It Is Called An Epiphany

It Is Called An Epiphany

January 15, 2022

This past week, freedom won a significant battle as the Biden Administration was dealt a significant blow by the Supreme Court, which ruled that the federal government's COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandate for private businesses was unconstitutional, and overstepped the bounds of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration. 

While this ruling was a victory for conservatives, it cannot overshadow the evil that Biden and his fellow liberals continue to conjure within the halls of Congress. Democrats continue to attempt to put an end to the Senate filibuster to nationalize elections, a strategy that would ensure continued fraud, and an unstoppable sequence of events that would bar any future Republican president or congressional majorities. 

Biden and the Democrats’ plan advancing in Congress would massively increase opportunities for election fraud, further erode confidence in our elections, and deliver an irreversible victory for the radical left.

what are Biden and his liberal comrades cooking up in Congress? Well according to Mike Pence, states would be forced to adopt universal mail-in ballots, to provide same-day voter registration, online voter registration, easier voter registration through motor vehicle department offices, and a minimum of 15 days of early voting. Duplicate voter registration records would abound, states’ voter-ID requirements would be dramatically weakened, and anyone, including undocumented people, who simply signed a sworn written statement claiming to be eligible to vote would be permitted to do so. The opportunities for voter fraud would explode.

While many of the promises that Biden made during his election campaign has faltered, I consider many of these to be lost battles, but the war rages on. Democrats, under the Biden Administration, will not stop until they can ensure an American future, rooted in eternal demise - forgoing any counter-conservative fight for freedom. 

In 1994, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos created an online platform that would manifest and epitomize American greed and impulsiveness. In less than a decade, Americans could order what they why wanted, when they wanted it, and have it delivered to their doorstep with little to no effort involved. 

Biden-led liberals want to model American institutions like our election process, exactly the same, in which there is little to no effort to cast your ballot. There is no standing in line, there is no verification process, there is nothing but the click of a button, and your ballot, or ballots, are cast. 

Everything bought and sold online is ripe for fraud. Every year, the FTC investigates billions and billions of consumer fraud within a system designed to satisfy our consumer demand. Personal information is stolen in an instant. Simply put, our greed is responsible for misery. 

Many Americans today want everything they can get, but without the work behind it. We expect to have what our neighbors have, and if we cannot afford or obtain it, we expect others to provide. We expect that it is the government's responsibility and role to pay our mortgages if we cannot - send our kids to school and college, pay our utility bills, and send us monthly deposits into our checking accounts so we can buy whatever we want.

Our Founders warned us of a strong federal government, it is up to us to heed that warning before it is too late.

When did feelings and a radical agenda become law of the land?

When did feelings and a radical agenda become law of the land?

January 8, 2022

The Supreme Court heard the arguments about the Biden mandates on Friday. I really should probably say the Biden decrees. One had to do with the OSHA mandate that affects over 80 million Americans. The second involves those who receive federal funding and a vaccine mandate for them to continue to receive such funding.

When the justices were asking their questions, it was clear that the liberal justices were only interested in asking questions that stuck with the liberal agenda and worked on the feelings of those involved.For example, Justice Kagan said, “We all know what the best policy is. I mean, by this point, two years later, we know that the best way to prevent spread is for people to get vaccinated and to prevent dangerous illness and death is for people to get vaccinated. That is by far the best.”

Perhaps she has not seen the news that COVID vaccines are not preventing the spread of COVID. They will not prevent someone from contracting the virus or spreading the virus. It is an outright lie of the Democrats to say that the vaccines will do this. Dr. Anthony Fauci and Joe Biden have both said this and it is a lie. 

Each liberal justice ignored the law, approaching the subject from the same perspective. That feelings and the radical agenda usurped the law. 

They certainly did not talk about how the CDC ruled just this week to allow healthcare workers to work WITH COVID in facilities to help with staffing. If the spread was such a risk, why are we allowing people to work with COVID? It's because it is about the vaccine agenda, not COVID. 

But the problem is that the case before the Supreme Court was not about COVID at all, but an overreach of federal agencies and their power. Some questions were asked about that, but in general, the liberal Justices ignored the topic and thought preferring to rule on feelings and an agenda. 

The hurt feelings and radical agenda are not supreme law of the land. They do not trump the Constitution or laws passed by Congress and the Supreme Court cannot make new laws from the bench. They exist to hold actions in our nation within the bounds of the Constitution and laws passed by Congress. The actions of the liberal justices on Friday were sickening and prove that the radical justices have no desire to protect the law of our land.

Choose freedom for 2022

Choose freedom for 2022

January 1, 2022

One year ago, America was stronger, was safer, and had a promised future under the leadership of then-President Donald Trump. Today, Americans are more uncertain about their futures and that of their families. The COVID-19 pandemic that Joe Biden criticized Trump over is even worse today than a year ago. For Democrats, there is no incumbent Republican President to attack; instead, now, it is the anti-socialists they so vehemently despise.

This past week, I came across a social media post of a past church congregational member of mine from year's past. In her liberal-laden rant, she publically chastised and ridiculed the non-vaccinated members of our community for her daughter contracting COVID. A teenager and fully vaccinated, her daughter was diagnosed and suffered COVID during the Christmas holiday break with a booster to boot. Her mother was letting it be known that it was the fault of the unvaccinated as to why her daughter was sick and was having to endure a horrible Christmas holiday. You heard me right; in typical liberal fashion, you are either with them and comply with their demands or against them - hell has no fury like a liberal scorned.

Being an unvaccinated person, I hardly shared this young child contracting and even transmitting COVID. I wasn't going to sit idly by and accept responsibility for something I, nor any member of my family, were accountable for. During my exchange with this troubled individual, who just so happens to be employed within the public school system, I was attacked on my stances on not only COVID but gun rights and abortion - both of which were not even remotely associated with the topic at hand - her daughter being sick. This supposed educator stated that the federal government's role was to interfere with public policy during an emergency, which quickly had me retort with a 60-second history lesson.

The role of our federal government, is detailed as minute in nature per the US Constitution and our very precious Bill of Rights, which protects our God-Given Freedoms from being trampled on by the federal government. Like so many plaguing the minds of our nation's youth, this disagreeable educator refuses to believe in the facts and instead firmly considers that thousands of federal tyrants in Washington DC have the legal right to dictate our everyday lives.

Our federal government has no right to dictate how you, me, or someone else chooses to live. Yes, we have established laws, and if broken, there are penalties for such. As explained in the gospels, I do not believe in lawlessness but free will. If you choose suitably, you will live well. If you choose evil, you and those around you are destined for doom. As we prepare to ring in the year 2022, it is this mentality that we must all fully understand. Look at what your federal government has done to you over the last year, or 2 1/2 years, for that matter. You cannot afford to survive; the dollar in your purse or wallet is worthless with each passing day. You cannot afford groceries, eat out, pay for education or healthcare, gasoline in your vehicle, and all the while, the government demands more from every one of us.

Just this week, it was announced that under Biden's Building Back Better mentality, any transaction that exceeds $600, which includes apps like CashApp, Venmo, and Zelle, will automatically report to the IRS. Not only goes Uncle Sam or Daddy Biden, for that matter, want to know how much you make, but also how much you spend or deposit into your bank account. Because the meek, lazy, and dependent in this country refuse to take accountability for themselves, they have opened the door for today's Democrats to take charge.

How many out there listening today chose to be a member of the conservative crusade so desperately needed for not only this year but for a generation to come? America needs you - our country needs your fight, commitment, and zeal to overcome and undo the failed policies of Joe Biden and his liberals. For 2022, I chose freedom - who's with me?

Don’t let Biden and Fauci Steal Christmas

Don’t let Biden and Fauci Steal Christmas

December 25, 2021

Christmas has been under attack for two straight years now. This year, Anthony Fauci said that you should stand at the door of your home and police family for their COVID vaccines.

You can take a COVID vaccine if you want. That should be your choice, and it should not come between you and your family for a holiday meal or gathering. Grandma and Grandpa should not be at the door asking to see vaccination cards before allowing their grandchildren to enter. Priests should not be policing the doors of church services. 

That is not the spirit of Christmas at all. But that's what Fauci and Biden have attempted to make Christmas this year.

There is more interest in promoting the vaccine passports to enter and exit from events than there is in promoting the reason that we are celebrating Christmas. We celebrate Christmas that our Savior was born and would end up being the sacrifice for the sin of the world. We are not here to celebrate Fauci and his development of a new coronavirus that continues to mutate. We are not here to celebrate members of Congress and government agencies profiting off of COVID vaccines.

We should be celebrating with family, spending time fostering relationships, and building memories. But it seems that is not possible in the Biden White House. Staffers are frustrated with the regime's level of control and their lack of ability to drive change. But that's the exact plan of Biden and the radical left. They want to control everything. 

We cannot let Biden and Fauci steal Christmas. We must remember what the season is about and not let them have control over the messaging, celebration, the reasons, or anything else. 

No matter what Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci want to say, they cannot take the place of Christmas and the reason for Christmas away.

A Communistic Christmas?

A Communistic Christmas?

December 18, 2021

Close your eyes for a moment and reminisce about your life just a short 11 months ago. Where were you? Where was your therapy? Were you and your spouse employed? How about your kids, were they in school? Were they vaccinated? Were they able to participate in extracurricular activities and engage in athletics?

How about your gas tank? - could you afford to fill up the family car? Did you have enough food - do you now? How about those groceries prices - have you and your family had to cut back on what you eat or remove items from your shopping list? Do you feel safe? Ever look out your front window and wonder if you and your family are at risk for crime? What about riding down the street, going to the bank, or even shopping during the holidays? Do you feel as if you are at risk?

What about America's stance in the world today? Are you anxious about international politics or the invasion of our country by undocumented or illegal aliens - some of which are documented criminals or terrorists? And what your future - do you believe yours and that of your family's is better today, December 18th, 2021, before January 20th?

Ok, open your eyes - as wide as you can. And if anyone listening today firmly believes that their lives and that of their loved ones are better today under the leadership of Joe Biden and the Democrat Party - then folks, 2022 ought to be interesting.

For four years, unemployment was non-existent, the cost of living was stable, and the future was bright for all Americans, especially minorities. Now, under the same old dumpster dive policies of today's Democrat Party, many Americans have lost faith in their president, their state and federal leadership, and the communistic push and pull that is tearing our nation apart.

Our country deserves better and had better. Look at the damage that Democrats have done to our country.

It really is all Joe Biden’s Fault

It really is all Joe Biden’s Fault

December 10, 2021

On Friday, mainstream media finally reported what we all knew: inflation is rising and becoming a problem across the country. It was actually up 6.8% in November, a significant increase. It's the highest it has been in nearly 40 years. 

But rather than actually placing the blame where it belonged, the mainstream media began to start saying we need more stimulus. They believe we need more child tax credit. We need more government bailouts and more government spending.

Those are the exact reasons inflation is on the rise. Failed policy is the reason that inflation is at a near 40 year high. But don't tell the mainstream media that. 

They do not want to admit that the blame for everything falls on the shoulders of Joe Biden. It is not the blame of demand, American workers, or American spending. It's to blame on Joe Biden and failed policy.

What pays in today’s Biden Society

What pays in today’s Biden Society

December 4, 2021

It pays to be a criminal in today's Joe Biden society. That's right, being a criminal in today's America pays and pays well. Take a look at what occurred this week in Los Angeles if you don't believe me - today's youth are engaging in smash-n-grab robberies of small businesses up and down the streets of downtown LA. And although the LAPD announced the arrest of at least 14 individuals as of Friday, you can be dang sure that their punishment will be light or non-existent.

Most of these 14 individuals arrested are minority offenders. Regarding race or upbringing, especially in today's liberal-led lunatic society, criminals are the victims and should be coddled and cared for, not convicted.

Please take a look at Darrell Brooks, who mowed down over 60 innocent people, killing 6 with his vehicle in Wisconsin in late November. After spending just ten days in jail, he now feels "dehumanized" and labeled unfairly as a monster.

This man ran over people attending a parade deliberately - to take their lives with absolutely no regard. Brooks' mother blamed Wisconsin's criminal justice system for failing her son, a longtime felony with a 50-page rap sheet detailing domestic violence, firearms, drugs, and other offenses.

Instead of correctly calling her son for what he truly is, a criminal and a deadbeat murderous monster, it is the fault of society and the fault of his skin color that led to him engaging in murder. Ladies and gentlemen, this man is also a convicted and registered child sex offender - and why this pay continued to walk the streets of America is an absolute disgrace - but instead of holding a man accountable for his action, it is the alligator tears of asinine liberals in today's America that are saying the system, not the suspect is to blame.

And the craziness doesn't just lay at the lawless; it also falls at the feet of the lazy in this country. But folks, it starts from the top. Look around - people aren't homeless; they are jobless. Anyone who wants a job can get a job; the problem is, Joe Biden and the rest of his pacifying posse have made it there. It isn't a requirement to be responsible.

Will we have a nation to be thankful for next year?

Will we have a nation to be thankful for next year?

November 27, 2021

The Biden regime used Thanksgiving as a reason to celebrate and promote its "accomplishments" this year. They wanted to claim that Americans were better off this year than they were last year under President Trump thanks to COVID vaccines and the American Rescue Plan. But the information was completely filled with lies and misleading information.

The first item was in regards to unemployment, where they claim that Biden has reduced unemployment. They conveniently leave out that many states were still under restrictions last Thanksgiving. Americans were unable to work in many instances if they wanted.  In the second item, they talked about COVID vaccines. They claimed that less than 1% of Americans were vaccinated last year while 71% are this year. But the COVID vaccines were not approved to be administered until AFTER Thanksgiving last year. 

The rest of the items had to do with the economy. They boasted in increased GDP, restaurant and bar sales, and retail sales. They again failed to mention the closed businesses that reopened, or the fact that massive inflation is driving higher sales also. They want to ignore that Americans are paying nearly double for gasoline this year and 50% more for groceries this year. 

Americans are not better off under Biden's agenda than they were a year ago. In fact, they are losing money under Biden. A significant amount of money. All while Biden promotes that he is redistributing wealth across the country. Americans should be thankful that the 2022 midterms are coming and that we can stop Biden's agenda in its tracks. Because if we don't, we may not have a nation to be thankful for next year.

Where is Christ among Challenges

Where is Christ among Challenges

November 20, 2021

On March 10, 1943, under the orders of Adolf Eichmann, one of Hitler's architects of the Final Solution to the Jewish Question, railcars began rolling into the country of Belarus. The purpose? To transport all of the Jews of Bulgaria to the Death Camps of Treblinka located in German Occupied Poland.

Bulgarian police began to round up Jews - going door-to-door as early as 3 in the morning. They were taken at gunpoint. Jewish collection centers were located in schools and other community centers. There was one problem, though - The Bulgarian People.

You see, when the train cars began to arrive, the Bulgarian people united to save the Jews of their country. Although they did not know the Bulgarian Jews' final destination was to the death camps and gas chambers, some rumors had circulated the cities and towns. The Bulgarian Church led the opposition to the deportation of the Bulgarian Jews.

If the Church allowed the Jews to be deported, they would have violated their obligations, the Rev. Boris Halapia stated. The word, WE MUST HELP. The whole Orthodox Church of Bulgaria came together - and sent a letter to the King, begging mercy for the Jews of the country. The Church also told the Chief of Police that they would not accept the mandate to deport the Jews from the country and would do anything possible to hinder the deportation efforts.

Church followers began to arrive at the centers, and they told the frightened Jews that they would not let anything happen to them. Crowds protested across the country; the Church printed thousands of forged Baptismal certificates for Jews, risking their own lives. The falsification of faith - saved lives!

It would take several months before Jews would return from hiding to their homes - much to the dismay of the Nazis. Hitler was furious. In a meeting with King Boris, he demanded the deportation of the Jews - Hitler went into a rage, King Boris recalled. Screaming; and going into a tirade, King Boris described - but Boris didn't surrender, not one inch.

Boris told Hitler that Bulgaria needed the Jews for labor projects. Hitler did not believe the King, but he didn't want to lose an ally. He finally bought what Boris was selling and agreed, but only if all the Jewish men were relocated from the cities to labor camps.

Some 20,000 Jews were indeed moved from the cities to the countryside - but not one of them outside the borders of Bulgaria. The deportation of the Jews of Bulgaria never took place. As a result, Bulgaria was the only country in Eastern Europe whose Jewish population remained the same throughout the Holocaust. It was known as The Miracle of the Jewish People Among the Jews of Bulgaria.

This miracle was never made public immediately following World War II because the Soviet Government suppressed it - sound familiar? And Why? Because Communist Soviet Regime didn't want the credit of the rescue of these Jews given to a monarchy and The Church - both of which are enemies of The Soviet Union and communism. It would take the fall of The Iron Curtain in 1989 for this to finally become known.

Folks, why do I tell this story? Is it because I am indeed a history nerd? Perhaps. But more to the point, I want to share that people can do many things when they come together for a common purpose. We are those people. As conservatives and challengers to our country's communistic push and pull, we are charged to protect what so many before us died to preserve.

Granted, we are not coming together to save a race or population from mass murder and extinction. Instead, we are here to preserve the American way of life - that has been being attacked from within our borders. We now live in a society where we allow hundreds and thousands of tyrants in Washington DC to tell us how they think, believe, and parent. We sit back and buy into a system that government, not God, knows best.

Americans should not fear their congressional representatives

Americans should not fear their congressional representatives

November 13, 2021

One congressional representative said that he actually contemplated and thought about shooting Americans this week. While Adam Kinzinger may be a Republican in title, he is anything but a Republican in action. He made the comments during an interview with Rolling Stone. 

Kinzinger was talking about the events of January 6 when he made the statement that he spent 6 hours in his office “hunkered down.” He said that he was contemplating shooting Americans during that time, and that’s a problem. 

Americans should not live in fear of their congressional representatives. There is absolutely no reason that an American should have to worry about being shot or killed by their own government. But it’s sad because we actually have to think that way now. 

Our government is responsible for the deaths of people in Benghazi, Afghanistan, and even Ashley Babbit in the Capitol on January 6. To be honest, the Democrats and fake Republicans like Kinzinger are responsible. They have created a situation where Americans have to be concerned their government is out to kill them. 

If you are not willing to accept their absolute rule, accept what the Democrats are willing to give you, and tolerate their tyranny, then they just want to eliminate you from society. They have no issue putting up a fence to keep you out, or shooting you. 

The American government is by the people and for the people. It seems that this group in Congress needs that reminder from the American people.
