a mighty wind.  Stand; be firm in your knowledge, keep learning, keep sharing through non-social media means, and you cannot fail, even if the devil himself decides to fight for the liberal leftists, he cannot win.  Stand; unified, overlooking the liberal lines that try to divide and separate.

Finest HourI conclude with the plea, do not allow history to be forgotten or militarized against you.  History is the ground upon which you will stand on the shoulders of giants, when you know the history.  The liberal left has dedicated a lot of energy, resources, and manpower to removing history.  Fight them without quarter, without mercy, and without regard for their “delicate sensibilities.”  If you track back far enough, you will find both criminals, sluggards, saviors, and saints in every single person’s family tree.  Know your history, share your history, include references that are reputable, and repeat historical facts that spur your impetus into motivation.

If social media continues to hinder, censor, and deny First Amendment Rights, GREAT!  If Big Tech continues to thwart and hinder, scold, and censor without due diligence and due process, GREAT!  It means we are winning; continue to stand!  Ours is not yet a war of swords and pistols, but of words and ideas.  Pray the battle does not become one of swords and pistols; but fight using truth, history, ideals that draw people to your cause, and when the liberals come toe-to-toe, look them dead in the eye with confidence, conviction, and your personal credo.
