One of the most divisive issues facing Americans today is the issue of immigration into the U.S. – most especially the truly troubling ILLEGAL variety of immigration!  For decades, and probably much longer, we have been faced with the specter of hordes of “undocumented” invaders crossing over our borders, or overstaying their visas, for sundry purposes --  ostensibly to seek a better life for themselves and their children-- and become “WARDS OF THE STATE” far too often, and in some cases to infiltrate their poisonous hatred of our relatively free American culture into our body politic, as they seek to extend  their insane and Satanically-induced Islamic or Chinese Communist Party beliefs and violence from their own despotic nests of snakes into our freedom-oriented land.

I’ve used the following sources to tell this true tale of almost unspeakable heroism, from which I learned of this story and from which I quote freely and paraphrase in my own words:  1) Transcript of a 2010 report about Witold Pilecki by National Public Radio; 2) Wikipedia; 3) Jewish Virtual Library.

Witold Pilecki (1900-1948). Pictured in his Polish Army uniform, and also in his prisoner's uniform in front of the infamous Ausch Witz Concentration Camp in Polan where he had voluntarily let himself be imprisoned from 1940-1943. The sign over the front entrance of Aushc Witz reads in German:

The enemies of our Constitutional freedoms are building their soon-to-be-completed wall of tyranny. American Patriots need to "Tear Down This Wall!"

Getting the U.S.A. out of the Marxist dominated and controlled United Nations Organization is the question posed in the title to this series.  Well, is it possible to extract ourselves at this time in history from an organization that was conceived as a tyrannous world government from its inception (even though many good and patriotic people at that time would not have believed it), considering that more and more Americans now understand that the slow but steady erosion of personal freedom and our nation’s independence was the U.N.’s goal from the beginning?  Considering that the main target of the sinister Marxists who set up the U.N. was always to end the SOVEREIGNTY of our nation, that IS the most pertinent question to consider, isn’t it?  The U.N.’s decades long battle against the constitutional rights of Americans—especially our rights to free speech, freedom of the press, and most of all—our 2nd Amendment rights to “keep and bear arms” (which the collectivists fear the most)—is wrapped up in their one main goal:  The destruction of the SOVEREIGNTY—the independence--of the United States and its merging into their “Borg-like” hive of a one-world government!

John McManus, retired long-time CEO of The John Birch Society, usually has a section in the monthly “Bulletin” of the JBS dedicated to “GETTING US OUT! OF THE UNITED NATIONS”, and provides needed information for both members, prospective members, and all dedicated patriots on the devious and sovereignty-destroying machinations emanating from that den of Marxist mendacity that has occupied some of the most valuable real estate in New York City since 1945.  (The final sale from the original land developer was arranged by Nelson Rockefeller, globalist supreme, and financed by his father, John D. Rockefeller, Jr.  The 18 acre site reportedly cost Rockefeller $8.5 million).

From its inception in 1945 the UN has been contrary to the best interests of the American people. It is time to "GET OUT!"

“It has been the dream of many people for over 200 years to create a one-world government over the entire planet to bring people together, thereby preventing war between nations and peoples—universal peace.

“It is a grand ideal, and many have been convinced that such an entity would indeed create universal peace.  There is only one thing wrong with it, and that is that human nature and the nature of government get in the way.  It recalls to mind the adage of the British Lord Acton: ‘Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely’.

“The nature of government is to take  unto itself more and more power, and with that power a level of corruption.  There is no exception to this natural process in history, ancient or modern, because it is based on human nature and the nature of government itself.”

Art Thompson, ‘The United Nations: Unity Through Tyranny’, published by The John Birch Society through Western Islands, Appleton, Wisconsin, 2020, p. vii.

Good advice for God's people, because in this age we often do seem to doubt what God told us in both the darkness and light!

Those of you who have read my “ancient” columns in the now “extinct” print copy version of The Times Examiner (from 1999 to July, 2018), and in its digital version since July of 2018, know how much I love classical music.  But as I’ve said several times, I also enjoy other genres of music, particularly the “Big Band” music of the 1930’s and 1940’s (Glenn Miller—oh yeah), Dixie Land jazz, the music and songs of George and Ira Gershwin, the music of Sigmund Romberg, and especially much of the wonderful music of Rogers and Hammerstein from their great Broadway musicals over many years; and I adore the “old-timey” music of George M. Cohan, that “Yankee Doodle Dandy” who wrote hundreds of great songs for his musicals over the decades that stretched over the first half of the 20th century.  And I love the music of the Christian Church, which is a musical genre all its own.  All of this glorious music was written during “the good old days when music was musical”.  Too bad that it isn’t so in our day and age.

Hail to the State

"Hail to the State," or "Sieg Heil" to "The Fuehrer!" The Italian Fascists and the German Nazis were brothers under the skin. Left Wing extremists who tried to spread their poison over the world. Their descendants are doing the same today! It's called "The New World Order" or "The Great Reset." But it's the same old totalitarianism!

“If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools!” - PLATO (427 B.C.-347 B.C.)

Most Americans have heard the word “fascistbandied about quite a lot in recent years.  Every so-called “mainstream media” outlet is proclaiming that fascists are evil racists (they are both), noxious “right wing extremists” (nope) who are in league with former President Trump (not true) and his “bad, bad, bad” conservative/populist/Republican allies in the ranks of “The Basket of Deplorables”, as that truly despicable Deep Stater, Comrade Hillary Clinton, labeled us.  (Before his untimely death, no less an authority than Rush Limbaugh said that Hillary was a communist, so I’m just using her appropriate title).

Government Spends too Much Reagan

A long time ago, before there even was the United States of America, we had a lot of angry folks living in what were then British Colonies.  One of them came up with a “catchy” slogan, and a lot of the other angry people thought that it made a lot of sense.  Eventually, they got so perturbed that they revolted against the King and his political cronies in faraway England, and established their own new country—the U.S.A.  You recall James Otis’  “slogan” that set them off, I’m sure:  “TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION IS TYRANNY”!  Indeed it was.  Sad to say, taxation with representation (our present state of affairs here in the U.S.A.) has turned out to be an even greater tyranny than that which so upset our Revolutionary ancestors that they wrote our country’s birth certificate, our “Declaration of Independence”, and “threw the rascals out.”

Who really
Who really "runs" the USA? We the people or the media-money of the oligarchy?

Last time we discussed the political spectrum, i.e. what forms of political thought were on the left, center, and right of that imaginary line.  We concluded that the U.S., originally established as a Constitutional Republic in 1787, was about in the middle of that spectrum, or somewhat to the right on that spectrum (we’ve traditionally always been described accurately as a “center right” nation). But are we truly a “center right” nation any longer?  Increasingly, I’m confused as to where the government of our country really fits, and I don’t think that I’m alone in my confusion.  To muddy the issue even more, we’re constantly reminded by the “talking heads” on our alphabet “news” broadcasts  and the cable news “gurus” that the U.S. is a “Democracy”.  Most of them speak out of purposely induced upon them ignorance, but a few of them surely know better.  So what are we—a “democracy” or a “constitutional republic”?  Or something else?

"Left Wing Extremists" believe in total government power and control. "Right Wing Extremists" believe in anarchy or no government. Both are dangerous to freedom. "Middle-of-the-Roaders" believe in limited government power controlled by the "chains of the Constitution." Got it?

Confusion reigns supreme in the puzzling and sometimes rancorous discussions of who or what is a “right winger” and a “left winger” in the realm of modern and often contentious and deliberately misleading American political debate.  Most of us have been programmed for decades by the liberal “mainstream” (left-wing, fake news) media (most newspapers, ALL TV network news, talking “heads” on MOST cable news shows, etc.) to accept their incorrect descriptions that communists and socialists are “left-wing”, and fascists and Nazis and white supremacists are “right-wing”.  Americans are often dismayed when they discover that what they’ve been told is truth by those they trusted is a semantic and political deception and an outright factual LIE!

MoonBats 2022

Beware! Moonbats are carriers of the deadly "Obama Coccus Stupidicus" virus, which is invariably fatal to traditional Americanism if exposed to it over a long period of time!

We’ve all seen them in person or on video:  Little flying mammals who come out around dusk in search of insects or fruit to eat.  A few of them seek out animal blood to drink, and are called “vampire” bats.  Most people are afraid of bats (which don’t get in your hair), but except for the remote possibility of being bitten by a rabid bat, they are harmless to humans and generally are beneficial to mankind.  All except one.  The moonbat is truly dangerous to human safety and happiness because it is wingless, cunning, untrustworthy, and often resorts to perfidy, subterfuge, mendacity, and violence to survive and attack its opponents.  The more powerful of that nasty flock have NO qualms over harassing  or destroying any living being that dares to oppose their dark agenda of destruction and lust for power and control.  Above all other living creatures, the moonbat is to be both feared and loathed, for it has sold its soul to the Prince of Darkness, and spends its life seeking others to deceive and destroy!

Some have suggested that the "Twilight Zone" series was more "realistic" than modern-day America! What a sad commentary on what we have brought to pass if that is true!

I’ll wager that some of you also feel like we’re living in some kind of “reincarnation” of Rod Sterling’s great old TV series, ‘The Twilight Zone’, where things never were what they appeared to be.  For certain we’re no longer living in ‘normal times’ (if indeed we ever did), nor are we living among a population of mostly ‘rational’ people, sad to say. What is our modern ‘twilight zone’? Plainly, it’s a formerly great and Christian-oriented nation still euphemistically called the “United” States, where once plain-as-day and totally accepted FACTS are denied and absolutely preposterous propositions and outrageous beliefs are asserted by hordes of mouth-breathing buffoons with “straight faces to a sea of nodding heads”, as William Allen recently observed in Impact (a publication of D.James Kennedy Ministries)

Lamb Captain Eddie Rickenbacker

Above - Captain Eddie Rickenbacker (1890-1973) beside his "Spad" fighter, Fall of 1918. The fuselage insignia was the famous "Hat in the Ring" of the 94th AERO Squadron of which he was the leader. He became America's "Ace of Aces" with 26 German aircraft shot down, for which he was awarded 10 "Distinguished Service Crosses" and "The Medal of Honor."

(I’m indebted to the following two sources for the basics of this story of great courage and determination to survive, a story mostly unknown to Americans of today—but well known to me because Rickenbacker was one of the “heroes” of my youth, and from both of which I quote freely):

  • An article titled: “World War 1: American Ace Eddie Rickenbacker”, from THOUGHTCO.COM, by Kennedy Hickman, March 19, 2018;
  • An article titled: “Eddie Rickenbacker Adrift in the Pacific Ocean”, from DEFENSE MEDIA NETWORK.COM, by Dwight Jon Zimmerman, November 15, 2012.

Antique Red Biplanes with the sun on their wings. These are just one of my favorite things.

I’ve written a couple of versions of this article  over the years, and it always gave me a few chuckles to think about some of my “favorite things”.  In this time of stress and demands by our ‘wanna-be” political masters  for “societal change” (whether we like it or not), perhaps you’ll get a few much needed laughs to brighten your day, if only for a moment or two.  Many of us recall, with lots of nostalgia and fondness, I’m sure, that great musical film, “The Sound of Music”, starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.  We saw it in Charlotte, N.C. for the very first time in 1966, and I confess we were delighted by the wonderful music and songs of the late Rodgers and Hammerstein (who are among my favorite modern song/music composers), and the interesting script, based only VERY LOOSLEY  on the real history of the Von Trapp Family Singers of Austria, prior to WW11.  The character of Maria, the young orphan novice who would “never become a nun”, was played by that great actress and singer, Julie Andrews, who is now 86 years old but still partially active, although I don’t believe that she sings any longer, her once magnificent FOUR OCTAVE voice damaged years ago by a botched surgery to remove nodules from her vocal cords.

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!

“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….”

Gary DeMar, Ruler Of  The Nations, Dominion Press, 1987 (P. 24)
