Kids Waving US Flags Lamb Their "Independence Day" celebrations will be gone with the wind if the Fascists who run the World Economic Forum and the Council of Foreign Relations have their way!

“Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind, an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty.” - Founding Father, Samuel Adams

It’s a truly sad commentary on this present time in our nation’s history that a sizeable portion of Americans are so ignorant of their own past that many of them not only have never heard of Samuel Adams (the patriot not the beer) or other of our Founders and have never read their words, but are totally unaware  of the history of the time wherein the country they inhabit was born, from which country Americans declared their independence, and are uncertain as to the century in which those events occurred.  Next week these same Americans will celebrate “July 4th—Independence Day”—virtually in the dark as to just what “Independence Day” really means to Americans alive today and, in a broader sense, what it meant to those who have gone before us and who sacrificed to bring about or keep that “Independence” of the U.S.—independence that many on this troubled planet aspire to come among us to enjoy—independence that sinister domestic and foreign enemies seek to take from us.

The battle is between freedom and slavery - between light and darkness! Between deciding to serve God or Satan!
The battle is between freedom and slavery - between light and darkness! Between deciding to serve God or Satan!

“Socialism, along with its illegitimate son communism, is advancing around the world.  Socialism appeals to man’s desires to get something for nothing through the agency of an omnipotent State government.

…Under socialism, the individual is given little incentive to invent, produce a better product, or to be more efficient so a product can be sold at a lower price and thus benefit all of society.  The State determines everything.  Socialism is rarely democratic; that is, the people have little to say about who gets elected to office….”

Poor old
Poor old "Common Sense" destroyed by poltroons who had none!

A few years ago a friend sent me an e-mail that ostensibly was an “obituary”, but not for a person.  It was for that eminently practical commodity we’ve always referred to as ‘common sense'.  I’ve changed it a bit, and I don’t know who the original author was, but let me share it with you:

THE DEATH OF COMMON SENSE

“Today we mourn the passing of an old, old friend, whose name was ‘Common Sense’.  He was with us for so long that no one alive today knows for sure just how ‘old’ he was, since his birth records were lost long ago in the maze of Washingtonian ‘red tape’.  He’ll be missed, though—that’s for certain.  Common Sense will be remembered, at least by the more “experienced” citizenry, as having taught us valuable lessons, such as:

Once upon a time the world was new, and better. Once upon a time love and common sense prevailed. Once upon a time...
Once upon a time the world was new, and better. Once upon a time love and common sense prevailed. Once upon a time...

We all have them—memories, that is.  Inevitably,  some of them may fade with the passing of the years because nature is often cruel as our brain cells succumb to time’s attacks.  But many of our precious recollections of the past stay with us for a lifetime.  This truth was emphasized to me several years ago when, on a local radio station, I listened to what I believe to be one of the most beautiful and haunting secular songs I’ve ever heard.  It brought tears to my eyes then, not so much for any memories it stirred in me, sad to say, but for the depth of emotion projected by the man who was singing it.  His name is John McDermott, and he was the founder of the famous singing group known as “The Irish Tenors”.  I urge you to enter “John McDermott UTube” on your browser, and click on the video of his performance of “The Old Man”, a beautiful song he sang in memory of his late fatherYou will see, and hear, a truly special performance, I assure you.  It still brings tears to my eyes whenever I watch it, as it brought tears to McDermott’s eyes as he sang it.  (Look for the version where John is sitting while he sings, and is holding his late father’s walking stick and cap).

Has “Q” Finally Been Identified?

Q 2020

Last time I discussed what has been called the “Q” Phenomenon, and I reviewed a brief history of a topic that has, or at least had, much of the country conjecturing about just who “Q” really was, and what were his/their motives.  We also opened the “sensitive” (to many “Q” fans) topic of how American patriots should define “Q”—considering that he (they) hasn’t posted any more drops since December 8, 2020, and considering the poor “track record” of the accuracy of all those posts.  So is “Q” a quack, a quisling, or are we dealing with “conspiracy theory”—OR a true conspiracy for good or ill-- OR an actual force for freedom in this rapidly disintegrating nation?  Making a call on this is fraught with many questions, more than a few suspicions of “Q’s” motivation, and a realization that a satisfactory explanation that will satisfy all my readers is well nigh impossible.  So let me give you my conjectures and a somewhat “educated opinion”.

Foolishness? Wishful Thinking? US Government
Foolishness? Wishful Thinking? US Government "False Flag" to keep pesky patriots occupied? Something even more sinister?

Before we dig into the “Q” phenomenon, let’s define some terms:

  • QUACK: Obviously, the usual sound that a duck makes; but in this context, the derisive term aimed at a member of a profession, such as an attorney or, most often, a doctor, when it is discovered that said “professional” was never trained in that discipline but has been practicing it for a long time, many times injuring his/her victims either financially or medically, or both;
  • QUISLING: A traitor who collaborates with an enemy force occupying one’s country. Named after Vidkun Quisling, a Norwegian army officer who founded Norway’s Fascist Party in 1933. He met with Adolph Hitler in December 1939 and urged him to invade and occupy Norway, which Hitler did in April, 1940.  Quisling served as the puppet or figurehead President of Norway for the Nazis from 1940 to 1945.  After Norway’s liberation in 1945, Quisling was executed for treason;
  • CONSPIRACY THEORY: Something that is believed by either a small or large group of people, sometimes true and sometimes not true, and usually called “silly” or “ridiculous” by those at whom the “facts” are aimed, and which are usually put forth to try to explain the “true story” behind a particular real world event or an unfavorable shift in the culture of a nation or nations.

Liberty's Statue has been weeping for a long time. With good cause!
Liberty's Statue has been weeping for a long time. With good cause!

Before I begin this plunge into the heart of liberal dogma, let me state for the record that I am not against a degree of legal, restricted, and needful immigration.  The vast majority of Americans living today had ancestors who emigrated from some other country and into the U.S. in the past.  I am one of them, for both my maternal grandfather and grandmother came, LEGALLY, from the country of Croatia early in the 20th century, and I’m grateful that they did.  America has been peopled by, and generally benefitted from, immigrants who came here from mostly European countries (with some exceptions) over much of the 19th and early 20th centuries.  Except for some of the immigrants from Oriental nations, these European immigrants usually assimilated quickly, or at least their children did, and most became naturalized, proud and useful Americans, the vast majority of whom contributed much more to our nation that they took from it.  Unfortunately, the same cannot honestly be claimed in regards to the disparate dregs of humanity who, legally or mostly otherwise, are entering our nation today.

“And he said, Hearken ye all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem,  and thou, King Jehoshaphat:  Thus saith the Lord unto you, Fear you not, neither be afraid for this great multitude:  FOR THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS, BUT GOD’S.”  (2nd Chronicles 20:15-17: 1599 Geneva Bible).

Who You Will Serve?
Who Will You Serve?

For those who are unaware, the 1599 Geneva Bible was the Bible used by our separatist Pilgrim Forefathers (they didn’t like the KJV because they really didn’t like King James, who had vowed to “harry them out of the land” of England because they would not conform to the teachings of the Church of England).  Certainly it was read and preached from during the hazardous and tedious 66-day voyage from England to the New World during that increasingly stormy and  harsh Fall on the Atlantic Ocean in 1620.  Fierce storms and huge waves and wretched living conditions below decks would have turned most modern people back from whence they came.  Not so for these 102 stalwart souls who had determined to separate from their old world and, trusting God for guidance and protection, build a new and religiously separate colony in the wilderness of North America.

Freedom is never without cost.
Freedom is never without cost.

As Americans, we all should know that the cost of maintaining our freedoms—the liberties for which untold numbers of Americans have given their “last full measure of devotion” to defend, is always high and likely to get even more costly in the years ahead, as the powerful forces of collectivist tyranny clash, verbally or otherwise, with the forces of American Patriots determined to RESIST the diabolical agendas of those Marxist devils who are determined that they will prevail over us. 

I’d like to share a touching poem written in 1981 by Kelly Strong:

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

“I watched the flag pass by one day, it fluttered in the breeze.

A young Marine saluted it, and then he stood at ease.

Back in the days when I could move my legs and arms without joint pain, and before the force of gravity became much “stronger”, I used to do a lot of hiking in the North and South Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains with my kids and their friends, or with our adult friends.  Finding the correct path in the high country, surrounded by rocks and trees, and often cloud cover, was very important.  We all loved “the high country” and we spent many wonderful weekends or parts of vacation weeks exploring well-known, and some not so well known, great views and landmarks in “our” mountains.  In every case, having trail maps and using good observation and common sense made our hikes both enjoyable and safe.  Following the right path made ALL the difference.

The original version of this moving story seems to have originated from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and was sent from that site to a long-time friend of mine several years ago, and then from him to me.  I’ve changed it in minor ways, here and there, but the original story is not mine. It was titled: “TAKE MY SON”

“And a voice from Heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased”   Matthew 3:17

A wealthy FATHER and his SON loved to collect rare works of art.  They had everything in their expensive collection, from Picasso to Raphael to Da Vinci. All very old and very valuable. They would often sit together and admire the great works of art THE FATHER owned.  When the Vietnam War broke out, THE SON left his FATHER and joined the military and went to war.  He was very courageous, but tragically he died in battle while saving the life of another soldier.  THE FATHER was notified and grieved deeply over the death of his ONLY SON.

U.S. CONSTITUTION—ARTICLE V1—CLAUSE 2:

“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof, and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THE UNITED STATES, shall be the supreme law of the Land, and the Judges in every State shall be BOUND THEREBY, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary, notwithstanding.”  (Emphasis  mine—whl).

There’s an old “tool” hidden in the above Clause 2 of   Article V1—IT’S A POWERFUL TOOL CALLED NULLIFICATION!  It doesn’t require another amendment to our constitution.  It sure doesn’t require some long, drawn out, very controversial, and DANGEROUS, constitutional convention triggered by Article V and its gullible “Convention of States” crowd.  The principle of “nullification” that our State lawmakers could---and must---use to enforce our constitution has always been there, incorporated in that document from the beginning by our very wise Framers.

The “Convention of States” proponents, headed by Mark Meckler, constantly reassure the doubters and the skeptics (of which I am one) that their COS would be strictly “limited to proposing amendments related to the listed topics”.  In actuality, however, that is their usual “soothing syrup” spread over the gullible among their followers and the uneducated amongst the population, because any constitutional convention (and their COS IS a CON CON) could, and conceivably would, result in a RUNAWAY CONVENTION that could reverse or eliminate any number of our current constitution’s limitations on the power of the federal government (at least the way our Founders intended—not that the criminals and buffoons in Congress pay much attention to our constitution any more) and its interference in the lives of the American people.  Sad to say, but a new CON CON/COS could actually accomplish the SAME goals that many of its advocates claim to be fighting against.

In this long and ongoing discussion regarding the merits or demerits of our state legislatures submitting applications to Congress ordering that body to call for a new Article V Constitutional Convention, we must again reiterate that there are many genuine American patriots in the ranks of that movement, and more than a few scoundrels.  Several well-known and well-respected conservative leaders have endorsed this proposal as the only way to “save” our nation from its very long addiction to spending far more money than it ever takes in in the form of tariffs, taxes, fines, fees, etc.  Large numbers of everyday Americans have also endorsed this call for a new CON-CON, or as its leading advocate, Mark Meckler, calls it—a “Convention of States”.  Just within the past few weeks, a well-respected talk show host on the Upstate’s most popular talk radio station hosted a short discussion on the subject of a “Convention of States”.  Mostly it was a one-sided PRO-COS discussion featuring a guest who is a strong proponent of this COS and who works for Jim DeMint who, we should know, is also strongly in favor of a CON-CON, or a COS as they love to call it, as though a COS is somehow “different” than an Article V CON-CON.  Well, it is NOT!  It’s the same thing deceptively wrapped in glittering ribbons—a wonderful present just waiting for the American people to unwrap and begin to enjoy living under the U.S. Constitution as our Founders wanted us to live.  Yeah, sure it is.  Unfortunately, the host of this radio show allowed very little “discussion” of this topic and cut short the arguments of the three or four callers who disagreed with his obvious pro-COS stand. Too bad—that show could have been a genuine learning experience, as it usually is.

ALERT:  Please be sure to read the URGENT-TAKE ACTION information at the end of this article. 

(Note:  I am indebted to one of the foremost constitutional scholars in our nation today, with her vast knowledge and her long struggle against the present dangers of calling for an Article V Constitutional Convention by CONGRESS, and for her determination to never give up—to keep on keeping on—to keep educating and fighting in this mad desire on the part of some of our fellow Americans to risk scrapping or amending out of existence the 1787 Constitution codified by dedicated patriots and sent down the halls of time to the present.  Her name is Joanna Martin, and she writes under the “pen name” of “Publius Huldah”. It is from her constant and patient education of this writer, me, over a long period of time that I draw the information and the inspiration to write about the possible dangers posed by a new CON CON.  Our Founders warned AGAINST ever calling another constitutional convention.  Joanna has long heeded their warnings, and has sent them out near and far—a modern-day ‘Paul Revere’ alerting her countrymen that there are those with “sinister motives” already among us, the COS “redcoats” are threatening, and that they have taken aim at our historic constitution.  Joanna is the MASTER, and I am her follower in this battle. In that, I am not alone.  Thank you, Joanna.  Now let us proceed.)

As we discovered in Parts 1 & 2 of this article, the Christian missionary named John Birch lived a short but incredibly dedicated and adventurous life.  Back in the 1930s, hundreds of faithful Christians from many denominations devoted part or all of their lives to missionary work in the large and chaotic country of China.  John Birch became a part of that dedicated band, and as soon as he was trained and prepared, he immediately went to where he knew that God wanted him to be.

Last time we discovered how Birch met Col. Jimmy Doolittle and several other flyers from the raid launched from USS Hornet on April 18, 1942.  John accompanied Doolittle and the others and led them to safety in unoccupied China.  He did the same (with the help of Chinese patriots and guerillas) for about 60 of the other Doolittle Raiders.  It was only a short time before Col. Jimmy Doolittle informed Maj. General Claire Chennault, Commander of the famed “Flying Tigers” (the AVG, or American Volunteer Group that existed from 1937 to 1942 in occupied China), of Birch’s heroics in leading his aircrews to safety.  Chennault was already a legend among the Free Chinese for the great success achieved by his “Flying Tigers”, the all-volunteer mercenary force who flew Curtiss P-40 Warhawks with shark mouths painted on their noses against superior Japanese aircraft and attacked enemy ground targets.
