President Trump was wrong about one thing…


Looking at the Record

President Trump Was Right About Some Things…

Before we look at what President Trump was completely wrong about and why, it is only fair to check out what he got right.

Although President Trump made many enemies by working tirelessly to block funding to Planned Parenthood, I am placing this as the number one thing he did that was right. While there are those who do not consider this something he did right, pro-life Christians like myself,  consider this very right. 

President Trump was right about how to bring jobs back to the USA. During Trump’s first three years, from January 2017 through January 2020, the nation added 6,585,000 jobs, an increase of 4.5%.

The President was right when he said a vaccine would be available before the year 2020 ended.

President Trump’s China policy was right.  Joe Biden’s nominee for secretary of state Tony Blinken said that President Trump “was right” to take a “tougher approach to China.” Most in Washington agree and outside as well, agree. President Trump’s Middle East policy was not only right, it was phenomenal!

That ‘a well built border wall will end the problem America has long had with illegals crossing our southern border’ was one of President Trumps’s campaign promises that was rapidly becoming a reality. The wall was effective. Trump was right.

‘The Future Act’ that President Trump signed has allocated more funding to historically black colleges and universities than any President has done before. In May 2017, President Trump promised “unwavering support” for the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). In December 2019, President Trump signed a bipartisan bill, known as the FUTURE Act. This is certainly something he did that is right.

President Trump moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and proposed a peace plan that substituted economic development for immediate Palestinian statehood. Traditional experts feared that Trump’s policies would ignite regional conflict. Instead, if anything, the region has calmed. First the United Arab Emirates, then Bahrain and Sudan, and most recently Morocco have opened diplomatic relations with Israel. It’s now possible to fly direct from Tel Aviv to Dubai, overflying Saudi Arabia.

President Trump was right about his decision to stop sending money to Iran and instead go after Soleimani. He brought long-delayed justice to Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani, who had orchestrated so many acts of terrorism. Experts feared that the killing of Soleimani would trigger the direst of consequences. Instead, the Iranian regime itself halted the cycle of retaliation!

President Trump’s 2017 tax bill actually helped those Americans in the lower income bracket despite what some predicted. The 2017 tax bill did ease the tax burden for many low-income earners. Before the tax bill, the standard deduction for taxpayers was $6,350 for single people, $9,350 for heads of household, and $12,700 for married couples. (There was also a personal exemption of $4,050.) Beyond that protected amount, low-income taxpayers could deduct additional amounts—if they kept proper records. With Trump’s bill, the standard deduction was almost doubled : For income earned in 2020, a single person pays no income tax on their first $12,400, heads of household on their first $18,650, and married couples on their first $24,800.

Under the Trump administration’s First Step prison-reform proposal sentences will be reduced for certain drug offenses. The program makes it easier for non-violent prisoners to qualify for early release, and be closer to their home. Women in prison will also receive sanitary products free of cost. This program offers much needed reform and is something very right done by the Trump administration.

President Trump was right when he said his phones were wire-tapped and the opposition spied on his campaign. We now know that Trump was right…

In May, declassified Department of Justice (DOJ) documents showed that President Obama was aware of the details of wiretapped conversations of then-incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak back in December 2016. Joe Biden was also aware, and was present at a meeting discussing it.

“On January 5, 2017, Yates attended an Oval Office meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Vice President Joe Biden, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, according to the newly declassified documents, including an FD-302 FBI witness report,” reported Fox News’ Gregg Re at the time. “They were discussing Russian election interference, along with national security adviser Susan Rice and other members of the national security council.”

President Trump was right when he said emphatically Russia was not involved in aiding his campaign.

“The entire investigation of Trump and his associates was based on Russian disinformation, and the FBI “used Russia’s meddling with the 2016 election as a pretext to investigate Donald Trump” and those around him.”

“According to handwritten notes from Peter Strzok, it was Biden who suggested using the Logan Act to target Michael Flynn.” Taken from: Obama and Biden Knew About Spying on The Trump Campaign 

With many good and right decisions, most who read this will agree that none of these achievements brought greatness!

 Was the President Wrong?

Good policies are never wrong, but depending upon a policy or a president is wrong because…

Only the Lord can save America and/or make America great!

Sadly Trump Was Wrong When He Said…

“…We are born free, and we will stay free. We will never be a Socialist country.”

Our freedom and our safety depends upon the Lord our God. I hope that America does not lose all freedom and I know socialism has never been successful. Still our future depends, not on who is president or upon a person. In America we have always been “of the people, by the people, and for the people,” however, this will remain only so long as we look to our Maker and obey Him. 

“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭14:34‬ ‭KJV‬‬

As for President Trump, His campaign slogan to “Make America Great Again” is a promise that hinges upon America’s willingness to humble herself before God, because our greatness depends upon our obedience to God and His Word!

The quoted statements above were made prior to the release of the Covid virus and the resulting fiasco on November 3rd. With the mail-in voting and weeks following we have learned that things can change very quickly… Freedom is fragile. Even the former President is no longer free to speak on social media. Many of us are no longer free to operate a business or post on social media. Many students are not free to attend school. We are not free to attend certain events. We are ruled more by executive orders than by a representative government, News is highly edited and now efforts are being made in Congress to control what media is allowed in our country. We are not free if what we are allowed to view, read, or hear is controlled by Washington! 

“Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney, both from California, sent letters to television content providers such as AT&T, Roku, Comcast, and Verizon asking them why they carried the three “purported” news outlets that they say function as “misinformation rumor mills and conspiracy theory hotbeds that produce content that leads to real harm.”

Freedom is a right given by our Creator and we will enjoy it only so long as our Creator permits.

Mandates are the new normal. For these reasons, I say that President Trump was very wrong when he made the above statement and similar statements.

Please pray that our nation will return to obeying Christ and His righteousness so that He might make America great. It is only in Christ that we will find freedom.

Should the FDA Have Allowed the Use Of Hydroxychloroquine to treat Covid?


A COMPARISON STUDY OF INDIA VS USA

In the nation of India, Hydroxychloroquine was used early on to treat and or prevent Covid. Niharika Sharma reports that “On Feb. 2, the government informed parliament (pdf) that it has distributed 111.6 million pills of hydroxychloroquine or HCQ. The medicine is used for the treatment of autoimmune diseases or malaria.” 

Meanwhile, in the USA, the FDA continues to refuse to place the drug on the approved list for treatment of Covid.

The United States is about 3 times bigger than India.

India is approximately 3,287,263 sq km, while United States is approximately 9,833,517 sq km, making United States 199% larger than India. Meanwhile, the population of India is ~1.3 billion people (993.5 million fewer people live in United States). One would expect the crowded conditions of India to cause Covid to spread rapidly and many more lives be lost.

MAP TRACK: COVID DEATHS AROUND THE WORLD 

(Updated February 2021)

Country/place Reported deaths Deaths, last 7 days Deaths per 100,000
United States 512,832 15,548 155
Brazil 252,835 9,378 119
Mexico 184,474 6,366 143
India 156,938 827 11

The information presented here seems to me to indicate that the FDA and WHO made a terrible mistake in not approving Hydroxychloroquine for Covid. This is not a scientific study and there may be other reasons India has outperformed other nations. Whatever the reason, I ask myself, “Why are we not seeking to learn what they are doing right and applying those therapies here?”

FOLLOWING CHRIST


Where Are We Headed?

There are seventeen instances of Christ commanding those who will be His disciples to “follow” Him. The most often quoted is…

And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” Mark 8:34

We are told if we belong to Him we will follow Him…

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:..John 10:27

Do we sometimes forget that following Jesus means we are headed toward suffering?

Christ steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, even knowing pain, agony, suffering, and death in the form of the cross of Calvary awaited Him there.

If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. John 12:26

What Did Jesus Know?

Jesus knew all things, including what lay beyond the cross. After asking the young man we refer to as the rich, young ruler to sell his worldly treasures, Jesus told the man that at the end of the journey…

…thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me. Luke 18:22

Jesus asked us to follow Him knowing that there will be tribulation, suffering, and for some a cross, because He knew the rest of the story. Satan, the Jews, the Romans, and even Christ’s disciples looked at the cross and saw a beaten, defeated man. But Jesus knew all along that this wasn’t the end. This wasn’t defeat. This wasn’t a loss. Christ’s death on the cross was the opposite of those things. The King of glory was willing to leave His estate and be made lower than the angels He had created for one purpose…so that we might be brought into His kingdom!

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, now crowned with glory and honor because He suffered death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone. In bringing many sons to glory… Hebrews 2:9-10

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore He says: “When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men.” Ephesians 4:7-8

Will You Also Go Away?

The Jews and some of Jesus’s disciples were offended when He spoke plainly to them about His body being a sacrifice. 

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst…I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world…From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? John 6:35, 51, 66-67

It is actually the same today. We must be willing to receive Christ as the Passover Lamb was received or we are not covered. This is what we agree to when we follow Him. 

We Walk By Faith

When we follow Christ we sometimes forget that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem. We forget how He suffered. We forget that He warned us in this world we will have tribulation. This year has been a reminder. Many have suffered. A national pandemic has caused fear and panic. Death has touched many families, including mine. Still I believe Him when He says…

I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world!” John 16:33

Are You Holding Steady?


Steady – firmly fixed, supported, or balanced; not shaking or moving.

Our Daily Bread ministries has a February devotional that quotes Harriet Tubman as saying, “I always told God, I’m going to hold steady on you, and you’ve got to see me through.”

Harriet Tubman

History has shown that God led Ms Tubman and she is a heroic, historical person who will not be soon forgotten. She set a great example!

Seaman are well acquainted with the term, “Steady as she goes.” Hold steady. In uncertain times, holding steady is important. God doesn’t change. What God has declared is good Has not changed. 

In His word we are taught that…

Christians Are To Remain Steadfast

“Now this I say, brethren …Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:50-58‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9

WHO WILL ENDURE TO THE END

The Faith of Others Encourages God’s People

The eleventh chapter of the book of Hebrews is a book that tells us of the men of faith who came before us. Then in the first verse of chapter twelve we see the word, therefore. Because so many have demonstrated faith read what God wants us to do!

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…Hebrews 12:1

Harriet Tubman was given the job of helping those who had been taken as slaves reach freedom. This was her race. The apostle Paul’s race was to share the gospel with gentiles. Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s race was to serve as a Lutheran pastor and risk all by becoming a member of the German Resistance. Throughout history men and women of faith have carried the gospel, prayed, ministered to the sick and suffering, and followed Christ to do the work. Those who remained ‘steady’ made a difference and many of them are known by their names today because of their steadfastness. 

DEFENDING THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

HEROES OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

In these uncertain times Paul’s words are great advice…

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58

Christians, let us remain faithful and steady!

AS THE MATTER MAY REQUIRE…


Lately, during the Covid crises, political unrest, and personal loss, even prayer has been difficult. Certainly people everywhere have prayed for this crises to end and that life might return to normal. Yet the crises has continued and the divisions in our nation grow deeper. Recently  I reread these words of wise King Solomon and they truly helped me know that we should pray that God will act AS THE MATTER MAY REQUIRE…

“And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the Lord, be nigh unto the Lord our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times, as the matter shall require: That all the people of the earth may know that the Lord is God, and that there is none else.”
‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭8:59-60‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Whom have I in heaven but You?
And on earth I desire no one besides You. Psalm 73:25

It is God who gives us wisdom and only He knows truly how to act “as the matter may require.” May we trust Him to bring healing and peace to our nation and world according to His purposes!

For I know the plans I have for you, declares YHVH , plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

God sent His Son and our hope is ‘in Christ…’

“But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:7-9‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Rule by Executive Order – Does the Constitution Leave Us Unprotected?


245 Years Later – What Happened to ‘We the People?’

America has been called the land of the free and the home of the brave for well over 200 years.

Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin is a disgrace to any people. Proverbs 14:34

Most Americans grew up believing we have a safety net in our Constitutional government. Sadly we have taken our GOD GIVEN freedoms for granted. We have believed power resided in “We the People” while forgetting these freedoms exists only because we “are endowed by our Creator” with certain rights. “Elections have consequences” declared Barrack Obama. When the consequences of elections meant he could not push his agenda through Congress, he said, “I will use my pen and a phone to take on Congress.” Obama did just that and it worked for him…until, election time rolled around again.

Rule By Executive Order

Rule by executive order means Congress is irrelevant!

The election of people who wanted power to rest in their hands meant, over time, ways have been found to circumvent rule by Representative government.

When Obama, and Bush before him to an extent, realized they could rule with pen and a phone, our balance of power shifted.

 If a politician can keep his or her party in office, executive orders stay in place. The polls said Hillary and the Democrats would win in 2016. The polls were wrong. The election went to Donald Trump and suddenly Obama’s executive orders were reversed by a non-establishment President who announced he would not be owned by anyone, but would instead work for the American people and he did something no politician has done in years…he started keeping, or attempting to keep, his campaign promises! Admittedly, he wasn’t 100% successful. There was, however, something those who voted for him realized. President Donald Trump attempted to keep every promise.

President Trump had a huge problem to overcome. His problem was another first. He had a ‘Resistance’ movement working against him at every turn. The man whose executive orders were reversed, wasn’t happy. Those who could not control Donald Trump worked against him. Established, career politicians were against him. So, he did what Barrack Obama had done. He began to rule by executive order. His policies were successful. The stock market soared. The economy made an astonishing recovery. Housing was booming. Even with constant resistance, Trump was enormously successful and a shoo-in to win a second term. However, as stated earlier…

Rule by executive order means Congress is irrelevant.

What Happens to ‘We The People?’

As it turns out, we are less relevant than Congress. The 2020 election has taught us that any power vested in the people can be taken away with the stroke of a pen or the coming of a national ‘crises.’ Enter from Wuhan China a virus named Covid…2020 brought, either accidentally or intentionally, God knows, the event called the 2020 Covid pandemic and we see how little control we have. Suddenly the WHO, the FDA, and state governors control our lives. Using the motto, “Never let a good crises go to waste” the Democrats in Congress, aided and abetted by media, decide we cannot have a traditional election. Ballots would be mailed out in mass and mailed in with no dead-lines. Irregularities would not be investigated and poll watchers would be required to stand six feet away from the tables where ballots were being counted. Whistleblowers would be discredited and even polling officials would be slandered by those who dislike President Trump. Indeed, believing those who said the election was stolen over those who claimed no fraud became an impeachable offense. 

When Americans began to point out election irregularities, social media began to shut them down.

Biden Is President 

Biden, in a setting eerily like a Communist dictatorship, took office on January 20, 2021. Few American citizens attended the inauguration. A strong military presence was there along with government officials and the family members. The military was not really needed, except for show, as Trump supporters held a planned in advance rally seeing a still popular president off and others welcoming him to Florida. Large crowds attended.

Executive Orders vs Constitutional Republic

The Hill – By His Own Definition

Immediately after his inauguration, Biden began to destroy all that President Trump had accomplished. The only thing he was unable to undo immediately is the appointment of Conservative judges, but he promises Socialist that he will overcome this by packing the courts. Also, Democrats are promised the elections established by our founding fathers will be altered so that large cities and states alone will be represented in the future. 

SEE: ENDING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE 

What Does the Future Hold For Free Market Conservatives?

I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. If I close the sky so there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send a plague among My people, and if My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 13-14

President Trump said we will not give America over to Socialism. Perhaps this is the one thing he was very wrong about. It appears Marxist/Socialist/Communist ideology is popular with those who have control. Their control will be not be threatened by elections if the courts are packed and the Electoral College is abolished. If fraud isn’t questioned and large populated areas have all the power, elections will be for show much as the inauguration was. At first it appeared to me there is nothing short of a revolution that will give power back to the people. Then I heard a better idea.

Article V of the Constitution- Convention of States

No Constitution will protect a nation when the reproach of God falls on that nation. No president can make America great. God can and hopefully will help us if we seek His face and His righteousness which is found ONLY in Christ.

Constitutional scholar Dr. John Eastman recently appeared on Newsmax recently, and he explained — in no uncertain terms — that a Convention of States is the only way we can check federal power.

“The federal government has expanded beyond measure and beyond belief,” he said. “And I think the only remedy still available to us is a Convention of the States.”

Follow the link if you would like to get involved and sign the petition, but remember our true hope…

“But blessed are those who trust in the LORD
and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. Jeremiah 17:7

Inauguration Day –


The Inauguration of Joseph Biden

January 20,2021

Throughout our history Inauguration Day has been a time of celebration and coming together. We certainly have the right to attend this event regardless of our party affiliations or for whom we voted. The inauguration of 2016 was different, however, and 2020 promises to be dangerous for Conservatives and Trump supporters. This is an Inauguration we need to avoid!

President Trump was met with “Resistance” on the day of his inauguration.

Violence was played down by media in 2016…yet

Violence by the left marred the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump.

Media Focuses On Violence That Has Not Occurred in 2021

Seventy-five million+ Americans who did not vote for Biden need to be on high alert. Violence appears to be planned and played up by CNN and other leftist media prior to Biden’s election. Trump supporters will be blamed.

PRESIDENT TRUMP CALLS FOR PEACE DURING TRANSITION!

CNN base their reporting on a conspiracy theory and a group called Qanon. The Anon stands for anonymous and that fully discredits any group in my world. There may be a time when due to the current silencing of Conservatives, we may have to speak anonymously, but for now we do not! Few, if any, true Conservatives know anything about this group. We do not know who they really are, nor do we share any plans of violence. CNN seems to be telling their viewers that President Trump speaks in a “coded message” to address them. None of this is rational, proven and certainly the vast majority of Trump supporters have zero information about these people. They may be leftist agitators for all I know. I would guess that is likely. When people on the Internet do not show their faces or reveal their names, I dismiss them.

At any rate, if you support MAGA, President Trump, and peace through strength please make it known that you (we) will not be in Washington DC for Biden’s Inauguration! We need to stay far away from this inauguration and the violence CNN promises.

Democrats carried signs in Washington at Trump’s inauguration that read, “Not My President.” Trump didn’t say that. He fought for all Americans. Truly this time, we need to understand that carrying a sign and/or protesting doesn’t prove anything. If you comprehend that Trump supporters will be blamed for any group’s violence, know that the loudest voice we can have is absolute silence during this inauguration. We must stay away from Washington DC. Let us allow Biden’s people, (after all 80,000,000 voted for him,)🤫 to fill those streets. Hopefully, if rioters disguise themselves as Trump supporters not one Conservative will be among their ranks. Left-wing media may not report it, but they will know and we will know.

Remembering Naomi…


The Trouble With a Pity Party

You probably have heard already that the trouble with a pity party is there are no refreshments and no one attends except you. I know that, but that didn’t keep me from having one recently. The year of Covid has taken its toll. Then my heart was broken when my precious mother went home to be with the Lord. Life changed and I miss my Mom. Why was God allowing all these things in 2020?

God then reminded me that Jesus has plainly told us…

I have spoken these things to you so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation. But take courage; I have overcome the world.”
 John 16:33

Pity parties are not what He wants for us. Christ said, “IN ME…” This is where we find peace and safety. He told us in advance that even though we will have tribulation we are to have peace, but that peace is only found ‘in Christ.” Then Christ reminded me of Naomi.

I May Forget – God Does Not Forget

“And Elimelech Naomi’s husband died; and she was left, and her two sons. And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years. And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.”
‭‭Ruth‬ ‭1:3-5‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Naomi had a tremendous loss. Yet it was not that God had forgotten or abandoned her. God was clearly in control and providing and through the descendant of Ruth, Naomi’s faithful daughter-in-law who married Boaz, her kinsman/redeemer, our Savior was born into the world.

“The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren; And Judah begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; And Salmon begat Booz of Rahab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse…And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭1:1-5, 16‬ ‭KJV‬‬

When Adversity Comes, Then What?

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4

As we navigate the Covid pandemic, uncertain political times, and the tribulations of this world, may we learn to count it all joy! God is love! He has plans for each of us! 

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD (YHVH), plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

Christ is the hope He has given us.

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;
1 Timothy 1:1

My hope is ‘in Christ.’

Impeachment claims – An Infringement on Free Speech


The House of Representatives impeached President Trump on charges of incitement of insurrection because of a speech. My conclusion is the House cannot defend their actions. His speech called for peaceful, patriotic support  because the election was not legal in many states. Speech is protected. Also, the group who invaded the Capitol 1) planned it days before the speech was made that the Representative’s claim incited the insurrection. 2) some of those invading were not Trump supporters but rather Trump haters who relished seeing him impeached 3) the Capitol police knew about the riot plans in advance and chose to do nothing. Their lack of action could be construed as aiding and abetting the criminals. Please check for yourself and then decide.

Six Days Prior to Biden’s Taking Over 

The purpose of this post is to critique the work of the 116th Congress on January 14, 2021, six days before the planned inauguration of Joe Biden.

I suggest that Americans should ask, “Are the allegations  of the Democrats substantiated by the actions of President Donald  J. Trump? Did the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi do due diligence to investigate the charges prior to impeaching? Also, as Americans who are ruled by the Constitution, will we stand by silently when our government calls making a statement that an election was stolen a “high crime” and thus punishing the speaker, therein ignoring their first amendment rights?”

Many are comparing the President’s statements and actions to those  of other Democrats in an effort  to prove that what President Trump did pales in comparison. I prefer to ignore all similar or worse behavior by Democrats and rather examine if the claims can be substantiated and if they violated our Constitution. I want to look at what we know actually happened. A starting point is to look at the:

Articles of Impeachment 

The articles begin by stating:
“1 Resolved, That Donald John Trump, President of the
2 United States, is impeached for high crimes and mis-
3 demeanors and that the following article of impeachment
4 be exhibited to the United States Senate:” 

We see immediately that even these representatives comprehend that President Trump HAS NOT committed Treason or Bribery. They are, however, claiming he committed a “high crime.” Here is their reiteration of the “high crime:

‘In his conduct of
9 the office of President of the United States—and in viola-
10 tion of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the of-
11 fice of President of the United States and, to the best of
12 his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution
13 of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional
14 duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed—
15 Donald John Trump engaged in high Crimes and Mis-
16 demeanors by willfully inciting violence against the Gov-
17 ernment of the United States, in that:
18 On January 6, 2021, pursuant to the Twelfth
19 Amendment of the United States Constitution, the Vice
20 President of the United States, the House of Representa-
21 tives, and the Senate met at the United States Capitol
22 for a Joint Session of Congress to count the votes of the
23 Electoral College. Shortly before the Joint Session com-
24 menced, President Trump addressed a crowd of his polit-
25 ical supporters nearby. There, he reiterated false claims
26 that ‘‘we won this election, and we won it by a landslide’’.’

According to Representatives who are supposed to represent all constituents, it was a high crime, inciting violence, and a failure to carry out his duties as president for President Trump to say in his speech that he “won in a landslide” and also, for him to say that “mail-in voting led to massive voter fraud.”

Here Is What One Must Believe 

In their decision it becomes a high crime to state what one believes, especially if it contradicts Democrats. We know that Trump and his supporters based their beliefs on all swing states stopping the counting on election night when President Trump held a sizable lead and American citizens who were willing to come forward and risk everything to become Whistleblowers.  Also, poll watchers reported massive irregularities that millions believed needed to be investigated. Lists were provided of names of people who voted who are deceased and others stated that massive fraud was prevalent. The alleged “crime” the House cited was committed when President Trump chose to believe these common Americans over Democrat politicians or establishment officials. The articles further stated:

1 He also willfully made statements that encouraged—and
2 foreseeably resulted in—imminent lawless action at the
3 Capitol. Incited by President Trump, a mob unlawfully
4 breached the Capitol, injured law enforcement personnel,
5 menaced Members of Congress and the Vice President,
6 interfered with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional
7 duty to certify the election results, and engaged in violent,
8 deadly, destructive, and seditious acts.

Keep in mind that President Donald Trump isn’t being accused of an action of insurrection. He is being accused of causing others to commit an action with words in a speech. (The actual statements were not included as evidence and were not presented simply because in today’s America, those in power do not seem concerned or will not allow themselves to be bothered by actual evidence.) Also, they ignore a timeline that shows the President was speaking when the invasion occurred and he at no time suggested protesters invade the Capitol. Rather than argue about the speech, itself, the full transcript can be read or heard at Arkansas online.

The third and last part of Trump’s enumerated “High Crimes” is one sentence taken from a conference call Trump made to Georgia officials. The articles state:

President Trump’s conduct on January 6, 2021 was
10 consistent with his prior efforts to subvert and obstruct
11 the certification of the results of the 2020 presidential
12 election. Those prior efforts include, but are not limited
13 to, a phone call on January 2, 2021, in which President
14 Trump urged Georgia Secretary of State Brad
15 Raffensperger to ‘‘find’’ enough votes to overturn the
16 Georgia presidential election results and threatened Mr.
17 Raffensperger if he failed to do so.
18 In all of this, President Trump gravely endangered
19 the security of the United States and its institutions of
20 government. He threatened the integrity of the democratic
21 system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power,
22 and imperiled a coordinate branch of government. He
23 thereby betrayed his trust as President, to the manifest
24 injury of the people of the United States.

The phone call addresses voter fraud, stolen votes, and how the steal was accomplished in the state of GA. It seems apparent that rather than asking Raffensperger to steal votes for him, he is asking him to recover the thousands of votes that were stolen from him. The phone call is still on-line for all to hear.

Quotes From the President’s Speech.

  • It’s just a great honor to have this kind of crowd and to be before you and hundreds of thousands of American patriots who are committed to the honesty of our elections and the integrity of our glorious Republic.
  • Let us peacefully and patriotically walk down to the Capitol” to “cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women.”
  • We will never give up. We will never concede. It doesn’t happen. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved. 
  • Almost 75 million people voted for our campaign, the most of any incumbent president by far in the history of our country; 12 million more than four years ago.

This impeachment seems to be a rushed effort to harm a political opponent and it feels very ominous and threatening to those of us who care about free speech, equal justice under the law, and freedom from corruption. However, feelings are not of importance in this situation. What is is of utmost importance is the TRUTH. Democrats and powerful people in the establishment have declared Biden won the election,  therefore that is declared to be ‘truth.’ No one at this time is being allowed to question this or present any evidence to suggest otherwise. There are a few states where dissension has been allowed and a few people who perpetrated election fraud have been charged, but for most in this post-truth era of America, where rather than investigate fraud, officials certify their choice, we are not allowed to question or comment if we do not accept what they have declared as “truth.” Not even if you are the President of the United States and millions of people agree with you.

Millions believe the election was stolen, but perhaps this stealing of our first amendment right to say so is the biggest steal of all.

Americans Love ❤️ Freedom! 🇺🇸 Or Do They?


The American Legacy – FREEDOM 

America has been known as the beacon, the light on a hill. Poet Emma Lazarus wrote the lines, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” which are inscribed on the pedestal on which the Statue of Liberty stands. 

Lockdowns, Covid, Losses

Nothing has been able to shake our faith in or to infringe upon freedom in America as much as those who have adopted the slogan, Never Let a good crises go to waste. For eleven years prior to Covid, there were those who began to experiment with the idea of ending certain human rights Americans have enjoyed over 200 years. Second Amendment rights have long been targeted, but most Americans held first Amendment rights as more sacred. The first amendment enumerates these rights:

 Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” 

Recently the idea that these rights may only belong to a chosen few has become open for debate. Never in our history has anyone dared suggest this before. 

Free Speech was brought into question when government schools were allowed to teach our youth they have a right never to be offended. To accomplish this, speech must be controlled. To enable students, free speech zones were provided in many universities. Only in a free speech zone was non-politically correct ideas allowed to be aired and only there could Christians speak of salvation in Christ. From this has evolved into the era where big tech has begun censoring anyone who disagrees with their agenda, even now they censor the President of the United States.

Covid has been a crises that has presented new opportunities for, well, for opportunists who have been looking to curtail first amendment freedoms for some time. Fear was the catalyst that allowed freedom loving Americans to accept mandates that clearly violate the first amendment. Small businesses and churches have been shut down while large chain outfits and left-wing protesters were free to live as they pleased. Some have the right to assemble peacefully. Others, mostly churches and small business owners, do not. This order was eventually extended to large family groups as well. Those who never understood what America’s exceptionalism actually was/is and who prefer globalism finally were seeing a path to end individual rights and choose collectivism and government control over first amendment rights.

American Exceptionalism- A Revolutionary Idea

Even prior to 1776, pilgrims and pioneers who came to America were determined that power would be invested in the common people, not those in control of the government. Not only that, these rights were given to us by our Creator/God. Man does not give us freedom and rights, therefore man has no power to take freedom or rights away. This was unheard of in the world at that time. THIS CONCEPT IS AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM.

Our Constitution placing power in the hands of the governed because God created men to be equal – that is what is exceptional.

John Locke was an early Englishman who influenced American thinkers with the idea that individuals have rights. Those who came to America believing that mankind is endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights believed that government of, by, and for the people could actually work because all men are created and therefore equal. Because we have seen this actually work for over 200 years, it doesn’t sound so revolutionary anymore. We have come to take freedom for granted.

Are You Ready To Give It All Away?

America has been a haven, a beacon to the tired and weary. For generations immigrants came here legally through our system of immigration. Only when many began to by-pass the legal method, to refuse to come through the door but to come in another way, did immigration become controversial. At first it was no problem. Every American understood to remain sovereign a nation must maintain borders. But when those who prefer no American sovereignty began successfully to teach our children that countries do not need borders, that it is wrong to have requirements for entering a nation, slowly our youth began to believe a nation can exist without borders.

Without borders we will lose our identity.

Slowly all the ideas that led to America’s exceptionalism have been eroded. When Donald Trump, (who strongly believes in America, freedom, and exceptionalism) became enormously popular with millions of common people, the establishment, big tech, and those who were taught exceptionalism is wrong immediately became obsessed with the idea of destroying him. Their obsession became known as Trump Derangement Syndrome and it is frequently severe.

These questions must be answered now:

Are you willing to give it up? Can you imagine a world without a free America? Is a weakened America really what the world needs? Will you be happier with government regulating your speech and your ability to travel and worship?
